"The hardware combine is practically
an established fact," said a large Twin ,
City jobber yesterday afternoon to The
Globe. The promoters have options on
all the large wholesale hardware stores
in Chicago, St. Louis, Milwaukee, De
troit, Kansas City, Omaha, Dubuque, St.
Paul and Minneapolis.
"They have hied their articles of in
corporation, and arc now prepared to so
ahead and consummate their plans. i
There is no question about the project
being launched and that in the very near
future." ; ■•-,■ ■":-..• ■ ■ '
One of the leading Twin City jobbers
•was asked if he would consider a
proposition to go into such a scheme. He |
said: "Of course we would. We think I
the idea a good one." Then do we under
stand that you are in favor of trusts?
was asked. "Why, no, not exactly; this,
you understand, is not a trust;, it is
simply a business proposition, and one
that should appeal to any business man.
You must understand that combinations
and consolidations are possible now, that
could not be considered even as a remote
probability ten years ago; at this time
everything seems to favor closer working
relations of allied interests, in order to
be successful and we look upon trie
scheme as one that may prove of great
When asked how long this matter had
been under consideration, the jobber
said:' "About two months ago a repre.
sentative of the promoters, a Mr. Jonn
Bindley, formerly president of». the Na
tional Association of Wholesale Hard
ware Jobbers, came to the Twin Cities,
looked over the field, and before he left
had conditional options on three of the
largest: establishments in the Twin
Nothing has been said from that time
until the present, and it is not definitely
known, whether the proposition mafJe
two months ago will be accepted by the
promoters at this time or not, but it is
fair to presume that if such a combine
is launched, that the Twin Cities are a
center which must be reckoned with, and
now that the articles of incorporation
have been filed, the so-called trust is
very nearly sure of the houses which
It will have under it control and
from now on it will simply be a matter
of arranging the working details, and
getting everything in running order foi
the new concern to take hold, and direct
the movements of the various houses
which it will control.
The plan is to have a general office,
presumably in Chicago, and from there
the different branches will be operated.
It is also understood that the present
firm names of the different houses which
■will come under their control will be be
retained, so that apparently the mer
chants will do business with the same
firm that they have always dealt with.
The benefits which will result from
such a combination will be the cutting
down of an enormous expense of doing
business., For example, the three largest ;
houses In the Twin Cities employ about
150 traveling men. They all practically
cover the same territory, and under the
rew arrangement one man could take
the place of three, thereby reducing the
cost of doing business nearly one-half.
It also would do away with price-cutting
in order to secure business. This same
rule would apply to other cities that in
vade the same territory.
-It is understood that the president of
the National Association of Wholesale
Hardware Dealers, who is a member of
a large St. Paul firm, is one of the chief
promoters of the scheme, and is very
anxious for its consummation.. It is un
derstood that any who wish may sell
their business outright to the new or
ganization, but in doing so they bind
themselves not to again engage In the
■wholesale hardware business; if they do
not sell out, they can remain as a stock
holder in the new organization, which,
no doubt, would prove more satisfac
The combination of the hardware inter
ests in the West is one easy of accom
plishment, as there are comparatively
few of them to reckon with, and pros
pects of holding them together are more
inviting than in any other line of job
bins business. A strange thing about

HOT SHOT FROM AMES.
Ministers Ml«*«tnte Facts—After the j
Coin I-ilie Oilier Folks.
"I am credibly informed,'' said Mayor
Ames yesterday, upon his return from -a
hunting expedition in the northern . part
of the state, that while I was shooting
deer In Itasca county, some of oar wor
thy ministers have had another., spasm
over the saloon question. That •is ; too
bad, but I don't suppose :it can be help

must expect to have periodical-spasms. oi 1
fanaticism and hypocrisy." . •,....
'"I understand that during my ab
sence a report was circulated to the ef
fect that I had offered ; Cole Younger
a captaincy on the police force. ; The re
port was absolutely untrue. " What I did
say to Cole •: the other day was, - that if
he couldn't find anytning else to do, I
would give him a job as turnkey in one, j
of the police stations. I never offered
him a captaincy or any other office."
Referring agan to the ministers who
have recently agitated the subject : of ,
night closing of saloons, the mayor said:
"Anyone who understands these minis
ters who are raising a hue and cry can
readily see their motives. They are not
preaching for their, health, any more
than lawyers or doctors are practicing
for their health, or a merchant 1 selling
goods for his health; they are simply
out for the coin like other folks. .
"Some of them rely on sensationalism
to bring them into prominence, and
that's why they resort to these tactics,
just to get themselves before the pub

"I am sorry to say that occasionally
there arises a clergyman who doesn't
scruple to misstate the facts, if such mis
statement serves to bolster "up his con :
tention. Only a week ago Sunday . a
Minneapolis clergyman openly asserted
from the pulpit that a mass of saloons
in the city were open, all night long.
Now I brand that statement as utterly
false, as every man who knows any
thng about the customs of saloons m
this city can testify. - The great mass or.
saloons cannot be found open after 1
"What overthrew Tammany in New
York city? The law- and order, league
of tight and strict administration? . Not
a bit of it. Instead it was the assur
ance of the anti-Tammany crowd, that
if it was victorious it would give the
city a wide-open administration, only it
i would curtail the stealing done under the
Tammany rule and taxes would be re
duced. • That's all. The people don t
want a city shut up as tight as a drum, ;
but every once in a while we have to
endure these spasms of fanaticism.

