ST. PAUL NEWS. ONE MORE STEP. Consolidation of Companies Form ing the Wisconsin Central's Line into St. Paul. Company Organized to Build a Rail way Line from Minneapolis to Fort Snelling 1 . Custom House Vexations at the Manitoba Border.— The Canadian Pacific's New Route East. Trouble For the Traveling Public. A circular has been issued by C. H. War ren, general passenger agent of the St. Paul & Manitoba road, explaining the trouble and disagreement that has arisen between the :ustoms department at Winnipeg and the Canada Pacific railway, which interferes with travel into Manitoba. The following extract from a letter from the general superintend ent of the Canadian Pacific railroad to the inspector oi customs at Winnipeg is given by Mr. Warren : "I have received instructions to discon tinue paying customs officers for work per formed by them before and after customs hours and on Sundays and legal holidays. This will be carried out after this month has expired." And also another communication from commissioner of customs at Ottawa to in inspector of customs at Winnipeg, as fol lows : "Van Home writes, extra time of men at Emerson and Gretna, is for benefit of St. Paul, Minneapolis & Manitoba railway, who should pay. You will notify proper authori ties that men will be withdrawn unless ar rangements made by them for payment, and then trains can only pass during business tu.urs and days." .Mr. Warren concludes his circular as fol- Nothing was done however until the 19th day of June, when the collector of customs it Emerson was notified that after the 30th in.-:, the orders of commissioner must be carried out. As the hours at which train 3 are run to and from Winnipeg are the ones most ap ed by those using the all-rail route, be ing substantially the same schedule as has been in force for the past three years, it has not been thought advisable to depart from it In consequence of the foregoing correspond ence. It is hoped passengers will suffar no serious inconvenience or delay at the inter national boupdary, and the- above informa tion is furnished that the traveling public may be advised that if delays do occur it is from causec beyond our line, and because there had been a departure from the custom ary arrangement hertofore in effect between her majesty's customs and the Canadian Pacific railway, and from the usual arrange ment made in the exchange of . traffic be tween Canada and the United States. - The St. Paul, Minneapolis & Manitoba Railway company have assumed and pay all the custom charges upon the American side of line provided for by the United States customs regulations, and cannot undertake to pay in tho territory where they have no line of railway; while tnc facts arc, that the expenses in this direction on the American side are probably olght or ten times as much for the handling of traffic as those exacted from the Canadian Pacific railway, by the customs authorities on the Canadian side of the line. C. 11. Warrex, General Passenger Agent. Minnesota, St. Croix and Wisconsin Itail- v^ad. , Articles of , consolidation betwee<£ tho St. Croix & Chlppewa Falls Railroad jtorapany, of Wlaconsin, and the St. Panl & St. Croix itullroad company, of Miuncsotiwwere filed with the secretary of state yesteraay as hav ing been, consumated June 28,1884. The onsolldation is recorded to have been com pleted by the consent of Joseph L. Colby, W. S. Fitch, Fredrick Abbott, Geo. W. Dun bar and Howard Morris, stockholders of tin- Bt. Croix and Chlppewa Falls railroad on the one part, and Howard Morris, Henry B. Wenzell, James G. Flanders, William 11. Lightner and Brigham Bliss holding all the stock of the. St. Paul, Bt. Croix Rnilroad company on the otaer part, and by Joseph L. Colby, president of the St. Croix & Chippewa Falls railroad, and Howard Morris, secretary on the one part, ami G. Henry B. Wenzcll, president, and llo\vard Morris, secretary, of the St. Paul & St Croix Railroad company on the other part. The St. Croix & Chlppewa. Falls railroad uns incorporated and is being built to run sighty miles from a convenient part on the Chippowa Falls A Western railway, near the city of Chippewa Falls, on the Chippewa river, in Wisconsin, westerly to the state's west boundary line in the county of St. Croix, to intersect with the St. Paul & St. Croix railroad, now being constructed from St. Paul junction at or near the city of St. Paul, it' the eastern boundary of the state. The St Paul A St. Croix railroad was inde penpexjlk and Is being built to run twenty four vnUcs from St Paul junction, near Lake Plmlen^pn the lino of tho St. Paul & Duluth railroad, ibence easterly to some convenient point on Hi' eastern boundary of Minnesota, in Washington county, to a connection with the St. Croix & Chippewa Falls railroad. The sciip of Use purchased road, to tho ' amount of $2, 500; 000, to complete and put it in running ordeA is in the hands of John A. Stewart and Edwin H. Albert, trustees, and that for the lat; l er road of $768,000 is also in the hands of - the same trustees for Its completion. , The two roads an.' thus consolidated to be managed by ono cOtppany under the name of the Minnesota, §t," Croix and Wiscousin Railroad company afld the principal place of •business is to be »*- Milwaukee, with the go l eral office at St- Paul.

