ST. PAUL, WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 22. 1888.
An auction sale -of 1,000,000 acres of
pubEc lands is being held in the St. Cloud
land office district and the tales thus far
average $3.35 per acre.

It is understood that the "Kunnel" will
issue two editions of his paper containing
a report of the Villard reception in St.
Paul, and a 'few hundred copies'' will be
Bent to -Minneapolis with the reception
omitted. The "Kunnel" will make the
announcement at the next meeting of the
chamber of commerce and this will render
it-unnecessary to lie about it after the
■double edition has been circulated.
The New York World expresses proper
and unmeasured indignation at the conduct
of the scoundrel who recently cat the sig
nal wire of the cable railway on the Brook-
bridge, and calls for the severest pun
ishment of any rascal who may be detect
ed tampering with the wire. Some villain,
it is believed, is malicious enough to at
tempt to produce a repetition of the fear
ful catastrophe of Decoration day in the
■narrow passageway on the big bridge.

and protection of the police, apply to the chief,

each inmate. The prosecuting attorney is a

system will have to be abandoned.
If the chief of police of St. Paul has
ever made such an araangement as is re

done it very quietly, so quietly in fact,
that neither the public nor the gamblers

What a paltry set of shysters to govern
the United States !
Hon. A. Bierman, the Democratic nom
inee for Governor, was in the city in con
sultation with friends yesterday. He has
decided to accept the nomination tendered
him and in due time will formally respond
to the official notice of the chairman of
the State Central committee of his nomi
nation. Mr. Bierman will make an earnest
canvass and if he is given practical work
ing assistance the result may prove quite
a surprise. But it will be an agreeable
ARTHUR AS A POSSIBILITY.
"The newspapers generally have engaged
in a discussion as to the claims of Presi
dent Arthur to the Republican nomination
for the presidency next year, and as a mat
ter of course there is much diversity of
opinion on the subject. As time progress
es, however, and one after another of the
"available men" in the party disappear
from..view — some buried by circumstances
over which they had no control and otheis
by their own indiscretions — Mr. Ar
thur comes to be looked upon with more
favor, and is now discussed with a great
deal of earnestness not only as a possibili
ity but a probability for 1884 .
What Mr. Arthur's qualifications for the
office of chief executive of the nation are
it will puzcle most discriminating people
to discover. It is not what he has done
during his incumbency of the office that is
urged in his behalf, but what he has left
undone — negative rather than his posi
tive qualities. It is urged that he ha 3 had
ample opportunities to commit many
serious if not fatal blunders, but has
avoided them by doing nothing. There
have been chasms to bridge, and he has
bridged them by simply permitting the
torrents of ill-feeling that raged between
their banks to dry up or exhaust them
selves in fruitless lashing on the shores .
Such qualities may adapt a man for the
administration of affairs of state in the
eyes of a few, but will not commend him
to a majority of intelligent American citi
zens. We do not want a man in the first
place in the nation who is merely a pas
sive instrument of circumstances, but a
man possessed of positive personal force
of character; one who meeting events can
control them; one who can bend circum
stances to a purpose and that purpose the
well-being of the whole people. Mr.
Arthur has shown no ability while in office
that should commend him for a second
term . He has devoted his days to the
routine business of the office and his
nights to carousals with a few
boon companions. He has been too cow
ardly to meet the dissensions in his own
party, and save in the veto of the infa
mous river and harbor bill of two years
ago, he has manifested but little regard
for the public interests. He has been
simply a dummy — a puppet controlled by
men of stronger intellectual force. If he
should be elected for another term there
is no guarantee that he would manifest
any more force of character than he has
done in the past, and the administration
would be permitted to continue in its
course, managed by subordinates and
with only a nominal head. What we need
