HOT FOR CLOR\ OR REVENGE DOES UNCLE SAM DEMAND FREE CUBA Rev. Maurice D. i:«l\vard». Pastor of the Dayton Avenue Presbyterian < Imreli. Spenks to Ills Cou»re»;t tioki of the Probable "War With Spain Says the I nited States Is JiiNtiiitMt in Iniervenliiß. Rev. Maurice D. Edwarde, pastor of tin- Dayton Avenue Presbyterian church, spoke to his congregation yes terday of the pending controversy be tween the United Suites and Spain. In part he said: We are In the midst of a grave national i-nr-is. Tha question ot peace or wax trembles j In the balance. Our congress, with practical I unanimity, teems determined to lake a firm I stand for Cuban Independence. Whether its action be right or wrong, wise or in. wise, the die Is about to be cast, the issue is (airly and distinctly joined. It de pends upon Spain whether the result be war or peace, tfiic may yield to our deruaud3 and without a struggle, convinced of the hop< lessoeas of contending against us In view oi her comparative weakness in men and re- '.ir, ■.'.■;, add she may boidly accept our dec laration as a gauge of battle and appeal to the arbitrament ot the swoid. The former course Spain is not likely to t.iki. Few expect her to give up Cuba with out a struggle, or at least a show of re sistance. She has too much at stake in ter ritory and prestige, and there lingers too Hiudi of the old Castilian pride to permit her to surrender without an effort at least in tave the fair possession. While still pray ing, therefore, that peace may prevail, pre- | pare and plan for war. "We all of us as [ patriots and Christians dep'.ore, I hope, tho i issue, and hope the strife may yet be averted. We are a peace-loving nation. We have no national antipathies, no memory M wrongs to bo avenged or righted. We are envious of no country's prosperity, nor do wo covet any other country's terri tory. Outside the loss of the Maine, which in lt can be readily settled without war, we have no controversy of our own even with . During an entire national existence ye have livi J at peace with the earth. What dlfference there has been betwtcu us has been amicably settled. War is always to be dreaded, and is only to be resorted to I wry other measure of settlement, the sacrifice of honor and rar.k, has 'xhausted. : I of our late war to me a few days since: •■Thirty-six years ago yesterday 1 w s on the battl. Held of Shiloh. Between young nun wearing the blue _■•.■.> w re buried in soldiers' graves. What bopes wen buried there also. What - and breaking hearts that scene meant in thousands of distant homes from the gulf to the great lakes." What a monster war is. Well has Gen. aan said, 'War is hell." Think not oi the dt ad and dying, but the maimed and suffering, the desolated country, the de struction of property, tho passions arousc-d, the hatred engendered, the too frequent and savagery aroused. War is always somebody's crime. If it be an offense that must needs come, woe be to him by whom the offense cometh. It behooves any people therefore before either easting down tir taking up the gauge of battle to be sure that It is in the right. As Mr. Lincoln once caW: "Our prayers should be not that God would be on our side, but that we might be on Gcd's side, for God's side is always right. If we are to have war it is of the utmost im- I tnce to be en God's side of the conflict." We must have reasons for cur course, which shall not only justify us in the yes of the wi :l«i that is of a comparatively small im portance, but such as will justify us before hrons of God. Nations as well as indi viduals. God judges. Nations as well as In dividuals must act in obedience to His law. The moral obligation to live the sermon on the mount is. just as binding on us, as a country, as it is upon us as individual Christians. We can never, therefore, get rid of a moral responsibility by association or corporate ac tion. That which is wrong for a single indi vidual to do does not become right because a thousand or 70,000,000 are associated in the doing. Ethics are the same everywhere. There may be differences of application, but f the essential principles and obligation. What may be the questions now involved as related to international law. whether we have the right under any application of its principles to interfere to stop the strife in Cuba, and if so, how we can thus inter- j whether or not also such intervention I can be accomplished in harmony with the precedents cf our own national history and j traditional policies: whether intervention is the wise and prudent course to pursue in View cf the circumstances and of the future.. | All these and similar questions m»t be left to others to dis uss and d:c!de. Tiie people, as such, have nothing to do with them. We shall therefore consider the pres ent crisis only from the ethical standpoint. and ask whether under the law of God we have any Justification In the course which congress and the give:nment propose taking. It is n.,t necessary to raise tho questijn whether war is ever justifiable under the Christian system. One can scarcely read the Bible without admitting that circumstances ■w II and do arise whe;e war has the divine Function. To resis; wrong and oppression, to defend national liberty and sovereignty it Is right and even obligatory to take up aim;. \\'ar of aggression or for spoils, war for the Foke of natl:nal g'.ory and prestige, war for tho promotion of selfish interests or mere love ■ ; strife, war for vengiancs or oppression is always and altogether wicked and damnable. Those who thus take the sword should per ish by the sword. All the great wars In which our nation has engaged, with a single possi ble exception, have been Justifiable wars. The War of Independence was fought in the Interests of liberty and of humanity. God's blessing could be sought and was sought for l's suce?ss, ard in the filial victory achieved the divine approval was universally recog nized. The brief hostilities with France noar lose of the last century and tne W;ar with Great Britain in 1812 were of a similar char acter. In neither case were we the aggres sors, but the struggle was entered upon sole ly to resist encroachments and demands which could not be tolerated by any free peoDle. We can scarcely say as much for the war With Mexico. That was largely a scheme to gain additional slave territory. The bound pry question involved might easily have been settled by peaceable means, if it had not been the policy of the dtminant political party to be aggressive for ulterior end 3. Our great < . il war was of a different character. On the part of the North it was primarily to The buyers of today must be our yearly patrons, and there is only one way to retain them— full, generous value every time.

