ST. PAUL BIS. TBrJSPOEiATl WE. Hon- Hie Tripartite Alliance Originated. The origin of the tripartite alliance which has hitherto been shrouded in mys tsry, is becoming known by gradual de ■\elopment. The origin of the alliance is «!lnbuted to E. P. Vining. Ia his depart ment he has the reputation of being one of t ie brightest railroad men in the coun t.;. i.nd at the pgeof twenty-two displayed snch ability that he was made general freight tigent of the Union Pacific. He c mvinced the managers that the interests of tho Union Pacific were suffering for th" want of an eastern connection,which would give it a through system to Chicago. The company became enthusiastic in the scheme, and, after their sup port had been enlisted, Mr. Vining con vinced them that his greatest value to the line wonld be realized if he wa3 placed in charge of the pool, where he could more carPtuliy watch the interests of the Union Pr i:io. The officers set about to put their p,tin.s iato execution, and preparing the ermh of the proposed alliance, submitted them to President Cable, of the Rock 13 land. Iu him was found a ready ally, and the matter was laid before General Mana ger Merrill, of the St. Panl. After slight modifications he consented to subscribe to the contract. After ihe Wabash and the Missouri Pacific were admitted, Mr. Hugh itt declined to go in until certain induce ments were offered in the way of specal privileges for its Sioux City aad Pacific branch.

Ihis is intended to „, ivetrn St. Panl a Fouthwestern connec- \ tion fettering Cedar Rapids. Reports from all the roads yesterday i were to the effect that the weather had moderated a good deal, eo that there was ; much more regularity in their arrival. All were clos6 upon time, except the I. & M., and the River divisions of the Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul road, which were each two hours late. This de lay was owing to the extreme caution m running trains, and not to any difficulty. the Northern Pacific and ,ths St. Paul & Manitoba road have had a pool ing arrangement at four common points — Glyndon, Fargo, Moorhead and Cnseelton. This pooling arrangement has been dis turbed somewhat, if not broken. Rates, however, aro to be maintained the same as heretofore, both parties at present, bein": of the same opinion in this respect, and probably the pool agreement will be re stored. The Thames river, between New Lon don and Groton, is to be spanned by a large railroad bridge to Bupplant the great ferry boat which for years has transferred the Shore Line trains on the route between New York, Providence and Boston. The bridge will be uuilt at tbe joint expense of the New York, New Haven & Hartford and the Providence & Stonington railroads. It will be only two miles below the naval station on the Thames. The bridge will have iron piers, will cost $700,000, and with land damages, approaches, etc., $1, 250,000, of which ths Providence & Ston ington railroad, it is reported, will pay two-thirds. The erection of this bridge will lead to the extension of the Norwich & Worcester division of tho New York & New England railroad from Allyn's Point, the present terminus on the east bank of the Thames, down to Gioton, where there are fine wharfage facilities for the boats connecting for New York.

Chicago, Jan. 7. —The representatives of the Missouri river roads to-day reoeived a telegram from Commissioner Pierson ob jecting to tho proposition for uniform commissions on the through buaino&s from the seaboard to Missouri riv6r points aa proponed, and expressing a desire for the adoption of his proposition that tickets be Rold only by authorized Bgents of the companies. A reply was sent him that his proposition was entirely unacceptable.

