striking illustration of the present
jury system. About two years ago,
a grocery was burglarized at Alma,
and a few peanuts and a small piece
of cheese stolen. John Halbert has
been put on trial before five juries for

getting tired of this form of jury
work, and incline to the view that the
system is a delusion and a snare, to
say the least.

there" were 600 policemen the attempt
failed. In the afternoon the police force was
augmented and a desperate fight waged
with the men. At some points 5,000 men

wild riot ensued, the police
aving us then clubs freely. All Kinds
of barricades were built on the tracks and
merchants closed their stores and put up
their iron shutters while the contest was

in running one car over the track but it
took all the afternoon and desperate
fighting to do it.

FIFTH DISTRICT FARMERS.
Three Days' Delegate Convention at
Moorhead.
A three days' delegate convention of
the farmers of the Fifth Congressional
district was held at Moorhead, March
8, 4 and 5, being called by the Clay
County Farmers Alliance, for the pur
pose of discussing railroad and ware
house laws, the agricultural college and
the tariff. The first day's proceed
ings were preliminary to the work of
the convention, with M. S. Converse of
Becker county in the chair, and Lyman
Loring of Clay county secretary. The
following committee on resolutions was
appointed:
Charles Canning, Norman H. G.
Stordock, Wilkin P. S. Olson, Nor
man A. M. Burdick, Clay E. M.
Jelem, Beoker T. H. Barnett, Grant,
and E. N. Bradish, Polk.
SECOND DAT.
The second day opened with a large
attendance and was devoted to discuss,
ing freights and grades, the proceed
ings being animated and interesting
throughout. Messrs. Baker, MurdocK
and Becker of the State railroad com
mission were present.
Mr. Loring stated that the principal
grievance of the farmer was the high
freight rate charges by the railroads to
transport the great staple product of
that region of country to the markets
at Duluth and Minneapolis. The farm
ers were not disposed to regard the
railroads as their enemies, but rather,
as their partners, and the oomplaint
was that the railroads got too large a
share of the profits. The people had
the right, under the decisions of the
Supreme court and rules of the rail
road commissioners to make laws to
regulate freight charges.
Gen. Baker, speaking for the State
railroad commissioners, said they
were in full harmony with the produc
ing classes, and while doing justice to
all, should give the most liberal inter
pretation tolaws favoring their interest.
The operation of the railroad law was
even better than had been anticipated
and it was believed to be the best rail
road law possessed by any state, and a
freat point bad been gained
securing an open market
and free shipment. All the roads had
complied with section 15 (requiring
R. R's. to allow warehouses built) ex
cept the Milwaukee and they must do
so or suit would follow. Section 16,
requiringjroads to furnish cars, all faith
fully complied with. Under section
20, on the Manitoba road, the Com
missioner has found a number of dis
criminations, from half a cent to two
cents against towns on that line. Mr.
Hill had promised that all such dis
criminations should be swept away,
and he was now East conferring
with the directors on that mat
ter. The Manitoba is not only
paying all fixed operating expenses,
but also 6 or 7 per cent on bonds
and 6 or 7 per cent, on stock it made
in 1884 a surplus of $600,000 and in
1886 a surplus of $1,050,000. The
Commissioners deem the rates of this
road unreasonable and think they have
the power to say so. The- Commis-
sioners believed the time had come
when passenger rates should be re
duced to three cents a mile. The
same as in Illinois, Iowa ano
Wisconsin, and Minnesota has more
miles of road than Wisconsin.
Messrs. Loring, Torgerson, Mattson,
Canning and Donaldson were appointed
a committee to submit questions to the
Commissioners to be answered in writ
ing.
THIRD DAT.
The morning session was devoted to
the consideration and discussion of the
series of resolutions, which after the
debate were adopted as follows:
Resolved, That the farmers of the
Fifth congressional district, after due
deliberation and investigation, find that
the railroad rates are unjust, excessive and
extortionate that all our petitions for
relief have been met with fair promises,
only to be broken, as experience proves
therefore we requost a reduction of 83
per cent, and if not granted in thirty
days we demand our honorable board of
railroad and warehouse commissioners to
fix rates.
Resolved, That we recommend the
farmers of the Northwest to build fiat
warehouses, and ship their wheat only to
those houses that comply with the
warehouse laws at terminal points.
Resolved, That we instruct our represen
tatives in congress and senators to support
a bill reported by the senate committee on
inter-state commerce for the regulation and
control of railroads by the federal govern
ment.
Resolved, That we recognize in the Farm
ers' Alliance of Minnesota an active, ener
getic and powerful organization for the
overthrow of monopoly, and we thank them
for the full, clear and fearless declaration
of principles adopted at the annual conven
tion, and we hereby recommend the alli
ance to the farmers of the state for their
earnest financial and personal support.
The concluding session of the con
vention in the afternoon was occupied
with addresses by O. C. Gregg of
Lyons county upon Institute Work, C.
L. Smith of Hennepin eounty upon
Better Farming, and by Mr. Hodges
the state lecturer of the Farmers
Alliance.
Storm Seared Miners.
The Aspen Times relates that during
the great storm of last week two miners
started to ascend one of the neighbor
ing mountains. They made the trip
on Norwegian snowshoes, on which
they worked their way up a narrow
gulch leading to their property. As
they journeyed on one of them got to
be some 200 yards in advance of the
other, and it was while this distance
separated them that the leader, by an
unhappy step, overturned a top-heavy
mass of snow and started a dreadfu
slide. He seized hold of a convenient
tree and called to his companion to
"lookout." The tree was small and
bent over under the weight of moving
snow. He let go and started with the
slide. The long shoes by this time
were firmly anchored in the moving
mass, and he was hurried along with
no power to stop himself by seizing the
trees which he passed. Fortunately he
was on the tail end of the avalanche,
and thus rode it in safety, with nothing
coming behind to cover him up. When
he found that he had thus to be an un
willing passenger upon the terrible
train he looked ahead to see what had
become of his partner. The latter, up
on seeing that there was no escape on
either side, turned heels to the roaring
mass, and started on a life-and-death
run right down the gulch. Then fol
lowed a wild and thrilling chase. The
man who was anchored on top of the
snow yelled at the man in front to run,
while he who was pursued strained
every muscle to keep out of the jaws of
the death that was close at his heels.
The race was kept up for more than a
mile, and during the entire distance the
fellow who was on top kept yelling,
"Run, yourun," and the hair of the
fellow who was running held his hat
poised four inches from his head while
he headod for the valley. Often the
rolling snow struck the heels of his
shoes, but it did not quite get him.
More quickly that it takes to tell it the
hunted man dashed out into the valley,
and what he thought was safety. The
valley, however, was more dangerous
than the mountain, as an unseen gulch
crossed it, into which the hunted man
fell. Providence, though was kind to
him, for the slide had spent its force,
and the snow piled up on the bank
over which he had fallen.
When the two were able to look
around, one was lying at the bottom of
the gulch, while the other was seated
upon the crest of the snow bank that
looked over its edge.
A Community of Lunatic*.
The celebrated Belgian colony of the
insane at Gheel has nothing in its ex
ternal appearance suggestive of the
ordinary lunatic asylum its inhabi
tants give no superficial indications
that a large proportion of them are
madman. If one would conceive what
Gheel is, he must imagine a tow of
five or six thousand souls, in no way
different from other towns of like im
portance, surrounded by a number of
hamlets containing altogether, perhaps,
about as many more inhabitants.
These people have been, from a very
remote period, in the h^bit of taking
insane persons to board in their houses.
The lunatics live in constant contact
with the family of their host. They
share in their labors and their pleas
ures if so inclined and their means per
mit it. They come and go, in the en
joyment of an almost absolute liberty.
It has, however, been found necessary
for the good of the patients and of the
settled population to organize admin
istrative and medical services, in
order to prevent dangerous and im
proper persons from being sent to the
colony, and for the care of the mental
and physical affections of the patients,
and for securing to them proper ac
comodation and treatment and an in
firmary has been established for those
who need medical care. But the ad
ministration makes very little show.
The whole of Gheel district is an asy
lum and the streets and the surround
ing country are the promenade of the

