Zumbrota, Minn., 13 About 2
o'clock this afternoon Jones Hall,
city marshal of this place, started
out after a horse thief and overtook
him two miles south of town. While
attempting to arrest him, the thief
shot him through the hip, inflicting
an ugly wound, how bad is not
known. The thief escaped toward
Rochester. A liberal reward will be
offered by the village council for
his arrest. He is tall and slim,
wearing a slouched hat poor clothes,
close cut hair and full beard. He
rides a dark bay mare, stolen near
Flandieau, 12: One of the heavi

o'clock. Lightning struck the house

on which Mr. and Mrs. Farris were
asleep, burning the pillows and ren
dering them both insesible. Mrs
Farris has not yet recovered, and
Mr. Farris is still in a semi-con

few weeks, lying between them, es
caped uninjured. The doctors think

New Haven, 11: It is announced
by the Morning News, of this city,
that James Knox Polk, the name
sake and grand nephew of President
Polk, has been taken to the asylum
for the insane at Hartford. This
was the climax of an erratic career.
His eccentricities of late have beer,
strongly marked. Last year he
shaved off his eyebrows. One day
soon after, he got off on a tantrum
and pouuded a neighbor's boy on the
head with a beer bottle. His wife,
as a precautionary restraint, took
the requisite measures, and the
young mail, who had a happy youth,
a promising future, and the expect
ation of a greet career, is now in the
insane asylum, a mental wreck at
the age of twenty-seven.
Moorhead, 11: Thomas O'Keil,
who has been held in the Moorhead
jail for a year or more for safe keep
ing, from Becker county, was taken
back to Detroit a few days ago, and
has now been adjudged insane, and
will go to St. Peter. He charges
some attorneys with having sold
out a case which he was bringing,
and another in which he was defen
dant in which lie was represented
by them.. There are many people
who claim that the whole matter of
his imprisonment would not hold
water, and his subsequent alleged
insanity was merely trumped up by
prominent men to get him out of
the way, though for what purpose
is not known. From all accounts,
it seems that the mat) has been, and
is, the victim of outrageous perse
cution. It is said the case will be
Deadwood, 14: Alexander Fidd
ler, a notoriously hard character,
was lynched at Sturgis this morning.
He and two soldiers named Hews
and Brown assaulted and robbed an
emigrant named Schramm of $300,
near Fort Meade, Wednesday eve
ning, In the scuffle Hews was shot
in the arm, and upon being ques
tioned at the hospital disclosed the
names of his confederates aud the
particulars of the assault. The par
ties were arrested. At 4 this mor
ning Fiddler was taken from the
officers by fifteen masked men and
conducted to the outskirts of the
town where, after threats of hang
ing, he promised to show where the
money was concealed and did so
whereupon he was taken into a
ravine and hanged on general prin
ciples. Probably Brown will meet
the same fate this evening. The pro
ceeding is generally approved.
Cleveland, 11: Isaac A. Stanley,
paying teller of the National bank
of commerce, was jailed this even
ing for embezzling $100,000 from
the bank. The shortage was diS'
covered yesterday afternoon when
Cashier Garretson counted the re
serve fund kept in a special apart
ment of the vault, combination of
which was only known to Garret
son and' Stanley. When asked to
explain the shrinkage Stanley con
fessed that a year ago he was
troubled about a debt of $800 in
his house and thought lie could
take that sum froin the reserve fund
without harm to anyone, invest it
in grain, realize a profit, pay off the
mortgage on his place and return
the money but the investment was
unfortunate, and to cover, the loss
he took more, and so on till he had
taken $100,000. The directors of
the bank met at the hotel last even
ing, and after consultation held
Stanley a prisoner at the hotel in
the custody of a detective. To-day
more conferences were had, result
ing in the arrest of Stanley, who
has assigned his property a£d some
speculation deals. The bank an
nounces in a card that it will re
cover part of the loss.from this? and
will not be affected by the defalcation.

This accident, related by the Grand
Forks Plaindealer, shows that one
hotel has a soft side: "Mr. S. P.
Norton, proprietor of the Central
house, Crookston, arrived in the
city to-day in searcli of a man who
suddenly got a start of the world
for $1,000, at Norton's expense.
He had been boarding at his hotel
for a week or more, when, on the
morning of his departure, he re
quested Mr. Norton to endorse a
draft for $1,000, as he was not
known at the bank.
Mr. Norton did so, and had the
pleasure of paying it this morning.
The draft was drawn on a bank in
Palmyra, New York, that has been
out of business for over a year. The
fellow took the next train coming to
the Forks but it is hardly expect
ed that he had occasion to linger
long among us. In all probability
he had urgent business in Canada,
which he is now superintending in

