To the Honorable District Court of SamseijCoun
The grand jury in the performance of its
duty, beg to report that the public prisons
and charitable institutions of Ramsey county
have been visited and examined, the result of
such examinations being embodied in the re
ports of the several committees hereto at
taelied, which are made a part of this report,
and the recommendations specially com
We feel it a duty to call attention to the
law governing the detention and imprison
ment of material witnesses, and so far as
lies within our power we ask the legislature to
amend the law, making it more stringent if
consistent with the constitution, for holding
witnesses for final trial in criminal cases.
Also, we think the ends of justice are not
subserved by the limitation of three years,
within which crimes can only
be prosecuted. A flagrant crime
was clearly proved before the "jury in which
the principal criminal could not be indicted
owing to this limitation, while his less guilty
asreut was indicted owing to [the absence of
the latter live months from the state.
The grand jury further deem it their duty
to say that a very large proportion of the
crimes against persons and property which
they have been called to consider have origi
nated in the abuses of the traffic in intoxi
cating liquor. They rcspecfully call atten
tion to the violations of existing laws in the
matter of selling ltquor to drunkards and
minors and at unlawful hours of night and
Sundays. It has been in evidence before
the jury, the officers of the law, policemen
themselves, being the witnessess that habit
ually and almost universally the saloons of
Ramsey county utterly disregard the law that
forbids sale of liquor to
young men under age and to men
i ntoxieated or habitual drunkards. These
offenses are not indictable and therefore the
jury was not called on to give the law effect.
But as most of the indictable offenses which
the jury has had to consider were in some
way connected with the abuses in the sale
of intoxicants the jury deem it proper to thus
publicly call attention to the matter, with
the hope thai those officers of the law who
have a. direct responsibility for licensing
saloons, and seeing that they obey the law,
will exercise their power and do whatever
can be done lawfully to lessen the evils re
ferred to. It seems almost invidious to
name any one whose violation of the law
has incidentally been in evidence before the
jury, where it is morally certain that a hun
dred others are equally guilty, of whose of
fenses specifically the jury have not had
evidence, yet it is a duty name
two offenders in this regard, viz: John
Simens, ■ '•'.*) University avenue, and Thomas
Horan, 1 corner of Fifth and Rosabel, in St.
The grand jury are of the opinion that if!
the municipal authorities were vigilant in the
enforcement of existing laws, ii the police
men were instructed and carried out such
instructions, to make prompt arrests when
they know the law to be violated, especially
where minors and men drunk or habitual
drunkards received liquor, and if possible, to
prevent minors and drunkards from fre
quenting saloons, removing them in all in
stances when found in saloons, this evil
would be largely mitigated. Still more effect
ive would be the revocation of the licenses
in the case of every offender in this regard.

