- I PUBLISHED EVEIIY DAT IN THE YEAH. j LEWIS BAKEK. j ST. PAUL, SATURDAY. APRIL 3, lit. A TEST CASE. In the discharge of their ollicial duties tho railway commissioners have notified the officials of the Milwaukee line that unless the provisions of the law concerning the building of warehouse! are complied with by that company, they will at once institute legal proceedings to enforce the penalties which attach to a violation of tho law. li is pretty well understood that the railway officials will disregard the order In order to make a test case. In asmuch as this feature of the railway law is to be contested on the ground of unconstitutionality it is fortunate that the question is to be brought to an imme diate test. It is to the interest of the state to have the question judicially determined at once. If the law in its present shape is valid it should be enforced rigorously. If, for any reason, it is invalid, the fact ought to be known, so that the next legislature may have an opportunity to remedy the defects. DAKOTA'S PUTUUE. It is now apparent that there will be an unusually large Immigration to the "North west during tho coming summer. Never before has the immigration boom com menced so early in tin 1 season as this year. The railroads are already doing a large business transporting immigrants, and ar rangements have been made ahead for the largest business In this line during the sum mer that has been done by the railroads tor many a year. This immigration is princi pally rom the New England states — Con necticut and New Hampshire furnishing the largest proportion of it. The Eastern states hud it necessary to seek an outlet for their overcrowded population. No section offers such tempting Inducements to the hardy sons of New England as the North west, nor is there any section from which the Northwest could obtain a more desir able immigrant population than from New England. The New Englander brings with him his habits of industry and frugality, his social refinement and excellent moral train ing. S ■ that taking it altogether then is no class of people In the world better suited to laying the foundation of a new society than the New Englanders. The Northwest is fortunate in not only the promise of a large increase of immigration this year, but also iv the character of its new settlers. A good portion of this immigration will come to Minnesota, but the bulk of it is destined for Dakota. The discussion in congress over the question of Dakota's ad mission lias resulted in giving the territory a magnificent advertisement. It has called the attention of the country to the wonder ful resources of this future empire. In the minds of the majority of the American peo ple the territory of Dakota was nothing more than a stretch of land in the far-away Northwest, a part of the arid waste marked down on the map fifteen years ago as the Great American Desert, until the illusion was dispelled by the controversy in con gress over the proposition to admit the ter ritory as a state in the Union. Now all the world knows that Dakota is a vast area of fertile land, already occupying the position Of importance to the great Northwest that Texas does to the Southwest, and destined within a few years to a place of power and wealth second to none of the sisterhood of states. Although an act of injustice is done to both Dakota and the federal Union by keeping the territory out of the Union, still so far as Dakota's development and material Interests are concerned it could very well afford to have congress fight over its admission for several years to come. The advertising the territory receives will more than compensate, in a material sense, for the delay in performing an act of jus tice. Now that the prospect for rapid in crease of Dakota's population and the de velopment of its resources is brighter than at any previous time, it behooves the people of the territory to wisely improve the splen did opportunity which is presented to them. In the first place they want to discourage the spirit of reckless speculation which is so apt to follow in the wake of a boom. They want to hold the immigration which is now coming within their borders, and not allow it to be driven away by the meth ods of a reckless and unscrupulous class of wildcats who always pop up in new coun- ' tries to fleece the settlers. They want to interest themselves in a movement to give security to their system of land titles. The suspicion has gone abroad that owing to a systematic practice of land swindling there are but few good titles to lands in the territories. However unjust this suspicion may be, the fact remains that it exists. So far, then, as Dakota is concerned, the people of that territory want to relieve •themselves of any suspicion which may attach to them in common with the people of the other terri tories by forming organizations among themselves to crush out the land swindlers wherever they put in an appearance. Let eacn settler consider himself ■ detective to aid the government in ferreting out and exposing land frauds. When it is once published to the world that this spirit pre vails among the people of the territory, there will be no difficulty in inducing im migrants to come among them to make per manent homes, and they will be a desirable class of immigrants, too. The people of Dakota should realize that they are now laying the foundation of what a generation or two hence is to be the empire state of the West, and the work should be well done. THE POTATO ROT. One of the benefits resulting from the establishment of the agricultural experiment station in connection with the Wisconsin state university is the publication from time to time of the reports on fruits and cereals grown on the experimental farm. These reports are sent free to all the farm ers of the state and they are thus enabled to judge of the value of the different varie ties of grains and fruits without being sub jected to the cost and loss of time involved in making the experiments. The last published relates to the experiments made during the last season with oats and potatoes. Of seventeen different varieties of oats experi mented with the White Schonen gave the best results. Both as to yield and quality it surpassed the other varieties, and the same report come.