The Globe's Motto: Live News, Latest News, Reliable News— No Fake War News. • The Only Newspaper in the North west That Prints the Full Associated Press News Report. Does France want peace or a piece? War Bulletin— And the cork is in the bottle. The Oregon traveled 13,000 miles, but didn't break a pedal. Santiago de Cuba looks like a good place for a first-class seaport funeral. Will the Pioneer Press resume getting out first editions after the war is over? Sampson and Schley can have their hot biid after they open the cold bot tle. How far is Santiago de Cuba from • , the Spanish fleet's next stopping place? The Pingree potato and the red flag have gone to rest together until more peaceful times. The Ft Paul team should remember that it 's never too late to learn some game it can play.' The r-T.ning up of Admiral Cervera in Santiago de Cuba is something of a "boxing'; match, isn't it, Mr. Corbett? The thermometer seems to itave awakened to the fact that it must reg ister high up in order to vote this sum mer. An Unlearned Lesson of "6i. President McKlnley is not utilizing the wisdom he must have gained be fore he became Maj. McKinley. If he will recall those early days of 1861 when men were answering the call of "Father Abraham" for "300.000 more," he will remember how anxiously every one turned for leaders who had some military experience. There had been carping criticism of West Point and Annapolis in the preceding years of peace, and atrabilious persons affec!:ed to see the germ of a later Praetorian euard in their graduates; but when the war signal came criticism was hushed und the patriotic volunteers felt the wisdom of a policy that had provided men trained in the art of war. The .emand was for men who knew to teach and lead the men who were Will ing but did not know. Among the vol unteer companies that everywhere formed there was anxiety to get men who knew something of military life and work. Veterans of the Mexican war, however little regarded as citi zens, became important then. One such company, we know, felt a greater sense of security when it secured the serv ices of a fifer who had fifed for a troop in Mexico. But the politician then had the pull. We all know how Grant hung about the governor's office in Illinois, doing a clerk's work, while colonels' commis sions were given to men who could not maneuver a company change of front. No estimate can be made of the lives that were thrown away and the treas ure squandered by these incompetents given commands because they had held command in political organizations. There was then the excuse that the supply of West Point men was not equal to the demand for them, but, whatever of substance it had then, it has none now. Every responsible posi tion can now be filled with a man trained to its duties. Field and staff can be composed of men who do not have to learn. The quartermaster and commissary branches of the service, not second in importance to any, es pecially require men, not only who know, but who possess that sense of honor, that strict integrity, that ver acity, that are part of the training in our military and naval schools. With an ample supply of these skill ed men to draw upon it is dishearten ing to see them ignored while senators •and representatives successfully de mand commissions for men skilled only in political craft; while incompetents are put into responsible place because they are sons of fathers who were eminent, and while political fences are being strengthened, and the game of war made, to play second to the game of politics. Lives will again be sac rificed and treasure squandered, proba bly again stolen, as they were in "61-5, and the lessons then so dearly taught are still unlearned. If it be true, as claimed by his apologists, that the pres ident knows what should be done, but, as one of them says, "Is powerless be fore overwhelming congressional pres sure," then it but confirms the judg ment that he is an invertebrate, wholly unfit for the duties laid upon him. It makes even a Cleveland hater sigh for an hour of the stout vertebrae of the ex-president in the presidential chair. Another Connecticut Hero. The ingenuity of the Connecticut Yankee passed into a proverb the morn ing after the world discovered that he had whittled a perfect nutmeg out of soft pine, and, palming it off upon the rest of mankind at the prevailing mar ket rate, had pocketed a handsome profit. The history of commerce was enriched by the incident, just as Amer ican naval annals are now illumined by another exhibition of his ingenuity. The old monitor Wyandctte had long been rusting her life away in Naw Haven harbor. Everybody supposed she was peacefully resting, so quietly did she lie off the Tomlinson bridge, two great chains fore and two others aft, leading off into the water in the di rection of the sand bar. Nobody was prepared to believe that the great iron hulk had actually grown to the bottom until a navy lieutenant appeared on the scene a fortnight ago with orders to heave up her anchors and have her towed to a Boston shipyard. The winches were put in motion, and then began