FOET SNELLEN* BRIDGE.
A CLOUD OF WITNESSES IN ITS FAVOIl.

I Strong Call From the Farmers in Dako
ta, Hennepin, Scott, Carver and Sibley
I Counties-What a Six-Hundred-Acre.
Farmer SaysIt Will Increase \Yhc:it
Receipts Twenty-Five Per Cent.
Messrs. Schurmeior & Co., the owners
and operators of the flour mill on Third
1 street, next to the elevator, give good rea
eons, if there wore none others, why the
Fort Snelling bridge should bo built. Wa
I hope to see, before many years, si number of
flour mills along our bluff, and more elova
tors also, for then Saint Paul will be a great
wheat market. This growing interest bids
fair to become, within a few years, one of
the greatest importance. All highways to
i success 3hould be opened. Messrs. Schm
meier & Co. say:
The building of a free bridge at Fort Snelling
would tap one of the most extensive, rich and
populous agricultural regions of the Stat'.-.
i But now the farmers living there, are actually
shut out by the difficultylet alone the toll
or crossing the river at Fort Buelling. The
completion of the proposed bridge will brinjf
them with their wheat and other produce to sell
in Bb. Paul, and to n.ake their purchases. Thk
city, in cur opinion, cannot make a better
i business investment than to build this bridge.
It will, we have no doubt, make a wagon travel
and an increase of business to Saint Paul no
large, that our business men will be astonished,
and will wonder why they have so long neglec
ted to secure thi3 great and necessary
improvement. That it will soon add thousands
to our population, and give Jnew life to retail
bueinesB, is a very reasonable prediction.
Even now some of the farmers in the exten
sive country that will be tapped by the Fort
Bnelling bridge, coming from Scott county
within a few miles from Jordan, bring, when
they do come, their wheat to one mill, and
many more would come if we had this bridge,
and the roads which would soon come to it.
It would pay to build the bridge if it v^ere
only to get for our mills and elevators the
amount-of wheat that would be brought across
it by wagons, but which now goes to Minne
apolis, owing to high bluffs, Bteep roads, ami
bad feny crowing, which now make it about
impossible to haul a full loaded wagon up the
hills on either aide.
Our conversations and business with the
farmers living in the counties that will be
tapped by this bridge, enable us to say, that
they are anxious to establish business relations
vrith Bt. Paul, and will do BO, if we will only
give them a fair chance.
We have, of course, a business interest in the
:ompletion, as soon as possible, of the pro
posed bridge. It ia of tho moat vital import
ance to the milling Interests of this city to
have this bridge for wagons to bring iu wheat
to tho mills, whioh is much preferred to re
ceiving wheat in any other ay, for then we
get it unmixed and in the bost possible con
dition. Eut not only the wheat market and
milling interests.but all other kinds of.business
will gain more or less by building the Fort
Snelling bridge and by encouraging tho open
ing of wagon roads from all directions infftthe
city. SCHUBMOSU & Co., Capitol Mill.
fUrong Letter From the People of Five
D. W. Ingersoll, Esq.:
DEMI BrrnWe understand that you are a
member of the chamber of commerce of St.
Paul and in favor of building abridge at Fort
Bnelling, and that some of the other members
are opposed to that improvement on the
ground that it would not increase the business
of your city enough to pay for it.
We write to tell you that suoh a bridge
would bring to your oity a large trade from the
Minnesota valley, on both sides of the river,
whioh is now kept out of St. Paul because
there is no bridge at Fort Snelling. The peo
ple up this valley who would go to your city
in wagons do not do BO any more than they
can help, because there is no good crossing.
We have to pay fifty cents to cross and return
on tho ferry. Besides, we cannot take a full
load up tho dangerouB hill thero, and some
times cannot cross the ferry at all on account
of the high water so we generally prefer to go
to Minneapolis, when we would otherwise go to
St. Paul on a free bridge at Fort Snelling if
there was such abridge there. We would like
to have an equal chance to deal in both
cities, which we have not now, and it is to the
interest of your city to offer ns that equal
chance, unless you do not want to have the
Minnesota valley business.
If you would explain this to the ohamber of
commerce, so that it would be understood, we
think that all the members who are in favor of
the interests of St. Paul, will be very glad to
build the long talked of Fort Snelling bridge,
and many of our old settlers, who used to deal
in St. Paul altogether, will be glad to do so
again. lours with respect,

