ST. PAUL MS,
Extension of the Wisconsin Central to St.
J Eau Claire Free Press.]
The engineers employed by the Wiscon
sin Central Railroad company to discover
and lay out a new line between Chippewa
Falls and St. Panl, north of and nearly
parallel with the Omaha road, are still en
gaged upon their labors. What their . dis
coveries have been, or what their conclu
sions, has not yet been made public.
The absolute certainty of the extension
of the Central to St. Paul has inspired
prominent citizens of Ean Claire to | direct
the attention of President Colby to a short
er and better paying route, which would at
the same time " better , subserve
tha needs of this unsurpassed lumber
metropolis. In ' briefly outlin
ing the better route, for the contemplation
of the managers of tho affairs of the Cent
ral, as well as for the purpose of attracting
to it the earnest attention and active ef
forts of all who should be interested i a its
selection, the Free Press reflects tha wishes
and aims of niil'-ownersand other leading
business men who are more familiar with
the topography and resources of the pro
posed route than it is. First, it is ob
served that the distance between Eau
Claire and St. Paul, on a direct line, is
something less than the distance be
betweed Chippewa Falls and St. Paul
St. Fan] is in town 28, range 19. Eau
Claire is in town 27, range 9. Chippewa
Falls is on the line between towns 28 and
29, range 8. The reader may easily draw
the imaginary line and calculate the re
spective distances. But it is not to be as
sumed that a railroad can. bo constructed
on a direct lino. It is, however, quite as
probable that the route which would be
favored and supported by the growing in
terests of Han Claire, Fall City, Menomo
me, the Eiu G.*.lla country, River Falls,
and other towns and regions of commer-,
cial importance, would be quite as direct
and quito as short as that upon which tho
Central engineers are now at work.
Such is the general outline of the route
suggestea by several well-informed and
influential gentlemen who have studied
the mutual interests of the railroad com
pany and the public, and for which they
are able to make convincing if not con
clusive arguments. Beginning with the
indisputable fact that tho city of Eau
Claire is tha best objective point in the
northwest which may be made by any
trunk line of railroad, for both freight and
passenger traffic, they urge upon the Cen
tral a farther consideration not to be over
looked by it, that to start from Chippewa
Falls would bo practically to abandon its
ten miies of road between that
city and this, and to lose the immense
lumber traffic it would be certain to obtain
from Eau CL-.iro it the extension were
maila from this point. They then point
dv' an a further indisputable fact that the
local traffic for a through line cf railroad,
continuing from Eaa Claire towards St.
Paul, Mid leaving the Omaha line north of
it —taking in or touching the points
already named and others in its course,
which are trade centers, with both timber-

potted in the Sioux reservation, Dakota.
The best and largest finds aro made
about ten miles west of the Missouri
river, and in a direct line of the com*
pan}'- proposed extension of the Hastings
A D ikota division. Saveral samples of
the coal have been obtained from the In
dians who oo.npy the teservation, and who
say, 'Ugh! Big heap? of 'em here." The
samples are pronounced by experts to be
of excellent quality. With the opening of
the Sioux reservation to settlement, which
it is i spoofed will be done by the coming
congress, the St, Paul's lines will un
doubtly bo pushed forward to the coal
beds, and that immense deposit of the ar
ticle so demanded by the Dakota resident
thereby be put to good use.
Such is the Verdict In the Case at the Han
Killed by the Cars Monday Night.
Yesterday afternoon an investigation
was held at the union depot into the death
of Charles De Fiel, who was run o«er and
killed in the yards back of the depot Mon
day evening. Coroner Davenport made a
thorough investigation into the circum
stance of the unfortuurte affair and it was
shown it was purely accidental.
The deceased was the bookkeeper in the
North Star brewery on Dayton's bluff, and
on leaving the tstablishment at night it
has been his custom to board a switch
engine and ride* up to the
lienor. Monday evening he
inif-ed -connection acd startedto walk.
While proceeding along the track he
heard a train approaching, and he stepped
over to another track. It is supposed )
that he did not observe the j approach of a '
train from another direction, for just as
he reached the other traok a freight train
backed up and he was ran down, . the body
being frightfully mangled.
The remains were conveyed yesterday
to his residence, No. 274 Carroll street.
He leaves a wife and three children and a
number of friends to mourn his untimely
death. The funeral will take . place to

Tree Planting Counties.
State Auditor Braden was busy yester

to citizens of Faribault county, it being
the first at these remittances which are to
be sent oat into many counties of the

delay owing to a late shortness of funds
iv t»e state treasury.
The warrants for Faribault county were
for $70, and averaged all the way from $2
to $36 each, while ths funds thus annually
distributed through the state amount ta
several thousand dollars. These warrants
are issued nnder the law of 1573, which

