FAUL S FRIDAY, AVfiU&T '24. 1888.
Haeeiet Bezchee Siowii lias commenced
anew novel whichEhe c- .]•• "Bronze Blos
soms," but no hint is givi i whether she is
to take her points from her Florida orchard
blossoms or from the bridal wreaths of
maidens still fairer than they.
Match Akes' letter to the two Bill'b
given elsewhere is lively reading. They
may be great men (in their own esteem.)
but their attempted insult to the mayor
and city council of Minneapolis resulted
in a snub all arou>.d.
Among the anecdotes told of the late
irnineiit jurist, Judge Black, no one more
fully illustrates his capability of turning
the tables on his political opponents than
Vjo following:
Oue day Black was Burrounded by a bevy cf
. friends on the floor of the house,
among the rest Judge Mercur, then the Bradford
i, who turned to him and eaitl:
.. Black, yoa have more friends on this
side nf the 1 onse than on your own. You
ought to be a Republican. If you would join
us we would appreciate you v.i.d give you due
prominence." To which Jndg: Black made
reply that ho knew it all to be true; tho Repub
licans were good fellows; he would like to be
long to *1■ j- 1 ii , and there -.- . one thing iv
the way. "If," he said, "there was r.o hereafter
I would j. in ;' a Republican parly at olco.
Nothing deters me but the fo; t r of hc-li."
B.ICHAED Gbaxt White has apparently
received new light with which he irradiates
the pages of the: recent issue of the North
American Review. The reader will be
surprised to know if he does not know,
that Mr. White is an active Republican,
an ex-officeholder; neither a Democrat, a
rebel, or a "rebel sympathizer." He does
not give) a very attractive view of the
"miney power." To this Dower he at
tributes the war of tha \i\<m. Did the
last fie gold influence in v Jo plan a civil
war, that thrift might 'Yclfiiw blood. Can
Mr. White's view bo t!j^ irucorie ? And
yet he belongs to the pYrly ... ■„• ives'*the

This Ctlobe has already remarked that
Ihe Viliiird reception matter wa3 a mu
nicipal affair. Thb reply of Mayor Ames,
of Minneapolis, to the invitation of Mayor
O'Brien, of St. Paul, is given elsewhere
and settles the entire matter. The mu
nicipal authorities of Minneapolis
accept the invitation to unite
with St. Paul and flatly repudiate
the self constituted committee who
undertook to usurp the prerogatives of the
mayor and council of that city. The St.
J*acl celebration has been a municipal
affair from the outset and it has always
been tho desire that < he municipal author
ities of Minneapolis BhVqM j..,in in the af
fair. As Mayor Am- ' .. .viiialJy accept
ed the invitation >\ ■ ....cri^g 'should
cease. Washburn & C . i > very properly

they had no business, there woujd have
been no trouble.
Tkeee is undue excitement in Minne
apolis and we might say in some quar
ters in Ht. Paul, relative to the manner
and place of entertaining the Villard party
on the 3d of Sept. Just why there should
ba so much perturbation is not easily ex
plainable. St. Paul, the eastern terminus
of the Northern Pacific, desires to
commemorate the completion of the
road by a celebration, which includes the
extension of the hospitalities of the city to
Mr. Villard and his party of distinguished
companions. Of course the city govern
ment cannot expend the public funds for
an entertainment except in the city and it
would not be the hospitality of St.Paul that
was extended if Fargo, Bis
marck or come other locality
•hould be chosen for the affair.
Our citizens, as individual*, can banquet
Mr. Villard and party at Hotel Lafayette
or Chicago if agreeable to all concerned,
but it simply makes it a private affair and
not a city matter. The people of St. Paul
endorse the action or th» city government
in extending the hospitality of the city to
the Villard parly and trust his programme
will enable him to accept. The courtes-y cf
ihe invitation will have been extended in any
event, and if our hoped for visitors aro not
able to be present, it will l ,)s n matter of
regret but will Dot prevent the dae observ
ance of the memorable event. The talk of
discourtesy is a marvel. When President
Arthur passes through here next week, it
certainly would j^ot ba discourteous to in
vite him to attend a public entertainment
at the state house. It would be for him to
determine whether disclination or prior
arranireirent would prevent his acceptance.
The rises are parallel, as far as etiquette
and coutesy ara concerned.
DORSET'S BJBVJELJLCZOXS.
