Last Monday morning a poster of ominus portent appeared securely fast- ened to the walls of certain buildings n this village. It read as follows: "A IVVRNCiTi." "We are among jou to st.iy till every licensed rum-hole is cleaned out. If the village council dare grant any license to ivhiskv sellers this year, let the members look out, their scalps shall jay the penalty! We shall visit them and their saloon patrons in the dead hours ol break their bones, tear out their eyes, and reduce to islies the remnants of their vile carcasses! Take iieed! Beware! Expect no mercy from us: you liave no mercy on others. By order of committee, THE AVEsr.ER." AVe cannot understand the meaning of this warning. It may be quite seri- ous, as the society known as the "White Caps" have agents in almost every city and hamlet in the country. It may be well for our citizens to adopt precau- tionary measures to secure their safety. Drs. G. TV. Gibson, aiul C. If.

The Freeborn County Teachers' As- sociation convened at Albert Lea, March 2nd, 1889, and was called to order at a. m., by the newly-elect- ed president, Mr. M. T. Connelly, who tendered his thanks to the association for the honor they had conferred upon him, and expressed his determination to labor for the interests of the associa- tion. The minutes of the last meeting were read and approved. Mr. Grant Hutchinson was appoint- ed critic. Prof, bchmitz illustrated the subject of proportion in a masterly manner. A discussion of the same followed, partic- ipated in by Dr. Abbott, Prof. Levens, M. T. Connelly and a few others. The subject was so well handled by Prof. Schmity. as to leave little or no room for query, and the comments that were made were wholly in indorsement of his views. County Superintendent Hangen was not present. The inoperative law on Compulsory Education was attended to by Mr. Levens. Forty-three teachers were present. Adjourned to p. m. AFTKKXOON SKSSION. Association met pursuant to ad- journment. Mr. .las. Donovan was not present to present his educational selections, which exercise had been postponed from the forenoon session. Sarah C. Burke conducted an exer- cise in Advanced Grammar. The discussions of this subject. which were continuous throughout the exercise, were of the best. Prof. Lev- ens, Prof. Schmitz, Dr. Abbott and a few others entering into them with enthusiasm. The exercise was followed by a dis- cussion in which Mr. Baldwin joined. Under the head of "Miscellaneous Business" was the report of the com- mittee on purchase of library books.

Toher, of Owatonna. one of the board of directors of the Dulnth Southern railway, was at the Merchants last evening. are sanguine over the said he, "and our affairs are rapidly assuming delinite shape. The road when completed from Duluth to Sioux City will run through a pros- perous country. It will not parallel any other and its natural resour- ces are unsurpassed. We are erecting the bridge over the river at Zumbrota, and will complete the line from Red Wing to that point by April 1st, and by the 1st of October will have com- pleted sixty-five miles of the line to Albert Lea, and in the other direction will run the line as far as River Falls. At that point we will have connection with Ashland and Duluth, and by that means have a direct line over which to haul our coal. At present the North- western Fuel company is enabled to control the market in our section of the country, and to put up the price ac- cordingly. It is impossible to say at present where we'll locate our shops, as they spring up proportionately to the development of the road. Of course all towns want the shops, and the num- ber of men who will be employed will tend to develop the town where they will be located. When the line Is eventually built from Duluth to Sioux City we will, of course, be forced to es- tablish divisions along the line. No engine should be run more than 100 miles without being relieved, and the exigencies of the occasion absolutely require the establishment of divisions, and the possibilities are that the shops will be built at one of these points." Mr. Tober was uncommunicative as to the precise location of these divi- sions, but from another source it was unofficially learned that they would be established at Algona, Owatonna and the Sioux crossing. By means of this distribution of operating line of the 485 miles between terminals would be equitably distributed. Enpepsy.

Editor Standard: The convention of the prohibition clubs of Minnesota was held last Tues- day in Labor Temple, Minneapolis, and was attended by over one hundred delegates from various parts of the state. The usual enthusiasm and un- compromising determination to secure prohibition for state and nation was manifested, and the usual conflicts be- tween the advocates and opponents of woman suffrage was indulged in which resulted in a- resolution to en- dorse the national platform. The or- ganization of a state league was per- fected, with Mr.D. Morgan of St. Paul. president, and John S. Hughes, secre- tary. The active work of organizing clubs will not be begun until next No- vember, when the state campaign of 'StO will be begun in earnest. Such a successful meeting taking place so soon after the fatigue of the last campaign, emphasizes the fact that the prohibition party is here to stay, and the fact of its staying insures its growing, and the greatness and righteousness of its principles must with such staying and growing qualities insure its final success.
