The Criterion* and Miss Glover Last Even
The beautiful chapel audience room of the
Park Congregational church was thoroughly
filled with a very select audience at 8 o'clock
last evening, at the first public appearance
of the Criterion Concert company, of St.
Paul, who scored a grand success under the
directorship of Prof. C. O. Titcomb, and won
for themselves shower after shower of hearty
The acoustic properties of the chapel were
thoroughly tested on this occasion, and can
be pronounced faultless, while the centre
aud alcove wings were elegantly lighted.
The exercises opened by a piano duo by
Morris Schoefler and Titeomb, in which were
many passages of delightful harmony, aud a
brilliancy of execution, which kept every
listner on the qiri vive. This was followed by
the much applauded quartette, " You Stole
My Love.'' by Misses Rand and Gildden, and
Messrs. White and DeLacy.
Miss Glover with her fine voice and unusu
al powers of mimicry and gesture made a
great hit in her reading of Racket, the
bootblACk's Christmas charity, who gave all
be had to a poor girl and dined on a crust
with not a penny in his pocket and as happy
as a king, and being re-called recited a bit
of humorous little girl prattle in response.
Again iv "Rispah" she was very taking but
her crowning reading was the delineation of
the rough criticism of the old and uncultured
man in his description of the playing of
Rubenstein or "Ruby" the great composer
The violoncello solo by Arthur E. Holdt
was simply beautiful, and to the warm ap
plause which greeted him at its close the
artist made a graceful bow of recognition.
Mr. White in the song, "Arise My Love,
Arise," sang sweetly enough to arouse any
blushing beauty from her slumber, while his
tenor voice was wonderfully pure and dis
tinct in both the higher and lower notes, as
he held it,in the completest command.
Chas DeLacy in the song, "Capture of
Bacchus," was a successful Corro and was
greeted with high marks of approbation from
the audience. The great musical tally
of the evening however was the song "Alia
Stella Confidente," by Miss Jingle Glidden
with cello obligato and piano accompani
ment. The clear but contrato voice of this
lady, and her admirable command of it,
with the wealth of beautiful tones clim
ated from both instruments all blending in
perfect time, harmony and accord, was, to
say the very least, Very entrancing and en
In the trio "I Noviganti," by Miss
Josephine Rand and Messrs. White and De
Lacy, which was finely rendered, the fine

In all its features the entertainment was
an entire success and a more thoroughly
gratified audience than the one at Park church
cannot be imagined. St. Paul has every rea
son for honest pride in its "home talent,"
and Miss Glover and the Criterions will
have, as they certainly should, ample em
ployment in entertaining their friends,whose
number is limited only by the roll-call of the
city's population. Let us have them again

Col- Calkins on a Chicago Paper.
Many people in St. Paul will remember
Col. Calkins, who, eight or ten years ago was
the principal writer on the Pivneer, before
that paper passed out of existence.Col. Calkins
was a racy, sharp and versatile writer, and
upon whatever subject he discussed he was
entertaining and instructive. After he left
St. Paul he published a society paper In Mil
waukee which was a great success. It will
be seen from the following from the Wiscon
sin that he is about to take a prominent posi
tion on one of the Chicago daily papers:
Col. E. A. Calkins, for many years past re
cognized as one of the ablest and most brilliant
journalists in the Northwest, has completed ar
rangements for removing to Chicago, where he
will occupy a leading editorial position on one
of the daily papers. His family will remain
here and he will regard Milwaukee as his home,
probably until fall, and he will often be seen
about here until that time. A friend of Col.
Calkins informs the Wisconsin that he receives
one of the largest salaries paid to Chicago news
They Were Serenaded
Arrangements were completed for giving
a serenade to P. J. Giesen, Otto Dreher and
Geo. Reis who were elected, the latter as city
treasurer, and the two former as school in
spectors. It was the intention to have the
German societies and the Great Western
band call upon them to-night but the latter
organization was suddenly called upon to go
to Minneapolis to-day, and was consequently
unable to go this evening. It accord
ingly called at the residence of each of
the gentlemen and presented its
respects to them, partly because all three of
the gentlemen have always been good friends
to the organization, and the members de
sired to extend their congratulations to the
successful candidaies, and partly because of
personal friendship. At each of the places
the band furnished some choice selections
and personally manifested their regards for
their countrymen who had be«n successful
in the late election. It was a pleasant affair

