Opinion of T. B. Walker Regarding
In the opinion of T. B. Walker, member
of the library board, the expenses of the
whole administration of the Minneapolis
library are in excess of the amount nec
essary. He made this statement yester
day in explaining his recent vote against
an advance in wages for the day and night
janitors. He is not against more wages
for the janitors, he explains, but he can
not vote for such increase unless there is
a readjustment of the whole janitors' sal
ary list. The library with the funds at
its disposal might and should be develop
ing more rapidly and showing better re
sults than is the case, he insists.

The strenuous early March zephyrs of
the last few days have brought all sorts
of trouble to the construction depart
ments of the telephone companies. The
Northwestern makes a conservative esti
mate of 1,000 wires down in Minneapolis
as the result of the three-daya' blow.
Superintendent Griffin of the construction
department says that if the breeze takes
a vacation for a few days the damage
can be repaired easily by the latter part
of the week. A big extra force has been
Yesterday six of the long lines were in
trouble, all of them being wires to the
Red River valley and northern Minne
sota. Three of these were in operation
this morning and the other three are
being doctored rapidly.
The storm of the last few days has
been a mild one compared to a few of
the blows of last spring and summer, but
it came as a surprise to the telephone
people on account of the very tame win
ter which they had grown accustomed to.
The company's wire inspector has been
kept busy since Sunday morning answer
ing complaints of wires down and instru
ments that don't work. Every patron
whose connection was broken at once dis
covered a very pressing need of the tele
phone, and not all of the complaints were
velvet-worded. As each complainant is
not aware that there are 999 wires beside
his own in trouble, he can't understand

PRESIDENT HILL DENIES
HEXCE IT IS PROBABLY TRUE
Deal for Control or tlie Crow's \'eit
« out Minem Apparently
James J. Hill of the Great Northern has
just held an important conference with
Robert Jaffray, William Beith, Peter Byan
and G. T. S. Lindsay of Toronto, the prin
cipal owners of the Crows Xest coal mines
in British Columbia. The gentlemen ar
rived in St. Paul Sunday evening, and al
though Mr. Hill denies that their business
in St. Paul is for the purpose of closing
the deal in connection with the coal fields
that willgive Mr. Hill a vital interest in
them, it is not believed that the gentle
men are in the northwest on a pleasure
trip, at this season of the year.
An authority says that by the terms of
the deal Mr. Hiil is given a half million
dollars worth of stock, control of the
mines for a number of years and an op
tion on sufficient stock to control the prop
erty in case he should desire to buy.
Mr. Hill, under the new order of things,
would be compelled to construct a line
from some point on the Great Northern to
the Canadian border where connection
could be made with a line leading to the
mines. The distance to the boundary is
about eighty miles.
In this connection, the news that the
smelters at Greenwood and other towns in
the Kootenay district have been shut
down for lack of coal and coke is interest
ing. This state of things is said to be
owing entirely to the control of the Crows
Nest mines passing into the hands of an
American syndicate headed by James J.
Hill. This information is doubtless pre
mature, as exorbitant freight rates on
the Canadian Pacific have doubtless had
more to do with the shut down than any
action on the part of Mr. Hill, assuming
that his syndicate has secured the property
which is not certain.

