We understand that the engravers
have not furnished the plates for Gen.
R. W. Johnson's book — life of Gen. Geo.
H. Thomas— at the time they agreed to do
so, and hence there will be some de-
Jay in getting the work from the publish

book will be ready for delivery.
The public will sympathize sincerely
with Col. L. L. Baxter, for many years
associated with our legislative affairs, in
the affliction that has overtaken him by
the death of his estimable wife, which
occurred last Thursday. Mrs. Baxter was
la most estimable lady, deeply loved by al
who knew her, and her loss will be keenly
felt by a large circle.
Minnesota's new Senator, Gen. A. J.
Edgerton, did not permit the grass to
grow under his feet yesterday, but as
coon as his commission had been safely
deposited in his pocket, started on the
first train for Washington to help organ
ize the Senate. He carries the best wishes
of the Globe, which, while still of the
opinion that Ramsey was the people's
and the governor's first choice, bows sub
missively to the inevitable.and will fond
ly cherish its little Ramsey boom till
another office becomes vacant.
TVnrooM will not be permitted to re
cline on a bed of roses during his In
cumbency of the position of secretary oi
tbe treasury. Wall street speculators
are not exactly pleased with his treat
ment of the bulldozing banks-- -althougl,
the act was Garfield's rather than Win
dom's---aud propose to be revenged b\
throwing every obstacle in his way.
Windom, however, wields no little power,
and if he chooses to exercise it he can
give the banks no end of trouble. What
ever backbone the secretary lacks can be
supplied by the President.
A Washington dispatch mentions it as
"a remarkable coincidence" that, Russia
having expressed sorrow for the assassi
nation of President Lincoln, the State de
partment should have sent dispatches of
similar import to St. Petersburg relative
to the tragic death of the czar. "Where
the coincidence comes in will be a puzzle
to an ordinary intelligence. There is cer
tainly nothing remarkable in the fact
that the Russian government should ex
press sympathy for the relatives of the
murdered President, nor that the United
States should act in like manner -when
the tragedy happened in Russia.
Got. Pillsbury concluded the Senatorial
distress yesterday by the appointment of
Gen. A. J. Edgerton to fill the vacancy
occasioned by the resignation of Mr.
"Windom. This appointment is credita
ble to the governor as well as agreeable
to the recipient. Gen. Edgerton is a
gentleman who will undoubtedly reflect
credit on the State. He shows his good
sense at the outset by declining
the "compromise" proposed by Cole and
accepting the situation with all that that
implies. The new Senator is a thorough
ly reliable man, and his time will be
honestly given to his constituency. The
Globe congratulates both Gen. Edgerton
and Got. Pillsbury upon the happy ter
mination of the contest.
The death by violence of the Czar
Alexander although it has excited hor
ror, has created no surprise. For years
past — almost ever since his accession to
the throne — he has been menaced not
only by his personal enemies but by the
enemies of his dynasty. These have been
animated by a hate almost fiendish in its
malignity and causelessness, and have
persisted in their fell purpose in the face
of every discouragement.
Viewed by the modern standard the
czar was not a blameless ruler, yet in
comparison with his predecessors his
sway has been most benificent to the em
pire. The emancipation of the serfs was
nn act which alone entitles him to be
ranked among the greatest men of the
ago and a benefactor of the race. This
act provoked the hostility of the nobles
of the empire, and for many years threat
ened to overturn the dynasty; but
having decreed emancipation he stood
firmly on the ground that human
vassalage should cease forever.
Those who were freed by his ukase,
however, have but ill requited his kind
ness, for it is to them his death, either
directly or indirectly, can be attributed,
for among the former serfs the heresy or
nihilism had its chief support. These
people may not have been the active
agents for carrying out the conspiracy,
but they were at the bottom of the dis
turbances that have for so long distracted
the empire, and without their encourage
ment the no-government party would
have,had but a feeble existence.
Nihilism in Russia is contemporaneous
with communism in France. It is an es
crescence that owes its origin to bad gov
ernment, from which it seeks relief in the
destruction of all law and the inaugura
tion of a reign of anarchy. It is the anti
podes of despotism, and even more to be
feared, for it would destroy all social
order and give us nothing in its stead. It
is more intolerant, more cruel, more des
potic than the worst autocracy the world
has ever seen. Chaos is its idol, the as
sassin's knife or bullet the arbitrators
between man and man. It is monstrosity
hideous in its deformity.
