Arthur Little, of Fon du Lac, Wis., who declined a $2,500 call from Plymouth Church, of this city, has accepted the pastorate of New England Church, Chicago. We think Mr. Lit tle has made a "little" mistake, as he could not have found abetter or more liberal congre gation than our friends up on Summit avenue. But may the Chicago olkB had the longest purse, and hence made the loudest call. But the Plymouth folks should not despair. "There's as good fish," &c. At tho Metropolitan: Z. B. Clarke, Benson J. A.

He commenced business on Jackson streot by entering a confectionary store and carrying away a quantity of candies. His next raid was on the butcher shop of L. W. Luley, 88 Jackson street, where he captured some meat and sans age, telling the proprietor to take a back seat. In the evening he made two attempts to rob Stephen Holgate, on Seventh street, the second time assaulting him, demanding his watch and chain. Officer Brisette finally picked him up in a saloon on Wabashaw street. He was ar raigned-this morning before the Municipal Court, on charge of disorderly conduct. The case was continued till to-day at 10 o'clock a.m. State Firemen's Convention. The annual State Firemen's Convention will be convened at 10 o'clock to-day, at Faribault. Delegates left this city by the 6:50 train. Ac companying Chief R. O. Strong were F. Brewer, G. Freeman, T. Conway, P. H. Smith, F. D. Hall, M. Marxen, G. B. Bcrge, Jos. McGeehan, Peter Heck, J. Lunkenheimer, Jr., H. Jansen, delegates, and a number of other gentlemen. Immediately after the convention the Fireman's State Life Assurance Society will hold their an nual meeting and elect officers for the ensuing year. In honor of the occasion the Faribault fire department will give a ball to-night. THE MYSTIC TLEi AZrXTTAL COMXUyiCATIOF, A. F. A A. The Lodge of Sorrow in Memory of Grand Master Braden and Grand Tyler Rlchard son-Facts Relative to the Growth and Progress of the OrderAll Matters of In terest to the Fraternity. The twenty-fifth grand annuar'communica tion of the Grand Lodge of Masons of Minne sota begins at noon to-day in the Masonic Hall, in this city, and from present indications it is safe to venture the assertion that the attend ance will he larger than upon any previous oc casion in the history of the craft in this juris diction. Already members from every section of the State have arrived, and many more will reach here upon this morning's trains. The Grand Lodge is the supreme authority of the Order, and its annual sessions have been looked forward to as occasions, not only of yearly re union of FRIENDS AND BROTHERS for social en joyment, but as the particular periods at which the highest and most vital interests of this anciont and well-beloved institution can be best considered and best promoted. Upon these occasions it is that the Grand Lodge officersthe highest exponents of authority in the craftare elected and vested with the ap propriate insignia of their position and author ity. At these times also, are laws enacted for tho guidance of the craft, abuses and errors of subordinate lodges reviewed and corrected, and all other matters relating to the WELFARE AND GOOD GOVERNMENT of the order considered and settled. Thus it is that to the zealous craftsman, these annual communications are alwaj looked to with un abated interest, and seldom fail to Becure a full representation from the four corners of the State, of the children of the "Mystic Tie." The present Grand Communication is, how ever, one of more than ordinary interest and concern. Within the year just passed, the "in- satiate archer," death, has entered the ranks of the Brotherhood and "DISPLACED THE LIGHT" of two of the officers of the Grand Lodge, Grand Master, J. C. Braden, and Grand Tiler. Ahira Richardson, both trusty and well-beloved bervants of the Order. LODGE OF BORROW. In the tenets of Masonry, it is a duty stren uously inculcated that to the memory of a de ceased Mason, some kind of demonstration of .respect and sorrow bhould ever be paid by the brethren, and Lodges of Sorrow have been long instituted in the canons of the craft, as the means whereby this manifestation should be made apparent. Thib duty is therefore incum bent upon tho present meeting of the Grand Lodge, and accordiugl this evening at 7:30 o'clock, a Lodge of Sorrow will be held in Masonic Hall, under the auspices of Rose Croix (Rose t.*.) of the Ancient Accepted Scottish Rite, (A.-, and A.\S.*.R.\), in memoriam of Brothers Braden and Richaidson, the latter of whom was for a quarter of a century Tiler of the Grand and Subordinate lodges in this city. Eulogies, upon this solemn occasion, will be epoken by Grand Orator R. A. Jones of Roches ter, H. R. Wells of Preston, J. H. Baker of Mankato, Rev. Charles Griswold of Anoka, H. N. Castle of Stillwater, and George A. Camp of Minneapolis. Appropriate music will also be furnished by R. 8. Munger and Professors Lieb, Wood and Buckalew. THE SOMBRE HUE OF MOURNING. The walls of Masonic Hall have already been neatly and tastily draped with black and white cloth, as has also the furniture of the lodge room. Past Grand Master Pierson, the oldest Past Grand Master in the State, will preside at the Lodge of Sorrow, assisted by Past Grand Masters