a gala day it was. There are about
600 delegates present at this annual
The delegates began to arrive early
Thursday evening and delegations con
tinued to arrive all day yesterday. They
were heartily welcomed, and the lead
ers said that never before in the his
tory of the association had they been
given such excellent headquarters and
concert buildings as they have in St.
The forenoon was spent in perfecting
arrangements for the reception of the
delegates and the concert last evening.
At noon yesterday luncheon was served
at Mozart hall for the delegates, and
they were given an opportunity to meet
their officers and fellow members of the:
At 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon tha
delegates assembled at the People's
church and listened to the formal ad
drosses of welcome. A storm of ap
plause greeted Gov. Lind when he was
introduced by President Floan,- of tha
association. Gov. Lind made v brief
speech of welcome. Mayor Smith wa.s
next introduced and delivered to them
the keys of the Capital City in a few
well spoken remarks.
Consur Hobe, npeaklng Norwegian,
touched upon the great amount cf work
that had been connected with the ar
rangements for the sangerfest, and be
spoke a well merited success for the
undertaking. Much was dua, he said, to
the energetic and active committee and
its secretary and manager, Harry
Randall. He dwelt upon the ennobling
effect of music and song, and in closing
expressed the hope that the purpose of
the festival, that of increasing ihe love
of music and facilities for its expansion,
might be accomplished to the fullest ex

LAST EVENING'S CONCERT.
Hundreds of Voices Blended in
A raised platform, whose highest tier
of seats reached half way to the roof and
was met there with banners of every des
cription, flanked on one side by the flags
of Norway and Sweden and on the other
by the Stars and Stripes; a platform, too,
that was crowded with clear-voiced sing
era, white-capped and beaming, such was
the inspiring sight that greeted the large
audience assembled last evening at the
People's church to enjoy the opening con
cert of the Northwestern Scandinavian
Singers' association. But even mure in
spiring than the appearance "of that cho
rus was the harmony that swelled from
the throats of its singers, tremendous in
its strength, wonderful In its fine shad
ings, marvellously well balanced and al
ways sustained. Prof. John Dahle was a
competent guiding spirit for the wealth of
tone he controlled, and the audiance in its
Insistent applause paid him a fine tribute.
Nineteen different choruses were com
prised in the large chorus, and the har
mony produced was therefore all the
The opening number of the chorus was
the lofty, "O Gud, som styrer Folkons
Oaten," by "Wennerberg; later two num
bers were sung, "Peasant Wedding
March" and "Saeterjentens Sondag," by
Ole Bull. A Grieg number, "Sigurd Jor
salfar," closed the work of the chorus in
the first part of the programme. This
number also served to introduce to the
audience Carl Erickson, who is the pos
sessor of a baritone of unusually wide
range and sympathetic quality. In its
upper tones Mr. Erlckson's voice Is a ly
ric tenor of unusual sweetness, while the
chest tones have that sonorous quality to
be found in the best baritones. This
soloist was also heard in "Saeterjentens
Sondag," by Bull, where he carried the
solo parts; and in Grieg's spirited
"Landkjending," sung by chorus, with
Mr. Erickson as soloist.
A group of songs by some of the small
er choruses called forth an ovation from
the audience. These songs were the folk
songs of Norway and Sweden and were
beautifully rendered. "Varden," of Min
neapolis, with Prof. Oulie as director,
sang Kucken's "Ved Neckar, Ved Rhin;"
"Nbrmanna," of Duluth, Prof. Flaaten a3
director, sang Seimer's "Norge. Norge;"
the ' Fram," of St. Paul. John Dahle di
rector, sang "Til Sverige," and the "Var
den" and •'Viking," of Minneapolis, and
"Normaendenes," of St. Paul, Prof Oulle
director. «ang a composition of the lat
ter's, "Samles Skal Norge."
Mrs. J. Lohrbauer, mezzo soprano, sang
two numbers In very dainty and finished
fashion—one of Grieg'?., the "Fra Monte
Pincio," and "Irmelin Rose," Ole Olson.
An artist of most unusual talent pres
ent last evening was the 'cellist, Ga^ton
Porch. His numbers were a cradle
wng of Gofard's; "Tre Glcrni," Pergo
lose: "Widniung," by Popper, and two ex
quisite little numbers, songs by Kjerulf,
arranged for 'cello and orchestra. They
were played with noticeable refinement
A St. Paul violinist was accorded a.
gratifying reception last evening. Mr.
