Because wo have not as ninny eakea and us much ale as v ual, shall we not at any rate enjoy the cakes and ale which we have? Thomas Hardy, whose vision is lim ited to life's little ironies, defines a clem in one of his bonks as a man who makes his living by seeing the bright side of tilings which haven't any bright side. The fallacy in the defini tion is that there are no things which haven't a bright side. Wealth is com fortable, but there are worse thine* than poverty. It is a glorious thing to be born, but the ancients counted death as the gods' greatest £ift to humanity. Tho whole year just ending has been a hard one, not alone to us in America, but over the length and breadth of the civilized world. The fruits of the earth and of men's toil have commanded no market, ■ Cotton lias sold at live cents a pound and wheat at 50 cents a bushel. The army of the unemployed and the discontented has been as vast as the horde which swept down on Rone under Attila's banner. Cutluus vagaries in thought and belief have had a terrifying currency^ and idleness has bred strange crimes and assaults on the peace of or ganized society. If we sit down to our Thanksgiving dinner with these living pictures from the contemporary chamber of horrors urominent before our eyes, there is the most encoarasinc prospect of a univer sal tit of indigestion, which bodes well for the doctors' pockets, whatever it may mean for the butcher, lint, as we are brave men, with the power ot risinij above the weight of chance circum stances, we will throw them off with reflections of a happier hue. It is not the swiftest runner who wins the race nor the stoutest warrior who wears victory's plume at the battle's end. The first Timothy Dwiicht, presi dent of Yale colleee, In hid nineteenth year, wrote from the West Indies, where he had none to slay the ravages of con sumption, that he never expected to see another birthday. But when he was past ninety he was still preaching ser mons hours long to reluctant and pro testing undergraduates. Last week there went to his grave in St. Paul, full of years and great achievements, a law yer, honored, respected and loved be yond the point any man who has ever lived in this community had ever reached, but when he was more than thirty he had not yet gained a foothold in his profession, but supplemented the scant returns it brought him by selling books and teaching the young. All history is full ot examples of men who, from small beginning*, unexpectedly, without hope and without reason to hope, have attained the highest records of long life, reputation, wealth, power and influence. All history conspires to prove that the rich of yesterday are the paupers of tomorrow, and that the in significant put on a king's stature with the swiftness of the gourd which spread its branches in a single night. These thoughts teach us that no one has the right to be disheartened lieeause the past was dark and the pivseut is Bloomy, lie should rather renew his courage and be alert for every oppor tunity which may disclose itself. No more has any one the right to despair of the republic because there is s< "ial confusion and he hears muttering* against the established order of things. rhe greatest progress in political free dom has always bten made at s;:ch times. When contentment is general patriotism sinks into apathy and liberty is endangered. The bitter cry of the wronged, smarting under personal ills, and demanding the destruction of the state that he may have vengeance and relief, is the bugle's note which wakes the lovers of their country to a sense of duty and to action. Out of strikes anil industrial wars come the amelioration of the condition of the aggrieved on the one sida and the renewed devotion to law and social order on the other. Our institutions were born in the inter colonial wraugles and jealousies of a century ago. They were cemented on an imperishable foundation in the blood and the tears of the civil war. This 13 no hour for depression of spir its. Tnanksgiving is the time for tur key aud good cheer. CHARACTER. OF THE DAY. The president of the United States and the governors ot Hie states have all issued their several proclamation* ap pointing today as one of thanksgiving, and enjoinine the people to repair to their several places ol worship and there, with rtevout hearts, render their thanks for the manifold blessings of which they have been the recipients during; the year now drawing to a close. And today nil the ehiirehes In the land will be open.and the multitude may go In and obey the injunctions of the president and the governors, and the ministers will recount the causes for thankfulness, and the