Chicago, Aug. 30. — The members of the
St. Paul committee selected to escort the
distinguished German guests of the North
ern Pacific company from Chicago to St.
Paul, arrived this afternoon and are com
fortably quartered in parlors at the Palmer
house. The delegation comprised the fol
G. Willias, M. Holl,
Ansel Oppenheim, Albert Scheffer,
Wm. P. Murray, A . Yon Deyn,
Arnold Kolman, C. Stahlmann,
L. Fisher, G. B«hn,

Dr. Stamm.
Several of the distinguished foreign
guests invited to participate in the cere
monies of the opening of the Northern
Pacific railroad arrived here yesterday and
this morning in advance of the main
party. Ameng them was Dr. Edward
Lasker, of Berlin. Perhaps no one of the
many people who saw the stranger
enter the portals of the hotel suspected
the little portly gentleman, with a round,
kind face, dressed without any other con
sideration than that of comfort, to be the
most formidable antagonist of the great
Bismarck on the floor of the German
reichstag and in German public life. Dr.
Lasker is at once one of the brightest and
one of the most popular of the German
public men who have taken an active part
in shaping the German empire and bring
ing about German amity. He has been a
member of the opposition ever since he
entered publio life, but at the same time
never allowed any doubt about his patriot
ism or the purity of his motives to even
spring up. Very few men, indeed, have a
stronger belief in Germany and her im
portance among the world's powers than
Dr. Edward Lasker. This great ad
versary of Bismarck diJ not come,
however on any mission based on
Bismarck's Ukase excluding American
fork from the German markets. He did
not come on any mission at all but simple
to see the country .
"For the several years past," he said to
the reporter. *'I intended to take a trip to
the United States because I felt a lively in
terest in. them and wanted to see for my
self what influences this rapidly growing
new nation might in time have on the
entire civilized world. But I was not per
mitted to see my desires realized before
this summer when I received an invitation
to be present at the opening of the North
ern Pacific railroad. I shall join Mr. Vil
lard's party here in Chicago, but preferred
to leave Germany several months ahead of
the rest of the party because I wanted rest
and recreation. I must confess I found
both while I was in New York on
the Hudson, in the Catskills,
in Saratoga and some other eastern resorts,
and beside gained a most favorable im
pression of America. The hospitality of
the Americans is really wonderful."
"Did you have any opportunities to
observe the social and political condition
of the country ?" the reporter asked.
"I have conversed with a great many
well informed people and improved every
opportunity that "offered to give informa
tion. The conclusions I reached from what
I have learned amounts to this, that Amer
ica, politically and socially, is still in its
babyhood. Your political parties seem
to have no defined principles aad your
whole public life has an unfinished, uncer
tain character."
"Have you made any observations about
the feelings of American public men on
the tariff question 5"
"I have and am free to say that a great
many thinking men favor my belief in
free trade. It would seem to me that the
free traders who are now to be found in
both political parties will sooner or later
form a new and powerful political party.
But at present the free trade movement is
still very small and hardly well enough
understood. If the tariff question enters
into the next national campaign I think
the Republican party will declare for a
protective tariff, while the Democratic
party will advocate free trade. Most of
the free traders now are Democrats I
I believe although I have met with many
Republicans who are strong advocates of
unrestricted free tiade."
"As a free trader you do not approve
then of the exclusion of American pork
from the, German market?"
"I can answer that question only by
saying lam a free trader and opposed in
principle to every restriction on
international trade. I fully
understand that the order excluding
American pork from the German markets
is based on the claim that the measure was
necessary for sanitary reasons. But I
know that the true reason is to be sought
in the protective policy of the reactionary
pafrty in Germany of the junkers who do
not like the competition of America in
agricultural products. They who control
almost the entire food production in
Germany want to control the market also
by excluding all competition, and nothing
suited them better than the strong feeling
against America in the industrial classes
which the discrimination against import
ed manufactures in the American markets
has caused. This feeling will grow
stronger the longer this discrimination
lasts and I fear should the United States
answer the prohibition of the Amerioan
pork in the German market by prohibiting
the importation of German products tha
reactionary party would be only too glad
to close the German markets to American
products of all kinds, much to the detri
ment of the consuming classes in Ger
many, I will admit, but to the great advo
cate of the producers will then be able to
regulate the prices to suit themselves."
'•In your opinion the United States
