Tile Mi ii n «ii pol is Tr I tin* retirement of .1. I the Minneapolis A Si , having resigned th** I’resident, General s* I and member of the «) tee, to assume his net I sistant to President the Atchison, Topeka j has also resigned the of the “Soo” road whit I live years, and has alc I residence with his la I As Mr. .springer has i j friends in .southern I especially in Albert I j known throughout th move will be of genet! j Tribune says: “I’resident Allen Manvel, of the j Atchison, Topeka & Na lite Fe Railway Company, has been commended for the j foresight and “horse sense” displayed j iii making recent ain**)!fitments of sub* I ordinates, and the Northwest has been j drawn on for some of the best timber used in making Nm ta Ie officials since his acceptance of the management of Unit road. Perhaps in none of his previous ammi ut men ta. however, has he shown tile ability which is confidently exacted by his friends t<* bring the Atchison back into the dividend paying roads, as In* has in the naming of •Ridge J. I>. Springer as his assistant and adviser in the conduct of Atchison affairs. .Ridge Springer is too well known to the Minimal "dis public and the people of the Northwest to need more than a brief mention now. Horn at Gettysburg, Pa* in inn, uncontrollable circumstances took him to Ohio, and later to Iowa. At tin* opening of the late war he enlisted and served live years, quitting the service with tin* title of captain in the regular army. In I NM he was admitted to the practice of law in Iowa. remaining in that stab* 15 years, the last two of which were devoted to Uh* legal affairs of the Nt. Louis road. In 1881 In* came to Minneapolis Where he bas remained ever since, securing in that time a most enviable position in the esteem of the best people of the state and entire Northwest. Some of the most important cases of late years in this section have been won by Mr. springer,among the last being the well known Hill-Flyde coal company co-** which has just l>een decided in favor of .Ridge Springers clients. Iii* masterly hand has been apparent in th* management of the st. Louis crossings case, in which he has maintained the rights of his company against the discouraging odds of unlimited capital and a misguided public sentiment. Having beaten bis w ily adversary at every point tile judge has begun the task of setting the public right regarding the position of the contestants when this call to a new Held of labor creates a vacancy that w ill be difficult to fill, both in the position of general counsel for the >t. J,ouis railway find the hearts of his many warm personal friends. The judge will leave for Chicago about the 1st of November, though his peculiar knowledge of th** affairs of the St. Louis road will render frequent visits to Minneapolis necessary for some time.” lie will return to Minneapolis this week to close lip his business as far as possible, when he will be given a farewell banquet at th** West 11ot• • I by his friends in that city. His successor as*solicitor of tin* M. & St. L. is A. K. Clarke Esq, of F'ort Dodge, one of tile ablest, most successful and popular members of the Iowa bar. I Ie has been intimately associated with Mr. Springer for many years, and for eight years has been the Iowa attorney of the road. We predict that he will at once command the conii-dence of the public and soon win and retain an honorable and leading position in the bar of this stat* Another interesting capture made by the great Saute Fe road is that of J. A. Hanley, formerly the able general passenger agent of the M. A St. L. who has been appointed freight traffic manager of the Saute Fe. and it is reported that S. F. Boyd, the present popular general passenger agent of the M. A St. L., is also to go with Messrs. Springei aud Hanley into the service of the Santa Fe. Parents’ Duty. Parents should be careful that their children do not contract colds during the fall or early winter months. Such colds weakens the lungs and air passages, making the child much more likely to contract other colds during the winter. It is this succession of colds that causes catarrh aud bronchitis, or paves the way for consumption. Should a cold be contracted, loose no time but cure it as quickly as possible. A fifty cent bottle of Chamberlain’s Cough Remedy will cure any cold in a few days and leave the respiratory organs strong and healthy. For sale by Parker A Briggs. The Vail Season.

The appointments thus far mad** in Fillmore county, namely: Rushford, I Lanesboro. Preston, Fountain, Granger ! and Bristol Postmasters, raise the , pertinent inquiry, are tho soldiers of ; Fillmore county being ignored by the ! powers that be? Not a soldier has j I men yet appointed in this county. Is ! this tart significant? If so, who is ! responsible. Recurrence to recent history will now be interesting. There are in th** nine counties of this congressional district some 4,800 Fnion soldiers. In ISH*’, this solid soldier vote elected .Ridge Thomas Wilson over •IohQ A. Lovely, solely on Lovely's copperhead recon!; in other words to rebuke Lovely for his anti-soldier s»*n- I aments. Is there a sane man in this c. .I district who can deny fids patent, lire* J H. ( I <11 futable fact ? Iii Issi these 4,500 Fnion soldiers voted almost solidly for Colonel M. IL Runnel! as against .Ridge Wilson. Why ? Because Colonel Bunnell is a I Lion soldier; was colonel of a Maine regiment, stood on the Chicago platform which declared its undying love and preference for I 'n ion soldiers; and further because Colonel Runnel! said on every stump in this district that he would carry out the Chicago, and the Rochester platforms upon which he stood, and give the old soldiers preference in matters of appointments. Is there a veteran in Fillmore county w ho fails to remember the pledges of th** *88 canvass ? There cannot bs one! Have these pledges and promises in the platforms upon which Harrison and Runnel! were elected, been redeemed? If not. who is responsible? Let the appointments at Rushford, Lanesboro, Preston, Fountain, Granger and Bristol answer. They respond in tones that can not la* misunderstood. *90 is at hand. What now will the 4,50d soldiers do in the coming “off” yetr? To come closer home; what w ill the Fnion soldiers in Fillmore county do in 1890? Bunnell and Wilson will almost surely la* the candidates. Wilson’s candidacy is beyond a peradventure. Is the situation satisfactory ? Is it veterans ? Official Boiler Inspection. .Several excellent men certified to the character and capacity of Brear, the deputy stat** boiler inspector, in last week’s Enterprise, and scowled at the Standard because we criticised him, his business and his uniform. We simply call their attention to the following facts: The .STANDARD is a live paper and prints all the news worth printing; it has been printed in this town and county over 32 years, and during that time, although until within two or three years there has been no official inspection, go far as we can find there has never been a case of boiler explosion in the county, or damage or loss of life resulting from a defective boiler or incompetent engineer, ruder the law, th** cost to the tax-payers of the county for boiler inspection is yearly about $."><JO. The inspection is made once a year, and it is impossible that any boiler should continue as safe during th** year as when inspected; thus it is liable to prove defective at any time. Moreover, certificates are issued to operators of steam thresher engines, who make no pretentions to being ex l*erts, and the thresher engines are more than all others most liable to cause trouble. What earthly good, then, is boiler inspection? Take the nine comities in this congressional district and it will be seen that the boiler inspector has a soft snap. The taxpayers must pay him. IR* can afford to wear a uniform, and it is no credit to the Grand Army that such a leech claims fellowship and masquerades in their colors. The state has too many such qfficers. They are political parasites. They live on the industry of their fellow men without rendering an honest equivalent. Their offices are created to reward men for political services, and not because such offices are needed. The state is assuming to pry into and regulate the affairs of the people too much. Such legislation is based on the theory that everybody needs a guardian. It is nonsense and Sham aud an outrage, and we are surprised that liberty-loving, self-respecting and intelligent men should give such laws and the men who servilely execute them the manual of their endorsement and approval.
