Patriotic Powder Burning and a Good
Time Generally at OwatonnaA Success

Day at Wabashaw, White Bear and Other
[Carrespondence of the Globe.]
OWATONNA, July 4, 1878.Patriotic pow
der is exploding in every direction here this
morning. Long befoic daylight, anvils were
planted in commanding positions, and the
bombarding of the city was begun. A hot
fusilade was kept up for four mortal hours,
at which time the enemy ran out of powder
and breath. Soon after, the bands
began to play the dead march
of Saul, and the ragamuffins
made their appearance. They were a sorry
looking set. They brought to mind the last
tnbo of Israel or the last loses of summer.
The rags were not numerous bnt they were
wojetul. They are now on their way to the
Ho Land. The fire companies aie parad
ing, and a general jollification is going on all
On the lace track early this morning
some fine speeding was indulged in, and quite
a large number of people were out to witness
the exhibition. The surrounding country is
pouting its population into the town, and the
luralists have taken possession of the streets
and have formed solid squares on the cor
ners. The day is warm, bright and beauti
ful, and lemonade flows like a thousand little
nvers. The Arnold house last night was full
of guests fiom basement to garret. Every
available spot was utilised. Half a hundred
cots wore made up the parlor, halls, din
mg-room, office and other places, that none
should go away for the want of rest.
All are on a tiptoe of expectation about
the laces to-day. The champions are
to go this afierno and spec
ulation runs high as to the result.
The purses aie quite large, and the winners
get their money on the spot, without defal
cation or discount. Never were races better
managed, and the association certainly de
seive nioie than a mere compliment. There
is a spmt of honor and liberality on the
part of the members that is quite unlooked
for on occssions of this charaoter. The
victois walk up to the judges1
at the conclusion ot each race,
pocket their greenbacks and stalk
off with a bioad gun of satisfaction. The
officeis of the association are H. Murray,
piesidont G. "VV. Caward, treasuier, and F.
Mai lay, secretaiy. The stockholders and
diiectois are some of the most prominent
ana influential citizens of Owatonna,.
"WABASHAW, July 4th.To-day has been
the giandest day in all the history of this
beautiful nver city. It was not only that
our national holiday caused the bosoms of
thib good people to expand and their hearts
to feel wild with joy, but that the day was
made the occasion for a general rejoicing
and mutual congratulation over the com
pletion of the Midland as tar as Zumbrota,
and the consequent advantages to be derived
thtsiefrom. The city has been bowered and
gaily decked with bunting, while a grand
tuumphal arch some thirty feet high, and
suppoit^d by two side aiches of less dimen
sions, placed across Main street, near the
store of Lucas Kuehn, is an
obiect of especial interest. Over the
conter arch the words, "Success to
the Nanow Gauge,"' appeals in
bold relief, while the side arches bear the
mscnption "Conceived by home intellect"
and "Executed by home capital," respective
ly. Very eaily in the day it became apparent
that the crowd would be immense, and by
the aid of the Midland and the boats Waba
shaw's population for the day was swelled to
ovei 10.000. At 10 A. M. the procession was
formed at the Midland depot in the follow
ing oidoi: Wabashaw and Head's band, Wa
bashaw file department, car containing thir
ty-eight young ladies representing the States,
cais representing all the principal business
houses and manufacturing establishments
of the city, the McGibeny fam
ily band, citizens in carriages,
and on foot, and the Zumbio Falls (Waba
shaw county) band escoitmg visitors. The
piocession moved through the principal
stieeis, passing and lepassing under the
giand aich to the grove at the foot of
Bioadway, wheie the declaiation was read
by J. N. Muidock, Esq., after which the
oiator of the day, Hon. I. Donnelly was in
troduced, and proceeded to give one of those
rousing speeches, for which he is justly so
famous. At the close of the oration the
exeicises were varied and interesting in the
extreme, consisting of single and four oared
races, log rolling and tub races, shooting
matches, with both shot gun and line,
jumping, wiesthng and other Buch games.
In the shooting match M. E. Taber, Esq., of
Plamview (this county), broke eighteen glass
balls without a miss, shooting off a triple tie
of ten, with the last five cariying off the
champion gold badge. In the evening the
McGibeny family gave one of their unpar
alleled concerts"under the auspices of the
Wabashaw fire department, who concluded
the night with a giand ball. At about 2 p.
M. the Arkansas, having on board over 1,000
excursionists from Winona and vicinity
called on their way up to the foot of the
lake, and also on their it-turn, their gaily
decked boat, fine band and happy faces
tending to enliven the already happy scene.
The booming cannon, the stirring music
from the fine bands, the gaily bowered
and bunting decked city, the happy throngs
of people, and the entire absence of any ac
cident or notous act has rendered the day
one of analloj ed happiness, and one not soon
to be forgotten. Great credit is due Dr. F.
H. Milhgan, president of the day W. S.
Walter, maisbal in chief and J. B. Hawley,
chief engineer fire department, and master
of ceiemomes, for their untiring efforts to
rendei the day a success. B.

