Vice President presided at the weekly
meeting of the board of trade yesterday. The
session was largely attended and proved un
usually lively.
Capt. Whitney, from the committee to
whom had been referred the matter of the
Villard resolution submitted to the board by-
Mr. Griswold, presented the following which
was adopted:
Resolved, That we have heard with deep
regret of the misfortunes which have lately
overtaken the Hon. Henry Villard, resulting
iv his loss of health, as well as pecuniary dif
ficulties, and that we most sincerely sympa
thize with him in his great trials.
Resolved, That, recognizing his wonderful
energy, his self-sacrifice, honesty of purpose,
and purity of character, we rejoice that the
ordeal through which he has passed, has left
his honor and reputation unsullied, while the
work which he has accomplished in uniting
the great northwest to the Atlantic and Pa
cific oceans has more than compensated for
the cost incurred, in the direct benefits which
have already accrued to the country at large,
and of which the Northern Pacific railroad
must soon be the recipient.
Resolved, That we sincerely trust that Mr.
Villard will soon be restored to health, feel
ing assureel that success, with him, will be
but a matter of time.
Capt. O. S. Merriman reported back the
matter of the chamber of commerce memo
rial to congress for an increase in the Uni*ed
States navy, and offered a lengthy set of res
olutions, recommending strengthcuintc the
navy, and the report also reviewed the statis
tics of other nations, comparing the same
with that of the United States.
The report was adopted and 200 copies
ordered printed in pamphlet form.
Capt. Merriman further stated that he con
sidered the questiou of a merchant's marine
one of vital importance to our connty, and
recommended that the committee on com
merce submit a report on the same.
The two questions elicited a spirited and
lenghty discussion, and the suggestions of
Capt. Merriman were adopted.
Mr. Dale, of Dale, Barnes, Morse & Co.,
called the attention of the board to the fact
that the freight facilities between Minneap
olis and Duluth were so imperfect that the
Duluth merchants found it to their advan
tage to make their purchases in Chicago in
stead of Minneapolis. He stated that it usu
ally required about ten day's
time to ship goods from Minneapolis
to Duluth, although the distance is only 150
The question was given a thorough discus
sion, and then referred to the committee on
the jobbing trade and railroads.
The following resolution, submitted by J.
Newtou Hind, was adopted:
Resolved, That it is the sense of this board
that public policy and the best interests of
the park system demand that the manage
ment of this important department of city
affairs be as far removed as possible from
party politics, and to this end we respectfully
urge upon the party conventions that the se
lection of the new board of commissioners
be delegated to committees for mutual con
ference in much the same manner as has ob
tained in the selection of candidates for elec
tion to positions on the board of education.
Resolved, further, That a copy of this res
olution be transmitted by the secretary to the
several party conventions when they shall
The board adjourned after transacting fur
ther unimportant business.
Satn'l of Posen.
Last evening the Grand was packed to
standing room, and the vast audience was
delighted by a clever presentation of the
neatest comedy drama ever seen in this city.
"Sam'l of Posen" has hitherto only been
played in the larger cities of the east, but
Mr. Curtis is now speculating in western
cities. Yet he is not a stranger to Minne
apolis. A number of years ago he visited
us with Milton Nobles, and in his Hebrew
character made a decided hit. But in his new
life picture of the commercial drummer,
" Samuel Plastrick," he has opportunities
which Milton Nobles' plays could not afford.
It is a play with an interesting plot,sparkling
dialogue, witty sayings, and exciting situa
Mr. Curtis was repeatedly called before the
curtain during the evening. His support is
exceptionally good, and of his company
E. L. Davenport, J. L. Morgan,
M'lle Albina de Mar, and
Miss Josie Wilmere were the best. The dif
ficult French role of M'lle Celeste, the adven
turess, was admirably played by M'lle Albina
de Mar, but the Sam/1 of Mr. Curtis was the
centre of attraction. Same bill to-night and
Wednesday night.
The City Pastors.
At the regular meeting of the city pastors
yesterday Dr. Hovey occupied the chair.
