A County Superintendent Arise* Upon
His Auricular and Attempts to Ride.
Yesterday morning Miss Alice Elliott,
a teacher in school district No. 10, Wash
ington county, accompanied by Mr. Pat
rick Morrison of Stillwater, called upon
Prof. Richie, stale superintendent of
public instruction, as the bearer of
a petition of the school officers
of the district. The petition is
given below, and to this the reader is
referred for the statement of facts upon
■which the petition is based. If the state
ments made in the petition are true, it
shows the possession ot .a dangerous
power in the office of county superin
tendents, or at least that the superintend
ent of Washington county exercised
such a power. Not feeling himself called
upon, or qualified to pass upon the legal
points raised in the petition, Miss Elliot
was referred to Attorney Gen
eral Hahn, but that officer
being absent, his assistant, E. P. Lane,
who, while declining to give a formal
opinion, advised Miss Elliott to go back
and continue her school until the end of
To the Honorab'e Superintendent of Public
The undersigned, trustees of school district
number ten in the county of Washington,
Minr.,raost respectfully represent that for
seven eoasecntiye terms Mi6s Alice Elliott
has taught the school in said district to the
satisfaction of all the people in faid district;
that she held a steond gmde certificate signed
by Rev. A. D Roe, county superintendent of
schools for Washington county; that the
superintendent frequently told the people that
Miss Elliott was capable of teaching in any
district school in the county.
The undersigned re-engaged Miss Elliott to
teach during the present terra, commencing
the 17th day of April last, and that she en
tered upon her duties on that day, and con
tinued to perform her duties until the 29th
day of April last, at which time she was cited
to appear liefore said county superintendent
for the purpose of a re-examina
tion; that she appeared at the
time and place mentioned in the
citation, but that the superintendent refused
to examine her and only told her that he did
not want her to teach in that district; that she
might teach in any other district; that the
trustees and people of said district No. 10 did
not wish to make Hty charge, but insisted
that Miss Elliott choulJ continue until the
end of the t-rtu, and that thereupon the coun
ty superintendent revoked and annulled the
license issued to her and gave notice to the
district clerk of the fact. That upon personal
inquiry on the part of the trustees, the said
superintenderit stated that he bad no other
reason for the revocation of the license than
that he did not want her to teach in that dis
trict. The undersigned arc of the opinion
that the action of the superintendent is based
upon pereor.aj fee-lings entirely, and is doing
great iujnsticTto the people of the district,
wherefore the undersigned ask that said Miss
Elliott muy be examined by the state superin
tendent, and if qualified, that she may receive
a certificate ana permission to complete the
term for which she h;ts been engaged.

Carrviux C acnaled Weapons.
On the night of the 14th Officer Casey
and Thomas lloran had some words dur
ing which Horan drew a pistol on the
officer. The next day the officer caused
the arrest of Horan, upon the charge of
violation of the ordinance againt carry
ing concealed Aveapons. Upon the trial
in the municipal court Tuesday, the ICth,
Horan, while claiming he was acting in
self defense, plead guilty to the charge
of carrying and drawing the weapon as
alleged in the complaint, whereupon
Judge Burr sentenced him to pay a fine
of $100, and the loss of the weapon by
confiscation. Notice of a stay of pro
ceedings was entered by O'Brien & Wil-
Bon, attorneys for Horan, and yesterday a
notice of appeal to the supreme court
was served upon City Attorney Murray
and Clerk Fairchild, the ground of appeal
being that the ordinance is unconstitu
tional. The result of the appeal will be
watched with considerable interest as set
tling the extent to which municipal cor
porations can go in efforfc to do away
with the very pernicious and dangerous
habit of carrying concealed weapons.

