T«nna$MO a Yaar, $t.oo for Six Months.
THUB8DAY, MAYft1878.
The Mankato Record thinks Mr.
Dunnill will be re-noaoinated. It says:
"In the first district there is not a
ripple ftp jthe surface. There is no-but
doubt .hut what Mr. Dunnell will re
ceive the unanimous support of the Re
publican qonYention, and reap the re
ward of his doings in a nearly unani
mous election. Of course that will be
serving him right."
In tl\e case of war between Russia
and England, intrigues of agents of
both nations in. the United States
iromise to place this country in a del
position.—Pioneer Press.
When the contest becomes one be
tween the two principles of Monarchy
and Republicanism, as we believe it
will, it will not need any special intrig
neing of agents to involve the United
States. W have steadily held to the
view that the present European com
plications would lead to such a conflict
and we believe so now.
That tramp who was hanged to a
lamp post in Mankato turns out to be
a man of straw. Arrah! You base
cowards, to treat a poor man of straw
that way, a man who never laid any
thing in your way—except a straw, a
man who was as innocent ot any crime
as the babe unborn, so to speak. It is
•aid that this execution, suspension,
lynching and deep —nation of a taking
off was intended to give warning to
other men of straw to keep clear of
Mankato. They are a fiery people up
there and will not be trifled with. Men
of straw prowling around their streets,
and sleeping in their hay lofts and
straw stacks, will be summarily jam
med into a suit of clothes and hung up
to every lamp post, as it were. We ad
vise men of straw to give Mankato a
wide berth and come to Worth ington
where we dump them into the sloughs
and leave them to give a pleasant mal
arial tone to the atmosphere.
The opinion that war between Russia
and Great Britain is now inevitable, is
almost universal, both in the diplomat
ic and political circles of Washington.
The foreign ministers, almost without
exception, say there is no way out of
the imbroglio, without a backing down
on one side or the other that would a
mount to a stigma of cowardice or iui
bec I ity.—Pioneer-Press.
The Worthington A A N E assert
ed the same thing six months ago and
has steadily predicted the most gigan
tic war since the days of Napoleon.
The indications are that before the
summer is over England will make a
furious onslaught upon Russia that
Russia will not only successfully resist
England but will push southward and
overrun a good portion of Europe that
the other powers will be compelled to
range themselves on one side or the
other, and that before the war is over
the United States will be drawn into
the contest. The upshot ought to be,
and may be, the overthrow of Monar
chy in i:titope and the triumph of Re
On our outside will be found an ac
count of the terrible mill disaster which
occurred at Minneapolis Thursday eve
ning last. A explosion occurred in
the great Washburn Mill, and immedi
ately following came another explosion
which crushed the Thompson & Hoyt
and Humboldt Mills adjoining, leaving
the three mills in ruins. The crushed
mills were soon in flames which spread
to the Galaxy and Pettit & Robinson
Mills, and the whole live structures
were destroyed. The mills were among
the finest in the world and contained
87 run of stona. The loss of life is es
timated at 17 and the loss of property
at $1,500,000. The amount of window
glass destroyed in the vicinity is esti
mated at $10,000. The shock was so
distinctly felt in St. Paul that citizens
of that city thought the explosion had
occurred in their own midst. Tw
men who were rowing on the river at
St. Paul, nine miles away, say the riv
er was so agitated as to till their shells
with water.
The theory is that the gases and fine
dust of the mill ignited, causing the
terrible calamity. The explosion oc
curred about 7 o'clock in the evening
when only the night force was on duty.
If it had occurred before 6 o'clock the
loss of life would have been much
Some express the opinion that the
explosion was not an accident but the
result of a wall-laid plan to destroy the
mills. The facts that an explosion oc
curred in three separate mills simulta
neously, and that it occurred just at
the time when the fewest men were
likely to be in the mills, give some col
oring of probability to this theory.
The Worthington A A N E says:
When the Southern Minnesota reaches
us, which will be in a year or two,around
Worthington will soon rank with Man
kato, Rochester, and similar points as
an important interior city. This is
now a fixed future fact and its realiza
tion win.uot.belong defened.'
