Morphine Victim Locked Up.
Rex Dunlap, a Minneapolis youth, a victim
of the morphine habit, was the only occupant
of the central station last night. Dunlap was
arrested by Officer Twohy early yesterday
morning in an alley on Seventh street, and
when approached by the officer said he was
searching for a diamond he had lost. On ar
riving at the station a hypodermic syringe,
-with a small bottle of the dope was found in
Dunlap's i>ocket. All day yesterday the youth,
who is only twenty-one years of age, was
under -the care of the city physician and this
morning he will be taken to court. Dunlap
claims that his mother resides on Polk street,
northeast Minneapolis. He was taken in cus

RIGHTS Of RIDERS
CYCLING OUT THE SIDEWALKS DE
BATED BEFORE THE ALDfcR
HORACE BIGELOW'S SCHEME
MEETS WITH THE FAVOR OF THAT
BRANCH OF THE CITY
COL. CLOIGH RIDICULES IT.
Say* He Does Not Want to Ran
Footraceti With Atliletic Pedes
If the bicycle ordinance recom
mended yesterday by the committee
on streets of the board of aldermen,
should go into effect, bicyclists can
use the sidewalks, but they will be
obliged to dismount whenever they
may have ocacsion to pass a pedes
trian, whether the latter is traveling
in the same or the opposite direction.
In other words, the ordinance which
was fathered by Aid. Bigelow, amounts
to a practical prohibiton of all riding
upon sidewalks frequented by any
considerable number of pedestrians.
The committee took this action after
listening for an hour and a half to
the arguments of wheelmen and' pe
destrians, who assembled within the
council chamber yesterday afternoon.
Some fifty or more citizens attended
the meeting of the committee. Tha
members of the committee present
were Chairman Kunney and Aldermen
Bigelow, Bell and Kaldunski. The
cyclists were strongly represented. Of i
all the speeches only one was deliv
ered in the nature of protest against
allowing the cyclists to use the side
walks, and that was only local in its
bearing, the speaker protesting
against the "scorchers" who render
life uncertain on Maryland avenue in
the vicinity of Greenbrier street. The
feature of the session was the speech
of Col. W. P. Clough.
A. B. Ovitt, the president of the St.
Paul Cycle Path association, was the I
first to address the committee. Mr.
Ovitt's remarks were general in char
acter. He simply informed the com
mittee that the wheelmen of the city
had begun the agitation to rule the
bicycles off the sidewalks, and had
raised some $3,000 for the construction
of cycle paths and had asked the city
to expend only $500. Mr. Ovitt said
that the hostility of the pedestrians to
the bicyclists had arisen from a mis
understanding on the part of the for
mer regarding the signals to be given
by the latter. When a pedestrian
hoard a bicycle bell, the signal meant
that he was to pursue his way, not
dodge the bicyclist, who would look out
for himself. Mr. Ovitt urged that the
wheelmen be given a trial before pass
ing a strict and rigid ordinance, and
be allowed an opportunity to regulate
the few hoodlums who had caused all
W. E. Bramhall, who draftad the
ordinance introduced by Aid. Dono
hower, followed Mr. Ovitt. Mr. Bram
hall remarked at the outset that the
bicycle, although it had come into ex
istence since the streets of St. Paul had
been laid out, was now recognized by
the people as one"*of the forms of con
veyance, Mr. Bramhall. admitted that
he did not consider a sidewalk a proper
place for a wheel. The wheel should
have^a piece the same as other vehicles.
'But in the spring for instance it was
impossible for wheelmen to use the
roadways, but until the city was ready
to provide a thoroughfare for bicycles,
the wheelmen ought tc be allowed to
use the only ways which they could
use with safety to pedestrians and
themselves, namely the sidewalks un
der certain restrictions.
Mr. Bramhall laid stress upon the
action of the Cycle Path association in
offering to provide the city with 100
special policemen, mounted on wheels,
who would make it their business to
enforce whatever ordinance might be
passed. Moreover the enterprise-of the
association in building cycle paths was
an additional reason for extending
some consideration to the wheelmen.
"What would be the consequence of rul
ing them off all sidewalks? It would
amount to a prohibition in the case of
the great majority of them who could
not ride to and from their homes to
their places of business, without using
sidewalks. The masses of wheelmen
were for the most part poor people.
Mr. Bramhall did not approve of the
dismounting section of Aid. Bigelow's
ordinance. He was confident it wculd
not be obeyed. He referred to the non
enforcement of the existing bicycle
ordinance and instanced the behavior
of Minneapolis Wheelmen, who shouted
as they came within the, St Paul
limits, "Come on, boys, no bicycle
ordinance is enforced in St. Paul!"
In conclusion Mr. Bramhall said that
if the cycle bath association was not
able with the aid of its special police
men to enforce the ordiance approved
by the association, then he promised
the committee on behalf of the associ
ation that it would ask the council to
prohibit all sidewalk riding.
The committee then gave Aid. Mark
ham a hearing. Aid. Markham did not
make a speech. He simply introduced
the assembly ordinance prepared by
Geo. W. Markham and S. L. Cotton, the
distinguishing provisions of which the
Qlobe published in yesterday's ac
count of the assembly proceedings.
At this stage Aid. Kenny remarked
that all the ordiances were good, but
he didn't see how they could be en
Then Col. W. P. Clough was heard.
Col. Clough enflg-htened the committee
and everybody else present with a com
bination of mathematical and philo
sophical deductions as entertaining as
they were instructive.
"I represent," said the star member
of the Parker retrenchment committee,
"only one class of bicycle riders—those
who ride for pleasure only. I am also
an enthusiastic pedestrian. If my
recollection serves me, I have not had
the pleasure of meeting any of the
members of the committee on streets
of the board of aldermen on my riding
aud walking excursions. It is "quite
possible, therefore that certain facts
may have come under my personal ob
servation which none of you gentlemen
have witnessed. While, as I have said,
I ride for pleasure only, the great class
of bicycle riders is composed of those
who ride for business. Their wheels
convey them frcm their homes .to 1 their
places of business. This class will
yrow from -year to year. Now the
wheelmen of this city are representa
tive citizens and taxpayers. Any ordi
nance that would materially interfere
with their right to operate their wheels
to and from their places of business
would be good for the street railway. It
woujd help the company very much.
But the street car company has, not
been the only sufferer in consequence
of the bicycle. The most prominent
liquor dealer in this state told me re
cently that the saloons were the big
gest sufferers. I tell you,' gentlemen,
that the wheel has come to stay, and
will remain as long as the city of St.
Coi. Clough disputed the statement
that there was riot room enough for
bicycles and pedestrians on the side
walks in the outer portions of the city.
These sidewalks, in his opinion con
tained room enough for four times as
many pedestrians and wheelmen as
ever appeared upon them. One Sunday
afternooon Col. Clough, while walking
out Summit avenue, saw only four pe-

