JUST FOUM IT OUT.
A Surprising* Discovery by- Members of the Presi dents' Agreement. Not All the Presidents Have Signed—The Wisconsin Central Out. No Definite Action Yet Re garding- the C, B. & N.s Flour Cut. A. F. Walker to Be Chairman of the Presidents' Asso ciation. Chicago, March 2.— lt has been the general impression that the presidents' agreement was signed. by the presidents of the various roads parties to the same. it is learned, however, that of the seventeen signatures, only nine are by presidents; the other seven are by vice presidents of various degrees and general managers. Some surprise will be caused by the discovery that the Wisconsin Central is not among those who signed the document. It has been claimed all along that Gen eral Manager Mcl len had signed the agreement for that company. The Wis consin Central, however, according to a communication from President Marvin Hughitt to the presidents of the various roads, will sign the agreement, and he says a copy of it has been forwarded to Vice President Abbott for his signature. He also states that copies have been forwarded to the Denver & Rio Grande and Denver & Rio Grande Western, with the request that they become parties to the agreement. Some of the roads have also signed for lines which they control or own. Above, the signatures of the St. Louis A- San Fran cisco appears the following: "With same proviso as previous signature to this agreement.'" The "previous sig nature" is the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe, but there is nothing to indicate that it signed the agreement conditionally. The impression is that the proviso means that the Fort Scott & Gulf and Kansas —Texas roads must become parties to the agreement before the signatures of those roads shall be come binding. It is also observed that Jay Gould's signature is not attached, but that Third Vice President Newman signed on his own behalf for the Mis souri Pacific. . ..- r \\7. FLOUR RATES. The C, B. & X. Cut Discussed by the Western Freight Associa tion. • I'lLr- 1 Chicago, March 2.— The Western & Northwestern divisions of the Western Freight association closed a two days' session this evening. Discussion of the proposed reduction in flour rates, by the C, B. & N., took up a considerable portion of to-day's session, but no conclusion was reached as to what course the association would pur sue. It was generally admitted that a readjustment of rates would be neces sary on wheat and its products from points east from Minneapolis and St. Paul. What concerns the Chi cago lines more than this is a report that the management of the Manitoba is considering tlie advisability of milling in-transit rales on wheat from Dakota points to Duluth, via Minneapolis. Should such a step be taken, it would complicate matt ters considerably. Another question before the meet ing and which failed of solution, was whether there shall De a reduction in lumber rates from Minne sota and Wisconsin to lowa points. The rates will probably be reduced un less the railroads succeed in obtaining an advance of the lowa rates, and of that there seems to be but little hope. The matter of adjusting interstate rates on lowa business is left to the general managers of the roads, who will meet March 11. "WALKER'S SERVICES WISHED As Chairman of the New Inter state Association — He Will Con sider the Matter. New YoitK.March 2.— The committee appointed by the new interstate asso ciation, known as the president's asso ciation, to tender the position of chairman of the association to Col. A. F. Walker, were in conference during the whole of this afternoon in the Windsor hotel. Besides Col. Walker, three members of the committee were present— President Hughitt, of the Chi cago & Northwestern Gen. John Mc- Nulta, of Bloomington. 111., receiver of the Wabash and C. Mullin, vice presi dent of the Chicago „ Alton railroad. The fourth member of the committee, Roswell Miller, president of the Chi cago, Milwaukee & St. Paul, was pre vented being present by important business. At 5:30 it was announced that after the subject was discussed in all its bearings with Col. Walker, that gentleman said he would take a week or ten days to consider the offer and W*9uld let the committee know his de cision at the end of that time. The new association includes twenty rail roads west, northwest and southwest of Chicago. Mr. Garrett's Health Improving. Baltimore, Md., March 2.— Robert Garrett will leave Ringwood on Wed nesday next, for Mexico, accompanied by Mrs. Garrett, Dr. Jacobs.two attend ants and several intimate friends. The party will go by the Erie railroad via llornellsville and Salamanca, mak ing a short tour of the states. Mr. Gar rett's health is now very much im proved, and he is able to take short rides through the surrounding country with pleasure and benefit. His old at tendants, who have been with him dur ing his illness, have been discharged, and two new men have been engaged. Mr. Garrett having requested it, as he wishes new faces about him. True to His First Love. George B. Clason, who for the last five years has been the city ticket agent for the Milwaukee, has iesigned that position, and will be transferred to Milwaukee to a position in connection with the operating department of the line. Mr. Clason has been connected with the road tor thirty years, and in 1881 came to St. Paul as superintendent of the River division. When the con solidation of offices was effected he was transferred to his present position, and has since filled it with credit to him self, and satisfaction to the company. Mr. Clason had under consideration nu merous offers from other lines, but wisely decided to remain with the Mil waukee, being one of the oldest em ployes on the road. Side Tracks. W. 11. Dixon, of the Milwaukee road, lost his pocketbook containing a large number of passes Friday evening, and as they are of no use" to anyone but himself, hopes they will be returned. A. B.

