count in last week's issue, will be
found on 2nd page.
It makes a man's head swim to
read of the many minor, though
fatal, railroad accidents that are
continually happening.
A correspondent of the Pioneer
Press nominates our popular Lieut.
Governor, J. B. Wakefield, as the
proper successor of Gov. Pillsbury,
Not a bad suggestion.
Gov. Packard, of Louisiana, has
been nominated by the President to
be U. S. Consul at Liverpool. The
office is worth from $10,000 to $15,-
000 per annum.
The tax law passed last winter
provides that the tax levy in town
ships, for road and bridge purposes,
shall not exceed five mills, and for
school district purposes, for the sup
port of schools, it shall not exceed
nine mills.
Gov. Washburn contemplates
erecting a mill with fifty run of
stone on tbe ruins of the one recently
destroyed. Should the Governor
carry out his. plan Minneapolis will
have the largest mill in the world.
The village election in Waseca, a
week ago yesterday, resulted in a
majority of 84 for license. It is re
ported that the contest between the
anti-license and license men was very
exciting.
The bill repealing the bankrupt
law, as amended, passed the Senate
last Thursday. The bill provides
that such repeal shall in no manner
invalidate or affect any case in bank
ruptcy instituted and pending in
any court prior to the day when this
act shall take effect which shall be
on the first day of September, next.
George F. Strait & Co's. flouring
mill, at Shakopee, was destroyed by

Hon. H. B. Strait has introduced
a bill providing that the Fort Ridge
ly Reservation shall be turned over
to the Interior Department for re
storation to the public domain and
declared open to settlement under
the homestead and preemption laws.
It is also provided in the bill that
that portion of the Reservation
which was declared open to pre-emp
tion settlement under a previous act
of Congress, shall in addition thereto
be declared open to homestead settle
ment.
Several parties on the Reservation
will be benefited by this bill should
it become a law.
The of the German
Cimbria Elsworth, Me.,
with six hundred Russian naval of
ficers and men, is creating consider
able talk in this country and uneasi
ness in England. It is supposed
that the Russian government has
bought in this country and is fitting
out several vessels as privateers,
which will be used to pry upon the
English .commerce in the event of
war. The ship's papers of the Cimbria
show the Russians simply as pas
sengers, but it is thought that they
are intended to man the Russian
ships that are being fitted out. A
close watch is kept upon the Cimbria
and her misterious passengers by
British agents, who are said to be
quite numerous in this countryjust
now. Should' war break out Eng
land may have occasion to regret
her course in allowing rebel priva
teers to be fitted out in their country,
to pry upon our commerce daring
our "little unpleasantness" in 1861
65.
Russian agents have been among
the New York pilots familiar with
the coast, and if there is war a goo4
many of them will be permanently
engaged by the Russian cruisers.

nate Emperor William. A tinsmith,
said to be from Leipsig named Emit

he was returning from a drive with
the grand duchess of Baden, but
without effect. Hcedel and an ac
complice named Krueger were arresi
ed and when they had their prelimi
nary examination Hoedel said that
it was himself that he wanted
to shoot, and not the Emperor.
Great crowds assembled in front of
the palace, to whom the Emperor
several times presented himself, in
acknowledgement of their expres
sions of sympathy and solicitude.

There was a grand field exhibition
of Self Binders her to-day in both
rye and wheat, the McCormick,

especially for clean work! Five Mc

Afraid of it.

Twenty-six locomotives were sent

Philadelphia, in March.
The steamship Hammonia sailed

Canadian territory." i.s fifssp

at Vienna. He shrugged -his shoul
ders and said to Andrassy: "Beacons

But by and by we will have another
little game, and then we will see who
wins." It xraa the sang froid of a
gambler.
Col. Coope, an Englishman who
worked in Turkish hospitals as a
member of the Red Cross society,
and who was taken prisoner by the
Russians, describes Grand Duke
Nicholas as tall, strongly built and
soldierly in person, but with no in*
dication of capacity and certainly
none of refinement in his counte
nance. His forehead is narrow, his
glance fierce, bat without penetra
tion his features are rather coarsely
and commonly moulded. He is wi
accomplished linguist.

Editor ReviewWe find in the last issue of your
paper a typographical error. It in the misspelling
of a name,or, rather the substitution of the letter
for in the ending of a man's name. Snch mis
takes, though small, sometimes occasion consider
able trouble. We hope the type setter will be a
little careful and get in the right letter, or be .may
sow seeds of bitterness and disarrange the struc
ture of peaceable communities.
I am informed in a sort of informal way that my
bear story is a "leetle" ovredrawn. I wish to to set
myself right. The man who saw the bear says that
he did not run 16 mites that his swiming the river
was a pure fiction that he did not climb a tree bnt
merely backed up against it that be did not loos*
his boots that no bruin with eyes of malignant fire
and fierce growls pursued him in hot haste that
the blasting of that lone tree had no connection
with his bear experience. He says, however, that
he did see a bear at Lone Tree Lake that his sen
sations were by no means honey-sweet that he be
lieved the bear had hostile intentions that the
better way would be to put on a brayeface, and in
ciise of attack, stand your ground that in case of
being hugged by bruin, to take advantage of a mo
mentary relaxation of bis paws and ran for the tree.
SUch were his cogitations The scare was un
doubtedly as bad as the experience would have
been* We give our friend the benefit of these quali
fications. Wehope, however, he may find time to
tell us how the thing is, wether there really were
any terrors incident to his experience, and thus
set the public mind at rest.

