The matter of grading Cherry street from Hoffman avenue to Maria avenue, was re ferred to the Fifth ward member. The petition of Peter H. Tierney that the board review its action in deducting $8,254 from his several contract estimates for grad ing was denied, as also the application of Michael O'Brien for the return of $315 on his contract estimates for paving Fort street. No abatement was allowed Mary McDer mott on north sixty feet of lots 8 and 9, block 1, Leech's addition. The over assessment of W. H. Glenny on Sherman street was voted to be corrected.

The board voted to make adverse report in the matter of opening and extending Wa verly street through block 5 of Bass' outlots, between Westminster street and Lafayette avenue, on the council order when the own er dedicates fifteen feet. An adverse report was also given in the matter of grading Whital street from Westminster street to Payne ave nue, because petition was not accompanied by the names of a majority of property own ers. The following were referred to the en gineer for plans and specifications of costs: Grading of Fifth street from Maria avenue to Maple street; grade of Banfil street from Seventh to Forbes street, and sewer on Mis sissippi street from Nash street to Pennsyl vania avenue.

Resolved further, that the Council be asked to appropriate the necessary bonds to carry on said work. Adjourned. NO TICK. The Members of the Board of Trade Decide That They Will Give No Credit in Future. There was an especial meeting of the mem bers of the board of trade yesterday, called for the purpose of taking into consideration the system of credit as now prevailing in the commission and general produce business. It was stated in these columns a few days ago that the matter would ultimately culmi nate by being brought before the board in a formal way. Mr. Grant submitted a resolution which in its preamble called attention to the facts al ready reported, and binding the members of the board to hang up in their business prem ises and offices, in conspicuous places, a card stating that on and after a specified time no credit would be given,, but that all transac tions would be on a cash basis. The resolu tion called forth considerable discussion, in which the majority of the speakers approved the resolution, while others saw some diffi culty in carrying it out. It was finally agreed that the resolution be referred to a committee for consideration, with instructors to report to the board. The president appointed Messrs. Grant, Menk and Bohrer to act as a committe, when the meeting adjourned. Immediately after the above meeting there was held the regular meeting of the directors of the board. The only business brought be fore the meeting was a report from the com mittee appointed to confer and arrange with the chamber of commerce for leasing part of the new chamber of commerce building. The committee reported that the chamber had refused to accept the board's terms and substituted others in which the chamber demanded §1,800 rent and that the board should buiid partitions, etc., pay water and gas rates 20 per cent, of repairs of the whole building and a percentage of taxes, and as the commrttee had not been empow ered to accept such terms they reported and asked to be dismissed. Mr. McCanley spoke at some length upon the chamber's proposition, in which he could see a very much greater expense to the board than appeared on the surface. He said the cost was at first to be §1,000 and then §800 were added to cover the expense of fitting up for them and now they (the chamber) wanted the board to do the building and pay besides. He proposed that the terms be not acceded to. It would be better for the board to build themselves— buy a lot and put up a handsome building and become their own landlords. They could put up such a building that the rents of parts let off would be a source of Income to the hoard. Several other directors spoke generally agreeing with Mr. McCauley. The prevailing opinion was that the board is very comfortable* in its present quarters, where it can stay for two years, and that it will be better to remain in rooms at §300 or $100 rent till it can see its way to build, rather than to expend cash upon a building not their own, and pay a big rent as well. It was ultimately agreed that the clerk of the board be instructed to notify the chamber of commerce that its terms were not acceptable, and the committee was re-appointed to receive any further proposition the chamber may have to make and report to the directors at their next meeting. THE TRANSGRESSORS. They Were Few In Number at Yester day's Roll Call, and Received Their Desserts. "Every day will be Sunday by and by, will ! it," said hizzoner yesterday, repeating the words of John Gorman, as the grinning mug of this worthy stood up in the bull pen. "A pretty spectacle you'll make when the '■ millenium procession comes along, and you may as well understand that there will be no j goats in the parade either." Gorman hung I his bald head at the remark, and for once in j his life it seemed as though a blush of shame j was struggling to break through the dirt on j his grimy mug. Sunday night while loaded ; down with bug juice he tried to break up relig ious meetingrby attempting to run the pulpit himself. When arraigned yesterday, he said that if given a chance he would leave for Red Wing, and remain there to grow up with the country. It seemed like good riddance, and the officer was instructed to see the nuisance on board the train. Daniel Gemhe and Corneilous Allen re side in a double tenement house, and they are not as friendly as good neighbors should be. The other day they had a" dispute con cerning the right of Allen to chop wood in his side of the house, Gemhe claiming that the operation was contrary to his rest and peace of mind. An encounter ensued, and when they got through Allen's face looked as if It had encountered a stack of wild cats. He had Gemhe arrested, and the court fined him $10, both men being put under bonds to keep the peace. Mike Griffin was up for frescoing the mug of Robt. Moore, they work in elevator "A," and Griffin