Wilkinson as he has moved around the streets among the people find it difficult to realize that he is now in his coffin and that the Bullet of a North American Indian placed him there. This Ls no time for indulgence in hu ruors connected with a campaign of so serious results. Maj. Wilkinson and the subordinates in his command who i died in the conflict at Leech Lake are ; as much eniitiel to monumental honors ; as if -Uie-y had fallen at Santiago or on the hills of San Juan. The only re fit ction of dishonor in connection with this whole affair is upon the war de partment a.t Washington. Gov. Clough has spe ken to that department in a very forcible manner. He has uttered , the voice cf Minnesota. The govern ment at Washington, through the war department management, has stigma tized itpelf a.s incapacitated for a great emergency. Over and over again has the lesson been taught to the war department th:ot the Indian is a thing that cannot be trifled with. He is a bad man in his relations to civilized government. Unless he is completely overawed by numbers, when it comes to a conflict, no point can be made against him. He fights in ambush. This is his method of fighting. He is a sneak and a cow a d and no amount of poetry or religious sentiment can bring him to a different position. The figure of the noble sav age has tong ago departed from history. He has refused to accept the best offers of education and civilization. He has • ; ii ted in his spirit of treachery. He har. cost many valuable lives; and the end is not yet. Now we are told by Gen. Bacon that a winter campaign Ls necessary to sub due this ugly tribe of the North. In competent hands the campaign ought not to last a fortnight. The trouble is the control of things at Washington, in the war department, is not in com petent hands. Tbis outbreak had its origin in whisky. The people can review the record. A miserable redskin refused to give un the name of his tempter. Re sult, Maj. Wilkinson and a number of comrades are resting on their biers to day. What a shame! How can Chris tian people go to the sacramental table and at the same time feel that there 13 a God ln Israel? A Whitewashing Farce. It is quite evident, from the reports that are coming in day by day from the commission appointed by President McKinley to unearth the scandals con nected with the war department man agement of the troops in their camps and hospitals, that a nice little dish of half-cooked preserves Is to be handed out to the people of the country In the nature of a relish. The appointment of Grenvllle M. Dodge as the president of that commission ought to have been a sufficient notice to the country that whitewash was in the pot, and that it was to be applied very freely for the benefit of the entire gang. Let us look back a little while and recall the relations of Gen. Dodge to tl ings that have gone before. He was a good soldier; nobody will doubt that. He became chief engineer of the Union Pacific railroad, and his relations with Jay Gould and Sidney Dillon are well remembered facts. But now, as we go nosing ai>out, we are able to discover a certain relation ship which he had in the past to Gen. Alger. Gen. Alger has always been am bitious to be president of the United States. In 18S.S, when John Sherman waa a candidate for the presidency, Gen. Alger precipitated himself upon the convention and, through the al leged purchase of a good many votes i by George E. Spencer from Southern territory, he managed, not to elect him- B4 If, but to defeat the nomination of Mr. Sherman, and Benjamin Harrison came into the field. Mr. Harrison was nominated and elected and served four years as president of the United States. Dodge and Spencer were good friends, meanwhile, and both friends of Alger. Will Gen. Alger deny the fact that to George E. Spencer, formerly a so called "carpetbag" senator of the United States from Alabama, he made certain deliberate propositions on a hotel porch in Southern California locking* to the purchase of the votes of the delegates to the Chicago conven tion in 1888? We don't pause for a reply. Spencer is dead. George E. Spencer and Grenville M. Dodge were two men about as closely associated with things on this earth, of a peculiar quality, as any men could be. The relationship of Alger to Dodge is, in the language of Rudyard Kip ling, "another question." Stephen B. Elkins was secretary of war in Presi dent Harrison's cabinet. Possibly we may recognize a little cheek by jowl in his relations to Gen. Dodge. But we dent want to make insinu-a- THE ST. PAUL GLOBE— SUNDAY OCTOBER 9, 1893. tions. We only hope that the pail of whitewash will not be too blue-streaked with imported indigo. We would like to see the whitewash plainly put on, without any artificial discoloration. It is bound to come, and no sensible man