Five years ago the Union Pncitic railroad
had just been commenced. Even at that
late date the enterprise was looked upon
somewhat dubiously by the mass of the
American people. The idea of bridging
the va't plains of tne West with the rail
way was one not easily entertained. The
region seemed too wild and sterile ; the line
of road 100 long and isolated ; and the ben
efits of such a highway too remote ind un
defined to warrant its construction. Even
the bold spirit- who saw the necessity and
feasibility of such a road were far enough
under the influence of the popular ideas on
the subject, to lead them to demand the
special backing of the I. idled States gov
ernment, and nearly double the time found
necess try tor its actual construction, and
then no one company could assume the
building of the entire line, but the enor
mous wotk was divided between two pow
erful corporations.
\ et no sooner had the Union Pacific road
advanced far enough to make its comple
tion a manifest certainty than, like the
Ocean Cable <m its completion, it ceased
to be regarded as a wonder and began as
an accepted fact to haw its proper influ
ence on the business interests of the nation.
And this influence has been in full propor
tion to the greatness of the enterprise. It
has revolutionized American id a< concern
ing railroad building; through dues; favor
able connections; str light routes, and fast
It is not yet two years since the last
spike of the Inion Pacific was driven, and
the Northern Pacific Ini' alrea iy reached
the .Mississippi, while tiie Southern Pacific
has ju't been chartered and munificently
< ndowed by the government of the United
States, and will soon be commenced. Each
of these three trunk lines of a continent at
tracts to il<elf a grand railroad system
from the region, or continental belt of
country that is naturally liibutary t>> it*
W e at the head of Lake Superior can be
gin to see west, and south, ami ea>l of n
the first stages in the forming of the vast
system that shall be subordinate to the
Northern Pacific railway, and the date <d
the completion of that sy-tem in its di et
lines can be determined approximate!) by
considering the probable tune required to
1 nild the Northern Pacific horn the Mi- >i--
sippi river to Puget Sound. We shall n*t
err m.ny months in naming M iy 16T4, a>
the outside limit of the time re quired to
construct the Northern Pacific road com
plete tiom Lake Superior to the Pacific
lint the tributary lines, especia ly those
forming the s\stem centering at the east rn
terminus, will hasten to p* rflet their con
nections at a much earlier period than
that. Pacific railroads are no longer an
ox per 1 men ■. and. taught by observation of
the pasi, railroad managers will not wait
till this one completed before endeavor
ing to have their lines, that are now eon
t jl td or commenced, in lull running
or !e , an I r ady to give and receive their
share ot the continental trade that will at
- nee j our ov> r the National Gr ind Trunk
when its last spike has been driven home.
And there are other reasons that will
urge 'tihs and ary lines to a speedy comple
tion among which are, the desirableness of
an early connection with the lied river
valley, now soon to be reached, and the ne
cessity of outstripping rivals in the race, of
which there are or will be a large number.
Asa consequence we may reasonably
expect that the years l-7_, and ISTa, (if
not the present one) will devclope an
amount of railroad building in the stales of
Wis-ou sin and Minnesota to which there
has been no parallel heretofore. Lisa safe
assertion that the next five years will do
fir more toward the rapid building up of
the north* rn tier of si tes ami territories
than has been accomplished in the tier trib
utary to the Union Pacific during the last
five years, and that the centenary of Amer
ican Independence will behold a great
West that our boldest orators did not
dream of a single generation ago. More i
now accomplished in a single year tii ii de
cades were wont to witness.
The day of railroad inactivity around the
iioa 1 of Lake Superior has gone forever.
Those of our citizens who have spent their
fifteen years on Lake Superior waiting for
a railroad will not have another fifteen to
wait, nor another ton, nor another five.
With the Northern Pacific itself complete
in three years, and the chief lines of its
eastern -tributary system necessitated to
make their connections here inside of that
i ’ l l, we may well congratulate ourselves
on the dawn of better days.
VOL. 1.
Xo 'man can scan the general outlook ot
affairs from this point without feeling that
the long years of indefinite waiting are
p issed, and that the magnitude of events
in the railway world at large; the special
attention of railway enterprise directed to
this quarter; and the sharp necessities of
commercial competition arc compelling an
immediate recognition of the importance of
ihis site for a great city at the western end
of Lake Superior.
And all must feel that if our resident and
non-resident property owners do but half
their duty in the premises, the coming rail
way system of the Northwest cannot fail
to intersect the great Northern Pacific at
this point, by three years from this date at
the very farthest.
Kverv true friend of Superior then, com
prehending the magnitude of the prize, and
the ea>e with which the most ordinary labor .
will ensure it to this place against all oppo
site-!), will see to it that the very slight or |
