the Piesulential party approached, the people
began to assemble at the depot, at the foot of

HASTINGS Minn., bept. *.lh Presidential
paity was in tu,jh spirits when it left St Paul
this moining His excellency looked refreshed
and invigorated after his rest of neaily two
days and all others, having shaken Minneso
ta's dust off their shoes and clothes, looked as
though they were img to a reception instead
of beginning another long and tedious trip.
Devens the man of man} woids ond Jewish
countenance, was more a jolly juvenile than a
dignified jurist, Le Due laid aside his weighty
agricultural load foi the nonce and skipped
about with all tho exu'ierancp of an end man
at a minstri 1 show. Win. Henry Smith flitted
hithgr an 1 tlnthei sleek as a dominie and lm
pntant is a chief magistrate of a nation. The
ladies of the pirty were out their best bibs
and ill went away declaring that they never
hid hid such i good time in their lives as dui
mg their visit to and sojourn in Minnesota.
The enthusiastic St. Pauhtes sent up a loyal
cheei as the ti un diew out of the station,
there was also a dish of music mingled with
the rumb'ing of the cir wheels, and then the
journey to the List became an actuality.
The run from St. Paul to this place was
made in very good time, and without many in
cidents of special import. Although
somewhat behind time when your city
was left, accelerated speed brought us here
nearly up to the schedule. The party returning
is in the main that which arrived in St. Paul on
Thtusday last, although two or three had
dropped out, and gone homo by different routes.
The Piesident is very enthusiastic, or at least
about as enthusiastic as men of high position
dare to be, regarding his Minnesota journey.
While the trim was speeding along towards
Hastings, the GLOBE representative, who has
accompanied the party since it left Chicago,
enjoi ed the ride with a personal friend in the
Piesidential car, and had the pleasure of listen
ing to and joining in a conversation on this sub
Mr. Hayes remarked that while he had on
ono former oscasion had the pleasure of a trip
to the far No'thwest, he had never appreciated
so fully as he did now the vast importance of
the country, and the almost unlimited resources
which it held. Whether it was looked
upon as an agricultural or a manufacturing
State, it was beyond all doubt one of the fore
most in the Union. Where, except perhaps in
California, were such gram fields to be seen,
where were there such milling and lumbenng
facilities' Tho oppoitnnity to visit Minnesota
had been eagerly embraced by him, for under
the circumstances he could see more fully than
he otberwi would be able to the great wealth
which was here spread out by nature for the
hand of man to pluck. Mr. Hayes said it had
not alone been this but his desire to meet the
people also that had been one ot the great in
ducements to the trip. Wherever he had gone
nothing bu
the most flattering reception had
been given him. This he would ever treasure
in his heart, for he appreciated as fully
as one could. this evidence of
kindly feeling which had been displayed
for himself and Mis. Hayes.
There was a flutter .n the heart of every hon
est citizen of Hastings as the Presidential tram
drew into thi9 plaoe this noon. The event was
the greatest one that Hastings had over known.
To be Bare it had felt a thrill of great joy when
its wonderful Le Due had left itR borders to
take the agricultural helm, but Le Due was
sunk into insignificance when it was known
that a live President was to be h.ere. More
than this, there were to be the President and
Le Due jointly, and such an avalanche of great
ness was almost too much for one small town
to endure. When the old sandy-bearded and
white-hatted seed dispenser of the national bu
reau set foot in Hastings, he at once assumed
an air of importance which he had not before
displayed since he left Chicago and it was de
lightful to behold him sailing about in the
crowd of awe-stricken citizens, smiling a
sweet and self-satisfied smile, hob-nobbing with
grangers and making himself geneially the
most officious personage in existence. I was
the first time LeDuc had had an opportunity
to rise to the surface, and as it would probably
be the last, he made the most of it, and took
every opportunity to impress the people with
the dignity of his position and the great im
portance of the agricultural bureau.
There waB, of course a great concourse of
people at the depot toieceive the president, and
they at once began to let off the surplus
enthusiasm whtch had been swelling within
them, just as soon as the train approached
Flags were flying from the various buildings of
the city, the Rtreets handsomely decorated, and
everything betokened a gala day for the hand
some and sightly little place. As the tram
crossed the bridge a gun which was planted
near the depot began firing the Presidential
On the arrival of the train three rousing
cheers were given by the great crowd that had
gathered to see a live President. The band
struck np a lively air and a salute of thirteen
rounds was fired from a noisy piece the
public square. At the depot the President and
party were taken in charge by Mayor Lambert
and the chief marshal Gen Adams The
party were conveyed in carriages through the
main streets amid a throng of people and thou
sands of banners, with the old twelve-pounder
in the public square pealing forth round after
round in rapid succession, headed by the Hast
ings cornet band. The party were taken over
to the Vermillion to look at the wonderful
gorge and the falls that tumble over mural
abutments a hnndred feet in height.
At the falls all hands stepped out of the car
riages anp! instinctively raised their hats as if
in the presence of majesty. The President
was not looking for that kind of a surprise.
The great fall with the mighty chasm over
powered him, and it was some time before he
could fine tongne to speak Mrs. Hayes thought
it would be a dangerous place for children.
Fifteen or twenty minutes at the falls and the
party returned to the residence of
General LeDuc, where a banquet await
ed them This was pai taken of with
a zest that comes of the b-acing climate of
Minnesota, and a little brisk exercise among
her people.
Feasting over, and the party returned to the
urt house, where, for an hour an 1 a half, a
reception was held. From the front entrance
of the building a temporary platform had been
erected, carpeted and decorated with flowers,
evergreens and banners, and above all perched
a live American eagle in all his glory. He was,
indeed, a most royal bird, and he looked down
upon the multitude as if he took the
occasion Of course the platform was
accorded to the distinguished guests, and
one or two members of the press among which
the GLOBE representative was tendered the seat
of honor. A dense throng gathered in the
court bouse square. There had assembled a
general outpouring of Dakota county and a
large fraction of Wisconsin. A half dozen five
minute speeches were indulged in with the
President acting aB master of cere
monies. The address of introduction
of the President was by Mayor Lam
bert, and the address of welcome was delivered
by the chief marshal, Gen. Adams. Both ad
dresses were short but appropriate. The re
marks of the President were brief expressions
of congratulation and gratitude. He was fol
lowed by Gen. Devens about the same strain.
Gen Sibley was then introduced and made a
few telling remarks. The next speaker was
the rutabaga hero, Le Due. After Le Due
came John Jones of Ohio, who was full of
humor, and told some pleasing stories Sena
tor Butler, of South Carolina, was the next
speaker called for but he did not make his
appearance, and Col. Yancy, of Georgia, fol
lowed with some very eloquent and feeling re
was then loudly called for. She was escorted
to the speakers' stand and cheer upon cheer
went up from the multitude on her appear
ance. It was now 5 o'clock, the reception
bioke up and the party returned to the tiam
and pioceeded on to Red Wing, where a sim
ilar programme awaits them.

