ARRANGEMENTS COMPLETED FOR
EXTEXSICX OF STREET CAR
LI.\E THIS YEAR
FARE WILL BE FIVE CENTS
Transfer Privileges Will He In
cluded in Fare—Slight Hitch
Over Terminals at Stock
South St. Paul will have street car con
nections with the Saintly City before the
close of the present year, and .the fare
will be 5 cents with transfer privileges to
any line in the system.
' These terms were practically agreed -o
by the local officials of the Twin City
Rapid Transit company last week and as
soon as other details, principal among
| them, the location of the southern term
inus of the line are completed a fran
: chise for a goodly term of years will be
granted to the company by me South St.
Paul authorities. The only hitch now is
whether the line shall end at the stock
yards gate or run to the South St. Paul
The St. Paul end of the extension was
provided for some weeks ago when a res
olution was introduced in the council
ordering that the Concord street line be.
extended to the city limits, which is An
napolis street. The remainder of the ter
ritory has been surveyed by the com
pany's engineers and awaits only the in
vasion of a construction crew.
The local onicials are reticent regarding
the extension, and beyond admitting that
it will be built, and possibly this year,
will say little else. It is not known
whether the line will be double tracked or
not, though it is understood the South St.
Paul authorities in promising a franchise
have stipulated that it shall.

business and maintain a schedule that
will accommodate those employed at the
packing plants, especially during the
rush hours, can only be done, it is con
tended, with the line double tracked.
The Twin City Rapid Transit company
was a heavy purchaser of steel rulls last
year, and more than one-half of the con

TROUBLE IN A FACULTY
PRINCIPAL OF THE AGRICULTURAL
StliOOL MAT RKSIGN
Friction Said to Be Outgrowth of
Differences Between F. D. Tncker
and Mrs. Meredith— "
Jt is rumored that Principal Frederick
D. Tucker, of the state agricultural school
may resign his position because of friction
in the faculty, whereby Dean Liggett and
himself are not enjoying the most har
monious relations. The trouble is said
to be the outgrowth of a misunderstand
ing between Mr. Tucker and Mrs. Mere
dith, the preceptress of the school. The
feeling between the two is said to be ir
reconcilable and one or the other must go.
The beard of regents on Friday last
wrestled all afternoon with the problem
and arrived at no definite conclusion.
Every effort was made to keep the matter
quiet, but after the meeting one of the
members dropped a remark to the ef
fect that the board did not like to par
ticipate in a disagreement between Dean
Liggett-and Principal Tucker. An at
tempt has been made to heal the difficulty.
but tliis is not considered possible, and at
the end of the school year, it is said, it
may be necessary to find a successor' to
Prof. Tucker, whs feels that hjs authority
must either be backed up by the beard or
a new head of the school secured.
TEACHERS WILL STUDY
SPECIAL INSTRUCTION' IX INDUS
TRIAL WORK TO BE GIVEN.
The regular monthly meeting of the
principals of the St. Paul schools was held
yesterday afternoon at the Central High
school. The coliseum project was discuss
ed at some length, and the teachers de
ckled that they did not consider it wise to
take any action as a body, but preferred
that ttw matter be left an individual one,
each teacher being allowed to act inde
pendently In the matter of giving a day's
wages for the coliseum fund.
The meeting discussed the industrial
work to be taken up in the public schools.
Although his work will not be introduced
into the schools this year, the meetings
for the instruction of teachers in this
work under direction of the supervisors
will begin immediately and be continued
until he close of the school year. This
work will consist of weaving, woodwork,
sloyd, etc., and is being received most fav
orably by the teachers.

PALLY JAIL COMPAXY ASSESSED
$25 A DAY.
The Pauly Jail company, of St. Louis,
must pay Ramsey county at the rate of
$25 per day since tne first of last Sep
tember, and probably for some titne to
come, at the same rate.
The contract between the company and
Ramsey county, for the construction of
the new jail specifies that all the iron
work should be delivered in St. Paul by
Sept. 1, and a penalty of 125 per day was
affixed to the contract. The material has
not all been delivered yet and will not,
in all probability, for at least six weeks.
The commissioners recently sent notice to
the Pauly company that the contract
would be strictly enforced.

