ries on that question. We are glad to see,
however, that he recognizes the inevitable.
It is the first Btep towards submitting to it.
THIS is the sort of man the United States
has for a commissioner of agriculture: Con
versing with the present and the former vice
consul of Norway and Sweden in Chicago,
night before last, regarding immigration to
the' Northwest, Mr. Le Due said with great
emphasis: "We have had enough emigra
tion the line must be drawn somewhere, and
it ought to be stopped at once. This country
is the heritage of our children and children's
children, and they should build it up. We
have enough of the foreign element here
we want no more of it." This man "repre
sents'* the agricultural interests!
ACCORDING to a Washington dispatch,
army officers dwell with great significance
on recent orders directed to the department
of the Rio Grande, placing the army on a
war footing. The field batteries
have been increased as they are only
when a state of war exists or is
threatened. It is said upon good author
ity that Mackenzie was ordered back from
last raid because the news of his cross
ing became known too soon throughout the
country, whereas it was desired to keep it
secret. It is understood that Mackenzie
was to recross as soon as he could avoid no
tice, and it is believed that he has crossed
again. The GLOBE baa pointed out the
only means by which this whole Mexican
difficulty can be brought to a head in a
manner honorable to our governmentby
inaugurating a system of reprisals. Secret
expeditions across the border will only
place our government in an unenviable
light before the public at home and abroad,
and forfeit for it any claim for sympathy.
Let us have a more manly, straightforward
policy towards Mexico. We cannot afford
to adopt a policy now that might compro
mise us in case war should arise.
THKEE millions ot trade dollars are in cir
culation in this country. There are thirty
two millions held abroad, however, which
may come back at any time. Although this
coin is stamped with the government stamp
as one dollar, it has been repudiated by the
government at the instance of Pirate Sher
man, and is, therefore, worth only its bullion
value. The repudiationists are not the Dem
ocrats, it must be remembered, and when a
man receives a trade dollar from a sub
treasury of the government at a hundred
cents, and finds that he has been swindled
out of ten cents, he should blame the Re
publicans for the fraud. Fraudulent Presi
dents and fraudulent coirs are the coinage of
the Republican party only.
B. DONNELLY was nominated for Con
gress in the Third District by the Nationals
yesterday. He accepted only conditionally,
and, unless the Democrats see fit to put him
up also, pledges himself to retire in favor of
any one who can be supported by both or
ganizations. If the Democratic District
Convention adopts a platform similar to
that of the State Convention there should be
no difficulty in uniting on a candidate. If
Mr. Donnelly is not acceptable
he should be taken at his word and
asked to step down in favor of the man who
can produce the necessary union. Wash
bum must and can be beaten, and no per
sonal ambition shouldbe allowed to prevent
BLAINE was a disappointment. Instead of
delivering an address of such a character as
ought to have come from a statesman so
distinguished, he quoted a few facts relative
to the early history of Minnesota from
Fletcher Williams' book, which every school
boy in the State knows by heart, and sup
plemented it by the stereotyped prediction of
future greatness that are applicable to every
locality under the sun. Blaine as a fair ora
tor is a fraud.
A HERO. WITHOUT WORSHIPERS.
Mr. Hayes can hardly feel himself com
plimented by the reception extended to him
by the people of Minnesota yesterday morn
ing. True, the streets were densely crowded
with people of all classes, who stood for
hours in the broiling sun that they might
catch a glance of the man who wears the
honors of the executive of the nation, but
their curiosity appeared to be their only
motive. They did not go to welcome him,
but simply to observe with their own eyes
what manner of man he is. They went to
see the procession and the occasion of it
just as they turn out to see a circus parade.
