Main llMi.'t. THURSDAY, JULY 10, 1902. The last revolution In Venezuela was one of the bloodiest in the history of the country. The returns are all In and it has been found that four lives were lost in battle. LET US KNOW ABOUT THIS. Dr. Ohage fights valiantly. His earn estnesa and determination of purpose is brought home to the community Avith additional strength through his Jifrgressive attitude towards Mr. Ged ney's pickle factory. This is not the time to pass decisive ly, one way or the other, on the ques tion as to whether Mr. Gedney does or does not fulfill the very liberal condi tions under which the city allows him to occupy a very valuable public prop erty in the conduct of his private busi ness. On the published reports of his testimony it may be said that, even as sisted by Assemblyman Arnold, he does not present a very imposing appear wl'l reference to his compliance Avith the terms of his contract with the city. Those who conduct industrial enter prises and seek a location for their in dustries in St. Paul find that they re quire considerable capital to enable them to secure a desirable site if they have not the good fortune to secure a levee privilege from the community. These levee sites are virtually in the heart of the city. With the develop ment which is now in progress in con nection with railroad transportation in this community, and more particularly on the West side, the property occu pied free of rent by Mr. Gedney and other business men is becoming ex tremely valualle. If those who oc cupy it are not fulfilling the terms and requirements of their leases, even under the strictest construction of the terms of such leases, the public should know it and have its right to declare such leases void exercised or not ex ercised at its discretion. The question is not one which re lates to Mr. Gedney alone. It relates to all similarly situated with him. There seems to be a sort of half-heart edness prevailing on the part of some at least of those who are conducting this investigation. This is not right. The public should know the facts. The easements which those who occupy city property on the levee enjoy are 100 valuable to be treated lightly. Enough has been already shown to cause serious doubt as to whether the requirements of those leases are ob served. There is no public department or official immediately charged with seeing that the terms of those leases are complied with, and no inquiry on that score would probably ever have been made were it not for the contro versy now in existence on the subject of the Omaha spur track. City Attorney Markham seems to be the one official of all others upon whom the duty should devolve of seeing that the lessees of this property do fulfill and have fulfilled their obligations to the city. The Globe sincerely hopes that he will do his entire duty in the premises. It is an important duty, and one which may result in valuable consequences to the city. Without any especial reference to the case of Mr. Gedney, The Globe believes that the time has come for the people of St. Paul to be advised as to whether these factories established on the levee are of serious business value to the community, to what extent they are of such value, and whether they fulfill the requirements dictated by the city in determining their location. BOOKER T. WASHINGTON IN ST. PAUL. If Booker T. Washington were a white man there is no position of honor or responsibility in the public service which would be regarded as beyond his deserts. Being a negro he is, in the present constitution of American soci ety, debarred from a wide range of public and private, activities which would be otherwise open to him. Since the death of Frederick Douglas no man of his race has appeared who in point of mentality, moral dignity or substan tial achievement has been able to fill his place, excepting alone Mr. Wash ington. It is a mere passing incident in the career of this colored man that he has been the recipient of distinguished consideration at the hands of the pres ident of the United States. Yet the circumstance, naturaHy enough, we suppose, has directed more general at tention toward Mr. Washington than had ever reached him as the result of his labors on behalf of his own people or on account of his eminence as a distinguished citizen of the United States. Mr. Washington's appearance in St. Paul at this time is an event in which every citizen, white and black alike, should rejoice. His entertain ment ought to be, and doubtless will be, in the nature of a municipal obliga tion. While his life has been devoted not directly to the service of the state nor to the cause of religion, science, art or literature, he has done great service for his country. Had his claims upon the high estimation of American soci ety no other foundation than the one of the wisdom which he has shown in the direction of the thought and ef forts of his race, it would be entitled to general recognition. He has render ed indisputable service in that domain and has brought the ultimate solution, of the vast social problem of the negro race in the United States nearer to possible realization. Acting along the lines mapped out by him Booker Washington's people cannot fail to realize the best that is in them as a people. They must, more over, contribute materially to the less ening of the dangers, social as well as political, which confront American so ciety as the result of