It Enjoys too Many Privileges and Wants
too Much Money— Electrical Detec-
Miscellaneous Railway 'N*te» at
Home and Abroad.
The C. P. E.
I Manitoba Free Press, 28. J
The Free Prc^bas always contended that
the O. P. R. contract was none too favor
able to the syndicate. The logic of events
has proved that we were not in error. The
company is at present in the position of
not being able to carry on work without
farther assistance.
Such assistance must be forthcoming.
It would be disastrous in the extreme, not
only to the northwest but to the Dominion
at large, were the work now to come to a
stand-still. The opening up of the coun
try iB essential to the very life of the con
federation. Enormous liabilities have
been already incurred which the
development of the northwest
alone can enable Canada to
bear. The building of the road and its
branches must be continued; and that work
can be more cheaply and more act on
ly done by a company than by the govern
ment. The extension of the Southwestern,
for instance, which the company have in
contemplation for next season, is a matter
of the most vital importance to the wel
fare of one of the largest and most popu
lous sections of the northwest and prob
ably the finest agricultural district in
Canada. To disappoint the residents of
this district, who went there depending
on the early construction of this road, and
have waited in patient expectation, would
in itself, be a most serious matter. The
whole people of this country have acquired
vested interests under the promises held
out in connection with the ' Canadian Pa
cific railroad, and it would be a breach of
national faith to allow them to suffer
through the inability of the company to
carry out its undertakings.
We believe that the people of Canada
will look at the matter in this light; and
that, having put their hands to the plough
for the purpose of opening up the north
west, they will not turn back. The ques
tion, then, bo far ac they are concerned,
we are convinced, will be, not shall we
further assist the C. P. It., but how
can we most effectively-assist it in the in
terests of the Dominion? If this question
be carefully pondered the answer to it will
be found to be— by making such advances
as may be necessary for the work, on con
dition that all claims in the way of mon
opoly shall be given up at once and for
ever by the company. This is the one
way out of the present difficulty by which
all parties, the Dominion, the Northwest
and ths Canadian Pacific railroad, may
escape creditably and profitably. There
should be no hesitation in following it.
It iB asserted that even had the C. P. R.
bo monopoly, competing roads could not
and would not be built by private capi
tal. If this be correct, it follows that the
monopoly is of no benefit to the C. P. R.
It cannot be contended that it has not al
ready done great injury to the oountry,
and hence to them,sinoe their interests are
bound up in the country. They should
not hesitate, therefore, about giving it up
for a fair consideration. The people of the
northwest are unanimously of the opinion
that they are deeply wronged
by being deprived of the
light to charter local railways where
they please. An agitation has sprung up
in consequence, and will without doubt be
continued until all restrictions are re
moved, The feeling which gave rise to this
agitation, and still more the agitation it
self, have created a prejudice against the
northwest in emigration centers, and any
considerable influx of settlers under exist
ing circumstances is not to be anticipated.
It is absolutely essential, therefore, to
our furthei progress and prosperity, that
monopoly should be done away with. So
firmly convinced of this are the people of
this oountry, that we feel justified m say
ing that they will not for any length of
time submit to it. They are at present
anxiously watching the course of the gov
ernment, in the hope that it may be suffi
ciently well advised to perceive the neces
sity for making satisfactory arrangements
of some kind with the company. Should
they be disappointed theie is little doubt
that the government, and not improbably
the company as well, will have reason to
xe«rret having disregarded their wishes.
Oar conservative namesake, the Lon
don Free Press, finds a justification for the
making of further advances to the C. P.
B. in the fact that "In days gone by the
Grand Trunk got $16,000,000 as
an advance, which the oountry has
"never had occasion to regret, though it
"has never been repaid. The Inter
colonial has cost us about $40,000,000,
"and the money is known to be well in
"vested in promoting intercourse, in im
"proving trade, and in forming a strong
"and long link in the great Canadian
"transcontinental line." Our contem
porary hits the nail on the head in men
tioning that these advances have not
been repaid. Whatever the C. P. R.
now gets as a loan, or whatever other
name may be given to it, will also in
reality be a gift. This being the case,
the oountry should at once secure all that
it can as a quid pro quo for any conces
sions it may be found necessary to make.
If the governmernt decides on advancing
to the company the amount necessary for
the carrying on of their work, as we be
lieve they will, they should, therefore, take
an assignment of the monopoly in prefer
ence to any mortgage or other securities
that may be offered.
We say once more, then, to both the gov
ernment and the Canadian Pacific Railroad
company, that if they make any new
arrangement under which the present
monopoly is to be continued, without tak
ing into consideration the requirements of
the now thoroughly aroused people of the
northwest, they will find to their sorrow in
the near future that they have reckoned
without their host.
A Meclumical Detective.
A meohaioal contrivance, invented by a
Methodist minister, and now in r.se on the
railroads centering in Scranton, Pa., fo
the purpose of cheeking the manner in
which freight trains are run by the em
ployes, has reoently attracted a good deal
of attention and been vigorously denounc
ed by railroad men. The claim is made
by the employers that some such thing
was necessary to prevent the deceptions
practiced upon the companies by
the crews running freight and
ooal trains faster than schedule
time to make np for the unnecessary
delays at the various stations. The offi
cials allege that, no matter how faithfully
a condnctor and engineer might promise
not to run faster than fifteen miles an
hoar, there are times when they will disre
gard all obligations and run as fast as
thirty miles an hour to make np for time
spent With their cronies at some of the
stations along the line. The invention al
luded to renders it impossible for railroad
men to practice any such deception. It is
a simple piece of mechanism constructed
much on the principle of tbe "tape" that
checks off the condition of the
stock market. It is wound np
like a clock, locked within a box,
and placed in the caboose, where it is
geared to'< he axle of the car. On a large
sheet of stiff paper marked into small
squares a pencil or tracer keeps moving
with the train and records the revolutions
of the axle, the delay made at any given
point, the number of jolts and jars sus
tained on the trip and where they occurred,
together with other facts going to make
up an accurate record of the journey. The
record is laid before the superintendent,
who sees at a glance how any particular
train was run, and acts accordingly. It is
claimed on the part of the companies
that the irregularity of running coal
and freight trains, and the "soldiering" of
the men at the stations, as well as their
method of making up for lost time, have
in the past been prolific of many serious
accidents, resulting in much loss to rail
road property in wreckage, as well as in
wear and tear. With tho "tattling machine"
at work in the caboose, recording every
throb of the locomotive with the precision
of a shorthand reporter, this will be im
possible. But the "tattler" is not liked by
railroad men. They consider it not only
a nuisance, but a blunt warning on the
part of the companies that their men are
untrustworthy and cannot be relied upon.

