Morning and Afternoon Serv
ices—To Be Here All
Week.
Two large audiences gathered in the
House of Hope church yesterday to listen
to Rev. G. Campbell Morgan, who is con
ducting a series of extension lectures for
the Northfield association.
While the audience in the morning was
large, that of the afternoon was still
BgffK 1
Dr. .norsiin as He Stnrl* to Preach.
greater in size, and every word was lis
tened to with the greatest of attention.
Mr. Morgan is well satisfied with the
work so far in this city, and the success
that has greeted him up to the present
time is encouraging him for the future.
"When seen by The Globe last night
.Mr. Morgan said:
"I can truly say that I am more than
pleased with the reception I have received
in St. Paul, and the earnestness of the
people to whom I have so far spoken
has impressed me. The attendance has
been entirely satisfactory, and has been
increasing steadily since the lirst night
that I spoke.
"While the audiences that I have spoken
to are probably not quite so large as
those I have seen in other cities the size
of St. Paul, the intelligence and Interest
displayed by them has been far above
tne average. This is a thing to be most
desired in meetings of this character.
In the work 1 am now engaged in mere
numbers do not toll accurately the suc
cess of the work. We are not holding
the ordinary evangelical meeting, but
meetings for ministers, Sunday school
teachers and church workers who are in
terested in the Bible.
"When this fact is considered it is easy
to see how a comparatively small audi
ence of a high degree of intelligence and
earnestness is preferable to a large audi
ence lacking In a measure these Qualifi
cations.
"I have been used to speaking in much
larger churches, capable of accommodat
ing a large number of nersons, and I
think the size of the church has fre
quently much to do with the size of the
audience. 1 have while here noted par
ticularly the attention that has been paid
to my remarks, and have always found

it to be all that could be desired. My
sermons are somewhat long for the ordi
nary person. Last Friday night I spoke
for over an hour, and the congregation
was all attention. There was no bustle
or noise and looking around, so that I
feel that my work is successful.
"Before I came to St. Paul I was in
St. Louis, and there found the church
workers very enthusiastic and eager to
learn. This is the first time that I have
ever been in St. Paul, and I must say
that I am pleased with it as a city. I
am going to Duluth when the course is
concluded here, and from Duluth I will
go to Chicago and from Chicago to Day
ton."
Mr. Morgan will speak twice each day
during the week at the House of Hope
church—in the afternoon at 3 o'clock and
in the evening.
WORKED AMONG CHINESE
REV. F. A. ANDERSOX TEIX.S OF
MISSIONARY METHODS.
Rev. F. A. Anderson, of Aberdeen. Scot
land, who is on his way home from China,
where he has been engaged in mission
ary work, talked on the different phases
of Chinese life at the Park Congregatijrt
al church last night. Rev. Mr. Anden*>-.i
has spent the greater portion of his life
in China forwarding the interests of
Christianity, and he,, has original ideas
in carrying out the work.
"To succeed," said he, "the mission
ary must put the- home spirit behind him.
If he is from America he must dispos
sess his mind of Americanism and appar
ently be wrapped up in China. He must
be of the opinion that China is the only
country.
"Here in America," he said, "we regard
China as heathenish, but in China they
think they pre the only nation on earth.
"Recently, in conversation with a promi
nent celestial, I had the opportunity of
learning just how the average Chinaman
regards America. The Chinaman claim
ed to entertain very high opinions of this
country. 'America,' said the Chinaman,
'has be*n the originator of all the great
labor saving methods. She is the land
of invention, but China is the land of
the creator. Accordingly China takes the
preference,'
'As soon as we reach the Chinese in
terior," .said Rev. Anderson, we don the
garb of the country we inhabit. We do
our utmost to imitate the Chinese. We
try to impress on their minds that we
are one of them, and in this way we ac
complish the best results. Too many
missionaries hesitate to adopt provincial
customs, especially of a "country like
China, and in thi s va| they are handicap
ped."
