That wine of the Republican party
tliut may le aply icrmed the reaction
ist, and who do not cure to see their
party mni; nu another ivtreattr iv Mos
cow, have, iv the salt- ot Illinois,
hiought out Editor llfdill as their can
didate for I'niud Stales senator to re
place Cullum, the uliia-proieetwmi> ,
who made it clear during the eatnuaicn
that be rej>resented that wing whici
may be terimd the restorationist.
We are somewhat surprised that the
reactionists in Minnesota, who consti
tute by far the largest portion of Unit
party, have not also taken advantage of
the opportunity give them in the ne
cessity of electing a senator this year to
replace Senator Washburn, by bringing
out some cenllcii'an in the party who
has been prominently idmtitird with
that wins: of the party in the past.
Senator Washbiun by his vote for the
McKiiiiey bill, and by his efforts to
secure Hie passage of an ami-op
tion bill, which is but one fur
ther step in paternalistic regulating,
has identified himself thoroughly witb
the restorationists, and should such a
misfortune befall the country as their
coining into power again in lsW> he may
be counted among the ullra-paternalists
of his party.
• Naturally, as an out-and-out free
trade paper, we prefer seeing a reac
tionist elected senator to that of" a recto*
rationist; and. although the Democrats
will have no (laud in the coming tight,
we cannot resist the opportunity of su<£
icestiiiK to tho milder wing of the Be
publican party of this state that they
have, as Dick Walsh would say, "111
our midst.' v a gentleman who represents
them fully; and is to Minnesota what
Meiiiil is to Illinois. Everybody at all
conversant with the situation in the past
will recognize at once that we have
in mind the Honorable Joseph Wliee
lock. the venerable editor of the Pio
neer Press. Like Mr. Mediil, he used
his eminent talent in trying to save
his parly lrom rushing down the steep
hill into the sea of ultra-protection, and
so urgent was he in his resistance that
Republicans of the more ultra type were
not at all hesitant in declaring that Mr.
VVheelock was no better than a Demo
crat, and that, if the facts were known,
ho was probably a member of the Cob
den club.
We :«ll recall the vigorous language
with which lie denounced that latest
movement sheolward of his party, and
the srreat satisfaction after the cam
paigns of '90 and u .r2 with which he told
his compatriots that "1 told you so."
Like Mr. Medill, too, he lias been loyal
to his parly duriinr campaigns. When
the conventions have met and calmly
rejected his satre advices, he has meekly
liowed his head to the mandaie. buckled
on his armor and sallied rorth to meet
the enemy with as much vieor as the
most stupidly and consistently loyal of
them ail.
it is true that one of the present sen
ators is a resident of St. Paul, but in the
great questions of national concern so
small a consideration as that should not
be permitted for a moment to stand in
the way of the performance of a great
duty. Besides this, Mr. Davis belongs
to the restoration wing, having commit
ted himself fully in his speeches in the
senate and in the. campaign to the ultra
policy which bears the baptismal name
ot McKinley. As lie must remain th*re
for four years longer, ana as he repre
sents one wing of his party, it is no
more than right Miat the other wing
should have its representative there;
and surely no gentleman in the state is
so fairly and fully represeiitai.ve of
that wing as is Mr. WheelocS. Patriotic
Republicans, therefore, who have not
forgotten the lessons of 'do atid'US,
.should immediately organize a move
ment to send Mr. Wheelock tv> the
United Slates senate in the place of Mr.
Washburu. There would be some si;;
niticance in such action which the elec
tion of a g ntleman like, well, like John
Zelch would not have. We trust that
this counsel will not be the less consid
erately treated because it is not asked
In Florida, the land of flowers. Dr.
Price's Baking Powder is favorite. It
leads in all the states.
The Minnesota Democratic association
evidently does not share the opinion of
Dr. Donuelly, on the one hand, that the
Democratic party is moribund, nor the
despondency that afflicts so many, es
pecially the defeated. Its executive
committee has taken up the line of work,
believing that now, of all times, there is
the greatest need not only of Democrats
being Democrats.but of beinir more act
ive, vigorous and insistent Democrats
than ever. It proposes, so far as its ef
forts will avail, that the party change
its attitude from one of opposition to
