The stock market opened strong and higher, but. did not long sustain its strength, and the ganegal tendency throughout tin- day was for lower prices, although the bulls succeeded in scoring a point or two about midday. The market closed weak and lower compined with Tuesday's close. Northwestern was I'„ per cent- lower; St. Paul %, Omaha hi, Northern Pacific preferred 1% lower.

The beautiful uncertainty of law was ihoWs on Tuesday by two decisions which were made, one in Davenport and one In Muscatine, lowa, and both of which relate to tin- same precise Issue, and each of which is exactly tbe reverse of the other. In the Davenport case Judge Walter S. Hayes — same who two years ago pronounced the prohibitory amendment uncon- stitutional — on an agreed esse brought before him, decided that justices of the peace have no jurisdiction in prosecutions for violations of the prohibitory law, for the reason that the penalty for such violation may be more than a fine of $100, ami under the constitution of lowa, the powers of the justices of the peace arc limited to offenses iv .Which the penalty does not exceed a line Of $100. The judge thereupon held that in all first offenses in selling liquor penalty of which may be a fine of exceeding $100, Or imprisonment in excess of thirty flays— the accused is entitled to the intervention of a grand jury before he eau be held to answer. The decision of lodge Hayes seems plainly in accord with the constitution of the state. That Instrument says that "all of fences leas than felony in which the punish■sent does not exceed a One of $100, or imprisonment for thirty days, shall be tried summarily before a justice of the peace or other officer authorized by law, on informa-' Hon under oath without indictment, or the Intervention of a grand jury; and DO person shall be held to answer for any higher criminal offence unless on presentment or indictment of a grand jury." As the prohibitory law not on.l permits a penalty in excess of this sum, and allows the ■Sender to be imprisoned till the tine is paid, II would seem that the prohibitory law Las a serious blow, and that, in this particular respect, it is unconstitutional. 0 n the same day, on the ' same precise facts, Judge Stutsman, in Muscatine, rendered a decision to the effect that the law is constitutional, and sustained the jurisdiction Of the justices of the peace. What view of such a result will be presented to the public! Here are two Judicial .officials, who, on precisely the sat: Issue, reach reverse concltisious. Is it that the law makers are so incapable that they cannot construct intelligible: legislation, or that Judges arc so blinded that they cannot interpret the meaning of the laws presented for their examination! Or finally, is it the fact that the judges arc often mere ? creatures of sentiment, and that they construe a law with reference to their own; personal predilections! It is possible that all these faults are involved. * As a rule, legislators arc selected with reference to the polttical support they can command. , This or that man is chosen to make the canvass according as he will strengthen the ticket or secure the .German, or Irish vote, or as a reward for some thing I he has done, or promises to do in the future. I The question as to , • his fitness to make' laws is the very last qualification referred to, and in .fact, in general, is not even thought of. Something of the same sort applies to the election of judges. It is usual to select a lawyer for the position; but beyond this requirement the candidate comes under the same rule that j does the aspirant for the legislature. Is he available, will he strengthen the party, will he adequately reward the strikers who secure his nomination, will he in eases where the Interests of party may be involved favor Lis own political friends? These are the queries .as to his fitness for the position. The lowa decisions probably illustrate all these probable, causes for the selection of the various legislative and judicial candidates. The men .who made the prohibitory law were ordinary politicians who were ignorant of the first principles of law making, and the men who hare interpreted the law made by the legisi lative ignoramuses have no difficulty in I reaching opposite conclusions, each conclusion being possibly in harmouy with the private convictions of the judges as to the advisability of prohibitory legislation. TILE EGYPTIAN QUESTION. The Egyptian question is gelling to he a good deal of a bore in this country, principally tor the reason that few understand its manifold complications, and for the further reason that Egypt is so remote, and its civilization so bizarre that it affords no points with which we can sympathize. But to the few who see beneath the surface, and who include within their vision the probabilities of the future, the Egyptian matter is one of much interest. There is involved in the problem as it now is presented considerably more than the subjugation of the rebellious Soudanese, or the relief of Gordon.. There is additionally included the existence of the slave trade in upper Egypt; t the serfdom or freedom of the Egyptians proper; aud the permanency of the present pacific status of western Europe. It is to be noticed that Immediately after the adjournment of the conference on Monday, Mr. Gladstone gave notice that he would ask for . credit of a million and a half dollars for the expenses ofja force to be sent to the