Special to the Globe. Mankato, Minn., March 2.— John Dreher, one of Mankato's oldest settlers, died this morning of old age. He was eighty-five years of age, and had resided in this city for thirty years. He was born in Germany and came to Blue Earth county when the country was but little settled. He leaves a family living in this city. Thomas Jefferson, a young son of Adam Jefferson, of this city, had the misfortune to be trowu from a horse and suffered a compound fracture of the right leg. _ - SAINT PAUL. . TOWN TALK. Lippiiicott's Magazine^-for February contained a few paragraphs on a sub ject which has received a good deal of attention lately— immorality in fiction. These remarks were drawn out by the publication in England of the defend ant's brief in the celebrated case of Rcgina vs. Vizetelly, which suit was brought against the publisher of a lib eral translation of some of tEmil Zola's latest works. The brief contained copi ous extracts from works without which no gentleman's library is considered complete— Shakespeare, Fielding, By ron, Smollett, Swift, the Bible and others— showing that the works of Emile Zola contain nothing worse than those of the finest classical English authors. Reference is editorially made to the writings of certain American authors, Ella Wheeler Wilcox- and Amelie Rives-Chanler among others, showing that if Emit Zola's works are so evil that they should be suppressed, those of the writers referred to should suffer the same fate. * -* •a The question naturally arises, "What should a novel be." Undoubtedly whatever portrays life as it is, is legiti mate, and the more the realities of life are made known, cither through the newspapers or in works of fiction, the better for the world at large. It is bet ter that the general public should know what is really going on in their midst than that they should remain in blissful ignorance. The more publicity given to the condition of society of all grades, the easier it will be to remedy the dis eases that corrupt it and the easier it will be to avoid contamination. * -* . St.Paul and its vicinity have furnished during the past few weeks several start ling stories of crime of every sort, sto ries of infidelity to matrimonial vows, of murder, suicide and sins - of every type. Some of the stories had to be toned down in . the editorial rooms of the papers, there being details too hor rible to publish. That these crimes are of every-day occurrence, a glance at any morning paper will reveal, and they show a condition of society that is, to say the least of it, grave. * During the past two weeks plots have been furnished by the papers for innu merable novels of the Zolaist type. By simply elaborating any one of these stories, by adhering absolutely to facts, and without the exercise of any imag ination, a novel could be written which would vi« with any of Zola's or The ophile Gautier's for sensational realism. 11 these gangrenous sores did »ot exist in the body politic, it might be right to call a halt, but when yellow fever is raging in a community who would con ceal it? These stories are not calculated to harm the innocent mind— rather are they awful lessons of warning. What innocent girl ever went astray through reading "Nana"? What young man's soul was ever ruined by a perusal of Juvenal and Aristophanes? These authors simply state the truth as it is; their works may not be the sort of stuff for a child to make its mental pabulum. * * The dedication of Alphonse Daudct's "Sappho" shows what the author of a work at which Mrs. Grundy would turn up her eyes in holy horror thinks of its suitability for the young mind. He says: "To my two sons, when they shall have attained twenty years of age." He wrote this book, which Anthony Comstock would consign to the flames if he could see it, as a little parental talk to his two sons. '-. :.-7 * * When such things are going on all over the United States, right here in St. Paul, why cry out against works which simply state facts. Remember the motto of the order of the Garter: "Honi soit gui mal y pense," "Evil be to him who evil thinks." Those who are the loudest in their denunciation of this class of literature are those whose own lives would not show up well under the brilliant electric light of investiga tion. * * * A curious case of legal technicalities obscuring the main issue occurred be fore Judge Wilkin the other day. The judge had pity on the jury, and in structed them to bring in a verdict for a certain amount of money. Several of the jurymen said afterwards that, had the case been left to them to decide, they might have wrangled till Christ mas, as the rights of the case were so lost sight of during the trial, under a frothy mass of legality and points of law, that the jury knew nearly as much about the case as the famous jury which was impaneled in the trial of the Knave of Hearts for stealing tarts in "Alice in Wonderland." * * * Mayor Smith loses no opportunity for sticking his knife into the ribs of the chamber of commerce. He evidently hates that body worse than the devil hates holy water. During the discus sion, at yesterday afternoon's meeting of the Ramsey county delegation, of the bill for raising the salary of the court stenographer, the mayor sol emnly moved that the matter be re ferred to the' chamber of commerce. After the meeting had enjoyed its laugh, the mayor as solemnly withdrew his motion. : v "■ - * * * * A stranger like Max O'Rell, for in stance, visiting this country during last fall, would naturally thought that the result of the election was a matter of life or death to every business in the country. But what difference will the change of presidents make to us here in St. Paul? Tuesday next will see busi ness going on precisely in the same way as it has done for years. No one will be richer or poorer for the change. Whence then arises the wild excitement of elec tion time? Americans are proverbially devoted to business, yet we allow an event which will not affect our business one cent's worth to turn everything up side down for months. < * - ■ Lent commences Wednesday and the good people ot St. Paul will bid adieu to dancing and other frivolities, but will continue to sin just as they do all the est of the year, cyvs-s-i * ■» "It is an ill wind that blows nohodv good," as the baldheaded legislator said as he put on his glasses to watch the ankles of a pretty woman picking her way across the muddy street.