should adopt free trade?"
"Free trade will sooner or later be the
rule among all civilized nations. It is one
of the conditions o f . universal peace."
Among the other guests were the Earl
and Countess of Onslow, the Hon. Sir John
Broderick;and lady, Hilda Broderick, and
Col. Allen Gardner. They are on a tour
through America and have accepted an
invitation to join Mr. Villard's party.
A Globe representative called on Lord
Onßlow and found that gentleman in a
happy frame of mind and filled wiih ad
miration for America and the cordial
r9ceptfon that has attended his stay in this
country thus far. The earl is accomplish
ed, a close observer of the history of
parties in England, and he discusses ques
tions of state in a decidedly intelligent
manner. He is a man of quick, nervous
temperament, a good conversationalist,
and what he says comes forth in clear cut
sentences, disclosing energy of thought
and sincere convictions on the subject in
hand. In personal appearance he is de
cidedly American . Attired in the conven
tional black dress suit, his clear complexion
and sandy hair would indicate to the
observer that he was a limb of the law
such as one. meets every day where
the disciples of Blackstone most do
congregate. The earl of Onslow, Sir Wil
liam Hillier Onslow, is by.official designa
tion of the county of Salop, Viscount Cron
ley, of Cronley, county Surry, baron Ons
low, of Onslow county Salop, and of west
Clanelon, county Surry, Baron Clanley,
of Imbercourt, and a baronet. He was
born March 7, 1853, and succeeded his
grand uncle as fourth earl October 24,
1870. The earl sits in the house of lords
and under Beaconsfield's government he
he was the representative of the local
board in the house of lords where juris
diction embraced matters connected with
the poor laws and towns and cities and
controlled the management of prisons and
lunatic asylums.
"As a conservative how do you regard
Gladstone and his policy ?"
"I do not believe the conservatives,
have been in a position to impugn
the policy and induce him to appeal to the
country. Some of Gladstone's plans were
ill-advised, but he generally abandoned
them when they met with too general dis
favor, as instance, his abandonment of lhe
Suez canal scheme the other day. There
is a strong feeling in the country among
trading interests that England mnst have
command of the shortest route to India.
I, for one would be surprised if the British
troops were withdrawn from Egypt until
either England has predominant control
of the existing canal or builds another on
her own account. The prime minister
when De Lesseps built his first canal was
Palmerston. I believe it was held that
De Lesseps'made a mistake in not invit
ing English capital instead of French to
go into it. Now there is a very strong
feeling in favor of England having
control of the second canal. Gladstone
has |two elements to contend with — a con
servative minority in the house of com
mons and a conservative majority in the
house of lords. The leader in the house of
lords must be a man of tact and great de
cision, as he can throw out a bill if he is
satisfied the measure will not win favor.
To illustrate, the bill in the house of com
mons altering the relations between
landlords and tenants drew from Lord
Salisbury the advice to his faotion to ac
quiesce in it. If he had not have done
this the house of lords would have been
accused of having only the interests of
landlords at heart as against the large
Hon. William St. John Freemantle
Brodrick is the eldest son of Viscount
Middleton, and is accompanied on this
journey by his young wife. He is a mem
ber of the conservative party in the house of
commons and was there present during the
existing session until August 7. His father
is a peer of both England and Ireland, and
being an Irish landlord, the son took spe
cial interest in Irish politics. When ques
tioned by a reporter concerning the Irish
people, Mr. Broderick said:
"I think the Irish landlord is more favor
able to his tenants than landlords any
where else in the world. I was speaking a
few days since with an American lawyer,
and I asked him how soon he could turn
out a tenant here if he did not pay his
rent. He said he could get him out in
about three months. In Ireland, a delin
quent tenant can hold on six months, and.
if he takes advantage of certain pleading,
he can remain six months longer.
Bofore the adoption of the land
act the average rent per acre
was thirty shillings in England and only
£1 in Ireland. Now it has been reduced
in Ireland to 15 shillings per acre. But the
reduction has not been full relief. It does
n't make any difference how much you
reduce rent if the land will not enable peo
ple to live off it. In the western part of
Ireland there are ten times as many people
per acre as the land can support. You
cannot put a ham on a cheese plate, no
more can you make an acre of land sup
port so many people as there are on it, no
matter how low the rent may be. For this
reason the land bill has been a failure in
that line. We favor voluntary emigration
but the home rulers are opposed to it."
The main party of German guests
arrived this evening by spe
cial train direct from sight-seeing at
Niagara Falls, and quartered at the Pal
mer house. The stalwart form of Hon.
Carl Schurz, editor of the New York Even

