SAINT PAUL. CHIT CHAT CORNER. . "The recent letter of Edmund Rice," said Railroad Commissioner Becker, "is in keeping with the character of the man. He seeks no office, but is willing to serve his party, or, to put it in his own language, 'obey orders if it breaks owners.' In his case the office' seeks the man. Mr. Rice is pretty well ad vanced in years, and for that reason may not be able to make as thorough a canvass as a younger and stronger man, nevertheless I think he can carry Minnesota, and his nom ination will harmonize all factions. As to whom the Republicans will nomi nate it is hard to say. Knute Nelson has stated that he desires no further honors at the hands of his party. . He has been offered the attorneyship of the Manitoba road at a salary of 115,000 a year, and it. is probable, that he will accept it. I hardly think Merriam will secure the nomination, although he is working hard for it. The name of Alexander Ramsey has been mentioned, but 1 think the ex-governor has received all the honors that he wanted. From personal experience 1 know him to be an adroit politician, and were he nomi nated against Edmund Rice the outcome would be difficult to forecast. * s* Yesterday forenoon a life-size picture of the late j. W. McClung was placed in the chamber of commerce. This picture is of the same size as those of the presi dents of the board, which are framed and hung up in the meeting room, and is framed in the same manner as are those of the other presidents. It is doubtful whether the chamber ever had a member who brought about practical results that were of as much importance to St. Paul as J. W. McClung. .Many propositions made by him were so far in advance of the times that they were scouted at as visionary and impossible. One instance will suffice to illustrate: Twelve or fourteen years ago Mr. Mc- Clung introduced in the chamber a reso lution to take steps to have the . Fort Snelling bridge constructed, and to ask lor $65,000 from congress in aid of the project. The proposition was looked upon by the best men in the chamber as ridiculous. Mr. McClung persisted, however, and the bridge is a reality.and those who ridiculed the idea think dif ferently now. * * J. B. Hoxsie appeared yesterday morning in the board of trade as a dyna miter of a very pronounced type. Owing partly to the very warm weather and to being busy, some of the members have been late in getting to the board, and some have failed to put in an appear ance for several days. Mr. Hoxsie yes terday morning called the attention of the board to this fact, and proposed to fine all members that failed to answer at roll call. This suggestion met the approval of the members that were present, but, after talking the matter over it was concluded that it would be better to wait till more members were present, and the matter was therefore, postponed till to-day: * * The National Savings, Loan and Building association of St. Paul has been incorporated, with a capital of $5, --000,00 0.. The nature of tlie business will be the accumulation of funds, to be paid on the basis of monthly install ments on its shares of stock, and loan ing such funds, with its net. accumula tions or other net earnings, to its' mem bers upon mortgage or other real estate securities, or upon the pledge of the stock of its members for the purpose of enabling them to purchase, build upon or otherwise improve real estate. The incorporators are M. 1). Miller,' Wm. L. Ilackett, Frank P. Blair, Win. P. Kirke and Chas. E. Hamilton, all of St. Paul. * ** * George B. Classen— The man who bought Bell Boy and paid 550,000 for him knew what he was about. The. only risk is the chance of dying, and in that event the purchaser would be a heavy loser. The colt has thirty mares booked to him at $500 each, which will produce a pretty lively interest. He will make for his owner this year not less than $20,000. * ■» The story is told of Harry Hope, su perintendent of telegraph for the Omaha road, that he has been out at White Bear for the last few days trying to learn how to swim. One day lie" got out on a little craft In about three feet of water and slipped off, getting almost drowned. He now starts in at the shore and keeps wading until the dan ger line is reached. * * * Dr. Guernon, collector of customs, has removed his headquarters from St. Vincent to this city, and yesterday took the chair which has been occupied for some time by John Farrington. Now the visitors to the federal building will be met with the smiling rotund face of Dr. Guernon every day. What Mr. Far rington will do since the order for the removal of headquarters, lie has not yet decided. Mr. Masterson will continue to perform the deputy's duties and no changes in the force of the office are contemplated. ST. PAUL REAL ESTATE.