These causes gave the stiuggle, from our point of view, a moral Jus tification, so that, as Mr. Lincoln said, "VVs all felt that It waa God's war." In our foreign wars we have never been the aggressor, save, possibly. In the one in stance named. We have fought to gain no nation's territory, to curtail no nation's lib erty, to humiliate no nation's prldo or sat isfy no national grudge. If war now occurs, can it be Justified on ethical grounds? Will it be a conflict in which we can confidently expect divine ap prcval and blessing, as we have in previous contests. The answer to these questions depends chiefly upon two things: First, our motives and alma In entering upon the conflict; and, second, tho necessity of a conflict as the only moans of achiev ing our objects. What are our motives and alms? Why do we propose to intervene In Cuba, even at the expense of war? Only two reasons of real Importance are given, one of which is the loss of the Maine. That was a treacherous deed. As a crime, an act of wholesale murder, we can justly insist that its perpetrators be apprehended, jif possible, and properly punished. But _lt I was more than murder. It was an effenso | of the most serious character against us as a nation. The deed was done in a Spanish port. Our ship was on a friendly visit. She was moored I where a government official had placed hr . The sentiment of the people, and especially the official class, was known to be intmsely hostile to the flag which that vessel carried, yet no precautions were taken to secure her safety. Whether this omission was owing to an absence of apprehension of harm or to indifference or to thoughtlessness, the neglect was criminal, and Spain cannot escape moral responsibility for the result. This, in itself, however, should not and would not cause war. Were it the only ques tion at issue it would doubtless be quit kly settled without an appeal to arms. Secondly, and the graver and larger ques tion is that of terminating the barbarous and I long-continued civil war in Cuba. The condi tion of affairs there is and has been, as our I president says, "Intolerable." Savagery r.nl horrible butchery have for three years de vastated the island. Hundreds of thousands of women and children have perished by the sword and slow starvation. In the sacred name of humanity our gov ernment proposes to interfere to stop these atrocities and er.d these miseries. Is it right to do this? Can any one on moral grounds question that right? Is it not our duty as a nation to terminate this condition of affal:s if we can? We have criticised the powers ot Eunpe j for allowing the brutal Turk to exterminate the Armenians by fire and sword. Shall we allow at our own gates a similar ] tragedy and lift no hand to prevent it, or only express mild protest or expostulation? Ir. is said we have no right to interfere in the Internal affairs of another anil frie'id'.v j nation. True, in all ordinary circumstances, I but not true in such circumstances a.-: prevail in Cuba. Ctrtainly, if ever it was right and obl'g atory to interfere to save a people from ex- | termination, that duty Is thrust upon us. | Cuba is our near neighbor; our interests ero largely centered there. Many uf our sub jecis reside there. Upon no other power rests this responsibility as it does upon ourselves. There is no government on this Western hemisphere except our own able to Interfere with effect. If any other nation this fide of the ocean should make the attempt, it would not only certainly mean war, but in- I tervention would end in failure. At least, success would only be won by a prolonged conflict, and probably there would be very few Cubans to set free when it was ended. We alone can intervene speedily and effec tively. Let us hope that this can b-a done without war. or at least with no more than a brief resistance to save the pride of the Spanish people. If the duty of intervention rests upon any nation, it rests upon us. The motives now actuating us are not those of national ambition aud apgrar.due ment. We are acting from no desire for glory or conquest or revenge. We do not covet Spain's territory, nor have we any de sire to cripple or degrade or humiliate her. NEW ORGAN DEDICATED. Churi-li of St. Vincent df Paul Hoars Its Xe-,v Instrument in Cojioert for tlie Firs* Time. The Church of St. Vincent de Paul, at Vir ginia and Blair stieets. i 3 almost ready for the formal dedication, which will take place on Sunday, May 8.

