THE PLOW WORKS FIRE.
Plans of the Company— The Fire Department
On yesterday the scene of the fire which
destroyed the St. Paul plow works the pre
vious night was one of great activity. The
salvage was found to be quite large and
workmen were set at work at once to build a
temporary shed to house the goods in that
were saved. The fire came at a very inop
portune time, while the company was work
ing a full force and stretching every nerve to
manufacture stock for the spring trade which
was just opening very propitiously for the
company. Iv regard "to the future affairs of
the company no plan has yet been decided
upon. The plant was owned by a number of
. gentlemen beaded by W. B. Dean and was
j leased by the company. Mr. Dean said yes
! terday that no step had been taken to re
! build, nor would be for some time.
But $40,000 of insurance was involved in
: the fire. During the working season the
company usually carried more than this on
the outside, but this was omitted this year,
'by accident probably. The following is the
corrected list:

• A MEETING OF THE STOCKHOLDERS
of the St. Paul plow works, destroyed by fire
Tuesday night, was held yesterday afte rnoon,
j nearly all the shareholders being in attend
ance. The matter of insurance first came
•up and it was decided that no action with
regard to the reconstruction of the works
should be taken until after the losses had
been adjusted. The propriety of turning the
unfinished contracts over to the ' Harvester
'Works company was discussed incidentally,
but for the reason stated no • action was
taken.
In conversation with Hon. William Daw
eon, the treasurer of the company, last night,
that gentleman said that it had Dot been de
cided whether or not the works would be
rebuilt. The original plant, he said, was
owned by the old company nnd leased to the
present corporation. The plant cost about
$35,000, and he thought it could be replaced
for $25,000 or $30,000. According to Mr.
Lunn the loss would be in the neighborhood
of $35,000, aside from the insurance, which
was $40,000. The business had been very
prosperous under the new management and
the stockholders were satisfied with their in
vestment.
It is estimated that nearly a hundred me
chanic* were thrown out of work by the fire,
and as the business was paying good profits.
it is thought the works will be reconstructed.
WHAT AILED THE ENGINE}
There are two circumstances connected
with the handling of the tire with the facta of
which the public ought to be acquainted.
First the cistern was out of water, and sec
ond the rebuilt Hop- engine proved unser
viceable. In regard to the cistern It was
thought at first that it had been disarranged
by accident; but further Investigation by
Assistant Chief Jackson early yesterday
morning showed that the trouble was in the
bending of an Iron armature through which
the valve rod rune, deflecting the rod out >f
Its course and leading it away from the valve.
To straighten this armature required three or
four heavy blows with a hammer, which
fined to Indicate that considerable force
had been required to beud it In the first j
place, and that It could have hardly beeu
done accidentally. It is a fact that In a
former Inspection of these cisterns it was
fouud that the same condition of things ex
isted in the one near the Nelson lumber
works. This was remedied, and two weeks
ago nn inspection of the cisterns showed they
were in go.nl order. In regard to the failure
of the engine to perform Its duty, it is stated
that trouble was llrst occasioned by low water
in the boiler, and later by some uuknown
cause, as on yesterday it was tested thoroughly
by three engineers and found to work all
right. Its failure to respond to the demand
made upou it the previous evening is a
mystery, the solution of which will depend
probably on or.- of two hypotheses — incom
petency of the engineer or an obscure disar
rangement of tbe machinery. Were it not
for these two unfortunate circumstances,
which nre being further investigated, the
assistant chief is confident that he would
have beeu able to prevent a large part of the
damage done. There ha* been complaint
that be did not turn in a general alarm when
he found himself unable to cope
with the fire The fact was that
I general alarm would have called
three more engines to the fire, only one ol
which could have been used, while it would
have left the central cart of the city unpro
tected. Instead of doing this he telephoned
for the owe engine that could be of service.
Chief Black was at home sick a- bod at the
time of the Ore.