lief of Gordon. This comes di • rbctlyon tint heels of the announcement by Stanley that Gordon is in no danger, and is in a position to escape at any time. As Stanley may be credited with knowing what he is talking about, it would seem as if the real purpose of Mr. Gladstone had reference to some other object than the rescue of a man, who, according to competent authority is in a position to rescue himself. It is therefore quite possible thai Gladstone may propose to send a force into Egypt sufficient not only to rescue Gordon, but to bold the country against hostile efforts from other directions. The news "i the failure of the conference has been received in Paris with much ill feeling; and the Figaro does not exaggerate French sentiment when it asserts that French and English interests are now completely opposed, ad a conflict is inevitable in the near future. I: sneeringly hopes that a latent conflict will not pass Into open hostilities. Mr. Gladstone may not be too suspicious if, in view of the hostility engendered by the failure of the conference, he should, under some pretence, send a column of troops to a point where they are most needed. Should war between France and England grow out of this Egyptian controversy, this country will not be ilisposed to wish either party a complete success. The quarrel is one between two powers each of which is anxious to steal Egypt; It is, in reality, a difikully over the division of spoils. Englan i lias been Induced to commit the violence necessary to secure the plunder, and now France is asked to take a small portion of the plunder, and to assist in guarding the victim till the work of robbery is fully consummated. The purposes of the war bad nothing in them to commend them to the sympathy of good men anywhere, and the manner in which it was conducted by the English alienated from them the respect of civilized people." Not a single prisoner was taken in the Soudan, a fact which would permits horrible inference; but this inference becomes a certainty when one reads in the accounts of the lighting sent on by officers, of the deliberate killing of the wounded Arabs. Nothing more actrocious has occurred since the massacre of the Mexicans by that gigantic robber and assassin, Cortex. In view of this, the outbreak of a war between England and France would Imj regarded as an opportunity during which the shades of the massacred Arabs might be avenged. DOUBLE lit: HANG. Toy ng with Catholic influence, yet-leaving a margin for clearance from the association when it threatens to become damaging with ; the other crowd, is cot alone the peculiarity of Mr. Blame, but of his backers and henchmen it would appear. In a short and comprehensive biography of Stephen B. Elkins, we read that before the war, his father was suntendenl of the eastern division of Ben. Uolliulay's great stage line, and an active Democrat About this time the promising Steve bad graduated at the University of Missouri and was studying law. While bis brothers Joined the rebel army, the profitable foresight of Steve made him a captain en the Union side at the moment of enlistment. The title was serviceable, more si) without service thought tho prudent Pythias of Damon Blame as lie drifted down to New Mexico in 1863, then pretty thoroughly purged of treasonable troops. After a seasoning spell at the law in Santa r... the pushing Steve got into the legislature, and was made district attorney in Johnson's administration. Of course he made money, and of course bis peculiar talents shone in the acquisition of large grants of land, some of which are now rather threatening and troublesome to him. Naturally and of course, too, he was the jolly fast friend of the .-tar route fraternity, who, knowing that his friendship would be more pronounced and potential in congress, helped to elect him delegate in 1873. But the nub of tbe Boston Advertiser's biography is that albeit Steve Is an Episcopalian, ami a vestryman. be is *.» Impressed with the preponderance of Catholic population in New Mexico that he has endowed some of their insti- j is educational or charitable most hand• soinely? Well, no. not at all. in no wise. ..Steve's persoualitv, if not Ms munificence. shines through he glass darkly, therefore suggestively lined, too, in more continuous pertiirenee. of a mortal window in the Roman Catholic cathedral which is inscribed: To the memory of CBS B. B1 X 28, 1841J llitM * — - Now. then, the as alive soul is more shocked at this invasion of time-honored and rigkily enforced exelusiveness on the part of the church than it would be at the interment of a heretic or backsliding corpse in -• crate I ground. Is it to be regarded as one of the churches concessions to Mac American spirit of the age, -which gloritiss money beyond every other fact and la willing to recognize It in l the house of God side by side with virtues which have no growth in money! ' We ought to know. Mr. Blame could not help being born of a Catholic mother, but surely Mr. Elkins could help having the showy tribute to bis Catholic "sympathies" in that compromising draL It is in order for one and all of Steve's Episcopalian pastors to explain to straightseeing folk how it all happened. If managed ST. PAUL DAILY GLOBE. THURSDAY MORNING' AUGUST 7, 1884 by his directing adroitness there is no reason why desirable votes may not be absorbed by the evasion, while, not alienating the controlling dissension of the other elde which, after all, will not care so very much for that semi-inculpating memorial window when possessing the substantially-heeled Steve in the flesh. .',>'-,-':■: A VELTjUW FEELING. Th New York Evangelist a religious paper published in New York city, 'and which has been brought, into Mr. Blame's political bureau, by purchase or otherwise, holds the following language in an editorial in its issue of July 31-: ,-.