"It is going to be Kiefer and antl-Kiefer to a finish. The mayor proposes to have control of tfcf machine of the party and have his own men in the county offices so far c* poeeible. It is the county machine that counts, and he does not propose that the offices in the court house shall be filled by men who will be likely to oppose his congressional aspirations. He- Is aware of the fact that he will have to do hU fighting now and the campaign is practically framed up. His dose friends have been gathering about certain candidates within a couple of days in such a manner that there is no doubt of what he intends. It was Kiefer that settled the deter mination of Billy Johnson to make the run for auditor instead of sheriff. Jotaeon has been framing up the shrievalty nomination for some time, but was hauled off at the finish and given the proper start for the other nomination by Kiefer's direction. George Gerlich and Henry Tost and the Kiefcr people generally were in the movement to give Johnson the sup pi rt of the Eighth. Of couFse all know that the meeting of Monday night re sulting in the Indorsement of Billy may mean nothing at all, but It shows tho front of the campaign. Johnson and Bill Ames are playing together, am 1 , the mayor is behind it all. If he could get Ames into the sheriff's office, the control of the county would be practically assured to Kiefer. The alli ance is a menace to a good many of the other candidates, and they will not wait to be forced into a fight. They'll go looking for it. There is the Fourth •ward. Do you suppose that Schiff ir.ann and Donahower and that crowd v.-ill fcit down and let Kiefer do any business in that ward? Not in a cen tury. They'll s>imply drop their ward row and line up with the proposition that Kiefer has got to be suppressed They have a great advantage over any of the other wards, for they always vote solidly, and they can beat any one or two men they go after.

A deal between the Fourth ward organization and the Seventh is easily within reach, and j they might easily be assured of the tupport of the Second. Fitzgerald can depend on the support of his own ward, | and when the Seventh, Fourth and Sec- i or.d get into line against the Kiefer push there will be the finest row this town hats seen in local politics since | Willie Eagan's dog choked eating the i records of Mr. Fortune's club." • * * There "s much truth in what the pol- ( ltician said. The fight that has started j since Johnson took snap judgment in j the Eighth and Wickwire was taken up by the Fourth Is getting really good. The nomination for auditor is clearly between Fitzgerald and John son. The other candidates are merely possibilities, and there Is no doubt that the Kiefer support is with Johnson to som-e extent. The anti-Kiefer ele ment is lining up behind Fitzgerald, and he was handed the support of the Fourth without an effort. The two factions are abusing each other as fiercely as though the convention was three days off. There will be a meeting 1 of Sixth yard Democrats at Justice Smith's court room, on South Robert street, this Thursday evening, Aug. 25. All Democrats are invited to be present. GIVEN A WARM WELCOME. St. Michael's Glad to Have Rev. Fath er O'Neill Home Again. Several hundred parishioners of St. Michael's parish, West St. Paul, as eernibled in the open air around the church on Colorado street last night and welcomed Rev. Patrick O'Neill, who has just returned from a three months' trip through Ireland. The grounds were hung with Vene tian lanterns and an elevated platform was situated at the head of the grounds over which was painted in large letters "Welcome Home." Father O'Neill occupied a seat on the plat form with Father Eilig and William Kelly, a prominent parishioner, all ef whom made short talks. Those present gave practical evidence of their regard 'in i-ather O'Neill by coming f« T.ard at the conclusion of the.e-.ercises and greeting him person ally. Several hundred were present. Mr. Kelly welcomed Father O'Neill back to the parish and complimented Father Ellig for the earnest manner in which he had conducted the affairs of the parish during Father O'Neill's absence. Father O'Neill made a short address, saying that his visit to Ire land had been one of pleasure and in struction. He had been asked fre quently about the war, and despite re ports, the sentiment of the Irish peo ple to a man favored the success of the American forces, whether on 'and or sea, and no little interest had been shown by the Irish people in the out come of the conflict. The crops had been, fine during the last year, and the proverbial potato crop was still at the front as the fore most agricultural production of the Em erald Isle. "Ireland was," he said "the most contented and happy little spot on the face of the earth," and taken in all, conditions in Ireland were much improved, and its people were all happy. Father Ellig followed with a few re marks in which he stated that the suc cess of the parish during the absence of Father O'Neill had been due largely to the consecrated efforts of the parish ioners themselves. He thanked them for the complimentary mention which had been made of his