agbt, and their frescoed mugs bore graphic
testimony of the encounter. The tattle was
waged near the Hotel Ryan, aud a full ac
count of the affair appeared in yesterday's
issue of the GLOW. Both men bad been
loaded with budge, and during the row Dan
pulled * a gun on bis namesake '.
and whacked him on the bead.
Yesterday their faces looked as picturesque

and were fined ten bills eacb, lor their dis

John Gray, an old man, was charged with
calling Margaret Greenwood, a Frenchwo
man with black eyes and a temper of her

he hiid threatened to break her head, but the
evidence showed that both parties were to

To the schools of Minnesota, .Superintendent
The announcement of the World's exposi
tion at New Orleans has come to us so re-
cently that we have hardly bad time to i
thoroughly comprehend its importance, and .
still less to prepare for a fair exhibit of our ,
own educational resources and work.
. I have issued frequent circulars of infor
mation as the plans of the several com it-
tees have matured and have kept you as well
informed as the circumstance, have allowed.
Our exhibit is now well organized and under
way. About fifty institutions, city and
counties, will make contributions. We ahall
have the architecture, apparatus, and school
work of every grade to represent the charac
ter and range of educational work.
Tin; responses have been prompt and the
preparation in general beyond all our expec
tations. . I can assure the friends of educa
tion that Minnesota will be thoroughly repre
sented, and will present satisfactory cvi-
dences of her progress In education.
And now the matter that next requires at-
tention la to encourage our teachers to avail
themselves of this opportunity to see and en-
joy all that is promised in this visit to a
southern latitude in the winter months, to
nee the progress of a free civilization among
the emancipated people, and the progress of
the world's industries in an exposition that
promises to rival the centennial at Phila
In this general interest I shall expend the
money at my disposal, not in salaries, but
In defraying expenses of such of our edu
cators as I can call to my assistance to ar-
range the exhibit and to superintend it dur-
ing the months of its progress.
The time at which most of our teachers
must visit New Orleans will be the holiday
vacation. For this leas. ,ll the executive
com mittee has postponed the state teachers
rssuciation and after consultation with
•jaunty "superintendents I have decided to
pone the meeting of county superintend- I
cuts until tin- year following.
It: view of the importance of this oppor
tunity 1 recommend to boards of education,
that, it desired by their teachers, the holi-
day vacation be extended at] least three
weeks. Tbo cost of a round trip ticket from
St. Paul will be _...">. I shall, with the as-
sistance of those who are on- the ground,
make all possible provision for the comfort
Knd economical living of Minnesota teach-
ers, by establishing headquarters for teach-
ers, and publishing the fullest information
fur their guidance.
As the work of preparation progresses, I
shall keep you informed, even at tke risk of
prof usen ess, for the lime is short and we
have much to do.
In the meantime let mo urge you to ex-
pedition and diligence in the preparation of
whatever is possible in the time fixed.

Petitions from Peter Berkey and others for
a water main ou College avenue, and from

as good a Democrat as he ever was and that
is good enough, and is now quietly engaged

is wholly without provocation and

And Gives a Valuable Exhibit of all the
Banking Business of the State. .
The following facts and figures relative to
banks and banking in Minnesota, are taken
from advance sheets from tbe report of H.
M. Knox, state examiner:
The new law changing the date of termin
ation for the fiscal year of the state from No-
vember 80 to July 81, and also substituting .
biennial for annual reports, has come into
operation since the date of my last report,
which was for the year ending November 80,
ISB2. The statements of condition of the
several banks called for compilation therein
were dated September 30, 1882.
At that time twenty-four banks were re-
ported as in operation under the state laws.

