CROOKSTON, Minn., May 19.—The Red
Lake rush for lands has been temporarily
eclipsed in interest in this city by the ex
cessively high water. The memory of man
does not recall a higher stage in the Red \
river than the present. It is twenty-eight j
feet above the low water mark. The stream !
is a mile wide in the south portion of the ,
city. The bridges still hold, but the work j
done in an attempt to prevent the water j
from flooding Chase's addition was futile,
and at midnight the water broke oVer the j
dyke, and submerged the entire tract. The !
water is stationary tonight and is falling up |
river, and it is believed nothing worse will
happen. Some stock has been drowned and j
a number of small buildings carved out, but j
the flood has been unaccompanied by a hard j
storm, and effects are less serious than they
would otherwise have been.
At least 200 families have been forced to ;
leave their homes, and are being eared for j
by their more fortunate neighbors. A relief
committee has been organized, which will j
care for the sufferers" until the flood abates. |
A special meeting of the city council was j
called this afternoon to consider the situa
tion and provide for future emergencies.

Carl ton County Said to Have the

Special to the Globe.
DULUTH, Minn.. May 19.—1t is said that |
Carlton county, Minn., has the largest slate
deposit in the world, and that the only rea
son it is not being worked is because no
one has yet paid enough attention to it to
develop it. D. V. Scott, county resident, says
that the slate Is superior to any other de
posits because of its lightness and durability.
One man is already working a couple of pits
in a small way, and he finds a ready market
for all he can get out. It is said that this
slate can be placed in the Duluth and Twin
City markets for less than the cost of freight
from the Pennsylvania or New Jersey quar
ries. Slate lands can be purchased in Carl
ton county from $50 to $100 per acre, while
in Pennsylvania the price ranges from $500
to $1,000 per acre.

ASHLAND, Wis., May 19.—The annual sale
of lands for taxes took place in the trea
surer's office today. Sales were rather light,
some of the buyers giving, as a reason for
their light bidding, the fact that so many
certificates have been declared illegal. The
heaviest buyers were J. Hammel & Co., of
Appleton, and the North Wisconsin Land
company, of Milwaukee. Glenway Maxon, of
Milwaukee, who was the Democratic candi

It Stirred Up a Riot in the City of

Cuba, coupled with the hatred of the lower

factory, made offensive demonstrations
against the owner of the factory—a Spaniard—
shouting "Death to Spaniards."
When the Spaniard, thinking the man was
about to draw a knife, hit him, a mob gath
ered shouting "Death to Spaniards," and
"Cuba libre," and then began stoning the

