••The storm which has been prevailing
here to-day has been quite general.
Starting in Western Montana, it swept
down into Kansas and thence in a north
erly direction toward the St. Lawrence
valley, .snow fell in Dakota, Minne
sota," lowa. Wiscontin and Michigan;
while south and east of these states rain
prevailed. The _ti rra center is now in
the region of Burlington' 10., and by to
morrow morning will be in the St. Law
rence valley. In Dakota and Nebraska
strong winds have bet drifting the
snow to-day. and travel will probably be
delayed in "that region. A twenty-four
ndlewind has been blowing in Nebraska
and Western lowa all day."
Seriously Delayed All Railway
Business in Dakota.
Among the railroads the Northern
Pacific got, by all odds, the worst of the
■storm. It was rough, fast and furious
for over two days, and swept over the
entire line to the foot of the Pocky
lit linn, tilling the cuts and drifting
all over the road, so that there was great
difficulty in running trains at all. It is
admitted by the officers of that road to
have been the worst storm the road has
ever encountered, and the longest con
tinued. The one that prevailed last
week on the read was regarded as un
usually severe, but it was very mild
when compared to this one. 11 com
menced early Wednesday morning, and
had been " blowing and snowing
steadily for two days up to last
night. * with a good prospect of
continuing still longer. During
these two days from eight to ten inches
of snow fell on a level in Dakota. It
snowed steadily all day Wednesday, but
the blizzard proper did not begin till
Wednesday night, when the winds
were let loose from all quarters. The
worst of the storm was encountered east
of the Missouri river in Dakota. Up to
last night it was still snowing. Of
course work is progressing all along the
line of the Northern Pacific and as far
as possible trains are kept moving, but
of. course they will all be more or less
The Manitoba was . touched by the
storm very much as the Northern Pa
cific was, and was engaged all day yes
terday laying up trains where it was
found they could not be run safely.
The Eastern lines were troubled very
much less than those running west.
The Chicago & Northwestern was
troubled by the storm to some extent,
but not enough to delay the trains to
any great extent, all getting in nearly
or quite on tune. On the eastern part
of the road it was snowing and blowing
hard at times, the snow turning partly
to rain. On the northern division it
snowed hard and drifted a good deal,
the winds being heavy from the north
and northwest. On the western divis
ion, from Sioux Falls to St. Paul, there
was considerable snow and sleet, with
a tendency to turn into rain. On the
Nebraska division there was a good deal
of snow and some drifting, with weather
increasing in intensity. The Milwaukee
ft St. Paul, on its Eastern and Western
Hues, and the Burlington were much
the same as the Chicago & Northwest
ern. The St. Paul ft Duluth got a good
brush from the storm, with a good deal of
wind and snow, but the running of
trains was not very seriously- interfered
with. The same may be said of the
St. Paul & Kansas City line. :

"No action has yet been taken by the
authorities at Washington looking to a
disposition of the ("row Indians at Fort
Snelling.*' said Gen. T. H. linger yes
terday, "and as military captives the.
are still our charge. As far as lam
concerned, my opinion is that these, peo
ple should be placed at some point
where they might be taught a trade;
but at present there is no such oppor
tunity. To be sure, there are Indian
schools, but these are intended mainly
for the educalian ami training of young
Indians, and it would not do to place
their elders in their midst, as they
would exert an evil Influence which
would be difficult to counteract Hu

and half the white men of the "World
would be willing to be supported by'
the other half if the way was opened;
and in this respect the Indians are not
different from their white brethren.
But let it be made compulsory upon
them either to work or starve,
and a solution of the Indian
problem will speedily be reached
when other devices have signally tailed.
Many of the Indian tribes are "already
self-supporting, and desire little or no
assistance from the government, and
notably in the case of those living in
the Indian Territory, and the Flat
heads. Congress does not intend that
the Indians shall be an everlasting
burden upon the taxpayers of the
United States, for in all the appropria
tion bills care hat been taken to limit
the time for the payment of annuities
with a view to some day cutting them
"An industrial school where farming,
rough carpentry blacksmithing and
similar professions would be taught,
cannot be established too soon. My ex
perience, and that of others at the dif
ferent forts and reservations, teaches
that the Indian is very apt, when he
wants to learn anything. Just as his
white brother, when driven to the wall,
finds . that lie must work or perish,
and goes in to accomplish his own sal
vation, so does the Indian. He will be
lazy, thriftless and negligent unless it
is demonstrated that he must labor in
his own behalf, and: the prisoners at
Fort Snelling are not exceptions to the
rule. They have been put at work to
lessen, in a degree, the irksomeuess of
captivity, and are probably more con

