THEY WON'T FIGHT.
Qnibbles, Quirks and Dodges Ke
sorted to to Avoid the Mill
According to an agreement mutually en
tered into by the parties concerned, Billy
Wilson and C. A. C. Smith, the colored
pugilists, and their representatives, met at
Mr. Barnes' saloon yesterday at 3 o'clock to
make arrangements for a match. There was
a desire on the part of Wilson to go in for a
hard glove, Marquis of Queensbury rules,
fight to a finitsb. Smith and his backers
would not agree to this, but wanted a four
round mill. After a great deal of quibbling
and unnecessary talk an agreement was
finally come to that it should be an eight
round fight, the supposition being that would
be equal to a fight to a finish. It is but jus
tice to Wilton to say that he was eager
for a fight to the finish, as he
claimed that wag the only way to 6ettle
who the best man is. Smith's crowd did not
want the mutch made for a finish for some
cause. When this was nil settled, then came
the war over the articles of agreement There j
seemed to be a disposition on the part of the
managers of the two men to be somewhat
bull beaded, and to try to pick up a disagree
ment on every occasion no matter how small.
First there was a dispute over the second de
posit. Smith's backer found out Wilson's :
man was not prepared to put up the money :
on the spot, and consequently wanted to ;
call the fight oft. This was finally settled
and the young man who was drawing up the
articles of agreement went ahead until be I
came to who should be tbe final ttake holder. I
Here again there was trouble. Several par- ;
ties were mentioned, but an agreement could
not be reached. Smith's backers would not '
agree to any one but their man, and Wilson 1
would not accept him, consequently the flint i
was declared off for the present, although
the principals declared a match would be
made before long.
Smith's backer claims the reason he held j
out so strongly for bis man for stakeholder
was that there seemed to be a disposition on I
the part of McAipine to object on account of j
his being a colored man .
Late last evening Mr. Smith and bis
backer called at the Globe office and with
drew his preliminary deposit of twenty-five
Ed. McKeown, who fousht at Winnipeg
some weeks ago with T. A. C. Smith, of St.
Paul, arrived in St. Paul last nittbt. H^ has
conic here for the ptirpOM <>: training for a
tiiitil be has on haud with F. C. K. Fullerton.
The terms are that the two shall Bpar to a
finish with soft gloves, for $500 a6ide, and
the receipts of the house, Police Qaj/dte rules
to govern. The fight is to take place in the
lily of Wiu n i p <: in 6ixty days from Nov. 25,
1884. Mr. McKeown called upon Mr. Barnes
last evening, and accompanied the latter
to the Olympic 1 theatre where Barnes sparred
with Paddy Norton . Mr. MeKeuwn will
probably go iuto traiuinc: here.
Opinion by Attorney (reneral Halm.
Attorney General Hahn replied as follows
yesterday to several questions concerning
bridges and highways, propounded to
him by A- Q. Eaton, attorney of Wright
First— Are tdjoining counties obliged to
build bridges over streams dividing: them in
the town* adjoining in each county refuse to
Answer — I think not. lam not aware of
any law compelling them to do bo.
Second — Arc towns obliged to build over
such dividing streams)
Answer — They are not. in my opinion.
Third — Are the several towns in any
county obliged to build and keep in repair
ccunty roads end bridges?
Answer — They are obliged to keep such
roads in repair, but not to build the same,
(See section 56, chapter 18.)