FOR MEMORIAL DAY
ELIi TORRAXCE ISSUES CIRCULAR
COXTAIXIXG SUGGESTIONS FOR
SCHOOL EXERCISES
SALUTE TO NATION'S FLAG
Recommends That School Observ
ance Be Held Friday Preceding
Day Appointed—Patriotic -^-"^
** Songs to lie Sung.
Commander-in-Chief Ell Torranee, of
the Grand Army of the Republic, has
taken especial interest in the Memorial
day exercises in the public schools, and
through his special aid, George R.
Lewis, in charge of military instruction
and patriotic education in schools nas
issued a circular containing his sugges
tions for such ilemorial day observance,
as follows:
In order to impress upon the youth
ful mind of the rising generation the
importance of laving and respecting the
flag of our country and lead the pupils
of our schools to think of the tie
mendous cost in lives and treasure that
has made this country what it is today,
it is desired by the commander-in-chief
of the G. A. R. that fitting exercises
take place at each of the schools in our
county on the Friday preceding Memor
ial day. In connection with other exer
cises a salute to the flag is recommended
which is as follows: The right hand up
lift, d palm upward to a line with the
forehead close to it. While thus stand
ing with palm upward and in the atti
tude of salute ..all the pupils repeat to
gether slowly and distinctly the follow
ing pledge: "I pledge allegiance to my
flag and to the republic for which it
stands. One nation indivisible with lib
erty and justice for all." At the words
as pronounced in this pledge "to my
Sag" each one extends the right hand
gracefully palm upward toward the Hag
until the end of the pledge. Then all
hands drop to the side. The pupils still
standing all sing together in unison the
song, "America, My Country Tis of
Thee."
In the primary department where chil
dren are very small they are taught to
repeat this, instead of the pledge as
given for the older children. "I give my
hand, my head and my heart to my
country; one country, one people, one
flag."
In some schools the salute is given in
silence, as an act of reverence, unac
companied by any pledge. At a signal,
as the Hag reaches it station the light
hand is raised palm downward to a
horizontal position against the forehead,
and held there until the flag is dipped
and returned to a vertical position. Then
at a second signal, the hand is dropped
to the side, and the pupils take their
seats. -" v-. ,-"'--
The silent salute conforms "very closely
to the military and naval salute to the
flag.
Principals may adopt the "silent sa
lute" for a daily exercise and the "pledge
salute" for special occasions. At the
given hour in the morning the pupils
are assembled in their school rooms. A
.signal is given by the principal or the
school. Every pupil rises in his place.
The flag is brought forward to the prin
cipal.
While it is being brought forward from
the door to the stand, every pupil sa
lutes the Hag in one of the foregoing
forms.
School boards throughout the county
are requested to procure a suitable flag
for each of their schools and thus dis
charge a patriotic and important duty.
Comrades of the Grand Army are re
quested to assist by their presence, and
in making addresses to schools on the
day designated for patriotic exercises.
LOOK TO UNITED STATES
XETHERI.AVDRRS IXQMKIXG FOR
AMBRKAX-MADK CHARCOAL.
Soren Listoe, of St. Paul, United States
consul at Rotterdam, writing from that
place March 14, gives the following facts
in relation to charcoal and pig iron in
The Netherlands tn reply to inquiries of
American manufacturers:
"But little charcoal is used in The Neth
erlands. No official statistics exist as to
the amount imported and consumed, but
the only dealers in this article <n my
consular district, Messrs. E. W. a—ssch«
moller & Son, inform me that the total
importation into The Netherlands does
not amount to 1,000 tons. The price paid
for charcoal of good quality, the so-called
"retort coal," is 300 florins ($120) per ten
tons, delivered at Rotterdam. The char
coal imported is manufactured in Ger
many.
•'Messrs. Hissehormoller & Son have re
quested me, with a view to the importa
tion of American charcoal, to ask Amer
ican exporters if the charcoal produced
in the United States is "meiler" or "re
tort" coal; if of the first kind, tln-n: w'll
|>c no sale for it in The Netherlands, but
if retort coal they would like to receive
quotations. The importers further state
that as charcoal is an article which in
Germany must be disposed of at any
price, tne German exporters would, in
the event of American competition, un
doubtedly lower the prices which are now
current."
