A slight rally in the morning was followed by a depressed afternoon. The market closed weak, with several shares lower than they have been for some lime, One cause of the depression was the suspension of George Upilyke »V Co. The Greeley Belief Expedition cost the country $762,990, and the returns from it were scarcely more than dead men's bones. Is the next Senatorial contest in Ohio, John Sherman will have for his opponent Hon. Hugh J. Jewctt, and John is already quaking in his boots at the prospect. A member of the National Republican committee, who himself did not approve of the course, says that the committee expended something' in excess of $100,000 in printing and circulating the obscene campaign docu ments which were gotten up against Gov. Cleveland. No wonder the guilty party was j beaten. The Navy, according to Mr. Chandler, cost $17,292 for last year, and the late of the rallapooea is an illustration of the sea-going qualities of the national shipping. Still Mr. Chandler thinks a great deal of money should be appropriated lor the toy called the ''Nave**," chiefly in repairs on the rotten bulks that any little fishing schooner can put at the bottom of the ocean. Uxiteii States Senator Palmer, of Michi gan,who has the annual income of $175,000, and is the richest man in congress, says all but three things in this life arc illusions. The three exceptions are a fall stomach, a good suit of clothes and a bed to sleep in. "Every thing <•!:;•-," be says, "belongs to tbe realm of illusions." It is perhaps needless to add that the rich, well fed, well dressed Senator, is, politically, of the Republican "illusion."

The Democrats in Washington arranging to eelcbmtu the great national victory of their party, asked Secretary Lin col for the services of an Army band, which was refused. Nothing f much would have been thought of the mat- V t r, hud not the .Secretary, a feu days later, on the arrival of Jack Logan to take his seat in 11.

TUESDAY MORXIXG: DECEMBERS 1884, congratulating each other that they could get into town without having Lincoln's band at their heels. The following item from the Minneapolis Journal of last evening, coupled wilh the | action of the Board of Trade of that cltr, looking to tbe purchase of fair grounds near Minnebaha falls, doe* docs not lock very fa- i vorable to "union fair grounds between the two cities" LOOKS LIKE A JOB. The Pioneer Prftt hint!" at a scheme to get an appropriation from tbe legislature to purchase a portion of the Kunist-y county poor farm and con vert it into a "etai* park" and union fair ground*, j There ■ evidently a job i • the wind, which the I keen scent of tb« Hennepln county delegation j will be relit d cpon to nth. Tbe ground al- ! luded to l» certain to tie taken into the city lim- ' its of St. Pant in a few years, and it would be a : fine thing for that city to get an extensive park M the expense of the state. Let St. Paul pay for | her own park*. n» Minneapolis in doing. As for ; nnion fair ground*, we want none of them. We will run our own fair, and M Paul can run o£e of her own if she can muster gumption enough to make isuch an institution a sacce**. Rkithi.ican prluts are thrown into an cc etacj of excitement because Mr. Follett of Ohio, has made a move to abolish the Re publican machinery of election supervisors ■ and United slates Marshals with bull-dog ' pistols. Since the introduction of this species i of machinery its usefulness to the Republi- > can party has never bad a more striking il- , lustration than at Cincinnati last October, j when that pestilent scab, Ben Buttcrworth was elected to Congress by the gang of Mar- ■ shuls and their bull-dogs. An effort was made in 1878 to repeal this partisan outrage upon the public, bat the Republican Senate j would nut permit it. That body will not now interpose to keep the measure upon the stat- ' ute book*. The Republicans will appoint no j more Marshal? The. foul bM Ebould be) j wiped out. The party soon to be in power will have no occasion for the dirty work the law was framed to execute and has performed j to the disgust of till honest men. There Is a very general feeling of indig nation un<l disgust over the prize fight irrup tion which has broken out of late in St. Paul and Minneapolis. Decency is further out raged by the Sabbath being selected for these brutal exhibitions. Unfortunately the laws of Minnesota do not allow the sending of these "hard hitters" to the penitentiary, and as long as disreputable newspapers pander to the depraved classes of society by print ing elaborate reports of these brutalities, they will be likely to be continued. It is natural to look for euch things in the Planter Press, for it is in keeping with the character of the sheet taut has undertaken to tk