If. PAUL MS. THE RAILWAYS. SATZSFACTORT CONDITION OF THIS ROADS AB 0 USD SI. I'A UL. The Future of the Milwaukee & Northern — Withdrawal of the Rock Island From the NorthweJtera Traffic Asauclation — The Utah Pool Restoring Bates—Various Local and General Notes. TJie Condition of the Roads. The enow storm thus far has not seri ously interfered with the running of the roads. There has been some snow and Borne wind along the lines of several of the roads, but no interference of any con- Bequence. On the river division of the St. Paul road there was a Blight snow during th« night and some wind, but no drifting. On the Southern Minnesota division a light snow is reported, but no trouble. On the Hastings & Dakota division a little enow fell and there was a little drifting, but no serious difficulty is anticipated, unless the wind and snow in creases. On the St. Paul & Manitoba the trains ware all right. The Breckinridge division wa3 troubled a little with snow, drifting out as far as Hope. At Crookston the meroury showed fifteen degrees below zero, but the snow was very light, hardly enough to cover the ground. The St. Paul & Omaha was troubled some on its western division. Out near St. James it was blowing hard and drift ing on the prairie. la the cuts there were from five to six and a half feet of snow. The snow plow was at work at and near Worthington. All along between St. James and Windom there is trouble, and the sjow plow is needed. The Milwaukee & Northern's future. [Milwaukee Sentinel. 1 As yet the winter weather ha 3 cot suc ctedtd in stopping the work on the Mil waukee <fc Northern's extension north from Ellis janctio n. Contractors have been un interrupted in work upon this twenty-five miles extension, and at the present time are engaged in putting through a number of heavy rock cuts. Tho grade will be completed and ready for the rail by the middle of next month, by which time no aoubc the company will have determined upon what farther building it will do this season. As has been previously announced in tha Sentinel, it is the Northern's jnteat to rush the road beyond the Wis ccmsir boundary and in the norther pen insula of Michigan, but the exact direction for heading such an extension now saems to be a matter of question. Should con jrresa deprive ihe road of the Ontonagon Imd graut, there will be no immediate inducement to complete the main line to a poidt of connection with a few miles al ;>lready bailt and in operation at the Lake Superior end, running south from Ontonagon. It is generally conceded that there is not and will not be for at least ten years, enough business to war rant the construction of a road tnrough the wild region of Michi gan in question. It would only be the land gr^nt. if anything, that would induce the railroad company to take immediate steps towards completing the road through that portion of Michigan, and with that in ducdii.-ai withdrawn it is evident that busine: 3 instinct will govarn, and the road be extended in such a direction as will naturally secure for it a paying business. The immense iron traffic, now within easy reaoti of the Northern, will undoubtedly claim the road's immediate attention, it requiring less than sixty miles of now traok above tha point to be reached by the ex tension now in progress to bring it to the famous Iron river region. The Rock Island Withdraivs. [Special Telegram to the Globe. J Chicago, Feb. G, —The notice of the Rock Island road of its withdrawal from the Northwestern Traffic association was served to-day upon members of the asso ciation end Commissioner Carman. It oaused a little bit of consternation at first as the association was regarded as one of the solid institutions, among railway mtn of this city. The difficulty arises from the fact that under the agreement the Rock Is land is cut off from shipment* to StilKva ter, Minn., the rule applying to Burlington also, because, as is stated, these two lines have uo direct line to this point. The action of the Rook Island is regarded by some as a stap taken for the purpose of winding up the Northwestern Traffic association, while others believe that the notice of withdrawal was given for the purpose of bringing the question fairly before the association as to the delivery of freight to Stillwater, and that a meeting will be held soon at which the rale