They looked upon Mr. Hayes with apparent
ly the same feelings as they view the caged
animalsperhaps with a little wonder tinc
tured with awe. The cheers as he rode
through the street standing erect with his
head uncovered were few and feeble. There
was no enthusiasm at his appearance, no
spontaneous outbursts such as have greeted
our former Presidents wherever they have
chanced to travel. Mr. Hayes was looked
upon as a curiosityonly this and nothing
There is a deeper reason for this than is
expressed. Instinctively and often uncon
sciously the public have come to understand
that Mr. Hayes is a Pr?sident in name only
that he holds the-office in direct defiance
of the expressed will of the people, and is
therefore not entitled to the honors usually
accorded by the American people
to their Presidents, They bear him no
personal ill-will, but, endeavor as
they will, they find it impossible to awaken
in their own minds or in the minds of others
any enthusiasm for him. They regard him
as*the representative of the dangerous po
litical idea that returning boards, assisted by
the agencies of corruptionbribery and per
jurycan defeat the declared pnrpose of the
people of the land that a man not elected to
office will be sustained in bis possession
of it by means the most disreputable simply
because of the assistance he can render the
unscrupulous scallawags Who placed, him
there. Someofthe people are convinced
thai Mr. Hayes was privy to the Louisiana
tndiFlorida frauds, and1
the two States were stolen by :th'Repub-
lican parly others preferto believe him per
sonally honest, but regard the circumstance
that he rewarded the ballot-box stuffers and
returning board perjurers and thieves wita.
offices in his gift as suspicious and unwise
conduct. They can hardly separate a knowl
edge of the infamies torn the alacrity with
which the direct actors in them were re
warded. Even those most partial to Mr.
Hayes consider his conduct in' this respect
suspicious and indiscreet if nothing more,
and when he parades our streets in state,
accompanied with all the official and out
ward manifestations of respect from the
civic and military authorities, they cannot
arouse their enthusiasm to such a pitch as
to fling their ready caps in air and shout at
sight of him.
Mr. Hayes' policy has not been such as to
increase the number of his friends or to
build up his party in the West. His sub
servience to the money power at the East,
shown by his fanatic opposition to the re
monetization of silver, and his advocacy of
Sherman's resumption lunacy have demon
strated the narrowness and lack of states
manship of his mind. Then, his civil ser
vice policy has been weak and vacilating.
His famous order No. 1, promulgated with
so great a flourish of trumpets, proved to be
but a rope of sand, and has been more hon
ored in the breach than the observance.
Perhaps Mr. Hayes feels some mortifica
tion at the lack of popular enthusiasm ap
parent wherever he goes. If he does not,
he is more than human. Few men would
take the ride of a half dozen squares that
he did yesterday, and see the thousand pa
tent manifestations of dislike, distrust or
indifference with which he was received by
the people in exchange for the Presidency.
Yet his visit to Minnesota has been a success.
He was invited that he might advertise the
State fair and attract a crowd, and he did it.
It is estimated that more people went to see
IIUTO. than to see Rarus on the previous day.
Certain it is that the gate receipts fully jus
tify the management in bringing him here.
He has been the besi card of the week, and
through him, Rarus, Edwin Forrest, Great
Eastern and the other big attractions, tne
State Agricultural society has been placed
upon a sound financial basis.
DEMOCRATIC St'ATb, COSVENTION.
The Democracy of Minnesota assembled
in State Convention yesterday in this city.
The action was harmonious, wise and pru
dent. The national portion of the Ohio
platform wat?, in the main, adopted, and a
most excellent ticket placed in the field.
.Both platform and ticket are worthy of
support, and form a basis for a campaign
of which the Democracy may
be proud. The temporary pressure
of other matter prevents detailed
comment this morning, but we can safely
say that if the Third district convention,
which meets to-day, acts as wisely and well
as the State convention yesterday, Mr.
Washburn will be defeated. Let the conven
tion to-day bear in mind that there are men
enough in this district opposed to Washburn
to defeat him, if they all concentrate, and
then act accordingly.
A POOR EXCUSE.
It is Considered Better than None by Mr.
Hayes, and is Given for the Removal of
Postmaster Filley, of St. Louis.
ST. LOUIS. Sept. 6.The statement made in some
dispatches, that Postmaster Filley was removed
without cause, is pronounced untrue by the friends
of the administration. It seems Mr. FiUey has re
peatedly violated orders by directly or indirectly con
trolling primaries and conventions, and interfering
with the rights of the people in such organizations,
and intrigues which are directly in opposition to the
policy of the Republican party is represented by the
Missouri State organization. For instance, if he
had been determined to make the campaign on finan
cial issues and caused circulars to be distributed
throughout the State stating such was
not the issue before the people,
but the true issue was as formerly between
North and South and advising Republicans to co
alesce withthe cireenbackers This circular was
signed by the late postmaster at St. Joseph, who
had been removed by the President, but had been
given a position in the St. Louis post office by Filley,
Oharges were preferred against Wm. Filley by citi
zens, and these were placed in the hands of an agent
of the government to investigate. The result, em
bodied in a report which is on tile in Washington was
to sustain the charges upon the report made. This
Is theftretremoval made for violatingthe President's
order, and the prominence of the official shows the
President Intends it shall be an example. The suc
cessor of Filley is Samuel Hays, who is an entirely
different family from that of the President.
