ST. PAUL, MONDAY, FEB. 20, 1882.
The communication from "Justitia"
which we print this morning, 'raakes some
suggestions which the enterprising busi
ness men of St. Paul would do well to
consider. The attempted monopoly of
the Minneapolis millers leads the farmers
to look elsewhere for relief. If St. Paul
is awake to her own interests she will see
that the relief is afforded.
Minnesota was evidently not very
prompt in availing herself of the Nation
al Bank act. The charters were granted
to run twenty years, and a large number
will expire this year, and a still greater
number in 1683. Minnesota only has
one charter expiring in either year, and
that is the First National of St. Paul,
which terminates February 25, 1883.
So long as Russia permits the barbar
ous treatment of the Jews so long will
she be ostracised as a cation from all
sympathy in her troubles with the Nihil
ists or other internal dissensions. The
assassination of her Emperor was evi
dently a just judgment, and the fact that
the present Emperor is practically a pris
oner in order to save his life, is a natural
state of affairs. No ruler is flt to live
who permits the barbarites which have
disgraced Kussia and are still continuing
to disgrace her.
Not the least interesting feature of the Bar
ton-Soteldo tragedy is the manner in which th<
newspapers of the country are treating it.
"The Terrible Fate of a Man Who Had the
Audacity to Attack an Editor," is a very large
and a very black headline in most of the pat
ent-inside publications. When the reader has
been wrought up to the proper d-gree of ter
ror, he is informed in the postscript that the
editor did not kill Soteldo after all. — Chicago
Times.
The proper way to head it would be,
"A. Warning to Men Who Attack Editors
Not to Carry a Brother Along "With
Them."
Mayor Caktep. Harrisoh, of Chicago,
does not believe in keeping a man in
office too long. IT« believes that a change
once in a while affords an opportunity to
examine accounts and prevent many ir
regularities which mieht be covered U]
by an official continued in office for sev
eral consecutive terms. The present
police justices of that city have been in
office, in the Mayor's opinien, long
enough, and he has requested the resig
nation of Justices Walsh, Kauffman and
M. 11. M. Wallace.
Mr. Dorsey has been indicted, but he still
rea ains secretary of the national Republican
committee. A special meeting ought to be
called to fire him out. — Republican Ex
change.
Not at all. Mr. Dorsey stole the State
of Indiana in ISBO, and gave the Presi
dency to the Republican party. If Dor
sey should go out the Republican party
should go out with him. What differ
ence does it make if he is indicted? Jle
isn't convicted yet and never will be.
Guiteau's pistol settled that as well as
many other qnestions. It was the most
potent pistol shot ever fired in this cen
tury. ______________
A young woman was arrested a day or
two ago in New York City charged with
the offense of being dressed in male attire.
She had worn her disguise for fifteen
months, during which time she had been
clerk in a large and popular restaurant
and in a dry goods store. There was no
accusation that she had behaved improp
erly or that she was immodest or incom
petent. She had dressed in male costume
in order to secure better pay than she
could as a woman. By her disguise she
was enabled to earn nine dollars per week,
which was about double what she could
have hoped to secure as a woman. For
this offense she was arraigned as a cul
prit in a police court, and the papers
speak of it as 'startling" that she should
have so long concealed her sex. It is a
striking commentary upon the relative
status of men and women, that a woman
can only secure the same pay which
would be given a man for similar work,
by concealing her identity in pantaloons.
Tne moment her sex is discovered, no
matter how satifactory her services have
heretofore been, she is immediately ta
booed — and her pay greatly reduced, if
allowed to retain her situation at all. Is
it "any wonder so many young women
deliberately sell their souls to the devil?
It is about the only fair and square mar
ket which is offered them.
ST. PAUL'S WHEAT MARKET.
The organization of the Northwestern
Elevator compam T , which we announced
the other day, opens a new future for St.
Paul. The 600,000 bushel elevator to be
built by the company at the Transfer
freight yards in this city will furnish an
outlet by which grain buyers and elevator
men can escape the exactions of the Min