their existence as a constituent element of American population. By minimizing the impor tance to them of the pursuit of polit ical ends and illuminating by his pow erful intellect the gain to themselves and their white fellow men to be se cured through their improved equip ment for the undertakings of produc tive life, he has shown himself to be at once a profound thinker, a good American and a safe guide for his people. The true inwardness of that Pitts burg anti-trust speech of the president is becoming apparent. It was all plan ned to cover up the failure of congress to tackle the trust question, and to help out in the coming elections. AMES' ACQUITTAL. The conviction of Police Superin tendent Ames, of Minneapolis, on the charge of accepting a bribe was al most universally expected. His ac quittal was not regarded on the testi mony as even a possibility. Public sentiment in Minneapolis and else where tends toward the condemnation of the jury which rendered its verdict of acquittal, yet there is no reason to doubt that these men acted according to their best lights. The character of most of the wit nesses who testified against Ames is irretrievably bad. Up to the tfme of his trial he himself had borne a good character in the community. He had held responsible positions and he had been of sufficient importance in his community to have been appointed col onel of the Thirteenth Regiment of Volunteers. His record in the Philip pines is not especially notable; but it is undeniable that he volunteered to serve his country at his country's call, and served it creditably during the Spanish-American war. In addition to all this, Ames is a man of family and good social position. It was not alone the police officer, but the husband and father, whom the jury had under con sideration; and while, doubtless, they had no particularly favorable opinion of him as an official or as a man, they hesitated to deprive a wife and her children of their only protection, large ly on the testimony of self-confessed thieves and perjurers. A serious tactical mistake was made by the prosecution in introducing the man Norbeck into the case. He is a coward, a drunkard, a thief and a per jurer who in his connection with Min neapolis affairs does not seem at any time to have revealed a single redeem ing characteristic. It was an offense against decent society to offer the tes timony of such a man, and more par ticularly to offer it under such condi tions as bespoke his probable immu nity from punishment for his self-con fessed crimes. The social and official filth & which THE ST. PACE, GLOBg, THURSDAY, JULY 10, 1903. this man Ames seems to have been at once the head and center is revolting. It will be a further crime against the good name of Minneapolis and against all ideas of public morality if the man is allowed, as he probably will be, to continue to discharge his functions as head of the police department. If he would resign or could be removed it would be a good riddance for the city, at the head of whose police department he ostensibly is. According to the press of Minneapolis there is a proba bility that Ames will again be placed on trial. In the interest of decent gov ernment and official responsibility such a course is no doubt fully warranted; but, practically, every good result would be accomplished without further expense to the community if the man could be driven from his present place. What manner of man he is the com munity now knows. Whether he is sent to state's prison, is again acquitted of the charges that may remain to be brought against him, or is disregarded in future prosecutions, his end has come so far as relates to character and standing, in Minneapolis or elsewhere. The effort which the city of Minne apolis is making to purge itself of the unmeasured corruption which has in vaded its administrative government is in every way commendable. The great end, however, of the existing prosecutions will not be effected until every man now holding office identified from choice with Mayor Ames and his official family is driven into retirement. The Datto suzerainty is evidently not a success. One of our royal allies over in Mindanao has advised us that he will take the offensive in August. Now we ourselves are about to do the same thing, toward the other Dattos, as Gen. Chaffee announces. The pros pect is fair that Mindanao will wind up by being made a crown colony. We will have that much of the royal idea anyway to build on in the future. The moral of that kick -coming from Santiago de Cuba about the Scotchman who was thrown into jail while suffer ing for delirium tremens is chiefly that delirium tremens is a good thing for Scotchmen and other folks to avoid. The affair can hardly be worked up into international propor tions. The new secretary of the navy need not worry himself about the members of the press being able to take care of themselves and the forthcoming sham naval maneuvers. They «iave always shown when the "real thing" in that regard was in progress that they could get the best of what was in progress. It is related that there were many millions of dollars represented at a re cent marriage in "Berkshire Hills." If the chronicler of this important inci dent had mentioned pounds sterling instead of dollars it would have at least made the sham of the Berkshire part of the story less apparent. If the other lady cashiers should adopt the example of that young