-, from the Ohio experi mental station. Next to the White Schonen conies BOllard's Kansas Hybrid, the Rust Proof, the White Belgian, White Canadian and Clydesdale. Among the potatoes the Alexander's Prolific gave the largest yield In bushels to the acre, as it did in weight. The White Star gave the next largest yield In bushels, while the Pearl of Savoy was the next .in weight. The Early Harvest and Sunrise stood high in the list of extra po tatoes. The White Star was the only one Of tho fifteen varieties experimented with that was proof against the rot. The potato rot was so general throughout the Northwest last fall that any Informa tion concerning this disease will be of inter est to the farmers. From a carefully pre pared paper written by Mr. Euwix F. Smith of the botanical laboratory of the University of Michigan we learn that the potato rot is a contagious " disease which spreads from plant to plant and from field to field with great rapidity. The disease attacks the tops as well as the tubers and is duo to the presence of a minute par asitic fungus, which is a complete plant in tself, being capable of growth and repro duction. . The preventive measures which Mr. Smith suggests are, first, the complete removal and destruction of the tops and de caying tubers left in the Held after harvest; second, to store the harvested crop in dry cellars and sorting over several times, care fully removing from the bins the tubers which show the least sign of decay; third, to plant the next season only tubers which are sound outside and inside; fourth, choose a light and dry soil for planting, as the growth of the parasite is favored by moist ure. It will look very much like a selfish and unauthorized exercise of superior strength it Jtusslu carries out her throat to occupy Bulgaria In caso Alexander BOM not con sent, as Kus»la demands, to rule Roumolia for the years instead of for life.

It turns out that there is no report that English naval contractors arc Interested in the building of now men-of-war for this country.

His hair, gray as a badger, was half concealed by a fur cap. His eyes, gray also, wandered constantly and rested for no great length of time on any individual or object. Ills move ments were quick and nervous; his w1.0.e demeanor being that of a man who is suffer ing from some mental disorder. Ho asked for a compositor, giving a certain name, and, on being informed that no such man held a case, started down stairs and out on the street In a dazed condition. V Such was tho appearance of Will H. Kor nan. tlie former editor of the Okolona States, Mississippi, who for a short period enjoyed considerable notoriety In Re publican neswpapers on account of his rabid editorial utterances. In giving an account of bis location in tbo Boutti, he said that in 1575 he published a paper In Urbana. Ohio, but felt obliged to leave the state because the Cincinnati En quirer made fun of him and bis utterances and invariably compared him to George Francis Train. He disliked this public ridi cule of the leading Democratic newspaper of Ohio, and so, 6uddcn'y, gave up his paper and started for the South. He located at Okoloma and taught school and wrote for the States. v "The first editorial 1 ever wrote," said he, "that created a sensation was partly an acci dent. It was the day for the paper to come out. Tbo boy came up and said they wanted about two sticks of matter before they could make up the forms and go to press. I didn't know what to write about. I looked on the desk and in the drawers to find something. The boy said that it was about time to go to press, so that it would be a good thing to make whatever I would write as "fat" as possible. The only thing I could find was a paragraph from the Washington Republican. It said— for I can repeat it now— that the Re publicans had to admit that eighteen years after the surrender of Lee the rebels had captured Washington. I paste*', the clipping on a piece of white paper and then wrote under it 'Yes,' and made a second lino and Kite ' Thank God;' another line, 'We rebels have captured Washington;' another lino, 'And wo ineau to rule or ruin again,' etc." V He said the Republican papers began to copy it and the paper was quoted everywhere by Republicans. Soon afterwards the owner of the States requested him to resign and ac cused him of being in the pay of Republicans. He severed his connection with the paper in ISSO, and came, up to Lc Mars, la., and started to run a paper similar to the States, but the Le Mars Democrats forced him oat of town. Since that time he has been a wan derer on tho face of the earth and has trav eled over the major part of the United States. Last September he got work at Northwood, Dak., and remained there until the past month. He is now on his way to Ashton, la., where ho expects to secure a position on a country weekly. Tub Onloukek.