Mr. Hayes Interviewed.
The GLOBE representative wished to interview Mr.
Hayes on a few matters in which the public feel an
interest, bat that gentleman begged to be excused,
as his journey had fatigued him greatly. He
thought, however, that the interview of the Chicago
Times, published on Wednesday morning, would
satisfy the GLOBK. From that we extract the follow
For a few minutes the representative of the Times
was alone with the President. An expression of
great relief Bettled upon his excellency's countenance,
and he immediately surrendered himself.
"You wish to interview me, I suppose?" he re
"If yon will allow yourself to be interviewed," re
plied the reporter.
"Well," he continued, smiling pleasantly, and
speaking in a frank and somewhat confidential tone,
"I never allowed myself to be interviewed but once.
Thatwas at Gettysburg, when George Alfred Town
send stole a marcn on me and actually got a fair in
terview without my suspecting what he was after."
"Did he report it correctly?"
"I must say that he did, in the main. He made me
pass some censure on Congress, however, that I have
no recollection of having done. In fact, I don't be
lieve that I could havemade the remarkhe attributed
to me, because I am always very careful. But in all
other respects the report was a fair one, and I have
never de led it, although I am aware that various
parties have attempted to do it for me. None of those
denials ever came from me."
The reporter suggested that Townsend's reputa
tion in the West for veracity was not such as to make
a denial of anything he might say necessary.
"So I have heard," continued Mr. Hayes, "bnt In
this instance he seems to have made an exception.
He told the truth."
"Did he slip up on yon unawares?"
"No I was holding an informal reception, very
similar to the one you have just seen here, and was
busily engaged in conversatihn with a gentleman on
my right, about as I am with yon now, stopping
every few moments to shake hands with some new
arrival. Presently Mr. Townsend came up and
shook hands with me, and I continued the convers
tion with the friend on my right. He joined in the
conversation, and we talked quite freely for some
"Did you not know who and what he was?"
"Certainly I did I had known him for some time.
But, strange as it may seem, during our conversation
it never occurred to me that he was a newspaper
man. If it had, I should not have said as much as
I did bnt sull 1 said nothing that I have ever had
occasion to regret, although I undoubtedly said
many things which I should not have deemed advisa
ble to say had I known that the conversation was to
appear in print. I hav never been interviewed in
Washington. And yet every few days I Bee in the
papers what purports to be an interview with me.
You can always rely upon it that these reports are
manufactured. I always treat newspaper men kind
ly, but invariably decline to express my opinions on
political questions in their presence. And I do this,
not because I have an) thing to conceal,for I do
not believe in having secrets, except in exceptional
cases,bat for the reason that it is not generally

SUCCESS MORE THAN EXPECTED.
A Variety of Detail With Special Men

Again the day opened bright aDd beautifully
bnt threatening to be hot. The weather, as
UBual, is on the "Minneapolis plan" (not
Splan) and the immense multitude enjoyed
themselves greatly. The crowd, owing to
the multitude of attractions at the other end
of the avenue, was not as great as on Wednes
day, bnt still, on a careful estimate, and a
glance at the till, it was found to be,
like the wound of Mercutio, "not so
deep as a well, nor so wide as a
ohurrh door, but 'twas enough'twould do."
A count of the turn-style record and careful es
timates make the number not far from 25.000,
and this, too, with the president (de facto) at
Nearly all the interest of the day centered
about the horse Hopeful, and the desire uni
versally felt and expressed was that he should
beat the Rarus time. The GLOBK report there
fore opens with this interesting feature.
This is the last day but one of the fair, and
has been set aside as ''Minneapolis Day," when
business men and women of the city will
close up their secular affairs and devote the
day to seeing the exposition and visiting with
their brethren and sisters from a distance. It
will be a gala day, got up on the Minneapolis
plan, regardless of expense. Even Charley
Clark will keep good natured to-day, and
smile to the toes of his boots, while Col. King,
if he is not watched closely, will send a com
plimentary direct to the emperor of Russia by
telephone. If there is anything in magnetic
influences even John Splan may for the moment
become a pleasant gentleman.
