THE TELEGRAPHERS' S Tit I ICE .
The threatened strike of telegraph oper
ators was inaugurated throughout the
country yesterday, but from present indi
cations is likely to prove much less serious
than was anticipated. In the larger com
mercial cities business will be temporarily
disarranged, but the resources
of the telegraph companies are
such that even this is not likely
to be prolonged. The business men
manifest a disposition to adapt themselves
to the situation and confine their messages
to the most important matters, thereby re
lieving the company to some extent from
the demands usually made upon them.
The sentiment is very general among busi
ness men that the strike is one which
should not be prolonged, and while
those who have investigated the matter
agree that the demands of the brotherhood
are too extreme, the general feeling is
that a satisfactory compromise can and
should be reached. Gen. Eckert's request
to be furnished with the list of dissatisfied
employes, has now been practically
answered by the vacation of their
positions and the company can now
act tntelligently. We do not believe
the telegraphers themselves expect their
full demands to be complied with, but they
have evidently asked more than they expect
for the purpose of having a basis for com
promise. While the public sentiment may
agree that they are entitled to some con
cession, it will almost unanimously agree
that they have asked too much, and a com
promise, fair to both parties, is all that
can be reasonably expected, and all that
business interests or popular sentiment
will expect or demand.
The well filled telegraphic news columns
of the Globe this morning affords ample
evidence that the strike cannot cripple
the telegraphic service, as was anticipated.
The Globe special wire was in active
use last night, in charge of
operators in oui- employ, who
are not affected by the strike, and the
associated press report was handled in good
shape m St. Paul last night. The contest
is one which cannot long continue, and very
soon, either by compromise or in some
other manner, the telegraphic business of
the country will proceed as usual. The
public interests at stake are too great and
vital to be permanently crippled by such a

A THEEE MILLION DOLLAB FIBE.
New York, July 19.— At about 10:30
o'clock this morning a spark from an en
gine fell into a pile of jute, which had
just been landed on Parbeck's dock from
the ship Lawrence E . Delap from Cal
cutta. The dock was filled with hemp,
jute and coffee. The flames spread with
rapidity and in a few minutes the entire
dock was ablaze. The Delap was the first
vessel to catch fire and all her rigging was
burned before she could be towed out.
Next to her on the south side of the dock
was the ship Severance, also from Cal
cutta, which arrived yesterday, and on the
north side lay the ship Col . Adair from
Calcutta, which arrived yesterday, and on
the north side lay the ship Col. Adams
from Calcutta. To both these vessels the
flames communicated and the crews
jumped overboard for safety. In the
meantime a general alarm had been sent
o m and five steamers and
four l> ook and ladder trucks
were soon on the spat : When the firemen
reached the dock the support of the roof
gave way and the roof fell in with a crash,
burying over a dozen firemen and dock
hands beneath the ruins. A rescuing
party quickly formed, and the men were
dragged out from the blazing rafters, none
being dead but all more or less burned and
bruised. Firemen McNamara, McDonald
and McDougall, of hook and ladder truck,
were the three injured seriously. A com
; motion just then occurred in the crowd,
and the chief of the battalion gave orders
to clear the dock as the ship Lawrence
Delap, which was now on fire above and
below, contained 4,500 bags of saltpetre.
A rush was made by the crowd to the fur
ther end cl the dock. While this wag
going on a hasting derrick, from which
* the supports tad been burned, fell over
on the wharf <?r:th a crash, knocking two
dockmen overboard. Custom house in
spector, Hanaden, in attempting to escape
from the ship Col . Adams, was severely
burned about the face and hand?. The
ships, Perseverance and Col. Adams, had
by this time been towed far out in the
stream and the tugs poured streams of
water into their holds. The efforts of the
firemen were mainly directed to extin- !
guishing the ~ amOg on board the Law , '
renoQ ft Delap, on which it v/£3 j
momentarily feared an explosion IwoioH
take place. At 11:30 she was still biasing
fiercely, but the extent of tho losses are
unknown but undoubtedly heavy.
Later. — The district officer at Harbeck's
dock stated the captain of the Lawrence E.
Delap, with his wife and three children,
are reported drowned. Two dock hands
are also reported drowned and one sailor
killed outright by falling timber . The
Loss now is estimated at between $2,000,
--000 and $3,000,000.
Bbookltn, July 19. — A fire is now raging
at the Harbeck stores. Two sheds are de
stroyed and a full rigged ship and bark
supposed to be laden with seed oil, paints
and general merchandise are burning.
The surrounding shipping is in danger.
THE COTTON CATTEBPILLAB.
Selma, Ala., Julyl9. — The cotton catter
piller has made a general appearance in

