to be alone in the store, taking $34 in cash

There was filed with the register of deeds

Pillsbury, as administrator of the estate of
George A. Scripps, who died in Illinois in
November 1859, conveying to the chamber
of commerce of Minneapolis, in considera
tion of one dollar, lots 9 and 10 of block 67.
The executors of the estate failed to present
the will for probate in this state, but in
1864 they transferred their interest in
the estate and that interest is now vested in
the chamber of commerce. On the 7th of
last January the will was admitted to probate
in Hennepin county when Mr. Pillsbury was
appointed administrator and the probate
court assigned tbe property in question to
tbe chamber of commerce.
Charles H. Herms, a correspondent of
the Minneapolis Free Press, advances the fol
lowing respecting licenses and the manage
ment of saloons in this city:
First, place the liquor license at §200,
which he says is certainly not too much, and
which every responsible saloon keeper can
pay. Tncn make a special license of $2,000
for concert saloons, and also forbid them to
carry on their business with open doors upon
the "leading streets, but to confine their wares
to the rear rooms so that it may not annoy
or entice passera by. Third, require each
person who takes out a license of either kind
to get three responsible citizens on his bond.
Then, says Mr. Herms, "the good saloon
keepers would not have their business destroy
ed, and above all, we wonld no longer hear
tbe complaint that there was too many sa
loons in the city."
The city council will hold a regular meet

call of the calendar before setting the cases
for trial. The entire number of cases on the
calendar Is 448, four of which are criminal
cases, and 254 are continued from previous

son, embezzlement from Farnham & Love

It was noon before the preliminary call was
finished, and then an adjournment was taken
until 2 o'clock.
THE GRAND JURY.
When the names of the grand jurors were
calle d five failed to answer to their names
and two were excused. The following gen
tlemen constitute the grand jury for this
J. H. Thompson, A. C. Kimball, L.
Longfellow, W. E. Evans, John Lucas, J.
G. McFarlane, H. F. Lafiin, James Cullen,
Sr., A. W. Latham, S. Parsland, O. C.
Meeker, Earl Halsington, Robert Adcock, J.
F. Peterson, J. H. Lydiard, George Goodrich,
Charles Hahag, E. C. Parker, N. H. Batton,
R. P. Russell.
J. H. Thompson was appointed foreman,
and after the oath had been administred
Judge Koon addressed the jury briefly, as
JUDGE KOON'S CHARGE.
The judge said the duties
of the jury were outlined
in the oath just administered, but they were
more specifically stated in the statutes whieh
he proceeded to read. The duties of the
grand jury need not necessarily be confined
to the work brought before their notice
through the medium of the court. If any
member of the jury knew aught pertaining
to the welfare of the city, it was his duty to
apprise his fellow jurors of it in order that a
thorough investigation of the same be made.
Of late there had been an unusually
large amount of highway robberies, assaults
upon citizens for the purpose of robbing
them and upon ladies for baser purposes and
these matters demanded the serious consider
ation of the grand jury. The selling of liquors
to minors, the gambling houses and houses
of ill-fame were evils that demanded a thor
ough investigation at their hands, in order
that the city may be released from the law
lessness that afflicts it in that direction.
Deputy Sheriff Shepley then took charge
of the jury who retired to an inner room to
discharge their duties. The jury during the
session, which closed at 4 o'clock considered
the cases of Geo. N. Bard charged with the
larceny of a harness from P. Osander, and
also the case of John Johnson charged with
intent to commit larceny.
In the case of Jacob Wehman, charged
with assault with a dangerous weapon
and in that of the state against
H. G. Merrill, a nolle prosique

in the following cases: Wm. F. Thompson,
Walter A. Carpenter, Fred C. Penny and
Robert S. McMurdy.

were postponed until to-day.

The license question is yet claiming a
large share of attantion. What the final re
sult will be is a matter the future alone can
solve. It is understood that a counter move

Fairbault guarantees to pay all express if Prof.
Gutterson will produce the " Creation " in that

should ever be needed. It was for the lack of
this guarantee that Professor Gtuterson was un
able to give to Owatonna, perhaps, the sweetest
and most entertaining of all classic melodramas,
namely, "The Creation."
This renowned piece, in this state, has never
been produced in all its parts. Fine talents, well
cultivated, are all that the public should ask for
to guarantee such a piece abundance of success.

beautiful by far,
This ijjjieually the case with brass hands, hi

which calls for band music tbe citizens must
have some other hand and not their own, thus

giving to others the money that their home band
should have that it might enable it to afford more

Let us encourage home talents.

