The Canadian Pacific, the Canadian
Government and Manitoba
Some Information Regarding the Ramsey
County Gravity Railway.
A Pious liailroad.
The Candian Pacific railroad is one one of
the most pious and conscientious institu
tions, probably, in the known world outside
of the regular Sabbath school organization.
There is something unique, as well as beau
tiful in its snow white sensitiveness to the
fear even of committing sin. Its refined
delicacy in this matter surpasses that of the
vestal virgin. Upon this pious road the
wicked sinner and the hypocritical saint can
have no effect whatever. It knows long be
fore hand of the approach of sin, and like a
pure saint, gently but firmly wafts it aside
when it approaches. One single example is
•ufliciont to show how super-fine the religious
principle is as it is developed i-n the soul of
this pious corporation. It is especially
fine this season and has on its whitest robes
of purity. The lilies of the valley are im
pure and indelicate compared to it. For a
long time the Canadian Faci"e has been pay
ing customs' officers for overtime at St. Vin
cent, but now that the line is completed to
Thunder Bay and the lake is open, the Cana
dian Pacific road has discovered that it is
"immoral and sinful, and wrong" to do it
any longer. In a recent interview, that
great liiicu priest of tlie Canadian Pacific, Mr.
\V. C. Vhu Home, general manager of the
'The Canadian Pacific had determined
that the payment of customs' officers for
overtime by the Canadian Pacific was im
moral mid sinful and wrong."
The conversion Is rather suddenj as well
as late, but all were rejoiced that it has come
at last, and nil will hope that the reformation
may be general and that large numbers of
the Kauucke nuiy be gathered into the king
HOW IT AFFECTS THE CANADIANS.
Tin- refue inadlan Pacific road to
paj the custo ms officers extra fora little work
is not satisfactory to the business men of
aipeg. These worldly merchants take a
wicked view of the matter as will appear
from the Interview of a Winnipeg Times re
porter in that paper of the 28th inst. :
A Times representative yesterday waited
Mr. John Persse, agent of the Great
m Fast Freight line, to ascertain his
rtews upon the subject.
•'Can you give me the names of some of
the merchants whose goods have been de
tained at St. Vincent and the number of
clays tocome to Winnipeg?" asked the quill
"Yes, here they are: Lvon, McKenzie &
Co., six days: Sutherland & Co., six; Tur
ner, McKeand & Co., eight; Mulholland
Bros., eight; Lewis Am eight; Aid. Drew- .
ry, eight; Porter & Ronald, ten; Griilin &
Douglas, seven ; Ames, Holden & Co., six;
Thompson, Codville& Co., ten; Hodgson,
Bumncr& Co., six; Bunnatyne & Co., six;
Bell Bros., five: Snowdon Bros., five, and a
host of others.
. "How long has this detention of business
.been going on?"
"Since about the first of June. It has
. been causing considerable trouble to mer
chants and others in the city. Having ship
ped freight by the all-rail route they expect
to get it here in proper time and there should
not be any unncssary delay."
"What is the cause of this delay?"
"It Beems to me the C. P. R. are doing it
for the purpose of blindfolding the merchants
and make them believe the delay is on ac
count of their shipping it by all-rail route as
tiny (the ('. P. R.) wish to force all freight
over their own line, via Port Arthur. This is
the primary cause."
"What do the merchants think of it?"
"I have talked with several of them over
the matter and they feel greatly annoyed
about this unnecessary delay. They are all
convinced it is being done for the purpose
which I have mentioned. It will not have
any effect upon them in ordering future
shipments ■as the C. P. R. arc only
common carriers and must bring in freight
In proper time, otherwise the all ' rail route
will be compelled to follow out fUI arrange
ment wbf lC j] the eastern railway men had in
view J'j 8 t spring, and thai is to run a line of
" :l ' .s from si. Vincent to Winnipeg. If this
Wjre done the freight would arrive in Winni
peg the day Following its reaching the boun
dary." " ;f
[Winnipeg Sun, June 29th.]
A number of merchants were asked this
morning their opinion of the difficulty. They
irere unanimous in condemnation of t.'ne
government or customs department, which
?ver was responsible for the course the 1/itter
was taking. The opinion was expresses that
the work Imposed on tin- officers was sn light
that they could very well attend to all the
business without any serious inconvenience
to themselves and without being overworked.
They all believed any serious delay as would
follow the carrying out of the threat would
not be tolerated by the public. The opinions
expressed were general and were so much
alike that only a few of then are given.
Mr. A. Pearson said the sduties5 duties were such
that they could be easily executed by the
officers and they would not have to work
nearly as hard as ordinary clerks even then.
Be thought it a shams that the government
would attempt to withdraw the meagre"
enough service that had been given the
public. The public should not be allowed to
suiter no matter what was done. The
officers ought to have some "come and go"
In them. Their hours should not be defin
.•Postmaster Hargrave stated to a gentle
man during a conversation about the mat
ter, that ii ho carried out the same princi
ple as Mr. Norquav was seeking to do mat
ters about the postoffiee would be in a cu
rious state. The hours in the postolllce
won- the same as those adopted ; .n the cus
tom house, but in order to ficeoinmadate
the public he arranged the irork so that
tome clerks work late at night and early in
the morning, while others York during the
day. In this manner tli.- work was per
formed without any grumbling and to the
, satisfaction of the public.
Mr. K. D. Richardson said it would not
affect him, but the principle was a very, bad
oue, and it was a shame for the customs ile
partment to Insist on adhering rigidly to
their alleged rights in tho matter. Officers
ought to be ready for trains. .t ail times, even
if the staff had to be increat !.
The real reason for refusing to pay the
customs officers any longer, for over time Is,
as is intimated in the abc.vc Interviews, for
t!i? purpose of forcing business over the
Canadian Pacific to Port, Arthur, and across
the lake to Montreal. This is done on the
fcround of. ■■ "'iv. Possibly when the
winter sets In. and the lake I* closed, that
the.!?ov*>rnm.-ut •>•; the United States and
tlie. St. Paul & Manitoba road may have an
cooziomical streaji and stop the pay of the
officers of the customs on this side of the
line. Then the people of Winnipeg may
find that this is a kind of tuVipt-tal busi
ness. If Wiuuip* oau Island it the United

