Wabaah and Missouri racifie CompUea
cittions. ' . • :.:■.
■ :■ ' Just what the outcome is to be of the Wa
bash, St. Louis & Pacific road no one seems
able to state. ■ There is a movement on foot,
% being operated by the stockholders, to • sup
plant the receivers,. Messrs. Tutt and .Hen
> derson. These men, it is stated, were ap-
V pointed at the instance of Jay Gould and the
■ Missouri Pacific road. It was thought that
its separation was a wise move at the time,
but now it looks to them as if the whole af
fair was a sham and a fraud, that no segrega
;■■: tion has taken place, and that the Wabash is
. Btill run in the interest of the Missouri Pa
cific. The receivers have made several at
■;• tempts to get a general manager, but as yet
have failed to get a railroad man of experi
p ence to assume the duties of the post
under the existing state of affairs. The
' Itockholders claim ' that they will make
a move to oust the receivers. The
Missouri Pacific bas*riot paid its employes for
the month of' June. They usually pay the
. first of ' each month, but in June last its
. treasurer at St. Louis was ordered to send
| -every dollar of the earnings of the road to
New York — it is thought to pay a declared
dividend and interest on bonds. They say
- they will pay the 15th; at least it is rumored
■■'■ that they will. A number of the clerical force
| have tendered their resignations in order to
get their money. It is stated that unless
definite information is given them relative to
when they will be paid, a general strike will
take place in the clerical force of the road.
Yesterday the Hon. Thomas C. Reynolds,
: for plaintiff, filed a petition befor the Master
' in ■' Chancery asking permission for the re
ceiver of the Missouri Pacigc to pay certain
Claims, amounting to about $6,000. The
claims arc for trackage and terminal facili
ties/the non-payment of which works great
. hardship upon the road. The petition claims
that the bills are honest and should be paid,
and the payment thereof will redound to the
benefit of the road.
Will the Wabush Default on Its Chicago
It is learned that the Wabash has not yet
paid Its July interest on the bonds of the
Chicago division. It could not be learned
whether a default in the payment of the mi
i rsl on these bonds will be made, but fears
are expressed that the failure to pay the in
tprest thus far means that .such is the inten
tion. it has all along been the opinion that
the interest of the Chicago bonds would
be paid, II having been the impression that
the Chicago Branch was the most profitable
of all the Wabash lines. ■ What Gould's ob
ject etui be in defaulting, as is alleged, on
the Chicago bonds, and thus allowing the
Chicago division to revert back to the or
iginal bondholders, no one is able to under
stand, and the opinion prevails that the in
. terest is being held back by Gould for some
' reason or best known to himself and the
other Wabash magnates, and after he had
gained his object the interest on the Wabash
bonds will be paid.
J'lirrliase of the J'ittuburff, Cleveland &
Toledo bu the Baltimore cC Ohio.
There was some truth after all iv the story
that there was competition between the liulti
jnore <fe Ohio and Vumlerbilt interest for pos
session of the Pittsbiirg, Cleveland A Toledo
railroad, the indorsement of whose paper
brought Commodore C. K. Garrison, ihe
Andrews Bros., of Youngstown, and Mr.
%Vm. McUrery, of Chicago, into unpleasant
Unaucial complications, and resulted in the
Jiicl named gentleman making an assign
ment for the benefit of his creditors. It
is stated on the best of authority that the roud
■was offered to -Mr. Vanderbllt, find Mr. AY.
C. Quiucy went over and Inspected It at
the suggestion of the Lake Shore people.
The Baltimore i*t Ohio people, however, were
■V.ldeawake, and, uot desirlnir to lose so valu
able a liuk in their western connections, im
mediately set about circumventing Mr. Van
derbilt. There was a long consultation in
this city Sunday last among the chief men of
the Pltubdrg A; Western Railroad Cdrnpany
and rr|:rcstmt:itivi's of the Baltimore <V; Ohio,
at which it is supposed the purchase of the
PlUsburg, Cleveland A Toledo road was de
feld< il upon. At any rate, according t>> I pri
dispateh from Baltimore, the sale lms
luki'ii place, th: 1 Baltimore & Ohio being tho
purchaser, aud the papers hire been Blgncd.

mense China trade. No very open demon
strations in thai direction have ever been'
made, and in tact, the scheme was evidently!
intended to be worked out secretly. . That
the road is working for this business is in
yond question. There is high author
ity for this, which is no less than
a well known official of the road. He says
that more than three mouths ago the North
ern Pacific road sent > trusted and confi-
nt! I agent, In whose judgment and
prudence the r. ail eon d rely, to Houg Kong
to see how much business could be : diverted
from the Paeilie Mull Steamship company,
provided an independent line should be es
tablished to run to Portland or Pugct Sound,
in connection with the Northern Pacific
ro»\ The agent in due time returned,
and his report Was laid ' . be
lore the ' • director*, who
regarded II as so favorable that the necessary,
capital » -is raised in London to establish the
line It Is understood that for the presenl
the con. pan. will hue a number of ocean
vessels which «iii be secured bo do duty for a
while till the line becomes a fixture, and it is
asserted thnt the tlrst cargo of tea will be
shipped early next month. It tl claimed
that the route to New York, by the «ny of
Portland and St. Paul will bo much* the
shortest, ami that all tea trade must come by
the new route.

