The (2 rent North west Invaded by Michigan Press Quill Drivers. Notes of the trip. Hearty Keeeptlon all Along the Itoute. There's Warden Chase S. Osborn, ho of tho "Soo" Martc; Who edits a newspaper which Is 'way up in (i. Put when he takes an outing he is one of tho boys, Who never "lingers longer" in working up a nol.su. Chorus: Oh! Linger longer Chasey. Oh ! Linger long er Os. Oh! Linger 'till tho twilight mingles in the gauze. Oh I Linger longer Osborn. Oh ! Linger long er "Soo." Oh ! Linger 'till the sunlight has chased aw ay the dew. Sang to the tune of "Linger longer Lucy," nmld great and prolonged applause, at tho opening of Court aboard the Monarch, a short description of which is herein given. HI DAY NKJIIT at eleven o'clock in St. Paul, that threat city of the north-west, twin to Min n ea pol is, which twain hail fehown many fav ors anil treated us rijjht royally, we embarked by rail for Duluth, termed some writer the Zenith City of the by unsalted seas. Arriving there in the early morning we at once repaired to the steamer Monarch lyin; at her dock, were assigned staterooms and took our llrst meal at the placo which was to be our home for tho next four days. Du luth in Minnesota and the Superiors, West, South, Old, New and Hast Super iors just across the bay in Wisconsin are practically one city, although of course local pride on the part of citizens of each will not admit it and if the combination does not contain a hundred thousand population, it is very near it. Brother Newell of Coldwater says: "Duluth is "founded on a rock" in every sense. Especially is tins true as regards the country, for the city is built upon the side of hills that are a mass of solid rock. Up one of the high est peaks an inclined plane runs. The top of this hill is said to be 7(H) feet above the lake, and the railroad run ning up it is .'J,(XK feet long. From this eminence one has a leautiful view of Lake Superior, the harbor and sur rounding country. Duluth has fine business houses, the most magnificent public school build ing in the United States, and enter prising citizens who work for the interest of their locality. In the afternoon we were the guests of the citizens of Duluth and Superior. and were taken on board a steamer for a tour of tho harbor. Duluth and Superior are practically one, though in different states, being separated only by the St. Louis river, using the same harbor; ct there is rivalry between the two places. Superior's growth covers a period of very few years, the citizens claiming it a development of less than seven years. Ho that as it may one not conversant with the mag nitude of the commercial and shipping interests of Superior will bo astonished upon visiting that city. Its mammoth elevators, large llouring mills, tremen dous ore docks and other astonishing features all form substantial facts that amaze one. There is a warmth of local enterprise and enthusiasm on the part of tho cit izens of Superior and Duluth in speak ing of the advantages their cities offer that can but claim the admiration of the tourist, for one recognizes in this an element of push that can but lead to success in the upbuilding of a city, and it is just such energy that has made Duluth and Superior the hustling cities that they are. After a delightful ride on the bay we were escorted to the West Superior hotel, one of the finest hotels we found on our tour. Here wo were feasted, and after a hearty meal adjourned to the parlor, where Mayor Starkweather welcomed our party most cordially. After appropriate responses we again boarded the "Henrietta" and steamed across to Duluth, where wo found the "Monarch" awaiting our arrival before starting on her voyage." Duluth and Sujicrior front St. Louis bay in which it is said all the ships of the world might ride at anchor without crowding. On, in and near this Is built the great Iron and coal docks, liumenso elevators and great llouring mills. Tho largest iron ore dock In the world Is at Duluth used for shipping tho ores of the famous Mesaba range. Superior is said to have tho largest elevator in the world, that of the Great Northern Hail way which holds 2,000,000 bushels of grain, and in the number of its flour ing mills and annual output of Hour is second only in Minneapolis. Hut Du luth has the largest llouring mill In the world, the Imperial, which in one day turned out 8,iii" barrels. Here wo met Dr. Wilson, a former Heldlng physician, who showed ye edi tor many courtesies, giving us a car riage ride on the Isiulovard, a broad drive way of several mile in length overlooking tho city at many points. Tho doctor Is nicely located, owns a fine residence and has a charming wife. Grain, flour and ore are tho princi pal Items, of export here, but the recep tion of coal from Ohio, Pennsylvania and Illinois for transhipment to all parts of tho Northwest forms perhaps tho largest single Industry. I left the party for a few hours and took a run over to South Superior on an electric car for a brief visit with a cousin whom I had not met in many years, Mrs. R A. Nobles, wife of the secretary and treasurer of one of the numerous largo manufacturing estab lishments of that hustling part of Superior and at dinner ate delicious wild strawberry short cake such as mother used to make, Mrs. Nobles hav ing been out that morning and picked a quart or two from the fields. At West Superior we met Prof. W. T. Langley, superintendent of the schools, a graduate of tho M. A. C. in tho same class with Prof. L. H. Hall, and in conversation found there were several other M. A. C. boys