EVOLUTION OF INDUSTRIAL ST. PAUL
Principal of the Central High
School Delivers an Address
at the Commercial Club, Un
der the Auspices of the Civic
League — Advocates Use of
Small Rivers of State to Gen
erate Power for Manufacto
There was a good attendance at the
meeting yesterday afternoon in the
parlor of the Commercial club, when
Dr. E. V. Robinson, principal of the
Central High school, talked about the
Industrial possibilities of St. Paul
Dr. Robinson is an enthusiastic be
liever in the present and future of
St. Paul and his suggestions as to pos
sibilities for industrial development
.■were evidently the result of much
study and thought.
He began his address by a short de
scription of the causes for cities being
located in certain places; natural lo
cations are those at the heads of rivers
or the termination of railroads, or
where there are beds of raw material.
In spite of the assertion of Judge El
liott, of Minneapolis, that St. Paul, as
a city, was merely an accident, Prof.
Robinson believes that it has the most
ideal location from every point of view
of any city In the Northwest. He
traced the rise of the industries of St.
Paul, recounted the wonderful increase
in the last dozen years and said he
could not understand why there should
be more flour and lumber made In
Minneapolis than in St. Paul, the fa-

This disease has been reported from

have been killed that were bitten or
known to be suffering from the disease,
nnd twelve head of cattle died as the re
sult of infection. Orders were issued
to the local health officers that dogs must

the owner's premises, prosecution to fol
low violation. This order is to be en
forced for three months.
Hog cholera was reported from eight
different counties. In the majority of
these the disease was confined to a single
outbreak. Infection was carried in three
cases by hogs imported from other states.

NEW YORK, Jan. 15.—The receipt
of $5,000,000 in gold from Japan within
the past three weeks is regarded as the
immediate result of the prospects of

VICE TRUST WORKS
It Tries to Secure Flour City
Girls for St. Louis
Minneapolis police officials are of the
opinion that the agents of the St. Louis
"vice trust" are operating a branch of
fice in Minneapolis, and are seeking to
fill the dives that will flourish during
the world's fair with young women and
girls lured from respectable homes un
der the promise of remunerative em
Although the authorities are without
definite information. It is known that
three weeks ago a man, claiming to be
engaging chorus girls for a "tent show"
in St. Louis, approached several girls
here andr succeeded in securing
promises of some to enter his com
Several of the twenty-one proprietors
of disorderly resorts on Hennepin ave
nue are^ known to have made offers to
send women to St. Louis, and it is al
leged that . some have even attempted
to persuade innocent girls into leading
a life of shame, under the guise of of
fering them good positions, which
would enable them to see the fair.
The manager of a "vaudeville ex
change" in this city was before Chief
of Police Conroy for several hours yes
terday afternoon in connection with the
case of a young girl who was ap
proached with an offer to go on the stage.
The girl, who is sixteen years of age,
was called to the "vaudeville exchange"
from the street, some two weeks ago,
by an employe of the place, who has
since left the city. He asked her if she
didn't want to "go out with a show,"
and made an engagement with her to re
turn on the following day.
Her parents would not permit her to
see him again, and the police did not
hear of the matter until yesterday,
when, in company with two detectives,
the girl was sent to the place.
This time she saw the proprietor,
who, after talking with her a few mo
ments and asking her age, advised her
to give up all thoughts of going on the
stage, and telling her to stay at home.
The man with whom she had first
talked evidently wanted to engage her
for a wine room in a Western city, for
he left Minneapolis about ten days ago

DESERTS HIS YOUNG WIFE.
Mrs. Leah Swartz Tells a Pathetic Story
in Divorce Court.
Judge Cray's divorce court yesterday
morning was the scene of a pathetic inci
dent, when Leah Swartz told -in broken
English of her devotion to Alter J.
Swartz and his desertion, which ended
the last chapter of a romance that began
in old Roumania.
Leah and Alter had been lover? since
they were children, in the far-off country
across the water, and when nearly twenty
years old the maid became his wife.
Finally the husband announced that he
was going to America to seek fame and
fortune, and the young wife decided to go
with him. They settled in Boston upon
their arrival in "the United States.
One evening Alter announced that he
was going out to pay the rent. He did
not return. With little money and alone
in a strange land with a child to care for,
the deserted wife and mother started in
search of her husband.
She went to New York, to Montreal, to
Detroit, to Chicago, to Milwaukee, to St.
Paul, and finally to Minneapolis, before
she found him. Her advent at the board
ing place of Swartz caused the greatest
surprise, as Swartz had always posed as
a single man.
When confronted by the mother of his
child he refused to recognize her or to
have anything to do with her, and she
has, for more than a year, worked in this
oity and supported the child and herself.
Judge Cray did not grant the decree of
divorce, but intimated that he would
