MRS. BREWER PARDONED.
Mrs. Brewer, an aged woman, living at 80
Water street, St. Paul, was sentenced to the
St. Paul workhouse yesterday for thirty
days. It was charged that she owned a
vicious dog and as she refused to have the
animal shot she was sent to the workhouse.
Later the woman's son rallied his friends
and visited the capitol. Governor Van Sant,
after listening to the case, issued a full par
don for the 'mother. The dog was shot by
Officer Bahneraan of the central station.

October—Portland Aye. I'nurcli
When (he special committee of the
Church of Christ on Portland avenue, went
to Kansas City last fall to induce the
annual missionary conferences of that
church to be held in Minneapolis In Oc
tober of this year, there was admiration
for their courage, but not much confi
dence in their ability to succeed. The
chief difficulty was that the membership
of that church is located bo largely in
the central states, Missouri, Kansas,
Texas, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, In
diana, Ohio and lowa. The young people
were successful, however, and the Port
land avenue church, the only one of the
denomination 'n this city, has on Its
hands the tusk of preparing for and enter
taining these joint conferences, repre
senting h church membership of a million
and a half, and bringing together some
times in favorable localities ten to fifteen
thousand people. They are already hard
at work enlisting the aid of the Commer
cial Club, the newspapers, the railroads,
tbe etreet railway company, and any other
agencies or organizations which may be
able to contribute to the success of the

JOURNAL BUFFALO EXCURSION IS POPULAR
The Journal's Pan-American Excursion, leaving Minneapolis June 18, down the
great lakes on the Northern Pacific Steamships, has certainly struck a popular chord
Judging from the responses from all over the northwest. Applications for tickets
have been coming in a steady stream by mail and wire and the indications are that
long before the late of leaving Minneapolis the limited accommodations offered will all
be taken. There is a great chance that there will be many disappointed ones.
As a matter of fact there are just 125 tickets for sale and Journal readers
who have gone on Journal excursions know that means just 125 and no more. To en-
Joy one self on a trip there must be freedom or suggestion from anything like a
crowd and the 125 people who form The Journal's party can be assured com
fort and a good time in large measure.
The steamships are the fastest, finest, largest on the green lakes, the route is
down the great chain of inland seas and is full of rest, recreation, sightseeing and
solid enjoyment and with the special •Journal" schedule enabling visits and car
riage drives about Duluth, Mackinac Island, Detroit and Cleveland 10 say nothing of
all arrangements made in Buffalo and for the day's trip to Niagara Falls there is left
nothing to do for the party but take it easy and have a good time from beginning
to end. It is the cheapest, most delightful trip that can be offered and will be first
class In every respect.
The excursion being limited it will be a congenial party of ladies and gentlemen
and you will be sure to make most delightful acquaintances and ha^ a good time
in a social way you could not expect to have going alone to say nothing of making all
your own ararngements at much greater expense than is asked for a membership
ticket on this trip.
If you would like to enjoy the Journal's party and will send your name and ad
dress it will be a pleasure to send you a descriptive folder giving all details and
answering all possible questions and also some Pan American literature which you
will find interesting.
The Journal's Pan-American Excursion offers the pleasantest and most delight
ful trip of the season and a restful invigorating vacation outing as well besides a
great opportunity to visit Buffalo's great show in the most convenient and agreeable