HASTINGS, Sept. 9.President Hayes and
party left St Paul at 11 35 this morning and
arrived at Hastings at 1 o'clock. The space
about the depot was denselv packed with per
sons. A large delegation of prominent men re
ceived the distinguished guests, bands playing
and cannon firing. The party took carriages
provided to Vermillion Falls, from there tojtho
residence of Gen. Le Due, in the suburbs, bands
and citizens escorting. Mrs. Le Due served an
elegant lunch, and some time was passed in an
informal and extremely social manner. At 3
o'clock an escort of soldiers, fireman, battalion,
temperance societies, and citizens, with brass
bands, accompanied the party to the court
house, where on a platform erected for the pui
pose and handsomely decorated President
Hayes was received by thousands of people from
the city and country about. Tho time was short
and the President only briefrv extended thanks
calling on Gen. De\ ens, attorney general, who
stated that the President seldom shifted
responsibility on the members of his cabinet,
but usually attended to mitters himself. He
referred briefly to his recollections of Minne
sota soldiers during the war and said he was
pleased to meet them again in a time of peace
and compare the change in condition of affairs
At the time of the war for independence, a
great wilderness stood between here and the
ocean. Now great States spread over the
country beyond. We have crowned it in the name
ot liberty, liberty protected by law. He had
come to learn, not to teach. A mere description
cannot do justice to the great northwestern
empire. He had visited regions
vaster than he had dreamed of.

Col. Yancev, of Georgia, eloquently spoke of
the g( od feeling exhibited by the Northwest to
their Southern brothers Gen H. Sibley
welcomed the President in the name of the
Democracy of Minnesota. Judge Thos. C.
Jones, of Ohio, made pleasant remarks and
hoped to see the Northwest cut up into 100 acre
farms. The President presided over the meet
ing, calling out the speakers. All weie receiv
ed with enthusiasm. Calls being made for
Mrs Hayes she stepped forward and was greet
ed with vociferous cheers. At 4 30 carriages
were again taken and the procession
moved through town to the depot.
The city was finely decorated and the street
crowded. I was a great ovation for
so Bmall a place.

