(food for St. Paul.
The success of St. Paul in being des
ignated as one of the ports for tea in
spection is as surprising, under all the
circumstances, as it will be welcome to
the people of the city and state. The
determined fight set on foot against this
city in that behalf, in the interest of
large Eastern commercial centers, ren
ders our success all the more gratifying,
and attest the high importance which is
to be attached to the decision of the
treasury department. The revocation of
the original adverse order merely proves
that it has not been thought either just
or safe to distinguish against a commun
ity whose geographical position rendered
it the most entirely suitable inspection
point ol this section of the country.
At this period in the industrial and
commercial development of this city and
section, the impoitance of the action of
the tieasury department cannot be over

St. Paul the distributing point for a veiy
respectable portion of the gross ship

portance of the community as a shipping
and commercial point, and it will be a
considerable factor in the development

help to demonstrate that this is the na
tural commercial distributing point of
the great section of country streching

Contactor Kinraoro Killed near Sleepy Eye.
The following we learn from the Ad
vance and Dispatch:
Conductor Sam Kiniriore, one of the
oldest and most highly esteemed em
ployes of the Northwestern road, met
bis death in a most shocking and sudden
manner in Sleepy Eye Wednesday morn
ing about 11 o'clock.
Conductor Kinmore, who was in
charge of the way freight east, went out
to see some loosely piled lumber on a
fiat car next the caboose, and in moving
a board it caught in the ground in front,
and in a twinkling the swift motion of
the train drove it against Mr Kinmore,
knocking him backward. He struck the
track so that the forward wheels of the
caboose severed both legs from his body,
but it seems that he caught with his
hands on the next brake beam, cliuging
there till in a few moments he became
exhausted and fell, striking the track
this time so that both arms were cut off*
The top of his head was nearly all

From indications the grand concert to
be given by the Brehany Concert and
Ballad company at Turner Hall on Sun
day evening, April 30th, will be the suc
cess of the season. The program furn
ished by this company comprises vocal
and instrumental selections by each mem
ber. Amy Leslie, musical critic for the
Chicago Daily News, has the following
to say of Miss Brehany: "Louise Brehany.
the most delightful singer the manage
ment has furnished, repeated her success
of a month ago. She has a clear, sympa
thetic .soprano voice and much arch
grace and prettiness in manner. Her
selectioas were charming."
NEW ULM FIRMS SUCCESSFUL.
F. Nagel & Co. of this city were award
ed the contract for the mason work on
the Nelson & Riedel business block in
Sleepy Eye, arrangements haung been
completed Monday. The contract calls
for $4,583 and the contemplated building
will be 25x100. Work was begun at once.
H. Amme & Co., also of New Ulm have
the contract foi constructing Berg's Ho
tel at Sleepy Eye at the stipulated price
of $11,127. This coutiact as well as the
above mentioned, does not include the
heating apparatus etc., it calls only for
masomy and carpenter woik. As many
bidders were in the field, the New Ulm
firms deserve recognition for their enter
prise and success.
The committee on uniforms for the
fire department met Sunday merning at
the city clerk's office. The contract for
furnishing the forty-five uniforms was
awarded to John F. Neumann as the
lowest bidder at $10 per uniform, to be
delivered on May 20tb. The probabili
ties are that the department will turn
out in full force in their new uniforms,
including caps, on decoration day. The
caps will cost $2 a niece and are furn
ished by a Chicago firm. In order to
meet the bills the department must con
tribute $200 from its fund in addition
to the $400 appropriated by the city
council for uniforms.
Was He Kidnapped.
Otto Green an eleven-year-old boy
from Le Sueur has disappeared from his
borne Sunday a week ago. Mrs Engel
bert of this city, the sister of Mrs. Green,
was notified and at her instigation the
local police have kept a sharp look-out
for the missing boy.
Severalcovered wagons passing through
this city last week, containing horse jock
eys and all sorts of people were careful
ly investigated, as it is feared that the
boy has been kinnapped by this gentry.
Up to date no clue as to the whereabouts
of the missing boy could be found.
After April 15th '99.
The re-opening of the saloons, that
is the renewal of the licenses, took
effect Saturday, under the usual in
augural ceremonies. But little dis
turbance was noticed. Some smart
fellaws tried to get gay, but were
promptly brought back to their senses
without the interference of the club
brigade. The two new resorts, mention
of which have been made previously, are
in full operation, after the customary do
nation of $500 apiece to the city treas
ury. The old places have somewhat
clranged their old appearance, regarding
the proprietorship, but business is done
at the old stands just the same. New
Ulm compares favorably to Sleepy Eye.
The latter place with 1200 inhabitants
boasts of thirteen barrooms, while New
Ulm with 5000 thirsty souls only in
dulges in twenty-four. But then our
saloons have a greater capacity, as is be
fitting a city, and this tells the tale.
A Mild Sentence.,--
Herman Berberich, Gust. Millbrett,
August Blum, Alb. Quirain and Fritz
Schlag were arrested last Thursday even
ing for fishing in the Cottonwood out of
season. Their trial came up before Justice
Jacobs Monday evening and County At
torney Olsen prosecuted the case. Re
ferring to an old statute still on the books
ot law, Justice Jacobs imposed a fine of
$10 and $3.20 on each of the defendants,
while according to the new laws the min
imum fine would be $25. This leniency
might induce the culprits not to violate
the law again. Blum and Millbrett re
fused to pay the fine and went to jail,
while the others paid up promptly. Next
day they changed their mind and settled

