Two reports were submitted by the spe
cial committee to- which the various
amendments were referred. The majority
report was moved to pass by Senator Sny
der and Senator Johnson promptly moved
the substitution of the minority report.
The Majority Report.
The majority report recommended ihet
the board of control shall supersede the
state board of corrections and charities,
the managing boards of the insane hos
pitals, the institutes for defectives other
thau the schools for deaf and blind, the
etate training school, the state reformatory
and the state prison. It must also appoint
a purchasing agent for the state univer
sity, one for each of the five normal
schools, for the school for the deaf and
blind and for the state public school. No
disbursements are to be made for pur
chases by any of these institutions except
on the warrant of the purchasing agent
who will make out verified statements in
triplicate. Any expenditures for construc
tion, alterations and repairs in excess of
|I,(KH) must be submitted to the board of
control for approval and no contract is to
take effect until it is so approved by the
board, which is also to have general super
The Minority Report.
The minority report places the financial
affairs of all the educational institutions
of the state from the university down to
the state public school under the jurisdic
tion of the board of control, which is not,
however, to have any authority over pri
vate donations or gifts by private indi
vidual. The various boards of the educa-
tional institutions are ie continue to ex-
trcise exclusive control over the educa
tional policy, the courses of study, the
number of teachers and the amount of sal
aries to be paid to them and are to have
general control of the buildings and
One of the chief arguments in favor of
the latter report was that the state uni
versity had been so conducted as in certain
cases to amount to a mismanagement of
Economy at the "IV
To meet the charges of extravagance
and looseness in the expenditure of money
at the state university. Senator Snyder
quoted the following figures;
Harvard University—Number of students
4,081; value of buildings, $5,000,000; annual
income, $1,565,000; per capita cost of student 3

The foregoing figures with the exception
of those of per capita cost for students are
taken from Trubner's Yearbook of Univer
sities for 1901..
Senator Young declared that the uni
versity had been exceedingly well man
aged, but even if there had been any
looseness in the past the university's
finances in the future would be kept in a
businesslik? way if the majority amend
ment was adopted. He urgeid the senators
to leave the bill in such shape that it
would not affront the regents who are hon
orable and conscious gentlemen. He in-
MADE A TEST.
To Prove the Effects of Coffee.
In order to be sure that it really was
coffee that had caused the trouble to my
husband and myself, v.c made a careful
test with the following results: We had
been using coffee, more or less, for twenty
years, and for many years husband was
troubled with headaches, sluggish cir
culation, and diszy spells. I had sick
headaches, stomach trouble and felt nerv
ous and despondent most of the time.
Two years ago we began using Postum
Food Coffee in place of our coffee. Hus
band, soon began to improve, and looked
and appeared like. another person- All
the old, disagreeable symptoms disap
peared. In order to be sure that it was
the coffee that had caaised the trouble he
began drinking coffee again, and the old
dizzy spells, sluggishness and headaches
began to come back. That settled It, and
he immediately dropped coffee for good
and all, and has sinoe been using Postum
and is perfectly healthy.
I have stuck to Postum, and am to-day
a healthy, fleshy, rosy woman, where be
fore I was thha, pale and sallow.
You may believe we know something
about whether coffee agrees with us or
not, and we e.lso know how well Postum
does agree with us.
Mrs. Madison, 128 S Division street
here in Auburn. N. V., has been cured
of indigestion and nervousness by leaving
off coffee and taking up Postum Food
Mrs. Caffrey, 1477 S Salina street, has
been greatly benefited by using Postum
after leaving off coffee.
I know of many cases but only speak
of a few." Mrs. S. E. Webb, 16^ Parker
atreet, Auinirn, N. Y.
tim&ted that the object of the many
amendments was to kill the bill.
Senators Johnson and Underleak retorted
that their amendment had been offered in
good faith, and that they were sincere in
the belief that ft the board of control was
a good thing its beneficent influence should
be extended 1 to all the Institutions of the
state. Senator Young explained that he
had neither of them in mind when he
chanje<l bad faith. He was referring to
those members of the committee who had
proposed certain amendments and had pri
vately informed him that they were op
posed to the board in any form and would
vote against the bill.
Senator McCarthy, in a stirring speech,
said it was unjust to place the high edu
cational institutions of Minnesota under
ihe same control as the institutions for
criminals and insane persons, and the
move would prove disastrous.
Senator Johnson asked Senator Snyder
what his objection was to the minority re
port, as the only real difference was one
of wording. Senator Snyder rather sur
prised the senate by announcing that he
would vote for the bill, no matter which
amendment was adopted, and called upon
Senator Johnson to give the same assur
auce. It had been supposed that Senator
Johnson was out to kill the bill by hook or
crook, and the galleries expected to see
him dodge. But he was not to be outdone,
and announced emphatically that he would
suppon the bill with either amendment.
Minority Amendment la Carried.
The minority amendment was carried by
a decisive majority. Senator Johnson
called attention to the amendment intro
duced a few days ago by Senator Stockwell
providing that reference to the board of
corrections and charities be stricken out
of the bill. It was promptly killed.
Votes CaiiMe Surprise.
Much surprise was created by the votes
of Senators Gausewitz and Stockton. The
original bill gave the board of control ab
solute jurisdiction over the state public
school p.t Owatonna, and the school for
the deaf and blind at Faribault. At the
solicitation of Senators Gausewitz and
Stockton these two institutions were taken
from the management of the board of con
trol and placed in the same class as the
educational institutions. •It was supposed
that their votes were secured for the
measure by granting this. When they
were found voting against the bill they
were harshly criticised by their fellow
Senator Snyder Happy.
Senator Snyder was beaming when in
terviewed by The Journal's repre
sentative after the vote was taken. He
expressed himself as completely satisfied
and announced that the bill would be
' wholly agreeable to the board of regents
of the state university.
(HILTON'S BILL REVIVED
The Senate Passes the Bill Limiting
Dr. Chilton's marriage bill was resusci
tated in the senate this morning and sent
to the house for further treatment. The
measure was defeated in the senate by
the refusal of several members to vote.
Senator Chilton called it from the table
and moved its passage. . •
"I don't believe there will be a marri
age in Mower county if this bill becomes
a law,' declared Senator Sweningsen, and
the senate had a hearty laugh. He simply
meant, however, that - the marriageable
people would go to lowa where they would
not be obliged to file certificates of mental
soundness in order to secure licenses.
Senator Wilson's Sag-gent ions.
Senator Wilson thought the bill should
prohibit marriages between consumptives,
chronic paupers and criminals as well as
the unfortunates named in the bill. But,
he said, it was a step in the right di
rection, meritorious in every way and de
manded by the best interests of the pub
This aroused Fitzpatrick of Winona.
"This bill." he declared, "tries to amend
the laws of God and nature and is beyond
the control of this body. It, moreover,
interferes with a sacred institution. By ex
cluding cartain people from marriage, it
is class legislation in the worst form."
Many queries were directed at the fath
er of the measure as to its effect in regard
to feeble-minded or epileptic men who
married women over 45 years of age. Sen
ator McGowan finally offered an amend
ment exempting such unions from the op
erations of the bill and it was accepted
without obligation. The bill was then
passed 34 to 17, with some laughter at the
expense of the democrats who voted
The proposition to establish a state sana
torium for the treatment of consumptives
has been greatly amended. The sum
asked has been reduced to $10,000 to be
used principally in purchasing land. No
appropriation tor maintenance is asked.
Rill Reimbursing Hill in mi.
Some of the senators looked a little
askance at Senator Jepson when he offered
a bill reimbursing S. D. Hillinan,, court
stenographer at Minneapolis for $441 for
services as commissioner in the proceed
ings to oust Frank C. Metcalf as register
of deeds of Hennepin county. Mr. Jepson,
however, is not responsible for the bill
having introduced it by request.

