Thursday, March 18,1875.
THE next meeting of the National
Educational Association will be held
at Minneapolis, in August.
MINNEAPOLIS wants a new sus
pension bridge, and is fighting as to
whether it shall be a two-track struc
ture, costing $130,000 to $150,000, or
a four-track, costing $250,000.
A DEMOCRATIC paper, the Chaska
Herald, makes the sensible suggestion
that party prejudices be thrown aside
this year and both parties nominate
Judge Qilflllan for Chief Justice.
LAST Thursday Caleb Cushing,
our Minister at Madrid, presented his
credentials to little Alfonso, told the
lad to be good and keep his nose clean,
and the American boys shouldn't hurt
PRESIDENT Grant has sent strict
orders for the employment of such
military force as may be necessary to
check the Black Hills expedition
now organizing at Yankton and Sioux
SPAIN pays $80,000 for the Virgin
ius affair, being at the rate of $2,500
in gold for each of the crew slain,
without regard to color, and a higher
rate for each officer. This is better
than was obtained by Great Britain.
O N Thursday, after paying into
Court at Salt Lake $3,000 for Ann
'Liza's attorney's fees in her little di
vorce suit against him, and $25 fine
for not having done it sooner, Brig
ham Young went to jail for twenty
five hours for contempt of Court.
IN hit first speech in the United
States Senate, made Friday, Senator
Christiancy, of Michigan, opposed
the admission of Finchback as Sena

the President from censure for th*
course affairs had taken in Louisiana.
THE Pennsylvania railroad has re
duced the fare from Baltimore to
Pittsburgh $5 to Cincinnati $6 to
Indianapolis $7 to Louisville $8
to St. Louis $10. It is the very best
line from the West to the East, and

THIS State didn't have that little
storm all to herself. Wisconsin, Ne
braska, Ohio, Iowa, Utah and even
Mississippi and South Carolina caught
it bad. Railroads were blockaded,
bridges were swept away, and in Mis
sisippi four persons were killed and in
South Carolina two.
A SMALL gathering of politicians,
to fame unknown, was held at Cleve
land last week. They sat two days
on the questions of the day and finally
hatched out a new party, which is to
nominate a President and Vice-Pres
ident when the time comes, and run
him on the greenback issue.
As a reward of merit for his servi
ces in the last Legislature, the peo
ple of Pleasant Hill, Winona county,
have elected their late Representative,
the Hon. C. B. Sinclair, Constable of
his native village. He deserved the
promotion. If he behaves well the peo
ple should continue him as Constable
and keep him out of the Legislature
and other bad places.
A LAW passed by the last Con
gress allows Indians who abandon
their tribal relations to acquire home
steads under the provisions of the
general Homestead Law. This is one
of the most sensible movements the
government has yet made in its deal
ings with the Indians, especially those
peaceably disposed. If any are in
clined to give up their roving, lazy
habits and earn their bread by tilling
the soil, let every reasonable induce
ment be held out to them to do so.

MINNESOTA'S appointments have
kicked up quite a bobbery in Wash
ington. The President recognised
Col. King's right to control the ap-tail,
pointments in this District, and Dr.
Keith istobe retained as Postmaster
at Minneapolis. Dr. Day is to be

Graves at Red Wing, and A. E.

the last hours of the session railroad
trills with "jobs" in them, which the
Senate incontinently knocked in the
head and he was "judicious" enough
to come home and abuse Senator Cap

A Washington correspondent of
the New York Herald undertook, ott*
Sabbath of last week, to interview
Senator McMillan, of this State, as to
his political views, and the result is
reported as follows:
"Senator McMillan, of Minnesota, said
he did not know what the custom was in
Washington, but until he was more demor
alised than at present he should decline to
be interviewed on Sunday by anybody."
Whereupon the Herald, iu an edi
torial on "Christian Statesmen," at
tempts to be severe and succeeds only
in" being silly. We know of no rea
son why a public man should be com
pelled, at any and all times, to submit
to the questionings of newspaper cor
respondents, and be bored
what he thinks about this and what
his opinions are on that subject, and
very especially on the Sabbath. The
country would be none the worse for
having more "Christian Statesmen"
like Senator McMillan—men who, no
matter what the circumstances or sur
roundings, have sufficient moral cour
age and strength of character to bring
their actions up to their professions.
CANADA'S LIBERAL RAILWAT POLICY
Mr. James W. Taylor, American
Consul at Winnipeg, furnishes the St.
Paul Pioneer with a statement of the
proposed expenditures to be made by
the Canadian government for theproval
fiscal year 1875-6 upon the Canadian
Pacific Railway. The total, amount
is $6,250,000, of which $106,000 is
for grading 48 miles of the Pembina
Branch, under the' existing White
head contract, the Premier announc
ing that the remaining 32 miles would
be graded and the rails laid as soon
as the St. Cloud and St. Vincent
Branch should be completed from
Glyndon to the international frontier.
The liberality of these appropria
tions by the Canadian Parliament is
rendered the more striking when
placed in comparison with the parsi
monious and narrow policy of our
own government in the matter of
securing additional transportation
facilities. The present great want oi
this country is better and cheaper
outlets for the immense surplus of
products seeking markets, and in con
sidering this want Congress has been
strangely niggardly and short-sighted.
The injustice of this is especially felt
by the West, whose people saw Con
gress place upon them, at its last ses
sion, by anew tax bill, a burden oi
millions of dollars for the sole benefit
of Eastern manufactures, while it de
nied much that was needed and gave
what little it did give grudgingly
toward opening up new transporta
tion routes or improving such as we
now have. In proportion to their
resources, the United States could do
in this matter, for their own people,
ten-fold what Canada is doing for an
outlying province, and with greater
ease. It can only be hoped that, in
the course of time, our Congress may
learn wisdom from the Dominion
ARRANGEMENTS have been made
by the S Paul, Mankato and Still
water Associations—forming, as
St. Paul Dispatch puts it, the "Min
nesota Quadrilateral" (?)—for tbe
opening of the sporting season of

