With their customary simulated solicitude
the Repubticans, through their subsoil papers,
are paying far more attention to the Demo
cratic than to the Republican mayorality
contest. In that they manifest less than
their usual sagacity. The Democrats
are capable of manipulating their
own campaign, even though
there be a little internal strife which thenear
eighted Republicans can not interpret as a
matter of course it is in the direct interest of
the corrupt Republican ring to invent all
sorts of cock and bull siories with hope of
circumventing the ligitimate ends of the
Democracy but that they will
eventuate in an ignominous
failure the contest will soon fully demonstrate.
The following clipped from a partizan "or
gan " is at least superlatively ridiculous, and
may serve to illustrate our point:
" The secret of the trouble over the call for the
Democratic convention may be found in this* fact:
Alderman Glenn is understood to have said that
he will not be a candidate against Geo. A. Pills
bury ; Aid. Pillubury has also.it is equally well
understood, said he would not be a candidate
against M. W. Glenn. The friends of Ames,
therefore, knowing that there is strong feeling in
the Republican party in favor of Pillsbury, and
fearing that Glenn will receive the Democratic
nomination, see that their only hope of killing
him off lies in the postponement of the Demo
cratic convention until after the Republican con
vention shall have been held. They are there
fore on the war path in full force, and propose to
force Glenn to postpone the date for the Demo
cratic convention. The first ward alderman has
blood in his eye, however, and will refuse to
make the change. There would seem therefore
to be but one of two courses for the Ames fac
tion to pursue—either make the best of the bar
gain as it stands, or call a second convention. A
meeting of the entire committee, at which the
chairman was last evening requested to be pres
ent, was called for this afternoon at the Nicollot
house, and a lively quarrel is anticipated."
A meeting was held as announced in the
twilight sheet, but the quarrel which the
pseudo Mother Shipton predicted did not oc
cur. Consequently the sunset oracle is this
morning trembling so forcibly that his po
litical boots will beat a lively tattoo upon the
floor of the sanctum, so that
the office boy will be frightened out of his
wits—if he ever had any—while he runs
frantically up and down stairs to learn what
is wanted of him.
The sapient paragraphist of the Tallow-
Dip says that March 4 promises to be a regu
lar Donnybrook among the local Democracy.
He is mistaken. The Democratic convention
will be held on the 18th, and not on the 4th,
and when it is held the utmost harmony will
prevail. Can the Journal say as much of the
Republican convention to be held on the Cth?
We guess not.
The Democratic city committee held a
conference in the parlors of the Nicollet
house yesterday afternoon, the upshot of
which was to postpone the city convention
just two weeks. Whether this action will
have any effect upon the party in the coming
contest or not, is a question yet to be solved.
Now that the ultra prohibitionist, Aid.
Clark, has been converted to the Republican
cause, the Republican organs arc resplendent
in their praise. They find a solace in the
fact, and are fools enough to believe that
this 6ingle conversion secures to them an
overwhelming election this spring.
The political fun will soon be at its height.
The Republicans have heated their pokers,
and are now trying to stir up the Democratic
camp fires. But the hose will soon be turned
upon them and they will seek shelter.
: While there is lack of harraony in the
Democratic ranks there is no lack of rancor
in the Republican camp. • There is a deal of
growling, barking, and even biting—but the
litter is entirely i>a?t-biting.

Edward Jiouen Frozen to Death While
Drunk — A Terrible Fate.
Yesterday morning about 7 o'clock the
body of a man frozen stiff \ in death was
found in the back yard of a residence on
Thirtieth street, between Twenty-eighth and
Twenty-ninth streets south, near the Har
vester works. Police headquarters was tele
phoned to and the coroner was immediately
notified of the sad discovery.
The remains. were • removed to the
undertaking rooms of Warner & Co.,
where an • investigation was held and
the following facts elicited: The
deceased resided on Twenty-fifth street,
between Twenty-sixth and Twenty-seventh
avenues south. . He was seen last night in
lower town drinking hard, as late as 10
o'clock. He started for home but his brain
being muddled from excessive drinking, he
lost his way. About 3 o'clock yesterday
morning shouts were heard by the inhabi
tants of lower town, j but no j attention was
paid to them as they were supposed to emanate
from some drunken man on his way home.
The tracks made by the poor inebriate showed
that he went to the back doors: of several
residences seeking shelter, and in the va
cant house near which his corpse was dis
covered there were evidences indicating
that he had wandered through the several
rooms in search of a fire to warm his be
numbed limbs. His frozen bod) was found
near the steps of a residence, with his knees
drawn up to his chin. He leaves a large
family unprovided ' for. The sad fate of
Rouen is a powerful temperance sermon.
The Milling Industry.
[Northwestern Miller.]
The stage of water last week was better, on
the whole, thin for several weeks, and, while
the total output shows a slight loss, the work
done with water as a motive power was larger.
The pr oprietors of those mills in operation
felt quite well satisfied, as a rule, with the
amount of flour turned out. The production
of the week amounted to 61,208 barrels—lo,
--201 barrels daily—against 64,709 barrels the
preceding week. This week the
water was very good Monday and
Tuesday, but on Wednesday forenoon
it had dropped to a pretty low point. The
opinion prevails that very many weeks can
not elapse before the water power must im
prove, it being the belief on the part of many
that the several days of thawing weather in
the past fortnight were not without a certain
effect for good. The flour market shows a
steady growth in strength and confidence,
but is minus the boom element.

