IMPETUS TO THE PROJECT AT A MEETING BEGUN IN MINNE APOLIS AND CONCLUDED IN " ' ST. PAUL. ORGANIZATION IS FORMED, Which, It Is Hoped, Will Secure the Building of a New Rail- - :; road. The first impetus was yesterday given the project to construct a rail road which shall bring the Black Hills of South Dakota into closer communion with the Twin Cities of Minnesota. In the Minneapolis Com mercial club in the morning and last night at the rooms of the : St. Paul club a representative body of St. Paul and Minneapolis business men and the delegates from South Dakota gathered to effect an organization and take definite steps to bring about the consummation of the plan which has been discussed for some time, namely, the building of a railroad between Aberdeen and Pierre. Re grets, owing to his inability to be present at the meeting, were re ceived from Mayor Smith. President Vanish, of the. club, after a brief speech, Introduced Gov. Sheldon, of South Dakota, who headed the dele gation. Gov. Sheldon reviewed the situa tion at length. He called attention to the fact that South Dakota was the only Northwestern state which had no railroad running from east to west, and reviewed the early de velopment of the railroad system of the state. Speaking of the wonder ful growth of St. Paul and Minne apolis, Gov. Sheldon said ' that it was due to a broadening of their horizon. The cities depended upon a developing country and the coun try upon the prosperity of the cities which furnished the market. Gov. Sheldon further said that St. Paul and Minneapolis had cut off Nortn Dakota from Chicago, but by no means controlled South Dakota, while they were absolutely shut out of the hills. A direct line would bring St. Paul nearer to the Black Hills than Omaha. While enlarging upon the wonderful resources of the hills, Gov. Sheldon expressed - the hope that a delegation of conserva tive men be sent out to investigate for themselves the wealth of the country. He also read a letter re garding the wonderful deposits of bituminous coal in the Hills coun try. But gold and coal were not all. One line would take out of the Hills district this year 6,000 carloads of cattle. On live stock St. Paul would have a grea* advantage over Chica go. It would require only twenty four hours to bring cattle here from the remotest South Dakota point, against thirty-six to forty-eight to Chicago. A considerable part of his address Gov. Sheldon devoted to the condition and future of agricultural South Dakota. He believed the only problems confronting the South Da kota farmer had been solved by ar tesian irrigation and improved meth ods of diversification. He closed with a plea for practical, earnest action in co-operation with South Dakota to ward securing the desired railway connection. • President Robert A. Kirk, of the Jobbers' union addressed . the dele gates briefly, stating that the local merchants desired a connection with the Black Hills country, and would enjoy trade, business and social re lations with a state which has made such wonderful progress in late years. He thought he voiced the sentiments of his fellow merchants when he expressed the hope that in some way business relations would be established so that the apparently vast resources, both mineral and agricultural, could be made to bring riches and prosperity to the natives of South Dakota. Mr. Kirk spoke of the time to come when St. Paul men could load their goods on big ves sels at their own doors instead of shipping merchandise by way of the far-away lake ports. He made a plea for a strong reciprocal feeling between the Dakotians and the busi ness men of the Twin Cities. J Attorney General Crawford, s of Pierre, spoke on behalf of a local corporation, which had organized the ! Duluth, Pierre & Black Hills road, i made a preliminary survey from Aberdeen to Pierre, a listance of 128 ; miles, and had raised $250,000. .^vith which the right of way had. been procured. With the exception of ; about twelve miles, the distance had been graded, he said, by a capable engineer, depot grounds arid' ter minal facilities had been secured at Aberdeen, as well as at Falkton, the half-way point between Aberdeen and Pierre. The whole thing, ■he said, the owners were willing to turn over to anybody without considera tion who would build and . operate the road. ? Mayor Chauncey Wood, of Rapid City, was called, and described Rapid City as the gateway to the Hills from the East. It formerly _ traded with St. Paul, but the Omaha railroads cut this off though Minneapolis is slightly nearer. The people of Rapid City to reopen Eastern traffic organized a company a few years ago, and sur veyed and partly graded . a ! line to Pierre. They have terminal grounds at both Rapid and Fort Pierre "Any company that will take hold of the enterprise," said Mr. Wood, "can have what we have there as a free gift." Mr. Wood 'said that this road would cost about $12,000 a mile to build. . It would command the entire grazing country of the state as well as part of Montana. Mr. Wood also referred to the Dakota, Wyoming & Missouri River railroad, which has been sur veyed and partly' built ': west " from Rapid City Into the cattle and coal regions of Wyoming. '--This line would ST. PAUL, MINN.: THURSDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 12. 