THE BLACK HILLS.
WHAT A LEADING CITIZEN SATS.
Glowing Reports of the Richness of the
CountryMore Gold in an Area of Seven
Miles than in the Whole State of Cali-
forniaThe Bismarek Route.
Last evening a GLOBE representative ran
across, in the corridor of the Merchants
Hotel, a gentleman who is universally recog-
nized as one of the representative men of the
Black HillsMr. E Collins. Mr C. is a
man of medium stature, lithe, active fram e,
keen piercing eye, and probably in the neigh-
borhood of 4 5 years of age was just
about to take the evening train for Chicago,
bnt readily submitted for a few minutes to a
reportorial inquisition as to matters and
things in the Hills, and other matters of in
terest to the host of readers of THE GLOBE.
Mr. Collins is an old miner of 18 or 2 0
years experience, having gone to Colorado in
1860, where he engaged in mining, and
acquired much valuable experience. Two
years later found him in Nevada, where he
remained for two years. I 186 4 he traveled
further northward, to Montana, where he
remained eleven years, and achieved
reasonable success in mining operations.
in October, 1875, he went to Bismarck, and
in November of that year he sent
J. J. Sutherland on a prospecting tour to the
Hills who sent back the first gold that ever
came this way from that auriferous region,
and which was brought to the city by Mayor
McLean and Col. Lounsberry when these
gentlemen visited St. Paul for the pupose of
demonstrati ng the richness of the region in
question and the advantage of the Bismarck
route thereto.
regards the Bismarck route to the
Hills as by far the most practicable. The
staging, he says, is a real
pleasure, and the hotels on the line, are
ample and well kept. S far as ease, facility
of travel, general accommodations and dis
patch are concerned, the loute in question is
far preferable to all its competitors.
Times in Deadwood he represents as ex
tremely lively. Within a short time past
not over two monthsover two millions
of dollars of capital has been invested
in the Hills by California capitalists.
The fact is now established that the Bla ck
Hills is the richest mining country yet dis
covered. Col. Dean, Chairman of the Board
of Brokers of San Francisco, who is himself
considered an expert in mining matters, and
who was sent by the Board to theHills to ex
amine and report upon the mineral wealth of
the country, has submitted a report in which
he says there is more gold in an area of
seven miles in the Hills than there is in
he whole State of California.
Mr. Collins is personally interested in
large mining properties in the Hills, and
has recently made some very good sales in
one instance having realized some $20,0 00
for his interest in certain mines. Lately he
and Mr C. W Carpenter of ihis city, pur
chased a two-thirds interest in the Brooklyn
mine, which is in a rich belt and bids fair
to be as prolific in precious metals as any in
he Hills. is also interested in two sil
ver leads in the Bear Butte district, which,
he says, is the coming district in the Hills,
and will eventually prove so beyond doubt.
It is distant from Deadwood some nine or
ten miles.
Mr. Collins, who was originally from Syra
cuse, N Y., is on his way East on business,
and takes with him a general assortment of
gold and silver ore taken from the various
mines and lodes in different sections of the
Hills, all showing the general average of the
several ores. Among his large collection
of specimen s, is one of silves ore, which
assays $11,550 coined value to the ton, taken
from the Lone Jack lode in Bear But te dis
trict. From his long and varied experience
in mining countries, Mr Collins says he has
no doubt the Black Hills is the richest min
ing country yet discovered. considers
he country still in its infan cy as to develop
ment, but its richness has been so well
demonstrated that there can be no reasonable
doubt of ita unprecedented weal th and re
sources.
A this poi nt Mr Collins was forced to
hurry off to the train.

