A Judgment for $43,474,65 Rendered
Against Them, and the Sheriff Takes Pos
Yesterday in' the district court, before
Judge Wilkin, an important suit was decided
and judgment rendered. Fast upon this
phase of the legal affair followed a writ of
execution, and in sequence, the sheriff made
a levy upon the stock in store held by the
debtors. All the niceties "of detail
were completed yesterday afternoon, and
a custodian was placed in charge of the
stock. The winds took the matter up and
through the clear, crisp atmosphere of last
night whispered to a GLOBE man that some
thing was up. It behooved the GLOBE to
know how high up it was, and whether his
pole could knock down the peisimmons.
The result of the investigation was as fol
Yesterday Hanauer, Lichtenauer & Co.,
wholesale clothing merchants, Nos. 108 and
110 East Third street, appeared by attorney
in the district court and confessed judge
ment in the amount of $42,474.65. The
creditors were S. Mann,Austrian/Wise &Co.,
of New York. Messrs. Davis, O'Brien and
Wilson were attorneys for the plaintiffs. The
action instituted by the New York firm
was to recover an overdue paper. The St.
Paul house being informed of the suit, were
unable to meet it by payment, and concluded
to do the best thing under the circum
stances, confess judgment in favor of their
largest creditors. Hanauer, Lichtenauer &
Co.'s stock was levied upon to satisfy the
judgment, and it is estimated that the stock
store will amount to about $65,000 to
$70,000. Further developments in the af
fair will be made to-day.
The Coining Convention.
The lake towns are alive to the importance
of the improvement convention to be held
heio on the 18th mst. lion. H. M. Kice is
in receipt, daily, of assurances that the at
tendance will be large. Almost all the cities
and towns on the great lakes interested in
commerce have signified their intention of
paiticipatmg in the deliberations of the con
vention. Many have taken action by ap
pointing a legular number of delegates
others will be repiesented by prominent
business men individually interested in the
traffic on the lakes.
The Maiquette Mining Journal, of the
30th ult., says:
A meeting was held at the office of the
Republic Iron company yesterday after
noon for the pmpose of appointing delegates
to attend the Improvement convention to be
held at St. Paul on the 18th inst. David
Morgan, Psq., presided, and Samuel Schoch,
Esq., acted as secretary. The following gen
tlemen were appointed delegates:
Hiram A. Buit, Edward Breitung, David
Morgan, James P. Pendill, C. J. Osburn, A.
P. Swmefoid, Samuel Schoch, Wm. E. Dick
Of the objects of the convention and tbe
necessity of the upper peninsular being ably
represented therein, the Mining Journal
will have something to say heioafter.
The foregoing delegation is selected from
the foremost business men of Maiquette,
and will ably repiesent their locality the
convention. Similar action is being taken
all through the mining region of Michigan.
Superior City has appointed a large and able
delegation, and they "will bem attendance.
The invitation extended by the committee,
Hon. H. M. Rice and others, is a general
one to all localities interested. The promise
is held foith that the convention will be a
Clobinjr Session of the Noimal School,
The noimal school boaid met again yes
terday morning at eight o'clock, in the offices
of the State supenntendent of instruction.
There was very little business left for the
board to transaat as they had been in ses
sion the whole piavious day from 10 o'clock
in the morning till 11 o'clock at night.
After auditing some accounts, a general
discussion of educational matters ensued.
The meethod of keeping accounts and
making monthly leturns to the State auditor,
was talked over at considerable length, Mr.
Simpson explaining the leqmrements of the
law and the suggestions of Publio
Examiner Knox. Mr. Pilcher,
of Mankato, was very firm in his determina
tion liot to duplicate his accounts and gener
alize them under various heads. If he had
to do it, he would hue a bookkeeper to do it
for him. He did not think the State should
expect woik of an honoiaiy officer equal to
that of a hard worked bookkeeper. Mr.
Simpson vainly tried to show that it was just
as easy and took no more 'time to keep the
accounts the way suggested by Mr. Knox,
than the method pursued by the treasurers
at the present time.
