I told my secret to the sweet wild roses,
Heavy with dew, new-waking in the morn,
And they had breathed it to a thousand others
Before another day was slowly born.
"O fickle roses 1" said I, "you shall perish!"
So plucked them for my lady sweet to wear
In the pure silence of her maiden bosom,
The curled luxuriance of her chestnut hair.
I told the secret to a bird new building
Her nest at peace within the spreading tree,
And ere her children had begun to chatter
She told it o'er and o'er right joyously.
0 traitor bird!" I whispered, stay thy singing;
Thou doest not know, there in thy nest above,
That secrets are not made to tell to others;
That silence is the birthright of true love!"
1 told the secret to my love, my lady;
She held it closely to her darling breast
Then us I clasped her came a tiny whisper:
"The birds and flowers told me all the rest.
Nor bbouldst thou chide them that they speak
The whole world is a chord of love divine
And birds and flowers but fulfil their mission
In telling secrets sweet as mine and thine!"

Special Correspondence of the Daily Globe:
Bozeman, March 12.—The latter part of
February and the opening days of this month
we had delightful weather. No snow iu the
lower valleys, all the streams open, and the
frost rapidly disappearing from the ploughed
ground. But the weather during the week
has been rather blizzardy, with the tempera
ture disagreeably low, though barely reaching
zero at the coldest. The indications at this
writing are favorable to another "open
■pell," and it is believed that ''the back bone
of winter" is broken, that we will have no
more severely cold weather. There is now
no snow in the main valley of the Yellow
stone, nor has there been any heavy falls
during the winter. The herds, cattle, sheep
and horses, are all thriving on the wild
grasses, work-animals and dairy stock only
being fed from the stack. Coming west in
the winter months over the unprotected
plains of Northern Dakota, world-famed not
withstanding for wheat production, the trav
eler feels as soon as he begins to ascend the
Yellowstone "Valley as if he had been sudden
ly dropped down many degrees southward
into a warmer and more genial clime.
Bozeman, being situated on the western
foot-hills of the range dividing the Bulletin
and Yellowstone valleys, receiving a great
deal more snow than falls in the adjacent
farming districts; but a vitew of the thriving
young city in the latter part of May, (1 have
witnessed the glories of over a dozen spring
openings here) when the buds are bursting
on the multitudinous shade trees, and the
gardens are greening with early vegetation,
would dispel the notion that, the climate must
be forbidding because it is on the 4tJth paral
lel and 4000 feet above sea Mevel. Aud
winter has charms here as well as spring and
summer. The moon is nearing the full, aud
few scenes in nature are more impressively
beautiful than the snow-covered mountains
that encircle Bozeman when lighted up by its
silvery floods of light. The people here know
how to enjoy themselves; the winter mouths
are passed in a continuous round of social
pleasures—balls, skating carnivals, fairs,
etc., aud then there is a well-stocked public,
library, and interesting lectures are frequent
There is no local excitement at all over and
no interest is felt here in reported gold dis
coveries in the Coeur D'Alene country. Our
people assert as of positive knowledge that
there are richer undeveloped gold aud silver
mines in the Upper Yellowstone —in the
Clark's Fork and in Emigrants gulch—and
all around us, than have been discovered in
northern Idaho. The whole Coeur D'Alene
excitement is viewed as a wicked scheme
concreted by town-lot speculators and others
who expect to become enriched through a
rush of emigrants into this country. I
will not say that we have discovered and
tested here mineral wealth warranting such
a rush as is being made for the northern
Idaho ignis fattus; but I will say, without
fear of responsible contradiction, that there
is ten times as much gold and silver known
to be in the Upper Yellowstone mining dis
trict as is known to be in the Coeur D'Alene
country. It is the duty of the public press
to publish the facts, so far as known.
Those large gold nuggets recently exhibit
ed in St. Paul as having come from the
Coeur D'Alene mines—from "the size of a
pigeon egg" up to over $100 in value never
came from that country; and the rich quartz
specimens that are being exhibited at Coeur
D'Alene productions are. from Montana and
California mines. This is the truth. A party
of old miners went from Bozeman into the
"new mining district" early enough last fall
to do some prospecting, when there was no
frost in the ground and no snow to be en
countered, and (though their prospecting was
not thorough), they returned, saying "there
might be two-dollars-a-day diggings there,"
but they doubted it, that Emigrant, and oth
er Upper Yellowstone gold gulches, are in
comparable richer thau "anything discovered
In Northern Idaho. The impression has got
abroad that the Coeur D'Alene country has
only recently been explored for minerals,
that the discovery of gold there is one of the
resulting developments of railroad communi
But no section of the Northern mountain
district has been over-run by gold hunters
longer or more generally. This I will ven
ture to say, will be attested.by old gold min
ers in St. Paul and Minneapolis. The new
camp is located, as a glance at the map will
show, right between the Kovterai diggings,
just behind the International building, and
the old camps of Florence, Warren, Elk and
Piere, famous twenty years ago and long
since worked out. Nineteen years ago, (in
