AGENTS TALK BOOKS
School Board's Text Book Com-
mittee Listens to Many,
The text book committee of the
board of school inspectors yesterday
listened to arguments from representa
tives of more than thirty of the book
concerns offering to furnish text books
lor the next three years.
One agent was called in at a time and
allowed to explain in detail the advan
tage possessed by his books. It was
agreed by the members, previous to
the meeting, that no agent would be
allowed more than fifteen minutes.
.Throughout the afternoon the com
mitteemen listened with considerable
patience to the arguments, some of
which favored the retention of the
books now in use and others ;he adop
tion of new books. Throughout the
agents preserved the utmost good na
ture, and as each one retired into the
waiting room, where were gathered the
remainder of the agents, he was greet
ed by applause and laughter. A couple
of the firms were represented by wom
en, a.nd they argued with great ear
nestness in favor of their firms.
.The agents were received in the or
der in which the bids had been opened
and were allowed to talk. Many of the
agents did not CQRSttfne more" than
one-third o£ -the" time alloted. Nearly
all we» e apparently familiar with the
_9°S<!rtions in the schools and did not
urge radical changes.
The text book committee will pre
pare its report, for the board of school
inspectors and will submit it at the
June meeting unless a special meeting
of the board should be called for the
purpose, as it will be impossible to re
port at today's meeting of the board.
OFFERS CITY $2,000 FOR
SITE ON WEST SIDE
St. Paul White Lead and Oil Compa
ny's Proposition Favorably Received.
The offer of the St. Paul White Lead
and Oil company to give the city $2,000
for the site that it now occupies on the
West side was yesterday placed in the
hands of Assemblyman Rosen by the
■assembly committee on streets.
Messrs. Arnold and Schurmeier
thought the offer should be accepted,
and Mr. Rosen agreed that the city
would be the gainer. At present the
company pays $1 a year for the lease,
which runs for twelve years, and figur
ing the interest on the money and the
taxes that will be collected on the
property during the time, Mr. Rosen
thought the city should make the deal.
A petition of a number of property
owners that the east ten feet of Water
street be vacated was favorably report
ed by the committee.
The vacation of that portion of Par
iiell rtreet lying south of Colorado

Pentecostal Association Ap
proves Action of Conference
Methodist ministers in attendance
upon the monthly meeting of the Min

King Street Methodist church in St.
Paul yesterday, indorsed the action of
the Methodist general conference at
Los Angeles in refusing to recede from
the position long held by the church
against card playing, dancing and
The conference was asked to remove
article 248 from the discipline of the
church and inculcate its provisions in
the "special advices." The national
gathering refused to "Jet down the
bars," as one of the ministers at the
Pentecostal meeting yesterday put it.
The Rev. Peter Clare, presiding elder
of the Mankato district, took strong
grounds commendatory of the action of
the conference, and he was followed by
other ministers who coincided with his

ed the best thought of the Methodist
church," said Rev. H. F. Ackerman.
pastor of the King street church, "and
as the Pentecostal association is a body
of Methodist ministers who believe in
entire sanctification, we especially are
glad that the conference took no such
step as contemplated, for it would have
resulted in removing from church trial
and possible expulsion those guilty of
indulging in these dissipations."
The sessions of the Pentecostal asso
ciation continued during the day and
evening, the speakers being Rev. Peter
Clare, Rev. A. A. Graves, of Anoka,
and Rev. G. G. Valentine, of the Park
Avenue Methodist church, Minneapolis.
Some ten ministers and quite a large
number of the Methodist people of
St. Paul and Minneapolis attended the
three meetings of the association dur
ing the day and evening.
The announcement was made at the
evening session of evangelistic meet
ings at Red Rock, beginning June 23
and continuing until July 5. Rev. H.
C. Morrison, of Louisville, Ky., will be
the principal speaker at the series of
meetings, and the annual - election of
the Pentecostal association will be held
at that time.

