After a full discussion of the subject for
future provision for the insane of the state,
the following resolutions were unanimously
Jiesolvcd, That is the sense of this conjoint
conference consisting of the board of trustees
of the insane hospitals, their superinten
dents, the state lunacy commission and the
state board of corrections and charities that
the annexes to the present hospitals be built
as asked for by this board of trustees, be
cause demanded by existing needs, and be
cause the most economical method of caring
for the insane.
Resolvxl, That we recommend to the legis
lature at its approaching session to appoint a
commission to report to the legis
lature of 1887 a location and plna
for a third hospital to accom
modate the Insane then and thereafter to be
found in the state, and to save by this fore
sight and wise action this class of persons
being thrown upon the counties of the state,
they having no facilities for earing for them
and being unable to create them without
prater expense than this third asylum would
cost the 6tate.
The annexes proposed are detached build
ings at Rochester and St. Peter, that at
Rochester to cost $50,000 and that at St.
Peter $75,000 which annexes will accommo
date 695 new patients, both of which it is
thought by close crowding will give sufficient
for three years at the present rate of in

threw a chunk of Ice into the cooler yester
morning, "has had the effect of setting the
boys to hustling after their own or Borne one

little man with a rosy blossom on the end of
his nose made a break for the other
end of the bull pen, "the

Then hizzoner got into the pulpit and asked
Mr. Cunningham if he had been drunk and

"Look e'here sonny," said the general,

whom Sir Walter Raleigh made famous, but
a baddle-colored chin scraper, was up on the

rushing into his house without knocking and
scaring his wife, who was sick. The accused
gave bonds to keep the peace.

cooks in a hash foundry, was charged with

IMPROVING THE MISSISSIPPI.
Meeting of the Commission to Condemn
Lauds for the Proposed Reser
Proceedings were begun in the United
States circuit court yesterday, by the special
commission appointed under act of con
gress, having in view the condemnation of
land along the line of Pine river, White Fish
and other lakes at the head of the Mississippi
river, for the proposed reservoir.
The commission consists of ex-Gov. Mar
shall, CapL Merriman, of Minneapolis, and
W. W. Hartley, ofßrainerd, and in order to
facilitate the taking |of testimony as to the
value of lands to be taken by the govern
ment large maps showing the territory and
nature of the lands have been prepared.
The proceedings are begun under an or
der of the court in the case of the United*
States against the Northern Pacific Railroad
company and others. Among the principal
laud owners interested a.re J. Deane, David
M. Clough, James Patten, Henry B. Frey.N.
L. Pine, Benjamin F. Nelson, Wm. M. Ten
ney, and Hugh W. McNair, mostly engaged
in the lumber business at Minneapolis.
It is estimated that the commission will
condemn a tract of land 2,600 acres in area.
The ulterior object in building the reservoir
is to fortify the : government works at the
headwaters of the river and to improve the
navigation of the Mississippi in seasons of
drought or low water. The commission will
be in session several days.

