AX INTERNATIONAL, BtSYBODV.
Mr. John W. Foster, ex-secretary of
state, general international factotum,
special representative of the North
American Commercial company in the
McKinley administration, and secretary
of state for seals, is trying with des
perate zeal to wriggle out of the trap
which he set for Salisbury and into
which he himself has fallen. He wrote
the dispatch to Ambassador Hay of
last May, to which John Sherman's
name was affixed, and he is nOW in
spiring the dispatches sent out from
\\ ;i-^i; ; gton designed to cover up his
ft failure. Ever since he bungled the
presentation of our case before the
Paris tribunal he has been trying to
commit England to a further agree
ment for the preservation of the seals
for the North American Commercial
company. That award settled certain
controversies about jurisdiction and
provided means to prevent the destruc
tion of the seal herds. It also cast the
United States in damages for the il
legal seizure and confiscation of Ca
nadian sealers. The damages have not
been paid, and England quite natural
ly declines any further negotiations
until the bill is paid.
Meantime pelagic sealing has con
tinued to the diminution of the profit of
our seal monopoly. A question of ve
racity arose as to whether this kind of
sealing was not destroying the herds.
The experts differed. The note of May
charged England with bad faith in her
experts. A conference was arranged
for this month of these experts to get
at the facts. Meantime Poster fancied
he could dragoon Salisbury into ne
gotiating further provisions for the
benefit of his client, the seal monopoly,
if he could give this conference of the
experts an international aspect. So
he posted off to Japan and to Russia,
whose coasts are frequented by seals,
and got them to send representatives
to an international convention. Having
obtained their assent, he causes Eng
land to be advised of it, the "bad faith"
dispatch being intended as a lash to
drive her into the trap. The repre
sentatives of the powers would come
authorized to make agreements for joint
action for preserving the seals. But
Salisbury made it very plain In his
note of July 2S that the understanding
did not contemplate any such conven
tion. It was to be merely a conference
of the experts to settle certain disputed
facts preliminary to any further nego
tiations; probably to settle the matter
of '-bad faith."
This puts Mr. Foster in a very mor
tifying hole, and he is trying to wrig
gle out of it. He now claims that Eng
land has backed out at the command
of Canada. He indites a press dis
patch asserting that "this cannot be
too strongly insisted upon." He is con
fronted with an awkward dilemma.
The representatives of Japan and Rus
sia are coming to negotiate an interna
tional agreement relative to seal catch
ing. They have little or no interest in
it, but have assented as a matter of
courtesy to this country, which, with
England, is interested. He also has a
conference of experts on his hands to
ascertain whether his accusation of
bad faith on the part of Salisbury is
correct or not. He wants the confer
ence turned into a convention, and
Sngland says no; one thing at a time.
34r» Foster is. what Prof. Elliott terms
him, a bungler, and is what he has
shown himself to be, an international
busybody. He should subside. The
government should also retire from
this sorry complication in which its
partnership with as rapacious a monop
oly as ever existed has involved it.
All the seals that swim the seas or
mate on the Pribyloff islands are not
.wcrth the international disturbance
that lias been occasioned. They have
brought enough humiliation upon us
already. Let them follow the whales
and the buffalo into oblivion.
LOW OR GEORGE.
Unless all signs fail, the contest in
Greater New York, even at this early
day, has narrowed down to a fight be
tween Seth Low and Henry George.
This is gratifying to every opponent of
the machine in politics, whatever he
may think of the merits of any par
ticular candidate or policy. At least,
neither Mr. Low nor Mr. George is the
puppet of a boss. They are the only
two real candidates in the field, and il
is refreshing to see that the people
understand and appreciate this. How
any one can endure being placed in the
intolerable and humiliating position oc
cupied by Van Wyck and Tracy is in
comprehensible to the self-respecting
man? Each of them wears a collar
as palpably and ostensibly as if he
stood in Cooper union with a circle of
iron padlocked on his neck.
Tracy took his nomination because
Platt told him to, and ait the same time
