W. M. George, cashier of the Bank of Hal
lock, is at the Nicollet. "When it comes to
the work of the legislature," said Mr. George,
"our people are Interested in drainage. The
rains of last fall placed the ground on the
Minnesota side of the Red river in such a
condition that it was impossible for farmers
to harvest their crops entirely or to get any
thing like a respectable portion of their fall
work done. The surface water stayed; noth
ing to carry it away. What has been done
in the way of drainage in that section of
the state has brought into market thousands
of acres of flrst-class land on which the
state can collect taxes and realize some
benefit. The digging of one ditch redeemed
four whole townships."

THE CHURCHILL LECTURE
The Seats Will Be on Sale T-mor
The sale of seats for the Winston
Spencer Churchill lecture Jan. 18, at the
Lyceum theater, will open to-morrow
morning at the store of the Metropolitan
Music company. Mr. Churchill is brought
to Minneapolis by the Teachers' Club, but
his lecture is not one of the course ar
ranged by the club. His subject is: "The
Boer War as I Saw It," and he tells in
an effective, straightforward way his ob
servations in the thrilling and interesting
campaign around Lady smith, his experi
ences as a prisoner of war la Pretoria,
ani his return there with the army after
Mr. Churchill Is a man of very positive
views on all subjects, particularly those of
a military and political nature. He be
lives in the war made by England, but
treats the subject in a manner as nearly
impartial as possible, and gives full credit
to the Boer-s for courage, military skill
and manliness. On the other hand, he
criticises severely many things on the
conduct of the English in the war. After
the capture of Ladysmith he published an
interview with General White that
brought down the wrath of the war office.
General White was asked by General
Wolseley to repudiate the interview, but
refused, saying that the interview was
genuine. He was then reprimanded for
speaking for publication and criticizing
his superiors. General White's reply
showed no yielding, saying:
"The interview was entirely correct.
I defended my own reputation, as the
war office showed no concern for it."
NO CHAIRSJN AISLES
I'nexpeeted Order Received at Cross
ley-Hunter Meeting Last Night.
Some of the workers connected with the
Crossley-Hunter meetings were highly
indignant over the appearance at the
meeting at the HennepLn Avenue M. E.
church last evening of one of the assistant
building inspectors, who objected to the
placing of chairs in the aisles. The ushers
thought it wise to yield the point, though
they could not quite see the reason for
the so-called sudden solicitation on the
i part of the inspector's department. As a
j result of the orders of the inspector fully
a hundred would-be r attendants of the
meeting are said to have been turned
away. Interest in the work was sustained,
however, thirty standing for the prayers
and ten professing conversion. To-night's

STRAIGHT OUT TALK
It's an Improvement on the Old,
SO SAYS COL. THOS. W. HIGGINSON
He Believes the Anti-Slavery Agita
tion Fostered the Oratorical
A venerable landmark in American lit
erature and history is in Minneapolis to
day. Colonel Thomas Wentworth Higgin
son, the friend of Lowell, Holmes, Longfel
low, of Wendell Phillips and William Lloyd
Garrison, arrived this morning with his
wife and is at the West Hotel. He re
ceived a Journal man with all the
courtesy of the old school, of which he is
almost the "last leaf."
Born and reared in Cambridge, and a
life-long friend of the great men whose
memories cluster round that spot, Colonel
Higinson Is to-day almost the sole living
representative of the old school of culture,
whose learning rested on foundations broad
and deep. His 77 years rest lightly on
him, and his health seems excellent. He
is taking every precaution to-day to save
his voice for the leoture at the Lyceum
Colonel Higginson will lecture on "Ora
tors and Oratory in America." The lecture
is a condensation of a course which he
delivered at the Lowell institute in Bos-,
ton, and he is to repeat part of the course
at Cleveland, Ohio, this winter.
"I regard the direct, conversational style
of our modern speakers as a great im
provement over the rather academical and
high-flown oratory of my early days," said
Colonel Higginson this morning. "The
prevalence of classical study produced a
Ciceronian style, very fine, but not desir
able for our modern needs. In my lecture
I shall trace the development of modern
style. I believe the anti-slavery move
ment had more to do "with developing the
modern style of speaking than any other
influence. Phillips, Garrison and John B.
Goti'gh I knew personally, and shall tell
about them. I never heard Webster make
a great speech, but I knew him, and shall
speak of him as a man. He was not mag
netic,- but magnificent, a man who always
attracted the public eye. Everett and
Choate were notable types of the old
"No, I shall not discuss contemporary

NOT HOMES OF CONTAGION
STREET CARS AND THE GRIP
The Danger of liifeoticn \o "Worse
in Them Than in Other
Minneapolis doctors disagree with
their brethren in New York that street
cars are responsible for most of the
•'grip" which Is now afflicting the populous
centers of the country. It is an infec
tious disease, say the^Minneapolis M. D's.,
and may be contracted anywhere if the
conditions of contagion are favorable.
Street cars, theaters, elevators in public
buildings, churches, singing societies,
stores, any and all places, in short, where
people are crowded together, there the
"bug" of the "grip" plays his vocation
most assiduously. But to suppose that be
cause an occasional specimen of the
salivatory hog expectorates in a street car
in reckless disregard of the "Don't-spit
on-the-floor - read - the - ordinance" sign,
aches on aches arise from his act, is non
sense. "You can catch the grii> any old
place," the doctors say.
There are at present many hundreds of
cases in the city, and the physicians are
all busy. Most of them have found the
disease of a milder type thau that which
prevailed here in the epidemic of six or
eight years ago. The disease has its
origin in the pernicious activity of the
same "bug" or germ, but it is less harm
ful, or less virulent, as they say.
Many of the school teachers are suf
fering with it, but according to Dr. T. F.
Quinby, president of the board of educa
tion, no serious inconvenience has yet
been experienced in the schools.
"There is a great deal of grip in the
city," said Dr. Quinby. "and the vast
number of teachers and other employes
of the board have not escaped its ravages,
but from my own observations I think the
grip this winter is of a milder type, and
that it yields more readily to treatment.
The fatalities have not been many from
the disease itself, but I am unable to say
sow serious has been the effects follow
ing in the wake of the disease, such as
pneumonia and kindred ailments. As an
infectious disease, crowded street cars as
well as crowded stores, or elevators, j
would offer favorable conditions for its
dissemination. But while we are suffer
ing from la grippe we should not forget
that we are very much beter off than New