Spirited Contest Between Jack Oallaaher
and Weill O'BrienA Forty-seven Min
utes Fight Declared a Jraiv.
[New York Herald, Jan. 15.]
O the line of the Long Branch Kailroad
I there occurred last night one of the most
spirited glove contests that have been wit
1
Afew
nessed in this vicinity for some time,
gentlemen made up a purse of $75 to be
given to the man who fought down his an
tagonist according to the Marquis of Qneens
bury's rules,three minutes time for round,
one minute rest between the rounds. The
contestants were Jack Gallagher, of New
York, and Neill O'Brien. The former weigh
ed 137 pound s, was five feet six and three
quarter inches hig h, and 24 years old. O
Brien was five feet seven and a quarter in
chea hig h, weigh ed 15 3 pound s, and is 21
years of age. They had been in a sequester
ed spot, out of police circles, preparing for
this event. A few gentlemen only were al
lowed to witness it, and as the men are
somewhat well known in public circles, a
great deal was expected of them.
The place in which they were to fight was
prepared for them by persons who were equal
to the requirements of the case. The ropes
were stretched by tackles from each angle of
the room in such a manner as to leave a
twenty-four foot ring, with spaces outside for
spectators. Twenty-four lanterns were fixed
against the walla, which were padded to pre
vent the men fiom hurting themselves
should they be thrown over. A the house
no one would ever have thought that a con
test was anticipated, but about half-past eig ht
o'clock a few wagons and traps drove up,
bringing a few of the best-known sporting
men in both cities to the rendezvous. They
had supper after visiting the pugilists in their
quarters and seeing that they were all right.
About 9 o'clock they went to the room, and
shortly after the men appeared.
At this time Gallagher and O'Brien, in ring
costume s, drawers, boo ts and sashes, ap
pealed. They were accompanied by their
secondsfor Gallagher, Mike Welsh and
Dave Hunter for O'Brien, Frank Be ll and
Larry Ryan. Gallagher stepped into the
ring first and sat down in his corner. O'Bri
followed him immediatel y. There was
some discussion as to who should be referee,
which was finally settled by Edward Hanly
being chosen. A this time there were not
moie than twenty perso ns outside of the
ropes as spectators, and among them were
some dignitaries of the bar. The referee
called time at three minutes past 9. The
men and their secon ds shook hands, put on
their gloves, which were of the very tightest
and hardest kind, and began to spar.
Round 1.Gallagher felt with his left for
an openin g, was stopped, and tried aga in and
was stopped, O'Brien cross-countering a little
short. Gallag
er wouldn't be denied, and
reached out his left aga in and touched
O'Brien's chin the latter countered with his
right, ineffectively, however, and then the
men came together wrestling, and wound up
the round without advantage to either.
Round 2.At the call of time O'Brien was
first at the scratch, evidently anxious to force
he fighting if possible, being the much
heavier man. Gallagher was cautious, and
retreated all round the ring on the defensive.
At last O'Brien struck out with his left and
right in quick succession, but, slipping on the
boards, laid him open for a vicious upper cut
which Gallagher delivered, who, slipping
also, did not make it effective. Both men
were virtually on the floor this tim e, one on
his face, the other on his side, but time not
being up for the round, they were brought
together aga in by the referee. The last
forty seconds was spent in useless sparring
for advantage, and both were sent to their
corners.
Round 3.When time was called, the men
came up a little flushed by their former
efforts, and without any attempt at science,
went at each other in a ding-dong fashion.
Gallagher was driven to his corner, and in
turn O'Brien to his neither struck at the
head body blows were so often essayed that
the refeiee cautioned the men not to strike
too low This round wound up by both
falling over the ropes.
Round 4.In this round there was simply
a display of men who were afraid of each
other trying to find an opening for an as
sault. Time was wasted in useless sparring,
Round 5.O'Brien to ok the initiative on
the advice of his seconds, and tried to force
the fighting, driving Gallagher about the
ring in the most extraordinary fashion. One
or two blows were delivered by the latter,
which though useless, caused' the referee to
continue his caution not to strike bel ow the
belt. There was a pause for a moment, the
referee telling them to go on. The men
then simply hugged each other and fell in
Gallaghr's corner.
Rounds 6, 7, 8 and 9 were fought in this
outlandish fashion, the secon ds seeming to
be of no use, so that suggestions were made
that the referee, who was better posted on
pugilistic matters, should seco nd Gallagher,
and George McCarthy of equal renow n,
should second O'Brien, and Mike Brennan,
of the Seventh Ward, should be referee.
These changes were made, and the men went
to their corners.
Round 10.Time was called, and the men
faced each other with more spirit, at least
both were perspiring profusely and Gallagher
was somewhat groggy. O the advice of
their seconds, they came together with more
vigor than heretofore. O'Brien led with his
left, was stopped, tried again, and was cross
countered by Gallagher and sent staggering
over the ring. Before he could recover him
self, the latter struck him a wicked left-han
ded blow, which laid him upon the floor, and
the time having expired for the round, it
terminated in Gallagher's favor.
Round 11.This round was also in Galla
gher's favor for forcing the fighting.
thiew O'Brien over the ropes and fell upon
him. The men were taken to their comers.
Round 12.O'Brien came up -very mucn
fatigued by the wo rk of the former round.
His seco nd urged him to force the fighting,
believing that, as he was the heavier man, he
could worry his opponent down. Th con
test was close here. O'Brien's weight did
not tell against Gallagher, who pluokily met
his man at every point, counter, and cross
counter, and altogether might be said to have
the best of this bout.
Ronnd 13.Gallagher, who before the call
of time vomited in his corner, was somewhat
slow to respond to the referee's call. O'Brien
ca me up in a dazed sort of fashion, his face
showing that he had not got sc ot free from
his antagonist. This was a very short round,
the men falling side by side in Gallagher's
corner.
Rounds 14 15 1 6 and 1 7 wera equally
short. Gallagher was still sick at the stom
ach, and O'Brien was very weak. Neither
had lost any blood worth speaking f.
Though Gallagher had won first blood it was
not claimed or allowed. When they came
together they fell side by side, and were car
ried to their corners in a very poor condition.
It is evident that they had not been trained
at all.
Round 18.The referee cautioned the men
that they had not been fighting squarely,that
many blows had been struck below the belt,
and if it were repeated in this round he
would award, the fight to the man hit. Gal
lagher and O'Brien came together again, and
as it was evident that both were beaten, with
out any advantage to either, it was declared a
draw.
An Excellent Paper.

