In the center of it is represented an exceed

The other roads are also doing a good

Chicago, Nov, 17. —There is no .probabil
ity thai the trouble between the western
roads regarding the issue of nen transfer
able 1,000-mile tickets to country editors
will soon be adjusted. The Rook Island
officials say that they have been issuing
this kind of tickets to country editors in
lieu ef advertising, for many years, and
they have, as yet, found no reason why
it should adopt a different system. These
tickets, they say are issued for a consider
ation, and the parties accepting them can
not always use them themselves, and there
fore it is but just that members of their fam
ilies should be allowed to use them. It is
time, they say,that some of the tickets find
their way into the hands of scalpers, and
are sokl to outsiders. Yet, there are but
few who violate the confidence reposed in
them, and dispose of their tickets to scalp
ers. It would not be fair, the Rock Island
people say, to punish innocent parties, by
making the tickets non-transferable, be
cause a few unprincipled parties sell them
to scalpers. The Rock Island people are
firm in their determination not to change
their system of issuing 1,000-mile tickets.
They say all the roads have to do which
are complaining that they are damaged
on account of the Rock Island issuing such
tickets, is to adopt the same system as is
in vogue on the Rock Island.

A Wedding IThiclt Did Not Come Off—The
Two souls with but a single thought, but
in this case the hearts did not beat as one.
>On the contrary, one of the hearts at least,
ssemed to have a pretty lively beat of its
own, and this accoants for the absence of
a recent bride at the ceremony and wed
ding feast. It happened briefly as follows:
John Shafer is a tonsorial artist of the
colored persuasion, a very genteel looking
fellow, and withal a man devoted to his
business and well liked for his agreeable
qualities. In this city there resides, or did
reside, a captivating damsel with jet black
eyes, pearly teeth, and a complexion al
most white, her name being Eva Crockett.
The latter resided with a married sister on
Twelfth street, named Mrs. Brown, and be
ing an old friend of the family, Mr. Shafer
used to pay them frequent visits. On these
occasions he came in contact with the be
witching Eva, and it was the most natural
thing in the world for him to become smitten
The girl, however, while always receiv
ing his advances cordially, did not seem to
consider him serious when he talked of
matrimony, and so far as any idea of mar
riage went was heart whole. Mot so with
Shafer. He pressed his suit, and had a
powerful ally in Mrs. Brown, who thought
she would like him as a bother in law, and
used all of a woman's wit to consummate
Finally the suitor pressed his cause with
more than wnnted ardor and after some
delay and hesitancy and repeated solicita
tions upon the part of her sister, the
fair Eva consented to the marriage. The
joyful John made ready for the marriage
day which was fixed for last Wednesday.
At the affixed hour the preacher put in an
appearance and the wedding guests begun
Meantime the bride retired to her apart
ment to arrange herself in the marriage
robes. The hour for the ceremony came
and yet the bride did not - appear, but as
ladies on these occasions are granted some
latitude, it was proper that the guests pa
tiently await her coming. They waited
long and patiently and might have been
waiting yet, so far as the bride was con
The sequel showed that the bride was'nt
exactly on the marry. After a long siege
the sister of the bride went to her room
to hasten matters, when it was found that
she was not there, and upon searching the
house it was discovered that she had flown
and taken her baggage with her. Up to yes
terday her whereabouts were not known.
This is why, in < hat house, there was no
ceremony, no feast and no wedding,
This splendid new building on the cor
ner of Seventh and Exchange streets,

The ceremonies of dedication will consist
of appropriate remarks by different par
ties, followed by a grand ball. The open

Boenisch, president of the State Turner
association. He will be followed by Mr.
Arthur Koenig, who will deliver the festi

