The Whole Party to be Kept Prisoners
Until Half a Million is Paid.
Hailey, Idaho, Ang. 2.">. — Considerable
excitement exists in this city over the
report which appeared in last evening's
Wood River Times that a
party of cow boys had started
for Yellowstons Park to kidnap President
Arthur, and Sheriff Farcy has detailed two
trustworthy deputies to look the matter up
with instructions to summon a strong
posse and arrest the kidnappers if the
facts are as stated.
Ths Times says that during the past
two weeks a number of stranger-, all well
provided with good riding animals and
fire arms and resembling a party of regu
!..'•-- or Texas cow boys, have been camptd
on Willow creek, and considerable curiosity
en expressed as to the intentions of
the party, some accounting for their outfit
iis a party organized to go up the Indian
country for a prospecting trip, whiie others
believed them a band of Arizona rustlers.
for ransom are conducted.
During several days past some of the
party have ridUea through town in a defi
ant manner and mysteriously disappeared.
From a man who came in to-day it is
learned that the party who induced him to
join them and made him take certain
pledges of secrecy were organized to pro
ceed to Yellowstons park. They left last
night, going on the stage road, and es
caped during the night. The object of
the expedition is to corral and capture
President Arthur and party and to spirit
them away into the mountains and caves,
where they will be fed but kept prisoners
while members of the party act as pick
ets to prevent being surprised
and captured while negotiations
The captain or leader of the party has
an idea that a heavy ransom will be of
fered by the United States and personal
friends of the president after search for
the president's party shall be given up
and that $500,000 can thus be extorted
from the secret service fund and divided
among the party on the principle adopted
by Italian banditti .
The escaped member of the party says
there are sixty -five men in the outfit and
some of them were guerrillas in the late
war, and five were Shoshone and Banack
Indians, who go along as guides and scouts
who are armed with repeating rifles,
etc. The leader is a Texan
de=perp.do on whose head a price has been
Bet, and with the exception of two Italians
who left the railroad graders the others of
party ;ire cowboys.

„ Aug. 25.— The Sault Ste Marie
.;■, whose articles of association were
recently ii!!?tl with the secretary of state,
neeins to excite the interest of prominent
Workers to n wonderful extent, as
several letters have been received bj the
secretary of state. As will be remembered.
the articles stated that this road was to be
built across the northern portion of Wis
consin, from Polk to Florence counties, a
distance of 226 miles, the inference being
that it is a Wisconsin outshoot of the Can
ada Pacific railway.
Of the proposed road W. D. Washburn, a
prominent stockholder, and one of the di*
rectors, says:
"This company was organized to build a
railroad from St, Paul and Minneapolisjto
Sault Ste Marie. The people to be bev.e
ficially affected by its construction have
concluded that the time has arrived for a
step intended to protect the commercial
and business interests of both St. Paul
and Minneapolis, and this new company
ha 3 been organized with that fall deter
mination. As a local road its business
will ba advantageous to everyjeommunity
on it 3 line and will make vast lumber and
iron regions tributary to St. Paul and
Minneapolis, which would be otherwise be
inevitably shut out by competing lines,
but the great controlling motive in build
ing it is to get the shortest possible line to
the seaboard. The entire distance from
St. Paul to Sault Ste Marie is 45.1 miles
and of this 125 miles is now traversed by
a railroad built or under contract, from
the Sault in this direction, and the new
company proposes to fill the remaining
gap. The Canadian Pacific company is
extending its lines westward from
Montreai and Brockville vi«
Lake Nepissing to Sault Ste Marie a
distance of about 150 miles only, the road
having been completed to the lake men
tioned. The connection with th 3 Cana
dian Pacific with our new road and the
gaps completed the distance from St.
Paul to Montreal is about the same as
Chicago to New York. For two thirds of
the year, two-thirds of the shipments
would go by railjjjto Montreal. The new
line will necessarily take all New England
business from t the Northwest, from the
fact that the line from St. Paul to Port
land, Me., is 330 miles shorter, via Sault
Ste Marie than by Chicago and 200 miles
to Boston by the same route. The time
from St. Paul and Minneapolis to all New
England points will be twelve hours less
than by Chicago, and the distance from
St. Paul and Minneapolis to New
York is 100 miles less by the
Sanlt Ste Marie line. With this new road
in operation sleeping coaches will be run
from St. Paul and Minneapolis to Bos
ton without change. It will traverse and
make tributary an immense belt of pine
woods for manufacturing purposes, and
assist immeasurably in opening the as yet
undeveloped iron ranges of northern V» is
consin. We will send two engineering
parties into the field at the earliest moment
possible; the preliminary survey will be
made as early as the Ist of January next,
and the line will be permanently located,
so as to warrant a commencement of
work esrly i- the spring."