Harlan Hall, who is its editor and propri

DUELS IN FLORIDA.
A Terrible Combat with Bowie Knives
Shot Down with a agerKnives and
PistolsA Fight to which there tvere no
Witnesses.
[Fiom the Philadelphia Times.]
Some of the bloodiest duels on record were
fought in Florida. The Seminole war in
1837, brought to the front lot of reckless
young blue bloo ds that were full of fire and
sparkle. Gay livers for the most part, they
headed carelessly through the world and car
ried the whole defence of their lives in their
pistol fingers. A pressure of the trigger a
he answer they gave to protest or depreca
tio n. The brush they had with Osceola and
his yellow devils warmed them up sharply,
and when Prince Murat settled upon their
coast with a colo y of Frenchmen, challenges
flew thick and fast. The Frenchmen, of ne
cessity and with pleasure, fought their way
through, and very soon the already turbulent
society of Florida had received a deeper tinge
from the splendid drilling of the cut and
thrust followers of "th Prince." I was
in Florida that the feud began in
which the Alstons, Willis and Augus.

old rendezvous of forty year's standing
pickling myself in orange bran dy and munch

ow approached me. I recognized him as
Mr. Zabran, a ragged postscript to the life of
a gentleman, engaged at the time in the
humble but respectable busine ss of washing
dishes at the hotel. Pushing him a glass of
brandy, I asked him to tell me all about it.
Then and there, in that musty and half
ruined hotel, full of its wild and riotous
memories, the old fellow told me a story that
for fierce gallantly and recklessness put fic

camp, and was at once the subject of com

in the absence of his Colonel, to protect his
honor, mounted a horse, and plunged
throu gh the woods to Augusta. Reaching
that city, he made his way to the Chronicle
office and demanded to know the author of
he offensive article. I turned out that it
was Gov. Reed, of Florida, for a long time
a bitter political enemy of Call's. Lieut.
Alston at once sent him a peremptory chal

happy to accommodate Lieut. Alst on with
satisfaction as soon as he had concluded an
affair with Lieut. Williams, of Call's staff,
who had already favored him with a no te

had to content his soul in patience until the
affair with Williams was over. did not
have to wait long. A meeting was soon
arranged between Reed and Williams, the
conditions of which were that they weie to
fight with bowie knive3 until
one or the other should be cut

and dead game grasp, standi ng toe to toe.
The keen and shining knives were then

they were dropped perpendicularly along
their legs. A the next wo rd they were rais

pieces. Gov Reed escaped without disabling

"He then tnrn ed his attention to Lieut.
Alston. Being the challenged party he had
the choice of weapons. selected a mur
derous weapon, now happily obsolete, but
then of common use and known as a yager.
I was a broad-mouthed, funnel-shaped,
smooth-bore gun, that carried a handful of
shot, and was warranted to hit everything in
the neighborhood of its aim. The duel was
a most unfortunate one in its direct and re
mote results. Capt. Kenon was Lieut. Al
ston's second. The principals were posted
with their backs to each other. A the word

slipped and stumbled. The command, "Fire,

went off into the air, Gov Reed to ok cool

Alst on dropped dead. Thus two gallant
young fellows had already fallen in defence
of the honor of an absent comrade. But the
cruel feud was hardly opened.