choirs will sing appropriate hymns, and the benedic tion will be pronounced, and the wor shipers will hie themselves to their homes, whore they will testify to their gratitude, as the great, worldly, non» worshiping mass will theirs, by eating of the feast especially prepared for this day. Theoretically the day 19 given over to the spiritual and devotional; practically it it given over to the ma terial., the purely human, to feasting,, not fasting. * This has been tlie real, the actual character of the day and its observation since that first Thanksgiving day on the bleak shores of the Massachusetts colony appointed for Feb. 2,1, 1031, when the food supplies of the colonists were nearly exhausted and starvation stared them in the face and all eyes daily turned seaward to catch sight of the sails of the ship returning from the mother country with supplies of food, while day by day the store diminished and gaunt hunger sat unappeascd at the tables. And the chronicler of the day tells of the burst of thanksgiving which went up when at last the vessel laden with lood came to anchor in the bay. Thus, from the first nn ample meal and thanks went together, and to gether they have ever since gone. And when the nation v%ns formed after the travail of the revolution and amid the compromises of jealous infant states, and President Washington, on Hamil ton's suggest ion, issued the first Thanks giving proclamation and set the date all subsequent presidunts and gov ornor3 have followed, of observing the last Thursday of November, Secretary Hamilton kept the day with a dinner at Faunce'sold inn, at which too much wine was diunk and a lieutenant's nose was broken by r bottle thrown by another giver of thanks and crockery was smashed, and Washington actually THE SAISTT PAUL I>AILT GLOBE: THURSDAY MORXIYG, NOVEMBER ?9, 18^1 swore when he heard of It. And the father of his country dutifully went to church and back to a dinner the lirst of the fust ladies of the land had prepared, to whose discussion and enjoyment sal down all the notables of the covens ■sent. After all, the stomach is the dominant organ. It is imperious and dogmatic. One may abjure intellectual food and starve his social nature and dispense with religions beliefs or instruction, but the stomach must have its daily bread. The conteniners of the lowly organ who trave their lives to biirh thinking and low living succumbed to dyspepsia. The Lord's prayer acknowledges tho close touch of hunger and impiety, and asks that we may be (riven our daily bread. (Jen. Booth recognizes this in timate relation in the work of his Sal vation Army, which first feeds and makes comfortable the sinner it would reclaim. Isinuael, whose hand was against every other man, must have been a starveling. Cassius. the con spirator, had "a lean and hungry look." And so it is well and proper that the feast should be an accompaniment or the day of especial acknowledgment of thankfulness. It disposes the mind as liolhinic else can to an appreciation of the good things that come deserved or undeserved to us all. it MftDM down the asperities of life and dulls the mem ory to recollections of those incidents which have rufllod Oft tempers and dis turoed the serenity of our self-com placency. Under its soothing influences we forget those disappointmonts which have made us doubt the reign of impar tial justice or tiie reward of virtuous conduct. It broadens our philanthropy, quickens our charity, mellows our judg ment, modulates our tempers. Let us give thanks and eat, both heartily. IN THE THEATERS. Last Bight the J'avary Opera company appeared in Italian operas again, and undoubtedly presented the best per formance they have given yet. The music was more nearly suited to both chorus and orchestra and the leading roles were admirably sun*. The entire performance was smooth, artistic and finished. A double bili was triveil Leoncavallos', "1 Pagliacci." a tragic little opera full of dash and life, aud the brilliant and beautiful "Cavalleria Kusticana" of Mascagni. The two operas mnKe a delightful evening and are ever inter estnsg iv every detail. A special holiday matinee of "Bo hemian (iirl" will be given by the Tavary Opeiva company at the Metro politan this afternoon, and the cast will not only include two prima donnas, but the entire strength of thiH excellent or ganization. Tonight Gounod's immortal opera "Faust" wilt prove a treat to our music lovers. Miss Tavary has enjoyed an intimate acquaintance with this great composer, aud her impersonation of Marguerite is said to be idealic.M.Guille will appear as Faust: Mine. Doree, the charming mezzo-soprano, will appear as Siebel; Mortens as