Col. William Crooks Gives the
History of the Building of
the First Railroad in (Minne
sota, and D. S. B. Johnston
Tells of Minnesota Journal
ism After the Territorial
Period—Cf the Scores of
(Newspapers Then Founded
but Half a Dozen Are Still In
Last evening was devoted by the
Minnesota Historical society to review
ing the early newspaper history and
the first railroad building operations
An interesting feature of the even
ing programme was the reading by
Secretary Warren Upham of a paper
prepared by Col. William Crooks, now
of Portland, Or., but for many years a
resident of St. Paul. Col. (.'rooks was
a particularly active factor in the
building of the first railroad line in the
upper Mississippi, which constituted
the real beginning of the Great North
ern system. He thus describes the en
The Brat railroad building in this upper
Mississippi region was done under the
charter of the Minnesota & Pacific Rail
road company, which was succeeded by
the St. Paul & Pacific Railroad company,
and afterwards passed under control of
the St. Paul. Minneapolis <X: Manitoba
Railway company. The St. Paul <fe Pacific
company also controlled a line from St.
Paul to VVinona. in the. valley of the Mis
A land grant was made by the T'nited
States government to aid the construction
of this railroad, and. by a ruling of the
interior department at Washington, the
company, under the grant to Minnesota,
was declared entitled to 120 sections ol
land, In advance of construction.
In 1557 the line of railway was located
from Stillwater by way of St. Paul and
St. Anthony l'alls. to a point near Big
Stone lake, on the western boundary ot
the state, and was also located from the
falls of St. Anthony to Crow Wing by the
way of St. Cloud.
In 1858. under a contract with Selah
Chamberlain, of Cleveland, Ohio, sixty
two and one-half miles of the road from
St. Paul north were graded and bridged*
and the cross ties for a large portion ot
the line were delivered. The right of way
was, In the main, secured by the. com
pany. The work, however, was suspended
owing to a battle made by interested or
badly disposed people against the faith
and credit of the state of Minnesota, ren
dering powerless the grantees of the
states credit, who held its bonds under
the provision of the $5,000,000 loan bill, sc
Matters remained in a condition of un
certainty as to the prosecution of the
work upon this and other lines of railroad
in the state, until the people, having lost
faith, were turning their faces eastward
in abandonment of their instituted settle
ment. It appeared necessary at such s
time to make an appeal to the legislature
in order to keep alive the fianchise of the
company by- providing against forfeiture
or merger of its privileges. The com
pany took this appeal in the winter of
1860-61. and the legislature granted to it
an extension of time. Meantime, negotia
tions had been conducted by the Hon.
Edmund Rice, who was the head and
front, and the heart and soul, of every ef
fort put forth to rescue the state from a
condition which simply meant i-uiu to all.
Mr. Crooks then reviews negotiations
for capitalization of the proposed roads,
which on the eve of successful con-j
summation were interrupted by the
breaking out nf the Civil war. Then he
Just at this time, however, I made the
acquaintance, in New York, quite acci
dentally, of Messrs. Winters, Harshman
and Drake, residents of Ohio. These gen
tlemen, with the exception of Mi-. Drake,
were bankers and capitalists, and were in
New York looking for some investment.
On account of a long acquaintance with
Col. De Graff they were negotiating with
him in reference to building the Winona
& St. Peter railroad; but. as the colonel
informed me that they had not money
enough to accomplish all that was neces
sary in the case of this road, he intro
duced them to me, believing that I could
interest them in the construction of the
St. Paul & Pacific railroad between St.
Paul and St. Anthony Falls.
After consulting with Mr. Rice and
having had conferences with the geytle
men aforesaid, an agreement was reached
whereby they were to furnish means of
building the railroad from St. Paul to the
Falls of St. Anthony. They were to visit
St. Paul at an early date and, if an ex
amination of the whole business proved
to be as good and fair as had been rep
resented, they were to enter into a
formal contract and. if disappointed in the
examination, we obligated ourselves to re
imburse them for their time and expense
in visiting Minnesota.
