The members of the state pardon board feel very keenly the scandal aroused by the release 6f Mollie Morris from the St. Paul ■workhouse. Attorney General Douglas to-day requested County Attorney Kane, of Ramsey county, to present the other charges against the woman to the grand, jury, in order to secure an indictment and bring her back from Chicago for trial. It is quite likely that the grand jury ■will also investigate the manner of her release. Fred C. Schiffman, the newly appointed oil inspector, has written to the county attorney asking for an investiga tion. F. W. Zollman, former assistant county attorney, has written a letter defending his course in the Morris case. He claims that there was really no evidence against the woman, and that there was no impropriety in her release, which is made "the subject of a hue and cry which involves the repu tation of reputable citizens." One on Harrison. Mayor Harrison of Chicago says he lays awake nights thinking how he can give his city good government. Perhaps that's what's the matter with Chicago, the mayor is too tired to attend to his long list of duties. We would advise him to try "Golden Grain Belt" beer to make him sleep well. Brewed from the purest bar ley malt and hops, it quiets the nerves and produces refreshing sleep. It is also sparkling and delicious, a beverage that should be in every home.

THE MINNEAPOLIS JOURNAL. RAILWAYS DID IT Their Opposition Doomed New Brighton Packing Industry. WERE LOOKING FOR DOUBLE HAUL Gave Stockmen a Better Rate From Montana to Chicago Than to Minneapolis In the passing of the stock yards at New Brighton the public is afforded a striking illustration of the manner in which a great industry, with every orig inal advantage of location in its favor, can be wiped out of existence by adverse railroad influences. Such, in brief, is the history of the New Brighton stock yards and packing houses. When this big plant was started, more than a decade ago, it gave promise of becoming one of the great packing cen ters of the United States. Thousands of head of cattle, sheep and hogs were pass ing through Minneapolis from the vast ranges of the northwest. It was reasoned that the metropolis and gateway of the northwest should be the natural market and point of distribution of the stock. It was purposed to make this city the rival of Chicago and the superior of Omaha, Kansas City and Cincinnati as a packing center. Local capital readily took hold of the project when it was first broached in 1887, the Canadian Pacific and Northern Pa cific roads being particularly interested in making this a great live stock market. ! Both roads brought all of their influence Jto bear to that end. So powerful was their support that for a time, in spite of the great boycott imposed by other roads, without whose hearty co-operation there could be no real or permanent success, it looked as though the stock yards would faucceed. Railroads Fought the Enterprise. The Chicago-Minneapolis roads began to oppose the New Brighton yards from the outset. Foreseeing the upbuilding of a great industry here, with their co-opera tion, they at the same time foresaw that such a condition would mean the doom of the immense carrying business, if north western stock was to be slaughtered in Minneapolis. At first covertly, then open ly, the roads began to discriminate Against Minneapolis in favor of Chicago, so that it was cheaper for the stock-raiser to send his stock to Chicago, a much longer haul, than to this city. That persistent dis crimination was kept up for years, in spite of the attempts of the North-West ern road to break the deadlock. Without the assistance of the other big Chicago lines, the odds were too great to be over .come. The roads found it too much to their interests to pull the live animal to Chicago and send the carcass back, charg ing for its transportation both ways. Inveettora 'Were Game. In the face of this disheartening draw back, the Minneapolitans who stood to lose, stayed gamely by their venture. In the summer of 1889 they put in still more extensive improvements at New Brighton. The total cost of the plant at that time, including buildings, trackage and general equipment, amounted to $1,500,000. Two immense packing-houses had been erected and the yards were operated for some years. One of the buildings burned and the other was used for a time by a St. Paul concern. Later it was bought and remodeled by Phillip Schufeldt of St. Paul, who put in improvements estimated at $11*0,000 in the seasons of 1806-1897. Mr. Schufeldt did business for a short time at New Brighton; then he, too, be came discouraged. To-day, in its final state of dissolution, the New Brighton plant is one of the moat modern small plants in the country. In 1898 the Min nesota Transfer company bought the Belt Line railroad, which the New Brighton company had constructed, and extended it from Fridley to Minnesota Transfer. The same year the title to the yards, the sewer and water systems and some land passed into the hands of the Transfer company. The Stockyards company, through its receiver, sold to the New Brighton Land company 300 