LOGAN AS A CANDIDATE.
[Detroit Free Press.]
If Logan goes into the fight he will, to do
him justice, go in as he always does, in the
hope of -winning. He has several advant
ages as a candidate. He is popular with the
soldiers; he has kept clear of scandals; he
represents in some degree the "Wild West"
and has no bitter personal enemies. His
weak points are his stalwartism and the rival
ship of Lincoln in Illinois.
THE PENNSYLVANIA MACniNE.
[Colonel Quay, in the Pittsburg Commercial-Ga
"I see that Payne says the state is being
set up for Logan, and that I am to run the
state convention because Mr. Cameron is
committed to Arthur."
"What is there in the story?"
'"Well, they may be hatching some scheme
over there in Washington that I know noth
ing about," said the colonel, with another
laugh. "I really don't think any work is be
ing done in the state for anybody, unless it
may be for Blaine, and then it is nothis
consent, but is being done by men who want
to go to the national convention. You know
there is a strong Blaine sentiment in the
state, but I have no idea that be will be a
candidate for the nomination. Remember,
I say that no work is being done to my
knowledge. I would be very likely to know
if such a thing were going on."
"Has any word of a political nature been
received from Senator Cameron?"
"Not that I know of of. I think his inten
tion is to remain abroad until he is a per
fectly well man. There is no telling when
he will return." . 1
"How will Logan suit you?" si ol
"Oh, very well, I think the west will

"No," said Mr. Calkins; "his views upon

with the principles of the party. He is a
good enough Republican for any one. He

"H Mr. Arthur should get the nomination,

diana and Ohio ?" asked the Star.
"He would have a much better chance in
Indiana than in either of the other states,but
I think he would carry them. It is hard to

NOT HOPEFUL ABOUT ARTHUR AND LOGAN.
[From the Bnffalo Express.]
Whatever the strength of Messrs. Arthur
and Logan with the delegates, it will be much
less with the people. Few intelligent Repub
licans believe that the State could
be carried for Arthur. He may get
the New York delegates through
O'Brien, the Brooklyn delegates
by the assistance of Dady, the Washington
county delegates by aid of Smart, the Albany
delegates by aid of Draper, the Erie delegates
by aid of Warren, etc. But none of these
henchmen can carry his county unless the
Republicans who refuse to follow the machine
are satisfied. General Logan's strength in
Illinois is but little more substantial than Mr.
Arthur's in New York. Neither of them
could go before the country with any hope of
a cordial Republican support. But, we be
lieve, neither of them is likely to go before
the country at all.
Abigail Adams, the President's wife was
undoubtedly the most conspicuous Ameri
can woman of her day, whether by position or
by character. When writing to her husband
she signed herself "Portia," in accordance
with a stately and perhaps rather high-flown,
habit of the period, and she certainly showed
qualities which would have done honor to
either the Roman or Shakespearean heroine
of that name. In her letters we see her
thoroughly revealed. While the battle of
Bunker Hill was in progress, she wrote that
it was "dreadful but glorious;" and in the
depression of the battle of Long Island she
said, "HallAmerica is to be ruined and
undone by a pack of cowards and knaves, I
wish to know it," and added, "Don't you
know me better than to think me a coward?"
When, first among American women, she
represented her nation at the court of St.
James, she met with equal pride the con
temptous demeanor of Queen Charlotte; and
when her husband was chosen President,
she wrote to him, "My feelings are not those
of pride or ostentation upon the occasion;
they are solemnilled by a sense of the obliga
tions, the important truths and numerous
duties, connected,with it," When finally,
after four years, he failed of re-election, she
wrote to her son: "The consequence to us
is personally that we retire from public life.
For myself and family I have few regrets. .
. . If I did not rise with dignity, I ean at
least fall with ease." This waa Abigail
In person she was distinguished and noble
rather than beautiful, yet it is satisfactory to
know that when she was first presented at
the British court she wore a white lustering,
trimmed with white crape, festooned with
lilne ribbon and mock point-lace over a hoop
of enormous extent, with a narrow train three
yards long, looped up by a ribbon, She wore
tredle lace ruffles, a lace cap with long
lace laplets and two white plumes,
these last doubtless soaring straight into the
air above her head in the extraordinary style
familiar to us in Gillray's caricatures of that
It was, in thoie days, no very agreeable
task to be the wife of the president. Mrs.
Adams has left on record a graphic sketch of
the White House, where she presided for
three months. The change in the seat of
government had been decided upon for twelve
years, yet the building was still a vast unfin
ished barrack, with a few rooms plastered,
no main stairway, not a bell within, nor a
fence without; it was distressingly cold in
winter, while the Chief Maristrate of the
United States could not obtain for love or
money a man to cut wood for him in the
forests which then surrounded Washington.
From Washington to Baltimore
extended an almost unbroken
growth of timber, varied only by some small
and widowless huts. There could as yet be
in Washington no such varied companionship
as had given attraction to the seat of govern
ment at New York and then at Philadelphia;
yet at Georgetown there was a society which
called itself eminently polite, and Mrs.
Adams records that she returned fifteen calls
in a single day.—T. W. Higginson, in Har
per's Magazine for March.
TJ. S. Grant Again.
Toledo, O., Feb. 19.—The Blade has re
ceived another letter from General Grant in
relation to the controversy over the battle of
Cold Harbor as follows:
New York, Feb. 14, 1884. To the editor
of the Blade: Dear Sir: In further reply
to yours of the 31st ult., in relation to the
battle of Cold Harbor. Since writing you on
the 7th inst., I have thought about it, and
have a sort of indistinct recollections that I
did issue orders for another attack, but came
to the conclusion myself, and without con
sultation that it would prove a failure and
leave no compensating results and I simply
sent word verbally to the corps commanders
before the time ordered for that attack to sus
pend, and then made my arrangements for
a final left flank movement north of the
James. Truly yours,
[Stgned] xJ. S. Grant.