Antiquity of Whiskey.
There is pretty good evidence for
supposing that no less a person than
Osiris, the great god of Egypt, was
the first distiller of whiskey on record
for the Egyptians had, from time al
most immemorial, adistillation'or brew
age from barley, called by the Greeks
barley-wine, not inferior, they say, in
flavor, and superior in strength to wine.
Allusion is made to this liquor in sev
eral passages of ancient writers. The
poor people of Egypt drank it instead
of wine, and were wont to intoxicate
themselves with it, just as our poorer
people do with whisKey. It seems also
to have been no stronger to the He
brews, for reference is certainly made
to it in the Old Testament, under the
name of strong drink," stronger than
wine, and resorted to by determined
drinkers for the sake of inebriation.
Among the Celtae in Spain and
France is seems to have been common
as a substitute for wine. Polybius
speaks of a certain Celtic king of part
of Iberia or Spain who affected great
Court pomp, and had in the middle of
his hall golden and silver bowls foil of
this barley wine, of which his guests
and courtiers sipped or quaffed at their
pleasure, a custom which, it is said,
for many a century prevailed among
his Celtic descendents, the reguli chiefs
of our Scottish Highlands.

Steers on the Rampage.
An accident containing some fanny
features occurred in the big tunnel at
Summit, on the Northwestern road.
Sunday night. As a train loaded with
Montana cattle entered the tunnel
from the north, a door to one of the
cars accidentally slid back. Several
fiery steers immediately jumped out,
and with elevated tails dashed ahead
of the slowly moving locomotive and
soon were hidden in the dense dark
ness of the tunnel. One steer ran back
and took to the woods. The train was
quickly stopped and the train men de
sertecftheir post in a frantic endeavor
to corral the fractious fugitive. Think
ing the animals in the tunnel were suf
ficiently well caged, they all started
for the steer in the bushes. After a
lively chase they finally lassoed this
creature and tethered him to a tree.
They then returned to the tunnel, and,
procuring a hand car, sallied in after
the other steers. When they had pro
ceeded in some distance they were
charged upon by the bellowing crea
tures, who mistook a colored
lantern on the car for the ha
ted red rag. The men clambered into
the niches of the walls, and for a time
played the statue act, while the semi
wild animals gored the innocent lan
tern. The steers held the fort for an
hour or so, but the men, urged to des
peration through fear that another
train might come bowling into the tun
nel from the opposite direction at any
moment, finally descended from their
perches, and, after a long struggle in
the darkness, succeeded in capturing
the citadel. The whole train force
worked valiantly for about three hours,
and at the end of that time were able
to move the train southward and clear
the road. All the steers were recovered,
the men being so thoughtful even as
to go back into the woods and bring
out the beast which had been tethered
there.
A. large number of dudes collected at an
exposed corner last Sabbath, where the
wind was high, and caught colds Each
little darling was speedily cured by Dr.
Ball's Cough Syrup.
The common people are becoming
more and more refined year after year.
