MEXICAN PLANTER NOW General A. B. Nettleton Has Exten sive Interests in Mexico. General A. B. Nettleton, formerly editor and proprietor of the Minneapolis Tribune, later assistant secretary of the treasury under President Harrison, has an interest ing interview in a recent issue of the Mexican Herald, City of Mexico. Speak ing of the west coast of Mexico where,with several other capitalist, who (have joined Interests as the Sinaloa Sugar company, he ha 6 secured 40,000 acres of the best land in the Fuerte river valley, the gen eral called attention to the imperative need of railroad conections across the mountains between the center and north coast Of Mexico. He said that 2,000 acres of the land in question was already under cultivation and that the soil and climate were ideal for the growing of sugar cane. Speaking of financial standards he declared that if he had the power he would not change the •liver for the gold standard in Mexico. If the production of gold increases, he pre dicted the time might come when it would be wise for Mexico to follow the example of the United States. The general was of the opinion that the republican party in this country would have a fiard time holding the island pos sessions without permitting their labor and products to threaten some labor and home industries.

The property was purchased of the Cook estate. Theodore Wetmore represented the Schlitz people in the deal. Represen tatives of the company were in Minneapo lis Saturday to close it. The purchase price is not given, but it is known to be a handsome figure. The Schlitz improvements will cose sev eral hundred thousand dollars. The thea ter will be a fine structure devoted to vaudeville attractions. GALYESTON IN NEED YET WINTER HAS BROUGHT SUFFERING A Volunteer Emissary Calls on Min neapolis for More Help for the Stricken City. I ■ The people of Minneapolis are again asked to contribute to the relief of the Galveston sufferers. R. D. Bowen of the stricken city was here yesterday to solicit donations of various kinds for the poor people of his city. "We need bedding and stoves worse than anything else," said; Mr. Bowen, "but God knows the poor peo- ; | pie need everything. You generous people j ' of the north responded nobly, but you did not understand how great was the calam ity that befell us. We still have more than 400 families on the provision list alone. Hundreds of homes were destroyed and with them all articles of household use. During the summer we did not see i the necessity that became apparent in November, that the people must have stoves, fuel and comfortable bedding to I prevent the ravages of pneumonia and countless other diseases consequent upon an unsanitary way of living. "Clara Barton and others who have been on the ground, have estimated that our needs are ten times greater than were those of the Johnstown flood sufferers, who received some $3,000,000. Galveston has received but $1,150,000. We are suf fering the greatest hardships imaginable from a lack of bedding. The houses and shacks that have been Erected have no stoves, furnaces or heating apparatus ex cept as they have been donated by the people of other states. The calamity was so terrible that no one can realize its ex tent, not even those who passed through It. So many other things engaged our at tention for weeks that we never thought of bedding until cold weather set in. "In Milwaukee the people hurriedly filled a car with stoves and bed clothes, and it is now on its way to Galveston. I hope the press will do what" it can' for us here." Mr. Bowen carries credentials from the mayor of Galveston and the central re lief committee. He is a volunteer work er, and is paying his own expenses. He simply calls attention to the conditions existing in his city, and then hurries to the next town to repeat his sad story. Mr. Bowen called upon Mayor Ames yes terday and received the assurance that Minneapolis would do her share at the second call for help. The mayor ■will probably bring the matter before the council or in some other public manner appeal to the citizens on behalf of the southern city.