Chicago, Feb. 19.—The Western Export
association met to-day for the purpose of re

a run to the extent of only
30 per cent. of their capacity.

their capacity in that time amountingto 150,

they be paid $30,000 therefor, an additional
$60,000 being set aside to take care of the sur
plusage. The price of high wines was ad
vanced from [.$1.14 to $1.15, Cincinnati

How Hon. Alex. McKenzie Found Mat
ters at the National Capital.
Hon. Alex. McKenzie, of Bismarck, was a
brief sojourner in St. Paul yesterday, on his
return from Washington, where he has passed
a month in a fruitless endeavor to secure tbe
admission of Dakota into the sisterhood of
states. Mr.McKenzie is not of a sanguine tem
perament, and when encountered by a Globe
representative just before his departure for
the northwest—"only forty miles from the
geographical center of Dakota territory,"—
he had but little to say, an exception with
the genial sheriff of Burleigh county.
"But how about your trip to Washington?
Couldn't you accomplish anything?" was
the query of the Globe representative.
"Well," replied Mr. McKenzie, "When I
got there I found there were too many people
with too many schemes on hand, from Da
kota, and but little could be accomplished."
"But you went to Washington with a pur
"Certainly. I was prepared to urge the
admission of Dakota as she at present stands
as a state or to favor the division, as pro
jected. But I soon found it was no use. A
Democratic congress will never consent to
the admission of a Republican territory, es
pecially such a territory as Dakota, where the
votes are almost ten to one on the wrong
"Then you consider the chances of the ad
mission of Dakota as rather sliml"
"Absolutely hopeless at present. The only
hope we have" is to wait till there is a change
in the national administration. In that
event I have no doubt Dakota will wheel into
line and we will be admitted, but not
"You spoke of a large Dakota delegation
being in Washington. What is the occasion
of the assemblage?"
"Ordway. Although I am a Democrat I
have always stood by Ordway. There have
been any number of charges made
against the governor, and I know personally
that the majority of them are false. If I was
given to profane language, I would ssy that
they are as false as h—1. He has been ac
cused of making money out of the location
of the capital at Bismarck. Now I know
about as muchof that arrangement as any
body in the territory, and I can tell you that
Gov. Ordway didn't want the capital located
at Bismarck. His interests were all at
Pierre, and those interests would have been
subserved best by having the capital fixed at
that point. But I can say that, although I
was the only Democrat on the commission,
and was on personal and friendly terms with
the governor, I was never approached by him
or any one in his interest on the subject.
When I use the word "approached" I wish
you to understand that there is no sug
gestion of improper influences, and I use it
only as implying arguments."
"Is Gov. Ordway popular in Dakota gener
*'No; I can scarcely say he is. But he is
greatly misunderstood, according to my way
of thinking. fcWe might go a good deal
further and fare worse. Of course, I would
prefer to have a good Democrat in the office,
but as long as we have got to have a Repub
lican, I see no objection to Ordway."
"How about the capital location."
"Weil, I guess that's all settled. I found
a crowd down in Washington who were as
serting that not a stone or a brick had been
laid on the new capitol. I got a cut made
and printed in the-government paper, the
Republican, showing how much has been
done. The building is as good as completed,
and is a better one than you have in St.
Paul. The work speaks for itself, and I
don't believe anybody connected with the
affair has any occasion to regret what he has
done. For my own part I have no regrets,
for I know I acted for the best interests of the
people of the territory."
County Commissioners Association.
The county commissioners of Cass count
to-day prepared a call to be addressed to all
the county boards in Dakota, in which they
say: Believing that many changes in the
laws of this territory, governing the action of
county commissioners, are necessary, and
that additional legislation is im
peratively demanded to protect
the interests and equalize the
burthens of taxation, in the various counties,
and that in meeting changes or amending
our present laws, or in making new laws,
the county commissioners are interested for
the welfare of their several counties, and
know their needs, and have had experience
trying to govern and administer the affairs of
counties under existing laws, and
believing an association of the com
missioners of the various counties
in the territory will greatly aid In perfecting
the laws, therefore, we extend an Invitation
to all county boards to be present at a meet
ing of commissioners of the various counties
of Dakota, to be held in the city of Fargo, on
Tuesday, May 20, 1884, for the purposes

