Speaker Returns After Uiness 

and Is Given Warm 


Motion Requiring Two-Thirds 

Vote for Special Order 


<By a Stair Correspondent.) 

St. Paul, Minn., April 8.— (Special to 
The Herald.) — The house had a Quiet 
session after yesterday's storms. 
Speaker Dunn was back In the chair 
for the first time since his illness, and 
hiB appearance was the signal for a 
remarkable burst of cheers and ap- 
plause, to which the speaker responded 
feelingly, saying that the kindness 
shown him by the members of the 
house during lils Illness convinced him 
that their differences were political and 
legislative, not personal. He admltlca 
that he was still weak, and asked the 
house to be as good as it could. 

« • • 
The bone of recept oontention, the 
motion to require a two-thirds vote to 
make a special order, was laid on the 
table on motion of Representative Fow- 
ler, This was the last day on which 
its defeat could be reconsidered, but 
the Fowler motion, while keeping It 
alive averted further conflict today. 
The house has got into rather a nasty 
mood over the propo.sitlon. which is in- 
tended it is said, to head oft consider- 
ation of temperance measures, and it 
may be that it will be dropped in the 
Interests of harmony.

St. Paul, Minn., April 8.— (Special to ; 
The Herald.) — For fear the Democrats 
would gef credit for pasting a bill for 
the popular election of United States 
senators, the Republican members of 
the senate yesterday afternoon delib- 
erately chose to seize for their party 
the credit for murdering the measure. 

The question was a special order for 
yesterday afternoon, with three bills 
to be considered: A hybrid production 
by Senator Murray, Republican, which 
was passed after numerous amend- 
ments had been adopted; a bill propos- 
ing the Oregon plan of direct election 
of senators by Senator Lende, Repub- 
lican, which was indefinitely postponed 
bv the author in the Interests of get- 
ting a proper bill made into law; and 
the house bill by Representative Jo- 
seph R. Keefe of North Redwood, Dem- 
ocrat, which applies to Minnesota the 
Oregron plan with slight changes.

<By ■ Stair Correwpondent.) 

Bt. Paul. Minn.. April 8.— (Special 
to The Herald.)— After all. the indica- 
tions are that a reapportionment bill 
will go through the legislature and 
be signed by the governor, to be ef- 
fective at the end of the present sena- 
torial terms. 

It won't be such a bill as justice de- 
mands and as the Constitution com- 

It won't be so good a bill nor so 
fair a bill as the Congdon bill, which 
the senate rejected by a vote of SI 
to 27. 

But it will provide a better and a 
fairer reapportionment than exists at 
present, and It will avert the calam- 
ity of a special session of the legis- 
lature — besides relieving Governor 
Eberhart of the vexing necessity of 
deciding between two dread evils — to 
call or not to call an extra session. 

After adopting several amendments, 
all likely to gain votes for the bill.

Fargo, N. D.. April 8. — (Special to| 
The Herald.) — Because of articles i 
printed in local and outside papers) 
reflecting on the competency and in- 1 
tegrlty of ex-County Auditor Arthur 
G. Lewis of Cass county, the county 
board has adopted resolutions express- | 
ing faith in him which declare: I 

•'That said articles are absolutely ! 
and ^xitirely without any foundation I 
in truth or in fact whatever. 1 

"That the books and affairs of said | 
office of county auldtor are in excel- 
lent shape and in all respects legal 
and proper. 

"That we denounce said articles 
coming as they do at a time when 
Mr. Lewis, after an honest and faithful 
service of eight years as county audi- 
tor of this county, and after a resi- 
dence here of more than twenty-five 
years, is leaving this state with his 
family to reside elsewhere, as a scur- 
rilous, unwarranted and untruthful 
attack upon his character and reputa- 
tion, and as wholly false and untrue." 



Devils Lake. N. D., April 8.— (Special 
to The Herald.) — Rev. Father Gall of 
Rlchardton, who was ordained but a 
ff-w days ago as a priest of the Catho- 
lic church, saying his first mass at 
Kenmare has been assigned by Bishop 
James J. O'Reilly as assistant pastor 
of St. Joseph's church In this city. The 
congregation of the local parish has 
grown to such dimensions In the past 
few years that one priest Is no longer 
able to care for its spiritual needs. 



Many Families Lose Homes 

and Everything Contsdned 


New Haven, Conn., April 8.— Five 
buildings which in area covered a 
block on the lower side of the city and 
adjacent to the manufacturing district 
were fire swept early today. The build- 
ings destroyed In Franklin and Chest- 
nut streets were a flve-story brick, 
owned and occupied by the Lewis 
Hawthorne company, sash and blind 
makers; a four-story brick used by the 
John T. Doyle company, dealers In 
grocers' supplies and makers of pre- 
served goods, and three w^ooden houses, 
each two and a half stories in height, 
[ occupied by many Italian families. The 
Hawthorne company's plant was in 
I part occupied as a carriage factory by 
I the Kilam Carriage company. The 

total loss is 1200,000. 
I Soon after the fire broke out an ex- 
plosion shook the neighborhood, due, 
it Is thought, to ignition of a quantity 
of varnishes and paints. 

The police had to drive scores of 
families from tenements in the neigh- 
borhood and only the early fall of the 
factory building walls relieved the 
danger. Those families whose houses 
were burned lost all their effects.

Soon After Men Start 


But Twenty Miners Out of

Scranton. Pa., April 8.— Up to 9:46 
o'clock this morning seventy bodies 
had been taken out of the ill-fated 
Pencoast mine at Throop, where fire 
yesterday entombed many men. The 
indications are that many others are 
yet to be found and the giim tragedy 
of the colliery will b© far more awful 
than was anticipated. 

The Are which started in one of the 
hoisting engine rooms in the "China" 
vein, 760 feet beneath tlie surface, 
the lowest working in th<i mine, did 
not do as much damage tc the work- 
ings as had been believed. The fire 
did not reaoh the entomb* d men and 
the condition of their bodies shows 
that death was due to suffocation" 
from smoke or aspbyxiaticn from the 
accumulated gas. None of the bodies 
which were found in a l;eap in the 
blind gangway was in tho least mu- 
tilated. . . ^ 

Forty-four of the dead have been 
Identified. Many of the v ctims were 
foreigners and known only by a num- 
ber or nickname. Their icentlflcatlon, 
therefore, was difficult. Heading the 
list of the victims is Josejh B. M'ans 
of "West Scranton, who was foreman 
of the United States rescus car, which

tion at Wilkesbarre. He v( as 36 years 
old Dr. J. A. Holmes, dirictor of the 
United States bureau of mining who 
arrived during the night, accompanied 
by D. W. Roberts, of the Instruction

tribute to the heroism of Evans, who 
was leading a rescue gang Into the

Suit Brought By the Stock- 
holders of Three 

St. Paul, Minn., April 8.— (Special to 
The Herald.)— Judge Walter H. San- 
born, senior United States circuit 
Judge, Eighth Judicial district, in an 
exhaustive opinion handed down to- 
day, decided the Minnesota rate cases 
against the members of the Minnesota 
state railway commission on the 
grounds that the necessary effect of 
the reductions ordered was substan- 
tially to burden and directly to regu- 
late Interstate commerce, to create un- 
just discriminations between localltlea 
In Minnesota and those in adjoining 
states in violation of the commercial 
clause of the constitution and to take 
the properties of the railroad cona- 
panles without Just compensation in 
violation of the fourteenth amend- 
ment of the Constitution. 

IThe suits were brought by stock- 
holders of the Northern Pacific rail- 
way company, the Great Northern 
Railway company, the Minneapolis & 
Bt. Louis Rallroaid company against 
those companies, the attorney general 
and the members of the railway and 
warehouse commission of Minnesota, to 
enjoin the reduction of the passenger 
rates in Minnesota from 3 cents to 
2 cents per mile, the merchandise 
rates 20 per cent to 25 per cent and 
the commodity rates 7:37 per cent. 

The railroad companies had put all 
these reductions, except that on com- 
modity rates. Into effect and the case* 
were commenced and tried after the 
effect of these reductions had become 
provable. Full proof of the facts ot 
the cases was made through many 
months before Charles E. Otis, special 
master, who reported the facts and 
recommended decrees in favor of tli« 
stockholders. . « . , 

Judse Saabom'a Opinion. 
Judge Sanborn rendered decrees to- 
day which affirm the report of the 
master and enjoin the enforcement of 
the reductions after June 1, 1911. He 
holds in his opinion: , . , ^ . . 
<'l_The acts of the legislature of 
Minnesota of April 4, 1907, chapter 9T. 
reducing passenger fares within the 
state atout 33 1-3 per cent, and ot

commodity rates within the state about 
7.37 per cent, and the orders of lt» 
railroad and warehouse commission ox 
Sept. 6, 1906, reducing general mer- 
chandise rates within the state from 20 
to 25 per cent, and of May 3, 1907, re-

Physician Said Appendicitis. 

Gali Stones Expelled b| tlie Great Kidney 

I thought I would do you a favor 
and let you know what Dr. Kilmer's 
Swamp-Koot has done so far for me. 

About one year ago I was taken 
sick with a terrible pain in my right 
aide. My family physlcan pro- 
nounced it appendicitis. About two 
weeks ago I received your Almanac 
and read in it about weak kidneys, 
and my back hurting me so much, I 
thought I would try your Swamp- 
Root and to my grf>at astonishment, 
after using one bottle, I expelled 
three gall stones, which weighed 135 
grains — just think of it. My kidneys 
are not well yet, and so I have con- 
cluded to continue with Swamp-Root. 
Mr. Schwake. the druggist, thought 
that it never was appendicitis and I 
that the doctor had made a mistake. I 
It was no doubt, gall stones that! 
caused the trouble, or they would 
not have come away so soon after 
commencing with Swamp-Root. 

I shall always praise Dr. Kilmer's 
Swamp- Root to all those who suffer 
from kidney, liver and bladder 
troubles and am very thankful that 
I ever discovered such a worthy 
remedy. I feel confident that it will 
cure me entirely of all kidney and 
liver trouble.

Duluth War Veteran Claims 

Right to Vessel 


William J. Stevenson, assistant to 
the state attorney general, appeared 
before Judge Dibell this morning and 
presented his arguments in the case 
brought against Governor Eberhart 
by Albert Woolsen, the old soldier 
who claimed that he was discrim- 
inated against when he made appli- 
cation to be appointed inspector of 
steam vessels. Mr. Woolsen was 
represented by Judge S. F. White. 

Mr. Stevenson claimed that a suit 
cannot be maintained against the 
executive of a state. He claimed that 
an action against the governor was 
the same as a case against ttie state. 

At a special term of court held last 
Saturday Mr. Stevenson moved to 
quash the alternative writ. It was 
the arguments on this motion that 
were heard today. Judge Dibell took 
the mater under advisement. 

Some time ago Albert Woolsen pe- 
titioned the governor to appoint him 
inspector of steam vessels. The gov- 
ernor appointed Louis Boo. Mr. 
Woolsen claimed that he should have 
been given the position as he had 
8ho^\'n that he was qualified to hold 
the job. having had thirty-five years' 
experience with steam boilers. He 
claimed also that under the state law 
he was entitled to the preference be- 
cause of the fact that he is an old 
soldier with an honorable discharge 
from the United States army.

Duluth's New Catcher. 

Cleveland, Ohio, April 8. — (Special to 

The Herald.) — Providing hard work 

during the oft season as well as the 

playing season will get results, the 
Duluth team of the Wisconsin-Minne- 
sota league ought to have a winner 
thi.s year. 

Manager Darby O'Brien has been at 
work ever since the close of the last 
campaign trying to sign up players 
which will strengthen this year's team 
and he believes that he has lined up 
some very promising recruits. 

At present Manager O'Brien has ten 
of his recruits practicing daily at one 
of the local school grounds. Here the 
players have been getting a lot of 
practice and most of them are ready 
for the season to open. The Duluth 
team will open its exhibition series on 
Wednesday in Akron. Games will be 
played there with the Ohio & Pennsyl- 
vania league team on Wednesday, 
Thursday and Friday. On Saturday and 
Sunday the team will play in Mans- 
field and from there, Manager O'Brien 
win take his club to Fort Wayne. 

Among the players who have been 
showing up the best in the spring 
practice is Brittin, the shortstop who 
was with Saginaw in the South Michi- 
gan league last year. Brittin is a 
Cleveland boy. He is very fast on 
his feet, a strong thrower and good 
batter. At third base he ought to make 
good. Joe Leber, another Cleveland 
player, is showing up well in practice 
and will probably make good on the 
Infield. Leber played with the Hinkels, 
the leading amateur club in the city 
last vear and looks very promising. 

Fisher Is coming up to expectations 
behind the bat and will probably do. 
Fisher caught for the Sandusky inde- 
pendent team last year. Reinhart is 
an outfielder who has opened the eyes 
of Manager O'Brien. Reinhart looks 
every bit a ball player and he seems 
to have a position In the outfield 

In scouting around for a first base- 
man, Darbv O'Brien endeavored to get 
the man w"lth the longest reach possi- 
ble. He signed up Van Uum, who 
played with Marlon in the Ohio State 
league. Van Uum stands 6 feet 4 
Inches tall and has a reach that ex- 
tends nearly from first to second base. 
In addition to being able to grab wild 
throws with little effort. Van Uum Is 
able to hit fairly well. 

A few vears ago Manager O'Brien 
signed Ed Kohl, a Cleveland boy. Kohl 
made good and is now with the St. 
Paul team In the American association. 
This year O'Brien has signed a younger 
Kohl for the Duluth team. According 
to Darby, young Kohl acts like a better 
ball player than his brother Ed did 
when he was the age of this boy. Young 
Kohl is an outfielder and he Is a sensa- 
tion in fielding. 

While as yet unsigned, VIrva may be 
signed to play with Duluth this week. 
He is a first baseman but can also play 
the outfield. His showing has been 
first-class in practice and Manager 
O'Brien may tender him a contract 
soon. Pitcher Blancke, who started at 
Sandusky, will go to Youngstown in a 
day or two to have Bonesetter Reese 
examine his arm. If the famous doctor 
can fix up the injured pitching wing.

Fear of Court Decisions 

Causes Liquidation — 


The copper market was weak and 
dejected today. There was some liqui- 
dation as many traders believe that 
the supreme court will hand down a 
decision in one of the cases of interest 
to the market. It is believed that 
either the Standard OH or the Ameri- 
can tobacco case which have been be- 
fore the court for a decision for more 
than a year may be decided. The gen- 
eral belief is that the decisions will 
be ag.'iinst tlie corporations but that 
the supreme court will point out a 
way whereby the companies can con- 
tinue business with their present or- 
ganizations 'without materially chang- 
ing their forms. This being Wall 
Street's view of the situation the 
chances are that the decision will be 
totally different. If the late differences 
between Wall Street's views and va- 
rious decisions can be taken as a 

The copper market was featureless. 
North Butte was the only stock that 
displayed any strength. It sold from

162.50 to $62.25, Butte Coalition at 
$17.25, Calumet ft Arizona at $49.50,

The Boston Financial News, accord- 
ing to a wire to Paine, Webber & Co.: 
"The metal market has been rather 
quiet this week, but a fair business 
has been done. Prices are about the 
lowest touched as copper Is selling for 
12>4o and small lots for less. Lake is 
after the hand-to-mouth character as 
consumers see no reason for loading 
up and carrying stocks when produc- 
ers are willing to do so for them. The 
result is that practically all the cop- 
per delivered to home consumers goes 
into immediate consumption. It is be- 
lieved also that the invisible stocks of 
copper In Europe are smaller as ex- 
ports were comparatively light during 
January and February. The situation 
is. therefore, in splendid shape to re- 
flect an improved demand as soon as 
it sets In. There Is reason to believe 
that deliveries during the current 
month will be fairly large, but In face 
of the production little Is to be hoped 
for In the direction of favorable sta-

News arrived -today from several of 
the new porphyries, the most important 
being the announcement that Miami 
made Its first shipment of tbree cars 
of ooncentrates, estimated to run 40 
per cent copper, to the Qreene-Cananea 
■smelter. Two sections of the new mill 
are now treating 750 tons daily, and 
the third section was expected to start 
today, bringing the total per day up to 
1,000 tons. The management is very 
well satisfied with the operation of the 
plant, and expects In four or five 
months to be treating 3,000 tons daily. 
At the Keystone further development 
work is said to be contemplated, 
though no information is given out. 
Two churn drills no longer in use at 
the Miami are likely to be moved to 
the Keystone property, and It is also 
said that the latter company will build 
an aerial tramway to the Miami mill.

Extensive improvements are to be 
made at the Washoe smelter at Ana- 
conda and the Great Falls smelter is 
to receive a complete overhauling. It 
is true some improvements are now 
going on at both plants and more are 
contemplated, but perhaps not as ex- 
tensively as stated in early reports. It 
Is a well known fact that the smelting 
department of the Washoe plant is the 
equal of anything in the country to- 
day, and It is also known that the con- 
centrating department is not what it 
ought to be and is not even up to the 
concentrating department of the Great 
Falls plant. Therefore, some extensive 
changes are In process of being worked 
out with a view of bringing it up to 
the very best in the country. Some 
new machinery Is to be Installed with

the object of bringing great saving. 

The Great Falls concentrator is said 
to be ahead of the Waslioe, still it is 
believed that it can be improved and 
greater saving effected, and conse- 
quently similar improvei.ients to those 
proposed in the Washoe will be made. 
The Great Falls smelter is an old build- 
ing but the many improvements made 
and the amount of new machinery in- 
stalled from time to time in the past 
few years, have brought it about up- 
to-date. President Thay<!r of the Ana- 
conda company recently made a very 
thorough inspection of both smelters 
and he is satisfied that with the 
changes proposed the plants will be 
in a position to handlj the ore as 
cheaply and to just as g>od advantage 
as any smelters in the country.

When the Butte & Iloston Mining

Developments at the Sierra de Cobro

The underground development at this 
property, which, owing to the steep 
loi)ography it has been possible to open 
entirely by tunnels, has disclosed two 
different ore bodies, each varying from 
fifty to sixty feet in width. Drifting 
is now in progress to oiie n tliese shoots 
along the strike, and frtm present in- 
dications as far as developed, the ore 
bodies are showing larg«i and constant 
and in width. 

A contract along which the ore bodies 
at the Sierra de Cobre make, can be 
traced for a mile, over i he entire dis- 
tance of which good coiiper croppings 
are in evidence. Up t> the pre.^^ent 
time development has been confined to 
but threi! places on the outcrop, about 
1.000 f ef t ai^art where good ore has 
been encountered, showing that the ore 
bodies continue longitudinally. From 
these developments the outlook is re- 
garded as very favorable for the dis- 
covery of new shoots wthln thi.s mile 
of surface showings. A.ithough the 
property is a new one and development 
has not proceeded far there is more 
than two years' ore e:cposed at the 
present rate of production. 

The average grade of the Sierra de 
Cobro ore bodies is approximately 5 
per cent copper and five ounces of sil- 
ver per ton. In addition to tliese con- 
tents and particularly to the latter, 
which is above the average of the 
smelting material, the oie is practical- 
ly a self-fluxing mixture, making pos- 
sible a very low cost of production.

Walker's copper letter In Saturday's 
Boston Commercial says: 

"Copper continues fairly active with 
pHces unchanged. Lake is 12 Vi cents 
and electrolytic 12 »4 cents a pound. The 
heavy volume of business in March 
promises to be duplicated in April. Ex- 
ports during March proved to be quite 
large and there was a further small 
decrease in the foreign visible supply. 
Copper wire prices have been cut down 
to about 13 cents by extreme competi- 
tion in the trade and heavy sales have 
resulted. Electrical btsiness every- 
where is very good. The adoption of 
plans for several big hydro-electric de- 
velopment enterprises, and the ar- 
rangement for the el«!Ctrifioation by 
one company of 479 mies of railroad 
in England, and of oth-;r steam lines 
and terminals in differert parts of the 
world, make It apparent that the com- 
ing year or two will te a period of 
steadily increasing copper consumption. 
It is probable that consumption will in- 
crease even more rapidly than produc- 
tion for several years to come, and 
should industrial expansion be resumed 
In this country, the world's metal sur- 
plus will be absorbed ve -y quickly. 

"The report of the Coj-per Producers* 
association for the month of March, 
which will issue today, is expected to 
show a further slight increase in the 
American visible supply. It Is not Im- 
probable, however, that this will be the 
last month this year to record an ex- 
panding surplus. The heavy sales of 
copper In March should be followed by 
a considerable Increase In deliveries 
during April. With any decided im- 
provement In the American consump- 
tive demand there is p;-actically sure 
to be heavier foreign buying as Euro- 
pean consumers are watching the mar- 
ket very closely and planning to lay In 
big stocks of the metal e t low prices. 

^Some of the leading students of the 
metal situation have pi-esented argu- 
ments from time, to lime that the 
growth of copper consumption follows 
or accompanies that of iron and steel. 
A report of the United States geologi- 
cal survey, which has just been re- 
ceived, forms the basis lor the follow- 
ing comparisons: 

Pound! Pet, 
Output Iron for Kacb Valus 
C"pper l/b. Lb. Copiwr of Iron. 

foregoing table makes It clear that the 
existing copper surplus is wholly du« 
to the failure of the mining companies 
to curtail production following the 
1907 panic. The output of iron was 
reduced nearly 40 per cent In 1908 as 
compared with 1907, while copper pro- 
duction was larger than in any pre- 
ceding year. The curtailment of Iron 
output in 1908 made possible a very 
large Increase In 1909. The output of 
copper also Increased and. notwith- 
standing the remarkable expansion of 
consumption, the surplus built up in 
the last half of 1907 and the year ]90g 
remains unconsumed and Is responsible 
for the prevailing low prices. 

"The Iron and steel business Is be- 
ginning to show indications of Im- 
provement, notwithstanding that rail- 
road construction is practically at a 
standstill. It would seem probable that 
the relatively low price of copper 
should tend to Increase the demand for 
it and cause the consumption of this 
metal to greatly outstrip that for iron 
and steel this year and next. I believe 
that copper is selling as low now as 
It will, and I expect it to have an ad- 
vance of several cents a pound before 
it sells under 12 cents."

Court Holds That State Law 

Interferes With Interstate 


St. Paul, Minn.. April 8.— (Special to 
The Herald.) — Judge Walter H. San- 
born, presiding judge of the United 
States circuit court of appeals, today 
filed the order of the court in the ap- 
peal of Governor Haskell and others 
of the state of Oklahoma from the or- 
der of the circuit court of the eastern 
district of Oklahoma in what is known 
as the pipe line oases. 

Ttie circuit court of appeals enjoins 
the state of Oklahoma •from interfer- 
ing with the pipe lines. 

The title of the case Is Charles N. 
Haskell, governor of Oklahoma, et al 
appellants, vs. W. F. Cowham. 

The opinion of the court holds that 
Chapter 37 of the laws of Oklahoma of 
1907, discriminates against and pre- 
venting use of pipe lines across the 
highways of the state to transport 
such gas out of the state violates the 
Constitution of tlie United Slates and 
Is void. 

The court further holds that the pre- 
ventlon of the sale of that gas or oil 
is taking valuable property without 
just compensation in violation of Ar- 
ticle 55 of the amendment to the na- 
tional Constitution and is not Justified 
by any power of the state to conserve 
its natural resources. 


Frightened Animal PInnges Into a 
Barbed Wire Fence. 

Houghton, Mich., April 8. — (Spe- 
cial to The Herald.)— W. S. Prlckett 
of Sldnaw, proprietor of Roycroft 
farm, tells of the accidental killing 
of a deer the other day. The farm 
hands saw the deer In the morning 
running across the farm In front of 
the stables and going up the track. 
Bvldentaly it had been chased out of 
the woods by wolves. A short time 
after this appearance the deer came 
running back across the farm, having 
been headed off by Sldnaw dogs. The 
frightened animal almost ran Into 
the stable door, then turned and ran 
into a barbed wire fence, which 
caught It across the throat. The deer 
was thrown back on Ita haunches 
and then fell over with a broken 
heck. The farm hands killed It to 
stop Its sufferings. 

The deer was a good-sized doe. Mr. 
Prlckett told the farm hands, who are 
new men Just Imported from Eastern 
states, that this Incident would mean 
they could have plenty of venison ift 
season. The men dressed the deer 
and hung the meat, but Mr. Prlckett 
was informed afterward that a gam* 
warden had seized the venison and 
had sent it to the poor farm.

There are people who bear the mark 
of pain and suffering from disease of

are forming drug habits and become 
slaves to It. although they know very 
well relief Is only temporary, and their 
condition is worse than before. If you

tongue coated and you have a feeling 
of fullness la your abd(>nydn, you may 

know that your intestines are diseased

You are getting pale and losing fli?sh

cess of self-poisoning, your blood Is 
diseased and your blood vessels harden. 
which slowly but surely prepares your 
grave and your suffering is a long one. 

Rectal Piles cause cancer and many 
other diseases. Tlra bad and stagnant 
blood is forming piles, and these In 
turn result in a train of other diseases, 
as cancer, constipation, rheumatism,

Is This Man Gifted 

With Strange 

Power ? 

Prominent People Say He Reads 
Their Lives as an Open Book. 

Do You Want to Know About Your 
Business, Marriage. Changes, Oc- 
cupation, Friends, Enemies, or What 
to Do to Achieve Success? 


Attt-ntlon of the mystically Incliiud 
spein;i to be centered at present upon 
the work ot Mr. Clay Burton Vance, 
who, altljough laying claim to no spe- 
cial Ki't of supernatural powers, at- 
tempts to reveal the lives of people 
through the slender clue of birth-dales. 
The undeniable accuracy of his de- 
lineations leads one to surmise that 
heretofore palmists, prophets, astrolos- 
ers and seers of divers beliefs have 
failed to apply the true principles o£ 
the science of divination. 

It la not to be denied that astroloprers 
liave excited tlie interest of enlightened 
people of all ages, but there have been 
many earnest tl. Inkers reluctant to ac- 
cept the theories of the ancient Chal- 
dean science. One can only judjce the 
potency of the science of AstrolOKy 
>>y a personal application of its prin- 
ciples. To have all the cardinal events 
of your life spread out before you; to 
read an undeviating description of 
your true character, habits and inclina- 
tions, is proof positive that the mighty 
j.ower that shaped the universe and 
set the hands on the dial of time to 
mark the destiny of man lias not left 
us without the means through which 
we may know ourselves, through which 
we may fathom the mysteries of life. 
Asked to explain the method by which 
he gives his delineations, Mr. Vance 
replied: "I have simply resurrected an 
ancient science and moulded It into 
a key to human nature."' 

The following letters are published 
as evidence of Mr. Vance's ability. Mr. 
Lafayette Kedditt writes: "My Reading 
received. With the greatest amaze- 
ment I read, as step by step you out- 
lined my life since infancy. I have 
been somewhat interested along these 
lines for years, but had no idea that 
sutii priceless advice could be given. 
I must admit that you are Indeed a 
very remarkable man. and am glad you 
use your great gift to benelit your

Stops Falling Hair — Others 

Imitate and Make Similar 

Claims, but the Genuine 

and Original Dandruff 

Germ Destroyer is 

Newbro's Herpi- 


The discovery of the dandruff germ 
as the cause of all hair troubles Is 
not a recent event. Prof. Unna gave 
the germ theory to the world in 1887 
and two years later Sabouraud by 
his experiments with a rabbit proved 
beyond a doubt the actual existence 
of this germ. 

On tiie heels of this establishment 
of the germ theory came the discov- 
ery of Newbro's Herpiclde. This was 
the first and only remedy for the de- 
struction of the dandruff germ. 

There have been other preperations 
alleged to kill this perm, stop falling 
hair and itching of the scalp. But 
Newbro's Herpiclde really does these 
things. For this reason it has long 
been known as the original remedy 
and the only one that is genuine. 

Don't be fooled by preparations 
which are trading upon the marvel- 
ous success of Herpiclde. Remember 
you take no chances with Newbro's 
Herpiclde. It is absolutely guaran-

Early Landmark of Duluth 
Disposed of at Sher- 
iff's Sale. 

Was Popuhr Resort m Days 

When Duluth Was 

Frontier Town. 

The ordinary sheriff's sale is com- 
monplace, but today that official con- 
ducted a sale to which an unusual 
amount of interest attached. He put 
Boyle's European hotel and cafe under 
the hammer. It was bid In by the 
holder of the mortgage. 

The name "Boyle's" is known all 
over the city. Scarcely a man or wom- 
an wlio has resided here any length 
of time but who has lieard of it. Since 
its establishment in Its present loca- 
tion at 319 West Superior street. In the 
eaily days of Duluth, its fame has ex- 
tended throughout the Northwest, and 
it Is familiar to hundreds of people In 
the Twin Cities who frequent the 
"lobster palaces," for Boyle's was as 
noted as any of them in this line in Its 

The passing of the place into the 
annals of the past carries with It a 
twinge of regret to scores of the old 
timers In Duluth. They spent many 
hours there, with other congenial 
friends v/ho made merry around the 
tables and at the bar. When it was 
in the heyday of its glory a veritable 
golden stream poured into its coffers. 
The name recalls the days when many 
of Duluth's now wealthy men were 
laying the foundations of their for- 
tunes. Rough and ready, coming in 
from their explorations on the iron 
ranges or from the great lumber camps 
which thev were building up, they 
turned as if by instinct to "Boyle's." 
Here they met the others of their fel- 
lows, coming and going, "swapping" 
experiences, narrating hair-breath es- 
capes, and often "staking" one another 
for the next trip, which they always 
hoped would make them rich. Duluth 
wasn't much better than a frontier 
town on a fairly large scale In those 
times, and to the men who were here 
then, the mention of "Boyle's" is a re- 
minder of them. 

But recen.tly It seemg to have lost 
Its "hold." The patronage has not been 
what it was and the reputation of the 
upstairs wine rooms, was none too 
savory. In an attempt to re-establish 
it, the place was completely remodeled 
throughout, but the effort seems to 
have been useless. It has been "hang- 
ing on" until the last hope was futile, 
and the result was the sheriff's sale

being permitted to land. 

A touch of humor was lent to the 
landing by one young woman who 
carrFed a shore a hatbox with at least 
twenty-seven cubic foet of space In- 
side. She got the privilege of salvag- 
ing her hat from the Irene by sub- 
stituting It for one or her suit cases. 
It was too near Easter to take a 
chance of leavings the Paris millinery

.Storm Is Coinlnar. 

Lone Hill I.lfe-Saving Station, L. I., 
April 8. — Daybreak today showed the 
stranded steamer Prlnzess Irene in a 
position which varied only a few de- 
grees from that of yesterday. The 
efforts of the tUgs at high tide and the 
action of a veering wind had swung 
her nose a little further off shore, so 
that she presented less of the broad- 
side to the watchers on land. 

The changing of the wind Into the 
northeast and the appearance of gray- 
ish clouds on the horizon were the 
items that attracted chief attention 
from the life-savers as they took their 
early morning observations through 
the lifting haze. Although the wind 
was scarcely more than a oreeze, there 
were Indications which the weather- 
wise regarded as ominous. "A north- 
easter and a hard blow coming," was 
the way it was interpreted by surf- 

However, with the passengers all 
safely landed, and the keel of the big 
ship flat In a bed of sand, a blow of 
moderate Intensity will not have the 
terrors for the captain and crew which 
It would have had twenty-four hours 
ago. The fleet of tugs anchored near 
by Insured ample assistance in emerg- 
ency, while the bulwark of sand piled 
upon all sides of the liner's keel was 
regarded as a protection from sudden 

The work of lightering the cargo be- 
ban at 7 o'clock. The cargo will be an 
easy one to handle. It consists for the 
most part of lemons, macaroni and 
similar products of the Mediterranean, 
packed In small cases. Only one lighter 
was available for the work when the 
transfer was, begun, but two more were 
on tl.elr way* one from New York and 
one from Boston. With fair weather It 
was expected that a considerable pro- 
portion of the cargo could be moved 
In forty-eight hours. Elxperts on the 
shore were of the opinion that dredges 
would be found necessary to shift the 
sand from about her keel before the 
Irene could be floated. 

The customs authorities sent Inspec- 
tor Dunbar out to the Lone Hill station 
at daybreak with orders to board the 
Prlnzess Irene and superintend tho 
lightering of the cargo. 

In Just five hours and ten minutes 
yesterday afternoon the 1,720 cabin 
and steerage passengers on the strand- 
ed North German Lloyd liner Prlnzess 
Irene were transferred to the deck of 
her sister ship, the Prlnz Frlederich 
Wilhelm, and one hour after nightfall 
they were safely on their way to New

ReMcne Syetem First Used. 

It was the first time that the federal 
rescue svstem was brought Into action 
In the anthracite coal region and Evans 
is regarded as the real hero of the day. 
It has not yet been definitely estab- 
lished how he came to his death. One 
theory is that In adjusting his helmet, 
after bumping it against the low roof 
of the smoke-filled gangway, he re- 
leased it slightly from his head and In 
doing so inhaled black damp. Another

theory advanced by Dr. Holmes Is that 
Evans may have died from carbon di- 
oxide poisoning. He said the air ex- 
haler In the helmet Is generated by the 
oxygen and breathed again. A wearer 
of the helmet. Dr. Holmes said, who 
overexerted him.self might meet the 
fate that befell Evans, if there is much 
gas in the mine, "it is like a man run- 
ning uphill. The supply Qf fresh air 
is not sufficient and a man wearing a 
helmet dies from carbon dioxide." 

The revised list of t^e English- 
speaking victims of the fire, in addition 
to Evans, Is as follows: 

WALTER KNIGHT, mine foreman, 
married, five children. 

ISAAC DAWES, fire boss, married, 
four children. 

JOHN PERRY, miner, married, one 
child; he was a Scranton city council- 

JOHN MAY, company hand, married, 
three children. 

JOHN GREGSON, company hand, 

EDWARD HART, tender, married, 
three children. 

JAMES WALLACE, company hand, 
married, six children. 

THOMAS MacWALTERS, miner, mar- 
ried five children.. 

MICHAEL GALL, miner, married. 

HARRY ROTH WELL, miner, mar- 

LAWRENCE RITZ, doorman, mar- 
ried, one son. . 

Others among the victims are: John 
Stroyak. who had five children; two 
sons, Stephen and John, Jr., one a door 
boy, the other a driver, perished with 
him. Victor Wasdenlk and his two 
brothers, Emll and John, all miners, 
were also among the victims. 

Rescue Uangrs at Work. 

