SAYS WEST SWAYS
Newell Dwight Hillis Declares Fu
ture Great Americans Are
in the West.
New York, Oct. 24.In a sermon on
the work of missionaries in this coun
try in the last hundred years, Rev. Dr.
Newell Dwight ilillis, in Plymouth
i-huveh, Brooklyn, has declared that the
men or the west are the true molders
of the nation's destiny. He said:
So accustomed are we to thinking that
Athens made Greece, that Rome made
Italy, that tarls made France, that Eng
land la London, that we believed now as
New York goes so goes the destiny of
the United States. But I say that as New
York goes so does not go the destiny and
history of the United States, I do not mean
that New York has no influence, but we
in our self-sufficiency have come to over
The boy who is nourished In the city,
who all his life has breathed only the
tainted air of the city and has been
cramped by his surroundings, has no
chance. It is the boy who has been
reared far from the complexity of city
life that does things. Here a man loses
his individuality. The men who will
make themselves known forty years
hence are now husking corn in Nebraska.
Tho roal preachers, Dr. Hillis went
on, are those whose work is done in
the west, and he contrasted their field
with his own, saying:
I am a man who spends his time mix
ing tonics to try to get up an appetite in
you who are gorged to the point of glut
There is no pessimism beyond the
mountains, no talking down of the in

have now begun a revival of patriot

make you happy. Organize the resources

ST. PAUL MISSED
Minnesota's Capital City Failed
to Hear One of Party's
By W. W. Jermans.
Chicago, Oct. 24.St. Paul didn't do
itself very proud when it turned out a
handful of people to hear Congressman
F. W. Cushman of Washington last
Thursday night. Mr. Cushman is one
of the strongest and most original talk
ers in the party, and in many respects
he is like our own J. Adam Bede. When
ever ho is advertised to make a speech
in congress the galleries are filled to
overflowing long before the time set.
Mr. Cushman was on his way east to
take an active part in the campaign in
Ohio and Indiana, and it was arranged
thru the national committee to have
him make an address in St. Paul. The
meeting was advertised, and held in a
small hall seating not more than 400,
and it was not full. All local arrange
ments were made by the state commit
tee, acting with the Eamsey county
Mr. Cushman last Saturday night ad
dressed 6,000 persons in the largest au
ditorium in Cleveland, and he is to
have meetings of that type in Toledo,
Columbus, Cincinnati, Indianapolis and
other points in Ohio and Indiana.
Mr. Tawney says that experiences
such as Mr. Cushman had in St. Paul
have been had by many of the best
speakers in the party this year. He
thinks it is due to the feeling which
he says is mistakenly called apathy.
"it isn't apathy," he savs,'"but
definite conviction. The people have
made up their minds how they will vote,
and they don't care for oratory. To
illustrate: We made arrangements dur
ing September to send half a dozen
high grade speakers into Idaho. Word
came from the state committee there
telling us there was no need for it.
They told us to send our speakers to
states where they were needed Idaho
was all right without them. 'Save
your money,' the letter concluded,