When the bill was started on its course I
in the senate yesterday afternoon Senator
Roverud offered to amend it by a provision
that it should apply only on future sales

that Minnesota farms were much more de- j

Virginia bonds which were held in large j
quantities by the state et 3 per cent. Some j
of the members, among them Potter and

Reapportionment Bill Put Through

AS A MATTER OF PRECAUTION
Authority of Legislature to Appro*

The reapportionment bill has certainly
been passed enough times by the house
to give it validity. It ■was taken up from
the calendar some days ago and passed.
On a report from the second commjttee on
conference it was passed with amendments
this morning, and then, half an hour later,
was called up on motion of Mr. Laybourn
! and the roll gone over a third time. Sen
ator Daugherty, chairman of the subcom
mittee which drew the bill, was fearful
lest it might have been a mistake to act
upon the bill before the senate had con
sidered the report of the conference com
mittee. Mr. Anderson, chairman of the
joint committee, was responsible for the
action of the house in agreeing to the re
Mr. Schutz offered a resolution asking
•the judiciary committee of the house to
supply an opinion as to the authority cf
the legislature to appropriate money out
of the internal improvement fund for
roads and bridges.
The reapportioninent nut is cracked. The
second conference committee held a session
yesterday afternoon and agreed on a com
promise between the position taken by the
house and that taken by the senate. The
house members offered to accept half the
Somerville amendment, the part leaving
Waseca county in the first district. The
senate members agreed to this, and Red

ALMOST A NEW BILL
Text of the Amendment to Jacob

The house yesterday, when ordering the
Jacobson bill printed, adopted an amend
ment presented by the bill's author. In
explaining this amendment to The
Journal, Mr. Jacobson said that U did
not in any way change the effect of the
bill, but altered its phraseology, making
it conform to the decisions of the courts in
every particular. The essential portion
of the bill is entirely rewritten, and the
following sections are substituted for the
first four sect.ions of the original bill, the

I'MHned Both Huuae*.
Senator Jepson's bill changing the
boundary lines between the thirty-eighth
and forty-fourth senatorial districts passed
both houses yesterday under suspension of
the. rules. The bill adds the equivalent of
tbout two precincts of the 44th dis
trict to the thirty-eighth. The thirty
eighth is safely democratic, and the change
only adds to its democratic majority, while
it changes the forty-fourth from a very
•loubtful district to one naturally repub
lican. As the forty-fourth has grown more
iv population than the other district, the
change is justifiable. The complaint will
come from the democrats of the forty
fourth distric;. and from the city clerk,
who will find six precincts, cut into by this
change. It will necessitate a wholesale
shifting of precinct lines in the third and
tenth wards, in order to avoid having part
of a precinct in one senatorial district and
part in another.