hereto fore in force, whioh ha 3 excluded the Rook Island and Burlington from this business, will be revoked and thai both of these roads will be aocorded ihe same previleges as to Stillwater whioh are now accorded ta the Northwestern and Chioa go, Milwaukee & St. Paul. It wa3 rumored yesterday that this no tice of the Rock Island would break up the Northwestern Traffic association, as that lino was one of the important factors of the organizition. Notice of the North western of its withdrawal from the Central lowa Traffic association, is believed in rail road circles to be a retaliatory act on the Rock Island for its action in regard to the Northwestern Traffic association, as the Northwestern and Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul virtually have a monopoly of Stillwater business, the line of the former running direotly through Stillwater. The trouble is not expected to be easily settled, as it has bean brewing for some time, and it will take a very har mDiiiou? meeting at which there must be unanimous action to restore the condition of harmony that has heretofore existed. Utah Rates Restored. [Special Telegram to the Globe. I Chicago, Feb. 6. —From Commissioner Vining,*of the Western Trunk Line asso ciation, it was learned to-day that the[resuit of a meeting of representatives of the roads in the association had been to re store Utah rates. How long tue restored rates will prevail is a mere matter of oonjectuie, as the association is in a measure dependent upon the action of other associations for a maintenance of rates to competitive points in the west Mr. Viuing could give no assurance that tiie restored rates would be peciaßuent, but stated that they were established for the present and were subject to a change whenever an exigency demanded that an alteration should be made. It is appar rent from this that the Western Trunk Line association is in the field far business, and that It stands ready to take any stop that may be deemed necessary to protect its own interests whenever they may be antag onized by other associations. Withdrawals from Pools. Chicago, Feb. 6. —The notice which the Union Pacific gave of it 3 intention to with draw from the Transcontinental associa tion expires to-day, and the officials of that road announce tuat they will abide by the notice, and report no more business to the pool. The commissioner contends that the notice given was irregular, and it is expected a meeting of the association will be held shortly to consider the matter. The Rock Island road has given the usual thirty days' notice of its intention to with draw from the Northwestern Traffic asso ciation, and the Northwestern road has given notice with reference to the Central lowa Traffic association. These two asso ciations are not pools, but traffic agree ments for the maintenance of uniform rates, with heavy penalties for a violation. The withdrawing roads contend that the agreements of both are being violated, and the claim is made that unless the difficulties are adjusted before the expira tion of the notices a war in northwestern rates is likely to be provoked. A. J£eoeiver Wanted, St. Louia, Feb. 6.—DeWitt C. Blair, trustee for the bondholders, made applica tion to Judge Treat, of the United States court, in ohambers to-day, for the fore closure of the mortgage and the appoint ment of a receiver for the St. Louis, Han nibal &, Keokuk Railroad company. The road runs from Hannibal to Gilmore Springs, Mo., a distance of eighty-two miles. The total ißsue of first mortgage bonds was $981,000, of which John S. Blair, of New Jersey, holds and the trustees of Moses Taylor's esuto $428,000. Utah Hat9B. Chicago, Feb. 6. —At a meeting of gen eral freight agents of the western trunk lines to-day, it was decided to advance Utah rates to-morrow. Rail Notes. E. J. Barney, president of the Barney, Smith & Co., the well known oar builders of Dayton, Ohio, was in St. Paul yester day. Mr. W. B. Wheeler, general traveling agent of the "Royal Route," reached St. Paul yesterday, and improves in appear ance every trip. The stockholders of the Boston & Prov idenoo railroad, in their annual meeting, elected directors and voted to improve the terminal facilities at Providence. General Superintendent Theodore Hart man, of the Little Rock & Fort Smith and Little Rock, Mississippi River & Texas Consolidated railroads, has resigned, to take effect March 1.; Mr. W. C. Dennison has been appointed general freight and passenger agent of the Atlantic & Pacific Railway Company vica C. R. Williams, resigned; headquar ters at Albuquerque. The soalpers of St. Paul are considering tha matter of organizing for the purpose of maintaining rates. This will be a very excellent thing fer them to do. It will serve to keep them ail busy watching eaoh other. The Milwaukee, Lake Shor3 & Western's earnings for January, 1884, were $69,705, against $65,382 for that month in 18S3. Earnings for the last week in January, jnst past, were $23,575, against $19,461 for the corresponding week in 1883, an increase of $4,114 for that week. For some time the Northern Pacific and the St. Paul & Manitoba roads have had an understanding in regard to the freight business at Fargo, Moorehead, Fergus Falls and Glendive. Now the two roads meet at other point?, whioh will undoubt edly be included in the arrangement. A. E. Johnson <fc Co. report a very large inquiry from all parts of the northwest for passage tickets from Europe; especial ly from Scandinavia and that local agents for tho direct steamship line, Thugvala are reporting a good many sales of tiokets, although the season does not begin gener ally till the Ist of March. A number of German bondholders of the Davenport & St. Paul railway have asked leave, by petition in the Unised States circuit coLrt, to be joined as com plainants withSalzbach Bros., the German bankers, in the suit against Edgan Thom son's estate, Andrew Carnegie and others, brought for the recovery of damages tor the alleged over issue of bonds of that road. The early land hunter has already made hia appearance in our midst. At present thi^ class is chiefly composed of fioee who have relatives in northwestern Minnesota or northern Da kota, and who kne* of some particularly choice! piece of government land in their immediate vicini-y, which they are anx ious their friends should secure before the great rush begins. Track laying on the Lonsville, New Orleans & Texas ruilroad has been resumed at a point sixty miles south of Memphis, and will be finished to Vicksburg, Miss., within four months. Daily trains will commence running between Memphis and Magnolia, Miss., fifty-six miles to the south, by the 20th of this month, which will enable travelers to reach Helena, Ark., in three and a half hours. The present route via Forrest City, Ark., requires about six hours' time. Milwackee & St. Paul earnings for the month of January were considerably in ex cess of what had been anticipated. This condition is to a great extent accounted for by the unlooked-for heavy inorease during the last week of the month. The January earnings by this company's sys tem of roads were, in 1884, $1,467,000; in 1883, $1,359,000; showing an increase of $108,000. Daring the last week in Janu ary the earnings were for 1884, $461,000; for 1883, $386,000; an increase of $75,000 for the week. A. 0. Bird, general freight agent of the St. Paul road, has issued the following un der date of Feb. 1: To Agents and Connecting Lines: Oar Chicago and Milwaukee agents are being greatly inconvenienced, and shipments seriously delayed, owing to a failare on the part of forwarding agents to show on way bills the full address of consignees. Hereafter, billing of property destined to points beyond Chicago and Milwaukee must invariably show (in addition to the mace of consignee, town and state), the name cf the county in which the town is located. Any loss resulting from a failure on the part of forwarding agents to com ply with above instructions will be oharged to the party at fault. Old Time Volumes. Adjutant General MaoCarthy presented the state Historical Society yesterday with a very old and valuable folio work in two volumes entitled " The Life of James Doke of Ormonde, from his birth in 1610 to his death in 1088, being an account of the most remarkable affairs of his time, and particularly of Ireland under his govern ment, a valuable collection of letters writ ten by hia grace, by the king and secretar ies of state, as also of the great men of the period." The author is Thomas Carlyle,M, A., apd the book was published in London in 1736 or 148 years old. Laura Don has been engaged as leading lady for Frank Mayo. iHtf ST.

