For the benefit of business men, who may have ove looked our previous announcement the Globe wishes te aga;n explain that it has nothing to do with the curvass being made for advtMtifcirg for the Business Bulletin — so call >1 -to te issued in this paper. The parties ie hking 'he canvass have ergnged the necessary space in the Globe for the publication and there our connection with the businsss ends. We believe them to be honorable gentlemen.who will do what they agree with their customers; but the Globe declines to be responsible for adver tising agents not under its control. These gen meu occupy tho position of advertising agonts— no more, no less. The Globe sells its advertis ing space to any advertising airents who will pay its price and occupy the space with unobjection able matter. That is what has been done in this case, and we have no more to do with the business relations of the advertis ing agents, with their customers, or their meth ods of work, than we would have with a Chica go, New York or Boston agency who might con tract for space in our columns. This announce ment is mad», not with any design to reflect upon the parties who aro engaged In preparing this "Business Bulletin," but that there may be no iiiisunderstanding between tne Globe and the business public of the city. THIS GLOBE. The Globe this morning makes its first issue upon the new Hoe-Webb per fecting press, which,with its accompanying outfit, has been put in at an expense of over thirty thousand dollars. As is usual in inaugurating the use of new and elaborate maohinery, there are many obstacles and rough edges to be overcome, and the Globe has enoountered its full share in perfecting this enterprise. la presenting this issue the Globe does not wish to assume that it is a sam ple of what it will very soon be able to present to its thousands of friends and readers, and we only incidentally mention it this morning as the beginning of a new era in the publication, of the only exclu sively St. Paul morning English daily paper. With this we are content for the present. In a few days the Globe will appear dressed in new type, which, taken in con nection with the fact that it will hereafter be printed from stereotype plates, instead of direct from the type, will enable us to present a paper which will be typograph ically equal to any daily publication in the entire world. The capacity of the new press purchased by the Globe enables us to print fifteen thousand copies of an eight page paper per honr, or thiety thousand copies of a four page sheet. In other words, the white paper, starting on an endless roll at one end of the press, is delivered at the other end, printed upon both sides of the sheet, out, folded and pasted, at the rate of TWO HUKDKED AND FIFTY COMPLETE EIGHT PAGE PAPERS PEE MINUTE. Of the advantages which this offers, not the least will be the delivery of the papers by carriers at the most extreme city limits by or before 6 o'clock in the morning, an advantage which we are sure our city patrons will fully appreciate. Of other advantages,and a fuller descrip tion of the revolution which the Globe is inaugurating in all its departments, more detailed mention will be made at no dis tant day The Globe desires to emphasize, in this connection, the well-reoognized fact that it stands, with no divided heart or in terests, the staunch and stalwart friend of the city in which it is proud to be published. Every interest whioh tends to advance St. Paul will find in these col umns, at all times, hearty and cordial sup port. It advertises no other city to the disadvantage of St. Paul. Grateful for past support from the business publio of St. Paul, tho Globe hopes in its new de parture, to merit still greater patronage, a patronage whioh we trust will only be limited by the population of the city. The issue of the Globe this morning will be noticed as being eight columns to the page. Our mechanical facilities are now such that we can issue a sheet contain ing seven or eight columns to the page, as the demands of business may require. In our soven column form the columns are permanently lengthoned sufficient to add co the capacity of the sheet over six columns beyond our former size, and when a sheet the size of this issue of the Sunday Globe is printed, it is more than equiva lent to a ten page publication of our former proportions. Notwithstanding this enlargement and large expenditure, the Globe is supplied to city subscribers by carriors, seven issuaa per week, at seventy-five cents peb month, or six months in advance for foub poLLAas and a QUABTEB, or yearly in ad nince for might dollabs. So complete » G«wspsp«r npoo snob. terms,is placed within the reach of all, and I the Globe invites every resident of St. I Paul, not now on its list, together with I "the rest of mankind," to loae no time in I curing the model and consistent St. Paul ■ morning journal. H ■ A populab subscription has been started in Boston for a statue of Wendell Phillips. If the proposition eventuates in a sufficient sam it will be a different experience than that of the Bartholdi Btatue of Liberty or the Garfield monument. 1 For the moment a community is zealous, but the interest quickly fades and small sums are grudg ingly given, and finally the bestowing ceases entirely. A Cincinnati paper says the opari fes tival will bepin Monday night with Faust, "if there i 3 seventy feet of water in the Ohio river." There is nothing like grit and good cheer under adversity, find Cin cinnati has the daeh to be undisturbed by the music of tho •waters, bat welcomes the festival harmonies under the glare of electric and ca'.cinm lights which the floods have not quenched. The flood of high wafer at Cincinnati detained Matthew Arnold in that city and censed him to forego his engagement-to lecture in Louisville Thursday evening. Among tho memories of his visit to tho United States that Mr. Arnold will bear with him upon his return to England will be that of having seen an American river sixty feet above low water mark, the rain falling and the river rising, and uch an episode as that is surely some compensa tion for the profit and pleasure that sure ly would have followed a meeting with Kentackians in their repres9utative oity. Some other opportunity will afford Mr. Arnold tha happines3 the flood denied him. FAIUI'LIT. He that is with tin amoDR you, let him first cist a stoiio at her.