Let Minneapolis close up with one accord,
stop business, put on a smiling face, take a
dollar in its pocket and give Col. King and the
management an ovation.
The Promise Fulfilled.
It was just glory enough for one day, as John
Splan must have realized at the end ot the sec
ond heat, when Dan Mace and his noble little
gray horse fulfilled the promise of the week
and heat the Rarus' St. Paul time of the day
before. Let's give a little running history of
how it was done:
About 2 o'clock Mr. Mace drove down the
track in front of the grand stand
and the name of the horse and man was
PASSED FROM LIP TO LIP.
When the immense crowd were fully inform
ed that the unpretending little grey was the
world renowned Hopeful, the contestant for the
throne of the king of the tnrf, cheer after
cheer rent the air. After driving coolly half
way down the first quarter Mace came back,
trotting leisurely along the track, and
when in front of the judges'
stand beckoned to Col. King. He complained
somewhat of the condition of the track, as
there was a mud-hole directly in the way, and
said he feared it would interfere somewhat.
The GLOBE man went around to examine for
himself, and discovered the
COMPLAINT TO BE LEGITIMATE,
a bad looking hole being directly in the path
of the horse while hugging the inside close.
"Never mina," said Dan, "we'll do it any-
About 2:30 he came down the track and under
the wire, closely followed by his gallant run
ning mate, "Garryown," making first-rate
time to all appearances. At the defective spot
in the track
THE LITTLE HEBO
made a skip or two, and his friends trembled
for a moment. Bat it was only for a moment.
He caught his feet again in a
twinkling, and from that time
to the close of the heat was steady as the
watches in the hands of the judges.
THE FIRST QUARTER POLE
was made in 8S the second in 1:07%, the
third in 1:41, and the heat in 2:i7%. So far so
good. The effort was to beat the St. Paul time
of Barusthat was the Rubicon to be crossed
at all hazardsand here was Rarus' first heat
beaten by two and a quarter seconds. When
the time was announced from the stand three
rousing cheers and a tiger were given by the
and as Mace and his horse drove back they were
repeated with a will. Then the veteran turf
man drove in the rear of the judges' stand and
turned the horse over to the grooms, while he
sought the stand and asked a little time over
the regulation. It was granted, and about
thirty minutes passed before he was again dis
covered and brought to the front. He came
out smiling, stepping as proudly and defiantly
waa on the track ready to contest for the hon
ors. After driving half round the track and
returning, Mace again came in front of the
stand and announced his readiness. Then he
proceeded up the track to the place
where his running mate was awaiting him and
turned for the
GREATEST FEAT OF HIS CAREER.
He passed under the wire splendidly, and
among the vast multitude assembled there was
nearly absolute silence. As he passed forward
opinions were freely expressed in the judge's
stand that the wind (which was quite strong
from the southwest) would prevent bim from
accomplishing the feat set for him.
He passed the first quarter in :o4, a half Rec
ond above his former heat, and the judges
shook their beads disconsolately. The canBe
of this waa. that Mace, learning by experience,
instead of hugging the inside of the track as
before, and thus risking a break at the mud
hole, drove on the outside to avoid it. The
half mile was reached in 1:07J^a gain of half
a second, the third at 1:40J, and the last at
TWO FOURTEEN AND THREE-FOURTHS.
A slight cheer went up from the grand stand
as the little chief passed under the wire. And,
indeed, the noble fellow did come down the
home stretch in grand style, nostrils distended
and eyea aflame with the excitement of motion
IN THE JUDGES' STAND
all was excitement in a moment.
About twenty persons were in the
stand, and five held watches, between
which there was only the variation of a quar
ter of a second, while three of the five marked
exactly the same time2:14%.
The judges could scarcely contain their en
thusiasm. "Bring on your gallopers!" shouted
Smith, the starter, (calling for the running
rice) "I feel as though I should gallop my
In a moment the board was marked, when
Smith again raised that portly, well-fed voiee
of his and announced the time.
Then waa witnessed a scene of enthusiasm
never before equalled on any track in Minne
sota. The whole DIMS raised to their ieet and
shouted until they were hoarse: "Where's
flarus?" "Trot out John Splan!" "Show us
the boss of the tnrf J" and other expressions of
like character came pouring out of the grand
stand. And John stood below looking around
as though he wanted to charge somebody else a
guarter to see his horse.
was invited up into the judge's stand, intro
duced to the crowd by Col. King, and uncovor
ed that veteran gray head of his as the cheers
and congratulations were poured upon him.
