[Special Telegram to the Globe.]
WINONA, April 8.The passenger train which
left Chicago Sunday evening, on the Nortwest
ern road, met with a serious accident at 5
o'clock this morning} at a trestle work over
Barraboo river, six miles west of Reedsburg.
The locomotive broke through the tiestle, and
also a baggage car, which took fire, burning the
mail and baggage. The fireman, James Daly,
was instantly killed and Engineer Denis prob
ably fatally scalded. No one else was hurt. The
accident was caused by the burning of the
A PAS8ENGEB S STATEMENT
Heariry^that ]VL^ Rober^ Maunheimer, of the
firm of Maunheimer Bros., was a passenger on
(he kam, a GLOBE reporter called upon that
gentleman, who said, when the accident oc
cured he was sleeping in a Pullman car. He
felt three small jerks and then the cars btop
ped. He hurried on a pair of slippers and
stepped out, and saw that the trestle bridge
had broken through and the engine and two
cars lying beneath. The two cars were burning,
lie got off the sleeper, and climbed down the
trestle, a height of 8 or 10 feet, and ran to
here the engine was. The fireman was dead.
He must have been killed instantly,
for the coal was all piled on top of him,
but the engineer was suffeiing terri
bly. '"I do not -want to look upon
snch another sight." Mr. Maunheimer said.
"It makes me bhudder to think of it, and I shall
not want to travel again foi a while." There
\wts a hole in the poor fellow's head above the
oyo, and the eye was protmding from the sock
pi. his face was coveied with gore his head
cut in several places, and he complained dread
fully of his side and stomach. The doctor said
the lower part of the body was scalded dread
fully the groans of the poor man were terrible
to hear, and the sight made one quite sick.
The doctor told me that he could not live to
get to Baraboo.
A little fellow in the baggage car was bruised
onsiderably as the car rolled over on its side,
but he did no omplain much. The wrecked
eaiM* lay all night at right angles to the track,
and the smoking car pitched down one end of
the other eating on the trestle. It caught
tire, and for some time it was thought the
rleepe would burn, for it was found im
possible to uncouple them. Final
ly the employes cut down
"ome tiecs and broke the smoking car away,
and there being plenty of watei neai, ex
tinguished the fire. The trestle work is about
200 feet long."
KeporteiHow did the accident happen?
Mr. M.I cannot say. We were all in bed
nt the time, and knew nothing till we felt
the slight jerks, but the railroad men say the
oiidge was on file and bioke through.
ReporterDid you notice where the bridge
had been burned and so wrecked?
Mr. AI.I do not think it had been on fire. I
think the accident happened from rotten tim
ber. If the bridge had been on fire the engineer
must have seen it, for there is a big curve a
quarter of a mile from the bridge,
and if theie had been a fire it must
have been seen from the tiain. I ex
amined the timber and found it very rotten
where it was broken through and the fire box
of the engine set fire to the rotten dry wood
afterward. Many of the pasbengers thought
the same, but the railroad men say the bridge
was set on fire by a train passing early in the
night. It was about 5 o'clock in the morning
when the accident happened. The baggage car
was completely consumed. A traveling man
lost his two trunks of samples. The mails
were all lost. We were delayed about two
hours. The employes, especially those in charge
of the Pullman cars, did all in their power to
help to save the baggage and take care of the
wounded man. His sufferings were horrible
and his groans fearful. I shall, in future,
travel as little as possible.
A POSTOJTICE INTERVIEW.
A reporter of the GLOBE called upon Mr.
O'Brien, the obliging deputy postmaster,
through whose instrumentality the story of the
mail agent on the connecting West Wisconsin
railroad was heard. The mail agent's version
of the accident was to the effect that the
bridge, or, rather, the north approach to tho
bridge, had caught fire, most probably from a
passing train. Before the engineer was aware
of any danger, the engine, which was going
quite slowly at the time, suddenly fell through
the chasm, the tender following, and, with the
baggage and express cars, was piled upon the
engine. This completely filled the gap, which
was not large, as the descent to the river is not
deep. The fireman was instantly killed, and
the engineer was so badly scalded that his re
covery is deemed utterly hopeless. The bag
gage and express cars became detached from
the balance of the train, so that
none of the passengers were injured
in the least. No sooner did the two first cars
descend upon the wiecked engine below than
they became ignited, and every effort was bent
toward rescuing their contents, but all the bag
gage, all the mail matter, and all the express
matter, excepting the money, was destroyed.
There was no mail agent upon the train, the
mail matter being carried in the baggage car.
The end of the first passenger car nearest the
wieck was considerably scorched.
In reply to various inquiries, Mr. O'Brien
said the accident would have little effect upon
correspondence at this point, as the train only
collected the way letters for St. Paul, mailed
between Camp Douglas junction and here. No
registered letters, except from between those
points, would be destroyed, as they come with
the through mail, which is in
variably brought from Chicago over the
Chicago. Milwaukee & St. Paul road, unless
this road is blockaded or broken up. The
through mail had been received all right in
this usual course. The mails, however, for dis
tribution on the Winona & St. Peter railroad
would be on the train, as well as those for
pointb in Wisconsin between Elroy and Hudson.
The mail agent running on tne Chicago,
Milwaukee & St. Paul railroad, who was pres
ent at the conversation and who had formerly
run upon the Northwestern, estimated the
amount of mail matter destroyed at about fif
teen sacks of papers and five or six locked
AT THE RATLKOAD OFFICE.
A reporter of the GLOBE, with the view of
possibly ascertaining the railroad's version of
the disaster, called at the Northwestern com
pany's ticket office, corner of Third and Jack
son streets. The time of the visit was nearly
6 clock in the evening, or some thirteen hours
after the occurrence of the accident. The of
fice is in full telegraphic communication with
the wbole line of road, the telegraph instru
ment being in the bnsiness apartment. And,
yet, there was not a single soul among the of
ficials who "had heard of the accident, or could
tell where the conductor of the connecting and
arrived West Wisconsin train could be found!
The Sunday Globe.
To the Editor of the Globe.
Your Sunday paper was so full of good selec
tions in the miscellaneous department and
gave me snch rest that you will please allowme
to express my satisfaction by way of encourag
ing its continuance.
The two or three selections of poetry were
particularly good, and remarkably appropriate
to the day when the tired mind and spirit
yearns for rest and restful reading as much as
the body. The stories I did not read, but if se
lected with the same taste, and teaching good
morals, I have no doubt many others will .re-
spond amen to my compliment. Give us
plenty of good Sunday reading and you will do
well. Democrats are all religious you know.
ST. PAUL, April 8, 1878.
A New Driving Park.
The gentlemen interested in the establish
ment of anew driving park, held a good meet