ROCHESTER, July 5.Our citizens did not
celebrate yesterday, so at 6 A. M. found your
ooriespondent in company with seventy-five
others to join an excursion up to Lake
Pepin. The exodus from the city was large
to different places, many going to the races
at Owatonna and other places. Our number
swelled to nearly 200 when we reached Wi
nona, and with 600 others started at 9:20 on
a trip of about sixty miles up the river on
the commodious steamer Arkansas, Capt. L.
McDonald. And here let me say that if any
of the inland towns contemplate a similar trip
include Capt. McDonald, for a more careful
captain and pilot cannot be found on the
river. Passing Fountain City, Minnieska,
Alma, the grand encampment or Indian
council grounds and the Lion's head were
pointed out to us by the pilot.
We reached the lake at about 3 p. M., and
after a nde ot ten miles started on our return
with Miss Elner at the helm. The Winona
cornet baud furnished music at intervals dur
ing the trip. We reached Winona at 12
o'clock M., and on the whole it was a most
enjoyable excursion, with nothing to mar the
pleam of any. Financially it was a success,

deserve. Having labored diligently
and hard to please their patrons, they should
be amply remunerated.

All those we have met who spent the last

A False Alarm.
To the Editor of the Globe.
The Fourth of July, 1878, is likely to be
well remembered by the citizens of Owa
tonna for the Test of their natural lives. He
had just fallen asleep, when he was awoke by
the sound of a bell. Thinking of nothing
less than a fire as the cause, he hastily donned
his garments, and telling his wife he was go
ing to the fire, was soon speeding, hot foot,
to the scene. The cool midnight air, how
ever, and a half mile lun, impressed upon
his mind the firm conviction that he was
badly sold, and that this was the eve of the
birthday of our hbeity and that the citizens
weie ushering it in the good old style.
Meanwhile his better half, more asleep than
awake, could imagine nothing less
than a regular Indian massacre as
the cause of this bell ringing and gun
firing, and so impressed was she with the un
told honors implied by such an event, that bhe
fled precipitously across the tomatoes
and through the gooseberry bushes,
to warn the neighborhood of their
impending doom. The denouement
may be safely left to the reader's
imagination. We are, however, glad to be
able to state that this lady, although much
skaken by the fright, is likely to recover, and
that her hair is still where it grew, and of its

