been bold about it they had driven up in a
wagon, loaded the wagon and driven
away. Th tracks were plainly
visible, ^and from this due
a pursuit was taken up after the thieves.
Mr. Brigham's son mounted a horse and fol
lowed the trail. Th pursuit brought him to
the doors of Hamm's brewery on Pha
len's creek, corner of Minnehaha street.
Inquiries there elicited the information that
two men had just sold seventy-five bushels of
wheat to the brewery. They had just con
cluded the bargain, received the money, and
departed in the direction of Stillwater. Both

them to justice. Such an accurate descrip

Donnelly addressed a large crowd of citizens
in this place, and received the most enthu
siastic applause. I would like to have you
for a few days up here, so you may get an
id^a of the enthusiasm that prevails here
amongst the farmei-s of Stearns, Todd and
Douglas counties. I have been traveling
for two weeks around the3e counties. I was

Resume of the Situation.
[Special Correspondence of the Globe.]
CAMSBTDQE, Oct. 23,1878.In my previ
ous letters I have spoken particularly of the
feeling of the farmers on the grade and
weight of wheat, but in this I propose to
speak especially of the feeling throughout
the district respecting the Greenback issue
and the election of Mr. Donnelly to Con
gress. As I have been with him constantly,
I consider myself competent to express an
opinion of his election, and of the causes
operating to produce that result. Mr. Don
nelly has spoken at Long Prairie, Wyazata,
Delano, Howard Lake, Morris, Dassel, Lac
qui Parle, Hancock, Donnelly Station, Her
man, Alexandria, Sauk Centre, Melrose, Clear
water, St. Cloud, El River, Princeton,
Spencer Brook and Cambridge, and at all of
these places he has has most excellent audi
At Delano, the floor gave way under the
pressure of the great crowd, and he had to
address his audience in the depot.
At Howard Lake, although a strong Re
publican point, he had a good audience.
At Morris, a large one, so large that the
chairman was obliged to suppress applause,
feaung the floor would give way.
At Dassel, an excellent audience, exceed
ingly enthusiastic, and very anxious to learn
of the great and coming issuethe green
At Lao qu i Parle, women with children,
and men came eighteen and twenty miles,
and the room was packed, and although the
speaker occupied nearly three hours in his
speech, yet the people did not stir,
but wanted more. I have been
in many political campaigns, but
I have never seen a more thoroughly arous
ed audience than that at Lao qui Parle.
At Hancock the same scene was repeated
house full, and people tully aroused.
At Alexandiia, although a terrific storm
raged, Mr. Donnelly was received with boom
of cannon, and many trudged through
that storm fifteen miles to hear him. I was
a perfect ovation on the part of his hearers,
and as the storm grew wifder outside, the
feeling cf the audience grew moie intense
At Donnelly station, among his farmer
neighbors, it was a pleasant, plain, honest
talk, and left its impress behind.
At Herman the audience was good.
At Sauk Center the large hall was filled,
there being not less than 400 persons pres
ent. Hi speech was received with great
demonstrations of delight, and after the
meeting, a number of staunch Republ cans
came to the writer, and declared their inten
tions to vote for Mr. Donnelly. They were
tired of the old order of things, and were
going in for the new party.
The Melrose meeting brought farmers
many miles to hear the next member of Con
gress from the Third district, and the room
At St. Cloud, bonfires blazed and avil
rent the rair, to tell the people that
Donnelly was coming. Th court house was
literally packed, and many could not get near
the door. Fully 500 people listened atten
tively for nearly three hours to Mr. Donnelly,
and went away impressed with what he-had
said, not only upon the Gieenback question,
but upon that other oveishadowing
issuethe rascaUty of the wheat
ring. Th meeting at Clearwater was held

At Princeton the large hall was literally
crammed and at least 100 people could not
get in. I was a grand meeting, bubbling
all over with enthusiasm, and many hitherto
strong Republicans will vote for the Green
back candidate on the 5th of November. As
evidence of the feeling of this meeting, I
would say that I obtained twenty-four sub
scribers for the DATJCX GLOBE as fast as I
could take names, and many of them are old
At Spencer Brook the school house was
comfortably filled, the meeting being held in
the daytime, and farmers came several miles
to be present.

ring, repeatedly called out the applause of
the house, while the discussion of the green
back question elicited deep interest.
I tell the friends of the cause that the peo
ple are aroused, and with proper effort Mr.
Donnelly will surely be elected to Congress.
There is no wiping this out. O the main
line of the St. Paul & Pacific road the feeling
on the wheat question is simply intense.
Farmers swear they will not vote for Bill
Washburn, who is a party to the steal, while
those not engaged in the wheat business are
convinced that the only way to relieve us of
these oppressive and disastrous hard times
is to make a change.
There is a deep-seated, earnest conviction
among the people, that the principles of the
Greenback party must prevail before this
country can be lifted out of its present dis
tressed condition to that of prosperity.
Why, at Minneapolis, at the Wilbur house,
Mr. Smith, of Spencer Brook,who was pres
ent, informs me that there were twenty
seven farmers present, and they agreed to
take a vote on the Congressional candidates,
resulting in 23 for Donnelly and 4 for Wash

who voted for Washburn have concluded to
go tor Donnelly. Now, Mr Smith avers
that this is the fact, as passing under his