work among them and assured the audience that he would ever stand ready to assist Father O'Neill in carrying on the work of the parish. The Morgan orchestra furnished music during the evening, and Mesdames Loftus and Meyers gave vocal solos. Among those present were John Nagle, Thomas, Hoban. John Clancy, James King, James Slayben, John McGrath, Thomas Nagle, Mr. and Mrs. John Griffin, Mr. and Mrs. James Pendergast. VISIT FROM GEN. WADE. Runs Up to St. I'iiul to Spend a Few Hoars. Maj. Gen. James F. Wade returned to St. Paul yesterday. He will soon go to Havana, where he will assist Gen. Blanco get rid of Spanish troops in Cuba, "I have just come from Washing ton," said Gen. Wade to a reporter for The Globe. "I have been in good health since I left for the front, but this is the first day I have experienced cool weather since I reached Cincin nati on my way to Tampa. "I cannot account for the great amount of sickness at Chickamauga. except on the theory that the men there have undergone an entire change of their mode of living, and it has af fected them. I do not know when th 9 men will be mustered out nor what regiments will be sent home, but I think we shall require 50,000 men for garrison duty in Cuba." At the same time, Gen. Wade said, the nation could not use the large army now in service, and many undoubtedly would be mustered out He could not say anything about the fate of the Twelfth and Fourteenth regiments. They are not in his brigade, and he only knew of them from what he read and heard. Gen. Wade will return to Washing ton today to receive instructions as to the course of action to be pursued in dealing with the Spaniards when ar ranging for the evacuation of Havana, The commission, is to meet there Sept. 12. He will be accompanied by his son, Lieut. John Wadg, of the Fifth cavalry. As general Wade is the senior member of the Cuban commission, he may be chosen chairman of it. Gen. Wade said all the members of his staff are in good health. He has not been ill a day since he left for the front, but he is considerably brown'e"s "by the Southern sun. He expressed deep regret that Col. Page, of the Third regiment, was sick with malaria. Gen. Wade said It was impossible for him to say whether the Third would be sent back to Fort Snelling.

Be« St. Paul Sl DuiutU agents lor detail*. THE ST. PAUL GI,OBE THURSDAY AUGUST 25, 1898. HIS IDEAS ARE MARKED SENATOR HANNA KNOWS WHAT HE WANTS AND TELLS IT Porto Rico and Manila Mast Dc American Possessions, and Calm Will Be Americanized Socially and Practically, if Xi»t Organic. ally Philippines He Is Not Sure Aboat. Senator Marcus A. Hanna, of Ohio, arrived in this city last evening on the Northern Pacific from the Yellowstone park. He is accompanied by his daugh ter, Miss Ruth Hanna, and the Misses Phelps and McCurdy. The party is stopping at the Aberdeen. "We have had a most delightful trip," said Senator Hanna to a reporter for The Globe. "We went from Cleve land to Duluth by boat and then to the park. Politics? I don't want to say much about politics." "What is this government going to do with the Philippines?" "That is hard to say," replied the senator. "The Philippines' future is a problem we cannot solve in a hurry. We, of course, must retain a coaling station there, but I do not think it like ly we shall want more than Manila and its harbor. There are docks and yards there for warships and ample facil ities for keeping our vessels in repair. I doubt whether we shall require more than that in the Philippines. We do not know whether it is desirable to have the" Philippines. We know noth ing about the people there or the country. Very little is known about those islands-. I had an interview in Washington with a gentleman who came from there recently after spend ing three years in the archipelago, and he told me that only the fringe of the island of Luzon had been explored. There are native tribes that never have been subject to Spanish rule, and what we are going to do with these people is one of the things to consider before we talk of annexing them to the Unit ed States. That mineral wealth is to be found in the islands is quite cer tain, but to what extent the islands may be developed is another matter. "Porto Rico is ours by the terms of the protocol, and we shall take posses sion of the island without delay. It is an important outpost and belongs to us naturally. "Cuba is another problem. I never was much of a Cuban and am not pre pared to commit myself as to the pol icy we should pursue there. We pro pose to establish a stable government in that island, but what constitutes a stable government has not yet been defined. I think, however, Cuba will be an evolution, and In about twenty years it will be so thoroughly Amer icanized that there will be no question as to what a stable government there means. "I do not think there will be a for mal alliance with England. Whenever the commercial interests of the two nations are identical I believe they will support each other, morally, if not physically, but beyond that I do not believe an alliance will exi&t. The flag of commerce will prevail more gen erally than heretofore, and I think the war will result