16,000 for three races—the first to

It would seem as though Members of
Congress, nettled by thedeserved strict
ures madeby thepresson many of their
acts,were determined to venttheir petty
spite upon newspapers whenever oppor
tunity offered. A year ago a law was
passed compelling publishers to pre
pay postage on their publications,
thus requiring them to do for the
government what its own officials had
failed in doing—collect its postage.
Under this law publishers had either
to add the amount of the postage to
the price of subscription or pay it out
of their own pockets, and in the form
er case to make good the failure oi
any subscriber to remit the postage.
They had to assume all the risk the
government took none. They are re
quired, also, to pay postage on their
exchanges. These provisions of the
law were generally submitted to with
tolerably good grace, as it was urged
that they were demanded by the ne
cessities of the Post-office Department
and the condition of the treasury, and
newspaper publishers are, as a class,
patriotic and self-deny
ing. A slight sugar-coating was giv
en the bill by abolishing the franking
privilege, thus placing Members of
Congress on a level with every other
citizen in the matter of paying post
But, at Its last session, Congress
rubbed off the sugar-coating by re
storing the franking privilege,' at
least in part, and gave the newspaper
publishers another cut by doubling,
the postage on transieut papers, proof
sheets, posters and all matter includ
ed in the third class, which, in
is as follows: •-•:,•
"All pamphlets, occasional publications,
ines, hand bills,
rected proof-sheets, maps, prints, engrav
ings, blanks, flexible patterns, articles of
merchandise, sample cards, phonographic
paper, letter envelopes, postal envelopes
and wrappers, cards, plain add ornamental
paper, phonographic representations of dil
lerent types seeds, cuttings, bulbs, roots
The price, which bad been one cent
lor every two ounces, was made one
cent per ounce. This increase will be
felt not only by publishers and print
ers, but by every person who sends
a paper or a magazine to a friend, or
who sends small packages to be
carried in the mails, The increase is
said to have been secured through the
lobby influence, as it is directly in the
interests of, the express companies,
from whose exorbitant charges the
law asit previously stood had afforded
much relief. **.
It wHl take Congress a long time
to "get even" with the press in this
way. In order to pass the bill, the
Republican majority had to violate
two pledges made in the last national
platform of the party—one demand
ing the entire repeal of Jhe franking
privilege and one to secure cheaper
postage for the people.

We take the following extracts
from an able and well-considered ar
ticle on the above subject in the Lake
"There is no doubt but the State
blundered a few years ago and legis
lated at least ten years ahead of her
real necessities, in establishing the two
additional Normal Schools, besides
the one at Winona but we do net
regard that as a sufficient reason to
justify the disposition so apparent in
the last two Legislatures to cripple
and impair, if not abolish them entire
ly, by refusing to grant them needed
aid and sustenance that they may the
more efficiently do the work they are
to perform in educating
teachers for our public schools. In
common with others, we regretted to
see the vote of our respected Senator
recorded with the opponents of these
"The plea of their expense, so often
urged, is no justification for seeking
to abolish them. An intelligent citi
zenship, and a citizenship seeking ev
ery means to attain intelligence in its
best forms, is not apt to weigh the
value of educational privileges in the
same scale with questions of a stinted
economy. Normal schools have been
thoroughly tried and.the fact that
they have had for years the entire ap
of the best educators of
land as directly tending tb develop
and improve the central feature of
our educational system—THE PUBLIC
SCHOOL—is sufficient for all practical
purposes, and should hide paltry con
siderations affecting their welfare from
sight and hearing.

any sympathy with the raid that has
been made for the last two years on
the Normal Schools—a fact we have
noted on previous occasions when

—It is a notable thing that the
Judges of England, with one or two
exceptions, unite in sustaining flog
ging as a punishment for offenses to
which it is now applied, and many of
them favor its extension to cases of
violent assault. There is certainly
more fitness in its application to the
last-named offenses than for petty
larceny. It is poor satisfaction, in
adequate punishment, and no deter
ment whatever to impose au insignifi
cant fine on a brute who has first in
sulted and then knocked down and
beaten a woman, or a man physically
weaker than himself. The aggravated
Cases of assault which occur every
day in English and American cities
fully account for the recommendation
that flogging be substituted for fine
a punishment, which has been
made by such men as Chief Justice
Cockburn and Justices Blackburn,
Mellor, and Lush. There is no other
punishment that would fully meet
the case of the ruffian who insulted
and struck a lady in a State street
horse-car a few nights since, with no
conductor or employe of the company
to defend her. At all events, it will
be interesting to note the influence
of flogging on this class of offenses if
it shall be applied in England.—Chi
done in the
and in the very best manner, at reasonable rates.