HUGH SCOTT CONFUSED DUCK
PASS WITH SENTRY POST.
After Waiting Weary Hours for Game,
He Heard a Noise and Promptly
Called Out a Challenge That Sent
the Mallards Whistling Toward
Florida. Hugh Scott went hunting last week.
He went because rn an unguarded mo
ment of confident generosity, he prom
ised some half dozen of the men who
are running his campaign for county
auditor a wild duck Sunday dinner at
which the final pre-election coups could
be planned. There was a dinner but
that function is a.sequel to the hunting
Now the county auditor has a certain
modest pride in his ability as a Nim
rod. In fact, his experience afield,
coupled with his training as a military
man, has superinduced the idea in the
county official's mind that seeing and
bagging game are practically equivalent
With this idea he nonchalantly in
vited his guests for Sunday dinner and
Saturday afternoon he started, with a
friend, for the Minnesota bottoms. Se
lecting a likely looking spot among
rushes, the two sportsmen became
"one with waving things" and silently
with shotgun in hand waited for a flight
of unsuspecting waterfowl.
There was nothing doing for over an
hour. I was .iust beginning to grow
dusk. Suddenly there was a stirring of
the wild rice in the marsh overlooked
by the weary watchers. "Halt! Who
goes there?" rang out clear on the
evening air as Lieutenant Scott jumped
to his feet and came to "charge bay
Instead of a halt there was a quack
ing, a flapping and a whirr as a flock
of beautiful mallards sailed into the
open air off down the river. Bang!
Bang! A double-barreled- shotgun was
emptied. The shots reverberated
across the lonely bottom and among the
surrounding hills. The ducks sailed on
unmindful and faded into the twilight.
"Well, I'll be blamed! You idiot,
why didn't you shoot?" indignantly
inquired the auditor of his convulsed
"II thought you could halt the
squad without me, finally gurgled the
companion between laughs. And there
the curtain must be drawn.
It was soon dark and the unsuccessful
Nimrods sought board and lodging in a
neighboring farmhouse. An early
morning effort resulted no better. At
tempts to buy game failed and the
chagrined sportsmen started for Min
neapolis empty-handed. On the way,
however, they found and bought two
Dinner time came. The guests as

as he minced a piece of the carefully

"Why those," interrupted the audi
tor's "companion in crime," "tho se

the county auditor has not heard the
last of his hunting trip.
NEED OF BETTER ROADS
FARMERS FIND I ALMOST IMPOS-
SIBLE TO GET TO CITY FROM
NORTH. "Euts, mud, washouts, and marshes
render traffic almost impossible on the
roads entering North Minneapolis," de
declared A. Peteler, a market gardener
at the central market, this morning. I
don't believe that the tenth ward has
spent five dollars on its roads this year
and the result is that there will be a loss
of trade to the Minneapolitans unless
something can be done."
"The gravel roads that have been
graded to the city limits are fair, but
where they stop there is a slough of
despond which even a Christian has
hard work getting thru. This is espec
ially true of the Penn avenue road, and
the Osseo road, where there are hun
dreds of teams passing every day. There
are holes in the roads big enough to
sink a wheel, and the farmers are at
a loss to know what to do.'
"The roads have been fierce all sum
mer, running thru marshes where every
inch is flat and undrained, but the re
cent heavy rains have finished the job
and they are almost impassable. When
they freeze up in the shape they are
now in, Providence only can help the
Minnesota Wins Grand Sweepstakes for
Butter at World's Fair.
Minnesota has won the grand sweep
stakes for unsalted and print butter, at
the world's fair for the fourth success
ive time and this state thus outranks all
the states of the union in producing fine
butter. This is high honor for butter
makers of the state as they were com
peting with the most skillful dairymen
in New York, Wisconsin and Iowa.
After Minnesota has shown its su
premacy in b'uttermaking the rival
states sought to have the rules covering
the points in which Minnesota excelled,
amended in a way that might give them
advantage. I was also urged that the
system of scoring should be altered and
the plan suggested would have reduced
Minnesota's high average, but the
judges decided that the rules were fair
to all and Minnesota still retains its
rank as the premier butter state of the

Eiot calls were sent in from all of

One would think to see the number of

ber of horses in use must be decreasing,
but it is not, if we can rely ori statistics.
The reason seems simple, when you stop