McLuughliu in a mixed wrestling match in the Exposition rink next Monday night, ar rived from Marlboro, Ma—.. yesterday morning, and was the. first one to register under the head of Thursday on the book at the Ryan. He mmmi hands with Me- Laughliu in the rotunda, and the two giants chatted and smiled in a way that would uive the casual observer no Idea that they were soon to drop apparently all bonds of friendship and struggle for honors that would place one of them at the head of the ranks of wrestlers. When seen by a Glouk representative Dufur stated that ho never was feeling better in his life, and as McLaughlin makes the same statement re earking himself, it is safe to conclude that the match will be a "tug of war.'' Dutur says ha has come here to win the champion ship honors if !>ossiblc, and McLaughlin alii mis that he will retain them if possible. These circumstances argiw that the match will be no hippodrome, but a straight "up and up" struggle for "blood." Arrangements for the event were com pleted as far as possible yesterday. Prof. C. O. Duplessis of Minneapolis will be re quested to act as referee, as both men are willing to abide by his decisions. Mc- Laughlin and Dufur visited the exposition rink and looked over the ground on which they will meet. A stage will bo erected near the center of the building which will afford every one in the gallery, dress circle or parquet, a clear view of the contestants while at their work, ana spectators will be compelled to keep oil the floor and thus avoid obstructing the view of the people occupying the seats. A corps of police officers will be present, and all dis orderly demonstrations will be ruled out, as well as smoking. It is intended to make it a clean and interesting exhibition of strength and athletic science. The opera chairs at the south end of the building will be reserved for ladies and their escorts, and it is understood that a lance number of the former have signified their intention of being present The price of admission has been placed at Si a ticket, and it is probable that these figures will tend to keep out the disorderly and obnox ious element. - 1 m:aici.vc; THE end. The Skatiu? Rare at Exposition 111 Ilk to Close To-.MgIM. A larger audience than heretofore greeted the skaters at the Exposition rink last night, and it being ladies'* night a fair sprinkling of the fair sex was noticed in the galleries and ' parquets. The skaters started at 7:30 sharp and struck a twelve mile gait, which they held through the first hour, Snowden occasionally spurting ahead of the others to keep up the interest. The men kept well together during the entire three hours with the ex ception of Snowdeu and Cole. The former, by putting in good work. gained four laps on Boyst, who holds second place, which put him one just one mile ahead. Gamble and Boyst are still working for seooud place, and it Is ex pected that to-night there will be some hard work done by both of them. Snowden is sure of the race and will probably exert himself to make his lead greater than it now is. as in the three hours before the finish of the race it will be impossible for either Boyst or Gamble to reach him unless he should suffer some misfortune. Cole, who has held on through out the race with admirable spirit, has been playing in hard luck. Tuesday night he fell, cutting his knee and severely spraining his . ankle, and last night his skate broke, necessitating his losing several laps, and he will be obliged to take last place in the race. The race ends to night at 10:30. Following is the score as it now stands: 5 » 5 X Q~ ° 5 5 ■ B I Hours. | * | S ?

Matt Gallagher; secretary. M. Galla- ! gher; members of the club, Dan Ahem. ] The club had at one time another member, whose name is Shadrick, but who is now i believed to have left the city. When this latter member was unceremoniously bounced from the position of superintendent of i construction of the postoflice, the club met and unanimously passed a set of - resolutions condemning P. li. Kelly who was held responsible. The "club' has : since taken no prominent part in politics, but has recently decided to make its in fluence felt A meeting was held in the ; back room of a tea aud coffee store on Nicollct avenue, at which were adopted a , set of resolutions prepared by that Demo- J cratic war horse, Col. 11. G. Hicks, who is | supposed to be in the direct line for the city attorneyship if Mayor Pillsbury is ro- ] elected. These resolutions appeared in the ■ Republicans papers and a meeting was also called to be held under the auspices of the "club" at Tobin's rink in the First ward last evening. At 8 o'clock a large audience tilled the rink to its utmost capabity. A gentleman with a gorgeous mustache called the meeting to order. Some one In the au dience ruse aud said, "Mr. chair man," whereupon the crowd with one accord as one man cried •'rats." and continued to cry "rats" and "chestnuts" for about twenty minutes. At this juncture a band which was in atten dance, thanks to the Republican campaign funds, commenced playing a quickstep, and the crowd marching upon the stage bodily tired the speaker from the platform. Charles A. O'Conuer, who was announced , to speak in opposition to "Glenn ism" did not appear and some one said be had announced himself as entirely satisfied with the nor- ' ination of Ames, which fact probably ac counted for his absence. J. E. Stetle was called for, but as he had always been a Re publican he probably found it impossible to appear as a "dissatisfied Democrat, at any rate he didn't show up. CoL 11. L. Gordon, whose best check is for Col. Clark was also absent, meanwhile the chorus of "rats" and music by the band continued. No speeches were made and the protest against the "inetheds of Glenn" was not heard.

