There i- a wpUyilirnod and concerted move ment on foot in this city to displace the new pump in the water works, invented b/ James Waters, which has been christened Jumbo, for some other style of pump which possesses not one point superior to it, and -which will cost iminy times more money. To explain the ori gin and reafaon of this movement would bo a difficult task. It is stated that it is simply an outgrowth of i, personal animosity toward the inventor on the part of Mr. Manzel and others of the faction who are leading the tight. Whether this bo true or not matters little. The impera tive necessity of a largely increased pumping capacity at the West side station, and the speedy construction of a pump to be placed in the East side station is felt by all property own era. Over one-half of our city is now without adequate protection against the usages of a conflagration which is liable to occ:r at any time, and an unnecessary delay in pro viding our city with that protection would be a serious dereliction on the part of the authorities having I he matter directly in; charge. Mr. aieazel prepared a long-winded report up on the pump, alleging every conceivable weak ness, and recommending the adoption of some other system of pumps, bat he failed to state what pump is superior to Jumbo, and gentlemen who understand thoroughly the question they treat, made pointed and decisive reply to Mr. Menzel, exploding all his theories, proving con clusively the fallaciousness of his every specu lation, and demonstrating the absolute value of tho pump, not only as a medium for supplying our city with water for domestic &cd manufacturing purposes, but as an efficient and reliable protection against de structive fires. Kitting the actual results of the two tests of the pump which have baen conduct ed, tho single adverse conclusion remains that the motive power is not sufficient to run the pu np at its fullest capacity, while the present low stage of water in the river exists. Is that a fault of the pump ! It has been shown that no other pump could be run to better advantage with tho turbine water wheel which drives Jumbo. Then is it consistent to attach any blame to this pump? Any sensible man would deduct tho conclusion that a larger wheel should be em ployed. This is the question of paramount im portance to our city, and therefore one which tshould be considered rationally. At tho last meeting of the water board con- j tracts were awarded for tha manufacture of two more pumps of this pattern, one to bo placed in the West side station and one in the East side station, the latter to supply water to a district which is nearly destitute, ouly bo ing furnished with water through tho one main crossing tha rivar on the bad of the river, and liable to a break at any time, especially under firo pressure. This contract has been handed to our comptroller to receive his signature, as a matter of more conventional form, but ho pnr emptorily refuses to sign, He says he can find no record that in*; board over considered or au thorized tlie execution of tho contract. Verily, this is peculiar. The writer was present at the meeting when (ho resolution was intro duced by Commissioner Grimshaw, authorizing tho exocution of the contract with Strothman ! Brothers, which resolution was adopted upon the following vtte: Ayos—Ames, Grimshaw and Davis—3. —Brown and Footo—2. So does our mogul, his highneis, the comp troller, figure as an obstructionist. The last objection raised in the war waged against Jumbo is that it has not a 10,000,000 capacity. This despite the fact that it has pumped in excess of that amount. The pump is de signed to pump 6,000,000 of water for domestic purpose -, when Only three of the plungers are ■ allowed to run. But during the prevalence of a fire all five of tho plungers are set at work and the desired capacity is secured, MINNEAPOLIS GLOISET.EXS. The city connoil will meet on Wednes day evening.

The Scandinavian Temperance society held a large meeting last evening at Har rison hall and listened to an address from Mrs. Anderson. Bo3e & Hick's drug store, at the corner of Franklin an Sixteenth avenue, waa. de stroyed by fire. The loss is estimated at $2,000, and was partially insured. The salaries paid to the teachers and janitors of the public schools last Satur day aggregated $14,000 a sum equal to Prof. Tangier's salary for 1,000 days.

