ST. PAUL'S STRIKE
Master Painters Say Its a Question
- of Union Recognition.
No settlement of the painters' strike in
St. Paul is in sight. Tile Master Paint
ers' association has issued a statement of
the circumstances leading up to the pres
ent trouble, declaring that no concessions
have yet been made to the union, and that
none will be. It is a case not of hours of
labor or wages, but of recognition of the.,
union. The members declare their inten
tion to put a stop to sympathetic strikes.
They declare that when the trouble is set
tled it will be found that there is no
building trades council in existence. / Most
of the painters have already withdrawn
from the union, they claim.

ERRORS IN LAWS
Many Bill* Paused by the Legisla
ture in Bad Shape.
Captain C. C. Whitney, state printer, says
that the work of enrolling done at the recent
session of the legislature was the poorest on
record. Many mistakes "were: made in both
engrossing and enrolling, and some' laws may
be invalidated entirely jj by | the - omission of
quotation marks or punctuation, or by chan
ges in wording. As a rule, the court reads
: into the statute the obvious meaning when a
mistake has been made, but this causes trou
ble, and cannot always be done. ■"■; ■
j It has been suggested that a new office be
I created during the session of the legislature.
A good, careful lawyer should -be selected,
with an expert proofreader to assist him, and
I made responsible for the correctness- of all
I engrossed and enrolled bills. He should read
over every word, comparing it with the origi
i nal bill, and be put. under bonds to ensure the
I absolute correctness ;of the work. :.: The bills
: are now ; hurriedly compared, but most of the
comparing is done between engrossed and en
rolled copies,"' and both . are likely to be at
fault. Such an official would save trouble and
in some eases prevent serious: errors. •; The
mistake in the Miller bill taxing express com
panies two years ago would have ; been cor
rected by such an official, and several thou
sand dollars in taxes would have been saved
to the state. Each-house has a % committee
whose duty it is to examine and approve en
grossed and enrolled bills, but their work is
a mere. formality.

140,000 ACRES TO BE PUT UP
Values Are Appraised at Pmm «5
to ?20-Only 1G Per Cent
One hundred and forty thousand acres
of state land will be put up > for sale at
public | auction this spring. State Audi
tor Dunn has arranged a series of ' pub
lic auctions at the county seats of coun
ties where land is to be sold, beginning
May 16 at Cambridge, Isanti ' county,' and
closing June 4, at Walker, Cass county.
Unusually good prices will be received
for state land this spring. Another \ in
ducement is that the interest on the con
tracts resulting from future sale will be
only 4 per cent, unless the principal is
paid up within ten years, when 5 ■ per
cent is charged. The low interest rate
will attract many.
Much of the land will raise good crops,
but a large share of the cut-over tim
ber land is better adapted for grazing. It
is being rapidly taken up by farmers from
Illinois and lowa, who are starting stock
farms on the land cleared for them by
None of the land may be sold for less
than | tlya appraised value, which ranges
from $5 to $20. Fifteen per cent of the
purchase price has to be paid at the time
of the sale, with interest for one year
on the unpaid balance.". ; Interest -'/.; pay
ments are to be made in advance on June
1 of each year.' The principal may be paid
any. time within forty years. The inter
est on these contracts forms a consid
erable part of the state's revenue, and
the state is in no hurry to •, have them
paid up. as 4 per cent ie better interest
than other investments will bring. -.:'>,
Dates of Sale. '
The sales will take place as follows:
May 16. 11:30 a, m., at Cambridge, Istmtl
county, 5,840 acres.
May 17, 11 a. m., at Anoka, Anoka county,
May 18, 11 a. m., at Elk River, Sherburne