destrians between Dale street and
Referring- then to Aid. Bigelow's dis
mounting ordinance. Col. Clough said:
"I would approve of Aid. Bigelow's
ordinance If it was amended so that
in case I wished to pass a pedestrain
going in the same direction, I wculd
not have to dismount and run a foot
race with him. (Laughter). The ped
estrian might outwalk me and in that
case I could never pass him." (Laugh
Col. Clough contended that no wheel
man or wheelw-->man had a right to
more than half a sidewalk. He said
that he had never seen a collision upon
a sidewalk, but that he had frequently
been run into by vehicles when on the
street. Of the 400 miles of sidewalk in
St. Paul, 300 miles were rolling.
Wheeling, so Col. Clough considered
it, was duly a mode of pedestrianism.
"I feel that my rights to the sidewalk
"are just the same when on a wheel,"
said Col. Clough, "as when on focrt. If
you prohibit sidewalk riding you simply
turn the nickles of the great majority
of the wheelmen and wheelwomen over
to the street railway company."
In conclusion Col. Clough said that
he considered that the present bicycle
ordinance was good enough, or Bige
low's if amended in the particular re
ferred to. The situation was this: If
the bicyclists were forced into the
streets, they were forced under the
This practically dossed the discus
sion. Aid. Kenny still objected that no
means of catching violators of the or
diance were provided for, whereupon
Mr. Bramhall wanted to know what
was to be done with people driving car
riages who run over others and then
drive on. Was that any reason for pro
hibiting the driving of carriages and
wagons on the streets?
Aid. Bell expressed himself as in favor
of allowing the use of : sidewalks on
N. F. Beardsley, a resident of Mary
land avenue, wanted protection against
the scorchers who frequent the new
White Bear cycle path and manifest
little regard for anybody else.
A. E. Boyesen believed in arresting
scorchers- and fining them to the ex
tent of the ordinance, which course
would soon put a stop to the practice.
The meeting then adjourned and the
committee retired and after a brief dis
cussion decided to recommend the.pass
age of Aid. Bigolow's ordinance, which
permits ridins on all sidewalks, some
of those bordering on cycle paths and
parks, but requires bicyclists to dis
mount before passing any pedestrian.
The recommendation was adopted by a
vote of three to one, Aid. Bell voting in
the negative. Aldermen Kenny, Big
elow, and Kaldunski were confident
that the general sentiment of the citi
zens of St. Paul was in favor of pro
hibiting the use by bicyclists of all
sidewalks within the city limits.