are on a tour to Calgary, Kicking Horse
pass and the Rookies. Tho company are

Of course it fell to the lot of the Globe
to show the distinguished strangers over
the city, to obtain their opinions upon the
rapid progress of the northwest and the
metropolitan city of St. Paul, and so forth.
Accordingly from the large editorial
staff a fitting representative was
selected for the occasion, and when it was
known that he (the Globe representative)
had but just made the trip which the dis
tinguished foreigners were just about to
commence the relative position of inter
viewer and interviewees was changed and
the Globe man was literally besieged by
eager question askers. Nothing daunted,
however, and not much overwhelmed by
the august presence of so much blue blood
he contrived through it all to show several
of the distinguished foreigners over the
business part of the city. He took them
down Third from the Merchants to Wa
couta, up Fourth to Sibley and Jackson,
pointing out the magnificent array of
wholesale houses. From thence up
Third io the bridge where the strangers
from Grote's garden were enchanted with
the lovely scene across and down and up
the river.
Enchantment to right ef them,
Enchantment to left of them,
Enchantment in front of them,
And the Oid World wondered.
The strangers expressed their wonder
aud amazement at what they saw. The
city, they said, not only showed enter- j
prise unit rapid advancement (several had
Leer. ~in St. Paul before), but
of solidity and substantial prosperity
! quite foreign to mo*t ru:\v cities. Our
?ere unanimously dec
ticen . and several stating that they i
entered "i liner bosinesss palace than j
; Mannheimer's, on Third Btreet. In the
ooursti of showing tbe ciiy, the Globe man
picked up the following facts concerning
the excursion. The party left Montreal
j Tuesday, Aug. 20, a. m., by the Grand
i Trnnk, to Toronto, thence by the
i Credit Valley, Canadian Southern, and
: Michigan Central to Chicago,
wsiing over th« Milwaukee, St. Paul £
Minneapolis road to St. Paul and from St.
Paul to Mmnetonka by the Manitoba
line, arriving at Hotel Lafayette at 9:10 p.
ni. Friday mailing the whole trip from
Montreal to Minnetoaka in one day and
twenty-two hour? after being delayed two
hoars on the road and making a consider
i able stay in Chicago. The quickest time
i made, the Globe was informed, was on
I the Credit Valley road when forty-five
miles were traversed in forty-nine minutes.
The party dined at Hotel Lafayette Friday
night. Yesterday morning they visited
Minneapolis and her grand array »f mills;
from thence they went to Mr. Hill's farm
and inspected his herd of imported cattle
md then came on to St. Paul, arriving
about 11 o'clock, when the Globe took them
j as already stated, under its guidance.
Asked what he thought of Minnetonka.
Lieut-Governor Bobitaille, of Quebec, said
it was all that can be desired as a deiigtful
resting place both as regards scenery and
comfort. Nothing can exceed the delight
ful purity and invigorating qualities of
Minnetonka, he said, and as for the Hotel
Lafayette he considered it perfection.
There were those, however, of the party
who said that Minnetonka had discovered
the secret of all fashionable watering
places — the secret of charging. This was
the case especially with the boatman. One
of the guests being surprised at the de
mand made for a boat asked what would
be the price of the boat; just about the
same as the hire, was the reply. The in
dustries of St. Anthony were spoken of by
all in the highest terms of praise, their
wonder being immensely excited by the
Pillsbury mill.
J.B.Hamilton,Esq., of the London stock
exchange and farmer of Essex, England,
was astonished at all he saw, but having
his attention called especially to our
wholesale business houses, he quietly said,
' % Oh, well, when you have seen one Ameri
can business house you have seen all — these
are only repetitions of New York and
Chicago. The Americans build astonish
ing basiness edifices. Lords Latham,
Castleton and Eiphinstone expressed
themselves as highly pleased and very
much surprised at the rapid strides the
two cities had made the last few years.
They were not asked their opinion upon
the ''Irish question," "Mr. Gladstone's
policy," "The anti-pigeon shooting bill,"
"Deceased wife's sister bill," and the thou
sand and one questions of British interest,
just because the Globe and the Globe
readers already know them, and it would
be hard to find a person with ordinary in
telligence who could not anticipate the
opinion of any tory lord upon these ques
tions if he did not already know them.
What the Globe wanted was to get the
opinion of the distinguished strangers on
our immediate surroundings. Professor
Simpson, of Glasgow university, a scientist
of acknowledged standing, and the Globe
scientist had a long interview, in which
the foreign scientist questioned the home
scientist closely upon the nature of the
soil along the Canadian Pacific railroad,
and the Globe scientist gave him minute
information which he will be able to verify
at Medicine Hat, Calgary and Kicking
Horse pass, aud in return Professor Simp
son assured the Globe scienti«t that he,
Professor Simpson, would be delighted to
live in St. Paul if he could only transport
his university from Glasgow. Several
gentlemen of the party asked the Globe
