The Present Year Opens with Every As
surance of Making Still Greater
The year just ended has been a most
remarkable one in the history of New
Ulm. Building has been active beyond
precedent and the whole city bears an
almost different air as a result. Indus
try has been quickened, and to-day we
have institutions within oui* city that
we can point to with pride. Chief
among the additions of the year, of
course, are the Eagle Mill, the Masonic
Block and Hauenstein's brewery. The
former required an expenditure of near
ly $50,000 and has given New Ulm a
plant capable of turning out 900 barrels
a day. The changes in Mr, Hauenstein's
brewery also entailed a great outlay
and the annual capacity of the brewery
has thereby been increased to 15,000
barrels. The Masonic Block, erected
jointly by Messrs. Jacob Klossner and
Lind & Hagberg and the Masons, is a
handsome brick structure, three stories
high, which at once attracts the atten.'
tion of the visitors and reflects credit
upon the city. Then too, a great num
ber of residences have been erected, the
best of all evidences that New Ulm is a
cown at the foundation of which is sure
prosperity. Below we give a full list of

IGNATIUS REFUSES TO FUSE.
He Lays the Alliance and Democrats will
The State Farmers1 Alliance met in
St. Paul yesterday and a good deal of
speculation has arisen as to whether a
fusion will be agreed to between the Al
liance and the Demoeracy. Donnelly,
upon being interviewed on the subject,
is reported to have said: "No, sir, the
question of fusion with any party will
not come up in any way at the annual
meeting. This is a farmers alliance, and
the question of lusion is not a proper
one for it to consider. The Alliance is a
farmers' society for the benefit of farm
ers, and it only goes to the ballot box
to protect the farmers' rights. Ninety
nine per cent of theJAlliance is in favor
of the People's Party, but the question
of fusion is one for that party to raise,
not us: The People's Party meets in
convention next summer some time.
What it will do, I can't say."
"The question of the Minnesota Al
liance joining the National alliance is
to be raised,it is understood. What will
the convention do with that?"
"It is difficult to say." said Mr. Don
nelly, warily. "Some are opposed to it,
some in favor of it."
"The majority is which way?"
"That is difficult to say," responded
the sage, still more varily."
"What is the objection to the Nation
"We had up something of this ques
tion at the last session. The main dif
ference is that the National Alliance is
a secret order, "while the Minnesota Al
liance is not. I take it that the senti
ment a year ago was against the secret
"Has the sentiment changed?"
"As I say," answered Mr. Donnelly,
'some are for it and some against it."
To-day G. A. Blomberg succeeds to
and takes possession of the office of clerk
of court, having been elected thereto at
the last general election. We welcome
him into the office and hope that it will
prove pleasant and lucrative. As hebut
goes in, Louie Mueller, the efficient de
puty who has had charge of the office
for the past three years steps out. We
regret to see him leave the office for he'
conducted it with marked ability, and
with courtesy not always found in pub
lic'officials. He was obliging and al
ways a gentleman and was an official of
whom the county never had cause to
be ashamed. goes soon to New
Ulm to embark in business, and we
with hisjtaany other friends wish him
all suceero.—St. Peter Herald.
The following from the St. Peter
Herald is but another instance of how
we take to strangers: This city was
visited by a strange' pair last Saturday
and Sunday and to a certain extent was
beautifully worked, at least that is the
general opinion. The pair consisted of a
smooth, versatil, eloquacious gentleman
who could entertain a crowd in conver
sation perhaps in such a manner as no
man who ever visited the city. He had
no business here, came with out baggage
and left without giving up any inform
ation regarding himself associated
with him apparently, was a woman who
was not far from beautiful. She was
modestly attired and carried a paper
which she presented, on which was the
information that she was en-route from
Grand Rapids, Mich., to Butte City and
and that she had been robbed on theands
cars and as now soliciting for funds
with/which to reach her destination.
Ju^t before leaving town she was iderf-
-:-,~ ~v" goof/dent of Mankato notlong before and of
jjpad repute. She is said to have picked
&p $25 or $30 in town and turned it
over to her smooth, versatile and loqua
woman who had been a resi-
DEFENDING MR. BLAINE.
Alden J. Bletfien in the Mmneapolis Jour
v. nal Fights for the Plumed
Against the Attacks of the Tribune he
Utters Fine Sentiments for the Be-,.
No Other Living Man Gould Have Polled
the Vote in Minnesota thai
Replying to a scurrilous attack by
the editor of the Minneapolis Tribune
upon our present secretary of state and
a number of his Minneapolis admirers,
Alden Bletben penned the following
letter to the Minneapolis Journal, full
of fine sentences and excellent pointers
for the maligners of the nation's leading
Let us examine the situation a little
from a historical standpoint and see
whether or not this attack upon a great
statesman by a newspaper which has
been uniformly his warmest friend and
supporter and the* just criticisms made
by some of his warm friends can be
properly classed under the head of "a
tempest in a teapot'V^
The personal history of Mr. Blaine is
familiar to every man who ever cast a
vote for a presidential candidate in the
United States. His brilliant career
from the time he entered the legislature
of the state of Maine in the early 60's,
through his cotinued service in congress
both as member and speaker, his ca
reer as United States senator, his
association as secretary of state in the
•administration of the late lamented
Gariield, the magnificent canvass of
1884, resulting as it did in a victory in
every Republican state in the union,
with the exception of New lork, and a
defeat there of only 1,000 votes, together
with his magnificent career as secretary
of state in the present administration,
are matters of history with which every
man who has any interest in the pro
gress and stability of his government,
or the success of his party, are quite
familia.. There is not a man in theis
Northwest to-day who does no'., know
that that great majority of 40,000 votes
which Minnesota gave Mr. Blaine in
1884 could not have been duplicated by
any othtr living man.
In the late contest for the national
Republican convention. Ool. C. W.
Johnson, clerk of the S. senate, al
though perhaps never an enthusiastic
Blaine man, assured the newspaper re
porters of the national capital that "90
per cent, of the Republican party of the
Northwest were unaminous for James
G. Blaine as a candidate for the next
Republican contest." Similar expres
sions were made by United States sena
In a recent interview Col. Conger, of
Ohio, said that Mr. Blaine "was 100,000
votes stronger than his party." And
there is not a man to-day who has the
best interests of his party at stake and
who desires the perpetuity of his party
that knows that the words of Col.
Conger and Col. Johnson are more than
To-day I yield not one jot or tittle to
any man in my admiration for the ad
ministration of Gen. Harrison. It has
been one of the most perfect, faultless
and complete administrations that has
been made by the Republican party
since the days of Abraham Lincoln.
But I do not forget that the brilliancy
of this administration owes a vast deb1
of gratitude to this iame man, James
G. Blaine, who as secretary of state has
formulated, brought forward and put in
active operation his new doctrine of
"reciprocity for the benefit of American
industries." I do not forget that had
it not been for the vigorous conduct of
Mr, Blaine, exercising the full power of
his office, that to-day there would be no
law upon the American statutes upon
which this doctrine could rest even, so
that the credit for eyen the originality
of the idea, to say nothing of its having
a foundation upon which to build, is
wholly, absolutely and entirely due to
the efforts of Mr. Blaine.
Neither do I forget that by reason of
the remarkable history of this great
man, and especially by reason of his
conspicuous stand before tbe American
public to-day as the champion of this
new doctrine, that hundreds of thous
of well-wishers~to the Republican
party have been given new hope, new
strength, and, if this doctrine can be
carried to a successful fend, anew lease
of party power.
In view of these things is it any won
der that whea an attorney in one of the
remote states of the Union, who has
been engaged to prosecute the divorce
proceedings of the wife of the "infant