Their Exten«iiv<> Operations in St. Paul the Putt Week—Garherinjf In the Shining [ Shekel* —No Coin petition in lousiness. The bursted gas and water pipes in St. Panl the past week were altogether too j numerous to make its citizens go about ; smiling their customary smile, Jack Frost having fixed his congealing fingers not on ly on ail exposed property of this kind, but down deep into the earth and pierced through brick and stone walls, which were thought to be impervious to his attacks, and thereby causing annoyance and ex pease which has been and still continues to be simply excrutiatingly encrmons. All public bniidings have thus been enjoined from aqueous or illuminative supply, while on Monday evening the whole stock of light in the state capitoi was confined to a solitary tallow candle on Governor Hubbard's desk. Froze np and ont in private residences and busiaess blocks can be found as plenty on the door posts on all the streets and avenues as was the blood marks of the avenging angel in Egypt when he brought old Pharoah to temporary terms by slaying its first born. But oh my, while others are groaning in disoomfort and deprivation and at the burdensome expense of Jack's vengeful visitation, there is a party who is rnohing round with lighted alcoholic lamps and bnraing paper from cellar to garret, under pay of eeventy centfl an hour, with whist ling, hand warming hnd flirting with the maids included in the time card, as merry and happy aad joy to! an the maskers at a caraival, aad whose harvest is being gar nered into till more plentifully and easily khan any reaper ever gathered into bag and barn the golden wheat. Oh, ye?, yon might as well take off your hat to the plumber, for what are all the other professions or trades, officials or magnates beside him on this very inaus picious occasion to his victim?, but very auspicious harvest time to him. Oh, happy, lucky plumber, who can play and bask and loll and disport through all tha sunshiny days of the year, and in one stinging cold snap of the winter's solstice, which is al ways as sure to come as the last daj's grace of a bank note, lay in iike the little un.sy bee sufficient store of lucre to start a bank or build a railroad. A. LUiHT DAY. And Consequently the Task oi Judee Burr Wan an Kasy One. Whether it was the coppers' ball that put everybody en their good behavior Monday night, the coldness of the weather or from what cause soever is not kaown, out the fact is a matter of record that not a siagle arrest wa3 made during Monday night. It was the lightest day's work ever done by the police, the ban! of the day only resnlting iu the arrest of one dis orderly aad a couple of warrant cases. Oonsequeatly when hizzoner got onto the perch yesterday hu was c3nfronted oaly by a solitary bummer, Mike Biemer, who was up for raising a row at tho gen eral office of the Northern Pacific railroad office. He had been in the employ of tho com pany and las* Monday he filled up on tau glefoctaad started dowa to collect his wages. Ho went into the building, swag gered around and irieJ to bluff it oui of several different employes and oa becom ing tarbulent he was given tho grand boaoce.

The case was coatia ned until to-d -y. Peter Newgaard keeps a presumably Bnide employment bureau on Seventh near Kuriibel street. He is one of iha gentry who furui&h laboring men with soft snaps on the payment of high fees. He was bo fore the conn", yesterday oa the complaint of a working man named Emil Mul^rc-.-;. whom he is charged with swindling out of a fee of $3 50. 'Ihe hearing will take place to-day. At 2 o'clock Wm. Devin and Thomas Horan were arraigned on complaint of Heary Coraack, the charge being the larceny of several articles of jewelry. Cornack at firet claimed that he was re lieved of a watch, chain, charm and ring in Horan's saloon, but when the case was called he said he had learned that the articles had been taken merely as a joke and for that reason he did not want to prosecute. This being the case, the court said he would continue the case until this morning when the joke could be explained, defendants being re leased on their own recognizance. XHJfl COURTS. Supreme Court.

