ALMOST A BEAR GARDEN.
City Fathers of South St. Paul Have a
High Old Time.
THE CLERK TOASTED DRY.
municipal Affairs in the Young and
Flourishing City Down
There was a special meeting: last night
of the city council of South St. Paul.
Any one desiring a vast amount of in
formation and very little business
should have been there. The meeting
resembled a live stock market when
there is much to sell and few to buy.
The roll was called by Attorney Sehroel
in lieu of City Clerk Bircher, when the
minutes of the previous meeting were
called for, but they could not be found,
and Comptroller Todd clicked the locks
of the safe only to produce a void— the
minutes were not transcribed. Aid.
Gehan suggested that the: city clerk
took ten days or two weeks to get
business on the books, and that he was
very neglectful of his duty.
The council finally decided to open
bids, and awarded the contract to grade
Concord street from the south city
limits to Grand avenue at the rate of 13
cents per cubic yard for earthwork, flB
per 1,000 feet for lumber and nails,
f 1.40 per square yard for stone curbing
and other work in said proportion, to
W. S. Mulligan, who presented
William Dunlap and Charles J.
McCarthy as his bondsmen in $2,500.
Dr. J. U. Bryant pleaded for the vaca
tion of the old road under the trees on
Concord street, which was granted.
The doctor, who is a half-millionaire
property owner in South St. Paul, also
a9ked to have grades established on
Highland and Thompson avenues and
Lock wood, Graham and Congress streets,
which was laid over. The contract to
grade Highland avenue from Central to
Thompson avenue was awarded to
Cogin Bros, for 1,381.75.
SCHOOLS AND ENGINES.
The board of education and commit
tee on schools made a joint committee,
which was directed to select school
house sites at Riverside and Annapolis
street and report to the council. Chief
Engineer Waterous, of the fire de
partment, presented plans for two
new engine houses, and as there
was some probability of their being
built within a month the fire laddies'
committeemen, C. O. Burchim. M. B.

ADULTERY AND FRAUD.
Olmstead Gets Hoisted by His Own
DIVORCED AND MARRIED.
There Hast Be No Monkeying With
the Laws of This
An important point on the question
of divorce was that settled by the su
preme court yesterday in the case of
Julia K. Olmstead, respondent, against
George E. Olmstead, appellant. The
parties formerly lived in Aberdeen,
Dak. Early in 1888 the defendant en
gaged in the saloon business in Minne
apolis against the wishes of his wife,
the plaintiff, who refused to come and
reside with him unless he abandoned it,
which he declined to do, and she has
continued to reside at Aberdeen with
her father, though she made him a
short visit the latter part of April. The
evidence tended to show that the hus
band instituted divorce proceedings;
that attorneys were employed by him
and a complaint prepared under his di
rection, and without her knowledge or
authority, alleging his own adultery,
which he denied in his verified answer,
which was served immediately upon
the filing of the complaint, and within
four days thereafter, viz., May 12, the
decree was obtained. She was not
present at the trial, knew nothing
of it, nor had she any knowl
edge or intimation of' any of
the proceedings, save that he
came to Aberdeen where she
was on May 7, sent for her for a private
interview at a place which turned out
to be the office of an attorney employed
and paid by him, in the course of which
he notified her that he did not intend to
live with her any more, and of his de
sire for a divorce on the ground of his
"adultery, of which she had never heard
and had no knowledge, except from his
statements. He insisted upon her sign
ing a paper in divorce proceedings,
which, under mental duress, she was
finally prevailed to do. She had no fur
ther knowledge of the proceedings until
she heard of the decree on June 25, when
she took proceedings to set aside the
same. Within ten days after the entry
of the judgment the defendant married
another woman. The district court,
however, vacated the decree for fraud
ulent practices in obtaining it, and this
is upheld by the highest court.
' Eleanore Schaffer, appellant, brought
an action against the city of St. Paul,
respondent, to recover damages against
the city for diverting the course of a
stream of water which ran through
plaintiff's lot. The only question liti
gated and considered in the case was
that of damages. Upon this there was
a wide diversity in the testimony, and
the lower court was of the opinion that
the verdict for the amount rendered
was not justified by the evidence, and
granted a new trial. In this the su
preme court find no abuse of discretion,
and, in conformity with the settled rule
of this court applicable in such cases,
the order is affirmed.
In affirming the order of the lower
court in the case of L. Kimball & Co.,
appellant, vs. D. E. Jones, respondent,

owned and used by the debtor is ex
empt under the statute.

