SAYS IT WON'T WORK
H. R. Meyer Condemns Gov't Con
trol of Railroads as Impractical
HE CITES GERMAN CONDITIONS
The Question Is One Which He Has
Been Studying the World
H. R. Meyer, who has made the study of
railroads his profession, and who has
been abroad the past few years investi
gating the problem of governmental own
ership, was in Minneapolis yesterday and
to-day as the guest of Samuel Hill, presi
dent of the Minneapolis Trust company.
The result of Mr. Meyer's study may be
| summed up briefly in a single sentence:
"Satisfactory government control of
railroads Is impossible in a democratic
' country." He bases that view largely
upon personal investigations in Germany
According to Mr. Meyer government con
trol in Germany, first obtained in 1879, has
been very unsatisfactory, because it has
been found impossible to keep the man
agement of the railroads out of politics.
Members of the reichstag frequently
•'traded" their votes on matters of in
terest to one section in order to secure
the adoption of certain freight tariffs in
which they were interested. Finally this
evil became so flagrant that the govern
ment decided to make as few changes as
possible, and since 1880 the rate has re
mained practically unchanged, falling only
3 per cent since 1890, while the general
level of prices has fallen 14 per cent.
While this looks fair enough on its face,
Mr. Meyer says it will not work in prac
tice, and calls attention to the wheat sit
uation in Germany to prove his statement.
He said this morning:
German flour muuufacturers import their
wheat from Russia, the 'United States and fa".
Argentine Republic, while eastern Germany,
which produces more wheat than its popula
tion can use, sells its surplus in England. In
IS9O the government reduced the freight rates
on grain, and immediately a great cry arose
in Saxony and Wurteraburg against Prussian
competition. Little attention was paid to \
this at first, but soon a crisis arose, and the
government found Itself compelled to secure
certain Saxony and AVurteinburg votes in the
reichstag. These votes were obtainable ouly
through a restoration of the sld freight rateu,
and the rates were raised again. It was a
trade, pure and simple, but the results were
fiisastrous to the German farmer.
Under private ownership a railroad is bound
to protect its shippers. It must make them a
rate which will enable them to compete suc
cessfully in markets more or less remote.
Under government ownership, with its uni
form rate, manufacturers are confined exclu
sively to territory naturally tributary to
them. Such a plan stifles competition and
can only result in serious detriment to a
In Germany, between 1879 and IS9O, freight
rates declined 12 per cent, and prices 2 per
cent. Between 1890 and 1900 the decline in
rates was about 2 per cent and in prices 14
per cent. In the United States, on the other
hand, freight rates in 1900 are about 57 per
cent of what they were in 1879, while prices,
I think, are about 75 per cent. When I say
"prices" I mean the average price of several
staple commodities, the same products being
used in both computations.
In Australia the situation is even worse.
There they are just passing through a period
of intense etate rivalry such as marked the
close of our civil war' and railroad legislation
is continually hampered by state jealousies.
'DAT CLARK'S TEST
Courts to Pass Upon Legality of
WAS SUSPENDED AND MULCTED
Now He Purposes to Appeal to the
Law to Test Beall'g Au
"Dad" Clark, the man who unt}l July
21 was in the habit of sending balls with
divers curves and twists over the home
plate at Xicollet park for the Minneapolis
baseball team, is now engaged in a legal
warfare with Manager Beall.
The veteran pitcher of many a ten-in
ning game was on the date referred to
suspended and fined many dollars as a
matter of discipline by Mr. Beall.
His term of suspension expired to-day.
During the period of his enforced idle
ness, "Dad" conceived the idea that no
baseball magnate could withhold his sala
ry due him to apply on a fine. He con
sulted Attorney T. A. Garrity and learned
that he had reasoned well. This morning
he sought out Manager Beall and Captain
Wadsworth and intimated that he expect
ed to receive his back salary. The base
ball managers could not see the matter in
the same light as did the attorney and his
client and denied "Dad's" request. A law
suit will be the result and the courts will
be asked to determine the validity of
baseball contracts so far as the collection
of fines are concerned.
DEWEY 11. BREAKS LOOSE
LOOKING FOR JAMBS J. HILL
He Flays Hide and Seek Among;
Moving Cars Till Taken to
the County Jail.
A young mail who insists that he is
Dewey the Second, and that he has an im
portant business engagement with James
J. Hill, was taken to the county jail late
this afternoon and locked up in the in
sane ward. He first attracted attention
in the upper end of the Omaha yards,
where he frightened several train crews
by leaping into moving cabooses, dodging
around engines and otherwise comporting
himself as a man anxious to die suddenly,
might be expected to do.
To all inquirers he returned the answer
that he wanted to see Jim Hill. Finally
I tne patrol wagon was sent for and the
! admirer of Admiral Dewey was inveigled
into it, the officers telling him that they
would take him to Mr. Hill immediately.
In addition to being an admiral in the
United States navy, Mr. Hill's friend also
insisted that he was a good whip, and
demanded to be allowed to occupy the box
seat, beside Driver Olson. The officers
