HAS GROWN GREATLY
FIFTIETH ANNIVERSARY OF THE
FOrNDING OF CENTRA!. PRES
FROM A SMALL BEGINNING
It Is Norv on Firm Uasis and Doin^
Good Work — Addresses by
Pastor and Mem
The fiftieth anniversary of the founding
of the Central Presbyterian church was
celebrated last night with elaborate cer
emonies. Several of the older members
of the congregation took part in the pro
gramme, and recalled the times when the
prosperous church was but a struggling
little socity in a pioneer town. Dr. Mel
drum, pastor of the church, read a pa
per prepared by T. D. Simontin,
who is the oldest member of the church.
It took up the early history of the church
from the time of its organization until
the present day. The following is an
"The church had its real beginning In
the coming to St. Paul of Dr. John G.
Ryaldaffer. This was in the fall of 1851.
At that time the territory of Minnesota
had but 7,000 people within her borders,
and the city of St. Paul was but a town
of 1,500. There was a Presbyterian church
In the town, but it was of the 'Old
School.' Some of the people felt there
was need for another society. Accord
ingly shortly after Mr. Ryaldaffer ar
rived the Central church was organized
with but seven members. There was no
church building, but the society met in
different places in the city. Some of its
meetings were held In the court house,
some in the supreme court room o-f the
capitoi, and finally the Baptist church
on Baptist hill. The meetings in the
church were held under conditions that
no children were t<? be sprinkled in the
In ISSI Hie new church building was
dedicated. It was built on the site now
occupied by the church, the ground being
given by Louis Robert, one of the early
pioneers of the city. This building was
occuped until the present structure was
erected a few years ago.
Mr. B. H. J?chriber, superintendent of
the Sunday school, spoke upon the mission
of the Central church. He pointed out
the different classes of work which tha
church is able to do because of its favor
able location. In speaking of the work
which lies before the church, Mr. Sehri
ber said that the time is almost at hand
when a manual training department must
be added. He thinks thera is a great
need of work of this class, and that it
"Will add to the Influence and power of
the church. Addresses were delivered
by Robert P. Lewis, Prof. Thomas Shaw
and Dr. Meldrum. The celebration will
be completed with a social in the church
parlors this evening.
MUD ON ALL SIDES

Mud, the consistency of which was only

The sky was fair and the warmth un
usual for February, but these inviting
features were lost in the contemplation

For the past three days the crossings
and streets have been covered with more
than their usual covering of nasty, sticky
mud, and in consequence complaint is
general. Wihere the street cars make fre

the vicinity of the Rvan hotel, where the
interurban cars stop, the mud yesterday
was slightly relieved with the aid of a
shovel and broom in the hands of a
street car employe, but the relief was not
very lasting. Complaints are going up
that the engineering- department seems

SLATE FOR PAVING
E. W. FEET SAYS WHEN CRUSHED
IT MAKES AN IDEAL MA
MUCH USED IN THE EAST
experiments Have Convinced Chair
man' of Good Roads Committee
of Commercial Bodies! That
It Should Be I seel.
E. W. Peet, chairman of the committee
on good roads of the consolidated com
mittee of the commercial bodies of St.
Paul, is one of the ardent supporters of
the movement for the improvement of
the roadways of the state. He has thor
oughly investigated the different kinds
of paving- that can be used in the state
and has done this with a view to ob
taining data as to cost, supply and dura
He expresses himself as being well sat
isfled with some of these experiments,
especially those with crushed slate which
has proven satisfactory in Pennsylvania
and certain parts of Europe. Of the suit'
ability of using slate for paving purposes,
Mr. Peet says:
"J. have recently thoroughly invests
gated a new material, crushed slate, for
making a good pavement in cities and vil
lages, and for coating country roads, par
ticularly in thickly settled portions. Al
though new to this section of the country,
crushed slate as a pavement and a ma
terial for good roads is not an experiment.
It is and has been used extensively in
Europe, where there are the best roads
in the world, and in Eastern Pennsyl
vania, where the slate is abundant. It
has been used in making roads which are
noted for their good Qualities. It makes a
smooth, elastic roadway and is one ot
the cheapest and best materials that can
be secured. That it is not more generally
used is due, no doubt, to the fact that
slate quarries are not found in all parts
of the country.
"Minnesota has an inexhaustible sup.
ply. At Caxleton, in Carleton county,
there are immense slate quarries and
there is now completed and in operation
a large mill or manufactory run by water
power, the St. Louis river, for crushing
and grinding the material as well as for
making the best quality of brick, which
is unexcelled for paving as well as for
"The material can be furnished at a
very low price and, as favorable arrange
ments can be made with the railroads
for transporting it, and as it costs very
little to lay it, it is a very economical
pavement. The cost of constructing road
ways or pavements of this material, in
cluding cost of transportation and ex
pense of laying is less than half of that
of macadam. The great economy in the
use of this material arises from the fact
that it can be laid upon dirt wIHTout any
foundation of stone. The surface of the
street or road is smoothed and rounded
and from two to five inches of this
crushed slate spread upon the dirt and
covered with a coating of powdered slate
and rolled, or where there is a good deal
of travel, rolling is not necessary. It
packs and binds, does not crack, does
not cut through and forms a smooth,
hard surface, impervious to water, does
not wash out and can be easily kept
in repair. It never is muddy and requires
no more sprinkling or care to prevent it*
being dusty than macadam or asphalt.
"It is particularly well adapted to resi
dence streets in large cities and to all
the streets of the smaller cities and vil
lages. A coating of this material two
or three inches thick on a country road
will make a fine, smooth, hard roadway
that is unexcelled by any other, as shown
by the actual experiences in Europe and
in Pennsylvania, and in Carleton and Co
quet, and the roadways in that vicinity,
where it has been used for some time,
gives entire satisfaction.
"A small section of pavement of this
new material has been constructed in
St. Paul and in Minneapolis on residence
streets and on business streets and It
is proving eminently satisfactory. ' This
material is certainly worthy of investlga.

