A. L. Cole, defoated republican nomi

The republican press of the state never

ST. PAUL HEARS ITALIANS
LEONCAVALLO AND HIS ORCHES-
TRA AND SINGERS DELIGHT
MUSIC LOVERS OF SISTER CITY.
St. Paul witnessed last night one of
the greatest concerts in its history.
The house was packed and the enthu
siasm which prevailed must have been
a delight to the great Italian composer
and conductor. Leoncavallo, with his
La Scala orchestra and seven soloists,
was in fine spirit and the music was
played with the dash, the high artistic
manner and with that emotion and
temperament for which that musical
body of Italians stands unrivaled.
Leoncavallo is a great genius, and
his conducting is without mannerism or
show. In the history of music he is
known all over the World. The singers
were Mines. Calvi, Ferrabinni and Riz
zmi, Signors Belatti, Perya, Barbaini
and De Ferran. All have fine voices
and sang with true Italian fervor.
Their exits showed the artistic finish
not only in singing, but also in stage
The orchestra was a large one and
fully suited to the Italian modern or
chestration of the great composer's
compositions. It was highly artistic
and full of emotional spirit.
Leoncavallo's march, dedicated to
President Roosevelt, is full of American
airs and presented "Yankee Doodle"
and "Dixie" in a novel and ingenious
way. It caught the fancy of the audi
ence and the applause and cheers were
Leoncavallo and his gifted artists
will be at the Auditorium this evening.
WHAT IS "CHARITY"?
Railroad and Citr Officials Disagree
and Dependent Is Held Up.
Chris Hanson, a legal resident of
Pipestone. Minn., was thrown upon the
care pf the Minneapolis poor depart
ment yesterday, and the disposition of
his case is bringing out some peculiar
points in the railroad-rate law.
Hansen became permanently disabled
and went from Pipestone to Oshkosh,
Wis., to stay with a brother. The broth
er has nine children, and being unable
to care for him, asked the authorities
there to send him to Minneapolis. He
arrived here yesterday and appealed to
the poor department for aid.
The department, of course, will send
him to Pipestone, where he is a resi
dent, but the railroad companies have
not agreed to grant a half-fare rate.
The Great Northern held that if the
city is paying for the transportation it
must pay full fare. Superintendent
Barton then made arrangements with
the man's friends to purchase a ticket.
The rate law allows half-rate for
charity cases, but the officials of the
road differ in their interpretation of the
law and definition of the word "char-
ity." CAPTAIN LAWRENCE DEAD

DULUTH RATE PROBE BROADENS
TO INCLUDE STATE.
Railway Commission Finds that Other
jParts of State Suffer from Tariffs
'Which Are Far from EqualHear
ings Will Be Held to Ascertain Basis
As a result of the request for the
filing of a new milk and cream tariff
by the. Northern Pacific Express com
pany, a case before the state railroad
eonvmissiont which it was at firs
thought only interested the territory
tributary to Duluth, is to broaden into
a general hearing for all express com
panies operating in the state and re
lating to all stations to or from which
milk and cream are shipped.
The hearing yesterday developed that
the new rate which the Northern Pa
cific Express company desires to put
into effect, altho it increases the old
rate into Duluth 50 per cent, is con
siderable of a reduction compared with
rates on other lines thruout the state.
It is a|so an innovation in that it makes
a flat rate on five-gallon cans for a
distance of eighty miles.
The old rate is a step rate, less for
distance up to eighty miles than the
proposed new rate and more for dis
tances exceeding eighty miles than the
new. The old rate on the Duluth line
of the Northern Pacific was peculiar in
that it made but one break (at a forty
mile distance) in its entire length.
Investigation to Be General.
The railroad commission thinks that
the request of the Northern Pacific Ex
press company to file its new tariff
should be open for general hearings,
in view of the fact that the Northern
Pacific wants to adopt the new tariff
not only into Duluth, but into the twin
cities and to all points, on like dis
tances, to which wilk and cream is
shipped. The commission desires that
these milk and cream rates be equal
ized for the benefit of both farmers
and creameries all parts of the state,
and at the hearings to come on the
subject, will bring out comparisons of
like distance hauls on all the express
company lines in Minnesota and to all
points of importance. The commission
is anxious to bring these hearings on
in a few days, just as soon as the tes
timony taken yesterday can be tran
scribed and distributed to interested
A comparison of the old rates which
prevailed on milk and cream shipments
along the Northern Pacific line in Min
nesota, outside of the Duluth branch,
which had a pseeial schedule, with the
proposed new rates, is herewith given,
the comparisons being made on the
five-gallon-can classification, in which
the proposed change is most marked:

OTHER FAMOUS HAIR-SPLIT-
TING POSTAL DECISION.
Corner coupons attached to maga
zine advertisements for the benefit of
persons wishing to order from them by
mail are writing material and, as such,
are merchandise, making the entire
magazine liable to a postal rate of 1

This is the ruling of E. C. Madden,
third assistant postmaster general, and

By a gradually increasing usage it
has become the custom of magazine ad
vertisers to turn one corner of their

volumes and illustrated in color by

Were this ruling to be enforced at

take advantage of Mr. Madden *s rul

to modify the postal laws as to relieve

A. M. Geesaman, the personal repre
sentative of Mayor D. P. Jones in the
campaign just closed, makes this state
ment in reply to an article in a morn
ing paper today to the effeet that he
made overtures to J. H. Merrick, who
claims to have organized the bolt of
Williams republicans and led them into
the Haynes camp:
I had supposed that the campaign
was ended. It has for me, altho if any
body insists on having the inside his
tory written, I am prepared to make
my contribution of facts.
I never made any overtures to
Merrick, either directly or indirectly.
I don't even know him by sight. After
the primaries I stood ready to co-operate
with any and all members of the party
toward republican success, regardless
of their primary affiliations. I had as
surances from so-called Williams men
that "they would get in line, and I know
that some of them did.
This is all I care to say by way of
a postmortem comment."

