The financial value that accompanies artistic success is again illustrated in the case of Nordica, the great so prano, whose triumphs at * Bayreuth last summer were heralded far and near. Before her overwhelming Euro pean success managers estimated her services at $600 for each performance, but the contract for this season calls for $1,200 per night for fifty nights. Sixty thousand as against $30,000 is a handsome increase. Her home in Lon don is a beautiful example of taste and refinement.

BEEFSTEAK SUPPER joyed by the St. Paul Newspa per Men.

GAP Of POLITICS MOVES IX THE MAYORALTY CON TEST BEING MADE RATHER SLOWLY. NO ONE IS STANDING OUT AS THE PROBABLE CANDIDATE OF EITHER PARTY AT THIS TIME. COPELAND»S FRIENDS HAPPY. With Gen. Child's Opinion Favor able They Think He Han a Walkaway. To the man who has observed and remembers any considerable span of local political history there is little to startle, or even to interest, in the present status of the combinations on both sides of the political fence in St. Paul. Within a month, very likely the mayoralty possibilities will begin to engage earnest atten tion from the politicians; and it will not be long afterwards until the man engrossed altogether in business or money getting, pure and simple, will evince a passing interest in the same subject. Despite this fact, no man stands out on either side today as a candidate for the mayoralty nom ination. And many are heard to say that such a condition is strange; but it is not so, really. * * * In other years when a city election was approaching there were, it is true, men before the public who were either avowed candidates or who let it be understood that they were "in the hands of their friends" for the undisguised purpose of being groomed for the mayoralty race. But in very few cases, if any at all, was the willing man selected. About ev ery time that Robert A. Smith was nominated there had been others "mentioned," and some of them most persistently. It was so, too, of the Republican side, in a less degree, be cause that party was not often con sidered as having a winning chance in St. Paul. But when the .conven tion day came, and the real tests of fitness or availability were applied, the oft-mentioned people were men tioned no longer. » * » Contests in convention for the may oralty nomination have not been known in St. Paul in the same sense that they have been in Minneapolis and other cities. But .they have been more numerous in Republican conventions than in Democratic, although the latter party was always judged to have by far the better chance of winning. Public opinion concentrates on the right man very rapidly in this city or perhaps the ..manipulators are more clever and manage the conven tions better than their prototypes in other cities. For instance, when P. H. Kelly and a few of the other vet eran Democratic leaders were hand ling the political ribbons in St. Paul, they always took care to so shape matters that what fight there was in the air would be exhausted either be fore or at the primaries; and if the delegates did not come out of the convention entirely satisfied, they at least came out with a united front, prepared to smother personal feeling in order to defeat the common enemy. Discipline in the rank and file was not perhaps ideal, but it was 'most thorough among the men who man aged, advised and furnished the sin ews of war. •■■**• And it must be borne in mind that the earlier Democratic leaders were men who had the interests of the city at heart. They took care that the very best timber available should be util ized, especially for the position of chief executive. In proof of this con the list of Democratic mayors — Prince, Rice, Dawson, Kitt son, Becker, O'Brien, Maxwell, Gorman, Smith and others all men of honor, integrity and a high sense of public duty. Mistakes were sometimes made, no doubt, but scandal was never attached to the name of St. Paul by their acts or by reason of corruption oj* neglect of duty. Nearly all of them have served without compensation that was wor thy the name, but they were none the less faithful and loyal on that account. The recent searching inves tigation of the so-called Parker com mittee furnishes in its results the best evidence of the wisdom of the Democratic party in selecting rulers for the city. While it may show chance for improvement, the com mittee is not able to lay its hand on one rotten spot placed on the fair • name of the city by a Democratic mayor. * • * Leaders and manipulators who have followed the older men may be more tricky, because the science of politics has developed like every thing else, but they have never for a moment dared to nominate a ques tionable candidate, even on the score of personal popularity. And they will not attempt such a thing this time. But the question that is agitat ing the Democratic voters is: Who shall lead us in the spring cam paign? Mayor Smith has let it be understood that he is not going to try for or accept the nomination again; Hon. O. O. Cullen, who has served the city well and faithfully in years past, says very plainly that he does not seek and does not want the honor of leadership; John J. Parker, on whom sentiment seemed to be crystallizing at one time, has sent forth the same declaration. Who, then? ask the canvassers of politics. Their minds have been running on the chances of two or three men, from personal interest or by force of contact with friends of those men; but in the narrowness of their rea soning they have never given a thought to any one of the hundreds of solid, public-spirited gentlemen who give allegiance to the Demo cratic party, and who have ren dered that allegiance consistently through good and evil report. It is not necessary to mention names. It is sufficient to say that there are any number of such men in St. Paul; and when the time comes the solid and earnest members of the party will name the right men, if for no other reason than that they cannot afford to spoil the record or take any chances at this critical period in the life of the city. And this feel ing of security in the possession of plenty of good timber it is that al lows the Democrats of St. Paul to rest easy until the time arrives when action . will be necessary. Then, they will do the right thing in the right way. _ , ; . v • * • Selection of proper men for the council will, after all, engage as much attention as the mayoralty candidate; because it is realized on all sides that without good men in the assembly and board of. alder men the mayor will be able to do but little on any line of reform.. This feeling regarding the aldermen is. prevalent among the members of both parties, and will make ? itself felt in the conventions. Even the most enthusiastic Democrats do not reckon on a walk-away in the spring campaign, and the Republicans are cherishing the fond hope that they will have a more even chance?, than they ever had .before. In 'conse quence extreme care is likely to be taken by both parties in picking candidates, for the various .offices, and whoever wins the city will-bene fit. - .-• ■ ?■£;&•• * •*•■•-■■ Now is the Joyful summer time of Assemblyman John Copeland's life. Neither Senator Sheehan nor Eli Warner may remain in the list of available candidates for the mayor alty nomination., The supreme court's decision has put both of them in the doubtful row. Attorney Gen eral Childs': opinion which is expect ed Monday, will settle the question. AVith that against the gentlemen mentioned the Dispatch will be with "out a candidate ? unless it takes up F. B. Doran. But Mr. Doran stands little or no show to get the support of any delegation except that which will come from the Sixth ward. The First ward delegation will far out number-the , Doran- delegates, and Copeland's backers assert most em phatically that they will not be dic tated to by the silk-stocking fellows from the Seventh. Already they are putting up combinations with the Eighth ward manipulators in John's favor, and as the First ward assem blyman has always cultivated the favor of Billy Johnson's ward he will easily beat any other candi date in a struggle for the votes of that delegation. The second is also reckoned safe for Copeland, and only the springing in of a very popular Third ward candidate could take from him the support of that ward. If these calculations of his friends hold good to the extent they suspect, John Copeland will be nominated for the office of mayor by the Re publicans without a struggle. * * * To lay aside local politics a mo ment, a story from the East will bear repetition. It is to the effect that a Democratic leader from South ern Minnesota during a recent visit to New York, met Senator Gorman and dined with him. After eating, the gentlemen, who have long been friends, fell into conversation about the recent elections and Grover Cleveland. In the course of the talk Senator Gorman is alleged to have made a positive statement of his belief that Mr. Cleveland will again run for the presidency if he can manage to get the nomination, and Mr. Gorman further stated it as his belief that the president is directing all his efforts to making himself the only available man for the national convention to consider. . The senator frankly stated that he believed the money power and the business men of the East, of both parties, would bend every energy to have Mr. Cleveland renominated, and would then turn in and elect him.