O!af Hals, who Js no stranger to loevi
audiences, played Grieg's sonata in O
minor Copus 13), and gave it a broad ard
sympathetic reading. Mr. Hals' technical"
ha* always be*?r: noticeably good, but his
work heretofore has been marred by a
cold and analytical interpretation. Last
evening, however, he convinced his audi
ence that h« posaesjajwi \-er,ye and poetry
as well as technique, p.nd his number was
warmly applauded. Danz's orchestra a<^
cempanted the chorus smoothly, and its
two independent numbers were f.nolv
giver. They were "Norsk Kunstner Car,
nival" and "Dcr Orleaiibka JungCruen "
If there was a fault to be found with
the programme it was its extreme length
It was afler 11 o'clock when the concert
was over, and this necessitated many who
lived at a distance leaving before it was

GRRAT CIRCUS AT MINNEAPOLIS
YESTERDAY COl LDN'T MEET
ITS TENT PROVED TOO SMALL
Gave a Great Exhibition In Merit
and Extent, Surpassing Any
thing: Before in the
A dual combination of what is best and
biggest in tented institutions was pre
sented to nearly 15,000 people at the aft
ernoon performance given by the Fore
paugn-Sells Brothers' circus at Minne
apolis yeste:day. The parade, which
traversed the principal streets down town
yesterday morning, combined with ideal
circus weater, was sufficient earnest of
that part of the show for which an ad
mission fee is charged, and from 12
o'clock until after the performance be
gan at 2, the First avenue cars were
crowded with Minneapolis people bent on
supplementing the celebration of the
Fourth with another, and a circus holi
day. Along Twenty-fifth street, be
tween Nicollet and Blaisdell avenues, the
usual array of circus hucksters strove
mightily from the time the big tents went
up. The side shows, common to every
big and little circus, also began the har
Although several days of rain *n lowa
and Southern Minnesota had taken much
of the whiteness out of the big canvases
there was nothing lacking in the fine fin
ish exhibited by the rolling and equine
stock of the show. Of the thirty-eight
animal dens none was allowed to thow
anything of the wear and tear to which
circus property is constantly subjected.
Fre^h paint or" the brightest colors and
fic-sh gold leaf were conspicuously pres
ent. The 300 or more horses, whose daily
ta.sk it is to furnish the backbone, ma
terially and artistically, of the modern
circus, were also in fine condition, i.nd
the appearance of the parade was bet
tered by the livery of the drivers and
the fine trappings of the horses.
With the promptness characteristic of
circus machinery the afternoon perform
j ance began at 2 o'clock with the usual
■ grand entree. Following this generai in-
I troduction the center of the immense
! canvas was given over to the hundreds
!of feats and exhibitions which make
j practice for the oculists. There were
[ presented dozens of expert riders, groups
and families of aerialists, acrobatic
teams, trained horses, elephants, seals
and other animals, clown eccentrics, and
the other things without which the worid
breaking monster shows would r^i be.
In a programme which culls upon the
talent of so many performers any dis
tinction may be invidious, but probably
the strongest feature of the acrobatic
performance was the appearance of the
Potter family, four in number, who have
just return 3d from a two years' tour of
England with the Barnum show, and who
make use of the same aerial rigging and
accomp.ish the same daring feats that
they did in Madison Square Garden dur
ing the opening of the present clrcu3 sea
son with the Forepaugh-^ells show. In
intricacy, fearlessness and gracefulness
their act has seldom been excelled. Wil
liam Howe, in his wonderful, iong, doublc
somersauit leaps is also worthy of men
tion. This young athlete generally has
a leg or two on the verge of breaking, but
he "works" just the same. One of the
best evidences of the inclination of the
circus performance toward the artistic
was given by the Jacksons In statuesque
posing- In ground tumbling the six Mil
lettes have an act which shows, the high
est type of acrobatic development.
Of the riders, Misses Dockrill, Meers,
Emma Stickney, Josie Ashton, Marietta
Correa and several others, deserve the
extended mention which is net always
possible with limited space. The gentle
men riders are able beyond the usual
ability of circus riders, and all the riding
is of the best class. A prominent feature
c-f the performance is the famous Wood
ward trained seals, who have been taught
tricks which were formerly thought to
be within the scope of only the most in
telligent animals. The Forepaugh show
without the Forepaugh elephant school
would hardly be Itself, and the appear
ance of the dancing elephants under Wil
liam Chambers was a welcome feature.
Without especial mention of the band,
under the direction of Al Merrlch, injus
tice would be done a very hard working
and capable department. During the
morning parade the music was of a good,
and, what was more to the point as far
as the public was concerned, of frequent
order. Preceding the afternoon per
formance the concert band rendered the
overture from "William Tell" and kindred
selections with good effect and the pro
gramme music was a departure from the
old-time real "brass band." An equally
fine programme is promised for this even
The entire show Is strictly up to date
and out to please.