—John, 6; 7. Perhaps among the many yea pictures drawn by the disciples of the events in the life of Jesus, none presents more striking contrasts in light and shade than that of the accusation of the Magdalen. Christ is seated in the temple, and before him are the accusers and the aeon sod. The former,respeotable men, of the Btraightest sect of the Pharisees; the latter.a woman whose guilt is unquestioned. As these men, in the old, old fashion of Adam, ac cuse the woman, and assert that by the law of Moses she ought to be stoned, the om nisoent eye of Jesus reads the most secret thoughts of their hearts, and when they ask of him "What sayeat Thou ?" he replies: "He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her." The question of the treatment of fallen women has been agitated enough, if agitation alone would do any good, to have brought about better results than has yet been secured. No one questions their weakness and sin, but can they be redeem ed? Homes have been built, or more oorreot tly, houses have been erected, somewhat after the manrcr of pest houses, where un fortunates guilty of the same sins are gathered together to be reformed. The analogy holds good in the treat ment they receive. Advice and assistance are freely bestowed, but not for one mo ment are they allowed to forget that they are fallen women; the horrible taint of their sin, like the contagion of the small pox or leprosy, forbids any near approach, and clings to them still. May not the failure of the reformatory movement for this class be traced to three causes? Its injustice, its lack of hearty sympathy, and its want of hope. Wise philanthropists have opened asy lums for inebriate men and women and many have been redeemed by their efforts, and restored to their homes, and to lives of usefulness. An inebriate man is considered by them a drunkard just" the same as an inebriate woman, and needs the care and correction of the institution in a like degree. Insane men. we con sidered just a3 crazy and as dangerous as insane women. It is only homes for the reformation of the impure that are partial in their character. The leader? in this moral reform movement nave given no thought to the multitudes of fallen debased men. Who ever heard of a refuge for them? Is there no reformation possible for them; or is impurity no sin when a man is the sinner? Has the pitch of vice no defilement for a man when it makes a woman so black and loathsome? This injustice is one is one important reason why all measares looking to the reformation of fallen wo men have proved so abortive. These wo men know that they are no worse than their male companions; their degradation is equal. Why, then, should they enter a refuge with others branded like themselves, while their associates go about honored by Lien, and are welcomed guests in the homes of the lady patrons of their refuge? If un chaeity is allowable in a man, by what law of right or justice is a bad woman consid ered so fallen and in such need of refor mation? Knowing how unjustly they are treated is it any wonder that they grow hardened and insensible to all efforts made to keep them from sin? Injustice drives more people into sin and hardens them in it than almost any other cause. In its train follow anger, reckless ness, despair and ruin. Build homes for lost women and reformatories for lost men. ; ::'-''vf A lack of sympathy prevents any great results in reclaiming this olas3. The dis tribution of tracts on the subject of moral reform, or diatribes on the intrinsic beauty of virtue, are like offering stones for bread. Giving them shelter and food, kind .and gracious as tha charity is, will never ap peal to the better feelings, which ara never wholly lost, like sympathy aßd love. In our intercourse with these unfortu nates we are apt to for get '' that, although . Binners, . they are human. Many of them are intelligent and shrink from the scorn and shame that covers them. "A word fitly spoken" is just as good when addressed to a Magda len as to any other miserable sinner. "But how can I, a virtuous woman, sympa thize with such an outcast?" asks some respectable member of society. "She an outcast!" By whose command is she cast out? Is the sin of impurity the unpar donable sin? Is the free use of a tongue, "that 33 set on fire of hell," a less offense? Is selfishness so absorbing, that one's eyes are closed to other's misery, and one's ears ara deaf to the cries of hunger and want a smaller sin? "I, a virtuou3 woman!" Into the exactly balanced scales of divine justice are cast all our thoughts and de sires as well as outward acts. I'he lew of Heaven is whoso looketh with impure eyes is guity. Besides if virtue is so dear, so precious to as, have we no sympathy for thoso who - have lost it? Have we no sympathy or tenderness for tha blind be-.' cause we can see, or are we insensible to the sufferings cf the sick, because we are well? Not until wo approach these, women with true sympathy '^ad love, instead of driving full tilt at them, mounted en the ho!? 1 ©£ duty t clad in, the complete pino- _ iMifi JSiX. fAuli ftuiXi-/AI txijv/7-/18, SUINUAX MUxtrTllfGr rLjBKuASY 10, ISS-4j ply of oaf own virtue, 1' shall we restore H them to lives of purity - and happiness. H Another reason for the only partial sno-M 88 of moral reform-; movements is itsH utter lack of hope for this life for those itl would aid. "■ They offer a hope for the lifeH to come, bat for that "that now is," thereH is absolutely none. When once a woman falls she can never rise again; she mayH crawl, bat she most always wear theH "scarlet letter." She may repent, andH with tears of bitterest shame tarn, sayingH "I repent," but there i 3 no Bethesda onH ■ earth where she oan wash and be clean. Those, who heard the bitter cry of the "New Magdalen" "I cannot get back," ap plauded the incomparable actress, * but how many heard in that cry the echo of the wail of hundreds of lo3t women against whom the dcor of hope is shut? What do your Christian homes offer to them To walk the weary treadmill of duty day after day, bearing their burden of shame; seeing their sinful accomplices walking with erect head, honored and happy, knowing that all other sinners oan lay their burdens at the foot of the