It is with much pride that we are able

that it is equaled or surpassed, in its

about the same number for Connecticut
and so forth; with many histories of

record of the development of Minnesota,
of its counties, and of its separate town

First White Men.
The secretary, Warren Upham, then
gave an address entitled "The First
White Men in Minnesota, Groseilliers and
Radisson, in 1G55, at Prairie Island." It
The earliest white explorers on urSper
Mississippi and in the area of Minnesota
were these two French traders, who are
shown by Radisson's narrative to have
come to Prairie island, on the west side
of the main channel of the Mississippi,
between Red Wing and Hastings, about
the Ist of May, 1655, and to have con
tinued there till near the end of June,
1656. These men were brothers-in-law,
Groseilliers at that time being thirty
four years old, an experienced fur trader,
while Radisson was scarcely more than
a youth, being only twenty years of age.
They lived at Three Rivers, on the St.
Lawrence, between Quebec and Montreal.
During the greater part of their lives
they were closely associated in trading
expeditions to the far West, and in ef
forts to establish the fur trade in the
region of Hudson bay. The narratives of
their travels and discoveries were writ
ten by Radisson in grotesque English to
promote their interests when they trans
ferred their allegiance and service from
the French to the English government,
becoming under the latter the principal
agents in founding the Hudson Bay com
Radisson's manuscripts remained more
than 200 years unknown to historians.
They had come into the possession of
the British museum in London and the
Bodleian library in Oxford, the two
largest libraries of Great Britain, and in
ISSS were published by the Prince So.
ciety of Boston. The edition of this book,
called "The "Voyages of Radisson," was
limited to only 250 copies, two of which
are in Minnesota, one being owned by
the State Historical society, and the
other by the Duluth public library.
Grcseilliers and Radisson started on
their first Western expedition in A"ugust.
1554, and went with a small company of
Indians up the Ottawa river and by
Lake Nipissing and the French river
into the Georgian bay of Lake Huron
Then they turned south and coasted
along the shores of the bay and lake,
coning after this long journey af canoa
iiifi to the Strait of Mackinaw, through
which they passed into the north part
of Lake Michigan and to Green bay. The
hue autumn and winter were spent in
if you ask
Order the food served dry and
with cream to pour over
visiting many tribes in the neighborhood
o- oreen bav, probably including a trip
to the Ojibways of Lake Superior. Very
early in the spring, while the frozen
streams forbade canoeing, these two
frenchmen, with about 150 Indians, went
oa snowshoes across a distance of about
fifty leagues, as Radisson says, to a
river where they spent three weeks In
making boats. The snowshoe journey
took them, as the speaker showe I, across
the present area of Wisconsin to the
Mississippi ai/er, probably in the vicin
ity of Prairie du Chien. When their
brats were built, they went up the river
eight days, to two Indian tribes, prob
ably near the site of the city of Wi
nrra, from whom they obtained sup
plies of corn and meal, which, as tho
narrative sayg, lasted until they came
to "the first landing isle."
Lands of Isle Pelee.
Many evidences give entire assurance
that this "first landing isle" was Isla
Pelee, which afterward was the chief
center of the French fur trade for this
region. It is now known as Prairie isl
and, lying between the main channel of
tho Mississippi and the sloughs of the
lower course of its tributary, the Ver
ir.illicn river. This island is* mostly a
beautiful expanse of fertile prairie, from
which it received both its French and
English names. It is ten miles long and
about two miles wide, being the largest
island in the whole course of the Mis
sissippi. A few years before tfe» time
the Huron Indians had been driven from
their villages and lands southeast of
Georgian bay by the fierce attacks of
tne Iroquois, and in their flight they at
first sought refvge with the Illinois In
dians on the river of that name, but
a year or two before this expedition of
oOr two French traders, these Huron
exiles had come to Prairie island, in
duced probably by its large area of
irairie admirably adapted for raising In
dian corn. These traders hoped to re
turn, with an escort of the Huron In
dians on their long canoe trip back ro
the lower St. Lawrence, within a few
wteks after their arrival at Prairie isl
and. But tho Hurons, having so recently
come there and begun their cultivation
ol corn on new ground, had little to
supply for subsistence of the large com
n*.n> that would go down to Montreal
and Quebec, Thereto: e Groseilliers and
Radisson were obliged, thoug.i very re
liu tantly. to defer their return until the
iKxr year. To make sure of a large crop
of corn, and that it should be stored and
BS.A ed for the long returning tourney,
Gioteilliers remained at Prairie* island
all the yea:-, from early in May, 1655 un
til the expedition for Lower Canada
started^about the end of June, 1656.
Went Prom River to River.
During that summer of 1G55 Radisson
went with Indian hunting parlies and
spent, as he says, "four months without
doing anything but go from river to riv
er." Portaging from one hunting ground
to another, they came "into the great
rirer that divides itself in two," meaning
probably the Illinois river, which is form
ed by the Des Plaines and Kankakee
rivers, each an important canoe route.
In the ensuing winter, messengeis were
sent from Prairie island to many tribes
far and near, to invite them to join in
the fur trade and to go with their pel
tries and canoes to the French settle
ments. The representatives of many
tribes came therefore in the spring ur
this great expedition; but the SaroiM,
still fearing the cruel Irocraols, who.
would probably have ranging parties >m
the Ottawa to waylay them, feared to
start, and pleaded for delay yet another
year. It was a critical time for these
two French traders, as their business
success, and perhaps their lives, depend
ed on returning. The supply of corn was
ample, and their merchandise for further
traile was wholly exhausted.
It was decided that a large company,
'about 500," as Radisson says, "all stout
men," should accompany the traders in
their desired return, carrying in canoes
to Quebec a vast freight of most valu
able furs. The depressed fur trade,
which had languished since the defeat
and exile of the Hurons in 1649-50 was
revived, and all the colonists of Montreal,
Three Rivers and Quebec, welcomed the
traders and their Indian retinue with
In a second Western expedition throe
years later, Groseilliers and Radisson
voyaged along the south shore of L,ake
Superior to Chequamegon bay, and trav
eled into the central and northern part
of Minnesota, during the winter and
spring of 1659-60, being then the first
Europeans to visit the Sioux.

