TOO NEAR TO CHRISTMAS
MiKIXLEY FUND GItOVVS SLOWLY
Thousand* of Letters Were Sent Out
but Only $457 Ha» Been
Residents of Minnesota are unaccount
ably backward in contributing to the Me-
Kinley memorial fund. The work of col
lecting funds here is progressing slower
than in any other northern state, and, un
less a change comes the north star com:
monwealth will make but a sorry showing
when the rinal results are tabulated.
As an illustration of the tardiness with
which replies are being received only
$4r>7.30 has been collected by the committee
up to now, despite the fact that circular
letters asking for contributions were sent
all over the state more than a week ago.
Of these letters 7,000 were distributed in
Minneapolis alone, and 5,000 were sent to
St. Paul addresses. The morning mail to
day biought only twelve replies; and the
the number has been discouragingly small
ever since the work began. Other states
are contributing hundreds where Minne
sota is giving dollars, and the executive
committee is at a loss to understand the
Even the members of the state committ
ee have neglected to contribute. It was
thought that the committee alone would
swell the fund by about $1,300, whereas
the total contributions up to date are
only slightly in excess of a third of that
However, there are occasional instances
that have proved most gratifying. One
of these came in the shape of a letter
yesterday afternoon. The epistle was
signed by R. L. Beeman, and was written
in a childish hand on a sheet of scratch
paper. It read as follows: "Wish you
would please excuse so small amount, but
it seemed my duty to do a little some
thing-. lam twelve years of age." The
amount inclosed was ,"> -cents.
Just what measures the executive com
mittee will adopt to overcome this apathy
is not known, but it is altogether proba
ble that something will be done and with
in a few days.
A NEW RIVERSIDE RECORD
Attendance at the Christmas Eier-
etaea Yesterday Wat* I,OJ>O.
Riverside has always made the claim
of being the largest Sunday school north
west of Chicago. The enrollment has
been about 1,200, and the highest attend
ance 902 on rally day in the fall. Yester
day afternoon, without any particular ef
fort on the part of the officers, 1,090 were
present at the Christmas exercises. The
attendance at this school is registered on
a large wall "thermometer," in which
each degree counts ten. Three times in
the last five years the "thermometers"
have given place to larger ones. It was
expected that the one in present use
would suffice for years to come, but the
record yesterday came within about 200
of the top.
The Christmas entertainment for the |
young children will be held at 2:30 o'clock,

older pupils. Miss Elizabeth Gilmore and j

It is reported that James Rooney of this
city and L. P. Johnson of Duluth have
secured an option on an Itasca county
tract of land on which there is an ex
tensive bed of black granite, said to be
the only deposit of the kind known to
exist in the United States. The stone is
said to be eoual to the best Swedish black
granite and the find is valued at from $50,
--000 to $100,000. The rock was discovered
accidentally and the farmer on whose land
it was found agreed to sell for merely a
nominal sum, being in ignorance of the
value of his property.
The bed is located two miles from a
railway station and half a mile from
trackage. The vein varies in thickness
from seven to eight feet. Mr. Rooney is
connected with the James Donohue rental
and insurance firm. He says the work of
quanying the stone will be begun shortly.

Attendance About Twenty-live Per
Week—System a Success.

is proving a great success. Mr. Tursell,
in charge of this department of the school
I have little trouble with the boys and few
of them remain in my charge more than a
week or two. The average attendance is
about twenty-five a week. This is a good
record for a city the size of Minneapolis.
The system works to perfection and truancy
in the city has been greatly reduced. I can
not, of course, give exactly the same work
as the boys would receive in their own
schools, as all grades are represented in this
department. However by dividing the attend

nearly as possible in the same grooves; as
their classes are pursuing. The result is that
a few weeks away from the regular work
makes very litUe difference.
Mr. Tursell thinks that before long he
will have to have an assistant, and that
the system should be strengthened by the
addition of an institution covering a class
of boys that are not bad enough to be
sent to the reform school and yet too bad
to be kept in' the public schools.
GAVE HER ROSES

