STUDY OF AMERICA

He Enjoys a Halloween Party and Says
"The Man Who Understands Not
Fun, Understands Nothing"Pays
His Respects to Archbishop Ireland,
Whom He Praises Most Warmly.
In his lecture last night Rev. Charles
Wagner said he came to America to
learn rather than to teach^ Today he
has given his whole time to learning
something of the graded school system
of Minneapolis. This morning, Mr.
Wagner and Professor Koenig, accom
panied by Mr. and Mrs. George Harri
son, were present at the opening exer
cises of the Douglas school. A little
later a more extended visit was made
to the big Adams school, where special
attention was given to the first primary
rooms and the eighth grade. To the
older pupils Mr. Wagner spoke with en
thusiasm of their splendid attitude
towards their educational opportunities.
The school choir of 600 voices, which
sang patriotic songs, aroused Mr. Wag
ner's enthusiasm to the highest pitch,
and in thanking the children he gave
them some fine patriotic thoughts.
A visit to the university followed,
where calls were maxle on President
Northrop and Dr. Richard Bui ton. At
the East high school Mr. Wagner vis
ited the French, manual training and
drawing departments and spoke to the
students in the assembly rooms.
Pastor Wagner's deep interest in and
sympathy with young people was shown
last night. He was told before his lec
ture that a young people's Halloween
party was going on in the parlors. He
expressed a desire to see it and was es
corted into the room late in the even
ing, while the crowd was being enter
tained with some rolicking topical
songs. In order that he might see
well, the unconventional preacher
climbed on a kitchen table and was a
deeply interested spectator.
He told the young people later that
he was delighted to see the celebration
of "their funny day" and to be in it.
He caught at the nack-o 'lantern idea as
a figure of speech in his talk, calling
pumpkins "your big apples," whose
heavy features have oeen lighted up by
the inner light in the same way that
noy lightens life. He assured his
hearers that "the man who understands
not fun, understands nothing."
Yesterday afternoon Pastor Wagner
and Professor Koenig paid their re
spects to Archbishop Ireland, who com
manded their deep admiration. In the
discussion of French affairs the ap
proval by the archbishop of loyalty to
country gave much pleasure to his vis
itors, who told him with fervor that
they wished they could see him fill the
archiepiscopal throne of Paris.
This afternoon Pastor Wagner and
Professor Koenig were the guests of Mr.
and Mrs. D. Simons. They leave this
evening for Chicago.

Its Experience with Home Rule Char
Duluth is one of the cities Which has

factory, as may be seen from the fol
lowing expression from Mayor Hugo of
Duluth. Mr. Hugo says:
I have nothing but good -vfords for the
Duluth city charter, and as it came into
effect with my first election to the may
or's chair and as I had experience with
it at its worst state of misunderstanding
it would be natural to suppose that I
would have some fault to find with it
but 4ll the apparent difficulties passed
away and in "my opinion we have the only
kind of a charter a city can afford to
have. From overdrawn funds of for
mer charters we have funds with a sur
plus from outstanding orders We are on
a cash basis, there is nothing I would
want to change in our present charter
except it might be to give the council
authority when, by unanimous vote, they
decided that a street improvement was
necessary, that it could be ordered with
a petition from the property owners.
Outside of that (and many good citizens
do not agree with that view of the case),
I think it exactly fits the case and is a
splendid safeguard against extravagance,
poor business methods and shifty devices,
besides bein (at least it acts that way)
an incentive for the heads of departments
to make the best showing with the funds
at their disposal, and with us it was a
continual strife to see what department
would, at the end of the year, have the
greatest surplus in his fund.
I think the people of Minneapolis are
working against their own interests if
they defeat the home rule charter at the