brotherhood of locomotive firemen, has
just completed his report for the last
year, which makes some remarkable

According to the figures, the firemen
are the strongest, in proportion to the
number of men employed, in the United

road organizations. They have a total
membership of 40,520, as against fewer
than 50,000 locomotive firemen in the
.United States and Canada.
This Is a doubling of the membership
since 1894, when the order moved to

Secures Writ of Mandamus.
Judge Kelly yesterday granted a per
emptory writ of mandamus reauaring
Comptroller MeCardy to audit the claim
of the Society for the Prevention .of
Cruelty for the money voted to the soci
ety by the city council April 8, 1901.
The amount appropriated was $840, to
be paid in monthly installments of $70
each, from the general fund. The
comptroller refused to audit the voucn
ers on the ground that there was no
money in the general fund applicable
to the purpose designated, and persisted
in this refusal, in spite of a resolution
of the council directing him to submit
audited resolutions covering the amounts
due the society and to become due.
PRESENT RELIEF IS REFUSED.

eurities to Pay All Claims.
In the case of Carrie C. Eggleston
against W. R. Merriam, and the other
heirs of the late John L. Merriam, Judge
Brill filed an order yesterday denying the
plaintiff any present relief.
The suit involves the payment of an
annuity of $600 to the plaintiff during
her lifetime by the terms of the will of
the late John L. Merriam, w rho was her
brother, and is based upon the fact that
thxs executors of the will sold some of
the securities from which it was intend
ed the annuity should be derived, and
used the proceeds to pay back amounts
due her. The court holds that there is
a sufficient sum to pay the present
claims of the plaintiff and the future
claims for some time to come, and pos
sibly for the term of her life, and denies
her any relief at this time.
