THE EED WING COLONY.
It in Composed of Scandinavians Exclu
sively, and Will Probably Settle at In
dian Lake, Nobles County.
Messrs. S. J. Willard and T. K. SimmonB,
the gentlemen who as heretofore noted in
the colums of the GLOBE, had arrived here
on Wednesday to negotiate with the Sioux
City & St. Paul railroad authorities for the
purchase of land in Nobles county for a Bed
Wing colony, concluded their labors yester
day and returned home on the evening train
to report the results of their mission. These
gentlemen, who with another had,
as a committe, visited Nobles
county, some week or so ago,
to seek a proper location for the colony and
had returned highly pleased with the Indian
lake section, yesterday obtained from the
railroad authorities the prices of lands in
some four or five localities and will report
the same to their people on their return to
Red Wing, and if the prices prove satisfac
tory the bargain will be consummated with
out further delay. To this end the railroad
company has granted them twelve days in
which to close the contract, and it is also
understood have met them in a liberal spirit,
though the lands partially selected are among
the best owned by the company and of course
command high prices.
The remainder of the company, whose
names are given in yesterday morning's
GLOBE, took the train as then stated, for
Nobles county, and will also institute a
search for lands, with the view of consult
ing their own tastes as to location, and are
expected to return by Monday next.
The colony will consist entirely of Scan
dinavians, and will probably comprise about
160 families. These are mostly laborers of
Red Wing, many of whom are in possession
of a few hundred dollars and one or two
teams, while others will engage as farm
hands, to their more fortunate brethren.
Among them, however, area few capitalists,
such as County Auditor Willard and banker
T. K. Simmons, who will purchase several
hundred acres or more apiece, and thereby
give employment to others. If the sale is
consummated, the indications are that it will
considerably exceed 20,000 acres.

File No. 2,614. F. Tenny & Co. vs. James
K. Goodhue. Order granted vacating judg
This decision involves a legal point of
more than usual interest to attorneys and
litigants. On Nov. 13, 1875, judgment was
tendervd, by default, to the plaintiff. Exe
cution was rendered against certain property
of the defendant, which was duly sold at
sheiiff's sale, and the judgment satisfied.
Ihe motion before the court, on
which the decision was tiled yes
terday, was that the judgment be
vacated by reason of defect in the summons,
as the place where, or at which, the defend
ant waa to seivo answer ^vas not therein
designated, as loquircd by the statute, and,
therefore, the couit of common pleas, in
which the judgment was accorded, had no
jurisdiction. The summons merely stated
that the defendants answer was to be served
in St. Paul, without particularizing anj
further direction. The comt held that ihe
mentioning of the place was, undei tha stat
ute, imperative that the summons was,
therefore, defective, and oideied the vaca
tion of the judgment.

The advantages of advertising in the GLOBE
were never more clearly demonstrated than last
night. A lady left an advertisement yesterday
for insertion in this morning's GLOBE, stating
the loss of a pocket-book. A GLOBE reporter
was at the police station last night, when a
Scandinavian was brought in, with the identical
pocket-book in his possession, he having
found it. Thus, the property was traced before
the advertisement appeared. So much for the
GLOBE'S enterprise and circulation.
Last evening Officer Claus saw a man lay
predatory fingers upon a keg of beer, the
property of Fritz Lehman, a saloon keeper on
St. Pete street, near Exchange. The amateur
beer peddier, an Irishman by the way, made off

chase, the keg was dropped. But, even thus
lightened, the^ would-be guzzler of free beer,
was no match for the policeman in speed, and
was run down on College avenue, and escorted
to the police station, where Claus politely bade
him "Gesundheit" in Swedish.

be pained. The order is good. "Hew to the

James Daley, a half breed, one of the Car

for the miserable jests of the ribald crowd.
Daley says that on Wednesday he called at a
house in this city and asked for food. He was
given apiece of bread, which, as he says, was
ddgrged with a violent purgative. Daley
evinced the symptoms of a generally starved
condition, which was not noticeable in the
A chirrupy four-year-old, named Frankie
Miller, residing on St. Peter street with his
parents, had a miraculous escape yesterday
noon from death or severe injury. The young

street, and plucked a handful of hay from the
rear of a passing load. At the moment, a
buggy, occupied by two men, came along at a
lively pace, the horse knocking the child down,
and one fore wheel passed over his neck.
Strange to say, Frankie never received even a
sciatch, and proceeded with his sport, though
somewhat frightened for a few moments.
In the GLOBE'S account of the arrest
of Jennie Green on Sunday night
there were some expressions used
which might be misconstrued as reflecting upon
the American House. The proprietors of the
hotel was in no wise responsible for the rob
bery. On the contrary, the prompt action of
the people of the house in at onoe notifying
the police of the plundering, and the facilities
they afforded in the arrest and examination of
the supposed thief were all that are commend
able. In these days, too, the hotel keeper can
hardly be held responsible for the characters of
his guests as long as they behave themselves,
These facts are now mentioned, as they failed