And now all that is needed i 3 fair
weather to make the 3rd of September a
day to be remembered, so that in the far
future wrinkled age shall make it a con
centrating point of memory. "It was in
the year of the Villard reception in St.

dons that can be done by the general com
mittee, and the sub-committees are hard at
work carrying out the details of the pro

spectacular display unsurpassed in street
pageant. The streets in the line of march

Gen. Sanborn, after the rising of the gen
eral committee yesterday morning remain
ed in the mayor's office receiving deputa
tions from societies, trades, unions, the
crafts and industries arranging with them
their places in the grand procession. It
was a hard day for the general and his
powers of organization was taxed to the
utmost. The Bame hours were
fully .occupied in arranging special invita
tions for the banquet. Mr. Clark had his
energies strained in receiving the gener
ous offers of private carriages. The com
mittee on toasts and speeches passed an
anxious day but was enabled to announce
that they had secured E. F. Drake, Esq., to
represent the city of St. Paul and Ex-Gov
ernor Ramsey to take care of the interests
of the "northwest," while the mayor, C. D.
O'Brien, Esq., will deliver the address of
Aid. Van Slyke, chairman of committee
on decoratione, among his other duties has
been seeing that the streets in the line of
march are cleared of all obstructions and
thoroughly cleaned and the scavanger ac
cordingly has been busy about Broadway
and other streets where building operations
are extensively carried on. Other mem
bers of the decoration commit
tee have been looking after
flags of all nation?, evergreens
banners, red, white and blue dimity, or
whatever the ladies and dry goods clerks
call it, and several of the important build
ings are already assuming a holiday air,
and festive robe. Among them is the
on Broadway, which is being decorated in
ternally with very striking and elaborate
designs, in which flowers and fruit, and
grain and buffalo heads, and deer and an
telope and elk horns and antlers are pic
tar esquely introduced. The decorations
extend from the basement to the
topmost floor. In the main
hall will be the chef-d'oeuvre
spirited portrait of Villard mounted in a
floral frame. It wlli be supported on
either side by Portland and St. Paul . In
front of the building spanning Broadway
will be erected a magnificent arch, the
frame work of which is now being erected.
The stores on Third and Seventh streets are
displaying marvelous stocks of "bunting,"
flags, banners and lanterns to tempt those
who intend to help the general effect by
decorating and illuminating their dwel
lings. Yesterday at the headquarters of
the different bands practice was the order

The second letter of the brief series
descriptive of the journeying of the jour
ney toward Wonderland of the Itufus

