The grain and produce market here was leSB active, with prices unchanged and generally firm. Chicago and Milwaukee markets were unsettled and fluctuating, and closed slightly higher, the latter &©&c above Monday's close. Chicago Wheat advanced to the same extent, but pork declined and closed aboat 40@50c lower. Money at St. Paul was in active demand at 8(g.l0 per rjent. At Wall street money was unchanged. Government bonds were firm and state securities dull; railroads were firm and strong. Stocks opened strong and continued, with but slight breaks, firm throughout the day. Union Pacifies Were in brisk demand. Delaware, Lackawana and Western advanced 2 per cent., and Pullmans Were 6H per cent, better than Monday. The Whole list in sympathy advanced J4@l^ per Cent.* Vf tn' a z stoct was moderately active. To-day is Odd Fellows day in St. Paul and Minnesota. The appointment of C. S. Palmer to the Dakota judgeship made vacant by the death of Judge Kidder, will be well received in Dakota, where the new judge is well and favorably known. The Chicago News is moved to remark; "By the way, the worst blow that has fallen upon Logan is Dorsey's indorsement of his boom." Except for getting a little slap at Dorsey it would not be admitted that there is any Logan boom. A Sexate junketing committee with the sanctimonious Hoar at the head, left Wash ington yesterday for a month's absence, the most of which will be passed at New Orleans. How much more this expedition will cost than the average congressional funeral re mains a matter for future report. The Denver Tribune, for a Republican partisan organ, is a fresh one. Here is its statement regarding the colored vote of these United States: "The general experi ence has been that the colored vote will gen erally go where it can get the most money. It is purely a v matter of money. The colored vote in the country at large is unreliable and purchasable." The colored people can see in what esteem the Republicans hold them. If this statement is true, the Danville out rage job is a case where the colored men were hired to get up a row. That is the way the Republicans handle them. "Bismarck was drunk," is the explana tion which is now offered of his offensive re turn of the Lasker resolutions of condolence. Perhaps he was, but that does not alter the fact that there was not the smallest reason why this country should have formulated such resolutions, or having formulated them should thrust them upon the German chan cellor. It is known by intelligent people that Bismarck found in Lasker a bitter ♦pponent; good taste should have sug gested that a resolution of condolence sent to Lasker's avowed enemy was a thing that might better than not be avoided. As a matter of fact, the men drew up and con ceived the resolutions, probably knew noth ing of the feeling between Bismarck and Lasker. They saw only that Lasker was greatly admired by many Germans in this country, and thereupon they drafted the reso lutions to placate the German citizen. They aeveronce looked across the ocean; they saw only the German voter and to him the resolution was addressed. The same class of men, had they thought of it, would very likely have drawn a series of resolutions over the untimely death of O'Donnell the slayer of Carey, and would have asked that they be forwarded to Gladstone to be read before the British parliament. AUSTRALASIAN FEDERATION. The foreign mails bring the detailed results of the action of the intercolonial convention, held at Sydney, Australia, on the Sth of last December. The purpose of the convention was to secure an understanding and co-oper ation among the provinces of Australasia, which includes a vast empire all byit'elf, and which, in time, will be sure to make itself sensibly felt throughout the world. Australasia comprises not only Australia proper, but a large portion of the southwest-. ern portion of that enormous region known formerly as Oceanica. In width from east to west, the Australasia which has just entered on a species of federation, is some 10.000 mile6, and from north to s v g U tb nearly 4,000 miles, au area -much greater than that of the United States. It is time that w.thir. this vast area there is m-jch water, so that ic fact the land which can be settled falls far short of that within this country From fifty to seventy millions ts the popula tion, which, it is calculated, this Australian continent will support. At the intercolonial gathering there were representatives from the various portions of Australia, with the result that a federation was formed which covers considerable ground. It provides that war rants issued in one colony shall be good in any other: that measures may be provided Gfor tbe common defence: that sanitary regulations patents mail facilities, and the like shall be extended so as to meet the demand of all the colonies in stead of being of heretofure, cared for by each colonies without reference to the neces sities or the convenience of the others. This union has been adopted but in all particulars with a special reservation that her majesty's prerogatives shall in no case be interfered with. The colonies are loyal, although they have a desire to attempt a little on their own ac count. In this particular there is somewhat an imitation of the Canadas; the Australians still will wear the queen's collar of servitude, but other wise claim to be free and independent. It