Last night the park board renewed its
faith in the project and from now on
will bend its energies toward bringing tlio
improvement to a reality. Plats of the
ground desired here were ordered of the
c-ity engineering, and as soon as they are
received, the work of condemning th?
ground will be commenced. For the pres
ent the board will confine- its efforts to
acquiring a strip of ground 200 feet in
v.idth from Shadow Falls paik to the
Fort Sm-lling bridge. Later the strip will
be extended to the high bridge, where a
street, which will be given over to the
park board to be beautified, will connect
it with the se:ies of driveways with which
the board in time hopes to conect alhhe
principal parks and drives.
Supt. Nussbaumer last night informed
the board that he had comenced work on
the driveway that will connect Indian
Mounds park with thre state fish hatcheries
It will be of easy grade, a mile In length
and will cost $5,000. The beautifying or
the hatchery grounds has been placed in
the hands of the park board and with the
other improvements now being made to
the pools and buildings will make it onp
of the show nlaoes of St. Paul. Over
twenty-five acres of ground has been add
ed to Indian Mound park the past year.
It is now b^ing provided with a hand
some and commodious pavilion.
From the ruins of the old Eisenmeng-er
building, which the board acquired
through the purchase of several lots near
Indian Mounds park, the board has con
structed at Como park a handsome lava
tory. It is constructed entirely cf pressed
brick and cut and carved stone, an.l is
estimated to be worth fully $6,000. For
the lots, including the ruins, the boarrt
paid $3,500. It has realized more than
that from the brick and stone taken from
the dismantled buildings located on tnein.
DULUTH CETTING PROUD
ZEMTH CITY WILL CELEBRATE,
TWO ARBOR DAIS THIS TEAR
Mayor lingo Cut in Ahead of the

His Is the Real
One. - ■ -v//
Oov. Van Sant thougtet he was more
than "bright and .early" in announcing
Arbor day this year, especially in the
face of the weather of Saturday and Sun
day. But it appears that his excellency
was not quite rapid enough, and as a
result Duluth will have the rare privilege
of observing two Arbor days. Mayor
Hugo lixed Saturday, April 19 as Arbor
day in Duluth, several days before Guv.
Van Sant named Friday, April 18. It is
somewhat unusual for a mayor of a
city to name Arbor day on his own ac
count. That is supposed to be one of
the functions of the governor. But
-Mayor Hugo is going to allow his day
to stand anyway, and he thinks the peo
ple of Duluth -wil celebrate nis Arbor
• lay more universally than they will
Gov. Van Sant's Arbor day. Of course
Gov. Van Sant does not care when they
celebrate Arbor day, but it will give his
enemies a chance to say that he was
second favorite in the Duluth Arbor
-Mayor Hugo's reason for letting his
»rder stand is that the school teachers
and school children will take a prom
inent part in starting the campaign here,
and, if it occurred on Friday, they -wouM
be occupied with their school duties and
could not be expecod to engage in the
programme to any great extent.
As the mayor had issued his procla
mation previous to the governoi-s, h e
does not see fit to waive his right of
priority, particularly as a great many
of those who were notified by the city
authorities have made their arrange

Central high school students and mem
bers of the faculty, who went down to
LeSueur Friday for tne state high
s-ehool oratorical contest are by no means
satisfied with the decision given in that
contest and there is some tiilk of a pro
test, due largely to suspicions aroused
by an apparently creditable display of
newspaper enterprise. The question de
bated was: "Resolved, That capital
punishment ought to be abolished in the

Clifford Menz and P. S. Campbell were
the St. Paul debaters; and Michael Doh

It is claimed by the St. Paul students
that as the audience was wending its
way homeward from ihe assembly hall
where the debate was held, the news
boys were crying an extra of the local
paper on the street. The extra contained
a full account of tiie debate and the de
cision of. the judges. St. Paul visitors
had nothing but admiration for this bit
of press enterprise, but what they
couldn't understand and what they ob
jected to was the fact tnat the extra
contained the arguments' used by the St.
Paul debaters. Under the most favorable
conditions, so the visiting debaters argue,
it would be- impossible, for the paper iv
question- to have those arguments taken
down in short hand, then transcribed
and up in type while the judges were
arriving at a decision and have the paper
out on the-^strett as the auuience was
leaving the hall. No specific charge has
been made, it is understood, but the St.
Paul students feel that all has not been
fair and above board. Prof. jjL T. Den

