Geo. A. Pillsbury, at the Republican con
vention —"I accept the nomination as a Re
publican; I would not accept it under any
other circumstances." At the balloting con-
venrton he said: "I accept your nomina
tion, gentlemen, as coming from a class of
citizens who have the interests of the city at
heart." "I tell you, you shall have my best
service." In other words, George A. Pills
bury is only too anxious to accept
anything which happens to ba lying around
loose. To Jas. T. Wyman he wrote he would
not be a candidate under any circumstances,
if Wyman, was a candidate. A. T. Anken
ny, in Pillsbury's presence, at the bolting
mass meeting said, if Pillsbury is elected he
will not be elected as a Republican; "in ac
cepting the endorsement of this convention
he is a Democrat, whom all Democrats can
support," and Pillsbury listened and smiled
in silent acquiscence.
TnE Tallow Dip bestows unlimited adula
tion upon the recreant Democrats who, to
gratify their spleen, went completely over to
the enemy. They are political renegades for
for whom the Republicans entertain the most
profound contempt, knowing full well that
the motives which actuated them to secede
from their own party were not inspired by a
pure love of reform in the municipal admin
istration. There are many good men among
them who did not understand the nature of
the movement, but the blatant "reformers"
who iind fault with the city government
should have first reformed their own habits,
aud then the people would believe more in
J. G. Bowditch is one of the bolters. He
played a bold game to get into the city con
vention. Charles Corneman, a staunch
Democrat, pronouncedly in favor of Ames,
had been duly elected a delegate from tbe
Fourth ward, but, unfortunately, could not
attend on account of bis being one of the
judges of election. Bwwditch suc
ceeded in getting on the delegation
as his proxy, only to turn
traitor to the trust imposed in him. If such
a faithless trickster can benefit them the Re
publicans are welcome to the acquisition.
The Democrats will never miss him.
The committee on credentials at the bolt
ing convention took unwarrantable liberty
with the names of sterling Democrats whose
names appear among the delegates. The
committee was empowered to till vacancies,
and they did fill them to the utter dissatis
faction and indignation ot men who would
not, under any consideration, permit their
names to be used. Mr. John Lally, on ar
riving at Harrison hall, learned that his name
had been used, and he peremptorily ordered
it stricken off. The Globe records this fact
in justice to Mr. Lally, who is an uncom
Tribune, March 18: It is understood in well
informed quarters that the present wide open
mayor of Minneapolis, on a salary of a few hun
dred a year, has by strict economy, and regular
habits, managed to save not less than fifteen
thousand dollars a year. Such an example of
thrift is worth everything to the rising genera
The editor of the Tribune is a liar by the
watch, and besides being a hypocrite is a
cowardly knave. A. A. Ames.
It is just such vile lies which the pious
fraud and hypocrite, Deacon Nettleton, is
peddling, which will aid the election of
Mayor Ames the first day of next month.
Two weeks ago the Journal made its fight
against Mayor Ames upon the especial
ground that he was supported by the saloon
keepers, and had much to say respecting the
big oampaign fund which the saloonkeepers
would raise for Ames, and denounced them
as the dangerous element of the city. Now
it turns about because a certain saloonkeeper
openly declared himself for Pillsbury, and
with wide extended arms welcomes the
saloonkeepers to the Republican manger.
Those ultra Republicans who boast of their
long line of Repnblican ancestry, must feel
a little peculiar when they think that Geo. A.
Pillsbury, prior to coming to Minneapolis
was a Democrat. In this connection it may
be said it is the opinion of most people that
he would be a Democrat to the present day
had he not taken up his abode in an over
whelmingly Republican ward. It is an ins
tance of easy politics. Of course hypocrisy
does not figure in the case.
Mayor Ames in his speech accepting the
unanimous nomination of the Democratic
city convention, said he would, if elected,
control the evils which exist in the city, and
which the immaculate (!) people of the offlc
ions Journal, the falsifying P. P. and the
traitorous Tribune, devote so much time and
space in advertising to the world, so that they
cannot possibly do the city any harm.
Alt>. Cooley and Aid. Cole cast their
maiden votes in the city council last night
in favor of paying that old bill presented re
peatedly by Comptroller Hill for alleged ad
ditional services. This bill has been rejected
as illegal by the city council as often as it has
come up. It is certainly not a very good be
ginning for tbe new alderman to make.
The city council wrestled energetically