dropped as Lord Headly put on the brakes
for the stop at the weird and romantic
monntain-side station at the entrance of
At Little Missouri, a stop of an hour or
more was made. In this bijou valley
nestled among the hills and bluffs are the
Pyramid Park hotel, a small supply store
and a couple of saloon?. This is the out
let of a coal mine in which a force of
r.bout 100 miners are employed, and the
coal was being delivered from the mines
at the rate of from twenty to thirty car
per day. The country back of til
bluff is excellent for ranching
and at Little Missouri the Marquis
De Mores, of Paris, has established a
quite extensive beef packing establish
ment, and has at present upon his ranch
at Little Missouri, and a eacond ranch
fifteen or twenty miles beyond, 8,000 sheep
and 5,000 cattle. A member of the party.
Baron Salvador, had letters of introduc
tion to the Marquis, and having tele
graphed him of his passing, the latter was
at the mountain-side station to meet him.
The Marquis, who is the son of the Duke
of Vallambrosa, is a young man not more
than thirty-five years of age, if
so much, and was dressed in a
mountaineer's suit of corduroy,
wore a wide-brimed, brigandish felt
hat. About two weeks earlier the Marquis
had killed a man near by, for which he had
been arrested and taken to Mandan, where
it was held by the examining court that it
was a case of justifiable homicide . There are
two versions of the story, and probably
somewhere between the two is the truth.
The Marquis, as the story runs, had gotten
into a difficulty in France, was obliged to
leave the country, came to this, and having
great means at his command, and a fancy
for a wild, free western life, decided to
embark as a ranchman. Before making his
western settlement he had married
the daughter of Monseiur Yon Hoffman, a
New York banker.
determined to accompany her husband in
his residence npon his ranch. Upon a high
bluff, reached only by a circuitous route
from the railroad station, though in plain
sight and the distance seemingly short,
yet involving a ride of two miles, the Mar
quis built a handsome, commodious house,
which strikes the passing traveler with sur
prise, as nothing in comparison to it is to be
seen on the route. The spot is a charming
one. The beauties of nature and the love
liness of scenery as viewed therefrom are
a perpetual delight. These facts,
added to others, the wealth of the new
comer, his lavish purchases of stock, creat
ing a monopoly so to speak, his disinclina
tion for any association with the trappers
and hunters,, and ill-to-do frontiersmen,
awakened at once their dislike, jealousy
and hostility. With the alleged intention
of driving him out, various annoyances
were resorted to, even to the shooting of a
man in his employ, but no effect being
produced, one night, not long before, it
is alleged that his house was fired into,
and in the affray that followed the Mar
quis 6hot and killed a man named Riley,
an old trapper of the neighborhood, a popu
lar man among his class, and the partner,
as a hunter, of a man known as Frank
O'Donnell, fermerly one of Ouster's scouts,
and an Indian fighter of great intrepidity
and even genuis.
is that there was no assault upon the house
of the Marquis, but that the Marquis lay in
ambush for Riley and shot him in revenge
for the killing of his employe a couple of
months earlier. When Riley was killed, a
fight followed between the Marquis and his
retainers and O'Donnell and his followers,
the latter having two horses shot under
him and a bullet hole made in his hat.
The affair terminated without any
other fatality than the death of Riley.
It so happened that while the excursion
train was pausing at Little Missouri, up
rode O'Donnell accompanied by three or
four friends, his first appearance there
since the affray and arrest, examination
aud discharge of the Marquis. O'Donnell
was cordially welcomed by those who
knew him, among whom was
of pleasant features, who grasped his hand
eagerly, saying, "I'm glad to see you back
again, Frank, you must stay here with us."
To which the reply came, "I'm glad to see
you Lizzie , and rather glad to be back
here myself, and of course I mean to stay."
The quick ■ eye of the scout dis
covered the Marquis among the group of a
hundred standing around, and he hastened
to him, held out his hand and assured him
he held no hard feelings toward him.
The Marquis took the proffered hand and
expressed Hentiments of reciprocating the
same feeling. But while this exhibit
took place between the two principals,
i the settlers who expressed any opinion
were emphatic in the term 3in which they
stated their dislike of the Marquis. And
that gentleman was ill at ease. His eye
was restless, in his belt he wore two large
pistol 3 and a savage looking knife. He
was in haste to take leave of his friend,
the Baron, and asjhejmountedjhis pony to
ride away a gun was put in his hand, and
his two attendants were similarly armed.
A quiet, demure old trapper remarked, as
the Marquis cantered away on his pony,
that he would not give anything for his
life. In fact he said it had been sworn
that he should not leave the place alive,
and he did not think it likely he would.