What a Large Farmer Sat/8'
The following letter addressed to one of
our prominent citizens, is from the largest
farmer in Edon Prairie,^ Hennepin county.
He has 600 acres of land under cultivation,
and BO much desires to trade with St. Paul
that he often comes to this city by way of
EDEN PRAIRIE-I perceive through the papers
that there is a movement on foot to build a
bridge at Fort Snelling. I, for one, think it 1B
time that St. Paul was waking up to her own
interests. I reside in Hennepin county, and
make St. Paul my principal market, and know
for a certainty that there is a large oortion of
the trade of this county cut off by not having
a good road at all seasons of the year, and a
bridge to cross the Mississippi river. A free
bridge would bring a large farmers' trade from
the south part of this county, and from Scott
P. F. RITCHIE.
Estimated Increase of JVheat Receipts.
To the Fort Snelling Bridge Committee:
GENTLEMEN:In reply to your inquiries as
to the importance of a free bridge at Fort
Snelling to increase the business of this city, I
would Bay that 1 believe the building of a free
bridge across the Mississippi river at Fort
Snelling would, at the lowest calculation, add
25 per cent, to the amount of wheat that would
come to St. Paul for a market, and as a natur
al consequence would lead to the purchase of
goods for their families bv farmers coming to
this oity by way of the bridge.
Previous to this winter we have had quite
large receipts of wheat from the opposite side
of the Minnesota and Mississippi rivers, after
the ice became safe, but during the past win
ter we have seen but very little from that sec
tion, as the farmers could not come with teams
on the ice, and, much of the time, could not
cross at Fort Snelling ferry, and when they can
cross on the ferry, are practically prevented
doing so, for besides the objection they have in
paying ferriage, they are unable to haul a full
load up the Bteep hill on this side.
I havo frequently conversed with farmers
that have come to the elevator from the coun
try west of Fort Snelling, and up the Minnesota
river, and they all say that if they could get
hnrn with a fair load, they would come with all
To bring business here, the proposed bridge
should be free. The trade will go where it can
go the easiest, and is the best served. Before
the St. Paul elevator was built, the
wheat, raised almost at our doors, was
obliged-to seek some other market. Now with
the elevator to handle and store any amount,
auda free bridge across the river at WabaBhaw
street, we are getting wheat by wagon from all
sections now accessible to this city, and from
distances twenty and twenty-five miles away,
the receipts for some days last fall aggregating
from 4,000 to 5,000 bushels per day from wag
ons. Very respectfully,
W. S. TXMEBttAN,..-.,..