acres, most ly platted, and 200 acres adjoining Long lake. The finals of the deal were allbut con summated last week when the New- Brighton Land company made Fred G. I James its general manager and sales [ agent, with power to sell any of the lands i or other property at market prices and j close up the business of the company. j Ex-Governor John S. Pillsbury, who has stood so loyally by Minneapolis through thick and thin, is president of the com pany. Schnfeldt Owns Packing; Homes. The Schufeldt company still holds the title to the packing-houses and the ex change building, which are now on .the market for sale. An option has recently been given on the packing houses. Who is bidding for them could not be learned. What can be the object of securing pos session of them now is also a mystery. The Minnesota Transfer company pur poses to operate tne yards to such an extent as to care for Montana stock on its way to Chicago from July to Septem ber each year. The use of the Transfer facilities for that purpose will be discon tinued. The New Brighton yards are most con veniently located with regard to eastern and western railroad distributing facili ties. Minneapolis projectors of the enterprise and the railroads which backed It lost fully $1,000,000 in the whole transaction from beginning to end. About $400,000 was the purchase price paid by the Mm- j nesota Transfer company, as opposed to j the total outlay of $1,500,000. HENRY GUY"^ARLETON" DEAD Father of Frank H. Carleton Dies In »wport, N. H. Frank H. Carleton of the firm of Cross, i Hicks, Carleton & Cross, left Minneapolis j on Wednesday in response to a telegram announcing the death of his father, Henry j | Guy Carleton, at Newport, N. H. Mr. ! i Carleton was one of the most prominent 1 and highly honored citizens of Newport. 1 He was conspicuous for his honesty and j ; the stainless character of his life. He was ' born in Buckport, Me., Nov. 30, 1813. Of his seven brothers and sisters only one is i living, Mrs. George Pillsbury of Minne- i ! apolis. i Mr. Carleton was descended from a line of distinguished Englishmen. He became a resident of Newport in 1832, and en- I tered the office of the Newport Spectator. '' In 1840 he became a part owner of the ': New Hampshire Argus and Spectator, which was conducted by his firm for near ly forty years. They also issued during , several campaigns, "The Whip and Spur." Mr. Carleton was at various times regis ter of deeds, register of probate, member of the state legislature, director of banks, and president of the Newport savings bank. He was a prominent Mason. NO FAVOR FOR ONE'HALF CTS. Minneapolis Merchants Don't Care for Smaller ( uinx, There was a time in the history of Min neapolis when a nickel was the smallest piece of money in circulation, but gradually it came about that storekeepers would look at a cent with less disdain than formerly, and finally the use of the cent is so com mon that there is a greater demand than supply. In New York city the line has been drawn even finer and now the big department stores are agitating the coin age and use of a one-half cent piece. This agitation has not reached Minne apolis and the department stores here characterize the movement as foolish. It is the custom of the stores in this city to give and take, that is, if a half was taken of each of several different cloths, the store would take the first half cent and give the customer the benefit of the other, and in the long run it would amount to the same as if the customer were put to the trouble of carrying around a lot of half cents. No store in town cares enough about the half cent move even to give it a hit of commendation MICPAELWHELAN RESIGNS OLD WAR HORSE HAS ENOUGH Leaves the Workhouse Management : Entirely to Mr." Hagman—Lat ter to Have a Clerk. Captain Michael Whelan, assistant su perintendent of the workhouse, will co operate with the board of ; charities and corrections "in the i work of regeneration of the affairs of that institution by re signing, thus leaving his superior in com plete possession of the field for the time being. ; Captain Whelan .-. informed the board of his willingness to get out at the special meeting held in the mayor's office yesterday afternoon. " Acting upon his declared intention, t the board I thereupon declared the position of assistant super intendent vacant. .:—- . , 1 Captain Whelan," however, in "the same breath with his resignation, preferred charges of malfeasance in office against Superintendent > Hagmen, and the same will be given a hearing at another special meeting, to be held to-morrow afternoon in the mayor's office. " ' .'