NEGROES ORDERED HIM
TO THROW UP HIS HANDS
G. L. Boynton Tells the Police of At-
"I've just been held up!" excitedly
exclaimed a man as he hurriedly en
tered the central police station about
1:30 o'clock this morning-. When he
had regained his composure sufficient
ly to tell his story tho tale he recited
was :ia follows:
"My name is G. 1.. Boynton, vice
president and general manager of the
C. A. Coates' Thread company, David
son block, and about fifteen minutes
ago, as I stepped off a Minneapolis
car and started up Sixth street to go
home, I was accosted by three negroes
in front of the Metropolitan opera
house and asked to throw up my hands.
The throats they made were horrible
and the names they called me were
vile, to say the least. I did not comply
with their request, and just at thai
time another negro came across the
street and interfered, saying: 'You
can't do anything' like that, boys. Come
away.' A policeman came around the
corner at this time and they ran away
In different directions. Now, I want a
policeman to go with me, or else give
me a gun and I'll go down there and
get those men myself."
The man was told that he could not
do anything in his excited condition,
and the police will investigate the mat
ter today. Mr. Boynton resides at 28

MANUAL TRAINING IS
URGED IN ALL
Committee of Principals of
City Schools Will Submit
an Exhaustive Report to
Board of Education Today
Recommending Such a
At its adjourned meeting tomorrow
the board of education will again have
its attention directed to the import
ant and insistent subject of indus
trial training In the schools. Annual
ly for some years past the board has
been urged, not only by the heads of
its -executive and educational staff, but
also by the commercial organizations
of the city, to expand this branch of
the school work and each year this
agitation has brought about some
measure of result.
The board has manifested its recog
nition of the importance of manual
training by yielding in each instance
to the extent which it considered was
warranted by the condition of its
finances; but still there is a strong
sentiment in favor of enlargement of
the scope of this branch of the school
The subject will be presented at this
time in the form of a report from a
special committee of school principals
appointed by Supt. Smith to thor
oughly investigate as to the workings
of the present system, and confer with
the principals and teachers as to their
ideas. The report is digested from the
information obtainable from the
. Miss B. M. Phelan, principal of the
Teachers' fraternity school, was chosen
by Mr. Smith for chairman of this
committee by reason of her interest
in the subject of industrial work and
her experience, and she selected to
act with her S. A. Farnsworth and Miss
E. B. Taylor.
The report is addressed to Supt.
Smith and was the principal subject
of discussion at the principals' meet
ing yesterday, where it aroused much
interest. After some introductory com
ment as to the importance of hand
training in school work the commit
tee says in its report:
'"In order to assist the committee in
arriving at a knowledge of the senti
ment of the St. Paul teachers with" re
gard to this subject the following ques
tions were formulated and principals
who have had the work in their schools
during the past year were asked to
answer for themselves and their
Questions Put to Principals.
"1. Shall manual training be intro
duced in all schools and in all grades?
"2. What should be the character of the
work in the primary grades? In the in
termediate grades? In the grammar
"3. What amount of time should be
devoted weekly to this work In the dif
"4. To what extent should it be under
the special care of a supervisor? Do we
need a supervisor for the primary indus
"5. Should the shop work in andaboye
the sixth grade be taught by a special
"On comparing answens to these ques
tions the committee finds that the ma
jority of those consulted are agreed on
the following points:
"1. That manual training should be

introduced in all schools and in all gTades.
In St. Paul, where the kindergarten is
so firmly established as a part of the sys
tem, and where the high schools provide
facilities for manual training 1, consistency
requires that in the grades between the
kindergarten and the high school there
Bhould be some provision for hand training
other than that supplied by writing and
"2. The character of the work must be
largely determined by the material and
equipment that can be obtained. In an
ideal course cooking should have a place,
but at the present time it does not seem
advisable to ask for the expenditure
necessary to introduce that branch. The
courne as laid out for the year, with slight
modifications, meets the approval of those
who have undertaken to follow it. Paper
folding and cutting stick-laying, card
board construction, clay modeling, rug and
hammock weaving, raffle-braiding and
sewing, and basketry are suitable for the
lower grades, and woodwork and sewing
for the higher.
Danger In Beginning Too Early.
"It i 3 thought by many that the sixth
grade is early enough to introduce sew
ing and woodwork. It is certain that
much of the new work attempted has
been placed too low in the course to be
practicable. The question is not what
children can do in the hands of an enthu
siastic expert, but what they should be
expected to do under normal conditions.
The bane of all our work is the haste
to get visible and tangible results, and
in no piace Is there greater temptation
to force children beyond their natural
capacity than in industrial work.
"Naturally there will be mistakes made
while the work is in the experimental
stage. Certain features will be unduly
emphasized and possibly other bn-.nehes
may be slighted by those v/ho are
anxious to make a show, but there Is little
danger from this source. Basketry, no one
will claim is an essential part of a course;
yet because of the suitable materials used
and the utility of the finished product, it
seems well adapted for fourth and per
haps fifth grades. In the fifth grade, more
attention can be given to form and design
than to the stitch. This is the only change
of importance that the committee recom
"3. Under present conditions one hour
weekly is considered sufficient for indus
"4. It is thought necessary to have
the sewing and woodwork supervised
about as at present. There should be some
one to plan the work in each branch and
to give instruction to teachers. Close
supervision is not desired; neither is there
sentiment in favor of supervision in the
lower grades. It is believed that a central

