The scene ns Dr. Cook 'was greeted

whether he could observe his wife on

At one moment he thought he saw his
wife on a small tug. lit raised his hat

a false alarm, and the explorer returned

lined through the mist, 'and' Dr. Cook,
springing to tho eompanionway. leaped
across the intervening stretch of water
to the tug and dashed up to the hurri
cane deck, where his wife was waiting
for him, waving the Stars and Stripes.
The returned, explorer took her in his
arms without a single word passing be

ST. PAUL, Minn., Sept. 21. One of
the most remarkable tributes ever paid
to the memory of a public man iu Min
nesota was accorded to the lato Gov
ernor .lolin A. Johnson todav. From
the hour that the governor's death was
first publicly announced bv the lolling
of a school bell in Rochester, all pub
lic activities were abandoned.
Governor .Johnson's body was escort
ed to the special train by a throng of
citizens from every walk of life. On
the train were Mrs. .lohnson. a few
of her personal friends, state ollicers
and friends of tho late governor. As
the cortege passed down the street lead
ing to tho station the escort lined up
on either side with bared heads and
the hundreds of people around tlie depot
showed a like respect.
Mayor Thompson had proclaimed it
a day of public mourning, and the
mayor and councilmcn acted as pall
bearers. Flags at Half-Mast.
All the way .along the route lo St.
Paul Hags were at half-mast and build
ings draped with crepe. A touching
feature was the appearance of a large
number of school children lined up
along tho platforms, each provided with
the national colors.
The train was met in St. Paul bv de
tachments of all the local companies of
the National Guard and an escort of
police. Despite a heavy downpour of
rain, a great crowd was out. The body
was taken lo the state capitol, es
corted by militia, and placed in the
rotunda, where it will lie in stale until
tomorrow afternoon. Pour commis
sioned ofiicers of the National Guard,
four sergeants, four corporals and four
privates were assigned to stand guard.
Tomorrow afternoon Rev. F, .1. haw
less, chaplain of the governor's stair,
will conduct services in the capitol.
Thursday The bodv will be takon to St.
Potor, where finat services will be held
in the Presbyterian church.

Sympathy more than statewide goes out
today to a small' group in this little
Minnesota town which mourns for Gov

morning in St. Mary's hospital here.

week the governor's life had a peace

The last thing Governor .lohnson did
beforo lapsing into unconsciousness,
ono and a half hours beforo his death,
was to tako his wife's hand aud weakly
whisper: "Well, Nora. I. made a good
fight, but I guess I've got to go.''
Then, as the last gleam of intelligence
began to flicker, he pressed her haud
gently io his cheek in a parting caress.
Mayor Thompson loday issued a proc

a slate of public mourninc. and flags

Gustave Johnson was a blacksmith
and for a number of years he conducted
his business on a farm near St. Peter.
It was on this farm that the future
governor was born.
About the lime of the Indian trou

civil war the Johnsons moved to the
village of St. Peter, where tho father
ro-establishud his shop, but he failed to
prosper iu town and finally died, leav

in grocery and drug .-toros and in tho
meantime formed the reading habit,
managing to obtain a good education.
Always a Student.
It was as timekeeper for a firm of
railroad contractors, however, he has
said, that his best business training was
gained. But he was always more of
a student than a business" man. He
studied not only books but men, 'and
for the laiier he showed special apti

of people, to study them and to learn
from their experiences. C
Finally an opportunity was opened
for him to become editor and part

BY THE CITY PASTORS
Several Teachers in the City
Schools Also Object to the
Strenuous cxccptiotLJs taken by tho ll
Ministerial association of Salt L'ako '
City to tho arrangements mado by the ''H
general committee for the reception of '
President W. II. Taft. According to '
unanimous resolution passed by the as- 'H
sociatiou at a meeting held Tuesday,
they not-only disapprove of the day on '
which the living ilag and the assembly jH
of children is to be reviewed by Presi-
dent Taft, but they think the time in IH
not opportune. They believe that iho i'H
function should be held on Saturday ''jH
and the ministers express the belief
that the arrangements for the Sunday '
functions were not made by the consent
oi President Taft.
Three teachers, representing the '
teaching corps of the O.quirrh school, ll
addressed a letter to Superintendent D. j IH
II. Christcitscn expressing the hope that ' 1
the day for the review of the children ''
should be set for Friday or Saturday. ' IH
Following is the text of the rcsolu
tion adopted unanimously by the Salt
Lake City Ministerial association: -
We are very much gratified that Prcsl- IH
dent Taft has included our beautiful and
rapid Iv growing city In Ills public offl
clal Itinerary. We hold it to be the duty,
and wish that It may be the pleasure
of all loyal citizens to give him a coidla.
welcome, and to do everything In their
power to honor him, both ou account of 'H
his personal worth and because of thr
exalted position to which he has beer
chosen. We deplore the face, however
that. In the programme of exercises con- 'mM
nected with Ids visit, as now announced,
tho principal address by the president IH
and the most Important public functior lH
in his honor, arc arranged to take place JH
We believe that it would have beer ll
more In keeping with the traditions ot
this Christian nation, more pleasing to IH
the president himself, and that it v.otill IH
have been (pilte as convenient for tbe jH
public, If Saturday had been chosen fo: .-'
those principal functions. !
This Invasion or the sabbath is all th IH
more grievous because lhat particular ,ll
part of It l chosen which most beriouslv 'H
interferes with the meeting of Sund.v iH
schools and the gathering of congrcg- IH
Hons In the churches for the public wor- fl
ship of God; and because the choice ol JH
the day at all was wholly unnecessary. jH
We do not believe, that cither the d.i iH
or the hour for these most public demon-
strntlous has been selected by the prcsl- 'H
dent's personal choice. He would ne,i i
be so urimlndfifl of the example set in
such matters by his illustrious predeccs- H
sors In office; nor would he ever fail oi
the respect due to .the religious customs
of so many of his. fellow citizens; and jH
least of all would he forget the revercner H
due to the Divine Being whom ho and
