The Kittleson home was in Ridg&waj^
Jowa. The father left that place thirty
years ago to seek fortune among the west
ern mining camps. Later he learned that
his wife had died; and consequently he
never returned to the old town.
Afterwards, while prospecting near In
dian Creek, Alaska, the two Kittlesons
met and became friends. The similarity
of names first attracted them, and con
versation developed the fact that the
younger man was a son of the older. Mrs.
Kittleson had kept her boy's existence a
secret from his father; and until chance
threw them together the father had not
known that he had a son. The two are
now on their way to the old lowa home.

Part of this expenditure, however, went
toward retiring some of the state's bonds.
One block of $115,000, the reform school
loan of 1889, which was wrawing 6 per cent,
was retired. There will be $75,000 more of
funding tax bonds retired Jan. 1.
The bonded debt comprises $1,209,000

$800,000 of state capitol bonds. Nearly all
i these bonds are held by the state itself,

SEEK AN^HOUR DAY
Team Drivers' Union Takes Steps to
The recently organized Team Drivers'
union is agitating for a uniform eight
hour day on all city work, including ward
work. The union sent the city council a
communication last night stating its
wishes. A special committee of one al
derman from each ward will consider the
matter. Every ward in the city with the
exception of the second, third and fourth,
has the eight-hour system in effect in its
local affairs. This does not apply, how
ever, to the street sprinklers. The alder
men say that it is impracticable to in
clude the sprinkling work under an eight
hour system; the length of the working
day there must necessarily vary with the
weather conditions. They add that under
average conditions street sprinklers get
a full measure of leisure and must be pre
pared to work long hours and over time
when the necessity exists; besides they
are paid $15 a month more than the pre
vailing wages lor men and teams.

REED WAS NARROW
Restricted Dissatisfaction With Cur
rency System to the West.
BANKERS SAY IT IS GENERAL
They Especially Desire the Privilege
of Issuing an Emergency
Tom Reed's recent statement that all of
the dissatisfaction with the present cur
rency system comes from the west and
south is regarded by Minneapolis bankers
and business men as too broad. They
maintain that the east is as much inter
ested in reform in currency as other sec
tions of the country.
F. A. Chamberlain of the Security Bank
of Minnesota says:
Money centers In every section of the coun
try are interested in changes in the currency
system. The west during ibree months in the
fall ia forced to make heavy drafts upon tho
supply of money in the east to assist in mov
ing the wheat crop. The south makes the
same demands in moving its cotton crop. In
stances are frequent where money goes to
high rates, sometimes as high as lo and 12 per
cent, in eastern centers, due, of course, to
the comparatively short supply, if the banks
could istue an emergency circulation this
extreme condition could be easily met, and
the west and south in the first place would
not be forced to make such large requests of
the east. Every now and then a temporary
money stringency threatens business in east
ern centers. An c-mergeucy circulation would
remove the danger. This emergency circula
tion should be taxed high enough to force
its retirement as soon as the urgent need
for it is at an cud. It would prove a valu
able -aid to business in every section of the
country. For this reason the east has been
discussing currency reform to a considerable
.Other bankers and men who use large
quantities of money are of the opinion
that Mr. Reed's statement in this particu
lar should be modified.
BURTON HOLMES COMING
Will Soon Give Two New Illustrated
There is no other railroad enterprise in
the world that is attracting so much at
tention at the present time as the great
road Russia has almost completed across
Siberia. The line will be by all odds
the longest continuous railway line in the
world, being about 6,000 miles. Last sum
mer Burton Holmes, the famous travel
lecturer, crossed Siberia on this line from
west to east, and has recently returned
equipped with illustrations and data for
an intensely interesting lecture. People
have read much about this great rail
way, but nothing will impress the princi
pal facts about it so well as the splendid
colored illustrations, by means of the
stereopticon, that will accompany Mr.
Holmes' fine lecture. This railway has
recently played a great part in history,
Rusia having used it to throw some 300,
--000 troops into Manchuria during the
Boxer uprising, and is destined to play
a great part in the history of the future.
Occupying a prominent position in the
public view, also, is the Chinese ques
tion which has been temporarily settled by
promises of reform and the payment of
indemnity to the intervening powers. A
year ago no other city in the world was
so much talked about as Peking. The
story of the siege of the legations, the
awful atrocities of the massacres by the
Boxers, the rescue by the army of the
allies are still fresh in the pubic mem
ory. Mr. Holmes has recently visited
Peking and has returned prepared to give
a most vivid account of the Chinese cap