ALMS HOUSE HOFITAL.
The committee found this institution to be
well conducted and in good general order,t'.:e
sick being well eared for. The register
shows 141) patients admitted since January 1.
1884. and during that time there have been
U-u deaths and thirteen births.
The committee found the institution in as
good and clean condition as possible and
that the prisoners were well fed at the ex
pense of nineteen cents a day per man. The
food was of good quality and none of the
prisoners had complaints to make. Those
who were able bodied were worked on the
farm and road.
They believe that after the present addi
tions arc completed a large number of pris
oners at longer terms than ninety days can
be kept there, when it can become a self
supporting institution with such an efficient
officer as F. A. Renz in charge.
POOR HOUSE AM) FARM.
The committee found things in good shape,
but recommend improvement in ventilation,
an addition to the house fora women's de
partment and wash and bath rooms. To this
recommendation they call the attention of
the board of control.
Tour committee have made a careful ex.
animation. We find the prisoners are near
ly unanimous in their expression as to kind
ly treatment on the part of the officers.
Quite a number complain of the insufficient
quantity of the food, of the poor quality of
the tea and coffee, and'that they are given no
butter, and of the lack of personal attention
on the part of the sheriff, thus letting the
turnkeys have their own way, and of some
other such matters. In these respects we
presume there may be room for improve
ment; still, on the whole, w,e think there is
little real cause for complaint in regard to
The bread and other~food from personal
Inspection we find is good and wholesome.
We think that the hours for meals ought to
be changed bo that three meals will not be
served within a period of eight to ten hours
Complaint is made as to the unfrequent
visits of the county physician. There are a
number of matters which, in our judgment,
deserve the immediat • attention of the pro->
-er authorities. Provision should be made
for a seperate department for women. A
suitable place should be provided for the de
tention of material witnesses. There can
be no responsible excuse for their being
treated as felons and kept with the criminal
class in a common place. The cells and
walls should be cleansed and freshened by
whitewashing as often as bi-monthly.
Spit.urns should be provided for the cells and
corridors. We find the walls along and
near the floor in a large part of
the cells in a very filthy condition.
Cots or some kind of a support should be
provided for the beds besides the cold stone
Boor upon which a large part of the prison
ers are compelled to lie. In every cell new
ticks filled with fresh straw should take the
place of the bags of pulverized straw, (which
might readily be taken for chaff in most.
cases.) The blankets should be washed
more frequently and proper care taken to
prevent the accumulation of vermin.
The water closets provided are an insult
even to depraved humanity. An open
trough or tank filled with water, Into which
all evacuations by the prisoners must be
made, and the filthy matter must remain in
this large vessel until the officer comes to
empty it. no means being provided whereby
the prisoners can turn it off into
the Sewer. It would seem that the mere
mention of this matter will secure
an immediate remedy. A separate faucet
for drinking water is also needed.
The prisoners should be required to keep
the wash bowls clean, or some other provis
ion be made to secure proper care of them.
If consistent with the usual prison rules
some, provision should be made for hanging
up extra articles of clothing in the cells. All
of which is respectfully submitted.

Business in the police court yesterday
opened with a boom, aud the bull pen

good old times, when it was a chilly day,
when hizzoner wasn't called up to dispense
justice to a score of sinners.
Fred Grant, not the son of the ex-White

Juno about her make up that is quite be
witching. Among the suitors for the hand
of the fair Fannie was one Latham, a man
very much her senior in years.
The story goes that the gay lothario invited
Fannie out to Como the other evening, but
she declined to ride. The brother heard of
it and it made him wroth. A couple of nights
ago, Latham met Fannie again and asked
her to row over to the island, from the Sixth
ward, where the parties reside. Fred thought
the thing had gone far enough and so he
laid for the lover with a club. Thursday night
they met and had it out. It is said that Fred
pretty nearly used the suitor up and that he
was assisted by a couple of other men.
Latham was not able to appear in court yes

Alterations at the Market Building:.
Market Master Regan is overseeing a
great and notable change for the better in
the interior of the Market house, the center
stalls in the Wabashaw street end of which
are being torn out entirely, thus opening a
spacious center hall from Wabashaw to St.
Peter street with stalls only on each side.
Tables will be arranged where the center
stalls used to stand for the use of vegetable
dealers, while there are a few stalls left on
the St. Peter street end of the build
ing to rent to butchers. When these interior
alterations are made, and they will be com
pleted in a few days, the entire center of the
building will be lighted at night with electric
burners, and present a magnificent appear
ance. These improvements it is thought
will make the new market as well as the old
market shed a very busy place this season on
both mornings and evenings.