The meeting 1 of the Minneapolis Trades and Labor A»«f»nibly. The regular meeting of the Trades and Labor assembly last evening was largely at tended. It was reported that the Short Hour league at a meeting held Wednesday evening decided to ask that a day's work shall be reduced to nine hours after May 1. The league embraces the Plasterers', Paint ers', Bricklayers'. Carpenters' and Joiners' Union No. 34, Stone Masons', all of whom have agreed to make a united effort and to stand by each other in securing the re duction. *It was decided to call a public meeting for a discussion of the proposed es tablishment of a second state penitentiary. A delegate reported that the Union Stone and Building company has issued checks to its employes for work performed, which have never been paid. The checks were is sued weekly, payable the 10th of the coming month. No checks were paid after Oct. 10, and some of the employes were forced to submit to a discount of 60 per cent in order to get them discounted. Dec. 10 •200 checks were presented which were not paid. The families of the men were rep resented to be in a destitute condition, their children almost naked and crying for bread. G. W. Archer, a contractor, took work amounting to $1,000. and is still waiting for his pay. This statement caused considerable indignation and lead to a discussion of the inadequate protec tion of the laws intended to secure the payment of wages. A committee was finally appointed to wait upon H. X. Holway. secretary of the company in behalf of the employes. Similar complaints were made by the em ployes of the Minneapolis Bottle Manufac turing company, who have been given checks for their labor in lieu of cash. The checks were drawn upon the Security bank and payment was refused. In this instance the case was laid upon the table, it appear ing that the glass blowers were not union men and had signed a contract which for bid their joining labor organizations. The resolutions printed in yesterday's Globe in relation to the letting of city contracts for the furnishing of water pipe were adopted. POLICE GATHERINGS.

The Premier's Name Dishonored at a Great Meeting. An Ultimatum to Bo Given Greece by the Powers. Gladstone Condemned. • Loxpox. April 2. — A great mass meet ing was held this afternoon in Guild hall to protest against the granting of a parliament to Ireland. The lord mayor presided. Sir John Lubock, Liberal member of parlia ment for London university, moved the adoption of a resolution condemning Mr. Gladstone for his intention of "handing Ireland over to Mr. Parnell, whom he previously denounced." A workingman arose and offered an amendment to Sir John Lubbock's resolution, but he was howled down, and the resolution was car ried amid wild enthusiam. But 200 per sons in the immense audience voted in the negative. The Pall Mall Gazette says Glad stone refuses to modify is Irish policy and the result will be that the county will" have neither home rule in Ireland nor Mr. Glad stone. Mr. Gladstone says he means to force the issue and bring about his defeat as soon as possible, contented to sacrifice power in his final efforts at pacification. The Freeman's Journal threatens that if the Scotch members help to defeat Mr. Gladstone's home-rule bill the Parnellites will adopt a policy of relentless opposition to every Scotch measure which may come before parliament. THEY WOULD CRUSH GREECE. Sir Horace Rumbold, the British minister to Greece, has been ordered to join with the other foreign diplomatic representatives at Athens in sending to the Greek govern ment a final strong remonstrance against Greece's war-like attitude. This remon strance will bo tantamount to an ultima tum, and If Greece ignores it the foreign fleets will act forthwith. All the foreign squadrons in the waters of Greece are being hastily reinforced. It is believed that the statement in relation to the government of Ireland which Mr. Gladstone promised to make on Thursday next will be again postponed. At the guild hall meet- Ing at every mention of Mr. Parnell's name the audiance hissed. The name of the premier was treated in the same way every time any speaker used it. There were cries of "Gladstone is a lunatic." All the speeches were intensely patriotic and the speakers were loudly cheered. Mr. George Potter, a Liberal, ventured to pro pose an amendment to the Lubbock resolu tion to the effect that Mr. Gladstone was entitled to the confidence of the audience and the British public, but his voice was drowned by groans and cries of "Go home," "Turn him out." The meeting closed with three cheers for the qHeen, after which the assemblage left the hall singing "Rule, Britannia." anxious PRESBYTERIANS. A deputation of Irish Presbyterians had an interview to-day with Mr. Merley, the chief secretary for Ireland. Replying to a statement made by the Rev. Dr. Martin, to the effect that a parliament in Dublin would be hostile to the rights of the Irish Presby terians. Mr. Merley expressed the opinion that Mr. Gladstone's measure would make ample provisions for the security of every religious body in Ireland. The deputation afterward had an interview with Mr. Cham berlain. Mr. Gladstone has declined to re ceive the deputation. Foreign Flashes. The majority of M. Pasteur's Russian patients will leave Paris for homo to-day, their wounds having 1 entirely healed. Four, whose wounds havo not yet cicatrized, will remain in the hospital fur several days looser. The French government has given orders for the immediate dispatch of the third naval division to the Levant. The lron-clads Marenjro and Vauban left Toulon to-night.

