the objects and purposes of the Twin

city, yet every mquiry calculated to cau3a
light to be thrown on a subject which is
to be of so mujh concern to the public,
whose direct enterprise it is aimed
to rn-ke it, should be welcomed.
Bleuer's banl will furnish music.
The committees which have brought
this enterprise to its present state

river, below tbe Cbippewa. The legis
la lure of Wisconsin, it will be remember

ing this matter, seting forth that the Beef
Sh ugh Boom company had caused the
destruction of the government dam at
the mouth of what is known aa West
Newton slough, and turned the river into
a log driving stream, to
tbe detriment cf navigation, and
Mr. Coburn 'will offer a resolution
calling upon the secretary of war, the at
torney general acd other officials to fur
nibh to fcorigrets without delay all tbe
information in their possession respect
ing the work done on the river at this
point by the government. It is possible
that, if it should be thought necessary, a
special investigating committee may be
appointed on th 3 part of the house.
The memorial referred to above which
was sent to cimgress by the Wisconsin
legislature, together with a similar me
morial from the Minnesota legislature, re
sulted in defeating tbe bill then before
congress which was intended to con
solidate the pe wer of the Mississippi
Logging company on the Missis
sippi. Tbe Minnesota memorial cot
only demanded the defeat of this
measure, but also demanded tbe repeal of
the act of 1880 (lathered by Congressman
Dunne!!, of Minnesota,) which granted
the original privileges on the Mississippi
to the Mississippi Logging company by
which the Weycrliauser syndicate was en
abled to promptly transfer its log rafting
operath ns from Beef Slough to West
Newton and to n.n logs loose out of tbe
Chippewa into tte Mississippi and into

Taylor's famous cam ard low measures in
tbe last Wisconsin legislature, by which

It was an audience betlttin tbe talent

and enthusi ism which greeted CkraMorris
in her presentation of "ftenee de Mony"
at Harper's theitre last evening. To gt
into an e'aborate review of the play with
which Miss Morris delighted her audience
last evening would be superfluous.
Suffice is it to sy thl tho actress' lustre
as ft star in the firm iment of the noit
gifted queens of tbe stage has not dimin
ished in the leant. The character of
"Renee" is one admirably adapted to her
ability and i leas of perfection in tbe
dramatic art. The plot of the play
briefly stated, treat of the self- s crificicg
filial devotion of "Renee," in which kbe
does not falter even wben it comes to
parting with busband and ricbe9 and
honor. The charae'ers of the supporting
company are splendidly distributed, and
icclude, J. M. Clvi'le as "Count de
Moray," W. C. Kelly as "Claude Burel,"