In due time the gentlemen arrived and
made a careful examination of the line
of the road, its legal status, etc., and
were willing to state that we had not told
one-half of what we might have stated
with entire veracity, and thereupon they
proceeded to deposit with the governor of
the state, as required by law. $14,000 and
entered into a contract with the railroad
company, as heretofore stated.
They were to receive for the work of
completing the grade, track, and the fur
nishing of rolling stock, first mortgage
gold bonds, drawing 8 per cent interest
2J\ ™unning' twenty years, at the rate of
!i >a?w, PP r ,mileV makin S a» aggregate of
$1 _'<».000 in bonds, and they were further
to receive all the lands to*" which at that
time the company could make title ag
gregating 76,800 acres, which body of'land
commenced in the county of Hemiepin and
extended northwesterly through what is
today properly the garden of Minnesota
There were difficulties encountered in car
rying this agreement into effect, because
of some right of w^y which had not been
secured in the city of St. Paul This
caused a delay of nearly a year from the
time the work was commenced in the fall
of 1861; but further legislation during the
winter of 1861-1862 enabled the company
to proceed, and the line was finished and
put into operation between St. Paul and
the Falls of St. Anthony in the early
days of July, 1862.
Under the provisions of this contract
two locomotives and some passenger and
freight cars were furnished. This line was
laid with iron rails of forty-five pounds to
the yard, steel rails being unknown at
that time. The locomotives were of only
twenty-five tons capacity, wood burners
The hrst locomotive engine was named
alter myself and the second after Mi-
Edmund Rice. These engines were the
first that turned a wheel in the state of
Discusses Early Journalism.
The - principal paper of the evening
was by D. S. B. Johnston, being the
third of a series on pioneer newspapers.
■The title was: "Minnesota Journalism
at the Close of the Territorial Period."
Mr. Johnston said in part:
.The old-time editor was a thorough
Pioneer He helped lay the foundations
Minnesota deep and strong and was as
honorable in his calling as the early merc
hant, doctor, lawyer or business man.
Politically he was a partisan, a*l a firm
and honest believer in the adage: "To
the victor belong the spoils." To keep
body and soul in touch he needed the in
frequent doles of the mail, letting adver
tisements and state county printing of
territorial times to supplement his at
tenuated returns from subscriptions, ad
vertising and job work, and when his
THE ST. PAUL GLOBE. TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 9. 1904
D. S. B. JOHNSTON,
Historian of Pioneer Journalism in
party was in power he carefully corralled
Where a party fight was on he was
ready and usually pretty rough; where a
public or party 'service was needed he
was expected to be the pack horse to
carry supplies. In the community at large
he was the genial, good-natured squash
advertiser, for which he usually got the
squash. The situation was rather broadly
described by an early editor who printed
this notice: "Our family being now set
tled in housekeeping, we will take for
subscriptions anything we can wear or
that hogs can eat."
A man of infinite resources was the old
time editor. He was a rare combination of
editorial writer, typesetter and printer's
devil. As a rule he had the spirit and
grit of an early editor of the Freeborn
County Standard. When some miscreant
whom he had scored tried to even up by
stealing the lever of his hand press he
set up a scalding note explanatory of the
delay in getting out his paper, unlocked
the editorial form_ put it in and then
worked off his edition with a fence rail.
But amid all his hustling wear and tear,
no editor of any class, time or kind pre
served a larger measure of integrity. I
could name some of those sturdy pioneer
men who threw up their jobs rather than,
support men or measures dictated by
boodling newspaper owners.
Do not understand by this tribute to his
common honesty that I praise the early
editor as a saint. He often said and did
things that would neither sound or look
well inside a church, but it was never
said of him, as it has been too often said
of the modern editor, that it was his
vocation to "Raise hell and sell news
papers." Nor did he pander to the animal
instincts of human nature by watching
the dirty debris of jjociety to see where
the devil would break out next and have
a reporter on hand to tell about it.