All tlirough the night the rescue 
gangs kept at their gruesome task of 
picking up the dead who law strewn 
along the farther parts of the ill-fated 
tunnel of the Pancoast colllerv. from 
off which was the chambers and head- 
ings Into which they had entered for 
their day's toil. Before midnight 
twenty-one bodies, including that of 
Foreman Evans of the government's 
rescue car, had been placed In an Im- 
provised morgue in the engine house 
near the head of the shaft. At 4 
o'clock this morning there was another 
garnering of twenty-one additional 
bodies and tnese, one at a time, were 
hoisted to the surface and carried Into 
the temporary morgue erected bv the 
company. There the company's " pay- 
master. Carl Raymond, Claim Agent 
P. A. O'Boyle, George Cooper secretarv 
of the miners' local union, 'and John E. 
Jones, outside foreman, were engaged 
in making Identifications. As fast as 
an identification was accomplished the 
body was passed out Into one of a score 
of dead wagons which undertakers 
from all parts of the Lackawanna val- 
ley had lined up. The eagerness with 
which these were grabbed up bv the 
undertakers and their employes called 
forth Inuignation from the onlookers, 
some yelline' "body snatchers" at them 
as their ambulances were hurried awa-y. 
Stories of Brave Deed*. 

Stories of brave deeds done by res- 
cuers are being told today by miners 
who had been warned of the fire in 
time to make their escape. It is re- 
lated that Councilman Perry, Mine 
Foreman Knight and Fire Boss Dawes 
perished as a result of their going into 
the depths of the mine to warn others 
of their danger. They were overcome 
before they could return to safety. 

There is a difference of opinion 
among mine workers as to whether the 
men who lost their lives could have 
been saved. Some think that If all 
men in the underworkings had been 
immediately notified that there was a 
fire In the mine, all could have gotten 
out before the workings became filled 
with smoke and gas. Others believe 
that It was Impossible for any man 
or boy In the blind gangway to make 
his escape as the black damp quickly 
penetrated every part of the "China' 
vein beyond the fire zone. It gets its 
name from the fact that It is the low- 
est vein In the mine and therefore 
nearest to China. 

The bodies of the dead showed that 
all had made a hard struggle for life, 
burying their faces In the culm and 
wrapping their coats about their 
heads in an effort to ward off the 
poisonous air.

The disaster was the worst In tho

section, exceeding the number of dead

men and boys lost their lives by en- 

When searchers for bodies came to 
the surface at 9:4.'>, with twelve more 
victims they reported that four other 
lifeless mine workers were lying at 
the bottom of the shaft, making the 
total number recovered up to that 
time, seventy. The searchers reported 
that the victims were found In heaps 
and In groups of three, five and six.

The Pennsylvania legislature Is still 
in session and It Is likely that fur- 
ther legislation to protect miners and 
mine property will be presented as a 
result of new lessons learned In this 
latest mine horror. All anthracite 
mines under the law of Pennsylvania 
must have second openings so that the 
underground workers may have at 
least two chances of escape, and legis- 
lation may be presented to provide that

made to bring out men that are cut

timber wolf Thursday morning. Mr.

Sucker lake, which Is about nine miles 
from here and as usual left his camp

in the forest, he saw what appeared to 
be wolf tracks, wiilch were new and 
had only been traversed that morning.

wa-j cut down and taken to \ irginla

There was nothing to establish the 
identitv. The man had apparently been 
dead several days and the body will 
be buried at once. It was evidently a 
case of suicide. 

At last! The 
weather man comes 
across with a fair 
and warmer predic- 
tion for tonight and 
tomorrow. If he 
makes good, there 
will be rejoicing. 
The temperature 

wasn't so bad last

Isn t cold, but there 
was another snow- 
fall this morning, 
and the sun is having a hard time 
breaking through the clouds today. 
Let's hope he makes good on this fair

comment on weather conditions: 

"During the last twenty-four hours 
light snow or rain fell over Eastern 
North Dakota. Minnesota, Western 
Wisconsin. Iowa, Eastern Nebraska, 
Missouri, New Mexico, Northern Texas, 
Northern Louisiana, Tennessee, North 
Carolina and Virginia principally as a 
result of the low pressure condition 
overlying the West Gulf region. Tern- 

were given In Polish, Austrian, Italian 
and Finnish by local residents. Morris 
Kaplan of Duluth, and J. P. Nast of 
Minneapolis, were unable to appear De- 
cause of other engagements. Repre- 
sentative N. S. Hillman of Two Har- 
bors, the lone Socialist member of the 
state legislature will be requested to 
use every elTort to secure the passag« 
of such a bill. 

peratures have risen somewhat over 
the Upper Mlssissljipl valley. A low 
pressure area over British Columbia Is 
causing warmer weather in the ex- 
treme Northwest. The high pressure 
over South Dakota has caused colder 
weather over Wvoming, Colorado, Ne- 
braska and South Dakota. At the Head 
of the Lakes the weather will be gen- 
erallv fair during the ensuing thirty- 
six hours."

"I became satisfied some months

a coffee drinker for 30 years) but I 
found it very hard to give up the

ought to be prepared — by 
boiling for not les than 
minutes. After I learned 
son there was no trouble. 

"Postum proved to be a most palat- 
able and satisfactory hot beverage, 
and I have used it ever since. 

"The effect on my health has been 
most salutary. The heart palpitation 
from which I used to suffer so much, 
particularly after breakfast, has dis- 
appeared and I never have a return 
of it except when I

Andrew Cooper. Billy Zaba an* 
John Kosh, charged with the burg- 
lary of the postoffice and store ot 
Morse at Cromwell, Carltoiv 
Tuesday night, were ar- 
before United States Com- 
missioner T. H. Pressnell this morn- 
ing. They all pleaded not guilty and 
asked for hearings. Cooper's hearing- 
will be held next Friday morning and. 
Zaba and Kosh will have their hear- 
ing Saturday morning before Com- 
missioner Pressnell. 

There is some doubt as to whether 
Zaba and Kosh will ultimately ba 
charged with the burglary, although, 
a charge will be laid against them 
of attempting to dispose of stolen 
postage stamps. The two men clalnv 
that the stamps they had in their- 
ppssesslon when they were arrested 
w«'re found near the railroad tra< k. 
The authorities believe Cooper is the- 
man responsible for the burglary and. 
are inclined to accept the story of 
the other men. 

Cooper was noticed getting on a 
train at Wright Wednesday morning 
after he had purchased a ticket for- 
Duluth. His appearance excited sus- 
picion and Sheriff McKSnnon of Carl- 
ton county was notified. He met the- 
train at Carlton and arrested. 
Cooper. Cooper was in the toilet 
for some time while the train was 
going between Wright and Carlton, 
and he is believed to have thrown 
the stamps out of the window. 

Zaba and Kosh were selling stamps 
at Sawyer, In Carlton county, Wed- 
nesday evening. The sheriff and a. 
deputy went there and arrested the 
two men. They admitted they had 
been selling the stamps, but claimed 
that they found them near the track. 
A revolver, which had been stolen* 
from the store, was found at the- 
point where the two men say they 
found the stamps. 

Morse's store was entered TuesdaJ 
night and one, two, three and four- 
cent stamps amounting to $44.20 in: 
all were taken, besides a number of 
articles from the store. The United 
States government authorities are- 
concerned with the taking of 
stamps only, and Cooper will 
secuted on that charge. 

United States Deputy 
George J. Mallory went to 
yesterday afternoon and brought the 
prisoners to Duluth. They are 
at the county Jail.

North Sydney. C. B., April S. — Caught 
In the great fields of drifting ice in the 
Oulf of St. Lawrence, the steamer Har-

The 130 men on board escaped over the 

the senate committee on reapportion- 
ment last evening voted unanimously 
to recommend the Hanson bill for pas- 
.sage, and decided to move Monday 
morning, when the report is made to 
the house, that It be made a special 
order for Tuesday evening. 

That is the earliest possible moment, 
as under the rules one day's notice 
must be given of a motion to make a 
;-peclal order, and the day is to be 
taken up wiili the appropriation bills, 
which are a special order for Tuesday 
in the senate as well a.s In the house. 
Nintk District R«arrauKe«l. 
One senator was added to the mem- 
bership of the senate by the amend- 
ments adopted evening. This was 
the result of amendments offered by 
Senator Marden of the Clay-VVilkin- 
Becket- district. His was to 
prevent joining Becker county with 
Xorman, and in order to do that he had 
to rearrange the greater part of the 
Xinth congressional district, with the 
result that he creates by his amend- 
ments, which were adopted by the 
oonimlttee, the following senatorial 

Becker and Hubbard counties. 
Pennington and Red Lake counties. 
Clay and Wilkin counties, 
Nurnian, Clearwater and Mahnomen 

Wadena and Todd counties. 
Kach district, except the Pennington 
and Red Lake di.strict. which will have 
but one, will have two house mem- 

."""enator Coller who objected to join- 
ing Scott and Le Sueur counties and 
wanted to attach Scott to Carver, pro- 
amendments rearranging the 
Third congressional district as it was 
In the t'ongdon bill. This would have 
left adjoining district.*; Incomplete and 
would have necessitated radical rear- 
rangements of the bill. Besides. Sena- 
tor Klein of Carver county objected to 
having his county Joined with Scott. 
So the Coller amendments were re- 

Tlie committee adopted an amend- 
ment proposed by Senator Lende. which 
takes Lincoln county out of the Four- 
teenth district and adds it to the Fif- 
teenth, with Lyon and Yellow Medi- 
cine, without changing the representa- 
tion of the two districts. 

Effective in 1014. 
Senator Gunn then offered the amend- 
ments making the bill effective at the 
election following May 1. 1914. 

Senators Sundberg, Hanson and V. L. 
Johnson explained that while they all 
preferred to have the bill effective at 
once, and were on record by their 
votes on the Congdon bill, they would 
vote for the new bill in any event. 

Senator Lende said that If he voted 
for It with the amendment, his ene- 
mies in his district would say that he 
changed because he did not want to cut 
his term In t%vo; but other members of 
the committee assured him that no'»ody 
would suspect him of such a thing. 

Senator Rockne spoke for the amend- 
ment in behalf of those members of the 
senate whose districts are eliminated 
by the bill. He said that the legisla- 
ture never even legislates a justice of 
the peace out of office and It shouldn't 
legislate senators out of office. So far 
a.s those whose districts are unchanged 
are concerned, he said they were en- 
titled to no consideration. 

The amendment was adopted. Senator 
Lende voting against it. 

I"nless something happens to change 
things, the outlook last nigl.t was not 
only that the bill will pass the senate, 
l>ut that it might pass by a pretty large 

It win then go to the house, and 
while It will not get so man'- votes 
there as the Congdon bill. It will prob- 
ably pass.

Duffy's Pure i^alt Whiskey 

is an absolutely pure distillation of malted grain, and as none but 
sound, clean grain can be malted, it has for its base the carefully- 
selected grains of the field. It is a predigosted liquid food in the 
form of a medicinal whiskey; its palatability and freedom from 
injurious substances render it so that it can be retained by the most 
sensitive stomach. 

It is a gentle, invigorating stimulant and tonic that influences for 
good every important organ of the body. It is a remedy that should 
be in the family medicine chest. It is especially valuable for use at 
this time to enrich the blood and rebuild the system that has become 
run down and weakened from the long strain of winter. 

Duffy's Pure Malt Whiskey is the only .whiskey that was taxed by 
the Government as a medicine during the Spanish-American war.

N orthern R ational fiank 


vide for the direct election of senators 
the natural thing to do was to pass 
the Ki'ofe bill. 

Instead, in .spite of the warning that 
it is impossible to get a new senate 
bill through the l)ouse because of the 
congested conditions there, the Repub- 
lican members of the senate pa.ssed 
what Senator Ole O. Sageng of Otter 
Tall county clear-headedly branded as 
a humbug, an abortion and a shell 

l.lttle Itlen of Itit I'rovlitionN. 

It was made clear, during the de- 
bate, which lasted until nearly " o'clock 
last evening, that the Republicans who 
were backing the Murray hill had very 
little idea of its provisions before the 
measure was taken up. It provided, in 
Its original form, for the nomination 
of party candidates for senator at the 
primary election and for a vote by the 
people at the general election upon 
the nominees. Then this curious pro- 
vision followed: "Our representatives 
and senators in the legislative assem- 
bly as such otTicers are hereby in- 
structed to vote for and elect the can- 
uidate for United State.s senator from 
this state who receives the highest 
number of votes at our general election 
held In accordance with the laws of the 
state of Minnesota." 

That was th.^ form in v.-hich the bill 
was introduced and recommended to 
nasa by the senate committee on elec- 
tions. There Is no such thing In Min- 
nesota as a "legislative assembly," and 
an instruction from one legislature to 
all subsequent legislatures to vote for 
certain candidates for senator has no 
more effect than a suggestion of mod- 
eration whispered to the nortli wind., that was "the original 
provision of the bill on which the Re- 
publican majority of the senate took 
Its stand. 

The absurdity of the measure is 
made clearer when It Is understood 
where it came from — something that 
few of its friends knew. Judging from 
yesterday's proceedings. It was a copy 
of a former senatorial election law in 
Oregon, before the present Oregon 
system came into effect. It was pro- 

Cosed under the Initiative and adopted 
y the people of that state. Coming 
from the people. It was a mandate that 
had some force. Coming from one leg- 
islature and addressed to future legis- 
latures, it was neither forceful nor 

After the Lende bill, which was very 
similar to the Keefe bill, had been dis- 
posed of. Senator Works moved that 
the Keefe bill be subsituted for the 
Murray bill. He pointed out that there 
are only a few days left In which to 
do a lot of work, and that the house Is 
"In a congested tf not a chaotic state," 
so that there was no chance for a 
senate bill sent over at this time to 
pass that body. 

Senator Murray opposed the motion, 
saying that If the house wanted to 
pass his bill It could make a special 
order of It and get It through. 

"I understand the reason for your 
motion Is," said Senator Haycraft to 
Senator Works, "that the house can't 
pass any more bills sent over by the 
senate." . , „ 

"That Is correct, said Senator 
Works. „ ,, „ 

"I would like to know, said Sena- 
tor Haycraft with a twinkle In his 
eye "If that Includes the pending re- 
apportionment bill." There was no re- 
ply, and none was expected. ..,,». 

Senator G. H. Sullivan said that the 
senate should not consent to have the 
Oregon plan crowded down Its throat, 
as It would destroy what Is left of 
party organization In this state. 

Senator Fosseen of Minneapolis, Re- 
publican, moved as a substitute for 
Senator Works' motion that the sen- 
ate take up the Murray bill, which was 
first on the special order. 

Senator Dwinnell of Minneapolis, Re- 
publican, said that the senate should 
pass the Murray bni and keep the 
Keefe bill to see what the house wul 
do with the Murray bill, and then If 
that bill falls In the house, the senate 
could pass the Keefe bill. 

Ursed the Keefe Bill. 

Senator Qlotzbach. Democrat, made 
an Impassioned speech for the Keefe 
bill, saying that results, not party ad- 
vantage, should be sought. There is 
nothing to be gained, he said, by nurs- 
ing party government. The people 
have been bo affronted by the rotten 
conditions resulting from It that they 
have been kept busy clearing out cor- 
rupt party organizations. This matter 
should bo left to the pefl^le. as they 
can be trusted. * .j 

Senator J. D. Sullivan, Democrat, said 
that It was an absurd proposition to 
send the Murray bill over to the house, 
as that was the last that would be 
heard of it. 

"The Murray bill." he said, "is 
simply a scheme to sidetrack the whole 
thing. The Keefe bill makes the people's 
selection of a senator mean something.

The Murray bill makes it meaningless. 
If the senate really wants to meet the 
popular demand for direct election of 
senators, it should pass the Keefe bill, 
which has already passed the house and 
can become a law In twenty-four 

Fosseen's motion to take up the 
Murray bill was carried, 35 to 20, by 
nearly a strict party vote. Handlan, 
Democrat, voted, for taking up the 
Murray bill, and Gunderson. Republican, 
voted against It. Otherwise the vote, 
which was as follows, was strictly 
along party lines: 

For the motion — Anderson. Benson, 
Boyle, Clague, L.. O. Cooke. Dale, Den- 
egree. Duea, Dunn, Duxbury, Dwin- 
nell, Elwell Fosseen. Gunn, Hackney. 
Handlan, Hanson. Haycraft. Johnston. 
Klein, Lende, Murray. Nelson, Odell, 
Pugh, Putnam, Rockne, Saugstad, Steb- 
bins. G. H. Sullivan. Sundberg, Swan- 
son. Thoe, Wallace. Wilson — 35. 

Against the motion — Ahmann, Cash- 
man. Cheadle, C. F. Cook, Donaldson, 
Glotzbach, Gunderson, C. D. Johnson, 
LHerault, McGrath. Moonan, Pauly, 
Peterson, Poehler, Sageng, Schaller,

Works— 20. , ,. ^ ^ 

Absent or not voting — Bedford, Car- 
penter, Coller, Froshaug, V. L. John- 
son, Marden, Olson. 

Senator Moonan offered an amend- 
ment to the Murray bill striking out 
all after the enacting clause and sub- 
stituting the provisions of the Keefe 
bin. This was lost by a strictly party 
vote, except that Gunderson. Repub- 
lican, voted with the Democrats. 
SagenK 1" SaroaMtli*. 
Senator Sageng, Populist. then 
analyzed the bill and discussed it 
with cutting sarcasm. ., ... 

"This Murray bill." he said, Is not 
worth the paper it is written on. The 
only thing in it that makes the 
people's choke binding on the legis- 
lature is the absurd langauge of Sec- 
tion 4 (the provision quoted above.) 
It is an abortion from beginning to 
end. It doesn't protect party lines. 
Under the Keefe bill candidates for 
the legislature have a choice whether 
or not they siiall sign the pledge, 
binding them to vote for the peoples 
choice. This bill directs them all to 
vote for the man who gets the highest 
vote. The only advantage In it Is 
that It gives legislators a chance to 
dodge the whole business by saying 
that they are not bound unless the 
people of their districts bappen to 
vote for the man who gets the highest 

"it is a confidence game on the 
people of the state, and that's all it is. 
Senator Victor L. Johnson said that 
he couldn't see how this legislature 
can pass a law making it the duty of 
subsequent legislatures to vote for any 
certain candidates. ,, .u * «<> tu^ 

Senator Gunderson said that if tne 
legislature Is going to pas.s a bill of 
this kind, it should pass one that has 
some meaning. . . ^. 

Senator Haycraft. chairman of the 
elections committee. Republican floor 
leadf>r and chief of the anti-reappor- 
tiontsts proposed an amendment cut- 
ting out the provision for a vote at the 
general election, leaving It merely a 
primary nomination of senators, and 
eliminating the section directing sen- 
ators and representatives to vote for 
the people's choice. 

"Now, " said Senator Sageng, "the cat 
Is getting out of the bag in good shape. 
There Is to be no vote at all at the 
general election. The machinery pro- 
posed Is only for party caucuses. 

"If you think you can fool the people 
with a skin game like this, you are 

Senator Dwinnell and others thought 
there ought to be some way of binding 
legislators, and on motion of Senator 
Havcraft a of ten minutes was 
takVn to whip the bill into shape, or 
as one senator expressed It, to "let 
the Republican party try to get it? 
feet under it." 

After the recess the Haycraft amend- 
ment, changed so it left In the bill the 
direction to the legislators, amended 
so as to declare that It is the duty of 
the legislators to vote for their party 
nominees, was adopted, 36 to 24. The 
vote was nearly on party lines, except 
that Senator Handlan voted with the 
Republicans and Senators Gunderson, 
Sundberg and Wallace with the Demo- 

Senator Dwinnell offered a substitute 
for section 4, providing that wherever 
any candidate gets the highest number 
of votes at the primary election It sball 
be the duty of the legislators of his 
party to vote for him. Senator Dwin-

New York, April 8. — R. G. Dun & Co.'s 
weekly review of trade says: Somewhat 
slower movement of trade Is revealed 
in most of the reports from different 
sections. Fundamental conditions are 
undoubtedly sounder and better than 
in a long time past, but Immediate 
business, while necessarily large In 
view of the constant requirements of 
an Immense population, shows reduced 
activity for the time being because the 
period of retrenchment and readjust- 
ment Is not yet ended. The optimism 
that prevails abroad, and especially In 
England, is beginning to have its ef- 
fect In this country and must be 
counted as one of the Influences work- 
ing for Improvement. 

While there is evidence that consum- 
ers of iron and steel are showing less 
disposition to anticipate requirements 
than for some time past, the general 
situation presents several encouraging 
aspects, notwithstanding that bookings 
of leading producers are on a dimin- 
ished scale. One of the favorable fea- 
tures is the steady reduction In accu- 
mulated stocks of pig Iron. In spite of 
the fact that production during March 
rose to the highest point since July, 
1910. Moreover, several furnaces have 
been added to the active list, and the 
combined output Increased sharply last 

On the other hand, current buying In 
pig Iron Is limited In practically all 
markets, Cincinnati being in exception, 
although It Is notable ths^t quotations 
there are not quite so firmly held. In 
tlnlshed materials, specific quotations 
are showing a falling off in most lines, 
but wire continues active. 

While Indications are not lacking 
that there has been some shrinkage in 
net profits as a consequenie of the re- 
duced volume of transactlo is, a steadier 
and firmer tone to the <;otton goods 
market was given during the week by 
a recovery In prices from the low 
levels touched on side sheetings and 
4-4 bleached cottons, and also bv con- 
sistent purchases for the well estab- 
lished needs of a larger printer. Ex- 
port trade has been better than a year 

The tariff aeltatlon centering upon 
the wool schedule has naturally led to 
cautious operations on th^ part of all 
merchants handling dresii goods and 
men's wear. The yarn markets, by In- 
activity on a broad scale continue to 
reflect the curtailed output of many 
miscellaneous textile mlUj. 

In footwear, some manufacturers are 
fairly busy, but others are feeling the 
lack of supplementary seasonable or- 
ders and their cutting rooms are es- 
pecially dull at the presert time. 

Success In Sfrength, 

Not in Brains 


Stauilaa and Physical li^ndarance 
Real Ke7 to Success. 

Many men with ordinary brains make 
huge successes. Many brilliant nrven 
make up the vast human derelicts that 
have foundered because they lacked 
motive power — otherwise called, steam, 
vim and snap. 

Most men and women must and 
should rely upon a safe and effective 
nerve-lnvigorator "every once In a 
while, to "recharge their batteries." 

What can you do when your strength 
vanishes, no matter how brainy you 
might be? 

Make-Man Tablets are wonderful 
builders of nerve-strength and puri- 
fiers of the blood. The first box always 
proves It. They are absolutely safe 
for men, women and children. 

Make-Man Tablets give a sptendid, 
youthful tone to the nerves. Infuse am- 
bition, give self-confidence, quicken 
the brain. dlsi»el worry, sharpen the 
memory, give a keen edge to the ap- 
petite and refreshing and sound sleep. 

If you lack ambition, have Nervous 
Prostration, Kidney or Liver Trouble, 
Insomnia or Rh'.-'umatlsm, you will say 
Make^Man Tablets are remarkable. 

Make-Maji Tablets are sold at all 
drug stores at 60 cents a box. If you 
want to try them before buying. Just 
drop a line to the Make-Man Tablet

the majority party primaries and nom- 
inate the weakest candidate. "This is 
a plan," he said, "to elect a Democrat 
to the United States senate." 

"The wliole proceeding on the part 
of those pushing the Murray bill," said 
Senator Sageng again, "is to fool the 
people and make them think they have 
got something when they are getting 
nothing at all. It is child's play." 

The Dwinnell amendment was adopt- 
ed, 35 to 25, again by nearly a party 

Senator Moonan. Democrat, offered 
an amendment providing for a pledge 
to be signed by candidates, as in the 
Keefe bill. St-nator Wilson offered a 
substltule pledging legislative candi- 
dates to vote as their districts voted. 

"That, " said Senator Duxbury, 'would 
be a scheme to prevent the election of 
a United States senator. It would often 
happen that unless some members vio- 
lated their pledges, there would be a 
perpetual deadlock." 

Senator Rockne wanted to reject all 
pending amendments and pass tlie bill 
as it was. 

"This is going far enough for the 
present," he said. "Let us copy after 
some safe and sane state, and not all 
the time after Oregon." 

•If this thing of copying after Ore- 
gon keeps on," said Senator Putnam, 
'pretty soon all we shall need to do Is 
to buy a copy of the Oregon statutes, 
change the word Oregon to Minnesota 
wherever It appears, and adopt It as 
the law of this state." 

•That," said Senator Sageng. "would 
be a much more sensible thing to do 
than to adopt this absurd bill." 

Senator Wilson withdrew his amend- 
ment, and the Moonan amendment was 
rejected, 21 to 37. 

Schaller Opposes Bill. 
Senator Schaller, Democrat, who had 
kept silent up to this time, entered the 

"Long experience." he said, "has 
made me a little shy when I see the 
roller being steamed up. Nevertheless, 
I think I should state why 1 am op- 
posed to this bill. I might have voted 
for the Murray bill as it stood orig- 
inally, but the Murray bill has been 
amputated, ex.-orlated, and changed till 
its own parent could hardly recognize 
it. It does not do what 1 supposed was 
intended wlien the words 'election of 
United States senators by the direct 
vote of the people' were used in the 
campaign. I supi»osed that meant just 
what the words Imply. This bill does 
not mean that. It means a primary 
nomination, a party caucus, not an 
election. It is strictly a party measure, 
and it does not appeal to me as a citi- 
zen. I care so little for purely party 
affairs that 1 have no further Interest 
in it." 

Senator G. H. Sullivan offered an 
amendn^.ent providing lor a mutilated 
version of the Oregon pledge. Candi- 
dates "may" sign either one of two 
statements; one pledging themselves to 
vote for the choice of their party as 
disclosed at the primary election, the 
other stating that they regard the 
party verdict at the primaries aa a 
mere recommendation, whicli they can 
adopt or not as they see fit. 

This measure hadn't been considered 
for more than a few minutes when 
some of the Republican leaders real- 
ized that It went further than they had 
Intended to go, and when opposition 
arose Senator Sullivan withdrew his 

Senator Moonan, the ubiquitous au- 
thor of Democratic amendments to Re- 
publican party measures, promptly re- 
offered the Sullivan amendment under 
his own name, and on the roll call 
enough Republicans joined with the 
Democrats to adopt it by a vote of 39 
to 22. The most important amendment 
to the bill, therefore. Is by a Democrat 
and was made possible by Democratic 

The bill as amended then went to a 
vote. Senator Sageng. explaining his 
vote, said that the measure reminded 
him of a story of a professor and some 
of his students who tried to puzzle him 
by skillfully joining together parts of 
several different kinds of bugs and ask- 
ing him to tell them what this strange 
insect v^SLS 

"This." said the professor, after look- 
ing it over carefully, "Is a humbug." 
Murray BUI Carried. 
"I can't follow the steam roller to 
absurdity," said Senator Duxbury. Re- 
publican. In voting against the bill. "I 
had rather vote for the Oregon nlan 
than this. The Oregon plan offers a 
chance to prevent bad nominations, and 
this doesn't. Under the Oregon plan 
the people can correct party mistakes 
at the polls, but that Is impossible un- 
der this bill." 

The Murray bill was carried, 44 to 17, 
several Democrats Joining with the Re- 

The Keefe bill was then placet^ at the 
head of the calendar and It mav be 
passed before the session ends. Unless 
it Is passed toere will be no step taken 
toward the direct election of United 
State senators at this session. The vote

Oificeps of Newspaper 'Corporations

New' York, April 8.— Officers of a 
newspaper corporation cannot be held 
personally responsible fir the news-

Such was the decision of the appellate 
division of the supreme court yes- 
terday In the case brought by John 
D. Rockefeller, Jr., against S. S. 
Carvalho, president; Bradford Merrill, 
treasurer; and Edward H. Clark, sec- 
retary of the Star comp tny, publisher 
of the New York Amerlcin. The court 
orders all proceedings against them 

As officers of the n« wspaper cor- 
poration Carvalho, Merrill and Clark 
were arrested on the charge of crim- 
inal libel. The newspaper article for 
wlilch it was sought to hold them re- 
sponsible related to alleged abuses of 
workingmen by a corporation, which it 
was alleged, John D. Rockefeller, Jr..

Another Afternoon Wasted. 

The liouse got Into another snarl 
yesterday afternoon, and when It ad- 
journed after a wasted afternoon. It 
was about near breaking up In a row 
as often happens. 

Representative Christie moved that 
the vote whereby the Mattson-Hopklns 
resolution requiring a two-thirds vote 
to make a special order was lost, be 

A call of the house was demanded. 
The call had proceeded only a little 
way down the roll call when It was 
moved that further proceedings under 
the call be dispensed with. 

Representative Pfaender demanded a 
roll call on that motion, and got It. 
The house went from roll call to roll 
call and from call of the house to call 
of the house, doing nothing and never 
even getting back to the Christie mo- 
tion. The chamber was in a tur- 
moil moat of the time. 

At one time during the proceedings 
Representative Rines, In disgust, 
moved that the house adjourn sine 
.lie. but the motion was not, of course, 
considered. . „^ ^ , 

Representative Greene of St. Paul 
moved that the house buy Itself a box 
of rattles to play with. 

In the meantime, no business was 
done. The house Is so far behind with 
its work that nothing of moment can 
get done except by making a special 
order of It, and the senate has ceased 
to worry about getting Its bills over

High School Students Adapt 

"Merchant of Venice" to 

School Life. 

Amateur Actors Well Re- 
ceived in Their Annual 
Senior Play. 

"With all the snap and ginger of a 
Cohan conioiiy, the senior play was 
presented ai the high school last even- 
ing. •Tlie Merchant of Venice Up to 
Date" was its title and it was under 
the management and direction of A. 
F. M. CuMance. 

The principals were all excellent and 
there was an individuality abovit the 
work of each which is unusual in an 
amateur production of this kind. 

Tlie play in itself was well worked 
out and the mingling of modern slang 
and the sluttiy language of William 
Shake.«peare produced a cumbination 
which was Irresistibly funny. 

The play opt-ned with a street scene 
In Venice showing a group of football 
heroes s^uiroundtd by a group of high 
school girls giving their football songs 
and yells, under the direction of Ray- 
mond Hancock, yell master. 

Sianlev Lamb a^ the modern Shy- 
lock was probably the most finished 
and was rewarded for his good work 
with peals of laughter and enthusiastic 

George King fitted his part of the 
handsome big football player. Antonio, 
exceptionally well and everyone was 
glad that his wealth of hair was saved 
fr'-m the relentless Shylock. 

Koger Lerch and Lloyd Le Due dis- 
plaved fine ability In their parts of 
Bassanlo and Oratlano and made most 
delightful lovers. 

David Wanless was a general favor- 
ite in his interpretation of xhe part of 
Launcelot Gobbo, the riwedish servant 
and his character work was one of the 
hits of the evening. 

Chelsie Final as Portia and Irene 
"Warden as Xerissa were two charming 
characters, and played their roles w-ith- 
a charminglv natural manner. Miss 
Gladys Lenning played the part of 
Jessica in a pleasing manner and ' Miss 
Lavinla Katchum." the teaclier. was 
acted with ability by Miss Alta Hal- 
lock. Lvdia Woodbrldge as ■'Hulda, 
til© Swedish servant, was dellgliiful. 
and Marv Whij. pie's "Mr-s. Gobbo" and 
Kstelle Goering as Antonio's mother 
were also good characters. 

Edwin Linderberg made a most for- 
midable looking policeman, Howard 
De Vev was funny as the professor 
and Oswald Ring.«rcd was a typical 
darky in his part of "Tubal." Joo 
Boyle was the mighty Duke of \ enlce. 
Some clever little vocal numbers 
were introduced with the solo parts 
sung bv Miss Marion Merrltt, the de- 
mure little lass, Kthel Smith, the 
Swedish maiden, and Alice Farrell, the 
Bowerv girl, who were all good. 

A prettv little feature was Intro- 
duced in the fourth act by eight danc- 
ing girls who did the "Lemon dance. 
These girls were: Florence 
Olson, Ruth Neimeyer, Helen Smith. 
Eleanor Aske. Agnes Carmody, Bessie 
Warren. Luclle Gilbert and Mabel Cum- 

Those who aided Mr. Custance were: 
Stage master. Ben Nelson; as.»lstant, 
Griffith McConaughy; and financial 
manager, Walter Glass. 

The plav will be repeated again this 
evening ai the high scliool auditorium.

Olof G. Olson was re-elected presi- 
dent and R. Murchlson was again 
chosen to fill the position of clerk. 
Mr Olson has been a member or 
the board for many years, being re- 
appointed for another term of three 
years by Mayor Culium a year ago. 

George J. Bloedel. former alder- 
man of the Second ward, la a new 
member of the board. He has an 
extensive knowledge of city affairs 
and there Is but little doubt that he 
will acquit himself most creditably 
in his new position. The oldest mem- 
ber of the board Is A. J. Meldahl, 
who was appointed when R. D. 
Haven was mayor. His term expires 
next March. Mr. Meldhal Is one of 
West Duluth's leading citizens and 
has given general satisfaction during 
the time he has been a member of 
the board. Mr. Murchlson is one of 
the oldest officials in the city hall in 
point of service. He has acted as 
clerk of the board during that time 
and probably has a more Intimate 
knowledge of the business of the 
board and the position and condition 
of the streets, alleys, sidewalks and 
■ewers In the city than any other 
fnfl.n In Duiuth. 

The jail, workhouse and workfarm 
agitation will come in for discussion 
at a meeting of the public affairs com- 
mittee of the Commercial club Tuesday 
evening, It is e.xpected. At the last 
meeting of the committee, a sub-com- 
mittee reported in favor of a work- 
house and rock pile for vagrants and 
bums and a workfarm for drunkards 
and other petty offenders. The club 
as a whole did not go on record at 
that meeting, as Mayor Culium, w-ho 
was unable to be present, had e.\- 
pressed a wish to be heard on the sub- 

At the meeting of the board of 
county commissioners yesterday, a 
committee which had been consider- 
ing the subject reported against the 
workhouse project and recommended 
that the old jail be repaired for tem- 
porary use. The report of the sub- 
committee of the Commercial club is 
ttrbngly against such action and the 
general committee will probably go on 
record Tuesday night. 