one of aggressiveness, audtnat, haud in
hand with this, the work of organizing
the forces thus started be begun. While
the declaration of the Chicago platform
was a distinct departure in the boldness
with which it attacked protection, it
was not an aggressive movement in the
sense that it offered any distinctive
policy. One of the most meaningless
phrases in use iv politics is that of a
"tariff for revenue only." It lias no
more precision thau the Republican
shibboleths of "protecting American
labor," or of "buiJdiuf up a home
market." It is a term which Is all
things to all men. It covers views
ranging from a practical free trade such
as that of England to a protective tariff
such as Mr. Gorman and Bnce and men
of their school incubated.
The victory of '90, and especially that
of '92, was the result of an attack upon
the position of the enemy, and not of
the advocacy of any definite policy. As
the Republicans years ago said little of
their policy upon the slavery question,
but gaiued power by attacking the
enormity of slavery, so the Democrats
were given power, not so much on
what they proposed to do as upon the
success with which they had attacked
the policy of protection. The inevitable
result was that when the Democratic
representatives came together th«re wag
Infinite variety of opiuion as to what
should be done, and out of this con
fusion came that hermaphrodite tariff
bill, which which was neither fish,
flesh nor fowl.
The party cannot bope to win agaiu
as a party of opposition. If it is to
win again the confidence of the
voters, it must formulate a distinct
policy and urge its acceptance
upon its merits. It must either
declare for free trade absolute, or for a
practical free trade which will levy duty
upon articles not made in this country
aud upon imports of such as pay inter
nal tax. It roust convince voters that
it is right, rattier than that the other
side is wrong. Taking eithtr of these
positions, but preferably the first, it
will have no difficulty in convincing a
majority of the voters of the state that
it v right. Hand in hand with this
should go the work of organization.
Not the building up of a machine to be
used by ambitious and unscrupnlous
men for ttieir personal advantage, but
organization for the purpose «f making
the toigner work of the party more ef
fective; to devtiop leadais and not
create bosses, and for the purpose of
producing order out of the el hum into
wiich boasistn has precipitated the party
in this s:»te.
The association has initiated this
work by the appointment nf two com
mittees, one for tne purpose of fonnu
la'inc an address «o the voters of the
state, and the«ther to prepare a sltnplo
plan of oriron.ftition to be recommended
to the Democrats of th« different coun
ties of the state, unless the *»tate central
committee should decide to cull a.con
vention of the Democrats of the state
for the purpose of adopting a uniform
plan of organization. The latter com
mittee will also take into consideration
the lines of most etfective work for the
tssoetattM, both in its propaganda and
in its field of organization.
There is dire need of such work, not
only in this state, but in every suite in
ilia nation. The result of this election
has been to cive an immense im
petus to the 9 icialistlc tendencies in
which the nation lias been swim
ming f«ir so many years. Republicans
look upon it as a vindication Tor their
tentative step towards state socialism,
and the Populists gather fresh couratro
from it as promising the creation of
forces which will eventuate in the adop
tion of their policies. The contest of
individualism against collectivism is
more serious today than in any other
period in the hi&ory of this nation. It
is no time for Democrats represeniliig
the vital principle of the freedom of tha
individual to bo cast down and discour
aged. If traitors have betrayed them
and cowards have surrendered the fruit
of our victories, there is all the more
necessity of punting the councils, of
writing a bicker declaration of pur
pose, and, bucklinir lighter the waist
belt, so courageously into a new strug
gle for a greater measure of freedom
for man.
Thai is a very well told but not un
usual story that comes to us from Chi
cago, of the city railway company lhat
wished to get an ordinance through the
council extending its privileges; of a
reluctant and dilatory council; of the
discovery that the passage of the bill
could be facilitated if a little "cigarette
money 1' could be distributed among the
aldermen; ot the intimation that $50,000
