The legislative session which closed yes
terday was no exception to the role in afford
ing a large grist of bills affecting this city
and county. Of bills of this character there
were presented this year twenty-one in all,
of which thirteen emanated in the Senate.
Nine of them had, up to 5 o'clock last even

county attorney, discharged from custody, the
evidence against them being entirely insuf
ficent for conviction. THE GLOBE, in its re
port of this case on the 5th inst., inadvertently
stated that Reilly and Fox had been "convicted
and jailed" for the offense charged. This was
an error. They were merely sent temporarily
to jail in default, for the time being, of bail
for appearance for trial, which was furnished

That Telephone Lecture.
Whether it was the name of a university
professor, or the announcement of "music
over the wires," which drew the large audience
to House of Hope church last evening, it little
matters. If the former was the attracting mag
net, never was audience doomed to greater dis
appointment, and if the latter, there must
have been anything but satisfaction. Pro
fessor L. W. Peck's lecture was a grand fail
ure, in every respect. He was not read in his
nbject he was at a loss for language to express
the few borrowed ideas he had jotted down,
and at times, his hesitating, bungling manner
of feeling his way in an unknown field, was
painful, in the extreme, to his audience, and. it
is doubtful if it would have caused any sur
prise, but a good deal of relief, if the lec
turer had collapsed almost at the outset.
Any poor student who is obliged to listen to
lectures(!) from Professor Lu W. Peek of the
State University, is entitled to the deepest
commisseration. The telephonic arrangements
and aparatus were not so complete as they
might have been, but still they were sufficiently
good to convey an idea of the principles of the
invention, had they been handled by a scien
tific man and experienced lecturer.
THE FORT 8NELLING BR1DGF.
A Memorial to Congress for Aid in the
The chamber of commerce, some time
ago, appointed a special committee on the
subject of the Fort Snelling bridge. The
committee consisted of J. W. McClung,
chairman, Jas. Smith, Jr., E. F. Drake, Wm.
Rhodes and Wm. Dawson. In accordance
therewith the following memorial has been
prepared: To the Hon. Senate and House of Represen
tatives of the United States
We are instructed by the chamber of com
merce of the city of Saint Paul, to bring to
your attention the necessity of constructing a
bridge at Fort Snelling as a matter of economy
to the general government.
We enclose official statements showing that in
time of profound peace it cost the government
about $300 per year, and during the late war
$1,500 per month, actual expenses to pay fer
riage for the want of a bridge at this point.
The government has therefore paid nearly
$100,000 for ferriage and is still paying ferriage,
with the liability to pay $100,000 more when
ever another war may occur.
The government is still in its infancy, having
barely passed its first centennial. If it lives
the usual age of a well regulated nation," it is
safe to say that it must still need its forts for
many more wars unless it is
an exception to the general rule
governing nations. We cannot expect, there
fore, that we can yet afford to beat our swords
into ploughshares and our spears into pruning
hooks and hold our forts as peace establish
ments, with no further necessity for repeating
the suicidal extravagance and folly of paying
$1,500 per month for the privilege of reaching
and using our own property.
We shall have other wars, and now in time of
peace we should be prepared for war by com
pleting Fort Snelling for it is not a complete
fort without the means of reaching it, any more
than it would be if it lacked a roof, or doors, or
windows, or any other condition necessary to
enable the United States to use it without ask
ing the privilege of an individual who owns its
The estimates of the cost of erecting an iron
bridge at Fort Snelling have varied from $120,-
000 to $160,000.
The city of St. Paul is interested in erecting
a free bridge at this point, and
would be willing to join the
government and share a reasonable
portion of the expense. On behalf of said city,
therefore, the chamber of commerce ask Con
gress to make an appropriation at least equal to
one-half the maximum estimate above stated for
the purpose of erecting a free bridge at Fort
Snelling, to be kept in repair by the city with
out expense to the government.
The United States own a large tract of land
at and near the fort which would be largely en
hanced in value by the erection of a bridge in
viting travel from 80,000 people living in St.
Paul and Minneapolis, and the hundreds of
thousands of strangers who visit the attractive
Minnehaha Falls in the immediate vicinity.
Enough of these lands might be sold after
this improvement to reimburse the government
fully for the cost of the bridge, and leave the
fort and its grounds ample for all uses of the
government and unimpaired in value, thus
exchanging what is now a useless andunproduc
tive possession for a valuable improvement,
saving in actual cost about $300 per year in
time of peace, and $18,000 per year in time of
Such an exchange of the unproductive land
for a productive improvement, would not only
pay the government in actual income every
month in the year, and thus stop the leaks,
where enough money has been lost within a few
years to build a bridge, but it would so en
hance the value of the lemaining land that its
sale would result in gains which would alone
go far towards paying for the bridge.
As time is important, we ask that this mat
ter be immediately considered on its merits,
and that such appropriation may be made as
to your honorable bodies may seem proper and
expedient. J. W. MCCLUNO,
Chairman Special Committee.

An Immigration Item.
A short item about the rapid growth and fine
climate of Minnesota was leisurely working its
way through Eastern papers and met the eye of
a man in Blair county, Pa. He at once made
up his mind to remove to our State, and we
saw him yesterday walk into Col. Hewitt's of
fice with a letter of introduction to that gen
tleman. The family consists of father, mother,
eight sons and two daughters, all the very type
and style of people we welcome to Minnesota.
We left the father mailing facts about our
State back to Pennsylvania, and showing quite
an interest in spreading the information to
others which he had fallen upon accidentally.
That man and his family are worth more to
Minnesota than the $5,000 that the State
has just voted for immigration.

of all technicalities, so "That He who Buns May Bead," thus makine
their Policies as negotiable as a United States Government Bond-they
