WALTER WYCKOFF IS COMING
Famous Sooiolojiist and Writer to
Lecture Friday Evening;.
Minneapolis is. to have the pleasure of
hearing next week for the first time Wal
ter A. Wyckoff, the young Princeton lec
turer, whose book, "The Workers," in its
divisions, "The East and "The West," at
tracted more" attention both popular and
serious than any similar work in many
years. The books are the statement of a
first-hand acquaintance with conditions of
life existing among those who earn their
bread by daily manual labor.
The experiment through which Mr. Wy
ckoff secured his valuable knowledge is
familiar even to those who have not read
his books nor learned his conclusions fully.
A Princeton student and a fellow of that
institution, he was engaged some years
■ago in a sociological discussion. A busi
ness man who knew more of the world or
reality than of books remarked to him
that he did not know what he was talking
about and afterwards advised him private
ly to put aside his books for a year and
try living as the people he was studying
did. becoming familiar with their life by
actual contact. The suggestion sunk deep
into the young man's heart, for he was
seeking to know the. truth.. He did not
•hesitate at the prospect and soon had his
plans 'made. ; * : , lc ;v .'. -v.i
He made his experiment in the midst of
the hard times and many times knew what
i: was to grow hungry and was among the
crowds in Chicago which threatened to
grow riotous in consequence of their pri
vations. He plunged incognito into a new
and untried sphere of life and adopted tne
humble and inglorious role of a day la
borer. He did everything he could find
to do and drifted all over the country in
his researches and his efforts to earn a
living with his hands. His accounts of
his observations have an expert value, for
he not only saw the reality, but saw it
with a trained mind, which could grasp
its significance and handle the material
ably. "The Workers" is not only a very
valuable work but an exceedingly inter
esting one, for truth is stranger than
There have been desultory attempts to
make people of opportunities familiar with
the way the .other half lives, but in get
ting and giving a fully drawn picture of
that life Mr. .Wyckoff was the pioneer. The
continual and earnest attention being giv
en to similar efforts is a tribute to the
value of his work. The sympathetic spirit
of the study is. one of its vital features.
It forces the readers to put themselves in
the places of manual workers and to enter
into their experiences. He makes the
readers feel the emotions which he felt
In the situations in which the poor live.al

NEW COLLEGE AT U.
Plan to Broaden Scope of Depart
ment of Pedagogy.
GIVING IT GREATER DIGNITY
Aim la to Make It v Profeaalonal
School for IVuebfi-k of Spe
The friends of higher education are pro
jecting a new departure for the state uni
versity which will be of great benefit not
only to the institution itself, but to the
educational interests of the state at large.
They propose the creation of a college of
pedagogy, for the benefit of teachers who
Intend to teach special branches in high
schools and academies. IU work will not
conflict with that of the normal schools,
but will give graduates of normal schools
an opportunity for advanced study In the
special lines they may choose to teach.
Students will not only take advanced work
in their favorite branches, but will be
taught how to teach them.
There is now at the university a depart
ment of pedagogy, of which Dr. Kiehle
is the head. The doctor has one assistant,
but their work is confined to the theory
of teaching. The new college of pedagogy
would include the present department and
would draw on all the other departments
of the university for instruction in sbs
clal lines. The department of Latin, fon
instance, would aid in fitting teachers of
Latin. While the work would lead to a
degree, it would be largely elective, the
student being permitted to take work
In any special line chosen.
How to Teach One Subject.
The state high school board requires
teachers in the high schools to be college
graduates. A graduate of the state uni
versity may be well equipped in some par
ticular line and have some knowledge of
pedagogy in general, but a course in the
college of pedagogy would give him a
knowledge of how best to handle a partic
ular subject in the class room. The col
lege would also give the normal school
graduate the advantage of the university's
corps of instructors and equipment of
libraries and laboratories for special ad
vanced work in any department, leading
to a degree from the university.
The project is not experimental. Col
leges of pedagogy are now established and
to successful operation at Harvard, the
University of Pennsylvania, the Univer
sity of the City of New York and the Uni
versity of Wisconsin. The propriety of
the university's engaging in this special
work cannot be questioned, say the
friends of the plan. There are already
professional schools of law, medicine, den
tistry, pharmacy and engineering at the
university. The proposed college is a pro
fessional school for educators.
The Cost of the School.
The college would mean an additional
expense to the university. It would re
quire attention from professors in all de
partments. Professors who would give
their time to the school of pedagogy would
have to be relieved of some other work,
and this would mean some increase in the
faculty. It is estimated that $10,000 a
year would sustain the college, but that
sum is considered small in comparison
with the added advantage it would give
to the teachers of Minnesota.
It is a maxim among educators that
"normal school graduates know how to
teach, and college graduates know what
to teach." The aim of the proposed col
lege would be to turn out teachers who
would not only know what to teach but
how to teach it.

