T/te Union I'ncific and Hurlinqton Anxious
to Join Hands to Meet the. Threat
ened Compet it toil of The Xorth -
The Northwestern having requested of its
eastern connections as well as the Union
Pacific its western connections that it will
not permit any of its business consigned to
Western Trunk Line association or Califor-
Qia fast freight line to be diverted over any
other lines than its own will compel the
Union Pacific to disclose its position at once
to the tripartite complications. The eastern
connections of the Northwestern will of
course Comply with the request of the latter,
but what the Union Pacific will do has not
yet transpired, if it complies with the re
quest of the Northwestern and refuses to di
vert the latter's business as requested by the
Western Trunk Line association, it would be
conclusive proof that it is not in harmony
with the Rock Island and Milwaukee & St.
Paul, and will not aid them in carrying out
the original tripartite agreement. If it takes
this position, then the Rock Island and Mil
waukee &. St. Paul will have no other alterna
tive than to sue it for breach of contract. If
it does not comply with the Northwestern 's
request and desides to take sides with its or
iginal allies — the Rock Island and the Mil
waukee & St. Paul— then the Northwestern
wilL have to take legal action again6t it in
Drder to find out whether it can
lawfully divert freight from one road to
mother, or discriminate in favor of one
road against another. In either event the
Union Pacific will have a hard road to travel.
J: is the general opinion that the Union Pa
ciflc would prefer to get out of the tripartite
combination altogether, and i 6 anxious to
form an offensive and defensive treaty with
the Burlington on all business west from the
Missouri river. It is Btated that all arrange
m< nt- lor such ii treaty have been perfected,
but cannot be carried out so long as the tri
partite complications arc unsettled. The
Union Pacific and Burlington are the more
an xious to join hands on account of the po
sition lately taken by the Chicago & North
western. Bui little doubt is expressed that
this road really means to at once extend its
Sioux City A: Pai ifie road through Wyoming
to a connection with the Central Pacific and
sii'l probably through to the Pacific coast
As the Northwestern is controlled by Vau
ierbllt there can be no doubt as to its ability
to carry out such a project. With such a
line the Northwestern would prove a most
formidable competitor against all the other
Pacific r. .r.ils. Then: are some, however,
who do not believe that the Northwestern
seriously contemplates tnfe building of such
line, though they consider it probable that
an extension may be made through Wyom
ing, but no further. In either event, how
ever, the Northwestern would be able to
greatly injure the. Union Pacific and the Bur
lington, and it is therefore necessary that
those Kinds should join hands in an offensive
and defensive treaty to be prepared to meet
tbi competition of the Northwestern when it
into the field.

i The conypg exhibition of The ...World's
Industrial and Cotton Centennial Exhibi
tion," which opens at New Orleans, Decem
ber Ist, ISS4, and closes May 81st,, 1885,
will, without doubt, eclipse anything of the
kind which has occurred in the history of the
world. . ,■ -■:' • ••'
' It will be inaugurated and conducted by
the United States of America, the National j
Cotton Planters association, and the city of
New Orleans. The management of this
great exposition, which is to continue for a
period of six months, is vested in the hands
of a body of thirteen commissioners ap
pointed by the president of the United States.
Ample funds have been applied by con
gress and by nearly all of the states to meet
the expenses of this greatest of all exposi
tions, and tho city of New Orleans has not
only donated the use of its magnificent park,
but, as a city and by her individual business
men and firms, they have opened their
purses and do not propose to have any thing
necessary to. the success of the. world's fair
lacking. The buildings, which are built ex
pressly for the occasion,, are on a scale of
elegance and beauty never before seen, and
will cost a vast sum of money. / . .
The department which will most interest
Minnesota will be the "Dairy Exhibits." Of
this Mr. C. E. Marvin, of Rochester, has
been appointed superintendent, and Minne
sota will thereby be entitled to considerable
distinction.. The exhibits of dairy products
will be made in a crystal palace composed
entirely of glass and iron, the interior of
which will be constructed upon principles of
thorough refrigeration. The New Orleans
Refrigerator company offer free storage for
all perishable articles forwarded, and all such
exhibits will be sent free of cost to exhibitors
in refrigerator cars.
Upon the grounds tin* winter will be found
every • kind of tropical fruit growing and
ripening, and the city will all winter be a
perfect bower of beauty. Arrangements for
entertaining the vast mass of humanity who
will visit them are being made by the peo
ple of New Orleans. Railroad fare will be
one cent per mile, which will make a round
trip ticket from St. Paul cost about $30. .
. The following circular, soon to be issued
by General Superintendent Marvin, a proof
slip of 'which is furnished the Globe, will be
read with interest:

