The exciting scenes which promise to ac-
company the impeachment of Judge*Sher-
man Page, of the Tenth Judicial District
were commenced last evening. The charges
which have be en preferred against him by
citizens of Mower Count y, and which were
communicat ed to the House of Representa-
tives, and by the House referred
to the judiciary committee for
hearing have before been published. The
nature of the charges have also, for so many
months been publicly proclaimed, as to pre-
clude the necessity for reference at this time.
The judiciary committee had its first meet-
ing for the hearing of evidence on the
charges last evening, the full committee be
ing present. A eig ht o'clock there
had gathered in the committee
room Judge Page and his counsel,
Messrs. Lonely & Stacy, Mr. Cloug h,
for the petitioners, the witnesses
who have be en summoned to testify and the
press representatives. "When the committee
was called to order by Mr Campbell, notice
was given that the committee had yet to de
termine the nature of their examinatio n, and
whether it would be public or
WITH CXOSJ5D DOOHS.
For the consideration of th is questi on all
save the committee and their clerk and Mr
S. N Hillman, who will act as stenographer
during the hearing, were excluded from the
But notwithstanding this action the GLOBE
is enabled to gi ve a full report of the pro-
ceedings before the committee last evening.
After a deliberation of about half an hour,
the committee expressed a willingness to ad
mit the couns el for the respective parties in
the controversy. Mr Lovely further asked
of the committee that Judge Page, the
accused, be admitted to the room, and
based his request on a precedent already es
tablished, and the equities in the case. Mr
Clou gh objected on the ground that the
presence of Judge Page might serve to in-
timidate witnesses. The absolute power
which the man had held in Mower county,
a nd the
SWAY OF TERROBIBM
which he had maintained was in the charges.
How potent had been that pow er
of terrorism he hoped to show dur
ing the examination, but if the committee
thought it admissable to admit Judge Page,
he shou ld insist that the petitioners might
also have present one of their number.
Pending a decision on the matter, the
counsel, by request, required, and the com
mitt ee proceeded to liberate. After a lapse
of about fifteen minutes, the committee ex
pressed their conclusion.
JUDGE PAGP WAS ADMITTED.
Mr. Clough expressed his readiness to pro
ceed with the case.
Judge Page was grant ed a heari ng and
spoke at considerable lengt h. repie
sent ed to the committee that the piocerdings
were a matter of surprise to him, had be en
suddenly broached and that he believed he
would be able to show their malicious char
acter. They threatened to involve him
in great personal expens e, however
an expen se which might bring
utter ruin to him personally
a nd that this burden of expense might be
lightened, he asked of the committee that a
sub-committee be sent into Mower county to
take the testimony of witnesse s. None had
been called on his part to appear here, but
he would have, he believed, about twenty
five witnesses in his behalf.
Inquiry was made by the committee as to
LENGTH OF THE EXAMINATION
of witnesses for the petitioners. Mr. Clough
stated that the heari ng of his witnesses
need not exceed two or three evenings,
and was almost entirely dependent upon the
length of the cross-examination to which
they were subjected. I may here be stated
that of the witnesses summoned on the part
of the petitioners there we re present last
evening W Stiles, Camero n, E
Stewart, I Ingmaundson, Lafayette French,
Levi Foss, K. I. Smith, "W. Woodward, C.
3 Davidson and S Mollison.
Mr. Lovely also addressed the committee,
a nd presented to them the great burden of
expense that it would impose upon the
accused, and asked that the examination
therefore be made as speedily as possible.
The counsel and accused after this hearing
retired, and the committee deliberated.
Upon the doors being opened Mr Campbell,
the chairman, stated it was the purpose of
TO PBOOEED WITH THE HEADING,
without delay, and whi le they wanted to gi ve
the accused a full and reasonable opportuni
ty to defend himself, they cou ld consent to
no delays, but would take evidence from day
day. His request for a sub-committee was
therefore refused. The rules which are to
govern the committee were further con
sidered, and a resolution pasbed admitting
to the room during the healing not to
ceed two persons.Judge Page, and some
one to be selected by the petitioners.
Counsel for Judge Page asked that an ad
journment be taken to enable him to deter
mine whether he should make a defense, or
let the examination take its own course.
The committee granted the request and
abo ut ten o'clock adjourned to meet at two
o'clock this afternoon when the intention of
Juege Page in the premises" will be expressed.
Arrested fov Robbery.
