Congress met last Monday and the
message was no doubt
delivered to both houses yesterday.
Our readers will be furnished with
the message next week.
In spite of all the efforts of the
New York police and a large force
of private dedectives, stimulated by
the $50,000 reward, the stolen re

one of them sunk in fifteen minutes.
Nineteen lives werejlost.
Another ocean horror has occurred
on the British coast. The Ham
burg-American steamer Pomerania,
en route from New York to Ham
burg collided with a Welsh bark and
sunk at midnight Nov. 24, and
eighty-three persons were drowned.
The St. Paul Volkszeitung Print

been reorganized, with Adolph
Munch as president, Adam Fink,
vice president, and Chas. H. Lienau,
secretary and treasurer, and the new
evening German daily made its ap
pearance last Saturday.
The (watonn Journal is in fa
vor^of doing away with annual elec

would be an improvement lfthe terms
of county officers would be length

The Lamberton Commercial, the
latest venture in the newspaper line
west of us, made its debut last
Thursday. The Commercial is none
of your blanket sheets, but a neat,
tasty looking 4 column quarto, well
filled with local and other matters of
interest, and reflects eredit upon
its enterprising publisher, Mr. W.
W. Yarham. We welcome it to our
exchange list.
Inhuman treatment of prisoners
at the State Prison is the latest sen
sation on the Globe. Last week the
St. Paul Globe published a state
ment of Patrick Coffey, a released
convict, that the prisoners at Still
water are treated with inhuman cru
elty, and that he himself had croton
oil poured down his back, since then
other ex-convicts have come out in
the Globe verifying Coffey's state
ment. The Globe loudly calls for a
legislative investigation of this
"Minnesota Hell," as it terms it.
The Texas legislature recently
passed a bill which makes it_a mis
demeanor, punishable by a fine of
$100, for a person to use profane
language within hearing of any pri
vate dwelling. A man's mule got
balky in a Texas town the other day
and the man got mad. The animal
would start off suddenly, run about
twenty yards, and then stop fifteen
minutes to survey the neighborhood,
and before the man got out of town
he owed the authorities $80,000. He
told them they might take the mule
and call it square.
The official vote for Congressmen
was, in pursuance of law, canvassed
by the Governor, State Auditor and
Secretary of State on Monday Nov.
25th. We give the result on third
page of this issue. From the action
taken by Mr. Donnelly before the
board it is evident that he proposes
to contest Washburn's seat. His
attorneys appeared and objected to
the canvassing of the returns from
the counties of Big Stone, Douglass,
Otter Tail, Isanti, Kanabec, Lake,
Kittson and Traverse, on the plea
that they were not regularly organ
ized. The board, however, over
ruled the protests and canvassed the
St. Paul was thrown into con

barrassment. Diligent search was
made for the body during the whole
week but proved unavailing up to
Saturday noon, and it began to be
rumored that he had not committed
suicideat all,but had fled the country.
The recovery of his body, however,
about 2 o'clock Saturday afternoon
dispelled all such rumors. There
were no marks of violence on the
body and it is now thought that he

The New York Tribune is autho
rity for the statement that "samples
of the products of many New York
and Brooklyn sugar refineries have
been analyzed by chemical experts,
and in every instance the investiga
tion has shown conclusively that re
fined sugars have been adulterated
by the use of tin and muriatic acid,
glucose, and other substances. The
largest proportion of the adulteration
has been found to consist of glucose,
a cheap product of corn. An analy
sis of many samples of sugar and sy
rup has been made, and in but one
instance has the sugar been found
to be whollj free from adulteration.
It is stated that no action can be
taken with respect to the adultera

other interesting facts, detailed ex

common wells throughout the Red
River valley and other places. After
thorough examinations and analysis
of the water of those wells, it has
been found that the impurity of the

PESHAWUR, Friday evening, Nov.
29.Gen. Brown's communications
have been temporarily cut. Hostile
highlanders, estimated at 4,000 in
number, have collected in the hills
below Ali Musjid. They cut off
stragglers and fired in armed parties.
The section of the pass between
Jumrood and Ali Musiid has been
closed altogether for the present. A
strongly escorted convoy failed to
force its way to-day. The situation
is serious, and strong measures are

