Yesterday was an event in the annals of St.
Paul. It was signalizedby the arrival of the first
fast mail train from the cast and makes the
opening of an era When the importance of
quick communication with the metropolis of
the northwest is recognized by the govern
ment- Tlie citizens were not unmindful of
this substantial recognition of our
growth aud importance, and when
the fast mail came thundering in at 3:22—
eight minutes ahead of time—a large con
course of people were gathered to welcome
it. Tlie locomotive wheels had not ceased to
revolve when the mail sacks came flying out
of the postal car aud were as quickly trans
ferred to the mail wagon, which immediately
started for the postoffice at a speed that
brought it there in three minutes.
JUIMIE GRESHAM SPEAKS.
Meanwhile the crowd had surged back to
the parlor car, which contained the dis
tinguished party who accompanied this in
augural trip of the fast mail, aud as the
local committee came out loud calls were
made for Postmaster General Gresham, who
came to the car door and was introduced by
Mr. P. II. Kelly. His appearance, was greeted
with three cheers and iu response to a de
mand for a speech, he said:
(i entlemen —I am pleased to meet
yen on this auspicious occasion
and to assure you that the
belief expressed by some that this fast traiu
is only a temporary arrangement is entirely
unfounded. ' This expedited train is no tem
porary arrangement. The great northwest
is entirely worthy of these new conven
iences. The fast mall train you uow have
Will uot be taken from you."
First Assistant Postmaster General Hatton
was theu called for, aud after being intro
duced by Mr. Kelly aud gracefully acknowl
edging the cheers whicli greeted him, spoke
"I am glad to meet you, gentlemen, and
hope vou will not think any the less of me
because I have been introduced by a Demo
crat who has been making a desperate ef
fort to get himself appointed postmaster of
St. I'aul on the ground that he is the only
Democrat in tlie city who can read real good
and the only one who can write at all. Gen
tlemen, I congratulate you on the accom
plishment of this great scheme and trust it
will be a means of advancing
your material interests and adding
to y.air comfort and convenience."
A number of leading citizens of St. Paul
were introduced to both Gen. Gresham and
Mr. Hatton, and a few old acquaintances of
both stepped Up and were gracefully recog
nized by the postal dignitaries, who showed
their qualification as politicians by calling
tbem by name and making inquiries about
members of the family ami other acquaint
By this time the train was ready to start for
MinneapoUs and pulled out of the depot
6eveu minutes alidad of time.
THE DELIVERY OF THE MAIL.
In thc city great interest was manifested in
the delivery of the first mail and thc post
office officials did their best to satisfy the
high expectations of the public. Superin
tendent Hardecker received the mail per
sonally atthe depot aud was a passenger on
the flying three-minute trip to the postoffice.
Arriving here the mail matter was haudled
with great dispatch, and before 4 o'clock the
carriers were ou the street delivering the
mail which had left Chicago not thirteeu
The business men especially were congrat
ulating themselves upon the increased ad
vantage of fast eastern communication, but
every one was highly pleased at the new

THE TRIP FROM CHICAGO
The train left Chicago promptly at S
o'clock yesterday morning. It was com
posed of oue eugiue,two mail cars, oue busi
ness car and the parlor car "Pacific." The
postal party occupied the parlor car and re
freshments were served in the business car.
The first stop was made at West Union,
sixty-two miles from Chicago, which point
the train reached at 4:40 a. m., and was
side tracked to allow a train to pass. From
there the train went through to Milwaukee
witliout stop, arriving at 5:20 a. in. The resi
dents of Milwaukee,by the new arrangement,
receive their eastern mail early in the morn
ing instead of at noon.
Between Milwaukee and La Crosse the
time made was: Oeonomowoc, 0:20 a. in.:
Watertown, 0:34; Columbus 7:1(5: Portage,
7:48; arriving at La Crosse at 10:53; seven
mihiites ahead of schedule time.
Leaving La Crosse at 10:58 the train
reached Winona at 11:50, having gained
by that time seventeen minutes
ou schedule time. At • this
point Gen. Gresham received a few callers in
his ear. A crowd of prominent citizens and
m w spaper men met the train, and the en
thusiasm was general. Among the callers
vas Postmaster Sinclair. From "Winoua to
St. Paul the trip was made in three hours and
thirty-two minutes, the only halt made be

