The North Pacific Railroad—Construction-
Management—Complications and Obliga
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
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
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 :
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
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

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.
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,
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.
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.
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.
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
“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
“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

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.—