Giving the modern newspaper full cred
it for the mighty power it wields for good
in the affairs of men, the scandals it
much too often prints spread moral
disease among the young, with tremen
dous counteracting effect. It is human na
ture to want to see into hell as far as
possible, but there is a place in the way
where the bars should be put up before
our boys and girls and not moved until
they come to years of discretion.
Mr. Johnston then reviewed some
what in detail the history of the news
papers which flournished in Minnesota
in the later territorial days, with com
ments as to the characteristics of their
editors. Of the transportation facili
ties of that day he gave this reminis
One day in June, 1856, there came
through the open windows of the printing
room of the St. Anthony Express, a sue*
cession 'of distant long-drawn squalls
"The Red river carts are coming." some
one said, and I went out to see them.
Winding along the Red river trail, back
of St. Anthony, came a fantastic proces
sion of cans nearly a mile long.
They were coarse, two-wheel affairs.
Each was fitted with a strong pair of
thills. Between the shafts an ox walked
in a harness of rawhide. There was a
back strap or saddle and belly band, with
loops, to hold the thills, and a heavy
collar to which was attached a pair of
wide traces made of untanned buffalc
hide. A halter of rawhide completed the
harness outfit. The wheels, .with not a
particle of iron about them, turned on
wooden axles, and as they passed the
East side cemetery made noise enough to
wake the dead.
This uncouth train, managed by ath
letic half-breed drivers, who were dressed
in a dirt-begrimed mixture of mackinac
blanket and tanned and untanned skins
and sashed around their waists with scar
let, had come from Pembina. They were
bringing down from their far northern
homes furs and IndianjTiimmed buffalo
robes, which they expected to trade in St.
Paul for groceries, hardware and bright
hued calicoes, beads and other trinkets
for the females of their families. In 1858
about 600 of these carts came down and
carried back about 400 cooking stoves in
their return loads. The trips of these
trains took about thirty days each way
But Few Survive.
He said in conclusion:
Of the seventy-six weekly territorial
newspapers noted, only six are now living
These are the St. Paul Pioneer, now the
Pioneer Press; the Winona Republican,
Mantorville Express. Rew Wing Republic
an, Wabasha Herald and the Chatfield
Democrat, now the News-Democrat Of
the seven dailies only one, the St. Paul
Pioneer now the Pioneer Press, still lives.
Three of the six weeklies, the Red Wing
Republican, the Wabasha Herald and the
Chatfield Democrat, were started in Sep
tember IBoi. and, so far as I can learn,
went through that trying financial storm
without missing a number.

SPATES KICKS AT
LINCOLN CLUB'S DOOR
Seventh Ward Republican's
Application for Member
ship Is Laid Over.
S. Pope Spates, the' Seventh ward
Republican who is responsible- for the
attempt to organize an "advisory com
mittee" for the purpose of dictating the
policy of the Republican party in St.
Paul and Ramsey county, is said to
have abandoned his pet project of ma
nipulating the party vote from his vest
It is stated that Mr. Spates will now
attempt to secure recognition as a
"party leader" from other sources, hay
ing been compelled to admit that, his
attempt to organize an advisory com
mittee was a failure.
Following this rumor yesterday came
the announcement last night that Mr.
Spates had made application for mem
bership In the Lincoln club. His name
was read at the meeting of the club las*
night, and upon motion, was laid over
for two weeks.
There is considerable speculation
among the members of the Lincoln club
as to the motives of Mr. Spates in ap
plying for membership in that club,
which ia krtown to have been openly
opposed to his bold, yet unsuccessful
attempt, to secure contrel of the Re
publican par^y by securing recognition
for his so*-£«ul?d advisory committee,
which husfr?ev#r had more than a dozen
"If Mr. Spates has any Idea that he
can come into the Lincoln club and
dictate the policies of the club, he will
find that he is sadly mistaken," said a
prominent member of the Lincoln club
last night. "He is not exactly the kind
of a Republican that the Lincoln club
would desire to have as its dictator."
