THE SUPERIOR TIMES,
PUBLISHED AT HVrEIIIOR , DOUGLAS CO., WISCONSIN BY THE SUPERIOR TIKES PRINTING CO. TERMS: - - $2.50 Pku Annum. The North Pacific Railroad—Construction- Management—Complications and Obliga tions. An overland communication between the Great Lakes and the North Pacific Ocean lias been mooted, advocated and demanded constantly since the day of John Jacob Astor to the present time, and is now view ed with greater solicitude by the civiliza tion of the north temperate zone, and com merce, than any war operations on the little continent between a William and a Louis. In fact one of the questions now before the fund dealers, is shall we lend money to Pru-sia and France to aid in killing French men and Germans and stop the North Pa sustain tnc latter and merely fur nish lint and cease to shed blood? The European war, checking the easy fund market, has called out investigation into the management and construction of this railway, both by the Directory and populace; all we know of the former is that they have inaugurated a system of Japan ese espionage upon each other; that each other of the directors, engineers, contract ors and rinr/s with all his cousins and co zens is in great consternation, and, like the bat afraid of daylight. Put with what the populace say and think we are better ac quainted. And first, from personal observation and undeniable information, it is well known fiat a practicable railroad route exists within ten miles of an air line from the head ot Lake Superior, to Georgetown on Red River; and more, an air line from the head of Lake Superior to the North bend of the Mis'onri River, a fixed locality on the route, | passes so near to Georgetown that the di rcetness of the line cannot be questioned when diverted through the latter place. I nder this knowledge of facts the intelli gent “populace” of this region were not only surprised hut indignant to learn that under the dictation of town site rings, land gobbling cliques or power holder's cousins —cozens, the route was being deflected a hundred miles south of the legit imate track to subserve the cliques and ring-' cozened interests; be these exple tives true or not the deflection charged is m vertheless patent. The “populace” of this region, educated in woods craft and the constitution, flight-\ bj believe that the North Pacific Railroad Company is composed of a few gentlemen, however wealthy in side pockets are entir *ly deficient in both capital and credit to build and equip the road; hence Con gress, knowing as much, at least, as the populace, and relying upon the honesty of their corporations —whom congress, cre ated, did pledge of the property of the peo ple twenty-five thousand acres of selected lands for each and every mile of railway hoiuztly constructed upon the “people’s line” of the North Pacific Railway route. And in consideration ot the solid character of the corporators, stockholders and their accredited reputation, Congress and Gen. Grant authorized the gentlemanly corpora tors, directors and company to increase American debentures a hundred millions; that is to say congress and (lie President permit and desire that Hamburg, London and Amsterdam's gold holders shall cash the North Pacific Company’s bonds secured by mortgage upon the American people’s lands, lands which our common treasury lias acquired by treaties and annuities. The populace, therefore, claim and main tain that the corporators, president, direc tors, engineers and contractors are but the creatures of the exponent, congress; and by this truth the Company must govern their actions and beware of the espionage of the people much more than that of the ring tickle-me and I tickle-you espionage of •lapanese watchers. In view of the above most tenable asser tions of right, law, and composition we add for the consideration of the rings, land, town site, contractors a,\u] financial agents, a few tacts ami the inevitable legal and un avoidable results. The North Pacific Company ami rings have, through the aid ami countenance of Minnesota’s St. Paul and Lake Superior Railroad Company, attempted to make their final and lor all-time-terminus on a quarter section ot town lots, some seven miles above the mouth or entry of the St. Louis river; this lower seven miles of the St. Louis widens out a mile wide and is the llaubou of and at the western-most end of the Great Lakes—equally \\ isconsin’s and Minnesota’s. The North Pacific Company unadvisedly or through composition In land rings, have become a party in a pro