Valentine; Schus ter as Wagner; also Umiani. Kcadv, aud Mr. Hamilton ?.s Mephisto. The chorus and orchestra add no little to the perfect representation or opera by the Tavary company, and it will doubtless be some time before so thoroughly equipped an organization will again be heard in St. Paul. Stuart Hobson will be with us at the Metropolitan opera house next week. Mr. Kobson has provided for his ad mirers this season a dramatic treat of unusual excellence. He has not re nounced his popular repertoire of past seasons, which em braces the very best works of Goldsmith, Shakespeare, Buckstone, and others, whose names are immortal ized in English literature, he has added to that lonir list a new one in the shape of Adrian Barbusse's new and original comedy, written for him, "The Inter loper, or the Feet of Venus." This com edy is said to possess all the omit of freshness and novelty, besides the ad vantage of being the work of one of the most prolific, and probably one of the most hilariously entertaining writers of comic ulays that ever enriched the stage literature ot France. Mr. Kobson's re pertoire for the week will be as fol lows: Monday, Tuesday and Wednes day evenings and at the Wednesday matinee. "The Interloper;" Thursday evening. "Leap Year:' 1 Friday evening; and Saturday matinee, "She Stoops to Conquer.* 1 and Saturday evening, "The Henrietta.*' Mr. Litt's wonderfully popular play, "In Old Kentucky," is attracting crowds which test the capacity of the Grand at each performance, and from indications there will be many a person turned away from the matinee this afternoon. The advauee sale is tbe heaviest iv the history of the iheater. Those quaint comedians. Conroy and Fox, who have been the feature of the "Howard Athemeum Star Specialty company" for the past four years, will be the attraction at tbe Grand opera house, beginning Sunday night. LET US BK THANKFUL.. LWritten for the Globe.l We're a ganulous, grumbling, groveling set, I refer to the whole human race; We fuss and we fume and -we tlout and we fret, Tho' heaven smiles sweet in our face. We turn up our nose at our weal aud our woes. We seem to forget where we're at; While the fact we're permitted to prattle and pose— We ought to be thankful for that. This tractable, tremulous, tragical thought Has lodged in my labyrinth gray. Some storage suggested (or cunningly caught) Asa topic for Thanksgiving day. My motive is merely a, maxim to mold, In a casual comedy chat: The theme is a tissue of tickle untold— And the world will be thankful for that. The pullet that prances with positive scorn, 'Midst the muster of mutable fowl, Will be flabby and flaccid on Thanksgiving morn. And as orphaned as oyster or owl. That is tough, true enough, but there's this to be put As a solace, sarcastic somewhat; The carver may croak ere Hie cervicle's cut— And the birdshouldbe thankful for that. Mr. Owen, the Populist pillar of pride, Started out in the storm of November: The wild, wailing wind of the Oth he defied, Warniuj? all Heps the ides to remember. But big Doom was a Borcan blast That smote Owen's smock with aswat; "Sid 1" lost coat and vest, but his trousers held fast— And be ought to be thankful for that.

Ue ex claimed, looking at Pierce Butler, who was smiling fiendishly, and, when Pierce shook his head slowly, the mar shal went on, while a sardonic griu flitted over his face: "1 can prove it. A day or two airo 1 met a eomuiis*iou mun, a friend of mine, who explained to me that already there was a feeling of renewed confidence. " 'Why,' said he, "people come in now and ask me to trust them for a bale of hay, they feel so confident. They never could have thomrlit of doing it before.' "Of course," Uede contiiuu-d, "they don't gut the bale of hay, but neverthe less they feel a renewed confidence in asking ior it." And now Assemblyman J. J.

His friends claim that he is a clean cut. capable young business man of progressive ideas and just the kind to inspire con fidence ami make a record worthy of himself and the city. His friends "point with pride" to Mr. Parker's re lief resolution for tha benoiit of the un employed last summer, and recount other meritorious deeds which they claim will prove elements of strength in such a campaign. * • The fake bill which it is claimed Henry Johns will introduce divorcing the laud clerk from the state auditor's office, is a direct slap at George A. Flinn aud an exhibition of Henry's per sonal spleen, wtiich he has been display ing on all aecaskms since liis terrible surprist) of Nov. ti. No one will take any stock in a bill introduced solely for the purpose of revenue on one who gave Johus what little prominence he enjoys.