How the Great Lake Town
Impressed a New Jersey
What Has Been Done to Im
prove Natural Opportu
Great Accomplishments and
Still Greater Projects in
Many Reasons for the Great
Prosperity of the Zenith
The Newark, N. J., Sunday Call pub
lishes the following article from the pen
of J. A. Beecher, a lawyer of that city:
The first thing a man gets upon reach
ing Duluth is a copy of Proctor Knott's
speech on that then non-existent but
now famous city. I had a copy in my
hands before I had been there thirty
minutes. It was delivered in congress,
perhaps twenty yeais ago, and the citi
zens of the Zenith City say it is the
product of a judicious combination of
Knott's incomparable wit, genius and
Blue Grass whisky. At all events, it is
a piece of oratory that will long occupy
a distinguished place in American
humor. The house of representatives
was kept in roars of laughter for half
an hour, and it is reported to
have been entirely an off-hand
effort. It was called forth in op
position to a bill to give what is
now the St. Paul & Duluth Rail
road company a grant of a million and
a half acres of the public lands on con
dition that they should construct a road
from St. Paul to Duluth, a distance of
100 miles. They obtained the grant,
built the road and in 1870.1 think it was.
connected St. Paul with the head of
Lake Superior as the pioneer railroad
between those points. I have lost the
speech and can not quote from it, as 1
had intended to do, but it is wortli while
for any one to read it who has not done
so. Strange as it may seem, the bur
lesque, and apparently absurd exagger
ations of the eloquent Kentucky orator,
which were intended to kill the bill,
seem to-day like prophetic announce
ments of the great inland metropolis
that twenty years aero was born and is
now moving rapidly forward to a grand
THE VAST COUNTRY TRIBUTARY TO
The city of Duluth takes its name
from Capt. Duluth, who led a party to
the head of Lake Superior in 1680. I
understand that his was the second
company of civilized men to visit that
region of which there is any record. It
was a great fur country not many years
ago. and a part of John Jacob Astor's
millions came from the profitable
traffic in pelts carried on by his com
pany in that part of the then unbroken
wilderness. The location of Duluth is
the great factor of her present and
future. It is situated on the
line of the Northern Pacific
railroad, at the extreme western
end of the chain of great lakes,
500 miles nearer the Pacific and .300
miles further inland than any other lake
port, and is on the great pathway of
commerce between the two oceans. Her
shipping reaches Buffalo in as short a
time as Tt takes from Chicago to that
point. The reason is apparent by a
glance at the map. A most important
fact known to but few Eastern people
is this: An imaginary straight line,
known as "Banning's Line." drawn
from Duluth to Lower California on the
Pacific coast, leaves all points west and
north of that line nearer to Duluth
than to Chicago. Thus, Denver is
125 miles further from Chicago
than from Duluth. Any town in
the vast territory embracing Min
nesota, Dakota, Nebraska, Western
Kansas, Colorado, New Mexico, except
the southeastern part, Arizona, Cali
fornia, Nevada, Utah, Wyoming, Ore
gon, Idaho, Washington. Montana, con
siderable portions of Wisconsin and
Michigan, and all ot Manitoba and the
great British possessions of the North
west, is nearer to Duluth than to Chi
cago. It is estimated that the region of
country naturally tributary to Duluth
will contain at least 5,000,000 of people
by the close of the year 1800. No man
can look over the facts and doubt that
Duluth has a great future.
THE RAPID GROWTH OP THE CITY.
No longer ago than 1880 Duluth had a
population of only 3,500; in 1885 the state
census showed 18,000; in 1887 careful
estimates placed it at 30,000, and it now
numbers at least 40,000 people. 1 pre
dict that more than 100,009 persons will
dwell there within ten years from to
day, and this judgment is based upon
careful observation, inquiry and in
vestigation of her natural situation, re
sources and facilities. The city govern
ment is under the control of intelligent
men, who are conducting it upon the
basis of a grand future. She spent over
a million dollars in public improvements
last year, and this year will increase the
sum half a million, I am told. Her
board of trade comprises nearly 250 men
of energy and enterprise, who believe
that the Zenith City is to become to the
West and Northwest territory what
New York is to the Atlantic seaboard
and adjacent states. About 1,000 dwell
ings were erected last year, and she can
boast of electric lights, gas lamps, horse
cars, sewers, water supply, and, in
short, all the modern appliances of civ
ilization. The new Spalding house is a
splendid 400-room hotel of seven stories,
built by the businessmen of the city, at
a cost of $350,000. The St. Louis hotel
is second now only because of the ele
gance of its new rival. The St. Louis
cost fi50,000, can accommodate 800
guests, and is convenient and well
conducted. The chamber of com
merce; is a large and expensive
building, like many others, on Superior
street, where the actual selling price of
property is $1,000 per front foot, in the
best portions of it. Duluth has nearly
$2,000,000 bank capital, receives more
wheat than any city in the country, and
has many large flouring and lumber
mills. She takes a million tons of coal
a year, ships almost 2,000,000 barrels of
flour, 20,000,000 bu.shels of wheat, and
her elevator capacity is 20.000,000 bush
els. Her taxable valuations are about
115,000,000, and the tax rate 2% per
A WONDERFUL HARBOR AND 2CO MILES
OF DOCK LIKE,
- The city is built on a bluff with a
somewhat rolling country on all sides
of it except the lake in front. There is
room enough to build a city of mag
nificent proportions and population.