Excursions to Europe from the northwest,
are of recent origin, in fact, last fall was the
first time, it was brought to public notice by
the enterprising emigration firm of A. E.
Johnson & Co. From what follows it is ap
parent that the excursion enterprise has
been placed on safe and prosperous footing.
At first glance it might be inferred that ex
cursions to Europe — to Germany, Sweden,
Norway and Denmark, has no greater signi
ficance than an excursion to Chicago or
Duluth, but it has a greater bearing on emi
gration to the northwest.
From the the resolutions adopted by the
Scandinavian Press association of the north
west, it appears that about 300 Scandinavians
from our section had joined a single excur
sion. They were not dissatisfied emigrants
returning to the Fatherland, but well to do,
prosperous, and happy people who so far
mastered the situation as to
feel able to take a breathing spell,
and for a season rejoin families, relations
and friends at borne. They go home to
gather about the "Jul-log," and their re
counting of experiences, their early disap
pointments and later victories, their accom
modation, and finally their homesteads—
ICO acres, or — will have a very impor
tant influence in inducing emigration. These
people, hundreds in number, scattered all
over Scandinavia during the winter and re
turning in the spring, and to all intents and
purposes bo many emigration agents work
ing indirectly, but unitedly, for the Interest
of our section, as well as paving the way for
the future prosperity of their immediate kin.
The following resolution shows the relation
of the Scandinavian press of the northwest
toward the enterprise of A. G. Johnson &
Co. in inaugurating these excursions*
In order to judge from personal observa
tion, the treatment and the accommodations
offered to passengers going to Europe, the
Scandinavian Press association of the north
west and a few personal friends, among
them Mr. J. F. Peterson, county com
missioner elect of Hennepln county, and
Hon. Andrew Tharaldson, accepted an invi
tation to join, as far as Chicago, a Thingvalla
line excursion on their trip to the old
country, and resolved to express as their
unanimous opinion :
Resolved, That the association appreciates
the marvelous results accomplished by A. E.
Johnson in peopling the great northwest by
Scandinavians, and that the present excur
sion to Europe of nearly 300 Scandinavians
on a single train and by a particular steamer,
is the best possible evidence that these people
l&solved, That the system of A. E. John
son & Co. In organizing, conducting and
managing their emigration business in gen
eral, and their European excursions in "par
ticular, in giving their passengers the great
est possible protection in having a trust
worthy agentaccompanying each excursion, in
taking care of passengers bagage,in arranging
for through trains, providing for transfers
and relieving the passengers of all anxiety,
care, annoyance and unnecessary expense,
has the endorsement of this association .
Jlesolvcd, That this association recognizes
the great importance lad. value to the north
west of this excursion by thousands of our
most prosperous Scandinavians, revisiting
their former homes, disseminating accurate
and reliable information about our resources
and advantages which stimulates immigra
tion of the most desirable people to our sec
tion. <j3 .
Jicsotved, That the Albert Lea route affords
unsurpassed accommodations and facilities
for handling all kinds and classes of passen
gers, that its Bolid through trains between
St. Paul, Minneapolis and Chicago are well
worthy of the liberal patronage received.
Jieidvcd, That Mr. S. F. Boyd,the efficient
and cautious general passenger agent of the
Albert Lea route, by his personal presence
in conducting this excursion,- was tireless in
his efforts for the comfort of the large num
ber of passengers, and furthermore resolves
these resolutions as a token of appreciation
and thankfulness be published by this asso
ciation in not only the Scandinavian papers
in this country, but also in leading Ameri
can papers of the northwest.
THE ST. PAUL DAILY GLOBE. TTEDVESDAY MORXIXG. NOVEMBER 26 1884.
The 81. Paul's Reply to Articles Reflecting
on Its Management and financial Con- '
A Milwaukee pedal «ays: The recent
publication of articles which It is alleged ap
pear to reflect on the management and finan
cial condition and prospects of the Chicago,
Milwaukee & St. Paul Railway company,' has
excited much comment among the people
here directly interested in the management
or securities of the company. At the general
offices of the St. Paul company in this city it
is no easy matter ordinarily to obtain - an ex
pression of sentiment in regard to any mat
ters affecting the road. But in this case
much feeling was manifested among the of
ficials. The statement that "there " are
| ordinarily truthful and careful men who as
sert that the St. Paul company is really in a
bankrupt condition, keeping up its dividends '
and interest out of borrowed mox.ey, and
likely some day to end in collapse," was
especially condemned as based on no condi- ■
tion of truth or fact.
Alexander Mitchell, the president of the j
company, however, took the situation with '
the same coolness which ordinarily character- '<
izes him, and seemed to attach but little im- j
portance to the publication. When asked If he !
intended to make any public reply, be said \
"It would be a waste of time to attempt to
reply to the absurd statements that are put
forth from time to time by those interested
in depressing the market value of St. Paul
securities. It is enough to know that the
stock and debt of the St. Paul company are ;
much less per mile than those of any other
of the lending western companies; that the j
property is in better condition than ever be
fore: that its facilities for doing business are
larger and better; and, most of all, that its j
earning capacity in these dull times, when j
the earnings of all western roads are at a
minimum, fully confirms the confidence of
its friends. These facts are more interesting
and instructive to the public than columns
of distorted figures and arguments to disap
A leading stockholder directly interested in
the management of the road . said: "Of
course we here in Milwaukee have a sort of
local pride in the St. PauL But local pride
have little or no influence when men come
to invest in railroad securities, and the stock
holders of the St. Paul company, who know
as much as anybody else about the manage
ment and condition of the company, know
that all attacks are based on a desire to in
fluence the securities, the business of the
company, and have no basis in truth."
The Lake Shor* Sued- for Vantage*.
Cleveland. Nov. 25. — About a year ago
Scoflcld, Shurber & Teagle, oil refiners, en
tered two suits in the common pleas court
here against the Lake Shore Railway com
pany, one for an injunction to restrain the
railroad company from discriminating in
freight rates on oil and the other for $100,
--000 damages in consequence of discrimina
tion in the past. The suit for injunction
was tried last winter before Judge Blandin,
who held the defendant as a common carrier
had no right to charge one customer one
rate and another a different rate for the same
service. The judge granted the injunction,
but the case wa» taken to the supreme court,
where the suit for damages is now on bear
ing. The plaintiff alleges serious dam
age to business, because the railroad com
pany transports oil for the Standard
Oil company at lower rates and furnishes to
the Standard company facilities in the way
of cars, switches, side tracks, etc., which it
refuses the plaintiff. The defendant an
swers practically that the volume of business
given it by the Standard company makes it
profitable to allow a rebate, as said company
furnishes about ninety per cent, of all oils
shipped from here, and moreover owns tank
cars, and takes all risks of fires. The plain
tiff alleges the railroad company refuses to
allow the firm to provide tank cars, and has
resisted all efforts to establish an equal foot
ing. The plaintiff further avers it has been
prevented from extending business on ac
count of inability to compete with the Stan
dard company in the oil markets, because of
different rates of transportation. The taking
of testimony is in progress.
Trying to ltestore Rates.
Chicago. Nov. 25. — A meeting of the
general passenger agents of lines west of the
western terminus of the seaboard trunk lines,
which embrace all roads from Buffalo west to
the Missouri river, was held here to-day, with
a view to the restoration of passenger rates
both ways between the points named. The
situation was discussed at length, and found
to be full of complications. The chief diffi
culty lies in that portion of the ter
ritory west of Chicago, in which
the rate war has been active for
some time. Lines east of Chicago have, for
the most part, been unwillingly forced into
it in order to protect their through business,
and have made cut rates thereon sufficient to
induce travelers not to purchase tickets at
local rates to Chicago for the pur
pose of their taking advantage of
nominal rates to Missouri river points.
The discussion was almost exclusively de
voted to the phase of the question, as an Im
mediate restoration of rates between Chicago
and the Missouri river is not considered fea
sible. The point at issue was how to con
fine the effects of the war to the roads west
of Chicago, leaving those between Buffalo
and Chicago in a position to charge full
rates. The latter roads appointed a com
mittee to draft a memorial. This was done
and the memorial adopted at a subsequent
meeting. It asks the western lines in all
their moves against each other to have in
view the rights and interests of their con
nections eastward. This will bo presented
to a meeting of the Missouri river lines next

