A. J. Wampler & Co.
Messrs A. J. Wampeler & Co., who were
burned out a week ago to-night, have suc
ceeded in putting things in order so rapidly
that they are again in full working order and
rapidly catching up the time lost on account
of the fire. They are working day and night
and in a few days will be in as good shape
as they were previous to the disaster a week
ago. The plucky manner in which, they
grasped the situation of affairs and sailed in
to the ruins, is certainly much to their cred
it, and when we consider what they have ac
complished in the past week, we do not
marvel at their being able to serve their cus
tomers without seemingly an interruption.
Their establishment, in its new dress, does
not bear an imprint of last Saturday's fire,
and everything is in splendid working order.

The Doon Branch.
[Sioux City Journal, 17.]
In the railroad news of yesterday an ar
ticle was reprinted from the Rock Rapids
Review about the Doon branch. The sub
stance of this was that Manager Winter
promised that if the people of Rock Rapids
would find what kind of a route could be
got for a road south, and about what the
right-of-way would cost, he would come down
and see about extending the Doou branch.
Now, an extension from Doon r.south is in
the direction of Sioux City, and canuot
Sioux City people afford to join with Rock
Rapids in having an exploration made from
Doon to Sioux City? If it is the cost of right
of-way that checks the building of the road,

A ROUTE SUGGESTED.
The route for an cxteusion of the Doon
braueh to Sioux City would be down the Rock
river to Rock Valley, thence across the level
prairie of central Sioux county to the head of
the Perry creek, in the north part of Plym
outh county, and on down that valley to
Sioux city. The entire line would be through
a well settled country, and one that would
afford the company a good deal of business.
Its importance to Sioux City is too manifest
to need pointing out, further than that it
would give a direct connection with the Iro

Plain Talk to President Endicott.
New Yokk, April 18.—A letter, signed by
a large number of stockholders of the Oregon
Transcontinental company has been sent to
President Endicott, asking him to furnish at
once a full list of and particulars concerning
the company's liabilities. They ask that the
offices and books of the company be returned
to New York, and express the opinion that
their removal was a mistake. They further
ask to bo informed whether the directors
have formed any plans for putting the in
debtedness of the company into a more
favorable form, and for relieving it of some
of its more burdensome contracts. They ex
press confidence that the company will
come triumphantly out of its embarrass
ments, but hope that President Endicott
will realize the grayity of the present situa
tion. They add, "We feel it is not receiving
from the directors that careful attention
which its exigencies demand, and, should
you decide to maintain your present attitude
toward the stockholders, we should regard
any subsequent misfortune which may be
fall the company as justly chargeable to you
and your associates."
The Missouri Pacific to Loan the Wabash
The leading officials of the Missouri Pacific
and Wabash systems have been in New York
for some time past, and have been holding
daily conferences with Jay Gould. These
conferences have created the impression that
the Wabash is in a bad shape, and that the
question of defaulting the interest on the
Wabash bonds In June is under consldpra-
tion. These reports have had the effect of
depressing all the Gould stock to an extraor
dinary extent. Wabash preferred was
quoted Thursday at 16*4, an<i Wabash com
mon at S-X- Parties prominently con
nected with the Wabash say there is
no immediate danger of the Wabash going
into bankruptcy. They do not deny that the
Wabash did not earn enough to pay the in
terest on its bonds. The conferences with
Gould in New York, they say, were not for
the purpose of considering the question of
allowing the Wabash to go into the hands of
a receiver, but to prevent such result. The
subject under consideration, it is said, was
to provide the means for paying the interest
promptlv, and it is proposed that the Missou
ri Pacific should loan the Wabash $6,000,000
to earn- it over its difficulties. Whether the
proposition has been agreed upon or not
could not be learned.

Funeral of Gilbert Pottgieser.
The fuucral of the late Gilbert Pottg'iscr
took place from the late residence of the de
ceased on Wabashaw street at two o'clock
yesterday afternoon. At that hour a large
concourse of sorrowing friends assembled
at the house and took a farewell view of the
remains, after which they were escorted to
Christ church on west Fourth street, where
appropriate religious services were held, the
sacred edifice being filled with mourners.
The casket in which the body rested was
fairly covered with floral offerings, the tri
butes being both beautiful and numerous.
The services were conducted by
the Rev. Dr. Gilbert, and vocal selections
were rendered by a quartette consisting of
Messrs. Wood. Manner, Buckelew and Dor-
gan, the music being particularly fine.
After the religious services, the remains
were taken to Oakland cemetry, the pall
bearers being Messrs. John Mank, Edward
MeKinney. Edward Schliek, T. Vervais.