ject to cut a canal, at the head of the above seven miles, through to the open Lake, by which the common Harbor of the tno THE SUPERIOR TIMES. VOL. 1. Stales, Wisconsin and 31 nnesota, will be secured to the latter State alone. The legal right to cut this canal is before the Courts of Minnesota between her own citizens and one of her own corporations, the result of which may he private dam ages only; but the inter-State right to di vert a ;/ill of St. Louis river water by other than the natural channel is being met by the strong arm of the 1 nion’s paramount power, judicial and legislative. The idea that a creature of Congress, with capital and credit only, from the com mon domain and authority of its creator, should dare to thus divert, from mate ncr natural and uniTenlable rights and destroy the best of harbors, is too foolish to be controverted; yet this idea is in the notion of their subordinates, and we give out this article more in friendship to all concerned than in envy. The North Pacific Directory, workers, financial, and other agencies need take no warning from us, for we are well assured that their own intestate quarrels will des troy their unlawful designs without exter nal effort. “Duluth as a Harbor.” Every day is demonstrating more and more the fact that Uulutii lias now, with the expenditure already made of loss than sluO,u(H) and the construction of only 60D feet of Breakwater, “a Harbor"’—such an one now as the expenditure of a million would not make for Superior—such an one now that even money can not make at the Entry into the Bay of Superior. * * * ' * * Indeed there arc plenty of Lake Captains who know, and who will testify, that the extension of our present Breakwater out even 600 feet further, will make the Outer Harbor of Duluth a safer Harbor to make for in a storm than is possessed by Milwaukee, Chicago, Cleveland, or Buffalo. * ' * * * * * * When the Breakwater is extended only 600 feet fur ther the same width of entrance and sea-room will continue to he afforded to enable a vessel of any kind, without the employment of tugs, to get safely behind j its protection. We repeat the claim, that at neither Buffalo, Cleveland nor Chicago is there so good or so site a Harbor now, nor can one he made for the same expenditure, as at Duluth. Nay, more, that our Har bor as now contemplated and partly constructed will, ! when don -, cost less than either of the other harbors ! mentioned; and will be, in every way, vastly superior to at yof them. In short, that it will be a Harbor of Refuge which none of them can equal! As for the Entry to Superior, it is not worth the name of a Harbor and never can he during a gale. Money will make it accessible in good weather; noth ing more! Why Congress docs not bestow a good appropria tion for our Hatbor is simply because the matter is not or has not been fully brought to their attention — because they do not understand it. Duluth Harbor is a fixed fact now: its capacity de pend.- upon further expenditure. —Duluth Jfinncsotian, Oct. 29. We rush to the support (1) of the above with the following, which suggests a use for the “Outer Harbor” that probably has not occurred to the Mi nnesotian : “DULUTH AS AN TCE-TKAI’.” Every day it is becoming more and more a fact that Duluth will have next spring, with the expenditure already made of less than $lOO,OOO, and the construction of only 000 feet of Breakwater, an “Ice-Trap,” such a one now as the expenditure of a million would not make for Superior —such a one now that even money cannot make at the Entry into the Bay of Superior. Indeed there are plenty of Lake Captains who know and who will tc.-tify that the ex tension of the Breakwater out even GOO feet further will make the Outer Harbor of Duluth a nicer “ Ice-Trap” than is posses sed by Milwaukee, Cleveland, Buffalo or Superior. When the Breakwater is ex tended only GOO feet further the same width of entrance and sea room will continue to be afforded to enable ice-bergs of any size, without the employment of tugs, to get safely behind its protection. We repeat the statement that at neither Buffalo, Cleveland nor Chicago, is there so grand or so sale an Ice-Trap now, nor can one be made for the same expenditure tis at Duluth. In short that it will be a Tiouse of Refuge for lee which none ot them can equal! As for the Entry to Superior it is not worth the tame ot an “Ice-Trap,” and never will be till the St. Louis and Nemadji Rivers dry up. and some benevolent Phila delphian builds an Ice House out in the Lake