The following is an extract from a private letter, dated February 6, and written by a Minneapolis lady, who is spending the win ter in Oakland, Cal.: "The weather is un pleasantly cool, to-day. Strange as it may seem to Minneapolis people, I can go out and pick the most marvelous bouquet of sweet violets in my garden, and then be obliged to hasten into the house and warm my chilled fingers. Far in the direction of of the bay we saw moun tains capped with snow this morning. It has rained—poured—for near ly a week, excepting during the usual few hours in the middle of the day, when the sun has shone gloriously bright. The rain has subsided, but still it is cloudy. To-day I passed under some apple trees in full blos som. I paused to contemplate, to realize the season of the year, aud plucking a bunch of blossoms, I have pressed them. How I wish we could enjoy such a climate in Minnesota. I believe Oakland must be the garden spot of the world. Every cot tage has its garden of beautiful, fragrant flowers—rare exotics, we would call them at home—embracing all the choicest varieties. Without having seen them you could scarcely realize how luxuriant they grow, and they are kept in such exquisite neatness, proverbial of this city. In Oak land I have not seen one dirty nor squalied home, however small it maybe; I have not seen one barefooted nor poverty-stricken child, I have heard it remarked by a Chi cago lady who said: "Barefooted children are never seen here." Milling Revieir. Tha Northwestern Millergives the following review of the week: Millers concur in saying that the water power of last week was the poorest of the season, at one time getting down so low that there were not over two or three feet of water in the West side canal. The operations of the mills as a result were very unsatis factory, and the floor production was the lighest on the crop, notwithstanding that at least one thousand barrels per day were turned out by steam power. Tha total output of the week was 54,794 barrels — 8,133 bbls. per day—against 59,583 bbls. the preceding week. If water power had been depended on solely, the daily produc tion would not have been over 7,000 bbl.s, or a small one-third of the working capacity of the city. This week the water has started off larger in volume, but as a less number of mills are in operation, and loosened ice is causing considerable trouble at the lower end of the platform, the amount of work does not promise to be largely in excess of last week, unless it be caused by steam power in the Pillsbury mills. There is some improve ment reported in the flour trade, quite an active inquiry having sprung up, but it is at old prices. Millers in consequence take heart and hope that the present is the begin ning of a reaction, which will place the mill ing business on a fairly profitable basis. The wheat in store in Minneapolis eleva tors (including the transfer) on Wednesday, showed an increase of over 100,000 bushels over the preceding week, five out of six public wheat elevators showing additions to their stock, but only in the ease of one was the increase material. The stock of wheat at St. Paul is unchanged. The following tables exhibit the local stock, as well as that at St. Paul and Duluth: Minneapolis— Bus.

Yesterday morning the cooper shops of William Stevens, situated at 405 and 407 Main street southeast, were destroyed by fire. The proprietor of the works estimates the damage at §11,000, but the chief engineer thinks it will not exceed§5,000. The engine and machinery destroyed were worth §2,500, and barrels worth §1,200, besides four car loads of staves and three car loads of head ings fell a prey to the devouring element. This stock was insured in the sum of §4,500 in companies represented by Ames & Co. The building at 405 was entirely destroyed, while the walls of the other building were saved through the almost superhuman efforts of the firemen. The building was owned by Mr. Field, of California, and was valued at §4,000, the insurance being §1,500 in the Merchants' Insurance company, represented by I. C. Seeley, The other building was owned by eastern parties represented by Merrill & Co., of St. Paul. Whether it was insured or not could not be