The markets at St. Paul yesterday were quiet and without interest. Wheat at Milwaukos was firm closing about at Monday's prices. Chicago wheat went back, closing as it opened Jfe'c lower than Monday; corn advanced }£c jind oats closed like wheat at Monday's figures. Pork was strong and advanced s@l2c.

Nbw Youk and Ohio are the pivotal Btitfas this year. The political party that carries them wins the fight. Iv that view this might not be a badtiok6t : For President: Henry B. Payne, of Ohio. For Vice-Pfesident : BosweO P. Flower, of New York. 'I'ir.: Patterson Guardian invites Senator Shtnriiin to introduce resolutions to inves tigate tho Hackensack county outrage> where a Republican board of cemetery trus tees would not permit the burial of the remains or a worthy colored citizen in said graunde. The Governor of the State of New Jersey, a Democrat, cent a message to the legislature condemning the action of the trustees, and asking the passage of a law to prevent the recurrence of the un manly proscription. The suggestion comes from Republican sources that ex-Gov. Butler, of Massa chusettts, be appointed Governor of Utah. This may be taken as approbatory of Gov. Butler's dealing with the Tewks bury enormity, and the belief that he wjold deal with the Mormon problem with the courage and power that all people, not of that faith, (desire, but wi.ich no one has ever been found capable of exercising. Such a selection, however, would paralyze the good Mr. Hoar, who is now himself engaged in the destruction of that foul blot. The Ma3?achusettes Senator pro poses to suspend every principle of com mon luw in the territory of Utah and to give the property of tha Mormon church into the hands of trustees appointed by the president of the United States. If Mr. Hoar can succeed in engrafting lis propositions upon the statutas of the United States, he should ba appointed Governor to carry them out. He would have a rare opportunity to see a good deal of vigoroud life before his reign oame to an and. ARTHUR CAXNOf CARRY OHIO. The frau k remark ot ex-Gov. Foster that Arthur cannot carry Ohio has stirred a lot of people who make their living out of politics. A Washington dispatch puts the n?atter in this light: The doubts recently expressed by Governor Foster that President Arthur could not c.irry Ohio if renominated, have caused general com ment und universal surprise here. It is the first time that serious thought has been given to the proposition that Ohio Republicans tan not be relied upjn to support the nominee'of the Chicago convention. Gov. Foster spoke the truth and he is treated as if he had committed high trea son. A groat rush is male to give Arthur a clean bill of health, and to declare that "the administration of President Arthur 'Jhas the unlimited confidence of Renubli oans," that "the President is held in universal esteem," that nobody can be found '" who will assert a belief that he is not actuated by honest purposes," that ha has the public interests in view in his appointments and administration of tho publio business. The S;ur route matter is called a "legacy," aud Arthur is absolved, from all responsibility in regard to it though he created Brewster; Geo. Bliss is his close friend, and if Dorsey is a rascal the President had the means of knowing it long before ISBO, and he publicly congrat ulated the alleged star loute thief for the Indiana infamy which elected Garfield and Arfhur. Iv order to bolster up Arthur his partisans go to the grave of the dead Garfield who was murdered by one of Arthur's friends, and attack the cease less sleeper in his tomb, charging that the main argument against the nomination of Arthur is "ihe vague one that those who revere the memory of President Garfield will never support it." To further counteract Foster and to contradict him, Eeveral Ohio congressmen are brought forward to cay Aithur can s carry Ohio. Judge Taylor, who is from Garfield's old con gressioual district, is put first on the list but be will not stultify himself by saying Arthur can carry Ohio. What he does say is this: "From the present aspect of affairs in Ohio I feel confident th« electoral vote of that state will be given to the nominee of th 3 Republican national convention. The majority given -would Tary, doubtless, in different contingencies of nomination, bull look for the result named, in any event. Judge Taylor's language, if it means anything at all, is in corroboration of Fester and not against him. The next witness is Alphonso Hart, who was a Democratic editor until 18G1, when he "flopped" and has been a Republican office holder ever since. "The result in Ohio," says this