Eastost, July 1. — E mployes of the Jersey
Ceutral railroad are discouraged on account
of ioe discontinuance of the payment of

Dakota division of the Milwaukee & St. Paul
All the trainmen on the New York Central
have recently been uniformed. The total
number of uniforms required for the train
men of the company was 2,000. Their mak
ing necessitated the employment of 2,500
hands, while 7,000 yards of indigo-blue Ker
sey cloth and 30,000 buttons were utilized.
The Union Pacific railroad will hereafter
run its train No. 3, leaving Omaha about
noon, and train No. 4, arriving there at 4
o'clock in the afternoon, between Omaha
and Cheyenne only, instead of between
Omaha and Ogden. The overland trains
leaving Omaha in the evening and arriving

will be discontinued west of Brookville, Kas.
The company has discharged about 600 men
from its shops in Omaha, and is pursuing the
policy of retrenchment'in other quarters.
On Monday another meeting of the North
western roads was held, at which all the
roads interested in the lowa and Upper
Mississippi River business were represented,
to try to settle the difficulties regarding the
Upper Mississippi River traffic, which were
aa serious a matter as the troubles
regarding the cutting of rates by the
Washburn route. The roads represented at
the meeting were the Northwestern, Rock

An ordinance in regard to the street rail
way was read providing as follows:
Section 1. — In consideration of accepting
the ordinance the Street Railway company
was authorized to lay a double track on Jack
son street from Fourth to Thirteenth street.
Sec. 2. — That the company at its own cost
and expense, shall replace and repair to the
acceptance of the city 6O much of the wooden
block pavement now laid on Jackson street
as may_ have to be torn up or interfered
with 'in laying the double track
aforesaid, and shall take up the
cobble stone between the rails of its
tracks and switches now laid on said street
between Seventh and Fourth streets, and re
place them with cedar blocks ; to pave Jack
son streot^from Niuth tojThirteenth at its own
cost and expense between the rails and be
tween its tracks, wherever the council shall,
order that part of Jackson street between
Ninth and Thirteenth streets paved, and in
the same manner and with like material as
the council shall order for the other part of
the street; to pay the cost of paving Fourth
street between the rails from the Seven cor
ners to Jackson street, wheae the paving is
ordered by the board of public works.
Sec. 3 No ordinance of the city of St.
Paul heretofore passed and now in force re
lating to tha street railway company shall be
impaired by anything heroin contained,
and everything granted in this ordinance is
subject to such ordinance.
Aid. Dowlan did not understand the or
dinance. It was wholly new to him, and he
wanted it to go to the committee on ordin
ances so that it could be looked into and that
the council might have an opportunity to see
if the rights of the city were properly pro
Aid. Cornish took the same view. The
street railway people knew just what they
wanted and went straight to work to get it.
He wanted an opportunity to examine the
ordinance and see that the city had its rights.
Whenever the street railway gets the city at
a disadvantage it keeps that advantage. He
had not heard before of this ordinance, and
did not know that any new contract was to
be made with the street railway company.
Mr. Murray explained that he and the
board of public works, or some of the mem
bers of it, had had an interview with Mr.
Lowry, and he assured the council that the
ordinance was all right.