The meeting Tuesday night will 
mark the end of the public affair com- 
mittee's year and the annual reports 
will very likely be submitted. Here- 
tofore, the committee has not held Its 
annual meeting until after the annual 
meeting of the club, but it is planned 
in the future to bring the committee's 
vear to an end at the same time the 
club year ends. The members of the 
committee will, however, hold over un- 
til their successors are appointed. 

The annual election of directors of 
the club will take place Wednesday 
and the annual meeting of the club 
will be held Wednesday evening, be- 
ginning at 8 o'clock. It Is expected 
that at that meeting. C. A. Luster 
will again be elected president of th'e 
club, the policy in the past having been 
to elect the president for two con- 
secutive terms. 

The business of the annual meeting 
will be followed by a smoker and en- 
tertainment. A committee is at work 
arranging a program and it Is expected 
a large crowd will be out to celebrate 
the termination of probably the most 
successful year in the club's history. 



Charles E. Adams, appointed spe- 
cial county attorney by the county 
commissioners in session yesterday, 
assumed his duties today. 

He was appointed to fill out the 
unexpired term of William J. Steven- 
son. The resolution went into effect 
today and the term is up July 8. 

Mr. Adams will soon move into 
the offices provided for the special 
county attorney on the third floor of 
the courthouse. Mr. Stevenson was 
moving out today. 

P'rom this time on Mr. Stevenson's 
duties will keep him at St. Paul a 
greater portion of the time. His dti- 
ties for the state began some time 
ago, but he was here yesterday to 
be in attendance at the meeting of 
the county commissioners and today 
for the purpose of appearing for the 
governor in the case brought against 
him by Albert Woolsen. 



given Duiuth people to meet the new 
president of the university and it is 
expected a large number will avail 
themselves of it. It will be the first 
opportunity of Duiuth alumni of the 
university to meet Mr. "Vincent and 
thev are expected to be out to a man. 
Mr. Vincent ha.-? expressed himself as 
realizing that the University of Min- 
nesota Is a state institution, in wnlch 
all parts of the city should be interest- 
ed wiiirh should extend its influence to 
all p.irt.s of the state and which should 
be supported by all parts of the state. 
He will find that Duiuth peoole have a

and that they are ready to give the uni- 
versity and Us officers every support 
an 1 encouragement In their work. 


Fiual Action to Be Taken in Duiuth 
in June. 

Moorhead, Minn., April 8. — A de- 
cision favoring the formation of a 
new conference out of the Minnesota 
conference of the Swedish Lutheran 
church was reached at the session in 
this city. 

It is proposd that the new confer- 
ence be composed of the congrega- 
tions of Northern Minnesota, as far 
south as Willmar, and all of North 
and South Dakota, which is to take 
the place, as far as the congregation 
within these boundries are concerned, 
of the old Minnesota conference. 

A committee was appointed to draft 
a petition which will be brought be- 
fore the Minnesota conference of 
which these congregations now are 
a part. This will be acted upon at a 
meeting and will then be recommend- 
ed to the Augustana synod which 
meets at Duiuth next June. This 
body will take final action.

at Jamestown. 

Jamestown, N. D., April 8. — An im- 
portant meeting of the board of trus- 
tees for the North Dakota state In-i 
sane hospital was held here this 
week, all members of the board be- 
ing present. 

This was the occasion for an an- 
nual election of officers of the insti- 
tution, and the board decided to 
make a change in superintendents, 
relieving Mr. McAllister, who wa* 
elected last year as superintendent, 
and on motion of Trustee Mitchell

the institution on July 1, 

Indianapolis. Ind., April 8. — Three of 
the famous white-bonneted Lozler cars 
which were the marvel of the auto- 
mobile racing season of 1910 have been 
entered in the 500-mlle International 
Sweepstakes race to be held over the 
Indianapolis Motor Speedway track 
Memorial day. May 30. 

At the wheel of the famous cars 
will be Ralph Mulford, national road 
race champion of 1910, and Teddy Telz- 
laff, holder of the American road race 
record and of the American speedway 
100-mlle record, regardless of class. 
This is the first time that these two 
great drivers have been thrown to- 
gether in competition and the outcome 
when they are both at the wheel of 
cars exactly alike will be watched 
with interest by motorists over the 
entire world. » j i^„ 

The third Lozler car is entered by 
Dr W H. Chambers of McKeesport, 
Pa.'., and will be piloted by Harold Van 
Gorder, an Kastern driver who has 
figured more or less prominently In 
minor events. Van Gorder never par- 
ticipated in any of the big events. The 
car which he will drive is a regular 
stock model 46-horse POwer. a duP"" 
cate of the cars driven by Mulford and 
Tetzlaff. This car was recently pur- 
chased by Dr. Chambers, through the 
Lozler agency of l^lttsburg. and while 
Van Gorder will drive as one of the 
Lozler team Dr. Chambers is backing 
him in his racing campaign and the 
ci?^ wUl be entered by him in %^rious 
events during the season. ^ Van Gorder 
has been driving cars 8»nce 1903 Two 
years ago he acted as mechanician for 
Harrison on the Wei gel car in the 
Grand Prize race In France over the

achieved a greater measure of success 
during the time he has been driving 
Uian any driver who has come into 
prominence during the last two or 
three years. He has taken part In 
only three races within the last year, 
winning all three of them He holds 
the American road record, and his re- 
cent victory on the Los Angeles mile 
track when he defeated Ralph De 
Palma and his 90-horse power Fiat 
racer. In a 100-mile match race In the 
phenomenal average time ot si.o^ 
miles per hour. Indicates what may be 
expected of him in the circuit racing. 
Tetzlaff took away the 100-mlle record 
form Ray Harroun, the Marmon pilot, 
who averaged better than seventy-six 
miles per hour at the opening of th& 
Los Angeles motordrome In the spring 
of 1910, In the road race oyer the 
Santa Alonica course in which fetzla.i 
won the road championship, he aver- 
aged 73.2 miles per hour, taking the 
mark from Bruce Brown, who drove 
a Benz at an average speed of sev- 
enty-one miles an hour in the Grand 
prize at Savannah In 1910. Louis 
Chevrolet held the record previous 
to Bruce Brown, making 69.7 miles per 
hour driving a Buick In the 1909 Rlv- 
erhead road race. Ralph Mulford 
gained a national reputation when he 
drove a Lozler to victory in the Elgm 
road race at Elgin last August. 

Announcement has been made by the 
Lozler Motor company that Lozler 
cars will compete in all the national 
circuit events of the season.

Rubber May Take Leap at 

Almost Any Time, 

Claim Agents. 

At the present time automobile tires 
of every make are about 30 per cent 
cheaper than they were a year ago. 

As the tires are the most costly part 
of the running expenses of a car, this 
is a big saving. 

The present low price is not to last 
if the statements made by agents are 
true. They state without exception 
tires win soon go up In price. 

The companies are said to be behind 
in their orders and as tne demand is 
getting heavier as spring opens up, 
the price may be advanced. The price 
of crude rubber is also expected to 
take a leap at any time and the local 
agents are advising those who will 
need tires to purchase them while the 
price is down. 


Local Auto Agents Want Out- 
side Firms to Pay Wheel-

.Local automobile dealers are asking 
that outside firms which send demon-

It is claimed that outside firms send 
men and demonstrators here, use the 
streets to demonstrate their cars and 
take some trade away from the locals 
without paying for the use of the 

streets. ... ^ ,j 

One firm claims that the outside 
firms have no money invested in Du-

eault, who recently eloped to a point 
in New York and were brought back on 
a warrant sworn out by the girls 
father, by a deputy sheriff, were mar- 
ried this afternoon. 

O'Clalr was charged with abduction. 
The girl was said to have been under 
age. OClalr stated that his intentions 
were honorable, and they were at his 
home in New York state when appre- 
hended and brought back to Duiuth. 

Since they were brought baok. OClalr 
has been at the St. Louis county jail. 
Miss Arseneault has been devoting her 
time to getting him out. 

The parents, it is said, have agreed 
to the marriage, and the charge of ab- 
duction against him will be dropped by 
the court, at the suggestion of the 
county attorney. 

Nearly every day this week Miss 
Arseneault has either visited In per- 
son or telephoned the county attor- 
neys office In her anxiety to get O'Clalr 

""she is said tn have stated that the 
only reason they were not married be- 
fore setting out on life s journey to-

The proposed lodglni: house or- 
dinance will probably be introduced at 
the council meeting Monday night. It 
was turned over to the committee on 
ordinances and resolutions, of which 
Alderman Wharton is chairman, last 
Monday night, but It was not intro- 
duced as the members of the committee 
desired an opportunity to read it care- 

After it had been introduced the or- 
dinance will be referred back to the 
same committee for consideration and 
a report. Considerable opposition has 
arisen to the ordinance in its present 
form, and it is likely tlu.t the commit- 
tee will set a date for i public hear- 
ing befort it is submitted to the alder- 
men for final passage. ♦>,„,.. 
Investigation has shown that there 
is a great need for an ordinance reg- 
ulating lodging house conditions In 
Duiuth. Men are crowled into these 
places like cattle, without proper air. 
light or ventilation. liven adequate 
facilities for washing 'hemselves are 
lacking in most of them. The bedding^ 
in many instances, is vi e. while many 
of the beds themselves are or wood, 
affording a prolific plaoe for vermin. 
In numerous places are found the so- 
called "double-deckers," which consist 
of one bunk placed on i op of another. 
The toilet facilities In all of them are 
Inadeauate. and It Is not uncommon for 
the toilet to be located off the kitchen 
or dining room with the common wash- 
ing sink m the same place. 

The ordinance is sflngent in its 
provisions for cleanllri«;ss and meas- 
ures tending toward th< benefit of the 
public health. It also makes the in- 
stallation of sanitary drinking foun- 
tains on each floor mandatory, which 
is a new departure la the lodging 
house ordinances of other cities. It 
is likely that when the ordinance 
comes from the committee the second 
time some changes y'lll be recom- 
mended, and that It will not be passed 
in Its present form. The ordinance 
will not go into effecl, according to 
revisions, until next October.

Minnesota docs not want to become a breeder of 
criminals, or haters of the law and the government. 
The men who are chosen to look after the penal in- 
stitutions have it in their power to safeguard her in 
this respect. It is their duty to exercise that power. 
It would be well, perhaps, considering the develop- 
ments that were found in the boys' school at Red 
Wing, to take a look at some of the other state in- 
stitutions. Not that there is suspicion of wrong at 
any of them, but on the general principle that neg- 
lect of the Red Wing school for boys may have 
been accompanied by neglect of some of these other 
institutions too. But whether this is done or not, 
the Red Wing matter should be a warning to fu- 
ture boards of control and boards of \'teitors as to 
what may happen if they are remiss in their duties. 
The affair is too deep a disgrace to the state to be 
allowed to repeat itself. *. 


One of the pet schemes of President Taft in 
his program of national reforms is the simplifi- unnamed person reads into the admitted circuni 
cation and expediting of legal procedure, and in stances. 

Democrats and now Republicans, but never any 
good; the vice-protecting police, the 'fixed' juries, 
the bungling legislation, the weak administration, 
the stinking corruption turned up all over the land 
from Atlantic to Pacific, wherever one strikes in 
the pick of investigation. Do you suppose the peo- 
ple would choose such governors if they did not 
like them? A representative government must fair- 
ly represent the mind and morals of the average 
citizen; a mind too small for the large affairs of 
the community, and morals too easy for its health- 
ful control. The fountain cannot rise higher than 
its source." 

That is not exactly a pleasing or a pretty con- 
ception of the minds and morals of the inhabitants 
of the "land of the free and the home of the brave." 
At first blush it would seem to have been dictated 
by a generous dinner of hot biscuits and warm 
pastry. Even though one may feel forced to admit 
that there is some truth in some of the statements 
of fact, such as the assertions that grafters are 
elected to office and that their kind are not con- 
fined to any particular political camp, there cannot 
be truth in the interpretation of motives which this

The teachers, to be sure, do not get all they 
might ask, under the action of the board of educa- 
tion, but they do get something. The answer of 
the board to the plea for a bigger increase in sal- 
aries is that the city hasn't the money to give the 
bigger increase, and that answer is a bar, at least 
for the present, to any further claims. The teach- 
ers are to be congratulated on what they have 
gained. It is to be hoped that they may see the 
fulfiilment of the hope held out to them of another 
increase in another year. 

The Herald is not in sympathy with the opposi- 
tion to increasing the teachers' pay that is based 
on the claim that they do not spend as much time 
in preparation for their profession or as many 
hturs a day at work as some other people. The 
efficient teacher — and that is the kind we want in 
Duluth — is as much a possessor of certain natural 
qualifications as is the efficient business man, yet 
we never hear it said that a man is entitled to less 
money because he has natural ability than he 
would be if he were wholly a product of training. 
The teacher must spend three or four years in pre- 
paration, at least, and that is as much as is re- 
quired of the lawyer, and very nearly as much as is 
demanded of the doctor. Then there are the 
necessities for unending study of methods, for con- 
temporaneous reading, etc., that the teacher must 
meet. And anybody who thinks that the teacher's 
work begins when school opens and ends when the 
pupils are dismissed shows lamentable ignorance of 
the task that devolves upon those who teach the 
young idea how to shoot. 

The paying of living wages to teachers is not 
a mere matter of sentiment, though their work is 
so important that it is hard to consider it entirely 
apart from the sentimental viewpoint. But there 
is nothing of sentiment, however much it may 
sound like that, in the fact that it is the teachers 
who determine, in a large degree, the trend of 
thought of every man and woman in the country, 
for the teacher's influence is felt during the for- 
mation of character, and it lasts as long as the 
lives of the pupils. This being true, it is essential 
that we have the best teachers in order that our 
children may have the best training and the best 
character. And the best teachers are not the cheap- 
est, by a good deal. 

Duluth's future does not depend entirely on the 
steel plant, or on the agricultural development of 
the surrounding country, or on the size of the busi- 
ness blocks, or on the character of the pavements 
or on the form of government. It depends, more 
even than on these, on the kind of citizens who 
make their home here. When we hire good teach- 
ers we build a good future for our city as well as 
for our boys and girls. When we hire a cheap 
grade of teachers we rob the city and the children 
alike. The present step is good, but it is only a 
step. We should not be willing to rest content 
with this. There are more steps to be taken, and 
when the time comes to take them Duluth should 
be ready to make the advance. 

that he has the hearty support of the American pub- 
lic. Not that litigation should be made easier than 
is necessary. There are too many legal actions, 
even with the difficulties and discouragements that 
beset the path of the man or woman who courts 
the courts in the hope of getting justice or relief. 
! But there are instances in which relief ought to be 
I granted, and in which it can be obtained, under our 
; system of government, only by application to some 
judicial tribunal, and yet in which there are so 
many delays, for one reason or another, with the 
cver-rccurring items of expense, that the result is 
in fact little if anything short of absolute injustice. 

On the same day, recently, the following three 
items appeared in the Associated Press dispatches 
throughout the country: 

Washington, D. C. — Twenty years on the 
wav, the suit of Mary Scott Woods and others 
at^alnst A M. Chesborough and others in Mar- 
lon oountv. Mississippi, today reached the su- 
preme court of the United States. In 1891 a 
suit was brought In Marion county courts to 
determine the title to several parcels of land. 
It will be two or three years before the su- 
preme court will reach the case on its docket. 

Kansas City. Mo. — The trial of John J. 
Pryor. the North Side saloonkeeper and politi- 
cal heeler, for the murder of James Morton 
nearly five years ago. has been postponed 

Kansas Citv, Kan. — Miss Katie Scalaplno. 21 
. years old, died at her home at Twenty-eighth 
street and Barnet avenue, in Kan.'fas City, 
Kan., late Saturday night from injuries re- 
ceived in 1907 when an explosion of dynamite 
in the Outer Belt railway cut ntar her home 
hurled her from her bed against a stove. Miss 
Scalaplno was a daughter of Angelo Sealapino, 
a laborer. She was awarded judgment for 
15.000 In the circuit court against the L. J. 
Smith company which had the grading con- 
tract. The judgment wa* affirmed by the 
Kansas City court of appeals March 6. and an 
appeal was denied today, but Miss Scalaplno 
did not live to receive the benefit of any of the 

There are three instances in one day's news re- 
ports. The newspapers of the country furnish al- 
most daily items of similar instances. There is 
neither reason nor justice in such a state of affairs. 
The people realize this, and so do some of the 
courts, which are refusing to consider technical 
hair-splitting as a fair means of obtaining true de- 

One often-cited evidence of this fact is con- 
tained in his own statement, for he admits that 
such methods as these are followed by investiga- 
tions. If the American people were content to let 
things go on in that way they would not bother 
about investigating anybody. Neither, if the people 
as a whole, if the average citizen, were steeped in 
and content with the spirit of graft and dishon- 
esty, would the recurring discoveries of graft and 
corruption cause the stir they do throughout the 
country. Dishonesty never is shocked by dishon- 

It possibly is true that, to some extent, the aver- 
age citizen "has an eye to the main chance." But 
it is not true that he is ready to practice or con- 
done dishonesty, either in private or public affairs. 
If that were the case no "reformer" would have 
even the slightest chance of success. Yet, see how 
strong a fight that element can and does make, and 
how often the man who makes honesty his war-cry 
is given popular support and public trust. 

Perhaps this "veteran," being concerned in pub- 
lic service operations, was given opportunity to 
see only that darker side of American political life. 
It is to his class that the grafter makes his first and 
most often repeated appeal. Certainly he got but a 
distorted view of the "average citizen." If he 
doubts it, he might try running for some public of- 
fice on a platform of graft and dishonesty, and see 
where he gets off at. 

To the Editor of The Herald: 

I note that the county board has 
decided that the workhouse Is too ex- 
pensive. The expenditure of about a 
•luarler of a million dollars for a new 
jail Is preferable to the expenditure 
of a few thousands for a workhouse 
cr a work farm, I presume. 

I would like to see the suggestion 
that a workfarm be established adopt- 
ed. Cooping men up in jail doesn't 
do them any good. The whole penal 
system of this country is wrong and 
if the counties and municipalities doa t 
start to correct it, the states will cer- 
tainly not begin to act. The people 
should rise up and assert that they 
don't want their money spent to bulKl 
a palatial jail for the housing of vag- 
rants and drunkards. Let the unfor- 
tunate men have the benefit of the 
open air and good hard work that will 
make them understand that there is 
something in life besides loafing and 
living at the expense of society.

There is nothing surprising in the report of the 
legislative committee that was appointed to in- 
vestigate the conditions existing in the boys' re- 
formatory at Red Wing. As the evidence given be- 
fore the committee was published from day to day 
it would have been impossible for the committee to 
have ignored some of the salient features of it, and 
by no other means could they have arrived at a 
conclusion other than that announced in their re- 
port. It is true that some of the boys sent to the 
reformatory must be dealt with severely. But that 
does not mean that all the inmates are to be treated 
as mediaeval prisoners might have been by cruel 
jailers. The general application of such measures 
as were shown to exist at the school is, further- 
more, incompatible with the recognized methods of 
handling even hardened criminals, and these boys 
are sent to this school instead of the prison because 
they are not hardened criminals, but merely youths 
who may yet be brought to live honorably. 

But there is another feature to the Red Wing 
matter that is not included in the report, though it 
would have been eminently fitting to have included 
it. That is, the extent to which the state boards that 
have supervision of such institutions were respon- 
sible for the conditions at Red Wing. These men 
are chosen to look after the interests of the unfor- 
tunates who are sent to the schools, as well as the 
management of the finances and other features of 
those institutions. If abuses of the system are al- 
lowed to grow and continue, it is these boards that 
ought to be held responsible. They are given the 
necessary power and authority to keep informed on 


Within the last year or two there have been a 
number of instances in which public buildings or 
private structures of one kind and another have 
been damaged by explosions of dynamite. There 
has been evidence in many of these cases that 
showed conclusively that the explosion was due to 
the deliberate work of some individual or indivi- 
duals. Yet it is rarely that anybody is brought to 
justice for such an action. 

It seems strange to the onlooker that this should 
be the case. Dynamite is stuff that cannot be 
handled effectively by anybody who happens to 
pick it up. There must be 'knowledge of how it 
exerts its destructive power, and of how to place it 
and set it off. Neither is it a commodity that is to 
be found lying around loose in any community. 
And again, it is a substance of which the average 
man stands in wholesome fear. Therefore the one 
who uses it for any purpose must be accustomed to 
its use, or must have had means of becoming well 
informed as to its adaptation and properties. All 
these things would seem to operate to make the 
tracing of the source of the explosions much more 
simple than is the case in the more ordinary crime 
of burglary or even of murder. 

Another element that enters into dynamiting 
cases is the havoc wrought by such explosions. 
Assuredly the number of persons who would desire 
to wreck a building or a bridge, even though there 
might be no peril to human life in the act, must be 
limited. What motive could exist for such an act? 
Here again the field is so limited that it would 
seem as if it should be a comparatively easy mat- 
ter to trace the responsibility. 

It is often asserted that there should be more 
severe punishment meted out to men who engage in 
such an enterprise. Even that the example of 
Pennsylvania and other states in regard to attempts 
at wrecking trains, which in those commonwealths 
is punishable by death, should be followed in cases 
of dynamiting. But there is little object in this, un- 
less one can first catch the dynamiter. A severe 
penalty has no terrors when a man can easily escape 
it entirely. 

There is something queer, something almost un- 
canny in this frequent escape to safety of the guilty 
parties in dynamiting outrages. Whatever the 
cause, it will be a matter for congratulation when 
some official finds a means of running down the 
culprits and bringing them to justice. With the in- 
creasing frequency of such acts noted in the last 
year or two, such a means cannot be found any 
too soon. 


In an article in the current number of The Out- 
look, entitled "Is Democracy a Failure?" C. Nor- 
man Fay quotes a "veteran" public service man of

"The American people like grafters; they are all 
grafters themselves at heart, essentially dishonest, 
lazy and careless of their civic duties. Look at the 
shifting hordes of cheap politicians that they send 
year after year to the legislature, the city councils, 
even to congress, always changing but always 
grafting; the idle, incompetent and dishonest em- 
ployes, drawing double pay for half work, now 


Go into any drygoods store in town and stand 
a few minutes, and its ten to one you will hear 
some woman say: "I wonder how that piece would 
go Avith my tan suit," or words of similar import. 
Go into a cigar store or other place where men are 
given to standing around and talking and you will 
hear somebody say: "1 wonder who's going to get 
the pennant this year." Stand behind the chair of 
a school boy as he wrestles with a problem in 
mathematics, and after awhile you will hear him 
mutter: "I wonder if that's right." And if you 
could read the mind of the business man as he sits 
at his desk or walks the floor while considering his 
business and his methods, you would find there 
time and again the thought: "I wonder how that 
would turn out." 

This wonder business is the most active occu- 
pation of mankind. The employer wonders whether 
he could save expenses; the employe wonders when 
he is to get a taise, the housewife wonders where 
the children are and what they are up to; the 
teacher wonders if the day is as long as it feels; 
the tired man wonders if he'll wake up in time and 
the wakeful man wonders if morning will ever 
come; the millionaire wonders if his dinner will 
agree with him and the tramp wonders where he's 
going to get his next meal; the baby wonders why 
mother or father or nurse is so cross, and the 
parent wonders what his children will be like when 
they grow up. And so on, ad infinitum, multum 
in parvo, fortissimo, pianissimo, generalissimo, 
chile con carne and all the rest. 

And once in awhile somebody pops up and says 
in a meditative tone: "I wonder what it's all about,* 
anyway." And immediately there is a babble of 
voices, some repeating his question, some trying 
to answer it, some laughing at it, some sneering 
at it — until finally the tumult and the shouting 
dies and the old game goes on again the same as 

It seems as if old Omar hit the nearest to the 
truth of any of^them when he wrote that about be- 
ing "hither hurried, whence," and "whither hurried 
hence." But Omar missed out on the biggest fea- 
ture of all, and so do most of the other questioners. 
To put it in their favorite form, one might say: 
"I wonder why it is that when a man spends his 
time and his effort in doing his level best at what- 
ever line of work he is in, at helping others when 
he gets a chance, or making a chance when none 
comes of itself, when he thinks cheerful thoughts 
and does only the things that are upright and 
honorable — I wonder why it is that his life seems 
worth living no matter how much of a fizzle other 
people's lives seem to be." 

Now that is kind of queer, when you come to 
think of it. All around us we see things going as 
we are sure they shouldn't go; we see mean men 
prospering financially, and we see petty dishonesty 
and sometimes dishonesty that isn't petty, ap- 
parently thriving. We see others honoring men 
whom we despise and believe we have good reason 
for despising. And we see a lot of other things 
that are enough to upset faith in human nature. 
And yet, it's true that those cheerful, steady, hon- 
orable people seem to have the best of it. 

It all sort of makes one wonder if the reason, 
if we could only see it clearly, isn't that we're here, 
not just "because," but for some kind of develop- 
ment that is best accomplished by right living and 
kindliness and thought for the welfare of others. 
Everything we see develops. It seems to be a law 
of nature. Well, we are a part of nature, and so 
it is reasonable to suppose that we are intended to 
develop, too. And somehow, the only kind of de- 
velopment that seems to amount to anything is 
that that comes with honor and cheerfulness and 
all that. So maybe there isn't anything so full of 
wonder in our being here and being as we are, after 
all. Anyway, one can't help wondering, sometimes, 
if that isn't the truth of the matter. 

which may be found in a poultry book. 
Its mother may be a fussy, quarrelsome 
old hen, who may never have attended 
a mothers' meeting and knows no 
more about raising chickens than some 
people who expect to make a fortune 
at It. In brooding the llock she may 
leave some little fellow outside the 
embrace of her maternal wings, and 
death claims it as his own. The chick 
must keep a wary eye on cats and 
hawks. and be on constant guard 
against the weasel and the rat. The 
chick has troubles of its own. 

It should not be compelled to ex- 
hibit Itself in a show window at the 
happiest season of the year. It is 
cruel to have it pecking around a win- 
dow, deluded by some electric light 
Into the belief that the noon sun Is 
shining. The chicken is a domestic 
bird and it is not its habit to keep 
late hours. It not only believes In the 
old saw. "Early to bed and early to 
rise," but If given the chance will 
practice the belief. Exhibition chicks, 
that is, Easter show-window chicks, 
nearly always die young. They can- 
not stand the pace of night life in a 
great city. 

In Philadelphia officers of the So- 
ciety for the Prevention of Cruelty to 
Animals have sent warnings to those 
dealers who sell live chicks during 
the Easter holidays. It is a cruel 
business. Few rag dolls, china dolls 
or Teddy bears long survive as play- 
things for a child, and a little chicken 
soon turns up Its toes. The Phila- 
delphia S. P. C. A. will appeal to the 
public not to buy Easter chicks, and 
will make a test case in the matter 
of any man caught selling them. A 
New York court two years ago con- 
victed a man of cruelty to animals 
who sold newly hatched chicks for 
Easter toys and favors. 

ParcelH Poat ArKiiment. 

Buffalo Journal: Among the argu- 
ments for a parcels post no one has 
yet suggested that there would be a 
great gain in promptness in delivery 
of packages. The chief reason for

press service Is to save time in de- 
livery over freight, but expres.s moves 
very slowly. A letter travels froni 
Buffalo to Detroit. Mich., in about 
thirty hours, by express It takes seven

the freight and express is in the price.

A Mouae Bullied a Coek. 

New York Herald: One of the clowns 
with the Barnum & Bailey circus, now 
playing In MadLson Square Garden, ha.s 
for a pet a bantam rooster which will 
fight anything from an aunt to a loco- 
motive, but when it comes to battling 
with a mouse he scratches and lies 
down for the full count -of the referee. 

Mr. Bantam was sleeping calmly In 
the cage with the baby giraffe in the 
menagerie yesterday afternoon when a 
mouse came nibbling around the 
cracked corn which the rooster had 
laid away for a rainy day. The gaze 
of the mouse and rooster met and the 
rooster took to the bars of the cage, 
but they were slippery and would not 
hold him. but not deeming himself lar 
enough away from the mouse he took 
a few hops and alighted on the baby 
giraffe's head, where he perched with 
the air of a war strategrlst. 

The mouse seemed to enjoy the per- 
formance and went on nibbling the 
corn, while the baby giraffe seemed 
possessed of the notion that she had 
received a new Chantecler bonnet for 
Easter and wore it proudly. 


A PHnce Who Can Dance. 

Boston Herald: Prince George of 
Servia Is an Intrepid dancer. It seems 
that etiquette forbids the cessation of 
a dance while his royal highness is on 
the floor. Recently the prince outdid 
himself. "The dance went on until the 
majority of the dancers presented a 
lamentable sight," according to tlie re- 
port of a foreign correspondent. Half 
fainting, they ran after the prince re- 
eardless of step or time, and oblivious 
Sf all but the risk of being trampled 
on or dashed against the wall." The 
prince ignored timid remonstrances. 
He shouted to his friends: "Never give 
In! Show your mettle!" He ordered 
the orchestra to double the time. At 
last the conductor feigned sickness 
and the music stopped. "Next day 
many of the guests were confined to 
bed," too exhausted, even, to partake 
of food. Prince George went for a ride 
on a spirited animal, and complained to 
a comrade of the little opportunity for 
adequate exercise to be found in Bel-

Decline of Anatrallan Rabbit Induatrjr. 
The Lancet: The rabbit industry in 
Victoria is stated to be slowly but 
surely disappearing. The first export 
of frozen rabbits was made in 1894. in 
which year 14,928 rabbits were sent to 
England. Next year the total was 431,- 
716. In 1900 the total was 5,678,224. 
and In 1905, 10,258,356. Since that year 
the total has gradually declined till last 
year It had come down to 2,841,648- rab. 
bits exported. Exporters and agricul- 
turists alike are pleased at this result. 
The former have all their available 
freezing plants occupied with meat and 
butter and cheese, while the latter view 
the gradual extinction of the rabbit pest 
with composure. 

An Indiana Rendering. 

Valparaiso Messenger: Abble Mae 
Harding rendered a solo Sunday at the 
church which was very affectionate. 

Milwaukee News: A subscriber at 
Clinton, Wis., has asked the Daily News 
why Ea.ster falls on April 16 thl.s year, 
ifaster 's a movable feast closely as- 
sociated with the Jewish Pa.ssover. 
which accounts for the likenl-ng of 
Christ to the Paschal lamb. Hence 
for the first centuries of the Christian 
church the resurrection vras* celebrated 
at the close of the Jevish Passover 
season. . . ._ .,. 

The Christians, having chosen to ne- 
gln their week on the da> of the resur- 
rection, following the word.s of St. 
John, -on the first day of the w-eek 
came Mary Magdalene and the other 
disciple whom Jesus loved, to the sepul- 
chre," leaders In the church came to 
the belief that Easter should fall on 
a Sunday, regardless of the day of the 
month. Instead of on th i closlrig da> 
of the Passover, regardless of the day 
of the week. This decision was not 
followed uniformly, and for seventeen 
centuries there were differences of date 
for this feast day, and e^en today the 
Greek church observes a vUfferent date 
from that observed by the Roman and 
Protestant churches. • 

After several centuries of discussion 
and several changes in the arrange- 
ment of the calendar, the Roman and 
Protestant churches, A. p. l<aU, 
adopted the present rule for determin- 
ing the date of Easter. Now Easter 
fall.«i on the Sunday next following the 
fourteenth day of the Pjwschal or ver- 
nal moon, which Is the fiist moon after 
the vernal equinox, whieii Is March -'l. 
In fact the calendar moon Is not the 
real moon, but takes Its t'ate about two 
davs in advance of the real moon. 

Bv this rule Easter cannot come 
earlier than March 22, or later than 
April 25. This year the first moon a-ter 
the vernal equinox is new on March 
30, reaches its fourteenth day or Is ful' 
on April 13, which is Thursday— Tues- 
day when corrected to t!ie date of the 
religious calendar moon--hence Easter 
Is on the Sunday f ollo\\ ing, which is 
April 16 

In this connection it \h Interesting to 
note that although Easter cele»)rates 
the event on which Christianity is 
founded, its name, like the names of 
most of the Anglo-Saxon or Teutonic 
religious festivals, is taken from the 
old Teutonic mythology ind Is derived 
from Eostre or Ostara, ore of the Norse 
goddesses of spring. , ,. c 

This correspondent als> asks ii ssun- 
days are included in Lent. No. Sunday, 
the "first dav of the week," made the 
Christian holv day on account of the 
resurrection taking place on the first 
dav of the week, is always a feast and 
so is not included in the forty days.

The speaker was a buxom, grenlal 
women, who looked as If she might 
have just come from a meeting of the 
Women's Christian Temperance union 
and be on her way to a gathering of 
the sewing society, to be followed later 
In the day by a church supper for 
which, as chairman of the committee, 
she was carrying a special responsibil- 
ity. Meanwhile one pictured her hus- 
band as hungering for a little more of 
the old-time sociability around the fire- 
side in the days before the wife had 
her fingers In so many pies. 

This was a country woman. Her city 
sister is another type of the restless, 
ubiquitous woman of the period. Her 
activities may be quite outside or 
church circles and include a round of 
social gaieties, the participation in a 
number of clubs with perhaps just a 
dash of philanthropic work to salve 
her conscience. Possibly her husband, 
too, grows hungry for her companion- 
ship, and maybe the children see more 
of their nurses than they do of the one 
who bore them, reminding us of the 
famous cartoon of a small boy crj'ing 
on the doorsteps of his own home, 
who, when asked why he didn't go in, 
said: "The door Is locked. Nobody is 
at home. Ma is at a mothers' meet- 

But this mania for going somewhere 
is not confined to one sex. It is char- 
acteristic of our stirring, progressive 
times when the majority of people 
have more engagements tlian they can 
profitably meet, when they filt from 
one entertainment to another, when 
they are hardly through any one tiiins 
before they say, "What next?" 

And we have to confess frankly that people like it. They may read 
approvingly books on the simple life, 
but they would perfer to have their 
neighbors practice it. They have no 
desire to live in some remote hamlet, 
away from the telephone and the trol- 
ley car. They say that life is much 
richer and more interesting wlien one 
is doing something or going some- 

And it must be admitted that it is 
idle to expect a general return to the 
simplicity and quii-tness of earlier days 
In the life of this great republic. We 
hae not multiplied our sources of en- 
joyment simply to abandon them all 
or to stigmatize them as harmful. 
Nevertheless, to be carried away by 
the tendency of our age. to be caught 
in the swirl of many activities is to 
lose one's individuality, one's power of, ana ultimately one's best self. 
Always on the go, but what are we 
going to do when we get to the end 
of the road? The limited will tak« 
you from one great city to another 
in a good deal less time tlian the 
slower trains re<iulre, but the main 
question is not how long it takes you 
to get to a place, but what you are 
going to do when you get there. Shall 
you employ the time saved in worthy 
and useful ways? This "going to 
things" is but an Incident, a method, 
a mere procedure. The main thing la 
the goal. To go to things .simply be- 
cause others are going and you don't 
want to lose anything others may be 
getting, to go to things simply to 
ke^p moving is to abrogate the func- 
tions of choice, of nice discernment 
between what is worth while and what 
Is trivial. Peoi)le who "go to things" 
ought to learn to discriminate between 
the bad and the good, and between 
the b-'tter and the best. 

