AFTER THE SCALP LOCKS. The Scalper's Case Before Judge Burr Yesterday-Was the Pool Cora pact Violated? The case of 8. A. Boda. charged with crim inal libel on complaint of Chas. Thompson, of the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Railroad company, came on for hearing in the police court yesterday, after the routine business had been disposed of, and the court room was fairly filled with railroad men interested in the upshot of the case. Boda was arrested Tuesday afternoon, his arrest growing out of af fidavit* sworn to by him and a confederate to the effect that one Hassen had purchased a ticket to Syracuse, New York, from Mr. Thompson for $21, or fifty cents lower than the agreement of the passenger pool rate, the penalty for violating which being $500. County Attorney Egah appeared for the state, Mr" I. V. D. Heard for Mr. Thompson, and Mr. Thos. D. O'Brien for the defendant Boda.' Mr. Whittiker, of the Minneapolis & St. Louis Railroad company, was sworn, and testified to having atithorized David Grau inan, a ticket broker, to pay $5 for the trouble of procuring an,affidavit to the effect that Hassen had brought a ticket for $0] and that Boda had been present when he bought it. Witness could not say who paid for the ticket; witness had paid £5 as the agent of his company, for the trouble of procuring the affidavit: had not known Boda in the matter at ail: Mr. Grau nian had come to his office and said a man had remarked that he could buy a ticket from Thompson to Syracuse, N. Y. for |31. The witness then testified to the agree ment between the eastern rail road companies concerning the east bound passenger business; the low , c.st rate for a ticket to Syracuse was §21.50; the penalty for selling a ticket at a lower rate than this is S500; the ticket bought by Has sen was attached to the affidavit and sent to Mr. Merrill. .Mr. J. W. Granger,the attorney, testified to having drawn up the affidavit; it had been signed by two men, Boda and Hassen, but Mr- Thompson's name was not put in; it was to the effect that the ticket had been bought for $21. David Grauman, ticket-broker, testified to havintr procured the affidavit. Mr. Thompson was sworn. He had been present when the ticket was purchased for Syracuse; the rate sheet was $23; of this 81.56 was allowed for commissions; the man paid him, witness, §21.50; Mr. Frisbie, the broker Grauman, and the purchaser of the ticket were all present. The price of the ticket was $21.50; the •■fleet of selling a ticket lower than this would be that the company represented by witness would have to pay a penalty of §500, and witness would lose his position. After the testimony of Mr, W. H. Dixon, of the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Rail road company, the further hearing wa3 con tinued until 2 o'clock this afternoon. AMUSEMENTS. Attractions at the Grant!. It is to be regretted that the engagement of Frank Ma}-o, which closed at the Grand last night, was not accorded the liberal patronage bo honestly deserved by this sterling actor. The drama, "Davy Crockett," is exceptional in its way and there is nothing pernicious or tawdry in the plain, sturdy lesson con veyed. Besides, Mr. Mayo endues his roll with an honest, wholesome charm that does not dim with repetition, and the impersona tion has a hearty, natural ring about it like that of pure gold. The matinee performance was attended by quite a good audience, but the crowd last nitrht was conspicuous by its absence, al though both perform auces were very much enjoyed. SEA OF ICE. Cpmmeneing this evening the boards of the Grand Opera house will be occupied by Mis 1 Henrietta Yaders in a grand spectacular production of D:Ennery's romantic melo drama, '-The Sea of Ice." This will prove a decided dramatic treat. The plot is interest ing, the story refined and the aciton strong. The company is an exceptionally strong one. Miss Henrietta Vaders is well known in St. Paul as an actress of culture and finish. The scenery is very elaborate, being from the brash of Wm. Voegtlin and George Dayton. No expense will be spared on the part of the management to made this engagement a de cided artistic success. The Olympic. This cosy and pleasant amusement resort is hlled nightly with enthusiastic audiences, who seem to fully appreciate the efforts of the management and performers to give a first class and enjoyable entertainment. The programme is varied and admirably cal culated to. display the talents of the versatile company. Among tke several performances worthy of special note is that of Miss May Waldren, the young and very accomplished vocalist, who is in St. Paul for this week only, and whose artistic rendition of several" selections is worth the price of admission alone. A CURIOUS^ CASE. Twenty-two Years Cohabitation and Six Children, Without Wed lock—A Sudden Quar rel Brings a Case to Court. A peculiar case was developed in the po lice court yesterday, growing out of the arrest of Chas. Klappenbach on the charge of abusive language. The warrant was issued on the complaint of a woman who bears the relation of wife to the defendant, and mother to his children, and yet who has never been his legal partner in wedlock. The woman who swore out the complaint goes by the name of Klappenbach and yet they were never married. She stated that they had lived together for twen ty-two years, during which time six children had been born to them. A couple of months ago they quarreled and separated, making an equal division of the property. Last Monday the woman went to collect rent for one of her houses, when she happened to meet her quondam liege and a war of words took place, in the course of which he called her some very hard names. On the strength of this she swore out the warrant for his arrest. The case will come up to-day. Real Estate and Building 1. Seven transfers of real estate were filed for record with the register of deeds yesterday, the aggregate considerations amounting to $3,500. Following are the transfers: REAL ESTATE TKAXSFERS. B. W.