HURRAH FOR CLEVELAND !
Hon. William Dawson — have just read
the president's messpge. It is patriotic in
tone, good reading and th? sentiments are
fine, but after a careful perusal I think it
wholly uou-committal.
A large flag was flung to the breeze on the
highest cupola of Hotel Ryan yesterday in
honor of the inauguration of President Cleve
land.
• ***
Walking down Third street yesterday af
ternoon I accosted an old Democratic friend
and naturally, under the circumstances, I
extended my hand in congratulation on the
inauguration of our man. He of course ac
cepted my hand.but assumed such a dejected
air that I feared the rehearsal of some bad
news. ''It's all right, my boy," said he,
'but from the present outlook I prophesy
that in four months from now all the great
manufacturing establishments in the country
will be closed." I confess I was staggered
and timidly suggested that perhaps he antici
pated some radical innovations from the new
cabinet, but assured him I had every confi
dence in the new executive. Sadly he looked
at me, but the old merry twinkle came back
to his eye as he quietly remarked, "Four
months from to-day will be the 4th of July."
Now the good old Democrat who sold me on
that mouldy chestnut was Col. John S. Prince,
and I want him to know that I have passed it
along. '
*#*
And there was Joe Spiel, a Democrat true,
who hung out the banner of red, white and
blue, in welcome acclaims to salute the new
deal. Now this to some people may seem
rather queer, but. high license or low.Joe will
stick to his beer.

Pension Day.
Yesterday being pension day.at the county
clerk's ollice, Clerk Bell and his corps of
deputies were kept upon the jump from S in
t'le mornioz until s o'clock In the afternoon.
That office was an excellent place to observe
humanity in all its conditions, as there came
all rha«es from the well-to-do and sleek mer
chant to the most" impoverished citizen — the
nch, the poor, the sick, the able-bodied? the
hiiad, the halt and the cripple. Four hun
dred pensioners and more visited th clerk
during the hours given, and received vouch
ers for sums ranging from $30 to 190. An ap
proximate estfmate of the amount involved
ccuid not be reached, though it will doubt
less foot no a snug sum. Many of the peti
tioner* are of the belief that th!* work is
under Jurisdiction of : the government
authorities, and that it was necessary to
aasasse a complaining attitude to properly
impress the officials and crrate sympathy.
THE ST. PAUL DAILY GLOBE. THURSDAY MORNING. MARCH 5, 1883
One could - be?, seen with a trombone voice
rapping his broad chest* and growling about
his lunes,* and another dolefully shaking his
bead and running over bis multitudinous
ills. The bulk, however, was of veterans
and widows, and the old',' vet" needs to trump
up no excuse for drawing his pension. . In .
all these cases the clerk is allowed a fee, but
Mr. Bell almost invariably declines to receive
the recompense, which is provided for his
services. In some instances it is necessary
for the deputies to visit the pensioner, on ac
count of the latter's inability to.cet to the
office, but in one instance yesterday the ap
plicant was hauled in a spring wagon com
fortably piled with bedding to the clerk's
door.
THE DAY WITH HIS HONOR.
The Usual Police Court Grist Ground Out
There was a little difficulty between Mose
Saunders and Ccesar Warren, two gem-men
of color, the other night, which almost re
sulted in bloodshed. The row was • over a
bleached or terra cotta blonde, who formerly
passed as Saunders' wife, but who left him a
short time ago to reside with the *-' family of
Caesar Warren . Mose couldn't stand the
idea of being separated from his turtle dove,
and while possessed of the emerald-eyed
monster he went to the Warren mansion and
requested to see the little lady. Caesar met
him with a gun, saying he .■_.•_ would have
no monkey work around his . diggin's. and
Mose got behind a door and said, "For Lord's
sake, honey, don't shoot, or there'll be a dead
coon." After a peek-a-boo act Mose slipped
out and got a warrant for Caesar's arrest. He
was put under bonds to keep the peace.

round through the medium of the booze
goblet, and when night came bis head felt
like a whole torchlight procession and he was
in fairy land. When he awoke yesterday his
head was as large as a procession, but there
was no gayety in it and besides he had been
touched for bis boodle and arrested for carry