As previously stated, the fast mail train
leaves Chicago at 03 a. m., arriving in
Milwaukee at 5:20 a. m., at Oeonomowoc at

Of course stops are not made at all these
points, but only at Milwaukee, LaCrosse and
Winona, besides the places where stops are
necessary for coal and water. At other
points the mail is caught up and thrown out
witliout slackening speed.
Special instructions have been issued by
the railroad officials to agents, trackmen,
switchmen and other employes, making it
direct personal duty to see that switches,
sidetracks and everything is clear and safe
for the passage of this fast train.
FROM SEW TORK.
The mall matter from the east, which
came in on the fast train, left
New York at 8:50 o'clock Tuesday night by
the new fast mail train over the New York
Central. At Albany the mall from Boston
and the New England states was put on
board, and at Buffalo, which was reached at
9 o'clock the next morning, the mail from
western New York was taken on . board. At
this point the train was switched
on to the Lake Shore & Michigan
Southern road, and immediately started west
again, reaching Cleveland at 1:37 p. m., and
Toledo at 5. At the junction near Toledo
the mail from Detroit and Michigan points
was received. The train reached Chicago at
12:35 a. m., and here transfers were made
for western and northwestern points.
GEN T. GRESHAM TALKS.
In an Interview with a Globe reporter
Gen. Gresham stated that the fast mall train
had only been definitely decided upon for
about two week's, although the project had
heen under discussion for some time previous.
In regard to the time of arrival of the train
in St. Paul, Gen. Gresham said that a good
many people thought it would be much better
to have it get here early in the morning
instead of in the afternoon, but
he explained that such a change would not
really be an advantage. It would then be
necessary to leave New York in the morning
instead of the evening, which would make a
practical delay of mall for thc whole night at
that point before starting. And the same
would hold true as to the starting of mail
trains from important eastern points to con
nect with the fast mail. In response to
a questfon whether the fast
snail train would carry passengers, Gen.
Gresham said that this was prohibited by the
department between New York and Chicago,
liut that no such prohibition was made be
tween Chicago and St. Paul, the matter be
ing left entirely with the railroad company.
The only thing insisted upon by the depart
ment was that schedule time should be
A FAST MAIL TRAIN EAST.
General Superintendent Thompson was
asked about the possibilities for a fast mall
train from St. Paul to Chicago and thence
east. He replied that there was uo Immedi
ate prospect of this. In the first place there
was no appropriation for it, and in the sec
ond place the demand for it was not so press
ing. Mail which now leaves St. Paul on the
noon train gets Into Chicago in time to be
distributed by the carriers on
their first trip the following
morning, which Is all that could be done if
a night train were run through in twelve
hours, and it was an easy matter for business
meu to get their mail for the cast ready for
the noon train. This train also made close
connections with fast trains for the east, so
that very little would be gained by a faster
train between Bt. Paul and Chicago.
When the fast mail readied Minneapolis
at 3:56 it had been just forty-three hours and
six minutes in transit from New York. No
special demonstrations of welcome were
made at the depot, but the party were taken
at once in carriages to thc postoffice, where
a reception was held until nearly G o'clock,
many prominent citizens paying their re
spects to Gen. Gresham. Meanwhile, the
pouches of mail matter had been takeu to
the postoffiee, and the entire force put at the
work of distribution, the carriers being out
on the street before 5 o'clock.
The mail brought in by the fast train willbe
distributed through the business portions of
the city us soon as it arrives, but matter for
the outlylug districts will He over'until the
next tnonling, it being impossible to make a
late delivery there.
RETLHX TO ST. PAUL.
At fi o'clocji just before the regular train
started, the special bearing the postal party
pulled out on the return trip to St. Paul
which city was reached at 6:25. The party
were met at the depot by a committee of citi
zens, and taken on a drive about the city in
In the Kretting.
After the party had been driven about the
city they were landed at the spacious man
sion of Hon. P. H. Kelly, on Dayton bluff,
and were made so thoroughly at home by their
host that they felt as though they were old
resideuts of St. Paul. Mr. Kelly had in
vited a few citizens, such as could be seen in
the brief time allowed for making the
arrangement, to meet the distinguished
party, and pending their arrival dinner was
served, the guests having had' no opportunity
for refreshment since midday. The
party at the dinner table over which
Mr. Kelly presided, was a- follows:
W. S. Gresham, postmaster general.
Frank H. Hatton first assistant postma-ter
W. IJ. Thompson, general superintendent of
the New York mail service.
James E. White, Superintendent of thc sixth
division railway mail service.

the Milwaukee road. •

frtmi St. Paul;
Gen. John B. Sanborn.