The tables were set in the lecture room,
very tastefully decorated with red tulips
and red candles on silver candelabra, and
a splendid dinner was served by the young
ladies of the congregation.
I'se Exposition Bulltliiin.
It is understood that the Commercial
Club has pledged to the church committee
the use of the Exposition building, where
the conventions will be held.
While the Portland avenue church is
not a very large organization in point of
membership, it is emphatically what is
known as a working church. Members of
the organization have taken up this enter
prise determined to make it a success and
to satisfy their church membership
throughout the country that no mistake
has been made in locating this convention
at Minneapolis. In thi.s effort they appeal
to the civic pride of the citizens of Min
neapolis for their co-operation.
Following the dinner, brief impromptu
speeches were made under the direction of
Thomas S. Branham, toastmaster. Dr. Da
vid Owen Thomas spoke of "Our Purposes,"
explaining the alms and objects of these mis
sionary conferences, which include the wom
an's missionary board, the foreign missionsry
board and the home missionary board. S. H.
Hall, chairman of the public affairs commit
tee of the Commercial Club, spoke on the
question, "Is the Church and Commercial
Club a Proper Combination?" Mr. Hall made
a strong plea for '.he inculcation of civic
pride in all citizens so that every one may
take an Interest in everything which makes
for the upbuilding and beautifying of the
city and the promotion of all its interests,
incidentally pledging the support of this or
ganization to every effort to assist the church
in caring for the coming convention.
. John F. Calderwood was asked to tell "How
to Keep Delegates from Sight Seeing." and
indicated quite plainly that delegates would
have a hard time avoiding sight seeing if Mr.
Calderwood had anything to say about it.
The street railway company, always an im
portant factor in the entertainment of pub
lic bodies of this character, is counted upon
for important assistance.
Rev. A. I>. Harmon of St. Paul spoke of
■The Power Behind the Throne," which he
finally concluded was, in this ease, the
J. S. MfLain was asked to speak on "Re
ligious Conventions and the Press." and in
dicated some of the ways in which the com
mittee of arrangements might make the press
of largest service to tbem.
A. T. Ankeny was asked to reply to the
question, "Do We Appreciate Our Friends?'
and outlined somewhat further how much
the committee of arrangements relied upon
the railroads, the newspapers, the twin city
transportation system,, the Commercial Club
and other agencies to help them in carrying
out their plans. Rev. Charles J. Tanner,
paetor of the church, summed up briefly the
A Saccemtful Committee-
If Minneapolis could enlist the services
ol the committee which went to Kansas
City to secure this convention it might
I be more of a convention town than it is.
\ \niong those who assisted, besides the
I gentlemen who have already received
credit for their work, were four young
' ladies, Misses Ardelle Ktdder, Grace Ire
land and Lucy Halbert, of Minneapolis,
and Miss Ethel Birch, of Olivia, Minn.
Thebe young ladies circulated petitions,
\ distributed Minneapolis buttons, secured
! pledges of support, and by their ladylike
I manners in presenting the proposition so
! won the esteem and sympathy of members
' of the convention that they had the ques
tion of location practically settled before
the matter came to a vote In the conven
tion. They displayed remarkable diplo
macy in winning to their side the proper
men, enlisting Just the right people to
speak in behalf of this city, distributed
literature with regard to the town, and
in other proper ways carried on a cam
paign for Minneapolis- which has probably
never been excelled by any delegation rep
resenting this city on a similar errand.
and It is probable that no delegation from
this city labored against greater odds or
overcame greater difficulties, owing to the
fact that the bulk of the membership of
the church is located so remote from this
NORM KING LITTERATEUR
At Least the Noble Captain Haa Be-
gun to Write Letter*.
Captain Norman W. King, the grand
impressarlo of Mayor Ames' Foxy Quill
ers, has sent a signed communication, by
special uniformed messenger, to the
Tribune, the organ of the administration,
answering the recent charges of Myron F.
Johnson, the patrolman who voluntarily
resigned May 1.
Couched in that choice versatility of
language for which the captain is famous,
the communication proceeds to say that
its author Us proud to admit that he stands
well with the crooked fraternity. That,
he says, is his business and the latest ap
proved method, as recognized by all crafty
detectives, of catching a thief. To make
friends with those of the criminal ilk is
the business of the detective, says King
Then in the same breath he points out
the remarkable success of the department
since the first of the year. The inference
is that the new "fly bobs" are veritable
wizards in "getting acquainted."
King says that Johnaon would not know
a thief if he were dressed in "flaring red
coat and monkey'd tail." Johnson is au
thority for the statement that all of the
"big mitt" gang were attireu iv civilian
dress and wrapped in an easy, nonchalent
smile, a peculiar quality of smile, made
possible only by the consciousness of their
perfect Immunity. Moreover, Johnson
says there are not enough red coats in
town, despite the popularity of golf, to
clothe the army of protected crooke along
Washington avenue during the past
Captain King closes with the following:
I shall pay no more attention to the un
supported mouthlnga of a dissatisfied knock
ing ex-policeman, who is sore because res
ignation was accepted and his bluff called by
his honor, Mayor Ames, and Superintendent
of Police Fred W. Ames.

