There have been no claims in the
Mille Lacs reservation held for cancel
lation, nor have the first steps been
taken looking towards the cancellation
of any claim or claims. Any settler
who has fully complied with the law
need have no fears. Of course, the
railroads may make a fight for the odd
sections, but the railroad corporations
are not running the present adminis
tration. As far as we know, the set
tlers in the so-called Mille Lacs reser
vationand we know nine-tenths of
them personallyhave complied with
the law every respect, and are bona
fide residents of Mille Lacs county.
Mr. T. H. Caley has been for a
couple of weeks a very sick
man. He is suffering from a complica
tion of ailments superinduced by the
injury he received last spring. Dr.
Kimball, of Minneapolis, has paid him
several professional calls in !ne past
week, and Dr. Tarbox, of this place is
also in attendance. At the present
writing there is a slight change for the
better in Mr. Caley's condition, and
his friends continue to hope for the
best. Tom Caley, like everybody else,
has his failings, but he is a man who
has ever been foremost in promoting
the material interests of Princeton, a
man this community could ill afford to
"Why don't you report John Brown's
case in the ]ustice court?" "Why
don't you give Jim Smith fits for being
drunk and disorderly?" "Why don't
you publish all the items regardless of
anybody's feelings?" The above are
samples of the interrogatories pro
pounded to the editor verbally every
week. The UNION IS not a public sewer
for ventilating private spleen. If some
poor devil stumbles and falls occasion
ally we do not consider it our duty to
parade his disgrace in the columns of
UNION. NO good purpose would be
subserved thereby. There is consider
able charity in our "make up." We
do not ask any man what we shall pub
lish or what we shall not publish,
neither are we in the habit of apologiz
ing for what we publish or what we do
not publish. News items we are al
ways glad to print. Our opinions are
our own, and we are the sole judge of
what should or should not appear in
the columns of the UNION. There is
no man in Mille Lacs county rich
enough to purchase our opinions.
Tw Buried Cities.
In the first century after Christ,
there stood near the beautiful Bay of
Naples to cities, Herculaneum and
Pompeii, which were noted through all
the Roman world for their fashionable
luxury. In the year '79, during a tre
mendous eruption of Vesuvius, these
cities disappeared from human view as
completely as Sodom and Gomorrah.
It was commonly reported that both
cities were overwhelmed with a flood
of molten lava, and the occurrence has
been vividly portrayed by Bulwer in
"The Last Days of Pompeii." March
24, 1737, the ruins of Herculaneum
were discovered, and it was then found
that this city had been destroyed by an
immense flood of water which carried
along enormous quantities of mud,
tufa and ashes. This explains in some
degree, why so few people escaped
from Herculaneum, while thousands
had time to flee from Pompeii, which
was buried first under a gradual shower
of ashes. Mistakes and errors in re
gard to things out of sight are excusa
ble, but 1 he people of this day and sec
tion are two well "informed about the
railroads to commit the error of taking
any other line than the Burlington
when going on a journey. For rates,
and tickets, to any point via this line,
apply to your home ticket agent, or
writa to W. J. C. Kenyon, Gen. Pass.

An Explanation.
The article on the congressional situ
ation which you copied from the Even
ing Tribune in your issue of March
10th, was not written by me. At my
request a friend wrote it. It was
hastily copied by me and sent to the
Tribune. lam sure no reflections on
any one were intended in any part of the
same. Yours,
The Late Joseph D. Sawyer.
Brief mention of the death of Joseph
D. Sawyer was made in the UNION of
the 10th inst. He died at his home in
Foreston on the evening of the 8th of
March the funeral services were held
at the M. E. church in this village on
the following Friday, and the remains
were laid to rest in Oak Knoll ceme
tery the same day.
Deceased was born in Hogansburg,
N. Y., May 1st, 1851. His boyhood
days were spent on the farm at the old
homestead later on he farmed on his
own account and conducted a hotel in
bis native town for six years. He came
west in the spring of 1883, and located
in the town of Greenbush this county.
