Dcs Moines, Dec. I*2.— Section 1540 of
the code provides for the payment of a fee
of £3 for the prosecution of each case of
persons tried for violations of the liquor law.
This fee is paid by the state, Recently
Mr. [Stone applied to Justice MeMartiu
and asked to be given a quantity
of blanks lot the purpose of tiling Infor
mations against aliened violations of
the law. Supposing thai Mr. Stone only
desired a few of the li,.uiiis. the justice,
turning to the drawer where they were
kept, was in the act of taking out a half
dozen when he inquired: "About how
many do you need?" "Five hundred," was
the reply. This astounded the court and
knocked it out the lirst round. After re-
covering his breath and mental equipoise
the justice, remarked that be hoped it was
not the intention of "Stone to institute 500
cases in his court, and suggested that it
would be much better to divide the cases
between the lour justices and not bring such
before one justice. To this Stone is said to
have replied that he had previously ar-
ranged with Justice Cullender for tiie hear-
ing of five hundred of these liquor prosecu
tions in ids court, making one thousand
cases Stone proposed bringing to tr.al, the
fee lor which, at 55 each, would net Stone
and his associate the comfortable sum of
£5. 000. To Justice MeMartiu this proceed
ing bad the odor of legal robbery, and lie is
alleged lo have declined haying anything to
do with this lucrative and stupen
dous financial operation. The proposed
action of .Stone became noised about and
created quite a ripple of excitement in legal
circles, and finally information of it reached
the ears of County Attorney Baylies, who
proceeded to investigate and learn the in-
exhaustible source from which so many
suits emanated. It is said that a careful
examination developed the fact that feione
had procured the annual report of the sale-
made by the brewers holding periods, and
had proceeded so far as to have
of persons having made pit: chases during
the year. Stone, with an evident eye to
realizing a colossal lee in the aggregate, had
selected each name and, placing it on a
printed form, had prepared to institute a
suit against the brewers in each separate
instance. The record of sales in many
cases shows repeated purchases by the same
person, and the thrifty Stone is said to have
had in view the institution of suit against
the dealer on each separate sale to the same
person. In tins way lie ran the number of
»>uiis up to 1,000, and was prepar-
ing to move upon the works of the
enemy anil the treasury of the county,
when information of the move readied the
ears of Judge Baylies, who, convinced that
it was nothing else than a remoroeless raid
•upon the treasury, made up his mind to
nip it with the frost of adversity, ami pro-
mulgated a notice to attorneys, justices of
the peace and peace officers of the county I
announcing his intention, as prosecuting j
attorney, to oppose such suits. The out- i
look for lame tees being quite unpromising j
the suits are not likely to be brought.

Washington, Dec. 12. — The New York
Tribune to-day has the following pleasant
paragraph on J. J. Hill:
A uiau who lias distinguished himself in
railroad management in the Northwest has
been here for a week. It is J.J. Hill, presi-
dent of the St. Paul, Minneapolis & Manitoba
railroad, who divides with Marvin _*. Huyrhitt,
of the Chicago _; Northwestern road, much of
the credit for the development of the Not
western territory during the past decade.
Mr. Hill is a stocky man, low in stature, with
long" limbs, on whicn he moves about with the
alertness, swing and vigor of a frontiersman. !
His face is round aad re. 1, covered with iron
graj whiskers and mustache, through which !
a pair of thick lips disclose themselves, and j
ever these a large and prominent uo:e is sat.
His eyes, hazel in color, are shrewd and '
piercing. He wears an ordinary business
suit of black, and a derby hat pulled lar
down over his high forehead. His appear.
ance is that of a man of decision and flrm-
ness. accustomed to abso ute dictation. He
is a Canadian by birth, and Started
in] life as poor as Job's turkey. He
once unloaded steamboats at St. Paul.
Now he owns steamboat lines and
railroad lines and has a fortune of several
million dollars. He has great faith in tne
Northwest, and said in conversation that its
development has only just begun. Railroads
are being built all over the Northwest as feed-
ers to main lines of railroad, and competition
for franchises is exceedingly active. A s.ory
came from Washington the other day tuat
Mr. Hill had beeu there to induce President
Cleveland to refuse permission to Mr. Hughitt
of the right of way for one of his roads
through the Meade military reservation in
the Black Hills district, in alluding- to this
Mr. Hill said that it was a pure fiction, and
that he has not seen the president for six
mouths. Iv politic- Mr. Hill is a partisan
Democrat, and has contributed to political
committees large ?ums of money during the
last lew > ears. He declares that Minnesota
and other Northwestern states willjswiug into
tbe Democratic column in the next decade,
and points for proof of his assertion to the
tact that Mr. Blame's majority of .1,000 was
cut down to 2.500 for the Republican candi-
date for governor of Minnesota this year.
By- Grottkau Upon : tie Authorities*
in Milwaukee.
Milwaukee, Wis., Dec. 12.— Paul
Grottkau, the socialist leader recently on
trial for inciting the Milwaukee garden
riots, addressed a mass meeting of 1,500 at
North Side Turner hall this afternoon, bit-
terly attacking the authorities and the
-'capitalistic press." Resolutions were
adopted denouncing the grand jury which
indicted Grottkau and forty rioters and
boy-otters as corrupt, the jurors as having
been influenced and the action of the
authorities as political presumption. The j
resolutions assert that the rioters in May !
were the police and military in having
clubbed inoffensive people. Grottkau will I
be arraigned to-morrow on the charge of
contempt of court and perjury, and there ,
will be an investigation of the charge. The
wtinesses against him were grossly intimi
dated and forced to flee for their lives.