Professor George S. Beane of the North
high school was elected first vice presi

president. The president. Dr. Berkey, of
the university, has been called away on a
business trip, which may detain him 1 all

will carry forward the work, as he has

Several new superintendents were ap
pointed as follows: Club department,
Mrs. H. A. Watson; press, E. S. J.
Bromley: industrial bureau, Mre. F. M.
Kee, and social. Miss E. Abbie Thomas.
The club department will be the
prominent feature of the work during the
summer, and the first step will be to im
prove and enlarge the work at the Pioneer
reading-room on Washington avenue S.

agreed to place a hydrant fountain in

The original aim of the society in start
ing a room of this same nature but on a
scale to fill the larger demand in the
center of town, seems in a very hopeful
way to be met, and the efforts of the club
department will be directed in that line
through the summer so that it may have
things in readiness for Its permanent
opening in the fall.
The society considers Itself in a success
ful condition, from the fact that it has
dues and pledges collectable on the first
of this month to the amount of $125, with
outstanding accounts of only $21. If the
remittances due the society are promptly
met there need be nothing to hinder the
successful opening of the lunchroom at

The New Plan of the Illinois Cen
AN IMPROVEMENT ON OTHERS
It Will Go Into Effect July 1 and
- It Affects the Entire
- . ■■
Chicago, May —A plan to pension vet
eran employe* of the Illinois Central
railroad was perfected yesterday by Presi
dent Fish, Vice President Harahan and
the directors of the company. The plan
is to become effective July 1, and affects
all the employes, numbering about 40,000.
In two Important respects the pension
plan of the Illinois Central differs, from
those of all other roads. All others re
strict the right to pensions to employes
; who have been in continuous service for
not less than thirty years, and the maxi
mum age at which any man may enter
the service is fixed at 35 years. Both of
these provisions have been strongly criti
cized by railway employes and others.
Under the Illinois Central's plans all
officers and employes who have attained
the age of 70 year 3 shall be retired, and
those who have been for ten years in the
service of the company shall be pensioned
when retired. A further reduction in the
minimum-age limit for pensions Is made
by the following rules:
Locomotive engineers and Bremen, conduct
ors, flagmen and brakemen, train baggage
men, yardmasters, switchmen, section fore
men and supervisors who have attained the
age of 65 years may be retired with pensions
if serving ten years or mure.
Officers and employes between 61 and 70
years of age, who have been ten years In
the service of the company, may be pen
sioned and retired.
The basis on which pensions will be
paid is on the average wages earned dur
ing the last ten years of service, as in
other companies, but the Illinois Central
will pay a higher per centage than any
other road is now doing. For each year
of service an allowance of 1 per cent of
the average monthly pay received for the
ten years preceding retirement will be
the pension allowance. Thus, by way of
Illustration, if an employe has been in
the service for forty years, and has re
ceived an average for the last ten years
of $50 a month regular wages, his pension
allowance would be 40 per cent of |50,
or $20 a month.
HARRI.UA.N ON TOP
Good Reuom for Believing He
Controls Union Pacific.
New York, May 4. —The Commercial-
Advertiser says: There is good reason to
believe that E. H. Harrimau will con
tinue in control of the Union Pacific rail
road. The purchases of Union Pacific
shares by outside parties, although very
large, it is asserted, fell considerably
short of a majority, and Mr. Harriman
and Mr. Gould have bo strengthened their
hold on the property within the past few
days that a continuance of the present
program is practically assured.
Friends of Mr. Harriman are confident
to-day in their assertions that Union Pa
cific control still rests with the Harriman