John O3p, a maimed man residing at; 109 Thirteenth avenue south, and em- j ployed by M. W. Glenn, was found on the J street last evening in almost a nude state, and showing unmistakable symptoms of insanity. He was placed in the lock up by Officer Van Ness. This evening at the Grand Clara Morris will be seen at her greatest in "Article 47," from tho pen of Adolph Bslot. Every seat! is sold, but those who have not seen this famous exponent of histrionic art can se-; cure tickets by making an early applica tion, for Wednesday evening, when Magda len will be produced. The gas escaping from the basement of the district court building into the offices in the new extension is very annoying to the officials occupying them. Some con trivance should be devised to convey the ; gas from the basement, and the matter de serves the serious consideration of the county commissioners. At midnight a fire broke out in the ' sec ond story of a frame building, Nos. 723 and 725 Washington avenue north, owned by A. F. Converse. Everything is a total loss. Mr. Martin estimates his loss at $2,000; insured for $1,400 with companies represented by J. G. MoFarland. One portion of tho building was occupied by Robert Martin &a a saloon, but owning to his absence it was impossible to arrive at, the exf.ct lose, which will probably aggregate $2,500; partially insured. He lived in the second story, and hia house hold goods were all destroyed. W. J. Slyfield occupied the balance of the build ing as a confectionery and cigar store and residence. He saved nothing and gives his loss as $700; upon which he had an insurance of $200 in the London Fire In surance company. An explosion occurred in the portion of the building occupied by Martin during the progress of the fire. Martin's insurance was placed in compa cie3 represented by Gale & Co. Mi?s Corson will begin a special course in cooking at Market hall to-day. There are two separate and distinct courses, con sisting of fiix lesaon3 each. The forenoon lessons will be exclusively given to the cooking of fancy dishes and the afternoon lessons to plain cooking. She wiil unques tionably draw large audiences during the week. Mrs. Anderson, in her talk before tha Scandinavian Temperance club last even ing, said that the prohibitionists were on the eve of a great victor, in Minneapolis. Six years ago only six votes for prohibi tion were cast in the Sixth ward for a can didate who wns dubbed a fool and a I fanatic. At the coming spring election she expected the same ward to cast a big vote for the prohibition candidate. She proudly referred to Ohio, where at the last election 323,000 votes were cast for prohibition and only 100.000 in favor of licensing the liquor traffic. To the ladies in that state was due the great viotory. They ihad prayed and worked for ten years and during the last campaign distributed every week 40, --000 copies of the prohibition organ, send ing it free into the households of the state. She believed in total abstinence for the in dividual ahd prohibition for the state and nation. Th», friiHS Club. » The attendance of the regular meeting of the Minneapolis Press club held yester day, was general, and the session proved one of the most interesting since its insti tution. President Palmer occupied the chair, and the report of Treasurer Nind shows nearly $100 in the treasury after defraying all outstanding indebtedness. C. S. Bartram, chairman of the committee on entertainments, read a letter from Mi 33 E. H. Ober, of the Uoj ton Ideal Opera company expressing her pleasure in contributing to the concert to be given by the club during April. She was not prepared, however, to state wheth er or not her entire oompany would be bo situated that they could participate, yet there is little doubt of that end. Mr. Bartram suggested that Prof. Dane's full orchestra be secured for the occasion, and that matter was placed in the hands of the committee. W. C. Whiteman read an articlo u}.on American journalism, which was replete with thoughts of special interest to tho members of the club. It ur^sd that tho most valuable news was of a sensational character, but liot of an immoral tone and that the journals who made a special feat ure of sensational productions wera the successful journals of the day, aud many pertinent instances were cited. The article elicited a spirited discussion which was continued at some length, and eaoh member of the club ventilated his especial view. The question of publishing editorial matter to the exclusion of news was treat ed. Mr. Nind believed that the average reader oared little for editorial. Mr. Bartram and Mr. Pixon sustainod that the ory, while Messrs. Dv Bois, Whiteman and Vail advooated the reverse, claiming that the public sentiment is moulded by edito rial writers of the daily pres3, and that the intelligent reader turned to the editorial page in pref erence to any other in a well regnlated and able journal. Mr. Wallahac dispar aged the old time custom of writing again ii space—grinding out just so maDy thousand words of dry editorial per day, whether there were live and interesting topics to be presented or treated or not. A motion was adopted inviting Mr. Carle, of St. Paul, to deliver a lecture or present a paper at the next moettng of the ciub, when an adjournment was had. Northern Pacific Preferred SlocJc. During the recent raid in stock we purchased ICO shares Northern Pacific preferred 6tock whicli is sonvertible into land at bottom prices, and we will sell it out in small lots at reason able prices. 8.

In the absence of a pro gramme, extemporaneous addresses were delivered by several members of the league, including the president, and Mr. McHale reoited one of Moore's poems in tho Irish language. Messrs. Donnhne and Shadrick paid a tribute to the memory of Wendell Phillips, and on motion a com mitte consisting of Messrs. Shadrick, Gal lagher, Donahue, MoPartland and Vail was appointed to draft resolutions in honor of the departed orator, whose elo quent tongue was bo often used in advo cating the rights of Ireland.