refused to gratify this whim, and when
their prisoner became violent threw him
j to the floor of the wagon and held him
I there until the courthouse was reached.
There he got away from them, and ran
| madly up the marble stairs to the fourth
i floor of the building. Beyond that point
! he could find no outlet, and was promptly
taken in charge again by the officers who
had followed him.
He will come up later in the probate
court for examination as to his sanity. At
present the police know nothing whatever
about him, not even his name.
HOCH DER KAISER CAPS
Northwestern Pullman Employes
Won't Don ;,: Them ' Just ■ . Yet.
Pullman employes running out of Min
neapolis will not be compelled to adopt the
new style of caps prescribed by the com
pany for some time to come. At the local
office of the company this morning in
quiry developed the fact that the old caps
would be used until the supply is ex
hausted, and at present a large number
of the familiar head coverings are on
The men are said to object to the new
caps, which have flaring sides, flat tops
and sharply slanting visors, similar to
the headgear in use in the Austrian army.
In the east the Pennsylvania railroad has
forbidden the use of the caps on its line,
but as the road does not control the Pull
mans it is rather difficult to see how the
order can be enforced.
THE MINNEAPOLIS JOUKNAL.
A KOREAN REUNION
Eleven Persons From That Far
Country Meet Here.
THE ELDER ONES CLASSMATES
They Belong to the Famous McCor
mick Seminary Missionary
Class of 1892. '
A gathering, remarkable in many re
spects, was held to-day at the residence
of Willard S. Ward, pastor of Shiloh
Presbyterian church, 2315 Central avenue.
It was a conference between three mis
sionaries eagerly returning to their work
In Korea, and a fourth from the same field
just beginning a year's leave of absence,
also a reunion of several members of the
class of '92, McCormick Theological semi
nary in Chicago.
Rev. L.-B. Tate and Miss Tate, his sis
ter, representing the Presbyterian church
south, are returning to Chun Ju, in south
ern Korea; Rev. and Mrs. W. L. Swallen
and five children, sent out by the Presby
terian church, North, are on their way
to Pyeng Yang in northern Korea; Rev.
and Mrs. Graham Lee have just arrived
from Pyeng Yang after a foreign resi
dence of eight years. These missionaries
conferred in regard to their work. Mr.
Lee, who Is a co-worker with Mr. Swallen,
brought late news from the mission to
which they are attached.
A Strong: Missionary Class.
Mesßrs. \Vard, Swallen, Tate, Lee and
Rev. J. T. Henderson, of Janesville, Wia.,
who with his wife, was also present, were
members of the class of 1892 at the Mc-
Cormlck Theological seminary at Chi
cago. The old days at' the seminary and
the later experiences of each afforded
plenty of material for a long, interesting
The class of '92, it developed to-day,
was one of unusual note. Twenty-three
out of the forty-six members applied for
work In the foreign field. Not all re
ceived the assignment, but in addition to
those at the gathering to-day, Million
is in Africa, Davies in China. Woods in
Porto Rico, Hyde in India, Walker in
Madrid, Moore in Korea, McCllntock in
Hainan, China. Besides others who are
working in the home mission fields, sev
eral hold important positions in city
churches. One of the class is synodical
missionary of Oklahoma, another presi
dent of Parsons college, Fairfield, Iowa;
the pulpit of the Fort Street church at
Detroit, of the First church at Seattle are
occupied by '92 men.
This gathering, after a separation of
severaJ years, was partly the result of a
plan, while circumstances aided in bring
ing together the remarkable group, which
will disperse this evening, with the prob
ability that they will never meet, again.
Mr. and Mrs. Henderson, who have spent
their vacation at White Bear, will go,
home to-night. Mr. Tate and Miss Tate
will leave for the west this evening; Mr.
Swallen and family will take the Soo line
to-morrow and sail with the Tates from
Vancouver Aug. 19. Mr. Lee will visit
for some time with his parents, Mr. and
Mrs. Mylo Lee, 1672 Hennepin avenue.
The returning missionaries spent eight
years in Korea before beginning the va
cation just ending.
MARIE FOUS WANTED
A Chicago Young Woman Believed
to Be in Minneapolis.
HER MOTHER REPORTED DYING
A Pretty Little Romance That Now
; . . Promises a Mont Unhappy,
The police of Minneapolis have been
asked to look for Mrs. Marie Fous, a wisp
of a girl who has not yet emerged from
her teens. The young wife, after a slight
quarrel with her mother, suddenly dis
appeared from her home in Chicago, and It
is believed came to this city.
There is a very pathetic sequel to the
unhappy misunderstanding in the little
home. The careworn mother of the young
wife is lying on her deathbed and praying
that her child may come back before she
dies. She promises that all will be for
given, and her only hope now is to see
her daughter again and to* see a reconcili
ation between her and her husband. The
heart-broken mother's wish has been giv
en expression in an advertisement for her
A Chicago dispatch says:
Last November Marie Trestik married
Frank Foue, who had boarded with her moth
er for four years and who had watched hia
landlady's pretty daughter grow to woman
hood. When the girl became 19 years of age
he asked gor the girl's hand, and Marie,
whose circle of acquaintances was practically
limited to the neighborhood, accepted him.
Then plans were laid to better the home sur
When the hUßband consented to let his wife
work in a down-town store to aid him In sav