WRITES FROM YAKUTAT BAY ST. PAUL GOLD SEEKER SENDS A MESSAGE HOME Tolls of the Terrible Experience of the Members of the Party Abonril ii Snlliiifi Vessel, Wlili-li Conveyed Them From Seattle to the Alunknu Coast ilhiiiklii They Were Doomed to Death. J. Schneldler Jr., of 747 Olive street, received the following' letter from his father, J. G. F. Schneldler, who In com pany with a nunrber of St. Paulltos left here for Alaska Fel>. 5: "Yakutat Mission, March 12, 1898. "To the Folks at Home: "On Friday, March 11, at 5:30 p. m., we arrived at Yakutat bay, but could not make the harbor" until Monday, 6:30 p. m. We anchored about 1,500 feet from shore at the mission on Monday. There are about 200 Indians here, who commenced to come on board as soon as they sighted us, In little canoes, rather dug-outs, which are made of large hewed redwood logs. From three to six Indians were In each canoe, pad dling like good fellows. "In one canoe were a man and four boys, from six to fifteen years of age, barefooted and no caps on, and only two thin shirts. They offered us moc casins and trinkets for sale. They wanted to see Dr. Pine's pony. They had never seen a horse before, this be ing the first to come to this part of the country. (Most of us were seasick, but all are well again. "Our other pardner is Carl Fierhelm, from Oregon, a rancher and a good, stout fellow, and, if it had not been for him, our poor dogs would have suf fered terribly, as Frank, myself and the others of our party were not lit to attend to them properly. Out of twenty-five we only lost one dog, Kar do, and he was not well after we left Seattle. The rest are in good shape. "Now we are waiting for the arrival of the tug-, which will take us fifty miles farther to Disenchantment bay. From there we have to go over the glacier, along the Alaskan river, will pass Mount Elias on the left, going through a corner of the Northwestern territory; then we will go either on the Chittyua river up the Copper, or over the Scoloi pass to the headquarters of the Copper and down the river, where we will stop and make our prospecting. "A couple of Indians came back from the glacier and said It is in fine con dition; no cracks in it. which will save many extra miles of travel. These Tn dians have taken in some parties vr'ho have come from Copper river, Valdes pass and Orca, where there is no get ting through. Many people are lying there since last fall, and cannot get over the glacier. There is too much snow. It looks as if our road will be well traveled this season. On the 7th or Sth of April the regular mail serv ice will be opened from Seattle here and up the coast; so you can address all mail to Yakutat Mission, Yakutat Bay, Alaska. "We will leave our names here. There are two stores here. One is run by a Scandinavian and one by an American. R. W. Beesley, and we will make some arrangements with him for our mail. Both stores here are all sold out, as they have had no supply in since fall, i The Indians fish and hunt for a living- ! and are peaceful people. Cod, herring, ! halibut and smelt are abundant. We i are in great hopes; they even find gold j here in the sands on the beach, but in no great amounts. Still some people are working at it, and doing quite well "Now, about .our trip; we had a ter rible experience, and all thanked God when we got into the bay. Some of us have been on the seas, but none have ever seen the like of our past ex periences. We shall never go on a sailing vessel, especially the way we were packed. In the first place, there were too many passengers, ninety-eight all told, and there was too big a load freight, of which about fifteen tons were stored on the top of the deck cabin, which made the vessel topheavy, I and the boat rolled from side to side.' I Otherwise the boat was staunch and a good sailor. But who can sail if there is no wind, and make headway with adverse winds. There was no chance, ; however, for us to charter a gold steamer to go up here, as nothing but sailing vessels make this port. "We started out from Seattle on Feb. 23, at 5:30 p. m., made Port Angeles, where we laid Sunday. On Monday we went fifteen miles. So we went some times ahead and then back again We saw the mountains behind Sitka five different times. Then on Monday, March 7, a storm overtook us, and we scudded along at the rate of forty miles an hour. It was a wonder we lived through this blast. The waves rolled over the boat, and at night all the pas sengers were obliged to leave the deck cabin, and it looked as if the deck cabin and everything would go overboard. "All deck passengers and baggage were put in the hold. Mf bunk was one of the lowest in the hold, and was under water for three days. Every thing was wet, and for three days no cooking could be done. Hard tack and cold tea constituted the bill of fare. Then on the 10th we experienced an other terrible storm, but calm settled by sunset. Now it is all over. Most all of us were alarmed at times, think ing that we had seen the last and would go down to a