Geo. A. Pielsbcry sent $10,000 from the

How many of the best patrons of those
houses which the Journal says must close if
Pillsbury is elected are Pillsbury henchmen.

him from work and necessitated an outlay of
large sums of money. He clarges the rail
road company with negligence in baeking up
the cars at the Cedar avenue crossing with

THE MOTOR LINE.
The City Council Discuss the Matter of Ex
lending the Time for Prohibiting Steam—
The New Aldermen Seated — Miscellaneous
The regular meeting of the city council
was held last night with a light attendance.
President Pillsbury occupied the chair.
The city comptroller notified the council
by means of a written communication that
his term of office would expire April 7th, and
with it his membership of the board of sink
in s fund commissioners. The communica
tion also stated that there had been no meet
ing of the board for two years, nor such an
examination of the books and counting of
the securities as contemplated by section 5
of the ordinance creating said board in view
of his retirement therefrom, and asking that
an examination be made on the afternoon of
The rcommendation was adopted.
THE NEW ALDERMEN.
The canvassing board reported the election
of Emerson Cole as alderman of the Fourth
ward, and Geo. W Cooley as alderman of
the Eiirhth ward, and upon motion they took
the regular oath of office and were seated.
President Pillsbury announced that Aid.
Cooley should take the place of Aid. Chan
nell, resigned, upon the following standing
committees: Licenses, fire department,
printing, police, workhouse, and supervisors
of the poor, and made Aid. Cleveland chair
man of the committee on workhouse.
Aid. Cole was placed upon the following
committees, in place of Aid. Greenleaf, re
signed: Ways and means, bonds of city
officers, streets, grades and additions, fire de
pertinent, printing, ordinances, supervisors
of the poor.
THE COMPTROLLER'S BILL AGAIN.'
Aid. Morse moved that the old claim of
Comptroller Hill for alleged extra clerk hire
in the sum of $195, be paid. It is the old bill
which had been repeatedly voted down by the
Aid. Waitt took the floor to oppose the
motion. There was only a meagre attend
ance of the council, and it was unfair to
bring it up. The matter had been thoroughly
investigated and the bill rejected.
Aid. Walsh could only look upon the
measure in the light of a back salary grab.
The council had decided that
the comptroller was not entitled to the
money. He should oppose paying the bill.
If, as Aid. Morse claims, Mr. Hill has been
an efficient and hard working officer Aid.
Walsh should rather favor giving him a do
nation upon his retiring from office.
Aid. Andrews favored the payment of the
Aid. Hashow rose to a point of order. The
bill had been voted down and could not be
taken up until the previous action be recon
Aid. Waitt wished to state to tbe council
that the action of the comptroller in refus
ing to sign the warrants for paying
the salaries of the alderman did not influence
him in the slightest in his opposition. He
did not believe the bill just. The city clerk
had also employed extra assistance, but he
had paid for such assistance himself, and
not called upon the city for a cent for the
same. The work of all city officers increases
as the city grows larger, but the ordinance
fixes the salary and the council has no power
to change it.
A vote was taken and the two new alder
men went on record in favor of paying the
bill, but it failed to carry.
Aid. Haugan moved that the motor ordi
nance be placed upon its second reading.
The ordinance extends the time for the use
of steam on First street and First avenue
south, from April 1 to July 1, 1884. The
Aid. Walsh could only express regret that
the question should come up so often. The
matter of unfavorable weather interfering
with the work of making the change was
contemplated at the time the ordinance was
last amended. He knew it was a great con
venience to those who live out on the line,
but he did not think it a hardship to stop the
motor at Sixth street. It does not mean to
do away with the motor altogether. The con
tract has been let for paving First street, and
if the motor runs there it will practically sur
render the street to the Motor company to
the detriment of the property owners. The
property owners have rights which this coun
cil is bound to respect. Running down to
the market increases the revenue of the com
pany, and that is about the only argument
in favor of it.
