WINTER PRICE OF FURS
about same: as last year
Ku Appreciable Advance Although
the Catch of Seals 1m Yearly
There will not be any appreciable ad
vance in the price of furs in Minneapolis
this season. This is the concensus of
opinion of the fur dealers. While the sup
ply of seal skins is gradually decreasing
year by year, yet this winter a price,
ranging from $150 to $300 per garment,
will prevail the same as a year ago.
In this connection it should be noted
that dealers are of the belief that the
future of the seal Industry rests in the
hands of the joint high commission of
which the late Lord Herschell of England
and Gen. John W. Foster, of this coun
try, were the leading spirits. Since the
commission met in Quebec, Canada, in
September, 1898, to consider the matter
of pelagic scaling nothing of moment has
been accomplished. It is asserted that
unless the pelagic industry is put an end
to, It will be but a matter of a short time
until the seals are completely destroyed. I
Within the past ten years the catch has |
diminished from 100,000 to 20,000 for this
This winter -will find the sea otter the
most valuable of all furs as there will in
all probability be only 1,600 caught of
which number 1,200 must be brought from
foreign countries. Next in point of value
•will be the skin of the silver fox, follow
ed by the sable fur.
Tho votaries of fashion will adopt the
plain style in furs this year and the long
haired variety will hold the lead. The ef
fect of the recent disturbance in China
will have its effect on the fur market to
the extent that the price of dog skina will
be advanced, but with this exception the
market value of furs will remain practic
ally the same as a year ago.

PREHISTORIC SEWERS IN ST. PAUL.
■ The sandrock undernenth the new jail site,
Third and St. Peter streets, St. Paul, has
been found to be honeycombed with a net
work of abandoned sewers, most of them con
structed by private owners years ago, before
the city had a public sewer system. In some
cases these tunnels are within a few feet of
the cellar excavation, and all of them must
be filled with masonry to insure the safety
of the new building. The extent of the pas
sages is not yet known, but ihe work of
filling may be quite expensive.

Winston Churchill's Latest Book Bids Fair to
Distance the Library Record Made
by "David Harum."
The public library is the crucible In Min
neapolis wherein is tested the merits of
the various literary productions of the day.
Those in charge there can tell without a
moment's hesitation the books that meet
with popular favor in the city.
Just now lovers of novelty in literature
here, according to the statements of the
library officials, are anxiously striving to
obtain the privilege of having temporary
possession of the work entitled "The
Crisis" by the author of "Richard Carvel,"
which has been pronounced a Buccess.
This book promises to be a record
breaker and the library attendents are be
wildered by the constant demands made
upon them for it. The usual rule is to
have five copies of each work for distribu
tion. These are distributed without cost
but when an extraordinary demand or a
"run" as it were is made upon a certain
book then additional copies are purchased
by the management out of a separate fund
and a fee of 5 cents per week is charged
for the use of the book.
He Never Cares to Wander Now
A family which lives on Third avenue
south, between Eighth and Ninth streets,
has hit upon a novel expedient for curbing
the tendency of one of Its younger mem
bers to go on exploring expeditions, un
accompanied and regardless of anything
save his own pleasure.
The youngster is not yet three years old
but on more than one occasion has run
away from home, leaving his mother al
most distracted at his loss. Whipping him
on his return seemed to be of no avail,
and it was not always possible to watch
the child every minute of the time he
JOHN DIDN'T DANCE
How Judge Simpson Got the Laugh
on Judge Steele
WHO HAD LAUGHED FIRST
A Pair of Interesting Incidents at
the White Earth Res
Judge David F. Simpson, his brother Dr.
John D. Simpson, and Judge John H.
Steele and his wife, who have just re
turned to Minneapolis after a vacation
spent at the White Earth Indian reserva
tion as the guest of Indian Agent Simon
Michelet, had a somewhat novel experi
ence during their stay among the abori
As the story runs—and it was related
by one of the party in question—Judge
Simpson failed to impress at least two o
the Indians on the reservation with a just
conception of his legfel acumen.
It appears that while the Minneapolitans
were enjoying themselves on the reserva
tion after a manner that they maintain
the utmost silence about, two Indians ob
tained a quantity of "firewater" and be
This was not only contrary to the peace
and dignity of the commonwealth but ex
ceedingly annoying to Simon Michelet,
agent. He resolved that a court of in
quiry should be held. Dr. Simpson con
sented to act as judge of the extraordi
nary court, Attorney Steele was to prose
cute and Judge Simpson was to defend the
culprits. In a far off corner of the large
wigwam in which the court sat Agent
Michelet constituted himself a court of
The prisoners were brought in under
guard and the proceedings explained to
them. To the utter disgust of Judge
Simpson, his clients after many deep ut
tered "waughs" announced their inten
tion to plead guilty rather than to face
Among those who laughed the loudest at
the judge's chagrin was Judge Steele. But
retribution followed fast. In the evening
Mr. Michele>t arranged a dance for the
entertainment of his guests. Judge Steele
was asked to join in the amusement. He
then confidentially told his host that he
had not danced in ten years. But he was
finally induced to make the attempt under
the tutelage of a Norwegian girl employed
on the reservation. Just as he was lead
ing his partner out on the floor, a big In
dian approached and calmly taking the
young woman's arm, turned to the attor
ney and said, "She my girl, you no dance."
It is recorded as a fact that John Steele
did not dance hat night and it Is a matter
of record also x at Judge Simpson laughed