in the office of president is a strong man,
independent of all political factions and
with force of character enough to assert
his right, to discharge his trust in such a
manner as would conduce to the best in
terest of the whole people.
One of the greatest blunders, if not a
crime, ever perpetrated by any party,
was that of the Republicans after emanci
pation and the close of the war, in thrusting
citizenship and the ballot upon the ex
slaves, in all their besotted ignorance and
stupidity, mere infants in intelligence,
without any previous preparation by way
of educational enlightment. They
were thus made a prey to
the unscrupulous and designing, and car
pet baggers swarmed all over the south to
delude the ignorant colored race to their
own hurt, that they, the carpet baggers,
might secure place and plunder. Gov
ernment should have made provision for
the education of the colored race before
putting ballots into their hands which
they could not read or understand the full
Henry Clay said, "negro slavery had
been sanctioned and sanctified by two
hundred years of legislation." A sorry
comment on his understanding of sancti
ties. Those years had been years of im
bruiting barbarism thrust upon an abject
race, steeping them in ignorance, making
it a criminal offence even to teach them.
What a high deling for a nation to
turn out millions of cruelly imbruited slaves
into freedom, with the shackles removed
from their limbs, but with no effort to
remove the shackles of ignorance from
their minds. And this criminal neglect
has run on for some twenty years, and yet
this debased element in the social, educa
tional and political life of the republic,
has ,been admitted to the full
exercise - of political power, the
power of the ballot, without any due or
proper estimate of its responsibilities.
This is one of the glaring and inex
cusable sins of a party that lays claim
flagrantly to all the intelligence, refine
ment and respectability of the land.
Teach the holder of a ballot how
to use it before placing
it in his hand. Give
him some sense of his rights, and enlight
enment enough to form an opinion
of his own, before clothing him
with a franchise, that he may be led by
designing men to use to his own harm.
That the colored people have been dam
aged rather than benefited by plac
ing the ballot in their hands
without any educational preparation
there can be no denial. Demagogues and
scoundrels have profited by their ignor
anse, and caused suffering, abuse, perse
cution and murder, because men refused
to be trampled into the dust socially and
politically by barbarian ignorance, con
trolled and guided by corrupt men. The
colored people have been set back for
years, in the line of improvement and
elevation by this censurable treatment by
those who boast of being their friends.
The elective franchise is the safegaurd
only of an intelligent people, who are capa
ble of forming opinions for themselves,
who know their rights and how to main
tain them. Put the ballot into the hands
of the ignorant, and they become the
tools of demagogues, and are blindly led
to their own undoing, as well as to the do
ing of great public harm.
An educational qualification for the bal
lot, is an absolute necessity to the safety
of a free, elective government. The
party in power have last
sight of this great fact; its only end
and purpose seeming to be, how best to
perpetuate its own power, not how to in
sure the greatest good to the greatest num
ber. Such a party ought to be disci
plined by stripping from it a power which
it has abused, and of which, in almost
every regard it has shown itself unworthy.
While the mass of the emancipated
"Freedmen, - " as they are loftily called,
were thus steeped in densest ignorance, by
the great crime of oppression,it is but just
to say there are, and always have been,
bright and shining exceptions,
where in spite of all , the
disadvantages of the condition of servitude
men have arisen in the scale of intelli
gence, making them .worthy, not only of
the free exercise of the ballot, but of
official recognition. These exceptions
show the capability attainable by the
race, with due opportunity, for improve
It is not too late for the government to
redeem some of its obligations to the lately
oppressed, and it may well be hoped the
time is not distant when the proper rights
of all shall be recognized and protected.