Thull says- The Afghans have got
their guns up Peirrar Pass, and have
established a battery on the summit.
Afghan troops swarm on the ridges
and crags. The Thull regiments
failed to turn the enemy's position
on Saturday, and retired on discov
ering his strength. One man was
killed and twelve wounded. The
withdrawal of the battery and camp
of the remainder of the force was
rendered necessary by the accuracy
of the Afghan artillery fire. The
British will attack the pass Monday,
after the troops have had a day's rest.
They are confident of good results,
although the pass is 7,000 feet high.
The fighting will certainly be severe.
A dispatch from Sakhar says:
News from the Quettah column is
discouraging. In consequence of
the loss of camels it is universally
believed the advance on Candah.ir
will be delayed until spring.

Peshawur Saturday night says: Gen.
Appleyard, who was sent to clear
Khyber pass, has been heavily en

sent from Jumrood. It seems im

Written for the Review by O CHAHM*.
We have said capitalists are those
who have more than enough to meet
all present necessities. One would
infer from much that it said about
labor and capital that there was a
wide gulf between the svo, and that
the representatives of one form a
class separated widely from the re
presentatives of the others. One
gets the impression from the dis
cussion that the laboring class is
permanently fixed on one side of
this gulf and the capitalists class on
the other, and there is no transfer of
either from one to the other party.
But this is not according to the
1. The poor man, the laborer,
whose income is consumed in meet
ing the demands of his daily neces
sities has a chance, equally with
other men of his class, to improve
his national condition. He may be
come a capitalist. He is aware of
this and is stimulated by it. The
bulk of the laboring class in this
country is working towards this
2. We now advance one step in
this statement of facts and assert
that many poor men have become
capitalists and multitudes more are
sure to be. Many years ago a mer
chant in Boston desired a boy to
work in his store and one of no
education, and of no other advan
tages to fit him for such a position,
a child of very poor parents, was re
commended to mm for his excellent
character. With patched clothing
and one dollar, the first he ever had,
which was sent him to pay his fare
from his country home to the city he
set out afoot for his future employee.
He was accepted. He has become a
man, and the owner of several large
mills, a banking house and a fine
farm or to put it all in one word a
a capitalist. His is the history of
thousands in this country. Some
years ago a poor young man, with
out even a friend to recommend
him, entered Chicago from an East
ern State and sought employment,
which, after a while, he got as
brakeman on a freight train. He
was faithful and industrious. From
that position he has been repeatedly
promoted until now he holds the po
sition of General Superintendent of
one of the most important railroads
in the world. Instead of a salary
of four or five hundred dollars a year
he now receives twenty thousand in
gold. These two examples, which
might be multiplied indefinitely,
show what is going on among work
men on a large scale and illustrate
the transfer of that class across the
gulf to the capitalists ranks. One
familiar with the biography of the
men of means in this land will not
need to be told that most of them
were once poor working men. It is
really surprising how large a pro
portion of the so called rich men of
our time began life with the bare
furnishings of Nature. It has been
so in the past. Those who will be
the capitalists of fifteen or twenty
years hence are now known as work
3. But how about the other side?
Are capitalists transferred, in the
course of events, to the laborer's
'side? It is impossible for every man
to be rich. There is not money e
nough in the land to make every man
well off if it was equally distributed
among all. As some become rich
others become poor. This can be as
profusely illustrated as the previous
point. There are scattered about
over the whole country men who
are in the most tsraitened circum
stances but who were formerly rich.
I extent the following item from a
recent issue of a leading New York
city paper. It tells the story of
thousands with but slight variations:
"A man recently died in this city,
and was hurried in Potter's Field,
who twelve years ago was reputed
to be worth five hundred thousand
dollars, which he lost by speculation,
and then became a passanger con
ductor, then a saloonkeeper, then a
pauper." Two men whose income
was at one time one hundred thou
sand dollars a year finally took po
sitions the one a bar-tender, and the