near this city shows the top leaves badly
riddled. Plenty of worms are in sight and
webbed up. The crop iB three weeks late,
and the worms are in such numbers two
weeks earlier than usual .

The Manitoba Southwestern Colonization
The Manitoba Southwestern railway en
gineers are still engaged running trial
lines in townships 4 and 5, range 7. They
appear to be meeting with considerable
difficulties, a3 by all accounts their lines
are exceedingly crooked and graced with
occasional right-angles. The engineers
are reticent and give no information. The
Nelson Mountaineer states that at a meet

way matters came up for consideration,
and after some discussion it was decided
to endeavor to arrange an interview be

town of Nelson. Accordingly, on Tuesday
Mr. Hill was telegraphed requesting him
to appoint a time and place of meeting.
His reply was receiyed on Thursday and
was to the effect that the surveys were not
yet far enough advanced to warrant any
definite arrangement, and that theiefore
an interview at the present would be a
mere waste of time, as nothing could be
The Northern RmUway of Toronto to b
Extended to Lake Xipissing.
The report is current that the Northern
railway, of Ontario, is to be extended
from Gravenhurst to South East bay, or
Lake Nipissing. This indentation is said
to be one of the finest harbors and boom
ing grounds on the lake, and a number of
lumber firms have their mind's eye on
the locality for mills as soon as transpor
tation facilities are afforded. South East
Bay is looked upon as the coming town of
Lake Nipissing. The lake, which is 100
miles long, and from 20 to 30 miles wide
and of irregular outlines, will eventually
become the center of important lumber
interests, and the product of the mills then
will doubtless find a market westward, in
Manitoba, over the Canadian Pacific rail
road, or its rival to be on the south shore
of Lake Superior. Much of the lumber to
be produced in that region will also go
westward by way of the lake and rail
route. The cut of timber about Lake
Nipissing the past winter amounted to
1,000,000 cubic feet, and all of fine qual

St. Louis, July 19. — Your city's most
worthy namesake and precocious foster
child, the "Saint Paul," of the St. Loais &
St. Paul Packet company's fleet of ele
gant side wheel liners, departed hence
yesterday afternoon with such a load of
passengers (200 in number) that my Faber
shoving proclivities are about at a loss
when I would describe the scene ©n the
company's wharf boat at the time of de
parture. The creme de la creme of the
best society, not only from St. Louis but
also from many cities south, east and west
were there, about to start out in search of
that world renowned rejuvenating
fountain of the doubty old
Spanish cavalier, Ponce de Leon, which in
the winter is to be found among the orange
groves and magnolias of Florida, but
which miraculously transfers itself in
summer to the breezy hills and
lakes of Minnesota. As I walked the
Saint Paul's magnificent saloon glancing
here and there in the inquiring mood of a
special correspondent, I could not but envy
this appropriately dressed crowd of tour
ists, the many varying pleasures they were
about to enjoy. I write of appropriately
dressed tourists as a-lack a-day it has been
my luck so often to see parties starting en
a tour gotten up as for a ball room, that
yesterday afternoon's experience of their
absence was particularly refreshing. What
is that bevy of buxom beat^ies crowding
together for? Ah! I see. We have a
photographer at the entrance to the saloon
adjusting his camera for a picture of the
Interior of the cabin and its motley group
ings and my fair friends are posing so
that they may add to the general effect of
the picture by embodying in it their pret

