32 Hours From New York—First Train
to Arrive at 3:80 This
The first fast mail train between New York
and St. Paul will arrive in this city at 3:30
o'clock this afternoon, schedule time. This
is the inauguration of one of the most im
portant departures in the railway mail service
that has ever taken place in this countrv-.
Some time ago congress made an appro
priation to faciliate thc the transmission of
mail matter between the cast and the west,
the money to be disbursed under the direc
tion of the postmaster general of the United
The train which is expected to arrive at the
Union depot this afternoon is the first prac
tical illustration of the new departure.
Under the former system of transmission the
mail expected on this train would not be due
in St. Paul until to-morrow morning, the ef
fect of the special train being to shorten the
time between here and New York almost a
The running time between New York and
St. Paul by the special fast train is about
forty-four hours, allowing oue hour's differ
ence between eastern and western standard
lime. Leaving New York at 8:30 p. m. the
special steams into Chicago at 12:45 a. m. (a
little -past midnight) of the second morning,
and at 3:00 a. m., western time, starts for

Yesterday afternoon Postmaster Dr. Day
received the following telegram from Assist
ant Postmaster General Frauk Hatton:
Milwaukee, March 12.
Fast mail train over Milwaukee will reach St.
Paul at 3:80 to-morrow afternoon via. C. M. &

In respouse Dr. Day forwarded the follow
Washington, D. C.
To Frank llatton:
Permit me to tender you the thanks of our
citizens for the fast mail arranged for
David Day, P, M.
In response to inquires Dr. Day said that
he was of the impression that the same or
der providing for a fast mail train from the
east to the west, included a similar train
from St. Paul to New York, but of this he
could not speak definitely.
In addition to the great benefit arising
from tin- rapid transmission of mails, an
added advantage will accrue to the imbue in
the opportunity oppened for quick passenger
travel between the east and west, it being
understood that each train will have one or
two Bleeping coaches for thc accommodation
of the public at large.
TnE FIKST TBAIN.
As will be seen by the annexed telegrams
Hie special will convey, among other distin
guished passengers, Postmaster General
(lr.sham and Assistant Postmaster Frank
llatton and Supt. J. T. Clark, ofthe Chicago,
.Milwaukee A: St. Paul Railway company.
(nn Ai;o, March 12.—The last mail service
is to be extended to the northwest as far as
Minneapolis and St. Paul, Postmaster Gen
eral Gresham to-day entering into a contract
with the Chicago, .Milwaukee 6*, St. Paul road
to that end. The lirst train will leave here
at 3 o'clock to-morrow morning, reaching St.
Paul at 3:30 to-morrow afternoon
and Minneapolis at 4 o'clock,
connecting with the night trains out of those
cities. This brings the through mail service
from Xew York to St. Paul inside of 48 hours
and shortens the running time between Chi
cagoand St. Paul five and one-half hours,
and shortens the through eastern mail serv
ice about 15 hours. The contract between
ilie postal authorities and tbe railway com
pany runs for are year. Owing to the fact
that tbe arrangement was only consummated
this afternoon, railroad officials have not out
lined thc details for the running of the train
beyond the limitation of time between
Chicago and St. Paul. The train consists of
an engine and two postal cars, and only im
perative stops will be made. General (Ircs
liam, Assistant General Manager Miller, of
the St. Paul road, Mr. Hatton and a number
of other postoffice officials will be aboard the
traiu in its oflicial run, and will go through
to St. Paul. The statement having been
made that the Chicago and Northwestern
would put on another fast train between this
city and St. Paul, the ollicials of the latter
road deny the v report.