German- American Veteran*.
Francis Martin read a paper on the
German-American officer in the different
American wars at the monthly meeting
of the German-American Veterans' asso
ciation yesterday, in which he told of
the great services rendered the American
nation by the soldiers of German descent.
Many of the very best commanders, he
said, were German, both on land and
sea. The German soiuie-r, he said, had
always responded quickly in time of need
arid shouldered the musket along with
the American brother. Dr. Martin will
read a continuation of the paper at the
next monthly meeting.
DAILY BLOWS
Hi-oiinlil 011 A ppemlieil i*.
If a person will continue to put a little
poison in the body each day, for instance
like a cup of coffee each morning when
coffee acts as a poison, and it frequently
does, the result will be an attack some
oay in same of the organs of the body.
The little disturbances each day pile up
and finally become a big disturbance.
Many cases of appendicitis have been
brought on by coffee drinking. It firs*.
affects the nerves of the stomach, and
the disorder travels on down through the
bowels, and results in some kind of bowel
trouble, frequently appendicitis.
A lady In Fredonia, N. V., says. "Dur
ing my school life, both as a student an.i
teacher, I drank coffee regularly. Most
of the time I knew the coffee was injur
ing me, but did not feel like giving it up
First my nerves felt the effect, and later
on constipation developed, and after that
the last year I had a severe attack of
appendicitis. My doctor and friends all
agreed that these troubles were largely
caused by coffe drinking.
While I was ill some Postum was sent
me by friends. I supposed it was coffee
and hesitated at the first cup, but when
the difference was explained and I drank
as much as I cared for, with such good
result?, I concluded Postum was just
what I wanted, and have used it ever
since. It greatly aids digestion, is nour
ishing and refreshing.
My food and nourishment while get
ting well from appendicitis were Postum
and Grape Nuts.
If I had known of Postum years ago I
might have been saved a tremendous
amount of suffering brought on by coffee
drinking.
Rev. — is one of my converts to
Postum. He suffered greatly from dys
pepsia, but has entirely recovered since
he quit coffee and began using Postum.
Dr. who suffered a long while
from nervous troubles, says Postum
brought him out when he quit coffee and
he constantly . urges it on his patients
who are coffee tiriuker*." ' •"->■ i-
GOOD MEET ASSURED
state pair programme best
that has been of
jfered yet
CHANGES IS! THE CONDITIONS
Horses May Be Entered as Late
as August 15 on Payment
„..of. 3 Per Cent of the
Parse.
The executive committee of the stale
fair board has completed the race pro
gramme for the fair of 1902, and is of
the belief that it is the best programme
yet arranged f for a state fair meet. A3
laid out there will be eleven trotting and
pacing- races during fair week in addition
to the running races which will take place
each day. None of the trotting and pac
ing races will be for purses of less
than $1,000, and for Minneapolis and St.
Paul days the popular $5,000 races, which
have been such an interesting feature or
the last three or four fairs, will be put on
again this year.
As to conditions, the Minnesota fair man
agement ha 3 made several innovations
this year, which will be particularly
popular with horsemen. For instance, an
entered horse may be withdrawn as late
as August 13 on payment of 3 per cent of
the purse. It is also provided that one
horse may be entered in two classes ana
be held for but one entry if started m
only one class. Another provision is that,
two horses may be entered in one class
while if only one should start the owner
will be held only for one entry. It will
readily be seen that these rules will give
horsemen many advantages which they
have not heretofore enjoyed, and it is be
lieved that the liberal provisions will leal
to a very large entry of horses for the
state fair meet.