When "going to things" destroys our 
relish for a quiet time at home with 
the children or with the husband or 
wife or with the grandparents or with 
some old friend, then beware. Mr. 
Fletcher, the exi)ert on mastication, 
says that when a man ceases to en- 
joy a slice of bread, when his palate 
calls constantly for hlgly s»:asoned 
viands, something is the matter with 
his digestion or is going to be the 
matter with it ere long. When you 
have exhausted the ability of a good 
book, of a quiet hour of meditation, 
of a service in church, or a walk 
alone or with a cnoice companion 
through lovely woods to yield you 
real enjoyment, something is the mat- 
ter with your mental and moral state, 
you are acquiring intellectual dy.=;pep- 
sia and your moral fiber is becoming 

Everyone disposed to periodic at- 
tacks of this modern spirit of restless- 
ness needs to be anchored to things 
that are never In influx.

Tho report of the meeting 
New Vork Sun continues as follows: 

•Mr Rhodes, a historian, read a 
brief summary of Butler's war record 
In which he gave It as his opinion that 
as a general Butler was Incompetent. 
•Butler used his position as Ji^ajijr- 
Kenf^ral to feather his own nest. He 
charged that during his occupation ol 
New Orleans he allowed his brother 
to carry on a trade of great profit In 
cotton and salt between the 
and the South. 'In 1862. 
went to New Orleans, 
$160,000. In l^^^JS he

'•Mr. Rhodes said that he had brouarht 
out these facts at the hearing nine

less refut4d he would include them in 
the forthcoming volume of his hlstor>. 
No refutation has ever been received.

to be

the emergency, lie knew that ir uo 
asked to open the case it would be

vens, had their minds centered on 
summing up. About forty-eight hours 
before the trial began, at a meeting 
of the managers. Butler, as if it had 
just occurred to him, asked: "Look 
here, who's going to open the case on 
the part of the managers.'" There was 
consternation in the faces of all or 
them, and none answered. Then old 
Ben. In an injured tone and with a dis- 
gusted air, remarked like this: "Very 
well. I see that I was put on this board 
to do all the drudgery while you fel- 
lows get all the glory. But somebody 
must do it, and as we are greatly 
pressed for time. I'll now set about the 
preparation." They all pressed around 
him to thank him and express their 
gratitude, though he was stealing all 
the thunder lliere was In the case. 
One of the things for which they Im- 
peached the president was bad man- 
ners. William M. Evarts. chief coun- 
sel for the president. and another 
grandson of that same Roger Sherman 
who was grandfather to the Hoars, 
undertook to show the senate what 
was the standard of good manners 
set up by two of the managers of the 
impeachment — Bingham and Butler — 
whereuopn he read from the Congres- 
sional Globe passages from a debate 
In the house of representatives be- 
tween these two distinguished disciples 
of Turveydrop. In whch Butler accused 
Bingham of the murder of an Innocent 
woman — Mrs. Surratt — and Bingham 
retorted that the tongue of a man like 
Butler, who lived in a bottle and was 
fed on a spoon, could utter no slander. 
The matter under discussion was Char- 
Itv. too. that Is kind. 

• • • 

Some vears before Butler's death 
John S. Wise and he were associated 

as counsel In important litigation be- 
fore the supreme court, and on the 
eve of the argument they met at a 
hotel in Washington and held a con- 
sultation that extended far into the 
night. After they had thoroughly re- 
viewed the case from every stand- 
point and fixed on a line of presenting 
It to the bench the papers were 
bundled up and they fell Into social 
chat. After a while Butler, with some 
animation, said: 

"By the way. Wise. I have at my 
home a very handsome vase, a fine 
work of art, that was presented to 
your father, according to the inscrip- 
tion it bears, but how It ever got into 
my possession Is an Insoluble mystery.' 

"No mystery at all!" roared Wise, 
"my father's mansion was over In 
Accomac county, near Fortress Mon- 
roe, and you stole it while you were 
in command down there." 

Butler burst into a hearty laugh and 
.said: "Perhaps you are right; but at 
any rate I shall make complete resti- 
tution by returning it to you," which 
he did upon his return home. 
* * • 

After eight years in congress Butler 
was defeated for re-election in 1874 
and It Is simple truth to say that the 
election of no man to the presidency of 
the United States occasioned such Joy 
to his supporters as that defeat of 
Butler to the Democrats, North and 
South. His successful competitor was 
a man named Thomsposn. ••with a p." 
who was a most thoroughly advertised 
man the winter of 1874-75. 

In the five-minute debates Butler had 
not his match in congress the ten years 
he was a member, for he was again 
elected In 1876. The scorpion lash of 
John Young Brown, was but an epi- 
sode, as was the terrific excoriation by 
John Mitchell, the Irish patriot, clos- 
ing with "beast, bruit, devil!" But In 
the discus.<^lon of a public measure ,ln a 
running debate on the floor Butler 'was 
the first man In congress as long as 
he was a member. If Stevens had not 
become superannuated before Butler 
appeared, or If Ben Hill had not been 
transferred to the senate upon the 
very date of Butler's re-entry Into the 
house, a different story might be 
told. But Hill was partial to a set 
speech, Butler to a running; debate. 
« • « 

There was a man In Kentucky, who, 
in running debate, was a match for 
Butler or anybody else — Humphrey 
Marshall. He had served in congress 
before the war and was a candidate 
fo rthe Democratic nomination for the 
Forty-first congress in 1868. His suc- 
cessful competitor was young, elo- 
quent, brilliant. While they were can- 
vassing, the hot month of August. 1868, 
the late Senator Lindsay met old Hum- 
phrey on the streets of Louisville and 
asked him how he was getting on dis- 
cussing Issues with the young man. 

"Discussing H !" exclaimed the 

old fellow, who was less than six feet 
and weighed 400. "Discu.sslngl Old as 
I am, I would sooner undertake to hem 
a sparrow in the corner of a rail-worm 
fence than to try to bring that young 
man to a discussion!" And off the old 
fellow went, mopping his brow. 

If Humphrey Marshall had had the 
exalted character of Joseph R. Under- 
wood, or Simon Bolliver Buckner, or 
John C. Breckinridge, there is no tell- 
ing to what eminence he might have 
attained. As lawyer or debater he 
never met his master. 

• • * 
He was an inveterate gambler, and 

this story is told of him. When he 
was a member of congress some three 
score years ago, one day In the early 
afternoon he entered the famous Pen- 
dleton's place, which was deserted by 
patrons because of the early hour. 
Sitting down at faro, Marshall prompt- 
ly lost every dollar he had; but so 
great was his passion for the game 
that he asked Pendleton to give him a 
"stack" and allow him to play for 
fun. Then fickle fortune turned and 
he won nearly every bet laid. Bye-and- 
bye Ed Marshall, a kinsman. Jim Jack- 
son, and some other sports came In 
and they proceeded to lose all they 
had. Seeing stacks of chips before 
Humphrey, they reminded him of sums 
and passed them over. Fortune still 
inclined against the bank, which, after 
losing some thousands, declared itself 
"broke" and the game clo.sed with 
everybody's pockets full except Hum- 
phrey's, who did not cash in. as he was 
plavlng for fun, though the others 
were in dense Ignorance of the fact. 
Pendleton enjoyed the affair Im- 
mensely. Perhaps he knew he would 
recoup it ere the week's end.

Upon his return to Massachusetts 
after the war, Butler was chosen a 
member of the Fortieth congress from a 
district of which he was not a resident. 
That was In 1866. and Immediately 
after the elec,tlon he bought a set of 
the Waverly novels, whch he read 
from lid to lid, while Impatiently wait-

firoceedlng, but Thad Stevens forced

made one of the managers. In his 
Jaook Butler tells how he knew the im- 
j>eachment was coming and how he 
read the English state trials to be 
prepared for It. so far as the law was 
concerned. "With much glee he re-

A Chicago publisher, W. D. Boyce, 
was lost while wandering about in the 
streets of London. After some be- 
wilderment, a youth came up, saluted, 
and asked if he might direct him. Mr. 
Boyce cheerfully acepted the service. 
After being helped to his destination, 
he tried to reward him but the boy 
promptly saluted and said 'No sir! I 
am a Boy Scout and boy scouts never 
accept tips." Mr. Boyce asked further 
Information and was directed to the 
office of Gen. Baden-Powell, who is the 
leader of the Boy Scouts in Great Brit- 
ain. . 

Upon reaching New York, he gath- 
ered together a group of men and 
placed at their disposal $1,000 a month 
for four months to take the prelimi- 
nary steps for the organizing of the 
Boy Scouts in the United States which 
is how the movement was brought to 
this country. 

Geographically speaking the scope 
of the Boy Scouts of America is as ex- 
tensive as the territory of the United 
States. Although the movement formal- 
ly had its actual start June 1, 1910, by 
Oct 1 there were scouting organiza- 
tions In every state In the Union and 
in our three dependencies, the Ha- 
waiian and Philippine Islands and 
Porto Rico. The idea has swept our 
land like wild-fire and at the present 
approximately 500,000 boys and 3,000 
men as scout masters have been en- 
rolled In the movement. 

It Is almost Impossible to conceive 
of a single place of any Importance in 
the United States that has 
touched by the genius of 
ment. . , 

The Boy Scout movement is essen- 
tially American. After two and a half 
years of experience In England and 
her colonies, the Idea was brought back 
to its native soil, the United States 
Many of the biggest men 
try. those who were at 
most of our larger movements, believe 
that the Boy Scuots idea offers 
America the greatest opportunity

the move- 

In the coun

s. belie 



the boy and the 

of life. President 

Taft has consented to serve as honorary 
president of the Boy Scouts of America. 

Speaking in the terms of boyhood, 
the scope of the Boy Scouts of America 
is equal to the Interests of boyhood 
Itself. Between the ages of 12 and 
18 the Interests of a boy are gen- 
eral and reach all the way from the 
catching of minnows and tadpoles to 
finding God in the stars. 

The Boy Scouts of America alms to 
supplement the various existing educa- 
tional agencies such as the state, 
church home, school, boys' club, Sun- 
day sciiool. boys' brigade. Y. M. C. A., 
Y^oung Men's Catholic association, 
Young Men's' Hebrew association, etc. 
Its recreational activity may be classi- 
fied under scout craft, camp craft, 
tracking or observation, woodcraft, 
chivalry life saving, health, patriotism. 

The aim of tlie Boy Scouts of Amer- 
ica Is to promote the ability In boys to 
do things for themselves and for oth- 
ers. It seeks to teach a boy re- 
sourcefulnes by a knowledge of wood 
craft and out-door llfe;,lt seeks to 
make him strong and healthy; it seeks 
to make him chivalrous and to do little 
kindly deeds dally for someone else; 
It seeks to teach him life-saving; it 
seeks to teach him patriotism and citi- 
zenship so that as a member of the 
nation ha may give gladly of himaelf 

for the proper 
as a citizen. 

The Boy Scouts of America seeks to 
organize represetiiative groups of men 
called local committees or councils In 
the various states and towns. Under 
the direction of this local council men 
over 21 years of age are secured as 
scout masters or scout leaders. Each 
becomes the leader of a troop which 
consists of at least three patrols. A 
patrol of scouts numbers eight, the 
eighth member being an older boy and 
the patrol leader. This arrangement 
guarantees adequate leadership and 
recognizes the gang Instinct. 

The scout idea takes the non-super- 
vised leisure time of boys and fills it 
with recreational and educational ac- 
tivities. It teaches him facts about 
nature and citizenship and how to get 
the most out of life. At the present 
time all over the country there are in- 
sistent demands for field secretaries to 
organize and promote the work. 

The scout Idea Is a peace movement. 
Every possible precaution has been 
taken to guard against it being 
likened to a military movement. We 
do not permit arms. The boys are not 
allowed to carry guns even In connec- 
tion with the camp activities. Before 
he becoems a scout he must take the 
scout's oath, thus: 

"On my honor I promise that I will 
do my best — 

1. To do my duty to God and my 

'•2. To help other people at all 

"3. To obev the Scout law." 
And then after he has qualified he 
is put in the class of the tenderfoot, 
and after he has complied with certain 
specified conditions, he Is entitled to 
wear the badge of a tenderfoot. After 
thirty days of further study, If he 
passes a satisfactory examination and 
shows that he has a bank account of 
at least $1, ho is entitled to receive 
promotion as a second class scout. 
After waiting another period and com- 
plying with certain conditions, he can 
become a first class scout. The whole 
field of scout activity is then open to 
him. If he desires to become pro- 
ficient In any one line he can make a 
special study with a view of qualify- 
ing to pass the test which will en- 
title him to a merit badge for which 
he has to pay himself. Nothing Is 
given the boy. We Insist that he 
either pay for the badge out of his 
own allowance, or earn the money. 
We discourage the endowment of 
groups of boys by wealthy people. 

The outlook before the movement 
is most promising. The 4.000 leaders 
can be multiplied and remultlplled be- 
fore our task shall have been accom- 
plished. Great though our outreach 
has been, the vast scope of territory 
of the United States seems to promise 
a larger chance for the application 
of the scout principles than any otner 
country at present working with the 
idea. At the present time the scout 
Idea has been taken up In nineteen 
different countries.

The country has been flooded with 
novels dealing with conditions in the 
South in the half dozen years immed- 
iately preceding the Civil war, the 
period covered by that struggle, and 
the years of reconstruction. The au- 
thor of "The Prodigal Judge " goes back 
farther, to 1835. and gives us a picture 
of life in the Interior of North Caro- 
lina and Western Tennessee at that 
time. The story has to do with the 
middle classes rather than with the 
planters and commercial Interests. 
There might have been added many 
details of the lives of these people that 
would be Interesting, but since the 
evident purpose of the writer was to 
portray particular characters rather 
than to "write up" the life of the times, 
and since he accomplishes his purpose 
to a reasonable degree, one can hardly 
quarrel with him for not paying more 
attention to matters that really had 
little to do with the story Itself. 

'The handling of the central charac- 
ter Is somewhat out of the ordinary. 
One finds one's Interest in the earlier 
pages centered about the fate of a 
small boy who Is left alone In the 
world through the death of the man 
who had been furnishing the means for 
his support. As the story develops, 
new characters come on the scene un- 
til the full personnel of the plot is re- 
vealed, but meanwhile Interest cen- 
ters principally In the boy, and It Is 
not until one nears the end that the 
realization comes of a change of In- 
terest, a change that has subordin- 
ated the youngster, the chief perform- 
ers In the love-drama and oven the 
actors In the wider plot against the 
existing social system, to the char- 
acter of the judge. 

The Judge himself Is not a particu- 
larly valuable addition to the list of 
fictitious personages. He is shown as 
a man of great ability and consider- 
able strength of character, who. suf- 
fering from experiences which are not 
revealed to us until near the end of 
the book, abandons himself to the 
weaknesses of the world about him 
and abuses the social order that re- 
fuses to rate him above his own valua- 
tion of himself as that valuation ap- 
pears In his daily life. Even his first 
recorded act of kindness, directed to- 
ward the lonely boy, Is prompted by 
selfishness and a debased appetite. It 
Is not until the boy has won a place 
In tlve man's heart that the restoration 
of the better side of the Judge's char- 
acter begins. 

When finally the judge realizes that 
he has something to give him a purpose 
in life the transformation becomes 
more rapid, but it takes a serious shock 
to arousti the prodigal to the exertion 
of his full power In his own reforma- 
tion. Whatever lesson may be claimed 
for the story Is, that neither conscious- 
ness of ability nor opportunity will 
suffice to make a man accomplish 
things and live up to his posslbilltlvs, 
unless they are accompanied by some 
interest that prompts him to effort: but 
that, given that Interest, he may win 
the greatest victory of all, a victory 
over himself. 

There is plenty of incident In the 
story — attempts at kidnaping and ab- 
duction: clashes between the rouglwr 
characters of the country; a murder- 
ous nsv.iult in a lonely tavern; a plot 
to arm the slaves and incite them to 
an uprLsIng; a duel; a fight on the 
water, and a sensational scene in a 
court room. 

As a pure character sketch "The 
Prodigal Judge" falls short of what 
n.lght be desired, for It deals with 
many incidents that have no actual 
connection with the central figure. As 
a historical novel It pictures conditions 
and scenes rather too vaguely to he of 
great value. But as a story that will 
hold the Interest both through Its plot 
and the mann^er of Its relation, it Is 
entitled to find favor with tlie read- 
ing public.

Martha Young. New York: Hinds, 
Noble & Eldredge. 50 cents. 
A simple, short, and pleasing story, 
evidently intended primarily for little 
ones who have advanced but a short 
way into the world of printed matter, 
but one that wll prove thoroughly en- 
joyable to grown-ups as well. The 
scene, as nearly as it can be located. 
Is laid In Childhood. The story is that 
of "Bessie Bell," a little girl who was 
left alone when the city where she 
lived was stricken with the scourge of 
the fever. The style Is much like that 
of Kipling's Jungle Stories. It Is pleas- 
antly quaint, vet clear, and Is marked 
by the repetition of phrase that Is dear 
to the childish mln.d. An admirable 
gift book.

ERT. By Maj. Robert Stiles. New 
York and Washington: The Neale 
Publishing company. $2.00. 
A new edition of a book that can 
hardly fall to Interest the student of 
history, the reader of anything more 
than light fiction, and the veteran of 
any war. It tells the experience and 
Impressions of a member of the Con- 
federate army who was In more or 
less direct touch with Gen. Robert E. 
Lee through the greater part of the 
great war, and gives a wonderfully 
clear picture of the men who were 
ready to lay down their lives for the 
cause of the South. It Is not rabidly 
partisan, as have been some other 
publications bv this same house. The 
writer evidently tries to see both sides 
of the questions over which the two 
great armies fought, and It cannot be 
denied that he succeeds admirably In 
that purpose. 

What makes the account doubly In- 
teresting Is the fact that the writer 
was a resident of the North at the time 
the crisis came. His father, brothersr 
and himself went to the South, and 
entered the army of the Confederacy. 
We are thus given an Insight Into the 
views of those who. though they might 
reasonably have been expected to sym- 
pathize with the Union cause, felt Im- 
pelled bv their beliefs to ally them- 
selves with the opponents of the Union. 
Far from being the least interesting 
portion of the book is that part de- 
voted to a Southern estimate of Gen. 
Grant and his methods. In this MaJ. 
Stiles is generous to the enemy, and 
his statement regarding the Federal 
commander shows not only the char- 
acter of the subject as It was seen by 
the men he was fighting, but gives a 
yet clearer Idea of the Intensity of 
the Southerner's devotion to the cause 
of secession. 

The style of the book Is admirable. 
It Is rather conversational In char- 
acter, and leaves the impression that 
one has been talking directly to the 
author Instead of reading his words. 
The account of the four years Is full 
of Incident, but such paragraphs are 
not roughly dragged In. They seem to 
belong naturally where they are found, 
and they are Inavluable as Illustrations 
of points the author seeks to Impress. 
With the bitterness of the long 
struggle all but forgotten, this view of 
the war as It appeared to "our friend, 
the enemy." Is valuable both as a 
work of history and as a means to 
a more Intimate view of features of 
a critical period in our country's life 
which hitherto have been unrecognized 
bv the Northern people. It Is well 
calculated to avoid the stirring up of 
sectional feeling. It presents the men 
from both North and South as fellow- 
beings, and helps materially to an un- 
derstanding of the best elements that 
enter Into the American character.

had not been removed from the debris

The theorv that the authorities are 
now working on is that the place was 
entered by burglars at an early hour 
this morning. It is belioved that they 
bored a hole In the safe with the in- 
tention of blowing it. What happened

gray-haired woman, walked before 
the Judge's bench. 

They were a most unusual couple, 
entirely different from those who 
generally put in their appearance in 
the courtroom. The old man had 
been arrested the previous afternoon, 
and after putting up bail, had gone 
home, where he told his wife of his

laid down the law to him, for when 
he appeared he was a picture of 
meekness and entered a plea of guilty.

the court, the wife put it with some 
change which she had in a purse 
which she carried in her hand. The

the state prison some days 
has already begun his time. 

Doyle's attorney, W. B. Moer, claimed 
to Judge Dlbell, who iieard the case 
at a special term of court this morn- 
ing, that the indictment under which 
J>oyle pleaded guilty was defective In 
that It did not state offenses and places 
where they were committed previous to 
the one committed in the West end. 

Doyle was Indicted by the March 
grand jury under the habitual criminal 
act. It was found by local author- 
ities that lie had committed offenses 
against the law at different times be- 
fore he got into the present trouble 
and that he had served time at differ- 
ent :nstitullons. 

His sentence was a stiff one. because 
he had been in much trouble before. 
He was warned how stiff the efentence 
would be made before he pleaded 
guilty. It Is stated that Doyle has 
•pent half of his years up to date In 
prisons and reformatories. 

Attorney Moer made a motion In ar- 
rest of judgment. Judge Dlbell toc-jc 
the matter under consideration.

Of all men Champ Clark probably 
offers the best example of wh it may be 
i accomplished by plain grit, 1 a.rd work 
and undaunted courage, without back- 
ing of money or Influence. Sprung 
from the plain people. Yeit, Indeed; 
and the plainest kind at tl-at. For 
John Hampton Clark, Champ's father, 
was an itineiant dentist and v/eiit 
about the backwoods districts of Ken- 
tucky on horseback, pulling and tink- 
ering teeth. It was all ore to him 
whether the teeth were those of a 
human being, a horse, a dog or a cow. 
He treated them all alike for a modest 

This man Clark, the eld<r, was a 
good deal of what In these days would 
be called a "crank." He lad a gilt 
for offhand or extempore lecturing, 
and he would administer instruction by 
this means at any time to anybody, 
willing or unwilling, who might come 
along. His special hobby, however, 
was religion, and the doctriiies he ex- 
pounded. In Intervals of tooth draw- 
ing, were of the most Intense y hellfire- 
and - damnation - for - pretty-nearly- 
everybody variety. Champ lemeinbers 
them well, for his father on more 
than one occasion took him along on 
his professional tours. 

Incidentally, the elder Clark was a 
firm believer In discipline for chil- 
dren, and tlie beatii^gs he gave to 
young Champ with a"" ropes end as 
punishment for comparatively trifling 
derelictions were such as to produce 
a painful and lasting imprestiion. One 
of the worst of them was bestowed 
on an occasion when Champ had 
"played hookey" from school for the 
purpose of IL-jtening to tlie eloquence 
of J. Proctor Knott. The orator had 
been engaged to defend the accused in 
a murder ca.^e of local notoriety and 
the word-pictures lie used 1 1 a highly 
imaginative description of the crime 
were profoundly interesting to the 
schoolboy, until his eye happened to 
meet that of his father on the oppo- 
site side of the courtroom. 

His mother's name was Beauchamp — 
properly pronounced, as in England, 
Beecham — and thus It came about that 
the boy (destined to become speaker of 
tlie national house of representatives) 
was chlstened James ]3eauchamp 
Clark. But people would laslst upon 
calling him Bowchamp. There was a 
James B. Clark in every tow n he came 
to In hlB subsequent percKrinations, 
and so he finally reduced himself to 
plain Cliainp. 

Kentuckians, the Clarks of half a 
century ago had a few family feuds on 
their hands. Some of the Clarks wero 
ratiier "bad men," as the ph -ase is, and 
somewhat too ready on occfcslons with 
a "gun." Champ " himself was re- 
luctantly « obliged to exchange bullets 
with an unfriendly person who ven- 
tured to ''sass" him. This, however, 
was a mere "shooting scrape,'' as sucli 
things will happen between gentlemen, 
and not in any proper sens* a duel. 

Champ has always discointenanced 
figliting. He hates it. It in true that 
in boyiiood days he engaged in a good 
many encounters at fisticuffs with 
other youths who showed him disre- 
spect, but these happenings were un- 
avoidable. A similar spirit of re- 
luctance to engage in overt hostilities 
inspired his action when, tome years 
later, he was practicing liw in the 
town of Louisiana, Mo. Two notorious 
"bad men" more or less full of equally 
bad liquor, came Into his office with 
the intention to "turn it inside out," 
and started operations by addressing 
quite a lot of abusive language to 
Champ's partner. So long as this con- 
tinued Champ went on reaJing a law 
book which. In the absence of clients, 
had ensraged his attention. But when 
the visitors drew revolvers he yanked 
out the drawer of liis desk, produced 
therefrom a pair of pistols of the 
largest caliber, and exclaimed: "I do 
the fighting for this concern'." W'here- 
upon the Intrduers were s? eager to 
avoid further disagreabU ness that 
thev actuallv fell downstair:?. ^ ^ ^, 

When Champ was 14 WJ find him 
doing odd Jobs for nearby farmers and 
"clerking" In a country store. When 
he was less than 15 years o d. he got a 
job as teacher in a rural school and, 
some of the pupils being older than 
himself, he "toted" a. pair of heavy re- 
volvers to enforce his pedagogic au- 
thority. Those were days when, in 
Kentucky, nothing count. ;d like a 
"shooting iron." He had made up his 
mind that lie must have a college 
education. He managed to accumulate 
by farm work $100. He hi J the cash, 
all in paper notes, in a liole in the 
wall. Alas! the rats came along 
ate It, chewed it up for thei • nests 
fragments so unrecognizable that 
treasury could not redeem it. 

It was a dreadful blow. But 
Champ discouraged? Put tlie question 
to that iron jaw which he vears In his 
photographic portraits. He had the 
jaw then, just as now. Consequently 
he went to work In the Kentucky 
backwoods school, and, sujpleinenting 
ills earnings as a teaclier with what- 
ever dollars he could acquire from 
other sources, at length succeeded in 
puttlniT away enougli to enable him to 
enter college. At jujst abott tins time 
something quite ou/t of tie ordinary 
happened. A man of the neighborhood 
known to be worth $30,000, offered to 
pay for Champ's college course. "L'ncle 
Billy," as folks called him, said that 
any college would do, in Europe or 
America. The only conditlcn he made 
was that Champ should become a 
clergyman. Champ decllneil. Ho said j 
that lie must preserve his independ- 

Witlioiit anybody's help Champ man- 
aged to enter Kentucky university 
when he was 17 years old, and took 
the first place in his class Six years 
later he was graduated with highest 
honors and a great reputation for 
Greek at Bethany, W. Va. ;;t had been 
a long struggle, for in order to pay 
his college expenses he vas obliged 
to keep on witli teaching. He would 
teach school for a spell, go back to col- 
lege, return to teaching ajraln and so 
on until he got through. 

His reputation for scholarship was 
so high that on the ver> day after 
graduation he received an offer of the 
presidency of Marshall college at 
Huntington, W. Va. Asked to make 
formal application for the place, inci- 
dentally stating his quallf.cations, he 
wrote: "To the Trustees: I have just 
been awarded my diploma at Bethany 
with highest honors. I an 23 years 
old, 6 feet 2 Inches tall, weigh 170 
pounds, am unmarried, a Kentuckian 
by birth, a Campbellite in religion, a 
Democrat in politics, and a master Ma- 

But Clark, ever since he heard J. 
Proctor Knott address a jury, had 
wanted to be a lawyer. His original 
ambition as a boy was to become a 
prizefighter, but he got over that idea. 
Soon tiring of the businests of presid- 
ing over a college, he took a law 
course at the University o* Cincinnati 
and then went to Wlchlti, Kan., to 
practice. Unfortunately tliere was a 
total lack of clients, and alter subsist- 
ing for eleven weeks on crackers and 
cheese, so he tells the story, he took 
a fresh start and landed In the town 
of Louisiana, in Pike county. Mo. Still 
the law did not prosper. Champ was 
obliged to take up teaching again, as 
principal of a school. Before long he 
was city attorney. Aftervard he be- 
came prosecuting attorrey of Pike 
county, and held the job four years, 
doing some lecturing and farming In- 

Champ Clark has written: "I can't 
remember back to a time when I was 
not at hard labor of som< sort — on a 
farm. In a store, teaching school, prac- 
ticing law, serving as a legislator. The 
happiest hours of my llfj> were when I 
graduated, when I marrlel and when 
my children were born; the saddest, 
when two of them died." 

Like his father, Champ Is a born 
teacher and lecturer. During recent 
summers he has received 1 1,000 a week 
for lecturing on Chautau<tua circuits. 
Like his father, also, he Is a great 
student of the Bible, and it has been 
said of him that he knoMrs the 








Champ Clark was "snapped" as ho

Per Month. 

Rich Strike in Colorado Mine 
of Davis-Daly Com- 

Butte. Mont.. April 8.— (Special to 
The Herald.) — Every once in a while 
some person starts a report that the 
mlne.-^ are going to be closed down 
and the report .spreads like wildfire. 
Such a report wan put in circulation 
a few days ago and verybody seemed 
to take It for granted that It was 
true. Therefore the announcement 
from General Sui.erintendent John Gillie 
of the Anaconda company, coming after 
he had been beselged by telephone 
calls from bu.-^incHs men and others, 
that there was absolutely no truth in 
the reoort. was received with the 
ereate:^t satisfaction. Due to the cur- 
tailment which has been in force for 
several montlis, the number of men 
at work lias not been as large as it 
was twelve months ago and therefore 
business, generally speaking, has been 
somewliat yulet and the thought of a 
complete shutdown created no small 
amouni of uneasiness. Tlie statement 
of Mr GilUe came on the i^ame day 
that President Thuyer of the Anaconda 
company made the announcement that 
it was proposed to continue the output 
at tlio same rate per month as at 
present, and the two statements were 
a souice of great satisfaction to all 



A strike of ore running 12 per cent 
copptr has been made Into the Colo- 
rado mine of the Davis-Daly company, 
but up to the present time it has not 
been del.nltely decided as to the ex- 
tent of the discovery. It is four feet 
wide. It vas cut just west of the 
shaft on the l.TOO-foot level and the 
samples being shown about the citj 
air- tertainlv among the finest ever 
exhibited In the district. Nothing of 
a positive character will be given out 
by the management, but the miners 
who are working on the level have 
iio hesitation in corroborating the re- 
port of tlie discovery and state that 
It is among toe richest they ever saw. 
On one cf the upper levels some time 
ago the same vein was cut. but there 
It coniaintd .lo commercial value. Cm 
that level the vein was but two feet 
wide It is nothing unusual to rind 
a vein In this di.strlct of but two feet 
wide and ore of little value and a 
huidred feet down to cut the same 
vein and find It four or more feet 
wide and lich in ore. The drifting 
now going on is being watched with 
groat interest and there are those who 
are of the opinion that it will bo 
found to lun a long distance and be 
found very rich, as some good pro- 
ducing nroriertics are in the locality. 
March ProUiiotlon. 
The copper production for March 
by the Butte mines aggregated about 
21.5:.'2,000 pound.s. Tlie output of ore 
and the production of coppei-. daily and

Pilot Butte. 

The Pilot Butte Mining company ex- 
pects to commence mining about the 
middle of this month. All the ma- 
chinery required is now on the ground 
and is being gotten Into position wtih 
as little delay as possible. Operations 
were suspended on this property three 
years ago after a three-compartment 
shaft had been sunk to a depth of 530 
feet. At that time a crosscut was run 
on the BOO-foot level 300 feet to the 
south and 300 feet to the north and 
those intrested are satisfied now that 
If the south crosscut had been ex- 
tended about thirty feet further it 
would have Intersected the vein now 
being developed bv the Badger State 
and which Is said to contain some 
of the richest ore seen in the district 
for some time. Mining is to be con- 
ducted under the supervision of 
Patrick Sheehan, superintendent of the 
Tuolumne company. Edward Hlckey, 
president of the Tuolumne company. Is 
at the Pilot Butte company with ht. 
Pnul an<l Milwaukee men. filling the 
otiier offices. 

