HUEAPOLIS MS. OFFICE—Xo. 6 Washington Avenue, epposlte Hicollet house. Offlco hours frow 6 a. m. to 10 o'clock p. m. The coming city campaign promises to be the most interesting political event in the history of Minneapolis. The Republicans effected an organization several weeks ago, after a fight which came near destroying the organisation. And, although tlie "chosen few" have worked assiduously, and flatter themselves that they have put up all fences, and "fixed" things generally, there is an ele ment in tho party which Is liable to break the yoke, and precipitate a rupture. It looks much like "diamond cut diamond." Tbe Democracy, on the other band, although slow to organize, are resolute. They now hold the reins to tho city government, and with projier and judicious generalship dur ing the pending campaign, oan and will suc ceed. Without the contaminating influences of money, tho city Is Democratic, and conse quently if tho party works in harmony and keeps pace with the cashiers of the Republi cans, make strong and popular nominations, sees that every vote is registered, and then sees tl at every voter deposits his vote, there can be little or no question as to the result. The Republicans of Minneapolis will hold their city convention on March 6th, They have organized as best they could, and havo unanimously decided upon the "high,moral" war cry as tbe motto of the campaign.

Question able as its morality may be, the former goes Into the business as a business venture, while the latter goes in to get the former's money without giving an equivalent for it. This afternoon the city council will meet in adjourned session. The special work of the meeting will be the consideration of that voluminous building ordinance, which isover six columns in length, printed in fine type. Those who have read the ordinance as pub lished complain of its length, on the ground that It is so cumbersome that its practical use is destroyed. It is probable the council will be in session all the afternoon, and the even ing as well. The fire alarm telegraph linemen on yes terday tested every box used by the depart ment, turning in an alarm from each separ itely, first having notified the men stationed it the various engine and hose houses so that he alarms would not call any one out.

Hoag, to recover her home stead in Hassan township, which she convey ed to him upon his assurance to remain with her during her old age to attend to her wants, and to cultivate the farm. Instead of so doing he executed a deed of the property to one Gertrude E. Drake.

The Philadelphia Times says: M. B. Curtis played "Sam'l of Posen" before an audienee whieh filled the Chestnut Street Opera house from parquet to gallery last night, and the frequent bunts of laughter and applause proved how thoroughly the peculiarities of the enterprising young drum mer wero appreciated. Sam'l is well known to Philadelphia play goers, and his quaint humor and attention to "pishness" have made him quite a favorite. MINNEAPOLIS PEIWONALS. Gen. Rosser is home from the east.

NEWPORT. Thanks for the Globe calendar. It is getting quite a difficult feat to keep top of the snow in this vicinity. Nearly everybody about sick from severe colds. Newport school adjourned on Wednesday noon, to attend the closing exercises of school in the Scofleld district. The series of evening meetings which have been held in the M. E. church for six weeks past, closed on Thursday evening. As a result of the continued effort about thirty have taken the stand on the Lord's side. Eight more joined the church on probation last Sabbath. On Wednesday morning two double sleigh and two cutter loads of the members and friends of the Laides' Aid society started to attend the so ciety held at Mr. John Laramy's about four miles distant. After going about a mile, one of the cutters became discouraged and turned back, the rest proceeded on their way and after struggling and plunging through snow drifts for two hours or more, finally arrived at their destination, pret ty chilly, and with appetites keen enough to do ample justice to the bountiful dinner spread for them. As usual they had a splendid time, and the return trip more expeditiously made. Chopitu The compositions of Chopin opened for the piano a new era. They run the risk, however, of remaining unintelligible from a lack of knowledge of the master's manner of execution, of his intentions, of his mode of viewing the instrument. Upon paper his compositions are different from what they are in their adequate tone of life. As an ex pression of the instrument they are to be placed above the compositions of Weber. They go a step further—they maintain a first step in piano literature. They rank with the ideas of a Novalis, or a Heine. They cannot be arranged, nor be introduced by other in struments. They are the soul of "the piano. They embody the instrument rather than the speculative idea. They are often great within narrow limits. They are elegiac—lyrical rather than cosmic. But from the standing point of the creator's nationality they are ideal—iu the history of the spirit of music they are im mortal. If we glance over the collected works of Chopin we involuntarily exclaim; "So much in so little! Scarcely sixty-four authentic opus numbers, and yet so much within the domain of the intellect." What might not be said about the finished tech nique of Chopin? Aud in this respect he stands high above Weber, and what not about his musical principle, his harmony, his modulation, his management of the pi ano in general, of the left hand in particular. His tone coloring is Rahyaelistic. He is in truth the Raphael of the piano. Not in the church however, arc his Madonnas to be sought, but in life.