He closed with: "We will meet and greet with closing ranks In time's declining sun. •Till the bugles of God shall sound 'Recall,' And the battle of life is done." Briefly the speaker introduced Robert G. Evans, who spoke for fifteen min utes upon the life of Lincoln. He shared, he said, the feeling com mon with all, that feeling In the heart of every .true American — patriotism.

Al though elevated to the highest position within the gift of a soverign people, he never lest sight of the depths from ■which he rose. Rev. L. H. Hallock, D. D., was the next speaker introduced by Toastmas ter Leach. Dr. Hallock said he esteem ed it a privilege and an honor to have the attention on so felicitious an oc casion of those who were willing to follow the martyred leader and mingle their blood in the defense of the glori ous Union.

Pierce followed with an address happy in incidents of the president's life and of his great ability and earnestness while serving the peo ple in his oificial capacity.

MINNEAPOLIS, Feb. 14.— There are ln custody at the central station five men who the police believe belong to the "big mitt" fraternity. A "big mitt" man is one who is a card sharper, and whose vocation is to allure innocents Into games where the swindler always has the best of it. The five prisoners have been in town for a week or two, and are said to have come to Mineapolis from Moor head and Fargo, which cities are known us headquarters for crooks of all descriptions. Inspectors Howard and Lawrence gathered in the men on Washington avenue this afternoon. Their hang-out has been In the neigh borhood ot the Milwaukee depot, where it is convenient to lure the proverbial greenhorn Into a game where he soon separates from his money. The police say that the prisoners have already swindled a few strangers, but their op erations have not been extensive. It is believed that their scheme was te catch the woodsmen as they came into the city within the next month or two. Henry Wise. Martin Nelson, Edward Smith., Joseph Hanson, Edward Boe are the names given by the prisoners. They were charged with vagrancy. As "the officers were about to arrest them, one of the crowd started off. Inspector Howard followed him on a street car, and with the other four he was safely locked up . THOI GUT IT A HOTEL Insane Mini's Queer Mix-Vp ut the Central Station. MINNEAPOLIS, Feb. 14.— The cen tral police station has been mistaken many a time by befuddled individuals, but the climax was reached this morn ing. A man apparently intoxicated en tered the station and called for Charley Anderson. He could not give an intel ligible answer except to say that he was in Rochester and in Anderson's hotel. Jailer Needham tried to get some sense out of the fellow's inco herent mumble, but it was impossible. Finally it was decided to prove to him that he was not in Anderson's hotel by locking him up, as he showed himself irresponsible. The stranger did not mind it a bit, but took off his shoe in a vain endeavor to And a match to light a cigarette. He continued to act queer- Iy for a time, but after a sleep appear ed to be in his right mind. He had in the meantime been charg ed with drunkenness, being booked as Edward Bailey. In the police court he entered a plea of not guilty, and his case was continued to this morning. During the day the officers learned that Bailey has been confined in the Rochester insane asylum and that An derson was in charge of one of the branches. Bailey imagined himself back at the hospital when he entered the station. He had been drinking, so he said, and his old malady had re turned temporarily. HE TAKES OYEIUOATS.

He was first arrested for steal ing a coat from a new building on Hen nepin avenue, and today Inspectors Morrisey and Stavlo found Bush's land lord, who claimed that the prisoner had also made away with his top coat. Ac cordingly, Bush was again charged, and this time It was grand larceny. The building from which the first coat was taken, Hennepin avenue near Fifth street, was broken into Saturday night, and carpenter tools and paint were stolen.

Posi tion to Put Ip the Sign, "Clo_ed| Gone to the Hospital." RED WING, Minn., Feb. 14.—(Spe cial.)—About one dozen men were wounded, some perhaps seriously, at Diamond Bluff, Wis., last night. A dance was given at Coulter's hall in Diamond Bluff. It seems that there are two factions in that neighborhood, and each bears undying hatred towards the other. Last night both factions were at the dance. An altercation soon started. Matters became warm and listic encounters were next in order. While these were in progress one man attempted to pull a revolver. He had scarcely raised his weapon when a cordwood stick knocked him prostrate on the floor. This was a signal for a general onslaught. Jackknives were used, revolvers flourished and clubs brandished. To restore order was Im possible. Frightened women jumped frcm the second story of the. building, a distance of twenty-live feet/ some re ceiving injuries. When the riot ended a most horrible scene was presented. Lying uncon scious in pools of blood were nearly a dozen men. One man had one arm lit terally carved to pieces, another had several ugly cuts in his scalp, another had his face struck with clubs until it looked like a mass of jelly. Others escaped with broken limbs and minor cuts and bruises. Eight men are now confined to their beds, but the serious ness of their wounds has not yet been ascertained, although it is thought that none will die. ST. CLOID.

