Grand Forks News: The surveyors of
this line have at last reached Red Lake
falls, after having been on the proposed
route for five weeks. The new line is a
more feasible one than at first anticipated,
as the following from the Red Lake Mes
senger will show: "After crossing the Crow
Wing river near the Brainerd end they
have met no difficulty whatever, going
through a beautifuly rich country, and
exceedingly favorable for road building,
the curves being all easy and grades not
exceeding at any point forty-five feet per
mile, the total length from Brainerd to
Red Lake falls being 135 miles. The route
surveyed will in all probability be adopted
as the permanent line, and it is probable
that as soon as can be after the directors
act on the chief engineer's report, active
operations will begin. The line is located
as far as the crossing of the Red Lake
river, and the preliminary survey from that
point to Grand Forks will probably be de
layed until active operations on the main
line are well under way.

No County's Land .
The county of Polk was originally laid
out with Pembina coanty to the north of
it with a bordering line running from
Turtle river easterly. In 1878 Pembina
county was changed to Kitteon, which was
described to contain the north part of old
Pembina, while the south part of old Pem
bina county was changed into Marshall
county. But the south line of Marshall
county running between townships 154
and 155, waßa mile and a half north of
the north line of Polk county running
from Turtle river east. This left a strip
of land of township 154 a mile and a half
wide and from- eixty three to sixty-four
miles long, which since old Pembina was
absorbed in^the two counties above stated
has been in no county whatever.^
A bill was passed by the last "ession of
the legislature, the effect of which was tfc e
permission to include this "no county's
allegiance" within the boundaries of Mar
ghall county, if the citizens should vote to
accept the same at a special election.
This special election was held a short
time sinse and the people of Marshall coun
ty voted 357 to Ito annex the township.
A certified abstract of this vote was re
ceived by Gov. Hubbard yesterday, asking
that a proclamation be made that the
boundary line be changed .
On reference to the state constitution by
Governor Hubbard and Secretary Denni
son it was found that it requires that in
order to change a boundary line of a coun
ty its voters must consider the question at
a general election. This, therefore, leaves
township 154 out in the cold until next
November, and it is suggested ,that it will
be very convenient duelling and prize
fighting ground up to the time the next
snow Hies.

Camp Meeting in Progress— A Sample of
the Work j.iml I'reacliinjr of the Great
Evangelist Hammond.
The camp meeting yesterday was the
greatest in the progress of the meeting.
The song service began at 10 a.m. Mr.
Hammond handles a song service with
wonderful sagacity. At 10:30 the regular
service commenced. The sermon was
characteristic, fuli of acting out illustra
tions, intensly religious. The theme,
gracious forgiving grace, accepting little
children and turning none away who came
to him in faith
The 2:30 meeting was the best meet
ing thus far. It was devoted to children
and young people. At the altar service
following the sermon several were con
verted, and tears flowed freely. The
speaker urged every one to pray. He
wished all to be converted and
go out to do valiant work for Christ. The
question is how to reach the outstanding
masses. There are many statuary Christ
ians, dignified but of no use. They need
melting as Cromwell melted tho statues of
old. I subjoin a story giving an idea of
the subject;matter of Mr. Hammond's ser
mons, ' although the beauty is marred by
not hearing him relate it:
'•A little girl lived in a deep ravine at
the foot of a mountain in Switzerland. A
huge rock had fallen down the mountain
side and lodged in the ravine thus making
a natural bridge. The mother of the child
was an earnest Christian and often told her
daughter about Christ. She a'so
told her that unless she came to
him she would be. lost forever. Finally
the mother's prayers were answered. Her
little one felt that Christ alone could save
her. God's spirit taught her that Jesus
paid the debt and that he stood with out
stretched arms ready to receive her; so
she went to Jesus and trusted in him. Her
father was not a Christian. One day when
about to cross the rock bridge the mother
saw that it was about ready to fall. The
frost had loosened it. She told her little
child that if she ever crossed it she would
be dashed in pieces . The next day the
father told his child that he was going
over across the bridge. She said to him
it was not safe, but he only laughed. When
she saw that he was determined to go she
begged to go with him. While they were
walking along together she looked up in
her father's face and said: "Father, if I
should die will you promise to love
Jesus and meet me in heaven? You are
not going to die, don't speak of it, he said.
