BOGUS RAIL NEWS.
The Pioneer Press Exposed in Its Man
ufacture of Falsehoods.
The Fargo Southern Not a Disturbing Ele
ment in Northwest Bates.
The Fargo Southern.
The Minneapolis paper published in St.. Paul
Is making itself ridiculous in Its efforts to bring
the Fargo Southern road into prominence before
the people. This is a new road, just about be
ing started, of no special prominence ahd so far*
as present indications are concerned it is not
likely to grow into any unusual prominence, at
any rate for a while. For some reason however,
the paper spoken of is engaged in trying to
swell the importance of the road in such a way
and to such an extent as to have a tendency to
bring the road into contempt. That paper
yesterday morning had a long nrticle
letting forth that the Northern Pacific €1111 the
St. Paul & Manitoba were greatly worried at the
success of the Fargo Southern, and had finally
concluded that something must be done, and an
effort was therefore made to induce the Fargo
Southern to come Into a pooling arrangement,
Which the latter refused to accede to. The arti
tle referred to contaius the following state
A meeting was held yesterday of the freight
representatives ot the Manitoba and Korthern
Pacific, and the rates to all points between Min
neapolis and St. Paul and Fargo were reduced
from one to two cents lower than the estab
lished tariff. The new rates will go into effect
In a few days, and by this means these two roads
hope to regain what has been taken away from
them by the Fargo Southern.
The above Is a square, up and down falsehood.
No meeting was held between the freight repre
tatives of the Manitoba and Northern Pacific
roads, on Monday. On Monday Mr. Ilannaford,
general freight agent of the Northern Pacific
left at noon for Chicago, and Mr. Mohler, gen
eral agent of the St. Paul & Manitoba road, left
With the St. Paul Jobbers at
7 o'clock Monday morning. Tho only
person connected with the freight department
wo was Mr. Alexander, general traffic
•of the Manitoba road. He nays that v.a

Iffutothi tbeni, and the latter will go
by them So far as the Manitoba people aud
the Northern Pacific arc concerned
matters are in a satisfactory shape, and there is
no occasion for any disagreement between the
roads. The Chicago, Milwaukee & Bt. Paul road
proposes t<> deliver all freight for local point- on
the St. Pan] .v Manitoba at the Minnesota Trans
fer, and not at Fargo, and all for Fargo will be
delivered here. This being the cr.se there seems
to be no occasion for any feeling <>r trouble. No
meeting has bean held. No freight rates have
been reduced, and there is no trouble expected.
The statement of the same (alsifyng sheet that
"an agent of the Manitoba has been up at Fargo
looking over aU the freight bills of the Fargo
Southern he could reach, for the purpose of
pit king a quarrel," is declared to be wholly false
and without any ground whatever.

Monsijrnor Capel's Lecture,
Last night a large and attentive audience were
at the cathedral to hear the third of a coarse of
conferences given this week by Monsignor Capel
On opening the monsignor referred to a few ar
gument* in his but night's discourse.
To night he wished to lay before us that the
church was the only organization that had the
right to teach the doctrine of Christ, and that
aha has always maUMlned the oame body as that
which God gave her at birth but that she has
changed only in the members of that body. As
the growth of the church Increased in body so
have the members enlarged. He explained that
the church of Christ ivas the body of Christ and
that He is at the head. The monsjguor con
tinued by stating that Christ gave four powers to
Peter more than to any of the others. He was
the rock, the holder of the keys, the head and
ruler and the conftrmer of his brethren. So it
being understood they had a leader and were to
abide by his decision, that the Holy Christ dwelt
with him, and that he would be with
them even to the consummation of the world.
The church always having maintained the per
sonality which God gave her is really and essen
tially the same and unchanged babe Into which
God breathing his Holy Spirit, but with the one
destination that the child has grown in size
though not in doctrine.
in dosing, the monsignor said that in to-mor
row night's discussion he would explain why
and by what right the church exacted obedience
frcm her children.

