ST. PAUL'S BOOM. The Effect Upon Real Estate of the En try of the Illinois Central Ballroad. LiRGE INCREASE IN TALUES. Some of the Luc Persons Who Will Add to Their Wealth by the Enterprise. SPECULATIONS AS TO THE FUTURE Can Any Great Amount of Business lie Diverted From Its Present 11 i When the annonnc9ment was made in the Globe last season that the Northern Pacific had purchased the well known "Ed Rice place" on Mississippi Btreet together with several other^large tracts of land in the northern aHd western parts of Si.Paul,and that these lands were to be nsed for the machine shops, fouadrieisand car works of that great road there was a general rush for real estate all around in the vicinity of those purchases, and all the lßnd that could be got hold of was picked up at any price the owners saw fit to pnt upon it. There was a general scramble for real estate and the reai estate offices were over run by those who were anxious to make money quickly, and a good deal of it. The entrance of a large railroad corperation into a city like St. Paul for the purpose of making it the terminus of its system is a signal event, and it is not surpneiag that it should create an excitement in the real estate market. The same thing occurred yesterday, when the Globe announced that the Minnesota & Northwestern road, which is generally understood to be the Illinois Central, bad completed its surveys and had applied for the passage of an ordinance admitting that road into St. Paul. Early in the morning the real estate offices in the city were beseiged by an anxious crowd that was desirous of getting hold of some of the property lying arouad in the vicinity of the line of the road. The ordi nance passed by the council on Thursday evening.and published in full is the Globe yesterday gave the full particulars of where the road was to run and what the corporation owning the stock of the new road proposed to do, and what the city required to be done as a condition of its coming into the city. The effect of this was to greatly increase the value of real estate in West St. Paul. All the real prop erty in that locality has long been held at ridiculously low figureß, *and part of the time it has been such a drug in the market that it could scarcely be given away. Some of the best lots in West St. Paul have long gone begging for purchasers- It is really laughable now to tkink of the time when lotß over there would hardly be taken for the taxes due on them. These same lots could not now be bought for many thousand dollars. There are those, however, who have always had a very great deal of confidence in the West St, Paul property, and have always proved their confidence by purchasing and holding large amounts of real es tate over there. Among these are William Dawson, Edward Langevin, and the late Dr. Mintzer. A well known real estate dealer yesterday informed the writer that tie late Dr. Mintzer wrote a letter to some of his relatives in relation to this property, and -told them to hold it after his death and it would make them rich. The same real estate dealer also said that Mr. Langevin was a good many hundred thousand dollars richer yesterday than he was the day before. As an example of how much property jumped up in view of the approach of this road, known as the Minnesota & Northwestern, it may be stated that one |man who owns property over there which he was anxious three days ago to sell for three hundred dollars per lot, would not now sell them for $2,500. This is only one example of the sudden and very large increase in the value of real estate over there. That this should be the fact is not at all surprising. The price has never sustained that relative value to the price of real es tate on this side of the river that it should have sustained. It is noi surprising, therefore, that there is a very large ad vance in real estate over there. Now an event has happen ed which anyone can see is destined to render nil the property on the flat in West St. Paul very valuable. Besides this it is almost oertain that the advent of the Illinois Central into St. Paul is simply the leading off of one road which will be followed by the advent of several other roads. This will necessarily bring all the flat in West St. Paul prominently forward. It furnishes immense facilities for doing business, and will largely relieve the great pressure felt on this side of the river for more room. From Fifth street below Broadway to the river there is a continu ous network of railroad tracks, and they, are not sufficient to half accommodate the business necessary to be transacted. With a part of the business transferred to West St. Paul the roads on this side will to a considerable extent be relieved. Many shrewd business men, when the Northern Pacifio road made its appearance in the city a3 the purchaser of large tracts of land as referred to above, there are many shrewd business men who looked for a kind of divided business em pire in St. Paul. It is well known that