—The Continent. A Duke as an Amateur Fireman. [London Letter in San Francisco Chronicle.] The Duke of Sutherland, is best known as an enthusiastic amateur fireman, and he is never so happy as when assisting at a con flagration. Many a time and oft have I seen him some ten or fifteen years ago clad in fireman's uniform, working as hard as the paid members of the brigade, while his bosom friend, the Prince of Wales, clad in fHE St. PAUL DAILY GLOBE, "BATURDA? M0ROTNG, FEBRUARY 16, 1884. like attire, looked on approvingly. Thla duke leads a reputable life, Is enormously and fairly charitable, and as he rarely takes hi* j seat fn the House of Lords and has yet to j make his maiden speech, we may concludes I that he considers it is no part of his duty to earn any portion of the liberal allowance of loaves and fishes he enjoy. THE MORMONS. The Startling Statistical Record Which These People Produce. Earl S. Goodrich, Esq., of this city, who is engaged in mining enterprises in Utah, has written an able and exhaustive letter upon I the Mormon question. After reviewing the cime at length his letter presents the fol lowing forcible statistics: The criminal statistics of Utah are kept with unusual precision and care. Not only the nativity of criminals is registered, but the character of religious belief or non-belief, as the case may be. This system furnishes a sound basis for the prosecution of the inqui ry in hand. These statistics for the years prior to 1882 have been published, and the us .■ of the facts adduced from the criminal records of 1881 by the Hon. J. W. Barclay, M. P., In an article which lately appeared in the Nineteenth Century, has excited much comment here and abroad. This gentleman stated that, with Mormons constituting the bulk of the population of Salt Lake City (in 1881 there were about 18,500 Mormons to 5,500 non-Mormons), the convicts con fined in the city prison were 29, and In the county prison 6, but of these only 9 were Mormons. In the territorial peni tentiary there were 51 convicts, but only 5 of them were Mormons, and of these 2 were there for polygamy. Out of 125 prisoners in the lock-up, 11 only were Mormons, and some of these for polygamy. The returns of arrests in Salt Lake City in the same year showed 169 Mormons against 851 non Mor mons. That is, with over three-quarters of the population of Salt Lake City, the Mor mons furnished only one-sixth of the num ber of arrests in 1881. These records, which correspond substantially with those of for mer years, certainly exhibit the Mormons in a favorable light compared with those who denounce them as licentious, brutal and de graded. The statistics at hand for 1882, which, it is believed, have not hitherto been published, cover a wider field, taking in all the populous districts of the territory. The total number of all arrests for crimes and misdemeanors in those localities during 1882 was 2,198, of wiiichthe seventy-eight per cent, of the Mor mon population furnished 800, and the twenty-two per cent, of the non-Mormon 1,898. A tabular exhibit of the grosser crimes embodied in the above total shows: o a 2 2 • S :.K ! » ** Assault and buttery. 40 Jo6 Ahsuult with intent to kill 0 2 Assault with deadly weapons 0 7 Assault with intent to commit rape.. 1 5 Assault with threats 0 18 Murder 1 15 .Manslaughter 0 1 Attempt to murder 0 4 Accused of murder 0 G Threatening to murder 0 1 Mayhem 0 2 Duelling 0 1 Prostitution 0 95 KeepingQbrothels 0 27 Lewd conduct 0 S Insulting women 0 3 Exposing person 0 9 Nuance 0 6 1 bgcene aid profane language 4 24 Porg«sry and counterfeiting 0 8 Drilnkcnness 68 307 Drunk und disorderly 29 181 Druuk and profane 12 130 Selling liquor without license 0 18 Gambyng and keeping gambling houses 0 52 Mail and highway robbery 1 6 Grand larceny 3 48 Burglary 1 8 Disturbing peace 34 111 Bigamy 0 1 Destroying property 15 26 Arson 0 2 Obtaining property under false pre tense 0 25 Opium smoking etc 0 16 Stealing railroad rides 0 19 Vagrancy 0 147 Violating prison rules 0 6 Total 208 1,578 So that the Mormons, comprising 78 per cent, of the population of the territory, con tributed one-eighth of the arrests made dur ing 1882, and the non-Mormons, having only twenty-two per cent., contributed seven eighths. In those pursuits having a demoralizing tendency, the distribution was as follows: ' 2 V, o B o 3 o ? GAMBLING HOUSES, ETC. B 3 g J"? No. of saloons and breweries 116 146 No. billiard tables and