red many from attending who would otherwise
have been present. The committee for that
purpose reported verbally that they had secured

The order which applied equally to each case
was as follows:
"After due deliberation had, the court con

an appeal from the judgment and an appeal
from the subsequent order, when there ought
to have been a separate notice fer each appeal.
But the notice is not en that account a nullity.
Thefbond. however, is not sufficient to cover
both appeals, nor does it show to which it ap

be severed so as to stand as two appeals, to

of this order the appellant file with the clerk of

The first case was No. 23, Edward H. Hol
brook, Jr., respondent, vs. The St. Paul Fire
and Marine Insurance Company, of St. Paul,
appellants. 3Ir. C. E. Flandrau, of tho firm of
Bigelow, Flandrau & Clark, was counsel for the
appellants and Mr. Chas. P. Biddle, of Minne
apolis, appealed for the respondent.
The action arose out of a policy of insurance
made by certain parties calling themselves the
Minnesota Land Co., with the appellants in
favoi of the respondent.
For the appellants Mr. Flandrau agreed that
the Minnesota Land Company, hav
ing been incorporated in Holland,
could not exercise corporate rights
in this State, although their incorporation was
perfectly valid under the laws of the Nether
lands. Against the theory that they dealt with
appellants as a corporation, he urged that they
had no color of right to the designation, and a
corporation cannot be created by estoppel.
Mr. Flandrau next considered the question
of the Insurance Co., having dealt with the
Land Co. as being in partnership, and stated it
as his opinion that they must stand or fall by
their actual organizations, which was not one
Several other points were made by counsel
for the appellants, with regard to misrepresen
tation and the fact that the live stock had not
been destroyed in the building, accurately laid
down in the policy, and in concluding he re
plied to the cases quoted by respondent, ar
guing that no single one of them was a case in
Mr. Biddle in arguing the case for the re