G. W. Braekett as a property owner was
given permission to speak. The property
owners were willing to move the tracks
on April 1 for nothing.
He had waited patiently for a long time for
the abolition of the line. He was making
arrangements for puttiDg up buildings, and
he had leased buildings upon the promise
that no further extension of time would be
asked nor granted. If cutting the motor
off at Sixth street, was a greater hardship to
(.'ol. McCrory then to himself the speaker
would waive all rights. If the paving tax could
be delayed he would say nothing and let the
Aid. Hashow moved to amend section one,
by striking out the last clause. The effect
would be to grant the line privilege to run,
but would prohibit steam between Sixth
street and Bridge square.
Col. McCrory said no one bad presented
the facts as they exist. He was sorry that there
was no one to speak for the poor people, but
the wealthy people were ready to speak them
selves. In 1878, he had been requested to
build the line, but hesitated a whole year.
He was not anxious to build it, but June 2S,
the following year,he buiit aud begun operat
the road. The history of the matter was re
viewed by the speaker.
A number of other speeches followed.
LEAVING IT TO THE PEOPLE.
Aid. Andrews believed in lcavingthe ques
tion to the people to settle. He was of the
opinion that the road had increased the val
uation of the city property more than had an y
other institution in the city.
Aid. Waitt said all questions of public
importance may be canvassed in politics.
The citizens of certain wards have the right
to demand of their candidate the position of
of the candidates upon all questions of im
portance to the ward. He believed Mr.
Braekett was in the council to represent to a
certain extent the Manitoba Railway com
pany which also carries passengers to Lake
Minnetonka. The Street Railway company
have reasons for opposing ttie motor line.
The claim of those opposing the liue have
made gross exaggerations.
Mr. Braekett grew very indignant and
said Aid. Waitt said that which was false and
that it was ungentlemanly to say it.
A long debate followed and the question of
referring the matter to the committee on
railroads to report at the next meeting was
THE MILLING INDUSTRY.
Resume ofthe Past Week's Business Among
the Flouring Mills.
It would seem that the point has at last
been reached from which the flour produc
tion of Minneapolis would commence to in
crease , and grow into proportions somewhat
like its former self. The past ten days have
been characterized by decidedly "springy"
weather, snow and ice being to a consider
able extent transformed to water, and the
beneficial effect on the river, while not
marked thus far, is thought to have been
quite appreciable, and to forecast as to what
may be expected very soon. With these
favorable signs, strong hopes are
entertained that before another week there
will be a good head of water. Last week's
production showed a coesiderable increase,
and there is very good reason for believing
that the output this week will be still larger.
The flour production last week (ending
March 15) was swelled to 72,322 bbls.—12,
054 daily—against 68,300 bbls. the preceding
week. This is the largest amount of flour
made since the first week in December last,
when the water power had not reached so
low an ebb. The flour trade is quiet, the de
mand having been somewhat checked by
the unsettled condition of wheat, but mill-
ers hold their flour quite firmly. At
this date last year, the milling business was
depressed and unsatisfactory, many of the
mills being shut down or running lightly.
The following shows the output for four
weeks in 1883, ending on the dates given:
March 17, 11.000 bbls. ; March 24, 10,000
bbls. ; March 31, 9,000 bbls.; April 6, 6,

There is probably an error in tbis state

An editor who knows all about such things

The first church bell that ever summoned

at Devil's Lake City, the past week from the

be susceptible of modification if there were

The Avanl Courier sees a brii/ht future
for that part of Montana. It says:
"We predict that this will prove a year of

than in any preceding year. A large num
ber of those rushing after the Cceur d'Alene

part of the* country—the best farming and
the best mining region on the Northern Pa
cific. Avaunt! ye croakers; go to Cceur
d'Alene, or some other region of hope and
imagination. You are as much out of place
in this land of promise as a hearse would be

