SOT A NEGKO OITRAf'Ef
The Dispatch says that the removal
of Fred L. McGhee from the Republi
can electoral ticket in 1892 and the sub
stitution of Mr. Carlson in his Mead
was "Not a Negro Outrage," because
he was removed for refusal to pay the
JSO tax imposed by the state on nom
inees for that office. The writer of that
rial had to sit down hard on his
p< rsonal knowledge, for no man in the
state knows better than he that what
the Globe stated was true, and thai
Mr. McGhee was unceremoniously wip
ed iiff the ticket because "ac was a ne
gro, and for no other reason. A brief
statement of the histoiy of that, inc-i
--dent, now that the Dispatch has un
chaiiiy invited its resurrection, will
The negro voters of the two cities
wished, in view of the location of the
Kepubliran convention at Minriea^ods
that year and the eonsoQuent co-.i-ig
from the South of "iOO or 3*"o negro del
egates, to send Mr. McGhee to tint
convention as a deleKar.e-at-'.arge, as a
recognition of the loyalty of that class
to that party. In the convention this
was defeated by shrewd, parliamentary
tactics, but McGhee was named as al
ternate-at-large to ;he proprietor of
the Dispatch, which he promptly de
Then when the selection of presio-en
tial electors was the order -of business,
John Lind moved '.he nomination of
Mr. McGhee, and he was chosen. Very
soon afterward it was discovered that
no Swede had been put on tbe ; resi
dential electoral ticket, and there was
alarm in the camp. There c.iine a par
tial fusion of the Democrats nad Popu
lists that premised to defeat three Re
publican electors, and the national
prospect was getting threatening. Tl«e
B flection of a negro and the omission
of a Swede was regarded as a stupen
dous blunder that must be corrected at
once, as the loss of even one presili«n
tial elector might endanger the piesi
dency. There were rautter'.nss ani..n;v
Republicans ar.d threats that they
wouldn't vote for a nlgser for that of
fice or any other. Th * result *.vas that
Mr. Lamb, a secretary of the state
committee, called on Mr. McGhee p.ton
after the convention and said he had
been instructed by ehe committee to
ask him for the $50 nomination fee. Mr.
McGhee said that he would pay It in
time, but as no one else had paid, a
fact Mr. Lamb admitted, he would pay
it before the twenty -eight days before
the election, the limit llxel :n ihe law.
At Lamb's re-in-ist M •Ghee wrote t 1 c
committee a letter stating that he
would pay within the time.
The next intirrration he had was that
the committee had met and declared
his nomination vacant, but made no
appointment. He thereupon wrote
again offering to pay and, if demand
ed, tc pay at cnee, and asked to be
heard at the adjourned meeting. He
was there, but was kept cooling his
heels in the ante-room until adjourn
ment, when he was tcld that the va
cancy had been filled i»y the appoint
ment of the Swede, L'arlson. He went
to the secretary of state's office the
next day and tendered the c'so, but it
was refused because the secretary had
received notice of Ihe -haajie At '.hat
time no one of ;he other electors had
paid h's fee. Later he had a request
from Mr. Nelson to call on him ar.d

hurt and must do wh.it he could to
placate the colored vote. The fact v as,

II thla was not an outrage, if it did
not indicate repugnance lo the negro
as virulent as that shown in Hogans
ville, then the definition o£ .-u<iage
and repugnance must be rewritten. But
there was no need of adding insult to
misstatement. Mr. McGhee wentgjnto
that campaign and worked for the Ke
"publican ticket, pocketing the insult to
himself and his race. It wis rot until
the campaign two years later that he
quit the party that has never given
the negro anything but palaver and
slobber. Equally insulting is the state
ment that "in proportion to their pop
ulation and voting strength the ne
groes of Minnesota have been more
liberally recognized and patronized
than any other race." Possibly this
treatment of McGhee is considered lib
eral patronage;" for his people have
had nothing better. A negro has been
governor's messenger for several years,
but in 1892 it was proposed to discharge
him and appoint a Swede to counter
the "blunder" of the convention. A
negro does some kind cf janitor work
in the capitol, we hear, but one may
scan the places from top to bottom and
find no other black -faces occupying
them by appointment or election of
The gentleman who furnishes the
Associated Press with the comments
on the treasury statements at Wash
ington is a veritable Mark Tapley. He
is able to extract comfort from the
most discouraging situations, and in
his hands the nettle "deficit" blossoms
swiftly into the flower "surplus." As
the product of a bright and cheerful
disposition, his remarks on the Sep
tember showing are simply beautiful.
