MONDAY, FEB. 24, 1902.
The most popular man in the United
Slates at the present moment is Mr. Ter
rence McGovern. He will so remain un
til the Jeffries-Fitzsimmons slugging
match is settled.
Within a few days the secretary or
Btate of the United States has thought
proper to make public a document In th e
Mature of a protest by this government
eyainst the proposed Russo-Chines©
tr.-.uy concerning Manchuria. That pro
test declared in effect that that treaty
yeas in violation of the sovereign rights
Of China, ana should not be allowed by
other nations! to go into effect without
the protest which Mr. Hay therein ex
pressed. Indeed, Mr. Hay's position wa»
Hot only a protest against the Itusso-
Cfcioese treaty, but it was in effect an
«sndors«nent of the Anglo-Japanese
Now let us see how this sort of thir.g
Tvorks. The Globe, in discussing re
cently the offer of the Mackay cable in
terest to build a line connecting the
main land of the United States and the
Orient by cable, always assumed that
the offer involved the extension and per
fection of the cable .service between the
United States and China. Since the com
mittee on foreign and interstate com
merce of the house recently declared
against the Mackay plan it has been
made to appear that neither the Mackay
interests nor the United States hag any
rights whatever with reference to laying
a cable on the Chinese mainland. That
right is possessed exclusively by Eng
land in conjunction with a Danish syndi
"His majesty's government shall use
their best endeavors to secure from the
administration (China) the due fulfill
ment on their part of the hereinbefore
recited agreements of the 4th August
VMM), and 27th October, 1900, and also the
due observance and fulfillment by the
administration until the 31st day of De
cember, 1930, of the terms and conditions
of the recited agreement of 11th July
1896, IClh May, 1897, 6th March, 1899, stipu
lated and confirmed in manner afore
This resolution has reference to the
cable monopoly which the British gov
ernment now possesses in connection
With the aforesaid Danish syndicate to
land cables on the Chinese coast. T7hen
it \v;.s adopted last June, it seems that
Sir Charles Dilke called attention to the
fact that it was in contravention of the
policy of the United States in seeking
to secure direct cable communication
With China, Mr. Chamberlain, that vehe
ment friend of the United States, de
clared then that the matter was ens
which required haste and suggested dis
rega.-.iing the warning of Sir Charles
An.i so the matter now stands. The
privilege, or more properly, the monop
oly, which the British government has
thus put itself in possession of, is clearly
in violation of the open door policy, and
of the treaty rights of the United Stats.
The following is article 30 of our treaty
with China, dated June, 1858:
"The contracting parties, hereby agree
that, should at any time the Ta Tsing
en-pire grant to any nation, or the mer
chants or citizens of any nation, any
right, privilege or favor, connected ei
ther with navigation, commerce, political
or other intercourse, which is not con
ferred by this treaty, such right, privilege
and favor shall at once freely inure to
the benefit of the United States, its pub
lic officers, agents and citizens."
Perhaps Mr. Hay will advise the coun
try why he finds it necessary to enter
his protest as secretary of state against
the negotiation of the Manchurlan
treaty, while ignoring the nature of these
concessions made to England by a iott?r
ing government, and made, by the way,
strange to relate, while the British and
the other embassies were, as the world
thought, being besieged by the Boxer
forces last summer a year ago.
It may be compatible with the natioi al
dignity to ignore the shameful violation
of his privileges and prerogatives as min
ister from the court of St. James, of
which Lord Pduncefote now stands con
victed either with or without the sanc
tion and co-operation of his government.
That was an instance in which England
sought to do us dirt and failed. This is
a case where she has sought to do us
dirt, and succeeded. The administration
may ignore the one. It will not be al
lowed to ignore the other, much as it