Kelloes Talks About the Leather Market. Cyrus H. Kellogg, of Kellogg, Johnson & Co., returned home yes terday from New York city, where he has been for the past two weeks. Mr. Kellogg said that at the time he left New York, which was on Thurs day last, the business situation seemed to be improving. He could speak positively as to the condition of the leather business. "When I left New York," said Mr. Kellogg, "the turning point in the leather market had passed and the price was rising. But how the panic that has just occurred will affect these favorable conditions, of course I can not say, not knowing how long it will last. I took notice that there was very little talk of war on the streets, though the newspapers were full of it." Weddings, Receptions, Society.

Tuberculosis is said to be prevalent among the. milch cows of this city and some of the dairies have already taken steps to have their cows tested. The diaries that have taken this action are those of Seifert Stray, Messrs. Moser Brothers, Keough Brothers and Bragg Brothers. The first named dairy has recently had its thirty-six cows tested with tuberculin. Of this number only one showed any reaction. It was at once removed and will be killed. ."•. So far tuberculosis has not gained a strong foothold, but should tuberculous animals be permitted to remain in con tact with healthy ones in closed build ings during the winter months there is danger of infecting a large number. Consequently steps are being taken to weed out the sick animals. We call the Attention of our readers to notice of the State Savings Bank un der announcements.
