A track 300 yards wide was laid almost entirely bare. Timber and all sorts of improvements were blown in every direction.

Base ball on Thursday: a blizzard on Friday. These were the leading topics of ationconvers on the streets and in the places of public resort on the days named. The change was awful. Men who wore tall hats and perspired in the grand stand on Thursday afternoon, had on their over shoes and winter overcoats yesterday. Those people who are fond of saying that "spring may come late in this state, but when it does come it comes all at once and 1 comes to stay s ?' were no: to be founds yes terday. -Those people, too, who have been kicking because the street in front of their house has not been sprinkled, had also been taken in. Not a single communica tion jumping on the city council for not attending to this matter, and signed by old "Taxpayer" or "Vox Populi" or "Citizen"' had been received at tbe Glot.e office for the twelve hours end ing at midnight. Few people were to be found on the streets yesterday, and such as were out were there because they had to be. It was cold and wet and windy — like November than the last of April, and there was nothing to attract outdoor exer cise. The men about town, who would have contributed some of their wealth to the Short Line trains and the manager of the Minne apolis base ball team, were industriously blowing in this wealth in the down town billiard rooms, and for the pro prietors of these places the storm was the best thing that could hive happened. "Just think of it," said Ed Henderson of the Pioueeer Press. "I've got to send a special to a Detroit newspaper like this: 'Came stopped on account of snow.' They'll think this is the proper place for ice palaces; aud it's almost May, too." In the morning and until past noon there was a cold, drizzling rain that made the city especially cheerless. In the afternoon it began to grow cold and the wind began to blow. The temperature kept dropping, and by the middle of the afternoon there was a full-fledged snow storm in the air. lt grew thicker and came faster toward night, and though all the afternoon it had melted as it fell, at early evening the ground was white. The wind was so high that the storm was blinding, and it was a hard night for any who had to be out of doors. Be ports from the signal office, however, were encouraging. They were to the effect that the storm would be of short duration, and Observer Lyons said that indications were that the weather would be clear to-day. A light fall of rain and snow were reported from the signal stations in Montana, Da kota and Northern Minnesota. The ther mometer registered 25 ° at Bismarck, a fall of 19 ° in twenty-four hours. Other sta tions registered as follows: Fort Garry 20°, Duluth 35°, Helena 30° and St. Paul 48°. . Seven Horses Cremated. New York, April 22.— The district bounded by Twenty-third and Twenty fourth streets, and Third and Lexington avenues, the site of the old Bull's Head market and the place of so-called shelter to a thousand horses, was at an early hour this morning the scene of a conflagration, the like of. which the firemen say they never saw before. At 2:30 a. m. a cabman, driving down Twenty-third street, saw smoke and flames coming out of the stables in the rear of James Donohue's horse shoeing shop at 151 East Twenty-third street, and running back to the stables in Twenty-fourth street, he at once sent out an alarm, but before the firemen could get to the spot the whole building was ablaze, and the entire block threatened. The work of the firemen was seriously impeded by the movements of the frightened horses, who reared and pranced about in their stalls and on the floor in a way that, for the time, de lied all efforts at removal, and by the time a third alarm had been sent out seven big animals, the property of Davis, a cow dealer, had been roasted alive. .The firemen and police did excellent worn in getting the horses stabled in the Twenty fourth street rookeries out of their stalls. Many were led into the street bleeding and scotched, but all except the seven spoken of I were got out alive. As soon as tie stables were cleared the firemen redoubled their at- i tacks on the flames and at 4:15 had them j under control. • The burned horses were | valued at 32,500. The damage to the build- | ings will amount to $10,000. One hundred I horses stabled in the sale stable of So oinin Wehrbach,. adjoining the burning building, were thrown into a wild fury by the file. They were cut loose and driven out, but many: ran into the flames. Four of them were found when brought . in during the forenoon to be very badly" burned. Half of them will probably be shot. The horses were chiefly coach horses, worth on an aver age $400. About half of the horses wore insured. ST. PAUL", SATURDAY MORNING, APRIL 23, 1887. NORTHWESTERN NEWS.

Washixgtox, April 22.— 1t is said at the interior department that the order of the secretary directing the commissioner of the general land office to approve of the contract of one Green for the survey of a portion of the Turtle mountain Indian reservation, if found to be regular, and to order its performance, practically settled the question of the right of settlers to about 1.000,000 acres of land now claimed by the Chippewas. This band now numbers less than 300 souls, and it was their claim which Commissioner Sparks held should be settled before surveys could be proceeded with. Secretary Lamar is of the opinion that the claim of this small band is: too vague to warrant ousting the 20, 000 settlers who have located on the lands, or to pre vent others from settling thereon: that if they had a valid claim congress should be called upon to settle it. While Green's contract covers surveys of only a very small portion of the reservation, the secretary is of opinion that other contracts should be entered in as fast as congressional appro priations therefor will warrant.