The stockholders of the Minneapolis & St. Louis road yesterday met in Minneapolis and voted to adoDt the resolutions passed by the directors re cently to extend the road to Omaha. The company will issue $25,000,00© of bonds to purchase the Minneapolis, New Ulm & Southwestern railway, the Wisconsin, Minnesota & Pacific from Morton, Minn., to Watertown, S. Tt., and build the extension from New Ulm to -Omaha. The company will also re fund the debt of $10,000,000, and retire first preferred stock of the par value of $2,500,000. This will make the capi tal stock of the company $10,000,000, and the second preferred stock will be come first preferred. The construction of the extension to Omaha will commence in the spring when the ground will be in condition for working.. The road will be pushed to completion by fall, in time for the transportation of grain from the lowa and Nebraska farms to Minneapolis ard Duluth. The Northwestern road does not like the plan of the Minneapolis & St. Louis, as it will not only cut across that road several times between Minneapolis and Omaha, but It will tend to deprive the Northwestern of much business that now goes to Chicago. The lowa and Nebraska farmers will be benefitted by the new road, as it will enable them to get their grain to market quicker and more cheaply than at present, and it will benefit the Twin Cities, as it will bring more grain to them and more merchandise, and will open up a direct market in new territory for the jobbers of both cities. It is understood that the beginning of the new line will be the signal for considerable litigation by other * and rival lines, which want to prevent the Minneapolis & St. Louis occupying the new territory, ENEMY OP RAILROADS. After Using Nearly AH the Trans portation That One Line Had. Railway officials in this state are some what amused by the attacks made upon rail ways in tlie legislature-liy men who Insist that the roads do not pay sufficient taxes and charge too much for passenger service. As a rule these attacks have come from leg islators who are under personal obligation to the roads and who should In all decency re frain from attacking companies to which they are under deep obligations. "One of tho leadors in the crusade against the roads," said a railway man to a reporter for The Globe yesterday, •: "Is one of the most pertsistent grafters we have to' deal with. I will give an Instance of his hoggish ness. Last summer he Informed several rail way officials that he wanted to go to the leg islature. They Sneouraged him to make the run. "It was necessary for him to travel about his district, and he asked for passes. He got them. Then when time came for the convention he calmly asked the road to fur nish him ninety passes for his delegates. It was a steep proposition, but the road gave the passes. He was nominated. As sopn as he came to St. Paul he wanted passes for himse-l?, his wife and several members of his family. He got them. Then he wanted passers for personal friends in his town and district who wanted to come to this city to see him sitting in state at the capitol. He got them. He has since obtained other passes for other old friends" in his town who wanted to visit him here, and the road was about ready to ask him to please pay a fare or two when he serenely bobbed up as a fighter of the railroads, and has since cham pioned every measure intended to injuj* the roads. Now, the passes were not given to him as a bribe, but It doES seem as though In all fairness he should do one of two things— either accept no favors from the roads aud flght them squarely and hard as he can, or recognize what the roads have done for him and say nothing. We should all respect him more." The roads are going to use every argument at their command against the proposed leg islation which is aimed against them. The circular which was recently Issued by the Milwaukee, regarding passenger rates' has been circulated among the members of "both branches cf the legislature, and It is be lieved It may have some effect. Ifcillway men consider the pamphlet one of the best ever published on that subject and think it may convince the legislators that they are going too far In their efforts to tax and re strain roads.

For several years previous to Jan. 1, 1883, he was assistant traffic manager of the Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis & Omaha railway. In January, 1883, he became connected with the Minneapolis & St. Louis railway, and in May, 1883, he was elected vice president and ln 1887 elected president of the road.
