MINN., JULY ll, 1880. NO. 28. An The case I iii port nut af Wm. A Derision. Un Hay against *’    I City ! the Chicago, Milwaukee a st, Pan railway company, which was tried In th** district court of this county last Fall, attracted a good deal of atten tion. The plaintiff was represented by Hon. A. J. Edgerton of Dakota, (leo IL Edgerton, Lovely A; Morgan, and several other attomeys, and Mr. IL ll Field, the company's aolicitor, and \V. E. Todd contended for* the defendant The plaintiff obtained a verdict for WJBOO. The Minneapolis Tribune says thf cane is of very great Importance to per sons who carelessly hoard trains, or who cross railway tracks without ob serving trains moving in opposite di reetions, and also in leaving trains at intermediate stations. In this case the plaintiff was a passenger from Mitchell, to sioux Falls, Dak., and at a station six miles out from Mitchell his train stopped and was ordered to wait for a train to pass. The conductor said he would stop “2D or fin minutes,”and the plaintiff got off and went into the town for more than lo minutes, (in returning he heard the conductor say “all aboard/’ whereupon he ran and jumped across tracks and was struck by the incoming train and sustained injuries. The supreme court has reversed the order. The evidence showed that the plaintiff raw so near the front of the moving engine that persons who saw him thought he was “trying to kill himself.” The opinion is based on the fact that the plaintiff had left the train and there was no excuse for the hurried manner in w hich he jumped Tor. his train because the conductor had warted “all aboard” as a signal to the passengers who had left the train. The syllabus is interesting and is as follows:* 'v,£!**IMWwnKere»'tora a railway train :fh<l bays bis far** u» a particular place, hi* contract -STJ not    Hic company lo furnIsl* him JnS 1Y:2!,S    ‘•KT**    and Ingres at an infertile- ".V1 ifJ?e leM*ea toe train at suc h a 'totIon h** for the time being surrender hi* Interesting Items from the sessor’s Returns. Assessor Lillnip’s completed returns furnish many facts which may be profitably studied. The basis of assessment, as is the custom throughout the •tate, although contrary to the law, is to list personal property at about one-third its real value, and, of course there is a great deal that is not reported and so not listed at all. I’he total valuation is $22SAftS other items are as follows: Personal property..,,. ,  .......... < attic. ..........  “\L\ Horse* ..................... ...

Neither does the call Of »aB afeard,” by the conductor of the sidetracked train, give an assurance to tliose who have left their trait*, that they HJS "i2ln traok ,n without look-big for approaching trains. Passengers who have thus left their train when they attempt to cross the track, under these circumstances, are bound to exercise nt{i_ amable care and caution to avoid in lur* iron, passing trams and must ase their sen#*s foTthat purtiose.

I fyou are going west bear In mind the following facts: 'j he Northern • Lacitic railroad owns aud operates 987 miles, or 57* per cent of the entire railroad mileage of Montana: spans the territory withes main line from east to west; is the short line to Helena; the only Fuliman and dining car line to Butte, and is the only line that reaches Miles City, Billings. Bozeman, Missoula the \ellowstone National Park, and in fact nine-tenths of the cities and points of interest in the territory. The Northern Pacific owns and operates G2I miles or Gti per cent of the railroad mileage of Washington, its main line extending from the Idaho line via Spokane Falls, Cheney, Sprague Yakimaand Ellensburg, through the center of the territory to Tacoma and Seattle, and from t acoma to Portland. No other trans-continental through rail line reaches any portion of Wash ington Territory'. Ten days stop over privileges are given on Northern Pacific second class tickets at Spokane Falls and all points west. thus affording intending settlers an excellent opm triunity to see the entire territory' without incurring the expense of paying local fares from point to point. o. r'!ortb£rn Pacific is the shortest route from St. Paul to Tacoma by 207 miles; to Seattle bv 177 miles, and to Portland bv 324 miles—time correspondingly shorter, varying irom on** to two days, according to destination. No other line from St. Paul or Minneapolis runs through passenger cars of any kind into Idaho, Oregon or Washington.    h In addition to being the only rail line to Npok-a,,e *alls, Tacoma and Seattle, the Northern I acme reaches all the principal points in Northern Minnesota and Dakota, Montana, Idaho Oregon and Washington. Bear in mind that the Northern Pacific and Shasta line Is the famous scenic route to all points in California.

Our correspondent is mistaken in the idea that inmates of theSoldiers’Home are compelled to surrender their pensions to the trustees. They may refuse to do so, but in such case they must leave the Home. Very few have left there on this account, and several who did so, spent in debauchery in a few days all they had. We believe the action of the trustees in withholding all pension money under the circumstances except S4 a month is generally approved by old soldiers. Harvest Excursions.