watery grave. Our cap tain had too much liquor on board and had the tremors for three days. Thanks to the first mate, who was an able sai lor, we escaped death. "During the first storm Dr. Pine's pony was driven out of its stall, and in attempting to rescue the animal the doctor was almost washed overboard If it had not been for the colored cook who caught the doctor in time we would have seen the last of him. One of the sailors was blown overboard bui was saved. "March 14. All the dogs of Horman's party, the Gopher Mining Company of St. Paul, were taken ashore in a scow today, but they had terrible fights with the native dogs, so I decided to keep mine on board. "About sixty miles to the north of us lies the largest glacier in the world so far known. Mount Mennier. Mount Elias and Mount Logan form a grand sight. They only seem to be from eight to ten miles off, but in reality they are some hundred miles away. The morning sunrise here is grand, and I cannot describe It to you in this let ter, but will try and tell you all about it upon my return home. "A young fellow from Boston named D. L. Bloch, twenty-one years of age and a foolhardy young man, yesterday took a boat about 10 o'clock and went for a row, as everybody thoug-ht. The first thing we knew, he was out of sight, and has not returned by night. He was In his shirt sleeves. It was growing dark, and the breakers be came worse. Search was made for him in vain all night by two parties. About 2 o'clock In the afternoon an Indian reported that he had found the Boston man on a n island, more dead than alive. His boat had been broken, to slivers from the beating of the surf, and the fellow was in a fren zied condition. But this will act as a good warning to the rest of the boys to stay with the party. "March 17. We received word today that the coast inspector is coming in in a few days, and tha 1 : he will make arrangements with us by which we may be able to have mail sent in, es pecially to our party here. Everybody is getting anxious for the tug, and it looks suspicious, as the delay has been long, but I think the repairs en th* tug at Seattle took longer than ex pected." Young Mr. Schneidler received the following letter from Dr. D. T. Thomp son, of Ballard, Wash., explaining the tug's delay: "SITKA, March 25.— After being out twenity-four hours, the boiler on our tug sprung a leak, and we lay at the mercy of the sea for two days. After the leak was repaired and we started again, a storm came up and the en gine played out, but we were sheltered by a few Islands, with no thanks to the revenue Inspectors at Seattle that we were not lost, it's a fact that there must be some bribery going on to allow boats to go out in the condition that this boat has gone. No wonder the Corrlnne was foundered and the Clara Nevada wrecked. It Is my "belief that people leaving for Alaska should make personal Investigation of the merits of their boats before starting." ANOTHER ONE HEARD FROM. John A. DavidMon Write* Hl* Rela tives In St. Paul. Relatives of Juhn A. Davidson and Robert Kttlunder. who left Seattle oK the steamer Blakely March 1, with the St. Paul company of gold seekers headed by John Horman and Dr. Pine, have received letters stating that the Blakely has safely arrived at Ya kutak Bay, on the Alaskan coast. The en tire party is In good health and hopeful of soon reaching the inland gold fields. The Blakely had a rough trip from Seattle and encountered several heavy storms, but escaped without accident. The steamer has been at Yakutak Bay since March 12, wait ing for a tow boat. The letters received in bt. Paul were dated March 1. MIDSUMMER EXPOSITION. Members of Northwestern Manufac turers' I iiion iiil.liiK h Lively In terest In the Enterprise. Plans for the midsummer Industrial expo sition of the Northwestern Manufacturers" union arc taking shape and It promises to be one of the most important enterprises of Its kind ever held In this section of the country. Every member of the union to whom tihe sub ject has been broached has entered heartily into the Idea and they have all promised to do their utmost to make it a success. It is proposed to have exhibits of plaster casts, stained glass, mirror beveling, rugs, ; rattan chairs, brooms and brushes, boots and shoes, harness-making, wood carving and fret work, upholstery, mattrees and pillow-making, wheel-making, paint grinding, water bottling, bicycles, pottery, bookbinding, engraving, stereotyping, brass moulding, iron shutter making, and metal windows, tinware, cigar making, tobacco cutting, typesetting by machinery, cracker making, biscuit mak ing, and other lines of work In operation at the fair. Market hall will be filled with machinery in motion. The street railway company will sup ply power for the machinery without charge to the exhibitors. It is also proposed to close the Market place and to erect over It a large shed, for fair bocths. It is thought that an attractive feature of the exposition would be a congress of all nations in the market place, where