C. W. Nash and G. W. Cooley of Min neapolis. As provided in the ritual, the Lodge of Sorrow can consist of but twenty-seven participants, who must all be of the Scottish Rite, and is only hold upon the death of distinguibhed Masons. The forthcoming occasion to-night will be the second instance of its being held in Minnesotathe firet being in 1869 upon the death of John Mott, who was, at the timo of his decease. Treasurer of Ancient Landmark Lodge of this city. Inasmuch as the occasion to-night is in memory of the death of the first Grand Master of the State who has died in office, and of the Grand Tyler Richardson, who had continuously for twenty-five years, since the organization of the Grand Lodge, filled the duties of that position in the body which now |wj-a i/lio loci bclmiw soapaai to hift mPTnory and worth, the Lodge of Sorrow, will doubtless prove one of the most interesting oc casions in the history of Minnesota Masonry, and one well worth seeing. THE GRAND LODGE. The Grand Lodge of Minnesota consists of one hundred and twentyShine subordi nate Lodgeseach subordinate lodge be ing represented in the Grand Lodge by three delegates. In 1852just twenty-five years agothe Grand Lodge of Minnesota WBB organized in this city with three subordinate lodges only, all three aggregating a member ship, at that date, of less than two hundred members. To-day the returns from the sev eral lodges alieady received at the office of the Grand Secretary Bhow an aggregate member ship of over eight thousand. This fact suffi ciently illustrates the prosperity of the An cient Order, and bespeaks in trumpet tones its admirable and beneficent qualities. THE SUBORDINATE LODGES. Of the subordinate lodges, Ancient Land mark of this city is the largest in point of membershipthe second being Cataract of St. Anthony's Falls, and the third, Hennepin No. 4 of Minneapolis. Winona No. 18, Rochester No. 21, Faribault No. 9, Minneapolis No. 19, St. Paul No. 8, 8t. John No. 1 of Stillwater, Mankato No. 12, Cornelian at Lake City, Fidelity at Austin, Star in the East at Owatonna, are the names of some of the more important lodges in the localities named, each and every one of which contains an active membership of over 120 working brethren of the craft. A GLIMPSE AT THE PAST. The first Masonic Lodge established in Min nesota was St. Paul No. 1, in the fall of 1849, receiving its charter from the Grand Lodge of Ohio. The next was Cataract of St. Anthony's Falls, which was authorized by the Grand Lodge of Illinois, and the third was St. John's, of Stillwater, which derived its authority from the Grand Lodge of Wisconsin. At the organiza tion of the Grand Lodge of Minnesota in 1858, the numbers of the lodges were assigned accord ing to priority of charters. Thus St. John's Lodge, of Stillwater, although the last organ ized of the three above-named received the first charter, and hence became No. 1, while Cataract of St. Anthony, was made No. 2, and St. Paul Lodge, the first organized in the Territory, be came No. 3. Starting out in 1853 with three lodges, the num ber had increased in 1860 to thirty. Ten years later found seventy-eight lodges in active opera tion in the State, which number in seven years more has grown into 129 chartered lodges, and four more under dispensation. In all this time, extending over a quarter of a century, there have been but eight Grand Masters, five of whom are still living, and three deadAmes Sherburne and Braden. From the above cursory and imperfect review of the working of Ancient Craft Masonry in this State, there can be no doubt that the con dition of masonry in Minnesota is highly pros Cous and encouraging. As the office of Grand ster has been vacated by death, the duties of the office will to-day devolve upon Deputy Grand Master E. W. Durant, of Stillwater. RED RIVER VALLEY. The River Still Open, aud hut little 8uow and IceHow an Enterprising Citizen Pro poses to Supply a .Fpssihle Ic Famine Next Summer. From Ira M. Carpenter, Esq., the popular Superintendent of the Nqrthwstern Transpor tation Company, whose headquarters are at Grand Forks, Dakota Territory, a G/LOBB re porter derived the extraordinary information that there has been no crossing of the Red River at that place on the ice this winter. But little snow had fallen in that region, and but a short time ago, the road ont of Garry was so bad that it was difficult, if not impossible, to haul an empty hack outside the city limits tho wheels clogging with the sticky clay, and putting an absolute embargo on trade and travel. Such odd freaks of the weather as this, were totally inexplicable to the "oldest inhabi- tant," who, loath to believe that such things can be in midwinter, manifests MB "special wonder" in a style and language foreign to both the taste and idiom of the Y. M. C. A., while Ira admits himself unable to account for the unwonted atmo spheric metamorphosis at present prevailing in that region, he nevertheless proves himself alive to the necessities of the changed condi tion of affairs, and, to keep up" with the times, has taken the precaution to order a supply of ice freezers from New Orleans for use next summer. Ice, he says, ia a necessity, and if dame Nature refuses her wonted supply, he is just enterprising enough to remedy the evU, ST. PAlA Mftf GLOBE, TUESDAY MORNING, JANUARY 15, 187S.