not a bit of it, a simple desire to serve
the photographer, that is all. The Saint
Paul's saloon ia chastely beautiful, painted
iD pure white, with here and there a
glimpse of color and a touch of gold . As
to her staterooms, I overheard a lady re
mark: "They are the very personification
of neatness and fairly woo to sweet slum
ber ."As I made the down trip from|St.Paul
in this boat, I fully appreciate the delights
of her table, the presiding genius over
which knows exactly how to suit every
body's taste and who is limited in selection
only by the contents of the St. Louis and
other markets along the line of the river.
I hear the band tuning up, but no dance
for me; it must be my 6ignal for going
ashore. And still 'tis hard, oh very hard,
to tear myself away, not only from this
beautiful boat, with her load of happy
tourists, but from joys which but a short
two weeks since were mine among the hills
and dells and breezy slopes of bonnie
Minnetonka, and which in four short days
the good Saint Paul would again p* ace

of the warning bell sounding in my ears I
cross the gang plank, but still linger on

Notes From the Teuted Field. '
At ;t:-*,O yesterday morning six com
panies of the First regiment of Minne
sota Guards marched from the St. Paul
armory to thu union depot, led by the
regimental band and drum corps. The
six companies being C, D and E of St.
Paul, F of Fergus Falls, G of Red Wing
and H of Litchfield, moved down Third
street in column by platoons and marched
well, though the glistening helmets did
show some irregularities of line. The
improvement • in appearance of the
battalion from all the companies being
uniformed alike was corumented upon by
spectators on the streets who remembered
the appearance of the first battalion last
year or saw the Second regiment at
New Ulm last week with its
varied company uniforms. At the
union depot the six compaanies.
after some delay were placed on board
cars of the St. Paul & Duluth road, and at
10 o'clock companies A, B and I name in
from Minneapolis. As soon as these com
panies could change cars the train pulled
out, and half an hour after the regiment
was completed by meeting the Stillwater
company at White Bear station . Here
the regiment was reformed in line and
marchsd at once to the camp ground, situ
ated a few hundred yards northeasterly
from the Williams house, in a
cleared grass field about opposite
Spirit island bridge. The regiment
was halted and faced into line in front
of the camp, and as it marched up,
showed a good deal of inequality in march
ing and delay in coming into line. Orders
were at once issued for guard detail, and
the companies dismissed to their tents,
where most of the men were for some time
busy organizing messes and otherwise
making ready for camp life.
Guard mounting was the first display of
the pomp and circumstance of the new
military town. The guard details, includ
ing commissioned and non-commissioned
officers numbers fifty, there being forty
two men to stand guard for twelve hours,
in three reliefs of fourteen men each. The
officers of the day and officers of the guard
are also detailed for only twelve hours,
the object being to extend the instructive
practice of guard service throughout the
regiment in the course of the week. The
officer of the day yesterday was Capt.
Bean, of D company, with Lieut. Puseh, of
the same company, for senior officer of the
guard, and Lieut. Estes, of F company, for
junior officer of the guard. The guard
mounting did not present a favorable ex
hibit of the training of the men, but it is
to be remembered that only a few of the
detail had yet had any practice of the
After the guard mount the putting of
tents in order and preparations for dinner
and eating the same occupied an hour or
two, when the regular routine of the camp
was taken up. The daily routine of the
camp, as established by orders of Col.
Bend, commanding, is as follows:
5 a. m. — Reveille.
5.30 a. m. — Company drill.
6:30 a. m.— Battalion drill.