has thought of anything else since the commission was appointed. l*x libit of Home Industries. If it is true that a prophet is not without honor save in his own coua try, it is often just as true that a coun try is not without honor save among its own people. Not that a country 01 city lacks the spirit of patriotism, but they often fail to give It expression in the patronage of their own industries. Citizens send away for things when the same goods, and frequently of a su perior quality, could be secured within the city. It should be said, however, In justice to buyers, that tbe slight is not due to malicious intention, but to the fact that the quantity and quality of home goods have not been thoroughly ex ploited. The exploitation of St. Paul industries and arts will be made in the splendid exhibit to be opened in Mar ket hall this week. The executive committee of the Uadies' Auxiliary has been hard at work for months, and the result of its efforts will be not only a surprisingly gratifying array of home manufac tures, but a series of attractive enter tainments, planned for the entire ex position. Furthermore, the chairmen have appointed members of their com mittees to take charge of the several departments so that visitors may find prompt answers to their queries. This division of labor will render the service satisfactory to the public and make it comparatively easy for each member, providing no appointee fails in her duty. The rapidity with which the exhibits are now coming in and the fact that they all represent home interests are sufficient guaranty of a generous patronage. Look Out ior Heme Interests. The Democrats have always been loyal to St. Paul, and have produced the only true leaders in the interests of the city that have ever sat in the leg islature. The Republicans occasionally send a good man to the capitol. but the ordinary Republican representative is too busy with private bills to give any attention to the requirements of the city. It is incumbent on the people to elect this fall such a delegation to the legislature from Ramsey counLy as will Insure recognition for the county. The material for that purpose is not ap parent in the Republican legislative ticket. The time has come for St. Paul to look closely after her own interests in the legislature, and the only way that can be done is to elect well Informed and capable men to the legislative body. The utter absurdity of sending such men as Andrew Holm, lodging house keeper; Walter Boyd, bailiff in a justice shop; Peter Thauwald, of the Fifth ward, and other men of that class to the legislature and expecting them to get a hearing before a legislative body will occur to most people. It is the personality of the individual, not his political preference, that makes the efficient legislator. Stevens and the City. Frederick C. Stevens was the presi dent of the defunct Minnesota Savings bank— the institution that failed with liabilities of $200,000 and assets of $1. At the time of the failure of the bank the city was a creditor of the institu tion in the sum of $10,000. On page 26 of his last annual report Comptroller McCardy says: "Judgment has been taken against the Minnesota Savings bank and its bondsmen for the balance ln that bank." Every taxpayer in St. Paul Is a judg ment creditor of Congressman Stevens. He was the responsible head of the broken bank. Congressman Stevens wants to add to his obligations to the city to the ex tent of another term in congress. Will the people listen to this brazen appeal to their good nature? It now appears that some unfeeling Democrats in Pennsylvania propose to send Matt. Quay to jail. They charge him and his son with misusing the funds of the state. The question will naturally arise, in the minds of people who know nothing of Quayism, how could the senator get the monies of the state, of which he was not an officer, into his hands? It is a part of the Republican system that people out of politics do not know much about—this dipping into the treasury for the bene fit of the boss. It was part of the price of the election of the state treasurer of Pennsylvania that the man given the office by Quay should place the state money in the Quay line of banks. The exposure of Quay, if it be complete, cannot fall of having a sanitary effect on the country, for the commonwealth of Pennsylvania has been boss-rideu as no other state in the Union has. The Globe hereby warns Bog-ah ma-Geshig, O-Ten-a-Gon, Ob-Dis^an e-Kershing and the rest of the Pillagers that pretty soon It will quit printing their names, even as an evidence of good faith, and suggests that ,thoy ap pear before the legislature next winter and get some nice, new names like Sev-Cum-Lev, Bing-Binger and Goff- Sox. Perhaps Chief Bog-ah-ma-Ge.