the summer of 1864) the Coeur D'Alene
country was the objective point of one of
the greatest stampedes known to mining his
tory, and it turned out a huge "steambust,"
as the old timers were wont to call mining
humbugs. For several weeks every steamer
reaching Portland from San Francisco was
loaded down to the guards with Californians
rushingto "the Coeur D'Lene country" and
the excited crowd pourd in from all direc
tions. The great bubble collapsed within
ninety days from the time it was inflated.
One of the authors of the excitement was a
man named Wilson, who expected to make
a fortune out of ferries and toll-roads, came
near losing his life by hanging, the infuriated
victims having the rope ready, with noose
fixed; and he was only saved by the earnest
and eloqnent appeal in his behalf of one of
the priests at the Coeur D'Alene mission.
He was set adrift in the wilderness with
the solemn injunction to not show his face
in a stampeders' camp again at the risk of
his life; and of his subsequent fate I know
nothing. These are well authenticated facts
of history in the northern mining camps.
Yet a fair mining camp may be developed in
the Coeur D'Alene mountains; some very
rich districts have thus been found through
groundless excitements; I only say no dis
coveries have yet been made to warrant the
The reported discovery of a quick silver
mine in Emigrant gulch, 30 miles southeast
from Bozeman, is not confirmed. Quick
silver was undoubtedly found; but it may
have come down from placer washings
above; where it had been used to concentrate
gold. But I should not be surprised to hear
of a genuine quicksilver mine being struck
in that gulch of wonderfully varied richness.
We know it contains rich deposits of gold,
silver and copper. One placer claim there
(the Cone ground) has already yielded over
$50,000 In gold, and is not yet fairly opened.
The loss of stock on the Montana ranges
this winter has been inconsiderable, proba
bly will not be, over one per cent. Of course
the stock men are jubilant. Free ranges
and no winter feeding, with good markets at
home and abroad, are sure guarantees of
fortune to our stock men.
Sheep breeding and wool production are in
terests of rising importance, and conflicts
are already threatened between the sheep
and cattle and horse raisers, the sheep, it is
said, utterly destroying the ranges they run
over for cattle and horses. Owners of the
latter claim the grazing grounds by priority
of appropriation, and denounce the sheep
owners, who came in later, as invaders of es
tablished rights; but local legislation is out
of the question, as the subject of dispute is a
matter Ql coDgre86iouft) tcntr?) ssvlusiYtiy,
and how the differences will be adjusted re
mains to be seen. Then the cattle and
horse raisers are threatened with conflicts be
tween themselves, those first established on
a favorite range claiming it to the exclusion
of new comers. But the law governing is
sheep men have as good aright (legal)
on the public domain as cattle men, and it
is for the owner of an incoming herd to de
cide in his own personal interest whether a
range is over-stockerl or not.
Lorenzo Dow once said that "if some
men owned all the world they would want a
little piece of ground outside for a potato
patch," and with generality of mankind this
is human nature. Those contemplating
coming to Montana to embark in the stock
business need not give themselves uneasi
ness about the extent of the ranges. They
are ample enough to subsits ten times the
number of stock that are now scattered over
them. I would suggest to your merchants
who handle iron goods that they would do
well to post themselves in regard to the
mechanical facilities demanded in gold and
silver mining. An immense trade can be
worked up in this line, and your businessmen
should control it. Millions are annually ex
pended in Chicago for mining machinery.
Here we have a miningregion of vast extent,
ouly begining to be developed.
THE LESSON OF LAST YEAR.
What to d/isconraae the Democracy? What
to Encourage Bepublieanism?
The Republican organs have claimed tbat
last year's State election drove back the ad
vancing tide of Democracy and proved the
hopelessness of Democratic success in this
year's Presidential contest. On what does
this assumption rest?
Elections were held in only fourteen States
las year. Eight of these States—Iowa, Massa
chusetts, Minnesota, Nebraska, Pennsylvan
ia, Rhode Island, Michigan and Connecticut
—are claimed by Republicans as certain for
their Presidential candidates. There are
classed as doubtful or debatable—namely,
New York, New Jersey and Ohio. The others
are surely Democratic.
Of the first named eight States, seven were
carried by the Republicans last year by ma
jorities which compare with their Republi
can majorities in 1880 as follows;
Rep. pin- Rep. maj.,
States rality, 1883. 1880
Iowa 25,089 78,082
Massachusetts -9,864 53,245
Minnesota 14.545 40,588
Nebraska 4.510 20,456
Pennsylvania 17,075 37,276
Rhode Island 2,161 7,418
Connecticut 5,603 2,656
Michigan and the three states called doubt
ful were all carried by the Democratic party
last year, and all; except New Jersey were
carried by the Republicans in 1880. The
votes in these states in 1883 and 1880 com
pare as follows:
Dem. maj., Rep. maj.,
New York 16,565 21,033
Ohio 12,629 34,227
Michigan.. 5,046 53,744
New Jersey, which gave a Democratic ma
joritv of 6.809 last vear, gave a Democratic
majority of 2,010 in 1880.
The electoral votes of the northern states
which voted last year, as carried respectively
by the Democrats and the Republicans are as
states voting democratic last tear.
New York 36

