Wh&t -A"rres some communities to tears only provokes mirth In others. The water supply of Santiago is said to have been cut off. What effect would such a state of things have on Milwaukee? Consulting ThsJr Imaginations. Sheridan replied to th<? arguments of an opponent with the epigram that he consulted iiis imagination for his facts and his memory for his wit. The Min nesota Republicans, in the platform adopted yesterday, hav-2 drawn wholly upon thtir imaginations for their facts and releared their memory from any draft upon it. They assert that the prosperity that is still "reluming" — not returned — "is largely due to the party's unswerving uIK-giance to the cause of sound money nrd the wise revenue legislation of the Republican congress." The party that gave the country the greenback for "money," lirst as a war measure and then in .perpetuity; thait gave us the silver purchase acts of IS7B and 1890. and called the certificates ■ money ;"th. it by the act of iSi-o brought to a focus tho forces t^at wrought in (.Uistrial havoc in 1893, draws wholly rjoo its imagination for its facts when ft refers to this record as one indicat ing "unswerving allegiance to sound money." At the moment in which the con vention was adopting this imaginative \ indication of the "wise revenue legis lation of the Republican congress, '■ which had supplied "the wants of an exhausted treasury," the wires were bringing the synopsis of the statement of the treasury department of the re ceipts and exr.e|iditur-s for the fiscal I year t'h.tt dosed yrsttrd iy. This shows that the Dingley revenue act, that has been operative for eleven of the months of this year, produced $26,500,000 less revenue than did the act denounced by these imaginative mak.rs of moonbeam platforms. In the month of June it produced $7,000,000 less than did its predecessor. As if to emphasize the absolute absence of fact in the plat- j farm, this treasury statement shows 'that the internal revenue branch of the revenue law, the branch wholly of Democratic creation, left entirely un touched by Dingley, will show an ap proximajte increase for the year of $23,- COO.OOO. The internal revenue, derived Ly means of Democratic legislation, comes within $3,000,000 of making up The loss of revenue from the Republi can customs measure. As a whole, this "wise revenue legislation of the Republican congress" results in an ex cess of expenditures over income of very nearly $100,000,000, to meet which the people of the United States are now subscribing to an issue of bonds to the amount of $200,000,000. A second Dingley bill goes Into effect today. It also must be raited with the other one as "a ntw stimulus to Amer ican industry," if we are to consult our imaginations instead of actual condi tions for our facts. A Washington dis patch tells how this new piece of Ding leyism stimulates industry. "There is a prospect of a congrstlcn of business all over the country tomorrow," says this dispatch. "The treasury depart ment, working through the bureau of internal revenue, is powerless to meet one-hundr^dith part of the demand for bank and proprietary stamps." It is a I tremendous draft upon the imagination i than can characterize as "wise revenue I legislation " that which produces a "congestion of business all over the country." Our state Republicans out class the Spaniards in the complacency • with which they consult their imagi nations for their facts. Ex't David; Enter William. One machinist simply succeeds another machinist. The Clough ma chine was ditched and a Eustls machine was run out of the roundhouse and will be given the right of way. That was the result of the Republican convention yesterday. Tarns Bixby bobs up serenely and the discomfiture of David and Ell and some others lacking scriptural cogno mens is complete. Mr. Eustls had al ready served notice that "my policy" would be Minneapolitan, and St. Paul may expect to see a Minneapolis face at every window pane In the state cap itol, and its business interests jostled rudely aside, should the Minneapolitan be elected governor. Gov. Clough has his faults— ias possibly The Globe's readers know— but It can be remem bered that he has maintained a toler ably fair attitude toward this city, since he has occupied the executive chamber. We shall hear much for a few days about the "destruction of the machine" by the independent .spirits of the grand old party, but only innocent Repub licans will be fooiled by any such chaff. The sinful and the experienced in both parties know better. Even the gov ernor must recognize in yesterday's results the work of those two skilled master-mechanics temporarily sojourn ing in Washington. No ordinary stok ers or oilers are Senators Davis and Nelson. They know the throttle and the lever, the steam gauge, and the air brake pressure — and knowledge with them has again proven great power. Mr. Eustis might be running as a Republican candidate in Pennsylvania or even In Rhode Island so far as his party's platform i.s concerned, for the