A Lengthy and Spirited Discussion Upon
the Uasis of RepresentationTfec Report
Slightly Modified and Adopted.
Pursuant to announcement the committee
appointed to draft an outline of Daw's for a
complete union of the interests of both of
the present diviflioiiH of the eih. met at the
city council cbaml)er yesterday afternoon.
Previous to the consideration of the repoit
proper. Mr. "Wyiuan Elliot introduced a
resolution endorsing the leque st of he State
agricultural society for a legislative appro-
priation to enable Peter M. Gideon, of Ex-
celsiui, to experiment raising apples. The
resolution was adopted.
The resolutions were accepted with an
amendment to tho eifect that it be revised
with a view to the elimination of a few
dramatical errors.
Preside nt Washburne then announc ed tjie
report of the committee as in order, and by
Mr. A. Aukeny, the following was sub
To the Board of Trade and Cili/.cn.- of the
city of Minneapolis:
Your committee, appointed '"to examine into
iil the ]ufhtioii involved in a closer union of
the two divisions of the city of Minneapolis,
and a representation based upon principles of
eipiity and justice," report as follows:
That they have held several protracted ses
sions, in which a full and free interchange of
opinion was had upon all the points involved
and while there seemed to be man} conflicting
interests between the two divisions, thcie weie
none which could not, by mutual concessions,
be harmonized. The following geneial basis
of consolidation was not agieed to in all its
features by the entne committee but the con
clusions, ah well as objections, are given in the
hope that by a further general dibuussion some
dilutable basis may be arrived at which will
break down all walls of partitions between the
two divisions, and thus give a new impetus to
thi* growth and character of our city.
The liist point involved in a closer union
seemed to be the proper icpiesentation in the
city government, it was maintained that in
the union of the two cities six jears ago a cer
tain basis of icpiesentation had been consented
to, and that this basis could not justly be re
duced. Ou the other hand it was contended
th.it any agreement then made could not right
litllj piolubit the establishment of new wards
in an} pait of the city as the city continued to
grow. It was claimed that one new ward was
required now on the West Side, and by a iur
ther extension of the city limits, possiblj two
mm e. It was linally agreed h} the committee
that a new waid, if desired, should be establish
ed on the West Side, and additional wards in any
portion of the city as necessity maj requite.
The next question discussed was the debts of
the two divisions. Figiuos from the official re
cords were produced, from whieli it appeared
that the debt of the East Division was piopoi
tionately smaller than that oE the West Divis
ion, and that in older to place the two upon a
pi oper and equal basis, the East Division
should lie allowed out of the consolidated city
fund a sum sufficient to make them even. It
was furthei consideied that in merging the two
division debts into one, all the property, ot
whatever character, should be the common
pioperty ot the city, and all debts to be as
sumed. Fifty thousand dollars was tho sum
fixed upon by a majoiity of the committee, as
a deficiency to be allowed by the new city, to
be expended tor improvements' on the East
Side, and such improvements to be either for
the construction of water works on the East
Hide, or for a supply of water by a connection
with the water works on the Wfit Side, as
might hereafter he deemed best. The amount
tixed as deficiency was objected to by a mi
The next point considered was what under
the consolidation should constitute the munici
pal government. A portion of your committee
urged the present plan another portion favored
a continuance of the present council, but to
have one councilman from each ward. In ad
dition thereto, it was proposed to have an ad
instead ot one. It was further deemed ad-
East Division would not concede a ny more
than he report provided for, and that he
West Side demanded further concessions or
none, covering the entire points. The East
Division gentlemen in speaking for their
portion of he city demanded that their rep
resentation or wards bo not reduced, while
the West Division would only agree to he
union on a basis according to population,
thus disregarding the basis established at he
time of the partial union, some six years
Judge Atwater believed in running the
ward lines across the river as the only means
of a perfect union, and introduced an amend
ment to that effect. Hon. E Wilson and
others offered the amendment and it was
Further discussion ensued when Alderman
Bassett introduced a resolution to the effect
that the report be so amended as to provide

afterward made, providing for one alderman

being then adopted.