cross, while they must carry theirs to the very brink of the river of death. Undntiful and in sensible are they? Pat yourself in their place, disgraced,' dishonored, with no com panions but those like themselves, without hope and smarting under the sense of in justice, what would you do? The strangest and most inexplicable tiring about the whole matter is that the fiercest aDd most bitter accusers of fallen women are women themselves. Men denounce them, and hard ly grant them the graoe of humanity; and when any zealous spirit among them essays the role of reformer, the first stone is invariably thrown at the Magdalen. It is safe for they have no vote, and as a rule are unfamiliar with the pistol. Bat in abhorrence and scorn for these Pariahs of society, guarded and re spectable women surpass men. They fear lest the hem of their garments should brush one of them. They look upon them as lepers, and because they are dumb, these enlightened women cry out for them "unclean." There is no place on earth where a lost woman's sin will not find her out. Ther9 in contamination in hearing her story. Refined Christian parents may take their daughters to hear ; "Richard Third," or "The ii'ool'o Revenge," and suffer no oon tamination, for the play portrays a man's sin. But what incalculable injury may done them in hearing how Mercy Merrick was sinned against, and how she "tried to get back." It is this sentimental, unreasona ble, unjust affectation of virtue and religion that drives souls for whom Christ died to ruin; that thwarts our best endeavors; and gives men license to sin. Do you think that you, who have never been tempted, oan prize virtue as that des pairing wretch who has lost it? She may be a vile, hardened sinner now but who helped her on her downward road? "Woe unto him by whom offenses come," said Christ. There is no Christianity in such treatment of the erring. It is no proof of the possession of virtue to shrink, like the mimosa fur fear of contamination. A pure heart is the best safeguard against the conta gion of vice. The sinless Son of God could talk with them and receive services of kindness jrom them. When the ac cusers went out self oonvioted, and left Jeasns with the guilty woman, he asked, "Hath no man condemned thee?" and when she replied, "No man, Lord," he said "Neither do I condemn thee, go and sin no more." "Speak gently to the erring, Oil, do not thou forget, However, darkly stained with sin, She is thy sister yet; Heir of the self-same heritage, Child of the self-same God; . She hath but stumbled in the path Thy feet in /weakness trod." CURRENT COMMENT. Mrs. John A. Dix, recently deceased at the ago of seventy-seren years was a lady of decided mental characteristics aid powers, and was the close companion and counsellor of her husband in his long period of public life. She exerted a large influence in the formation of the school system in New York when Gen. Dix was state school commissioner, a system so admirable that its prominent features have been engrafted upon the school systems of a dozen states or more, particularly in the west. Mrs. Dix and Mrs. Wm. H. Seward were the two most notable women New Yor» has ever produced, and through the happy influence they possessed with their husbands their impress upon the current times in their large opportunities for usefulness have never been equaled by any American ladies, and probably never will be. The Hartford Courant, very nearly the oldest of the New England papers, in a memorial to Wendell Phillips with touching retrospection says that New England "hardly seems like New England with Emerson and Longfellow and Theodore Parker and Garrison, and now Wendell I'hillips gone out from it. The work will no di.ubt continue to get itse f done, and the word of prophecy to get itself uttered in some ade quate fashion, But, for those of us who are getting on in years, the new voices—be they ever so inspiredwill not have the authority and charm of the old ones." How surely and eloquently the mind is carried, by such com ment into the by-gone days that mark the centu ry more vividly than any in the whole history of men and events. The Philadelphia Press does not pay Senator Mitchell a compliment of any particular magni tude in making the statement that Senator Don Cameron, although a very sick man and now in the mountains of Switzerland, continues to con trol matters relating to Pennsylvania in the United States senate. The Senator's trusted Lieutenants, of whom Col. Quay is chief, acting under his inspiration, leava no space to be occu pied by the junior Senator from the Key-stone state. When Mitchell first entered the senate he hesitated to stand for his rights and he lost them all, disappointing his frieuda, and materi ally strengthening and prolonging the reign of bossism, when he mitjht have overthrown it. Fcneeal corteges in some of the deserted far eastern hamlets must be rather picturesque affairs if the following is a typical one: *'In accordance with his request, no minister officiated. An ancient colored woman, known as 'Old Car'line,' read a hymn; there was some singinsr, and the hearse was followed by a large hack, three buggies, one omnibus," two grocery wagons and a butcher cart, containing those attending the funeral." When the Crown Prince of Germany made his recent visit to Italy the Italian Queen sent to Berlin for a cook bo that she might serve hit favorite dishes for him the style of the Father land, 'i his is rather in contrast with the atten tion shown Alfonso of Spain on his visit to Paris when police protection was necessary for hi personal safety," which occurred at about th'< same time, bat' probably there is about the: game couuast between the two men. The school district libraries of the state oI New York have in the last thirty years received from the treasury $1,665,000, but the numbei of volumes in the libraries has run down ron 1,604,210 to 701,675. No proper care is exercisec I in supervision of the books, purchases are inju H dicious, and made of such publications as wil I net the book-buyer the largest personal commis I sion. H A Chinese joss house or sacred temple is tc Ibe erected in Denver, Co!o-s-io. There are tw( ■ warring factions of celestials in that city and ii ■ is believed that the temple will have a \ peacef a ■ influence over them.

