ST. PAUL HAS REAL
New Theater Opens With a
Grand Double Bill to Stand
ing Room Only.
"Ticket Office. Tickets Five Cents."
The above sign crudely painted on a
dry goods box at the head of an alley
leading off Wabasha street, between
Summit and College avenues, indicated
that the sale of seats for the first per
formance of the Junior Amateur Dra
matic company was on, and the crowds
of boys and girls who crowded about
the ticket office with their ready nick
els gave out the impression that the
company was doing a rushing busi
The occasion was the production of
the "grand double bill" put on by the
juvenile actors in the barn at the rear
of 570 Wabasha street, where an im
promptu theater had been fitted up in
the loft. The double bill consisted of
"Terrible Tower," a farce in one act,
and "Simon Says Wig-Wag," a farce
comedy in two acts. James Cormican,
the water boy at the Metropolitan
theater, is at the head of the company
which yesterday gave the first of
a series of theatricals in their theater
in the little barn.
Long before the curtain went up the
'gjrls and boys climbed the stepladder
leading up to the auditorium, and when
the show was finally commenced after
a short delay occasioned by trouble
with the drop curtain, the "standing
room only" sign was out.
'You see this is our first perform
ance, and we will do better hereafter,"
explained the press agent. "We Sid
pretty good, though, because we sold
almost $5 worth of tickets. On August
11 we will put on "Broken Promises,"
a play written and staged by Jimmie
Cormican. We will have twelve peo
jple in the cast and will have to en
large our stage."
A call from behind the scenes for the
press agent to assist in removing the
burnt cork from one of the actors who
had finished his part, took the lad
away, and The Globe man was left
to watch the performance surrounded
by half a hundred youngsters ranging

Th& West Side Improvement associ
ation takes exceptions to the proposed
issue of $200,000 improvement bonds
by the city council.
Last night at the instance of F. B.
Doran, former Republican mayor, an 4
also state president of the organiza
tion, the following resolution was
'Resolved, That we unanimously and
emphatically protest against the pro
posed issue of $200,000 in bonds which
is now under consideration by the city
council, believing that it would be un
wise to add to our interest bearing in

cording to the city comptroller's report
for 1902, exceeds $400,000."
None of the members could see
where the issue would materially re
duce the tax levy as announced by
those fathering the issue.
Some of them asserted that the issue
was for the purpose of spending money
on the fire department.

SCHOOL BOARD. SAYS
WORK MUST BE DONE
Orders Completion of Heating
Plant in McKinley Building
by Its Own Force.
Since the Roberts-Goss company has
positively refused to complete the
work which has been demanded by the
board of school inspectors in fulfill
ment of the firm's contract for the
heating plant at the McKinley school,
the board has undertaken, the work it
self with its own employes. The cost
will be deducted from the unpaid porr
tion of the original contract price
which the board retained as a guaran
The heating apparatus which was
put in the McKinley school under the
Roberts-Goss company's contract op
erates by what is known as the indi
rect method, whereby the heat is cir- '■
culated by means* of fans. This has
been found, the members of the board
declare, to be insufficient to heat the
rooms evenly and to a sufficient tem
perature, and it was demanded of the
company that it be supplemented by
the addition of a system of direct radi
ation. That the company refused to
do without additional pay.
Consultation with architects and
other experts has convinced the mem
bes of the board that the terms of the
contract have not been fulfilled and
consultation with the city attorney has
convinced them that the contract can
be legally enforced. Therefore George
Gerlach, superintendent of buildings,
has been directed by the board to per
form the work that* is desired with the
assistance of the engineers in the em
ploy of the board, and it was begun
yesterday. A complete system of radi
ators will be put into the building in
addition to the indirect system, and it
is estimated that this work will cost
The board still retains $1,500 of the
original contract price as a guarantee,
and an estimate of $300 which has not
yet been approved.

The promoters of the manufacturing
establishment desire that the St. Paul
business men raise $50,000, or half the

Representatives of the projected
factory appeared before the members
of the Chamber of Commerce yester
day afternoon and explained the plan
of the company and the reason for the
promoters desiring to locate in St.
St. Paul. The company's proposition
was met with considerable enthusiasm
and it is possible that the required,
amount of stock will be taken by St.

HOUSE MOVERS TIE UP
STREET CAR LINES
Second Case of the Kind This Month
and More of the Kind Are Promised.
Belated travelers, who customarily
patronize the Selby and Merriam Park
lines, walked this morning between the
hours of 1 and 8 o'clock. At Grotto
street and Selby avenue a house was
being moved across the tracks, and
this was assigned as the cause of the
five hours' tie-up. .
If some of the house movers are to be
believed these tie-ups will be frequent
in the future. Because of the big of
fice building to be erected at Wabasha
and College streets a number of the
frame structures in that locality are
to be moved to other parts of the cfty,
and every one of them will cross the
tracks of some car line. This is the
second time this month a car line has
been put out of service for almost an
entire night because of a house to be
moved and complaints are heard in
consequence. It is asserted that the
buildings could be moved in one-half
the time consumed.