in regard to the matter. The roads
in the United States find it difficult to set

the Northern Pacific road there is nothing
new, more than the fact that a circular
has been prepared in New York and

Hannaford general freight agent, in place
of John Muir, resigned; C. S. Fee, general
passenger agent in charge of the passenger
and ticket departments ; H. C. Davis, as

to the assistant ticket agent no appoint

that Mr. S. F. Boyd has been tendered the

and Paid Their Respects to Judge Burr.
"The docket shows that Clerk Fairohild
has got back," said Bailiff Clouse to the
reporter yesterday, in speaking of the
sudden boom in the volume of police
court business.
"You don't mean to say that Frank is a
hoo-doo, do you queried the scribe.
"Well it looks like it," said the bailiff,
and he was about to enter into a disquisi
tion on the subject when the old man
brought down his gavel and then the per
formance commenced.
Among the first candidates for honor
was the venerable ruin Hannah Welch ; she
had been full again and a copper had run
her in as usual. When brought
into the pen she said,
"Your worship I was feeling weak and

return to Minneapolis." The court said it
was too thin to laundry and she went up
for ninety days.
Mike Collins is a howling Piute when
full, and he gets full pretty often. Mon
day night he was collared at Seven comers
on the verge of the jimjams. Yesterday
he was fined ten bills.
Louis Troy is quite an industrious young
sneak thief. Last Sunday he went through
a hash foundry on East State street and
cabbaged a lot of clothing belonging to a
boarder named Elmer Gray. Yesterday
he was held to the grand jury and commit

Chas. Held and John Cars met by
chance in a beer joint Monday night, and
quaffed sundry bowls of the flowing nectar
After a while they engaged in a dispute
concerning the payment of a schooner of
beer, 5 cents, and Held proceeded to polish
off his chance acquaintance. When he
thought he had taken five cents worth of
fun out of him he stopped. Yesterday
the comrt looked at the bloody mug of
Cass and he thought the damage thereto
was worth $20. Held paid the coin.
Chas. Harris, who went on a hurrah and
fired his revolver off just for fun, was
fined $5 and the weapon was confiscated.