The publication of Sunday newspapers was
again brought up for discussion, and several
of the clergymen were loud in their indigna
tion because their polite request had been
disregarded in the matter of publishing
church" notices in the Sunday issue.
Dr. Campbell declared he has always found
God's work progressing just as well when no
church advertisements appeared in the secu
lar daily press. A motion was then offered
that no church notices be inserted in the
napers at all, but Rev. Torrey moved an
amendment that the whole matter be laid on
the table, which was carried. Rev. D. E.
Wells then read his paper on the moral and
religious character of George Washington,
in which he paid a grand tribute to the
"Father of his country."
The topic on next Monday will be "The
personal and social study of the Bible," by
Rev. E. Campbell, and Rev. W. W. Pratt was
appointed to conduct religious services at the
College hospital on Sunday next.
Tousley's "New Departure.
Among the new rules enacted by the au
tocratic ex-consul of Trieste for the govern
ment of the public schools is one that will
not gain him much popularity with the moth
ers of the pupils or with cultured ladies who
therefore visit the schools to witness the
methods employed in teaching "the young
idea." The other day a lady teacher from
Chicago who is spending a few
days with friends in this city visited one of
the schools out of curiosity to witness the
"new mettiods" ©J teactung, on the Euro
pean plan, as introduced hy Prof. Tonsley.
Imagine her surprise when she was informed
in a curt way by the lady principal that visi
tors are not to be admitted to the schools ex
cept once a month, and that she had come
on the wrong day. The lady immediately
left the building, wondering toknow whether
the superintendent had borrowed this very
un republican rule from the public schools in
the kaiser's dominions. The fact is that
many parents whose children attend the
public schools of Minneapolis are rather
forcible In their comments on Tousley's
"new departure." Their children are now
told not to eat onions, though they are per
mitted to have lunches during school hours,
iv fact to have regular picnics, the profe3«mr
having also borrowed that innovation from the
schools of Austria and Germany. The
parents say that this erratic pedagogue will
be likely to dictate what lunches the children
bring to school and that in all probability he
will issue an arbitrary edict that the pupils
must eat pretzels and bologna sausage, these
being favorite articles of diet with
the pupils of the European
schools which he visited while acting as con
Tousley's popularity is on the wane with
with the teachers, pupils and mothers of Min
neapolis for causing such an absurd rule as
the exclusion of visitors to be enforced.
Martin Dahl Sues Sergeant McKiernan for
92,000 damages.
Yesterday Martin Dahl filed in the district
court a complaint against Sergeant McKier
nan, in which he demands $2,000 of the of
ficer feir wounding his feelings and causing
him great mental and bodily injury for im
prisoning him in the city lockup on the night
of Feb. 11.
Mr. Dahl alleges that on the night afore
said as he was wending his
way homeward he was attacked
near the intersection of Fourth street south
and Riverside avenue, by one Potwell. In
the scuffle with his assailant he lost his cap,
and forthwith he rushed to the South side
police station to acquaint the officers of what
had happened. Sergeant McKiernan detailed
two officers to the scene of strife, where they
arrested two men and brought them to the
station, the plaintiff accompanying them.
He further alleges that the de
fendant, with intent to annoy anel
disgrace him compelled him to mount the
"patrol wagon," which was sent rattling
through the public streets to the city lockup,
where the plaintiff was immured in a dark,
dirty and unhealthy cell, there to remain
until 9 o'clock next morning.
The sergeant says that Dahl was intoxi
cated when he applied for aid at the
station, and that he arrest
ed both Dahl and his assailant,
Potwell for being drunk and disorderly. As
for Dahl's being disgraced in consequence of
being driven in the patrol wagon through the
streets at the hour of midnight, the sergeant
thinks his feelings are supersensitive, as
every respectable citizen was in his domicile
asleep at that hour of night, and no one was
on the streets, unless some nocturnal vaga
bonds and the officers and reporters who
were watching them.

The Armory Fair.