Ancient Ruins in the Oreat Kanntcha Val ley—Recent Excavations of Prof. P. W. Xorris. [Toledo Blade. 1 Prof. P. W, Norris,. who ha 3 just got through with his excavations of ancient mounds in the Kanawha valley, called at the Blade office the other day and told something of his interesting work. The professor was formerly superintendent of the Yellowstone park, but at present he is assistant United States ethnologist. He has been engaged in the West Vir ginia excavations since last August. Com mencing his explorations near the city of Charleston, in the Kanawha valley, he traced out th 9 ruins of an ancient city five miles in extent. This prehistoric city occupied both sides of the river, its upper extremities reaching within two niiles of tha mouth of the Elk river, which empties into the Great Kanawha at Charlestown, and its lower extremity bo ing seven miles below the Elk. Seven of the mounds which he opened were from twenty to thirty-five feet in height and from 300 to 540 feet in circum ference at the base. Near these he opened about forty smaller ones. Altogether he opened fifty-six in the valley. It may be well to add her ,b3fora|particulanzing,that the aggregate collections from these mounds amounted to over 4,000 fine speci mens, which are intended for tho National museum at Washington. These consisted principally of about thirty specimens of steatite and sand stone pottery and pipes, many lance arrow head 3. hatahets fish darts, celts, gorgets, and various other kinds of things; hematite iron paint hatchets, and paint cups; several hundred pieces of shell money; bone and hora punches used for dressing the flint arrow-heads in proper snaps; twenty-one bracelets, evidently ! rnadu from Lake Superior copper; one I ooppfr gorget (breast-plate), copper crowns, and many copper heads. All of the copper was heavily coated with verdi gris. Indeed, from the oopper crown, breast-plate, and bracelets on one of the ekelaois which the professor exhumed "»he end of the bark coffin had become so coated with verdigris as to mislead many into the belief that the coffin had been copper-pleted, and so some of .the West Virginia newspapers reported it; but the professor want 3it distinctly understood that he authorizes no such statements. In a monad thirty-five feet high and 545 feet around its base was avaulttwelv* feet square and ten feet high, the walla of whiob had been supported by black walnut timbers, some of tha timber as muck as twelve inches in diameter. In the cer.'re of this vault, lying horizontally on its back, was a giant skeleton sevgn feet six inches long, and measuring nineteen inches through the breast, under the arms. The arms were extended by its Bide. On each wrist were six large copper bracelets, four of which had b«en enclosed in cloth or dressed skin. Tha fact that these bracelets were so deeply encrusted with verdigris, and that the decay of the enwrapping material had been so great, made it im possible for the eye of science to distin guish with certainty as to whether this in closing material was dressed skin or cloth. Under the skull was a stone lance head. There waa a copper gorget upon the breast, with two holes in it. TMb gorget, which is foar inches square, is regarded by the professor as having been a badge of authority. Lying on the left Bhoalder were three blocks cf iMnglups 7x9 inches on thf surface ani nearly one inch thick. The weight of these, had ao crashed iv the shoulder that it was impossible to get an accurate measure across from shoulder to shoulder. H=nee tha necessity of measur ing through the breas-, under the arms, as above stated. la the right hand was an hematite hatchet, having a four inch blade. This hatchet was withoat an eye for a handle. In the left hand were several lance headp, six inches in length, of fine flint manufacture. Leaning backward in a dark coffin, which stood somewhat slantiDg from a perpendicular position, was aaother skele ton, in suoh a position in relation to the first as to let the left hand extend over its head. On this left hand, thus extended over the giant't? he^d, were too copper bracelets. And in the right hand were a bunch of lanoe-heads similar to those of the giant. Ia each corner of thi9 solemn vault was a warrior inclosed m his bark coffin, and standing nearly erect with a stone hatchet, not grosved. and lance?, in or near hia hands. Nearly 100 various specimens of arm 3 and ornaments were found in thi3 one vault. The falling in of this vanlt caused a depression or hole ou th 6 top of the mound. In this depression a subsequent race—the dose-work build ers or modern Indians—have placed a stone coffin, seven feet in diameter and four feet high. In this stone coffin war disoovered a much decayed