The Republican convention which meets to-morrow to nominate a congressman from the Second district promises to be rather different from the cut and dried affairs recently convened in Mr. Nelson's interest at Brainerd. As many as six aspirants for congressional honors have made public announcement of their to serve Minnesota in the national council, and it is to be presumed there are several dark horses who may, in the event of complications ensuing, make a very good running.

Thus far the race seems to be narrowed down between three contestants, Messrs. Lixd, Freemajt and Wakefield. with the first-named somewhat, in the lead. Each of course has his supporters, confident that none other will be chosen and determined to spare no effort to bring about the victory of their favorite. The chances are that the convention will find it no easy matter to decide between the conflicting claims, and the contest may be prolonged.

Mr. Lind has a strong Scandinavian support, is popular in the district and represents, if the term may be used, the younger and more progressive Republicans. His friends claim, and it is probable, that he will lead on the first ballot, though Mr. Wakefield's quiet but no less effective canvass may interfere considerably with the calculation. As it stands at present it is anybody's race.

A RATHE 15 WARM: DAT. On occasion it may be permissable to talk about the weather, and if ever day deserved comment the unanimous verdict of thousands would be that yesterday was the day. It was the hottest of the season, and yet was universally enjoyed. That is a characteristic of the Minnesota climate. Out-door life here is endurable and pleasant under conditions which in other portlonf of the rountry would render it impossible.

Doubtless in no Eastern city, while the mercury was climbing near the hundred mark, would so many thousand people have devoted theTiay to the different forms of amusement which yesterday prevailed in St. Paul with as great comparative comfort as. that enjoyed by the multitudes which were bent upon having a good time In the Saintly city. It was hot of course, but Minnesotians have learned that extreme heat as well as extreme cold have a different and more satisfactory meaning in this climate than in any other. AX ORDERLY CITY.

St. Paul is to be congratulated and her city government commended upon the freedom of the city and neighborhood from any indication of disorder yesterday. Notwithstanding the. fact that the entire population of the city was taking a holiday, and that it was a day too of special license, the streets of the city presented an extremely orderly appearance, and the large crowds which flocked to the various places of amusement and to the suburbs were noted only for a permissable and wholesome exuberance of spirits. It is doubtful whether a better record was- made by any city of equal size in the country, and St.

Paul has good reason for being proud of it. A FOURTH OFJL'LYI'ARAGRAPn. The Cincinnati Commercial-Gazette of last Saturday had a three-column editorial on the Fourth of July. This looks as if brother Hai-stead was at last becoming reconciled to a Democratic administration. He hasn't written as long an editorial since he resigned the command of the British campaign in the Soudan, which occurred a short while after Mr.

Blaise's defeat. It is gratifying to see that the venerable Nestor of the Cincinnati press is himself one more. Between the Fourth of July and the Payne investigation the Commercial Gazette's editorial columns will be kept well filled for some time to come. A CRUEL, PRACTICE. The news that little Daisy Murdoch is dying of quick consumption is no surprise.

The only surprise is that more of these stage beauties do not die from the exposure to which they are subjected. Daisy Murdoch was the Cupid in "Ixion," and always appeared on the stage in a thin covering of flesh-colored knitted silk. When it is remembered that she appeared in this thin garb for two hours each night, and pight after night successively during the whole of the past winter in the various theaters from New York to San Francisco it is no wonder that she contracted consumption. The pitiable condition of the pretty little actress who is now dying and in destitution excites the sympathy of the public. It ought to do more.

It ought to excite public indignation that such murderous practices should be tolerated in our theaters. The plain English of it is, Daisy Murdoch has been murdered by the management, which required her togappear on the stage in dress that was bound. to result in death. There is no sort of excuse for such cruelty. The public taste for amusements is not so debauched as to demand a pleasing exhibition at the sacrifice of human life.

If the theater managers are not considerate enough to protect the health of the members of their companies then there ought to be a law compelling them to do so. When Daisy Murdoch dies her manager ought to be prosecuted for her murder. A severe punishment awarded in this case will be a useful lesson to theatrical managers in the future. GES. OUKSON'S BOOK.