accused Moore of leaving the gates open, thereby causing the grain to run out. This led to the quarrel and Moore got the worst of it. Griffin was fined $10. R. C. Arnold hitched hit horse to a lamp post, and when ordered to take the animal away he gave the officer back talk. He was run in and a fine of $5 was imposed. John Hinderscheid, a horney-handed granger, was fined $10 for fast driving over the St. Paul bridge, and Thos. Horan paid $5 for the priv ilege of bouncing Tom Coyne out of his sa loon, which he said was cheap enough any way. TRAGEDIES OF THE SANCTUM. Closing Scenes in the Lives of Some New Torlc Editors. The first editor of the New York World, which was started as an orthodox religious paper, was Mr. Spaulding, a grave, taciturn man of large frame and powerful intellect. When tha World fell into financial straits, and threw religion overboard, about 1863, Mr. Spaulding took a place upon the edito rial staff of the Times, under Henry J. Ray mond, whose first assstant I then was; and there he showed himself to be the boldest master of political invective ever known on the American press. To recruit his health, he made a voyage to New Orleans, but on an excursion up the Mississppi his boat met with ill-luck, and he was cast on a deserted bank of land, where he almost starved to death. The first I knew of his return to New York was at a very late hour one night, when being on duty in the editorial quarters of the Times, a "whistle up the pipe" from the publica tion office, and a message that Mr. Spauld ing had muttered my name, hurried me down stairs. I found him prostrate on his back upon the stone flooring, evidently struck by paralysis, and entirely uncon scious. In a few moments he caught my voice, and began stammering out Latin words, disjointed quotations from Virgil, Horace, and his other favorite authors, oc casionally pressing his head with his hands and breaking into a sort of wild laugh. It was after midnight by the city hall clock when I left his side, hastened over to the old New York hospital, then in Broadway, rang up the young doctor in charge, who agreed to take him in, returned to the Times with a stretcher, called down four composi tors, who lifted the prostrate man from the floor, and accompanied them back to the hos pital, where I saw him placed safely upon a cot under a doctor's charge. It was half an hour of the time for going to press when I got hack to the editor's sanctum. If the editorial columns of next day's Times were short or otherwise imperfect the reason is for the first time told. Though Mr. Spauld ing was over fifty years old, he had been married but a few months before, and in the morning I telegraphed to his young wife, then in one of the towns up the Hudson river, who appeared at the hospital in a very few hours. She tended him devotedly dur ing the days in which he could not be re moved from the cot, and then had him taken to her father's country home, where he soon afterwards bowed his head in death. In this tragical way ended the life of the first editor of the New York World, a man of great soul and honest purpose. Even more tragical was the closing scene, in June, 1869, of the life of Henry J. Ray mond himself, the distinguished founder and editor of the New York Times. He had been at the Times office on the afternoon of the night in which he was found dead, and in quired for me; but I happened to be engaged elsewhere in a work which he had put upon me, writing a criticism of Woolsey's "Re form Against Nature," then just published. Leaving word that he desired to see me as soon as possible, he left the office in his usual cheery mood, took dinner at his house on Ninth street, and then went to a political meeting. But little is known of his subse quent movements until after midnight of that day (June 18), when his wife, who was drawn down stairs by hearing a noise, found him lying dead at the door of his house. In the midst of a great career in the press and in polities, his life ended in a tragedy never yet cleared up. In the very early years of my manhood, Mi*. Raymond had given me my first opportunity on the press by inviting me to his paper, and during the ten years that preceded, included, and followed the great war for abolition (or from 1859 to 1869), when I was his daily associate, he proved himself to be the most amiable of men, as he was one of the most accomplished edi tors. But I set out to tell with the fewest words, the tragedies of a score of New York editors of my acquaintance. The tragedy of the death in a mad house of Horace Greeley, the founder and editor of the New York Tribune—who has not been shocked by the story of it? The tragedy of the death of the venerable poet, William Cullen Bryant, editor of the Evening Post, who fell before my eyes under a sunstroke in the Central park five years ago, was told in this paper on Dec. 30. How suddenly and unexpectedly, in the summer of last year, death struck my asso ciate, William O. Bartlett, of the Sun, a man of great mind and great heart. The tragedy of the death last September of the jovial Hugh J. Hastings, the editor of the Commercial Advertiser, of this city, was caused through a shock he got when his car riage came in collision with an express-wag on. How suddenly and grievously in December last fell William T. Clarke, editor of the New York Star, the good and talented man, who had so often thought it his duty to assail me .or the di eds that I did under the highest sense of duty. The managing editor of the New York Her ald during nearly the whole of the life of the elder Bennett was Mr. Hudson, who came to a tragical end in the Massachusetts town of Concord, a few years ago, through being crushed by a railway train. Time fails mc to tell of the lesser lights— Chase of The Herald, Ned Seymour and Mills of The Times, Adams, of the Sun, and how many others. What a line of tragedies of the sanctum is enrolled before my eyes!— tragedies which have shocked my spirit every year since first I stood, as a stripling, within the innermost circles of the daily press of New York. The tragedy of poor Doc Wood is the latest on the roU.