The Hand County Press states this point,
which is an important consideration in sup
port of state organization for both south and
north Dakota: Dakota will have one of the
richest school funds of any state in the Union,
from the sale of her school lands. It is not
surprising that all friends of public schools
are in favor of state statehood. This would
not only greatly lessen the heavy school tax
now borne, but would at the same time in
crease the fund for school purposes. The
sixteenth and the thirty-sixth sections
throughout the Territory, which constitute
the school lands, cannot be used until after
the territory becomes a state. The people
of Chamberlain fear that the Sioux reserva
tion will not be opened.
Information has been received, it is said
at Devil's Lake City that a Minnesota con
tractor is figuring on the contract for 100
cottages on the north shore of the lake, for
the use of people from eastern cities who
propose to spend summers there. The Inter
Ocean says: The north and northeast shores
of Devils Lake have very attractive features
for those who can afford the luxury of a sum
mer by the sea. The magnificent advantages
of the lake for bathing and boating, and the
great abundance of game in this region make
it a double inducement for the cooped-up
denizens of the great cities to come here
with their families, for while the ladies and
children are swing in their hammocks or
bathing and boating, the head of the house
hold may exercise his ambition and expert
ness as a Nimrod, and in the fall the whole
family will go home "brown as a berry," their
physical systems filled with nature's tonics.
The Lisbon Sunday Xem has this report of
an attempt to utilize the wind on the prairie
for navigation: "C. J. Nelson owns the
only sail sleigh we have heard of iu the ter
ritory. Monday Messrs. Nelson and T. Olutn
left our city with the intention of going to
Fargo, but they perceived in a short time
after starting that it was useless trying to
reach that place, as the wind was not favora
ble, so they headed for Tower City. That
place they failed to reach, as the wind was
not the most favorable even to go tliat way.
They reached Mr. Lytle's house, about twen
ty-lour miles from here, and there remained
over night. A fearful blizzard howled all
day Tu sday, with favorable winds for their
returning, so they started out and struck the
railroad track about Buttzville, where they
remained over. They finally turned up here
Wednesday, well pleased with their ride, but
expressed their determination to make the
trip to Fargo before the snow leaves."
Among the objections raised by the Tank
ton Pre**, to the bill prepared by the United
States grand jury at Fargo, to lease school
lands, are these: The bill is presented, just
when a division of Dakota is agitated and
very much desired by the people of the south
ern half. The latter do not desire their
school lands to be impoverished aud worn
out, if the northerners do ask for it. We do
not want such a measure forced upon us.
We have come here to stay, aud we have a
country that we intend to live in, while we
live at all. If our part of the territory was
undesirable as a permanent home, we might
then be anxious to plow up all the school
sections, get rich fast and leave them ex
hausted and abaudoned to the wee.Is after
a few years, to retire to some more pleasant
climate to enjoy the proceeds.
But we have lived in hopes that when Dakota
becomes a state, there will be au immense
school fund, derived from the sale or lease,
under state officers, of the eighteenth part of
our whole area, which is now held in reserve
for us by the government. We art; willing to
forearo the present advantage of the use of
these lands, that the coming generations may
have schools, institutes, libraries and normal
schools without taxation, as a result of our
The department of justice has ordered the
prosecution of all trespassers on school lands.
North Dakota has niang of these lawless peo
ple, and a large number of its citizens are
now under complaint and indictment for
persistently farming the school lands. The
bill seems a desperate attempt at legislating
themselves out of the position of defendants
in criminal suits.