The assassination of Alexander, instead
of proving to be the signal for the eman
cipation of the Russian people from
despotism, will only serve to perpetuate)
it. A great crime such as this always
seals the doom of the cause for the ad
vancement of which it is perpetrated,
and rightly so, for a cause nurtured in
crime and disregard for law can excite no
sympathy in this enlightened age. In
place of the great uprising of the people
against the dynasty that was expected to
follow the regicide, there ha 3 already
been a widespread revulsion of feeling
that bodes no good to the advocates of or
the apologists for the foul deed. The edict
has already gone forth that nihilism must
be crushed — that the advocates of nothing
in government must be reduced to noth
ing — must be exterminated from the face
of the earth. In the pursuit of those who
have done his father to death, the new
czar will have the hearty sympathy of the
whole civilized world. It is not a question
of whether the Russian autocracy is right
or -wrong, but a choice between organized
government on the one hand and assassin
ation and social disorder on the other
The revolutionists not only in Russia, but
throughout the world, will find themselves
hoist by their own petard.
As a monarch Alexander has been ac
tuated by a sincere regard for the wel
fare of his subjects as far as such a de
sire could comport with the aggrandize
ment of the empire. Like all the Roman
offs he has been consumed by a passion
for extending the domain over which he
ruled. Wars were undertaken for that
purpose; European councils have been
distracted by intrigues having that result
in view, and large standing armies have
been maintained all over the continent,
either to assist or to prevent the consum
mation of this ambition. Most of the ills
that have cursed and impoverished his
subjects have been traceable to this in
lierited ambition. But notwithstanding
all this he has been a beneficent ruler in
many respects. He has established
schools and colleges, maintained religious
liberty, built railroads, developed indus
try, and -wonderfully increased the re
sources of his domain. Russia has ad
vanced in all the arts of civilization
more during the twenty-six
years of his reign than during
the hundred years preceeding his acces
sion. He has patronized the fine arts,
literature and the modern sciences, and
contributed greatly towards bringing
about the time when Russia shall take her
place in the front rank of civilized nations,
tlis assassination delays that time by a
quarter of a century. If he had died a
natural death the progress of the empire
would have been steadily forward. His
tragic taking off will drive his successor
into a reactionary policy that cannot but
retard the progress of the nation.
Though Alexander is dead, both the
good and the evil he has wrought will
live after him. He was no saint, but
did much for his people, for which he will
be kindly remembered by the world. Few
men with despotic power would have at
tempted as much; no one without that
absolute sway could have accomplished
such beneficial results. He might have
left a more illustrious record behind him,
but if all men were judged by what they
might have done, none would be found

Couldn't Settle for $1.35 and Wants a
A colored individual named Anderson
ambled into tha police court yesterday
morning and asked to see the gemmeD
who made out the warrants, whereupon
the genial Fairchild pricked up his ears
and came up smiling. The son of Ham,
who is a shiftless looking African, carried
his arm in a sling, and his nose, eyes and
mouth were, in a state of perpetual
blubber. He said he had been cut and
that he "wanted justice. The clerk
asked him how much of the article he
would like to have. He replied that
while fooling with an employe of the
Hotel of the Wild Hunter, last' Saturday
the latter cut him in the head. He said
he had actually had the liberty of that
person in keeping for two days. Sunday
night he called on him for a compromise:
he offered to settle for $1.50; the bean
fiend couldn't see him; then he offered to
square it for $1.25, and yet
the hotel man wouldn't settle.
He said he -was convinced now that the
cutting had been done on purpose and he
wanted the man arrested. The clerk
stated that he had better come down
another peg on his price, call it an even
dollar and settle. The hungry looking
coon humped himself out.
Death of Mrs. L. L. Baxter, of Cbaska,
Col. L. L. Baxter, one of the most influ
ential and hard-working members of the
lower house of the late legislature, was
in the city yesterday. The Globe regrets
to learn he has sustained a severe afflic
tion since the adjournment of the legis
lative session in the death of his beloved
wife. She was taken ill with puerperal
fever the day after his return from St.
Paul, and notwithstanding the services
of Dr. Hand, of this city, were called to
her assistance, she sank steadily, dying
on Thursday last, leaving an infant child
and boy of three years. Col. Baxter has

Dame Rumor Proposes Mr. Robert Harris
(or President of the Northern Pacific,
With neadquarters at St. Paul— The St.