The military fair in Armory hall opened
last evening with a fair attendance of the
elite of the city. All the booths were finished
in an elaborately artistic manner, and the
various stands in charge of the ladies were
beautifully decorated and heavily
laden with fancy articles of every conceiva
ble description. The ladies were arrayed
in beautiful costumes, and vied with one an
other in beauty. It was truly a gathering of
fair women auel brave men, and the reporter
could not avoid thinking of the night before
Waterloo so powerfully depicted by the in
comparable poet, Byron. Danz' band was in
attendance eliscoursing ravishing airs to the
great delight of the audience. At
8:45 Major Naylor stepped to the front of the
fine stage at the end of the hall, and said he
had great pleasure in opening the armory
fair by introducing Col. Hicks, who hardly
needed any introduction from him.
Col. Hicks, on coming forward, was re
ceived with hearty applause. The colonel
said when invited by the committee to deliver
an address before this brilliant assemblage
he promised to speak for only ten
or fifteen minutes. The National
guards were the volunteer Amer
ican soldiers. They were the legitimate off
springs of the free American government.
In every struggle that freedom had waged
against tyranny the volunteers had invaria
bly and always been on the side of liberty.
Every man in the state from the age of
eighteen to forty-five was eligible for the
militia service and in time of
trouble or invasion when his services
are needed he is in readiness to
to be on hand. The National Guards are
the first volunteer soldiers of America and
are entitled to the pride, honor and admir
ation of every citizen. All the glory of
America has been won by the volunteer
soldiers. At Concord and Lexington, in the
suppression of the whisky insurrection of
1794, in the war ot 1812, in the Mexican
war and the war of secession the
volunteer soldiers did their duty.
The militiamen of Minnesota are the legit
imate descendants of those who fought the
battles of the late rebellion, the counterpart
of the same men who twenty years ago left
their homes to preserve the Union and free
the slaves. He was happy to say, and felt
exceedingly proud that the duty the National
Guards were called upon to perform
at Stillwater was well done and
that they had proved themselves
no holiday soldiers. It was asked by some,
why were not the regular soldiers stationed
at Fort Snelling called upon in that emer
gency? We are not a people who consign
such duties to a standing army. This is a
government bj the people, of the people and
for the pftiple and it was more in accordance
with Republican feeling that the volunteer
soldiers of Minnesota be assigned to do the
work. It was as much the province
of men of mind and thought to execute the
law as to make the law. The National Guards
are more than mere militia. He compli
mented the ladies of Minneapolis for de
vising with their cunning hands the orna
mental works he saw in the hall. In con
clusion, he said the National Guards of Min
nesota will never surrender except to the
lovely ladies who are contributing so much
to make the fair a success. The colonel was
vehemently applauded.
Sir Henry Elliot, G. C. 8., English minis
ter at Vienna, has returned to that city after
a somewhat protracted absence and resumed
his official duties.

Tlte Hudson Ray Outlet.
There is much difference of opinion as tc
the value and practicability of the proposed
Hudson Bay outlet to market. This from the
Pembina Express probably is the best presen
tation of the feasibility of the thing:
There are records to prove that seven
hundred and fifty voyages have been made
by that route with very few losses, and this
without the protection affocded by a system
of light houses. But the testimony of Prof.
Bell is the most satisfactory. He was twenty
five years on the Geological survey, and
spent six years on the banks of Hudson's
bay. His testimony is clear and positive as
to the practicability" of the route. So is that
of all others who have traveled in
that region, so far as heard from yet.
Mr. Geo. S. McTavish, of Pembina, spent 14
years in the vicinity of Hudson's bay, and
he is emphatic in the belief that a good har
bor may be had, free from ice at least four
months in the year, and as far as Hudson's
straits are concerned Jie believes they are
navigable every month in the year. So far
as we can learn, men of experience and ob
servation in the matter are believers in the
practicability of the route, while the doubters
and cavillers seem to know very little about
it, having probably based their conclusions
on the obsolete descriptions and haphazard
isothermal lines fouud in antequated school
There has also been a good deal of extrav
agant guessing by those opposed to this
scheme as to the obstacles in the way of
building a railway to Hudson's bay. To set
this matter clear the company announce
that they have plans and field notes cover
ing the entire route, made by competent
engineers, and that a careful estimate fixes
the probable cost of building and equipping
the road at $20,000 a mile. It is well known
however, by those familiar with the country
that there are no formidable engineering
difficulties to contend wilh, so that the ex
pense of constructing the road is not to be
thought of seriously, considering the im
men.e advantages that would accrue.
