The Council to liivc»tlirate the Bur
lington* Northern improvement..
At the meeting of til( council last night !
a communication was received from Mayor
Kice, inclosing a letter from Un L. Lam- j
prey, on the subject of the diversion of the ,
mam channel of the Mississippi river j
within the city limits. The mayor says
that he has had statements made to him by
a citizen of the highest respectability and
intelligence, who has Riven the subject
much attention, and who has no spe
cial interest to be affected by it. that
the Burlington ft Northern Railway com
pany has tilled up the river, near Dayton ■
bluff, beyond the bed of the current, as it
has heretofore existed, in which, before the
filling, the water was seventeen feet m
depth, and that at the present moment the
filling has reached a point where ft is but
twelve feet in depth, and that the result
will be, in his opinion, to force the currant
to the other ride of the river and in hurli
water carry away the unprotected embank- ;
ment and possibly throw the main channel |
In a new direction. "if no inves
tigation lias been had under your
direction," says Mayor Rice/ 1
recommend that you cause a thorough
one to be made in order to enable you to
apply such remedy as may bo needed, n
any, and also to quiet the public mind.
which seems to bo considerably disturbed
about the damage that may be caused to
navigation and to private property, and the
question of the ultimate liability of the city
to owners of such property. The communi
cation was referred to a special committee
consisting of Aid. Dowlan, Sanborn, John
son Starkey and Mines, the corporation
attorney and the city engineer, and further
more the corporation attorney was in
structed to obtain immediately an injunc
tion to stop the work.
Tills well-known hill was selected by Mr.
George S. Heron as a place when lie pro
posed to put in a toboggan slide, lie ac
cordingly put in a petition to the council
for an ordinance giving him authority to
construct one on that thoroughlare. On
the oilier hand Mr. D. K. Noyes appeared
on behalf of the carnival association to op
pose it, on the ground that inasmuch as the
carnival association had gone into tho mat
ter so extensively and expected to make no
money out of it. but did what it did
for the note benefit of the public,
that that organization ought to have
the control of all the slides in the city. The
opposition was all respectful to the Mr.
Heron, who was a liberal contributor to
the carnival Mr. Noyes gave many, rea
sons why no toboggan slides should be al
lowed in the city except those that were
under the control of the Carnival associa
tion. He suggested that they change the
ordinance so as to have it read to the Car
nival association instead of to Mr. Heron.
The latter finally withdrew, and the Car
nival association was given the authority
to use the hill.
This body was directed to construct a
■ewer on Lincoln avenue, from Ouklund to
Dale street; to construct a sewer on Wacouta

lice-alarm telegraph instruments for use in j
central police-alarm ollice. The clerk is to

1112 DOS'! GET BAIL.
J. O. Lewrr Charged With I bins: the
lUuil* fraudulently.
An effort was yesterday made to secure
bail for J. C. Lowry in the sum of 82.500.
he having been held in that sum by United
States Commissioner Cardo/o. on the charge
of using the mails for fraudulent purposes.
Lowry was held for an examination on the
28th inst.. and a3 bail was not secured yes
terday, he is still in durance. Lowrv'was
arrested on the above named charge by De- !
tective Austin the employ of the Omaha i
road. Officials of the company say that
there is a long history in connection with
Lowry's transactions that has never yet
been made public, beside the familiar de
tails of his arrest and subsequent confine
ment in the workhouse, while employed by
the Omaha in St. Paul. After serving but
a short time in the workhouse, ho was
pardoned by Gov. Hubbard a few weeks
ago, and officials of the road say that this
would hardly have been done by the gov
ernor had he been in possession* of all the
circumstances in the case. Lowry admitted '
his guilt to the officer making the arrest
He has relations in St. Paul, who have al
ways believed him innocent.
Between the Commission and the !
Attorney General.