"Colby as president, William S. ! Fitch, vice president; Howard Morris, secre tary, and Frederick Elcott, treasurer. The date of commencement of business is June »2S.ISS4, which is to continue pcrfectually. The capital stock is placed at $2,050,000, which is " divided Into 80,800 shares of $100 per vaiu» each. '"■:„ The consolidated company is§u.e to John A. Stewart. Edwin H. Elcott and Geo. Hoffman,* jointly all its securities to deliver the same to the holders in lien of, and in exchange and substitution for the securities for the two corporate parties of the consolidation. but these parties in so doing are not to incur any personal liability or responsibility in said ■substitution. The Canadian Taeifie. ..General .Manager Van Home, of the* . the Cauatlian Pacific, was in St. Paulyester fay and In an interview stated that that would be completed cast to Montreal by Uu> summer of ISSS. Work in the Rocky : mountains he said was going on in a satis toetury manner. . As to branch lines in Manitoba be said that President Stephens >iiwl to raise money in England for the con struction of the Manitoba Southwestern road, but failed owing to the want of confidence among the capitalists, created by the anti migration. With the present stringency in tho money market no railroad, he said, felt like projecting new lines. All railway stocks ,nre depressed and Canadian Pacific bu suffered less shrinkage than many other roads. • ; ,,.A -^» ..>,,j, ■.-.,< - ._•■ Being questioned regarding elevators, he ■ Mid that tho ': company was offering 'eYery. facility and inducement for the building of good elevators of not less than 10,000 bush els capacity, with steam appliances for clean ing, etc., but would not permit the erection of flat warehouses, believing i£ to be to the interest of farmers and the company to have wheat properly cleaned and graded before shipment. The onus of the customs difficul ty at Emerson and Gretna he believed would fall on the government. His company had decided to shut down on the system of rail way companies paying government officisls for doing customs work, and on that decis sion he intended to act. If trains arriving out of office hours and holidays must await the convenience of customs officers the com pany will submit. In reference to the com plaints about the unncecessary delay of all rail freight at St. Vincent, which is gener ally supposed to be part of the policy of the Canadian Pacific railroad to cut off the Mani toba road in favor of their own rail and water route, Mr. Van Home said that trains were run from Emerson to Winnipeg as often as the amount of business offered warranted, and that much of the delay was caused by the Manitoba road in transferring freight to the Canadian Pacific road. The Central Pacific Interest. New York, June 80. — C. P. Huntington said this morning the Central Pacific interest due July Ist is about §900,000, and the com pany has in the bank about three times this amount. In regard to the Colton suit he em phatically denies the story, and that there has been unwarranted disturbance of the Central Pacific sinking funds. The only Southern Pacific bonds belonging to the sinking fund sent to New York are those ac cumulated to aid the state loan of $1,500,000, which matures July Ist. These bonds were sent here to bo used for the pay of the state aid bonds as contemplated by the mortgage. The allegations made by Mrs. Mor ton iv her suit are mere spitework, intended to injure parties she is endeavoring to blackmail. She attacks the interest of parties with whom she has lit igation, hoping theseby to obtain something not her due. Tha counsel telegraphs that no application has been made for receiver for one of the railroad companies except for a comparatively small amount of bonds and 6tock that she claims on interest in, and all are subject to her litigation. The refusal of Jndge Temple to entertain such motion in the chambers may be taken as an indication that he will not allow the machinery of his court to be used for such dishonorable pur poses. Watt Street Itaittcay Tallc. Wall Street, New York, Jufe 30.— The officials of the Denver refuse to state whether the intereet on the company's bonds due to morrow will be paid or not. The Oregon Navigation and Northern Pacific negotia rions stands as follows : The Oregon Navi gation made a proposition to the Northern Pacific to lease its road, the latter to guaran tee the Oregon Navigation 6 per cent, on the stock for two years, 7 per cent, for three years and 8 per cent, thereafter. These terms are not yet agreed upon by the North ern Pacific directors, but will be considered this week. A circular was issued to the stock and bondholders of the California Southern rail road, stating that the call for a subscription of $200,000 to repair the road resulted in the receipt of only $114,500. The company would be compelled to either abandon or go on with the enterprise. In the latter event the stockholdars under California law will be held personally responsible for the payment of all sums due. Pennsylvania Railroad Suit. Reading, Pa., June 30. — The court thit afternoon arguments on the question of ap proving the bonds to indemnify the Reading for land taken from it in the construction of the Pennsylvania Schuylkill Valley. The Reading representatives claimed that the Berks county courts had no jurisdiction, as the road is now in the hands of receivers, and the United States circuit courts, which has now entire dominion over the road and its branches, must be appealed to. The ad vocate for the new road argued that the pres ent proceedings were commenced before the receivers were appointed, and hence the bonds could be approved by the Berks coun ty court without foreign interference. De cision reserved. Minneapolis, Minnehaha & Fort Snelling Railway, Articles of incorporation were filed with the secretary of state yesterday afternoon of the Minneapolis, Minnehaha & Fort Snelling railroad to commence at some point in Min neapolis run to Minnehaha and thence to some point near Fort Snelling, with telegraph and telephone lines in connection. The corporation dates July 8, 1884 to continue for 200 years, with a capital stock of $500, --0011 divided into 5,000 shares of $100 each, aud an indebtedness limited to its capital stock. The incorporates and first board of directors are Wm. McCrory, Judson N. Cross, Samuel E. Neiler, Frank 11. Carlton and Thomas J. Janncy. , ; » The Wabash and Central Trust Co. St. Louis, Mo., June 30.— 1n the United States circuit court to-day an order was made in the case of the Wabash railway against the Central Trust company granting leave to the receiver to defend certain suits and pay the necessary costs and fees. An order was also made in the same case of the the Central Trust company against the Texas & St, Louis railway giving leave to settle the lease with the Grant Locomotive works, and to issue certificates to the amount of $30,000 at 7 per cent, interest to said Grant Locomo tive works. A fi' Hail Notes. Tho Canadian Pacific has made an arrange ment with the Michigan Central for a dlrec all-rail route to Detroit, Chicago, and all points west, southwest and northwest. The new through line will be composed of the •eastern division of the Canadian Pacific rail^ way from Montreal to Smith's Falls, via Ot tawa and Ontario, and Quebec to Torontos thence by Credit Valley to St. Thomas, where connections will be made with the Michigan Central railway. The route is a trifle longer than by other competing roads, but tho com pany will remedy this defect by rnnnlng trains at a high rate of speed. It will be probably open for passenger traffic about the 15th prof. The Rock Island has established a daily dairy train to carry car-loads of dairy freight between Kansas City and Chicago.