may desire. There are too many vaJia
ble commercial interests mvolvsd to U;;nic
that it can long escape public attention.
It is declared that the Elks will cap
ture the town on the occasion of their
next public display. It is a good thing
for the town to be captured by men
who have aa much humanity as the Elks.
On the published reports of the encoun
ter between Senators McLaurin and Till
man, of South Carolina, there is' but one
action open to the senate to adopt with
reference to them. That is to expel both
of them.
There is not a shade of difference in
their misconduct. Each is equally guilty
with the ether. Each showed aimself to
be a blackguard. In addition to showing
himself to be a blackguard Tillman show
ed himself to be a bully. That is the
only difference in the conduct oj. the two
men; and that is a difference in degree,
not in kind.
If the senate dees not throw both of
these men out of doors it is because it has
no proper regard for its own dignity, or
for the ■wishes of the American people.
One of them made a statement concern
ing: the other which demanded a dignified
an<d convincing denial and disproof. In
stead of offering either, that one chose
to adopt the reiuge of the street corner
blackguard by calling the other a liar.
This was done without the slightest ref
erence to the decencies of public debate,
the rules of the senate or personal obliga
tion in any direction. The other retorted
in kind by thumping his assailant and
one of the most disgraceful incidents in
American parliamentary history, wortay
of a saloon brawl, was the result.
When another ruffian of this type
struck down Charles Sumner in the sen
at© chamber nearly fifty years ago the
senate decided to expel him. But while
the vote was lacking of the necessary
two-thirds, Brooks had the decency to
resign, and the country was satisfied.
Now the situation which confronts the
senate of the United States, the state
of South Carolina and the country is
substantially the same as that of May,
1856. South Carolina Is sane, as she was
not then. She knows, or ought to know,
what is demanded of her in the present
instance. If these two men have not the
decency to resign, and the senate has not
the courage or self-devotion to throw
them out of the body which they have
both disgraced, then the state of South
Carolina ought to have the good sense
to demand their resignations, and should
select two others of her citizens to repre
sent the state.
It is a comparatively few weeks since
both of these men made outward plays
of desiring to withdraw from the senate
to test the question of political difference
existing between them. If they were net
deceiving themselves then, or trying to
deceive the country, they have now the
opportunity by which they can do an
act of justice to the senate which both
of them have declared their sorrow for
offending. Their resignations are in or
der. If they do not resign they should
be expelled. If they are not expelled
South Carolina owes it to itself as an
American commonwealth to see that it
cancels the commissions of each of them.
They have differences to settle and they
should be given the amplest opportunity
to settle them away from tne national
oapital, and in some other character be
sides that of senators: of the United
States, which character both of them
have disgraced.
It may toe a useful function to be a
knocker all the time; but there never
was a knocker that did not have It
knocked out of him finally and forever.
Mr. \V. J. Bryan should take notice.
The way finally chosen by the admin
istration out of the Cuban difficulty is,
properly enough, the imperialist way. It
is the same in principle as the way
chosen to govern the Philippine islands
in their civil interests—invest the national
executive with absolute powers in the
We have heard the United States sen
ate protesting against the usurpation of
its treaty-making powers, and the house
of representatives revolting against the
appearance on the part of* the other
branch of the national legislature of in
terfering with Hs constitutional preroga
tive of originating all revenue bills. And
all this in connection with the reciprocity
which both houses, under the direction of