GRUSHEDJJNDERAGAR A Soldier Who Was Not Used to the Cable. This Warning May Break Up a Prevalent Habit. Arrest of a Party of the Bass Lake Rioters. Honors Shown to a Visitor by His Brother Knights. Another accident happened on the cable car line last evening, when Will iam Thompson, a private in Company I), Third infantry, was instantly killed. Like the last episode of the kind, it was caused by the victim's attempting to jump on the Cars while they were in motion. The accident occurred at the Seven Corners, and Thompson was standing near the electric light pole when the cable car came along. He started to get on the grip car, but miss ing the handle he reached for, he slipped, falling or sliding between the grip and the car. The wheels of the car passed over his chest, crushing it terribly. He was carried .into a neighboring drug store, but died a few minutes after the accident. Coroner Quinn was notified and sent the body to the morgue, where an inquest will be held this morning. The deceased was about twenty-eight years of age. ; Almost every day men narrowly es cape being injured or killed while at tempting to jump on the cable cars when in motion. Only yesterday after noon one of the conductors had a nar row escape. Some of the conductors have a habit of jiimpingoff the grip and catching the car rather than walk back, and the conductor in question did this near the corner of Fourth and Wabasha streets. He caught hold of the posts, but his right hand slipped, and down he went. Everybody thought he was going under the wheels, but by some means he pulled himself out of danger. Speaking about the accident, Judge Egan said last night that something would have to be done to prevent per sons from jumping on the cars, and it was probable that the authorities would take steps with that object in view. BASS LAKE'S BATTALION Broken Up by tne -Arrest of Pour Sports. The authorities are determined to pursue the Bass lake disturbance of Sunday, last and place the blame of the fight where it belongs. Yesterday a warrant was sworn out against nine men supposed to have taken part in the fight.- It was placed in the hands of Deputy Sheriffs Lunkenheimer and Roop, who at once proceeded to Bass lake. Only four of the number wanted could be found. These were Charles Boggs, the proprietor of the place where the fight occurred; Minor Rogers. John Doe, alias Montana Jack, and Charles Hart. The prisoners were brought to the city, and the last three were at once placed under lock and key. Bogus, however, had two bondsmen ready to bail him out at any . cost, these being Alderman Conley and J. B. Flannigan. Before he could have a bond executed, however, it was necessary to have one of the municipal court judges and the county attorney. The latter was found but it was not until 11:30 o'clock last night before Judge Schoonmaker was driven up to the jail. Then there was a little ses-sion of court IX THK. SHERIFF'S OFFICE. The only question was what should be the amount of bail. Judge Egan said that the prisoner, with three other men, were charged with assault with intent to kill, it being in the first degree and the penalty from five to ten years in the penitentiary. He though? the bail should . be $2,500. Mr. Ives, representing the prisoner, thought that was too much in asmuch as he had not tried to get out of the way, and wouldn't try to do so. The bond was fixed at $2,000. Aid. Conley and J. B. Flannigan signed it, and Charles Boggs was released. Dr. Craig, who is attending Johnson, said last night that Johnson is getting along remarkably well, with very good chances for bis recovery. He was able to sit up yesterday, and at his present rate of improving will be out in a few days. CAUGHT AT THE DEPOT, After He Had Made Arrangements to Leave. Deputy Sheriff Lunkenheimer had quite a chase after William Eckhardt, who assaulted E. M. Erickson with , a hoe near White Bear lake Tuesday. Eckhardt was preparing to skip, leav ing his trunk, wages and everything else. The deputy, however, got a man who knew Eckhardt by sight, and to gether they followed him to the union depot, where he was about to take the train for Chicago. He is now safe in county jail. ■'■■■' ; - The" victim of the assault is lying in a dangerous condition and can hardly recover. Eleven small pieces of bone were removed irom his head after he had been struck with the hoe. CONSIGNED TO CALVARY. TheXast Sad Rites Over an Esti • mable Lady. V. The funeral of Miss Helen Jeanette Robert, whose death was announced yesterday, took place from the residence yesterday, being largely attended. Two carriages laden with the most exquisite flowers, the offerings of friends, fol lowed the remains to the grave. A requiem mass was celebrated at the cathedral ot .10 o'clock. When the ser vices were over Father Shanley, who had known the young lady from childhood, stepped to the altar, rail and recounted he noble virtues and ardent piety of the deceased. He dwelt on the uncertainty* of death's visit and the necessity of con stant preparation.- The congregation was deeply moved during the course of his remarks. A number of young friends of the deceased, dressed in deep mourn ing, preceded the casket as it was car ried'to the hearse. The remains were interred in Calvary cemetery, the fol lowing gentlemen acting as pallbearers: Messrs. Breen, Kasson, Maben, Boet tinger, Morrison, Burke, Briggs and O'Brien.