An Important Move.
It is said in railroad circles to-day that the
St. Paul, Minneapolis & Manitoba Railroad
company is about to inaugurate a movement
in Dakota which will be of vast importance
as affecting the revenues of that corporation.
It is stilted that this company is about to
build turnouts and establish elevators for
handling in large quantities Hie wheat pro
duced by the Cass, Cheney, Dalrymple, and
other bonanza farmers of the district; that
the initiative step will shortly be made at two
points, each about v mile distant north and
south from the crossing of the Northern Pa
cilic by the Manitoba west of Casselton, the
northern point being what was known pre
vious to its sale to the Manitoba company as
the Casselton branch of the Northern Pacific.
It is rumored that as a part of this exceed
ingly enterprising project short lines parallel
to the Northern Pacific, diverging east and
west from the two points mentioned, arc

clared that "the president of the United
States may on the recommendation of the
governors of the various strtes and territor

state and territory, whose functions shall
be defined by the said board of manage

To make known throughout the state the
rules concern the organization of the ex
position, and to distribute the forms of ap

other documents relating to the exposition.
To encourage the exhibition of the works
of art, and of the agricultural and industrial
products of the state.
To encourage and to organize the collec

Upon your recommendation 1 was ap
pointed by the president as commissioner
for Minnesota, and Col. Samuel E. Adams
of Minneapolis, was at the same time ap
pointed alternate commissioner; and we have
both duly qualified as such by filing our oaths
of office with the secretary of state at Wash
The time having now arrived when after full
investigation of the status and purposes of
the exposition, and upon your advice as gov
ernor of the state, it seems to be the duty
and further interests of the slate of Minne
sota that the active and general work should
be commenced by making our citizens fully
acquainted witn the plans of the exposition,
and of securing their co-operation in behalf
of a complete exhibition of the arts, indus
tries and resources of the state, I herein
have the honor to suggest
that a board of state management
be constituted consisting of yourself, the
commissioner and the alternate commission
er, and that a meeting be held to perfect the
organization as soon as it will suit your
convenience to join with Col. Adams and
myself in the purpose; said board to have the
general direction of all work relative to our
state collective exhibit for the exposition,
and of the disbursement of and accounta
bility for the fund that may be raised for de
fraying the expenses thereof, and further to
encourage all suitable exhibits, compilation
or collection that may be gathered and fur

President of the Board— F. Ilubbard,
Secretary—Oliver Gibbs, Jr., United States
commissioner, Lake City.
Treasurer— Samuel E. Adams, alter

