St. Paul, Sept. 4. The Pioneer Press
special Irora Pierre, S. D., says: The
electiOD of Pierre as the capital ol South
Dakota bids fair to create a boom which
will outrival that of Oklahoma last spring.
StraDgurs are flecking into the city by
thousands. Over SoOO.OOO worth ot pro

which could have been bought a week
ago for $100 were sold ta-day for 51000
Tacoma, Oct. 4. At a conterence to
day between Union Pacific and Northern
Pacific railway men, an agreement was
arrived at whereby the Union Pacific,
which is now building from Port Town
Bind to Portland, will cross the Northern
Pacific at a point between Chehalis and
Winlock, at the town of Eleanor.
The location is a very eligible one, from
a railroad standpoint. Of course the
iunction of these two roads will make a
town of considerable importance.
SroxANE Falls, Wn., Oct. 4. The pro
secution in the case of Policeman William
Gillespie, on examination before Justice
Dunning on a charge of grand larceny of
relief supp.ies, completed the examina
tion of witnesses to-uav and rested their
case. The defense, on cross-examination,
iutioduced a large number of orders
which had been filled and signed by per
sons not members of the relief committee,
on whose orders alone supplies were to be
issued. Harry Hay ward, who bad charge
of the supplies, testified that he never
tilled such orders, and that if they were
failed it was by his employes on their own
1 be attorneys lor the defense mam
tamed that it was a free pitch in for
everybody and that Gillespie pitched in
with the rest. They also raised the point
that as the goods were taken by defend
ant on different occasions, be was only
guilty of petty larceny in each case; that
these several cases could not be linked
toge'ber to constitute grand larceny.
The point was overruled.
Huron, S. D., Oct. 4, Chairman T.
F. Tundley, of the Democratic state
central committee, to-night placed the
total Democratic vote in the state at
30,000, and claims twenty Democratic
members of the legislature. He says
that the vote is larger than was expected,
Secretary Uusbell, of tie state prohibi

Washington, Oct. 4. Commercial
Agent Jas. IT. Smith, stationed at May

The friends of H. W. Fairweather, Re
publican nominee for the senate in the
Third district, now claim his election by
4 msjonty.
John F. Gowey, chairman ot the Re
publican committee, telegraphs Vice
Chairman Fairweather, that- the Repuli
cans have elected 98 members of the leg
islature. The Democrats have 7 barely
enough for a caucus.
Helena, Mont. Oct. 4. The legisla
tive results are still iu doubt. The Re
publicans claim a minority ol one on
joint ballot, the senate being a lie. This
includes three Republican representa
tives from Silver Bow. The Democrats
elaim all but one in that county, and a
safe nmjonty of live on joint ballot,
which may possibly reach nine. Appear
ances lavor a Democratic majority, but
the Republicans allege fraud in Butte
and Annaconda, and will doubtless tett
the validity of the returr3. It success
ful, they will secure a majority on joint
ballet aud also elect 'ower, Rep., gov
ernor. v
Last night conservative Republicans
conceded the election of Toole, Dtm,
governor by 45. To day this majority is
apparently enlarged to 300 and possibly
500. There is no doubt of Toole's elec
tion by a safe majority. The Democrats
concede Carter's mnjority by 900. The
Republicans claim 1200.
New York, Oct. 4. Within the last
month the pnee of the stock of the St
Paul, Minneapolis & Manitoba Railroad
Company has advanced 'about twenty
points to 120, The reason for this appre
ciation is now made clear by the circular
issued by the company last night. It
sets forth that within the last ten years
the railways under the management of the
company have increased their mileage
from 640 to 3200 miles. J urther exten
sion will be necessary, and with a view of
merging the control and concentrating
the tiuances of the system it bas been
determined to organize a new corpora
Chicago, Oct. 4. A Washington
special to the Herald, Dem.. says that
Blaine's American congress, whose sur
face has appeared eo tranquil, rtally
started off with a storm, which at one
time threatened to wreck the hopes of its
projector. The trouble was all about
Blaine's being elected president. On
Tuesday, when it became apparent that
the secretary of state would be chosen to
preside, the Central and South
American delegates went iato
secret session, and the proposi
tion to make Blaine president ot the
congress was denounced as unfair, illegal
and unprecedented. The point made was
that Blaine was not . a member of the
congress, and that be could not preside
continnously. The conference lasted un
til midnight. On the adjournment, sev
eral members declared that they would
not attend the meeting of the congress
the next day, at which Blaine was to be
elected president.
The delegation from Chili and the Ar
gentine Republic kept their word.. Tbey
attended neither the meetiug of the con
gress, nor the president's reception, and
have not yet joined the excursion which
the congress is making through the coun
try. Whether they will at any time par
ticipate in the sessions of the congress,
with Blaine sitting as president, remains
to be seen.