the wholesale trade of the city has by com mon consent and natural business gravita tion settled down into the little pocket at the lower end of Third and Fourth streets, near to the railroads. This is very convenient and natural in a busi ness point of view for thel simple reason that the heavy wholesale houses must necessarily be near these great common carriers. But this pocket is daily becoming too small to accommo date the immense traffic that is forcing itself upon the city of Ht. Paul. It waj3 therefore expected by many of our best business men that when the Northern Pacific should complete its improvements in the northeast part of the city, and the St. Paul & Manitoba had pnt in the b?g works contemplated at the head of Jackson and Rice streets, that a part of the heavy wholesale trade would naturally work over in that direction, and thus re lieve the pressure upon the business facil ities furnished in the lower part of town near the railroads. There are those among our busiress men who do not clearly see after all how the fact that the Illinois Central coming into West St. Paul is going to relieve the pressure on this side of the river. They say that if a railroad amounts to any thing it must bring business to the city, or if it does not dimulv bring it itself, it should canse it to come here by some other chan nel or in some other way. It must at any rate bring business. If the new road does this in the same ratio that other roads have, it will bring more business to St. Panl than it relieves on this side of the river. This, these gentlemen say, will canse some portion of the wholesale trade to go over in the vicinity of the Northern Pacific and the St. Panl & Manitoba roadi, providing they make the improvements and pat in the works that have been talked of in the vicinity of Jackson and Rice streets. One of the best business men in the city of St. Paul, in speaking of the approach of this great road to this city, stated yester day that it, in his opinion, was undoubt edly, one of the most important events that had ever occurred. He was not pre pared to saj that it was the greatest event, for the reason that the Northern Pacific, the great transcontinental line had placed its eastern terminus here in St. Paul, which gives us a direct, through rail lin* to the Pacific coast, and practically to San Francisco. This, the gentleman was not disposed to undervalue. It was a very great stride toward the full competition of the evidence of the commercial supremacy of St Paul in this great northwest. The completion of the Northern Pacific and the establishment of its eastern terminus in St. Paul was, in hia opinion, a very natural aad conclusive ad missiom of the importance of S*. Pft»l, aad of its undisputed supremacy as a «enter of trade. This view is simply a ooaclusion that has been f orc*d upon the business judgment of the world. While admitting all this, in regard to the Northern Pacific, he still claimed that he was not pr*par*d to admit that the entrance of th* Illinois Central into St. Paul was an event of any less importance. This road, he said, was one of the older and one of th* best managed and most successful roads in the country. It rua9 through an immensely fertile and w*althy agricultural country, and is solidly fixed in all r**p*ct» aad comparatively independent. In addi tion to this, with its southern connections, it gives St. Paul a through line to New Orleans. This is what we have always wanted. The immense wheat fields of Minnesota and Dakota can now ship their wheat to Earope by way of New Orleans aB cheaply, and probably a little more cheaply than by way of New York. This is an immense advantage, and taking these considerations into account he wae not pre pared to say that the entrance of this road into St. Paul was an event that should be considered very much less important than the completion to this city of the North ern Pacific. This road to reach So. Paul, has only to oomplete its line from Mona, at the boundary line b»tween lowa and Minnesota, to this city. Independent, of this consideration of a direct rail communication with New Orleans it will be found that the entrance of this road into Si. Paul will stimulate other roads from the same direction to come here, and this is no slight considera tion . Men are to be set at work as soon as possible grading the road bed and pre paring for the track. Th* right of way has been secured,aad nothing is now want ing bnt suitable weather for the work to be proceeded with. There is but one opinion among the business men of St. Paul as to the import ance of this event. It demonstrates what the sagacious in this city have often de clared to be the fact, that all roads that expect to do business in this region must come to this city. Aside from the local effect upon the city in raising the value of property and stim ulating business here it has a deep and broad significance as demonstrating the decided commercial importance and su periority of St. Paul.