CHAMBER OF COMMERCE. Communication from President Lowry of the Street Railway Company. Suggestions by Dr. Leasnre Regarding Night Signals of Street Obstructions. Our Letter Carriers Must Wait Till Next Census for Increase of Pay. The following communication from Mr. Thomas Lowry, president of the Street Car company, was presented to the board of di rectors of the chamber of commerce at its meeting yesterday morning, and without discussion was referred to the committee on slreets, roads and parks: June, 27th, 1884. Hon. John B. Sanborn, President Chamber of Commerce, St. Paul, Minn. Sir: On behalf of the St. Paul City Railway company I thank your honorable body for its action of the 23rd inst., in rela tion to the improvements already made and those contemplated by our company. No one deprecates more than myself the unpleas ant situation regarding Pleasant avenue. It r'seven rendered more so from the fact that, personally my motives have been miscon strued by many of my warmest friends. Your honored fellow citizens and President of Board of Public Works, Col. Farrington, in a conversation with me several months ago re ferred to a remonstrance from property owners on Pleasant avenue against tracks being laid on that 6treet. I replied that the company would re spect the wishes of the public. In planning the general system, it was afterwards sugges ted by many residents of your city that a line should be run on Pleasant avenue, and that eventually an easy grade would be made to gain access to the bluff on St. Anthony Hill. Believing it to be in accordance" with the wishes of a large majority of those inter ested, and an advantage to the city, we in cluded that avenue in our plan. It was at once announced and has since been discus sed before the Board of Public Works, and your City Council, at various timea. I refer to the above facts to show that the company had no intention to override the wishes of the public. It is essentially to the interest of the company for us to cater to public de man and I say now, as I have often stated to your Common Council, that the wish of any citizen will be respected, and if reason able grounds are presented, changes made in accordance therewith. We are endeavoring to give St. Paul a sys tem of street railway, of which your city may feel justly proud. To me, personally, the success or failure of the St. Paul City Rail way company is of great moment. I may he over enthusiastic, but I am willing to stake all on the growth and prosperity of this great northwest. Our present receipts do not jus tify the expenditure. As an offset - for the deficiency we must rely on our charter, but when such an eminent lawyer as your es teemed fellow citizen, Hon John M. Gilman, announces to the world, through the public press that we have no franchises, rights or privileges, and your City Council attempts to revoke a part of our charter, it is time for us to pause and ascertain where we stand, and what the rights of the company are. We are willing to risk the fu tnre growth of St. Paul and make the nec essary expenditures to complete the system as laid out, but we cannot remain in uncer tainty as to our rights. We will carry out in good faith all agreements made with the city, and do more than even the most exacting could reasonably suggest, but we demand in return good faith, common honesty, and fair treatment at the hands of your city gov ernment. We can not submit quietly to proceedings calculated to injure our credit and depreciate our securities. If our charter is worthless, and a disposition is shown to accept our expenditures without giving value received, we will gracefully submit, and utilize to the best advantage what we already have, if we are allowed to keep it. Wa find no fault and have no criticisms to tuake as to the action of your city government, or of any individual. We accept the situation and patiently await the decision of the court. Again thanking your honorable body, and with renewed- assurances of your intentions to faithfully serve your city, I remain, with respect, Thomas Lowuy, President. At the conclusion of the reading of the letter Mr. Gilman stated that the writer made a mistake when he stated that he, (Gilman) had expressed an opinion in regard to the charter of the company. The writer was also mistaken when he said the city council had sought to revoke the chartered rights of the company. The council has not attempted to do anything of the kind. THE LETTER CARRIER. A letter was read from Mr. Washburn in regard to the salary of letter car riers, and saying that the population of a town could not be presumed from the names of a direc tory, but must be shown from a census and that alone will answer the purpose. i THE CONDITION OF OUR STREETS. The following letter was read and referred to the committee on streets: St. Paul, Minn., June 25, 1884; General J. B. Sanborn, President of the Chamber of Commerce: Dear Sir — 1 beg to respectfully represent that the streets of this city have been, are now, and must for a long time continue to be obstructed at many points pending the construction of sewers, laying water pipes, and constructing lines of street railways, and that during the night persons driving in car riages, hacks or burgles are liable to meet with grave accidents, owing to the danger points being only marked by an ordinary lantern carrying white light. A white light means nothing but a light, and at the distance of a block may seem