Mr. Soott, the secretary, the:. ;>ad the list of those who have already subscribed to the enterprise. The amount subscribed is $4,500. On motion of Mr. Geo. W. Walsb, a committee consisting of Robt. A. Smith, Col. Allen and Frank Keogh, was appoint ed to call upon the business men of the city and solicit their assistance. A committee consisting of Messrs. Gary, Ehle Allen and Littel was appointed to solicit subscriptions outside of the busi ness houses. Me6srs. Cary, Littel and Walsh were ap pointed a committee to look up suitable grounds, their action to be approved by thj directors. ELECTION OF A MANAGES. The meeting then proceeded to discuss the matter of electing a manager. A very lengthy discussion took place as to the claims of several applicants for the posi tion of manager, and as to the prospects of scouring a good nine. The name of Mr. R. L. Hunter, formerly of the Cleve lands, and now in this city, was mentioned favorably and he was invited to address the meeting. He spoke of base ball matters in general, and gave it as hi a opinion that it would be impossible to secure a first class nine at the start, for the reason that most of the best talent had already beeu picked up. After Mr. Banter had gotten through he retired, and on motion of John Ahem, the secretary, was instructed to oast a bal lot electing him the manager of the team. Mr. R. 6. Hunter, the manager of the St. Paul nine, is a young man twenty-six years of age. of fine physique, and weighing about 185 pounds. His pitching qualities are rated as high, and he will till this posi tion in the nine when his services are reeded. He has been connected with the Toledo and Cleveland club 3 last year, and he also eer* ed two seasons with the Cor nell University team. He formerly resided in Cleverand and his selection is regarded as a good one. A meeting of the directors will be held at the Merchants hotel to-night, to arrange for scouring players. CUT BIAS. Th.® Specimens of Humanity Displayed at thu Police Court Yesterday. And in those days dissension and biok ering will descend upon the household,and there will be many Rachels in the land, for it is a wise father, who knoweth his own son, who shall come into the judgement place and give the old man's iniquity away. Thus beginneth the first snap; Selah. The moral lessor s taught in the police court each morning would soon fill a volume, but the important feature is that the subjects are all cut bias. The case of John Becker, arraigned yes terday for beating his wife, tells a story whioh in these days, alas, is becoming too familiar. Becker is a man of some meaßß, but whisky and a mean temper sometimes turn him into a fiend. The sad story of wretchedness was related to Judge Burr yesterday by a little boy, the son of tha accused. With fear and trembling he took the stand and related how his father got drunk and choked his mother. "When papa collects the rent," he said, "he comes home and whips mama and me." Tuesday night the little fel low rushed into city hall and said that his father was choking his mother to death. An officer went to the house and Becker promised to behave him self. After the officer had left he turned on the woman again, and whipped her and the boy. His arrest followed, and he was fined $50 and put under bonds of $250 to keep the peace. Chas. Cook was charged with stealing an overcoat from Allen's saloon on Seventh street, and A. R. Howard was up as an accessory. Cook said that he was drunk and that all he knew about it was that some one helped him to put on the coat. He was sent up for thirty days and How ard was discharged. John Swenson. a one armed man, was arrested on the charge of assault with intent to rob a Mr. Ford on the Stillwater road last Deoember. It appeared that Ford had sumed the ac cused for services and that while drunk the latter had attempted to whale the worth of the money out of him. The charge was changed to assault and he was committed for thirty days, i The bastardy case of Herman Hintz was sent to the county commissioner for set tlement. -" , JamesFlynn the^litilestrawbery blonde , who was arrested for whipping his col-; lossal wife, signed a bond to keep the | j peace.

A Matter of Justice. la the abstract of Secretary Hart's quarterly report to the state board of coi reotiqn and charities, our representative very naturally stated that the Hastings jail was an unclean institution, the city part of it being stated in the report to be filthy and unclean, while the country por tion of it was other wise. In order to do justice to the county authorities, we pub lish the full text of the secretary on that subject: "Nov. 6, the jail at Hastings was visited by the secretary and Sheriff HughConolly. The jail was not very clean. There is no sewerage. Buckets are used. There are ten iron cells, each 7x4J^, divided into two sections by a brick wall. One aide is oc cupied as a oity prison and is kept in a filthy condition. The jail is badly lighted, and is not very secure. Heat is furnished by a box stove, and pretty good ventila tion by flues in the wall. Sheets, pillow cases, towels and under clothing are changed weekly. All prisoners on entrance are furnished with a county suit, and their own olothing is returned to them on their discharge. There is ao trouble from ver min. Religious services are held weekly by ladies of the city." ____^ LEGAL. STATE OF MINNESOTA, COUNTY OF RAMSEY —SB. The state of Minnesota to George N.