IN VAN SANT'S HANDS
JTJ. Sutton Says He Will Try to Have
Contrary to expectations, there was
no decision by Gov. Van Sant yester
day in the Greeley Carr case, In which
J. J. Sutton is seeking to have the
county attorney of Marshall county re
moved from office. The governor last
night took the files in the case, in
cluding the opinion of Attorney General
Donahower, home with him, and said
he expected to be able to reach a de
cision in a day or two.
Sutton called on the governor yester
day, and after an interview said he had
little hope that the governor's findings
would result in Carr's removal from
"It doesn't make any special differ
ence what ifte governor does, for I have
determined to carry my charges to an
other tribunal. I shall make formal
charges against Carr with Eli South
worth, secretary of the state board of
examiners in law, and seek to have him
disbarred. I also intend to lay the case
before the Marshall county grand jury
when it convenes in a few weeks, and
the county attorney will have to defend
himself before both bodies."
DEPARTMENT OF DAKOTA
GETS BIDS FOR FUEL
Contracts to Be Awarded Call for Ex-

Gen. C. C. C. Carr, commander of
the Department o£ Dakota, yesterday
received from Col. John McE. Hyde,
chief quartermaster, recommendations
for the awarding of contracts for fuel
supplies for the department for the
fiscal year ending June 30, 1905.
The contracts represent an outlay of
over $50,000, which will be distributed
among the successful bidders. Com
petition for the contracts was very
keen, forty-three dealers, of St. Paul,
Minneapolis and points in the North
.west, having submitted proposals.
The successful bidders were not
made public yesterday by Col. Hyde or
Gen. Carr, but they will be announced
as soon as the contracts are formally
awarded by the commander.

>rospf ciive Bridegroom Is Out
Price of Marriage License.
Unwilling to lose $2 because of a
woman's inconstancy, Charles Nei
brought back to the county clerk's
office yesterday a license that he had
procured May 27 to marry Hilda Tan
gen. When he presented the license he
was told that he might as well keep it.
"But I paid you $2," he said, "to help
me get a wife. I didn't get her, and I
want my money back."
He was assured that there was no
precedent for the surrender of official
fees. The state had done its part. The
county was not to blame because —be-

do about it, anyway?" asked the
"She didn't do anything; she just
changed her mind; said she wasn't
quite sure I was the right man for her
after all. You know how they do."
The deputy didn't know. He even
insisted that marriage licenses are sel
dom returned, and that almost every
girl can keep her mind made up until
after the wedding, at least.
"Some of 'em can, maybe," answered
Mr. Nei, still doubting. "But what use

Reverends J. M. Fulton and
W.H.W.Boyle Relate Some
Yesterday's meeting of the police
commissioners was enlivened by the
presence of Rev. John M. Fulton, of the
Central Presbyterian church, and Rev.
W. H. W. Boyle, of the House of Hope
Presbyterian church, and the proceed
ings had added spice from the pas
sages at arms between Dr. Boyle and
Dr. Boyle said that he had partici
pated in a moral crusade In Colorado
Springs, a town of 30,000 people, and
that the result had been that the city
had been cleared of all houses of ill re
pute, even those of a suspicious char
acter having been done away with.
'4And you contend, as I understand,"
said Commissioner O'Connor, "that the
town of Colorado Springs was cleared
of the social evil."
"Even the one place that was left,
and it was small, was compelled to
close," was the answer of Dr. Boyle.
"There are, I believe," declared
Commissioner O'Connor, "more divorce
cases originating in Colorado Springs
than any other town of the size in the
country. It has the reputation ofl>eing
a place where married women are de
"I know the town well," answered Dr.
Boyle, "and *> not believe that such a
charge is correctly made. It would
please me to see the evidence."
"It will be looked up," declared Mr.
O'Connor. "That is the reputation of
the town, and It is difficult to reconcile
what you ha-we said with what is com-
"An investigation should be made,"
said Dr. Boyle.
"By all means," answered Mr.
Dr. Fulton Tells an Experience.
At the opening of the meeting of the
commission Dr. Fulton was requested
to lay before the commission the facts
that he possessed. Dr. Fulton said that
he had made numerous investigations,
and that during one of his trips, while
in the Empire theater, he had been so
licited by a woman. He contended
that he had knowledge of a great many
other places of a questionable charac
ter, and asked that the police commis
sion enforce the law and close such re
sorts. . I
"But you have charged and repeated i
the accusation that there is graft con
nected with the police management of
the houses of prostitution," said Com
"There was no intention on my part
to deceive," answered Dr. Fulton. "I
used what I supposed was an official
list of houses of ill-fame that existed
in 1899, and as there are not so many
places on record at this time, drew my
own inferences. More money was col
lected at that time than at present, and
I asked what was becoming of what
was not being collected."
Improvement Is Conceded.
"It will be conceded," said Commis
sioner Hardenbergh, "by people who
have lived here for four or five years
that there is less of such crime than at
any time in years."
Dr. Fulton answered the statement
of Commissioner Hardenbergh that the
city has not sufficient policemen with
the assertion that if the policemen
were ordered to close the places it
would be done.
"But it is the wide open policy to
which we object," concluded Dr. Ful
ton, "and we would like to have this
commission close all places of ill-re
Throughout the discussions between
the ministers and the commissioners the
latter insisted, through Commissioners
Hardenbergh and May, that the senti
ment of the city is against its being
"closed," and the ministers were asked
to show that the public sentiment of
St. Paul favors a change in the policy
that has for years been pursued. The
ministers insisted that it was the duty
»f the commission to enforce the law
as they found it. but the commissioners
ihought that the people ha.d declared
against such a course at the recent
As a reason for reform Dr. Boyle
said that he had been solicited by a
woman while standing in front of his
church. Commissioner Haas thought it
peculiar that in the forty-eight years
that he has lived in the city such a
thing had not occurred to him. In an
swer to questions Dr. Boyle said that
he realized that it is difficult to regu
late the social evil because of the close
proximity oi Minneapolis.