Gen. li. W. Johnson's book, "Reminiscences of a Soldier in Peace and War," will be ready for distribution about August 1. The author devotes a few pages to his 1 early recollections; his appointment to West Point, then to his service on the frontier and in Indian campaigns, services in the late war.

and "recollections of distinguished soldiers with whom he served. The I chapters are devoted to his observations Minnesota since his permanent location in St. Paul. From the proof-sheets which we have seen, we feel authori zed to say that the work is well written, and will be found to be a Very interesting one to all classes of people. A GRAMMATICAL PROBLEM.

The grammarians are puzzling their brains to supply a defect in our language which is difficult to overcome. We have no personal pronoun, in the third personal singular, applicable both to males and females, and this defect is giving the grammarians any amount of trouble. For instance, when a teacher says, "Every pupil may their seats," he is conscious of having made a grammatical error and yet he cair't well avoid It if there are both boys and girls in the school room. If he says "every pupil may take his the girls are slighted, and if I he says "every pupil may take his or her i seat" it is felt to be cumbersome. Prof, Tweed of Boston suggests that it would be advisable to adopt Matthew Arnold's method of using the word "one" and to accept it as the invention of a new pronoun of the third person singular, that shouid be applicable to either sex.

But this would sound awkward, If addressed to a man and wife it would be appropriate enough considering the relation of oneness which they occupy in the eyes of the law. But for a teacher to say. "Every pupil may take one's seat" would be an extreme difficult, command to obey even if it was grammatically expressed. The best the grammarians can do is to let nature have her way with the sexes. They were made male and female in the beginning and all the grammarians in tile world can't reverse the decree.

RIVERS AMD HARBORS. It is taken for granted that the president will veto the river and harbor appropriation bill. It is said that he is itching for a chance to put his signature to the message which will call the attention of congress and of the nation to the extra waste of public money in this direction. It is even intimated that he has laid away in his desk a quill pen plucked from an American i eagle with which he intends to sign the veto. Of course this is all guesswork, as the president has never intimated what action he intended to take with regard to the river and harbor appropriations.

There has for a long time been a strong public sentiment in opposition to these appropriations, but neither the legislative nor executive department have been strong enough to resist the log-rolling processes by which they have been carried through. The fact that President Cleveland has backbone enough to veto a pension bill encourages the opponents of river aud harbor appropriations to believe that ha will sit down on every measure of reckless extravagance. If the president is convinced in his own mind that appropriations for river and harbor improvements are a waste of public money he will undoubtedly veto the. appropriation bill. But it is not so clear that such appropriations are a species of reckless extravagance, and the public is not justilied in taking it for granted that the president is going to interpose the veto power simply for the sake of preserving his reputation of being a veto president.

Mr. Cleveland is a man of progressive ideas, and is expected to sustain a policy of internal improvements by the general government so long as the government is not wasteful or extravagant in its appropriations for that purpose. CHICAGO-ST. LOUIS RIVALRY. There is something amusing in the rivalry between Chicago and St.

Louis, whether it is by accident 01 whether it is done purposely, still it almost invariably happens that if one city has anything to occur of a sensational nature the other is sure to bob up in a few days with a similar 6ensation. It was so in the Preller murder case in St. Louis when a week or two afterwards Chicago turned up with a trunk mystery. Then St. Louis got the lead on the labor riots but Chiaago followed close with something bigger.

Last of all Chicago came to the front with developments concerning the corruption of its bribe-taking city council, and now St. Louis comes in neck and neck with Chicago with sensational developments of the same sort. It is all well enough tor rivalries to exist between two prosperous cities in the way of building up trade and business, but when it comes to the species of rivalry now existing between these two great Western cities the one that is distanced in the race is the one that is the best What Chicago and St. Louis both need is the nerve and moral strength that New York displayed in dealing: with its corrupt municipal government. wThe city that is the lirst to put its corrupt officials inside the penitentiary is the one that will be declared the winner in this race.

A BUSINESS COXfiRESS. The lower house of congress is a very busy body just at this time. It didn't take the time to observe the national holiday, but worked away just as busily on the appropriation bills as if the nation had never been born. We would like to commend this exceptional business fit that has seized congress, but we are disposed to think that it was all because there were no first-class horse or boat races in reach of the national capital yesterday. If there had been congress would have been patriotic enough to have taken a recess as sure as shot.