A Serious Misunderstanding With the North
western ■ Traffic Association, Which
V Threatens the Manitoba's Business.
THE MANITOBA'S DEMANDS. *
TJiat Road Wan's a Larger Per Vent, of Its
. v.c• Through Rate Entities*.
Special to the Globe. .
:: Chicago, March 4. — A somewhat serious
misunderstanding has arisen between the
St. Paul, Minneapolis & Manitoba railroad
and the lines in the Northwestern Traffic
association, that threatens to take the Mani
toba east-bound business via Milwaukee and
Grand Haven, instead of through Chicago.
The disturbance is due to a difference of
opinion regarding the division of
rates. Heretofore the Manitoba road
for its haul from St. Vincent to the Minne
sota transfer, has been allowed 50 per cent,
of the through rate to Chicago, and the lines
from. the Minnesota transfer to Chicago the
remaining half. The Manitoba company
has now notified.the lines in the Northwest-,
crn association that it will in the future be
satisfied with no less tl*an. 60 per cent.,allow
ing its St. Paul connections but 40 per cent.
It is practically assured that the latter will
not accede to the proposed terms, and nego
tiations are said to be pending between the
Manitoba and Wisconsin Central for carry
ing the Manitoba's entire grain out-put to a
connection with the Grand Trunk's Grand
Haven route. The traffic would then go east
over the Grand Trunk, thus giving this line
and the Canadaian Pacific (via Port Arthur) a
practical monopoly of the Manitoba east
bound grain transportation. The con
summation of "the arrangement with
the Wisconsin Central will depend, it is
said, upon the ola matter of an interpreta
-tion of the contract by which this road uses
the Milwaukee & St. Paul tracks from Schleis
ingerville into Milwaukee. Should it be found
that the St? Paul company has the "leverage"
on the Wisconsin Central, the latter will
doubtless be forced into harmonious relations
with the Northwestern Traffic association,
and the Manitoba will be compelled to
accept the terms dictated by the associa
tion. The matter is one of greater
importance than would casually appear, from
the fact that a diversion of the Manitoba east
bound traffic .via the Graud Haven route,
would not only deprive the Northwestern asso
ciation lines of- the haul from St. Paul to Chi
cago, but would also give the Grand Trunk
a monopoly of the traffic which eastward
from Chicago is now divided among all East
ern trunk lines.
Bt. Paul, Brainerd A Northern.
The passage of the bill transferring the
land grant of the proposed Duluth <fc Win
nipeg road to the St. Paul, Braiuerd & North
ern has i been awaited with interest in
railroad circles. The latter road now will
most likely be built, as the $3,750,000 bonds
of the company Mr. Kindred was arranging
for to be put in the Eastern market, have
been contracted for to open April 1.
The projection is wholly a Minnesota en
terprise, though Eastern capital is backing it.
The projectors when they first conceived the
scheme of building the line took a trip of
two weeks over the country where it would
run, traveling in* that time over 180 miles of
the best agricultural land thatcould be found.
The soil was loamy, and wooded with hard
maple and soft pine. The line ran from St.
Paul to Anoka, thence to Princeton, up the
Rum river to some point on the Mille Lacs
lake, thence to Brainerd, and some point on
the west end of Leech lake, and from thence
to Red Lake Falls and Crookston
by the . most feasible and direct route.
Work will be commenced early lv the spring,
and pushed forward as rapidly as possible.
It is their intention to run the line up to
Red Lake as soon as the Indian reservation
is opened.
The present officers of the organization
are as follows:
President, E. D. Webster; vice president,
H. O. Havill; secretary and treasurer, F. B.
Thompson. These three, with C. F. Kin
dred, W. E. Seelye, G. S. Can field, J. R.
Howes, G. T. Hartley and C. B. Sleeper will
constitute the board of directors; all residing
at Brainerd.
To Be Renrgnniz'd.
It Is the intention to reorganize the Joint
Western Classification committee iuto the
Joint Western Classification association!
which is to cover all the roads west and
northwest from Chicago to the Pacific coast.
lustead of having a chairman of the commit
tee, who is an officer of one of the Inter
ested roads, a ' commissioner Is to
be Sleeted for the association who
bas no connection with auy road.
He will be a full salaried officer and have
power to fix temporary classification until
the association can meet and take action
thereon. By this arrangement It Is believed
many difficulties will be avoided and classi
fication mutters more easily settled. It is
generally understood that Mr. Iglehard of
the Northwestern, the present sec

