NEW ULM, MINN.
CHAS.-L. ROOS, Managing Editor Wednesday, September 28, 1887. The daily papers are carrying on a controversy as to whether or'not Mrs. Cleveland snubbed Gov. and Mrs. For aker at the reception tendered to Pres ident and Mrs. Cleveland at Philadel phia during the session of the Constitu tional Convention held last week. If Mrs. Cleveland snubbed the Governor she did only what any other woman would have done to the man who de nied having likened her husband to a dog because he had too much respect fo the dog. There are some things which even a politicians wife cannot overlook. The State Ffcir managers report a surplus of $15000 as a result of this year's work. This will enable them to run next ear's exposition without sell ing privileges to gamblers, fakirs, for tune tellers and other like characters. It may also save President Merriam the trouble of saying that he would rather draw his personal check for the amount of privilege money paid, than permit the gambling to continue, after it has been going on for nearly a week. On his return from Philadelphia, where'he has been to represent Minne sota at the constitutional convention, Lieut. Gbv. Rice allowed himself to be interviewed and confessed to a reporter that Robt. T. Lincoln was his prefer ence for President. Mr. Rice claims that there is no man who is stronger with all classes of people than Mr. Lin coln. Edmund Rice is the only native born Congressman from Minnesota, Lind and Nelson were born in Norway, Judge Wilson in Ireland, and Mac Donald in Canada. President Cleveland will arrive in St" Paul at 5:30 p. on Monday, Oct. 19 and will remain there until noon of Tues day, when he goes to Minneapolis to spend the afternoon, leaving at night for Omaha. The Wisconsin Supreme Court has just rendered an important opinion, as snowing the liability of assessment life insurance campanies. Mary Stylow, of Watertown, brought suit against the Wisconsin Odd Fellows' Mutual Life Insurance Company, to recover $1,000 insurance on her husband's life. It was shown in the lower court that when Stylow died he had not paid up two as sesments. It was also shown that if a person insured failed to pay the assess ment within sixty days after it was made on him his own policy would be rendered void. Stylow had failed to pay repeatedly within sixty days, but when he finally did tender the amount of his assessment itwas always accepted. When he died the company declined to pay the insurance on Stylow's life, OD the ground that he was behind two as sessments. The court held that the company is liable. The Supreme Court sustained this verdict. There has been some surprise shown at the fact that with a wheat crop prob ably 30,000,000 bushels below that f last year and a fair export de mand,j the price of wheat should re main so low. It happens sometimes that when the wheat crop is a short one in the United States it is unusually large elsewhere. This is one of the years in which such a thing has hap pened. The European wheat crop is now known to be unusually lirge. The statistics of the international corn mar ket of Vienna,, which have gained a well-deseived reputation for accuiacy, show the crop of 1887 to be far above the average. The Austrian yield is placed at 17 per cent, above an average and that of Hungary at 26 per cent, above. Instead of buying wheat, as is frequently the case, Austro-Hungary will have 30,000,000 bushels to export. The crop in Great Britain and Ireland is 20 per cent, above an average in Servia, 40 Central Russia, 18 Wal lachia, 25, and France, 5 The yield in 'other European countries is up to or above the average, making it certain that the demand for American and., In dian wheat will not be so great as in former years. If this estimate should be found too high, however, the Ameri can surplus for export will be large enough to meet a very heavy demand. With the surplus carried over from 1886, the available^wheat in the United States will not fall much short of 500,- 000,000 bushels, an amount that will meet the most liberal demands for home consumption and leave a large surplus to be exported or carried over, as may be the case. Under the circumstances wheat is pretty certain to rule low du ring the coming year. While this will be unfortunate for the farmers it will prove the reverse for the millions of working people who must buy their bread. It is an ill wind that blows no body good, and what promises to be the farmers1 loss in this case is certain to prove the gain of an equal or greater BBI farms and number who do not own raise wheat Winona Republican, demonstration of any kind. A Minneapolis ward politician by the name of Peter Anderson brought a charge against Mr. S. D. Peterson, of this city, last week, claiming that Mr. Peterson had received $20,000 from the Columbia Society to corrupt the Legis lature and had also been employed by the Manitoba road to lobby against certain railroad measures in the late Legislature. Coming from so unreli able a source, as this man Anderson is said to be, it is rather surprising that the twin city dailies wasted so much valuable space upon the sensation as they did. But perhaps the usual stock of sensational news had run short and so they utilized this for all it was worth. It was quite unnecessary for Mr. Peter son to go to the trouble of denying the assertions claimed to have been made by this man Anderson. No thinking person could read the charges with out being impressed by their absurdity. Mr. Peterson states that Anderson is a dead beat, having written him letters asking him for money, on one