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
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ties that men will be withdrawn unless ar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.

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

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.

Articles of incorporation were filed with

the Minneapolis, Minnehaha & Fort Snelling
railroad to commence at some point in Min
neapolis run to Minnehaha and thence to

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

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.

Communication from President Lowry
of the Street Railway
Suggestions by Dr. Leasnre Regarding
Night Signals of Street
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.
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 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
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,
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. . _

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.
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. ;

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 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,

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.

Since Col. Plummer wa.9 mistaken for
Bob Ingersoll in Chicago, he is persuading
himself that about the only difference be

put him close up to Bob in popular view and
estimation. He is looking up ' : thc mis

Capt. Barber, late of the HilUboro paper,
is trying to find the opening believed to exist
at Grand Forks for a Democratic paper. The

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

There Is no doubt that President Arthur

Father Stephen, but the chance to reward an

The Bismarck Tribune has had an advance

forty-two have been proved up on and the

further west, leaving these unoccupied and
held for speculation. There are also eight
een tree claims, making nearly one half the

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
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."

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

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

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."
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.
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 !
"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
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