Since the news of the explosion of
the flouring mills at Minneapolis was
received yesterday morning, many
of the inhabitants of West Hill who
use Minnesota flour carried their
flour barrels out of door and banked
them in away down at the lower end
of the garden. "It's the Lord's
mercy," said one honest old burgher,
"that we haven't been blown out of
our beds by the infernal stuff, almost
any ,night." And now they eat
nothing but oat meal.
ently leaning. Looking through Ms spectacles,
was quietly reading the last RKVOEW and vent
ing his spite upon the Town Board. He was in
Soly.
ain He might have been heard to utter, "By MM
moses the town board must be investigated!"
I looked him squarly in the face and detected the
old fury gathering and the new fear contending.
He was charged with Are, saying to himself: "this
will never do. The day of compromises is past. To
arms!" We endorse the idea that Annt Sally is far
superior to her assailants, and is as much beyond
them in point of honor and kindly feeling as the
dove is to the hawk.
We hope Lieutenant Scrobswill see Us way clear
to attend the Teusday evening prayer meeting and
tranquilize his feelings befonrbis extermination of
the town board begins, and make the catastrophe as
easy as possible.
How about the swsaer cider? Will it bear reduc
ing? Please rise and explain.
we expect that in due course oftime Podunk wiu
transfer her Teusday evening, prayer meeting to
Sleepy Eye and rouse up our stagnant churches. It
need something of this kind to awake thechurches
to a sense of their danger. A good lively advent
Sabbath discussion wonld be just the thing- When
isDimick? Our friend is well known in religious
circles throughout the country, and hiaappearanes
on theological stage at this time would be timely.
Let us have him. He is a famous defender of his
faith, and we heartily endorse htev.

have said to the object of his affections* "My dear,
I would go to Australia to please you, yes, I would"g,

"Well, said the
there and stay, and it will please me exceedingly."
U. No Hoo thinks that it is easier to find the town
board than Smith.
Who was it that handed the stags driver a letter
which bore the superscription, "Review, NewUlm,"
which was lost and found, and then sent on finally
to its destination? Who was it? What a pyramid of
popularity that letter might have brought tbe wit.
ter. I am informed thithia satire was biting on
town board and displayed considerable genius. 4
Being down to Sleepy Eye tbe other day, we were
informed that our friend John whom we-had taken
for a loyal Methodist has changed his church re
lations. Am sorry to bear it. Did not suppose
our friend could sail under another flag and msi at
home. Ofeasrver.

Sleepy Eye, MayPMldSra.^
Mr. Editor.It seems to me that
Golden Gate is getting intoxicated over
the everlasting town board. Who is
that school master, refered to in the
last issue of the Review, to whom the
legal status of this momentous question
is left for adjudication? We hope our
learned friend will givegthe question a
thorough investigation and publish the
result in the Beview. I have great
faith in his opinion andawait the issue
with considerable anxiety. His clear
intellect is conclusive proof that this
matter will be settled to the satisfac
tion of all interested parties. We al
most anticipate what the verdict win
be. If he should finally conclude that
the action of the late boardwas uncon
stitutional, he will savso.anda special
town meeting will be called and the
question settled beyond dispute. J^
We do not quite understand what is
comprehended by the sentence: "John.
White carries a red flag. It is the sign
of death." Please exblain. Surely,
there is a very definite meaning when
it is said, "It is the sign of death."
What isthis phrase intended to signify"
Has it any connection with John's
shower bath?
Our advent friends can have a fine
field for the exercise of their peculiar
powers, at Sleepy Eye* and we hope
that they will see their way clear to
enter it.
Passing down the street the other
day we met a-buggy. In it was a man
in clerical dress. A barrel of ipntrml
size filled up the rear portion of his
wagon. A friend says, '^That looks
suspicious. Thatbarrelsmacks of lager.
Is he going to the brewery? Why take
such a roundabout coursetoget there?"
If he was not a minister, I am mistak
en. His dress, manner and feature all
indicated his profession. Taking a
glass of lager is nota questionablepro
ceeding if one takes it openly. That
barrel was an exquisite structure as it
rose conspicuously on the dark back
ground of the wagon, and win be eai
ly recognized.
Our schoolmaster at the Gate, may
not find it amiss if he takes a "wee
drap" of sweet eider to exhilerate bias
faculties while heis trying to solve the,
legality of the town board. If the old
board is all right I move that the chair-s
man extends to him a public ovation,
and a reception that shall do honor to
-the man. RCTOfcicnu
