LECTURE FOR TEACHERS
Dr. Clark Addressed Them Especial
: ly Last XiR-ht '•',< • . ■"■ ■
' Dr. S. H. Clark, who is to give an in
terpretative recital of "King Lear" 'to
morrow night at the. Lyceum Theater in the
Teachers" club course, is also giving a ser
ies of literary lectures at the Central High
school, especially for the teachers, but
open to the': public. Dr. Clark gave his
first: lecture last night on , "The Meaning
and Purpose of Tragedy" to a large au
dience made up chiefly of teachers "and
their immediate associates. Dr. Clark is
known to the teaching corps, as. it was
his ' address jj before that body last year
which led the lecture committee to arrange
for his, public appearance under its aus
pices this year. He is a favorite with the
teachers and will quickly win a similar
regard with others, hearing 1 him, for his
magnetism, naturalness, ease and original
ity and vigor of thought 1 make him a
speaker of unusual power' and attractive
He has his own ideas on literary sub
jects which he expresses boldly, although
at first blush they run counter to pre
vailing opinion and are rather startling.
Dr. Clark's evident sincerity and consist
ency remove all suspicion of his radical
views being for effect. He condemned the
light literature of the day as being abso
lutely false to life in bringing about a
happy ending to everything. The evil ef
fects of such literature fie"summed up as
weakening the will power and giving a
man incorrect views of life which unfit
him for the tragedy fate surely has in
store for every individual; as making him
inordinately impatient, and as creating an
intense craving for excitement. The whole
trouble is that people are imbued through
reading with the idea that life is made up
of "whole circles" while in reality it is
"broken ar«." Tat death of the body is
nothing; the death of the soul is every
thing," is the lesson of tragedy.
Dr. Clark distinguished sharply between
pathos and tragedy, the former being a
strong element of melodrama. Tragedy is
the expression of mature minds that have
learned the lessons of life and the speaker
pointed out that Shakspere had developed
from a writer of light comedy, almost
farces, by gradual steps, to his tragedies,
and especially to "Lear," the greatest
English tragedy. He used "Lear" fre
quently in his illustrations, preparing the
way interestingly for the recital to-morrow
Dr. Clark spoke this morning to the pu
pils at the university at chapel and will
lecture again at the Central High school
Friday and Saturday mornings.

Park Beard President Doesn't Like
A««e»muent System and.
■ Explain* Why. '■■' -■•■ >.• '■
The bQard of park commissioners met
at 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon and re
ceived a report from the finance commit
tee containing the estimates of the in
come and expenditures for the current
year, and President W. W. Folwell's an
The report embodies a comprehensive
review of the history of park improve
ments in Minneapolis.
Referring to the deficit in the finances
of the board for 1900 President Folwell
says that it is not due to expenditures
in excess of those authorized for that
year, but that the real responsibility
rests upon the system of assessments and '
certificates for park improvements. Dur
ing the time of the real estate boom
hundreds of petitions were received from
property owners asking for the loca
tion of parks, and while a majority were
rejected still over $1,000,000 was ex
pended from the years 1888 to 1894.
Shortly afterwards the panic came, which
interfered with the payment of assess
ments, the result being that the board
found itself under a heavy indebtedness
resting upon delinquencies, from which
5120,000 Is still due.
Temptation for Speculators.
In the judgment of President Folwell
the present system of assessment is
wrong, as in flourishing times it leads
to extravagance and offers a tempting
field for mere speculators.
Following is a summary of the report
of the finance committee:
Fixed charges 135,268.14
This leaves $58,954.79 available for other
purposes. Following is the estimate of ex
penses for these other purposes:
Park maintenance $46,086.50
Care of trees on the streets and
In nurseries ..... 1600 00
Tools, etc 2,500.00
Beats for Harriet 2,126.00
General expenses 7.687.50
Park teams , 2,000.00
New trees to be planted 4,000.00
Total of estimated expenditures.. $71,445.00
This leaves a deficit of $12,490.21 for
A note of $25,000, which matures in a
few days, was ordered paid, and a re
monstrance from property owners, against
granting the petition for a speedway in
Powderhorn park, was referred to the
committee on improvements.