said he would give it up whenever
Platt ordered him to. Van Wyck stands
in the same relation to Croker. Both
these men were put up for trading
purposes, and for nothing else on
earth. Both of them know it, and they
stand before a municipality of several
million citizens labeled, like figures on
a bargain counter, "This style 98
cents." We do not like either the plat
form on which Mr. George stands or
some of his associates, but we do say
unhesitatingly that it would be far
better for New York city to elect him
mayor, and know that it had an hon
est and well-intentioned, if somewhat
erratic and visionary, chief executive,
than to put into place the mere visible
embodiment of corruption and boodle.
The only apparent objection to Mr.
Low is that his candidacy is too ideal.
It appears to be the general opinion
that democratic government in the
United States has not yet arrived at
a point where the fittest triumphs
merely because of his fitness. If he do
not represent something other than or
additional to that, it is held that thu
people will not vote for him in num
bers sufficient to elect him. That is a
position which has been proved true in
too many of our municipal contests.
The lines have been so sharply drawn
in New York city, however, that the
event there will be awaited with an
interest intense and unique. Every
friend of good government hopes that
all the candidates will remain in the
field, so that the voters may stand up
and be counted. It is less important
to the rest of the country that one
man or another should be elected
mayor of Greater New York than it is
that the plain issue of good govern
ment against bad, and of partisanship
against an honorable independence,
should be fought out in the chief city
of our country and its lesson learned
by the voters.
A great gain has been made already
when it appears that either Low or
George will be the successful man.
and that the men of straw put up by
the bosses to serve their selfish and
corrupt purposes have little support
or hearing. If certain indications are
worth anything, one of these two men
will be the first mayor of Greater New
York. That of itself, by its rebuke
to the two great machines that have
so long combined to the destruction of
republican interests and the despair
of the people, will be a political event
of the flrsit magnitude.
A DESERTED INFANT.
Nobody seems to have humanity
enough to take notice of the inhuman
desertion of the squalling infant call
ed "bimetallism," whose three nurses
have been trotting it around Europe
for inspection and admiration by the
various crowned heads and cabinet
ministers. They have done everything
in their power to secure attention for
it and to so build up its system that
it might some time grow into a lusty
child, and even hope to reach man
hood. They must by this time be about
ready to give up their task in a broken
and contrite spirit. The noise raised
by the British press about the suppos
ed concession made by the Bank of
England to the silver cause has
subsided. Coming now to the practi
cal side of the question, England would
like to know, before she goes further,
just what it is that the United States
and France expect to do.
We think it would puzzle our bi
metallic commission and anybody else
to answer this question categorically.
What do they expect us to do? Do
they purpose that,, if the Bank of Eng
land agrees to hold one-fifth of its re
serve in silver, the United States shall
guarantee free coinage at the ratio of
15^ to 1? What warrant have they
for that? Do they not know that the
approval of any such measure by con
gress or the people is wholly out of
the question? Do they not know, and
does England not know, thajt these
commissioners have no power what
ever except to investigate and report?
They cannot even express the senti
ment of this government in any other
than the vaguest and most general
way; because such sentiment, as far
as it relates to an international agree
ment, has not been declared.
In the meantime, as if to complicate
still further the task of these gen
tlemen, we have word from the In
dian government that it will stand as
a unit against any proposition to re
open the Indian mints to free coinage.
We should think it likely. After that
government had wrestled for years
with the problem of paying in gold
fixed charges out of a revenue received
by it in constantly depreciating silver,
it discovered that the only solution
was to cease free coinage at its mints.
To reverse that action now would be
to plunge the government into the old
difficulties many times multiplied and
aggravated. If, therefore, Great Brit