The president stated that he was not pre
pared to appoint the visiting committee, but
would do so at the earliest moment and an
nounce them in the public press. This
brought the semi-annual meeting of the nor
mal school boaid to a close.
The superintendent, principals and assist
ant principals of the public schools held a
meeting at the high school, yesterday. The
object was to consult and advise upon what
studies to take up at the next term of the
school, after the holiday vacation. Much in
terest and earnestness in the proposed work
was evinced. A definite conclusion was
reached, but the GLOBE will not mar the hol
idays for the pupils by giving the
appalling array of what they are
expected to learn after the merry Christmas
times. The meeting was of much importance
to the teachers, and a large number were in
Among other matters discussed was the
dismissal of the schools for the holidays. A
vacation of two weeks will be given, begin
ning the Friday before Christmas.
The superintendent and teachers being
brought together considerable discussion
over school matters in general took place.
All were in accoid in the belief that the term
so far had been alike encouraging to teachers
and Bcholais. The latter have been gener
ally obedient and studious the former,ad
vised and helped by the superintendent, have
been constant and indefatigable in their
laborious duties. Altogether the public
schools of St. Paul aie in a flourishing con
dition and parents can congratulate them
selves in being able to entrust their children
to so able and zealous a corps of instructors.
English Opera To-Night.
Marie Roze-Mapleson comes to us indorsed
by all the musical and dramatic critics of
note, both of this country and Europe. To
night so many as can be crowded into the
Opera House will have the opportunity of
judging if such netices as the following do
justice to her charms of person and voice.
Marie Roze has a splendid Btage presence, a
fine phisique, and a personal magnetism that is
certain to have its effect upon an audience. In
appearance she reminds one of Parepa, and
there is a strong analogy between her tones and
those of Parepa's voice. Mane Roze's voice is
a soprano very dramatic in quality, unusually
rich, round and mellow in the timbre and with
large volume. I very flexible and sympa
thetic, never failing to awaken emotions in the
minds of her hearers. This the great charm
of her vocalization. He notes are perfect and
call to mind very appropriate metaphor-a
flow of liquid notes. As a tragic actress
Marie Rose ranks high. I ever^citywhere

THROUGH TO WINNIPEG.
The First Through Passenger Train Left St.
Paul last Night
The GLOBB has already mentioned the
presence in the city of Messrs. J. Upper and
H. B. Willis, contractors of the Pembina
branch of the Canadian Pacific railway, to
make arrangements for operating the line,
now that they have it so far completed that
trains may be run through to Winnipeg, or
rather to St. Boniface, opposite Winnipeg.
Under their contract, these gentlemen had
until December next to com
plete the line. Having, however, by
extraordinary efforts and a large expenditure
of means over what would otherwise be re
quired,'made the connection with the St.
Paul & Pacific extension at St. Vincent, they
desire to follow up their good work by giving
the people of Winnipeg, and Manitoba gen
erally, tbe outlet and inlet so anxiously de
sired by that people. With this purpose in
view Messrs. Upper & Willis yesterday made
running arrangements with the St. Paul &
Pacific company by which a tram for pas
sengers and express matter running through
to Winnipeg has been put on.
Under this arrangement passen
gers and express matter for Win
nipeg left St. Paul last evening by
the through St. Paul & Pacific main line
tram for Breckenridge, Crookston, Fisher's
Landing and St. Vincent at 5 o'clock. This
train reaches St. Vincent about 7 o'clock next
evening, when the construction engine of
Messrs. Upper & Millis is attached to the
necessary cais and run through direct to St
Boniface, arriviving between 11 and 12
o'clock at night, the time for the sixty-three
miles being about four hours. Returning,
the train will leave St. Boniface at 4 A. M.,
reach St. Vincent about 8 A. at., and St. Paul
the next morning at 10:42 o'clock.
As said above, this is but a temporary ar
rangement, made with a view to' give the
people of Manitoba, the earliest possible le
alization of some of the benefits looked for
ward to as the result of the connection made
by the completion of this link, and will only
continue in force until full details for con
ducting the through business can be arrang
ed between the diffeient parties in interest.