Dun & Co.'s weekly review of trade says: Un usual weather hinders trade. Extensive snows late in April, with strips and patches of snow still on the ground around New York, account for not a little embar rassment in various branches of business. The outlook in dry goods is especially affected by unseasonable weather, which adds to the apparent depression caused by unwonted purchases of stocks last month in order to anticipate changes of rates. The market for woolens drags and is un satisfactory, and while cotton staples are firm print cloths are weaker. : Baw cotton does not advance, though receipts are small and wool has been weak, though hope is expressed that the bottom has been touched. Iron is dull at Philadelphia, with prices of some grades marked down there, and at Pittsburg bar is lower and the en tire market feverish, -. with ■ symptoms of- weakness. Wheat Vis held by a reported corner, but has scarcely advanced a shade. Pork products are a little weaker and oil is dull. Coffee has been suddenly advanced a cent by speculative methods. Leather is in better demand, boot and shoe orders having decidedly improved. The rubber market is excited. Stocks have turned downward with au average decline for the week of half a dollar per share. For much of the embarrassment the changes in rail rates under the interstate act are re sponsible. Many think as . the commission apparently does that the railroads have . made the law an excuse for unnecessary ad vance in rates, but the broad fact remains that a great part of the business of the country has been built up under a system of special rates to encourage especial local* ities of trades. The chief intent of the act is to prohibit .such : special favors. An inevitable result is that the industries and business of a great number of places are disturbed. Foreign and interior trade continues fairly active. Exports from New York show an increase of 11 per cent, over last year, but are declining, against an increase of 7% per cent, in im ports, with :an advancing tendency. At some Southern points business is • so dull that country merchants in unusual number are asking extensions, but collections gen erally are fairly prompt Money would be everywhere abundant but for extraoidinary demands in real estate speculation and building. At New York alone plans filed in three months call for an expenditure of 822.500,000 in building, and mortgages amount to 835.600,000 for the , quarter. At the same rate throughout the conntry new mortgages would aggregate 82,000,000.000, and new buildings would cost 81,400.000. --000. * It is not strange, therefore, that any disturbance in the usual trade and protective industry of the county is felt The busi ness failures during the past seven days number:; For the United States 17, and for Canada 28, aeainst a total of 175 last week, and 104 for the coiresponding week in last year. .

He Doesn't Like to Have Kelly and Mo- Oormick Call Him a Slave Dealer, And Says He Eeleased Them (For Big Money) Because They Persisted in Drinking. The Minneapolis and .Detroit Teamg to Try Conclusions this Afternoon, Weather Permitting. Tommy "Warren Doe* TTp Phalen, the Minneapolis Feather- Welght,;in Four Hounds. Special to the Globe. Chicago, April 22.— President Spalding was very choleric to-day over a statement made by McCormick and Kelly, the ball tossers, in which they branded the Chicago club management, as slave dealers. "I propose to tell the whole story regarding Kelly and McCormick, lay bare everything, and I am willing that the people in Chicago who pay good money to be entertained should pass upon the case I make out squarely on its merits," said Spalding to-day. "Last sea son we made a" contract with these two men, agreeing to pay McCormick $350 and Kelly $-00 above their salaries if they would ab stain from the use of malt or spirituous liquors. That contract they violated very soon alter It was mutually agreed upon. I pleaded with the boys personally. It did no good. Then I fined them $25. They paid no attention to it. Indeed, McCormick said to me in this office: 'We drank worse than ever alter you fined us.* If Kelly and Mc- Cormick had stopped dissipation after we fined them we should have paid them the bonus, although they were uot entitled to it. But tbey continued to defy discipline and to VIOLATE THEIR CONTRACT S. We then determined to hold these men to the letter of their agreements. We did so. The action has already produced good results. Our men this year do not drink, and they take pride in keeping up the reputation of the club. Anson has instructions to fine every man who violates his contract and he will remember and have no sentiment about it, We shall no longer endure the criticism of re spectable people because of drunkenness in the Chicago nine. To say that Kelly and Mc- Cormick have *by their dissipated course won the respect of the lovers of the game is to insult the intelligent