Taylor has, after a long and patient search, replaced the valuable congres sional annals which were burned at the old canitol fire. After considerable correspond ence he found that these works were in the possession of a Washington gentleman, who named the very low figure of $75 for the col lection, forwhich Col. Taylorsecured an order from the state authorities for the purchase, and received and shelved yesterday. They comprise the complete annals from the first congress in 1789 up to 1837, and are in seventy-three volumes. After 1837 the congressional proceedings were published in the Congressional Globe And at the last congress a bill was introduced by Congressman Washburn that the full vol umes of the Globe be sent to state law libra ties asking for the same, by the secretary of state, which passed the house but failed to reach the senate. The bill will be brought up again during the present session of con gress, when our law library expects to be come possessed of the full annals of con gress since its original proroguement. HASH HOUSE ROW. Sensational Method of Collecting Board Bills—Tumultuous Evacua tion by the Hungry, Sad- Eyed Squad, Who Depart ing- Left No Trunks Behind. There was a little bit of high tragedy en acted at a fashionable West Third street boarding house the other day, which lays Clara Morris and the leading heavy of the Seventh street show in the shade and knocks the ear muffs off from all the bum traveling dude actors who have appeared in St. Paul this winter. It was a cold morning for a mutiny, but the air was as hot in the vicinity of the row as the breath of a July cyclone. It seems that during the week the landlord got hard up and to ease the exchequer he borrowed ten dollars from one of the skimpy pant and lah-de-dah boarders. When Saturday night came the good host proceeded to collect for the sustenance fur nished during the week and when he came to settle with the purse-proud young man in question a dispute took place, mine host re fusing to allow the loan to count on the board bill. The boarder forthwith got up on his ear and struck, when the landlord followed him to his room. Here the trouble began; the guest swore he would leave, and Boniface said not until he had settled the bill. This brought on a row, in the course of which the lord of the manor was reinforced by his son who loomed up with a dirk. The latter was followed by the cook and a chambermaid, who were armed~wlth a carving knife and a broomstick. There was a deploy, an attack and a quick retreat, the minions of the man sion being repulsed by the chum of the boarder, who flashed a revolver. Then the boarders held an Indignation meet ing and nine of them resolved to quit. The next they hired a burly expressman, to re move their effects, but in the meantime the landlord had gotten onto the racket and he vowed that no one could leave without giving a week's notice. The expressman had orders to bring the col lateral out, if he had to do It over the old man's body and nothing daunted he pro ceded to execute the mission. He was met at the portcullus by the irate landlord who was about to show fight when the unfeeling teamster made a break for him. Picking himself up he vamoosed and the trunks were carted off amid the exultations of the victors. NOT STANDARD TIME. They Tried to Play it Fine on the Judge but he "Harpooned" Them all the Same—slo the Standard all Round. When a man owns a fast filly, and when he has been to a wedding and is feeling good on his way home, with good sleighing and the stars twinkling overhead, it is not strange that a desire should come over him to whoop it up. This is the way the three jolly Frenchmen felt on Tuesday night when they were arrested on Rice street for fast driv ing. Their names are J. Delos, P. Forkey and J.B.Simar,and they had looked on the wine when it sparkled and drank to the health of the bride, which acconnted for the reckless speed of the drive. The court said this racket was snide and it cost them ten bills each to get outside. C. B. Det rich and "Little Nick" Kovitz were arraigned for having been drunk and disorderly, an account of their escapade hav ing fully appeared in a previous issue of the Globe. Nick testified yesterday that Detrich had entered his place while drunk and that he commenced to fool with him. Nick, who was also half seas over, ordered him to quit his nonsense, when he grabbed hold of him. This enraged Nick and he picked up a hatch et and let it drive at him. Nick was fined §15 and the other man $10. A couple of paralyzed drunks were dis posed of,when the court took up the scalper's case. THE COURTS. United States Circuit Court. [Before Judge Nelson.