INTRODUCE A NEW COURSE.
Board of Education to Consider a
The Minneapolis high school will be
asked to introduce a commercial course
in their curriculum next year, and it is
not at all unlikely but what the request
will be granted. Such a . plan has been
successfully tried in Chicago, and there
is every reason to believe that it would
meet with approbation here. -
For several years past the . number
of students who take the classical course
has been growing less, and . the same
is true of all the high schools through
out the country; students instead of tak
ing this course usually go to the com
mercial colleges and finish their studies
at that institution. ..•■, w, .
While the board do not intend to
abolish the classical course, it is un
derstood that they will endeavor to in
stitute a new course of study such as
is given in commercial colleges. ■;. .
Before anything is recommended, how
ever, they intend to secure a detailed re
port of the work in Chicago, from the
superintendent of schools, and find out
what has been their success.
<<SAFHO" HER DSWXFALL.
A Young: Minneapolis Girl Arrested
in Chicago for Stealing".
Mabel Gross, a young Minneapolis
woman, was arrested in Chicago a few
days ago, charged with having stolen
a valuable gown from a department
store there. '.'■-' •
The play "Sapho," her relatives claim,
was responsible for turning her head
and causing her downfall. She left
home some time ago and went to Chi
cago, where she registered at the Great
Northern hotel Nov. 10, and a few days
later she reported that a sacque valued
at $300 had been stolen from her room.
The hotel people became suspicious, and
detectives watched her. A valuable tailor
made gown had been found in her room,
and it was later learned that she had
walked '. out of the store with it :' while
it was being fitted. This resulted in her
ejectment from the hotel and her subse

Illinois Central Circular.
A circular has been Issued by E. H.
Harriman & Co., calling attention to the
present condition of and the prospective
outlook for the Illinois Central road.
This circular says:
"The progressive policy in the manage
ment of this road may be clearly traced
as far back as ISS7. Realizing that in
successful competition service to the pub
lic counted as much as low rates, it has
not hesitated to make improvements and
extensions in advance of actual require
ments, and results have abundantly justi
fied the wisdom of this course. The large
increase in traffic has taxed the road to
its fullest capacity, and to handle this
more economically the equipment is to be
largely increased and the road double
"The company has the most direct
route from Chicago to New Orleans, its
roadway following- the course of Missis
sippi river through a flat and easy coun
try. It serves the great wheat, corn and
cattle districts of the Middle states, as
well as the cotton and lumber districts of
the South. At New Orleans It has ex
traordinary facilities for the trans
shipment of freight to other ports, and
will benefit largely by any increase in
trade to Central and South America.
"The growth in net profits from $2 778,531
in '1897 to $6,967,660 in 1901 is due only in
a small degree to increased mileage; the
latter increased 34.6 per cent, while net
profits increased over 150 per"cent, and
this is the more notable when attent on
is directed to the fact that during the
same period the amount spent annually
for maintenance increased from $2,013 to
52,032 a road mile. The average in 1900
was $2,442, while the average on all roads
in the United States was only $2,038.
"Since 1878 stockholders have each year
received dividends of at least 5 per cent
per annum, and as high as 8 per cent,
the present rate being 6 per cent."

NEW YORK, Nov. 18.-At the annual
meeting of the stockholders of the Buf
falo, Rochester & Pittsburg Railway
company today the recommendation of
the directors that the. interest of $1,000,-
COO of debenture bonds be reduced from
5 to 4 per cent, was accepted. The con
dition that they be made convertible into
common stock of the company at par
was imposed. The proposal that the bal
ance of $2,000,000 debenture, bonds au
thorized in 1897 be made convertible and
redeemaole on the same terms was also
accepted, as was the recommendation
that the common capital stock of fhe
company be increased $3,000,000. The Old

since which time Miss Gross had lived
with her sister at 1117 Third street
northeast. It is claimed by her brother
in-law that she had been "stage struck"
for a long time. She haunted the local
hcr.ses and became acquainted with
many actors, and often expressed a de
sire to go on the stage, but never re
ceived an opportunity. When "Sapho"
was presented here last summer she be
came acquainted with one of the leadr
Ing men, who promised to assist her. The
company later left for Detroit, and the
actor whom she met, left with them,
and she never heard anything more
This was a great disappointment, and
now that, her desire for the stage was
thoroughly aroused, the glare of the
footlights seemed to fascinate her more
and more, and a week ago she decided
to go to Chicago in the hope of securing
an engagement. The only thing that
has been heard of her since she left was
the notice chronicling her arrest.
Her brother-in-law says that he will
do nothing to help her, as he does not
believe she entertains any practical ideas
of life. Miss Gross was for about a
year and a half operator at the North
western Telephone exchange.

Receiver W. S. Dwinnell, of the Minne

company, has begun legal proceedings in
order to discover what has become of
about 4100,000 of assets supposedly in the
pessession of the directorate of the com
pany at the time it was placed in his
The assets in question consisted of
notes given by certain parties and of col
lateral given to secure the notes. Alto
gether they formed what was known as
the guaranty fund of the company, and
when advertised as such formed the basis
upon which much business was secured.
Mr. Dwinnell yesterday began action
to force the directors of the defunct
company to disclose the present where
abouts of the notes and collateral in
question. The proceedings were had be
fore Judge Simpson, and resulted last
evening only in a statement from the di
rectors and officers present that the as
sets had been given back to the parties
advancing them before the concern was
placed in the hands of the receiver.
Mr. Dwinnell made the point that such
a proceeding would at least be in doubt
ful taste, inasmuch as such a fund would
never be more necessary than when the
company was upon the point of failure.
No reply was attempted to this criticism.
Mr. Dwinnell was made receiver of
the insurance company March 5 last, as
the result of an action brought against
it by the Germania bank, of this city.
The directors yesterday claimed that
they had divided the guaranty fund and
returned it to the individuals in Decem