elevate the standard of criticism," since it has lost the patronage and free tickets of the Opera house. We could not expect anything better, cither, of the Minneapolis Tribune under Deacon Ncttleton's manage ment, as he was at one tim • too good to print a Sunday paper, but we had buped lor better things under the new Bostouese management. In this we were sadly disap pointed, as the Tribune yesterday joined the P. P. in a long report of Sunday's brutality. The subscribers to these immoral sheets should apply a remedy which will at least stop the printing of these reports. The withdrawal of a little patronage might "ele vate the standard some more. THE I'LAtll -/•; IX VIIIGtXIA ASH KENTUCKY. The value of pure and wholesome water has never been duly and fully appreciated by the general public. Disease and death have cififii resulted from the use of impure water, without the victims, or their friends or phy sicians suspecting the cause. The mysteri ous disease that has been devastating the mountain regions of Kentucky and Virginia is now attributed to the use of poisonous water. Tiie disease Is a fatal form of flux, resembling cholera, somewhat, and is vio lent aud uncontrollable in its attacks. What is very remarkable about it is, that it is con tagious. When it eaten a family, it is sure to take ever}' in. tuber of it, and whole fami lies have been swept off by it. It prevail« in n.any of the mouutaln counties of the states referred to. Invaria bly it is most wide-spread near the highest mount. i.;-, and by 'he mounUin streams whose waters are used by the inhabitants for family purposes. The diyeaso extends over a territory of about sevt nty miles wide by eighty miles long. Tbe victims are seized with griping pains, followed by a bloody and weakening; dlarrbaea and in a few hours proves fatal. It is accompanied by intense thirst iadicatiug mineral poisoning as the cause of the epidemic. A correspondent who has visited the In fected district, writes that it Is a well-known fact that the streams along which the disease prevails !ind their beginning In the moun tains among rocks containing alkali, arson ites, find other poisonous minerals. Until recently, no rain has fallen for many weeks, and the streams had nearly dried up. The water remaining, and which the people were forced to use was powerfully charged with these poisonous substances, and the contin ued use of it resulted in the epidemic. Dr. J. BJ llubbcli,who was sent to the infec ted district to investigate aud re port, stales that nothing definite is known as to the extent of the epidemic, but all information shows that it is quite extensive and fatal. All attribute the disease to poisonous water. Of this the Doc tor will make such chemical examination as opportunities permit, and send out samples for careful analysis. A FOIITUXATB KSU4PE. The late head of the Republican ticket, as an expectaut, hopeful candidate, and the same person M ■■- defeated, exasperated can didate uttered sentiments in regard to tbe South in violent antagonism to each other. In his letter of acceptance and in his stumo speeches, this person wrote and spoke favor ably, hopefully, kindly of tin South. In his after election, Augusta serenade speech with surprising virosity be denounced the South as disloyal and opposed to everything just and loyal. In July, the hopeful man, speak in gof the South said: "Prejudices have yielded aud are yielding,, while a . growing cordialicy warms the Southern and Northern heart alike." Declaring that the feeling be tween the sections '"is better now," than for the tone jem prior to Mr Lincoln's elec tion, the expectant man said: 'The South ern commonwealths are learning to vindicate civil rights and are adapting themselves to the conditions of political tranquillty and in dustrial progress. If there be occasional and violent outbreaks in the South against this peaceful progress, the public opinion of the country regard them as exceptional, and hopefully tracts that each will be the last." la the AugustA utterance this hopeful, charitable view of the South was strangely and violently antagonized, and instead of ad mitting and continuing to say that "occas ional tad violent outbursts at the South," arc only "exceptional"' the South is de ; nounced as all wrong in its modes, senti ments and purposes, and is arraigned as in a position menacing to the government and its institutions. In the Augusta speech the defeated candidate in bitter, railing sentences said: "The course of affair* in the South has crushed | out the political power of more than 6,000. American citizen*, and bar transferred it by ! violence to oiherf. •■•••• The colored popu i lation, almost to a man, desire to enpport the ; Republican party, bat by a eyrtem of cruel mi i timidation