ascertained. The loss upon it is about §2,000. The Hitrom-1 Again. William Cunlifl, the young sprig of nobili ty described in these columns a few days ago, was arraigned again yesterday in the police court, and paid §27.50 into the municipal treasury for indulging in another escapade. This time it was at Priest's oderiferous she bang, on First street south, that the young baronet was demonstrating his claims "to no bility, by flourishing a revolver and threaten ing to perforate the worthless body of a nymph du pave. He was arrested, and spent Tuesday night in limbo, reflecting on his wild career in this democratic city, THE ST. PAUL DAILY GLOBE, THURSDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY 14,1884. and resolving to turn over a new leaf after paying his fine. Being interrogated as to what his business was, he snappishly vo ciferated, "business! business! I have no business; I am a gentlemen who will become a baronet when of age." The lines of Pope sprang instinctively to the memory of the impecunious reporter, who could not refrain from repeating in the the ears of Ihe aristocrat, "What can ennoble sots, or slaves, or cow ards? Not all the blood of all the Howards." Mine. Gerster To-Night. The sale of single seats at $5 each contin ued good throughout the day yesterday for the opening opera in the season of Col. Mapleson's Her Majesty's Opera company, at the Grand this evening. "La Sonnambula" has only been sung in this city once, and then by the Emrna Abbott Opera company, with that popular diva in the leading role, with the limited cast and powers of that com pany, our people have had but a faint oppor tunity to judge of the real merits of the opera, and in the hands of Mme. Gerster, supported by a premier company numbering 165 people, it will be a veritable revolution. Upon the suc cess of this season of grand opera depends much the future of our state in seasons of this character. If it proves the grand suc cess which indications now tend to predict, it is perfectly safe to presume that another season we will be treated to operatic and mu sical feasts quite as grand, and seasons which may include Patti or Neilson, as well as Gerster. Of Col. Mapleson's company the Chicago Inter-Ocean says: Signor Cheruoini gave a strong and effec tive representation of Marcello. He is a finished dramatic artist, as well as a good singer, the audience giving a hearty indorse ment to his merit in the latter capacity by the outburst of applause succeeding his duet with Valentina in the second act. Signor Galassi as the sturdy St. Bris, gave a finished characterization that had admirable qualifi cations in both music and action. Mile. Josephine Torkc, who assumed the role of Urbana, was a disappointment. Perhaps too much was expected of this contralto, at any rate the audience gained very little artistic satisfaction from her singing, and her aria in the first act failed to elicitany enthusiasm. The brilliant florid music of Margherita Va lois found most artistic interpretation in Mme. Etelka Gerster. The royal role was acted with a style and grace that qualify Mme. Gerster as a most finished, natural, agreeable artist. She received generous ap plause, as well as numerous and beautiful floral tributes. Municipal Court .furors. Judge Bailey, Mayor Ames, and City Clerk Matthews reported the following list of jurors to sit at the present term of the municipal court: Whipple Andrews V S Treys E G Barnsby H L Jones Eldred Baker F G Lindquist Ernest Bachner Wm Lenebau F W Bollard J O F Meagher Fred D Brown W D McNeico E I) Brown Jas G Xiud Alfred Bookdahl John E Ofstie Jas A Brush J H Paul Geo Boyd, O Plummer, J II Bornholdt, L Paulle, E D Boweu, T Kay, P Briggs, gam Rothschilds, C M Cushman, I£ Hees, I) W Cassiday, G W Smith, B M Christian, A Sanborn, C H Dagirett, W J Sheehan, F Demueles, F Skoll, C B Eustis, Jacob Stone, J T Elwell, W H Sargent, J \V Fitzgerald, Cbas P Stevens, J W Field, Frank G Stork, Ed L Farris, M C Foli, G A Gray, E G Towle, Frank Glessner, V Truesdell, J W Grove, Win II Thomas, J S Beaton, M D Wilson, R R Henderson, Chas E Wales, Geo E Higgins, S S Whittier, X B Hussey, Henry Wenecke, Henry Hauschild, Joshua Williams, C II Ireland, James T Wyman.

