The Opera House.
There are no public buildings which in this
day and age of the world contributes so much
to make a city popular, and act as a sort of
standing advertisment of it, as its hotels and
opera houses. People desire first of all to be
well fed and well housed and next to that
To a very considerable portion of each of
the different classes of people who go to
make up a community, the establishment of
a fine, commodious place of amusement is an
event which they hail with delight. People
freim abroad visiting a city like Mankato or
conversing about it always express satisfac
tion when "informed of the fact that the city
has a fine Opera house.
It becomes a sort of standing advertise
ment for a place when supplied with a neat
commodious structure of this character. Until
very recently all first-class operatic or dra
matic parties only visited-St. Paul and Min
neapolis. Since the erection of the Opera
house at Stillwater that city has been in
cluded within the circuit and all that is ne
cessary to have Mankato become a fixed point
of attraction to the more desirable class of
companies is to have a first-class opera house.
Such an one the opera house company pro
pose to furnish, seated and fitted up in an
elegant manner, and in point of fact far
ahead of the degree of excellence which is
justifiable were the investment expected to
yield an immediate return. This the gentle
men do not expect it will do, and for this
reason they have asked the citizens of Man
kato to subscribe local aid.
That the benefit to be derived from the es
tablishment and completion of such a place
of amusement as their plans call for would
be a big thing for the city, no one can doubt
for a moment, aud to this end it is very de
sirable that the naeded assistance and en
couragement should be furnished. Now is
the time to assist them and we shall have
one of the finest theaters in the west as the
result of private and public enterprise and
The most absorbing question which is like
ly to confront the city this season, and
which even now causes no little trepidation
upon the part of new coiners is, "Where
shall we live?" Notwithstanding the fact
that considerable building was done at Man
kato last year almost every available spot is
occupied, aud those who are not Situated so
as to be able to build must depend upon
some one else.
The Mankato Building and Loan associa
tion while in a measure ready to meet this
new and rapidly increasing need for homes
are not able to so fully respond to the re
quirements of the situation as the crisis de
These people must have homes, and as a
rule they are not prepared to build themselves.
What Mankato most needs at present is the
erection of a hundred or two cottages, which
can be rented at from ten to twenty dollars
per mouth. Buildings of this description
can be erected for from six to fifteen hundred
dollars, and as residence property is not at
exhorbitant figures, locations can be easily
The matter of providing houses for hun
dreds of families who will seek to make their
residence here within the next few months
must be met by the business men of Man
kato, and if they properly understand the
demand which is being made upon them
there is no question but that they will
respond. No more remunerative investment
could be imagiued in a city where building
material is so cheap as it is here, and where
the demand for residences of the character
named is so great, than in the erection of
cottages for rent.
That this demand will be met by the
efforts of individuals, by the enlargement of
the capital of the building association and
the formation of others there is no room for
doubt. The fame of Mankato, which rests on
no visionary basis, but upon the most substan
tial and material business operations, is be
coming noised abroad, and it takes no pro
phetic, vision to see an influx of people this
coming season such as the fondest dream of
the early city fathers never dreamed of.
The establishment of so many extensive
manufacturing institutions as are now being
inaugurated,necessitates the inxux of a much
larger population than the city formerly con
tained in the person of operators alone, to
say nothing of the large class of people who
always fiock to a flourishing city, ready to
engage in any business that may offer.
Let the word go out that we are ready to
meet all legitimate demands made upon us.
The time has fully come when 'there should
not be one dollar of idle capital in Mankato,
and those who have money can rest assured
that now is the best time in their lives to in

April 5, 1884, at 1 o'clock p. m., an article on
practical farming operations:
J. F. French,
"Win (lora Reporter: We are requested to ask
all farmers who have any interest in this
movemeut to cut out the above call, paste it
to a piece of white paper and circulate
among their neighbors. Besides those who
have promised to read papers, we understand
one or two others will be prepared to talk.
From what we are advised of the effort, it is
proposed to make a permanent organization
for the monthly discussion of practical mat
ters pertaining to the farm, and hold meet
ings in various parts of the county, so that
all the farmers may have an opportunity of
attending some of the sessions. There is
little doubt that organizations of this charac
ter are of great importance to the farmers,
who may each learn something practical from
his neighbor. It will take a little time—a day
now and then—but the results will fully re
pay the trouble. The farmers need more ac
quaintance with each other, more sociability,
more practical suggestions as to how to get
the best results from their labor, and all
these will come from these meetings.