Yesterday's GLOBE purposely announced
that James Allen would be arraigned in the
municipal court that morning on the charge
of having robbed a man, named McLindon,
on the street. Allen was discharged yester
day on the ground of the absence of the
To say the least, there has been some
thing very peculiar about this case. The
alleged offense was committed as far back as
March 9, it having been postponed from
time to time since, on some pretext or other.
Allen was arrested shortly after the occur
rence of the theft, but was immediately re
leased for reasons that have never trans
pired. A GLOBE reporter witnessed the re
lease, and, his inquiries in relation to the
event being evaded, he immediately set
about gathering the facts.
In a short time, they were all in his posses
sion, together with the names of the parties
and witnesses concerned. Then Allen was
re-arrested, whether or not in consequence
of the detective proclivities of the GLOBE
representative at that very time, need not
here be said. Another significant fact is,
that none of the city dailies that were not
present at the various continuations ever got
wind of them, and the GLOBE is the only
one that has announced them completely, or
published the entire details of the robbery.
Now, the prosecuting attorney is not to be
fonnd, and the prisoner is discharged. The
GLOBE has a lurking suspicion of the why
and the wherefore of these peculiarities at
tending the case, but contents itself with
narrating the facts, leaving the public to
draw whatever inferences the public may

TJttff TRAMPING TRAMPS.
Arraignment of the Gang Captured In Car
There being literally no "woman in the
case," the attendance of spectators at the
municipal court yesterday morning was not
large. However, whatever may have been
the shortcomings in point of numbers in the
audienoe, ample vmends were afforded by
the multiplicity and disgusting quality of
the prisoners. Fourteen tramps were ar
raigned, of whom thirteen had been grabbed
in one grand haul by the police at Carver's
cave, as recounted in yesterday morning's
GLOBE. With the exception of one, the
half-breed elsewhere noted, they were all a
physically healthy lot, and ranged in age, as
given by themselves, from 19 to 30 years.
There was a vast amount of pent-up, useful
hard work in their carcasses, if it
could only have been evoked,
and properly directed. And the prisoners,
too, presented, with the single exception
named, a by no means starved appearance.
Scores of industriously-inclined laborers,
whether in or out of employment, may be
daily seen upon the streets with far more of
the pinched lines of starvation traced deeply
upon their countenances, than these pariahs
had. Their garments, however, beggared
description. One was dressed with even a
show of respectability and neatness, but the
balance constituted an unkempt, unwashed,
down-at-the-heel mass of humanity, that
must be seen to be appreciated, in all its
mess of unsavoriness.
The court proceeded with the trial, by
asking each one of the Ishmaelites his name,
age, occupation, and if he wanted work.
Without an exception, they all denied
being vagrants. Of whatever else they
might be uncertain, especially in the way
of occupation or desire for labor, they were
wonderfully clear upon that point. Most of
them declared they had only recently ar
rived in the city, and a few believed they
could get work, or had recently been at work
for a day or two. One all-pervading horror
seemed to permeate the whole of them.
They didn't want to break stones.
"Would you like to break stones?" queried
the judge of one of them.
"Not for the county" was the prompt
The list having been put through this
course of inquiries, the court proceeded to a
homily. They were informed they would
not be permitted to house themselves in
caves by night, and prowl about by day,
either in begging or stealing their food, or
anything else. They must either get work
or leave the vicinity, or the court would put
them upon the stone pile.
"Haw," asked one, "is a man to leave the
city without money?"
"If," sharply replied the court, "you could
travel from St. Louis without money, you
can get ten miles outside of this city with
The court, continuing, said there were
abundant opportunities for labor if they
were willing to grasp them. Farmers all
over the country would furnish them with
remunerative employment if they wished.
They would be allowed twenty-four hours to
do one of two thingswork or leave the
The court then asked all those to stand up
who were willing to accept those terms or
imprisonment, when they rose to a man, and
were discharged, filing noisily out of the
A Pouch 'Worth Having- in the House.
Dr. J. A. Harding, of Deadwood, who
arrived in 'this city on Wednesday evening,
has in his possession a solid "chunk" of gold,
without a blur or blemish, which is worth
exactly $46.60. The "chunk" is oval in
shape, but much flattened, and is exactly as
it was when taken trom the bowels of the
earth. It is evidently the result of the ac
tion of the intense heat of the volcanic fires
of centuries past, and perhaps was evolved in
the days of the "wreck of matter and the
crush of worlds" which marked the chaotic
epoch of the world's creation. This is but
one of many other nuggets of smaller size,
but equally free from dross, which the doc
tor carries with him in a buckskin pouch,
and which in value aggregate the very hand
some total of nearly $600. That pouch,
too, is a small one.