If Do rsey's statements in regard to the
Republican mauaeement of the Presiden
tial campaign of 18S0 are true, the leaders
of that party wera guilty of the most
flagitious profligacy ever known in . the
history of American politics. Did he tell '
the truth? If not, why do men implicated
remain in silenao and not refute such
blistering charges as he has made. If they
are refutable, why not refute them? It is
not enough to say in a general way, that
Dorsty lies, and go no further. He gives
names and circumstantial details suscep
tible of refutation, if they are not true.
Do not the men implicated owe it to them
selves and their party to give
seme rebu'.ial utterance under scoh
tremendous charges of corruption, if they
can?
If Dorsey's statements are true, the
elective franchise was corrupted, thfl elec
tij-:i was carried by money furnished by
millionaires, the presidency itr-elf was
bought, and a seat on tho bench of the
supreme court of the United States was
purchased.
Dorpey vras the honored and trusted
leader of tho party. By his energy and
sagacity, by his placing, especially in
Indiana, hundreds of thousands of dollars
of contributed money where they would do
the most good, the election was woe.
It is too late now to say
that his statements are of no
acco ant, and unworthy of notice. Did not
ex-Senator Thomas C. Platt, (Mr. uonk
ling's colleague in iho senate, and who re
signed with him) take §100,000 to Indian
apolis, and place the amount in Dorsey's
hands? And after the , election, did
not Vice President Arthur, now Acting
President, join in a great ovation to Doraey
for his distinguished aud successful ser
vices ?
It i 3 idle to say that the revelations of
tho star route trials have ruined the char
acter of Dorsey. Arthur and other lead
ers, and even Garneld himself, knew as
much about Dorset's connection with the
star route as the public now knows. And
jet Dorsey was actually offered a Beat in
the new cabinet. If he had not forfeited
respect then he has not since. It is base
in Arthur, Matthew.-*, Platt and others to
desert him now.
It cannot bo denied, as unwel
come as is the admission, that Garueld's
reputation is Buffering by these latter day
revelations, and charges of bargain aud
corruption. Time was when the nation
bowed in grief aud mourning at the grave
oE tho murdered president. Men every
where, without distinction of party, horri
fied at his terrible fate, vied with each
other to do him honor. Monuments were
projected to embalm his memory, aud as
expressive of the public sorrow.
How is all this changed. The revela
tions cf corruption Bmirch Gven his
name. In regard to tha erecting of monu
ments the people have become apathetic.
The rearing of a monument in St. Louis
was projected to cost §4,000, ia one dol
lar subscriptions. Readily $3,000 were
raised, and then the subscriptions slopped.
Months have elapsed and the dead halt re
mains. Where GarSeld received 2G,500 votes
from the citizens cf St. Louis, can not
4,000 be found wiJling to pay one dollar
each to erect a monument to his honor?
And worst of all, now comes forwarl a
citizen of St. Louis, and proposes that
the project of a monument be a baud once?,
jind that the $3,000 subscribed and paid,
bo divided among the different
orphan asylums of the city. What docs
this indicate? It indicates, (^?d we can
not write it without a pang) thut in the
opinion of many who honored and trusted
him, tne revelations as to his personal and
political character, render it problematical
whether he deserves the honor of a monu
ment.
Garfield is in his grave. Ho i?
not hsro to vindicate himself. Have not
Arthur and Matthews andPlatt and others,
who know ail about those charges
and revelations, manliness, honor,
and pense of justice enough
to step forward and vindicate the name of
the elaughtered president, who cannot
Bpaak for himself, from foul and damaging
aspersions? Do they not owe it to them
seives to cast these charges of cor
ruption from them if they can?
It is but just to say that Dorsey nojwhere
inculpates the character of Garfield, but
speaks of him with tenderness and respect.
But Matthews, Arthur and others impli
cated wrap themselves in stolid silence,
and do nothing to turn aside the poisoned
javelins of the editor of the
Sun and others that follow the track of the
assassin's bullet, to slaughter the reputa
tion, as that did the body of a martyr, who
fell a victim to as dire a cabal of political
corruptionists as ever cursed any country
in the history of the world.
Can the people, will tho pejple longer
trust with supreme power this gaug of ex.
ecutive, judicial and official corraption
ists?
COMPLETING THE N. P.
Ami Perfecting tli« Arrangements for tho
Celebration at the Eastern Terminus,
Otherwise St. Taul.