HINTS FROM GREAT LIFE
CHAPLAIN GROVES PREACHES ON
PERSONALITY OF WASHINGTON.
Memorial services, in the form of a
patriotic programme, were held last night
in the Park Avenue Congregational
church, under the auspices of the choral
association. Chaplain Leslie R. Groves,
of the Fourteenth United States infantry,
presided over the meeting, in the ab
sence of the pastor, who wa; anaM^ to
■attend on account of illness. Chaplain
Groves delivered a short address on the
"Life of Washington." His address was
in part as follows:
"Patriotism in this country is a sub
ject from which God is not excluded,
but intimately included, and for this •«ea
sori it is appropriate that lessons of pa
triotism should be taught in the church.
"From the life of Washington there are
many lessons to be learned, but the one
that stands out most strongly is that of
disinterested patriotism, for Washington
was disinterested in all his actions. He
was no practical politician, serving his
country only in so far as his services
tended to benefit himself, but as the
servant of the people. Among ali the
great names of this country, I think
with but one exception there is
to be said which in a measure lessens
the greatness, but not so with Washing^
ton, and his true greatness has brought
to his name honor and devotion exceed
ing all others.
"The question arises, To what extent
may patriotism develop without embrac
ing Christianity? Experience has taught
us that morality without religion soon
fades, and finally disappears, and this is
the great danger America has to contend
with today. We are each year becoming
a little more lax, and losing the firm
grip that our ancestors so vacom,promis
ingly held in earlier days. Little by lit
tle we exact more of others on Sunday,
until it is no longer a sacred day of rest
and prayer for a great number, but
rather a day on which their efforts have
to be doubled. What has been the re
sult? If you knew the young man of
today as I know him, you would see
cause for alarm. If you ltnew the moral
tone of many that we are sending into
our newly acquired lands, you would feel
deeply pained, for you would readily see
that instead of civilizing the people, their
moral status will be lowered. The* reme
dy for all this is the inculcation of the
lesson of the life of Washington into
the youth of the present day."

meeting of the Smith and Ries club was
held last evening at Eureka hall, Uni

English, a'hd ift'some cases in both lan
guages, by a number of the best known
Democrats of that portion of the city.

John S. Grode, who was the first
speaker, spoke in German, reviewed the
present Democratic administration of city
affairs, contrasting it with the preced
ing Republican administrations, greatly
to the disadvantage of the latter. He
spoke in high terms of praise of Robert
A. Smith, and also of Andrew J. Ries,
candidate for nomination on the Demo
cratic ticket for the office of alderman
of the Eighth ward.
O. H. O'Neill, assistant county attor
ney, and candidate for nomination for
the office of municipal judge, who fol
lowed Mr. Grode, spoke in English, and
explained the method of voting under the
new primary law. This law, he said,
he considered an improvement over the
former system of nominating by conven
tion, but still it was not entirely fair, as
under some circumstances its provisions
worked to the partial disfranchisement
of some of the voters. He considered
it a violation of the secrecy of the bal
lot to make a man declare before the
election board at a primary election what
ticket he had voted at a previous elec
tion, or what one he intended to vote,
and he felt sure that provision would at
certain times keep many from voting at
the primary elections. Francois Martin,
of the Volkszeitung, the next speaker,
delivered his address in German, com
mending in high terms the present admin
istration and the official record of Rob
ert A. Smith in particular.
Frank Ford, candidate for nomination
for the office o£ municipal judge, spoke
in English, declaring his fealty to the
Democratic party and his desire to see
Robert A. Smith re-elected.
A. J. Ries brie&y addressed the meeting
first in German and then in English, con
cisely stating his principles. He said it
had been said that he had been induced
to run by certain Democrats who were
going to furnish $2,500 for his campaign,
and also that the street railway company
was going to furnish $2,000 for his cam
paign, but' both of those, reports were
false. He was not going to make a
money campaign for two reasons—in the
first place he had no money to spend,
and beside that he considered it wrong
to buy votes, and did not want those that
had to be secured in that way.
T. J. McDermo-tt, in a dispassionate
manner, censured the official career of
Matthew Buntz, present alderman from
the Eighth ward, and candidate for re
nomination. He characterized Mr. Bantz's
conduct in the matter of the election of
city attorney and county commissioner
as traitorous to the party which had
elected him and which looked to him for
faithful service in return. If he found
that he could not do as his Democratic
constituency he should have re