CLEVELAND, 0., May 19.—The deadlock
in the Methodist Epiecopal general confer
ence over the election of two bishops was
broken today by the Selection of Dr. Charles
C. McCabe, of New York, and Dr. Earl Cran
ston, of Cincinnati. H was apparent when
the delegates assemb ed this morning that
they were tired of the balloting and were de
termined to bring matters to an issue. The
ball was set rolling by Rev. C. L. Stafford,
of lowa, who moved that the election of
bishops be postponed indefinitely. This pre
cipitated a lively discussion and the motion
was defeated. Then Dr. A. B. Leonard, of
Cincinnati, moved tha£ in future ballots the
name of no candidate be announced who re
ceived less than ten votes. That motion car
ried and it smashed the deadlock. From the
first the conference had been voting for two
candidates on each ballot; that is, each dele
gate had two votes on each ballot. On every
ballot from one to two hundred votes were
scattered among a score or more of candi
dates who had no chance of election. As soon
as it was decided that candidates must re
ceive more than ten votes to be counted, the
delegates saw that the time to do something
had arrived. A combination was quickly
formed. On the fourteenth ballot Mr. Mc-
Cabe's vote Jumped to 258, from 190, what
he had received OB~cbG bal'ot taken last
night, and Dr. Cranston's from 246 to 261.
That indicated clearly who the leaders were,
and on the fifteenth ballot, Dr. McCabe's vote
rose to 344, or more than were needed to
elect, while Dr. Cranston polled 328, or eight
more were needed. The next ballot gave the
victory to Dr. Cranston, and the "West and
East had both elected taeir candidates.
Bishop Walden, speaking of the result, said
it was an Ohio day. Both of the bishops
elected are natives of the Buckeye state, and
six of the sixteen bishops now on the board
were born in Ohio. They are Stephen M.
Merrill, John M. Walden, Isaac W. Joyce,
Charles C. McCabe, Earl Cranston and James
M. Thoburn. Bishop Foster, who was retired,
is also an Ohio man.
After the election of the bishops the confer
ence took up the election of two Book agents
for New York. Dr. Buckley obtained the floor
and moved that nominations be made on a call
of conferences. The motion to nominate by
conferences was carried. Nonlmations for
agents for the Western book concern, at Cin
cinnati, were then called for. In both cases
two were to be elected. Before the second
vote was taken the result of the first ballot
for the New York agent was read. Dr. Homer
Eaton was overwhelmingly re-elected, and
after taking the first ballot on the Cincinnati
concern and the second on New York, the
conference adjourned. Both votes will be an
nounced in the morning.
Some of the delegates are working to have
the staff of the church extension society de
creased. This cropped out at a meeting of the
committee on church extension today. The
committee recommended that a work in state
and national law as it applies to the holding
of churches, be included in the course of
reading of theological students. It was also
voted that where a cburch asks aid in build
ing and accepts it, the building must conform
with the plans approved by the church ex
tension board. '
There was a hot discussion before the com
mittee on missions on the proposition that per
sons may specify the purposes Tor which spe
cial gifts to the church shall be used. Bishop
Thoburn is exceedingly anxious that this be
done. A few days ago he said that if better
support was not given the mission work in
India one out of every six missionaries there
WGUId be compelled to return home. Today
he said that while that might not be the re
sult, a continuance of the present conditions
might prevent his' return to India. The
change proposed mci with the opposition of
Dr. McCabe and Dr. Leonard. The matter
was held over. The book committee today
recommended subsidies amounting to $18,280
per year for several of the church papers.
It Took Up the Tine of the Kansas
City Conference.
KANSAS CITY, May 19.—The woman ques
tion took up the principal part of today's
session of the Methodist Protestant con
ference, but adjournment until tomorrow was
taken without its being disposed of. The
nommittee on certificates reported favoring
the seating of all delegates who are en
rolled as members, which, of course, includes
the women, the committee holding that they
were constitutionally elected. Rev. Dr. J. T.
Murray, of Maryland, moved the word "con
stitutional" be omitted and J. R. Caton, of
Alexandria, Va., spoke against the amend
ment, saying that it would kill the meaning
of the report. Rev. J. A. Thorpe, of To
ronto, 0., moved the previous question, which
was carried without any particular opposi
tion. Rev. Murray thereupon made a caustic
speech in which he referred to "gag" rule,
■ aid ended by offering two amendments to the
proposition. One was to amend the consti
tution so as to set forth plainly that min
isterial delegates to'the general conference be
either male or female, and that lay delegates
be either men or women. The second sought
to amend the constitution, making women
eligible as elders of the church. A motion ,
to refer the matter to tha Judiciary com
mittee was finally carried and adjournment
till tomorrow taken. The corner stone of the

The Minnesota crop bulletin gays: The past
■week has been one of frequent rains, some
sections o? the" state having experienced six
consecutive rainy days, beginning with last
Tuesday. The result of so much rain has
been to greatly retard farm work, many farm
ers not being able to get on to their fields at
all, while in the Red fiver valley four days'
work was reported for the week. Wheat
seeding is nearly completed south of Clay
county, and north of that county It Is about
half done. Corn is being planted* but many
are holding back, thinking It yet unfavorable
for planting. The cool wet weather during

favorable for the stoollng of wheat. Rye is
heading. Oats, barley and flax seeding Is
general, having been reported as far north as
Clay county. Garden truck Is mostly planted.
Small fruit of all kinds is looking well. Hail

warmth with frequent showers has proved
highly favorable to crops, after the extreme
heat of the previous week. Wheat in north
and central counties is much improved, also
in the west portion of the southern section,
but injury by bugs, dryness and heat caused
a generally poor condition in most southeast
counties, and some fields there are still be
ing plowed up. The grain Is generally head

Corn planting Is practically ended and early
fields are up with a good stand and cultiva

DES MOINBS, 10., May 19.—The lowa crop
bulletin says: Considerable damage to
crops has been done by washing out and
flooding in some localities where the heavier
downpours of rain have occurred. Corn
planting has been retarded and probably
some replanting will be necessitated. Grass
and small grain have made a phenomenal
growth. The only draw back Is a tendency
to rank growth of oats and wheat, which
may cause damage by lodging or rust.

to work on low lands. However, the. work in
this section was so well along as to make a
good showing when this brief period set in.
Light frosts occurred In scattered sections
during the latter part of the week, but no
damage is reported to crops therefrom. As
a whole about 75 per cent of the wheat seed
ing has been completed and farmers are now
seeding corn, flax, barley, oats, millet and
potatoes. The weather, however, is yet a
trifle cool for corn.

HILLSBORO, N. D., May 19.—The down
pcur of rain has* deluged everything. Seed
ing Is nearly done. Corn and po'ato pluiiting
will be late. But It is hoped the fine growing
weather will prove a compensation. The chief
fear is that the much rain predicted for the
next ten days may hinder planting.