The most important meeting, so far, in
connection with the arrangements for the
entertainment of Villard party and the
celebration of tho completion of
the Northern Pacific railroad was
held in the council chamber
yesterday forenoon, when the committee
on reception and programme held a long
and busy session. The session was strict
ly private, and it is neither possible nor
desirable that the proceedings should be
giyen in detail, as a promature publication
of the facts might seriously retard the
work of the committee. This mdeh may
be said, however, that the work of perfect
ing the varied details is now well or
ganized and under way, and
what is more important, it
was decided at yesterday's session, that as
St. Paul had taken the initiative, and that
as the right of celebrating the event pro
perly belonged to hor as being tho eastern
terminus of the road to, make the affair
the distinctive compliment of this city,
and at the same time to invite neighbor
ing cities to participate in the festivities.
This decision was reached after
a lontj and serious discussion, and
measures wera at once taken on a more
extended scale to consuraate arrangements
to this effect At present the programme
cr.n not be piven in detail, bnt it will in
clude a grand banquet, a procession and a
display of fireworks in the evening. Busi
ness will, of course, be suspended, the
streets and park will be illuminated and
decorated with flags and arches and in short
it will be such a gala occasion as has never
been witnessed before in St. Paul. The
committee on the reception of German
guests held a meeting yesterday afternoon
and arranged preliminaries. This morn
ing another meeting of the committee on
reception and programme will be held.
lMiea.
As an exponent of the higher and more
elevated walks of the drama, M'lle Rhea,
who commences her engagement at the
Opera house next Tuesday evening, has
won an enviable reputation in the roles
essayed, and her portrayals of character
are marhed by a rare charm and finish.
In speaking of her it has been conceded as
Hazlitt said of Mrs. Jordan, that nature
had formed in her most prodigal humor.
Her face, her tones, her manners were irre
sistible; her smile had the effect of sun
shine, and her laugh did one good to hear
it; yet withal she gave a strength and ear
uestness to the lines that, despite her
peculiar Parisian accent, always carried
the dialogue home.

CHICAGO.
[Special Telegrcm to tho Gioba.J
Chicago, 111., An*. 23.— Extreme apathy
j characterized our markets to-day, and
hardly enoajjh business was done to es
tabiish quotations. L'oreign news was
depressing but lighter receipts at this
I>oint counterbalanced that influence. The
flactuatiobs in grain have not exceeded a
quarter of a cent, and the close is not
materially different from the opening.
Provisions have been a trilie more active,
with tho advantage with the bears, A de
cline of nearly 25s on pork, of 303 oa rib?,
and 20j on lard was suffered, although the
business uoae was light. Otherwise there
tfere no features of interest whatso
ever.
Tho wheat pit ruled quiet throughout
the day. A quiet feeling again prevailed
in ibis market and prices which averaged a
shade easier ruled steady, with fluctuations
confined vithiu a small ran;-;e. But few
outside orders wore received
and some of these liraited at
prices just a Bhade niidcr the figures rul
ing so that they could not be executed, al
though in soma instances a few trades
may have been made at the limits set.
Still trading was so li^ht some orders re
mained unfilled. Tho receipt?, wore only
moderate r.nd tha weather cool and fav
orable for harvest work. Foreign advices
quoted cosh wheat dull and cargoes heavy
and weather brilliant. Prices fluctuated
within a range of %o and closed about } L <c
lower than yesterday. The charters to
day were 125 ; G00 bushels. Winter wheat
was in free demand on shipping account.
The receipts were small ana business wa3
somewhat restricted on this account.
The Hour market was quiet and eter.'ly.
There was some deia?.Ed from local job
bers for choice bakers' and patent Hours,
and these are ruling steady with
a tendency to higher prices.
Shippers are doing little, but few are now
being received, though r.fc the same timo
desirable shipping grades are rather
Bcarce. Low grades aro mostly wanted
for export and especially the better class.
Millers rre advising their morchanLs to
hold choico family Hour firmly, and in
soma instances 25s above the views of
buyers.
The corn pit was more quiet and trad
ing dragged slowly during most of the
session. Shippers made some purchases
of rejected and high mixed. But the de
mand for cash No. 2 \va-> mostly specula
tive and for iha purpose of filling August
sales. The speculative trading was light,
not many outside orders being received.
