I was troubled several years with cutaneous

from two doctors and received bv.t little re

itching liecame almost intolerable. When I
was heated, the Eczema became painful, and
almost distracted me. 1 was advised to try

and Minneapolis, with part of the en
tertainment at Minneapolis agreeing
tlmt the convention proper would be
held in St. Paul. This arrangement
was agreed to unanimously by th^.-
Minnesota delegation, and immediately
upon the arrival at Omaha, "Minne
sota" established headquarters on the
ground floor of the Millard hotel and
all the Minnesota rep rest natives start
ed in for earnest work to secure the
next convention for^our state.
Mr. Bryant was selected as chairman
of the committee, and was assisted by
Fred B. Wright, of Minneapolis, presi
dent of the state Korublican league,
Mr. Charles M. Wilcox, Marshall,
Minn., member of the national Repub
lican league executive committee, and
Maj. John Espy, of St. Paul. Hereto
fore the selection of the next place of
holding the national convention has
beed derided by the convention then in
sc c t3ion, but this plan was changed at
the Omaha convention, and the conven
tion voted to place the matter in the
hands of the executive committee of
the national league, which consists of
fifty-one members, one frem each state.
The reasons advanced by thrs change
was the fact that when a certain city
was selected in advance, the conven
tion would hay? to go there, and the ex
perience has been that transportation
and hotel rates were arbitrary, where
as, if the selection was left with the
executive committee they would have
been in a position to secure satisfactory
lates and ot'r.^r inducements before the
location wa.s settled upon. The fact
that trarsportation rats have net be^n
as low in some cases as they should
have been, has interfered with the at
tendance of delegates. The argument
was also advanced that the national
Republican conventions of the regular
partie.s, were not located by the pre
vious convention, but the place was
selected by the national committee of
the respective partus, and they always
secured a bonus from the city select
Mr. Bryant states that most of the
lf-f gue executive committee were call
ed upon personally, and with very few
exceptions they agreed to vote for St.
Paul, provided we offered the proper
inducements Both Co!. Stone, the
newly elected president of the national
league, and D. H. Stir.c. re-elected sec
retary, pledge themselves to support
the Interests of St. Paul. The commit
tee wa<- also greatly assisted by Messrs.
1.. J. Crawford, D. W. Woodmansee,
ex-presidents of the national league.
With a full attendance of the delegates
allowed from all the states there would
be 193 delegates in the next national
league convention, as these delegates
come from every state in the Union it
is a very important convention to se
cure for the city.
It is probable that the matter will
rot be definitely decided for a year to
come, in the meantime it is proposed to
at once organize a ioint committee
from St. Paul and Minneapolis to make
the preliminary arrangements, and be
in communication with the members of
the national executive committee, so
that when the committee meets or for
,mally act upon the matter, the proposi
tion from St. Paul and Minneapolis
can be presented.

NEWS OF THE RAILROADS
CHICAGO GREAT WESTERN
Fear That It May Cut Freight Rates
Great Northern Express Com
pany and Revenue Stamp Tax— —
"IVestern 'Prank Line Freight
Committee Will Secure Enforce
ment of Laws Railroad Notes.
Tha withdrawal of the Chicago Great
Western from the Western Railway
Weighing association and inspection
bureau and from the Live Stocks asso
ciation is regarded by other members
of the association as preliminary to a
cutting of freight rates by that roa.l,
and there is more or less alarm felt.
It is said that if the roa„ abolishes its
inspection system shippers may make
false vouchers as to the quality and
grade of shipments, and thus have
their goods carried at rates much be
low what they should pay. As the
company will have no representatives
on hand to inspect goods the deception
will pass unnoticed.
"It looks like a deliberate scheme to
cut rates," said a railroad official yes
terday. "It will have an injurious ef
fect because shippers within the as
sociation territory will naturally send
by the road that takes the least pre
cautions to discover frauds. The as
sociation was organized in 1887, and it
has been one of the most beneficial of
the many protective associations. It is
to be regretted that the Chicago Great
Western should withdraw from it."
President Sti-ckney, of the Chicago
Great Western, said he really knew
nothing about the matter, as It restod
with the freight department entirely.
At that department the report of the
company's action was verified, but it
was denied that there was any inten
tion to cut rates. It was explained that
the railroads are protected by laws
from fraudulent shipments and that
each company can easily attend to its
WILL DO AS COrRTS SAY.
C'reat Northern Express Company
"Will Not Pay Tax at Present.
The Great Northern Express company will
not pay the war tax on shipments unless the
courts distinctly declare that express com
panies are to bear the burden of such taxes.
The directors on Friday met and considered
the question, and they agreed that, until the
courts overrulo their construction of the
law, the company will charge the shipper for
the revenue stamp.
In accordance with that decision Vice
I resident l-oc:ner yesterday issued the fol
lowing letter of instruction to the company's
agents throughout the company's system
••Pending rhe decision of the courts on the
question whether the revenue stamps affixed
to express receipts shall be paid for by the
express companies or by their patrons we re
quest shippers to continue furnishing said