REV. DAVID MORGAN SURPRISES
SOCIALISTS BY HIS

America's Industrial Supremacy line
to Gigantic Corporations Reduc
ing Expenses of Production-
Government Control Needed.
Rev. David Morgan delivered an ad
dress yesterday afternoon before the So
cialists' club in Pfeifer's hall on the sub
ject of "Trusts." Mr. Morgan's address
was something of a surprise to a great
many of the members of the club, for he
failed to condemn them.
Mr. Morgan took up the history of the
trusts from their earliest organization
and said they were the resul* of an ex
amination started by a socialist of New
York. This man raised a cry against
the number of drummers employed by
the different wholesale houses in the city,
saying expenses of keeping these
men on the road must be paid by the
consumer. His cry against the drummer
was taken up by people all over the
country and by the manufacturers and
wholesalers as well. in order to save
this expense large commercial interests
were combined to save this expense.
"The first trust formed," said Mr. Mor
gan, "was the whisky trust. The differ
ent distilleries were combined under one
management, and each one was assigned
a certain territory into which it should
ship its products. All the drummers
were taken from the road, and the ex
pense of placing liquor on the market
was greatly reduced. While expenses
were reduced, the price of the product
was not in the least affected, and the
profits of the distiller was materially in
"The success of the whisky trust was
so satisfactory that the different
branches of commercial industry took up
the idea and formed trusts. The Stand
ard Oil company was the next corpora,
tion formed under the idea. It was per
haps the most successful one that has
been organized, and introduced methods
that compelled those concerns which le

"Since the formation of the Standard
Oil trust almost every other industry in
the country has fo.ilow*d the idea, and
trusts have been formed in every branch i
of trade. There is now a steel trust an
iron trust, a cracker trust, and so on
embracing every branch of trade.
"These trusts are a good thing for the
country, and have resulted in making
this the greatest commercial nation in
tne world. The trust simply means the
majcimum production at the minimum
expense. This enables the country to
take Its place at the head of all the na

the goods needed at a lower expense than
can the other countries of the world

E. A. Kimball, of Chicago, a lecturer of
the_ First Church of Christ Scientist o£
Boston, spoke before an audience in the
Grand opera house yesterday afternoon
that completely filled the structure.
Every seat down stairs was filled, tha
balcony was in a like condition, and the
gallery held its quota. Those that ar
rived late in the afternoon were obliged
to stand in the aisles and many had to
leave owing to the lack o£ room. The

Mr. Kimball did not take up the scien
tific reasonings for his creed, but con
tented himself with a statement of as
sumed facts concerning the ills of man
kind and the futility of the reliance of
drugs for a cure. He also spoke against
the belief svf a personal devil and an in
finite hell, maintaining that such were
the depraved imaginings of a barbarous
and a pagan time. His address was in
part as follows:
"I ask you to lay aside all differences
of creed, politics and other beliefs that
you may all stand on one common ground
without bias or prejudice and that you
may consider whether or not there may
be some new methods of relieving the
ills of mankind. Having all respect for
your mental integrity I shall not indulge
in any deep sopihistry, but leave you to
farm your own judgments concerning

vitation here? Why, because Christian
Science is drying the tears, reforming
the drunkard and curing ills that are
commonly called incurable or fatal.
Christian Science purports to teach tha
science of Godl, and we do not yet know
all concerning God, or even common man
It does not purport to be anything new,