Sheriff Meckley of Stearns county, came
down to-day from Benson, having in charge
a man by the name of Albert Zalmow, who
was arrested by him at Fairfield, Swift
county, on the 30th .inst., on the charge of
forgery. Zalmo w, it seems, had represented
himself as being a resident of Stearns
county, and having in his possessi on a team
belonging to bi brother while in St Cloud
on the 19t inst., purchased a harness of
some parties there giving a note, signed by
one Wm. Glen z, a citizen of Painsville,
Stearns county, and secured the same by a
chattel mortgage on the team representing
himself to be Glenz, a man who is well
known and highly respected at home. The
prisoner will be taken to St Cloud to await
Cost of Criminal Trials.
Editor of THE GLOBE:
You are right in calling the attention of
the Retrenchment Committee to the eno r
mous expenses of criminal trials. I under
stand the Kate Noonan trial cost $30,000
(thirty thousand) that the trial of Hawks in
St. Paul some years ago cost $9,000 Van
Solen $6,000, Lautevschlaeg er more thous
an ds than he is worth, ands on. And our
last winter's legislation not satisfied with
fattening sheriffs and clerks at this rate, in
creased the sheriff's fe es 300 per cent, for
sales in foreclosure casesall by way of re
lief to tax-payers you know. Please point
out the items of these immense expenses and
Jet us correct them.

The Senate and House Committee in Se s
sion Yesterday and Proposed Draft of a
Bill to be Presented at the Next Meet
The Committees of the Senate and House
on immigration met yesterday afternoon in
one of the Committees rooms at the Capitol
together with a delegation from the Minne-
apolis Boa rd of Trade and the St Paul
Chamber of Commerce and Representatives
from several railroads, and one from the Odd
Fellow's colony association.
Senator Langdon presided, and a general
discussion was had as to the best means of
promoting immigration to the State.
Col. Hewitt, Mr Banning, Hon. E
Wilson and Mattson, of Minneapoli s,
Messrs. Delano and Power, the latter repre-
senting the Northern Pacific and others gave
their views at some length.
The general idea of the speakers, as well
as of the others attending the meeting,
seemed to be to have a board of immigra
tion consisting of members from different
parts of the State, who would be allowed a
clerk or immigration commissioner to do
the workthe board to serve without pay
N definite number was fixed upon to con
stitute the board in questio n.
The plan now practiced by the Northern
Pacific Railroad Company, of publishing a
paper in different language s, containing all
possible information relative to the county
its climate, resources, &c, and also of dis
tributing maps of the State, was adverted to
and very favorably commented uponsev
eral of the speakers regarding this as per
haps one of the best methods of dissemi
nating the desired knowledge among those
who would be likely to come here in search
test the sense of the meeting, a motion
was made by Senator Doran that an appro
priation of ten thousand dollars for carrying
into effect the plan above outlined be recom
mended and urged upon the Senate and
House. The motion was carried unani
carry out the above Ieolation a
special committee, consisting of Senat or Lie
nau and Representative Emmons and
Wickey was appointed to draft a bill in
accordance with the recommendations and
suggestions above give n, and to present the
same at the next general meeting of the two
committeesthe time for which is yet to be
fixedafter which the meeting adjourned.
Provisions of a Bill to Allow the City to
Expend #10,000 to Improve Country
The bill provides that the Common Coun-
cil of the City of St.' Paul is hereby empow-
ered by a three-fourths vote of all the mem-
bers elect at any time during the year 187 8
to issue the bonds of said city, or to appr o-
priate money either from the general fund
or the local improvement fund of said city,
to an amount not to exceed ten thousand
dollars, to be expended by the Boa rd of Pub-
lic "Works, under the direction of the Com-
mon Council outside of the city limits upon
such roads leading into the city of St Paul
as the Common Council may deem proper.
If the common council shall determine to
issue said bonds they shall bear interest at
the rate of seven per 'cent, per annum, and
shall be payablo at such times as the com
mon council may determine, at the fiscal
agency of the city of St Paul the city of
If the common council shall determi ne not
to issue said bonds, but to appropriate
said sum of ten thousand dollars or
less, "bu of either of the funds
before named, it then shall be the duty of
the Common Council to include in the next
general levy of taxes for city purposes, a
sufficient number of mills on the dollar of
the assessed value of all the real and per
sonal property in the city of St Paul, to
replace in the city treasury the sum advanced
a nd appropriated aforesaid.