is a great pity that in taking this step the colo nies had not at once boldly announced that their ultimate intention is to form an empire in the Pacific which should owe allegiance to no one. The results of colonial enterprise is seen in the case of our Canadian neigh bors. They have an enormous territory, they are as old as any part of the United States, with the result that to-day they have less than a twelfth of our popnlation of this country, and cut no figure in the world's affairs. The average geo graphers of the \ world would scarcely be able on demand to locate Canada on the map, and later history will be consulted in vain to find any part she has taken in shap ing the outlines of the world. This position is so obviously the result of dependence that it is somewhat marvellous that the Austrail ians should not have taken the alarm at the result as_ shown in Canada, and have provid ed for itself a different future. However, the step taken towards securing a union is a notable event. It creates what is the sem blance of a nation over an area which is continental in its extent. It will afford development throughout hundreds of islands which have been given up to pure savagery since tbe beginning of the human race. It will demand the reconstruction of modern map3 whereby the place of athousand unknown islands in an unknown sea will assume shape as fractions of a grand whole. The vast Pacific ocean wiil lose its character as an unbroken sea and a continent will spring up In its midst like a grand oasis in the midst of the desert. TWO MORE PRESIDENTS IN IT. Now and then, an audacious Republican, big with the party secrets, gets a good oppor tunity to give the game dead away, and does it, as Gov. Foster did in his famous talk about Arthur. Now comes J. B. McCullagh, editor of the St. Louis Globe-Democrat, and strikes a blow below the belt. He talked as follows: "So you think the contest narrows down virtually to Arthur and Edmunds?" "Yes. Edmunds is not, so far as I know, a confessed candidate, but his friends are urging his claims, and it amounts to the same thing. There is one thing which is, but should not be, against him, and that is the silly prejudice which exists in the west against an eastern man, or 'Yankee.' It is a senseless objection, andit is difficult to un derstand why it exists?" "Isn't it because 'eastern' men are sus pected generally of being the representatives of capitalists?" "No, I think there's nothing in that. In fact, I don't believe that this prejudice amounts to much with the mass of the peo ple, but the politicians here in the west harp upon it, and use it as a weapon with which to attack men who come from east of a cer tain line. I have very little patience with such talk, and rather than see a good man sacrificed for such a silly and unreasonable consideration I would be willing to see a Democrat win." "What will be the issue in the coming campaign? Will the tariff question figure prominently?" "Not at all. It will hardly form a feature of the campaign. There is not enough dif ference between the official utterances of the two parties on that question to admit of a contest." "What will be the issue then? Will the old ones be made to do duty once more?" "Yes; the bloody shirt and that sort of thing." "Don't you think that's about worn out?" "Not by any means. ** There are at least two more Presidents in the bloody shirt." There is a first-class pointer. Everything is to be kept out of sight but the bloody shirt. The senate and Arthur are to crush tariff legis lation, another crew have set the "outrage" mill at work, and the leading Republtcan paper of the Bouth-west discloses that there are two more Presidents in the bloody shirt. There is the whole matter in a nut-shell. Its bloody-shirt or no issue, and that means a Republican campaign of malice, lies and corruption without a paralell. There will be hot work, but the conspiracy will fail, the Globe-Democrat the contrary, notwithstand ing. The Republican party will never elect another President. Its bloody shirt is its doom. THE ADMINISTRATION STRENGTH. The output of the official notice that Arthur is a candidate for the Republican nomination is showing results. A Washington special to an eastern Republican administration paper reports the first returns: The administration is no longer commanding a majority in the senate whenever Senators Sherman and Logan object, which they are doing very freely, especially concerning southern appoint ments coming up for confirmation. It has never been so before. Each of these senators has a distinct motive in defeating Arthur's use of power, all three being equally interested in the question of delegates involved therein. This is the explanation of the recent rejections. Others will follow. Persons familiar with the inside history of the failing appointments know how hard Arthur has been struck. In this Hoar joins with spirit. The ad ministration strength in the senate does not ex ceed twelve. The fight has begun and it 1 will wax warm and strong, and the country will witness a use of patronage and spoils unheard of in American politics, stupendous as it may have been. A servant in New Haven, Conn., believed in more than the scriptural tooth in retaliation, for she stole the false teeth of her mistress on Sun pay, hindering her attendance at church, and causing an inspection of the pawn shops on Mon day. The