Fourth — Is a county liable for damages
sustained by reason of a defective or broken
Answer— lf the defect is in the construc
tion of the bridge and the bridge is a
county bridge or part of a county road, then
the county is liable. If such work is under
taken by the county it must be done in a
workmanlike and suitable manner — Wharton
on negiligence, section 960, Clemeoci &
Aubuorn 66 New York, 534, If however the
defect is a latent defect and the
county has taken due care in the con
struction of the bridge it is not liable,—
Rapbler & Moore, 68 Pennsylvania statutes
404. If the damage is caused by want of re
pair the town whose duty it is to keep such
portion of the county road in repair is liable.
The liability lies where the duty lies.
Mr. Smith and Maj. RiddelL
St. Paul, Nov. 4, 1884.— 1n the Day of
last evening it is evident that "Veritas" is
ashamed of his dirty work, or he would write
over his own name. We remark:
1. It is an evidence and a matter of rec
ord that "the newspaper accounts of Mr.
Riddcll's war record" were written or in
spired by a man who obtained bis informa
tion from "conversation with Mr. Riddell"
and correspondence with bis friend 6, thus
making Mr. Riddell morally responsible for
2. It is a remarkable and significant fact
that all the letters I ever received favoring
the pretensions of Major Riddell were pub
lished in my pamphlet. I never received a
letter from Fort Snelling in which Maj. Rid
dell was referred to, either directly or indi
rectly. I will publish all omissions and
omitted letters if "Vtritas" will pay the ex
3. "Mr. Smith was not rebuked by Dr.
Riddell for impertinence." A third party,
himself a clergyman, was present at that in
terview, and bis written statement differs
materially from that of Major Riddell.
4. Some months ago we were sufficiently
notified that the first Baptist church was
able to take care of i*s owu affairs, and do
not know why we should be notified again,
and in this public manner.
5. We fail to see what connection our
business affairs have with Mr. Riddell'6 case.
He has to deal with "public records and cer
tain reputable gentlemen." To ring the
changes on "an excellent member" will not
relieve his case. The records of the
war department show that Mr. Riddell
entered the ai-my in October, 1861, and that
for the entire period of his service he was
marked on the company rolls as "present for
duty," except for a few weeks in 1862, when
he was detailed as waiter in a hospital at
Frederic, Md. How could he have been
present for duty with his company and at the
Bame time been for weeks in Gen. E well's
At the meeting in the chapel last Monday
evening, when Mr. Riddell presented what
was expected to be a vindication, if his state
ment justified the name, it seems to me that
instead of closed doors aud rigorously ex
cluding all outsiders, the house would have
been open to all and the widest publicity in
vited. Instead of this, we are only served
with auother vote of "confidence."
The following is from a prominent Baptist
clergyman, referring to this case. "I have it
in my heart to be tender and lenient towards
any man who is severely tempted, and in
an hour of evil surprise and overwuelmninp
passion fives way. But for. this premeditated
and studied effort to build one's self up into
favor and prosperity by unequivocal falsify
ing, I have a contempt which has little or
none of brotherly sorrow.
"Such a tiling drags down the ministry,
kills its influence and spoil? the good and
heroic efforts of a thousand men. .