H IN a London court a lady, Miss Weller ie I prosecuting a suit - for braach of promise, and I her lawyer's name ie Dickens • . • AMUSEMENTS. $ I If Mrs. Thespia. the patron taint of the H drama, has a tithe of the tender feeling so I characteristic of her gender, she has just I occasion for shedding a few tears at the lamentable low tide of dramatics affairs in this city daring the past week. If the truth must be told, the worthy dame went a begging, for the weak ja*t closed was entirely destitute of .anything in the way of drama. iAt the beginning of the week "Calfee's Wonderland" viiws aeld the ', board? of the Grand, and for - some reason too inscrutable to fathom - this really ex cellent entertainment was given to beg garly houses. But such, as the office Mul doon remarks, is life in the great north west. On Thursday an immense audience gathered at the Grand to hear the .melodies of T'harsby, the great pianist, and the Choral society. The programme was a rare one and it was lively given. Com mr/ Event*. This week we are to be favored witlf two firat-class entertainments, . be icg Stetson's "Monte Cristo" company, and the "Queen's Lace Handkerchief by the New York Opera company. • Of the play of "Monte Ori3to," which is presented to-morrow evening, we . have heard nothing but praise. . In referring to the play an exchange says: ■£>;■; ; One of the grandest and most successful engagements of the present season was the New Year's attraction at Gomstook'a. John Stetson's magnificent company, headed by the great and versatile actor, James O'Neill, presented the "Count of Monte Cristo" to three packed houses, in which standing room was at a premium. The play is as interesting as it was when Feohter presented it thirteen years ago, and as it is in the popular vein of melo drama, and has all the important accesso ries for a successful presentation, it could not fail to draw large and delighted audi enoes. The play could not include one tenth of the kaleidoscopic feature of the book from whence it was derived, and as it is now, it is very difficult to follow, but it is none the less interesting and fascin ating for all that. O'Neill in the title role is wonderful, and one cannot help investing him with a kind of superstitions awe, as his enemies fall before him. Be has some thrilling scenes, and carries his audience with him by the intensity of his acting. In all hie disguises he is easy, natural and earnest, which is the highest praise that could be given him; for he is the most natural and realistic actor on the stage, and belongs to an entirely different school from Barrett and his olass. Frederic Deßelleville, the second in the oast, showed great versatility, and won fre quent plaudits by his fine acting. Boniface as "Villefort" showed that he had not lost his hold of the public. J. W. Shannon as "Caderouosse" carried the comedy nicely, and relieved the gloom of the play some what. . ' Forrest Robinson is a clever and pains taking young acter, and as "Albert De Morcerf" he proved a decided suocess. Miss Eugenic Blair as "Mercedes" pleased the audience by her fine acting and good delivery. She is a most beautiful young lady, dressed elegantly and in good taste, and withal makes a most charming stage appearance. The balance of the cast was very good, and the scenery was the best ever seen in this city. The Queen's Lace Handkerchief. On Thursday evening next the New York Opera company open a brief engagement at the Grand, with the presentation of "The Queen's Lace Handkerchief." Per haps no better notice could be given in advanoe than the following eulogy which appeared in the New York Herald: The New York Opera company in "The Queen's Lace Handkerchief." The per formance at the Grand Otr.-ra house last evening was one that made one's thought tarn back to the days of chivalry. The scenery and costumes were in keeping ?,ith the opera, which presented a scene of royal magnificence. "The Queen's Lace Hand kerchief" is one of the finest light operas that we know of, full of beautiful airs, striking incidents, and wit ty dialogue. It was produoed last, even ing by an exceptionally fine cast, and the choruses were strong and well balanced. There were several scenes in the opera where the chorus and principal singers unite in r grand vocal effort, but we think the finest one was at the close of the sec ond act, when a magnificent double quar tet, the chorus and orchestra produced such a grand and inspiring effect that it called forth loud and prolonged applause. It would be hardly safe to praise any par ticular singer without doing injustice to the others. The leading parts were per formed by Messrs. Joseph S. Greensfelder, C. M. Pike and Herr Gustave Adolphi, and Misses Fannie Redding, Louise Manfred, Louise Searle and Helen Cooper. During the evening Miss Redding was presented with some floral gifts. The opera will be presented ; this ajd to-morrow evenings, and to morrow afternoon. The Athenaeum. The dramatic division of the German society, having given "His Mephisto" and "The Best Tone," since our last report from this place of amusement, are now rehearsing "Preeiosa," the highly popular operatic play in five acts, by Wolff, the beautiful music beinz composed by Carl Maria yon Weber. This play, whioh, by the way, furnishes the fundamental plot of "The Bohemian Girl," and other operas and plays of a like romantic character, will be put upon tne boards in a style worthy of it 3 beautiful and rythmio lan- Hguage, as well as of the charming and Hclassic music of its immortal composer. Ha large mixed chorus of young Indies and Hmale voices are busily engaged in praotio- Hing the vocal score, while Seibert's aug- Hmented orchestra will furnish the instru- Hinental accompaniments and selections. Hn«w and handsome costumes will be pro- H viced and all accessories carefully attended Hto, so as to make the coming performance Hof the play a gala occasion and one long Hto be remembered by the numerous Hpatrons of the house. It is expected and Hintended that the play will be ready for HrencUtion about the first week of March. BOHEMIAN BA.Ii-MA.SQUE, I The Bohemian society of pioneers had Htheir annual masquerade last evening, and Has is always the case with the members of Hthis organization, they entertained a large Hnumber of visitors and guests, to a very Hen joy able and in all respeots successful Hentertainment. H C VALISTIC . I On this evening the German society hold Hit.