accurately stated by his opponent, and pro
ceeded to give his version of the matter. He
considered the case rested on these points, 1st.
was there a contract? 2nd, was there an in
surable interest? and 3d, Was the loss covered
by the insurance?
The learned counsel quoted several cases in
support of his argument, and after a reply

In the next case, No. 24, Bartlett Presley et

npon the ground of wrongful admission of evi
dence and misdirection of the jury, and also
that the verdict was contrary to law and
against the weight of the evidence. Upon
these points the learned counsel made a strong
and emphatic argument.

The Armorer at the Athenumm.
It could not have been expected with such
weather as last night, that there would have
been a large audience at the Atheweum. The
only wonder was that there was an audience at
all, so incessant and heavy was the rain. There
were, however, some two hundred persons who
witnessed the performance of the Armorer.
This charming opera, with its sprightly
music, has been noticed before
in these columns, and the completeness
of its settingthe excellent scenery, appropri
ate costumesand unusual merit of the per
formance have been commented on. Last night
in some respects the performance was even
better than on the occasion of its first pro
duction, but in many points it fell short of it.
Unfortunately for the chance of complete suc
cess, Mr. Albert Scheffer, on account of a severe
cold, was unable to sing, and Mr. C. Dreher,
who was substituted, was so new to the part
that uncertainty deprived him of that spon
tanety of action, vivacity and spirit so essential
to his own part, and for the inspiration of
Marie and other leading roles. F. Werner as
Georg, was in better voice than on the last
occasion. Mr. P. J. Giesen bravely tried to
instill life and soul into the piece, but
even heat times was affectedby the weather.
Miss Emma Faber and Miss Brown on the
whole were good. Mr. Koenig was funny in the
extreme as Brenner. I would be hard to say
why Mr. Bear is on the programme called a
Basso. The choruses were very creditably ren
dered the orchestra played the catching music
excellently. I is a pity the pianist does not
give more attention to his instrument instead
of aiming to be conductor of orchestra,
prompter, stage manager, and everything else
combined. If he were to play more judiciously,
and leave the orchestra to Seibert, the stage to
Giesen. and the soloists to themselves, instead
of wildly sawing the air with one hand, fran
tically gesticulating and dashing the piano in
discriminately with the other hand, there would
be a marked improvement. In spite of the
drawbacks named, and the depressing influence
of the weather, the performance, taken as a
whole, was equal to many vastly more preten
tious. I is to be hoped the management will
carry out the expressed intention of repeating
the same opera in a few daysit is worthy of
repetition, and a crowded house.