German emigrants who came to this conn try last year was 166,199, while the number for 1882 was 193,687, and for 1881, 210,544. These figures show a steady decrease of German emi gration, much larger than the public had either expectation or knowledge of. Prince Bismarck was not drunk, nor angry, nor contemptuous when he caused the return of the Lasker tribute. He was simply incredulous. When he learned that the resolution was offered in the house by Tom Ochiltree, of Texas, he re jected the whole business as a Munchausen-ism too thin, or dubious for the serious acceptance of a "man of iron" whose country is always ob tuse in apprehension of American humor and perversely stupid as to the merits of our present "statesmanship." Besides the chancellor heard that the Hon. Thomas Porterhouse Ochiltree had been denied admission to the Metropolitan club at Washington, after having been "proposed by one of his friends, and serenaded by another." He treated the Ochiltree-Lasker resolution ac cordingly. The Stock Exchange Failure. Sew York, Feb. 19.—It is announced that no statement of McGinnis Bros. & Fear ing's affairs will be made for some days, as their customers are closing up their contracts. It is understood that more than one-half the firm's liabilit.es are due to three creditors, who have expressed themselves as willing to grant the firm any extension of time decided. It has baen proposed thst a trustee be ap pointed to take charge of the firm's assets in order to save expenses usually attending as signments Much sympathy U expressed for the firm, and there is a disposition to be lenient with them. . THE ST. PAUL DAILY GLOBE, WEDNESDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY 20, 1884. THE RAILROADS. A Statement of the Earnings of Roads During 1883 Shows a De crease. i Average Decrease of 5.6 Per Cent. Per Mile of the* Four Roads Northwest of St. Paul. Canadians Protest Against the Amalgama tion of the Canadian Pacific and the Grand Trunk. A Useful Publication. Mr. P. B. Groat, general emigration agent of the Northern Pacific road, has just issued a publication in the form of a newspaper, which he entitles "Newspaper Notes on the Northern Pacific road." The contents of this paper consists of facts gathered from re liable sources, in regard to the productions of the counties through which the road runs, the population, mineral wealth, &c, and of statistics calculated to give the reader a full, com plete and fair idea of the vast region along the line of this great highway across the con tinent. Copious extracts are made from the correspondence of Gen. H. V. Boynton's let ters to the Cincinnati Commercial Gazette, giving a summary of his trip over the road, also from the remarks of the Rev. Henry- Ward Beecher, giving his ideas of what he saw on his trip across the continent by way of the Northern Pacific road. Of course, much of the publication is made up of facts and figures calculated to present to the public an ade quate idea of the capacity of a considerable portion or the 6oil along the line to produce wheat. In regard to the snow fall and the delay of trains the following statement is made, which will surprise many: There is much less snow fall in North Da kota than in the southern portion of the ter ritory and in the same latitude farther east. While there were frequent and protracted in terruption to travel on the railroad lines in southern Dakota, southern Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois, and Wisconsin, it is a fact worthy of mention that the trains of the Northern Pacific railroad made regular trips over the entire line every day throughout the three past wint ers, and without any considerable delays during each of the winters of 1880-81-82-83 and thus far in 1884. While this is true of north Dakota, it may be further stated that in the valleys of Montana the snow fall is light, and while there is more snow in east ern Washington and Oregon there is scarcely any in the portion of that state and territory west of the Cascade mountains. A Southern Pool Meeting. Washington, D. C, February 19. —The Southern Railway and Steamship associa tion began a special meeting to-day. Re porters were excluded, but gentlemen pres ent furnished the following abstract: The proceedings and object of the meeting were to adjust matters of disagreementjbetween the Georgia Central and the Eastern Tennessee, Virginia and Georgia railways, and decide whether the associated pool shall continue. Seventy gentlemen were present, repre senting all the prominent southern railroad and steamship companies. The con vention was called to order by Senator Brown. The committee, to which were referred the points of .difference between the Central road and the Eastern Tennessee and the Eastern & Georgia Railroad company, made its report in the'shape of a set of resolu tion, the purport of which was, that the com pany belonging to tbe association was en titled to the exclusive control of its local traffic brought to competitive points. The resolutions were adopted, whereupon Fink, representing the Eastern Tennessee & Georgia company, regarding the action as a decision against his company, gave notice that it would retire from the association. Haskell, president of the Charlotte, Columbia & Augusta Railroadjcom pany, inquired what the effect the resolutions would be, and regarded them as equivalent to a dissolution of the