JOHNNY BOLL'S FIRST DEFEAT BY AMERICANS.
LONDON, July 5.The Columbias, who
have won the only boat race ever gained by
an American crew in England, are the heroes
of Henley. The superb form they have
shown the past few days surprised even
their best friends. At the start for the final
heat of the Visitors' challenge enp to-day
the Columbia crew dipped their oars first
and took the lead running a tremendous
stroke, and at Fawiey Court boat house were
a length ahead of the Hertford boat. Near
mg liementam the Hertfords being in
structed from the shore, spurted and reduc
ed the Columbia's lead to half a length, but
on reaching Rementam farm
house the Columbias increased their
speed again, improved their
position and soon were able to take the
Hertford's water the same as the day before,
notwithstanding the Hertford's frantic efforts
to prevent it. The Hertford's only hope
now was to catch the Columbia boat by
touching it and thus claim a foul, the Co
lumbia boat being out of its own water.
Goodwin perceived the danger and called on
his men for a further spurt, and they an
swered with a tremendous burst of speed
which sent them ahead fully two lengths and
a half. The speed was so great that it com
pletely exhausted the Hertfords, whose bow
dropped his oar almost fainting. The
others were also completely "pumped," and
the boat, not being steered, ran ashore, the
Couamliis finishing the course amidst ring
ing cheers from the shore in eight minutes
and forty-one seconds.
HE SHOWAEOAEMETTES' TERRIBLE DISAPPOINT-
In the final race for the steward's cup
there was some delay caused by the Sho-wae
cae-mettes' over-eagerness to get away, but
when the signal was given the London row
ing club men, who got off well, made for the
Berks shore, getting into still water, the
wind to-day being for the boat on the Berks
side. The Sho-wae-cae-mettes went straight
down the midd'e, getting the advantage in
the first hundred yards and leading the Lon
don half a length. The latter crew rowed
giandly, without fault, and at Fowley
Court by a spuit led the Sho-wae-cae-mettes
by a quarter of a length. This challenged
the Sho-wae-cae-mettes. who had been
rowing 44 strokes, and they increased the
number to 48. Both crews approached
Poplar Point at a terrific rate on almost even
terms. Suddenly the Londons shot ahead a
length in an astonishing manner, and it was
soon seen that something was the matter in
the Sho-wae cae-mette boat club, but no one
was prepared to see the latter crew stop short
apparently used up. After pausing a few
seconds, the Shc-"wae-cae-mettes went slowly
in, Messrs. Nadeau and Durrell pulling the
boat alone, Joseph Nadeau was completely
doubled up. The cause of their defeat was
soon explained. Joseph Nadeau had been
seized with a violent attack of diarrhoea early
in the morning, and after the practice pull
his condition became worse bnt he pluckily
refused to listen to the pioposition to with
diaw from the lace.
At the conclusion of the heat, the other
three men came in, not at ail annoyed by
the tenible struggle. What there was of
the race was the haidest ever rowed at Hen
ley. The London's time was eight minutes,
twenty-six seconds. Tho Shoes, at first ac
cepted their defeat with nonchalence, but
once at their quarters, they fairly ciied at
their bitter disappointment. The Shoes,
will probably go to London Tuesday, and
sail on the Utopia for home July 17th.
Geo. W. Lee, of Newaik, contemplates
remaining to compete at the Metropolitan
regatta for the sculls now held by Playford.
PRESENTING THE PRIZES.
Lord Carners presenting the prizes compli
mented the Columbias on their pluck in
coming over and hoped they wonld come
again. The Columbias dined with the Trin

the London Bowing club. They will come
to London to-morrow, and after a few days
will sepaiate. A dinner will be given them

NEW YORK, July 5.A Herald special says of
the defeat of the Sho-wae-cae-mettes: It was
at first believed they had given up through
exhaustion, but it seems when in the worst
exciting pait of the lace the captain of the
Shoes' called for a spurt. The men failed to
respond just at that moment, in fact Joseph
Nadean gave out. He was suddenly taken
sick and was unable to make any further
efforts. It was afterwards learned Nadean
had been sick for some days past. He
seemed to be all right yesterday, however,
and although attacked last night again he
failed to let his companions know of the
NEW YORK, July 5.The victory of the
Columbia crew at Henley, while causing gen
eral rejoicing throughout this city, is of
course hailed with special delight by the un
der graduates and alumni of the college.
Whenever Columbia men meet theie is a
warm exchange of greeting and the winning
crew are praised in the most flattering man
ner. The Columbia boat club house was
decorated this morning with blue and white
muslin and the boat club flag was hoisted.
A wish is expressed that a match might be
made in this country between the Columbia's
crew and the Sho-wae-cae-mettis.
N EW YORK, July 5.An enthusiastic crowd
of graduates and undergraduates of Colum

"If there be any difference of opinion as to
the choice of location you will keep in mind
that the Indian choice is to be respected, and
that it is most important to keep perfect

LAID ON THE SHELF.
Thirty-two Officers of the Regular Army
Are Placed on the Retired TAst.
An order was received at military head
quarters yesterday, signed by Gen. Sherman
and Adjt. Gen. Townsend, retiring from
active service thirty-two officers of the reg
ulararmy. These have been found incapacita
ted for active service on account of disability.
Several of those composing the list were
wounded a great many years ago, and have
suffered much while engaged in active ser
vice. The officer who has won most dis
tinction is Col. Pitcher, who made for him
self a good record during the war of the re
bellion. Lieut. Braden was wounded in the
fight with the Sioux Indians at the time of
the Custer massacre, and has been incapaci
tated for duty most of the time since. He
belongs to the famous 7th cavalry, and has
several times distinguished himself by the ex
hibition of good fighting qualities. The
others are scarcely less deserving of com
mendation and credit for bravery and faith
ful service. The list of officers retired by
this order is as follows: Col. Thomas G.

