THE l'OLICE FORCE.
loma of Their labors Which Are Not
Apropos of cutting down the wages of po
licemen a few statistics of some of the servi
ces of the force may not be out of place.
During the year 1877 the police discovered
no less than 139 store doors carelessly left
unlocked, which weie guaided until the own
ers were notified and probable thievery
averted. This work has necessitated the
performance of extended pedestnanism to
all parts of the city, rain or shine, over and
above the customary beat-walking. In the
same period 38 fires were extinguished by
the officers without calling out or alarming
ttie fire department. Within the same time,
68 children were restored to their
homes by the police. The
year 1877 also witnessed the ropoiting
by the to-be-docked police of 680 lamps
found unlit. As, under last year's contract,
the sum of fifteen cents was deducted for
lamps so found, the force must be credited
with saving in cash to the city, the neat little
amount of $102, in this direction alone, to
say nothing of the immense value saved to
private property in the protection from
plundering of open stores, and from the de
vouring element of fire, while just think of
the assuaged flood of grief connected with
those 68 tiny wanderers. Now,
all these incalculable services are
"unhonored and unsung the
report of their accomplishment, never at
tracting public attention, as, excepting in a
very few isolated cases, they never find their
way into the columns of the press. The
work, however, has steadily, silently, effec
tively progressed, the memoranda at police
head-quarters, seldom pried into even by
curious eyes, bearing the only record of the
performance, which is none the less meri
torious because of the quietude attending it.
THE MIXNESOTA NORTHERN.
"What a Leading Director hays oi tlve Pros
pects of Building the Road the Coming
SeasonCertain to Trove a Paying Enter
Among the railroad enterprises in this
State that will be entered upon and vigor
ously prosecuted with the opening spring
may be mentioned the Minnesota Northern
which, commencing at Pelican Eapids, Otter
Tail county, runs southward 22 miles to Fer
gus Falls, and thence eastwaid to the Nor
thern Pacific, a distance of 50 miles, sti iking
the latter road two miles west of Wadona
fetation. From J. A. Bowman Esq., of De
troit, who is one of the directors in the
above mentioned road, and who reached this
city yesterday, the information is deiived
that the entire line has been surveyed,
mapped and platted and is now ready
for the grading, which will certainly be
commenced in the spring. This is the road
for which Otter Tail county last spring voted
the $150,000 bonds which are now in the gov
ernor's hands to be held -by him until the
completion of trie work, when they are to be
transferred to the company.
Mr. Bowman assures THE GLOBE represen
ative that the requisite means for the con
struction and operation of the road have
been secured and will be fforthcoming when
needed. So confident are the gentlemen at
the head of the enterprise who axe among
the leading business men and property hold
ers in that section, that no obstacles will
hinder its construction, that they have al
ready entered upon a new scheme which is
to extend the road from Fergus Falls to
some point on the St. Paul & Pacificmost
probably, Breckinridgefor which
purpose articles of incorporation
have already been entered into, and arrange
ments are being made with the view of en
tering upon and prosecuting the same to a
successful issue as speedily as possible.
The line of the Minnesota Northern takes
in the whole of the Pelican Valley which is
one of the very best wheat sections of the
State, or anywhere else, and is also one of
the most thickly populated regions of Otter
Tail county. The Pelican Branch is twelve
miles from the western terminus of the
county, and from Fergus eastward it runs
twelve miles from the southern boundry.
Mr. Bowman, through whose agency the
necessary means aie to be supplied, looks
upon the construction of the original line
this summer, as positively certain, and thinks
that when once put in operation, it will
prove one of the best paying lines of road
in any section of the State.
THE WAR OE ROADS.
The Commiiig Contest between the South
ern Minnesota and the Southwestern Rail-
roadsBroad Acres the PrizeStatement
of the Case.
The fight which is now going on in the
Legislature for the possession of the forfeit
ed portion of the land-grant of the Southern
Minnesota railroad, and which has hereto
fore been alluded to in THE GLOBE, has now
narrowed down to a contest between the
Southwestern Railway Company, of Minne
sota, and the Southern Minnesota Exten
sion Company, which is really the old com
pany under a new name. The land-granffin
question which, it is claimed, has been for
feited by the Southern Minnesota, amounts
to 175,000 acres, of which 36,000 are in Mar
tin, 2,000 each in Jackson and Faribault and
135,000 in Pipestone and other counties west
of the line of the Sioux City lailroad.