bowling al leys 1 46 No. gambling houses 0 10 Total 17l 202 The number of brothels throughout the territory was twelve, all kept by non-Mor mons; number inmates not given. The criminal record for Salt Lake City for 1882, shows that, in a population of about 25,000, divided between Mormons and non- Mormons as nineteen to six, the total num ber of arrests was 1,561, of which 188 were Mormons and 1,378 non-Mormons. Classed by sex the number of Mormon men and boys was 177, non-Mormon 1,271; Mormon women, 11; non-Mormon, 102. Of the six ty-six houses where beer and liquor were re tailed by the glass, sixty were kept by non- Mormons, and the remaining six, nominally Mormons, were not entitled to participate in the sacament of the church by reason of their calling. The fifteen billiard rooms and the bowling alleys, and the seven gamb ling bouses, were all kept by non-Mormons. The six brothels had non-Mormon proprie tors, and they were filled by thirty-one non- Mormon inmates. If it should be suspected that these terri torial and city exhibits show an unfair dis crimination in favor of the Mormon popula tion through the sympathy of Mormon police officers and magistrates, such suspicion will be removed by the summary of the re cords of the territorial penitentiary for the same year. It will be recollected that for the conviction of this class of crim inals, THE WHOLE MACniXERT OP THE LAW, judicial and ministerial, is in the hands of the federal government. The number of penitentiary convicts for the year was 28. Of these but 1 was orthodox Mormon, and she a woman, confined for contempt of court; 5 others were Mormons only by reason of) their parentage, and the remaining 22 were: 8 Catholics, 4 Methodists, 1 Jew, 1 Adventist, 1 Presbyterian, and 7 of no religious faith. The tabular statement of the arrests throughout the territory for 1882 furnishes food for varied reflection. One application only will be made. If those practicing po lygamy are, as a class, actuated by the licen tious motives with which they are charged, why is it that the affiliated crimes of prosti tution, brothel-keeping, lewd conduct, insult ing women, exposing person, attempting rape, obsene and profane language, occa sioned in all 179 arrests, are so nearly ino nomollzed by the non-Mormon element, that the proportion should be 35 to 1? Crime breeds its congeners; and does not this table of crime furnish proof of the general honesty of those who enter the polygamons state 1 Madame De Witt, the daughter of Guizot, has just published the first volume of her edition in modern languages of extracts from the old French chronicles. The work begins with Gregory of Tours, and will end with Phillippe de Commines. This first vol ume embraces the origins of French history and carries the reader to the end of the First Crusade. It is full of matter descriptive of manners and character. It is said that Miss Hogarth, the surviving executrix of Charles Dickens, has taken measures to prevent the publication in Eng land of Dickens' letters to his solicitor. Miss Hogarth says that Mr. Dickens never in tended these letters should be published. They were preserved by the solicitor as cur iosities and were bottnd in an album with other Dickens memorials. They were sold by the solicitor's executors with the rest of his library, they having no knowledge of their contents. DAK0TA&1HTAE News Gleanings and Points Specially Collected and Forwarded by Tele graph to the Daily Globe. [Fargo Special Telegrams, Feb. 15, to the St. Paul Globe.] Grave Robbing Ghouls. More definite facts are learned to-night in regard to the grave robbing that came to light yesterday, and caused the most intense excitement there. The parties arrested were James Allen, S. A. Morris, Sam uel Fletcher and James Orr on a warrant sworn out by Maj. Brown. They were taken before Justice Miller, on the charge of grave robbery and examined. Bail was fixed at $2,000 each, which AUen and Fletcher succeeded in giving. The others will probably remain in jail till the session of court. The evidence disclosed that the ghoulish work had been carried on for some time and the bodies of several re cently deceased citizens have been exhumed to be sent to Ann Arbor and other medical colleges, one of which is in Wisconsin. The way the gang managed was this: Allen, who is a retired prize fighter, engaged rooms over ihe opera house where the "stiffs" were brought and shipped. Morris, one of the accused, is sex ton of the cemetery and therefore knows the location and contents of graves. The mat ter was given away by one of the parties, in a drunken debauch, expos sing a "stiff" to Attorney Andrews, who recognized it as the body of a well-known citizen deceased a few months since. The remains of several paupers bur ied at the expense of the county are among those sent away. Tho9e recently bereaved of friends are much excited, and searching parties are investigating the cemetery and opening graves. The indignation against Allen is more intense than against the others, from the fact that he is the Instigator of the operations