BOUNCING THE BOUNCERS.
It will surprise some to learn that
what is considered a sport and amuse
ment during the winter in the North
west is a punishment in the French
army, but such is the case, nevertheless.
The other day a lieutenant of the Third
cuirassiers became enraged at the ina
bility of a young cuirassier to control
his horse. As a punishment lie ordered ■
the man to be tossed in a blanket. While
this punishment.was being inflicted the
blanket split and the victim fell to the
ground. His skull was crushed by the
fall and he died instantly. This should
be a warning to the snowshoe clubs of
St. Paul to take every precaution while
bouncing during the carnival season to
avoid accidents that may result fatally,
or at least, seriously injure their victim.
Clubs should make sure that their
bouncing blankets are strong, and
should not labor under the impression
that it is just as safe to toss a man
twenty feet in the air as it is to throw
him eight feet. So great was the indig
nation caused by the death of the
French soldier that Gen. Fekkox, min
ister of war, issued an edict prohibiting
blanket tossing as punishment hereafter
in the French army.
OUR CROSSUS IS OFF.
With Jay (.'ft-or *i*.in Europe and Bob
Garrett in Mexico, the United States
will have a chance now for a breathing
spell. Mr. Gakbett has gone to Mexico
for his health, and there is a rumor
that Mr. Gould is going to Europe
for the same reason. There is
nothing the matter with Mr. Gould's
mental faculties; his appetite is good,
his liver is all right, and all that
sort of thing; but Mr. Gould has a pre
monition that it will not be healthy for
him in this country about the 11th of
next month, so in order to avoid un
pleasant consequences he has concluded
to take a sea voyage. It is possibly a
wise move for Mr. Gould, and yet if
the anarchists bad marked him as an
object of vengeance he doesn't improve
matters a particle by going to Europe.
There are more anarchists on that side
of the water than on this, and they are
more bloodthirsty, too. So that after all
we are inclined to discredit the rumor
that Mr. Gould was afraid to stay in
this eountrj while the Chicago anar
chists were being hung. We think it a
more reasonable supposition that Mr.
Gould has his eye on the Suez canal or
the Chinese wall.. ■ . :
GOSPEL ARMY RACKET.
Gen. J. L. Thomson and Maj. E. N.
Fishbt.att, of the Gospel Army, are at
outs, and there is liable to be a split in
that noisy religious organization unless
the breach is healed in some way that
cannot be easily forseen. Maj. Fish
bi.att, who has for several years been
a resident of Minneapolis and a physi
cian in good standing, is a gentleman
and a scholar. Besides these accom
plishments he possesses an indomitable
will, and when he makes up his mind to
do a certain thing he goes about doing
it with an enthusiasm peculiar to him
self. It was but a few months ago that
Dr. Fisiii-latt allied himself with the
Gospel Army, and his earnestness as a
Christian worker soon won for him the
appointment of. major in the Gospel
ranks. Dr. Fishulatt . was con
verted not many years ago from
the Jewish faith, and at once
became an active worker in
the Methodist church. He devoted
more time and attention to works of
charity and to the conversion of souls
than he did to the practice of his pro
fession. Since his conversion he has
each year taken a prominent part in the
camp meetings held at Ked Rock, and
any one who has heard Dr. Fjshblatt
pi-ay, or exhort sinners'to accept the
Christian faith, cannot easily doubt
his sincerity in the work that he has
undertaken. In the stand that lie has
taken against Gen. Thomson he does
not show any signs of an ambition for
i personal ascendency, but appears to be
doing what he believes to be right, on
general principles. If the charges made
against Gen. Thomson by Dr. Fish
blatt are,;true, that gentleman has
committed "7 various acts for which
he -is liable to the law. ;If -,' it
is true that "ken. Thomson
has 7 never been \ licensed to
preach, if it is true that he never was
ordained a preacher, if it is true that he
carries only. a .certificate sighed by a
number of ministers showing that he
has preached two years, by which '■ he
identifies himself as* a minister of the
gospel, in presuming to marry the
couple in the hall of the Salvation Army
several weeks ago Gen. Thomson* com
mitted a sin for which there is no pun
ishment on earth too severe. If, as Dr.
FisiiBLATT. says, Gen. Thomson had
no right to marry that couple, he should
take it upon himself as a warrior against
immorality and sinfulness to bring
Thomson to justice and prevent him. if
he be the impostor that he is alleged to
lie, from imposing upon other people
who may be led to confide in him. It
seems strange, if all this be true, that
Dr. Fismu.ATT hasn't opened his mouth
before this. 7*;:-*7».t
THE ICE CARNIVAL.
While it is not definitely settled that
we are to have an ice carnival this win
ter, sufficient progress has been made
in the movement toward getting up one
to justify the Globe in asserting that it
is to be. The fact that Montreal has
abandoned its ice palace project for this
winter makes it almost imperative that
St. Paul shall go ahead and make a
greater success than ever of this sea
son's carnival." Of course every citizen
