Tits Republican papers are telling the
Democrats which oandidate of the Demo
crats for President will suit this or that eeo
tion of the oountry. They exhibit a great
deal of solicitude for what ought to ooncern
them but little, and the inevitable conclusion
to be reaohed is that those papers are anx
ious that the Democrats nominate the weak
est man in the party. The advice of enemies
will be taken, no doubt, for what it is worth.
UP to a day or two ago the First National
buik of New York owed the treasnry depart
ment twenty three millions of dollars on ac
count of its subscriptions for four per cent,
bonds. On this account, however, the gov
ernment is paying interest to the bank. The
government derives no benefit whatever from
the investment, but the bank receives at the
rate of nearly a million a year. It looks
like the game of "heads I win, tails yon
AN officious newspaper correspondent has
recently unearthed a letter from Horace
Greeley which accompanied a contribution
for the eleotion expenses of the Maine cam
paign of 1860, in which he warns the re
ceiver not to allow the money to get into the,
hands of the Republican campaign com
mittee, wbom he characterizes as "a tbievisti
and beggarly lot, who will swallow all they
can get." It is very evident that the leopard

HON. CiiABKSON N. POTTEB has accepted
the nomination for lieutenant governor of
New York on the Democratic tioket. He
says he neither desired nor sought the nomi
nation, bat does not think that he has any
right to decline the honor when offered to
him. His duty is to contribute as far at
possible to the nnion and success of the
party, and for that reason he accepts and
promises to do all in his power to aid in
winning victory. The sentiments of Air.
Potter are worthy of all commendation, and
we trust he will succeed in gaining an
GEN. LEW. WALLACE is reported as irate
because the secretary of war refused to per
mit him to raise a company of volunteers
to repel a threatened invasion of Indians
into New Mexico. He hag evidently forgot
ten that the days of a transgression of the
laws of the country are over, and that troops
mast be raised and employed only by due
process of law. He has discovered, also,
that the present force of the government is
sufficient for all purposes, for the rebellion
which he so greatly magnified was suppressed
without the slightest trouble by the few
troops in the vicinity, withoat waiting for
the arrival of others dispatched thither in
the belief that his highly colored dispatches
were somewhere near the truth.
MB. SHEBMAN'S attempt to make political
capital for nso in the Ohio campaign, by ad
vertising that speoie payments would be re
sumed at all the sub-treasuries in the coun
try, was cunningly designed. The at
torney general has pnt a spoke
in his wheel, however, by de cidiug that he
has no right to do sothat the resumption
act permits the exchange of gold for green
backs only at the snb.treasnry at New York.
Mr. Sherman is in a quandary in conse
quence, and the air aronnd the attorney gen
eral's office is particularly sulphurous. Sher
man hoped to make his resumption scheme a
reality within certain limits until after the
Ohio eleotion, but Mr. Devens has knocked
it in the head, and the assertions of the Dem
ocratic orators have been confirmed ont of
the months of their opponents.
ABO LIS a THE BOARD.
We trust that the first work of Congress at
its regular session in December will be the
abolition, without a moment's delay, of the
national board of health. A more useless,
idiotio and hopelessly incompetent body of
fossils is not to be found in tho length and
breadth of the land. Since its institution it
has done nothing whatever save to issne cir
oolars, pronnnoiamentoes and prescriptions,
none of which have been or can be in the
remotest degree hindrances to the progress
of the yellow fever epidemic. A fund of
over three hundred thousand dollars was
placed in the hands of the board for the pur
pose of preventing the introduction and
spread of the disease. How this money has
been expended only infinity can discern. It
is safe to say, however, that the major part
of it has been consumed in paying salaries
expensesreal and imaginaryand printing
We have heretofore called attention to the
manifest incompetency of the members of
this board. Nat one of them has ever had
any experience in the treatment of yellow
fever. They know nothing of the nature of
the disease or of the means necessary to
prevent its introduction, dissemination or
cure. Por a mdnth after it bad been raging
in Memphis they assured the pnbbo, frcm
their office in Washington, that no fever ex
isted in the countrythat #11 the germs of
the disease had been destroyed by the frosts
-u winter. When they were finally forced
to the admission that the epidemic had
broken ont, thirty days after everybody else
in the country had known it, they gravely
informed the public that the germs of the
disease had been imported to Mem
phis from the West Iud i
notwithstanding the faet that
no vessel from those islands has touched at
Memphis for ten years, and that scarcely any
article of commeroe save coffee has reaohed
that oity. They were positive, however, that
tho germs had escaped the quarantine at
New Orleans, had skipped all the intermedi
ate towns and cities on the river, and finally
looated at Memphis. A ohild of ten years
could have given a more sensible opinion
than did these so-called medical men.
