seldom they meet the better will be

properly attributable to the fact that
he has not been in the habit of at
tending the meetings of the Associa
tion. There has been no "bamming"

He regrets that he has not been able

would give them a voice in the man
agement of our State institutions—

blind, the hospital for the insane and

The Governor is unable to agree
with the Superintendent of Public
Instruction in his animadversions up
the act of 1875, by which it was
in substance provided that an annual
tax of one mill on the amount of as
sessment shall be levied, and when
collected distributed by giving to
each school district the amount of
tax collected in that district. He
thinks this is right, and that there is
no good reason why the cities should
be compelled to contributetothe sup
port of the rural schools. He agrees
with the Superintendent in the opus
ion that the income arising from the
lease or sale of the school lands
should be distributed to the different
townships throughout the State in
proportion to the number of scholars
in each township between the ages of
five and twenty-one years, as provid
ed in the constitution, and notin pro
portion to the number of persons be
tween theages of five and twenty-one
yean as required by the statutes.
The word "scholars" has a definite
meaning, more limited than the word
"persons" and was doubtless used by
the framers of the constitution with
a view to precision. The primary
definition of the word "scholar" is
"one who learns of a teacher." It is
particulary obvious that there must
be in every community many persons
who are not described by any defi
nition of which the word "scholar"
is susceptible. And he has come to
the conclusion with the Superin
tendent that the townships are en
titled to this money upon the basis of
scholars in the public schools, and
not pupils in all schools.
The University of Minnesota has
made substantial progress during the
year. There are now two hundred
and thirty-seven students in attend
ance. By the construction of new
buildings and the important acquisi
tion of labratory, geological cabinet,
and other instruments of instruction,
the facilities of the University have
been very much increased. The Re
gents report that about thirty-one
sections of salt spring lands are due
to this State from the United: States
under the act by which• Minnesota
was admitted into the Union, and
they recommend that the Legislature
memorialize Congress for leave to
make selections of this quantity of
land. The University has still 149,
874 acres of unsold land, and a pro
ductive fund of $246,648. He
again urges that the town and city

The report of the Commissioner of
Statistics exhibits the progress of
agriculture for twenty-five years.
When the territory of Minneapolis
was organized in 1849 its population
was 4,057. In 1850 there were' only
157 farms, comprising about 3,000
acres,fromwhich were produced 1,
400 bushels of wheat, 6,000 bus. of
corn, and 16,000 bus. of oats. A
quarter of a century has worked
wonderful changes. Our population
is now 597,389 the number of til
led acres is 2,816,423. From these
the production in 1875 was 31,475,
000 bushels of wheat, 15,775,000
bushels of oats and 9,500,000 bushels
of corn. In ten years the. population

surveyed acres are 60,000 farms, of
which, as above stated, 2,816,413
acres are under tillage, from which
have been produced during the past

Minnesota is now in the eighteenth

This subject is earnestly commended
by the Governor to the consideration
of the Legislature.
He suggests that a committee be
appointed to confer with the authori
ties of Wisconsin with a view to the
amicable settlement of the suit ofthat
State atrainst Duluth in regard to
theship canal across Minnesota Point.

shall again be subject to\avage.

The Governor again animadverts
upon the defects of the statutes re
lating to the punishment for the
crime of murder, whereby it is left
to thejury to determine whether the
culprit shall suffer death. Historic
al illustrations drawn from the official
records of the last year are produced
to provethe imperfections of the'stat
ute, and he urges the Legislature to
soamend it that it will not delegate a
power of option to the caprices, the
obstinacy, the lack of judgment or
the false humanity of the panel.
Gov. Davis concludes his message
with an elaborate presentation of the
old railroad bond question, suggesting
the example of the Geneva court of
arbitration. He says: If aboard
of commissioners composed of men
of or not of this State, eminent for
Integrity and judicial wisdom, could
be invested with jurisdiction to hear
and determine the questions involved,
by a consideration of every equity,
legal or moral, existing on either side
of the controversy, it cannot be pre
sumed that our people would hesitate
to perform theaward.
The message opens with a brief
reference to the unexampled progress
of Minnesota, during the pest quar
ter of a century, and then passes to
a consideration of the evils of a- re
dundant currency which has caused
an unwarranted expansion of credit
and an extravagance in business and
household affairs, which, if persisted
in, can lead to but one result.
The continued increase of the in
debtedness of counties and towns and
cities suggests a proposal for a con
stitutional limitation of the total
accumulation of local debt, for any
and. all purposes,, similar to that
which now restricts debt in aid of
railroads only.
He advises a rigid retrenchment
of public expenses, especially in the
more general conduct of the affairs
of the State, and as a practical step
in that direction suggests an abbrevi
ation of the length of the sessions of
the Legislature. He is of the opin
ion that a session of forty days would
be found sufficient A constitutional
.amendment providing for a specified
annual salary for members in lieu of
the present per. diem, or an amend
ment providing for biennial sessions
would meet with his approval. A
considerable curtailment of expendi
tures could be made by reducing the
amount of public printing done, es
pecially in the way of "executive
documents." A further retrenchment
might be made by a consolidation of
some of the existing State offices.
The office of Railroad Commission
er should either be abolished or its
powers so enlarged as to subserve a
more obvious public use than it does