and by violence and murder, whenever ' violence and murder was thought necessary, they are absolutely deprived of all political power. i If the ontra^e 'topped I hero it would as bad I «aaaf U. But it doonn't stop there; for not only is the negro population dUfranchived, bnt the power which rightfully and constitutionally be long* to them is transferred to the white popula tion, enabling the white population «.f the South to ex<>rt mi electoral influence f*r beyond tba exerted l>y the tame number of 'white people v the North. • • • It tfc 6 t be quietly conceded In this ration it will harden into custom un til the bml£c of inferiority will attach to tne Southern whit* man a* odiously as ever Norrnis noble stamped It upon Saxon cburl." What is to be thought of the man capable of each utterances before and after election. Is he honest and worthy? Can there be any spirit more dansrerous. more pestilent, more disgraceful and afflictive in American politico? The nation bat bad a narrow but most for tunate escape from placing supreme execu tive power in the keeping of a person so ut terly and audacious!? inconsistent, alike de void of personal honor and reckless of official integrity. CHOLERA. The expectation bo generally prevalent that the epidemic cholera in Southern Eu rope was disappearing seem* destined to dis appointment The m-w from Paris is that the disease not only continue* there but is EDreading on account of the pollution of the water supply. In view of the fact that it i* only a question of time when the scourge will visit our shores much inM-.-t is aroused in regard to the adoption of preventive meas ures, and more thorough sanitary regula tions. The general Government is being appeal ed to, and Congress is being mv. ..-.! «.-• hasten the adoption of a thorough quarantine system, and the aid to provide for .-•. i and universal sanitation. The report of the Illi nois State Hoard of Health unres and advises that the general Government should main tain such a national health service a* should by rigid inspection at the port of embarka tion question the frct-dum from disease and infection of all persons and things lrom in fected districts, and shall fr-cure tin- surveil lance of curb persons and things while on shipboard, and, when necessary, detention at quarantine btations on thU side fortiv.it ment and disinfection. To this end it is urged upon Congress to provide for the ap pointmeut and maintenance it all such for eign ports where cholera, yellow fever, plague, small-pox or scarlet fever exUts, or are liable to exist, of medical oflk-cr* of health, the same being cither accredited con suls, or attached to the consul tales. Dr. Rauch, Secretary of the Illinois State Board of Health in a report 6ays "that it inuy be entirely true that, if all our food-supplies were wholesome, and our water-supplies not only unpolluted but unpollutable; if sewigc and refuse disposal were prompt and com plete; if our cities, towns aud villages were all models of sanitary perfection, and their inhabitants free from predisposition or sus ceptibility, acquired or inherited; in short, if there were no ignorance, nor poverty, nor tilth, Lorinannity in the land, we ini.'ht dis pense with precaution against the introducton of disease. 1 ' But in vlcwof the present condi tion of affairs, concludes that i; 1* non sense to UIU about relying on local sanitation to com bat cholera. He considers it to be a pre-emi nently quarantinable disease, so far as ibis country is concerned, claiming that no single MM has ever succeeded in establish ing an epidemic here — successive and repeated Importations have always occurred before it has effected a lodumenL A national health organization is a neces sity to carry out ■ useful pys'.em of quaran tine, and Dr. Kuuch thinks that .the mem bership of the National Board of Health "should be enlarged so as to more perfectly represent the natural sanitarj areas, and its members should be familiar not alone with the sanitary features of their respective dis tricts, but equally they should be identified with the commercial, business, and indus trial interests." Sooner or later the national government will be compelled not only to as sume supervision of exterior quarantines, but to provide for a permanent system of co operation with SUte and local governments in the administration of inter- sanita tion, in order, on the one hand, to prevent the introduction of exotic epidemic diseases, and on the other, to prevent their spread from state to state along the great intra-na tlonal highways of travel and commerce. This is a national duty. It is one that the national government only can adequately discharge, and its expense is, equitably, one which should be defrayed from the national treasury.