The Legislature will inspe ct the Youiigers
at Stillwater this afternoon.
The Page impeachment proceedings are
conducted with closed doors, which smacks
somewhat of the old Star Chamber method
of doing things.
A man and woman, both insane, said to be
from Deadwood, Dakota, arrived here by
the Northern Pacific train last evening, and
will be sent to St Peter this morning.
The collections at the Custom House for
duties on imports for the month ending
amount to 1,014.91. The principal articles
imported are linen crash, cotton damascs,
leather and druggist's goods.
Out of Bondage.
The re was quite a large audience at th
Ope ra House last evening, which was more
than delighted with the melange of oddities,
melodies and carefully rendered chorus es
serv ed up with refreshing piquancy by the
Hyers combination. The entertainment was
essentially a very pleasing parlor olio, suffi-
ciently varied to satisfy every taste without
being offensive to any.. There was sufficient
of the extravagantly funny without en
croaching upon the vulgar enough of
the sentimental and pathetic without being
maudlin. The musical numbers throughout
were well rendered, and the concerted piec es
and chorus es showed the Hyers quartette to
be composed good, well balanced voices.
"Old Kentucky Home," Peter go Ring
Bell," "Good Bye Old Cab in Home,"
and ''Grandfather's Clock" were exception
ally well. sung. Near ly every number was
enthusiastically encored. I should have
been mentioned, that Miss Brown showed in
her piano solos that she is a musician of
more than ordinary ability. The perform
ance was as superior to a minstr el show as
gold is to brass. There will be an entire
change of programme this evening.
A Conference of Prominent Members of
the Party Last Cvening:.
Pursuant to notice, the meeting of the
Democratic members of the Legislature and
other leading Democrats from the city and
elsewhere took place in the ladies ordinary
at the Merchants Hotel last evening.
Major Bowler was called to the chair
and stated the object of the meeting which
was in brief to consider and report upon the
best plan of organizing the party and pro-
moting its efficiency.
Messrs. Lee, Dresbac h, Crooks, Henry,
Bowler, Campbell, Murray, James
Smith Jr., Dr. Miller of Wino
na, Senat or Mealey and others made
stirring addresses in which they took a hope
ful view of the future", and strong ly urged
the ncessity of organization. The party now
for the first time in many years has an org an
in which its principles were advocated daily,
by which means the ear of the peop le could
Messrs. Lee, Campbell, Mealy, Smith,
Murray and Bowler particularly urged the
necessity of giving THE GLOEB a hearty sup
port. I could and would do the party more
good than any other means that could be
adopted. I twas the du ty of every Democrat
in the State to circulate THE GLOBE and use
his personal efforts to that end. I this way
more good cou ld be accomplished than by
all the addresses, circulars, &c, that could
be issued. Every Democrat should consti
tute himself a committee of one, and par
sonally gi ve his time and labor to increase
Mr. Miller closed the discussion and spoke
in the highest terms of the GLOBE. The
Demociats in his district were hungry for it,
and he had do doubt its circulation there
would be large. There never was a
more opportune time for starting a
Democratic paper than when the
GLOBE was launched. Men cannot be
converted and made to confess it all at once.
They are converted insensibly, little by lit
tle, and the best means of conversi on is the
newspaper. THE GLOBE fills the bill. I
converts are to be made, they must have
readi ng matter, and that will here
after be supplied by a well conducted
and he hoped a well supported paper pub
lished at the State Capital, and devoted to
the interests of democracy. hoped every
Democrat in the State would consider it his
duty and personal obligation to aid in the
support and cireulation of the GLOBE.
Some discussion ensued as to the propriety
of issuing an address to the people, but after
consideration it was resolved to leave the
matter for future consideration.
O motion of Mr. Campbell, the Chair
man of the State Central Committee and the
Chairman of the Legislative Committee
we re requested to call a meeting of leading
Democrats of the State at some future time,
prior to the adjournment of the Legislature.
The caucus then adjourned.

MEMORIAL FROM CHAMBERLAIN.
Beeounts What Bailroad Work Has
Done and Asks the Legislature to Make
Him a Proposition for Settlement,
To the Honorable Legislature of the State of
Your memorialist respectfully represents
that in the year 1858 he contracted with
three of what were known and called the
Land Grant Railroad companies of the Ter-
ritory of Minnesota for the grading of cer-
tain portions of their respective roads.