WAITING FOR BOARD TO ACT
Dr. Tomlinson, the Superintendent,
Is Blamed for Managing- the
Institution to Suit
The St. Peter asylum trouble is not
yet at an end, and several persons are
side-stepping at a very lively gait hopi-ig
to dodge the bricks that are likely to
fly if they should suddenly run out of
diplomacy, or the opposition should de
termine to push its advantage.
A prominent resident of St. Peter, in
St. Paul yesterday, said:
"To say that our citizens are abso
lutely disgusted with the situation and
■vwuihy at the latest antic of the board
of control, is to put it mildly. Just now
we are waiting to see if the board is
willing to make good iis claim that no
reflection on Mr. Rogers was intended
by publicly vindicating him. We knjw
absolutely that not only- is Mr. Roge.9
honest, but that he is thoroughly capable
and competent as an official, and that
not one honest criticism, justified by
facts, can be sustained against him, and
we know that it was not because of in
compotency or dishonesty that his ser
vices were dispensed with. We may
never be able to prove it, but we believe
that it was in line with a prearranged
"The entire trouble is owing to the
fact that Dr. Tomlinson is running
things to suit himself, and the board of
control is in his hands, or at least tafces
ts information from him unquestioningly.
Dr. Tomlinson was a most enthusiastic
supporter of the board of control bill,
Under the old meth< d he had found that
he could not always have his own way.
When things used to go wring, employes
of the institution went direct to the hos
pital board and said their say, and liad
matters righted. The board of control
h<<ii.s no one exoepc Dr. Tomlinson.
"We hope to find out after a whM-3
.iust where Dr. Tomlinson stands. W •
have had hard work getting him located
heretofore. Many good Republicans in
our town voted for John l.md in the
sure hope that if L>ind were elected Tom
linson would go. LJut Tomlinson, with
customary political shrewdness, was
there ahead of us, and as "an original
Lind man." landed on top just the same.
"Ever since the board of onirol took
charge of tilings Tomlinson has had
his own way. Whenever the board
< f control has been in St. Peter Mr. Tom
linson has been the only man consulted.
Rogers Bid Work Well.
■'Mr. Rogers was called in to act as
Steward against his own wish, urged to
take hold in order to straighten out a
bad tangle, because he was recognized
as the one man who could do this work
properly. All sorts of pledges were i
to him to get him to consent to take tt«
place, because they really needed his
services. Just as Boon as h<* had thinge
fn satisfactory condition he was no long
er wanted, and a way was found to ?«t
rid of him. Jt duos seem, however,
it' he was no longer wanted he could
have been got rid of without an insinua
tion being made on his honesty, and a re
flection being cast on iiis ability.
'If the board of control has any de
si! c to win back the regard of our peo
ple, the best thing they can do is to go
to the bottom of the management of
the asylum under Dr. Tomlinson and do
absolute justice, if they have to
the institution upside down. It may be
possible to keep this matter hushed uf
temporarily, but when the next legisla

NATIONAL BUTTER TEST
SECRETARY SIDEXDOUF EXPLAINS
Dairy Commissioner McCcnrell has re
ceived a letter from the secretary of the
National Creamery Butter-makers' asso
ciation ir. regard to the six months' na
tional butter contest. Among other
things, Mr. Sudendorf says: The six
months' educational contest is now as •
sured, and entry blanks will so^n be senti
to those who have applied, and to all
members in good standing 1 of the N. C.
B. association. The expense will be very
trifling, as the co-operation of the agri
cultural department of the United States
has beeh secured, and will furnish the
judge, and also buy the butter each
month at market price for extras, thus
enabling the association to remit prompt
ly the full price of the butter to p'acli
participant. Only one package will to
received from any one creamers'.
The agricultural department will store
at least four lots out of the six scorings
and have them resoored a month later to
ascertain their keeping quality.
The cost to each buttermaker will be
about ?3, which will be payable with
th<3 entry, or possibly It m.iy be deckled
to retain the price of the first month's
butter. At any rate, whatever remains
after defraying the expenses will be
returned to the participants either pro
rata or divided equally.
The size of the package will be a twen
ty-pound tub, either spruce or ash,
whichever is obtainable, and may be
sent J?y express or freight. prepaid,
whichever seems more desirable.
The expert will write to each exhibit
or each month, when his butter is at
fault and what he thinks the remedies
are. but the scores will not be published
until at the convention.
The association will present a beauti
ful championship <^up to the buttermnker
who has the highest a forage score for
six tests, but the pro r'ata fund now
on hand and the gold and silver medal
will be competed for as usual at the
sixth scoring, which takes place at the
next national convention. I call atten
tion to this, as under the constitution
our committee has no right to dispose
of that fund otherwise.
That there may be no misunderstand
ing, will say that the fact that a but
termaker is unable tr enter the six
months' contest does not bar him from
entering a tub at the sixth convention
The extra five months will be purely
educational, and 1 earnestly i
creamery whose buttersnaker wlshea to
entt>r this contest ta donate to him the
first twenty-pound tub of butter, so 'ft
may be to no personal expense, as his
creamery will be first and m>><t directly
benefited by any improvement he shoulil
make in his butter.