only reference it makes to Minnesota matters is contained in a measly little plank favoring improved highways — for the better accommodation, we sup pose, of the Eustis machine. Naturally it favors the Hawaiian grab and the Nicaragua canal job. Otherwise it would not have been orthodox Repub lican. Meet the New Issue. Pennsylvania Democrats met on Wednesday and actually voted down a resolution reaffirming the Chi cago platform. Conventions of Dem ocrats that meet later in the season will do It equally scant reverence. The action of the Penn sylvania-is is especially signifi cant, for it was the national commit teeman from their state who was re cently ousted by the vote of a bar* majority of the national committee for heresy, the offense consisting of re maining in the old Democratic man sion while the bulk of the family went fishing. Democratic conventions held later will undoubtedly indicate that a new question has come to dominate parties and submerge all prior issues. Noth ing is clearer now than that the most important question which the vot ers of the nation have ever been called upon to consider and decide is being rapidly formulated. However far in the past its silent advance may now be traced, it burst upon the country with the roar of the first gun fired from our battleships at Spanish msr chantmen or Spanish fortifications. It is the question to which has been given the name of Imperialism; the conquest and retention of territory beyond our borders and the establishment of a THE ST. PAUL GLOIiE FRIDAY JULY 1, 1898. form ofc government for M.a people re pugnant to the principles of Democ racy. Shall the United States, to adopt the language of President Pat ton, throw overboard the Farewell Ad dress and discard the Monroe doc trine? Shall the policy of the nation, adhered to for more than a century by all parties, now be suddenly and without consideration thrown away and a new and an utterly untried one be adopted? This Is now the issue, and it Is one which the leaders of the party have promptly accepted, and which will bring together the members of our great party from their recent division. There are plenty of indica tions that it is going to loosen the ties that have held men to their parties and compel a re-alignment. Here and there is a Democrat who is caught by the glitter of imperialism, but the Re publican party contains sane, sensible, conservative men who will refuse to go with their party in this chase after wild geese. But one Democratic congressional conven#on has been held, and it would have been better had it been deferred a couple of months. Six more are to be held, and they can accept the chal lenge Republicanism tenders and ask a verdict of the voters upon the ques tion whether it is the counsel of Washington or of McKinley that shall be adopted. This is the one great Is sue now. Republicanism naturally fa vors it; Democracy as naturally op poses it. The doctrine of Democracy reads j plainly: No imperial colonial policy. No territorial expansion to beget it. No entangling alliances with any na tion under the sun. If Minnesota must be represented again by a Republican — and that point is not, of course, definitely settled — the announcement made by the Re j publican convention yesterday that Cushman K. Davis must be the man, v.ill cause no regrets to Minnesotans generally. Mr. Davis has given the North Star state standing In the coun cils of the national senate, and none of her sons have fared illy who have sought his advice and aid. Other states have been less fortunate in their selection of senators. There was the great state of New York, for instance, which once elected a distinguished Re publican to the senate. A little band of ardent independents paved the way I for his re-entrance into public life, and with the assistance of the Ar- I thur wing of the party, made it pos sible for ex-Secretary of State Will iam M. Evarts to defeat the Platt wing's candidate, the Hon. Levl P. j Morton. And when Mr. Evarts settled | himself In his chair in the senate, he fell into the pernicious habit of using postal cards in answering the letters of his Albany supporters. Madder rr.en never lived, as Teddy Roosevelt can testify. Senator Davis, on the other hand, invariably observes the proprieties, and Washington can al ways be reached from Minnesota when the telegraph wires are in working order. The St. Paul Dispatch has again demonstrated Its right to be recog nized as the loading Republican news paper of Minnesota. The Colonel never sits on the fence critically inspecting bandwagons. He gelts Into one of his own and takes chances on being tilted. We can't indorse his candidates, much as we admire his robust way of getting them into the field and fighting them through the convention. Thrusts and Parries. The rerorclg show that the elder Lelter owns $15,720,000 wortih of productive real estate in Chicago. No wonder he didn't want to be caught in hla son's wheat deal.—Min neapolis Tribune. Dollars to cents the tax records do not show It.