ain's participation in the bimetallic
plan were to include, as has been stat
ed, the reopening of the Indian mints,
such action would be taken against the
united protest of practically every rep
resentative of the government in India,
and would doubtless lead to the resig
nation of all of them.
It is easy to concoct encouraging dis
patches and to get them sent over the
cable, but the moment that the bi
metallic commissioners begin to make
THE SAINT PAUL GLOBS: SATURDAY, OCTOBER 9, 1897*
practical adjustments, the impossibility
Of accomplishment by them discloses
itself. For the present, as far as the
rest of the world is concerned, the bi
metallic infant Is a deserted child,
without home or comfort, or prospect
of nourishment enough to preserve its
precarious and struggling existence.
CAUGHT IN THEIR OWN TRAP.
When the president returned from
his visit to Lenox and Mr. Plunkett,
he was met at the Washington depot
by a large crowd gathered to receive
him, on whom, it was stated, he smiled
pleasantly. What was not said, but
what it is perfectly safe to assume, is
that the crowd was composed of the
expectant ones who are still waiting
for a job, living on the boarding-house
keepers and letting these live on hope.
The president gave them only a pleas
ant smile when their souls are yearn
ing for a pleasant berth and their void
pocketbooks yawning for its monthly
stipend. All, it may be also safely as
sumed, were members of the Anti-
Civil Service Reform association that
gathered under its wings the disap
pointed, the dejected and the despair
ing, and concocted deep, dark plans
for the overthrow of the barrier that
reared its unscalable walls between
them and the heaven of a soft berth
and a snug salary.
But with these there is added grief
today, and among congressmen there
will be gnashing of teeth when they
get again in Washington to devise
ways and means of increasing the na
tional excess of expenditures over in
come, while reversing the process for
their individual selves. For they will
find that, in trying to tie up that ter
rible Morton, they have tied also their
own beloved Wilson; and that, by the
law they themselves enacted, the lat
ter will have to follow the former in
having the seeds he was forced to buy
packed by those of whom he buys,
leaving to congressmen the arduous
task of addressing the packages to
their favored constituents. The two
or three hundred persons who, in for
mer years, were profitably employed
by the agricultural department in fill
ing the little packets from the sup
plies bought and delivered in barrels,
bags and sacks, are no longer needed.
The bill passed at the latest session
stupidly followed the phraseology of
the act under which Morton found
means to dispense with all that work
and throw it back upon those who sold
the seeds. And the comptroller of the
treasury advises Secretary Wilson
that he can buy seeds, but he cannot
employ persons to put them up or con
tract with some one to do it. He tells
the secretary that congress appropri
ated $130,000 for the purpose of buying
seeds and that "half of it cannot be
used in payment of personal services
in distributing the seeds." We can
imagine the chagrin of the secretary,
but our imagination is too restricted In
its object lens adequately to compre
hend the grief of the unemployed and
the rage of the self-entrapped con
JERRY NEVER SAID IT.
Mr. Finch, editor of the La Crosse
Republican and Leader, is appointed
minister to Uruguay and Paraguay,
and it is authoritatively stated that he
will accept. It is seventeen years now
since Garfield tendered this appoint
ment to Uncle Jerry Rusk. Jerry had
become something of a power in Wis
consin politics, and had been mention
ed for several good things whenever
the farmers became cantankerous and
must be placated, for Jerry was some
thing of a farmer himself. We believe
that at that time he had his eye "sot"
on a cabinet position, the agricultural
department, or something equally good.
Anyway, Jerry was in high dudgeon
when the tender came, and it was said
that he asked, with bucolic bluntness,
where in or out of hades were Uruguay
This yarn passed muster for years,
but now comes the editor of the La
Crosse Chronicle and says that Jerry
never said it, but that it was Uncle
Philetus Sawyer, then in the senate,
who turned to Senator Cameron when
the nomination was read and put the
profanely emphatic inquiry. Mr.
Usher's informant was Senator Cam
eron. So another plume is plucked
from Uncle Jerry's hat. Next we will
have some one proving that he never
said: "I seen my duty and done it."