>;..■ . But we do not care to argue this matter, because we have a shorter way to satisfy ourselves. Our opinion of Mr. Blame may be worth nothing, nor the opinion of those who have met him only in the society of Washington. Hut surely there was one man who ought to have known him through and through — who was with him for twenty years in Congress, at the very time that all these charges were investigated, and who thought so little of them that they did not impair his respect or his confidence in the slightest degree. On the contrary, when this man Gen. Garfield, was elected president of the United States, he chose Mr. Blame as his confidential adviser. He called him to the first place in his - cabinet,' thus giving the highest possible proof of his unshaken trust If Gen Garfield had any doubt of his Integrity, he was guilty of a great wrong to his country in placing him in a position of such responsibility. His action speaks louder than words. He did not distrust Mr. Blame. He had not only admiration for his splendid abilities, but the warmest personal regard, for.the man. • Those who have seen them together could not help seeing that the lie which bound them to each other was not an ordiynar friendship, but a strong personal attachment, which implied an absolute mutual trust and confidence. c Could any testimony further go? This single fact is enough to answer a thoiiand sneers and suspicions. To all the attacks upon Mr. Blame, his friends have one short but sufficient answer li What was good enough for President Garfield, is good enough for us." Can it be possible that the Christian editor forgets the trite expression, "a fellow feeling makes us wondrous kind." At the time Blame was manipulating the Fort Smith railroad enterprise, writing Mulligan letters, etc., etc., Mr. Garfield was undergoing investigation in the matter of the DeGolyer pavement and credit mobilier. Mr. Poland was chairman of the committee of investigation, aud if any doubt arises in regard to the crookedness of Mr. Garfield it will be dispelled by a careful perusal of the report of the committee. The New York Tribune declared that Garfield was a ruined . man, whose reputation for honesty and integritywas forever blackened. ' ' Democratic authority is not invoked to establish Garfield's record. In these dark and •devious paths he met Blame and they became fast friends. It is not strange that a fellow feeling made, them bosom friends, and that Blame should be called to a confidential place in his cabinet. "Lot Him that is without Sin Cast the First ! Stone." Brother Ball who has been prominent in the circulation of the slanders on Mr. Cleveland, has evidently "got his foot into it." He seems to be a black sheep himself and few will be disposed to give much weight to his testimony after reading the following: A special from Owcnsville, Ind., to the Sentinel '■ says: "The people of our country do not think j much of the Rev. Mr. Ball, of Buffalo. They remember., the record he made in this county'; when he was. here only about a year ago. Does I he not remember* the insult he gave a Christian lady in the town of Uwensville, the hem of whose garments In is not worthy to touch? He was offered the choice of humbly apologizing 10 the lady or a sound thrashing. He selected the former and left town next day.'' "Thy, Will lie Done." The subject of Monsignor Capel's lecture last night was the Obedience of Faith, and the obstacles to the search for that faith. The learned gentleman treats upon the words of the Lord's prayer, "Thy will be done." He says God gave us free will but subjected that free will to his law and that he was a God of truth that gave us this law, and consequently it must be a just one. The infinite goodness of God being the great safeguard against sin. That the impossibility of God's committing sin is not an argument against his omnipotency. Speaking of the growth of infidelity he says: They take from us a God, a comforter and an eternity. He showed by this how sweet is that yoke of obedience to God as his laws are so just and merciful, and how foolish man is to throw off this yoke for what Infidelity gives in return, namely, nothing but the cares and trials of this life. The monsignor then took up the objections to the search for truth among those not possessed of it. and the reason those having this truth do not follow its dictates, to-wit: the prejudice and oftentimes the loss of fortune or influence, He stated that if be, himself, born a Catholic, of Catholic parents, but.brought up among a Protestant community, was already frost-bitten in faith in his early days on account of the prejudices against bis creed, and stated that oil the issue of a decree of the pope, reinstating the hierarchy, be and a number of Catholic boys had been stoned on the street-. How much more difficult for an unbeliever to search for light where those who were possessors of it suffered such persecution. Be concluded his discourse by earnestly entreating his hearers to pray for light to find the truth, and for courage to act upon it. PERSONALS.