A JEFFERSOSIAN'S REGRET. If Thomas Jefferson were alive and had been in St. Paul last night he would have sworn off writing any more Declaration's of Independence, especially if he had sensitive nerves. Between the infernal din of popping firecrackers and subjection to British tyrany he would probably have preferred the latter. BROKE THE RECORD.

Yesterday's heat broke the record in the Northwest. According to the statement of the signal officer, yesterday was the hottest day of which there is any record in this section. And every mother's son of. us who sweltered through all the stifling hours of the day will bear testimony to the accuracy of the record. The wasting away in quick consumption of pretty little Daisy Murdoch, who, dressed in the flimsiest material, played Cupid and similar roles in light opera and burlesque, is an example of the fearful price pretty footlight favorites sometimes pay for their notoriety, and is one of the strongest arguments for the existence of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children.

As Secretary Manning's health continues to improve and his spirits rise the spirits of the various gentleman who are looking longingly towards the treasury department experience a corresponding depression. In the meanwhile the smooth running of the department demonstrates that in this government no one man is absolutely essential. It is understood that Congressman MounisoN is standing by with a club ready for the time when Mr. tariff bill shall raise its head. Both gentlemen are being given pretty thoroughly to understand that the country is willing to postpone further tariff discussion until cold weather.

Senator Logan is swinging around the circle in Kansas where the votes lie thickest, and is putting in the time desouncing Cleve- land's pension bill vetoes. Senator Logan is one of those men who have never been able to learn the difference between a demagogue and statesman The alleged discovery in Cincinnati of a brother to Edwin Booth, in the son of THE ST. PAUL DAILY GLOBE, TUESDAY MOBNLNG, JULY 6, a 1885. i I I a slave formerly owned by father, may perhaps be taken as an indication that Cincinnati people are becoming tired of the base ball scandal, and their sensations diversified. Minneapolis cannot afford to jepardizo her reputation as a center of legitimate and wholesome sport by encouraging: brutal dog: fights.

She has had several disgraceful exhibitions of that kind of late. It is about time to "draw the lice." Cattle in the Southwest are dyinff off rapidly, and those which survive are too lean to market. Montana, however, has begun the shipment of fat grass-fed beeves which bring the top prices in the Chicago market. France seems determined to Interfere in the Panama canal enterprise. It is a good time for the president to look up the Monroe doctrine and deliver a lecture on it for France's special benefit.

Pretty much all St. Paul was out of doors yesterday, and found no difficulty iv being amused. The celebration of the day was entirely informal, but it was no less enjoyable on that account. Mtifc In view of the recent reports of disagreements between the president and Secretary Manning, perhaps that bouquet the former sent the latter was composed of olive branches. The successful series of races closed yesterday was au illustration that the Twin Cities can do very well indeed in that line.

They intend to do even better next year. Canada has made three more seizures of American fishing vessels and as yet nothing has been heard from the American navy. Can it have been among the seized? The day was celebrated in St. Paul and vicinity yesterday with characteristic Northwestern energy. Even the weather exerted itself with great warmth.

Every fireman yesterday knew that only eternal vigilance Was the price of safety, and regarded each casual firecracker as his natural enemy. Even though hops are said to be going way up, it is a fair presumption that beer will continue to go down. MIDST THE MADDING TEROITG. HE members of the consulting party were in a physician's office. They the doctor, the ed- and the editor's wife.

"You need perfect rest a mental rest," said the physician addressing the editor. "That's what I have told him," put in the editor's wife. "He is working himself to death." "I can't afford a rest," sadly exclaimed the editorial patient. "I must have a salary right along in order to meet current expenses." "You must not use your brain at all," contended the physician "or I not be responsible for your life, you want all the outdoor exercise possible, in fact you must have it. Can't you get a position on the editorial staff of the Minneapolis Tribune? That will fill the bill exactly." wonderful!" exclaimed one believer of the faith cure class in Minneapolis to another.

"What new evidences of the efficacy of our treatment have you discovered?" queried the second believer. SHPI have successfully 'treated' ray horse, and lam now able to use him. The veterinary doctor told me that the horse could not be used for weeks. I 'treated' him, and the third day I drove him out. It was an injury to his knee.