1895. bring the Wyoming cattle nearer to the" St. Paul market than any other. Daniel R. Noyes was called for, and In substance suggested that possibly some one of the big lines might bo persuaded to undertake the building of the road in question, although in his opinion, the present was a poor time to think of railroad construction. He ex plained that he took a great personal interest In the Black Hills country, and had in former years done considerable business with the citizens up there, al though the relations had in some way been broken off. He was glad, he said, even if the plans could not be made for the building of the road in the near future, to note that the foundation for the construction and the resumption of the business relations between South Dakota and the Black Hills was being substantially laid. He referred to hav ing heard the accounts of the resources of the Black Hills recited in glowing colors and was led to believe by what was stated in the meeting that there hand not been much exaggeration. Charming Seabury, Mayor Pratt, of Minneapolis, and President Calder wood, of of the Minneapolis Commer cial club, spoke briefly, as did also Hon. S. E. Wilson and Fred T. Evans Jr., of Hot Springs, S. D. After an informal luncheon, at which there were stories and impromptu speeches, the members of the executive committee met and elected the follow ing officers: President, P. G.

It was not a large gathering at the Minneapolis Commercial club yester day to further the Bla«k Hills rail way project.butitwas a practical and enthusiastic lot of men who discussed the all-important topic. Headed by Gov. Sheldon, about fifty prominent men from the Black Hills country arrived in the city Tuesday morn- i ing from South Dakota. As many j more interested Twin City residents were present. The meeting was con- j ducted in a business-like and prac tical manner. At 10:30 Mayor Pratt called the meeting to order, and spoke words of welcome and congratulation to the visitors, telling the vast importance to all concerned of the movement which it was to be hoped was to take definite form before the convention adjourned. When his honor had done speaking, A. L. Crocker moved that Mayor Pratt be elected perma nent chairman of the meeting, which was unanimously agreed to, George W. Parker, of the Home Trade as sociation, being elected secretary. Telegrams from South Dakota towns were read, one from Redfield, guaranteeing the right of way through Spink county, and station grounds at Redfield. A letter from Lead was read at the convention, that city being un represented at the meeting. . Mayor Pratt then Invited Gov. Sheldon, of South Dakota, to ad dress the meeting," which his excel lency did at an hour's length, speak ing encouragingly and wisely. The governor was followed in a short speech by Mayor Wood, of Rapid City. . j The roll of South Dakota cities was called for, Aberdeen being first. J. H. Hauser responded for Aberdeen. His town, he said, was only 128 miles from Pierre and in the center of a rich agri cultural country. The town was very prosperous and had held its own dur ing the hard times. One day last month over 400 cars stood In the yards at Aberdeen, but most of the trade went to Chicago. Aberdeen had two direct lines to Chicago, which did not pass within 200 miles of Minneapolis. Aber deen, he said, would furnish right of way and new depots for the proposed line. - J. M. Lawson, of Aberdeen, followed in a ten-minute talk. He said that the proposed line would be almost an air line to the Black Hills. It was then de cided to appoint an executive commit tee to further the project of construc tion, consisting of one from every South Dakota city represented. The com mittee appointed was as follows: Min neapolis council, S. B. Loye; Minneap olis Board of Trade, A. L. Crocker; Minneapolis Commercial club, John F. Calderwood; St. Paul Chamber of Com merce, E. W. Peet; St. Paul Jobbers' association, P. H. Kelly; Custer, D, W. Webster; Hot Springs, Fred T. Evans J/.; Rapid City, John R. Brennan; Faulkton, M. 5.