A pretty incident occurred on the stage

eyes glistened with tears and, at that

R. B.'S BUSY WEEK
Can Hardly Care for Crowds Going
"Home" for Christmas.
TRAFFIC HEAVIEST FOR YEARS
Prosperous Time* mill ."Easy" Money-
Are Said to lie Ka-N|iontii
ble for It.
The outbound holiday traffic on the dif
ferent roads radiating from Minneapolis
for last week was enormous. Railroad
officials report that all records for like
periods within their remembrance have
been broken. Every passenger train leav
ing Minneapolis since last Monday has
been crowded to its utmost capacity, and
many trains have been forced to draw
several more than their usual quota of
cars in order to accommodate the people
who have gone homo for the holidays.
School teachers and students of the state
university and other educational institu
tions of the city have been conspicuous
amid the throng of travelers. As many
more have been drawn from the ranks of
those who live in Minneapolis but who
have other places which they fondly call
''home." In other years a majority of
these people, who may have felt the stress
of hard times, have remained in the city
during the holidays. Unusually prosper
ous times and "easy" money are given as
the chief reasons for the remarkable in
crease in travel at liiis season.
The gateman at the Milwaukee station
where trains leave Minneapolis at all
hours of the day over four roads, said
that the outward travel had been excep
tionally heavy all last week and had
reached its high-water mark Saturday.
He estimated that an average of 1,000
people left town daily during the week.
, The ten trains which leave Minneapolis
daily over the Omaha road have bee*n
crowded to the guards. Every train has
had two or three extra coaches. Repre
sentatives of this line say that the travel
for the week has been at least twice as
large as for any previous week in the his
tory of the road. The bulk of traffic has
been over the western division.
The St. Louis road has carried a daily
average of 300 people out ot the city.

DANZ' FOURTH AND BEST
The fourth concert of the Danz season at
the Metropolitan, given yesterday afternoon,
drew another large audience to the First ave
nue playhouse. At the close it was pro
nounced by music lovers to be the best of the
year. The program included selections ran
ging from the great Tannhauser overture to
the lighter compositions of the French school,
a scholarly melody by Schumann, an aria by
Bach, a Liszt rhapsodic, and three dance
pieces by Edward German. The dances were
composed for Sir Henry Irving's production
of "Henry VIII.," and were beautifully
The orchestra seems to be improving con
stantly, and richly merits the praise given it
by musicians of authority. Minneapolis musi
cians are just coming to realize that in the
Danz organization Minneapolis has one of the
best orchestras in the country; and fortunate
ly the patronage received by it this season
has exceeded all expectations.
Addison Madeira, the basso, was yesterday's
soloist. He sang "Golgotha," by Couchois,
and Wagner's "Song of the Evening Star."
Both selections were liberally applauded.