NOT LIKELY TO AGREE. Clewett Jury, It Is Thon&lit, Will Not Find a Verdict. The jury In the case of Sellna Clewett against the House of the Good Shepherd re tired to consider the evidence at 1 o'clock yes terday afternoon. Pierce Butler, for the de fendant, and Attorney Butts for the plaintiff, addressed the jury for something over an hour each, commencing at 10 o'clock. The arguments were followed by the charge of Judge Otis. The flist thing the jury did after leaving the court room was to march to the Metropol itan hotel for dinner. After tho meal the jurors retired to the jury room, and the sounds of voices in arguments could' be heard all the afternoon. Deputy Sheriff Bott was directed at 4 o'clock to have a liberal supply of ice water sent to the room. It was evident at 6 o'cioek that there was not much chance fo-r an agreement, as one of the jurors sent word to his family at White Bear lake that he would not be home before Friday night. Attorney Butt*, in speaking of the case yes terday, said ho had made a much stronger showing in the .last, trial than at- any of the other three trials. He expressed the opinion that he had his doubts about several of the jurors asreeingto a verdict for the plaintiff. At midnight the jurors adjusted themselves aa comfortably tas possible for the balance of the night. A ballot takjeu at that hour showed the same resulti as the one taken at 2 o'clock iivthe afternoon. The vote.

Judge W'illlaifa DJ Cornish who has been chosen first vice' president of the reorganized Union Pacific railroad, will assume his duties today. He will leave at onre for New York, where he will make his home in the future. His salary will probably be $15,000 a year. JudKO Cornish was appointed as master in chancery in 1894, and in this time has real ized $2tio,ood in fees and commissions. How ard S. Abbott, of Minneapolis, succeeds him as master in chancery. In the old company there still remains $5,000,000 in bunda, stock 3 and money to be disposed of. and about 50) miles of branch lines are still operand by the court. In April. 18f.4. Judge Sanborn, of the United States circuit court, appointed Judge Cornish as master in chancery to make a report on the receivership affairs of the old Union Pa- clflc company, and he has served In that ca pacity up to the present time. His fees and commissions on sale of property amounted to about $200,000. The appointment as vice president was made because ol' the intimeate knowledge of the affairs of the system acquired by Judge Cornish. He is familiar with the relations of the several parts of the system to each other and the pending and settled claims against the old company. Judge Cornish was born In Binghamton, N. V.. where he was admitted to the bar In 1870. The same year he came to St. Paul and began the practice of law. From ISSO to 18S3 he was a member of the St. Paul council. He served two terms In the legislature 1883 and 1883. In December, IS9I, he "was ap pointed a district judge of Ramsey county by Gov. Merriam. He Is he.d in high esteem as a citizen, and regarded as an able lawyer by the members of the bar. The appointment is highly grat ifying to his friends here. BROKEN BANKS~TrE PAYING.

Mr. Koerner supplemented his statement • with a summary of the amount of state funds still uncollected in Insolvent banks in the state. The statement showed a total of $11,000 still uncollccted of the amount tied up by the failures of 1895, and $100,000 still outstanding of the losses incurred in 1893. During the last month $40,001 in cash has been received from banks failing in ls9i about evenly divided between the State Bank of Duluth and the AUemannia Bank of St Paul.

