Take heed! Beware! Expect no mercy from us; you have no mercy on others. By order of committee, The Avkngkb.” We cannot understand the meaning of this warning.

Toller, of Owatonna, one of the board of directors of tile Duluth X Southern railway, was at the Merchants last evening. “We are sanguine over the outlook,” said he, “and our affairs are rapidly assuming definite shape. The road when completed from Duluth to .Sioux City will run through a prosperous country. It will not parallel any other line,*and its natural resources are unsnrpitssed. We are erecting Hie bridge over the river at Ziimbrota. and will complete the line from Red Wing to that point by April 1st, and by the 1st of October will have completed 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 Northwestern Fuel company is enabled to control the market in our section of the country, and to put up the price accordingly. * 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 simps, and the number 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 ('itv we will, of course, be forced to establish divisions along the Une. No engine should be run more than IOO miles without being relieved, and the exigencies of the occasion absolutely require the establishment of divisions, and the possibilities are that the shops will l>e built at one of these points.” Mr. Tuber was uncommunicative as to the precise location of these divisions, but from another source it was unofficially learned that they would ba established at Algona, Owatonna and the Sioux crossing. By means of this distribution of operating line of the425 miles between terminals would be equitably distributed. Prohibition Clubs. Editor Standard : The convention of the prohibition clubs of Minnesota was bela last Tuesday in Labor Temple, Minneapolis, and was attended by over one hundred delegates from various parts of the state. The usual enthusiasm and uncompromising determination to secure prohibition for state aud nation was manifested, and the usual conflicts between tin* advocates and opponents of woman suff rage was indulged in which resulted in a* resolution to endorse tin* national platform. The organization of a state league was perfected, 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 November, when the state campaign of ’90 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. Clarence Wedge. Notice of Corporation Meeting. A meeting of the corporation of the Albert Lea Lutheran High School will be held at the Principal's office, Wednesday. March 27th, 1889, at 8 o’clock p. nu, for consultation regarding the erection of school buildings, and for tho transaction of such other business as may come before the meeting. T. A.
