Summary of the Important Parts of the
Financial Statement and Liabilities of
A meeting of the board of county commis
sioners was held yesterday, the main object
being to consider the financial statement of
On motion the valuation of county lots
and buildings was fixed at $85,000. The
financial statement was received,
and a motion adopted refer
ring it to the printing committee
with instructions to let the printing to the
lowest bidder. Col. Walker, of the Lumber
man, and H. E. Newton, of the Minnesota
Farmer, were on hand to protest against
confining the bids to Blakely and Stevens,
publishers of daily papers. They believed
the whole matter to be an outrageous fraud
in excluding a dozen or more papers in the
county, with equally large circuJation, from
bidding. No action was taken with regard
to the matter. The important and interest
ing points in the financial statement,
as presented, will be found
in the following summary, which shows the
assets of the county to be $234,598.82 over

--Thirteen Volumes Already in Type, and
Sijrtyseven More Coming.
[Washington (D. 0.) Post.]
The confederate archives in possession of
the war department, are objects both of curi
osity and cupidity on the part of many peo
ple, and occasionally something bearing re
semblance to indignation breaks out in
different quarters that they are not open to
the inspection of every one, especially late
ly, since public attention has been attracted
to the subject by the spat in the House be
tween Reagan and Willets. The papers are
all in charge of E. Towasend, adjutant
general of the army, and from this office the
Post obtained the following information last
In reply to the question, "Why are those
archives kept from public inspection?" the
general said: "For the same and similar rea
sons that the Union war records are held as
official secrets. It is for the protection of
the government and the people."
"How are they protected by such a
"In this way: If persons were allowed to
come in and inspect the muster-rolls, one so
disponed could draw off the exact history of
a soldier, for instance, and personate him in
procuring a pension. He would make his
application, state his services, etc., and when
in the ordinary course of business the war
department received a letter from the pen
sion office asking for the man's record, of
course its reply would agree with his state
ment, and the government would be de
frauded. The opening of the union records
to the public would at once destroy the safe
guards and checks designed for the protec
tion of the government and the people."
"But it is so with the confederate records?"
"Yes, to a very great extent. In one way
and another they have cost the government
a large sum. Appropriations have been
made for their compilation and printing,
and whenever Congress wishes to publish
them, it can, of course, do so. Up to this
time, some thirteen volumes of five and six
hundred pages each, are ready. These in
clude the battle records up to about 1863.
And when they are published, maps of the
battle-fields and positions of the troops have
been prepared to accompany them. The
matter is so arranged that the historian will
find the history of each battle complete bv
"Who will get these books?"
'The purpose, as I understand it, is to
print the usual number for members of Con
gross, public libraries, and institutions of
learning, and besides this, a number for the
people, perhaps sufficient, when sold, to re
imburse the government for its outlay in the
purchase and preparation and printing."
"Not much concealment in that plan?"
"No, and concealment is not the purpose.
Why, for two days the late confederate post
master general was engaged in an examina
tion of the archives. A few days ago Col.
Mosby requested a copy of one of the papers
relating to a battle of J. E. B. Stuart's, and
it was promytly furnished him. The Hon.
Mr. Scales and Mr. Vance, of North Caro
lina, asked for copies of papers and they
were given, as well as to other members of
Congress, and any respectoble editor in the
country can get a copy of any paper he asks
for, provided it is not one in which the gov
ernment and the people are interested for its
"What sort of papers are those?"
"They belong to a class having a legal
containing evidence which
may be called for in the court of claims or
by the Southern claims' commission. There
are those who have claimed to be Union men
during the war, and, when asking for pay
ment from the government for damages sus
tained, the archives have revealed evidence
that they had once been compensated, or
that they were not Union men at all. It
stands to reason that hundreds of claim
agents and speculators would be glad to
come in and copy off these documents and
then again there are publishers who offer
large sums for the privilege of ransacking
il archives and making selections. N
wonder that complaints are heard that access
to the archives is denied but they come
from persons, as a rule, who have a direct
monetary interest in obtaining copies. For
all legitimate purposes, copies of papers can
be obtained of the class that will finally be

"Why, nearly all. In the end only a few
will be held back."
"What is being done with our own
"The battle records are being compiled
and arranged for printing, side by side with
those of the Confederacy, but they are more
abridged than the latter. The two will make,
when completed,perhaps a hundred volumes,
embracing a more perfect history of a war
than was ever written before, and furnish
ing for the historians of the republic un
bounded material. Infinite pain3 have been
taken by the compilers to have all names
and dates correct, and the work will be
pushed just as fast as Congress furnishes the
"Has much of the matter been printed?"
"The thirteen volumes referred to have
been set up and printed in the department,
so that the government printers can have
perfect copy. The archives, for the most
part have been stored in the "Winder build