THE ICE CHOP.
Work of Gathering in the Frozen
Cubes for Next Summer's Use.
Very few people, excepting those di
rectly concerned in the business, have
any idea of the magnitude of the ice
trade of St. Paul. Ice is a cold subject.
The People's Ice company commenced
cutting on Dec. 19. The company takes
the bulk of its ice from Lake Phalen.
This year it has established a plant at
White Bear and will take from that
lake about '20,000 tons of ice. Its total
crop will amount in the neighborhood
of 07,000 tons, or 134,000,000 • pounds.
This company is furnishing the ice for
the ice palace. The 20,000 tons ot more
of the frozen blocks to be used in the
construction of the palace are being
taken altogether from Lake Como. Ac
cording to a city ordinance no ice cut on
the river is allowed to be sold. The
People's company has 160 teams em
ployed in transporting its ice from the
lakes and twenty-three houses in which
to store it. The ice at present is about
eighteen inches in thickness and of ex
The St. Paul Ice company commenced
cutting on Tuesday at White Bear lake,
also at Pickerel lake, situated three
miles from the city. This company in
tends to cut about '20,000 tons, and' has
fifty teams engaged hauling the trans
parent cubes to its ice houses.
The late heavy s now, falls have in
terfered somewhat with the cutting of
ice, but notwithstanding this there will
be, abundant ice for all this summer and
no possibility of a famine.

ON "C HRISTIAN SCIENCE."
Mrs". Plunket, the Exponent of the
Faith Lectures in St. Paul.
An audience of curious people, many
of whom looked as if they came because
admission was free, turned out to hear
the lecture of Mary' H. Plunket on
"Christian Science" at Turner hall last
night;' Mrs. Plunket is president; of
Hopk in's college, Chicago, and a wo
man of much learning. _•.••:_,
She began with an indorsement of
what Mrs. Choate had said, that to love
God first, last and forever is the whole
of it. Your activity is nothing until it
leads you to' help others; that gauges
your love to God. She preferred the
name Christian Science, because it hon
ors Christ; and- insisted that true scien
tific _ healing was- the hearty ! "ac
knowledgement and love of God in all
things. By admitting that evil is a
power we become idolators, for we be
lieve in more than one force. People
have tried to get this great truth in va
rious ways, but the world never knew
how to get it until it came through
"Science and Health." When you un
derstand the truth you know you are
not sick or a sinner. • .
When we understand the law we can
heal the sick by stating the truth that
there is no such thing as sin, sickness or
death; by denying what is false and
affirming what is true. The thought of
the world is against you, and unless you
hold fast the truth and keep the law,
you will relapse. Spirit is all, the flesh
profiteth nothing. Unless you come up
to that you cannot be well, you ought to
be sick. Every thought you indulge
will strike some one for good or for
harm. Evil thoughts always do
harm. If you * have sickness,
name it, call it delusion, and if you real
ize what you are saying it will vanish.
In the same way relief may be obtained
from any distress that comes upon you,
and all your wants will be supplied
when you truly desire to have them; for
this is the law. The speaker emphasized
the thought that, in order to produce
the desired effects either upon one's self
or somebody else, the result must be ex
pected in the present time, not referred
to an indefinite future. Say not "I shall
be well." but "I am well;" and if you
are sincere you will be well. .
Which a Duluth Man Says -Will
Rival the Hot Springs of Ar
"Speaking from personal experience
drived from a sojourn of several weeks
at Mount Clemens,. Mich.," said Mayor
John B. Sutphin, of Duluth, yesterday
afternoon as he sat in the rotunda of the'
Merchants, "it will not be necessary for
persons in the Northwest afflicted with
partial paralysis, rheumatism, lumbago,
skin diseases and other complaints to go
to the Hot Springs of Arkansas for
treatment and cure. Almost at the door
of Detroit lies this comparatively un
known water cure, the baths of which
will compare with famous European
establishments , where sick people are
wont to ' congregate. "Their discovery
was entirely accidental, too, by a party
of workmen who were boring a salt
well. Some of the men were troubled
with pulmonary complaints, others with
rheumatism, but after using the waters
for a week or so they experienced de
cided and as it turned out permanent
relief, and the knowledge* of their dis
covery was not long kept secret. It is
five weeks since I left Duluth for Mount
Clemens in quest of a remedy for a per
sistent attack of lumbago and am now
homeward bound infinitely better."

