The cable announces that Farnell will visit this country in September. ;-;•-; Two Indiana colleges have given Post master General Gresham the LLD. Ex-Gov. Bell, of New Hampshire, is writing a history of the Granite State. The Continental guards of New Orleans participated in a military parade yester day at Boston in honor of the battle of Bunker Hill. Ex-Speakeb Keiiek was mousing about Washington last week in search of spoils. The- president received him very coldly, and promised him nothing. Ex-Speakeb Randaix is a gentleman of peculiarly regular habits. He goes to bed at :» and rises at 6. The favorite beverage he sets before his quests is milk. The Springfield Republican asserts that it took the ground in 187G that Tilden and HcLidricks were elected and has always held it. This will do for a Republican paper. Ex-Senatob Conklim; does not propose to allow Mr. Blame to prepare the only political history of hi« time. He will write a political history, in the course of which Mr. Conk ling will not find it necessary to make any mention of Mr. Blame. Fob president, Chester A. Arthur of New York, for vice president, Walter Evans of Kentucky, is the very latest Re publican ticket, and the platform in Arthur's own simple words, "One Union, one Constitution, one Destiny,'' to this add the President's Flag and the great Repub lican dilemma is solved. After feur years of preparatory study for tho Catholic priesthood, the son of ex- Senator Kernan, of New York, has re nouced his purpose to take holy orders ani returned to his father's house. Young Kernan was a fellow student with Gen. Sherman's son, who has entered the Cath olic priesthood. The Woodhull sisters, whose feats o living by their wits have become so no torious, after having relieved John Gill of New York, whom the courts have just de cided is incompetent of taking care of himself and his property, of surplus bonds and a £13,000 house, are enjoying them selves with a little run among the Eu . ropean capitals and watering places. The New Hampshire legislature are in a dead lock on the re-election of United States Senator Rollins, the opposition Re publicans and Democrats bci';^ united against him. The matter is so serious that William E. Chrndler has had to leave his important naval duties and go up there to ostensibly see "a sick mother,"' but to really take a hand in for Rollins, and to see that the New Hampshire machine is well oiled. President Arthur, in his recreation of "playing push pin with the rot and rub bish of low, tricky politics," as his friend Mr. Conkling describes his occupation, has appointed Mr. Bromley, one of the editors of the New York Tribune, a government director of the Union Pacific railroad. Thus the president recogniy.es the paper aforesaid as being a mighty power in Re pnblican politics, and he desires its assist ance in his little by-play of securing to Mr. Arthur the Republican nomination in 1884. Trie Tribune now ceases to be crit ical, and does not inform the public, sev eral times a week as formerly that the executive is making mistakes, or worse. The song has changed; "The king can do no wrong 1 , long live the king." The Mass ichusetts ftate senate has ordered Walter Shanley paid £79,500 of his $130,000 back claim for the construc tion of the Hoosac tunnel. The indebted ness of the state was made by Shanley's constructing the tunnel large enough for a double track when his contract and pay only called for a single one, and carrying the building on at his own expense. In its usual shabby manner, the state has been paying up by piecemeal this public spirit ed contractor, the carrying of the financial burden incurred over many years having terribly crippled his finance and fotunes. while the state is now using the other tracks which his foresight saw would be needed, and the excavation for which at the time saved the state mill ions of dollars. Possibly by another year they will lock up Stanley's $50,000 balance, without interest. Gen. Houpt had a simi lar bitter experience of the state's tardi ness to pay its Home tunnel construction bills, and it is well known that it has made a poor man by its niggardness out of the noble-herrted man who carried forward this great work to perfect completion. •MMWMHNMMHMMMI 11 AIL TO THE ENGINEERS. St. Paul tenders a right royal greeting and cordial welcome to a grand body of men, the Scientific and Mechanical Engi neers, who come to us from all sections of the national commonwealth. In doing this is recognized the supreme fact that the brains, genius, perseverence and fertility of the men of these professions have done much to make and preserve us a Nation. To say that we are glad to see them and to entertain them with all the resources of generous hospital ity is but paying a small tribute to their ■worth, for by mere material courtesies can hardly be conveyed the sentiments of ap preciation and high esteem in which they are held. The large company is in part composed