of St. Paul understands the value of
these carnivals to the city independent
of the pleasure afforded by them. In
the way of advertising the city and of
attracting strangers here the carnival
has a monetary value far beyond all the
money that is expended on it.
There are two questions connected
with the proposed carnival for the com
ing winter now being discussed by
those who will have the management of
it which are of equal interest to the pub
li". One is the question of location of
the ice palace, and the other is as to
whether admittance to the carnival
grounds shall be free or not. As to the
tirst proposition the almost universal
verdict will be that Central park is the
proper place for the ice palace, pro
vided there is room enough. There
have been some changes made in the
grounds at Central park since the last
ice palace stood there, and it is a ques
tion in the minds of some per
sons whether there can be space
enough secured for carnival purposes.
If there can be there should
no further question as to the site for the
ice palace. Central park is the place
for it by all odds, both because of its
central location and commanding eleva
tion and because all our ideas of ice pal
aces are associated with that spot of
ground. Not until it is definitely set
tled that Central park cannot be made
available is it worth while to discuss
any other location?
As to the question of granting admit
tance to the carnival grounds and mak
ing the sports of the carnival free to all,;
it does seem that there should be no
difference of opinion. The Globe un
hesitatingly pronounces in favor of a
free carnival. If the existing carnival
association does not feel justified in
taking hold of it on this basis, there are
those who can and will undertake to
raise the money for the purpose.
Another matter that should not be
overlooked is the originating of some
novelties in the. way of carnival feat
ures. We have had two carnivals with
almost the same identical features of
the first repeated at the last. We
want something new this time, and
something that will be as striking as
it will be novel. With the introduc
tion of an entirely new programme
popular interest and enthusiasm will be
revived, and this season's carnival will
be as unlimited a success as was the
COAI. RIOTS IMMINENT.
The next sensation . that Chicago
seems liable to enjoy is a coal riot. The
people down there are beginning to
kick vigorously against the gradual ad
vance in the price of coal since last
August. From -5C.75 a ton it has gone
up to $».75. .This is the price at which
coal is sold to those consumers who are
able to buy a ton or more at a single
purchase. There are a great number of
people in Chicago who depend upon
coal as a fuel and who are unable to
purcl a*e more than a basketful at a
time. These people are supplied by
peddlers who drive through the streets
with a coal cart and dole cut fuel in
small •measurements, much the same
as kerosene oil is sold from port
able tanks in the streets of St.
Paul. The price paid for coal
sold in this manner would increase
the ton valuation to $15. It will be seen
that that class of people who can least
afford to pay for their fuel are obliged
to pay twice as much as those who have
means at hand to buy in large quanti
ties. It is not denied that there is an
abundance of coal at the mines, but it
is claimed by prominent coal dealers
that the shippers and railroads are en
gineering a corner and propose to work
it for all it is worth. If this is the case,
local coal dealers are as much at the
mercy of the railroads and mines as the
small consumers are. There is no law
by which the merchant can be com
pelled to divide his profit with his
patron, nor can he reasonably be ex
pected to do so, but when the poor
classes are compelled to pay twice as
much for coal as the wealthy people
are asked, it is nothing more or less
than robbery and a glaring outrage.
The poorer classes, who are subjected
to this unreasonable discrimination, can
be reasonably excused if they hold in
dignation meetings and take steps to
loosen the grip of the coal monopoly
upon their throats.
Rev. Dr. Joseph E. Smith, the new pastor
of the new Central Park M. E. church, ar
rived in the city last week, and will preach
his inaugural sermon this morning. Dr.
Smith's fame as a pulpit orator has preceded
him, and the old Jackson Street congregation
will give him a cordial welcome. The Cen
tral Park church had a hard right to get Dr.
Smith away from his Buffalo congregation,
who were so much attached to him that they
refused to give him up until Bishop Foss
visited them and made it clear to their minds
that Dr. Smith's removal to the Northwest
would Le a benefit to the cause of Methodism.
Robert G. Ingersoll takes up the cudgel
again in defense of agnosticism in an arti
cle in the November number of the North
American Review. It is a reply to the Rev.
Henry M. Field, whose letter Mr. Ingersoll
characterizes as manly, candid and gener
ous. Mr. Ingersoll's article contains no
new argument. It is a condensed repetition
of- his platform lecture in opposition to
Christianity. He justifies his crusade against
religion on the ground that his object is to
drive fear out of the world. -'Fear*, is the
jailer of the mind," he says, "and Christian
ity makes every brain a prison and every soul