BREAK NECK RACES,
Trials of Speed in Which Men, Wom
en and Horses Risk their Lives.
Three times around the hippodrome track
of Forepaugh's circus measures exactly one
half mile, and that is the length of the races
that are contested upon it. Speaking of the
races last night, one of the agents of the
show said; "They are unquestionably one
of the most popular and pleasing features of
the exhibition, but the people who shout and
grow excited over them rarely
appreciate the dangers attending such
trials of speed. So many people have been
killed and maimed in them and so many
horses have been lost that Mr. Forepaugh
has frequently thought of stopping them and
introducing something less dangerous."
"Do many accidents occur?"
"Well, I should say so," replied the agent.
"Not of course in the camel and elephant
and wheelbarrow, and pony and monkey
races, but in the dozen contests in which
women and men ride and drive horses. The
turns are short for horses going at
full speed and the shouts of the
excited spectators infect the riders and
they risk t'aeir lives to win. In Detroit
Mollie Mayhew was thrown out of a chariot
and hurt so badly that she died before reach
ing the dressing room. Alice Lavelle had
her skull fractured in Port Huron in a hurdle
race, and Miss Pinder had three ribs broken
in a flat race at Elkhart, Indiana. Eight or
nine men and boys have had ribs, arms and
legs broken sinea«i|he show left Philadelphia
in May. The verf first day the show opened
in Chicago, la»t week, Billy Morgan,
one of the best known bareback riders
in America was thrown in a Roman standing
race and so badly hurt that he now lies in a
hospital. In fact, of the thirty-one people
engaged to ride in the hippodrome races,
there is not one — man, woman or boy — that
has not been thrown and hurt more or less
severely during the ten weeks the show has
been upon the road this season. Oh, yes,
horse after horse has been ruined. In Chi
cago last Tuesday night, Kettledrum,
one of the best leaping horses we
had, cost $1,500 ii( Eugland and could
jump twenty clear aud clean — was deceived
by the shadow tho lamps made a hurdle
throw and overleaping himself fell and
broke his shoulder. No, the girl who rode
him was not hurt much, but he had to be
"Yes, some of the women have great
pluck. Take Sadie Connolly, for instance.
She is the best chariot driver in this coun
try.. She likes the excitement and the
horses can't carry her around the track
too fast. Whips them from the 6tart
and lets them go lickety-split with a free,
rein. No these isn't a man in the company
that isn't more nervous in a chariot than she
is. Just think of the power of five strong
horses going abreast and whipped at every
stride. Miss Connelly is very lucky though.
She however holds that it is pluck, not luck,
that prevents her from being seriously hurt.
In Buffalo a wheel came off the chariot when
the horses ware running like wild. She
turned a pirouette in the air, came down on
her head and shoulders in the track and was
dragged a hundred yards because she would
not drop the lines. Tbat's the kind of a girl

There will be seen in the parade of Adam

beasts, open dens of lions and tigers: an
open den of monster serpents, with Mala

magnificent street pageant than any show in

He will not be exhibited in the parade.

To the Editor of- the Globe : ,' . j
The younger men of the Democratic party
must be considered. There, for instance, is
j ilr. W. C. Whitney, some '■ time corporation
counsel of New York and chairman of the
New York delegation to Cincinnati in 1880.
He is a Yankee by birth, an Ohio man by al
liance, and an able, stainless statesman.
Men who are voting this year who I were not
up to know those who battled in the party a
third of a ceutury ago, and it may not be well
to present to them a man of to-day. The in
dependent cranks may not be worth consid- |
ering, but»if"tbey are, perhaps a hook baited
with Mr. Whitney may catch them.
New York baa many able men to present;
it is possible that Mr. Whitney is "tbe boy"
that would please all and antagonize none.

have the pleasure of listening to a five-act

I cau't say as there is much of a novelty in
hearing home talent, but the play was writ

and it will draw a big house. Besides being
written at home and played by homo talent,
the stage dfrection is under the management
of a resident of this city who has had con
siderable experience in putting new plays
on the board, and the success of toe "Goth

The celebration next Friday promises to
be the erandest ever held in south Dakota.