The big show will give an afternoon
and evening performance in St. Paul to
day on Aurora avenue, between St. Al
b!ns and Dale.
Ths line of parade will be from the
tent grounds to Marshall, down to Nel
son, to Summit, to Sixth, down to
Broadway, up Seventh to Cedar, from
there up Univeartty to the tent grounds.
MANY FIEES IN JUNE.
Fires Numbered 100 for tie Month,
I.osxes Being $!»4,000.
Fire Chief Cook reports that the small
ness of the record of fires for the Fourth
was unprecedented, the department not
having a single fire except from light
ning. The record for the month of June
was an even 100 fires, the losses amount
ing to $94,000, and including those of We
mott, Howard & Co., St. Paul Gas Light
company, Collins & Co., Gregg & Co.,
and Farwell, Ozmun, Kirk & Co.
On the average there are from sixty to
sevpnty fires per month during the year,
while eighteen years ago an average of
twenty-five to thirty fires per month was
regarded as very large. But there were
many more total losses at that time than
now. It is a phrase among the insur
ance men of this city that the insurance
companies make money.
Must Lay Stone Walks.
The ordinance introduced in the assem
bly by Mr. Dix, at Thursday's meeting
prohibiting the laying of wooden side
walks on cerlain streets in the Sixth
ward, has received the signature of the
mayor, and these streets, for the dis
tances named, are added to the cement
or stone sidewalk district.

MAKES LONG SEABCH FOB IT
Finds YomiK Man Who Has a Sim
ilar One—Threaten* Him With
Arrest, and Finds He Is a
Friend of Her Host.
Madge Thompson, an actress, the guest
of St. Paul people at Cottagewood, M!n
netonka, had a severe scare yesterday
morning in front of the Ryan hotel. In
this city. She had just alighted from an
interurban car when she discovered sha
had left her reticule, containing some
53,000 worth of jewelry, in the car. She
.started to return for her property when
Sihe noticed a young gentleman carrying
what she believed was her reticule. Ho
had opened it and was examining the
contents. The excited young woman at
once advanced on the man, who was w^ll
dressed and appeared to be a gentle
man, claiming her property. The mm
merely shut the clasp of the bag, stared at
Miss Thompson insolently, and informed
her that she was mistaken. When she
insisted, that the bag was hers he threat
ened to call a policeman. Misa Thomp
son brought matters to a head by call
ing the policeman herself, the man stand
ins perfectly still, and appearing much
annoyed at such pertinacity on the part
of the actress.
The policeman said that all he could do
was to take both parties to the police
htatlon, but Miss Thompson would not
consent to this. She insisted that the
officer have the bag opened right on the
spot, to see what it contained. She de
clared that it contained her diamonds,
while the man insisted that ft contained
only papers which concerned him alone.
After some rather heated conversation
the police officer decided to place the man
under arrest., whfreupon h? offered to ex
hibit the contents of the bag.
The contents proved to be deeds to cer
tain realty on Dayton's b'.uff, in this
At this time Miss Thompson told the po
liceman her name and profession, as
sured him that the bag had origina'ly
contained her diamonds, that the man
had removed them and substituted the
papers, and begged the officer to place
him under arrest.
When the young woman mentioned her
name the man started and appeared much
surprised. He informed her that his
name was Edwards, that he knew her
friends at Minnetonka very well, and that
in fact, he was to be their guest over
Sunday, having been invited to meet
her. He further assured her that there
were scores of bags like the one In his
possession, and that she had better ac
cept his assistance in finding the dia
Nothing has been heard of the dia
monds. Mr. Edwards then went to the
police station, reported the loss of the
jewels and had notification sent to all
pawnbrokers. At noon the lost property
department of'fhe company was agsin
telephoned, and the reply received put
Miss Thompson in a radiant gojd hu
mor. The little bag with the diamonds
had been turned in by the conductor.
When Miss Thompson called to claim her
property, in company with Mr. Edwards
it was found that the two bags were so
precisely alike tjj.at it was impossible to
tell them apart! There have been all
sorts of apologies and explanations on
tap since these. two young people first
met in St. Paul.
IDASILY VAStfcUISHED BY THE VIS
Glenview won the golf match with tha
Minikahda club yesterday by 35 up. The
visiting team outcla?sed the Minneapolis
players in every part of the game, and
but two of the local men won their
matches. These two were C. T. Jaffray,
who defeated W. Holabird Jr. by 2 up!
and C. F. Doaver, who won his match
from G. A. Thorne by 1 up. The Glen
view team is composed of the strongest
combination of golfers that has ever play
ed in the Twin Cities.
