Gov. Van Sant yesterday issued his Ar

urging the general observance through
out the state. In the proclamation his
excellency is more poetic and fanciful

The proclamation is as follows:
Pursuant to an enactment of the legis
lature, and in accord with universal cus
tom, 1, as governor of the state of Min
i>' sota, do hereby fix and appoint Friday,
April IS, as Arbor and Bird day, and
earnestly urge the observance thereof
throughout the state. Approaching
springtide has brought back to us the
song birds which make Minnesota their
summer home, and the bursting buds
suggest the planting of trees, shrubbery
and vines, that our homes and public
places may be made more beautiful and
attractive. I especially urge that upon
the day indicated appropriate exercises
be held in every school within the state
to the end that our youth ma- be taught
to appreciate the beauties anf the impor
tance of protecting and preserving the
birds of our state.
I further recommend, in common with
the executives of many other states of
the Union, that upon said day trees be
planted in memory of William McKinley,
our late lamented president. His well
known love for trees and the beauties of
nature make it especially appropriate
that his memory be thus honored.

TIOXAL BITTER CONTEST
HIGH TRIBUTE TO MINIsESOTA

Whenever there are any dairy honors
to be passed around, Minnesota generally
gets her share. .When Sam Haugdahl
won the title of "world's champion butter
maker" at Paris, no surprise was ex
p^ssed. When the National Creamery
Buttermakers' association advanced the
proposition for a six months' national
butter contest, the committee in estimat
ing the possibility of securing- the desired
number of entries, counted on Minnesota
t.i furnish one-third of the total number.
Within a week it was plain that the esti
rrate was none too high. Out of the"Tirst
50 entries, Minnesota had 24. Out of the
first 100, Minnesota had 41, and now, with
the six months' contest assured Minne
sota has more than one-third of tho
pledged entries to her credit.
Yesterday B. D. White, of the state
ilairy and food department received a
pit position from the committee of the
national association in charge of this
contest, asking him to assist in the scor
ing of the butter In that contest. Prof.
T. L. Haecker. of the state school of
agriculture, received a similar proposition.
If they accept, this state will have the
honor cf two members on the scoring
force oi this most important butter con
test ever hreld in the world.
When the contest was first suggested, it
was asserted that the most difficult thin?
in connection with it would be the selec
tion of good judges. It was realized that
in order to make the contest a success
and satisfactory to the contestants, the
scoring would have to be so well done that
no exceptions could be taken to it. l-e
selection of Mr. White and Trof. Haecker
is therefore a public testimonial to the
high regard in which they are held by
the dairy interests of the country.
This contest will be thp first national
contest ever held in this country and
will be the first time the butte: makers
of the entire country have had an oppor
tunity to compete with ..each otner in
friendly rivalry for the purpose of general
mutual advantage and general education
in buttermaking methods.
The project has the approval of all the
state dairy departments and of the na
tional department of agriculture. The
bureau has lent a helping nand by offer
ing to purchase the butier exhibited from
the exhibitors after t c contest.
Minnesota takes especial pride in the
good showing made by Minnesota butter
makers in this, the preliminary prepara
tions for this contest, because the idea
was taken from the state monthly con
tests held by the Minnesota department
of dairy and food which have proved so
successful and oeen noted all over the

When Switchboard Is Installed, Op

Yesterday the Twin City Telephone
company moved its general offices from
tht; Phoenix building to its new home,
at Eighth and Cedar. The switchboard
remains in the old building and will not
be transferred for two months, as it will
take that length of time to make proper
preparations for the installment of the
new apparatus. The new building is a
model of its class in every respect, and
every foot of it has been laid out after
thoughtful consideration of the purpose
to be served. It is modern to the minut
est detail, and from the floor of the cellar
to the roof above there is nothing lack

It is well lighted by many widows, and
this is particularly true of the operating
room, where the "hello" girls work. This
floor is almost entirely glass. With just

When the switchboard is installed and

be one of the complttest in the United

possible precaution to secure an even

Fresh Air Every Few Minutes.
Fresh aid that is to be forced into th's
room is first run through a spray bath
which takes out all the dust. This
"washed" air is then forced over a heat
ed coil, or iced coils, according to the
season of the .year, and then sent up to
the operating room by a large fan. This
system works so well that the air in the
operating room will be completely chang
ed every ten minutes.
The switchboard that is now in the
course of construction is in the form of
an arc and capable of seating 150 opera
tors. If necessary the arc can be com
pleted to form an oval, when the force of
operators can be increased to a much
larger number. The furnishings of the
room, and all the iixtures, will be of
The building has a flight of stone steps
leading up to the entrance, over which
there is a powerful light. On the left

the right will be the counting room. The
offices are arranged so that Mr. Buck,
sitting at his desk, can see every person
that enters the building. Back of the
business offices are the ladies' locker
and toilet rooms. Each girl working in
the building will be given the use of an
open-worfced locker, through which the
air will be circulated all the time. Across
the hallway from this room there will be
a ladies' luncheon reading room.
The girls will have one room arranged
so that they can eat their lunches with