"This society is trying to do just what
Jesus Christ told hi 3 disciples they must
do. There are some people who practice
one-half of the life of Jesus Christ, ana
what So they do? They spend much ot
their time in assailing us who try to
practice all he taught.
" 'Go thou and do likewise,' said Jesus
Christ to his apostles, and for 300 years
they healed the sick and dying until poli
tics with its baneful influence stopped the
work. We have resumed this practice ot
curing according to God's law. Is God
less good, less generous, less willing to
help the afflicted than he was 1.900 years
ago? Has God changed? I ask you as
Christians for an answer and you cannot
say that he has. Why then are you
warned against us as being dangerous?
"Christian Science is revolutionary i:i a

Personal Devil Theory.
One of the olde that we have
to contend with is i £ personal devil.
Now. where and what is this personal
devil? The only reasonable answer that
can be given is that sin Is the devil.
But then sin reduced to its fundamental
basis is in the thought, and should peo
ple cease to sin tonight, at that time the
devil would pass away. They tell you
the devil fell from heaven. Do they
make devils there? If so, you had bet

tists the devil Is merely cvl!. Many re

was a grosser piece of ignorant imag

Evil is finite, and cannot become infinite!
It is a finite misconception of that which
is right and proper. Hell is simply the
finite punishment that is inflicted on him
who sins. What is the use of bell? You
scare a man into heaven. The only im
mortal thing is the infinite goodness of

i>rook the companionship of a personal
ievil and an infinite hell.
Arother ideal is that man is naturally
bad. Christian Science comes to main

FOR BETTER SCHOOLS
STATE INSPECTION FOR COUNTRY
DISTRICTS A NECESSARY
EDITCATORS IN FAVOR OF IT
Will Again Ask Legislature to Grant
It—Views of County Superin
tendent Freeman, of
Although the last session of the leg
islature killed the bill providing for ru
ral school inspectors, the Idea has not
been killed but has been agitated more
extensively than ever before, and ths
county superintendents desiring it are
preparing to bring it before the next ses- »
sion of the legislature, when they feel
sure that it will be passed. When tho
bill was introduced last year the idea
was a new one and it had never be^n
discussed to any extent and there was
no systematic effort to secure its favor
A number of county superintendents,
who have been in St. Paul during the
past week, express entire confidence that
the next legislature will act favorably
upon the proposition.
County Superintendent W. IS. Freeman,
of Blue Earth county, is among the most
enthusiastic champions of the bill.
He thinks that if the state high and
graded schools need inspectors, much
more do the normal schools. He says ru- „
ral schools are not what they should
be and help is needed. Ha says:
Those who have given the matter of
state inspection of high and graded
schools some consideration will not ques
tion that the greatest good has oome
from it. The inspectors of these schools
go from one town or city to another,
carrying with them the best ideas and
method's of all the schools inspected. Ex
cept in very extraordinary and highly
justifiable cases; these inspectors do not
attempt to dictate to the principals or
superintendents of such city schools. A
wise inspector will unite his authority
with the influence of the principal or
superintendent, and togther will secure
through the board of education such
building, suah apparatus and such teach
ers as the conditions of the school may
require. How many times have I, and
how many times havo you, heard prtci
pals and superintendents express a wish
that the inspector would come in order
that necessary changes might be made in
teachers or school equipment?
Before passing to tine real question at _
issue, it will be well to compare the con
ditions governing the inspection and su
pervision of the common schools of a
county with those of the city. Far ths
purpose I shall take the city of Mankato
and the county o>£ Blue Birth. 1 select
these two because of a personal knowl
edge of each. I believe a perfectly paral
lel case may be drawn from any county
in the state. Some may say there are
few counties in the state with as many
teachers as Blue Earth. In answer to
which I must say that there are few
cities in the state with as many teachers
Mankato has one superintendent, Blue
Earth has one. Mankato has forty-one
rooms to be visited. Blue Earth has one
hundred forty-three, excluding live inde
pendent districts. Mankato schools are
confined to five buildings, no two or
which are more than tw?> miles apart.
Blue Rarth has one hundred forty-three
buildings scattered over nine hundred
square milea. Mankato has nine months
school, during all of which time inspec
tion and supervision may be carried on.
Blue Earth has lesa than eight months
school on the average. Mankato schools
open, iiave their vacation, and close unl
formily. Blue Earth schools open from
the Ist of September to the 15th of No
vember, and close at sundry times. Man
kato has forty-one competent teachers.
Blue Earth has one hundred forty-three
teachers, 20 per cent of whom are profes
sionally trained 1, 33 per cent are
without any experience whatever,
and many of tlwwn with no
more than a very elementary education.
Mankato lias few changes amnng its
teaching force. Blue Earth changes ful
ly one-third every year. By a similar
comparison with some of the smaller
towns of the county much greater differ
ences would appear, but 1 consider the
comparison a typical one.