of ladies, without the brightness of whose presence some part of the visi tation would be wanting. The graces of rosy, leafy Jane deck our hill-tops and in viting valleys and we are proud indeed that these strangers are within our gates, but before they depart they will be no longer strangers, but acquaintances and friends, who will hear from us as they journey on their homeward way the tokens of our gratification at their cominy, regrets thf.t they must -,o soon depart. In another portion of this issne of the Globe apuears a recital of the trip hitli erward, the arrival of our guests, the pro gramme for the occupation of the future time of their tarry. LA\<iUA<:ES IXTIIE ITItLir SCHOOLS. The proposition now pesiding in the board of education to abolish the teaching of German in the public schools is a move ment decidedly in the right direction. This rule should not only apply to the German, but all other foreign languages, dead or alive. If any language other than tha English is taught iv the public schools it should be confined, as Mr. Officer pro poses, io the hiirh school, and even then made a purely optional or elective study. The purpose of tho common school is to give the young an English education. Thcit is the langu;i^e of the country and the only language which should be taught at the expense of the tax payers. It should not be regarded as a war upon Germans or the German language to exclude it from the public schools, but it should be simply placed upon an equality with all other foreign languages. An English speaking child should be sent to the public schools to better master his own language, and child ren other than English speaking Ly birth should be given the opportunity to learn the language of the country in which they live. The common schools are designed for the multitude, and the time for schooling of the majority of the multitude is limited. The majority of those who attend the public schools cannot afford to remain until they are twenty years old and attain a sub stantial collegiate education. They must seek employment and assume the actual duties of life, and their parents should not be taxed to pay for the schooling of the comparative few who, having been more favored of fortune, can remain in school until manhood or womanhood is reached. The public schools are for the boys and girls of America, ;md they should be made as practicable as possible. If any languages are taught in th« high school other than tho Eoglish they should not be at public expense. As an accommodation for those who have the means aud incli nation to educate their children in that manner, it would be well to have a ''De partment of Languages'" in the high school but it should be supported by tuition fees from those who enjoy its benefits, and not bo made any part of the prescribed conrse. Such a policy will be a wise solution of the question which is now agitating tho St. Paul board of education. REI'VI'.LICAN I'IUJIAIiI ES.

Rouleau, and old citizen of St. Paul, starts this morning on a trip to Burthe, Lower Canada, which point he left fifty-four years ago a you ng man in pursuit of fame and fortune. In 1842 he made his advent into St. Paul, at a time when th 9 present site of the* city was a howling wilderness, with nothing but a few scattered cabins, and a surplus of savage aboriginess held the fort against the advance of progressive civilization. Previous to coming hither he was in the employ of the American Fur company, his immediate superintendent being the father-in-Jaw of John S. Prince, the latter now of St. Paul, and was accustomed to the trials and hardships incident to a pioneer life. Upon reaching the present city he established his family in a rud e home near what is now known as the cor ner of Fifth and Pine streets, and opening a cooper shop at the foot of Jackson street toiled there year after year for nearly a quarter of a century. He has witnessed the growth of St. Paul from its infancy, has participated in the trials and triumphs of her growth and development, and now having almost reached the allotted period of man. returns to the home of his child hood to dwell for a brief season timid sur roundings of a different age and genera tion, and recall memories that have for years dwelt undisturbed in the tomb of forgettnlness. Of late years he has |resided with his son, Charles T. Rouleau, a member of the po lice department of this city, in the enjoy ment of a hale old age, and the reflections that come from the knowledge that his service in the cause of humanity is not without rewards. The best wishes of the pioneer citizens of this vicinity and his numberless friends attend him on his journey, and the hope ventured, that he may be permitted to return hither with a renewed lease of life. DL. A. Senecal, of Montreal, has given 150,000 to provide a permanent exhibition in Paris for Canadian productions, and ap pointed Drolet superintendent, paying him a n annual salary. THE ST.