THE SAINT PAUL DAILY GLOBE:" FRIDAY '.; MORNING, AUGUST 3, ' 1833. RAILWAY LEGISLATION. A Committee Appointed to Mem orialize Congress. The Twin Cities' joint committee held a short session in the St. Paul chamber of commerce yesterday afternoon when the matter of railway legislation was considered. Capt. O. C. Merriman, of Minneapolis, was called to ; the chair and addressed the committee on the subject of the bill now before congress in reference to the Soo road. If the present bill passed it would place the Soo where it would be unable to com pete with the ' Canadian Pacific. The Soo road is, at pres ent, able to make competitive rates with the Canadian Pacific or any of the Western lines, and Minneapolis and St. Paul, were thereby afforded a fair chance to compete with ■ larger Eastern cities for Western trade. Any legisla tion affecting the Soo was of vital im portance TO TnE TWIN CITIES. After an informal talk on the subject, Senator Davis, who was present, sug gested the appointment of a committee to prepare a memorial to be" sent to congress opposing the proposed bill. On motion of Judge Flandrau, it was decided to name a committee of five, one of whom should -be the chairman, Capt. Merriam, the other four to be chosen equally from the two cities, to prepare such a memorial. W. B. Dean and Judge Flandrau were chosen from St. Paul, and John S. Pillsbury and Anthony Kelly from Minneapolis. The following were announced as a com mittee on the question of fare between the two cities: 1). R. Noyes, 11. F. Stevens and J. C.Reno. The meeting then adjourned subject to the call of the chairman, the next meeting to be held at Minneapolis. CLEVER COMEDIAN COOTE Has a Benefit at the People's Theater. Notwithstanding the heat and the threatening aspect of the skies there was a large attendance at the benefit given to Mr. Charles Coote at the Peo ple's theater last night. The perform ance was one that fully compensated* those who faced the elements to testify in this substantial manner to the popu larity of the clever young comedian. Part I. of the programme consisted of vocal selections by members of the Amphion club, including the song, "Only the Sound of a Voice," by Prof. Colville, and "Tom Bowling," by J. F. Merrill. Prof. Titcomb was tiie accompanist. Part 11. consisted of the balcony scene from - "Romeo and Juliet." with Mr. Russell and Mrs. Cory in the respective roles; a recitation, "Larca, or a Texas Cowboy," by Miss Lillian Lewis; a song by Mr. Doherty and recitations by Miss Deaves and Mr. Johnson. Part 111. consisted of the second act of "Our Boys" by members of the People's theater stock company, assisted by Miss Adah Hawkins. Every feature of the performance was entertaining, but Miss Adah Deaves carried off tiie principal honors of the evening. Her recitation of the "Dutch Soldier" caught the audience like' a whirlwind, and in response to a double encore she sang an amusing Dutch song and exe cuted an artistic clog dance. Ben Johnson's recitation . was one of his finest efforts, * and was given in most finished style. Miss Lewis' recitation was a most delightful feature of the entertainment. She is a young lady of superb stage presence and a most accomplished elocutionist. Tonight the Derformance of "London by Night" will be continued at the Peo ple's as the regular bill for the week.

T007 : NOT SURPRISED AT SHILOH. ■ ; 7 07^i'r Commander Rea Tells of the Glories and Aims of the Grand Army, of the Republic. '; .W "Tramp, tramp, tramp, the boys are marching,", were the inspiring strains which echoed through the groves at Mahtomedi yesterday. It was "Grand Army Day" for the Chautauquans, and it was also the concluding day of the assembly. Gen. B. M. Prentiss and Maj. John: P. Rea, commander-in-chief •of the G. A. R., were the principal speakers of the day. -•: :-•*■: ;•*= 1 There were signs of a breaking up oif the little colony, which has settled sb peaceably during the past fortnight aft Mahtomedi. Huge trunks were being packed, tents leveled to the ground, and farewells made. A large portion of visitors spent their last hours of the as sembly in other than intellectual en joyment. --ffggff»m 7 " The Battle of Shiloh " was the sub ject of Gen. Prentiss' address, and upon which he spoke for two hours. The lec ture was preceded by a number of war songs, "Rally round the flag," solo by Prof. C. C. Case; "Tenting to-night on the old camp ground," solo by Miss Catherine Wall; "Marching through Georgia." solo by W. L. Davidson ; "The star spangled banner," solo by Mrs. Foote, of Chicago; and "Tramp, tramp, tramp," solo by Prof. Case. Dr. J. H. Murphy, of St. Paul, intro duced Gen. Prentiss to the assembled company, and said: "All can read of battles in newspapers and histories, but to get anything accurate in relation to any battle we must have some one to talk and tell us what he has seen him self. The battle of Shiloh was one of the most important and one of the first battles inTTie war of the rebellion; and about no other battle has there been more misconception IX THE PUBLIC MIND." General Prentiss, who was accorded a royal reception, began: "More silly things have been said, falsehoods told and cruel utterances given to the American people concern ing the battle of Shiloh than any Dattle that was fought. lam here, not as an egotist, but perfectly free to say to the American people 'I know more of Shiloh than any living man, and ought to. The men that I com manded