"> -It was a close shave. ; A brute was captured while escaping, after one of those attempts that al- ways raise men's passions to the high- est pitch of fury. The noose was about his neck. Already, he hung in the air, when a plea for calmer coun sels prevailed and he was turned over to be dealt with by the law. A few minutes more, or th-? failure of a protest by those who could not bear ; to witness the summary process of enraged humanity, and we should have had to carry the reproach and the last- ing regret that must follow lawless- ness. This ought at least to make us more charitable in the judgment of our neighbors. There was nothing of the savage brutality that accompanies ■Similar acts elsewhere." A quick death and one as painless as might be was contemplated for the vile wretch who could claim no pity. But it would have been, none the less, an overthrow of order and a defiance of law such as this community has seldom witnessed and hopes never to chronicle again. While every man will rejoice that the criminal did not escape, and will in- sist that he suffer the extremest pen- alty of the law, unhappily too lenient to do full justice to such cases, even .greater thanks are due to those who prevented the execution of mob just- ice than to those who intercepted the offender in his flight. St. Paul is law-abiding. Let us never lose that . good repute, even under the strongest provocation. HABIT AND OPINION. In considering the general attitude of East and West upon the silver ques tion, too little weight has been given, we are convinced, to the power of habit. The two sections are as dif ferent, in their use of small change, as if they were two distinct coun- tries. Here in the West, the silver dollar is in universal circulation. For all sums of less than five dollars it is the common tender. People have got over their old objection to its weight . and clumsiness. They have become ac- customed to it, and it is nothing un- usual for a man to carry half a dozen or more in his pocket at a time, if he is the fortunate possessor of that much ready cash. Not only have small bills practically disappeared from circula tion in the West, but the people have actually begun to object to them. There is a steady demand on the banks and postoffices for small quan tities of these bills; but, save for a tew fastidious persons who still prefer them, they are mostly for the purpose of transmission by mail. These bills are dirty and inconvenient to handle. If placed in a pocketbook, this has to ' be dragged out and the entire con- tents unfolded every time the owner ■ makes a small purchase. If carried loose in the pocket,, they crumple easily, and one may be dropped in making change without being noticed. . On the whole, as a practical conven ience, the -people of this part of the jountry.have not only become recon ciled to the silver dollar, but' begin to give it the reference. *r 7- *•■■.-'■ When one goes East he finds all , this changed. There is the same re- luctance there to accepting silver money that there was elsewhere when the big coins were first -put out by the mints. There are comparatively few in circulation. In the stores, at« the railroad stations, everywhere that money is received and paid, the bulk of it, for small payments, consists of one and two-dollar bills. If 'an at- . tempt is made to substitute silver dollars for these', the strongest 'Ob- jection is made. And in deference to this popular custom the silver dol lar is kept out of circulation as far as possible. This difference between the two sections is not based upon any attitude of the people toward the coin, but it certainly does react upon it. Each is governed solely by 'habit, and each thinks that it is consulting its own convenience exclusively. But the result is that the silver dollar as the actual money that passes from hand to hand is most familiar to the one,- while to the other it is an' inter- loper, if not a stranger. Consciously or unconsciously, this use of daily life is reflected in the disposition with which they meet the agitation of the silver question. One says that the money with which most of his busi- ness is done is good enough for him. The other feels that he does not want to be compelled to take any more of these, to him, inconvenient pieces. It is absurd enough that the disposi tion -of the people toward a great financial issue should be to any. extent determined by so fanciful and irra tional a consideration as habit and prejudice. Yet few men are naturally eager to make a study of finance for themselves. The majority make up their minds according to the daily habit of living and thinking. And we would not be afraid to wager that a larger proportion of the people have had their views of the silver- question decided by the extent to which silver coins enter into the active currency of the community in which they live than have had their beliefs determined by any of the books or pamphlets put forth on either aide of the controversy. THE AMENITIES OF AVAR. Were one to judge the animus of the soldiers of the army of the rebellion by the bitter,. unforgiving expressions of some of them, the shallows that murmur while the deeps run still, one would think that every man in each army was inspired 7by a personal, fierce and vindictive hatred-, and sought* with eagerness every chance to slay an enemy. That this was not the case every old soldier well knows. That it was not the case was the best evidence that each side was inspired by a sense of right and of justice in its cause. With a few rancorous ex- ceptions, after the first hot feeling