Twelve Great Novels.
Twelve great novels by twelve great
authors, all in one year, may sound like
a large undertaking for a daily news
paper^ but this is exactly what The
Journal is prepared to offer its read
era. By association with ten or a
dozen of the greatest daily newspapers
in the country, The Journal is able
to lay before its readers the most at
tractive offering in the way of serial fic
tion ever presented under any cireum
stances in this country.
These authors are equally divided as
to nationalitysix English and six
American. They are also equally di
vided in one other respect, that six are
women and six are men. Curiously
enough, too, the six Americans are wo
men and the six English authors are
men. The brilliant list in the order in
which it is expected to present their
works is as follows:
Mr. Robert Barr, author of "Tekla,"
"The Mutable Many," "The Face in
the Mask," etc., will present the first
of this series of stories under the title
of A Bock in the Baltic." This is
an international romance of thrilling in
cident, the ingenious tale holding the
reader from start to finish with stirring
scenes laid in the United States, in Eng
land, in Russia and with an extraordi
nary happening in the Baltic.
SecondMrs. Burton Harrison, au
thor of "The Anglomamacs,'' "Tho
Oircle of a Century," "Helen of
,JTroy," etc. This distinguished Ameri
can novelist will piesent a delightful
end up-to-date romance, the title of
"Which for copyright reasons cannot be
given at this time.
ThirdMr. Edward Frederick Ben
ion, son of the late Archbishop of Can
terbury, who startled London some
twelve years agd -with his first story
"Dodo." The flash and sparkle of
that cynieal book gave promise of the
brilliant work which this young writer
ha3 been doing since, and which he will
undertake in the story which he is pre
paring for this series.
FourthMrs. Mary E. Wilkins-Free
man, author of "Pembroke," "Made-
lcn," "The Portion of Labor," etc.,
who has won high fame as a delineator
of New England life and character, will
give us, in this instance, something of
a diversion! from her New England
scenes and characters, but not less
marked for its originality and fresh
Fifth Mr. Eden Philpotts, author of
"The Secret Woman," "Gold Fetich,"
"Children of the Mist," etc. The son
of a soldier and reared in India, he is
ranked among the first of English nov
elists. His romance will bo laid in
England and the "West Indies.
SixthJohn Oliver Hobbes (Mrs.
Craigie), author of "The Flute of
,Pan," "The School for Saints," "The
Ambassador," etc., is a woman of
strong personality, who has many
iriends both in the field of literature
and on the platform. The_ novel which
She will produce for this series has al
ready been prepared for production on
the American stage after publication in
SeventhMi. Max Pemberton, author
fit "Christine of the Hills," \'Dr.
Kavier," etc., an English author of
great popularity, will write a sketch of
an American impresario in London,
with many lively adventures in the
jBalkans, which will appeal strongly to
his women readers.
EighthMrs. Amelia E. Barr, a pro
lific writer and an author of many suc
cessful novels, including "The Lion's
iWhelp," "Prisoners of Conscience,"
'"I, Thou, and the Other One," etc., is
already at work on a strong story for
i this series.
NinthMr. C. J. Cutcliffe Hyne is
writing a story which will have as a
central theme, the character* of a most
extraordinary girl of action. The
i scenes are laid in Europe and on the
west coast of Africa. Mr. Hyne is
known as the author of
tie, K. C. B.," "Adventures of Captain
Kettle," "Lost Continent," etc. He
bas written many stones of adventure
I which have been exploited extensively
I by the Harmsworth (London) maga
zines. as well as in America.
TenthMrs. Gertrude Atherton is so
well known to American readers as
scarcely to need a word of introduction,
among her most popular and successful
books being The Conqueror," Sena
tor North" and "The Dooms woman."
She will not allow her reputation to suf
fer in what she is to prepare for the
largest circle of readers ever accorded
to any American novelist.
EleventhDr. Ian MacLaren, whose
delightful stories of Scottish life have
Blade his name a household word, is
writing his novel for this series in
Egypt. It will be a historical romance,
in which the central figure will be one
who has never, been portrayed in his
private character. Dr. MacLaren will
be recognized as the author of "Be-
,side the Bonny Brier Bush," "After
jwards," "'Kate Carnegie," etc.
TwelfthMrs. Anlfet Katherine Green
is notable for her detective
tories. No American writer vhas ever
approached her success in construction
a plot. She made her first reputa