son" of this great statesman, and whose
proceedings have been answered and
denied in court, sits himself down to
the task of informing the American
public that the brilliant career of this
great man is liable to be cut off by rea
son of these divorce proceedings, and
the leading Republican paper of the
Northwest sees fit to devote a half col
umn space repeatedly to the mouthings
of this attorney, I say, is it any wonder
that under these circumstances that a
few personal friends and warm admir
ers of Mr. Blaine, of whom opinions
were asked by your reporter, should
condemn this outrageous attack upon
the private and domestic relations of
the family of the greatest secretary
that this country has ever seen?
It is no argument for the editor of the
Tribune to reply to these criticisms that
"he has been called upon in the past to
defend the fame of James G. Blaine
against the attacks of these very men."
This was what the editor practically
said in his editorial this morning, but I
defy him to point out an instance in the
state of Minnesota or the Northwest
where a prominent Republican, whether
he was interviewed by the Journal yes
terday or not, ever uttered aught but
praise of the greatest American of the
century. No, Mr. Editor, the Republi
cans of the Northwest haye been too
true to the interests of Mr. Blaine to
have been guilty of any such conduct as
was insinuated by the editor of the Tri
bune. If that gentleman will -make a
canvass we will guarantee that instead
of finding "a half dozen gentlemen,"
who undertake to speak for Mr. Blaine
in Minneapolis and the state of Minne
sota, that he will easily find more than
half a million of people residing in
the aforesaid territory who will
speak as highly, with praises as
warm, of the secretary of state of the
United States, as any of the gentlemen
named can speak, and will resent as
quickly the infamous charges which
this Republican paper has already made
under a pretense that such things might
be said by the Democratic party in case
of the nomination of Mr. Blaine. This
is anticipating with a vengeance, and it
a character of anticipation that
should be rebuked by every Republican
in the Northwest, and the editor of the
Tribune will find, if he pursues this line
of policy that this sentiment is not the
sentiment of the few, but the religious
belief of the many, and that such publi
cations, whether by design or by acci
dent, whether the mouthings of a hired
attorney in a divorce snit, or the inven
tion of some gentleman who thinks he
is forwarding the interests of Gen. Har
rison, will be considered by the great
mass of the people as anything but a
tempest in a teapot,"
A strange disease has broken out
among the cattle in the town of Nicol
let. The animals are hrst taken with a
frothing at the mouth, lameness Jm

ing finally in abject weakness and

A man sixty-five years old was found
begging on the streets of St. Paul the
other day by the agent of a relief organ
ization. The agent tookoompassion on
the poor old fellow and, calling a po
liceman, ordered him taken to jail.
That of course, was as the Founder of
Christianity would have done under the
circumstances. The poor old beggar
felt the kindness so keenly that he
str|ightway hanged himself to a cross
beam of his cell but the rope broke
and a cruel policeman interfered to rob
him of a long sweet rest. Poverty is no
crime—oh, no.—Prison Nirror.
The late Mr. Florence used to preach
this practical temperance lecture. "If
you must drink," said he, "buy a gal
lon of whiskey at a time,and make your
wife the barkeeper. When you are dry
give her 15 cents for a drink, and when
the whiskey is gone she will have after
paying for it, $6.75 left, and every gal
lon thereafter will yield the same profit.
This money she 3hould put away, §0
that when you have become an inebriate
unable to support yourself,and shunned
by every respectable man, your wife
may have money enough to keep you
until your time comes to fill a drunk
ard's grave." Or better still, let
keep her profits until they are large
enough to enable you to take the bic
hloride of gold treatment Then if that
is successlul let her lay aside every week
the amount formerly spent foi whisky
and at the end of a few months you oan

much more cheerful conclusion.—Min
