THE COLOR PROBLEM
Members of Minneapolis Federated
Clubs Study It.
A MEETING AT WESTMINSTER
It I» AddreHNfil by Mr». William.,
IVt'xidrnl Of l"«" >U»»—i»f
; The members of the federated "clubs of
the Minneapolis district . assembled.: this
afternon in ■ Westminster lecture-room to
begin a campaign' of education in regard
to the color question- under consideration
in the General Federation of Women's
clubs and to be acted upon'at the bien
nial of 1902 in Los Angeles.
The Question arose unexpectedly last
June at the Milwaukee biennial, but, as
the question did not come before the con
vention and had no official standing what
ever among the clubs, it was thought best
in the Minnesota \ federation to allow it
to vats by until the case had been stated
at least by the General Federation. This
was done at an executive board meeting
late in the fall, its status being clearly
defined. At the same meeting the Georgia
women gave notice of their intention to
ask the convention to insert the word
"white" in the membership clause which
would confine the membership to clubs
composed of white women. This action
placed the" matter fairly and officially be
fore the clubs.
Infill Action Optional.
liis not necessary for any of the sub
ordinate bodies to take any action upon
the question, which is to be decided by
the delegates elected for the biennial, but
it is the privilege of all of these organi
zations to instruct their delegates if they
Mrs. Williams, president of the Min
nesota federation, is deeply and earnestly
interested iv the question and has been
diligently employing her time since the
biennial'in making a most serious and
comprehensive study of the question, pre
paring to have the broadest and most in
telligent study of the question carried on
all through the state. The meeting to-day
was planned as the beginning of that
study. This will be followed up by a
recommendation that each of the district
conventions this spring take up the ques
tion and finally that the individual clubs
nuike it a matter of earnest study. Mrs.
Williams opened the meeting with a full
and frank statement of her position in the
matte:- and was followed by others who
have also been considering it carefully.
Mrs. Williams has collected a large amr
valuable store of material through what
has appeared in print and by a very wide
correspondence with the leaders among
the colored neople. among the clubs and
among the public-spirited people who have
given much study to the negro problem.
Mrs. Williams' Menu.
Mre. Williams, in her address, opened
encouragingly by saying that she be
lieved it possible" to find a platform upon
which all could stand" in dealing with
the color Question. She thought the dis
cussion thus far had not been logical, but
had dealt largely with subsidiary mat
The first point to be considered, she
said, was what constituted the right of
admission to any society. This, she
thought, was and should be decided by the
answers to two inquiries: First, will the
applicant be an agreeable as&ociate with
whom to work? Second, will that appli
cant further the object for which the
society is organized? A society owes a
duty to its constituents to preserve its
existence and to perpetuate conditions
which will permit it to work • for its
avowed object, she said. Taking up, then,
the special provision for membership in
the general federation, which states that
clubs organized for social, literary, artis
tic and scientific culture, shall be eligible,
she called attention ao the fact that the
provision did not say or mean that all
such clubs should be admitted. Its in
tention was to give notice that clubs out
side of those classes need not apply.
A Popular Mistake.
The popular mistake in this matter is
the assumption that membership, instead
of being a privilege granted by the mem
bership committee after considering the
two principles laid down, is an inalienable
right like a civil right. On the contrary,
the question is a social one, for the fed
eration is in reality a body into which
social relations enter largely, and social
equality is a condition which few believe
has any existence or ever will have until
an entire new genus homo is evolved.
'Jin- Real Difficulty.
The real difficulty of the case, said Mrs.
Williams, is that with the spread of the
organization localities have been included
with widely different conditions. This
fact is not recognized in the constitution
of the general federation, but an inflex
ible rule governs all. The reorganization
provisions permitted every state to reg
ulate its own affairs and membership as
it chose. Had this carried in Milwaukee
the color question would never have ex
isted; for then the northern states could
have admitted colored clubs, if they did
not object to associating with their mem
bers, and the southern states could have
excluded such clubs, because under ex
isting conditions there can be no such
association within their borders.