The Valuable Resume Made by Secretary Hart as the Result of Visitiug 183 Institutions. Secretary Hart, of the state bond of corrections and charities, presented a valuable report at the meeting on Tuesday, which demand upon our space prevented having such, attention- as it deserved. .;■ 'Vr y '\, . The report opens with the statement that the service as secretary for the first year is completed, in which 188 visits of inspection to public institutions, fifty-two of which were in the outside' state's of Wisconsin, Illinois, Kentucky, Ohio, Michigan, New York, Dakota and Montana. In Minnesota he has visited eighty-seven institutions, and forty-nine additional visits to the same, making 186 visits in the state. Besides these he has visited the offices of the board of charities in Illinois, Ohio and Michigan, .to post ' himself and several counties of the state to examine' into the condition of children sent into the state as immigrants. He then goes on to note his study and examination into the history and statistics of the institutions of Minnesota,' which he thinks will crop out in more desirable results than some more conspicuous lines of work. He thus proceeds to show what the board has accomplished: - "•-. . The board has become acquainted with the state institutions, and has gained the confidence of their officers, making meanwhile some real advance in knowledge of the principles which govern them. It has secured the co-operation and apparent good will of the county officers ! generally with whom it has come into relations. Its suggestions have been listened to -with courtesy, and its strictures have been borne with patience. .The following are some of the,, results of the year's work : Comparative statistics of proper ' expenses have been published, which enable county authorities for the first time to compare their work intelligently with that of their neighbors, and have drawn attention of ' tome counties to their excessive or dificient expenditure. Among the latter results the following are mentioned: The fixing of 7 the aggregate salary of county physicians at $775 in Goodhue county which last year paid out §3,700 for medical attendance ; the stirring up of the authorities of Washington county by the exhibit of its high rate of expenditure: the dissuading of Marshall county from building a poor house, and the leading of the authorities of Todd and Becker counties to look at the poor house subject in a new light; the dissuading of the Stevens county commissions from laying a poor farm: the idea of holding a police station or at least a block of cells in tho basement of the proposed city hall: the examination and approval of a plan of the Nicollet county commissioners for a separate building for male paupers in its poorhouse : the submission of the Becker county commissioners to the board of plans for a county jail and • a promise to carry out its suggestions as far as possible, and the proposed similar submission of plans for the new Goodhue county jail; the modifications of plans of a building almost completed by the Wabashaw county commissioners in accordance with the suggestions of the board; the return of an insane patient, which had cost the state f1.'.0 and was evidently settled upon it for life to the charge of the United States government; a careful examination of most of the county institutions for the first time. The secretary concludes with the assertion that the board has found work which it is hoped will prove valuable to the state. That he has given a large amount of time to making the objects of the board known and that the last quarter he has spoken at Minneapolis, Winona, Northfield, Owatoana, Anoka, Jaucsville, Sleepy Eye, Worthington and Glendon in this state and at Miles City and Helens. Montana, having invitations to speak on the subject in St. Paul, Faribault, Austin, Elk Rli'or and Dei oit. WOHK 07 THE QUARTER. The secretary made sixty-four visits of inspection during the lust quarter, in which he visited the city aud village lockups in St. Paul, Winona, Xorthfield, Faribault, Waseca, Janesville, Ortonville, Brown's Valley, Owatonna, Redwood Falls, . Sleepy Eye, Mankato, Glyndon, Detroit and Austin. Of these he states only five are suitable places to lock up a prisoner over night, viz: Winona, Xorthfield, Redwood Fulls, Mankato and Detroit, and of these only Mankato, Xorthfield and Redwood Falls have satisfactory structure?. The Xortfield lockup is a model worthy of imitation by towns, its onlydefect being that the padlocks are within reach of the prisoners. The Mankoto lockup has three cells which are, of iron and cost $400, which are located hi the., engine room of the fire department,* whicll saves extra fuel and insures cleanliness, as' the I fire" men will tolerate no filth. The Redwood Falls lockup is a model for a small village and is neatly kept. The Detroit lockup is built of rough pine lumber. The prisoners sleep on the floor without bunks, but it is unusually well kept. This is owing to a village ordinance, which makes the village marshal responsible for keeping the lock-up constantly in a cleanly and bealthfuTcondition, and for serving a prisoner with wholesome food three times a day. Such an ordinance says the secretary faithfully enforced would abate at least forty public nuisances in the state of Minnesota. The Winona city prison is kept dean but ,• is poorly lighted. In the basement is a tramp room in frequent use in the summer, which is the worst place the secretary has ever seen for for the confinement of human beings. It has two small windows, two wooden benches for seats and bunks, has no bedding or water close t, the buckets were full and the floor was covered with filth. The officer in charge said it was "good enough for tramps." The Waseca lockup is equally abominable except it is above ground. The city prison of St. Paul is in the rear of the city hall. It consists of a tramp's lodging room, 1.