The contest has already waxed bit
ter and the Southwestern has already issued
and scattered broadcast a circular "to the
business men of the Upper Mississippi and
Minnesota valleys," in which they set forfh
that the Minnesota Southern are playing the
dog-in-the-manger policy with intent to con
tinue the present policy of rendering that
region tributary to La. Crosse, Milwaukee
and Chicago business interests, and shutting
out St. Paul and Minneapolis, whose interests
are identical with the southwest part of the
State. They further state that they have
already graded 8 miles and propose to put up
$15,000 in the State treasury to be forfeited
to the State in case 17 miles of road to Fair
mont are not built by October 15th 1878,
and 10 miles additional to Blue
Earth city by December 1st 1878
The circular concludes by invoking the aid
of the Senators and Representatives of the
section to which it is addressed, "to help to
build up cities in our own State, which
would result from giving them the land
grant, instead of compelling that section to
assist in building up Milwaukee and the
other places named.
The Southwestern have also issued and
circulated a memorial to the Legislature in
which the above facts are set forth with
somewhat greater particularity, with the
further claim that they are the legitimate
successors to the rights and franchises of
the Martin county railroad which had ac
quired certain rights by virtue of a contiact
with'the Southern Minnesota, under which
the grading referred to was done by Mr.
Eric Oleson, the contractor, who is one of
the parties interested in the Southwestern.
The memorial concludes by asking of the
Legislature the land-grant in question, as -m
matter of justice, in order that they may be
permitted to complete the work commenced
by the Martin county railroad.
The directors and leading spirits of the
Southwestern are H. W. Hawley, formerly
manager of the Southern Minnesota, and A.
C. Dunn, of Winnebago City G. W. Kings
ley and Johnson, of Blue Earth City and
J. A Aimstrong and Eric Olson, of Fairmont.
These are the gentlemen who were holding
a meeting at the Merchants the other eve
ning, when the Jackson and Wortbington
representatives seceded therefrom, as already
noted in THE GLOBE,
But despite these representations and vig
orous protests of the Southwestern and its'the
friends, the fact is apparent that it lacks the
confidence and support of the
people of the section through which
the proposed road is to be .built.
A meeting has already been h'lcl at
Worthington at which delegates weie sent
to this city in behalf of the Southern Minne
sota, and in Fairmont and other places, it is
represented, an equally strong feeling of dis
trust of the Southwestern and a correspond
ing confidence in the Southern Minnesota
prevails. Jackson has instructed its repre
sentative in the legislature, Mr. Fiddes, to
support the Southern Minnesota, and it is
pretty generally understood that the entire
delegation from the 38th district is unani
mous in favor of the old corporation. Such
is the situation as gleaned by THE GLOBE
leporter, but it is evident that a spirited
fight will ensue before many days, as the
representatives of both of the competing
companies are on the alert and determined
to make the most of the weapons, offensive
and defensive, at their command.
A Robert Street Grocery Audaciously Raid
at an Early Hour.
About half past eight o'clock last evening,
Mr. Ed. T. Witcher, who occupies the upper
floor of the two-story frame house on
Seventh street, opposite the mansion of
City Attorney Murray, was proceeding west
on Seventh street when he perceived a man
suspiciously looking at the south
end of the narrow alley separating his
residence from the next building. Mr.
Witcher entered the alley and the man
dodged lound the near corner of the house.
Quickening Wis pace to the end of the alley,
Mr. Witcher was startled by the sudden up
rising of three other men, and the whole
went helter-skelter over the fences, with the
pursuer after them. The fleeing quartette
separating, and the chase becoming warm,
Mr. Witcher found it impoesible to follow'
and returned to Seventh street, and informed
officers De Corsey and Brouseau of the cir
cumstances. An examination of the ground
revealed several plugs of tobacco strewn
around, the scatterings leading to the rear
door of No. 109 Robert street, which
had been burst open, evidently
bv an old ax found near the step, as it fitted
the indentations in the joint of the door.
No. 109 is connected with No. Ill, both
stores being occupied by Cariveau &
Priedam, dealers in groceries, flour,
feed, boots and shoes. In No. Ill
a light was brightly shining, and there was
no evidence of any disturbance of the stock,
but the upper drawer of the till, which jhad
been forced open, was lying empty on the
counter. Returning to the alley already
named, further search discovered two boxes
partly filled with plug tobacco, while a third
was found in a hole under the rear sill of
the building. The plunder was then re
moved to police headquarters.