Paul & Imlut li Road and the St. Paul &
Manitoba Company— The Great Snow
Barriers in the Southwest Countles-The
Missouri Flood at Bismarck— Personals,
The snow fall of last night fell quietly lure.
If it exteuded to the prairie regions and was
accompanied by a high wind, little as there Is
of It, it is enough to add to the troubles of
railroad operators.
The Hastings A Dakota extension was yester
day again open to Bird Island.
The Northern Pacific had no trouble from
the storm of Friday and Saturday.
Mr. H. C. Davis, assistant passenger agent
of the St. Paul & Manitoba company, arrived
here yesterday from the East.
Messrs. Winter and Hatch of the Omaha line
went out the other day to look at the snow
drifts on the St. Paul division beyond Man
kito. They found a 6now carrying zephyr
playing over the prairies and concluded that
business required their immediate return to
St. Paul. But yesterday Mr. Winter went out
again, and he may get on the west side of a
bier snow drift.
The Blue Earth branch of the Omaha line
will probably be reopened to-day.
Dispatches from Bismarck yesterday to
General M inagcr Sargent stated that the Mis
snuri at that point was bank full but the ice
still held solid.
The very latest*rumor regarding the ex
pected changes in control of Northern Pacific
uffrtira in this region is that at the meeting of
directors to be held Thursday ftext in New
York, Mr. Robert Harris, now general mana
ger of the New York, Like Erie & Western
road, w:ll be elected president or vice presi»
dent of the Northern Pacific company, and
that thereupon Mr. Harris will at once re
move (with his family) to St. Paul, and on the
Ist of next month assume chief executive
control of all affairs of the Northern Pacific
company in the Northwest. If this or any of
the similar rumors which hare lately been
siarted should prove true, it will ap
pear that the company has concluded
to reverse the policy which has caused Gen
eral Manager Sargent to tender his resignation
and will hereafter trust its interest to a repre
sentative onj the spot, without interference
from New York.
A gentleman who may be supposed to be
well informed as to the relations of the St.
Paul & Duluth railroad company with other
railroad companies, has informed the Globe
that the recent trip to Knife Falls and Duluth,
of General Manager Hill, of the St. Paul &
Manitoba company, was more for pleasure or
rest than on business. He says that no sale of
stock or transfer of interest has occurred,
but adds that the St. Paul & Dulutli road is
open to the St. Paul & Manitoba or any other
company which may wish to obtain right
of way over it, in such manner as the Miune
apolis & St. Louis company has obtained its
right of way.to Duluth. He says, also, that
while he could imagine circumstances under
which the St. Paul & Manitoba company
might desire to use the St. Paul & Duluth
track, yet whether those circumstances will
arise must depend on the railway building of
this season, and perhaps a year or two more.
Th« memory of the oldest settler of south
western Minnesota, and his experiences date
back more than a 6core of years, cannot re
call a season in that region of such deep snows
and constant high winds as have been ex
perienced there this winter. And railroad
men certainly never before for
so long a time found it
impossible to clear a ioug line of track of
snow. The experiences on the Hastings &
Dakota beyond'Glencoe, on the Northwestern
beyond New Ului and on the western part of
the Southern Minnesota have been even harder
than on the St. Paul & Sioux City road; but
concerning the last more has been made
public. The present situation on this linetn
road through the prairie may be judged from
there being two feet of fresh snow at St.
James, which fell Friday and Saturday last.
At Heron Lake station Sunday, before the
locomotives could be brougnt from their
stalls (where they were placed Thursday
night) to the main track the switch track for
four hundred feet had to be relieved of a
twenty-feet drift of snow. Yesterday morn
ing a snow train from Sioux
City had reached Hospers, fifty
miles this way from Sioux City, when
at 10 A. M. a enow 6torm, which was first
heard of at Omaha, reached Sioux City and
commenced to move up the line, compelling
a recall of the snow train. The Sioux City
division, which has not been at any time
wholly open since Jan. 27th, cannot be cleared
before Saturday night next, with most favor
able weather conditions. On the St. Paul
division, which Ins only about twenty-four
miles of track exposed to prairie snows and
■winds,t« enty miles had been cleared.JYesterday
afternoon and this morning's train will prob
ably run to St. James, the end of the division.