- first carnivalistio session at the Athe- Hnjenm, preliminary to the - annual grand ■carnival masquerade of the society, which Hthis season takes place on Monday the H2sth inst., and to which only subscribers will be admitted as participants to the Hpleasurea and privileges of the floor, which Hot course will be Btriotly reserved to mask- Hers. The committee who are in charge of Hthe carnival have frequent sessions, and it I may be set down that while the society Hdoes not promise to eclipse or equal the Hcarnival festivals of the ancient city ,of I Cologne, nor to foolishly attempt to imi- Htate the renowned "Mardi. Graa" of New HOrleaus or Memphis, (especially on aMon- Hday,) if only by cheap clap-trap, that noth- Hing will be left undone to make the carni- Hval festival of the German H society ' the feature of the entertainments of the season If or this city and state. The session this to which the public are invited, to be a grand and worthy inau- Hguration of what is to come, and a most odd and humorous programme Hhas been provided. The whole entertain- Hment is fashioned after the Rhenish style Hand pattern, which in Europe is considered Hthf! thing, whiie the songs, declamations, Hsddresses, etc., are original, of local sig- and sure to be highly relished. Hseibert will furnish fine instrumental Hmusic and each visitor will be presented H with a carinavalistio remembrance, in the shape of a -'fool's o:p" to bo worn during the evening and afterwards disposed of at pleasure, on the theory that "A little nousensa new and then. Is relished by the best o* men." A rioh, anti-dyspeptic laugh and grow fat, olla-podrida 3ort of entertainment, ought to be welcome ard highly relished by all who have never been throngh a Rhenish carnivalistic mill with tno old fashioned hopper wide open. LEAP TEAS ETIQUETTE. The ladies of the German society, not to be outdone by the male members in pro viding for the general amusement, have ar ranged a leap year ball, to take place to morrow evening at the Athenaeum, for which Siebert's orohestra will furnish the music, and the success of which 13 well as sured by the spirit which animates the fair managers, and the large number of tickets already sold. The Indies of the dramatic division notably have been uniting in ar ranging the preliminary matters, and will insist on "Leap Ye^r Etiquette" to be etriotly observed. Lady cashiers, door keepers, floor managers, anti ho3tes3eß gen erally will be something aniqne and un common, while many a young and manly heart will audibly palpitate while on the anxious seat waiting to be "engaged for the next Newport, Sir f" The ladie3 have mag nanimously arranged their dancing pro gramme so, however, that it will contain one or more "gentlemen's choioe," so that no one need feur to wi'her as a loneiy wall flower. Great fun and a merry time is anticipated, and will no doubt be had to a full degree. OPEBATIO. The second carnivaiistio evening by the the German society will be held en next Sunday eveain/, on which occasion the Maennerchor, assisted by Madame lima aiid Seibert's large orchestra, will pro duce Julius Otto's beautiful oomic opera of "Die Mordsrrundbrack." Thi3 opera ha? been rendered here ere now in years gone by, but more in the shape of a burlesque with a male falsetto singing the part of "Amalgemde," but this occasion will be the first on which a lady will assume the role. Rehearsals have been frequent and the composition, ludicrous in text, but beauti ful in melodies, will experience a revival, the like of whioh has never been in this city or elsewhere. Of course, the entire work will be given in full costume and with all appointments necessary for its first class production. SCIENTIFIC The German Literary society has suc ceeded in prevailing upon Dr. Brehro, the eminent German savant, zoologist and profound student of natural history, to favor our citizens wii.h one of his intensely interesting leotures, of whioh more anon, a 9 soon as date, place and theme are de termined. Dramatic Xotes, Eeene made an immense hit in New York. The "Princess Ida" will be produced at the Fifth Avenue theater this week. "The Alpine Roae" is drawing big audi ences at the Madison Square theater, New York. Truing and the Lyceum Theater com pany play their return Chioago engage ment this week. "Confusion" has been the greatest suc cess at the Fifth avenue theater since Daly produced "Pique" there. J. K. Emmet made a fizzle in New York lately. Ie seems that Uacle Fritz haa reached tho end of his string. Supp6's latest comic opera "A Trip to Africa," will be brought out in Boston in grand style in a couple weeks. Mr?. Langtry has been playing in "A Wife's Peril" at the Boston Globe. Her receipts for six evenings and two matinees were over $12,000. The scenic artist of the Grand, Mr. Davis, is doing some admirable work on the drop and when finished it will be a thing of great beauty. Lotta and Miunie Palmer have had a quarrel. Lottie accused the nimble Min nie of "faking" her paints in ''My Sweet heart," and this led to the rumpus. Raymond has shelved hia play " Fresh." It was a 20 degree below zero play, and the old man say 3he will Btiokto"For Congress " until the close of the season. John McCallough and Henry Irving will follow Modjeska at the Star theatre, New York, McCullough for two weeks and Ir ving for four so that the dates are well filled. Mis 3 Genevieve Ward, now on her way to India, expects to appear at Melbourne, Australia, in March. Meantime several thieves are making us) of her play of For get-Me-Not in this country. Mr. C. A. Chizzola will have the direc tion of Adelaide Ristori's American tour, under Messrs. Brooks <fc Dickson's man agement, next season. She will appear in Mary Stuart, Elizabeth, Macbeth and Marie Antoinette —all in the English lan guage, whioh she now speaks with much flaeuoy.