portion of the community. The Chicago management will aim to secure the highest standard of base ball effort obtainable. In fighting against the encroachment of drink upon the efficiency of individual players, we are simply striving to give our patrons the full measure of enter tainment and satisfaction to which they are entitled. No dollar of stock in our club is owned by a Prohibitionist, but we dont in tend to again insult ladies and gentlemen in this city, or in any other, by allowing men who are full of beer and whisky to go upon the diamond in the uniform of the Chicago club. McCormick and Kelly were released for the reason that they would uot quit drinking. That's the sole reason, and the strength of the Chicago club has not been at all weakened by the absence of such men." Detroit-Minneapolis. Yesterday's weather was scarcely spring like in its character. That gentle northern zephyr was rather suggestive of the north pole than of a base ball bat, and the game between Minneapolis and Detroit did not occur. If spring resumes her sway to-day the game will be played this afternoon, with the batting order as already given. The Milwaukee road will run special trains at 2:45 and 3:15 o'clock— if the weather is fair. Yesterday's postponed game will be played on Monday morningat 10:30 o'clock. On Tuesday the Detroits will play at La Crosse and will go thence to Indianapolis, where they will open the league season. ry.y.. Again Stopped by Rain. Special to the Globe. Dcs Moines, la., April 22.— to-day again disappointed 3,000 people who turned out to see Chicago and Dcs Moines play ball. The game was called in the middle of the second inning. The home team went to the bat and pounded out two earned runs, and in the second scored three more. After Sunday was thrown out at first Chicago got in six tallies, three of them on a wild throw from Whitney to Larocque. The wind howled and rain began falling so fast the umpire was compelled to call the game. ■ , •" •* '/ '7 - v * ■' Cincinnati 5, St. I.ouis 2. Yr St..

About 4.500 people saw the game, but they were not very enthusiastic, as the play was generally slow and the home team obtained a lead early in the game. "Phenomenal" Smith's curves were easily found, while Terry pitched with good effect. Greenwood played a remark able game at second base, carrying off all the individual honors of the day.

IN FOU K BOUNDS. Warren Beats Phalen, the Minneap olis Feather- Weight. Georee Phalen, the Minneapolis feather weight, undertook to face Tommy Warren for six rounds at the Theater Comique last night, but went down under a blow from the little champion's right at the beginning of the fourth round and was cleanly knocked out Phalen is considered very clever and had worked himself Into good condition, but he fought too cautiously and did not get near enough to Warren to laud, so that he got in few returns for the hard slugging he received. He made a tetter showing, how ever, than Billy Smith did upon the same stage two weeks ago, especially as the gloves were much smaller.. Pat Killen acted as referee, and John P. : Clow and Stage-manager Wheeler as timekeep ers. The men appeared to be very evenly matched as they faced each other, Warren looking a trifle heavier, although both claimed to weigh under 118 pounds. In the first round Warren knocked Phalen off his feet twice, landing each time with his right squarely on the chin. He also deliv ered a number of savage .facers with his left, cutting Phalen's right.cheek open, In the second round he did some effective work, his left visiting Phalen's face repeatedly, while his right did good body execution. Phalen essayed to counter, but generally fell short He reached Warren once in the uiouUiahd at the close delivered a swinging blow that called out applause. In the third round he made a better showing and some sharp exchanges at close quarters resulted, with honors nearly even, although altogether Warren had the best of the round, In the fourth lound Warren's right went against Phalen's jaw hard and strong and the latter went to the floor. He was unable to raise himself to his feet. At the expiration of fifteen seconds Warren helped him up and he was cai ried to his corner. 7: :'y : He Was ."Mot Desperate. The advertised fight between Black Pearl and "'Desperate," the Northwestern Sportsman's unknown, at the Olympic last night was something of a farce. It lasted three rounds without any blows being struck, and when time was called for the fourth round, the alleged "Desperate Coon" was so badly scared that he refused to leave his chair. Black Frank afterwards sparred the Pearl three rounds to please the audience. Northwestern Lacrosse League. Special to the Globe. Winnipeg, Man., April 22.