THE POLICE HOMICIDE.
Within a day or two past a Minneapolis
policeman shot and killed a citiaen who,
being suspected of having stolen prop
erty in his possession, and being afraid
evidently of arrest by a policeman, ran
away. It is only a few months ago since
a em-responding .-as.- happened in the
same city, the policeman being removed,
If we remember rightly, as the result of
itis misconduct. Within a few weeks
another policeman, of this city, having a"
suspicion that a certain citizen had jew
elry in his possession that he had not
come by honestly, shot and wounded
the flying suspect in the spine, inflicting
on him serious injury.
It will be observed that In no one of :
these three cases of murderous assault ''
by police officers was the victim of police
firearms under arrest, or known to be a
crimhf_l, and in none of them was the
policeman armed with a warrant. •
We believe there Is a rule of law that
no police officer has the riant to arrest a
citizen without a warrant unless he has
personal knowledge of the commission of
a crime by the person arrested. Now, if
a citizen does not choose to stand quietly
by and submit to arrest, or grows ner
vous and runs away from the prospect
of being charged with a crime, either
assuming that he be innocent or guilty,
does thai give a right to a policeman to
assault that man with a deadly weapon,
and. so far as one may judge by results,
with intent to kill that man?
This is a very serious question. Dress
any vulgar, brutally disposed fellow in a
little brief authority, and he is liable at
any moment to run to violent excesses
in the exercise of his authority. The
Globe does not believe that there was
the slightest warrant whatever for the
bloody assault made in any one of these
cases. In each case the assault was
made, too, by an official created to pro
tect the lives and property of citizens,
and to preserve the peace. Assuming
that the man who has just been killed
by a policeman's bullet in Minneapolis
did as a matter of fact come dishonestly
by the copper wire or whatever he had
in his possession, and was about to dis
pose of it. knowing it to have been dis
honestly obtained, it was none the less
an atrocious crime on the part of that
policeman to kill him, and he ought to
be prosecuted and jailed for his murder
The recent case in St. Paul is the same
in principle.. The officer who shot a citi
zen said to have been trying to dispose
of jewelry not his own ought now to be
behind prison bars. Not one of such men
is fitted to hold a policeman's baton for a
moment. Not one of them should be al
lowed to remain in public employment
of any kind. The right of every citizen
to a policeman's protection, until he is
formally charged with crime or until he
is known to have been engaged in the
commission of crime, ought not to be
Questione- for a moment. Would it riot
have been infinitely more to the advance
ment of justice that all three of these
men, assuming them to be guilty of the
Offenses of which they were suspected,
should have escaped arrest, or should
have subjected the police authorities to
a lit:!- extra trouble to discover their
whereabouts In the future, than that
they should have been shot down as they
were, like dogs, on the public thorough
Americans have a very decided respect
for all the agencies and representatives,
of the law; and will in- the majority of
eases be disposed" to pass over such oc
currences by regarding them as deplor
able mistakes. Such a view of any seri
ous invasion of the personal rights of the
citizen by a public official should not,
however, be tolerated for a moment.
Committed in England the crime of any
one of these policemen would secure him
a stiff term of. years of Imprisonment
at -hard labor. Happening in; American
cities, however, they will be dismissed
without any action whatever.
FINISH IT IP.
There remain some $4,000 or $5,000 yet
to be raised by St. Paul before we have
succeeded in raising our quota of the
amount necessary to bring back our sol
diers. Considering the progress already
made it -ought not to be difficult to ac
complish the unfinished part of the task.
But it should •be closed up this week.
Other cities are closing up. ' St. Paul
should do likewise.
Let the ensuing week see the end. The
work has thus far been done by a com->
paratively few'men. Individual citizens,
not members of committees or officially
identified with the movement, can finish
the undertaking in the necessary time,
of themselves, if they wish.
It has now become a matter of local
pride. Minneapolis is reported to have
secured $9,500, while Stillwater is repre
sented as having withdrawn her sales of
badges, having accomplished her share
in the undertaking. St. Paul cannot af
ford to let the matter drag. This week
should see $10,000 or over realized.
The moneys already received represent
the contributions of but a small fraction
of our people. We can subscribe the bal
ance and still leave the bulk of our popu
lation unassessod. Surely the young men
who signed their enlistment papers ln
St. Paul have enough friends'here to
bring the sum total up to the necessary
amount without much further ado.
Let us all then unite in a final effort.
Let us insist on our respective friends
who can well afford, and who are not
supplied with them, each buying find
wearing a badge. We have already
brought the boys more than one-half the
distance to their homes. Let us see to It
that before another week has passed the i
whole distance will be covered. j
EVERYBODY SHOULD BE THERE.
A little more than four years ago there
came to St. Paul a young man not un
known to fame for the purpose of reviv
ing interest in base ball-, then in a state
of collapse so far as the Minnesota cap
ital was concerned. In spite of the
wrecks of the past he fearlessly put his
money into the enterprise, and for five
seasons, counting the one just now clos
ing, he has given St. Paul a base-ball
team. Let it be recorded, too, that this
club has during four of these seasons
been in the first division of the Western
league, on one occasion being : second.
During the season of 1899 the club has
failed to meet the expectations of a good
portion of the people, and there is a good
deal of what is known in sporting cir
cles as "-soreness" over the condition of
things. The showing of the club, how
ever, Is not. half bad when it is consid
ered that until recently the race has
been one of the closest on record, and
that the St. Paul team has lost a great
many games by mere ill luck. This was
notably true of the Detroit series of the
past week, every one of which was won
by the visitors in the closing inning.
Mr. Comiskey has put his money into
base ball in St. Paul cheerfully, has al
ways conducted himself in a sportsman
like manner, and has made a constant
honest effort to land his team victor.
That he has not done so this season is
due, in part, at least, to the frowns of
Dame Fortune. As this is the last day
of the regular season here,, everybody ;
interested in., the national sport . should*
make a special effort to be at the game
to give the management the "glad hand"
and to extend to Mr. Comiskey the wish
that he may pilot another St. Paul team
in the season of 1900.
During the past week the weather in
Minnesota has been delightful. After the
sun had been up an hour or two one
could work outside quite comfortably
without-an overcoat; and some were even
seen in their shirt sleeves.