Lake Crystal had just the same im
pression, when the cars reached that
place-several years ago, but Lake Crys
tal of to-day is the same as of yore, a
beautiful little village and that is all.—
Maukato Union.
Well, well, has it come to this? Are
we to be set down in a newspaper item
on a level with the little village of Lake
Crystal? Worthington has two rail
roads now and the Southern Minneso
ta coming, which will give us a direct
eastern outlet to Milwaukee and Chi
cago, just what Mankato has in
VI inona & St. Peter. Worthington is
the gateway through which pours the
vast immigration into the country west
of us. Worthington has now a larger
railroad depot than Mankato and it is
now undergoing enlargement which
will make it twice as large as any de
pot in Mankato. It is also rumored
that the railroad shops from Sioux City
are to be located here and that the train
dispatcher from St. Paul will be sta
tioned here. Things are now shaping
so as to make Worthington the pivotal
point on which the business and inter
ests of the great St. Paul & Sioux City
line turn. A year or two ago President
Drake said While here that in a few
years Worthington would be as impor
tant town as Mankato and his opin
ion on a matter of that kind is worth
having. Worthington is exactly mid
way between Sioux City and Mankato,
the central point in what is admitted
to be the finest prairie country in this
State and Iowa. That a city of consid
erable importance must grow up in the
heart of this region, is evident at a
glance, and that Worthington is to be
that city all the signs of the times indi
cate. Hence, by common consent,
Worthington has been called the
"hub." W have no "exaggerated"
notions about a great city at this point,
that Worthington is destined to be
one of the most important of the inter
ior cities of the State we have always
maintained and still maintain.
Those who can read the time aright
are agreed that the present period is
one of transition from old to new in al
most every field of thought and action.
All the elements are at work to produce
great changes, and the next ten years
will probably bring about as memora
ble events as have ever distinguished
any era of the world's history.
1. In the domain of religion, there is
going on a most wonderful change.
Much as the devout adherents of the
various churches may close their eyes
to the fact, s»nd go on predicting the
triumph of their particular creeds, they
confess a lamentable indifference on
the part of the great mass of men to re
ligion in any of its old forms. Many
of the old dogmas, notably that of an
eternal hell, have lost their hold upon
the people, and all the more intelligent
even of the clergy, who still feel bound
to preach the doctrine because they
think men cannot be trusted unless
held in check by some such nightmare,
confess the fact, and are preaching
love, mercy and education as the prop
er means for saving men. Count Cav
oursaid just before his death that he
had thought to live to see the birth of a
new religion. I was growing all a
IOIUHI him at that time, and is now un
der full bud and blossom and in a few
years will be ripe for the healing of the
nations. That religion will be Christi
anity, stripped of theology and priest
craft, and founded upt reason and daily
and hourly revelation and inspiration,
instead of upon mere faitli and the in
spiration of thousands of years ago.
2. In the political world, the armies
are already marshalling for a contest
which promises, before it ends, to be
the most gigantic and the most fruit
ful of good to the race, of any warcouragingly.
which has ever been waged upon the
earth. Europe is alive with Republic
an ideas and weary of Monarchy, and
should a general European war grow
out of the present Anglo-Russian com
plications, we expect to see numerous
uprisings in favor of Republicanism.
France is a Republic now England is
fit for self-government Germany is a
live with the American idea and Italy
and Spain even, which have writhed
for centuries in the chains of political
and church despotism, are as hungry
for Republicanism as the negro slaves
were for freedom at the time our own
civil war occurred. The overthrow of
Monarchy in Europe is neither impos
sible nor improbable within the next
3. In the field of social questions,
there is the saine distuibance. The
"tramp nuisance,"' as it is called, is
but one phase and part of a stupendous
whole. The Communists are organized
and drilling in Chicago and the Social
ists in St. Louis. The latter claim an
organization of 60,000 members in the
United States. The next Presidential
election will dtvJop a strength for the
clement which demands radical changes
and reforms in the relations of labor
and capital, which will astound thosj
who cannot now see the great uprising
on these questions coming. We should
not be surprised to see what is now
called the National Party come up as
the leading political party in the next
national campaign.