Henry Crone Dangerously III.
Henry Croue went to Mankato last
Wednesday to be treated for some eye
trouble. Since that timehe was advised
to go to the twin cities as some new com
plications have developed. Yesterday
morning a telegram was received stating
that Mr. Henry Crone is dangerously ill
at St. Paul and at 11 o'clock yesterday
forenoon Mrs. Henry Crcne, Mr. Ferd.
Crone and Mr. Hy. Weyhe left for St.
Paul to attend the patient. It is to be
hoped that the report of Mr. Crone's
illness is greatly exaggerated

A regular meeting of the Commercial
Union was held Friday evening, April
14th, at Gebser's Hall. The mattei of
the proposed railroad construction to
this city was discussed thoroughly and
action taken to protect the city's inter
ests. Messrs. Liesch, Eibner, Wm. Brust
and Dirks were appointed a committee
to endeavor to secure subscriptions for
stock to the proposed cracker factory.
A resolution was adopted calling the at
tention of the city council to the condi
tion of the street and side-walk leading

There can be no doubt that the peo
ple of this country are divided over the
question of imperialism. They are unit
ed as to the necessity of maintaining the
power and authority of the United States,
but theie is a difference of opinion as to
how far the matter should be pushed.
William J. Bryan has opposed imper
ialism from the beginning of the contro
versy. In his new beok, entitled "From
Republic to Empire," Mr. Bryan says:
'•Imperialism finds its inspiration in
dollars, not in duty. It is not our duty
to burden our people with increased tax
es in order to give a few speculators an
opportunity for exploitation it is not
our duty to sacrifice the best blood of
our nation in tropical jungles in an at
tempt to stifle the sentiments which have
given vitality to American institutions
it is not our duty to deny to the people
of the Philippines the rights for which
our forefathers fought from Bunker
Hill to Yorktown. Imperialism has
been described as 'The White Man's

Burden.' But since it crushes the wealth
producer beneath an increasing weight
of taxes, it might with more propriety
be called 'The Poor Man's Load.'
This is an honest expression of opin
ion as to what imperialism means, and
will find a responsive echo in the hearts
of many Americans.
The issue of imperialism might have
been avoided. As Mr. Bryan says:
"If the peace commissioners had de
manded a harbor and coaling station in
the Philippines, and had required Spain
to surrender the rest of the land to the
Filipinos, as she surrendered Cuba to
the Cubans, we would not now be con
sidering how to let go of the islands. If
the sum of $20,000,000 had been neces
sary to secure Spain's release, the pay
ment of the amount by the Filipinos
might have been guaranteed by the Unit
But the peace commissioners did noth