! Merchants' Bank. Wi-
nona, capitalized 5,000.00 * 83,000.00
Net increase . 8125.213.14
Our state laws encourage 'but do not re-
vuir. a surplus fund to- be raised by the
bank.. The only statutory provision Is that
of Sec. 47. Chap." 77, Laws ISBI. which reads
asfollows: "The total liabilities af any a*
, sociation of any person, or any company.
I corporation or firm, for mony borrowed, in
'■ cludinz In the liabilities of a company or
firm the liabilities of the several members
' thereof, shall at no time exceed fifteen per
cent of the aggregate amount of the capital
stock of such association actually paid in.
and of the permanent surplus fund of such
association." From - this limita
tion certain exceptions are made
as interpreted and specifically de
! fined in an opinion of the attorney general
; given to thf_ office under date of March 6,
1889 (see "Ojltuioe. of Attorney General,"
j page 49 ... Twelve of the thirty -two banks,
i as appearing from the separate statement.
J ot appendix A. bare availed themselves of
. the privileges of thie section,' and although
: nose of these banks are over twelve years
old and but four of the twelve were organized
• previous to IWI. tic surplus fuud set apart
by them now" amounts to 18.68 per cent, of
their combined capital, and •to 12.18 per
cent, of the capital stock of the whole num
ber of banks.
The increase of capital, surplus, aud indi
vidual and bank deposits since my last re
port amounts to 13, 453,268.45, and the in
crease in loans, deducting bills payable and
re-discounts, to $2,407,467.41.
Tho ratio of loans to capital, surplus and
net deposits is 84.6 per cent. The ratio of
cash (including exchanges and cash items)
to net deposits is 11.1 per cent, and the
ratio of cash on band (as above) and in cor
responding banks to net deposits is 25.7 per
* A RESERVK.
The total amount of immediate liabilities
to be covered by available funds on hand, as
shown by the summary was $S, 329, 930. 20.
Ten percent of this amount, viz: $323,
--098.08, "may consist of balance due to the
association from . good solvent banks; aud
ten per cent of such sum shall be held in re
serve as cash on hand." "Each associa
tion shall at all times have on hand in avail
able funds an amount equal at least to
twenty per centum of all its immediate liabil
ities," in this case $1,665,996.05. The bank
held on June 20, in cash on hand the sum
of 1817,482.54, or nine and eight-tenths(9.B)
per cent of immediate liabilities, and in cor
responding banks the sum of $1,210,505.48,
or twenty-four and three-tenths (24.3) per
cent of such liabilities.
i While therefore- the proportions of funds
held by tbe aggregate banks in cash on hand
fell short of the legal requirments, the total
amount of immediate liabilities was covered
by available funds, This total amount how
ever was preserved only because the condi
tion of a portion of the banks was suffi
ciently strong in this regard to make up the .
deficiencies of the remaining ones.
Thirteen of the thirty-two banks, accord
ing to their own sworn reports, were deficient
in the amount of cash on hand. Three of
the thirteen were also deficient in the amoun
due from banks, and four of the whole num
ber of banks reported insufficient funds to
cover their immediate liabilities.
The language of Sec. .49, Chap. 77, Laws
1881, sets forth legal definition of the terms
"immediate liabilities," and "cash on hand"
not capable of any other meaning or con
struction than that conveyed by the plain
reading of the section, viz:
"Immediate liabilities shall include all
deposits due to individuals, firms, or cor
porations, to banks, and all items in the
nature of claims payable on demand."
"In cash on hand shall be counted specie,
legal tender notes, and all bills of solvent
banks." . . V... -, . -
These definitions are printed over the
schedules calling for tbe calculations of re
serve on all blank forms of reports sent to
the banks from this office. .
In my last report I had ' the charity to
ascribe the many errors shown in tbe com
putation of reserve to misapprehension of
the terms of the law. It is now evident that
either gross and criminal carelessness pre
vails, or that there is an intention to ignore
the legal provisions altogether, lt has been
found necessary . to instruct almost every
bank making reports to correct their mode
as to the computation of reserve. I -trust
that it will not be necessary to repeat these
instructions, or to say again that time cer
tificates of deposits and amounts due to
banks are clearly included in the legal defi
nition of "immediate liabilities," and that
checks and cash items and clearing house
exchanges are clearly excluded from the
legal definition of "cash on hand." Neither