C. L. Hall, who is writing up the
co.mtry for the St. Paul Globe, Farm
er's Union, a:.d other papers, does full
justice to Worthington. From his let
ters we extract:
The town claims a population of from
five to seven hundred. She has her
large good school building, Congrega
tional, Presbyterian and Methodist
churches, United States land office, el
evator and flouring mill, the latter con
taining live run of burrs, four or five
hotels of various styles and capacities,
a court house, two weekly newspapers,
the largest depot on the line, the neces
sary goods houses, lumber yards and
other concomitants, in addition to the
usual lumber of professional gentle
men—lawyer, doctors and' gospel ex
pounders. Many of these new towns
have from one to three lakes each, ap
proximating their borders, where the
inhabitants can gather ice in winter
and navigate their waters in summer.
Worthington has its west and east O
kabenas, the former six miles in cir
cumference and the latter three. They
are two pretty bodies of water, and a
bound in fish and fowl. These enter
prising |eopl6 propose to establish a
pleasant drive-way for carriages quite
the larger lake, and adorn it
with a row of trees on each of the sides,
thus affording pleasure parties and the
towns-people a pleasant place for recre
ation. Less than two miles away is
another lake, the Ocheeda, a body of
water about twenty miles in circumfer
Of some of our business men, he
The Okabena flouring mi'l is one of
the interesting enterprises of the town.
Its capacity is a hundred barrels of
flour in twenty-four hours, motor,
steam fuel, hay and the furnace con
sumes about seven tons of hay in the
manufacture of one hundred barrels of
flour. A man and a boy run the engine
and do the firing. The hay.isof course
slough article, costing, loose laid down,
75 per ton. It is fed to the flames
with a pitchfork, and that operation is
all work and no play. There is no lack
of fire, but it requires a vast amount of
stuffing. That Kind of fuel is much
cheaper than any other they can get
here. It costs less than simply the
freight on wood, and the latter article
is not more than $7 or $8 per cord for
the best seasoned hard maple, deliver
ed. Some families use twisted hay for
heating their cooking stoves and warm
ing their habitations. It makes a hot
fire, and in a hay country like this it is
far more economical than wood or coal.
These mills have four run of stone for
wheat and one for feed, of which the
latter is turning out two hundred bush
els per day. In connction with the
mill is an elevator having a capacity of
twenty thousand bushels. The two
properties are owned by C. Z. Sutton,
and cost in the ajgregate about $40,
000. Joseph Lowe, a very skillful mil
ler, is the gentleman in charge of that
department. N flour in this part of
the country has a better reputation
than the Okabena brand, manufactur
ed at this mill. Two of the burrs are
four and a half feet each in di imeter
and the other three are four-foot stones.
There are five middling purifiers com
plete, and the entire works are in per
fect working order and tuned to profit
able industry.
Miner & Parsons, a real estate firm,
of Worthington, sold during the month
of April, mostly in Nobles county,
but a portion in Murray and Pipe
stone counties, 10,000 acres of railroad
lands, and 10«WX) acres of government
lands and improved farms, the greater
portion of it to actual settlers for cadi.
In the meantime this company loaned
out cash $10,000 on real estate to run
five years at 12 per cent, per annum.
Of prime railroad lands there yet re
mains for sale in Nobles county alone
about 145,000 acres the desirable gov
ernment lands are about all taken up,
and settled upon. There are many
large good farms being tilled in the
county this season, and the sod is being
turned for hundreds more. The Mur
phy Bros., two enterprising young men
from Ne Jersey have recently pur
chased a second-hand farm near town
of several hundred acres, and they are
putting it in shape for a good home.
They are not anticipating a fortune
from the venture this year, but they
will lay the foundation upon which they
expect to build a competence, and show
what industry combined with good
judgment is capable of wresting from
these alluvial acres. Bennett So Gris
sell, a lumber firm here, are soon to e
rect a two-story brick building, the low
er story to be devoted to a stock of gen
eral merchandize of their own, and the
upper story will be finished off for offl
ces and other purposes. Business of
all kinds is looking up. and people wear
a smile and have faith in a brighter day
ahead. N one down this way com

a very few instances of pure cussed*
