The Farmer's Beginning to Se the Impor-
tance of Diversifying their Industry-
Some Valuable Imformation on the Sub-
ject of Butter and Cheese Making in Min-
nesotaElection of Officers and the New
Organization In T"ull Blast.
A number of gentlemen inteiested in
dairy faiming assembl ed an the leading
room of the Metropolitan Hotel yesterday
morning for the purpose of organizing a
State dairymen's association. The Hon.
W S. King, called the meeting to order at 10
o'clock and stated the object of the meeting.
said that it was a reproach to our State
with all her advantages of rich pasture
land and agricultural products that she was
behind all other States in the manu
facture of butter and cheese.
Not only was she behind other
States, but the dairy interest of the State is
behind all other inteiests this State. This
shou ld be aicause of shame to our farmers
that we are held contempt as indicated by
the markets of the woil d. Our negligence
of +.hi matter is the cause of the gross libel
upon our State that the soil in grass or
water is unfit for dairy puiposes. With
proper reasonable caie as good butter and
cheese can be made in our State as an y
where. He, the speaker had eaten chease in
'72 made in this State that would compare
with any made in any part of the woild.
Our remote location from the cential
markets should be no drawback for our
facilities to reach those maikets were good,

miles away could buy feed of us and manu

ness and ignorance in our faimers that this
was so The butter which they ate this
morning in this very hotel showed that com

successfully with any State. This branch

The meeting opened by reading essays
the first presented being that of the presi-
dent, S. S. Gardiner, on Dairy Farming in
Minnesot a. I advocated more diveisified
objects in farming. Too much attention, he
contended, was giv en to wheat raising. I
the East experience has taught them that
dairy farming is more remunerative than
grain raising. Dai ry farming is neverlike

prize for butter at the Centennial, and Min-
nesota can make better butter than Iowa.
referred to the progress of dairy farming
in Cana da and in Wisconsin. The
essay called especial attention to the
fact that our butter will not bring six
cen ts to a pound, when it is just as easy
to make an article worth in the market 18
and 25c. I was a humiliation to know that

and is superior to the butter made here.
showed that the cost of keeping stock in
Minnesota was so much less than eastern
States as to more than cover the freig ht to
eastern centres. Mr Fowler asked Mr
Gardiner if he had in his essay made any
allowance for grain feed.

bran were best for milk. ~j*

Extra fe ed was beneficial and gave color.
|Mr. Gifford asked if it was advisable to
let a cow go dry at all.
Mr. Gardner, in reply to Mr Bass, said
that feed of course was of the utmost im
portance. I takes only 812-100 fts. of
milk, when fed on blue-joint grass, for one
pound of cheese, the lowest he knows of in
Mr. Hall did not think wild grasses were
as good as tame grasses. had produced

change of ten per cent, in favor or tame
Mr. Hall had never sold butter here but
always shipp ed to Rhode Island, and always
could compete with Eastern farms. His
average price was from 2 4 to 2 5 cents, clear
cash, per pound.
Mr. Fowler thought the discussion was
taking the right direction. I was well that
the peop le shou ld know that it wants some
thing more than sitting down and letti ng
the cow do all the work. For succes3 the
cows must be well fed and cared for.

count of the workings of his own dairy.
Mr. Hooper said the comparison between
the tame grasses of Ohio and the wi ld grass
of Minnesot a, from fifteen years experi
ence in both States, show that the native
grasses here have the advantage over the
tame grasses of Ohio. advocated mill
feed knowing well that the farmer who tries
it will get the cost back in the pail.
Mr. Sherry said that cutting hay in June
will ruin the meadows' growth of grass.
The next year will be abo ut half as much as
if cut in September.
Mr. Hooper said this is the effect for two
or three years but the fourth year it recov
ei s. His theory is that in four years anoth er

Mr. Prescott advocated feeding bran in
hot or cold weather. For a cent of bran he
got a cent of milk.
The question of grasses and hay was dis
cussed at considerable length by Mr Bas s.
Mr. Whittier advocated roots for feed.

The evening session of the Dairymen's
Association was as interesting as those he ld
in the morning and afternoon, and the essays
read evoked discussions upon every important
topic connected with dairy farming, in which
Messrs. Gardiner, Whittier, Bass, Fowler.
Sperry, Geering and othe rs took part. The
spirited manner in which the discussions
were carried on and the interest manifested
by all present augur well for the future suc
cess of the association. Perhaps the re nev er
was an association that commenced its exist
ence with a better prospect f success or with
a more apparent determination of its mem
bers to work for the accomplishment of its
purposes, and certainly not with objects of
more vital importan ce to the agricultural
$20,00 LIBEL SUIT.
That is What is Asked for from the Volks
The (jermau Printing Company, of St
Paul, publisher of the Volkszeitung, is in a
peclr of trouble, the tribulation being in the
torm of a libel suit instituted by Gertrude
Beyer and her husband. August Beyer.
The ground of the action hes in a certain
article, entitled "An Interesti ng Story," pub
ilehed in the Volkszeitmig on the 27th ult
O the face of it the "interesting story"
seems innocent enough, no names being
therein mentioned, and the parties being
indicated somewhat vaguely by location and
slight personal description but the writer
seemed to wish it understo od that some
man's wi fe had not been altogether as far
above suspicion as the spouse of Caesar is
popularly supposed to be. With a calmness
that is cooling and refreshing during these
sultry winter days, the fair plaintiff, joining
hands with her strong er vessel, has rushed
in to court, claiming the ''interesting story"
is a cap intending to fit htr, and prays that
her injured innocence be salved over by
damages to the tune of $10,000. The pa
pers in the suit were filed in the district court
yesterday, W.W. Erwin appearing as coun
sel for plaintiff.