The colonel then in a neat speech preoented to
Daniel a magnificent blanket woven for him
at the North Star woolen mill in this city, and
donated by three or four liberal gentlemen of
In response Dan returned thanks for the
ovation extended to him, saying that he had
come to Minneapolis in good faith determined
to make the best time possible. He had
several difficulties to contend with, but theRe
were happily overcome by the horse, and he was
better pleased than anybody else could be.
Hopeful was not yet king of the turf, but he
(Dan Mace) proposed to stand firmly by
KING, OF MINNEAPOLIS.
More cheers followed, and the grey and his
driver retired to the rear of the
Judge's stand. It was intend
ed to give Hopeful another heat, but
after consultation it was agreed to reserve his
energies for another effort, and it is more than
probable that he will be made the
GREAT FEATURE FOR SATURDAY,
the last day of the fair, and if he slumld happen
to beat the time of Rarus to-day there would
not be a dry eye in the city. Grief! grief! how
badly we should all feel!
It" is well to state that Hopeful
is eleven years old. He iB owned by
Mr. Richmond, of New York, and made his
best time before his Minneapolis surprise in
2:15% on the Cleveland track, the last week in
July. Mr. Mace expected to leave with him
Saturday, but has kindly consented, at Col.
King's solicitation, to remain until Monday,
and make one of the chief attractions on Sat
A GLOBE man interviewed Mr Mace after the
race, and was informed that in the second heat
he took the center of the track all the way
'round. He pronounced the track heavy from
being cut up, and stated that in his judgment
it made a difference of three seconds in his
time. He promises to superintend putting the
track in order before the Saturday race.
A SQUARE DRINK.
Mr." A. W. Richmond, owner of Hopeful,
after" the ovation to his horse, disappeared from
the track for a few moments, anu there soon
after arrived at the Judge's stand a queer
looking casket made of willow and bearing this

They did exactly as he directed and cooled
their coppers with foaming champagne.
One of the finest, if not the very finest, agri
cultural displays in Agricultural Hall is that of
our journalistic friend and altogether good fel
low, Gatchell, otherwise "Huckleberry," of the
Wadena Tribune. Now Gatchell is not one of
those who concludes that he lives in the woods
because he is a denizen of the banana zone of
the Northern Pacific. And so he determined,
with the help of his friends and neighbors, to
astonish the natives of Minneapolis with the
productions of Wadena and surrounding coun
ties. Therefore this enterprising newspaper
granger packed a carpet-bag full of pumpkins
and squashes, and potatoes as big as
pumpkins and squashes, and specimens
of all the cereals of .that neigh
borhood and rushed down to the great
exposition and opened them out at the right ot
the southerly entrance of Agricultural Hail, as
the visitor is proceeding south.

finest locations in Mechanical hall, being di
rectly in front of the visitor as they enter the
the building from the main entrance. This
firm is the leading hardware store in the State,
and their display at the Minneapolis exposition
does them no discredit as such. They have on
exhibition a full assoitment of hardware and
fine cutlery, and, in addition thereto, a
complete and perfeet showing of their mill
furnishing goods. It is hardly necessary to
speak of the display. It. speaks for itself, as
being a complete representation of the stock of
the most enterprising hardware firm in Min
THE STUDKBAKER DISPLAY IMPORTANT TO CAR-
Agricultural Hall is especially graced by
Messrs. Studebakers' grand display of elegant
vehicles. The ladies invariably exclaim, "How
elegant!" when gazing in fascinated fixedness at
the charming form of their carriages, while
farmers wax eulogistic of the firm who can
furnish extra-ironed, double-braced and truss
axle wagons for such a moderate sum. As a
manufacturings firm the Studebakers require
no puff, for their names are in the mouths of
every one acquainted with American manufac
Their stock as now exhibited at the Minne
apolis fair grounds, will not be removed, and
consequently will be sold at a considerable dis
count from the manufactory or eastern prices.
Those wishing to purchase carriages, buggies,
or wagons will find it to their advantage to call
early to-day. Orders will be received or any
information cheerfully imparted by the ever
accommodating and gentlemanly attendants,
or by Mr. A. C. Baird, company's agent, first
stall, Agricultural Hall.
