INCORRIGIBLE GIRLS
Federated Cub Women Discuss
Removal of Training School
From Red Wing
Mrs. J. W. Edgerton, newly ap
pointed vice president of the Fourth
district, presided at the meeting of
the Federated club women yesterday
| afternoon in the parlors of the Met
ropolitan hotel. She made a few grace
ful remarks and announced that the
meeting was the regular one for the
autumn, and the members proceeded
to business^ first of which was the elec
tion df a secretary for the district in
the person of Mrs. W. M. Todd. of St.
Anthony Park.
Mrs. A. T. Blgelow, of Merriam
Park, reported the state convention
and gave an excellent outline of its
daily programmes. Mrs. Higbes spoke
at some length in regard to the project
of removing the training school for
girls from Red Wing, which is the
«. only work undertaken by the federa
tion for the ensuing year, and ex
plained the exact conditions of the
present school, which, though the
best that can be done under existing
circumstances, are still deplorable.
She urged upon club members the
necessity of interviewing teypislators
and doing everything possible*to bring
before their minds the grave reasons
why _an appropriation should be made
this winter to erect and equip a mod
ern training school on the cottage sys
tem in another town and on another
line of road, In which to house the in
corrigible girls of this state. She
spoke of the wireless telegraph which
seemed to carry communications from
the boys to the girls and back again, in
different buildings at Red Wing, and
which was fatal to reform, in spite of
all the authorities could do.
A discussion followed, in which
many questions were asked by those
present and answered by Mrs. Higbee,
showing the earnest interest the wom
en *ake in this important matter. An
excellent programme of music was
given by Mrs. Paul Zumbach and Mrs.
Thurston, accompanied by Miss Zum
bach. The club women turned out
well, the attendance representing sev
enteen clubs, this being the largest
district meeting ever held.
The chairman announced that the
clubs of the Fourth district were in
vited by those of the Fifth district to
attend a meeting and reception in
honor of Mrs. L. P. Williams next Sat
urday in the East side public library,
Minneapolis, at 2:30 p. m.
PREPARING TO MOVE
State Officers Ready to Desert
the Old Capitol
Preparations for moving Into the new
capitol have been begun by various of
ficers at the old state house.
S. W. Leavett, df the board of con
trol, said that the board would change
Its quarters before the end of Novem
ber.
"We shall have pleasant rooms where
we are going," Mr. Leavett said, "but
It would be hard to find a more
spacious, better lighted or better ven
tilated apartment for our main office
than we have had here In the repre
sentatives' halL You see, we use the
entire hall.
"Still it has been necessary to make
temporary offices at the sides of the
hall by putting in partitions, Japanese
fashion, that extend but part way to
the ceiling. At the new capitol we
■won't be bothered with makeshifts, and
the arrangement of our oflicgs^pdll be
more convenient, not to speak of the
general superiority of the building."
State Librarian E. A. Nelson is al
ready packing up. He was having
• boxes prepared yesterday in which to
carry the numerous volumes of his
library without disarranging their or
der. In each of fifty such boxes, duly
numbered, the books will be carried to
the shelves of the new capitol so that
the usual confusion of such transfers
may be obviated.

neapolis & St. Louis, of $10 for the
round trip, good returning until Dec. 1.