Court Affairs.
Among the matters in the district court to
day were the following: Fred Schwan, con
victed at the last term of stealing wheat, was
discharged from custody, as he turned states
evidence, and on his testimony a confeder
ate named Baker, who was acquitted at the
last term, has been convicted and sent to
the penitentiary. August Schrink and Jas.
Feltman pleaded guity to cutting timber on
government land and were fined $5 and one
hour in jail. Win. E. Finch, the late post
master at Ellendale, Dickey county, charged
with taking a letter from the mail and
destroying it pleaded guilty. Sentence
differed. Little Fischer alias Peter Farewell,
etc., was convicted by jury of smuggling.
Improving Transportation.
Assistant General Manager Odell, Capt.
Wrenshall, engineer of the track, and others
passed west this morning, aud stated that
their object was to inspect the water supply
of the eastern division. It is ample at pres
ent, but they are arranging to put on a fast
passenger and express through train in the
spring. They did not state how much the
schedule would be increased, but that the
time on the Northern Pacific will be much
the shortest of any of the transcontinental
A Good Appointment.
It is understood that D. R. Taylor, late
superintendeut of the Missouri division of
the Northeln Pacific, has been appointed
superinenndent of the Fargo Southern, to
take effect March 1. The selection is regard
ed as an excellent one.
A Blizzard.
The only genuine blizzard of the winter
and oue of the severest of several years, is
blowing to-night, much to the annoyance of
railroad trains which are all delayed by it.
The most violent storm known is reported
from Jamestown.

The German Lutherans and Swedish
Lutherans have formed a church organiza

Belknap, the nearest railroad point to the
Coeur d'Alene mines, is 233 miles from He
lena and 525 miles from Portland.
There are on the assessment rolls in He
lena, 119 town lots, valued at from $14 to
$250, for which no owner can be found.
Jamestown is furnishing instruction to a
cornet band, which is to give its services on
all public occasions and furnish open air con
certs during the summer.
The Oriental Order of Humility held a con
vention in Mitchell the past week, and in
connection with it a street parade, banquet,
dance, and a big time generally.
The Jamestown Alert has just entered up
on its fourth year. It is conducted with
ability and keeps Bquarely to the front of
Dakota journalism. Its prosperity is earned.
Of the thirty-two lodges of Good Templars
in Dakota, it is said that the north has but
one. One of the papers think the people of
the north are so temperate that temperance
lodges are not needed.
It is reported that Prof. Demars, a citizen
of Fargo,has been appointed judge of probate
in Kittson county, Minn., to fill a vacancy.
He is said to be capable and clever, and his
friends are glad to learn of his appointment.
A call is issued signed by sixty-six persons
scattered over north Dakota, for a conven
tion of the citizens of north Dakota who are
in favor of the prohibition of the liquor traf
fic, to be held in the Methodist church in
Fargo, March 4, next, to consult as to the
best means of furthering the object named.
Hon. S. C. Palmer, who is named so pos
itively in connection with the vacant judge
ship, last week filed a homestead and tree
claim at Devils Lake, and intimated that he
intended to occupy them and raise wheat. It
will be inconvenient for him to be on the
circuit in South Dakota and live on a claim
in the north.
J. B. Welcome, the original pioneer news
paperman of Moorhead, is credited with the
conduct of the Moorhead department of the
Broadaxe, which is announced to be in the
last stages of accouchment. The rumers of
its combination with the Republican are
probably due to the fact that most of its staff
is believed to be taken from the Republican.
