memorated for Us illustrious events, and yet
the event celebrated was one that exacted the
homage of all people, from the farthest east
to the west; it was not celebrated alone by
Israel, but all who honored the best instincts
and deeds ofrhumaoity paid homage to the
centenary celebration of one of the noblest
of mankind. Tl.is eminent and truly
good man was born October 24, 1734;
hi was descended from an Illustrious ances

himself with the order of Judaism, Ing one
of the most distinguished members of the
order in London. He was early recognized
as a public leader, as shown by his great work
in London. He married In 1812, and his
wife had Indeed been more precious than
pearls, and be bus had the co-operation
of a good stud true woman

They meditated together now they might ac
complish tin- most good for mankind. Seven
times lie bad journeyed to Palestine; he had
looked upon Jems lem and had .shed bitter
tears at its vanished glory; h" had meditated
cm the ruins of Zion and had implored God
to be merciful to bis children. His car had
always been open to the cry of anguish and
the wants of the oppressed; in discording
beets and nationalities he had come up to
the full measure of man's usefulness. Only
recently he bad purchased large tracts of land
In Jerusalem on which he had established
colonies of co-religion i3t?. His humane
heart and hand bad also gone out to relieve
the persecuted Jews of Russia, and be hud

dedicated to the relief and
irkvation of bis fcllowman. Each

The lives of men like Sir Moses Hootefiore
bad taught the race that men could make

Ie responding to this toaat the bpeaker j
said that the toast hud more In it than mere ;
sentiment, it expressed the divine principle j
tiiat right must prevail. That all men were
created (.■(ju.-i! [sa maxim which though some
times criticised is always conceded to be

asserted t'> be eoneeded; the laws arc sup

arc but the result of the ,
best human reason devised
into rules so as u> effect the greatest justice;
man's work was sometimes imperfect; it
was sometimes impossible to sec just what i
laws would best regulate man's conduct; j
justice was always the same; it took Into j
consideration human morals and acts; a!
difference as to person could never exist;
among savages physical wants, passion and
prejudice furnished the motives for
action: among civilized" nations it
was supposed to be different, but
even in civilised nations the rights of the
stranger were frequently Ignored for the
benefit of the native: it was so in Rome and
ancieut (ireei'e and in the middle ages; a
difference asrainst a man as a stranger can
not exbt against a man in the law which
made no discrimination except on the
ground of prejudice, or conditions. It was.
difficult for anyone to make
himself aware that another man w«is as good
as himself: among the hardest things for a
man to conquer were his own prejudices:
with better knowledge of each other, men's
dislikes and prejudices passed away: in this
respect a irreat change had taken place in the
past twenty years; the steam car, the steam
ship and the newspaper had been potent fae
tors to hrin«r about the result, and the time
was not far distant when the maxim of the
toast, "the native and the stranger shall en
joy equal rights."

Mr. Murray made an eloquent and char
acteristic address in responding; he paid a
hiLch tribute to the early Hebrew
settlers of St. Paul and cited
the perertiction of Mr. Goodhue
the early editor of St. Paul, that there would
be but three cities on the Mississippi river,
St. Louis, New Orleans and St. Paul, and
that Bt Paul would eclipse them all. Mr.
Murray made a fine speech and he was warm