Chi cago woman who played the races to the extent of $1,100, there is the possi bility that the ranks of the defunct members of the calling might have a feminine addition or two some time. That German naval captain who ex plains the Manila harbor incident which caused that spell of ill-feeling should tell us the name of that Amer ican air which was mistaken for the Snanish coronation hymn. It must be something great. Business must be quite active among the' American correspondents at Rome. The certainty of Archbish op Ireland's selection as cardinal has been announced "on the highest au thority" only six times within the past week. It is gratifying to observe the addi tions which are recorded as being made to the city library. Those of us who are not long out of our teens may yet live to see St. Paul possess a suitable public library. It was at best but a poor cyclone, that which is said to have struck at Perham, Minn., since it did no more than to wreck a circus tent. But Per ham is, after all, only a young com munity. The London Times asks what can be done to prevent the exportation to the United States of rare and costly literary works. Why, keep them at home, and make use of them. That's easy. With corn aspiring to the dollar mark it would not seem to matter much if the Kansas wheat crop should be scorched, drowned or un harvested for lack of hands. The coal barons say it must be un conditional surrender by the men. Will it be the kind of unconditional surren der which Lord Salisbury exacted from the Boers? The voice of the congressman seek ing renomination is heard in the land, telling how he alone saved the coun try from great peril during the last session. If these rains keep up a few weeks longer the inhabitants of a large por tion of the country will have to take to arks or be carried down stream. Fugitive Tracey, of Oregon, can lose a number of those ten minutes he has in the way of a start and still get away from his pursuers. Mary Mac Lane is qualified for the Republican platform, as she holds that a good lie well stuck to is preferable to the plain truth. Mont Pelee and the Fourth of July having gone by there is no competitor in the field to dispute the right of way of the cyclone. This Is the time of year when the preachers take a vacation but the agents of the Old Nick keep right at work. Don Dickinson did not help his own presidential boom by his little talk in launching that of his friend Joe Choate While the strike of the handlers lasts a good many of the railroads will be unable to pull their freight. Chief of Police Ames has been de clared innocent and it is a good bet that he won't do it again. The coming of the sea serpent has been quite generally delayed this year by the heavy rains. The Minneapolis ball team plays as if it was afraid of the grand jury. AT THE GRAND OPERA HOUSE.

But the London Times and other papers this morning confirm the Associated Press ■ announcement. Rom the same excellent source the Associated Press 1 learns today that the pressing forward of the coronation was due to the personal insistence of the king. His doctors were at first op posed to such an early date, but the king declined to agree to any other p plans until he is crowned and, the doc tors linally realizing that more danger was likely to arise in opposing his majesty on this point, agreed to it. They now see the kingavas right and that it i will be far better for him to get through the turmoil of the coronation as soon as possible than to have it hanging over him for months. King ward has determined not to break up the court at Buckingham pal ace until after the coronation. He may go on board his yacht for a few days' cruise, but he is more likely to remain in London till the affair is over and then take a prolonged holiday. NEW YORK CITY GOSSIP USE TROLLEY CAR AS HEARSE AND CARRIAGE AT FUNERAL Clearing House Fines Two Banks for Errors in Arithmetic—Benchmen. Butchers and Barbers Combine and Revive Old Sunday Closing Statute. NEW YORK, July 9.—A trolley car funeral attracted widespread attention and comment as it moved slowly along the road from Far Rockaway to the Salem cemetery, in Brooklyn. It is the first time that the trolley car has been put to such use, in Brooklyn, at least, and everything passed off so nicely that the Brooklyn Rapid Transit officials, it is said, will make a bid for business in this line by fixng suitable rates for the service. Mrs. Yetta Heller, said to be wealthy in her own right, died at the summer cottage of Mrs. I. A. Englehardt, in Far Rockaway. She expressed a wish shortly before she died to be buried in the family plot, which is one of the most ornamental in the Salem ceme tery. Her relatives and friends, in seeking to avoid the long carriage ride from Far Rockaway, conceived the idea of using the trolley line for the funeral, and chartered a special car of the North Shore trolley line. By arrange ment with the Brooklyn Rapid Transit company the trolley car, which was an open one, was given the right of way over the entire route. The coffin was carried by the pall bearers from Mrs. Englehardt's house to the car and placed with the floral tributes in the center of the aisle. The relatives and mourners were ar ranged in the seats in accordance with their nearness of kin to the deceased, and the car was started in charge of a special motorman and conductor. The trolley line passes the cemetery gate, and the pall