representatives of the different na tionalities could masquerade in their native costumes and hold danc&s and festivals char acteristic of foreign countries. It is believed the board of public works will grant the free use of the entire building for the purpose of the exposition. It Is intended that admission to the exposition shall be free. PASSED THROUGH ST. PAUL. Charles F. Adams, a Boston Multi millionaire, on His Way to Port lnnd, Oreg'om. Charles Francis Adams, of Boston, passed through St. Paul yesterday on his way tJ the Pacific coast, leaving this city on the Northern Pacific overland. S. L. Abbott, a son-in-law of Mr. Adams, accompanied the latter. Mr. Adams Is a member of the wealthy Adams family which has accumulated n1 l ions and is considered one of the richest families in the United States. He was for merly president of the Union Pacific, and is heavily interested in prominent concerns in all parts of the country. He Is en route for Portland, Or., where he has large inter ests. While in St. Paul the Boston capitalist and Mr. Abbott were the guests of C. \V. Benson, of the Chicago Great Western railway: An early lunch was served to a party consisting of Mr. Adams, Mr. Abbott, Mr. Benson and A. B. Stickney, after which the gpntlemen boarded a special Great Western train and v/ere taken to the South St. Paul stockya:d3. Mr. Adams is one of the owners of the Kan sas City stockyards, and he took great pleas ure in Inspecting the South St. Paul yards, expressing himself as beiug greatly impresssd by them. The special returned in time to enable Mr. Adams and Mr. Abbott to catch the Northern Pacific. POLITICS LEADS TO~BLOWS7 IMilliji O'Reilly and Andy Flaherty Hold an Animated Discussion Over the Aldermanlc Situation. Philip O'Reilly, a stonemason, living at 221 East Water street, and Andy Flaherty, living at Robertson and Water street, had a disagreement about the aldermanic situation in the Sixth ward -last evening, which cul minated in a savage fight, in which OR Illy received a severe cut in the head and a bfidly bruised face. The fight occurred at State and FalrfleM streets. O'Reilly championed the cause of Candidate Baer, and Flaherty declared him self for Aid. Bell. Argument failed to changa the views of either, and Mr. Flaherty Is i\ leged to have suddenly planted his fist on O'Reilly's face. O'Reilly was no more in favor of Aid. Bell serving a second term after the Impact of Flaherty's fist, and pro ceeded to use some of the same kind of argu ment in favor of Mr. Baer. Both men clinched and for five minutes those who had gathered about the principals witnessed a lively fight. It is not known how O'Reiliy'a head was cut, but after the fray he was bleeding profusely. Dr. Artz at tended O'Reilly at his home. The physician says his condition is not serious. No arrests were made. OUR WARSHIPS.

HOESEB WILL BE PLENTY STATE FAIR MANAGEMENT WILL OFFER LARGE PREMIUMS. More Attention Delnv Paid to the Horse Department of the Fair Than on Any Previous Year- Liberal Parses for Saddle and Harness Horses and Hlv Pre miums for All Classes. As already announced, the state fair for 1898 will open on Monday, Sept. 5, and continue during that week. The fair this year Is being materi ally strengthened In all departments and both the exhibition and amusement features will be upon a scale never be fore attempted at a Western state fair. The race programme has already been announced and the premium lists will be ready for general distribution before the close of the present month. Mudh attention is being paid to the horse department. There is marked re covery from the depressed condition of the horse business of the last few years, end it is believed that conditions are favorable for the restoration of this department to its old-time position of importance and interest. Premiums in this department have not only been thoroughly revised, but ■have been largely increased. Liberal purses are offered for saddle and har ness horses. and classes with large pre miums are made for trotting bred horses, hackneys and cobs, coachers and drafters. Liberal sweepstakes pre miums are offered in all classes, as well as large purses for grade horses owned and bred in Minnesota. All classes are open to the world except those pro vided for grades. The department will again be in charge of E. P. Watson, of Morris, an aggressive.energetic, capable man, and a thoroughly experienced and en thusiastic horseman. He will be as sisted by his brother, D. W. Watson, of Red Wing, who is also experienced in all matters pertaining to the horse in dustry. FRANKLYN LEE BENEFIT. Promises to Be One c<f the Moxt Suc cessful Event* Ever Held in St. Paul. The coming Franklyn Lee benefit, an nounced for Friday afternoon of the present week at the Metropolitan theater, will un questionably be one of the most successful events of the kind ever given in this city. Mr. Lee had a host of friends that he made during his career as a local newspaper man, ana all have responded nobly on this occa sion.