The v. i: R. Authorities lent) the South
eastern Railway Impeachment.
Messrs. George Stephen, Donald A.
Smith and Duncan Mclntyre write- as fol
lows to the Montreal Witness: "We ob
serve in your paper an article headed "The
Southeastern Railway," in which, after
describing the alleged agreement with the
Canadian Pacific Railway company, you
state it was further agreed between us and
Messrs. Barlow and Chaffee that the South
eastern should be sold to the Canadian
Pacific for $5,000,000, the difference be
tween the price paid Mr. Barlow and that
sum to be divided between us, Mr. Bar
low and Mr. Chaffee. Without discussing
the correctness or incorrectness of the
other portions of your article, we have to
state as to this that it is absolutely false in
every particular, and that we never made
or contemplated any such arrangement or
any arrangement by which any profit
would have accrued to us from the Cana
dian Pacific Railway company out of any
transaction in connection with the South
The X. P. Passenger Department.
The Globe of yesterday noted the pro
posed promotion and extension of the
duties of Geo. K. Barnes, Esq., the general
passenger agent of the Northern Pacific.
This change involves the divhijn of the
labor of the department and renders
an assistant an imperative necessity. The
Globe also noted that the position of
superintendent of passenger traffic from
Helena east had been tendered to Mr.
W. H. Dixon, Northwestern passenger
agent of the Milwaukee & St. Paul road.
Mr. Dixon returned from Milwaukee yes
terday, where he went to consult the man
agement of his road, and has decided to
decline the very flattering offer. There
was a report that the position had been
tendered Mr. H.C.Davis, assistant general
passenger agent of the Manitoba, but in
vestigation proved that the report was
utterly without the slightest foundation.
The travel on the roads is rather light,
especially from the east.
Col. Flournoy, of the lumber line, left
esterday afternoon for Kansas and
Nebraska, to be absent six or eight days.
Mr. W. H. Lowe, general baggage agent
of the Northern Pacific road, has taken up
his quarters in the basement of the general
office building in St. Paul, Heretofore
Mr. Lowe has made his headquarters at
Harvesting is progressing on the
Northern Pacific road very satisfactory,
and the yield will be very much larger
than was expected. . Many fields will yield
twenty-three bushels to the acre and even
more, and the general average will be not
less than twenty bushels.
A meeting of railroad officials repre
senting the Grand Trunk, Central Ver
mont, Northern, Concord & Lowell rail
roads has been held at St. Albans, Vt., to
arrange for a fast freight and passenger
service between Boston and Chicago. The
arrangement goes into effect August 20,
and passenger trains will run through in
The railroads in the state should bear in
mind the law in regard to transporting
game out of the state. It reads as follows:
"It is unlawful for any person or corpor
ation to carry out of the state, or have in
possession for the purpose of carrying out
of the state, any game, : bird or animal,
under penalty, on conviction, of imprison
ment or fine of $100 for each offense."

that he will transfer his residence to this

19: Col. Lamborn arrived last evening,

who are interested in this matter (and

they take a direct interest in the matter
by subscribing for a portion of the stock,

IT WAS HIGB.-TOXED.
A Wedding Celebrated With High Honors
in the Municipal Court Yesterday.
At most times the municipal court is a
grewsome place, where sin and crime re
ceives its punishment, but occasions do
occur when all this is changed, when the
honorable judge relaxes his judicial bear
ing and the real man shines forth from
behind the gloomy veil which the preva
lency of simple drunks, etc., compels him
to wear, occasions when Clerk Fairchild
smooths his ruffled brow and chats pleas
antly with the young attorney lost in the
mazes of his first law suit. When the
manly figure of Baliff Clouse seems to
round into graceful curves, and the whis
perers in the corner are punished only by
a good humored warning; where even the
dignified Dowlan assumes an easy attitude
and slyly winks at the new policeman.
This was the condition of things yester
day morning and came about as follows:
L. S. Ball wooed and won Miss Laura
Stiles; he had courted her by the side of
the sounding sea, i. c. White Bear lake,
but just as
"The feast is set,
The guests are met,**
a huge wave of iniquity swept over Ball,
' and he refused to tie his affections any
longer to that stile, and he averred that
had it not been for the lake and the moon
light, he never would have attempted to
cross the stile. At this juncture the ser
vices of Judge Burr were called into ser
vice, and after some persuasion, Ball ad
mitted that he did still, when the moon
was full, feel the same tender regard for
Laura that he did when he first whispered
sweet nothings in her ear, and that for his
part, if the court was willing, he would
gladly undertake to shield her hereafter
from the storms and tempests of life.
Then it was that the court relaxed, as we
have described. A scene of sadness was
changed into one of joy. The court look
ed at County Attorney Egan, who
immediately arose and made
a few appropriate and eloquent
remarks, his handsome face having almost
an inspired expression as he said that the
offspring of this union should be
"Iron sinewed, suple jointed,
They should dive and they should run,
Catch the wild goat by the hair
And hurl their lances in the sun."
Assistant City Attorney O'Brien then
stepped forward and presented the groom,
to be used on the occasion, a heavy gold(?)
ring, which soon encircled the finger of
the blushing Laura. Then, his rich voice
tremulous with emotion, Judge Burr, with
all the people standing, read the marriage
services, and the happy pair were one,
and after the usual salutation to the bride
which, in the municipal court, is always
administered by Clerk Fairchild, the com
pany dispersed, each one feeling that he
hrd not lived entirely in vain.