Mrs. Williams was one of the most
earnest advocates of reorganization and
still is, but she does not believe in try
ing to solve the color question in that
way, fearing that it will lead to too
many entanglements. She favors deal
ing with the color question by an amend
ment bearing directly upon the point of
membership. She would have this left
in its inception with the states. Each
state, in her plan, would have a mem
bership committee appointed from the
various sections of the state. Applica
tions submitted Co this committee would
have to receive unanimous indorsement
and then be passed on to the board of
directors of the general federation.
In conclusion, Mrs. Williams expressed
earnestly the hope that Minnesota would
take a dignified attitude and do all in its
power to be a pacifying element instead
of helping to stir up strife. She wanted
its representatives to go as far as pos
sible toward conciliation without waiving
any principles. She is, herself, unwill
ing that the constitution should be
changed to restrict the membership in
the entire federation to white women
but she thinks it no recession from prin
ciple to avoid forcing colored members
on southern state delegations.

THE MINNEAPOLIS JOURNAL.
The Judge Has Been Seeing the
HIS HEALTH IS MUCH IMPROVED
He In Vmnuim'U by Kelmiiinn Soidiern
Tlittl the I'lillipi'tue Wur
Judge Alexander Harrison, much improved
in health, returned las! evening from a
t-wo-montne' trip to Hawaii.
He .--ay^ there i- nothing like a sea voy
age and a sojourn in the funny isles of the
southern Pacific for that "tired feeling."
He left Minneapolis Dm-. 2G, and went
directly to Honolulu. He arrived iv San
Francisco Monday, Feb. 18, on the Mar
iposa which arrived In port five days be
fore the ill-fated Rio de Janeiro. The
judge had no intention of taking tho "Ui»"
and consequently cannot say that he nar
rowly escaped with his life. All blame for
the wreck, he says, attaches to the pilot.
The excitement in the city was intense
when the survivors reached shore with ihe
first tidings of the awful catastrophe.
Thousands of people lined the point and
watched the attempt at rescue. Judge
Harrison went out on one of the first res
cue boats. By that time the only visible
evidence of the sunken liner was the drift.
The Marlposa made tht- trip from Hono
lulu to the Golden Gate in six days. "It
was a very dark trip," said the judge, "so
dark that we sailed almost the entire dis
tance by dead reckoning, by the log and
compass. An unusual feature of the trip
was the fact that we encountered heavy
fogs 600 miles from the California coast.
We did not know just where we were go
ing to strike the coast. Some of us had
begun to fear for our safety. The captain
took the log frequently and made estimates
which ordinarily would be wide of the
mark as to the distance traversed and that
yet to cover. On this occasion, however,
the log proved to be wonderfully accurate.
When we sighted the Farallones we were
only a niile-and-a-half off our course, and
had come across that vast ocean on almost
a bee line. The Sunday night before we
got in was a sleepless one for me. I was
afraid of hidden rocks in the fog which
still completely enveloped us, and I no
ticed the ship was steaming along at a
very slow rate.
Judge Harrison was impressed with the
wonderful resources of Hawaii. He went
all around the island and looked closely
into the sugar industry. On the single
plantation or" Ewa, one of the largest cane
fields, the yield is from eight to twelve
tons per a«re, often reaching the limit
The net profit is $86 per ton.
The labor question is one of the dis
turbing elements in the new life of Ha
waii. Judge Harrison found that the
Japanese laborers, who predominate are
very unsatisfactory. The experiment is
being made of importing alien labor.
Several shiploads of Porto Ricans have
recently been brought over and they have
filled the bill satisfactorily.
Better results are also obtained from
the Portuguese, who are a large element
in the population. One ship load of
negroes was brought over from the
United States, but they proved indolent.
Much . dissatisfaction is felt among the
people with the present system of govern
ment. Municipal government is yet un
known in Honolulu. Whenever the people
want a street paved, a water main or any
other city improvement, there is no com
mon council to do the business. The gen
eral government must first give its per
mission and the cost is then assessed upon
all Hawaii, people being assessed for the
improvement who will derive no benefit
therefrom. Heavy property owners on
whom the assesment would fall heaviest,
don't want a change.