Mr. Donnelly is rapidly winning the

We mean to do it. Some day, some day,
We mean to slack this fevered rush :--^?7"
That is wearing our very souls away.
And grant to our goaded hearts a hush "7
That is holy enough to let them hear

We'll sit and muse, while the stars come out,
As the patriarch sat at the open door i l--.: .-*
Of his tent, with a heavenward gazing eye,
To watch for the angels passing by.
To see them afar at high noontide,
When fiercely the world's hot flashings
Yet never have bidden them turn aside, .
And tarry awhile in converse sweet;
Nor prayed them to hallow the cheer we
To drink of our wine and break our bread.
We promised our hearts that when the stress
Of the life-work reaches the longed-for
close, ; 7-
When the weight that we groan with hinders
We'll loosen our hearts to such repose
As banishes Care's disturbing din,
And then—we'll call the angels in. -
That day we dreamed of comes at length,
When, tired of every mocking quest,
And broken in spirit and shorn of strength,
We drop, indeed, at the door of rest,
And wait and watch as the day wanes on—
But the angels we meant to call are gone. S'

"The meek are often malicious," says /Col.

MEN WHO TALK.
John B. Sanborn, Attorney,: at Law—Pur
chasing a newspaper and establishing an
organ at New York may help the nomination
of Senator Sherman for the presidency in
1888, but there is something else besides
that to be done even if he should be selected
as the Republican standard bearer. Some
how Mr. Sherman, although popular enough
with the capitalists of the country, does not
strike the popular chord, and a veritable
■tone wall seems to have been erected,be
tween the voters and himself. People will
never forgive Senator Sherman for causing,
as they say and believe, the stringency in the
money market, while * secretary of thettrtw.i
nry, growing out of the persistency with
which he insisted upon a resumption of
specie payments. Thinking men and those
who look • ahead know that it" required
strong man in an emergency of that kind, but
the majority of the people conceived a preju
dice against the senator at "that time which
has never abated. In the next election some*
body in whom the people have implicit con- '
fidence must be "nominated if j the Repiibil- 1.
cans desire to be successful; and while every
one concedes that Mr. Sherman would cre
ate a powerful administration and is an able
statesman, still he does not possess the power
of attracting the masses that is the great de
sideratum. All the indications point to some
dark horse being the nominee, but whether
lightning will strike Judge Gresham, Gen.
Sheridan, ex-Secretary Lincoln or any of
the others whose names have been suggested
in connection with this position, I am not
prepared even to hazard a prediction. ... ",.
R. F. O'Neill.
Richard F. O'Neill, formerly of the Ryan
Cafe—ln common with hosts of friends of
Mr. John Phillips, the artist. I was shocked
at the publication in the Globe of the de
struction of his picture of Lawrence Bar
rett, the tragedian, the other morning in .
the vestibule of the Ryan. Probably I took
more interest in the matter than anybody
else because of the fact that in boyhood I
was a companion of Mr. Barrett, for we
both worked together in the office of the De
troit Times as printer's devils. For many
years there has been a story current that the
real name of Lawrence Barrett was Law
rence Brannigan, and that with his en-,
trance upon the stage the Celtic name was
dropped. To my personal knowledge the
tragedian's full name is Lawrence Patrick
Barrett, and there was never any question
about the matter among his former associ
ates in Detroit; Before going to work on the
Times Larry, as we called, him, was a bell
boy at the Biddle house, and was popular
with the guests of that hotel because of his
willingness to oblige every one that called his
services into requisition. "When he gave up
the bell boy's place and turned his attention
to the printing business, it was part of Bar
rett's work to take the printing to the thea
ter, the old Metropolitan at Detroit, and he
was always regarded as stage-struck by his
companions. It was not an unusual occur
rence at the dinner hour, to find him behind
a stack of type cases in the printing office,
industriously ""conning a copy iof Shake
speare, and frequently the boys would make
him spout a piece for then. Finally he at
tracted the attention of the manager of the
local theater, and was given a small speak
ing part in "Jack Sheppard," which Maggie
Mitchell was the star in. Stock companies
were the rule in those days, and step by step
Barrett advanced until he became leading
man of the company, and he then left Detroit
for New York, and the remainder of his
career is current history.
But why any one should wish to destroy his
picture is something beyond my comprehen
sion, for among all classes of people Law
rence Barrett has always been popular.and
he never struck me as a man who wanted to
put on airs. ■' c**
I recall an incident that occurred at Mil'
waukee on one occasion, when he was f play
ing an engagement at the theater in. that
city, and I went to the Plankintou house, to
pay my respects as an old friend. As soon as
I entered his room he rose and grasped me by
the hand, saying, "Why Dick, old fellOw, I
am glad to see you again." We had been
separated for years, but I found him,- al
though a . great - tragedian and famous
throughout the world, the' same genial, ac
commodating fellow that I had worked with
side by side in the dingy old printing office.
Senator C. K. Davis.

