LOSES ITS IIS. LICENSE JLOCAL, INS. CO.'S DIFFICULTY Said to Have Grown Out of the Er ror of Its -New York , Ag-entw. The Millers and Manufacturers' Insur ance company of this city has lost its license in Wisconsin for ninety days by order of the Wisconsin insurance com missioner. It is charged with violation of he resident agents' law, its policies : Hot being signed by local agents, and •with failure to issue the Wisconsin stan dard policy. The penalty - for the first offense is revocation ot license and for the second a fine of $50. The company saya it is guilty only in a technical sense, the real fault having •been that of Jameson & Frelinghuysen of 2v Tew York, who have been the company's agents. President Shove, when seen by The Journal this morning, said the Company would sue Jameson & Freling liuysen for damages.. Losses were sustained under two policies paid to have been improperly issued. A morning paper does the company an in justice, however, by saying that neither loss* was paid. President Shove exhibits receipts, showing that $881.65 was paid on one policy and $700 on the other. Wisconsin agents secured the policies, photographed them, and made complaint to the insurance commissioner, who con sulted with the attorney-general,- and re voked the license. As it happens, the license expires Feb. i, and the company ■will take out a new license from that date. The action of the commissioner does Hot .affect insurance already written. The company has notified : its Wisconsin &gem& in the following letter: We have been advised by Mr. Giljohann, in surance' commissioner for Wisconsin, that our license has been revoked for ninety i days and we must therefore ask you to discontinue issuing policies for us. The charge upon which we are penalized . !b violation of the residents agents law and the standard policy law, which unfortunately Is the case, as our correspondents in New York'wrote two policies on property located i in Wisconsin on New York standard blanks, and the property burned before we could get the policies up, but we paid the losses.

