President Cleveland Gives the Slatemakers Another Big* Surprise. A Hitherto Unheard of Chicago Man Captures the Chief Justiceship. Minneapolis G. A. R. Petition for Means to Erect Tomb- stones for Comrades. St. Paul and Duluth Public Building* Bills Reported Favorably. Special to the Globe. Washington, April President Cleveland to-day sent to the senate the name of Melville W. Fuller, of Chicago, to be chief justice of the United States. Melville Weston Fuller was born in Augusta, Me,, Feb. 15, 1833. His father was Frederick A. Fuller; mother,- Cath- arine, daughter of Chief Justice Nathan Weston. Melville W. fitted for college in Augusta and graduated at Bowdoin in the class of 1853, his classmate being E. .1. Phelps, minister to England. Mr. Fuller, after leaving college, began the study of law at Bangor. After attend- ing lectures in the law department of Harvard, he began practice in Augusta in 185... While waiting for clients, he acted as editor of the age, and won his spurs in journalism. Keeling that his true field of work was the law, and real izing that his native city did not afford that scope for effort which he stood in need of, Mr. Fuller came west and se lected Chicago. Here he did not. have to wait long for practice. His ability was speedily recognized and properly rewarded. For thirty years he has en joyed a lucrative practice, and has won distinction among the foremost at this bar. In IS.'. I he was elected a member of the state constitutional convention. in isr,-.' he was chosen to the legislature, and. though a Democrat, running each time in a strong Republican district in: was VICTORIOUS by large majorities. He was a delegate to the Democratic national conventions of 1804, 18?.), 1870 and issn. In 18.50 be was selected by the citizens to deliver the address of welcome to Stephen A. Douglas. In 1858 Mr. Fuller married CalistaO. Reynolds, and after her de cease, Mary Ellen, daughter of the dis tinguished hanker, William F. Cool baugh. He has eight daughters, In his practice in the supreme court of the United States, Mr. Fuller has repeat- edly come in contact, both as a col league, ami as an opponent, with Messrs. Edmunds, Thurman, Hoadly, Ingersoll and other admittedly great lawyers, ami has never tailed to hold his own against the greatest of them. He is familiar with the decisions of that court and well informed in the history of our country and especially in consti- tutional questions. Not content with the vast amount of reading and writing which of necessity results from the ac- tive practice of his profession, Mr. Mil ler does an immense amount of miscel laneous reading and considerable writ- ing by way of recreation. He is an om nivorous reader, resembles Macauley in hi.- liking for a good novel, as well as the swiftness with which he grasps the contents of a hook and the tenacity with which his memory clings to it. I1K..B.D IN WASHINGTON. When the nomination of Melville W. Fuller as chief justice of the United States reached the senate. Minister Phelps and Senator Cray were sitting together on one of the sofas. The nom- ination was immediately made the sub ject of general, whispered conversation and. as far as could be ascertained, the comment was entirely favorable to the selection from every standpoint, Mr. Fuller's qualifications and fitness being recognized on the Republican side of tin chamber, while the political wisdom of the appointment is conceded bv the Democrats who opposed the selection of Minister Phelps. Fuller never tilled hor sought an office, but has held a high place in the councils of the Democratic party. Early in the administration of Mr. Cleveland he was tendered tin- solicitor generalship, and subsequently positions on the civil service commission, inter state commerce commission and Pacific railroad commission, all of which he declined. He has been held in the highest regard by the president, and has been generally indorsed by Western Democrats. in personal appearance Mr. Fuller is unusually handsome; his hair and mustache are silvery, and his features are clear cut and intelligent. Hi stature he is short and slight, com- pared with his future associates on the supreme bench. Mr. Fuller is a man of high scholarly as well as legal attain ments, and as ah orator his talents have given him the name of the ChaunceyM. Depew of the West. In politics he is best described as an "old school Demo- crat." He was loyal in feeling during the war; is a believer in the advanced doctrine of state's rights, and an advo cate of simple government, He is a member of the Episcopal church, and has been prominently identified with that organization and conspicuous in the Cheney and other famous ecclesi astic trials. He