in a wonderful devel opment of our merchant marine. That I think essential to the commercial su premacy of this country. "This country is now entering upon a period of industrial and commercial prosperity such as it never has known. The war has put $300,000,000 in circula tion, and business in every quarter has been stimulated. There was at first a depression in trade, but the country is recovering from that and is forging to the front. Everywhere the s.tory is the same. The railroads have more business in sight than ever before, and the next five years will be years of unexcelled prosper tiy. "It is too early to speak of presiden tial prospects, but I believe President McKinley will be the next Republican nominee. He will not be a candidate for the office, but the people will call him and will re-elect him. His course during this war has been admirable, and I expect when the time comes even the St. Paul Globe will support him." WORST OF IT IS OVER. Red Cross Workers Feel Much En couraged as to the Prospect. A contribution of $5, -which came all the way from England, was received at the Red Cross society yesterday. It was from Mrs. Henry Nlcols, of this city, who is now traveling in Europe, and was enclosed in a letter to Mra. D. A. Monfort. Mrs, Nicols says she has watched the progress of the Red Cross work, and is glaa of the good being done; she is often with the work ers in thought. While the English pa pers give a great deal of news con cerning the war, papers from home are always welcome. A letter was also received from the Red Cross society of California, in forming the local society that supplies forwarded by them would be gratefully received. There is much serious sick ness among the troops now stationed at San Francisco; the regimental hos pitals are overcrowded — and many patients, on this account, must be dis charged before they are entirely well. The Red Cross society, seeking to remedy this, has built a "convalescentß' home," where all uniformed patients will be received and cared for. It is built on a sheltered spot on the presidio. The California Red Cross so ciety has as well a field hospital at Manila with a corps of trained nurses, and an equipment of 125 beds. They are also supplying the government hos pital ship, sent to Manila, with delica cies, medicines, etc. With so many projects on hand, assistance from ev ery quarter is needed. The letter was in answer to one writ ten by Mrs. Park Ritchie, proffering the assistance of the local society. In resiponse to this request, a box will be immediately prepared for ship ping. To make the necessary articles, more help is needed in the sewing rooms, and friends of the boys at Ma nila are asked to come In and lend their assistance. Mrs. Thomas Cochran had charge of the sewing at the local headquarters yesterday. She was assisted by Gen. Si'bley Circle No. 6, G. A. R. The following ladies were there: Mesdames Fry, Lewark, E. T. Jones, Freeman, St. Clalr, Floy, Hinton, M-athews, Johnson, Smith and Misses L. Anderson and Pattee. At the desk Mrs. A. P. Moss received the fol lowing contributions: One bolt of Beer sucker from Mrs. Codhran and one bolt of seersucker from Mrs. Park Ritchie. This will be made into pajamas. Old muslin was received from Mrs, George L. Becker. The society sent to St. Luke's hospital twelve night shirts, eight dozen hospital napkins and a quantity of old muslin and lkien. The Ladles' Aid society sent $10 to the German-American Red Cross so ciety yesterday. Mra. Theo. Koch and Mrs. Constans were in charge of the sewing. They were assisted by Dia mond Lodge No. 116, Degree of Honor. Mrs. Stamm and Mrs. J. W. Edgerton visited Betheßda hospital yesterday and found that nurses sufficient to care for the soldier patients had been en gaged, and the sick soldiers were beingr well cared for. LIKES HIS ATTRACTIONS. Secretary Randall Visits lirtva and Sees the Gaideless Pacer*. Secretary Randall has just returned from a trip to lowa, made in the in terest of the coming fair, and he re ports prospects of a big attendance fKan law*. The people ot that «Ut« have heard about the programme, thanks to the Twin City dailies— on which the people rely for the latest news — and they mean to take advan tage of the low railroad rates and see what a real live state fair is. While in lowa, Mr. Randall had an opportunity to see the five "Guideless Pacing Wonders" make a race. These races are a part of the state fair's daily amusement programme, filling In the intervals between heats of the trot ting contest. The "guideless" pacers do all that Is claimed for them, and the races are as exacting as they are won derful. In the race witnessed by Mr. Randall, they made the race without a skip. One of them got a'little ahead of the two which had the pole side and crowded them into the fence to get the pole, In true jockey fashion. In the meantime another one outside of her had gotten a little ahead and she made a great spurt of speed to re gain lost ground. But the most wonderful part, as showing the training of the horses and their intelligence, was the fact that, after passing under "the wire, without any word from the trainer, the.y, ajl turned