association. Senator Brown replied, the withdrawal of a member would not necessarily break up an associa tion. After a pause, a member moved that the existing movement be continued to June 1, and endeavor to bring about an arrange ment of the difficulties, and in the event of a failure to agree, a full association to meet, and if possible, provide for a further continuance till January 1. Fink said he would reconsider his action if the association favorably regarded this motion. The motion was adopted, with theeffectof causing Raoul, of the Central Georgia company, to give no tice that his system of roads would refuse to be bound by the agreement after March 1. The disruption of the association seemed im minent. Raoul reproached the association for its course, as shown by the adoption of the commissioner's report in favor of his lines and its subsequent action of the adoption of a motion opposite. Increase and. Decrease of Business. [Special Telegram to the Globe.J Chicago, Feb. 19.—From a systematic re view of the earnings of American railroads for 1883, the following interesting facts are deduced: The four roads northwest of St. Paul average 5.6 per cent, decrease in earn ings to the mile; the ten roads west and northwest of Chicago average 0.9 per cent, derease; the eleven roads 60dth and south west of St. Louis averaged 1.1 per cent, in crease; and ten roads north of the Ohio river and east of the Mississippi river aver aged 1.7 per cent, decrease; the nineteen roads south of the Ohio and Potomac and east of the Mississippi river, 2.5 per cent, decrease and the ten eastern roads averaged 10.1 percent, decrease. The total average earn ings to the mile decreased 1.2 per cent. In January the decrease was 4 per cent.; in February 2.2 per cent.; in April 2.5 per cent.; in May 1.4 per cent.; in June 3 per eent.; in July 0.15 per cent.; in August2.8 percent.; in November and December 5.4 per cent.; while they increased 7.2 per cent, in March, 0.15 per cent, in September, andj.5 per cent, in October. Three Daily Trains to the Pacific. Fargo, Feb. 19.—The western bound train on the Northern Pacific this morning had on board John Muir, C. S. Fee, J. M. Hanna ford. and A. D. Charlton, high officials, with private secretaries, wives -and various other parties, mostly going through to the coast. General Passenger Agent Fee stated that af ter April «lst, three trains per day would be run between St. Paul and Fargo,* the first leaving St. Paul in the morning would prob ably run to Livingston, to accomodate the National park travel; the Pacific express would leave St. Paul at noon, and reach Far go in about eight hours. After the Ains worth bridge over the Snake river is completed this train will make the trip to Pprtland in four days. It was stated that arrangements are in progress for a fast train from Chicago to St. Paul, connecting closely with the Northern Pacific, so that the trip from Chica go to the coast will be made in five days— one day quicker than any other route. The officials anticipate a heavy traffic and grea t rush to the mines in the spring. A Canadian Protest. [Special Telegram to the Globe.J Toronto, Ont., Feb. 19.—An indignation meeting was held here to-day, which was composed of leading business men of Cana da, to protest against the amalgamation of the Canadian Pacific and Grand Trunk rail ways, which two corporations now eontrolthe whole railway interests of Ontario. There had been a rumor of the amalgamation of these two roads to favor a high monopoly in the country, and the meeting, in strong terms, opposed anything approaching such a measure, and will advise the government to oppose it in the interest of the country. The whole country is in a ferment over the mat ter, as the anticipated amalgamation would place the railways in a position to charge ex orbitant rates, while the country would have no redress. The Water Don't Touch Them. At the waters in the Ohio river and lu immediate tributaries are very high and are destroying a good deal of property, a consid erable interest is manifested in the public mind to ascertain whether or not there is any danger in going south. Mr. Teasdale, of the St. Paul & Omaha line, the "Royal Route," which has a southern connection, yesterday telegraphed to Mr. A. H. Hanson, general passenger agent of the Illi nois Central road to know the exact situation on the Ohio and the latter replied as follows: Chicago, Feb. 19.—To F. M. Teasdale: Our general superintendent telegraphs me there is not the slightest danger at that point on account of high water. Our tracks are three feet higher than they were last year, and the water is not within three feet of last year's flood, when we had no trouble. Send all you can and we will take them through. A. H. Hanson, G. P. A. 111. Central. A Railway Fraud. New York, Feb. 19. —Inquiry was made here to-day anenta "confidential circular is sued by the Railroad Shareholders associa tion, and signed John Livingston, president, New York." Railroadmen say the circular which Livingston spread broadcast over the land will receive no attention. A Central Pacific railroad official said, his company took no stock in any of Livingston's schemes or railroad shareholders associations. It is presumably composed of Livingston, who plays the part of president, board of di rectors, secretary and treasurer. The Cen tral Pacific is not identified with certain rail roads or other line,s in raising funds to de feat the legislation. The city directory gives the office of Livingston as Temple Court. At that building, a reporter was informed that Livingston has never occupied any of its offices, and had never engaged one. A New Linv to St. Paul. [Special Telegram to the Globe.] Milwaukee, Feb. 19.