like an ordinary street lamp,or a lantern in some one's hand, or a carriage lamp, or any other ordinary light, and gives no warning of dan ger. " , On the contrary, a red light is always a danger signal, and should be placed at every point of danger during the night, whether those danger points are created by the city authorities, or by private individuals, and corporations, and where no "thoroughfare" exists for vehicles, two lights should be placed side by side, to indicate to persons a block distant that they cannot pass that point, thus saving the trouble of reaching the point, only to incurQ the danger of turn ing around in the darknes3, to retrace their way. A red light to indicate danger, and two red lights, or a red and white light side, by side, to indicate "no thoroughfare," would save those whose duty or pleasures make it necessary to drive during the night j a great deal of inconvenience and possibly danger. I refrain from all argument, leaving the good sense of the authorities to see the pro priety of making so slight and inexpensive a change in the present very unsatisfactory order of things relating to danger signals during the night. Very respectfully, your most obedient servant, DAXrEL LEA9CRE. QUITE PERTINENT. The following, offered by M. McClung, was adopted : Resolved, That our representatives in con gress are respectfully requested to make spe cial efforts to prevent the city of St. Paul from being ignored in the river and harbor bill now pending in congress, and that the president of the chamber telegraph a brief memorial asking a continuance of the ».p --propaiation for improving the harbor of St. Paul. . _ MISCEIXAITEOrS. Mr. D. R. Noyes, from the special commit tee appointed to confer with the railroad people in regard to the rebuilding of the 1 Union depot, reported what the railroad people had determined to do, which has al ready been published in these columns, and recommended . that, under all the cir- j cumstances, it would be be best to acquiesce in the determination of the railroad author ities. The resolution of Dr. Day, about not pay- | ing streets till water and gas pipes and sew ers have been pat in, was referred to the committee on streets. The board recommended the Minnesota ! delegates in congress to favor the Clnnibar ! railroad through the Yellowstone park. Madrid, June 80.— Mini JterlFoster has returned.

Reunion of the First Regiment Minne sota Volunteers. , ; [The following circular has been sent to all surviving members o.^° v and the GLOBE.publishes it as an mentto the organization to attend the re Un Th n eLt annual reunion of comrade*;* the old First Minnesota will be he d ,*t Mm neapolis July 22, 1804 Me. = of regi_ ment will rendezvous at Harsison , ncr Washington and Nicollet avenues, at 11 o'clock a. m on that day, and will^yer, jwon thereafter go in a body by the motor line to theLyndalo hotel, Lake Calhoun, where a banquet will be given the members£jd^in vited guests." Afierthe banquet the business meeting of the association will take place at the Lyndale hotel. ■■, . ■ .. ■' , ■ The Old First as a body . has been invited to join in the parade of the Grand Army of the Republic, which takes place at 10 clock on the morning of July 23, and all members of the regiment who attend the reunion will be expected to join the parade. For this reason I earnestly request all comrades to appear in blue or dark clothes and black hats, if practicable, so that we may present an ap pearance worthy of our record and fame. This, however, is not imparative, and if you cannot appear in blue or dark clothes, do not imagine you will be the less welcome. Probably 30,000 men of the G. A. R. from! all parts of the country will be gathered in Minneapolis at their grand 5 encampment at the time of our reunion. To accommodate this great body of men will tax the utmost capacity of our hotels, boarding houses and private homes.. We expect to be able to secure camp lodgings for the members of our regiment, and will do the very best we can for all; but it is doubtful if suitable ac t commodations for ladies can be had at that time. The wives and widows of our com rades will be welcomed at our banqet, and for such as come we will do the best we can, but I feel that it is but justice to state the facts. I would advise every comrade to bring with him a pair of blankets, as the probabilities are that many of our members will have to camp. RAILROAD FARE. Half fare, or one fare for the round trip, j has been granted by the several railroads running into Minneapolis. To secure this reduced rate, present this circular and also your discharge paper (if you can) to the ticket agent at your station, and buy a round trip ticket to Minneapolis and return. Our re-union will undoubtedly be the larg est we have ever bad, and we earnestly de sire the presence of every surviving member of the Old First. We will do all we can to make this reunion enjoyable. A number of the prominent men of the state will be in vited to be with us. I not only earnestly request you to come, but also to see that ev ery comrade in '■ your neighborhood comes also, i The grand parade of the Grand Army of the Republic will add interest to the occa sion, and will be worth going hundreds of miles to see. Probably 30,000 men will be in line. \ If you dear of any member of the First who , has not received notice, please notify him at once, and also send his name and post-office address to me. ; v :\ H.