A FALSEIIOOI» IS AILED,
Reckless Account of a Collision Which
3fe*er Took Place.
Accidents by rail ate frequent enough
and harrowing in the details of merciless
slaughter, but when a morbid craving for
sensation goes so fnr ahead of the returns
as to fabricate a horrible disaster out of
whole cloth, it is carrying the thing too far.
In yesterday's issue of the Eau Claire
Leader under startling head lines is an ac
count of an alleged collision on the Chica
go it Northwestern railroad a few miles
below Elroy, the statement being that the
passenger train which left Eau Claire at
12:37 a. m. Thursday morning had collid
ed with the Chicago express, the account
being, as the writer puts it, "authentically
corroborated." In letting his imagination
loose the sanguinary writer put the killed
at twenty-eight, with thirty wounded.
Now, then, without giving undue notice
to such a malicious canard, which created
consternation among hundreds of people,
it is only necessary* to state that no colli
sion took place, no person was killed, and
no one was injured.
In order to learn how such a report
could have been givea credence a Globk
reporter went in search of information last
night and had the fortune to run across
W. L. Mead, a passenger conductor of the
road who arrived last evening and who had
charge of the 12:45 train which left St.
Paul last Thursday.
Mr. Mead stated that he had seen a copy
of the Leader containing the infamously
false statement and with much indigna
tion he stated that no accident had taken
place. When asked how such a report
could be circulated he said that the train
due here at 12:45 on Thursday
was a few hours late, having ran
into a side track by the
misplacement of a switch. When asked
further if any person had been injured he
replied that not a soul had received a
scratch, and that none of the coaches had
been damaged, and winding up with the
statement that the horrible collision had
existed only in the imagination of the
writer who got the story up.
He Was Not Hurt.
The man supposed to have been se
riously, and perhaps fatally injured by the
street cars on the corner of Jackson and
Fourth streets, Thursday night, was not
hurt at all. The police were preparing to
take him to the city hospital, when Mr.
Alexander, the superintendent of the road,
took him to St. Luke's hospital. It was
reported that the man's arm and leg were
broken, and that he was otherwise badly
injured. The truth of the matter is, he
was very drunk, and was knocked down by
the car and rolled around on the ground.
He was kept at the hospital all night, and
yesterday morning got up and walked
away without saying a word, as sound as
ever a fellow was in the world. He gave
his name at the hospital as William Eakes.
This is probably a fictitious name, but it
was the best he had for the occasion.
$lOO—Workingmen's Day To-Day.
The Importers' Tea company, during their
stay in St. Paul, have been conspicuous for
their fair and impartial treatment to all parties,
mot only in the handling of their goods, but in
the free distribution of presents. In accordance

will be kept open until 10 o'clock Saturday (to
day) evening, giving all a chance to buy after
work and supper are over. The present* dis
bursed will be made up with regard to their
wishes, and will be better, if possible, than ever
before. Particular attention should be given to

A MISERABLE MAN.
He felt poorly, and looked a« badly as he
felt. He was ailing all ever, from the
crown of his aching head to tke sole 3 of
his weary feet. He htcA a pair of lack
lustre eyes which told of sleepless nights
and cheerless days. Instead of holding
himself erect, and walking firm step
like a soldier, he stooped w^th his shoulders
and held his spine in a, curve as if it was
a part of an old barrel-hoop. He said that
some of his friends told him he had
heart-disease. So he went to three or four
doctors who made heart-disease their
specialty. These doctors looked solemn,
pocketed the fees he gave them, punched
his ribs, pounded him. ou the back, pat
their ears alongside of his heart to hear if
it was beating-,—and then, one after aaotti
er, reported that he had no heart-disease.
So he had to try some other disease, and
in hopes of finding that he had something
that the doctors could cure, he listened to
some of his neighbors who told him they
guessed he had consumption. There are a
great many doctors who cure nothing else
buc consumption, and don't know how to
cere that. But they make a "specialty" of
it. all the same, and charge high fees ac
cordingly. So when he went to several of
these doctors one after another, they sound
ed his lungs with stethoscopes and other
instruments with long names. They looked
wise at him as they took his money, but
yet they said that although he was quite a
sick man.they thought his lungs were sound
enough, and lie need not worry about them.
Then he got an idea that his liver was
out of order. This was an idea which he
found very easy to cultivate. He found
that many of his friends had the same
symptoms that he had. He bought a liver
pad and a lot of liver pills, and might as
well haTe swallowed the pad and strapped
the pills around his waist, for all the good
that either of them did him.
So he became more wretched than he
was, and had the miserables worse and
worse. If anybody asked him how he was,
he said -'worse, I thank you." His family
said be was enjoying poor health. Poor
fellow! His health was so poor that he
couldn't enjoy it at all."
"The Misebables" is not one of the reg
ular diseases on the list prescribed for by
physicians. It is a state of affairs result
ing from a weakened and distressed state
of the stomach. The more careless a man
is of his stomach,the worse he will have it.
With some people it ends in wretchedness
and death. But it need not, if they take it
in time. "The Miserables" can be cured.
"What shall Ido to get rid of the mis
erables?" is the question asked to-day b/
ten thousand weary, worried and suffering
men in this city.
"Do?" Why, do just what the poor fel
low at last did of whom we have been talk
ing. He found out that the bother pro
ceeded from an over-worked and broken
down stomach. He was told that Brown's
Iron Bitters would do him good. He hard
ly believed it, yet he thought they could,
at the worst, do him no greater harm than
some of the treatment he had been through.
So he tried Brown's Iron Bittern. This med
icine began at once to make a new man of
him. It was not the work of a day, for he
was much run down. Soon his blood was
enriched, his muscles strengthened, his
nerves had new life, his eyes recovered the
natural sparkle they had in his younger
days. No longer has he had ''The Miser
ables." He is well, and when anybody asks
him what made him such a different man
from what he was, he gives a cheery smile,
such as he never could when he had "The
Miserables," and says "Brown's Iron Bit