Minneapolis, Feb. 13.—You publish this morning a very glowing account of the new mines in the northwest. Will you please in form a poor devil, anxious to improve his pe cuniary condition, if the information is relia ble? If so will you not give a little more day light and say who and what your informant is interested in-^trading, speculation or rail road? You see the point I am driving at. I know of three or four other persons who de sire reliable information, obtaining which they are, with myself, ready to stake their last dollar in the mines. To spend §100 or §200 in going to the mines on only vague rumor would not be wise. Give us all the information you can, and its source. Respectfully, "Poor Devil." STILLWATER GLOBULES. G. M. Seymour, Esq., leaves for the east to-day. A. M. Radcliff, of Minneapolis, made the city a business call yesterday. Quinsy is said to prevail to an unusual ex tent among the horses in this city and vicinity. The state examiner was yesterday engaged in looking over the books of the auditor and treasurer. Dr. William Jenner, of this city, left on Tuesday evening for New York, enroute for Bremen, Vienna and other European cities. The doctor, it is understood, intends to be absent four or five months. Prof. J. F. Downey, of the state universi ty, delivers the third lecture in the course at the Universalist church next Monday even ing, Feb. 18. Prof. Downey comes well recommended, and will no doubt keep up the high character already attained in the course. A lad by the name of McNiell, who had left his home in Turtle Lake, Wis., without consent of his parents, was taken in charge yesterday by Officer Rearaden. The action was taken at the request of the boy's father, who had written to Chief Shortall stating that young McNiell had made his way to the city, and asking that he be taken up by the police and sent back to his parents. The relief association met at the rooms of the Y. M. C. A. yesterday afternoon. Re ports were given by the various committees, and ways and means were considered. The iron moulders made a proposition to give the proceeds of their annual ball to the society, and also gave the ladies the oprortunity to furnish supper. The proposition was accept ed, and a committee of ladies was appointed to solicit provisions for the supper. It was also decided to give an early supper for the patronage of the citizens. The ball and sup per are to be next Wednesday evening. The meeting was largely attended. High Priced Rum. To the Editor of the Globe: An item in yesterday's issue of the Globe, calls attention to the fact that an attempt will possibly be made this spring to increase the license for retailing liquor and beer. With a very few exceptions this clamor is raised by persons who have no pecuniar}' in terest in the matter one way or the other, but who hope to gain a little cheap popular ity thereby. The exceptions referred to are the proprietors of certain high-toned estab lishments who are aware that the closing up of two-thirds of the saloons would result to their advantage. Most certainly the advocates of temperance are occupying advanced mor al ground when they form a coalition with the vendors of high priced rum. Fair Play. Business Difficulty. Kansas Citt, Feb. 13.—Gleaner & Ross, cracker and candy factory, was closed to-day by the sheriff, on an attachment suit for §28, 000. The money was loaned by Nathan Hill.

New Orleans, Feb. 13.—The Mexicans have appropriated §200,000 to represent Mex ico at the World's exhibition at New Orleans. GARLINGTON EXONERATED The Protens Court of Inquiry Con cludes Its Labors and Makes Its Report. It Finds that Garlington Made an Error of Judgment but does not Hold ftim Accountable. Hazen'spntentions the Best but He Failed to Compreheud the Necessi ties of the Case. The report of the Proteus court inquiry was transmitted to the senate to-day. The court finds that Garlington made an error of judg ment in not waiting longer at Pandora har bor, but the error was committed in the difficult and unusual discretion for which he should not be held accountable. It is also due to Garlington to say, that in the general conduct of the expedition, prior to the loss of the ship, he displayed zeal, energy and ef ficiency, in successfully conducting his com mand through a long, perilous and laborious retreat in boats, to a place of safety. "While awarding eredit to Gen. Hazen for the best intentions concerning the rescue of the Greely party, the court is of opinion iu many particulars, and in some of the gravest moment he failed iu the adequate comprehension of the necessities of the case, and the measures and the rations essential to meet them. The court specifies numerous and grave errors in his action, among them tho following: THE EP.ROP.S MADE. First—In informing Garlington that Gree ley's supplies would be exhausted in the fall of 1883, when, in fact, he was provisioned for more than three years from the summer of 1881. The effect of this was to urge Gar lington to undue haste to reach Lady Frank lin bay. Second—His persistent rejection of the suggestion to make on the northward voyage a relief ship a depot of supplies at Littleton island. Third—In failing to perceive the necessity for a second vessel until late in the sea son. Fourth-VThe lax, negligent and defective method of keeping the records of public busi ness, and conducting the correspondence at the signal office, as illustrated in the action of the chief signal officer in regard to the so called supplementary instruc tions or order to Gar lington, which, the court says, was in fact no order at all, though published to the country as such, and made the basis bf the charge that he had been guilty of disobedience of orders. The court is of opinion that neither was this memorandum an order, nor did it properly carry any force, even as a sugges tion to Garliugton. The court comments se verely on this mischievous manner of con ducting official business, and says, while grave errors and omissions mentioned, either directly led, or largely contributed to the failure of the expedition, yet, as they were due to the lack of sound judgment, and un attended by any wilful neglect, no further proceedings before the general court martial is called for. Gone to France. New York, Feb. 13.—The Queen ofTahite has sailed for France to-day, on the steamer St. Laurent. Verdi has been elected honorary member of the Circolo Artistico, Genoa. AMUSEMENTS.