The northern states which gave Democrat
ic votes last year, united with the southern
electoral vote, would give the Democratic
candidate a majority of 33 votes in the elec
toral college. With Michigan transferred to
the other side, the Democratic electoral ma
jority would be 20.
What is there in these figures, gathered
from the last election, to discourage the

A SECRET "WELL KEPT.
The Story of a Murder Forty Tears ago Told
for the First Time.
Between forty and fifty years ago an old
log church stood on the South Commons in
Allegheny City, Pa. It was then in the open
country. Adjoining and belonging to the
church was a graveyard, fronting on the pub
About daybreak one morning in 1840 a
farmer who was on his way to Pittsburg with
a load of dressed meat heard sounds issuing
from the graveyard as if some one was
knocking a box to pieces with an axe. He
climbed the fence and stole along in the di
rection of the sounds. He had gone but a
short distance when he found a man engaged
in robbing a grave, He had been so ab
sorbed in his work that he had not heard the
approach of his discoverer, and he was in the
act of lifting the body from the coffin when
he heard the footsteps of the farmer. The
grave was that of a prominent young woman
who had been buried the day before.
The farmer was so filled with horror and
indignation at the crime that before the man
could spring out he seized a club that lay
near, aud dealt the robber a powerful blow
on the head. The man fell into the grave
and neither uttered a sound nor moved after
falling. The farmer became alarmed. Drop
ing into the grave himself, he raised the
man's body. The grave robber was none
other than the sexton of the church, a man
standing high in the community. He was
The farmer hurried back home, and, tell
ing his relatives of what had occurred, he at
once left the state. Only five persons ever
knew the secret of the graveyard tragedy be
sides the living principal: Who found the
body of the sexton dead in the grave was not
positively known by them, but as it was giv
en out by his family, that he died suddenly,
and no investigation was ever made, they
supposed that the body must have been dis
covered by some one of the family before its
position was known to any one else.
The sexton's family soon afterward moved
away. His slayer went to an Ohio town,
where he married and grew into prominence
and wealth. He died last week. His secret
was never divulged, and even his wife and
children lived in ignorance of it. The secret
at the time of his death, was in the keeping
of two persons alone, the other three having
died. One of these persons is a leading
clergyman of Allegheny. The other is the
writer's informant, a resident of the oil re
gions. He says that the death of the princi
pal in the graveyard tragedy.has released
him from all pledge of secrecy. He refuses
to reveal the names, but affirms that the story
is true in every particular.
The Babes Were Spanked.
The latest development of precocious in
iquity comes from Oil City, where a few vig
orous mothers, armed ouly with maternal
rectitude and the corrective shingle, have
broken up a band of adolescent cowboys.
These youngsters held meetings, took the
oath and pledged themselves to poison their
mothers and start on the bloody road of pil
lage and rapine. Unfortunately for the fu
ture chronicler of gore, the aforementioned
shingle fell like a thunderbolt into this camp.
The fiendish captain was spankad into peni
tence iu three minutes, and his gang are
now boohooing on bread and water. These
were Spartan mothers. If we had a few of
them here with their shingles, to deal with
the inquitous purveyors of the infamous lit
erature that crazed these chilbren, society
would be better off.
In Coming Centitries.

