Co. Com. ALBERT BLANCHARD, Chairman. The St. Paul Pioneer Press and Globe are issued this week in great ly enlarged forms. The new education law of Holland, adopted by the members and sanc tioned by the king excludes Bibles and religious teaching from the primary schools. The St. Paul & Sioux City railroad run a special train this week between Mankato and St. Paul. The train leaves Mankatp daily at 5:30 a. m. and arrives in St. Paul at 9 o'clock. Going west it leaves St. Paul at 6:35 p. m., thus enabling visitors to the fair to return to their homes the same day. Considerable interest is manifest ed in the choice of Senators in the even numbered legislative districts this fall, as the Senators are elected for the term of four years and will have a vote for United States Sena tor, to succeed McMillian. President Hayes rill arrive at St. Paul to-morrow morning. He will hold a reception on the grounds of the State Agricultural Society dur ing the day, and in the evening he will leave for Fargo and Bismark. Saturday he returns to Fargo and arrives in Minneapolis Monday,where he will hold a public reception dur ing the day. The yellow fever continues to rage in the South and the death rate seems to increase rather than abate. Memphis advices say the clouds of woe oyer the city show no sign of breaking. Physicians, nurses, visi tors, druggists and undertakers are becoming exhausted by constant working. At Vicksburg the total number of deaths since the fever made its appearance, up to Sept. 1, has been 210, with over 1,200 cases still down. The Northern people are responding to the calls for aid in a true christian spirit. The great State Fair and the Min neapolis Exhibition were opened last Monday under very favorable au spices. The weather on Monday and up to this date has been all that could be desired, and people are flocking into St. Paul and Minne apolis from far and near by the thousands. Both exhibitions are pronounced to exceed by far any thing of the kind ever before seen in the northwest. Senator Blaine made the Inaugural address at the Minneapolis Fair yesterday which waslistened to by animmense crowd. President Hayes will arrive in St. Paul to-morrow moraine and spend the day at the State Fair. Four splendid bands are in St. Paul, from St. Louis, Milwaukee, and Winona, and everybody is happy. The Pioneer Press states that W. F. Pfelps, formerly principal of the Winona State Normal School, has written a letter charging that State School Superintendent Whitford promised influential persons positions ^under his control in case of election for the aid he would give him in the elec tion and of conspiring to oust Prof. Pfelps from the Whitewnter school. To these charges Superintendent Whitford interposes an emphatical denial of each, which leaves a ques tion of veracity between the re nowned educators. Those Badger fellows have learned that Professor Pfelps is an antagonist not to be despised. He takes punishment like a martyr and manages to get in two blows for one. V -v r# sac w$. MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING. The Democratic members of the Senate committee for the investiga tion of the management of the St. Peter Insane asylum, aided by the Democratic press of this district, are very anxious to make a point against Major Strait for charging mileage as a trustee of the insane asylum, while riding on a pass but the following letter published in the Shakopee Courier, from Hon. E. F. Drake, President of the St. Paul & Sioux Ci ty railroad, effectually explodes the malicious campaign slander: St Paul, Aug. 19th, 1878.- D. L. How Esq., Dear Sir: I am informed some one has charged that Major Strait while tra velling on a railroad pass of our com pany, charged the State with fare when visiting St. Peter. On the 1st. of January 1878,1 sent to each mem ber of Congress from this State an annual pass over our road. They were sent without solicitation, and as a matter of courtesy to members who were doing everything in their power to promote the interests of the State. Prior to 1878 this Company did not issue passes nd Major Strait had no pass, but paid his fare like a man, asking nofavors and getting npne from the company. You are at liberty to make any use of this you think properto relieve the Ma jor from the unjust imputation re ferred to. Yours, E. F. Drake, President. From the above it will be readily seen that Major Strait never had a a pass over the St. P. & S. C. rail road until last January, when all the members of Congress were presented with passes, and as he has been in Washington and not attended any of the trustee meetings since then, that story is most too "thin" to stick. He hasH paid his fare to all the meetings he has attended, and the charge of $68, that has been mentioned in the papers, should em brace three distinct and seperate vi sitations, comprising from two to three days each, and included rail road fare and hotel bills. The charg es were perfectly proper, as the law allows it to him. "Perhaps it is pertinent,"says the St. Peter Tribune,' "to inquire how it is that the members of this inves tigation committee put in a bill for mileage to attend the Legislture when every mother's son of them held passes over the railroads. Why don't they have the same regard for the State that they demand of oth- ers?" A terrible explosion of the boiler of a steam thresher occured last Wednesday about two miles from Lewiston, Winona county, on thp farm belonging to C. Fritz. A neighboring farmer, August Schmal ling, Otto Fritz, a boy of 14, and three strangers named Mike Nei mire, Geo. Lawrence, and Charles Schmidter were killed, while a stranger named G. Winderline was severely injured, but not fatally. The engineer had neglected to shut the dampers when stopping the work for the purpose of changing the sieves. The steam rose very rapid ly and the explosion took place while the engineer had gone to the sepora tor. The engineer escaped un harmed. Ou Road Law Unconstitutional. Judge McDonald hasjust disposed of a case being pending in McLeod coun ty, in which he decides that sp much of our road law as attempts to confer jurisdiction upon Justices of thePeace to hear,try and determine appeals from the decision of town boards of super visors, in laying out, or refusing to lay out, public highways, unconstitutional and void. He holds that the appropriation of theland