Republican Council After the Board
of Public Works.
For the express purpose of dispos
ing of certain routine business both
bodies of the common council have ar
ranged to hold adjourned meetings
next week—the board of aldermen on
Tuesday and the assembly on Thurs
day night. It is learned, however, that
the real purpose of these meeting's is to
consider the advisibility of adopting
the state law passed in 1895 for the
abolition of the board of public works,
and jthe substitution in place of the
four members of the board of a com
missioner of public works, to be ap
pointed by the mayor. Those most in
terested and anxious for the change
say that the council will adopt the-law
The members of the council, however,
are not saying a word. They have
kept mum from the start, and "the<
start" dates back to a period prior to
the inauguration of the mayor. Dur
ing the latter part of May the mem
bers-elect of the new common council
held two caucuses with a view of as
certaining the predominating senti
ment regarding the board of public
works. That sentiment appeared to be
in favor of abolishing the board of pub-^
He works. Accordingly, a committee*
consisting chiefly of the legal lights of
the council, was appointed to consider,
in conjunction with certain well-known
lawyers of the city, the act of 1895, pro
viding for departments of public works,
with a view to determining whether it
was constitutional. Aldermen Mark
ham, Bigelow, Donahower and Bell and
Assemblyman Lewis were among those
appointed to serve on the committee..
The whole proceeding has been kept
very quiet, but it is understood that
the committee "has •decided that the law
is constitutional and will recommend'
its adoption. It is likewise understood
that Mayor Doran favors the adoption
of the act- which will authorize him to
appoint a commissipnr of public works
at a salary of $3,000 a year.
The law, provides for a single com
missioner of public works at - $3,000 a
year, who shall give his entire time to
his duties. He is to be appointed by
the mayor on the second Tuesday in
June of each even-numbered year, and
in the Interval between the taking ef
fect of the act and the second Tuesday
of June 1898, it provides that the mayor
shall appoint a man to fill the post.

