IN another column will be found a
very interesting letter from Texas,
which is written by a gentleman who
formerly reided here, but has lived long
enough in that State to appreciate the
real difference between life there and
here. He promises us future letters,
and amongst other things to give us
descriptions of the cattle, horses, sheep,
hogs, &c, of that region. Our readers
may rely upon his- statements being
IT is a matter of surprise that so
much real property is being offered for
sale in this city, and that so few sales
are made. In this respect, however,
Red Wing is not different from other
cities generally. The fact is, business is
is depressed everywhere and property is
shrinking in value so rapidly that hold
ers, who are not well enough off to be
secure, are anxious to realize before
times get worse but, unfortunately, the
same cause which makes them anxious
to sell, operates to make buyers scarce.
WHEAT is still quoted at 85c. for No.
2 and 90c. for No. 1, though some good

THE letter of J. O. is not worthy
of publication, and the winter would be
apt to regret its publicity if we should
give it a place in our columns. There
is no such contest between the people
of Western cities and those of the
eountry as he imagines. Indeed, their
interests are identical generally. If the
farmers are prosperous, the laborers,
mechanics and merchants of the cities
can expect to prosper on the other hand
if the farmers are poor, the city
people cannot avoid suffering with them.
In all cities there are speculators,
usurers, etc., who prey upon the
country people and town people, too,
whenever they can, but it is not fair to
hold all the residents of the cities re
sponsible for the sins of these few Ish
MESSRS. WELLMAN & BoyNTON have
been compelled to make an important
change in their establishment. The
small burrs, with which they commenc
ed business proved wholly inadequate
to do the milling they required, and a
few weeks ago they replaced them with
a larger pair from the factory of Mun
son Brothers, of Utica, New York.
These will do nearly twice as much
work as the others, and do it in a much
better manner, and we are glad to know
that Messrs. W. & B. have demand for
all the feed, corn-meal, Graham flour
and cracked wheat they can manufac
ture with their increased facilities.
Their establishment has became almost
a pecessity in Red Wing, and they take
every pains to merit general patronage.
Besides the product of their own mill,
they keep constantly on hand all the
best brands of flour, buckwheat meal,
corn, oats, &c., and sell at the lowest
IT is said that the Red Wing wheat
buyers, in excusing themselves for not
paying as much for wheat as the buyers
in Lake City, Hastings, Cannon Falls,
and other neighboring towns, declare
that the higher prices in Lake City and
Hastings are due to rivalry between
buyers, who are "running" each other.
Whether it is true or not, it is certain
that they are "running" Red Wing and
that the low prices prevailing here are
doing considerable injury to the trade of
this city. Farmers cannot be expect
ed to patronize those who wili not pay
them the same rates for their produce
as other dealers, a few mile* further off
nor is it unreasonable to expect that
they shall feel unkindly towards dealers
who endeavor ro buy their produce at
less than current rates. It is true,
howeyer, that our dealers are really
paying more than the Chicago and Mil
waukee quotations justify, and are tak
ing the risk of a rise. It would seem
that the only difference between them
and the dealers in the other cities
named are that the latter are willing to
run greater risks.
WE regret that we have to omit the
lecture of Mr. Henry Heys, delivered
before the Belvidere Grange P. of H.,
on the 5th instant. Having had al
ready in type the lecture of Hon. Eben
ezer Ayres, delivered before the State
Grange, when that of Mr. Heys was re
ceived, it was absolutely necessary that
we should postpone the latter until next
we°k. The closing portion of Mr.
Heys' lecture is a timely and sensible
criticism on the wood measuring ordi
nance oi this city, and the lecturer
ended by introducing the following
preamble and resolutions which were
adopted by the grange:
WHEREAS, it has come to our notice,
through various sources, that the city coun
cil of the city of Red Wing has criminated,
or attempted to criminate, our brethren
for what we deem no offence, believing that
said Council has transcended its powers in
so doing and while the matter at issue is a
direct and unwarranted attack upon our
brethren, we are constrained to believe that
it is an indirect attack upon ourselves, there
fore, be it
Resolved, That we heartily sympathize
with our brethren, in their present struggle
in defence of their liberties, and should the
said city council not see fit to withdraw the
necessary suit now pending, we shall feel
it our duty to assist our brethren in a sub
stantial manner, in case of a prolonged con
test, and we call upon our neighboring
granges and upon farmers generally to do
Resolved, That a copy i-f these proceed
ing be published in the Grange Advance.
CANTATA OF DANIEL.—On next
Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday
evenings, the 15th, 16th and 17th, the
singers of this city, under the direction
of Professor S. Raymond, will give a
rendition of the celebrated cantata of
Daniel, at Opera Hall. The perform
ers will be attired in appropriate orien
tal costumes and the stage appoint
ments will be handsome and in accord
ance with the character of the piece.