, Three Important Suits Bpj^nu.
In the United States circuit court yester
day suit was begun by the St. Louie River
Dails Improvement company against the St.
Louis Water Power company. The com
plaint sf.s forth hat plaintiffs age an organ
ization whose object la to improve the navi
gation of the St. Louis river and that in
order to do this they desire the tight of way
over the land and dams controlled by
the pcfendane9. The object of th- suit Is to
have the court appoint a commission of three
to fix the compensation of such privileges.
.Suit was be^un in the Unit, State* cir
cuit court yesterday by Oacar Moar and L.
Bsrtlett against James G. Lawrence and
others to enforce payment* of loans made to
the Hlaaewta Elevator company, amount
ing to $48,516.
An action was commenced In the U. 8.
circuit court y«-Merday by H. H. Hodadon
against the Western Union Telegraph com
pany. The plain tin* wag employed by de
fendants to spike cross arms on telegraph
pules and while so enraged on March 23,
1884. he fell twenty-five feet and mangled
his limbs, lie cues for $10,000 damages.
To the Editor of the Globe:
Before the war I was on duly as a captain
of cavalry tn the department of Texas and
often the wild Indian 3 would make forays
upon the frontecr settlement for Uie purpose
of replenishing their stocks. On these occa
sions they never committed murder unless
they found some lone man and in that case
be would be filled with arrows and scalped.
Events of this character were usually reported
promptly to the nearest military siation
when a detachment of mounted men would
be Bent in pursuit. Under such circumstan
ces the Indians would attempt to escape by
routes which would avoid other settle
ments, rendering it necessary for Ha
diers to take provisions with them for none
could be obtained in tb? country they would
have to travtr*e. Often the pursuit would
continue longer thau was expected,
and in conerquexec the supplies wool
; out, and it no frame could br procured It
would become necessary to kill one of the
: animals und subsist on its flesh. B
• neces.-.ity MM not of frequent
occurrence. On one of these trips I came un
| expectc-dly upon a town containing about a
| thousand tenement!*. Previous to this noth
j ing had ever been known of this town and
■ my surprise in tadfag m\>.elf the dl?'
lof this vast (-rttli-nn- nt can be more
i imagined than I can tell it. Al <>v
tided to encamp for the night and lafMtf
gate the haMh and customs of the inhabi
; tants, and when I give the facts con:
! with my researches they may seem to be on
tli'- order of Munchausen, yet 1 assure you
that every word I shall write shall be the
truth, the whole truth, and nothinc but the
: truth. There was not a court bouse or jail
in the town lrom which I readily
infered that it was a peaceable
community — that each member was a law
unto himself or herself, and acting upon the
golden rule no courts or jails were necessary.
There was not a saloon or gambling house in
town, and bom of the inhabitants ever drank
a drop of liquor in their lives. There was not
a church nor a school house in the place.
The streets were not graded and the occu
pants never paid any taxes or assessments.
There never was a carriage or any other ve
hicle employed by any one in the settlement.
Base ball was unknown, as they published
no newspapers and received none from with
out. The males and females dressed
scantily thouirh neatly and modestly.
As there was not a dry goods store in the
village the females did not wear bilk or satin
dri'SM's, and the males never wore claw
hammer coats or tile hats. Not a pintle one
knew who was president of the United SUle6
and did not care to be enlightened. After
acquainting myself thoroughly with this
isolated community, I christened it
Pkajkie Dog Town.