committee can lay out the work and
estimate the .quantity of material needed
and that the principals can give 'he ree
essary supervision. When, however. I|w
work is introduced, instruction should be
provided for the teacheig".
.N.C?d Special Teachers.
"5. Speck) teachers should be provided
for shop work in the seventh and eighth
grades. The woodwork in the eighth grade
can be done by the regular teachers, ea
well as the mechanical drawing in all
grades, but for the supervision of manual
training the principals and teachers all
argued that a special teacher is needed
In the advanced work.
"In addition to these questions the com
mittee considered various other phases of
the subject and consulted teachers In
other cities. Objections are made as to
the overcrowded course of study and tho
overworked teacher. Eliminate some of
the present requirements before adding
others, say some. In answer to 'what' and
'where' there is no agreement. Few will
ask that any subject now in the course
be dropped just as few will argue that re
sults in any subject are at all commen
surate with the time spent upon it. Those
who have had most experience with man
ual training are convinced that the time
given to it does not hamper the teacher
in other subjects."
"As to the overworked teacher, much
of the complaint is caused by the inexpe
rience of teachers. They do not know
how to do some of the work sufficiently
well, and they do not know how to plan
some of their lessons so as to conserve
their energy. A teacher who will try to
teach forty or fifty children how to begin
a basket or a rug will come to grief un
less she groups her class at the start.
After the first steps have been mastered
it is easy to direct the work of the whole
class. Any course of study that requires
the teacher to take this work home is
bad. The children should do it them
selves just as they should solve prob
lems in arithmetic themselves. The St.
Paul teachers will meet all these diffi
cuties as they have met others, and
after a fair trial will not find them insur
Cost Was Considered.
"'The committee also considered the
cost of carrying on the work In all the
grades as outlined. We have had the
experience so common in American cities
of introducing manual training in the
grades and dropping it at the first call
for economy in school administration. We
do not desire a repetition of that experi
ence. Let us then be moderate in our
demands. In the beginning the plants al
ready in the buildings should be utilized
.as far as possible and new equipment
provided for schools in other districts.
The Mechanic Arts and Central high
schools might accommodate the Franklin,
Jefferson. Madison. Jackson and McKin
ley schools, the Cleveland and Humboldt
high schools, the buildings on Arlington
hills and the West side respectively:
while one plant each on St, Anthony hill,!
Dayton's bluff. West Seventh street, Mer
riam Park, and Hamline, would provide
for those districts.
"If the plan of centralization is adopted
the high school teachers will probably be
willing to «Jo the work for additional
compensation, and one new teacher can
take care of the other districts."
The report closes with a recom
mendation that the board be requested
to authorize the introduction of manual
training in all grades of all schools,
and to appropriate for that purpose a
sum of money to establish this branch
on the lines contemplated in the fore
going portion of the report.
Owing to the fact that a considerable
amount would necessarily be required
for supplies and new equipment in the
nature of permanent improvements,
the appropriation at this time would
be greater than in future years for
the maintenance of the same system.
It is considered probable that the
first cost of installing the system will
run as high as $5,000, and perhaps even
exceed that sum, but these figures are

This is the first move that has been

of the week.
What the weak lines will do to retal

TELLS OF THOSE WHO

H. S. Fairchild Gives Inter
esting Account Before the
Historical Society of the
Early Real Estate Dealers
—Gen. Sanborn Becomes
President of the Society.
Gen. John B. Sanborn has been elect
by the executive council of the Min
nesota Historical society as president
of the organization to serve out the
unexpired term of Alexander Ramsey,
deceased. Gen. Sanborn was first vice
president of the society, and this ac
tion, taken at the regular meeting' of
last evening leaves a vacancy in that

