Two more prisoners have escaped
from the Sioux Falls jail. This is the
second Jail delivery there in a short
time. A this rate, they will have to
send their prisoners to Worthington to
tie kept in our impervious, sure-cure,
never-fail steel cage.
W would like to ask the St. Paul
Pioneer Press, while it is defending the
St. Paul & Sioux City Railroad and
sending reporters to interview the man
agers, to also send reporters to inter
view the business men along the line.
Give us both sides. I is right to give
MM managers a hearing and an oppor
tunity to correct any false *r mistaken
charges made against their manage
ment, but now give the business men
along the line a hearing also. Let us
see whether or not there is any reason
to complain of the policy of the road.

ONE YEAR TO HOMESTEADER*
The house committee on public lands
has instructed Washburn to report fa
vorably Poehler's hill, which provides
that settlers may be allowed one year
from the date of filing applications in
which to commence residence upon
lands under homestead entries.
The Rock Island railroad party,
which passed over the St. Paul & Sioux
City road on the 12th in a special train,
expressed as much as they could of their
surprise and delight after landing at
Sioux City. A resolution was adopted
thanking the road and Mr. Flower, of
New York, is reported as saying "that
the party were surprised beyond ex
pression to find a country of such beau
ty and fertility between St. Paul &
Sioux City, and a railroad so well bal
lasted and so ably managed, and that
he, for one, predicted a great future for
the St. Paul & Sioux City line."
Bless you, Mr. Flower, that is noth
ing new to us. "We told you so" six
or seven years ago and the mole-eyed
said we "exaggerated." If you had
read the A A N E regularly you would
have known all about tins beautiful
country long ago.
TIT FOR TAT.
The people of this part of the State
look upon the railroad war between the
Milwaukee & St. Paul on the one hand,
and the St. Paul & Sioux City on the
other hand, a good deal as the woman
did when her husband had the fight
with the bear. When the bear was on
fop she cheered and when her husband
was on top she cheered also. When the
M. & St. Paul heads the St. P. & S. C.
off west of Sioux Falls our people ciieer.
And when the St. Paul & Sioux City
leads the M. & St. P. in building west
of Heron Lake, our people cheer also.
The fact is, we want them both to win.
Those familiar with the railroad his
tory of this paitof the State, are no lit
tle amused at the solemn iteration and
te-iteration by the St. Paul & Sioux
City interest of the "bad faith" exhib
ited by the Milwaukee & St. Paul in
first occupying the field west of Sioux
Falls and taking the route to the Mis
souri which the St. P. & S. C. had in
tended to follow. To us this looks like
tit for tat. The St. P. & S. C. are beat
en at their own gaire. The M. & St.
P. is only doing to them as they did to
the Southern Minnesota.
A few years ago the Southern Minne
sota announced their intention to ex
tend their road west to the State line
and beyond. They wished to make
Worthington a point on the line, and
asked our county for a bonus. Our peo
ple promptly voted them a bonus of
$40,000 to be paid on condition that the
road should be built to Worthington by
What did the St. P. &S. C. do to head
them off? Built a branch from Worth
ington to Sioux Falls on the line which
the Southern Minnesota expected to
follow and thus shut the Southern Min
nesota out of Worthington. By this
stroke of policy the St. P. & S. C. Com
pany not only deprived us of a compet
ing line, but cut off our western trade
and reduced our business 50 per cent,
And now what we want to see, and
what we believe we shall see, is just
this: We want the Southern Minnesota
to get the branch road away from the
St. P. & S. C. and thus get back their or
iginally-intended route anil give us the
competing east-and-west road on which
our hopes have been based from the
first. This will be only justice, poetic
justice. That organization of the gods
Which presides over railroad matters
and sees that justice is done even to and
among railroad corporations, should see
to it that this pian is carried out to the
Next, we want the St. & S. C.
folks to beat the Southern Minnesota
all hollow in building west of Heron
Lake. We want them to have a road
into Dakota and just as far west as they
choose to build. But a* they beat the
Southern Minnesota out of the route
through Worthington originally, we
want to see the Southern Minnesota
beat them out of the branch now and
drive them twenty miles north for a
But all the talk about "bad faith" in
taking their route west of Sioux Falls
only amuses our people down this way.
We see that this is only tit for tat.
The Southern Minnesota dog Tray has
only got the help of the big M. & St. P.
Towser and proposes now to git back
the bone which the St. P. &S.C Spood
le took. Anything we can do to en
oourage the several railroad canines in
this little tight, we shall do cheerfully.
THE FREIGHT VEST ON A GAIN.
The Pioneer Press copies Gen. Sib
ley's letter to the Mankato Review and
In its remarks upon the letter says the
Review's comments are "either wholly
groundless gross perversions of the
From the stand-point of any one at
this end of the line, the Review's com
ments apero the matter of freights are
in general well grounded.
So far as Worthington and vicinity
are concerned, we do not know of a sin
gle business man or farmer who does
not complain constantly of the exoibi
tant freight rates. The A A N E last
spring published an article giving the
exact figures, as copied from the freight
bills of our merchants, showing the ex
tremely high rates of the St. Paul &
Sioux City as compared with other
roads. And Gen. Bishop, in his reply,
disposed of these figures by saying that
they simply proved that eastern roads,
with a large business, could carry for
less rates than a western road with a
The Railroad Company seem to think
that those newspapers which- publish
the protests of the people against exor
bitant freight mtes. are hostile to the
road. We do not believe there is an
editor on the whore line who is not
friendly to the road and ready to ac
knowledge the fact whenever the Com
pany does a generous act. We certain
ly have been much more swift to praise
than to blame the management. Bu
in tils' matter of freight rates there is
but one thing to do, yiz: to show that
they are exorbitant, and say God speed
to any competing road which proposes
to build into this part of the State.
The advent of the Milwaukee & St.
Paul among us will save to our people
millions of dollars in the next ten years
by cutting down freights and giving
Chicago houses a chance with our busi
While we, in common with every man
on the line of the road, enter our com
plaint against the exorbitant freight
rates, against the do-little policy of the
road in selling lands and securing set
tlers, and against the high price of the
lands and the terms on which they are
sold, we are always ready to acknow 1
edge the generosity and courtesy of the
Company and their efforts to accommo
date the public.
The following from Gen. Sibley's let
ter we believe to be true:
It is the only railioad company, with
perhaps one or two exceptions of later
date, which is managed and controlled,
and has been from the beginning, ex
clusively by citizens of Minnesota. It
has never ti ied to defraud, deceive or
injure any locality, individual or cor
poration. It has never caused the death
or serious injuiy of a single passengei
of the hundreds of thousands who have
been safely transported from place to
place over its lines. Its load bed and
bridges are not allowed to become dan
gerous by reason of inattention or par
simony. It keeps no drunken or gross
ly immoral men in its employ. Its di
rectors are citizens of St. Paul, Minne
apolis and Stillwater who are well and
widely known throughout the Stite as
the peers of any others in integrity, in
telligence and public spirit.