The horse actually thought that he was badly hurt and that it was painful to move his knee. I have convinced him by our treatment that he labored under a mistake, and he travels now without a limp." "I have not been quite so successful," remarked the second member. "I have been 'treating' a water pipe in my residence. It refused to be 'treated' and has leaked through the ceiling and spoiled everything. It is a great thing for horses but a poor substitute for a plumber." The man, woman or child who has not had enough Fourth of July the present year is bard to satisfy.

The Fourth, falling on Sunday, has enabled the patriotic resident of the land of the boodle alderman and the exhome of the fugitives in Canada to string out their celebration even from Friday midnight to Monday at the twelfth hour. Ministers I have had a show at the day, which they have generally made the most of. Children have played it was the Fourth for two or three days. What the celebration lacked in intensity it made up In duration. The dealers in fireworks have enjoyed it more than any other class of people.

If they had their way about it they would have a three days' celebration every year. "How did you spend the Fourth?" inquired 1 one man of another. "Been very busy," was the reply. "Out of the city?" "Yes, at White Boar lake. "Fishing?" "No." "Firecrackers?" "Not a one." "What in the mischief kept you busy?" "Fighting mosquitoes." The Onlooker.

"TWO PAIRS OF Senator Kenna Throws Down Four of a Kind and. Loses the Pot. Washington Special. Senator Bowen of Colorado is generally conceded to be the finest poker player in Washington. He is also very fond of coaching neophytes in the science.

A short time ago Senator Kenna of West Virginia conceived a longing to learn the game about which ho had heard so irauch. Of course he applied to Bowen for information. The latter was delighted. For several days he gave Kenna lessons in the room of the committee on enrolled bills, of which Bowen is chairman. The West Virginian seemed to make rapid advancement, and the Colorado senator began to boast of the proficiency of his pupil.

It was noticed, too, that whilo both were in the senate chamber they usually occupied adjoining chairs and were often in eager converse. This caused some comment, as the senators are from widely separated sections of the country, belong to opposing parties, and are on no committee together. It was generally understood, though, that POKER WAS THE SUBJECT of conversation, since Bowen had been boasting of Kenna's new acquirement. One night last week a friendly party was gathered in Bowen's room at the Kiggs house. Kennu was there, and so was Dolph of Oregon.whose skill at cards is recognized both here and at home.

During the conversation Bowen started off on the old theme, and lauded Kenna's progress. under his tutorship. Dolph suggested that he would give Kenna a chance to cshow his talent on a fifty-dollar limit game. Kenna looked dubious, but Bowen patted him on the shoulder and told him to go in. The game began with Bowen leaning over his pupil's chair to offer encouragement.

It was stipulated beforehand by Dolph, however, that no suggestions should come from the Colorado man. Dolph put up his dollar ante and Kenna dealt. The latter held A PAIR OF QUEENS a king, a ten, and a seven. With all the eagerness of a neophyte he came in. and, laying his pair aside, discarded the others.

At this point a.couple of Western members came in, and it was some minutes before the game proceeded. Finally Kenna dealt the cards. In the draw he got two queens and an ace. Bowen could hardly restrain his delight, and it was evident from his expression that he longed to yell to his pupil: "Go it my boy for all you are worth!" Kenna did not seem to overpleased, however. beginners generally do, he laid his second pair aside from the first, and putting: his elbows on the table awaited the betting.

Dolph of course thought his opponent had two pairs, as he is a sharp observer during the game. Having three i aces himself he weut about the betting in a I -very confident way. Putting $20. oh the table he looked hard at Bowen to detect any signals that might pass between the teacher and pupil. Bowen Irept the agreement honestly, but HTP FACE WAS RED with suppressed emotion and his flnrers I seemed to sink into the back of the chair.

Kenna, without lookiujr at his cards again, folded his arms aud considered the advisability of coming lv. Finally, remembering what his teacher had told him of Dolph's bluffing schemes, he planked down the $20 and called. "Three noes," said Dolph, showing his hand. ''Beats me," replied Kenna, "I've only got two pairs." At this Bowen could restrain himself no longer, but yelled: "What in yon talking about two pairs for, Kenna? Look at your "1 have looked at it," said Kenna, quietly. 'I had one pair of queens and I drew another pair.