WASHINGTON, Dec. 11.— The ses sion of the senate today lasted but ' one hour, and was mainly devoted to a discussion of Senator Dubois' prop- osition to amend the rules so as to distribute the appropriation bills among,the various committees of the seriate. Senator Hill, of New York, reintroduced the amendments which he proposed to the rules in the last congress during the deadlock on the repeal of the Sherman silver law for cloture and for counting a quorum. When the session began Mr. Mitch ell (Dem., Wis.) introduced a joint resolution for the purchase of a statue of Victor Hugo for the con gressional library. On motion of Mr. Harris (Dem., Term.) a resolution was passed call ing on the secretary of war for cop ies of all correspondence in regard to all railroads leased and operated by the government from 1861 to 1865,. in order to form a basis for the adjust-.! ment of government claims against', Tennessee. : '". '. V Mr. Dubois (Rep., Idaho) then* called up his amendment to the rules? for the distribution of various ap propriation bills to the committees especially interested in the subject 1 dealt with. In supporting his reso- ; lution, Mr. Dubois maintained that the work of framing the appropria tion bills could be more intelligently done by the several committees hay- : ing especial charge of legislation for each department of the government, and that the great burden put upon the appropriations committee always resulted in crowding the bills at the end of each session. The house long ago had recognized the necessity of distributing the appropriation bills and he thought the senate must fol low suit. Speaking for the younger, members, he insisted that the great j power and responsibility these bills give the appropriations committee should be divided. " " ' ' '" Mr. Sherman (Rep., O.) said he agreed to some extent with the views of Mr. Dubois, and 'also complained of the crowding of the appropriation bills at the end of the session, arid thought that much faulty legislation was passed on appropriation bills. No action was taken on the resolu tion, which wan allowed to - lie on the table. ALLEN ON CUBA. / • Nothing being before the senate, . the clerk called the first order on the cal endar, which proved to be the resolu tion of Mr. Allen (Pop., Neb.) to rec ognize the Cuban revolutionists as belligerents. Mr. Allen said he supposed his reso lution would be referred to the com mittee on foreign , relations, and in formed the senate that the Populist party, which was sneered at as a party of domestic grievances, stood shoulder to shoulder with the Republican and Democratic parties for the main->' tenance of the Monroe doctrine. Mr. Allen commended some of the remarks of Mr. Cullom yesterday and then pro ceeded to condemn the alliance of the money power of the East with that of. England in connection with our dili gence in preventing the aggression of the British on this hemisphere. With this Idea as a text, he referred con temptuously to the report that Theo dore Havemeyer, the retiring Austrian consul general at New York, was to be : made a baron, as an evidence that that : gentlemen was ashamed of the coun- ,' try of his birth. He also referred to the American women "who were marry ing titled European mendicants." .. Mr. Call (Dem., Fla.) gave ' notice that he would tomorrow call up his Armenian resolution. Mr. Hill (Dem., N. V.) Introduced amendments to the senate rules pro viding for cloture and for counting a quorum. * 'r.,- ".'".- .-•?;. ; | After a brief executive session the senate adjourned. POPS WILL WITHDRAW. H Republicans Will Then Be Alio to Organize the Senate. WASHINGTON, Dec. Members of the Republican senate caucus com mittee now express the opinion that a week's time will be necessary to com plete the work of filling the majority representation on the senate commit tees. The Populist senators are hav ing frequent conferences, and It is, un derstood that there : s some opposition to the programme heretofore agreed on for allowing the Republicans to organ ize. Senators Kyle and Allen are more friendly to the present' organization than to the proposed change; but ', if the former's resolution to stand to gether is adhered to they will be out voted, and in that event they will probably withdraw from the chamber after the first vote and thus leave the, Republicans in the majority and in po sition to control . The elections. The Populist senators held a final caucus today and decided to plac? a full ticket in the field for the senate offices, fcr' whom they will vote once and then al low the 'Republicans to proceed with the . organization. Thsy will nominate Senator Kyle for president pro tern., Hon. Thomas Watson, of Georgia, for. secretary of the senate, and Hon. E. Taubeneck, of Illinois, for sergeant at-arms. _ ' ' , 5?-"- ,7 ', /'-.,.-" . . " *fl "''' On Account of Wllsoii>s Order. 7 WASHINGTON, Dec ' 11.— W. W.

Secretary Herbert today granted a hearing to representatives of the firms bidding for the construction of the new battle ships. They stated that their bids as submitted by them fully set out their cases and they had no remarks to make at this time unless called upon to explain further in deti.il any feat ures. Most of the time was consumed by Messrs. Cramp, who. without in any way disparaging the plans for the ships as prepared . -it i he navy -'depart ment, directed attention to what they regarded as the strong, features of their own designs. They explained also that the department-was at liberty to com bine In any fashion desirable the prop ositions submitted by their firm, of course having in view the maintenance of the prices of the various' craft.- At the conclusion of the hearing Secretary Herbert agreed to allow the Cramps three or four days' time in which to ' bring In some further representations In the same line.