They always etioke little Willie off without a single bite of tur key or a dab of cranberry sauce. MUSICAL AND SOCIAL. The next, regular meeting of the Schubert club will be an evening musi cale, to be held at Ford Music hall Sat urday evening. Dec. 1, at 8 o'clock. The programme ou this occasion will be a choice one, as it is to be in the nature of a piauo recital by a St. Paul artist, Mrs. Herman Scheffer, who, possessed of great natural talent, has added to this gift the advantages of faithful, con scientious study under the best masters at home and abroad. While in Germany she was a uupil of both Lizst aud the elder Kullak. Mrs. Schefi>r is to ba assisted in her recital by Miss Katherine Gordon, whose beautiful voice and tine method should be carefully observed by every stuawnt of vocal ' music, and by Claude Madden, the accomplished yio linist. To this recital each member of tiie club will have the privilege of bringing: two invited guests, but it will be neces sary that each member show her mem bership ticket for this season (!B'J4-'95) to the doorkeeper. There will be no paid admissions. There will be do musicale on Wednesday, Dec. 0. Mrs. Horace E. Thompson, of Wood ward avenue, entertained informally yesterday afternoon from 4to 6.

Towle were very quietly married at the cathedral. The ceremony was perform ed by Rev. Father Busch, and only the immediate friends or the families were invited. Miss Lamprey is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Uri P. Lamprey, and is very popular, botn in musical and social circles in this city. Mr. Towle is a ris ing young business mau. The mar riage was celebrated in a very quiet manner, Miss Lamprey wearing a trav eling dress of brown and blue, with brown hat. Miss Lilliam Lamprey, sister of the bride, acted as bridesmaid, and Will Towle, brother of thegroo in, as groomsman.

N Ol T. Question of Street liijthtinir With Gasoline I>oik-iklk on the Best i.ijgttt. Tha council committees on tras from the assembly auu the board of alder ni'.'ii met last night to consider the bids for gasoline lighting. All the members of the com uuiiies were present save Mr. Van >lyke. The live u.duers— Robert keener, Mr. Wajcner.of Wanner A: Joy,.Mr. Scannell, Isaac A. (irant and Mr. lleiibron, rep reseutini; the Acme Vapor Stove coin pany—wero also present. Prior to the session of the coiuinittee the bidders exhibited their buiners, which wetts litfhied down stairs iv the health oftice. for the benefit wf the coinmitU-e. '1 lih Acme \ 7apor Stove, company's burner j<«ve the best, litrht. 1 lie other burners were apparently equal in illuminating capacity. \\ len the committee assembled, (.'hair man Kobb stifilfested that iha burners be tested by i'rof.

Mr. StrtMitt) made a motion to that ettect, but added that he would vote for tite Lowest lle*|>oit*ib!<> i:itl«l>r. provided be furnished a sixteen-candle power 1 iji hi, as called for in the specifi cations. Mr. J.ewis remarked that tlie council would reject all bids and raad verlise in case none oi the burners should have a capacity of sixteen caudle power, which he thought was probably the case. He would say, however, that the lights exhibited by the bidders upon this occasion were better than St. Paul had ever had within the memory of man. Asked if they objected to the test proposed, the bidders said that they were willing to submit to it if properly conducted. As the test must be made at tiie University, at Minneapolis, it was decided that the committee should take charge of the buiners exhibited last evening, and send tliem to Prof. Shepherdson to be tested. A subcom mittee, consisting of Assemblyman Arosin, Aid. Murphy and Chairtuau Kobb, was appointed to take the burn ers to the university and witness the test. It was understood that the bid ders should also be present. The committee was about to adjourn when Mr. Seeger raised the point of irregularity in the bids ot Mr. Scanneil and Wagner and Joy because they were iiot accompauied by certified checks as required by the specifications. In Mr. Scannell's case the committee agreed with Mr. Seecer, as it appeared" that Mr. Scanneil Did Not Deposit His i heck with the city clerk at ',) o'clock in the morning after the assembly meeting, as he had agreed to do. In fact he has not even yet deposited a check. Mr. Wagner sent his check in only two or three hours after his bid, and the assembly agreed to acceDt his bid and consider it on the same basis as the other bids. A lively dispute be iween the bidders ensued, but it was finally ended by the committee voting to throw out both Scanuell and Wag ner's bids. This action, however, will not materially affect the two bidders, as nobody but tlie assembly and the board of aldermen concurring has the power to reject any bids. Messrs. Roob, Strouse and Murphy voted noon the mo tion for this reason. The committee then adjourned subject to the call of the chairman. During the dispute between the bid ders, Mr. Wagner remarked that all the bidders hated each other, and added that he was not on the same level as Mr. Scannell in the matter of irregularity in submitting his