A TIN WEDDING.
Celebration of the : Tenth Anniversary of
the Marriage of Mr. and Mrs. W. M.
Tllcston Last Evening.
The cosy dwelling of Mr. and Mrs. W. I
M.. Tileston, of Hotel Reporter fame, No.
155 west Third street, was ' the scene last
night of one of those thoroughly happy
and unpremeditated affairs, which, from
the nature of things occur but very seldom
ifi one's domestic lifetime.
The occasion was the anniversary of the
worthy eon pie's tin wedding, or the tenth
year of their married life, and right royal
ly was it celebrated by a number of . their
friends. The approaching event was kept
very qniet by Mr. Tileston, bat . some one
let the cat out of the bag, and a . quiet
scheme was set on foot to give them a
genuine surprise party. gg^-P9>*__H_t

They brought with them one of the
choicest selections of tinware ever seen in
the city. It embraced everything from a
rattle to a . complete ' kitch
en outfit, not io forget
a couple of tin pen holders and pens which'
were over a foot long and a couple of
inches in diameter. And there were
several gifts of great beauty and intrin
sic worth. Among other articles was a
beautiful and expansive rocking chair, the
gift of a number or their frtends.
After congratulations the company were
invited to a sumptuous and dainty spread,
before partaking of which Col. J. H.
Danidson read a series of resolutions ap
propriate to the occasion, the hostess at
this time sitting in the new chair and en
joying the gentle zephyrs of a tin fan.
Then Col. Davidson proceeded to cut
down the wedding cake, bat although fair
to look upon and very tempting from the
outside, did not yield to the knife. Mrs.
Tileston, more skilled in the culinary arts,
attempted to dissect the cake, when it was
found to be filled with straw and apples.
These were a few of the incidents which
made the occasion happy. The company
tarried until a late hoar, and were dis
missed with a blessing. .

against Mary S. Thorne, the actor's second
wife, to recover on an agreement made on

defendant, whereby she agreed to guar
antee that Chailes R. Thorne, Jr., should
pay $50 per month to the plaintiff, and if
he did Eot pay that amount the defendant
promised to do so herself. She also agreed
to pay $5,000 in a lump sam -on July 1,
1873, when the monthly payments were to
cease. The counsel for the defendant
answers that the signature, if proved, will
be admitted, but was without consideration
and is void: that ths plaintiff and Thorne
came to an entirely different agreement
after thai date, which superseded that
contract; that the plaintiff accepted the
new contract, and waived all rights to (he i
contract guaranteed by the defendant, and '
that th_ second contract was entirely ful
filled by Thorne. .

on recall by "The Cows are in the j Corn,"
and "Oh Maiden Fair", by Mr. Luse. The
duet, "Master and Scholar," by Miss Rand j
and Mr. De Lacy was a masterpiece, and '
served to bring oat a voice of no ordinary
power and clearness on ■: the part of the -
former, and showed her to be a finely ac- :
complished vocalist. '
There was a fall attendance, and the
evidence that it was very completely enter
tained was manifest from the enthusiasm
displayed by the audience and the many
recalls given. Rumors were rife in the air
at the close of the concert. that it would
soon have to be repeated at . the Baptist

very promising. There is much desire,
but little money. St. Paul will bo sur
rounded with good clubs, and in the spriDg
when all the good players havo been pick
ed up, and nothing is left bat the rubbish
and odds and ends to select from, St. Paul
will perhaps be^in to think about the mat
ter aud the mora she thinks tho
more she will wish she had a club, bat the
point then will be to get one. Well, she
will probably get one then; and what will
it hot It will be jast this and nothing
more, viz.: An A No. 1 club to get beat
with it, The game is growing rapidly in
ranhliff f.vn- It _,- t._t,_- „ai.„„. -,„,!
half as much as it was last year. The
coming year will surpass last year as
much as last year did all previous years.
St, Paul is . big enough and sufficiently
able to have a good club, but it does not
look now as though she would. If she can
not have a good ono she ought not to have
any at all.
- The Chicago club has seventeen players
under contract, aud three or . four more
will bo signed. The players .now under
engagements are Anson, Goldsmith, Burns,
Kelly, Flint, Williamson, Pfeffer, Gore,
Dalrymple and Sunday, all of the team of
1883, besides seven new players, including
Crosby, Dee, Young, Dinan, Whitely, De
pangler and Kinz'ie, who are to form the
auxiliary team of 1884. It will bo noticed
that the name of Larry Corcoran, the
pitc'ser, does not. appear on the list of
those who havo signed for next season.
Just before the club disbanded for the sea
son something in the nature of a tripartite
contract was entered into by
Flint, Corcoran and Gore, and
the trio descended in force upon the club
management with a demand for big money.
Flint estimated bis services at $3,500 for
five months' play. Corcoran invoiced his
pitching ability at $4,500, or close upon
$100 per game, while Gore thought he
could get along with $2,500. The syndi
cat© then folded its arms and waited re
suits. Flint was the first to weaken. Ho
had a big offer from the Dew I,',' club in
St. Louis, and as his wife's people live in
that city he was quite disposed to go there.
He was, however, induced to change his
mind, and an amicable adjustment was
reached on the basis of a salary said to be
about $2,500, and this with tho under
standing that he was not to catch in more
than half the games, as Kelly had accepted
a liberal increase of salary under an
agreement to play behind the bat when
ever called upon. . Just before leaving for
the soutb, Gore surrendered and signed
the contract. But Corcoran remained ob
durate to tho last, and departed for his
home in the east without leaving his sig
nature behind, He had lowered his de
mand from $4,500 down tt $4,000, but was
met with a stern refusal to consider any
such figure. Ii is understood that he was
offered $2,100, or an average of a trifle
over $40 per game for the fifty games t c
will have to pitch next year.
With the league, American association,
Northwestern association, Intercollegiate
association, Union association, Union
league, and various state and local organ
izations too numerous to mention, it seems
as if the season of 1884 would be far more
snocessf al and prominent than the one
The announcement is semi-officially
made that the American association will