en- gendered by the war had effervesced, individual enmities scarcely existed. The instances of brutality were, sur prisingly infrequent, considering the brutal environment of war. There was undoubtedly less of it than is daily shown in civil life. The reason is not hard to find. The brutal man is almost invariably a coward, and such avoided the dangers of the war. Every old soldier can testify to the amenities of communication with the "Johnnies" when opportunity offered. The swapping of coffee for tobacco on the picket lines; the interchange of jokes between the boys in the trenches and those behind the adjoin- ing breastworks; the mutual' admira tion and applause for some striking j act of bravery, incidents which every ! soldier will recall, from his own ex- perience, testified to the high plane on j which the war was waged. There were men, of course, on each side, who, imbued with the fanatical spirit,' felt a personal hatred towards their ad- versaries; and it is occasionally ap- parent now, both North and South, that some of these survived the acci- dents of battle and the dangers of the camp. But they only form the -In- ception that proves the rule. The terms of surrender, that Sherman of- fered Johnston, unhappily revoked by men who cared more for party than for country,. but reflected the general feeling in our armies. StSSSJ-S ■ Gen. Longstreet, in a letter , to the pupils of a Lowell, Mass., school, gives a striking illustration of the spirit of fellowship that,* however, did not interfere with the -performance of "a" serious duty. In these memorial days, when, amid the tributes that are being paid to the dead who wore the blue and the gray, there comes some discordant note of protest, a shriek of an unexhausted hatred, his narrative of an incident attending the siege of Knoxviile is especially appro- priate. "In the winter of 1863," he says: • "The Confederate army under my com- mand laid siege to Knoxviile, Term., .the Union forces in the beleaguered city being under the command of Gen. Bui'iiside, who assaulted my lines -at Fredericksburg in 1862. Around Knox- viile all day long, and day after. day, could be heard the constant and heavy cannonading, mingled with the inces sant musketry fire, showing the blue and gray with artillery and Infantry were battling for their convictions (as they understood them), while on. -the outskirts now and then the fierce ring and clatter of sabers and zip! zip! zip! of the deadly carbines showed that the cavalrymen of both armies were not Idle. .-..-:■. "Yet after nightfall a holy, solemn hush, as of God's benediction, fell up- on the two opposing forces, and soon the stillness of might was gently broken on Armstrong Hill by my headquarters band playing the 'Star Spangled Ban- ner,' which, at its conclusion, was an- swered by Gen. Burnside's headquar ters band playing the 'Bonnie Blue Flag,' to which my band responded. with 'Yankee Doodle;' then from Gen. Burnside's came 'Dixie,' and my mv- sicians replied with 'Hail, Columbia,' and to close the serenade the two bands played first a sacred piece, and both wound up the evening's entertain- ment- by joining and in perfect tune playing 'Home, Sweet Home.' "During these evening concerts it would have been easy for my men to have killed Gen." Burnslde and vice versa; but any soldier who would have been guilty of a,ny Punic faith on these occasions would have been violently dealt with; and when the last beautiful strains of 'Home, Sweet Home' were wafted from the two bands upon the evening air, strong men showed pallid cheeks and tearful eyes, that on the morrow were unblanched and stern .When breasting the storm of shriek- ing shell and splashing shrapnel." THE ROOT OF THE MATTER. A . most important organization is the National Municipal league, which has been in session" during 7 the ; past week at Cleveland. It has come to be admitted by people of all shades of I political opinion . that . municipal • gov-; THE SAINT PAUI/ DAILY GLOBE: MONDAY MORNING, JUNE 13, l»yo. eminent is the weak spot of the Amer ican system. We " do not believe- that any other scheme of government than our own can work out better results eventually in the municipal field. But up to a comparatively recent date the thinkers and reformers of this country had devoted all their attention* to the direction and improvement of national affairs, leaving the cities to take care of themselves. As a result of this, the various municipalities in the United States have been surrendered to the tender mercies of the ward politician; and the cities of other countries, whose political ideas are inferior to our own, have made greater advancement. This fact has at last been forced upon the attention of our. own public men. No book dealing with public questions has raised greater interest or been read more thoughtfully, or stirred the pesp'.e more deeply with a sense of duty un- done than Dr. Shaw's "Municipal Government in Great Britain." In ta clear and dispassionate way he has shown how far the cities of England and Scotland have advanced toward placing the conduct of local govern- ment on a strictly business basis. What they have done appeals strongly to every business man and to every public-spirited citizen. And the key- note of the entire work done abroad is the abolition of party lines, and the repression of partisan feeling in the conduct of municipal affairs. This Idea was advanced long ago by a few reformers in this country, and has made great progress everywhere. The National Municipal league, repre senting a large number of the leading cities of this