DUBUQUE, 10., May 19.—The Democratic
state convention will meet at 10 o'clock tomor
row morning. A majority of the delegates
have already arrived and h.ave been In caucus
tcday on preliminaries. The state committee
had decided upon S. S. Wright, of Tipton, for
temporary chairman, but the silver men are
today talking of a change on account of ob
jectionable features of his intended speech.
j Should they refuse to Indorse the committee's
choice, E. M. Carr, of Manchester, is likely
to be selected, and he may also be made perma
nent chairman. The resolutions will be un
compromisingly for free Fllver at 10 to 1, and
for Boles for president. Silver men claim 7CO
out of 947 delegates, and, unless their prppent
programme Is changed, will begin the fight
on the opposition at the very opening.
The fight between the sliver and gold fac
tions which has been expected seems tonight
to have been practically settled in advance.
The gold standard delegates held a confer
ence this evening, and practically gave up
the contest, although many favored a bolt.
Ex-Gov. Boies was given an ovation on his
arrival today. He was urged to accept the
, permanent chairmanship, but he declined. He
will probably name the man, who is likely
to be Judge Van Wagenen. of Sioux City, or
Michael Healy, of Fort Dodge. Figures given
out tonight as showing the relative strength
of the factions in the convention are: Sil
ver, 663; gold standard, 257.

COLUMBIA, S. C, May 19.— The state Dem
ocratic convention me«is tomorrow at noon.
Most of the delegates have already arrived.
I Of 320 delegates there are not more that 15
j who favor the single gold standard, so the con
vention Is sure to adopt the strongest kind of
declaration in favor of free silver. Senator
Tillman has declared his intention of leading
the South Carolina delegation in a bolt from
the Chicago convention if its platform should
! not contain a flat-footed declaration for free
i silver and its nominees should not be such
i men as he thinks will carry out pledges for
i siher. Senator Irby. the state Democratic
j chairman, is opposed to this policy. A ma
f Jerky of the members of the convention ad
here to Tillman as against Irby, but the con
vention will vote down resolutions instructing
either for or against a bolt. Tillman will head

ABERDEEN, S. D., May 19.-About 1%
Democrats from various parts of the state
have arrived to attend the convention, which
will be called to order In the Grain palace to
morrow afternoon. The trains reached the
city so late that there has been little opportu*
nity for an interchange of opinions, and th»
delegates are much at sea. Among the more
prominent ones on the ground aro Judge Car

Sioux Fails; National Commltteeman Woods,
of Itapid City; McDonald, of Deadwood;
Sheafo and Hanton, of Watertown; J. Leslie
Thompson, of Madifon; Miller, of Yankton;
Ramsey, of Woonsoeket. and Capt. Arnold, of
Ipswich. These leadprs, and others, concede
that a battle on the money question scema
inevitable, as the free silver sentiment is much
more pronounced and rampant than had been
.expeetod. In fact, the silver representation
Is claiming the earth tonight, and is making
about all the r.oise. Quite an element would
be gUd to keep ihe money question out of the
convention as much as possible, but It is
generally admitted that it will appear at an
early stage and be fought to a finish. The
! free silver forces arc confident, apparently, of
their ability to control the convention and
j name delegates. This the administration and
sound money men will not conced?, though
admitting they have their hands full.
It is predicted tonight that the delegates ta
Chicago will not be instructed for any candi
date, but will be bound with an Ironclad r.-so
lution on the money and other questions.

DTJLUTH, May 19.—The St. Louis county
Democratic convention, to elect delegates to
the state convent ; <>n, June 11. will bo held
: Monday, June 8, and there will be a pretty
flght to see what Duluth man will go an
delegate from this district to Chicago. St.
Louis county will endeavor to work In har
mony with Steams county, thp other end of
the district, as to representation, and. If pos
sible, collision on that point will be avoided.
If Steams counfy Insists on getting a dele
gate at large. Duluth and St. Louis county
will probably be content with ono of the
district delegates, leaving the other for the
country portion of the district. St. Loul3
county, at any rate, expects ono delegato at
least, and it will probably get It.
The two candidates who are now In tho
fl<?lrt are Charl«?s D'Autreraont and E. C.
Gridley. The first named la easily most
prominent. He Is an ex-mayor of Duluth,
ha." always occupied a leading position in
Democracy here, and in 1802 he might have
been the Sixth district's candidate for con
gress had he desired. He is backed by a
number of the old-timers, John G. Brown.
C. P. Maginnis, T. T. Hudson and others,
and the one point against him is the fact that
some of his supporters are members of tha
"gang" which St. Louis county Democracy,
is Inclined to repudiate.
The other candidate, E. C. Gridley, has
a irlHsrtor.e about Ills v^h in the shape of
a speech, delivered a couple of years ai?o, In
which he severely criticised MaJ. Baldwin
on his vote to place Iron ore on the free list.
Another point of difference between the
prospective delegates is this: Mr. Gridley
favors a tariff on ore and free silver. Mr.
D'Autremont Is a staunch free trader, and
believes In honest money.