Two pairs, aud the other card is a deuce." At this there was wild laughter from all the lookers-on except Bowen, who I sunk into a Chair with a despairing. look at his promising pupil. Keuna "caught on" after a while, but it was too late. He had thrown up his hand and the pot went to his opponent. Ho laughed heartily himself when he saw the point, and confessed that he had a few things to learn about poker yet.

Bowen has given up his pupil, and freely expresses the opinion that a man who doesn't know that four of a kind beats three aces can never carry the Democratic party, through the next congressional campaign. PRIMROSE IN I'll I SON. The Salvation Army Captain Behind the for Bigamy. Special to the Globe. New Philadelphia, 0., July Capt.

Henry Primrose, leader of the Salvation army here, who was arrested tor bigamy on Saturday was bound over to court in the sum of SI, OOO. He was unable to procure bail and was sent to the Steubenville jail. It was developed that Capt. Primrose was thrice married and had he remained here ten days longer he. doubtless would have had his fourth wife.

He had won the affections of an excellent innocent lass of 18 here, and the day, it is said, had been set for the marriage. This young lady was a nightly attendant at the salvation meetings, and thought as many others here did, that he was a single man. ('apt. Primrose was a dashing young fellow. He could sing louder, pray more fervently, and shout halllelujah with such genuine enthusiasm as to stir up the feelings of the soldiais, and engraft himself into their good graces as a model captain.

At Steubenville, east of he preached in his own original style, and among his hearers was a beautiful young girl, Jennie Stiers. She loved dearly to hear the gallant soldier sing and pray, and her innocent heart went out to him in its entirety. Capt. Ham was her model of everything that was good and true, and in his presence she felt she was filled with good. The young officer proposed to Jennie and they were married at the Methodist Episcopal parsonage by Rev.

Mr. Hollingshead. Matters went smoothly for a few weeks, when one day ere the honeymoon was over, the bride, on reading a Salvation Army cry, happened to notice the name of a Mrs. Primrose of Wilmington, Del. The thought struck her that her husband might have another wife, and she sat down and wrote to the Mrs.

Primrose at Wilmington, making inquiry it she were related to Henry Primrose. The crushing reply came quickly back that she was his lawful wife. It sub- I sequently developed that another wife of his had died at Harrisburg, Pa. On consulting with the authorities she concluded to prosecute Primrose to the full extent of the law. On her complaint a warrant was sworn out and he was arrested here while doing some work at the rolling mill.

He does not deny the much marrying business, but defends himself with the statement that he had been told that his Wilmington wife had procured a divorce. His statements being so contradictory he was held for trial at the common pleas court. The wing of the army has been completely broken up siuce the affair came to light. I. ATE ST.

Indianapolis, July Since Postmaster General Vilas has taken such a firm stand' in the postal clerk controveisy there has arisen a strong feeling in the ranks of the organization that its members have acted hastily and a- stampede is imminent. Many of the clerks are trying by every means in their power to recall their resignations from the custody of the member of the executive committee having them In charge; even going so far as to telegraph to Wasnington not to accept and to threated injunction proceedings against the custodian. This custodian has 103 in his possession, and by order of the grand lodge he is instructed to fill 'in the dates and forward them to Washington whenever so directed by the executive committee. It is now conceded by the members that no considerable number will resign. Fireworks Did It.

The riving Town Celebrates the Fourth-- Roosevelt's Speech. Special to the Globe. Dickinson, July To-day was the most noted in the history of Dickinson, being the first Fourth of July celebration held in the town. It brought together the largest- crowd ever assembled in this county. Morning dawned clear and cool.

The program consisted of a grand parade, races and speeches ending up with fine display of fireworks in the evening. Hon. J. A. Rea, register of the Bismarck land office, delivered an eloquent speech.

He was followed by Hon. Theodore Roosevelt. Following is a brief outline of Roosevelt's oration: I thank the citizens of Dickinson most heartily for the invitation to address them today. The people here assembled are doing: what our forefathers did the early history of the country, building: houses for ourselves and families, but under different circumstances. Here we have a grand country, a territory that will make of the grandest states in the Union.

The hardships of pioneer life in Dakota are not what they were in 1776. We people of to-day may uot see Dakota in nil her glory and grandness, but the people of coming years will witHess the power and priory of this country in its fullness. We are shaping the political destiny of the future. Let us shape It for honest government, that it may compare with the future of our vast industries.