He prefaces them by telling us that
the revenue conditions are in every
way satisfactory; as, of course, they
must be, the precious Dingley bill be
ing now in operation. As one item of
this comfortable showing we learn that
the excess of expenditures over re
ceipts for the present month is $3,250,-
CO3. This, however, is a mere trifle;
and he tells us that "it is expected
that by Oct. 1 this excess will have
been reduced to $3,000,000 or less, mak
ing the deficit for the first quarter of
the fiscal year about $28,000,000." When,
under the Cleveland administration
there was, in the worst year known, a
deficit of something less than $70,000.-
COO, it was considered by our Repub
lican brethren to be great enough for
the subject of incessant preachment,
and to cause the administration to be
known as a breeder of deficits. Now
we have a shortage of $28,000,000 for
the first quarter, which is at the rate
of $112,000,000 a year. This, being un
der the McKinley administration, and,
of course, during the reign of "pros
perity," is no cause for surprise or dis
appointment or apprehension.
We learn further.as reflecting the out
look for the future, that "the receipts
from customs so far show no material
gain, nor is it expected that any sub
stantial improvement will be shown
until after the first of the year." There
is really no reason to expect any gain
then. The only ground offered for the
rosy hopes of the treasury statistician
is that sugar "is expected" to figure
prominently in the receipts, and also
that "much is expected from wool im
ports." Why our protection friends
should count upon anything tangible
from wool imports we do net under
stand. It was part of the bargain with
the free silver men from the Western
states, we believe, by whose votes the
Dingiey act was passed, that its wool
rate shculd be such as tc exclude im
ports. If it answers that purpose, it
will not produce revenue. If it pro
duces revenue at a rate to swell re
ceipts materially, it will not be ade
In any and all events, the future of
the treasury, as seen through Republi
can spectacles, is wholly a matter of
great expectations. We must remind
again the prophets of Republicanism,
who told us that the tariff question
came before the financial question, be
cause adequate revenue must l>e pro
vided for the government and deficits
stopped, that they have not fulfilled a
single promise. As a revenue producer
the Dingley bill must be a flat failure.
When we compare the least favorable
period of the operation of the Gorman
act with this McKinley deficit of $25,
--000.0G0 in three months, we get a bet
ter idea of the nature of Repub
lican boasts. Secretary Gage void the
truth when he said that protection and
revenue are mutually destructive.
What the Republican party told, when
it said that it was going to turn v.
deficit into a sin-plus and do it by
means of raising the tariff, it would
not be polite to say.
THE ""HO-sT FAVORED NATION."
A Washington dispatch says that
Spain has promulgated a new tariff
for Cuba wheh authorizes the imposi
tion of an additional 30 per cent tax on
imports from any country whose gen
eral tariff prejudices the products of
Spain by adding to the regular duties
a differential. The rates are arranged
in two columns, the one designated as
the fiscal tax, the other and larger one
the differential tax to be laid on im
ports from countries that are assu ned
to discriminate against Spain's prod
ucts. This feature is incorporated for
the purpose of countering the effects
of the Dir.gley act and to put Spain
in a position to dicker with this coun
try over the rates that shall be mutual
| iy imposed. This is but in keeping with
! our own policy and that being adopted
I as measures cf self-defense by other
; nations having commercial relations
j with us. Canada pursues the opposite
| course and offers a reduction cf one
; eighth this year and one-fourth next
| year in the taxes laid on imports from
i those countries which favor Canadian
But the noticeable feature about the
Spanish tariff is that it repeals the
"most favored nation" clause in all ex
isting treaties. That is a cautious pro
vision, inserted in all modern treaties
where possible, providing that the ex
ports of the contracting parties shall
not be charged higher duties when im
ported into the other than are the low
est charged by that countr;- on like
imports from any other country. The
Iflfi SAIiVX PAUL, U£,OH3. WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 29, 1897.
