About Our Busy People
WHAT THEY ARE DOIN
The weather prophets tell us that the
backbone of winter is broken, so perhaps
It will not be too early to talk a little
about the new lines of spring underwear
just received by Messrs. E. G. Barnaby &
Co., corner Nicollet and Fourth street.
They have displayed some of the styles in
the show windows, but it will be worth
your while to step inside and examine the
different varieties. Bargain stores may
offer you ridiculously low prices, but the
man who wants quality knows that it can't
be had for a song. No merchant is selling
gold dollars for less than 100 cents.
For standard qualities Barnaby & Co.
are easily the leaders in Minneapolis.
Nothing made surpasses the Lewis gar
ments, which they always carry, or the
product of the famous mills in Stuttgart,
Germany. While in there yesterday they
also showed me a superior assortment of
hosiery. This season's designs are par
ticularly attractive, and the fellow who
wants to be "it" can find socks that will
be "heard a block."

Many members of the legislature are
discussing the prospective work of the

sentiment In favor of referring the Ja

consider carefully the constitutionality
and equity of the measure. This is op
posed by the friends of the measure, who
say it Is no* properly a question for the

AND WHAT THEY SAY
I went to a very pretty reception one
evening this week, where music was the
principal feature of entertainment. As
the music room was rather crowded, I lis

me. Some one was executing the most dif
ficult compositions upon a piano perfectly.
I gradually edged my way to the door and
felt just a little like a "farmer" to find
that I had been listening to a pianola. I
don't know, however, as one can be blamed
for not recognizing the difference, for
such artists as Paderewski declare that
the work of the pianola is an exact re
production of hand playing, and I do know
that everyone present was delighted with

Senator MeGovern made a hard fight in
the senate yesterday afternoon to prevent
that body from recommending the drain

provisions of the bill in its present form

THE MINNEAPOLIS JOURNAL.
PRETTY TEAM RACE
It Was McCleary and Dowling
Against Eddy and Somerville,
AND THE FORMER WON OUT
The Xew Conference Committees
Cannot Meet Until Next
Another skirmish in the house yesterday
afternoon - settled the hopes of Messrs.
Larson and Somerville, and while the re
apportionment matter will be in the hands
of a new conference committee for several
days, the result is practically < settled.
The house conference committee report
ed late yesterday afternoon that It could
not agree with t^e senate conferees. Lar
son then moved t'aat the house concur in
the senate amendments. This was lost
by a more decisive vote than before. The
speaker then appointed Messrs. Anderson,
Stites and Nyquist as the new committee.
Senator E. J. Jones of the senate con
ference committee, left for home last
evening and the committee cannot meet
until Tuesday. There is little doubt but
that the committee will agree to recede
from the Somerville amendment, though
it may compromise by retaining Waseca in
the first district.
Victory tor the Speaker.
Redwood county will have to stay in the
seventh district. This will be a victory,
for Dowling and McCleary, against Eddy
and Sonaerville. Eddy's friends did not
want Redwood county in the seventh, as
it would give the lower counties of the
district a majority. They therefore joined
hands with the Somerville men, who want
ed Redwood to stay in the second. Red
wood is counted an anti-McCleary ccmnty,
and if the Brown county senator goes after
McCleary next year, he will miss the dele
gation from Redwood.
For reasons just the opposite of the
above, McCleary was anxious to lose Red
wood county, and his second district
friends supported Bowling in the effort to
keep the committee bill intact. Redwood
will be one of the largest counties in the
seventh district, and if Dowling goes after
the congressional nomination, the delega
tion from Redwood is pretty sure to be
in bis camp.
The Basis of the Delay.
The tie up of the paat week and the ap
pointment of the two conference commit
tees has been all on account of this little
side issue. Redwood county was the bone
of contention, Dowling and Somerville
both pulling for it. The house backed
Dowling, and the senate stood by Somer
vill« and Eddy as long as there was any
show for them. When the house voted
Larson down so emphatically yesterday,
he gracefully gave up the fight, and said
Redwood would be districted with a lot of
good fellows anyway.
Probate Judges' Salaries.
Senator Coller's bill fixing the salaries of
probate judges was passed yesterday by the
senate. Under its terms, the scale of sal
aries will be as follows: Counties having a
population of 3,000 and under, $3,00 per year;
from 3,000 to 6,000, $475 per year; 6,000 to
9,000, $650 per year: 9,000 to 13,000, $825 per
year; 18,000 to 15,000, $1,000 per year; 15,0<i0
to 18,000, $1,175 per year; 18,000 to 23,000
$1,350 per year; 23,000 to 30,000, $1,300 per
year; 30,000't0 36.000, $1,800 per year; 36,000
to 44,000, $2,000 per year; 44,000 to 88,000,
such salary as now filed by law. Heunepin
county is not affected.
Heard From Its Friends.
The Johnsrud local option and dispensary
bill was considered last evening by the hous<»
committee on temperance, at aa open meet*
ing. Senator Halvoraon and Representative
Jacobson spoke in its favor, and the com
mittee adjourned without taking action. A
hearing will be given later to the opponents
of the bill.