QiieMion of Copper Surplun. 
There Is no question l>ut that the 
porphyv mines of Nevada and Utah 
:ire verj' lar!;el>' ttsponsible for the in- 
crease '.n the copper surplus in the 
past few monllis. and from reports It 
looks a.'i If this condition Is going to 
continue for a time at least. The Ne- 
va'!:i Ccnsoliduttd management Is re- 
sponsible for the statement that the 
production during the month of March 
will be maintained during April and 
that a little over 9.000.000 pounds will 
be turned out In the near future. Peo- 
ple who watch closely passing events 
doubt verv much If the Amalgamated, 
Oo'e-Rvan and Guggenheim interests 
are verv much closer together than 
they were a year ago. and as an evi- 
dence of this point to the fact that the 
International Smelting company at 
Tooele, controlled by interests very 
close to the Amalgamated, is now going 
ahead with preparations to compete 
against the Gugggenhelms in lead 
smelting by the erection of a plant with 
a capacity of 500 tons. There is no 
doubt that plans for an amalgamation 
of all the interests were perfected up 
to a certain point, but there some kind 
of a hitch occurred, and bevond this 
point the Guggenheims would not go 
until their terms were accepted. That 
an agreement will be reached some time 
in the possible near future, there is no 
doubt, but in the meantime all the In- 
terests are working out their own sal-

Houghton, Mich.. April 8.— (Special to 
The Herald.) — Tlie Bohemia Mining 
company has temporarily suspended 
exploratory work, and the withdrawal 
of the diamond drill outfits leaves the 
property idle. Exploratory work was 
In progress for about one year past, 
in which time several amygdaloidal 
beds were encountered by the drills, 
all of which with the exception of pos- 
sibly one, offered small promise. The 
operations of the past were confined 
to tlie "east country" along the con- 
tact with the sandstone marking the 
eastern limits of the mineral zone and 
in which horizon the Lake lode and 
Adventure lodes He. There yet re- 
mains a considerable area of unex- 
plored land to the westward of these 
operations to receive attention later. 
The Indiana Mining company has 
succeded in dropping its sand shaft 
through ninety-seven feet of sand and 
gravel to bed rock and Is now prepared 
to continue downward In solid rock. 
The drop shaft was designed by the 
Wisconsin Bridge & Iron company and 
is of steel construction and cylindrical 
in form lined with concrete. There 
are three compartments witliin the 
cylinder, whcli measures eighteen feet 
in diameter. The shaft is sinking near 
the point from which the rich drill 
core was obtained In January last year 
and which caused so much sensation 
at the time. The company continues 
to give a part of its attention to the 
exploration of the property and re- 
cently tapped a copper bearing amyg- 
daloid In the Evergreen horizon which 
promises much. The new lode shows 
a width of about twenty-five feet, and 
carries heavy copper in commercial 

South I.ak«. 
The South Lake .Mining company has 
driven its last sand pipe preliminary 
to shaft sinking and is now awaiting 
funds to begin tliis work. In the ex- 
poratory campaign Just closed the 
South Lake company succeeded in tak- 
ing a succession of rich cores of cop- 
per rock from the series of holes put 
down on the property In the eff^r' 
made to determine the strike and dip 
of the several lodes known to traverse 
the South Lake acreage. Four dis- 
tinct copper bearing lodes were lo- 
cated all overlain with a thick over- 
burden of sand and coarse gravel as 
much as 250 feet deep In places, that 
promises seriously to interfere with 
shaft sinking, unless It can be avoided 
Sand pipes were being driven to bed

W^at Thayer Saya. 
B B Thaver. president of the Ana- 
conda companv. who has been in the 
city for over a month looking over the 
various mines, says that all the prop- 
erties are looking exceedingly good, 
and that as depth is attained the ore is 
getting richer. While a very large 
amount of development is going on. the 
only shaft sinking at the present time 
Is going on in the Gagnon and Belmont 
mines. The Gagnon is a new vertical 
shaft to take the place of theold In- 
cline and Is now down about l.aSO feet. 
It will be taken to a depth of 2.300 feet. 
the bottom of tlie old shaft, and con- 
nections made with the Gagnon work- 
ings at that depth. The old Incline 
shaft will be used as an air shaft when 
the now one is completed. The Gagnon. 
win be remembered, at one time was 
thought to be about worked out. A 
little over a year ago a large body of 
high grade ore was opened up and It is 
still holding out. The Belmont mine 
1r located in the southern nart of the 
city and the shaft Is being sunk to con- 
nect with the workings of tlie Ana- 
conda on all levels below tlie 1.600. It 
is now down to a depth of 2.200 feet 
and connected with the Anaconda on 
the 1.600. 1,800 and 2,000-foot levels. It 
will go to a depth of 2,400 feet, which 
will give connection with the lowest 
level of the Anaconda. In the Ana- 
conda no mining has been done on the 
2,400-foot level, which was opened, a 
few years ago, bevond making a raise 
to the 2.200-foot level. The rich virgin 
ground between the levels has not yet 
been touched for mining. All the min- 
ing is confined to the 1.800. 2,000 and 
2.200-foot levels. . , . ^ - 

In the old Parrot no mining is being 
done, but it is intended to work the 
old ground after it is connected with 
the Neversweat and other properties 
adjoining. The Little Mlna hoist, an 
old Parrot property, has been connected 
with thp West Stewart, a former Clark 
property, on the 1.200-foot level. The 
Original, another former Clark prop- 
erty is also being connected with the 
Gagnon and just as soon as the work l.s 
completed the mine will be worked 
through the Gagnon. At the Mountain 
Con the shaft has been completed to a 
depth of 2,300 feet, at which depth a 
new level is being opened. A crosscut 
south from the shaft has just cut 
through the vein, which shows equally 
as high quality of ore as on the 2.200- 
loot level. I nail the other mines de- 
velopment work of a more or less ex- 
tensive character is going on just the 
same as before the curtailment policy 
In production went into effect. 

Mr Thayer savs that experiments 
are being carried on at the Waslioe 
smelter for the purpose of Installing 
a new system of concentration, which 
If found to be a success, will prove 
of the greatest importance in the re- 
duction of ore. 

George Mine ChanirM Hand*. 
The George mine, located in the 
Georgetown district, has been taken 
over by the Silver Lake Mining com- 
pemy. an organization now controlling 
two or three other properties in the 
district and of whch Mayor NevJ'^ of 
this city Is president and Pat Wall, the 
mining man. Is managing director. 
Several Chicago capitalists are also in- 
terested. The price paid was $25,000 
with a net 15 per cent on the returns 
from what ore Is already .broken In 
the mine and on the dump. There has 
been an option on this mine for sev- 
eral months, otherwise it would never 
have been secured for the price stated, 
as only recently a very rich strike was 
made whioh assayed 700 ounces In 
sliver and $340 In gold to the ton. The 
Sliver Lake Mining company within 
the past few weeks has secured op- 
tions on several otlier properties, in- 
cludlnp tie Gold ro\n and Venezuela. 
Mayor Nevln states that arrangements 
have been about completed for the 
construction of the proposed electric 
tramway from the minhipr district to 
the end of the Butte. Anaconda & Pa- 
cific railway at the lime quarries, 
which win thus enable the mine own- 
ers to reacti th» Washoe smelter with 

the 1.200-foot level of the Glroux shatt 
is also again going ahead as rapidly as 
possible. This work has been ma- 
terially delayed for some weeks past 
by the inflow of water, which it was 
feared might swamp the pumps by 
breaking into a large body of water. 
A bulkhead has just been put in 
which will stop and hold all the water, 
hence there can be no danger from 
that source In the future, and the 
crosscut will be driven as rapidly as 
possible and will probably reach the 
.Vlpha workings within three or four 

The station on the 1.400-foot level 
is nearing completion, after which the 
fourth crosscut will be started for the 
Alpha workings, which will also be 
bulkheadcd before reaching the point 
where water may be expected. Steam 
has been cut in from the new boiler 
plant to the old engines, which are 
still In commission and probably will 
be for a few weeks yet. The mine 
will soon be equipped for electric light- 
ing, which In a measure will do away 
with all probability of fire from 
candles. The camp at KImberly will 
also be furnished with electric lights. 

While Manager Mills is non-com- 
mittal on the subject. It is probable 
that the shipping of high-grade, di- 
rect smelting ore will be commenced 
soon after the crosscut on the 1,200- 
foot level readies the Alpha ore bod- 
ies, which is a question of but a few 
weeks. This will naturally give an 
upward turn to the stock market, and 
place the properly on a self-support- 
ing basis. 

It will be some time In the future, 
however, before regular shipments will 
be commenced, as time will be re- 
quired to put in ore shoots and arrange 
for sloping. The fleet of churn drills 
will resume operations in the near fu- 
ture, as an ample water supply is now 
guaranteed for the spring and summer 
months. The force of miners is being 
steadily Increa-sed, and will be doubled 
within the next few months. 


Report of Cessation of Mine 

Activity Denied by 


Bisbee, Ariz.. April 8. — The report 
that the Shattuck mines would close 
down this month, which has been in 
circulation on the streets, was repeated 
to General Auditor Olsen of the Shat- 
tuck properties and the report met 
with a prompt denial. 

"So far as I know the closing of 
the mines is not or has not been un- 
der consideration. If this were true 
I certainly would have known of it 
and I am satisfied that the report is 
baseless. There has been no meeting 
of the stockholders and no such action 
would be taken without a meeting." 
said Mr. Olsen. , , ^. 

"There will be a meeting of the 
stockholders on April 10 and what 
action will be taken at that meeting 
I am unable to state." he continued. 
"Please deny the report and say that 
we are going right ahead." 

As a sign of the activity at the 
Shattuck mines, Mr. Olsen stated that 
a bed of ore was recently struck on 
the 500-foot level, yielding 18 per cent 
copper. The average shipments of ore 
from the mine to the Douglas smelter, 
he said, was from 115 to 120 tons. 
This average is below the average 
maintained until eight months ago. 
when a curtailment was decided upon. 

At the meeting of stockholders to be 
held on April 10. it Is probable that no 
dividend will be declared. It is be- 
lieved that the 'management has de- 
cided that it is unwise policy to con- 
tinue taking out the high grade of ore 
this property yields on account of the 
very .small margin of profit caused by 
the condition of the copper market. 
Shattuck has so far paid $1,050,000 on 
Its 350.000 shares of stock.

Isle Royale. 

The Isle Royale Copper company has 
been forced to a partial curtailment of 
production during the time that will 
be necessary to replace tlie foundation 
under one of the stamp heads at the 
mill. The repairs are expected to con- 
sume about three months' time, after 
which full production will again be the 
order. At the mine sinking is In prog- 
ress In shafts 2 and 4. and similar work 
Is promised In shafts 5 and 6 in the 
near future. Development work con- 
tinues without interruption and is re- 
sulting in the blocking out of good 
average ground. About forty-five ma- 
chine drills are in commission. The 
company has been producing at the 
rate of about 7.000.000 pounds of fine 
copper annually, and on this output 
was earning around $100,000 which Is 
being put into development work. The 
rock is yielding from fifteen to six- 
teen pounds of fine copper per ton of 
rock milled, which is probably a fair 
average of what the property may be 
expected to yield in the future. Ex- 
ploratory work In the Baltic horizon 
was suspended some months ago with- 
out disclosing anything of value, but 
may be expected to again be in prog- 
ress with the coming of summer. 
The Winona Copper company is meet- 
ing with the usual delay and difficulties 
incidental to the starting of new 
plants, and as soon as the new stamp 
mill owned jointly with the King Phil- 
lip Copper company, is In proper shape 
to begin milling a steady production 
may be looked for. The mine is already 
opened well ahead of Immediate re- 
quirements and m condition to pro- 
duce upwards of 1.000 tons of copper 
rock daily though the output for the 
immediate future will probably not 
exceed 600 tons per day. There is 
some doubt that the water supply will 
prove adequate in the operation of 
two stamps with which the mill is 
equipped, but a careful study of the 
question made by the company s en- 
gineers covering a period of ^three 
years Indicate that little is to be feared 
on this score. The plans of the en- 
gineers pro\'lde for the handling of 
waste waters from the mill which will 
be clarified and returned to the mill 
to be used over again. 
The Hancock Consolidated Mining 
company Is slowly rounding Into shape 
for production. Arrangements have 
been made with the Lake Milling. 
Smelting & Refining company to handle 
the company's output for a period of 
one year. Tlie "erection of Its own 
stamp mill for which a site has al- 
ready been provided will depend upon 
the results obtained in the Lake mills, 
and may not be expected to begin 
Inside of another year. The big verti- 
cal shaft which Is to be the main ave- 
nue of production In the Hancock mine 
has b'een permanently equipped with 
heavy machinery and is in position to 
produce at any time. The Pewablc 
lode, to Intersect which this shaft is 
being sunk, lies around 3.500 feet from 
the surface at this point and with the 
shaft sinking around 2.700 feet there 
yet remains over 700 feet to go, which 
will likely take all of another year's 
time In the No. 3 lode, so-called, 
the company has developed copper 
ground of good average /rade, and 
this lode Is expected to furnish the 
output which the company Is about 
ready to begin. Drifting is In progress

A steam drill has been placed in 
operation at the rockpile and the men 
are making a better showing in point 
of work done than at any time since 
the yard was established. 

About a week ago the number to 
report at the yard fell off consider- 
ably and those at the head of the 
work were for some days unable to

that men down from the woods with 
money in their pockets were treating

work again becomes scarce. 

The results of the work yard have 
been noticeable. The r umber of men 
hansing around the Bowery has de- 
creased. They are either working at 
the stone yard or they lave left town. 
A great many of them have gone to

Officials of the bureau of American 
ethnology of the Smithsonian Institu- 
tion are highly pleased over an addi- 
tion which they have Just made to 
their collection, and which they regard 
as one of their choicest treasures. This 
acQuisition comprises four sacred bun- 
dles or packs of the Osage Indians, 
very few of which have ever been ob- 
tained by scientists, as they are gen- 
erally burled with their "keepers. 

These sacred bundles are Just as pre- 
cious from a religious standpoint to 
the Indian as they are from a scien- 
tific standpoint to the ethnologist and 
are extremely hard to obtain. They 
represent the holiest fetish of a tribe 
and BO zealously are they guarded from 
any profanation that they are Put in 
charge of a special priest or medicine 
man who keeps them carefully hidden. 
At certain periods they are opened and 
the contents worshipped amid the most 
elaborate ceremonies, but even at these 
times onlv the chosen men of the tribe 
are alloWed to see the Btrangely as- 
sorted articles that are kept in the bun- 

■^ These Osage packs differ greatly from 
anv that have been found hitherto, 
both as to texture and of the various 
wrapDlngs. and also as to the nature 
^f the articles they contain The bun- 
dles were secured for the National mu- 
seum bv Francis La Flesche. an edu- 
cated Omaha Indian, who is In the em- 
ploy of the Bureau of American Eth- 
nology. While at work In Oklahoma 
he learned of the exl.stence of such 
undies and immediately opened nego- 
tlatfonl with thfe Indian to whose care 
they had been intrusted. After exer- 
cising considerable dtjdomacy he suc- 
ceeded In persuading the Indian to part 
with them and brought them to Wash- 
ington and turned them over to the 
bureau of ethnology. ™,.,„w 

One of thew waa opened with much

contents as well as in tlie mystical 
and symbolical meanings of the pack 
and the various articles it contains. 

care by I>r. Walter Hough, one of 
the curators of the National museum. 
Dr Hough found the outside wrapping 
or sack to be made ol a rare Indian 
fabric, woven of the silky brow hair 
of the buftalo. This v^as bound with 
a buckskin hand decorated with human 
scalps, and the leg of an eagle. Ins de 
this was a buckskin bag and Inside 
that a haversack mads of a material 
resembling Chinese malting. 

In this haversack wure a pipe dec- 
orated with scalps, a tobacco bag. a 
braided cord made of woolen fabric 
and a bundle of buffalo bladders bound 
with a thong ornamerted with scalp, 
and one other bundle which was the 
most inportant of all for it repre- 
sented the "holy of holies." This 
bundle waa a buckskin case, to which 
was bound a buckskin object resemb- 
ling a head band. Inside this bundle 
was found the most sacred object of 
the pack — the body of a hawk, which 
liad been mummified and then painted 
a brilliant vermllllon and green. At- 
tached to the tall was a circlet of 
human scalps. The b >dy was sus- 
pended by a braided band made of 
woolen fabrics which evidently had 
been obtained by the tribe through 
trade with other Inditms. 

One of the three other bundles was 
found to contain the tattooing ap- 
paratus and materials used by the 
Osage Indians, all of which are re- 
garded as sacred as the tattooing is a 
religious ceremony. 'I'he other two 
packs were similar t) the one de- I 
.scribed but the article,! each contained

The big niusi(.al production, "The 
Man Who Owns Broadway," that has 
been creating all kinds of talk, will be 
the attraction at the Lyceum tonight 
and Mi.nday night. This success, di- 
rect from long runs in New York and 
Boston, tomes at last and with all the 
lavish scenic effects and tiie original 
New York company of eighty people 
and a large orchestra. Raymond Hitch- 
cock, t!ie clever comedian, will be seen 
In his famous creation of the title 
role of -yvdnoy I.vons," and his com- 
ing in a C.eorge Cohan play is creating 
a world of t-nthuslasm. lie appears In 
modtrn clot lies and Is supported by one 
of the most colebratcil ooinpanies that 
has ever left New Y'ork. 

It Is an ideal Cohan play with all 
the breeziness, dash and catchiness 
characteristic of the prolific young au- 
thors work. It is filled with dancing, 
Ringing and laughing novelties, and 
nothing could be more attractive than 
the choruses, the songs, the lyrics and 
the action that always goes with the 
Cohanesque eftorts. 

Mr. Cohan is respon.sible for the 
book as well as the music. He has 
taken for the pivotal character Sydney 
Lyons, a popular Broadway actor, and 
the daughter of a millionaire who has 
fallen in love with the idol of the liour. 
Her father has already arranged a 
marriage for her with a chap named 
Burnham. \\ lio as desciibed on the pro- 
gram as a villain. He also has an 
accomplice named Cliarlotte Curtis. 
These two swindlers have won the 
confidence of the millionaire, who has 
promised to marry Miss Curtis. How- 
ever, when Sydney Lyons meets them 
at a party given at the rich man's 
home, ho denounces them as a pair 
of steamship sharps known to the po- 
lice of Lonoon and New Y^ork. 

The swindlers inform Sylvia that 
Lyons is a scamp, who has been a 
corespondent in a dozen different di- 
vorce cases, and is also a widowei- with 
four children living In Denver. How- 
ever, after many complications and 
humiliations on the part of Lyons he 
flnallv convinces the rich man and his 
charming daughter that he Is an hon- 
est man. 

In dealing with the story Mr. Cohan 
has si-attered manv choice flowers of 
melody throughout the play. The play 
exacts spectacular ability from those 
assuming the leading roles, and a 
large chorus Is also demanded by the 
ensembles and dramatic scenes. The 
most Important parts will be In the 
hands of Flora Zabelle. Mildred Elaine, 
Lelia Rhodes. Oertrude Webster. John 
Hendricks. Mark Sullivan, Francis Lleb 

and Richard Taber.

Porter Emerson Browne's latest play 
and by far the greatest dramatic suc- 
cess in New York last season, "Tht 
Spendthrift, ■ which Frederic Thompson 
will present here at the Lyceum on 
Tuesdav night, April 11. with an ex- 
ceptlon'allv strong cast, is a striking 
object lesson in the folly and extrava- 
gance of women. The pathetic part of 
'The Spendthrift" is the woman's un- 
conscious foUy and her inability from 
long habits of self-indulgence to realize 
that anvthing else is important. 

Her husband tells her tiiat he i"? on 
the brink of failure, begs her to help 
him. suggests that they close the house 
to economize, and she in turn, declar- 
ing that she will do everything pos- 
sible, suggests a trip to Europe when 
the house Is closed, and the Immcdialj 
necessity of another automobile. Tired 
and worn with the struggle, the man 
gives up. 

The best twenty years of his life and 
all of his money are gone; and he tells 
the wife who has spent the money 
that he must now find some place to 
work as the employe of another man. 
What other Avomen have, this wife 
must have. The extravagant dresses 

that they wear, she must wear. She 
owes It to herself to keep up with her 
friends, but she owes nothing to her 

When the crash comes, the extrava- 
gant wife begs of a rich aunt who will 
not help her. and as the husband aban- 
dons hope, the wife produces $20,000 
In cash — twenty bills of $1,000 each. 
She lies to her husband and tells him 
that this money has been lent to her 
bv the rich aunt. The great sensa- 
tion of the play comes when the truth 
leaks out. The aunt who says. "She 
has one foot In the grave and the other 
in Wall street," will not be made the 
partner of a lie — even to save her niece 
and when the hu.sband would return to 
her the money he doesn't want to bor- 
row, she hands it back and says: "I 
divint give it to her." Then blowlj 
is forced from the heart-breaking wlie 
the fact that she has borrowed the 
$20,000 from another man — an enor- 
mously rich man known to the husband 
as a man without moral character. 

It is a sordid, heart-breaking pic- 
ture of a life that goes on under many 
an .\merKan roof. Uespite the seri- 
ousness of the subject discussed, Mr. 
Browne has woven into the play many 
humorous speeches and situations and 
throughout the play there runs a clean, 
wholesome love story in contrast to 
the main theme. The company pre- 
senting 'Tlie Spendthrift* Is headed by 
Doris Mitchell and Includes l^lonel 
Adams, Albert Sackett, Gwendolyn 
Piers, Forrest Orr, Lizzie McCall, Will- 
iam H. Sullivan and Alice Kelly.

Characterized as the biggest musical 
play ever produced, "The Midnight 
Sons," with its cast of 100 people and 
wonderfully realistic theater scene, 
comes to the Lyceum theater on April 
20, 21, and 22. It will be one of the 
few appearances of this play outside 
of the largest cities, such iis Boston, 
Philadelphia. Chicago and St. Louis. 

To call "The Midnight Sons" a mu- 
sical comedy gives no idea as to the 
character of the performance. It is 
more a spectacular production than a 
musical play. In New Y'ork they called 
it a 'musical moving picture In eight 
films." There are two acts and eight 
scenes, the scenes being as follows: 

Scene 1 — The farewell banquet to Sen- 
ator Noyes in the Sportsman's room 
of the Hotel Insomnia. 
Scene 2 — Exterior of the Richard Noyes 
shoe store on Fifth avenue, one year 
and a half later. 
Scene 3 — Interior of same. 
Scene 4 — Concourse at the Grand Cen- 
tral station. 
Scene 5 — The Honeymoon express. 

ACT n. 
Scent 1 — Interior of the Merri Mur- 
ray theater, same afternoon. 
Scene 2 — Exterior of the Merrl Mur- 
ray theater. 
Scene 3 — Garden fete at the Pounce- 
uponham hotel. Billionaire Beach, 
Fla., two months later. 
The most remarkable of these pic- 
tures above Is that showing a Pullman 
train In motion with a bridal party on 
the rear platform, and the Interior 
of an opera house with perfectly ar- 
ranged orchestra seats and sloping 
aisles, tiers of boxes, balcony and gal- 
lery, with every Incidental thing which 
goes to add to the picturesqueness, 
safety and comfort of a theater, such 
as ushers, water boys, program girls, 
candy boxes on the seats, carpets on 
the aisles, cushioned-back orchestra 
chairs, calcium lights, spot lights, red 
lights to mark the exit doors, etc. 
This scene lasts about thirty-five min- 
utes and Is the most genuinely funny 
in the play, with the possible excep- 
tion of the remarkable shoe store 
scene, in which two grotesque cook 
ladles ask to have their feet fitted by 
two dapper young clerks.

"ills Nerve." a Lamb's Club gambol 
playlet, with Charles Leonard Fletcher 
In the leading role, will be the feature 
act on next week's bill at the Orpheum 

For several years past Mr. Fletcher 
and his Impersonations of famous 
people of the stage and of real life 
have been popular In the best vaude- 
ville theaters but this season he has a 
new act. At a recent gambol of the 
Lambs' ciub, the famous New York 
club for actors, he discovered the 
sketch in which he Is now appearing. 
It was written by Perclval Knight, a 
playwright with <iuite a wide reputa- 
tion In the East, and it had an original 
and striking plot. The playlet told 
the story of a gentleman burglar of 
the Raffles type, who gains entrance 
to the apartments of a wealthy bache- 

lor, with the Intention of taking 
whatever valuables he can find. While 
he is there, a burglar of the Bill 
Sykes type-a typical porch climber, 
also appears on the scene. The new- 
comer takes the first burglar for the 
owner of the apartments, and some 
amazing situations are said to follow. 
The idea is a new one, and It Is said 
to be most cleverly worked out. One 
Eastern critic said of it: "Had Conan 
Doyle with his faculty for keeping 
you guessing as to what would happen 
next, and W. W. Jacobs, with his 
skill for developing perplexing situ- 
ations, collaborated, they could not 
have devised a more uniquely enter- 
taining narrative than "His Nerve." 
Tile fact that Mr. Fletcher is present- 
ing It, is a fairly good guaranty 


One of the great favorites of the 
vaudeville stage has gone Into "the 
legitimate.' "The legit" as Mrs. Nora 
Bayes Norworth understands it. is not 
a serious affair. She and her husband. 
Jack Norworth, have concocted a play 
called "Little Miss Fix It," in which 
they appeared in New Y'^ork this week 
under the management of Werba and 

that the prouction will be adequate. 

Five former members of the Ladles 
Fadettes' Orchestra of Boston will 
present the act of second Importance 
on next week's bill. "The Muslkal 
Girls" Is the manner In which they bill 
themselves, and all five members of 
the company were formerly soloists 
with the Fadettes. Mary Wilczek, the 
violinist, is the wife of Franz Wilczek, 
at one time violin soloist with the 
Thomas orchestra. She later toured 
the country with her husband, appear- 
ing In concerts, and then became 
concert mistress of the Fadettes. 
Itosalle Jacobohn, the cellist, ia a 
daughter of the former concert master 
of the Thomas' orchestra. Gleanor 
Piper the cornetlst, was a Fadette 
soloist for five years. Edith Swan- 
Corbett was the only woman who ever 
appeared as a soloist with Reeves' 
American band. She is said to be a 
woman of much more than ordinary 
beauty and has been called the Lillian 
Russell of vaudeville. Last, but not 
least, la Estelle M. Churchill, the 
comedienne of the company, and also 
the drummer, the pianist and a voca- 
list. These five clever women give an 
act that is said to be highly entertain- 
ing and of real musical worth. 

A good Idea of the act presented by 
Miss Lotta Gladstone, the third act on 
the bill, la gained from the following 
criticism which appeared recently in 
the New York Times: 

"Lotta Gladstone Is a girl with a 
laugh so Infectious as to be absolutely 
irresistible. Good nature radiates from 
beneath a hat, to trim which all the 
many hued flowers of the millinery 
shops have been culled. Miss Glad- 
stone is a monoiogist, whose principal 
purpose Is to simulate a talkative coun. 
try maiden, and she docs it to perfec- 
tion. She also gave several Imitations 
of character types and their natural- 
ness evoked prolonged applause." 

Brown and Ayor will contribute a 
neat singing, talking and dancing act, 
with a planologue, as their share of 
the entertainment. 

Thirteen tours of the Orpheum cir- 
cuit ought to be a sufficient guaranty 
of worth for a vaudeville entertainer. 
That Is the record of James H. Cullen, 
who is now completing his thirteenth 
tour of the circuit. He will present his 
monologue on next week's bill. Mr. 
Cullen has played engagements during 
twenty-four consecutive years In the 
vaudeville theaters of Chicago, and can 

firobably boast of as large a following 
n the West as any performer now on 
the stage. He calls himself "The Man 
from the West." He gives a mono- 
logue of the old fashioned type, but 
with new material every year, and 
among the old time vaudeville patrons 
there 13 no greater favorite than "J Ira" 

Joe Jackson, who calls himself "The 
European Vagabond," comes from Ber- 
lin with a unique and attractive bicycle 
performance, which Is said to be one of 
the best "single" bicycle acts In vaude- 

The seventh act on the bill will be 
presented by Mons. Gerard and Mme. 
Hut Ell. who call themselves "The Iron 



PriKllla and the Umbrell»— (Oramatfe) 


A Republican MarHage — (Dramatic) Vitor^ph. 

Who Gets th« Order— (Comedy) Editon.

With a big military novelty as the 
feature attraction, the show at the 
Empress commencing Sunday matinee 
is one that should meet with the ap- 
proval of all. 

The vaudeville theater patron de- 
mands novelty and the offerinK of the 
U. S. A. boys "is one of the latest nov- 
elties before the public. The first scene 
of the act represents the camp of the 
r. S. Infantry In the afternoon. The 
U. S. A. boys then present a series of 
drills. Including: a fancy drill, bayonet 
drill and a drill with the regulation gat- 
llng gun of the Ignited States army. 
This gun is capable of firing 1,000 shots 
a minute. In the course of the gatllng 
gun drill, they will introduce for the 
(Irst time "Dlmlnl.ehed Numbers," Illus- 
trating In case of warfare the position 
each man would take In case the gun 
crew was shot down one by one. After 
these drills, they go through one of the 
prettiest evolutions In army tactics, 
and that Is guard mount. 

Tlie second scene shows the fortifica- 
tions of the enemy, with a warship at 
anchor in the harbor and it can be seen 
ttasning Ardois signal lights, when fin- 
ally an American battleslilp enters and 
there Is a naval battle. The scenery in 
this act Is very elaborate and the action 
is very thrilling. The average American 
has very vague ideas as to military and 
naval maneuvers and this act, besides 
being very beautiful to look upon. Is 
Instructive as well. The U. S. A. boys 
have appeared before some of the 
greatest milltar-- experts In this and 
foreign countries and they have been 
pronounced as being as nearly perfect 
In their evolutions as it is possible for 
a body of men to become. These boys 
work with a speed and precision that is 
marvelous and each seems like a cog in 
a well oiled machine. 

As a special feature, the Rathskeller 
trio, composed of Messrs Mitchell. Wells 
and Lewis, will offer rollicking rag- 
time. Mr. Lewis presides at the piano 
while Messrs. Mitchell and AA'elis do 
most of the singing. Ragtime has for 
a long time oeen popular and each 
year seems to grow more into favor. 
Tlie Rathskeller trio have been rag- 
time 8 strongest advocates in vaudeville 
and In all the cities in which thev have 
appeared they have taken the audience 
by storm, -vt first thev present a 
serious song, and then thev lure the 
audience into a laugh, then applause, 
and then a tumult of laughter at rat- 
tling good rough comedv and good 
music. Their act is one that pleases 
and leaves the audience In a nleasant 
frame of mind ,and the only objection 

to their act nas been that it is not 

Bissett and Scott, "The Hello George 
Boys," are dancers of national reputa- 
tion. To the average vaudeville patron, 
a dancing team means Just a plain 
every day dancing team but Bissett 
and Scott got away from the conven- 
tional and execute numerous steps that 
are original with themselves. There 
are thousands of dancers In the theat- 
rical business but there are but few 
that rank with these clever boys, It Is 
claimed. They feature their team 
dancing and their chair danc^ is one 
of the most difficult tap effects ever 
offered in vaudeville. 

An act that Is very novel and out of 
the ordinary Is the offering of Sprague 
and McNeese. They offer a skating 
spectacle which is entitled "A Study 
In Black and White." Both have mas- 
tered the difficult art of trick roller 
skating and they perform the most 
difficult feats upon the elusive rollers 
In a graceful and artistic manner. It Is 
said. Their work covers a wide range 
and they perform all of the ordinary 
and a great many extraordinary feats 
upon roller skates. They work In an and graceful manner at aJl times 
and their novelty should prove popu- 
ular during the coming week. 

As the extra feature for the week. 
Luttrlnger Lucas an dcompany will 
present "A Girl of the West," from 
the pen of H. D. Cottrell. The theater- 
goer who enjoys Intense drama of true 
Western life will take the keenest de- 
light in this playlet of the prairies. 
There Is nothing of the blood and 
thunder element in this actlet but it 
has gripping vitality and stirring 
heart Interest that are both sane and 
true of tlie life of the plains. Mr. 
Luttrlnger. who has been prominent in 
the support of Maude Adams in 
"Peter Pan." Macklyn Arbuckle in "The 
Round-I'p," and other distinguished 
legitimate stars, is seen In the role of 
a miner and his exact portrayal of 
this character has won him praise from 
the most noted critlcLs. Miss Lucas Is 
equally as clever in the role of a 
Western girl. The following Is a 
notice from the Utlca Dally Press: 
"One of the best bills the Hippodrome 
has ever offered is headed by Luttring- 
er-Lucas company In "A Girl From the 
West." This Is undoubtedly one of the 
best one act plays that Is on the stage 
today. It has strong situations. Is full 
of quick and energetic action, and 
through all there Is a charming love 
story and an abundance of humor. It 
touches the melodramatic Just a bit.

at Odeum and Lyric 
Theaters for Next 

New programs of photoplay will be 
presented at the Odeum anc Lyric the- 
aters next week. "Priscilla and the 
Umbrella" will be the feature photoplay 

at the Odeum and "The ATay of the 
Transgressor ' at the Lyric. 

In the former two young men have a 
tempestuous time fighting f >r the good 
graces of Priscilla. She succeeds in 
ridding herself of one of them by a 
clever subterfuge, which brings the 
second to her feet and proves liis 
worth, while the former is shown up 
In his true light. 

The story of the feature film at the 
Lyric is told as follows in i.he advance 

Bill Bronson marries a Western girl 

and takes her to an Eastern city. wher« 
thev make their home. Bill soon tires 
of the bonds of matrimony and begins 
to neglect the little woman who has 
given up all to share his lot. A chlia 
is born to them, but instead of soften- 
ing Bill's nature Is seems onlv to irri- 
tate him. and he takes up with eyii 
associates. Dissipation soon loses hlnj 
his position and he sinks lower and 
lower until he is persuaded to become 
a thief in order to live without manual 
toll, a thing he abhors. 

The com plications that arise '^^J** 
now on are intensely interesting, hold- 
ing the spectator spellbound until th» 
climax is reached, in which Bill Is re- 
moved from the nsth of those whose 
happiness »ie would blight, and the 
story ends leaving little doubt In the 
minds of those who witness this pow- 
erful picture sermon that "the way of 
the transgressor is hard." 

The other pictures at the Odeum will 
be- "A Republican Marriage," a dra- 
matic film telling of an Incident of the 
French revolution, and 'Who Gets the 
Order?" a comic film telling.of the flght 
for an order between two traveling- 
salesmen and the efforts they make to 

land it. ^ T 1 

The two remaining films at the Lyrio 
will be "Her Adopted Father." a dra- 
matic film telling of the events In the 
life of a fisherman's daughter, and 
"April Fool." a big comedy film show- 
ing the pranks of some children on All 
Fools' Day. . _ 

There will be a new lUustratea sonr 
at each theater during the week. Con- 
tinuous performances are given every 
afternoon and evening. 

Another big feature art has been 
booked for next week at the Happy 
Hour theater. The "La De l>a (Sirls" 
took well during the past week, but 
next week the feature act will be "The 
DInkv Dorum Girls." including Lysatt 
and Fair, and Howard and Boyd, re- 
cently of the William Watson com- 
pany and "The Isle of Bong Bong. 
They will pre.sent "A Trip to Clilna-

In "The Man Who Owns Broadway," at the Lyceum, Sunday and Monday. 


Think of a '"show" lasting six hours. 
This was the actual running time oi 
tlie entertainment at the Winter Gar- 
den when the final dress rehearsal was 
given. Allowing for waits. which 
wouldn't come after the performance 
began running smoothly, it meant that 
fully one hour of dialogue, song or 
dance had to I'e "cut." And cut It was 
so that now the show runs slightly less 
than three hourj and forty-five min- 

Thi-«? is the continental idea of varl- 
etj' — "come when you may." It took 
prodigious labor to make the Winter 
Garden what It is and in the opinion 
of J. J. ishuhert. who has personally 
supervised not only the construction of 
the theater but the making of the 
show, it was better to have too much 
than too little. 

How anri where to cut was a perplex- 
ing que.«tion. F«-rtunately there are no 
star.s at the Winter Garden, so that 
when this and that principal was asked 
to drop certain songs, condense cer- 
tain scenes, abbreviate monologues, the 
-staKe manager's word was accepted 
then and there without bickering. As 
a matter of fact the entire bill was 
completely changed around. The bal- 
let, in which M'lle. Dazie appears, was 
second on the program. Now it con- 
cludes the performance. The Chinese 
opera comes first and then Tortajada, 
the Spanish dancer. She is followed 
by the eleven-scene mu.-<icai comedy. 
"La Belle Paree," which runs till long 
after 11 o'clock. 

