For the present it is said the trains run will be
first class in every respect, will run throueh
without change and will make fast time. It
ie evident Commodore Davikson's fast packet
scheme, inagurated by|bnnging out the flying
Gem City, has stirred up the railroad "men
and will lead to lively competition an i increase
of travel and traffic along the river.
Abroad on the Prairie in his Sight Sliirt.
At about 4 o'clock yesterday a. m., when the
Omahaexprees due in St.Paul at 10:55 was about
to move out from BiDgham Lake 6tatlon, a
freight engine pulling in from a side track
ran into the sleeping coach with considerable
force and with noise enough to make the
passengers, who were startled Irom sleep by
the shock, imagine their car was being
crushed, and there was for a minute a scene of
confusion in the car. Nearly every one leaped
from his berth and a number rushed to the
front platform. Among these was his grace,
the young Duke of Athole and who, with
tome Manchester friends, was on his way to
St. Paul from the West, having taken passage
at Omaha. The Duke leaped from the car to
the ground and before he had recovered him
self, word having been passed that the
far was all right, the express train pulled
out for St. Paul, leaving his grace in his
night costume, standing on the prairie ex
j^osed to what a true Briton most abhors, a
draught of air, which might perhaps be
traced all the way over the plains to gome
]>ass of the Rocky mountains. This morn
ing breeze fluttered his grace's ungraceful
garment, and cooled his limbs and head as
he watched the tram rolling away. The
rthers had quickly hid from each other's gaze
by retreating to their berths about as hastily
as they came out from them, and the duke
Lad not been missed, when at Mountain Lake,
the next station, a dispatch came to
the conductor .equesting that the duke's
clothes to be left at Mountain lake and saying
he would follow his friends to St. Paul by the
next passenger train. The party came on and
the duke, whose clothes were left for him, ar
rived last evening. Since no harm came of
the accident people will laugh at the predica
ment in which our distinguished visitor was
left at Bingham Lake.
St. Locis, July I.— The Iron Mountain rail
way having declined to take freights to points
in Texas on the Texas & St. Louis narrow
guage road, except at full rates, to Texarkana,
the point of connection of the two roads, Col.
Paramour, president of the Texas & St. Louis
road, has issued orders to his general freight
and passenger agents to reduce passenger fares
to three cents per mile, and make such freight
rates as will secure the business between com
peting point?. It looks as though the war
was to be a bitter one. It crows out of the
fact that the Texas & St. Louis is extending
its line to Texarkana from St. Louis through
Arkansas, on a route parallel to the Iron
Mountain, which will make it a competing
road for all St. Louis and Texas business.
Second Trip of the Gem City.
Commodore Davidson's magnificent steam
er, Gem City, arrived at the levee last evening
at 8:20 o'clock, concluding her second trip
from St. Louis to St. Paul. Commodore
Davidson was in command, and held his post
on the pilot house throughout the trip. The
Gem City brought a full line of passengers,
all of the staterooms being occupied, mostly
by people from the South, who come to Min
nesota to spend the summer months. There
was also a large load of freight, the steamer
being loaded almost to the guards. She
steamed up to the levee in grand style, and
was received by a large crowd of citizens.
The Gem City was due here at noon yester
day. Delays were caused by the frequent
landings she was required to make, at each of
which she was compelled to take on heavy in
voices of freight. She made in all sixty land
ings between St. Louis and St. Paul, at all of
which she took on or unloaded freight or pas
sengers. These frequent stoppages necessari
ly slowed the time for the entire trip It was,
as the commodore expressed it, "a dragging
trip throughout," but the passengers with
one accord pronounced it a most delightful
journey, in the course of which everything
possible was done to make them comfortable