Board of Education.
The board of education met in regular ses
sion yesterday afternoon and transacted the
fallowing business:
The committee on course of studies was
granted further time to make a report.
Geo. A. Pillsbury, from the committee
on buildings, said that in accordance with
the statutes three story buildings shall be
supplied with fire escapes. The Washington
school building, in particular, should be sup
plied with fire escapes and three other build
ings should be condemned, the cost for the
four buildings aggregating about §3,000.
Mr. Austin stated that the contract for re
building the Irving school had been awarded
to R. N. Brighton, for $16,700. The build
ing committee had also selected six lots of
block eleven, of Maben and White's addition,
for a building site on Western avenue, at a
cost of $3,500. The site was ordered pur
chased. The fire escape committee
was instructed to continue their investiga
tions in reference to the best kind of fire es
capes, with power to act.
Prof. Moore submitted nis report for Janu

The monthly budget of bills, amounting to

On motion the board adjourned until

The Charity Ball.
To-night the charity ball for the benefit of
the Ohio sufferers, will take place in the
Armory building, Eighth street and First av
enue, South Minneapolis. This charitable
movement has long been in contemplation,
and it was the intention of many of our well
to-do citizens, especially the bachelors, to
have had the charity ball take place last
week, but the hall was previously engaged
for the Armory fair, and the time could not
be set until this, Thursday, evening, Febru
ary 28, 1884. Gossip has been rife regarding
the probable success of an undertaking like
this, but such an overwhelming interest was
manifested by all classes, that the executive
committee were, profoundly satisfied in mak
ing the experiment. Suffice it to say, that
the large number of tickets sold settles the
question beyond doubt, and no one hesitates
to say that the result will be most gratifying.
The generous responses that are made to the
appeals for aid is an evidence of the sincere
sympathy manifested on all sides.
It might be conceded that many have
bought tickets who do not intend to be present,
but the majority have supplied themselves in
order to avoid the crowd. The spacious hall
is 64x144' feet, and will be abundantly decor
ated by silk embellishments, flrgs and bunt
ing. Under the supervision of the best com
poser, an excellent programme of music has
been prepared, from the works of renowned
authors. The waiting room of the ladies will
receive considerable attention, and much
care bestowed by the reception committee.
Tickets can still be obtained at Dyer & How
ard's music store, Minneapolis.

] Special Correspondence of the Globe.]
White Bear, Feb. 27.—1t may be said of
this somewhat pastoral yet decidedly cosmo
politan community that howsoever lively,
genial, attractive and bustling it may be
through the grand season of resort and
pleasure, it is nevertheless never dead nor
stupid nor lacking animation during the
long winter of snow and ice. Independent
of the list of regular balls and social hops
there is a continuous list of highly enjoyable
musical soirees, surprise parties, neighborly
sleigh rides, candy pulls, etc., etc., so that
both the bears and the cube are thus steadily
kept from-burrowing as do the heavier fur
bearing species.
Just at tills writing the general run of
events is somewhat invaded by bugle notes
and the ominous sound of many other wind
instruments in the course of practice through
out the village. The organization (or reviv
ing) of the White Bear band having been
this week brought upon the tapis with much
earnestness. Mr. Fred. Selber, a prominent
citizen and one of the best rustlers of the
place, has led off in the matter, and is being
joined by numbers of our brightest young
men, besides being duly encouraged by all
our business residents. It is expectrd that
the organization will be fully consummated
by or before the close of the present week.
Mr. Arthur L. Shepard, one of the well es
tablished and popular young business men