Collins en tered the store of Joseph Smith, corner of Seventh and Jackson streets,yesterday noon while the proprietor was absent at dinner and while one of them drew off the attention of the lady clerks from their labors the oth er slyly abstracted a valuable piece of ma roon colored satin, said to contain sixty yards and to be valued at 61.25 per yard, from the counter and made off with the goods. A description of the fellows was giv en the detectives, who arrested Collins, and taking him to the city hall he gave away Black Jack, who he said did the stealing while he sweet William was flirting with the fair ones, and told where the booty was planted. Later Detective O'Connor arrested Black Jack on a Minneapolis train, and the "lift" was found by officers in an unoccu pied cellar on Jackson street and brought to the city hall about 8:80 last evening. Black Jack graduated from the work house about a month ago. Reversing the Order.

Washixgtox, Feb. 27.—Senator Dawes, from the committee on Indian affairs, re ported favorably a bill for the allotment of lands in severalty to the Indians of the Umatilla reservation, Oregon. The following bills were introduced and referred: By Senator Maxey, to improve the chan nel between Galveston and the Gulf of Mexico. A cablegram was received by the secretary of state from St. Petersburg, announcing the death of Minister Hunt, and says he died from dropsy, superinduced by chronic Infla mation of the liver. Senator Van Wyck offered the following resolution, for which he asked immediate consideration: Resolved, That the committee on postoffices and post roads be directed to inquire whether at any time the Western Union and Balti more & Ohio Telegraph companies, or any officers or employes of said companies, en tered into a contract or negotiation for the purpose of consolidating said companies, or making a combination for any purpose. Senator Van Wyck explained, that some days ago he offered a resolution, confining the time for negotiations be referred to with in a year. The evidence of Dr. Green, yes terday, before the committee on postoflices and post roads, had, he said, clearly estab lished the fact, that a contract was made and executed two years ago, but that Elder Gar rett had defeated the operation of the con tract. It was neither patriotism or philan thropy, or terror at consolidation, or stock watering, that paralized the Elder Garrett. Western Union had shown no sorrow or tears at the proposed building of the Baltimore <te Ohio lines. They knew, as did Elder Garrett, that new lines by individuals, ment many millions more of fictitious stock to be divided by the Western Union and Baltimore & Ohio, but It ment also greater burdens upon the people. The fact that Bates, a trusted officer of the Western Union had gone over to the Baltimore & Ohio in apparent hostility to the Western Union, was significant. That offi cer bad, at the proper time, gone to the At lantic & Pacific, and the Mutual Union com panies, which, a short time afterwards were absorbed by the Western Uuion. Senator Plumb did not see any good to come of the resolution. After debate the resolution was referred to the committee on postorflees and post roads. Senator Blair introduced a bill to extend the time for the completion of railroads west of the Mississippi river, to which grants of public lands have been made, which, in good faith are prosecuting the work of construc tion, without forfeiture of such grants. Senator Lapham introduced a bill to incor porate the Yellowstone park railroad, and to aid in the construction of its road. Senator Vest offered a resolution, which was agreed to, calling on the secretary of the interior for information, as to whether a lease has been made of any part of the Crow reservation in Montana, to any person or association, and if so, the extent of such lease, upon what terms made, and by what authority of law has such action been "taken, also whether any such permit has been given to graze cattle on that reservation, and if so, by what authority of law it has been done. The senate resumed consideration of the bill to provide new cruisers for the navy. The debate was participated in by Jone9, (Florida), McPherson, Hale, Cockrell and Beck. The latter criticised the management of the navy yards, and referred to the state ment of Admiral Porter, that on one occas sion $80,000 had been charged to the wrong ship. He said, no one .could tell but what that money might have been given to Dorsey to take to Indiana. It was a shame the government could not build its own ships, but have to give the work to favored con tractors. It was a vice in the administra tion, dishonesty in the. management with connivance and collusion between the con tractors and the officers of the government. That was our trouble. Senator Vest said, but few moments ago while in the corridor, he had been appealed to by an officer of the navy, an old personal friend, saying "for God's sake Vest, vote for this bill." Vest told him he was mistaken, it was for John Roaches