This method had to be resorted to short
ly after "The Crisis" was placed
en the library shelves in the
latter part of May of this
year. The demand steadily increased until
there are now 37 copies of the work in the
library. Five of these are issued free and
the other thirty-two are known as "C. D.
books," the privilege of reading them be- >.
ing paid for as stated.
Still it was found that the demand out- '
classed the supply and so to-night fifteen i
additional copies of the work will be added j
making a total of fifty-two. But then, as i
one of the attendents "Stated this morning, |
they will only help a little as there are I
twenty applications on file for them, so |
it would seem that this work will finally •
distance "David Harum," in point of popu- j

appearance that many additional copies

indoors was too cruel a punishment.
Consequently his father had a harness
made, and now when the younster goes
out for his airing a heavy horse weight is
attached to a ring, so contrived that he is
powerless to unfasten it. At first the
child was very indignant at such treat
ment, but he is something of a philosopher
in a small way—perhaps a direct descend
ent of one of the old Greek peripatetics
who were also noted for their fondness of
walking about during their meditations —
and now he may be seen almost any after
noon playing contentedly around the yard,
and dragging the weight with him.
SAYS 'TWAS FORGED
Minneapolis Attorney Attacks a
Texas Deed Given in 1844.
BIG TRACT OF OIL LAND AT STAKE
G. M. B. Hawley Banes His Claim on
an Alleged Fraud by Le Grand
Sixty Years Ago.
Depositions are being taken in Minne
apolis in a rather unusual case involving |
title to 4,428 acres of land in the oil dis- i
trict of Texas. If G. M. B. Hawley, the j
Minneapolis attorney who is plaintiff in :
the action, can prove that a deed executed j
neariy sixty years ago is a forgery, his
fortune appears to be made.
The main party at interest in the de
fense is H. L. Wood worth, of Chicago.
Early during the oil excitement in Texas
he purchased the tract in dispute, divided
it into five acre parcels and was selling it
out to * prospecting companies. A few S
| sales had been made when Mr. Hawley
; appeared and put a stop to the proceedings J
by serving notice that title to the land i
was vested in his family. The suit in i
which depositions are now being taken be- ]
fore Commissioner F. B. Chute, in Mm- |
neapolis, is the result. ....'•.
Mr. Hawley contends that a deed of the !
tract ostensibly given by Joel Edwin
Hawley—his grandfather's brother—in
1844, was a forgery and the work of one
Edwin O. Le Grand. This Le Grand, ac
cording to Mr. Hawley, was one of a dar
ing group of land swindlers who made a
practice of forging deeds, selling the prop
erty described and filing the papers In
some other county of Texas.
The lands in question were granted to
Joel Edwin Hawley by the Mexican gov
ernment in 1835. They lie close to Sour
Lake near the famous oil city of Beau
mont and are within six or seven miles
of proven oil lands. Under valuations
which prevailed during the height of the
oil excitement, the tract would be worth
The principal witness examined here was
Joel E. Hawley's widow, who is now near
j ly ninety years of age.
VACATION SCHOOL WORK
Will Be Shown at the Closing Ex-
hibits Next Week.
The vacation schools will be closed next
week and an exhibition of what has been
done will be shown. The exhibition of
the Franklin school will be held Wednes
day afternoon, and the girls will show the
baskets and rugs they have woven, the
paper hats they have made and the aprons
they have hemmed. The boys have been
busy in the manual training room and, in
addition to many other useful articles,
have made the needles which the girls
use in their weaving. The Clay school
exhibition will be held Friday afternoon,
Aug. 23, and only the work of the girls
will be seen, as there has been no manual
training at the Clay. While the classes
have not been large at either school the
children have been delighted with their
work, and the results will be of more than
ordinary interest. Mrs. Mary D. La Rue,
principal of the Pierce school, has taken
Miss Knowlton's place at the Franklin
school playground this last month. The
vacation schools and playgrounds have
been in operation two months and both
will be discontinued next week.