gentleman, "will. depend largely upon events to transpire between now and then." He don't honestly believe the Republicans can carry the state and don't expect it, though he says "Sherman can carry it, Logan can carry if, and so can Arthur." Mr. Hart merely damns his cause with faint praise. '/ Representative McCormick says, "when a full vote is polled, Ohio has been and is jet a Republican state." General Robinson, a former chairman of the Republican state committee, who had the honor of that position when Win. Allen was elected governor, agrees with Mr. Hart that "Senator Sherman, Gen. Logan, President Arthur or any other Republioan can carry the state." Congressman J. D. f aylor, timidly says, "while President Arthur is not bo strong aa some other candidates, I think he would carry the state." Billy McKinley, who like his prototype, R. B. Hayes,is occupying a seat in oongress to which he was not elected, dodges the question with this : 'lI believe Ohio will be carried by the Repub licans this year, and that the electoral vote of that State will be given to the noimn«» of the Republican National Convention, whoever he may be. These ere the witnesses. Not a man without qualification or reservation says he believes Arthur can carry Ohio. If Arthur had at any time any pros pect of being nominated at Chicago, he has next to none now. The man who caxnot oarry Ohio and New York 13 not likely to get the nomination. And more than this, Arthur will net only not be nominated by the Republican national convention, but the nominee, v whoever he may be," as our Republican friends are pleased to say, will not be a man named by Arthur or his faction of the Republican party. Mark the prediction, the electoral vote of Ohio will bo given to the nominee of the Democratic National convention, "whoever he may be." Stick a pin right here. CURRENT COMMENT. The Boston Transcript rudely extinguishes Seaator Logan's boooi for tiie Presidency. In true Boston didactic metro it says the Logan boo-,:) is fatally premature, and ho will never ba nominated. ''All the way down in the history of our Presidential elections," it declares, "tho manufactured boom has only perved to draw the tiro of factions inside tho party, and the (most beneficial to the party and tho country j has been that some more modest and worth\ man has been ultimately intrusted with the load-; orship. Logan is nothing if not Grant's shadow and the "old man" himself surely would not bo considered available." Ala 3! for Logan that he is enveloped in "Grant's shadow." That hor rid mill-stone is the very crisis of fate. The following delicate tribute is paid to an eminent citizen of the United States, whose; re cent ill health necessitated his absecce fora time from the fulcrum of the world we live in: "When Hatton is around Washington is a bright carmine from one end of the town to the other, but whenever he goes away the atmosphere and landscape thereabouts degenerate into a pale yellow hue. We are f ice to confess that wo con sider Mr. Hatton the Ella Wheeler of modern politicians." There, isn't that nice. The Cincinnati News-Journal has informa tion, which although it has been witheld from all the rest of the world, that patriotic print proceeds todistrsbute to tho country. "It will be nip and tuck between Sherman and Edmunds. Edmunds labors ucder one serious disadvan tage—he is ac honest man.*' We are so glad to know it. President Arthur had a pleasing interview with the delegation of tho Presbyterian general assembly to thank him for his action concern ing the restoration of the Nez Perces ludians to their home in Idaho. Mr. Justice Strong was leader of tho delegation. The bodies of many victims of the city of Co lumbus were taken to the little Baptist church at Gay Head and it is proposed that wealthy Baptists of Massachusetts contribute enough to erect a new edifice at a memorial of the disas ter. THE OILY INSPECTOR. How He Pauses Gasoline for " rest Oil.'' St. Joseph's hospital was the scene of great excitement a night or two since, owing to an oil explosion upon the pre mises. When the lamps were lighted it was found that a new barrel of oil, just tapped, was a danger ous article. There was a general bursting of chimneys and finally an explo sion which created great consternation and considerable personal injury to a hos pital employe who was active in extin guishing the flames. The oil was duly branded as having passed the state inspec tor's teat, but it is believed to be gasoline. A competent test will be made to ascertain the facts. This simply sustains what the Globe has heretofore stated relative to the in spection. Special Notice.