The race programme and full statement ;
of conditions follow:

NEW UNION IS FORMED
ST. I>AIX HOLDERS' HEM'RRS .IOI\
RAXKSOF ORGANIZED LABOR
Movement Is Direct Outcome of Df.s
pules at the Hoist and Derrick
Works Last Week—Char
ter Applied For. :;- '
Foundry helpers employed in various ca
pacities of the different foundries in, tne
city, mot in Federation hall, Wabasha and
Third streets, yesterday and formed a
labor organization, to be known as the
Iron Holders' Helpers union. Temporary
officers were elected, pending the arrival
of the charter.
The organization is the direct result of
the strained conditions that have been
existing between the American Hoist t t
Derrick company and its employes for
some time, and the fact that the com
pany refused to accede to the demands
of the laborers for a 25 cent raise.
At the meeting yesterday afternoon,
nearly fifty members were enrolled, but
as the proposed union had not been gen
erally talked among the foundrymen,
there were many absent. It is anticipat
ed, however, that by the time the char
ter is signed there will be fully a hundred
names enrolled.
The new organization will be affiliated
with the American Federation of Labor,
and that organization will provide a char
ter.
A committee was appointed to secure
it and as soon as it arrives a permanent
organization will be formed.
Representatives from the Foundry
Molders" union were at the meeting, to
assist in the organization. They, advised
the helpers to organize and then the
molders would aid them in their troubles,
but if they remained unorganized they
were powerless to assist them.
The employes of the American Hoist &
Derrick company, who went on strike
Saturday, were out in force. Their case
came before the meeting, but it was de
cided that the new organization would be
too weak to dictate terms to any employ
ers, at the present time, and consequently
the strikers would have to settle the af
fair with their employers as individuals
and not as an organization. This the
strikers were perfectly willing to do, and
were of the opinion that their demands
would be acceded to befor? the week is
out.
Robert Nash was chosen temporary
president and J. G. Rowles temporary sec
retary. A meeting will be held in the
same hall next Sunday afternoon at 3:90
o'clock.'
Italian Dems to Meet.
Italian Democrats will meet at Xo. 108
Upper Levee, near Frank James' saloon,
next Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock. The
meeting will be callad by Carmine Rn
bert. who is chairman of the Italian
Democratic dab, and he will also be the
speaker of the evening. The Italians on
the Uppj-r Levee are doing effective wori^
for the election of Robert A. Smith, and
their meetings are well attended.

During March and April the Milwaukee

E. S. Marchand, of Algiers. I>a., was in
St. Paul yesterday on his way from Seat.
tie to New York, from which place b ■
will sail for Europe shortly. Mr. Marchand
is in the cotton business and says the
outlook for the crop this coming year
is gooJ. although it is too soon to be able
to make any definite ealeulati ms.
Mr. IMa-chand says there is a great deal
of misapprehension concerning the ship
ment of horses and mules for South Af
rica. He is opposed to allowing the Krii
ish to purchase supplies which might
be properly considered to be contraband
of war in the United States, but he af
firms that there is no such thing as an
English military camp In the state of
Louisiana.
"The people of Louisiana would not
allow an English camp in the state even
if the federal government would not in
terfere. There i 3 no question that tits
men superintending the sale «nd shipment
of horses and mules are English army
officers. Everybody believes this to be
the caste, but they are never seen with
their uniform on. They go about their
business as any horse dealer might, al
though there is no question as to their
identity or the purpose for Which the
horses and mules are being bought.
"It is, however, commonly believed that
the men who go over on the boats with
the mules are in a manner forcad to enlist
in the English army and compelled to
tight against the Boers. This fact is gen
erally known, and I do not think that
there are any who take the job of caring
for the mules on the transports who do
not know just what to exp . t.
Are Forced t«> Enliftt.
"There are a great many mule packers
in the South and Southwest who go to
Africa on the supposition that they will
be employed with the army pack trains,
but I understand that wnen they arrive
they are taken up into the interior and
given the option of taking a gun and
fighting or subsisting on their own re
sources. This practically amounts to
compuls-.iry recruiting, for the nature of
me country and the conditions that pre
vail make it almost impossible for a man
to live that is not connected with either
army.