bearers carried the coffin to the grave. After the services the relatives and friends were taken home on the special car. Banks Fined for Errors. Two heavy fines were inflicted by the Clearing House association upon two banks whose clerks made errors in computation, which delayed the ex changes three-quarters of an hour. One clerk made an error of $1,000 and the other $100. Manager Scherer de clined to give the names of the banks. He said that mistakes were made oc casionally, but it is seldom that such a long delay was caused. Sunday Closing Enforced. As a result of the action of the Benchmen's, Butchers' and Journey man Barbers' associations, the butch ers and barbers of Jersey City will be ordered to keep their places of busi ness closed on Sunday. An old stat ute provides that only works of neces sity shall be performed on Sunday, and the journeymen butchers and bar bers have unearthed this blue law to enforce the closing of places of em ployment. While shaving and hair cutting may be dispensed with on Sunday, it would entail great hardship on those who live in the tenement district to cut off their meat supplies. In view of this it is expected that while the law will be enforced strictly in the case of the barber shops, the butchers in the tenement districts will be per mitted to do business for an hour or two in the morning. JAMISON IN CONTROL INSURGENTS ARE WIPED OFF RE PUBLICAN STATE CEN TRAL COMMITTEE MARTIN SUCCEEDS BIXBY AS CAMPAIGN MANAGER Party Wheelhorses Say Selection of Weak Men Inaugurates Private Sec retary's Campaign for Nomination in 1904—Other Results of the Gath ering. The best the insurgents got yester day in the reorganization of the Re publican state central committee was a chance to sit on the fence and watch the passing show. Executive Clerk James Martin succeeds Tarns Bixby as chairman of the executive committee, which is the campaign machine prop er, and Robert Jamison is In control of the situation. The cleaning: up did not stop with ousting the men who were known to be unfriendly to the administration in the late insurgent disturbance, but went from top to bottom of the list and with the exception of the imme diate henchmen of the admnistration and the three men named by Senator Clapp, Jamison had his own sweet will and inaugurated his campaign for con trol of the state convention in 1904. Men who came to Van Sant's rescue when he was in mighty tight spots were turned down because they were recognized as strong individuals and by virtue of that fact necessarily dan gerous. Jamison was on the slab and invented the excuses by which the governor of Minnesota again clothed himself for his great impersonation of champion promise-breaker of the Northwest. Men whom they feared were turned down "because they were expected to be candidates" tor legislative or other offices, and, according to the rule pro posed by Jamison, were therefore inel igible. This rule did not apply, how ever, when it came to the selection of Senator E. B. Hawkins, of Biwabik, who has announced that he expects to be a candidate to succeed himself; nor to Representative J. F. Jacobson, of Madison, whom Senator E. T. Young said would not be a candidate; nor yet Albert Johnson, of Red Wing, who is touted as the Republican candidate to succeed Senator Dickey. Politicians Are Disgusted. Around the hotels, after the selec tion of the committeemen was an nounced, there was no attempt to dis guise the disgust felt by the practical politicians. Belief in the theory that Jamison had builded a committee to suit his own purposes was generally expressed. He was openly charged with picking weak men that there might be no question about his domi nation of the committee, the subse quent control of the next state conven tion and the defeat of the men who are now getting ready to nominate Robert Dunn for governor in 1904. The reconstruction is complete. James Martin, the clever young poli tician from the Sixth district, suc ceeds Bixby as manager. Private Sec retary Jamison steps into W. C. Mas terman's place, who in turn takes Jamison's place as treasurer of the general committee. A. F. Ferris Ole Myran, Eli S. Warner and the rest of the old committee crowd were wip ed off the list. Jamison had his say, and the governor of Minnesota was on hand to agree with the suggestions made Jjy "Your chairman, Judge Jam ison." Then, after J. T. Wyman, chairman of the recent convention, appointed the slate as put up, the gov ernor of Minnesota said: "Now, we must all be a nice, big, good-natured family. Good-bye, boys." And Jami son explained that no candidates were allowed on the committee. The change of base effected by W. C. Masterman was not manipulated by the administration, so at least says the administration. Masterman could have retained his seat as head of the general committee if he would, but he declined positively. The vacancy was promptly filled from the gover nor's office force and Masterman in duced to accept the berth of treasurer. Martin At the Helm. James Martin, who succeeds Tarns Bixby as the managerial head of the Republican campaign ship, is one of the very few men on the committee recog nized as having any political strength In the state, and he is almost an un known quantity, but altogether the most promising man in the bunch, viewed from the standpoint of the practical politician. He is young, ag gressive and bright. He stepped into WHEAT ACKNOWLEDGES THE CORN.