CONGRESSIONAL. A BUST DAT IN BOTH HOUSES TES- j TERDAT. The Senate JJujj».:,-«tl ia a Discussion of the Ameuclmeui-< to the Kules—A Large Grist of Bills Introduced ia the liou.-e —Proposed Amcatlmi-iits to tho Consti tutioa, Uie Setmte. Washington, Jan. 8. —A resolution by Senator Hale was agreed to as follows: Resolved, That that secretary of the the navy be directed to inform tbe senate what was the original cost of vessels whose names are found in the naval register for the year 1883, under the bureau of construction and repair of the steam engineerinz, equipment and re •ruiting, together with the total expense of repairing Binoe their construction under the same bureaus or otherwise. Ssnator YanWyck presented a pream ble and resolution setting forth that it is asserted by the New Orleans Pacific Rail road company that as the attorney general decided in favor of the company as to lands claimed by them and the secrecary of the interior felt constraiaed to act upon the opinion; Resolved, That until congress at this ses sioa determine the questions involved the secretary of the iaterior to suspead action as to the- issuing certificates or pateati for laad. Placed on the caleader to be called up to-morrow. The senate resumed ooasideratioa of the new rules. A considerable debate arose upon the proposed rule which relates to appropria tioa bills. Seaator Beck maiotaiaed the impor taaca of retaiaiag aii matters of appro priatioa in the hands of the committee oa appropriations. Ia tho coarse of his re marks he said, there was aot a first class grocery or dry goods house ia the conatry that woald carry oa its business as it is carried on in the treasury department. Seaator Edmunds thought, it would be decidedly injurious to induce the people to give to committees having charge of special departments of the goverameat the right to say how much shonld ba ap propriated to those special departments. The result of such a course w.i-iid be an enormous increase in the expenies of tne government. ( Senator Plumb proposed an amendi providing for the submission of an appro priation bill for each deparf"-nt to the committee representing thac ... ,>artinenc and requiring thti committees to report back within awtt. 1-:. Senator Miller, of New York spoke of the growing importance of the agricul tural burean aad thought the committee on agriculture should novo something to r-ay ooucoiniog the amount 10 be appro priated far it. He referred ta the exclu sion of American pork from tha market? of France and Gsrmaay. One of tho rea sons given for the exclusion wr.s the absence of government inspection ia this country. If soma action is not taken on this subject, a large proportioa of th9 farmers ia this coaatry will have to change th'-ir iaiinslry. Seudtor li.ile moved to strike from the propped role x\i\< clause which had caused the uircassion. Senator Sawyer offered a resolution, which was agreed to, caUing on the seett tary of war for information as to whftt !egi-lation was necessary for the imme d mte carrying cut of the* provision con tained in the appropriation already made for the improvement of the Fox and Wis «.iij>i!j rivers. Senator Miller, Califoraia, offered a res olution winch was agreed to, reqacsting the president to furnish the senate with copies of tho correspondence relating to any aegotiatioa with the Spanish govern ment on the subject cf discriminating duties on the commerce between the United States at d Oaba aad Porto Rioo.

Messages from the president were laid before the senate relating to tho Illinois and Michigan canal, aad the work done by the Mississippi river coiami^sioa. Pending the discussioa oa the rale?, the senate went iato executive session aud shortly after adjourned. House of Representatives.

"A Mountain PiiiL"sacceisfui!y Rendered a Second Time—"iho Romtuiy Jr.'yv ." The Grand Opera house ccataiarid a good sized and very appreciative audience l3st a'ght to witness the second perforrnaace of the drama "A Mountain Pink." The more one sees of this play tha bettor ;: ia liked, especially with regard to the imper sonation of Miss Dainty. Tho name of this little lady has loc^ since bem fnmilinr fo the public in connection with her art as a dramatic reader and elocu tionist, but her dabut on tho Btage as an actress was made only a few months ago. The failure of Anna Dickiasoa aad other noted readers to succeed in this direction has established the belief that mere elocu tionary powers, however high of their kind, are no gaaranteo that th& possessor can sucoeed in the dramatic profession, bnt, oa the coatrary, with regard to Miss Daiaty this opiaion does not hold, for she has taken to the drama like oae to the maaner born. Her impersonation of Siacerity Weeks in '\A Moaatain Pink"- ia a daiaty bit of well-rounded aad evenly-sustained aoting throughout, and it is a forcible re minder of the iight-footed Lotta or merry little Maggie Mitchell, beiag scarce ly inferior to the charac ters of these charming women. Th» p lay was well enacted last evening throughout, and seemed to meet the hearty approval of tho audience. There will be a matinee performance this afternoon and the eDgagemeat closes to-night. A Ilea of Marl. There are some indications that Hon. Clark W. Thompson has struck a first cousin to a gold mice, or something equiv alent thereto. At present he is unwilling to say much about it, inasmuch as there is so much uncertainty about it. This dis covery, which promises to be so valuable, consists of what is supposed to be au im mense bed of marl, on his farm, at Wells. Complete explorations have not been made, so that np to the present time they c mnot tell how much there is of it.