SANTA LIVES AT HERMAN
Because the Minneapolis postal author
ities mistook the word "Heaven," penned
in a childish hand, for "Herman," and
sent a letter addressed to "Santa Claus,
Heaven," to the Minnesota town, little
Rosaline Herrman, of 2930 Cedar avenue,
will have a merry Christmas, if the citi
zens of Herman can bring it to pass. They
felt mildly flattered that mail addressed
"Heaven" should be sent to their town
and are doing their best to show that the
mistake was a natural one.
Little Rosaline's letter was received, in
due course of time, by Postmaster J. B.
Hodgson of Herman. The envelope was
unsealed, ami that official promptly drew
the childish epistle from its covering and
read it. The letter was a pitiful appeal,
with Its confession that the child had
decided not to "bother mama or papa any
more," and the postmaster decided that
it should be answered.
Consequently he set to work, and circu
lated a subscription list among bis
TO SAW LOGS THIS WINTER
THE SCANL.ON-UIPSON LIMBER CO.
It ArraiiK'eM to Keep Us Mill (jiolng;
-l.ii(s» to Be ltrouu'ht In
During the past summer over fifty mil
lion feet of logs were brought to Min
neapolis saw mills by rail and this plan
will be continued by the Scanlon-Gipson
company this winter. The logs will be
carried by the new extension to within a
short distance of the mill where they will
be dumped into a pond of water artificial
ly heated before being run into the slide.
The only drawback to the scheme is the
doubt as to whether a steady supply of
logs can be secured. It will take an en
tire trainload every day to keep the mill
in operation on a profitable basis.
The extra expense of handling logs in
this way will in a large manner be offset
by the increased output. Logs can be cut
in the timber lands and shipped to Min
neapolis in a day or two by rail. When
sent down the river and its tributaries
from six to nine months elapse between
the cutting and marketing and the cap
ital invested is necessarily tied up while
the lumber is in the hands of the dealers.
Another advance of the winter cutting
lies in the fact that employment will be
offered men who heretofore have been
forced to find other work or leave when
the summer season is over. A better
class of workmen can be secured if con
stant work can be thus practically as
sured. The company will also be able to
use its mills the entire year instead of
but a part of the season.
LAST VINCENT LECTURES
Two Interesting Courses by the Ghi-
i'h.u-.i Man Completed.
Dr. George E. Vincent of Chicago com
pleted his lecture course In Minneapolis
yesterday afternoon. The talented son of
a gifted father has contributed much to
the pleasure and enlightenment of those
who attended the two series, and all were
loth to see them close. Miss Evers, who
arranged the course, is to be thanked and
The final lecture in the "Public Opin
ion" course, Saturday night, was called
"Democracy and Public Opinion." This
lecture, said Dr. Vincent, like the close of
the Sunday school story, was where the
moral came in. In it he made practical
application of the theories previously
discussed. Which are the wiser, the few
or the many?,. This oft repeated query he
sought to answer, and did it by historical
The founders of this nation believed
that wisdom lay in the few, and, though
they were democrats, they feared the peo
ple and devised an elaborate representa-
tive scheme to give the few actual exer
cise of power. The old colonies were so
cially aristocratic, but as the frontier
pushed westward and new social ideas
spread, this aristocracy was overturned.
The frontier triumphed in the election of
Jackson. The electoral system became a
mere means of registering the popular
will, and under the western idea, the con
gressman was a delegate, who needed
constant jogging from his constitutents.
He was not their trusted representative-.
In parts of the east and south the old
idea still clings.
Dr. Vincent concluded that the few men
of ability should be trusted to administer
the details of government, but the great
principles guiding them are and should be
determined by the mass of the people. The
majority make Ideals, and growth comes
from them. These ideals the few carry
out, and as we progress, we select more
intelligent men to perform our public ser
Cabet's "Icaria" and the Icarians, con
cluded the course in social Utopias yester
day afternoon. Etienne Cabet, a French
lawyer and revolutionist, while exiled in
England, worked out his ideal system,
purely communistic, and gave it to the
world in the form of a romance. He
pushed It in a paper called Le Populaire,
and finally contracted for 1,000,000 acres
of land in Texas on the advice of Robert
Owen, another Utopian. The first colo
nists, sixty-nine in number, found the new
E'ddcn inaccessible, and started back dis
couraged. They met Cabet with 450 others
at 'New Orleans. Hearing that the Mor
mons had left Xanvoo, Cabet bought the
tract from them and took his colony
there. They organized under pure comun
ism and prospered. Cabet lost ihis hold,
however, and was deposed. He took his
friends to St. Louis, where they settled in
a suburb. There he died. The Xanvoo
colony failed and took a tract in south
western lowa, where they gradually drift

Pursuing our usual custom, only
much more extensively than here
tofore, we shall to-morrow, the day
before Christmas, in every depart
ment, wield the Discount Axe most
vigorously; and not on Holiday
Goods, bo called, alone.
You can positively get more for your money to-morrow
at the New England than on any other day In the year.
Are you considering a piece of Fine Furniture in mahogany or some
other Fancy Wood; some rich upholstered piece, or even some more ordin
ary article of Furniture?
Are you thinking of a Rug, either Oriental or Domestic; a beautiful
pair of Portieres, a Sofa Pillow or a pair of dainty Lace Curtains?
Has the Christmas spirit entered your soul sufficiently to impel you to
recklessly (?) embellish your Dining Room with a choice complete China
Tea or Dinner Service?
Is there ANY Comfort and Convenience which will make the home more
attractive to the kids and warm up the cockles of the dear wife's heart,
making home more nearly what ifc deserves to be and Christmas, 1901, a day
long to be remembered? Then tomorrow is surely your day.
It is not often that you can serve both your heart and your pocket at
the same time, but you surely can do so to-morrow at the New England.
This is our Christmas present to our customers; our way of showing
our appreciation of the generous patronage of the past year.
Take us at our word and prove our statement that you can buy more for
your money at the New England to-morrow than on any other day of the
Regarding Toys, Dolls and Games, and that great gamut of merchan
dise comprised under the term Fancy Goods, Novelties in China, Glass,
Metal, Wood and Leather—the only inconvenience you will suffer by your
delay in selecting will be the inconvenience of the crowd, but it is a Jolly,
good natured crowd, and it is not so bad after all; and you can get so much
more for your money tomorrow at our popular Holiday Bazaar at the Fifth
Street end of our premises that it will be more than sufficient compensation
for the jostling you will get, and if you are a mind to come real early in
the day you will be saved even this slight inconvenience.
Our store will be open Tuesday morning a half !
hour earlier than usual, viz., 7:30.