One Johnny Baker, in Hand county, is in
trouble by imitating the example of the
patriarch Jacob too closely in trying to marry
a whole family. Last May he came to Hand
county aud tiled on a claim in the name of
John .Baker, when his name in the states
had always beeu Obed Bowden. He had a
buxom young alleged wife with him, who has
since had a daughter. The Ree Valley Press
has this narration in regard to the matter
and persons: "Thursday evening a lady
with a small child arrived here, and give the
first intimation of crookedness. She comes
from Waukegun, 111., gives her name as
Bowden, and claims our John Bowden as
her husband. He left her at Waukegan,
with three small children and $50 in money:
taking over $1,300 of money they had earned
together, to carry .out bis villainous plans.
At Milwaukee, Wis., he was married to his
second wife, she being in full knowledge of
the whole circumstance. Together they
eame west, assumed the name of Baker and
thought themselves beyond the reach of the
deserted wife. But a few months ago he con
cocked a plan to secure some cash by re
turning, and went east. At Milwaukee the
police detected the disguise and arrested the
geutlemau. To obtain his release be told
of his residence here, giving the section
upon which be lived, and of his assumed
name and wife in Illinois claiming to be on his
way to see her, but saying nothing iu regard
to the second marriage. These facts came
to the ears of au acquaintance, who gave
them to wife number one. At once letters
of inquiry were sent here, and as soon as
they became satisfied that there was no dis
count in the affair, the poor broken hearted
woman and younuest child were furnished
money and started on the mission that must
send the heartless husband and sister to the
penitentiary for a lung term of years."
Obed and his wife have been taken to
Huron for a hearing. Some curiosity is felt
as to what will be done with his claim proved
up under the name of John Baker.
Trails to Coenr 'tl Alene.
[Special Telegram to the Globe.J
Belknap, Mon., March 19.—After having
carefully examined the merits and demands
of the different trails connecting the North
ern Pacific railroad with Eagle City, in the
Cceur d' Alene mining districts, surveyors
are satisfied that the trail from Belknap is by
far the best one, and is to be the main route.
The trail is now qnite soft, owing to a heavy
rain and thaw, but the more rain and thaw
we have the sooner a wagon road will be es
tablished. At present passengers are carried
half way on bob-sleds and the balance of tie*
way on ponies. There is at present no realty
good trail through, but this one will be the
first to run teams in, and is the shortest,
the distance is thirty miles, and no grades
are encountered heavy enough to make the
road impracticable, but the snow will have to
melt before any permanent wagon road can
be establiehed. The telegraph company have
under construction a line that will connect
Eagle City with the outer world in ten days.
Belknap is booming, the town is full of peo
ple and has quite a metropolitan aspect.
Buildings are going up as fast as the mills
can furnish lumber. The mines are as yet
undei three feet of snow.
Providence, March 19.—The Democratic
State convention this morning was largely
attended. Chas. H. Page was chosen chair
man. After the roll had been made and
the temporary organization made permanent,
John M. Brennan nominated George H.
Corliss for governor. George J. West said
he understood that Corliss could have been
the Republican nominee for the last twenty
years. He nominated Amasa Sprague, of
Wauwack, saying it was neither right nor
consistent for the Democratic party
to nominate a Republican. This nomination
was seconded. Thomas W. Segar, of Wester
ly was also nominated. An informal ballot
was token following result: Whole number
of votes cast 97; Corliss 45, Sprague 28, Se
gar 22, Scattering 2. The formal ballot re
suited as follows: The whole number of
votes cast; Corliss 44, Sprague 26, Segar 2.
A number of dilatory motions were made
and finally a motion to declare Corliss the
nominee was adopted by 62 to 28.
Mr. Corliss was waited on by the commit
tee to inform him of the nomination, but he
declined the honor.