is well known in Wash ington as a practitioner before the su- preme court. The nomination of Mr. Fuller seems to give general satisfaction to the Dem- ocrats, while no unfriendly criticisms arc heard from Republicans. Senator Cullom says Mr. Fuller is an excellent B lawyer, and will make an excellent chief justice. Senator Spoon or speaks in the highest terms of Mr. Fuller, and say:, he is a man of profound learning and eminent respectability. >No oppo- sition from Republican senators to ins confirmation is apprehended. Judge Cooley, chairman of the interstate com merce commission, this afernoon wired his heartiest congratulations to Mr. Fuller. He says the appointment is in every way an excellent one, ami that Mr. Fuller will make a perfect chief justice. in cmc.voo. Chicaoo, April 30.— The nomination of Melville W. Fuller, of Chicago, as chief justice of the United States, is re- garded with unbounded satisfaction by the lending men of both parties. Mr. Fuller is in every respect fitted to fill tin' high office in which lie has been nominated. Melville W. Fuller is a Chicago lawyer who has made a large local reputation, but who is not very well known nationally. He is an old IChieagoan from the days before the lire, and has grown up with the town. His appointment will give satisfaction in Chicago, where he has had the support of a united Democracy. The appoint ment is not entirely unexpected, as Fuller's friends have confidently claimed his success for some time. It is not known yet how the nomination will strike the senate, which must pass upon it. Mr. Fuller was dining with some friends at thtfhoquls club when Daily Globe found by a reporter. He had no inti- mation whatever of the nomination and was so overcome at the announcement that for some moments he could utter nothing more than an exclamation of surprise ; he requested that he be not pressed for an extended interview, say- ing that he was not in condition to talk on the subject as the nomination had come so unexpectedly. He stated, how- ever, that he would hot decline the nom- ination'. G. A. R. TOMBSTONES. A Petition for an Appropriation- Car Appliances Needed. Special to the Globe.

Cummings and 102 others, of Wilmot,' asking that the treaty be headed with Sisseton and Walipetou Indians for a reduction of their reservations.

A Hot Time Anticipated With a Probability of Two Delegations. The Young Democrats of Wis- consin Take the Lead in Politics. Special to the Globe. Watertown, April 30.— com- munity is already beginning to feel the rising tide of the grand convocation of the Democracy of Dakota. All local in- terest centers in the convention, and the citizens, regardless of politics, or even Mr. Church or Mr. Day, are preparing to extend the freedom of the town and all reasonable courtesies to the distin- guished representatives of all the or- ganized counties— even the dispensers of the refreshing Teutonic beverage promise to have an amply supply of bock on tap. Citizens will practically suspend business and put in their time making the stay of the visitors enjoya- ble. While the local sentiment with the Democrats is strongly with the war horse of Bon Homme, as the head of the opposition to the versatile execu- tive, as termed by his followers, there will be absolute impar- tiality in the treatment of the fac- tions by the Watertown people. They anticipate that, while this charming city is securing new repute and wider fame, the entertainment afforded by the organized assemblage will be of the liveliest ever seen in the history of po- litical gatherings in Dakota. The lead- ers on both sides are arriving numer- ously to-night, and the two leading hotels are the buzzing centers of the rival clans. The rotundas are thronged, but the men who manipulate matters are more secluded, and busy in receiving reports from representatives of the various delegations. There are not, however, yet enough of the counties on the ground to elicit any very definite information as to the probable outcome. The great struggle is to be over the temporary organization as this will vir tually determine the control, as the ad mission of all the contesting delegations on either side will, no doubt, furnish the majority. Gov. Church has an advantage in having the support of Judge Bangs, the chairman of the gen- eral committee, who will call the con- vention to order. It is the current talk about the Day headquarters that if they do not have, a fair show in the or ganization, they will organize by them selves. Mr. Day is not doing .much talking, but is putting in untiring work, and his friends predict that the show ing will be very different from the fig- ures put forth from Bismarck in the interest of the