act provides that hereafter all treaties
or conventions which affect the cus
toms or the island must be special. If
Spain wishes to let in one or more prod
ucts of some country free of tax, she
can do so, and if the fiscal rate is to
be lowered or the differential rate re
moved, there must be a special nego
tiation and convention had. We are
told that, as affecting the interests of
this country, the new rates on wheat
are $1.20 regular and $1.80 differential
per 100 kilos (220.46 pounds), and on
wheat flour $1.50 regular and $2.45 dif
ferential, with similar discrimination
on a number of other articles.
The significance of this is the recog
nition by Spain of the real spirit of
protection by tariffs and the contradic
tion of that spirit by those provisions
that mitigate its severity, known as
"most favored nation" clauses and
"reciprocity." It is a recognition that
the spirit is that of war, none the less
implacable that the implements used
are enactments and taxes instead cf
j guns and shells. War seeks to gain
! benefits by inflicting upon the enemy
I the greatest possible amount of injury*.
Commercial war, .operating through
tariffs, aims at precisely the same end.
Hamper, destroy where you can, the
trade and commerce of every other
country that dares compete with your
own. If your measure sends thousands
of innocent workers to starvation, ic
joice at the "losses of the enemy," as
you would over a conflict on the san
guinary field. It is only from this point
of view that we can understand the
joy and pride with which our protec
tionists hailed the destruction r>f the
pearl button industry of Austria by the
McKinley tariff, with the ensuing mis
ery among the button makers, or com
prehend their similar rejoicing over
the miseries of the tin plate workers in
Wales. It is war, relentless, cruel,
heartless war, and the spirit it breeds
is that of war.
All "favored nations" and reciprocity
provisions deny and contradict the
logic of protection. They are surren
ders more or less complete of it. They
admit that reduction of taxation is ben
eficial, while protection insists that, it
is injurious. If we are to have com
mercial war, let it be war and not
dawdling. We would prefer free trade
I as logically applied, but the war party
is in power, and we insist it also shall
stand by its logic. We hail the action
of Spain, and the prior action of Eng
land in denouncing its "most favored"
nation treaties at the behest of Can
ada, as declarations of war without
TOO LONG DELAYED.
The delay in filling the vacancy upon
the charter commission for St. Paul
has been already too prolonged. We
understand that the members of the
district bench have deferred action
from time to time, owing to the diffi
culty of getting all the judges together,
so as to secure a unanimous selection.
It seems to us that a paint has been
stretched here unnecessarily, since it
is not absolutely necessary that every
member should be present, and any of
those who have been absent from time
to time during the summer recess could I
easily have been reached and their con
currence secured. Now, however, the
cause for procrastination no longer ex
ists, and still the charter commission
is prevented from meeting and organiz
ing and mapping out its work by the
existence of a single unfilled place in
its ranks. The judges are stiil defer
ring action, and the people wait.
