A Minneapolis lady in Oakland.
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:

A $11,000 Conflagaration.
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,
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
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.

A "Poor Devil" Wants to Know.
To the Editor of the Globe.
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."

yesterday by Officer Rearaden. The action
was taken at the request of the boy's father,

The relief association met at the rooms of

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.

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:
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
Third—In failing to perceive the necessity
for a second vessel until late in the sea
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.