had been put in the hands of a discreet
and trusty person to be paid to the
aldermen for ttie purpose of purchasing
cigarettes when th« passage was se
cured; of the sudden acceleration in the
movement of the ordinance through the
council; of the expectant crowd of alder
men waiting for thu almoner to come
with their cigarette money; of his sud
den and entire disappearance with the
money, and the lamentations and grief
of the disappointed aldermen. One of
these, more frank than his fellows, ad
mits that they ought not to have ex
pected that a feilow would play fair
with that quantity of boodle in his
We say that this is not an unusual in
cident, although it may not happen so
frequently in that particular manner as
it does in others. The fellows who do
not stay bought in city councils and in
legislatures are not an tnfivquent ex
perience with the men who buy that
kind of cattle. Instances have been
known where senatorial candidates had
invested from one to two thousand dol
lars in the vote of some mm member
who kept the money and voted the other
way. Instances have also been known
where large land grants have been
pending before legislatures, in which
some member coolly pocketed the sev
eral thousand dollars lie secured for his
vote and then r (.'fused to carry out his
In the minor matter ot candidates
running for local offices many have had
a similar and bitter experience. They
have gone into their campaign witn a
wad of money, trusting to its magical
power to obtain votes, never failing in
finding any quantity of men who were
willing to take their money and promise
them their vote and "hifiooence," but
whose vote and influence failed to ap
uear in the returns. Many a candidate
has been amazed at the treachery which
he found in the conventions and at the
polls. Tliis is so common a thing that
it is not at ail creditable to the intelli
gence of neti that they will continue
the practice of the use of money wiien
its use involves mural turpitude both on
their part and on the part uf the re
The man who will sell his vote,
whether for a measure in the legislature
or for some minor candidate for a local
orhce. Is a man so radically dishonest
that no man in his senses would trust
him with the money he asks for his
vote. That so many men do give money
for these purposes seems to argue that
many men are out of their senses in
such matters. Probably the occasional
instances where men are bought and do
as they agre« serve to keep alive their
glimmering faith in human nature and
make them the ready victims of the more
disreputable vote-sellers, if, indeed, a
comparisou is possible. Ordinary lossas
of money meet with the sympathy of
one's friends, but losses incurred in
such a manner as this in vite oniy the
comment that it "serves them right."
Millions of consumers unite in testify
ing the complete satisfaction given by
Dr. Price* Cream Baking Powder.
A contemDorary referred to the "an
cient and honorable position of the Re
publican party on the money question."
That is oue of those topics which any
Republican editor without gall and
with a decent memory should avoid.
That party began its career by the issue
of greenbacks, which it immediately
discredited by refusing to receive them
in payment of taxes. Its sound money
became so unsound that in a few years
it was worth but 50 cents on a dollar.
Ten years after the cloao of th» war ii
began to make a provision for the
restoration of its sound money to sol
vency, and declared that in 1879 it would
begin to redeem its depreciated prom
ises to pay. Before the time arrived,
however, it became alarmed at tke
greenback craze which its own policy
had created, and stopped in 1878 the re
demption of its promises.
ilavlng in 1873, when a silver dollar
was worth three cents more than a gold
dollar, abolished the coinage of the
former, it begau in IS7B to buy silvar
bullion, and coined it into, dollars which
it stored away in its treasury vaults,
issuing silver certificates in payment of
the bullion, which became a virtual if
uot a legal load upon the gold reserve
kept to float the greeabacks. Its con
gress passed this act over the vetoj>f its.
president, who urged reasons against it
which the party in '93 admitted to have
beeu valid. In 1890 it pursued its "an
cient and honorable"' policy, and loaded
the gold reserve with an additional
$150,000,000 of notes Issued under the
bhorman act to buy silver with.
Then In 1890 it passed a bill whose
title declared its purpose to bo "to re
duce the revenue," and which was so
successful In its operations that the