O N I June 13, 1879.
EDITOR A A N E The Railioad war
is still at a fever heat. A week ago the
St. Paul & Sioux City sent seveial men
west on the line of the Southern Minne
sota to serve notice on all the contrac
tors to stop work immediately. After
them came one of the S. M. officials, or
dered them to keep to woik, to increase
their force, and to push on as rapidly as
possible, and since then men, teams and
supplies have been going forward on a
continual string. They are walking
now as far west as Pipestone county.

GEN. BISHOP ON THE HERON LAKE
The Flandreau Entei prise gve an
account of the visit of Gen. Bishnp'to
that place, and reports his remarks at
a railroad meeting as follows:
He stated that the company were in
earnest in the matter of building the
Heron Lake branch. A company to
operate the same was being oiganizud
under the name of the Ileion Lake &
Black Hills Railroad. Eventually this
and all other lines would be consolidat
ed under one organization and this
would be the grand trunk line of then
system. Eleven miles were already
nearly ready for the tiack, and thirty
miles were under contract. The amount
built this year would depend upon cir
cumstances, but they would in any
event uld to Pipestone county and
probably to Pipestone City. It was the
policy of the company to make fiiends
with t»ie people along their route, and
where they found a town stai ted, they
would run their line to it if they could
do so without too great a sacrifice.
With regard to the question of freights,
they had such runningconuections tli it
they could and would give the same
freight rates to Chicago and Milwau
kee, as any other line and their line
would have the advantage of being the
most direct route to Minneapolis where
the wheat of this region would find its
best market and upon the completion of
their Crystal Lake branch to the Iowa
coal fields, which they are now pushing,
this will be the shortest line to the coal
Their company would like a little help
from Flandreau to aid them in coming
here, and from representations made to
them they had been led to believe Flan-
dreau was willing to give. They would
expect repay in advantage all that
the town would give them., There
would be a meeting of the new company
at St. Paul next (this) week and they
would like to have the proposition from
Flandreau by that time, in order to
take action thereon. They would agree
to come here by October 1st 1880 and
wonld undoubtedly reach here several
months before that time. In reply to a
question whether they would allow any
other company to reach the Sioux Riv
er in Moody county before them. Gen.
Bishop replied that the people of Flan
dreau could safely leave that to the