When the dinner was concluded Gen.
Gresham nnd Frauk Hattentook positions in
one of the parlors, and Mr. Kelly introduced
the visitors to the former and Dr.
Day to the latter. The reception was
brief and informal and was followed
by the party visiting the refreshment room,
conversing with Gen. Gresham, and other
members of the party and indulging in a
general congratulation over of the inaugra
tion of fas. mail from New York to St. Paul.
About 10 p. m., the visitors bid their host
and the distinguished guests good night.
THE ST. PAUL DAILY GLOBE, FRIDAY MORNING, MARCH 14, 1884.
Under the guidance of postmaster Day, Geo.
R. Finch and others, Gen. Gresham's party
was escorted to the union depot and prompt
ly at 10:30 p. m., the special fast mall train
left for the return to Chicago.
The principal officers of the Chicago, Mil
waukee & St. Paul road, were interviewed
yesterday as to whether or not passengers
would be carried on the fast mail train, and
they declared that they had no knowledge
on that point. The contract was executed
in Chicago for carrying the mail and
they did not know the terms of
it. It was a matter of no
consequence to the government whether the
road carried passengers or not so the fast
mail was taken through to its destination in
time. They said that after the system is put
into settled working order there was no
doubt they would carry passengers as well
as the mails.
Fast Mail Train on the Northern Paeific.
In view of the general desire for fast mail
trains, and in accordance with the arrange
ments that were partially completed several
weeks ago, the Northern Pacific road will put
on a fast mail train to leave St. Paul at 4
o'clock in the afternoon, making the time
from St. Paul to Portland in ninety hours
and to Puget sound, New' Tacoma in 100
hours. This will make the time to Farg*o
one hour shorter than at present. It will be
three or four weeks before arrangements can
be perfected for this fast mail connection.
When that is done, that will bo the direct
through Northern Pacific train. There will
then be three trains daily on the Northern
Paeific, one leaving in the morning and an
other in the evening as at present. There
will be through trains to Bismarck and from
there run as day express and mail trains.

Ofthe play an exchange has the following:
Roland Reed is certainly cheeky from the
word go. Cheek oozes out of him at every
pore, and there i6 a placid, gilt edged audac
ity in him which is charming in its undis
guised sincerity. The play itself is a good
and a rollicking one. Natural in its situa
tions, easy in its incidents, smart and spark
ling in its dialogues and rich in its never
ending fun. It is a play in which you find lots
to amuse, something to profit by and a
great deal to remember with pleasure. And
Dick Smythe, the Bohemian, the audacious
hanger-on of sensational papers, and the
blushless representative of irresponsible
journalism—what a canvasser he would have
made for a religious paper. There is some
thing sublime in his cool effrontry and reck
less disregard for conventionalities which
makes us glad that we have known him and
had a good smile over his free and easy ad
ventures. We feel better for having met a
man who should be known by every reporter,
tax-collector, deacon and book agent in the
country. They'd all be able to get a few
pointers out of Dick Smythe.

Mr. Collin8 came in from Red Wing a few
days ago, and like most young men from the
country, he wanted to do the rounds and
paitit the town red. Wednesday night he
boarded a great deal of bug juice and tried to

to say, was not accomplished. When put in
to a cell he vented his spleen by smashing
things. Judge Hall, who occupied the bench
yeterday, thought twenty days would do him
good and he went out.
Yesterday about noon there was a lively
scraping match out ou Eleventh street. Wm.
Brown was engaged in sawing
wood and he was piped off by
an aged man named Hiram Andrew. The
latter had a grudge against Brown, and uot
being able to whip him himself, he employed
a big duffer named Max McLain to do up the
job. Max is a fighting man and he went up
and tackled Brown as the latter sawed wood.
Brown had an axe in his hand, and there
would have been a lively picnic had not