The com pany includes Patti and Gerster, und it is to be hoped that arrangements will be made for their early appearance in this city. Miss Emma Abbott, who, by the way, is with her Eaglish Opera company, en route for San Francisco, says, speaking of her southern tour: "At Little Rook we had the queerest theater to play in, and I had to embrace Fauat through a little odd window, standing on a chair with a sick leg. I thought 1 should have a rare tumble, but I didn't." Emma Thur3by is getting herself into hot water. She was billed in Rochester, Minn., one day last week, and in the face of a $300 advance sale, canceled her date. The local managers are in her track, how ever, one of them having actually come to Chioago for the purpoee of seeking re dress. Poor Thursby!—Chicago News Letter. During the last scene of "Riohard III,' at the Portland (Me.) theater, recently, in the combat between Richard and Rich mond, Mr. Keene's sword broke, snapping off some six inches from the hilt.

Taglioni, the oelebrated ballot dancer, has just died al the age of eighty. A generation ago Mme. Taglioni was the envy of all stage dancers in Europe, her exquisite airy style being said to realize the poetry of motion. After her marriage in 1847 to Count Gilbert de Voisins, Tag lioni left the stage. During the Franco- Geiman war she was left a widow, and having lost all her property, she gained a livelihood by teaohing dancing in London. There are wide differences in the critical opinions of Mary Anderson's Clarice. George Augustus Sala pronounces it a brilliant triumph. He says she showed mimetic powers of a very high order, and carried the house by storm. The critic of the Times wri'es: "Heavy-footed impa3 siveness weighes upon all her efforts to be sprightly." Edmund Yates, in the World, says she has not been endowed with the eaored fire given only to the few. "She lacks subtlety, grace and repose." And yet, despite the face that the majority of the oritios are against her, the popularity of the brilliant American actress is con stantly on tho increase. Three London 'managers have placed theaters at her; dis posal on the termination of h?r engage ment at the ■ Lyceum.''

Chicago, Feb. —A meeting of promin ent citizens and musicians was held this afternoon for the purpose of canvassing a project of holding a grand opera festival in Chicago during the season of 1885. Colonel Mapleson was present, and cor dially endorsed the movement, and be lieved it could ba made a great success. A committee of eight prominent citizen*, including T. W. Peck, Win, Perm Nixon, Joseph Medill and Sila3 G. Pratt, was ap pointed to confer with Mapleson as to the terms and expenses. Mapleson stated, in the event the committee agreed to the terms, he would ask no guarantee fund, as the game had proven unnecessary at Cin cinnati. The project includes the con struction of a hell within the exposition building of 8,000 seating capacity. Opera for the Buffer**** Chicago, Feb. 9. —In view of the calam ity which has befallen Cincinnati, Col. Mapleson has decided to postpone the opera season which was to begin there next Monday, for the present. In consequence his entire company will remain here next week. At the suggestion of Patti and Gerster, Mapleaon intends to organiza a special performance to begin in this city next week, the proceeds to be transmitted for the relief of the flood sufferers. THE COPPERS WIX. An Exalting Tor of War at the Gymna slum Itthv.nu Member* of tie Police Force and the Athletic Club-The For mer Victorious. Last night a trial of <strength took place at tha gymnasium between six mem bers of the Athletic club, and .-ix picked men of the police force; and that great interest was felt in the trial of muscle, was shown by tho number of people present. The c intent was to be the "tug of war," whioh (for the benefit of the unin itiated we explain) is made in this way. The men composing the opposing factions take hold of the opposite ends of a rope, in the center of which is tied a knot, and that side which draws the knot over on to their side—the man with it generally—is the victor. On the floor are cleats nailed to give the men good foothold. The following men took their positions at the end of the rope representing the civic forces: Officers Smith, Welch, Dn fort, Carey, Clans and Collall, big men, some of them almost giants. At the other end of the rope were Messrs. Barnes, Galvin, Fitzpatrick, Murphy, Harrity and Byrne—all excepting Byrne, almost pig mies compared to their opponents, but they were muscular and well knit