occasion having got a lawyer of Minneapolis to write a letter advising Peterson to pay Anderson money in order to keep his name from the public. Mr. Peterson still has the the letter in his possession, and promises to make things lively for several people. This man Anderson first met Mr, Petersen in Chicago and afterwards in St. Paul. During the ses sion of the legislature Anderson was working to defeat the high licence bill, and finding Peterson was in the same interest tried to borrow $50, which Mr. P. refused to loan. This wasthe beginn ing of the enmity and led to the throat ing letters that Anderson has sent and caused to be sent. Mr. Peterson says he does not know who composed the Columbia association, and emphatic ally denies having used money in their interest. He worked against the high license bill because the people of this district were against it. He denies having worked against the railroad bills and most emphatically denies having been employed by J. J. Hill for that purpose. It looks as though the state* ments against Mr. Peterson were made for the purpose of blackmail more than anything else. TH E G. A. ENCAMPMENT Over Fifty Thousand Members are Expected to meet at St, Louis. St. Louis Sep. 25.The boys in blue are gathering at the camping grounds, and the streets of St. Louis are sprinkled with Grand Army men with breasts decked with copper and ribbon badges. The thoroughfares were crowded with strangers all day, and from the depots crowds of visitors passed to and fro. The beat of the drum and whistle of the fife grows familiar and all pedestri ans drop unwillingly into the steady tramp. Bulletins in the shops and tele graphs announced the approach of dele gations, and the advance guard in squads and by posts rolled into the city by every incoming train. The Pacific slope swooped down upon the town in thirty-three carsfifteen hundred strong from California and a hundred more from Oregon, Washington Territory and Alaska. They came with the products of peacethe fruits, the wines and the grapes of the golden landand in the great hall of the armory are preparing to exhibit, as the Knight Templars did last year, some of the blessings of their fertile country. Within a block of the armory, their camp ef tents shelter 800 men to-nightthe first of the boys to take to the field. Scarcely had their tramp died out when Wisconsin, led by Gov. Rusk and his body guard of seven teen maimed soldiers, marched through tho streets escorted by 150 men from Milwaukee. Their tents were pitched in Can place, and after Msitmg their quarters, many sought their comrades from Illinois, who were quartered at Lyon Park. Three hundred from the Quincy, 111. Soldiers Home had arrived, and as thy took possession the one legged staff of Wisconsin marched around the ground on an inspection tour. Ohio's delegation of 400 from Cleveland came in latev and hastened to St. Louis Park, where they were joined by squads from Indiana.Eansas and Massachusetts had manv men at their tents at Wash ington Park, though the posts will not arrive until to-morrow. A martial air pervades the city, and several thousand soldiers perambulate the streets, and promise many more than were at first expected. As California came 1,500 strong instead of 800 as was at first promised, and as each other state now sends notice of increased attendance, the total number will swell to more than fifty thousand. As these men arrive they will be met at the depot by a reception committee, who will send one man with each post to direct them to their quarters. Tents and rooms are prepared for all, no mat ter what number. As Gen. Sherman retired from Ransom post last night he left all public matters behind, and ear ly this morning visited the home of Mrs. Henry S. Turner, where he re mained until evening, when he returned to Henry Hitchcock's residence, where a few old friends were received without HMi i^^mmmm s&p He was ^sp^gY' asked if he was a candidate for com mander-in-chief. He emphatically re plied, "No, and please put that in the plainest term you have." He says that under no circumstances can he be induced to be a candidate for the honor. Ex-Commander-in-chief M. S. Kountz of Toledo, Ohio, Robert B. Beath of Philadelphia and J. C. RoDertscn of New "York are prominent arrivals. They were driven through the city this afternoon, visiting each camp and view ing the decorations which bedeck the buildings along the way. On the day of the grand parade (Tuesday) business will be practically suspended, as Mayor Francis has declared it as a holiday, and requested all persons to observe it as such. The merchants exchange have signified their intention of (o do- ing, and there will be no session of the board of trade on that day. The schools will also be closed and the warmest re ception extended to the veterans on every hand. Nothing has been left un done for their entertainment, and a warm welcome is extended to the mo bilization of the Grand Army of the Republic. A dozen pairs of mittens for 10 cents at John F.

Not only the larger air-passages, but the thousands of little tubes and cavities leading from them. When these are clogged and choked with matter which ought not to be there, your lungs cannot half do their work. And what they do, they cannot do well. Call it cold, cough, croup, pneumo nia, catarrh, consumption or any of the family of throat and nose and head and lung obstructions, all are bad. All ought to be got rid of. There is just one sure way to get rid of them. That is to take Boschee's German Syrup, which any druggist will sell you at 75 cents a bottle.