On dress parade last evening the regi
ment formed in line much better thanjin
the morning and the parade passed, off
quite smoothly. The exercise in the man
ual of arms showed that the new compa
nies have already been pretty well drilled
in the handling of their guns. The guard
mount in the evening was a great improve
ment on that of the morning, the compny
details coming into line in better style
and promptly, and the inspection
of arms was a little more briskly gone
through. In the marching evolutions of
the guard, the first platoon wheeled nicely,
and the second did fairly on its second
turn, but badly at first. Here the band,
or the drum, m»js~; was scored" with and
*.° r it* second mistake of the day.
The detail of officers for last night was:
Officer of the day, Capt. Blakeley, of E
company: senior officer 3f the guard,
Lieut. Mitsch, of D company: jaoior
officer of the guard, Lieut. Estc?- ; of F
company. The detail for te-3ay is as
follows: Officer of the '.lay, Capt.
Harrison, of A company; senior
officer of the guard, I -'lent. Quonce of E
company; junior Gilicer of the guard,
Lieut. Williams of B company. Capt.
Wrigb*- of C company, will go on as of
ficer of the day this evening. Blakeiey
having taken the place last night because
Wright had just arrived from New York
and needed rest after his long journey.
At 10 p. m., according to orders and
usual regulations of camp life, our lads in
blue, except the guard detail, were all sup
posed to have retired to their tents. It
was understood that the colonel intended
to strictly enforce camp rules and those
who violated them might expect a day or
more in the guard house or at labor in
cleaning camp. But nevertheless there
were some who wanted to hear the music
and join the daace at Ramaley's pavilion,
and there were others who wanted to ex
plore the village and inquire the price of
lemonade and pop away from the sutler's
tent, and shortly before the train pulled
out for St. Paul at 9:40 a score or two of
the boys were seen far enough from
camp to render it doubtful whether they
would be in camp at 10 o'clock.
About 9 o'clock one of tho artillery
pieces was brought out by a freight train
and unloaded under direction of Capt.
Burger, State military Btore keeper and
captain of ordnance on the governor's
staff. Shortly after it was moved ont to
oamp under Quartermaster Metzger. In
camp the big gun will be in charge of
Sergeant Sawyer, late of the Twenty-fifth
U. S. infantry, who formerly served in the
Second XL S. artillery, and is a careful and
competant gunner. The gun will be need
for firing once morning and evening each
day, and for firing the governor's salute
Tuesday next, when Got. Hubbard and
staff will visit the camp for reviewing the
Col. Bend last evening complimented
Capt. Burger on his zeal and efficiency in
providing for the camp.he having brought
the tents from New Ulm, where they were
in use last week, and delivered them at
White Bear twenty-foar hours ahead of
the time allowed him. He also deserved a
compliment for bringing oat the gun and
its appurtenances, which were separated
and in care on the Sioux City track yester
About 200 persons visited the camp yes
terday, besides an equal number who as
sembled at evening to witness the parade
and guard mount, and it is probable it
will be visited by hundreds daily and by
thousands on Sunday and Tuesday.
The train which carried the regiment to (
White Bear yesterday included eleven
crowded passenger car?. Seven train? are
run daily each week day between St. Paul
and the lake and the same number of
trains will be run next Sunday.
Among arrivals at the Williams house,