revenues fell below the appropriations
it made for the purpose of exhausting
them../ When the succeeding adminis
tration was compelled, in order to keep
up the gold reserve, depleted ladimUy
by the payment of appropria'lons, to
sell Lotuls In ordt-r to ptM gold. t!ie con
ditions brought qliout by this ancient
him! honorahle policy <>r that party en- j
abled capitalist* to withdraw gold from {
the treasury with wiucii to buy the j
bonds sold to get the gold.
The Pioneer Preaa, wliich is loud and
insistent In vaunting this ancient and
honorable policy, in another column,
adi<tining that in which it lauds it. con
demns it by ndntittinc that "as long as
the treasury is ot>li:red to pay out (old
on demau I for notes the treasury re
serve is entirely at the mercy of those
who may wish to get it." But the treas
ury is obliged to p?\y out gold on de
mand, is entirely at the mercy of those
who wish to get it, because of this
ancient and honorable policy of the Re
publican parly.
When the first call was made for *50,
--000.000 ot bonds tne patriotic takers of
these bonds got $12,000,000 of the gold
directly troin the treasury with which
to pay for the bonds. This they did by
presei^ug greenbacks and the Sherman
notes Tor redeniution. The same class
of patriots are playing the same game
again, and on Fiidny withdrew over a
million dollars in gold from the sub
treasury in New York,' with which to
buy the new bonds as soon as they ate
on the market.
Nothing could better illustrate the
absurdity of this system or liuauce
which the Republicans have given us
than these sales of bonds in order to vet
gold to replenish the reserve fund. The
holder of greenbacks presents them at
the treasury for redemption in gold, and
with this KeM buys the bonds issued to
get gold to maintain the reserve. The
New York Herald happily illustrates
this by the story of Col. Davy Crockett,
who, when coonskin* were legal tender
in Kentucky, paid for the drinKs for the
crowd with a coonskin, which the bar
tender threw under his counter, and
which Crockett fished out again and
presented again and again In payment
of treats for the crowd, until the barrel
of whisky was gone and the bartender
had only his one coonskin to show for it.
Meantime the tables published by the
treasury department, showing the per
centages of the different forma of cur
rency received in payment of customs
at the New York custom house, contin
ue to show the same story of payment
of duties in money of the least value.
The latest ten-day period is that of Oct.
31, during winch neither gold nor gold
certificates were received; one-tenth of
1 percent was in silver coin; 27 per
cent was in silver certificates 53.U per
cent in greenbacks, and 14 per cent in
the Sherman notes of'9o. There have
been no appreciable receipts of gold in
the customs since July at which time
the silver certificates redeemable in sil
ver dollars were M per cent ot the en
tire receipts. It is to this pitiful con
dition that Republican financial policy
has brought us, and m the fane of this
condition Republican editors still have
the unspeakable gall to proclaim their
party as tin* party of sound currency
and safe iinaifciering. It is difficult to
ascertain whether this is pure audacity
or sheer mendacity.
New England Democrats see the ne
cessity of the party taking up its line of
forward march and planting its stand
ard far in advance of its past position.
The New England Tariff Keionii
league, which has been advocating a
reform of the tariff, which the senate
act may well claim to be, has called a
meeting of its members for the purpose
or considering a proposition to change
its name to the New England tree
Trade league, and to declare the object
of the league to be "to free our trade,
our industries, our people from all tariff
taxes except those imposed for revenue
only, and enlist the conscience, intelli
gence and patriotism of New England
against the system called protection,
which, at the dictation of organized
wealth, taxes the whole American peo
ple for the bwm'tit of the few." There is
weakness and uncertainty, however, in
the use of the words, "a taritf for reve
nue only." They are incapable of exact
definition. Mr. (Jorinan contended tliat
his bill was one for revenue only. Mr.
Wilson's bill was for revenue only. A
tariff that would yield revenue "only"
would be one that was laid on ob
jects not made in this country, and on
imports of sued domestic articles as pay
au excise. That is free trade with a
tariff for revenue only. Any middle
ground is but shitting sand.