The new teams will hail from the cities of

A CANAJU-IAN GHOST STORY.
Remarkable Incident at a Hallowe'en
Gat'icrltnj—Dread Fulfillment efa Prom
An incident of a rather peculiar nature
occurred in this city on lest Hallowe'en,
which has given rise to considerable con
jecture and surmise. The fact.-!, as ob
tained from one of tho participants by a
representative of the Gazette, briefly stated
are to the effect th.it seven young ladies,
nil of Montreal, at a Hallowe'en gathering
ten years ago agreod to meet again on the
same evening ten years after; the stipula
tion was "dead or alive," the young
lady who made use of that ex
pression reminding the other six of
their agreement a short time . after
in sending them etch an invitation for
October 31, 1883. This lady was evidently
tho originator of tho little reunion, and
laughingly promised to be present, even
if dead, and it wero at all possible for her
to do so. About four years ago this young
lady died very suddenly. She is described
as having been of a quiet, religious dispo
sition and very tall.
The remainder of the ten years rolled
by, and the time for Ihe reunion came.
Accordingly, on AU-Hr.l ow iva tie six met
nt the house of two of their number, who
W-re -inters, for tea; bat, according to the
original agreement, a chair was left vacant
for the missing one. This chair was draped
in black, while in front of it
on the table were some with
ered flower?, gathered from the
grave of the deceased. Nothing remark
able occurred during the repast, save that
the young lady next to the empty chair
spoke of a strange nervous sensation, but
this was not thought of at the tim*. After
tea they started. to move to the parlor, im
mediately adjoining, the young lady last
mentioned leading the way and carrying
in her hand the bunch of withered flowers.
The parlor was quite dark, saving the
light which streamed in from the dining
room »3 she opined the door. At that
moment she cried: "Look! look!" and
pointed into the parlor, where three or
four of them saw distinctly a tall white
figure standing at the door leading from
the parlor to the halL She who had first
seen it retreated quickly, and was ju.-t
leaving the dining room by the door from
that room to tbe hall when she iu> viti fta'v
the figure, and her cry brought three of
the others to the door, and all saw it glide
quickly along the hall from tho parlor
aoor to the door leading to the utroct,
which seemed to open of itsrlf nnd close
after tbe figure had pulsed thrtMi K -li.
Only one of tho six failed ;•> »i - the fig
ure at all, she having in both OHM been
too late, consequently she was very dubi
ous, and belie Tod the apparition to bs
merely some kind of a practical joke, and
at ones went and inspected the door of ex
it, but tbis was always kept locked and
latchsd from within, and was found to be
still secure, so the trick theory war* appar
ently out of the question as a solution of
Oar informant saw the figure twice, and
describes it *.s being "just t-_- right height"
—that is to say, very tall, and wholly
draped in white; no hands nor feet wero to
be seen,and the face was concealed;' it
seemed to glide rather than walk, and
moved very qnickiy; it did not touch the
door at all and did not appear to pa**
through if, bat the door seemed to open of
itself and close behind the figure. The
sensation produced by the figure was if it
were chuckling to itself on having kept the
promise to be present, and laughing at the
scare produced—at least' our young lady
informant states such to have been her
sensations in so far as she had any apart
from the dominant sense of fear.
Such is the story, and we give it for
what if is worth without attempting to of
fer either explanation or comment.