a tug o' war. Not one of the four anchors would budge. They were buried fathoms deep in the mud. The old Wyandotte could not move an mcl? in any directiion. An ordinary, every-day Yankee, in the employ of the Consolidated road, sympathetically volunteered his serv ices, and the tired and mad lieutenant let him have the job. Towing the com pany's piledriver to the sand bar, he started the steam derricks. Did he weigh the anchors? Not he, for he was a stranger to naval tactics. But what he did do was to just yank them out of the mud after four hours' hard work. Then he saluted the officer and modestly went ashore. Like that other American hero, he could proudly ex claim: "I seen my duty and done it." The incident will travel down through the avenues of time. An American monitor, bottled up for all time, has, by a Yankee's Ingenuity, been restored to freedom at a critical moment in our nation's affairs. Hence forth let the piledriver with its steam derricks figure as part of every squad ron's outfit. Let them be manned by Connecticut Yankees, and, as fast as the members of the naval strategy board fall exhausted from their labors, let Connecticut Yankees — preferably of the New Haven variety — be appointed to fill their places. All honor to the land of nutmegs and naval heroes! Taxing the Provident. The principle underlying the Dema cratic amendments to the revenue bill Is sound, the pay-as-you-go principle; as much cannot be said for the meth ods adopted for the application of that principle. There is a resort not only to the vicious method of indirect taxation, making intermediaries collectors from consumers without responsibility for the amount col'.ected or supervision of the methods, tut to inequalities of Indirection that are un-Demo cratic. We have adverted to that phase which deals with corpo rations, the indiscriminate appli cation of which creates hardship and inequality of burden bearing. There are corporations that can pass the bur den on to others, and there are other corporations that cannot. There are commercial corporations competing with individual firms, merchants, manufacturers and others, and the tax on the gioss receipts of the business of those who have incorporated is a bur den from which those similarly engag ed but unincorporated are exempt. Another feature of the tax that seems to be obnoxious to sound principles of taxation is that which levies a tax on THE ST. PAUL GLOBE-— FRIDAY— MAY 27, 1898. the gross income of mutual life insur ance companies, and an additional stamp tax of 10 cents upon every $100 of new insurance taken. The tax on gross receipts is a tax upon the en tire amount received from premiums. As a mutual company Is not a profit making organization; as it gets from lis members only enough to pay losses and < xpens s and accumulate a res rva fund, it follows that the amount of the tax must b_ added to the premiums, and in the last analysis the tax re solves itsplf into one upon each indi vidual insurer. It becomes a capita tion tax upon a class, and one whose provident d'sposition should be encour aged instead of discouraged. We know of no principle of taxation that warrants the laying of a tax upon savings invested so as to provide I against these dependent upon the in- I vestor becoming a public charge. While the objection applies to taxation of the gross income of all insurance companies, it applies with especial force to those conducted upon the mu tual plan. The Commerce of ths "Soo." The magnitude of the tonnage pass ing through the "Soo" canal, into and out of Lake Superior, can bast be com prehended by a careful study of the recently published government report. The navigation season of 1897 compris ed 2-10 days, and during th.lt period The amount of freight passing through this gateway between Lake Superior and tho lower lakes aggregated 18,954,000 tons. A comparison reveals the fact, also, that these figures represent an in crease of about 11 per cent over the previous year. The value of this freight was in round numbers $218,000,000, be ing an increase of $58, 000,000, or about 25 per cent, over that of the freight carried in 1896. Approximately one half of this value was compose;! of the commodities grain and flour. About 5 per cent each represented coal and lum ber respectively, while the remaining 40 per cejnt consisted of iron, iron ore, copper and general merchandise. In 1897 the average charge for freight on this route was .83 of a mill per ton i per mile, while in 1896 the rate was .99 of a mill per ton per mile. The carrying charge for wheat last season averaged 1% cents per bushel per 1,000 miles, and the rate on coal for a like distance was 20 cents per ton. Iron ore was transported to Lake Erie ports from the docks at Duluth at 55 cents per gross ton. The aggregate receipts from freight carried by all vessels passing through the locks of the canal amounted to a sum slightly in excess of $13,000,000; and the average distance over which the cargoes were transport ed was 841 miles. m Although the traffic on the lakes has grown enormously since the completion of the canal, the