The Governor is of the opinion
that, in making the new apportion
ment, a numerical reduction of both
bouses of the Legislature might be
The receipts of the State from
railroad earnings fell about $23,000
short of the year before, and. the tax

and other evidences of the resources
and attractions of pur State will be
so extraordinary that to neglect it
will be, in his opinion, a grave mis
take. He therefore recommends such
prompt and fit action on the part of
the Legislature as will secure the end
The Governor presents forcibly the
importance of greater attention to
the encouragement of immigration.
A thorough revision and wide circula
tion of the State Immigration-pam
phlet would provide an, effective aid
toward the desired purpose.
The vital importance of the subject
of tree culture is urged, and it is rec
ommendedthatCongress bememorial
ised to so amend thetimberact to in
sure a practical result to its plainly
beneficent intention.
He argues in favor of such an
amendment of the present law relat
ing to trials for murder as shall in
flict a capital punishment for a capit

property is recommended. Also the

In the consideration of the trans
portation question, while the highest
judicial authorities of the State have
asserted the right of the Legislature
to regulate the tariff rates of rail
roads,' thus placing the corrective
power within the reach of the peo
ple, he counsels mutual forbearance,
there being an actual identitybetween
the people and the railroads.
The Legislature is recommended to
memorialize Congress to extend the
time of the land grant of the North
ern Pacific railroad, which will ex
pire in 1877.
The improvement of the Mississip
pi and the Minnesota rivers, and of
the Fox and Wisconsin, and the
connecting of the waters of the
Mississippi with those of the great
lakes by a canal, is commended to
the attention of the Legislature.
The necessity for fostering the agri
cultural interests of the State re

for legislation for the protection of

Church, and that the necessary ar

by Mrs. Moulton, and the matter was

All of thechurches invited by Mrs.

Dear Sir.—I had suffered from Catarrh
in an aggravated form for about twelve
years and for several yean from Bronchi
cal trouble. Triedmany doctors and things
with no lasting benefit. In May,,1872, be
coming nearly worn out with excessive
editorial labors on a paper in New York
City, I was attacked with bronchitis in a
severe form, suffering almost a total loss of
voice. I returned homehere, but had been
homeonly two weeks when I was complete
ly prostrated with hemorrhage from the
lungs, having Some seven spells within two
weeks, and three inside of nine days. In
the Septemberfollowing,I improved suffi
ciently to be able to be about, though, in a
very feeble state.' My bronchial trouble
remained and the catarrh was ten-fold
worse than before. Every effort for relief
seemed fruitless. I seemed to be losing
ground daily. I continued in this feeble
state, raising blood almostdaily, untilabout
thefirstof March '73, when I became so
bad as to be entirely confined to the house,
A friend suggested your remedies. But I
was extremely skeptical that they woulddo*
me no good, as I had lost all heart in rem
edies, and began to look upon medicine and
doctors with disgust. However, I obtained
one of your circulars,.and read it carefully,
from which I came to. the conclusion that
you understood your business, at least. I
finally obtained a quantity of Dr. Sage's
Catarrh Remedy, your Medical Discovery
and Pellets, and commenced their vigor
ous use according to directions. To my
surprise, I soon .began to improve. The
Discovery and Pellets, in a short time,
brought out a severe eruption, which
continued for several weeks. I felt much
better, my appetite improved, and I gained
strength and flesh. In three months every
vestige of the catarrh was gone, the bron
chitis had nearly disappeared, had no
cough whatever and I entirely ceased to
raise blood, and, contrary to the expect*- CMI^MU"
tion of some of my friends, the cure has I
remained permanent. I have had no wj£A
more hemorrhages from the lungs, and am
entirely free from catarrh, from which I
had suffered so much and so long. The
debt of gratitude I owe for the blessing I
have received at your hands, knows no
bounds. I am thoroughly satisfied, from
my experience, that your medicines Will
matter the wentformsof that odious dis
ease catarrh, as well as throat and. lung
diseases. I have recommended them to
Terr many and shall ever speak In their
praise. Gratefully yours.

The Mark LaneEtprtoi weekly re.
view of the grain trade says: "In
the Paris market reports of the re
appearance of frost arrested the
downward "tendency of prices but
trade is stagnant, while in several
provincial markets quotations are a
shilling lower, Some places in Hol
land, Belgium and Germany have
been in sympathy but nowhere has
there been a material reduction ow
ing to the discontent of growers with
present rates. St. Petersburg is un
changed, and Odessa is closed, so
that shipments from both places must
cease for some time. In Adelaide,
Australia, whence we were recently
led to expect large shipments, prices
have suddenly risen a shilling per
quarter, and there is great difficulty
in. securing whole quantities."