There is little doubt but that the burglars
were disturbed in their nefarious fenerations,
as other goods of considelfcble value and
easy portability were left intact. As muoh
of the thieving of late has been directed to
tobacco and cigars, it is probable that an
organized gang is "working" the
city, whose identification is not
now positive to the authorities,
Although Mr. Whiteher thinks he could
spot one of the knaves of this affair if he
ever sees him again. A couple of hoodlums

N O PAULINE! N O MONEY
How Cupid Loosed the Purse Strings and
[New York Herald.]
In the quiet and romantic suburbs of Ho
boken and its elysian fields, in the early
spring time of 1873, August Mangles made
the acquaintance of Pauline Behrman, her
mother and her stepfather, William Toedle
berg. August was a robust young German
somewhere on the margin of a quarter of a
century old, impressionable and healthy in
purse, while Pauline was fair to look upon
and about sweet sixteen. The parents of the
girl, August says, diligently cultivated his
friendship and Pauline smiled upon him
graciously. The result was that he opened
his heart to Pauline and his purfae to her
parents. After they had got loans from him
at various times, amounting in the aggregate
to $1,395, and .there appeared no
prospect of any more, Pauline began to
weary of his attentions and her parents of
his acquaintance, and August suddenly real
ized the possibility of losing both Pauline
and his money. But if he could not get the
one he determined to have the other. He
first pursued Pauline in person to enforce
payment of the loan, but was defeated be
cause of the fair one's minority. He then
attacked the old man, her stepfather, first
in the police courts and then in the marine
court. The police court proceedings fell to
the ground because of the transactions be
tween the parties having taken place in New
Jersey, but those in the marine court still
survive. A motion was made in the
chambeis of that court, yesterday, be
fore Judge Sinnott, to have the step
father committed to the Ludlow street
jail, under the provisions of the Stilwell act.
The grounds on which this motion was made
are the allegations of August Mangles, the
plaintiff, that he was induced to part with
his money by false representations made to
him by the defendant, William Toedleberg.
These representations, in which Pauline and
her mother are represented to have concur
red, were that her father had formerly been
a rich sugar merchant in this city, and by
his will had left her both money and prop
erty that when she would attain her
eighteenth year she would receive $7,000 in
cash, and when she reached twenty-one
years would take possession of the real es
tate, which was very valuable and situated on
East Eighty-second street that just at that
time her guardian was absent in Europe,
making it difficult to get her usual
allowances that the loans made by th plain
tiff would be a great accommodation to the
family, and when her legacy should be re
ceived he would be paid back, with libeial
interest. Upon these representations, which
were false, and relying upon the prospect of
repayment, if not also on the" still moie
pleasurable hoes of embracing at the same
time Pauline and her fortune, he gave his
money only to find himself left in the lurch
in the end by the whole family, mangled in
heart and purse as well as in name. For
these wrongs he asks judicial retaliation
against the stepfather's person until he gets
back money which, with interest, he now
figures up to $2,034 17. The answer to these
charges and the opposition to the motion
to commit the defendant to jail is that the
representations were never made that
while it was true the loans had been made
they had not been made on any such repre
sentations that it was said that Pauline had
received remittances from an aunt in Ger
many and expected to one day become her
legatee, and that was all that was said by
any one to a legacy from any one: that the
plaintiff in making the loans did pot rely on
this or any other representation except
representation that the family was then
poor and needed the money asked for: that,
as defendant believed, a weightier induce
ment than any was the hope that plaintiff
might one day marry Pauline, and that she
did at one time look upon him with favora
ble and encouraging eyes, but having
on several occasions visited her while
overloaded with lager she was com
pelled to discard him. As counsel for the
defendant arrived at this point in the state
ment of his ease, from some recess in the
crowded court, in tones as shrill as those of
Poe's raven or John Brougham's parrot,
came the words, "Dat man he lies!*' The
judicial gavel quickly produced silence and
the argument proceeded, counsel for the
plaintiff claiming that his client had been
grossly deceived and imposed upon, while
counsel for defendant contended that his
client was being persecuted by the plaintiff.
Decision was reserved, the defendant being
permitted to continue in the custody of his
counsel until decision shall be rendered.
Brigham, Young's Harem.
[Utah Correspondenc New York Herald.]