in front of it. Why Congress does not bestow an ap propriation tor the Duluth “ Ice-Trap” is simply because the matter is not or has not been tally brought to their attention — in other words they “can't see it.” Duluth Harbor is a fixed tact now, but will be in a good deal worse tix next spring unless Congress “ appropriates” 500,uu0 acres of land to purchase cross-cut saws and ice hooks. We have an indistinct, dreamy recollec tion that we have seen the statement some where —perhaps in the Polk County Press —that the brothers “Sam” and “Hank” Fifield had started a paper at Bayfield. We may bo mistaken in all this, but think we ain’t! Again, if our memory serves us aright, we have, on one or two occasions, seen somewhere a reference to a locality called either the •‘Bloomer Block on the Foster lot,” or the “Foster lot on the Bloomer Block,” —wc don’t distinctly remember which I SUPERIOR, WISCONSIN, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 1870. WASHINGTON TERRITORY. ITS AGREEABLE CLIMATE—PLENTIFUL MESS OF CHOICE GAME—THE VAST MESS OF ITS RESOURCES. Special Correspondence of the Philadelphia Inquirer. Olympia, W. TANARUS., Sopt. 1, 1870. There is so much to be said about Puget Sound that I hardly know where to commence. 1. The summer climate is the-most invigorating and agreeable you can possibly imagine. While you in the East swelter in June, July and August, in the day time, and often endure hot and sultry nights, the days here are just warm enough to help the vegetation, but as soon as the sun sinks below the horizon it becomes cobl—delightfully so. There has been no night in the “ hot month of August” since I have been here that I did not sleep under two blankets. I am sure when the Northern Pacific Railroad is fiompjaMlLtkftHlMUto £0 every THlffsPiißWr* “ Atlantic grope win come out here and a couple of months on Puget Sound. They can sail along the waters of the lovliest sheet of water in the world, catch salmon, trout, or brook trout to their heart’s content, shoot blue grouse and rough grouse (pheasants) mqre than they can carry, and an occasional bear and deer. It is the best hunting and fishing ground that 1 have ever seen. Besides all this, you can enjoy a cool and invigorating climate, and In the distance behold sights of indescribable grandeur—Mounts Baker, Iu,OUO feet high; Rainier, 12,U(i0, and Adams, 9800 feet. You would never tire gazing at these noble peaks, lifting their heads into and above the clouds. Rainier absolutely looks as if you could almost throw a stone into its banks of snow, yet it is ninety miles distant. It is higher than JSt. Bernard, and rises Irom a plain, standing solitary and alone. The climate of San Francisco is so cold and fogv as to be disagreeable to all strangers ; here it is cool and bracing. TIMBER. 2. The timber is all it has been discribcd, and more than I expected. I think I am below the mark when I say there are 8000 square miles of timber lands or 5,000,000 acres, with an average of 10,000 feet to the acre, which would make 50,0n0,un0,000 feet of fir, pine and cedar. Before this could be cut off for the world’s consumption, anew grow th would spring up, for an old settler tells me a fir tree will in twenty vears grow- from a twig to a saw-log two or three feet in diameter, so that, in fact, the lumber can never be exhausted. Its plentifulness can be shown by the price here, *0 to $7 per thousand, worth, with you, £3O. FISH. 3. Fish. The codfish, halibut, salmon, smelt, trout, clams and crabs, are better than in the East; the oysters are good, though small in size, but are being improved—can be shoveled out by the half-bushel. 4. Most of the land that has no timber on it is best adapted to grazing, but even on the coast, west of the Cascade Range, cattle fatten and thrive better than 1 ever saw them do in any part of Pennsylvania. In the Valleys of the Skagit, Puyalup and Chehalis, there is bottom land varying from two to ten miles in width of exceeding richness, where farms are already opened and which are destined to maintain a large popula tion. The Skagit is navigable for steamers sixth miles; the valley is equal to the west branch of the Susquehanna, in Pennsylvania, in fertility, and five times as wide. This is one of several. East of the Cascade Range there is a great deal more arable land. FRUITS. 