Chicago, May 20 —Although the day was
perfect, the bears couldn't drive prices down,
and wheat cloßed at the top prices of the day;

fact that the short purEed bears have already

Corn closed at about yesterday's figures, al
though it tumbled earlier. The drop was

[Special to Associated Press.]
Chicago, May 20.— Flour remains steady
and firm . Jobbers are looking around a little,
but trade is generally slow.
Wheat was fairly active and somewhat un
settled, bnt firmer and higher, owing to the
light receipts, reports of rain and the demand
on Milwaukee account. Outside reports were
not given much weight. It was noted that
considerable quantities of winter wheat has
been shipped to Chicago for lake shipment to
the seaboard. Prices dropped early about a
cent below yesterday's close on call, bat later
advanced 1 % ® !■£ c, then fluctuated, and finally
closed 1% c higher for June, %c higher for
July than yesterday on 'change. Bales, $1.26

Corn was in fair demand, rather active at
times, but generally easy and lower. The
opening was weak, %@)ic lower, followed by
a further drop of a @£ c, then advanced about
the middle of the session X @&c, but at the
close settled back and closed &@.VC below

Provisions had quite a boom and advanced

shipping demand fell off but speculation was
active. Cables were firmer.

A Seusion of Hufl'ragUts.
iKDiANAroLis, Ind., May 19. — The
state convention of women interested in
the cause of female suffrage convened in
this city to-day. A v jout 350 delegates
were present. Mrs. May W. Sewell was
elected president. A welcome address
was delivered by Mrs. Z. G. Wallace of
this city. Committees on enrollment,
resolutions and finance were appointed.
Several addresses were delivered during
the session showing the progression
that universal suffrage was making. A
number of distinguished ladies are
present, among whom were Miss Foster,
of Philadelphia. A resolution of thanks
to the Daily Sentenal for its advocacy of
woman's rights, was adopted. A tele
gram to the United States senate commit
tee, thanking it for its action on the fe
male suffrage question was sent by the
convention in behalf of the women of
Indiana. A mass meeting will be held
to night at which Gov. Porter, Rev. M.
Reed and others will deliver addresses.
The woman's suffrage convention
adopted the following resolutions:
Resolved, That we earnestly call upon
the women of Indiana to unite in the de
mand that the amendment conferring
suffrage upon women be submitted to the
voters of the state for their adoption.
Resolved, That as impartial suffrage is
an issue broad enough for all parties, we
invoke the co-operation of all men, irre
spective of party, to aid us in securing to
woman, as to man, the prerogatives of
full citizenship and self-government.
Resolved, That the principles promul
gated in the declaration of independence
and embodied in the constitution of the
United States are essential to the preser
vation of republican institutions and that
the spirit is subverted in any form of
government wherein is denied to women
citizeus the right of representation and
participation in the enactment of the law
she is required to obey.
At the mass convention to-night ad
dresses were made by Rev. Myron Reed,
Hon. J. 11. Maynard, editor of the Senti
nel, Miss Foster, of Philadelphia, and
Mrs. Goughar and Mrs. Haggert, of In
Kansas Citt, May 20.— Never has the
growing wheat crop attracted so general at
tention and so much solicitude in this section
as now. The presence of chinch bugs
throughout Kansas last jear, tbe general
shortage in the crop resulting from these in
sects, and the dry weather has made Kansas
the pivotal point of the crop. The season
has been exceptionally favorable. Reports
from southwestern Kansas are wonderfully
unanimous that growing wheat is in unusu
ally good condition. Central Kansas corres
pondents agree that prospects are very flatter
ing. The late cool weather has been very
beneficial aud the plant looks healthy and
stroDg, promising a large yield. The average
of corn is said to be very large and most of it
up. Pasture is good and the general outlook
is encouraging all over the state.