" DUNRAVEN A PASSENGER. "WHITE STAR LINER RETURNS TO LIVERPOOL IN A DAM ;^:!r AGED STATE. NO LOSS OF LIFE ENSUED. Cainbrea Founders After Becom- L ing Disengaged ' From the ... Germanic. . LONDON, Dec. 11.— The White Star line steamship Germanic, Capt. Mc- Kiestry, from Liverpool today for Queenstown and New York, collided at the mouth of the River Mersey with the Scotch steamer Cambrae and was obliged to return to port badly damaged. • "■ ':'- Lord Dunraven, Arthur Glennie and John Hare and his theatrical company were on board the Germanic. Previous to his departure Lord Dun raven said he was going to New York so as to Insure that the evidence on both sides of the Defender-Valkyrie controversy would be submitted in an impartial and complete manner. He desired a truthful statement and fair consideration of the evidence. The disaster arose through the Ger manic driving into the fore part of the steamer Cambrae and she remained wedged there till thirty passengers of the Cambrae and twenty-eight of the crew had clambered aboard the Ger manic or had been rescued in boats. One lady had a rib. broken. When the Germanic became disengaged from the Cambrae -the latter foundered. The (j-ermanic then returned to Liverpool, where the passengers were landed and sent to hot: Is. They have the option of proceeding on their journey by the Cunard liner Umbria, which leaves Queenstown Dec. 15, or by the White : Star steamer Teutonic, which leaves Queenstown Dec. 19. BIG HOLE IN HER BOW. The Germanic has a hole nine feet by seven in her bow, above the. water mark. She will . dock in the morning and discharge. The collision occurred in the fog. Both vessels were going dead slow at the time. About an hour after the Germanic started she ha* an extra lookout man, but it was impos sible to avoid the collision. The cries of . the Cambrae's passengers were heart-rending when they supposed that the vessel was sinking. The Germanic's bulkheads were Immediately closed, so that very little water penetrated the. hull. A volunteer crew from the CV-r --manic and -jCam brae started -to draw ' the fires and to save the valuables on board the Cambrae, but \ she . sank . be fore' they reached her. ; This crew, thus left behind lost traces of the Germanic, but fortunately their cries attracted a tug, which rescued them. Lord Dun raven in an interview after he had landed said they felt very little shock from the collision, and that there was no excitement. Everybody did his duty with the utmost coolness. NEW YORK, Dec. 11.— Up to the time of the closing of the offices of the White Star line tonight it was said that no cable had been received by them giv ing details of the collision. It was said by an j official at the White Star line office that, in event of the Germanic being so badly disabled as to necessi tate her laying to, Lord Dunraven, who Is among her passengers, would be transferred to the Cunard steamer Um bria, . as he is anxious to reach this country as soon as possible. BEDEL MAKES A ROAR. Protest Against the Persecution of Socialists. BERLIN, Dec. 11— Herr Bebel, the . Socialist leader in the relchstag, today complained of the enforcement of the laws against Socialists seeing, he claimed, that the latter only did what was permitted .to parties. The speak er then proceeded to Inveigh against the emperor and was twice Interrupted by the president of the reichstag, Baron Yon Buel Berenburg. Herr Bebel de clared that Socialists had never been hostile to the unification of Germany, and that without the previous national development the existence of the So cialists would be impossible. "Was it likely," he continued, "there fore, that they would desire Germany's destruction? The country may yet be glad to be able to reckon upon the as sistance of the Socialists when its ene mies assail it from right and left." LONDON, Dec. 11.— Times' Ber lin correspondent will say tomorrow: Herr Bebel spoke in the reichstag for two hours today. He began by re marking that when the tameness of the speech from the throne was com pared with the emperor's speech on the same day at Breslau, it was easy to ! understand why Chancellor yon Ho- i henlohe had been deputed to read the ! former by proxy. He reminded the house j that many well known social ists, including Herr Miquel in the wild days of his political youth, had fought and suffered for the cause of German unity at a time when Its chief oppon ents were Hohenzollerns and Prussian Junkers. The : attitude of the social ists toward the Sedan celebration was governed by the conviction that never was a more fatal mistake committed than the annexation of the reichsland, which had made Russia the chief ar biter of the destinies of Europe.