Thi Annual Record of the Doings of the
Quartermaster General Meigs has com
pleted his annual report to the secretary of
war. I contains a large amount of statis
tical information, and makes several recom
The total requisitions from his office dur
ing the fiscal year ended Ju ne 30 lasi,
amounted to 512,792,003. Th department
moved during the year 79,260 passengers,
11,400 beasts, and 109,261 tons of military
material. Th Indian disturbances and
labor riots in May made tho presence of con
siderable bodies of troops necessary in dif
ferent places and the smallness of the army
made extensive and expensive movements
necessary in order to have sufficient force at
the threatened points. Marches of from
800 to 1,000 miles were common, and there
were several of 1,800 miles, two of 3,000, and
one of 4,300 miles.
The largest carriage of troops was done by
the Pacific railroads, and the appropria ion
for transportation was not large enough to
liquidate their accounts. Gen. Meigs there
fore recommends that Congress should make
a deficiency appropriation of 825,000 to
settle the accounts for the last year's service.
The several Pacific railroads have earned by
military transportation during the fiscal year
1)895,000. Their total earnings for this ser
vice have amounted to over 9,000,000.
Seventy contracts were made duiing the
year for transportation by teams, and 76,559
tons of supplies were transported in this
manner. Thirty-three thousand and eight
passengers and 56,000 tons of stores were
moved by water. Ths cost of transportation
on the Upper Missouri to supply the posts
in ta Sioux country continues great com
pelling incieases of rates. Th rate is
diminishing from year to year, but the sup
plies needed continually increase, though a
cessation of the incieas3 is expected before
many years, with the establishment of com
munities able to protect themselves against
The department bought 2,251 horses and
mules during the year, at an average cost of
$117 for the former and $130 for the latter.
There were 11,375 horses and 9,688 mules in
the army on the 30th of June, and the forage
consumed was as follows: 892,000 bushels of
corn, 1,100,000 bushels of oats, 136,000
bushels barley, 37,000 tons of hay and 2,-
500 tons of straw.
The work of investigating claims for quar
termasters, stores supplied during the war of
the rebellion has been resumed under the
act of July 4,1864, and the appropriation of
last November, and 2,222 claims were dis
posed of during tho fiscal year. Of these
there were 1,355 (claiming $1,741,197) total
ly rejected, and those which were allowed
were reduced in amount from $682,776 to
$355,084. There remained on file, June 30,
11,670 more of such claims, aggregating $5,-
960,172. The average cost of investigating
the claims disposed of was about $30 each.
I addition to these claims (which originated
in the border States), and irrespective of
many thousand claims, there are about
twelve thousand unsettled claims on file,
calling for about $7,000,000, not affected by
the act of July 4, 1864, which requires proof
of loyalty, etc.

Thrilling Experience of the Mate of the
Schooner Stimson, Lost on 2CantucTict
[New York Special to Chicago Times.J
Among the vessels wrecked in the storm of
the 12fch inst. wa3 the schooner Etta V. Stim
son, which went to pieces on the dread Nan
tucket shoals. The mate, Mr. Charles Kil
leen, alone survived, and the following sad
story is from his own lips: "At 8 p. M. the
ves*sel, having struck and rolled over, the
second sea which boarded U3 swept away two
of the men. Th rest hung on until about
5 o'clock in the morning, when they began
to go. Th man on my right became a rav
ing manhc, and soon succumbed, the rest
following soon after, leaving Capt. Hart and
wife and myself still clinging. Th sea was
washing over us to the height of ten or fif
teen feet continually, and as it dashed
against us it seemed as if it would dash us to
pieces. Early on Sunday morning we saw
the steamers Martha's Vineyard and Dexter
come out, but when we perceived
we were not to bo rescued by the steamers,
Mrs. Hart became discouraged and soon after
gave up slipping from our grasp about 2 p.
M., at which time she was about drawing her
last breath. Th sea was washing by us at
the time waist deep. The loss of his wife
completely unnerved Capt. Hart, who turned
to me and shook my hand, saying, after I
had tried to console him and get him to hold
on longer, "I can't do it you may, you're
a tough man I don't care now whether I
live or die." gave me his ring and some
money, with the request that if I was saved
I would send it to his parents, and then
handed me his watch, asking me to keep it
as a momento. At 9 p. at. on Sunday even
ing he was wandering in his mind, and I was
obliged to lash him to keep him from going
overboard. About 2 o'clock on Monday
morning he died, with his head resting on
my knee. I secured his body, and stood up
awaiting events. feelings through all
this trying ordeal were far from pleasant,
but something seemed to impress me that I
was to be saved, and throughout I did not
despair in the least. My signal was seen by
a party in a boat from Edgartown, and was
taken off. The boat was too small to take
off the captain's body too, but we afterward
returned in a whale-boat and took it from
the vessel. I was afterward transferred to
the River Queen, and arrived home on Mon
day. Tl'he many little events of my expe
rience are too numerous to mention in $-

whole time I cannot find words to express.

was won by the steadiness of the federal
troops, who had learned to stand where they
were stuck, each corps returning battle man

learned that fashion under my tuition.

"General, I remember the saying that
Hooker was always on time opening a battle,
as at Antietam, when, as they were looking
at their watches, on the stroke of seven,
your canon smote the morning."
I was ordered by General McClellan to
move my troops across the Antietam, and
when I got them over and in motion, and
rode back and reported it to McClellan for
his final orders, he said: 'Thank God,
there is one corps in this army that does
march without excuses, and at the appointed
time,' and I quote that remark, in McClel

army of tho Potomac did not exist as an
obedient thing when McClellan left it, and
when I gave it up to Meade it stood corps
by corps at Gettysburg. I took it crude and