We do not need to state again the
importance of having the charter com
mission proceed to its work without
further unnecessary delay. Tbe time is
already short enough for the work that
has to be done. The Minneapolis com
mission has been engaged for months,
and still has plenty to do. If the new
charter is to be framed in time for that
patient and minute investigation, and
that discussion of its terms on the part
of the people, which is the only safe
guard and assurance of wise action,
the commission ought to get to its
work at once. Appreciating fully the
courtesy that has actuated the judges
toward one another and toward the
commission, we have to s.':y that there
are large public interests at stake
which ought now to brush aside all
By all odds the weightiest event in
the histoiy of St. Paul for many a year
! will be the making of this charter.
j It ought not to be hurried, and yet
I there is only just sc much time before
the spring election comes. The judges
should net delay another day in mak- j
j ing the single appointment that holds j
j back all the work, and the members !
i of the commission should not "ncline to
j wait until the whole fifteen can par. i
! ticipate. It is not possible for this
I many business men to attend every •
j session, and there is nothing in the j
law that requires it. The work should j
j be mapped out and assignments made I
I at once, in order that the new docu- j
j ment shall be framed judiciously.
We are well aware of the influences j
; that have been at work, secretly and j
insidiously, in every quarter to prevent ]
the framing and adoption of a new j
charter. We know the interests at the ;
i city hall, which were determined from !
j the beginning that no charter changes :
should be made that would expel a :
single office holder from his easy berth, i
These people have not given up their
idea or relinquished their purpose. Xv- ;
cry day that passes without action is '
a delight tc them, and in each such in- j
i terval they see a possible postponement j
! of the people's hope and the realization j
jof their own selfish desire. In the
name of the people of St. Paul, who ;
want reform in their government, and
are trusting implicitly to the district
judges and the members of the charter
commission, on whom the whole re
sponsibility for any miscarriage must
fall, we ask that the matter of consti
tuting the charter commission, and of
the performance of its work on its part,
be carried to completion at once.

garding the riding of bicycles on the
sidewalks Gf Maryland and Burr

informed the Margaret street police au
thorities that citizens were to be per
mitted the use of these walks. The
difficulty arose over the. prohibitory
amendments of tlie old bicycle oreli
nance, which were not included in the
new bicycle regulations. Judge Orr's
position is based upon the conclusion
that the amendments were repealed by
the passage of the last general ordi

of this ruling, it is said, and an arrest
may be made in order to bring a test

THEY WERE HOUOHED
VENERABLE BISHOP "WHIPPLE
AND HIS COADJUTOR BISHOP
WELCOMED BY CHURCH CLUB
ON THEIR RETURN FROM THE
LAMBETH CONFERENCE IN
THE TRINITY-TIDE MEETING.
Eloquent A<l«!resses by Bishop
/Whipple and Bishop Gilbert—
Justioe Brewer Speaks.
Hearty greeting and an enthusiastic
welcome home from England were ex
tended to Bishops Whipple, of Minne
sota, and his coadjutor Bishop Gilbert,
at the Trinity-tide meeting of the
church club of the diocese of Minne
sota held at the Ryan last night.
Bishop Morrison, of Duluth, was un
fortunately unable to be present.
Covers were set for nearly one hun
dred. Among the guests present were
United States Supreme Court Justice
J. D. Brewer, and United States Cir
cuit Judge A. M. Thayer.
The Minnesota bishops have just re
turned home from the Lambeth con
ference recently held at the Canter
bury cathedral in England. They were
right royally welcomed and in return
they spoke entertainingly and elo
quently of the work accomplished, and
the inspiration that the church has de
rived therefrom. Venerable Bishop
Whipple spoke with a fervor and a
vigor that astonished his hearers. He
related reminiscences of the conference
that proved vastly instructive and sig
nificant in the light of the historical
associations that have made these
gatherings so celebrated. The bishop
greatly interested his audience by read
ing an extract from a private letter
received by him from Wiiliam E. Glad
stone, in which the renowned states
man expressed the hope that the An
glican church would always take pre
cautions to prevent the Archbishop of
Canterbury "from growing into a
Judge R. R. Nelson presided. At his
right sat Bishop Whipple and at his
left Bishop Gilbert. After the menu
had been exhaustively discussed,
Judge Nelson inaugurated what proved
to be the most enjoyable feature of the
church club gathering. Judge Nelson
said it gave him more than usual
pleasure to see at the Trinity tide meet
ing the familiar faces of the Minne
sota bishops and some of the clergy
men who aceomDanied them to the
"Lambeth conference. Judge Nelson
congratulated the bishops on looking so
well and quoted the opening lines of
Goldsmith's "The Travellers" to ex
press his sentiments. Judge Nelson
then introduced the Rt. Rev. Henry
Benjamin Whipple, bishop of Minne
sota. Bishop Whipple looked well — bet
ter and stronger in fact than he has for
BGime years past. In response to the
tribute paid to him as a man and as
the father cf the Minnesota church,
whose children held him in reverent
esteem. Bishop Whipple opened his
address with these words:
"You are always kind and I knew that you
loved me, but I love to have you toll me so.