When the time arrived to tee off every
thing was favorable to good golf. The
afternoon was cool and pleasant. The
wind, although, high, was not strong
enough to interfere with the game, and
the links wero, in, better condition than
at any time this season. The course had
just been carefully rolled, and the fair
green was as -smooth and level as it is
possible to get it. What was most im
portant every member of the two teams
Celt like playing golf, and not like pot
tering around the .links. The wind cost
perhaps three strolces on the round, but
Before the first nine holes hald been
half covered it was easy to se^ that the
visiting team had.the contest in its own
hands. The local men played hard and
carefully, but the Chicagoans showed a
greater familiarity with the game. They
never grew careless or attempted to
press, and their shdrt game was stronger
by far than that portion of the Minne
apolis men's play. The sand bunkers,
which had been expected to bother them,
did not effect their game to any appreci
able extent. They went straight ahead
and made the strokes with as much con
fidence as if they had been playing over
the water hazards at Golf, 111. It was
noticeable that when a Glenview player
was in doubt as to the exact location of
a hole he would go ahead and find out
just where the flag was before playing
the next stroke, and not trust to direc
tion given by a caddie or a bystander.
At the conclusion of the first round
three of the Minneapolis players had a
hole apiece to their credit, while the vis
itors had 25 piled up on their side of tha
The semi-finals in the tournament for
the trophy presented by J. B. Hudson
were played at Bryn Mawr yesterday aft
ernoon. G. C. Schroyer defeated F. W.
Guilbert by three up and two to play, and
R. Alger defeated W\ M. Sawyer, who
won his match from Mr. Huntington
earlier in the day, by one up.
Mr. Schroyer outplayed Mr. Guilbert all
the way through the contest yesterday
afternoon. He drove a longer and a more
direct ball, and his short approaches were
played in better form. The links were
not in particularly good condition, as the
grass was long and the putting greens
slow, and these things had a tendency to
handicap the players to a certain extent.
The iinals between, Mr. Schroyer and Mr.
Sawyer will be decided this afternoon.

HEALTH BOARD TO ASK FOR A
WOTTLD COST ABOUT $20,000
City Physician Anker Tells What
Sort of a Strut-tare
Would Meet His
The city health department will ask
that provision be made in the budget for
a special Isolation hospital for contagious
diseases. The need of such a facility is
urged, and City Physician Anker has ar
guments and plans to present to th? coun
cil when the matter cornea up. Speaking
of the proposed facility, Dr. Anker said
to the Globe yesterday:
A contagious ward would be provided
for cases of contagious diseases exclusive
ly, such as scarlet fever, smallpox, chick
enpox, diphtheria, erysipelas, etc., and in
order to care for each patient separately
a building under one roof should have
five or six compartments, or sections,
each having a half-dozen rooms. It
would be necessary to have an operating
room for the diphtheria cases which re
quire surgical treatment, and there sh;uld
be a sleeping room provided for the
nurses, and a small serving room in each
section. The system of ventilation should
be the very bet>t, whether by fans or
I do not know of a building more diffi
cult to locate, but it should be on grounds
near the hospital. Its proximity within
twenty or thirty feet would not be a
menace, as the danger is only when
coming in immediate contact. We have
had a building containing- children near
the pest house, but there has been nu
sufferings, no danger.
My idea for a buiiding for this pur
pose would be cne In the middle of a
teii-aere lot, enclosed with a big fenc^.
\\ hat we complain of now is the dilap
idation ar.d inconvenience of the present
one, and it could not be remodeled to
answer the needs. It would pay the
city to put up a flr.st-class building and
the revenue derived from such an insti
tution would be considerable. An exceed
ingly plain building would serve havln"
internally Just as little woodwork as pos
sible, with floors cemented and walls of
soapstone, or something of that kind so
they could be floored and washed out
Oiten if necessary.
Such a building could not be construct
ed for less than $20,000, and It would be
foolish to consider one for less—a sub
stantial bui;ding and without attempt at
ornament—severely plain in and out. The
convent floors and cement walks could be
made very attractive.
There Is no question about the urgency
of, the demand. If the pubUc could in
spect the present bMiir.in? and see its con
dition there would be no doubt as to
public sentiment for a new building The
boaru of control and myself have cai
cimined, painted, scrubbed and rubbed it
down, and I think the United States gov
ernment has not made as good a show
as W« have made in this department
When we get the money appropriated
we will employ an architect and look
over plans for a building, and the monly
win be spent judiciously.

"The Carnegie company for one Is In
