Rorrit, Minn., Jnue #, 1S81.
We are not responsible for, nor do by

correspondents.
Why is Gen. Grant manifesting such
marked interest in Conkling's affairs? It
looks ad if there was something in the
rumor of his probable candidacy in 18S4.
That Morris is to hare a competing liue
of railroad is almost an assured fact. The
arrangement of a few preliminaries is all
that is to be done ere the liue is completed
Senator McMillau's course in the Conk
ling war against the administration is being
severely condemned. Mr. McMillau .should
have resigned with Congling & "Me Too"
Piatt.
Grcismcr, the young man whose throat
was cut sometime ago at Farmington, Min
nesota, has left the country. This looks
bad for him and will tend to throw dis
credit on his charges against Miss Kelly.
Mr. J. M. Shaw, a leading attorney of
Minneapolis, and senior member of the
law firm of Shaw, Levi & Cray, has been
tendered the appointment to the supreme
bench to succeed the late Judge Cornell.
President Garfield's course having been
endorsed by the senate of the United Stales
in the almost unanimous confirmation of
Robertson It will make but a trifling dif
ference to the country whether the New
York legislature sustain liiui or not.
Pioneer Press:—"Four senators resigned
during the late session of congress—Blaiue,
"Windom, Ivirkwood, Conkling & Piatt.
It would have been better if others had
followed suit." McMillan won't take that
liint it's too broad for his narrowness.
A heavy hail storm, with electric accom
pauiment, passed over this section yester
day afternoon. As a measure of precau
tion farmers should fully insure their crops
in some rettnble hail insurance company
so as to be protected ugainst loss from
this source.
Advices from Great Britain report the
agricultural prospects as not very cheering.
A long continued drought, accompanied
by drying winds, has arrested the growth
of tlie crops, and from night frost much
damage to wheat have been done. Rain
is needed, and another fortnight's drought
will be ruinous.
The only !rouble with McGilVs candi
dacy for the governorship is that there is a
little too much "machine" in it. Bossism
in Minnesota politics will share the same
fate as in New York, even when hid
under the thin guise of a"McGill boom" of
the Billson order. It is too all-fired thin,
and won't work.
An appalling disaster occurred near Lou
don, Canada, last week, whereby some two
hundred men women and children were
drowned. The accident was caused by
the sinking of an excursion steamer, the
Victoria, and resulted from her being over
loaded. Full particulars of this frightful
tragedy are giveu on the first page.
Daring the past week the weather has
been very favorable for the growing crops,
which are progressing rapidly. The weath
or has been cloudy and cool with a few
light showers, and has had the effect to
produce a rapid and satisfactory growth.
Although the spring's sowing was from
two
to
four weeks later than
last Eeason,
the grain is nearly as far advanced now as
it was tliis time last year.
Capt. Paul Boynton, the famous naviga
tor, started from St. Paul last Monday
morning, and will float down the Missis
sippi river to Cairo, a distance of 1,008
miles, iu his rubber suit, and expects that
the trip will consume sixteen or seventeen
days' time. After finishing the present
trip Boynton intends to extend his 12,000
miles of watery travel by a trip down the
Missouri from Fort Benton to St. Louis.
Late advices from Ireland report the sit
uation as very serious, and that at no per
iod in t'lie history of the land agitation has
the situation been more deplorable than at
present. From one end of the country to
the other the law is openly disregarded,
every form of legal process or legal execu
tion being openly defied. It would seem
that a collision between the people and
the authorities is inevitable, aud that au
insurrectionary outbreak must sooner or
later result. This condition of things is
having a serious effect on business interests
of Ireland, and a financial crisis is pre'
dieted.
Dennis Kearney, the great fand lot agi
tator, recently started to build a $10,000
mansion iu San Francisco, but as there
were loud whisperings among his deluded
followers, the work was hastily suspended.
It certainly looks suspicious to say thelesst.
that a man whose business was a drayman,
who-had been out of business three years,
and who during that period claimed to
have "devoted his efforts unselfishly to the
cause of the working men, looking out
only for his expenses," should have
amassed a snug fortune. Dennis may
have come by his money honestly however,
yet he can never make anybody believe
that he did not use the power placed in his
hands for personal ends.
Much interest has centered in the contest
at Albany, and the result of Tuesday's bat
tle was looked forward to with no little
anxiety. The result of the first ballot was
a surprise, as it showed a stalwart weak
ness that marks the end of the political
career of Conkling. In speaking of the
first ballot the Pioneer Press 6ays, editori
ally:
"Of course so choice was reached, and
the house will meet in joint convention to
day to resume the battle. The first ballot
has a good deal that is suggestive in it.
The Conkling men showed their hand, and
it was a pitiful small one. Conkling had
twenty *ix votes in the house and nine in
the senate. Piatt had twenty seven votes
in the house and eight in the senate. Thir
ty-five votes is all that either of the anti
administration candidates could muster out
of 105 republican members of the legisla
turc. The democrats seem to have voted
solidly for their caucus candidates, Kernan
and Jacobs. In the house there were fifty
three anti Conkling votes upon the Conk
ling ballot, and fifty-nine upon the Piatt
ballot. The, TOlp a Wbpte defies closej tile county and this promising