But the ohief fault we have to find with
the board, aside from the idiocy and incom
patency of its members, is its refusal to con
tribute to the relief of those suffering from
the disease which they were especially ap
pointed to gnaid against. A day or two ago
the health authorities of Memphis sent a
dispatoh to the secretary of war pioturing
the distress existing there from the ravages
of the fever, and asking that rations for
those in the oamps be issued. The secretary
was in doubt as to his authority to grant the
request, and referred the matter to the
attorney general. That offioial referred bis
visitors, among whom were Postmaster
General Key and Mr. Davis, president of the
First National bank of Memphis, to the na
tional board of health as the only body com
petent to afford relief, saying that under
his late opinion the secretary of war had no
authority to furnish supplies. The officials
of the board of health informed Mr. Davis
that the board of health could not, trader
the law, supply rations for people now in
camp and Memphis, taking the ground that
the aot of Congress creating the board did
not give it authority to disburse funds ex
cept to prevent the spread of yellow fever
from State to State.
The attorney general says the national
board of health can afford relief to- the suf
ferers. The board declare in effect that they
have no such power, but can only expend
the three hundred thousand dollars they
have received to prevent the spread of the
disease across State lines. Any man of
sense knows that the surest way of prevent
ing the contagion is to crush it ont when
ever it exists, and that moneys expended for
that purpose would be clearly within the
meaning of the law creating the
board and making an appropriation
for its maintenance. It is equally clear that
the members of the board know nothing of
their duty andperhaps less of medical science,
and that they propose to steal the entire
amount appropriated without rendering any
equivalent therefor. No board or bnrean
ever organized has developed as great a de
gree of rascality, idiocy and worthlessness.
It has done absolutely nothing to prevent
th* introduction or spread of the epidemic,
save the issuance of certain well known san
itary rules, a proclamation or two and some
antiquated opinions of no value whatever.
It has demonstrated its nselessness, and has
no claim whatever upon the oountry, and we
trust Congress will not delay its abolition an
hour after the assembling of Congress. It
is a pity that as a reward for past pervices
its members cannot be given a permanent
home in some asylum for the feeble-minded.
THE RECORDS OF THE PARTIES.
The comparison of the past records of the
two parties instituted by Mr. Pend'eton in
his Edenton speech is worthy of attention,
for it presents two distinct policies in jux
taposition so that even the most ignorant
can discern which was right -and which was
wrong. The comparison is so manifestly a
fair one that even the most extreme Repub
licans can find no fault with the position in
which his party is placed, though he may
find fault with the deductions drawn. But
these are logical, and cannot be evaded by
any sophistry whatever.
On the currency question the reoords of
the two parties are before the public. The
issue of greenbacks wan thought by the
Democrats to be unconstitutional and illegal
for the reason that they were redeemable
in no form of currency and at no
time. They were not demand notes:
were not receivable for customs, for interest
on the public debt, nor yet for its principal.