for a highway, involves the title to the land token for a highway and that an appeal to a justice of the peace, from such decision of thesuper visors, is a "cause involving title to real estate and that by Sec. 6 of Art. 8 of our constitution, justices of the peace are prohibitedirom trying such cases. The decision is of interest and will probably be published. We copy the above article from the Chaska Weekly Valley NEW ULM, WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 4th, 1878. NUMBER 36. HERALD. THE NORTHFIELD GAME. SUCCESSFULLY PLAYED IN MISSOURI THE FASTIDIOUS SQUIRES OP THE PAD REFUSE SILVER ASD WILL HAVE NOTHING BUT FLAT MONEY. SEDALIA, MO., Aug. 29.The Se dalia Democrat has the following particulars of the robbery of the Concordia bank: Concordia is a town of about 1,500 inhabitants in Lafa yette county, on the Lexington & St. Louis railroad, thirty miles from Sedalia. The principal banking business of all that part of Lafayette county is done by the Concordia Savings bank, of which J. H. Leo hcefner is president and A. Ticken cashier. This afternoon about half Eank. ast 1 o'clock three men entered the One of them asked the cashier, who was alone in the bank, to change a lOjdollar bill. While he was changing the bill another man jumped over the counter and caught the cashier by the arm and placed one hand over his mouthy They then took what money was in sight, and putting a pistol to the cashier's head told him to open the- safe. He did so underfear of his life, and the robbers took all the paper money in the safebetween three and four thousand dollars in the bank. Dur ing the robbery a gentleman named Sedimar was near the bank, and a robber, who was guarding the door, called him to advance, instead of which he turned and ran. The rob ber fired a second shot at Sedimar, but missed hira. They then mount ed their horses and galloped off in a southerly direction. The robberjr occupied about ten minutes. They were all mounted on good horses, newly shod. Citizens are in ho* pursuit. "My 'W^feM'i 'LUUJiMJ" i i Goldra Gate Correspondence. GOLDEN GATE, AUG. 30tfc 18Z&, Ejitor SevUto: E. N. Henderson the vertenuv Pho tographer is visiting friends in town. B. B. Simmons& A. J. McMurray, we are informed, areabout purchasing.the farm of Jos. Arnold, of stage notoriety. Mr.Pickle,brother of John Pickle.is up looking after his interests here. He reports crops better here than in 01m- stead county. R. B. Simmons has just adorned his store front with a new coat of paint. That is right. We are tired of seeing everything painted white. We are sorrily in need of a black smith. A good energetic blacksmith* would do well here, and I hope this ar ticle will be the means of securing a one. Our town is steadily increasing in importance and business facilities, as the people aiefindingoutthat they can trade just as cheap with our merchants here, as at .Sleepy Eye or elsewhere. Mr. Ed. Dunkan, who has been ab sent for the last two years, has just re turned. He looks hale and hearty. Ed. says he will stay with us about a month, and will then go back to Still water.' Jos. Brown, of Lone Tree Lake, is also home for a few days, Those boys that are in the habit of taking other men's horses out of the stable atnight, for the purpose of try ing their speed had better abandon their profession, ere the law compells them to. We have heard some talk of an investigation, when court sets next fall. That aweful patent medicine man visited our store keepers one day last week. Rash says he is the worst man to drive a bargain with, out of jail. Rash, by the way, will you please rise and tell us about that letter. If a per son wants to get a name all he has to do is to go into a cornfield. Harvest is about completed and threshing is now the business of the day. The crop is not so bad as it was atfirstsupposed to be. Wheatisthresh ing from 10 to 15 bushels per acre, and oats from 60 to 100 bush. I am in formed that George Hart, of Eden, threshed from one acre of measured ground 32 bush, of wheat, which is the best wheat cropI haveheard of in this county, if anyone can beat it, let us hear from him. \%%||yj ^j This place begins to take on metro politan airs, as you mayhearthe qhrill whistle of the steam engine from ear ly dawn till late atnight. We referto Mr. Heimedinger's mill engine, which is nowplaced in positionand doing Mr. Heimedinger good service. Any one wanting a good job of grinding done will do well to callon him andgivehim a trial, as he knows how tc make good flour, and send his customers away re joicing with the assurance of seeing their smiling faces again. ONE OF THE BOYS, Sleepy Eye Gleanings. I also noticed Dr. F.H. Wellcome, of Burns, in town last week. I am glad to learn that the doctor has built upa good business and that he iswell liked by the people in and around Burns. I 'am sorry tohear of hisintended depart xms fos N.ew. York in a few weeks. 0. F. M. 1 Business seems to beonthe increase Some farmershave threshed and come to market with wheat, butthey decliue to sell at such low figures. Our buyers pay 80 cents for old No. 1,73 cents for new No. 1,63 cents for No. 2, and 50* and 35 cents for No. 3 and rejected. Thewheatbuyers suggest that farmers let the wheat "go through the sweat," which will greatly improve it. Grading is favorably progressing on the stieet in front of Murfin & Knud sen's stoie. Fifty men came up last week to work on the round-house, and the structure is going up very fast. ItwilB be animmense building when complet ed. A first class hotel is needed very much. It is almost impossible to get board intown. We noticed Jay Peace In our midst lastweek. Also J. M, Thompson, who* is traveling in the interests of a New York boot und shoe house. The State Teacher's Institute is ire session. Quite many teachers are in attendance. Sickness still prevails among us, but none but what our skilled physicians handle with ease, Dr. Marcellus, a young man, holds forth at White's building. Dr. Wellcome who has been among us for yearsis doing a good busi ness. The doctor can be found at his office, and he|solocitesand attendscalls night or day. I saw it stated in a recent issue oo the REVIEW that Dr. MareeUos Wrfset Mr. Johnson's leg. I wouM fasiorm. your informant that it was Dr. Berry, of NewUlm, that reduced tfcefrac ture, who afterwards put the patient under the care of Dr. Marcellus.