at Somerset, Wis., for the Apple River Power
company, a concern recently organized for
j the purpose of utilizing the large amount of

and will carry a large volume of water. The
machinery is now being put in place, and

of New Richmond, is president and general
manager of the company, which is capitalized
for $50,000. As soon as possible electric lights
will be furnished for the village of New Rich
mond, and power will also be furnished. They
also contemplate running their lines to Still

SOFT COAL FAMINE.
Milwaukee Threatened With a
Shortage in Its Supply.
MILWAUKEE, Oct. B.— Milwaukee is
threatened with a soft coal famine. In
order to meet present contracts, local
dealers have begun to borrow from
each other with promise of returning
the coal when their individual supplies
come in. Official reports from all tht
coal yards in the city, backed up by
freight bills, show the receipts for the
year ending Oct. 1, to have been 300,000
tons. The amount required to supply
the trade, rated on last year's basis,
is 800,000 tons. This leaves 500,000 tons
to be landed here during the next two
months, when the season of naviga

50 GOT l|i HISTORY
SUPT. CURTIS SATS NEW HIGH
SCHOOL STUDY COURSE] DOES
NOT SLUR IT.
REALLY MORE THAN BEFORE*
"WHEN "WORK IN LITERATURE,
POLITICAL ECONOMY AND KIN
DRED LINES IS CONSIDERED.
HIS ARRANGEMENT APPROVED.
Committee Appointed to Pass Upon
It Yesterday Decided to Rec
ommend Its Adoption.
School Inspectors May and Wilkes,
who were appointed by the board, at
its meeting Wednesday, with Supt.Cur
tis, to confer in regard to the course
of study for the high school, arranged
by Supt. Curtis and presented at the
board meeting, met yesterday in ex
ecutive session, and after about two
hours' deliberation announced that
Supt. Curtis' arrangement had met
with the approval of the committee.
The objections to the arrangement,
which, however, seem to have been
overcome, were twofold. One was
that there should be some arithmetic
in the final course year, to freshen up
the students in the most practical, per
haps, of all their studies, and the oth
er, that the study of history was being
sacrificed to less important matters in
the new course.
Supt. Curtis, however, insisted that
as far as the last named objection was
concerned, there was more history, if
anything, rather than less, than in the
old course of study. He showed that
history was constantly before the pu
pils in the general course from first to
last. Ancient history and English lit
erature both occupied the first year,
while English literature, with its inci
dental instruction in history, contin
ued through the second year. The old
schedule ran "history and reading"
through both years, half-time each.
Supt. Curtis considers the new plan
better. The second year biology is in
troduced, animal one term, plant the
other, in order that science may not
be overlooked. The third year histori
cal instruction is not only looked after
directly with the study of English his
tory, the first term, and United States
history the second, but in rhetoric and
American literature for the same
terms there is opportunity for further
work along closely associated lines.
While the direct study of history is
absent from the fourth year, in Eng
lish literature, which runs through the
whole year, and in political economy,
which takes the second term, Supt.
Curtis insists that abundant opportun
ity is afforded for improvement in his-

caused by heart failure. Today an
anonymous communication received at
the coroner's office intimated that
there was something suspicious about
the woman's death. A deputy coroner
sent to make an investigation found
that Mrs. Moore had died from a stab
wound in the abdomen, the iliac artery
being severed. The neighbors say that
Moore was in the habit of beating his
wife. Moore denies this and. says that
his wife was a habitual drunkard, and
that on Tuesday night she was discov

lot near their home. Some time after
she had been taken home he says she
was found dead with a carving knife
on the floor by her side.

STATE'S RIGHT IS DENIED.
Ownership olf School Sections on
Chlppewa Land* in Question.
WASHINGTON, Oct. B.— Land Com
missioner Hermann was not quite sure
of the status of the question as to
whether the state of Minnesota is en
titled to the school sections on the
Chlppewa reservation when questioned
about the matter. His impression was
that it was pending before the secre
tary at this time, and in discussing
State Auditor Dunn's determination to
sell the lumber on one section, he said:
"The government would not take any
steps to prevent the sale of timber by
the auditor. Such sale would be a mere
idle act and would not call for inter
vention by the government. The gov
ernment would step in, however,
should the purchaser attempt to re
move the timber or do any other in
jury to the property, they will lay
themselves liable to prosecution, as
timber depredators or trespassers.
"It is an open question with me
whether the state is entitled "to the
school lands on the Chippewa reserva
tion even though these lands have
been put up for sale or entry; my judg
ment is that the question is now pend
ing before the secretary, but I cannot
say as to that until after I have had
a chance to look up the record.
"I do not care to discuss the matter
any further at present because it has
not been called to my attention official
ly." Assistant Attorney General for
the Interior Department Vandeventor
is absent on his vacation, so that no
information can be had as to whether
the question of the ownership of the
school sections is now pending in his
office. He decides all questions of law,
and if the matter is before him it is
locked up in his desk.

