Our Agricultural Exports.
As the government fiscal year nears
its close, the attention of the commer
cial world is being attracted to the
enormous amd unprecedented, volume of
.lire nation's exports which the record
of the twelve months between July 1,
1807, and June 30, 1898, will reveal. The
figures for the present month are not
ytt available; but, assuming that they
equal the sum of our exports of June
of last year, the tatal for the fiscal
year wild amount to $1,213,000,000, 01
:M 62,000,000 in excess of 1897. Already
our exports for eleven, months show an
exceßs of $85,000,000 over any previous
year in our history, and if the volume
during June shall prove to be equal to
that for May the total exports for the
present fiscal year will amount to $1,
--2X8,000,000, or 18 per cent over _the re-coid
of 1897, which was $1,051,000,000. Fur
thermore the present indications are
that when the computations are finally
made the fact will be revealed that our
exports exceed our imports in the sum
of $600.000,000— which amount represents
that of the balancs of trade in our
favor. Of course, 'this means a mag
nificant total in the sum of our gold
imports during the same perk>3. Thesi
amount already to albout $112,000,000.
These figures are approximately twice
those of the last year, and are equal to
those of 1881, which possesses the high
est record in connection with the sub
ject ofythe importation of gold in the
history of the country.
But that which will be of special in
terest to the people of this section is
the fact that, of this great volume of
exports, considerably more than ?800,
--000,000—possibly as much as $53ii,000,000
— represent the products of agriculture.
The total value of breadstuffs alone
for the eleven months ending May 31
was $2y5,C03,138, against $179,056,673 for
the same period in 1897, $124,749,759 in
1896, and $102,008,360 in 1895. Of cattle
and hogs the total for the eleven
months ending May 31 was $32,111,065,
as against $30,516,034 in 1897, $29,053,796
in 1896, and $26,937,511 in 1895. But the
most striking advance is in provisions,
the figures for which show a value
of $141,778,827 for the eleven months
ending May 31, as against $115,989,305
during the same period of 1897, $116,
--165.634 in 1806, and $121,090,208 in 1895.
The total for the fiscal yearVlß96-18!)7
was $128.158,e55; that for 1895-18%, $127,
--192,555, and 1894-95, $130,245,837. These
figures illustrate to vvhat extent the
world relies upon the United States
for food for the support of people in
distant lands.
In a general way it may be said that
in only two fiscal-year periods, name
ly ISSI and 1892, have our agricultural
exports reached even the total of $700,
--000,000. Compared with the last "fiscal
year the ir.crecse will be approximately
$:r.0,C00,0C0; with 1898 more than $250,
--000,000, and with 1395 the excess will
probably reach 50 per cent. A great
ircrease is shown in the exports of
corn, which will show a total of more
than 200,000,000 bushels. There has
been an increase in oatmeal of 60 per
cent over 1897, and in unmilled oats of
100 per cent. A large proportion of
the increase in provisions consists of
heg products. An interesting feature
in thi.s connection exists in the increase
in the amount cf. our bacon which is
exported. Last year the value was
$34,187,147, while this year it will prob
ably reach the total of $40,000,000. The
increase in lard is shown by the esti
mated value of $37,000,000, as against
$29,126,485 last year. Of beef cattle we
exported between July 1, ISD7, and
April 30, 1898, 379,663 head, against 310,
--478 during the same period last year.
These represented a value of $32,352,
--833 and $28,866,703, respectively. There
has, however, been a shrinkage during
the period named, in dressed beef,
from 242,168,034 pounds in 1897, to
227,434,373 pounds in 1838. There have
also been slight declines in the matter
of salted and canned meats.
Taken as a whole, the showing can
not fail to be most gratifying to farm
ers throughout the country. The sigas
are also good for another twelve
months of equal, if not surpassing,
prosperity. The value of our trade
with Spain, with whom we are now at
war, had grown to so slender propor
tions as not to be counted worthy of
much consideration in connection with
the subject. Our exports to that coun
try had shrunk to an average value
during the past five years of $16,240",558,
as against $18,305,404 for the five years
preceding 1893.
