ON last Sabbath morning Mrs. Ho-and

the Methodist Episcopal church, on the
subject of foreign missions. Her dis
course, which was interspersed with ac.

tained in letters written home by them,
was highly interesting. After the lec
ture, subscriptions for the mission cause
were solicited, and the amount raised
was quite liberal. Mrs. Hobart seems
to be a very zealous and efficient worker
in this cause.

WE had been somewhat surprised at
the ill-natured remarks of the St. Paul
Pioneer-Press, respecting Cal. Wag
ner Minstrel Troupe, for the reason
that we knew Mr. Wagner had always
hitherto run only a first-class show.
When the troupe arrived here, we de
termined to 6ee its performance and
judge for ourself whether the harsh
criticism, was just, and are now prepar
ed to say that it was wholly undeserved.
Mr. Wagner's present troupe is fully
equal to the high standard he has here
tofore maintained, and in some respects
superior, and we apprehend that the
criticism was called forth by the refusal
of his agent to give the extra supply of
dead-head tickets demanded by the Pio
neer-Press managers. To those who find
amusement in minstrel troupe shows,
we can commend Cal. Wagner's troupe,
as being one of the best, if not the very
best, that travels. Cal. is an experi
enced hand at the business and always
tries to please the public.
ON last Friday morning, Coroner
Park was sent for to hold an inquest on
the remains of Mr. Charles Evers, of
Roscoe township. From the evidence
before the coroner it seems that, on the
evening previous, Mr. Evers was return
ing home from Red Wing with a wagon
partially loaded. When he reached a
hill on Featherstone prairie, about seven
and a half miles from this city, he neg
lected to control his team, and in going
down the hill they increased their speed
to a run. At the bottom of the hill the
road turns and passes over a bridge
across a gully. On making this turn
suddenly, at a high rate of speed, the
wagon was slung sideways and Mr.
Evers was thrown out violently and fell
on the bridge. The concussion was so
severe that his neck was broken and his
skull badly fractured, death, of course,
ensuing immediately. We understand
that the deceased was about twenty
eight years of age, and was married
about five months ago. The corpse was
taken charge of by his friends.

ON last Sunday morning about three
o'clock, two young men, named Frank
Hutchinson and Charles Carrington,
undertook to cross the river in a skiff
in which it is stated they had a keg and
two jugs filled with liquor. When they
left the levee Carrington was rowing
Hutchinson steering, but as the lat
ter did not know the river, he pro
posed to Carrington to change places
with him. In attempting to pass each
other to accomplish this, the skiff was
capsized and they were both thrown
into the water. Hutchinson, it seems,
was unable to get hold of the boat
from some cause, but Carrington caught
it and sustained himself in the water.
His cries for help attracted Mr. Gould,
who was near the mill, and that gen
tleman, with the assistance of Mr.
Sexton, succeeded in rescuing him from
his dangerous predicament. Search
was also made for Hutchinson, but
without success, as he was probably
drowned soon after falling into the
water. Hutchinson was about twenty
five years old and said to be from
Minneapolis. Very little was known
concerning him by persons residing
here. He and Carrington were both
employed on the opposite side of the
river, and were on their way home at
EVERY body knows his own business
but when the public are invited to hear
gentlemen speak, and the gentlemen
are put to the trouble and expense of
coming to the appointed place, both
the public and the speakers have the
right to inquire, why those whjpse busi
ness it is to attend to such matters, did
not make the arrangements necessary?
On last Thursday, Messrs. R. A. Jones
and E. W. Durant, candidates on the
democratic State ticket, were here to
fill an appointment to speak, but the
local committee failed to make any
provisions for them, and the conse
quence was that, instead of enlightening
the public and making votes for the
democratic ticket, they had to pass the
entire evening listening to Cal. Wag
ner's jokes! The conduct of the com
mittee is inexplicable, and is a covert
reflection upon the distinguished visit
ors named, or a piece of treachery to
the party, for the committee must have
thought either that Ed. and Dick,
would do more harm than good by speak
ing, or else they don't want any more
democratic votes cast in this county.
Since writing the abqve we learn
that the committee have given, as the
reason for their neglect, that Hon.
Chris. Graham advised against having
a meeting, stating that it was his expe
rience that a democratic meeting never
could be made a success when there
was a "nigger show" within reaching
distance. We presume that this is a
REPUBLICAN NOMINATIONS.—On last

E. A. Sargeant was called to the chair,
and Mr. H. Johnson was chosen secre
On motion of Mr. Graves, Messrs.
Wm. Featherstone, D. C. Hill and Ru