It is said that there is a mill dam built
across the outlet of Big Stone lake at Big
Stone City, which prevents the fish from
coming up from the river in the sprint:, into
the lake. The result is to cause a blockade
of fish to take place below the dam every
spring, and it is reported that the people
throw out on the shore wagon loads of fish
with pitch forks, where the most of the liah
lay and rot.
The Bismarck Tribune has assurances that
the Northern Pacific railroad will issue a

There were 75,000 acres in land claims
filed at Devil's Lake the past week. A large
number of new towns have been returned
recently and there is great activity iu land
matters there. One of tbe local papers there
says that "claim jumpers arc just as thick as
fiddlers in hades." From the satanie name
of the place it might be supposed that such
comparisons could be made with unusual
pertinency. There is a phenomenal amount
of fiddling done at Devil's Lake, and will lie
doubtlesss other violent incidents growing
out of claim jumping.
The appointment of C. S. Palmer for Judge
to fill the vacancy, if secured as expected,
will furnish another illustration, of toe theory
that north Dakota has politicians who are
more adept than those of the Booth in gather
ing in the good things exposed upon the
the public platter. As judge, Mr. Palmer
will be able to give the casting vote in the
capitol commission. He has lately invested
in north Dakota lands, and those with the
requisite prescience to discern tin:
future and the workings of ju
dicial minds, have no apprehensions
that the result will not vindicate the confi
dence reposed in him. No other interest in
volved at Washington has more pressing in
terest to viewers of the rising edifice on the
Big Muddy than this.
The Flandrau Enterprise, which is one of
the finest weeklies in south Dakota, says
that smooth tongued cloth peddlers are work
ing Moody county in this way: They first
hold out a bait by taking orders for a lot of
calicoes, linen, toweling, sacks, etc., at
prices far below what the goods can be sold
for, by representing that they arc agents for
some insurance company and that the goods
so offered have been slightly damaged; by lire.
Having taken this order, which is to be filled
some fature day, probably never, they pro
ceed to disclose a lot of tloth and other goods
which they have with them, and will only
make a sale provided eighty-five dollars
worth is purchased, which they will sell
wholly on time and take a chattel mortgage
to secure the amount.
F. W. McKinney, secretary of the Bis
marck chamber of commerce, has spent
several weeks booming Dakota in the New
England states and New York, and reports a
general interest growingup in those sections.
In the towns of Rushford, Cuba, and Olean,
Alleghany county, N. Y., he succeeded in
forming the nucleus of a colony of one hun

agents through the cast who are paid a com
mission of from §5 to #10 a head for settlers
secured for the lines of that road. The road

There is the livest competition between
Dickinson and Medora,the latter the Marquis
de Mores town, for the freight traffic to the
Black Hills. The Medora Cowboy says:
The gaining of the freight and mail route
will make this point of the liveliest on the
N. P. road. It is estimated that at least 10,
000,000 ponds of freight will be shipped over
the route yearly. This will take hundreds
of wagons and men, all with their headquar
ters here. The route from Dickinson is at
best a poor one and at certain seasons, al
most impassable. Rates have been made
withe Rock Island and N. P. roads, by which
freight can be transported from Chicago to
Deadwood via Medora cheaper than by any
other route in the United Stats s. If
necessary, there are millions to back the
plan and everything tends to a positive be
lief that the route will be in full operation
from thi3 point in a short time.