Not Hailed With Delight.
However, there were a number of the
Lincoln club members who gave it as
their opinion last night that Spates was
trying to get into the Lincoln club to
gain the very ends which the advisory
committee failed to produce, and his
application for membership was not
hailed with any poticeable degree of
enthusiasm by the Lincolnites last
Mr. Spates originated the idea of or
ganizing an advisory committee, and he
attempted to carry out plans for such
an organization some weeks ago by
holding a series of meetings at the
It was his object to form an organi
zation whose duty it would be to direct
the city and county, and even the ward
and precinct organizations of the Re
publican party, but his presumption
that the party organization was in
competent to handle the affairs of the
party was not kindly received by the
members of the organization, nor was
it ever considered seriously by the rank
and file of the party. The result of
this distrust in Mr. Spates' plans was
the refusal of Republicans to attend
his meetings, and last week when there
were but ten people present it was pre
dicted that the advisory committee
was nearing its finish.
Mr. Spates naade one last effort to
secure a footing for his organization
He- selected what he called an execu
tive committee, the duty of which was
to pass upon the fitness of all candi
dates for office at the hands of the
Republican party and to give instruc
tions along any other line where it
appeared to Mr. Spates that the city
and county organization was not ca
pable of acting.
Spates' Final Plan Fails.
This committee was made up of well
known Republicans, whose names were
expected to relieve the committee of
the distrust and odium which had at
tached to it, but the plan failed
The committee had been named by
Mr. Spates without the formality of
conferring with the parties named, and
the announcement of the personnel of
the committee not only caused consid
erable surprise to those named upon
it, but it was also productive of a num
ber of indignant declarations by mem
bers of the committee that they would
have nothing to do with Mr. Spates
and his advisory committee.
One or two members of the commit-
t ec, Who are acknowledged followers
of Spates, took the matter seriously
and attempted to call a meeting of the
executive committee, but their efforts
were met with indignant refusals and
jeers, and all hope of securing a meet
ing of the committee was given up
And now, Mr. Spates is said to have
determined to join the Lincoln club
and his application was handed to a
member of the club yesterday It was
announced last night by members of
the club that if the application of Mr
Spates was favorably acted upon he
would be given to understand that the

MANAGER HAYS IS CHARGED WITH
VIOLATING THE BUILDING CODE
Building inspector Ellerbe
Out Warrant on
Ground That Spectators Were
Allowed to Occupy the Ais!es
of the Grand Opera House at
the Matinee Performance
Saturday—Defense iVlay Con
tend That Code Applies Only
to Houses Since Constructed.
"Warrants were sworn out yesterday
agpinst Theodore L. Hayes and Thomas
B. McCormick, manager and assistant
manager of the Grand opera house, by
Building Inspector F. H. Ellerbe on
complaints charging that on Saturday
afternoon last persons were allowed to
occupy the aisles during the matinee
performance at the Grand.
"The aisles of the gallery were espe
cially filled with men and boys." said
Mr. Ellerbe, "and the balcony and
lower floor aisles were occupied. I had
three witnesses with me and we made
an inspection of each floor. In the gal
lery there were about 200 persons in the
aisles, seated upon the steps."
The complaint charges a violation of
section 170 of the building code, which
provides that "all aisles and passage
ways in said buildings shall be kept
free from camp stools, chairs, sofas and
other obstructions, and no person shall
be allowed to stand in or occupy any
of the aisles or passageways during any
performance, service, exhibition, lec
ture, concert, ball, or any other public
May Claim Exemption.
"The contention may be raised that
this section does not apply to the
Grand opera house or any other theater
in St. Paul which was in operation be
fore the adoption of the code," said Mr.