St. Paul, the stranaer continued mak

them up street from the depot. As they

a chatty way of the points and

After dinner the brothers Karkove
and their new friend went out to see
the sights. The stranger pointed out to
them the principal ofiice buildings, the
city hall and court house, some of the
handsome private residences, and the
bis: bridges spanning the Father of

with the stranger's hospitality, gladly
fell in with the idea, and accompanied
him to the capitol. Everythhit; was co

up Wabasha street towanl the capitol,
and were crossing Sixth street, when

Fourth '!au, and Kxflalmed:
"Hello. Phil; what's your hurry?"
"Pnil" looked up surprised, and said:
"Why, hello. George, when did you
come to town?"
"Came down this morifTrtg."
Phil was about to continue, when
George detained him, and airain asked
him what he was in such a hurry about.
Phil glanced at tho Karkove brothers,
as though reluctant to answer the ques
tion before strangers. George saw the
look, and promptly introduced his old
friend to nis new friends. Urged by
George, Phil turned around and accom
panied the party up to the capitol.
On the way up the mine was laid. In

Phil was a fur dealer, and he was in a
predicament. He had recently pur
chased a cargo or furs, and a carload
had arrived that very morning. Phil
wanted possession ot the furs at once,
but a freight bill of $300 stood in
Ms way, as he had no cash with
him. lie had a check, though, for
$500. It was drawn on a bank at
Port Townsend, Wash., signed
G. E. Montgomery and made payable to
P. E. Ross—that was Pail himself—or
bearer. Would his friend George be so
kind as to cash it for him? George was
awful sorry ho didn't happen to have
the money about him. But that was no
matter. Vincent Karkove Had some
loose cash in his pockets, so that
gentleman informed P. E. llos.
with a deprecatory wave of the hand,
Phil seemed to scout the idea of putting
Mr. Karkove to any inconvenience. Mr.
Karkove told Phil he was quits wel
come to $280—all the cash ho had with
him—if the money would do him any
good. Mr. Karkove was assured that
lie was too kind. "Not at all."-re
joined Mr. Karkove. "Eternally obliged
to you, I'm sure," responded Phil
as he tucked Mr. Karkove's bill* in his
pocket and handed him the check. And
that was a true remark, for Phil will be
"eternally obliged" lor that *280.
Phil absented himself from the party
soon afterwards, and an hour later
George took his departure.
Later in the day Mr. Karkove discov
ered that the $.>OO check was worthless.

applied for a warrant, but as he could

It Is related that Senator Nic Pott
gieser has been persuaded by a number
of designing politicians to introduce a
bill iii the eomiiu legislative for the es
tablishment of a police commission. If
the story is true, Senator Pottgieser will,
in All probability, lind an elephant on
his haeds. The police commission idea
has been surunsr in this city before, and
it has never met with popular favor by
any manner of means. In a city of this
size, so says popular opiuion, a police
commission would be merely a party
machine, and fail to accomplish the ob
ject for which such commissions are in
tended, la a city the size of New York
they are necessary, for the police force
is of such large dimensions that the
mayor cannot possibly exercise proper
supervision over it. But in a city of
140,0D0 inhabitants which has a police
force consisting «if less than 150 men,
the mayor should have entire charge,
with power to appoint and discharge.
A police commission in St. Paul would
be a useless piece of extravagance, and
serve only as a tool for politicians.
Mayor Smith, when questioned on the
subject yesterday, said he did not be
lieve Senator Pottgieser conceived the
idea, and would probably not give as
much attention to it as he will to his
favorits proposed measure of reducing
the liquor license. The failure of the
effort to establish a police commission
in Minneapolis is cited as an instance in
favor of allowing tilings to run on in
their present condition.

Special to tho Globe.
Washington, Nov. 23.—1n view of
the tact that i ray nor, the head of

that the recent Republican sweep of
the lower house of congress was a
victory for that order, the claims
made by the A. I*. A. managers as to
the number of their men who will nave

comes interesting. There are in all 350
members of the house, and of these the

members of the society. The entire
Michigan delegation is claimed, us are
live of the ten from Wisconsin and two
from Minnesota. Whether these are
the men who are to light Torn Reed in

Washington, Nov. 23. — Secretary
Moke .Smith has made up his mind that
the Ked Lake Indian 'reservation shall
be opened before the close of this ad
ministration, and that it shall be accom
plished without any movements that
can recall the scandnis that have clung
to every feature of the matter durini:
the administration of President Hani
son. He realizes the importance of the
early opening of that great reservation
to Duluth and all Northern Minnesota,
and there will be no delays in the inter
ests of the various pine land syndicates
if he can prevent it, and he is quite con
fident that he can do so.
Maj. Baldwin's plan to throw open
100,000 acres at a time meets with the
approval of Secretary Smith for more
reasons than one, bul the principal rea
son is because of the tact that under
this plan more money will be realized
for the Indians. The present head of
the interior department believes that it
is his duty to get the largest possible
-sum for the Chippewas rather than
allow the pine lanu men to get the best
bargains for themselves.