General Manager Haupt, of the North ern Pacific, sta:is on a tour of inspection this morning. Samuel Treadwe!!. editor of the Devil's Lake Pioneer, was a caller at the Manitoba offices jtsterday. George Earl, private secretary of vice- Preeident Oakes, of the Northern Pacilic goes east to-morrow. Up to (> o'clock last evening the arrivals at the Hotel de Lafayette aggregate up ward of 500 pleasure seekers. The Northern Pacific track has been completed three miles west of Helena and thirteen miles east of Missoula. Land in Dakota made by the Northern Pacific amount to 30.000 acres for the first half of June, instant. The approximate gross earnings of the Mexican National railway for the first week in June instant were $i:).L'83.48. The 4:50 train on the St. Paul & Duluth road went no further than Stillwater last evening owing to a washout on the Taylors Falls branch. Emigrants to the number of 'lbo came in by the eastern trains yesterday, and de parted for points on the Manitoba and Northern Pacific roads last night. F.N. Finney, general manager of the Wisconsin Central, arrived in a special yesterday morning. He left for Minne tonka at 5 o'clock in the afternoor. I. A. Smith, general eastern agent of the Chicago, Milwaukee k, St. Paul road at New York, was among the arrivals at the Hotel de Lafayette, Lake Alinnetonka. on yes terday. S.S.

He represents that his craft will be ready for business on July 4, when it will carry an excursion party from St. Paul across the lake. The Omaha train due in this city at 2:25 yesterday afternoon was upward of three hours late. The detention was caused by a washout between Camp Douglas and El roy. which has been repaired, however, and trains o'-cr that route are now making their schedule time. Inspectors Ben Bntterworth, of < >hio,and W. A. Patten and Charles L. Perkins, both of New York, leave here Saturday morning to inspect a section of the Northern Pa cific east of Helena; also, a section of that road running twenty-five miles west of the Fiat Head reservation . The Dcs Moines passei^fr train, ever the Omaha road.due at 11:05 last night had not r.rrived at 3 o'clock this mornimg. On inquiring at the train dispatchers office at 2 o'clock it was learuea that the delay was caused by a wreck of a freight train on the Minneapolis «fc St. Louis road south of Chaska. To insure prompt transportation of freight destined east of Chicago, freight by the Kock Island road for the Lake Shore or Pittsburg, Ft. Wayne it Chicago roads should be billed to Englewood; for the Michigan Central, to Joliet if in car loads, to Chicago if in less than car lots; for the Chicago, St. Louis & Pittsburg road, to Washington Heights; for the Chi cago & Grand Trunk road, to Blue Island; for the Baltimore &. Ohio. Chicago & At lantic and Nickel Plate roads, to South Chicago if in car loads, to Chicago if in less than car lots; for the Cincinnati, In dianapolis, St. Louis it Chicago road, to Seneca. Perishable freight in any quan tity must in all cases be billed to Chicago. The Chicago Railway Passenger Agent of the od instant presents to its readers and the public a portrait of G. K. Barnes, general passenger agent of the Northern Pacific road, well known throughout the country as the youngest man now in charge of the passenger service of a truDk line in the United States, as an exceptionally able official, and an affable gentleman. The picture brings home to the multitude of friends of the subject a fair counterpart of the original.and fully confirms to strangers the truth of his reputation as one of the most genial, generous and unaffected types at" that rare creation, a true manhood. Mr. Barnes was born at Franklin, Delaware county, N. V., in 1844, and began his railroad career in 18C2 at Hancock station on the Erie road as ticket agent. In 18C5 he was ap pointed freight agent at Co.shocton station and one year later became train dispatcher at Hawley, then the terminus of the Hones dale branch of the same road. In 1868 he accepted a position in the general ticket office of the Rock Island road, where he re mained until 1872, when be came to St. Paul as the assistant passenger and ticket agent of the West Wisoonsin, and the next year was promoted to the chief lianshipjof that department. In 1876 he was ap pointed general traveling passenger agent of the Northwestern road in which service he remained until February, 1881, when he was appointed general passenger and tick et agent of the Northern Pacific, which po sition he still holds. He is recognized as one of the mostjthoroughly practical rail way men in the country, a man whose re liability is known from ocean to ocean, and whose urbanity and congenial char 0 " teristics have made him a favorite in busi ness and social circles wherever he has pitched his tent. His