TO FIGHT DISEASE
Health Commissioner Hall Getting
Ready for Smallpox. *
LUMBERJACKS HAY BRING GERMS
Lodging House Proprietor* Will Be
Aaked to Co-operate In Vacci
nation and Kiiiiil^hiloii.
In another fortnight the annual spring
rush citywards from the northern lumber
camps will be in full operation, and the
smallpox problem in Minneapolis will
take on new complications. Health Com
missioner Hall has already begun to take
thought of how best to meet the situation
and has practically decided upon his
course of procedure.
His program will include rigid surveil
lance of the lodging-houses, fumigation
of all baggage and personal effects com
ing from the infeoeted country, and vac
cination all along the line, both of those
coming from the camps and those In the
city with whom they are likely to be as
Smallpox has Wen very prevalent in
the lumber camps this winter. In some
cases, whole camps have come down with
the disease and sequestered from the rest
of the world. In other cases, camps have
been broken up and the men scattered all
over the timber country, carrying in
fection with them.. The result has been
that Duluth, Bemidjl and other cities and
towns in the northern part of the state
are full of smallpox, and their health
authorities in despair over the situation.
The camps will begin to break up for
the season about March 15, and a day
or two later Dr. Halls expects to see the
men come pouring into Minneapolis in
hordes for the spring season of recupera
tion and entertainment before seeking
new employment. They crowd the lower
town lodging-houses to the doors, mingle
with the throngs at the restaurants and
theaters, spend money with lavish hand
among the denizens of the "tenderloin "
and in general take just the course to
spread the disease.
Dr. Hall's Plan.
Dr. Hall's first thought was to get the
state board of health to co-operate with
him in an effort to effect the vaccination
of all men in the lumber camps before
leaving. Secretary Bracken has informed
him, however, that such a program could
not be enforced from lack of authority
in law. Manifestly, there was little or
nothing that the state board could do in
the premises, so Dr. Hall fell back on his
own resources. He has already prepared
his plan and begun preliminary opera
tions. The lodging-houses have been
asked to co-operate with him in an effort
to segregate all baggage coming from the
lumber country for immediate fumigation,
and to report every suspicious case
promptly. They will also urge all their
lodgers who have not already been vac
cinated to attend to it at once.
Dr. Hall has also decided that it will
be necessary in the meantime to make a
thorough investigation of all houses of
ill repute in the city, and require their
inmates to be vaccinated. This is a
delicate task, and he has decided to defer
action until he has had an opportunity to
advise with the mayor on the subject
There are only five or six patients now
at the quarantine hospital, and unless
the men from the camps bring contagion
with them. Dr. Hall is satisfied that the
city has little to fear from smallpox for
the rest of the yeas.
THREE MONTHS' VACATION
Henneplii M. E. Church Generons to
The official board of Hennepin Avenue
Methodist church did a generous thing
last Monday night in granting its pastor,
Dr. Charles Bayard Mitchell a three
months 1 vacation, to be taken during the
coming July. August and September. Dr.
Mitchell is one of the principal speakers
at the International Epworth League con
vention which meets in San Francisco
July 18-21, and will spend July on the
Pacific slope. He and his wife will spend
August in Spain, the only European
country they have not thoroughly ex
plored, in September they go to Lon
don, where the great Methodist Ecumeni
cal Conference will be held. That confer
ence is held every ten years. Last time
the meeting was in Washington D. C.
twenty years ago, in London. That body
is composed of representative Methodists
from all parts of the world. Dr. Mitchell
is a delegate and will take part in the
conference. During the pastor's absence,
the pulpit will be supplied by the best
available pulpit talent in the country.
Dr. J. F. Force, X. McCarthy and F. A.
Chamberlain are the committee in charge
of pulpit supplies.
A CROWD FOR GORDON
Large Audience Will Hear the Gen-
eral's New Lecture.
General John B. Gordon, one of the two
surviving corps commanders in the Con
federate army, is to deliver his new lec
ture on "The First Days of the Confed
eracy" at the Lyceum theater Friday
night under the auspices of the Institute
of Arts and Letters. In viewof the gen
eral's popularity and the desire of many
who do not usually attend lectures to hear
him, special inducements have been made.
The occasion is one which is not likely
to be repeated in the future. -For the
sake of old . times the passing
generation desire to , hear General Gor
don, and the younger people need to hear
him to get an insight into 'the mighty
civil war. The demand for seats, the sale
of whichopened to-day at the Metropoli
tan Music Store, is so large that there
can be no doubt that the general will be
greeted by a large audience, perhaps the
largest h» has ever had in Minneapolis.

Health Commissioner Ohage of St. Paul Is
out with an appeal to the business men of St.

The city council has voted an appropriation
of $15,000 for the extension and maintenance