tendency is constant ly in the direction of enlarged facilities with which to meet the greater expec tations of the future. The largest ves sels on the lakes in 1896 were of 5,000 tons capacity. In 1897 there were eight new boats added to the service through the canal which averaged over 6,000 tons capacity. The present season will witness the introduction of two and possibly three steamers of 7,000 tons. And It Is a notable fact that, with the increased capitalization in the building and operating of these vessels and the enlargement of the volume of the traf fic, rates of transportation are being annually reduced, and at the same time the business of the carriers appears to be conducted at a profit. This exhibit affords a wonderful and an interesting illustration of commercial enterprise, and its value in the development of the Northwest is incalculable. IS THE DON AT HAND? Conflicting Stories of Strange "Ves sels Come From Halifax. NEW YORK, May 26.— Again there comes a story from Halifax that a fleet of warships is in the neighborhood of that harbor, with the additional in formation that the vessels are Spanish or French. The story was promptly followed by another denying that any sort of war ship had been seen, and adding that no order had been issued for the es pecial guarding of the harbor. Investigation at Halifax leaves no doubt that a number of strange men of-war have been seen off the coast of Cape Breton. The report of the sighting of a fleet of strange vessels was sent out from there several days ago, and it was at first discredited here, but subsequent care ful inquiries develop the fact that they were seen, and that they must have been warships. However, no informal tion can be obtained as to their na tionality, their exact number or their purpose. MERRITT ARRIVES. General Who Will Command Readi es San Francisco. SAN FRANCISCO, May 26.— Maj. Gen. Merritt, recently appointed gov ernor general of the Philippines, ar rived in this city tonight. All future movements of the Manila expeditions will be subject to his orders. He will act only under instructions from "Wash ington. Gen. Otis will accompany the second expedition, which is expected to sail within three weeks. The work of equipping the troops will now be ln charge of Col. James W. Pope, chief quartermaster of Gen. Merritt's staff, who also arrived this evening. WOULD PROFIT BY THE "WAR. In the Revised Freight Tariffs the Rate on Cartridges Is Advanced. Wis., May 26.— Transcontinental roads, party to the deliberations of the transcontinental freight bureau, which has just com pleted an annual session here, expect to benefit materially at the expense of Uncle Sam. In nothing did the bureau advance rates so greatly as on cart ridges. The tariffs have not yet been Issued, but it is known that the rates on cart ridge shells have been advanced from $1.00 to $2.25 per hundred, and on load | ed cartridges, shells and wads from $1.00 to $1.50. CHURCH ASSEMBLAGES. WINONA LAKE. Ind., May 26.—To day the general assembly laid aside the McGiffert case, which was of In tense interest to the whole church, in order to celebrate the 250 th anniver | sary of the adoption of the West minster confession of faith and cate chism. A Pleased Clobe Reader. To The St. Faul Globe: For about a week I have been reading your paper, and I am delighted with it. The edi torials are fine and I enjoy them very much. Some of them are "eye-openers" to a great many. Two in Sunday's issue seemed to me especially so — "For What End Reserved'" and "From Laundry to Parlor." Keep right on in those lines and I hop* your readers will encircle the "Globe." — M. Winona, May 24, 189., STORIES FROM OUT OF TOWN ITEMS OF INT£K£ST GLEANED FEOM YESTEBjDAYS VISITORS James A. HnrrlH, of Owatonnn, on the Butter Inl'ereM. Senator A. ti. .Joli ii mo ii Has a Good MesHnge for Melhy People— -Senator Smith Says There Ih a Good Demand for Serviceable Horses. James A. Harris, of Owatonna, was a guest ait the Merchants' yesterday. Mr. Harris is to take charge of Minnesota's prize winning dairy exhibit at the Omaha exposition in June. He will take up his headquarters at the office of the Minnesota Butter & Cheese com pany next week, when the work of get ting together tiie exhibit will begin in earnest. Vice President R. A. Kirk and Secre tary E. L. Danforth spent a good part of the day assisting Mr. Harris in some of the preliminary work. A contract was closed with the Bohn Manufactur ing company for a huge refrigerator, which will preserve the tone and body of the exhibit during the warm days of summer. The refrigerator will be one of the largest ever constructed in the North ■west, and will be completed in about three weeks. « A contract will be made ln a few days with one of the railroad com panies for hauling the Minnesota ex hibit to Omaha. The contract will in clude the entire exhibit made by this state, both of dairy and other indus tries. Mr. Harris said yesterday that the liberal inducements offered by the Minnesota commission bad stimulated a competitive feeling among the cream ery men, and from the present out look there