The stories will "be printed at the
rate of one each month in installments
of 10,000 to 15,000 words. They will
come, to the reader at more frequent in

for collecting together for" reading all
at one time if desired.
W think we hardly need to add any
thinng to commend the attractiveness
of this offer to the people of the north*
west. In addition to their daily and
Sunday Journal, they will receive at
intervals of at least twice a week large
installments of these new stories by
eminent authors, without the slightest
increase in expense.
The first installment of "The Bock
in the Baltic" will appear Thursday,

The President's Letters.
The Washington correspondent of
The Journal sets forth in his dis
patches today that the democrats of
the senate are holding the president
guilty of a violation of the spirit of tlie
constitution in conferring with mem
bers of the senate on the rate bill. This
is very satl especially in view of the
fact that the democratic senators must
have equally violated the spirit of the
constitution in conferring with the
president. We desire to avoid the
thought of Senator Bailey sneaking
about the dark corridors of the capital
with the ghastly remains of a slain con
stitution under his coat, seeking a place
to hide the body of the crime. It is
too painful to contemplate Bailey the
defender in this inconsistent and bloody
attitude. But if Bailey is going to
hold the president, who is not a blue
ribbon lawyer, to a strict accountabili
ty, we must ask Bailey himself, who has
drawn four first and two second prizes
as an expouader of the venerable docu
ment in the senate, to keep away from
the "White House and lead not Theodore
But it is not the constitution of the
United States these senators are pained
about. Their vociferation over the
wound to the official copy of our na
tional charter covers a very severe pain
their political inwards which they
feel, but which they hope other peo
ple -will not laugh at.
The president has deprived them of
something whieh democratic senators
have not had for a long time, and which
they hunger for, and that is a political
victory. Political victory was not to
bo theirs, but the democratic senators
should even in their agony remember
that the Scripture says, he that ruleth
himself is greater than he that taketh a
city. The democratic senators did not
take a city, but they still had a chance
to show that they were among the im
mortals by concealing their wounds.
In this they have not been very success
ful. They have burst forth with vio
lence and they have compelled the
president to say that they are mistaken
abou several things.
The necessity imposed upon the presi
dent of taking notice of what occurred
in debate in the upper house must have
been unpleasant to the president, not
because he did not have things to say
and language lying about loose to say
them. But because the president, ac
cording to the traditions cannot go
down among the combatants and
snatching a sword from the nearest
whale about him. He is limited to is
suing statements from the White House
patched up of letters from others to
himself and from himself to others.
Even then the president is quite apt to
dignify an incident beyond its deserts.
.The president clearly did so in this case,
would have done better to have
maintained the silence of the White
House under political assault. Men like
Tilllman can keep the ear of the coun
try only when more substantial men
deign to answer them.
Alfred Lee, composer of the popular
song "Champagne Charlie," has just died

The Primary Law.
The Hennepin republican association
is several lengths behind the state high
schools, which have already decided the
primary-law question adversely to the
primary. However, the Hennepin Re
publican association is entitled to its
day in court, and having been unavoid
ably detained while the high school de
bate was on, now takes its turn. Sev
eral speakers at the republican meeting
denounced the primary as opposed to
the cardinal principles of the repre
sentative system of government under
which we live. Others defended the
primary on the utilitarian ground that
it had broken up ring rule. But the
opponents of the primary would prob
ably reply that the subject should not
be debated on the low ground of util
itarianism. If the primary is taxed
with enmity to cardinal principles it
must defend itself from the charge and
not try to evade the issue by claiming
it had done something useful.
But the other side may reply that
representation is not cardinal at all.
It amounts simply to people sending
messengers to do something for them
instead of going themselves. If at any
time it seems better or safer to transact
their business direct, they have the in
herent right to exercise that power.
As between states which send delegates
to conventions to select governors, may

nominating is done in a direct primary

It is a question of the comparative
usefulness of the two systems. The
convention or representative system has
received severe jolts of late years. It
has been wholl^ or partly abandoned

ing against all politicians or only a
suspicion of some, is not important.