A handful cf Hebrews lingered after lodge meeting in Central hall, Sixth and Seventh streets, yesterday afternoon, to be addressed by A. R. Kiefer and several other Repub lican candidates. Mr. Kiefer apportioned cut a few more of fices, pro rata, among the different nation alities, and told how impartially he would pass upon matters pertaining to the Hebrews when he was mayor. Several of those pres ent applauded, when Mr. Kiefer accepted the opportunity to dodge a.l further local issues and launched into a discussion of the impend ing war with Spain. R. C. Hlne. candidate for the municipal judgeahip, spoke briefly, soliciting support for himself and Judge Orr. E. E. McDonald made a break by intro ducing himself with the statement "that he did not think it worth while to wasle time talking Kiefer to those present. The He brews mistook the sentiment and loudly ap plauded. Then Mr. McDonald left the mayor alty issue to spend ha f an hour in a. mean of figures and statistics, which so wearied the listeners that half of them left the room be fore he had finished.

H h WORK ON THE CAPITOL THE NEW BI'ILDIXG PUTS ON A BUSINESS ASPECT Granite and Marble Blocks Are Be ing: Cat and Polished Ready for the Positions They Are to Occapr in the .Structure Traveling Cranes Extend the Whole Lrnglh of the Building;. With the return of the birds and the budding of spring blossoms the new state capitol is beginning to take on a business aspect. From a distance it looks as though a start had been made on the frame work, but the upright and perpendicular beams that extend the entire length of the proposed build ing are traveling cranes, by which the granite and marble blocks are car ried to their allotted resting places in the structure. The cranes are three in number, and are made of Norway pine. They stand thirty-four feet high, and the tracks are just above the proposed second floor of the building. The sub-basement was completed last fall and the granite blocks have stood the winter without injury. The base mt-nt Is now covered with iron girders and pine planks for the workmen- to walk about on. All around the building are piles of granite cut and ready to be placed. These stones are for the basement proper. Stone enough for half the base ment is now ready to be laid. Workmen were busy all winter cut ting the granite. It comes from Bax ter's quarry at St. Cloud. Since March 7 marble-cutting has been in progress at the building. William Butler, of Butler, Ryan & Co., has charge of the building opera tions, but Joseph Bourgeault has super vision of the marble and granite work. In the rear of the oapitol is a large shed in which is a complete marble cutting plant. The pride of the- establishment is a saw-gang, on wMch the marble blocks are sawed into slabs. The blocks rest on a platform. The saws are two long strong steel blades set in a movable rack and drawn to and fro across the blocks. A stream of sand and water is kept pouring over the blocks to feed the saws, so they will not become clogged, but will work through without friction. An arrangement on the upper part of the machine allows the saws to cut downwards at the rate of four inches an hour. From the saw-gang the marble slabs are taken to the planers and pol ished. The planers look like guillotines, having a similar arrangement for run ning the slabs under the knives, which are fixed instead of descending blades. Two hours are required for the polish ing of a slab six feet long. When the slabs are removed from the planers they are smooth as glass. The marble is then taken to the moulders and splitters and cutters, who carve the designs upon it. It " is then ready to be put in place in the capitol i front. The granite used is from St. Cloud, ' the marble from Georgia, the sand- ; stone from Kettle river, and the blue '■ stone from St. Paul. The building will be ready for the ! legislature of 1901.

LONDON, April 18.— The Berlin cor respondent of the Times says: "Some importance is attached to the an- I nouncement of the Correspondenz (Na- I ticnal Liberal) that Germany medi tates the 'eventuality of a stronger ! display of power at Samoa, the end I in view being the abolition of the con dornin.um, thus enabling Germany to assume exclusive sovereignty in "" the island.' "The idea is that the engagements ' of the United States and Great Britain elsewhere present a favorable oppor- j tunlty; but, looking to the probable outcome of such action, it is difficult to take the announcement as seriously as ' the German press seems to do, con- i sidering that Germany has her hands full in China, and, as the Frankfurter ! Zeitung observes, that 'Samoa is not worth such a display of power and expenditure.' " OUR WARSHIPS. Would you like to know all about our battleships, cruisers, monitors and tor pedo boats?