BRIDGING THE MISSISSIPPI. A bill, such as has been spoken of in the chamber of commerce, and embodying tho ideas there suggested in regard to bridgirg the Mis sisaippi river, authorizing the construction of a foot, carriage or railroad bhtlgos, at Buch points aa may be selected in front of the city of St. Paul, was read. Mr. Brisbin was present in the council cham ber aud explained tht> bill the same as ho did in the chamber of commerce last Monday morning. Mr. Murray said that the gentle men who liad prepared the bill had not accomplished what they intended. Tho city engineer had examined the bill and had found tliat tho provisions of it were such as to prohibit the construction of a budge anywhere below Wabashaw street, for tho rea son that it requires that the bridge .shall be not less than fifty feet above extreme high watf r mark. It was proposed to change tli i bill so as to limit this heigut to the space across the chan nel, and the bill was 6<,> changed and referred to the co jLiuittee on streets with power i-, aot. THE ANTHOXY HILIj SBWJEBS. A long and strong protest was received from a very large number of tbe be.-;t and most influ ential citizens on St. Anthony Hill, against the system of sewerage that has boen inaugurated up thore in the absence of water with which to wash them out. The substance of the c>'im plsint is that the refuse gets into the sewers and thero remains, and becomes very offensive. In reply to the communication Mr, Somers, the city engineer, sent in a communication, in which ho says the sewers io question provide drainage to ix iarge area that is rapidly building up witli ex pensive residence *. Without eewer age cesspool! .no needed. As thera have been at least fifty bail linga erected this season within tho district drained by this system of uewre ttie savin ■ in cost by avoiding the necessity of con st ructin s; cesspools has been very large, while the advantage of preventing these "cesspools be iog constructed and used to poison the ground is a much more important gain. The complaint ot' the petitioners erroneously assumes that the sewers cannot properly be flushed until tho completion of the city water works. He says the sewers can be flushed from springs in the neighborhood at little more cost. As to the request of the petition that all ex isting connections with the sewer be shut off, he says this can only be done at trteat expense and injustice to those who use the sewers. In lay ing out a system of eewers it is necessary to calculate for the future and provide to take care of the sewerage from the district when com pletely built up; as a consequence when the sewers are first constructed, and while only a few connecdons are made with them, the flow is so much less than their capacity that it be comes necessary to frequently flush them out, which has recently been done and from personal examination since, I am convinced that the troublH complained of has been removed, and the flushing will be attended to whenever occa sion requires, which will keep the Eewers in this district as clean and healthy as any in the city. The matter was finally referred to tho commit tee on streets and sowers. MISCELLANEOUS. A revelation was offered to give a portion of the city printing to the Volkszeitnng and the tame was adopted. A resolution was offered that the market mas tor is her. by authorized to remit the amount duo for hall rent, from the following persons and organizations: Mail carriers, firemen, po lice, Magee's employes, the Payne temperance le-tures. Ssveral of the members gave their views against allowing the building to be used without pay and finally the resolution was so amended as to include only Magee and the academy of science, when it was adopted. The board of directors of the St. Paul work house madd its annual reportr The directors admit that the institution is not at present self sustaining, but they point witli pride t j the economy with which the houo lias been man aged, and to the prospects for the future. Thty object to sending vagrants, infirm, decrepid and diseased p9isons to the work house. * They think it is not the place for them, and that the law should be so changed that the municipal court can send them to the poor hou.-e, or hos pital. The report was referred to the commit tee. The mayor sent in a communication accom panied by a letter from W. D. Wsshburn, in ra gard to the constructing of bridges over the Mississippi in front of St. Paul, which was sent to the committee on streets. Anothor communication from the mayor stat ing that ha bad appointed E. F. Walsh detec tive on the regular police force; also that he had appointed C. H.

J The city engineer sent in a communication saying that he had examined the matter of con structing a sewer on Nina avenue between Selby and Laurel avenue and that he found it to be a >art of a system. As it. will be necessary tr. build a large part of the system before reaching Nma avenue, he recommends that all of the sewers included be construct© 1 at once to reduce the amount to bo paid out of the bond fund I The matter -wa» referred to the committee on streets and the alderman of the precinct, i Thy ;ity engineer reported .that the order for. grading and bridging Mississippi '• street was in Lis hands for an estimate, but that under the agreement with j the - Si Paul & Mani toba road it will be necessary to change the grade of the street.