These negotiations are understood to be pro
gressing satisfactorily. In the meantime,
thanks to Messis. Upper & Willis, parties
desiring can have themselves ticketed right
through, all lail, to Winnipeg, and vice versa,
from Winnipeg to St. Paul.
J- COMING ENTERTAINMENT.
Wherein "Off the Stage" W i 1 Appear
The colored diamatic club of this city,
which has already given several most credit
able entertainments for the benefit of wor
thy objects, is now lehearsing for an enter
tainment to be given some evening of holi
day week for the benefit of the colored M.
E. church, on which occasion the club cor
dially expects to far surpass any previous
effort. With the author's permission the
club will on this occasion produce the spark
ling new comedy entitled "Off the Stage,"
by Sidney Rosenfeld, of New York. The
play contains six characters, three ladies and
three gentlemen, and is full of interesting
situations, as will be seen by the following
"Geo. Jordon and Helen, his Bister, have
both advertised, one for a matrimonial, the
other for a theatrical engagement. Neither
knows of the other's advertisement, though
both have adveitised in the same paper. Brass,
d,n eccentric theatucal agent, comes answer
to Helen's advertisement, but Helen having
advertised ovei the name George, the latter
encountered Brass and a veiy comical scene
ensues. Mr. Jordon, the father, a vain old
widower, is love with CJannda Hastings, an
old schoolmate of Helen's. Claiinda comes to
tell Helen of the fun she expects to have from
having answered a matrimonial advertisement
in the Herald. Th advertiser, of course,
was George and very ludicrous love scenes fol
low between Clarinda, father and son. Helen,
who is dying to go on the stage, dosen't succeed
in her plans, but Brass, who has a fortune left
him, finally marries her. Lucy, the maid,
serves as an element or general confusion.
Bi ass is constantly and mysteriously intermin
gled with the affairs of the dthers."
A side splitting farce will also be present
ed, in which two gentlemen of Minneapolis
will appear duetts, character comic songs,
etc., being interspersed throughout the plays,
to add to the attractions.
Took an Overcoat.
Thursday evening Charles Dufrene sat
himself down to supper at his boarding
house, Gross', on Fort street. He got
through with his meal in the usual American
stylein short order. He repaired to the
hall to put on his overcoat. No overcoat
there, it was gone from his own particular
peg. A shiver went through him at the
prospect of a winter without a Benjamin.
He suddenly remembered that a fellow board
er named J. H. Piatt alias McParlen had
gotten away with his supper more expedi
tiously than any one elsemay be he had
gotten away with the coat. Yesterday, Du
frene met McParlen and taxed him with the
theft. He denied it, of course. Dufrene was
so certain, that he got Detective Bresett to
arrest the man. When he came to the sta
tion, Capt. Clark interviewed him. McPar
len said he was a chambermaid in Webb's
Metropolitan stables, andand finally con
fessed he took the coat, and it would be
found at Prescott's pawn-shop.
It was found there. McParlen had traded
it off for another overcoat and 50 cents to
boot. The coat was restored to its rightful
owner, and Prescotfc is out 50 cents for not
being particular in his enquiries.
Wanted Her "White Alley."j
A middle aged woman came into police
headquarters yesterday. She said her name
was Caroline Ballshe is a black-ball. She
had a young "yaller skinned" daughter, who
had been kind of wild, and the city had sent
her to the House of the Good Shepherd.
Mrs. Ball presumed her gal had become a
"white alley" by this time, and she wanted
her out. Mrs. Ball stated that she had
bounded up that way, but the sisters had
said the girl wasn't there. She knew better
than that, and begged the police to do some

The New Branches of the Winona & St
Peter Railroad-Length, Country Tapped,
Local Aid Extended, Etc.
The Winona Republican improved the
opportunity furnished by the railroad cele
bration at Bochester Wednesday to give
some interesting data of the three branch
roads or feeders of the Winona & St. Peter
road, constructed this season, and of which
brief mention was made in the GLOBE gen
eral review of the railroad building of the
season in the State, published Monday." The
"The present year has been an eventful
one in the history of Southern Minnesota,
and witnesses a material development of the
interests of this section. The branch lines
of the Winona & St. Peter railroad, con
structed under the management cf the Chi
cago & Northwestern Railroad company,
bring a large tract of rich territory into im
mediate communication with this important
trunk line, and reaches many flourishing
towns that have been working vainly for
years to get an outlet by rail.