CARELESS ABOUT MONEY
SOME FOLKS WHO DON'T TRY TO
COLLECT BILLS FEOM CITY.
It is currently supposed that all
claims against the city are promptly col
lected, as the city is very "good pay"
in all its business transactions, but Will
iam B. Jones, assistant city controller,
in going thru a package of old war
rants finds that some people have so lit
tle regard for money that they will not
come for it to the city hall.
Many of the warrants are for trivial
amounts, but others quite worth the
while, and why they have not been
called for would probably disclose some
In a bunch of warrants on the street
opening fund is one drawn in 1877. I
is in favor of J. McLaughlin, and calls
for $5. I is signed by John DeLaittre
as mayor, and Frank J. Mead as city
clerk. I is assumed that Mr. McLaugh
lin was dissatisfied with the award and
and refused to take it.
Should the prosperous Minneapolis &
St. Louis railway company need a few
dollars for an emergency, the officers
are advised that the controller has three
warrants which he will turn over to the
proper authorities. They were drawn
in 1888 and are worth just $1 each.
The amounts represent awards for
land taken in the opening of Lyndale
avenue and Lake street in the eighties.
There are also five warrants for $1 each
favor of the Minneapolis, Lyndale
and Minnetonka railway, the old "mo-
tor line" to Minnetonka. This com
pany was dissolved years ago.
In the bunch of uncalled for warrants
Is one for the sum of $170 drawn in
favor of Anna Mattison in 1890. An
other warrant dated the same year en
titles Thomas J. Morgan to $75, when
ever he calls for it. That these claims
were never collected-is probably due to
the fact that the "parties named could
not prove their title clear to the prop
erty taken, and when the true owner
ship was established the matter was for
gotten in some way.
RAILROADS KEEP FAITH
MILLERS GRATIFIED OVER TH E
ACTION OF TH E EASTERN
TRUNK LINES RELATIVE TO
RATES. Indications that the eastern lines are
keeping faith in the matter of grain
rates, eastbound,are pleasing to the flour
millers of Minneapolis. Announcement
has been made by the trunk lines east
of Buffalo of another advance on grain
rates to the Atlantic seaboard Nov. 1.
It amounts to one-half cent a bushel
on wheat, flax, corn, rye, barley. These
rates will be operative fifteen days only,
for Nov. 16 a further advance of a
half-cent a bushel will be made on
wheat, flax, corn and rye and one-quar
ter cent on barley.
These successive advances, beginning
Sept. 16 with a half-cent, resulted from
the conference of representatives of the
millers' federation last. summer with
the traffic managers, which was attend
ed by C. C. Bovey and Clifford Fair
child of Minneapolis.
Mr. Fairchild of the Pillsbury-Wash
burn company said today that the lat
est advance was very gratifying. The
advances show that the trunk lines are
on the right track and that they pro
pose to stand by their agreement. "And
I want to tell you it will be a help to
the flour trade," he said. "The roads
will get just as much, if not a larger,
volume of traffic in the manufactured
product than in the raw material. The
traffic in the manufactured product is
not spasmodic as it is in the raw ma
terial which moves only, in the fall
while flour moves the year round, and
is as steady as can be."
Unfortunately the millers have gotten
entirely out of the range of the foreign
markets and have done so little export
business lately as to have not yet had
the opportunity to prove to the trunk
lines that figures and arguments ad
vanced, at the New York conference
were correct. However, the export
business will begin soon.
PARK LAWS REVISED
The General Ordinance Redrafted to
Remedy Certain Weak Points.
C. J. Rockwood, attorney for the
park board has redrafted the general
park ordinance so as to cover several
points which have been raised from
time to time concerning the jurisdiction
and authority of the board. The changes
from the ordinance now in force are
largely technical, but the effect of the
proposed ordinance will be to strength
en the board in the enforcement of its
rules and make convictions more
The ordinance will be submitted to
the park board at its next meeting, and
after being approved by that board will
be sent to the city council with the re
quest that it be passed.
It is noted that the ordinance still
retains several of the regulations
against which the public has shown
considerable disfavor. One in partic
ular is the prohibition against carry
ing any kind of flowers in the parks.

SETTLEMENT ON TAXES S
Street Railway Co. Offers Oompromiai'
on Last Year's Account.
The board of county commissioner*
met this morning to consider a proposi
tion of the Minneapolis Street Railway
company for the payment of its 1902
personal taxes, fixed by the state board
of equalization at $123,000. The matter
was taken under advisement.
When these taxes came due last year,
the company refused to pay and filed
tn answer in the district court. The
case has never come to trial. Now th
company is willing to pay the amount
assessed without the 10 per cent penalty
attached, but offers to pay the daily