The prophet arose early, dressed and
shaved every morning, and then assembled
his wives and children for prayer. After
singing and prayer they went to breakfast,
which was served in a large hall. Brigham
sat at the head of the table and Lucy Decker
at the foot and poured out the coffee. The
children had side tables, and their mothers
could eat with them if they wished. It was
to all appearances a happy family and as
well behaved, polite and mannerly as any in
the land. Whatever heartburnings there
were or jealousies the women kept them to
themselves, and not even the boldest dared
show her temper at the table before the
prophet, whom they all looked up to as a
god. Of late years Brigham did not eat
with his wives, his breakfast bein
simply a bowl of bread and milk.
On rising each lady put her room in
order, making up the bed and sweeping.
After breakfast the women walked out, sang,
played the piano or sewed. Several of them
embroidered beautifully, made colored cloth
and were very proud of their handiwork.
The prophet kept several carriages, and the
ladies could go shopping or driving whenever
they pleased. In the evening all went to the
theatre, whore Brigham's wives and children
had reserved seats. It is said that the prophet
was very liberal and gave his wives plenty of
pin money. They had a dancing-master, a
French teacher and instructor in music.
During his latter years Young endeavored to
give each of his favorite wives a cottage and
$1,000 per year in pin money. It is said he
offered a house and $1,000 per annum to any
good-looking young lady who would marry
him. In this world he had as good a time as
any fellow could well have, and now he has

THE DEAD POPE.
A Shetch of the Earlier Portion of His Life.
John Mary Mastai-Ferretti, was the son of
Count Jerome Mastai-Ferretti. Smigaglia, in
the duchy of Urbino, near Ancona, one of
the papal States. The deceased pope was
born at that place on the 13th of May, 1792.
The surname of the pope's family was
originally Mastai, the family dating back to
the thirteenth century, and it had always
been historical for eminent services to the
church and the State. For centuries it had
been noble, the head of the house bearing
the dignity of count. A union between the
last representative of the illustrious house
of Ferritti and one of their own blood en
abled the Counts Mastai to
BLEND THE TWO NAMES,
and the family became known as Mastai
An uncle of the late pope was Andrew
Mastai, bishop of Mantua, who, by his un
wavering devotion to Pius VII., including,
as it did, the suffering of a long imprison
ment in the fortress of Mantua, won for that
prelate an enviable place in the annals of the
The future Pope Pius IX., when a boy of
12 years of age, was put to school at the col
lege of Volterra, in Tuscany. The gentle
ness of his disposition and the gifts of his
mind and person soon won for him the
esteem of all his youthful associates, while
his progress in scholarship was so rapid that
his acquisitions at an early age challenged
the attention and excited the admiration of
the visiting professors.
At this college he passed some years, final
ly emerging from it possessed of a strikingly
handsome person, and a richly cultured
mind. Some of his relatives wished him to
adopt the vocation of the law. but his ardent
spirit longed for the career of arms. He vis
ited Rome, where, fortunate in all the graces
of mind, manners, person and fortune, he
soon became a reigning favorite in the most
exclusive and fashionable circles of Roman
society. He was enabled to gratify his wish
to commence life as a soldier, and upon the
reconstruction of the noble guard of Pius
VH. he was granted admission to that his
toric corps. But in his case the spiritual
power of the crucifix was to supercede the
prowess of the sword, even though it was
devoted to the banner of the cross. Soon
after entering the guard he was taken sick,
and the illness threatened to be severe and
even fatal. His mother, the Countess Mas
tai, appealed to the Virgin, night and day,
with all the tender supplication and fervent
faith that could lend power to the prayers of
an agonized mother to save the life of her
son. Though the times had baffled the skill
of his medical attendant,
THE MOTHER'S PBAYEB WAS HEABD.
and the young count soon recovered his
health, and while yet weak from the effects
of his sickness he determined that his future
life should be solely devoted to God and His
church and renouncing ail the tempting ad
vantages and delightful pleasures of his high
and wealthy position, he shunned forever the
gayeties of the world and proceeded to study
for holy orders in the priesthood. He re
ceived minor orders on the 5th of January,
1817, when 25 years of age sub-deacon's
orders on the 26th of December, 1818 dea
con's on the 6th of March, 1819, and was or
dained priest on Holy Saturday of the same
year, at the hands of Monsignor Caprano.
His first mass was celebrated on the 10th of
April, 1819. His first work as a priest was
passed in comparative obscurity at
Rome, though he was even then be
coming noted for his thorough devo
tion to the sick and the indigent.