From the appearance of the political at
mosphere in Illinois, at present, the Hon
John A. Logan will be delegate sood to pri
vate life, and thereby reap the reward he so
justly earned for his persistent efforts in at
tempting to prevent justice being done a
fellow citizen and a brave soldier, one who
exclaimed in his defense, "The thousand of
dead rebels in front of my company, now
at Malvern Hill, show whether I was a traitor
to my country or not. " one who has suffered
more than death, and that the incoming ad
ministration will no doubt see that his dis
abilities are removed, and he reinstated ere
'tis too late, to full citizenship. As a partial
atonement for what he has suffered we
would recommend Gen. Fitz John Porter
as a proper person for our next secretary of
war. And next as having been abused by
the same influence, we 6ay erive us for our
next secretary of tbe navy, Gen. Geo. B. Mc-
Lellan. With these two at the bead of
those respective departments, at the end of
four years every American citizen will hold
up his hands and thank God a change was
made in tbe administration of our political
affairs 'ere it was too late. These are the

Christmas In New Orleans.
It iswiUi tue greatest satisfaction that I am
enabled to announce U> teachers and other*
that I have arranged for an excursion to
New Orleans, to leave Minneapolis at 1 :30 p.
m.on Monday, the 22J inst., and St, Paul at
2 p. m. of the same day, tlie Pullman palace
cars comprising the train to proceed without
chance direct to New Orleans, arriving at
tbe "Paris of America" as the bells chime
out for the early grand maps at tbe famous
old cathedral to usher in holy Christmas a
full day in advance of any other Mm
neaota excursion. By this fortunate
and desirable arrranirement tlie
cars bearing this party will be
connected with a regular through express
train, thus avoiding the excursion rush of
the following two days and enhancing the
comfort and pleasure of the trip, while the
cost will be exactly the same as by more
crowded and slower trains: viz., to Rot
Orleans and return, good for twenty day*,
$32.50, and berth in splendid Pullman sleep
ers, $8. The party will be accompanied by
an experienced passenger excursion agent
of the route, and a resident agent will meet
the party to conduct them to desirable quar
ters in New Orleans. Apartments at Hotel
Royal will be supplied at $1 per day, and
this party has secured earlier selection than
any other from Minnesota. Local
excursions and participation in all
the pleasures of the season,
educational and otherwise, will be arranged
for this party by a resident, and as no out
sider can; but none will be debarred from
participating in any privileges promised by
Prof. B. F. Wright. The fullest information

the government officers have ■ share In the

In I' a Ilrmrdtj?
A fanner in Barnes county states In this
his view of what is needed: At present the
iarmers are wholly at the mercy of tlie
elevator companies, and have no re
dress whatever against any injustice the
elevator agent may inflict. If the farmer
enjoyed the privilege of shipping his grain
iv bulk be need nut necessarily accept the
erode, or suffer tbe dockage to which the ele
vator agent may feel disposed to subject bis
wheat. What is wanted to remedy the evilf
It is a law requiring the railroads to give
facilities for loading cars with all kinds of
grain in bulk on side tracks to ail applicants,
at tb.- same rates of freight as they give ele
vator companies. No one can question tbe
justice of this demand. If an act of tbe
above nature waa passed by the legislature it
wouid create an open market, and instead of
the farmers being under a one-man power
as they now we, aud have been in the past,
outside buyers would establish grain ware
houses in this and other wheat centers, and
healthful competition would prevail.
-The last legislature attempted to cover this
ground, but iv legislation ' has not proved
effective. : The corn mission it created has
done & good deal uf traveling and manifested
much interest .in the affairs of the farmers,
bat has afforded no relief. The wheat men
insist upon equality with tit* elevators in
in dealings with the railroads.
l'arao lirpuMlenn'* Comment*.
The Fargo J2rpi&!ican, Id noting an article
that appeared in this department in reference
to statehood;' expresses the opinion that in
the next eight Tears, If the Democrats control
cousrress, as they are almost certain to do,
there can be no admission of Dakota except
as one Hate, and that all Effort at division
will be futile. It is possible that it would not
put on sack cloth and asbes If 1t afarmld re
main undivided. In view of tbe one sided
voting it thinks that it will be two years be
fore the Democrats will even consent to ad
mit it as one state. There are many who
agree with it as regards unity who do not
think it politic or popular to aaj so.
There is rightful kicking in Dakota over
tbe fact that while wheat a>d nearly every*
thing else has fallen from 25 to 100 percent.,
eo*J, the chief article of fuel, has not been
affected at all. Greed and monopoly are
charged as tbe cause of this oppressive ex
action. Tbe farmers and those working with
them, which includes pretty much everybody,
are becoming thoroughly stirred op over
what they regard as their wrongs. Organi
zations have been formed and tbe past week
meetings held in numerous localities, one at
Valley City and one at Fargo. They aim to
operate somewhat quietly but effectively.
The chief purpose is to devise means to secure
what they believe they are justly entitled to
for their wheat. They are fully convinced
that they hay« been systematically defrauded
by monopolies. One of them relates that his
wheat was trraded as rejected at home, but
he was allowed to ship it himself by using
sacks, and it was found to be No. 1 hard.
Tbe legislature will be used so far as possible,
and then other agencies.