sth to Jan. 25th, during which time the
awards will be made. Exhibits not compet
ing for prizes will be received at any time
during the exposition, and cold storage
furnished free of charge, and every possible
facility offered for marketing the same.
The importance of a large exhibit on the
part of dairymen is manifest from the fact
that the production of dairy products in the
middle and western states has increased in
the past ten j years from , two
to three hundred per '. cent. "and
the possibilities of this section in dairy pro
ducts is yet in its. very infancy, and can
only reach the minimum of its possibilities
by "extemiir.cjtlie markets for those products. 1
There will Ik an unquestioned large attend
ance from the southern states, Mexico, Cen
tral and South America, representing a pop
ulation of *>5,000,0<J0 of people, not them
selves producer? of, dairy products, and to a
large extent unfamiliar with the dairy pro
ducts of the dairy producing sections of the
world. Let not dairymen fail to furnish an
exhibit in keeping with the gVeat industry
they represesent at this, the greatest of all
.Correspondence is especially invited from
stat* superintendents of dairy and produce
exchanges, and all others interested in dairy
products, cither as - producers or merchants.

lam quite certain that at least $30,000
more will be collected before the papers are
filed in court, which I believe would place
the city in position to promptly meet all pay
ments to the contractor as the work pro
ercsses this season.
The work of preparing the application for.
judgment against the delinquents is now
underway. With an assessment of such
magnitude as this, involving a vast amount
of labor which must be carefully done, it will
take some time, but will be pushed without
delay, and carried out as soon as possible.

Three suits were yesterday filed in the dis
trict court bynames S. Dunn and family
against the Burlington, Cedar Rapids "<fc
Northern Railway company for damages ag
gregating >fi5,000. It appears that 1 on, the
evening of Feb. 11, 18S4, James S. Dunn
purchased tickets for his wife, Annie F.
Dunn, and son, Charles L. Dunn, aged eight
years, from Cedar Rapids to Minneapolis.
During the night of Feb. 12. the train, which
was conveying them, left ■ the track near
Albert Lea, the car in which the wife ' and
son were located being burned,- the' former
being seriously but not permanently Injured,'
while the latter was burned and maimed so.
that he is blind, and will never be able to
perform any sort of manual labor. The
father asks for $5,000 damages' to : aim from
the prospective services of his son; the wife j
wants $10,000 for the injuries she sustained,
and the eon, through his tmardian. Ellis i
Stone Gorman, demands $50,000.
tfr. J. H. Bryant, met with a serious acci
dent a day or two ago while at White Bear,
i . which will incapacitate him for business for
a time. The cause of the accident was -an
'innocent little revolver that the doctor was
| cleaning up and putting into res pec table
shape. While thus engaged he attempted to
hold the bullet in by placing the thumb and •
forefinger of his right hand over the muz
! ale. The impolite and unthankful revolver
not liking this, spoke up like a little man,

riving from St. Paul at 10:50 a. m. and 3 p.
m. On week days a new evening train will
be put on, leaviug Stillwater at 8:45, and a
train will arrive from St. Paul at 7 :10. The
time also of departure of several ot the trains
has been changed a little.. The train that
formerly left at 8:37 a. in. starts at 8:35,
two minutes earlier; the 4:15 p. in. train
will leave at 4 :38, and the 5: 20 train at 5 :10.
The North Wisconsin that formerly left at
8:35 will now leave at 8:50. The evening
train leaving Stillwater at 8:45 will be a

In. ..i ess to be transacted in the city. The
Omaha road has done a deserving act, which
will be appreciated by the people.