-.\ti:i feet, eleven cells for men and two. for women, with a corridor running the whole length of the men's department. Tho cells are of oak plank, 4xM feet sad seven feet high. The j top of the cells is of open wood-work, allowing -air to circulate. Female prisoners have to be conducted through the corridors of the male department in full view of the male prisoners. The female cells are separated from the tramps lodging room only by a partition some eight feet high, ' the upper part of . the room being nnpartitioned. An old 1 bnffslr* coat constitutes most of the bedding of this department. The men's department is badly lighted and has no ventilation except through windows. I visited this prison on Monday morning, May "8. it was a chilly ' morning, and the only ventilation was through a window , opened into a ttible of the patrol wagon adjoining. The stench from the unwashed prisoners and the open cell buckets was sickening. Fifteen prisoners were led out, of whom three were women. One of these was a young insane woman, charged with arson, .--he had bean locked up for thirty-six hours. A prostitute was locked up in the same cell to prevent her harming herself. Iv the absence of evidence of insanity the judge bound her ' over and she was sent to the county jail, where she was examined, found insane and sent to St. Peter. The other lockups visited were of the usual type and call for no remark beyond the fact that they are nearly all dirty, insecure and liable to great danger from fire. Fourteen county jails were visited, viz: Big Stone, Bloc Earth, Fiiiiuore, Houston, LeSeuer, j Mcwer. Ohcetesd, Ramsey. Renville, Bice, Sibley. Swift. Urinous and Waseca counties. The condition of insane persons being iuccrcerated in ! county jail* for safe keeping with- express ; warrant of law was condemned. The case of ' an insane man, without proper attention or care. ' in the Ramsey county jail, was instanced. | The Big Stone county jail is stated as insecure : and exposed to great danger from fire. The ' Blr.e Earth jaii is clean and well kept but prisoners having escaped by prying off the window bars with billets of wood. It is well lighted red moderately ventilated, the cells are of brick an:'. notwithstanding its insecurity it serais preferable to some of the more modern jails. 'N.,v.-,,: The Fillmore county jail is characterised as a i relic of the dead ages, and is in need of remodeli ing. Its - cell.* are as dark as dungeons. The stove is set close to the Inner door, and if a fire should cot started the prisoners would be roasted alive, the ofticers sleeping in another part of the building. The rooms for women and boys are ah-4» in bad order. Houston county has a $30,000 jail, the dupl; cate nearly of that at Winona, with room f. r twentj-four prisoners, when, r^riiy over six are in conine me nt at a time. The corridors are well lighted, bat the cells are dark, and each man is furnished wi:o bedding and towels. The jail ; room is Mastt and ii feet high, causing a great j expense for heating, which is set down as a piece ! of jail budding folly. Lc Saer has a new cage pattern jail with aT tie modern improvement* costing $14,000. Iticlean and wholesome, provided with good bedding and separate apartments for men sad boys. It however is very dark: of extensive heating j size, and would be fire proof if not for its wooden roof. Mower county jail .is a ruinous cracked brick building which is in im- I minent danger of tumbling down. It* cells , are ' ..tiifctf-d dungeons no: At for the occupancy of humanity. There is nothing good to be said of the institution exrept the prisoners are well ' j fed. The construction makes it unsafe for toe ' ! jailer to enter it for fear of violence,' and he 1 ! pours in water for the thirsty prisoners by a tin spoat leading from the outside. It is rumored thai the county commissioners intend . putting - cells into the ha sanest jf their bcaniifii court ' honse. which would be a great blander. ' I The Olmsted county ja3 is a primitive strsci tnre entirely inadequate to the needs o the county I and very insecure. RenTilie county jail mon a I hid and" is the only ksdUksg visible in appronehf ms Bearer 'Falls. •■ It is attended to by a -jailer Bring at" the foot of said hill, sad the key was found in the possession ; of ' its' single prisoner working outside, who was sentenced for beating his wife so that in her fright she jumped into a well and was drowned. The building is of stone lined with wood; is insecure, . is a nuisance on account of vermin, etc., and should be abandoned or remodeled. The Sibley county jail and residence cost $5,000; it is of brick with wooden walls, and is very insecure. Prisoners have escaped by digging under the walls with a case knife, but they could have more easily cut through the structure. The only prisoner for two years was in confinement at, the time of the break . The jail is clean and well kept, with good j bedding, • and Sheriff Bray has been in charge for sixteen years. The Swift county jail was empty. It is of wood and in one end of the courthouse, and is so insecure that a guard has to be | kept on duty* when it is occupied. The Waseca county jail is an exceptionally good one, and resembles that at Winona in structure and administration. - The Rice county jail is a stone buiiding.ill ventilated, not very secure, and was over crowded when visited.