GAME AT BUFFALO Possibilities of Next Year's Foot ball. A PAN-AMERICAN EXPO. GAME It Han Been l)U<u»*< U by the "I" Board of Control-No Definite Arrangements. The members of the athletic beard of control at the university are talking of the possibility of arranging a game of football between Minnesota and some eastern school, to be played at the Pan- American exposition at Buffalo next fall. The matter has gone no farther than talk; there has been no correspondence yet, but it is possible that something may come of it. Since the time the U football team of* last fall began to show champion quali ties, Minnesotans generally have been eager to have the gophers arrange a game with one of the skilled teams of the east. No particular eleven is preferred; any will do, provided it has a fair record and a pleasing array of laurels. It is possible that the gophers may this year meet one of the strong teams of fhe east, as stated above. A glance at the schedule for next season shows that two rather important dates have been left open. These omissions were not due to failures to secure engagements. It will not do to raise any false hopes .by stating that such a game is a certainty. . Dr. Williams does not fear a brush with tine eastern warriors. "When our team was at its best last year," 3aid the doc tor this morning, "say about the time of the Northwestern game, it need not have been afraid to meet any of the big eastern teams, even Yale, which was quite su perior to the others. If Yale and Min nesota bad met toward the latter end of the season 1 don't think any one could have told beforehand which team would have won and in any event it would have been a splendid game." Dr. Williams is about to begin the prac tice of his profession as physician here, having been granted his license by the state board last week. He will open an office in the Andrus building. DEATH OF CHAS. A. EBERT Veteran I,«»v>«t 1m Taken Avwiy, Aged 75. Charles A. Ebert, one of the veteran prac titioners of the Minneapolis bar, died sud denly Saturday evening after a week's attack of the grip. He was 75 years of age. Mr. Ebert was born in Halle, Germany. He graduated from the Royal Berlin college at 18 and came soon afterward to the United States, locating at Lyons, X. Y. He took up . the ministry, for which he had received some ; early preparation, and became a clergyman in the German Lutheran church. He had a pastorate at Newark, N. J., for j eight years, when sickness forced him to give ! up his chosen work. He later entered the life insurance business and was for five years ! superintendent of the Manhattan Life Insur ance company of New York. Sickness forced him to come west, and in 1874 he entered the newspaper business, founding the Milwaukee Herold and organizing the Germania in that city. He was appointed state treasury agent by Governor Taylor, holding that position through one administration. Then he took up law and began practicing in lowa. He remained in lowa five years, removed to Min neapolis in 1882. He was a recognized au thority on corporation laws and damages. He had tried several celebrated cases in hig time, among them the case against the North western Telephone company and the New York Mutual Reserve case. Like cases against the insurance company were pending all over the country. In a majority of cases the defendant was beaten, but Mr. Ebert secured a verdict for his client. He leaves a wife and two sons, Henry and Charles, both of whom were associated with him. CLAPP IS SENATOR He Is Sworn In an Soon as Towne'a Speech Is Finlahed. Washington, Jan. 29.—Immediately upon the conclusion of Mr. Towne's speech in the senate Mr. Nelson presented the cre dentials of Mr. Clapp of Minnesota and the oath of office was administered. Special to The Journal. Washington, Jan. 29.—Senator Clapp has i made no plans for residence in Washington. He will not take a house until next session, and will not bring his family here until that time. Senator Clapp will remain at the Ar lington for a day or two and will then prob ably take a room at the Regent hotel, where Representative MeCleary and family are stop ping. Senator Clapp has not selected his private secretary. When Towne finished his address, at 3:10 p. m., after talking three hours, he was Im mediately surrounded by a group of demo cratic senators, who offered congratulations, and in the group were half a dozen repub licans. There was applause in the galleries and on the floor, which the president pro tempore with some difficulty controlled. MINISTERS' MEETINGS Paper* of Interest to the Clergy Read at All. At the Baptist ministers' meeting Rev. G. A. Cleavelanad read a paper on "The New Testament idea of Diseiple ship." The paper awakened quite a discus ' sion. At the JVtethodist ministers' meeting at the j Hennepin* Avenue church Dr. Montgomery read a paper on "The Book of Jonah." I Rev. R. K. Porter read a paper before the I Presbyterian ministers on "The Need of* Re vivals." Rev. E. E. Day of the Open Door Congr*- I gational church read a paper at Plymouth church on "The Minister's Motive." OIL. IN DEMAND Coal Famine on Pacific Coast Spur* the Oil Men. Los Angeles, Cal., Jan. 29.