LONDON, Dec. 11.— The United States embassy was besieged at an early : hour today by newspaper report ers anxious to obtain the views of Ambassador Bayard on the demand for his Impeachment, which was made yesterday in . the house of representa tives at Washington by Congressman William Barrett, of Massachusetts, on the ground that he had Insulted the country to which he is accredited, the people he represents, in speeches de livered at Boston, England, and Edin burgh, Scotland. All attempts to in duce Mr. Bayard or his staff to dis cuss the matter failed. The St. James Gazette thinks that Mr. Bayard "may resign after such an attack." ,i "If so,'' the Gazette adds, "his loss will be regretted by all who have come in contact with. such a fine sample of a dignified, eloquent American states man. But Mr. Bayard's Indiscretion was so' deliberate that we doubt If he did not contemplate this result After all we, too, should resent it if our min isters made similar statements." - The Westminster Gazette remarks: "Up to the hour of going to press Mr. Bayard has not fled to Hatfield. Whether he seeks refuge in the Tower of London remains to be seen." The Globe ridicules the impeachment Idea and says: "The Republican ma jority is not unreasonably annoyed that Mr. Bayard permitted himself the freedom of speech which is im possible to the diplomatist of the old world." Although Mr. Bayard refuses to be Interviewed, he has. stated that he does not intend to tender his resigna tion. The Evening Standard says: "The pettiness of party warfare in the United States was never more clearly displayed. Mr. Bayard has gained the good will of all classes here. The United States has always been sing ularly fortunate in the selection of its ambassadors to Great Britain, and Mr. Bayard has proved himself worthy of the foremost rank. This petty out burst of spite upon the part of a po litical clique will not tend to increase our feeling of respect for American politicians." OLD LETTER MAKES TROUBLE.

The Orange Member of. the Cana dian Cabinet. OTTAWA, Ont., Dec. 11.— Hon. Clark Wallace, controller of customs in the dominion cabinet, has resigned because he canot approve of the course which the government has adopted in its at titude on the Manitoba school question. Wallace is grand master of the Orange grand lodge of British North America. The resignation will ' undoubtedly have a far-reaching political effect. It Is believed to foreshadow an alliance between Dalton McCarthy, E. F. Clark and Clark Wallace, leaders of the Orange body In Ontario, and the pos sible formation of a third party. he opposition leaders claim that, despite Its several promises, the government will not dare Introduce a remedial bill 1 for the relief of the Catholics: in Mani ! toba in the face of the opposition of the j whole Orange body and that cf thou ! sands of dissatisfied Protestant elec ! tors. On the other hand, if the govern ment fail to bring in remedial legisla tion, Quebec will offer direct opposi tion, and this, combined with the with drawal of Catholic support in Ontario, would. tend to render even more uncer tain the political fortunes of the Con servative government.

"^ Arrangements' or the Republican! . National Committee. Washington; Dec. 11.— The maw details of the Republican national con vention at St. Louis on June 16 were perfected at V meeting today of tha j subcommittee appointed last night ta take charge of arrangements. Mr. ! Kerens and Mr. Thompson, rep« • resenting St.- Louis, were pres« ent and gave assurances thai the plans proposed would .be speedily executed. The committee agreed that the seating arrangements of the St. Louis exposition building needed remodeling. At present the rostrum is at one end of the vast hall, so that people at the other end are too far away to hear what Is going on. It was decided to have the rostrum placed midway and at one side of the hall, with the seats of delegates ar ranged accordingly. A diagram of th* change is to be completed by the St. Louis people by the time of the sub« committee's reassembling. It will show the central arrangements and will designate the seats of each stat« delegation. The alterations of th« building probably will cost $15,000. The question of allotting tickets | brought out much animated discussion. • The exposition building accommodates: 15,000 people, but these limits are ex pected to be severely taxed. It is un« derstood that an understanding was reached that the St Louis local com mittee would not control more than 3,000 tlckets.and that of these 500 should go to veterans of the war and 500 ta distinguished guests. The national committee, It is understood, will con trol the balance of the tickets, as well as retaining a supervisory authority over the 3,000 tickets going to St. Louie. The subcommittee adjourned to meet in St. Louis the latter part of January, the date to be announced hereafter. They will personally Inspect the hall and 'all other features of the conven tion.