and came back to the stand and grouped themselves about the trainer, who fed each a lu,mp of sugar and sent them to their grooms. Before the horses were half way round, ev erybody on the grand stand was up and watching the race with intense in terest. By the time the half-mile po&t was reached the crowd went wild, and from that time until the finish the air was full of hats and handkerchiefs — a scene of excitement and enthusi asm seldom seen at a race. The trainer is no other than Dr. Oarver, whose marvelous feats of horsemanship and rifle shooting from horseback at a gallop furnished very pleasant entertainment at the state fair of 18S6. The "guideless wonders" will be a popular feature of every afternoon's entertainment before the grand stand during fair week. NOT ON HOMESTEADS. River Front Improvements Have to Pay a Realty Tax. The publication, of the return of taxes from Ramsey county and the showing made under item 28 attracted some at tention from people who interested themselves. Item 28 covers the assess ment of persons who own improve ments on public lands. The item show ed an assessed valuation of suoh im provements at upwards of thirty thou sand dollars. It was clear that there were no longer homesteads In this county having any such amount of im provements. Assessor Seng yesterday explained the item. "We make ttae return in that form for the assessment of people occupy ing land under federal control, just as though they were on homesteads. There are no homesteads, in that sense, in the county. The assessed persona are the occupants of the property held by the government along the water front. There is quite a good deal of this ground that has been made by the lowering of the river. The Pabst warehouse, the Diamond Jo freight oheds and other buildings along the levy are of this clairs, and on the other side of the river there are some im portant enterprises located on these government lands, the Home and Danz concern, for instance, and the Gedney Pickling works. The occupants pay some sort of nominal rental to the government and we assess them for their Improvements. HEDGEE HEDGED IN AGAIN. "London Sliotvr" Advance Blan Is Committed to Jail. Maurice Hedgee was arraigned in the police court again yesterday charg ed with obtaining money under false pretenses. The case was continued un til this morning and Hedgee commit ted to jail. The gentlemen who have been inter esting themselves in Hedgee's behalf have weakened somewhat, and yester day Joseph T. Schusler, who had be friended the so-called advance agent for "Bailey's Big London Show," and endeavored to secure his release, was willing to sign a complaint against Hedgee. Hedgee belongs to the same secret order Schusler is connected with, and since his arrest gave Schusler the grand hailing sign of distress and made a borrow of $25 in cash. The police say that Hedgee recently served a short sentence in the Minne apolis workhouse for the same kind of work which he attempted in St. Paul. AS SO OFT BEFORE. "Wife Refuses to Prosecute a Hus band for Assault. O. S. Schroeder was arraigned in the police court yesterday morning charg ed with assault with a dangerous weapon. Tuesday evening Dr. Arzt was called to the Schroeder residence at Florida and Rutland streets to at tend Mrs. Schroeder. The woman informed the doctor that she had been beaten by her husband, and Dr. Arzt notified the police that she was severely injured. Schrcreder was arrested and on the strength of the statements made by the physician he was charged with assault. Mrs. Schroeder, however, surprised the physician and also the police by appearing in court and requesting that her husband be not punished. Judge Hine let the fellow go after he had signed a bond to keep the peace. TAKEN BACK TO HASTINGS. Herbert Bricket Charged With a Larceny at Greenvale. Herbert Bricket, a youth . from Da kota county, was arrested yesterday by Detective Campbell on a warrant charging him with larceny in the first degree. Bricket, who is eighteen years old, is charged with having stolen a bicy cle valued at $25 and a watch valued at $15 from the residence of Patrick Mulligan, at Greenvale, Dakota county, Tuesday night. The prisoner was taken to Hastings last evening for trial by a deputy sher iff from that city. Bricket denies the charge. FOUND 2,500 ALREADY. Policemen Sceia to Have Sbarper IS yes Than Assessors. The collection of the dog license tax is keeping the deputies in the office of the city clerk busy. Yesterday $174 was received. Dog License Inspector Salntong re ceived yesterday the census taken by the police in the Rondo station dis trict. The number of dogs listed in this district was 2,500. The dog catchers will be started on their rounds Monday. NOT LIKE ST. PATRICK. Pine City People* Are Opposed to Dammiais Hie Snake. Senator P. A.iHei3ge, of Pine City, Is anxious to secure an, Injunction against the building of' the Snake river dam near that place. The dam waa recently washed out, and as it is claimed that it backed up the water for eighteen miles, doing serious damage to farming lands as well as breeding disease, some of Mr. Hedge's constituents desire its recon struction prohibited.