In 1888 he removed to Foreston, where
he carried on the hotel business until
the date of his death. Joe Sawyer, as
he was familarly called, was a diamond
in the rough. He would go to any
length to serve a friend and he had no
love for his enemies. He was kind to
his wife and children and they, in com
mon with a host of symphathizing
friends, mourn his death. Peace to his
Deat of Mrs. Frank Morehouse.
The demise of Mrs. Frank More
house, which had been momentarily ex
pected for weeks previously, occurred
at the St. Cloud Reformatory, last
Thursday, and the remains were
brought to Princeton for interment,
Saturday. The funeral services were
held at the Congregational church,
Sunday afternoon, and an immense
concourse of friends and neighbors ex
pressed their sympathy by their pres
Mrs. Morehouse was the only daugh
ter of Mr. and Mrs. Timothy Pratt, of
this place. She was born in the ad
joining town of Baldwin, July 7th,
1866, and was married to Mr. Frank
Morehouse June 26th, 1884. One child,
Orville, aged seven years, and her hus
band survive her. The illness which
caused Mrs. Morehouse's death can be
traced back to a year ago, when she
suffered from a severe attack of la
grippe she never fully recovered her
health consumption set in and then
there was no help for her.
Mr. Morehouse speaks in the high
est praise of Superintendent Meyers
and family for the many kindnesses
shown his wife during her long illness.
Mrs. Meyers and daughters were espe
cially kind and considerate. Mr.
Meyers granted Messrs. Liberty Clark
and A. Z. Norton, the only other em
ployes of the Reformatory from
Princeton, leave of absence for several
days to accompany Mr. Morehouse home
with the remains of his wife. Mr.
Morehouse returned to the Reforma
tory yesterday to resume his duties as
chief cook of that institution.
Thinks the Mille Lacs Indians "Will go
to White Earth Peaceably.
Hon. D. S. Hall, chairman of the
Chippewa Indian commission, returned
from a week's sojourn in the Mille Lacs
lake country, Monday. He was in a
decidedly hopeful frame of mind, and
here is the way he talked to a St. Paul
"The commission," he said, "is using
every effort to induce the Mille Lacs
Indians to move, and I believe that
they will soon decide to move. They
have got the idea that this move to
White Earth is simply preliminary to
another one which will take them to
the Turtle mountain reservation in
North Dakota. A great many of the
more intelligent members of the tribe
are ready and anxious to go to White
Earth, but there is an organized band
opposed to it. The members of this
are encouraged by people who do not
want them to go. These people tell
them they do not need to move unless
they want to. If everybody would tell
them the truth and describe the situa
tion as it really is, there would be no
difficulty in the matter. Those who
understand the benefits that will arise
from the change are satisfied and
ready to move."
"What will be the result if the In
dians do not choose to move soon?"
"Well, I do not like to say anything
about that," answered the commis
sioner. "Of course you know these In
dians have no land of their own, and
the settlers are coming in very fast.
The Indians have always made sugar
in that country, and when the season
for that arrives there is likely to be
some trouble, although I am inclined
to think that the Indians will not
molest the settlers. But the trouble
is, the Indians are now living on some
claims The have always
been a peaceful class of Indians, noted
for their friendly feeling toward the
whites. Even in the outbreak of 1862
they remained friendly, and for that
reason they have been allowed to re
main on that reservation during their
good behavior, but now the settlers are
crowding them so harl that something
must be done."
"But the commission has the power
to remove the Mille Lacs by force, has
it not?" persisted the Globe man.
"We do not desire to exercise such
authority, even if we have it," replied
Mr. Hall, rather evasively. "The
most intelligent are fully persuaded
that they ought to go in fact that
there is nothing else for them to do.
I am very much interested in the In
dians, and my interests are all with
them for their benefit. I want them to
go because it is the best move they can
make, and the further fact that there
is no other course left open to them.
I think that wise council will prevail
in the near future and all of the Mille
Lacs will go peaceably to White Earth.
Were it not for evil advisers we would
soon be able to convince the Indians
that it is best that they go, but, as
things stand, it may take some time