T/i«* Tripartita Agreement.
It is understood that a meeting of the
Western Trunk Line as*ociatlon will be held
in Chicago Some time next week to take ac
tion regarding its further continuance. The
L'ainn Pacific, it is thought, is opposed to
taking any definite action regarding tbe as
sociation at present, but wants the present
trace to continue until tbe final
status of the Transcontinental association
and the Colorado-Utah a«- xdation has been
definitely determined. The Union Pacific
does not want to antagonize the Northwest
ern and Burliagtoa ."-•'■ pre
fers to avoid a conflict with that, until It is
knowa how far they Intend to carry out their
schemes of building new lines into Union
Paciiic territory. -
Along th* Manitoba.
The Manitoba emigration officials state
that they sold more land during Janniry and
February of th!.- year than they did during
the same time last year, and note this as an
Indication for a heavy emigration to the
Northwest this season. The company has
ever two million acre* of land yet for tale
along the line from SO. Paul toft. Vincent,
ranging in price irom ii to $$ per acre, ex
cept in the Bed river valley, where special
rates ot $3 are offered for the
purpose of stimulating emigration.
A large number of inquiring letters are be
ing received from Nebraska. Kansas, Texas,
Kentucky and West Virginia. There wfl
be a general rush for the government land
about Devii's Lake, as it is the only section
in Northeastern Dakota which is exclusively
government land, and tbe pre-emption law
will most likely be repealed this year.
'irn—r* I Notes.
The east-hound freight rate situation from
Chicago eontinurs to be slightly irregular, aa
some of the '.ices are operating upon tbe
basis of 20 cents on grata and 25 cents on
provisions to New Tor*, while some of tbe
iruak lines are maintaining the fall tariff
figures.
A meeting of the Western Lumber associa
tion will be held some time next week at
Chicago. Geo. Jl.Rzme, G. W. Sfldgely and
J. H. Hiland will s-bmit a plan for' a re
organization of the association. It Is likely
that the proposed basis will involve the"; for
mation of two gross money pools.
It is said that a fast freight line will soon
he inaugurated to operate between St. Louis
and St. Paul, making the distance in thirty
seven hours. The. route will be the St.
Louis, Keokuk & Northwestern, the Burling
ton, Cedar Rapids & Northern and the Min
neapolis & St. Louis? '• ;
I'oln'ers.
* The order issued Feb. 27 by the Nickle
Plate line to agents to stop receiving freight
on account of snow has been canceled, and
the line is again open for business.
The letter-bead used by the passenger de
partment of the Manitoba is one of the pret