GREEK QUESTION SEma^fe*^*
BERLIN, July 5.The Greek question was
settled in the congress to-day. A||sQlution
was passed that congress invites the Porte to
come to an understanding with Greece for
the rectification of her frontiers, and is of
opinion that the line should be from the
valley of Salambria, on the iEgean sea, to
the month of Kalamas river, opposite Corfu.
In the event of difficulties arising in the ne
gotiations, the powers are ready to render
their good offices as mediators.
LOSDON, July 6.In the ratification of the
Greek frontier question, it is understood the
line includes Larissa.
A Berlin despatch states it is certain the
~"J"' powers by offering mediation mean that the
"nrst and thud -wlnmtetr
sfiall not mean a dead letter.
France and Italy warmly supported the
Greek_-, ldniB7~ .Lord Bet
been induced to accept even that
moderate proposal. As the precise boundary
indicated therein seemed to limit the sov
ereign will of the Porte, he was unable to
accede to any demands amounting to a
division of Turkey, Epirus and Thessaly not
being in a chronic state of anarchy like
Bosnia. The Greeks are profoundly disap
pointed at the decision of the Congress.
Turkey had privately declared she would go
to war with Greece rather than cede the two
Saturday's sitting, in which the questions
of Batoum and Armenia are to be discussed,
will virtually end the congress. The remain
ing proceedings, principally formal, will
probably last till Thursday.
THE FINANCIAL QUESTION
and that of the government of western
Roumelia, will be submitted to a commission
of ambassadors resident in Berlin, which
meets after the dissolution of the congress.
Prince Bismarck has informed a corres
pondent that he thinks the czar will consent
to destroy the fortifications of Batoum.
AUSTRIA IN FUND S.
VIENNA, July 5.The Austrian government
has received the remaining seven million flor
ins from the bankers who undertook to raise
thirty millions fi mobilization. The
mobilization of additional troops begins Sat
urday. Adakaleh has been definitely ceded
LONDON, July 5.A paper has been posted
in all the cotton mills of the Stockport dis
trict giving a fortnight's notice of a 5 per
cent, reduction in wages. The operatives
seem to favor resistance. A strike there
would affect 25,000 people.

BERLIN, July 5.Rournania is to be ad
mitted to the permanent international com
mission for the navigation of the Danube.
LONDON, July 5.At TLuisday's sitting of
the congress it was settled that the monks of
all nationalities inhabiting Mount Otho,
should have equal privileges. The only res
eivation as to the Danube is that Russia,
whilst acknowledging the entire freedom of
that river in time of peace, does not admit
such freedom in time of war. The supervis
ion in the existing commission is to be
maintained with its jurisdiction ex
tended to Galatz.
LONDON, July 5.A Berlin correspondent
bases his supposition as to the probable set
tlement of the Batoum question by Russia
receiving Batoum on condition of never for
tifying under any pretext, are Prince Bis
marck's utterances at Tuesday's interview,
and believes if the question is not settled
privately, but is brought forward at Satur
day's sitting, Bismarck will resolutely take
Russia's part ai*d declare that while he
should applaud any compromise, he cannot
but consider binding the signatures of Tur
key and England to the San Stefano treaty
and the Anglo-Russian agreement respec
ENGLISH PRESS DISSATISFIED.
The English press unanimously, even in
cluding the Daily News, object to the ces
sion of Batoum. The conservative organs
are very discontented with the results of the
congress, but they all regard danger of
rupture as obviated.
The Times regards the statement of Sir
Stafford Northcote, chancellor of the ex
chequer, in the house of commons, last night
that he was led to hope in ten days or a fort
night the negotiations at Berlin would be far
enough advanced to permit him to submit
supplementary estimates, and shortly after
wards make a statement to the house as a
clear announcement of bis belief that the
government is confident of the attainment
of a peaceful settlement at Berlin within the
next few days.
BERLIN, July 5.There is no reason to be
lieve a scheme is under negotiation at pri
vate conferences of the plenipotentiaries
whereby England would undertake protec
tion of Armenia in something the same way