•'When the first sh;pm:nts of mules were
made this was not known, and a larg«;
number of men were entrapped so to
speak, into the British army. The people
of Louisiana as a rule are greatly op
posed to the whole affair and are anxious
to have it stopped. Of course, there are
the interested parties who are dealing
in horses, mules and forage, and are
making a lot of money out of it. These
naturally want to see all the mules and
horses bought, as they got good prices
for them. oov. Hoard is anxious to have
the traffic stopped, and I think he will
do all in his power to accomplish this.
Many of the best informed men of the
state feel that it is an affair for the fed
eral government to look into, and I think
that the present agitation will bring about
a definite understanding.
Neutrality Laws Are (omplev.
"The neutrality laws are something
that the ordinary human being has a
very small conception of, and while
nearly everybody in the South is opposed
to allowing the British government to
purchase its horses and mules in the
United States to help them fight the
Boers, those who can definitely say
whether their dealings are violations of
the law are few.
•'When I left the South over a month
ago ti.ere was considerable feeling about
the matter, althoiigh it cannot be denied
that it has helped to raise the prices
of horses and mules, and some men in
the South have grown rich. I have fre
quently heard it said that the one sure
way to help the Boers was to let the
English army buy all the mules it wants
to, and that sooner or later the country
would be bankrupt. I have heard it
stated, and presumably on good author
ity, that every mule laid down at Cape
Town costs the English government $300.
At that rate, when one stops to think
of the number of mules that have been
bought ajnee the war started, it will be
seen that there is something plausible
in thio view of the case. However, the
people of the United States can rest as
sured that if the federal government de
cided that the sale of mules and horses
at Chalmette is in violation ol the neu
trality laws, the state officers will soon
put an end to it."

OF Mi USl'Ai'KiiS
HUGO AS A PHILOSOPHER
Classes Him Far Above Theologian*
—Dram Lessons From His >io*t
Famous Xovel, "Lea
Miserable.*."
In the course of his sermon at the First
M. E. church last evening \i-v. \>. \..
Rader paid his compliments to the news
papers, pronounced the writer of "Lea
Miaerables" (Victor Hugo) to h^ fat
ahead of the theologians in true philoso
phy, and with a few words oi in
to the older Methodists said: "Our best
philosophy and our best knowledge of
human nature; is to be found in the best
fiction, better there than in either history
or biography. In fiction we get into the
thought life of the author, which is really
the best lite." J)r. Rader chose v, v his
text, I Corinthians, -):22. and the subject
of hid discourse was the convi rsion of
Jean Valjean as depicted in Victor H
work above referred to. He said in
"Talk about your gnat theologians. We
have no groat theologians, although we
have now'reached a stai, ■ ol
ment from which I believe there will
develop within the next fifty years some
tremendously great theologians. Theol
ogy is a hard science and imp not easily
mastered. The writer of th<' great work
1 .-4iall discuss this evening was far
ahead of <>nr theologians in philosophy.
lie has taken things as he found theni
and has presented them to us without
prejudice, and as they were. The book,
'Ijes Miserables,' is a truly
story, and if you have read it on!'
the story you should read it u£?ain fo
philosophy which is in it. It contain
a philosophy which is built out oi
and that is true philosophy.
"The newspapers do not give you phil
osophy, and they do not give you any
thing to make you think. If they thought
they did they would probably apologize
to you for it. The newspaper sti:
print only what will sell, and is g<n
entirely by that idea. That can be
proven in this way: It six of you who
are here this evening and who live in
different parts of the city and presumably
reflect the s> ntiment of your ■
localities should write to your newspaper
man tomorrow that you did not like the
character of certain matter which had
been published, you would find that noth
ing of that same character would im
printed in that paper for some time to
come. That is how the saloon men have
such a hold upon the newspapers. The
saloonkeeper has two grips upon the
newspapers' for if he does not like what
they print he can send word that he will
stop his subscription and will also take
his advertisement out of the newspaper.
