TIPS BY THOSE WHO KNOW
T. H. Rooney of Fargo says gasolene en
fiiues for driving threshers take well with the
farmer. "If we get a fair crop through the
wheat belt," said Mr. Rooney, ''the demand
for threshers will be large. Several new ma
chinery concerns are coming to Fargo and
the volume of business done at that point this
year will be big."
Ed Getts is in from the west. He says the
hilly sections of the Dakotas have plenty of
drifted snow. In the valleya all is lovely.
Getts sells coffins. The demand is steady,
he says, Old Mortality never quits work.
There are some sections of the northwest
where the undertakers are waiting patiently
for their collections on last year's accounts,
but as a general thing the most of them are
satisfied with business conditions.
Visiting trainmen are interested in the
progress made by the railroad men's lobby
at Madison. The employes of the North-West
ern in Wisconsin object to the "double
header." They claim that running the double
headers simply increases their work and risk
■without adding to their compensation. They
want it prohibited by law. Such a law would
affect every railroad in the state, but the
Xortn-Western men are doing all the lobby
ing. The Milwaukee made an. agreement sat
isfactory to its men.
George B. Clifford of Grand Forks, one of
the men who boomed Dakota immigration in
earlier days, is in the city. Mr. Clifford
thinks that indications point to a big year
in land sales in. North Dakota,
Ed Noonan of Truman, Minn., is one of the
visiting machine men. Minnesota implement
dealers generally look for a money making
year. The new arrivals will be obliged to
purchase early in the spring.
A. L. Moody, one of Fargo's big dealers, is
in the city making his spring purchases.

No act of a civic body in Minneapolis
ever met with such acclaims of gladness
as the announcement to-day of President
John Washburn. of the chamber of com
merce, that the building would be closed
on St. Patrick's day. Loyal Irishmen and
Irish women throughout the city have ex
pressed themselves as grateful beyond
words for this signal mark of respect on
the part of a prosaic body like the chamber
The action of the chamber's directors was
no sooner made public than Mayor Ames
telegraphed from West Baden ordering all
public buildings closed in honor of the
patron saint of old Ireland. By the may
or's orders, all public buildings and build
ing houses -will be closed and the day will

It lias been many years since the sons
and daughters of the "ould sod" looked
forward to the wearing of the green with
such high hope. Plans for the observance
of the day are not yet matured, but there
is no doubt but that appropriate exercises
will be held wherever two or three Irish
men are gathered.
The fact that the chamber of commerce
decided to observe the day without one
dissenting vote, caught the generous Irjsh
heart of the community, and expressions
of gratitude and lofty appreciation have
poured into the chamber from all quar
Comments on the Innovation.
Roger Vail, editor of the Irish Standard,
Let Irishmen everywhere respect the noble
men of the Minneapolis Chamber of Com

that all public buildings are closed and that
no business is transacted on March 17, may
Judge William Donahue, who carried the
Minnesota banner at the democratic con
vention that discovered William Jennings
Bryan, has written a warm letter to Presi
dent Washburn thanking him for his court
esy, and reminding him that Irishmen can
vote as well as other people.
Other congratulatory letters received by
Mr. Washburn express the feelings of the
"Gavins," J. C. Scallen, John J. McHale,
Mike Nash, Ed Conroy and many others.
Joseph T. Mannix has taken the matter
up directly with Mayor Ames in the fol
lowing night telegram:
Dr. A. A. Ames, West Baden, Ind.—The
tardy recognition which has at length been
extended to wearers of the green by the
determination of yourself and the Minne
apolis Chamber ol Commerce to observe St.
Patrick's day in Minneapolis by closing all
places of business and calling upon good
citizens of whatsoever creed to permit their
minds to dwell for a few brief moments on
the man whose idiosyncrasies made it unde
sirable for a reptile to maintain a habita
tion in the country which has for centuries
been under the iron heel of British oppres
sion, is truly appreciated. Yours truly,
—J. T. Mannix.

Arrested in Wisconsin.
New York, March 8. —Captain Titus of
the detective bureau says that Alfred
Parsons, the New Haven prisoner charged
with attempting to swindle President
Hadley of Yale, is not Eugene Lascelles,
but that he is Ross Raymond, almost as
well known as Lascelles.
Captain Titus says Raymond was arrest
ed in 1886 on a charge of forging a check
and was sentenced 10 two years impris
onment. The complainant then was Ed
ward Copp. On Nov. 22, 1889, he was
sentenced to ten years' imprisonment in
England for forging a bill of exchange on