But if I should die do promise to meet me
in heaven. Yes! Yes! he said at last.
When they came near the crossing place,
she said: "Father, please stand here a
minute." She loved him dearly and was
willing to run the risk of dying for him.
She started across and was crushed to
death. The trembling parent crept to the
edge and with eyes dim with tears, gazed
wildly upon the wreck. He never loved
his child so much, but he saw that he had
much more reason to love Jesus, who had
done so much to save him. You would
say that he must be a very wicked man
who does not love the memory of his chill.
But is it not a thousand times worse for
you not to love Him who has loved you so
much more than the little one her father
A new boat house has been erected.

Opinion of Attorney General Hahn.
In reply to a question by Prof. Kiehle
asking if the employment of a teacher by
a trustee and the clerk of a school district
without any notice to the directors, and
without the latter's holding a meeting and
acting as a body upon the question, is
legal, Gen. Hahn replies that it is not.
He further 6tates, in his opinion, in sub
stance, that by section 31 of the laws of
Minnesota, relating to public schools, it ia
provided that the board of trustees,
"at a meeting called for that pur
pose, shall hire a teacher." This,
by necessary implication, precludes the
idea of a valid hearing being made in any
other manner. There must be a meeting,
because it is the board and not the individ
uals who compose it who are to hire, and it
must be called for that purpose so that
each and every member of the board may
know that the performance of this very im
portant public duty is the business to be
considered and determined at such meet
ing. Judgment and discretion are to be
exercised in making the selection, and
conference and comparison of judgment
are necessary in order to reach a proper
The act is in its nature judicial, and the
general rule of law governing such bodies
and from such positive requirement of
statute, is that all meet or have notice to
meet when official action is intended.
It was clearly not the intention of the
legislature to confer upon the individual
members constituting the board of trus
tees the power of acting separately in the
selection and appointment of teachers.
The intention was to have them act and
confer together, the result|of their com
bined judgment or of the majority of them
constituting a legal act.
liuiltling Societies Must Pay Taxes oi
Tlieir Loams.
Judge Brill rendered a decision yester
day in the case of H. M. Rice, county
treasurer vs. the St. Paul Mutual Building
society No. 1. The suit was brought to
collect the county tax on $108,830) which
the society had loaned to its stock holders
on May 1, 1881. The company resisted
the payment chiefly on the ground that
as the stockholders were at liberty to draw
out their funds at will they were liable to
have the sum reduced or all exhansted and
that they should not be compelled
to pay a tax on such an uncertain
fund. Judge Brill decides against the
building society onthe ground that they
are incorporated for proht and should be
taxed like all corporations conducted for
profit. The judge regards any serious
withdrawal of funds as too improbable to
enter into consideration. The defense
made the further point that in any event
there should be $100 exempted for each
stockholder. This too is overruled on the
ground that the corporation and not the
individual stockholder is the owner .
Immigration Pabulnm.
Secretary Young has issued the new
eight page pamphlet of the state immigra
tion board, which is headed, "The unde
veloped northern counties of Minnesota
in 1883." The counties embraced in this
descriptive pamphlet are Cook, Lake,
St. Louis, Itasca, Cass and Beltrami, which
lie north of the Northern Pacific railway
and east of the Red River valley. The
area of land therein is placed at 14,477,
--001.57 acres, and the area of water at
2,082,760.79 acres. The region for the
greater part is a region of dense forests,
thick undergrowth, lakes and streams and
numerous marshes. Its geological features
are asserted to show large deposits of
iron, copper and silver ores,plumbago and
other ores. The pamphlet treats also of
building stones, lakes and streams, the
climate, the soil, vegetable products,
animals, birds and fish, the inhabitants,
industries, agriculture, prospective rail
roads, etc. It can be procured by applica
tion to Mr. Young, by mail or otherwise.