. \ | It was ■ decided to abolish the position of assistant superintendent, and. give the superintendent a clerk instead." Andrew Hoben was , named * for. the place. r llaKinun Charge* Not Proven. The committee appointed to investigate the charges against Superintendent Hag- j man reported to the board at yesterday's ! session, the report declared that there! were not sufficient grounds to warrant his removal from office at this time. In the course of the meeing the two principals met in the outer room of the mayor's office and forthwith proceeded to engage in a wordy altercation. Captain Whelan was anxious to settle scores with his chief tnen ana there, but the latter refused to engage in a mix-up. The Hagman-Whelan investigation was carried on behind closed doors, as usual. Later the board held an open session at which it considered matters pertaining to the new hospital. T. B. Janney of the citi zens' committee that raised $25,000 for the erection of a quarantine hospital and a contagious disease ward at the city hos pital, reported that there was $8,000 left in the fund for the latter purpose, and that the committee could raise enough more to erect the second building. The matter will be taken up again at to-mor row's meeting. A LOVELY OPENING Flambeau Club's Show Opens in Great Style. ■ Century Hail wag filled last evening at the formal opening of the Flanibeau club's fair which has taken this means of raising money with which to pay the expenses of its trip to Washington, where it will par ticipate in the McKinley inaugural cere monies. Governor Van Sant made the opening ad dress, in which he highly complimented the club upon the work it did in the last campaign and the advertising it would give the city of Minneapolis in Washington. After the governor's speech, the real fun of the evening began, and it was kept up until almost midnight. There are booths of all kinds in the hall, each one presided over by a pretty girl—in fact, several of them —and these were constantly surround ed by groups of admirers, intent upon buying things. There were wheels of fortune where one might win a collar button if he were re markably lucky, and where, as one of the presiding geniuses put it, "you lose every time you win." The stage perofrmance, consisting of mu sic, general vaudeville, etc., was excellent, but the best is yet to come. Great in terest was taken in the voting contests, and at the close of the evening the score stood: Stenographers—Bessie W. Dunbar, 65- Kate Little, 264; May Sessions, 258; L. J. Freeman, 100. Saleswomen—Marie Johnson, 105; Pau line Eichhorn, 114; Rose Hokmier, 100; Juel Willgraf, 114. Program To-nl«bt. The program for this evening is a mixed one, but none the less interesting for that. Mrs. Carrie Milward will appear first in a cornet solo, after which there will be ath letic events of all kinds. First on the list will be a wrestling match between 'Gene Cole of Minneapolis, champion light weight of the northwest, and Billy Cook of St. Paul. The contest will be strictly on its merits. A double clog dance and a song by two of the best known artists in the country will follow, after which Savage and Jen kins, comedy acrobats, will appear. One of the crowning events of the evening will come near the last, when the Norwegian Turners will appear in several of their wonderful exhibitions. BETA THETAJM BANQUET 3Veaxly One Hundred Member* Dine at the Commercial Club. About 75 members of the Beta Theta Pi fraternity attended the annual banquet of the university chapter and Northwest ern Dorg Club at the Commercial Club rooms last evening. The meeting was the most enthusiastic in the history of Beta Theta Pi in the northwest, especial cause for congratulation upon the past year's work being found in the completion of the new and elegant chapter house facing the university campus on University ave nue SE. For this chapter-house the fra ternity is indebted in a large measure to Colonel Frank M. Joyce, who was untiring in his efforts to carry the plan through. | Appreciation of his work was shown in I frequent expressions of gratitude on the part of students and alumni last night. Charles L. Somers of St. Paul, the treas urer of the society, gave a detailed re j port of the financing of the chapter I house enterprise and of the financial con- I dition of the society, which brought cheers from those present. He was followed dur ing the course of the banquet with fig ures, showing the condition of the gen : eral fraternity, by Robert M. Thompson j and remarks concerning the local chapter i i by its president, George D. Montgomery. Judge E. A. Jaggard presided as toast | master. All of the toasts related to I "Beta Theta Pi." Uev. Marion D. Shut- j i ter discussed "Its Genesis"; Bishop Joyce, j his son, Colonel Frank M. Joyce, alias j "Father" Joyce, and his grandson, "Baby" I Joyce, "Its Generations"; F. D. Monfort, I "Its Chapters"; Edward Sanford, "Its j Menage"; J, S. McLain, "Its Emblems"- i ! Joseph W. Beach, "Its Graduates"; M. I i Leroy Arnold, "Its Undergrads"; Charles! j W. Fee, "Its Athletes"; Howard H. Wood- ; | man, "Its Friends, the Enemy." Charles W. Eberlein of St. Paul sang a solo of j toasts to various prominent members of f the alumni present and absent. Songs by the chapter, which was out in force, im promptu speeches and music by the chap ter orchestra added to the pleasures of i the evening. Use of lignite" Extensive Domestic l Tse Experi ments in Minneapolis. W. D. Washburn said yesterday that 125 families in Minneapolis are now mak ing a test of Washburn lignite coal from the senator's mines in North Dakota, and that the results are very satisfactory.