What might have beeu a fatal accident oo
curred at Lake De Montrevillc yesterday
morning. It appears that Geo. Toriuus nnd
David Cannon, two of the campers from this
city, were out shooting at a mark, when Tor
inus' guv accidentally discharged, the con
tents lodging in his hand and cheek. Dr.
Pratt, of this city, was camping at the lake
and happened to be close at hand, when he
gave him all the aid possible. He sent Can
non to this city for surgical instruments and
appliances, when Dr. T. C. Clark went with
all imste to the scene of the accident, Dr.
Millard being away from home. Mr. John
McKusick aud Mrs. Torinus also went to the
Latek — It appears that Torrinus Mas sit
ting ou the top of a loose post, with the palm
of his left hand over the muzzle of his shot
gun, and in rising the post fell over,strlkiug
the lock, the charge passed through his hand
and through the outside of his left cheek,
laying the bone bare. Dr. Pratt had dressed
the wound before Dr. Clark arrived, 4nd
then his hand was attended too. He did not
appear to mind his wound in the least, and
rode home in the carriage. Although his
injuries are severe they are not dangerous.
He will have the best of care.
To the Editor of the Giouu :
I saw an account in your paper about the
CQUgresqlpnal investigating committee's pro
i cecdingfl. at Dayton, Ohio. As I was once
| unfortuuate enough to be forced into either
going there or to a county poorhouse, I
went, aud to my surprise a better place I had
never seen, and although those places have
their drawbacks, I hope for the benefit of
those at the homes now, and those that may
hereafter become iuinateß, that the commit
tee will so amend the laws that complaint
will hereafter be impossible. There is but
one way clear to me how to do it, and that is
the homes to be managed entirely hy citizen
employes, no inmate to have any authority
over another inmate, no pay for labor done
by inmates, aud any one that hns ever been
an inmate not to be employed or considered
as a citizen by the home. All the trouble I
saw while there Originated among the in
mates themselves, and by those that legally
have no claim upon the government for sup
port, their disability not having been re
ceived in the service, but were received in
different state prisons, while serving time
for crimes committed by them. There are
three classes of inmates at the homes, the
big pensioner, the small pensioner and the
non-pensioner. The two latter classes cause
j nearly all the trouble at the homes, and I
I claim that a saint from heaven would soon
: lose Its temper if it had to mattags one of
the homes one week. Those iv charge, the
governors. I mean, are fine men. I know
them all, four in number, and respect them,
and as one that knows fact* In the case ask
the papers not to be too quick in arriving at
Co. C. 4th Coim. Inft.
Larjfe Quantities of Gold.
Mr. W. Y. Pemberton, of Butte, Mont.,
who bus just returned from Eagle City where
he has been attending court, declares in
very emphatic language that the Gear d'
Alene country is the richest in gold deposits
of any known on the Pacific slope. This
opinion is all the more valuable as Mr. Pem
berton has heretofore been very doubtful on
'he subject of the presence of gold there and
has written and talked against it. A writer
in the Butte Daily .Wrier says that "a very
important fact in the prosperity of the coun
try is the 'old channel diggings,' discovered
I upon the mountain side above the creek.
j These diggings have been traer-d foi a dis
! tance of tweuty-flve miles and tho ground
! locate-i. Men pack the dirt iv sacks down
to the creek and make good wages
every day in their clean ups. A ditch is be
ing built which will cover
all these old channel diggins.
When it is completed and the hydraulics get
to work the output of gold Mr. Pemberton
thinks will be enormous. Bedrock has been
| reached upon but one claim to Eagle creek —
the Maggie. It is thirty-two f*-<-t. to the; bed
rock, anil three feet of gravel, yielding $7 to
the pan was found upon it. The side gulches
! are all paying will where water can be ob
| tainr-d. Bnt little is being done in develop
! ing quartz lodes. The "Mother lode" has
i been stripped for a distance of about sixty
feet and shows free gold in profusion.
Keeler A Co.. the owners of the famous j
"Widow's claim," will increase their work- \
ing force to seventy-five men. Other 'com- ;
j panics will also employ a large number of J
| men. Aiwa property is not much in de
i tnand. Timber is plenty, water abundant
j and all the facilities for mining at hand."

Proposes to make a lurge display of dairy
products at the New Orleans International
exposition. Its managers are confident that
its members can make as good butter as enn
be made anywhere, and can take more than
its proportion of the $12,000 of prizes offered
for products of the dairy. An exhibit must
consist of at least one tub or tirkin from a
singly dairy aud five from a creamery.
There will be a good market at New Orleans
for all duiry products sentthere. The freight
will cost very little, aud a round trip ticket
for an exhibitor $25 or less. The exchange
will give a reward to every member who
makes an exhibit, and an additional prize
to every member who takes an exposition
prize. Through tbe courtesy of Miss C. S.