should be 125 entries from this state. The commission pays the freight, and also offers prizes in addi tion to those hung up by the exposi tion managers. The butter would be renewed once a month, Mr. Harris said. The amount netted from the sale of the butter, after it had been on exhibition for thirty days, would revert back to the exhib itor, and more sent on to take its place. Senator A. G. Johnson, of Alexandria, returned home yesterday. While here Mr. Johnson held a conference with President J. J. Hill, of the Great North ern, with reference to side track facili ties at Mcl by', Minn. Owing to the fact that little revenue had been derived from the business at that point, the railroad company -did not maintain an agent there. Several disastrous wrecks have occurred during ' the last two years, and the Great Northern company notified the Melbyites that their track was to be taken up. Mr. Johnson was backed up in his protest by several citizens of Melby, so President Hill compromised the matter by ordering the track removed to a point half a mile distant fYo.m the cut where the wrecks have occurred. This was entirely satisfactory to the visitors and they left town happy. J. W. Taylor, of Grand Rapids, Mich., was a guest at the Commercial club yesterday. Mr. Taylor was for merly identified with the New England Furniture and Carpet company of this city. He said: "Yes, the furniture busi ness all over the United States i 3 booming. Hardly a factory of any con sequence is able to keep up with the orders. The foreign demand for our furniture is increasing yearly, but it is not nearly what it ought to be as com pared with other lines of business. Last year a Grand Rapids firm shipped a large consignment of high grade fur niture to South Africa, This is quite remarkable when the competition of the English factories is considered. Business is fine all over the North west." O. K. Courtlandt, of New York, a re tired banker, .passed through the city yesterday on his way to California. He said: "There is a*marked difference in the effect of the war upon the busi ness interests of the East and those of the West. In the East, although business is good, there is a feeling of uncertainty which leads people to be cautious in buying. Everybody is wait ing for the war to end before making any very extensive outlay or pur chases. Here in the West it is differ ent. I was told in Chicago that busi ness never had been better and that all lines of commerce locally were stim ulated by the war. Col. Alvaren Allen, of the Merchants' hotel, was able to be out yesterday for the first time since his return from West Baden Springs, Ind. The colonel had a lively time of it shaking hands with his friends. He expects to be able to attend the old settlers' meeting Wednesday. A. G. Gallasch, former cashier of the Northern Exchange bank, returned yes terday from St. Louis, where he has been spending a couple of months. Mr. Gallasch says there is great excitement in the South over the war. J. S. Anderson, of Minnesota, was at the Merchants' yesterday. Mr. Ander son is in the general store business and reports the crops growing magnificent ly. A great deal of attention is being paid to wheat this year, he says. Senator J. H. Smith, of Detroit, was in the city yesterday. Mr. Smith says the Detroit people have organized a company of men and are anxious to get in under the president's last call. Considerable trading is being done in horse-flesh around Detroit. The partial restoration of the prices of draft horses has led the farmers to branch out a little in this line. A good price is be ing paid for horses on board the cars at Detroit for shipment to other states. There will, Mr. Smith says, be a gen eral revival of the stock business this season. J. H. Eldridge, a Barnesville merch ant, was among the state people regis tered at the Merchants hotel yester day. He says the farmers are daily flocking to Barnesville in large num bers, having completed their spring work and got their crops well started. The few farmers whose farms are in cumbered are banking upon an excep tionally large crop to pay off their in debtedness. AT THE; HOTELS. ASTORIA— August Schauer, Green Bay; C. Bessett. Madelia; J.

"Mayor" Griffin yesterday rendered Assem blyman Reardon a service which Mayor Doran and his entire police force could not do after their combined efforts of nearly a week. Thieves broke into J. Hauser's tailor shoi), 18 East Eighth street, last Saturday night, and with $100 worth of other property carried off a suit of clothes belonging to Assembly man Reardon. "Mayor" Griffin heard of As semblyman Reardon's loss and yesterday, much to the city father's surprise, the "Red Mayor" delivered the missing clothes to the assemblyman's home. Furthermore all of Mr. Hauser's property was returned. Mayor Doran had ordered his policemen and detectives to hunt up the missing property, but Assemblyman Reardon realized the ab sence of hope which this held out to him for the recovery of his wearing apparel, and re signed himself to the purchase of another summer suit. But he forgot that there was