affairs in order, preparatory to going to Wash-
ington for the ensuing session of congress,
I and hope to be able to arrange matters so as
to leave St. Paul about the 20th of inext
month. I have been fortunate enough to
secure a most eligibly situated house at the
corner of Fifteenth and X streets, where I
will try and make myself comfortable and
my friends welcome when they visit the cap
ital. - It is a trifle early to discuss the political
. situation, and I am not prepared to express
an opinion as to the merits or qualifications
of any of the gentlemen whose names have
been mentioned in connection .with the pres
idency in 1888.'. My firist thought,' while at
Washington, will be the interests of the peo
ple who sent me to represent them in the
upper house of congress, and if I fail at any
time it will be the fault of the head and not
of the heart There will be a number of diffi

found on the right side, and one that will re
flect credit upon my constituency for the con
j fidence ■ they have reposed in me. During
the past summer, I have devoted a great deal
of my spare time to preparing for my new
sphere of duty, and have made a careful.
study of many of the leading questions that
will come before the senate. Naturally
enough, I desire to make a good impression
during my; first experience as a legislator on
national affairs, and will not be deterred
from doing my duty by the cry that I am the
junior senator from Minnesota.
Hon. Alexander Ramsey— received a call
from an old friend during the past week that
recalled to my mind very vividly a visit that
I paid to President Lincoln in the closing
days of the -war. Col. H. C. Ullman, who
was a colonel in the Veteran Reserve corps,
and, as such, charged with the duty of guard
ing the White house and other public build
ings in that vicinity, had for some time de
sired a promotion as brigadier general.
Provost Marshal James B. Fry did not favor
ably regard this application, and appeals to
Secretary Stanton only elicited the reply
that it could not be done unless Gen. Fry
would sanction it Then another move was
made, and this time it assumed the form of a
resignation, but still jno progress could be •
made through the war department channels.
An appeal to President Lincoln was accord
ingly determined upon ; so one morning, ac
companied by Col. Ullman, a call was made
at the White house. We were cordially re
ceived, and, after the facts had been laid be
fore Mr. Lincoln, he replied that he would ,
waive all red tape considerations, and, if Col.
Ullman insisted upon it, would accept'his 1
resignation immediately. It did not take
long for the document to be prepared.-and;
without any hesitancy, the president wrote
across its face, "Accepted; to I take effect im
mediately," and our mission was erownecf
with success. I had not seen the colonel
since, until he called upon me the othe^ay-,
and we recalled our trip to the .White house
and spent a pleasant hour in conversation,
about old times. - .-.-?_&

Lewis H. Maxfield, of Maxfield & 'Sea*"
bury—Within the past three weeks the HjfeikJf
of St. Paul have reduced the rate of discount,
which is a substantial indication that tha
money market is daily growing easier. WhiSt
the movement in real estate is not so prS
nounced as many expected it would be, the
reason, I think, is found in the fact that cap-
italists are helping the merchants now. BSaft
ports from Duluth, where this time last yea?
the wheat receipts aggregated 13,000,000
bushels, show that up to date not more than
one-third of that quantity has been received,
and this indicates that the farmers have been
otherwise engaged. All the country contigu
ous to Duluth, and especially the wheat; re
gion of Dakota.remains to be heard from,and
business will soon be booming along in its
proper channel and collections will "be ma
terially improved j But Eastern houses will ]
not wait for wheat or any other crop to move,
as they do not understtind-lt, but when their
bills are due we are pretty apt to receive a
notice to send a draft for the amount that we
owe them: and hence money flows into the'
coffers of these capitalists, no matter how
times are with us. But there is no lack of
money now, although real estate may be
quieter than some of the dealers wish.