man found lying beneath the Jackson
street bridge Wednesday moruing, was
photographed and buried to day. It is
thought that he may be Scott Evans, an
engineer, late from Mobile, but this is
not settled. There is very strong suspi
cion that the man met with foul play.
and a diligent investigation is being mad
by the police.
St. Louis, Oct. 4 A special from the
City of Mexioo says: Secretary Blaine's
address at the openirg of the liiternation
al congress of American nations was well
received here. CJommcnls were neara on
the streets to-day which place it as the
strongest utterance of the class ever
enunciated by an American.
The Mexican delegation to the inter
national American congress, it is expec
ted here, will bring up the question rf the
high tariff of the United States.
Tacoma, Wn.. Oct. 0. A meeting of
business men was held at The Tacoma
to-night where the present city govern
menl was deBCunced in the most unqual
ified terms, and some of the speakers
referred to the present mayor as being
half intoxicated at alt times. Une speak
er said the votes given in favor of a sa
loon license on Tacoma avenue last night
were in favor of dives, thieves, tootpads
and thugs of this city.
Tacoma, Wn., Oct. 6. An operation
was performed on young Crosby to-day,
and twentv-tix inches of torn intestines
were removed. He is under the influ

ery. If he can only survive lor thirty-six
hours after the operation they think there
is every chance for his life.

The followers of Boulanger are deserting
him. M. LaGucrre atd other former
Boulangists have ceased to mention the
general's name, styling themselves only
levisionists. It is tstimated that two
thirds of the 183 constituencies which
balloted to-day have gone republican.
The conservatives calculated upon the
return of two of their candidates in Paris.
All members of the national committee
will confer with Boulanger in Loudon on
1 uesday next, prior to bis departure lor
the Isle of Jersey.
Returns from 170 districts in which
ballots were taken show the election of
127 republicans and 48 anti-republicans.
Paris, Oct. 6. A Berlin correspond
ent of the Journal Best Debate asserts
that Prince Bismarck, in receiving the
president of the woodworkers congress,
said : "The foreign situation is so peace
ful that you may set to work without
the slightest fear. It was not always so.
Not long ago England still hesitatid
whether to act as a mad bull or as a fat

in any particular leature, nor will we
permit any of the proposed legislation
looking to the control by congress of
elections, for we see very plainly what
the purpose of that is. The same can be
said of contested cases that will come up
before congress. We do not propose to
allow the Republican majority -to be
further increased ad libitum by throwing
out Democratic members, as seems to be
the purpose. In other words, we propose
to exercise control of the bouse just as
much as though we were still in the

San Francisco, Oct. 7. The first rain
ot the season began to fall here shortly
after midnight and continued till about
11 o clock this morning. The Etcy is
still overcast and there are indications of
more rain this afternoon.
Telegraphic reports from different
parts of the state up to a late hour to
night, indicate that the ram was haaviest
in the northern part of the state. The
grape crop bas been injured slightly in a
few. places, but the second crop of grapes
have been benefited. In general the rain
was not heavy enough in middle Califor
nia to do any damage. At Fresno and
neighboring poiuts the first crop of rais
ins is nearly all in. A light rain began
falling at Los Angeles and other south
ern points late this evening.
The signal ofiice sent messages to
Fresno, LosAngeles and Sin Diego,
warning them of the approaching rain, so
that the raisin makers could get their
grapes under cover.
The wine makers and table grape pro
ducers will be the chief sutfereis fioui

and Sonoma valleys are cet all picked

are sure to result.