fair traffic from St. Paul and Minne
apolis during the present month. The
Chicago lines have not yet signified
whether they will meet the low rate.
PIKE FOR EVERYONE
Game Commission to Stock
Glenwood Hatchery
A decision to take from the general
fund of the state game and fish com
mission sufficient money to pay the ex
pense of stocking the Glenwood hati-h
--ery with brook trout this fall was
reached yesterday by the game and fish
commissioners. They held a special
meeting at the capitol to consider the
question. Twenty thousand dollars
had been appropriated by the legislature
for the cost of the buildings at Glen
wood, but no funds had been provided
with which to stock the hatchery.
Agreeing that the new buildings must
be utilized as soon as possible, if only
to a limited extent, the commission
voted that $1,000 or $1,500 should be
taken from the general fund, and that
the money be expended for brook trout.
Next spring, as Executive Agent S.
F. Fullerton explained after the meet
ing, wall-eyed pike will be grown at
Glenwood. An appropriation expected
from the next legislature will then be
available.
"The Glenwood hatchery," Mr. Ful
lerton said* "was built specially to
propagate wall-eyed pike and crapples
and bass. It is a much larger hatchery
than the one here in St. Paul. We can
raise at Glenwood no less than 200,000,
--000 pike at one time, and we'll probably
start out in the spring with 150,000,000.
"We shall continue to raise trout and
other fish at the St. Paul hatchery, but
we shall propagate pike so extensively
at Glenwood because that is the best
table fish —the best 'pan' fish—in Min
nesota. We shall aim to make wall
eyed pike abundant in practically all
of our 10,000 lakes. If we can do that,
it will be an immensely valuable ad
dition to the food supplies of our peo
ple.
"We think the plan Is practicable.
We can propagate pike so much more
rapidly by artificial means than they
grow naturally. That is, the proportion
of pike spawn that attains an active
infancy under natural conditions Is
about 4% per cent. By our artificial
methods we have increased this pro
portion to 95 per cent."
The commissioners considered the
case of the Wells-Fargo Express com
pany, which has been charged at Red
"Wing with violating the law by ship
ping fish out of. the state. The com
pany asserted yesterday, through an
attorney, that it had no desire to vio
late the Minnesota laws, and that it
would notify aH its agents to observe
the law strictly. In reply the commis
sion made no offer of compromise, ex
cept to refer the matter to County At
torney Johnson, of Goodhue
and call" his attention to the promises
of the express company.

THE S!T. PAUL, GLOBE. SUNDAY. NOVEMBER 13. 1904
fOOT WILL NOT
County Treasurer* Elect May
Hold Several of Mr. Metz*
dorf's Clerks
County Treasurer-elect Jesse Foot
paid a visit to the county building
yesterday afternoon, and while there
made statements regarding the man
ner in which he expects to run his new
office and also regarding the manner
la which he was treated by friends and
enemies in the recent campaign.
Mr. Foot says that he does not an
ticipate a cleaning out In the staff
which has helped make the Metzdorf
administration successful. The entire
matter, he says, has already received
considerable attention and he is of the
opinion that there are some men in the
office, who, even if they did work for
the opposition candidate, are valuable
to the county and should be retained
in their present positions.
"Any man who went oat and .hustled
for Mr. Metzdorf," said Mr. Foot, "and
did it in a clean manner, need not fear
that I will bear any ill will against
him. While political affiliations always
have considerable to do with the choos
ing of a staff after a successful cam
paign, I believe in the welfare of the
county being brought to the surface,
a.id will do everything in my power to
keep this uppermost in my mind. Of
course I have a number of friends who
worked hard for my election and I will
take care of them if their qualifications
are such as to warrant their appoint
ment to positions under the county
treasurer.
"The men in the office at the present
time who worked for Mr. Metzdorf and
instead of bringing his many good
qualities to the front in the campaign,
attempted underhand ways, will, of
course, be looking for something else
to do on Jan. 1. I have no patience
with those who used underhand meth
ods, and do not believe that Mr. Metz
dorf would ever sanction such work.
He conducted a clean campaign and 1
tried to do the same, and succeeded I
think."
"Who will be your cashier, Mr.
Foot? 1' was asked. "Will you retain
Mr. Jansen?**
"That is one of the matters that is
not settled as yet," he replied. "Tho
company which will po on my bond of
$500,000 will undoubtedly have Bonie
thing to say regarding the appointment
of a cashier. Mr. Jansen is not in
cluded in those who used underhand
methods, as all his work was honora
ble and above board.
"Although opposed to me politically,
I want to thank The Globe for the
fair manner in which it used me in the
campaign. It worked clean politics and
gave a shining example of the manner
in which a campaign can be conducted,
taking advantage of every possible
opening and bringing out the good
qualifications of its own candidates, in-
Btead.of trying to cast slurs at op
ponents. If every campaign could be
conducted in the manner in which
The Globe conducted the last one,
more v.en would feel like having their
names used when running for office."