and whatever might have been the opin ion at the first blush the moment the men sat down to their work it was evident that they were better matched than appear ances warranted. As the men stood await ing the signal the sight was worth seeing, not th; athletes, but the lookers on, ail eager and anxious and breathlessly, im patient as if they were about to witness a bull fight or badger bate or eating matoh or cock lighter some other such soul inspiring sanguinary exhibition. But if there were eager faces and strained eye balls at first, what was it when the "tug of war" began in earnest? With suppressed breathing and intensity of enthusiasm, the perspiration st'jod upon the faces of the lookers on thicker and heavier than it did upon the contestants. For four long minutes the men held steadily and fit inly, the vantage being on neither side; fifteen peconds more and the ropo seemed to give towards the club; another quarter of a minute under the encouraging calls of Chief Clark, the polioe seemed to be re gaining the few thousandths of an inch lost; then oheer upon cheer and enthusi astic calls for the men to pull and pull to gether, the imperceptible yielding became more apparent, and at last the knot was drawn over the line, and victory was yell ingly proclaimed for . the police. Time, four minutes, thirty-seven seconds. The victory, however, was not yet, for it was ascertained that Call, the last man on the police rope, had the rope twisted about his loins, he having asked a bystan der so to place it, and on these grounds Mr. Barnes claimed a foul. He, however, gave way and conceded the first trial to the police. Jnst before the second trial was about to commence, the mayor asked of the club to pull with five men in place of six, as one of the policemen had injured himself. This Barnes was willing to do, but his men objected, and it being found that Call, the injured man, was all right again, the second trial was made. But this was short, quick and decisive, lasting only three seconds, and was in favor of the club. The Globe did not see if there was any special cause for the unexpectedly quick viotory. His eyes were fastened on the rope at the center— the rope tightened and held steady two seconds, and then began to slip rapidly towards the club side. Ringing cheers from friends of the athletes announced the victory. The third and last trial was a little long er, but not 90 stubbornly contested as the first. It took two minutes and one second, and was won by the police. In this last the club team were unfortunate, their second man, Galvin, placed his foot solid against a cleat, but his slipper burst ojm pletely open, letting out his foot and throwing him underneath the first man, impeding him also. In extricating him self from under the rope and the first man, the whole burden fell upon the other four, and they of course gave way. The police having won two trials out of the three were deolared the winners. It was announced that the next contest will take place in three weeks. It was stated that these contests were for a gold medal given by the Athletic club, and it is to be won twice out of three times. Last evening gave the first to the police. Hlf they prove victors once more they win I the prize. It is then to be contested for I individually by the men of the winning I team. H After the tug of war for the H amusement of those assembled, I several sparring matohes were H given by the members of the club and H others, the most interesting being that be-. ■ tween Officer Barney Smith and Joe Jef- H ferson. V H At the conclusion of the "games" Mr. Barnes announced that the gymnasium I would be open at all times for the polioe, I should ■any of them desira to . praotioe for I the contests, to come or practice gym- I nasties. . : H The police force •" return. thanks :to Mr. H Barnes, the manager of the gymnasium I hall, for tendering tha use of .the same to I them at any time . they may desire ,to use it. . : DISCRIMINATION, r- I .. .

HJ Id was then voted that the following H resolutions adopted by the Grand Fork's I convention, be presented to Mr. Manvel at H once by a committee ooneistiog of James HJ Langton, of Pembina; E. 0.

I Hill and Manvel, wbioh was arranged for I 2p.m. on Monday, The resolutions are I as follows: H First. To endeavor to secure the privilege of shipping grain to Milwaukee or Chicago with out breaking bulk. -.1':". Hecom!. Allowing responsible parties to erect elevators along their lino of railroad, of not less than fifteen thousand (15,000) bushels ca pacity. .Third.