ZORA. BURNS MURDER TRIAL.
Petersburg, 111., March 19.—The defense
in the Carpenter trial called a number of
witnesses to prove that Carpenter's actions
on the morning after the murder were
natural. Relatives of the family visiting
them on the night of the murder testified
when Carpenter returned home. A number
of witnesses testified that Zora Burns was
frequently seen in the company of a train
boy, named Carter, in Decatur, and testi
mony is offered to the effect that she went
to that place to meet him. There is a great
deal of testimony to prove that the character
of the girl was not good.
TK1ED FOR MURDER.
Cincinnati, March 19. —In the trial ot
Wm. Berner for the murder of Wm. H. Kirk,
which has been in progress several days, bis
confessions were admitted by the court after
strenuous efforts by the defense to rule them
out. Berner took "the stand as a witness iu
his own behalf. He admitted being
present at the murder, but
laid the whole blame on Joseph Palmer, say-
Ing, wheu he remonstrated with Palmer for
striking Kirk, Palmer threatened to kill him.
He went ou to detail the cruelties and perse
cutions of the police and reporters to extort
a confession, when an objection was inadu
aud the question argued.
THE CROUCH TRIAL.
Jackson. Mich., March 1».— The Crouch
murder examination was renewed this after
noon. A large crowd was iu attendance.
The prosecution summoned/tora McGonegal,
who detailed Fay's description of tbe mur
der two days after its occurrence. Fay told
him about it, as he did several others. This
was at Crouch's house. Witness said the
crowd remarked that the man who did tbe
deed should be strung up, when Fay became
very much excited, trembled and soon left.
Mr. aud Mrs. Elmer Hatch gave testimony
to Brown telling them of seeing a letter in
Jud Crouch's coat that lay over a beam In
the baru. Nettie Suyder testified that she
worked at Holcomb's until ten days after the
murder. She washed the clothes the Mon
day after the murder, and swept the boys,
room. There were no bloody clothes there.
She swept behind the chest. She testi
fied to seeing Fay and Jud but there
were no marks of blood on tbem. Dr. Wil
liams testified that he saw no blood in White'*
room, except on the pillow and bed clothes.
He examined closely. Two or three wit
nesses testified to Holcomb's exhibiting emo
tion on the morning following the murder,
also, that Jud appeared cool aud natural.
The wife of Galen Brown, (tin* detective),
testified that siie is not living with him at
present. She was married live years ago.
She identified a letter said to have been writ
ten by (ialeu within live days, but the con
tents were not disclosed. Brown was called
but did not answer.
The Cattle Disease.
St. Locis, Mo., March 19. —Governor
Crittenden has addressed a letter to the chair
man of the meeting recently held iu Adair
county, this state, where the foot and mouth
disease is said to Imvc appeared, in which he;
•Mlvise-; people to use prompt and vigorous
measures to stamp out the disease. He aiUs
attention to a certain law on the subject, and
thinks it sufficient to meet the emergency if
properly enforced. He says he will do every
thing in his power to assist in staying the
spread of the malady, and desires to be kept
informed of tne condition of things. In re
ply to a request of E. H. Craig, who formerly
Inspected the cattle yards at Brighton
Medford and Cambridge, Mass., but now a
prominent farmer aud cattle raiser at Cald
well, in this state, who asks for the appoint
ment of a commission with full power to ef
fectively deal with the disease, the govern
ment says he has no authority to create such
a commission, and expresses the belief that
the existing law is ample to protect any com
raunlty.if the people will use proper exertion.
An opinion seems to be growing, both in thia
state and Kansas, that the reports of the dis
eas.* has been exaggerated, and tliat much
if not all the sickness among cattle, is the
result of foot rot or frost bites, and not th»
dreaded foot and mouth disease at all.

The Cloquet Fire.
The fire at the C. N. Nelson company's*
lumber yards at Cloquet, was not so de'
structive as it was first thought to be. The
full extent of the damage was as follows !
The dry kiln, erected at a«ost of $11,000,
wholly destroyed. The shingle shed
eost $600, burned to the ground.
In this shed were about 1,000,000
shingles valued at $2,000 which were all
burned. The piping and heating apparatus
of the kiln were not destroyed. The totol
loss foots up about $13,600." Insurance on
the kiln was $5,000 and ou the contents of
the shed $2,500; from this it will be seen
that the companv losses about $6,100, instead
of $50,000 as stated by the Duluth press.