State of Minnesota, V
Executive Office, I
St. Paul, Jan. 25, 1884. }
Elias Stienerson, Esq., Fisher, Polk Co.,
Minn: ~
Dear Sir: Your name appears first in
order upon the first of many petitions
lately received, asking that the legislature
of the state be called together in extra ses
sion, to consider the matter presented in
regard to the grading,shipment and trans
portation of wheat. It is to yon, therefore,
that I address this reply, published for the
information of all the signers, giving some
of the reasons which lead me to the con
clusion that it is not best to convene the
I do not doubt that there exist grounds
for complaint on the part of the growers
of grain in a considerable part of the state
against the prevailing rules and practices
in grading, buying and transporting their
products. lam not now for the first time
convinced that there is danger that those
who control the operations of great rail
roads, intent first and chiefly on subserv
ing the interests of their stockholders by
the economical and effective management
of their gigantic agencies, would be found
less prompt in observing that some of their
rules were burdensome upon the mass
of the people, than that they were con
venient and profitable to themselves
and the small minority of the people
who deal with them in large, frequent and
easily regulated shipping contracts. Re
oent experiences have made it painfully
evident that the uncertainties and vari
ableness of grading imposes frequent
losses upon those who sell grain, and
creates a belief of losses, perhaps more
frequent and greater than actually exist.
I believe that legislation can do much to
remove just complaints on the ground
of monopoly in buying, extortion in
transportation, or inequality in grading,
yet I doubt if the relief desired could
best be obtained from the present legisla
ture. In my message to that body
one year ago, 1 earnestly recom
mended the adoption of "a evstem of
state inspection which should comprehend
the fixing of grades of grain, and the
adoption of rules regulating the manage
ment of elevators and warehouses;" and,
also, strongly urged upon its attention the
necessity of some "legislative action im
posing restraints upon the management of
railroads." Both branches of the legisla
ture had both these questions before them.
Bills were introduced for legislation simi
lar to that which the petitioners now seek.
They were considered by committees of
both houses; both houses came to the con
clusion that no action was advisable. A
recall of this legislature to perfect such
legislation might be interpreted to imply
a censure of their former judgment, and
possibly be regarded as an attempt at co
ercion of the legislative discretion by a co
ordinate branch of the government. But
such is the oondition of the finances of the
state, owing to the extraordinary demands
upon its treasury, from the necessary re
building of it& capitol and those parts of
its hospitals for the insane and the reform
school destroyed by fire, the expenses of
the extra session of 1881 and the impeach
ment trial following, that I doubt if I
would be justified in imposing upon the
taxpayers of the state the burden of the
cost of an extra session of the legislature,
even if these subjects had not already oc
cupied the attention of that body.
The evils co!nplainea of, though under
stood by the agriculturalists of the whole
state are now most keenly lelt only in por
tions, along certain lines of railway. Even
there the damage will have been mostly
done, the crop nearly marketed, and the
losses suffered, before legislation could be
come effectual.
A new house of representatives will be
eleoted next November. It may be chosen
if the electors please, with reference to
these questions. It will convene with the
senate the first of next January.
To that legislature I shall as
suredly recommend the enactment of laws
that will secure at every station a market
open and unrestricted; shipment and
transportation for any and all without dis
crimination; and the establishment and
maintenance within the state of a uniform
and unchanging standard of grading. The
intervening time will not be too long for
those who may have the duty of legisla
tion before them, to study the problems
what to do and how to do it, and to direct
public sentiment to an agreement upon a
solution so reasonable and practical that
no interest can hope to obstruct or evade it.
Yours very truly,

dier during the late war. When I entered
the army I was a young man of good mor
al character, belonged to the church and
attended Sunday school regular.
But now _ after serving my
country I have contracted bad
habits, will now sware and steal, in fact I
am ruined morally. What I want to know,
am I entitled to a pension for loss of
moral character? I hold that the govern
ment is bound to return its soldiers in as
good a condition as it received them mor

man to associate with guard house bum
mers, mule drivers and officers as long as I
did without loosing his moral character.

The motion for dismissal by defendant
of the , action brought by Frances L.
Walker from her husband Jame.s J. Walker,
on charge of adultery, was granted by
Judge Brill at the conclusion of the hear
ing of the case yesterday, on the ground
that the parties were non-residents of
Ramsey county, and were properly subject
to the courts of Winona county in such an
action. It is said that on the conclusion
of the trial the defendant had papers
served on the plaintiff before she could
again get across the line into the state of
Wisconsin, where she has really been resi