Tho feeling was easier. Early prices were
a shade better, ruling about %@}£c over
the closing prices of yesterday, but later
prices eased off about %c and then ruled
easy for come time, and finally closed
quiet at about the same as yesterda y.
The weather was cooler and receipts a trifle
smaller. Foreign advices quoted corn
firm. No. 2 was in moderate demand,
chiefly speculative, and sold sparingly at
51%overy early down later to 51c and
closed at 51^c The charters were 361,
--000 bushels.
Oats were dull and weaker. The ship
ping demand was inadequate to the cash
offerings, and the speculative demand wa3
also limited. An easy feeling prevailed,
and trade was dragging nil through the
session. As compared with yesterday's
dosing quotations prices ranged %@%c
lower for near deliveries, and longer
deliveries wer*i lower. Sample
lots were slow, and the freight engaged
were but 15,000 bushels.
Rye was holding up well for cash and
the futures, and there was quite a good
trade for the day. The increased arrivals
were quickly taken at prices current. Ves
sel room for G4,000 bushels was engaged.
Barley was quiet and plow, with little
call for cash lots, and a dull tone in the
speculative market.
Ther3 was very little business transacted
in the market for hog products, and a weak
and unsettled feeling prevailed. The hog
market was weak and prices ruled lower,
while the reports from foreign and eastern
provision markets showed no material
changes. The receipts of products were
fair and the shipments of all kinds quite
liberal.The offerings on speculative account
were fair and the demand light. The
shipping inquiry was moderate and the
inquiry chiefly for small quotations. The
market opened rather weak, and prices
were on a declining scale during the
greater portion of the session and closed
rather tame. Only a light business was
reported in the market for mess pork.
Speculators were lot inclined to do much
trading, and shippers were favored with
few orders. The offerings were not very
large. The markets opened rather weak
at 2fo''<7.")C decline, and gradually receded
15 j} "JOe further, and closed comparatively
steady at the decline. Cash in light re
quest and quotable at $12.05@12.15. The
offerings of lard were moderate, and there
was i o particular urgency iv th 3 demand.
Speculators were not doing
much and shippers were favored with fair
orders. Prices ruled weak and declined
15@20c per 100 pounds and closed steady
at the reduction. Cash in fair demand
and sold at $8.50.
Prices current this evening are October
pork $12.20 bid; October lard §8.40; Octo
ber corn sO^£@sO2£c; October wheat
$1.04i 4 .
The feeling is weak and the tendency
seems to ba downwards. It is probable val
ues will be somewhat lower to-morrow
unless some bullish influence intervenes.
At the stock yards to-day the receipts
of hogs were somewhat larger than the
previous days of the week, and prices
ruled weak and 5@ 10c lower for light and
heavy grades. A few lets of Singer's sold
at §6, but were strictly assorted. Sales
ranged from $5. The quality of the offer
ings was good. The receipts
were 12.500 head. There was
an active market for good to choice grades
of shipping steers, and prices ruled firm
and steady, with a good demand existing
for good cattle for dressed meats purposes.
The demand was good for common 7 cows
at full yesterday's figures. There wore a
few sales of Texas steers, but prices ruled
weak and lower. The market was active,
steady and firm for best qualities. Tug
estimated receipts for the day are 7.500
head.
HEW YORK.
I Special Telegram to tha Globe.]
NewYoek, An?. 23.— There was a de
pressed feeling pervading Wall street to
day* as if engendered by the fear of some
one being in trouble, and the chief feature I
on the stock exchange was tha boar raid on
the Villard stocks. The market opened
weak, feverish and lower, and Northern
Pacific and Oregon Transcontinental, in
which the trading interest chiefly centered,
were weak from tho first, causing tb.3 rest
of the list to weaken decidedly in sym
pathy. When the drive was made at
Northern Pacific it broke down 1 cent, j
while the preferred lost 1% cents and Ore- j
eon Transcontinental declined 1% cents.
The market became irregular but contin
ued in weakness. All sorts of stories were
afloat. One was that Henry Smith, being
a bull on the other stocks, had sold the
Villards short iv large blocks as a hedge.
Another was that Sdge had gone
short of a largo amount of
these stocks. There is official
authority for stating that no equipment
bonds for the Northern Pacific have been
or will be issued. The company has all
the funds necessary to build and equip the
road. Tna announcement of the joining
of the tracks from east to west was made
to-day.