THE ST. PAUI. GLOBE, WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 30, 1899.
AT THE THEATERS.
The works of some of the greatest
German composers- formed the basis of
the programme for the Banda Rossa
concert at the Metropolitan last night,
and the result was a feast of music.
Where everything was so exceptionally
good lt would be difficult to make any
distinction as to excellence, but the se
lections which- will live longest in tha
memories of last night's audience will
undoubtedly be Mendelssohn's "Songs
Without Words," and the "Gloria" from
Mozart's Twelfth Mass. . -.
The programme for the matinee this
afternoon will be of the popular order,
and for the balance of the week as fol«
lows: This evening, Verdi; Thursday,
Wagner; Friday, modern Italian; Sat
urday matinee. Wagner, and Saturday
night, popular programme.
The regular season at the Metropolitan
opera house opens next Sunday night
with Hoyt's "A Black Sheep" as the
state fair week attraction. . A special
Labor day matinee will be given Mon
day afternoon. *
A telegram received by Manager Ellery
last night at the Metropolitan opera
house states that the Banda Rossa has
; been selected as one of the bands for the
| Dewey celebration in New York th*
week of Sept. 25.
Mathews and Bulger's "By th Sad
Sea Waves" has evidently caught th'
fancy of the town. Last evening, In spite
of the continued hot spell, another large
audience paid tribute to the fun-making
abilities of these clever comedians. The
i farce-comedy is the best that has ap
peared at the Grand for a good many
I seasons. The new song, "A Japanese

I Shenandoah" will be the attraction at

is now a tremendous military spectacle,
with stirring and realistic pictures of war
presented on a gigantic scale. The
shrieking of the shells, the whistling of
the balls, the crashing of the bombs. %he
calls of the dying, the fierceness of the
maddened soldiers, all are made Into a
real live spectacle. Throughout the en
tire play are the most charming bits of
comedy, and particularly in the last act
does the wit sparkle and ripple. But in

Mrs. Carola Hegen, living on Stickney
street, Just outside the city limits, was
thrown from a carriage in a runaway late
yesterday afternoon at the south end of
the Wabasha street bridge and severely
injured. She was taken to the city hos

The senator formerly lived in St. Paul,

Gilggs and Foster, some ten years ago.
Senator Foster was at the Ryan over
night and will make a trip to Northern
Wisconsin today, where he will visit a
saw mill in which he is interested. He
was asked by .the Globe for his views
as to the desirability of the Philippines
as a possession. He stated that every

And the silent wait,
Back to my line and hook.
I wish I could wade by the water's edge,
Where the fallen leaves drift by;
Just to see, in the shadow of the ledge,
How dark forms glide, like a woodman's
Through driftwood piles and the coarse

And to hear the bittern cry.
Back where the tadpoles shift and
Back where the bullfrogs sob;
Back just to float
In the leaky boat,
Back to my dripping bob.