MILSAPS WILL LEAD Be - Will Conduct " Three " Salvation Army .Meetings To-morrow, The Salvation Army will hold special Services on Sunday at its hall. 223 First avenue S. Major Milsaps will conduct meetings as follows: Special holiness meeting at 10:30 a. m.; special praise • meeting at 3 p. m.: .special evening serv ice at 7:30 p. m. ;: On Monday evening the stereopticon lecture, entitled "Ten Years in the Phil ippines" ' will be delivered by Major Mil saps. All are invited. If a woman is physically miserable and mentally unhappy, the child she bears will, in face and form, as well as in disposition, reflect her own condi tion. Every woman who anticipates motherhood ought to think of this and be a fairy godmother to her own child, endowing it with health, beauty, and a happy disposition. The mental misery of the prospective mother is in general the result of her physical condition. She is nervous, her ISII appetite fails, she cannot sleep. Re store her appetite, quiet her nerves and give her sleep and she becomes a new woman. "It has made a new woman of me," is the constant tes timony of women *yho have used Dr. Fierce's Favorite Prescription. It tranquilizes the nerves, encourages the appetite and induces refreshing 6leep. It estab lishes regularity, j dries weakening! drains, heals in- flammation and ulceration and cures ' female weakness. "During the first month, when I looked for ward to maternity, I could not keep anything «n my stomach," writes Mrs. H. C. Anderson, 01 South Britain, New Haven Co., Conn. "Was so ■weak that I went to bed on the 28th of June and ■ever got up till the first of August. I tried different doctors, but with little benefit. I read about many being helped by using your medi cine, so I thought I would give it a trial. I be gan to take your ' Favorite Prescription ' in No vember, and I had a nice little baby girl in February following. My baby weighed over eight pounds. I was only ill for about one hour, and got along nicely during confinement. Was tip and dressed on the eighth day. I never had the doctor with me at all; just the nurse and one or two friends. My friends thought I was sick a very short time. This makes my second child. With the first one I did not take ' Favorite Pre scription.' The little one lived iust about two months, and she was sick ail the time. This last baby is as plump and healthy as any mother could wish." Dr. Fierce's Pellets cure constipation. CHASED A BURGLAR Mrs. Burdick Asked No Odds Be cause of Her Age. HE WAS MASKED AND TERRIBLE Nevertheless He Kled Like a Seared Rabbit and Wan Pursued Knur Block*. No twentieth century young woman, who boasts of keeping cool when danger threatens —at a time when the average man might lose hia nerve —has more pluck in trying circumstances than Mrs. J. B. Burdick of 26!»1 Lake of the lales boulevard, who passed life's meridian some time before the nineteenth century's finish. Mrs. Burdick, who is 65 years of age, performed the most remarkable exploit of feminine daring on record in Minne apolis, when she took a revolver out of her cupboard Monday night and went after the burglar who was prowling about ihe place. When she got through with him he was the most frightened house breaker ever scared away from prospective plunder. He narrowly escaped with his life, and at last accounts was still run ning. With a revolver on a level with his fleeting form, but too warm-hearted to kill, Mrß. Burdick was a close second for four blocks. She kept up a steady cry for police, but none of Dr. Ames" recruits was within gunshot, and the man, whose capture was made posible by her bravery, escaped. <e-(£^ * vi§^^K^')) v"v *>> N^ MRS. J. B. BURDICK. Mrs. Burdick was alone in the house at 7:30 in the evening, when «he heard some one at the rear door, which enters the dining room. She stepped into the next room and asked: "Who's there?" Getting no response, she fancied her self mistaken, and returned to the kitch en. A little later she heard a sound at the door which connects the dining-room with a bed room. The door kept open ing in a mysterious way, and she was forced to shut It four times. The last time she locked it. But she had scarcely resumed her work again when there came a faint tapping at the kitchen door. Mrs. Burdick began to lose patience. "Who's there?" she again asked, as she stepped to the door. "Me," was the indefinite reply of a gruff voice. "Well, I want to know who you are; I've had about enough of this, said Mrs. Burdick, pulling aside the curtain. There stood a man with his half masked face pressed closely against the glass panel. Mrs. Burdick did not scream nor faint. She thought at first that some one was playing a practical joke. She again in quired into his business, bul when he said he wanted to see her son Joe, she be came suspicious. 'Tve got a revolver here," she ex claimed, "and if you don't go away from this house I'll kill you." As he made no move she dropped the blind and ran for the revolver. Secur ing the weapon, she ran through the rear door and across to a neighbor's house to summon help. It was In doing so that she encountered Mr. Burdick, who was Just re turning from work. The burglar had dis appeared when they returned to the house. At 10 o'clock, when they were about to retire for the night, Mrs. Burdick looked out of the parlor window and squarely into the face of the man who had rapped at the kitchen door. "Hei's back again," she called to her husband: "Fm going to kill him this time!" Mr, Burdick, who was then disrobing, yelled for her to wait for him. But it was too late. She was already out of doors and on the trail, bare-headed, and with only her slippers to protect her feet. By that time the man had reached the boulevard and was slowly walking away. Mrs. Burdiek cocked the revolver and stole noiselessly upon him. "You're the man who's been prowling around here all night," she cried, thrust ing the gun under his hat. "Now, if you don't clear out of here for good I'll shoot your head off!" He said not a word but sped away like a deer. To make sure of his departure, Mra. Burdick followed close at his heels. By the time Mr. Burdick had organized a posse of neighbors, all armed, Mrs. Bur dick and the burglar were out of sight. They could hear her yelling, and follow ing the sound, finally located her four blocks away at Hennepin avenue and Twenty-sixth street, where she was hav ing a laugh at the burglar's expense. She had run through enow drifts up to her knees in the chase, but hadn't lost a slipper. Mr. Burdick said this morning that if there had been a mounted policeman in the neighborhood, as in the pa»t, the burg lar would have been captured. The mount ed police force having been temporarily abolished the Lake of the Isles district is left without protection. CALLED CHICKENPOX Mistake That Ih Uusiiir Spread of Smallpox in the Country. Owing to the prevalence of smallpox in rural communities, the state board of l health will meet Tuesday to decide on , a course of action to f prevent the ' further spread of the disease. On account of the mild form of the disease It is often re garded as chicken-pox, is not quarantined, and thus whole communities are exposed. , Dr. Bracken urges the co-operation of the general public in notifying the - authori ties ~. of : all suspicious'; cases.

Jan. 12. —The Record says: Ab solute control ,of the vast; interests of the nation's ■ express"companies^ may fall. 1 into the hands of the railroad financial powers.

Hill and others,» who are figuring promi nently in the recently reported railway deals, and the general ' scheme has been outlined.' The report has it that the powers intend to conduct the express busi ness of the country as a regular depart ment ;of railroad operation, strong pro visions being made to. have all roads act in harmony. 3 * . t" ■ ' '•■•-'" * While nothing definite regarding the plans is obtainable, it is claimed to be the intention of the railroad . officers to refuse, to renew contracts with the com panies where the remaining ? life of ' the contracts is not long, and "to make .. out right purchases of franchises where ■' the contracts still have long lives before them. The express companies have' contracts ranging all the way from five to twenty, years, and at the expiration of their legal agreements they are at the mercy of the railway companies.. \ . . "ALL THINGS; POSSIBLE" Hill Speaks Oracularly Regarding ■•*• _ r the St. Paul Deal. ... ) New York, \ Jan. 12.—James J. " Hill, president of the Great Northern railway, said to-day with regard to the report from "the west that the St. Paul railroad had ben issued by the Great Northern and the Northern Pacific. . "This is untrue, the fact is, we are looking for better and closer co-operation ; between. the . western railroads. You may put this alleged ■ St. Paul deal as among the possibilities—all things are possible." ■ Redeem Their Own Tickets. Some of the roads have adopted an excellent plan for defeating the scalpers by offering to redeem at full face value any part of au unused ticket. Circulars declaring the will ingness of the various companies to do this have been posted at stations. The object is to let travelers know that scalpers are not the only ones who will buy transportation. No restrictions or conditions attach to the offer. Jarviu Oat of \V. C.