The Fate Which Overtook ihe "City of Boston'*—Captain Murraj '» Idr&s and .Ex periences. A few years ago the City of Boston sailed from the harbor, crowded with an expec tant throng of passeagerd bound for a foreign shore. She never entered port. Tne mystery of her untimely end dteper as the years increase, and the At lantic voyager, when the fierce winds howl around and danger is imminent on every hand, shudder as the name and myste rious fate of that magnificent vessel ara al luded to. Onr reporter, on a roc-?nt virifc to New York, took lunch with Captain George Sid dons Murray, on board the Alaska, of tho Guion lino. Captain Murray is a man of stalwart build, well-knit frame, and cheery, genial disposition. He has been a con stant voyager for a quarter of a century. over half of that ' time having beea in the trans-Atlantic service. In the course of the conversation over the well spread table, the mystery of the City of Boston was alluded to. "Yes," remarked the captain, '•! 6hail never forget the last night we saw that ill fated vessel. I was chief officer of the City of Antwerp. On the day we sighted the City of Boston a furious south east hurricane set in. Both vessels labored hard. The sea seemed determined to sweep away every vestige of life. When the d*y ended th^; gale did not abate, and everything was lashed for a night of un usual fury. Our good ship was turned to the south to avoid the possibility of ice bergs. The City of Boston, however, un doubtedly went to the north. Her boats, life preserver and rafts were all securely lashed; and when Bhe went down every thing went with her, never to appear until the sea gives up its dead." "What, in your opinion, oaptais, was tho cause of the los3 of the City of Bos ton:" "Tho City of Limerick, in almost pre cisely the same latitude a few days later, found the sea full of iloating ice, and I !:".tj m, doubt the City of Boston collided with the ice and sunk immediately." Captain Murray has been in command of the Alaska over since she was put in commission and feels justly proud of his noble ship. She carries thousands < f passengers every year, and hnf> greatly popularized the Williams & G ion line. Remarking upon the bronzed and h< appearance o: the captain, tho reporter said i',. fo did not seem to very grea ial. "No? But a person's ap i not always a trustworthy indication a! condition. For Beven years I been in many teepee Is very much out irts with myself. At certain times I w h so lame that it was difficult for mo to m ;ve around. I could scarcely str;:ii;ht'. a np. I did not know what the trouble was, and though I performed all my duties reg ularly and satisfactorily, yet I felt lh;-u i might some day be overtaken with sirce serious prostrating disorder. These trouti les increased. I,felt dull and then, again, shooting pain3 through my arms aad limbs. Possibly the next day I would feel flushed and uaaccouatably uneasy end the day following chilly and despondent. This continued until last December, when I was prostrated soon after leaving Qaeenstown, Hnd for the remainder ef the voyage was a helpless, pitiful sufferer. In January last a friend who made that voy age with mo wrote me a letter urging mo to try a new course of treatment. I glad ly accepted hi3 counsel, ar.d for the laht soven months have given thorough and busiui'ss-liko attention to tho recovery of my natural health; and to-day i have the proud satisfaction of saying to you th*t the lame back, the strange i ia rheumatism which have su pursued me, have entirely disappeared through the blood-purifying influei Warner's Safe Rheumatic Cure, which rn- Hrely eradicated fill rheumatic poison from my system. Indeed, to a that it has worked wonders, and 1 the. most cordially commend it." "And yon have uo trou ing yoorself to the wind* ol "N it the lenst. I -im as Bound rn a bullet and 1 feel specially thankful <■ e I believe rheumatic aud b o is in tho blood of my family. 1 was dreadfully shocked on my last arrivni in Liverpool to leara that my brother, who is a wealthy China tea merchant, had sud denly died of Bright'* disease of the kid neys, aad consider royseif extremely fortunate ia having taken my trouble in time aad before aay moro serious effects were possible." The coaversation drifted to other topics, and as the writer watched the face before him, so strong in all its outlines aud yet so genial, and thought of the innumerable exposures and hardships to which its own er bad been exposed, he mstiaotively wished all who are sufforiag from the ter rible rheumatio troubles now so common might know of Captain Murray's experi ence and the meaas by which he had been restored. Paia is a common thing ia this world, but far too many endure it when they might jusr ub well avoid it. It is a false philosophy which teaches us to en dure when we can jnst as readily avoid. So thought the hearty captain cf the Alaska, so thinks the writer and so should all oth ers think who desire happiness and long life. Applied lor a Divorce. Gertrude \. M.