Siberian Railway," and "The City of

EFFECT OF "OBLITERATION"
Allegred His Mitt Men Tarn Another
H. R. Raven, W. H. Gorman and Frank
Reardon, alleged members of the "oblit
erated" "big mitt" gang, were arrested
last night by Detectives Howard, Smith
and Hicks, charged with grand larceny.
Charles Campbell, who was with the
others at the time the swindle was per
petrated, was also arrested charged with
vagrancy. The victim of the game was
Joseph Lynch, a fireman on the Great
Northern road. Lynch reported to the
police yesterday that he had been fleeced
by the gamblers, and the arrests last
night were the result.
According to Lynch's story, he and
three friends came to Minneapolis, Thurs
day. On Washington avenue they met
four strangers, who engaged them in con
versation, and offered to show them a
"good time." They were about town to
gether for some time, and then it was
suggested that they repair to a room, and
the crowd went to 39 Washington avenue
S. A few of the party played cinch for
some time and then poker was suggested.
In the game Lynch says he bet all his
money—s27—on a single hand. There was
an attempt on the part of Reardon, he
says, to "stack" the cards, but he and
his friends noticed it and stopped him.
Reardon then, so Lynch says, grabbed the
money from the table and fled. Lynch
and the officers watched for the men and
the victim pointed them out as they were
about to return to the same room last