The first issue of bonds, however, were ex
changeable for greenbacks, but by dint of the
agencies most employed by capitalists the
law in this regard was changed, and the
bonds were made payable in gold alone, and
a pledge was exacted from Congress that the
issue of greenbacks should never exceedsfour
hundred millions of dollars. The Demo
crats sought to increase the value of the
greenbacks by making them receivable for
duties on customs, and for both the interest
and principal of the public debt, but were
denounced as seeking to repudiate the obli
gations of the government. But it was the
Republicans who were the repndiators. They
directly and distinctly repudiated the green
backsthe money of the peoplewhich
had been accepted by the coun
try in the fojl confidence that
the promise to redeem them would be ful
filled. The Republicans insisted that paper
money was good enough for the common
people, but that gold was the dne of the
bondholder. The Democrats declared that
there should be bnt one currenoy for the la
borer and the bondholderthat if green
backs were paid to the workingman for his
labor, the same currency should be paid to
the capitalist for his bonds.
Soon after the war, when onr revenue was
large and easily collected, besides being
largely in excess of the legitimate require
ments of the government, the Democrats
wanted the debt paid tha\t the interest obli
gations might be removed from the burdens
of the taxpayers. This policy was opposed
by the Republicans, and instead of being
reduced the debt was increased through
the refunding operations. Finely after in
finite labor the greenback has nominally
been placed on a par with gold. But can
gold be obtained for greenbacks? Perhaps
so bnt only by a few who have large sums
which they desire to exchange, and can af
ford to pay the expense of transportation to
New York. The Democratic party has
labored for the remonetization of silver, but
it is not remonetized. It is paid ont at par
by the treasury, bnt the treasury refuses to
receive it in payment of dues, the postoffice
refases it, and the banks refuse it except as
a special deposit, to be paid back in kind.
Gold can be obtained only by the greatest
difficulty, and resumption thus far is a farce.
The only desirable features of onr present
monetary system have been suggested and
brought about by the Democratic party, and
the Republicans are deserving of no credit
for it whatever.
This, then, is the record of the two par
ties on the financial question. Can any one
doubt as to which has been the most cor
rect, and dictated by the highest patriotism
Resumption, suoh as we have, was brought
about by two causes: One the remonetiza
tion of silver to a limited extenta Demo
cratic BKNON earried in opposition to the
Republican policy and party the other an
unusnal abundance of the production of onr
farms and manufactories for which -we can
thank deity alone. Without these two causes
the resumption aot of 1875 would have
failed of accomplishing even the little good
that has been done. The Democratic party
can point proudly to its record. It opposed
an unconstitutional issue of money, but
when it was forced upon the people it ac
cepted it and strove by every means in its
power to elevate it to the dignity which it
was denied at the start. It has finally suc
ceeded in part, and now seeks to place all
the currenoy of the codntry, coin as well as
paper, on the same level, so that it will be
interchangeable at will into any form. In
this endeavor it is opposed by the Repub
lioan party. Time will tell as to which will
succeed, and as to which is the wisest policy.
At present tho results shown are largely in
favor of the Democratic plan.
SEVEBAII correspondents have urged the
nomination of Hon. Samuel Mayall for Gov
ernor by tho Democratic convention on
Thursday. His qualifications have been
presented in so strong a light and he has
been called upon personally and by letter to
such an extent to accept the position that
the prospect of his nomination seems a
good deal mure than a possibility. He ac
cordingly authorizes t to Bay that he is not
a oandidate, and under no circumstances
can he accept the nomination or even serve
if elected. Both health and business would
prevent him from serving, and he declines
to allow his name to be used because he
feels confident that if nominated he would
be elected. Mr. Mayall is a man
who would fill any public position
with dignity and ability. He has
never been in public life in Minnesota, but
he has an honorable public record in the east
and his private life in this State is without a
blemish. If he was a candidate no shafts
oould be truthfully hurled at him. He
stands absolutely aloof from all combina
tions of every description, and has firmness
and sagaoity enough to act for himself
on all publio questions without
being guided or influenced by others. While
positively declining to be a oandidate him
self, Mr. Mayall freely expresses the opinion
that if the Democrats make a good selection
of a man who will organize and conduct a
vigorous campaign, he will be elected. In
this opinion he is doubtless correct.
