IT'S ST. ANTHONY FALLS
NAME FOR THE EAST SIDE P. O.
The Old Settlers Carry the Day in
Favor of the Ancient
"St. Anthony Falls" won out In the!
name contests for the post office station!
on the East Side now designated as Sta- j
tion A. Postmaster Lovejoy submitted the
selection of a name to the residents of the
university side of the river, and the bal
lots of the old settlers carried the day
for the name which that part of the city
bore before its union with Minneapolis.
Three hundred votes were cast with 188
necessary for a choice. "St. Anthony
Falls recsived 227 votes, "East Side" 17,
"East Minneapolis" 98, "Station A" 24,
The next step will be a recommenda
tion to the Unit»l StaUs Postoffice de
partment for a change of name. Post
master Lovejoy in his letter to the au
thorities will give two reasons for a
change: First, the preservation of the
name which was given the falls by Father
Hennepin in 1680; second, a more definite
designation for the locality by giving it
a name instead of continuing the use of
the letter A.

State University Will Record Stu-
dents' Names To-morrow.
FIRST CLASSES NEXT TUESDAY
All Indications Point to the Biggest
Year In the History of
The state university will open to-mor
rom morning for the registration of stu
dents. A few early arrivals called at the
office of Registrar Johnson this morning
and were matriculated. The regular
work, however, will not commence until
to-morrow. The first classes will meet
one week later.
The change from the three-term sys
tem to the semester will make the regis
tration of upper classmen somewhat diffi
cult. Sophomores, in particular, will have
trouble in arranging their courses, but if
the students are in early their regular
school work will not be delayed. The
freshmen will be registered according to
the new arrangement, and with no more
difficulty than under the old plan.
Pew of the faculty were at the university
to-day. The meeting of the committee
will take most of them to their offices to
morrow morning, and they will be there
the remainder of the week for consulta
tion with students.
Indications are favorable for one of the
biggest years in the history of the uni
versity. Never have the calls for cata
logues been so many as during the past
summer and it is believed that the attend
ance will bo larger than last year's.
President Northruj? and several mem
bers of the faculty were about the uni
versity this morning; however, the special
faculty committees do not meet until next
Tuesday afternoon. From that time on
they will be in session every afternoon
during the week. All students having re
quests to make or complaints to register
will be beard.

Old students will find the cost of living
somewhat higher this fall. The prices of

USE THE SAME EXHIBIT
FOR THB SOUTH CAROLINA EXPO.
Minnesota* Exhibit Could Be Dis
played There to Good Effect
Says James UacMnllan.
James MacMullan, in charge of the
Minnesota exhibit at the Pan-American
exposition, Is anxious to see this state
represented at the South Carolina and
West Indies exposition, to be opened at
Charleston, Dec. 1. Mr. MacMullan says
the entire exhibit now at Buffalo could be
shipped south and set up on the Charles
ton grounds at a cost of about $10,000,
and he thinks the Investment would more
than pay for itself as advertising.
Minnesota has made an excellent show
ing at Buffalo, and although the entire
appropriation of $30,000 voted by the
legislature for exposition purposes will
be exhausted before the Buffalo show
closes, an attempt will be made to raise
the required $10,000 among patriotic resi
dents of the state to take the exhibit to
Charleston. Mr. MacMullan says the
southern show will be a "hummer," and
is enthusiastically in favor of having the
Minnesota exhibit sent there.
HERBERT COLLUM STABBED
He and His Friend Carlson Had a
Fight "With Unknown Ruffians.
Herbert Collum, nineteen years of age,
residing at 108 Fourteenth avenue S, was
stabbed by unknown ruffians last night.
Collum and a friend, Henry Carlson, were
on their way home when, at Thirteenth
avenue S and Second street, they were met
by three men, according to Collum's story
to the city hospital attendants. There
was a dispute and a fight followed. In the
melee one of the men drew a knife end
stabbed Collum in the right side, making
an incision one and a half inches long and
five inched deep. The injury is very se
rious. The assailants escaped.

PROFESSOR W. L. MOORE SAYS SO
All Uncle Sam Needs la a Little of
the Proper Kind of Encoar.
Professor Willis L. Moore, chief of the
weather bureau service at Washington,
has large plans for the Minneapolis sta
tion. If his recommendations to Secretary
Wilson, of the agricultural department,
are adopted and the citizens are liberal,
Minneapolis will have an independent
weather station. The instruments will be
removed from surroundings which pre
vent the best service and will be placed in
a building erected solely for the station.
As observers must be on duty until a
late hour and early in the morning Sta
tion Director Outram, the local observer,
will take up his residence in this new
building. If expectations are realized and
citizens offer a proper place, such a site
In Loring park, a building will be erected
which, architecturally, will be a decided
ornament to the city. The observations
and work of the bureau can be done with
more exactness' under such conditions than
when the instruments are on down town
Mr. Moore called at the Minneapolis
office this morning. It is about eleven
years since he was observer here for a
short time. "The service did not amount
to very much in those days," said Mr.
Moore. "From Minneapolis I went to Mil
waukee and Chicago, where I had charge
at the time Chicago was made the point
from which the weather forecast was
issued for this part of the country. I
was in charge there when I was surprised
by receiving my present appointment,
with the title of 'professor,' as head of
the service, some Eix years ago."
Mr. Moore believes that the weather
bureau service comes a» near to the peo
ple as any department of the government,
except the postofnce.
Mr. Moore will attend the Roosevelt
dinner, at the invitation of Thomas Shev
lin, and will leave to-night for Bismarck
and the Yellowstone. Section Director
Branson of North Dakota is in the city
and will be at Bismarck to-morrow when
Mr. Moore inspects the station, which Is
a model of its kind.