The for the St Paul
Nine for the Season.
Mr. H. W. Cory, who represented St. Paul
at the base ball meeting held in Chicago on
the 11, returned yesterday and represents
that the meeting was harmoni
ous and satisfactory. The prospects
are thatthe northwestern,Ieague will be suc
cessful and prosperous. Of course no one
can tell what the outcome will be. The be
ginning, however, is promi&ing. Mr. Hun
ter, the manager of the St. Paul club, is going
east the first of next week for the purpose of
securing men with which to fill up the team.
Quite a number are in view but it is very far
from being settled as to who will be selected.
There is no occasion, however, to be in a
hurry in regard to making selections for
there are a great number of men In the
country that can play ball well. The game
pays well now and ls one of tlie most profitable
kinds of employment. The consequence is
that an army of young men have gona into
it. The result is that although the league
clubs and all others are nearly filled up. there
is a large number of good players still left
from whicli to select. If judicious selections
are maile the St Paul club can
undoubtedly be made as good as any in the
league, and will probably be made so.
The grounds have been secured, and they
will be at the end of the street car line on
Fort street, just beyond the sliort line cross
ing. Grounds four hundred feet square
have been leased for a term of three years,
and as soon as the snow is off the ground
and the frost has relaxed his hold, the work
of preparation willbe begun. The grouud is
perfectly level so that It will not be necessary
to have any grading done. The field will
lirst be ploughed and then thoroughly rolled,
after which it will be sowed to grass.
As tin' club will open the season on the
1st of May, at Milwaukee, and remain abroad
till the 9th of June, when it commences in
St. Paul, the manager will have ample time
to put the grounds in the best order. It is
the intention to place the grand stand in one
corner and then lay out the diamond with
the catcher in front ofthe grand stand. This
will give the most room that can be
obtained from the square that has been se

NO FOOLING WITH THE LAW.
Judge Wilkin's Firm Hand in Dealing
With Infamous Criminals.
A motion was argued before Judge Wilkin
yesterday lo quash the indictment found
by thu grand jury against James Renehine,
the brutil savisher of Lizzie Gustavsou, in a
piece of woods on the highway between St.
Paul and Minneapolis several months ago,on
the ground that the indictment was improp
erly drawn. The judge very promptly denied
the motiou and the effort came to naught.
Renehine was afterwards brought before thc
court to answer to the indictment which it
had been found could not be set aside, aud
pleaded not guilty.
Application was made to Judge Wilkin
yesterday afternoon by the counsel of John
Sears, Thomas Gillispie and Patrick Flaherty
who committed a brutal assault and ravished
Pauliue Gabel on First street on the morning
of thc Drake block fire, for a change of venue
from Ramsey to sonic other county for their
trial. As with the Renehine case Judge
Wilkin promptly put his foot down on this
dodge of thc criminals to escape the justice
which they know will be meted out to them
by a jury of their fellow citizens.

The Kepler Case.
To the Editor of the Globe.
Permit me to say in reference to your re
marks in yesterday's Globe about the boy
August Kepler or Gable, that during the year
past I have had personal knowledge of fre
quent instanses of his soliciting aid for his
"sickmother and hungry sister,etc.,"wben she
was not sick but well able to work, and of bis
giving false statements as to their residence.
Saying, for example, that they lived near tbe
corner of Wabashaw and Iglehart, when they
were not and never have, Also that both the
boy and the father have been furnished easy
work, but would not do it, preferring to have
the boy beg. Also that Rev. E. R. Irmscher,
the city missionray, assures me that from per
sonal observation of the family he knows the
boy's recent statements in regard to their
sickness have been untrue.
If they must live without work, either from
incapacity or unwillingness, it would seem
the best way for the parents to be kept at
the county house and that some disposal be
made of the children by which they shaU not
grow up to be professional beggars. Re
spectfully yours, R. Hall,
Secretary Relief Soc.
[In spite of tbis rebutting testimony the
Globe has reason to believe that there is
something peculiar in this Kepler case and
that there are wheels within wheels which
make tbe prosecution of this boy a matter of
persecution to accomplish certain ends which
are not strictly tbe "ends of justice."—[Ed

MINNESOTA AND DAKOTA WHEAT.
Scientific Analysis made hy National
The extraordinary rapid growth of the
wheat crop in the northern part of this state
and Dakota last season, due to the unusually
backward and wet spring which delayed plow
ing some two or three weeks, had an Influ
ence In impairing the quality somewhat,
though not nearly to the extent that was
feared. The following analysis of a number
of the samples made by the assistant chemist
of the agricultural department at Washington,
D. C, shows not only that it is not deficient
in nutritious elements, but still possesses
a much larger share of them than is found
in either the spring or winter grains of this
country generally. The samples grown in
this state were not selected, but represent the
general average of the wheat grown north
of the 46th parallel.Of those fromDakotaand
from the Canadian provinces, nothing is
known as to whether they were selected or
not. Some of them probably were. For
convenience of comparison, they are ar
ranged in tabular form, viz:

A Mean Wretch—Old Timers—A Case
Which Should be Got Out of
Court by the Door of
"The wicked shall be dumfounded and
their devices put to shame," was the sapient
reflection of hizzoner as Jo. Welsh stood be
fore the judgment throne yesterday morning
to answer to the charge of drunk and dis
orderly. The fact is that Welsh is a genuine
artful dodger and he played about as meau a
trick last Tuesday as man's deprived nature is
capable of. On that day be called at
the office of tbe relief society and represent
ed that be was very hard up—so hard up, in
deed, that he had no clothes to cover his
nakedness. He bulldozed the old man in
charge into giving him a coat and vest, and
a short time afterwards he was caught in the
act of trying to sell the articles to the keeper
of a Seventh street saloon. He was prompt
ly yanked, and as the court gave him twenty
days he remarked that he deserved to have
the hose turned on him.
The next case was that of Brown, the per
ennial and immortal Brown. Tuesday night
he made a sneak on a box of goods at
Powell's store, aud he pinched several white
shirts. He was pursued and captured by a
very small, but "sandy" clerk in the store,
and turned over to a copper. He said yester
day that he didn't mind being arrested
but that it broke him all up to be taken in by
so small a man as the clerk. He will do the
buck-saw act for ninety days, and the June
cucumbers wUl be doing havoc with the race
when he gets out again.
Mike Donohue, another rounder, was up
on the charge of cabbaging an overcoat from
Pius Reid's place on East Third street. He
went to the workhouse for sixty days.
The little boy, Albert Keifer, an account
of whose arrest for begging appeared in
yesterday's issue of the GLOBE,was arraigned
on the charge of vagrancy. The hearing
was continued until to-day. The circum
stances of this case are peculiarly sad; the
lad's, parents reside in East St. Paul;
they are both sick and with a large
family of children. They are destitute of
clothing, food and fuel. It is a case that
calls for the active attention of the relief so
ciety and all that class of persons whose
claims of charity are manifested in their
works, and not in the empty vaporing of
Funeral of Mrs. Bowlin.
The funeral of the late Mrs. P. J. Bowlin
took place from St. Mary's church at 9:30
o'clock yesterday forenoon. High requiem
mass was celebrated, and the sacred edifice
was filled with sorrowing friends. The cere
monies were exceedingly solemn and im
pressive, a beautiful feature of the service
bciug the number of lovely floral
tributes- tendered by the friends ol Mrs.
Bowlin. A very eloquent sermon was
preached by the Rev. Father Calliet, after
which the remains were borne to Calvary
cemetery, the funeral being one of the largest
that has ever taken place in St. Paul. The
pall bearers were Messrs. M. J. Ryan, Sheriff
O'Gorman. P. Keigher, Henry Allen, John
Kenvin and D. F. MacCarthy.

A Suit for Damages.
In the trial of Jas. Hadalla against Wm.

sustained from a bursting boiler, S. L.
Pierce conducts the case for the plaintiff and
C. D. O'Brien that of the defendant. At 4
o'clock yesterday afternoon Mr. Pierce rested
the case when Mr. O'Brien moved that thc
action be dismissed on the ground that no
evidence had been adduced iu the testimony
that the defendant was guilty of negligence
in regard to his machinery or was responsi
ble in any way for the accident and injury.
This the plaintiff met with the statement
that witnesses had sworn to a known defect
in the boiler, that it had not been properly
cleaned out, and that its safety valve had
not been adjusted mechanically. Judge
Wilkins reserved his decision on the motion
until 10 o'clock to-day. This is the last jury