Considerable talk was created yesterday
by the publication in the (Ji.cjitr: of the rail- i
way commissioners' difficulty In enforcing j
the law in the case of the Milwaukee road,
which refuses in certain cases to allow
private persons to erect elevators upon its '
right of way. As stated yesterday morn
ing, a conference was to have been held
between Attorney General Hahn and the i
commissioners, but this was postponed be- i
cause of the absence in- Chicago of Gov. ;
Hubbard, who was to have taken part in
the deliberations. This conference will be
held later, though just when has not been !
decided, as the commission will be absent '
for a day or two attending a meeting of the i
Fanners' Alliance at Battle lake. Until
after this conference the commission will
not decide just what course It will take.
ACllmp«cat ihe Southern Confed
acy During the War.
The Unity club held an especially inter
esting and well-attended meeting in the ;
lecture room of Unity church last evening, j
After a quartet by the Glee club, the pas- '
tor, Rev. Clay MacCauley, made a few in
troductory remarks and introduced Capt !
George H. Moffett,\vho spoke on The Inner \
Life of the Confederacy.
Capt. Moff«tt premised his remarks by say
ing that he had no set speech to make. Ills
apology for failing to prepare an address was ;
tnat the duties of editorial work did not al- '
low him time to do so. Consequently he
would occupy the time set apart for bis ad
dress with a talk in a conversational way ]
about the inner life of the Confederacy — to
tell how the peoplo felt about tie war— of
what they talked about by their firesides I
or around the camp fire. Something of their |
experience during the four years when they
wero (shut In from the outbids world, tbeir
pod i blockaded ) y Meets and a mountain of i
bayonets and frowning artillery encircling j
their territory, effectually shutting off com- i
munlcatiuu from every direction. So much!
had been written about tbo battles and I
more important historical events of that \
period that ho imagined his audience would
prefer to hear something of the unwritten
liii-tory of the Confederacy.
When the war commenced he was a student j
at Washington college, Lexington, Va. The '
town of Lexington i- in the heart of the great j
valley of Virginia, one of the most prosper- ]
ous and cultured sections of the South. It Is
the seat of two of tho leading collegiate insti
tutions of tin) Soutb — was tho home, and is
the burial place of Leo and Jackson. At tho
time of the breaking out of the war Lexing
ton wag the home of the then governor of
tho state. The-,!- facts are mentioned to how
that the opportunities for ascertaining the
best t-etitiniL-in of 'the Virginia people at the.
opening of hostilities was nowhere better
than at Lexington. That sentiment
was opposed to i-eeua^ion until the last mo
ments. On tho day that the ordinance of se
cession passed the convention in Richmond —
the memorable 17th day of April, 1601 —
mass union meeting was in progress in Lex
ington. A large tlag bad* been raised on a
tall polo in tho court house square. There
was an outpouring of people from the sur
rounding country, the llko of which bad
never been seen. While a venerable Judge
of the supremo court was on tiie stand ad
dressing the multitude with an earnest plea
for the preservation of the old Union,
a telegram was handed blm announc
ing the paaHMJC of the ordinance of I
The announcement was electrical and the |
change in sentiment phenomenal. The state
had spoken — and, educated la the doctrine of
state sovereignty, the peoplo believed that
authority of tho state was paramount. Turn
ing to the ilag which lloatcd so proudly in the
spring breezes the venerable orator directed
it to bo taken down, as it was BO longer the
.symbol of an unbroken Union. Virginia had i
placed herself under another flag and Vir- I
ginia's flay was bis. But as tbo banner was
being hauled down the old man again spoke,
a:nl as theti-urs streamed down his cheek,
with faltering voice said: "Take tbo ilag
down tenderly I <>ys. for th"re are many
precious memories still clustering around it."
That was ii a last time tho star* and stripes
were hoisted at Lexington for four long bloody
years. Tho scene was instantly changed.
Tho sun which arose in tint morning oa a
peaceable crowd congregated together for the
purpose of giving expression to union senti
ments, went down nt nitrht upon a town con
verted into a bristling military camp. Men,
whoso bunds had run up the stars and stripes
in the forenoon, by nightfall bad enrolled
their names M volunteers In the Confederate
service. Thus suddenly was tho curtain
lilted and tho horrors of the four j-ear's
diaina ushered upon the people of Virginia.