the executive, have united in kicking out
of doors. But no Republican voice has
yet been heard against investing the ex
ecutive of the nation with judicial and
legislative as well as executive powers.
Yet this proposed Cuban treaty meas
ure—one ot the most cowardly and dan
gerous legislative makeshifts ever in
dulged in since the Missouri compromise j
- ■««-*. I 111 Mill■■!« *•,■--....■. .-, -11. .^-v*ts!* :^U-V'/->7 l t^y Al
—embodies in it the authorization of the
president to enact, ratify and sign a
treaty with the new Cuban republic when
it is called into existence. It is pre
cisely the same in principle as the pro
posal, so recently advanced by the im
perialist politicians, that the canal dif
ficulty, created by the introduction of the
Panama scheme at the last moment,
should be disposed of by allowing the
president to select between the two
routes, and as the present scheme of so
called civil government now in operation
in the Philippines.
Thus do we advance toward the final
goal of imperialism.
It must arouse the ire of every Demo
crat in the country that such things as
this can come to pass openly, and the
Democratic representatives in the na
tional and state offices allow them to
go practically unnoticed. "While this in
famous operation was in process of in
cubation, two so-called Democrats, repre
senting the sovereign state of South Car
olina, on the floor of the senate, were en
gaged in a rough-and-tumble fight, as if
they were in a bar-room under the influ
ence of bad whisky instead of being
members of the most enlightened legisla
tive body in the world, engaged in the ac
tual discharge of official duty.
While all these things are being done,
leading Democrats, who have assumed
to lead the party at one time or another,
remain silent and inactive. Men like
Graver Cleveland, David B. Hill and
William J. Bryan prefer evidently to go
on fighting out their personal differences
to surrendering or abating one jot of
their individual selfish interest. If there
were a live Democracy in the United
States the country would be made to ring
with denunciation of the methods in
vogue in disposing of great national
problems. There was more of wisdom
and foresight in the address delivered by
Mr. H. P. Hall, of this city, at the
Commercial club an evening or two ago,
looked at from the true Democratic
standpoint, than there evidently was in
all the speeches and resolutions made
public through the meeting of Democrats
in the Manhattan club on Saturday even
ing, called ostensibly to effect a reunion
of the National Democracy.
We are in the minority as a party, and
we deserve and are certain to remain so
as long as we occupy the attitude which
we do today of seeing the recognized con
stitutional landmarks torn from their
moorings by imperialist politicians, with
little more than a party murmur raised
against them.
It is the iceman's turn now, although
one would not think so. Just the same,
he is getting in some very fine licks
about the prevailing fine weather and
about the scarcity of his commodity next
summer. Of course the poor man is enti
tled to sympathy. He did not have quite
time enough to harvest his crop. If it
should happen to freeze like fury for the
next two months or so, he would be none
the less entitled to our sympathy.
Mr. Bryan says that Schwab did le;a
harm to the schoolboys of the United
States by breaking the bank at Monte
Carlo than he did when he advised a
graduating class that it was a good thing
to quit school at sixteen or seventeen.
Mr. Bryan] is possibly right; but there
are a good many folks who would con
demn Schwab's gambling operations who
would reserve applause for his statement
to the boys.
So the old auditorium is doomed. By
the way, Mr. McCardy, you were mainly
instrumental in giving us that preciotts
possession. Now is your time to trot cut
that other auditorium which you prom
ised you would furnish to the city when
the time came. The time is come. Be
not modest, but come forward, and bring
your auditorium with you. Let it be a
little different from the other.
It would be funny if the Dcs Moines
cdty officials did otherwise than resent
the imputation of unhealthfulness lev