* ' • The poor houses of Becker,Blne Earth, Dodge, Fillmore, Houston, Mower, Olmsted and Rice counties were visited. The Beeker farm and improvements cost $4,450. The buildings are of little value, and are rotting down, ■ and the soil of the farm is not superior. It cost the county $1,500 last year for four paupers on this farm, or at the rate of $1 per day each. The commissioners pay the overseer $000 a year ' and board. They would save money to give him the farm rent free -and pay him 53. 50 per week for the board ofeach pauper. As it stands tbe farm is a very expensive luxury for the county.- Blue Earth county has probably on the whole the best poor house in the state, except Hennepin county. The farm of 160 acres cost $2,000, and the buildings $5,300. It is a two-story frame with basement, and the sexes are completely separate as to lodging rooms. The overseer receives $400 per annum and board for himself and three children, and there are twelve inmates. The institution is a credit to the county. ' ',v' : ;': v. Dodge county has a 100 acre poor farm five miles from the village of Kassou with a. new house built upon it in 1881. The overseer is better housed than any except in Hennepin. The -paupers are separated by the women being quartered down and the men up stairs. Small separate sitting rooms are provided for both sexes, while there are quarters for six more men in a building outside the main structure. The poor house is among the five best in the state. Fillmore has a 395 acre poor farm, 'costing with buildings $12,000. The farm is a valuable one and finely located. It is skilfully managed by Overseer Avery and pays the entire expense of supporting its average twenty inmates, including food, clothing and wages of help and support of overseer's family. The overseer's salary of $500 a year is the only draft on the county treasurer. This record is not equaled in the state. The paupers are well fed, everything is clean ; and wholesome, there are no vermin, and the administration is good in every respect. In view of this excellence, it is a lasting disgrace that the county does not give their overseer decent facilities to do his work, and comfortable" apartments to live in, but compels his family to use the same dining room as the paupers, and to submit to other unpardonable nuisances. The overseer has with his family became accustomed to this indecent overcrowding until they accept it as inevitable. But let Fillmore cease to boast of spending only ten cents per capita of her population for pauperism until she has put a stop to such inhumanity as this. ';--;. In Houston county the poor house is an old tavern building on a 200 acre farm eleven miles from Caledonia, and is in un unfit and dilapidated condition. The house is very dangerous in case of fire and the cellar walls are tumbling in, Privacy is not secured to the overseer's family. The overseer is virtually working for his board and that of his children, while his I wife works like a servant and earns fully the $150 salary paid for the services of both. Houston has spent $30,000 on a jail, when $10,000 would have been sufficient, and is building a court house handsome enough for Ramsey county, but it is not to her credit to keep her paupers in a fire trap. Her poor fund is ten cents per capita and her overseer is not paid enough to keep him out of a poor house, which is neither to its good name or credit. ' • '-;-; •."■' Mower county has a farm of 100 acres four miles from Austin. It has a farm house upon it which is not adapted to keeping paupers. There are but few inmates, the overseer has fair pay, the house is clean and the overseer's family have comfortable separate apartments. The poor rate is lower than that of Fillmore or Houston, but the poor house Is run on a more liberal plan being better furnished and better si pplicd with conveniences. The Olmsted county poor house is three miles from Rochester, it is of stone and intended for a dwelling house. A new wooden addition is being added thereto for the overseer ai d the old building is about to be renovated. The present overseer has held the place for nine years, his administration being very economical, the net cost to the county .-.ring $800 last year. His salary is $050 and he furnishes all the teams and help. The Ilicc county poor farm is two and onehalf miles from Faribault, contains 160 acres of land which coat with buildings $7,000. The house is old aud dilapitated, but it provides for the comslete seperatlon of the sexes. All is very clean and neat, but the men's department which is badly furnished and has uneven and dirty floors. Aside from this the administration of the overseer who receives $500 salary and board for his family, is very good. The county furnishes everything and pays all the help. The secretary has visited each one of the state institutions during the quarter, except the first hospital for the insane, which was visited by Gen. Berry. The , state prison will be greatly improved in its rebuilding in its hospital, chapel, bathing and feeding accommodations. The only unsatisfactory part of the work is the female department. The iron cells, most of them dark and ill-ventilated, are by no means up to the general standard of the prison.