Judge Harrison was interviewed soon
after his arrival by a Honolulu paper.
He was asked for his views on the gov
ernment of Honolulu and gave them with
out stint, urging a general adoption of
the American plan, with the elimination
of the boodling features. The transpor
tation facilities of Honolulu are misera
ble. Mule cars on a few lines do the
business. A British company which holds
a franchise on most of the streets, re
fuses to vacate.
"There is a wonderful chance for young
men out there," said the judge. "Before
I left. Judge Humphries, the present cir
cuit judge, told me that if any yonng law
yers asked what the chances were for the
practice of their profession out there, to
advise them to come as soon as possible
and get rich. He says it is the best field
in the world to-day for lawyers. As an
instance, he points to his own experi
ence. After practicing t>ut a few years,
he was making $12,000 a year when ap
pointed to the bench."
Philippine War About Over.
Judge Harrison is persuaded that the
war in the Philippines is on its last legs.
He thinks there hasSbeen a practical ces
sation of hostilities. He learned from
returning soldiers who arrived in San
Francisco while he was there that the au
thorities at Manila had finally discovered
the identity of the wealthy Manila mer
chants and the consuls who were stealthi
ly aiding the insurgent cause and keeping
alive the insurrection by placing their re
sources at the disposal of Aguinaldo's fol
lowers. As a result, several deportations
had been ordered, not a word of which,
for political reasons, had been tele
graphed to the United States. The sol
diers all declared that the war is over,
and that "soldiering" in the Philippines
is tame now. With their last resources
cut off. the scattered bands of insurrectos
still operating could not hope to hold out

thoritatively Denied. -
Special to The Journal.
Orookston, Minn.. March 7.— G. A. Morri
son, subagent of the Red bake band of
Chippewae, was In Crookston to-day and
gave an altogether different account of the
feeling among the members of the Red
Lake band concerning the project to dis
pose of the western portion of the ceded
Red Lake reservation.
I have read in The Journal, said the
venerable man whom the Indians all iove
and whose word and wish is law among them,
a statement authorized by the commercial
club of Thief River Falls, to the effect that
the Red Lake Indians are ready and willing
to cede the western part of the diminished
I reserve, upon payment into their fund of a
sum equal to Sl'.SO per acre for the lands
so ceded, In amount eleven townships.
Now, there is something wrong about this.
The Indians have taken no such action,
held no meeting at which the matter has been
even informally discussed, and are not em
powered to make such an agreement.
The matter has cprtainly been misrepre
sented by the Thief Falls people. Why, the
Indians have heard that when Congressman
Eddy met the business men of Thief River
in November last to discuss this matter.
either he or some members of the commercial
club said that there would be no trouble
in forming a syndicate of speculators who
would purchase the entire tract of eleven
townships and pay $.1 per acre for it.
The Indians have their ideas exalted ac
cordingly. They've heard of the land boom
and think they -will realize $10, $15 or per
haps $20 an acre for that land. They're in
the real estate business themselves now, and
$2.50 per acre would not be thought of for
j a minute, even if they were so situated that
the land could be sold, which is not the case.

PETER ANDJTHE MAYOR
Alderman Nelson Says He Did Not
Alderman Peter Nelson is not at all
pleased with the use of his name in con
nection with Mayor Ames' West Baden ex
periences. It was all a mistake, he de
clares. "From the papers it appears,"
said he this morning, "that I was back
in Minneapolis yesterday and engaged In
telling all I knew about the mayor's do
ings in West Baden. Now, I never got
back home until this morning, and here is,
a telegram to prove it. I stopped off over
in Wis«onsln to look after some business.
Otherwise I should have been back sev
eral days ago. So whatever has been said
must have come from the other fellow
But I guess the facts are about as stated!
The doctor is paying strict attention to
business down there and is looking simply
'•out of sight." You won't know him when
he gets back here."
The date of the mayor's return to his
official duties is now set a: next Monday.