When he does that his wishes are obeyed,
but you business men merely say, 'Well,
I do not like it, but I must have the
news," and then you continue to take the
paper just the same."
Dr. Kadcr drew the lesson of his ser
mon from the character of the priest fn
the b<>ok who was instrumental in effect
ing the conversion of Jean Valjean.

HUNTING FOR IRON

OX LARGE u.i: IN MK
SABA RA.VGE
DRILLING PARTIES AT WORK
Operation* Are Expensive, lint Re
cent Discoveries Have .Instilled
Ueiiewe*- Activity—Short,
age of Diamond Drill*.
It is the expectation of men who watch
the progress of events In iron mining
that very extensive explorations will be
carried on up on the Mesaba range this
coming Bummer. It is customary for a
marked decline to succeed the winter ac
tivity as soon as mining operations !>•■- I
gin in the spring. These men whose tinie
is occupied In the summer with the re
sponsibilities of getting out a good prod
uct from working mines have little timo
to worry about new properties.
Such an impetus ha been given to in
terest In mining properties by the numer
ous and large .-ales or leases oi the past
winter that renewed Interest has been
shown. Some men who have had charge
of exploratory operations for other peo
ple and have been released during the
.summer have found some locations, that
they think bear good promise and will
try flriiis on them. On? of the men who?©
opinion is considered worth money speaks
as follows:
Winter Hhm !!oi>h n iiuhv One.
"The past winter has been by far the* ;
most active in exploration of any tli>.t I
has been experienced on tho Mesaba
range. Fully 125 drills have been at work.
The largest number of those have been
operated by E. J. L/bngyear, who makes
a specialty of operating drills tinder con
tract. There are live or six men to a •
drill, on an average, perhaps, and tho
total number of men engaged in drilling
operations on the. Mesaba the past winter
is estimated at 500 or COO.
"It costs" about $300 to make the aver
age deep drill hole on a Mesaba rang«
property. Quite a number of holes have
been made on a single forty by one party
having an option, and the property had
then been passed lip, while another man
has come along and with one hole drilled
has made a big find of iron. Some con- j
ception of the uncertainties of explora- \
tions may thus' be gained. Too often
people that are carrying on explorations
get faint hearted and discontinue ' th»;
work before the drill has gone down far
enough to determine whether Iron actu- j
ally exists at that point..
"One case is recalled in which a \>':,x
discovery was made on what Is now
known as the Savoy through what then
seemed sheer obstinacy. As it turned out,
it was real business shrewdness. A drill
bad been put down on the Savoy mining
location, so the story runs, until the pa
tience of everybody connected with the
property or the explorations had become
exhaust by the non-appearance of any
thing of a promising character. The rec
ommendation was made to A. M. Miller
that the explorations be discontinued,
and hope of finding iron be abandoned.
•'Mr. Miller Is said to hnw gotten his
back up at this untoward turn of fate.
'We'll keep on going down until vva reach
iron en the other side,' hr is said to I
have declared Immediately. The next
thing he heard was that a big find had i
been made.
"The Kastern Minnesota, it is said, Will
carry on more extensive exploration.!
during the summer months than any)
other one party. Some of this work la
being done on tho new western end of
the Bfesaba, on properties located in Itas
ca county.
Great Shortage of Drill*.
"There has -■■■•■. a shortage of drills all
winter. All the drills that were owned in
this pai of the country were pressed Into
service. Old churn drills that had not
seen service for years were repaired an<t
set at work. Local Iron works turned out
a great many of the s-arne sort. A good
diamond drill Is said to cost pretty well fj
up toward $:!.'■'.'. and as the activity,, in '
exploration was so great that the owner
of property finally had to furnish hia
own drill, the Investment In apparatus '
became somewhat large.
"Agents for manufacturers of drills and
sellers of the black diamonds that are
used in the drills have made Duluth their
camping ground this winter. There has
been hardly a day that more than one of
these emissaries was not at the Spaldinsj. •
If the activity continues, it would not be
surprising- if offices of these concerns
w«re established here."