governor. Still, the Churchmen insist upon their claims, and ridicule the idea that Day can stem the current. The few who like to ver- ify their opinions by wagers are offer- ing odds on Church. They claim that the Day men will be subdued and quietly acquiesce In the domination of the governor — but this is not the indica- tion of the feeling on the Day side. There will be a tremendous circus, with probably two delegates to St. Louis. This is the impartial outlook to-night. ON RELIGIOUS GROUNDS. Col. Sheaf es. was interviewed as to the ' reasons for his persistent fight in the county convention for Gov. Church. lie informs us that his reasons, like his reasons for being a Democrat, are on purely religious grounds. He says the Apostles were all Democrats, none more so than St. Peter. The colonel specially refers to the First Epistle of St. Paul, xxv., 25, for his position and reasons for standing by the governor first, last and always. In that chapter and verse he refers us to the following: "Submit yourselver ' to every ordinance of man for the Lord's sake, whether it be to the president as supreme or unto the gov- ernor, as unto them that are sent for the punishment of evil doers and for the praise of them that do their duty." The colonel bases his action on holy writ and appeals to. all good Democrats to sustain him. Delegates to the convention to be held on the 25th inst. for the purpose of electing delegates to the St. Louis con- vention are now arriving on every train. There are about one hundred and fifty delegates in the city, among them are many of the leading Democrats in the territory, and prominent among them is Hon. M. H. Day, who is here person- ally direct the closing of the campaign that has been waged against Gov. Church. It is impossible to determine from the delegates now here on which side the majority will be found. Both sides are exercising the greatest vigi- lance and work most ardently. The in- dications now are that there will be an unusual number of contested delega- tions. After the convention held here last Saturday adjourned the Church men organized and elected a full dele- gate ticket, thus giving Codington county a double-header in the conven- tion. Both sides claim that the majority are in their favor, the convention will no doubt be an intensely exciting one. IT WILL BE FOR BLOOD. From the present outlook, next Wednesday Watertown will be the scene of a bitter, decisive, but short con- test for the supremacy of one or the Other faction of Dakota Democracy. It will be bitter because dying men are al- ways desperate; decisive, because the minority stake all on the issue and it will subside thereafter; short, because one side or the other will assert its power on the start. The fight is simply a question of guerillas against the regu- lars: of soreheads against the satisfied; of the faithful adherents to the authori- ties against revolutionists. It is Day disappointed, with his followers dis- appointed, against Church, the regularly indorsed candidate for governor. and the regularly appointed head of the party, backed up by those loyal to the wishes' of the ad- ministration. It is useless to kick against the pricks. The large majority is for Church, the administration and peace, The small minority is for Day and factional war. The convention will be a Waterloo and a lasting peace will follow, a peace that will unite and strengthen the Democracy of Dakota. Watertown is proud to be the battle ground and will see to it that victors and yanvuished are alike treated to the fat of the land. Watertown as a city takes no sides. She extends a hearty welcome to all and will send all away satisfied so far as hospitality is con- cerned. A DAY SCHEME. Special to the Globe. Jamestown, Dak., April 30.— A large delegation of Democrats, headed for the SAINT PAUL, MINN. TUESDAY MORNING, MAY 1, 1888. Watertown convention, went south this morning. Delegates from the northern counties are in the city and will leave in the morning. Although "Stutsman county unanimously selected Church delegates, it is said that in furtherances of the Day scheme of sending enough contesting delegations to obtain control of the temporary organization, G. W. Goodrich, a Day wire-puller, will leave. to-morrow, carrying in his pockets al-» leged credentials of a contesting dele- gation. URGED BY THE REPUBLICANS. Special to the Globe. Yankton, Dak.. April 30.— A double delegation to the Watertown convention will leave in the morning for that place. The Day champions have concluded to withdraw from the convention if they can not control it, hold another conven- tion and send a contesting delegation to St. Louis. Republican politicians are urging this action in anticipation of destroying Gov. Church's prestige with the national administration and divid- ing the party in the territory. GOES UNINSTBUCTED. Special to the Globe. Faulkton, Dak., April 30.