This week our playgoers will be. treated
with" the first run of opera for the season by
, the Emma Abbott Opera company. The fol
lowing is Miss Abbott's repertoire for her St.
Paul engagement: Monday, "Ruy Bias, or
the Queen and the Lackey," Tuesday, Tro
vatore;" Wednesday matinee, "Chimes of
Normandy;" Wednesday night, "Bohemian
Girl;" Thursday, "Carnival of Venice," dur
ing which Miss Abbott will introduce the
celebrated lullaby song from "Erminie;" Fri
day, \ "Faust." Saturday matinee . perform
ance not yet announced, the engagement to
close Saturday night with "Mikado." .".".7:- %•
In these days when new operas are such a
rarity, it is a source of gratification to know
that Miss Abbott has added to her reper
toire one opera whose music, at least, is new
to American ears. During her visit in
Europe last summer Miss Abbott secured
the right to produce in this _ country
Morchetti's charming opera, "Ruy Bias,"
founded oh Victor Hugo's romance of that
name. The opera has had • a great run In
London, and in Italy there were over 200
different theaters at one time performing
this work. Music lovers and the dilettanti
speak well of the character of the music,
which is said to be highly dramatic, yet, at
the same time, full of melody and.tender
ness. Those who have heard it say that
there are many passages to remind one of
Meyerbeer's "Huguenots.'? .».-
.y-r^ry - . . * . . :■•>•;;
The first act of "Ruy Bias" opens with the
air "L an Exile," for Don Sallust, who has
just been condemned to banishment through
the influence of the queen of Spain. As the
air closes Ruy Bias appears, stands for a i mo
ment gazing fondly on the portrait of the
queen, then breaks into a rippling melody of
adoration which Don Sallust overhears.
Then follows a spirited duet, in which Don
Sallust draws Ruy Bias into his plot. The
next scene is the garden of the royal palace,
where the queen appears in a lamentation
over the lonely life led by her in the palace,
followed by a joyous burst of reminiscence
as she dwells on the happiness of her life in
her native Germany. The second act opens
with the chorus of the noblemen assembled
in council. Ruy Bias enters and denounces
them. As the noblemen retire the queen
enters, and here occurs the love duet which
is the gem of the opera. It is suggested in the
overture, and the motive occurs repeatedly
in different keys and taken up .by different
instruments. It is a dreamy and expressive
duet tinged with a pathos that foreshadows
the tropic climax. In the last act there is a
fine air for Ruy Bias, a beautiful lyric lament
for the dream that is past. The final scene
is where Ruy Bias dies in the queen's arms
after having killed Don Sallust Miss Ab
bott sings the part of Maria Theresa, queen
of Spain, and Sig. : Montegrifto sings
the part of "Ruy Bias." The remainder of
the company is cast as follows: "Casilda,"
Lizzie Annaxdale; "Duchess Giovanua,"
Bertha Fricke; Don Sallust, William 1 rc
ette; Don Fernando, Walter Allen; Don
Guintano, William Broderick ; Don Manuel,
Theodore Bey ant; Messenger, Robert
Beaumont. Miss Abbott claims to. have the
richest and most elaborate costuming in this
opera that has ever been seen on an Ameri
can stage. -...-::
There seems to be no limit to the projected
plans for building new opera houses in St
Paul without any positive indications of ma
terialize tion. The latest rumor is that Ed
Davidsc >*. son and heir of the late Commo
dore Davidson, is at the head of a syndicate
which proposes to erect a new dramatic tem
ple on a scale of magnificence away beyond
anything that has yet been contemplated.
It is said that the site of the Exposition build
ing on Fourth street, between Wabasha and
St Peter, is to be the location of the new Da
vidson theater. The old Exposition building
is to be torn away and a new building to be
erected in its place, to be eight or ten stories
high, with the theater on the ground floor.
It is known that there have been some re
cent conferences between - those who are
supposed to be interested in the matter, but
the details of this new theater deal are kept
a close secret. -
"Speaking of building new theaters," re
marked Charles Palmer, manager of the
Emma Abbott company, the other afternoon,
as he bit off the end of a cigar and dropped
into an easy chair for a comfortable and
gossipy chat on theater matters in general,
"if everybody saw as much of the outcome
of theater building as I have seen there
wouldn't be so many new theater crazes
sweeping over the country. Let* me see.
Commencing with "New York and going
through Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washing
ton, Pittsburg, Cincinnati, Louisville, New
Orleans, St, Louis, Chicago, Omaha, Kansas
City, the Twin Cities of the Northwest, Den
ver, and even out to San Francisco, I can
count on the fingers of one hand all the
theaters that have ever paid • a dividend to
the stockholders, while the wrecks of
bursted theater companies strew the whole
line of travel. Star actors and prima donnas
usually make money and some of them big
piles of it, but the owners of theater build
ings and the managers of theatrical com
panies never do. I have been a theatrical
manager myself for twenty-two years, and I
ought to know what I am talking about."
Now that Mrs. James Brown Potter is
really making money by her professional
work, Mr. Potter is said to be better recon
ciled than formerly to his wife's going on the
stage. He gave her a most cordial greeting
when she reached New York, and now mani
fests a great deal of interest in the prospect
of her dramatic success. Mrs. Potter brought
home with her a jewel of a wardrobe, which
' is said to be the envy of all the stage women.
Worth cudgeled his brain to produce
'some marvel of artistic beauty in the
way of costuming the distinguished de
- bntante. For "Faustiue" : there is a
' beautiful * evening gown of yellow
prulle de sole, trimmed with jet; the pervad
* Ing tone is of yellow and heliotrope, and on
" the bodice, which is decollete, she wears a
. bunch of pink roses. - For "The Lady of Ly-
I ons" there is a magnificent gown of white
i satin, embroidered in *** spangles of different
_ colors, with a sweeping court train of Nile
i green velvet. A visiting dress is of gray
green trimmed with costly furs. A street
i dress has a front of rose pink, with an over-
II dress of silver gauze and a princess train of
I rich black velvet embroidered with hundreds
:of shining black stars. There are other street
dresses and tea gowns of varied hue and
richness which make the mouth water to
look at. • v^"""'■*_7'- : *'*•"' "'