ABODT SOME R. R. RUMORS
THK IOWA CKXTBAL AND M. 4t STX.
Vcn (•(■mhl|i >«-<-iii- in Bt> Baned On
All sorts of rumors continue to gain
circulation relative to the Minneapolis &
St. Louis and the lowa Central properties.
A consolidation is hinted at which will
insure a continuous line from the twin
cities to Peoria. 111., "under one man
agement,"' as if the announcement of "one
management" were necessary to effect a
desirable traffic arrangement.
For the benefit of many industrious
scribblers who appear to have no knowl
edge of the two properties or of the men
who control them, it may be stated thai
the men who own, or control, the Minne
apolis & St. Louis own or control the
lowa Central. This was known to be the
case when General Manager L. F. Day
of the St. Louis took charge of the operat
ing department of the lowa road and
was instructed to "make a railroad out
of it." It is to be presumed that if the
same men dominate the two properties
it is quite within their province to effect
a satisfactory traffic arrangement between
the two roads without promulgating to
the world that the properties have been
consolidated. The properties are separate
and distinct to this extent: Their various
departments, with the exception of the
operating and engineering departments,
are separate. Their earnings are not
pooled, nor do the stockholders of either
road regard them as identical corpora
tions. The point is, the men who own
the majority of stock in the St. Louis own
the majority of the stock in the lowa.
Central, and while there has been no
actual consolidation of the properties, it
is easy to understand that the roads have
a perfect understanding.
As to the rumors concerning the ab
sorption of one or both of the roads by
the Illinois Central, evrything is pos
sible in an age of combinations, and there
appears to be some grounds for suppos
ing that t*e Illinois Central is anxious to
get both of the properties, but the trick
has not yet been turned. The rumor that
the Milwaukee is figuring on securing con
trol of the lowa Central and Mason City
& Fort Dodge lines, is not generally cred
ited. While there is no doubt but that
such a consummation would benefit the
Milwaukee, there is not much likelihood
Outlook for Business.
The outlook for heavy traffic on all north
western lin«s is excellent. The coast lines in
particular expect to snow largely increased
earnings during the summer and fall mouths.
An enormous amount of freight is going
forward to Alaska and will run into many
thousands of tons before the season is over.
I . P. and Burlington Hostile.
From a reliable source it is learned that
a serious rupture is imminent between
the Burlington and the Union Pacific. The
former is disgruntled over the recent ac
quisitions of the latter road, while the Union
Pacific does not relish the idea of the Bur
lington building into Salt Lake City. A fine
diplomatic, hand is necessary, it is said, to

The Great Northern will take steps toward

train of twenty cars of logs for the Nells
Lumber company, in charge of Engineer Joe
Peters and Conductor George Corey, will

ids, a distance of over lav miles, in abou:
twelve hours. ,
Rockwell < inning Back.
E. W. Rockwell, formerly assistant ticket
agent of the Northern Pacific in Minneap
olis, who resigned three years ago to take
up other business in California, is under
stood to have been decided upon for assistant
city ticket agent of that road in Duluth.
The contract for constructing the Omaha
Northern from Omaha to Sioux City through
Nebraska has been let to E. P. Reynolds, Jr.,
of Wymore, Neb.
It is understood that the United States
government has given a tip to rail
way officials that any attempt to control the
military business by means of a pool will be
fought to a finish.
Peter Sendt, engineer on the Prairie dv
Chien division of the Milwaukee road, run
ning between North McGregor and Madison
on passenger train No. 4, cHed on his en
gine at Lone Rock, Wis.. to-day. The cause
is attributed to heart failure.
The control of the Montreal Terminal rail
way has passed into the hands of Colonel
McNaughton of New York and other Ameri
can capitalists. W. D. Harris, the president
of the company, who held half the stock, re
signed the presidency and sold his stock.
There are rumors that either the Southern
Railway company or the St. Loins & San
Francisco railroad will acquire a controlling
interest in the Kansas City, Memphis &
Birmingham, which extends from Birming
ham, Ala., to Memphis, Term., and the Kan
sas City, Fort Scott & Gulf railroad, which
extends from Memphis to Kansas City.

Goodnow went to Washington, where he
was instructed to • return to his post as
speedily as possible. .. Mr. Goodnow left

Society will turn out Monday and Tues
day nights in large numbers to enjoy the
minstrel performances of the Roosevelt
Marching club at the Lyceum. Every seat
down stairs and most of the boxes have
been sold already, and the balcony seats
are going like the proverbial hot cake.
The theater will be attractively decorated
with flags and the performances promise
to be two of the most memorable affairs
society has taken up this winter.
The Roosevelt Marching club leaves Min
neapolis next Saturday morning at 8:30
for Washington,, D. C, to take part in the
inauguration parade. About fifty men are
going from Minneapolis, and a special
train with diner attached is to be shared
with the St. Paul club, who are going
se\«enty-five strong. The Minneapolis
club pays for the round trip ticket and all
expenses in Washington of the members
who go. This is made possible by the suc
cessful sale of tickets for the minstrel
show. The club has been working for the
past month preparing for this perform
ance, and the predictions are that the
audiences will be greatly surprised at the
character of the entertainment. Superior
talent abounds in the club, and some very
clever men are filling the leading roles.
Society people are giving it their hearty
support, as the following list of patron
esses would indicate:

part in the campaign. It was the largest

command of George K. Belden, and the
officers are W. W. Heffelfinger, president-

He Tried Journal Wants
A new and evidently very profitable use
of want page advertising in Th c Jo vm
a 1 is explained by the following letter
from a man who has become a believer in
that way of reaching the public. When
you have a really good thing there is no
danger about failure to interest the pub
lic in it if it is presented in such a way
as to assure the advertising reader of the
sincerity and genuineness of the advertis
ing. This is done, not by exaggeration
and not always by striking or sensational
statements, but often by moderate and
plain statements of fact.
Hendricks, Lincoln County Minn —
Manager The Minneapolis Journal. Dear
Sir: # I have been a subscriber of your
great daily ever since this village was
laid out and the marvelous growth of this
"magic city of the lake" set me to think
ing of a way to make known our needs of
various professional and business men.
To write to individuals or send circulars
to postofflces has been tried in many
instances but failed to meet the require
ments. But a happy thought came: "Try
the want columns of The Journal";
and so I sent a five-iline ad asking a
dime for further information. It has done
wonders; only two insertions brought
from lawyers, dentists and physicians let
ters for further particulars.
One lawyer and land man says: "I send
a stamp instead of five, as I fear it is a
fake way of getting money." I replied
with his stamp.
If you don't think Hendricks is all right
write to the president of the North-West
ern road, who has lately fenced in a
beautiful farm adjoining our town, forty
acres as a park, and who will build a
beautiful summer residence in the spring.
He replied to my solicitation for a dona
tion for the purpose of erecting a
Methodist church by- heading our subscrip
tion list with $100 and M. G. Norton of
Winona followed with a like amount, and
yet the writer had never met either of
these gentlemen. My dear old friend Abe
Lincoln used to say that he would rather
be a poor man giving than a rich man
denying. Keep my ad in another week;
we "need a dentist with a strong pull.
LOWRY HILL CHURCH QUARTET.
A new quartet has been formed in Lowry
Hill ohurrh. It is composed of Mrs. E. C.
Benton, soprano; Mrs. J. C. Millard, alto;
Trafford Jayne, tenor, and C. C. Coffee, bass.
They will sing to-morrow at the firs>t serv
ices in the new church. Dr. Coffee will fur
nish a solo.
The Truncated Man.
This remarkable man has from birth
been deprived of his arms and legs. He
is a Frenchman about 25 years of age.
and absolutely dependent as he cannot

"What northern Wisconsin needs now is
more factories," said C. W. Latimer of Por
tage. "As the timber in that section of the
state disappears, her towns will be forced to
adopt the same measures that have proved
so successful in Sagjnaw, Mich. They must
work for industries that employ large num
bers of people. The day is not far off when
northern Wisconsin will be shipping starch
in large quantities. In some' sections of the
state the paper-mili industry is getting a
The Night Hawks' Association is a new
one. C. H. Little of Cedar Rapids, who was
one of the lowaiis looking on at the butter
makers' convention, is one of its prominent
members. The association is one of the side
lights sprung by the eastern delegates to the
big convention at Sioux Falls two years ago,
aad, from present indications, bids fair to
become a large order. Mr. Little says that
the attendance from the eastern states at
future meetings of the association will be
larger. He is seconded in this by one of
the Ohio men who promises to bring a big
delegation next year.
F. H. McDermont of Rugby, N. D., Is at
the Nicollet. In Illinois, where Mr. McDer
mont has been spending the past six weeks,
the farmers and business men are asking
many questions about the northwest. They
are interested in Minnesota to the extent
of being willing to invest some of their
money here at a fair rate of interest. The
inquiry for North Dakota lands is frequent,
and comes from men who have money with
which to buy. In western North Dakota
Mr. McDermont considers that the loan busi
ness for the next few years will be good.
Many of the new arrivals have money with
which to get a good start, but most of them
are anxious to secure more land, while the
price is within reach. Consequently they
negotiate a loan for the purpose, using the
land they already possess as security.
Leland Griffin of DeSmet, S. D., la enthu
siastic over the prospects of the dairy inter
ests in hts state. "Although South Dakota
is a comparatively new state," said Mr.
Griffith, "and the dairy industry is new
■with üb, our people have in a few
years made wonderful progress in butter
and cheese making. The farmers In
the southern part of the state are en
thusiastic over it and It can be said
of nearly all of South Dakota east
of the Missouri, that farmers and busi
ness men are seeking more scientific knowl
edge of the work in order to improve the
grade. One tendency which is becoming
manifest in South Dakota is to Improve the
herds. The people of the state want the
Grout bill passed, and if it goes over this
session they will be disappointed."
The recess taken by the legislature of
North Dakota enabled a delegation of North
Dakota senators and representatives to pay
a short visit to the twin cities. In the party
are Senators Little, Miner, Sharpe, No*ble
and La Moure and Representative J. D. Ba
con of Grand Forks. One of the big fights
of the session, the redistricting of the state
into legislative districts, is over and the
members are glad of it. The McKenzie epi
sode, was discussed by some of the party
and the hope expressed that some way could
be found to get the national committeeman
out of his predicament. Resubmission i«
looked upon as a dead issue at this session.