Tho conclusion arrived at was to the
effect that the East Division would make no
further concessions, and the meeting might
as well adjourn nine die if the West Division
would not accept the report of the commit

Judge AUvater's amendment was then
voted down, several other amendments fol
lowing and likewise being withdrawn.
The question then recurred upon the
original proposition, the adoption of the le
port of the committee, and it was carried.
The section of the report relative to
the indebtness of the Divisions,
and he basis of union on that
point was also lengthily discussed, a portion
of the discussion being of a personal nature

A household of women waited for George

woman had sold them tickets at he box of
fice, and women had acted as ushers. I he
boxes were expensively-dressed women, and
not a man was to be seen. The combined
chatting of the audience was like he hum

bees. A shaip lookout was kept up lest a
man should put in an appearance, and as the
proprietor of the building walked down the
main aisle to speak to a lady acquaintance a
storm of hisses broke out, and ended in a
merry peal of laughter. hastened back.
Some elderly women on the front seats kept

Mr. Train, interrupting himself. ''I've

was poor in purse and her parents would not

when one gets into the way of it, as mothers

to Induce Immigration.
The following is a synopsis of Dillon
O'Brien's speech at St. Jame's Hall, Boston,
on the 31st ult., as reported by the Boston
I have felt he ra- ponsibility, I may say,
he awful responsibility of advising men in
he matter of breaking up their old homes
and seeking new oneB, he chan ge embracing,
as it does, a change of occupation but the
weight of that responsibility has been much
lessened in my estimation since I came East,
and judged for myself he position of large
numbers of my countrymen in your Eastern
cities, and the prospects before them. I
speak now on matters that yon understand
better than I do, and I speak subject to your
correction if my views are not correct. I do
not expect that he present fearful depression
in business, and the extre me hard tim es inci
dent thereon, are to continue. God forbid-that
would be too dark a picture to contemplate.
I have witnessed many a sad incident in my
life, but he procession of honest, able-bodied
workingmen, through your city, asking only
for employment and unable to procure it,
was among the saddest I ever witnessed.
This great depression will pass away but
nevertheless I say to he working class that
there is no prospect that the flush times for
laboring menwhen a man willing
to work could get plenty of it and good
wageswi ll return, but there is a certainty
that labor-saving machinery will increase and
improve, will successfully compete with hand
labor in almost every branch of industry, and
that in the near futnre, in the worksh op and
factory, it will be the water in the boiler of
he _steam engine rather than tho sweat of
men's brows that capital will call to its aid.
Tu rn now to he la nd that God has given
to he children of toil as a perpetual inher
itance. What does it offer to labor? It of
ficers to industry an honest independe nt
homea home where a man is his own boss:
a home where the profits of his labor go to
himself and his family: a home of broad
acres, bountiful with the realization of God's
promise to men, that "seed time and harvest
time shall not fail a home where labor is
no longer servitude, but independence: a
home whose every surrounding tills a man
with self respect/for the farmer ploughing
or reaping in his own fields feels that no
man bolter than he is shall pass him by all
day, he is a landowner on his own property
above all. a home where a poor man can
bring up his children far away from the
dangers and vices of he crowded city this
is the home th at he land offers to him
whose honorable lot it is to earn his bread
by the sweat of his brow.
But there are conditions. All men are not
adapted for agricultural life. God forbid
that in my humble efforts to do good, to
stimulate my own people to lake their due
share of the soil of their adopted country, I
should injure any one. the man who
has a good home in he city, with fair pros
pects before him, do not, I say, unless pri
vate motives actuate you, bleak up your
home to make a new one in the West, but
rather stay where you are, and thank God
for giving you such a home: but if a man
feels himself going back, is means slippi ng
away from him, the future looking dark, to
such a man I confidentially say: secure a
home on he land.that can never slip away
from you if you are industrius,while you
have he means to do so. But listen first to
the conditions.
If yo ur capital is small, a few hundred dol
lars, at the most, you must have, a capital of
muscle, either in yourself or your boys, able
and willing to hold he ploug h.
'I have this," a man says to me, "and I
will take your advice and go West."
Stay there are other conditions: hear
them: take time to consider them.
The man fitted to go West should bo one
who, when he makes up his mind to do a
thing, does it with a will that cannot be over
come by temporary obstacles or idle advice.
Such a man, under God. is bound to succeed.
But if he is a married man he should con
sult his wife's feelings. If he has become
so wedded to city life, to its gossip and tea
drinking, and visits, th at her life on a farm
would be one continued lament for those
past blessings, then, in that case, I believe
he had better remain where he is. and let
the gossiping go on. For a discontented
wife on a new farm is far worse than the
grasshoppers. But if she says to him, "Come,
we will have he children out of harm's way,
anyhow," then let him go with a brave heart,
and the smile of he good wife and moth er