c Madame Modjeska is the most modest and
.unpretentious of all the stage celebrities.
She doesn't even have her name printed in
large black letters on the programmes, as
stars are wont to do. j Her name is run in the
printed list of the cast just as the names of
> the other members of the company, in small
"letters and without effort at display. It is
also a remarkable truth that • while Modjes
ka's costuming is a model of elegance, she
never seeks to advertise that fact. - But it Is

A FOOL'S WISDOM.
Only the oldest inhabitant will remember
that the Central Presbytarian church which
stands on Cedar street near the capitol, was
built in 1852, and that it has seen thirty
seven summers come and go after an equal
number of winters. The old structure is be
ginning to look weather-beaten, and I hear
that ere long it Is to be torn down and re
placed Dya finer one of stone and brick.
The first pastor of the Central Presbyterian
church was the Reverend Dr. Riheldappeb,
pastor now of a church in Redwood Falls.
It will cost him a pang perhaps to learn of the
prospective destruction of his old church. .
■ * «
There are a number of men in this state
who have come that near to being residents
of St. Paul and millionaires that it takes their
breath away now to tell of it O. B. Tub
bell, of Redwood Falls, Is one of them. . Ten
years or more ago he owned property in St
Paul whose value stands now in the hundred
thousand dollar list. Among the valuable
pieces of land that he held then was the
Merriam place, besides other well located res
idence property on College and Sherman
avenues. About the time that the bonanza
farm fever reached the Northwest Mr. Tub
bell invested In 30,000 acres in Redwood
county and began operating what was the
largest farm ever controlled by one man in
this state. At first the venture proved profit
able, but one misfortune and another turned
the tide of his affairs, and tne bonanza farm
and St. Paul lots were laid aside. As an in
stance, though, of his change of heart in cer
tain points about farming, I might cite that
he lost his money in wheat and won it back
One of the standing jokes of last winter's
legislature was Fred Warner's Eldorado
coal mine in Redwood county. Fred's
stories about it at that time brought tears to
the eyes of the granger legislators whose
families were living in less favored sections
of the state and burning hay for fuel. Some
time last summer, as the story runs, a cer
tain St. Paul capitalist visiting in Redwood
heard of Fred's mine and asked to be shown
it Fred asked him to wait a day; but the
visitor was pushed for time and intimated
that if the mine acteally existed he could be
called on for some financial assistance.
Fred told him then that he would take him
out that afternoon. By some mischance they
failed to meet after dinner, and the St. Paul
man, learning through another source that
the mine consisted of croppings of coal on
the banks of an old creek about two miles
out of town, secured a horse and drove out
When he neared the coolie he tethered his
horse, and hearing voices.cautiously crawled
up to the edge and peered over. What he
saw was Feed half way down the bank hold
ing on to the bushes with one hand and
catching with the other chunks of Lehigh
coal, which Prof. Welles was tossing up to
him from a wheelbarrow which stood at the
bottom. Fred was just saying to the per
spiring professor: "Hurry up, Wellest.
When we get this done, I'll make that St.
Paul galoot think that ail the coal beds of
Pennsylvania have been surpassed by this."
The "galoot" didn't wait to hear any more,
. but got back to town and took the next train