To day the public sale of reserved seats for the first grand concert ever given in the Grand Opera bouse commence?, and it must be remembered that there is not an undesirable seat for hearing music in the splen did edifice. The combination which will make up the entertainment is unapproach able, with Thuraby the greatest cantatrioe in the wot Id, Da Kontßki, the justly cele brated German pianist, whose school is different from any ever before heard here, and who always enchains an audience; and Mr. Glover, a delicious tenor, while the choral society will be heard to better ad vantage than ever before. A European paper saye: "MissThursby is the Patti of American concerts. In America, seats for her concerts sell for high prices. Ia order to be able to make her tour to Europe, Miss Thursby refused, from various American Barnums, sums which would assure the existenoe of many families. It is trnly difficult to im«giu« v voice more exquisite, or a faculty of exe cution more astonishing. No one h \a evar uaderstood or sung Mczart like Mies Thursby. Of all musicians, Mozart is her favorite. If she is hoard to-morrow even ing only in the famous variations of Prooh it will be no fault of her?, for in her eyea no success ia complete unless Moz ' finds a place somewhere in the programme. The Boston Evening Tranooript sa^s of the pianist: As pianist, Chevalier Da Kontski is astonishing. The strength, the volume of tone he can draw from the instrnmeiit, are phenomenal, and no mat ter how loudly he made the pianoforte roar and thunder, his tone 13 always agreeable and musical. He never deoends to mere banging. His touch in pianissimo is de lightful. He has a va&t variety of charm ing and day./.ling effects at his command, which he produces with a master's ease. 9e plays with infinite elegance, with gen uine feeling, toa, and carries an audience along with him without effort. Mants CrintO. Col. N. D. Roberts,the manager of Stet son's " Monte Crisro," company, which opens at the Grand next Monday night, arrived in St. Paul yesterday. In the way of melodramas this has baen pronounced the most powerful seen on the stage for many years. It is an adaptation from Dumas' celebrated novel by this name, and the success of the play in the east has "been phenomenal. It comes here with a power ful 038*, and the realistic and elaborate scenery, which is transported in a special car, was painted expressly for the play. A.t Seen by an Indian Fiahter. Elsewheie in this issue of the Globe may be found the announcement of a lec ture by late Lieutenant Colonel Ilges, of the Eighteenth infantry, his subjeot being "Fivo .-ears among the Apaches." The lectnro will be delivered at 3herrnan hall on Friday evening and the well known repatation of this gentleman for intelli gence and bravery together with the absorbiDgiv interesting character of his subject, should assure an immense audi ence. Col. lige? is en route to Washing ton irom the fi ontier, having been de tained here from illness, and upon the suggestion of friends he was induced to deliver his lecture. Col. Itges will be re membered as hiving conduoted the suc cessful campaign r.gain3t Sitting Bali in 18S1. He has had an experience which few soldiers can boa9t of, havitg passed his years of manhood amid the wildest scenes of the far northwest. Many chap ter* of his life are of thrilling interest aud r9ad more lik? tha pages of a romance. For these reasons the hall should bo crowded. The Modern Paradise. A good sized audience assembled at the Grand last night to make the tour of tbe Yellowstone national park through the medium of "CalTee's Wonderland." The views exhibited are fine presentiments of of nature and it is nature in h9r most ex alted and splendid moods. The tour will be niado again to night. A One-Sided Cock Fight, tSpecial Telegram to the Globe. J New York, Feb. 5.—A cocking main was de cided on Staten Island at an early hour this morning between birds representing New Jersey and New York. The conditions were $50 on each baitie and $1,000 on the main, and to show thirteen birds on each side. On weighing the chanticleers it was found that all of them fell in iad a grand main was looked forward to. It proved to be a one-sided affair, however, as New Jersey won the first seven battles, foui of them through the stupidity of the New York handler. When the seventh battle, and there'oy the main, was docidou in favor of New Jersey, the other side having lost heavily and fearing a continua tion of their bad luck, declined to proceed fur ther.