ernor of Dakota. He is holding the com-
mission Recording to an occasional practice
of his, to see what 11111*111 be said or might
happen. Secretary Lamar expected to re-
ceive Judge Church's commission to-night,
but it is still in the president's hands. __.
H. Day called on Mr. Cleveland to-day and
formally withdrew his name. The meet-

tary. L. G. Johnson, who has had tiie

in regard to this sudden turn in affairs. In
explaining the cause of Mr. Day's with-
drawal from tlie race. Mr. Johnson said:
Mr. Da. was not an.'ova a tout the ap
pointment, and only conseuted to allow his
name to be presented at ler urgent solicita
tion by his friends. It became very evident
that there was beingl bad blood engendered in
the party by certain person- in the territory.
Some of Mr. Day's friends in the territory.
entirely unauthorized, had seen tit to at tae _
1 Judge Church's private character, and when
this knowledge ci m • to Mr. Day tie promptly
and stated to him that he would, under no
circumstances, accent the otß.e If tendered
him. and that he earnestly desired the a.>-
pointment of Mr. Church. Mr. Da has an
indorsement that any one might be proud of.
and which I know President Cleveland would
not have required hud it not ion that Mr.
Day requested to be considered as out of tin
"Will the appointment of Judge Church be
made soon?"
"Yes. sir; probably on Monday."
'•What will he the effect in the territory?"
Mr. Day's friends will be oi-a ipointed. but
when they realize that bis course was en-
tirely patriotic, that be thought more ot har
mony in the party than be did of <■>*'• a
honors, they will all Join in giving; to the now
governor an earnest and cordial support.
Judge Church is deservedly popular in the
territory. He has been a resident for over a
year, aid baa made many friends and few
enemies. He is an affable gentleman, an up-
right judge and will he a successful governor.
Judge Church is just 40 years old and
was born in Brooklyn. He is not a sou or
kin of the late Chief Judge Sandford E.
Church, of New York. Judge Church
lived at Hicksville, Long Island, a small
village in Queens county, and practiced law
in Brooklyn with never very great success.
In ISSI he was elected to the state assembly
and served in 18-3-3-4. making a good
record for himself as a reformer, and be

•January. 1845, in Griffin county. Pennsyl
vania, on the line of the old llarrisburg
; .; Pittsburg turnpike, ills early days
\*s-re spent on a ami, where lie became
profficient in the art of raising vegetables
and turning a grindstone. His education
was gotten within the humble walls
of the district M'liool and he
gave up his •studies at the
age of thirteen years, at which time he en
tered the employ of the Pennsylvania rail
road company on a canal as water boy.
During the eighteen years that ho was in
the employ of luis coinpanv he tilled the
•»us of timekeeper, clerk, foreman.
• rvisor, chief clerk, master and col
lector of tolls. He spent seven months and
a half in the army in l__:*-4, and was ser
geant major of Company 1) of the Twenty;
second Pennsylvania cavalry. In 1870 lie
entered the service of the Erie Railroad
company, taking the position of superin
tendent of motive power, with headquarters
at Susquehanna, Pa., and hi* afterwards
had charge of the accounts and supplies of
the Eastern car shops in Jersey City. In
March. 1877. he resigned his position with
he Erie company to go with the Penn

quarters at Philadelphia. He re
mained with this company until
188S, when be resigned to accept
the position of comptroller of the St. Paul

sioner ot this company and on October 20,
IS'sli. he was elected by the board of direc
tors general land agent of the Eastern dis
trict of the St. Paul Railroad company,
which position he now holds. This com-
pany is now building a line of road from
Sauk Rapids to Minneapolis and St. Paul,
involving the purchase of a great deal of
valuable real estate. Matters of this kind
render the position of Mr. Postlethvvaite a
very responsible and important one. He
is a member of the board of education and
holds offices in several local organizations.
Mr. Postlethwaite is a man of shrewd busi-
ness qualifications and undaunted will, lie
is pleasant and affable and the type of a
gentleman that one is always pleased to
meet. He is only .41 years of age, enjoys
first-class health and is as amb tious as he
was at the age of nineteen. It would not
be strange if he kept on rising in the scale
until be stands at the head of the great