that a sister of Lieut. Alst on had the lead
taken from her brother's body and a new

come and avenge their brother's death. Col.
Alston came as fast as possible to this hotel.
Gov. Brown met him as he rode up to the
piazza, and at once divined his purpose.
'You have come here to challenge Reed?' he
asked. Col. Alston assented. Gov. Brown
then begged him to be very deliberate
and cool and quiet about it* O

around him, and his head bowed upon

moments when some one burush ed past him
rather roughly. Raising his head he dis

excitement, and rising exclaimed: 'Yo

The fire was repeated, each man receiving
another bullet. Col. Alston was then out of
ammunition, having only two horseman's
pistols. Throwing back his long cloak, how

come to his ears, he handed him a letter con

asked him if he was responsible
for it. Pending their discussion of

with a pair of Colt's pistols, and Col Alst on
with a bowie knife and shot gun. When

QUEER ITEMS.
The Extravagance of the Senate Increasing
as the Times Grow Harder.
[Washington Special (Jan. 13) Philadelphia
Times.]
The report of the Secretary of the Senate
of the receipts and expenditures of that body
for the fiscal year ending June 30 1877 has
just been made public. The year was rather
an exceptional one, but some of the items
are both amusing and astonishing. The ex
penditures for the year nearly reached the
extravagant figure of a million dollars. The
Belknap impeachment trial cost $ 11,583, of
which amounts a son of the sergeant-at-arms
received $756 as clerk to his father. The
capitol police force costs $21,800 a year.
Senator Jones' silver commission spent $150-
000. The committee on privileges and elec
tion spent $95,212, which includes the
expenses of the electoral court. The
cost of subpoenaing witnesses was enormous,
and furnished remunerative employ
ment to a large number of Hangers-on at the
Capital. Among the contingent expenses
are some strange items. Wilton carpet is
charged at the rate of $ 4 per yard, when it
can be obtained for $ 3 and Brussels carpet
is charged for at the rate of $2,25, when it
can be obtained for $1.50. Three Persian
rugs cost $525. One Smyrna rug cost $100.
Picking thirty-two locks cost $350, and one
walnut Spanish lounge, extra size, upholster
ed in leather, and made in the best style for
the Committee on Foreign Relations, cost
$9 0. Cleaning and repairing desks and
chairs and backs of chairs, etc., cost $108:
an ash handle for a mop cost $1.50, and up
holstering the Vice-President's foot
stool $2. The Sergeant-at-arms bought
twenty-two revolvers and ammunition to
matc h, at an expense of more than $300, to
guard the box containi ng the electoral votes.
Pinchbac k, who nev er had a seat in the sen
ate, was allowed to draw the salary of a sen
ator, and to ok from the treasury $16,966.
The bill for cold tea, lemons and granulated
sugar, for the summer of 1876 amounted to
$1,584. The senate's ice bill for Augu st was
$31 1, and about the same for all the sum
mer months. Twelve bottles of Martinique
snuff furnished the senate with sneezing ma
terial at a cost of $9. The list of items in
he whole account make a book of 308 pages,
and it will be admitted that the senate is ra
ther an expensive body.
TRUTHS ABOUT HAYES.
The Republicans Know That He Was Never
Elected to be President.
[From the Inter-Ocean, the Regular Republican
Organ in Chicago.]
A Republican Senator, who is said to be an
intimate personal friend of Senator
Conkling, was interviewed to-day in regard to
his position on the investigation of the charges
made by W. E Chanler. Baid: "I was one
of those, from the very beginning, never had
any respect for Mr. Hayes. I never called up
on him, and never directly or indirectly, asked
any favor at his hands. I alwaysd told Sena
tor Conkling to pursue the same
course. had a mind of his
own, and I do not pretend to have influenced
him but that he did do as I have done, every
body knows. I never believed that Mr. Hayes
was elected. I frequently told Senator Con
kling and other Senatorial friends that I be
believed that Tilden was elected honestly and
squarely. As to whether or not there will be
an investigation, I don't know. I have not
heard of a Republican Senator who will move
in the matter. I know several who will
vote for a resolution directing an in
quiry if such a one is introduced.
I have no desire to fight the electoral business
over again I am -willing to let things take their
own course. I Mr. Hayes can sit quiet under
these grave accusations if the Democrats can
affort to keep quiet also, I can. One thing is
certain, however, the people of this country
are beginning to believe that there was fraud,
and corrupt bargains also. This growing be
lief is not confined to Democrats, but Republi
cans are becoming converted. How can it be
otherwise? Everybody knows that Packard