He visited the hospitals, prisons and orphan
ages, and with his own hands nursed the sick
and administered to the necessities of the
distressed. His practical benevolence and
tender care of the sick have always been a
leading characteristic of the late pope, while
he had always been munificent, and, indeed,
lavish, in his private charities. The young
SENT BY PIUS VII TO CHILI,
as assistant to Monsignor Muzi, who was
vicar apostolic to that young government in
1823. They spent two years of fatigue and
danger in this journey, visiting the churches
of Chili, Peru and Colombia, and crossing
the continent in bullock cartsa ride which
took them two months. Returning to Rome
in 1825, Father Mastai was promoted to the
prelacy, and placed at the head of the great
hospital of St. Michael, founded two centu
ries ago by Innocent X., and comprising at
this time not only a hospital for the sick,
but a retreat for the aged, a refuge
for boys, a house for Magdalenes,
a home for virtuous gills, and
a school for arts and inustries. When Mon
signor Mastai assumed the presidency of this
vast and complicated institution it was bur
dened with debt and on the' verge of bank
ruptcy. He reorganized every department
of the hospital, repaired its dilapidated reve
nues, extended the range of its charities, and
in less than two years brought order out of
the confusion, by the sacrifice, however, of
his own patrimony.
Not long after the accession of Gregory
XVI, Mastai-Ferretti was made, by Leo XH,
Archbishop of Spoleto. This 'see he held
during the remainder of the reign of that
prelate, and during the brief term of his suc
cessor, Pius VII, Gregory XVI in 1832 trans
ferred him to the see of Imola in the Romag
na. and he devoted himself to the manifold
duties of this charge with unrelenting vigor
and the most careful attention. In 1833 he
was nunico nt Naples. While there the
place suffered terribly from a
scourage of cholera. The arch
bishop made the needs of the sick people
his own personal care, and such was his prac
tical interest in and painstaking attention to
them that his name is mentioned with bless
ings and gratitude to-day by people who
remember his devoted services.
His see of Imola received his most vigil
ant attention, and he was never weary in
well-doing for his people. His charities he
carried to such an extreme that he frequent
ly completely impoverished himself. On one
occasion having no money with him, he told
an applicant for assistance to take some of

While assiduously engaged in the duties of
his own charge, he was surprised by being
nominated a cardinal on the 23d of Decem

on the 14th of December, 1840. His purely
pastoral duties absorbed all of his time up
to the date of Pope Gregory XVTth's death,
when Cardinal Mastai-Ferretti was elected
to the papal throne as mentioned above.
SECOR ROBESON'S CORRUPTION.
Bis Former Partner said to have Become a
Physical and Mental Wreck.
[Washington Correspondent Boston Herald.]
A striking fact in the nature of circum
stantial evidence concerning the corruption
of the late Secretary Robeson has lately
come to light here. The most important
discovery made last year by the House com
mittee which investigated the navy depart
ment was that the Cattell Brothers of New
Jersey, who obtained for Mr. Robeson his
appointment as secretary of the navy, had
shared in the profits-of contracts to the
the amount of $300,000 or more, and that
these gentlemen, when called before the
committee and questioned, were unable to
give an explanation of what they had done
with a large part of this vast sum
of money. Their account books
simply showed that they had
received and converted it to their
own use, When Mr. Alexander G. Cattell,
the senior of the brothers and the former
Senator from New Jersey, was upon the
witness stand, he was compelled to divulge
the fact that he bad a partnership then ex
isting in various business enterprises with
Secretary Robeson that they were joint
owners of real estate, and that there were
unsettled accounts between them. He would
not admit that Mr. Robeson had received
any of the profits of the Government con
tracts, but the inference from his admission
of their business relations was too plain to
be ignored. He sank down in his chair un
der the searching questions of the members
of the committee, and seemed to be physic
ally prostrated by the admission
which he had made. After leaving
the committee room he was reported
to be sick, and tibe committee,
although anxious to obtain further testi
mony, were unable to compel his attendance
afterward. I am told that, from the hour
when his connection with Secretary Robeson
was divulged in the committee room, Mr.
Cattell has keen a physical and mental wreck,
and it is improbable that he will recover pos
session of his faculties.
Mr. Robeson remains here, and is repor
ted to be the head of a powerful lobby com
bination. He has a fine house, and can en
tertain lavishly, and the business of lobbying
will undoubtedly come very natural to him,
since his associations during the psst few
years have been so largely with the specula
tors and adventurers who infest the lobby
Tom Armstrong Draws Out.