a pleasure-loving set, and, after a time, began
to spend several evenings a week away from
About a month ago she took home a photo
graph, which, she explained, was the picture
of an actor whom a girl friend of hers waa
to marry. A quarrel between mother and
daughter was followed a few days lat^ by
Marie's disappearance. It Is believed she
went to Minneapolis, because her girl friend,
whose first name was Mary, went to Minne
The health of the mother, Mrs. Barbara
Trestik, has given way under the strain at
tending the grief over her daughter's absence.
She lies on her deathbed, her heart alternate
ly torn by hope and despair, and there arc
fears for her reason. She spends hours call-
Ing her daughter's name. Yesterday this no

At the Trestik home last evening, a physi
cian said that the only thing which could save
Mrs. Treetik's life was Marie's return.

buy household gootfs, a reward will probably
be offered if no trace of her Is found through
A PUBLIC LAUNDRY
A Suggestion for the Promotion of
In connection with the proposal to es
tablish all-*the-year baths in Minneapolis,
Mrs. Mary B. James makes a suggestion
based on her settlement work in other
cities. She calls attention to the value
of personal cleanliness as a factor in
public health conditions and believes that
to supplement the efficiency of the public
baths there should be a public laundry
where women would be supplied with
every convenience for cleansing the family
For a time Mrs. James worked in a
neighborhood amid a foreign population
in a city not far from Minneapolis. She
says the water for the locality was carried
in by women and children from wells at
some distance and under the circum
stances it was not surprising that personal
cleanliness was a difficult virtue. She
believes that similar conditions prevail
to a greater or less extent in Minneapolis
and that it can not be made too easy for
residents in the poorer districts of the
city to keep clean.
Mrs. James also comments favorably on
the idea of baths as an adjunct of the pub
lic schools, a plan which has proved suc
cessful in cities where it has been tried
"Isn't that soldier a wonderful piece of

AN OFFER OF PEACE
Seceding Master Plumbers Have a
MEETING OP THE B. T. C. TO-NIGHT
If the Offer la Rejected the Council
Will Have to Do Some
An effort to straighten out the difficul
ties in the plumbing trade will be mad©
at a meeting of the Building Trades Coun
cil this evening. Representatives of the
Master Plumbers' association and of the
Plumbers' union will be present by re
quest, also the two seceding members of
Messrs. Wilkins and Kelly, the seceding
members, who are now working full-hand
ed and have some big contracts, state that
they will submit a proposition to-night
under which they would be willing to go
back into the association.
Their proposition calls for a change in
the rules permitting open competition
amon^ its nerr.bers, just the thing the
association was organized to prevent. It
is expected, therefore, that the association
will not consider the proposition for a
moment, and then It will be up to the
Building Trades Council to find a way out
of the dilemma. There are between 400
and 500 men in the various building trades
working on jobs where Messrs. Kelly and
Wilkins have plumbing contracts. It is
not believed that except as a desperate
resort, the council will order all these
men out. If it does, it in asserted that
there is no assurance that even a majori
ty of the men will obey such an order.
The seceding plumbers therefore feel rea
The plumbers' union has one card left
Recent legislation requires all plumbers
to take out a state license, and a state ex
amining board was created to have super
vision of the matter. Now the men in the
employ ot Messrs. Wilkins and Kelly are
nearly all from outside of the state and
have no Minnesota licenses. There is a
penalty of $25 fine for violation of the
law. The seceders have met this Issue
skilfully, however, by making application
for examination to the state examining
board in the name of all their men and
depositing the examining fee of $3 for each
man. This gives them the right to do
business until the board sets a time for