Austin Register: Mr. Mathew Gregscn, who
has just returned from a trip to New Eng
land and New Brunswick, looking up the
business of starch manufacturing, has con
cluded to start a starch factory, provided the
farmers will encourage the industry by rais
ing potatoes at twenty cents per bushel.
Mr. Gregson wants to make contracts with
farmers for potatoes, big and little ones, to
be delivered from the field at above sum per
bushel. He calculates to use about
150,000 bushels. His factory will
be located at his Ramsey
mill, where he has plenty of power and water.
We hope to see this new industry encourag
ed and that it may be profitable to all con
cerned. This will be the first starch factory
in the state and we hope may be the initial
step to further industries. Austin with her
creamery, canning factory and starch factory
will be pretty well along the road to the
manufacturing of home products.

Young men ambitious and heart loose may
sec an opportunity in this statement by the
Mandan Pioneer: In a running conversation
with the great Sioux chief at the Inter Ocean
on Wednesday night, he was asked this ques
tion : "As you now look upon the white man,
would you allow a promising young white
man to marry one of your daughters?" Sit
ting Bull answered promptly: "If I saw that
he loved her better than all others, and was
satisfied that he would take good care of her
and would pay well for her, I would."
Gen. Bates, of the Manitoba freight depart
ment, objects to the statement recently
made by farmer Kea that 40 cents a bushel
was charged on the shipment of seed wheat
from Fargo to Hope. He states that the highest
rate ever charged was 21}^ cents per bushel
and at present it is shipped at 10}£ cents
per bushel in car lots. There is quite a gap
between these figures and those of Mr. Rea,
who evidently labored under a misapprehen
sion. The 40 cent rate was published in
some of the Fargo and Moorhead papers.
The Port Emma Times has this: Various
reports are in circulation about the default
ing postmaster Finch, the last being that he
is about to turn state's evidence, thereby im
plicating several of Ellendale's citizens. It
is said that when his trunk was opened in
Ellendale four hundred letters were found
that had been opened by him. They offer to
reduce his sentence to thirty days if he will
turn state's evidence. The more we learn of
this case the more we believe that he
should be sentenced for thirty years instead
of thirty days.
In supporting the movement for the con
struction of the Helena and Bent on. railroad
the Helena Herald says: Developments on
the Frohner mine show mineral body of vast
proportions, and the product from this source
alone would probably load a train every day
in the year. The Drum Lummon is perhaps
the greatest gold and silver bonanza yet dis
covered in Montana, and with the Gloster
and other great properties of the Silver creek
region would supply an immense traffic be
tween Helena and the communities
solidly planted about those mines.
The Sargent Item says: Several of our ter
ritorial exchanges are urging the name of
Col. P. Donan for our next executive. He is
honest, competent and a loyal Dakotian; con
sequently, in these times of political intrigue,
his chance9 are not excellent. However, the
Item votes for Pat, provided he is a candi
date. There is a good deal of regret felt in
Dakota among the friends of the colonel at
the information that he has accepted the
position of managing editor of the Beening
Critic, a daily paper at Washingtan, as it will
take him away from the territory, but they
have assurance of a powerful representative
of their interests at Washington.
The Brule Index gives this statement of the
profit of growing cattle in Dakota: O. Tur
geon, who lately shipped thirty-five head of
cattle from Kimball to the Chicago market,
returned from the east Wednesday night and
expresses himself as well satisfied with the re
sults of his sale. He received #6 per 100
pounds for the lot, which brought him the
snug sum of $2,656.25, making an average
of $76.75 per head. Tiie cattle Mr. Turgeon
siiipped were raised and fattened simply
upon Dakota grass and hay, never having
been "stall-fed," which speaks volumes in
praise of the nutritive and fattening qualities
of our grasses, and also furnishes a good ar
gument in favor-of Dakota's merits jjs a
It is one of the peculiarities of the local
and political situation in Fargo that the two
Republican papers have so far bridged the
chasm between them as to both support Col.
Morton, the leading Democrat of the city,for
mayor, while the Democratic paper and the
guerrilla sheets are bitterly opposing. The
Itroadaxe aims to take charge or the politics
of the city and slashes around astutely with