—There is a deal of excitement among manufacturers and others using coal fuel. The house holder has to pay $14 per ton for soft coal this week, and no matter haw much he orders, the dealer sends up only a couple of sacks. They have a way here of de livering coal in gunny sacks supposed to hold 100 pounds. Factories and users of steam power are in a much worse condi tion. There was practically a coal famine here before the miners' strike, m fact, ever since the Klondike boom, which took so many vessels out of the coal-carrying j trade, but since the strike of coal miners in New Mexico, which cut off that sup- i ply, the situation has become serious. The Utah and Colorado mines cannot spare a : carload. The natural and inevitable j thing has happened. Petroleum oil burn- j ers are in great demand. Furnaces are i being remodeled and the railroads are ; running special trains from the oil fieldh with the black fuel oil at the rate of 100 j , cars per day. Even with all the increase in production in 1900, there is not sufficient petroleum to satisfy the big consumers, and only such a condition as now confronts them in the coal supply induces the change. The outlook for the oil producer was never more promising on this coast than to-day. Appreciating the situation, the Green Mountain Oil Co., which, by the way, has a Minneapolis man as its president and ! manager, is rushing development work with all possible speed. They now have two $3,000 drilling rigs perforating the ground out on Rockwood street, and are negotiating the purchase of seven pro ducing wells in the east end of the city field. At the Green Mountain Oil first an nual meeting, only seven months from their organization, the election resulted as follows: President, George R. Whit comb, St. Anthony Park, Minn.; vice president, E. Milton Barber, San Diego, Cal; secretary, James G. Cortelyou, Los Angeles, Cal.; treasurer, James A. Rus sell. Los Angeles, Cal.; fifth director, J. G. Bates, Los Angeles, Cal. [MAY PUP YANDIYEB State Senators Don't Like His Part in Mollie Morris Affair AND HE MAY LOSE CLERKSHIP His Retention, Senators Fear, Might Not Reflect Credit Upon Their Honorable Body. Among the senators who appeared at the statehouse yesterday, there was a sen : timent unexpectedly pronounced in favor ! of disciplining J. s. Vandiver for his con , nection with the pardon of Mollie Morris, the shoplifter. It is not known that the , governor was directly consulted, but his ! friends knew be had given free expres ; sion to indignation at the manner in which | he had been imposed upon. The senators desire to avoid an unsa ! vory mess, but they realize that if Vandi -1 ver is retained on the senate pay roll as a clerk it will leave that body open to the ; imputation of favoring in public employes I such acts as he committed. There is a possibility, furthermore, that Vandiver may be made something of a scapegoat. The country members have frequently . been reminded of late that their constitu ents do not look with favor upon the grow ing influence in party affairs of Messrs. Reese, Warner, Vandiver, et al. Vandiver was named on the caucus slate, though ho was not originally assigned a j place. As the caucus was about to con- I elude its session Senator Tim Sheehan, of ] St. Paul, arose and asked that Vandiver's I name be added. The motion was carried Iby a light vote. Vandiver's appointment was that of clerk to the reapportionment committee, a most important assignment, though there has been no work as yet for the committee to do. TO MAKE IMPROVEMENTS CHICAGO GREAT "WESTERN PLANS Most of the Funds to Be Devoted to the Permanent Way. The Chicago Great Western, General Manager Stickney informs The Jour nal, will make permanent improvements this spring and summer amounting to con siderably more than half a million dol lars. One of- the largest hems is $400,000 for grade revisions, reduction of curves, fill ing of bridges, etc. The sum of $200,000 will be spent in laying additional sidetracks for growing ißdUEtrtan and to improve present facili- j ties. Ten new and heavy consolidation ' engines and fifty new flat cars have been contracted for immedidate delivery. One hundred thousand dollars will be expend ed in improvement of the Chicago freight station. The company will also spend $100,000 in constructing extensive terminals on the twenty-five-acre tract recently purchased in Kansas City. 8.. C. R. & m. PLANS Said That It Will Use the N. P. Terminal*. A railroad official said yesterday: "I will make a prediction regarding the entry of the Burlington, Cedar Rapids & Northern, over which there has been so much talk. I will predict that the Cedar Rapids road will within two years build north from Faribault, to a point a few miles out of Minneapolis. The company will enter St. Paul over the Northern Pa cific and will have terminals on ground recently purchased by the Northern Pa cific. I will predict that the Cedar Rapids company will enter St. Paul this spring by a temporary arrangement with the Great Western, with, which company nego tiations are now in progress." A Great Western official was asked to day if negotiations had really commenced. He replied: "I believe some overtures have been made." Greve Succeeds* Mead.