It may be of course, that
may not be realized. It was not pleasant
to think, however, of the handsome young
Marquis exposed to such jeopardy, and
in large part due to his own rashness, and
misunderstanding of human nature.
And surely the cultured young
wife, reared in luxury and
accustomed to all the good gifts which
wealth commands, in the lonely mansion
upon the mountain side, with her year old
baby boy. became a subject of saddened
interest, which, for the moment, interested
every heart. Speaking of his future plans,
the Marquis said that in a couple of weeks
he should leave the place, taking his fami
ly to reside in Paris during the winter,
leaving his large business interests to the
care of a partner. Should he happen to
leave the place with his life secure, more
than likely he will never return to it, and
the universally expressed opinion was, that
he would be wise to get away and abandon
forever the schemes which invited his loca
tion there.
Leaving Little Missouri the excursionists
sped on, and in the new and charming
scenes that invited observation the scenes
behind were, for the time at least forgot
traverses the beautiful park region of
Minnesota, the broad wheat fields of Da
i kota, and courses through a score of flour
, ishing towns and cities which it has
caused to spring up out of the wilderness.
It affords views cf those remarkable
buttes, mounds and pillars, bright in col
or and strange in form, which are known
as the Bad Lands, or the Pyramid
Park of the Little Missouri.
It passe.3 through the rich valley
of the Yellowstone for hundreds of miles
where mountain slopes are mantled with
grasses that feed great herds and flocks,
and where cities just founded are develop
ing into importance. And so for more
than a thousand miles this railroad takes
the traveler through a region possessing
not only the charm of variety to an extra
ordinary degrees, but showing many fea
tures of peculiar interest.
The most ms jestic of its fellow?. C4O
miles from St. Jraui on our outward jour
ney, was a sight of prominence, and from
the rear of the obersayation car we were
afforded sights and pictures not soon to be
forgotten. Here and there we saw the
villages of the prairie dope, with hundreds
of the sprightly creatures sitting at the
door of his cave ready to disappear at the
slightest alarm. Night overtook the tour
ists before reaching Glendive where it was
proposed to remain until daylight, but '
being somewhat belated, a short halt only
was there made, and before the gray of
morning came again Miles City, Ft. Keogh,
Lignite and Horton had been passed, and
daylight found the tourists at Rosebud,
800 miles away, with the famed Yellowstone
river, with its swift running current in
full view. Speeding onward Howard,
Caster, Riverside, Pompey's Pillar,
all points of interest, were* passed and
about noon the train pulled up for
915 miles from our starting'point. This is
an interesting town, and the foundation ia
already laid for a flourishing city. Al
though its existence began in June, 1882,
it now has a population of 1,200 people,
with good buildings, stores, shops, and all
the facilities for comfortable living. It is
the outlet for an extended region of ranch
ing country and its cattle yards or corrals
are the largest seen so far on the route .
Two daily papers are published here,
while eastern papers have a considerable
escalation, and the newstand of Mr. Mal
comb is liberally patronized. The objec
tive point to be reached after leaving Bil
lings is Livingston, 1,030 miles from St.
Paul . The run between these points was
made with a smoothness and celerity not
before noticeable en route, and the termi
nal point was reached at 6 p. m.,
Livingston time, which is one hour and
forty-nve minutes slower than St. Paul
time. For some miles before com
ing to a halt for the night at
Livingston the snow mountains had
been in sight to the delight of the enrap
tured party, who hourly grew more en
tnusiastic and enchanted. Here at the
gateway of the Wonderland just beyond,
it is worth one's while to stop long enough
to learn something of the "Denver of the
Northwest," located at the geographical
center of the great route that brings the
Pacific shore within sight and hearing of
the Atlantic coast. While the excursionists
were gleefully enjoying the glories of a
Livingston sunset, the Globe historian
gathered material for letter number three.

As Seen in the Damaged Visages in the
JPolice Court Yesterday".
The sultry beams of the midsummer
sun crept through the Venetian 25-cent
shades of the police court windows and
shed a dog-day lustre over the bull pen
yesterday morning, and a lighter docket
has not bsen seen for many a day, as the
warm weather seems to have an enervat

John Keyman had been as full as a biled
owl; he drank several schooners of the
beautiful and it knocked him silly. When
a police men undertook to run him
in he resisted and a huge howitzer was
found in his pocket. He went over the
hills to the workhouse for twenty days.
James Dean arrived on Wednesday from
the hop-pole distriots of Wisconsin. He

not appear when his name was called, and
his bail of $25 was forfeited.