Most of the land is unsold school land.
Some is university land, some belongs to
other state institutions, and some to the
internal improvement fnud. Several tracts
are being resold on account of default
in the payment of interest.
By act of the legislature the auditor is
also directed to sell the state capital
lands in Kandiyohi county, but no date
has yet been fixed for that sale. The land
consists of teu sections, and is well set
tled. Rental has been paid to the county,
which paid the state a fixed sum per year
for the use of the land. The state has ap
plied the revenue from the lands to
draining them, and they are now in ex
cellent condition, and for the most part
improved. Tenants will be paid for the
improvements at the appraised price, un
less they chaose to remove them. The
sale this spring will dispose of most of
the desirable farm land remaining in the
hands of the state.
IVERSON COMES FORTH
Announces Hi, Candidacy for State
Samuel G. Iverson of Rushford, Fillmore
county, will be a candidate for state auditor
before the next republican state convention
Mr. Iverson informed The Journal this
morning that after looking over the field and
consulting with his friends in all parts of the
state, he had decided to enter the race
Though it Is a little early for campaigning,
te is willing to have it understood all over
the state that he will be a candidate when
the time comes.
Mr Iverson ia vow deputy state auditor,
and has been Auditor Dunn's right-hand man
during his six years in office. He has had long
experience in handling business and financial
matters for the state. He was a member of
the legislature from Fillmore county in 1887
and that summer went into the state audi
tor-a office as an accountant, under Auditor
Braden. When Colonel Bobleter became state
treasurer in 1891. Iverson was made his dep
uty, and served with him for four years He
went with Dunn as deputy auditor in' 1895
He was graduated from the law department
of the university in 1893.
Ivorspn haa a state-wide acquaintance, and
his long service In the statehouse gives him
a prestige that makes him a formidable can
didate. If j. f. Jacobson enters the field it
whi be a pretty race. The two are good
friends, and have worked together for years
on the gross earnings fight, in which Dunn
and Iverson have constantly backed the Lac
qm Parle man. Between Jacobson and Iver
son, the railroads would have little choice
Mr. Jacobson had not made up his mind
at the time the legislature adjourned, whether
he would be a candidate or not. He is al
ready being booked for the place by a con
siderable share of the state press, Iverson-S
formal announcement will without doubt
bring out an expression from his friends in
ihe newspaper field. While impetuous as a
speaker, Mr. Jacobson is canny and cautious
in polities, and may be a good while making
up his mind. There ia plenty of time.
Duluth politicians are looking over the field
with a view to entering Odin Halden, present
county auditor of St. Louis county, in the
free-for-al 1. state auditor race.

has been taking levels, finds that White Bear
is on a hill, and that only one or two small
lakes have a higher level. The only hope
for higher water level in White Bear is a
succession of wet seasons, as the drainage
area is very little larger than the lake itself.

SAP NATION'S MONEY
Result of Great Industrial Consoli
dations Effected in N. Y.
GEN. W. D. WASHBURN'S VIEWS
Serious Minded Men Are Alarmed
by the Vast Combination*
"The money of Minneapolis, of Chicago,
of all the great cities of the country, is
being diverted from its legitimate chan
nels to be swallowed up in the maelstrom
of speculation that is running riot in New
York," said Senator W. D. Washburn, who
returned from the east this morning.
Senator Washburn regards the present
trend of commercial affairs with the
gravest concern. He cays that serious
minded men, men accustomed to taking
a conservative view of things, are shak
ing their heads in the east and hinting
at consequences that they can only con
"When I spoke of these monstrous com
binations, or consolidations that are
looming up in the industrial life of this
republic," said the senator, "serious peo
ple evinced the deepest concern. They
are alarmed at the situation and are pre
pared for the outcome. I am not an
alarmist, nor have I any predictions to
make, but this much can be said with
absolute truth. The giant industrial com
binations that have been effected in the
past few weeks have overshadowed all
minor transactions. Legitimate business
deals which do not involve millions have
lost their proportion in the commercial
world of New York. The big consolida
tions have overshadowed everything, and
thrown an unreality, an uncertain Mght on
all transactions. Everything is viewed
from the point of consolidation."
The Vampire of Money.
"It requires a vast amount of money to
float these big schemes, and in that fact
lies a most serious condition. The specu
lators of Wall street are not content with
the money of New York, nor the enor
mous sums secured from English sources,
but they are absorbing the money of this
country to push on their gigantic
schemes. This is the thing that shoulfl
give the people of this nation pause.
When money is diverted from its legiti
mate channels for purely speculative ven
tures, there is danger.
"The financial institutions of the coun
try can doubtless drive a better bargain
for their surplus money in New York
than they can at home. The banks can
loan money on call at a higher rate, and
call it in at a minute's notice. I do not
pretend to say to what extent this is
being done, but I simply point to the ten
dency. If the money of the country is
to be poured into these colossal combina
tions, it cannot remain at home. The
tendency of all this is harmful."
Senator W rashburn spent some time in
Pittsburg investigating a new process of
briquetting coal which he hopes to utilize
in his lignite mines in North Dakota, By
the Pennsylvania process, the senator
says, the briquetting is done without a
binder, which means that no foreign sub
stance is used. There are some proper
ties in the coal which makes its particles
adhere to each other in the new briquet
ting process without the use of tar or
molasses. The senator is also having a
locomotive built which he thinks will burn
lignite coal to good advantage.
The senator says business is flourish
ing in the east, despite the wild state
of things which prevails in the specula
tive world. Stocks are booming and every
thing is going with a rush.
CARRIERS AT WORK
Local Men Are Doing: Their Beat for
the National Convention.
Branch No. 9 of the National Letter
Carriers' association, which is located in
Minneapolis, will issue a fine 150-page
souvenir of Minneapolis for distribution
among the delegates to the convention at
Chattanooga next September. This is one
of the first of the moves to be made by the
branch to secure the 1902 meeting for Min
neapolis. The only competitor so far is
Columbus. A general sentiment exists in
favor of some western town. The local
carriers have taken time by the forelock
and issued circulars to the different
branches, asking them to support Minne
apolis. One hundred and twenty delegates
have been won over already, and with the
aid of the souvenir, which will show fifty
beauty spots in this city, it is felt that
the battle is fairly won.
The entertainment of the guests, who
are generally accompanied by their wives,
will take a large fund. No. 9 has already
appropriated $1,500, and the proceeds
from advertising in the souvenir will be
added. The Commercial Club is co-oper
ating in the dissemination of advertising
C. A. Schwend haa charge of the adver
tising in the souvenir, and carries with
him proper credentials.
WEAK MINDED PRISONERS
Board of Pardons May Act on Two
The board of pardons, at their meeting this
afternoon, gave especial attention to the case
of Fred Hittmau, now a life prisoner at
Stillwater, who was sent up from Olmsted
county in 1878. He is not in full control of
his mind, and his relatives in Germany agree
to send for him and take care of him if re
Senator Knute Kelson recommends the par
don of Henry Jackson, another weak-minded
life prisoner, sent up from Crow Wing coun
ty for murder. Senator Nelson says that he
intended to commute the man's sentence to
ten years when he was goveronr, but neg
lected to do it until elected senator, when it
was too late.
"Will Form a Part of the Fan-Ameri
can Minstrel Show.
The Pan-American minstrels have engaged
a number of specialists for the second part
of their entertainment, to be given at the
Lyceum May 6, 7 and 8. They will make the
show one of the best ever seen in the city.
Prominent among them are Mathews and
Norman in a globe and unicycle act that
haR met with pronounced success in the east.
A chorus of fifty voices, in charge of B. A.
Rose, is making great headway.