Ellerbe. "The word 'said' in the sec
tion prohibiting standing room, relates
back to the first section of the division
of the code concerning theaters. That
section declares that 'every theater,
opera house, auditorium, or other build
ing intended to be»used for theatrical
or operatic purposes, or for public en
tertainment of any kind, where stage
scenery and apparatus is employed,
hereafter erected in the city of St.
Paul, shall be built to comply with the
requirements of this code.' It may be
argued that, as the first #eetion speci
fies that the code shall apply to such
theaters as shall 'hereafter be erected,'
the theaters which were built before the
code was adopted are excepted from its
provisions and that the provisions of
Section 17», declaring that it shall regu
late 'said' buildings, are inoperative as
far as the Grand or any other theater
in St. Paul is concerned.

Jackson County District Court
Imposes This Penalty for
Game Law Violation.
Fines of $20,000 each have been im
posed by the district court of Jackson
county upon William Kerr and Robert
Poole, who were some weeks ago con
victed of having been implicated in a
wholesale attempt to smuggle game
from this state across the line into
lowa. In default of payment of the
amount of the fines Kerr has the alter
native of 300 days in jail and Poole of
200 days in jail.
This announcement was contained in
a telegram received yesterday by S. F.
Fullerton, executive agent of the state
game and fish commission.
Largest Seizure Every Made.
The prosecution of Kerr and Poole
grew out of the largest seizure of game
ever made by the authorities of the
state. This was in August last, when
Capt. William Bird and several other
agents of the game and fish commis
sion, with the sheriff of Jackson county,
intercepted a shipment of 2,496 ducks
and other game birds en route from
Lakefield, this state, to a point in lowa
near the state line. The birds were
traced to Kerr's commission store in
Lakefield, and he and Poole were in
dicted under the state game laws.
The indictment charged the attempt
to unlawfully ship 2,000 birds only, and
it is on this that the fines are based at
the minimum prescribed by law, which
is $10. At the maximum smn named in
the law, $25, the fines against Poole and
Kerr would have been $50,000 each.
The defendants have given notice of
appeal to the supreme court.

Manager of the Grand Opera House.
twisted so as to exempt all the theaters
in St. Paul which were built before the
code went into effect, the intent is
plain that none of the violations men
tioned in the section should be allowed.
The question involved is one of main
tenance and not of construction. If the
court allows the managers to escape
through this loophole I think I can se
cure a conviction on a state law."
The objection to the present building
code which Mr. Ellerbe thinks may be
raised, was recognized by the council
committee which has charge of the re
vision of the sections 1 elating to thea
ters. Among the amendments that City
Engineer Rundlett was Instructed to
draw up was one making all sections
on theaters specifically applicable to
"The Grand opera house has a seat-
Ing capacity of 1909, distributed as fol
lows: Main floor, 689; balcony, 472;
gallery, 700, and boxes, 48," said Mr.
Ellerbe. "The Grand is a large house,
and nearly the size of the Iroquois. It
is a safe theater, but persons should
not be allowed to occupy aisles, espe
cially in the gallery, which is the most
dangerous place in case of a panic."
"It has been customary to allow the
boys to sit in the aisles in the gallery,"
said Assistant Manager McCormiek,-of
the Grand, last night. "We would have
prohibited them from sitting there if
we had been notified to do so. The
house was not overcrowded Saturday
afternoon, as my records will show."
"It is nonsensical to suppose that we
would crowd the house," said Theo
dore L. Hays, last night. "There was
not a great crowd at the matinee per
formance, and every possible safe
guard has been provided for handling
many more people. We have not been
required to refuse standing room, and
there is no danger whatever in stand
ing up a few people in aisles so com
modious as those of the Grand.
"I confess that I am astonished at
this prosecution, for we have even an
ticipated and gone further that the re
quirements of the building laws, anrl
are now working on safety appliances
of our own in the house."
