THE MINNEAPOLIS JOURNAL.
HAS A GOOD START
Minnesota Leads in Beet Sugar In-
dustry in Northwest.
A REPORT BY THE GOVERNMENT
Figure* for the Year 1900 by Cha».
F. Saylor of the Department
Charles F. Saylor, special agent of the
department of agriculture, has made a
report upon the beet sugar industry in
the United States. The report includes
the following regarding the factory at St.
Louis Park, and the raising of sugar beets
in Minnesota last year:
The Minnesota Sugar company is opertaing
a factory at St. Louis Park of 400 tons daily
capacity. Minnesota experienced an unpre
cedented drought during the early part of
the summer. At v vjme when the beets
needed rain most for germination and for
starting them on a vigorous growth it was
very dry. In many fields the beets failed to
come up, or did not come up In sufficient
numbers to insure a stand. Reseeding was
resorted to in many cases, and with quite
good results. These second plantings were
necessarily late, but not infrequently they
produced a good supply of beets of good
As a rule, wher the beets did not materaliza
by the middle of June, the farmers plowed
up the ground and put it into something
else. There is this encouragement to be de
rived from the situation in Minnesota, how
ever: The main crops upon which the state
relied for years were a partial failure. This
was especially true of the northern half of the
state. Flax fared considerably better. Com
paring the beet crop with these, much can be
claimed for its success, as the yield was very
much better. In fact, in most of the fields
the sugar beets were good where a stand was
secured in the spring, and the farmers con
tinued to cultivate the crop. During the sea
son the beets were not attacked by any dis
eases or insects.
The Beet Acreage.
During 1900, 3,000 acres were planted
with beets, of which only 1,900 acres were
harvested. These produced an average
of ten tons per acre; 18,500 tons were
worked at an average cost of $4.85 per
ton. The average coefficient of purity was
80. Of sugar, 1,328 tons were produced and
130 tons were left in process at the close
of the campaign.
Elsewhere In Northwest.
Mention of the industry in other parts
of the northwest is made, as follows:
The factory at Mencminee Falls, Wls.,
which has been lying idle since its con
struction in 1897, has been bought up by a
new company. It has a working capacity of
350 tons of beets daily. It will be operated
next year by the Wisconsin Sugar company.
I tis offering $4 per ton for beets and paying
an additional amount on a rising scale, based
on the sugar content, up to $5 for beets show
ing 16 per cent or over. The failure of this
factory to operate in the past has had a de
pressing effect on the industry in Wisconsin.
That state possesses many localities available
for its introduction. This new turn taken by
the factory at Menominee Falls will probably
have much effect In reviving interest in sugar
production in the state.
A sugar company has been organized at
Fargo, N. D. A finance committee is pro
ceeding with the work of raising capital and
securing contracts with the farmers for grow
ing the beets. Indications point to the suc
cess of the enterprise. A company organized
to build a factory at Oakes, N. D., has been
Incorporated under the state laws of New
Jersey, with a capital of $600,000. The con
tract has been let for building a plant with
1,000 tons daily capacity.
At Aberdeen, S. D., there has been much
activity for some time in an attempt to se
cure a sugar factory. 1h» local organiza
tion has several times had under considera
tion propositions from eastern capitalists.
Negotiations have been constantly directed
toward the establishment of a factory. Sev
eral other places will probably mature plans
for entering the field of sugar manufacturing
TRAVELS LIKE A QUEEN
Ulngling Bros." $20,000 Giraffe Well
A giraffe Is the top iiner of the Ring
ling menagerie this season. It Is eighteen
months old and arrived in this country
about a month ago. This species of wild
animal is rated higher than any in the
market, and to own one is the ambition
of all zoological collectors. The giraffe
is prone to throat and lung trouble and
in a variable climate is hard to keep.
This specimen travels like royalty, in a
private car and waited upon by a special
keeper. A small room is fitted up at the
end of her cage in which the man who
looks after her wants makes his sleeping
quarters. The Rlngling Bros, have $20,000
tied up in this one feature' of their me

observers through the roof of its new dom

DR. NELSONJO MOVE
He Is to Reside at the City Hos
Acting on the advice of Mayor Ames, the
new city physician, Dr. Henry Nelson, will
make his residence at the city hospital. The
mayor has had the plan under consideration
for some time, but a definite decision was
not made till to-day. The institution is
growing, and as the space in the new portion
of the structure becomes available, it will
probably all be in use, as the demands are
heavy. It is the mayor's idea that by making
the hospital his headquarters, the institution
can be kept at a high grade of efficiency. Dr.
Nelson's record as coroner was such as to
indicate that his supervision of the hospital
will be all that is hoped for it. He will re
quire but two rooms, which will be easily
spared in one of the soon to be discarded
I houses on the hospital grounds.