had more votes in Louisiana than the Hayes
electors did. If Hayes honestly believed that
he was honestly entitled to the electoral vote
of Louisiana, why did he abandon Packard,
who received 2,000 more than the highest elec
tor on the Hayes ticket? Th masses of
the people grasp salient points like this, and
cannot comprehend nice points of constitu
tional law, such as are put forward as the ex
cuses for the course of the Administration to
ward Louisiana. Th people have been accus
tomed for a good ma ny pears to see the troops
employed to sustain governments in Southern
States. There never was any very loud outcry
from Republicans against it. I it reasonable
to suppose that all at once they could agree
with the Administration that it could be a
great crime to sustain Packard, whose title to
the governorship of Louisiana was precisely
the same as that of the President's? But this
is not all. The people believe that there was a
bargain bitween the friends of the President
and certain Southern Democrats. Th proof of
the pudding is in the eating. The Southern
Demociats who were parties to the bargain dic
tate Federal appointments. They are the
trusted advisers of the President, au defend
him in the Senate. It does not matter if there
is no investigation the facts are bound to
come out sooner or later any how. Murder
will out so will a political borgain and
sale."
'"Do you think Senator Conkling will offer a
resolution directing an inquiry to be made?"
/'No, I don't. Of course, I don't know what
his intentions may be. I know he has never
indicated any such purpose to me and I feel
confident he would have ?tt least hinted to me
his purpose. I know that he does not believe
Hayes was elected by the people I think I
know also that he never believed that the Louis
iana returning board had the legal right to
throw out thousands of votes in order to count
in Hayes electors. I have often said to him,
and he has agreed with me, that the vote
thrown out in Louisiana, in proportion to the
population of the two States, would be equal to
one hundred thoasand thrown out in Ne
Xork, and certainly the people of the Northern
States would not have submitted to such busi
ness as that."
At this point the Senator branched off about
the manner in which the Administration had
treated Senator Conkling. said: "Just
think of it Conkling's votes in the Cincinnati
Convention nominated it I will be remem
bered that when Conkling was withdrawn Ne
York gave her entire vote for Hayes. Has
Hayes any gratitude? I he had would he not
have sent for Mr. Conkling and asked his ad
vice about his Cabinet? Would he have made
his mortal enemy the head of Cabinet?
No matter if Mr. Conkling did appear to be
doubtful on the question of counting him in,
right or wrong, a conscientious man is the sort
of an adviser a President needs."
"But was not Mr. Evarts entitled to some
thing for his great services?" I asked.
"What services did he render?" sharply de
manded the Senator.
"His argument before the Electoral Commis
sion," I replied.
"That was all sham. I wasn't argument that
made Hayes President. Th Commission did
the business, and the Commission did not re
quire to be told how to do their work.',1/
"There axemen," says Mr. Talmage, "wh
sing like angels on Sunday and lie like sin on
Monday." Newspaper men never sing like
angels, and if Mr. Talmage alluded to lawyers
why didn't he come out like a man and say so?
Republican Iowa's finances do not look well
alongside of those of Democratic Ne Jersey
and Kentucky. Even a constitutional limit
has failed to restrain the increase of Qui debt.
3IarketlValue of Young Ladies.
The market value of young ladies is vari
able. I Pittsburg, as has been recently shown
by means of an auction at a church-fair, the
price averages about $4.75, although extra grades
bring a dollar or two more. How much more
expensive is this class of merchandise in Tur
key! There a female child of 7 years is worth
at a rude estimate $400, and before she attains
the age of 17, providing that she is first-class
in every respect, her value has increased to the
enormous sum of $4,000. Allowing forth or
dinary fluctuations of the market, in accord
ance with the principles of supply and de
mand, there is yet a vast and unexplainable
difference between the ruling prices in Pitts
burg and in Constantinople.
The New York manufacturers of tobacco are
said to be opposed to reducing the tobacco tax
to twelve cents per pound, or half the present
rate.
An English bark, for London, carried away
from Ne Orleans, last Tuesday, 504 tons of
cotton seed. I is said that the seed is now
largely used in Europe for expressing the oil, of
which to make an article which is Bold for
olive oil.
At a dinner of the Commercial Club of Bos
ton yesterday afternoon, Ex-Secretary of the
Treasury Preston made a speech, and a dispatch