MAYOE WANTS RECORDS.
Says All Licenses and Police Ap
pointments - Shtiiilii Be Recorded.
Among the reforms which have been in
augurated by Mayor Kiefer is one regard
ing the keeping of a license record. His honor
finds it necessary that a record of the licenses
of all kinds issued by the city be kept ln
his offlce, and acting on this, the license In
spector has been ordered to make a weekly re
port as to all licenses issued. Books properly
indexed will be added to the collection of
volumes in the office of the chief executive
and when these are completed trje mayor will
have at his command a record, which will
show at a glance to whom and when licenses
have been issued.
Mayor Kiefer denies that the new record of
licenses is being made in order to allow the
transfer of saloon licenses without tho au
thority of tho council. As a matter of fact
the mayor has contended, whenever ihe ques
tion has been brought to his attention, that
as chief executive of the city he had no
power to change or disregard any of the
charter provisions or ordinances of the city.
In addition to the license record a new
book will also be opened in which the names
of applicants and appointments to the police
force will be kept. The buok new used for
this purpose makes no provision for the
registering of the birthplace of the parents
of the applicant for •appointment on the polica
Under the new rule adopted by the mayor
this is of vital importance in making up the
force and consequently a new book, which
wili show thi3 material fact when an apolica
tion has been recorded, hag been ordered.
The keeping of these records will increase the
clerical work in the offlce, but the mayor is
determined to have the information without
regard to the expense or work eutai'.ed.

of flour from different mills. Each of
the 400 mills in the state having a
capacity of 125 barrels per day has
contributed a sack of its flour, butt
there was not sufficient room to dis
play all of them at one time.
The second exhibit is that of the flax
and wool industries of the state. The
showing of the flax industry is in
charge of Mrs. Oscar N. Olberg. of
Albert Lea, Minn. Mrs. Olberg has ac
quired a national reputation in con
nection with the promotion of the flax
industry in the United States. Her
father, a retired farmer and miller, M.
K. Dahl, of Waupun, Wis., took up ths
cultivation of flax as a diversion, and
succeeded in demonstrating the practi
cability of growing flax of the very
finest quality In the northern states. At
his death the closing up of his busi-,
ness affairs brought Mrs. Olberg into
contact with the flax industry, and she
has been identified with it to a con
siderable extent ever since. Her work
has been largely in the line of promo
tion in oonnction with the office of fibre
investigations of the agricultural de
partment of the government. May 15
last, the Minnesota commission asked
Mrs. Olberg to collect material and
make an exhibit of the flax industry
of Minnesota, and the exhibit shown in
the agriculture building was collected
Mrs. Olberg declares that no finer flax
is grown than can be raised in the
states of Wisconsin, Minnesota, North
and South Dakota and lowa. The pro
cess of preparing the land, sowing,
"pulling" and the subsequent treatment
of the crop ls shown by means of
photographs, while the flax itself is
shown in various stages of prepara
tion, from the first stages to the finish
ed product. Numerous samples of
cloth made In the mills in Minnesota
are shown and also several samples
made from the flax grown in Minne
sota which was woven by mills in Mas
sachusetts and in Ireland.
The wool exhibit, made under the
direction of the Minnesota commission,
is in charge of W. J. Burnett, of Min
neapolis. Tbe exhibit is contained in
upright glass cases, the first contain
ing fleeces from a breed of sheep raised
by a prominent sheep raiser of Minne
sota which he calls the North Star.
The wool is what is known to the trade
as long medium, and is of a very fine
quality. Another oase contains a fancy
blanket made of wool from Minnesot
sheep. The last case in the line con
tains a fleece prepared for the market
in the wrong manner, and near it are
photogr.aphs showing the proper man
nPT to fold and roll a fleece in order
to keep it in the best condition.
The Minnesota exhibit is in charge
of C. W. Fields, of Minneapolis, one
of the state commissioners.
FUNDS FOR THE SOLDIERS.

The Ladies' Aid society, auxiliary to
the Sons of Veterans, of the Twin
Cities, have undertaken an entertain
ment for the benefit of the Twelfth and
the Fifteenth regiment?, Minnesota vol

You Like It" will be given by the
Waldorf company, which has produced
the play at many summer entertain
ments this year throughout the North
west. The company is said to be a
cupable one, and it is believed that
the production will prove a strong
The performance will be given in the
glade just north of the main building,
where the natural appropriateness of
the spot will be enhanced by evergreen
trees and flowers. . The prcmonade will
extend from the railroad gates to the
main building. The booths will be in
charge of young women in uniforms,
who Will dispense refreshments, and
two bands, stationed at either term
inus, will discourse music.