REP WIN G, Sept 9 The Presidential party
arrived at 4 30 p. M., and, as at Hastings, were
met at the depot by a great crowd. The pro
giamrne was about the same, marching through
the principal streets, a long line of carriages
and a dense multitude on either side, 40,000
banners of all sizes fluttering from windows
from house tops, from carriages and from the
tips of horses' ears, all over the city. There
was the lumbering old dray horse bespangled
with little banners, the prancing steed gorge
ously bedecked with his country's emblems,
and so in every direction banners were afloat
on the breeze A salute of a dozen
guns woke the echoes and told the people the
joyful tidings. Red Wing never does anything
by halves. A committee met the party at
Hastings and as soon as they were out of the
hands of one committee they were in the hands
of another. I was raising the hat, bowing and
hand-shaking about all the time. Blood will
telL After a great amount of cheering and
much hurrah the distinguished guests were set
down at the St. James Hotel, where a reception
was held and a grand collation par
taken of. The speeches were short,
as usual. President Hayes and
Gen. Devens making the principal ones. Gen.
Meyers made a few remarKs, and the United
States minister from Sweden and Norway,
Levenhaupt, spoke to his countrymen their
native tongue. His remarks are said by those
who understood them to have been very fine.
He congratulated his countrymen who had as
sembled to see the chief magistrate of their
adopted country, on their good fortune hav
ing selected this promising land for their
future homes. He already saw in his mind's
eye a
in this great Northwest, a land teeming with a
dense population of intelligent, hardy and en
terprismg freemen, more opulent than
Golconda, and wiser that Solomon The speak
ing was irom the second story balcony of the
St. James, while the multitude filled the streets
below, and cheered lustily whenever a
good hit was made. Speeches over,
then came the supper in the spacious St. James
dining hall. This part of the programme last
ed until 9 o'clock, so they did not get off until
nearlj an hour later. Their arrival here at so
late an hour of course cut short the daylight
part of the programme The
of the agricultural bureau was more at home
in Hastings, and therefore managed to keep the
pot boiling at that place over four hours. To
night Ked Wing is in a blaze of glory. The
moon is out in all her majestic beauty, the sky
is undimmed by a single cloud and the stars
scintillate in a crystahne fiimament like bub
bles on the water. A thousand bright lights
dance in a thousand places in the cit) and Red
Wing is honored as she never was before. The
head of the nation is here, his family, and a
fraction of his official family. The party is
now boarding the tram, at 9 50, and in five
minutes will be speeding homewaid bound.
Each and every one of them
expressed a heartfelt gratitude
to the people of Minnesota for the
spontaneous, cordial and hearty wel
come that had eveiywhere been extended them,
the people of Minnesota they should ever hold
in sacred remembrancein all their travels and
experience and intercourse with men, they had
never been so heartily welcomed. They should
leave Minnesota with the highest regard for her
people and with exalted ideas of her present
greatness and grand future.

RED WING, Minn., Sept. 9.The Presiden
tial party arrived here at 6 this evening and
was received at the depot by an immense
crowd, bands plajing and people cheering.
The party took carriages and drove the St.
James Hotel. At 6 30 the President appeared
on the balcony and was introduced to the mass
of 6,000 people by Mayor Hodgman, and re
ceived with prolonged cheers His remarks,
only covering some ot the salient points of his
St. Paul speech, were brief, excusing himself
on account of the lateness of the hour.
After concluding his lemarks the President
intioduced the Swedish minister, who delivered
a brief and evidently an eloquent address in
his native tongue, the President remarking at
its close I think he was sound on the mam
After a graceful introduction by the Presi
dent, Gen. Devens, who was greeted with pro
longed applause, said "This welcome I receive
as intended for the President, those subordi
nate to him and the entue people. He repre
sents the sovereignty of the government and is
entitled to your plaudits for that as well as for
his many private virtues. The man nn be
chosen by a party but when he takes his seat
he is the government. All great subjects should
be discussed in every way to reach the right
result. If the government is administered
wisely and well it will be respected by all, and
vice versa. In such times as these, though,
there are points on which we may differ. They
are nothing to those on which we agree, for the
common weal is near the hearts of all. I be
heve we are neai the dawn of a brighter day
when all men shall secure the just reward of
their labors. Although the crops in this sec
tion is not so large as usual, you can give to
every one a comfortable support. In the prayer
learned at our mother's knee and dear to us
whatever be our nationality, is the phrasp
'Give us this day our daily biead,' and the
community is blessed that can say they have
received their daily bread."
President Hayes introduced as the man who
has charge of the weather, Gen. Myers, who
said I am not in the way of making
speeches. I had come to see you as farmers at
farmers' work, and see how my duties can be
made to aid yours. I wish you good fortunes
and good night."
In response to loud calls Mrs.Hayes appeared
and bowed to the people, who cheered vocifer
ously. She retired amid cries of "God bless
you." The party retired to the parlor, and for
nearly an hour the President and wife leceived,
shaking hands with hundreds. After supper