is arranged for this afternoon, the oppo
nents of the home club being the Union
Pacifies, of Omaha. The pitcher of this
club is Saulsbury, who filled that position
for the old Red Caps, when that club was
in its prime. The club with which he is
now connected is a strong or
ganization, as shown by their easy
defeat the other day of the Chicago
Unions, whose fame and strong play dur
ing their late visit to St. Paul and Minne
apolis, won for them enthusiastic praise
from admirers of the game. With the
addition to the playing strength of the
Reds, by the acquisition of Horan, for
merly of the Unions, as the regular
pitcher, the home team are playing a
strong game, and whether they lose or not,
will do their part to make the game ex
citing from beginning to end.

A Night in the World's Caves.
This unique lecture given last evening
before the Science association in Minne
apolis is to be repeated by reqnest to-mor
row evening at Plymouth church. It em
braces sciopticon views of, Fingall's cave,
Scotland, the Mammoth cave of Kentucky
and other noted caverns. Some of these
views were taken by electric lights. The
lecture is a novel and instructive exhibit
of the marvels of the underground world.
Some people don't know their luck,
which is the same as to say that they can
not bask in the sunshine of prosperity
without receiving a moral sun stroke. One
of these is Frank Winslow, a festive pea
nut and candy butcher on the train. He
lived a gay life and blowed in his surplus
stuff in buying red chips. Yesterday he
i was before the court on the charge of
swindling. His employer explained that
he had appropriated a little money while
under the influence of liquor and that he
did not care to prosecute the case. He
John Pargeson was fined $15 for having
been drunk and disorderly. He went to
the workhouse, had the hose turned on him
and was clipped and shaved, and after
bracing up he came in yesterday and paid
his fine. !■:-: : -
J. Lemon was charged with having been
blind full on tanglefoot. He was squeezed
to the extent of $15.
Frank Gross was charged with peddling
snide finger rings. He bays them for
about $ I a gross and sells them at any
price. He was sent up for sixty days.
George Birmingh cabbaged a coat from
a livery stable and borrowed a case note on
it from mine uncle. He was up on the
charge of larceny, and the October days
will be here when he is released from du

Habbisbubg, Pa., Aug. 21. — Last night
Col. E. Deneal, an aged and respected
citizen of this county, before the war a
member of the house of delegates of the
state senate of Virginia, shot dead a ne

an old couple living alone, were awakened
by a noise and the husband taking a pis

door forced open and a man step into the
room and Deneal immediately fired, the
ball passing directly through the heart.
The negro fell forward on his face not
moving or uttering a sound. The neigh

and dragged the body into the moonlight
on the porch, where it was recognized as
a negro and the feet were muffled in rags
to deaden the sound.

Warren, Ohio, for embezzling $8,000 from
the Second National bank of that place.
He "said he could not account for his

Plymouth, Va., Aug. 21. — A few minutes
before the departure of the 7 o'clock
Raleigh express train this evening, and
while a large number of negro excur
sionists were gathered at the depot here,
a young man pushed his way through the
crowd flourishing a revolver and in an ex
cited manner called upon the people to
get out of his way, and that he would
kill the first man who interfered
with him, and that his father was on
the train and he meant to kill him. He
searched the train and found his father
standing on the platform of the cars and
began firing at him, striking him in the
thigh twice. When questioned he said his
name was A. M. Sydes, living in Phila
delphia, and that he had sworn to kill his
father, D. Sydes, for deserting and slan
dering his mother. He said he followed
his father to New York and thence to Nor
folk. The father says the trouble grew
out of the dissipated habits of his son and
his unsatisfied demands for money. The
wounded man is dangerously hurt.