After "La Belle Paree" comes a gen- 
uine treat In tiny Mizi Hajos. who In 
white tights conducts the orchestra 
while sixty girls, similarly attired, go 
through variou.'! marches. 

One of the odd things about the bill 
Is that an intermission comes as late 
as 11:;?0. But the audience seems to 
understand and there are as many 
promonaders at this hour as is the case 
earlier in the evening,

Sam Bernard has never been able to 
overcome the glare of the footlights 
that make it imposible for him, in 
looking out Into the auditorium of a 
theater, to clearly distinguish faces, 
even in the front row. By Intuition, 
he feels the pulse of his audience and 
temperamentally acts accordingly; the 

contour of a person Impreses him, how- 
ever, if the contour hapens to be ex- 
ceptional. During his New Y'^ork Ca- 
sino run of "He Came From Milwau- 
kee," Mr. Bernard noticed two men who 
had aisle seats in the front row on one 
side of the house; they were in those 
seats at every performance, and had 
been steady attendants for moi-e than a 
week before the comedian remarked It. 

On coming off the stage one night, 
he said to Louis Harrison, "Have you 
noticed those two men in the front 
row? They are here every night, and 
even at matlnee.s. They must be stuck 
on the show for fair." 

Mr. Harrison a.sked the location of 
the seats to make his own visual ob- 
servation. At the conclusion of 
act, he said to Bernard. "I've found 
who those two men are." 

"Have you?" said Bernard, "111 
they are rich old codgers who haven t 
anything to do but go to the theaters. 

"Not much," said Harrison, "they're 
the French horn players. -There isn't 
room for them In the orchestra pit, 
and those seats are set aside for them 
at every performance." 






Which WiU 

Be Seen at 

the Lyceum Soon. 

Richard Croker', tlm' once political 
leader of Tammany hall, stood at his 
favorite window in the Democratic 
club of New York one fine afternoon 
last week, and. while feasting his eyes 
upon the gay panorama of Fifth 
nue, dlscoarsed upon "the new 

"We have our New South over on 
this side," he said, "and I've seen the 
new South grow. But you have heard 
nothing here about the New Ireland, 
which I am seeing grow. It's not the 
same Ireland it was twenty — yes, even 
ten — years ago. It has taken on a 
new life and has started all over again 
to develop into the richest, most pros- 
perous and contended part of Eu- 
rope." " . , . 

The veteran politician's eyes glowed 
with enthusiasm when he said this, 
and there was a note of yearning in 
his voice as he added: 

"And how beautiful Ireland is! It 
Is always green, and it is ever rest- 
ful to the eye. I have traveled a bit 
In my time, and I know of no spot 
on the earth as beautiful as Ireland. 
I am dving right now to get back 
there. I'll be there again within three 
weeks, and then I'll be happy." 

Depicts the AVoaderful Changre. 

Mr. Croker's rapture was occasioned 
by his visitor having shown him an 
excerpt from a speech recently de- 
livered in the house of commons by 
Winston Churchill on the difference be- 
tween the Ireland of today, intellectu- 
ally, socially and Industrially, and the 
Ireland of 1886, when Gladsone made 
his first great fight for home rule, and 
of the astonishing changes that have 
been wrought in the people since the 
pa.ssage of the land tenure act. 

"Mr. Churchill doesn't tell the whole 
story, no, not even half of it," declared 
Mr. Croker, after carefully scanning 
the excerpt. "I dont believe the 
annals of the human race show such an 
awakening among a whole people as Is 
now going on In Ireland as a direct 
result primarily of the restoration of 
sanity to the Irish themselves. There 
Is no comparison at all between 
Ireland of my boyhood days and 
Ireland of the present. . ^ ^ 

"It is with the era of the last twenty 
years only that a comparison can be 
made. In that time I have seen with 
own eyes and enjoyed with my own 


that rivals any 



heart a development 

tale of fiction. , . ^ , 

"In that time social order has taken 
the place of anarchy, prosperity 
succeeded poverty and liappiness 
driven out misery. 

Homeii 'WMbln Il«nc1i of the Poop. 

"Under the new land law no poor 
man need be without a home of his 
own in Ireland — a home that belongs 
to him and that be can bequeath to 
his heirs. '» . ,. 

"Dismls.sing the harrowing recollec- 
tions of the miserv and poverty of the 
Ireland of my boyhood, let us come 
down to so short a time as twenty 
vears ago. Even then two or more 
ifamilles lived in a single hut with a 
mud floor — and this they had to share 
with their pigs and goats. , , , 

"Now every family In rural Ireland 
lives In a modern house of its own, 
bought by the government and paid 
for by the owner in rent so Tow that 
no able-bodied man can complain of 
the cost as a hardship. 

"All of this marvelous change has 
been brought about by the new land 
law passed by the British parliament. 
Under that law, If you are a poor man 
in Ireland, and I have more land than 
I actually need, you can apply to the 
local board that constitutes a part of 
the Irish land commisijion and have a 
part of my surplus iicres set aside 
for your use and ownefshlp. The gov- 
ernment will buy the land from me at 
at a value appraised by the board, 
and turn it over to you after putting 
up a one-story house for you at a 
cost of about $2,000. 

"You owe me nothing. Tour entire 
Indebtedness is to the government. Y'ou 
pay out of your cropn or other earn- 
ings to the government every year 
what amounts to a minimum of 2>^ 
per cent interest on the total. 

BuylBS OH the Inntalmcnt Plan. 

"In other words, you pay about |50 
a year rent for your house and the 
same proportion on your land. Tou 
can pav more every year, if you care 
to. As Boou as the government gets 

back what it paid out for you the 
property is yours. 

"Why, in the last two or three years 
the government has put eight of that 
kind of tenants on my own land, five 
miles out of Dublin. Mark you, the 
government did not ask me if I want- 
ed to sell these eight different pieces, 
of about an acre each, to the tenants 
who now occupy them. Each of them 
let the local board of the land com- 
mission know that he wanted an acre 
of my land with a house on it. There 
was no argument about it. The board 
simply appraised each parcel in turn, 
and dispossessed me in favor of the 
poor man who needed it." ^ ^., _„ 

"And didn't you kick about this? 
Mr (broker was asked. 

"Bless me, no!" his voice boomed 
out in merry laughter. ''It would 
have done no good had I kicked; and 
besides I didn't want to kick. There 
was no kick coming to me. I own five 
hundred acres, minus the eight or so 
that have been taken from me, and 
that was more land than I actually 
need. The tenants on it now are 
hard working men, and they are rear- 
ing respectable and happy families. 

"That is so much better than the 
poverty and misery and crime of the 
Ireland of my youth that I am only 
glad that the new dispensation has been 
ushered in by the present land laws. 
Each has a pretty little garden around 
his house, and flowers now grow where 
rank weeds used to grow. 

IfonHFS for Day Laborer*. 

"This class of tenant, you must un- 
derstand, are not farmers. They are 
day laborers. But If one acre can taken by the government and 
turned over to poor tenants, larger 
tracts can be taken by the same pro- 
cess. These larger tracts, from twenty- 
five acres up. are cutting up the great 
estates of Ireland and converting 
them rapidly into small farms. It is 
this that is making Ireland happy and 
prosperous. For the first time in cen- 
turies the Irish people know that by 
work and good order they can own the 
soil on which their oppressed ancestors 
for generations tolled, without hope of 
reward, for absentee landlords. It is 
telling not only in the increased pro- 
duction of Ireland and the content- 
ment of the population, but also in the 
growth of the population. The figures 
show that emigration from Ireland 
has dropped remarkably in the last ten 
years. The people are staying at home 
because they are coming into the land 
they love." 

"in the meantime has the attitude 
of England toward Ireland undergone 
a change?" ^ ^ ^. 

"You have put the cart before the 
horse," Mr. Croker said, with a whim- 
sical smile. "The attitude of Ireland 
has changed toward England. ^^S- 
land is slow to change. But Parnell- 
Ism has taken the place of Fenianisrn 
among the Irish people. Instead of 
dynamite and the dagger, they are 
now using enlightened argument and 
are appealing to the of fairness 
of England. Fenianism is dead; Parnell- 
Ism Is more vital than when the doc- 
trine of patience and peace was 
preached bv its founder. As a result 
the people have gone to work, and they 
are making the glorious old island blos- 
som like the rose." 

Then Mr. Croker made a startling 
announcement. "If," he said, as If 
measuring his words exactly to suit 
his thoughts — "If Ireland were not un- 
der a foreign flag, my advice to the 
young man in crowded America, es- 
speclally the East, would be a para- 
phrase of Horace Greeley's advice forty 
years ago, when I was a young man in 
New York: Go to Ireland, young man.' 
It is a poor man's land. 

"All we need now to fill Ireland s 
cup of happiness to overfiowing Is 
home rule, and well get that very soon 
now Bv home rule I mean a parlia- 
ment for Ireland, just as Canada and 
other loyal possessions have."

United Doctors Say Diiliifh Man 

May Become Richisst Man 

in tlie World. 

"Things move pretty fajt when they 

do move, ajid within a ft w years Du- 
luth may lay claim to having the 
richest man in the worll. So many 
elements of success deiend, not so 
much on environment, but on the in- 
dividual," said Dr. Duck-vorth of the 
I'nlted Doctors In an Interview yes- 

"A few years ago," continued Dr. 
Duckworth, "I treated for nervous 
trouble a man who wa;i in a mer- 
chandise store doing a gjod business. 
This man was a verj' faithful worker 
trusted by hl;» employers 
management of the store 
the employer luund it nec- 
absent himself. When he 
under my treatment he con- 
to me that nothinir but his In- 

and was 
with the 
esary to 

ability to assume the whole respon- 
sibility of the store keit him from 
being taken in as a i»artner. He 
stated that his boss, w lo was well 
along in years, wanted to retire and 
wished him to take full charge, but 
he had not the ambltloi to assume 
full responsibility. The strange thing 
about this man was thet he looked 
the picture of health. He would 
never be picked out as a man suf- 
fering from anything worse than a 
good appetite. But he was extremely 
nervous, had spells of despondency 
and self disgust and was a regular 
pessimist, lie had ruintd his health 
by youthful excesses and indiscretions 
and now had no confidence in himself 
and was afraid to take thie risk of the 
store management in fear that he 
might make a failure of it and lose 
the position he had. 

"I have found a great many people 
like this in my experience — people of 
vigorous constitutions who have not 
the moral courage to work out their 
own destiny — people intended by na- 
ture to lead, but who because of 
some nervous weakness, are left be- 
hind in the race. It is jretty evident 
that this life is a race between the 
strong and the weak. It is a race 
where the prize goes to the person 
with strength, courage J^nd ambition 
to get there. And the person who 
does not feel the call to force his way 
into the crush Is going to be left be- 
hind. Our United treatment cured 
the clerk of his trouble and the am- 
bition which he lacked A-as not long 
in showing its return. The vital 
energy which flowed Irto his veins 
and brain within a few weeks after 
he began the treatment made a new 
man of him. He took charge of the 
business, proved to his employers that 
he was master of its details, and 
within a short time ha was given 
half interest. 

"Our United system of treatment 
will put new life into a body ex- 
hausted and debilitated. It will pre- 
pare any per.son for a buttle for suc- 
cess by charging the neives with the 

chance to be- 

Rockefoller. If 

It matters not 

Minnesota or 

fire or ^igorous energy and youthful 
vigor. Our system of treatment will 
turn back the hands of time for old 
people by renewing the vigor of 
youth in their veins. One old man of 
seventy-four says he feels as young 
as he did at forty after using United 
treatment for only four months. 

"The history of our world's greatest 
financiers show some striking illus- 
trations of the fruits of strenuous 
enterprise. It shows that most of 
the people who are now dominating 
the bu.slness world began life as the 
sons of poor parents without any 
better start than millions of others 
had and will have. There are only a 
few of our rich men who were born 
rich. Wealth and prominence hav« 
come with the expenditure of great 
energj', and anj- man who can and 
will hustle has a good 
come twice as rich as 
that be his ambition, 
whether he lives In 

"Y'oung people who find they are 
wanting in self confidence, who 
shrink from meeting people because 
they fear they will not make a good 
Impression, will find by the study of 
themselves that the trouble is only a 
lack of nerve force. HuiUl up your 
nervous energy by our methods and 
the nerve force and self confidence 
will come. People in almost every 
state in the T'nion who have taken 
the United system of treatment are 
examples of vigorous energ>-, strength 
of character, and ambition to dare 
and accomplish big things. 

"Imagine the persons depres.sed by 
disease and weakness, downcast. 
hopeless, ill-natured,, despond- 
ent, absent-minded. Inattentive, unat- 
tractive. How can such a person 
hope to get on in the world? Every- 
thing is against him. They not only 
have not the energy to help them- 
selves, but they repel people who 
may have it In their power to throw 
something In their way. fllve us per- 
.sons broken down in spirit, gloomy, 
despondent, unambitious or lacking 
confidence in themselves; let us place 
them under our treatment, and In 
three months' time we will have thorn 
world-beaters. This weak-hearted dis- 
position is nothing but weak nerves, 
and our treatment taken dally at your 
home will overcome It In a few weeks. 

"I heartily agree with President 
Eliot of Harvard University, who re- 
cently said in a lecture to students: 

" 'So far as I have seen, there I" 
one Indispensible foundation of life 
and health. A young man ought to 
be a clean, wholesome vigorous ani- 
mal; that is the foundation of every- 
thing else, and I hope you will be tn 
all things, nothing more.' 

"All persons who lack the energy 
to dig their way to success may have 
the way pointed out to them by the 
United Doctors, who can be con- 
sulted at their offices on the third 
floor of the Columbia building. As 
you know," said Dr. Buckworth to the 
reporter, "we acept no Incurable 
cases and we reserve the right to re- 
fuse any case that, in our Judgment, 
Is beyond help." With this remark 
the doctor ended the interview.

Farland had tilings all his own way 
last night In liis battle with Maurice 
Bloom, the Chicago Glietto boy who 
has been coining to the front recently, 
and the battle ended in the eighth 
w^lien Bloom was knocked out after 
having been against the ropes or down 
In nearly every round. 

The first three rounds were une- 
ventful until the middle of the third, 
when a straiglit riglit to the stomach 
by Bloom, shook McFarland into ac- 
tion and he rushed his man to the 
ropes with hard rights and lefts to 
the face. In the fourth Bloom became 

froggy under a pair of rights to the 
ace, and in tlie filth the gong saved 
Bloom from a knockout. In tlie sixth 
McFarland had Bloom on his knees 
for an instant, but Bloom was gamely 
taking punishment and jumped up, but 
was puslied to the ropes again. In 
the seventh Bloom took more punish- 
ment and again was piled on the ropes 
when the bell sounded, and the end 
came in the eighth, when a left to the 
chin sent Bloom down for the count 
of four, and when he staggered to 
his feet, another in the same place

him if McFarland would weigh in at

manager answered and announced that 
the lightweight limit was at 133

The 1910-11 basket ball season just 
com.pleted at the Central high school 
was a very satisfactory one for th» 
players and rooters alike. 

Sixteen games were played. Central 
winning thirteen, and three were lost 
by very small scores. 

Capt. Harris and Johnson were the 
chief basket throwers and with Osman 

at center formed a good offensive trio. 
Solheim and Jeronimus played con-

season and each contributed several 
baskets a game to increase Central's

Annual Meeting of Duluth 
Boat Club— On the Use of 
Pure EngUsh — "Doc's" 
Fame Spreading— "Bob" 
Browning and the Sport 


HE annual meeting of the 
Duluth Boat club has 
been set for the first 
Tuesday in May. For 
some years past this 
gathering has been one 
of the events of the sea- 
son. The bunch meets, 
renews old acauaintances and the sea- 
son is lined up. The social features of 
this event have become quite as im- 
portant from the fact that the carnival 
is ahead of the cli>b. 

Not until the election of the four 
department heads has been accom- 
plislied will very much be known of 
the plans that will be carried out by 
the captains for the present season. 
This is one of the reasons why the an- 
nual election of officers will be an 
Important matter. 

Nothing so far has been done in re- 
gard to arranging the games of the 
tennis department. The same goes 
for the sailing department. A general 
line on the activities of the rowing 
department of the club is known at 
the present time from the business 
arranged last season. The dinner at 
the Commercial club, Monday evening, 
will also give additional information 
on this department. 

From the general outlook there will 
be few changes in the four depart- 
ments or in the officers of the club. 
The men experienced in the business 
of rimning the club in the past should 
be left in charge when the need of ex- 
perience is one of the essential re- 
quirements of running a big water car- 

Attention is called here to the din- 
ner of Monday evening, for it will start 
the season off with the right kind of 
spirit, or at least should, and it is 
' especially iniportant that the members 
i of tne club interested in the sports of 
I the season should lend the assistance 
I of their presence, for every one can 
help, whether he takes part In ath- 
letics or not. 
; It also might be mentioned here that 
1 the sale of tlekets will close today. 
; Those who desire to attend can secure 
' tlielr tickets from Albert Ames, sec- 
' letary of the club, or from any of the 
department captains.

I On the Use of Pure 

the retort of one of the baseball 

The man who had been telling his 
friend of the pure English used by 
some of the baseball players, bought 
and scratched his head and left. 

Rising Fame of Dear "Doc." 

UR own Doctor McNulty has 
been asked to officiate in the 
coronation festivities that will 
be held up Winnipeg way be- 
tween Pal Brown of these 
parts and one Jack White of 
Chicago. The fight means 
to the Hibbing boy, and it also 
boy from Chicago, who is bl03- 
on the pugilistic horizon as 
real classy boys of the coun- 

to the

Chicago crowd, ever ready 
the motives of the other 
a distrust in the coming 
they will not exactly get 
best of the argument, and 
they have asked the Du 

luth man to officiate. They know he 
knows the game and Is on the square. 

That is a very nice compliment to 
the doctor. He is known as one of 
the best referees In this part of the 
country. That that sweet old gang 
of Chicago should trust him is a very 
good boost for him. Any time the 
Clilcago bunch says a man will do 
for it, that man has to be pretty nearly 
there in sporting affairs. 

And speaking about this fight, which 
Is carded for the first of May, It will 
be by far the most important battle 
that has been fought by the Hibbing 
boy. Until this past winter. Brown 
lias been content with taking on tho 
boys of this vicinity. His defeat of 
"Chuck" Larson of Chicago, one of the 
real tough ones, gave him confidence 
and reputation. Then his benling of 
PJddie Greenwald has attracted the 
attention of outside promoters to hio 
growing fame. His victory over the 
tough boy from AVIsconsin made the 
White match possible. 

A victory over White possibly means 
an invasion of the East. There is a 
great curiosity around these parts to 
see Brown matched against one of the 
boys with real standing, and for that 
reason the outcome of the fight with 
White will be followed by the white 
lieat of Interest by the fans in this 
city and on the wide ranges.

key swats Kid Paul on tlie nose and 
sends him to the cleaners, immediately 
there is conveyed to your mind just I 
what happened. Ajubiguity Is chased 
to the tall woods. You know what 
happened and there is no guessing. 

Again you read that one Merkle is 
a 'bonehead," or is a "bug" or can't 
hit 'em on the inside, and there is no 
doubt in your mind. Immediately you 
know that the sad Mister Merkle 
does not think fast and when you 
throw 'em close to his bean he is very 
liable to strike out or hit a weak one 
to the infield. 

Then there are the ponies, the nags.

are sometimes called the gallopers, the 
rompers or the coin-carriers. There Is 
not the least doubt what is meant; 
running horses are under di.scussion. 
The breed has not been running very 
much since foolish young men have 
been forbidden by law to give their 
earnings to the bookmakers. 

When you read that Prince Fonso, 
or that once great old mare, Yale 91, 
made the field looked like a string of 
gravel cars going up grade: or that 
Joe Tambien caught the field running 
wild on the turn and slipped In on the 
rail In the stretch and kicked mud In

once that some horse made some other 
horses look as foolish as a man called

The men who do the coaching are 
important cogs in the baseball machine 
that is to grind out victories. They are 
animated by a twofold purpose. 

They must make the most of every 
successful effort at the bat and on the 
bases, taking advantage of every mo- 
mentary weakness of the opposition to 
further their own cause. 

They must never allow enthusiasm 
to lag. but must keep the players kcved 
up, regardless of temporary success or 

Particularly is this true of the coach 
stationed at third base. At some stage 
of almost every game this man must 
decide instantly whether a scoring 
chance is presented. To do this he 
must know his men and their oppo- 
nents. He must prepare in advance for 
an emergency. When the time comes 
he must act without hesitation. 

When I am on the coaching line I 
am kept silent until we have a runner 
on base. I may do something to let 
my boys know I am hopeful, but the 
rules bar vocal encouragement of the 

A batsman becomes a runner. Sup- 
pose we say he singles. The next man 
sacrifices. Occasit>nally on this plav 
the runner may take two bases, but 
tnis can be done only when the infield 
plaj-s carelessly. 

We have a man on second and one 
out. A safe hit. and the run Is the 
logical hope. I take It for granted the 
batter will get that hit. If he doesn't 
we can hardly hope to get the runner

with the advisability of holding second.

Whisky and Other Stimulants 

Often Given to the 


The death of the mare Spes Nostra 
and the suspension of Trainer Guy 
Gray bring the "doping" evil once more 
into the public eye, but just how gen- 
eral the practice has become is known 

only to those on the inside. Thirty 
yeaVs ago, the doping of race horses 
was a thing unknown. Today It is 
general. A prominent race horse man 
remarked the other night: 

"If every man who dopes horses in 
these days was ruled off the turf, there 
would be very few men left to train 
horses and racing would die a natural 
death. 1 have doped them myself, and 
so has nearly every man making pre- 
tension to win races. If they will but 
tell the truth. It is only in rare cases 
or when some accident occurs that the 
truth comes out and somebody is pun- 
ished. But I will guarantee you that 
there is hardly a race run In these 
days in which there are not four or 
five, and perhaps more, doped horses 
among the starters. 

Hard to Detect Drasa. 

"It is almost impossible to detect 
its use, and it is only when there is 
some organic trouble with the ani- 
mals that It becomes dangerous and 
this Is more likely to be the case with 
a mare than with a horse or gelding. 
If Spes Nostra was doped, and to the 
superficial racegoer it certainly looks 
like she was, then there was some- 
thing else besides dope that made the 
mare crazy and resulted In her death." 

In the old days, 'the days of heat 
racing, stimulants were often resorted 
to and wblskj; was often fflven a tired 

have a great thrower or a weak one — 
I plan accordingly. , , ^ 

The hit comes. It is just over third 
and the outfielder Is a poor thrower. 
While the ball is rolling I motion my 
runner to try for the plate. 

The crowd expects him to be thrown 
out. The play is close, but the run- 
ner slides in ahead of ths ball. Mean- 
time the batter has been sent to sec- 
ond by the coach on first. The crowd 
thinks we are lucky. As a matter of 
fact It was a play that would not 
vary a fifth of a second in a dozen 

The third base coach n-ust keep con- 
stant watch on the infi<dders, with a 
runner on second. The runner watches 
the ball. The coach must warn him 
when an opponent slips behind him. 

Every baseball crowd likes clean, 
legitimate coaching — coaching free 
from senseless yelling blackguarding 
pitchers and the like. I believe we 
could improve the gamo by allowing 
the coachers more latitude, particu- 
larly where the game drags along In- 
ning after inning without men getting 
onto the bases. 

If, at such times, the coaches could 
hand a line of encourajrement to the 
batter, it would show that hope was 
not lost, and carry the Impression that 
the team behind was trying, and game. 
Further, I would not bi* surprised to 
see the effect of such coaching appar- 
ent in the score. 

The present coaching rules were 
drafted when players were far less 
under the control of the umprles than 
they are at present. There is almost 
no "danger of abuse if Tiore latitude 
Is allowed. Last year tvo umpires in 
the American league p« rmitted clean 
coaching of batters on sccasion. The 
result was more Interest and closer 

horse after two or three hard fought 
heats had been run, but this was done 
openly and with the knc wledge of the 
men In the judges' stand. Nothing 
was thought of it. In a race of three 
quarter-mile heats betiveen Grismer. 
Our Friend and several others at 
Washington Park, awa} back in the 
'SOs, Our Friend was (?iven a quart 
of whisky just before the deciding 
heat, and. as Kd Corrigan remarked 
at the time: 

"He .drank It like a irue Kentucky 
gentleman, so he did." 

And it was this quart of whisky that 
enabled him to finish out one of the 
most stubbornly tought heat races ever 
run over the track. 

Dwyer Upsets a Coup. 

Many amusing tales are told regard- 
ing dope and Its effects, and the horse- 
men laugh over them often when to- 
gether. One day, a few years back, 
Dick Dwyer was startirg horses over 
one of the Chicago tracits, and It was 
noticed that he averagtd six minutes 
at the post in each rac*. The owners 
of a certain horse had ihis down fine, 
and one day they timel the dope so 
that It would work in .lust that time, 
and they played the horse heavily. 

On this occasion, ho'vever, Dwyer 
sent the field away almost at the first 
attempt and it was not until 
was over that the dope aegan 
and then the horse went on 
five miles before he coild be 
The trainer, a grizzled old Irishman, 
looked on, and then lemarked with 
an oath: "Begorra. that bates me. 
I wish to hlvlns that Dwyer had bruk

so I do."

night In the first grappling tournament 
ever held between conference teams or 
between any universities of the West, 
although the sport is popular among 
Eastern colleges. 

There will be three bouts, the team 
winning two of them will be declared 
the winner. An exhibition match will 
be held between freshmen of the two 
schools who are ineligible under con- 
ference rules. Both teams are said to 
be in excelhnt shape and a good ex- 
hibition of skill and endurance is ex- 
pected. If tonight's meet is 8ucce.«sful, 
It may mean the adoption of wrestlinjf 
by the conference. 

The light heavyweight match will be 
staged first with Bodenhafer of Indi- 
ana, opposing Matchers of Illinois. In 
the middleweight class, which will be 
put on second. Cochrane of Indiana will 
grapple with Serrell of Illinois, these 
two to be followed by the lightweights.

nois. The exhibition match will be put 
on by two featherweights. Teter repre-

Dr. N. B. McNulty of this city, one

fight at Winnipeg, which is scheduled

backers of White that resulted in the 
Duluth man being chosen. The Chi-

might get the worst of any ruling, were 
there not an absolutely square man In 
the ring, and this square man has 
turned out to be the local referee, who 
is believed to be one of the most 
competent judges of boxing in tlie 

It is believed the fight between 
Brown and White will be one of the 
greatest ever held in the Northwest. 
The Chicago boy is said to be awfully 
fast and clever. It is not believed be 
possesses the sting that is carried by 
the Hibbing boy, and for that reason 
the backers of the range man are look-

that fighters of the present day will

and Jim Flynn. Only two are 30 — 
Jem DrlscoU and Rudolph Unholz. 

Of those past the acknowledged pe- 
riod of decadence. Cyclone Johnny 
Thompson is the oldest. Sycamore, 111., 
was the first training quarters of the 
cyclonic one, 35 years ago. Thompson 
is the oldest ring fighter of the present 
time. However, he didn't start as early 
as some of his competitors and has 
only been in active conflict nine years. 

Next to Thompson Is the champion, 
Johnson. Tlie negro has participated 
in the sorrows and Joys of mundane 
e.\lstence for 34 years. Johnson has 
come the closest to Fltz's record. He 
was 32 when he won the title from 
Tommy Burns.

when the fame of his brother began to 
permeate his being.

Tried to Sign Willie Mitchell and 
Joe Jackson. 

There are two men on the Nap roster 
whom Charley Murphy tried in vain to 
secure for the Chicago Cubs — Wllllo 
Mitchell and Joe Jackson. When Willie 
was a student at Mississippi Agricul- 
tural college. Murphy used considerable 
of his persuasive powers In an effort to 
Induce the Sardls boy to sign with 
Chicago, but WllHe refused to sign un- 
til he had finished his collegiate career. 
Then Murphy allowed him to drop out 
of sight, and by the time Chicago had 
put In a draft for the southpaw, 
Cleveland had bought him from San 

Had Joe Jackson been the property 
of the New Orleans club, Cleveland 
might have had to bid $10,000 or more 
for his release, as Charley Murphy was 
ready to offer Magnate Frank of the 
Pelicans that much for the great hit- 
ting outfielder. But lucky for Cleve- 
land. Jackson was the property of the 
Athletics, and Cleveland managed to 
get hlin through the deal that sent 
Bristol Lord to the world's cham- 

Chicago could use both men this year. 
In fact, Willie Mitchell would have 
been a handy southpaw for Frank 
Chance last year. Willie won twelve 
and lost eight games for Cleveland, a 
second division team, while Pfelster, 
the Cub's southpaw, did not pitch 
enough games to get In the official av- 
erages. Neither was he good enough 
for Chance to retain this year. As 
for Jackson, he Is a better man than 
any of the trio of gardeners owned by 

"The methods of the McGraw players 
have ever been such that a second visit 
from them to most any community Is 
not looked forward to witli pleasure, 
and the time is not far off when the 
National league will have to take 
cognizance of the fact. This thing of 
engaging In brawls on the slightest 
provocation may have suited the times 
some years ago, but nowadays ball- 
players are supposed to be men of 
much higher caliber than before, 
though the advancement in the stand- 
ard of the men engaged in the game 
on the New York team seems to be 
slow to Improve."

umpire, will scout for the Cardinals

bat and to field your position. Manager 
Clarke of Pittsburg has sold Twlrler

curves, but as an Infield worker ho is 
a member of the awkward squad.

"Coddy" Winters, the Cleveland 
hockey star and a baseball player 
of ability, has written to The Herald 
stating that Darby O'Brien's recruits 
are the fastest bunch of youngsters he 
has .seen for a long time. Coddy has 
been out to the practice games a num- 
ber of times and likes the performance 
of the recruits. 

According to the story sent by Win- 
ters, the Irish Orator has lined up the 
very fastest of the Cleveland young- 
sters, and that city is pretty well 
known for the fast article of ball 
played by the semi-professional teams. 

O'Brien feels pretty well satisfied to 
date with the showing of youngsters, 
according to the conversation he had 
with the star hockey player. There 
are a lot of players to report as yet, 
but with the material at hand, I'atrlck 
Henry believes he has the foundation 
of a scrappy, fast and hustling team. 

In the opinion of Winters, Dave Cal- 
lahan, the sensational outfielder of last 
season's champion Kau Claire team, 
will not stick with the Cleveland Naps. 
Dave played some great baseball for 
the Cleveland bunch last fall, but 
Coddy believes he will be disposed of 
to Toledo or to Columbus. 

From the article of ball played by 
Callahan last season, after the close 
of the Mlnny season, many in these 
parts believed he would stick up in 
the big show. 



What has become of Tim Hurst, 
whose entire front monicker is Timo- 
thy Carroll? Well, Tim Is basking 
along iHe "Great White Way." which is 
the main street In little old New York. 
Tim Is out of baseball — that is, the 
major league end of It — probably for 
all time. The cause of his retirement — 
which was forced — was Eddie Collins, 
the star second baseman of the cham- 

ftion Athletics. Eddie said Tim spat 
n his (Collins) face: Tim said he did 
not; some backed Eddie and the tin 
was tied to Tim. 

Thus ended Tim's career as a major 
league umpire. 

lias Plenty of Coin. 

Tim cared little for the loss of his 
Job, tor he is well fixed in this world's 
goods, but he didn't and doesn't like 
the blot that bespatters his career, and 
then, he lost an argument. This is 
something that galled Tim, for in all 
the twenty years ho officiated as an 
arbiter he never lost any squabble 
that he was mixed up in. The dis- 
charge of the veteran indicator handler 
did not lose him a friend, even though 
the evidence presented to President 
Johnson of the American league ap- 
peared sufficient cause for dismissal. 

The fans have missed and will miss 
Tim Hurst, umpire. The players did 
and wU miss him, even though they 
used to rave and tear their hair when 
they thought he "fluffed" a close de- 
cision. Tim is and will be missed by 
the scribes, for rainy days the witty 
Irishman had a fund of stories. 
Well of Good .StorieH. 

Hundreds of Interesting stories have 
been related in which Tim always 
played a nromlnent part, and baseball 
nlstory has yet to record where Tim 
finished second In any of his debates — 
except, of course. In the final.

Things broke badly for Hughes early 
In the season before last, and he fianlly 
was sold to Minneapolis. One day be- 
fore Tom's departure from the hot 
Southland to the cold winds of the 
North he was working his best, but no 
matter what he served the opposing 
batters seemed unable to connect for 
anything less than a single. Tim Hurst 

was umpiring and Tom und Tim had 
several arguments over .'arious inci- 
dents of the game. About the sixth in- 
ning at the earnest solicit ition of Man- 
ager Cantillon, Tom hied himself to the 

By the time the game was over 
Hughes had donned his street clothes, 
and as it liappened got on the same car 
with Hurst. The car was crowded with 
fans, and Tom decided to have a little 
fun at the expense of Tim, who was 
busily engaged reading a paper. 

"Forgot your glasses today, didn't 
you. Tim?" asked Tom, -^rlth a large 
grin thrown In. 

"Nope, decided I didn't need 'um to 
see what you had today, " was Tim's 
reply, as he continued his perusal of

Just then it occurred to Hughes tliat 
he had forgotten something and he left

Football Star to Head Qiunt 

and Joe Boyle Leads 

Ball Team. 

"Dutch" Jeronlmus was elected cap- 
tain of the 1911-1912 basket ball team 
at a meeting of the Central players 
Fiiday. The players decided upon red

Joe Boyle was elected captain of

bers of the 1910 team. 


Packey McFarland is a much more 
convincing boxer than a controver- 
sialist. Tlie Chicago fighter is admit- 
tedly clever and entitled to plenty of 
verbal bouquets, but he is handing 
himself qult«» a large llorlst establish- 
ment when he maintains that if Wol- 
gast quits the game the champloniship 
crown properly belongs to him. 

In reality the title will then belong 
to the gentleman who can win it, bjr 
beating all the rest — and to none other. 

It's not even quite clear that Mc- 
Farland Is eligible to try for this 
glory, even. For it's whispered — 
through a megaphone — that he Is not 
a lightweight. but a husky welter- 
weight. McFarland admits that he 
can slip down to 133 at 3 o'clock, which 
is not at all according to ringside 
weight standards. However, be al- 
leges that Erne, Gans and Lavlgue all 
won or lost champloniships at 186 or 
over. Gans beat Erne, weighing 136 
pounds at 3 p. m., or about 138 at ring- 
side, he urges. 