no apparent aim other than to individualize
itseli and make things lively. It would not
be easy to select a man who would wield
the municipal baton with more vigor and at
the same time sit down harder upon visiona
ry schemes than Colonel Morton. He com
bines prudence and economy with public
spirit and will no di ubt do more for tiie
good of the city than almost any one that
couid be selected.
The Hope Pioneer says: The Mayville
brunch of the Manitoba railroad is practically
useless during the greater part of the winter,
there being almost one continual Hue of
snow-banka along its entire length. As
Portland and Mayville are but two miles
apart, the railroad company manages to rim
a train to the former pjace, ami wait on May
ville by stage? coach, and the two towns com
bined being able to furnish a little more bus
[ess n for the road, the rolling stock naturally
rolls in that direction for the present. It is
not Ju>i tin-' wa.v tora railroad to do business.
Our merchants have supplies on the road
which are needed, aud, taken all together,
the Manitoba company 6hould man
age in some way to give
us a train. The plea that snow in tho cuts
below Page causes a blockade, is too gauzy.
All that is necessary is a little investigation
on the part of Mr. Manvel.
Father Stephan, who has lived among the
Indians many years, and is specially known
as the spiritual guide of Col. Donan, is de
livering a series of lectures upon the Ameri
can red man, to large audiences at James
town. In the first lecture he referred to Sit
ting Bull and the Custer massacre, with that
old chief's version of the unfortunate affair.
Ills statement, according to the Alert, was
this: Sitting Bull went to Gen. Custer and
asked permission to go on a hunt with his
braves. The general readily consented. The
Indians were encamped in a gulch when
scouts brought in the information that Cus
ter's command was advancing for the pur
pose of battle. Sitting Bull was loth to light
and stationed his braves iu the gulch, with
instructions not to fight until they were fired
upon by the whites. The whites commenced
the battle which ended in such a sad result,
and which the Indians fought in self de
fence. They were goaded to relentless en
mity to the whites by years of abuse which
no race of men could submit to without sac
rificing all independence and manhood.
Hardly any questions stir up so much
local feeling as the location of county seats,
which statement is by no means confined to
Dakota, but there are many couuty seats to
be located fn the territory, and rarely is one
fixed without a contest. Traill county has
been in a squabble over this question for
several years. Caledonia has been the coun
ty seat, but at the last legislature a special
act was passed relocating it, and providing
that the town that received two-thirds of the
vote should be the county seat. There was a
real hard fightbetween the east and west end
and some magnificent voting done. The
west end pulled 2,300 votes out of about
that population and a clear two-thirds vote,
as alleged. It is stated that a high board
fence was erected about the polling booth at
Portland and Mayville to prevent the east
end men from seeing how the voting was
done. The canvassing board refused to al
low the returns and the case is to come be
fore the court at Fargo on the 18th. It is
said that nearly 500 witnesses will appear
and a good deal of time be taken up with it.
The Fargo Contempt Case.
To the Editor of the Globe:
Fargo, D. T., March 10, 1884.—I have
noticed several items, either in the Globe
or copied from it, going the rounds of the
press, relating to the case of Wm. H. H.
Matteson, editor of the Fargo Daily Sun, be
ing ordered before Judge Hudson for con
tempt of court, etc. All of said items are un
doubtedly intended to give an unfavorable
coloring to the actual facts. The articles
published in the Sun containing the alleged
contempt, did not refer to Judge Hudson or
any proceeding of his court in anyway what
ever, but did charge the district attorney and
sheriff of belonging to a ring and exercising
their official favor to further the aims of that
ring. The contempt case has not "become
serious on account of the course pursued by
the defendant's attorneys," as stated by the
Globe. All there is to it is, Matteson pro
poses to test the question whether a newspa
per has a right to criticise the official acts of
county officers, outside of the court room,
without being liable for contempt or not.
He regards it as a matter in which every
newspaper in the land is interested and one
which involves very Important issues with
the press at large, otherwise the whole mat
ter would have been settled within an hour
after his appearance before the court. Very