^ and furnish the needed luxury "in quantities suit." Tne bad condition of the roa^consequent upon the open weather, Mr. Carpenter says, has a depressing effect, along with the heavy production of the past season, upon the prices of wheat* and oats, in Garry particularly, and generally along the valley of the Red Rivertho former being^uoted at.only fifty cents per bushel, and tflo latter at 25 cents per bushel of 34 pounds. Mr. Carpenter is confident of a large and greatly increased immigration to that region next summer, and even now is considering pro posals for the transportation, from Fisher's Landing to Winnipeg, of three hundred fami lies of Canadian farmers early in March next. All indications, he is satisfied, point unmis takably to the fact that in a very few short years the fertile valley of the Red River will be thickly populated and one of the richest and mo6t "prosperous communities in the North West. CHAMBER OF COMMERCE. Roads that Need MeudlngrExcessive Kail road ChargesThe Sigh School Question The Northern Paolfle. The regular meeting of the Chamber yester day morning was attended with the nBual de gree of interest which has long since been felt in the proceedings of this body. Mr. Ingersoll called up the subject of roads leading from this city to Washington county, and moved that the matter be referred to the committee on roads, with instructions to re port next Monday. He referred to the impor tance of prompt action on the matter, and also to the efforts being made by Hastings to draw to itself the trade of localities, which naturally belongs here, and would certainly come here, were passably good roads hither provided. The motion was adopted and referred to the regular standing committee on roads, with the addition of Mr. Ingersoll. Gen. Johnson called up the complaint of Quinby & Hallowell, made at the last meet ing relative to the excessive charges on a sleigh shipped by that firm to the Northern Pacific country, the charges being one half or more the value of the sleigh. After some debate the subject was continued in the hands of the committee to whom it was referred last week. Gen. Banning spoke of the previous action of the Chamber in reference to the public schools and referred to the committee's report of their examination of the High School building. He regarded as the most important recommenda tion made by the committee the necessity as urged by tbem, of having a new public school building. Their recommendation met with a hearty response from all having any knowledge of the subject. It was evident that the build ing was unsafe, unhealthy, and altogether un fit for the uses to which it is applied. Some question has aiiaen as to the lease, which, he stated, had three years to run at a rental of some sixteen hun dred dollars. In the worst aspect of the mat ter, the city would be out only some $700 or $800. He noticec the Chamber had spent a great deal of time in the discussion of roads and other comparatively unimportant matter. Yet it was passing strange that but little solic itude has been expressed for the daily endan gcrment of the health of the children of the city. Mr. Deane explained that the committee had been unable to get together and attend to the matter properly. They had, however, attended a meeting at Minneapolis, and had there visited the public schools and gathered some interest ing faots. The Board of Education had the matter under consideration, and we rather thought it discourteous in the Chamber to pro ceed therein piior to action by them. The sub ject was finally disposed of by reference to the committee for report next week. The President announced the appointment of Mr. Scribner on the committee on transporta tion in place of C. B. Newcomb, and of E. E. Hughson in place of same gentleman on com mittee on parks. Mr. McClung offered the following resolution: WHEREAS, The annual message of the Gov ernor, just delivered, shows that the State of Minnesota has grown in twenty-seven yearB from a population of 5,320 to 700,000 from an assessed property valuation of $806,473 to $221,000,000 in railroad development from ten miles in 1862 to 2,200 miles in 1877 that 216 miles have been built dnring the past year, an amount largely in excess of the entire four years preceding that the gross earnings of these roads the year last reported exceeded 16,000 000: that the wheat crop of the State rangeaTcrom ao,o\ro,ooo vo 40,000,000 ur vuntreiu, and the cash value of the four leading cereals exceeded $55,000,000 that the flour manufac tured exceeded $15,000,000 in value, and all manufactures over $42,000,000 that the sale of government lands were 850,000 acres, and of government and railroad lands over one million of acreslargely intended for actual occu pancy and cultivation that the natural in crease of the State has been 24,205 births to 7,043 deaths, 213 of which were caused by old age. And whereas this wonderful transformation of what was popularly regarded as an inhos pitable land, far remote from markets, and fit only for the buffalo and the Indian, into a rich and populous State, ranking first among the wheat producing States of the Union, has been largely