sake he meant, the Almighty had nothing to do with it. When steel ves sels are put up to competition, only Roach and Cramp could bid for them under the terms of the bill. Senator Hale said the committee on naval affairs was sponsor to this bill, and the com mittee had never heard of John Roach in connection with it. The bid of John Roach for steel vessels was $300,000 less than any other bidder. There never had been so clean and incorruptible an administration of the navy yards and the navy department as now. Senator Vest inquired, who brought on this question of the inefficiency of the navy yards? Was it not his ally from the marine, his assistant adjutant general, alluding to Butler, who did not know these navy yards were hot beds of po litical corruption? Senator Butler, with great warmth, repelled the assumption that he was the attorney or adjutant general of any one on this ques tion. The senator from Missouri had better state in plain terms what his real opposition to the bill is. It is that he has no confidence in the honesty of the present administration. It is that perhaps some political advantage may accrue to the party to which the senator from Missouri and myself do not belong, if we vote this sum of money to build these ships, but I refuse to subordinate a high pub lic duty to the achievement of party advan tage. Senator McPherson said, a gentleman who had been asked to estimate upon the ship which John Roach contracted for, had stated that if he could have had the same inspector to inspect the work that John Roach had, he could build them at John Roach's price. Senator Butler remarked, that when the senator from New Jersey, McPherson, said John Roach had put a representative in the navy department he, Butler, would take is ssue with him, He thought the senator ought to prove that Senator McPherson stated that he had not said that. Senator Butler inquired whether he now understood the senator as not charging: that John Roach had put a representative in the navy department? Senator .McPherson replied that if any senator had heard him make the statement which the senator from South Carolina charged, he (McPherson) would like to know it. Senator Butler continued, that no "lobby" had approached him on the subject of this bill. If the senators from Missouri or New Jersey had been approached, they had better say so. . . Senator Vest inquired what the gentleman meant. He did not consider his remarks fair, manly, just or generous. He did not permit any man to asperse his integrity, whether In the senate or elsewhere. Senator Butler replied, nothing has been further from his purpose than to cast any re flection on the senator. The debate closed for the day and the senate adjourned. The.House of Representatives. Washington, Feb. 27,—Mr, Morrison, chairman of ways and means, reported a res olution, directing the secretary of the treas ury to inform the house how much money is now in the treasury of the United States, under what provisions of the law is there re tained, and how much in view of current re ceipts, expenditures and legal liabilities on the treasury, can be applied at this time in liquidation of that part of the public debt now payable without embarrassing his department. Adopted. Mr. Valentine introduced a bill authorizing a bridge across the Missouri, near . Decatur. Referred. Mr. Phelps from the committee on foreign affairs reported back the Brumm resolution, directing the committee to inquire whether a minister of any foreign power endeavored to nullify the effect of a unanimous resolu tion of the house by a reflection on the honor and integrity of its members. The resolu tion was accompanied by a report, stating that the committee made an investigation, but had been unable to obtain any informa tion on the subject, and asks to be excused from any further consideration of the resolu tion. The report was agreed to without dis cussion and the committee discharged from further consideration of the subject. Mr. Lefevre offered a resolution reciting that speculation and gambling in American farm products obtained control of the mar ket value of those products, and directing the committee on judiciary to prepare a bill i prohibiting the purchase or sale of wheat, : corn, cotton, provisions, or other articles of prime, necessity, unless a transfer of the ar ticles, o.r a warehouse receipt accompanies such action. Also, a Dill authorizing such governmental interference as will give stability to the price of those commodities. Mr. Cox, of New York, and others objected. Mr. Bingham, from the committee on postoffices and post roads, reported adversely the bill to prevent the use of the United States mails to advertise noxious medicines, food and compounds. Laid on the table. : The house went into committee on the whole, • Mr. Cpx, of New York, in the chair, on the pleuro-pneumonia bill. Mr. Gibson moved to strike out section 3, ■ which provides that the states shall pay one half of the expense of the valuation of all animals which it is deemed necessary to i