man's opinion upon the scheme of placing
buildings upon farms ready for immi
grants to go into — house, stables and
barns, and then Bell to the farmer at so
much per acre, with time to pay .and from
conversation this seemed to be the scheme
now to be pursued by some of the Cana
dian land companies.
The Globe scientist had the pleasure of
hearing the new electric light, the Elphin
stone it Vincent arc and incandescent *ys
teaa, explained. The inventors are Lord
Elphinstone and Mr. Vincent f.nd the
principal point in which the system differs
from other arc and incandescent systems
is that a lower intensity of enrrent is used
with greater brilliancy of light. Indeed so
gentle will be current that it can be passed
through the living body with impuuity, so
that no danger can arise from handling.
Generetory and lamps and all the par
phanalia necessary also can be produced
cheaper than those now in use. Mr. A. G.
Tod, 1, Gilltillan block, is the appointed
agent for St. Paul. The Globk
man sought aa interview with
President Stephens, cf the Canadian
Pacific road, but that gentleman was clos
eted with the directors ot the Manitoba
road at thei: annual meeting up to the
moment of the train with the excursionists
on board left the depot, which was at 3:20
p. m. They will be gone on their trio
three weeks.
The Jliimcjiotti Transfer.
Yesterday afternoon a meeting of those
interested in the Minnesota Transfer
Railway company held a meeting at the
Northern Pacific general office in St. Paul
and adopted the articles of incorporation.
Those present were General Haupt, of the
Northern Pacific; A. Manvel and J. J.
Hill, of the St. Paul & Manitoba; S. S.
Merrill and P. M. Meyers, of the Chicago,
Milwaukee & St. Paul; A. W. Winter, of
the Chicago, St. Paul & Omaha, and W. H.
Truesdale, of the Minneapolis & St. Louis.
After adopting the articles the following
officers were elected:
President — General Haupt.
Vice President— . W. Winter.
Secretary — A. H. Bodie.
Treasurer H. P. Upham.
A Little. Sharp Drive at the Northern
■■ Pacific.
[Helena, Montana, Independent J
Telegrams say the formal ceremonies
of the Northern Pacific completion "will
take place about sixty miles west of Hel
ena." This would be about the mouth of
Gold creek. We believe the intersection
of the Utah & Northern near the mouth of
Blackfoot is forty-nine miles west of
Helena. While ; the Northern Pacific has
been built without soliciting, receiving, or
being offered much advice from us, we
wish to contribute our mite toward the
great enterprise, and now respectfully
urge that, unless there are better reasons
j why it should not be, the ceremony shall
be at the mouth of Blackfoot.
While it does not appear Mr. Villard has
as yet issued any invitations to Montan
iaus, and it is liJi. 'y for ohvious reasons
I when it is done there will be but few in
vited guests, it is certainly not the pur
posa to perform this ceremony "with
closed doors" a3 it were. It is a matter
of great public interest. The grant to the j
Northern Pacific of over 250,000 square ]
! miles of its lands has lain like a blight up- j
i on this territory for many years, and in j
the good feeling toward the enterprise and I
in the hopo of its ultimate completion ]
j there has hardly been a murmur of op
position, while the public sentiment was
averse to forfeiture of tho grant even
I when that forfeiture necessarily included
J "the more speedy completion of the road,"
j Now, when completion is assured and dis
| tinguished visitors are brought across the
I sea to participate in the ceremonies, it
would be great error, indeed, for the man
agers to exclude any who desire to witness
the ceremony, either by failing to make it
known that they will be welcome or by
selecting other than the most accessible
point for the event.
Owing to the delay on the west end it is
likely that the actual point of connection
will be near Gold creek, unless it is ordered
otherwise. But the ceremony, if it may
be elsewhere than at the actual point of
connection, or if that point may be forced,
should be where the Union Pacific system
intersects the Northern Pacific, thus ena
bling [visitors from the south as well as
from the east and west to witness it.
It is not suggested in this that we be the
guests of the Northern Pacific Railroad
company, or be accorded free transporta
tion. Neither of these things is desired.
But if it is a matter of sufficient interest to
induce a number of foreign gentlemen to
journey this far to see, it is an event of
more significance to scores of Montanians
whose attitude toward the Northern Pacific
may be of more consequence than that of
a titled gentleman from over the sea.
We mention these things ju3t as they
are. While the telegrams are, and have
for some time, been burdened with ac
counts of the guests of the Northern Pa
| cific who are received at Bremen, and who
i will be carried on palatial specials to the
scene, no Montanians have yet even been
notified that they may stand afar off and
witness the ceremony.
There is a beautiful meadow at the
mouth of Blackfoot, where the pavilion
can be erected. It is accessible to both
railroads, in the heart of the mountains,
and designed from the foundation of the
world for this event. We trust that it will
be selected, and that whoever is managing
this affair will knock down the fence and
tell the people to walk into the show.