Tho aoedc of the cadet corps leaviug the
state military instltutowas next depicted.
The bajb from the military school wero or
dered to the various camps of instruction to
drill BO now recruit*. A bright Sunday
morning, early in May, they were drawn up
in line on College hill. The most modest and
unassuming professor in the school bad been
detailed to command them. As these £00
young men, of tbe best blood of the old com
monwealth, stood there in their bright, new
uniforms, their bayonets gnNapufJrin the
light of the midday sun. and their youthful
faces gleaming in anticipation of the glory to
bo achieved on the field of buttle, little did
they dream how few of them would be lett to
answer to the linal roll-call at Appomattox.
The plain professor who was to command
them rode out from under the portcullis of
tin barrack wall, mounted on tin old sorrel
horsn,and riding to the front of tbo line, raised
his military cap, and in a tone of reverence
paid, "Let us pray." A feeling petition for
the blessing of no God of Battles to rest upon
the youthful soldiers was offered up.
Scarcely hud tho amen been pronounced when
the man of method and destiny wheeled his
horse, gave tho command, "Forward, march,"
and as tho brow of thO hill was reached
turned bis head and silently wavml his cap in
token of affectionate farewell. That was the
last time Stonewall Jackson ever looked upon
Lexington. His next return was when his
body was brought back, just two years after
wards, to be hurled according to his dying ro
quest, in tin- heart of the valley of Virginia,
whore his military fame had been achieved.
of the Booth were subjected to was next re
verted to. Tho ports were blockaded and no
opportunity to import anything. There were
comparatively few manufactures in the
South. Tho white mala population from 19
to 00 was conscripted into military service
Xhfl women and children, with the aid of the
Mamas who remained at homo, woro relied
upon to raise sustenance for themselves and
the army in the field. Tho Confederate
money soon became valueless. In 1862 a pair
of euvalry boots sold for Jl2O, and a common
army pistol for f 150. In the latter part of
the war a barrel of flour sold for (1,000 in
('derate money. People went to market
with their baskets full of money and cainc
bOOM with the market supplies in their pock
ets. After the first year of the war th- sup
ply of coffee cave out, and its the women
would have something as a substitute they
resorted to parched rye and chestnuts, }<y' ( .
i ■■,;.(■ was quite palatable when nothing bet
tor could be had. The ladies had no Sunday
dresses. They wore compelled to make their
own clothing. Commencing itti the wool on
tbe sheep's book, or the cotton ban in the
■aid, the raw material was worked through
the successive stages of carding, epin
ning, weaving and working up by
the fair bands of women who had
been reared la luxury and never bad manual
training. A flannel or linsey dress was all
that was to bo seen. It was a valuable lesson
of economy to the women of tho South, as
they learned to make very fow dresses do
them each season.
Two prominent features of the Southern
side which have never been written about were
the fidelity of the negro race and tbe cou
rageous sacrifices made by tho women of the
South. History had never before presented
the exatnplo of a race in behalf of
whOSO emancipation a great war was
beinjr waged, and yet remaining faith
ful to the interests of the people
who held them in slavery. The white male
population was in Che field and the women
and children left to the tender mercies of the
colored people. Their fidelity was marvelous,
beyond all comparison, and the white South
erner who does not respect tho colored man
or woman wherever met is unworthy the
name of man. The only cause for the late
unhappy war was in a direct interposition of
Providence to bring about the emancipation
of the slaves. Natural forces could never
have done it. If Mr. Lincoln's
had stated that the sole object of the war was
the freedom of the negroes, the probabilities
are that the call would never have been re
sponded to. Yet Providence made the con
flict the agency by which It was accom
plished, and to-day no people had justcr
cause for congratulation over the result than
the Southern people.