Women in Journalism.
A woman who has spent half her
life in journalism at the West, and
is now editing a magazine in New
York, says: "The women who suc
ceed in journalism, or any other
profession or business, are those
possessed of brains and energy
enough to 'make a way,' if there is
none already prepared for them.
Success does not come to those who
sit quietly at home bewailing the
fact that a portion of our laws are
unjust to women, and that women
have not all the rights to which, in
their judgment, they are entitled.
No good is ever gained without an
effort, and the only way I know of
to get one's rights is to take them
—they will not be brought tobneon
a silver salver. The woman who
feels the necessity of work, either
from force of outward circumstances
or pressure of energy and will with
in, will find her pathway hard, un
even, and full of obstacles. If she
possesses the talent of patience,
which in nine cases out of ten will
serve her better than genius, she
will succeed. The chief difficulty
with the majority of women is that
they do not begin to labor until they
feel the need of money then, in ac
cordance with their necessities rather
than their abilities, they demand as
much saiary as those who have served
years of apprenticeship. I shall never
forget the first money I earned! It
was paid me for aNew York letter
written for the Cleveland Leader.
No check for a hundred times that
amount will ever seem to me so valu
able. It opened the way for me,
and when, after a few months, I did
general utility work for that journal,
I was willing to learn. The editor
in-chief once asked me, 'What would
you do if things went wrong with
you, madam—cry?' «No, sir,' I an
swered, 'I would fight.' This answer,
born of my boundless ignorance of
the world, pleased him, and he en
gaged me. There came many times
when I felt more like crying than
fighting, but I kept my work, and
now look back with thankfulness to
the experience gained in apprentice
New York Special: Following is
an extract from a column leader in
the Sun: "There was a firm of
swindlers in the city of New York
doing business under the name of
Grant & Ward. They called them
selves bankers and brokers. Their
occupation consisted in receiving
money from their customers to in
vest in government contracts from
which fabulous profits were prom
ised. No such contracts existed. If
they had existed they would have
been fraudulent. There were plenty
of men in this honest community
who were ready and willing to share
in the proceeds of a scheme to plun
der tbe national treasury, however,
and who found no difficulty in be
lieving that Gen. U. S. Grant, who
was a partner in the firm of Grant
& Ward, would engage in such an
enterprise. They put their money
in. Some of it they got back in the
guise of profits some of it went into
the pockets of other people. Finally
the inflow ceased, and the firm was
without funds to pay any more
imaginary profits. Then it collapsed
Mr. Fish's letter to Gen. Grant had
notified him that the firm was sup
posed to be dealing in government
contracts, but there appears to have
been no hesitation on this account.
Gen. Grant did not say to Ward:
"This thing is a disgrace and shame,
and must stop." He did not write
to Fish: "I don't know anything
obout any government contracts and
don't believe there are any." But
he has declared his perfect willing
ness, that a man who has turned out
to be one of the most remarkable
swindlers that ever lived should use
his name and influence for all they
were worth. The purpose in view
seems to have been pecuniary gain,
and nothing else. For the love of
money, the greatest military reputa
tion of our time has been dtmmed
and degraded by its possessor. The
people look on with shame. Keenly,
however, as they feel the degrada
tion of the man who led their armies
to victory and has twice been their
president, they can not accept in
extenuation or defense of his con
duct apologies which only tend to
throw a darker shadow about his
acts, or excuses which can not be
reconciled with the truth.
Voice of the streets in Pioneer
Press: A Winnipeg gentleman,
speaking of the proposed railroad to
Fort Churchill on Hudson bay, which
has been secretly surveyed, and will
be built if ever the controversy be
tween Manitoba and the dominion
can be favorably settled, says coal
exist' in large quantities on the
shores of Hudson bay. On Long Is
land, opposite Great Whale river,
950 miles from Churchill, is an ex
posure of anthracite containing-by
assay 94.91 per cent of fixed carbon,
and only 35 per cent of ash. It is
probable that other seams of similar
character are to be found on the ad
joining mainland, where the strati
fication is similar. On the Missi
naibi river, 150 miles from Moose
Factory, there are no less than five
exposures of lignite and Professor

the whole bed of the river appears
to be underlaid with lignite. The
quality is stated to be similar to the
ifouris coal, containing about 41.30
per cent carbon, 42.12 per cent of
volatile combustible matter and 4.71
per cent of ash. On Melville penin
sula, coal has been found on the
shore in small quantities, but no
exploration has been made to deter

veins. Amongst other minerals dis

The projectors of this road see
chances for another great city to the
north of Winnipeg. The spot selected
for crossing the Great Saskatchewan
is at the head of the rapids, where
two islands divide the channel of the
river, and the banks are
feet in height. There is plenty of
stone here of a suitable description
for piers and abutments. The length
of the grand rapids is nearly three
miles, and the fall in that distance
forty-four feet. Looking forward
to the time when the immense pro
ductive area of the Saskatchewan
valley shall pour its golden harvest
of grain down the channel of the
mighty river, in the steamboat and
barge lines of the future, conveying
its wheat to the seaboard, this may
be destined to become a Canadian
Minneapolis. It requires no pro
phetic eye to see, in the near future,
tho development of this magnificent
water power, and the building up
by its means of a city that may rival
any upon theBritish-American con
tinent. With a harbor in Cross
liike,*the banks of which are suited
for the construction of twenty miles
of wharves and hundreds of el
evators, where fleets of barges could
lie safely out of the current, and the
shipping of the river and of Lake
Winnipeg find their cargoes, it is
not dificult to conceive that the
wilderness of the present may be
soon transformed into the city of
tbe future. This is the radiant
view taken by-our Manitoba cousins,
who want to dodge Canada by way
of the north pole.