The following is the dramatis personae:
Queen, Mrs. F. M. Wilson Maids of
Honor, Misses Nellie Davis, Emma Mc
Sorley, Hattie Cox and Rena Messick
Sister of Azariah, Mrs. J. C. McClure
Maids of Honor, Mrs. A. Peterson and
Miss Emma Heising Darius the King,
F. A. Williamson Daniel, 1st Pres
ident, S. Raymond 2d President, Geo.
Sjoblom 3d. President, E. F. Grow
Azariah, George Simmons Mishael,
E. L. Marble Hananiah, John Bos
worth 1st Prince, J. C. Hawes 2d
Prince, D. H. Towle 3d Prince, O. C.
Langseth King's Chamberlain, W. A.
Orser King's Herald, W. S. Grow.
We presume that our readers gener
ally understand that this cantata is
founded upon incidents recorded in the
book of Daniel, of the casting of the
Hebrew princes into the fiery furnace,
and of putting Daniel into the lions'
den. It is an artistic musical composi
tion and when properly rendered, as
there is every reason to believe it will
be on this occasion, is exceedingly beau
tiful and interebting. We understand
that especial pains have been taken to
make the rendition as perfect as possi
ble. The participants have been as
siduously trained by frequent rehearsals
carefully conducted, and several new
solos have been composed expressly for
this occasion. A complete orchestral
score has also been added, and an or
chestra of ten instruments will appear
We hope that those who have taken
the trouble and borne the expense of
getting up this entertainment, will be
generously patronized by the citizens of
Red Wing, and that on this occasion,
at least, the statement that "home tal
ent is never appreciated" will be dis
proved. Let there be as large an audi
ence as that which greeted the opera
troupe recently, for we have, no doubt
it will be equally deserving, if not even
more meritorious. The admission price
is 50 cents for adults and 25 cents for
children under twelve years of age, and
no extra charge for reserved scats,
which may be secured at Lawrence &
A Large Establishment.
One of the heaviest business estab
lishments of this city is that conducted
by Messrs. Betcher & Co. and Messrs.
Betcher & Alley, on Main street near
Plum. The latter firm owns a saw
mill and factory at Esdaile, the former
being run with water and the latter
with steam power. They manufacture
there a vast quantity of wagon hubs,
spokes, felloes, axles, &c, and sleigh
runners, knees, &c, which are sent
here and sold in the rough from the
warehouses of the firm in the rear of
the store of Betcher & Co., and of those
adjoining. One of these is 52 by 42
feet and four stories high, and there
are three others of one story. These
are all pretty well filled with the arti
cles mentioned, which are sold here to
manufacturers and, also, sent to all
the neighboring cities of this State.
Besides the articles above mentioned,
this firm also manufacture a vast quan
tity of broom-handles at their Esdaile
factory, and, also, get out a considerable
quantity of bedstead stuff and they
likewise do a heavy business in the sale
of all sorts of agricultural machinery.
They already have on hand a large num
ber of Esterly Seeders, made at White
water, Wis., and of McSherry Seeders,
made at Dayton, Ohio and they like
wise handle those of several other ma
Fronting on Plum street, and running
back to their Main store, Messrs.
Betcher & Co. have ^warehouse 82 by
25 feet, and three Itories high. The
lower story of this is used exclusively
for their iron trade, and is filled with a
very heavy stock of every thing in this
line. The second is the tin shop, where
a number of hands are constantly en
gaged in the manufacture of all kinds of
tin, sheet iron and copper utensils. The
third story is chiefly devoted to storage
of broom-handles, bedstead stuff, etc.,
of Messrs. Betcher & Alley's depart
Fronting on Main street is the prin
cipal store house. This is 142 feet
deep by 20 feet front, and three stories
high, with abasement extending under
the entire building. The basement is
well filled with nails, horse-shoes,
wrapping-paper &c. The ground floor
is a magnificient sales-room, in which
are all kinds of hardware shelf-goods,
tinware, stoves, cutters, buggies, &c,
and a busy corps of clerks. constantly
on the move. The rear end of this
apartment contains the counting-room,
which is a well arranged and business
like looking place.
The second and third floors of this
building are used as store rooms for all
kinds of hard-ware, tin, sheet-iron,
zinc, &c, with a fair quantity of stoves,
buggies, cutters, and various odds and
ends too numerous to mention. Taken
altogether this is one of the heaviest
business houses in the State, outside of
St. Paul, and the amount of business
transacted annually is astonishing.
The wagon stuff made at the Esdaile
mill goes all over the State, and is, of
itself, a very important item of the bus
iness of Red Wing.