and their trip in every way luiurious.
The machinery of the Gem City worked to a
charm throughout the trip, and not the
slightest accident occurred to alarm anyone
on board. It was the unanimous opinion of
all that a more perfect running boat never
traversed the waters of the Mississippi river.
After unloadihg her cargo at the levee in
this city, the Gem City left at about 10:30 p.
m. on her down river trip, Commodore David
son still retaining command. She took on a
large number of passengers but little
freight at this point.
The vessel left St. Paul Friday evening,
June 24, and on her trip down made sixty
eight landings, taking in freight and passen
gers, and.too.distributing passengers here aud
there. The weather on the down trip was all
that could be desired. On Sunday Commo
dore Davidson made preparation for a religious
service for the crew, giving the swarthy roust
abouts and coal heavers and waiters the first
places, and the passengers falling in within
the "sanctuary" as well as they could. The
Commodore opened the services by an expla
nation of this new departure, saying that he
wanted his crew, high and low, to fc'el that the
services cf each and every one were essential
to the safety of the passengers ana vessel, and
he wanted each and every one to feel first his
responsibility to God, and|then to his fellow?,
and then to the fcafetv of ihe rerael and the
prosperity of the weekly line of tirst-class
boata from St. Paul to St. Louis. He urged
one and all to be watchful, faithful and civil.
He said it did not hurt him to be civil to any
one who may ask him an important or unim
portant question. He closed by offering the
crew a bibie, which they would receive at the
clerk's desk when they called for their money
it the end of the voyage.
The commodore anounced that he would
hold service every Sunday, but when he could
have a minister of any of the denominations
he would invite them to take part in the ser
nces, and having Rev. H. II Cole, D. D., a
learned and eloquent gentleman of New York
:ity, and so he would call upon him to
iddress the crew. The reverend gentleman
3poke for thirty minutes on individual respon
sibility, urging his hearers to be faithful in
the discharge of their duties, be they whit
they may. Dr. Cole was listened to with
marked attention, and closed by reading a
livmn, which he requested his audience to
join in singing.
The commodore again took the platform,
further urged his hearers to be faithful
and support him in his discipline, which he
meant to be firm in the right, without an oath
or blasphemy of smy kind.
The commodore's staff is particularly valu
able in each part and harmonious as a whole.
The first clerk is Mr. Hatcher, who has been
with the commodore for six and twenty years,
Mr. Hatcher ispeculiurly fitted for his post by
an unfailing fund of good humor and tact and
intelligence, and never tires in caring for and
anticipating the want* and whims of the pas
sengers. The first steward is E. B. Buckley,
who has had years of experi
ence on the river, and who it is said
never had a man or woman hungry on his
boat but once, and that was when the passen
ger got on board. After that the passenger
was never allowed to feel the pangs of huHger.
The chtf, who is never, or hardly ever, seen ,
is an important personage, and in the Gem he
daily gives a most satisfying account of him
self. Several things are noticeable on th" 1
Gem — one never hears an oath nor sees a man
under the influence of liquor, (there is no bar
on the boat) and one sees no card playing.
The commodore closed the services by read
ing from memory, and with great feeling, the
folowing hymn: "
Just to let thy Father do
What He will;
.fust to know that He is tr ue,
And be still.
.Tust to follow hour by hour
As He leadeth;
Just to draw tbe moment's power
As it needetb.
Just to trust Him, this is all!
Then the day will surely be
Peaceful, whatsoe'er befall,
Bright and blessed, calm and free.
Among the passengers on the up-trip wf° :
Mrs. Chadbourne and family, Miss Gru .
Mr. Henry and wife, S. M. Bayless and family,
Mrs. Kleinsmith and family, Mrs. Green, Mrs.
J. C. McGee, Mrs. Letcher, D. Mackey and