THE EMMERT BREWERY ROW.
A Cloud of Witnesses bnt t Prisoner
The examination of Joseph Primm, charged
with oultivatiBg a row at Emmert's brewery on
Sunday afternoon with a six-shooter, which
culminated in the wounding of Thomas Ken
nedy and a boy named William Tiernan, was
called in the municipal court at 9:30 o'clock
yesterday morning. Several witnesses were
examined, and the testimony confirmed the
theory that the brewery is made the Sunday
rendezvous of the most degraded plug-uglies
in the city, whose Sabbath saturnalias area
disgrace to civilization and the community.
Thomas Kennedy, the prosecuting witness,
was first sworn, testifying to the origin of the
ruction, which began from a number of de
rogatory remarks on the part of young Em
mert, who applied opprobrious epithetB^to som?
of the crowd, who wc-e ordered to ke" French
leave. Refusing to obey the mandate, several
of the employes of the brewety attempted
force the crowd outside, one of whore wielded
an Indian club with a skill worthy of an nth
lete. Immediately after the crowd had de
bouched, witness heard two shots, one of which
took effect in his left arm, and on looking to
wards the door he recognized Primm as the
William Tiernan, who received a slight
scratch on the right arm, testified to sub tan
tially the same as the previous witness. Wit
ness saw stones thrown at the brewery, simul
taneously with which the prisoner appeared
and fired into the crowd.
John Dunkley, a participant, testified to hav
ing witnessed the bombardment, and to having
heard and seen the prisoner discharge his
weapon into the crowd.
Charles Emmert was sworn, and his testimo
did more to revive the true inwardness of
Sunday matinees at the breweries than all the
rest of the witnesses combined.
Witness said that six of the thugs had
formed a conspiracy to whip an employe
named Andrew Boland. Tne gang was headed
by Mike CroDin, and if one of the sludgers
were thrown nndci the sidewalk they -would
materialize in hfteen minutes ready for a fresh
Witness had ordered the gang to leave, on re
fusing to comply with which he had thrown
two or three of them out. The brewery was
then assaulted with stones, in the midst ot
which a shdt was fired, which called forth sim
ilar responses from the prisoner.
Andrew Boland, the "big man," took the
stand, having a bandanna handkerchief filled
with rocks, which were supposed to have been
hurled at the brewery, and which were not pro
duced as evidence in the subsequent testimony.
Wiines* could not epeat English, bnt his com
mand of vulgarity in that vernacular was as
tonishing for one who could not speak the lan
guage. His testimony was devoid of anything
new, and he was disposed of for the prisoner,
who explained that the shotB had been hred
into the air to "scare" the ciowd. The court
alluded to the disgraceful nature of the oigie.
and advised their discontinuance. The case
was considered one in which all the parties
were equally culpable, in view of which the
prisoner was discharged, with instructions to
the county attorney to use fils judgment about
bringing it before the grand jury. It is under
stood that Mr. Emmert has decided hereafter
to close the brewery^bn Sunday.

THE ST ?APL DAILY GLOBE, TUESDAY MORNING, SEPT. 23, 1879.
Lecture by Gen. Albert Pike, of Arkansas
An Eloqueut Exposition of the Mean
ing of the Symbols Employed by the
General Albert Pike, of Arkansas, comman
der thirty-second degree for the Southern coun
try, or former slave States, and all that west of
ihe Mississippi river, and a gentleman of as
much celebrity in the Masonic world as any
living man, arrived in the city yesterday morn
ing on a visit to the Masonic fraternity.
Last evening he delivered a lecture at Ma
sonic hall to such an audience as could be as
sembled owing to the short notice of time.
Upon being introduced his subject was an
nounced as "The Symbolism and Philosophy
ot Masonry." Upon presentation to the au
dience ne appeared as a gentleman of about 65
or 68 years ot age, of fane portly presence,
with long flowing white hair and beard, giving
to him an appearauce recommending venera
tion and respect, much resembling A. T. O.