shall be he sun of their prairie home.
How much capital will a man require to
go upon a farm?
The Catholic Colonization Company of
Minnesota, in its invitation, says that a man,
say with a wife and four children, should
have about four hundred dollars. With this
he can secure, under he homestead act, 160
acres of land, build a house, break 50 acres
of his land for his next years' crop, break
five acres for a garden, which will give him
in three months as much corn, potatoes, and
other vegetables as will do him for a year,
and have still enough of his capital left to
buy him a cow or two. and support his fam
ily until is first crop of whe at comes in.
Mark you, this calculation is made by those
wh o, giving an invitation, know that they
will be held accountable for the truth of
every figure but. nevertheless, a man with
good courage and good muscle can make for
himself a home on 1G0 acres of as fine land
as there is in the world, if he has .fi'OO when
he lan ds in St. Paul.
Of the soil of Minnesota it is unnecessary
for me to speak, for to-day he is recognized
as the great wheat-raising State of America,
having produced last year forty million of
bushels. You have doubtless heard of the
cold of our winters, but I would not change
the climate of Minnesota for that of any
other State cold is a positive blessing com
pared to great heat.
The air of Minnesota is so pure and dry,
and the temperature so steady, that when it
is ten degrees below zero with us, we do not
feel the cold half as much as yon do iir Bos
ton when it is ten degrees above zero and
as for a healthy climate, Minnesota beats the
W cannot, to be sure, promise you, if you
come to Minnesota, that you will sit under
your own orange-trees, eat your own oranges
and take your yellow fever comfortably.
No: but we promise you good soil, hard
work, he best of health and spirits to enable
you to perfo rm it, and a bright future to re
ward your industry.
Mr. O'Brien then spo ke at length of he
lands of he Catholic colonies in Minnesota.
There are, he said, in the western and
southwestern portio ns of the State, he latter
adjoining the Iowa line. The colony in
Swift county contains twelve townships, each
township having thirty-six sections of land,
each section containing 640 acres. I he
colony there are four railroad towns, with
railroad depot, grain elevator, and stores.
Abo ut 500 Catholic families have already
settled in this colony, about the same num
ber have taken up land and are coming on
in the spring, making in all close upon 1,000
families, or 5,000 people. The colo ny lias two
churches, and two resident priests. The
railroad lands in the colony can be bought
for from 2 to $ 4 per acre, the difference
being in location, but none of the lands are
more than ten miles from he railroad depot,
while a large porti on of them are right along
the track. The government lan ds
within the colo ny /proper arc all
tak en up, and in conse
quence those looking for government la nd
are going into the adjoining county, Big
Stone county this is merely extending he
original bounds of the colony. The govern
ment lands in Big Stone county are not sur
passed by any lands in he State.
St. Adrian colony, in he southwestern
portion of he State, adjoining the State of
Iowa, was only opened last fall, and there
are already a number of settlers gone in.
The homeste ad lan ds of he colony are all
taken up, but he bureau has control of 70,-
000 acres of railroad lands, which can be
had for about 5 an acre. These lands are
unsurpaased, bountifully watered with
streams th at no longer flow nor th to he
Mississippi, but son th to the Missouri, giving
he land a southern aspect, a great advantage
in tillage land.
The colo ny lands run right into the town
of Adrian, that has a railroad depot, hotel,
stores, and reside nt priest. Wherever our
colonists settle, they will find their own peo
ple before them, with a church and priest.
To the man with fair capital, desirous to
embark in farming, Minnesota offers a grand
field. Without any outlay of is capital he
can, under the homeste ad and tree cnltere
acts, secure 320 acres. Let him then buy
fioni he railroad companyif a Catholic, in
one of Catholic colonies3 20 more, and he
will then have a who le section. 640 acres,
every acre of which, ten years from this, will
be worth 30.
Details that I have but time to glance over
can be had in full, by writing to the Catho
lic colonization bureau, St. Paul, Minnesota,
for copies of its immigration pamphlet. Let
my countrymen read it, and also let them
make themselv es acquainted with the statis
tics of other States and territories where
there is still unoccupied lands. Then let
those of them adapted for agricultural life
make a bravo effort to win independe nt
homes on the soil of their adopted country.
Hotc the Eeaityelist Once Made a Tour of the
Counti'u in a Cauda Wat/on.
The Tr oy Buflrjtt makes tho revelation
that a few years ago. Mr. Ira Sankey was
peddling a liniment that ho called "Instant
rlelief.'' travelled with a showy wagon,
and sang song:* to is own accompaniment
on a melodeon. thus attracting multitudes,
to whom he sold he preparation.
The writer well remembe rs the traveling
establishment to which he Budget briefly
refers. The wagon had a broad, high box.
was gaudily covered with red and gold, and
was drawn by six plumed horses. Soon
after nightfall tho spirited team would dash
into the most frequented square of a city or
village, drawing the vehicle to a favorable
spot tor the accommodation of a
lar^e audience. Flaring torches were then
lighted and placed in convenient sockets. A
melodeon in the wagon was opeur
and Mr.
Sankey i'l'/a Bndytt says it was certainly he,
and the statement accords with he writer's
vivid recollection of he man) took his place