That Indian Exhibition and Address
by Major sew9on.
The eastern press has spoken very highly
of the address of Major Newson, delivered in
Philadelphia, New York and Brooklyn, on
the occasion of the exhibition of the In
dians, and It is confidently asserted that
during bis trip he spoke to upwards of 100,
--000 people. The following complimentary
notices of his lecture are from the Brooklyn
papers. The Union of Oct. 21, says:
"Major Newson occupied most of the
evening with an eloquent defense of Sitting
Bull from the charge of killing Custer. He
also claimed that tour of the party was to
raise money to help the tribe. He claimed
the system of caring for the Indian was a
mistake. They were placed on reservations
under care of farmers who were too few to
teach them anything about agricul
ture, and with one hand on
their rations and the other hand on the
Foil, were told to be good Indians and rise.
He hoped that the people would demand that
congress would give the Indian a right to
ok n some land by warranty deed. He could
not call a foot of the land he occupied his
own, and yet it was deeded him from the
great spirit. Any native of other lands, by
becoming a citizen, could secure a fee of 160
acres, tut an Indian could not. Indian
agents had risen from poverty to the
possession of $300,000 in a few years. Not
by robbing the government, but the Indian.
Good flour became bard in transit, pork grew
musty and rusty, coffee chanced to pole
beans, and other mysterious changes went
on. There would be no need
to send ' them rations If they
were taught how to support themselves. 1 '
The Tutu* of Oct. 21st, said:— "When a
bald-headed gentleman — naturally bald and
not made so by aid of the scalping knife —
came upon the stage of Brooklyn Music hall,
last night, be found quite a goodly audience
assembled to bear his introduction to the
public of Mr. Tatonkaiyotonka, betterknown
by the translation of his name, Slttinsr Bull.
The bald beaded gentleman was Major T.
M. Newson, who was formerly a New Eng
land newspaper man. He has lived among
the red men for some time, feels a sort of
affection for them and is not afraid to tell
the white people of the country that their
way of treating the Indians Is a blanked out
rage. He recalled the circumstances of the
scrimmage between Gen. Custer and Mr.
Bull, when the general assaulted the Sioux
for peacefully marching toward Canada,
where Indians are decently treated, and
when the United States army was violently
and unexpectedly and deservedly sat upon,
for it was engaged in contemptible business.
The Indians, he said, did not want money,
tracts, store clothes, candy, and all that kind
of thing; they wanted a chance for life; they
wanted lands in scveralty; they wanted to
be taught agriculture; they wanted to be put
on a level with the ignorant, unwashed
European rabble that yearly pour across the
sea and bit immediately transformed into
full-fledged citizens. He thought it an out
rage that this government should do for for
eigners what it would . not do for the real
owners of the soiL When the Major was
through with bis preliminary dissertation the
Indians who had been fanning themselves
and cheerfully regarding the audience from
the stage, sang and danced."
The Eaylt said:
"The entertainment given by thejaborlgi
nese Is decidedly unique and highly interest
ing, accompanied as it is by an explanatory
lecture from which much valuable Informa
tion Is to be derived." V» ? :
The poet, Miller, of California, addressed
Maj. Newson as follows: "There Is usually
— n sight of nonsense about this Indian
question, but you talk good sense — go on,
I" in with you. \* .
The Philadelphia Time* of Oct 7, says: In
the evening the warrior, his wife, the Prin
cess Red Spear and another lady and six
chiefs held a reception at Association hall.
Their nation and themselves, their past and
present, together with their future aspira
tions, were eloquently discoursed on by Maj.
Newson, who introduced the noble redskin
warrior and made him. sing, talk and dance
for the amusement and instruction of the
audience. Mr. Bull made a feeling speech,
which was interpreted by Louis Primeau.
From all of which one would infer that the
wild Indians of the plains have a good
champion and defender in the person of Maj.
Newson. 'ivt'' j.J :