slaughter, and one-half of the cost of disin fection. Mr. Hatch, Missouri, moved to amend sec- I tion 4, by adding the words: -'Into any other j state or "territory or foreign country," to the j clause authorizing the president to prohibit the transportation of cattle out of a quaran tined state, territory or district, agrreed. Mr. Everhart offered an amendment for providing that no state or territory, or part thereof, shall be declared in quarantine, if the governor of the same shall officially cer tify to the president he is satisfied from in vestigation, that no disease dangerous to the animal industry of the nation exists therein. Adopted 115 to" 64. Mr. Muldrow offered an amendment, con fining the operatious of the bill to the disease of plenro-pneumonia only. Adopted, 100 to 73. Mr. Hatch, of Missouri, said, he was satis fled the adoption of the two amendments would utterly destroy the efficiency of the bill. He therefore moved to strike out the fourth section of the amendment. Agreed to. This Is the section which authorized the pres ident to quarantine a state in which con tagious disease exist*, when such state fail to make proper provisions for its extirpation, or to co-operate with the plans of the com missioner of agriculture. Mr. Throckmorton moved to strike out the enacting clause of the bill. Lost, 118 to 114. The debate continued all the afternoon and was rather dreary. The consideration of the bill being concluded, the committee rose and reported it to the house. The first question was on the amendment striking out the fourth section. Pending action the house adjourned. DRAW POKES. All the Rage in Boston—What One of Its Devotees Knows About the Oante. "Draw poker getting to be quite a popular game in Boston? Well, I should say so, my boy," said a prominent sporting man, as he twirled his mustache complacently. "And a good game it is, too." "Why, any man can go in and play faro or roulette with just as much chance of win ning as an old hand at the business. But when it comes to poker, why, it takes nerve and no little skill It i3n't every man you meet that can sit behind a 'full house' or a 'flush' and play it for all it's worth without giving himself away." "Where is all the playing done?" "Why, everywhere and anywhere. The great night for playing is Saturday night, and it is getting to be quite the thing to form lit tle poker clubs of from four to six, and sit down to a little quiet game until 12 o'clock, and then quit. Some parties meet at the rooms of the members, when they happen to board at a hotel or haven't a wife or mother who objects if they play at home. Then others meet at regular poker rooms kept for just this purpose. At these rooms the house gen erally has a man who sit£ in with the party and banks. He takes Itfs chances along with the rest, and if he isn't made of the right stuff) or, if he has hard luck, he may lose quitea little pile for his employers." "But hasn't the 'house,', as you call it, any recompense for the use of their rooms except what their representative may win?" "Yes; I'll tell you how. You know when there is a misdeal, or when everybody passes without drawing cards, that makes what we call a 'jack-pot.' Now, the game that is played in most of these rooms is 20-cent ante and SI limit. Of course, if it is a swell place they play a bigger game. But whatever the 'ante' is when there is a 'jack-pot,' each man has to put that amount in the pot, except the banker, who puts in half of the sum; the other half he puts through a hole in the table into what is called the 'kitty,' or 'betsy.' All that goes into the 'kitty' is the perquisite of the bank, and in the course of the evening it amounts to considerable." "What class of men play the most, do you ask? Well, that's a hard question to an swer. 1 guess that all classes, except the ministers, play more.or.less. Thehigh-toned fellows play at the clubs, and you "can. bet they play high. Hundreds and sometimes thousands of dollars change hands in anierbt. But the men who play most are the young fellows about town, most'of whom have more money than brains, and commercial men. The formeT generally.plays a wild, reckless game, and consequently lose heavily. As they can afford it, however, nobody pities them. But the drummers! Ah! they often make us professional men feel weary! You can't tell by their looks whether they've struck four of a kind or a busted straight. And when they start in betting, whether they have a good hand or are trying a bluff, the man who wants to see their hand pays for it, I tell you. It's amusing to see a fresh man draw a good hand. He smiles contin uously, grows red, and makes a strenuous effort to look unconcerned. When it comes his turn to bet he generally raises the limit right away, and scares everybody out. The other night a fellow got mad because he couldn't raise §100 in a dollar-limit game. These are the fellows that get fleeced. But they soon learn, and you know in this world you can't get anything without paying for it, and experience comes particularly