OFTEN ARE THE BEGINNING
Stop Your Cough and Avoid
We Will Guarantee That We
Can Do It For You.
Our Vinol is the Remedy for all
Vinol is a preparation that is de
licious to take.
It consists of a delicate table wine
in which has been dissolved the active
curative principles that are found in
the liver of the live cod, and to which
cod-liver oil owes its reputation as a
remedy for coughs, colds and all wast
If there in any one who has a cough,
a tendency to take cold easily, or a
dread of consumption, we would like
to have them call and permit us to ex
plain what we know about Vinol and
why we believe it will cure all such
troubles more surely and quickly than
any other remedy ever given to the
Following 1 is a letter which has just
come to hand and which shows how
bene icially Vinol acted in one instance:
"I had a severe cough of long stand
ing. I was advised by friends to give
your Vinol a trial, which I did. Before
taking it I had tried many other reme
dies for coughs without obtaining any
relief. With Vinol it was differsnt. I
have now used four bottles of it, and
am pleased to say my cough has almost
entirely left me. I have been decidedly
benefited by its use in every way. Very
truly yours."—H. E. Small, Boston,
Vinol acts beneficially upon the di
gestive organs, enabling them to ob
tain for themselves the elements from
which are made firm healthy flesh
tissue, sound muscle, strong bone struct
ure and pure blood.
We recommend Vinol unreservedly.
If you will call on us at our store, we
will tell you why we have such faith in
this new wine of cod-liver oil.
We guarantee that if you suffer from
any symptoms that indicate troubles for j
which we know Vinol is intended, we
will refund to you your money if you
don't find Vinol helps you.

NO MINERS' STRIKE
Last Year's Scale Is Practically
Agreed ' On.
Veto York Sun Special Servi ie
Altoona, Pa., March 8. —At the miners'
and operators' scale conference, the min
ers, true to their instructions, insisted on
the eight hour working day, an increase in
the price of machine mining and a dead
work scale of 50 cents per yard, for rip
ping and blasting. The operators present
ed a reduction of 5 cents per ton for pick
mining, insisting this rate was paid in the
Maryland competing field. The miners of
fered a compromise which virtually ac
cepts last year's scale without amend
It is probable that the conference will
adjourn after each side has ratified the old
scale oft. the basis of 60 cents per ton for
pick mining. There is not the least like
lihood of a strike.
Spingfield.^ll., March B.—The scale com
mittee of the miners' and operators' con
ference reached an agreement in the Wil
liamson county controversy and all dan
ger of the threatened strike is now past.
The scale for Williamson county will re
main at 42^c the same as it was last
year. The miners contended for a 3c
advance, and on this proposition the con
ference has been tied up all week.

NEW OFFICE BL'D'G
J. E. Bell Will Build One for Com-
SECOND AYE AND THIRD STREET N.
It Will Be Fire-Proof—Work Will
Be Begun at an Early
A new office building for the accommo- i
dation of commision brokers is the latest I
construction news which The Journal
has to give out. The building will be
erected on the norihwest corner at the |
intersection of Third street and Second j
avenue N. It will cover a ground space of
175 feet on»Second avenue and 100 feet on
Third street, and will be a Mnost im
portant addition to that section of the j
J. E. Bell, president of the Hennepin
County Savings bank, will improve the
property at a present outlay of about $50,
--000. The new structure will be designed
especially for an office building, and will
be of superior fire-proof construction
The plans for the building, which are
being drawn by Architect C. S. Sedgwick,
contemplate a three-story structure with
foundations and wall sufficient to carry ad
ditional stories as the demand for offices
in that locality increases. At present the
great number of commission brokers, many
of whom represent foreign houses, have no
office building. They are scattered here
and there in the down town district to
their great discomfort and annoyance. The
necessity for a modern building expressly
adapted to the needs of the commission
brokers has long been apparent on com- I
mission row, but no one thought of put- ;
ting up a building until Mr. Bell decided j
to make the investment. The property is
In an ideal locality for the brokers who j
are elated over the prospect of having a j
home of their own. The plans call for a
building of handsome design which will i
be an ornament to the commission district. I
It is Mr. Bell's intention to begin work
early this season in the hope of having
"Commission Building" ready for occu
pancy by next fall.
NOT AN EARL
Howland'* Brother Denies That He
1* of Xoble Birth.
Pittsburg, March B.—C. B. Howland. or
Harrison, who died in the Allegheny gen
eral hospital of typhoid fever yesterday,
was thought to be the "Earl of War
grave. In letters found among his effects
in which he was addressed as Cecil Sher
brooke Beaumont Howland, Earl of War
grave. One letter from "Beresford, Gray
& Seymour, of London, England," notified
Howland of the death of his uncle and
his. succession to the title and estates.
Howland was of engaging manners, hand
some and his conversation indicated the
educated and traveled gentleman. He
rarely referred to his past life, but upon
one occasion stated that he had spent
three large fortunes.
He was superintendent of one of the
departments of the Pressed Steel Car com
pany at McKee's Rocks.
Howland came to Pittsburg about a year
ago and sometime later revisHed England.
A. J. Harrison, a brother, who came
from New York to claim the body, denied
emphatically that his brother was of noble
birth, but was silent as to the cause for
the difference in the names. He admitted
that his brother had earned several for
tunes and lost them again ia speculation.