ganized effort which m*y be necessary to
put our affairs on an immediate working
ia>is, be not hindered by any fault or neg
ligence on his part.
President Thiers, Jules Favre, and the
fifteen members of the Consultation Com
mittee have agreed to and signed the fol
lowing c millions of peace: The cession
of Al>ace and Metz; Belfort to be restored
to French; the payment of a war indemni
ty of $l,nOO,000.000; a portion of French
territory, with some fortified towns like Se
dan, to remain in possession of the Germans
until the above two conditions have been
t-ompi ed with.
This second highway across the conti
nent is now in fall process of construction.
L ist July contracts were let for the building
of the Eastern division, reaching across the
State of Minnesota from the head of Lake
Sup nor, 2-fu miles to the crossing of the
lied river of the North. \V itli several
thousand men employed, the grading on
this seCtio" is last approaching completion,
and the iron is being lild at the rate ot
one to two miles a day In the meantime
engineer*; arc Inca ’mg tbo •>>!.> westward
through central Dakota; preparations, are
completed for the commencement ot work
at tiie Pacific end nevt spring, and lh re
after the work ot construe ion will be pros
ecuted from both extremities toward the
ceu ire.
In addition to this, the Northern Pacific
Company have recently purchased, and
practically consolidated wiihth irown line
the St. Paul and Pacific Railioad, embra
cing sonn* 300 miles of finished road in
Minnesota on which a prosperous business
is already doing. This purchase removes
all rivalry between conflicting interests,
and practically makes St Paul one termin
us ot the great Northern road. The
Non hern Pacific Railroad system is cer
t iinly assuming a business-like form, and
coinpreiiensive proportions. Obviously its
projectors do not intend 10 build a single
trunk road from East 10 \\ est and then
wait lor a profitable traffic to come to it.
On the contrary, the} are at the outset se
curing such connections and alliances with
the chief fines of water communication, and
with the railroad system ot the Atlantic anfi
Pacific States, as cannot tail to bring to
it, in addition to its local business, a large
and increasing share ot the carrying trade
between ocean and ocean. At the head of
L ike Superior one arm meets the commerce
of the Lakes and the St. Lawrence; at Si.
Lawrence; at St. Paul the other eastern
arm connects with the commerce ot the
Mis'i.-sippi river and its tributaries, and
with th ailroads of the central and east
ern State s, concentrating at Chic igo. Those
two arms will unite in \\ estern Minnesota.
From the point of junction a third branch
will extend to Pembina on the British bor
der, and the trunk line will traverse central
Dakota, and follow the now famous \ el
lowstone valley through Montana Near
tic boundary of Idaho the road will again
branch —one branch following down the
valley of the Columbia to tide water at
Portland, Oregon; the other striking di
rectly across the C ase ide range to the mam
terminus on Puget Sound. A north and
south blanch will also connect the Puget
Sound terminus with that at Portland. At
the alter point connection is made with
the coast lines of road now building South
ward through Or gmi and California. Both
at Portland and Puget Sound the road will
tap the coastwise an I foreign trade of the
Pacific Ocean.
The chief advantages peculiar to the
N Tthern Paeitic route are believed to be
these: 1. It reduces the distance between
the lakes and the Pacific Ocean some 600
miles. ‘2. It lessens the distance between
New York and the Paciti • by water and
fail to the >ame extent. 3. It lessens the
distance between London and Chinese
ports by the trans-eonliuental route at least
1, tUO miles. 4. It traverses a belt of States
ad Tenitories admirably adapted by le -
tihty of’soil, m id ness of temperature, and
equal distribution of moisture, to profi able
agriculture, o. I elevation in the moun
tain region’is 3,000 feet less than that of
other lines, resulting in a diminished snow
lad, a mil l climate, and far easier gr adieu is.
6. At convenient intervals i: ntei 'eets nu
nier >u> na\ gio.e s' reams —such a- tue Co
la ai >ia, the C >wii,/., the VmoW' one, he
Missouri, the lied, and the Mississippi—
which drain a vast region, and will serve
as feeders to the road. 7. It will partake
of tne character of an international route,
permanently controlling the carrying trade
ot British America, and rendering the im
portant colonies north of the boundary, and
we't of Lake Superior, commercially trib
utary to our Northern States.
Already it is stated that settlers are rap
idly crowding t * the line of the Northern
Pacific road in the Now Northwest, and
judging from what is known of the plans
adopted for promoting the settlement and
development, through emigration and colo
nization, of the belt of the States and Ter
ritories tributary to the line —there would
seem to be no doubt chat the corporation
upon which the Government has'coftferfen
tins great trust, is determined to make the
cuteiprise not only financially sound, but
greatly and permanently beneficial to the
whole country. With its munificent en
dowment of fertile lands, with the natural
advantages this route undoubtedly enjoys,
and with the far-sighted policy already in
augurated, a great commurcial project
could hardly start under better auspices or
with greater assurance of success.