skeleton and some very rude stone weapong. In another mound, two miles above, and nearly the same size as the last described one, were found two skeletons, with rude weapons. This was very near the top of the mound. Then there were about thirty feet of earth similar to dry mortar, so hard as to require picks for excavating it. This hard earth extended down to the nat ural surface of the ground. Bat here was made the most wonderful discovery of all. Quite a number of the people from that vicinity happened to bs present at this su preme moment, says the professor, and among them the Hon. John E. Kenna, United States senator irom West Virginia. The remains of a large sized war rior was found lying flat on hia baok, with a copper crown cover ing his head and neok, ornamented with seashell and bone head 3. On one side of this warrior lay five others with their feet all pointing towards him, while on the other side were five women, as indicated by their size and ornaments, also having their feet pointed towards the central war rior. About these skelfctoas were found various weapons and ornaments. At tho head of each oistern were double cisterns, cemented, and containing more or less water. These cisterns were of different diameters, but averaged about foar feet in depth. The nature of this sepulchre seems to have been so different from any other yet discovered that the professor sa^ ■ that, were it not for the fact of as many reliable witne.-sas having been present, he would hesitate to publish it. The question naturally ocoura, How earne these ten skeletons there, five ot them male and five female, all evidently buried at the same time with the chief f Could they have been entombed alive? Then these ten csmented double cisterns at tho head of each skeleton—for what purpose were they made? Each of them contained more or less water ; can it be that this water has been pent up in this old ancient mound for ages ? Yet how otherwise? For thirty feet above and more than that dis tance around this spot there was hard earth, "dry like mortar," which had to be excavated with picks. It could net have seeped up through the natural ground be neath, for the cisterns were well cemented. This is known in the Kanawha Valley as the Oreel Mound, and is on Col. Ben. Smith's farm. Another mound, two miles below the Smith farm, and on what is called the Poor farm, in Kanawha county, is 306 feet in circumference and twenty-five feet high. The top of this (moand is a small, flat plane, forty feet in diameter. Its top and Bides to a depth of about two feet was covered with the natural soil. The entire remainder of the mound was ashes which had been burned until they were very fine and heavy. However, these ashes had all been deposited in bark vessels, containing about one-half a bushel each. About the centre of the mound were two large skele tons, in a sitting posture, facing each other, with one leg of each between those of the other, and their hands extended, palms upward,towards one another. Rsst mg upon their hands was a curious altar made of stone. This altar consisted of a bowl shaped stone about two feet in diam eter, the concave side np, and filled with ashes. On its top was a flat stone cover, with two hole 3in it, and having on it the ancient totem marks. But what good now to no, who cannot interpret; it, the mystic language of the totem mark? Down, even with the natural surface of tho ground, in this mound, was found immense Blight ly concave altar. The center of this altar was filled to about the depth of six inches with fine ashes. Around, further from the center, there were ashes and bits of human bones piled np to the depth of nearly two feet. These seem to have been pushed abide to make room for the fine ashss which were left in the center. The professor sunk a twelve foot shaft down the center of this mound, and, whes he came to this huge altar, he excavated a3 far around it as he could without having it cave in on the men — perhaps obtaining a diameter of about twenty-two feet, without discovering the outer rim of the altar.

St. Louis, Feb. 3.—No arrivals or de partures, and a good deal of ice is still paß3ing the city, but not enough to 6top the passage of boats. The steamer, Montana, left for Chester last night, on a trip of observation, and is expected to re turn laic to-night. Navigation south will be resumed to-m«rrow. The ioe in the Osage river broke up today, and the Mis souri i» believed to be open as all the ice passing here comes from the Missouri. The gorge at Alton it still solid. The river rose three inches to-day, and the government gauge now mark 3 nine feet six inches. MINNESOTA NEWS. New Ulm Bepfew: Two runaways oc curred in West Newton last Monday. Mr. C.