The jury in the case of the Street Rail
way & Transfer company, respondents, vs.
Essias Rheiner, appellant, rendered a ver
dict in favor of Mr. Rheiner for §15,500,
The history of the case is familiar to most
people in this city, but a short review of it
may prove interesting to some of the
readers of the Globe. The first award by
the commissioners was $7,500. Mr.
Rheiner was dissatisfied with the amount
and carried the matter to the district
court. The case came up for trial last fall
at the November term. The case was ably
managed on both sides and the jury gave
Mr. Rheiner a verdict for $23,500.
The company applied to Judge Crosby to
set the verdict aside and to grant a new trial
on the ground that the amount was exces
sive. The judge decided that if Mrs.
Eheiner would file within sixty days his
acceptance of $15,500 the motion for a
new trial would be denied. These terms
were not accepted, and the case was taken
to the supreme court, which sustained
Judge Crosby's decision. Hence the pres
ent trial with the result as above given.

A MAN WORTH MIIXIONS.
Death of Daniel Murphy, Who Had
Enough Hold to Fill His Qrtire.
Daniel Murphy, the well-known cattle
ring and one of the largest land owners
on the Pacific coast, died at Elkolast Sun
day morning, of inflammation of the
bowels, after an illness of but a few days.
Daniel Murphy was born in Nova Scotia
in 1825, and at the age of fifteen settled in
Missouri with his father's family. At
the age of nineteen he crossed -the plains
and settled at San Jose, Cal., in 1844. Af
ter the discovery of gold he mined for a
time, then turned his attention to stock
raising, remaining in the cattle business
In January, 1851, Mr. Murphy was mar
ried to Miss Mary Fisher, daughter of
Capt. Fisher—one of the early settlers of
California—by whom he had six children,
three of whom died in their infancy. Of
the three remaining children, the eldest, a
daughter, since deceased, was married to
C. E. Chapman of San Jose, and two chil
dred, the result of this union, are living.
The two surviving children of Mr. Mur
phy are Miss Diana and Daniel Mur
He has amassed a very large fortune in
lands in California, New Mexico and Ari
zona, and he probably owned more land
and a greater number of cattle in Nevada
than any other man in the state. His es
tate is variously estimated at from $2,000,
-000 to $4,000,000. Although owning a pa
latial residence in San Jose, California, he
preferred to spend the most of his timo at
Halleck station, on the Central Pacific
railroad, in Elko county, which place was
his business headquarters.
POPE LKO'S OKKAT WOKK.
The Iteconciliittiiiii of the Oriental and
Leo XIII. is a practical pope. He over
comes the greatest difficulties. One of the
hardes papal problems has been the recon
ciliation of the Latin and the Oriental
churches. The Oriental church rites are so
national that they have invariably refused
to discard them. The priests have repre
sented Rome as an enemy to these
rites and to the peo>ple who cling to
them. It was a knotty question. No
pope has understood it as quick as Leo
XIII., and no one was more ready to do
justice. The Oriental liturgy really rests
on the holy fathers v, ho spread the faith
and the gospel in tho East. Hence Leo
XIII. last year sanctioned Ihe adoraton of
St. Cyrilius and Methodius by the Orien
tal chuches, and engrafted it on the Latin
church. This glorification of these saints
pacified the communions separated from
Kome. It gave the lie to the enemies of
the Latin church, who alleged that Rome
wanted to tyrannize the consciences of the