There is a good deal of apprehension felt
in Stutsman county that the spring floods
will carry away the bridges on the James, as
the grouud is said to be frozen to an unusual
depth, throwing up the piles from four inches
to a foot. It is said that the snow is unusual
ly deep up north, and if it goes off rapidly an
unusual flood will be expected.
Among those recently indicted by the
United States grand jury in connection with
lan-' transactions is A. A. Allen, one of the
prominent citizens of Jamestown, and a law
yer of local note. The securities on his bond
represent over a million dollars, aud almost
the entire community would go on his bail.
It is the local belief that the indictment is
based on mere technicalities that involve no
real criminality.
It is alleged that Professor Crabbe, who is
now writing up Minnesota towns for the
Minneapolis Farmer, spent some days at
Moorhead recently, and strolled over Fargo
incognito, having' shaved off his hirsute ar
rangements so far as his face was concerned.
No one recognized him. He will be remem
bered as the evening Call man, who came so
near being mobbed for his attacks upon the
Irish people. He would not be cordially re
ceived in this city.
To diversify the winter monotony it is re
ported that the names of fifteen or more
voters, at the late special election, are im
properly on the voting list of that ward, and
trouble is supposed to be on the docket for
, the owners of such of them as may be shown
to be Illegal voters. The object alleged is
not to contest the election, but to induce
more care in the exercise of this prerogative
' of the American citizen.
The social circles a Jamestown have been

grand leap year masquerade given at the resi
dence of Banker Lloyd Friday night. There
were 250 or so present. One of the features
of the evening was the auction of the masked
men, who brought from 25 to 85 cents. The
valuation placed upon them by the ladies
could not be regarded as excessive. One bid
off her own husband. There was a good deal
or sport connected with it.
. There are several thousand citizens of
Dakota who will be willing to go to Washing
! ton and relieve Mr. Raymond without a draft.
■ There will be the liveliest sort of a fight over
his succession. There are many of Ray
mond's old friends in the north who are be
coming dissatisfied with hi 3 course. They
say that he gives the cold shoulder to all the
measures in the interest of the north in or
der to curry favor with the south, which has
the votes to control the election.
Some of the north Dakota journals severe
ly criticise Delegate Raymond for his refusal
to introduce the bill for a constitutional con
vention. They insist that courtesy to the
respectable portion of his constituents who
favored the bill requireel that he should pre
sent it, as It would not compromise him,
nor debar him from opposing its passage.
The gentleman is supposed to desire to be
returned and in his attempt to stand on the
fence in regard to controverted issues is
likely to dissatisfy all parties.

Bozeman Chronicle, 14th inst: Cover
d'Alene Mountain miners held a meeting
last week, at which it was voted that the first
Chinaman that ventured into the diggings
should be hung, and not having sufficient
rope on the ground to hang a man, a miner
was immediately sent out on snow shoes to
Trout Creek, where he purchased forty feet
of the article and returned.
Billings, Mon., is agitating the building of
a railroad to the Bull mountains: A corre
spondent says: "On every section of land in
Bull Mountain there are 11,151,360 tons of
coal, in one vein, all of first-class quality, no
partings of dirt or slate, so that when one is
burning it in a stove, there is no cliukintr- It
burns down to clean ash, so that with a little
shake of the grate the fire box is clean."
The Duel County Advocate, anel some
other papers in south Dakota, are trying to
get up a boom for delegate Rayfnond for re
election to congress next fall. The Advocate
concludes an article with this:
We of course are and always have been a
consistent advocate of division and admis
sion, but if we are to remain as a whole yet
a little longer, and Dakota is to continue to
have the one delegate in congress, then we
say, let Hon. John B. Raymond be kept in
for another term as a recognition of his faith
ful services. He has shown his ability to do
equal and fair justice to both divisions, and
we see no good reason for a change at this
status of the situation.