high." "But isn't this growing fondness for poker hurting the faro-banks-?" queried the seeker after truth. . --"• „. "Well, I should so rejnark! And it's a good thing, too. These banks are regular swindles anyway, and the man that begins to buck them is lost. With poker it rs different. Although it is a fascinating game it doesn't set anyone wild like faro, and you can't lose as much either, unless you' play an awful steep game. They tell me that some of those fellows who struck it rich out west in mining play a good game, and. play high at Washing ton. But of course everybody can't do that, and you'll find that in the average game that's played here in the city it's very sel dom that any one loses over $30 or §40 in an evening. And then you're sure of a square deal at poker, as a general rule' but with faro, —now I'll give you a pointer, having dealt in a bank myself once. The chances are nine out of ten that the dealer fixes things so that you are bound to lose. "If you want to find out any more about the game come around spme night, and I'll get you into a little party. Perhaps, being a newspaperman, they'll "let you down easy. Good-night; I must be off."— Boston, Globe. The JUaiden. of the Skiff. [Florida Tnion.] As the United States mail boat was en route from Port Orange to Titusville on the 24th ult., she encountered a severe gale when near Capt. J. F. McCarthy's, on Mosquito Lagoon, the wind blowing in gusts from the south in such rapidity that it was evident that the little craft could not long weather the now heavy seas, as for a moment she would be seen bounding over them and then almost lost to view in their depths. Although manned by a good sailor, >she careened and . was at once lost to view, The youngest daughter of Capt. McCarthy, Mrs*. M. A. Smith, witnessing the imminent peril in which the owner of the boat was placed, at once jumped into a small skiff which was anchored at her father's dock, set out at once to the rescue of the mail.and boatman, who was in danger every moment of losing his life, and the many valuable packages prob ably contained, in the mail. She rowed one and a half miles, daring the n^w high-rolling waves, and brought safety to the shore the ever grateful mail carrier'and two others who were aboard the craft. A MARQUIS OF MONTANA, The Gentleman who Fought the Cow- boys at Little Missouri. Ten Months' Work of the Marquis De Mores in the Bad Lands. [New York Sun.] The Marquis de Mores came to New York in August, 1882. After a short time he was attracted by the stories of the new territory along the Northern Pacific railroad, and he finally determined to see it for himself. In looking over the business prospects of the re gion he learned that the people were doing a very peculiar thing in the way of supplying themselves with a necessary artieleof diet. Ranchmen and stock breeders were raising cattle which they sold to drovers. The dro i vers shipped the cattle to Chicago slaughter houses. The people of the cities along the line of the road (there were no villages, though some of the cities contained only three houses) were sending to Chicago for beef, which was shipped to them in refrigerator cars. The two transpoatation3 brought up the price of steaks to a figure which New York market men would "call handsome. The Marquis made inquiry concerning tne shipment of cattle. He found that a certain part of Mon tana shipped an average of 4,500 cattle a month, and imported five car loads of thirty beeves each per day. The opportunity offered for the slaughtering business in Montana was good. The Marquis embraced it. Of this the public knew nothing, but in June last, soon after his determination to go into the business, a very thrilling account of his encounter with cowboys near Little Mis souri was telegraphed to the New York news papers. Some men had tried to run the Marquis out of the country. The attempt gave the Marquis an opportunity to win the respect of his western neighbors, and the cowboys an opportunity to get hurt. One of them died suddenly during the encounter. They were agents for eastern land owners, and had at first tried to force the Marquis into a bargain which he did not think a good one. After this encounter the marquis was al lowed to pursue his own devices. He pursued them mostly on horseback, with a sombrero on his head, a red shirt on his back, and cor duroy trousers tucked into very long-legged boots. His jewelry had siver-mounted handles, and were hung to a heavy leather belt. He finally decided that the railroad bridge over the Little Missouri river overlooked the land he wished to buy. He purchased six square miles of the land, and started in to build a city as well as a new industry. His first building in the new city was a tent, which he pitched unaided, on April 1, 18S3. When the last peg was driven, he named the city Medora. Medora is also the name of the marquis's wife, who Is the daughter of Mr. L. Yon Hoffman, the Wall street banker. Six hundred persons are now on the spot engaged In helping the growth of