and exchanged very cordial visits with Col.
Fisk this afternoon. Max.
He Severely Whips a Little, Girl, is Arrested
and His Trial to Come off To
The general halo of Isoothing peace, which
the sounds of full-blast music had spread
over the place, was suddenly scattered to the
four winds, and the public pulse is at this
moment stirred to an exciting tension by an
instance of over-zealous discipline, involving
a resort to what appears as a very harsh and
unwarranted punishment of a little girl pupil
of the higher department of our village pub
lic school on Monday afternoon by the teach*
er, Mr. Kellogg. The child is the bright lit
tle daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Robt. Cosgrove,
she bearing such welts across her face and
neck, and black and blue spots, and other
welts on her shoulders and back
as to excite very harsh criticism,
and much indignation on the part of various
citizens as they were made aware of .the facts.
The parents of the child were, however, both
absent in St. Paul, not hearing of the affair
until their return yesterday, but upon view
ing the child proceeded immediately to
swear out complaint and cause the arrest of
the teacher. Mr. Kellogg was brought before
Justice Clarke at 3 p. m. yesterday, when,
without making any plea, he asked for time
to procure counsel, and the case was set for
to-morrow (Thursday) at 11 a. m., the pris
oner giving bond for appearance. Both
sides will undoubtedly have counsel from
St. Paul, and if the trial should really
take place here—or even if transferred to
some other court as is somewhat talked—it
will attract a large attendance from among
our citizens, and will, for various reasons
—some not altogether commendable—de
velop a divided sentiment in the premises.
Mr. Kellogg, the teacher, is from Wisconsin,
is newly wedded and resides with his young
wife in the Chase dwelling. He has had
some pretty rough experience at different
times with his school, and while he will have
to answer to some pretty ugly charges, yet he
will have zealous friends and undoubtedly
be assured a fair hearing.

L. L. Stewart was taken sick on Sunday the
10th inst., aud died at 1 o'clock p. m. on the 18th.
Kis disease was very complicated, having lung,
bilious and typhoid fevers all at once. The ordeal
was too much for even a strong man to bear, and
although the best of medical aid and best of at
tendance were given the sufferer, he succumbed
to the inevitable. Mr. Stewart was a young man
twenty-six years old, of a very quiet disposition,
amiable and affable, loved and respected by all
who knew him. Not a manner escaped his lips
during his illness, and although
the powerful man struggled hard
for life—life go sweet to ns all, yet when he
found he must lose in the unequal struggle, he
yielded with the courage of a brave,stout-hearted
man. His life was an exemplary one, and how
much better thus, with a name that will shine
out in the pall of darkness that surrounds us,and
may prove a "Star in Bethlehem" to some wan
dering soul.
Mr. Stewart will long be remembered by all
who knew him, as a man in the full sense of the
term, and one who initiated himself into the
good graces of all whom he met, and whose in
fluence was on the side of humanity and right.
May his soul rest in peace.
History of the Location of Our National
Mr. Davis Brodhead ha 6 rescued from the
oblivion of the congressional records the in
teresting documents in relation to the loca
tion of our national capital. Before the fed
eral government had a permanent seat seve
ral states, through their legislatures, offered
to congress the use of all necessary buildings
during the time it would hold its sessions in
their respective states, but New York city had
appropriated its public buildings and the first
congress met there.
In May, 1789, Virginia offered to the fed
eral government ten miles square of its ter
ritory in any part of that state which con
gress might choose as the seat of the federal
government. About the same time Mary
kind made the same offer. These were the
first movements, under the new constitution,
toward the establishment of the seat of gov
ernment. Numerous memorials anl peti
tions followed from Pennsylvania, New Jer
sey and Maryland.
On the sth of September, 1789, a resolu
tion passed the house of representatives
"that the government of the United States
ought to be at some convenient place on the
banks of the Susquehanna, in the state of
Pennsylvania." On the introduction of
the bill to carry this resolution into
effect much feeling was manifested by
the southern members, and particularly by
the members from Virginia, who contended
that the banks of the Potomac were the most
suitable place. The debate upon the intro
duction of this bill was so hot that Mr. Madi
son declared that if the proceedings of that
day had been foreseen by Virginia that state
might not have become a party to the con
stitution. (See annals of congress vol. 1,
page 890.) This bill was passed by the house,
but amended in the senate by striking out all
that part respecting the Susquehanna and
designating Germantown, Penu., as the per
manent seat of government, provided the
state or the citizens thereof gave security to
pay $100,000 for the erec
tion of public buildings. These
amendments were agreed to by the house,
with an amendment that the laws of Penn
sylvania should continue in force in the pro
posed district. The bill was then returned to
the senate, but the consideration of the house
amendment was postponed to the next ses
sion. Both houses had, therefore, actually