BARBER THUS HAIR
CUT IS WORTH $1.50
Raises Price on Customer and
Policeman Starts on
His Trail
Louis Snell. a barber, conducting a
shop at 303 Jackson street, narrowly
escaped arrest yesterday when he was
accused of overcharging a patron. He
eluded Patrolman Wagner, who went
"to the shop after receiving a complaint
from the man who said he bad been
"done" by the barber. Sending his
brother to take his place in the shop,
Snell did not appear again during the
afternoon.
The young man who claimed he had
been made a victim by Snell gave his
name as Adam Lunberger, and said he/
had come from Notth Dakota. In com
pany with James Ellsworth, he declar
ed, he went to the chop, where he re
ceived a hair cut. shave and shampoo.
While he was being treated ir« one
chair his friend Ellsworth was shaved
in the other.
"When he finished with me he said
my bill was $1.50," said Lunberger,
after he had left the shop. Patrolman
Wagner was called, and on hearing the
story went to arrest Snell. The barber,
however, was not to be found, and the
officer said Snell had run- away when
he was seen approaching.
LunlK-rger's story was corroborated
by A. Giguier. a dairyman, living at
388 Florida street, who told Patrolman
Wagner that he was in the shop at the
time the charge was made.
* When he said the bill was 11.50 I
jumped up and said I never heard of
such a thing." said Qiguier. "He then
poßited to a pile of hair on the floor
and said:
'• 'Look at all the hair I cut off his
head!'"
Patrolman WSigner watched the shop
during the afternoon but at a late hour
Snell had not returned.

ENDS HIS TROUBLES
Former St. Paul Mall Carrier
Takes- Hs Life
William W. Sweeney, formerly em
ployed as a mall carrier at the St. An
thony Hill station, in this city, com
mitted suicide in Spokane, Wash., last
Monday night. His body was brought
to St. Paul Friday and has been in
terred at Oakland cemetery.
Mr. Sweezey lived, with his wife, at
€44 Selby avenue, but last February
resigned from the postofflce force and
went with Mrs. Sweezey to Washing
ton, thinking- that the change of climate
would improve his health. He was
suffering from consumption, and It Is
thought that the knowledge that he
was about to ille from the disease
caused him to kill himself.
He had lived In this city ten years
and was a mail carrier four years. Be
fore entering the postal service he was
a street car conductor in St. Paul. He
had no children. His wife and a
brother, George Sweeaey, who conducts
a grocery store in St. Paul, survive
him. He was 34 years old.
Mr. Sweeaey and his wife, on leaving
St Paul, settled at Harrington. Wash.,
and purchased the Harrington hotel.
After conducting the place for a time,
Mr. Sweezey found that he was un
equal to the task, and leaving a man
named Henry Fay in charge, went with
his wife up the St. Maries river, in
Idaho, where they camped during the
summer. They went to Spokane, Oct.
3, and took furnished rooms.
His health continued to fail, and for
two weeks he .was hardly able to sit
up. Monday his wife went down town
on some business and In her absence
he wrote her a note telling her that his
case was hfffceJess and he had concluded
that it was better to hasten the end and
put a stop to her sufferings on his ac
count. He then shot himself.
It is reported from Washington that
on Sept. 21 the hotel at Harrington,
the furniture and fixtures of which
were owned by Sweezey, was burned
and one man was cremated. The local
authorities suspected that the place
had been set afire, and Henry Fay was
arrested. A warrant was also Issued
for the arrest of Mr. Sweezey. When
he appeared in Spokane it was served
on him, but he was too ill to go to jail,
and an officer remained with him until
he could secure 11,000 bonds. It is
reported that there was no foundation
for the charge made against Mr.
Sweezey, and both he and his wife are
spoken of highly by all who knew them
at their new home. Mr. Sweezey was
well known on St. Anthony hill, where
he delivered maiL