MINNESOTA CROPS FOR 1881.
Cheerful Outlook All Ar0und—1.2,250,
-000 Bushels of Wheat.
U. S. Department of Agriculture, )
Office of State Statistical Aoent, S-
St. Paul, Minn., August 4, 1684. )
The weather of the past month has been favor
able for crops generally. The average tempera
ture was somewhat lower than that of our ordin
ary July weather, though not without excessively
warm intervals of short duration. There
have been frequent local storms, but
for the most part the rainfalls were light, and in
some neighborhoods of limited extent, hardly
sufficient to maintain the pasturage. During the
closing half of the month a number of severe
thunder storms have occurred, occasionally
accompanied with high winds, by which the
grain Was blown down, and, in four or five in
stances, hail enough fell to cause serious dam
age. Happily, however, the districts thus af
fected Were of so small extent that the loss is
insignificant when compared wiLh the total culti
vated area of the state.
Local correspondents, from nearly all parts of
the state, not only speak of the crops as being
excellent, but say that they are the best they
have ever known. Corn is especially flourishing
and fully three weeks ahead of what tbe crop of
last year was ut this date. Wheat is all of eight
per cent, better than that of 1883. Oats, rye
and barley are likewise considerably above aver
age, and the two former even better than the
crops of last year.
in some neighborhoods wheat has suffered
slightly from rust, and smut -in the "Lost Na
tion" variety is complained of in two of the cen
tral western counties. Several correspondents
mention that oats have suffered slightly fiom
blight Barley is reported by a few to be dis
colored by rains. Rye and barley are, for the
most part, harvested throughout the state ; and,
except it, the northwestoru counties, wheat and
oats harvests are now in progress.
Timothy hay is reported higher than average.
It was saved in good condition. Clover seems
to be above average in quality. A few corres
pondents report the averages per acre, which
indicate a yield of about two and three-quarters
tons. Apples and grapes are reported better
than last year, when they were damaged by late
spriug frosts; but they still fall short of good
average conditions for the season.
Sorghum (early amber), while much more for
ward than on August 1, 1883, is not fully up to
wtiat it usually is at this date. Buckwheat is
also inferior to the average coudition, though
considerably ahead of what it was a year ago.
On dry sandy land potatoes are reported as above
aveiageexcelleiue, but on flat lands and on
heavier soils they are not so good. The latter
circumstance, together with the unusual preva
lence of bugs reduce the reported condition below
the ordinary average.
The following is the condensed report of of the
conditions of the crops as compared with those
of 1883. One hundred Indicates equality, and
below oj above that number inferiority or su
periority as the case may be, viz :

Estimating on the reports received for this
month and from extensive inquiries from others
than the fiscal correspondents of this office, the
statement that Minnesota's yield of wheat this
year will not fall below forty-two and a
quarter millions bushels is certainly nogsxagger

were fined only ten bills each.
There was another quartette before the court j

two gem' men of color, in the course of which
one gem'mn whipped out a knife and spilled a '

Dan Taylor, a talL, tony looking darkey, and ;
Frank Cozens, a man of con
siderable nerve. They got into a
dispute about 9 o'clock, during which Taylor
drew a knife and stabbed Cozens in the left arm,
inflicting an ugly wound. The cut was dressed
by Dr. Ritchie who pronounced it not dangerous.
Taylor tried to make his escape and he started to

Seen Around the City.
In passing along Main street in this city a
stranger is not very favorably impressed, as the
buildings are of such various heights and sizes
end no one would suppose in looking at seme of
tbe unpretentious fronts that stocks of goods
were to be found within that would put to blush
many cities of five times the size of this. Since
coming to tbe city we have been unable through
press of work to get around much and see what
kind cf a city we had, but having got started we
will quietly have a look at the several business
SIV TOUK DKT SOOD3 EWPOBIC*.
The first place visited was tbe establishment of
Louis Albenbers, which he has named the New
York Dry Goods Emporium. We find a store
over 120 feet long, and filled to repletion with
all kinds of dry goods for ladies, and on ascend
ing the eievator we find another floor, the front
of which is devoted to millinery and the rear and
center parts to carpets of endless variety. On
this floor we also and that Mr. Aibenberg is at
tending to the comfort of his young men, all his
male employes being furnished with first class
rooms, with everything homelike, so that in
steml of spending their hours of leisure outside,
they spend them profitably at home. In case of
fire much more property could be saved than if
they roomed away from the building. The ar
rangement of all departments is most complete.
The electric light shows well at night here.
THE CHICAGO HOUSE.
Directly opposite, in the Grand Opera block
we found another monster establishment, that of
Ludway Kflhn. who has his deep store full of all
kinds of dry goods, carpets, etc., basement, main
floor and upstairs being all equally packed. He
has his store arranged with an elevated cash
carried, which enables the clerk to attend to his
customers without the annoyance of cosh boys or
girls jostling against those trading. The store is
rather narrow but Its great length may make it
look more so than it really Is. The goods are
tastfully arranged, and show to the best advan
tage. In this establishment as well as in Mr.
Albenberg's, low shelving for tbe goods have
been put in, and it is a decided improvement
over the older methods, as stretching to get down
goods from high shelves is" most detrimental to
health. It is finely lighted with the electric
THE 99 CENT STORE.
Immediately south of J. W. Kahn's establish
ment we found J. W. and R. S. Parkin's 99 cent
store, who carry a large stock of crockery,
glassware, notions, etc. The store is nicely ar
ranged, the center being well calculated to
show lamps and such class of goods to the best
advantage. Shelves, counters, Inside and out,
as well as parts of the floor are all utilized to
exhibit the goods be has. He would have hard
work to get any more in, although the store is a
goodly sized one.
the ladies bazai;
We al»b visited the Ladies Bazar at 210 and
21-2 south M um street. This is another large
store, and what it lacks in length it makes up in
width, bethg a double store joining by arch ways.
Everything of ladies wear can be got here. In
tnis establishment are the unique window dress
ing, with flags aud portraits of the candidates
for tbe presidential campaign. The establish
ment is complete in every department. A. G.
Sebutlinger, & Co., are the proprierors.
We will continue our peregrinations as time
will permit, and we will show that Stillwater is
able to supply everything that may lie required
by the thinking people of this country.