office, which will probably not be filled
until the next regular meeting. The
society does not meet in the summer
months, and there will be no regular
meeting untit September.
Gen. Sanborn'3 term as president will
be almost the full three years, as the
last triennial election of officers took
place in February of the present year.
Everett H. Bailey, vice president of
the First National bank, of this city,
and a member of the society, was elect
ed to the executive council to fill the
membership in that body made vacant
by the death of Gov, Ramsey.
The meeting of last evening: was
notable from the presence of several
distinguished members of the society
from outside the city, among them be
ing Hon. Moses Armstrong, of St.
James; Gen. J. H. Baker, of Mankato,
and Gen. W. G. Le Due, of Hastings.
Resolutions were adopted inviting
Gen. Baker to prepare for the Sep
tember meeting a memorial address
upon the life and public services of
the late president of the society, Alex
ander Ramsey. There will also be sev
eral other addresses of which Gov.
Ramsey will be the subject.
Gen. Sanborn, as presiding officer,
decided that his election to the presi
dency had left vacant the chairman
ship of the committee on lectures, and
Rev. Edward C. Mitchell, of this city,
was chosen to fill that position.
One of the features of the general
meeting- of last evening was a bio
graphic sketch of Alexander Ramsey
prepared by Warren Upham, secretary
of the society, and presented by the
obituary committee, of which John D.
Ludden is chairman. In this paper the
author dwelt particularly upon the)
valuable service rendered by Gov.
Ramsey to the state in his stand upon
the sale of school lands. It was shown
that in securing the passage of a law
providing that school lands might not
be sold for less than $5 per acre in this
state Gov. Ramsey had made it pos
sible'that at this time the school fund
of Minnesota should be second only
to that of Texas. The present school
fund of this state is $15,300,000.
Tells of Early Dealers.
The chief address was by Henry 8.
Fairchild, under the title, "Random
Sketches of the Early History of Real
Estate in St. Paul." Mr. Fairchild has
been engaged j n the real estate business
here nearly fifty years. He spoke most
fully of the territorial period, previous to
the financial panic of 1857, his address
being in part as follows:
"No surveys of lands in Ramsey county
had been made prior to 1848, and all sales
of lands or lots were simply of "squatters'
claims." The situation was becoming
awkward. It was necessary to have sur
veys, that entries could be made, and
that the lands sold could be described
by section, township and range; that
towns should be platted, the plats re
corded and the tots described by num
ber of lot and block and name of plat.
"The government having made' surveys
in 1848, those having 'claims' in the nine
ty acres covered by the recorded plat of
the city of St. Paul, made by Ira B.
Brunson in 1847, appointed H. H. Sibley,
A. L. Larpenteur and Norman W. Kitt
son, as commissioners to bid off the
land at the first government land sale in
what is now Minnesota, made Aug. 14,
1848 at St. Oroix Falls, Wis. Accord
ingly, H. H. Sibley, for the commission,
surrounded by twenty or thirty lusty
fellows armed with bludgeons, as a warn
ing to all not to bid against him, bought
what is now "St. Paul Proper," as we
call it, for the minimum government
price of $1.25 per acre. Soon afterward
he and the other commissioners, Larpen
teur and Kittson, made the apportion-
merit In lots and blocks to the claimants;

paper, as Lawyer and Land Agent, and
he acted as agent of Whitney and Smith

next month, July, B. F. Irvine advertises

the next month, August, W. D. Phillips'
card as Lawyer and Land Agent appears;
and, on Nov. 14, A. V. Fryer's card. -
Hope for W. P. Murray.
"Soon afterward William P. Murray's
card appears as agent for sale of Louis
Robert's realty, and so he is entitled to
the high honor of having once been a
real estate agent. As he was here prac
ticing law at that early day, it is prob
able that in the 'great day of reckoning'
he will be held accountable for having
examined and passed some of the defec
tive titles referred to in this paper. Let
us hope that, because he was once a real
estate agent, and always a loyal and
steadfast friend of St. Paul, St. Peter will
accept this as a plea in mitigation, and
that, though it be 'with a tight squeeze,!
as with the Dutch miller who took unjust
tolls but gave something to the poor, he
will let Murray in.
"Returining to the not very important,
but much-discussed question as to who
was the first agent, I will say that if
anyone can claim priority in that line over
Lambert, it would be B. F. Hoyt or 'Fa
ther Hoyt,' as we all called him. Mr.
Hoyt came here in 1848, .and, as the boys
say, very soon 'pitched in' as speculator
and land and loan agent. He platted 'Su
burban Hills,' Hoyt's addition, and Hoyt's
out lots, bought and sold thousands of
feres near the city, and narrowly escaped
becoming a millionaire. He once told me
that he 'had three times been saved from
being a millionaire by the grace of God.'
He may have felt "really and truly' grate
ful for 'this great salvation,' but we are
sometimes unconsciously self-deceived.
Early Settlers Were Great.
"Time and again I have been struck
with the fact that a large percentage of
our pioneers, the men who have figured in
our history in 1849-53. were men of
markedly superior abilities.

picture of the panic in the latter part of

the subsequent vast growth of this city.