SMS IT IS ME TO OTIS
REV. PETER M'QUEEN ON THE SIT
' UATION IN THE PHILIP
MILITARY COMMANDER WEAK
It Is Declared That. His Policy En
courages Filipinos to Vigorous
Resistance— Gen. Lawton Could
Have Ended the' War Many
Months Ago Had He Been Per
mitted to Carry Out His Wishes.
SAN FRANCISCO, Cal., Aug 29.-"The
war m the Philippines should " have end
ed long ago," said Rev. Peter Mac Queen,
pastor of the Day Street Congregational
church, of Boston. He is the author of
"Around the World With the Flag,", and
is chief of staff for the -volume, "Cam
paigning in the Philippines." He has been
in the Islands for some time, collecting
data for publication, and carried creden
tials from President McKinley, the war
department and a letter of introduction
from Col. Roosevelt to Admiral Dewey.
"The weakness of the whole affair in
the Philippines," said Mr. Mac Queen, "is
in having Gen. Otis act as military and
civil governor. He never saw the firing
lines and has no personal knowledge of
the exigencies of the situation. He can
not direct military operations successful
ly and attend to his executive duties at
the same time; he has not the capacity.
In my six months' stay I found not one
man who would say that Gen. Otis is a
competent officer. There are a few who
desire his retention as civil governor, but
for financial reasons only.
"I have the most positive and convinc
ing evidence that .if Gen. Lawton had
been permitted to carry cut his desires
on the 25th of March the war would have
been practically ended. There is not a
Filipino in the island that wants the
American form of government. There
was a time when the conquest of the Isl
ands might have been completed with
comparatively little bloodshed and that
was Immediately after Dewey's victory.
Since that time the policy has been such
as to encourage their resistance. You are

"Gen. Lawton told me that they are
as brave a race of people as he ever met.
Their policy of making a show of holding

Compliment for the Thirteenth.
DULUTH. Aug. 29.-A testimonial to the
: bravery of the Thirteenth Minnesota reg
iment was given Charles A. Towne, who
! is now in Europe. Mr. Towne and his wife
J have been In Europe for some time and
j they entered Naples while the Olympia
| was there with Admiral Dewey. In com
j pany with another American they went

the crack regiment ln the Philippines. I
, This compliment to the Minnesota regi- j
I ment was an especially pleasing one to
Mr. and Mrs. Towne, because at the
time the officers gave it they did not
know that their guests were Minnesota
A letter has just been received here
from Mr. Towne telling of this incident
and he spoke of it with great pride, the
sincerity of the expression being so ab
solutely beyond question.
The letter tells of the visit of the party
to the Olympia in an interesting manner.
As they steamed from the harbor at" Na
ples they had not seen an American flag
for many weeks, when suddenly before
them lay the Olympia in ail the beauty
of her coating of white, and streaming
with the American colors. After they
went on shore they took a small boat and
ran out to the Olympia and went on
board. Admiral Dewey was entertaining
a private party while they were on
board and they did not see him at the
time, but as they were rounding the boat
on their return they saw him, and Mr.
Towne called: <
"Admiral, three Americans salute you."
The admiral responded at once: "Come I
right on board." They told him they had
already been on the ship and regretted
not having been able to shake hands with
him. He smilingly went through the mo
tion from the distance and followed them
as their boat steamed around the Olympia
talking with them all the time.

ONLY A RUMOR.
Story of the Killing of Agminaldo
hy Gen. Pilar.
HAMILTON, 0., Aug. 29.— F. O. Haya
and Z. Tange, Japanses tea merchants of
this* city, today received a copy of the
Chu Kizo Shinko, a newspaper printed in
Nagega, Japan, July 22. which contains a
dispatch from Manila that has not yet
become public in America. Under the
heading "New Philippine Information,"
the paper prints the following:
"In the latter part of June, near San
Fernando, Aguinaldo was killed by Gen.
Plo del Pilar. Pilar visited him to in
quire about the death of Gen. Luna, and
Aguinaldo answered that he never knew
anything about this case, and told Pilar
to mind his own business. Gen. Pilar
then called Aguinaldo a liar, and, pulling
a pistol, shot Aguinaldo in the forehead,
killing him instantly."