,!The Importance and Worth of a Noble
The Kev. Dr. Dana, at the morning ser
vice yesterday, delivered a very interesting
discourse, of which the following is an ab
stract: Acts 28-1: 'I have lived in all good conscience
before God until this day."
What grander confession after all. can a man
make than this? What a noble bearing it here
gives the apostle, as he stands a prisoner at the
bar, planting himself on the moral integrity
of his life, and drawing from that inner his
tory which the world could not read, affirms
his consciousness of a noble intent. This was
a signal hour in St. James' career, and if he
found it a refuge and comfort that his life had
been guiless, pervaded by a lofty purpose, it
surely is worth our while to look into the mat
ter and see if we are not missing that which
may be more to ua than all else,
viz., a noble consciousness. In times like this
what lesson so needful for us to learn, as
how to stand in tho full honors of reotitude
before our own consciences. If one thing more
than another impresses us in the character of
the early disciples, it is their bold declaration
of possessing a conscience void of offense, and
that therefore it mattered little to them that
they were judged by man's judgment, since
they knew they were approved by God. There
is no resisting this appeal they make to their
own conscious integrity, and the sense they
had of being right and true. Careful as we
train ourselves to be about our conduct, studi
ous as we are to seem right before men, we
lose eight of that which must go be
fore all appearance, that is actual
being. In these days it is not more attention
to the externalities of our life that is called for,
but for more regard for our inward bearing
for what wc are in our own consciences, and in
tho sight of God. Before tho fear of this
world, we need to place the reproaches of our
own hearts, for self-condemnation is harder to
bear than any criticism of those unfriendly.
We can do without the friendship of men, but
we cannot live and be happy without an approv
ing conscience. Pascal, in one of his thoughts,
puts it thus, "We have suoh a grand idea o.f
the soul of man, that we cannot endure to be
despised by it, or oven not to be esteemed by it.
It's the life we live in ourselves, our secret and
real character that constitutes our happiness
and personal influence. So the apostle, looking
back upon his past, was able to report, that be
had ever acted from tho highest motives, and
it \vaa therefore a small matter to him to be
called into judgment by kings or courts, when
acquitted before that inner tribunal where first
rre are obliged to be judged with relentless
1. Consider first the nature and scope of
consciousness wherein it differs from memory
and differentiates man from the brute. Think
y,hat it supplies to poet and painter, and how
it exalts the bearing of every man possessed of
a noble purpose.
2. As a source of happiness what is com
parable to a fine and lofty consciousness? This
distinguishes the magnanimous from the mean
man, the polemic animated by zeal for general
notoriety and success and the devoted chris
tian, whose arguments are loving deeds, and
whose persuasive is his guileless, helpful life.
3. How this noble consciousness profb-'-'Ts
patience and courage. It greatens every hu
man life, and gives us an errand that is divine
in its effects on men.
FourthAnd this consciousness Christianity
procures er ns. It commends every one of its
doctrines and duties to us, showing us that in
the living and believing to which it summons
ns is found a really puro and exalted spirit. It
is Christianity in the form of a personal expe
rience which builds over the ruins of sin fair
structures. It fills the mind -with ideals and
longings, that supply the staple of noble
achievement. When our gaze is onward, the
report that comes to the Christian-hearted of
us is one that irradiates the face, and betokens
the consolations which feed the soul's peace
and keep alive the fires of its holy zeal. Happy
my friends are you, if able to affirm with the
courageous and lofty-souled apostle, "We have
lived in all good conscience before God." 5

Story of a Daughter's Love.
There may be victims of absolutely in
curable bad appetite. Such victims are rare
ly fortune if God gives them a friend, and
especially a child, who can help them in their
hour of temptation. A writer in the Hart
ford Times describes an interesting case of
a Portland sea-captain who never drank on
shipboard, but was unable to resist the im
pulse to drink as soon as he landed. One
example of this is given after his return from
an eight months' cruise, during the whole of
which term he had not tasted liquor:
As he neared Portland his agitation be
came intense. He had no idea that this
time he should drink, but became terribly
anxious to reach his family and convince
their loving hearts that his affection for them
was sufficient to overcome his appetite. He
landed, buttoned hi* overcoat to his chin in
his excess of resolution, reported to the own
ers, walked deliberately to the nearest rum
shop, and in two hours was stupidly drunk
An unseen, inexplicable, yet irresistible
power carried him, in spite of all his good
resolutions, totherfatal resorts. He went to

frienns, and did nothing but think, thor

trip. But love hunted him out his wifo got

His next two returns were but repetitions
of the one described. His family were in de

daughter determined that the next time love
should not be defeated.
W When his ship was nearly due she took
lodgings near the wharf, overlooking the
harbor, and the moment his vessels was
sighted, she took a sail-boat and went down
the harbor to meet him. Never was help
more needed. His straggles had effected a
mental and physical exhaustion rendering
him completely helpless. He embraced his
noble daughter almost hysterically, but warn

he should ran away from her.