Baldwin's removal leaves but five hold
over democrats in the weighmaster's de
partment in Minneapolis, as follows: P.
R. Donnell, J. E. Lawler, L. K. Sexton,
P. Jurgens and A. W. Peterson. Jurgens,
it Is said, was appointed as a populist.
Donnell and Lawler are supposed to be
held upon the pay roll by reason of the
backing of M. Doran and D. W. Lawler,
two well known democrats who are cred
ited with having helped the republicans
during the last campaign. Sexton is a
cripple and Peterson is a favorite with
Weighmaster Quist by reason of old ac
quaintance between the weighmaster and
the elder Peterson.
The republican railway and warehouse
commission has been much more thorough
in its work of removing "offensive par
tisans" than was the Lind administration.
When Governor Lind retired there were
eight republican holdovers, and though
the railway commission was slow in be
ginning action, it has now cleaned out
all but five democrats, and in addition
has removed several republicans who
managed to retain their jobs during the

TO KEEP DOWN SMALLPOX
state: boards meet at dilith
Special Provlnton Recommended in
. 7 Lujfclnc Region*—Lumber
- men May Not Consent.
Special to The Journal.
Duluth, Minn., Aug. 13.—An Informal
meeting of the various boards of health
of Minnesota and Wisconsin was held
this morning to discuss smallpox. The
formal meeting is being held this after
noon. The first meeting was slimly at
tended, and the later one much better.
The afternoon meeting convened at 3
o'clock and discussed matters brought
up in the morning.
The boards will probably recommend
that the lumbermen build detention
capms as adjuncts to all large camps;
that the men be not paid off and dis
charged when sick, but be held for a
diagnosis and, if found necessary, that
they be aent to regular hospitals and that
no men be employed at railroad or lum
ber camps or elsewhere in large bodies
unless they can show immunity by the
disease itself or successful vaccination
withn five years.
It is a question. If loggers will accept all
these conditions without a fight, though
most of the large operators have already
established detention hospitals or camps.
The Tower Lumber company to-day noti
fied the state board it would co-operate
with the county in the building and opera
tion of a hospital at Tower. The meeting
did not call out the expected attendance
or interest, though men were present from
Superior and Ashland, Wis., Iron Range
points, Fosston, Cloquet and elsewhere.
Dr. Bracken stated there had been 6,200
cases of smallpox in Minnesota since last
year, of which twenty-nine had been fatal.
"My new book is out," said the author.
But when ills friend asked, "How much?"
his melancholy reply was "Sixty dollars 1"

HOW IRELAND STANDS ABROAD
Even the Red Hat Could Add Noth-

The Philippine islands are considered
'by the inhabitants of Spain at this time
simply as a disagreeable memory. They
refer to them as an incumbrance they
wore glad to get rid of and have no inter

iin the islands under American rule. This
j ia the statement of Rev. J. J. Keane, pas
tor of the Church of the Immaculate Con
; ception, who has returned to Minneapolis
I after a BOjourn of five months in the old
I world. He said:
You would be surprised the little Interest
I displayed by the Spaniards so far as their
former possessions are concerned. They refer
to them as an incumbrance. which for many
years they had been wearied of and were
glad to lose. They make no comment regard
ing church or state rule there as admin

forgotten the existence of the islands and

of any added dignity that could be be

for the archbishop, but until I visited Eu

men. Throughout Spain, Italy and France I
conversed with men of large experience and
factors In the government of nations who
stated that they beheld in the person of
Archbishop Ireland the providential man or
the present time. In the church he is of
course highly honored and respected.
In my audience with the pope—who, by the
way, apparently is endowed with the same
vigor he possessed ten years ago—there were
present Cardinal Rampolla, secretary of state,
and the cardinal prefect of the propaganda.
When I told them I was from the archbish
opric of St. Paul, the pope at once ex
claimed, "Ah, my dear Ireland." This was
not a diplomatic utterance. It came with
the utmost sincerity from the holy father
and his assistants as well.
I therefore cannot conceive, although It is
talked about in Europe, what further dignity,
even that of a cardlnalate, could bring to this
man who retains such a wonderful hold on
the great minds of the old world.