COURT HOUSE STAFF CUT 4 CENTS Pay Roll I« Trifle Smaller Than Last Year—Mr. Merrill's Sur prising; Offer. The board of county commissioners have j under consideration the salary list of Hen -1 nepin county for 1901. It affects all em : ployes in the county, except those en trenched behind Borne general, or special : law. Those so protected are indicated by 1 a star. The list as a whole shows a small ! decrease from last year, although Auditor Scott has been given more men than his predecessor and at better pay. In other offices a head has been made to drop here | and thrre, bringing the total below 1900. It should be kept in mind that the com missioners are but human and when it comes to family matters it is sometimes j difficult for the best of men to be fair. Commissioner Ryberg has a son in the office of the clerk of the courts. His pay was raised $10 per month. There were five others in the same office, holding simi lar positions at the same rate of pay, and all of them have been boosted. Mr. Merrill, the new register of deeds, went before the board and, without any i such precedent for action on record, noti fied the board that he could get along with two less men in his office. His suggestions were received with calm faces, but the places seem to have veen provided for, I just the same, and as a strange colnci i dence the nephew of County Commissioner j Nash is now occupying one of them. The coherency of blood in county matters could be shown in other cases. To put the whole salary, list in a nut shell, it costs the taxpayers of this county $465 per day for every day the courthouse is open. _The list below will show who are on the county list, together with the pay they are to receive in 1901, as at present arranged. Generous pay does not seem to have a stimulating effect on those receiving it to work overtime when the occasion demands as the bills for extra help show. Clerk of Court's Office. Per. Mo. C. N.

COUNTY PRINTING PLUM IT*S AWARDED TO THE TRIBUNE The Times Attorney Announce* That an Appeal Will Be Made to the Courts. Notwithstanding that the county com- j missloners within a year have adopted a j resolution providing that county printing and all official publications shall bear the label of the Typographical union, the board yesterday by a vote of three to j two awarded the contract for publishing ' the official proceedings, the annual finan | cial statement of the county and the de i linquent tax list to a newspaper not having i the right to carry the union mark. Not j only were the contracts awarded to such a paper, but by the same vote a resolu tion approving of the union label and re quiring its use on official paper waa voted ; down. The trio were Commissioners Bar ney, Nash and Smith. President W. T. Drake of the Allied Printing Trades council, who was present, said after the meeting of the commission ers that the action of that body was a di rect slap at organized labor. The Times offered to print the delinquent tax list for eight cents per description, while the Tribune's figure was also eight cents but for the morning edition only. It was moved to award the contract to the Tribune. Before the contract was let A. B. Jackson stated that the Times was the only paper which had complied strictly with the requirements of the county board with regard to carrying the union mark. Moreover, the Tribune had selected one particular edition for the official publica tion, whereas it was clear that the publica cation should be carried through the whole paper. The contention of the Tribune that the evening edition was a separate paper was not justified by the facts. Only on the front page did the words "The Evening Tribune" appear and this had been bo for years until last Friday when a re porter noticed that the date lines on the inside pages did not bear the same name as was borne on the front. In order to capture the official printing, the change in type had been made. Attention was also Good Mfantftteta Patent Flour, $1.75 per 98-lb.

It was stated by Mr. Jack son that if these matters were all ignored by the commissioners, the authority of the law would be invoked. In voting to award the contract to the Tribune, Commissioner Barney laid the responsibility on the attorney of the board, who had held that the Tribune complied with all requirements. Commissioners Nash and Smith had no apologies to make, and the remaining two. Commissioners Ryberg and Sweet, un hesitatingly voted againtt the motion. The question having been raised that the resolution in favor of the union label might not be binding on the new board. Commissioner Ryberg sought to have the board indorse it, but Commissioner Bar ney Nash and Sweet promptly voted it down. The board decided that the new schedule of salaries should take effect on Feb. 1, when the new appointees throughout the courthouse take their places. Assistant County Attorney Smith ad vised the board against taking any action against the ice companies which were cutting ice at Lake Calhoun on the ground that the property owners about the lake had adequate remedy at law to prevent damage to the lake if any was being caused.
