Will Double Capacity of the Old
PlantEmploying 100 Men.
Promotion work conducted lr Wal
lace G. Nye, secretary of the public af
fairs committee of the Commercial club,
has secured for Minneapolis an addition
to its long list of manufacturing estab
lishments. The Eddy Sash and Door
company of Wabasha, Minn., has
bought the Nelson & Tuthill planing
mill at Jackson and Twelfth avenues
NE, and the block of land on which it
stands, for $17,000. It has begun the
erection of a brick factory and will op
erate one of the large sash and door
plants of the city.
The capital stock has been increased
to $100,000 and half of that is Minne
apolis money.
At Wabasha the company wa8 operat
ing with about fifty men and making
not more than half the goods it has sold
and it has bought stock from all sources,
to fill orders. In Minneapolis the ca
pacity will be doubled and the mill will
start with over 100 hands.
The company has maintained a large
warehouse in Minneapolis for three
years, at Second avenue and Second
street NE.
The old Nelson-Tuthill "planing mill
plant includes most of block 9 in John
son's Second addition, lying between
Twelfth and Thirteenth avenues and
Jackson street, on the Great Northern
tracks, or about thirteen city lots. The
mill is still in operation, altho the brick
plant cuts off one corner.

TEMPERANCE ORGANIZATION
UNITE IN EFFORT.
TO
Missionary Work Is Started to Redeem
the Great National Holiday from
Unseemly HilarityWill Urge to
Hold "Patriotic Temperance Rallies"
for Unification of Antisaloon Senti
ment. The Patriotic Fourth of July union
has been organized in Minneapolis with
the declared intention of redeeming
the Fourth, from the drunkenness and
debauchery which has come to prevail
so generally in the celebration of the
anniversary of our national birth.''
The union is a combination of the
Minnesota Total Abstinence associa
tion, the Catholic Total Abstinence as
sociation, Junior Independent Order of
Good Templars, Minnesota Woman's
Christian Temperance Union, Independ
ent Order of Good Templars, the state
prohibition committee and the Minne
sota Antisaloon league. The executive
committee of the union is composed of
the leading officers of the combined or
ganizations, Gustav Eide, A. M. Wold,
Emma James, Timothy M. Bohau, MTS.
B. Laythe Scoville, W. G. Calderwood
and N. A. Palmer.
The union is asking the ministers and
leaders of temperance organizations of
all countV seats and other important
towns thruout the state to agitate the
question thru the newspapers, use of the
mails and thru addresses by temperance
workers and ministers. These workers
will endeavor to have the celebrations
in their respective towns take the form
of patriotic temperance rallies.
According to a letter sent thruout the
state by the union, the topics for the
day should "be such as will tend to
unify the sentiment already existing,
and bring the forces opposed to the sa
loon closer together, to stand as one
against the common foe." The sugges
tion is also made that children be en
listed for appropriate recitations and
music, making the occasion as attractive
and helpful as possible."
FRAUD ORDER IS UPHELD
JUDGE LOCHREN DISMISSES BILL
OF HATHORN COMPANY AP
PEAL TO HIGHEST COURT PROM-
ISED.
The A. R. Hathorn Mutual Commis
sion company may not use the United
States mails. Judge William Lochr.en
dismissed the bill of the company ask
ing that the fraud order imposed by the
postoffice department be removed.
Judge Lochren said that the ideals of
the postoffice were high and that it
was the intention of the department to
carry letters between friends, to pro
mote the distribution of literature and
to aid legitimate business. While the
evidence did not show that the com
panv intended to deceive, as the con
tract was explicit, it did show that the
nature of the business was a lottery
and that investors were endeavoring to
obtain something for nothing, hoping
that other investors could not fulfill
their contiacts. The fraud order was
shown to be constitutional by citation's

TWO RACES EQUAL
Japanese Says Yellow People WiU
Share World Rule.
In the opinion of Dr. Tovokichi Iye
naga. the Japanese professor in polit
ical science of the University of Chi
cago, the yellow race is at least equal
with the white race." In his closing
lecture of the Stanley Hall course, at
the First Unitarian church last night,
Dr. lyenaga made this claim. "Fur-
ther,'"' said he, "the future rule of the
world will be equally shared by the
white and yellow races."
The superiority of the white races
over the black and red races he_ stated
had been proved time and again. In
eyery case where either colored race
had come in contact with the white
race, the white had demonstrated its
superiority. The present war between
Japan and Russia, tho, has been the
only contest between the white and the
3'ellow, and the yellow has held its
own.
From this point he went into a com
parison of the civilization of the two
races, asserting that the yellow races
had advanced several stages upward
when the white races were still in sav
agerv. Moreover, he claimed that the
civilization of the yellow race has tend
ed to reconcile humanity with its lot,
wheTeas the civilization of the white
is unrest.

