and Portland.
"Business on the coast is very good," said
Mr. Somers to a reporter for The Globe.
••There is a feeling of confldeno9 in the future
there that is very encouraging. The fruit
fair was a success in every way, and It was
a revellation to many people.
"Seattle sec-nis to be the most prosperous
of the coast cities though Portland and Ta
conia are also feeling the effects cf the new
business awakening. There is same dissatis
faction among tho ccast Jobbers as to rates,
but that is to be expected. We cannot please
everybody though we try to please as many
as possible. The railroad business is begin

little about the intention of the Union Pacific
to build a line to Tacoma and Seattle, but I
did not receive such information from any
authoritive source and do not place implicit
confidence in it."

Chairman Caldwell, of the association, has
Just issued a report of a recent investigation
made In Chicago by an agent of the asso

to buy a ticket to St. Paul ait the rate of
$9.50, with a large rebate, and that one road
seemed to be tho most willing to honor
scalpers* tickets. The report contained
specific instances with names of the brokers
and the railroad, and sometimes the number
of the ticket bargained for, so that the evi
dence ls complete. It is not known whether
tlie association will take any action in the
premises. The offending railrcad Is a mem
ber cf the association, and is bound by Its
obligations to maintain the same rates that
all other roads in the association do, and for
this reason the association may decide to
discipline the road in some may, though
action would be taken in such a way as not
to oenfiict with tha interstate commerce law.

try Ceded to the United StuteN.
A good-sized audience gathered In
the house of representatives at the
capitol last evening to listen to an
address by N. P. Langford upon the
"Louisiana Purchase,"
A meeting of the executive council
of the Historical society took place
earlier in the evening. Matters of a
routine nature were disposed of. W.
J. Munro, of Morris, was elected to
membership ln the society.
The semi-centennial anniversary of
the society will be celebrated wjjth ap
propriate exercises next November.
The committee having the programme
ln charge reported progress. The fif
tieth anniversary of the state, as a
territory, will be doubtless observed at
the same time, although, the dates of
both anniversaries are not coincident.
Mr. Langford reviewed the history
of the Louisiana purchase as follows:
On tho Ist of October, 1800. a treaty be
tween France and Spain was concluded at St
Ildephonso, of which the third article is iii
tho following words:
"His Catholic majesty promises and en
gages to retrocede to the French republic, sl.v
months after the full and entire execution of
the above conditions and stipulations, rela
tive to his royal highness the Duke of Parma
the colony or province of Louisiana with the
same extent that It now has in the hands
of Spain, and that It had when France pos
sessed it, and such as it ought to be alter
the treaties subsequently entered Into be
tween Spain and the other states."
France being at war with England when
this treaty was concluded. It was carefully
concealed, lest England, then mistress of the
seas, should take tha country from her.
It is not surprising that the public men
of that day should have feared the conse
quences of enlarging our republican domain.
It looked to them like the renewal of the,
troubles which they had just escaped by the
purchase of New Orleans and the mouth of
the Mississippi. It un?'ottled the ideas they
had formed of a constitutional government.
They could not see, as we can ln this day
of railroads and telegraph, how such an im
mense territory was to be subordinated to 7h«
control of a single general government. The
speech of James White la a fair reflex of
the views entertained by the leading public
men of that day. Speaking of the treaty ho
says :
We have already territory enough, and when
I contemplate the evils that may arise
from this intended incorporation of Louisiana
into the Union, I would rather see It given
to France, to Spain, or to any other nation
of the earth, upon the mere conditions that
no citizen of the United States would ever
settle within its limits, than tp see the ter
ritory sold for a hundred millions of dol
lars, and we retain the sovereignty. * * •
And I do say that, under existing circum
stances, even supposing that this extent of
territory was a dcsira-ble acquisition, fifteen
millions of dollars was a most enormous
sum to give."
This "enormous sum" was less than three
cents an acre lor this immense domain, which
had, in IS9O, as shown by the United States
census, a population of over 11,000,000 of
people, and. to say nothing of its yield of
gold, silver, copper, coal and lumber, whose
agricultural products alone ln 1596. amounted
to $345,000,000.
The dread of the disastrous consequences
which Mr. White feared would follow the
crossing of the Mississippi river, for the
purpose of settlement, found expression in
a resolution presented in congress, declar
ing that any American citizen who should
cross the Mississippi river for the purpose
of settlement, should, by that act, forfeit all
claim to the protection of his government.
The questions which are now engrossing
tho attention of the country concerning the
acquisition of new territory are net new ques
tions. Tho history of one hundred years
ago is today repeating itself in every essen
tial feature. The arguments of today are
those of a century ago.
The fears entertained .by our eariy states
men are all forgotten. I have recalled
them, not to illustrate any deficiency in the
foresight or wisdom of tha men cf that day,
but to show how remarkable has been the
progress of improvement, discovery, and in
vention, by which we have been enabled to
incorporate not only the great Louisiana
purchase, but others of still greater extent,
Into the government of the great repuhlio,
without endangering its safety and without
any amendment to the constltutio.
The doleful predictions of a century ago,
like those we are today hearing, were born
of a fear and timidity which are inimical
to great progress; and they represent a men
tal attitude which is not fitted to grappla
with new problems.
Standing in the valley of the Mississippi
and casting our eyes over the Louisiana
purchase to this we point with pride as the
latest and noblest illustration of our re
publican system of government. But beyond
this West, which we so much admire and
eulogize, there has come to us in tho islands
of the Pacific, another West, where the real
work of devolopment is Just commencing; a
land whose rugged features civilization with
all its attendant blessings will soften, and
where man, educated, intellectual man, will
plant upon foundations as firm as our moun
tains, all the institutions of a free, enlight
ened and happy people; a land where all the
advantages and resources of our West of
yesterday will be increased and varied by
educational, industrial and social develop
ment to an extent that has known no parailel,
and that will fill the full measure of Berke
ley's prophecy:
' Westward the course of empire takes its
The first four acts already past.
A fifth shall close the drama with the day.
Time's noblest offspring is the last."
On the Divorce Docket.
Judge Lewis terminated 28 years of mar
ried life yesterday by granting a divorce in
the case of Louise N. Lucas vs. Robert E.
Lucas. The couple were married at Canton,
0., in 1573, and the plaintiff aile/red that her
husband deserted her on April 22, 1895, with
out any apparent reason. She ls 44 years ola
and has resuded in St. Paul for ten years.
The divorce case of Anna B?nton vs. Wil
liam H. Benton was up for hearing yesterday,
but was passed on the statement of the at
torney for the plaintiff that one of the prin
cipal witnesses was sick. According to the
complaint, the couple were married in Min
neapolis Feb. 13, 1896. when the plaintiff was
80 and the defendant 23. Mrs. Benton alleges
that her husband deserted her Dec. 11, 1597,
and she wants permission to resume her
maiden name of Anna Knoll.