Among the prominent names of condl
dates for gubernatorial honors is that of
Gen. L. F. Hubbard, of Uc.l Wing, whose
1
Mine is probably familiar to many of our
readers, especially those who were formerly

residents of Goodhue county. Gen. Hub
bard has many friends here, who will
gladly do all in their powtr to forward his
interests, and should he succeed in win
ning the nomini'ticu, there are a large
number both democrats ami republicans
who would give him an earnest support.
Few of the candidates for the position arc
more favorably mentioned than is Gen.
Hubbard, and there are none who possess
more eminent qualifications. His uame
has been spoken of with much respect,
and there are none but acknowledge that
he is thoroughly fitted for the position. It
is probable that southern Minnesota will
insist ou naming the candidate, and while
there are many good and true men in that
section from whom to chose, there are none
among them who would give more entire
satisfaction to the people of this vicinity
than would Geu. llubbard.
The dangers which beset the "machine"
politicians, arc apparent in the mortifying
spectacle of the vice president of the
United States loafing around the legislative
hulls, street corners, and hotel corridors at
Albany, lobbying for the re-election of the
New York "boss." On the other hand
there comes the ex president of the nation,
the ex gcueral^of the armies, he too comes
to nid iu saving the fallen chieftain, and
will prostitute his well earned glory, fame
and honor, that the machine may live to
rule and curse the people who once loved,
respected aud honored him. This humili
ating picture is completed by Conkling
a man of marked talents and wonderful
abilities, a statesman and a gifted debator,
standing before a horde of ward politicians,
cringing and craving for a vindication^)
at their hands, fighting for an endorse
ment that, to be of value, shouid be spon
taneous, unsought, and from the people
Our politics need reform when men that
have held aud now hold the highest posi
tions within the gift of the people, descend
to the low depths of political jobbing, for
no other purpose than that a few promi
nent and unscrupulous men, their associa
tcs, may continue a systematic traffic iu
public appointments. The whole issue rc
solves itself into a question of patronage,
the sole power heretofore controlled by the
"machine," and without which, this foul
element in American politics, is doomed to
a speedy destruction.
COUNTY AND VILLAGE.
There arc few of our nonresident read
ers who have any conception of the rapid
strides made during the past few years iu
the settlement, progress and development
of Stevens couuty, and the village of
Morris. Iu order to give a correct idea of
the substantial growth attained we will
give tables showing the increases in acre
age of taxable land, the area uuder culliva
tion and the amount of taxable property in
the county from 1872 to 1880 inclusive
TAXA1JLE LAND.
1872—Acreage of taxable laud 8,682
1874— 13,312
187(}_ 24,245
1878— 107,899
1880— 145,944
CCIiTlVATED LAND.
1872—Acres of cultivated land
1874—
1876—
1878—
1879—
1880—
The foregoing figures, compiled from
official sources, are ccrtainly remarkable,
and give convincing proof of the wonder
ful and substantial advancement of this
iectiou of the state. Few counties can
show, in so short a space of time, such a
grand record, it is astonishing, aud con
clusively gives proof of many aud innum
erable natural advantages possessed. It
must be evident, after a careful perusal of
the tables given, that we have experienced
and are enjoying au era of unprecedented
prosperity, such as can come from advan
tages of a substantial and permanent order
only. There is much valuable informa
tion that cau be derived from the state
memts as contained in the tables, but it
would be wholly unnecessary to enlarge
upon aud make elaborate deductions, when
the conclusions to be drawn are obvious
to all even at a casual glance. The tables,
short and brief as they may be, contain a
world of reliable information, such as will
convey to auy practical mind a correct and
exact idea of the brilliant and unprece
dented progress made by Stevens county, a
progress due aloue to the inexhaustible
and boundless natural advantages aud re
sources which are possessed to a degree
surprising iu its vastuess. Our village be
ing supported by such a rapidly growing
country, has naturally sprung forward with
equal rapidity, and has kept pace with the
onward march of improvements. It is
perhaps difficult to give by figures an ex
aet idea of the permanent progress made,
but we append carefully prepared estimates
of the improvements made during the year
past, and also figures showing tho increased
valuation of assessible property. The fol
lowing is a summarized statementof actual
improvements:
Residence property $46,700
Business property Jil.OOO
Public buildings ... 3,200
Public improvements. ... 5,000
Private improvements. 14,550
Total $90,450
The assessed valuation of the village in
1878 was $3:j,842.00, in 1879 the increase
was $5G,"}62.00, a gain of nearly 70
per cent. In 1880 the increase over the
year previous was $66,108.00, a gain of
over 47 per cent. The total increase as
per the assessors' records for the two years
being $122,670.00. These figures represent
a steading and increasing prosperity, and
demonstrate th^t the village is going for
ward as rapidly as the advancement and.
development of the county will warrant.
The amount of business transacted in all
branches is very large, and some idea of
its huge proportions may be obtained from
the following statement of the receipts and
shipments of merchandise and produce
duriug the year past, as shown by the rail
road company's books:
Number of ponnds freight received 40,812.320
Number of pounds freight forwarded 81,815,060
Total 89,628,280
As prospects were never more favorable
for a prosperous 3fear, we feel warranted
in the assertion that the progress made in
1981 will not only equal but surpass that
of any previous year in the history of our
village and county. The array of figures
we have given arc such as cannot fail to
fully prove our oft repeated assertion, that
there is no section of our state where the
advancement made has been more sub
stantial, durable and gratifying, than lias
the development and progress of our fer
«ater-
pming village.