That pursuant to and in perfect fulfillment
of said contracts, your petitioner completed
fifty miles of continuous grading upon the
Minnesota & Pacific railroad thirty-seven
and one-half miles on the Minnesota Valley,
now S t. JPaul & Sioux City, and twenty miles
on the Southern Minnesota railroad, all to
the acceptance of His Excellency, Hon.
Sibley, the Govern or of said Territory.
That he also constructed many bridg es
over streams crossing the line of said grad-
ing, and fully completed said road and
bridges ready for the superstructure that
most of sa id grading and bridgin g, except
in some few instances where the line of the
road has be en changed by the present com-
panies, are now in use by the present owners
of said road.
And your memoriali st further shows that
all that he ev er received for the labor and
materials so furnished by him was the bonds
of the State of Minnesota, known as Minne
sota State Railroad bondstha no part of
the principal of sa id bonds has ever been
That your memoriali st received said bonds
in good faith, and that at the time he re
ceived them they we re secured by a mortgage
which the State held upon the valuable land
grant of said companies, as well as upon the
road bed and bridges constructed by
your memorialist as aforesaid that
after the failure of said companies the State
of Minnesota foreclosed said mortgage and
took all of said property into its own hands
that your petitioner applied from time to
time to the executive and legislative author
ities of the State for relief whi le said prop
erty was still in its hands, and at the request
of the Legislature submitted various propo
sitions for adjustment of his claims, but
none we re so fortunate as to meet the ap
proval of the Legislature that in particular
he urged upon the Legislature the justice of
so disposi ng of the property in the hands of
the State as to provide a fund for the pay
ment of all just indebtedness incurred in
the grading of sa id railroads, but was as
sured that the State of Minnesota had no in
tention to repudiate any just claims, but that
the bonds were issued to secure the building
of sa id roads, aud as soon as this object was
ascomplish ed provision would be made for
the payment of her bonds, but that
to secure this object it would be
necessary to dispose of the prop
erty in the hands of the State as a gratuity
to capitalists who would undertake to com
plete them that your memoriali st believing
that there would remain after providing for
by the original companies in grading their
road beds^amply sufficient property to in
duce the completion of the roads, continu ed
respectfully to remonstrate against th is mode
of disposition, but his arguments not pre
vailing, the Legislature decid ed to make an
absolute gift of all said property to capital
ists who"would embark in said enterprise,
and your memorialist was urgently solicited
to contribute to this object by using bis in
fluence with capitalists to secure the organi
zati on of a company to build and complete
one of said lines of road, with the assurance
that all that the State desired was to secure
the roads which were the consideration for
the bonds, and that being accomplished
would make prompt provision for the-pay
Yo ur memorialist did accordingly exert his
influence and secur ed the organization of a
company which proceeded to build and equip
and put in operation the Minnesota and Ce
dar Valley railroad, now known as the Iowa
and Minnesota division of the Milwaukee &
St. Paul railroad, a road with which your
memoriali st had nev er had any previo us con
nection^ that upon the completion of said
railroad your memoriali st again applied to
the Legislature for relief, but was met by the
claim that the present companies having re
ceived as a gratuity the entire property which
had been set apart as a fund for meeting and
providing for the claims against the State
arising out of said bonds, we re in equity
bou nd for their payment to the extent at least
of said fund.
the payment of the indebtedness contractedi named Dominick MaGlinn, arrested for
That desiring to exhaust all just means of
securing indemnity, your memorialist caused
suits to be instituted again st sa id companies
for the purpose of enforci ng such equities,
if any there were, and spared no pains, effort
or expense to secure a favorable decision
that he secured the services of the ablest
counsel that the bar of the nation affords to
present the cause properly to the Supreme
Court of the United States that the case
was fully and exhaustively argued and care
fully considered, and resulted in a decision
that the present companies we re and are
liable becau se the State of Minnesota was
the principal debtor, and was itself liable for
That after his failure to hold the present
companies, he again made application to the
Legislature for relief, and was again request
to submit a proposition for adjustment,
which he accordingly did that although it
appears to your memorialist that he has ex
hausted every suggestion which the State
authorities have ever made, and he always
endeavored in every possible manner to meet
their wishes, he has not been so fortunate as
to secure a favorable consideration that be
lieving that it is the sincere desire of the
Legislature and the -people of Minnesota to
arrive at a just and equitable adjustment of
these matters, and that there is no disposi
ti on to deal unjustly by the public creditors.