Max Eibert, a well known citizen and

his citizenship of the United States yesterday
by appearing before the supreme court and
producing satisfactory evidence that as a
subject of the king of Bavaria, he appeared
before the court of common pleas of Hamil
ton county Ohio, in August, 1854, and de
clared his intentions of becoming a citizen
of the United States, and further severed his
allegiance by declaring on oath before the
supreme court his withdrawal of allegiance
to all foreign rulers and his support of the
constitution of the United States. The
court, therefore, ordered that he be admitted
to full rights of citizenship and that he be de
clared as such. It is understood that Mr.
Eibert is to pay a visit
to Germany the present season.
Messrs. Abraham Schumann and Theodore

In Search of a Rascal.
Quite a smart German woman applied for
lodgings at the city hall last night and after
hearing her pitiful story Landlord O'Keefe
furnished her the best accommodations at
the station. She had been deserted withhhrer
three children by her husband at Dubuque,
lowa, nine years ago, and had a poverty
stricken time in supporting them and her
self. Two weeks ago she received a letter
from St. Paul that if she would come here
her husband would meet her at the union
depot and take care of her. She gathered
together $10 and started, but found no hus
band at the depot as the letter promised, and
wants now to get back there again. When
just about leaving Dubuque, a man spoke to
her in the depot, whom she did not know,
calling her by name and she now thinks it
was her rascally husband.
Description of Brown County.
Hon. Wm. Pfaender of Brown county, late
state treasurer, has just issued a handsomely
printed pamphlet of eighteen pages descrip

the claims of that part of the state for settle
ment, business and residence. Secretary
Young, of the State board of immigration,
says that it is one of the best local descriptive

Dubuque, la., May 7.—The war of rates
between the Diamond Jo company and the
St. Paul railroad has not taken any impor

the Illinois Central has met the cut to a lim

other points south of here equal to that of

cials say that freight has increased thirty per
cent., and they anticipate an increase of one
hundred per cent, with the present week.
They also state that they do not mean to
come to terms with the steamboat company,
as it was the latter which struck the first
blow. Superintendent Bills, of the steamboat
company, says they were forced to it, and

The Dakota township system works a little

It is believed that the Broadaxe did Judge
Palmer injustice in the statement that the

appointed to the bench, and, of course,could
not have resided on the claim long enough

The Blunt Times makes this point of inter

well decided that a pre-eraptor may mort

Commissioner McFarland not. only follows
Secretary Teller's decision, but decides also
that a mortgage on a claim to secure pay

Those who may contemplate jumping claims
may as well remember that the government
requires settlement and cultivation in good

Bluut Times: A. D. Tilton, who is holding
a claim on section 6—ll3 —75, which Chas.
Price entered, andwhich contains an excess,
has received a letter from Register Armstrong
saying that the commissioner of the general
land office has informed him that Mr. Price
has been notified to select which tracts he
will retain under his entry No. 2845, and
that Mr. T.s application will be further con
sidered after the commissioners' final action
in the case of Price. This is the land about
which there have already been two forcible
entry and detainer suits before justices'
courts, and has been in dispute since June
last. Price proved up on the land in May
last and got his receipt for the whole "quar
ter," which contains 317 acres, but Tilton
was allowed to file on the excess after Price
made proof under a ruling that no claimant
could hold more than 160 acres. The case,

" 'Do you see that woman, fair, fat and
forty, dressed in black, wearing spectacles,
sitting by the justice?l " eald*a friend to the
Gleaner while visiting In the police court
on Saturday afternoon. 'Well, she is the
sister of Miss Zora Burns, whose mysterious
murder at Lincoln, 111., caused so much ex
citement. She Is here In court to-day with
her husband, W. E. Dukes, whose dishonest
pranks a few weeks ago caused considerable
talk and his arrest. He is about to be re
leased upon his own recognizance. His rel
atives say that he fell among bad people as
he arrived in Pierre. Guess he didn't have
far to fall, judging from his countenance.'
We agreed with our informant in his last re