The " Old Man " (Iocs For the Courteous
To the Editor of the Globe:
St. Pail, March 13.—My attention has
just been called to your report of the Jo
Welsh ease in the municipal court of yester
day morning, in which your reporter says:
"on that day he called at the oflice of the re
lief society and bulldozed the old man in
charge into giving him a coat and vest, and
3 sjiort time afterwards was caught in the act
of selliug the articles to a Seventh street sa
loon keeper," etc., etc. The relief secretary
has indeed seen too rrtiiny years to deny the
charge of being an "old inun," and he has
not been accustomed to consider the fact of
age to be a dishonor. Your reporter's char
acterization, "the old mau in charge," it is
true does not souud respectful: yet as it is
not to be expected that a GLOBE reporter
should pay attention to sound I let that pass.
I won't, however, express my approba
ion of t he term "bulldozed," as
indicating admirably just what Jo Welsh, —If
that was his name, albeit the name he gave
to the relief secretary was Jos Williams—at
tempted at last to do, although he was not as
successful as your courteous reporter seems to
think, in actually doing it. His coat and
vest were ragged enough to make in them
selves a strong appeal to charity for better
ones. But Jo was not allowed to go into the
clothing room, as he attempted to do, and
make his own selection, and wheu after re
ceiving these two articles of clothing, iu re
sponse to a somewhat beseeching request,
he grew bolder and when his manner of ask
ing for a hat quite justified your courteous
reporter's well selected term of "bulldozing,"
he was quietly told to leave the room with
out the hat, and he did so.
Lest your readers should conclude that the
"bulldozing" style ou the part of applicants
for relief is the one most likely to succeed, I
hope you will admit this explanation. Re
spectfully, R. Hall,

While recognizing the force of this senti

unmistakable evidence of the fact, that the
want of bread, that famine, is not the only

She Wants a Divorce.
An action for divorce has been commenced
in the district court by Emma Sloan against
her husband, Wm. R. Sloan, on the grounds
of cruel and inhuman treatment, and habit

action it is alleged that he has repeatedly
struck her with his fist, called her vile names
and on one occasion he dragged her out of
bed by the hair. She also asks for the cus
tody of their two children. Pl-untiff Le

The Larimore rioneer says: Mr. O. M.

Mouse river ranch from St. Louis, beiug in

the Blue Grass Jistricts of Missouri two car
loads of short horn grade Hereford heifers,
whicii he would have shipped in June to his