from the ibeginning, and ever thus wi!i
it remain, no matter what part of the
world the city lies in.
It is rather a Brutus-like proceeding
on the part of Fred Schiffmann to de
liver his poignant blow by refusing to run

This talk about Cuba being enslaved
by the United States would sound better
coming from the lips of some cockerel
debating orator than from those of the
veteran politician and statesman—David
B. Hill.
Van Sant ought not to have hesitated
about turning that board of control devil
loose on the senate. Tied up, it will work
more havoc with his fences th.in it

A fine musacal organization is the In
nea band, which was heard for the first
time by a St. Paul audience yesterday
afternoon at the Metropolitan theater.
Conductor Innes himself is an interesting
personage. The very antithesis, in his
method of conducting, of the fiery and
demonstrative . little Italian, Creatore,
who led the Royal Italian band, Innes
achieves excellent;: results in the most
unobtrusive manner. Only the forearm
is permitted to move when he conducts
and his baton makes the briefest mo
tions possible. Yet that a "temperament
furiosa' 1 is not one of the requisites of
a musical conductor, Innes demonstrated
yesterday. The programme played was
a popular one on the whole. Two-steps,
waltzes, marches and serenades—all tha
gayer efforts of good composers—were
rendered in a manner that aroused the
enthusiasm of the audience. The Innes
band possesses a fine reed choir. In
deed, Innes himself appears to care
little for tremendous finals or great
crashes of brass, preferring, apparently,
to please his audiences with the fine ef
fects obtained from these reed instru
ments. The "Serenade Rococco" (Mey
er-Helmund) was played by the latter
instruments alone. It was exquisitely
rendered. A descriptive fantasie, "Kam
menoi Ostrow" by Rubinstein, was an
other finely interpreted number. Be
sides Rubinstein's "Triumphal," the
opening number, the band played two of
Innes' own compositions', "Cupid's Story"
and "Prince Charming." The latter num
ber is a stirring two-step. For a finale
the band played "The Blacksmith's Wed
ding," also by Innes. It is a spectacular
idyl. A novelty introduce^ yesterday
was the corps of costumed musical black
smiths, who played on electric anvils.
Kryl, the cornetist, played "The Whil
Whirlwind," Levy, and was obliged to
respond to two encores. His final num
ber was an illustration of what can be
done with the cornet in the way of dem
onstrating its musical range.
The soloists with the band, Signora
Adele Berghi, Signor Achille Alberti and
Signor Edgardo Zerni, sang two scenes
from "Carmen." Signora Berghi has a
light, clear and flexible soprano, but she
has not the temperament to sing "Car
men." Signor Alberti's voice was
rather overpowered by the orchestra.
Zermi, vhe tenor, was more satisfactory.
The band played another programme
last evening.
Jan Kubelik, the violin virtuoso, who
has created such a furore in Eastern cit
ies, and who has played in Chicago- re
cently to one of the most profitable au
diences that was ever gathered together
in that city, will make his first appear
ance before a St. Paul audience at the
Metropolitan opera house tomorrow
night. The engagement is for Tuesday
and Wednesday nights.
The engagement of David Belasco's
comedy, 'Naughty Anthony," at the
Metropolitan opera house on Thursday
evening, Feb. 27, will be the first ap
pearance of this farcical success in St.
PauJ. But one performance will he giv
en. The play Tiad a New York run a t
the Herald Square theater, and is said
to be full of good hearty laughs, The
conpany engaged to interpret the play,
which is under the* direction of- Sylvester
Maguire, of last summer's Criterion
Stock company, is of especial interest
to St. Paul theatergoers, as It contains
two of the favorites of the summer com
pany, Marie Doro, the pretty ingenue,
and Robert Folsom, who is said to have
made a hit as feudd, the erratic old val
entine maker, bthers in the cast besides
Miss Doro and* Mr. Folsom are Will P
Phillips, Patti Rosa, Pauline Rona, Thais
Magrani, Harry Hughes, Otto Hofmann,
L. H. Weinrich, George Magee, George
Friend and others.
An attraction worthy of a better fate
than the vicissitudes, of a popular-price
career is "Mam'selie 'Awkins," the bright
musical comedy that opened the week at
the Grand last night. Lively and airy
to a degree, it received hearty welcome
last night and cannot but receive more
than its share of attention the remainder
of the week.
The story is one of those nonsensical
absurdities, yet as musical comedies go,
has a plot, faint, some might say, and
easily lost in the maze of musical num
bers so meritoriously rendered. It is
there, however, and must be given the
credit of being ingenious. In music of
the catchy kind the attraction is rich.
To Miss Bella Stacey has been intrusted
the rendition in music of the absurdities
with which the comedy is permeatedl, and
she is equal to the task. A, voice of unusual
richm-ss, coupled with a spirit of fun,
found her more than a favorite. An
other whose vivaciousness is only equal
ed by a voice of uncommon sweetness is
Miss Carolyn M. Heustis. A wa.tz song
by Miss Heustis entitled "Dolly, Dolly,
Simple and Sweet," was among the pret
tiest of the evening's many musical
numbers, and called for several enco:es.
Miss Ella DeVine has a voice of great
strength and power, and perhaps mignt
be considered the best In the company in
this respect. Kpr "Mary Green" song j
was among the few that seemed to take ]
with the gallery, and found approval in
a lively whistling of the refrain, by the
patrons of that part of the house.
The company is well supplied with male
voices of strength and sweetness, prin
cipal among whom are Harry W. Wilson,
J. Cluxton and C. C. Paterson. Mr.
Wilson shares with Miss Stacey and
Ella De Vine the most exacting demands
of the musical score, and is more than
Perhaps of more interest than the
story which is told in music are the
many catchy airy numbers with which
the three acts are crowded. Each is a
novelty in itself and with the aid of a
chorus of decided sweetness is admirably
presented. "
It must be said that the attraction is
one of the best that has been seen at
the Grand this seascn.

a dozen turns, all good, puts the show i
in the leader class. The curtain raiser
entitled "The Vaudeville Craze" is out of
the common. It represents the heavy
weights of the theatrical profession, who,
unable to make good in the "legit," re
solve to enter the more lucrative field of
vaudeville. The olio follows as a se
quence. Kine and Gotthold present a
ludicrous burlesque of "Uncle Tom's
Cabin." Every juggling act is as a mat

success, and was greatly applauded.