Animal Reports of the Officers of the Cemetery Association- The Oakland Cemetery association held its annual meeting yesterday morning in the chamber of commerce rooms. Dr. Day called the meeting to order, and General Bishop was made chairman while Richard Marvin acted as secretary. THE PRESIDENT'S ASU TIUJSTEE3 REPORT. The following report by Gen. Sg)ley, presi dent of tyie asacr.udtjoii. was read and accept ed: ' The president and trustees of the Oakland cemetery association respectfully submit their report to the lot owners for the fiscal year ending May 41, ISS4, as follows: In addition to tile improvements to' the groves which have been prosecuted on a more extensive scaie than in any other prev ious year involvii.u; a correspondingly greater outlay, the beautiful mortuary chapel which has been for two yean in process of erection has been completed and fully paid for. The funeral ceremonies are now con ducted within it and mourners and other friends of deceased persons are saved from the dangers and discomfort of attendance upon interments in the open air, in inclem ent weather. Many fine monuments have been erected by individual lot owners dur ing the year, and Oakland cemetery is fast becoming one of the most interesting and attractive of the resting places of the dead. The work on the chap<jl received the con stant and diligent suporvisiou of the building committee, and to the architect, Mr. Bass ford, much credit is due for the inteligent and conscientious manner with which he performed the duties devolved upon him. The treasurer's report will show that finan cially the past year ha 3 been the most suc cessful of any in the history of the associa tion. The cost of the mortuary, chapel was nearlj $25,000, and the association has now in cash and interest bearing bon Is, about $30,000. The assets are now nearlf $11,000 in excess of those for the year endipg May 31, 1883. The association is tq be congratulated upon the success which has attended its operations and upon the prospects of still greater prosperity. Respectfully submitted, 11. H. Sibley, President.

Another shipment of thirty-two young In dians was made last week from the Brule agency to the Indian school at Hampton, Va. There were three squaws in the batch. The county lines between Richland and Roberts connties are run so loosely that each county claims a district of three miles, and the assessors of both are making up tax lists. E. L.

Miss Lizzie Jones is one of the bonanza farmers near Opswich. She has a hajf sec tion and expects to harvest 2,000 bushels of wheat. She is a pioneer dating back nearly two years. Bets are up at Opswieh ttat a man will have an interest in her claim with in a year. Young ladies with half sections rarely remain single long. A good deal of interest Is felt to see which side will capture the new governor. He is reported to be a thorough Bohemian with all the weaknesses of the order, including a fluent appetite, and if Alex. McKenzle gets in his work in time there need be no appre hension on the part of Bismarck. Alex, will go to Chicago to his party convention, of course. Col. Donan has returned from the moun tains of Norte Carolina full of enthusiasm for that section. There is a large emigration there, much of it from the north. lowa has sent forty families recently. The Col. is at work on that 4th of July eagle he is to fly at Aberdeen. It will be the greatest effort of "his life, and quite different from any of his former efforts. The bird will ad astra. Casselton had four candidates for the county and legislative tickets, and as it was believed that ono was all the place could se cure, a caucus was held on Sunday, with Frank Spear chairman, and Major Pollock secretary, at which, after a thorough canvass, it was decided to present A. H. Burke as the only name from tjiat place. He stands an excellent chance of being nominated for treasurer, and is a man in whom is no guile. On his appointment of governor of Dakota the president has gone outside of the terri tory to show his contempt for the Chicago convention, and gone outside the party to show his feeling toward the man who laid him out. But he selected a bright, clever newspaper man, who has probably never visited Dakota and will need guide books to find the capital. His paper has never taken any interest in north Dakota and hardly more in the south. Fargo and Bismarck indignantly reject the imputation of the Jamestown Alert that they have citizens of this character: "Quite a number of females of reputed easy virtue, who belong in Fargo and Bismarck, were, brought before Judire Huyward yesterday morning on the charge of being bad citizens. They were severally and collectively given their choice between emigrating within twenty-four hours, standard time, or going to jail" fifteen days calendar time." The special ambition of those who get up Fourth of July celebrations in Dakota towns this season is to secure Indians to participate. Mitchell will have White Ghost, chief of the Yankton Sioux, and a large part of this this tribe. They will give war and other dances, races, etc., and White Gho6t has promised to make a speech. His dusky but bright eyed daughter and heiress, Evanpe liue White Ghost, will be there to flirt with the pale face gallants. Since Col. Plummer wa.9 mistaken for Bob Ingersoll in Chicago, he is persuading himself that about the only difference be tween them is in reputation, and as their re ligions views are similar, the colonel is pre paring a theological effort that he thinks will put him close up to Bob in popular view and estimation. He is looking up ' : thc mis takes" of St. Paul and practicing the gait and sonorosity of the big acmostic. His dress and hirsute