A Good Deal of Wrangling Between
the Counsels on Either Side.
Documents Presented Showing the Exceeding
Bad Reputation of Garfield an Elder.
Washington, March 12.—In Keifer-Boyn
ton investigation to-day, Judge Merrick ap
peared as counsel for Gen. Boynton. Much
time was consumed in attempts on tbe one
haud to secure the admission of evidence,
and on the other to exclude it, and in argu
ments and consultations between the mem
bers of the committee in regard to the points
The Hon. J. C. S. Blackburn was called
and examined by Gen. Keifer. He was a
member of the committee on rules in the
Forty-seventh congress. He said no rule or
practice of the house was known to him under
which a conference committee report upon
which a point of order had been raised that it
contained new legislation, could be sent to
the committee of the whole on the state of
Major McKinley, a member of congress
from Ohio was called. He was a member
of the conference committee of last congress
on the tariff bill. The last meeting of that
committee was held the day the tariff bill
was reported to the senate, but the witness
could not remember the date exactly. The
last night of the session was held very late,
and John Carson, clerk of the ways and
means committee was present. Witness
heard, by a current rumor, of propositions to
to defeat the bill by parliamentary
tactics, but had no personal knowledge of
any such purpose. He remembered that
General Keifer came to the committee room
on the occasion of its last meeting, and asked
witness about the points of difference, and
especially with regard to the wool schedule,
which was decided upon at that meeting. In
answer to Gen. Keifer, witness said, he had
heard no proposition to defeat the tariff bill
after it been reported to the house, by any
ruling of the speaker, and he knew no rule
under which that could have been done.
Coleman offered in evidence a number of
General Boynton's published despatches, of
a later date than March 3, 1883, to show that
the bitterness which was manifested therein
could not havc had origin in a motive so in
sutticient as the admission of outsiders to the
press gallery. The dispatches, were
ruled out by the committee. A
number of gentlemen, whose
names were Inaudibly stated, lawyers, doctors
and men about town, were called by (Jen.
Keifer. and questioned about J. W. Elder's
reputation for truth and veracity. They, for
tlie most part, testified that they knew Elder,
and never heard his good name questioned,
but did uot know anything about his reputa
Judge Merrick offered in evidence a copy
of the docker of the United States commis
sioner in WiUiams countv, Ohio, in the
•'United States vs. Chas. S."Garlield." The
charge was "selling forged circulating notes
of the United States." Tbe hearing took
place the Uth of January, 1S70. This was
offered in rebuttal of Garfield's testimoney
that he had never been arrested in Ohio.
The paper was not admitted. Judge Merrick
offered a copy of an indictment found by
thc grand jury of Indiana, of Charles S. Gar
field for breaking into a stable and stealing
two mares and a two-horse wagon. The
same document contained the record of the
dismissal of the suit. It was not received
by the committee.
Capt. Brooks, ohief of the secret service
division of the treasury department, was
called and sworn. He produced the back
records of his division, entitled "Description
and Information of Criminals." He turned
*o the instruction record of Charles S. Gar
fi-ld, Bryan, Ohio, which was as follows:
"C. S. Garfield, Bryan, Ohio, dealer in
counterfeit money, connected with Gardner,
a'ias Wilson, is about five feet eight inches
high, dark complexion, black moustache and
whiskers, thirty-five years of age, has been
two months in the army. Judge Merrick
submitted this record in evidence. Colemau
said this evidence was submitted yesterday
and ruled out, upon which conclusion wit
nesses left. This was an effort, he said, ma
liciously and meanly to get into thc Record
something to Injure Garfield. He said
his remarks did not apply to Judge
Merrick, whom he had never known to do
anything which was not straightforward.
The committee decided ttie evidence was in
competent, and the Record was not read.
Judge Merrick offered Elder's testimony in
the Kellogg-Spofford case. He said, it was
Elder's own evidence to his own character.
"I oiler the Record," said Merrick, "in
which he admits himself to be a liar in so
many words, and I presume from the Record
that I now offer, he, himself, if he testified
to the truth would swear he wak not to be be
lieved nnder oath. The Record shows he
made that admission, and that immediately
after making that statement, wheu pressed
on the question, by the senator from Massa
chusetts, Hoar, said the testimony of that
man could not be relied upou for
any purpose, and that any further
examination was unnecessary. A tribunal
of thc senate, before which he appeared as a
witness, was thus constrained to ignore him.
and spewed loin out, as it were, of the com
mittee." The committee was divided npon
the question of admitting tlie testimony, but
the majority opposed it, and was not admit
ted. Upon Coleman's request the sub-com
mittee decided to meet on Friday at Eider's
room, where he lies ill, to take his testimony
in explanation or refutation of thc charges
made with respect to his personal character.
Judge Merrick asked time to bring a witness
from Texas,to prove that Elder was a fugi
tive from justice in that state. Hccxhibtted
a telegram, which was not read, ac the foun
dation for his request. The request was not
granted. Adjourned till Friday.