It was a touching story which tbe late

advice as to bow to deal with the terrible
human vice and misery of the place.
Lord Shaftesbury bad counseled him to
begin by establishing a ragged school,
and had at the same time furnished the
necessary funds. The school met with
immediate success, but it was impossible,
in spite of all tbe Vicar's efforts, to in -
duce tbe people to come to church, and
tbe joung clergyman finally resolved to
meet them by preaching in tbe open air.
He selected one of the worst courts, and
had the benches from the school taken
there lor his hearers to sit upon, but was
dismayed when he came upon the scene
to see the front row occupied by a num
ber of the most notorious roughs of the
neighborhood, who, he made no doubt,
had come to break up the services. To
his suprise, however, everything went olf
quietly, and when the services were over
he stepped up to the leader of the gang,
told him he had not expected to stc
him there, though he was very clad to
welcome him, aud asked him what had
brought him. The man said :
''Well, sir, you've been very good to
our litMe kids, so I said to my mates:
'Parson's goin' to preach in court on
Sunday night. It's a roughish place.
Let's go and see fair play.' That's what
brought us."
A DemocTittio ItiTormrr.
Inter Ocean. J
On the 10th of Mav last year, during
the debate on the Mills bill, a prominent
memoer oi tiie House, while speaking on
the subject, made the following modest
reference to himself: "I stand upon my
record at home and with my people, aud
if have ecer been the oppressor of labor, if
1 hate etcr ejected a man from his home, li
1 have ever endeavored in my lite, al
though I have been, I may say. a large
employer of labor, to put one laborer in
the place of another, or to force one man
in the place of another: if I have emolov-
ea a aetcclivc not a I'lukertun detec
- - .
tive merely, but any kind of :t detective
to come and protect my properly, or U
protect it against the men who are work
ing for me, or have worked for ine, I, sir,
will resign mv seat and leave this hall
the day it is proved."' This very beauit
ful testimonial to his own virtues reads
very prettily, and ought to be framed
and hung np by the side of a somnvhut
similar8tatement made by Z -tccheusot ol J,
"Behold, the half of my goods I give to
the poor, and if I have done wrong to
any man I restore unto him four fold.
To read the aoove extract from his
speech one would hurd'y suppose it was
uttered by the hearties?, grasping mono
polistthe Hon. W. L. Scott, olEri Pa.
who has just locked out all his coal
miners at Spring Valley, and ordered them
all evicted lrom the house which they
have been occupying, ht-cnu.-e they
would not accept his cut r.f 15 cents a
ton in their wages. While the other
mine owners and operators in the section
have compromised with their miners at n
reduction of 7 cents a ton, ami partly
off setting this reduction by other con
cessions, the Hon. W. L. Scott, who is
financially able to buy out every other
mine nwner in the district, show his
Demo-moncpelistic tendencies by refus
ing to compromise in any way, and will
only allow his meu to return to work,
even at the reduction offered, upon con
dition that they renounce their labor
unions and contracts as individuals, a
aemana wnicu none oi the otiier operat
ors probably thought ot making.
inis eume tariit-relorm ant'.-monopo-'
list, who had much to say iu his speech
about the trusts and monopolists which
are plundering the people, who has
been able to accumulate a lortuae esti-'
mated at $20,000,000 or upward within a
comparatively few years, who modestly
says of himself in his- autobiography iu
the Congressional directory, "Engaged in
1850 in coal aud shipping business, own

While Frank Lawler and the Demo
cratic papers notably the St. Louis J'c-
publie are endeavoring to hold the Re
publicans and the tun It responsible for
this strike in patticular and all others in
general, it is rather unkind for the boss
Democrat of the last "reform" adminis
tration and the London and Liverpool
strikers to act as they have done and thus
spoil all their ammunition. Many of the
coal miners of Northern Illinois have al
lowed themselves ot lute years to be de
luded by demagogues into voting, the
Democratic ticket, but is is to be hoped
that having before them a striking ex
ample of Democratic love for the work-
ingmon, their eyes will be opened to the
fact that they have been sieuuily voting
against their own in'erests.
A Spanish Legend.
A certain young Spanish tiiar, a skillful
painter, especially delighted in devising
new aspects ot blessedness and beauty for
the Virgin and in setting forth the devil in
the most repulsive nud extravagant ugli
ness. Satan bare this as best he could for
some time, but at last he Determined to
be revenged. He assumed the disguise
of a most lovely maiden, and the uuliuppy
friar, being of an amours disposition, fell
lo'o the trap. She srnilled sweetly on
her shaven wooer, but wou'd not surren
der her Leiuty at a less price than Ihe
rich reliqu-iriej and jewels of the treas
ury of the monastery. Iu an evil hour
the poor painter admitted her at mid
night within the convent walls, and she
took from ihe antique cabinet the pre
cious things she desired. Tnen, as Ihc-y
wound their w:iy through the moonlit
cloi.-iter, the sinlul friar clutching his
bootv with one arm unci Ins beauty with
the oilier, the demon la.Jy suddenly cried
out "Thieves! ' with chsboticul emrgy.
Up slatted all tl e snoring monks, and
rushed in disordi r lrom their cells, detect
ing the unlucky brother making off with
the plate. Him tbey tied safe to a piliar.
leaving him there till the next day should
determine his punishment white the breth
ren went back to their pillows or their
prayers; and then the cruel devil appear
ed in his real ehape to the poor pnin'er,
taunting and twitting him and making
unmerciful mockery of his amorous over
tures and bis prayers advising him cow
to appeal to the beauty he had so loved
to delineate In hi3 canvases! The peni
tent monk took the advice; and lo the
radiant mother of mercy descended in all
her heavenly loveliness, unbound his
cords, Dade him fasten t lie evil one in his
place to the column, and appear among
the monks the next morning at matins,
which be did, to the great surprise of the
brethren. He voted for his own condem
nation ; but when they went to the sacris
ty and found everything marvelously cor
rect in its place, and when they went to
the column they found the devil fast
bound, they forgave the erring brother,
and administered a tremendous flogging
to the devil. The monk became not only
"a wiser and a better man." but a better
artist, be is now able to paint the Virgin
more serenely beautiful, the arcb enemy
more appallingly ugly than ever.