~hig ought to meet and marry Queen Liliuo kalani. Neither is ruler over anything in particular, and neither would lose anything by tha change of name. How some American girls do soar! The divorced wife of Gen. Cassius M. Clay proceeded, a month after getting her papers, to get married to a saw mill hand and farm laborer. In 1894 Pine county raised ashes enough to make ten million pottnds of soap. This year it raised 500,000 pounds of honey. How's that for diversifying the crops? This would be a good time for the ducks to "duck." Some of the best shots In St. Paul are out looking for them. Hold the battleship Illinois for a few days, Mr. Long. Minnesota may need her. As the campaign warms up the e^g of commerce ripens for the fray. Perhaps Oregon has secured a pure senator. His name is Simon. The real name of Mr. Corbett, of Ore gon, seems to be Dennkj. And now the reds are blua. EPISTLES TO ST. PAUL Dar Reese addressed a Republican meet ing in St. Peter Thursday night. He arrived la Julius B'm k's town in the afternoon and was met at th 0 depot by Block, Editor Cowles, of the Journal, and other representa tive Republicans. The day was fair for a carriage drive- about town, and, of course ; to that interesting establishment, the insane hospital. Dar was much interested ln the hospital and lnsisiod 011 going through all the wards. HLs Interest was subdued very speedily. In on* of the halls, in the female department, a woman rushed up to him, threw both arms around his neck, and exclaimed: "Oh, Charles! I knew you wou'.d come. You will nerer forsake me again, will you, my husband?" ".My dear madam," said Dar, startled by the encounter, and seeking to disengage him- Belf from the embrace, "you havo mad* a mistake; I am not your husband." 'Why, Char.es, how can you say that— and after leaving me alone with our three children?" "I am sorry, but really you are mistaken," reiterated Dar. After a shower of tears, the unfortunate woman became angry with her supposed recreant husband and threatened to do him bodily harm unless he reformed. Dar was willing to cut hia sightseeing trip short. "He's a lobster," remarked Frank Griggs, referring to an eminent gentleman at the other ade of the council chamber. John Selb made an addition to the colloquial riches of the vernacular. "He is," said Mr. Selb; "he ought to be canned." "In what particular ls Sam Lowenstein unlike Gen. Weyler?" asked J. Franklin George, of the Lincoln club. He gave it up. "Well," said the Joyous J. Frankle. "when I got after Sam he walked Spanish and when Lee got after Weyler he talked Spanish— to his typewriter." Ben Lodge, comedian of the Dorothy Mor ton Opera company, here recently, is one of the best raconteurs who has been in St. Paul in latter days. One of Ben's stories pertains to the adventure of a philanthropic Celt, who was solicited by a neighbor's wife to look for her husband, who had beea missing for two or three days. With great complaisance, Casey started on HERE, THERE, EVERYWHERE. It cannot have escaped the notice of those who pay any attention to what is going on in the world of commerce that we are now threatened with competition from a quarter whence we hardly expected it. Only a elnrt time ago it was the fashion to ral^o Uie cry of German competition; and co watchful have we been of that bogey that we seem to have overlooked the more formidable rival across the Atlantic. We havo no intention of tak ing up the role of alarmists, for indeed we do not, like some of our contemporaries, see much cause for immediate alarm; but It would be foolish to Ignore the fact that Brit ish industry seems likely to fee pressed much harder iv the future by America than by Germany. Nearly every day w© are confront ed with premonitory signs of a coming con test, and these recur with increasing foic?. It is needless to trace how this competition from the United Statos has bo<in called into existence. That it already exists ls patent to the most; careless observer, aud that lt will grow in strength may be safely enough p^ dicted. The present condition of trade in tho United Kingdom is generally good, but let us take care that we are not thereby lulled inti a mistaken sense of security. There is danger in feeling over-confidenL When trade takes a turn for the worse, we may find ourselves face to face with a rivalry that we cannot easily dislodge.