"Who Cares for Abroad?"
There has not been a day, until with
in the last three months, that Qeorjje
Hoadley did not express the unanimous
sentiment of his party, when, in repiy
to some one who was pleading for more
liberal terms for foreign trade, he de
risively shouted: "Who 'cares tor
abroad?" Not only has the Republican
party not "cared for abroad, but it
has missed no opportunity to breed
prejudice against everything and ev
erybody foreign. It has "twisted the
British lion's tail" for the edification of
its children, who, however, were non
plussed because no roar 'followed. It
has waved off the merchants of foreign
countries who would come to sell what
our people wanted to buy, and, if the
latter persisted in wanting and getting
the things the foreigner brought, It has
made the former pay smartly for what
it considered their folly, if not their
disloyalty. The latest manifesto offi
cially declaring this Indifference to
"abroad" was signed by the president of
the United States July 24, 1897, at 4:07
p. m., with a "mother-of-pearl pen." It
Is known as the Dingley tariff act.
With the rapidity and dexterity of a
lightning-change artist, the Repub
lican party has changed from an atti
tude of indifference to one of intense in
terest in "abroad." While its hands are
reaching out for some of .the territory
that is "abroad," it keeps an anxious
eye and ear on that other "abroad" to
wards which, for thirty-seven years, it
has preserved an attitude of supercili
ous superiority. After cuffing our Ca
nadian cousin's ears no later than
seven months-ago, it now invites him
ever to sit down and discuss terms of
commercial amity over a bottle of ale
and a pipe of Kinnikinnick. John Bull
ceases to be the prowler at our gates,
with his pauper goods made by pauper
labor, trying to break in and flood us
with cheap goods and crush out the
lives of our tender infants. It sudden
ly discovers that he speaks our lan
guage and that kindred blood flows in
the veins of the two peoples. While
we are getting a good ready to wallop
Spain out of the "Western hemisphere
: and to appropriate her possessions in
j the Eastern, Republicanism is for onct
I
THE ST. PAUL GLOBE WEpNESDAY JUNE 22, 1898.
solicitous how the rest at "abroad" will
take the spoliation of Its neighbor.
There are some consequences of this
not caring: for abroad that will put
this oountry at a disadvantage. If tho
Republican party makes the country
lock arms with the "abroad." When a
nation departs from an attitude of iso
lation, political and industrial, the re
lations it assumes call for a radical
change in many directions. Its diplo
matic and consular service, for in
stance, can no longer be made a snug
hanbor for superfluous or impecunious
party henchmen or decayed politicians.
Diplomacy is as much a profession as
law or medicine; and consular service
is as much a business as merchandis
ing. Men sent abroad as diplomats or
consuls will have to understand the
language of the country to which they
go. "Oom" Gowdy can be transferred
from the fields of Illinois to the consul
generalship in Paris with propriety as
long as we do not "care for abroad,"
but he becomes ridiculous when
"abroad" becomes a matter of solici
tude.
Another consequence is that we must
be prepared for a rumpus with one or
more of the Abroads at any time, and
have a stout navy, as big as the big
gest and as costly, with as big or big
ger guns. We must have a big stand
ing army to back up the navy, and
fleets of transports and colliers ready.
These cost money to create and more
to maintain, and that means more tax
ation, more going down into your
pockets and paying what you cannot
dodge of your share. It calls for a
merchant marine of our own, and, as
it is too much to expect that the habit
of being nursed and coddled and fos
tered will as suddenly cease its de
mands, we must expect calls on the
treasury for big subsidies, and that
means more taxes. All this and more
follows as a consequence of this sud
den caring for Abroad in the form Re
publicanism is taking.
Disposition of Blockade Runners.
To The St. Paul Globe:
You will place me undsr renewed obliga
tions to you by answering the following ques
tions:
1. If a boat belonging to a neutrsl p»wer,
loaded w\th provisions, in a t:mpcir>g to run
the blockade, is taken by our government,
what becomes of the ship and cargo?