Baltimore was proposed as the k cation
at the next session of congress, the citizens
of that place having raised between twenty
and thirty thousand pounds to erect suitable
buildings; but the proposition was without
New York and Pennsylvania had gratuit
ously furnished "elegant and convenient
accommodation" for the use of the govern
ment during the eleven years that it was lo
cated within their respective limits, as it
appears from the resolutions passed by con
gress on its removal, They had offered to
continue to do so. New Jersey had offered
accommodations at Trenton. The citizens
of Baltimore, through their representative,
proposed to furnish money for the erection
of the necessary buildings in that "town"
for the federal government.
One hundred thousand dollars had been re
quired to be paid by Pennsylvania or its cit
izens as a condition of the location of the
government in 4hat state. This was the con
dition of affairs when the propositions of
Virginia and Maryland were brought forward
to advance one hundred and ninety-two
thousand dollars, to be applied toward erect
ing public buildings at the permanent seat
of the government of the United States on
the banks of the Potomac.
ggOn the 31st of May, 1790, a bill was intro
duced in the senate to determine the perma
nent seat of congress and the government
of the United States.
Congress discussed the proposition to as
sume the state debts, but finally this was
done. The author of this article says on the
subject of the feeling that was shown:
"Secession"*and"dissolution" were spoken
of at that early day; a "compromise" was re
sorted to; those who desired the location of
the seat of government on the »banks of the
Potomac were gratified; and those at the
north, underthelead of Alexander Hamilton,
obtained the funding system and Pennsyl
vania lost the permanent seat of the federal
government. It is true Virginia was
greatly displeased with the act funding
the state debts, but Mr. Jefferson says the
"pill" was "sweetened" by a
measure," to-wit: The location of the fed
eral government on the banks of the Poto
mac. The following extract from Mr. Jef
ferson's "Memoirs and Correspondence,"
pages 448 and 449, volume 4, clearly proves
how the business was managed. m Mr. Jeffer
son says: "The great and trying question
(the assumption of the state debts), however,
was lost in the house of representatives. So
excited [by this subject, that, on its rejection,
business was suspended. Congress met and
adjourned from day to day without doing
anything, the parties being too much out
of temper to do business together. The
Eastern members particularly, who with
Smith, from South Carolina, were the princi
pal gamblers in these scenes, threatened se
cession and dissolution. Hamilton wa3 in
despair. As I was going to the President's
one day, I met him in the street. He walked
me backward and forward before the Presi
dent's door for half an hour. He painted
pathetically the temper into which the legis
lature had been wrought; the disgust of those
who were called the creditor states; the dan
ger of the secession of their members and
the separation of the states. He observed
that the members of the administration
ought to act in concert.

The Jewish Colony.
There is no truth in the report of the Jew
ish colony, north of Bismarck, starving, al
though some of them are too lazy to work.
Ever since their arrival they have been sup
ported to a great degree by Dr. Weschler, of
St. Paul, but that gentleman refuses to help
them more, as, so long as he does, they refuse
to work. Each member of the
colony has an ox team, and each has ten
acres of timber, and wood is worth $3 per
cord. The only ones in want, if any, are
those who refuse to work. Not one case has
been reported here.
TJie Storm.
The storm of yesterday proved one of the
most serious of the season in the way of
obstructing railways. The trains from the
east have all been several hours late and
none arrived from the west yesterday. The
Dakota division of the Northern Pacific is
now reported clear. The passengertrain due
here Sunday night will arrive about 4 to
morrow morning. It was detained twenty
four hours at Glendive by an overflow of the
Yellowstone and at other points by the snow.