MAY END SCORCHING.
London Machinist Invents Device to
Rejjnlnte the Wheel's Speed.
At length something has been in
vented which may stop the abomina
ble practice of bicyclists in "scorch
ing." It is a contrivance designed by
John Clements, of London, and wheji
attached to the wheel will tell exactly
how fast a wheel is going.
The contrivance is simplicity itself.
It consists of a bell affixed to the front
wheel of the machine, set to a particu
lar speed, and the moment this is at
tained the action of a couple of cog
wheels starts the bell ringing, and this
will continue to tinkle until the rate
of speed is reduced. The arrangement
can be set to any speed, but it cannot
afterward be altered.
"My idea," said Mr. Clements, "is to
have a uniform rate of sweed ,say ten
miles an hour. This would be prefera
ble to having one at ten, another at
twelve, and another, perhaps, at four
teen miles an hour. The moment the
ten-mile rate is attained the bell be
comes an alarm, but the sound is not
sufficient to prove a nuisance to the
"Does it indicate the precise rate at
which a machine is traveling, assum
ing the speed exceeds the ten miles an
"No. It simply indicates by the ring
ing of the bell that the ten miles is
attained, and, if necessary, all the
rider has to do is to reduce the rate."
The position of the bell Is such that
it is tteyond the control of the person
on the machine. Tts recommendations
are that it is simple, strong, not likely
to get out of order, can be produced
very cheaply, and should settle effect
ively the everlasting disputes between
policemen and magistrates and cyclists
as to the danger or the reverse of the
rider's rate of speed.
ANCIENT GOLD MINING.
How It Was Done by Old-Time
Egyptians and Scythians.
Gold was probably the first metal ob
served and collected, because of the in
stinctive understanding of it? intrinsic
value. About it superstitions grew, re
ligious and ceremonious rites, and
strange crimes were committed for its
possession in the days when it was be
lieved that it was of such stuff that
the sun itself was made and the halls
of Valhalla paved. Rock paintings and
carvings in Egyptian tombs earlier
than the days of Joseph indicate the
operation of washing auriferous sand,
and a subsequent melting in furnaces
by the aid of blow-pipes.
Less than twenty years ago the old
mines of Nubna, so graphically de
scribed by Diodorus, were rediscovered
on the shores of the Red sea, together
with a line of ancient wells across the
desert; the underground workings
where ore veins had been followed with
the pick, the rude cupelling furnaces
for assaying, picks, oil lamps, stone
mills, mortars and pestles, inclined
washing tables of stone, crucibles and
restoring furnaces of burned tile, by
which the entire process could be trac
ed. Here slaves and hapless prisoners
of war exchanged their life blood for
glittering dust to fill the trea-suri.s of
their captors. In India and Asia Minor
the powdered ore was wash down over
smooth, sloping rocks, and gold caught
in the fleeces of sheepskins sunk in the
stream. It was literally a golden fleece
that Jason brought back from the Cau
Further north, and following the
eastern foothills of Mount Ararat to
the southern slopes of the Ural moun
tains in Russian Siberia, where last
year millions were taken out of the old
mines, the ancient Scythians broke up
rock and gravel with copper imple
ments, scraped out the glittering dust
and nuggets with the fangs of wild
boars, and carried their gain away in
bags of leather. All through this re
gion miners of today know that one of
the chief dangers to be avoided are the
Scythian pits, sixty feet deep in the
gravel, and shaped like a well. The
remains of thousands of small furnaces
of burned clay testify to the long pe
riod over which the workings of the
mines extended.— Modern Machinery.