MINUTES OF MEETING ON THE GEM CITT.
St. Paul, July 1. — A meeting of the pas
sengers of the Gem City was held as the
steamer neared the city, and it was felt on all
hands that the watchfulness of the captain
and the attention of First Clerk Hatcher, and of
E. B. Buckley, the chief steward, be acknowl
edged in a public way, and the undersigned,
therefore, for themselves and in the cause of
the passengers generally, beg to thank the
captain, and the officers named, for securing
a mo6t enjoyable passage, not marred by a
word, or voice, or incident painful to the
most delicate ears, and they commend the
Gem City aa being entitled "to the best con
sideration of the public.
Signed by the passengers generally.
The Bald Eagle, also of the Saints line,
which arrived Thursday evening, is at the
levee to leave to-day at 4r . m. She will
have as part of her fraight a large consign

Sports of the Day.
Harvard and Yale.
New London, July I.— The story of to
day's race is a chapter of delay and disappoint
ment, followed by a contest more spirited
than ever before seen in a college boat race-
The race set for 4 o'clock was postponed on
account of a heavy sea. Harvard was the first
to appear, quickly followed by Yale. The
former wai stopped by the referee and given
the necessary instructions and immediately af
terward paddled over to her position on
the west side, being soon joined by Yale.
As tbe two crews aligned them
selves for the word, a glance
showed Yale's superior physical development.
In a moment the referee made ready to give
the word and almost instantly Yale flew
through the water as though sprung from a
gun, only to be recalled at the third stroke to
her original position, amid the jeers
of the Harvard men. At 6:30 the start
was made, Harvard having the advantage, but
at the end of the first two hundred yards Yale
had the lead half a length which was increas
ed to. a length and a half, when
the half mile .points was reached Harvard
now bent to their oars, and by spurt after
spurt soon cot on even terms, and passed the
mile flag one-half length ahead. At the navy
yard the boats seemed on even terms a^ain.
Yale now got her reserve power into the work
and slowly but surely was gaining the lead un
til at the two and a half mile buoy all the
crew could see Harvard a length and a half in
he rear, and at the end of three miles,
Yale* had advantage of two
lengths; thence to finish, through
spurting frequently, could not gain an inch
more. The ecene" was now one that has had
no parallel in the history of boating at New
London. Yale struggled for a greater lead,
and Harvard to cut it down, and thus, spurt
answering spurt, the two boats crossed the
line in the 6ame relative position that had been
maintained for nearly a mile, YaZe leading by
Time: Yale, fir3t mile , 5:20; second mile,
10:50; third mile, l«: 40; course, 22:13. Har
yard, first mile, 5:25; second, 10:59; third,
16:45; course, 22:19. In the evening the Yale
men celebrated their victory by escorting the
crew to Crocker house, singing" and cheering
as they marched.

The Sangerbund at Chicago.
Chicago, July 1. — To-day's programme at
the exposition building, while not quite so at
tractive on the whole, as some preceedmg
performances by the members of the Sanger
bund, was nevertheless rich in gems of song
and in solos by the distinguished prima don
nas and gentleman who are aiding the bund.
The evening programme was also a mixed
one, and not altogether popular, so that the
audience, in numbers, as well as in enthusi
asm, fell far below that of last night.
There were portions of the concert, however,
which were triumphs of the greatest merit.
Chicago, July I.— The banquet given by the
North American Sangerbund to the press repre
sentatives from abroad was given at the
Grand Palace hotel this mornijg; several hun
dred persons were present. The banquet was
superbly served and thoroughly enjoyed for
social features. Toasts weie responded to by
Mayor Harrison and others. Many of the
noted artists of the land were present.
Immigration in New Tork.
New York, July I.— The Tribune says
agents are now here from Colorado to obtain
500 farm laborers with promise of plenty of
work and good wages. The demand for farm
and other laborers 15 jjreater than ever bs
fore. Fully 50 per cent, of the German im
migration Till settle west of the Mississippi
river. Great efforts are being made by Jay
Gould and others interested in the Texas rail
way to encourage immigration to Texas. Cir
culars are issued to ocean steamship lines and
booking agents here and in Europe, authoriz
ing the selling of tickets to emigrants desiring
to settle in Texas from New York to any point
in Texas at the uniform rate of $25, with 10
per cent, to agents. There is a marked
change in destination of Irish immigrants aa
greater percentage are settling in Missouri and
Arkansas than formerly. A large cumber of
Italians are going to Ohio, and special effort
is made to attract them to Florida by capital
ists, who purchased large tracts of land in
that State. Scandinavians are going to New
Mexico, but not sojfar as in formeryears, the
majority settling in Nebraska and Minnesota.
A Big Strike.
Kansas Citt, July I.— The switchmen on
twelve roads struck to-day for an increase of
$10 per month. The strikers threaten vio
lence if any one interferes to do the work, and
trouble is anticipated.