commenced that battle the morning of April 0, 1863, and those same men ended it as the sun was setting in the West, and yet for twenty years in American- history the youth have been' taught that they were cap tured early in the day. The story that we were attacked in our tents and surprised before our lines were made 'is- all a myth, for the battle of Shiloh began a mile in front of any encampment. No such battle as Shiloh was ever fought upon the face of the earth, for more men were killed and wounded in that battle upon that good Sunday in proportion to the number of men engaged than fell or were wounded in any battle that we have in history. You have been led to believe that more men fell at Gettysburg! It is true that more men were slain, but the percent age of those killed and wounded at Gettysburg to the number of men en gaged was barely 8, whereas at Shiloh it was ?A0 per cent." > During his address Gen. Prentiss re ferred to several comrades in the Shiloh battle, who were among his hearers. Two of these were Lieut. T. F. Pender and Capt. E. M. Van Dnzee, of St. Paul. The latter was also confined in the same prison with Gen. Prentiss for six months. They met yesterday for the ; j FIRST TI.MK SINCE TIIE WAS. ' Rev. Wilbur L. Davidson led the com pany in singing "My Country, 'Tis of Thee," when Maj., John P. Rea was formally introduced. The commander of the G. A. R. said: "I was one of those men who got up to the battle of Shiloh Monday evening after the fighting was over, and in time to hear from the stragglers the army story of how Prentiss' division had been captured in their tents on the morning of Sunday. 1 never knew the full story of the service rendered by that division until I heaid Gen. Prentiss' description of the battle a few years ago, and then I hunted up the reports of Buell, ("rant, Johnston and Sherman, and every fact given of that battle bears out every statement made by Gen. Prentiss. You may take the story of any forlorn hope of any charge ever made, you may take the story of the old guard at Waterloo, but the heroic valor displayed by these men— trained soldiers of a dozen years; trained under the greatest martial leader of the world —the heroism of those men on that day at Waterloo, did not equal the valor of the beardless boys gathered up from cots on the prairies in Ohio, Missouri and Illinois that stood with General Prentiss in the bat tle of Shiloh. They stood against the forces of the Southern army for twelve hours, and were not captured until their ammunition had exhausted ; and yet for twenty years they have been under the ban of having been surprised ! It is not of such scenes as this the associations ot these men, comprising the Union army, in scenes like those which General Prentiss has depicted, that there has grown that fraternal love which has crystallized into the organization known, as the Grand Army of the Republic. It is the crystallized love of men who shared together the "» 'GRANDEST EVENTS OF HISTORY ' You may take have a dozen modern European wars and congregate them into one and you will not have a war equal to that which was fought out here by the untrained soldiers of America. And what did they fight for? Not for classes, not because they were devoted to the defense of some military hero— they fought for an ideal, and that was the ideal which to-day underlies the civilization of this land, which has given us the. progression that we have; for the establishment of a govern ment of the people resting upon all men; to establish on this Western continent a government based upon the manhood of men and the womanhood of women. That, is the idea, and the time is coming when there ' will be not a 150,000,000 on this conti- ; nent, but hundreds of millions of people! : living under our flag- in the great • brotherhood of men on a Diane lifted! ,J up by the impetus which is given to - a laud by the recognition of the - value of government higher than the mountain peaks of a fa- - vored few of a half century ago. ' Members of the G. A. R. have played '• no little part in bringing about this ' condition of things. That is the flag," concluded Major Rea, pointing to the ' stars and stripes; "no other flag than ] that should wave anywhere in this land. " : It represents the power, the dignity' ' the glory of a gieat, free people, grow- ; ing greater every day."

WORMS IN WHEAT. ' . Farmers Alarmed at the Ravages V '.'■' of a Pest. '00. Several packages containing speci mens of the army worm have been sent to Gov. McGill, and he has been suppli cated from all quarters to suppress this new enemy. The farmers have become .alarmed, and have written from various points asking that, something be done to prevent the ravages of this new enemy. Tuesday evening the governor sent Prof. Lugger, the state entomolo gist, to Henniug, Otter Tail county to examine into the situation complaints having reached him that the army worm was devastating the wheat fields of that section. lie has since, telegraphed him to continue his searches and investigations in other sections, especially at Frazee and Fisher, Polk county, also in Hubbard iouuty. Prof. Lugger yesterday sent a report in which he says: "The "cut worms doing damage in the blooming* region of Henning prove to be the gen uine army worm. As all the larva* are now almost full grown they will not be seen any more after Aug. 6. In fact, .most of them have entered the ground already for pupation." .