IMPORTANT TO MILLERS.
D. W. Richardson exhibits one of the most
unique and complete wheat-cleaning machines
we have ever seen. The wheat is thoroughly
cleaned from fuzz, ross and chit, and leave*
the machine as bright and clean as the glad eye
of the miller who sees it enter the hopper.
The principle is an entirely new, and we may
say, the only true one, more than ninety-nine
hundrdths of the work being done by the
action of wheat upon wheat, a series of rap
idly-revolving ratchet segments or serrated
plates constantly turning the wheat and rub
bing the kernels together with tremendous
velocitynot so great, however, as to break the
grain. A strong suction carries off all im
purities. No such thing as dirty wheat need
run through the stones with this machine in
use, and we heartily commend it to the public.
The Centennial award exhibit hangs over the
machine in the main hall.
Bishop Whipple's display of curiosities from
the Indian country and the Sandwich Islands
attracts great attention in Agricultural Hall,
and is greatly admired. The GLOBE hopes to
give a list and a fuller description of the dis
play before the fair closes.
Janney Bros., of the hardware andstove repos
itory on Nicollet avenue, between Washington
avenue and Second street, are represented by
a full line of the latest and best patterns of
stoves and ranges,,all of the latest and best
patterns, being in their display. Their special
ties is the Jewel Range for families, manufac-
tured at the Detroit stove works, Detroit,
Michigan. This is rightly named it is
iewel. as the thousands of good wives will say,
that have seen and admired it. Their other
specialties are the Crown Jewel coal stove
(heating) and the Charter Oak cooking stove,
both as standard as a gold dollar.
Those 250 varieties of Russian apples ex
hibited by Thomas Monlton & Co., in Agr
cultural hall, are creating a great deal of talk
among fruit growers. They are entirely new
to the climate, and have never befo been
opogated in the State. Messrs. Monlton &
expect to propogate and sell about fifty of
best varieties durintr the coming year,
would be a good thing for the fruit growers
ndividnally as well as for the State to have
them extensively introduced, as they are the
best adapted to a Minnesota climate of any
We, to-day, took a tramp in the direction of
the farm machinery, which is by no means a
small part of the great agricultural and me
chanical exposition, and upon which there has
been an immense amount of money and labor
expended, in order to have it on a full equality
with the other departments. The vast build
ing, 250 feet long by 40 wide, is crowded and
crowded and over-crowded. Every available
foot is nti.ized, and yet there are car loads of
machinery and implements which cannot, by
any possible contrivance, be inveigled into the
building, and are grouped around the ends
sides and corners in a seeming rivalry, to be
at least in the closest proximity to it.
As we approach the end of the building
nearer the horse sheds, the first thing that
catches our eye is the famous Studebaker wagon,
whose reputation is world-wide, tfhd at the
same time our Bcalp is scraped by the wire
tackling of somebody's hay-fork. Next we see
a polite gentleman exhibiting the Hoosier
drill and feeder, and as we step inRide the
building Christian & Dean's display first at
tracts our attention. They have on exhibition
the Mitchell farm wagon and carriages,
Gipin sulky plow, Keystone sulky rake,
and several other minor machines.
Next in our path comes the Monitor plow
worksexhibition.whose manufactures go all over
the Northwest. Side by side with the Monitor
plows is those of the Minneapolis plow works.
Still advancing, on our right, is the National
patent association of Minneapolis, who exhibit
the wonderful American ditcher. In the center
is Provost's improved wheat dryer, and on the
left stands the Minnesota giain cleaner and
separator, manufactured at Minneapc.Us. Still
further to the left and outside the building
btands the Van Brunt & Barber seeder, exhibit
ed by J. Prayer. Returning to the building
we see a crowd collected around some machine,
and on elbowing our way to the front
we find it to be Avery & Son's combined sulky
and gang plow. The farmers all pronounce it
the best thing out. The Avery & Son's reversi
ble 6ide hill plow was also highly applauded by
the farmers, as well as their breaking and cross
ing plows. The ones to w-e are the ones to
judge. After shattering our shins on numerous
implements and projections, all ot which no
doubt are veiy useful, we limned up to C. W.