The Northwestern league teams are rushing into oblivion at such a rapid rate that it is becoming a question whether or not the organization will not entirely peter out before the fall of the leaf. We clip the following from the Milwaukee Sentinel: A dispatch received late last night from Terre Haute, Ind., announces the death of the Terre Haute club. Most of the players are said to have offers from other clubs in the Northwestern league. ;:':;». Information was also received here yesterday that the Peoria club would be disbanded to-day. This makes four within the week. The Peoria club was one of the strong leaders, and the town was always regarded as a good one, but two years of base ball, with -an expensive club,' was more than the place could stand, and it will join Bay City, Stillwater, Terre Haute and Fort Wayne. With the exception ef Milwaukee, Minneapolis and St. Paul, there is no town in the Northwestern league that averages an attendance that ivil! more than pay the $75 guarantee to the visiting club. Grand Rapids, although possessing a winning club, is a veritable graveyard to the base ball fraternity, while the sawdust on the seats of the Muskegon grounds is but rarely disturbed by spectators. It would be a good thing if the number of clubs could be reduced to Biz, say Minneapolis, St. Paul, Saginaw, Grand Rapids, Quincy and Milwaukee, and thus finish the season. The games would be closer, and consequently a larger attendance would be insured. A meeting of the Northwestern league will be held as soon as possible, and the schedule again revised. Red Cups vs. Crescent. The Red Caps of this city meet the Eau Claire Crescents, at the League park, West Seventh street, Saturday, Aug. 9, this being their third game, two of which have been played at Eau Claire. The first visit resulted in a victory for the Red Caps, the second in favor of the Crescents. The battery and players of the visitors are composed of nearly all the Madison college nine, and a close contest.may be expected as both teams will endeavor to gain the pennant for which they have been scheduled. The names of the nine will be published in Saturday morning's papers. I'.n/i'.i! • Races, Buffalo, Aug. 6. The nineteenth annual meeting of the Buffalo Driving Park association opened to-day. Owing to a heavy rain Sunday and Monday it was deemed advisable to postpone the opening one day, so the regular program will be carried out one day behind. The attendance numbered fully 20,000. The ladies turned out in full force. The tracks were in first class shape and very fast, but a strong wind blew in the faces of the horses coming home. Pools sold without hindrance. * First race, 2:30 class, made np to take the place of the 2:25 pacing race, which failed to till, The entries were Charley Hogan, Pearl, Lillie Dale, Tom Cameron and Frank Hall.

The first quarter was made in 85, the half mile in ] :0(^, three-aunitor pole in 1 :8b. After swing, ing into the home stretch he moved ' unsteadily, broke into a run at the distance stand and passed under the wire on a run in 2:08?f. People crowded on the track for the announcement of the time, and many were disappointed, as they wagered he would beat his record. It was an- I need that following the third heat of the 2:21 race he would make another trial, but this was a still greater disappointment to Westmont's admirers. Starting off on a rapid, steady gait, he i r ached the quarter in 31 half 1 :03 t iree-ijuarters in 1 :34. Coming home at the distance stand Westmont broke badly and lost fully two seconds before he was steadied. He came In under the wire in 2:09. The wind had somewhat subsided bat was still pretty fresh and an uneven spot at the distance doubtless caused the break. Johnson stated it was impossible to get Westmont over hi.- bad spot without a break, so a third attempt was not made. Friday promises to be the exciting day, as .fay Eye See will trot on exhibition that day to beat hi» record. Brighton Beach Races. New Yock.

Missouri Pacific Train Ditched at Whitesboro, Texas.— Twenty Persons Injured. WiiiTEsßono. Tex., Ang. 6.— The south bound i passenger train on the Missouri Pacific- was derailed and ditched at 3 o'clock this morning, four miles north of Whitesboro. The hind truck of the postal car jumped the track, while tbe baggage, express and smoking cars were thrown violently on their sides. Following is a list of tne injured: J. F. Probest, Dentware Bend, Tex., cut near the eye, shoulder injured. J. C. Parker, of Warren's Flats, Texas; upper lip cut. Francis Brown, Swicoxie, Missouri; shoulder bruised. W. E. McMahon,' Sherman, Texas, express messenger, injured about the abdomen. -I. P. McKenzie, Ivenoshire, Scotland, shoulder and chest brnised. G. P. Holt, Van Buren, Indian territory, lip cut; wife also bruised. S. C. Taylor, Dripping Springs, Texas, shoulder bruised. -.-:,'..' Corductor Sherwood, in charge of train, severely injured. Drs. Beall and Smith, of Fort Worth, being on the train, rendered immediate assistance. Dr. Beal was injured about the knee. A special train from Denison brought medical assistance. The injured are being cared for by the railroad company. The Case Well Stated. Hon. Patrick Collins, of Boston, the ffrst president of the National League in this country and at present chairman of the Democratic committee of Massachusetts, spoke last week, and the St. Louis Republican thus epitomized his speech : WORDS FITLY SPOKES'. There is a vast amount of demagogism being spoken and printed at this time to influence the votes of foreign horn citizens, much of which is utterly discreditable to those who utter it, and that must be extremely distasteful to those to whom and of whom it is uttered. From this sort of partisan rubbish it is a genuine pleasure to turn to the sentiments proclaimed by Hon. Patrick A. Collins, of Massachusetts, in a speech delivered at Albany, X. V., at the recent ratifl cation meeting. The distinguished speaker on that occasion said : "Those of us who were born . in Ireland, or spring from the Irish race, arc here to stay.