THE CHATFIELD BRANCH.
One of the most important feeders is the
Chatfield branch, running from Chatfield,
Fillmore county, and connecting with the
main line at Eyota junctionabout one mile
west of Eyotadistant twelve miles. The
line received some aid from the towns.
Chatfield gave $35,000: Elmira, $10,000
Chatfield has a population of about 2,000
people, and is known as one of the most
prosperous and wealthiest places in this sec
tion of the State. Mr. E. Edwards, a resi
dent of Chatfield for several years, is the
agent of the railroad company. The road,
for a new one, is said to be in unusually
good condition. The new depot is in course
of completion, and the enterprising people
of Chatfield are supremely happy that their
long-wished-for desire for a railroad is at
THE PLAHSVrEW BEANCH.
An arm of the Winona & St. Peter road
stretching out from Eyota Junction to Plain
view, a distance of about sixteen miles, forms
the Plainview Branch, running through
Elgin, Douglas and Viola into Wabashaw
county and culminating at Plamview, which
is the center of a rich farming and grain
growing country. This branch with the
Chatfield Branchit will be seenform
really a continuouous line between Plainview
and Chatfield. Local aid was voted quite
liberally for the Plainview Branch. Plam
view voted a bonus of $50,000 Elgin, $40,-
000 Viola, $10,000. Plainview has a popu
lation of about 1,000 people probably a lit
tle over that possesses a fine class of thufty
people, and is emphatically a growing town.
It is distant by rail about fifty-two miles
from Winona. The new railroad was opened
about the middle of October. Mr. Lee Neill
is the agent.
BOOHESTEE AND NOTHEBN BBANCH.
ffhe rich country about Zumbrota, Pine
Island, and Goodhue county in general has
long been looked upon by the Chicago &
Northwestern company as offering good in
ducements for a railroad, and has finally re
sulted in the construction of the bianch
from Bochester to Zumbrota, a dis
tance of about twenty-five miles. Towaid
this enterprise Bochester gave her bonds for
$30,000, Zumbrota for $20,000, and Pine
Island for about $20,000. The road was
finished about the 20th of October. Zum
brota, the present terminal point, has a pop
ulation of 1,000 in the village, but the people
in the township would number probablv
1,500. The town is lively and is going
ahead well. It has excited considerable ri
valry among the railroads, the Midland nar
row-gauge from Wabashaw having reached
Zumbrota in June last. It is estimated that
1,000,000 bushels of wheat are annually re
ceived at that market.J'
THE EFFECT BOOHESTEE.
Of the effect of this railroad construction,
and the appearance of the city of Bochester,
the Republican says:
"A difference of opinion exists amon the
Bochester people as to the effect of the "new
branch railrcads on the business of that city.
The new stations on all sides draw off a vast
amount of the grain trade that formerly
brought farmers into the city, but whose
trading is now mainly done at stores nearer
home. Some take a gloomy view of the
situation and think that Rochester voted aid
to kill ber own business, and
the 4th inst. celebrated her
funeral. Othersmen of
judgmentthink that compensating advan
tages will accrue in the enlarged character of
the business which the Rochester merchants
will hereafter transact. Still others are lib
eral enough to view the construction of the
branch railroads as the natural outgrowth of
the country in general, and that no one city
may expect to always be the favored locality
in respect to railroad facilities. The con
struction of the roads, they argue, will no
wise affect the advantages that have thus far
wrought the prosperity of Rochester.
There are many evd'ences of thrift in
Rochester that stnko the eye of the occa
sional visitor, and pioduce the impression
that the city is keeping steady pace with her
sister cities of the State in all that contrib
utes to solid and endming prosperity. She
is blessed with a class of citizens noted alike
for enterprise, intelligence, public spirit and
wealth a press indefatigable in her inter
ests, and a tributary country well high inex
haustible in its abundant agricultural re
sources. As one of the speakers well
remarked, she is emphatically the Queen
City of the Zumbro valley."