WANTS OF THE Ul
Veterans Visit the Legislature and
Give It Advice.
OPPOSED TO THE PETERSON BILL
The Depart men Commander, Upholds
the Sy»teru Now in. Force nt
In paying a visit to the house to-day,
members of the state encampment, G. A.
R., did not forget either to acknowledge
past bounties on the part of the legisla
ture or to indicate those measures in
which the order ia interested this session.
After gracefully thanking the legislature
for the kindness and consideration it had
always exhibited towards the survivors of
the civil war Judge Ell Torrance, past
department commander, dwelt upon the
appropriateness of setting apart rooms in
the new capitol building for a state head
quarters of the Q. A. R.
A SenHitive Point.
Captain Harries, the newly elected de
partment commander, touched upon the
withholding of pensions by the board of
trustees at the soldiers home. He very
tactfully handled the Peterson bill for in
creasing the amount soldiers at the home
ara allowed to retain from their pensions
by saying that some measures were neces
sary In the interests of discipline. It was
fairest to everyone concerned to withhold
just the allowance of pension money the
board retained under the present law.
Some restrictions there must be and they
could only be enforced through the rules
of tho board.
Ex-Gov. 1\ e« Speaks.
Former Lieutenant Governor Gideon S.
Ives also advocated a G. A. R. headquar
ters in the new capitol, saying the twin
cities both favored the plan and that a
bill setting apart such accommodations
for the G. A. R. would soon be introduced
The order is also Interested in the
measure providing for the burial of old
soldiers, inmates of any of the state in
stitutions who, happened to die destitute.
The delegation included most of the vet
erans who have come to St. Paul from out
side points and on motion of Mr. Riley,
himself a veteran, ten minutes was set
aside during which the privileges of the
floor were extended to the visitors.
Red River Valley Damage.
The memorial asking congress to ap
point a federal commission to investigate
and report upon, the drainage of the Red
River valley was introduced by Mr. Jacob
son. It was agreed to without a dissent
There wes received from the department
of Minnesota, G. A. R., a copy of resolu
tions passed at the late encampment, ask
ing appropriations of $12,500 for finishing
the top floors and for general repairs of
the cottages and hospitals, and of $15,000
for a new kitchen and dining room at the
Most Put Up Securities.
Life insurance interests will watch the
progress of the Berg bill with some at
tention. It requires insurance companies
doing business on the natural premium
plan to determine the net cash value of.
all policies in force in this state and to
deposit with the state auditor in securi
ties the net cash value when so ascer
tained. Companies operating upon this
plan are brought within the jurisdiction
of the insurance commissioner.
BOARD OF CONTROL
The Bill Passes the House After
- Vigorous Debate.
Mr. Torson moved the previous question
in an attempt to cut off debate on the
board of control bill, but afterwards with
drew the motion when the chair stated
that it would put an end to all debate upon
the amendments. Mr. Peterson attacked
the bill as vigorously as on the afternoon
before; Mr. Mallory came to his assist
ance, declaring that there would be cre
ated a gigantic trust. The vote was as