REALTY MOVED WELL
E. G. WALTON'S SECOND AUCTION
A Bis Crowd Attended and Xenrly
All the Bargain* Offered
Edmund O. Walton's second auction of
real estate took place at noon yesterday in
! Century hall. Auctioneer Cyrus Campbell
i sold in all thirty-five pieces. An hour before
the opening a band paraded the streets. At
least 800 persons came and went during the
sale, many being real estate men. Some
tracts were bought by speculators, some by
prospective builders and the remainder by
Few of the advertised bargains were passed
for lack of bids and at times the sale was
extremely spirited. In some cases good
property was raised by $5 bids, while in
other instances $25 a clip was the rate.

Some of the real estate men present called
the auction a lot slaughter, others more con
servative said that many of the sales were
bargains, and still others were not ready to
express an opinion until they had gone over
the published list. Mr. Walton himself was
satisfied, and it Is evident that the pur
chasers were also. They could see from the
displayed plats exactly what they were buy
ing. The success of the second auction in
dicates that much interest is taken in the
new manner of disposing of property. The
sale to-day, being on lots scattered about
the city, was more lively than the Walton
Park sale, where lots lay side by side, tha
price of the first lot setting the price on
Prices to-day ranged from $85 to $635. A
good many pieces went below $100 and very
few higher than $300. Undoubtedly the best
property In the sale was purchased by F.
Crowell. It was 100x180 feet at the foot of
Kenwood Hill. The second best was the
Waverly place property in Concord's subdi
vision, bought by Frank Peterson for $465.
AMES WON'T GO
"Will Stay Home From Jamestown
to Help Striker*.
Mayor Ames is going to deny himself
the pleasure of attending the meeting of
the League of American Municipalities at
Jamestown, N. V., unless the street car
men's strike there is settled. The strik
ing street railway men at Jamestown have
sent out letters to the various cities of
the league asking delegates and public of
ficials not to attend the meeting unless
the strike should be adjusted before hand.
Mayor Ames received one of these letters
and sent back a reply of which the follow
ing la an extract:
"The stand you have taken as expressed
In your letter is one of Justice and right
and I will do all in my power to assist
you. If the strike is not adjusted before
the meeting of the League of American
Municipalities, I will not attend the con
vention. It would have been a great
pleasure for me to attend the meeting
and meet the mayors of the various cities
affiliated with the league, but if my ab
sence will in any way tend to advance the I
interests of union labor, I unhesitatingly
promise to forego the pl»Mure." [

AN ARTFUL DODGER
Captain Spicer of Willmar Proves
HE WANTED NO OLD SHOES IN HIS
His Friends Planned a Charivari for
To-nlght-So He Wai Mar
"How to Dodge Charivari Parties," is
the title of a book shortly to be published
by Captain Mason W. Spicer of Willinar,
Minn., and as the captain writes from his
own experiences the work should prove
interesting. Last night Captain Spicer
wedded Miss Ella Moberg, the ceremony
being performed at Willmar. The story
Spicer is much given to practical Jokes
and naturally, when his engagement was
announced, his many friends who had been
victims of past pleasantries on his part,
determined upon revenge. They got to
gether and decided to do the thing right.
Committees were appointed and elaborate
plans laid for giving the captain and his
bride such a send off as had never be
[ore been known, at least in Willmar.
In some way or other however the cap
tain got wind of their intentions, but he
lay low and said nothing, and in due
time Invitations to the wedding were is
sued, the announcement cards reading
"Monday evening, August 12." Spicer's
friends were jubilant. At last they saw
an opportunity to even up old scores.
Last night, however, the wily captain
accompanied his fiancee to church, and
after the service persuaded the minister
to marry them. They then left on a late
train for this city. Frotn here they will
go east. There was no rice, no old shoes,
and no white ribbons. What is more,
none of Spicer's well-meaning friends was
on hand at the station to wish him god
speed. However, he says he does not re
gret their absence and Mrs. Spicer laugh
ingly agrees with him.
Captain Spicer is an old University of
Minnesota football man and has many
friends in Minneapolis. He won his title
in a volunteer regiment which was sent
south during the Spanish-American war
but which never got outside of United
ARTFUL L RAND
He May Defeat the Paving Bond*
The paving bond question, supposedly
finally settled at Friday night's council
meeting, is up in the air again.
Alderman Rand once assured of getting
the desired pavement for *fals own sec
tion this year, began making plans to de
feat the bond issue. He was voted down
in the ways and means committee, but
came before the council with a minority
report and artfully succeeded in getting
the same on the records. The effect of this
will be to discredit the bonds, and possibly
to stop the sale.
Stoddard & Nye, the purchasers, have
sent the council record to their attorneys
in the east and will do nothing until they
have heard from them. In their opinion
the bonds are yet all right, but they do
not propose to take any chances.
City Attorney Healy ruled Friday night
that the minority of the ways and means
committee had no right to present a re
port; that the council must consider alone
the majority report. Alderman Rand con
ceded, the correctness of the ruling, but
begged his colleagues as an act of cour
tesy to vote to place his report on the
records. The trap was artfully baited, and
enough of both sides of the council fell
into it to enable Rand to carry the day.