■ He. was a tramp of the simon pure quality,
and the name he is using now Is George
Moore. He possesses not one single redeem
ing trait of character, and is about as near
to a libel upon the name of man as anything
that travels. George is a late arrival, hav
ing touched this city on Thursday noon. lie
hails from St. Paul, and the walking being
exceedingly line at this season he walked in.
He possesses an antipathy for railroad trains.
The last time he was yanked out of a
boxcar for stealing a ride he experienced a
dillieulty for a number of days In bringing
his body to a sitting posture without a strong
feeling of discomfort George in certainly not
dilatory. He began to work his new field in
a few moments after his arrival. He made
a lift from a farmers wagon which consisted
of six earthern tea cups'. Why he did not
take the saucers too was because there was
not time and besides George is not fastidious
in bis habits. He is not a dude in dress
either. • Let the rich and opulent indulge
in the luxury of saucers he had no time for
such things. After making the capture In
wended his way to '"Liitle Juke's" saloon,
where a few momenta later he was met by
"Chief Welch. George has not the most hon
est looking countenance in the world and
the chief noticed that he was hogging some
! thing to his bosom with more than ordinary
fervor, while with his coat be strove to bide
It from the rude gaze of the vulgar world.
Before being questioned as to it* nature be
■aid it was a shirt. Chief Welch however
yanked the package and it materialized
into the afore named set of tea cups and
George was accordingly yanked to the cage.
Yesterday he appeared before Judge Porter
who gave him "ten days" merely as a
starter. When be gets out he will no doubt
| coutinne his journey toward the sunny
south. Such a course would be beneficial to
his interests for when a large, stout, healthy
looking men like him goes wrong and gets
down t« petty thieving our oillcers are sure
to be after them.
Evidently a man who understands where
good things are to be had, is in the city. On
Thursday night a party, who was no doubt
used to .the business, secured admission to
the rear door of the new family grocery store of
Mr.Carl Dice, in the. new Meagber block near
the city ball, and on yesterday when the
clerk came to open the store, he found things :
somewhat out of whack. The money drawer '
had been pried off and its contents,
which Mr. Dice says was about fire
dollars, abstracted and every .Indi
cation pointed to a high old meal. (In which
crackers, honey and canned fruits figured
largely) having been indulged in by the
midnight marauders. Access was gained by ]
means of a bole cut apparently with a chisel
in a pan nel of the door through which the I
arm had been Introduced and as 'the key ]
was left in the door it was thus readily
opened. A rear porch some twenty feet
from the ground afforded the burglar a
lodgment while engaged in effecting an en
trance and a ladder or some such thing fur
nished means of access to that. The police
are on track of the cunning crook.

The announcement that W. C. Marshall,
the scenic artist who so skillfully and elab
orately decorated the new opera bouse and
who painted its scenery and drop curtain, is
to become manager of that place of amuse
ment will be hailed with delight by all of the
amusement loving public. Mr. Marshall
possesses experience in the amusement line
and will devote to It bis time and attention
which the gentlemen who own It and who
have- business interests of their own outside
of the opera house could not do. The publla
may confidently expect something more than
ordinary in the line of amusements when the
season opens, and as there la bo much room
for improvement in that direction, it will be
a matter of profound satisfaction to the public
to see made shows banished from this really
fine house. Mr. Marshall has also assumed
the management of the Opera Roller rink
and will have his line orchestra there two
evenings in each week, beginning on to
night. Success to Mr. Marshall all around.

professional burglars who entered Fred
Schurch's store, on Vermlllion street, and

tion and blew it up without waking the occu
pants "61 the house. Some?!.") in cash were
secured and private papers and notes were
thrown into the streets. Had the robbery
occurred a few days sooner the booty secured i
would have been a very great loss to Mr.
Schurch. After leaving Mr. Scburch'a store
the robbers went to the barn of Senator A.
H. Truax and harnessed up 11 horse to a top
buggy and escaped without attracting any
body's notice. Nothing baa been beard from