other Commander-in-Chief of a
street car. But I will not cite
another of the many illustration^
which I have gathered to show how,
in the course of events, the capital-
P4 **f
ist changes sides and goes over the
supposed impassable gulf to the poor
laboring class. The truth is the
members of these two classes are
constantly changing their relative
positions. He who cries out against
the rich to-day may be rich himself
to-morrow and he who is rich to
day may be poor to-morrow. Neith
er one should throw stones at the
Golden Gate, Dec. 2d, 1878.
Editor Review:
In the REVIEW of Nov. 13th I see an
article signed "One of the Boys," and
it is a very easy matter to locate the
misterious individual. This "Boy,"
the public opinion is, is permanently
located in the southern part of the
county and is givmg in the Review a
record of occurrences that took place
in his own town. If he has any inoie
events of a staitling character to re
port, let him not bo ashamed to head
his articles wheie they properly be*
I have made inquiries as to the party
who had rings stolen but failed to get
at anything tangible and believe that
the whole thing is a fabrication, oi it
it ever occurred the writer undoubted*
ly had in mind what did actualy tians
pire at Lone Tree Lake, when, at an
evening party, two rings were quietly
lifted from .i harness by some light
fingered gentry, and carried off. I
have ascertained since that the party,
or parties, are spotted, and hope they
will soon be brought to justice.
The same writer speaks of a husking
bee where "cigars" were sold on the
sly. This place certamly was not Gol
den Gate, tor our town does not do
business in that way. If such an
event did occur, wheie cigars were le
tailed "on the sly," by a feminine in
dividual, I see nothing cuminal in it,
but consider it a legitimate business
even in connection with a husking bee.
Speaking of racing on the Sabbath,
so far as Golden Gate was concerned,
there were no Christians engaged, but
bfcnafide representative sporting men.
The adjoining town retered to did.
have a race, and that race was parti
cipated in by Christian men, and that
too in the neighborhood if a church,
whose lofty spire might have been an
untaihng rebuke to the parties who
thus profaned our quiet rest-day.
Golden Gate, I know, is improving
politically, socialy and wish we could
say religiously, but this we do say,
that if we ever build a church we shall
persuade our people to dispense with
cigars in connection with our sociables,
for how would it sound to hear these
profane words: "The corner stone of
Golden Gate church rests upon a box of
Havanna cigars." We hope our neigh
bor will banish cigais from his socia
We are sorry to learn that there is a
man so mean as to steal communion
wine. Where this neighboring church
is the writer says not, but I am sure
that it is none of the Golden Gate boys,
for they would not be guilty of such
sacrahgious conduct. Suiely this is
the personification of meaness.
I wish to correct one of the afore
said writer's articles, lest it should get
into general circulation. It is this* I
am informed that Mr. Eldred does not
intend to fill the Lone Tree Lake pul
pit, and that the writer was laboring
under a mistake. This must have been
an invention of his own imagination.
The Ladies' Aid Society of Lone
Tree Lake had a festival Thanksgiving
day, and I am informed that it was a
very enjoyable affair.
I don't like to meddle with church
affairs, but the advise of heritics might
not come amiss sometimes. The Pres
byterian church at Sleepy Eye stands
solitary and alone. We suggest that
the building be sold and devoted to
some useful purpose instead of stand
ing idle in a town which is rapidly
growing- in dimensions and importance.
As Sleepy Eye has all the churches
that are necessary to its present wants
why not transfer the vacant property
to the Gate? Let us agitate the matter
and set the ball rolling, it certainly
would be a blessing to our community
and give us a standing among the na
tions to have a church. I move that
negotiations for the purchase and
transfer commence immediately. What
say our supervisors'
The building lately vacated by Mr.
J. S. Arnold has been purchased by J.
Reeve, and one day last week was
moved down on Main street just south
of R. B. Simmons' residence, where
you can get work done on short notice,
as Mr. R. is prepared to make or mend
boots and shoes for all that may call.
Our merchants have adopted the
"cash system" of doing business, and
say they will not be undersold. They
have a general stock suitable to the
wants of the neighboring community.

As for Justice, I don't care a figs
whether he goes up or down. I nope
his arm will get well, is my best wisU
and that he will take the field again.