HOME RULE DECLARATION.
London, July I.— At a meeting of home
rulers last night a resolution was passed, de
claring that as . the government had taken
away all opportunity for raising questions on
their policy, Irishmen would be justified in
protesting against ' provocative acts ■by the
authorities in their constituencies, in such
way as to force the subject upon the attention
of the government. ,
THE LAND BILL.
In commons last night an amendment to
the land bill was offered by ; Russell, requiring
the court to have regard in fixing statuary
rents to the interest of both' the landlords and
tenants was accepted and carried. Russell's
amendment disposes of , the most disputable
point in the seventh clause. Gladstone yesterday
somewhat nullified his : previous declaration
concerning the inviolability of leases, by the
statement that some relief should be given to
lease-holders who are subjected to undue pres
sure. How this to be done is reserved for fu
ture consideration. .

As it becomes apparent that tota factions in the

sfaotory candidate for governor because he wi 1
not step iato tbe Senatorial contest n hen that cornea,
the Pioneer Press is endeavoring to work up a
prejudice against hm on the allegation that D M.
Sabin favors him. There is something peculiar
1 about Sabin. Whenever be has supported Pillsbury
or any other man wtiom tbe Pioneer Prest has fa
vored, for the first or third term, Sabin's preference
has been a sign of a man's Spartan integrity. Bat
when the PioneerPresi hss a hostility to t candidate
which Sabin does not ibare, then the Pioneer Press
finds B»bin's wants of hostility to indicate a prefer
ence based on corrupt considerations
Among the names prominently mentioned for the
Republican nomination for governor is that of Hon.
A. B. McCHu, of St. Peter. Though older than Hor
ace Austin or C. X Davis, when these gentlemen oc
cupied the gubernatorial chair, Mr. McOlll is a rep
resentative of tbe younger element of the Republican
party— the men who became voters after tbe admis
sion of sUanesote Into the Union. After finish ing
his education Mr. McGiil came to Minnesota some
twenty-four year* ago, and engaged in the practice
of law in St. Peter, where he has since resided. In
1870 he was appointed private secretary to Governor

Baltimore, July 1. — Special dispatches
from Crisfield, Eastern shore, give accounts
of a cyclone* in Tangier Sound, Chesapeake
Bay, yesterday. At Gideal's Island, two boats
were driven through the bridge leading from
the main land to the island, tearing
the bridge completely away. A schooner
sunk off Fox's island and all on board were
drowned. The body of a negro was found
lashed to a mast on Smith's island. Vessels
were blown high and dry on the beach, one
landing in a potato patch thirty yards from
the shore. The storm lasted nearly an
hour and was accompanied by lightning and ter
rific peals of thunder. At Watts' island tbe wind
was so strong as to lift a schooner almost
clear out of the water, capsizing her and
drowning two of the crew. Further up the
sound a schooner capsized, and two men were
drowned. A colored man was knocked over
board from another boat and was drowned.
Chicago, July I.— The south-bound passen
ger train on the Chicago & Eastern Illinois
railroad collided with the Grand Trunk north

witch. The engine of the passenger train
was wrecked, and the baggage car telescoped
into the smoking car, maiming and bruising
nineteen people. The engineer, Frank
Hagen, was caught in the wreck, and
will probably die from scalds and
bruises. Jacob Burgess, U. S. ganger, livin g
at Bloom, this county, had both legs broken
and can hardly recover. The other persons
wounded are Dan. Lindsay, Joe Lauch, J.

Pacific road, last night, nearly demolished an

Washington, June 1. — The supervising in
spector general has sent a circular to local
inspectors urging a rigid enforcement of the
regulation in regard to the quantity of steam
each is allowed to carry, and such other reg
ulations as tend to prevent the racing of
steamboats. The inspector general cannot
prohibit racing, but in view of the recent ex
plosion from racing, he wants to do all in his
power towards preventing it.
THE VIRGINIA CAMPAIGN.
The Republicans of Virginia who favor a
coalition with the readjusters, are publishing
letters from prominent Republicans favoring
that movement. Letters to this effect have
just been published from Senators logalls and
Blair. In galls writes that Malone represents
the progressive element, whose supremacy will
obliterate race prejudices and make the ballot
free and priceless and regenerate the South.
These letters are being published for the pur
pose of influencing the coming Republican
convention to endorse the Mahone ticket.
It is announced that Gen. James B. Fry, as
sistant adjutant general, will be placed en the
retired list within a day or two. By the re
tirement of Gen. Fry, Gen. Robert Williams
will become full colonel, and Gen. Thomas M.
Vincent, lieutenant colonel. These promo
tions will make a vacancy which will be filled
by the advancement of Col. Wm. G. Mitchell,
an aide-dc camp of Maj. Gen. Hancock. His
promotion by the President is in compliance
with a personal request made by Gen.