another "mayor," and where the police department failed, "Mayor" Griffin, single-handed, achieved success. "Mayor" Griffin did not hear of the robbery until Wednesday. When he learned that As semblyman Reardon was a victim of the thieves he determined to recover the stolen property. Summoning his detectives, "Door Mat Jimmy," "Mickey, the Mike," and "Skinny, the Kid," the "mayor" instructed them to get out among the gang with hia ultimatum tlliat those clothes had to be "slung back." "Mayor" Griffin's aids didn't have any rogues' gallery to assist them in getting to the right parties, but it was not long before they reported to their chief that the property was coming back with the apologies of those who had appropriated it. An hour later "Mayor" Griffin walked down Seventh street with two large bundles under his arms. Mayor Doran would have doubt less have required Assemblyman Reardon to visit the police station, had his opera c>«3 I been fortunate enough to ''turp up" the goods, but not so "Mayor" Griffin. Straight to As semblyman Reardon's room he went and opening the bundles, told the assemblyman to pick out his suit. Mr. Reardon did bo and then lugged the rest of the. property to Mr. Hauser's tailor shop. "Mayor" Griffin walked up street with the assemblyman and explained that the clothing would have been recovered sooner but for the fact that the audacious persons who had car ried off the clothing, had disposed of one coat. This garment had to be traced, thus entailing some delay. "That's the kind of a mayor to have," said Assemblyman Reardon last evening, in speak ing of "Mayor" Griffin's achievement, "he did what the detectives and police force fa'Pd to do, and can get my vote for re-election any time. CAN NOT FIND BROWN, And the SaloonUt's Creditors Are Anxlons. J. P. Brown, formerly the proprietor of a saloon at 320 East Seventh street. Is said to have leflt the city, leaving unliquidated a considerable indebted ness. Yesterday the Hamm Brewing company attached the stock and fix tures at Brawn's place to satisfy a debt of $830. William Hamm refused to discuss Brown's business relations with the firm further than to state that the in debtedness was not due on a retail license. An effort had been made to locate Brown for several days, Mr. Hamm said, and when lt appeared that the saloonkeeper had left town, an at tachment was levied on his place. It is paid that Brown also left other creditors. BUGLER TOOK A BRIDE. Another Romance of the Thirteenth Leaks Oat. It seems that one romantic wedding of in terest in and out of the Thirteenth regiment of volunteers occurred the day of the night on which the troops left for the coast. I Arthur A. Dem, a bugler in the Thirteenth I regiment, formerly employed by G. D. Tay- I lor, a woo&enware agent en Wacouta strict, has for some time been paying his addresses to Miss Lucia E. Taggart, of 118 Seventh ' street north. Minneapolis. I The morning of May 16 Mr. Dorn obtained • a few hours' leave from camp, and met M:S3 Taggart, with a friend, Miss Glenn, who lives in Southeast Minneapolis. Clerk of Courts Dickey Issued a marriage license, and they hastened to the offlce of Justice of the Peace Beardslee. where they were wedded. Miss Taggart's friends in Minneapolis have, some of them, heard of tho nuptials. I but Mr. Dom's St. Paul intimates have not been enlightened as yet. That night tho groom left with the troips, while his bride remains at her home in M n ncapolls. QUEHL SUED FOR SLANDER. Mrs. Root and David Morgan After the Commissioner. The resolution introduced at the meeting of the county commissioners on April 4 by Paul Quehl, in which he proposed to invest gate tho affairs of Mrs. Susie V. Root and Rev. David Morgan, has resulted in two _ep arate suits for slander, in which Mr. Quehl is tho defendant and Mrs. Root and Rev. Morgan are the plaintiffs. Both state that their reputations have been damaged to the extent of $10,000, and they ask Judgment ln that amount Both aUeca in their complaints that the charges made by the county commissioner are entirely without foundation, and were made with a wanton and malicious disregard for their feel ings, and have caused them to suffer the contempt and reproach of the public. Mnrnanc's Trio Let Go. Officer Pat Murnane found three men wan dering around on Eagle street Wednesday night unable to give a satisfactory account of themselves and locked the trio up on the charge of vagrancy. They gave the names of Jack Galvin, William Perkins and Edward Cormandy. In the police court yesterday the prisoners were discharged. One Forfeited the Bail. John McCarthy, who, with Mrs. Delia Cul len, created considerable excitement in lower town last Sunday by driving recklessly about the streets, failed to appear in the police court for trial yesterday and forfeited $25 I ball. i The charge of drunkenness and disorderly conduct against the woman was continued until Monday. WHOSE IS THE MISTAKE? MINNESOTA SAID TO HAVE SENT "SHOUT" REGIMENTS Strange Charge in View ot the Fact That Nearly 1.000 Diwappuiuted Young Putriots Were Sent Home CnmuMtered Gov. Clough Says Ills