Embodied In Law,
The annual mid-summer meeting of
the State Horticultural Society which
was held at the Experimental station
of the State University at St. Anthony
park yesterday, proved not only one of
the most interesting, but also one of
the most important gatherings in the
history of the organization, as out of
it will probably grow legislative enact
ment for the preservation of Minne
sota forest lands, an accomplishment
for which the farmers of the state
have striven for nearly twenty years.
As has been the custom of the Hor
ticultural society in the past the fore
noon of yesterday was devoted to the
pursuit of pleasure rather than bus
iness, and under the direction of
Prof. Green, of the Experimental
station, those who visited the grounds
early in the day were shown about
the farm and escorted through the
new buildings which have been erected
since the meeting of the society last
With the invitations which had bid
den the members of the s6ciety to the
| annual meeting- had gone the an-*
• nouncement that the guests would be
served with a picnic lunch in the
grove situated to the west of the ad
ministration building and promptly at
the noon hour Prof. Green conducted
the assembled company to nature's
banquet board where the delicacies 'of
the season were spread appetizingly.
Fanned by the cool breeze which
swept the quiet grove, the visitors dis
cussed a most enjoyable meal, whence
they were summoned after an hour's
time to the gymnasium, where was to
take place the business session of the
society, an admirable and comfortable
place of meeting.
Having deeply concerned itself with
the preservation of the state's forest
lands the horticultural society de
termined to devote yesterday's session
to a x discussion of this question, and
had accordingly invited the members of
the State Forestry association to be
present, in addition to all who were
Interested in reclaiming the vast do
mainswhich had»been denuded of their
primeval forests, so that ,when Presi
dent John Underwood, of the horticul
tural society, called the meeting to
rrder there was present an audience of
twenty people, each anticipating an in
teresting and instructive discussion up
on the special order of the day.
Following the call to order President
Underwood introduced D. R. McGinnis,
secretatry of the St. Paul Commercial
club, who had been asked to prepare a
resolution covering the forestry ques
tion, to be presented to the meeting.
Mr. McGinnis delivered a brief but en
thusistic address commendatory of the
purpose of the gathering, concluding by
offering the following resolution, which
was unanimously adopted:
. Whereas, The best Interests of the pub
lic demand that as important an industry
as that of lumbering should be perpetuated,
and whereas, a proper percentage of forests
exercises a most favorable Influence upon
the growth and prosperity of the country by
checking the sweep of the winds, by main
taining an even and abundant supply of
moisture in the ground, thus tending to
continue the flow of our springs and rivers
in even volume, and whereas, it is especially
desirable that in a cold climate like Mlnnne-
Bota, -a certain percentage of the forests
covering this state should be maintained, to
prevent the drifting of snow In winter and
drying out.of the land in summmer, and to
promote borllly comfort thereby, and to
supply of fuel" in a state which, though
rich in other resources, is destitute of coal
measures, and whereas, the experience of
older countries is 'that the public interest
has made it necessary to reforest at an
enormous expense lands previously denuded,
and whereas, the highest expression of civil
ization demands that no great resource of
nature should be annihilated, therefore be it
Resolved, That th« Minnesota State Horti
cultural Society and the Minnesota Forestry
Association favor the legitimate use of our
mature forest resources for the demands of
trade and commerce, > and the reforesting
of a proper percentage, of our denuded forest
lands In order that bur forest resources
may be maintained:
Resolved, That a non-political commission
be created of persons, experienced In forest
management to make such selection of such
lands belonging to the state as are better
suited to forestry than to agriculture, the
title of which is to be .continued forever in
the state, and that such lands be main-
Resolved, That the' State Horticultural
Society and the Mifinesdta Forestry Associa
tion endorse the act passed at the last session
of the legislature for the; protection of the
state from forest and prairie fires, as a for
ward step in the intelligent management of
the forest resources of the state.
Resolved, That a general committee of the
State Horticultural Society and the Minnesota
Forestry Association, of other kindred organ
izations in the state, and of the citizens of
the state of Minnesota, be appointed to frame
and promote the passage of a suitable for
estry law to be presented to the next
Legislature of the State of Minnesota for
the creation of a permanent forest domain,
as an act suitable and appropriate to the
present demands and conditions of the state.
Resolved, That the members of the State
Horticultural Society and the Forestry Asso
ciation pledge themselves to further by all
possible means, the object named In the fore-'
With the adoption of the resolution,
President Underwood announced that
the meeting was to be considered open
for the general consideration of the best
means of accomplishing the object of
C. L. Smith, of Minneapolis, opened
the discussion with a statement of the
reasons why, from a sanitary point of
viewf the forests should be preserved
and heartily endorsed the manner in
which the Horticultural society had
taken the matte*: up, though he fore
• saw many difficulties in the way of
securing the enactment of a satisfac
tory law. He ha 4 been a member of a
committee which Chapl framed a "hill to

Secretary Barrett, of the State
Forestry association, expressed a doubt
concerning the advijfability of precip
ating action In a matter of such im
portance, and expressed the opinion
that it would be better policy to leave
the question of ways and means open
for further consideration rather than
to prejudice the movement by too hasty
action. He suggesting that the exe
cutive committee of "the Horticultural
society be authorized tc select a com
mittee from the society to co-operate
with a similar committee from the pro
posed movement. The suggestion was
adopted and President Underwood,
Secretary Latham, and Wyman Elliot,
of Minneapolis, were deputized as such