ALL DOUBT DISPELLED
ROOSEVELT IS SURELY COMING
For a Time Some Ambiguity Existed,
Owing to Hln Reported
j From a statement made by Vice Presi
dent Roosevelt in Kansas City yesterday,
it is evident that he has no intention of
canceling his' proposed visit to the twin
cities next month. He declined an invi
tation to make fan address in Kansas City
on Sept. 2 for the reason that he was to
speak at the Minnesota fair on that date.
This, in addition to the report that the
vice president is on the mend physically;
is reassuring to the state fair manage- |
ment and Minneapolis people who arc
making arrangements for his entertain
ment on that date. , _ ;
The Commercial Club committee met
yesterday to begin preparation for the
reception to be given the vice president
here. It is believed. that many prominent
men from various sections of the state
will, take advantage of the club's invita
tion to meet the vice president.
Senator Nelson May Come. .• .
It is being planned to have Senator
! Knute Nelson head the Minneapolis re
ception committee on the occasion of the
visit of Vice President Roosevelt., The
invitation has been extended Senator Nel
son, ' and a reply is expected from him
within a few days. Thomas Lowry, Con
gressman Loren Fletcher, Thomas Shev
! lin, republican national committeeman,
and E. C. Best, president of the Commer
cial Club, will probably compose the re
mainder of the committee. Senator Clapp
j will head- the St. Paul committee, and the
| plan of having Senator Nelson at the head
i of the Minneapolis committee meets with
; much favor)
j Thomas Shevlin, who will entertain
| Vice President Roosevelt during his stay
j here, said to-day that he had heard noth
i ing from Mr. Roosevelt since the latter
| had decided to curtail his western trip,

Rev. G. L. Morrill.
The daily program will be divided thus:
In the morning, from 8:30 to 9:00, devo

DID KENNAN EXAGGERATE ?
No Such Siberian Conditions Ob
served by Samuel Hill.
Samuel Hill, who has Just visited Rus
sia, says in regard to the eviction of the
correspondent, George Kennan:
Mr. Kennan, energetic man and clever
writer as he is, has unquestionably done more
to create prejudice among the American peo
ple against the Russian government and peo
ple than any other man living. From what
I saw of the prison system in Siberia, I am
convinced Mr. Kennan's very thrilling and
interesting naratives about the treatment, of
the exiles were gross exaggerations. I cot
only believe they were exaggerations of the
conditions existing a dozen years ago, when
he wrote his most sensational things, but I
doubt if ever the conditions in Siberia would
warrant such statements.
I have visited Siberian prisons, and found
the sleeping quarters good and the food
wholesome. The Russians are a kindly and
humane people. They are not visiting cruelty
upon men whom they can control without it.

It has been finally decided to hold th«

There is no doubt but that to the thous