Not Worth Fighting For.
County-seat fights are a feature of
every campaign year. There are not
so many as usual this season. The Da
kota county contest has been called off.
The people of Farmington sensibly
dropped the matter after they had
gone to the great trouble of filing a
petition for an election, which was im
mediately riddled by Hastings and
robbed of names enough to make it in
valid. The perennial Jackson-Lake
field fight is on. Jaokson was able to
secure enough withdrawals from the
first Lakefield petition to spoil it, and
now Lakefield is returning to the at
tack with a second petition.
These contests are expensive, and a
good many thriving towns have come
to realize that the game is not worth
the candle. Very little business is at
tracted by a courthouse, and aside from
the county. offleers added to the popu
lation, and the crowd drawn for court
week there is not much tangible ben
efit to be derived. On the other hand,
the citizens of a county town are apt
to go to sleep and quit hustling, de
pending too much on the city's pres
tige. Instances are on record where
a town has been shaken out of its rut
by losing the county seat, and has en
tered on a new era of business enter
prise and prosperity. Sauk Rapids was
formerly the seat of government for
Benton county, brtt lost the courthouse
in an exciting fight a few years ago.
Since that time the old town, which
was in a moribund condition, has
aroused to a second youth. It has se
cured some valuable manufacturing
plants, and is once more enjoying a
boom. The change might have come*
anyway, but the citizens of the town
all say that their new prosperity dates
from the loss of the courthouse. That
was a shock that put new life in'them.
They realize now that it is not a court
house that makes a city, any more than
a title makes a man. It is the spirit
that hustles and commands success.

of, the bitter conflict that ended in

and redolent with the pattest of up-to

matic, an action that never flags or
allows the auditor's interest to clo so,

understood, and appreclated-on the sfegg

the comedy is a trifle too broad, the
situations too risque or the action a
little too suggestive, it Is lost sight of
in the predominance of better thrngs.
Based upon a woman's cynicism and

that all men are false, the farce begins
with a plan of the wives to entrap their

Five companies of Journal cadets are
assigned to the Armory campus for
drills tonight. Weather indications are
that rain may interfere.
Cadets^ should remember, however,
that-in case of rain, arrangements have
been made so the armory on Kenwood
boulevard can be used for shelter, as
The model guns are ready now to be
distributed to companies, but this will
not be done until June 1, so that all
energies can be concentrated on foot
movements for the turn-out on Decora

have been assigned the leading place in
a division and full announcements will
be made by' Colonel Sprague in Sun
It should be understood that only the
cadets who have provided themselves
with uniforms will be allowed in the
Decoration day parade, so especial effort
should be made by the cadets who have
not'tfniforms, to procure them. It is
hoped to have at least 600 cadets in
uniform. Sixty sabers for officers have
been ordered for delivery within a week
to those entitled to them.
BANE'S GEEAT GROWTH
^Torth Side Institution If ow HaB Splen
didly Equipped Safety Vaults.
The growth of the city of Minneap
olis along all lines is perhaps best ex
emplified oy the prosperous condition of
its financial institutions. O the North
Side the German American bank stands
as a fair example of the conservative,
yet progressive spirit of the times. Un
der the control of its able and efficient
officers -and directors this bank's
growth has been such that a new build
ing for the proper handling^f its large
business became imperative. The erec
tion of a beautiful colonial building, be
ing one of the most modern banking
structures, has called forth praise and
compliments from the entire commun
The banking rooms are large and
elegantly furnished, each department
being so arranged that the increasing
business of the Dank may be handled
with comparative ease. Special atten
tion has been given to the conveniences
for patrons of the safety deposit de
The vaults, the vital part of every
bank, are equipped in a manner that
can leave no wish for improvement.
Massive vault doors, large safes of the
best manufacture and safety deposit
boxes have all been included. Realiz
ing that absolute protection for its own
and its depositors' valuables was a most
important feature, the bank has recent
ly purchased and had its vaults
equipped with the most modern electri
cal device ever known. Double plates
of steel, electrically charged, line every
inch of the vaults of the bank. This
lining is furnished to correspond with
the decoration of the banking rooms,
and transforms the vaults into beauti
ful rooms of cream and gold.
The lining of the vaults, vault doors
and vestibules are all electrically con
nected with five large alarm gongs,
which in case of an attempt bv anyone
to tamper with the vaults of this bank,
would sound an alarm sufficient to
arouse the whole community. A beau
tiful hardwood cabinet stands inside
one of the vaults and contains the
switchboard, electrical automatic tim
ers, electrical automatic time locks and
storage batteries that control and
operate the entire system.
The doors of the vault are con
trolled by the automatic time locks,
which permit the opening of the doors
during business hours only. For in
stance when the vaults are closed after
banking hours, the electrical connec
tions are made by the time locks, which
Close the vaults electrically until the
next morning at 8 'cjpek, when the
electrical time locks allow the doors to
be opened. Every time the vault
doors are opened or closed during the
day, two test tells or warning bells
sound, which signifies that the system
IS in perfect condition. I other words
this device is automatic in its opera
tion, and absolutely guards the bank