certified check. In reply Mr. Scaniittll said that he did not hate any bidder, "'but," he con cluded. "I hate a liar!" Chairman Uobb called Mr. Seamiel! down sharply. HUKT AT A THEATER. John Leonard May Die From a Fat! — Grave Case. John Leonard, atred nineteen, lies at his lather's home on Pennsylvania avenue, near Rice street, suffering from injuries which he received at the Grand opera house last Sunday evening. Young Leonard was perched upon a lofty railing in the rear of the top gallery beholding tne last act of "In Old Kentucky." During the earlier part of the|performance Leonard had had some words with Special Ofhcer Galvin, formerly a member of the police force. The altercation was renewed at this time, and it ended in the ejection of Leonard from the playhouse. Whether Galvin struck Leonard a heavy blow or simply slapped him, as some witnesses say. is not known, but it is probable that the ugly scalp wound which he sustained was caused by his falling down stairs. He was conveyed immediately from the theater to the central station, where Assistant City Physician Brimhall dressed his wound and prounced it nothing more serious than a contusion of the scalp. Leonard was able to walk, and soon after he went home. H«t has been in bed ever since, however. Yesterday Michael Leonard, his father, called at police headquarmrs, but not finding any officers there who were on duty nights, he did not state his errand, but it has been learned that he proposes to make a thorough investigation. Young Leonard's condition may be more serious than was at first thought, as there is a possibility of fracture of the skull. WE NOW HAVE PART ONE, QUEER PEOPLE CAPITOL NOTES.

The citizens' executive committee for the relief of tho unemployed met at Market hail yesterday afternoon to con fer with representatives of the unem ployed. There were at least 800 people, there, all clamoring for work. Chair man Wilson explained the situation to them, lie informed them that at pres ent the committee had no funds to work with, but that it whs expected that money would be received soon on ac count of the subscriptions already ob tained. The chairman assured the en that the committee would spare no effort to raise funds, and would con tinue its appeal* to every one to trlve all th» aid in their power. That wast all thu committee could do. After the ineHiiiK had adjourned th« relief coiumicice 'Proceeded to Hie .Mayor's Office, and at once telephoned to members of the park board, the city comptroller and city attorney to hold a conference then and there. Three members of the park .consisting of Messrs. Wheelnck, AberbU; and lekler. responded in per son, as did thu city attorney and Mr. McCardy. The park board informed the. relief committee that it had been advised by the city 'attorney that it had no funds in its possession at present that could bo expended in giving relief to the unemployed, or for any purpose beyond the specific one for which it was appropriated. Moreover, even if it had the money, no work could be done in the parks, now. that winter is about to set in. It was finally decided that the relief Committee would hold a meeting next Saturday even in?, and that in the mean time the park i>oard should meet Fri day alternoon at 4 o'clock and ascertain definitely whether or not some work can be done^i. the parks this winter. Chairman Wilson said that the money expected from subscriptions had not bee:: received, and that he hoped the subscribers would send it in as soon as possible. All classes were in want and everybody ought to give something. HELD BY A FAiLURK. Stockholder Cannot Cancel His Mock After the Hank Pails. Ten decisions were handed down yesterday by the supreme court, rive each written by Justice Canty aud Justice Buck. One by justice Canty will be of great interest to our Minneapolis readers. This is the familiaj case of Charles 11. Dunn, respondent, vs. The Slate Bank of Minneapolis, and Wiliiam J. Ilahn. as assignee of the State Bank, appellant. The court holds thai the complaint,does not state a cause of ac tion, and that the plaintiff is not entitled to maintain an action to have his stock canceled, and be thus re lieved of his responsibility to the creditors owing to the failure of the bank. The action of the president of the bank, of whom the plaintiff pur chased the stock, does Dot relieve the latter. The president, Kristian Kort iraard, paid for the stock with city funds drawn out of other banks in his name, and he made false representations in selling the stock to plaiutiil; but the plaintiff was an inno cent purchaser. The bank assigned eleven months after the president subscribed for the stock and live mouths after he sold it to the plaintiff. The alleged insolvency of the bank when the stock was issued to the presi dent was i.ot discovered by the plaintiff until ten days before he began the ac tion, and no effort of his to investigate the affairs of the bank aupears. As against the creditors the plaintiff is guilty of laches. Order reversed. PERSONAL MENTION. Ex-Gov. Mrrriatn is in the East on a business junket. A Windsor guest yesterday was S. A.