Might be true, Mr. McFarlend. But 
because Jack does wrong it doesn't 
make it right for Tom, Dick and 
Harry to follow suit. 

Who Set the Market 

But, after all, who fixed these stand- 
ards of ours that so seldom are lived 
up to? Why Is the 122-pound mark 
the featherweight limit here and not 
in England? Why do they let light- 
weights weigh 136 abroad and only ISS 
(ringside) here. 

I'erhaps, deeper down, there is an 
argument for Packey In that there are 
really no hard-and-fast weights set 
for the various limits, because none 
has authority to name them. Of late 
years the ringside figures have been 
generally accepted as follows: 

Bantamweight lOS pound* 

Featherweight 122 pounds 

Light welKht 13* pounds 

Welterweight H2 pounds 

Middleweight 158 pounda 

Heavyweight over 158 pounds 

But the history of these champion- 
ships shows that only In the bantam- 
weight has the limit been approxi- 
mately maintained. McGovern was re- 
sponsible for shifting even this class 
scandalously. In his early days. He 
also boosted the featherweight to 12« 
pounds and even higher. Scarcely a 
lightweight, up to the last five years, 
has fought at the 133-pound ringside 
weight, while there has not been a 
really and truly welterweight fighter 
In a decade. The welters all try to 
cut themselves down to 135 pounds, like 
McFarland. where they can "slip It 
over" on the legitimate lightweight 

The middleweight limit has been 
shifted permanently. When Tommy 
Rvan scrapped for It, he won It at 154 
pounds. It has, within the last six or 
seven years, been moved up to 158 
pounds, and Langford. Ketchell and 
that kind have even fudged on this 
figure, more than once. 

McFarland a Welter. 

Coming back to McFarland, he Is 
legitimately a welterweight. But belns 
just a shade too fragile to meet some 
stronger boy who might come Just 
within the welter maximum, he Is try- 
ing to crowd his way Into a class of 
really smaller men. 

McFarland's welterweight build real- 
ly gave him a vltcory over Moran; for 
he had the weight, height and reach 
that the 136-pounder, a legitimate 
lightweight could not overcome. 

The time has come when Kngland 
and America should get together and 
agree on class weights, interpretations 
of (Jueensberry rules and the condi- 
tions under which weight limits shall 
be made, ringside, or a few hours 
ahead of the battle. 

The ringside weight is the first thing 
that should be abandoned. It tends 
to bring fl«;hters itno the ring In n« 
shape for fighting.

Have Some Teachers Besides 

Those Passed Up By 

Other Cities. 

Ventilating Systems Not All 

Bad — Board Swamped 

By Reports. 

The April meetJng of the board of 
education same to an abrupt end last 
nlgrlit \v}ien the clerk was preparing to 
read llie report of the medical in- 
■pectors. Director D. E. Stevens moved 
an adjournment and tlie motion ■was 
carried, the report of the medical In- 
Bpeotors being suspended In the air. 
As a matter of fact, the report was not 
Important, containing only some sug- 
fl^estions as to window shades to pro- 
tect the children from an excess of 

A few minutes before he brought the 
meeting to a close, Director istevens 
had burst out in protest against the 
criticisms of tne board and the schools. 

"They have been saying tor some 
time that we are losing all our good 
teachers on account of low salaries," 
he said. "To hear some of the people 
talk, one would think we had no teach- 
ers except those wlio c(>uld not obtain 
positions elsewhere. We have spent 
hundreds of thousand.^ of dollars on 
buildings, and critics say that our 
buildings are inadetniate and defective. 
We have spent thousands of dollars on 
modern ventilating systems, and thev 
Euy that the ventilation in our schools 
Is rotten. 

•As a matter of fact, I believe we 
have about as good a teaching staff as 
could be obtained. I believe that our 
buildings are as good as any buildings 
In any city in tlie United States. I 
believe that our ventilating is as good 
as anv In tiie country, taken through 
the system as a whole. I think that 
most of this criticism Is a strained ef- 
fort to have something to talk about 
and I'm sick of It all." 

Director Stevens' outburst was caused 
by a re-reading and an explanation of 
the report of the medical Inspectors in 
ventilation, which was presented to the 
board at a recent meeting. Director 
Boyer took up the report In connection 
with discussion over a hill for J49.70 
lor stenoeraphlc work in connection 
with the report of Chief Engineer I-^ A. 
Larson. Through Director Boyer's pro- 
test the bill wa.s left unpaid, the board 
evidently believing that the chief engi- 
neer should i>ay for It himself. 
Too Many HepurtH. 

Director Boyer protested against the 
chief engineer burying the board un- 
der a series of reports. He pointed out 
that the engineer first submitted a re- 
port of forty-eight pages, followed 
that up with a supplementary report of 
twenty-four pages and then, errors 
having been called to his attention, 
followed with another report of twenty- 
four pages. Director Boyer said that 
the volume of the reports were uncalled 
for and that the assumption on the 
part of the chief engineer that he was at- 
tacked by the mt-dlcal inspectors in 
their repor on ventilation was a show 
of supersensitiveness. 

"1 have not waded through all those 
reports," said Director Boyer. "I doubt 
if any member of the board has done 
Fo. for 1 don't believe they have time, i 
The reports could certainly have been j 
condensed and I don't believe we should i 
pay a bill of this kind for typewriting 1 


them. The clerk, superintendent or 
any other officer of this board does not 
submit a bill for getting out reports 
and I don't believe the chief engineer 
should do so." 

When Director Stevens defended Mr. 
Larson's reports on the ground that the 
medical inspectors' report called for a 
reply from the engineer. Director Boyer 
took up the medical inspectors' report 
in question. 

"Mr. Lar.son assumes taht he has 
been attacked," said :)r. Boyer. "His 
assumption is unwarranted. The med. 
ical Inspectors are paid to watch out 
for the health of the children. In the 
report they discuss ventilation meas- 
ures and make suggestions as to im- 
provements. They say that Mr. Larson 
should give more attention to other 
things and not give his whole concern 
to the size of coal and water bills. I 
believe that every member of the board 
will agree with them In ihat. 

"The detailed reply of the engineer 
in his supplementary report and cor- 
rected supplementary report was not 
called for by the medical inspectors' 
report. The definitions given by the 
chief engineer, the satirical references 
to statements of the medical examiners, 
the assumption that the chief engineer 
is being attacked, are all insults to the 
intelligence of this board and I believe 
the chief engineer should be called up- 
on to apologize to this board instead 
of our paying a bill for the making up 
of the reports." 

"If there was more harmony be- 
tween principals and engineers at the 
different buildings I believe there 
wouid be no trouble about ventilation," 
said President Magner. "I believe that 
the recommendations of the committee 
on teachers and schools that windows 
be opened when tne principals consider 
the action necessary is a good one." 

The recommendation of the commit- 
tee follows: 

■ We recommend that principals of 
all schools be advised that if. in their 

iudgment the air is not good in their 
uildlng on any particular day, that 
they may request the engineer to shut 
down the engine, and open the win- 
dows each noon hour, or during any 
period of calisthenics. We have spent 
some little time over this question 
during the last month and we And 
especially on days when the sun Is 
shining brightly and the wind blowing 
cold from the northwest, that while 
the rooms on the south side of build- 
ings may be close and warm, rooms on 
the north side of the same building 
may be, if anything, too cold."

Teachers Are Appointed By 

Board for the Coming 


Increase of $50 a Year 

Granted to Nearly All 


Salaries o fall grade teachers were 
raised 150, except the Seventh grade 
teachers, whose salaries were already 
>S00, and kindergarten teachers, who 
were already receiving |7oO, by the 
board of education last evening, the 
list of teachers and the salaries being 
those published in The Herald last 

In making its report, the committee 
on schools and teachers said that, if 

the money should be available, further 
Increa-ses should be granted next year, 
to bring the maximum for Eighth 
grade teachers to $900 and the maxi- 
mum for the grades under the Eighth 
to ?$S50. The maximum salaries this 
year are |85o for Eighth grade teach- 
ers and |8oO for those under the 

The only protest against the adop- 
tion of the committee report last night 
was made by Director W. M. Evered. 
He said that the matter should be 
carefully considered by the board as 
a whole, before the salary increases 
were voted. 

"We must consider the taxpayers in 
this matter," he said. "Taxes are high 
In this city and I don't believe In 
spending money unless we know just 
what we are doing. I believe that 
the teachers who are receiving li>w 
salaries should have their .salaries 
Increased, but some of the higher-paid 
teachers are getting enough. I am not 
In favor of the Increases in the high 
school and for special teachers, whose 
salaries are already high." 

Mr. Evered moved tnat the report 
be laid over for a month, but no sec- 
ond was offered to his motion after 
Supt. Denfeld had pointed out that the 
election of teachers has already been 
delayed a month and the board might 
experience great difficulty in getting 
teachers if the matter should be 
further delayed. 

"There are teachers in plenty to be 
had, but good teachers are scarce and 
we can't afford to lose any time," said 
the superintendent. 'Even the range 
towns have already elected their 
teachers and we are away behind. The 
normal schools cannot furnish their 
best graduates now and other cities 
are engaging the good teachers. 
Further delay would greatlv inconveni- 
ence the board." 

In reporting the Increased salaries, 
the committee on schools and teachers 
referred to the opinion of the attorney 
general, which allowed the board to 
take the $32,000 levied for the equip- 
ment of the Washington manual train- 
ing school from the building fund, 
leaving that amount available for the 
general fund. The committee reported 
uiat money is available to meet tlie 

salary increases for two years, but that 
no money will be available for that 
purpose after that time unless more 
funds are produced by iiigher valua- 

In explaining the fact that the 
Eighth grade teachers are placed in a 
class by themselves under the new 
salary list, whereas the Seventh and 
Eighth grade teachers were formerly 
in one class, drawing higher salaries 
than the teachers in the lower grades, 
the committee said that the reason for 
the former classification has disap- 
peared as to Seventh grade teachers, 
whereas the Eighth grade teachers still 
have special work and increased re- 
sponsibilities entitling them to higher 

The salaries of high school teachers 
and special teachers were increased f5o 
except in special cases, in which great- 
er increases were given in accordance 
with contracts. Principals also re- 
ceived increases of $50, except princi- 
pals in small buildings. 

The increases made in the salaries of 
grade teachers call for an additional 
expenditure of $14,275 and the total in- 
creases amount to about $16,600. This 
does not Include the teachers who will 
be required for the Jerome Merritt 
school and In the domestic science and 
the manual training departments. These 
will call for an expenditure of about 

The board received from the Com- 
mercial club copies of the report of the 
special committee on schools and also 
of a resolution adopted by the execu- 
tive committee asking that the in- 
creases recommended by granted to go 
into effect at the beginning of the com- 
ing school year. 


Alaska Lacks Water Supply. 

The chief obstacle in the way of 
gold mining in Alaska, is the lack of 
water. One fourth of the gold dis- 
trict of Alaska is arid, and mining Is

liquid is as necessary to good health 
as water is to gold seeking. The 
very best in purity and flavor is gold-

Bridge construction crews of Hauser 
& Co., general contractors for all of 
the bridge work of the Duluth. Winni- 
peg & Pacific railway, a subsidiary 
company of the Canadian Northern, 
south of Virginia, are making rapid 
progress. Concrete piers have been 
placed for nearly all of the steel 
bridges and a number of the wooden 
trestles have already been built. Ex 
cept at Munger, where the Canadian 
Northern line intersects that of the 
Duluth, Mlssabe & Northern, no steel 
has been placed on the bridges. 

At Mile 30, a division point on the 
line, the largest and longest bridge on 
the new extension has been built 
across the Cloquet river and is readv 
for the steel. The bridge is 350 feet 
long and is supported by six piers, the 
foundations of which were put five feet 
below the bed of the river. The bridge 
itself is of five spans of 7 feet each in 
length and 9^ feet high, and has a 
clearance of twenty feet. The ap- 
proaches to the bridge are wooden 
trestle work and are 200 feet in length 
on either side. Work on the Cloquet 
river structure was started early in 
February and was not finished until 
the latter part of March. The steel 
spans will be placed as soon as tracks 
are laid. 

Over the Duluth, Mlssabe & Northern 
tracks at Munger, about Mile 19 out 
of Duluth. the Canadian Northern has 
constructed a 130-foot steel bridge and 
the steel on this bridge has already 
been laid. The spans are three in num- 
ber, one seventy feet long and two each 
thirty feet in length. They are sup- 
ported on two abutments and two piers 
of concrete. . 

At Midway one of the longest wood- 
en trestles on the road has been con- 
structed. It Is 700 feet In length. 400 
feet of which is permanent work, the 
other 300 feet to be filled in by trains 
after other work on the construction 
of the new line la completed. This 
was built by Ferrier & Livingstone, 
sub-contractors, who are constructing 
all of the wooden trestles along the 
line. Stewart & Thompson are the sub- 
contractors who are doing the con- 
crete work for the steel bridges. Mid. 
way is at about Mile 15. 

A five-span 240-foot bridge Is ready 
for the steel work at Smithville. mile 
post 5, over Stuart creek. Three of the 
spans are sixty feet in length and two 
are thirty feet long. The work was 
started on Nov. 14 and finished Dec. \%.

at Short Line Park, a permanent 
frame trestle, 555 feet in length, Is now

concrete overhead bridges, but all of 
them have not been designed owin^ 
to difficulties which have arisen be- 
tween the railroad and the fity with 
regard to the placing of posts In the 
streets to support the spans. 

This afternoon the members of the 
common council are inspecting the sit* 
of the proposed crossing at Fifty-ninth 
avenue west for the purpose of form- 
ing an opinion as to whether or not 
the city should allow the road to use 
posts in the streets to support the

Alderman L. A. Barnes introduced a 
resolution to have the streets kept

further action was taken.

The medical Inspectors of the Duluth 
public schools have been provided with 
blanks on whiph they may enter re- 
quests to specialists In eye, ear. nose 
and throat diseases to give treatment 
to children furnished with the blanks. 

The arrangement between the spe- 
cialists of the city and the medical ex- 
aminers, whereby treatment will be 
given In special cases requiring imme- 
diate treatment has gone into effect. 
In the course of their examinations, 
the medical examiners ascertain 
whether the parents of children re- 
quiring immediate treatment by spe- 
cialists are able to meet the expense. 
If they are not, the medical inspec- 
tor gives the child a request to a spe- 
cialist, who gives the required treat- 

The report the medical examiners 
sent to the board last night dealt al- 
most entirely with the matter of an 
excess of light. The glare In a num- 
ber of rooms affects the children's eyes, 
the medical inspectors reported, and 
the suggestion was made that shades 
be provided, which will diffuse the 
light while preventing offensive glare.

A certified check for $1,000, posted 
by J. A. Robert when he bid on the 
construction of the Jerome Merritt 
school was last night ordered forfeited

awarded the contract for the building, 
he was unable to obtain a bond, the

done business having gone out of ex- 

bridge has thirty-seven 15-foot spans. 

At Hay creek, mile K, the first track- 
laying will be started within the next 
few weeks. Steel will be laid In both 
directions. In addition to the steel 
and concrete bridges and the wooden 
trestles, there are a number of con- 
crete culverts along the right-of-way, 
which have been built and are now 
ready for the laying of the steel.

The grading work is done with ma-

and costly engineering feat, and will, 
when completed, represent an expendi-

Mr. Robert made a request that his 
check be returned and at the last 
meeting, the members of the board 
showed a disposition to take that ac- 
tion. Since that time, an opinion was 
obtained from an attorney, who stated 
that the board not only had a right to 
keep the check, but was bound to do 
so, having no right to return it to Mr. 

Director Cobb voted against the for- 
feiture of the check, declaring that 
the board had done nothing to earn 
the money, that Mr Robert had acted 
in good faith and that the case would 
be different if there had been any evi- 
dence of collusion or of bad faith on 
the part of Mr. Robert. Other mem- 
bers of the board held that the opin- 
ion of the attorney left the board with 
nothing to do but forfeit the check and

Grand Forks. N. D., April 8.— (Spe- 
cial to The Herald.) — After being bur- 
led in North Dakota soil for twenty- 
three years a sliver watch in perfect 
running condition has been recovered 
by its original owner, Louis Herman- 
son of Americus township. The time- 
piece was lost when Mr. Hermanson 
was plowing on his tree claim and 
though he searched for some time for 

either side are open tunnels and have 
been completed. 

Entering West Duluth, the line cuts 
across a corner of Fairmont park, 
but in an Inconspicous place. The 
bridges which cross Kingsbury creek 
are handsome affairs, having been con- 
structed of Kettle river brownstone. 
There are three spans, one forty-five 
feet long, one thirty and the other 
fifteen. West Duluth people first 
thought that the right-of-way would 
disfigure the park, but since have had 
their minds set at rest. 

The incline tracks of the Duluth Belt 
line railway cross overhead the right 
of way of the Canadian Northern line 
at Sixty-third avenue west. The line 
of the new road has been depressed 
and the tracks of the belt line com- 
pany raised, giving a clearance of 
about twenty-five feet. A stretch of 500 
feet of the trestle of the belt line 
railway had to be rebuilt last fall to 
meet these requirements. 

Next week, it Is expected that W, 
M. Hauser of Hauser & Co., will put 
several crews of men at work on the 
elevated trestle, which will be nearly 
a mile and a half long and will reach 
from Fifty-ninth avenue west to the 
bay front. Only a portion of this 
line has been decided upon, and that

Minority Leader Arraigns Demo- 
crats as Unfair. 

Washington, April 8. — The first for- 
mal conference of Republican house 
leaders, including representatives of 
the insurgent portion of the party, was 
held vesterday afternoon In the offices 
of Minority Leader Mann. It followed 
a refusal of the Democrats to give up 
any more committee places to the Re- 
publicans or to restore the proportion 
that has heretofore existed between 
the two parties in the committee as- 

After the conference Mr. Mann gave 
out a statement bitterly arraigning 
what he called the "unfair, arbitrary 
and brutal action" of the Democrats in 
trampling the rights of the minority. 
The statement promises a lively Re- 
publican fight to take advantage of 
every possible parliamentary privilege 
to make things hot on the floor. 

Mr. Mann submitted the situation to 
the conference of leaders this afternoon 
and asked whether he should not re- 
fuse entirely to name committees on 
the limited basis of representation 
given by the Democrats. 

It was determined, however, to go 
ahead with the selection of Republican 
members. Mr. Mann stated after the 
conference that absolute fairness would 
be shown the Insurgents in the ar- 
rangements. , . 

In his statement Mr. Mann declared 
that the Democrats of the ways and 
means committee had adopted the pol- 
icy bf making a majority of seven on 
the principal committees, whereas a 
dominant party never before claimed 
more than six majority.

A Skfn of Beatity U • Joy Forever^ 


One of the most interesting features 
introduced Into the work in the pub- 
lic schools of Duluth this year, es- 
pecially in the lower grades, is the 

folk dancing, which was received by 
unusual delight by the children. The 
teachers, too, have hailed this new 
form of healthful exercise, as well as 
amusement, for their pupils with en- 
thusiasm and have set to work to 
develop this feature with a will. 

There is a fascination about dan- 
cing which has attracted boys, girls, 
men and wom^n since the earliest 
days. The barbarians, pagans, Greeks, 
Egyptians, Indians, in fact every race, 
have used the dance more or less as 
a means of expression of Joy, sorrow, 
exaltation, reverence and all forms of 
emotion since the beginning of his- 

The acompanying picture shows 
some of the children of one of the 
primary grades of the Washington 
school in the "Tantoli," a delightful 
little folk dance, under the direction 
of their teacher, Miss Nellie B. 
Stoughton, who has successfully fea- 

tured It In her school work. Most 
of the dances have been learned be- 
fore the opening of the school ses- 
sions in the morning and at noon 
and she says that the attendance in 
her room since they started this work 
has been phenomenal. 

Miss Stoughton gave an exhibtion of 
their dancing at a teachers' meeting 
a short time ago and has been con- 
ducting a class of teachers in the 
work. The teachers dance the same 
little dances, balance on one foot, 
glide, hop and skip as gaily as the 
youngsters and all agree that they 
like to do it. 

. Exorcise aiid Traininc. 

This work has been taken up not 
with the idea of having it take the 
place of the calisthenics which are 
given regularly at each session, but 
as one of the forms of expression 
taught the children similar to the 
games and stories which the children 
have played and "acted out." 

It is splendid exercise, bringing In- 
to play most of the larger muscles 
of the body as well tfts exercising and 
training the mind. Folk dancing In 

the public schools should be con- 
sidered from a standpoint of exercise 
and recreation. The dances involve 
large movements of the trunk, arms 
and limbs. Regular gymnastic exer- 
cises are most essential, too, to offset 
the unavoidable bad effects which 
arise from the constant bending over 
desks, the too often imperfect ven- 
tilation and the other causes that 
produce habits which need the cor- 
rective use of regular gymnastic ex- 
ercises. But these exercises are 
primarily for the body, while folk 
dancing is for the whole child, his 
heart, mind, imagination, as well as 
for the chest, legs and arms. 

Some of the notable effects of the 
exercise of dancing Is the grace of 
carriage which is acquired. Of 
course this is not obtained from any 
short period of training, but the dan- 
cing arouses the interest of the dancer 
and the thought of it remains with 
him and he thinks of it often through 
the day so the helpful points are 
kept in mind and the good effects

This dancing h<U8 been taken up 
extensively in the public schools In 
New Y'ork and other large cities and in 
some cases the roofs of the school- 
houses have been turned over into 
l>laces for the children to dance. 

Among some of the simpler dances 

are taught to beginners art' the "Shoe- 
makers' dance," the "Jumping Jack 
dance," which is a very lively little 
affair: the "Swedish Klapdans," the 
"Tantoli." the "Hansel and Gretel.;' 
the "Loftist Tod" and the "Norwegian 
Mountain dance." Of.couriie there are 
the more intricate dances, harder of 
execution, that follow these dances, 
which are more violent exercise and 
more difficult to learn, but which 
have been worked out with good suc- 

The children will be duncing their 
pretty little steps on the streets this 
summer, and It is hopetl that ulti- 
mately the United States will acquire 
Its own individual national dances 
through the spread of thi? movement

The hiding of the candle signifies the 
period In which Christ was in His tomb

All Minnesota Is mourning the loss 

of William S. Pattee, late dean of the 
law school. He and Dr. Northrop were 
close friends In the twenty-flve years 
of their Joint work and In commenting 
on his death Dr. Northrop said: "Dean 
W. S. I'attee was the flrsi professor of 
the college of law in the Lniverslty of 
Minnesota, and subsequently became 
dean. From the reorganization of the 
law college to the present year he has 
been the Inspiring leader In the work 
of the college, and the Institution as 
It exists today is a monument to his 
faithful and able service. He was not 
only an earnest and helpful teacher, 
but he had high ideals of character as 
well as of learning and he strove to 
Inspire his students with ambition to 
be true and honorable men quite as 
earnestly as to be learned lawyers. 
For nearly a quarter of a century he 
has given his life to the development 
of the law college, and he has made It 
an Institution of high character, one of 
which the graduates are Justly proud. 
His pupils all over the country. In 
active practice of the law, wul be 
deeply saddened by the news of his 
death, and his colleagues and all the 
university faculty will mourn with 
them the death of a true friend as well 
as an able educator."

At a board of regents' meeting a res- 
olution of appreciation was passed, 
lauding In the highest terms the work 
of President Northrop, emeritus, and 
his Immeasureable services to the state 
and university, both as a citizen and as 
an educator. The resolution is In part 
as follows: 

"Cyrus Northrop became president of 
the university In August, 1884, and 
served In that office until April 1, 1911. 
He retired at his own request after a 
successful administration of twenty-six 
and one-half years. It is right that 
there be put on the records something 
of the man and his work. His activi- 
ties have not been confined to the uni- 
versity nor to the field of education. 
No movement for the betterment of the 
state or Its people has been without his 
support. With singular tact but with 
much force he has ever supported the 
right. So manifold have been his ac- 
tivities that a circumstantial recital or 
them would amount almost to a history 
of the state for more than a quarter of 
a century. Future historians will rank 
him with Minnesota's best men — the na- 
tion's best men. His retirement is felt 
bv each member as a perslnal loss. 
He carries with him our best wishes, 
and we, together with the people of the 
state, express the hope that he may 
long enjov the blessings of health and 
contentment, and that we may long 
have him as a wise counselor and 
friend." ... 

Eleven university girls went before

President Vincent wrote an article

community spirit at Minnesota. The

their selection was almost as much of 
ft surprise to the men who voted for 
Ihrm as to the general public. 

The most striking instance of the 

r election of an eleventh hour candidate

course, the nomination of James A. 
CJarfteld for president by the Repub-

Presiiiont Taft's political career 
r-^ally began when he was chosen at 
the eleventh hour for the governor- 
p->neral?hip of the Philippines; the 
fory of how that choice was made by 
I'resldent McKinley is a familiar one. 
F>, too, the pre.sent head of the presi- 
dent's alma mater is to be listed among 
the eminent men of the country who 
©we their distinction to the fact that 
the eleventh hour claimed them for 
|!s own 

In the latter part of 1S9S President 
Timothy Dwlght of Yale announced 
that he would resign, his resignation 
to take effect at the close of the col- 
lege year. He gave as his reason the 
fact that he had reached the age of 70. 
end thought that It was time for him to 
give place to a vounger man. 

The trustees of Yale spent about six 
months looking around for a man (|ual- 
Jrted to fill President Dwlght's position. 
«>f course they thought that they would 
liaA-e to select a minister. Y'ale had 
•lever had a president who was not a 
riinister. But although several emi- 
nent clergymen were suggested, the 
trustees were unable to agree In favor 
<»f any one of them. 

Men who had risen to eminence as 
educators and who were then holdirg 
college or university presidencies, were 
next ron3ider«>d. Several of them were 
regarded with a good deal of favor, 
t>ut btlil the trustees were unable to 
\inlte on any one who had been men- 
tioned. The college year was drawing 
to a clitse when one member of the 
"Vale corporation said: "Whj- not take 
Arthur Twining Hadley, our own pro- 
fessor of political economy?" 

At first the suggestion seemed im- 
j>i>ssible. "Why, F'rof. Hadley is a man 
of science," it was said. "He is a 
writer on railroads and Industrial mat- 
ters. He Is more likely to make a ca- 
Ffcr as the adviser of a great business 
Institution than as a college president. 
And then, too. he isn't a minister." 

Nevertheless, the suggestion quickly 
gained favor, arnj at the eleventh hour 
the trustees agreed that he was the 
man for President Dwlght's place, and 
I'ruf. Hadley became president of Yale 

in June. 1S99, when he was only 43 
years of age. 

The I'nlooked for Promotion of CharleH 
S. Mellea. 

Another powerful personality In New 
England life, who was an eleventh- 
hour man, is Charles S. Mellen, head of 
the New York, New Haven & Hartford 
railroad system. 

In 1903 the death of John Hall made 
vacant the office of president of that 
railroad. The New Haven at that time 
had entered upon that course of ex- 
pansion and absorption of other lines 
that has made it today practically the 
single railroad system of New England. 
Great projects in connection with the 
development of the system were con- 
templated, though not definitely 
worked out, and the selection of the 
right sort of man for president was a 
matter of exceptional importance. 

A number of men were considered 
for the position, those who were most 
mentioned being Percy Todd, second 
vice president of the New Haven, and 
Lucius Tuttle, president of the Boston 
& Maine. William Rockefeller was for 
Todd. He had been very favorably at- 
tracted by Todd's work when the lat- 
ter was general traffic manager of 
the West Shore railroad. No action 
was taken for some time, however, 
until it became a matter of absolute 
necessity that the office should be 
filled, as matters were pending that 
demanded the attention that only a 
respon.slble executive head with full 
authority could give. And then, when 
the board of directors did meet to 
choose a new president, they selected 
neither Todd nor Tuttle, but Charles 
S. Mellen. then president of the North- 
ern Pacific railroad. It Is generally 
believed that the director who pro- 
posed his name was J. Pierpont 

Perhaps It was a question with Mr. 
Mellen whether he should accept. Ho 
had been president of the Northern 
Pacific since 1896, and was greatly 
interested in it and projects for its 
develoi>nient. But when he learned that 
he would have a free rein as president 
of the New Haven system, he accepted. 
Under Mr. Mellen's direction, the New 
Haven policy of absorbing other New 
England lines has been carried almost 
to Its logical conclusion, so that now 
it has annexed even the Boston & 
Maine, by which it reaches the most 
easterly section of New England, and 
the Rutland lailroad, by which it gains 
an entrance into Montreal. 

The CaMe of Julius Kruttnrhnltt. 

Julius Kruttschnitt is now prac- 
tically chief of staff of the great 
Union Pacific railway system; he is 
to the president of the Union Pacific 
what the chief of staff is to the com- 
manding general of an army. He Is 
even more than that, for he not only 
sees that orders are executed, but has 
the right to initiate orders himself. 
He was formerly frequently referred 
to as "the right hand of E. H. Harrl- 
man." Nowadays ho is sometimes 
spoken of as the Von Moltke of the 
Union Pacific, as his position suggests 
in many ways comparison with the 
great Prussian general who worked 
out and executed the plan of campaign 
that resulted In the overthrow of Louis 
Napoleon and the establishment of the 
GJerman empire. Y'et if it had not been 
for an eleventh hour choice, Mr. Krutt- 
schnitt might have been a professor 
In a technical Institution, Instead of 
becoming a commanding figure in the 
railroad world. 

Mr. Kruttschnitt comes of a family 
characterized by great Intellectual 
ability. He was born in New Orleans 
fifty-seven years ago. An uncle. Judah 
P. Benjamin, attained great distinction 
as an orator and statesman. Mr. Ben- 
jamin was a member of the United 
States senate before the Civil war, re- 
signed his seat when hostilities began 
and became secretary of state in the 
cabinet of Jefferson Davis. Penniless 
at the close of the war, he went to 
London, where for several years he 
sui>ported himself by writing. The 
fact that he was born under the British 
flag in the West Indies, enabled him 
to claim English citizenship. He sub-

sequently became eminent as a bar- 
rister in London. 

As a mere boy, Mr. Kruttschnitt dis- 
played great ability for engineering, 
and after his graduation from Wash- 
ington and university, lie expected 
to make civil engineering his profes- 
sion, although he had some thought 
also of teaching. Opportunity came 
first In the line of educational work 
and he accepted a position as teaclier 
in a school near Baltimore. 

Four or five years later the promo- 
ters of a railroad which was to bo 
built across Louisiana and Texas were 
looking for an engineer to take charge 
of the construction work. The con- 
tracts were ready to sign, and the pro- 
moters were in a hurry to have the 
work begun, as there was likelihood 
that other lines might soon open up 
the same territory. But they were 
unavoidably delayed by their inability 
to find the right man for the position 
of engineer of construction. They had 
offered the place to a number of men 
whom they regarded as qualified for It, 
but all were tied up by engagements 
and could not accept. 

Finally, some one said to the promo- 
ters: "There's a young professor in a 
school near Baltimore who might do." 
The result of this suggestion was that 
the position was offered to Mr. Krutt- 
schnitt, and he did not hesitate long 
before accepting It. Ho did his work 
so well that he was advanced very 
rapidly, and he became under C. P. 
Huntington, chief engineer and general 
manager of the Southern Pacific. Mr. 
Harriman had occasion to observe 
what Mr. Kruttschnitt had accom- 
plished for the Southern Pacific, and 
was greatly impressed hy It. It was 
for that reason that he took Mr. 
Kruttschnitt over to the Union Pacific 
and made him his right hand man 
when he undertook the reorganization 
and development of that great system. 
Kleventh-Hovr ChoU« By J. P. MorRmn. 

The late Alexander J. Cassatt was 
surprised at a game of golf by the 
news that he had been selected for 
the presidency of the Pennsylvania 
railroad. No less surprised was 
George F. Baer In the spring of 1901 
when he learned that he had been 
picked for the presidency of the Read- 
ing railroad. The story of Mr. Baer'a 
elevation to his present position Is a 
striking tllustration of the fact that 
the eleventh-hour choice, though nec- 
essarily made in haste, often lights 
on the man who Just fits the Job. 

When he was only 28 years of age. 
Mr. Baer became counsel to the Phila- 
delphia & Leading, but he severed his 
connection with the Reading some 
years afterward, when he was a di- 
rector, as a result of disagreement 
with President McLeod regarding the 
best policy for the road. Mclxiod 
wanted to extend the system into New 
England and obtain an entrance Into 
Boston, and he started a fight with the 
New Haven road for the possession of 
he Old Colony system. Baer could 
not subscribe to that and so he quit. 

He had already, as a lawyer, at- 
tracted the attention of .T. Pierpont 
Morgan, and after he left the Reading 
he was retained by Mr. Morgan as con- 
fidential legal adviser in the state of 
Pennsylvania. It naturally followed, 
therefore, that when Mr. Morgan un- 
dertook the reorganization of the 
Reading, which will remain one of 
ills most brilliant achievements, taking 
the svstem as it did out of a position 
of bankruptcy and placing it on a 
solid tinanclal basis, he should call on 
Mr Baer to assist in the work. 

In the early part of 1901 Mr. Morgan 
was called upon to give much thought 
to the selection of a president for the 
Reading system. Naturally, It was un- 
derstood that a railroad man would 
be chosen. But of the various men 
trained in railroad operation and man- 
agement who were suggested, none 
seemed quite to fit the conditions. The 
necessity of making a choce finally 
became really urgent, without, how- 
ever, any suggestion having been made 
that appealed to Mr. Morgan as the 
right one. The eleventh hour had 
come when one of Mr. Morgan's 
friends and business associates said to 

"Why Is it necessary to have a rail- 
road man for this place? There is Baer, 
who has been your legal adviser in 
Pennsylvania. He knows the Reading 
system thoroughly, and there probablv 
is no man better qualified to take this 
office than he Is." 

•"That is so," assented Mr. Morgan. 
■'I hadn't thought of Baer." 