Pieraon, Esq., who is known to every Mason in
the State but General Pike baa the advantage
of a more commanding appearance, being ot
ull face, larger, taller and in his carriage more
General Pike commenced by stating
that he had been a Mason since 1850
and had made it a constant study since.
He gave a descriution of the manner of ex
plaining the symbols of the order at the time
he became a Mason and the present day, depre
cating the lack of interpretation, and then
proceeded to explain the symbolism as by him
understood in a clear, forcible and demon
strative manner. He never lacks for words to
express his sentiments, and his flow of lan
guage is, at tiroes, mohtimpressive and beauti
tul. He believes that MaHoary, above all other
ordeis, ties men more closely together, and
that by obeying its precepts men would be
come better that it should not be left at the
door upon leaving the ioage room as doe* the
church-goer, who drops bis Ohnstianty upon
doffing his Sunday clothes, and goes out on
Monday morniug with his every day Buit to
ee who firs' of his fellow kind he can take
advantage of that Masonry is not good for
man, except for the good "it does him in his
daily work. The duty and beauty of Masonry
was to elevate and exalt. The diety was ail
in all to Masons. Ihe lodge room was a sanc
tuary, and the building in which the sanctuary
was situated should be called a
temple. General Pike'B remarks upon
Masonic symbols were highly instructive and
every Mason present felt, upon leaving the
room, that something new had been given him
in Masonic light. He closed by saying that a
symbol, to be of any value, should pach some
profound truth, and with the axiom, *It is
better to love than to hate, and that forgive
ness is better than hate," bade good-night to
his attentive brethren.
To-day Gen Pike visits the brethren of Min
neapolis, where he lectures in the evening, re
turning here to-morrow night, when he works
the thirty-first and thirty-second degrees.
THE POLICE BO IF.
The Mayor Has the Matter Under Advise
Yesterday Mayor Dawson made inquiry into
the difficulty between Police Officers Gibbous
and Johnson, an account of which was given
in yesterday's GLOBE. Tne mayor would not
make his purpose known, but gave orders
that both officers should remain
suspended from duty until the
affair was thoroughly investigated. It is to be
regretted that Officer Gibbons was given cause
for feeling aggrieved, and that he should have
taken occasion to evince it as he did in assault
ing Officer Johnson. The occurrence is to be
deplored, as both officers were in the wrong,
and thtir hasty conduct may lead to their
dismissal, but the hope is generally expressed
that the mayor may See his way out of the un
pleasantness, without reporting to such severe
measures. Officer Gibbons has been four
years on the force, and during that time has
won the esteem of his superiors and citi
zens generally as a careful, energetic and
worthy officerhe has made some of the most
important arrests during that period, which
it has fallen to the lot of our vigilant police

such as to lend to the hope that both officers
will escape any seveie Dnnishment, at least
such as will deprive the force of their contin

Minneapolis Booms for Eugene Wilson*
To the Editor of the Globe:
The old adage that "give a dog rope enough
and he will hang himself," never inspired
greater hope than at present.
The Republican party has had all the rope
in Minnesota, and if it is not hanging itself
some of the dogs at least are eting badly
tangled. While it is only a question of time,
when they will all swing off by their own acts, it
will not do for the Demoeraoy to sit down with
folded hands and wait for this to come to pass.
As long as there is a rope, and a dog to hang,
why not swing him off this fall, without wait
ing for him to commit'self-destruction? It is
no respect to the dog to prolong the day, as
long as all are agreed that sooner or later he
The first and impoitant question to conbider
is: Who is the man to do it? Several good
names have been suggested, but as there is a
majority of fifteen or twenty thousand
to overcome, it iB very necessary
that whoever runs should have
wonderful poling capacity. He may have
every other qualification, but if he lacks in
this one particular he will "get left."
The man suggested by the Faribault Demo
crat possesses polling capacity to an eminent
degree. If Hon. E. M. Wilson can't get there,
it is useless for any one else to try.
