We learn from the St. Peter Tribune
that a fatal railroad accident happened
in that city on the W. & St. P. R. R.
last Tuesday evening, by which Wil
liam B. Torrey Jr., of Mankato, lost
his life. Mr. Torrey was 17 years of
age, and had been acting station agent
at Nicollet Station about a week.
When he met with the accident he was
on his way to Mankato, on a freight
train, and when near the Hospital for
Insane he attempted to go forward from
the caboose to the engine, and had
made his way over the whole train of
42 cars, when a sudden starting up of
the train threw him to the ground be
tween the cars. The whole train
passed over his left arm and leg, fear
fully crushing them and drawing bis
body under so that his shoulders and
left side were badly mutilated, Mr,
Palmatier,the watchman at the bridge,
found him a few minutes after the ac
cident and he was at once conveyed to
the Nicollet House, in St. Peter, where
everything was done that was possible
to relieve the poor sufferer. He died
at 3 o'clock Wednesday morning. He
was conscious to the last, and knowing
that his parents had been sent for,
seemed anxious to hold out until they
arrivec, but he breathed his last but&
moment before they arrived,

On motion of B. Webber a com
mittee of three consisting of Webber,
Kuhlman and Lind were appointed to
draft resolutions of sympathy on the
death of Hon. Chas. Roos. The com
mittee reported the following:
Whereas since the last sessionof this
Court the Hon. Chas. Roos, an attorney
of this Court, has deceased Therefore
That we recognize the life of the deceased an
example of strict and unyielding honesty, e\er
ti ue to his friends and fearles, piompfand faith

That the members of this bar hereby express their
highest respects for the memory of their deceased
brother and with emotions of profound regaid and
sorrow tender this tubuteto his memory.
That the members of this bar while mourning his
loss, tender their sincere sympathy to the family of
the deceased.
That these resolutions be spread upon the Records
of this Cou. and that a copy thereot be transmitted
to the family of the deceased.
After the resolutions had been read
Judge Cox made the following well
pointed order.

end that piopei lespect bemi? shown, that placed

living and that doing we also may hope to transmit
to our children the legacy of a good name, cherished
by those with whom our walk in life has been cast,

be appropriated out of the city-treasu
ry for each of the three ferries in con
sideration of which the ferrymen would
agree to charge parties crossing on
their respective ferries onZy ten cents.
The petition was signed "The Buerger
Verein." (The Citizen's Association.)
But pray, who constitutes the so-called
Buerger Verein? Is it some local secret
association, or has it something to do
with the communistic socialistic or
ganizations that are developing them
telves in the larger cities? These were
she questions that puzzled the council
ors, and the petition was ref ered back
to those that presented it with a re
quest that some bonafide citizens
names should be attached to it, before
it could be entertained. The petition
was circulated by Mr. Westphal last
Monday, and we understand received
quite a number of signatures, and prob
ably will again be presented at the
next meeting of the council.
For our own part we don't think
there is much business about this sort
of thing. The commercial and other
interests of the city do not only de
mand that a free ferry be maintained,
but that a pontoon or some other kind
of a bridge be established at an early
day, as teams are sometimes kept wait
ing for aa hour before their turn comes
to be set across. While the cities of
St. Peter, Le Sueur and Henderson have
built free budges that cost thousands
of dollars and Shakopee, Mankato and
St. Paul are agitating the necessities
of building bridges Ramsey Co. hav
ing but two weeks ago voted $100,000
by a large majority, to build a bridge
across the Mississippi river, at Foit
Snelling, it is a shame that men should
be found in this community little
enough to flaunt a petition around to
have the free ferry abolished, that
costs the city but a paltry sum annu
ally. Why do not those parties that
do not want the trade from the other
side of the river circulate a petition,
that a fence be built along the river
bank, and thereby give the farmers to
understand that we do not want their
trade? There would be just about as
much sense in it. In conclusion we
are glad to state that the city council
does not favor any such foolhardy pro
ject, but will go right along and estab
lish a pontoon bridge at an early day. animalss to be at for thei_r
intelligence. Mr. Sebastian's bare
back riding is at once graceful and
daring, and Mr. William O'Dale's five
horse act was a perfect triumph. Sig
nor Marquez also does a showy bit of
riding in Indian character. In the
way of tumbling and gymnasts the com
pany is especially strong. The three
Herbert brothers accomplish with
wonderful ease the feats which are
usually achieved with the greatest diffi
culty, and they go far ahead of most
of their competitors in brilliant per
formances. Mr. Long is a very fine
leaper, and the "Renos" have rarely
been equaled on the horizontal bar.
Miss. Claife was much admired for hei
graceful and bold act on the flying rings.
The two clowns, Pico and Mr. McEn
tire, know how to fill in the time with
comic bussiness and happy sallies, so
that there is no drag in any part of the
performance. Perhaps the most won
derful exhibition of all was the utter
ly reckless manner in which Mr. Geo.
Conklin carried himself in the den of
lion. He bullied the magnificent brutes
with a perfect power of domination.
They leaped over him and played with
him, lay down at his feet and took their
food from his hands just as he chose
to give it to them. Having given it to
them, he would even take it away
again, though they were evidently
hungry enough. Altogether it was a
remarkable display. Capt. and Mrs.
Bates the largest people in the world,
were introduced in the ring during the
early part of the evening and were vo
ted immense. Taken all in all the
show combines as many attractions as
have ever been brought together un
der one canvas.
The menagerie is admirably arranged
for the convenience of spectators, be
ing in a seperate part of the pavilion
from the circus, and so placed that all
can see without being crowded. There
is a large herd of dromedaries, and a
mong them a wee bit of a thing only
three weeks old. Another curiosity