THE VAST MAJORITY
Pioneer Educator of St. Paul Dies at
His Home in Boston.
Benjamin Drew, aged ninety-one
years, formerly active in educational
work in St. Paul, died yesterday at his
home in Plymouth, Mass. The Benja
min Drew school, on Lafond street,
was named after him in honor of his
work as a pioneer educator.
Not only as an educator, but as an
author, is he known. A large number
of articles contributed to periodicals
are from his pen, as well as "Pens and
Types," a text book for printers and
writers, and "The Northern Side of
GRADING OE HUDSON
Aldermen Show a Disposition to Give P.
H. Kelly a Chance.
P. H. Kelly and his troubles with the
grading of Hudson avenue were given a
slight rest last night, when the board
of aldermen referred the whole matter to
the committee on streets.
The proposition to refer was made by
Aid Dobner and was on the under
standing that Mr. Kelly secure the con
sent of the property owners along the
street, and also the necessary lines and
grades from the city engineer before do
ing, any further work.
Members of the board say they, visited
the alleged quarry and found it to be a
less serious matter for protest than al
leged. At the meeting last night T. D.
O'Brien represented Mr. Kelly. Robert
Seeger spoke for the Second Ward Im
provement association, which is protest
ing against the grading of the street.
TO ISSUE Of BONDS
There Are Indications That the
Assembly Minority Is Weak
ening in Opposition.
The proposed issue of $200,000 in im
provement bonds is now up to the as
sembly. The board of aldermen gave
its approval to the measure authorizing
the issue last night.
While there are three Republicans
in the body, Aid. Holt, Elder and
Corning, not a dissenting voice was
heard when the vote, was called, and
Vice President Bantz, at the close, was
able to announce the full three-fourths
vote, as required by law.
Rumor has credited the Republican
minority in the assembly with being a
unit in opposition to the issue, but
there are prospects that the solid front
will be broken. Where there were four
votes announced against the issue two
weeks ago-, the number has dwindled
down to two, and even these may be
brought over before the time arrives.
Assemblyman Schurmeieri at first
strongly opposed to the issue, has
come over, and it is understood that he
has been followed by Assemblymen
Rosen and "Wheeler, heretofore strong
ly opposed to the issue.
The bonds mean a heavy reduction
in the tax levy next year and this one
feature is having a strong influence on
THE PUBLIC BATHS
Find an Interesting Study in the Great
Work Being Done There.
Sociological theories as demonstrat
ed by Health Commissioner Ohage
in his life's effort, the public baths,
formed an interesting subject for the
members of the Catholic Sumrhei
school yesterday afternoon.
They wandered all over Harriet,
watched the youngsters in bathing and
took note of everything interesting.
The members of the school were much
pleased with the visit.
Dr. Walsh, of New York, lectured
last night at the Catholic Chautauqua
on "Pasteur," of whose method he is
an ardent admirer and disciple. He
gave a very interesting account of the
great Catholic scientist and discover
ies in vivisection.
This morning's session will introduce
a new speaker, Thomas Bonaventure
Lawler. M. A.^ of New York city, a
successful lecturer and author. Mr.
Lawler will give three lectures at the
Chautauqua, on the subjects. "India,"
"Japan" and "The Philippines,"
speaking this morning on "India."
Each lecture will be illustrated with
views taken by Mr. Lawler while trav
eling in the countries of the East.
These lectures represent an effort to
convey important information con
cerning the people of the Orient in a
highly entertaining way.
Mr. Lawler graduated at Holy Cross
college, Worcester, Mass., in 1885. He
subsequently took courses in Sanskrit
and classical philology, In 18.92 he was
elected a member of the,, American
Oriental society and of tjie ..Archaeo
logical Institute of America. N .He has
traveled in all parts of fh'e world and
has made a special study/of, -Oriental
people and countries.. Ip 1900-02 he
took a journey around the world, and
since his return has lectured in man^r
of the Eastern cities on the life, man
ners, customs and problems of the 1
people he visited and studied.

A Record Breaker.
It is said that the greatest and quickest
permanent advertising success on record
is that of Cascarets, Candy Cathartic,
which have been persistently advertised
in every- way. but chiefly in newspapers,
for about six years. In that time the sale
of Cascarets has grown- from nothing to
over one million boxes a month. This
wonderful record is the result of great
merit successfully made known. Those
who tried Cascarets as a direct result of
advertising, were pleased and recommend

fame was spread to become universal.