neapolis millers; while the numerous ele
vators, some forty in number, to be built
by the company at various points m west
ern Minnesota will widen the area
tributary to St. Paul. The Chamber of
Commerce of St. Paul and all our leading
citizens should interest themselves in this
great work. Competition in the primary
wheat markets of the State cannot fail to
increase the prosperity of the people, and
with it the wholesale trade and growth
of St. Paul. But above all, it should be
seen that the local wheat inspector of
this city is not under the influence of the
Minneapolis association. That society has
millions ©f dollars at its disposal, and
when the Minneapolis man wants to effect
anything in church or State, trade or
politics, his first instinct is to take out his
pocket-book. There is a general belief
that the King have the wheat inspectors
under their thumb. We make no charges;
but should the wheat inspector of St. Paul
work into their hands it will be in vain to
build elevators and seek to make thft "a
great wheat market; our inspector by his
gradings can turn the flood back and
drive it to the Minneapolis mills. A
single knave can thus thwart the capital
and enterprise of thousands, and line his
own pockets while a whole city suffers.
If grain buyers throughout the State can
feel that they can get in St. Paul as good
grades and as high prices as their wheat
deserves, St. Paul will soon take rank as
one of the great wheat markets of the
country. This great result is worth
working for.
The Globe proposes to treat this new
enterprise as designed to be what it pur
ports on its face, a fair organization, and
trusts this confidence will not be mis
placed. We admit, however, having
grave fears that it may ultimately prove
a tender to the Minneapolis ring,
but it is entitled to a generous
support and encouragement to give
it sufficient strength and vitality to pre
vent any such untoward result. The
only way for the farmers and business
men to relieve themselves from their
thraldom is by encouraging a counter
organization, as this now appears to be.
I. a >t Night'd Concert.
The concert of the German society and
Seibert's orchestra at the Athenaeum last eve
ning was an unusually pleasant one. The
selections, except the one from Mercadante,
were all of a little lighter character than
usual, and produced a very pleasing effect,
indeed. The most prominent and noticeable
of the numbers was the difficult and ever
fresh and beautiful "William Tell" overture.
Its rendition last night gave all the more
eatisfaction from the fact that the oboe part
was given on that instrument instead of on
the clarionet. The effect was marked and at
the conclusion the applause was so contin
uous that that portion of the overture in
cluding the oboe solo, and the flute and oboe
duet, was repeated. Mr. Charles Hubbard
who played the oboe 'after only a few weeks
handling the instrua ent, received the personal
congratulations of his friends after the per
formance and he deserved them.
Garfleld National Monumental Fund.
Coldwater, Mich., Feb. 15, ISB2.
Gen. R. W. Johnson and Wm. Bickel, Esq.,
St. Paul, Minn:
•Dear Sirs — You are hereby authorized to act
for me in the interest of the committee of the
G.irfieid National Monumental Fund, to solicit
subscriptions therefor in your vicinity. I
trust you will do what you can to advance the
interest of the patriotic enterprise, and enable
all your people to contribute thereto, and re
mit to me as soon as possible the money so
contributed with the name and residence of
each subscribed. J. S. Pakkhurst,
Com., Dept. N0. 6.
In compliance with the foregoing request,
we call upon our patriotic citizens to send to
either of us such contributions as they may
desire to mak?. The monument is to be erected
at the national capital, and its cost will
depend upon the generous, patriotic offerings
of our people. It is designed to be a national
testimonial, worthy of him who was not only
eminent for his achievements in war, but illus
trious as a statesman of the republic.
No lengthy appeal on our part is necessary.
The patriotism of our people will at once dic
tate a prompt response to this motice. Let all
classes,— the 6chool children as well as the
middle aged and old-time veterans,— contribute
something, and thus enable the committee to
erect a monument which will be a credit
to the nation, and which will stand
for ail ages a loving tribute to the memory of
oi*e who, like the father of his country, "was
good because he was great, and great because
he was good."