In quite an animated discussion in re gar.l to the oommittee'H staying over to if posiible secure an answer, yea or no, to their demands and as to how soon the re quired changes would be made, the mem bers mado some very kindly ullusions to Mr. Manrel, whom they asserted was a friend to the agricultural interests of the I Red River valley. It was said that I if the matter could be decided by him I it would be satisfactorily settled and with- I oat delay. Bnt they knew that Mr. Man- 1 vel was handicapped. Thnt ho was aubor- I dinate to a higher power, which was Pres-1 ident Hill, who was the big bull in the I field to be placated and who would give ths positive answer when it was given. The decision was finally reached that the committee would stay over until Monday, hold another meeting at the Merchants at 9 a. m , and meet the railroad authorities for their answer to the resolutions at the Manitoba office at 2 p. m. Mr. Faulkuer, chairman of a committee for that purpose, reported that he had vis ited the freight agents of all the railroads but the St. Louis that morning and ob tained their tariff sheets for carrying grain from competitive points in Northern Minnesota and Dakota and laying it down in the central markets. He had been nsed with great courtesy by the several freight I agents, and being an old railroad auditor, I it was voted that he should tabulate the I valuable information gained and present I it to the committee of the whole Monday I morning. . I j The committee visited Minneapolis in the I afternoon and visited Pillsbury A mill un der escort of Sir. Pillsbury personally, and the most of them returned to St. Paul in the evening, and will attend the morning service at Plymouth chnroh on special in vitation of the pastor, Rev. Dr. Dana. On Monday they will take train for home, and to the country which raises the best wheat in the world. This fact they know, and that the hard wheat which they raise is the article which millers must have for body to mix with a softer grain for a white color, to supply a world's demand for the best Hour made. 422 Wabasbaw steeet seemed more like a state fair, for the patt SO days, than an assignment sale. AMONG TUB APACHES. Interesting Lecture by Col. Uses Last Evening on Ills .Experiences Among the Indians. Last evening Col. Gnido lies gave one of the most interesting lectures at Sher man Hall, that has ever been delivered in this city. It was full of fine descriptive and painting of wild scenes, replete with anecdotes, personal adventnres,and events of soul-stirring interest. The account of the rescue of little Ernest Ami lan from the Indians was a romance in itself, The following synopsis only gives a faint outline of the lecture, which should have been heard by all lovers of adventure and travel . Colonel Ilges prefaced his lecture with the remark that the subject upon which he was about to speak, was probably nqt a new one to most of his auditors, and that if he himself failed to fulfil the requirements of a public lecturer, he had hopes that during the course of the evening he would say something new and interesting, which might in some degree compensate his kind hearers for thoir presence. He then took hi? subject in band and for one hour and a half gave the audience a word picture of his experience among the Apaches. The introduction was the journey from Hrns Island, New York harbor, in 18G5, the crossing of the Isthmus of Panama, with all its troubles in transporting a large regiment, mostly consisting of bounty jumpers, thieves and ot.er outlaws, and their final arrival at San Francisco. He gave some humorous descriptions of the short stay at the Presidio barracks, and explained to the audience the position and duties of an officer's servant, who ia called "striker," or more commonly "dog robber." After that came the march to his post, Fort Grant, passing Fort Yuma, where the thermometer is 127 degrees below zero, and whence the ~ bad soldier who dies ; there, . takes with ' him his blankets, for fear of freezing in j the ' in fernal region?. The description of the many dirt mounts (graves) along' the road, after the column entered the territory of Arizona, was graphic and thrilling.- The crossing of the Gila desert with its treach erous mirage or "fata morgana" and the loss of aotne of the enlisted men from thirst and hunger after losing their bear ing on this sandy ocean, excited the sym pathies of the hearers. Then came the march into the San Pedro mountains, where Fort Grant is situated, and in the neighborhood of which Col. Uges di«covared the remains of Captain Miller (nephew of Senator Miller of Cali fornia), of Dr. Stanton (nephew of then secretary of war), and of nine soldiers and teamsters, who had been surprised and killed two daj3 previous by the Mescal and Touto Apaches. The colonel then proceeded to give a de tailed de»oription of the arrival at the post, and the departure of the California volun teers, whom he came to relieve with his command. Then followed a series of en counters with the Apaches, showing the craftiness of this wily foe, and many of Ul treacherous and mnrderoin deeds. The ruo*t interesting portion of tho lecture was devoted by the colonel to the capture of a white boy named Earnest Amalunv, whose family had been massacred a few months before the colonel's arrival in Ari zona, and who himself, a mere baby scarce ly one year old, whs carried into the moun tains. It soern*, that the late Int. Lieut. Calhonn, of (he 2d cavalry, and a brother ia-law of the late Gen. Ouster (both fall ing side by side at the well known ma -na cre on the upper Yellowstone country,) was at that time the post adjutant of Fort Grant, and to him Colonel Ilgea entrusted a night attack upon the Apaches in 18G7. . The expedition resulted in scattering of the marauders and cap turing of the little daughter of a Final Apache chief, who was, from the fact of limit six toes on each foot, a renowned medicine girl, endowed with healing and other supernatural powers. The possession of this valuable ohilJ, of royal blood, gave the colonel un oppor tunity to negotiate for an exchange with the powerful chief. The incidents of the capture of the In dian girl and the recovery of the white boy were listened to with the closest attention by a seemingly pleased audience. Col. Ilge3 stated that at the time not knowing anything about the history of the boy or the whereabouts of any of his relatives, he legally adopted him, and soon after reoov ery Bond him to school in San Bernardino, Oal., and from there in 1870 to Europe, where he is taken care of by the colonel's and bis own relatives, who reside in Ger many and Austria. After several minute descriptions of cam paigns and dealings with the Indians, the colonel proceeded to give his recollection of their modes of life, their habits, their moral (?) natnres, their treat ment of women, and finally gave a few in teresting recitals of some of their beauti ful traditions, which oame to him from their own lips. It Is unfortunate that the audience was not greater, but the evening was injndl oiously selected, and the lecture and topic were insufficiently advertibed and under stood. We learn from the colonel that he will deliver hit* lecture in German some even ing this week, after which he will at once proceed to Washington on business of his own. ■ A Card from to', Ilgm.