NOT THIS MVJSXIJSG, Bat Some Other Evening". Senator SaMn Will Partake of a Banquet "With Citizens of St. Paul. Senator Sabin was in the city yesterday, and will leave for Washington this evening to resume his senatorial duties. In conse quence of the pressure of his public and private engagements he has been obliged to decline for the present the banquet ten dered him by leading oitizens of St. Paul, and has sent the following note to the gentlemen signing the tender: Stiliavateb, Jan. 3,1884. Hon. Albert Scheffer, F. B. Clarke, P. H. Kelly and others: Gentlemen--I beg to gratefully acknowl edge reception of jours Ist inst. I beg you will also accept my hearty apprecia tion of the courtesy extended in your invitation for a social dinner. My time is so limited and business engage ments so pressing at this time, especially bo at the closing year, that it is almost impossible for me to find time to be with you. I Bhall, howevsr, undoubtedly again visit your city about the middle of March, and if agreeable to yourself and friends, will be very happy at that time to accept Tour hospitalities. If, however, your ar rangements are such that this postpone ment will not be agreeable, please udvise me at once by wire, and I will arrange an earlier date. I am, gentlemen, with highest regard, faithfolly yours, D. M. Sabin. Twenty-five dozen gents' uniaundried shirts, at 75c each. A trifle soiled in moving. They are worth $1. At McLain's, 384 Wabashaw street. The Building 1 Inspector .Explains. "I confess that I was somewhat taken by surprise, as I knew of no reasons why I should have been dropped," &aid Superin tendent of Buildings Elmer yesterday, in referring to the action of the council in appointing Aid. Johnson as his successor, "©f course I feel disappointed," he con tinued. "I was just beginning to place the department on a good working basis, but it was apparently the wish of the council to have me retired." "You were taken by surprise then ?" querried the reporter. "Yee, I thought I had enough votes pledged to carry it through. One would naturally suppose that the promises of eight men to sustain me would be sufficient. I am unable to say how it happenad, but as I only received five votes out of the twelve, Bomebody must have lied. How ever, it is all over; my freinds appreciate the situation; I leave the office with a blameless record and this is all I care for.' Two Fira Alarms Lhsi Evening. A still alarm of fire was sent into Cen tral fiie hall at 0:44 last evening, caused by a score of the inmates of the two story brick dwelling of W. F. Mason, 4 East Tenth, at a bad kitchen chimney burning out. At 7:35 a telephone alarm was sent in to headquarters, which w&a caused by a furnace reservoir running dry in the base ment of Gen. McClure'o two story frame house, 69 Iglehart street, occupied byJ. IH. Hiland. The ignition of matches and ! debri3 in the reservoir created a dense smudge and consequently the scare.

THE ST. PAUL DAILY GLOBE, SATURDAY MOKNJttG, JAXUAKY o, 1884. TRANSPORTATION NOTES. Roitf/h on Railroads,- The railroad 3at the present time are having the roughest time they have ever had in the northwest with the cold. A few years ago, the snow, especially on the roads in the lower part of Minnesota and Dakota interrupted travel, and about ex hausted the patience of railroad men, who were compelled to struggle with innumer able snow drifts of mountainous propor tions for weeks, which as Boon as they were removed from the tracks would be replaced by the howling winds nearly as f aßt as they could be dis placed. Now it is not the snow, that com mon enemy of railrvads, that railroad managers are struggling with, but an nemy much more subtle, and more hard to handle, and that works at night evan more effectively than it does in the day time, and whether, in the day or night, ia continually struggling for the mastery. This opponent ia the cold that comes from the frozen north upon the wings of the wind and disarms hie opponent before he attacks him and incapacitates him ia advance of the combat by paralyzing him. At the present time this cold is more se vere than it has been for years in this region and penetrates everywhere. It hai become so intense that some of the roads directed yesterday that the trains be laid up. it not being deemed safe to the travel ing public to attempt to transport people from one point to another while the rails are so thoroughly filled with frost as they arc at the present time. The cold of Wednesday night and Thursday