promotion is the reward of undeniable merit, and in all his relations he has more than demonstrated that promotion unlike kisses does not come by favor. The railroad editor of the Globe tenders his hearty congratulations to the recipient of the compliment herein refer red to, and taking him by the hand in dulges a hope that he "may live long and prosper.'' The Hirer. The River opposite St. Pau 1 , like the lard boom in Chicago, has lost its grip, and is steadily declining with seven feet seven in ches in the channel. The dashing Sidney, of the Diamond Jo line, left for St. Louis at 11 o'clock Sunday night with a fair freight trip and thirty passengers. Ihe belie of the line, the Mary Morton, will bo in on time to return to St. Louis with dispatch. The Grand Pacific, of the Saints line, will arrive this morning to leave at G o'clock this evening for St. Louis. Her speed is of the race horse type and her ac commodations unsurpassed. The Centen nial will be here to-morrow and the War Eagle on Friday. The new steamer of the Saints line, the St. Paul City, will make a trial trip to morrow. On Monday next she will slip her cables at St. Louis and start for St. Paul with a cabin full of tho first families residing in the Bridge City, and under sQch favorable auspices inaugurate her sea son's work on the St.' Paul and St. Louis route. The <;r>, n ii Trunk's Action. Chicago, June 18. — General Manager Calloway, of the Grand Trunk road, has returned from Montreal. He says his road, in order to meet the action of the Michigan Central, in withdrawing through trains from the Great Western, will, after Monday ne:ct, add two daily fast trains east, one leaving at 330 ana the other at !) p. m, with through Pullman cars to New YDrk via. Niagara Falls and Erie road, and to Boston via. the Montreal £z Vermont Central. The time between Chicago and Montreal will be shortened nine hour?. Close connection is to be made with the New York Central at Niagara Falls, giving travelers to New York the choice of routes and competition with the Michigan Cen tral at this end will *c bt^un by putting on Pullman cars from Chicago to Detroit. 31-tch Mow i, I m-fil !••■<}. Kxokck, la.. June 18. — An argument commenced to-day before Hon. Samuel Miller of the United States supreme court and Hon. H. C. Caldwell judge of the United States district court for the for the eastern district of Arkansas involving the liability of the Little Rock ifc Fort Smith and other railroads in Arkansas for bonds issued to them by the state to aid in their construction which bonus have been de clared by the supreme court of Arkansas to be invalid and which amount to $5,350, --000. Johnß. Dospassos of New York and ex-Chief Justice MeClure of Arkansas rep resent the bond holders, and Hon. John F. Dillon of New York and C. W. Huntington of Boston the railroad companies. A Purchase by the Canadian Pacific, St. Albans, Yt., June — It is reportei that the Southeastern railway of Canadt has been purchased by the Canadian Pa cific railway, and will go into the hands o the new company July 1. Terms un known. Tne .Minstrels To-night . Barlow. Wilson e'e Co.'s minstrels have no superior in the world, and when the doors of the Opera house open to-nigl:t there will no doubt be a grand rash for seats. An exchange speaks thus of the company: Minstrelsy has such a charm for the peo ple of this ancient borough that the rain of yesterday afternoon, and the elevation of the storm signal last night, were not sufficient to deter them from ventur ing into the Academy of Music. Barlow, Wilson ifc Co. may well felicitate them selves upon their reeptiou. The Acade my was filled with a multitude of appre ciative people, and they testified by nn mistakable methods the pleasure afforded them by the popular airs of a superb or chestra, castanet and tambourine effects, the melodies of the Clipper Quartette, im personations of negro character, dancing, and a long catalogue of new and refresh ing specialties. The audience was large, refined and discriminati'ig, and this min strel combination »cv its unstinted ap plause. They can .safely repeat their call in the assurance of a warm greeting from the patrons of music and mirth. St. Paul Exhibition of Pictures. This exhibition has now beer: open since last Saturday, and is a perfect success as far as the collections are concerned. The great picture of Casanova is itself an exhi bition. This picture attracted the admira tion and attention of thousands of visitors at the Paris salon of this year. It was no extraordinary thing for the people to wait for an hour and more awaiting their turn to see this picture. It is an exquisite gem of art, and one of the best modern pic tures in the world. The suojeci is a Fran ciscan mor.k after a good dinner, playing at blind man's