The l'cnnsulvania Against the Baltimore _£*
The open daclaration of war against the
Baltimore & Ohio by the Pennsylvania road,
as published in the Globe yesterday morn
ing, was very sudden, and to many a very
great surprise. The result of ' this action
will bo to cut the Baltimore & Ohio off com
pletely from New York and New England
points, and it can therefore no longer
compete for through business east, except
Baltimore and Washington from western
points. The Baltimore & Ohio has been do
ing .a very large New York business from St
Louis, Louisville, Cincinnati, Columbus and
otber points. From all this it ia now cut off.
The questions .. asked on all bands
is, what was this blow 7' struck
for? No one knows, but the best judgment
is that the step was taken by the Pennsylva
nia for the purpose of stopping the Baltimore
__ Ohio in its competition for New York traf
fic in" tbe southwest. Another interesting
point is as to what the Baltimore & Ohio will
do about it. Of course it is not to be ex
pected that it will quietly submit. . On the.
contrary the belief is that the road will hit
back in a vigorous manner. It will without
doubt form new connections to all points,
and force a serious rate war all "along the
line. This cutting of the rates to all points
in the cast and rendering the business of all
eastern roads as unprofitable as possible. It
is the general impression among railroad
men that a general passenger rate
war will fellow of large proportions, and
that it will be 60 conducted as to force the
interference of Vanderbilt and other eastern
magnates. Their roads could and would be
seriously injured. It is generally believed
that as soon as the Baltimore & Ohio should
be willing to make the desired concessions'
regarding tbe payment of commissions and
maintenance of uniform rates the Pennsyl
vania will consent to restoring the old way
of doing business.
The following shipments of cattle were
made over the Northern Pacific yesterday:
Twenty-three cars of cattle from the Mon
tana Cattle company, for Rosenbaum Bros.,
were received at the Minnesota Transfer;
also sixteen cars from Criscall & Son, Dick
enson, for Keenan '& Hancock; also twenty
six cars from Otto France, for Rosenbaum,
Chicago: also eighteen cars from P. & W.,
Mingusville, for Wood Bros., Chicago, and
twenty ears from Mingusville for Gregory,
Cooley & Co. Besides these* the headquar
ters of the road here had information that
twenty cars of cattle were shipped from
Miles City; also that sixty-six cars had been

'' The Coast Lines' Troubles.
Baltimore, Oct. B. The Sun this morn
ing says: It is thought in some quarters
thatthe complications which might ensue
from this move of the Pennsylvania railroad
will be tothe discomfort of that company as
well as the east and west trunk lines gener-
ally. Their interests are so interwoven
through the pooling agreement that such a
matter a3 attempting to shut out one of the
members of tbe pool will possibly bring
about disagreements. It Is argued that if
the Burlington __ Ohio concludes to take a
stand in that relation, such as that which
was made in December, the pool can exist
no longer. There will, undoubtedly,!.* lively
times, and evidences are said to be wanting
to indicate tbat a positive line of action tig
being considered. The Baltimore & Ohio
has a passenger line from Chicago to New
York, called the Niagara Falls Short line.
running to Detroit and Buffalo, where pas
sengers have the option of Erie or West
Shore to Nef York. Should this line com
mence to stash into passenger rates, other
lines would follow, no doubt.

agreed to restore rates, Monday, October 13.
The agreement is substantially tbe same as
that which governed the old pooL The per-
centage will be determined by arbitration,
George M. Bogne and J. F. Tucker being
appointed as arbitrators. This action termi-
nates the long fight which, it is said, cost the

proaching, and those of our citizens and
neighbors of Wisconsin, lowa, Dakota and

should send at once their applications to
R. O. Sweeny, president Minnesota state fish
commission, St. Paul, giving in full and dis
tinctly their names, state and county, post
office address, nearest railroad station where
fish applied for may be delivered. Also,
description and name of the water, lake or

member that it is useless to put carp with
any other fish, even if small.) United States
Fish Commissioner Baird has promised to

and innumerable lakes of the state marked
out, but the mountains, forests, quarries and
mineral regions. It will take about six weeks
to complete this jumbo map, which, as they
say down south, involves a "power of work,"
and which will more reliably inform the

Three Boys Missing".
Harry Greenleaf.and Albert Johnson, about
eleven years of age each, and an older lad,
residing with their parents in the lower part
of the city, disappeared from home last Sun
day afternoon, and though diligent search
has been made for them no trace of their
whereabouts has yet been discovered. A
gang of small boys called at a grocery store
on Dayton Bluff on Sunday night and bought
crackers and cheese and were
refused beer which * tbey made
considerable clamor for. They were heard to
say something to the effect that they should
not get anything more to eat until they ar-
rived at Hudson, Wis., and consequently
relatives of the missing lads went to that
place yesterday to trj- and get trace of them.