Hunting Land With a Shot Gun.
[Grand Forks, (D. T.) Herald.]
Yesterday morning at S o'clock plats of the
townships near Grafton were opened for file
ing. As early as 3 o'clock a. m., filers began
to gather and completely filled the hall and
corridors leading to the land office. As the
time drew near for opening excitement in
creased, and a general row became imminent.
This was averted by the timely arrival of
Chief Ryan and Officer Hennessey, who cleared
the halls. Officer Hennessey was stationed at
the lower door and allowed men in squads of
six to go up and do their filing. Order was
thus preserved atd everything passed off
smoothly. The excitement extended through
out the whole town which was filled with men
after land.
Repudiation in the Northwest,
[N. Y. Sun.]
Some citizen of Dakota has presented
a very serious objection against the ad
mission of that territory as a state. Da
kota has attempted, unsuccessfully, to
repudiate outright $200,000 of her bonds
issued to help build a railroad, and,
though the United States Supreme Court
has decided against her, she has of late
refused to pay the interest.
If Dakota can once become a state,
with the precedent now established by
Mahone and the Republican party, she
will probably find little difficulty in carry
ing out her scheme of repudiation.
This possibility is foreseen by those
prudent citizens who resist her admission
into the Union, and they pray that the
sovereign powers of a state may be re
fused.
There is no valid reason for making
this territory into a state anyway; but if
she must come in, let it be with clean
hands. .