HOUGHTON SAID W
The Building Inspector Heads Off
Another Saloon Theater.
PROJECTED ON BRIDGE SQUARE
Mr. Huughtuu'M Refuaal to Immiic a
Permit Wa» All That Stopped
Thanks to the hostility of Building In
spector Houghtan, there will be no imme
diate addition to the number of saloon
theaters in the city. The saloon man do
ing business at First street and Bridge
square recently had plans prepared for a
large rear addition to his establishment
in which he purposed to give variety ex
hibitions after the maner of some other
places of that ilk in the city. He had the
money in hand for the venture and his
plans were made; all he needed was a per
mit from the building inspector before
proceeding to build. This was not forth
coming, however, and will not be.
Mr. Houghton investigated the situation
and promptly gave notice that he would
never give his consent to the erection of a
theater building at that place. He bases
his refusal on the fact that it will be im
possible to erect .a theater building on the
site proposed that will conform to the
building ordinances. He recently took
the same ground against the carrying out
of ambitious slans on the part of J. C.
Sodini for the improvement of his no
torious Columbia theater.
PRICELESS PAPERS GONE
DR. FOLWELL SUFFERS A LOSS
Recent Fire Destroyed Army Docu
ments of Personal Interest and
There will be no history of the Fiftieth
New York engineers from the pen of Dr.
W. W. Folwell of the university. Dr. Fol
well was an officer in this regiment dur
ing the war, and during the years since
•has collected a large amount of informa
tion relative to the personnel and record
of the regiment, intending eventually to
write a history of the organization. The
papers and documents were stored away
in his old army desk in the rear of his
home in Southeast Minneapolis. Fire
damaged his house badly a few weeks ago,
and among the effects totally destroyed
was the beloved desk and its contents,
also the army desk of his brother.
Dr. Folwell ia greatly grieved over the
loss of his army papers, and now an
nounces that it will be impossible for him
to take up the work of chronicling the
history of the regiment. One of the pa
pers that h© prized most highly was an
order of General Sheridan commending
him for valuable services performed in
the line of duty.

The Ladies' Thursday Musicale, the
leading local musical organization, is to

The Hot "Weather Puts a Check on
According to an announce-ment made
by the state board of health the number of
smallpox cases has fallen off during the
past two weeks, there now being only 365
cases, one-third less than two weeks ago.
Polk county reports the largest number
of cases, 67, Duluth follows with 35, Min

National Guards, state of Minnesota, took
its special train for the annual encamp

Despite the early hour at which the
train was scheduled to leave, 7 o'clock,
fully 500 enthusiastic admirers of the
boys in blue were present, and the demon

pulled out must certainly have been moat
gratifying to the members of companies

supervision of Colonel C. MoC. Reeve and
Major Frank Corriston, and may be ex

It was accompanied by Rossiter's First

We are going into camp this year In per

ANTIQUATED LABOR LAWS
A Plan to Bring Them Down to
According to Deputy State Labor Commis
sioner Hammond, there are on the statute
books many laws for the protection of labor,
which through their erratic construction are
practically void, and he will shortly appear
before the statute revision committee to ask
its aid in making tbe necessary revision.
One of the laws he cites is the ten-hour
law passed in 1878 and amended in 1895, mak
ing ten hours a full working day. The law
says that "any stockholder or overseer, em
ployer, clerk or foreman who shall compel
any person er permit any child under 11
years cf age so employed" to labor more
than ten tours a day shall be guilty of a
misdemeanor and subject to fine.
It is held by tae commissioner that this law
cannot be enforced, from the fact that em