ra.-h on a four months old baby. They swarm
in all parts of the county, each with his little
clique, who swear by him and declare that he
is the winning man. They come up in unex
pected places; each morning's sun rises on
some new aspirant, who, of course, "submit
ting to the choice of the people," would still,
prefer to have them choose him.
Dakota county is Democratic In its tenden
cies, having given Biermann over four hun
dred majority, and being ready to swear till
the 4th of November, that Sammy J., is the
only man fit for preident; but that does not
prevent a few Republicans coming within its
bounds. There are a few, none of them un
alloyed Republicans, but of the half-breed
stamp. In fact, to draw the line a little
closer, it seems, that every man who has
failed to get an oflice, turns Republican, till
the time for election approaches, and then
he's a tariff-for- re venue-Tom-Jefferson, Dem
The Democracy of Dakota county as yet
have made no choice of a candidate for con
gress. The Hon. J. F. Norrish is mentioned
by some as a suitable man but he explicitly
denies any intention of seeking that office
unless—may I add—the "dear people" ask
him to. John is a good Democrat, and I
feel almost sure that he has the congressional
bee in his head or his pocket book, for it will
cost some money to secure an election in
this district this year. This fact bars out
Hon. A. H. Knox and II. (iillitt, both Hast
ings men, from the field, though they desire
the Republican nomination for congress.
Knox is a nervous, wiry gentleman, on
present state senator, and has some ability,
aud enough strength to take an anti-Strait
delegation from here to Faribault. He Will
oppose Horace B. with a possible disastrous
result to the major, but he can't get the
nomination, except by a miracle, and Inger
soll says so, they are impossible—and I doubt
if a miracle would be worked to do a favor
for a Republican. They became de
bared and lost after Hayes' election.
Mr. Truax is not working very hard forthe
place, and I do not think that his expecta
tions of defeat are far from true. Mr. (iil
litt is comparatively unknown In the district.
In Hastings, thongh, he edits a paner with a
sworn (?) circulation of one thousand. His
popularity is not sufficient to insure him any
support. He is a Republican gone moon
struck, thinking the world will mourn if he
is not chosen to be one of the sons of Zion,
or congress—both synonymous in his ears.
At present the gentleman is out in the dis
trict among the "rurals" looking for stray
votes. I am sure that he will find about as
many as Logan has for president. Both of

Burglarious Industry at Hoxsie & Jag-
gar's Jackson Street Store.
The nocturnal and enterprising "gopher,"
or safe-blower, was on deck again in St.
Paul Thursday night, but as on previous oc
casions of late, his herculeau labors were re
warded with but very meagre swag.
It must have been the witching hour of mid
night when the particular crooks in question,
whose postoflice address is just now a sub
ject of inquiry, pried open a basement win
dow in the rear of the commission store of
Hoxsie & Jaggar on Jackson street and thus
obtained entrance. They then ascended to
the ground floor of the building and made
arrangements to "crack" the safe, which
they proceeded to do in the most scientific
manner known to burglars. Before doing so.
however, they helped themselves
freely to oranges and after smoking
a few snipes, the stubs of which were left
lying around loose, they proceeded to busi
ness. No light was kept in the store, and
for this reason, the locality being very dark,
they had things mostly their own way. Con
sidering the small amount of money ob
tained, not over .^20 in change, their work
was Immensi • They Iirst carried about forty
sacks of flour and corn meal from the rea :
part of the store to the
safe, an'l with them built around
it a perfect caisson, the Intention being to
deaden the sound—which they succeeded in
doing admirably. After submerging the safe
under a mountain of Hour, a hole was drilled
through tiie top and a heavy charge of pow
der inserted. The result was that the doors
of the safe were blown completely off and
several sacks of flour perished in the ex
plosion. Thr- charge must have been fearful,
as it dislocated a couple of perpendicular
posts which had been put up in the
basement to support the safe.
When the firm got around in the morning
the store looked as if it had been struck by a
cyclone or blizzard. As stated the burglars
secured only $20 for their pains. The. safe
contained a number of valuable papers, but
these were fouud lying loose ou the Boor.
The police made several arrests yesterday,
but they were fouud to have not been impli
The Committee of Thirty Adopts a
Last evening was another bad night for the
meeting of the high license committee. It
was dark, damp and sloppy, and altogether
an uncomfortable night generally in which
to come out. The consequence is that the
attendance was quite limited. The time
for the members of the committee of thirty to
assemble at Gen. Becker's office was
eight o'clock, yet at that hour no one had
arrived, but the members dropped in one at
a time, until at half past eight the meeting
was called to order, with fourteen members
present. As soon as tins was done a motion
was made and adopted that the meeting be a
private one, held with closed doors, and that
the representatives of the papers be requested
to withdraw. Upon this being done the
newspaper men who were present left Gen.
Becker's office, and the doors behind them
were closed, leaving the members of the
committee alone for consultation.
WHAT WAS DOXE.
About teu o'clock the press was furnished
with the following resolutions, that were
adopted by the committee:
Q"_—etof—, By the committee,unanimously,
that the electors of this city, in favor
of high license, will support
any candidate presented by
either party for the office of alderman who
will promise to support a charge for a license
of not less than $500.
'•Jie.i'j'.val, That in case neither presents
such a candidate in any precinct voting at
the coming election for alderman, this com
mittee will undertake to present such a can
didate to the voters of such precincts."

