MINN., THURSDAY SEPT. 26.1S78: POETRY. jlialied in the extreme southern part uf Lines in memory of Walter Kendall* fctate. Dear Walter, since thy manly voice I've heard And yet it seems a dreadful dream to-day That has our hearts With keenest an It rannot be that youthful ruddy form Lies cold and silent on yon hillside now, That I must wateh in vain for thy return, Never more, alas to gace upon thy brow. I'm listening oft with fond bewildered ear, In fancy hear thee in thy boyish play Imagination often brings thee near In roseate health, as when thoa we»t away. And is it true that thoa art gone fron earth Shall we behold thee in this life no more? Shall our lone home ne'er.echo to tfanr mirth? Ilast thou passed over to the farther shore? The faithful voice of memory says 'tis true The unused books—the little vacant room, And useless wardrobe ever meet my view. And ah this aching heart bespeak thy doom. And there's another broken household band Another sirickcn mother weeps with me A father dear who scarce can understand, God's ways so oft are clothed in mystery. How oft I see thee and thy tchoo.mate dear Going nobly forth a dear one's life to save With hearts brim full of boyhood's hopeful cheer, Going forth, alas! to meet a watery grave. And they are gone without one sweet good b-e, They've borne them to the wooded hill side tomb, And since that day of sudden anguish I Have passed, ah me! such dreadful hours of gloom. But while dismay and irk despair Must often to my bosom com#, I'll joy to know tbou ha*t no share Urief cannot reach thy distaut home. No longer ours to watch and teach, Or shield thee from temptation's might. Thou'rt where no calumny can reach, Or cast on thee her withering blight. Angels shall watch thy powers expand, And all thy teaching heavenly be, And I sbii.ll join thee in that land Where sister's gone, "to walk with thee." MOTHER. Sept. 25, 1878. The Minneapolis Wheat Ring. On. Monday last the St. Paul Cham her of commerce appointed a commit tee to investigate the fraudulent opera tions of the whe it ring, which is now tuyi ig wheat along the maiu line ot the St. Paul & Pacific railroad. The wheat rin*j is Paid to consist principal iy of meiiibeis of the Minneapolis Mil ler's association, in which W end C. Washburn are contriving spirits In reference to this matter the St. Paul Globe very jiitly says 4,Thiu»h the matter was not present- ed as political, the St Paul Chamber »f Commerce ueverihtles-s struck the key note of the Congressional, cam paign in this district yesterday. Mr IJ. B. llodge« performed a public ser vice in culling attention to the robber ies of the Minneapolis Millers associ ation, of which the Washburn tribe ire the leading and controlling spirits. The Globe has for some time been collecting information upon this Washburn g^fng of robbers, and can fully verify all that was stated in the (Miamber of Commerce. This ring is banded together to rob the farmers, and they do it as mercilessly as t!e hiphwaymatf. On the line of the St Paul & Pacific they hold the settler by the throat and arbitrarily and in famously reduce the grade of wheat below its proper standard. Not only that, they make a difference of from 15 to 20 cents per bushel in price be tween No. 2 and No. 3. and by grad ing as No. 3, wheat which actually is No. 2, the robbery becomes simply enormous. The man who, with his brother, refits the most by this plunder, is asking the people whom he is robbing to send him to Congress. Mr. Don* nelly has labored for years in the leg islature to protect the people from the Washburn gang of harpies, but the combination has heretofore been successful in preventing the people from securing this protection. They now have the opportunity to rebuke the man who holds them by the throat and at the same time send men to the legislature who will see that the bills which Mr. Donnelly has pressed in the past, become laws in the near future. The farmers of the Thir District will deserve to be robbed if they en dorse Bill Washburn, the Wheat Shy lock, at the polls." The Pioneer Press of yesterday Bays that the charges against the Minneap olis fliers' Association are false, that the said Association give higher price? for when than can be obtained trout any other source, aiidin fact, aston ishing as it may seem, "are uniformly paying much higher for wheat than the shipping prices," and that Wash* burn is not a member of the Associa tion anyhow. It forgets to state, how ever, that W Wahburn and Iiif brother are the heaviest mill owners in Minneapolis and draw larger profit.* from these frauds than any member of the Association. As long as be pockets the profits it in mighty thin to try to get hiui out of th* scrape on the plea that be is not a member ot tjic Association'. The Pioneer Press and the Dispatch improve every opportunity to take ex tracts from other papers detrimental to Donnelly, but we notice that nearly all of them are taken front papers that are published outside the Third dis« tricfc, and generally from papers pub* lion, I. Donnelly was present at the. Democratic county convention held in M'uheapolis on Monday last, and upon being unanimously called upon for a speech he responded with a stirring address an hour in length. Donnelly was there to 6ee what could be done toward uniting the Democratic and Greenback parties in Hennepin county, and be succeeded so well that even the Pioneer Press admit* that the Demo* cratic ticket stands a good chance of being elected, not admitting, however, that this is duet Donnelly's efforts. We procured a copy of the last is sue of the Banner, whieh its editor asserted was so badly printed that it was not fit for circulation, and which he accordingly refused to allow any body to see. Tho printing, as our readers are aware, was done by A. De Lacy Wood, Esq. in Sauk Rapids The copy before us is well printed and as free fiotn typographical errors as newspapers generally are. About the only noticeable features in the paper were that its editor bolts the nom ination of Donnelly for Congress, and proceeds to insult a cumber of the citizens of Morrison