FOR EDUCATIONAL PURPOSE®
Rev. Holman's Logical Address-
Speeches by Bishop Fo.s and Other
-Yesterday was a red letter day in tiye
history of Mainline university, being
the occasion of the dedication of t"*
new and beautiful Hall of Science. Tl-<*
attendance was large, the university
chapel in 'Which the exercises were
held, being comfortably filled, while'
upon the rostrum were many of the;
state's eminent men. In the front
ranks sat Gov. A. B. McGill, Bishop Vr'
D. Foss and. Judge Brill; and at* _%.
rear, filling that part of the platforyi,
were President Bridgman, of llamlinc,
President McCurdy, of Macalester col
lege, Dr. Levi Gilbert, of Winona, Bey.
F. O. Holman, Dr. Brooks, Dr. J. F.
Chaffee, Dr. D. Wagner, Bey. S. B.
Warner, Bey. Stafford, Joseph Dean, of
Minneapolis, and M. G. Norton, of Wi
. Bishop Foss opened the exercises by
the announcement of the sixty-sixth
hymn, which was followed by a prayer
from Dr. McCurdy. The first address
was delivered by Bey. F. O. Holman,
pastor of. the First M. E. church, St.
Paul. He said:
.. ••Standing here in the presence of the
open Bible and this company of Chris
tian people, called together for this ded
ication, I feel, myself present at a very
significant occasion. Significant, not
because it is a strange experience, but
because it is a . familiar one. There ex
ists the notion that religion and science
are in an unreconcilable antagonism.
I am impressed that there is not to-day
any antagonism between religion- and
science. It is unquestionably true that
some religions i hold ideas opposed to
those of science. There have been
times in the history of the universe when
the majority of- scientists and the ma
jority of religious men differed, but that
there is any antagonism, I deny. Not
only is it -true that there is no
antagonism, but there never was.
In history you will find that science and
religion have always lived together.
Before Abraham left his home in Clial
dea the Mesopotamian priests watched
the stars at night and made their calcu
lations. From that day it has been true
that men who have founded universities
and great educational Institutions are
the men who have been most devoted to
God. Science and religion have been
most intimately connected. In the na
ture of the case there could be no antag
onism, but they work in realms different
from one another. Science is the exter
nal. It has its eyes outward and reads*
the message of God in rocks; it deals
with that which can be dealt with ex
perimentally. But that is not all there
is to man. Man is touched from within;
there comes to him visions that cannot
be seen with the eye, and it is this with
which religion has to do. Here, then,
is the sphere, of religion. "Wit n ' are
the voices to which religion listens. The
Bible will be brought carefully
under the investigation "of scien
tists, and their verdict in the last
analysis will be authoritative. We have
no book that will not submit itself to
criticism and when science has given Bs
last arid matured word, then the r orij_
will accept the verdict. The Bible as.a
book must be . carefully demonstrated
and then, science having given its ver
dict, religion goes, on into the field,
where science cannot enter. . There is a
realm where science cannot enter. That
bunch of roses may wither and die that
bird full of sweet song may cease, to
breath. You may assemble the scient
ists about those withered roses and thjp;
dead bird and can they again build the
rose or put song in that bird's mouth?
I tell you that in the presence of these
mysteries- of death,- scientists stand ah-**
solutely dumb and will ever so stand.
Science can tell you of the composition
of the body, but can it tell us aught of
what awaits us? This isa realm where
we stand waiting for voices from the
unknown. • How should religion look
upon science? : God, forbid that we
should dedicate a building in which
should be taught principles with a dog
matic disposition. I understand that
reverend . men will stand in yonder
building and,' in watching the stars,
will watch the manifestations of God in
ths eternal .world, and will watch for
God in the phenomenal. Does that
mean that a scientist should . not be a
religious man? God forbid!" .
Bey. Levi Gilbert, of Winona, dcliv- ;
ered an address on "Pursuit of Science
as an Aid to Worship." He spoke on
the likeness of the realm of nature to a
vast cathedral,' whose long-drawn aisles
are the valleys . and whose pillars are
the forest trees ; a place in which man
could worship God with a heart akin to
its maker. He spoke of nature, not as
a finished product of God, but as a prod
uct that God is* working out; and,
though we might criticise some unfin
ished part, we should finally see it fin
ished. -"Evolution," he said, "brings
us into a grander system. And * that
God in evolution proclaims himself
more than in any other way. The rocks
on Mount Sinai' gave a revelation of
God before the commandments were
written upon them. The whole end of
God is man, who comes and sits crowned
on the apex of creation. If that is so
there must be a spirit behind it all, and
we cannot express our hopes when it.
takes an eternity to make man and it
shall certainly take an eternity to sat
isfy man." • '■ >•■"■■
The next address was made by Dr. J.
F. Chaffe, who referred in a very
pleasing manner to some of the opinions
Bishop C.'D. Foss made a few closing
remarks, congratulating Hamline uni
versity on such an auspicious occasion,
and that she had dedicated four build
ings to the education of this state, build
ings that had cost .150,000. He spoke of
the late T. A. Harrison in a very touch
The conclusion of the services was
the dedicatory prayer made by the
bishop in the museum of the new hall.