The Milwaukee's ex change annuals are. made good on its Minne tonka line. COURT NEWS THEY TRY AGAIX Six Mile Creek Claimant)) Are Not Wholly DiMheartened. Judge Pond yesterday listened to long arguments on a motion to confirm the re port of the last commission which gave the Six-Mile Creekers a rehearing and then threw them down so hard that they are still dazed from the effects of the fall. The creekers are now about able to gasp for breath, and their first request is that they be allowed another commis sion. Having had two commissions and being awarded nothing by one and next to nothing by the other, it is doubtful if their prayers will be heard. They allege that the commission disregarded the un contradicted testimony of a score of com petent witnesses. An error is alleged to have been committed in refusing permis sion to prove that the waters of the lake backed up in Six-mile creek and pre vented the drainage of the low lands, and erred again in refusing permission to show the value of grass and hay formerly taken from the lands. Crane & Orrtway'n C'lnini, In the district court of Ramsey county Crane & Ordway have begun suit against the Mississippi Valley Telephone com pany to foreclose a lien amounting to $202.30, which was filed last June. The plaintiff asks that the defendants and all other persons claiming an interest in any of the telephone company's property, under liens or otherwise, be barred from any benefits arising from the sale except the right of redemption as allowed by law. Reserve Pond Wm Short. The "diamond" contracts, on which so many people bit so readily, will not hold even in law. Perr^ L. Hale, who brought suit against the Equitable Benefit & Loan company, received no relief from Judge Elliott, who finds that the company is not responsible for the failure of the re serve fund to materialize; that it did all in its power to establish it, but the money apparently fell short every time before the reserve fund was reached in the general distribution. THE" BODY EN ROUTE Chester Markliaiu'* Remains Sent From the Philippines. Adjutant General Lambert has received notice from Washington that the remains of Private Chester A. Markham of the Seventh cavalry, who died in the Philip pines of dysentery, have been forwarded to Minneapolis where he formerly lived. STOLEN SHOES FOUND.

The goods were found In a vacant store building, and the owner at once began replevin proceedings to regain his property. The goods were purchased in the east and shipped to New York. Later they were stolen and de tectives traced the property to St. Paul. BANKING ITS CASH Savings Accounts Show That the Public Is Thrifty. INVESTMENTS ARE POPULAR, TOO But Their I* still a Surplus Which In Carried in the Banki. The happy conditions In which the sav ings banks find themselves at the begin ning of the new year ia perhaps the best j evidence obtainable that genuine pros perity exists in the United States. Here tofore these institutions have found pan icky times as fruitful of savings bank in vestments as bright years in the business world. In other words, because times were good it was no sign that people would save their money. They w«re more likely to invest it in municipal bonds or farm mortgages thau to let It remain I drawing interest in savings banks. And it has been frequently observed that the year following a panic was the best of all for these financial concerns, for the reason that people were dismayed and had no heart to engage in speculation or business of any kind. In good times, how ever, they are confident, aggressive and prefer to risk their saviugs in invest ments that promise a greater return than the interest accruing on their deposits. But in 1901 the local banks have observed a notable increase in the amount of sav ings of each individual. For example, J. E. Bell, president of the Heneppin County Savings bank, says that while their aver age deposit in 1900 was about $350, it is now $450, and this in the face of condi tions most favorable for customers with drawing their money for speculative-pur poses. A great deal of money is being in vested in municipal bonds, a very safe form of investment, and the general con ditions are favorable for business enter prises of various kinds. "The year 1900 was a good year," said Mr. Bell, "but 1899 marked the high water mark for us. In 1900 the presidential campaign and the partial crop failure mil itated against us, but 1901 o^eps most auspiciously. The hard times Dad their educational value, as peoDle are learning to save more and more. • We have been greatly pleased at the prosperous condi tions of the farmers even in the districts that suffered from the drouth, they have paid their interest on, mortgages promptly, which shows that three years of good crops placed them in easy circumstances. It is ! really astonishing how easily they meet their obligations. We attribute their im proved circumstances to diversified farm ing in large measure, which enables them to make money in spite of crop failure." E. H. Moulton, of the Farmers and Me chanics' bank, says there is very little difference between the figures of his bank in 1899 and 1900. "Both years show a gain in deposits of about $1,000,000," said Mr. Moulton. "There is not $20,000 difference. The year 1892 was our banner year, with $1,250,000 in our gain column. The outlook for 1901 is much as it was last year. A year fol lowing a financial disturbance Induces many people to save their money. Then they are timid of all forms of investments. But latterly our customers have taken heart and are putting their money into various ventures. I look to see a great deal of building done this year. If one stops to think, there has been no great building activity in the residence portions of the city for years, but I look for a great revival next summer. There are certain localities, of course, where considerable building has been done, but on ftie whole, we have not much to brag of in that re- I spect. "I am a little afraid, however, that the cost of building materials will prevent many people from makiug the improve ments they have long had in mind. I know that many building plans were post poned last year because of the high price of material. When people figured with architects and contractors they got dis couraged. 1 sincerely hope the same, trouble may not be in evidence again this year. The fact of the matter is that peo ple will not pay 50 per cent more for buildings than formerly. 1 do not think they are comparing present prices with those of panic years, but that investors really believe prices are too high, • and must come down. While rents have ad vanced, the proportionate showing has not kept pace with the increased cost of build- Ings. I know of many business houses that have lowered rents." GEN. BOOTH DELAYED i Will Be Here for To-morrow* Vol unteer MretiiiK>. However. General Ballington Booth and Brigadier i Fielding of the Volunteers of America, ! will not arrive in Minneapolis until to morrow morning. Adjutant W.