OFFICE BUILDING:

MINNESOTA LOAN AND TRUST
WILL REMODEL STRUCTURE.
Jhanges Will Take Pour Mouths and
$25,000 to CompleteThe Entire
Building Will Be Made More Modern
and ElegantIt Was the First Fire
proof Building Here.
Alterations that will take four
months' time have been planned by the
Minnesota Loan and Trust company for
its home building on Nicollet avenue.
The work will begin within a week and
the improvements are expected to make
this one of the most attractive financial
structures in Minneapolis. The cost will
be $25,000, and the building will be
made entirely modern. William Chan
ning Whitney is the architect. Growth
of its business made the move neces
sary.
The raarrangement will-affect the en
tire building, but particularly the first
and second floors, which are to be oc
cupied almost entirely by the Trust
company. The main entrance will be
moved to the extreme left and two
open-cage, large, modern elevators
put in. The entrance to the Trust com
pany quarters will be at the extreme
right, with broad stairway to the sec
ond floor.
The money-deposit and safety deposit
departments will occupy practically all
the ground floor. The general offices in
cluding the bond, trust and mortgage
departments, will remain on the second
floor.
The center of the ground floor will
be occupied by the cages for the money
deposit department under a cove ceil
ing, illuminated by concealed lights.
The safety vaults will remain as they
are. This floor will be raised about
three feet to the street level and the
main portion of the room will be finished
in Tennessee marble.
The second floor vaults will be moved
to the left side, leaving a broad, un
obstructed space the length of the build
ing and providing room for attractive
offices. The vault capacity will be en
larged greatly.
The building was erected 1884-5
from plans by Hodgson & Son, and was
the first fireproof structure in Minne
apolis.

with Some Material Modifications
New Loop Ordinance,! h'^
Lake street wilt have a roadway fifty
feet wide. This was definitely settled
at the council meeting last evening by
the passage of an ordinance introduced
by Alderman Piatt B. Walker. The curb
and sidewalks will be moved back to
give the required width and a space
will be left between the curbs anrt
walks to accommodate the poles for
electric wires. The park board will re
set the trees, and the street railway
company will bear all the expenses.
Having secured the passage of this
ordinance, Alderman Walker gave no
tice of an ordinance licensing and regu
lating canvassers, solicitors and agents
of like character.
Alderman G. A. Westphal's automo
bile ordinance made its appearance, but
it was not as drastic as many expected.
The author has modified his extreme
views after conferring with the officers
of the automobile club. Its main fea
tures are provisions limiting the rate
of speed within two miles of the busi
ness center to eight miles an hour and
requiring that the license numbers be
permanently and conspicuously placed.
The measure was referred to a special
committee consisting of Aldermen
Westphal, Gerber, Chatfield, Nye,
Starkweather, Hertig, Rand, Vaurhan,
Clark, McCoy, Duryea, Bowe and Van
Nest.
Alderman Perry Starkweather offered
a resolution directing the street railway
company to lay tracks on First avenue
N and Fifth street to Seventh, and on'
Sixth street from Hennepin to First
avenue N. This plan of trackage will
give the street railway company two
additional down-town loops, and will be
of special benefit to the Lake Minne
tonka line. The resolutio'tf was sent to
a special committee consisting of the

and the Minneapolis Retailers' associa

existing bicycle paths were presented.

REVENUE FUND SHORT
Yawning Void Now Pills the State's
Strong Box.
The general revenue fund of the state
today shows a deficit of $19,000. This
deficit seems bound to^increase for
months to come. The last legislature
appropriated $645,000 to be available
before July 31, but failed to make any
provision for creating the sum. The
monthly drafts on the general revenue
fund are about $400,000, and all it can
stand. Thfc indications are that before
many months the state will havejto bor
row considerable money. -'i'f&t^Z