2. If the cargo is contraband of war, than
what becomes of it?
3. If the ship and cargo belong to a Spanish
company, with hon;e office in Spain, vvhat
becomes of it?
4. I see that the ships which toak our
boys to the PhCippincs changed their regU'.er
what docs that signify?
— H. H. Ostrhout.
Morristown, June 50.
To the first three questions the answer
Is that the vessel and cargo are seized,
a prize ci.ew put aboard, the vessel tali
en to one of our ports, information laid
against her and her cargo as violating
the law, a judicial investigation had,
and. if the charge is found true, the
vessel and cargo are sold and the pro
ceeds apportioned between the govern
ment and the officers and crew of the
warship making the capture.
4. Pcreign-built .ships must have an
American register in order to catry
American troops.

JDDGE WILLIS IN THE FIELD
HE AHNOIOIC£S HIMSELF AS A
CANDH)ATE } FOE CONGRESS
One of tlie Beat Campaigners In the
State, He la Likely to Be ritted
Asalnat Krefl Stevens Repab
llcana Have Everything; Cnt and
Dried for the Convention To
morrow.
There is no longer any doufot as to
who will be selected by the Democrajta
of the Fourth congressional district to
defeat Congreesmau Stevens this fall.
Judge John AY. Willis said yesterday
afternoon that he understcod there waa
general demand among Xf mocrats that
he make the race, and that he would
accept the nomination— which an
nouncement practically settles the mat
ter, for it has been an optn secret for
poin-e time that if Judge Willis would
accept he would be nominated. There
in no room for speculation as to who
his ODDoner.it will be, either, for the
Republican leaders say that Mr. Stev
ens must be nominated. The announce
ment of the candidacy of so strong a
man as Judge Willis might have chang
ed the Republican programme if it had 1
been announced earlier, but it is too
late to change it now. Stevens will ha
nominated and very likely defeated.
Judg>e Willis was asktd yesterday
sfternoon if he would accept the Dem
ocratic nomination, and he said:
"If there is a genc.al dtrrard for my
candidacy in the party I will accept,
and I am led to believe that there will 1
be such a demand. I am a candidate
for the nomination under the condi
tions and will do what I can to over
come that 10,000 majority. I hope lo
be able to change ths conditions in the
district."
There is no doubt that the judge will
make a strong- oandidate and there is
no possible doubt tfcit the nomination '
Will be terxLred him. He is a grand;
Ciimpaigner and will make such a cam
paign that Mr. Stevens will be emtire y
outclassed if it corner to compaiiHO.'.s |
of the two men. Mr. Stevens wiil hard- j
ly be likely to hold his party in line, |
I and there are plenty of vo;.e« to go j
on in the disUict if the:c is any large j
disaffection amang the Republicans. ;
One- man who is very well known !
&,rr.ong Repub icans made the statement I
when he was told of Judge Willis' can- !
dirlgcy:
"Xoere! That comes of us baing j
idiots enough, to: consent to another i
term of Stevens. Willis will beat him j
if the Democrats s!and 'together."
The local Eustis ip.sople took heart of j
gif.ee test ri?ht when they h: aid that '■
their .iran had carried the ccuntry pre
cincts in Her.inepin county, and that he
bad a fairly good :shc\v for having thi i
majority of the delegates in th? county j
! Vvhen it ca.rr.is- to fighting for tho con-
I verttion. But there-w are not enough in
I St. Paul to cut v-ry much of a fUrur.?, j
and Dar Rees;:, Filed Schiffmpr.n and j
other lights cC the St. Paul end of the 1
j Republican paTty were so little inter- j
ested in the opposition that had becm
weakly threatened at the primaiies las:
j nislit that th*y went up to the council
I c'iimbfr end listened while the attsmp: ■
was b:irg m: de to £et To.ti C'nroy out
of office.