the city. The Badlands Cowboy, of which Mr. G. Packard, a former Chicago reporter, is the editor, tells each of the 600 what the rest have been doing during the week, and to the public at large details the many nat ural and acquired advantages of the new city as a place of business and residence. It has done this since Febuary 4, a day that will therefore long be remembered in Medora. In the meantime the Marquis has not neg lected his original intention of supplying the Montana cities with their own beef without the intervention of the Chicago butchers. He began by calling his enterprise the North ern Pacific Refrigerating company. It was a cold day among the slaughter houses in Chicago when he began. Then he purchased some, cattle and sheep to stock his land with. The wire fences of the south and the cutting thereof did not trouble him. Nature had pro vided him with natural fences, in the high, steep banks of the Missouri river. A single line overthe"divide" from creek to creek enclosed the pasture. Then slaughter houses all on one plan were built at the larger places from St. Paul west. At both Miles City and Glen dive the people united in buying 200 acres of land, which they presented to him in consideration of his establishing the new in dustry of beef making. At St. Paul he built a large refrigerator house. When ready he bought all the cattle that the ranchmen had to sell along the line of the road. He slaughtered them at convenient houses, and distributed the beef in refrigerator cars un der a contract with the Northern Pacific. When the supply dropped he drew from his own herds. He kills about 200 head of cat tle a day now. His private herds at present number 6,000 head. He employes in all about 150 men. Near Bismarck he bought 20,000 acres of wheat lands. To induce farmers to settle around that land he gives to each newcomer the use of forty acres of broken land one year free, which gives the man a crop the first year he is there. When the beef business was firmly on its hoofs he gave more attention to the growth of the new city of Medora. He imported in all over 1,000,000 feet of lumber for building. He had observed that the divide on the top of the ridge between the Little Missouri and the Missouri rivers was almost a natural roadway that led directly toward Deadwood. He gave this natural roadway needed artificial im provements, and started the Deadwood and Medora.stage line. This is now diverting the Deadwood,trade to Medora, to the great ad vantage of.both places. The road will open up stock farms along the Little Missouri. It is not impossible that Medora may be the terminus of a Deadwood railway. On Saturday the marquis registered at the Hotel Brrmswiek. in this city. When ques tioned yesterday he refused to speak of his troubles in the west, merely saying that the bandits, not western farmers, at tacked him. The people along the line of the road had given him every encouragement in his enterprise. The busi ness had proved profitable, he said. He came here in the interest of his business, and would return in a week. Of the country and its prospects and its possibilities he spoke enthusiastically. Of the temperature in win ter he said; "I was there during January. It was cold. The telegraph gave you the thermometer's register there. But I walked and rode about comfortably without an over coat, because the air was dry. I have felt the cold much more severely in New York, and in Washington even. My cattle are grass fed, and they are fat. There are no better grass fed cattle in the country." The marqnis Is twenty-six years old. He is tall, and probably weighs not far from 170 pounds. He stands squarely on his heels with his shoulders back. He has very dark hair, grey eyes a very dark moustache, and regular features: in all, the marquis is a fine looking man. His dress yesterday was dark and of very fashionable cut. A silk hat re placed the sombrero of the plains. Any one would pick him out for a successful broker, but none would suspect him to be the mana ger of the various interests he has In charge along the line of the Northern Pacific rail road. Jeic and Christian Marriages. The rejection by the Hungarian upper house of the Jews" and Christians' marriage bill will probably prove fatal to the present constitution of that body. It has had an un interrupted existence from the middle ages down to the present day. In Hungary all the sons of a magnate inherit their father's title and take their seats during his lifetime as soon as they are twenty-four years of age. This, combined with the division of the lam ily estate among all the sons, not only swells inordinately the number of magnates, but also includes in the titled class a great num ber of impoverished families. Throughout Hungary counts and barons are to be found who are never summoned to the upper house and never think of claiming their seats. The opposition now reproach the government for bringing up members of such voters who "had never in their lives appeared there be fore. - . To be Brought Home.