Yesterday with Uieir Salvation — Ham
iisonu's Points— New Arrivals.
Rev. Mr. Hammond spent most of his
time yesterday in talking about children.
He asked three questions: First, can
children be converted? Secondly, how
young can children be converted? Thirdly,
will they continue Christians? The first
and last questions were answered in the
affirmative. The second question
depends for its answer on the
development of the child. The following
are the criteria of conversion :
1, To love to pray; 2, to love the Savior;
3, to love Christian asssciations; 4, to be
anxious to work for the good of others.
Among the arrivals yesterday was a del
egation from the Congregational churches
of Minneapolis, some of whom had been
acquainted with Mr. Hammond in other
Rev. Mr. Cary, pastor of the Presbyte
rian church in Grand Forks, Dak., was
among the visitors to the meeting 1 .
An invitation has been extended to the
soldiers' encampment at White Bear to be
present on Sunday afternoon . It is not
expected that they will come in a body,
but a number have signified their inten
tion to be present.
The attendance on the meeting was
noticeably larger yesterday than hereto
fore, and quite a number of additional
tents were erected.
The Swedish congregations of St . Paul,
Minneapolis and Stillwater will close their
churches on Sunday and hold a service in
the amphitheater at 1 o'clock on Sunday.
Rev. Dohlgren and several other clergymen
were present on tha grounds to make ar
rangements. They have rented two large
tents for headquarters.
The German congregations also contem
plate a camp meeting soon.
The steamboat has arrived from Still
water and lies on the flat cars near the
Mahtomedi station. It will be re
painted and put in thorough
repair and launched in time for the great
assembly which will open with lectures,
concerts and entertainments Aug. 7, and
continue two weeks. Inquirers are com
ing in from various parts of lowa, Wis
consin and Minnesora, and a much larger
attendance will be realized than at Jany of
the other meetings of this year. Special
interest is taken in the lecture to be given
on Romanism by Father O'Connor, of New
York city, Aug. 8.
An interesting incident occurred in the
afternoon meeting. A man from near
Winona said he bad been seeking relig on
for seven years. He had heard of
Mr. Walton, of Grafton, D; k., '
and had telegraphed to lim
to meet him at this meeting. They lad
come the one, ir>o miles, and the otl er,
uOO miles, and had prayed together ; ncl
the man professed his determination to
live a faithful Christian life for thejfuture.
The evening service was opened with a
solo, beautifully rendered by Prof. Ray
mond after which Mr. Hammond led in
prayer. The congregation then sang,
"Twas there he suffered on the tree."
"Geo. Phitfried said," remarked Mr.
Hammond, "We are sound in three ways:
We are saved meritoriously by Jisus
Christ; instrumentally by faith, and dec
larativelyby works. This is the whole
of it." These points were dis
cussed and were illustrated after
Mr. Hammond's manner with many anec
dotes and various incidents from his
travels in different parts of the world.
The meetings are assuming a greater
degree of enthusiasm, and the attendance
and interest are on the increase. The
camp meeting is to continue a week longer,
and families are urged to come with their
children, as Mr. Hammond, is specially
gifted in the work w<;; a children aud young
people. The serv ices to-day will bo at
iV:3O d. m., 2:30 p. in. and Bp. m. Mr.
Hammond will take part in all the meet
SQfttai persons professed conversion
yesterday. J. D.Blake related an inci
dent that he learned in Indianapolis after
one of Mr. Hammond's meetings. He at
tended a meeting of the Boys' Christian
association, in which fifteen boys stated
that they were converted when so young
that they could not remember the event.
This is regarded as a strong evidence of
the permanence of thi3 work among chil
dren. Others made interesting remarks.
A conversation ensued as to the salvation
of children, and Mr. Hammond's theory,
in which Revs. D. Morgan, E. B. Warner
and others took part. Mr. Hammond re
plied to the question, proposed.
THE ILiiES COURT MARTIAL.
A IJricf Session of the Court Yesterday—
>lore Evidence for the Prosecution.
The Ilges court martial held a brief ses
sion yesterday. After reading the pro
ceedings of Wednesday, the judge advocate
reported to the court his action in sending
a telegram to Major Maginnis, of Montana,
and the reply of that gentleman that he
would start for St. Paul on the 23d or 24th
Major Myrick was then sworn, and tes
tified as to the existence of the August,
November and December pay accounts of
Col. Ilges, and offered in evidence certified
copies of the same. He was interrupted
by the accused, who objected to the intro
duction of papers of whose existence he had
no knowledge, and which had not been
shown to him. He offered to show the
original accounts for these months, which
were in his possession, and waiving his ob
jections the certified copies were filed.
The accused asked the qestion: "What
is your duty as judge advocate in the pre
sentation of documentary evidence?"
Answer — "To introduce original papers
as evidence, and if not accessible, to ob
tain true certified copies of the same."
Question — "Have you taken any steps to
obtain those original accounts?"
Answer — "On or about July 10th I served
notice on Mr. Scheffer for true copies.
The prosecution here closed and short
ly after again opened by recalling
Major Smith, who was asked if subsequent
to theipayment of those accounts to the
banking house of Spyer & Co., any other
demands had been made for their pay
The accused objected on the ground
that any person without authority might
make such a demand, and that the question
was too general and vague. The judge
advocate said he proposed to prove by the
witness that there was an application
made for payment, and why the accounts
were not seen by the paymaster.
The accused asked that no member of
the court form an opinion prejudicial to
him, based on any expression of the judge
The court then considered with
flossed doors the objection of
the accused, and decided not
to sustain it. The witness then answered
that sometime in January last Gen. John
son had called and asked if the November
and December accounts opuld be collected.
The court asked if Gen. Johu-ou hau
any authority to apply for payment of
Answer — Don't know that ho had.
Question by the court — Did Gen. John
son have these accounts in his possession?
Answer — If he had he did not show them
to mo. I don't know that he had.
Gen. R. W. Johnson was then called for
the prosecu tion, and testified that the pay
accounts of Col. Ilges were never gin his
hands, and that he never saw them. He
was requested at one time to ask Major
Smith if they could be collected. He had
no interest in the accounts other than
Col. Ilges asked that the paymaster gen
eral of the army be summoned as a wit
ness. The court required him to make affi
davit stating the reason why he
wished him, before they would grant the