Raymond's Friend* Angry.
The friends of Col. Raymond, the deli
to congress, are reported to be in ill humor
over the action of the convention ofthe
16th, in setting down so plumply and rapid
ly on the resolutions in his favor. It lias
been believed that most of the members r.f
the convention were really friendly to the
member, bnt were working on a cut-and
dried plan, and had failed to put on the pro
gramme anything in regard to the gentle
man. They were completely dazed when an
outsider threw in the little bomb, which as
tonished and dumbfounded them bo that
they hardly knew what I lit-v were doing.
They see now that they blundered In a very
absurd way in kicking under thi
only expression in his favor, and are pulling
each others' ears over the matter. The
master at Wheatland who was retained In
office at thr- special request of the memlx r,is
puzzled to find any theory that will explain
his vehement kick at the resolutions In a
way that will be satisfactory to Mr. Raymond.
It got s forth to the country that the gentle
man's own home repudiates him. Some
suspect, however, that the leaders in the con
vention are really at heart down on him.

The Fast Mail infects.
There is not entire satisfaction here (Far
go) with the arrangement of trains over the
Northern Pacific since the fast mail was put
on. Previous to that parties could come to
Fargo from as far west as Jamestown, and
have ample time to do their business, re
turning home the same day. This brought
quite a large retail trade here from all the
towns for seventy-five miles west on that
road. Now it requires two days to come
from any of the localities west anrl
do any business, the parties having I i
in Fargo over night. Few will do this, and
consequently the retail trade is seriously
affected, and there is m:;r-h grumbling.
Aboutrthc only advatage visible from the fasl
train is that Chicago papers and east rn let
ters roach here sooner. The new ar range
mi nt works to the detriment of the St. Paul
papers west of Fargo, as they lie here till the
arrival of the train with the Chicago |
arid go west with them. Fairness Would
seem to require that a fast mail should leave
St. Paul at -A a. m. and run through to Bis
Dakota Farming Discussed by Farmers.

the Farmers' alliance at Georgetown, tin
past week, as furnished the I how
the farmers succeed in this part of the Red
river vatiey: 'The members are in favor of
building elevators according to the plan pre-
Bentedbythe Northwestern Grain Dealers 1
associatioti. 'Farming in this county' was
then discussed. E. Griffin said 'the grand
est move a poor man ever made was when
he came to this country and settled on a
farm.' He mentioned a number of farmers
who to-day were worth $10,000, and they had
made it from their farms during the
past three or four years. He himself two
years ago was poorer than Job's turkey,
but to-ciay $3,000 would not buy his interests
here." Mr. Griffin made a good argument
His mode of farming is to diversify. H.
Wilson ''tried farming in Stearns county,
got in debt, came here and made money
enough to square himself with the world and
returned, but only to get in the mire d< ep ir
thau ever. He then sold a plow for $10,
purchased a ticket for Georgetown, and ar- j
rived here with just >:i."j0. He now has a u r ' od
home. The young man is worth ?:3,000."
Mr. Lewis "had no fault to find; was Well
pleased; said the farmers ought to provide
the necessaries of life a year ahead in
of failure of crops." James Jesme says:
"We must raise wheat because It was the
only crop we can depend on, but our circum
stances should be so that we could hold our }
grain." Mr. Enney said: "We can raise I
