In the neighborhood of 100 of tht
commissioned officers of the state
guard attended the session and there
was quite a display of uniforms with
out sword attachments.
Gov. Vant Sant made an address in
which he promised that he would re
appoint Adjutant General Libbey and
informed the officers that nothing
would give him greater pleasure than
to lead the Minnesota brigade to the
St. Louis exposition.
Just where the money for the trip
of the- brigade was to come from the
commander-in-chief did' not ,say, but
later in the session of the associa
tion it was brought out that the bri
gade would be mobilized at Lake City,
a day previous to the date of starting
for St. Louis and instead of having
an encampment in 1904 the guard
would spend the appropriation on the
St. Louis trip.
Gen. H. Quinton, who before his
retirement from the regular army,
commanded" the Fourteenth infantry
during the trouble in China, # read an
interesting paper on his experience in
Maj. George C. Lambert, chairman of
the executive committee, submitted a
report recommending that the legisla
ture be asked for an appropria*l23
sufficient to maintain the camp and
buildings at Lake City and provide for
a permanent storehouse at that point.
The committee recommended that the
annual inspection at camp be con
tinued; examinations should be held
for non-commissioned officers; that a
dress uniform would be advisable simf

A resolution by Col. Van Duzee re
questing the adjutant general to pre

The fact that regimental and com
pany commanders draw heavily on
their personal resources for incidental
expenses caused the adoption of a
resolution requesting the legislature to
set aside annually $50 for brigade
headquarters; $200 for regimental
headquarters; $TSO for; artillery headr
quarters and $100 for company com

Favored Camp Inspection.
Col. Bobleter, Col. Van Duzee and
Gen. Bend all favored. inspection at the
annual encampment and the motion to
continue the inspections was carried
by an overwhelming vote.
Col. Van Duzee introduced a resolu
tion to the effect that it was the
sense of the meeting that the guard
should have a distinct uniform, for
Maj. Wright, of Austin, and Maj.
Corriston, of Minneapolis, opposed
having any distinctive state unifprm.
Maj. Lambert favored a uniform for
dress occasions like the proposed trip
to St. Louis. Capt. O. E. Lee said the
Minnesota guard .had been compli
mented on its appearance in Chicago
in 1593 and did not favor a dress uni
form. The motion offered by Col. Van
Duzee was laid on the table.
Gen. Bend, however, came to the
front at once with a resolution call
ing for a service uniform and dress
similar to that of the regular-army,
but that no action be taken until the
regulars had decided on what they
would wear. Gen. Bend informed the
association that there was $5,000 left
in the uniform fund for this year ana
by this time next year there would be
enough money on hand to get both ser
vice and dress uniforms for each mem
ber of the guard.
Money Not Spent Goes to State.
This statement brought out the fact
that unexpected balances were not car
ried over by the state auditor and if
the money was not spent in one year
it was turned over to the general fund.
"Auditor-elect Iverscn told me differ

"Well, I know different," replied
Adjt. Gen. Libbey, "because I have

cured the passage of a, resolution ap

He suggested that the encampment
next summer could be cut short one
day, and the funds taken to pay the
expenses of the team.
Started a Storm.
This suggestion raised a storm of
protest, but after some explanation the
suggestion was adopted, Col. Van Du
zee saying there would be a way found
of raising the money.
Two attempts were made to amend
the by-laws so as to increase the ex
ecutive committee from seven to eight
members by allowing the president to
appoint an additional member from the
governor's staff. The point was made
that Adjt. Gen. Libbey was a member
of the executive committee and also a
member of the governor's staff, and
appreciated by Health Commissioner

Capt Bennett, of Company B, First
artillery, wanted 25 cents paid to each
enlisted man who attended drills. This
would mean only about $16,000 a year,
and it would help the guard considera
bly. Gen. Bend opposed it, saying that
the appropriation of about $60,000 from
the state had been secured only by
bringing the argument to bear that
the members of the guard gave their
valuable time for nothing. He feared
the adoption of the suggestion would
work against any increased appropria
tion. The question of placing the prop
osition in the hands of the executive
committee was carried by a close vote.
Adjt. Gen. Libbey thanked the mem
bers for the assistance given him, and
said that, while he was not present