MBS. VAN CLEVE COMMENTS ON
VANDALISM AT FT. SNELLING.
Pioneer Resident of Minnesota Gives In
teresting Reminiscences Concerning
Vine-Covered Tower That Has Been
"Fixed Up" to Look Like a Bail
"It's unbecoming to modernize
ruins," said Mrs. Charlotte Van Cleve,
as she gazed disapprovingly at the pho
tograph of the neatly cemented round
tower at Fort Snelling, taken after its
recent "renovation." "The old place
would look as unnatural fixed up like
that as an old woman like me would,
dressed like the young people of today,
and attempting to appear like them.
"We are too prone to fixing things
up and trying to make them look like
new in America. We have few enough
historic rums and we do not preserve
what we have, at least not in their orig
inal and interesting state. When a
building has become a rum thru circum
stances and is interesting and signifi
cant as it is, why ican't we be content
to let it remain a ruin. There is
something that stirs the heart, the mind
and the memory in ruins."
As Mrs. Van Cleve looked from the
picture of the tower in 1880 to that of
today she said: "Yes that certamlv
is desecration, and the building in its
modern guise cannot be of enough use
to compensate for the loss of historic
interest. In Europe such a thing would
never have been thought of, but unfor
tunately we have not the same regard
for old things.
I suppose there is no else who re
members Fort Snelling as far back as I
do Mrs. Van Cleve went on remini
scently. "You know I was only a few
weeks old when I arrived at Fort Snell
ing with my family in the summer of
1819. I was born at Prairie du Chien
as my father's regiment was on its way
to the mouth of the Minnesota river, to
build a fort there, and that fort was
afterward called Fort Snelling. These
towers and the old quarters are part of
my earliest recolections. From the old
watchtower on its perch between the
rivers, my brothers and I watched the
smoke of the first steamboat to arrive
at 1ho fort, and I remember very well
how excited we and evervone else were.
I think I could go over every part
of the old fort now. Last time I was
down I did go over the old buildings,
into my father's old quarters, and into
the very room where I remember sleep
ing in a cradle. General Morris, who
was commandant, went around with me,
and he said he found out more about
the fort than he had ever known before.
"That was a very interesting visit,
for I took with me a visitor who had
not seen the place in nearly fourscore
years. He was Andrew Tully, my foster
brother, who was rescued from the In
dians a few vears after the fort was es
tablished. His father and mother had
been murdered and Andrew was given
to my father. When we went east,
rriends took him and kept him, and he
had never revisited our early home until
we were both white-haired old people."
Altho Mrs. Van Cleve's lameness,
caused by a recent injury, keeps her
from getting about much, she retains
all of her active interest in life and en
joys greatly recalling her early days in

It requires more than simply workmanship to produce a good fur
garment. The experience required to properly select the skins is a matter
of very slow growth, and unless one's experience has been very wide, it
is well to rely upon a brand of established reputation and in any case this
is the safest way. We have been manufacturing fur garments of every
description for men, women and children for twenty-eight years and our
product is of the best.
COUNTRY JUSTICE AND ITS AD-
AND REVERSED I N THE DIS-
The ruling of a country justice, who
administers the law up near Rogers Sid
ing. Hennepin county, was set aside by
Judge Harrison this morning, and Rich
ard Wiggin was exonerated. The case
is an amusing one from which some sage
deductions might be drawn.
cjonie months ago Wiggins was a guegt
at a country dance. A dispute arose
and taking' the part of injured inno
cence, Wiggins deliberately and with
malice aforethought, slapped one of the
country swains. Aroused, the offended
person caused the arrest of his former
Jonas Weil of this city was called
upon to defend Wiggins. He went to
the countiy, and spent a dav trying the
case before a jury of six men. The
delibeiators were finally discharged,
standing 5 to 1 for acquittal. Believ
ing in country justice the Minneapolis
attorney left his cause to the "justice
of the peace who said: "Well, the de
fendant ought to pay the costs. I wril-
fine him $5 and costs, but if he will pay
the costs I will remit the fine."
This was not to the liking of the. de
fendant or his attorney. An appeal to
the district court was taken, and this
morning on motion of the county attor
ney the case was dismissed.