The sacrifices made by the Southern women
wore astonishing. They WOTO more loyal to
the Southern cause than the; men and a thou
sand fold more dfflcult to reconstruct. Some
of them haven't been subdued yet. Illustra
tions of tbo loyal attachment of the women
to the Southern cause were given. The influ
ence of their presence was manifested every
where In the bivouac, on the wearisome
inarch, in the jrloomy precincts of the hos
pital — everywhere and under all circum
stances they were the same ministering angels
of hope, faith, charity and goodness. The
lust act in the MM lOW fill drama was
their crowning glory. When the sound
of tho last gang at Appomattox had died
away the conquered banner had boon furled
forovcr.und the C m rederate soldiers returned
to their desolated homes, there were no songs '
of triumph to greet them, no maidens to \
•weave garlands, do triumphal arches, all
was gloom and defeat and humiliation. !
Yet the women of the South aid not receive i
them with frowns and reproach* end averted
faces— but^arisinj? up from amid the ruins of
once beautiful borne*, witb poverty and want
all around — they welcomed us with out
stretched arms, and comforted us witb tender
acts and lovinjr word* a* only noble women
can use. and all the while 6milinjr through :
tears, greeted us as heroes who deserred '
Personal recollections and anecdotes of
Gens. Lee, Jackson and Stuart were given
describing the peculiar characteristics of
each. Lee was the idol of the Southern army.
The soldiers called him "Pap" and "Man
Robert." His traits of personal purity and
unselfishness were illustrated. After the !
battle of Gettysburg he Issued a general order
talcing* all the blame for defeat on himself.
This was characteristic of the man. His was
a sensitive.sympathetic nature and doubtless
died of a broken heart. Gen. Jackson
was described as a man of great
decision of character and peculiar
piety almost amounting to fatalism. He
was a plain, awkward-looking man, but be
neath the rough exterior was a vein of ex
quisite sentiment, which made him a leader
among men. He was a blue-light Presby
terian, and a believer in an overruling Prov
idence. Ho devoted his days to marching
and fighting and bis nights to bis Bible and
prayers. Gen. Jackson's old colored body
servant used to say that whenever he saw the j
old boss get up at the middle of the night and
kneel down to pray be knew
the next day. There was going to be fighting
and a good deal of it. Gen. Stuart, the Con
federate cavalry leader, was described as a
dashinjr young officer witb light hair and blue
eyes, who loved a fight and a frolic equally
ell. He was fond of the song and dance.
He was a type of the chivalrous cavalier with
all the romance and poetry of an ambitious
young nature. The poetic sentiment of bis
nature found expression in music. On the
march be would ride at the head of tha col
umn singing or whistling some favorite air.
When the camp was struck tho banjo was
brought in and the evening hours devoted to
music and dancing. Anecdotes of Stuart were
related. Pope's cavalry once captured Stu
art's bat, in wnicb be wore a favorite plume.
A few nights afterward Stuart raided Pope's
headquarters and captured the general's
dress coat. The next day there was a flag of
truce and an exchange of the captured ar
ticles, Stuart was killed at Yellow Tavern in
ltOi and died as bo wanted to, with the music
of the roaring guns ringing in bU ears.
"The Soldier's Farewell" was sung by
the Glee club, after which Col. J. 11. David
son, who was on the program fora war talk,
was introduced. lie said the program had
been admirably arranged — he always had
liked to follow a Confederate. The tribute
just paid to the loyalty of the women of
the South would meet with a hearty re
sponse in Northern hearts. He said that

evidences of the devotion of Southern
women to the cause. Gen. Butler not ac

The carnival clubs made their second ex
cursion last night. This time they were
tendered a special train of six cars by the
Milwaukee road and mad*; a trip to
Hastings and Red Wing. The btart
was made from the union depot
at 5 o'clock p. m. The Sons of Veterans
drum corps was in the lead, and the portly
form of Judge Chandler of the Milwaukee
road, clad in a M. George's uniform, was
grandly conspicuous in the rauks. At tha
depot three rousing cheers were given
for the judge and the boys tiled
through the gate, and on to the cars. There
were about 250 of them and lew were with
out uniforms. Hastings was reached a few
minutes after 6 o'clock, and a stop of fif
teen minutes was made, the clubs leaving
Die train, forming in ling aad marching
through . the main street. he citizens
of the quiet little town were taken quito by
surprise, but they turned out to see the
fchow and cheered the boy? lustily. The
train reached Red Wing at 7 o'clock. At
the depot the Aurora Scandinavian Ski
club and the Red. Wing cornet baud, with
Mayor Howe and a large body of promi
nent citizcus. were wailing to receive the
vbitors. If the train had been a
law minutes later the Red Wing militia
would also have been there. The people
expected tho visit, and right royally did
they receive the visitors. The streets were
filled with enthusiastic people, with ladies
and gentlemen crowding to the front to get
a squint at tho flannel-mounted forms
of the tobogganers and snowshoers.