— At the Democratic convention held here the 20th for Faulk county. J. W. Thomas, Alex Lafoon, K. II. Wilson and S. D. Griffee were chosen delegates to Water- town May 2. The delegation goes unin- structed and will work and vote for the best interests of the Dakota Democracy. The convention tabled all resolutions offered. The personal preferences of the delegates are two for Day and two for Church. YOUNG DEMOCRATS. They Will Capture the Wisconsin State Convention. Special to the Globe. Madison, Wis., April 30.— The Demo- cratic state convention to elect dele- gates to the national convention at St. Louis meets here at noon to-morrow. about one-third of the delegates are in the city to-night, and considerable ri- valry between candidates for the St. Louis convention is being carried on in the hotel rotundas. Among the dele- gates who have as yet arrived in the city the predominance of young men is decidedly noticeable. The old stand-bys, who always attend the state conventions are here as a matter of course, but the great bulk is made of men who never attended a con- vention before, or at least few compared to the convention of "young Repub- licans," the really young men of that concern are outnumbered ten to one, a fact which the Republican managers will undoubtedly relist. The state cen- tral committee held a meeting at the Park hotel to-night. The committee decided upon 11. B. Dodge, of Racine, for temporary chairman, and J. T. Kingston, Jr., of Ashland, for tempo- rary secretary of the convention. a brief set of resolutions in- dorsing Cleveland and his attitude on the tariff were adopted and will be sub- mitted to the convention.-. John L. Mitchell, of Milwaukee, was elected a member of the national committee, to fill the vacancy caused by the resigna- tion of Secretary Vilas. A resolution was adopted to be submitted to the con- vention, by which the present state committee virtually resigns and asks the convention to elect a new commit- tee to serve until January, 1H»1_ The most prominent candidates for delegates at large mentioned to-night are James G. Jenkins, of Milwaukee; George W. Bird, of Madison; S. 11. Seaman, of She- boygan; G. W. Pratt, of Oshkosh. Gil- bert M. Woodward, of La Crosse, was considered to be sure of going as one of the delegates until to-night, when he telegraphed Chairman Usher his withdrawal in favor of Sena- tor D. A. MacDonald. There is a strong sentiment still existing, how- ever, for Woodward, and lie may be elected in spite of his withdrawal. With regard to district delegates mat- ters are very much mixed. About every district has five or six candidates waiting to have to-morrow's May baskets hung on their doors, and it is impossible to predict on whom the 1 on- ors will fall until the rest of the dele- gates get in. The convention will be enthusiastic for Cleveland, and will probably be the largest-attended Demo- cratic convention ever held in Wiscon- sin. The large number of young men present is significant in the face of the desperate efforts of the Wisconsin Re- publicans to corral the "kids" and their fold. New Hampshire Democrats. Concord, N. II., April 30.— larg- est gathering of Democrats in the his- tory of the party in this state is in Con- cord to-night to attend the convention to-morrow for the choice of delegates to the St. Louis convention. At 0 p. m. a caucus was held. John M. Mitchell, of Concord, was selected for . per- manent chairman of the convention. It is settled that Hon. Frank Jones, of Portsmouth, and Hon. A. W. Sulloway, of Franklin, will he elected two of the four delegates at large, and it is almost reasonably certain that their colleagues will be Hon. Harry Bingham, of Littleton, and Hon. J. C. Moore, of Gilford. Immediately after the adjournment of the state convention two district conventions will convene and choose delegates. The state con- vention will adopt resolutions strongly indorsing President Cleveland's admin- istration anil his tariff policy. Mitchell Elected. Madison, Wis., April 30.— The Dem- ocratic state central committee to-night elected John L. Mitchell, of Milwaukee, to represent Wisconsin in the national committee, vice William F. Vilas, re signed. OBITUA RY. Special to the Globe. St. Cloud, April 30.— Mrs. E. H. Wright, wife of E. II. right, died early this morning of consumption. She had on _ Saturday returned, from Colorado, where her husband ' had taken her to benefit her health. She leaves two children. The funeral will take place on Wednesday. Special to the Globe.