Activity Among: the Brethren Along*
the South Shore of Lake
Judge Larson's Chances for Congress-
TSpecial Correspondence of the Globe.]
Duluth, Oct. 7. — has been humorously
said of Superior City that it is as large as
Chicago, only it isn't built up yet. But if
the population is not numerous enough to be
crowded into cellars, or hung on pegs in gar
rets, what there is makes up in certain lines
of activity for lack of numbers. In political
vim and wakefulness the Democrats of the
"gem city of the un briny waters" are fat
ahead of their brethren of the "zenith city
of the unsaPed seas" and can get up a more
enthusiastic demonstration in a half hour's
notice than the Zenithers can in a week's
drumming. If the electoral vote of Wiscon
sin depended upon their work Cleveland and
Hendricks could watch the Blame hippo
drome with philosophic cheerfulness and
never doubt the result.
But although the vote of Superior Demo
crats is not the pivotal one upon which turns
the election of the next president, they are
working as earnestly as if everything de
pended upon them. The Cleveland and
Hendricks' club now numbers 338 members,
out of a voting population of 500. These
members are not all of that happy class whr
inherited Democracy with their mother's
milk, but many of them are recent converts,
drawn by their sound sense out of the
valley of corruptiou, and all the other fine
things that might be said on this subject.
They hold meetings every Thursday evening
in conveniently furnished headquarters, and
here they discus, the issues of the campaign
and arrange missionary work. They have
devised a very effective means for
reaching their Republican neigh-
bors. Such members of the club
as can afford it, subscribe for one or two
pure Democratic papers and have them sent
to those whom thej wish to reach. The Re-
publican gets the paper, but doesn't know*
who sends it, and thus without cost to him-
self, he receives much needed instruction
and enlightenment. If the Republican be
an Englishman, strongly John Bullish, he is
apt to find the Irish World coming regularly
to him, and as the columns of that paper al
ternate with glorification of Blame and jubi
lation over dynamite, the Englishman re-
jects both, disgusted with the party that ap-
peals to such extremists for temporary
purposes. Every now and theu the club
turns out in force and parades the streets
headed by the Badger State band, and they
never fail to make a line and imposing ap
pearance. The Globe has already published
the account of last Saturday night's big
demonstration, which is only an augury of
what they expect to have betwen now and
election daj'. . • .. 7
The secretary, John Keougb, tells me the
Democrats will carry Superior by 300 major-
ity, and the county by a larger figure. There
are quite a number of men working on the
eastern extension of the Northern Pacific
road to Ashland, and from inquiries among
them I find that tbe largest proportion of
them are In favor of the Democratic nomi
nees for national as well as local olfices.
Locally the Republicans are split up into two
factious, the Methodist and anti-Methodist,
getting their religious appellations from th_
fact that those who wanted to boss the con*
cern belong to the Methodist church. Even
if united they couldn't make any light to ren
der Democratic success doubtful.
There Is a very large Scandinavian vote
that is proportionately larger tnan other na
tionalitiesin Douglass county, and the
nomination of Judge Larson, of Eau
Claire for congress against Price will draw ofl
a good part of Ibis vote from the Republi
can ranks. Larson is personally well known
among his countrymen in northern Wiscon
sin, and is very popular with them. It looks
as if ho would beat Price in that section of
the country. Talking with a railroad man
from Ashland, whose sources of information
are good, I believe that all northern Wiscon
sin, along the shore of the lake, is likely to
give Democratic majorities. The entire
vote of course, is not very large, but every
hundred will count in that state, whioh this
year ta so extremly doubtful for the Republi
cans. The announcement of Thad Pound
that he would vote for Cleveland has had a
very, decided effect up in tbia region, and
many hitherto Republicans will follow bim
into the Cleveland ranks. Thus, from their
own numbers and energy, wish recruits
from the other side, it looks very much as if
the Democrats of northern Wisconsin would
make a good record for themselves this year
of grace and victory.
In tlio Garden of Eden.
It is said that our first parents were not
troubled by dyspepsia, and that they knew
nothing of debility, liver complaint, or mala
rious diseases. But the children of Adam,
from Cain down to the present time, have in
herited bad blood and a host of other dis
orders, most of wbicb can be driven out by
the timely use of Brown's Iron Bitters. Mr.
J. D. Rodder, of Grcendale, Va., was cured
of a bad case of eczema by this valuable
medicine, and recommends it to every one
in bis neighborhood for any disorder of the