Brother-in-Law of the Preaident at
the Head of the Revolt
SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 8 — Tha
steamer City of Para arrived today
from Centra] American ports bringing
the latest news of the revolution in
Guatemala, prior to the receipt of the
dispatches, telling of the recapture of
Quezaltenango by the government
forces. While those on board had not
heard of the retaking of Quezaltenan
go, they were not inclined to accept the
news, as they say Barrios maintained'
a strict censorship over both press and
telegraph. Shortly before the City of
Para left San Jose, ten days ago, a con
ference of the American, English and
French consuls was held as the result
of which they waited on President Bar
rios and asked for information as to
the use he proposed to make of the
steamer City of Panama, informing him
that it was currently rumored that ha
intended to leave the country. Barrios
stated that he proposed to use the ves
sjl for the transportation of troops and
had no intention of abandoning his fol
lowers. On Sept. 29, Morales issued a r
proclamation throughout the City of
Guatemala, offering to allow Barrios to
escape, in the hope of avoiding further
bloodshed, but the City of Para sailed
before Barrios' response was made pub
Consul General Carrillo today re
ceived a dispatch to the effect that the
revolution was at an end and that
Barrios was again in complete control
of the situation, which was confirmed
later by several private cables to
prominent business men who have in
terests in Guatemala.
Isidor Schwartz, of the firm of
Schwartz Bros., the mercantile agents
of the Guatemala government, in an
interview said: "As a matter of fact
the late revolution in Guatemala was
led by Samuel Fuemtes, brother-in
law of Gen. Barrios, and not Prospero
Morales, as the world has been made
to believe. Fuestos was the father of
the revolution, but pushed Morales to
the front as his commanding general. "
As I have always argued, the better
classes were behind Barrios, and with
a well organized and otherwise superior
military force, has not been long in
putting to rout his political enemies.
I regard Barrios' victory as a most
complete one, and predict that peace
will be entirely restored within a few
hours, for many peopie are for peace
and are satisfied with the Barrios ad
ministration, notwithstanding all re
ports to the contrary that have been

\ Soil Which lliih the Staying; Qual
ities of Glue.
H. M. Parchon and Henry Klein
have returned from t trip to Cascade
county, says a writer In the Helena
Independent. Erorytbißg went well
on the trip out. but returning Uvy en
countered a heavy thunderstorm with
a fall of rain, and in a T"w minutes
the road was made almost impassable
The soil is thick clay, of the order
known in some localities as gumbo,
and when a little water comes in con
tact with it a substance not unlike
glue is the result. The wheels soon
become so weighted with the stuff that
travel in the wagon was impossible,
and it was resolved to take chances
afoot There is a peculiarity about
gumbo that it sticks like fly-paper to
everything that one doesnt want it to
remain attached to, and it somehow
won't stick to the ground long enough
to step out of it. The members of the
party first tried tiptoeing along. Grad
ually the sticky substance accumulated
under the balls of their feet until thpy
were lifted far from the surface of the
ground, and still it accumulated more
and more. Gumbo is not as light as
some other substances, either. Ea<h
foot that a pedestrian raises from the
ground adds several pounds to his bur
den of woe. There is a limit to a man's
carrying capacity. When he has ac
quired a stilt on each foot that weighs
125 pounds or so he feels like stopping i,
to rest or rid himself of the burden,
Mr. Parchen was the first, it is said,
to try to kick himself loose from his
appendage of mud. Poising [limscif
on one heavily iaden foot, he kicked
out with the other with all his might.
But one cant kick gumbo from his
shoes. The stuff has been known to
resist the efforts of the pick. Mr. Par
chen had not calculated on that. When
he kicked the momentum of the heavy
weight carried him forward on that
foot, and to save himself and recover
his balance he was forced to thrust
his other foot forward with considera
ble vehemence. That foot, too, was
heavily laden with the same sort of
mud, and the momentum of it had a
similar effect. As each foot became
heavier by the accumulated weight of
gumbo, each other foot became heav
ier, too, so that the increasing brake
upon the pedestrians speed was com
pensated for by the increasing momen
tum furnished. The accumulation has
grown to alarming figures, if expressed
in pounds, and Mr. Parchen encoun
tered an up-grade and was saved. Ho
secured implements fitted for the pur
pose and managed to scrape off the
bottom of his shoes, making a nice
new surface for more mud to cling to.
The experiences of the other mem
bers of the party were similar. They
all plodded along the line of the Great
Falls & Canada railway into the city,
which they reached at midnight. Their
horses had been turned loose, and they
reached home late with balls of mud
clinging to their tails as big as foot
balls and smaller spheres of mud hang
ing pendent from their manes. Mr.
"Woods took a hunting dog with him,
and the animal lay down in the mud
to roll. So much of it clung to her
that it wae with difficulty that she
dragged herself into the city.