country, enforces the conclusion and the duty which it car- ries with it in the most emphatic lan- guage. It has expressed the opinion that the conditions of local govern- ment in many of the cities of this country are actually hostile to the ex- istence of our institutions. It has an- nounced that the question of municipal government should have the serious consideration and devoted service of all good citizens irrespective of party. There is no difference of opinion on the point that the dominance of national party organizations when local (issues alone are to be decided is an influence for evil. To secure an administration on plain business principles, and to have local- statutes executed by re- liable business men, whether they call themselves Democrats or Republicans, is a first condition of reform. A good deal of preliminary work for this change has already been done. It is, for instance, the rule in a great many of our principal cities that local elections shall be kept entirely separ- ate from state and national contests. When all elections were held on the same day it was simply impossible to keep issues distinct; and to induce the man who felt that party interests were at stake, in the success of the general ticket, to act as .an independent voter in electing municipal officers. But now the establishing of the spring election to settle local affairs has sim- plified the issue and forced men to act upon it. What remains to be dona is to get the people 'interested enough to make themselves felt in the primary elections and nominating conventions.; If they wait until the political man- agers have fixed up their tickets there remains nothing to them but the old lottery, in which, on election day, they may draw a few prizes, but are sure of numerous blanks. The next step is to secure harmonious action by the leading business men in both parties prior to any election; to have them get . together and agree upon representative candidates to manage their affairs, without regard to party affiliations; and so to build up a business machine for local government that will be as ef fective for good as the political . ma- chine has been effective for evil. There is no matter which touches more closely the health, happiness, and the property interests of our people than this. Where they feel the in- fluence of good or bad government once, as exerted . from the state or 'the national capital, they feel it a thousand times as exerted from their city halls. The very first point of at- tack in the campaign for good govern ment is the municipality. That must be redeemed everywhere from the hands of selfish or incompetent men. Place-hunters and chronic office-seek- ers must give way to the business agents of the people. There is no ap- peal to patriotism or to self-interest which should take precedence of that addressed to men on behalf of a bet- ter, purer, more efficient and more business-like system of local govern- ment. yyS~yy NOT AGAINST IT. NOT AGAINST IT. To the Editor of the Globe. In the book entitled "Coin at School In Finance," by Editor George E. Rob- crts, .of Fort Dodge, 10., on page 93 it is stated that John Sherman voted against the law of 1873, demonetizing silver. Will you kindly say in your correspondents' column if this Is true. Yours truly, J.S.CAMPBELL. Motley, Minn., May 29, 1895. - Mr. Roberts is partly right and still wrong. Mr. Sherman's connection with the several bills is as follows: In 7 the second session of the Forty- first congress Mr. Sherman introduced a bill, prepared by the secretary of the treasury and comptroller, revising the coinage law. Section 15 made no pro- vision for the coinage of a silver dol lar. In December, 1870, he reported the bill back to ' the ; senate with sev eral amendments. The only one of importance was one imposing a charge for coinage. This amendment was lost, Mr. Sherman voting for it. On the passage of the bill Mr. Sherman voted no. The bill went to the house but was not acted on. In the first ses sion of the Forty-second congress W. D. Kelly introduced, the same bill in the house, and in. the second 7 session' ■ reported it back without amendment and a recommendation ;to pass. It passed the house with a silver dollar of 384 - grains weight provided for, to be legal tender to $5, and went to the senate, where, in the third session, 7 Mr. Sherman reported the bill back with an amendment dropping the; house-bill : dollar and providing the . trade dollar of 420 grains. The debate was mostly on Casserly's objection to ■ the omission of the eagle on the silver - coins, Mr. • Sherman sustaining ;• the proposition to replace it with a stamp 7 showing the weight and fineness. The: : amendments were adopted and - - the i bill returned to the house, which non- concurred, and a conference was ap- pointed with Mr. Sherman chairman of the senate committee. The confer- ees reported to their houses the agree- ment which, so far as is material now, retained the senate's amendment! pro- viding * the * trade dollar and omitting the standard "dollar, and the report was adopted in both houses in Febru ary, 1873, without a division. Mr. Rob- crts was misled by Senator Sherman's negative vote on the bill of 1871. The last bill had his support. Sl THE NEW* REFRIGERATOR. However much men s may hold in contempt those . students whose aim it is to glean from. the study of the nature, the actions, the motives and the experience of men, regarded either singly or in their aggregations called governments, those data from which they deduce general laws of action grouped under the head of the science