BUYS AN IOWA ROAD Rock Island Deals for the Gowrie and North-Western. DEED AND MORTGAGE FILED Central Trust Company Figures in the Transaction and Is Vir- ■ tnally Owner. Special to The Journal. Fort Dodge, lowa, Jan. 12.—Two impor tant documents were filed with the county recorder here yesterday by the attor ney of the Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific railway. Internal revenue stamps to the amount of $2,200 were placed on the pa pers. The first document is a deed transfer ring the Gowrie & North-Western rail road to the Chicago, Rock Island & Pa cific in consideration of the sum of $1,479, --215.58. The property sold extends from Gowrie, in Webster county, through Cal houn, Pocahontas, Buena Vista, Clay, O'Brien and Osceola counties to a junction with the Cedar Rapids & Northern at Sibley, in Osceola county. The transfer is absolute and embraces all property and privileges which-have belonged to the former road. It is attested by W. J. Law rence, president, and J. H. Mather, sec retary of the Gowrie & North-Western road. At the same time the Rock Island road filed a mortgage with the recorder, made between itself and the Central Trust com pany of New York, being part of a series of transactions which have occurred be tween the two corporations. The document states that in 1898 the Rock Island gave in part security for a mortgage arranged with the trust company shares of capita! stock of the Minnesota and Pacific rail way and that later it sold this road and turned the money received for it to the trust company. From this money the road drew from the trustee of the trust com pany, with whom it had been deposited, the sum of $1,497,215.58 for the purchase of the Gowrie & Northwestern railway. In return for this the Rock Island turns over the road just bought to the. trust company, but retains the use of it"under the trust and the payment of the interest due. MR.

SHOOK LIND'S HAND The Ex-Governor Holds a Levee on ' the Streets of Minneapolis. Former Governor John Lind visited Minneapolis yesterday for the first time since his last day in office when he called at the St. Paul Dispatch sanctum looking for an apology or a fight. People who have a speaking acquaint ance with "Citizen" Llnd, and even those who know him on sight, were quick to shower congratulation^ upon him for making a record in pugilism so soon after his retirement from politics. The gov ernor held a continued levee all the way from First avenue to Hennepin. Two score of men stopped him in that distance to remark upon his most recent ex ploit. . Among these who greeted him there were Colonel C. McC. Reeve, warden of the state penitentiary, who was particu larly warm in his greeting. He couldn't call to mind, he said, an incident which had pleased him more. He went on to re mark that he expected to have a successor soon at the state prison. "Unlike Governor Lind," said he, "the new governor does not seem to believe that the appointment to the position of warden should be made from a non-parti san standpoint. Although I am a re publican, Governor Lind, a democrat, did not believe that politics incapacitated me for holding the office. But Governor Van Sant demands a change." This led Mr. Lind to say that if there was one aspect of his official conduct in which he took particular pride, it was the fact that during his entire administration, he had not removed a man or made an ap pointment for political reasons. Then Mr. Lind moved on to Hennepin avenue where the hand shaking com menced afresh. A crowd of Hennepin politicians, just from St. Paul, peered curiously from the windows of a passing In<erurban at the remarkable street scene. FRIEND OFJVHITTIER Jnilue J. F.