Some Testimony Favorable to the Accused
Adduced— The Adjournment Till Mon
The court martial session of yesterday
did not exceed an hour in length, although
four witnesses were examined for the ac
After reading the minutes of Thursday,
Col. Ilges filed with the judge advacate a
written statement embracing the reasons
why he desired the court to summon Gen.
Rosser, paymaster general of the army at
Washington. The court went into secret
session on considering the colonel's re
quest, and when again in open session, the
judge advocate announced that the court
had decided not to grant the request.
Major Alfred E. Bates, witness for the
prosecution, was then called for the de
fense, and testified that he had been sta
tioned in Washington since June 1, 1882,
and that his duty as post paymaster was
to pay the accounts of army officers. He was
then asked to state,without giving names,
if, in the discharge of his duties he had
ever received the accouts of officers in da
plicate or triplicate, and paid the same.
Objection was made by the judge ad
vocate, which objection was sustained by
the court.
Col. Ilges said he had no further ques
tions to ask the witness .
Major Wm. Smith was then called, to
whom the same question was put by the
accused. Objection was made by the
prosecution, and sustained by the court.
Lieut. Col. Gibson, a member of the
court, was then sworn, and testified to his
acquaintance with the accused, and to his
general reputation as an officer and a gen
tleman and his excellent record in the
service, all of which was very favorable to
Col. Ilges.
Mr. Albert Scheffer was sworn for the
defense, and testified that after refreshing
his memory, and on investigation of his
bank, he was positive the pay accounts of
the colonel for August, November and
December had never been sent to Wash
ington for collection. That there was an
expressed understanding between himself
and Col . Ilges that these accounts were
given as collateral security for the loan of
$300 to Ilges, and that he was to
hold them subject to redemption by Col.
Ilges as soon as Ilges could obtain from
the United States treasury $2,000 which
was due him; that the money was loaned
to Ilges irrespective of the face
value of the pay accoants. He
was satisfied that Col. Ilges did net intend
to defraud him in any way, and that the
reason the accounts were not redemed was
owing to negligence and carelessness on
the part of the colonel. The accounts had
never been presented for payment in the
sense and manner in which bank paper
was "presented," and no effort had been
made to collect them from the govern

Son- Senator Peterson Used Gov. Hubbard
for an Advertisement.
jMankato Review.]
It seems that Gov. Hubbard and our
fellow townsman, Capt. Burger, were
specially honored on the occasion of their
recent visit to New Ulm. They were
guests of Col. Bobleter, and when received
and escorted to the military camp, Senator
Peterson shrewdly used the occasion, the
governor and his honorable staff officers as
a huge advertising dodge. The senator is
engaged in the farming machine business,
and to display the merits of a traction en
gine of which he has the agency he im
provised a special train to convey the hon
ored guests to the camp. Following the
engine, as we are informed,
came two very rough looking farm
wagons, then a single buggy in
which rode our honored fellow-townsman,
Capt. Burger, adorned in regimentals, re
ceiving the tributes of an admiring popu
lace, followed by the governor and his
staff. The latter did not relish the idea of
being used, a la Barnum, to advertise Sam
Peterson wares, but being a candidate for
re-election, and in view of the fact that the
honorable Sam had repeatedly voted for
him in the senatorial contest, he had to en
dure it as patiently as his sense of pro
priety and official dignity would permit.
The valorous Burger enjoyed the ovation
tendered him. It is said that some of the
more intelligent citizens of New Ulm did
not enjoy witnessing the prostration of the
executive of the state to the uses of an ad
vertising dodge, but generally the popu
lace did not fathom the honorable Sam's

The Man lTho Interrupts.
[Bill Nyc.j
I do not, as a rule, thirst for the
blood of my fellow man. I am willing
that the law should in all ordinary cases
take its course; but when we begin to dis
cuss, the man who breaks into a conversa

Arthur's Heroic Self-Saerifiee.
