ABMOBY BOARD DENIES REPORT
THAT DESIGNS FOR THE NEW
BUILDING HAVE BEEN AC-
CEPTED. The armory board met this morning
at the office of City Treasurer C. S.
Hulbert to discuss plans for the pro
posed armory on Kenwood boulevard.
There appears to be something ot a
hitch. Arrangements have been made
with E. W. Langdon, captain of Com
pany I, to furnish plans and specifica
tions. Captain Langdon, it is under
stood, has already prepared a design
and submitted it to the armory board.
Nevertheless, the members of the board
declare that designs and plans have
not been adopted.
It is possible that the protests of the
local architects against the coarse of
the board in excluding them from com
petition may have had its effect.

Generally fair,'' declared the
weather observer today, after serving
up to the public one of the longest and
steadiest downpours of the year. Rain
fell Minneapolis and vicinity for
over forty-eight hours without cessa
tion and tallied up 1.30 inches, a re
markable fall. In St. Paul the recorder
showed 1.44 inches, Duluth 1.14, and
La Crosse, Wis., .58.
Last night the wind came from the
north and tore sprockets out of its
wheels to get here with its icy blasts.
At inJdnight the temperature was only
a little above freezing and there was a
ui-ry of snow. This intimation of win
ter has caused a looking into the
statistics of previous winters. If judg
ment can be made by the records of
past winters, cold weather sets in dur
ing the second ten days of November.
Since 1890, during the first ten days
of November, the minimum temperature
has rarely been below 20, the lowest be
ing in 1892, when the mercury fell to 9.
In the second ten days for the fourteen
years, the minimum was below 20 de

PREDICTION THAT DECEMBER
WHEAT WILL REACH $1.40.
Millers Are Conservative, Saying Wheat
Is Now High EnoughC. G. Spencer,
Chicago Grain Man, Says All Trad
ing Eyes Are Turned to Argentine at
Present. Bull talk is going around again at
the Minneapolis Chamber of Commerce,
and there is a renewal of the former big
buying of wheat that, earlier in the sea
son, carried September wheat to $1.23,
una No. 1 northern to $1.27. Today De
cember, the active option, ranged from
$1.17% to $1.19% in an active market,
and No. 1 northern sold at $1.21. Mill
ers are the conservatives. Wheat, they
say, is high enough and there is noth
ing to warrant farther advance. But
many in the trade express themselves
otherwise and say that December
wheat will yet sell in Minneapolis kt
$1.40. Between these two elements lies
tne preponderance of sentiment, con
servatively bullish and looking for a.
fair advance, but questioning the merit
oi the $1.40 prediction.
Wheat has poured into Minneapolis,
and for a month receipts every day
have been two to three times as great
as a year ago. For all this there has
been no accumulation of good wheat.
Soon, the bulls say, the country will
be well cleaned up and receipts will
drop. Wheat has been shipped in here
from every point, and there is talk of
importing Manitoba wheat, yet prices
do not declinehence, say the bulls,
prices must some day go up with a

is leading the trade and is a bull.
Wheat, he says, will eventually sell
"Every man in the trade," said Mr.
Spencer, "has his eye on Argentine.
That country will do the business for
the speculator this year. If it has a
fair production it may equalize mat
ters somewhat, but, if anything should
happen to the Argentine crop the effect
would be something sensational beyond
anything ever seen. There is a scarcity
of' wheat in the world, but the world
has the Argentine crop to look to, hence
Europe is not alarmed. The first sign
of any serious impairment of Argen

ARE THEY SEPARATE?
Order of Railway Telegraphers and Its
Mutual Benefit Department.
Judge W. R. Cray is to decide
whether Mrs. J. J. Vosberg is to have
the proceeds of a $1,000 policy in which
she was named as beneficiary. As Leah
Vosberg she appeared as plaintiff in a
case against the Order of 'Railway

ceased, took out the policy and the
beneficiary is his aunt.
The defense is that the insurance was
secured from the mutual benefit depart

point involved is whether the depart

Special to 'The Journal.
Chicago, Oct. 20.Efforts to bring
about a game between Michigan and
Minnesota for Thanksgiving Day have
been resumed here and at St. Louis
with renewed vigor. It is understood
that actual negotiations were in prog
ress a few days ago, but, according to
a statement in a local morning newspa

Michigan alumni at St. Louis are try
ing to bring Michigan and Minnesota
together at the world's fair stadium
Thanksgiving Day. The Eecord-Herald
today says: There is still hope among
the Chicago followers of Michigan's for
tunes that a game with Minnesota may
be arranged, but neither team has thus
far deigned to open up negotiations for
the game. That Michigan will secure
some game which will bring to the wol
verines a financial profit there is no
As a last resort, it is said, Manager
Baird of Ann Arbor has his eye upon
a game with Amherst to be played in
New York or Boston on Thanksgiving
Day. The eastern engagement will not
be taken unless efforts to secure Min
nesota or another big western team for
a late season game fail.
Thi3 Btory first followed the an
nouncement that Columbia had declined
to meet Michigan Thanksgiving Day. In
quiry at the university called forth a
denial that Minnesota would play
Michigan this year, as an Iowa contract
called for gopher attention on Thanks
giving Day. Since that time Iowa has
asked that the game be transferred
from Davenport to Iowa City, and Min
nesota has demurred. While there is
no friction over the matter, the Chicago
string fiends have evidently utilized it
as a basis upon which to revive "con
jectures of the infinite possibility."

Testimony to the long existing de

B. Henderson's ability to finish the

Altho the line increased in length
until it extended up Seventh street and

signs of diminution, the two box office
men satisfied the seat seekers, as tar as
possible. The 2,000 seats at their com
mand for each performance were drawn
on liberally and they sold many tickets

COUNCIL OF STUDENTS
OBJECT IS TO CONCENTRATE UN-

Following the lead of several east

The plan is foi a council or board, in
which the three upper classes will have
representatives, three from the senior
class, two from the junior and one from
the sophomore class.
In the different colleges where such
councils exist it has been found that
their action in condemning cribbing and
in encouraging the best kind of college
enterprises has resulted in a better spir

feeling between faculty and students, so
the approval by the faculty of the