A prominent broker bought largely of
Oregon Transcontinental, and turned and
sold the entire lot at %to %o below the
purchase price. This operation excited
considerable curiosity, and was supposed
to be for Connors account. It shows the
desperate and costly methods of the bears
in their vicious attacks upon the Villard
properties. The grangers and coalers |
were suppressed for a time. Tho Vauder- I
bilts changed but little. Jersey, Reading
and St. Paul were hammered down in the
absence of support. The bears circulated
reports of a stringent money market
in Philadelphia, and reported difficulty in
obtaining loans thero on Jersey and
Reading. It appears that everything ves
sibla is being done to sustain Western
Union. It is rumored that tha presidency
of Denver will be tendered to Lovejoy,
formerly of the Adams Express company, j
Denver Western bonds were depressed by
tha rumor that the interest, amounting to
about $200,000, due September Ist, will
be defaulted. However, friends of Denver
say that the needed funds will ba ready
on time. Denver gained strength upon a
later report that Tickles, chief engineer on i
the Union Pacific, would be made presi
dent. This 13 understood to be a movement
to give Gould control of the property.
There was no pressure to sell good divi
dend stocks, and no amounts of them
could be bought. There was some very
good buying of St. Paul. Lake Shore was
broken down at 1.04%. The very best
of * buyers came in with sealed
orders of every J£c down. There
was a very good borrowing demand for
most stocks during the morning. During
the early hoars the bears hammered and
raided with the evident intention of mak
ing prices as low as possible for all their
sales. After tho first two hours the Eiarket
was very dull and showed a recovery, clos
ing firm, with the same parties trying to
purchase that were selling the market
early in the day. Gould brokers bought
t Union Pacific at the opening. Denver
I earnings for the third week of August
increased $50,000. ."^
The feeling was better during the after
noon and transactions were light. The
bears seemed to be tatisfied with their
morning's labors. We note come good
buying of the better class of stocks. Im
provements during the closing half hour
carried many stocks to abort the best
figures of the day. When we compare the
final sales with those of last even
ing the amount of damage done after
all is but trifling. New Jersey
Central and Reading were weak, but
appeared to have no influence oa tho rest
of the list. The market closed firm, with
Northwestern gaining Jfc, St. Paul }jc,
Omaha }£c, Omaha preferred le, Denver
<fc Rio Grande lc, Oregon Navigation vie,
while Oregon Transcontinental lost Jga,
Northern Pacific }.jc, Northern Pacific pre
ferred %{c, Jersey Central J{c, Northern
Pacific scrip was quoted at HS^.Uj -JOe, Ifu
foal Union bonds 78% @ 80c, Oregon im
provement bonds 90@91c.
It was reported there is difficulty in
equalizing the tonnaga in the trunk line
pool. Interested parties are working for
harmonious relations between the Gould
Southwestern aud Yanderbilt systems.
Some people suspect that this report is
circulated to help Gould stocks. Jersej
<fc Reading are reported in a prosperous
condition.
STILL MISSING.
A St. Louis Lass Who Disappeared From

From.
[Special Telegram to the Globe.]
" St. Louis, Mo., Aug 23. — The anxiety
felt by the friends of Miss Mary Churchill,
who disappeared from her home | some
days ago is onreleaved by any tidings
whatever. It usually happens that two
days' publicity in the newspapers and
search by the police develop at least a
clue in the case of a damsel's ■ pear
ance, but in this case it na3 ijoi done so.
Considerable excitement attended by
divers evening paper extras was caused
this afternoon by a report that iiits Chur
chill had beta seen during
the day at JerseyviiSe
in company with a tall blonde young man
to whom she was quietly married by a
justice of the pence there. Ths family of
Miss Chorchill, though great]] -rise.!
and very anxious to know who thoyounr
man in the case is, were ?tii! verj much
relieved at the news, Their relief was
destined to short life, however. It turned
out that the suspected bride and groom
at Jerseyville were a runaway match from
Greenfield. A coastablo i.v.d come on after
the bride, Miss Ida M. Allen, but arrived
after the marriage was over. The jouug
couple came to St. Louis to-night and are
considerably bothered at the notoriety
they had suddenly achieved, but there is
no news from the missing Churchill lass,
and not oven a theory as to her where
abouts.