approval of his action. No one here doubts
that he will have Congressional sanction, but
in order to give some assurance Col. McArdie
of Vicksburg, who came hither in behalf of the
yellow fever sufferers, addressed a letter to
Representatives Blackburn, Ellis and Gibson
on the subject. They replied that should it
become necessary to pass a law validating and
ratifying McCrary's action it would certainly
meet with their most cordial support
CicrNiATi Sept. 9 The following cor
respondence explains itself
To Hon. B. M. Bishop
DEAR Sua In your proclamation of the 7th
recommending a day of prayer in behalf of the
yellow fever sufferers, ou call on all Christian
people to assemble on the 13th in their respect
ive churches to offer up prayer to Almighty
God to alleviate the sufferings of the South.
Did you mean by the use of the term "Chris
tian people" to invite to prayer for the allevi
ation of a national calamity, only those citi
zens of Ohio who profess and recognize the
principles of the Christian religion? Respect
(8igned) DANIEL WOLF,
CINCINNATI, Sept. 9 To Messrs. Daniel
Wolf and B. Simon. Dear sirs Your com
munication of this date was received by me
with considerable surprise. My object in rec
ommending a day of prayer for alleviation ot
the scourge which is now afflicting the South
was simply Becure the muted invocation to
Almighty God by all who believed and rec
ognized his goodness and mercy, that he would
interpose His omnipotent power which alone
could save, to stay the progress of the terrible
scourge which was devastating a large portion
of our common countiy. lhe word Christian"
was used by me only as a general
term intending to embrace all who recognized
and relied upon divine protection in the hour
of need and by no means intended to exclude
any sect or creed, belief or school, who would
give a prayer for alleviation of the plague, and
least of all to exclude the people of horn ou
are members who are recognized and illustrious
for deeds of mercy and charity. Respectfully,
Gov. of the State of Ohio.

IIoiv He J'uts Money in IIis I'uine at the
Expense o/ the Public.
[Le Sueur Sentinel.]
One of Strait's organs, tho Shakopee
Courier, publishes what purports to be an
official statement from the State auditor's
office of the major's account with the hos
pital for insane as one of its trustees lh
total number of days that this statement
shows Strait to have been in attendance at
meetings of the hospital trustees foots up
86, and the number of trips made is given
as 21. For these 21 visits and 86 days at
tendance, Strait has leceived from the hos
pital funds a total of $5G3 10. Now let us
see how much of a^ indication of Strait's
honeBty this statement furnishes. Under
the law he could only leceive from the hos
pital a leturn of the money he had actually
paid out for necessary hotel expenses and
railroad fare. Allowing five cents per mile
for railroad farethe hignest ever charged
the fare between Shakopee and St. Peter
would be not ovei $2 50 or $5 00
for each round trip, which
would only make a total of $10.0
leaving $458.10 for hotel bills Dr. Bart
lett testified that the trustees generally took
meals at the hospital at the State's expense,
but suppose we allow Strait 12 per day
the highest hotal rateswhile at bt. Peter,
and 50 cents 'bus fare to and from the cars
each trip, we find that 86 days' attendance
would amount to $172, and the 'bus fare for
21 trips would be $10.50, making a total of
$182.50. Deduct this from $458.10, which
is what is left of the $563 10 received after
deducting full railroad fare, and we have yet
$275.00 that Major Strait has overdrawn, or
nearly one half of the whole sum drawn
from the hospital funds. We have certainly
been liberal in allowing full railroad fare and
the outside charge for hotel accommodations,
notwithstanding the State supplied a
large share of the meals at the hospital.
What then was the $275.60 received for by
Strait, and what legal or moral right can he
show for taking it? The only answer that
can be given is, that the wealthy member of
Congress from this district joined the other
trustees in the general steal ot charging $4.00
and $5 00 per day for attendance, open
violation of law It was equal to $3 20 every
day Strait attended meetings of the trustees,
but it was given in testimony
that the trustees during a few of the earlier
years did not charge and draw per diem for
attendance, $27.' 60 clearly covers the $4 00
and $5 00 per day afterward charged by and
paid to the trustees for attendance. This,
we submit, fully proves that Major Strait has
been a very willing law-bieaker and should
condemn him as a safe law maker.
Honor to St. Paul.

St. Paul and the State Agricultural society