But the beautiful view looking out on
Lake Superior, the harbor of Duluth
and those in Superior and West Su
per! or, directly opposite in Wisconsin,
the long ranges of forest that fringe the
lake northerly and on the south, and
the busy life of a lake port city, with
the varied industries of land and water,
form a landscape that will long make
the slopes fronting Lake Superior as
lovely and picturesque sites for
dwellings and hotels as could
cold be desired. A city of 200,
--000 can be built here, and any house
will command this view and
still be within a radius or three or four
miles. The most important element in
the development of the city is its won
derful harbor,. Careful estimates show
that she has a water front that forms
an absolutely safe harbor, of ample
depth for the heaviest vessels, capable
of dockage to the extent of a little less
than 200 miles. The water line in
cludes, of course, not only Duluth
proper, but also Superior and West Su
perior, but Duluth has a capacity of
dockage of 123 miles, Superior City 63
miles, while the total dock line between
Minnesota and Grassy Points, on both
sides of the bay, Is 185 miles. The docks,
warehouses, elevators and all public im
provements are constructed in the most
substantial and approved manner. The
people are expending their money and
laying out the city, having in ■ view its
rapidly extending commerce and indus
tries. The steam transports that ply
between this point and Buffalo carry
out the products of the mines, the farm
and the forest, and return loaded with
coal and merchandise from the East, so
that for every pound of steam and every
foot of canvas they use, both in coming
and going, they produce a revenue for
their owners. The machinery for mov
ing freight of every kind, and particu
larly grain and coal, is of the latest and
most improved design. The discharge •
and receipt of enormous cargoes is the
work of only a few hours, and often
but a few minutes. Here is an illustra
tion of the way in which work of
this character is performed. The
schooner David Dow arrived at Duluth
Friday night, at 7 o'clock; the next
morning she commenced unloading her
cargo of 2.100 tons of coal. At 7 o'clock;
in the afternoon she had unloaded,
cleaned her hold, taken on board 78,000
bushels of wheat and was ready to sail.
Another vessel arrived at 3 o'clock in
the afternoon; two hours later.' she :
cleared with 50,000 bushels of wheat for
Buffalo, having had no cargo to unload
here. The steamer Australian, with a
sailing vessel as consort, arrived at 3:30
.p.m. and cleared at 8 p. m. the same
day, the steamer taking 75,000 bushels
of wheat, and the sailing vessel 52,000,
making an aggregate of 127,000 bushels
as their cargo taken on in Duluth in
four and a half hours.
A GREAT IiAILKOAD CENTER OF THE
' ■ FUTURE.
Dnhith is now the objective point for
the great railroad development of the .
Northwest. 1 cannot go into any detail
in an article like this, and must be con
tent to give a few leading facts. As
already stated, the first railroad to 1 Du
luth was the St. Paul & Duluth, ob
tained in spite of Proctor Knott's oppo
sition and oratory. The company re
ceived the land grant of a million and
a half acres, and the road was com
pleted in 1870. It has already sold half
a million acres, and has a million more
left on its line between Duluth and St.
Paul. These lands are offered to actual
settlers at very low prices. They
consist of agricultural and timber dis
tricts, - ahd afford to enterpris
ing pioneers an opportunity to
get a start in the world.
They understand the importance and
value ot an increasing population in
this country aud have dealt and are
dealing liberally in the direction of in
ducing settlers to occupy their lands.
No doubt this is a benefit" to the com
pany, but it is also of great advantage
to thousands in our large cities who
need opportunities of this kind, as well
as to the foreign immigrants who peo
ple this part of the country. There are
already six railroads entering Duluth,
of which three are trunk lines across the
continent. Ten more are being built
and near completion, and nine addi
tional lines are projected and certain to
be constructed at an early day, making
twenty-three railroad lines now enter
ing, and that soou will enter Duluth
as a terminal point. This system
of railroads, built and to be
built drains a vast territory, and has a
prospective development of agricultural
and mineral wealth unequaled by any
in the country. The iron mines within
a hundred miles of Duluth are produc
ers of the richest ores, especially the
famous Vermillion range. Already they
have led to the establishment of .steel
and iron works that now employ a large,
force of men in Duluth and vicinity, the
products of which are sent to St. Paul,
Minneapolis, Milwaukee and other,
large cities. Add to this her great lum
ber products, mills for the manufacture
of the fleece of Montana flocks, lumuer
mills and other factories for the manu
facture of products of the great terri
tory of which Duluth is the nearest
center, and it is easy to believe with
her people that she is destined for
something large in the way of a city.