There is a great deal of enthusiasm in the
Black Hills over the probable opening of the
Sioux reservation and the construction of a
railroad connecting them with the outer
world. They are now 150 miles from rail
road connections.
A paper has been started at West End on
Devil's lake. There is a fair presumption
that a town, or at least a saloon and hotel,
will soon follow when a newspaper appears
in Dakota. But this West End has robust
prospects or hopes.
There is trouble at Larimore for some of
the trustees of the Presbyterian church. They

After several efforts Devil's Lake City has
at last voted to incorporate, and become a
city in fact as well as name. Lieut. Creel,
who is the graat mogul of the community,
withdrew his opposition. There is consid

storms and colds. Not many cellars, how
ever, are dug through the five feet of frost.
A business maa at Pierre recently received
a letter from New York inquiring If he would
like to have a few thousand half dollar
counterfeits to "pass" on commtssion, and
expressing the opinion that Dakota was a
very fruitful country to work in. It is be

At Jamestown Monday evening the ladies
of the Episcopal society gave their last enter
tainment before Lent in the shape of a phan
tom sociable. All the participants were en
cased in sheets and pillow cases,and although
it was a ghostly-looking assemblage accord
ing to the popular conception of ghostly at
tire, there was a rare amount of sport and
hilarity in the various games.
The ladies, young of course, as all unmar
ried ladies are, and their gents at Jamestown
have a novelty in the way of a coasting club.
They have large sleds and a long slide down
one of the bluffs, with horses to haul the

D. DeTray, mother of the DeTray brothers,
in the eastern part of Sully county, has re
ceived notice to be represented at a meeting
of the heirs of Hugh Moshor, who died in
1660 and left an estate valued at several mil
lions entailed on the heirs of the fifth genera
tion. A large part of the estate was in" real
ty, leased for 99 years, and the whole estate
with accumulations now amounts to over
twenty-three millions.
The Black Hills Journal has information
that "the Deadwood merchants are deter
mined to make the Northern Pacific route a
freight route, as quite a number of them are
ordering their stocks from the east via Dick
inson. There is, however, an opinion among
them that Dickinson will not long remain the
point of transfer of goods from the cars to
wagons, as Little Missouri station is much
nearer the Hills. Incase a change be made
it will be pretty rough on the Dickinson peo
ple, who have done much to bring the route
into notice."
A small sheet called the Mystic Star has
been started at Bismarck, as the organ of
the "kickers," at the attempt to saddle the
cost of the state house upon the people. It
says: "The $100,000 in bonds we are going
to resist with all our might. It is hanging
over Burleigh county like a demon's sword.
It is likely, at any future day, to fall and
.cleave from the hard earnings of the people
over $300,000 before it is paid." It is not
well understood as to the present legal status
of the matter.

200 men, has been organized to go upon the

part of the Sioux reservation, and the people
are in hopes that it will be opened at an
early date.
N. T. Smith, of the Huron Times returned
from Washington the past week and ex
presses the opinion that no bill relating to
admission or division will pass at this ses
sion, and he says that his opinion is gener
ally concurred in by the friends of Dakota
at the capital. He thinks that the reserva
tion bill will pass, and that C. T. McCoy
will be confirmed. Gov. Ordway has secured
another extension of his leave, until the 25,
and will probably ask for a further one.
Judge Edgerton, R. F. Pettigrcw and Bart- !

the north, still remain on the ground.
The La Moure Chronicle is interviewing the
farm ere of that section as to their experience
and impressions, and this by Jeff Smith is a
fair statement of the situation there: Here
the government is giving away the finest
land in the world, or the railway company is
selling it for $5 to $10 an acre on time. Liv
ing is no more expensive here than else
where after you have begun to raise yeget
ables, pouliry and stock. Machinery, cattle,
horses and buildings cost about the same as
in the easl. Hay costs little more than the
expense of cutting and hauling. There is a
ready market at home for milk, butter, poul
try and vegetables. The government has
reserved one-eighteenth of the land to be
sold for school purposes, and this is going to j
make our schools self supporting. The peo
ple here are the best that have so far been
made. If a man can't prosper and be hap
py here the fault is with himself. This is
equally true of nearly all portions of north