of political economy, -they have a decided / respect for the other men who unlock the secrets "of chemical actions and reactions, the combina tions and eliminations, which thu3 far have had such a tremendous effect on the conditions of men. The chemist in his laboratory i 3 regarded with awe, by the men who will look on the politi cal economist, pursuing the same ob- ject and reaching his conclusions by the same methods, as being what Mar- shall Jewell once contemptuously termed one of "those dam literary fel- lows." . We have become so accustomed to- the marvelous discoveries of the chem ist that we have come to regard noth- ing as impossible for him, and so now, when Mr. Osborne, who is termed a thermic engineer— is hard to keep track of these newly devised titles comes with his cool proposition to dispense with the ice man and put the pipe in the house from which one can tap carbonic acid as we now do water; surround the ice cream freezer, with it; pipe it into the refrigerator, and convey it over the house in the pipes and through the radiators used in winter for warming, putting the control of the temperature iff summer under control as it is in winter, it causes no expression of wonder. In fact if we are not served at least weekly with some such discovery we feel as if something was out of order with the machine. It is not so much a discovery as an application that Mr. Osborne offers the public. The discovery lies in the cheaper production of carbonic acid, reducing the present cost of from 8- to 18 cents a pound* to 75 cents a ton, a price - that will make the ice man groan. It is produced from soft coal and limestone, one of several products, ; all having a commercial value. The coal is coked and the tar and am- moniacal liquor saved and utilized. The coke is used to calcine the lime- stone, and the lime produced is mar ketable. The dioxide resulting is pur- \ ified, cooled, compressed and liquefied, and conveyed in pipes wherever want- cd. It can be made sufficient quan tities ,'to be .carried . in pipes j about a city and into the houses, much as gas or water is. The "teas is also effica cious as a fire extinguisher. With the recent discovery of methods of pro ducing an illuminating gas at a merely : nominal cost^as compared with pres- j ent . prices, and the discovery of this cheapened process of producing car bon dioxide, 7 the prospects. : of the breadwinners axe* brightening. .»-. . *an* — : — *■-•■*..■■■. yy\ Teachers arid other employes of the Teachers and other employes of the public- schools in Illinois, ' who have been in continuous service for twenty-* 'five years in 7 the case of men, and thirty in that of women,. are to be re- tired on half-pay, according to an act passed by the last legislature.

AT THE THEATERS. Metropolitan— Vaudeville. The third week of the Alhambra Vaudevilles at the Metropolitan opened last night, a large and appre ciative audience- being present. The ' new bill Is probably- the best yet. pre- sented, despite the excellent quality of last week's programme. An immense hit was made by the Nelson family of acrobats, who presented the best act :I of the kind ever seen *in this city. There are seven members of this won- derful family, and they are all grace- ful and skillful acrobats. They appear In full evening dress, and perform so many remarkable feats that it would be difficult to name the best. Many of the feats executed by the Nelsons were conceived by them, and were never seen here before. Some of their ' acts seem almc:3t miraculous, and they are don© with an ease and grace which makes them all the more en- joyable. That the Nelsons well deserve ■' the title of "premier acrobats of the * world" will "not be disputed by any one who witnesses their performance. Travellers shadowgraphs proved a most delightful portion of the even- ing's entertainment. With the aid of his dexterous fingers Travelle throws all kinds of pictures on the canvas. His performance is unique, artistic and wonderful. Dora Wiley, the young woman who has achieved much fame as "the sweet singer of Maine," came in for a very large share of the hon ors. Her voice is sweet and clear and shows thorough cultivation: Her sing- ing is by far the best yet heard with the Alhambras. Miss Wiley is not only a delightful vocalist, but a handsome woman. '" Hickey and Cole made much fun with their comical burlesque trapeze act, and La Belle Adele gave an interest- ing performance on the revolving globe. A particularly pleasing number on the programme was the contortion act of the Lender sisters, tots who must be under ten years of age. Anda and Flora McKee presented a comedy sketch. TrAlAr Giguere and Boyer were one of the best successes of the evening, their specialty proving a pleasing novelty. The warbling of Mr. Giguere Is the best ever heard in this city, and he was recalled repeatedly. Miss Boyer is a very charming little soubrette. Fred I Lucler, In a comedy act, and Julia Kelly, in a new musical act, were also pleasing features of the programme. Same bill every afternoon and evening. Silver Trilby hearts will be prsented to all the ladies attending . the daily matinees this week. «7-20-S.JJ It Is not exaggeration to say that - comedy— pure, clean and enjoyable comedy— never been more cleverly rendered in St. Paul than at the Grand opera house last night. Better mdi vidual presentations there have been perhaps, but balanced up as a whole, it would be Impossible to pick out and specify any company that has sur- passed, If they have approached, tho gem of artistic dramatic conception that scintillated on. the stage 'of the Grand last evening. In the light of the conscientious, faithful and most admirable work that . has been performed in this city by the Giffen and Neill company, it is nothing less .. than discouraging to those who love the work of the true artist to reflect on the failure of St. Paul people to feast on the strong, beautiful and finished conceptions that have been crystallized Into dramatio life during the season of this really re- markable company. Only once In a lifetime is such a happy combination effected. It is a pity, Indeed, that it is not appreciated, encouraged and cherished when it comes. There may be difficulty in finding ex- j pressions to fittingly portray the en. 