The secretary was authorized to provide an

XOTE3 BY THE COMMISSIONED.
The exposition was created by an act of
congress approved Febuary IS, 18S3, and
announced to the world by proclamation of
the president, dated September 12 following,
as a national and international industrial
exposition to be conducted under the joint
auspices of United States, the National Cot
tor Planters' association and the city of New
Orleans. The board of management ap
pointed by the president, consists of thirteen
of the best business men of the south, most
ly residing in the city of New Orleans, and
the general organization of the exposition is
placed under the charge of Major E. A.
• Burke, a man of great ability a3 director
The exposition will he opened on the 11th
of December next, and continue six months.
Congress by a recent act has loaned it
51.000,000, conditioned on the raisins of the
same amount by the board of management.
All the states and territories of the Union but
two, and many foreign governments have
already applied for space for collective ex
hibits, and the president by an executive or
der dated April 9, ISS4, "has directed the
several departments of the government to
contribute exhibits as they did at the Phila
delphia centennial, estimates for expenses
of which are being made by the heads of de
partments and will be immediately submitted
to congress for the necessary appropriations.
The Mexican government has appropriated
$200,000 for the displays of that country,and
has reserved five acres of space to be occu
pied for garden purposes. Many of the states
and counties of tropical and semi-tropical
climates will exhibit their fruits and other
horticultural productions by extensive gar
dens, showing their fruits, flowers, plants
and ' trees in their growing condition, and
plans are being considered for exhibiting
lines in the northern flowers in the same
manner. In fact the horticultural
plans are on the grandest scale ever at
tempted at any exposition in any country of
The exposition is located in an extensive
park near the river, three miles above the
business center of New Orleans. In the
main inclosure there will be about three
hundred acres of ground occupied by the
buildings, gardens and.stock arenas. The
buildings alone will cover over thirty acres
of ground space.
A force of six hundred men is now em
ployed on the erection of the buildings and
the preparation of the grounds and this force
will be Immediately increased, now that the
participation of the whole world is assured by
the liberal patronage of buyers and the hearty
support which Director General Burke lius
secured from the president, the beads of de
partments and the governors and commis
sioners of the states and territories. At a
meeting of these commissioners, recently
held in Washington, on the call of the direc
tor general, to confer with each other and
with the representatives of the de
partment board organized under the
order of the president, twenty-eight states
ami territories were, represented in person
by their commission rs, and all the others by
letter, cordially sustaining the exposition.
Plans were discussed and agreed upon in de
tail as to the collection and display of collec
tive exhibits, all of which will be immediate
ly printed for general distribution, together
with the names and postoffice address of the
commissioners of all the states'and territories
and the members of the department board of
In regard to the Minnesota exhibits, the
intention of the state board of management
is to make them as complete and as credita
ble as possible. Minnesota will not, in this
regard, be left behind what any state In the
Union did at the Centennial at Philadelphia.
Every State association, agricultural, horticul
tural, or in any way representing the indus
tries of the state will be invited to take a
proper part. Our state educational institu
tions will be represented; our manufacturing
and milling interests; our railroad depart
ment; our land system; our ten thousand
lakes in their attractions as pleasure resorts;
our botany; our geology; our entomology;
our birds, lishes, and animals,
etc.; art, industry, resource
and interest of the state will be illustrated
under the management of their best repre
sentatives and experts in collection and ar
rangement. Assurances of the cordial in
terest and support in means and in the
active work are beinir given the commis
sioners and the governor from ever}- quarter
where consultations have been held, and the
work now organized in the state board of
management will be supplemented by auxil
iary aids and vigorously pushed forward in
Whether our exhibits will be grouped with
those of other states, or placed in a separate
building is not yet determined;
but of one thing our people
may count on, wherein they may find the
Miuuesota display when they visit the expo
sition, they will not fail to be welcomed some
where on the grounds,to a state headquarters
in the way of offices and reception rooms,
where they and their friends will be made to
feel at home.
The following documents will be supplied
in a few days to all of our citizens who wish
them: A map of the city of New Orleans; a
situation plan of the exposition park and
buildings for the use of exhibitors
applying for space; blank appli
cations, circulars, regulations, premium
lists, etc. Application may be made to the
commissioner and secretary at Lake City.
As showing the value of expositions of this
kind to state development in wealth and pop
ulation, the following comparative figures as
between Kansas and Minnesota are suggest
ive, Kansas bavins expended 630,000 on her
exhibit at the centennial, aud $10,000 in
printing her report of it, while Minnesota
folded her hands and went to sleep as the
great pageant passed before the t-yes of the
world and allowed herself to be only thought
of at that exposition as one who had nothing
to oiler for the study and admiration of man

Statisticians of both states attribute this
great difference in increase of population
aud wealth to the attitude of the two states
in reference to the centennial displays of
their resources and attractions.
For the information of those who may be
curious to know where the funds are coming
from to defray the expenses of the Minnesota
exhibits, it may be stated that the board of
management of the exposition have gener
ously tendered a donation of §5,000 to each
state aud territory as a nucleus for their ex
hibition fund, and the additional amounts
necessary the state board are assured will be
placed at their disposal from other sources
that will be announced hereafter.

How well the prediction was verified can be

Press now rises to make the assertion that
there will be two hundred handsome and
substantial buildings in East Pierre before
the first of January next; aside from which
will be another railroad, a foundry and ma
chine shop, a factory for the manufacture of
artificial stone, a $30,000 college building, a
wagon shop on a large scalp, a 200-barn-l
steam flouring mill and the largest brewery
in Southern Dakota, connected with which
will be a bottling establishment and soda

and a cemetery association; so Pierre may bj
saved from the reproach of having to bor
row a place to bury her dead. Eastern capital

view to at once erect forty neat cottages in
East Pierre. These cottages when erected
will be for rent or sale on easy payments.