and has pocketed the larger part of the nefarious gains. He has also been charged with pilfering, several times, and was under $200 bonds. The Capital and the Grand Jury. There are further developments in the matter of the capital commission and the grand jury, whieh iltustrate the pickwickian character of the denials of Gen. Campbell that the subject is occupying the attention of the jury and especially of the general. If robust rumors are not utterly delusive the distinguished gentleman is industriously in pursuit of attested data that can be made to subserve some of the schemes, and what he don't want to know of a prejudicial charac ter to the capital commission is not visible in the light of the present information. Damages Excessive. A motion for a new trial In the case of Richard Morse vs. the Northern Pacific Rail road company was argued in the court to day. At the last term a judgment of $20,. 000 was given Morse for injury received as an employe, wbich the company regarded as excessive Decision reserved. Justice Stack Acquitted. In the district court to-day, another of the indictments against Justice J. S. Stack was struck, and the justice acquitted. The third one will probably be quashed. Dakota A Montana News. Parties are arranging to open extensive stock ranches in the coteaux, northeast of Jamestown. T. C. Power & Bro., of Helena, recently bought the 700 head of cattle belonging to the Rosenthel estate for $25,026. Quite a colony of comers from Illinois are securing land in Douglas eounty, which is one of the best sections of the south. The polo club at Bismarck proposes to challenge the Fargo club to a test of skill. This is a very popular game on roller skates. If Valley City does not secure the Tower City N. N.. it has assurance of the early establish ment of an extensive brewery, which will af ford refreshing cheer. Parties from Michigan have decided to build an elevator and roller flouring mill at Steele. This is the center of a very fine agri cultural region and there is no mill nearer than Bismarck. It is reported that a colony of 300 persons from Nebraska, will settle at New Salem, a few miles west of Mandau on the N. P. The energetic efforts muking to fill up the Mis souri region they are likely to be productive of large results. An amateur club at Bismarck, is rehearsing Pinafore and expect to give the first public rendition on the 26th and 27th. There are a number of superior performers, who will take part in the opera and there is no doubt it will prove an entire success. Cel. Morton and family are visiting in Chicago and points south, and since his ab sence his name has been sprung for mayor of the city. It is hoped he mil return before the election and consent to this use of his name. Although somewhat peculiar he com bines conservatism and radicalism in about the right proportions for a safe and judicious executive. The Helena Independent states that at least twenty per cent, of the skim milk year lings last year shipped into Montana from Iowa, Dlinois, Wisconsin, and other eastern states, will be lost this winter. This kind of stock know nothing' abont "rustling" and the weather conditions have to be altogether favorable to encourage the youngsters to search for grass. The fire patrol, on the occasion of their grand masquerade ball, St. Valentine's day, gave a sort of Mard Gras street parade through Fargo and Moorhead. Among the laughable features of the affair was a huge rack or box with the heads visible above the sides representing the jury in the libel case, With a diminutive wag at the rear collecting verdicts, one cent. The Right Rev. W. D. Walker, the new bishop of North Dakota of the Episcopal church, is announced to be present at the church in Fargo, on the 27. Measures are being taken to give him a formal and elabo rate reception upon his first appearance in north Dakota. He will soon after his arrival enter upon his Episcopal duties, and visit all the parishes in the diocese. It is told that a man named Jones took a claim some ten miles southeast of Bismarck and in digging a cellar for a house he struck a bed of lignite coal and when in want of fuel he digs it out of the bottom of his cellar. It is said that in that section this kind of coal is often struck by well diggers and that the ground is honey-combed with it. It is reported to be quite satisfactory as fuel when one becomes accustomed to it. Lewis T. Hamilton returned from Penn sylvania the past week, bringing with him a lovely better fraction, who expresses great satisfaction with the bright, cheering and bracing atmosphere of Dakota. Although Mr. Hamilton passed through the stage of existence when every prophet pleases, one in particular, he says he was disgusted with the damp gloomy weather east, with its rains and floods, and is happy to get back to Dakota. The attempt to keep open the branch of the Northern Pacific, from Lisbon to La Moure has not so far panned out enough to repay La Moure for the spread given the men of the train that did push through, as It clos ed up again at once and has remained