On the river division of the St. Paul

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

from five to six and a half feet of snow.
The snow plow was at work at and near

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ducdii.-ai withdrawn it is evident that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,

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

bonds was $981,000, of which John S. Blair,
of New Jersey, holds and the
trustees of Moses Taylor's esuto $428,000.

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

pointed a committee to look up suitable
grounds, their action to be approved by
thj directors.
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.

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.

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.
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,

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
"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."