the charges are preferred.
took the stand abo ut 9 o'clock and com-
menced a recital of the events, and others
bearing thereon, which have been "-brought
in question by the witness es for the prosecu-
tion. Some idea of the length and extent of
the story told by Judge Page may be gath-
ered from the statement that it occupi ed
nearly six hours in delivery, and was not
completed until a short time before

ing, when the over-worked committee
adjourned until this morning. I is impos
sible to give any explicit report.
THE MAJOK POBTION OE THE RECITAL
during the three hours before recess was tak-
at noon, and was confined to a considera-
tion of the testimony of Mr Lafayet te
French. Judge Page made a circumstantial
denial of what a large portion of the wit-
nesses had testified. The main facts on
which the charges are hung are, of course,
aimtted, but he denies that he is given
to angry declamationtha at any time he
addressed the grand jury and exhibited tem-
per asserts that his connection with the
whisky riots was only such as he believed his
duty as Judge, in the emergency required of
him, an eye-witness to the excitement which
prevailed at that time. S far as the libel
suit against Dowdson & Basfo rd is concerned
he asserts that he went to the publishers of
the Register and asked of them a denial
.which they refused, and the delay which oc
curred in bringi ng the case to trial was not
of his own volition but was owing to
HIS INABILITY TO SEOUBE A JUDGE
to preside in his place. The char ge of
Woodard that he entered judgment in his
own interest is denied, and the proceedings
said to be those of O E Wheeler, in which
judgment was entered in default of appear
ance by the defendan t. deni es that he
used the language with which he" is charged
to Mr Stimpson while he was in
custody, and asserts that all that was said to
him was in the best spirit, and with the best
intent. The testimony of ex-Senator I.
Smith, he explains in the statement that he
had very little acquaintance with him, and
when Mr Smith asked of him his opinion
in the cases growing out of the suits, and
which had found their way into the justice
court, he gave it as a private citiz en to a
private citizen and in no sense as an official
utterance. assured the committee fur
ther, that he harbors no animosity to the
gentlemen who have appeared before the

testimony given for the prosecution, and
which they do not regard as particularly

OUR FIRE DEPARTMENT.
The Record of the Past YearInteresting
Report of the Chief Engineer.
The reports of Chief Engineer Strong, of
the' superintendent of the fire-alarm tele
graph, aud of the common council commit
ee on the fire department were submitted
at the last meeting of the city's legislature.
From them it is gathered that during the
past year the losses by fire in the city aggr e
go te $95,036.96, on which insurance,
amounting to $84,325.40, was paid,
leaving an excess in loss over paid insurance
of 10,711.56. Over $50,000 of the above
loss was caus ed in two fires one occurring
on March 29 on Dayton avenue, wherein the
disaster was aggravated by the delay in ob
taining water, and the second happening on
May 7, when the Greenman house was con
sumed, the building being thoroughly on fire
from the rear before the alarm was turned in.
The total number of fires during the year
amounted to 65 of which 3 3 were in the
first district, and the number of alarms has
been 75 I answering these calls the ap
paratus has traveled about 547j^ miles, and
the engines have discharged 44,206 barrels
of water through 70,550 feet of hose, of
which 75,250 feet have been laid. The de
partment has on hand 7,000 fe et of 2%-inch
hose, of which onry 2,500 feet are reliable,
and eight sections have burst since Jan. 1
last. The chief recommends the
purchase of 1,000 fe et of "White
Anchor" hose. Five horses have been pur
chas ed during the year, and 2,000 feet of
new hose were put in service in April, the
latter at an expense of $1,998.89. Two
new fire alarm boxes have been added, re

Two weeks ago yesterday Collins,
lately a druggist in Alden, Freeborn county,
was arrested by Marshal McLaren for selling
liquor without a license. The defendant,
being then in ill health, was unable to re-
spond to the request for his presence in St
Paul, but gave his individual check for $100
as bail for his appearance.
The prosecution depended for its case
upon the evidence of A Smith, collector
of internal reven ue for the first Minnesota
district, residing at Rochester. Mr Smith
distinctly and positively swore the defende nt
had never paid his United States license,
and that his (the witness's office and clerks*
were so entirely well regulated
that he could not be mistaken
in his asseveration. I fact, so direct and
conclusive was Mr Smith 's testimony, that
the commissioner felt justified in proceeding
to sentence the luckless defendant.
"But," interposed the irrepressible Collins,
"can't I produce any evidence in defense?"
Leave being granted, the affidavit of the
postmaster at Alden was submitted,
setting forth the fact that in
April last, a postoffice order
fer $25 was transmitt ed by Collins to
Smith, whereupon the latter's countenance
elongated to the extent of several inches.
Nor was this the only trump the defenda nt
held in his hand,for he played out before the
court his United States licenses for 1875
1976 and 1877 the latter running to April
of the current year, and bearing the signa
ture of the singularly oblivious Smith.
I the face of this overwhelming evidence
Collins was immediately discharged, and his
pocket relined with his $100 bail check.