Lindsay Bros, to Erect a Five-Story
IN THE W. H. EUSTIS DISTRICT
A Hhiklndiui- Architectural Addition
to the Third Street U. Uun
Lindsay Brothers, the agricultural im
plement firm at Fourth avenue N and First
street, will make a most important addi
tion to their plant as aoon as the weather
will permit. The firm owns considerable
ground in the district at Seventh avenue
S and Third street, and it is the intention
of Messrs. Lindsay Brothers to build a
130,000 warehouse in that locality early
this spring. The new building will be 52x
132 feet and have a frontage on Seventh
avenue. It will be five stories with base
ment and of modern construction through
While the building will be partially used
to accommodate the firm's business, it will
be principally devoted to tenants desiring
to rent space for various purposes.
The new building will be located in the
block between Sixth and Seventh avenues
and on the spur track leading from the C.
M. & St. P. railway yards to the handsome
new quarters of the Advance Thresher
company and the J. I. Case Implement
company. Both of these firms have erected
splendid buildings in the new district de
veloped by William H. Eustis who was
successful in securing the important spur
track into the property.
The rapid development of that section
of the city has led to a great many in
quiries for locations in that vicinity. A
large thresher company whose present
headquarters are in another city, has ap
plied for ground space, while a half dozen
local concerns are seeking new quarters
near Seventh avenue S and Third street.
One of these is understood to be the J. I.
Case Thresher company, a large concern
which is entirely independent of the J. 1.
Case Implement company.
STRUGGLE IS FASCINATING
Mr. Peavey Tells Why Millionaires
Keep at Work.
F. H. Peavey of this city has contributed
an article to the Saturday Evening Post in
a series on 'Why Millionaires Can't Stop
Making Money." Mr. Peavey's article con
tribution is entitled, "Private Enterprise
and Public Benefit." Among other things
Mr. Peavey says:
At 60 I confess to feeling my mettle more
keenly than ever before, and one of the most
terrible things I could think of would be
quitting the field of "'affairs and becoming
simply a spectator of the great contest of
commerce and enterprise.
Here is the real point involved in this ques
tion. From my observation it is not the love
of money that keeps the niitHonaire toiling
long after the slightest selfish necessity for
his labor has vanished. It's the game! That
ib what holds him.
Never was there such a demand in all
branches of commerce and enterprise for
young men to nil big places as right now.'
Men with only legs and arms are to be had
cheap and in great numbers, but those who
are capable of grasping large aSßirs are not
to be had in numbers to meet the demand.
On this kind of young men the retiring mil
lionaire may lean heavily. .
MINN. FARM MORTGAGES

"Loans on western realty have always

Bald C. W. Gould, a prominent life In

of the very safe Investments, the western
farm mortgage has shown by far the best
earning power. Up to within the past
few years, the western companies loan

selves to states like Illinois, lowa and
southern Minnesota, but the other wes

from now on.
"All of the eastern companies are can
vassing the possibilities of this big wes
tern territory, and the next few years
will undoubtedly see many concerns en
ter this field for the first time. The
Pacific slope is sending us a good class
of business. Minnesota is a great state
in our estimation. Improvements in life
insurance contracts have in five years
made them almost perfect as a business
proposition, and the class of men enter

best. No man of ordinary ability will

FRENCH BEAVTIES AT THE DEWEY
The French Beauties Burlesquers, the rapid
hunch of girls from "gay Paree" at the
Dewey this week, are not so many, but they
are chic and talented and somewhat on the
"all star" order. In other words, the com
pany is not as large as others that have ap
peared at this popular playhcuse, but It has
other points of excellence to atone for its
numerical deficiencies. There are about a
dozen "beauties," and a few other young
women who will scarcely pass muster in
Class A of the beauty contest. The "ladies of
Fiance" are not all dark, impassioned look
ing houris, with raven curls, great black eyes
and swarthy complexions. Some, indeed,
appear to have been captured on the border
land of the "beautiful Rhine" or the "ar
rowy Rhone," judging from their large blue
eyes, fair locks and snowy hands.
The opening burlesque, '-The Xight it Hap
pened," might as well have been called "The
Day it Didn't Occur," as It is a purposeless
effort as thin as the costifmes of the beauties.
It serves, however, to introduce the full
strength of the company and to exhibit the
beauties in some fetching costumes.
The closing skit, "The Crowded Hotel," as
its name Implies, is full of action. This con
ceit introduces "The Girl in Red," Mile.
Flortine, a very lively young person. Helen
Russell, the captain of the fairies, is also
conspicuous in this amusing diversion.
The olio contains several strictly first-class
acts. Beach and Bechler, black-face artists,,
are as good as any of them, their musical
selections being particularly tuneful and en
joyable. Marie Rogers, a bright girl who can
sing and dance, is an important acquisition.
Tom Grimes and Belle Harvey do a sketch
entitled "The Tramp's Visit" that convulses
the audience. The dancing of the little Har