The Larimore Leader says the new railroad
from Mayville north through Larimore and

Mr. C. Holt, the contractor who did the
grading through that section two years ago.
has been the main spoke in the wheel which
has been rolling around among the farmers
along the line securing the right-of-way. He
received instructions from the Chicago, Mil
waukee & St. Paul company several days ago
to hasten and close up his work at once. The
right-of-way has been secured through nearly
every quarter on the line, and Mr. Holt ex
pects to have everything in apple pie order
by the end of this week. Preparations are
now being made to commence work as soon
as the frost is out of the ground.
The most intense excitement known in
Fargo about a small matter has existed the
past day or two over the issuance of an an
onymous little sheet called the Moon, in
distinction from one of the same size known
as the Sun. It was filled entirely with sen
sational paragraphs in regard to notable citi
zens, showing a remarkable inside view of
life in the metropolis. It was a mixture of
wit, pungent hits and scandalous attacks,
some of them of a libelous character and that
will make trouble for the proprietors in case
they are discovered. The papers were cir
culated by boys and when the character of
he thing began to be understood there was a
rush for the little thing and the price went
up. Many were sold at 25 cents, and it is
said that $1.00 was offered for copies. It is
believed that a full history of the perform
ance will soon develop.

Captain John Smith, one of the best posted
men in Montana, writes the Bozeman
Chronicle from Rathdrum: We will have a
good wagon road in from this point to the
Cover d' Alene goldfields in twenty days, on
which a span of horses can haul 2,500 pounds,
and which high waters will not affect. I
know whereof I speak. All news is the most
encouraging from the mines. About 150 a
day are going in from points east of here,
and about fifty from this point. There are
twenty-three pack and saddle trains working
from Rathdrum to Eagle City; and from fifty
to seventy-five sleighs and wagons go from
here loaded every few days to Evolution,
from whence goods are taken in on packs.
Two steamboats will be finished and ready
for business by March 15. These boats will
convey supplies and passengers to within
four miles en* Eagle City. The greatest evolu
tion crossed by our wagon road will not ex
ceed 1,500 feet.
Quite a number of the north Dakota papers
are making the most vehement attacks upon
S. Newton Pettis, an early confederate of
Colonel Plummer in Pennsylvania whom
the colonel is said to be trying to boost into
the gubernatorial chair of Dakota. Some of
these editors claim to have had acquaintance
with Pettis in Pennsylvania, and they say as
vicious things of him as others do of Gov
ernor Ordway. In their sweeping denun
ciations they do not quite miss Plummer.
In an article of more than a column in the
Bathgate Sentinel of the past week, this pas
sage is found: Pettis is a bad individual,
but that Plummer of the Fargo Republican
is worse. Plummer recently said (we have
this on good authority) that if Pettis could be
governor of Dakota and he its secretary that
what they could not steal would not be worth
taking. There is no doubt this does injus
tice to Colonel Plummer. Honesty is his
hobby, and it is understood that his sterling
integrity has kept his pockets light. "Poor
but honest," is said to be the epitaph he has
selected for his tombstone. But there is the
smallest possible danger for the appointment
of Pettis as governor.

Dr. Locus alias George J. Williams, of
Chicago, at one time proprietor of the .St.
Paul Galenic institute, has lately published
a book entitled '•Hidden Secrets." The
Daily Wisconsin says: "A young fellow
named Fred Connolly was arrested in Mil
waukee last Friday fur distributing these
pamphlets. Connolly, who claims to be
respectably connected, says that he was out
of employment and was engaged by Lucas to
come to Milwaukee and flood the city with
his scandalous production, not being " aware
that by so doing he was violating the law."
Daily Milwaukee Wisconsin, Feb. 1G: "We
believe that to-day there arc more saloons
licensed for the sale of liquors in Milwaukee
than at any previous time in the history of
the city. Since the Democratic council
virtually rescinded Mayor Stowell's order for
the midnight closing of saloons, and took
from the mayor the power of licensing, there
has been a large increase of these fester
shops of vice and pauperism."
George W. Peck, of Peck's Sun, purchased
the Cary residence in Milwaukee a few days

cost $40,000. The ground, which has a west
frontage of ninety feet and runs eastward
to the lake, is valued at $15,000." Pre