There is r.o-nsrht in sight for the
primaries, and the convention tomorrow
will be quite harmless, unless there is
a proposal made by the younger ele
ment to aboHsh'delegates at large. The
leaders will fight this in ths convention, |
tc.r it would have the ■ effect <3'f taking |
the power out 6? their hands and giv
ing the mob a : char.es to do some of j
the steering in the state convention. A !
member of the city committee said j
last night that.it I wculfl,,b_.a a.go-jd. thing
to bring abouT: as a "Warning to the
lenders that they are not the who's
tiding. He also Eaid that it wou'.d prob
ably be clone. He said:
"A few men have been doing a!l the
talking and setting ml the glory fn
state 1 conventions, and it is time that j
they were notified to yuit. The propo- I
siHon wiM be brought up tomorrow. " '
There will be no quarrelirtg tonight
q.t the primarirs. In a coupe of pre
''ir.cts of the First there had been op
posing tickets proposed, but the city
committee stopped th.^ trouble by in
dicating who the men ought to Bs a.nd
the others laid down. In the Fifth it
■vas necesE3ry, cr :t was thought nee s
■»ary, to call a n.eeting of the warJ |
iead?rs. It was ca'led for C. S. P. S. j
hall, on West Seventh street, but theri
i was no attendance and t';:e names that
I were sent to the cily committee for i
places on the tickets will be i
voted for. In the Eleventh ward. State i
Grain Inspsctcr Clausen wanted to ba 1
a de'.CR-ate, but he was forced to givj j
in in the interest of harmony, and will j
not be in the convention unless he has :
a proxy. It is possible that representa- 1
tions may be made to 3SL C. Craig to- j
day that will let Mr. Clausen in. as It
is clear that the ad-ministration has ev
erything rounded up.
There will be more petty offlce-hold
| ers in the convention that will meet
tomorrow than ever before sat in a
I Ramsey county convention, and the !
I same will be true on a larger scale of I
I the state convention. Wherever there !
tias been any sort of opposition to the j
s!ate ticket it has been on the ground j
that the ticket contained too many of- |
j fice holders, ar/d l at times the ran4c and I
I file has been mollified by changes, but j
I these little fights have not been of suf- i
! ficient inrpor'tance to warrant notice.
In the Fourth ward all is not as love
ly as it seems. The attitude of most of
the delegates towards the old leaders I
is not decided. They are all for Dar I
Reese, as is every delegate in every j
ward for the matter of that, but it is
not quite clear as to how they stand |
with regard to Henry Johns and Fred j
Schiffmann. The latter is back in line
and there seems to be a disposition gen
erally to condone his lapse of last
spring. He will, of course, want to go
to the state convention as a delegate,
and that would settle the matter of his
I reinstatement
Whether he will or not will probably
be settled at a caucus of the Fourth
ward delegates to the county conven
tion, which will be held this evening at
the Windsor hotel. And there is going
to be a row at that caucus.
Maj. Libby is in earnest aibout his
candidacy for the shrievalty, and the
fact is worrying Col. Milham. Libby
will, of course, have to fight Milham.
The other candidates are out on llnep
of their own.n The minute the state
convention is >-out:.of the way there
will be a half-dozen combinations
formed in the<coup^ house. As things
stand now, ha^f of 1 the officers and
their deputies nare. not on speaking
terms with each other, and there is a
frost coming that ttll\ rend the founda
tions^ of the building.
Every deputy in the county «nd of
the building, rfyith-.cthe exception of
Register KrafcmeiVs principal hired
man, is out looking; for a job.
Zollman makes no bones whatever
ahout saying flhat 'he is a candidate to
succeed his dhltef, and it is certain that
Sam Anderson: will ■ demand a state
ment of Zollman's position as soon as
the convention is field.
Deputy Auditor Bourne wants Denny
Sullivan's jofoffand he is going after
it shortly.
M. W. Fitzgerald 13 only waiting for
the convention to pass before he makes
the deal that he thinks will land him
in Mr. Sullivan's patent leathers.
Libby wants the sheriff's place, and
there you are. If there are not new
faces at some of the deputies' desks
presently, it will only be because the
chiefs will fear public opinion too much
to make removals.