arrangements are strictly Ingrereollist. Capt. Barber, late of the HilUboro paper, is trying to find the opening believed to exist at Grand Forks for a Democratic paper. The mayor and many of the prominent bu3ine«3 men are Democrats, and a good paper of Democratic politics ought to command a fine patronage. The Heatid, the Republican, is a spirited, able journal, and there is room for another first-class paper. There is no room, however, for any more flabby wisha wasby affais. There Is no doubt that President Arthur had intended to appoint Col. Donan govern or of Dakota, as he gave such assurance to Father Stephen, but the chance to reward an earnest worker for his noiniv:->iion at Chicago and show his sympathy with tl» • kickers at B2aine, was too ranch for him. Ybe Blame men in Dakota are astonished and indignant that the president should so aigna iy endorse one of the most vehement bolter 3, vho writes some of the bitterest things <.' ZT«* ne found anywhere. The appointm< nt ha.' an air of defiance of the party and *'U '-c likely to stir up a motion in the camp. Pierce is a special friend of Col. Donan. The Bismarck Tribune has had an advance view of the literary efforts being concocted by the gentleman and says: The Tribune would not excite the curiosity of the people of the territory too much, but it feels justi fied in saying that when Col. Plummer has completed his arrangements, aud his deep laid scheme shall have become known, the great territory will shake from the blue gras.9 regions of the south to the strawberry hiils of the north, in _ a manner never "known before." As an illustration of the operation of the land laws, which are designed to secure tho settlement of the country, out of 136 claims taken in one township in Walsh county, forty-two have been proved up on and the parties have gone back east or to secure land further west, leaving these unoccupied and held for speculation. There are also eight een tree claims, making nearly one half the claims not occupied. It is not easy to see how claims held in this way are of any ad vantage to the country or government. A Dandjf Indian Scholar. This incident, related by the Mandan Pio neer, has a variety of morals and suggestions which the reader can extract at leisure: "Several days ago a young Sioux, rigged out in all the variegated paraphernalia of an In dian dude, chanced into the office of several business men on Main street. The young Sioux was a fine specimen of his race, and was the beau ideal of the belles of his tribe. He wore a toga of many colors, pantaloons with deep and delicately wrought fringe extending along the outer seams, an ornate buckskin jacket, an elaborate necklace trimmed with trinkets and shells, artistic moccasins covered with fantastic bead work, earrings and finger rings of aesthetic design, armlets and brace lets which evinced great skill in workman ship. His features were intelligent aud at tractive, and his long, coarse, black hair hung carelessly over his shoulders, contrast ing favorably with the rich colors of his gar ments. He was, as a whole, a rare sight in the day of degenerate and poverty stricken Indians. The gentlemen in the office where he called set about commenting upon the make-up of the Indian, indulging in light and flippant remarks on his appearance, such as "Isn't he a daisy?" "He's a perfect dandy!" "He would cast Oscar Wilde in the shade as an aesthete." "He mustbe a masher." "He seems to be a good deal more ornamental than useful," etc., etc., ad injhdtum. After the levity ceased the young Sioux, who all the while was as stoic as a Grecian philosopher, picked up a newspaper and remarked In good Eng lish, "May I have this i" Imagine the sur prise of the gentlemen who had been making the Indian the target of their ridicule. They had sold themselves, bag and baggage. Of course they told him he could have the paper. Upon inquiry it was found that the Sioux had been educated at a government school at Ft. Berthold and could both speak and write English. He seemed to enjoy the joke, how ever, and left his authoarraphy written in a clear round hand as a sample of his chiro graphy." Horse Thieve*. The Casselton Jiejxrrter relates this: "On Friday, Week before last, a couple of young men with the air and swagger of western cow boys came to Casselton, each riding a pony which they offered for sale, but not finding immediate purchasers they remained over night and the following day our livery men, A. E. Wood and H. Tree, became the innocent purchasers of the animals for the sums of §40 and §45 respectively. After dis posing of the ponies the alleged cow boys went to Fargo where they met a companion who had also disposed of a pony a^James town. The three had a hilarious time on the proceeds of their sales, quarreled, and were arrested, one on the charge of carrying- concealed weapons, and the others on the charge| of vagrancy, but as they had a little loose change about them they were released from custody and disappeared. In the meantime the "concealed weapon" individual had '"squealed" on his companions aud stated that the ponies whjch they had sold were stolen, which statement was confirmed by the appearance in Casselton on Monday last of Deputy Sherili Barnes, fro^i Chamberlain, Brule county, l>. T., armed with proper writs, and took possession of the ponies here, after which he proceeded to Jamestown to recover the auimr' sold there. One of the pony thieves, it b -ems, is also wanted in the Black Hills for murder. Barnes stated that horse stealing is becoming alarmingly frequent in tne vicinity of Chamberlain, and vigilant committees aro being formed to rid that section of the miscreants. New Variety of Wheat. This account