PREPARING FOR THE MINISTRY.
There was a good deal of "religions
excitement" down at Wooster, O., the

There was a terrible scene enacted at
Wooster, O., last Monday. About ten
o'clock in the morning one hundred
men congregated on Market street and
engaged in a most brutal and savage
fight, using revolvers, knives, clubs and
stones. Nobody was killed, though a
dozen or more were badly cut and poun
ded. The ruffians were theological stu
dents fiom the college there, who are
studying for the ministry.

Paul, and bearing the signature of
"Cato." lately visited Worthing
ton, where a .woman was lately ned
for selling a gloss of cider, and while
extolling its oeautiful situation and
natural advantages, also found "store
rooms vacant, and a general appearance
of dullness and stupidity on every
side," which is wholly attributed to too
much moral reform aim temperance.
He then proceeds at length to tell the
prohibitionists of that place of "the
vast difference between what yon know
and what you think you know," and
gives this patent recipe for local pros
perity, as follows:
What your town wants to insure pros
perity is a good German Brewery, a
wholesale liquor house and ten retail
liquor houses. Then money would be
plenty and your people would prosper.
Your vacant houses would befilledand
your coiner lots occupied. The farm
ers of your own county would patronize
you instead of going to other towns as
they now do. Within a hundred days
a hundred respectable, public-spirited
business men would be added to your
number. A a general thing men are
not afraid of getting drunk. N one

Perhaps if the Worthingtonians
would comprsmise on cider and lager,
it wouldn't be so dreadful dull to Cato.

Worthington is now gaining a wide
reputation as a temperance town. If

al spite, prosecutions have been insti

from selling cider and our druggists
from selling liquor for any purpose
whatever. Even liquor for medicine
and wine for communion purposes can
not be had.

This is a compound remedy, prepared with
scientific skill fiom vegetable ingredients, which
rarely fails to cure the severest cases of Chills
atod Fever and the concomitant disorders. Such
a remedy the necessities of the people in mala
rious districts demand. Its great superioritr
ovcr any other medicine yet discovered for toe
cute of Intermittcnts is, that it contains no qui.
nine or mineral, and those who take it are frasj
from danger of quinism or any injurious elects.
and arc as healthy after using it as before. Ik
has been extensively employed during the last
Unity cars in the treatment of these digtressi&t
disorders, and so unvarying has been its •UCCCM
that it has gained the reputation of being infal.
lible. It can, therefore, be safely recommended
as a sure remedy and speciOc for the Fever find
Ague of the West, and the Chills and Fever of
the South. It counteracts the miasmatic poison
in the blood, and iVees the system from its influ
ence, so that fever and ague, shakes or chills,
once broken up by it, do not return until tha
disease is again contracted.
The great variety of disorders which arise from
the irritation of this poison, such as Neuralgia,
Ithenmaflsm Gont, Headache Blindness,
Toothache Earache, Catarrh, Asthma, Pal
pitation, Splenic Affections, Hysterics. Paha
In the Bowels, Colic, Paralysis, and dersoge
of the Stomach, all of which become intermit,
tent or periodical, hare no speedier remedy than
AVEU'S-AOUE CURE, which cures them all alike,
and protects the system from future attacks. Aa
a preventive, it is of immense service in thoso
communities where Fever and Ague prevails, as
it stays the development of the dlseasaif taken
on the first approach of Utepremonitory symp
toms. Travellers and temporary residents are
thus enabled to defy these disorders, and lew
will eversnner if they avail themselves of tha
protection this remedy affords.
For Liver Complaints, arising from torpidHr,
it is an excellent remedy it stimulates this organ
into healthy activity, and produces many remark
able cures where other medicines fail.