He Says People Are Calling Him Names These Days. Dr. Richard Price, city veterinarian, was In the police court yesterday, charged by Karl Oxman with using abusive language. Oxman claims Dr. Price accosted him on the street and applied opprobrious epithets to him. Dr. Price's story is to the effect that two weeks ago Oxman backed a wagon into his buggy, damaging the vehicle, and drove rapidly away. When he met Oxman on West Third street Wednesday, Dr. Trice admitted that he had not been altogether compli mentary In what he had said. Oxman denies that he is the man who colided with l>r. Price's buggy. The case was continued until next Thurs day. - ' Oxman claimed that Patrolman McEUistrom also called him names and had the police man before the mayor. After hearing the evidence Mayor Kiefer concluded that tho charge against the officer watt unfounded and took no action. FOB HER DAUGHTER. Pretty Luncheon Given YeNtcrday by Mri. Edward 1,. Herttej .

Tarantulas do not dance to the sound of the violin, but let tho people they bite do the dancing; scorpions, however, enjoy flJdllrg, and lizards go crazy for music of any kii.d. As for serpents, the boa constrictor and py thon are senseless to melcdy, but the cobra Is fascinated by the flute and still more by the fiddle. Polar bears enjoy the viol!n; so do ostriches; wolves wiil stop In the chase to listen to a cornet; elephants are fond of the flute, esppclally the upper notes; timers, while appreciating violin and flute, cannot stand the harmonium, while the musical seal shows no emo'ion en htaring any instrument, not even the bass drum.

RACE ISSUE IS INVOLVED ANOTHER POINT SPEUNG ON HAWAIIAN ANNEXATION Senator Tlllman Wnrn» (he Mt-nnte AtSUtnmt ActiiiK Hastily Without Con»lderiiiK the <Jr«r» UucMloiin Involved In tlie Hawaiian Matter Scnulori llol.ll> Drnouiwe In tfrferciut' in the li. i , i !M ,| ,.„ WASHINGTON, June 30.— Late this afternoon the senate cleared the legis lative desks for what may be the filial j action on the Hawaiian annexation resolutions. Through ita action today the last of the appropriation bills that have been pending in oonferenca was disposed of and was a law before mid night. After a debate lasting three hours " the senate finally receded from its amendments to the sundry civil bill, and adopted the oanferenee report url the Indian appropriation biil. Mr. Aili- . son (Iowa), in charge of the bills, ex plained that it was necessary that the reports should be agreed to today, aa this was the la»t day of the h'Koal year I He pointed out that if the bllla were net laws by midnight they would have to be pa-s.sid again by the two branch as of oengress. The delay consequent upon such aoMon would seriously cm i barrass the government and niUlit force congress to remain in session several weeks longer. In denouncing the action of the con ferees for striking out the- free homes provision of the Indian bill, Mr. Pet tigrew (Si\. Hep., S. D.) chargr-d the Republican party with being 'lamin ated by the "money power" and with the election of senators by the corrupt use of money. Mr. Bate (Term.) and Mr. Til! man (Dem., S. C.) dlseoMed at length the Hawaiian annexation resolutions. Thf> latter discussed the race problem from the standpoint of a Southern man and was characteristically vigorous in his remarks. He accounted for the slight intersted manifested in the Hawaiian debase by saying that the question was fully discussed in execu tive session early last winter and that It was only natural that there should be a liatfk of interest and an unwilling ness to listen to a repetition of speech es delivered tonight. In dlscuhsinp the race problem pre served, Mr. Tillman said: "The Philippines are already densely populated with races for which we have no affinity or liking. It is the came with Porto Rico, and in some de gree with Cuba. But we have alreidy one perplexinr and harrass-ing problem right here at home and that must give us pau. c e. I mean the negro question. The wisest statesmanship is unable to foresee 'the final result of the presence in the same commonwealth of two dis tinct races, each possessing the same rights under the law, but one of which is superior to the other." At the conclusion of Mr. Tillman'a speech, Mr. Allison reported the dis agreement between the conferees of the two branches of congress on the sundry civil bill. After a discussion, which lasted mar ly two hours, the senate voted without division to recede from rr-nate amend ments, and this vote passed the bill. At the request of Mr. Allison the con ference report on the Indian appropria tion bill was then submitted to the senate. A long discussion ensued upon the free homestead clause, at the end of which the conference rt-p.:rt was adopt ed.