Attorney C. W. Butts is a bachelor, at Lis

The efforts of hundreds of blithe and beauti

At Larimore, in northern tier of counties
the storm last week was a genuine blizzard.
The Leader relates this incident in connec
tion with it: "Mr. Benjamin and his son
Burt were caught'out in the great storm, and
obliged to spend the night on the prairie.
They were hauling hay, and when within
three miles of town the storm burst upon
them in all its fury. They stopped and shel
tered themselves and cattle as best they could
behind the load. As soon aa it began to
grow dark Mr. Benjamin saw that it was use
less to try to make his way to the city, so he
and his son dug holes into the load of hay
and crawled in, where they spent the night.
Owing to the high temperature (about zero)
they did not suffer much from cold."
There are many who feel like this Dakota
writer: "I look upon the past development
of Dakota as one of the spectaoles of modern
times. But little more than three years have
passed since I first set foot upon her rich and
virgin soil,at which time there were not tojex
ceed 300 miles of railroad within her boun
daries. Now there is scarcely less than as
many thousands; and then, too, where there
was less than 50,000 people, fully 300,000
find happy homes to-day. There is, to me, an
undefinable fascination in watching the vari
ous changes incident to the development of a
new country. Tbe erection of the settler's
shack, the first upturning of the virgin soil,
the building of railroads, and the construc
tion of towns and cities, all possess for me a
witchery that I cannot explain."
The Milwaukee Wisconsin reports that a
cocking main took place in that town on the
morning of the 25th on Twenty-eighth street,
just outside the city limits, between birds
from Chicago, Evanston and Milwaukee, and
that the home chickens were defeated and
sixteen cocks were killed. Sporting gentle
men deny all knowledge of the main.
At 6 o'clock a morning or two since three
men went into the Little Plankinton restau
rant, on Grand avenue, Milwaukee, and
called for breakfast. The night clerk was
sitting at the desk when one of the men
placed a chloroformed handkerchief around
his face and held it until he was unconscious.
They then robbed the place, securing about
eight dollars in change, and hurriedly de
Peter Connolly, a Milwaukee man 60 years
of age, met a violent death about 9:30 o'clock
Monday evening. While intoxicated,he had,
for the second time in a couple of hours,
called upon his wife at the place where she
worked, 214 Wells street, in the "Brown
Row." They had a quarrel, and Mrs. Con
nolly, who is between 35 and 40 years of age,
threw a pail of water at him as he was leav
ing. The pail struck him in the head, mak
ing a gash, and losing his balance, Connolly
fell down stairs, breaking his neck in the
descent. He expired in a few minutes.
The woman was arrested. She married Con
nolly fouryears ago,butdidnot live with him,
but was employed in the boarding house
where the tragedy occurred.
An Oskosh special to the Milkaukee Wis
consin says that a searching party from
Brothertown, who had been scouring the lake
for Henry Potter, whose body was found on
the ice at a late hour on Friday evening,
reached this city Saturday afternoon and
learned the sad fate of the missing man.
They immediately started home with the
body. The deceased was 50 years of age and
leaves a wife and two small children. Pot
ter was frozen to death on Tuesday last,
and the poor horses were compelled to
stand in the driving storm for four days
and three .nights without food or drink,
the sleigh having become firmly
frozen to the ice. Potter had abandoned his
team and made an unsuccessful effort to
reach the shore. His tracks in a circle show
ed how he had tramped round and round un
til he fell near where he had sturted from.
He lay on his back tightly hugging a bottle
of alcohol, from which not a drop had been
taken. The famishing horses had gnawed
the hickory sleigh tongue nearly in two, and
had also devoured the neck-yoke. On the
trip to this city, after the rescue, the horses
made frantic efforts to devour the
cushions and back seat of the sleigh,
to which they were attached, and one of
the parties, with a buffalo coat on, who ap
proached too near the desperate brutes, near
ly lost his comfortable garment, as they
seized the shaggy coat with ttieir teeth, and
were with difficulty compelled to release their
ravenous grip. On their arrival at Holmes'
livery stable, the animals gave out com
pletely, and, kneeling down on the floor,
began gnawing the floor and grabbing every
thing within reach. They were fed sparing
ly of hot bran mash, the amount being in
creased as their condition improved. The
horses will be all right in a few days.
No Insult Offered.
Toroxto, Feb. 27.—There is no truth in
the statement of several American papers
that an insult was offered the American flag
on Washington's birthday, by the proprietors
of the Mail. The American flag has always
flown from the office of the consul in the
Mail building, and on an occasion like that
in question has flown from the main tower of
the building, until the time for which it is
ordered up by the consul has expired.
The Prison Officials.
New York, Feb. 27.—A conference of
the officials of the prisons throughout the coun
try began to-day. The conference was gotten
up by the National Prison association, and
several state associations propose learning
the views of officials in regard to the reform
needed in prisons and jails.