closed ever since. The business men have sent a formal statement to General Manager Oakes of the annoyance and injury they sustain in consequence, and petition him to do some thing for their relief. They believe it can be kept open without great effort. There are a great many people in Dakota who will agree with ths Lisbon Progress in this : Col. Donan's name is mentioned in con nection with the Dakota governorship. Col. Donan is a Dakotlan of the blue blood, has brains, is honest, and we do not know of a single objection that could be urged against him. The Progress la not givon to making candidates, but since Col. Donan's name has been mentioned, we will take the occa sion to say that the Colonel has the qualifica tions and the best wishes of the Progress. The Valley City Times, in speaking of the reported endorsement of Senator Logan by Gen. Grant, in the following takes the view suggested recently in these columns. "And now that Gen. Logan seems to he thus strongly endorsed by Gen. Grant, the rumor that Logan has sent to Chairman Wells an intimation as to the time of the meeting of the territorial convention for the election of delegates to Chicago seems to have some foundation. If not in his own interest then to help some scheme in which he is inter ested. The main line of the Northern Pacific has suffered comparatively little annoyance from snow this winter in the section through Da kota. The delays of trains have been gen erally upon other sections of the line. No other railroad In Dakota is so fortunate in this respect. The snow falls are much heavier both to the north and south. Some of the branches of the Northern Pacific have been nearly impassible much of the time, and this is more or less true of all the lines in south Dakota. This is quite an advantage to those doing business along the line of this great artery of commerce. Chairman Wells, of the Republican terri torial commute, is stiil struggling to call a convention to name the two delegates and altinates to Chicago. He has discovered that the national committee have fixed the time of holding such conventions at not less than thirty nor more than sixty days before the meeting of the convention, which is be tween the 3d of April and the 3d of May. Some of the members of the committee have asked him to call two conventions, one for the south and one for the north, each to select one delegate and one alternate, but this does not tally with his schemes, and various fanciful objections are raised to it. The project to start a Dakota boom for Logan j is interfered with by the sixty days liinita- I tion. It is said that in a dry time all the usual i signs of rain fail to materialize in an aqueous ; way. No such failure can be an ticipated in j the indications that point to an unprecedent , ed filling up of the inviting openings in Da j kota the present season, If the population is I 350,000, as now claimed, before the year ex pires it will loom up within nearly reach of the round figures of half a million. Before it can under any probable conditions come into the union as a state its numbers will surpass those of any four or five territories on their entrance upon statehood. Of the half million population its approximate di vision will be for south Dakota 325,000, and 175,000 forthe north. Those figures are ro bust enough for two good states. The valu ation of property will more than keep pace with the population. A few figures will show this. In 1880 the valuation was $20,750,782; for'81, $31,301,818,; for '82, $44,701,479; for '83, $69,155,909. It will be seen that the annnal increase has been about 50 per cent. This will bring the figures for '84 above $100,000,000r As some have supposed that this region was not specially adapted to stack the figures of the assessors on that point are worth noticing. In 1882 the valuation of horses was $3,248, 691 and for 1883 it had increased to $4,882, 242. The value of mules in 1882 was $35, 112 and for 1883 $21,214, of cattle in 1882 the returned valuation was $2,666,462, and for 1883, $3,867,072; sheep in 1882 $152, 773, in 1883 $191,788 and swine in 1882, $126,233, and in 1883 $212,233. In the north these interests will be developed far more rapidly in the future than they have been, as vast regions in the west and ex treme north are discovering that there re sources are specially fitted for this industry.

Ottawa, Feb. 15. —At the annual meeting of the Dominion Artillery association, Lord Lansdowne, in his speech, said: "You are not, aud I hope never will be, a military na tion in the sense in which some p'uropean powers are. Your people have their peaceful pursuits, and are engaged in the development of the resources of the couutry. Your only coterminous neighbor is a great natiou, with which you are upon the most friendly terms, and whose relations with you are abso lutely unclouded. They are united to you by the ties of descent, language and a common love of free institutions. Again, you form part of au empire, which I you may depend upon will never quarrel with you gratuitously or for selfish purpose.