cago.
The Republican papers are much disgusted
over the passage of Mr. Wood's resolution pro
viding for investigation in all directions. It
affords them a very unpleasant prospect.
A good story is told of a prominent Min-
neapolis legislator who, in passi ng down the
street in that city, the other day, met a
colleague of the body to which he belongs, in
company with a gentleman, a well known tem-
perance advocate, with whom, however, he was
unacquainted. Passing he usual compliments
of the day, he inquired where he was going,
and then remarked: "Have you had your
drink this morning? Come, let's take some-
thing. Bring your friend with you!" Fancy
he "phelinx" of two of the party just then.

THE ST. PAUL GLOBE
DAILY AND WEEKLY.
A FIRST CLASS MOKNING PAPER.
Having purchased a franchise in the Western
Associated Press, I ha\e commenced the publication
of a DAILY MOENINQ PAPEB I S ST. PAUL.
PRIMARILY.
The GLOBE will bo a ITEWSFAPEB, giving complete
ASSOCIATED PBBSB NEWS, coupled with liberal special
telegrams, correspondence, &c. In short, the GLOBS
will furnish all the news and present an accurate and
complete daily map of the doings of this busy world.
An able, active, and vigorous corps of editors, re
porters, and correspondents has been secured and
HE GLOBE will be a First-Class Journal to all its de
partments.
POLITICALLY,
The GLOBE will be DEMOCRATIC Not in the
offensive, "organ-grinding" sense, bound to blindly
support any man or measure bearing for the time the
label of Democracy, but the broad, liberal mean
ing of the termthe Democracy which signifies a
government by the people, conducted to advance the
interests of the whole people. It will labor to make
the great crime odious whereby the wul of the people
was thwarted and a man placed in the Presidential
chair who was not elected. It will endeavor to aid In
making this fraud so odious, that no party wiU dare
to attempt its repetition, and no man in the future be
willing to accept the fruits of such robbery.
Honest and economical governmentLocal, State,
and Nationalwill always be advocated.
THE PRESENT PARAMOUNT ISSUE
is whether the few shall devour the many. Whether
the business depression which now hangs like a pall
over the land, carrying woe and desolation every
where, shall become more fearful, or whether the
burden shall be lifted. On this, as upon all ques
tions, the GLOBE will be found battling with no un
certain sound upon the side of the people. It will
favor the BEMONETIZATION OF SILVER, and the RE
PEAL or THE RESUMPTION ACT, as the least that can
be done to make amends for the secret crime by
which debts payable in coin were changed to the
gold standard alone. It will favor any and all other
measures calculated to advance the business inter
ests of the country and tending to improve the con
dition of the masses. It will be emphatically the
PAPER FOR BUSINE SS MEN.
It will give great attention to the Markets and Com
mercial matter generally, and will furnish the news of
the world in such condensed and attractive form,
that the busiest men will be able to keep fully posted
upon current events.
PERSONAL.
The establishing of the GLOBE 1B a personal busi
ness enterprise. No fund has been raised by poli
ticians or others, and not a dollar is asked save in the
way of legitimate business. The heavy expenditure
incurred before the first copy was issued, proves that
it is on a permanent basis from the start. The pub
lisher believing that there is a field hero for such a
journal as he has briefly outlined, confidently appeals
to the pubhc for support. Democrats of Minnesota
who have so long regretted their inability to obtain a
hearing for their principles, now have an opportunity
to attest their appreciation of this enterprise. Be
publicans who condemn the current sham Civil Ser
vice reform, and the utter betrayal of their party
North and 8outh by the non-elected President can
testify their approval of the GLOBE by their sub
scriptions.
Democrats and Republicans, business men, and
every one who wishes all the news, racily served in
convenient form at a moderate price, should rally to
the support of the new paper.
Give it a trial and judge for yourselves.