AS VIEWED IN DULUTH. Tbe Proposed Forfeiture of the Duluth & Winnipeg Grant. WHY IT COULDN'T BE DONE. A Vigorous Protest Against the Scheme to Cripple Northwestern Min nesota. ' --, - . Special to the Globe. "'■;! V'j; : '.'■:. % - Duluth, March Every Duluthian is watching keenly the progress of the measure to forfeit the Duluth & Winni peg grant. There is no other matter in which all take so great a personal in terest, and if the present legislature does nothing else for the Northwestern portion of the state its work will be considered as not in vain, if it gives to the development of the vast region to the northwest of this city the land which it is proposed by some to divert from the purpose for which it was set apart. Interviews with all leading citizens attest this fact. Secretary W. F. Phelps, of the chamber of commerce, in consultation with the Globe corre spondent gave his views pointedly, and emphatically in regard thereto, and in doing so only emphasized the opinion of every citizen whose lot is cast with the growth and development of North western Minnesota, ln substance Sec retary Phelps' views are appended: WHAT PHELPS SATS. j The passage by the legislature of the proposed act of forfeiture of the Duluth & Winnipeg land grant would be a measure of flagrant injustice to North ern Minnesota. The railway develop ment of the southern and central por tions of the state has been largely stimulated by liberal land grants in behalf of the roads centering at the Twin Cities. The St.Pau»k& Sioux City, now the Omaha, the Stl**Faul & Pacific, now the Manitoba, the Northern Pa cific, the St. Paul & Duluth, the river division of the Milwaukee & St. Paul, the Winona & St. Peter, now the Min nesota division of the Northwestern,, each received enormous land grants from the government. It cannot be disputed that these land grants were of inestimable value, not only to the roads themselves, but, indirectly, to the Twin Cities on the Mississippi river. Most of these roads run through the open prairie country, where railway construction is easy and comparatively inexpensive. On the contrary, that portion of the state lying north of a line running due west from Duluth is a forest country, of irreguiar topography, with more or less of : . j' ROCKY RIDGES and other obstructions, rendering the expense of railway construction far greater than that of the other portions of Minnesota. Superadded to this, how ever, is the fact that the section named probably contains more natural wealth in farm, forest and mine, than the en tire territory south of the line described. This portion of the state is almost desti tute of transportation facilities by rail. To say that this small grant should be denied the people of the Lake Superior country to assist in opening up this region, by providing adequate railway facilities, is to fly in the face of justice and fair play. This is said without reference to the claims either of the Duluth _ Winnipeg or the Duluth & Iron Range roads. The citizens of Du luth are- friendly to both these enter prises, and desire greatly the promotion of each in its particrlar field. There is need enough for all the railroads that are likely to be built during the next ten years, north and northwest ol Lake Superior. The legislature of this state, the people of the Twin Cities and of Southern Minnesota ought to be JUST AND LIBERAL enough to concede the equity of allow ing this comparatively insignificant grant to be applied to its intended pur poses. lam surprised at the attitude assumed by Gen. Baker in the discus- : sion of this question. To add this small grant to the lands set apart for the creation of a school fund is a proposi tion too puerile for serious considera tion. Two sections in each township of this great state are already being ap plied to that purpose, and the fund eventually to be realized therefrom will amout probably to not less than from $18,000,000 to 20,000,000. This surely is enough to aid in building up as good a system of common schools as any state in the Union possesses. On the other hand, is not something due to the work of utilizing the natural re sources of the lake region, which will * add untold millions to the productive wealth of the state? The idea advanced by Gen. Baker, that because all roads lead to Duluth, that her.