On next Sunday evening Rev. T. F.
Allen, of the M. E. church of this city, will
give the first of a series of lectures on the
prevailing vices of the day, viz: Gambling,
the social evil and rum. He expresses a
determination to handle his topics with
out gloves and awaken the people to a
sense of the monstrous evils with which
they are surrounded. He will, no doubt,
draw large audiences to hear his views on
the subjects proposed, and his remedies,
for their suppression.
A number of graves near the site of the
capitol were pointed out as those who had
"died with their boots on." They were
the gamblers and desperadoes who located
in Bismarck before he reign of law and
order, and who settled their differences ac
cording to the code of Kentucky and Mis
sissippi. The shot gun, and revolver and.
bowie knife settled their business, and now
they are as peaceful and quiet as the most

The movement inaugurated in south
Dakota for the establishment of a state
government south of the forty-sixth degree
of latitude or of the seventh standard par
allel, is gaining strength every day. Nine
tenths of the people of north Dakota are
in sympathy with the people of south Da
kota in this movement. The only oppo
sition to it comes from the Bismarck ring
and the slaves of the ring throughout the
territory. It is to be hoped that the peo
ple of south Dakota will go right along
with the work they have laid out and ap
ply to the next congress for admision into
the Union. The Republican believes south
Dakota will get in. — [Fargo Republican.
WJiat is it ?
The following telegram appeared in a
recent issue of the Daily Argus, published
Bismabck, Aug. 17.— 1t is reported that
Sheriff McKenzie has been advised by telegraph
from St. Paul that Fargo was making prepara
tions to out do any point on the line in the way
of an exhibition on the day the Villard party
pass over the road. No sooner had Aleck heard
this than he telegraphs to Sheriff Haggart to
hire a dozen good judges and buy up by the car
load a large lot of Red River Valley wheat, oats,
barley, potatoes and the celebrated turnips and
other vegetables grown in Cass county and ship
over to him, so that the banner city display
wiU be at least equal to the Red river valley..
Aleck says he iutends that Bismarck shall do
as well as Fargo if he had to buy and bring over
to the Missouri slope a whole train load of Red
river valley productions.
Mr. Hughes' Danger.
Alex Hughes has been indulging in a
sneer at the delegates elected to the con
stitutional convention, and is reported to
have said the vote was a very light one.
not one in ten voting. Well, Mr. Hughes,
your opinion wasn't asked, and -it » a
matter of very little consequence anyhow.
All you can say or do won't stop the pro
cession, and you are likely to get stepped
on right hard if ycu get in the way.—Alex
It would be hard to tell where the point,
was, were it not for the fact that at tha,
time of the Minneapolis fair last year the
Argus charged Bismarck, which took the.
banner for the finest display of agricul-.
tural production, with coming to Fargo >
and other points in the Red river valley
and purchasing the products with which
to make the display. Will somebody rise,
and explain the facts in the case?
A call was issued some days ago for a
north Dakota convention to meet in Fargo
soon, to consider questions naturally aris
ing out of the effort at division on the
part of south Dakota. The most stress is
laid on the appropriation of the name Da
kota by the southern half, and that fact in
itself will have a tendency to bring a large
a majority of whom will
probably oppose division on that ground.
Besides it is considered desirable to have
several questions of public policy settlod,
and some questions of ring policy will
doubtless come before certain portions of
The papers of north Dakota look at the
convention from various points, but nearly
all urge an attendance, and the adoption
of such peculiar issues as may suit their
locality. It is improbable, however, that
much will be accomplished except to bring
various rings into better working shape.
The Coming Convention.
A large number of prominent politi
cians from various localities in north
Dakota are arriving on every train to at
tend the convention here to-morrow. Mar
quis DeMores, from the trans- Missouri
country, Alex McKenzie, of Bismarck; W.
F. Steele, of Kidder county; E. P. Wells"
Johnson Nickens and J. J. Flint, of James
town; George Walsh and Dr. Scott, of
Grand Forks; Col. O. M. Towner, of Nel
son county, and many others from various
places have signified an intention to be
present, and have either arrived this even
ing, or will be here on the morning trains.
From the general makeup of the crowd
it is believed the convention
will oppose the division of
the territory, as most of them stand in
with Governor Ordway, who is outspoken
against division. Still it is impossible to
tell what will be the outcome of the con
vention, and it is probable that the real
objects at issue have yet to be stated.
What they are will doubtless come to light
in a few days.