Following a general discussion of the
need of the contemplated legislative
action, Captain J. N. Cross, of Minne
apolis, who has made an exhaustive
study of the forestry situation in Minne
sota, presented what was held to be a
simple and practical solution of the pro-
j fronted itself. Briefly its recommenda
j ticns were as follows:
First, that the legislature constitute state,
county aj:d town forestry boards; far economy
the town fcoard of supervisors to constitute
the town forestry beards, the county commis
sioners the county forestry boards, and the
state forestry board to consist of nine mem
bars, as fallows: The state land camnv.ssioner,
chairman, the person occupying the chair of
horticulture (at pretsent including arboricul
ture) in the agricultural department of the
I State University, the person having In charge
the Minnesota section of the Climate and Crop
Service cf U. S. Weather Bureau: one mem
ber c>-sen by each of the following boards or
assoc ~iions from their own members: State
Forestry association, Farmer's Institute,
Board of Regents of the University, State
Lumbermen's association. Board of Public
Health, Fish and Game commission. All to
serve without pay, except actual expenses.
Second—That owners cf cut-over pine lands,
or other lands, especially rough, rocky and
sandy lands, which will probably not be
utilized for many years for agricultural
lands, when recommended by the town and
county forestry beards (the authority and
work of each board to be designated by the
legislature), may deed. t*;e same to the state
(reserving minerals, joils, coals and mineral
paints, with the right to hunt for, dig, mine
and carry away the same) for forestry pur
poses, and when so deeded the same shall
be exempt from taxes because dedicated to
public purposes. Such lands may be so
deeded, subject to taxes, tax forfeiture and
Third—The state forestry board shall take
charge of all such lands, tc be designated as
the "Reserved Forest Area," and care for the

the person offering tc deed the land or an
inhabitant and property owner of the county

i shall be final.
Fourth—The future Incomes derived from
such lands from whatever source shall be

Fifth—The state should have full power to
' lease for revenue, or for protection from fire
I or trespassers, low meadow tracts for pasture,
! where it would ont interfere with the growth
of the forest trees, and to sell dead and down
timber, which, as the adjoining lands are set
taled, will in the near future aggregate a
large income; and generally the state must
have full power of control, even the power of
alienation of certain tracts when recommended
by the State Board of Forestry, as where the
growth of towns-, the building of railroads,
water powers, etc., may necessitate aliena
tion; the proceeds of sale to be distributed as
are- the proceeds of the forest area.
At the conclusion of Captain Cross'
paper N. O. Nelson, Minneapolis cor
respondent for the North Western
Lumberman, explained the position of
the lumber dealers^ relative to the plan
proposed. The dealers, he stated, would
not endorse any plan which appeared
impractical or which would result in
pecuniary loss to themselves. Under
the present system' Mr, Nelson said,
the most vital consideration, so far as
the dealers were concerned, was the
matter of taxation. Cut overland and
land with standing timber was taxed
at the same rate and this rate alto
gether too high, thus forcing the own
ers to derive as milch revenue from
their investments as possible by cut
ting and re-cutting the timber, prevent
ing the growth of trees on the land
which has once been subjected to the
lumberman's operations. If the taxes
could be satisfactorily adjusted and
dlsorimina'tion made between cut-over
land and that which was yet virgin,
then the speaker was of the opinion
that the dealers would heartily endorse
the plan proposed by Captain Cross, as
it would no longer be necessary to cut
the later growths of young timber.
Ex-Gov. Pillsbnry endorsed the pur
poses of Captain Cross and at the same
time took occasion to criticise the offi
cials whose duty it was to apportion
the taxes on timber lands, saying that i
if they would fulfill the obligations of J
their offices by visiting the lands to
be assessed and equalizing the differ
ence in the valuation of virgin and
cut-over sections, there would be less
obstacles in" the way of securing the
cooperation of the lumber dealers.
Others to discuss the proposition be
fore the meeting were State Fire War
den Andrews, State Superintendent of
Public Instructions Pendergast, E. A.
Beala and S. M. Owen, president of the
State Forestry association and Prof.
S. B. Green, of the Agricultural college.

Rev. G v Li. Conley is quite put out

cacy of the appointment of T. D. Ma-
Icney as licence inspector. He said to
the Globe yesterday: I did favor

cause I knew him to be an honest man
and a temperance man who would

reason was discharged. The new policeman
