The general fruit list for next year
was presented by a committee consist
ing of Clarence Wedge, of Albert Lea;
J. P. Andrews, of Faribault, and Prof.
SI B. Green, of the state experimental
station. The horticulturists did not
agree with the committee on all points,
but in recognition of the authority and
knowledge of the committee, the re
port was adopted, after discussion,
Wyman Elliot, speaking for the com
mittee on awards, pointed out the mer
its and defects of the seedling apples
on exhibition. O. M. Lord urged the
planting- of only the best trees. Fads',
he said, must be ignored. The gTeat
danger was that time and money was
wasted upon varieties of fruit that
would prove unfitted for this climate.
Alfred Terry, of Slayton, said the
duty of horticulturists was not only
the cultivation of the best fruits avail
able, but. the fostering of public sen
timent in favor of ornamental gardens
and flower beds.

Judge Jaggard yesterday heard the tes
timony in the suit brought by John Krohn
against Jacob Leuthold Jr., in which the
plaintiff asks for $1,000 damages for the
alleged failure of the defendant to abide
by a lease of the basement rooms in the
Globe building. Krohn leased the rooms
for a barber shop, but claims they were
not fitted up in the manner agreed to,
and as a result he was unable to occupy
them. He sues for $1,000.

F. P. CLARK, WHOSE AFFAIRS
GAVE HIM NOTORIETY IN MIN
NEAPOLIS, OCCUPIES CELL
WAS A LUMBER
KING TWENTY YEARS AGO
Falls From Position and Loses WeaUh
Through Connection With a Woman
Whose House Was Blown Up With
Dynamite—Penniless and Crazed He
Ragged, penniless and demented,
with unkempt hair and beard, whitened
by sixty years' successful work and
then absolute failure, F. P. Clark, who
at one time was reckoned, among the
wealthiest men in Minneapolis, and
whose affection for a St. Louis woman,
whom he broug-ht North with him,
caused trouble in his family, which
culminated in the blowing up of the
woman's house with dynathite, now oc
cupies a cell in the county jail awaiting
commitment to Rochester.
Twenty years ago Clark was one of
the Minneapolis lumber kings. He
owned a large mill, extensive pine hold
ing in Northern Minnesota, and some
fine stock farms, the largest at Anoka.
His wealth was then estimated at
$200,000. He was accounted one of the
substantial business men of the city
on whose prospects of continued suc
cess and increasing wealth fortune had
cast none but rainbow shadows. While
fortune smiled upon him he was noted
for his open-handed generosity, his
spirit of good fellowship, his lote of
high living, of style, distinction.
His extensive operations in lumber
took him on business trips of varying
length to St. Louis. There he formed
the acquaintance of a woman, remark
able for her beauty and engaging man
ners. Although a man of family he
persuaded her to accompany him to
Minneapolis, where she established a
Dynamite Is Resorted To.
But the intervention in the family of an
alien met only with a storm of wrath
and a bitterness of feeling which culminat
ed one night in the destruction by dyna
mite of the woman's house.
A short time after that his mill burned
down. He rebuilt and the panfc of 1893
catching him afoul forced him to the wall.
His mill was sold to David Clough; his
pine holdings were lost and his stock
farms went with them. Clark attempted
a lumber brokerage business and failed.
He was buyer for the Northern Pacific
for a time, but constant brooding de
•stroyed his mind and drove him finally
into the very gutter. '
Since his incarceration in the county
jail Wednesday afternoon Clark has re
fused to touch the food offered him, and
continually talks of his wealth and his
acquaintance and association with; the
financial kings of the world.
During the past few years Clark la said
to have been living with a son in Grand
- A few days- ago he applied to Relief.
Agent Hutchins for aid and was cared
for temporarily. Tuesday ne was arrested
by Sergeant Call for begging on the
streets and taken to the central police
station, and later when it was learned
that he was demented he was removed to
the county jail, where he will be kept until
his children can be heard from or his
legal residence determined. One of hi 3
daughters lives in Milwaukee and both
she and the son in Grand Rapids have
been notified of their, father's condition.
Laboring under the delusion that he is
buying lumb"er_for the Great Northern
at a salary of $50,000 a year. Clark yes
terday told his story to a Globe man
who visited him at the jail.
Imagines He Is Rich.
"There is a big mistake somewhere,"
said Clark. "I don't know why I am
here, because I am wealthy and I have a
contract to buy lumber for the Great
Northern at $50,000 a year. Just as soon
as Mr. Hill returns from a conference with
J. Pierpont Morgan I am to get $100,000
a year for my services, and then I am go
ing to have an automobile to ride about in
and look after my business."
On account of his refusal to eat the
food offered him since he has been locked
up the old man's physical condition has
become such that it was necessary to call
a physician yesterday afternoon.
No reply had been received last night
to messages sent his eon and daughter,
and unless some word is received today
Clark will probably be sent to the asylum
M'KINLEY SCHOOL IS
STILL A BIT CHILLY
Four Hours' Firing Raises Temperature
to Only Seventy Degrees and
Trouble Is Expected.
By starting the fires at 4 o'clock and
using plenty of coal, the fireman at the
McKinley school building yesterday morn
ing wa3 able to furnish sufficient steam
to heat the rooms in the eastern part of
the structure to a temperature of seven
ty degrees by 8 o'clock. The rooms in
the west end of the building were not at
that temperature until after 10 o'clock.
The trouble appears to be that there
is not sufficient radiation surface in the
building, and before the plant is chang
ed there promises to be a lively discus
sion as to whose duty it is to make the
Clarence H. Johnson, the architect of
the building, it is said, recommended the
system and plant which was placed in
the schools. The Roberts-Goss company
claim they followed the plans and spe
cifications and not only put in 8,000 feet
of 1-inch steam pipe which the contract
called further, but went further and put
in TIC feet more.
The * complaint now made is that the
capacity of the plant to furnish steam
for the' building is exhausted and in or
der to properly heat the structure, addi
tional pipes mu3t he put in. The build
ing committee of the school board and
tha supervising architect. Charles Bass
ford, will have a conference with the
corporation attorney today to ascertain
whether the contractor cannot bo com
pelled to put in more radiation.
fii the meantime, if the weather cntin
ues moderate, the building can he heated
so aa to allow the school to remain open,
but if there should come a cold snap tho
pupils would have to !>e dismissed.
J. D. Roberts, of the Roberts-Goss com
pany, who had the contract for putting
in the plant, was not in the city yester
day, but a clerk stated that he would be
bask from Montana, tomorrow and then
the company would have a statement to
make concerning the matter.