DUCKED BUT NOT DROWNED.
A Four-Oared Shell Broken iv Two by
Collision With a Steamer.
About 7 o'clock last evening, as the steam
er G. B. Knapp was running up the river,
and when above Wabasbaw street bridge, she
Collided with one of the four-oared shells be
longing to the Minnesota boat club. The
steamer struck the. shell before the towers
were aware of their danger, breaking It in
two aruldship, and spilling the crew into the
river. One of them iv particular had a very
narrow escape from drowning, being swept
under the barge which the Knapp was tow
ing, and for a few seconds his life was not
worth A copper. All were final
ly rescued by the people on the
Knapp, however, and the watchers on the
bridge above breathed free again. A repre
sentative of the Globe was among the people
who saw the accident aud undertook to get
to the scene by climbing down the embank
ment above the bridge, but the crew of the
wrecked shell had been taken over to the
boat-house, before he reached the river bank,
and, judging from their bearing and actions,
were none the worse for their impromptu
bath. The great wonder is that all were not
drowned, as the shell was coining along at a
lively gait, aud, having their backs turned to
the Kuapp, the crew were not aware of their
danger until their shell parted under them.
For some reason they did not seem to pay auy
attention to the warning whistle of the
steamer, -or the shouts of those who saw and
realized their danger: presumably they did
not hear the warnings, or if they did they
evidently did not think they were meant for
themselves. The members of the boat club
practice every evening for an hour or two,
but the wrecked shell was the only oue on
that part of the river at the time of the acci
dent last evening; nor were those in the club
house aware of the imminent danger in
which their comrades had been until all were
safely on board the Kuapp, together with one
part of their boat. The other half went down
with the current but was recovered a little
later by the barge belonging to the club.
Owing to the difficulty of getting down to the
club house by others than members, the names
of the rescued scullers were not learned.
Their narrow escape, it is to be hoped, will
•serve as a lasting warning to scullers to be
slightly more circumspect while rowing -in
the waters usually taken by steamers plying
the river, and while the Globe congratulates
them on being still in the land of the base
ball, it would remind them that i paper
shell can't buck against a lumber barge,
"nohow you fix it."

St. Patl, Minn., July 7, 1884.
To the Honorable Board of Education :
The undersigned, to whom was referred
the matter of heating the new Neill school
building, begs leave to report that he has
carefully considered the matter, having
written letters to several parties iv this and
other states, asking for information about
the Ruttan system of heating and ventilation.
The replies received were uniformly favor
able and the commendations all that could
be desired, not only that it was more health
ful and economical, but also that there was
no objection that could be urged against it
by the use of soft coal. And I will state that
it is my opinion that the Ruttan system
would give perfect satisfaction if once intro
duced into our schools. When, however,
the residents in the neighborhood of the new
building heard that the board proposed to in
troduce a system of heating, using soft coal,
they prepared and presented your Committee
with a paper In which they protested iv the
strongest terms against its use. I invited
the gentlemen to listen to the testimony in
mv possession, and as they were not con
vinced that soft coal would not be a nui
sance, I assured them that in deference to
their wishes I would not report favorably on
the Ruttan furnace. Of the other furnaces
upon which bids were made at the time, I
tvould recommend that the bid of Prendc.r
gast Bros, be accepted, with the distinct un
derstanding that Xo. 15S furnaces be used
instead of No. 158, at same price. This is
a larger furnace than first bid for, and in my
opinion will do much better service. Re

[Special correspondence of the Globe. |
July 8. — The community was startled this
morning by the announcement of the death
last night from inflammation of the bowels
of Paul C. Sletten, receiver of the Crookston
land oflice. The deceased, a native of Nor
way, was appointed to the oflice which he
held np to the time of his death, by President
('rant, through the influence of the notorious
Bill King, who, although elected, failed to
appear on his seat in congress, urgent busi
ness requiring his presence in Canada dur
ing the Pacific Mail investigations. King,
it will be remembered, in order to make
place for his protege, whose claim to favor
consisted in his ability to deliver the Scan
dinavian vote, procured the removal of Judge
R. Reynolds, whose only offense was his re
fusal to support the transactions of King.
Paul Sletten was pre-eminently the leader
of the Scandinavian element of our popula
tion, wielding an influence among his coun
trymen that compelled him to be recognized
as a powerful factor in the polities of this
district. Positive and uncompromising in
the opinions of his faction, practical, thor
ough aud aggressive in his methods, he de
voted all the. energies of his vigorous and
persistent nature to the attainment of his
object. The deceased was about 45 years of
age. and leaves a wife and three children iv
comfortable circumstances. A host of mourn
ing countrymen feel that they have lost a
leader whose place cannot be filled, and
Knute Nelson will hardly be able to obtain
the services of another 60 valuable a hench