terviewing as practised by American news

THE ST. PAUL DAILY GLOBE, MONDAY MORNING, MARCH 17, 1884.
GREAT MEN SPEAK.
To the Readers of the Globe:
The proprietors of the article, to which
attention is directed in this column, firmly
believe that there is nothing unbusiness-like
or unprofessional in giving the widest pub
licity, by means of newspaper advertising
and otherwise, to articles of unquestioned
merit, whether of a medicinal or other nature.
They furthermore believe, that the objection
occasionally urged by some people against
advertised preparations, is born of dis
honesty, rather than of unprejudiced judg
Fully convinced of their article's marvel
ous efficacy, as demonstrated in miUions and
millions of homes in every land and clime,
they unhesitatingly offer it to the public in
every civilized country, as the most wonder
ful preparation of its kind ever discovered;
and they do this by methods which they hold
to be not only bnsiness-like and honorable, but
in every way right and proper. Believing
that a medicine, like a man, is best judged
by its action and endorsements, they present
herewith the unqualified testimonials of men
eminent in public and private life, all over
the world. It must readily appear to every
fair-minded man that neither favor, influ
ence nor money could purchase the unre
stricted approval of the distinguished person
ages whose positive convictions are here given.
Nothing but unexampled merit on the part
of the article in question and & full realiza
tion of the claims advanced in its favor,
could call forth such unanimous and enthusi
astic praise. It is this intrinsic merit that
has caused the term "St. Jacobs Oil" to be
come synonymous with the words: "It Con
quers Pain," in the homes of over one hun
dred and fifty millions of people in the new
world and the old.
The public will please note that the names
given are those of well known, responsible
parties. These are not silent witnesses.
Their statements are positive and unqualifi
ed. They are nineteenth century facts. The
parties whose testimony is given are all alive.

And why recall those bitter hours again?

To the Editor of the Globe:
Small bonnets top-kustted are the rule in
spring millinery and the top-knob is to the
bonnet what Sam Weller's seasoning was
to the pie, "It does it." There is moreover
an evident ascension in these top knots and
ten to one, they no longer incline to the left
side. We often see again, a formal bow of
velvet ribbon placed in front, the ends
brought simply down the sides and ending in
strings. The prominence of velvet ribbon is
indeed a marked feature and all the more
notable as it is the warm season that is
being provided for. Not dark shades and
bright alone appear but delicate pinks, pale
blues and white of different tinges. Brought
forward perhaps with a view to effective con
trasting with the manifold gauzes and crapes
which seem likewise to have a monopoly in
millinery. Ten to one, the new bonnets
show these crapes; for the most part made of
them; often puffed over some handsome
foundation such as gilt for example which
gleams through or again these crapes are so
richly wrought that they glow with a Solo
mon's glory and need no accessories. Forty
five dollars per yard of extremely narrow
width is the price of one of highest type
"andwhen I come to put on edging to match
and finishings, where is my profit?'-' asks
the milliner with melancholy air.
These crapes must not however be imag
ined as always crinkling with the orthodox
crinkle of crape. They may or may not;
many showing ribs across^ others covered
with fancy figures and the only title to the
name crape, being the 6emi-transparency.
Small flowers or of medium size are used in
bunches and set slightly on one side with
feathery pompons, but a gayly decorated
crape scarce needs the addition of a flower
so we more constantly observe wheat ears or
something akin with hovering butterflies or
dragon-flies above. Frail looking these but
extremely lashionable. Straws of course
cannot be dispensed with yet are at present
secondary to these rich little crape creations
and are larger, some very large as to crown
but with wide brim. But fashion runs to
bonnets or hats of material chiefly and it is
customary among those who wear, a separate
bonnet with each dress, often to have a bit of
material to match in the bonnet if not made
entirely of it. So much is the case that a

choose from a variety of geometric figures
and sometimes the two ideas are combined
as for example where grapes are divided into
equal parts contrasting strongly with each
other, Yet more peculiar are logs or forest
branches severed by the woodman's axe and