brought about by the liberal policy of the general government in granting lands for the construction of railroads, and extending the time for said construction during seasons of financial embarrassment therefore, Resdlvcds That in view of these rich returns for the bounties of the government, we think the same wise policy which dictated the grant of lands for the Northern Pacific Railroad Com pany, Bhould grant them the extension of time asked for the Construction of their road and we believe that said .'extension ofjtime will result in giving to the Union a line of new and prosperous States, reaching to the Pacifio Ocean, and the shortest and best route between the Atlantic and Pacific and to China and Japan. We respectfully ask the Congress of the Uni ted States to grant the extension of time asked, and we call upon our representatives in Congress to use their best efforts to procure such extension as a matter of great interest to the entire country. IZesohvrj furt?ta\ That this Chamber ackowl edges the reception of the communication from the Board of Trade of Helena, Montana, asking for close relations of intercourse and exchange. The identity of interest between Minnesota and Montana in opening railway communica tions with the Pacific States, aud their recipro cal relations in matters of trade and commerce, make it a pleasure for Minnesota to extend her hand across the wilderness to Montana and to accept her tender of abetter acquaintance and closer relations of business. A brief discussion followed, after which the resolutions were adopted, and the Chamber ad journed. ^r STATE EDITORIAL COXVESTIOX. The Animal Meeting to be held This Afternoon.

The officers of the Midland Bailroad Com pany, narrow gauge, which is to run from Wabasha to Zumbrota, a distance of 64 miles, and which some time ago temporarily suspen ded on account of lack of means at that time, now feel [confident, as a GLOBE reporter was yesterday assured, that within one month they will begin laying track again, after which date they will be able to complete the road to Zum brota in 30 days. The road has already been graded, and the work done within the past five monthB, from Wabasha to Zumbrota, over 20 miles of iron laid, and trains operated daily upon the same. All necessary bridges have, it & understood, been completed ten miles further, in all a distance of over 30 miles.

To the Editor of THE GLOBE i Governor Robinson of New York, in his annual message holds the following language in regard to the common school system, and the sentiments expressed by him are worthy of the serious attention of the people of every State. He says: tnid ment and among the zealous and thoughtful 1 of regents, after an elaborate discussion of the subject, a resolution was adopted requeuing me to embody in this message to jouan 'em- phatic recommendation that piovision be made by law encourage the formation of high schools in the counties where thej are not 3 et established, to articulate with the curriculum of the University, by adequate appropriation of money in aid of that object, to be distribut ed under prescribed conditions. Also to recom mend the passage of a law requiring all the high schools in the Btate to adopt a uniform course of study which will qualify their schol ars for admission to the freshman class of the University.' In compliance both with this request, and with my personal convictions, I cordially make such recommendation, with full confidence that it will prove a measure in the interest both of a comprehensive policy and eventual economy in furtherance of the great educational interests which we all have at heart." We believe in a frea school system, but there should bo a limit to the studies taught. If the common schools are to "articulate with the curriculum of the university,"' why not articulate with the law snd medical col leges? The fact is that Gov. Robinson is correct, aud we trust that no more High Schools will be organized in our State to impose heavy burdens upon our people in the way of taxes wrenched from one class of our citizens to educate the children of another class. Heading, writing, and arithmetic should be taught in our schools, and these three are sufficient to educate the rising gen eration and fit it for intelligent citizenship. The university has ceased to have a prepara tory department. This is wrong. It should continue these preparatory classes and have them "articulate with the curriculum*' of the common schools. We trust that this sub ject will be well considered by the legislature before final action is taken. Deal With Tltevias Common Thieves. [From the Jktruit Free 1'rcnf.] The statement, for which The jVtt York /Sun is authority, and which is undoubtedly within the mark, that the amount absorbed by the de falcations which have occurred in the United States during the past five years exceeds thirty millions of dollars, is well calculated to furnish food for thought. The policy of sentimental leniency lug been too generally adopted toward defaulters. It can be productive of no injurious results to society at large, and will be productive of good in many ways, if during the next five years the policy be adopted of dealing with defaulters as common thieves are dealt with.