Washington, Aug. 13.—Special Agent Fan
has reported to Commissioner Jones a com
promise proposition for the settlement of the
government's claim against the Scanlon-Gip
son and Cass Lake Lumber companies for
green timber cut in their camps last winter.
Farr has been in Cass Lake and these camp 3
for a month or more with representatives of
the companies reinspecting the green timber
with a view to arriving at some basis of
settlement satisfactory to the government and
the companies, and has Just concluded his
Commissioner Jones has not gone into the
report to see just what the compromise Is,
but the main proposition appears to be set
tlement for the white pine at the rate of
$11 a thousand feet instead of $12, the pric-e
first demanded by Farr. The proposition for
settlement is subject to approval by the com
missioner. If it is accepted, it will mean a
loss of several thousand dollars to the In
dians, but it is said the price is higher than
could be obtained if the logs were segregated
and sold at public sale.

DEPENDS ON RATES
Indian Scbool Teachers Mar Con-
vene in Minneapolis.
Miss Estelle Reil, general superintend
ent of Indian schools of the United
States, is at the West. Owing to her posi
tion Miss Reil is one of the determining
factors in naming the next convention
city of the association of Indian School
Instructors. She Is very favorably in
clined toward Minneapolis.
"We have about 3,000 instructors," said
she, "in addition to other people inter
ested in the work. Our convention will
bring together at least 3,000 of these peo
ple for several days Tacoma, Seattle and
Portland are after u*e next meeting. Dr.
Jordan extended us an invitation to meet
here next year and I am here to look
over the ground. Minneapolis has every
facility for taking care of and entertaining
a convention. The only question is the
railroad rate. We must have a rate of
one fare plus $2 at least or our attend
ance will not be satisfactory. Our peo
ple are favorably inclined toward Minne
The Commercial Club committee and
Dr. Jordan have taken the matter in
charge and will do everything to bring the
convention here. General Passenger
Agent Calloway of the Soo has also been
interested in the movement.
Miss Reil says the Indian schools of the
west are in excellent condition. She be
lieves that the industrial feature of In
dian education is working wonders among
the youthful reds.
CHANGES IN PROSPECT
Three New Soldiers' Home Officials
May Be Named.
While nothing definite has been, an
nounced, it is suspected that some
changes will be made in the Soldiers'
home staff at to-morrow's annual meet
ing of the board. It is not believed that
the commandant or the chaplain will be
disturbed, the probable changes being In
the offices of adjutant, quartermaster and
surgeon. No special reasons are as
signed for the probability of changing the
adjutant and surgeon, but the opposition
to Quartermaster Fred Straube is based
on the fact that he is a young man with
a good trade and no physical disability to
prevent him from following it. While the
place calls for a good business training,
it is believed that gome civil veteran,
incapaciated for the rougher battle with
the world, could fill it most acceptably.
Straube is a Spanish war soldier, a
Twelfth Minnesota comrade of John
Llnd's, through whose interest the place
at the home was secured. Politics Is
said to cut no figure in his probable re
moval, however, the change being pro
posed wholly to give, a chance to torn*