was increased yesterday, and was a good deal more severe all over the northwest, and the mercury appeared to be doing abect its level best to make it lively for th^ railroads, and &o far as could be observed was succeeding very satis factorily. On the I. &M. division of th* Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul road yes terday afternoon all traias were aban doned, the manager regarding it as safer and better to discontinue the trains thaa to ventnre to run them with the raili, wheels and machinery so foil of frost that something was liable to snap at any moment and perhaps wreck a train, aid very likely destroy life. No notification war received in St. Panl yesterday that the trains on the H. & D. road had been sas pended, though such notification was ex pected. The traias on the river division were being run as usual, but they are run very slowly indeed for safety. The consequence is that the trains are a good deal delayed. The morning train was seven hours late, and other trains were a good deal delajed. The Albert Lea people run their trains as usual, but they were slowed up a good deal and behind time. The St. Paul & Manitoba road is having a very severe experience of the cold, and it extended over all the main lines, branch es and extensions, and the meronrj witb> out much variation ranged from 30 to 36 below. Two trains ran all day Thursday and Thursday night, and not withstanding the severe cold and the delays occasioned by the frost in the wheels and rails both arrived on time Friday morning. Each of these trains had a continuous run of 400 or 500 miles, and performed a good feat in get ting in here on time. The temperature all over this road is about the same average and the figures therefore are not given. About five o'clock the last dispatch was re ceived at the St. Paul & Manitoba head quarters from the Breckenridge division which says it is cloudy with a strong north wind, drifting badly on the extension. At Willmar the mercury showed 38 below, and at Morris 48 below. The Chicago, St. Paul <& Omaha road was struck by the same gentle breezes that visited the other roads. General Superin tendent Whitman ordered all freight trains to lay np after night. Yesterday afternoon all the trains on this road were late. The Burlington, Cedar Rapids and Northern has not had a freight train into Worthington since Dec. 31&t. Xhe dis patch that contains the above also states that the Central is able to move a little but the prospects are that they will be blockaded before night. A dispatch from Omaha slated that everything on the Ne braska division was all right up to noon yesterday. At Elroy the mercury was 32 below, Augusta 30, Altona 31, Enapp 35, Bayfield 28, Ashland 34, Clayton 32, -tew Richmond 34, Belle Plaine 38, St. James 38, Sioux City 22, Sioux Falls 30, Salem 34,Worthington 25, Luverne 25, Heron Lake 30, Woodstock 42. All along the northern division the mercury stood all the way from 30 to 40. The latest bulletin receiv ed by the St. Paul & Omaha road was dated at 4 yesterday afternoon. At that time the mercury stood as follows: Elroy 30 below, Black River Falls 25, Merrillon 30, Augusta 33, Altona 30, Hammond 25, Superior 14, Baj field 10, Ashland 17, Cumberland 15, Clayton 20, New Richmond 21. From St, James to Sioux City there was a high wind and the mer ca*.y indicated 30 below. The air was full of frost, and it looked very blizzardy. From St. James to Mankato the mercury indicated 25 below with high west winds and oloudy. From Mankato to Belle Plaine it was clear and windy the mercury showing 33 bblow. Sioux Falls branch, high wind, drifting badly, 40 below at Woodstock and Windom, and 35 below at Worthington. On the Northern Pacific there was an average of 40 degrees below on the Da kota division. Trains were in good shape, theugh running very elowly, not over eighteen miles per hour. Of course, they were a little behind. The Misaouri and Minnesota divisions were about the same. The St. Paul & Duluth road showed an average of about 30 degrees below. At Hinckley it was 38 below and at Duluth 25. Western Passenger Agents Trying to Stop the Trouble With Eastern Lines. [Chicago Tribune, 3.J The general passenger agents of the roads between Chicago and Missouri river points, and Chisago and St. Paul, met yesterday at the office of Mr. James Charl ton, of the Alton, for the purpose of tak ing some concerted action to avoid a war between eastern and western lines and place all western lines on an equal footing, as far as through