The Controversy as to Management, to go
into CourtWhere was Judge Good
The Historical Society of Minnesota held a
regular meeting last evening, Hon. E. Drake
in the chair, the GLOBE, as usual, being the
only paper represented.
The sole matter under discussion was con
tained in a resolution offered by General J. B.
Sanborn, the text of which was as follows:
WHEREAS, The Legislature of the State of
Minnesota, by the act entitled, "An act to ap
propriate money for the general expenses of
the State government for the year one thou
sand eight hundred and seventy eight, ap
proved March 7, 1878," did among other things,
enact as follows, viz.26th: For the support
of the Minnesota Historical society, $2,500.
Provided, That, inasmuch as there are
two organizations now representing, or
who claim the right to represent
and manage this society, the one composed of
the original members named in the charter or
act of incorporation, and the successors of de
mised corporators duly elected the other
chiefly composed of parties who became resi
dents of Minnesota subsequent to the organi
zation of said society, who claim that they have
ousted or superceded the original charter par
ties, and thereby or therefore insist that they
are its rightful managers therefore and inas
much as it is of vital importance to the State
that the legal status of this institution be
speedily and finally determined, no part of the
above appropriation shall be drawn from the
treasury even by the original board
of incorporators or trustees or by
the executive council of the Historical
society of Minnesota or by the officers, agents,
or representatives of either of these organi
zations, until the question: "Who are the right
ful custodians and managers of the trusts and
assets of said society?" shall have been de
termined by the udgment or decree of a com
petent tribunal, and whereas this society is
willing and anxious to comply with the provis
ions of said act of the Legislature and have the
question therein specified determined as there
in provided at the earliest day practicable.
Resolved, That an information in the nature
of a quo warranto be presented or filed by or in
the name of the attorney general,
without unnecessary delay in the Supreme
court of this State against the persons claim
ing to possess and exercise the franchise of the
Minnesota Historical society, under the associ
ation or alleged organization of which Gen.
H. Sibley is President, and Hon. Aaron Good
rich is Secretary, to determine the question
specified in said act, viz: "Who are the right
ful custodians and managers of the Minnesota
Historical society?" as the same has been r
ganized and managed since the year one thons
and eight hundred and forty-nine.
Resolved, That the officers of this society be
constituted a board of managers, to institute
and conduct the proceedings necessary to laise
and determine the question aforesaid, with in
structions so to manage said proceedings as to
avoid all costs to the society.
The meeting was most harmonious in the
passage of the above resolution, the opposition
society being conspicuous by the absence of any
of its supporters.
After a general conversation as to the legal
hearing of the motion, the meeting adjourned
about half past nine.
Trial of the Case of the Men Who Abused a
All Robert street was represented at two
o'clock yesterday afternoon in the municipal
court, the occasion of the gathering being the
trial of Richard Ackley and Richaid McClog
gan, charged with cruelty to a bear. J. B.
Boyle and J. D. O'Brien. Esqs., respectively
appeared for the prosecution and defence. The
trial lasted two hours.
The prosecution called the following wit
nesses: Thomas Cochran, Jr., real estate agent
and a member of the Society for the Prevention
of Cruelty to Animals Hermann Scheffer. cor
respondent of Dawson & Co.'s bank: David
Leavitt and Enoch M. Hallowell, carriage
builder. The testimony of the last named
was unimportant. The others unanimously
concurred characterizing the treatment of
the bear by the defendants as "outrageous."
The animal was being led behind a wagon, in
which the defendants were seated, and to which
the bear was attached by a stout chain. The
bear would walk along a few feet, would
then be rolled over and dragged
along upon its side in a most painful and dis
tressing manner. The bear was evidently
much distressed, Mr. Schaffer swearing that
its tongue protruded as if the animal was hi
pain. Mr. Cochran remonstrated with the
defendants, who replied that he might take the
bear, if he chose. Bruin was taken to the rear
of the defendant's butcher shop on Robert
street, where Mr. Cochran threatened them
with prosecution, Ackley retorted by calling
Mr. Cochran a "band-boxy fellow," and used
other unseemly language.
The defense put in the following array of
witnesses: the defendants J. F. Mcintosh, a
butcher doing business on Robert street E.
W. Chase, secretary of the society for the
prevention of cruelty to animals and Thomas
Crosby, an eye witness from Mendota.
The general tenor of their evidence was,
of course, opposite to that of the prosecution.
It was claimed that the bear would plant his
fore paw in advance of him, rolling over of his
own accord in resistance to his being led, and
that he was a desperately ugly "cuss" anyhow.
The defendants claimed they had treated the
bear as humanely as possible, stopping when
he rolled over so frequently that it had taken
over an hour to lead him from Tenth street,
where he had been purchased.
In his argument for the defense. Mr. O'Brien
raised the question of the jurisdiction of the
court in the premises, and the case was con
tinued until Wednesday to permit time for the
TRAMP, TRAMP, TRAMP.
The Boys are Marching With Bread and
Water as Their Goal.
The seven tramps, whose arrest on Saturday
evening was detailed in the Sunday GLOBE,
confronted Judge Flint yesterday morning in
the municipal court. Their names were George
Togen, Patrick Mills, James Willis, James
Kelly, William Ashford, James Doolittle and
Edward Griffith. Though better dressed than
the memorable thirteen who were bagged so
successfully in Carver's cave, yesterday's as
sortment was more villainous-looking than the
latter. They were, with, perhaps, one exception,
of .that bullet-headed tvpe so universally
characteristic of "hard pills."
Short work was made of their conviction, the
testimony of the arresting officers being sharp
and conclusive. Togen and Mills were the two
upon whom were found the two bottles
of whisky, and who gave the
police especial trouble in their arrest,
and each was sentenced, in default of $5 and
costs, to one week's imprisonment at hard
labor and to be fed on bread and water. The lat
ter part of the sentence was not received by
the prisoners with an infinite degree of relish.
Ashford, Willis and Kelly were the next most
troublesome lot. Ashford and a companion
were found in a saloon, out of which they were
yanked by Officer DeCorsey. "What riht,
asked the indignant Ashford of that officer,
"have you enter into a saloon
and take me out?" "Because,"
cooly answered DeCorsey, "you were
complained against." That settled it, and the
trio was sentenced, in default of $3 and costs,
to four days of similar treatment as that ac
corded to their two illustrious predecessors.
Sentence, however, was suspended, and they,
with the Doolittlewell namedand Griflith
it should have been Griffinwere given five
minutes to leave the city, and away they -clat
tered out of court.