*Cal" Goodrich Tells About West
HE WAS NOT AT ALL AFFECTED
That Fact Is Evidenced lty the Mod
est Nature of the Assertions
C. G. Goodrich, vice-president of the
Twin City Rapid Transit Company, re
turned to the city Saturday after a three
weeks' sojourn at West Baden, or "French
Lick Springs, near West leaden," as Mr.
Goodrich puts it. In the absence of Mr.
Lowry Mr. Goodrich declined to discuss
street railway matters, except in the most
general way. The company will spend
more than half a million dollars this sea
son in betterments, but beyond the items
of expenditure he knows nothing of im
portance. All matters regarding exten
sions—Mr. Goodrich does not believe there
will be any extensions this year—must be
settled by President Thomas Lowry. Mr.
Lowry is still in the east, and is not ex
pected home for a fortnight.
At the Nicollet cafe to-day, where Mr.
Goodrich entertained a coterie of friends,
he remarked upon a curious phase of the
Indiana waters which has not heretofore
been made public. Mr. Goodrich says in
all seriousness that he remained over a
day of two in Chicago to get all of the
Indiana water out of his system for the
reason that a full tide of fluid make 6 a
man unreliable; that is, it induces a con
dition of exaggeration in his mind which
is dangerous. To illustrate, he said his
friend M. D. Munn, the St. Paul lawyer,
was a different man after he drank a gal
lon or so of the West Baden mixture.
Where *he formally placed implicit reli
ance in the attorney's dictum, he took
everything he said after the first gallon,
with not only a grain but a dose of salt.
Can't Account for It.
"I am utterly unable to account for the
peculiarity of that Indiana water," Baid
Mr. Goodrich. "It has a property that is
simply inexplicable. You km/w, people
who go down to West Baden usually do so
for the purpose of recuperating their flag
ging energies. Well, as soon as they be
gin to drink the water, which is the
serious business of life in that village,
they begin to exercise. As there is not
much going on, naturally they talk a good
deal about themselves. A man, for ex
ample, who at home scarcely walks a mile
in two weeks, If he walks three blocks in
West Baden, thinks he has gone five or
six miles. That was largely the case with
Munn. and others in the Minnesota colo
ny. Every day we met and exchanged
confidences and told of our training ex
periences. And the stories some of those
men told were appalling. I'd actully' be
afraid to tell 'em. That water is a won
der at increasing a man's powers of ex
pression regarding himself. But I re
mained over in Chicago a day or two and
got it all out of my system, every gill of
it. I didn't want to come home thinking
I could walk ten miles before breakfast,
as I told Munn and the rest of 'em.
"Mr. Lowry will be home in a few days,
and he can tell you all about things. I
am going to take a little spin over to St.
Paul this morning. No, not on my wheel,
going afoot. O, I have had breakfast and

are really helpful, if you don't drink too
much of them. I had been wrestling with
Prof. Kasten for exercise before my trip
to West Baden, but of course I couldn't
do anything with a big athletic fellow like
him. However, we had a little tussle Sat

WILL HAVE_A BANNER
Minnesota Bnttermakers Will Have
One Made If Necessary.
The Kansas buttermakers show no In
clination to return the bann-er won by-
Minnesota at the recent National Butter
makers convention but awarded to Kansas
by mistake. The Kansas governor and
other state officers have made speeches of
congratulation to the returning butter
makers, an-d to see the banner go back to
Minnesota after that does not suit the
sunflower idea. Secretary Sudendorf of
the Buttermakers' association says that if
Kansas fails to return the banner a new
one will be made for Minnesota.
WIRE TO GO UNDER GROUND.
Special to The Journal.
La Crosse, Wis., March 5.—A1l telephone
and telegraph wires in the business part of
this city will be put under ground this year.
The telephone companies have large crews of
men at work and by the middle of May there
will be no poles in the business streets. Some
time ago an ordinance was passed by the
common council compelling all companies to
lay their wires underground.
"Heating: With Ice."
The bulletin recently issued by the
Weather Bureau at Washington tells of a.
novel method of heating with ice. A re
frigerator car is double lined and between
the two linings is placed a layer of ice.
Ice is normally about 32 degrees Farenheit
and does not give off its temperature
freely. Hence, when the outside air is at
zero the ice keeps the inside air relatively
warm. Ice- may do for "heating" perish
able goods, but for heating the human body
"Golden Grain Belt" beer is the ideal food
beverage. Brewed from the purest barley
malt and hops, it Is nourishing and
strengthening and a great health producer.