buif, with three ladies in some nobleman's family, the old French general standing looking on and enjoying the fun, fun at °any price as the monk has just upset atablo from which some ele gant caskets etc. are falling. One of the"ar ticles falling is a flower vase, and the water being spilled is exquisitely portrayed. This picture was not exhibited in New York, but was sent direct to its present owner from the Paris salon. Many ladies and gentlemen visited the gallery on Saturday and Monday and were delighted and astonished at the collec tion, which is certainly exceedingly fine. The gallery is also opened in the evening and brilliantly illuminated, and makes a very imposing scene. Such an undertak ing should meet the most generous support So We Go. The Globe saw in Zimmerman's gallery, West Third street, on Monday, two por traits of great excellence ©f one of St. Paul's best known citizens, Major T. M. Newson. This gentleman came to St. Paul in 1854, and became the editor of the St. Paul daily Times, afterward merged into the Press, and has since almost con tinually occupied an editorial position, giving him title to being the oldest editor in the state. In 18G1 he entered the army as commissary and quartermaster, serving nearly four years. He has lectured, written, explored, assayed, leading a busy, useful life. Of the two portraits, one is of the soldier of 1861, twenty-two years ago. Then the Major's hair was like the ravens, and the brilliant eyes twinkled with bubbling merriment. The portrait of 1883, finished yesterday, exhibits the silver fresco of time, the im press of the crow-foot, gently creeking o'er, but gives ns still the hale, old man, fresh and elastic, the genial companion, with mind as bright and heart as free in the days when we were yonng. Years may come and years may go, but our Major cannot grown really old, even in a picture. The years adorn him, as he himself adorns the friendship grouped about him. WELCOME. ARRIVAL Of TUB TRAIN liKARIXG THE NATION'S CIVIL XX fiIXEEIiS. A Goodly Company of Ladies and Gentle men—How They Blade tbe Trip from Chi cago to St. Paul— A Fast Train— Their Re ception by the Leading Citizens of the Dual Cities— The Personnel of the Gath t-riujr, At 9:43 o'clock last evening, the special train of the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul railway, bringing the members of the American Society ef Civil Engineers to the annual meeting of the society in St. Paul and Minneapolis, came to a stop in the St. Paul union depot. The Globe has already given a general history of the society, as' also the general programme of this meeting, and therefore needs not repeat in detail. The announcement simply means that the national convention of the master scientific and mechanical minds of the country; the men who have run the lines of our railroads — the pioneers of Western civilization ; the men who have made the mighty Mississippi and other water courses contribute their latent powers to man's advantage; who conceived and executed the great Brooklyn bridge, the engineering triumph of the century, and numberless other achievements which will j hand their names down to future genera- j tions in glowing encomium, did, following the example set them by other distin guished national associations, at their last annual meeting, select the twin cities of the northwest— the hub of the American continent, and the entrepot and distributing point to one of the grandest sections of the continent, in scenery, healthful climate and diversity and pro ductiveness of soil. RECEIVING THi: UUKSTS. _That the society might have a royal re ception for the honor of its selection, the members of the profession of the two cities, the railroads centering here, and the public generally, have co-operated with their usual energy and liberality. A feature of the entertainment offered the society was a special train by the Chicago, Milwaukeee <i St. Paul Railway company from Chicago to St. Paul, to leave at 7:30 yes terday morning and to reach St. Paul at 8:. r is in the evening, a run of 40!) miles, or about thirty-three miles an hour includ ing necessary stops. To meet this special train members of the St. Paul and Minne apolis general committee, with a few mem bers of the profession, left St. Paul at ll':4f> in the business car of Superintendent Prior of the Chicago, Milwaukee «£. St. Paul road, attached to the regular eastern train. The reception committee consisted of Gen. J. W. Bishop, D. C. Shepard and Howard Elmore, of the St. Paul committee: C. F. Hatch. G. A. Brackett, A. C. Rand and Robert Hale, of the Minneapolis com mittee: Chief Engineer Patti, of the Min nesota division and J. M. Lowrie, master mechanic of the road: Capt. Gear and C. W. Johnson, of the Omaha road: Assistant Superintendent Case to do the honors in the necessary absence of Superintendent Prior and the Globk reporter. The run to W inona, the meeting point with the spec ial was made without special incident, un less as an added item to the management of the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul ac count, it might be added that Superinten dent Case did the honors most hospitably, in which is included a dinner with all the delicacies of the season. FAST TIME. On arriving at Winona it was learned the special was ">."