The story has been wrongfully accredited
to Judge Dick Jones, late of Rochester, that
it* was he who rose in a Methodist prayer
meeting when no one responded to an appeal
to speak for Jesus, and said that "he'd be
banged if he'd see that individual without a
friend" in that place and not say a word for
him. Unless I am very greatly mistaken, it
was Judge Olds who created that mild sen
sation. Reading in the foreign dispatches
that Jennie Lind is dying brings to my mind
what Judge Jones once said of her. He
heard her in Memphis sing "Home, Sweet
Home," and he said that ever after that he
could not stay in a room where any one was
attempting to sing it. '.*..-.
* That the Republicans of the First district
are not living in unity together, as brothers
should, I find illustrated by the reception of
a paragraph which I wrote some weeks ago.
I suggested then that Judge Staet or J. A.
Leonabd were the only respectable Repub
lican leaders in the district.from whom a
choice could be made for the congressional
nomination next year. The Plainview News,
commenting upon this, reads the riot act in a
terrible manner to the j old Republican lead
ers, Dunneix and White. It charges them
with all manner of treachery, disruption of
the party and wanton abuse of power. It is
unfortunate for the Republicans, If this be
true, that they are not in a position to choose
men of ability and respectability as their
leaders. ':"'-"*~ ."'•'■.
St. Paul once had a socialistic order com
posed almost wholly of Germans. But what
has become of it in these times, . when the
passage of resolutions for the condemned an
archists is deemed necessary, I cannot tell.
The order assumed to be, I think, a branch of
the San Francisco socialists, and advocated
the "use of force as a dernier resort. The
order met Sunday afternoon, in Arion hall,
and listened to fiery addresses with peaceable
behavior. The daily press for some time re
ported their meetings, but they were gradu
ally lost sight of, and, I presume, have passed
out of existence.
State Auditor Bbaden is a possible candi
date for governor who appears and disap
pears regularly every two years. He may bob
up again next year, as certain slate papers
intimate. If the Republicans decide to nom
inate Robert Lincoln for president and
Fred Grant for vice president, and make a
soldiers' campaign of it, the G. A. R. of this
state see in Mr. Bbaden the best choice for
governor. He has an honorable army record,
is influential in the G. A. R., and as a state
official has always commanded respect. The
combination proposed is a unique one. It is,
to nominate him for governor, and to advo
cate prohibition in the platform he would
stand on. This, it is hoped, would accom
plish the three-fold object of corralling the
soldier vote, retaining the Scandinavian ele
ment, and bringing into the fold the 12,000
prohibition votes that are now outside. In
only one way could the demagogy of such a
combination be improved upon, and that by
adding woman's suffrage.
Joel Heatwole has a bad attack of spleen.
Not being captivated by Mrs. Cleveland's
sweetness when she visited St. Paul, he went
home and editorially announced that there
were a hundred prettier girls than she in
Northfield. The truth ot this can
scarcely be doubted, since it emanates from
the secretary of the state central Republican
committee. But when it is understood that,
while Joel was gazing on the president and
his wife, he was kicked in the rear and trod
upon in front, his hat stove in, and the last
copy of his paper containing his essay on
gubernatorial majorities in 1886 picked
from his pocket, his savagery is explained.