Sonnescheim, rabbi of the largest Jewish temple in the city, the Ilaareemeth, re signed last evening after a continued pas torate of seventeen years. Dr. Sonues cheim is in his denomination a national character, and is known all over the coun try because of his liberal views. He has fraternized very freely with Christian pas tors of this city, and has several times within the past two years preached from a Christian pulpit. His resignatiun has been caused by the election at the animal meet- Ing of the members of the congregation last Sunday of a board opposed to him. and it will take effect six months hence if the con gregation docs not sooner relieve him. Prominent, But Wicked. Chicago, April 2. — decree for $6,000 alimony was to-day forwarded by Judge Sbepard to Mrs. Mary Woodworth against her husband, Dr. Wilbert Wood worth, who deserted her fifteen years ago, since which time he married, robbed and deserted another woman and is now under the name of Dr. William 1. Wood, living with his third wife at Indianapolis, where he has a large practice and has been regarded as an example by men. His first two wives casually became acquainted in Chi cago, and one day each confidentially showed their husband's photograph to the other. Woodworth is an ex-member of the Vermont and Kansas legislatures and was a judge In Michigan. ,-.' . ..^: A Bad Hallway Wreck. Special to the Globe. Dubuque, la., April Forty head of hogs and nine head of cattle were killed in the wrecking of alive stock train three miles east of Galena this afternoon. The accident was caused by the rails spreading, throwing eight cars off. The destruction barred the passage of all trains, consequently no passengers "or malls arrived to-night. The wreck is the worst one the road has had in a long time. Wrecking forces are at work at both ends of the wreck. Philadelphia street railway employes hare ratified the action of the arbitration commit tee, and all fears of a tie up are ended. 'TWAS MANSLAUGHTER Says the Jury in the Owe of the State Against Sam McFar land. A Stay of Proceedings Granted for Thirty Days — How the Pris oner Takes It. Ho Speaks Coolly and Again Pro tests That lie Is an Inno cent Man. The jury in the McParland murder case rendered a verdict at 2:80 o'clock yesterday atternoon alter being out twenty and one half hours. These twelve men who held the life of MeFarland in their hands found him not guilty of murder as charged, but pronounced him guilty of manslaughter in the second degree, the verdict being an nounced by George R. Monfort, foreman. Judge Simons granted a stay of proceedings for thirty days at the end of which time McFarland will receive his sentence. The penalty for this degree of manslaughter is from one to seven years in the penitentiary. It was ascertained that the reason the jury took so much time to come to an agreement was that two jurors were for acquittal and persisted in their behalf for some time, but finally compromised the matter on the verdict rendered. The verdict occasioned little surprise to anybody who has paid at tention to the evidence given in the case. m'fakland interviewed. MoFarland was seen in his cell at the jail last evening by a Globe reporter and talked very freely concerning his case when asked how he felt over the result of the trial. He said that he had been perse cuted by some of the people here. "It looks to me." said he, "although the hon orable police thought they were prosecu ting a guilty man or they would not have used me as they have done. They made a great mistake in holding me guilty" and try- Ing to scrape up evidence to convict me of a crime of which I am as inno cent as yon are. A part of the testimony atraiust me came from people whom luts of folks here in St. Paul would not believe under oath. It occurs to me that I have been convicted of manslaughter in the second degree for taking a few drinks of whisky, visiting a hovel of ill-fame and be ing robbed. It looks hard for a man to set orVthe stand and tell as near the truth as his memory will let him and not be believed. If I uttered a word which was not true, then I never told the truth in my life. I have always been a hard-working boy aud a law-abiuing citizen. I don't believe that of all my employers, one would say a word against me or believe me guilty of murdering a man for a twenty-dollar note. I told my counsel that he could obtain all the depositions he wanted concerning my good character, for I am well acquainted with Gen. Logan, who got my appointment as messenger in the treasury department, and with Congressman llouk of Tennessee, where I was born, and with other promi nent men. among them Mr. Speck of St. Louis, who was once my employer. But, of course no depositions were needed, as nobody can say anything against my pri vate character. I worked in the treasury department at Washington from January, ISBS until June 25 of that year, when I re signed and went to Winnipeg and was em« ployed as porter on the Canadian Pacific, because times were good there and there was much more money in railroading than in the treasury department. EXPECTED ACQUITTAL. I did not expect anything else from the trial than acquittal. I thought the police would find the guilty party in preference to convicting me. but they just sat down in the police station and never made any at sempt to find the guilty one, They advised me to plead guilty of a crime that I did not know was committed uutil I got to the police station. 