We take pleasure in stating that the Great
German Remedy, St. Jacobs Oil, is being used
by many ring artists now engaged with P. T.
Barnum's Greatest Show on Earth, united
with the Great London Circus, Sanger's Royal
Allied Shows. From its happy effect upon
those who have occasion to employ it, we
have no hesitation in pronouncing St. Jacobs
Oil the best liniment which has ever been
brought to our notice. It is wonderfully
efficacious in subduing pain.

SJENSJ HLE SUGGESTIONS.
St. Paul Must Stand bg the Producers if
She Hopes to Thrive.
To the Editor of the Globe:
St. Paul, Feb. 18. — Your recent spirited
articles on the subject of Farmers' versus the
Millers' association has suggested a few ideas
to me respecting the present and future of St.
Paul. The hitherto rapid growth of St. Paul
is an acknowledged fact, and it is a matter of
the deepest interest to her citizens that this
expansion should continue without abate
ment. So it will no doubt; but as in the case
of individuals, lasting and solid success is sel
dom achieved without effort and forethought,
so it is largely true of cities and communities
that they cannot to continue to progress
without the exercise of the same foresight and
well directed effort. It is not prudent for a
commercial man to leave the extension of his
business to the vagaries of chance, but his in
ventive abilities must be brought to bear on
the question how to extend his trade profita
bly, and the same is true of the affairs of a
city. Nothing must be left to chance. The vast
extent of territory to the north and west of
St. Paul is in ifs infancy amd as the supple
ment and cultivatien have been almost start
ling during the past few years so will its
further progress during the next decade be
still more remarkable, and the country which
was the other day but a newly born infant,
will coon appear before our astonished gaze
in all the strength and vigor of manhood,
and with all the increased desires and require
ments of maturity.
Let us examine, then, how this develop
ment is to bear upon the future of St. Paul.
The great Northwest will be devoted exclu
sively to the production of wheat, and if Bt.
Paul desires to maintain her commercial su
premacy and a position worthy the capital of
Minnesota, she must become the center of
the wheat trade. And as the power of
the press is necessary to originate
and disseminate ideas; and as your esteemed
contemporary is now run almost entirely in
the interest of the Minneapolis clique, so is it
incumbent upon the Globe as a powerful
journal, having the interests of our city at
heart, to urge upon our .prominent and
wealthy citizens the necessity of taking a hand
in the wheat trade of the great Northwest
themselves.
At present it. Paul is the great distributing
point for Minnesota, Dakota, and the regions
north and west of them, supplying the settler*
with all their requirements; but if she is to be
truly great, and is to be a necessity to these
rapidly developing regions, she must be in a
position to take all that the settlers have to
offer in exchange. Where *he settlers and
country merchants sell their products, there
will they largely buy. And their chief product
is, and will be, wheat. In fine, St. Paul must
be buyer as well as seller. St. Paul is looking
to the development of her river traffice and
confidently hopes to become an exportiog
center. She will have to export wheat, if any
thing, and is there any organization
for the handling of wheat powerful
enough to cempete with the Millers'
Association of Minneapolis? I know of none,
but surly St. Paul, with her capital, ability
and enterprise, can give birth to such an or
ganization . Minnesota w heat i s just as salable,
an article as Minnesota flour, and can be handled
without the loss too often contingent upon
the manufactured article. The Minneapolis
millers have been driven by desperation to
practice all kinds of tricks upon the helpless
farmer — helpless for the reason that there was
bo other buyer for his staple product-be
cause for a long time they been unable to ob
tain for their flour what it cost them to make
it if they paid the farmer the market price of
his wheat; and as they are powerful enough
to do it, they saddle the farmer with their loss
by cheating him in grades and weights.
A -powerful St. Paul organization of wheat
buyers could afford to pay the farmer a fair
price for his article, because the
market price of wheat at Eastern points is
the market price of wheat here plus the
freights; and St. Paul, besides being Able to
treat the farmer fairly, would establish her
self for all time as the trading center of the
state) and would become that absolute neces
sity, as buyer and seller, which she is not
now.
Take for example the instance of Chicago.
Chicago owes her unexampled prosperity and
hnv unique position among Western cities,
not only to the fact that she is the center of
ii-tnbution to the great West, but also to
the fact that she it the leady recipient of all
productions the West has to offer in exchange.
She takes their wheat, their pork, their corn,
and their wares of whatever kind and in wkat
ever quantity. And she could not be the Chi
cago of to-day unless 6he did.
And so it must be with St. Paul. If St. Paul
is to establish her position as the center of
trade in the Northwest without fear of rivalry
she must be as ready to buy as to sell. It
must be remembered that commerce is only
an extended system of barter.
It is time "then for the capital, the talent,
and the energy of St. Paul to combine and be
stir themselves, in view of the great agricul
tural development occurring, otherwise some
powerful rival may soon establish a position
with which it may be difficult to compete.
It is not yet too late, but it is time to be sto
ring, and the importance to St. Paul of this
industry is one which she can no longer afford