THE NEW STORE'S CHRISTMAS
Thousands of Poor Children Will Have Their Hearts Glad
dened—Distribution at the Armory.
Great preparations are being made at
the New Store for the annual distribution
of Christmas presents to the poor children
of Minneapolis. For the last four years,
the enterprising firm of Evans, Munzer,
Pickering & Co., has turned Santa Claxis
on a colossal scale and has gladdened the
hearts of thousands of bright boys and
girls whose parents are in such straight
ened circumstances as to be unable tit>
give them a Merry Christmas. The in
discriminate distribution of Christmas
presents from the stock left unpurchased
by an affluent public has become a regular
annual feature of the New Store's observ
ance of Christmas day. The popularity
of the distribution has increased to such
an extent with each year since the initial
©vent, that the management has been
forced to seek larger quarters for the af
fair this year than are available in the
It has been the custom in other years
to devote the entire second floor to the
giving away of presents. Last year's ex
perience showed that the second floor
space was Inadequate for the intelligent
handling of the thousands of little ones
each of whom had to be remembered.
To facilitate just apportionment of
presents this year, the store has secured
the use of the big armory on Eighth street
near First avenue S, which will accom
modate thousands of children at the Bame
time, and give cadi of them plenty of
elbow room. Major Frank T. Corriston
has agreed to press one company of mili
tia into service during the distribution in
the morning to prevent rough jostling by
over-grown boys, to keep the children In
line and to assist in the distribution.
It is a big undertaking to help out all
the children whom Santa Claus may for
get in this great city. Evem with a spe-
PLAN NOT DOWNED
Alderman Leighton Offers Another
Municipal Lighting Resolution.
CALLING FOR $825,000 IN BONDS
Council Declares in Favor of 970,000'
In Bonds' for Purchase of
Those of the fifteen city fathers who
voted against the municipal electric light
ing proposition and who have since seen
the matter in a new light, are to have a
chance to set themselves right with their
constituents. At last night's meeting of
the council Alderman Leighton introduced
again his resolution to submit to a vote
of the people at the next election the
proposition to issue bonds for a lighting
plant. The resolution differs from the
other only in the amount of the bonds,
which is $325,000, instead of $300,000. This
change was made in deference to the ex
pressed doubt of some of the aldermen
that a plant of sufficient capacity to light
the city could be built for $300,000.
It is said that many of the aldermen
have been getting evidences of sentiment
among their constituents quite contrary to
their own as expressed in the former vote
on the lighting proposition, and the asser
tion is made that there is now a fair
chance to get the resolution through the
next time it comes up.
The almost unanimous stand of or
ganized labor on the proposition is also
expected to cause some of the opposition
to take a different view of the matter from
that expressed by the vote.
The resolution was referred to a special
committee of one alderman from each
ward with Alderman Leighton as chair
man, as follows: Ryan, Chatfleld, Merrill,
Holmes, Rand, Main, Powers, Larson,
Dwyer, Peterson, Castle, Schoonmaker.
The Vote on Park Bonds.
The council ratified the action of the
committee recommending the issue of
$70,000 in bonds for park acquisition pur
poses. The vote was 18 to 8. The nega
tive votes were: Foell, Lane, Leighton,
Nels J. Nelson, Main, McLaskey, McCoy,
Spur Track Allowed.
The ordinance granting the Northern
Pacific Railway company the right to
operate a spur track across Twentieth
avenue N during the winter months for
the purpose of getting logs to the Diamond
mill was adopted.
David Jamison, for several years a fore
man in the city engineer's department,
was recently summarily discharged by the
city engineer for striking another fore
man. Last night he presented a com
munication to the council praying for a
chance to be heard by the paving commit- I
tee. He says he was discharged without
cause. He will be given a hearing.
THE RUMMAGE SALE
Dr. Hallock'g Position Is Attracting;
In an issue of the Chicago Advance,
this month, remarks made by Dr. L.
H. Hallock of Plymouth Congregational
church in this city, as prelude to a Sun
day evening sermon, were given in full.
Dr. Hallock strongly denounced this way
of increasing the church funds. The col
umns of the Advance are now taken up
with attacks on Dr. Hallock's position.
Among the contributors are two women
and Rev. J. E. Smith of the Minneapolis
Fifth Avenue Congregational church. Mr.
Smith comes back at the doctor pretty
hard. He says, in part:
In Dr. Hallock's mild protest against rum
mage sales there is a tone that grate disagree
ably upon the independent church member's
ear "When the poor and struggling churches
resorted to fairs and fifties and donation par
ties to eke out their hungry treasuries, we
were silent though sadly tolerant, out of
regard to the straits of our impoverished
brethren." This tone of high-mightiness, the
autocratic "we" and the pope-o-cratie "sadly
tolerant" smacks' of a temper not exactly
happy In Congregational harness. But why
single out "The poor churches," "Plymouth
Wednesday-noon lunches" was not a charity
as everyone knows. i
But the chief thorn in Dr. Hallock's flesh
Is the rummage sale. He fails, however, in
his definition. He has been fighting a thing
of a disturbed imagination.
He fights a windmill of his own construc
tion. We speak that we do know, and testify
of that which we have seen. The ladles of
the churches have been brought to see for
themselves the needs of their sisters less
favored. Hearts have been touched, a sym-
I pathy established, an avenue of helpfulness
opened that would never have come about had
the ladies of the church stood aloof in cold
dignity. . '

ciations generally, who have been greatly
interested In this labor of love, have sent
representatives to assist the management
at the biggest Christmas exercises in the
city. It is expected that a similar volun
teer corps will <be on hand when the dis
tribution commences at the armory
Christmas morning. Ministers who feel
a particular personal interest in the oc
casion are requested by Mr. Evans to call
at the store between now and 'Christmas
and make any arrangements for assist
ance which may seem desirable to them.
The" presents will consist of thousands
of toys suited to the wants of all the boys
who will seek recognition, dolls for all the
little mothers who have no new comfort
about which to wrap their affections now,
all kinds of wearing apparel, cloaks, un
derwear, hosiery, coats, scarfs, hats, and
enough candy to supply every recipient
of the Btore'a generosity for a week to
The doors to the armory will be opened
for the event at 10 a. m. Christmas
morning, and the distribution will com
menoe at 11 a. m.
It will be a sight well worth witnessing
and should not be missed by any one in
terested in child study. It will be an
eye-opener to well-to-do, easy-going peo
ple who have supposed that all Minneapo
lis was as pleasantly situated in life. It
will be Interesting to see how many
bright, beautiful children there are in this
prosperous city who ordinarily must be
content with the barest necessitiea of life.
The large galleries at the armory will af
ford excellent view points and will enable
spectators to look on without mingling in
the juvenile crush.