1 did not find fault with the jury, for there was considerable evi dence against me. Considering that F raker said he saw me have a razor, and that a man got killed there was possible cause to believe him. 1 think that poor man was dying when I went through that door. When asked if he intended to abide by the result of the trial. MeFariand declined to answer, and referred the reporter to his counsel. He said Mr. Lawler had been a good frieud to him, better than many he had befriended, in fact the lawyer had been the best friend he had during the trouble, except his brother. His colored friends here had stood by him well, although none of them were under any obligation to him. McFarland said his parents were both dead, but he had one brother in Washington who had worked in the treasury department since 18S0 as watchman, then passed the civil service examination and became clerk in the interior department. He was a Re publican and had been discharged since the present administration begun. lie was now keeping a restaurant in Washington. Mc- Farland talked over all the circumstances of the night of the murder with great free dom, but firmly maintained his inuocence. THE LOYAL LEGION. An Interesting Meeting of tbe Order Promised— \n Invitation. The Minnesota commandery of the mili tary order of the Loyal Legion will hold a meeting at the Ryan Wednesday evening, April 7, at 3 o'clock. The following appli cations for membership will be acted upon: Lewis Addisou Grant. Minneapolis, brevet major general, U. S. W; Frauces Henry Millijrau, Wabasha, Minn., assistant surgeon. Tenth Minnesota infantry volunteers: Fred erick Paul WrißbT, St. Paul, son of Maj. \V . M. Wright, surgeon. Seventy-ninth Pennsyl vania infantry volunteers; Arthur Elliott Clark, St. Paul, lieutenant of the First Con necticut light battery. A paper entitled The Blessines of War will be read by Hon. Eugene M. Wilson of >nnr.eapolis, which promises to be very in teresting. Since the organization of the Minnesota commandery, one member has been transferred and one has died, leaving a present membership of ninety-five. The total membership of the order throughout the United States is 3.371, 800 of whom joined since January, 1885. An invitation has been received by the Minnesota commandery from the com maudery of California to visit them during the twentieth national encampment of the G. A. B>i which will be held in San Fran cisco during the coming summer. It is probable that a large number of the mem bers will accept the invitation. Another Patent Suit. Suit was begun in the United States cir cuit court yesterday by the Minneapolis Harvester works against the McCormick Harvesting Machine company to prevent infringement of certain patents on harvest ers. Plaintiff applies for an injunction to restrain defendant from infringing patents of John F. ApDleby, assignor to the plain tiff., and for a writ of subpoena to defend ant to appear and answer to the suit and to abide by the decision of the court. The complaint alleges the point of controversy to be as follows: *'In combination with a knotter, a cord holder mounted on a swinging frame pivoted to oppose its weight to the stress of the cord, a projecting arm from said frame, and a cam upon a revolving shaft adapted to force said holdir down after tbe knotting operation ter minates." The complaint recites that these patents were issued to Appleby while the applica tion of one Jewell, assignor to the McCor mick company, was in the patent office; that the latter procured an interference and the matter was tried and appealed and tried again, each time exhaustively, and that de cisions were all in favor of plaintiff, but that the defendant still maintains his right to use such patent and continue to attach the appliances to harvesting machinery, thereby infringing on plaintiffs rights and injuring his business. The plaintiffs at torney is John R. Bennett of New York. Probably True. From all that could be learned yesterday the rumor published in the Globe that Mr. James Hill had purchased property on St. Anthony hill on which he will erect a mag nilicent mansion is true, and Mr. Hill, it is said, will erect a home that will reflect credit on himself and bring honor to St. Paul. Hon. P. H. Kelly denies the rumor that he is to remove from Dayton's bluff. A wallet, like a jackknife, is only useful when open. — New Haven News.