CHARLES. .4 Viospcroiix nnrt Enterprising Minneso ta Cilij--S<>tnfo[ Ha Leading Industrie*. iSpeci ■:. r-> tho (iit.Le.i Thi3 i* one of the few towns in the west which hss never had any especial boom but which has always been a good town. Away back in ISC3 when th 9 Winona <fc St. Peter Rulvrny company made it their temporary terminus, it is true that a trade was done with a va-<t territory west of it, and everybody coined money while it lasted, but with the extension of the road to RochesUi and beyond, thi? vanished and Ihiaga assumed their legitimate status, which has been uniformly prcsp-rous since. At one time, years ago, S:. Charles waa one of the bast vihc-at markets pn the line. Its tributary territory in every direction was, and is, splendid agricultural country, and the almost limitless expan-eof waving grain whioh sarrounde-d the oity was a sight t-j see. Of late years, since the farmer? of southern Minnesota have learned the fol'y of canfining themselves entirely to wheat raising, the system of agriculture has met with a radical change here a3 elsewhere in this pa: I of the state, end stock raising, the dairy, the ealture of oorn, barley and other crops ha 3 cau?ed the system of do ing business to nnJ";.-go a like change and tho most decided bonofit3 have been de rived by both business men and farm ers. I was much interested in a conversation with Banker Woodward upon the subjeot during my recent visit to the city. Said be: "Tho business of this place was never on a more firm and substantial basia than it is to-day. True, transactions are not as heavy as formerly in some lines, but it is a sure business and verj many of our farmers are becoming comfortably well off. The city of St. Charles begins to assume a solid a?peot. Good substantial brick structures are rapidly taking the plaoea of the inev itable frame store of earlier days, and it will not be long before the wooden rows will entirely disappear. A vsry neat Opera hou3e with fine stage scenery and all modern improvements, with a seating oppaoity of i">o and with it* auditorium upon the ground floor, has been recently completed by a joint stock oompauy, composed of a nnmoer of the lending oitizaua. It is built of brick, with a metal roof, and ia an ornament to the city." The feature of the moot vital interest to me about the town daring my stay was it 3 hotel. When you hit a traveling man on this topic you can always conclude that you are about to interest him. The memory of former j eats wao upon me and I lost no time upon my arrival in finding my way to the Kelly house. I do not imagine that my good host and his estimable lady will acquire nnlimitod wealth bore, but I do know that two people who do more for their guests than they do are hard to find. Daring my visit I called npon Charley Wardner, who away back in 'C 3 wes a heavy merchant and wheat dealer, and w^o has just withdrawn from business. Mr. Ward ner has been an invalid for the piu-t six years with soiatio rheumatism and hss been a great sufferer. His present condi tion is, however, much more hopeful, acd the whole community are gratified. Taking the agricultural and commercial features out of the city of St. Charles and you have still a considerable amount left in her manufacturing interests. Awuy out on the prairies of Dakota when you see a farmer driving along the road, you are quiteJ«pt to see "St. Charles Wagon, H. 0. Parrott <fe Co., makers," painted upon his wagon, and if yon pV him what sort of a wagon it if, he will tell you it is a gocd one. I am certain lot like Sohlitz's Milwaukee beer these wagoiu are a first class article and hay ■ oiide the town famous. The factory was established over twenty-five years ago, and has been grad ually increased in magnitude until the building r.nd yards cover nearly an entire block. The works are not upon the mammoth scale of many similar institutions elsewhere, but the work turned out is strictly reliable. The past season 500 farm and light spring wagons, 500 sets of harrows, 250 sets of bob sleds and a numbar of cutters and light sleighs have been manufactured, be sides repairing and general custom work in both wood and blacksmith shops as their business demanded. The proprie tors, H. C. Parrott and Henry Talbott, are both constantly on hand to aapervfsa and lay out work, and everything not of the best grade of matarial :s at once discarded. No one ever Mmc to St. Charles in twen ty-five years who could Bell any other wagon set up beside theirs. Virtue.is its own reward, and their business sucsess, while well merited, is no lein a source of crodit nud also a profit to their city. One thing mora St. Charles should have .and that is a flouring mill. There is no point in southeastern Minnesota which offers a more desirable location, and it is a matter of astonishment that the fact has not been discovered and taken advantage of ere this, and it will not be stmuge if somebody does see t!i»< point in the near future. Politically St. Charles ia Republican, although they have a Democratic m;»yor ;a the person of H. C. Parrott, E3q. The Republican majority is not large enough to win un less they nominate their best men, wbick is a state of things devoutly to bo payed for in our state politios. Representative W. H. Hill, who assisted last winter at the Windom funeral, and who has been for long years the publisher of the St. Charles Times, one of tha very be3t papers this part of the state ever had, has bu?pendod its publication and is at present in the Devil's Lake region in northern Dakota in the interest of the land department of the St. Paul & Manitoba road. The Union at present enjoys an unlimited monopoly ot the good things usually the lot of a country newspaper and is evidently thriv ing. When I coma this way apain I will drop you another line. E. F.
