A CLASH POSSIBLE
Park Board and Committee of the
OVER BATHHOUSE LOCATION j
The Question of Who Shall Expend
■ the Money to Come Up-1 : .; .
- Also. :
The council committee on public grounds
and buildings and the park board are to
meet Monday and try to agree on a plan
for expending the $5,000 appropriated last
fall by the board of tax levy for the con
struction of municipal bathhouses.
There are those among the friends of
the bathhouse project who claim to see
signs of a clash over the questions as to
who shall direct the expenditure of the
money and where and how it shall be ex
The city council started the movement
for improved bath-house facilities in Min
neapolis last summer by adopting a reso
lution urging the board of tax levy to
include in the 1901 appropriations $2,500
for new bath-houses at Lake Calhoun.
This set some of the East Side folk to
thinking, and they came before the board
of tax levy and insisted that $2,600 be set
aside also for bath-houses on 'the river.
The board consented to both propositions,
and the appropriation stands at $5,000.
Now no definite arrangements was made
with the park board as to where the houses
should be placed, but the understanding
has been all along that they would be
built on park property at the lake and on
It was also understood that the park
board would gladly give the city council
the privilege of directing the construction
of the bathhouses, as it is not intended
that the houses to bo erected at this time
shall be anything more than temporary af
fairs. It is the city's money that is to
build them, and it was only natural that
the city council should have the spending
It seems now, however, that some of the
members of the park board have a differ
ent idea of the matter. They take it, they
say, that the council is going to turn this
money over to them and that they are to
erect the bath houses and control their
The park board, it will be remembered,
appropriated $5,000 for bathhouses two or
three years ago, and then used the money
for ether purposes. Some of the aldermen
haven't forgotten that incident, and they
now declare that if there is a single cent
of the present bathhouse appropriation
expended this year, it will be under the
direction of the council and not the park
board, and if tha board can't agree to
that, they will vote to let the money re
vert to the permanent improvement fund.
The probable program at Monday's
meeting will be to refer the matter of
the selection of sites and other matters
in this connection to a joint committee
of the board and the council. Presumably
the new houses at Lake Calhoun will
occupy the sites of the old houses. Chair
man Peterson of the public grounds and
buildings committee thinks that one of
the river houses should be located just
below Riverside park.
Alderman Chatfield, who was among those
most interested in the bathhouse project,
will insist that at least one be located on
the East Side, and he would prefer two
for that side of the river, one above Cen
tral avenue, the other below the Wash
ington avenue bridge.
GOODNOW'S WESLEY LECTURE
It Is Listened To by a Large Au
John Goodnow spoke before a large au
dience at Wesley church last night and
received a flattering reception.
He touched but lightly on the subject of
international politics, but confined himself
largely to a recital of the daily life of the
foreign colony at Shanghai, the manners
and customs of the natives, some of his
own experiences, and in conclusion said
some splendid words for the work and de
votion of the missionaries.
He was especially emphatic in correcting
the world wide impression that much of
the country is involved in the present dif
ficulties. The trouble is wholly confined
to three provinces. Everywhere else in
all that vast domain there is peace and
contentment and law and order, with all
foreigners as secure in the possession of
life and property as if at home. There
was a mistaken idea, too, regarding the
personal qualities of the Chinese. He
had found them fine fellows in the main,
the better element corresponding to our
better elements in this country, educated,
cultured, fair-minded and companionable.
The Chinese exclusion act cuts no figure
whatever in China, he said. The United
States could pass a dozen such aots and
nobody in China would care a whit. The
great drawback to the development of any
strong national feeling in China, as well
as to its material advancement, is the
great diversity of language. There is so
little intercourse between the people of
the different provinces and cities that in
the course of centuries each has developed
its own provincial language.
The missionaries are all right, Mr.
Goodnow declared. He went to China im
bued with much of the current skepticism
regarding the practicability of their work,
but it did not take him long to learn that
the missionaries were a very earnest and
devoted lot of people and were doing a
splendid work in China.