Editor Superior Times—
Dear Sir: A few Sabbaths sinee, attending church
at the Music Hall, I listened to a’ discourse from the
| Rev. W. R. Alger delivered to a congregation of not
i less than three thousand souls. *
He took for his subject " Local Attachments ” I
thought no Christian could have taken any exception
to his remarks, and coincided with him when he said
in effect, that many persons at the present time ap
peared to teach and practice-religion with a view to
fitting them to live a life lie eaf'ter about which they
necessarily knew comparatively little, rather than as a
means of promoting their happite ss and well being
while here. In common with a portion of the audi
ence we remained after the service listening to the
; • which you are aware is the largi st in America.
I mentioned in a former letter that a U. 8. vessel
would be loaded with provisions donated by the citi
zens and despatched to France. The Wor
cester having been furnished by the Government lor
that purpose is now taking in her cargo. It* consists
in part of B,oou barrels of mdse, mostly flour. Some
*75,000 lias been already raised in this city. The
New V >rk subscriptions reach about *l' v on. Other
large cities, including Duluth, Philadelphia and Chica
go, are yet to be heard from

friend we arrived upon th“ fe.-tivc scene, and soon
concluded that our friend’s horse could gel over the
ground at a fair rate of speed. Altogether it was a
most enjoyable and exciting occasion.
A certain th grec of timidity is usually experienced
by those who like rny-Hf have not been much accus

run-away teams and inexperienced drivers is consider

visiting the several hotels in the vicinity where “ flip’?
and several other New England, specialities are dis

While doing the thing about right as we imagined,
two teams came thundering down the course upsetting
a third and throwing the four of us into great confu

an "Accident Insurance Policy” (he never having been
solicited by the urbane agent at Superior to take out
one). What with ladies shrieking, horses prancing,
and drivers calling on strung ts, we were seized with
a singular hallucination and imagined we were driving

Conundrums for the Sexes,— For the
girls: Could you love a mm who wore
false hair on his head w hen he had enough
ot his own? Who painted Ids face and
improved his form as,you improve (?)
yours? \\ ho pinched Ids feet with small
shoes, his hands with small gloves, his
waist with corsets; and then, as if he had
not already deformed himself enough, tied
a huge bustle on his back, and thrust liny
mountains of wire into his bosom?
For the boys; Could you I >ve a girl who
defiled her month with tobacco and loaded
the air with fumes ot cigars? Who stag
gered home several times a week the worse
for liquor? Who indulged in fast horses,
bet high at races, and swaggered around
the streets with questionable companions?
Fifty-Three Sundays.—There will be
fifty-three Sundays this year, and only fifty
two weejes. The reason tor this is that the
year came in on Sunday and will go out on
Sunday, and as there are hut three Ini’ dred
and sixty-four days in fifty-two weeks, we
have a surplus of time equal to one day and
six hours each year; consequently, the ex
tra day will terminate this year on Sunday
instead of Saturday, as would naturally oc
cur were there only 3t>4 days in a year.
The extra hoars gain in the calendar *r<on
year to year until and becomes necessary to
add another day to the year. This occurs
every lour years according to the measure
ment ot time, anil is added to the days in
February, which i< noted as having twenty'
nine days that year. This, you are well
aware, is called L< np year, and we have no
reason to give for the origin of the name,
unless that it is on account of judging the
accumulation ot extra hours and min
utes ot time for the four successive years.
Buv You a Home— Every laboring man
should buy himself a town log get that paid
for, and then work to make the necessary
improvements. A little here and a lit h*
there will m due time produce you a home
of your own, and place you out of the land
lord’s grasp; remember that fifty dollars a
year saved in rent, will in a very few years
pay for your home, and the m >nev it costs
you to move and shift about, without any
loss of furniture and time, p iy the interest
on a five hundred dollar judgment agai> -t
your property, until you can gradually re
duce ii to nothing. You can ai buv that
way —why do y. u not risk it? If you fail
you are no wor-e off—if you succeed, as
any careful man is -nre to do, you have
made a home and es 1 iblished a basis equal
to many another’s which will start you in
bu-ine ■ s.

ot the father or mother have kept hint from
i hard work; if another always helped out at
j the end of his row; if, instead oft kino his
turn it; pitching off, he moved away all t
| time-—in short, if what was light always fell
to him, and what was light always fell to
him, and what was heavy about the same
work to someone eUe; if he has been per
mitted to shirk till shirking has become a
habit—unless a miracle is wrought, lus life
w ill^ be a failure, and the blame will not be
half so much his as that of weak, foolish
| On the other hand, if a boy has been
brought up to do his part, never allowed to

parents, as they hid him good-hye may dis
miss their tears, ilis life will not be a busi
ness failure. The elements of success are
his, and at some time and in some way, the
world will recognize his capacity.
Take another point. .Money is the object
ot the world s pursuit. It is a legitimate
j object. It gives bread and clothing, and
homes and comfort. The world has not