Dedication of the New Kail of Acker
Post So- 21.
The Veterans with Their Wives, Children
and Friends Have an Evening of
, Happiness without Alloy.
Last evening Acker Post No. 21, took pos
session of its new hall on West Third street,
and in doing so celebrated the event with
speech making, song and conviviality. The
hall is large, well lighted and very pleasant.
In the center is what might be termed an
vltar, and at each end chairs for the princi
pal otllcers. Tiie walls have been newly
papered with fashionable paper, and arc
decorated besides with small banners, pic
tures and numerous suitable ornaments.
On each bide of the stage or platform is -a six 1
pound mountain howitzer. Among
the interesting articles is a powder
horn loaned for the occasion by
Mr. J. B. Chancy. This powder horn bears
the following inscription : John Chancy,
Junior, April, 1788. This indicates that the
old horn is about one century old. Besides
the hall proper the members of the post have
three other rooms, which have also been
papered. One of these is arranged for a |
dining room, and another for a library, j
while the third will be used as an ante-room. j
The library now has about fifty volumes, and j
this number will soon be largely increased.
The main hall is supplied with an upright
Knabe piano, and with all else that is neces
sary and convenient. Upon the wall, in the
rear of the president, or commander, is the j
portrait of Capt. William Acker, and near to
the middle of the hall, upon the floor, was
the camp fire, which burned i
as brightly as ever one j
did under three stakes crossed at the top.
The audience was a large one, sufficient to j
fill the hall, and about one third was com- i
posed of ladies. Some of the comrades were
late in getting to the hall and thn conse
quence was that the ceremonies of dedication
were delayed a good deal. They wore finally
commenced. by an opening march performed
on the piano by Miss Ella Richards. This
young lady played all the accompaniments
for the singers in a very superior manner
throughout the entire evening* This selec
lion was followed by the song entitled,
"When Johnnie comes Marching Home. '
The formal transfer of tbe rooms to the
Post by the chairman of the ball committee,
Mr. E. 11. Stevens, was then made, in a few
suitable words. And the hall was accepted by
Commander Siraonton in a very inter- :
esting remarks during which he sketched the j
work the past had done. He also
referred to the work of the soldiers in the
field. This was followed by the well known
song entitled, "We'll Rally Round the
Flag." Capt. Babb, commanding the de
partment of Minnesota, made a few humor
ous remarks and was followed by a cornet
■■ and piano duet. Cart. Castle, of St. Paul,
and Col. Hicks, of Minneapolis, each made
some interesting remarks. The Misses
Lighlburne gave the well known song en
tit.cd. "Our Camp Fires Burn Brightly,"
with much expression. Mr. Roberts, of
Minneapolis, made a few remarks when the
programme was brought to a close by Miss
Simon ton singing Barbari Fritche. At this
point the entertainment was interrupted by a
call to hard tack and v coffee, and all resolved
themselves with a committee of entertain
ment. At this moment Gen. J. H Baker
entered the hall, and subsequently spoke a
few words. After the dedication exercises
the room was cleared and dancing was be
gun and continued till late into the ni-rbt.
It was a very happy and successful dedication
and every body present whs nappy.

Year Ended June 30.
The Argument in the Pennsylvania
* Baltimore & Ohio Injunction
The Rate War Still Goes on— The Pennsylva
nia's Threat— Miscellaneous
The Argument Submitted,-
Philadelphia, Oct. 24.- In the circuit
court of the United States, for the eastern
district of Pennsylvania, Judges McNiuua
and Butler on the bench, argument was
heard to-day on the motion for the injunc
tion against the Pennsylvania Railroad com
pany by the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad com
pany, to prevent the former from carrying
into effect a notice terminating the traffic
relation between the two companies, so far
as relates to the transportation of passenger
and express cars of the Baltimore & Ohio
over the line of the Pennsylvania Railroad
company between Pennsylvania and New
York. The Pennsylvania railroad in its ar
gument held that it could not be presumed
that a foreign corporation which had received
no authority from the state to do any busi
ness whatever with its leader could
run its cars and collect its tolls
over the highways of the state.
The language of the legislature
is that the Pennsylvania railroad shall trans
port the cars of connecting lines. The Bal
timore & Ohio railroad was not a connecting
line. It had no track nearer than Baltimore
to the lines of the Pennsylvania railroad at
Philadelphia. It had been clearly shown by
the affidavits of President Roberts that extra
ordinary facilities had been offered the Bal
timore & Ohio Railroad company over the
Pennsylvania railroad lines, and the former
had had use of the terminal facilities of the
latter, which had not been accorded any
other company, and this had been done in
the hope it would not construct a competing
line parallel to the lines owned and con
trolled by the Pennsylvania railroad. As
the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad company, j
however, were now building such competing:
line, it was thought due to the shareholders
of the Pennsylvania Railroad company to
withdraw these exceptional facilities from
the Baltimore & Ohio. It could not be sup
posed that the court would declare that a
foreign corporation had the right to use the
facilities of a road to build up its business,
which it would turn over to its own lines as
soon as they were completed. The court
took the papers and reserved a decision.

Chicago. Oct. 24. — Managers of the Kan

and agreed to restore fastbound passenger
rates at once. This decision does not affect
rates from Chicago to Kansas City. Rates
from Chicago to Ohio river points seem to be
in a precarious condition . There 13 no open

pectation the passenger rate remained at $9
to Chicago to-day. The Burlkigton made a
proposition to return to $11, but the other
roads declined. The object of the latter is to
force the Burlington to pay the I'M assessed
against it and re-enter the agreement.