What is BeingJDone with the Noble Ani
mal in 1818.
If tho "signs of the times" possess any
significance then is there to be a decked re
vival in horse Bporta in S Paul this season.
The movement for a new and mere conven
ient driving park is strongly indicative of
such a revival. Saturday evening the gen
tlemen interested in this movement, met at
the office of Dr. Stone to hear the report of
the committee appointed to examine the sev
eral locations offered and report as to
the most desirable. The committee reported
that they had examined the Sixth ward,
Lake Como and Summit avenue tracts men
tioned as suitable, finding them all well
adapted to the purposes. They had also
inquired as to terms upon which the requir
ed land could be secured, and had received
most liberal offers. While not desiring to
commit the meeting to. any particular local
ity, the committee were of the opinion that,
all things considered, the Sixth ward loca
tion was the most suitable.
It was also Btated that the management
of the S^. Paul Driving Park asso
ciation were wilting to grant
the new organization ail desired accom
modations on their grounds, and would
unite with it in any effort to popularize
horse sports. Finally, it was decided to con
tinue the committee to make further inves
tigation, to report at a meeting to be held
Thursday evening next, to which an adjourn
ment was had.
It is understood the new movement is
meeting with the moat flattering encourage
ment from our .citizens. It should
be understood that this is no
move against the present driving
park association. The objection to the
grounds of the present association is that
they are so far out, that no general attend
ance can be secured except on extra occa
sions, while thejgoverning idea at the founda
tion of the new movement, is a location so
easy of access that a Saturday afternoon
matinee, with a nominal admittance fee with
contests between fast steppers driven by the
owners, runing dashes, etc., will draw out a
Tho Sixth ward grounds seem to meet all
requirements. They are in plain view and
but a short distance from the heart of the
city. The ground is favorable for tho
economical construction of the ..track,
and a portion of the buildings
required are already erected. If they should
be decided upon, it is understood that the
base ball diamond will be preserved and
kept in order, so that games could be played
as desired. It is also understood that the
athletic club would unite in popularizing the
location for out-door-amusements by arrang
ing a series of walking and running con
tests. Between the racing matinees, ball
games, and the athletic sports, there would
be no trouble in getting up some attraction
every Saturday afternoon during the season,
with an extra day sandwiched in during the
week occasionally. Several horse trainers
stand ready to tako charge of
the grounds, it is understood, and
keep them in condition, and the
committee have already been applied to for
space for trainers and horses. Under such
circumstances it is not surprising that the
gentlemen moving in the matter feel san

$8,000 Young Bruno, $9,000 Miss Brunette,
$6,000 Breeze, $8,000. The amount actual
ly paid for the progeny of "Old Kate," says
The Spirit, with a fair valuation for her
present living descendants, exceeds $100,000.
She was a black mare, li.3 hands, with a
stripe in the face, white near fore ankle,white
near hind heel, and white off hind ankle..
A correspondent of Dunton's Spirit of the
Turf, writing from Owatonna, says:
I had the pleasure of meeting my old
friend Hiram Adams, at the driving park
stables. He has sixteen trotters and colts
under his watchful eye. The first shown us
was b. g. Prince Arthur. He is considered
by the knowing ones as the Whirlwind of the
West sired by Volenteure dam unknown.
Tho horse that heads him to the wire, will
have a record close to the teens, providing
Hiram drives him. ..Black Mollie, by
Jim Haven, dam unknown. She seems to
be the pet of the stable: could show 40 to a
cutter. G. g. Grey Dick, record 38. Hiram
says he is tinctured with Mustang blood, a
good one at least. Blk. Abdallah Clay, by
Clay Pilot, bred by G. F. Stevens, of Mil
waukee, owned by Dr. W. A. Ware, of this
city no record will be a good' moneyed
horse this season. B. h. Magna Charter, Jr.,
by Magna Charta, sixteen hands high can
show better than a 40 gait owned by Charles
Schurtz, of Osage, Iowa. S. g. Princ%
owned and bred by M. J. Toher sired by
"Blk. c. Undertaker, threeSyears old, by
Mambrino Eclipse, he by Alhambra, dam
unknown bred and owned by M. L. Strong.
For homeliness and crooked legs this one
heads the list. Hiram says he will make a
trotter, sure. B. m. Kittie Dutton, owned
by S. F. Wilklow, can trot in 40. There are
eight others taking their first lessons.
"M. L. Strong ia giving Little Babe regular
work. He is looking finer than I ever saw
him. He will prove a dangerous horse in
the 37 class this summer. H. W. Pratt has
the b. geldings Frank Brown and Sleeper,
both able to show 40 clip."

that the report greatly exaggerates the evil
effects of the disease.