GET THE MOST OUT OF A TRIP
The advantages of making a tour to
Europe with private escorted parties are
«o marked, that this mode of travel
abroad has become the favorite one. All
the petty annoyances attending the in
dividual traveler, which are constant in
Europe, are overcome, and the escort as
sumes those burdens for every member
of his party. -This gives the individual
members a free rein to enjoy to the full
est extent the glories of the old world.
Both of "Eichman's tours to Europe" ar
ranged for this summer will be personally
escorted. They are planned with the ut
most care, and the parties will be con
ducted through the most fascinating por
tions of all Europe. The fares, which are
inclusive, provide among other * things,
first-class hotels, first cabin passage on
the ocean, carriage drives, English-speak
ing local guides, transfers, fees to ser
vants, porters, railroad guards and guides.
The travel in Europe will be done by day
light on express trains, in compartments
especially reserved. To avoid conspic
uousness, and in order that each indi
vidual member may receive careful at
tention, the membership of each party
will be very limited.
Manager Sichman will be pleased to
confer with intending (European tourista
at his office, 707 Phoenix Building.

For the Parcbue of Koehier'x • TUe
The proposition of buying Robert Koeh
ler's masterpiece, "The Strike," for the
city of Minneapolis has been well re
ceived. Toward raising the sum necessary
for its purchase a good beginning was
made during the exhibition of the So
ciety of Fine Arts just closed, all tihe
subscriptions made thus far being volun
Now that the exhibition is closed a com
mittee has been formed to solicit subscrip
tions and new impetus will be given to the
work. It should be clearly understood
that the picture is to become the property,
not of any society or association, but of
the city of Minneapolis and that it is to
be purchased by popular subscription.
Since the purchase money is to be raised
by popular subscription, it has been
thought wise to make the soliciting com
mittee representative of, the city, and it
includes society people and professional
and business men. This committee will
call upon the citizens in person or other
wise and it is hoped the response will be
prompt and generous. People about leav
ing the city or others not found soon by
the committee may send their contribu
tions to J. S. Bradstreet, 208 Seventh
street S, or to E. C. Gale, 309 New York
Life building and such contributions will
be credited and promptly receipted.

as enrolled follow: Mrs. C. C. Bovey,