Shatto's stand, where are the Champion reaper
and mower and the Champion self-rake, besides
seeders, tanning mills, and piles of other farm
ing furniture. And now we come to something
altogether newF. Peterler's new three-wheeled
harvester, the model of which was completed
only last week. The same gen
tleman is the inventor of a hand
binder which can be attached to any harvest
ing machine. Sitting right beside these ma
chines is another new inventionSmith &
Wood's potato bug catcher, which cleans the
bugs from two rows at a time as fast as a horse
can walk. After various convolutions around
several farming, mill and other paraphernalia,
we stumble on W. H. Jones & Co. These gen
tlemen represent the Marsh harvester and bind
er, Furst & Bradley plow, and Hill sulky plow.
Next we come upon the largest display yet by
any of onr city agents, that of Starkweather,
Hubbard & Co. This firm are Northwestern
agents for the new Seiberhng's Empire com
bined reaper and mower, fast becom
ing a favorite the Adams & French
harvester and binder Wheeler & Wbeelock
self-drop hay rake, and many other smaller
machines. We now make the acquaintance of
Mr. Frank Stewart, who will show you all the
good points of the Willliam Anson Wood's har
vesting machines and Eagle mowers. Climb
ing over the revolving shafting we admire for
a while the St. Paul wire binder, then pass on
to the well known machines of the Minneapolis
Harvester works. The Dewey harvester and
wire binder and Meadow Lark reaper and mow
er are gazed upon us we pass. The Minneapolis
Paper Binder company have on exhibition one
of their machines, the only paper binder on
the grounds. In front of us as we still pass on
are the several harvesting machines of George
Esterly & Son. Beyond is Knauft. Stout &Co.'s
display. They have on their stand one
of Wilber's direct draft Ureka
mowers, which to all appearances
is a very useful and available machine. Again
jumping the shaft we stand beside the Osborne
teapers and self-binding harvester, and a few
6teps below are the Kirby reaper and mower
and the Wheeler reaper and mower all repre
sented by W. G. Sawyers, of this city. Next
as we nearly reach the farther end of the build
ing, we come to what is probably the largest
display on the grounds made by any one firm,
C. Aultman & Co. This fiim manufacture and
have on exhibition the Canton Monitor engine,
which furnishes the power to run one-half the
machines' in the building, the Sweepstakes
thresher, the Buckeye harvester and binder,
the Buckeye mower and reapei, and the Buck
eye mower. All of the machines are manufac
tured by this one house in Canton, Ohio,
and yet they are so well known throughout the
State of Minnesota that no extended mention
need be made. Indeed it is almost sufficient
to Bay that they are manufactured by Ault
man & Co.. Canton, Ohio, a house established
in 1850 by the same men who are to-day at the
head and front of all implement manufacturers
in the world. The ease and perfect manner
with which these machines do the work for
which they are severally intended is only
equalled by the easy manner in which they gain
the first premums and awards at all places where
they are exhibited. They are sold on their merits
and warranted to do the work for which they
are intended. The engine is the center of a
crowd of admiring spectators, and the Buckeye
binder as well as the Buckeye table rake are
not without their share. *Fhe best I have
seen" is the universal verdict on these ma
chines. We have now reached the end of the
building, with the exception of the threshing
machines which stand in a row on the left side.
Nearest the end stands the above mentioned
Sweepstake thresher, while beside it are two of
J. I. Case & Co'.s threshers, and a Buffalo Pitts
thresher. Just outside the building on the
same side and parallel with it is the Seroour,
Sabin & Co. steam thresher, manufactured in
Near to this stands the Randolph Header,
manufactured by Craver & Steele, Grinnell,
Iowa, and the Northwestern rotary gang plow,
and over between the cattle sheds is erected
the Hazen wind mill, manufactured in this city
by L. M. Crandall. On the opposite side of
the building, next to the race course, are
numerous gates, wind-mills, etc., etc., which
detain the crowd as they pass back towards the
Now, you have been all through it, and those
who have not been fortunate enough to see it
for themselves, must imagine it as best they
can. Our readers must not forget that nearly
all these machines are in motion,
threshers humming, harvesters and bind
ers clattering, mowers rattling, fanning mills
jerking, and scores of other things raising such
a din that it strikes one as something remarka
bly unusual. Surely no one can behold this
vast display without being assured within
himself that Minnesota never before saw such
a magnificent array, and that the future of her
agricultural interests never before looked so
bright and promising.
The grand stand was not so full as upon the pre
vious day but an immense audience, attracted by the
desire to see Hopeful gathered early and filled the