THE MILAVCKEE FIRE.
Milwaukee, .Oct. 24. — At an early tour
this morning the fire in T. A. Chapman's
large dry goods establishment was brought
under control and prevented its spreading
to adjoining buildings, but the flames having
communicated to the basement of that por
tion of the building occupied by Stark Bros.,
wholesale dealers in carpet goods, where a
large stock of oil cloths was stored, half a
dozen streams of water were kept on the fire
the entire night. Aside of Chapman and
Stark Bros, small portions of the building
were occupied by Poposkey's art emporium,
whose loss is $2,000, insured; Dillingham's
dental parlors, loss $1,000, insured; Arion
club quarters, loss $1,700, insured. • H. E.
Dickinson, owner of a small portion of the !
Chapman building on Wisconsin street, sus
tains a loss of $20,000, insured. Chapman
will make no positive statement of his future
plans, but it is generally believed he will se
cure temporary quarters and resume busi
ness as early as possible and rebuild in the
At noon the vault was opened and ;
the entire contents, books, etc., • \
were found in as perfect a condition as When j

from a grate in an obscure part of the . build

A FIRE IN* THE RIVERSIDE PEXITEXTIAKT.
Pittsbuho, Oct. 24. — This morning about
5 o'clock the guards on duty at Riverside
penitentiary discovered flames issuing from
hat portion occupied by Warden Wright as
a residence; The sounding of the alarm
quickly brought, the fire department, but
meantime the flames had gained consider-,
able headway, and before they could be sub
dued the building was damaged to tne extent
of $10,000. The news that the penitentiary was
burning spread rapidly and created intense
excitement. Rumors circulated that several
prisoners were hurt and others bad escaped,
but these reports proved unfounded, in fact
prisoners were not aware of the fire until the
flames were extinguished, as the warden's
residence is a seperate building, connected
with the prison by a bridge. The fire was
caused by a defective flue.

» The World's air.
The movement inaugurated by the Man
kato board of trade at a recent meeting,
looking for an exhibit by the city of Mankato
at the coming centennial cotton exhibition
and world's fair, which opens as all are aware
at New Orleans on December 1 cext, was
brought to a successful issue Thursday even
ing by the action of the city council,
who voted the sum of $1,000
to the board of trade committee
under whose auspices the exhibition is to be
made. The committee are now prepared to
go ahead and collect their exhibits and have
already engaged space for the Minnesota de
partment. The exhibits will be large and
will consist of two or three ear loads which
will be transported there and returned free of
cost to exhibitors. Upon its return at the
close of the fair next May the exhibit will be
placed in one of the large lower rooms at the
city hall building which has already been
granted for that purpose, and from time to
time additions will be made to it so that it
will be a sort of museum of the natural re
sources of Mankato and its surroundings as
well as the products of the muny manufac
turing establishments which are the life and
support of the city, and which are fast giving
it a commercial importance throughout the
northwest. Among the many
prominent features of the exhibit
will be a monument of Mankato stone thirty
three feet high representing a perpendicular
section of the quarry, each layer and seam
showing as perfect as in the ledge. The
several layers will be neatly cut and those of
a sufficient degree of hardness to admit of it
will be polished. Mankato quick lim«,
ground lime, cement, samples of the many
valuable clays, brick, fire brick, pottery,
drain tile and specimens of the different
woods as well as samples from all of our
factories will be among the articles com
prising the exhibit. The collection and ship
ment must be made by November 15 and is
in the hands of F. L. Walters, Esq., chair
roan of the committee. It will not only be
a source of gratification and pride to every
resident of the city now and for all time to
come to be thus represented at this great
international exhibition but it will
be the supreme ' opportunity for
extending the name and fame
of our most remarkable natural advantages.
Mankato ought to be a city of from fifty to
one hundred thousand people, and nothing
which has occurred since its settlement will
give it such an opportunity for distinction
and for calling the attention of capital to it
as this great fair. There will be not only
people from all parts of other civilized coun
tries, but from all portions of our own
country there, and as an advertisement of
! our resources and opportunities for the profit
! able investment of capital, it will not have
i its equal for many years. Let every one
who desires to help Mankato, aid in the

The re-opening of the Opera roller rink on
Wednesday evening may be said to have
t been the commencement of the roller skat
! ing season. The heated term having passed
and a splendid hard maple floor having been
laid, there is now every facility for th« en
joyment of that most popular and healthy
amusement. Those who believe that the
skating mania has subsided have only to
j visit Chicago and .other large cities to dispel
i any such illusion. Two new rinks are now
in process of construction in St. Paul, while
• in Minneapolis there are too many to count.
j The superb new floor and tine arrangement
i of the Opera rink will be certain to make it a
' place of popular resort during the coining
! season. Every measure the management
; announce that will tend to elevate
\ its social tone will he taken
and it will be made as suitable
a resort for all as the home circle. In addi
tion there will be frequent attractions. On
last evening William 11. Wright opened an
engagement of three appearances in trick,
fancy and plain skating, which includes an
afternoon matinee to-day and an evening
performance. Mr. Wright's exhibition on
last evening was very fine and will be excel
lent to-day and to-night ' The ''Germania'"
trill furnish the music. Admission 15 cents; :