yet decided upon, the managers will
likely fix a day during the latter part
of the first week in August.
SOITHAM, MAY GET BAIL.
Has Found Five Persons Willing to
Go His Surety.
It Is probable that J. H. SouthaM will be
walking about the streets next week. He has
now offered Aye separate sureties for the IB.'SOO
bail that is required of him. and, although
Judge Bunn would not accept three sureties
that were offered yesterday, the district at
torney said that the bends would be good
enough for $3,500 on one ef rhe charges, but
that he would require other security for the
rest of the bail.
South all was in court himself. He looked
very well, and jail life id not apparently both
ering him. He was accompanied by Attorney
Nelson. The court examined J. C. and Anna
Ryan and Margaret Fitzgerald, and the coun
ty attorney said he would accept these three
with Col. Liggett and William Plant for the
*8,500 bond, but would require other sureties
for the rest. Southall was obviously disio
pointed. but It was said that he will go into
court Mond&y with sufficient sureties ;;nd lis

IS IT CLASS INSURANCE?
A Chicago Company "Will Be Given
a Chance to Explain.
Insurance Commissioner Dearth yes
terday called upon the Western Mutual
Life Insurance company of Chicago,
to show cUuse .vhy its license to do
business in this state should not be
The insurance commission -±r is in
possession of an affidavit and .-.ther in
formation which charges the West,, m J
Mutual company with violating the in- I
suiance laws of this state. It is claim
ed that the Chicago concern has be*sn
Issuing what is known as "special
agency contracts." These contracts
are issued to agents, with the under
standing that they take out policies in
the company. The poljji •;•=■ i.-- :••■! to
agents under these conditi ms are writ
ten under a special agreement, whereby
the agent receives a ribate "ii all bus
iness done in this state. NsceßSarJly,
only a limited number of these njl'c'ts
are issued, and only a few are in force
fan Minnesota, in the hands of repre- j
sentatives of the company.
Insurance Commissioner Dearth says j
that, under the laws of this state, in- |
surance companies have no authority ,
to issue a policy which favors one j
class of policy holders.
Some time ago the Western Mutual
was in trouble with the state depart
ment concerning the same practice. At j
the time, the officers of the company
patched up an agreement with the
commissioner promising to call in all
such policies, and in the future no poli
cies would be issued to agent 3 under ;
this "exclusive" arrangement.
The insurance company did not, how- j
ever, keen faith with the state depart
ment, and have gone right along issu
ing "special contracts" to agents in this
Insurance Commissioner Dearth stat
ed yesterday that the practice of is- j
suing so-called "special agency con- i
tracts" was very annoying to the com
panies who confined their operations
to writing legitimate insurance, and,
unless a good cause could be shown,
the Western Mutual would be excluded
from doing business in the state.
POLICEMEN ARE ANXIOUS.
"Worried Because They Fear Mayor
Kiefer'» Little A*.
During the present week the expectei
changes in the police department are
to be announced by Mayor Kiefer. Ever
since the mayor took charge of the city
and the police department there has
been all kinds of rumors as to the
"shake-up" in the force. .
As to the heads of the department,
it is understood that both Chief Qosa
and Chief of Detectives Schweitzer will
remain in their positions, at least for
the present. As to the other officers,
detectives and patrolmen, nothing defi
nite has been announced.
Friends of Mayor Kiefer claim that
the changes to be made in the person
nel of the- force will number about for
ty. His honor has frequently stated
that he would mak a some changes
about July 20, but they would not bo
numerous. The question that Is now
agitating both the "ins" and "outs" is
what the mayor means by the changes
being "not numerous."
Those who worked and voted for the
mayor and are not on the pay rolls
look wise and say there will be a gen
eral cleaning out of the force. Tho.se
who are holding positions take the
mayor's argument that the members
of the force are all Republicans, or sup
posed to be. and try to make them
selves believe there will be no changes.
One thing is certain, and that ls. If
removals are to lie made on the plan
figured out by Jake Stadtfield and the
mayor on the nationality question,
there will be trouble in the council, and
the result may be that the action of
the mayor will not be concurred in.
Several of the members of the coun
cil have expiveeed themselves as op
posed to removals from the force on the
ground of nationality, and say they will
not stand for the removing of an officer
simply because his parents were born
ln Ireland, to make room for a German
or a Swede who has some political pull.
It Is claimed by several of the coun
cilmen recently elected that a sufficient
number of votes have been secured to
carry through the changes proposed by
the mayor, and for this reason those
who object "cut no Ice" except to lose
standing with the chief executive.
MUSIC~AT COMO PARK.
Two Concert* Today and One Each
!•" v e ii In K DuriiiK the Week.
There will be a fine concert at Como park
this afternoon and also one this evening and
on each evening of the week. New selections
will be offer. il. It Is planned . to have an
other pyrotechnic display on Wednesday
which will be ln the nature of a naval bat*
tie, somewhat similar to that of the week
There will be a Strauss evening next Friday
and It would seem beyond question that the
I Strauss evening would prove quite as attrac
tive as the Wagner cne. Strauss music is
bright and full of sweetness and always pop
ular. As his grtat selections are ail short, a
I great many numbers will be Included on,
! the programme. It is now intended to ma!«)
I all the programme Strauss music for this
* evening. On the other evenings of the v*t< '&
the numbers will be varied.
The completion of the new sounding board
I will add much to the soft work of the or
i chestra. The railway company has also been
erecting some new lights an 1 making other
! improvements about the station.