Test Cases Brought to Recover
Bounty Alleged to Be Due.
WASHINGTON, Nov. 23.—The contro
versy between sugar growers of the
country and the United States govern
ment, growing out of the repeal of the
act granting a bounty of one-half cent
a pound upon nil sugars crown in the
United States and territories by the
new tariff bill, and the subsequent re
fusal of the treasury department to pay
bounty upon the -.ugar grown IB the
present year, reached the first stage in
progress to definite legal settlement
J. Archibald Murray, an attorney of
New York, filed today in the court of
claims three suits. identical in charac
ter, and all seeking to recover from the
government sums of money alleged to
be legally due the complainants as
bounty upon sugar raised by them in
the year 1891.
The China Valley Beet Sugar com
pany, of California, sues for #43. 131;
ihe Norfolk Beet Sugar company, of
New Jersey, for $3,093, and the Oxnard
Beet Sugar company for $11,782.
The complaints are based upon the
allegation that the United States, by
the act of congress granting a bounty of
oi.e-half cent per pound upon all suuar
grown in the United Stares and terri
tories, entered into legal contract with
the complainants, as well as all oilier
sugar growers, and led them by its
terms to undertake the culture of beets
and other plants from which sugar is
obtained, but which could not" have,
been profitably pursued without the
benefit* of such a contract. The claim
is further made that tho crops of the
complainants were growing "and the
sugar resulting from them was hi proc
ess of manufacture long before the
passage by congress of the measure re
pealing the provisions of the act grant
ing the bounty, and that the govern*"
ment has no tight to withhold the pay- i
ment of the bounties alleged to be due. j

will hay: There is some change for the
better. The pain is slow and in some
directions not very distinct, but the
signs of it aie a little more definite than
last week. The most important of
them is larger employment of labor,
answering a better "demand on the
whole for Manufactured products.
Much of tins \i due to the unnatural
delay of orders lor the. winter, which
resulted from prolonged uncertainly,
j but it means actual increase in earn
j ings and purchasing power of the mill
i ions, ami so gives promise of a larger
demand iii the luture. Prices of farm
products in the aggregate do not 1111-

The wheat market has lost this week
the cent it trained last week, when re
ceipts were larger and Atlantic exports
also larger, 57t),77l bushels against
703.024 last year, but these are of small
account compared with the great visible
suupiy. Foreign reports this week have
been rather more promising, though the
fact remains that the world's crop out
side of the United States is probably
the largest ever grown. Lorn has de
clined half a cent, receipts having much
increased. 'I lie foreign demand tor cot
ton continues large, exports betas 59, ~
OCO bales larger than lor the same week
last year, but receipts also continue)
greater than a year ago, and for three
months will closely approximate those
of the same three months when the yield
was over y.000,000 bales. But the price
rose an eighth. Textile industries have
j added a few factories to the working
i list, against onl\ one or two withdrawn,
and there has been some improvement
in the demand 'or woolens. More sup
plementary orders lor sprint? have been
received, and colder weather has in
creased the demand for heavy goods.
Yet. on the whole, the market is not
j active, and the manufacture is much
i below the capacity of works.
Sales of wool for the week increase
! acraiti, though still far behind iasi year,
j and for lour wei-ks of November have
been 12.259.500 pounds, against 17.590..
last year. Since Aumi>t the sales havo
been 12 per cut more than last year.but
3') percent less tl an in 1893.
The iron industry again records lower
prices for Bessemer iron — £10.40 at
| Pitlsbtirg—and for some manufactured
I products. The consumption is lar^e,
I and, tor the season, fairly well wain
! tallied, but as it is not eauai to the ca

j struggle to get this keeps price-, at the
bottom. It is reported that an Ameri
can shipyard has secured orders to
builu three armored cruisers for Russia,
which will give added work tor some
years, and that a contract for 10.000
tons cast pipe for Fokio will probably
be secured by a Southern concern. Tin,