Organizations Complied "With the Orders of Secretary Alger. "It would be much easier for Gov. Clough," said a prominent Minnesotan yesterday, "if Minnesota's quota under the second call were 17,000 men rather than 1,700. It Is an honor beyond com parison to think that the North Star slate, which was one of the three in which the draft was not enforced dur ing the war of 1861 to 1865, should have mustered in her troops so promptly in this most recent call that her colonels are commanding brigades in the en campments of the Sunny South." And the gentleman who made this declaration made it after hearing from the lips of Gov. Clough himself the statement that the war department at Washington was accusing Minnesota of sending out regiments short of men. Strange accusation this to make against a state which fed 1,000 men or thereabouts for from one week to two, while they were awaiting examination by army surgeons and officers, only to have them rejected on the ground that the alloted strength of a military com pany under the new army call was eighty-four men. "Minnesota offered, in compliance with a request to her governor from Adjt. Gen. Corbin, presumably acting with full federal authority, regiments of a dozen companies of 100 men each, 106 men, to be exact." When the young men of Minnesota marched from the armories and rail road depots to Camp Ramsey there were 3,600 of them. After all elimina tions by reason of physical disability were made, there were still plenty to fill the companies. MINNESOTA NOT BEHIND. Gov. Clough was quite surprised when shown yesterday the supposed official statement of the war department that Minnesota had fallen behind her quota, and that she must raise her regiments to the regulation number before she would be recognized in the organization of further troops. "There must be some mistake here," said the governor. "Min nesota has offered more men than Uncle Sam would accept. We boarded 1,000 men only to have them sent back to their homes. I have in my files a letter from Gen. Alger, secretary of war stating just What he wanted from the people of Minnesota. I do not thing the statements contained in this newspaper telegram were authorized by him." "Minnesota has men enough who are anxious to defend their country The only trouble is to find places for all of them." "At the present time Minnesota has no equipments for her troops. When we receive official notice of a call, how ever," said Gov. Clough yesterday, "we will be able to turn the men wanted into the field in twenty-four hours with camp equipments complete, every thing, In fact, except guns and uni forms, which only the federal govern ment can buy." SHANDREW AGAIN COLONEL. It was stated yesterday that the first new regiment mustered in when the new call is received will be command ed by Col. J. C. Shandrew, who wu until a short time ago the colonel of the Third regiment of the national guard, now practically comprising the Fourteenth regiment volunteers. P. M. Catlin, it is said, will be his adjutant, and it Is said that C. E. Bond of Minneapolis, will be captain of one" of the companies which will be in it. Mr. Bond served five years in the regu lar army and has seen service. Since his return to private life he has served five years more in Company I, of the Third regiment, N. G. S. M., Minneapo lis, and has taken a marked interest in keeping the company up to the stand ard in markmanship. TWIN CITIES GET BUT TWO. It is also reported that in case Minne sota is limited to 1,700 on the second call, St Paul and Minneapolis will get but one company each. The governor said yesterday that the national guard organizations would not be given any recognition in making up this new regiment. The veterans of the national guard have been busy in St. Paul recruiting companies, but it is declared that it will be given no more consideration than a company entirely without the organization, such for instance as Lieut Washington Rice's Minnesota Buck tails. In Minneapolis a company baa been organized principally of veterans of Companies A and I. These have been mustered under the leadership of Capt. balsman, who visited the governor yes terday with a tender of their services J. Frank Wheaton, the colored lawyer of the same city, also tendered a com pany, composed of colored men, but it looks as though Capt. Bond's company would be the only one from Minneapo lis to be recognized. O. H. Rask, of the same city, also wants a commission as captain. Col. E. H. Milham, of the Uniform Rank, Knights of Pythias, tendered the services of a full regiment. The batteries of the now practically defunct national guard want to ro also. Ex-Senator James S. O'Brien, of Still water, and Frank H. Lemon, deputy warden of the state prison, were visi tors. They wanted a company for the city on the bank of Lake St. Croix. Representative Thomas Torson, of St. James, was trying to do something for that community. M. W. Grimes, of Le Sueur, and E. B. Shanks, of Fairmont, also want com panies formed in their towns. BATTERY A ANXIOUS. Unless a company or two of artillery is included in Minnesota's