FOOD FOR IMPERIALISTS.
Peelings of' Anger. Disgust and
Alarm in the Old World.
To the Editor of the Globe:
Not having seen in the Globe the
following utterances from William T.
Stead, one of Europe's greatest thinkers,
and from Prof. Sumner, of Yale, I pre
sent them for the edification of our Im
perialistic friends. They will furnish
gcod food for reflection for all. Mr.
Stead wrote from Rome, under date of
Nov. 21, 1898, saying:
"The ansVer to the question, 'What
does the old world think of the new
world?' has never been made with great
er emphasis than in the Eternal- City.
The oldest old world regards the newest
new with feelings of anger, disgust and
alarm almost too great for words. The
sentiment of indignation differs in in
tensity, but it is universal. There Is no
sympathy for the United States, either
among whites or blacks; in fact, dislike
of the American seizure of the Philip
pines, and a conviction that the humane
enthusiasm that made the war possible
was a mere mask of cant, assumed in
order to facilitate conquest, are almost
the only sentiments shared in common
by the rival camps of the Quirinal and
the Vatican. * * *
"The friends of America wring their
hands In unaffected grief over the fall- of
the United States, under the temptation
of the lust of territorial expansion. Her
enemies shoot out the lip, and shriek in
derision over what they regard as the
unmistakable demonstration that the de
mand for the Philippines affords of
American cupidity, American bad faith,
and American ambition. * * * The Im
mense majority of Europeans are, of
course, absolutely ignorant of what has
happened. Intent on their daily toll,
they neither know nor care what occurs
in other hemispheres. But the Europeans
who read newspapers, who form what
may be described as the public opinion
of the old world, are practically of one
mind on the matter. * * * There Is in
every country a minority of thoughtful
men, who, having all- their lives been
the staunchest friends of the American
commonwealth, are now confounded and
utterly put to shame at what is univer
sally regarded as the apostacy of the
United States, the abandonment of her
national policy, and the adoption of the
world-policy of conquest.
'When I listened, as I have been listen
ing for months past, to the alternate
taunts and lamentations of the foes and
friends of America, the Babel of voices
seemed at last to merge into one scornful
chorus of welcome to Uncle Sam. r
"'Hell from beneath is moved to thee
to, meet thee at thy coming; It stirreth
up the dead for thee, even all the chief
ones of the earth: it hath raised up from j
their thrones all the nations. All they
shall speak and say unto thee. Art thou ;
also become weak as we? Art thou be
come like unto us? How art thou fallen I
from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the- morn- |
"You may argue, protest and rage as
, you please; the old world has made up
its mind on the subject, and nothing that
can be said by the United States will al
ter its judgment. The American govern
ment has come out of its ring .fence. Tt
has thrown its hat into the arena of the
world. It is launched on a career of con
j quest that will be the more predatory be
i causa it is masked by humanitarianism.
1 The commonwealth, they hold, has sue
: cumb-d to the malady that has so long
; plagued the old world. A blight hope for
I the human race was extinguished when
| the one . non-military power, which es-
I chewed all schemes.of aggression and an
j negation, enrolled itself among the herd
| of conquering states. So men talk every
! where in Europe. Whether they regard
j the old American idea with sympathy or
contempt, they all agree in believing that
, it has been abandoned forever. The an
! nexation of the Philippine islands may
I seem but a small thing, but It is dcci
I Thus speaks Mr. Stead. And, mark; he
does not give his own opinion, but tells
us just what he sees and hears in the
city of Rome, and in Europe as well. Now
we will let Prof. Sumner speak. He
"The Americans have been committed
from the outset to the doctrine that all
men are equal. We have elevated it into
an absolute doctrine as a part of the the
ory of our social and political fabric. It
has always-been a domestic dogma in
spite of its absolute form, and as a do
mestic dogma it has always stood in glar
ing contradiction to the facts about In
dians and negroes, and to our legislation
about Chinese. In its absolute form it
must, of course apply to Kanakas, Ma
lays, Tagals and Chinese, just as much
as to Yankees, Germans and Irish. It is
an astonishing event that we have lived
to see Americans arms carry this domes
tic dogma out where it must i.-- tested in
its application to uncivilized and half-clv
tlized peoples. At the first touch of the
test we throw the doctrine away and
adopt the Spanish doctrine. We are told
by all the Imperialists that these people
are not fit for liberty and self-govern
ment; that it is rebeHion for them to re
sist our beneficence; that we must send
fleets and armies to kill them, and ad
minister it ourselves; that we may buy/
them or sell them as we please, and dis
pose of their 'trade' for our own advan
tage. What is that but the policy of Spain
to her dependencies? What can we ex
pect as a consequence of it? Nothing,
but that it will bring us where Spain is ]
This prediction of Mr. Sumner is sus
tained by all past history, especially that
of the republic of Rome. And if expan
sionists were not intoxicated with the
glory of conquest, they could see and be
lieve that there is nothing but ruin be- |
fore this nation and the world as well.

CLEVELAND, 0., Aug. 29.-To combine

outcome of the studies for many years ot
Russell Thompson, a Cleveland news
paper man, working upon the problem of
giving profitable employment to the im

obviously available, is not ised. J Ills

Mr. Thompson formed a corporation,
some months ago, under the name of the
Central company, filing a charter at
Trenton, through a New Jersey registrar

been quietly aiding and encouraging
these preliminaries. Those who have
