I* I t- I NEW ULM, MINN. CHAS.-L. ROOS, Managing Editor Wednesday, November 2,188 7. President Cleveland, Col. Lamont and Gov. Hill are said to have contri buted liberally to the New York State democratic campaign fund. This will be distressing news to the mugwumps, for 'according to their adulation of Cleveland he was not supposed to do anything of the kind. Henry M. Jackson, cashier f the sub-treasury at New York, decamped for Canada with $10,000 of government money. Treasurer Canda is 'respons ible to the government and will have to make good the loss. The Northwestern Manufacturing and Car Works, at Stillwater were sold to the Northwestern Thresher Company for $1,005,000 75 last Thursday.The citi zens of Stillwater tendered SenatorSabin a reception the same evening and also held a jollification meeting over the result. The officialjvote of the Grand Army Posts on the Disability Pension bill, which was drawn up by a G. A. R. committee, was as follows: Total num ber of posts voting, 2,715 total number of votes for the bill, 106, 989} total vote against the bill, 3,601. It is announced that from and after Nov. 1st the maximum rate between all "Western Union offices east of the Miss issippi, including Helena, Ark., will be 60 cents for ten words and 4 cents a word for additional words for day mes sage, and 40 cents and 4 cents for addi tional words for night messages. In a large number of cases the reduction will be 15 cents and 1 cent, and in others 40 cents and 3 cents. Rates on press spec ials will also be largely reduced. E. B. Haskell has sold his interest in the^Boston Herald. He is worth two millions and is said to have sold out so as to be relieved from all business cares. He may be able to spare time enough to keep an eye on the Minneapolis Tri bune and prevent his son from writing or approving any "mere people" edi torials. The members of the St. Paul G. A. R., assisted by the Sons of Veterans and Womens' Relief Corps, gave a re ception and camp-fire to Comma nder-in* Chief Rea at the Acker Past Hall Thurs day night. The hall was elaborately decorated with flowers and badges and the outer rooms were filled with hard tack and coffee cups. Col. David* son delivered an elaborate address of welcome, in which he spoke of Judge ilea's qualities both as a man and sold ier, and of the love which every Grand Army man had for him. He was fol lowed by Judge Rea himself, who de livered a lengthy speech in which he said,: I have been a member of this grand institution for 21 years, and shall al ways belong to it as long as life lasts. I beeame a member because I believed in the principles on which it was found ed, whieh were to help and do good to the poor and helpless soldier. It is a good and sublime institution,and is mean to be moral and protect the morality of its members. Is it not a good thing for those who for years in the army were brought into associations which were not strictly moral? Here were a million men and boys taken away from home and home influences, and went to the army and kept away for years from mo ral restraint' These were in need of moral support They get this moral sup poit in the Grand Army, for it is for such that we are organized. The influ ences of the army, however were not aH bad. Look at the million of men who fought in the army, who were edu cated in the work of destruction and kept at that work for years. They came home, for all that, covered with glory and the history which has no parallel. They took their places among the rest in society, and kept without a ripple of anything wrong. Even though they were made to destroy life and property, they were simply doing their duty, a duty which made them holy. They were made better by it, lifted up and made better men. I therefore say that the Grand Army is a grand affair and one where ^all hearts and hands unite in brotherhood. Have we not members of all races and all colors We are banded together for a grand and holy purpose and should help to keep the standard fl tMothersi f@Wtfes! tMothersi' Daughters! f% BE YOUR OWN PHYSICIAN!

Address (with 2 oent stamp), Mrs. W. C. HOLMES, & Fayette Marscb, attorney for ex-war den Reed, has sworn out,two warrants for the arrest of warden Stordock.

Supt Nash, of the rail road mail service, whose division is more paticularly interested than any other in the change, said? "It often happens that a certain road which has good connections gets on the quadren nial weighing the contract for a laage amount of mail matter. Consequently it loses those connections, and the larg er part of the mail is taken away from it. Its contract, however, is made on a certain basis, and it continues to re ceive pay on that basis. In the same way a road may have to increase its service without increasing its compen sation. Competing lines will also have a better distribution of matter. Maj. Allen, of the gevernment ser vice, has completed his survey of the Minnesota river from its mouth to Man kato. He is now writing his report, whieh is to be presented to Congress. The business men of Mankato are very hopeful that an appropriation will be made for the improvement of the river and that navigation on that stream will be renewed after a suspension of man years. We do not believe, however, that the scheme, even if carried into ef fect, will ever meet the anticipations of its advocates. The navigation of the Minnesota river, in its most palmy days, was tout a slow, tedious, and provoking process, undertaken and adhered to for a time only because it afforded the best method of transportation that was then attainable. When the railroad w?s built along side of the river, steamboat navigation at once became as* unprofit able as it was always uncertain, and its abandonment speedily followed as a matter of course. The restoration of commerce on the Minnesota river is now impracticable for any length of time, and it is very questionable whether any man oouid be found to undertake the navigation of that river in a form to compete with the railroads and thus benefit the communities along its banks even if the channel, by the expenditure of a large Congressional Appropriation, were to be relieved of all obstructions. Winona, Republican. Henry Villard's Castle. New York Special' Henry Villard has become one of the largest owners of suburban property on the Hudson. He has owned for some time a large estate, and is said to-day to have added thereto by the purchase of an estate ad joining his, of fourteen acres, for whieh $5000 an acre was lately refused. He is also credited with other large pur chases in the same neighborhood, his entire estate thereabout extending through part of two townships. This neighborhood has long been favored by millionaires. Jay Gould's summer home is there, as is that of Cyrus W# Field and other men widely known for fheir wealth. The Villard estate is eclipsed in nat ural beautv by none. It overlooks a wide sweep of landscape and river, and will doubtless be the seat of one of the most magnificent summer homes in the country as soon as Mr. Villard's for tunes will warrant the expenditure. He built a place in the the city, decor ating some of the walls with gilded and painted satin and fine embroideries, but before it was finished the Northern Pa cific ciash came and bad to sacrifice it. It is now the home of D. O. Mills and Witelaw Reid, who purchased it for about $620,000. This was a mere song compared with its cost to Villard. It is said that this castle to be built'on the banks of the Hudson will surpass his previous effort. 4 i iX j* A CARD tL The public is hereby notified that a cigar manufacturer in St. Peter, has un scrupulously, without my consent or sanction, and in an underhanded way taken the brand-name of my celebrated White Rose Cigars, This is a base at tempt to undermine my trade on this brand and to build a false reputation for his goods on the widespread reputa tion my Original White Rose Cigars" have achieved in a period of four years.