The Ellendale .Wir.t has this mention of &

W. Hail, of Grand Rapids, has a reputation
as an author which any one might envy,
having written four complete books, among
the rest is tbe popular work entitled "Drift

Montana * Vote.
The total vote of Montana at the election
last month was 26,977, an increase of 3,655
over two years years ago. The Democratic
majority of two years ago of 1,484 is reduced
to 207. The vote of Dakota is more than
three times as large, and if Montana is big
enough for a state there should be a good
show for south r>akoU with 50,000 voters. It
may be unfortunate that Montana just now
seems to be doubtful for the Democrats and
has chosen a Republican legislature. . It is
asking a good deal of Democrats as partisans
to admit three or four states that are likely
to send all Republicans to the United States
Utah Priced Fodder.
The Keystone Commercial reports incidents
like this to excite the envy of people at the
plethora of money among rural editors,
leaving pocket* full for cows to feed on.
Probably the seal skin coat was too high
priced or the bovine would have taken that
down also: E. O. Blair, of the Koto Xm>,
while visiting near Ellen dale, went out to the
barn to help do the chores, and bunt? his coat
containing $115 on a peg near by, and while
bis back was turned, a cow standing therein
gobbled money and pocket book.
As showing. the profit in hogs in North
Dakota, the Valley City Democrat relates that
a man bought two pigs last spring and they
now weigh 250 pounds and are worth $30.
It says: "About two weeks azo he purchased
at the mill 300 pounds of feed. Of this he
has used about 100 pounds And now be
reports the bogs as weighing 250 pounds
each. This, at six cents a pound, would be
$30. The young pigs cost Lim $4 each,- the
feed $1.25 a hundred, a clear profit of over
$20 on hi- Investment. Fresh pork retails
here at twelve and a half cents and salt pork
at about the same. Farmers, do you see any
money in raising pork
Jtt<lg* Gifford'a Information. ,
Jndce Gifford writes to a gentleman in
Fargo that be has recently had information
from Delegate Maginnls, of Montana and
other influential Democrats, to tbe effect tbat
there may be a chance for Dakota and Mon
tana to be admitted together as states, but
little hope for division of Dakota. The judge
seems to be inclined to tbe view that it wimkl
be belter to come in as one big state, If there
appears no hope for division, rather than
continue as one territory six, eight or ten
years. He will spend most of the winter at
Washington, studying the situation and co
operating with Maginnis and others.
A BrUjht futur*.
Tbe Sioux Falls Pro* says that tbe recent
movement so energetically inaugerated there
looking to the building of tbe Rock Rapids,
Sioux Falls and Northern railroad from a
connection with the Burlington, Cmlar
Rapids &. Fortbern to tbat city, bas had the
effect of already attracting tbe attention of
many business men and manufacturers to
Sioux Falls. Tbe progress of the movement
has been watched by hundreds of men, on
the alert in different sections of the west, for
an opening to engage in commercial and in
dustrial pursuits, and a number who have
become thoroughly convinced of the superior
advantage* offered by Sioux Falls, In view of
the prospect of tbe early completion of tbe
road in question, have made propositions to
locate there. Among tbe new enterprises se
cured are a door and sash factory, a bag and
I twfne mill, soap factory, butter and egg
depots, etc. Probably no city In the terri
tory baa as many natural advantages, and
the place has a bright future.

■The little excitement of the previous day
was cooled down yesterday in reference to

a hopeful feeling has sprung up that work
will be driven for all that it is worth, as the
stockholders cannot afford to let so much
money be idle, and to pay 7 per cent . buni
ness will require to be larger than at any
previous time. The gMVtag of the head of
fice to St. Paul is viewed in a favorable lteht
by many, as it will put an end to the clamor
of having the works removed to St. Paul.
Most of the stock here is preferred stock and
comes under the 7 per cent, arrangement,
and whatever there is of ordinary stock is
in no worse- a position than formerly. Taken
all in all, the cbansre is tbe best that could be
made under the crippled condition in which
the company waa. The new concern wiil
have an unlimited supply of money, which
was the ouly thing required to tide the old
company over the hard times. We predict
a time of prosperity for the city in the near
future should tbe present arranirenri' nt in
relation to the Car company be carried out,
which we trust it will be.