"To show that politics has nothing to
do with the course I am pursuing,"
said Dr. Boyle, "I will say that six
weeks before the election I was certain
that Mr. Wright had no chance of be
"But many of the men who are your
friends, Dr. Boyle, tell me privately
that they are thoroughly satisfied with
the police administration of the city.
They may generally talk for reform,
but they will not vote that way," re
marked Commissioner Hardenbergh.
"The members of my church and of
my Sunday schools will sign for the
closing of the saloons at midnight and
Sunday and for the enforcement of
the laws against the social evil," as
serted Dr. Boyle.
"So will mine," said Dr. Fulton.
"But they won't vote that way," re
torted Commissioners Haas and Har
As the ministers left the room the
commissioners arose in their honor and
assured the visitors that their call had
been appreciated, and that it was to
be hope* that they would come again.
As a parting shot Commissioner May
told them to produce the evidence that
the law was being violated by the sa
loonkeepers and lewd women and that
prosecutions would follow.

Board of Public Works Decides to
Make Street Standard Width.
The board of public works yesterday
made a favorable report on the pro

Langford to Albany, deciding to take
the land necessary for the purpose
from Daniel Hickey and assess the en
tire benefit against him. The property
owners on the other side of the street
donated one-half of the thoroughfare
and took this method of securing a
street of standard width.
A hearing was given on the order for
paving Temperance street from Eighth
to Ninth with brick, and was taken un
der consideration. The estimated cost
is $2,212, or $3.65 per front foot.
The assessment district for the con
struction of a sewer on South Robert
street, from Dearborn to Morton, was
placed on the abutting property. Tho
total cost will be $4,437.50, which

FOOLS PARK BOARD
Coal Firm Causes It to Read
vertise and Doesn't Bid.
At the meeting of the board of park
)mmissioners yesterday afternoon
iveral commissioners made, caustic
remarks concerning the coal dealing
firm of Holmes & McCaughey, whitfh
had -written a letter saying that it
would furnish coal for less than the
board had proposed to pay for it.
Holmes & McCaughey failed to come
to the front with ja. bid on the 500 tons
of Youghiogheny coal needed by the
park board, and the contract was di
vided between the Northwestern Fuel
company and the Ohio Coal company,
the concerns originally given the con
tract some time ago, at $4.40 a ton for
immediate delivery and $4.50 for de
livery after Sept. 1, which is exactly
the same terms on which the first con
tract was allowed the same firms.
Some weeks ago the park board let
the coal contract to the Northwestern
and the Ohio Coal companies at the
same figures, and Holmes and Mcr
Caughey, w rho had secured the contract
from the board of fire commissioners
a few days previous at $4.15 a ton

lower bid than the informal offers that
had been accepted. The former action
was reconsidered and bids advertised
The only bids lower than the offers
accepted came from E. O. Fellows, of

coal at $4.30 a ton, and Vanderwarker