The bill appropriating pay for furniture in

ayes 7, noes 10.
Tin* CAPITAL RELOCATION
was advanced with other house bills ou first
reading to its second reading and was refer
red to the special committee having similar
council bills in charge. The house
amendments to the railroad com
missi, , bill . were concurred
in and the bill now goes to the governor. The
amendment is similar to the amendment
adopted by the Minnesota legislature yester
day. President Westover took the paper and
offered the following:
Resolved, That a committee of live be ap
pointed by the chair to investigate the
charges of" corruption and attempted corrup
tion of members of this Legislative assembly
and offer of bribes by Alexander McKenzie,
A. W. Edwards, L. G. Johnson and W. F.
Steele, for the purpose of influencing the
votes upon the question of removal of the
capita] now pending before the legislature,
and that said committee be instructed to
proceed at the earliest possible moment
to take action with regard to
such charges and to procure witnesses and
take testimony, and they report their action
and findings with all convenience, speedily.
In advocating the resolution Westover
said from Information received he whs able
to prefer these charges against the persons
named and would further say some of them
have for years dealt in political corruption.
They have endeavored to scatter scandal
broadcast against gentlemen he knew well,
residents of his district, who have always
lived honorable lives, and whom he in
tended to protect. The resolution was adopted,
and the president protein, appoitcd stover,
Gamble, La Moure, Twomey and Farmer to
make the proposed Investigation. There is
much bad blood growing out of the charges
and counter charges in thin matter, and the
action of members frequently influenced on
important measures of th ■ course others have
taken upon this matter. The sectional lines
are so sharply drawn upon this bill that sev
oral members, who would be glad to kill the
measure by any direct means are forced to
feel that they ire forced to go with the South
or be Charged with acting corruptly.
Stripped of ail pr»judicc the
bribery case stands about as follows:
i De Woody yesterday placed in the bands nf
Gov. Fierce a sealed package said to contain I
11,000 given birn by the members of the
bouse Interest* 1 in the removal of the capi
tal from Bismarck to Pierre. It is claimed
that L. G. Jonnson and others, concealed for .
the purpose, were witnesses to the transac
tion. It was'upon a statement of 'facts, i
If facts they prove to be, that the investiga
tion was moved by Ward, .aud ordered.
Jobnsoa was before the committee last even- ;
ing. but tbe examination was not concluded.
The proceeding* of the committee are sup
posed to be secret. De Woody claims i
that the money w2j banded
bim by a member of th" house: that it was I
counted if tbe presence of witnesses; that
be was sworn in two weeks ago as deputy
sheriff

and bring those in it to justice. Those In

think they have positive proof that wiil land

lookers on think a ?ery grave mistake has
been made by making these charges, even if
there is foundation for tb"*n. Tnis Ding
McK. ■:. said to Westover: "Myself aDfl
friends are now ready for an lavestlga- \
j tioa, and 'demand immediate investigation." j
i he continued, "1 know of some transactions
! that I will show up and put you on the track
j of now." Hoc. George W. Pierce is said to

Tit* Indians Ordered to Vacate.
Special to the Globe.
Hunox, Dak., March 4.— The news from
Crow Creek, the old Winnebago Indian res
ervation, sixty miles west from here, is that
the Indians have been ordered to Fort
Thompson and are quietly going. The gov
ernment troops are keeping a careful watch
to prevent squatters from going on the land
before May 1, the date named in the procla
mation for opening the reservation. A
large company went through here to-day
to take land on the reservation and others
are going from all directions. The burnto**
of shacks and driving out of squatters by In*
dians yesterday has frightened many whites
from going before May.
Encampment of the G. A. R. of Dakota
will be held here March IS and 19. Great
preparations are being made by the old sol
diers in Huron to handsomely entertain all
who come. Territorial Sunday School asso
ciation convenes here March 11.
Helena Legislators Celebrate.
Special to the Globe.
Helena, Mont., March Representative
Tingle introduced a resolution to adjourn
the legislative assembly on the 4th in honor
of the incoming administration, which was
adopted, and to-day the council chamber is
the scene of the wildest enthusiasm. Cham
pagne has fired the Republicans as well as
Democrats with true old-fashioned Demo
cratic hilarity. Both parties have joined
in ushering in the new administration
with the most enthusiastic and
patriotic speeches, the Democrats rejoicing
that the day of deliverance has come. The
inaugural of President Cleveland was read
amidst tremendous applause. The universal
judgment is that the document is an un
usually strong state paper. Democratic
Montana will, iv December, present her con
stitution in Washington and ask admission
thereunder into the sisterhood of states. The
legislature adjourns on the 12th inst., pass
ing more bills than at any previous session.
Farmers PtOlO.ng Near Mitchell.
Special to the Globe.
Mitchell, Dak., March 4. The weather
is charming. The frost is out of the ground
so that farmers are plowing in every town
ship in the county, and have been sowing
wheat for three days. Several- farmers in
today say they never saw the ground in bet
ter condition for crops. Mitchell is full ol
land-seekers. The opening of the Crow
Creek and Winnebago Indian reservations
is giving a great boom. Trains West are all
loaded with home settlers. Hon. Hiram Bar
ber, Jr., whose term of office expired yester
day as receiver of public money, has formed
a law partnership with Hon. A. W. linger of
this city.