—A private dispatch from President Colby, of the Wisconsin Central, verified the report telegraphed from Boston that he has raised $2,500,000 to build an extention of the Wisconsin Central from Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin, to St. Panl. At the office of the company here the information is given out to-day that the labor of survey ing the line is progressing finely, and that the work of construction will be commenced at once. Won't Issue Bonds. [Special Telegram to the Globe.] Grand Forks, D. T., Feb. 19.—A special election was held to-day in Polk county. Minn., to decide the question of bonding the town3 for $200,000 to aid in building the Grand Forks, Crookston & Lake Superior railroad. The returns as far as heard from give a majority of 330 against the bonding. Several towns are yet to be heard from, which may reduce the above majority. Purchases Authorized. [Special Telegram to the Globe. | Chicago, Feb. 19.—Judge Drummond au thorized W. J. Craig, receiver of the Toledo, Cincinnati & St. Louis Railroad to purchase one thousand tons of steel rails and the spikes, bolts etc., necssary to. be used in re pairing that portion of the road from Toledo, O., to Kokomo, Ind., the expenditure for such purpose being limited to $42,000. Changes in Office. St. Louis, Feb. 19. —It will be officially an nounced to-morrow that Col. A. A.Talmadge, general transportation manager of the Mis souri Pacific railroad, has been appointed fourth vice-president of that system, with jurisdiction extending over the entire Wa bash line.

Mr. Oakes, vice president of the Northern Pacific left last night for Helena. A special party of forty persons left last night on the Northern Pacific for Walla Walla. The Minneapolis & St. Louis was four hours late yosterday. All other trains were on time. A blizzard swept over the northern part of Dakota on Monday night, and was very se vere. It extended northward into the British possessions, and south to Omaha. It was a terror while it lasted but it did not stop the trains though. Messrs. Muir, Fee, Hannaford, and the other Northern Pacific railroad officials who left St. Paul, Monday night for a trip over the road to the Pacific, are getting along all right at last accounts. Yesterday morning they had passed Fargo, and had escaped the blizzard that is reported to have occurred all through the northern part of Dakota. A short, session of the lumber rate associa tion was held atthe Grand Pacific in Chicago yesterday, but owing to a number of absen tees the meeting was adjourned until tbi s morning. The contracts will soon be awarded for placing the block system of signals upon the Lake Shore and Rock Island roads, between Chicago and Englewood. The arbitrators in the Wichita case met again in Chicago yesterday, but the steno grapher not having the papers in good shape they adjourned till this morning. MAID, WIFE AND WIDOW, The Short and Sad Experience of a Young- Illinois Woman. [Special Telegram to the Globe.J ' Chicago, Feb. 19.—A sad sequel to a mar ' rikgc Jias recently occurred here, where the bride saw her husband die almost ere his his lips had ceased to tingle with the thrills caused by the first wifely kiss and ere the orange blossoms had faded in the wreath with which he crowned her. The joyous wedding bells tolling a dirge and ringing a requiem to her dead love and coffined hopes. At 7 o'clock Saturday morning last, Geo. A. Payne married Miss Belle Jarvis, one of the loveliest young .ladies of Monmouth, 111., and the couple took the 7:30 a. m. train for a wedding trip to Chicago and other eastern points. They arrived at 0:30 of the same evening, and took apartments at the Matteson house, in tending to remain over until Monday. Mr Payne had been subject to rheumatism for some time, but had anticipated nothing seri ous to result from it. He had recently be come conscious that the trouble was affecting his lungs and heart, but had not spoken of it to his lady love thinking it would pass away. On Sunday morning he felt the trouble return and had spasmodic attacks through the day, each one of increased severity. In the evening, in his room with his wife at his side, the disease assumed an alarming phase and Dr, Stubbs who boards at the hotel was hastily summon ed. He expressed the opinion that the pa tients life would be short, though he antici pated that the climai would not come for some time. At 7:30 in the evening. Mr. Payne expired and the bride of sixty hours was left s widow. Her grief was heartrending and she is still greatly prostrated. Mr. D. 0. Templeton and his wife, of Monmouth, whose house the new widowed bride had for years made her home, came up yesterday afternoon and took Mrs. Payne and the remains home to Monmouth. Mr. Payne was a general traveling solicitor for the Kittoning Fire Insurance company, of Kittoning, Pa., and was most favorably known in central Illinois. He was a son of B. F. Payne, of Monmouth, and a nephew of E. A. Payne, who died In New York city' one year ago. Deceased was 31 and his bride 91 years old. THE OLD WORLD.