quota under the second call of President McKinley, the members of Battery A will, at their meeting tonight in the Armory build ing, offer their services as an infan try company. The men are all well drilled, and the disappointment of some of the boys over having to remain at home has been very keen. Of course the boys would much pre fer to go as artillery, but, if none Is allotted to Minnesota, there is no doubt but what they will join the infantry to a man. The company has been on the gui vive since the second call was issued, in hopes that they would be given a chance to go to the front. Under a recent order issued by the war department no artillery is accept ed for the Cuban campaign, unless the guns and carriages can be transported on the backs of mules. Battery A's guns weigh nearly 1,000 pounds. How ever, this makes little difference one way or another, as the men expect to receive new equipment when they go South. First Lieutenant Hy Larson is still commanding officer, no one hav ing been selected to fill the recent va cancy. To bring the company up to a war footing two additional lieutenants will also be selected later on. HOME GUARD TO FORM. It Is not unlikely that the home mem bers of Company E will organize an other company. At a meeting last week, attended by twenty or more, a civil organization was perfected, elect ing First Sergeant P. J. Metzdorf as president and Herman Brandhorst, sec retary. Another meeting will be held Tuesday night, when it will be decided ■ 53 Just what the future procedure of the company will be. WILL HELP IN THE PARADE. The home members of Company B will march in the Memorial day parad*. They will wear white duck trouser. and dress coats. A half dozen or m or« of the company were on hand lasl night, but nothing further was accom plished towards raising an additional company. DRILL AT THE ARMORY. Thirty-five or more attended the drill at the armory last night of a volun teer company being organized by Stu art McMillan. Capt. McMillan expects to have his company ready In time to go in under the call for the additional 75,000 troops. ONLY IRISH IN THIS ONE. C. A. McCabe, a railway mail clerk, is organizing a crack Irish company. Mr. McCabe has already secured quite a large list of those anxious to Join his company. He proposes to make it an exclusive Irish company. Mr. Mc- Cabe thinks he will have little trouble in having his company accepted, as his is the only organization of the kind and has many friends among the folk from the Emerald Isle. John Woulf is to be first lieutenant. Woulfe was for eight years a member of the Illi nois state guard prior to the first of the year, when he came to Minnesota.

GRIGSBY'S TROOPS PASSED THROUGH ST. PAIL YESTERDAY They Look Fit to Give the Spaniards a Lively Fisrht If They Ever Meet in the Field Range-Fed Horse*, Too, Are in Fine Form to Carry Them Into Action Were En Route to Chickamauga. Four troops of Col. Grigsby's com mand of "rough riders" passed through this city yesterday from the West f.n route to Chickamauga. Troops G and H, numbering 170 men, arrived at the Minnesota transfer at . o'clock in the morning in a special train of four coaches, a sleeper and a baggage car. They came in over the Great Northern road. A special freight arrived later carrying 170 head of horses. Troops G and H are composed of vol unteers living at or near Fargo, N. D. The two troops of "rough riders" from Miles City and Billings, Mont., reached here at 5:40 o'clock yesterday afternoon, occupying a special train. They num bered 144 men in all, and were com manded by Capt. J. B. Bond. Other officers were Capt. J. T. Brown, First Lieut. Bailey and First Lieut. John Mc- Kay. Eighty-seven horses belonging to the troopers are at Miles City in charge of ten men. When the number has l>een swelled to the number of men they will be shipped to Chickamauga. The "rough riders" were mostly all young fellows, of magnificent physique, showing the manner in which they have spent their lives. The second de tachment especially was made up of a lot of good-looking young men, «rhoM tanned skin and figure showed them to be men accustomed to roughing it. There were some, however, who had left their positions as clerks in stores and banks to fight for their country's honor, and they could be easily picked from among their more hardy-looking companions. Ca.pt. Bond is an ideal type of a fron tier soldier, and looks as if he stepped out of one of Remington's pictures. The troops received rousing ovations at Fargo, Staples. Mandan and Detroit. At Fargo a band turned out ln their honor, and at Staples the children w«r* at the depot in a body carrying a large flag. The second detachment of "rough riders" came in over the Northern Pa cific, and left for the South via the Bur lington. E. Valentine, assistant general passenger agent of the Burlington, and C. H. Humphrey, of the Chicago & Eastern Illinois, left with these two troops. It was not known at what time the troopers would pass through here, and as a consequence there were but tern people at the depot to welcome them. To-t-i Wan I nun II:. in. J. S.