— The Trade Journal's Review, "Manchester, Eng. It is nothing that a ship cr twr>, und:r exist ing laws, has been added to the American merchant marine during the present decade— such laws as those will never restore tha American merchant marine. As Senator Frye— the father of American shipping legis lation in the senate of the United States well said a few years ago, when spoaking of our merchant marine: "The disease is dead ly, and the remedy must be drastic." Sen ator Hanna must be ready to advocate a drastic policy, not a temporary or inoff<?ctive palliative. No man ever p:\ss*7ss:d a grand er opportunity to do as much for the nation as does Senator Hanna, if ho becomes tho chief eponser for an effective plan which thj nation will approve of and sustain, that wiii take from foreign ships the carrying of our foreign commerce, for which we pay them annually more than $300,000,100, and turn that enormous tribute into tho pockets of Ameri can ship owners, and through them, into the hands of American shipbuilders, rolling mill owners, coal and iron ere miners.— Seaboard. There appears to be an organized influence at work ln Washington that is operating through the correspondents of a number of the Hannacrat papers. It favors the creating of a new cabinet oflice. These corresuond- Poems That Tickle. Ben King haa been dead some four years, but the bright bits of verse that he scattered become more popular every day. The humor of his writing is so essentially American that he might easily have been the first In his line of writing had he lived. His song of "The Pessimist" has been given so many renditions that it may not be amiss to give lt in its entirety. It will be readily connected "tyith Longfellow's poems: Nothing to do but work, Nothing to eat but food, Nothing to wear but clothes JTo keep one from going nudfc Nothing to breathe but air, Quick as a flash 'tis gone. Nowhere to fall but off, Nowhere to stand but on. Nothing to comb but hair, Nowhere to sleep but in bed. Nothing to weep but tears, Nothing to bury but dead. Nothing to sing but songs. Ah, well, alas, alack! Nowhere to go but out. Nowhere to come but back. Nothing to see but sights, Nothing to quench but thirst, Nothing to havo but what we've got; Thus through life we're cursed. Nothing to strike but a gait; Everything moves that goes; Nothing at all but common sense Can ever withstand these woes. •Most newspaper scribblers were familiar with "If I Should Die Tonight" long before King wrote his, during the World's fair. But the rest of them have been forgotten since thia appeared: If I should die tonight, And you should come to my cold corpse and say, Weeping aud heartsick o'er my lii'eleiS clay— And if I sbou',d die tonight And ycu should come in deepest grief and woe And say, "'Here that (ten dollars that I owa"— I might arise* ln my lar?e whi.e cravat And ear, "What's that?" If I should die tonight And ycu s'muld come to my cold corpse and kneel, Clasping my bjer to. show the grief you feel— I say, if 1 should die tonight And you s'houfd come to me end there and then ; Just oven hint of paying me that ten, 1 might rise the while; But I'd drop dead again. Here ls another thing of Klrg's on a Heme that has boon overworked and certainly the best of them all: Tboy stood en the bridge at midnkht In a park Cot far from town— They stood on t'ne br dge at midnight Becau.-e they didn't sit down. The moon rose o'er the city Behind the dcrk churcii t.pire. The moon rose over the city And kept on rising hig'^er. How v ofteu, oh, how often. They whispered words so soft- How ofteu, oh, how oft; n. How often, ob. how oft! The maid aud the cactus p'aat was a fa- the search, ln spite of a cough which racked his frame, seemingly from head* to foot, at frequent intervals. "Sure I think he's dead lntolre'.y," she had told him. But Casey looked first in all the saloons. As a last resort he sought the morgue. There were three bodies on the slabs, and Pat looked them over in vain. "That's a bad tough you have," exclaimed the morgue keeper as the disappointed vis itor started to leave the dreary place. "Well, perhaps," responded Casey, felici tously, "but any one of thim three fellies 'd be mighty glad to have that same cough." A candiate on the Repubdliean county tick et was approached Friday by a First ward man who was never known to do a day's work in his life, and asked if he would in dorse a note "for $75. He said, kindly but firmly, that he would indorse no notes. Then the fellpw thought that he could get along with a cash loan of $"i 5. That would not do at all, and thero was no chance to negotiate the loan. "It don't make any difference at all," said the First ward man; "of course I'm for you — but say, haven't you got an overcoat that you don't need?" Ho didn't even get the overcoat, and tho candidate remarked that it was the second time he had been approached by men who started in with a good-sized note and wanted to compromise on old clothes. Walker Whiteside tells this one: While traveling through the South this season dur ing tho prevalence of tho yellow fever, he was cautioned to be very particular as to the purity of the drinking water. He was stopping over at a small town, and being unable to obtain any mineral water, he was forced to drink the water furnished by the hotel— water which was anything but clear.