Quite an interest is being worked up
among Russians over Dakota and the op-
portunities offered for getting homes there.
Last spring a great many Russians came
over from their country and settled in colo
nies throughout North Dakota, and they
have been corresponding w.th their friends
at home. This has had the result of bring-
ing fresh parties of these people over the
water and a heavy immigration from the
snowclad district of Russia is looked for in
the spring. Yesterday a party of forty
Russian emigrants, men, women and
children, were sent out over the Northern
Pacific road to the town of Hebron, in Mor-
ton county. Dakota, one of the largest
Russian colonies west of the Missouri
river. established last year. These
were as tine-looking emigrants as had been
sent out over the line for many months,
according to the statement of Emigration
Agent Groat. Althoug i the regular season
for it has closed, the tide of emigration still
continues to flow into the Northwest. This
is due to work done by Northwestern citi-
zens, who employ their spare time in the
East in talking up the apvantages of the
Wot. Robert Hunter, of ('arriugton. Dak.,

Washington Territory has a population of
about 80.000. of which 5,000 are Indians.
The area is about the same as that of Mis-
souri, and yet there are nearly 1.000 miles
of railroad laid in that territory, and there
are railway schemes under way that before
another twelve months are past will give
her a railroad mileage of nearly 3.000
miles. This speaks well for a territory so
young and sparsely settled, and shows that
her people are full of push and enterprise.
The ownership of the rails laid on the soil
of the territory is divided between three
railroad corporations, in the following pro-
portion: 'Northern Pacific system. 6.4
miles; Oregon Had way and Navigation
company, 203 miles; Columbia & Puget
Sound railway system. 62 miles.

Various Item, of Interest From the

The Elk Point Courier, in Cuion county, is
able to gather pointers that lead to the con-
elusion that the Milwaukee road desl.ns to
run a line from that point down south across
the bottom, and bridge the Missouri at or
near Westfleld, and run to Sioux City on the
lowa Bide. It recalls the fact that the line
surveyed and right of way of the Great
Southern or Tower City line has fallen into
the bands of the Milwaukee, and that Elk
Point will be tbe natural point tor the railroad
The suggestion is credited to E. A.Williams,
the Bismarck legislator, that as some of the
members-elect of the legislature are also
members of the Huron state legislature, it
may be necessary to exact of them, '. before
taking their seats at Bismarck, an ironclad
oath, such as was required of members of
congress from th- South in the reconstruction
period. POBBIS-S
The Baptist university, Just , put , in oper
ation at Tower City, used the Tower city
hotel, which has been donated it, as a basis
of operations. Accommodations in the Duild-
|ng are provided for twenty or more students.
It has three teachers, and It Is believed will
rapidly expand into one of the leading col-
legiate institutions of the territory.
A heavy lobby of the friends of South Da-
kota statois expected soon to appear at Wash-
ington to work for the passage of the Hill
bill if the. can secure an amendment elim
inating the provision requiring a majority
vote in favor 'of division in both the South
and North. With that retained they would
have no Interest In the bill, as they know the
North will vote nearly solid against division. I
They think that division would give them a
chance to run in the state equipment already
prepared in the South.
The full vote of the territory overruns the
estimates, reaching 105,700, including that in
Cass not cast for delegate. Taking the cen
sus of 1885 and the vote of 188 us a test, this
shows a population of but little less than
495,000. it is near enough for all practical
purposes to call it a half-million. Those fig-
ures will be reached long beforo it becomes a
The revolution in the Pembina district at
the election was chiefly due to the hope of
free trade with Canada. If something is not
done by the Democrats in this direction the
majority may be us lar.e the other way as it
has been heretofore. They want the line ob-
literated for trading purposes.
The business men of Amour are making an
effort to secure the opening of the Yankton
Sioux reservation, which forms the southern
boundary of Douglas county. The trade of
the town would be greatly improved by hay-
ing the country settled up with white people
in place of the few aborigines.
Mandnn parties propose to give the North-
crn Paoiflc a bonus of .10.UOO to build a
branch down to the Black Hills. It is prob-
ably but a question of time when there will
be connection from the Hills with some point
on the Northern Pacific.
That the Marquis de Mores designs to re-