The letters were returned by the

Said That a Woman Was Dead in

The first note, which was published
by the afternoon papers in Minneapolis
Friday, announced, that the body of a
woman had been found in Central park
—that the woman had evidently been
frozen to death—-tttat she was" clad in
black from head to foot, and was ap
parently about twenty-five years of
No such woman had been found, but
it was- considered that she who left the
note at the newspaper offices complete-,
ly filled the description given of the
supposed suicide, and watch was kept
on the park in order that the myste
rious person might be apprehended in
case she appeared.
Yesterday another note was deliv
ered in which was the announcement
apparently written by the same hand
as the previous note, that a woman
had been found dead in the court
house tower. The description given of
.the. dead woman was practically like
that in the preceding notice, except
that in the former a black astrakhan
coat was said to have been worn by
Johnny Olsen Gets In.
The note yesterday was delivered by
a messenger boy named Johnny Olsen.
The youngster declared that it had
been handed to him by a man in the
postQffice. This man, he declared, had
been talking to another man and wom
an. Olsen said he had been given 25
cents' to- deliver the message.
A reporter was isent with the boy to
overhaul the trio» but they had dis
appeared from the postofHce. Later
they were seen waiting for an interur
ban car at Third street and First ave
nue. All three denied that they had
ever seen the boy before or that any
note had been written by either of
them. The boy insisted the contrary.
While awaiting, the car the. elder o£
the men wrote something in a note
book, afterwards tearing out the leaf.
When they had boarded the car the
younger man and the woman went In
side while the older man remained on
the rear platform. As the car pulled
out he threw the note he had written
off, the car. It was picked up by the
reporter, who read:
"Cut this out. Let well enough
alone. I am looking after her and there
will be nothing doing."
The man who wrote the note was
about fifty years of age. He was short
three fingers on his right hand, was
lame and walked with a ~ heavy cane.
The other man was younger—about
twenty-five years old. He took no part
in the conversation.
The woman was about thirty years
old, wearing a sealskin sacque, a brown
cloth skirt and tan gloves. She was a
brunette, handsome and apparently
a woman of refinement. During the
colloquy between the reporter and her

Big Engine In Third Avenue Power Station
Broke Down Christmas Eve.
Explanation of the collapse in the
Street railway service on Christmas eve
has just developed. The big 1,200 horse
power engine at the Third avenue. Rower
Station in Minneapolis broke down unex
pectedly and put the service in oven
worse shape than it had been before the
new Selby avenue engine was started.
Nothing could have oe3n more unex
pected. There had been nothing wrong
with the engine so far as expert eyes
could tell until an hour or two before
it gave out. Immediately thereafter the
resources of the company in the matter
Tit power were reduced to 200 horse power
less than had been available before the
new Selby engine went into service. It
fs appalling to think what would have
happened if the Jatter engine had not
been ready for use.
A large gang of machinists and en
gineers has been at work at night and
day on the engines ever since this latest
trouble occurred. The new 1,200 horse
power engine being erected in Minneapo
lis for supplementary power will be ready
for use before the broken^down machine
can be repaired. The new engine will
mostly likely start up tomorrow. It is
believed that the other large engine will
have been repaired within a week.

HAVE YOU ANY OF THESE
Symptoms of a Very Common Trouble?
There is no disease so common in the
United States as catarrh because it ap
pears in so many forms and attacks so
many different organs. __
It is a common mistake to suppose that
catarrh is confined to the nose and throat.
Any inflammation of the mucous mem
brane wherever located, accompanied by
abnormal secretions, Is catarrh. Catarrh
of stomach or bladder, or intestines is
nearly as common as nasal catarrh a~nd
much more serious, although it is trua
that stomach catarrh and catarrh of other
internal organs is the result 'of neglected
A new remedy has recently appeared
which so far as tested seems to be re
markably effective in promptly curing
catarrh, wherever located. The prepara
tion is sold by druggists generally under
name of Stuart's Catarrh Tablets and in
addition to being very palatable and con
venient, possesses extraordinary merit, in
many cases giving immediate relief from
the coughing, hawking and constant clear
ing of the throat and head, those symp
toms with which everyone is familiar who
has ever suffered from colds in the head
Catarrh is simply a continuation of
these symptoms until the trouble becomes
chronic and gri#ws gradually worse from
year to year.
Stuart's Catarrh Tablets are composed
of Blood root, red gum and similar anti
septics and catarrh specifics, from which
it will be seen that no secret is made of
the ingredients and also that no mineral
poisons "are used, as is the case with
many well known catarrh medicines.
For catarrh of the nose, throat, bron
chial tubes, for catarrh of stomach, in
testines or bladder no preparation is so
safe and gives such rapid and permanent
results as Stuart's Catarrh Tablets.
All druggists sell them at 50c for full
sized package. You can use them with
assurance that you will not contract the
cocaine op morphine habit as the results
from this catarrh cure are apparent from
the first day's use.