That is, if the Omaha storm, or the snow »f
which we had a little here last ni ght, has not

Feeling that the information conveyed will
be of material benefit to many of yoxir readers,
I send you the following: One of our oldert
citizens, Captain C. W. Boyuton, the goyern
tnent light house keeper at this point, is
probably one of the oldest seamen in America,
having sailed twenty-six years on onr lak.«,
and twenty years on salt water. After this
forty-six years service his eyesight failed him,
■md for a Ion? time he kept the light at Chica
go, until the government buiit the Gross
Point light here, when he wjts trensferred.
Whilp seated in my store this morning the
captain volunteered the following written state
"This is to certify that I have been afflicted
with rheumatism for twenty (20) years, both
in my sides and limbs. I am happy to say,
that after using less than two bottles of the
St. Jacobs Oil, lam entirely free from pain,
thongh stitl limping somewhat when walking,
from long force of habit."
C. W. Boyxton.
Referring to the foregoiug facts, I might
allude to numerous similar cases that have
come to my notice, "but a word to the wise
is sufficient." JohnGoebel,

An Uneven, yet Interesting Rendering—
"Richelieu" To-Night.
The public has been led to expect much of
Kecne in Hamlet, and the audience of last
evening testified to the curiosity of the St.
Paul theater-goers, if to nothing else. The
tragedy is, perhaps, more familiar to theater
goers than any other of Shakspeare's creations,
und its rendition has been attempted by every
actor who has essayed tragic roles, but by few
with success. Keene's Hamlet can be classed
neither as a success nor as a failure. Hitherto
people have regarded the character as in
tended to depict a phase of insanity
manifesting itself in confirmed melan
choly. Keene depicts the young prince in
a perpetual fage, only occasionally
relieved by spasms of bitter satire, and with
none of that "antic disposition" which he
promises to assume. He displays all the
cunning that inheres in the role, and in action
carries out to the full the horror that his
mother's and his uncle's crime inspired in his
breast. In the first parts of the play he is not
strong, either as an elocutionist or an actor,
slurring some of his lines and running others
together by too hurried articulation. The
soliloquy, "To be or not to be," was not
artistic. It was more of a declamation than a
solitary meditafiou, and much of the meaning
with which the words are pregnant was
obscured in consequence. His passages with
Polonius and Ophelia were also lacking in that
subtle element that gives to the railery of the
sentences their barb and sting. In view of
these extremely ordinary readings, the audi
ence was not prepared for the bursts of brilliant
acting that succeeded. The play scene was a
masterly 6troke of genius, and the chamber
interview with the queen mother electrical.
It was a passage full of fire, thrilling in its
intensity, terrible in the force of invective
hurled upon the devoted head of the hapless,
sinning woman. It has never been surpassed
by any living actor, and was a proof that the
artist is capable of achieving the highest rank
among the exponents of tragedy. The
graveyard scene was also a strong,
well acted passage. The delineation
of the character, while not satisfying as a
whole, was well worth the witnessing. If it
was less uneven some of the imperfections
might be overlooked. The fact that Mr. Keene
displays so much brilliancy in some passages,
while in others he barely rises above medi
ocrity, leads to the suspicion that he is not as
thorough a student as a master of tragedy
should be, though it is at the same time a
convincing proof that his capabilities have
not been overestimated.
With the exception of the Ophelia of Miss
Vaders, and the gravedigger of Mr. Everham —
the latter a mere incident of the play — the
support was simply execrable. The droning
monotone of the ghost was exasperating in
the highest degree, and the mouthings of the
rest of the cast almost insufferable. The
greatest actor who ever lived could not give a
satisfactory performance with 6uch support,
and Mr. Keene will find to his cost thai he
cannot do so.
To-night Mr. Keene will appear as "Riche
lieu," at the matinee to-morrow "Hamlet"
will be repeated, and to-morrow evening the
engagement will close with "The Fool's Er
rand." On Thursday evening the company
will give a performance of "Richard III." at
Eau Claire en route for the East.
It Meets at its New Rooms- Plans forits

rooms in the Market house. There was a full
The secretary read sundry letters from per
sons in the East, •ympathizing with the so
ciety in their loss, which the writers -were
led to infer,bv the telegrams in the Associated
Press news, was almost total. The secretary
was ordered to prepare and send out a circular
correcting these impressions, and informing
Eastern friends that it is continuing its work,
Theo. G. Carter, of St. Peter, was elected an
active member.