FARO THE CAUSE OF HIS UNDOING
Hell Now Sixty Years Old and Af
flicted With a Disease
of the Heart.
Colonel "Jack" Haverly, who is danger
ously Ul at Salt Lake City, and -whose
death, the physicians say, can not long
be deferred, was, in his day, the best
known theatrical manager in America. At
one time Colonel Haverly owned theaters
in New York, Philadelphia and San Fran
cisco, to say nothing of the playhouses
controlled by him all over the country;
but prosperity wae too much for him, and
he lost several fortunes over the gambling
table. Faro was Haverly'« hobby, and he
was probably the best loser this country
has ever known. His money went, not by
bits but by thousands and lie never seemed
to begrudge It.
Charles Frohncan, head of the theatrical
syndicate, was once Haverly's treasurer.
Daniel Frohman and Al Hayman once did
black-face turns in his company. So did
Francis Wilson, Frank MoKee and a host
of others. Wilson is now a comic opera
star and McKee is a prominent manager.
Among the men whom Haverly "put into"
the minstrel business were Charles Reed,
afterwards associated with Willie Collier
in "'Hose and Hoss," and who is now dead;
John Queen, author of "Goo Goo Byes;"
"Billy" Rice, Willis P. Sweatnam, George
Primrose, "Billy" West, Milt G. Barlow,
Lew Dockstader, Sam Devere, Lew Sully,
Charles Shattuck, "Billy" Emerson, Carrol
Johnson, Luke Schoolcraft, "Larry" Doo
ley, "Bob" McGeachy, John McGulre,
George Coes, Frank Cushman, Harry Clap
man, E. M. Kane, "Bob" Slavin, "Ben"
Cotton and others. The list contains
practically every name now prominent in
the domain of minstrelsy. Haverly also
introduced William J. Nankeville to the
public. Nankeville is now the proprietor
of the company which bears the colonel's
name, and which opens an engagement of
one week at the 'Metropolitan theater next
His Work as a Manager,
At one time Col. Haverly managed the
Fifth avenue theater in New York. He
also controlled the old Fourteenth street
theater and Niblo'e Garden. He had sev
eral companies on the road, all bearing
his name, and in addition managed the
tours of the Mapleson Opera company, then
the best known operatic organization
touring the country.
Finally the colonel fell upon evil days.
He was gambling heavily, and even his
immense resources could not stand the
constant drain. One day the news flashed
all over this country that "Jack" Haverly
had gone broke. Afterwards his friends
came to Ms rescue and again put him on
the road at the head of a company, but
the love for play was strong within him,
and although the tour was unusually suc
cessful its profits all went over the gam
bling tables. Then Haverly went west,
and devoted his attention to mining prop
erties In Colorado which he had bought in
his younger days, and which his creditors
had not thought worth the trouble of at
His Mines Pay.
Within the last year or co these mines
have begun to pay, and Haverly seemed
to be on the road to another success when
he was stricken with heart trouble. He is
now in St. Mark's Hospital, Salt Lake
City, with the chances for recovery all
He is about sixty years old, and up to
the time of his present illness had scarce
ly known a sick day in his whole life. His
hair Is still red, as it was in the days
when he used to say: "Gentlemen, be
Heated;" and his face is still unwrinkled
by time. He has thousands of friends all
over the country who will b» sorry to
learn of his illness.

VISITING THE STATE FAIR:
Let me extend you an invitation to visit me. Come if you are well.
I want to learn about farm conditions and will in return entertain you:
Also come if you are sick. 1 believe I can cure equally with the best
specialists. Under the present capitalist system, where often profits
demand first attention, benefit to mankind, second attention, no man
can fully trust any one. Even pay is a matter of cut-throat chance for
all except share-holders of the great trusts. All professions and bus
inesses blow their own horns. I will give you a free examination and
at least tell you if your disease is curable or not. That you may better
decide whom to visit, let me finally only add that I am yours truly,

tions in grain in the speculative markets
has a number of fine points about it, and
although it has been in operation in its
revised form since July 1 there are still
a number of details that are not quite
clear to the trade, especially with regard
to trading in privileges, or what are com
monly known as "puts and calls." As Sat
urday was a holiday in all grain markets
except Minneapolis and Duluth, the di
rectors of the Minneapolis Chamber of
Commerce took advange of the dullness to
get together and to discuss the matter in
formally with a view to finding out how
the law is understood,, by the majority of
the members. It had been supposed that
it was the law's Intent to cover actual
trades in grain only, and such trades In
puts and calls as are made in "bucket
shops" where no actual trade in grain is
contemplated or expected to follow. On
Aug. 9, however. Commissioner Terkes of
the internal revenue bureau at Washing
ton gave it as his opinion that under the
first clause of paragraph 3, section 8, of
the law of March 2, 1901, all trades in
privileges, were taxable wherever made.
It is not believed that this opinion would
be upheld in a test case, because in many
cases it would be imposing a double tax.
Where a trade is made in "calls," for in
stance, it is never possible to determine
whether a sale of grain will follow or not,
that depending upon the course of the
market. Where a sale of grain follows as
the result of a trade in privileges the
trader of course pays the tax on the
transaction, and if he were obliged to pay
a tax on the privilege as well he would be
double-taxed or very obviously discrim
inated against. The directors decided to
call the attention of all members of the
Minneapolis chamber to the matter as it
now stands, as well as to the fact that the
rules of the chamber by their amendment
of Aug. 20, 1900, take cognizance of the
methods of trading in privileges and to a
certain extent define the limits of the
trading, thus. unquestionably placing the
members beyond any remote possibility
of being, classed with bucket shop men by
any fine legal interpretation, should fur
ther legislation against the bucket shops

of president seeking the man.