wegian independence day. Personal
messages of greeting will be heard from
President Roosevelt and King Oscar,
and both Swedes and Norwegians will
join in the celebration.
Governor John A. Johnson will be
the orator. This is an unusual .de-
parture, as he is the first man of Swed
ish descent to deliver the"1!
COURTHOUSE BONDS
Bids Will Be Opened on Last Issue
Tuesday.
Bids for the new issue of courthouse
and citv hall bonds, amounting to $250,-
000, will be opened next Tuesday at 4
p.m. at a special meeting of the board
of courthouse and citv hall commission
ers. No hitch is expected anywhere
and in a few weeks at the outside the
board will have sufficient money to
completethe building.
Aside from the main entrance, which
will require an additional $40,000, the
board has taken no final action on plans.
The board of health will get additional
room, also the board of education, but
no definite action has been taken be
yond this.
The commissioners find much oppo
sition to using the rotunda in the inner
court for a G. A. R. hall or a convention
hall. There is, however, a strong senti
ment in favor of roofing over the pres
ent circular wall and fitting it up for
a branch public library, with delivery
station and reading room. I is argued
that there is not a more convenient
point in the city for a branch library
on account of the large number of city
and county employees in the building,
the daily presence of many attorneys
and school teachers, and the location
near so many large office buildings.
KICK ON WATER BILLS
New Itemized Form Productive of Com
plaints From Householders.
Kickers fairly swarm over the office
of the registrar of waterworks and his
entire force has been turned into an in
formation bureau to explain the new
form of bills sent out. Unlike the old
form, the new system of bookkeeping
requires the bills to be itemized in de
tail, whereas it has been customary in
tho past to send simply a statement of
the amount due. The itemized account
was given on the receipt, but before the
water consumer had a chance to ex
amine it, the bill was paid and kicking
was useless.
The situation is vastly different now
and the property owners are more or
less disturbed over the items, which
they are now studying for the first time.
They protest loudly that they have not
had the use of the various services
they are charged for and offer to prove
it, but get little satisfaction except to
see the inspectors' reports. The most
numerous protests are against the
charge for sprinkling, which many peo
ple consider an imposition.
The new system of bookkeeping is a
nuisance to the waterworks department
at present and will continue so until
people are educated to it.
Reo Wins Honors.
Further particulars were received
here yesterday of the sensational work
of the motor cars on Pecowsic Hill, in
Springfield, Mass., on Wednesday, in
which more than twenty-five cars com
peted. The greatest surprise of the day
was the performance of the new 16-
horse power Reo car, driven by F. H.
Pratt. The latest product of Mr. R. E.
Olds not alone took first prize in its
class for cars from $1,000 to $1,500, but
it made better time than many higher
priced machines.
In Class it negotiated the incline
of two-fifths of a mile in 54 4 5 seconds,
or at the rate of twenty-three miles an
hour. There were five cars in this class.
The grade is from nine to twelve per
cent. R. M. Owen, sales manager of the
Reo Motor Car Co., said today that with
the Reo Bird in track racing and the
stock cars in hill-climbing and endur
ance runs, the product would be well
represented in the various competitions
promoted this year to show the worth
of motor cars.
FREIGHT AGENTS COMING
May 13, 1905
main oration
at a Norwegian independence day cele
bration.
John W. Arctander, the attorney,
made a special trip to Washington to
secure a message from the president,
and will introduce resolutions to be
sent to the president and to Oscar II.,
king of Norway and Sweden. These
will touch on the consular controversy
between Norway and Sweden.
Interest has equally been taken by
Swedes and Norwegians in making the
festival a success this year. C. A.
Smith, the lumberman, has written an
open letter to the Swedish newspapers,
urging the Swedes to unite in celebrat
ing the Norwegian independence day as
a demonstration of the patriotism and
good feeling that could be well emu
lated in the old country.
The railroads have given a special
rate of a fare and a third. Nearly 500
reserved seat tickets have already been
secured by out-of-town people. The
sale of reserved seats will open Mon
day morning at the Metropolitan Music
store.
National Convention Will Gather Here
Next Month.
While most conventions secure and
advertise special railroad rates, there
is to be a convention in Minneapolis
which will bring over a thousand visi
tors to the city, and there will not be
a rate on any line. Moreover, there
will be few if "any fares paid.
The American association of local
freight agents' associations will meet
here June 13 IB- bringing delegates
fiom all over the United States.
The first meeting of the convention
will be held in the Bijou Opera house,
where addresses of welcome will be
given bv Mayor Jones, Governor John
son, President F. R. Salisbury of the
Commercial club ,and some prominent
railroad official. The other sessions
will be held in the Nicollet hotel. The
convention will be purely a business
affair to discuss freight matters,
freight-handling methods and ways of
improving the freight service. There
are local associations in all cities hav
ing three or more lines, or a population
of over 50,000. The associations are
encouraged by all prominent railway
officials.

he speaks. I once asked him the rea
son and he explained it as follows: 'Me
severiteenth great-grandfather was
working in the tenth story of the Tower
of Babel, when a 'mut' of a hod car
rier on the thirty-ninth floor dropped
a hod full of bricks on his 'coco.' He
lost his voice, and ever since that time
the family has been busy trying to find
it.' His explanation tho not exactly
coWvincing is at least feasible.
I wish to state, however, that
'Buck,.' whose real name is Ray, is a
master of the art of bus engineering.
He can fill a bus to three times its ad
vertised capacity, and is always John-
ny-on-the-spot at train time. In fact
we set the clock by him."
Having delivered himself of this, he
gave the command of front' to a
sleepy-looking bell hop, and alrnounced
that the gentleman in 1031 wished a
can of ice.''

Diabetes.
1737 Broadway, San Francisco, May
6, 1905.
To the church women of Minneapolis.
It is so hard for people to believe
that Bright's Disease and Diabetes are
now curable that I am asked to permit
reference to my own case. There are
too many dying to remain silent. I
had both Bright's Disease and Dia
betes for over five years. Was very
feeble, had dropsy, and the physicians
told us the case was hopeless. 1^ heard
that people were being cured in this
city and procured the treatment. In.
a few months the dropsy disappeared
and in a year I was well. To show
how well, will say that later I stood a
capital operation at the Waldeck Sani
tarium in the presence of six physi
cians. Many friends, including Dr.
Markell of Cloverdale and Judge E.
B. Cutler of Pine street, are fully cog
nizant of my recovery. In face, Judge
Cutler is himself now recovering under
the same treatment. Let the cure be
proclaimed to the Nvorld.