passenger business from seaboard points to Missouri river points and St, Paul is concerned. As stated in Tuesday's Tribune, the Rock Island, Alton, and Milwaukee & St. Paul refused to ac cept the agreement proposed by Commissioner Pierson, on the ground that by doing so they would barter away their independence and enabie the eastern lines to dictate to the western how they must conduct their busi ness. These roads claim that they had no objection to agree upon a uniform rate of commission to be paid to regular tick et agent 3in the east, but they do not mean to tie their hands as regards tho inter change of tickets with the Laekawauna and West Shore, which the other trunk lines mean to "boycott" for refusing to join the pool. The main object, they claim, that Mr. Pierson meant to gain by his proposition was to prevent the Wesfc Shore and Lackawanna from having allies or out lets in the west. Since Saturday, when the conference between Commiesioner Pierson and the western lines was held, orders have been issued by Mr. Pierson to restore the sale of tickets over the Mil waukee & St. Paul and the Burlington. Whether this action was tak»n upon the promise of the above named roads to ac cept Mr. Pierson's proposition, could not be ascertained. The officials of these roads say they have made no promise to Mr, Pierson, while this gentleman claims they have. Although tha Alton and Rock Island now remain the only western lines vrhoie tickets are not being sold by the eastern roads, yet the other western lines are evidently not anxious to take any undue advantage of them, but, as indicat ed by yesterday's meetiag, seem to be willing to join them ia an arrangement by which harmony can be secured between the eastern and western road 3 without allowing the eastern lines to dictate to the western how they shell conduct their bneiness. All the western roads interest ed in this matter were represented as fol lows: A. V. H. Carpent*r and Ge*rge Heafford, Milwaukee & St. Paul; Jamas Charlton, Chicago & Alton; J. A. Lomax, Burlington; H. C. Towngcnd and France Chandlar, Wab&sh aad Missouri Pacific; E. St. John and W. A. Strong, Bo«k 13 --land; W. H. Siennett and W. A. Thrall, Northwestern. After a short di'scassion ii wa9 found that no serious differences existed between the western lines regarding the issue with the eastern. The roads that had thus far acted with the eastern lines sUted that all they desired was to secure an agre*nemt by which the commissions system could be regulated and a uniform system of commissions en west bound business es tablished, so as to prevent the sale of reduced tickets over certain roads. Th*y had no more desire to place their business under the jurisdiction of Commission*! 1 Pierson and the eastern lines than the Alton or Rock Island. The latter's representa tives stated that they had no desire to bring on a war with the other roads, and were perfectly willing to enter into a» agreement fixing uniform commissions and regulating their payment. The entire day was sp«nt in discussing a maximum coKimi&*ion to be paid from Chicago or Milwaukee to Missouri river points and fr*m Chicago or Milwaukee to St. Paul. Finally, Mr. Heafford, of the Milwaukee X St. Paul, was instructed to draw up an agreeaent regulating the payment of commissions, and the meeting adjoaried until half-past ten this morning. Tne fore noon meeting will be informal, and will dis cuss the agreement to be submitted by Mr. Heafford. Another meeting is to be held at 2p. m., at which it is expected a con clusion will be reached and an arrange ment perfected that will prove satisfactory to both the Esstern and Western lines. It is proposed to establish maximnm com missions as follows: Between eastern points to all Missouri river points, $3 on first class tickets, $2.50 on second class, $2 on emigrant, and $4 on round trip; between easteru points and St. Paul and Minneapolis, $2 on firut class ticket?,*!.so on second class, and $3 on round trip. Hail Votes. Clergymen's half-fare passes are ready and in the hands of the agents in St. Paul, Col. Smith, of the St. Paul & Manitoba road, will leave to-day for Milaca for a day or two. The eastern train on the Chicago, St. Paul & Omaha road was several hours late yesterday, it having been detained east of Elroy on the Northwestern road. A Buit has been brought in the United States court, at Omaha, to foreclose a mortgage on the old St. Joe & Denver City railroad, which forms the St. Joe &, Western line between Hastings and Grand