M0E ON CHICAGO
OUTGOING TRAINS CARRY CHEER-
'Long John" Sinclair and His YeUers
in Ordinary Figure on Making More
Encouraging Noise than Ever Was
Heard in State of IllinoisBetting
Literally covered with maroon and
gold ribbons and determined to outroot
the Chicago contingent in the yelling
contest which accompanied the game
this afternoon, 4,000 backers of the
Minnesota team left Minneapolis last
night for Chicago. Humming the re
frain, "Black in the face with their disgrace,
Eckersall's a most unlucky man,"
the gopher rooters, men and women,
piled onto the regular and special trains
billed for Chicago and to the cheers and
yells of the stay-at-homes, who thronged
the platforms and offered advice as to
methods of out-cheering the Chicago
undergraduates, the main body of the
Minnesota phalanx started on'the Chi
At the Great Western station "Lo ng
John" Sinclair, rooter king, with a
crowd of 200 undergraduates, took pos
session of five sleepers and proceeded
to frame things up for the arrival in
Chicago. Enthusiasm ran so high that
the rooter king, fearing for the condi
tion of the rooting brigade on the
morrow, was forced to put a check on
the vocal efforts of his constituents.
The special Great Western left at 7:15
last night and was due to arrive in
Chicago at 8 o'clock this morning. The
rooters planned to go immediately to
the Chicago Beach hotel and pay their
respeets to the team before "doing"
Two special sections were run on the

Chicago train. A special train of ten
coaches was also run by the Minneapo

Chicago trains leaving the city were
Betting Is Lively.
With the exodus of the rooters the
betting odds on the result of the game
became more nearly even. Yesterday
10 to 6 on Chicago was freely offered
with few takers, for the rooters wished
to put their money up in Chicago, and
there was a general feeling that odds
of 2 to 1 would be offered by the ma
roons. Today in Minneapolis Minne
sota money began to pour in at the
cigar stores, and at noon 5 to 4 was
the prevailing schedule with the Min
nesota men covering everything in sight
but refusing to offer even money.
Freak bets were popular. Odds of
5 to 3 that Minnesota would score a
touchdown found no takers, and a bet
of 3 to 5 that Chicago does not cross
the gopher line was untouched at noon,
proof that Mineapolis backers of Chi
cago were relying on Eckersall's leg
to win for the maroons.
Altogether a general spirit of confi
dencein the Minnesota team seemed to
prevail and it was universally pre
dicted that could the Minnesota giants
hold the maroons to no score or one
score in the first) half. Dr. Williams'
proteges would wear the maroons out
in the latter part of the game and win.
The great interest shown in the game
was evident when crowds began to
ather in front of the Journal bulletin
oar'd at 1:30, waiting for the first re
turns from the contest.

Long before the personnel of the new
city council was determined by the late
election, certain persons were laying
plans for capturing some of the plums
on the council's patronage tree. Thesfl
people were not eonfined to the present
office holders, who naturally are pulling
all the strings within reach in order to
retain their places.
Several of the aldermen believe that
the entire staff will be retained, but
admit that some may have rivals in the
field. The most opposition from outside
sources has developed against City As
sessor C. J, Minor and Gas Inspector
W. H. Roberts. Several men have al
ready been brought out against Mr.
Minor, notably C. L. Wallace and
George C. Merrill, but neither has fal
len in with the plans. The opposition
is looking for another man. A. D.
Meeds, the city chemist, is not a candi
date for gas inspector, altho he has
been urged to enter the lists.
Ralph W. Wheelock has been sug-
ested as a successor to L. A. Lydiard
city clerk, but Mr. Wheelock has
flatly refused to consider the matter.
It is understood that the other ap
pointees are likely to go thru the re
publican caucus without opposition.

Chicago, Nov. 10.Revenues of the
railroads of the country for carrying
the agricultural products for the year
1906 are estimated at $524,764,025 by
Captain G. J. Grammer, vicepresident
of the New York Central line* in
charge of traffic, who has compiled the
detailed figures on the subject. Trans
portation men consider the estimate
In figuring out the earnings which
are to come to the transportation com
panies from the products of the soil,
Captain Grammer takes into considera
tion the total crop production, its value
at current market rates, the amount of
carriage which each crop will entail,
the average railroad rate, and the earn
igs per car for the service.
The crops of 1906 are practically har
vested, and considerable progress in
the moving of many commodities to
mills and the seaboard alreadv has been
made. There, is enough in the records
of the trunk line roads already to give
the basis for the calculations and the