times comi c, playing an accompaniment.
that time a dense throng had collected, and
everybody wondered wh at was meant by he
free entertainment. They found out imme
diately, for Mr. Sanky, standing at the tail
board of he wagon, delivered a harangue on
the wonderful "Insant Kelier*' that he had to
sell. Three assistants took bottles of he
stuff from boxes, and made ready to sell. Mr.
Sankey's address is clearly recollected as hav
ing, in its delivery, the style of a religious
exhortation of he fervid kind.
spo ke of the ills that flesh is heir to. and es
pecially of the various aches with which
the human body is afflicted. Then, with a
bottle ot "Instant iieliei" held aloft, he de
clared that he brought he glad tidings of a
sure and instant cure. did not, he said,
ask anybody to take his word for it: but he
would on he spot relieve anybody who had

kept urging the afflicted to come to the
wagon, much in the manner that he revival
ists beseech sinners to come to he peniten
tial benc h, until he was successful in getting
a patient on whom to try the liquid. "In-
stant Belief' was of the familiar class of
lotions, with laudanum for a principal in
gredient, that rarely fail to deaden pa in im
mediately on being applied. Therefore, hav
ing secured somebody with an ache or pain,
Mr. Sankey was able to convince his hearers
that "Instant Belief was something that they
could not afford to do without. Sales followed
fast, Mr. Sank ey continued his harangue, as
he sopp ed he aching spots with the lotion,
while his assistants handed out bottles and
took in litty-cent shinplasters. Whenever
the sales lagged, and the people began to dis
perse, he sat down at the melodeon and sang
several songs.
Mr. Sank ey went through the country with
his novel entablishinent. and at times was re
inforced by other singers. When he was in
the Hudson river and western Massachusetts
cities a young woman sang duetts with him,
and the party included a comic singer. The
upshot of this business is not known, but it
certainly had the appearance of prosperity.
Not long afterward Mr. Sankey sang in a
Chicago revival, in conjunction with Mr.
Moody's work, and* subsequently they wrent
to Great Britain together, where they made
their first great success.
And Xoa- It's Jirislou:
A Brisiow's name is being of late much
talked of in a Presidential way, stories of
acts of anything but a reform nature com
mitted by him as secretary of the treasury,
are gaining circulation. It is said to be cap
able of proof that he imported a sharp negro
from he West Indies, named Shaker, to
work up he Brisl ow fever before he Cin
cinnati convention. The Shaker was given
a place in the Charleston custom house, but
he set up as a lawyer at Orangeburg, in the
same State, all the while drawi ng salary from
the custom house at Charleston. suc
ceeded in being se nt to the State convention,
but when he carpet-baggers learned that he
was not Bristow they prevented is getting
in as a delegate to Cincinnati. Then Bristow
removed him from office. Another man
named Chamberlain was sent to Georgia as
an agent of he treasury, but really to work
for the Brist ow interest. proved a de
faulter to the government for several thousand
dollars which money Chamberlain now al
leges was spent to defray expences back home
of he Bristew delegates to Cincinnati.
Chamberlain is now hi the city trying to
make some arrangement to reimburse the
government, and Bristow's recent visit here
is said to have something to do with Cham
berlain's demaird that he use is personal
efforts to get him out of his predicament.
The Income Tax.
Mr. Tucker, of Virginia, a member of the
wa ys and means committee, expressed him
self strongly in favor of the measure, and
just as he had delivered himself, Charley
Foster, of Ohio, passed by.
"You are with on that. Foster, of
course?" called out Mr. Tucker.
"What's that?" inquired the great anti-fili
buster and presidential manipulator.
'The income tax," was the reply.
'\No I ain't," responded Charles, forgetti ng
his grammar in his earnestness. "It's he
ds meanest thing I ever saw. I execrate
it. "When it was in operation before I learned
to hate it. "Why, I know th at men who
didn't want their affairs made public, had to
pap tax on what they didn't own. It's too
inquisitorial. Why every d revenue of
ficer that comes along can poke is no se in
to your business."'
"It's not more inquisitorial than the pres
ent method of taxation," urged Mr. Tucker.
"Oh yes. it is." answered Foster, "under
the pl an of taxation now. not half he prop
erty is returned. Why, in my own town I
know th at not one-third of the personal
property is returned for taxation. N sir, I
shall vote against it."
Mr. Fost er ought to know his constitnents
and neighbo rs by this time, and if he says
they are tax dodgers nobody is going to dis.^
pute it,
,Will He Resign.
[Washington Cor. Cincinnati Enquirer.]
A rumor is in circulation to-night th at
Senator Sherman indicated to tho President
to-day that if the silver bill passed both
Houses of Congress and became a law, that
he should jeel constrained to tender is re
signation. Further that the Preside nt did
not try to dissuade him from such a purpose,
and th at it will not be long before Sherman
is succeeded by Stanley Matthews. I may
be added that these reports are credited in
circles which usually take a conservative
rather than a hopeful view of he average
Washington rumor s.