In 1868 he ran against two men for represen
tative to Congress and beat them both. He
could have beaten a dozen just as well.
He has been twice mayor of Minneapolis.
He made the best executive officer the city ever
had. He was first elected over Hon. Dorilus
Morrison, -when Mr. Uonuon held the office to
which he had been elected the jear before, by
a majority of 2,000. But when he ran against
Mr. Wilson for the third term, he was elected
to stny at home by a majority of about 1,000,
and he has stayed there ever since. These
statements are 'made from memory, and
if they are not correct I will refer you to
Dorilus he can tell you all about it.
Mr. Wilson has been twice city attorney of
Minneapolis. The office was never filled with
greater honor and ability.

Last fall, when Hennepin county was Bhaken
by a Republican earthquake, Mr. Wilson was
the only man who was not buried clear out of
sight. When Gen. Washburn (Republican)
had thirty four hundred majority for repre
sentative to Congress, our "Jack, the Giant
Killer" was elected to the State Senate, over a
popular opponent by a majority of thirty-four,
less the hundreds. Al the other candidates on
the Democratic ticket were buried so deep they
have never been beard from Bince. But tbey
could not bury Mr. Wilson. Like "Columbia,
the gem of the ocean." he rode "safe through
If nominated for Governor he will run like
a "steer in the corn." He will carry Hennepin
countythat will go a good ways towards beat
ing Pillsbury. The gentlemen who meet in
convention next Thursday to make nomina
tions must not forget that Hennepin is the
pivotal county. I do not say that it is Lord
over all the rent, bnt it has the elements of a
Lord. It is a jealous county.
I would not pass wholesale condemnation
upon every member of the Republican party
if I could, for there are some noble men within
its ranks as there are in all parties, and two
parties are necessary. I have not a word to
say against Gov. Pillsbury personally, as a
man and a citizen. But there are several good
reasons why be should not hold the office any
longer. The only qualification claimed for
him by any one in, that "he is honest." That
he has never been caught stealing anything
we will grant all thisbut for the reputation
of the State I think the people ought to scour
around and see if there is
not another man who can be trusted in the
office, so that we can publish to the world that
Minnesota has two honest men in it, instead of
only one, as it now appears. YJU see, if we
could find an honest James, or an honest
William, to put along by the side of "honest
John," it woutd double the morals, and raise
the reputation of the State at once a hundred
per cent. In view of these great advantages,
the people should invite Mr. Pillsbury to step
down and out for the present at least, nntil
this point can be determined. To run him
term after term, on tne sole ground vf honesty,
without any other superior qualifications, is
an insult and an imputation against the honor
of every man in the State, and should be re
sented at the polls. It will be, if Mr. W.lson
Another reason why it is not wise to continue
Mr. Pillsbury in office any longer at the present
time is, be can not live always, any more than
George Washington or Abraham Lincoln
could, and the people ought to try
some other man if possible before
he dies, so if it is found that he is the only
one who can be trusted in the office, he can be
put back, and get things straightened out be
fore he goes hence. Let us have another man
in training while Pillsbury is living. Another
reason why he should not be elected to the
office again right away, is that whether he is
honest or dishonest no party can afford to keep
a political heron. I never owned a bird called
the heron, but those who know all about it
outside and inhave told me that this bird has
but one intestine, and that runs straight
through it without a twist or a turn. It is ex
tremely fond of fish it spends all of the time
fishing only when it is on the roostthen it
appears to be dreaming about it. It is always
hungry, it can't keep anything in the place
where its stomach ought to be long enough to
get fat or become satisfied. Owing to its peon
liar nstruction it no sooner swallows a fish
tran it has to turn around and catch it right
It repeats this operation, until the fish is
either worn out or gets away. It is no disre
spect to say, that in a political sense, the Gov
ernor resembles one of those birds. He has
swallowed and re-swallowed the same office so
many times, without being satisfied, that it
looks like an uncertainty as to whether he can
be filled up or noteverything Beems to run
right through him. He was just as hungry on
the third term as he was the first, and there is
no guarantee that he will not swallow the
fourth more ravenously than any other. The
people would feel rather cheap if they should
find that they have been trying to fill up an
endless cavity, or one open at both ends.