Oriental communions, destroy their lawful
traditions, and abolish their anckut rites.
The establishment of several colleges in
Mesopotamia and Syria for the education
cf Oriental priests is another good step
taken by the pope toward the reconcilia-'
tion of the two churches. But the master
step is the re-establishment of the Greek
in those Occidental churches where such
rite has fallen into disuse. Such was the
case with the celebrated abbey of Grot
taferrata, near Rome. This abbey was
founded by St. Niins. He established the
Greek rite just as it is observed by the Ba
silian monks of lower Calabria. Right
here I may say that there are several com
munities in Italy and Sicily who worship
in Greek, using the Greek rite, and who
are united with Rome.
The monastery at Grottaferrata gradu
ally fell into the hands of Italian monks,
and became surrounded by Italian wor
shipers. The Oriental liturgy suffered
great alteration. Greek ornaments gave
place to Latin ornaments, and many of the
prayers were read in Latin. The edifice
itself underwent many changes and was re
constructed in the worst modern style.
His holiness has now ordered the restora
tion of the old basilica to its former style
of architecture, the re-establishment of the
iconostasium, the erection of a new altar
in the sanctuary, and the complete readop
tion of the Oriental rite for public worship.
The first solemn celebration was lately
held in the basilica in the presence of six
cardinals, with the assistance of all the
pupils of the Greek college at Rome, and
of those favoring the Greek rite and study
in the J propaganda. The service was ren
dered all the more impressive because the
celebrant and assistants were mostly
Italians and members of the Latin charch.
The epistle and gospel were sung in Greek
and Latin, too, according to the privileges
of the old abbey.
The new policy of his holiness is creat
ing a ferment in the Greek church. The
Oriental people are pleased. The pope's
action wul open the eyes of many who
have been led to regard Rome as the
enemy of their traditions and of their
beautiful and majestic rights.
A Tragic Incident in Staffn Inland.
LNew York Tribune.!
One of the traveling "Uncle Tom's
Cabin" companies possesses among the
properties a real live bloodhound, which
has been trained to chase the fugitive slave,
with an appearance of great ferocity. A
few nights ago the play was given in Staten
Island. Just as the immense beast was
about to spring toward the fleeing slave,
he caught sight of a bulldog behind the
scenes, belonging to Chief Engineer Henry
Shafer, of the fire department. The bull
dog instantly assumed the offensive, and
leaping upon the stage with mad yelps,
he seized the bloodhound's ear, while the
slave girl made haste to gain a
place of safety, and the audience
moved about uneasily, In a moment all
was confusion. Over and over the animals
rolled, quickly surrounded by a ring of
local politicians, more anxious to see "fair
play" than to part the beasts. Suddenly
the hound's ear gave way, and the bulldog
was at a disadvantage. Two savage
crunches were heard, and the smaller ani
mal almost disappeared within the jaws of
its huge antagonist. The look of deep
concern which overspread the latter's
countenance, however, and a smothered
series of yelps, indicated that hostilities
had not yet ceased, and in a few moments
the dramatic company had lost one of its
most important members. The parties in
terested will bring counter suits for dam
ages, and great amusement is promised
over the attempt to determine the respon
sibility for the lost dogs.