[Knightstown (Ind.) Correspondence Indianap
Your correspondent attended a meeting of
the Red Ribbon club in this city a few even
ings since, and listened to an address by
Charles D. Hildebrana, a reformed drunk
ard. At the conclusion of the address the
speaker promised his audience, if they would
only come to hear him the next evening,
that they would learn something in relation
to the close connection of whisky to crime,
the inner history of penitentiaries, and the
punishment received there which would
The bronzed face, the nervous glance of
the eye, so often seen in criminals, and the
peculiar bitter tone of the speaker when he
referred to prisons, attracted my attention,
and an indefinable something in his general
appearance led me to believe that his hfo
had been a supremely bad one. So, after
he resumed his seat I handed him my card
and invited him to accompany me to my
room at the Shipman House. He consented,
and, after we were comfortably seated, he
'did a tale unfold," which, if true, entitles
him to a place in the annals of time, along
side of Claude Duval and Dick Turpin.

sional tiheves, and was taken to Paris. Since
that time I have served in eleven peniten
tiaries, eighteen years' close confinement,
not including short confinements in numer
ous station-houses, city prisons, and county
jails. My first sentence was in Paris, France,
two years in prison for pocket-picking. Was
released after three months' confinement, on
account of my extreme youth, being then
only 9 years old. Was sentenced next to
six months' imprisonment in Bailey Prison,
London, for the same offense. There I
learned the alphabet for the first time. I
then went to Canada, and was sentenced to
one year's confinement in the Kingston's
Penitentiary for buiglary. and for refusing
to obey prison order3 was confined during
the whole term of my sentence in a dungeon,
and for nearly 365 days I did not see tlu
light of day. When I was released from
Canada I begun my regular occupation, viz:
bank and county treasury work. This was
my particular line of business, and I seldom
did any work outside of this, which is decid
edly the best branch of tho profession.
From 1852 to 1854 I served in Alleghany,
Pa., where I learned to read and write. Went
then to Havana, and received a sentence of
twenty one years for a red-hot bank rob

In 18561 was sentenced eight years to the
Nashville, Tenn., State prison, but I was
"flush," had some powerful friends and good
lawyers, and served only thirty days. In
1857 I was sentenced four years to the Lou
isiana State prison at Baton Rouge, but the
same influences which secured my release
from Nashville were used with like effect in
Baton Rouge, and 1 saw the inside of tlin
walls only two months.
My next sentence wad in 1858, for three
years, in the Illinois State prison at Alton.
I was afterwards transferred to Joliet, and it
took me seven years to serve my sentence. I
escaped four separate times, and was recap
turea each time. My partner, Geoige Chase,
was hung at Joliet for killing Deputy War
den Clarke. Clarke was a brutal fellow, and
tyrannized unmercifully over Chase. For
some trifiing disobedience Clarke undertook
to whip him, and when he took hold of bun
to lead him to the whipping-post, the con
vict drew a slung-shot, which he had madf
of a stone and some leather, and killed Clarke
with a single blow. 1 was released from Jol
let Feb. 13, 1866.
In May, 1866, I made my escape from the
Indianapolis jail, where I had been locked up
on charge of a bankrwbbery, and the Ind an
apohs city court was the only place where 1
ever gave my true name.
In the fall of 18661 was bentenced for five
years to the Wisconsin State prison at Wau
pun, and for refusal to work I was confined
in a csll four feet by seven, with a ball and
chain to my foot, for foui jears, four months
and seventeen days. Was released March
In 1874 I was sentenced at Terre Haute
to four years' confinement in the Indianapo

sentence curtailed four months on ac
count of good behavior. Was released Oct
I was arrested in Indianapolis in 1872, on
charge of complicity in the Meridian street
bank robbery, but no evidence was offered
which could hold me. I was immediately

Hildebrand states that the finest piece of
work ever execnted in the United States (of
course he was not engaged in it) was the rob
bery of the Falls City bank in Louisville.
The burglars gained an entrance Saturday
night, into an insurance office immediately
above the vault, took up the carpet, sawed
out the floor, took up the bricks until they
reached the vault then, from 4 o'clock Sun
day morning until 1 o'clock Monday morn
ing, they succeeded, but not without the
hardest kind of hard work, in drilling 194
holes through the chilled steel top, three
quarters of an inch thick, and lifted the plate
out. Then they had nothing to encounter
except plaster-of-paris cement and soft
iron. The haul realized them $325,000 in
currency, bonds and diamonds.
Hildebrand further states that in the cases
of county treasury robberies, where combi
nations have been opened, treasurers are
often unjustly accused of complicity. Men
can be found, and without much difficulty,
who will disclose combinations for a certain
percentage of the "swag." In the case of
the recent Clermont county, O., robbery, at
Batavia, the combination was given to the
thieves by an outsider, well known to Hilde