stock for sale iu Montana to cross with range
cattle in that great grazing ground. Mr.
Towner says the Mouse river country is admi
rably adapted by nature for cattle. The val
ley overflows every year, excluding it from
agriculture and stimulating the development
of a rank growth of bule stem grass, whicli
makes a splendid quality of hay, which may
be cut for winter feed.
There is a good deal of suspicion and
feeling manifested in the 'Grand Forks re
gion over the recent advent from Red Lake
Falls, Minn., of Mr. and Mrs. A. E. Wilder,
on account of a scandal that caused their re
moval to Dakota. Mrs. Wilder is the daugh
ter of the Adventist pastor at Montlcello,
and much esteemed. They were married on
the 15th of September last, and on the 18th
of March she is alleged to have had a child.
Mr.-Wilder claimed that it was in an em
bryofial condition and that he carried it to
the rtV<;r....nearly a mile and threw
ft in. No' doctor was employed and no lady
friend of Mrs. W. allowed to visit her for ten
days after. Many of the people thought It
was a live, full developed child and tried to
get a legal investigation, before which Mr.
\V. saw tit to remove to Dakota.
The Grand Forks Plaindedler has inter
viewed Wm. Johnson, of that section, who
has just returned from a visit to his former
home in Ontario, Canada, and says: Mr.
Johhson came to Dakota two years ago a poor
man. and is now the possessore! property in
Pembina county which brings him in Un
handsome income of two thousand dollars a
year. He passed the winter at his old home,
and made, arrangements for bringing out his
family, wiio will eome out about the first of
May. He referred to numerous cases in
which parties coming from his community
to Dakota had invariably succeeded in accu
mulating valuable property. He says tliat
he expects over a hundred families of his
Canadian 'acquaintances out here in the
spring, and says that the popular feeling in
favor of Dakota throughout the province i
very enthusiastic, and is growing more in
tense every day.
A soldier at Fort Yates, in writing east to
a friend recalls an incident that occurred last
fall: "There are 7.000 Sioux Indians at this
agency. Sitting; Bull and all the rest of tie
noted\SiOU_x. tribes are here, and I wa- at ;i
council held _it the agency between Sen at r
Logan and some others and Sitting Bull and
some" of the bead chiefs, and Sitting Bull told
Senator Logan that he came there to talk
with wise men and not men who were drunk
as he (Logan) ami the others were. He then
spoke pometbiugn in Iudian to the chiefs
aiid thc council broke up. Sitting Bull was
arrested and made to ask pardon of Login.''
Somehow the Associated Press did not get
hold of that little morsel; but an apology
forced out of Sitting Bull at the point of a
bayonet must have been very unsatisfactory
to a warrior like Logan. It was a verv
"pointed" apology, il is true, but the point
was turned the wrong way.
The Helena Herald says of the two points
on the Northern Paciiic that lead to the
mines: Thompson Falls and Belknap are
both booming, and have about 300 and 500
inhabitants respectively. Both towns- are
workingon separate trails tothe Coeur d'Alene
mines, and their roads will not join, as be
fore reported. Thompson Falls City is loca
ted on the Clarke's Fork river, and the rail
road presents the finest location for business
and dwelling houses, und forms one of the
most desirable connections with the new
Eldorado by way of the old Indian trail
up Prospect creek and over the range, to the
head of Prichard creek on the west side. Our
informant says the present wagon road
from Thompson Falls City isa good trotting
road for twenty miles to the eastern base of
the Cneur d'Alene range then a workedtrail to
the top of the range and over the western
base, where Is located Raven City, surround
ed by rich placer mines cn the head of
Pritchard Creek. The distance between
these two embryo cities is about 30 miles,
and the present main travel to the mines is
by this route. The river is open and foot
travelers are ferried over by small boats.
Wm.Rea,one of the mostsuccessfuljbonan
za farmers and settlers in the Red river val
ley, near Fargo, in an interview, does not
take a hopeful view of the Hudson Bay rail
road scheme as an outlet of the produce of
Red river region. He regards the objection
that the wheat grower can not get his product
to market for nearly a year after its growth is
a fatal one, and that the railroad will be own
ed in Canada, and used entirely for,the bene
fit of that section, not this side of the
line. He gives as an illustration of
how the farmers are at the mercy of the N.
R.s and the Millers' association, the state
ment that a party wanted to buy 1,200 bushels
of seed wheat of him to ship to Hope, in
Steele, a county adjoining Cass on the
north. It was found, he says, that the freight
from Fargo to Hope would be 40 cents a
bushel, while by buying of the Millers' asso
ciation at Minneapolis it could be hauled to
Hope for 12 cents. Mr. Rea thinks that op
position and competition are the only means
to break the monopoly. He has no "faith In

In the dearth of local events the Larimore
Leader relates this instance of misplaced con
fidence in which one Mclntyre is Interested:
There i.s a certain yonng man In this city
who of late has spruced up considerably,
and considers himself a dude. He thought
it would be S fine thing to make a mash, and
considered the Commercial hotel a good
place to commence operations. One day last
week he made his way there and slice.nled
in getting himself introduced to the girls em
ployed in the house, and invited one of thein
to accompany him to the rink in the even
ing. She very gracefully accepted the Invi
tation, and after he took his departure she
thought it would be a capital idea to play a
joke on him. She therefor.- ma.le the boya
in the hotel acquainted with tbe situation ol
affairs, and they at once commenced opera'
ations At the hotel there is a youth who
resembles the young lady very much
in size ami height, whom they
dressed up ln female attire and placed him
in the parlor to await the dudes airival. Soon
after dark the young man put in an appear
ance, and with a smile childlike and bland,
led forth his charmer. After proceeding a
short distance, and when near the end of the
Klk Valley hank, his ilucelina informed him
that some of h.r underclothing was coming
off, and invited him to step behind the hank
and help her to s. cure them. The dude was
struck dumb at the request. He stood re
garding her for a moment, with horror pic
tured upon his countenance, while great
drops of perspiration started from every
por.-. then he gave a yell thai was heard for
blocks around, and started dOWU the street
at breakneck speed and was soon lost Bight
of in the darkuess.
There is undoubtedly some stir of late

to provide an effective agency for the absorp