Intense excitement prevails at Red Lake
Falls over recent developments in the op
erations of Tortj. Collin, who some months
ago secured an interest in Kretzschmar's ad
dition to that booming bonanza. Yesterday,
an attorney claiming to represent eastern
capitalists appeared in the village to take
possession of the property which his princi
pals had purchased from Coffin, and stopped
work upon the new railroad to St. Hiluire..
As Kretz.«chmar had no intimation of the al
leged sale, and has never realized any cash
from the transfer of his interest to the com
pany, of which Coffin Is the head he is com
pletely "knocked out," believing that he Is
the victim of misplaced confidence, has lost
about $00,000, and that his proud hopes for
the future are dashed to the ground.
The representative of the purchasers met
a very warm reception at the bands of the
good people of Red Lake Falls, and
the laborers upon their little railroad will not
consent to his leaving their midst until their
wages are paid. Threats of violence, riot
and bloodshed arc rife, and Sheriff Zwlckey
has gone to the scene of action. It will be a
very cold day when the wily Tom. Coffin

Orano Fork*, D. T., July 10.— In the
Ward murder trial to-day the forenoon was
occupied by counsel for defence in an ar
gument against the admission of a certain
deposition made by Lair shortly after the tra

VanArraan had consumed considerable time
in argument, the judge admitted the evi
dence, which i% considered bad for Lair.
Dr. Lane, who attended the corner's inquest
after the murder, was then called and de
scribed the nature of the wounds and stated
that the necessary consequence of the
wound was fatal. Some of the clothing of the

Gov. Virtue's Dilfttlma.
Some of the papers lire trying to borrow
trouble for the new governor in the way in
dicated by the Black Hills Journal in the fol
lowing extract. It is learned, however, from
Bismarck, that it is a needless apprehension
— that when the new executive conies there
and announces that it is the capital, there
will be a spasmodic kick or two about Yank
ton, but all will acquiesce and every member
of tbe legislature will come to Bismarck.
Says the JwrndL:
"Will the legislature meet in Bismarck or
in YanktouT The members elected in the
YauktOn country will certainly not go to
North Dakota, and it is just as certain that
member.-, elected in certain parts of North
Dakota will not £o to Yanklon. It would
«eem extremely probable in this ease that we
will have the interesting spectacle of two
legislatures In session in the territory at one
anil the same time. There is no reason .to
suppose that tin: animosity of one section
against the other will be overcome to such a
degree that any compromise between the
representatives of both can be accomplished.
The war will proably be carried on,
each legislature (go-called will pass bills, and
the governor, whoever he may be, will be
called upon to . sign, veto, or ignore " them,
as in his jungment may seem best And
here again Will conic another matter for the
new governor to decide. Yankton claims to 1
hold by right the seat of government. Bis
marck also claims it. The Dew governor will
take his choice betwoen the two, and unless
we are far astray In our prediction, will go to
Bismarck. This will be cause sufficient for
some of the south Dakota newspapers to de
clare was against him". Should he, contrary
to our expectation e, decide to locate at Yank
ton, he will Incur hostility fully as bitter
from north Dakota. No matter which side
he may take, or how sure hi« motives, ill - a
ehojt time after he takes his seat as governor
lie will be branded as a knave."

yiin-ICfti'lfnt Ltinrt Oirntr*.
The Vermiilion Plain Talk is one of a large
number of prominent papers that believe
that land* should only be given to those who
will become permanent settlers on them. 'It
represents a growing sentiment in this. It
may be argued that the repeal of the tree
culture and pre-emption laws will prevent
actual bvnnjUle settlers from getting what
land they heed; but there is little good sense
in such talk. If it in held only for the pu'r
pott of speculation then there in ay be some
thing; in it. But the intention of the laws
relating to the settlement of public land* was
not to furnish trading stock for the public,
but to give every citizen who wanted a home
a chance to earn it and. prove ; by his labor
that he ■': was worthy a borne. Past
experience Lai shown clearly that
one hundred and sixty aeren of land
well tended,is worth twice aa much as slight' j
worked. Since it Is the puruoso of the lawa
to give the land for cultivation and not for
speculation there need be no complaint fri/ra
this source. The public land that is taken
in Dakota in the future will be utilized t<y
men who mean to stay with their laud, make
permanent homes and develope the country.
This is what we want. Non-re3ldent land
owners are undesirable. They imM |

beneficiaries of the labor and industry of
those around their unworked po*»' -
While they never turn a hand to improve
their holdings, the labor of those around
ttiem develops the country, makes Vt
more valuable and with tin., rise the unworked
land of the shark takes its place filching its
advance from the industry of others.