'thuslastlcally. favorable 'judgment of all who witnessed last evening's per- formance. .Time and again did the ap plause break forth, Involuntarily, even in the midst of a sentence. At times the situations, the vim and "go" of I the action, were simply irresistible It was a keen pleasure to watch every move on the stage, an unalloyed joy to hear the flashing repartee and the stlngless cross-firing of the characters, 7 an exquisite satisfaction to commend the development of the climax and to applaud it when it came. " The comedy presented Is not any too well known, and seldom is it seen, but its merit is undoubted. As Flos, the much-sought-for original of a striking picture catalogue ' number 7-20-8— Henrietta Crossman was superb, at • once 'jolly, forceful, coy and loving. James Neill was cast for a part, that he handled most happily; and Maher ■> assumed a difficult role; like the master of his art that he is. Some of the ! scenes in which these three were on i I could not! well be Improved upon. They | were simply delicious treats, novel and complete. Fanny Burt and Fred Perry, Charles Kent and Kate Blancke, George Denham and Annie Blancke, i each separately, and all in unison, ac- quitted themselves In a fashion that left nothing to cavil at. Criticism of such a thorough exhibition of train- ing, guided by consummate ability, would be impertinent; and only praise can be thought of. No better thing of its kind has graced the stage in St. Paul. The people who present It bring out all Its strong points with pleasurable thoroughness, and those who enjoy the . cream of comedy must not miss seeing! and tast- ing the article offered this week at the Grand. It could easily stand a long ' run without palling. y7 : "7-20-8" will run until Wednesday evening, inclusive. Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings "A Scrap of Paper," by Sardou, will be put on; and "Little Lord Fauntleroy" will be the Saturday matinee' attraction. ,i-i, DEPUTIES GET EXCITED.

The woman had been stabbed and beaten to death with some blunt instrument which has not yet been found. Other occupants tell a story of a gentleman who called on Miss Harrington frequently and took her driving. In the murdered woman's room was found a photo- graph of ex-State Senator L. W. Buck, one of the most prominent fruit grow- ers of the state. The people of the house Identified the picture of Buck as that of the man who called to see Miss Harrington. The police sent to Senator Buck's house in Oakland and requested him to come to San Fran- cisco and tell what he knew of the case. Mr. Buck started to drive to the station, but on the way was thrown from the buggy and seriously injured. He is suffering from concussion of the brain and may not recover. Senator Buck was at his home in Oakland yes- terday between the hours of 11 and 3 o'clock, and It Is known the murder was committed between 11 and 1 o'clock. A young Japanese who had engaged a room In the house has been detained pending Investigation, but Is not believed to have had anything to do with the murder. Ex-Senator Buck's physicians said tonight the injured man could not pos sibly survive, and his death is only a question of a few hours. When he fell Mr. Buck struck the ground on his head, fracturing his skull. While the police will not say defin itely that they suspect Senator Buck of the murder, actions lead to the be- lief that he knows something about it, as it has been proved that Buck knows something of the matter. Buck was a frequent caller on Miss Harrington, and had taken her driving and to various pleasure resorts. The police say the murder was committed by some one intimately acquainted with Miss Harrington and her habits. Who- ever committed the murder let himself in. at the front door with a key. If Miss Harrington let the man in it was undoubtedly some one with whom she was on intimate terms, as she was only partially dressed when the murder was committed. The police searched through the papers found in the room in the hope of finding some clew. .When asked what was the result of the. search, Capt. Lees said he had found certain evidence which he could not make public at this time. Then a conference of the detectives was held, and at its close Chief of Police Crow- ley, accompanied by an Oakland de- tective, went to Oakland, where Sena- tor Buck resides. The detectives have investigated the statement by Senator Buck's family that he was at home at the time the murder was committed. When questioned as to the accuracy of this statement, the detective who made the investigation avoided ques- ' tions. Owing to Buck's prominence and his tragic fate which befell him before he had an opportunity to clear himself of suspicion which has grown up against him, or explain his con- nection with Miss Harrington, the murder has created a sensation only exceeded by the Emanuel church mur- . ders of a few weeks ago.