The procession was formed with Gen
eral Manager Van Slyke in the lead
and the inarch was l>egun from the depot
traveling to the maiu street. Each man
was supplied with two Roman candles,
which were sent on' as the line swept
through the principal thoroughfare, and the
with parabolic curves of colored light a? it
probably never had been before in that
little city, Tho sight was OM of striking
beauty. At the close of the march the crowd
repaired to Music hall, where an elegant
lunch of cold meats and hot cotfee had been
spread by the ladies of the city, who conde
scended to honor tho occasion with their
presence, and dealt out the edibles to the
boys, who partook of the unexpected re
past with evident relish. The ladies were
cheered repeatedly, in an adjoin
ing room, Capti A. P. Pierce, I tank
Kinguiau and * Frank Bixby set
out liquid refreshments and cigars, which
cost nothing hat the effort of reaching for
them. After the lunch was wrecked the
tables were removed from the hall and the
ladies to the number of titty, who wore the
St. George,s crosses, allowed tho gallant
young sportsmen to swing them into a
walt/.aiul dancing was kept up for about an
hour, when attention was turned to the races
which had been arranged. In the street in
front of Music hall. tho clubs arranged
themselves in two lines between which the
races were to be run over a course about
thirty yards in length with a turn around a
a St. George's banner. In the first runuing
match on snowshoes, there were about
twelve contestants. Robert Wight, captain
of the North Stars and formerly a
member of the Montreal snowshoe club,
was an easy winuer and no sooner had he
reached the goal than he was caught up
and borne triumphantly along the line on
the shoulders of the North Star men in the
midst of wild whoops and yells. The next
was a walking race on shoes over the same
course and again Wight was victorious and
again was he lionized. This ended the
sport and the boys marched to the depot
followed by a line - of citizens and boarded
the train for St. Paul at 9 o'clock arriving
here a few minutes ■ after the clock had
struck 11.
Hon. Senator Stenerson of Polk county,
who measures .six feet and three inches and
tips the scales at 2*20 pounds, has joined
the St. "George club and will accompany
them to Mankato in uniform.
Secretary Tallmadge and Judge Chand
lor made eloquent speeches and promised
Red Wing clubs the choice of position in
the procession if they would attend the
opening of the palace.
When Secretary Tallmadge got up to
make a speech in his long ulster, the ladies
wanted to know it he wasn't Chang, the
Chinese giant they had read about.

The ladies of the Crescent club are taking
commendable interest in the excursions.
Twenty-fivo went to Red Wing last night.
On the return the clubs repaired to the
Windsor and made it their special duty to
bounce Bnzir Armstrong.
When the boys struck tho cold turkey in
the lunch last night, every man began to
look for a Red Wing.
Mayor Howe. Capr. "Buck" Pierce and
Frank Kingnian were severely bounced.
F. B. Norrwh was a victim of the bounc

Dr. McDonald lost one of his snowshoes
at Red Wing.
Judge Chandler of the Milwaukee road is
taking as much interest in the carnival
sports as the most enthusiastic boy. He
praunces around in his uniform like a
young colt in a new harness, but there is a
serene rivalry betweeu him and Secretary
Tallmadge as to who shall play gallant to
the ladies. The latter says he has ap
pointed himself a Ktiard of honor and will
stay in the car with the ladles whenever
they accompany tho boys on their excur
sions and the judge says he proposes to
stand on tho platform and keep an eye on
the secretary to see that he behaves himself
in a dignified manner.