of a new variety of wheat will interest many readers of the Globe. The Barnes Record says: "Baillio & Niel son, of Stewart-town, northwest of Valley City, have a field of wheat which in point of growth, color and thickness, is pronounced by all who have soen it to be the best in Barnes'county. These gentlemen procured the seed wheat last fall from the celebrated Souris district, Bouthwcst of Brandon, in Manitoba. These gentlemen bought fifty bushels at a cost cM over $3 a bushel. The wheat has a big record. Wrn. Hartncy, on whose farm it was grown, had 140 acres of wheat, the yield was 4,293 bushels, or 30>£ bushels to the acre. The wheat was exhibited at the Manitoba Provincial fair, held at Portage la Prairie last fall, and was awarded the Hud son Bay company's special prize of $100 for the be6t twenty-five bushels of Red Fyfe wheat grown in Manitoba, also diploma given by the board of agriculture. The wheat also commanded first prize for the best* ten , five and two bushel samples exhibited, carrying off every first prize awarded for Red Fyfe wheat. Baiilie & Nielson have thirty-eight and one-fourth acres of this celebrated wheat in crop and aro justly proud of its excellent stand, the prospects being good for a yield of thirty-five to forty bushels to the acre. Our farmep friends should not fail to inspect this field of wheat, it stands over thirty inches high, arid the field is a beautiful sight." Sound and tiennibV'. Visitors to Dakota who talk like this, as reported by the Gary Lit<r State, slft/w good sense and accurate judgment, as all good Dakotans cheerfully admit: "Mr. E. Scan nell, of Owatonna, Minn., brother of OUT townsman W. 11., arrived iv town Just Fri day and visited his brother a few days. Mr. Scannell says that durin^the past sixty days he has traveled through Some thirteen states and territories, and that Dakota seems to take the lead of all, in regard to fine scenery anp delightful atmosphere. Thus they all say. It make no difference in what direc tion or tbrouirh what states they travel. When their eyes behold the fascinating scenery and they breath the fresh invigorat ing air, ther* is no doubt but that their ver dict will be in favor of Dakqla." She Wanted That 08^000. The Bismarck To'Jjumha thi.s illustration of the grit and enterprise of Dakota ladies — and which be paralleled in a buiallcr way at most any of the new towns: "The ininer3 flocking into the new Corar d'Aleuo subscribed a purse of gold dust to be given to the first child born in the camp. A corre spondent of the New York World tells what became of it as follows: The 'Kid's fund' had juht reached the round sum of £" when it was gobblf-d up by an enterprising youngster of Eagle City, whose mother, m Dakota wife, had walked thirty-five n from the railway through enow from three to "ten feet defp a few days previous to his birth. Ifjr husband was absent at the time — a freffbt hand on the Northern Pacific railroad — and upon his return to his humble cabin n<:ar the line of the road, he discovered that his spouse was missing. Making a few Inquiries be learned of her departure for the mines. He lost no time in following her thither, where, up a his arrival, in addition to a fine, bouncing boy. ttte mother presented him with a rather bulky pouch containing 95,000 in dust and nuggets. This boy was aodonbt edly born with a gold spoon in his mouth. The father has given up railroading, taken to mining, and it is reported that he has struck it rich near the head of Beaver gulch, a tributary of Pritchard." Going Hack io the States. The party described by the Marion SentinJ, in the following, was a fair representative of a small class that come 3to Dakota from the malarial swamps of Indiana and Illinois, and goes back in disgust: "A typical sample of the far west traveling outfit passed through town a few dayr ago. The vehicle was a fair representative of the ingenuity and con structiveness of a north Dakota granger. It moved upon two wheels and resembled ru ancient war chariot with some modern (1) improvements. Tho propelling force wns furnished by an equine whose appearance indicated that he might have figured quite largely during the stormy days of Putnam iv addition to the demoralizing influence of life in the far west since that time. Near the center of equilibrium of the vehicle a seat was fastened, upon which sat the guiding feature of the outfit. We looked and saw that time had ) played an important part there also, and as he passed by he looked this way and that way in expectancy of seeing a gloom cast o'er the crowd at the idea of losing such a worthy rep resentative of the granger family from Da kota's soil, but he saw none. Ho was evi dently rejoicing though at the prospect of leaving the land of the red man far in tha rear, a*:d the 'willow' played a lively tune . upon the anatomy of the aforesa'.id equine while he rolled away." BLAINE RATIFICATIOiN. A Very Tame Affair for Republican* Dodge County. [Special Correspondence of tho Globe] _ Kassoh, June 23. — Last night occured the* "grand ratification meeting" of the Blame an d Logan club, of this place. The thing had been profusely advertised for the las* two weeks by the local papers of the count] and the names of Geo. B. Edgerton, Esq., and Dr. H. T. Turner had been paraded u.