The feature of tho evening was an exceedingly able and interesting paper by Dr. Jennie Fuller, of St. Paul, on the subject of diphtheria, with regard to its ravages among children, the dis ease and treatment being described in a grapltic and very lucid manner. The paper was discussed at some length, a number of very sensible remarks based on ex perience and practice being made by Drs. ('. G. Higbee, W. H. Leonard, Dr. Steele and Dr. Mahafl'ey. Dr. Dorion gave a number of very interesting oases that had come under his obser vation, the symptoms of which he described at great length. Dr. Steels adverted to a number of eases tnat had came under his observation, aud he called especial attention to the influence of atmospherio Conditions on the malady. Dr Brazie spoko of local treatment and ap plications in cases of diphtheria. Ho had at first used the spray Hnd gargle, but in latter years ho hud almost discarded local treatment. He had found constitutional treatment niuoh more efficacious. Lr. Hall said he had useibelladona with good effect: he had given no local treatment. Tho dread dibease was discussed fully from the stand points of its being local and constitutional. Dr. Beaumont, spoke of the effect of tho disease on the throat, ear and eyes; he alluded to Mrexal cases where the effect had been paralytic and permanent; sometimes the vision was effected, atd lie had had cases where the eyesight wad entirely lost. The infectious nature of the disease was generally conceded by those present. AmoDg those who opposed this theory was Dr. Higboe, who said that ho b'-wed his belief on the uncontegious character of the disease from the fact that it had not bee:, demonstrated; to illus trate his belief he cited his own and tho exper ience of other physicians who miugled constant ly among patients, and who yet did not carry the disease away. , THE BANQUET. At 10 o'clo-k the society adjo-imed to the dining room of the Windsor hotel, when? a dainty banquet was sened. About forty cov ers were spread and the menu was very tempt ing, having been arranged by Mr. 8. A. Tom linson, of the hotel.

ISpecial Telegram to the Globe. I Chicago, Feb, s.—Several representative business men were interviewed to-day upon Mr. Morrison's tariff bill. Mr. O. W. Pot ter, president of the North Chicago Boiling Mills Co., said : "Well, in the first place, I have not the most remote idea that the bill will pass,or that anything will be done on the tariff question at thiß session of congress. I think, however, that all snoh agitation as that proposed is not only an injury to iron and steel basiness,but an in jury to all other kinds of business, and just as long as congress keeps up that agitation it keeps capital and labor in the unsatisfactory and uncertain condition we are now in, in regard to all kinds of trade. It seems as though our own business now is just as bad as can be, and everything of this kind makes it worse, if it is possible that it conld be made worse." "Should proposed reduction in tariff be carried out would it stimulate importation of foreign rails or increase it to any great extent?" "No, Ido not think it would, becaus the selling price of Amerioan rails now a the seaboard is so low that the tarii might be reduced 40 per cent before Eng lish rails would meet price of America! rails. Bat it is now oertain that America] manufacturers cannot exist at present prices, and the nearer you come to com pelling us to meet foreign rails at these prices, the nearer you are bringing Ameri can manufacturers to that point where British or other manufacturers can finally close m our establishments. I think the iron and stoel interests thi3 year are upheld by thoir owaer3 without any chanceof bring ing any revenue to trade. They are now conducting their business simply to pro teot their trade, if possible, until the policy of the government for the next foar years ia settled, and if it is settled that wa are going to have free trade or the next thing—the lowest revenue possible—l can see nothing pretty soon but the aban donment of our business to foreign mana fnoturors, except ia a few specialties. It would look to me as though the policy of a Democratic administration would ba to hurry ns to the same level that left us when the Rapublicau party became the dominant party twenty years ago, and if the majority of people desire if of course we have got to submit. But under Republican administration it has changed the condition of our country practically from bankruptcy, with civil war, in which condition the Democratic party left us to that of peace and general prosperity. But, taking our financial con dition to-day and our standing aa a nation, it would hardly seem possible that men of theory without any practice as sucaesaful business men would be allowed to take the country out of its present condition for a policy that would reinstate us iv a condition similar to that we were in two years ago, and I for one am a firm believer that they will not be allowed to do it." "Would the admission of iron ore and other raw material free of duty be of avy benefit to American manufacturer*.