State Treasurer Block has written a
letter to Public Examiner Johnson calling
his attention to apparent inaccuracies in
the reports of certain corporations on
their gross earnings. He says:
Hon. S. T. Johnson, Public Examiner,
State Capitol—Dear Sir: In view of chap
ter 5, Laws of 1902, which makes it the
duty of the public examiner to examine
the bo&ks and accounts of corporations or
companies required by law to pay taxes
to the state upon a gross earnings basis,
I submit herewith a report of the Twin
City Telephone company, of St. Paul and
Minneapolis, of its gross earnings for the
year ending Nov. 30, 1901, as required by
chapter 314 of the GenPial Laws of Min
nesota for the year 1897. I also submit
herewith a publication of Trowbridge &
Nlver company, which shows the gross
earnings of said company to be far in
excess of their report. The publication,
as you will notice by the inclosed sheet,
would indicate that there is a very man
ifest discrepancy. The rptes charged by
the lwin City company, as I understand
it, are $30 per annum for residence and
$48 per annum for business places.
If their statement is correct, they must
have less than 1,250 subscribers in both
cities, allowing nothing for toll line busi
ness, which in their circular they place
I have written the officers of this com
pany a number of times, but they do not
seem di-nosed to discuss the issue, and 1
request that you make such examination,
if in your judgment, chapter 5, General
Laws "of 1902, apply in this caso. Yours
very truly, —J. H. Block,
Mr. Block has made a departure in
tended to make the bonds given by stats
depositories absolutely safe as long as
the banks remain depositories. He is
checking up all the bondsmen. A per
sonal letter is written to each, asking its
officers if there is any change in the
financial standing of the bondsmen by
death, removal busin-ess reverses or oth
erwise. Replies already received indi

Like inquiries will be made every six

KRIMECK BROS. DID NOT (LOSE
AT 7 O'CMH'K.
There appears to be a difference of
opinion among the boss barbers of the
city relative to the hour of closing. Last
night Krumeck Bros., who have shops at
289 and 245 EmUA Seventh, did not close
at 7 o'clock, which was the hour decided
upon by the other bosses of the city for
closing' after April" 1.
The failure on the part of these shops
to close at this time brought a large
crowd of union, men of all trades on the
street in front of the shops and cards
asking people to help the cause of .short
er hours for the barbers were passed
around. The procedure on the part of the
outsiders was in the nature of a boycott,
and every person that appeared to need
a shave was requested not to patronize
the shops that did not close at 7 o'clock.
Krumeck Bros, said last night that
there had been a meeting of the bosses
of tise shops east of Jackson street three
weeks ago and that it had b^en decided
by them that they could not afford to
close at 7 o'clock, as the nature of their
trade prevented it. In their two shops
there are ten chairs and the attendants
at each remained at work la.st night.
Barbers from other shops maintain that
Krumeck Bros, have the same trade as
any others and that they can afford to
close at 7 as well as the rest. They will
maintain a picket line around the shops
until a settlement of some kin.d is reach

Louis for Finals';
Dairy Commissioner McConnell baa re
ceived plans for a proposed t ■si of dairy
breeds of cows at the St. Lou's exposi
tion, with the request .hat the project
receive full discussion in the agricultural
press of the state from now on, in order
that the farmers may beoma interested
in it and lend their assistance. Th.; plan
is to have a preliminary test by states —
the testing of individual cows nt the
home of the owners by representatives of
the state experiment station, and fnally
an exhibition of all the cows *Ojjether
at the St. Louis exposition.
It is suggested that breeder? owning
valuable dairy cows should notify the
experiment station of a desire to enter the
contest. The test 'a to extend over a
period. of from eight to ton months and
consist of at least t.iree tests of two
weeks each, the test to commence from
fourteen to twenty-eight days after fresh,
ening, the second between 114 and Hi
days, and the third between 214 and 22$
days after. All the tests are to be made
under the supervision or' twe representa
tives of an experiment station, wh«
would watch the cows carefully day and
night, note the care, weigh the fool and
make notations of all important matters
connected with the test. It is suggested
from fifty to one hundred prizes be of
fered for net profits, for value of total
solids, for value of butterfat, etc.
After the. state tests have been made
and the results tabulated, all the cows
are tc be. exhibited, for the purpose of
testing, on the grounds of the exposition
for a period of from two to three weeks,
to be seen and critically Inspected by
those who desire to study their conforma
It is estimated that the cost of testing
a cow in this manner will not exceed $150.
It is also suggested that the sum of $5,000
be appropriated either by the state legis*
lature or from the general appropriation
for exposition purposes, to pay the cost
of these tests. Where it is possible an
appropriation cculd also be made for
duplicating the prizes of the exposition
in each state.