Dr. Murphy said yesterday: "You see.
I didn't join that suow.shoeclub because I'd
have to get shoes so big they'd be in the
way of the procession all tho time, so 1
went in with the tobogganers. 1 calculate
that I can steer a toboggan about as
slick as anybody. I practiced a good deal
when I was a boy, sliding down the cellar
door, and 1 haven't forgot how I did it, by
a long shot."

Terrcnce Martin, a Fargo boomer, was
seen at the Merchants yesterday. Mr.
Martin thirty years ago lived on the bluffs
of West St. Paul and later went to Fargo
where he labored for a living. By lucky
chance he got hold of some prairie land
which was taken In by the city limits as the
boom spread them and he soon became one
of the wealthy citizens and to-day holds his
own with the best of them. Mr. Martin is
an applicant for the Fargo postoffieo and
he has the indorsement of some of the most
influential men in Dakota and Minnesota.
In regard to the business outlook for the
Northwest he said it was bright and the
financial condition of the farmers was f;;r
better to-day than a year ago. He said the
people had their eye on St Paul's ice palace
and would undoubtedly visit the city in
large numbers during the carnival. "The
men." said he. "are not dressing themselves
up in uniforms, but the boys are and they
are practicing walking on snowshoes, the
country up there being too level for tobog
John naggart, sheriff of Cass county.
Dak., a jolh, good-natured fellow, who tips
the beam at 230 pounds, was at the Mi
chants yesterday. "I'm down here." he
said, "on strictly private business. There's
no sensation in it at all. Things are quiet
up our way in criminal circles. We've got
a new court house at Fargo, and it's a
dandy; not so elaborate as yours here, of
course, but a very neat and substantial
building, that will probably be large enough
for Cass county for many year-, to come.
I'm going up to see your ice palace before
1 leave, and I may boom it M much when I
get home that Fargo will build one. When
it comes to a question of material, we beat
the world."
"You've got a better winter here than
we have at Fargo," said 11. F. Miller, a
leading attorney of that place yesterday:
"it has been a little cold up tii«"i ice or
twice, but when I left homo last night it
was mild and promised to continue so.
There is no sleighing there, the ground
being almost bare, and wheels are good
enough for us; but we've got Ice that has no

The L,a*t Sad Kite* Performed at
Wilmington, Del.
Wilmixgto.v, Del., Jan. 19.— With the
bleak and dismal rain turning the lingering
snow on the graves at Old Swedes into v
pulsive slush, the last prayers were said
this afternoon over the mortal remains of
Miss Katie Bayard. The wretched weather
tended to keep down the throng, but there
was enough of it to crowd the antique
church until Ingress or egress was impossi
ble. Among the many present were Secre
taries Whitney and Endicott. Col. Laniont
and Senators Hamilton and Gray, and Sec
retary Bayard, with his eldest surviving
daughter, Mrs. Mabel Warren, leaning on
his arm. was followed by Dr. and Mrs.
Kane, the secretary's sister, and Mr.
Bayard's sons, Thomas F. and Phillip.
The services began promptly at 2
o'clock with the hymn "Jesus is Kisen
from the Dead." The chanting of the
litany and the reading of the last twenty
three verses of I. Corinthians xv. by Rev.
Charles Beck: another hymn, the apostles'
creed and prayer followed, after which the
Rev. Dr. Martin, rector of Trinity parish,
led the sad procession to the grave reciting
the words of the burial service. "I am the
Kesnrection and the Life." The casket
was then slowly lowered to its place In the
family vault. At the head of the tomb
stood Secretary Bayard, his daughters, sons
and sister gazing long and Hngeringly upon
the flower-can coffin, while at the
foot were grouped Senator Gray and others
near to the family with quivering lips. Mr.
Bayard at length turned from the open
grave and the sad rites were over.