OUR TABLE. % Those who have read the preceding three volumes of John Bach McMas- ter's "History of the People of the United States" will have had their ap petites sharpened for the fourth vol ume,; just out, from the press of D. Appleton & Co. As the period covered by. the present volume was that of the war of 1812, at the opening of which the last volume left the reader, there Is less of a resort to old newspapers, letters and out of the way sources of Information ; less of the story of the people and more of that of the United States, gleaned from the reports. But there is no departure from the former style of narrative and there Is enough of the personal or the individual In- cidents of history to make the volume still a history of the people. The vol ume takes us through the war of 1812 - through the financial depression that followed it; the appearance for the first time of a distinctly protective tar- iff for protection's sake; the experi ments in banking and note issues, and closes with the opening events of that long anti-slavery crusade, beginning with the proposed admission of Mis- souri and ending with Lincoln's eman cipation proclamation. The volume closes with the admission of Missouri In 1821. While there 13 no lack of American histories there is none that occupies precisely the field taken by Mr. McMaster, and certainly there ls none more entertainingly written.

The story of poor lit- tle Sonny, who was born while his mother was separated from all her people after the horrors of the In- dian mutiny at Cawnpore, is told in a way that is entirely Mrs. Cotes' own. The husband and father, a great En- glish soldier, did not . learn of the birth of the little child, who, with his mother, was cared for by the natives, as though they had never felt a bit of hatred in the world for the white oppressors. Mrs. Cotes gives some of her humorous descriptions of Indian life and Indian customs, and the book is quite as Interesting to persons look- ing for an hour's entertainment as was "Vernon's Aunt."

To the Editor of the Globe. You have a communication on th« burning of Fort Pembina, and a note at the foot in which It is mentioned that Maj. Collins was In command and captured the Fenian forces. The offi cer who was in command at the tlmo mentioned was then (October, 1871) Capt. (now colonel) Wheaton. The gang were then looting (he Hudson bay store on the other side of the line. When the military went from this side and met the late Mr. Bradley, a justice of the peace in Manitoba, O'Donehugh, that had been an officer under the late Rlel In the former R< I river rebellion, and I think L pine and the celebrated general, O'Xeil, who in 1868 gathered a crowd at Rouse's Point in the state of Xew York to Invade Canada at Cornmeal, on the River St. i Lawrence. A number of them got to St. Riges, seized a steamboat and started to make the Invasion, but got gloriously drunk on the- boat and lost their way on the river, changed their mind and returned to St. Riges. Capt, Collins did not come to Pembina for ten years after the arrest of the Fenians by Capt. Wheaton. Collins was succeeded by Mai. Brarden, who put the- fort Into its neat military ap pearance, In which state it was kept by each succeeding commander up to its destruction by fire. , VI XT ARM IS. Pembina, May 31, 1895. mm* TIIE RinLE RY TELEGRAPH. THE lUIII-!" "-V TELEGRAPH. Hon Gen. Strata Secured the First Scoop, James B. Swain, who died the other day in New York city, was Greeley's partner in the publication of the "Log Cabin" in the campaign of 1840, and was all his life a worker in the ranks of newspaper men. The Times says of him that he was the first man who sent "dummy dispatches" • over the ' telegraph wires in order to hold them for his exclusive use, and thus shut out other correspondents. This was done while he was correspondent for the Tribune, the occasion being the opening of the Erie railway through to Dunkirk. He and Bayard Taylor were working together, and there was only one wire available for press matter. Gen. Swain saw that unless something was done they might be shut out, and In order to hold the wire he got the operator a copy of the Bible to send. The operator wanted to know what part of it to send. He was told to be- gin at the beginning and send straight through. When Gen. Swain and Bay- ard Taylor had their copy ready, the Bible was Interrupted long enough to send the message, and then work on the Bible was resumfed. In this way the paper secured a "beat."