The following resolutious were unanimously
Resolved, That the Minnesota Historical
society hereby returns its most grateful thanks
to its nnmercus friends who so nobly aided in
preserving its library and museum from loss
•n the evening of March 1, and our acknowl
edgment of the fact that, but for their gener
ous and energetic efforts, on that occasion, our
valuable colltction would have been lost.
Resolved, that our thanks are due, and are
hereby, gratefully tendered to Rev. W. C. Gan
nett, and to other members of Unity church
for the kiudly and welcome offer of their
church building as a place of deposit for the
property carried out from our rooms, and
much of which, but for this convenient and
acceptable place of refuge would have suffered
great loss.
Resolved, that our thanks are also due tc
Col. A. Allen, managing director of the St.
Paul Market flionse, for his efforts to have
onr present quarters made comfortable and
pr operiy prepared for our use.
Some debate occurred on the question as
to what permanent quarters the society should
seek to secure. A proposal was made
that an effort be put forth to build afire-proof
building for the society's own use. This was
generally considered to be impracticable just
now, and the best thing that could be done
would be to reoccupy the old quarters in the
capitol, but make them fire-proof. The mat
ter was referred to the committee on building.
Removing the Debris of the Old Capitol
Gov. Pillsbury yesterday, after thor
oughly considering the condition of the
walls, etc., of the burned capitol building,
and the unsatisfactory character of most
of the bids for removing the debris, de
cided that the interests of the State would
be best subserved by declaring all bids
off; which was done. He then secured
the services of Martin Nelson, the old
street inspector, and for several
years with the -water works
company as superintendent, and directed
him to employ as large a force of men
and teams as could be worked judicious
ly, to remove the debris, and tear down
and remove such portion of the walls as
cannot be utilized in rebuilding. Mr.
Nelson not only has experience, but is
energetic and thorough, and will
not allow the work to tarry
on his hands. And besides,
by this plan Got. Pillsbury can himself
see that the work is quickly and
well done, while under a letting he
would be unable to interfere,

Gen. Edgerton Scoops in the Senatorship
and Starts for Washincton.
The Senatorial agody is over, and Gor
don E. Cole, Mark Dunnell and Gen.
Baker can now turn their attention to
their every-day affairs. At 10:30 yester
day forenoon Gov. Pillsbury handed Gen.
A. J. Edgerton his commission as United
States Senator, to fill the unexpired term
of Secretary Windom. As the general
received the document for the possession
of which there had been such a warm,
and not altogether honorable contest in
some particulars, by at least one of
the trio named above, his hand trembled,
his face flushed, and a glad light crept
into his eyes, showing that he deeply felt
and appreciated the honor the governor
had done him in the appointment.
After receiving his commission Gen.
Edgerton remained at the captol
only long enough to say good-byo to the
governor and other State officials, when
he took his leave to prepare for his depar
ture for Washington. Soon after a
Globe reporter met the general,
who said he should leave for
Washington by the noon train on the C,
M. & St. P. road to Chicago, thence by
the Pittsburgh & Fort Wayne and Penn
sylvania Central to the capital, going
direct through without a stop, which, if
not delayed, would bring him to his desti
nation Wednesday night. Before his de
parture he was warmly congratulated by
a large number of our leading citizens,
both Democrats and Republicans, upon
his success in getting the prize so
earnestly sought by so many o thers.
The New Judges of the Supreme Court Ap-
pear and Are Sworn In.
By the 1:30 p. ir. train from Winona,
yesterday, Judge Wm. Mitchell, one of
the recently appointed associate justices
of the supreme court, reached this city.
After refreshing the inner man with a
comfortable dinner, Judge Mitchell, ac
companied by Hon. Greenleaf Clark, the
other new appointee in the supreme
bench, proceeded to pay their respects to
Chief Justice Gilfillan, at the supreme
court room, where the three gentlemen
were closeted for some two
hours, at the conclusion of
which the new appointees qualified by
subscribing to the oath of office, which
was duly filed on record with the secre
tary of state, and they are now full-fledged
associate justices of the supreme court of
the State. By virtue of this, they have
become qualified to sit with the other
judges of the court, if otherwise eligible,
as a board of arbitration to pass upon the