RETURNED AND DEPARTED AGAIN.—
The old settlers of Red Wing have re
cently been enjoying the society of Col.
C. C. Johnson, who used to be a resi
dent of this city, but left in a hurry
about twelve years ago. At one time
he commanded the militia of this dis
trict, and stood ready to obey his
country's call, provided such obedi
ence did not involve danger. But hav
ing a penchant for signing pieces of
paper, which he employed his genius
to make valuable by affixing other
people's names thereto, he had occa
sion to take a sudden departure from
this inhospitable region and find in
exile a more secure abode.
On coming back into the bosom of
that society from which he had been
so long estranged and amidst the scenes
of his former financial operations the
strong habit seems to have again seiz
ed upon him. Claiming to be the tra
velling agent of the Vermont Novelty
Works, and to stand in need of funds,
he presented at the counter of Messrs.
Pierce, Simmons & Co., a check for
$75 on a bank of Bellows Falls, in the
Green Mountain State, and got the
money for it. But $75 was not enough
to satisfy his wants, and then, he prob
ably did not desire to show partiality in
patronizing the monetary establishments
of his old home, so he presented at the
1st National Bank another check for a
similar amount, purporting to be drawn
by Messrs. Pattridge & Co., clothing
dealers of Boston, on a bank of that
city, and also obtained the money for it.
Soon after these achievements the
period for terminating his visit arrived,
and he left at once without informing
his friends where to address him. Af
ter he had gone, the story reached here
that he had favored a bank in Duluth
with a check on a bank of Rutland,Vt.,
and obtained the money for it, and that
it was pronounced a foigery. Upon
hearing this the officers of the 1st Na
tional Bank of this city telegraphed to
Boston to inquire about their check,and
wore not well pleased to find that that
was likewise a forgery. Messrs. Pierce,
Simmons & Co. have not received in
telligence concerning theirs, but have
no doubt that it is a similar spurious
production. It is altogether likely that
the Colonel will soon return, as his
friends have sent for him.
THE LEGISLATIVE TICKET.—The
nominations for the legislature for this
county, are, we believe, all made that
will be made this season. In the 16th
Hon. Robert Deakin is the re-
publican, and W. C. Williston the dem
ocratic candidate for senator. Our ac
quaintance with both these gentlemen
is extremely limited, and we are not,
therefore, competent to say much con
From the information we have
received we conclude that they are both
worthy the confidence of the public, and
that the district will be faithfully repre
sented by either. Being thus equally
meritorious, it is likely that they will
each get the votes of their respective
In the Red Wing representative dis-
trict, Dr. W. W. Sweeney, an old and
highly esteemed citizen, is the demo
cratic nominee, and his republican com
petitor is Mr. R. Brink, a mechanic
and very worthy gentleman,who is,also,
well and favorably known in this local
ity, where he has long been a resident.
For the towns of Burnside, Welch,
Featherstone, Hay Creek, Florence,
Wacouta, Central Point, Belvidere and
Goodhue, the representative candidates
are Mr. J. C. Bennewitz, of Florence,
democrat, and Hon. Rudolph Kruger,of
Hay Creek, both of whom are worthy,
competent gentlemen, but, from what
we hear, we are led to believe that the
latter is most popular and enjoys the
greatest degree of public confidence,and
is altogether the most likely to be
For the towns of Belle Creek, Minne
ola, Zumbrota, Pine Island and Roscoe,
Mr. B. C. Grover, of Minneola, is the
republican candidate for representative.
For Wanamingo, Holden, Cherry Grove
and Kenyon, Mr. H. P. Hollebeck is
the republican nominee for representa
tive and for Leon, Warsaw, Stanton,
Cannon Falls and Vasa, Mr Evan J.
Evanson, of Warsaw, is the republican
candidate for representative. In each
of these instances we do not understand
that there are any opposing candidates,
and we are assured that the gentlemen
named are such as their constituents
can implicitly rely upon for faithfully
performing the duties which will de
volve upon them. We are entirely un
acquainted with them, but as they ap
pear to be the choice of their neighbors
we cannot doubt their merits and
The only county officer to be elected
is the treasurer, and as Mr. L. A. Han
cock, the present incumbent, is the
nominee of both parties and only candi
date, that fact ought not only to make
his election secure, but be regarded
besides as the most positive evidence
of his worth and suitableness.
From the facts as stated above it may
be inferred that there will be no very
sharp and exciting political contest in
this county this year, and from the in
dications, as far as we can perceive,the
probabilities favor the supposition that
the republican nominees have a reason
able show for election, and that the
country is safe, in any event.