I Those for the other wards are precisely like it, except for the aldermanic candi- date, the last name on the list. In the 'Mli<>r wards other names should of course stand in place of Mr. Gehan's. Bj an agreement between the two city ' committees the candidates for constable and justice of the peace will be voted for, by the whole city. All manner of spurious tickets have been scattered throughout the city. They are the last device of the Repub- lican gang to defeat an honest expres- sion of the people's will at the polls. Dei not be cheated by them. Do not be imposed on by spurious tickets. Read your ballot carefully and see that it is like the one printed above. See that the name of the Democratic candidate for alderman from your ward is there and then vote it straight. It is your highest •duty to-day. Do not neglect it. Go to the polls early and. vote the straight ticket. IT IS SIGNIFICANT. The Chances Are Bright fop a Con- '- tinuaiiceof the Party in Power. The day is significant. The fate of good city government depends upon the issue. Every Democratic voter should make ft his first business of the day to put a ballot in the box— the one printed at the head of this column. Don't allow business to enter your head until you have voted the straight Democratic ticket. Vote the straight Democratic ticket! . The candidates are well known to a man. They are men of well established character, unassailable honesty and un questioned ability, to whom the affairs of government may safely be entrusted. They belong to the party that has been in power in St. Paul during all the re cent years of its phenomenal growth. The administration has been wise, and paid strict attention to the needs and interests of the city, Prominent Re- publicans say that St. Paul is en oying the best city government it has ever known, and as good as that of the best governed cities in the Union. If every Democrat attends to his duty and votes the chances are bright this morning that the Democratic party will beccontinued in power, as it shoud be. Vote the straight Democratic ticket. .The administration can in no way be assailed, nor can the candidates for this election. Not a single charge or speci- fication has been laid at their door. Every attempt has been made to find something to charge them with only to : result in complete, ignominous failure, arid the ASSAULTS OF THE HIRELINGS .of the Republican parte have resolved themselves into the old cry of "fraud." It is the moss-grown Republican chest- nut and counts for nothing. Even those misguided ones who raised the cry of fraud quietly sneaked into their holes after the first outbreak, and remained concealed for fear the reaction might result disastrously to them. A ticket like the one at the head of this column is seldom seen in any city. ' Vote the straight Democratic ticket! Every good citizen, unless he be a ■rank, unyielding partisan, has nothing but praise for the administration and the candidates on the Democratic ticket. No "good Democrat, or conservative Re publican for that matter, will allow a gang of men to step in power about whom he knows absolutely nothing and with whose methods he is entirely un- acquainted. The campaign is over. The candi- dates have labored hard and faithfully and are deserving of the success in- dicated at this hour. They will get it if every Democrat takes prompt advantage of liis right to vote and votes the straight Democratic ticket! Many spurious tickets have been scattered amongst the voters.. : Democrats, examine your tickets carefully before you PUT Til EM IN' THE BOX and do not allow the minions of the Re- publican party to in any way influence your right or" suffrage. Study the ticket at the head of this column. . It would be a credit to any city in America. Don't scratch your ticket! Vote it straight ! If you vote for this ticket you vote for men you know. You know how efficient the Democratic administration has ; been heretofore, and . you cannot afford to take any chances by voting for a strange crowd, whose methods and character you know nothing about. The reputation abroad of the St." Paul city government at present is one of which every citizen might well feel proud. Let that reputation continue unsoiled. To do this vote the Democratic ticket straight. Vote early. Don't scratch. ABOUT DISCOURAGED. The Republican City Committee Wbs Demoralized Yesterday. The Republicah city committee, after carefully looking over the ground, prac- tically gave up the fight yester- day. To a Globe reporter they gave it out that they expected nine out of the seventeen aldermen. In discussing the situation amongst themselves, they said they would con- sider it lucky if they elected five, and some even drew the figure down to four. The secret of the matter is that they lacked solid organization, and the big guns they fired off early in the day failed to reach the mark. They had hoped to elect John Roche, but felt rather weary when they found the workingmen solidly against him and in favor of Daly. So far as Mr. Thauwald was con- cerned, they recognized the fact that George Reis' record, personal popularity and strong German support would carry him through easily. Coleman Flaherty, in the Second. hav- ing the united support of the working- men, was recognized as solid. Pat Con ley was conceded as solid in the Third, likewise Pat Kavanagh in the Fourth, Some conceded that Will- iam Banholzer was a winner in the Fifth, and some had hopes for Mr. Bock. Recognizing the fight that Bryant and Berlandi were making against, each other in the Sixth, they conceded plain sailing for Melady. The Seventh having no Democratic candidate.is, of course, sure to elect Aid. Sanborn. They