St. Paul, Dee. 8. — As everybody has had a whack .it the Street Railway company I will take tbis opportunity of finding a little fault In the way the present system is run. I wish to make a few KUt:^e»Uo:.s as to the proper way to ran a street railway, for as I have never bceii connected In any way with Mil b a corporation, of course, I know more about the way that thing* ought to be run than the manager who has spent his life in the business. In tbe first place, whenever I want to catch a car, to go any where, the car I want U always just past and out of hearing. Then I have to wait for the next car, which is always late. Wiitu it does come in sight and I manage to make the driver see me and undrmaud that I will pay my fare, notwithstanding my appearance, then I find that the car is full as a police man on election day. Then somebody always look* at me with a want-to-be-lunny smile and says: "Always room for one more." Thi-n a bis: six foot, two hundred and fat man gets on and insists on squeez ing himself into the car when there isn't room fur a consumptive broom stick. I arrive at :',}£ avenue southeast and ring the bell just be! ore we reach the crossing, so as to give the drvlcr plenty of time to stop; but ho don't need much time, or else he is afraid I won't get my feet wet, so he stops right in the muddiest place be can find, about six las* from the crossing. Why does be do this! Is it an infirmity inherited from bit aurcstore! or does be get it from long association with those who always precede him — bis mules! If I&min 1 hurry be stops every block to let rome one on or off. bat If I cateb sight of a pretty girl on the sidewalk that I want to look at, be drives like be was troing to a fire. If I do get a seat in a car 6osie lady is sure to come in and then I have to give it up to her, for no one else will do it. And speaking of street cars and ladles, it secma to me that tbe gentlemen, or men, '.viio patronize the St. Anthony Hill car*, are the most nngentiemanly crowd I ever gut into. They will often let a lady stand up for blocks, just because they are tired 1 They must be very tired, indeed, when they forget to be gentlemen. Would any of them If their mother, or sister, stand up while they sit down ! From what I bare seen of them, I believe they would. And now I want to make another sugges tion to the Street Railway company, and it is this: Cars on the St. Anthony Hill Hue. on which I reside, ought to be run every half minute during the hours that I go to my meals, and no one to be allowed to stop the car that I ride in. Fast borces should also be used. To be sure, all this would be a great expense to the company, with no compensation for the extra expenditure, but then, you know, the street cars arc run fur public benefit and not as a source of profit to the owners of the line. At least I should judge so by what I have read and beard. Why don't we hear from tee P. P. on this subject? It seems to me that they ought to bllng a little mud in the direction of the Street Railway company, or have they passes over the line! STAifTHOXT Hux. "Tellth* Truth." To the Editor of the Globe: In last Friday's issue of your piper it was said the contractors for the grading of Oak dale avenue had not paid their men for the hut six weeks, and that they had refused, and still refused to give them their lime or certify to it. ■ That statement is all false and wbofver you got it from either did it m&Mcously or be cannot tell the truth. The facts are that the men were paid every Saturday, with one exception, for the past six weeks, and the contractors gave them their time and never refused to certify to It, except when they demanded more than they worked. It is true that there is a balance due time, but it is also true that there is plenty of money in the city's possession to the credit of the contractor to more than pay all claims and finish the contract. The contractor paid out nearly three thousand dollars to the men in the last five weeks, not one dollar of the amount coming from the city. If the city will bold euorgh to finish the contract and pay the balance to the men no one will suf fer, and the contractor will be satisfied. J. W. Sunns, Contractor, , per M. B. Fakkell. [Messrs. Smythe & Fam-11 are presuming a good deal in puttinz forth the above de nial as a statement of the ''truth." Any one who chanced .to visit the c faces of the city comptroller and treasurer Saturday and yes terday would have found a great throng of laborers who would verify all the statements published by the Globe. The publication probably bad a salutary effect in stirring up the contractors, as the comptroller and I treasure have devoted the last two days to helping out the laborers by paying off a por tion of what is due them. If contractors wuulJ pay their men city oSkers might find more time to attend to the legitimate duties of their offices. All other public butiness Iw ad 1 pay their men been practically sus more time to attend to the legitimate duties ■t th«-:r o.'ii-.'.-s. All other public buiines in these offices has been practlct'ly sus pended for two days to relieve these poor people. — Ed. <« lobe.] A BIG SCHEME. 1 Plan Proposed for the Appointment of Commission* ro Fix the Grades of Wheat and Reznlate the!

HcH bought a commission would be appointed H jo protect the Interests of the growers andH producers, and he also expressed H .be hope that the Miuuesota legislature would provide for a similar cooi mission, in which event the needed protec-H ion would U- given to both the producers of I this state aud Dakota. This, be thought. I ftuuld effectually setUe the matter and at thsH iamft time guard a most important interest. H riic duties of the commissions should beH :le*rly outlined and heavy penalties would H be provided for breach of trust. H Fbe proposed commission would stamp outH [he evli* of the elevator system, particularly I it Ouiuth, f rom vrcicb the wheat growers of H Dakota and Minnesota now sutler. If Min nesota refused the protection asked for, then I the producers would De compelled ; > look I DuUide of her borders for their markets and H in this connection Mr. Steele was emphatic in saying thut they would not look in vain. In conclusion he mM that, if the scheme as outlined was consummated, the wheat grow rrs of the northwest would have an outlet to the markets without going to Dulutb, and lie »poke confidently of tbe complete success of the proDOsed measures.