I have gone in and out among you for thirty
eight years, and Gcd knows that the thought
was nearest my heart that we should reco
gnize that saying of the Savior, 'Love one
Bishop Whipple related incidents that oc
curred on the other side, at the Lambeth
conference. He described the occasion when
he was called upon to preach the sermon
at the 1300 th anniversary of the baptism of
Etholbert. It was an inspiring scene. There
were 1.4C0 choristers in surplices. "CO clergy
men in robts, and an audience of 7,000 people.
Bishop Whipple referred to the memorable
occasion when he officiated at the Church of
St. Saviours. It was in this church that
the bishop of Worcester,, John Rogers ar.d
other martyrs, were condemned to be burned
at the stake. The bishop was asked to preach
the sermon before the University of Cam
bridge. When the bishop looked in the facta
of 1.000 young Englishmen receiving a Chris
tian education, he then knew why God had
placed the English speaking race in the fore
front cf civilization.
Bishop Whipple declared that there was a
new life in the Church of England. At no
time had the church been so active. Said
"A Wesieyan bishop said to me, 'if the
Church of England had d'splaytd such ac
tivity of old. there would have been no Wes
leyan church. Soon, I thank God, we will
be back on our mother's bosom.' " (Ap
The bishop briefly reviewed the his
tory of the Lambeth confernces, begin
ning with the first one held in 1268.
which was founded by Bishrp Selweyn.
He traced the growth of the move
ment. The subjects which came be
fore the last conference all had refer
ence to practical work— net to theolo
gical dogma or ritual. The church of
Jesus Christ would prove its apostolic
character by doing apostolic work?
The first question discussed was pur
ity, then temperance, then the sanctity
of marriage, then social questions.
Bishop Whipple here declared that
the bh'hcps sent by America to repre
sent the country were the peers of any
bishops at the conference.
In conclusion Bishop Whipple said
he would not detain his hearers with
an account of the mission work report
ed to the conference. That he would
reserve for the meeting of the Wo
man's Auxiliary in St. Paul tonight.
The bishop said that it behooved his
hearers to consecrate themselves
anew to the Master's work, and then he
read an extract from a letter he had
received from William E. Gladstone,
which is as follows:
"I hope you will take with yr.u to Amer
ica a satisfactory remeir.berance of the con
ference. We can look for no great resuiU
at present from these gatherings, but their
influence in extending, a spirit of unity must
De great. As I leak back, the condition cf
the Anglican church, as it was in my
youth, I can hardly repress my astonishment
at what Gcd has wrought in our church. I
suppose it is much the same in the United
States. Certainly the position of the arch
bishop of Canterbury is a very great one,
but I hope and believe that precautions will
always be taken against his growing into a
r*iolonged applause followed, and
when it had subsided Judge Nelson in
troduced Bishop M. N. Gilbert.