A memorial to congress in relation to
the drainage of the Red river valley was
introduced in the Minnesota senate this
morning by Senator Myran. Congress
men of Minnesota and the Dakotas are
urged to use their influence to secure the
appointment of a federal commission to
investigate conditions in the Red river
valley and make a report to congress.
it is stated that over 20,000,000 acres of
land are exposed to overflow and that the
annual damage by these inundations av
erages over $500,000. This vast territory,
it is added, now supports over a million
people, but with a serviceable system of
drainage canals, locks and reservoirs to
control high water, could easily support
5,000,000 people. An appropriation of a
million dollars would be sufficient to pro
vide the necessary drainage.
DintinguiNhed G. A. K. Visitors.
A delegation of distinguished G. A. R.
men visited the senate and a recess was
taken in their honor. President Smith
named Senators McQill, McGovem and
Young as a committee to escort the dele
gation iuto the chamber and invited Ell
Torance, judge advocate general; Captain
Harries, the new department commander,
and Gideoc S. Ives, past department com
mander, to seats beside him on the rost
rum. Their remarks to the senate were
substantiately the same as those made in.

propriating money for new buildings at
the soldiers' home, and other measures
of interest to the old soldiers.
Anderson, the Strong Man.
Representative Anderson seems to be
fully as influential in the senate as in the
house. By his efforts among the senators
he secured a reconsideration of Senator
Fitzpatrick's bill for an electric light
plant in Winona which had been defeated
by a majority vote after hours of talk
by Senator Fitzpatrick, and to-day the
bill was passed. This morning Senator
Fitzpatrick made another fervid speech,
making the plea that the Winona electric
light' contract would expire on April 1,
and the city would then be dark or in
the merciless clutches of the electric
company. Senator Hospes did not believe
the danger was very grave, and objected
to having a measure forced on Winona
Jn such a manner. The author of the bill
retorted that the representatives of the
electric light plant of Winona had been
at the capitol for days lobbying against
Senator Young intimated that if it was
the purpose of employes of corporations to
advocate the submission of the question
of municipal ownership to a vote of the
people, it was something unheard of in
his experience, and at any rate their ob
ject was a much fairer one than the prop
osition urged by Senator Fitzpatrick.
The result was that Winona was given
her wish by a vote of 36 to 19, and the
senate presented the spectacle of the ma
jority party being turned down in favor of
a minority member. But then, it is ex
plained that a certain house member had
threatened to block every bit of senate
legislation that came to the house if the
Winona electric light bill was defeated a
Practice of Optometry.
Regulating the practice of optometry or
"fitting glasses" is not an easy matter.
Senator Sweningsen secured the other day
the passage of a bill regulating this Im
portant art, but this morning Senator J.
D. Jones was able to have the vote re
considered and the bill put back on gen
eral orders. He insisted that if this bill
was allowed to stand unamended it would
prevent country jewelers from using slid
ing scales or printed cards in the sale of
spectacles and glasses.
Kot Taken I p in the Senate.
The board of control bill was to have
been the special order of business in the
senate this afternoon, but Senator Brower
suggested that the discussion be post
poned until next Tuesday afternoon, and
his suggestion -was adopted.

Mrs. 0. H. Robbins and N. H. Slater, all
well known butter-makers of this state,
were awarded medals of merit at the Paris
exposition but the world's fair commis~
sioners have refused to present the med

been paid. Believing that the prizes won
by the buttermakers reflect great credit
upon Minnesota and will be of great value
to her dairy interests, Senator Knatvold
has offered a bill appropriating $650 for
the purchase of the medals.