Every thing indicates that we should stop and
investigate, and that there should be a change
long enough to determine a few certain truths.
Give us Wilson and we will make that change.
Yours truly, BtJDD RXEVE.

To the Editor of the Globe:
ST. PAUL, Sept. 22.Coming to your city
this morning I received a copy of the GLOBB.
The article alluding to Edmund Rice struck
me foroibly and carried me back to the day
when Democrats adhered unblashingly to first
principles. I have alluded to the article, now
a word as to Mr. Rice.
First, as to the unfortunate poor, Mr. Rice
has ever been their friend and helper. Second
as to railroads, he has been the pioneer to open
up all this State to all the world and come ont
poor, simply because he was honest and would
not be bribed nor steal. To-day railroads are
a success, and bis last days will be spent to
give the people who have" settled on the vast
prairies of this State the benefit of railroads as
common carriers, sheared of all monopoly and
pools. Mr. Rice is a gentleman at home and
abroad. He can walk no street or hall in any
State but bis gentlemanly presence commands
respect, and all men can approach him as the
most open-hearted and benevolent man on
earth. Twenty-five years tells this same story.
In "short, he is a gentleman, scholar, lawjer
and humanitarian. Give him the governorship,
and he will give to the people of this State an
executive whom all the- States will baaac, aa&
alt the doming generations of this State will be
proud, and his name will live as the second
HUta Wright or the Cato of America.

SCOT* COUNTY FAIR.
A PincHiaplav but lApht Attendance.
[Correspondence of the Globe.
This is the third and last day of the fair held
under the auspioeaof the ticott County Agri
cultural society. The weather baa been re
markably pleasant, the exhibition good, but
the attendance light.
Among those most prominent and energetic
in the management of the fair were the presi
dent and secretary, Messrs. J. G. Bass and
Charles Bonarth, assisted by S. Strait, Gapt.
J. W. Sencerbox, and othe* influential citizens
of the county.
The display of fruits and vegetables were
particularly creditable. Of the former
a fine display was made by
Mr. L. B. Hawkins, of Maple Glen, in the town
of Spring Lake. Mr. Hawkins is a remark
able man. He is perhaps 65 years of age, an
old settler in the county, an experienced farm
er and horticulturist, a man of great research
and knowledge, a scientist, a pbil tsopher and
poet. The apples exhibited by Mr. Hawkios
are of the dwarf, a small variety peculiarly
adapted to small orchards in towns and cities.
A. B. Riggs, pioneer farmer of Eagle creek,
exhibited some very large and beautiful apples,
the product of the "Morrison seedlings" grafted
into the common crab.
J. R. Lowell, proprietor of the Eden Prairie
nursery, made a fine display of apples and
grapea, quite a large variety o each, and o.ex
Mr. Battenberger, of Eagle creek, diBpsyed
a large and excellent variety and quality of
Capt. Senserbox exhibited some ne plus ultra
potatoes, both as to quality and quantity
raised to the acre. Edward Smith, of Eagle
Creek, had a fine display of apples, tomatoes,
etc. D. D. Dickcrson exhibited some very
clear and good amber syrup, J. G. Bass some
very fine amber sugar, and' Mrs. J. G. Bass ex
hibited some excellent butter, honey, jellies,
etc. To the former (the butter) the blue rib
bon was attached. There were also other su
perb jellies, pickles, preserves, butter, etc., ex
hibited by Mrs. Stevens, Mrs. Bradey, Mrs. Sny
der, Miss Turner and others.
The proprietors oft he large and well equipped
flouring mill of tfhakopee, Messrs. G. F. Strait
Co., made a small but choice display of
mashed wheat, middlings, bran and flour,
which illustrated to the practical miller the
system or process through which the wheat is
taken and the satisfactory results obtained.