county. We learn, that he was owing Mr. Wood fr printing. But, as the Banner is dead, we do not wish to thrust its un savory remembrance before our read ers, and we shall from this date con sider the controversy closed. We have had our say. •k From the Braiuerd Tribune. Captaro Mahlou Black, the Demo cratic candidate for the office of State Auditor, served his country for four solid years in the army iu the late war, as a disabled limb will testify, where he earned the title he wears to day— lint of captain His personal merits 1 high standing as a citizen and a gentleman have twice carried him fill into the office of county auditor of Henne pin county, one of the strongest Re publican counties in the State, with rousing majorities over Republican competitors, and he stands to-day be fore the people of the State of Minne sota, for whose rights and whose in terests with those of the nation, he ri.sked hi* life, louuht and bled on the batile fi«ld—siaiols with a character unsullied, a record of hosor and integ rity. and the unquestioned ability te honorably and well the high office which he aspires—-asking their con fidence and support. A Minneapolis republican pro pounds the following questions in a letter to the St Paul Gl- be "Could you learn from Washburn •luring the campaign whether he in tends paying any or all of those labor ing men with whom he settled when he made an assignment, and when th«»y only realized from forty to fifty per cent on their summers wages, if elected Whose money did he spend to go to Europe aftar making an assignment, when many of his creditors realized but sixty per cent of their pay in lum ber at double price, and property at more thin it. was worth From the Cincinnati Star. The recenfcar festival of Jugger naut in India was a complete failure. The mighty idol moved along the high way in his imposing choriot as usual, and hosts of worshipers bowed before him in the old time adoration hut somehow they manifested an alacrity in getting out of the way of the wheel, which was not at all in keeping With the teachings of their traditions. It is quite probable in their intercoure with tbe English they have learned the absurdity of thus koeeling down to have their heads crushed b.y the massive wheels, and it seems likely that Juggernaut will soon be hauled off on his huge wagon and left to crumble away in some old shed like a cast-off stage coach of past genera tions» St. Paul Pioneer Press, Sept. 24. It will be remembered that by the Gilman bill which was passed by the 1 »i.-Iature of 1877, the governor is authorized, in certain contingencies, to select on the line of the Brainerd branch, and to sell for the benefit- of creditors 100.000 acres of 1 ind. In ac cordance with the provisions of the law Gov. PillBbury has appointed Mr L. I lodges to make the selection. One of the heaviest creditors for Whose bemfit these lands are to be set apart is the firm of De Graff & Co.. who constructed the road^h^d from Sauk Jttapids to Braiuerd IU 1873, and wh» have not been paid. Mr. Hodges Will leave this morning, and expects to be gone about nne month At Su Cloud be will take a team, and drive over tbf conntrv In Braiuerd.

Humad. flesh is sold in the market. Patents are killing aud selling their children their own existence. NEWS ITE3I8. The yellow fever is abating some what in the South. Bears are unusually numerous in all the timbered districts .of the State. Col. Wm S. King now controls a Minneapolis editorial department in Pioneer Press. From the St. Paul Dispatoh. Minnesota State Railroad bonds (re. pudiated) sold at the ^Marine Bank auctiou yesterday for 21 cents on the dollar. The Congregational Sunday school and the lodges in Brainerd "have con tributed seventyone dollars for the relief of the yellow fever sufferers in South. The Anti-Drive Wellcollecting com mittee in Minneapolis have raised sev eral hundred dollars for the purpose of carrying their case to the Supreme Court. A man at work for M. Spilane, Sen., ot Waseca, set fire to a stubble field which spread to Spilane's stacks of grain and hay and to his barn, con suming them all. From the St. Paul Dispatch. The skeleton of BilJ Chadwell, one of the Younger Brothers gang who was killed at NoTthfield, has been prop erly mounted and is in possession of a physician of Northfield, In Brookfield, Mass a barn took fire from matches igniting in the pocket of a coat that was left hanging on a peg where friction was caused by the coat swinging with the breeze. Many of our readers *ill remember Mr and Mrs. Mansfield, who were quite noted revival preachers in Min neapolis and other places about three years ago. Mrs. Mansfield died in Michigan a faw diy* ago. A little daughter of Mr Roscoe's living about ten miles south of Wade na, was bitten by a dog on Saturday last. The brute tore off the whole side of her face, and the piece could not be found. We sincerely trust some one has killed that dog. [Wade na Tribune. From the Sherburne County Star. Work was last week commenced on ths new engine house, which is to be loeated nearly opposite Nickerson's planing mill. The building is to be 70x20, and will be something.more of an (Ornament to tlie town than the old one was. The pump hoase will be a separate building, and the Water is to lie pumped up by a windmill. From the St. Paul Globe, Sept. 22. he coinmis.-ioti, composed of Gov. Pill-bury, the-attorney general and clerk of the supreme »urt, had under coiiHderaMon, yesterday, the contest ed claims in the Brainerd branch »t ter. A few minor cases are to be considered and adjusted, and a report is promised to be forthcoming in the near future. From the Sauk Centre Herald. Mr. J. II. How-ird discovered a bee tree iu the woods the other day—a big bee tree, and the bees were thick around. He took four men, two teams, wash boilers, buckets, pans and no end of other things, and went to cap ture the honey. After a great deal of hard labor, the tree was felled—the cavity opened, and what a sight greet ed tbe eyes of tho honey-'seekers At least a teacup full of beautiful hon ey, and. only six men to diyide it among.