- Whatever our Irish affiliations, ties or affections may be—and I hope they are many — In American politics we are Americans, pure and simple. We ask nothing ou account of our race or creed and we submit to no slight or injury on account of either. We and our children and our children's children are here merged in this great, free, composite nationality, true ::nd loyal citizens of the state and federal systems, sharing in the burdens and the blessings of the freest people of the earth. All we ask is equality for us and ours. The man who takes less or demands more is no true American. Those who seek to make us a clamoring class in the community, seeking to use American political means to other than American ends, are merely inverting Know-Nothing- Ism, and playing upon the impulses of men for their own selfish purposes. It is no compliment to us that schemers fancy we can be thus played upon, We are taking part in an American election contest, in which the question to he decided is this: Which of the parties will give the best administration — the safest. purest, most economical? Under which will the country be most likely to be prosperous at home and respected abroad?" The dignity and manhood of these utterances appeal at once to the heart and the judgment of every citizen. Every true American whether he he of native or foreign birth, will approve this as the right view of a much talked of feature of our politics. It is certain that the nationality to whom Mr. Collins spoke will not only endorse every word he said, but will thank him for expressing their sentiments in language so forcible and impossible to be misinterpreted and misunderstood. In the course of his remarks the Seme speaker gave the reasons which influence him and those who believe with him to support the Democratic ticket. He said: "We prefer to take this trip at least with the party that never trailed the American flag in the dust it home or abroad; that made the declaration, 'I am an American citizen," the key to open the prison door abroad to the court room or to liberty; that acquired the mighty western domain; that fostered our plantations and our industries till the land blossomed in prosperity and gladness; the party that stood by the farmer and workingman against monopoly and greed the party that stood in all its days by the foreigner against every form of proscription and tyranny. It is the party of the people, of local self-government, individual liberty, pure* and economical administration." These are reasons which ought to have equal force will) all Americans. They are of the very essence of the contest now going on. All citizens of all classes are affected alike by them. Wall Street Excited. Xew York, Aug. 6.— Some startling disclosures were made to-day in Wall street regarding the affairs of the late J. Ogden Wotherspoon, broker, 45 William street, who committed sul cide June 2.", Inst. It is said on March 25, Inst, he purchased from the Queen Insurance company '• a bill of exchange for £6,000 On the following day he returned and said a customer for whom he purchased the bill desired to j convert it into two bills for £2,000 and £4,000 respectively. This the company agreed to do, and tbe 68,000 bill delivered up with signatures torn off showing it had been duly cancelled. It lately has been discovered that the bill returned was forged and the original bill had been hypothecated for $15,000. with a banking house in Wall street, which will be the loser in the transaction. It is also said the Hong Kong and Shanghai banking corporations, a few days before Wotherspoon's death, gave him a bill of exchange for (2,500 to sell and he never accounted for proceeds. Wotherspoon was well known in financial circles and these disclosures of fraud is the topic of widespread comment to-day in Wall street. • Fire in the United States Capitol. Washington, Aug. 6.— Early this morning a fire was discovered by tbe police at the capitol in a large office on the west sale. It apparently bad been burning some time, far when the watchmen, warned by the smell of burning paint, entered the clerk's office and opened the closet door, the flames burst forth fiercely, and it took them hnlf an hour to get it under control. It was finally extinguished without much damage. Only the fact that ii.<- closet bad tire proof walls prevented a disastrous emigration. The watchmen say if the fire bsd occurred in some of the rooms on the upper floor, tin law library, for instance, they probably would not have been able to discover it until it was beyond control. The origin of the jre Is unknown. The closet was locked and contained nothing but papers, members' account for stationery, which bad been accumulating for twenty years. The watchmen were obliged to break the window to get into the clerk's room. Butler Waiting for Cleveland's Letter. Boston, August 6.— The following letter is self explanatory: Boston, Aognst 0, 1884. — Hon. Chas. A. Dana, editor .fun.

Review: Mr. E. 8, Warner, of Garden city, and assistant railroad commissioner, is already in the field for the legislature from the Garden City district, and is taking quite a deep Interest in "the crops" of'his district. Mr. 11. C. Howard is also named us a candidate for the same nomination, and as both gentlemen are voters in Garden City, it would serin to place their fellow citizens in an unpleasant situation to be compelled to choose between them. Both are Republicans, both are alliance, anti-monopoly and anti-tartS men, and the contest will settle down to a ma'tei of personal preference where both are popular. Which shall it be! On Monday morning a young man about twenty-one, dudishly Inclined, and capable of using the most polite language Imaginable, arrived in town and began to tell the story that he was a graduate of, Princeton college and was on his way to his home. He said he was dead broke and invariably asked for twenty-five rents, and he raked in a number or stray quarters. He has endeavored to heal his way at most places he goes, ami from his queer manner one might consider him out of his right mind, lie has been under the surveilance of the police most of the time as ii good subject to look after.