Fending business commnni between

have demonstrated feasibility of invention

as rapidly as tho same amount •>; business
could bo sent by the M«rae Eystem of

Hoadly's Democracy as of the sort that
should jive hi in preference in a party who
had served it faithfully for years. It is
generally understood that Homily is after
trie presidency, and there are Democrats
who think he ia not entitled to
such a distinction as the gubernatorial
and presidential nomination*. There is
a good deal of feeling-against Hoadiy ami
dissatisfaction in the Democratic party of
O.iio. There is no defection in the Ra
p.iblicfin party now. Tha ranks are
0 oeing up and the party is moving .iloug
solidly and harmoniously. But the Ohio
Democracy are not as hirmoaicu-? as they
have been. As to McDonald and Hen
dricks, Mr. New "said: 'The Democratic
rPutirneut is that Hendrioks has had his
day. The Indiana Democrats have stood
by him throughout his career and Mc-
Donald has been one of his most valuable
and loyal supporters. The feeling now is
that Hendricks should stand back and
give McDonald a chance. I have no
doabt that McDonald will nave the coi-di-il
support of Indiana Democracy in the
coming canvass, He i 3 regarded as enti- i
tied to it and will get it. j
INDIANA POLITICS.
Beprejpntative Stockslager was inter
viewed to-day on Indiana politics which
| are pretty quiet at present. In regard to
next year's gubernatorial nominations he
said: Ex-Gov. Dray is being talked of
more prominently than any other so far.
He is th« only man who seems to bo mak
ing a fight for the nomination. He would
be a strong candidate if nominated, but I
think Representative Holman could be
easily nominated if he would announce his
willingness to be a candidate. Ha is very
strong over the whole state and especially
in the sou! hern part. A good many Dem
ocrats tiro speaking of him, and I believe
he coald get the nomination and bo elected
comparatively easy. Bat I don't know
that Judtre Holman could be induced to
accept. He is one of the best members
of the house of representatives. Mr.
Stockslager thought Air. Dana's talk
aboct Hoiman and the presidency was in
good faith, and not merely intend to
create obstacles in ex-Senator McDonald's
■wp.y. Hesuid. '-I know th it Dana is an
ardent 'irer of Holman, that they p.re
personally very warm friends, that Dana
btjUeves in Holman'i manner of legisla
tion, that he believes Holman one of tho
most learned members in the house, end
that he could very consistently pay all he
has said, Judge Holm i? determined to
ir.ake ft h:;rd right to recover to the public
domain the unearned l.ir.d grants" Of
ccurs-.' the Northern Pacific will have se
cured title to its grants, but an attempt
attended probably with success vi!l ]
be made to dislodge Iha titte r.ud I
declare iho lands forfeited, and
a big fig^t will no doubt be
inaugerated." As to ihe Republican party
Assistant Secretary New sa s thatthejead
ing candidates for the gubernatorial nom
inations are Postrcostcr General U-fesham
and Congressman Colkins. Jndge Grresham «
wants to be governor by way of getting {
into the senate. Mr. Calkins wonld cheer- 1
fully resign the governorship for a se.it in
the senate, but he is no i; Sgericg partic
ularly for that. He would like to be gov
ernor of Indiana for four years, irrespec
tive of other things.

Again j»n<l I'lay a GooclCxamH
Yesterday afternoon the Union Pacifies,
of Omaha, and the Rod Caps mot again ou
the diamond, and played 0110 of the closest
and most interesting games ever witnessed
here. The batting of the visitors was
very heavy indeed, and it was due princi
pally to the excellent fielding of the Red
Caps that they succeeded ia holding the
score down. The principal feature on the
hoina club side was tho excellent work of
H-jgHU and Barnes. The pitching of tho
first and the catching of the latter were
much better than is usually seen, and a
good deal of judgment was dis
played by both. The heavy hitters
from Omaha got only seven hits off bis
pitehiug, virile the Red Caps go« live oil
AlcKelvy. Crooks did good work at sec
ond, and though Liwsou is credited with
one error he covered first ia a way that
was highly satisfactory. Tho Omaha club
is madu op of very heavy hitters indeed,
and they gave the Red Caps all the hot
work they could conveniently handle.
T:'c following is the score, which stood
ar the ninth inning tared to two in favor of
the visitors:

A Successful Picnic,
One of tha largest excursions ever seen
took place here to-day. Sunday schools
of Fargo and Moorhoad went on a special
train to Detroit lake ana spent the day
growing, and picnieing.