The Advance of Two Worthy Army Officers Made the Occasion of Festivities. The recent war department orders retiring from active service Captain F. A. Kendall, Twenty-fifth Infantry, "on account of dis ability Incident to the service," entails the ! promotion of First Lieutenant Washington I. Sanborn to the captaincy of company •Hi.' and of Second Lieutenant Edwin F. Glenn I to the first lieutenantcy of company '"B'' of that regiment. The two officers last men tioned are now stationed at Fort . Bnelllng, ! where Lieutenant Glenn will remain — his > new company forming a part of the : garrison of that post. Captain San born 's 1 company is now stationed at Fort SUseton, Dakota, whither the captain will remove -as soon as the necessary orders shall have been issued. Captain San born - and Lieutenant Glenn rejoice in the possession of a host of friends in St. Paul and Minneapolis who will be delighted to learn of the good fortune of each, while they, and our society people in general, will regret the fact that Captain Sin bom's promotion will necessitate bis re moval to a distant station. To mark the event, and to emphasize the esteem in which these two gentlemen are held by their brother officers, a complimen tary dinner waa tendered them at Fort ell ing Suuday evening. The affair was one of the most recherche and enjoyable which ha* taken place this «pa<nß. Among the army officers present were uctictd Colonel* Gentry, Bcntzonl and Lawson, Major Smith, Captain San born, Lieutenants Wilson, Tully, An drews, Glenn, Biddle of the engineer* corps, Ahem and Tear, who, together with Messrs. Bootes and Scbenck, of the quartermaster's department, seated themselves to a repast which, in its elaborateness and completeness of detail would have done credit to a Del monico—twelve courses being served, with wines of a superior vintage in profusion. Tue occasion was a very happy one, and Col. Bentxoni in a neat speech took advan tage of it to dilate at some length and in a most complimentary manner upon the uni form gentlemanly characteristics and general efficiency whica h»v«. • marked tar deport ment of Lieutenant* Sanborn and G.enn in all their private and official intercourse with the speakers, whose good opinion of Lieut. San born was cemented by a personal experi ence and association with him of seven years; ant! he expressed the conviction that the advance In military rank and posi tion which their promotion entails, trill Sul both gentleman awake to the responsibilities which that promotion carries with it, and their lives henceforth will continue to be marked by an adherence to the exalted sense of faithfulness and integrity which has tvsr been their beacon light In private and of ficial life. At about midnight the party sop* -< well pleased with the evening's entertain ment. "amusements. Yer»niHf* ami Hurl' Antoinette- The first of the famous serifs of "Stod dard Lectures" was given at the Grand Opera hous? last night. The audience was large,but nut nearly so numerous as tbe merits of tbeen tcrisiument deserved. The Gj/mse exag gerates nothing in faying that the Stoddard j lectures are the most enjoyable and -•.rue tive euterUinments which have ever been presented to a St. I\uil audience. The opening lecture of the present scries was entitled '.'Versailles *^d Marie Antoinette.'! Tbe lecturer briefly recounted the Ui?<olute reign* of Louis XiV and Louis XV. depicting in graphic lan- ! guage the deplnrafclo condition nf tfc-.« French j peasantry during that terrible era. One j third of tbu country belonged to the peo- j pie, and tat* other two thirds to the church and nob!!:!y, the two tl!rds being culirviy exempt from taxation. The almost count less luUliuns squandered l>y those unprinci pled era] i ran was wrung from the poor peo ple, who j*»?v-?£?v2 Vut one tLirvi of the goil ■nl they wi rf uttvriy destroyed by the bur i»-n heaped upor. ijcra. Want 31.1 artual starvation filled the land when th» youcg kitjg, Louis XIV, and his beautiful young wife, Marie Antoinette, ascended the throne. Thoagb the reign t>f Louis XVI. was not marked by the pro3l ;acv and debauchery of his predecessors, he uid the penally for the sins of his predeces sors, and the people, like a do* D trodden Burin, finally turned against royalty with a i terrible venseancp. ; All of this is told in the choico&t of lan- : guage, delivered 11 a style nearly faultless, »nd every step is illustrated by pictures thrown upon a canvass with such real appearance hat the listener almost imagines that he is absolutely in France, wandering through the rorgeous palaces, inspecting the horrible bastile, promenading in the parks, admiring Lhe statuary, minelinz with the peasantry, viewing Hi.