The Barnes-Norton Glove Contest-
The great glove contest, in which so much
interest is being manifested by the fancy,
will be decided to-morrow. Prof. Barnes
was visited yesterday by our sporting scribe
at his training quarters In the St. Paul gym
nasium. He witnessed the professor * 'take
his work," and after seeing him fight the
bag for half an hour, and wind up a two mile
spin around the track without showing any
fatigue, came to the conclusion that it will
be some time before any one of his weight
will force him to the ropes. Norton is pre
paring himself at the residence of - his
friend and backer Dr. Campbell, at
which place he has fitted up a
very servicable gymnasium containing all the
apparatus necessary for his work ; bis run
ning and walking is done on the roads lead
ing from the city. The stakes are $250 on
a side, the money realized from the sale of
tickets also going to the winner, which from
present indications will be no trifling sum

Alpin in front of him this time.
Webber, who is training Barnes, and
Meehan, who is performing the same office
for Norton, it is understood, will settle their
little difference in the same ring.

There is now a great demand in Dakota
for handbooks that give lists of otllces and

Members of the legislature, which meets

statesmanship. It is expected that some of
the leading editors will be invited to accom

The annual report of Supt. Beadle just
published, shows eighty-one organized coun
ties in Dakota, with school reports from
sixty-five. The number of persons of school
age is 77,490; teacher*, males, 853; females, '
2,048. The expenditure for school purposes
during the year was $1, 743,563. The report
insists that each section of the territory
should net $50,000,000 out of its school
lands, and that none of them should be sold
for less than $30 to $50 per acre. He ad
vises renting them for a term of years.
The remarkable success of Col. Morton in
developing revenue and satisfaction from his
fine strains of poultry, and the scarcity of the

rising young attorney, who had shipped to
him from the east two dozen chickens of one

It has been supposed that the very large
farms were confined almost entirely to north

Spink, who have just shipped 650 Spanish
Merino sheep from Wisconsin: Messrs.
Larrison and Labrie are two of our largest
and most enterprising farmers, their farms
embracing some 23,000 acres, mostly under
cultivation. They have raised this season
about 25,000 bushels of grain — mostly wheat.
They believe mixed farming is the most
profitable, and safest way of farming, an -I
during the last year they have invested quite
heavily in stock. Last fall . they purchased
the Oak Gulch property in Clark county, and
this season placed on it a herd of 430 cattle.
Their herd made a rapid growth, their range
being a large and finely watered tract.

-■I Striking Mirage.
The Leola Banner in McPherson county in
an account of a very striking mirage re
cently seen there pays: Ordinary corn shocks
resembled grata stacks, and indeed every
elevated object was for a time being on
stilts. A drove of cattle two miles distant,
when on hills, looked like a troop of ele
phants in caravan array. Atone time they
descended into a ravine, and the delighted
audience expected to lose sight of the ani
mals entirely. When in the ravine only tho
upper portions of them could be distin
guished by the spectators when occupying
the level ground. By stepping from tho
ground to a doorway about a foot high, ■
party of three were surprised to find that the
animals had apparently grown In hehiht al
least twenty feet, and by jumping up and
down would increase and diminish alter
nately in magnitude. During this time,
when entirely in view, they resembled noth
ing other than huge masses of moving
substance. These strange distortions, taken
together with the many phases of magnified
pastoral beauty, presented a scene that its
fortunate audience will not soon forget.