Island; also to appoint a receiver. The mortgage under which the suit is brought amounts to f 500,000. An application has been made to the United States court, at Omaha, by the Union Pacific road, for an injunction to restrain the Burlington & Mis souri and the Republican Valley roads from crossing the track of the Un ion Pacific at Grand Island until the right of way has bean obtained and damages paid. The crossing which the Bnrlington has started to make at this point is re ported to be for an extension of its line from Aurora, Hamilton county, across the Platte valley ond into the Loup valley, hitherto occupied solely by the Union Pa cific. This extension is regarded only as one of several which the Burlington is in a position to build readily, and donbtless will build, since the formatien of the al liance has given an excuse for invading what has been under agreement conceded to be Union Pacifio territory. Fresment fiowen and Vanderbilt. New Yobk, Jan. 4.—The Post's Phila delphia special says, President Gowen, of the Philadelphia & Reading raihoad, luHched with Twombly, Vanderbilt's son in-law, to-day, and the' rumors are re vived upon his withdrawal from the Read ing presidency and then, he will become th» general solicitor for the entire Van derbilt system, with special supervision of the Reading and New Jersey Central roads. A gentleman closely allied to Gowen in tha Reading company, eaid, while Gowen had repeatedly refused to give any hint as to his future course he believed that this was what he bad decided upon. He would, howtver, not assume the duties of the new position for several months, as ho had arranged to sail for Europe with his family soon after the annual meeting on the 14th instant, and he would probably not return until Juae. The figures of the annual repert of tho Reading oompany will be made pnblic to-morrow. It is said they will make a very favorable showing and give ample proof that the company can afford to pay the dividends prop«sed by Gowen. Freight Hates Down. New Yobk, Jan. 4. —An order was pro mulgated by Commissioner t ink, author izing a further reduction of freight rates, in consequence of the recent develop ments regarding the rate cutting changes as follows: Chicago to New York Bth clasa,to a basis of twenty cents per 100 ponnds, 7tfa class to twenty-five cents per 100 pounds, 9th class, thirty cents, and on bogs twenty-five cents, to take effect on the sth instant, and to remain in force, only until proper arrangements are made for the restoration and permanent main tenance established tariff. A meeting of the joint executive committee will be held on the 10th to inquire into the causes of the unsettled condition. A Denial that is a Confession. Chicago, 111., Jan. 4.—A St. Paul dis patch says that the Illinois Central was the real backer of the Minnesota <fc North ern road which was yesterday granted a valuable right of way by the city of St. Paul, and alao the backer of the Winona, Alma <fc Northern road as well as other road 3, which connect with the above two. An official of the Illinois Central tais af ternoon stated that his road had nothing to do in any seiise with the roads men tioned, and declared it not likely that any of the roads mentioned in the "chain" would be constructed very soon. He ad mitted the possibility of their being con nected with the Illinois Ceniral in the fu ture. Oregon Railway Hatters. New Yobk, Jan 4.—A report was circu lated this morning tnat Endioott and Coleridge, who recently joined the Oregon Navigation & Oregon Transcontinental directory,had succeeded in prevailing upon the companies to abandon the construc tion of a new line to a connection with the Union Pacific. The Oregon Short line offiaials, and the Oregon Transconti nental company deny this, and - state that the work has been discontinued owing to heavy snow and bad weather, but in the spring the road will be rapidly pushed to completion. Meeting of Committees. Nbw York, Jan. 4.—The meeting of the Oregon Transcontinental executive com mittee was called for thi3 exening for routine business*. The investigating com mittee wan discharged and the report ac cepted by the executive committee. The Oregon Navigation company is in session. It is understood the dividend will be re duced from 100 to 8 per cent., for the reason that the company's earning capacity does not warrant higher rates. lliiltit of Way. Omaha, Neb., Jan. 4.