Plan to End Strikes-
NEW YORK, Feb. 23.-Those interested
in the success of the arbitration commit
tee of thirty-six, which was appointed
through the National Civic r'ederation to
arbitrate in labor troubles throughout the
country, are satisfied thoroughly with the
results of the first meeting, which was
held in the Church Mission house, at
Fourth avenue and Twenty-secona street
with Senator Mark Hanna in the chair'
Thirty out of the thirty-six members
were present and the proceedings were
marked: with the greatest harmony and
good feeling.
No reference was made at any time to
any specific labor trouble which the com
mittee might be called upon to settle the
whole session being occupied with the dis
cussion of by-laws. It was decided that
meetings of the industrial department
sfoould be held annually, the programme
to be drawn up by an executive com
mittee consisting of twelve representa
tives of employers, twelve of employes
and twelve of the general public. Three
members from each division will consti
tute a quorum, but the division always
will be equal in voting strength, regard
less of the number of each division at

a letter of regret expressing warm in
terest, but explaining that ill health pre
vented his attendance.
Skyscraper for Wall Street-
The financial district has repeatedly of
late furnished the real estate world with
surprises because of the gigantic trans
actions in property within its limits. The
latest is a million dollar deal on the eve
of consummation, though In some quar
ters it is authoritatively stated that the
papers have already passed. *
This property is the five-story building
on the northwest corner of William street
and Exchange place, at present occupied
by the Bank of the State of New York.
The bank has been absorbed by the Na
tional Bank of North America, and the
former sold its building not long ago to
Charles W. Morse, who is acquiring a
chain of banks all over the country.
Mr. Morse, acting for the Wall Street

new skyscraper on William street, ex
tending to Avail street, adjoins the old
bank building.
The bank people some time ago con
templated the erection of a twenty-live
story office building on the site, and plans
for it had in fact been already prepared,
which threatened to blanket the new in
surance building and shut off i-ie win
dows on the south side.
It was this threat, is was sa.d, that
prompted the purchase of fhe bank site
at a price about $400,000 in- excess oi what

or so ago.
As the Atlantic Mutual Insurance com

The famous war of Cathedral Heigihts

The late John C. Terry in the year IS-W
came to the landing place on the Missis
sippi river which afterwards became the
site of the city of St. Paul. He told
the writer that during the spring fol
lowing he tramped across country to a
point near where the state fish hatchery
la now located. He was then a strong,
sturdy young fellow ready lor any <x
perience which might present itself. In
going out from St. Paul on this excur
sion he had waded through Phalen's
creek near its mouth and expected to
do so again while returning. While go
ing home he found on the cast Lante
of the stream, the Rev. Augustine Ka
voux, at that time the sole representa
tive of the Catholic church in the im
mediate neighborhood of St. Paul. The
worthy priest had been out en a tour
of pastoral calls, and when returning
did not find at the banks- of the creek
the boatman who had ferried him over
and who had promised to be there await
ing his return. Terry had become ac
quainted with Father Ravoux who was
one of the leaders in the pioneer settle
ment, and when the two met upon tMs
occasion they had an exchange of saluta
tions and some conversation. The priest
told Terry how he had crossed the
stream that morning and how he was
now detained as a prisoner on the banlc
and of the absence of the boatman upon
whom he had relied and who was no
where to be seen. The matter was se
rious because night was coming on.
Father Ravoux was quite disconsolate.
After some bantering about the delights
of tramping about in the wilderness Mr.
Terry said: "Father Ravoux, did you
ever when a <boy ride upon the back
of another boy?" In answer to this
Father Ravoux somewhat hesitatingly
admitted that he had participated in that
form, of juvenile diversion. "Then," taid
Terry, "get on my back and I will carry
you over." After some polite demur on
the part of the priest he climbed upon
the shoulders of his Yankee Baptist
friend, and thus supported was carried
across the turbulent and muddy stream
which had been a formidable bar
rier to his progress. Had he not availed
himself of Mr. Terry's kind offer Father
Ravoux would have been obliged to make