The talk that was made a few days
ago about the probaJbiMty of the Demo
cratic state headquarters being rcmov- :
Ed to Minneapolis Is not likely to go
very far. Arrangements will undoubt
edly toe made by the local Democrats
to tender a deslralble location for head
quarters to Chairman Rosins, as soon
as he has been elected, and they will
be so made that the offer will be ac
cepted.
FJve members of the Ramsey county
delegation to the Populist convention
met last evening At -the office of A.
Paradis to consider some sort of a
proposition for getting together and
possibly effecting- the substitution of
the name of Mr. Llnd for that of Mr.
Long on the mid-road ticket.
It was concluded that It would not
tie well to call the meeting to order
with such a meager attendance, and
there will be another meeting called.
The call for the next meeting will
make the specific business that of
electing three members of the state
committee from this congressional dis

FEAR OF THE INSANE WARD
• —
IT IMPELLED CLARA PETERS TO
i-i END HER LITE
Rather Than Suffer the Compuwton
shlp of the Crazy;, She Took Pnrin
Green and Gave Some of It to
Her Infant Child The Mother
Died bat Hie Babe May Re
caver.
Fearful of incarceration In an insane
asylum, Mrs. Clara Peter*, wife of
Louis Peters, a farmer living four miled
beyond the city limits on the German
road, took a dose of Paris green with
suicidal intent Monday, and also ad
ministered a portion of the poison to
her eight-months-old baby.
The babe recovered from the effects
of the poison, but Mrs. Peters died at
3:30 o'clock yesterday morning at the
office of Dr. O. A. Beal, where she was
taken for treatment when it was dis
covered that she had attempted to end
her life.
For several months Mrs. Peters suf
fered from some nervous complaint,
which she feared threatened her mind.
This made her at times remorseful,
when she talked of ending her trouble
in death. She had been under the
treatment of several specialists in this
city, and Monday afternoon her hus
band prepared to bring her to St. Paul
for a consultation with one of the phy
sicians.
When informed that she was to visit
the doctor Mrs. Peters seemed to think
that a final determination had been
reached to send her to the insane asy
lum. Shortly after 2 o'clock she be
came violently ill and the baby also
was taken sick. The baby soon became
relieved of the poison, but Mrs. Peters
grew worse, and while she suffered
great agony her husband drove with
her to Dr. Beal's office.
The woman was in intense pain after
the long ride and very weak. Dr. Beal,
assisted by Dr. Hawkins, at once ap
plied every treatment for arsenical
poisoning, and after several hour's
work, Mrs. Peters seemed to improve.
Her vitality was nearly exhausted,
however, and she died at half past 3
o'clock.
Mr. Peters says there was no other
cause for his wife's act, other than the
mental trouble which she had been suf
fering. Shr did her household work
as usual Monday morning and showed
no signs of despondency until she was
appraised of the contemplated visit to
the city.
Mrs. Peters was thirty-one years of
age. Her death leaves three mother
less children, the oldest six years of
.age. The funeral will take place from
the family home tomorrow afternoon.
COUNTY WILL COLLECT IT
•SIRS. BRISTOL'S ESTATE WILL, PAY
$04,000
Decision of the Federal Conrt Ye»
-terdny Is a Victory for Every
County in the State in Effect, Al
thonuh Washington Is the One
Specified Clewett Case Likely
to Be FinlslKd Today.
Sophia M. Bristol lived in New York,
and after the fashion of New Yorkers
and other dwellers in the effete East
she had a lot of money, but she didn't
have all there was and she tried to add
to her store by loaning her wealth to
farmers in the Northwest, and partic
ularly in Washington county, this
state. The unearned increment that
went forth into the coffers of Mrs. Bris
tol was very considerable, and when
she died some months ago she left a
very large estate, a considerable por
tion of which was, and still is, in the
form of notes and mortgages in the
hands of her agents in Washington !
county.
During all the ears that Mrs. Bristol,
and her father before her, loaned
money in Washington county, W. M.
McCluor. of Stillwater, acted as agent
for fathur and daughter, and the notes
and other evidences of indebtedness
remained in the hands of the agent.