PLAN *CF REORGANIZATION By Which It is Proposed to Form One Great West ern Association, SPLIT IN FiVE DISTRICTS, With St. Paul as the Head quarters of the North western Lines. CHICAGO, Nov. 2&—Chairman Cald well, of the Western Passenger associa tion, tendered his resignation today. It was accepted, and the Western Passen ger association lias passed out ot exist ence. When the meeting convened this morning Chairman Culdweli presented his resignation, saying that the recent events had placed him in a peculiar po sition, ana that if the lines wished to form another association they should be free to choose such a chairman as they desired. The resignation was formally accepted, and a resolution declaring the Western Passenger association out of existence was introduced and adopted with the understanding that tiie emi grant clearing house shall remain in tact. Chairman Caldwell will be. re tained, with his principal assistants, for the purpose of managing the clearing house until the association's affairs are in a more detnite shape than at present. For the purpose of pro viding for the expenses of the clearing house all the roads pres ent at the meeting pledged them selves to contribute pro rata. The roads so voting included several which haven't of late been members of West ern Passenger association, and their total number was greater than the total ever in the association at any one lime. The Altou road, through its general passenger agent, Mr.Chariton, declared that while it was not a member ot the association, nor of the clearing house, it would bear its proportion of the ex pense. Several of the association lines were not represented at th» meeting, and their votes cannot be recorded for some days, but the roads present de clared that they would bear the amount necessary to run the office of Chairman Caldwell. and to meet the salaries of the chairman and of his principal as sistants, no matter which way the ab sent lines should view the proposition. Report of me committee on reorganiza tion was read. It recommended that ail Use territory of the Western Passenger association and the property under the old transcontinental association should be included in one general asso ciation, the territory to begin at Gal veslon. continuing to New Orleans, and thence north along the Mississippi river to St. Louis; thence along the tracks of the Illinois Central and this Vandalia to Chicago; thence through the western peninsula ot Michigan to St. Ignace and Sault Ste. Mare, and from there west to the Pacific ocean. it was recommend ed that this territory be placed under the jurisdiction of rive territorial com mittees, to have their headquarters as follows: The Pacific at San Francisco, the Central at Denver, the Southern at St. Louis, the Eastern at Chicago and the Northern at St. Paul. Each of these committees is to have juris diction of all matters in its own territory, and all matters of general interest to be referred to the general association, which will have its headquarters in this city. No definite action was taken on the report, it oeiuz discussed only formally. The general feeling, however, was strongly in favor of adopting the plan proposed by the committee. After the discussion the general meeting adjourned to Saturday morning in order to allow the trans continental lines to meet on Friday and see if they cannot arrange to no away with the demoralization in Pacific coast rates and thus pave the way for an agreement of all the lines on the day following, or on Monday. One step iv the way of harmony was made when a resolution was passed doing away with the pay men; of all excessive commissions. Contingent upon this is the question of the reduced rates between Kansas City and Chicago and Kansas City and St. Louis. All of the lines represented at me meeting voted in tavur of doing away with Hie large commission^, but there are several of tue lines whose votes are still to be recorded upon the matter. The earnings of the Atchison for the third week hi November were s>b!V2,iMo, a decrease otssl,i74 coinpaud wttU the same week ut last year. The earnings tor the mouth io date were ?2,6yU.740, a decrease from the same period ot last year of *230,52-2. WE NOW HAVE PART ONE, QUEER PEOPLE. ANGLIC BARS.