I Albert Lea Enterprise.]
In our last issue we mentioned having
heard the name of ex-Gov. Armstrong men
tioned in connection with congrissional hon
ors from this district, we did not mean to
injure Mr. Armstrong in the least by men
tioning his name in this connection, for if he
had been a candidate we should have given
him our hearty support. Mr. Armstrong re
quests us to say that he "'is not a candidate
for any office whatever." This will place at
rest the numerous surmises and rumors
afloat concerning the present political aspira
tions of the Governor. The innumerable can
didates for his seat in the State Senate ill
hear this with joy.
Bears In the Barher Shops.
NEW YOBK, Feb. G.Ten-cent barbers are
excited over the success of the five-cent
shops. A committee has been appointed to
canvass the city as to the expediency of
forming a co-operative union, and, if neces
sary to beat their opponents, to put the price
as low as three cents, and then when they
have beaten out the five-cent shops, resume
the regular ten cents. It is estimated that
there are over two thousand five-cent shops
A White Elephant.
The inebriate asylum at Rochester seems
to be somewhat of a white elephant, and
various plans have been suggested for con
verting the unfinished building into practical
use. Why not turn it into a normal school?
If these institutions are of such great benefit
every city in the State should at least have
one of them.
A Solemn Question.
[From the Newburjport Herald.
If a man has nothing to do, and can't get
work, why not go fishing.
THE ST. PAUL GLOBE
DAILY AND WEEKLY.
A FIRST CLASS MORNING PAPER.
Having purchased a franchise In the Western
Associated Press, I have commenced the publication
of a DAILY MORNI KQ PAPEB I N ST. PAI^I..
The GLO BE will be a NEWSPAPFR, giving complete
ASSOCIATED PRE SS NEW S, coupled with bboral special
telegram'?, correspondence, kc. I short, the GLO BE
will furnish all the news and present an accurate and
complete daily map of the doings of this busy world.
An able, active, and vigorous corps of editors, re
porters, and correspondents has been secured and
TUB GLO BE will be a First-Class Journal in all its de
The GLOBE will be DEMOCRATIC. Not in the
offensive, "organ-grinding" sense, bound to blindly
support any man or measure bearing for the time the
label of Democracy, but in the broad, liberal mean
ing of the termthe Demociacy which signifies a
government by the people, conducted to advance the
interests of the whole people. I twill labor to make
the great crime odious whereby the will of the people
was thwarted and a man placed the Presidential
chair who was not elected. I twill endeavor to aid in
making this fraud so odious, that no party will dare
to attempt its repetition, and no man in the future be
willing to accept the fruits of such robbery.
Honest and economical governmentLocal, State,
and Nationalwill always be advocated.
THE PRESENT PARAMOUNT ISSUE
is whether the few shall devour the many. Whether
the business depression which now hangs like a pall
over the land, carrying woe and desolation every
where, shall become more fearful, or whether the
burden shall be lifted. On this, as upon all ques
tions, the GLO BE will be found battling with no un
certain sound upon the side of the people. I will
favor the DEMONETIZATION O SILVER, and the RE
PEAL O THE RESUMPTION ACT, as the least that can
be done to make amends for the secret crime by
which debts payable in com were changed to the
gold standard alone. I will favor any and all other
measures calculated to advance the business inter
ests of the country and tending to improve the con
dition of the masses. I twill be emphatically the
PAPER FOR BUSINESS MEN.
It will give great attention to the Markets and Com
mercial matter generally, and will furnish the news of
the world in such condensed and attractive form,
that the busiest men will be able to keep fully posted
upon current events.
The establishing of the GLO BE is a personal busi
ness enterprise. No fund haB been raised toy poli
ticians or others, and not a dollar is asked save in the
way of legitimate business. The heavy expenditure
incurred before the first copy was issued, proves that
it is on a permanent basis from the start. 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
who have so long regretted their inability to obtain a
hearmg for their principles, now have an opportunity
to attest their appreciation of this enterprise. Ee
pubheans who condemn the current sham Civil Ser
vice reform, and the utter betrajal of their party
North and South by the non-elected President can
testify their approval of the GLO BE by their sub
Democrats and Republicans, business men, and
every one who wishes all the news, racily served in
convenient form at a moderate price, should rally to
the support of the new paper.
Give it a trial and judge for yourselves.