Secretary Kirkwooa, at a late hour thig
evening, soon after returning from the cabi
net meeting, notified Auditor French of his
suspension from the office of commissions!
of railways. Upon receiving information
French intimated to the secretary his intention
at once to resign. It is not yet known who
will be the successor of French. Very probably
no appointment will be made for several weeks,
or until Psesident Garfield returns from his
trip to New England.
THE PRESIDENT'S TBIP.
President Garfield will leave Washington
for the Noath to-morrow to be absent two
weeks. The following is the schedule of the

will go to Irvidgton, on the Hudson, the
guest of Cyrus W. Field, till Monday. At 10
o'clock Monday he will go to Wil
liamstown, till Thursday. That
forenoon be will leave Williamstown for St.
Albans, Vt., where he will stay until Friday,

is probable, however, from Bethlehem Mrs.
Garfield will return and visit Mentor, O , and
the President to Washington.
THE CUSTODIAN'S RING.
Secretary Windom's circular issued, to-day,
directing how the business of the treasury
custodian shall be conducted hereafter, so to
prevent frauds and speculation such as have
existed, is said to be the first step of the sec
retary towards sweeping out all who were
guilty, and of correcting all evils that grown
up under them. Its now believed that the
secretary will before long give out for publi
cation the report that the investigation com
mittee submitted to him. The accused parties
all along maintained that the report contain
ed nothing against them; as long as the report
is kept secret they can shield themselves
behind this. The secretary's circular con
firms what has leaked out about the contents
of the report, that it showed up frauds in buy
ing goods and supplies for the department
from favored firms. Supplies can only be
bought hereafter by regular contract, and it
is intended to arrange matters so that old car
pets and other worn articles can only be sold
after being condemned by a board appointed
for that purpose, and complete record must be
made of every transaction.
Secretary Windom orders that on and after
the first proximo, all common carriers whose
cars or vessels are secured by customs, lead
seals and wires, be required by collectors af
customs to reimburse the government for the
cost of said seals 349 cents per thousand seals,
and 530 per thousand for seals and wires.

of Order Aalnst the Validity of Proceed
Alb an t, Jnly l.—The joint convention met
at noon. Spinola raised th« point of order
that it being ten minutes past 12 o'clock, and
the law of Congress requiring the convention
o meet at 12, it was not in order to proceed.
The chair decided there was no point of order
and announced the convention would proceed
to vote for United States Senator to fill the
short term, which was done:
Potter 48 Conkling 28
Wheeler 88 Cornell 7
Lapham 13 Folger 1
Rogers 4 Orowley 2
The chairman announced that the conven
tion would now vote to fill the vacancy in the
long term. The speaker said he had been vot
ing for T. C. Platt. At his request and in the
interest of the Republican party he withdrew
the name of Platt as a candidate, and would
when his name was called vote for Richard
Crowley. The convention proceeded to vote.
Senator Holbert, after speaking in high farms
of his qualifications, voted for O. W. Chap
man. The vote resulted:
Depew 40 Kernan 48
Platt 3 Cornell 15
Chapman 4 Crowley 20
North 1 Daniels 1
Lapham. 1 Adams... 1
Draper said he had voted for the return of
the two resigning senators from principle.
He believed they bad acted right and ought to
be returned. He knew of no good reason ..for
the withdrawal of one of those candidates and
he would therefore vote for Platt, (applause).
Trimble also voted for Platt. Motion to ap

They were much displeased at Platt's with

Ex- Marshal Paine refused to carry the request
to Speaker Sharpe until Platt told him he
would go to the capitol himself.
There was a re,K>rt this evening that the
withdrawal was the work of Paine, without
Platt's consent, but good authority says Platt
insisted upon it. It has been reported for
weeks that Platt was determined to withdraw
as soon as fully convinced that there was no
hope of his election.