figured that Henry Weber would come through in the Eighth, though they recognized that Joseph Matz was making a big fight, and would poll a heavy vote. Some were rash enough to claim that Schneider would defeat John Gehan in the Ninth, but those who had looked the ground over recognized the kick amongst the Scandinavians there and conceded Gehan's election. In the Tenth, a Republican ward, they had hopes of electing Pratt, though knowing that there were so many independent candidates in the field, conceded that Adams had a good fighting chance. In the Eleventh they said they were sure to elect D. W. Sullivan. Their forces were demoralized, and the most they could do was to hire a few carriages and cry fraud. FOR ALDERMEN AT LARGE. FOR ALDERMEN AT LARGE. The Ticket Which the Democrats Will Elect To-Day. There is no doubt among the Demo- cratic party leaders as to what will be the result of to-day's election. The Democrats are reasonably sure ot the i entire ticket at large and at least , seven ward aldermen, which will give them a clean majority in "the' new .^ council. There will be not less . than fifty split tickets in the field, but the straight ticket is the ticket for Democrats and for all others who wish to indorse the principles of honest government, upheld by the Democratic party. William Iiamm will get one of the largest votes of any man on the ticket. He is invincible by reason of his per- sonal popularity and his brilliant rec- ord. Charles II. Petsch will poll a vote that will surprise his most sanguine supporters. '1 he Republicans have cen- tered the fight upon him and their organs have villified and abused him, but the people of St. Paul, among whom he has grown up, and whom he has faithfully represented in the council, know how much truth there is in these charges. He will be vindicated to-day by an over- whelming majority. John Dowlan has been many years in the council. His integrity and ability are alike unquestioned. Bernard Ryan is the representative of the workingmen. He has championed their cause in the council, and they will reciprocate. Joseph MInea, the West Side alder- man, can give his attention to the rest of the ticket. His own election is con- sidered an assured fact. L. N. Dion is an early settler and a self-made man. His name on the ticket adds strength to it, and it is fig- ured that he will go through with a rush. The Latest Bluff. The Republican central committee put up its last bluff yesterday evening by posting half-sheet circulars in conspic- uous places offering (in red ink on white paper) a "reward of $100 for the arrest and conviction of any person attempting illegal voting or tampering with the ballot boxes." They expect by this dis- play to exculpate the g. o. p. from any suspicion of fraudulent work, but the people have heard their cry so often that it is becoming a veritable chestnut, and will not go down. Political Points. Ernest Seeley. .< the caterer at the Gettysburg panorama, yesterday exhib- ited a steel engraving of a bull pup, wearing a big muzzle. The lines under the picture read, "For the safety of the public," and to this the facetious saloon- keeper added the election headlines of the twilight twinkler last night, "The last charge," with the Dispatch head- ing. It was very suggestive and at- tracted much attention. Frank Brosseau denies the statement published in the West St. Paul Times that he "will take off his coat and go to work for Bryant." He was a candidate at large and has withdrawn, but he is a Democrat, and will work for the straight ticket. _^ A Vessel Lost. San Francisco, April 30.— The Pa cific Coast Steamship company's steamer Queen of the Pacific, which left San Francisco yesterday afternoon for southern coast points, arrived at Port Harford at 0:30 this morning with her hold full of water.

The Water at a Standstill and No Further Trouble An- ticipated. Buildings Going: Up at a Live- ly Rate in the City of Mankato. The Des Moines Leader and Homestead Burned Out — Other News. Special to the Globe. Eau Claire, Wis., April SO— The Chippewa river here is almost at a standstill to-night, near the eighteen- foot mark, with signs of subsiding grad- ually. Well-posted lumbermen believe there will be no higher water, though the river will be too high for safety for several days. The damage i is small in the destruction of property compared with the stoppage of business. The Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Valley division below Eau Claire suffers two or three weeks' additional loss of business. A train is cut off at Careyville by a washout in front and rear. The saw mills and iron works cannot start for some time. A few inches more would shut down the city water works. About 200 dwellings and business houses are .flooded here. The hundred or more families who have been driven from their houses are still afraid to move back. About $8,000 worth of lumber in rafts has been carried away, but some of it will probably be recovered. The Empire Lumber company lost a quan- tity of lumber last night. The gas works are surrounded by water. The streets on each side of the Chippewa and the approaches of three bridges are flooded and impassable. At Porter- ville, the little village below this city, seventy-five families were driven out by the flood, and are quartered in the school houses, the farm houses and in the city. A snow storm set in last night, continu- ing till noon to-day. Four or five inches fell, but has melted. NO more trouble EXPECTED. Special to the Globe. Chippewa Falls, Wis., April 30.— Last night a snow storm set in and about an inch fell, but had no effect on the Chippewa, which is at a standstill at about twelve feet.