— At a largely attended meeting of the Winnipeg Lacrosse club held this evening, the secretary was in structed to open correspondence with the St. Paul club with a view of joining .the proposed Northwestern Lacrosse league. All present were heartily in favor of Win nipeg having an opportunity to win the championship. After Percherons. Special to the Globe. Hastings. April 22. A letter received here to-day states that Leonard Johnson, of East Castle Rock, sailed from New York on the steamer Normandy after another in voice of Percheron horses. Scraps of Sports. The Oshkosh team defeated that of Kala mazoo Thursday with ease. The Oshkosh battery was Krock and Gastfleld. Col. McLaughlin is to wrestle J. C. Corn stock, of New York, at Sioux Falls, to-night. Duluth defeated Wheeling on Tuesday by a score of 20 to 4. ■ A DISASTROUS FLOOD. . Montreal and the Adjacent Valley of tbe St. Lawrence Under Water. Montreal, April 22.— Montreal and the valley of the St. Lawrence in the immediate vicinity are again inundated. An ice gorge caused by an immense field of lake ice went crashing into the basin immediately above "Victoria bridge, causing a movftnent in front ot the city. This soon becoming jammed at the head of St. Helen's island, caused the water to rise four feet in as many minutes, flooding Point St. Charles, Griflintown, St. Paul, McGill and all other low-lying cities. The Grand Trunk shops and yards are under water. ; The Albion hotel and Western house have two feet of water in their . dining-rooms. St. Amies market has four feet of water, and Chaboil lez square has fhe appearance of , an inland lake. The Nun's island is dueler water and 300' head of cattle are | reported drowned. . The Nuns themselves had to flee for their lives in their night clothes. In the poorer quarters of the city suffering is great, as the poor people have no means of obtaining provisions. Belief committees are now being formed. On the south side of the river La Prairie, St. Lambert and Lorgue ville are under water. At the latter place tliose living on the river bank were awak ened by the ice cracking into the houses, carrying away the roofs and the walls. Some of the people had miraculous escapes. The fine residence of Richard Swardon, which cost thousands to build, is a complete wreck. At St. Hilaire three two-story houses are demolished. From the back river the same disastrous intelligence is re ceived. Barns and bridges are carried away, and there is immense loss of live stock. The loss to the business community is heavy, but not as heavy as last year, as many were prepared for the emergency. The blasting experiments have proved a complete failure, and have had no effect on the ice. *jr The water continues to rise in the St. Lawrence river and all low lying portions of the city are flooded. In some places it. has reached a depth of five or six feet including Griffin town and Point St. Charles. McGill street as far as Lamoine street is flooded. St. Amies' market is completely surrounded by water. The pumping stations are all under water. The ice is jammed down the river at Sorrel, and until it breaks the water, will continue to rise. The damage will be enor mous. A large amount of live stock has been drowned and the damage to property is very great. The water in all the flooded parts of the city is rising rapidly. The majority of the citizens look for the worst. They feel cer tain that the water will not ; stop in its course until it has reached last year's mark, and everything appears to indicate that their expectations will be fulfilled.* At a meeting of the city council L this evening committees were appointed to supply suffer ers with provisions, and to wait on the fed eral government * with a view " to having them build two booms and piers to prevent the lake ice from coming down. ~ T yy The Telegraph Fights. Philadelphia, April 22. The great telegraph fight was begun in the United States court to-day, when Messrs. Read & Pettit, John G. Johnson and ex- Attorney General Cassidy presented a bill in equity on the part of the Western Union Tele graph company asking the court to restrain the receiver of the Bankers' A Merchants Telegraph company from proceeding in a suit at law, which is pending on the part of the receiver, to recover in the neighborhood of 31,000,000 from the Western Union, on the ground of certain trespasses by the Western Union in taking possession of and using the wires of the Bankers & Merchants. This case will attract great attention, both from the amounts involved and the parties to the suit Robert G. Jngersoll and ex- Senator Conkling "represent the other side with John W. Barnes and Wayne Mac- Veagh. ■ :. __■ — more Settler* Must Uo. Santa Fe. N.

They are to be taken back to their own res ervation, which was thrown open to settle ment by executive order of President Ar thur, and has since been settled and im proved by over 100 settlers. .President Cleveland's order to vacate the lands will work great hardships on these families, who have their all invested upon this tract, and who have lived here as bona fide settlers. • — ■» — T-- The Salerno Is Safe.