from a field of 220 acres which will aver
age twenty three bushels to the acre,
The ohargeu against Division Superin
tendent Cable, of the St. Paul & Manitoba
road for improper conduct on the road
came up for consideration before the rail
road officers and were fully considered.
The charges were made in a formal man

the service of the company.
The Michigan Central announces a re
duction in the round trip excursion rate
between Buffalo and Chicago to $20, the
rate heretofore having been §21. This re
duction, it is claimed, was made because
the Grand Trunk has been making the
same rate for several days past. Of course
all other lines between Buffalo and Chi
cago will have to make the same reduc
tion . There is no trouble, however, re
garding regular first-class rates, which re
main the same as heretofore by all the
lines.
During the pa3t twelve months the Wis
consin Central Railway company has sold
2,000 acres of its land in Marathon, Price,
Taylor, fc'lark and Adams counties for an
average price of $5 per acre. The sales
have been made to actual settlers exclu
sively, speculators being given no oppo -

the company has sold also 200 town lots
and 100,000,000 feet of stumpage, During
the past two years over thirty new saw
mills, whose product is all tributary to the
company's lines, have been built and aie
now in operation.

Those enterprising business men, Battler
Bros., are continually in a steady and substan
tial manner gaining a stronger prominence
among our first business houses: their latest
move being one of especial consequence. They
have purchased the leaso of the magnificent
store room which Mr. Golden has been using as
a restaurant, on East Third street, just above
Jackson street. Work will be inaugurated early
this week toward remodeling the room, and by
the middle of September our citizens may ex
pect to see one of tho handsomest clothing
stores in the west located there. The new store
will be run in connection with their present
spacious establishment, which has become mnch
too small for their extensive trade.