& to give "grand and eloquent" addresses on the occasion. At about half past seven our new ban J paraded in front of Town hall and dlscour?r<l some very eood music which, being their first public eilort drew quite a crowd of our citizens who relished thu treat and was high ly creditable to the boys. After the music l>y the band we adjourned to the hall where the club was to meet and where by actual count just forty-e ight men and boys had gathered before us, but which was swelled before the meeting closed to about sixty people. The meeting was called to order by Tom Lindley, Esq., president of the club, who announced reading of the minutes of thu last meeting by tho secretary, A. E. Ander son, and then called for the report of the committee on programme, which reported, "Music by the band," which they had had, and addresses by G. B. Edgerton and Dr. Turner. Mr. Edgerton's name "being llrst on the docket" was called, and feeling the great weight of responsibility resting upon him he advanced gravely to tho 6ide of the platform where he took position, and with his "Priuca Albert" closely buttoned, his left behind ■ him, while his right was thrust across his breast between the buttons of his coat (tho well known attitude of his lather Gen'l Edgcrton) he seemed to wish to bay "I am father," but it was painfully evident to those present that father was in Dakota. lie com menced his address by an eulogy of the ad ministration of President Arthur "who, by his wise and patriotic course had poured oil , upon the troubled water 3 and allayed party strife and should have received a unani mous nomination at Chicago as an endorse ment." "With this nomination" declared the speaker "and the son of the martyred president in the second place there could be no possibility of a defeat" leaving In tha minds c£W« hearers a ieeurig"' that" in Mr. Edgerton's opinion there was a great prob ability that the "Plumed Knight" would be ! defeated. "Touching very briefly upon the tariff," Mr. Edgorton declared very gravely that "There were two hundred and forty millions of revenue collected by the government, one hundred and thirty millions of which was received from the tariff, and the balance, one hundrod and ten millions, was received from internal revenue, almost all of which was received from the tax on whisky and tobacco. So," emphatically declared the speaker, "a man needn't pay anything un less he had a mind 'to." Well, this was refreshing news, and only shows how well posted tho speaker was upon subjects ho was trying to talk about, the veriest school boy knowing better, and so all voted. Mr. Edgerton next animadverted upon the fealty of the Democratic party for tin; constitution, aud thought to have demolished the whlole party by the old and oft-repeated lleubican story of Gen. McClullan and tin captured cows, alleging the cows could not be cared for because McClellan, a Democrat, could find nothing in the constitution to show him what to do with them. • < What a pity Mr. Edgerton could not have been thsre as "instinct" would have taught him his duty and then; would have been no need of telegrams to the president for instruc tions, an.l we are heartily glad that Repub licans give testimony that the constitution with Democrats is th" supreme law and/, guide, while admitting that with themselves it is of no binding force, to be Ignored en tirely if interfering with their own . selfish schemes. Mr. Edgerton's effort lasted just eighteen minutes, in which tim • be ramified the wholo field of politics, annihilated the Democratic party, and grew the coutry to immense di mensions under Republican rule, but not a word as to the Mulligan fatten, Santa Fe railroad and kindred subjects; but declared that Blame being the candidate of toe Be* publican party he should vote for Mm, "tat too" marks and all, though he mlgiit proba bly be defeated. Dr. 11. T. Turner being "next on the docket," was called and commenced with the remark that ho hardly knew what to say us his bump of combativencss was large and he could see nothing to fight. He however thought he saw something* and started out with, "About the year 1430 African slavery was introduced into the United States as a Democratic measure," and proceeded as a good Republican to exterminate it, which ha did, as I don't think slavery exists In the Union to-day. The doctor, too, wished to touch on the tariff issue also, and declared the reduction of its onerous burdens a republican measure notwithstanding the whole party vote except three was against even considering a meas ure of relief, after which he declared him self in favor of absolute free trade and be lieved the Republicans of the west would force its adoption. ' About this time, he said, he thought he spied a "tarnal" Democrat in the room, which disturbed his bump of #ombss*venesf and he declared: "Oh yes; we all know the Democrats caused a rebellion :" and he im mediately proceeded to put it down, but failed to say one of his leaders raised '■<■ regi ment of his neighbors for the southern con federacy, and after a part of It had gone across the line he deserted them because of a higher commission in the Union service. The doctor spoke just fifteen minutes, and bis speech' was voted thinner than his pills (he is a Homeopathist), but like bis creed "if it don't do any good it won't do any hurt," and as he has abolished slavery and put down the rebellion he ought to be congratu lated. lie, too, should vote for the "tattoo." C Mr. McLaughlin of Mantorville was called on, and succeeded in arousing a little en thusiasm else the whole thing would have been voted a funeral. . Mr. MeLauifblin thought that on the tariff they should think just as the party leaders did. Mr. Robert Taylor being called upon de clared himself in favor of 'Harm for reve nue" a good Democrotlc doctrine. Mr. Peck "came only as a listener" and Z. B. Page "never made a speech." The Republicans are a. good deal disheart ened, several having declared the nomina tion "a very injudicious one" and others declare that, there is no prospect , of Blame carrying /New York and therefore their ca»a Isbopelet3. .', ■' f"