[Cincinnati Enquirer.]
"Half a dozen girls and their ambitions
mothers have believed they had fairly
"bagged' Mr. Arthur, when in fact he never
thought the second time about them. I
know of some very funny things growing
out of this sort of fancy. I will tell you
one. Last winter there was a very pretty
girl here from the principal city of a great
western state, and she was presented to the
president. Of course he was polite, as he
always is, and she immediately thought
she 'had' him. Her knowledge of the
world was extremely superficial, and her
mother has very little sense or knowledge
of t'ae usages of the best society.
She boasted of her daughter's con
quest to her acquaintances, and finally
the story was telegraphed to a western
paper. A friend of the president saw the
dispatch and showed it to him . That
evening there was something going on at
the White house. Our flamboyant child
of the Occident was there, clothed in her
radient loveliness and a perfectly fitting
gown from Pingot's, and she was very
pretty. She had intimated to about twen
ty friends that she ment to parade her
captive. So, with an air of assurance
born of her coarse-vaDity. she endeavored
to monopolize him. But, to her utter
amazement, she could not get into the
circle of intimes at all. He barely looked
at her. did not ask her to promenade,
and when supper came took down a Vir
ginia cousin of his late wife, who was
neither young nor pretty, and had never
heard of Pingot. The girl went home
crying with mortification and rage, and
Mr. Arthur was never polite to her again.
"Well, but is the president a marrying
man?" I asked.
"No, I think not. If he had cared to he
might have married an immense fortune
before this. There is a lady in New York,
the widow of a man five times a million
aire. She is not over thirty, and one of
the handsomest women in America. She
would be very glad to marry him, I know,
and at one time I thought he meant some- '
thing by his attentions in that quarter.
There are other instances, but this is the
only one in which I saw any possibilities.
No, I don't believe he will ever marry.*'
TJicir Yield of Gold and Silver During Zast
The following is an abstract of the spe
cial report of Mr. Burchard, director of
the mint, upou the production of the
precious metals in the United States,
which was ordered to bo printed by the
last congress. The yield of the mines of
the United States for 1882 wa3 $32,500,000
in gold, $46,800,000 in silver; a total of
$79,300,000. Compared with the previous
year, this shows a decline of $2,200,000 of
gold and an increase of $3,800,000 of
silver. The comparative decline in
the production of gold was greater in Cal
ifornia than in any other state or terri
tory — the yield being $1,406,000 less than
in 1881. This resulted from the interrup
tion of hydraulic mining in some of the
northern and middle counties, owing to
litigation, and also from the falling off in
the production of the quartz mines at
Bodie. In Oregon, where the mining is
chiefly placer, there was a diminution, and
also in Nevada, Idaho and Dakota. In sil
ver the principal increase was in Idaho,
Montana and New Mexico — Idaho showing
an increase of $700,000, Montana $1,740,
--000, and New Mexico $1,500, Colorado
furnished about $600,000 less silver than
in ISSI . Of the bullion production of the
country, $309,74,958 of gold and $31,400,
--782 of silver were deposited at the mints
and assay offices for coinage, or return in
bars to depositors. Of the deposits of
gold $5,000,000 was paid in bars for man
ufacturing purposes, and the remainder
went into coinage; $1,400,000 was furnish
ed by private refineries for manufactur
ers' use, and there was an export of $175.
--000 in silver bars. Of the
total silver production, $15,750,
--000 was exported— ss,994,ooo furnished
by the mints and assay offices to manufac
turers, $350,000 by private refineries for
the same purpose, and $24,70u,000 was
used in coinage. The production of the
coutry was from the states and terri
tories as follows:

Alaska $150,000
Arizona 1,065,000 $7,500,000
California 16,800,000 845,000

Friendship of Cameron anil Sutler.
[Augusta (Ga. ) Chronicle.]
Years ago an uncle of Gen. Butler was
senator from South Carolina. He then did
sonic favor to the Hon. Simon Cameron
which the latter never failed to remember.