favorable for securing two more teams, the

Between 300 and 400 of the leading farm
ers of this county, representing every town
ship in the county, met at the courthouse
Saturday afternoon, to perfect an organiza
tion for the betterment -jf their interests
and to break the yoke which has been hung
about their necks for years by the
Pettigrew crowd. These farmers have
been making and beautifying their homes
the past years, while .the politicians have
preyed upon their interests in such manner
that forbearance has ceased to be a virtue.
There is a sinking fund in this county of
$40,000 which has been taken out of the
farmers by enormous taxes, and no use for
the money raised. The county has a heavy
bonded indebtedness which is not due for
several years; the buying of grain has been
in the hands of a ring, and the railroads have
taken the farmers' last nickel of profits,
while the politicians, backed by Pettigrew
and bis strikers, have stood to one ,' side
and sweetly said to them : "Oh, that is all
right; you vote for our men and your wrongs
shall be righted." This has been going on
for years, and not until last-fall did the tillers j
of the soil dare to rise in their might, when
they sat down upon that obnoxious constitu
tion to the tune of 600 majority. Since then
the farmers have been clamorous, but not j
until last Saturday had they the courage to j
get together. I herewith send, condensed,'
the proceedings of the meeting:

by W. 8. Jones, and '■ Win. Beckler was

farmers' interests and equalization of tax
ation, and to wipe out the politicians and'
corrupt legislation. Addresses were made
by several prominent fanners representing, !
the different townships of the. county. The'
newspaper men were then called for for ad
dresses, to which they responded, and at the
suggestion of W. '3. Wynn, of the Ar'jm, an

Away to the north and northwest to the
British boundary line extends a country al
together unorganized and generally unJer
stood to be infested with horse thie ves. We
propose to fight them as the Indians were
fought in the early days. The only way to
stop horse thieving on the frontier is to hang
half a dozen thieves. It would be as un
profitable as it is dangerous to attempt to
take them alive and give them a trial, for
they have wealthy and unscrupulous friends
who would release them from the grip of
the law. Summary measures have been
found necessary in other iocalities for the
suppression of borse thieving and they will
be resorted to in McLean county as long as
the necessity for them exists,and scoundrels
of the O'Neil stripe should not forget it.
In regard to the man whom the coroner's
inquest could not determine whether he
hung himself or accidentally caught his hair,
like Absalom, in the branches, the Times
says: "Tom O'Neil was a 'tough looking'
man, of about thirty-five years of age, who
had proven himself a thoroughly conscience

been known as a horse thief. Too mean
and degradad iv his nature to seek a liveli
hood by honorable means, he chose to prey
upon the substance which the honest had ac
cumulated by hard work. He had no con

There are signs of trouble for the new gov

pect of brisk zephyrs. The Republicans are
begiuing to suspect that the appointment of
one of the most? vehement dirt throwers at
Mr. Blalne, upon the endorsement of Dele
gate Raymond, in case of the election of Mr.
Blame, will not give the delegate a desirable
standing with the administration. The rec
ord of Mr. Pierce in this matter, it is inti
mated, will be made exceedingly perspicuous
to the men who are near the throne if
filled by the Maine statesman, and th»:y will
not forget that after Delegate Raymond had
seen the- Huron convention instruct for
Blame, he went to Chicago and spread him
self to hear the choice of his constituents
and'sweat and drank for Arthur. Pierce has
been for six months shoveling taffy on Ar

matter and doubt Whether it will do to send

Ho Tells tho Springer Committee His*
Star Route Story.
Washington, July 1. — Ex-Senator Kellogg
at his own request appeared before the
Springer committee to-day to make a state
ment relative to his connection with the
star routes. He said:
"A number of witnesses before this com
mittee have been dwelling, on my indict
ment as an offense involving bribery. There
is no charge that I paid Brady any money
whatever. I utterly deny telling Walsh to
put one-half of a certain amount to my
credit and one-half to Brady. Reference
has been ' made to my having secured
an increase oh two routes. If
Brady was called and should
swear to the truth, as I believe he would. I
believe lie would swear that I never ap
proached him directly or indirectly, as re
gards these expeditious. .No where does
Price state that I suid I would go to Brady
and procure additional services, or that it
would be procured by my service. I will
give you the names of four or five gentle
men to whom Price has said I had nothing
to do with securing service."
Kellogg referred to the alleged payment to
him by Walsh and one-half to Price drafts
and notes amounting to $10,000. He said
Walsh had Importuned him to aid in prose
cuting bis claim against Brady, but be
had not rendered aid. He said further
he did not receive money from drafts or
notes as charged. Walsh, he testified, had
borrowed $0,000 from him In New Orleans
iv 1875. The money be received from
Walsh grew out of his business transaction
and was in no way connected with the star
route service or political matters.
Kellogg showed, by documentary evidence
and by affidavits, that he did not tender
service. lie offered the committee copies
of all letters written by him to Walsh and
offered to explain them fully. Also all
checks and business transactions. He had
a large number of affidavits from different
parties showing the existing indebtedness
by Walsh to him, and certificates from banks
showing how and for what purpose the pay
ments by Walsh were made.