> minutes behind time, having lost ten minutes in the run to Mil waukee, another ten minutes at the Kil bourn City bridge over the Wisconsin river, designed and executed by Charles Shaler Smith, manager of the St Louis Bridge company, and who has built most of the bridges of the Milwaukee road, one of the visiting engineers, and by an unfortunate detention by open spans at the Black and Mississippi river crossings at La Crosse. At La Crosse, the special was taken in charge by Supt. Slay ton, of the river division of th 6 road, Conductor Trusonne. with Engineer Chas. Jones holding the the valves of engine No. 1*24. The special consisted of seven coaches, a sleeper, the private car of Gen. Bernard, general manager of the Kan sas City, St, Joseph & Council Bluffs railroad and a baggage car. It struck Minnesota soil at r>:4."> p. m., and made the run to St. Paul. 12S miles, in three hours and fifty-eight minutes, includ ing stops at Le Moile. Winona, Minnesota City, Lake City, Red Wing and Hastings, making the actual running time on the river division forty-two miles an hour, and making up twelve minutes of the time lost on the other divisions, and reaching St. Paul at l>:40 p. m. PERSONAL AND GENEEAL. As the special stopped at Winona to take on board the St. Paul and Minneapolis delegations they were received by Don. J. Whittemore, the chief engineer of the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul road — the man whose brain has outlined the great and comprehensive system of the road— and the one to whom more than any other man is due the credit of the present convention being held in St. Paul, and by him escorted to the rear car and introduced to Capt. John Bogart, secretary and librarian of the as sociation. Unfortunately for Capt. Bogart both the president, Charles Paine, and the vice presidents. Wm. H. Paine and Henry Flad, were prevented from attending this meeting by pressing engagements, so that all the minor details of the trip and the general outlook ahead, outside of the local committees, devolved upon him. The train, as will be seen below, contained two hundred and eighty persons, the large majority of whom were entire stran gers, except by public report, until they met on their departure from Chicago, To unite this homogeneous mass into one family, and make everything move smoothly, was a herculean task. Capt. Bogart ha 3 been doing it annually ever since 1878, five years, and though only forty eight years of age, his head is silver white under the pressure. Fortunately on the trip from Chicago to St. Paul, he had a most able assistant, who relieved him of all care of the culinary department, Major O. E. Michaelis, a few years since ordnance officer of the department of Da kota, with headquarters in St. Paul. Major Michaelis had to solve the problem of how to famish them meals during the trip to 280 people in a dining car seating but forty, without having the stomachs of the guests clash. But he did it, his system of so many minutes to each relief, and his stentorian voice calling the different reliefs to refreshments, working to a charm. Among the 200 members of the associa tion, including the ninety ladies who ac company them, are many men who are known far and wide for their achievements in their profession. Prominent among them may be mentioned Mr. Collingwood and Mr. McNulty, assistant engineers under E. W. Roebling, the master mind of that most wonderful engineering triumph of the century, the bridge which spans the East river and cocnects New York and Brook !yn. Owing to impaired health Mr. Roeb ling vras not able to make the long jour ney necessary to be present at this meet ing, but he is ably represented by his charming wife, a lady by the way who has a special claim upon the good will of the people of St. Paul, from the fact that she is a sister of the late Gouverneur X.Warren, so well known and so highly respected in St. Paul for his gallant services in the late war; for his zeal and practical work in the improvement of navigation on the upper Mississippi river, and for his worth as a man and citizen. Among the other distinguished person ages in the delegation, with whom the St. Paul and Minneapolis committee had the pleasure of formiug an acquaintance, were the follow ing: Wm. Sawyer Smith; Gen.