"1 prithee do not go."
Reginald Mulcahey turned as these
w.ords, spoken in tones that were tender
ly thrilling, fell upon his good right ear,
and advanced slowly up the plank side
walk that led from the portcullis to the
front steps of the terraced castle of Eth
elbert MeMurtry, eighth duke of Blue Is
"I thought you would speak to me,
Lady Constance," he said, to a tall, shape
ly maiden of nineteen summers, who
stood on the veranda of the castle. "I
thought you could not send me away for
ever without one word of hope — one little,
tiny, Democratic-vote-in-lowa hope. I
know full well that in the
dreary, dismal New York Post
editorial future wliicn rises up before me
like a black- wipged spectre of the night
there can be naught in my life but deso
late days whose hours shall pass with
laden feet, and black, bitter nights when
I shall toss around restlessly in a poker
game, thinking only of the love that has
gone from me forever. We may never
meet again, Constance — probably never
shall, unless I begin going to the
matinees — but I should like to feel that,
although you can never love me again,
never let me buy candy for you, there is
still in your heart a kindly feeling, a
tinge of pity, for one to whom your
sweet face has for many, many years —
way back before the White Stockings
won the championship — been a beacon
light to guide him safely o'er the wind
swept sea of North Side life. Am I
hoping for too much?" and the beautiful
brown eyes that had witched so many
hearts from behind the ribbon counter
looked into those of Constance MeMurtry
with a wistful pleading, don't-untie-the
dog-if-you love-me look that wouldhave
melted a heart of Chicago beefsteak.
For an instant the girl did not reply.
A look of pain, as if some sad memory
had been recalled by Reginald's words,or
a corset steel got loose, passed over her
face, and then, regaining her composure
by a mighty effort.bhe placed a tiny.gloTed
hand on the young man's shoulder and
spoke in low, measured tones that shewed,
far more than could any words, the terri
ble intensity of the agony that this separ
ation was causing her.
"For two years, Reginald," she said,
"I have loved you with a deep, passion
ate, all-absorbing love that would make
your head swim if you only knew about
it. I have looked forward with pride and
joy in my girlish innocence and enthusi
asm to the day when you should lead me
to the nuptual altar and crown the sweet
spring-time of my life with the golden
glory of a love that should last forever.
I had whispered to myself that I should
make you a faithful, loving, always-have
breakfast-in-time wife. There has come
to me often a vision of a happy home,
where I should pass my days in happi
ness and stocking mending. But the
vision has gone, the beautiful blue sky
with its fringe of rose-tinted clouds has
passed away, and in its place I see an
angry firmament, across which drift the
leaden clowds of despair. And so it is
better that we should part now, before
supper, and let the dead past be its own
Reginald saw that all hope was gone,
that he was certain to be left on third
base. "Good-bye, Constance," he mur
mured. "I must go now, because I want
to stop on my way over town and buy
my sister a sealskin sacque."
The girl turned quickly, and looked at
"Do you mean what you say?" she
asked in hoarse, anxious toaes.
"I do," was the reply.
"And would you buy your wife a seal
"Certainly," said Reginald; "two of
them, if she liked "
A happy smile spread over the girl's
face. Twining her arms around Regi
nald's neck, she placed her tiny head on
his shoulder, and then the little rose
bud mouth puckered up with a sweet,
beatific pucker, as she said in tender
"You may call again this evening.

the Russians are a religious people. One
sees this not only in the large numbers both
of men and women who attend the churches,
but also in the tens of thousands who yearly
co on pilgramages to sacred places.
From the vaults at the church on Broome
and Bridge streets, New York, about a thou
sand coffins with the dust of the dead have
been removed. Only about fifty could be
identified, though the vaults were closed as
recently as 1853. Dust unto dust—undis
tinguishable dust. Verily "what shadows
we are and what shadows we pursue."
A Minnesota inventor, says the New Eng
land Farmer , proposes to send grain from the
west to the seaboard by a pipe line, somewhat
as pretroleum is sent from the oil regions,
the grain being propelled by compressed air.
The experiment has been found to work per