The Strain of a Second Incumbency Might Destroy Health Now Vigorous. if. .','.■;' A Tribute to the Memory of Cal* houn, South Carolina's Statesman. St. Louis, April 22.— A special from Washington to the Republican gives th* following rather startling information: President Cleveland neither wishes nor will accept a renomination. This will be start ling information to the country, setting at rest the important question of a second term, now the subject- of interested consideration in political circles everywhere. The correspondent of the Republican has the highest possible au thority for the statement, however, and it can be depended upon as strictly and en tirely true. It comes from the president himself, who made a declaration to this ef fect on Wednesday to a prominent Demo crat senator from one of the Western states who is on terms of especial intimacy at the White house. The president spoke witli so much deliberate earnestness and such studied emphasis that the senator . with whom he was talking is certain there is no reason to question his perfect and entire sincerity. His manner no less than his word indicated that the declaration was simply the decision of a firm resolution which had resulted from careful considera tion on all phases of the matter. The presi dent he says had not given any intima tion of his feelings to the representatives of the press, for the simple reason that he felt nothing he might say about not wishing or being willing to take a second term would be believed. "I hardly expect anybody* to believe it.'' he said, "except mv wife, "but it is so nope the less." Continuing, ha added: "Everything I do. every appoint ment I make, they think it is to secure re election. On the contrary, I 'am counting the days that remain until my release from office just as if I were a prisoner in con finement" Apparently to make it plain that he had taken no half-hearted resolu tion, the president proceeded to speak of tha exacting and laborious duties which fall to the incumbent of the presidential office when the functions of the presidency ara administered with the scrupulous and minute faithfulness he has brought to tha position. No man, he said, could ENDURE THE STRAIN of such labor, physical and mental, for a longer period than four years without risk of permanent injury to his health. For these reasons he could not think of a con tinuance of his term beyond the four years he has now half completed. Nothing, ha said to the senator, would persuade hint to alter his resolution, which ha had determinedly formed. Ho did not want a second term, and he did not believe there were any obligations of pub lic duty which could require him to forego his persona! wishes. The senator who has repeated this significant conversation to hia friends says that while the ! president was not talking for the purpose of getting his views about re-election befora the public, there was no intimation that he desired his words to be regarded ai confidential. The senator has spoken freely of the interview to personal friends with out any injunction of secrecy, and it is not unlikely this private discussion. of,the mat ter will eventually provoke some' YYY'sYj. FORMAL AND PUBLIC UTTERANCE by the president. The senator is quite sura there was none of the coy strategy of the artful politician, who thinks by this device to appear as being sought -by, rather than seeking the office, in this disavowal of sec ond term ambition by President Cleveland. He is convinced every word is meant for just what it implies, and that it will bo wholly useless to plan the next campaign on the basis of a re-nomination of Cleveland. The president was specific and decided in saying that he could not be induced by any possible consideration to change his mind, that there was nothing in the way of argu ment which could be brought to bear to alter a resolution determined alike by every consideration of personal comfort and hap piness, and by the most conscientious re gard for what could fairly be asked of hint, as a patriotic servant of the people. TRIBUTE TO CALHOUN, Charleston. S. C, April 22.— Henry E. Young, chairman of the commit tee on invitations, has received the follow ing: "I am sorry I must decline the invi tation which 1 received to be present at tho unveiling of the monument erected to the memory of John C. Calhoun> on the 26th inst. The Ladies' Monument association have good reason for pride and congratulation m the complete success of their efforts fittingly to commemorate the virtues and services of this loved and hon ored son of Soutii Carolina. I believe it would be well if all he did and whatever he believed and taught, and all his aspirations for the welfare and prosperity of our republic were better known and un derstood. If this were so much would be found to enlighten and encourage those charged with public duty, and much to stimulate patriotic enthusiasm. The ceremonies attending the unveiling of the monument by his ardent admirers in ' the state which bears the impress of bis renown should furnish an occasion for such instructive illustrations of his char acter as shall inspire the minds of all his countrymen with genuine respect and admiration for his courage, self-abne gation and toleration where the approval of his opinions is withheld and universal pride iv the greatness of this illustrious Ameri can. Yours very truly, Grover Cleveland. ■ called TO ACCOUNT, A Catholic Paper Admonished By Archbishop Corrigan. New York, April 22. — Archbishop Cor rigan has launched another bolt at the friends and supporters of Dr. McGlynn. The Catholic Herald has been a staunch, supporter of McGlynn and has directed some fierce assaults upon the archbishop and Maj. Preston. Now the archbishop lias struck back. He has addressed a letter to the editor of the Herald in which he calls attention to the fact that as the Herald as sumes to be a Catholic paper, it must obey the injunction which the third plenary council placed on all Catholic writers to re frain from attacking publicly the manner in which any bishop rules in his diocese. He concludes his letter as follows: "For some time past utterances of the Catholic Herald have been shockingly scand alous. As this paper published in the dio cese, 1 hereby warn you that If you continue in this course of conduct it will be at your peril." . If this warning is not obeyed, the jour nal in question v ill be publicly* denounced from every Catholic pulpit in the city. As this is the first time for many years that any American Catholic journal has been condemned, this case will cause wide com ment - . 'yY-Y The Strike is Still On. Halifax. N.