Bishop Gilbert said he would far
rather sit and listen to an address that
made for histoiy than to speak him
self. Bishop Gilbert paid at the out
set, a graceful tribute to the bishop
of Minnesota, when he said that had
Bishop Whipple been but a junior
bishop, at the Lambert conference, he
would have been listened to with equal
attention. He stood not only for the
love of Jesus Christ, but as the true
representative of American churchman
ship. Any increase of power on the
part of the archbishop of Canterbury,
was viewed with alarm. Bishop Gilbert
paid a tribute to the eloquent speech
of the bishop cf Missouri, and to the
history making-speech of the bishop
Bishop Gilbert said that it was an
inspiration to listen to and look into
the* faces of the men who had periled
their lives for their great cause. It
seemed to him that at that conference,
he looked cut into the larger influence
of God. He saw the church, in the fu
ture rising to its own grand destiny.
He saw no sectarian division. He saw
the prophetic vision that St. John be
held at Patmos.
Bishop Gilbert spoke of the impres
sive service held at Glastonbury with
the long line of mere than 100 bishops
winding through the town. It linked
the history of the past with that of
the present. It brought to mind those .
older days, when Rome did not rule.
Bishop Gilbert referred, in a facetious
vein, to the honor conferred upon him
in placing him on four important com
mittees, and thereby depriving him of
the briefest opportunity cf fishing or
hunting. The English church, Gishop
Gilbert thought, was more benefitted
by the conference than were the Ameri
can or colonial churches. New blood
was injected, and welcomed by the
Bishop Girbert told of his visit to
Ireland and of the condition of the
church there. Roman Catholicism was
almost enthroned there, but he believed
that the Church of Ireland was more
strongly installed there today than it
had been at any time since its dis
Bishop Gilbert spoke enthusiastically
of the home life in England. That
home life was anchored to its religious
principles and therefore the nation
could not degenerate.
Rev. Charles Andrews, of Christ
church, who attended the conference
as the coadjutor bishop's chaplain, re
lated some interesting observations he
had made in England. He was im
pressed with the morality of the Eng
lish people, and marvelled at the little
profanity he had heard in London.
Rev. H. P. Nichols, of St. Mark's
church, Minneapolis, made a brief and
felicitous speech and then Judge Nel
son introduced Justice Brewer, of (he
United States supreme court, "who,"
he said, "is a Congregationalist, but
the church is open to all such."
Justice Brewer admitted that he was
a Congregationalist. but declared that
his sentiments regarding the Apostolic
succession were like those of the wom
an, who, when Bishop Potter asked
her what she thought of it, answered:
"I've got nothin' agin' it." Here Justice
Brewer paid an eloquent tribute to
Bishops Whipple and Gilbert.
Justice Brewer expressed his appro
val of what Bishop Whipple had said
of Christian unity. He was convinced
that there was a rapid tendency in that
direction, and that the nineteenth cen
tury would pass into the history of
Christ's church as one of denomina
tional warfare, butter and severe. But
that spirit was dying out in these later
days of the century, and the twentieth
century would be known as one of
Christian unity. Denominations might
continue to exist, but like the clothes
a man wears, they would form no part
of his life.
Justice Brewer concluded with a face
tious reference to Judge Nelson, who,
he said, had violated his promise not
to call on him for a speech.
"I'll wait," said Justice Brewer, "un
til I have him on the hip, and then,
like Shylock, 'I'll feed fat the ancient
grudge I bear him.' "

The Minnesota Scldiers' Heme and Relief
Fund society is confronted with a distressing
financial situation; the fund bids fair to be
exhausted by midwinter.
The last legislature cut off tho appropria

that institution tc be supported out of the
usual tax levy, which hitherto has been de
voted entirely to the relief fund. f»r the
care of indigent veterans and their families,
who ars not receiving any pension. The
amount raised by this is only about $65 COO,
and now $20,000 cf this must be given to the
home. Aside from this the tax collections
promise to be smaller than last year— so the
society will be "hard up." A circular has
been s'-nt out to the county agents and all
applicants, calling iheir attention to these
facts, and asking them to exercise the great
est care in the distribution of this money
Secretary I. H. B. Beebee. in his report
for the month of September, says that 7<?4

the extent of J3.6C5. Of these three were get