Mr. Goodnow will leave to-night for
New York. He will return to Minneapolis
In about a week and will remain here for
two weeks before leaving for his post at

SAVE MONEY BY WAITING
THE ADVICE OF ICE MAX DWVEV
Ice Cutters W ill Soon Desert Cnl
lioun for Other Lakes on
If the residents about Lake Calhoun who
are agitating for an end of the ice cut
ting on that lake would consult Iceman
James Dwyer they might learn something
that would tend to give them a more
philosophical view of the situation. Ice
man Dwyer insists that they are making
a lot of trouble for themselves quite
needlessly. Even admitting that the level
of the lake is lowered apparently by the
cutting of ice, why kick up a row"over
it and run up a big bill of expenses in
the courts when by keeping still for a
few years the cause of the trouble will
Irrespective of any action by the pro
testing residents it will be but a few short
years, the aldermanic iceman says, when
the natural development of the ice cutting
industry will drive all the Minneapolis
companies to seek the country lakes. "I
am now cutting my ice from lakes along
the railroad lines back in the country,"
said he, "and, mark what I say, you will
•find that before long all the lakes in the
city limits where ice is now being cut will
be deserted and the companies getting all
their supplies from points a good many
It Doesn't Pay.
To say nothing of the superior character
of the outside ice, icemen are waking up
to the fact that there is no economic ad
vantage in getting their supply from lakes
in the city. It is a long and expensive haul
from Calhoun or Cedar lake, and the wear
and tear on the horses and wagons is im
mense, not to speak of the time consumed
in the haul.
Investigation will show that as against
the company getting its ice via the rail
roads from some lake back in the country
the local hou^s will work under a seri
ous handicap. By getting his ice from the
country the iceman can have it brought
to convenient distributing points in the
city, thus minimizing the expense of de
livery, the one big item in the conduct of
an ice business.
Every year from now on will see more
and more of the ice used in Minneapolis
coming from outside points, and the com
pany that delays action the longest will
get the worst of it. This has been the
experience of other cities, and it will be
the same here. So I would advise the Lake
Oalhoun people to wait a year or two be
fore taking extreme measures. The lake
has been there a good many years now and
it is going to stay awhile yet, with all the
ice cutting that can possibly be done."
CONTROL OF THE "FRATS"
THE WISCONSIX PLAX IS LIKED
Greeks at the "U" Wouldn't Be
Aveme to Sucli it
Fraternity men in Minneapolis do not
look with disfavor upon the proposed leg
islation in Wisconsin for the control of the
affairs of fraternities in the state institu
The plan provides that each school hav
ing fraternities shall organize a board of
control, made up of faculty members of
the fraternities or representatives ap
pointed by the societies, whose duty it
shall be to investigate the charters of the
organizations and their rules of govern
ment. The law would also give fraterni
ties which complied with the requirements
of the board the privilege of building
chapter houses on the campus.
The proposition for a board of control
is in some ways objectionable to' the
Greeks. The possibility that the submis
sion to the board of questions concerning
the societies would niajce the affairs of
the "frats" too public, and in this indi
rect way destroy the autonomy of the or
ganization in the general fraternity, if not
injure the national bod.r. is slight, since
the membership of the' board would in
most cases be entirely fraternal.
The last clause of the proposed bill,
providing for a grant of privilege to build
on the college grounds upon the com
pliance with conditions is redeeming,
and will probably be looked upon with
favor by fraternity men in schools where
the campus is spacious enough to make
locations on it advantageous.
At the University of Minnesota such a
plan viuld probably take well because
there are few if any places on the campus
now owned by the state that would be
desirable as locations for fraternity
The "U" fraternity men here, however,
believe that the proposed legislation in
Wisconsin will have a hard time getting
through, the mere fact that its general re
sult would be to make more public the
treasured secrets of the societies being an
announcement that "frat" men will find
ample excuse for opposing it.

of the prize will not be felt to so grea^
an extent this year as might otherwise be
the case. But next year the preliminaries
are expected to be entered by an unusually
large number of students and to lead to
harder and better work.