After Ten Tears in a Prison Cell.
Since the return of Jack Beno to Sey
mour, Indiana, from the Missouri peniten
tiary the newspapers have had considerable
to say about him. There seems to be a de
cided feeling to give the young man a chance
to become a law-abiding citizen if he is ac
quitted of the charge for which he is under
bail. John Beno is a man of marked intel
ligence, is a pleasant talker, speaking in a
low tone of voice, and always very earnestly,
as if in the strictest confidence, and bears
every appearance of being cool and deliber
ate. He served nearly three years in the
army, was a member of the Thirteenth regi
ment Indiana volunteers, and claims to have
been the sixteenth man who enlisted from In
diana. His prison life has agreed with him,
for he looks like the Jack Beno of twelve
years ago. Upon his return he was bewild
ered in the streets of his native town in
stead of the old fireside, he found the home
stead deserted instead of the family circle,
the marble monument over the graves of his
father, mother and three brothers met his
gaze. To see him talking to some of his
schoolmates, and hear him recall incidents of
boyhood days upon the playground, one
would hardly take him to be a desperado of
national reputation, and one of the most
skilful safe breakers in the United States.
Beno says: "The charges pending against
me cause me no anxiety, and I have no fears
of being lynched, though Allen Pinkerton
sent word to Missouri that the only way to
try me was under a tree."

"How old was he?"
"And what did he die of?"
"Well, he is better off," sighed the man,

At this point the Minneapolis &, St. Louis
railroad connects with the Burlington and
Cedar Kapids road giving through connec
tions with St. Louis. The line of the M.
and St. Louis road from Minneapolis to
Albert Lea is 108 miles in length, and passes
through a rich country, old and well settled.
At Miriam junction it connects with the St.
Paul and Sioux City road, at Chaska with
the Hastings and Dakota, at Waseca with the
Winona and St. Peter and at Albert Lea
with the Southern Minnesota railroad. The
two roads (Minneapolis & St. Louis and
Burlington Cedar Bapids) have erected a
large and commodious eating house and
hotel at Albert Lea which opened on the 3d
instant, under the management of that
prince of restaurantists, the genial Bunker,
late of the Portage City, Wis., eating house,
who has become so deservedly popular with
the traveling public at that latter point.
Albert Lea is a town of some 2,500 in
habitants, and seems to be a lively business
town. A very remarkable feature connected
with it, however, is the fact that they have
no city or village charter, which, however,
the citizens propose to remedy if their bill
passes the Legislature. On the night of the
first, for the first time in its history, they
were burglarized in some three or four places,
which, though not very fruitful in point of
spoils to the thief, is a strong argument in
favor of incorporation. B.
Russian Losses During the War.
Official returns state that the Russian
losses in killed and wounded during the late
war amounted to 89,304 officers and men.
Among these there were ten generals killed
and eleven wounded. One prince of the
imperial family and thirty-four members of
the higher nobility of Bussia fell on the field
of battle. Of the wounded, 36,824 are al
ready perfectly recovered, and 10,000 more
will be able to leave the hospital during the
next few weeks. The proportion of killed
and wounded to the total number engaged
was very large, one out of every six men who
went into action being either injured or left
dead on the field of battle. In the great ac
tions of the late France-German war the
proportion of killed and wounded to men
engaged was very nearly the same, being
one-sixth in the battles of Worth and
Spicheren, and one-eighth in the battle of
Mars-la-Tour. The returns also show that
one out of every eleven wounded men re
ceived into the Bussian hospitals died from
the effects of the injuries received. During
the whole campaign only two men were pun
ished with death one for the crime of deser
tion, the other for robbery, accompanied
with violence. On the other hand, $20,000
rewards were given in the form of decora
tions, promotions, or rewards of money, the
eighth corps, which so long held and de
fended the Shipka Pass, receiving the great
It Ought to Go North.
[St. Cloud Times.]
The GLOBE says that W. D. Washburn is
squarely in the field as a candidate for Con
gress, and that Alex. Bamsey ("Bluff Alec")
is the dark horse in the race. Bamsey, it is
said, as usual, disclaims being an aspirant,
but at the same time is setting up the pins
all over the district. The GLOBE
thinks that, as between Washburn
and Bamsey, Bamsey would win,
but that if Gen. Averill should enter
the list he could take the nomination away
from both. The GLOBE, like all other St.
Paul or Minneapolis representatives, seems
to imagine that the claims of gentlemen liv
ing outside of these two cities, are unworthy
of consideration, or do not enter into the
calculations on the result. Judging from the
past, this conclusion is correct. But, is it
not about time some other portion of the
district was complimented. Northern Min
nesota is entitled to the candidate.
Pure Whisky or None.
The temperance wave has at last struck
Hall, of the St. Paul GLOBE. has ex
pressed himself, and we are led to think that
Hall is a reformer. He wants pure whisky
or none, and he wants the temperance men
to get it for him. They won't do it, Mr.
Hall,they can't do it. If you propose to
have your pure spirits, wine and beer, you
must help yourself. Temperance people are
not in the liquor business.