holding oilicial positions in the city. Light-thirty p. m. found us all on board tho Monarch and as It began to move away from the dock the associa tion yell was most heartily given. The Monarch is a Canadian boat ply ing between Sarnia and Duluth, touch ing at points on tho north shore of Lako Superior. There were about 2tK) passengers aboard and the four days on the water was a delightful exper ience. The loat stopped at Port Arthur, Sunday noon, giving us an hour to look about tho city in the Queen's dominion and take a breath of Hritlsh air on terra fir ma. As we steamed out into the lako hundreds of sea gulls fol lowed a long distance. Messrs. Hunter and Crosley, tho noted Canadian evan gelists from St. Thomas, were aboard and Sunday evening at the usual church hour divine services were held in the ladies' cabin. Mr. Hunter is a tine speaker and Mr. Crosley an excellent singer. On ship board there is a com mon interest among travelers, a sym pathy and good will which appears to commingle in happy unison and makes friends of all. You meet tho humorous, tho grave and the gay and It is not difficult if monotony appears to Ik; drawing apace, to organize for defence against it. Impromptu programs of speech, song and music were arranged for evening and day. Two court scenes were held which afforded much amusement and were ludricous in the extreme, in which ye editor presided as "Judge." Chase S. Oslorne of the "Soo" News made complaint that his stateroom had been burglariously en tered by one S. C. llowlson of the Hillsdale Standard and a portion of his wardrobe, commonly known as pants, was with malice aforethought, feloniously stolen and carried away by the said culprit. "Hear ye! Hear ye! The high court under the jurisdiction of the Monarch is now in session," roared the judge, as he rapped for order, and when silence reigned, ho sweetly sang the verse heading this article. The state game warden bowed his acknow ledgements to the court. Howlson was brought in handcuffed to H. H. Scherm erhorn of tho Hudson Gazette, acting sheriff and pleaded not guilty, demand ing trial by a jury of ladies. Mrs. Thos. S. Applegate of tho Adrian Times, Mrs. Mooro of St. Claire, Mrs. F. It. Gllson and Mrs. .John Owen of Henton Harbor, Mrs. II. C. Hlackman, of Hillsdale, and Mrs. Strong were summoned and sworn to do their duty In the case. Jimmy Slocum of the Holly Advertiser was prosecuting at torney and F. U. Gilson defended the prisoner. Numerous witnesses were sworn and Mr. Gilson made a very pathetic plea for his client. Prosecutor Slocum made a fatal mistake as the sequel will show in referring to tho wearing apparel alleged to have loen stolen, and also in objecting to the iury, stating that some of them were antiquated and possessed of very little knowledge. Howlson was convicted, the jury thought tho evidence insullic lent but brought In a verdict of guilty on general principles. Sequel: The following day Mrs. Appleyato brought suit agaiivst Slocum for $."A1,(H0, feeling that she had been damaged to that amount by his state ments and despite the fact that Slocum surrounded himself with eighteen children, live of whom were on his lap at one time, and the eloquent and touching plea of Mr. Gllson, his attor ney, bringing tears to the eyes of pris oner, court, jury and spectators, to spare him and savo tho progeny from leing dcjendent, ho was mulcted in the full amount. "We did not reach Sault Ste. Mario until after four o'clock, Monday after noon, but when tho party did reach that city It did not require much time to assure us that Chase Osborn's town would glvo us a welcome that would prove the cajvsheaf of hospitality. Wo were met by tho mayor and reception I committee with a brass band on a tug and accompanied to tho wharf above tho locks with inspiring music. As tho afternoon was fast waning no delay ensued, but tho party wero hurried from boat to carriage and given a drive of an hour, which included a most interesting visit to Fort Hrady, where Col. WycolT commands a regiment of regulars. This fort was established less than two years ago, but contains a series of very substantial and orna mental brick buildings quite unlike the rude barracks of other Government stations. Kverything was found in apple-pie order, and the soldier cooks passed out pieces of delicious corn-cake from the mess-room that wero highly appreciated by tho party. Tho visitors went next to the locks and watched the operation of locking vessels through the gates three and four at a time. The process was not new to some but interesting to all. Then came tho rapids which tho par ty proceeded to "shoot" in canoes, being loaded in the loats, covered with rubber blankets and pushed out into the boiling, angry current for a live minutes ride down the raging decline, the Indian oarsmen meantime uttering their peculiar cries and surrounding the journey with a wild and fascinating glamour of danger which did not exist. L'verybody "shoots the rapids" here and no one was ever lost or hurt in the descent." From H to 11 o'clock tho hospitable home of Hon. II. W. Seymour was thrown open to the guests and an elegant and elaborate reception was held, the fifty members of the editorial party meeting scores of the best people of "the Soo" in evening dress and en joyed lino inusie by cultured singers and an orchestra, artistic refreshments, dancing in an improvised "annex, "etc. The limit hour was overstayed and it was nearly midnight when we got aboard tho boat again." From here we sailed to Sarnia, Port Huron, De troit and then home. L H.