-" "I thiak the removal of the duty on iron ore would be of service to the New Eng land states, bnt would make competition in the west, where wo must U3e Lake Su perior ore, so much stronger; and the ad mission of scrap iron free of duty will be of further service to England only as it is equivalent to admitting foreign ore, foreign fael, foreign pi£ iron, foreign labor and foreign capital free of duty, because the admission of scrap iron is practically the admission of all these free of duty, and it of course af fects American ores, American pig iron, American, labor and American capital to just that extent. So far as admitting raw materials that we cannot produce hi.ro is concerned it would seem as though there should ba no objection; yet my judgment is that to such an extent as you remove the duty on such goods, just to that extent you Rdd to their valne to the producer without any corresponding benefit to our own people. Mr. J. K. Hannon, of J. V. Farwell A' Co. said: "A reduction of 20 per cent., it seem 3to me, would be perfectly proper to make on cotton and woolens. I thiuk, however, that tariff law should be remod eled, simplified and made more cle;ir. There are now a great many divisions and classifications of cotton goods which should bi done away with and a uniform rato on all that class of goods substituted. All -otton goods should be put under one head." "Would the proposed reduction in the tariff encourage importation at the ex pense of home-made articles?" "I do cot think importation would in crease very much. You see prices of do mestic goods have fallen so much that the proposed reduction in tha tariff wonlc! not relatively equalize the prices of foreign goods with them. You must bear in mind that the proposed change 13 not a reduc tion of twenty per cent, on prices of good 3. It ia merely twenty per cent, of the duty, aad that on the lowest priced goods would be almosi impercept ible." r "How are silk goods affected?" "They are not affected at all as I un derstand it. They are to remain at 50 per cent." "Would the proposed reduction benefit the consumer ?" "Not in ihe least. It would not have the slightest effect on prices so far S3 the consumer is concer&ed." 'Is there any demand on thj part of consumers for lower prices?" "Not at all. Consumers are only sur prised that prices are so low. Why, you have no idea how very cheap everything is. A lady can make herself a good oottou drees for less than $1, and everything is in proportion. Peopie are very willing to pay the prices asked and don't expect to get their goods any cheaper." Mr. Robt. W. Fair, general manager of Marshall, Field & C-j.'s wholesale ware house, said: "I do not think the proposed change would have any practical effect on trade here at all. It is so small as al most to be imperceptible." "Would it have any tendency to increase importations at the expense of home man nfaotured articles?" No, Ido not think it would. You see the home manufactured article has got to such a state of perfection that it can not only hold its own with the foreign made article here, but American manufacturers are now exporting considerably and their goods are competing successfully w jth foreign manufacturers on their own ' grounds. It is not now as it was fifty or : even twenty years ago. Priota here, too j have so declined within the last year or two that any ohange in the tariff would ' not affect them. I think there can be no donbt that prices aro now ai hard parj. The decline was not ow:r,,- to competition with foreign made good?, but v s can?ed by over production here." "13 there any cry on the part of tho con sumer for lower pricea?" "No, qnite the contrary, as is proved by the increased demand. There are far more goods going into consumption now than is U3ual at this ?ep.? O a c f the year, owing to low price?, and ererybody seems perfectly willing to p«,y what"is asked at present for all lines of aopd*'.'! •Would the proposed rt'Jaction lower the price to the consumer anyj" '•Not in the slightest degree The re duction is far too small to make any per ceptible reduction to the general consumer. I don't see that the change would have any effect worth speaking of in any way.*' TIE FATHEE OF WATERS. Organization of the Mississippi Eiver Convention by the Elec tion of W. D. Washburn Tem porary Chairman—A Large At- tendence and Much Enthus iasm, Washington, Feb. s.—The Mississippi river convention assembled this evening in Lincoln hall. The auditorium was divided into sections, by states, as follows: Wis consin, Colorado, Arkansas, Illinois, Mis souri, Minnesota, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee, Kentnoky, ludiana, Nebraska. lowa and West Virginia. Back of the stage was stretched a large piece of oan vast, bearing the record ot the amount of tonnage tar ried by Mississppi steamers, followed by the words: "If yon tell this to oongrtss be sure to add that with an improved channel this record of work will ba inareased II per cent, without increase of expense. This means benefits to the producer.' About ;100 delegates were present when the chairman of the execative committee, B. Wood, of New Orleans, sailed the con vention to order. Be said: There is no eeooomioquestion of ro much cana! im portauoe aa that now before the oonven tion. They represented a great population and an enormous area of country, The} come, not to comuiam:, but to vr h e as bus inessmen the oonolnsions of the people, and he believed the o< rill speotfully entertained.