When Mrs. Cleveland left the tiaJn iier

the lady was.
So she said: "Do you see that lady on

"Yes," said he, "what of her?"
"That's Mis. Cleveland." The man re

For several days girls have been invad

The Spectator, the students' crjjan, tn
its current issue takes a fling at th • res
taurant and the girls in one editoiial.
"We confess," the editors say, "that

we certainly do not grudge anyone th 3
food. But the room, such as it 13, we
have always considered our own, and we

we want no precedent then against claim

The editors demand the exclusion or

"The trouble all comes from childish

men," says Miss Gill, Barnard's dean.
"The girls have no place of their own,
and, naturally, they go to Columbia.
Barnard is growing so that the girls will

see how it can be helped."

The thirtieth annual banquet of the Silk
Association of America was held at L>l
-monico's. The 300 guests who gathered
around the tables were in splendid spir

improved a great deal since the last ban
quet of the association, and everyone felt
happy. Many of those at the tables have
interests in Paterson, N. J., and they
were particularly happy because the
great fire had passed the silk mills by.
It was long after the cigars had been
reached before the speechmaking began.
The banqueters joined in song after song,
and when a quartette of young women
sang from the gallery they rose and
cheered and cried "as fine as silk."
New Tuberculosis Cure-

Within the last few weeks one of the
most charming married women of the
younger set was sojourning in tho city
of New York. She is a pronounced
blonde and has all of the natural grace I
and taste in dress which are character
istic of the French women, and which,
by some subtle course of inheritance,
have become her possession. One day
she visited an immense store on Broad
way, in oompany with, a woman residing j
in that city, and was directed to a «soun- j
ter in charge of a clerk, clad In dapper i
costume, and having that bored and j
wearied manner, that affectation of lan- |
quid indifference which are often round j
associated with the superiority over
Western people which many of the rt si
dents of New York city claim to pos
sess. The young woman in question de
sired to purchase some fabric to match
in color and texture a fragment which
she had brought with her. The clerK
after some search said that the material !
was not In stock. The woman from St.
Paul then remarked: "I should not be
surprised at being unable to match this
piece of cloth in one of our stores at St.
Paul, but I am surprised to find that I
cannot do so in a great New York store
like this." The clerk seemed to be slight
ly aroused from his habitual indifference
by this remark and said to her, at the
same time looking her over critically
from head to foot, "Are you from St.
Paul, Minn.?" Upon receiving a reply
in the affirmative the clerk sagely vol
unteered the remark: "Well, if I were
you I should never say that I was from
the West, because if you had not said so
yourself no one in New York would nave
suspected it." Thus it is New York accl
dently reveals from time to time its su
percilious mental attitude with reference
to the glorious West.
There is one vilage in the United States

This is the little German village ot
Glandorf, in Putnam count, Ohio, where
600 frugal and industrious, inhabitants
have lived for years in a contented and
idyllic simplicity.
In the building of the town, as in every
thing else about it, the people have held
very closely to the customs o_f Germany,
from where its founders came. There
is one street, and that extends for
over a mile, generally north and south.
Quaint, durable and homelike are the
houses scattered along either side, inter
spersed here and there by stores. All
the residences have spacious and well
kept dooryards. Back and away from
this principal street—yet so near that the
laborers can be seen and heard at their
work in the fields—stretch the thrifty
farms of the German country folk. It
is not an uncommon sight to see women
and girls at work on the fielcfe with the
men, and the whole population shows
that rugged health so characteristic of
the race.
Among themselves the people converse
almcst entirely in the German language,
and indeed, there are a great many in
the community who can speak no other.
They are generous and clever, and the
stranger wno goes among them always
finds a hospitable welcome and is impress
ed with their simple kindness. Nowhere
can be found a more devoutly religious
people. They are of the Catholic faith,
and possess one of the finest church buld
ings in Northwestern Ohio.
This edifice has in itself "been the means
of making Glandorf famous, because of
its size and the beauty of its architecture.