—Judge Dundy, of the Uaited States court, yesterday, ap pointed W. B. Smyth, of Eeofcuk, receiver of the Hastings & Gr*»d Island railroad. He also granted a temporary injunction restraining the Burlingtoa & Missouri, & Repabliean Tailey ra*ds from cros sing the Uaion Pacific at Grand Islaad until the right of way kts been obtained and the damages as*ariainad. AUSBMMBXim. Last Evening's Performance of "The Silver King"—"A Mountaiu Pink" Next Weak. All things considered, it was quite a good aidienee assembled in the Grand last night to witaesa the performance of the highly entertaining melo-drama, ''The Silver King." It was the breeziest night of the winter, th* mercury was getting in its lace w*rk away down in the twenties, and it required a great deal of serve for the amusement lover to forsake his fire side and brave the bitter weather. Still the audience at the Grand was not meagre, and this in spite of the o*ld and the fact that the play has run almost a week. The latter fact speaks volumes for the drama, as nothing but a good play can run a fall week to even fair andiene<<s in this city. The aotiag of "The Silver Ki»g" last night was fully up to the dramatic re quirements of the characters and the fine scenic effects were very much enjoyed. A final opportunity will be offered to Bee the play at to-day'a matinee, and the engage ment closes with a performance to night. A MOUNTAIN PINK. The sale of seats for the romantic drama, "A Mountain PiDk," to be pre sented next weeK, will commence at the box office of the Grand at 9 o'clock thia morning. In referring to it* presentation in Cin cinnati the Enquirer has the following. "Large audiences greeted 'A Mountain Pink,' atthe Qaeen City, at matinee and evening, yesterday. There is much merit in the play. It is picturesque and roman tic, full of good strong comedy aud unctu ous acting. It is a play that ptease9 all parts of the house, and goes with screams of laughter and good hearty applause, the ourtain being rung up several times on each act, all of which end with strong and fitting climaxes. The oompany is an ex ceptionally good one." COLD WEATHER CH U3l IS, Who Managed to Get Hauled Before the Police Couri Yesterday. "This is a cold and dreary world," re marked hizzoner to Yankee Sui'ivan, as the latter appeared before the throne of justice yesterday morning. "I i-uppose it is," said Yankee, whose mild eye and ema ciated form was on thd verge of dissolu tion and delirium. "A fellow that gets kicked in the ribs by a poliae man, needn't say anything," he continued, "and you can wind me up just as soon as yoa have a mind to." Poor old Yankee, it really seems |as if he had got to the end of his string. He is as thin as a shadow, and yesterday he was on the verge of the jim-jams. He went up for thirty daj3. A. Minard, a corpulent, good-looking fellow, was up on the charge of disorderly; he tackled a man in front of the Mer chants hotel aud kicked a dinner pail out of his hands. The attacked party threw a piece of glass at him, and Minard pulled a knife. It cost him fifteen bills. Gas Peterson was arrested on the charge of "pinching" a watch, but, as there was no evidence to this effect, he was tried for howling on the etreet,and he went over for thirty days. The interminable case of the gay and festive barber, D. Mulligen, charged with attempted rape on a venerable German woman, was again before the court aud after hearing the testimony of one witness it was continued until to-day. THJi COURTS. V. S.

The Rice street grading question seems to resolve itself into this situation. The ; authorities wish to make the street as wide as possible, and grade the sides of the street with slopes, which would, of course, run in back upon the lots and yards to get a graceful line of curvature. For this the property owners ask betterments, which the authorities refuse to accede to, and rather than pay which they will nar row up the street by putting in retaining walls against the lots and assess the property owners on th* street for th* expense of the . same, which will be three-fourths greater expense to said property owners than though the sides; of the street were sloped, 50 per cent., less ornamental to the property and 100 per cent, less"pleasing to the eye. There is danger of the good people on the street standing in their own light in the matter of this improvement as the matter now stands. Another hearing is to be had of the citizens interested by the board, of Dublic works next Friday evening at 7:30 o'clook, when .: it -is to .be hoped the matter will be satisfactorily settled on the part of all concerned. t ■ .