Alderman Nelson found his boy critically
111 with pneumonia upon his return this
It Will Result in the Repair of a
The 24-inch water main crossing the
river at Twentieth avenue N was put out
of service more than a year ago by a log
Jam. There have been accidents of that
sort before and this time the water de
partment closed the gates on each side of
the river and decided to worry along
without that main. A few days ago there
was a fire on Thirteenth avenue NE, near
the river, and only three of the eight
steamers on the spot could be used on ac
count of lack of water.
Fire Chief Canterbury took the matter
up with the water committee yesterday
and insisted that the broken main be re
paired, and imediately. In the event of
a big fire in that locality the department
would be badly handicapped by reason of
the insufficient water supply, he said. If
the water department wouldn't attend to
the matter he would go at it himself. It
wasn't right to take such chances, he in
. The committee agreed with him and
ordered Supervisor McConnell to begin at
once the work of repairing the main. The
latter sent for the department diver this
morning and will have a crew on the spot
The main across the river at Thirty
second avenue N is also broken and out
of service. But unless there is absolute
necessity for it. nothing will be done In
this case until the proposed new bridge
at that point is built, when the main will
be swung under the bridge above the high
water mark and out of reach of accident.

ONE LARGE ROUND CENT
MORAX GETS A HEAVY VERDICT
Kai-ftiuus Jury In Suit \uuin>.<
lii-own llruN.. >l. Co. Brings
iv This Decision.
The jury in the case of Edward M. Mor
gan against Brown Brothers' mercantile
company, which has been on trial for the
last week before Judge Simpson, yester
day returned a verdict for the plaintiff.
It was a far call from the amount asked
for and the sum awarded.
Moran, who charged malicious prosecu
tion, demanded $15,000 as balm for his
lacerated feelings. The jury was of the
opinion that the healing process could be
effected with a much smaller amount.
The jury assessed the extent of the
damages at just 1 cent.
"I am not going to be stingy with the
money," said Mr. Moran. "My attorney,
Mr. Garrity, will be the beneficiary of my
good fortune. I am going to turn the en
tire sum over to him. He's worked very
hard in this case and you may be sure I
wouldn't cut him off without a cent."
DR. BERG'S DEFENSE
It Is Outlined in n Talk by His At- \
The case against Dr. Ole J. Berg.charged j
with practicing medicine without a license,
was finally continued over the term yes-
I terday, the principal witness of the state
still being absent in Dakota. The defend- 1
ant and his attorney, C. F. Baxter, say J
that the state could save expense if the ,
arguments on the demurrer to the indict- «
ment could be heard without further de- (
"The overzealous persons who were in
strumental in securing Dr. Berg's indict
ment," said Mr. Baxter, "were so anxious
to secure a conviction that they failed to j
take into consideration the fact that not i
every regular practicing physician is re
quired to have a license to practice in this j
state. They forget that all physicians who j
were regular practitioners at the time or j
before the passage of the.law requiring an j
examination, are exempt. Dr. Berg comes j
under that head. He was practicing medi
cine in this state for several years before
the la* was enacted. When it comes to j
determining his right to practice his pro- !
fession we will quickly show to the satis
faction of the court that there is no case'
Mr. Baxter further made the charge that,
although his client had filed affidavits with
the state board of examiners when the law ;
went into effect, showing that he was
qualified to continue in practice, no record ,
had been made of them.
TO SAVE TROIBI.E
Frank Beinleicht Went to Jail— Vow
He Goea Again.
Frank Burkhard, who explained that he
seldom used his true name of Beinliecht
because people could not understand it,
waa sentenced yeeterday to two years
and a half at hard labor in the peniten
tiary at Stillwater. He had changed his
plea and admitted grand larceny.
Beinliecht said a few words in broken
English in his own behalf before sen
tence was pronounced. He admitted that
he had previously served time for petit
larceny. He made the unusual explana
tion that although he had pleaded guilty to
the petit larceny charge and had been sent
to the workhouse for twenty days, he was |
none the less innocent.
He had pleaded guilty, he said, simply as
an expedient. He knew that his word j
would not stand before that of a police
"Rather than be bound over and serve
time, anyway," he explained, "I pleaded
guilty to save time and trouble."

Grand Forks, N. D., March 7.— A dis
patch from Grand Forks, states that the