Ttere was a small display of stock. Mr. J. G.
Bass exhibited some ten head of grades, and a
humorous and jocular gentleman from the
Emerald Isle (whose name we did not learn)
exhibited some good Jerseys. There were a
few good sheep, poultry and hogs.
There was a very creditable display of fine
arts, needlework, etc A case of beautiful
worsted flowers made by a little girl 11 years
old, named Maggie Bollinger, attracted much
attention and received favorable comment,
though not the blue ribbon, which it certainly
"A basket quit neatly and substantially made
by a lady 72 years of ago, also merited the rib
bon. Two or three other quilts were exhibited
by the same lady. Mrs. William Fewer ex
hibited a neat patch quilt. Mrs. Catherine
Tniem obtained the ribbon for a patch quilt.
A beautiful piece of embroidery, chenille on
black velvet, received a red ribbon, it should
have been blue. Also handsome embroidery,
silk on silk, whioh obtained the blue ribbon.
These were made and exhibited by Miss Cora,
A handsome bed spread, manufactured and
exhibited by Mrs. J. B. Allen, of Jackson. Mrs.
Alien, the year 1813, in the
State of Kentucky, planted the cotton
seed, picked the cotton when ripe, carded,
spun and wove the quilt with her own hands.
Mrs. Allen also exhibited some good butter
worked into fantastic shape by her own hands.
Some fine pencil sketches by Miss Mary
Lincoln elicited favorable comment, and
should have had a ribbon. Mrs. Sprink ob
tained a blue ribbon for fine cotton tidy.
Handsome and neatly executed silk embroidery
on white flannel,and silk worsted on cloth, also
fancy dress apron, exhibited by Mrs. H. B.
Strait, merited a premium.
A pair of neatly-knit woolen stockings, by
Mrs. Phoebe Darward, of Eagle Creek, aged 73
years also a pair by her granddaughter, Miss
Olive Turner, a younu lady of 19. It is diffi
cult to tell which most deserves congratula
tion, the old lady for her good health and skill
or the yousg lady for skill and good sense. We
say good sense, because of the display of her
skill and industry in so practical a manner.
Miss Turner also took two er three pr. miums
for Boston brr.wn bread, preserves, mapie
syrup, pickles, etc.
Mrs. James Heth, wife of mine host, took
two premiums for cotton tidies.
There was a good display of flowers, chiefly
by ladies of Shakopee. Mr. Thomas E. Turner
took blue ribbon for be-t general assortment
of vegetables and fruit. Mr. John Eller stood
next in fine display of vegetables and fruit.
Altogether the fair was a very creditable one
and much praise is due to the managers and
exhibitors for the interest and energy they have
evinced throughout. The propitious weather
and the social and agreeable manner of those
in charge contributed greatly to the pleasure
of all in attendance.

The local papers of the State are uttering
timely warnings to the farmers to institute
precautionary measures to guard against prairie
fires. Now that the frost is killing the graRs it
is becoming very combustible, and fires will
soon begin to run. The grass is reputed to be
heavier and of greater beighth than it hap been
for many years, and hence the fires will be un
usually intense and fierce. No farmer should
neglect to plow aronnd his fields, and especially
round stacks and buildingsand in cise ot
high wind, unless there is a broad belt of
ploughing, the fire will skip over.
The OWatonna Review gives a somewhat ex

being suspected they were "shadowed" bv the
sheriff and marshal. In their absence "from
their room their trunk was examin
ed and several thousand dollars in good money
found, and valuable jewelry amouuting to a*
much more. While the officers delayed ar
resting them, probably Dot having sufficient
proof to hold tbem, they "skipped" the town,
just as the officers had got ready to nab them,
and their present whereabouts iB unknown. A
great deal of counterfeit money has recenth
got into circulation, and these parties are sap
posed to belong to a gang who are putting it
in circulation. The officers are still in search
of the handsomely dressed "husband and
wife, and the gang.