Tho train carried over 800 peoplo from the
two cities and back, arriving at 8 in the
ig without the loss of a person or
oident of any kind. About one-half
tho crowd were adults, among whom there
was a large proportion of young people.
It was evidently a season or universal o n
juoment.
Variety Slioirs.
The editor oJ the Jamestown Capital
was attacked an i severely purainoled the
other day by a member of a company
which is doing tho variety business at
thu Glebe theater in that city. The Capi
tal has lately had its voice wide open de
nouncing the variety business in that city,
characterizing tho female members as
prostitutes and saying many ugly things
j iv a general way. It is not known wheth
er th( spasm of virtue with which the Cap
ital has teen suCerin" will survive tre
pounding or no:, but if its editor would
observe the course of papers which are
run by men of age aim experience in such
matters he wonld perhaps get some ideas
without having them pounded iuto him.
The Post, of Fargo, now defunct, eaid
something at 0110 time about handling
some subjects with invisib'a toegs, which
might be a good plan for the Capital to
try.
'i 'eleph on c Extension.
The Valley City Times says that the ap
plication by the proprietor of the James
town and Valley City telephone exchange
companies for the right of running lines
between the two cities and from Valley
City to Fargo haa boea ted upon favora
bly by the Bell Telephone company. J.C.
Wooa-B:ard,manr.gerof the above exchange,
was in Valley City this morning, and
stated that us soon aa some changes in
the Jamestown central ofiieo were made,
work would bo commenced on a line at the
latter point and pushed this way, complet
ing the connection of the two cities in
about three weeks. The superintendent of
the Northwestern company states that
that organization will meet the line at
Tower City this fall. They also intend to
put a line through from Fargo to Bis
marck this fall or in the spring. It is
understood the Western Union Telegraph
company have granted permission to the
above parties to utilize the telegraph poles
for the telephone wires, and they
may avail themselves, temporarily, of the
offer.
The Hismarch Tribune's View.
The Press and Dakotian has a new
cause for grievance. It concedes that
Bismarck h;>.3 paid its $100,000, ' but in
sists that the capitol building will cost
but $50,000, and that the capital commis
sion intends to steal the other $50,000.
When the one hundred thousand is sup
plemented by one hundred and fifty
thousand more arising from the sale of
land and an investigation dhows that the
whole $250,000 has been wisely expended
and enough remains to [* build
and furnish whatever additions
may be required and provide a
magnificent law library, tne P. and D. will
doubtless find other imaginary causes for
complaint. Should it recover from its
present fainting fit, to use a mild term.the
editors of that paper will doubtless learn
that a fair rendering of the news, accom
panied by just comment, will bring the
most satisfactory returns. The man who
1 cries stop thief with the most energy, will
bear close watching, and those quickest to
question the motives of others should be
placed under tha heaviest bonds. It does
cot follow that corruption exists because
some fellow who estimates others by him
self charges it.
Thf. Excursion.
The following, which is taken from the
Miles City Daily Press, states the general
sentiments of the people of the northwest.
Dakota, as well as Montana, is conspicu
ously overlooked in the list of guests,
while mp.ny of the mon here have labored
long and taithfully for the advancement of
tha interests of the road, which were iden
tical with the development of this north
wester:; country. Even Colonel Donan,the
man who has more :h;ui all others adver
- ■ ird whom the
road has cause to feel grateful, was not
invited, and many peopla express the ideas
which the Press publi
■A- n ; ray of distinguished
names oonstituti -■ the list of visitor* who
have accepted President Villard's invita
tion to attend tha driving of the last spike
iv the Northern PaciSo road ne;;r Helena
on September 8. We do not notica the
name of any eastern Montana journalists
in the number, bably thtra ara
none of them calculated to shed
any additional luster upon the
brilliant list we have referred to.
Moreover, the newspaper men in
question have served their purpose, and
the railroad has litr.Je need of them in the
future. Their function has been to attract
people and trade on: to this Yellowstone
wilderness, and to assist materially ia
making it possible for the road to be
built. Now it is finished what more does
the company want? English and Euro
pean capitalists, men with high sounding
titles competent to inspire awe in the
mines of common folks, senators and con
gressmen, who hn.*-e yet to be conciliated
for u~6, and representatives of apper-ten
dom in general arc tho game that is fired
at no*-. Considering the persons who will
attend it and the vi. -ances many have
come for thfi purpose, the excursion will
be one of iha most remarkable ever made
in the world^