When a few years ago Mrs. Bristol
added C. H. McCluer to the agency
the same conditions as to the location
of the tangible evidences of indebted
ness remained. And during all of this
time there had been no taxes paid to
the county of Washington on these
personal evidences of wealth. Upon
the death of Mrs. Bristol the county
of Washington brought suit against the
estate to recover unpaid taxes that had
accumulated against the notes and
mortgages held by the McCluers for
their principal. The whole sum al
leged by the county to be due was
$64,000. and the United States circuit
court yesterday decided that the county
had a right to collect.
The decision is an important one b.s
affecting the right of sovereign bodies
to collect taxes upon all tangible forms
of wealth if the evidences are located
within the confines of the territory
which the sovereign body assesses the
taxes upon.
BAD FOR THE SOLDIERS.
"Benefit" Excu ration Last MrM Was
Something; of a Fiasco.
A rather hilarious crowd of pleasure
seekers enjoyed an excursion on tho
steamer Henrietta last evening, without
knowing to what trouble the promoters
of the affair had gone in attempting
to make it a grand success. There
was a trifling hitch while the excur
sionists waited at the foot of J&ck
son street for the boat to start, but
this was due to the refusal of the
captain to get up steam until he had
been paid the rental of the steamer.
This matter was finally arranged, but
the beer for the refreshment of the
party still stood on the dock, the hard
hearted agent declaring it should not
go aboard until he also had been set
tled with. This matter was finally ad
justed by the agent assuming charge of
the bar and appropriating the proceeds
j as fast as they came in until his bill
was liquidated.
But these difficulties were not all of
the embarrassments which fell to the
lot of the managers, for one of them
was in the custody of Detective Wells
yesterday afternoon, trying to convince
the authorities that the excursion was
what it purported to be, namely a bene
fit for the "sick and wounded" soldiers
of the Twelfth and Fourteenth Minne
sota volunteer regiments.
The man said his name was Ryan
and carried what purported to be an
agreement signed by prominent public
officials Indorsing the excursion and
setting forth that 50 per cent of the
profits were to Tae devoted to the two
above regiments. The paper container!
the alleged signatures of Gov. Clough,
Mayor Kiefer, Mayor Pratt, of Minne
apolis, and other officials. He declarod
these officials had commended the pro
ject and that the soldiers' share of the !
receipts was to be turned over to j
Comptroller McCardy, whom, he said, i
had agreed to act as treasurer of the '
"fund."
Detective Wells tcok Ryan to Mayoi-
Kiefer's office and later let him go.
Last evening Ryan said that he stood
ready to turn over 50 per cent of the
profits, if there were any, as he agreeft
to do, but from the rather small num
ber on the boat and the slow sale of ;
refreshments, it is likely that all of
the proceeds will have to be devoted
to expenses.

COMMERCIAL CLUB NOTES.
The club gave Maj. P. H. Bldwell, who
left with the recruits for Fort Thomas last
evening, over 1,060 pounds of printed matter,
to be distributed among the Minnesota sol
diers. The ciub is again ready to receive
donations.
Charming Seabury, of the board of state
capital commissioners, has sent a formal
Invitation to the members of the club to
visit the new capitol grounds and to watch
the progress that is being made In the con
struction of the new building.
He states that the marble for the interior
of the building will begin to be used and
placed in position the Ist of August, and wish
es the people of St. Paul to see it and to
appreciate how beautiful it is.
The club has been inform-ed that at the
exhibition drill, given by the Thirteenth Min
nesota regiment at the Red Cross benefit, at
Camp Merritt, Gen. 'Merritt told Col. Reeve
that he was more than pleased with the
exhibition and congratulated him on having
such a magnificent regiment. The regimental
band came in for a share of the praise, and
is considered the best band in the camp.
St. Paul should feel gratified at this report,
as it was through the efforts of the club that
a sufficient amount was raised to enable
Loader Watson to equip his band with able
tr.ler.t.
The following recruits for the signal corps
took luncheon last Saturday at the club prior
to their departure for Camp Merritt, and In