MRS. SCOYILLE.
How She is Ileselged by R»porters— Her
Letter to Mrs. Garfleld — The Copy
Which Was Published Stolen From Her
Desk.
[Chicago Times]
Upon receipt of the information that Mrs.
Garfleld has received Mrs. Scoville's letter, a
reporter of the Times was dispatched to that
lady's residence to ascertain if she was aware
of the manner of its reception. The reporter
was requested in a dignified and reserved man
ner to state his business.
••Are you aware of the fact, Mrs. Scoville,
that Mrs. Garfield has received your letter V"
asked the interrogator.
•'I suppose she has. The letter was regis
tered for Cleveland on Monday, and she should
have received it before this time," was the
r- ply.
"Then you have not seen a newspaper re
port to that effect?"
•'I have not. lam getting very tired of the
newspapers. They seem willfully to misrep
resent me and my family all of the time, in
every manner possible. A paper yesterday
stated that I had written a letter to Mrs. Gar
fleld in order that she might use her influence
with President Arthur in my brother's behalf,
which is all sheer nonsense. I get no rest,
day or night, on account of the newspapers
and the reporters."
Mrs. Scoville looked, as well as 6poke, her
indignation. "You reporters,'' she continued,
"come here at all hour 6 ofihe night, and re
sort to all manner of subterfuges to interview
and annoy me, and then make your interviews
as sensational as possible. A reporter came
heie and tried to interview me when
I was so tired and worn out after
my return from Washineton that I could
scarcely sit up, and when ray daughter an
swered ths bell and told him I was indisposed,
he said he 'would write us all up good for not
letting him in.' She told him c *e would get
even with him if he did,' and when he wrote
it up he said we
SLAMMED THE rOOR IX niS FACE,
and quoted my daughter's word, but said
nothing about his remarks to her. After
wards, he came heie with what he pretended
was a telegram from Wisconsin and tried to
get in to interview me."
The reportej: assured Mrs. Scoville that he
had not come'to make any misrepresentations,
and her manner became finally mure unre
served. She invited the interviewer into the
parlor, remarking that she would willingly
answer any reasonable questions.
"Mrs. Garfield declines to answer your let
ter. She says she bears no ill will toward you
or Guiteau, but does not wish to be dragged
into notoriety needlessly. What do you think
of her declining to answer your letter?"
"There was nothing in the letter that called
for an answer, and I did not expect an an
swer."
"What was your idea in writing Mrs. Gar
field. You deny the imputation some of the
newspapers have cast upon your motive for
writing the letter?"
"I have been wanting to write Mrs. Garfield
for the very reason that 1 gave in the letter;
and, as I stated in that letter, I did write her
last July, but did not send the letter. I have
written as much as fifty sheets of paper from
which I have made drafts from time to time,
until had arranged it to suit my ideas as to
brevity and proper wording. I felt it to be ■
duty — it weighed upon my mind. I wanted to
tell her how I felt for her in her great trouble.
I wanted to show her that it was not the de
graded wretch Guiteau, but a poor, insane,
misguided boy, who killed her husband. I
don't see how my letter could be misunder
stood."
"Do you think Mrs. Oarfield would have
written you in reply to your letter if your let
ter had not been published?"
"She might have done so, although there's
a vast difference in our stations in life. She is
a president's wife, while I am Guiteau's sis
ter; but we are suffering from a madman's
freak alike. Her suffering, no doubt, is more
intense than mine, as she monrns the loss of
her husband, as only a wife can, while I
mourn the loss to the nation of a great and
good man, and thathi6 life was taken by
MY DEMENTED BROTHER."
"How do you account for the appearance of
your letter in print before Mrs. Garfield had
received it?"
"I was almost at a loss to know how that
happened until I found that one of tho drafts
I had made of the letter was missing. I used
a great deal of care in preparing the letter,
making a final third copy, which I
registered on Monday. One of the
copies I put away for safe-keeping,
while the other was left among my papers to
show some of my friends. I was very much
surprised when I found that letter had been
published, and, not being able to find the copy
I had left among ray papers, came to the con
clusion that some reporter had secured the
copy in some way unknown to me. Ever
since this terrible calamity, I have been wri
ting all over the house, whenever I bad a mo
ment to spare. My writing materials and
manuscript were in almost every room, until
I had finished the letter to Mrs. Garfield. I
changed my room then,*ftud began taking care
of my papers. About this time some of my
boarders left, and we were answering adver
tisements of parties who wanted rooms and
board. My servant had the privilege of show
ing parties the rooms I had occupied,
and several times left gentlemen who called
to look at rooras in my library where my
desk 6tood open and the papers upon it
labeled and strewn about. On one or two oc
casions, coming in and finding strange gen
tlemen there and the servant answering the
bell for some one else, l have ehided her for it.
I suppose in some way it was found out that
I had registered the letter, and some one or
two men arranged »o call, and, after one had
gone in to look at the rooms, the other would
ring, and, while his call was beiug answered
by the servant, the other rondo free with my
papers. This is the theory the rest of the
family advance as the only one
TO SOLVE THE MYSTERT.
It might have been taken several days be
fore I registered the letter to Mrs. Garfield,
as every one in the house knew I was writing
one, and it might h<ive been kept quiet until
it was certain I had 6ent the letter and then
given to the press, for if it had been pub
lished bf fore I registered the letter I should
have written Mrs. Garfield another. I don't
know now whether I aid right or wrong to
write to her, but I did what I considered my
duty. lam very tired of so much newspaper
talk about our affairs."
The reporter intimated that some one had
been given a copy of her letter to be sold to
the newspapers about the time that she regis
tered her copy.
"That may be," replied Mrs, Scoyiile. "I
understand that is the way the news is peddled
around from one newspaper office to another."
"But it is said that you were cognizant of
that fact, and were to receive part of the pro
ceeds of the sale of the letter."
"Where did you hear that story V she a6ked,
her indignation being clearly manifested, in the
excited manner of the question. "Of course,
I was not."
Mrs. Scoville was also asked if it was true
that she intendrd t:> write her brother's his
tory. She replied^hat she had not fully de
cided upon that point, but it was more than
likely she should do co.

A Helpless 7 Year Old Hoy Subjected to

O. H. Ireland, proprietor of the Fewer house, en

before the police court on Friday to get him sent to
the reform school. Tbercqusst was refused on ac
count of the tender yearj o the child, and for lack

cause the boy wos aim; up yosterday in a dark closet
all day, where ho neariy perished with the cold.
Two of the boarders heard him crying piteously and
went to the closet Mt4 let him out.
. They were taking him down stairs to a fire, whan
th? father came along and took him away, and then,
after again punishing him, tie helpless little feUow
was sent to bod dinnerloes and snppsrlecs.
The boarders claim t hit the father is enamored

The widow hae a little daughter, and they find the

No substantial change was to be noticed in
the local market yesterday. The eastern mar

urday, aad closed at noon, about two cents
lower than they did the night before. Here
everything • was dull with nothing doing.
Hogs were apparently c; little higher, accord
ing to the sales noted below. But the price
named was for a very nail lot, and cannot be
relied upon really for a quolation. Car lots :
would not have brought such figures. Bailed
hay also looked a little better, -„, but the
quotations noted below, are for a email quan