have. This matter I take pleasure in ex

HEROIC MBS. KIDD.
Desperate Contest With A Burglar in
Which the Plucky Woman Comes Off
[New York San, March 14.]
Mr. George W. Kidd was unexpectedly de
tained at his alcoholic distillery in Washing
ton street on Tuesday evening, owing to a
change of workmen. Mrs. Kidd, who had
visited him at the distillery, returned to her
home at 16 East Forty-seventh street at 9:30
o'clock. While she had been absent the
guard-chain at the front door had been at
tached as usual, but when she entered she
left it unlocked, so that her husband could
let himself in with his night key. Thethe
house is one of a handsome brown-stone
row, which is guarded by a private watch
man. Mrs. Kid had allowed her maid to go
to a party, and there were in the house, be
sides herself, only two women, kitchen ser
Soon after her return home she went to
bed. At 9:45 o'clock she was sitting up in
bed reading. She heard a rustling of papers
in the bath-room, which adjoins her bed
room on the second floor. Without a
thought of fear she arose, and in a leisurely
manner unlocked her bed-room door and
drew back the bolt.
As she turned the knob the door was thurst
open, and a man Bprang in. "With his left
hand he got a savage grip on her shoulder,
and with his right he pressed the muzzle of
a cocked pistol against her temple. The
light shone full in his face, and Mrs. Kidd
says she will never forget him as long as she
lives. He was only a little taller than her
self. He wore a short, well-cut, chocolate
colored overcoat. His face was pale, and she
is certain he was an American. His light
mustache was handsomely trimmed, and his
hands were as white as a lady's.
The door as it swung open screened the
bed from view. He eagerly thrust his head
forward until he could see that there was no
one in the bed. Then he said to her: "Be
quiet, or I will kill you." His voice was
low, but she could not help noticing that the
tones were not those of a man used to rough
life. His manner, too, was as polite as was
possible under the circumstances. He opened
his eyes very wide, and tried to scare her by
the fierce expression of his face. He repeated
his threat again and again: "Be quiet or I
will kill you." Mrs. Kidd replied: "You
dare not kill me, because my maid is in the
Her right arm, unprotected except by her
night-dress, was nearly paralyzed by his grip,
but with her left she kept striking away the
pistol from her forehead. He pressed her
across the room until she got her back
against the bureau. Then she made a des
perate effort and pushed him back to the
door, all the time screaming at the top of
her voice. He then tried to trip her. In
the struggle he kept treading on her bare
feet, but he wore rubbers, so that they were
only bruised and not cut. Her right side
was bruised in the struggle.
Mrs. Kidd is a brunette, about 27 years of
age, of the medium size, strong, quick and
brave. Twice, she says, the burglar pushed
her across the room to the bureau, and twice
she pushed him back to the door. The sec
ond time she managed to shove him out
into the hall. Here her screams were heard
by the tw women servants. They had notO.
yet gone to bed, but they did not arrive on
the scene of conflict in time to
render aid. Mrs. Kidd continued to
scream, while she pushed her enemy half
way down the stairs. At this point he made
his last struggle. She had kept hold of the
barrel of the pistol during most of the strug
gle. Now she succeeded in getting hold of
it with her right hand also. He made a des
perate effort to get it away. Her only thought
was to prevent him from shooting her. In
the struggle her right arm was badly
sprained. Suddenly he let go of the pistol,
and, turning around, gave one leap from the
middle of the staha to the bottom, and went
out of the door like a shot, just as the two
servants came up from the kitchen.
He left the front door ajar. Mrs. Kidd
stood on the staircase a minute or two, and
then hurried down and fell fainting at the
bottom, with the pistol yet clenched in her
hands. One of the servants ran out en the
front stoop and screamed until some hack
men waiting in front of the Windsor Hotel
came running to the house.
No clew to the identity of the burglar has
yet been found. Last evening Mrs. Kidd
was in good health and spirits, but her side
is yet sore, and her right arm is in a sling.
Yesterday Mr. Kidd went to Police Captain
Williams, who had taken possession of the
pistol, and said he thought his wife had fair
ly won it, and ought to have it. The cap
tain promptly gave it up. It is a handsome,
nickle-plated, seven-barrelled revolver of
large calibre. Six chambers were loaded.
It was cocked during the entire struggle,
but the hammer was raised over the empty
chamber. Yesterday two new locks were
put on Mr. Kidd's door.

Weekly Review of the Wholesale Markets.
OFFICE OF THE GLOBE,
ST. PAUL, March 19.
The bad roads of the past week have affected
to some degree every branch of trade, but the
produce market perhaps felt -the depression
more than any other. Deliveries of grain of
all kinds have been unusually light, and hay for
two or three days was literally scarce. The
bright, sunny weather and drying winds have
considerably improved travel, and farmers have
been better able to get to market, Grain has
in consequence been freer in deliveries. The
bad state of the roads could not but have re
tarded collections, and "slow," with "very
slow," was the advisement from all quarters
early in the week. During the last few days
there has been some slight improvement.
The wheat market during the week has been
fomewhat unsteady, but always with an "up-
ward tendency. It is thought by some that it
will be kept where it ought to be, at $1.00, for
some time to come, providing no startling war
news from Europe sends it away up. It is to
day quoted at $1.02.
There is a fair supply of corn and a fair de

Oats are becoming very scarce, with a good,
steady demand. The sales during the week
have been but fair, owing to the scarcity of
oats in the market. There are at present.but a
few car loads in the city, and farmers are buy

unprecedented rush out to new breakings and