Cincinnati Enquirer: Gen. Arthur was
our vice president and is now our president;
and hence you will find that the tail is wag
ging the dog while Ohio is breaking away
from the party; and as the Whigs lost the
government under Vice President Tyler and
Vice President Fill more, they are pretty sure
to lose it, it seems to us, under Vice President
Cecil makes a distinction between learning
and knowledge. He says a preacher may have
little of what is called learning, but he must
have knowledge. There is a knowledge of
spiritual things which no books and no genius
can give. The humblest Christian may have
this knowledge; and it is this "light from
heaven" that creates the effective preacher,
who carries conviction to the heart of the
Full particulars of the recent discoveries
made by Capt. Cornier, on the east side of the
Jordan, are published in the quarterly state
ment of the Palestine Exploration society. He
found four great centers, the first of which he
identifies with Bamorth Baal, the second with
Baal Peor, the third with "the top of Baal
Peor, which looks toward Jerusalem," and
the fourth with the "Sanctuary of Baal Peor,"
in the Jordan valley, where the Israelites
worshiped in Shittim.
Canon Farrar in a sermon in Westminster
Abbey, held the nation responsible for the
prevailing immoralities of England. He pre
dicts that God's inexorable law will at last
send a Nemesis crowned with fire, trampling
guilty nations into indiscriminate ruin. Na
ture and Destiny are but the names of this it
resistible Providence. The scandalous bronze
lacquer age of hungry animalism, spiritual
impotencies and mendacities will have to run
its course till the pit swallows it.
The editor of a well-known religious jour
nal called one evening on a friend who was a
deacon in the church. His wife received the
visitor, explaining that her husband would be
down in a few minutes. During the conver
sation there were noises upstairs which pro
ceeded unmistakably from the flogging of a
boy. Pretending not to comprehend the cause
of the sounds the editor said: "Perhaps I
have interfered with some important engage
ment of your husband ?" "Not at all," she
replied, "he'll be at leisure soon; he's only
furnishing an example of a Christian at work."
The delinquencies of Christians of the fourth
century were very much of the same type as
those of professors of the present day. Chry
sostum preached against the defects and neg
lects of Christians of that day, and his ser
mons give a vivid picture of the manners
and customs of professing Chris
tians in that centary. He re
proved them for failing to search the scrip
ture*, and for neglecting the reading of Chris
tian books. Said he: "Draughts aad dice
we shall find in your houses, books no where,
or at least in but few."
Feaelon: It is ordained by God that we be
conformed to the image of his Son, that we
may be crncifted to f elf; that we renounce
sensual pleasures, and submit like him, to
suffering. But how great is our blindness!
We would quit the cross that unites us to our
master. Let us live, and let us die, with him
who came to show us the true way to heaven.
We must take up the cross, if we would fol.
low him. We suffer in the narrow way, but
we hope. We suffer, but we behold the heavens
opening. We suffer, bnt we are willing to
suffer. We love God, and his love will be our
At a meeting of the Evangelical Alliance, in
New York recently, Dr. Hodge said: "The
great question which divides theists and athe
ists, Christians from unbelievers, is this: is
development an intellectual process guided by
God, or is it a blind process of unintelligible
unconscious force which knows no end and
adopts no means? In other words, is God the
author of all we see, the creator of all the
beauty and grandeur of this world, or is un
intelligible force, gravity, electricity and such
like? This is a vital question. We canaot
stand here, and hear men talk about develop
ment without telling us what development
The Rev. Dr. Hodge, in the meeting of the
New York Evangelical Alliance, defined his
idea of Darwinism thus: "My idea of Dar
winism is that it teaches that all the forms of
vegetable and animal life, including man and
all the organs of the human body, are the result
of unintelligent, undesignating forces, and
that the human eye was formed by mere un
conscious action. Now, according to my
idea, that is a denial of what the Bible teaches,
of what reason teaches, and of what the cos
science of any human being teaches; for it is
impossible for any such organ as the eye to
be formed by blind forces. It excludes God;
it excludes intelligence from everything."

The property of this Company is owned almost exclusively, ud is controlled, by Minnesota
parties, among whom are many of the most prominent and successful business men of the
state, ensuring for its management the best business talent and the strictest integrity in the
conduct of all of its affairs; and being essentially a home enterprise, the attention of our
citizens is especially called to it.
The property is situated in the
A.MOTJS S^IST JUAN EEGION,
In Colorado, known as the richest silver bearing country in the world, and consists of four
distinct properties, forming a compact group, with an abundance of wood and water upon
and in close proximity to it. Within one and one-halt miles of Lake City, the metropolis of
San Juan, the Denver & Rio Grande R. R. is graded to within one mile of the mine, which is
of easy access at all seasons of the year «; . ' . ; -
The mine is thoroughly equipped with a 20-horse power steam hoist er, and buildings.
The woik of development is being vigorously prosecuted. The workings upon the mine
have continuously shown a very high grade of ore that is steadily improving as work pro
gresses, and with the careful business management to which it is subjected, warrants the
statement that the SULPHURET CONSOLIDATED has passed the period of uncertainty and
doubt, and now may be safely classed as a mine which promises in the near future to richly
compensate its stockholders.