When Gen. M. C. Butler presented his
credentials as a senator from South Caro
lina, the Hon. Simon Cameron notified, it
is said, his son and successor, Donald, that
the time had come for returning the ob
ligation of a former period. Had Don
Cameron been a mere partisan he wonld
have very likely prevented Gen. Butler from
securing his seat. But the son had as keen
a sense of honor as the father had, and
with a courage that was as admirable as
the gratitude was rare, he literally rose
above faction and played the part of
a heroic gentleman. From that time
forth Senators Cameron and Butler
have been warm friends, and it is
within tho writer's knowledge that the at
tachment is founded upon something much
more ideal than a mere reciprocity of obli
gation . Senator Cameron admires Sena
tor Butler, and has on numerous ©ccasions,
found that he was a friend to count on.
It is the custom for senators to pair with
each other indefinitely if necessary. Sen
ator Butler does exactly right in so pairing
with Senator Cameron, just as Senator
Frye paired for many months with Sena
tor Ben Hill when the senate was much
more closely divided than it may be next
December. No man of sense or honor
will object to Senator Butler's action. We
are satisfied that southern Democrats will
commend him for it. Barring his poli
tics, Senator Cameron is a man cordially
liked by Democratic senators and ready to
respond (o them in all proper ways. It
will, therefore, be seen that Senator Butler
has no reason to be harshly criticised for
this intimacy, and that he is perfectly
right, in an amicable and parliamentary
sense, in pairing with the Pennsylvanian,
just as long as any necessity exists for
such action.
Webster's financiering.
Daniel Webster's financiering is the
subject of many anecdotes at Washington,
and one of them thus describes how he one
day assisted his friend Rufus Choate.
Choate needed §500 and he applied to Mr.
Webster. "Five hundred dollars'." says
Webster. "No, I haven't that amount, but
I will get it for you, Choate." The latter
was glad to hear it and would wait. ' ; Draw
your note," said Webster, "I'll sign it and
bring you the money. While you are about
it make the note for a thousand; a thou
sand is as easy to get as live hundred."
Choate said that five hundred was all he
needed. 'Til take the other five hundred,"
said Webster. The note was drawn and
Mr. Webster, taking his cane, went into
the avenue. "Good morning, Mr. Cor
coran, good morning," said he, as he
entered the great banking house which was
the fiscal agent of the government. "Good
morning, Mr. Secretary," said the great
banker in the blandest manner, "what
is it I can do for you this morning, Mr.
Secretary?" Mr. Webster was secretary
of state at the time. "A little favor for
my friend Choate. He wants a little
money, and I told him I thought I could
get it for him. A thousand, I believe he
made bis note for," passing the paper to
the banker . There was no such thing as
hesitating, much less declining, and so the
banker was only happy to accommodate
the head of Mr. Fillmore's administration.
The gold was laid out in two equal piles at
Mr. Webster's request. Putting one in
each pocket, and with one of the bows
which only Mr. Webster could give, he
departed. "Here, Choate, here is the five
hundred," said the great expounder, enter
ing where Choate was waiting. Handing
him the gold Mr. Webster resumed his
reading where he had been interrupted by
Choate's entrance. It is further stated that
Mr. Corcoran has in his collection of auto
graphs a note for $1,000 signed by Rufus
Choate and indorsed by Daniel Webster.
An Actual Outcast.
This is Henry Watterson's picture of
Rutherford B. Hayes :
" But he happened to be a very small
man. He coveted the poor glory of the
presidency. _ He wanted the salary, and
when he got in he improvised a temper
ance movement to cut off the wine bills and
save expenses. Out of the $200,000 he
received during his four years of service,
he carried back to Ohio $150,000 . In office,
be rewarded all the thieves who got him
the place. Therefore, out of office, he is an
object of contempt. He is a nobody.
Though he was four yearß president of the
United States, no self -respecting body, po
litical, religious, educational or military,
could afford to make him its figure-head.
He is reduced for his recognition as a man,
though yet on the sunny sido of sixty, to
harvest homes and base ball clubs—
actual outcast."