And the flquestion of the Reading 
presidency was settled then and thei-e. 
Two Eleventh Hour Choices by Mc- 

It Is probably only In exceptional 
cases that the men who are appointed 
to the powerful commissions that have 
recently become a striking feature of 
our system of government are those 
first chosen by the appointive power. 
.Most frequently the man appointed is 
one whose naine occurred as a second 
or third thought, and commonly 
enough as an eleventh hour sugges- 

When President McKinley, in tna 
latter part of 1898. took up the matter 
of appointment 9f the first Philippine 
commission, he concluded first of all 
that the chairman should be a well 
known educator. The first name that 
occurred to him was that of Nicholas 
Murray Butler, who was at that time 
dean of the faculty of philosophy of 
Columbia university, and for at least a 
decade had been recognized as one of 
the leading authorities in ths country 
on education and pedagogics. Mr. Mc- 
Kinley knew Dr. Butler personally, an! 
needed no one to Inform him as to Dr. 
Butler's qualifications for the work to 
be done. It is understood that a tei:- 
tatlve offer of the chairmanship of the 
commission was made to Dr. Butler 
and declined by him, for the reason 
that he felt called upon to aid In the 
building up of the university in its 
new home on the heights overlooking 
the Hudson river. The president then 
considered appointing President Eliot 
of Harvard, but abandoned that idea, 
as it became known to him that Presl- 

dent Eliot, all other considerations 
aside, would regard his age as barring 
him from accepting. 

Mr. McKinley had considered several 
other names when that of President 
Jacob Gould Scliurman of Cornell uni- 
versity was suggested to him. 

'1 know Mr. ijchurman," Mr. McKin- 
ley said. "He would fill this position 

While the president felt that in 
naming Mr. Schurman, he had made a 
most excellent appoiatment, it Is none 
the less true that it was a case of 
choice at tlie eleventh hour. 

Another member of the Philippine 
commission was an eleventh hour se- 
lection. Mr. McKinley was anxious to 
have on the commission a man possess- 
ing, besides other qualifications, an in- 
timate knowledge of the Spanish lan- 
guage and Institutions. He looked 
around for many weeks without finding 
the sort of man he wanted. The time 
had almost arrived when, he felt, he 
.should have to make the appointment, 
whether he had found the ideal man 
for it or not. It was then that the 
name of Bernard Moses was suggested 
to him. 

The president found on Inquiry that 
Mr. Moses, who has been professor of 
history and political economy In the 
University of California since 1876, was 
an authority on matters relating to 
the Spanish occupation of America, and 
exactly filled the bill. In appointing 
Prof. Moses. Mr. McKinley doubtless 
congratulated himself that he had de- 
ferred the choice to the eleventh hour. 
A Chief Justice and « Governor. 

Two of the must dramatic Instances 
of choice made at the eleventh hour 
are so recent and conspicuous that 
they must be In everybody's mind. 
Most striking of all was President 
Taft's selection of Associate Justice 
Edward D. White for the position of 
chief justice of the supreme court of 
the United States. It had been very 
clearly understood for some time be- 
fore the meeting of congress last fall 
that Mr. Taft Intended to name Asso- 
ciate Justice Charles E. Hughes for 
that position. Such was the under- 
standing, indeed, up to a very few 
days before the time when the nomina- 
tion was to be sent to the senate. Then 
It became known that Mr. Taft had 
decided to name Justice White, and 
great was the surprise that the an- 
nouncement of this fact produced. 

The other ease relates to the man- 
ner In which the present governor of

The conference concurred, and the

Emporia, Kan.. Gazette: The growing 
custom of establishing Ananias clubs 
.should be discouraged for the reason 
that It is becoming ridiculous 

If the country had one properly or- 
ganized Ananias club It would be a 
good institution and would have a 
large and distinguished membership. 
But such a club should not be a hap- 
hazard affair and initiation to it should 
be a solemn and Interesting function. 
There is no distinction, no satisfaction. 
In belonging to a fraternal society that 
is open to every comer and in which a 
nomination is equivalent to an elec- 
tion. The way these small, private 
Ananias clubs are run is a disgrace to 
all concerned. One man calls another a 
liar and the latter immediatelv bocomes 
a charter member of an Ananias club 
and Is permitted to wear the re^calla 
and participate In the mystic rites. 

One result of the prevalence of these 
unofficial clubs Is the degradation of 
the grand old name of liar. It is being 
shorn of its dignity. Time was when 
to be a successful liar amounted to 
something. Distinction In that line 
meant that a mnn possessed many ad- 
mirable qualities, including originality

New York state was nominated. The i 
Democrats were certain wlien their I 
convention met In Rochester that the j 
state would go their way in November, ; 
and there was an Imposing array of 
candidates for the gubernatorial nomi- , 
nation There was only one man for 
whom these various candidates were 
willing to step aside. That was Mayor 
William J. Gaynor of New York city, 
and he, w-hen the convention was 
about to meet, refused to permit the 
use of his name. At the eleventh hour, 
when the various booms had become 
locked together, as It were, so that 
there was a virtual impasse. Tammany 
Leader Charles P. Murphy, called In 
the leaders of the up-state delegations 
and said to them: 

"If you up-state men will unite on a 
candidate. New York city will support 

The up-state men found that thej' 
could unite on the chairman of the 
Demociatic state committee, John A. 
Dlx, and so Mr. Dlx was chosen at the 
eleventh hour, and, contrary to his 
personal inclination, was nominated. 
Suggentlons That Made a Governor. 

The nomination of Frank S. Black 
for governor of New York by the Re- 
publicans In 1896 v/as one of those 
complete surprises that' sometimes 
come In politics. There have been some 
very dramatic and exciting state con- 
ventions In the Empire state during 
the last thirty years, but none more so 
than that one held In the great Mc- 
Kinley year, when the Republican can- 
didate actually was not chosen until 
the delegates were in their seats wait- 
ing to give their votes. 

The leading candidate for the nomi- 
nation was George W. Aldridge of 
Rochester. He had a large number of 
delegates pledged to him, though con- 
siderably less than a majority. Ham- 
ilton Fish, then speaker of the assem- 
bly, was his ieadln"' rival. There were 
about a dozen other candidates with 
some following. 

Senator Thomas C. Piatt was then In 
the height of his power. The political 
machine that he had built up was ab- 
solutely In his control and Its power 
was Irresistible. But Mr. Piatt was 
easv In his methods as a leader and he 
let the convention go to ballot with the 
field open. Aldridge led with 227 votes 
and Fish was second was 123. Much of 
the voting was of a complimentary na- 
ture and among those for whom com- 
pllmentarv ballots were cast was Frank 
S. Black, who had been temporary 
chairman of the convention. 

Mr. Black was a new figure to most 
of the delegates. They had heard 
something of him as one of the state's 
delegation In congress, but many of 
them received their first personal Im- 
pression of him when he took the gavel 
as chairman of the convention. What 
that Impression was may be gathered 
from the fact that as soon as Mr. 
Black began to speak some one yelled: 
"What's the matter with young Abe 
Lincoln?" a query which was answered 
by appreciative laughter and cheers. 
The suggested comparison was not 
Inapt. Tall, gaunt and angular, Mr. 
Black In physique Is of the Lincoln 
type. His gestures as he spoke. It was 
noted, were easy but devoid of grace, 
his utterance lyeasured. clear and In- 
cisive. Those who sat near enough 
could see behind the gold rimmed spec- 
tacles a pair of singularly keen gray 
eves. Mr. Black's speech was one of 
those remarkable combinations of lucid 
exposition and argument, pithy sayings 
and biting epithet and comparison for

Kidney Pills had rid me of kidney 
complaint. For months I was both-

I had other troubles and they all 
showed that there was much uric acid 
in my system. When I was feeling 
poorly, I learned of Doan's Kidney 
Pills. I immediately got a box and 
they were just what I required. In a 
short time they cured me and about a 
year ago they quickly drove away a 
spell of backaclre that had come on

it has helped me."

Carlton Connty Inquisitors 
Ldok Into Some Crim- 
inal Cases. 

Carlton, Minn., April 8. — (Special to 
The Herald.) — The town has been 
full of court visitors this week. Judge 
Homer B. Bibell opened the term 
Tuesday. The grand Jury found In- 
dictments against several persons who 
are already in custody and others 
against persons who are not yet cap- 
tured. The names of the Indicted 
ones are not disclosed. The main 
criminal action was to have been 
against Wilho Sari and Arvo Maki, 
the Finlanders, who are In jail 
charged with felonious assault on the 
person of Matt Hill, another Fin- 
lander, who was slabbed in a flght 
with these two at a Finlander gather- 
ing down In Kalvala township one 
night this winter. Hill was at the 
point of death in a hospital in Duiuth 
for several weeks, but recovered, and 
he was to have been the complaining 
witness. He disappeared when the 
trial came on and has not been lo- 
cated as yet. Another criminal case 
is that of George Zimmerman of Clo- 
quet for furnishing liquor to Indians. 
An Indictment has been returned and 
tho case will come up soon. One civil 
case had been concluded, that of Carl 
Erickson vs. The Duiuth Telephone 
Company. The plaintiff brought 
suit to recover damages from the 
company caused by the setting of Its 
poles on his land. The company 
proved that they had set their poles 
outside his fence, and believed that 
they were on the public highway. He 
later moved his fence out so that the 
poles were included on his land, 
which was true. He asked for $200 
damages and the Jury awarded him

Overfatness Condemned 

Fat, or even fattish, women readers 
who want to be in the mode this year 
must understand that the demand is for 
line?, not curves, and govern themselves 

That means OFF with the fat. It has 
become a duty. Many are trying exer- 
cise or dieting: but It is certain they 
will find these methods too slow and 
unreliable. The cheapest and safest 
way to get in form for the Directoire 
mode is by means of Marmola Prescrip- 
tion Tablets. Any druggist (or the 
Marmola Co.. 491 Farmer Bldg., De- 
troit, Mich.) will give you a large-sized 
case of these "elegant little fat reduc- 
ers, containing a good, generous sup- 
ply, for seventy-flve cents, and even 
this quantity should be enough to 
make a decided impression on your ex- 
cess fat. Many have lost as much as a 
pound a day.

from Vennerstrom's home in Michigan, 
Just received, states that the family of 
the dead man are in destitute circum-

arrangements can be secured. The re- 
mains were taken to the Cuyuna under-

lEe Plat Commission's New 
Rule — Speculative Inter- 
est Is Spreading Through 
City— Loan Situation — 
The Summer Hotel — 
Separate House in Demand 
By Renters. 

T_HE plat oommlsslon's de- 
I clsion not to approve any 
I plats unless the lots are 

at least thirty-three feet 
wide and provisions 
made for a small park 
space, was the develop- 
ment most talked of In Duluth real 
estate circles duringr the past week. 
The a'-tlon was met by approval and 
criticism and there is a wide differ- 
ence of opinion among real estate mon. 
iVraonff citizens grenerally, the action is 
almost universally approved. 

Real estate men accept the decision 
eomplacently, as a whole. The park 
provision Is what concerns them pri- 
marily and, although some of them 
tnay not like the Idea, there is Uttlo 
doubt but that the value of any ad- 
dition or division is enhanced by the 
•otting: aside of a square for park 

The provision as to width of lots Is 
of little effect except in initial sales 
of property. Without a supplementary 

§rovlsion as to the space between 
ull'linsrs It is of little effect In pre- 
ventiui? congestion. Lots will be laid 
out with a frontage of fifty feet and 
•win be subdivided and sold as they 
have been In other parts of the city. 
Two or three buildings will be placed 
on lots and congestion will continue 
Unless some means can be devised of 

?reventlng the building of houses close 
ogetht^r as they have been In the cen- 
tral parts of the city. 
• • « 

aTlEUK Is no personal activity 
in the market, although the 
tone continues good and In- 
quiry Is strong. Muflh of the 
Inquiry Is from outside of the 
city and tile preponderance of 
U applies to steel plant lots 
and acres. The l>uluth steel plant Is 
attracting attention all over the coun- 
try and especially In centers where the 
effect of steel plant operations has 
been evident. Sales of lots In the vi- 
cinity of Duluth s new plant continue 
to be numerous and more Inquiry is 
made for acreage In that section than 
could possibly be supplied. 

The speculative Interest, which was 
first api>Ued to the steel plant district 
almost entirely. Is spreading over the 
city. Many of the sales of residence 
Sites in the older .sections of the city 
recently have been to people with spec- 

ulative Intent, for lots In the establish- 
ed residence districts are scarce and 
are constantlv Increasing in value. 

Several good deals in Investment 
property are said to be In the air. but 
difficulty Is experienced In getting the 
parties to the prospective deals togeth- 
er on price. The disposition to antici- 
pate profits is still evinced by holders 
of good investment property. They 
are not anxious to sell and they take 
the attitude that If prospective pur- 
chasers are not willing to meet their 
prices, they will not lose anything by 
holding on. 

TIE loan market Is unchanged. 
Loans In almost any sum may 
be easily obtained on the se- 
curity of Improved Duluth 
property, but there Is little 
demand for loans. The build- 
ing that will be done In Du- 
luth this vear will be almost entirely 
In the way of residences and small 
business buildings. Some small loans 
are made on that account, but big 
loans are not in demand and the loan 
agents have money on their hands with 
no chance of placing it. 

Time was when there was no hust- 
ling to place loans In Duluth. The 
people wanted money and were will- 
ing to pay high rates of Interest. 1 he 
people who want loans now are able to 
demand the best of terms and will be 
readily accommodated on a fair basis. 

• • « 
^^— "^rR old friend, the summer 
I •^ I hotel. Is bobbing up again. 
I \J I Summer hotels have been 
^MwJ built on every rock and crag 
nJWTal on the hillside and on many 
BBBfil sites on Park Point. That 
Is, they have been built In 
the minds of the builders and never 
really took tangible form. The agi- 
tation Is aroused again and with It 
is the suggestion that, Qot a summer 
hotel, but an all-around-the-year hotel 
that would attract a good class of 
family patronage be built. 

G. G. Hartley was said to have some 
such plan In mind some time ago and 
he Is supposed to be figuring on It 
vet, a site near Ninth avenue east be- 
ing considered. Whether Mr. Hartley 
or somebody else goes ahead with the 
plan, there Is certainly room for an- 
other hotel in Duluth — a hotel that will 
cater principally to transients of the 
long-staying kind — summer visitors, 
hay fever patients and people who pre- 
fer a family hotel to the ordinary 
hotels for transients. A first-class 
hotel of that kind should be a mint 
In Duluth. , .^ „ 

There should be business for It all 
the year. If It were located away from 
the street car and railroad tracks. 
"Duluth"s population is greatly Increased 
In summer and the hotels now in the 
city are taxed to their capacity. The 
Holland was erected only a year ago 
and Its business Is already such that 
a four-story addition is contemplated. 
There is only one good hotel off of 
the street car tracks and that la a 
small one. Nobody questions that a 
hotel somewliere east of KIghth ave- 
nue east on a site with a view of the 
lake, near to the street cars but not 
on the same streets as the tracks,

HIS Is the month of the house- 
seekers. May 1 Is the offf- 
clal moving day, despite the 
fact that many people move 
during other months, and on 
May 1 there will be moving 
each year in such volume 
that the van companies will be rushed 
with work and Hooded with money. 

The demand for separate houses Is 
greater this year than it has been for 
years In Duluth and It cannot possibly 
be met by the supply. The home- 
garden idea has taken root; the apart- 
ment house Is falling Into disfavor 
among many people outside of those 
who do not know how long they will 
remain In the city and do not want 
an established home. 

Separate houses will rent at high fig- 
ures this year and there may be slight 
concessions in flat rentals in conse- 
quence of the greater demand for 
homes. Few houses in the suburbs 
,'ire for rent and those who want to 
live In the suburbs are being advised 
to take to the "'Own Your Own Home" 
idea and have rent receipts count as 
payments on deeds and not as waste 

In tlie btislness section of the city, 
there will be several changes but few 
of note. The new buildings on First 
street will attract a number of firms 
which have formerly been located on 
Superior street. The movement east 
on Superior street will also be greater 
this year. There Is no scarcity of 
office room in the downtown section, 
the erection of the Alworth bulldlnor 
last year and the completion of the 
Fidelity building this year relieving 
the congestion in the office buildings.

fl Here's a chance to establish yourself on a ten-acre garden tract so close to the city 
that you can easily come in to work every day, with splendid roads on two sides of 
you, with wonderfully fertile, ENTIRELY STONELESS SOIL, exactly suited to the 
growing of garden truck, small fruits, etc. 

•11 You don't have to quit your job to take this up — put in some spare time; work 
evenings and Sundays, let the wife start that chicken farm she has always 
wanted, let the children grow straight and strong helping, and in addition to 
making a substantial increase to your salary, you will cut your own cost ci living 
'way down (by growing half what you eat) and will be healthier and happier 
than ever before in your life! 

€[[ We have exactly eight of these tracts, adjoining land which was sold a short time 
ago at from $80 to $95 an acre— our land is fertile and stoneless, is sufficientf]^ wood- 
ed to supply all fuel and shack-building needs, while the price is ONLY $40 an acre. 
Fifty dollars down buys a ten-acre tract— balance ten dollars a month. 

This is absolutely the cheapest and best acreage anywhere near the city! 
about it NOW — before the eight have all been snapped up!

Dear Sir: Replying to your letter asking results of my l.ruck gar- 
den this summer. My report will sound like exaggerating but It is the 
truth I have 30 potatoes weighing 60 lbs. raised on ground just cleared 
Jast spring. It was an even acre and I got 135 bushels of marketable 
tubers. I have not sold all my potatoes, but have sold 50 »ushels at 
75c per bushel. 

I had about one-quarter of an acre in onions and sold $3( worth of 
green onions through the summer at 25c per bunch and got IJO bushels 
of large onions. 1 have three onions now that weigh 4 lbs. 7 ounces, 
and sold some at 1 2 per hundred lbs. 

I have 6% tons of timothy hay for which I have been offered $20 
per ton f. o. b. cars, Meadowlands. I have quite a number of herbs and 
perennial plants such as .savory, sage, annls, and corlnder, peanuts, pop 
corn, pumpkins (one weighing 27 lbs.) cabbages (one welghir g 17 lbs.) 

I have not sold much of my truck yet, as I am holding it for winter 
prices, although the market is now good. Yours truly,

range." This great pas- 
ture, covering an area of 
many square miles, was 
•'school land" mainly, 
__^^^_^ which means that the 
schools of the state de- 
rive a part of their support from its 
rental. Part of the pasture belonged 
to the cattleman who "run" his cattle 
there. The "fence-riders" were sup- 
posed to make a circuit of this fence 
every few days, on horseback, to see 
If any of the wires were down, so 
that the cattle could escape. Be- 
sides this their duties were the same 
as those of the cowboys on the open 

The night before Thanksgiving, 
there was a terrible blizzard, a storm 
of Ice and sleet. A cutting wind, 
driving the thermometer to zero, com- 
pelled us to keep the stove in our 
little "shack" at the red-hot point. 
All that night I was unable to sleep, 
because of the cries of the unhoused 
animals on the range, and the shouts 
of the cowboys, sounding above the 
howl and hiss of the storm. The 
cattle had crowded into a horseshoe- 
shaped "break" or canyon with high 
rock walls rising sheer a hundred feet 
on three sides, about a mile from our 
house. Here they crowded and 
trampled each other, while the cow- 
boys, on the rocks above, wherever 
they could gain a foothold, shouted 
and fought them back, hour after 
hour until, just before daybreak, a 
lull in the storm calmed the crazy 
cattle and allowed them to rest. 

In a day or two the storm cleared, 
and I went to the place which I 
found literally heaped with the bodies 
of slain cattle. One poor cow was 
lying among the heap with crushed 
ribs and a broken leg. yet still alive. 
Just then, the "fence-rider" came by, 
and I asked him (for he carried two 
revolvers), as a favor, to shoot the 
poor animal. His reply was: "Oh, 
she'll die In a day or two. anyway." 
And she did. But what do you think 
of the spirit prompting his reply? 
Horrors of the Farce of FeedinR. 
The laws of Oklahoma. I am told, 
compel the feeding of cattle during 
the winter. I was a witness, on more 
than one occasion, to this "feeding." 
and a cruder farce never existed. The 
men came into the pasture with a 
small load of something by courtesy 
called "prairie hay." Had it been 
cut at the proper season, and prop- 
erly cured. It would have been poor 
food, but no such care had been 
taken. As I saw It, and smelled it, 
it was black with rot. and musty, 
rank, and mouldy to the last degree. 
One of the gentlemen of the party ex- 
claimed in horror: "My God! Can it 
be possible that this Is how they 'feed' 
their animals here?" 

One small load of this miserable

Objections WiU Not Be Of- 
fered to Proposed Restric- 
tioDS on District. 

Both Congdon Bills Are Ex- 
pected to Pass the 

Now that the teachers' salary ques- 
tion Is settled, it is expected that the 
two Congdon bills before the state sen- 
ate will go through without material 
change. One provides that the total tax 
levy for school purposes in the cities 
of St, Paul, Minneapolis and Duluth 
shall not exceed 12 mills on the dollar 
in any one year. The other limits the 
bonded Indebtedness of the same dis- 
tricts to 3V^ per cent of the assessed 
valuation and provides that no bond 
Issue shall be made unless It be ap- 
proved by a two-thirds vole of the city 

There was some talk of objection to 
the bond issue bill on the ground that 
the city council should not be given 
supervision of school district bond Is- 
sues. The matter was considered by 
the Commercial club committee on 
schools recently and the committee re- 
ported against the bill. The matter was 
then referred to the executive commit- 
tee, with power to act and that com- 
mittee, having considered the matter, 
decided not to offer any objections to 
the bill. 

Although members of the school 
board consider that the city council 
should not be given supervision over 
them, they have not offered any seri- 
ous objections to the bill, believing that 
any bond issue the board may decide 
upon will commend itself to the mem- 
bers of the city council. Under the 
present valuation of about $41,000,000. 
the bonded indebtedness of the Duluth 
district will be limited to about $1,435,- 
000 bv the bill, while the present bond- 
ed indebtedness is $1,175,000.

among them. But the few stronger 
ones obtained the food, leaving most 
of them Mlth absolutely nothing. The 
human-like moans and cries of de- 
spair with which they followed the 
rapidly-retreating wagon, would have 
moved a heart of flint. This is how 
the millionaire cattlemen evade th» 

During that season there was no 
snow of great depth or long continu- 
ance. A prairie fire burned the 
range black, except in some scattered 
spots, and the cattle wandered back 
and forth unsatisfied, grew thinner 
and thinner, and dropped, here and 
there, from sheer starvation. All 
that winter the water was not frozen 
for more than a few days at a time, 
but there are tons of whitened bones 
along the banks of the Beaver, bear- 
ing mute testimony to the cattle who 
died of thirst when the water froze. 
They were only beef! 

In the spring, besides the cruelty 
of "branding," which is said to be 
unavoidable on the range, there was 
added the enormity of "dehorning." 
Of the awfulness of this practice I 
dare only hint, lest this may be 
deemed unfit for publication! I saw 
the cows, apparently in the most ter- 
rible distress, shaking their poor "de- 
horned" heads, and bellowing plte- 
ously. Some of them soon grew too 
weak to walk and sank where they 
were. I had gained the friendship 
of the cowboys, by .yifts of magazines 
and papers, so I made bold to ask 
one the cause of this new disaster. 
"The flies got to them when they 
were dehorned," was his answer. A 
cow lay close to the fence, nearly 
dead. He motioned to me silently 
and parted the long hair above her 
forehead. I nearly fainted at what 
was revealed. I dare not tell you 
more. Of this herd, several hundred 
died, but some wcra shipped East, in 
this condition! 

Tortare of Cotrs Ijeft Unmllked. 
When a carload of "veal" was 
shipped East, a new horror came. The 
calves were taken by hundreds from 
the mothers, leaving them in full milk 
to suffer unattended. For the suf- 
fering thus caused. I have no words 
of description. I will leave It to the 
imagination of any human mother 
who has experienced similar agony. 
I asked the cowboy why this was al- 
lowed, since many cows died and 
others were seriously injured by this 
fearful means. He laughed. 

"Do you think we keep a cow-hos- 
pital? How'd we get time to milk 
half-a-thcusand cows?" 

I saw his point. Indeed, how could 
they? I asked him and several other 
cowboys in turn, if they would swear 
to the knowledge of the truth of these 
statements. They refused, one and 

"Why, lady," said one,, "I'd lose my 
job. and there's not another cattleman 
would hlie me.". Others said they 
were afraid of libel suits, in which 
the cattlemen would have men hired 
to "prove that black Is white." I 
have been urged to keep this 8tor>- 
silent, for the same reason! 

Of the terrors of the "round-up" 
and the long, thirsty ride In the 
crowded cattle cars, others have 
written and have not been able to 
picture the scenes adequately. The 
most powerful Imagination could not 
conceive of a tithe of what I saw In 
one short year. The dreadful thing 
about this accursed traffic is that peo- 
ple grow so hardened that they cease 
to care, even when they do see and 

Is it possible that the flesh of ani- 
mals treated in this manner is fit for 
human consumpti on? 



Three-Fmgered Star Says 

No Pitcher' Can Win 

Without It 

Three-Fingered Brown, the great 
pitcher of the Chicago Cubs, believes 
that no matter what a pitcher has to 
deceive the batsmen he must have the 
nerve besides. 

"Good curves are great assets," says 
Brown, "but thefb have been great 
pitchers who had haraly enough to fool 
an amateur. Speed? Another grand 
asset. But some of the great pitchers 
didn't have enough speed to break a 
pane of glass. Control? It's a great 
thing to cultivate. But some good twlrl- 
ers were minus the article to a great 
extent. Head work? Great! But what's 
the use of having a pitcher who doesn't 
use his noodle? 

"Then what is the greatest asset a 
pitcher can have? Nerve! It isn't suf- 
ficient when It Isn't backed up. But 
give a pitcher the nerve and anything 
else and he'll be a great pitcher. Ob 
the other hand, let hlra have every- 
thing else and no nerve and he'll be a 
dub. There's scarcely a day when the 
pitcher Isn't called upon to use his 

"It's the one requisite In the make- 
up of a really great pitcher. And I 
don't know a single other qualification 
that is absolutely essential. The 
pitcher discovers that his curve ball 
won't work. The break Isn't there. 
It's up to his nerve. If he has lots of 
it, he may keep the opposing batsman 
standing still until he recovers him- 
self. If he hasn't the nerve, he Is 
In for a beating. So with the fellow 
that depends upon his speed. He dis- 
covers to his amazement that his fast 
ball is without the jump. If he has 
the nerve, he may work along an 
inning or two, or maybe for half a 
game. Suddenly It comes back and 
he's all right. If he hasn't the nerve 
he'll blow. Same way with control. 
A pitcher suddenly goes wild. The 
only thing In th© world that will settle 
him Is his nerve. If he loses that It's 
an ascension. There are times when 

the rule doesn't hold good.

Refusal of Bremer to Speak 

Caused Kraenzlein to 

Hurdle Fasten 

Big Pennsylvanian Was So 

Angry He Lost All Fear 

of Opponent 

Alvln Kraenzlein. coach of the Mich- 
igan track team and world's record 
holder In the 220-yard low hurdles, 
tells an Interesting story of how he 
came to win the world's title In the low 
hurdles — a title which he holds and 
which, judging from the Inability of 
present-day hurdlers to approach his 
mark of :23 3-5, he probably will retain 
for another decade. 

Kraenzlein doesn't tell this story for 
the purpose of boasting; rather the op- 
posite. Kraenzlein Is anything but a 
boaster. He merely told It one day In 
a moment of inadvertence, by way of 
apology for holding the world's record 
for the event. 

At the time — It was back in 1898 — 
Kraenzlein was as big as he now is, 
only more lanky. He had entered the 
University of Pennsylvania the pre- 
vious fall, and, together with Mike 
Murphy, had evolved a new system of 
hurdling, which, while the vogue at the 
present time, was something new and 
unheard of then. 

Kraenxleln'a First BlflT Meet. 

The Penn track team had gone to 
New York city to compete In the East- 
ern Intercollegiate — Kraenzleln's first 
big meet. In the trial heats of the 
hurdles Kraenzlein won without par- 
ticular difficulty, as did Bremer of 
Harvard, who then held the world's 
record of 24 8-6 seconds. When the 
trial heats and the seml-flnals had been 
run, it was found that Bremer and an- 
other Harvard athlete had survived 
the elimination process, while Kraenz- 
lein and another Pennsylvania athlete 
were the others who had quallfled for 
the finals. 

"As It was my first big meet. I was 
nervous," says Kraenzlein in relating 
the Incident. "I had heard a lot about 
Bremer, and I hadn't the slightest no- 
tion m the world that I would beat 
him. My highest ambition was to fin- 
ish second, or oveu thlrdu X conceded-^ 

to myself at least — that Bremer would 
win the race hands down. 

Bremer Refuaea to Speak. 

"While we were standing around the 
starting place waltlns: for the final 
heat I was admiring Itremer, and fin- 
ally I mustered suffic.ent courage to 
go over and extend my hand. 

" 'I am Kraenzlein of Pennsylvania,' 
I said, 'and I've heard so much of you 
that I'd like to know you.' 

"Bremer looked at me a second, then 
turned away as if he hid seen nothing. 
I flushed, then turned white, and 
walked away. I was so angry that I 
don't believe I knew qalte what I was 
doing. The starter called us to our 
positions, but all the time we were 
getting on our marks and getting set 
I dldn t have a single thought except 
that I'd beat him or die m the at- 

"we were off together with the crack 
of the gun, and that's all I remember. 
The next thing I knew Mike Murphy 
was standing by my sifle In the dress- 
ing room congratulating me. He told 
me that I had beaten Bremer; that I 
had lowered the worM's record by a 
full second, and a lot of details which 
I fear were a trifle e:caggerated. He 
always Insisted that, although we 
were nearly together trhen we cleared 
the first hurdle, I beat him so badly 
that when I was finishing he was tak- 
ing the last barrier. 

Sarprlaed at Fast Time. 

"Naturally there wa* some surprise 
when the time, :23 2-5, was announced. 
At first even the timers wouldn't be- 
lieve It. but there wera three of them 
and they all caught me in the same 
time. They said, too, that If Bremer 
could run In :24 3-5 my time must 
have been a full second faster, judg- 
ing from the distance by which I led 
him to the tape 

"While Murphy was -alklng to me in 
my dressing room, there was a knock 
at the door. Murphy vrent to the door 
and there stood Bremer. He came over 
and apologized for hlii insult and. of 
course, I had no reason to be angry 
any longer. It had hurt at the time 
but It was just what I needed to put 
me on edge to run the race of my

ley were unchanged and durum was 
without change. 

Linseed was weaker, May lost 3c and 
July traded at $2.55 for the tirst time 
and was offered down to $2.50. The 
Winnipeg market was weak. 

The wheat market was a scalping af- 
fair ill which neither side had much 
advantage. Fluctuations were swift 
and sharp and traders were kept 
ing. Two elements were at war with 
*aah other and traders had difficulty 
in fathoming their respective strength. 
On one side was the strong cash de- 
mand at the leading Northwestern mar- 
ket reported improvement of flour 
business here and at Minneapolis and 
exports of Manitoba wheat which in- 
duced intermittent short covering. On 
the t.ther side was the continued op- 
timism of crop reports. While alive to 
the opportunitv to bull wheat on the 
revival of casli bu.>«lness traders could 
not forget that within a few weeks the 
bulls will be compelled to get out their 
pocketbooks and settle for a lot of old 
wheat a.s an immense quantity of new 
stnif is about to come on the market. 

The selling on the bulge around noon 
carried values almost to yesterday s 
closing levels and was induced by the 
desire of scalpers on the long side to 
even up their accounts in the face of 
the governments crop report, which i.-j 
expectvd to be bearish and which will 
be issued at 1 o'clock central time, 
Monday. ^ ^ . , 

The weather continues favorable 
both in the Southwest and the North- 
west. The foreign markets were high- 
er on account of the strength at Buenos 
Ayres and unfavorable Itussian reports 
which induced covering by shorts. The 
British crop report wa.s bearish and 
worlds shipments will be reported

\\ heat Takes Tpward Trend, Act- 
uated By Various Reports. 

Chicago, April 8. — Predictions of a 
big decrease in the United States vis- 
ible supply had a bullish effect here 
on wheat. The upward movement was 
helped bv higher cables, although for- 
eign strength appeared to be chiefly 
the result of the previous advance on 
this side of the Atlantic. Improvement 
in cash demand here formed another 
element adverse to the bears. The 
opening was i,4<g»%c higher to a shade 
off. Mav started at 87c to 87 %c. a six- 
teenth down to %(l*Vic up and rose to

Moisture Northwest followed by 
warmer weather caused prices to re- 
act In quite sudden fashion. The close 
was nervous with May at 87c, a net 
loss of a shade. 

Scalpers buying corn on account of 
the strength of wheat lifted the price 
of the coarse grain. May opened a 
shade dearer to a like amount lower 
at 4S'4(&4S%c to 4S'>gC and ascended 
to 48»,2C. 

Falling off In export demand brought 
about a decline. The close was strong, 
however, with May at 48%(&48%, a

Covering of Shorts Sends 
Prices Up Again — 
^ Close Is Firm 

New York, April 8. — The heaviness 
which characterized the tloslng of the 
stock market yesterday was renewed 
at today's opening. Most issues re- 
corded fractional declines on the mod- 
erate degree of activity, with especial 
weakness In Missouri Pacific. 

Increased weakness of the Gould se- 
curities carried the general market 
fractionally lower. Missouri Pacific 
lost over 1 and Wabash-Pittsburg 
terminal certificates nearly 2 points. 
Distillers' Securities yielded 1%. The 
market was hardening at 11 o'clock. 

The market closed firm. Covering of 
shorts put out earlier sent prices up 
briskly in spots, Missouri Pacific mak- 
ing a full recovery.

circular, which was supposed to rep- 
resent the views of one of the big bull 
leaders. Following the advance of the 
earlier week, realizing was more or 
less general, however, and the market 
eased off several points* during the 
early trading, with the active months 
selling a or 3 points under the closing 
figures of last night during the middle 
of the morning.

Chicago Record-Herald of yesterday: 
Flour trade advices from outside points 
were Quite condicting. Those from the 
spring wheat country were optimistic 
and those from tlie winter wheat belt 
were the reverse. Shearson-Hammill's 
Minneapolis man wired that millers 
at report decided imijrovement in flour 
demand. One of the best posted mil- 
lers estimates sales from there yes- 
terday of at least 100.000 bbl and pros- 
pects of same today. President James 
Bell of Washburn-Crosby, in answer 
to a personal mes-sage said their salcie 
had been about the usual quantity, but 
that the demand was much improved. 
Winnipeg wire to Logan-Bryan after 
the close last night read. "Big export 
flour business done here toda.v. Get 
It on good authority that as high as 
80.000 bbl have been worked."