Russell, the special attor ney of the department of justice, who has been delegated to proceed to Paris to examine the title of the new Panama Canal company, left here this after noon for Atlantic City, where he will hold a final consultation with Attor ney General Knox. Judge Russell ex pects to sail within a week for France. The date of the departure of the at torney general, who will join Mr. Rus sell in Paris to make the final examina tion of the title, has not yet been defi nitely fixed, but it probably will be early in August. Final negotiations for the conclu sion of the definite treaty between the United States and Colombia, which is to authorize the construction of the Panama canal, began at the state de partment today at a meeting between Secretary Hay and Mr. Cromwell, rep resenting the Panama Canal company and the Colombian legations here. While a definite conclusion was not reached at today's meeting, it is stated that distinct advance was made to ward the end. Heart Stab Not Fatal. Stabbed through the heart has hither to been synonymous with fatally wounded, but modern surgery has stepped in and it is now possible to recover from this injury. Dr. Fontan, a Toulon surgeon, had a young soldier brought to him suf fering from a knife wound piercing the pericardium, causing a lesion of the heart. Dr. Fontan opened the cavity and applied three stitches in the heart. The gash was on a level with the left ventricle. The patient has now entirely recovered.

Away m the sea-girt islands I" the land of the rising sun Whore the leathered .songsters warble *rom morn till the day is done, where the gorgeous tangled festoons Oi vine and bud and flower Drape all the land and the forest grand Where the graceful bamboo tower, *air freedom came for a day to dwell In that sweet enchanted bower. She lifted aloft her banner, bhe planted a Christian state, And added it to the nations To grow both strong and great. A beacon light in the ocean blue, At the very heathen's gate. And the sore distressed by Spain oppress ed No longer for justice cried. For their hungry hearts and their thirsty souls By freedom were pacified. But from the calm Pacific The growl of the dogs of war Was heard from the Western free land By those sunny isles afar. In the name of God and freedom And Christian charity. They strewed the land, the invading band, with the wrecks of liberty. "Now yield to foreign sovereignty. To Columbia free," they cried; "For not till ye bow to the alien yoke Shall your land be pacitied." Then up arose God's freemen, Sons of a dusky hue. In defense of home and country, In the might of manhood true; From the gently flowing Pasig, Creeping past Manila's wall. And from Tarlac's weeping willows To Malolos ere the fall; From Caloocan to the mountains Tnat rim in Laguna de Bay, To the bosom of the forest In the island of Panay. Their lives they gave, but the crimson wave The oppressor ne'er satisfied. To make the land a wilderness Was the way they were pacified. And there went forth an edict From the mighty men of war To burn the towns and the people slay On he island of Samar. From the innocents of ten years old E'en to three score years md ten; And the West land free that would cause the knee Of a brother to bend, -n pride Proclaimed to the cruel, waiting world That the island was paciiied. Weep for the island's helpless, The lame, the halt, the blind; The new born and the dying. What succor could they find? If from the burning dwellings They were borne 'twas but to meet The flashing steel and Mauser's peal In the glare of the burning street. Stricken with awful terror, In vain they for mercy cried. By shot and shell, by fire and sword. Weak and strong were pacified. And just on the edge of the city, In a humble nip.", cot, Heposed the aged grandsire And the grandam. dreaming not Of (he cruel fate awaiting Ere they waked to sleep in death. The morning broke amid flame and smoke And silently, side by side. Two little mounds of ashes lay, And old age was pacified. Away from the burning: city A mother in wild despair Fled, clasping her babe to her bosom. While a bullet rankled there. Till her life blood stained its forehead And matted its dusky hair, Away from the burning city She turned to the ocean strand, And-there at the lonely midnight Sank down on the wet sea sand. Then, with a cry of anguish To the Christ who was crucified, With a prayer for the babe tn her bosom The mother was pacified. And the babe on the mother's bosom Wailed through the livelong day; Wept out its desolation Till the light has passed away. j hen in the gloom and shadow, Mid ihe sighs of the rising tide. The b^be on its mother's bosom By hunger was paciiled. Over the mined landscape Wild shouts on the stillness rise. "Three cheers for our starry banner, For Old Glory, that proudly Hies Over a subject pooplp In the isles of the Eastern sea. Where the brown man gave his life to save For his children a country free. But the Christos veiled with horror His face in his mantle white. And, shuddering, turned from the banner Where the beauteous stars of light. Now set in a field of blood, Had gore cut in the clouds of night. And the Nazarene's followers meek Scented the crimson tide. Nor heedtd the crowr of thorns, Nor gazed on the wounded side, But waded in human gore Till revenge was pacified. Weep, O stricken Vfsayns! Weep, sea-girt isles afar. From ihe sun-kissed hills and the vine clad vales Of Luzon to lone Samar. Ween lor the day when tyrants With Christian charity (?) Marched through the land with an armed band Not til 1, the rears of ages By our Father's hands are dried Will thy sons, denied their freedom, Be finally pacified. —Rebecca J. Taylor.