THE WINNERS' AVERAGES.
Batting and Fielding of the Northwest-
era League Champions.
PATSY O'LEARY IS SAUCY.
He Is Willing to Fight Tommy Warren
Any Way, Even to a
7 yLL\ Finish.
The averages of the members of the
Oshkosh team have been printed, and
they are of interest chiefly because the
team won the pennant. The general
batting average is high, and in fielding
the team proves to have been somewhat
stronger than that of St. Paul.' Mc-
Carthy, the leading batter of the team,
generally believed to have had an aver
age of over .400, gets only .385, ten points
below Crooks, of St. Paul. The fielding
of some members of the team was very
brilliant. For instance," Wilson, who.
played in thirty-seven games, made but
three errors and has an average of .991,
and O'Connell, the first baseman, has
an average of .971. The batting aver
ages of the men who were with the team
at the end of the season are as follows :
McCarthy ;...47i 117 .385
Shafer 535 200 .367
Hoy ; 530 192 .362
O'Connell.. 526 110 .361

The figures on the Oshkosh team are
taken from the Oshkosh Times. We i
have, however, corrected a serious error
in the Times computation. The Times
,will find, by footing up its own figures,
that the Oshkosh team put out 3,080, in
stead of 2,080, men and this slight alter
ation makes the team average .916, in
stead of .904.
Patsy O'Leary Determined to
Make Warren Fight Rim.
Patsy O'Leary, of Cincinnati, Tommy
Warren's old antagonist, has turned up
at Minneapolis and wants another go at
the champion. He last evening visited
the Globe oflice and said:
After traveling hundreds of miles to get on
a match with the (in my opinion) greatly
overrated champion feather-weight. Tommy
Warren, 1 have at last struck a city where he
is held in such high estimation by numerous
admirers that he cannot with any degree of
manliness to himself or his friends refuse to
accept a fair manly challenge coming from
any opponent in the class, especially when
he claims the feather-weight championship.
I think I can defeat him; and as my backers
in the East don't care about making matches
away from home, where they would have to
neglect their business, I make the following
proposition: I•• will fight Warren
in public or private to a finish, eight, ten or
twelve rounds, in fact any way he wants to,
the winner to take all, loser to get nothing,
or for a division of the gate. My claim to
the championship of the feather-weights is
based on more substantial grounds than
Warren's. I have defeated Joe Ridge, of
Cincinnati, in twelve rounds; Frank Mur
phy, of the same city, in four rounds; Pete
Evans and Tom Riley, both of the same city,
in six and eight rounds, respectively. I
knocked Young Berry, of Chicago, out in
four rounds; Pete Johnson, of St. Louis, in
three rounds, and defeated Tommy Danforth
in everyone's estimation, but the referee's,
whodeclarea the fight a draw. I fought
Danforth again eight rounds in New York,
and was a sure winner when the police in
terfered. I beat Young Welsh, of Philadel
phia; bested Martin Neary; fought a draw
with Jim Peterson; defeated Con Drlscol, of
New York, in two rounds; knocked out
Young Carrol, of Buffalo, in six rounds, in
Grand Rapids, Mich. ; beat Thurston, of Can
ada, in one round, in Windsor, Ont.; beat
Bates of Cleveland, in six rounds, and last,
but not least, fought Tommy Warren on his
own camping ground, Louisville, Ky. Here
lam again at Warren's own home, asking
him to give me another show at him, and all
I seek is a fair field and no favors. If he de
feats me he can have all the money and gain
a better reputation.

Experienced Newspaper Men To
Run It Hereartefj

has been sold to a syndicate, of which
the chief members are Clinton A. Snow
don, for many years managing editor of
the Times under Mr. Storey, and James
J. West, business manager of an even
ing publication of this city. Negotia
tions looking to the purchase" have been
going on for some time and were
only brought to a culmination
to-day. Separate terms had to be made
with the widow of Mr. Storey and with
his heirs. The instruments were
signed and delivered this afternoon,
and a large forfeit was put up to guar
antee that the balance of the purchase
money would be paid within sixty days.
Both sides are careful to state that any
report of W. C. Goudy, the well-known
Democratic lawyer and politician, being
a party to the sale is without foundation.
The. final settlement will place the
Times on a sound financial basis, and
will also give it a responsible head both
in its editorial and business depart
ments. It is understood that Mr. Snow
den will be the editor-in-chief, and will
conduct* the paper under its old-time
vigorous policy, being assisted in this by
Joseph R. Dunlop as-managing editor.

Storey. Mr. West will take charge of
the financial affairs of the paper.