5. Fruits. All that lias been said of Puget Sound as a fruit growing region has been true. 1 never saw such large and luscious apples and pears; and the plums surpass anything you can imagine. Trees, often but little larger than a good walking-stick, will bear bush els of fruit —tw ice as much as you ever saw. Rasp berries, blackberries, cherries and strawberries grow in proportion. Strawberries are sweet and grow to an enormous size, fiequently as large as a hen’s egg. I have seen a tree of delicious-tasting plums—not prunes —any live of which, picked off at landom, weighed a pcuud. I put some of these monsters in ajar in alco hol to send you, hut they spoiled, and you will have to take my word for it. The fruits are all of excellent flavor and bear every year, not alternate years, so abun dantly that you have never seen half a crop ou a fruit tree and never will until you viset Puget Sound. COAL. I believe there is about as much bituminous coal in Washington Territory, on the Sound, as there is in Western Pennsylvania, and of about equal quality. The winter climate is milo. Roses in December — yes, in January too. A good deal of rain, but said not to be disagreeable. J. B. M. THE PINE FORESTS OF AMERICA INTERESTING FACTS IN THE LUMBER TRADE OF THE FUTURE. A writer in the St. Louis Republican gives the following valuable speculations in regard to the lumber production and trade of this country: “Ten years ago stnmpago in Maine on the Penobscot and Kennebec rivers was .xt what was considered a nominal value, from fifty cents to one dollar per thousand feet. When it can be obtained now, it is sold from seven to ten dollars. On the St. Croix river, Minnesota, stumpage was only titty cents to one dollar per thousand feet five years ago, now it averages from two dollars and fifty cents to five dollars and fifty. Nothing under the former figures is desju able. Pine lands can scarcely be found in government hands. It is gradually con centrating into the bands of lewer parties, and is most rapidly enhancing its value. There are parties who now number their lands in rash tracts. Messrs. Chapa an & Thorpe, of this a city, or the Eau Claire Lum ber Company, for instance, own 80,000 acres; Knapp, Stout & Cos., of Dubuque, now connected with the firm ot Loss ifc Walkup, of this city, own and control 100,- 000 or more acres, and several other par ties on the Wisconsin, Chippewa, St. Croix, and Upper Mississippi rivers and tributa ries, own and control troin ‘JO,OOO to 30,00 J each. The business, in fact, has assumed a very different phase from that often years ago, and all available or valuable pine lands are now private property, and are owned jin the main by men who appreciate their value, and who are fast clearing away the forests and sending the products to market. Now, with all this large concentration of lands and the heavy draft that has been made on the forest of pine in the last tew years it becomes a serious question to the man who will think what is to sustain this immense dralt for one of the most common necessaries of life, and a demand for which everv improvement in civilization is only increasing. While the object of those who control this large interest in monopolizing to a great extent the trade of the future will be more seriously felt when the heavy demand that is to come from Europe and prospectively that of Asia, the former of which is already drawing on us for sup plies. “The lumber trade of Michigan, Wis consin and Minnesota, for the year 1800, shows the amount cut as being 2,029,372,- 255 feet for the State of Michigan, and 317,400,000 feet for the State of Minnesota, and 904,000,000 feet for the State of Wis consin. This includes the lake shore and the whole State of Wisconsin, which here tofore has been difficult to get a report from. The toial amount cut in these States was 3,311,;]72,255 feet, and that to obtain this quantity there have been stripped 883,032 acres or 1,380 square miles of pine have beer removed. It is calculated that 4.- 00<,0u0 acres of land still remain unstrip peu in Michigan, which will yield 15,0u0,- OObjOOQ feet of lumber. While 3,u00,000 still standing in Wisconsin, which will yield 11,250,000, 000 feet, [A great proportion of this uncut pine is in this County, on the Neraadji and St. Croix Hirers and tributaries in Wisconsin. The St. Croix & Superior R. 11., when built, will pass through and open up one of the finest pine districts on the continent.