MURDER IN A BELFRY.
Shocking Tragedy in the Tower of
an Old Spanish Cathedral.
] Some further particulars, says a Mad
rid dispatch to the London Times, have
I transpired with regard to the extaordi
' nary affray in the belfry tower; of Cor
; dova cathedral between Dr. Middleton
I and a Spanish Gypsy, which resulted in
the death of the latter. The doctor has
been for some years the medical attend
ant of Lord Deramore (better known,
perhaps, as Sir Thomas Bateson), who
was traveling . through Spain with his
j brother and nephew, on their way to
Tangier. . -
Dr. Middleton has made a declaration
to Mr. Poole, the British consul at Cor
dova, in which he states that he had be
,'gun to descend the narrow; winding
staircase of the tower, followed by his
Gypsy guide, a man named Heredia,
when suddenly the latter threw one arm
around the deponent's . neck, nearly
throttling him, while with the other
■■■ hand he took $2 from his pocket and
wrenched his stick away; whereupon
Dr. Middleton drew his .revolver and

After receiving the statement of Dr.
Middle ton the consul sent him to his
hotel, with a servant of the consulate.
Lord Deramore came on to Madrid to
lay the case before Sir Clare Ford, the
British minister, who has already taken
active steps in the matter. Consul Poole
is watching the legal proceedings on the
spot, in order to see that the prisoner is
properly treated, for the judge ordered
the doctor's arrest, pending the usual
formalities of Castilian procedure. The
facts of the case are so clear, and the
antecedents of Heredia are so noto
riously bad, that even in the absence of
witnesses of the affray, Dr. Middleton
issure-to be released shortly on the
ground that he acted in self defense.
All the Madrid papers admit that this
must be the result.
Quebec Printers on a Strike.
; Q . rBBBC, Jan. s.— The printers on all
the French papers here are on a strike
for nine hours per day and increased
pay. The English papers having
adopted the nine-hour system are not
affected. Some of the French papers
are printing half sheets, while others
have temporarily suspended publica
tion. - The strike has given rise to fierce
attacks by the French papers upon
Cardinal Gibbons' advocacy of the
Knights of . Labor, while the action of
Cardinal Taschereau in condemning the
knights in Canada is warmly com
; mended. Fears are entertained, that
the striks may extend to the boot and
shoe manufacturers here.