A resolution was adopted, providing for the appointment of committees on creden tial*, roles, permanent organization and rates. That each state be represented en the committees. The commissioner for the west Disirict of Columbia welcomed the delegates in a brief address. He said this convention stood in prominence and in importance among the conventions held here. It concerned the welfare of the whole people. Strike from the repp the Mississippi river, or obstruct its flow, and decay and deterioration would rapid); spread itself through the life of the coun try. The convention eolaefed tha commit tees, and took a reces?. When the convention reassembled, a resolution was adopted, extending the privileges of the convention to the mem bers of the Ohio river committee now in the 3ity. The committee on permanent organization presented the following names of officers which were unanimously elected: President, E. O. Stanard, St. Louis; Vice-president, C. 0. Sheets, Ala bama; John C. Calhoun, Arkansas; H. A. McPeke, Illinois; M. A. Marks. Indiana; General G. M. Dodge, Iowa; A. G. Bneop, Kansas; Geo. C. Waddell, Lousiana; 11. C. Waite, Minn.; John R. Lynch, Mississippi; Hon. K. T. Vanhorr, MieEonri; Hon. Frank Pansome, Nebraska; Geo. H. Anderson. Pennsylvania; S. Colipe, Tennessee; Jno. McClure, West Virginia; Wm. Wilson, Wisconsin; James M. Freeman, Colorado; and J . H. King, Dakota. Secretary, Goo/ L. Wright, St. Louis. Assistant secreta ries, John W. Bryant, New Orleans; D. F. Wilcox, Illinois; B. P. Mo Henry, Perm. sylvnnia, and C. A. Lounsberry, Dakota. Standard addressed the convention. He said the delegates were neither Republi cans nor Democrats, bnt both, when the objects of this convention were on view. They were not here to buttonhole con gressmen, but to express a pentiment in favor of cheap -. station, and 6ee that these great national waterways were made the means of transportation for the produots of the country. He believed the east was interested in this matter equally with the .west, for were Lot cheap freights as important to consumers as to the producers. If this cjuntry re peated its history, ami doubled its popu lation in the next fifty years, we would have one hundred and ten millions of people, RLd bow could thsir freights be handled? Suppose the railroads were quadrupled, whose guarantee was there that they would not pool the receipts and maintain the present prices. On the maintenance and the improvement of the water ways of the couatry were the only checks upon the railroad. Ie New York state has spent $70,000,000 on her canals, was it not proper that this great nation should spend what wag necessary for tie improvement of the Mississippi, an improvement that would benefit direct ly 50,000,000 of people. Since the creation of the Mississippi river commission, congress had placed at its disposal about six million of dollars H,e believed the only way to get adequate" improvement of the Mississippi was through a commission. (Applause.) Stanard read extracts from the report o' the senate special Mississippi river com mittee, commending the work done on the river by the government engineers as valuable and important. He recommended the attention of the dele gates to that part of the report concern ing Jetties, and s?.w it was fresh and offi cial. While. he would not recommend ap propriations for rivers not now navigable and never could be made navigable. He earnestly hoped to see the day when the government would no improve the vast water ways of the west that ey would be navigable from the gulf to the lakes and the seaboard. (Continued applause). A nnmber of resolutions concerning the river improvements were introduced and referred to the committee on resolutions The convention received with applarse a resolution favoring the con tinuance of the improvement* of the Mississippi river, now in progress, nuder direction of the secretary of war. A motion was adopted thanking the pieaiGent for the two special messages to congress embodying his broad ant! statesmanlike views upon the improve ment of th 3 Mississippi river. Adjourned.