— Editor Times,] and that which remain in Minnesota, taking the es timate of a tew years since of that which was surveyed and unexplored, after de ducting the amount cut the past few years, we find 3,030,000 acres to be the proper estimate of trees now standing which yield 32,262,50u,000 feet of lumber. This makes a total ot 15,630,000 acres of pine lands which remain standing in the above States, that will yield 58,612,500,000 feet of lum ber, and it is thought that fifteen or twen ty years will be required to cut and send to market the trees now standing. Thes figures now show the increased rate of consumption during the ’past year, and in dicate with what rapidity our forests can be cleared. Wc will take the older lumber States lor instance, which have surprised every inhabitant at the early disappearance of their white pine. The Maine forests have been so well stripped, that n G t a tree of old growth is to be seen in them. The white pine is represented only by saplings, which will not be of any service, as lumber, for years, and the most of the lumber they use now comes from Michigan. Twelve years ago New York was a great lumber State, and exported heavily the manufac tured qualities; while now her pine forests are exhaused and she has to rely on the lake regions of the West, by way of the Erie canal, and from Canada by Lake Champlain and the Champlain canal. Large qualities of hemlock and spruce are yet to be found in the northern counties of the State, which in part substitutes the pine, and railroads are piercing the wilderness in order to bring it to market. We have now reached a period when the demand for timber is rapidly on the increase, and the supply diminishing. Settlements, too, are approaching the treeless regions of the plains. “But of all timber the pine is one of the most common necessities; it enters more largely into use for general purposes than all others combined, and its preserva tion should interest every individual in the land. At the increased rate of consump tion, and the fearful inroads that are being made on our forests ot pine, the years will soon come when .Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin will he as destitute of this tim ber as M ame or New York. Storm Signals. —Sergeant A. W. Cox of Washington City, and of the new United States Storm Signal Corps, just organized “for the benefit of commerce,” and under “military control,” was around here a day or two since,with orders to remain at Du luth [the only station on Lake Superior] and report to the war Department by telegraph, and to the local pre*, all meteorological observat>°'M of approach, direction and force of storms: with the view to the construction in the future of Storm Maps, and of the adoption of Storm Signals for the guidance and safety of mariners. The system is to be extended throughout the Union. St. Paul is the other station in Minnesota. Observation will be taken in Duluth by Sergeant Cox “synchronus” with Washington time and with other sta itons, thrice a day—“one about 8 a. m., one about G p m., and one at midnight.” The reports from every station will be rapidly concentrated at Washington, and be im mediately puolished there, to serve in the nature of Storm Alarms. Sergeant Cox has leased rooms in Gould & Edmand’s new block, and will set his instruments and take observations from the roof of that building. His first observation will be taken November Ist. —Duluth J[ln nesotian.

Paul Perss. The Grand Ji ry System. —At the en suing election, the people of this State will vote upon the question whether the form i of indictment by Grand Jury, shall or shall not remaiii'in practice. Established forms, whether in law, relig ion, or social life, are slow to yield to | changed conditions, and they often remain, 1 not only alter their usefulness is past, but after they have become positively burden some and at variance with the purposes which they wore originated to serve. The Grand Jury system, devised in the early days ot England, when society was not fully organized, when customs were rude and laws were rigorous, operated then as a protection to the citizen against the unjust or malicious accusations of the olli cers of the King. But in our conditions of society, this mode ot proceedure is no longer necessary. The citizen does not need its protection, and the law does not need it to secure the ends of justice. The main objections to the Grand Jury are : Ist. It is cumbrous and expensive. 2nd. It sometimes operates to effect the very evil it was designed to prevent. 3d. Its deliberations are secret—a sort ot Star Chamber—repugnant to the feelings of the people. Several Slates have already done away with the Grand Jury mode ot indictment; let us add Wisconsin to the number.— TjO. Crosse Leader. ' P.