Heavy Decline in the City's Wheat
Ex-Mayor John Black's Rise From Financial
Election Matters in a Confused Tangle—
General City Xews.
[Special Correspondence of the Globe.]
Milwaukee, March 15.—For some time
past your correspondent has felt like "speak
in' out in meetin'" in regard to the de
cadence of Milwaukee's grain market, but
other matters cropped up andjforced over
this not particularly pleasant subject to a
thoroughbred Milwaukeean. A recent real
estate sale—that of Thos. E. Balding to E.
P. Brockway, of his elegant residence and
grounds on Franklin street, near Knapp
street, fronting on the First ward's triangu
lar park, for a consideration of $16,000 —re-
freshed the subject somewhat, and flavored
it with newness. Mr. Balding, more fami
liarly known as "Tom" among the habitues
of the chamber of commerce, grew up with
the grain commission business in Milwau
kee ; grew important with it, grew rich with it
an d finally grew out with it—to Chicago.
That is were the major portion of the busi
ness has gone, and that is where many old
time Milwaukee speculators are scalping out
their fortunes, or leaving the money they
made here in halcyon days.
Alexander Mitchell erected an elegant
chamber of commerce building just in time
to cage the remnant of a once busy band of
speculators, many of whom out of sheer local
patriotism hang on here and do their busi
ness by wire at Chicago. This picture of the
situation is not drawn in the interest of Chi
cago, or to keep away from local commission
men the patronage that may yet tend hith
erward, but it must be admitted that Chicago
now makes the market and that Milwaukee
dealers are to a certain extent "tailers."
Once in a great while there is quite a differ
ence in figures between the two cities, when
this occurs there is something abnormal
in the market. The case of Mr. Balding is
cited as a representative one, but far heavier
dealers preceded him into the busier mart up
the lake. In real speculative dealing much
depends upon the temper of the crowd, and
a dealer cannot fairly borrow the inspiration
by wire; he must be in the pit amid the noise.
Option dealing here has fallen away fully 50
per cent, and is slow at that. The pit on
'change lacks fire aud enthusiasm.
THE LEGITIMATE GRAIN TRADE.
Although "cash" transactions—the trans
fer of the real article—have increased to a
marked extent of late, the business has
fallen away to a degree that robs Milwaukee
of her old-time title, "The greatest primary
wheat market in the world." A glance at
statistics will reveal the heavy decline in the
trade. The following table gives the receipts
of wheat in the years named:
Year. Bushels. Year. Bushels.
1873 28,457,937 1879 19,048,352
1874 25,028,143 1880 11,750,403
1875 27,878,727 1881 10,170,098
1876 18,174,817 1882 8,058,422
1877 19,814,949 1883 8,907,879
The decline in ten years from an annual
receipt of nearly 28,500,000 bushels to one of
barely 9,000,000 bushels is astonishing.
While Chicago tactics and railroad discrimi
nation have had something to do with it, the
reduction must be ascribed to the rapidly
growing milling interests of the west. The
great mills at Minneapolis and the numerous
flouring institutions of the new northwest are
every year increasing their direct demands
upon neighboring wheat fields, and as a con
sequence the cereal product moves forward in
the shape of flour. This is no mere theory
evolved for temporary comfort, but a hard
fact, based upon the annual receipts of flour
fr<3m the west, which have increased in ratio
almost co-equal with the decline in the annual
influx of wheat.
Your correspondet was somewhat surprised
to see, in last Monday's Globe, an editorial
note correcting a statement in regard to Geo.
Drake's posthumous honor of being the first
Wisconsin soldier, if not the first soldier of
the Union army,to fall in actual engagement
with the enemy in the southern rebellion.
Those early events of the war were so vividly
impressed on the writer's mind, which was
then in the formative state, that reference to
records seemed unnecessary; bnt, since the
attempted correction mentioned, the files of
the Evening Wisconsin for 1862 have been
consulted, to settte the matter satisfactorily.
The battle, or more properly skirmish, of
Falling Waters was fought on the 2d of July,
1862. In a letter written on the day follow
ing the fight, from camp at Huntsville, Va.,
Private Geo. M. Bleyer, who was the war
correspondent of the Evening Wisconsin, wrote
over the signature "Marion" as follows:
"Private George Drake, of Co. A, fell with a
heart-wound, exclaiming as he died,
"oh! my mother,"
Shortly after the first fire Sergeant W. M.
Graham received two wounds while leading
his men forward. With a faint cry he fell,
and as the rebels retreated he was picked up
and carried from the field more dead than
alive." In a private letter, dated the 3d of
July, Col. Starkweather, of the First Wiscon
sin regiment, said: "Young Graham, Co. B.,
was shot in three places, is Btill alive, and
may recover. Young Drake, Co. A., was
