A BIG BLAZE.
The Hay Warehouse of Charles Col
ter Burned to the Ground.
The alarm of fire from box No. 5, at 7:33
last nignt, was occasioned by the discovery
of flames issuing from the two-story frame
building used as a bay pressing repository,
and situated on Marshall avenue, between
Dale and St. Alban streets.
The buildings were two in number, 30x57
feet in dimensions, besides which ttiere were
two sheds, aB the property of Mr. Chas. Col
ter. The department made good
time, considering the beastly condi
tion of the streets, but the
character and contents of the buildings and
contents were such as to make effectual ser
vice impossible. The flames spread as if fed
on powder, and the buildings were almost
The two main buildings contained about
♦5,000 worth of baled hay, all of which was
destroyed, and one of the sheds contained
three head of cattle, which was also con
sumed. The latter were valued at $200. The
loss on the buildings is estimated at §2,000,
and the entire loss is covered by insurance.
Adjoining one of the main buildings is
the residence of Charles Colter, Jr. This
was damaged to the extent of $200 or §300;

Tiie Board of Education—A Chance to Im
To the Editor of the Globe:
It is gratifying to know that all through
the city the importance of selecting thor
oughly competent men and honest men for
the board of education at the coming elec
tion is constantly and earnestly canvassed,
and a deep determination manifested that
the citizens of St. Paul shall no longer be
mortified and humiliated by such exhibitions
and disclosures on the part of our school in
spectors as there bave recently been.
In the third precinct of the Fourth ward a
special interest has been 6hown, and several
conferences held without regard to sect, na
tionality or party, and the fitness and chances
of success of various worthy gentlemen care
fully canvassed, the result of which is a
seemingly unanimous verdict that the Hon.
R. B. Galusha is the one man whose duty
it is to suffer the use of his name by the
friends ofthe city and her schools, as a can-
didate for school inspector for the third pre*
cinct of the Fourth ward.
Mr. Galusha has been seen, but while ac
knowledging the obligation of every one to
do what he can to redeem the city's good
name and promote our educational interets,
he is yet averse to assuming new burdens,
and insists upon the nomination of some one
else, with a promise of hearty support to any
gentleman of either party, whose record for
abilitv, education and integrity was good.
Now this is just what Mr. Galusha him
self—does poss 'ss, —a long, well-established
i record as a go;d business man, a man of
; ability and of liberal culture—interested in
the cause of education —interested in the
ennd name and well being of the city in
winch he is an "old settler," and I hope that
such pressure will be brought to bear upon
bim as will yet gain his assent to the use oi
his name—ani then that all good citizens,
all parents having ciiildren to educate, anil
all friends of education will go to work
with a will to secure his election.
I. am a Republican, Mr. Galusha is a Demo
crat I believe, but in this and in all loeai
offices I do not permit politics to bias me,
but out of the two tickets select the best men,
and in this case would be glad not only to
vote for him but from now till the polls
close work to secure his election.

TJie Emerson Concert.
The Emerson concert at the Grand Opera
house, under the auspices of Acker Post, G.
A. R., of this city, last evening was well at
tended and was a very enjoyable musical
event. The piano solos, "Arabesque"jand
"Massa's in tbe cold,coid ground," by Lizzie
Higgins, showed a very fine touch and bril
liant execution; the violiu 6o!os of
Charles F. Higirins, the ' latter being
"St, Patrick's Day" by the Pol
iish compose) Wineowski were
rendered with much skill and marked ex
pression ; Lily Runals, in her graud aria was
recalled, she has a sweet aud powerful mezzo
suprano voice, and her elocutionary powers,
as exhibited in the recitation "Sherican's
Bide," were of the highest order; Walter
Emerson, recognized as standing in the
leading ranks of cornetists, charmed the
audience with the "Carnival de Venice" and
"i'l Trovatore," in which latter he was ac
companied by Lem H. Wiley. On recall
Mr. Emerson was beyond all criticism in his
beautiful rendering of "Nearer My God to
Thee," after which, with Mr. Wiley, he
still further delighted the audience with a
cornet duett "Sweet Genevive." The comic
recitation of Lizzie Hiagins in "Nora Mur
phy and the Spirits" was also very pleasingly
given as well as most amusing.
The musical portion of tbe entertainment
was followed by the members of Acker post
assisted by the Emerson troupe in a vivid
representation of real camp life, the appear
ance of the camp in the morning and even
ing, the false alarm, the surgeon's call
for examination of the ta-oops
and the arrival from a forage by Sherman's
command being to the life. The varied camp
exercises were interspersed with old army
songs in which the veterans showed much