-:_V;--S GEOGRAPHICAL AND COMMERCIAL position are so strong that such aid is not needed, is an argument in the nature of a boomerang. We may, therefore, infer that he believes that the positioitof the Twin Cities is so weak in its natural advantages that these enormous grants were necessary to se cure to them the benefits upon which they have grown great and rich. lean not believe that my friend is wholly sincere in the position he has taken. I think the people of Minnesota and of Dakota are more anxious to secure ample railway connections with the head of Lake Superior than the former are to add an insignificant amount to a school fund whose benefits they would never feel. But this is not all. It should be remembered that the con struction of railways through this terri tory will greatly enhance the value of the lands already set apart for the school fund, and bring them more promptly into. the market. This con sideration ought, it seems to me, to be controlling with the legislature. It is to be hoped that above all the mist and noise of rival interests, our lawmakers will rise to a just appreciation of the intrinsic merits of this question, and decide it in accordance with the prin ciples of equity aud justice, without re gard to sectional or other prejudices. **** Thrown on a Wire Pence. Special to the Globe. C.r :-'-'? Pipestone, Minn.. March 2.— T. F. Robinson, president of ihe Merchant's Co-operative Chemical and Spice com company, of this city, met with a severe accident last evening. He was driving home from Woodstock when the team became frightened and ran away. They turned from the road and ran into a barb wire fence, throwing Mr. Robin son several feet in the air. The fall - knocked him senseless and- he lay nearly an hour before he was picked up by a farmer and brought to town. He is terribly cut about the head, al though it is thought not seriously, un less he is hurt internally. The team was nearly cut to pieces on the barb wire and may have to be killed. —•»-—--—--■■. -: Mary Washington's Monnmant.

A CURIOUS CORNER. The Terrapin Market Cornered for Inauguration Day Pur- ; poses. - ■ "•. !-L-v.l^;^'i New York, March 2.— A Philadel phia special says: The terrapin mar ket in Philadelphia, New York and. Baltimore has been "cornered." When," early yesterday morning, the stewards; of the various city clubs went to mar ket to procure the • great American 7 delicacy, they were informed that there! was not a genuine terrapin in the city. This was an unheard-of calamity. Telegrams were sent to New York and Baltimore. The answer in both cases' was the same: "Market cornered for inauguration ball about three weeks ago." George C. Blodt, who will pro vide the great supper at the in auguration, instructed his agent. Frederick A. Milden, of this city, some time ago to pur-, chase all the terrapin obtainable in the market. Mr. Milden did so. The prices paid were high, but the demand had to be supplied. As a result, 1,700 large terrapin and 3,400 small specimens were contracted for and immediately shipped to Philadelphia. As each ter rapin arrived En Philadelphia, it was properly taken care of. In the cellar of the Bullet building a cold vault was prepared, with running water, sea weeds and some oatmeal for the entertain ment of the strangers. The terrapin lived there until Thursday evening, when they were taken out, boiled and picked. The amount made just 250 gal lons, which at the retail price, $5 a quart, makes $5,000 worth of edible lux ury for Gen. Harrison's admirers. Last night a special train carried the terra pin to Washington. Twenty-one cooks in white aprons acted as guards. m A MANIAC'S WORK. A Seminole Indian Goes Wild and Murders Eight of His Fellows. Jacksonville. Fla., March 2.— News has just reached here from Okeechobee of a bloody affray among the Seminole Indians in the Everglades. "Jim," a young buck, went crazy, and with a Wincnester rifle started out on the war path through the camp and settlement. He first sent a bullet through the brain" of Wauci Micco, chief of the Miamis, killing ' him iustantly. He next killed Old Tiger. Young Tiger, a son of Old Tiger, and probably the finest ' Seminole living, physically, stepped out of his wigwam just in time' to see his father drop to the ground a corpse, and with a blood-curdling war whoop, he sprang on the maniac and a hand-to-hand fight for the possession of the rifle followed. Tiger was the su perior in strength, but was at the wrong end of the gun, and before he could wrest it from his antagonist he was shot dead. The maniac then killed two pappooses of his sister, and attacked bucks, squaws and children indis criminately. He was finally cornered and shot dead. In less than half an hour eight Indians were killed. .* Mine Accidents. _■_ Special to the Globe. . i.