Last night at the instance of How

finding to the two council bodies. The
committee is to consist of two mem
bers from each body and three from
the voters at large.
Franchises in other cities are to be
inquired into, the conditions they im
pose, what the cities granting- them
obtain in the shape of recompense and
all other details. At - the same time
what conditions St. Paul can lawfully
impose are to be investigated. The
franchise of the St. Paul Gas Light

the members want to be prepared
when that time arrives.

"JIM THE PENMAN"
Boy Once Indicted for Forgery Is
Again Arrested on the Same
Frank A. Farrell, the eighteen-year
old son of H. Farrell, who con
ducts a cigar business in the city hall,
was arrested yesterday on a charge of
forgery. When arraigned in the mu
nicipal court in the afternoon he plead
ed not guilty a"nd was taken to the
county jail. .
It is cha'rgedj that young Farrell
signed the name of Miller & Holmes,
grocers, to 4 check en the Second Na
tional bank for $41.23 and cashed it at
the grocery store of C. A. Pearson, 919
East Seventh street. A complaint
charging him with forgery in the first
degree will .'be iiled by County Attor
ney Kane todayv
Some months ago Farrell, who is but
a boy, forged.a check on which he se
cured $42. He was indicted by the
grand jury and later pleaded guilty,
Judge Brill imposing a sentence of one
year in the reformatory. On account
of Farrell's age, however, the sentence
was suspended and Farrell was allow
ed his freedom after having been lec
tured by the court. When arrested
yesterday, two hours after the check
had been cashed, Farrell had $32 of the
money on his person.

GAS COMPANY BIDS
Contract With Another Company Gives
Rival the Scst Of
Art odd feature of the bids recently re
ceived by the council is that the St. Paul
Gas Light company was bested by the
Cleveland Vapor Light company In its
.bid for lighting the city with gas. The
ga3 company Md $25 for the lamp com
plete or $16 for gas delivered at the base
of the post. The Cleveland company sup
plemented this -with a price of $10.50 for
the laran and its maintenance, which
would apake a rate of $26.50 complete.
Combining both gas ana gasoline the
Western Street Lighting company is just
18 cents a lamp ur\£er its rival, the Cleve
land company. On the entire contract,
which amounts to about $121,000. the city
would make a saving- of about $800. On
the gasoline lighting alone the Chicago
company bid is just $3,979 lower than that
of the Cleveland concern.
Engfneer Rundlett Wants Them Legalized

Because of the extremely ornamental
character of some of the electric signs
Mr. Rur.dlett says he does not care to
enforce the law, whicn prohibits them.
However, he "wants the council to legal