THE SILVER LINING
Whicli Marks Life's Pathway for Hon. and
W. P. Murray, Esq., and his estimable ladj
were nnexpetedly called on last night by a host
of their personal friend.,, who made tho occur
rence of the twenty-fifth anniversarv of their
guests' wedding day the occasion of a genuine
surprise party. On all occasions, festive or
serious, joyous or sad, a GLOBE reporter is al
ways on hand, and last night was no exception.
The GLOBE man found the Murray mansion,
No. 63 East Seventh street, literally besieged
with guests, though the bad weather prevented
the presence of many who had designed to be
present. After the festivities had been in pro
gress some time, Capt. M. J. O'Connor called a
halt, and inviting Mr. and Mrs. Murrav to the
"Mr. Murray, a few of our personal friends,
hearing thai this was your silver wedding day,
deemed it proper to call and express their ap
preciation of you many excellent qualities as
a citizen and public officer. In token of our
esteem, we thought it would be appropriate, on
this occasion, to make you a legal tender of
this puree, filled ith the silver dollars of our
fatkers, which were in vogue twenty-five yearb
ago. We assure you. and your excellent lady,
that we hope yoor golden wedding daj will
find you hale and hearty and enjoying the
good things of life and when you finally leave
all earthly cares here below, and appear at the
Golden city, that you will find the gates ajar,
and all tribute paid in the many unselfibh
actions you have peformed in life."
Mr. Murray replied that he was very thank
ful to the donors for their good will, but hedid
not want to commit himself on the silver ques
tion. He would send the dollars down to the
First National bank to-morrow and have them
tested, and if they proved to be genuine he
would return thanks on bome futuie occasion.
Mr. Murray's, residence in St. Paul ante
dates his marriage some four years, and hence
the entire quarter of a century of wedded lHI
has been passed this community. It is
doubtful whether any silver wedding, similar
in this respect, has ever been celebrated in St.
Paul and it was highly appropriate that the
congratulations should have been bestowed in
the practical manner noted. Hosts of friends
will endorse the bentiment of Capt. O'Connor,
wishing them an opportunity to celebrate their
golden wedding with all "the pleasure that
marked the silver epoch.