instantly killed. Geo. Drake's body was
buried at Williamsport, Pa., where it now
reslp. Warren M. Graham lingered until
the 26th of August, when he died of blood
poisoning from his terrible wounds. His re
mains were brought to Milwaukee and in
terred at Forest Home cemetery. The par
ents of both of these young heroes still re
side in Milwaukee, the Drakes keeping a
large boarding house on Wisconsin street
called the "Drake house," where a fine oil
painting of Wisconsin's first sacrifice may be
seen hanging in one of the parlors.
EX-MAYOB JOHN BLACH.
Ex-Mayor John Black, whose name has
been bandied about of late in connection
with the mayoralty, but who peremptorily
declines to make another run for an office
which was not at all conducive to happiness
while he held it, has returned from Wash
ington whither he went some time ago to
work in the interest of the bonded whisky
bill. He is disappointed with his work at the
national capital, as the house, on Saturday
last,refused to take up the bill for considertion.
Mr. Black's interest in whisky is as natural as
that of a fly in a lump of sugar, with the dif
ference that appetite is not back of it. Mr.
Black takes to whisky because of the
money there is in the handling oi it. He
was a poor man when he first commenced its
sale and his first transactions in the fluid
were in two-finger quantities over a coun
AWAY BACK IN THE '60'S
Mr. Black kept a saloon on the corner of
Huron street and Broadway, dispensing the
stimulant from a row of varnished barrels,
numbered as to grade, arranged on a shelf
behind the bar. At that time he lived in
frugal style overthe saloon. From the retail
business he branched out into dealings in
large lots and finally developed into a whole
saler and got rich rapidly. As his wealth in
creased he changed his household quarters,
moving first into the frame building on
Michigan street, back of the Friend block,
now occupied by Robert Elliott as a grain
commission office, then to a plain but sub
stantial new frame house on Wisconsin
street, between Van Buren and Cass streets,
and next into the elegant residence which he
now occupies, on the corner of Division and
Milwaukee streets, representing capital to
the amount of over $60,000. During the
famous whiskey ring trials, a good many eyes
were turned toward Black, who it was thought
might be involved in the whirlpool of crook
edness, but the finger of the law was never
placed upon him. If he had a hand in the
intrigue for spoils at that time he was adroit
about it. Some time ago he retired from
active business and now occupies an office
in the Pfister block, on the corner of Broad
way and Wisconsin streets, with the simple
"JOHN BLACK'S OFFICE,"
on the door. Here, presumably, he cuts off
his coupons and keeps his rent and real es
tate accounts. It is currently reported that
he is just now deeply interested in whisky,
which may account for his labor for the
bonded extension bill. Mr. Black no doubt
has political aspirations, but he is aiming
higher than the mayoralty. As has been
heretofore hinted, the congressional nomina
tion would be more to his liking. Black has
a host of friends in both political parties,
and is generally put down as a good fellow
The charter election is only seventeen
days distant, but both political parties are in
a profound quandary over the mayoralty.
The names of John A. Hinsey, John L.
Mitchell and Samuel Dixon are mentioned
by the Democrats, with a strong leading for
Mitchell, although Dixon has the prestige of
experience in municipal government and
is now president of the board of aldermen.
The Republicans are talking of ex-Mayor
Thos. H. Brown. A movement to place
Mayor Stowell in the field for re-election on
a citizens' ticket has developed, and it is be
lieved Stowell will run if an issue is made
on the license question. He is for high li
cense and stringent regulations of saloons.
There are numerous candidates for the other
offices to be filled. The Democrats lean to
ward Julius Meiswinckle for comptroller,
Wm. Maywurm for treasurer and P. J. Som
ers for city attorney. Win Newell and Lem
Ellsworth are Republican aspirants for the
comptrollership, Geo. Paschen for the office
of treasurer, and J. R. Brigham for city at
torney. The proposed citizens' ticket is as
follows: Mayor,John M. Stowell;comptroller,
Henry Smith; treasurer, A. B. Geilfuss; city
attorney, either J. G. Flanders, E. G. Corn
stock or Fred Johnson.

Mayor Phillips, is about to commence another

well known carriage manufacturer. She
Charles Dunlop, son of the under-sheriff of
Milwaukee county, was married on Wednes
day evening to Miss Minnie Collins, at the
residence of the bride's grandfather, C
Latham Sholes, on Racine street.
The trouble in the Dennett Harvesting
Machine company has been grossly magnified
by certain reporters, much to Mr. Dennett's
injury. The talk of a defalcation of $100,000
is mere bosh. The works were not paying
dividends, and opposition to Dennett devel
oped to such an extent that he was deposed.

new management, but no startling develop