Advancing age and the infirmitives attenda nt
thereon, admonish your memorialist that if
in his lifetime the large expendi
tures which i a the prime -of his years, al
most a generation ago, he was induced to
contribu te to the development of the great
resources of th is new, vigoro us and prosper
ous commonwealth, are to any exte nt reim
bursed, relief must come speedily, and your
memorialist is persuaded that the members
of your honorable bod y, coming fresh from
your constituents, are far better acquainted
with the views and wishes of the people than
he can be, and will be much more likely to
fiame a scheme of adjustment which, while
administering some measure of justice to
the public creditors, will so adjust the scale
of payment as to promote the honor and
dignity of the State, and bear but light ly up
on the tax payers.
Your memoriali st therefore respectfully
requests that such propositi on as may seem
to your wisdom to be just and satisfactory
to your constituen ts may be framed and sub
mitted to him for his acceptance, assuring
through you the people of the State that
such is his anxiety to leave to his heirs a
more substantial legacy than a contested
claim again st a sovereign State, no effort
shall be spared on his part to meet them in
a spirit not only of equity but of generous
liberality. S CHAMUKBLATN.

THE ST. PAUL GLOBE
DAII/Y AND WEEKLY.
A FIRST CLASS MORNING PAPER.
Having purchased a franchise in the Western
Associated Press, I ha\ commenced the publication
of a DAILY MOBSINO PAPEK I N ST. PAU L.
The GLOBE will be a NEWbPAPtn, giving complete
ASSOCIATED PnEsb Ni.ws, coupled with Ubeial special
telegrams, correspondence, &c. In short, the GLOBE
will furnish all the news aud present an accurate and
complete daily map of the doings of this busy world.
An able, active, tnd vigorous corps of editors, re
porters, and correspondents has beon secured and
HE GLOBE will be a Firut-Olasa Journal in all its de
The GLOBE will be DEMOCBATIC. Not In the
offensive, "organ-grinding" eense, bound to blindly
support any man or measure bearing for tho time the
label of Democracy, but tho broad, liberal n.ean
ing of the termthe Democracy ivhich signifies a
government by the people, conducted to advance the
interests of the -Rhole people. It will labor to make
the great crime odious whereby the will of the people
was thwarted and a niau placed In the Presidential
chair who v.as not elected. It -will endeavor to aid
making this fraud so odious, that no party wi dare
to attempt its repetition, and 110 man in the future bo
willing to accept the fruits of such roDbory.
Honest and economical governmentLocal, State,
and Nationalwill ^lv.aja be advocated.
THE PRESENT PARAMOUNT ISSUE
is whether the few ahjll devour the man Whether
the business depression -whu now hangs Hie a pali
o\er the land, carrying woe and desolation eveiy
where, shall become more fearful, or whether the
burden ehall be lifted. On this, as upon all ques
tions, the GLOBE will be found battling with no un
certain sound upon the side of the people. It will
a\ or the HEMONETIZATION OF SILVEB, and the RE
PEAL OF THE RESUMPTION ACT, ao the least that can
be done to make amends foi the secret crime by
which debts payable in com were changed to the
gold standard alone. It will a\ or any and E11 other
measures calculated to advance the business inter
ests of the country and ttndirg to improve the con
dition of the masses. It will be emphatically the
PAPER FOR BUSINESS MEN.
It will give great attention to the Markets aDd Com
mercial matter generally, and wdl furnish the Dews of
the world such condensed and attractive form,
that the busiest men will be able to keep ullj posted
upon current events.
The establishing of the GLOBL IS a personal busi
ness enterprise. No fund has been raised by poli
ticians or others, and not a dollar is asked save In the
way of legitimate business. Tho heavy expenditure
Incurred before the first copy was issued, proves that
It is on a permanent basis from the etart. The pub
lisher believing that there is a field here for such a
journal as he has briefly outlined, confidently appeals
to the public for support. Democrats of Minnesota
\*ho have so long regretted their inability to obtain a
hearing for their principles, now have an opportunity
to attest their appreciation of this enterprise. Ee
Tublicans who condenji the current sham Civil Ser
vice reform, and the utter betrayal of their party
North and South by the non-elected President can
testify their approval of the GLOBE by their sub
Democrats and Republicans, business men, and
every one who wishes all the news, raciJy bervedin
convenient form at a moderate price, should rady to
the faupport of the new paper.
Give it a trial and judge for yourselves.