Mary Coveran, an intelligent Irish girl
sadly addicted to liquor, was in court for
being drunk. The charge was brought by
her father and an elder sister. This was
a sad case — one which enlisted the sympa
thies of many spectators, and the fine im
posed by the court — ninety days under the
excellent care of the sisters of the House
of Good Shepherd — was humane
and considerate. Mary's mother
was sent up only a few days
ago for a term of sixty days on a similar
charge, The family came to St. Paul only
two years ago from Winona, and consisted
" of man and wife and four daughters, three
of whom are excellent young ladies, whe

the younger daughter, Mary, are cursed
with an uncontrollable appetite for strong
drink, and when under its iniluence, are
abusive and quarrelsome toward other
members of the family. Mary doesn't
live at home, but comes around when
these spells come on. and Wednesday was
her day on when she abused her father and
sister to a degree that rendered arrest
A Rare Hobs Steal.
Yesterday about midday, as the hand
some pacer and valuable outfit of Godfrey
Siegenthaler, attorney-at-law of Bridge
square, was standing by that gentleman's
office, ready to bear him at a 2:30 gait to
his noontide meal, a man stepped from
the sidewalk, deliberately unhitched the
Rams and took his seat in the elegant
coupe. Handling the ribbons with profes
sional skill and applying the whip with
scientific dexterity, he essayed to try the
pace of the rare hoss, but unaccustomed to
such persuasive arguments the legal p&
gasus proved himself a rare hoss in verity,
for he stood almost upright with astonish
ment. The whip, however, descending
lithe and sinuous, brought him down from
his soarings and to the realities of mun
dane affairs. With audden energy the fiery
steed bent to his work, and dashed around
the corner onto Wabashaw street at a speed
which eclipsed any of his previous record.
Dashing along in. front of a street car,
whichr by the way, slowed up
to admire fully the noble "Hippolex,"
in his mad career till he reached the Opera
house, when he jwas brought to a sudden
stand-still by the cycles of the coupe be
coming obstructed by the loose earth of
the street. At thi3 point the happy pos
sessor of the fleet and fleeing steed had his
attention drawn to the soen9 by a Globe
reporter, who, happening to drop in (as
they always drop in when great events are
about to befall). " Either your horse is not
accustomed to your driver, or your driver
to your horse, Mr. Siegenthaler," said] the
reporter. "My horse ! who has my
horse?" replied the owner of the swell
turn-out, rushing to tho window. In a
second his hat was placed extinguisher-like
over his legal cranium, and with three steps
he was in the streeL, half a dozen mere
carried him, with coat-tuil3 standing out
longitudinally behind, up to the side of
the valued and valuable animal, which
gave a winny of recognition, with a certain
tone, however, of distress and injury, at
the same time winking his le.ft ear back
with indignation toward the buggy seat.
The seat, however, was vacant, the driver
having leaped to the ground and sped off
in the direction of Third street. * Here,
however, he was brought to a halt by the
polite attention of officer Bahe, who ac
companied him to the hotel de ville, where
he will remain a gue3t till Mr. Siegen
thaler obtains the legal opinion of Judge
Burr as to whether tho little affair was tak
ing a lark or stealing a horse and buggj\