- revolt, etc. It is an entertain ment that can hardly be described, for it is uf itself an illustrated description of one of Lhe most notable eras the world has ever teen. ! To-Dlgbt the subject is "Paris in the Reign . i>f Terror." This is a continuation of last night's lecture but will be*excecdiugly enter taining, as it will show Paris in all its glory during tlfat terrible era. The H't/H'ir Stwlrnt. The first production of the Beggar Student — three act comic opera, by Millocker, will Lake place at the Grand Opera house on Thursday evening. The open has met with phrnomonal success throughout the cast, lad no doubt will attract big audiences. The Thompson Opera company, will present Lhe opera here, and comes highly endorsed •very where they have played. Mr. W.W. Thompson, the manager, is from Australia, and has purchased the exclusive right to produce the opera in the United States and Canada. The Beggar Student will be mounted in elegant style, with the original costumes from the Casino New York, and Lhe orchestra will be increased In order to rive the opera a perfect rendition. The sale of scats begins to-aay. , The opera will be repeated on Friday and Saturday evenings, md Saturday matinee. Thr -td'nnlr.i.l I'.drn. "When 8 o'clock came at the Olympic thea ter last night Manager Hilton went into the )ropcrty room and resurrected the hitherto : neglected sign, "Standing room only," and ill who came after that hour were compelled to take their chances on seeing the show from the extreme end of the lobby. The at traction was the "Auamless Eden" aggrcga- | ion of blonde loveliness and presumed lymmetry, atid, a* a mutter of course, the •aid-headed men were on hand early, as was evidenced from the fact that a seat in the ront rows, or anywhere else for that matter, :ou!d not have been had for love or money. It was a curious audience, mads up, as it was, of old stagers, young-old men, who ivere son* in that gcrl cf >uslness; middle-aged men, whose ack of. hirsute adornment showed that heir early piety had not been .neglected, ludes and wan lovers, who puilsd cigarettes md passed on the points of tbe ladies in a anguid sort of way which showed that con tact with the world had not improved their breeding, beys who were iv tbeir teens and icted '•.*? a pack of yahoos, and striplings »ho just wanted to see tbe blooming thing, foa know. It was a jolly crowd, and one bat was bent on having the worth of its noncy and it got it. As for the show, it was something that ijrrecably disappointed in botb it 3 novelty tnd freedom from anything of a salacious or ndecent cnaracter, other than what is seen nightly on the variety stages of lb« country. There are some twenty odd ladies la the :ompany, an I In "the first part hey appeared to charming adTSßtage v full evening dress, the absence of tbe ibbrevfated skirt atid low-tide Jersey being a ! Mm of regret and disgust to the eman ated aristocrats who occupied the front 'cats Later on there was a more liberal Ilsplay of anatomical symmetry. One ro.uptaou* dan.- capered cut in sahlo !esh'ni.'s that wcc!d have suited a make-up or Hamlet, and she did the serious chronic tusiness in a manner that paralyzed the house. Tbe piano solo by Miss Lceter was good, and Hiss Townsend won tae favor of the audi ence by her song; Miss Nelson won goiden >pinlons and plaudits by her unique conjur ing tricks and her management of her i trained pigeons was superb. The quartette of song and dance beauties took the audience by storm, but one of the neatest acts was Lhat of little Alice Clay, who performed on the invisible wire. Miss North In her midget act was very clever, and the aerial act on Ibe rapaze by Zoe was more than acceptable. The performance concluded with the bur lesque "An Adamless Eden," in which ths ladies disported in a mimic gardeu|from which the primative man is barred out aud they rule Lhe roost alone. The same show to-night. . ■ Kew Masonic Temple. For a long time the Masons of St. Paul have talked at odd times a good deal about erecting a Masonic temple, and many years ago sotue enthusiastic Masons went so far as to buy a lot for the purpose of having at some time a temple elected thereon.