Special to the Globe. Mankato, April 30.— An error in the special telegram from here which ap- peared in the Sunday Globe made the new Saulspaugh hotel $10,000 instead of $1,000. The valuation of the site alone, donated by the city, is nearly §15,000. The new building will be at least four stories high and will be a model of modern architectural design. It will supply a long-needed want. In addi- tion to this work has been resumed upon the new Blue Earth county court house, which will be pushed to comple- tion. The Young Men's Investment com- pany, a recently organized corporation, is erecting an elegant four-story busi- ness block on the corner of Walnut and Second streets.

The Baptist society will complete their new church edifice early in the summer, work hav ing already been begun upon it. George E. Brett,' the veteran dry good mer- chant, will build a fine residence. Arch- itects say that more plans and specifica tions have been sought than ever before at this time of the year. On the whole, the coming season bids fair to be one of unequaled activity in building and im provement. Des Moines Leader Burned Out. Special to the Globe. Des Moines, lo., April 30.— About 2:30 this afternoon fire caught in the mailing department of the Leader build- ing, immediately back of the counting room, and in a few minutes the build ing was in a mass of flames, several girls in the bindery and in the Iowa Homestead office had narrow escapes.

Sioux City, lo., April 30.— Another move was made in the Sioux City & St. Paul railroad land matter to-day that is of interest. It will be remembered that these lands were declared forfeited some time ago and were thrown open to set- tlement under homestead, most of them being taken . by parties who had either bargained for them of the railroad com- pany or simply moved on and "squat- ted." Several weeks ago two ejectment ' suits were begun by the company against settlers, and to-day 102 suits were begun in the district court, cover ing a good share of the lands in this county. These suits are in the nature of an. injunction to prevent the occup ants from perfecting their titles under the ' homestead law. The petitions set The man who assigns In the tall tra la, Has something to do with the case*; For he has to let up on his brag, tra la, And hang up the auctioneer's flag, tra la, Directly in front of his place. And that's what is meant when we say a man is A fool if he's not advertising his ZZZ, "biz"; Tra la la la la, tra la la la la, tra la la la, tra la. NO. 122. , up that the allowing of defendants to file homestead and pre-emption claims on these lands casts a cloud on the com- pany's title, and the court is asked to re- strain defendants from further interfer- ence with the company's title or claim to the lands. The injunction proceed- ings will bring the whole question of title into court at once. A New Town Hall. Special to the Globe. Adrian, April 30— Dr. Wilbur S.

Mankato, Minn., April 30.— A some. what disastrous fire occurred in the works of the Mankato Mattress company this afternoon. The stock on hand was almost totally consumed, and great dam- age was done the building. The lirq originated in the picking room and was probably caused by friction. The flames spread very rapidly and but fo* the timely response of all the fire com- panies the property would have been totally consumed. The loss on stoctf amounts to $1,200 and on building about $800. Himmelman & Co., the proprieJ tors, with their accustomed enterprise, will at once repair the injury. c=_____i, Didn't Burn the Bugs. Special to the Globe. Red Wing, April Some time ag< the ex-president of the Goodhue County Farmers' club advocated that as soon at spring opened the farmers burn all rut* bish and stubble on their fields in ordel to destroy the chinch bugs. His advic< was widely copied by papers through* out the state. Saturday his pian was given a trial on the farm ol F. Wallauer, in Hay Creek, and i\ was proved to be possessed of no spe. cial benefit. The fire in the field simply warmed the ground sufficiently t« awaken the bugs from their torpid state, and they congregated in large number! on the rocks. The heat did not pene< trate the ground sufficiently to kill them. No it lie Id Notes. Special to the Globe.