A GIGANTIC PROJECT ON FOOT.
There is only one thing more of which
I will speak; that is a project which
men of wealth and determination are.
pushing forward upon the- attention of
the public and of congress, It is noth
ing less than the construct ion of a canal
around the Falls of Niagara, Already
the river and harbor bill of the present
congress contains provisions for the sur
vey and estimate of a "waterway
around the Niagara falls, of capacity
sufficient to float merchant ships and
ships of war of modern build drawing
twenty feet of water, said waterway to
commence in a navigable part of
Niagara river in Niagara county and
to end in the navigable waters con
nected therewith." By means of arti
ficial waterways it is proposed to extend,
as it were, an arm of the At
lantic ocean to the extreme inland
point of Duluth, by Lake Superior.
Vessels loaded at this and other cities
on the great lakes could transport their
cargoes to any seaport of the world
without breaking bulk. The commerce
of the Pacific and Northwest by rail
road would largely find its way by this
water route to the Atlantic coast and the
ports of the world. The population of
Massachusetts in 1880 was 1,790.000 in a
territorial area of 7.890 miles. With
perhaps the best developed railway
system in the United States, for her
area, she had 2,530 miles of railroad.
But Minnesota has ten times the area,
productive power and natural resources
of Massachusetts. With the same
ratio of population and rail
ways she would have seventeen
millions of people and 25,000 miles of
railroads. Again, Dakota has twenty
times the area and productive resources
of Massachusetts. If the two great
states of Minnesota and Dakota were
developed and populated in proportion
to the old Bay state, they together
would have 70.000 miles of railroad and
60,000,000 people. Now run over the
list of states and territories I have men
tioned above, the commerce of which,
by the most direct routes, is tributary
to Lake Superior, and 1 think it will be
be entirely safe for us all to conclude
that Uncle Sam is a large land owner,
and that the prospects of the Northwest
and of Duluth are at least rather prom

feeling quite jubilant over their im
proved prospects. Grain that was con
sidered almost worthless and past re
covery has improved so much in a week
that a person seeing it then and now
would not think it possible that it is ;
the same grain. Many pieces that:
farmers had decided to plow under will
now be cut, and In fact there is very
little that will not be cut. Of course
the straw will be short, but the heads j
are long and give promise of filling:
well. Many places the yield at from j
twelve to fifteen bushels per acre now, i
and with more rain and good "wheat"
weather it is possible that the higher
figure may be reached. Garden veg
etables of all kinds are fairly bounding
ahead, and seem to be trying to make i
up for the time lost during the drought, j
As a proof of the wonderful productive
ness of the soil. F. H. Dickinson relates 1
as a fact that he had green peas for din
ner June 26, from vines that never had
a rain on them, having been planted
after the rain of May 14.

Every Night I Scratched Until the
Skin Was Raw.
Body covered with, scales like spots
of mortar. An awful spectacle.
Doctors useless. Cure liopeless.
Entirely cured by the Cutlcura
Remedies In five weeks.
■ I am going to tell you of the extraordinary
change your Cuticura Remedies performed
on me. About the Ist of April last I noticed
some red pimples like coming out all over
my body, but thought nothing of it until
some time later on, when it began to look
like spots of mortar spotted on, and which
came off in layers, accompanied with itch
ing. I would scratch every night until I was
raw; then the next night the scales, being
formed meanwhile, were scratched off again.
In vain did I consult all the doctors in the
country, but without aid. After giving up
all hopes of recovery, I happened to see an
advertisement in the newspaper about your
Cuticura Remedies, and purchased them
from my druggist, and obtained almost im
mediate relief. 1 began to notice that the
scaly eruptions gradually dropped off and
disappeared one by one, and have been fully
cured. I had the disease thirteen months be
fore I began taking the Cutipuba Remedies, i
and in four or five weeks was entirely cured.
My disease was eczema and psoriasis. I
recommended the Cuticura Remedies to all
in my vicinity, and I know of a great many
who have taken them, and thank me for the
knowledge of them, especially mothers who
have babes with scaly eruptions on their
heads and bodies. I. cannot express in
words the thanks to you for what the Cuti
cura Remedies bine been to me. My body
was covered with scales, and I was an ,
awful spectacle to behold. Now my skin is
as nice and clear as a baby's.