ROOSEVELT CLUB MINSTREL SHOW
The Preparations Are' Going Mer
rily Forward and Saccett Is
Preparations for the presentation of the
minstrel show of the Roosevelt March
ing club are going forward in a way that
assures success. Feb. 25 and 26 have been
selected as the dates and the Lyceum for
The end men the chorus and the mando
factory rehearsals. Every night the per
factory rehearsals, very night the per
formers meet and devote their energies
and efforts to preparation, and those who
have been permitted to get a glimpse of
their work know that something is com
ing that is simply going to take the fun
loving public off its feet. Charles Gale,
Sewall Andrews, John Shaw and other
bright minds are working up all sorts of
end gags and joshes, along with some de
cidedly clever songs that will make it
hard for future professionals come up to
the tastes of the Minneapolis public.
The members of the marching club and
their friends are doing everything in
their power to make the show a success
in order that the expenses of the club to
the inaugural ceremonies at Washing
ton in March may be defrayed. The club
is a representative one and the city will
be well represented by it at the national
capital. The minstrel show will there
fore, be of the nature of a society event,
and society will be there in full force.
There is a friendly rivalry between the
Minneapolis and the St. Paul clubs as to
which will make the best showing at
Washington, which Minneapolitans say
is all the more reason why the boys should
be generously supported.
Francis J. Carmody, private secretary
of Loren Fletcher and a member of the
club is arranging accommodations for the
stay in Washington and has secured
Harper's hall, a swell place, for head
quarters, where everything will be pro
vided for the club's comfort.
Al Fldurnoy will have charge of the
show and Joseph Frank of the musical
parts. Jesse Shuman will lead, the man
The club has selected The Journal
Newsboys' Band, as the most unique band
in town, to help out in the big minstrel
SOCIETY LIFE AT THE "U"
The Woman's League of the University is
an organization for the improvement of the
sooial lite of the institution and aims to in
clude all of the young woruen in its circle.
It being impossible to promote real acquaint
ance througn large gatherings, the members
have been diviaed up into groups of fifteen
and great pains have been taken to separate
those who are already sufficiently well ac
quainted. It T\as the belief of the commit
tee which made the division that in some of
the groups not one girl would knew another
when they met this afternoon for the first
time. Each eic^P includes two seniors, three
juniors; three sophomores and enough fresh
men and specials to fill it. Each has one or
two faculty won"en as associate members
and these are the social leaders of the group.
This afternoon each group was entertained
at the home of one of the faculty women.
The meetings were very informal and each
hostess had her own plan of breaking the
ice and promoting acquaints nee as much as
possible. Gutting games and contests were
rrovided quit: generall.., though these were
varied with candy pulls and thimble bees.
Light refreshments were served. A few of
the groups united this afternoon in enter
taining. Mrs. Frankforter will have her
group on Monday afternoon instead of to
day, at her home, 1316 Clinton avenue.

Preparations for the junior ball, which
comes Feb. 15, are now well under way,
and the committee is doing all that hard
work and money can to make the event one
to be remembered with pleasure by all who
attend. This annual midwinter party of the
juniors is at a time when everything seems
to lend itself to the occasion, coming, as ft
does, at the close of the winter's social life
and shortly before Lent. The decoration
committee has planned an elaborate scene
of bewildering beauty. The decorations will
be even more elaborate than at first planned.
Red, white and blue will be gracefully fes
tooned among the high arches overhead,
while electrical designs of colored lights wil!
figure prominently. Palms and ferns will be
used here and there, and Georgia smilax will
constitute a background for the orchestra gal
lery, which will be draped in national colors.
The spectators' gallery will be draped in
crimson and straw, the class colors, and the
corners on the main floor will be fitted up
into oriental booths, at two of which frapps
will be served. Rich rugs and cushions, with
divans, together with colored lights, will be
used here to carry out the oriental effect.
The dance programs are dainty and artistic.
The covers will be in crimson, with letters
embossed in straw color, and on the first
page.will be a beautiful pen and ink drawing.
Danz's orchestra of twenty-five pieces will
furnish a "musicale" at 8, preceding the
dance program of thirty numbers. The gal
leries will be open to spectators. Refresh
ments will be served by one of the best ca
terers in the cities. The committee having
this In charge have decided to make more
elaborate preparations in this line than has
heretofore been the custom.