As some doubt has been expressed whether the Jamestown & Northern railroad would be immediately extended to Devil's Lake, Chas. B. Lamborn, land commissioner of the Union Pacific, writes to a party at Jamestown that the roa_ will be completed to the new town of Minnewaukon on the west end of the lake as soon as the material can be obtained and the track laid. A preacher at Flandrau has exited a good deal of local interest by a series of sermons to show that the approach of the millenium is indicated by the political, physical and moral signs of the times all over "the world. Among his signs is the red glow of the sky after sunset that has so puzzled scientists. The true Dakotian believes that his land is to be the abode of the favored during the mille nial period. This statement of the literary and social phase of life at Sioux Falls will compare fav orably with any city of its size anywhere.

The Dawson Globe wants it understood by those abroad who have apprehensions of tough winter weather in Dakota, that in January there was not a day that the sun did not shine, the thermometer averaging at least from ten to fifteen above. Nor is this, it says, an unusual feature of the great and wide known "Dakota blizzard weather." This is substantially correct, although strict accuracy would force the admission that there were a few days in January when the sun was only visible to the eye of faith. The plaintiff in the late libel suit has grati fied the community by leaving the wearisome case when the courts had settled it, furnish ing a marked contrast to the course of other parties. It is said that he is in receipt of letters and telegrams of congratulation from friends all over the country. As a sample of these, Stanley Huntley, the editor of Drake's Traveler's Magazine, in New York, formerly of Bismarck, and the author of the popular Spoopendyke papers, writes as fol lows: "Accept my congratulations with the rest. You have fought out the old Chicago scandal at last, and won the victory. I should thick it was time it was buried. You have done so well by northern Dakota that you deserve every success and all the encour agement the territory can afford." W. F. Steele, the Kidder county boomer, has just returned from Washington, and re ports that the Dakota county delegation there is still full—in numbers, not in the popular sense—and is making quite an im pression, in fact several impressions on the minds of the rulers. There is not entire unanimity even among those from the north or south, and the latter are more exasperated than ever at Gov. Ordway, who has been keeping open rooms and the most fluent re freshments in his cultivation of legislators and rulers. Mr. Steele returns to look after the county seat matter in Kidder, which is involved in the erection of county buildinga, in which a vote was set for the 11th, but since adjourned. A motion for an injunc tion to restrain the inssuance of bonds is to be argued before Judge Hudson at Fargo on the 16th. It has been stated that a good quality of coal has been found on the west side of the Turtle mountains, in Bottineau county. It is believed that there is an inexhaustible bed of it, and that it will prove to be immensely valuable. It is found along the broken bor ders of streams as well as in the mountains. The county is not organized and none of the land is in market, but a syndicate from the east has located mining claims and i3 ship ping machinery there to open mines. Al though it is a hundred miles or more from the terminus of a railroad it is said that it will pay to work the mines quite ex tensively to supply the settlers who will come seventy-five or one hundred miles for it, as there is very little wood to be had. A gentleman who is quite a geologist, and has explored the region very carefully, expresses the opinion that abundance of iron ore will be found In the mountains. H the mineral resources there are as extensive as as sup posed, it will not be long before a railroad is pushed there, and the prospect is that there will be a very heavy migration there the present season. The Jamestown Alert, the local exponent of the chairman of the Republican committee of Dakota, shows annoyance at any reflec tion upon the Logan movement toward the ■White house. It concedes that the senator joined the Methodist church by telegraph to secure his re-election to the senate, but the aftermath by Oglesby, that he sent his photo graph to be baptized, wobbles the serenity of the Alert, and is pronounced a dire thrust at his presidential aspirations. It rudely calls it a campaign lie. It la not easy to see why there should he more impropriety in baptizing his photograph than in his telegraphing hi3 sudden conversion to Metho dism, just in time to secure the influence of that powerful element to enable him to down the wicked Oglesby. Perhaps, however, the regenerated senator was really baptized by telegraph. If the Alert insists upon this version there should be a generous conces sion to that extent. Those familiar with the personal life of the senator, question the efficacy of the telegram or baptismal part, as no change been discovered in his phraseolosv, except, perhaps, in the presence of devout Methodists. His notably emphatic expres sions do not employ quotation marks or dashes in the body of the words that shock pious ears. A Sunday school address writ ten up by his secretary, now could be made useful by the senator. HUMOROUS. t is now claimed that the Minnesota cli mate is so healthful that when a crowded pa3ssenger train tips over nobody is killed.

On the Fourth of July, 1861, four of the youug fellows of Company E., Third Michi gan Infantry, of whom I was one, were strolling up the Potomac River road, when we met a large cab driving toward the city. Two colored men sat on the driver's seat, in suit of dark blue with large plain bras3 but tons and plug hats. One of the boys re marked: "They think they arc some, don't they? Let's have some fun with them." All agreed, and as they came up we kept the road. So did they. The team came to a halt, and a voice from the cab said, "What's wanteds" and when we looked that way there was a silver-haired man looking out the door. We told him we wanted to take a ride with him to Washington to see Old Abe.

How Log Eloves are Worn in Paris.