REAL WAR STORIES. The disposition of the average American to see something funny in the most serious sit uations in life helped many a poor fellow to forget his troubles even in the hosDitals in Cuba and at Camp Wikoff and on the trans ports. Tho men of the Th'rd infantry cam; north from Santiago on the Yale. A aoort many of them were very 111, but when it was announced that orders had been received di recting the return of the regiment to this country the fellows who were in hosDiu-l.s dragged themselves out and made a biave front before the examining surgeons. Tln.se who were the worst off physically made al most superhuman efforts to stand up before the surgeons and show that they were not too badly off to bo removed. They knew that if they were left in Cuba their chances for life were reduced. An mc. dent Is told of one who crawled off his blanket and made shift to stand upright to meet the surgeon. The examining surgeon was closing hia eyes as far as he could, for he had no desire to leave any of the mtn be hind, but when he got to this particular case he saw he would have to keep his eyes closed. The poor fellow who was being examined could eearcely speak, but he insisted tbat he had never felt better In his life, that his fever had left him and he had a good appe tite. The surgeon shook his head, but passed the man. lie had Dot turned his back before the poor fellow had fallen iv a faint a^d au hour later was in the graep of a delirium that could only have one result. The sailors on tho Yale were generally Eng lishmen, members of the usual crew used ln the transatlantic service. They didn't like their job of acting as stewards to a lot of sick Yankees. They were overworked and kept up night and day, aud were not ln the best humor. A couple of them were on the main deck of the ship condoling with each other and condemning tho eyes and limbs of all Yankees, particularly of sick Yankee sol diers. They stood just ln front of where Drum Major McGuffln. of the Third, had stretched his six feet and odd of very sick Yankee soldier. He was reposing on his knapsack and blanket in the shade, and his gun lay alongside of him. In spite of his apathy he was bothered by the remarks of the Englishmen. When they had exhausted hia patience he raised up on his elbow and remarked : "Get to out of here the pair of you, or I'll break your British heads." "Hullo, Bill," said one of the sailors, "the bloomin' old ghost is gettin' cocky fer 'iniself " McGuffln made one effort, grabbed his gun and made a smash with the butt of it at the Bailors. Fortunately It missed them and he escaped being held for murder — which, he says, he would gladly have committed in his then frame of mind. On the Yale the scarcity of decent drinking water caused a great deal of suffering. A ration of water was served to every man, and the water served was of an awful ciuality, and so warm that the only way it could be used was to hang it up in a canteen in the wind until it had cooled to the temperature of the air. Once a day all the men lined up and wont past the spot amidships where the water was served. One of the men relates a joke that was played on him by one of the sailors. He was waiting in line, when a sailor came along and asked him why ho didn't help himself out of a tap that stuck out of a bulkhead. He answered that ha thought it would not be permitted. "That'll bo all right," says Jaeky, and the soldier filled h'.s canteen from the tap. He took it up to his quarters nnd hung lt in the wind. When he tried to drink It a couple of hours later he, found that it was sea water. He had to go without water for twenty-fcur hours, so the jcke was a brutal one. There has been very little said or written about the army chaplain at the front, but the men of the Third are full of praises for Father Hart, post chaplain at Snelling. Father Hart did not go with the regiment to the front, being assigned to another com mand, but he was frequently with the beys Chronological Record of St. Paul. The first telegraph message was sent from St. Paul Aug. 21, 1860, on the completion of the flrst telegraph line by Jatne:* M. W'nsow, of this city. The St. Paul city library opened for busi ness in Its new quarters on the tp floor of the city hall and court house June 17, 1889.

The lire extended from Wabasha street to Duluth aveuue, on Dayton's bluff.

Alfred Henry Lewis, ln Monday's Telegraph, gives a fairly accurate pen picture of Dick Croker. but in a quoted conversation Croker gives us a better idea of hini=*oif: "What do you call a great man?" asked Croker. We were at the table awaiting our dinner at the time. "There are 'so many kinds of greatness," I replied, "that description Is difficult; I could give you an an example. Take Tom Reed. I don't like him; moreover, I think he's as crooked as a dog's hind leg. Yet he's un doubtedsiy a great man— a very great man." '•I don't think ro," retorted Croker. "Rer-d's not true to his friends)'' "Treason to one's friends," I argued, "is a frequent earmark of greatness. Some men couldn't be great if they were true to their friends." "Well, that's net my notion of a great man," insisted Croker. "My idea of a great man ls one who is never dishonest; who is never tho coward; who wheu he gives you his hand give 1 ? you his. Jife, and. i;ome fair weather or foul, stays by his colors and wins with his friends or loses and dies with his friends. That's my idea of greatness." There Is not a man on the press of New York, however he may write, who does not recognize how Irue this 13 of Croker. He never forgets his friends, and I hardly think that he forgets his enemies, either. This In Cuba, and cheerod many a poor fellow who needed his ministrations.

Every day there came down from New York a lot of iadies who wanted to do what they could for sick men, and uiey used to como around and voluuteer to write letters," continued the big man. "A lellow from th.* Twelfth in fantry waa ln a cot near mine. He had been pretty bad, and was out of his head most of the time. On© day a lady jut in an appear ance and asked if we wanted any letters writ ten. This fellow sad he wanted somebody to write for him. that he had something on his mind.