There will be earnest effort made among
the Republicans in south Dakota to present a
solid and invincible front when they hold the
convention a few months later to nominate
a congressman and other candidates. The
Sioux Falls J'ress wants this impression to
prevail In that section: "No question of
such importance ever confronted the people
of Dakota, as is now before it in the matter
of political solidification of the southern por
tion, and any agency which interferes there
with is simply playing into the hands of the
capital dealers." The north men have al
ways succeeded in taking the most of the
rags off the political shruhbery, and it is gen
erally believed that the wires are securely
laid for the next bout. There are factions in
both sections, but the north don't allow its
strength to be frittered away by them in the
presence of the superior numbers of the
south. The record Is not likely to be changed
this year at least.
Keystone Commercial: Rev. R. G. Clark,
the Presbyterian minister at Elleudale, was
arrested last week on complaint of one An
drew J. Nelson, charged with theft. Clark
has charge of a tree claim that joins him,and
during last summer Nelson went upon the
said tree claim and cut the hay contrary to
the wishes of Clark, who ordered him to stop.
Nelson stacked the hay on his own claim,
and later Clark commenced hauling It away,
whereupon Nelson had him arrested a3 stat
ed above. These are the facts as near as we
crui learn, but the trial, which has been post
poned until next week may develops some
thing new. No doubt the matter will be
equitably adjusted at the hands of a jury.
Democratic. Paper at Brand Rapids.
The Grand Forks Herald says: "Mr. R.
Bennett, secretary of the Democratic club,
is authority for the statement that H. E. Mc-
Lelland, ex-editor and proprietor of the
Shullsburg, (Wis.) Free Press, who has been
in the city and a guest of A. J. O'Keefu, for
several weeks, is making arrangements to
shirt a Democratic newspaper in this city at
an early day. Our Democratic friends evi
dently think the time has come for the estab
lishment of an organ." It is designed to
start as a weekly with a daily in early pros
pect. The Democrats are believed to be In
the majority in the Grand Forks region and
able to sustain a first-class paper.
An ineffectual attempt was made Monday
night to burglarize the safe of Jones & Kel
ly, general merchandize store, Flandreau.
The hinges of the safe (a Hall) were battered
and broken with an old ax and the dial of the
combination smashed. The burglars had to
content themselves with what change was in
the money drawer in another part of the
store. The till of Tobin & Eriekson's saloon
was also tapped by the same parties probably,
and relieved of the small change.
Everyflilng Flourishing at Dell Rapids.
To the Editor of the Globe:
Dell Rapids, D. T., May 3. —The season
for tree planting has been recognized, and
more attention then ever has been given to
the cultivators of fruit. The receipts of nur
scry stock at this station iudicate that this
part of the territory will not always be de
pendent on the eastern markets for apples
and small fruits, and the success that has
attended this industry heretofore is the stim
ulus which has promoted the present activity
in that department. The rapid growth of
timber also upon the numerous tree claims
promises a full supply of fuel, so that
when political intrigue can no
1 ongcr prevent admission as a state.
Dakota will be comparatively independent of
all other states for the essential elements of
prosperity. Having very little to do in pres
idential making, everybody can be usefully
employed until the time for nominating a
new delegate to draw his salary for the next
two years in Washington, when many, no
doubt, will neglect their business to attend
the bi-ennial exhibition of political martyrs
who are willing to be sacrificed on their
country's alter for the good of Dakota, if the
scarlet robes of office only be given them for
a winding sheet.
We feel happy to be so favorably situated
in a land so fruitful and prolific, where there
is, or is about to be, an abundant sapply of
everything, politicians even not being ex

American Forestry Congress.
Washington, May 7.—The American
Forestry congress met to-day at the agricul
tural buildins:, with Commissioner Loring in
the chair. The early portion of the session
was occupied by the discussion of a paper
presented by J. W. Miner, 111., which was a
areneral resume of the various questions
which arc to come before the convention.
Senators Miller, New York, and Sawyer of
Wisconsin, gave their views in the preserva
tion of our forests, especially the white pine
forests of the north. The congress
adopted resolutions to the effect that
this association has witnessed with great
satisfactaction the attempt of the state of New
York to preserve, protect and regulate the
sale of lumber in the forests at the head
waters of the Hudson and Mohawk rivers,and
that legislation in this direction should be
encouraged in all the states of the union, by
the establishment of experimental stations
and forestry committees by states, is earnest
ly recommended. That the .aid of the fed
eral government, by appropriate legislation,
for the care and duvelopemcnt of forests is

premises would be advisible.