A DIAMOND QUARTETTE.
Arrest of a Hack Load Accused of Robbing
a Visitor of Bob Diamond's Place.
Last evening a party drove up to the po
lice headquarters on the East side and ex
plained that a robbery had been committed
at Bob Diamond's halfway house, and ex
plained furthermore that the guilty parties
were then approaching the city in a hack.
Lieut. Bosworth sallied forth and captured
the hack in question on Central avenue. In
side were two men and two women, bearing
every indication of lewd habits. The quartette
was placed under arrest and searched. One
of the prisoners was found to have $140 in
$20 bills secreted in the heel of his overshoe.
His comrade had two $5 and two $1 bills,
making a total of $152. In the hack was
found a $5 bill which one of the women
claimed belonged to her. She said 8he had
handed it to one of the men to liquidate the
hack bill, but the hackman knocked the
window out of that story by saying the
hack hire had been paid before he took
them out. One of the women was found to
have money, but the other had nothing. The
entire sum is now in the possession of Lieut.
Bosworth, who is of the opinion that the
money taken from the woman actually be
longs to her. As a matter of course the pris
oners protest against their incarceration, al
leging their innocence. The man who was
i lobbed g&ys tbat tbvie was bet/ueep. $150 and
$175 taken from him, and that a major por
tion of the sum was in $20 bills.
The latter statement is corroborated by the
fact that $140 of the amount recovered is in
bills of that denomination. The man who
was the victim of thh robbery was a stranger
to the police and did not give any name. He
was shown the prisoners and positively iden
tified them as the euilty parties. The matter
will be taken before Judge Bailey to-day, and
it seems certain the authorities have a straight

The proceedings of last evening's meeting
of the Irish National League were of an in
teresting and instructive character. After
the transaction of routine business Attorney
Canty discoursedon the laws governing delib
erative assemblies. Mr. Bramble gave a fine
vocal rendition of "The Harp That Once
Through Tara's Halls," and received an
encore, to which he responded by sing
ing "Kathleen Mavourneen." The Hon. Ed.
McDermott gave an interesting account of
his recent trip through the east, during which
he attended meetings of the National League
in New York, Brooklyn and Philadelphia,
and conversed with several of the leading
Nationalists in those cities. P. H. Gibbons,
after repeated calls, favored the audience
with one of his elocutionary productions.

fails to elicit vehement applause from the

At 12:20 yesterday, First street north near
the Wilbur house, was the scene of a terrible
encounter between two white bulldogs, one
of which belongs to the stableman at the
above hotel. About 200 persons congregated
to witness the light and the canines were
tearin? each other in bulldog fashion, when
the the contest was brought to an
abrupt termination by Lieut. Daly
who grasped one of the animals by its caudal
appendage and with a muscular pull sepa
rated the combatants. During the excite
ment smoke was seen to is.-iu'? from the base
ment of the Market hall building, and an
excited individual rushed to box 12 and
gave- the alarm which brought out the fire
department It was discovered that the
smoke was coming from a lire kindled in the
basement for the purpose of thawing out the
water pipes. Chief stet>mi gave vent to an
ebullition of bad temper on account of the
unnecessary alarm, but he should blame
those for furnishing keys to excitable indi
viduals who will not wait to investigate, but
jump to the conclusion that where there is
smoke there is fire.