NO CANDY MACHINE HERE j GREAT CHOCOLATE DROPPER [AI Paris , Hasn't Much Faith in Its j Ability to Compete With | " Human Fingers. i Chocolate machines, which are reported to be on the verge of revolutionizing the ! manufacture of candy in some states, have not invaded i Minnesota so far. $If Minne apolis manufacturers are to' be believe*, the day will never come- when candy machines can. begin to turn out "< the fin ished article in fine confections that is now "hand , made." The report has been in persistent circu lation in* the press for some ■ time »that candy manufacturers of six' middle I west ern states had;jointly agreed to Intro duce the chocolate machines * into their business,' and that Minnesota was the only ; state which still held out against the proposition. Each machine was said to haye sa i capacity, equal to : thirty em ployes: Upon the introduction of the la bor-saving devices so many candy-makers were to be thrown out of employment by each machine. .. AI Paris of the Paris-Murton Wholesale Candy Manufacturing establishment,' says | that while there, are chocolate drop ma- chines, it has been imposible to improve them to such an extent that they can turn out first-class goods. He says flatly the I day will never come when machine-made ■ candy of the first grade, especially in deli cate chocolate confections, will begin to compare with that which is now moulded into shape and substance by human fin gers. No overtures have yet been made to his concern to join any sort of a candy combine for the introduction of the choco late machine. MAYOR AMES^DECREES Tells Saloonkeepers Just How Far The* Can Go. Following his verbal admonitions to the saloonkeepers he visited in the course of his slumming tour Saturday night, Mayor Ames yesterday issued a proclamation, ad dressed to the craft generally in the city, stating what he would expect of them dur ing the ensuing years. He assured them that they would receive ample police pro tection so long as they conducted their business in proper fashion. He then pro ceeds to lay down the law as follows: "Saloons will not bo allowed to have cur tains, screens or door 3 which shall obstruct the view of any one- standing within the barroom proper. "Women and boys and girls under age will not be tolerated in saloons except where bona fide restaurants are maintained. "Communications between saloon-rooms and adjoining restaurants must be obliterated or kept securUy closed, or a separate saloon license will be required. " 'Tough joints,' where the proprietors or bartenders are in the business for the ap parent purpose of making drunk and robbing people, will, on satisfactory proof, have their licenses revoked. "Saloons, as fast as they become the re sorts of the tough and disorderly element, will ba driven out of the business. "If saloonkeepers are good citizens they will aid me and thereby help to remove the odium wh'ch now hangs over disorderly re sorts. " 'Shoots' or 'dummies' connecting a saloon with any adjoining or overhead property are positively forbidden and must be removed. "Hereafter all transfers of licenses must be In writing by the mayor upon the face of the licenses. "In places where licenses are held as se curity by outside parties a certificate of li cense from tne maycr's office will be given and placed in & conspicuous place in the saloon." HANLEY'S TRAGIC DEATH Took: Strychnine Only Five Hours After Wedding. Frank M. Hanley, a former resident of this city, committed suicide in Seattle yes terday after being married only five hours. Hanley became engaged to a handsome Se attle widow, Mrs. Rose Breidenstein, • and before [ marrying her made a confession that he had a few years previous betrayed a young girl under the promise of mar riage. Mrs: Breidenstein forgave him, however, and yesterday their marriage ceremony was performed, but Hanley could not forgive himself. Every effort was made to counteract the effects. of | the strychnine that the unfor tunate man took, but to no avail, as he expired within an hour, to the last brood ing over the wrong committed years ago. ! The tragic deatfli of their son came as a great shock to the aged parents, Mr. and Mrs. Patrick Hanley, living at 432 Uni versity avenue NE. Mr. Hanley dis credited the alleged confession of his son, declaring that he was always of a quiet disposition. COURT NEWS SMITH WOULDN'T TALK Refused to Answer Ramsey County , Grand Jury Questions. . The Ramsey county grand jury sprung a sensation yesterday in the investigation of I the bribery charges against Building In- ; ; spector Haas when it informed Judge Kel ley < that Henry Smith, chief clerk in the inspector's office, had declined to affirm or deny the charge that he had at divers times been forced to pay his superior various sums of money in consideration for his re tention in office. The court ruled that witness was bound to answer whether or not he had under any guise whatsoever contributed moriey for his appointment to or retention in office. He wished witness jto understand that if he still refused to answer such a question, he would be adjudged in contempt of court. With this understanding Smith is said to have given the jury the information sought. TAX SALE NULL Decision" of Judgre Brill in Ramsey ;'-•; District Court. Over in Ramsey county the whole de linquent tax sale of May 4, 1896, has been | ■ declared null- and void by Judge Brill of ■ the district court because of the failure of | the county auditor to give proper notice of: i the - sale. The statutes require the notice ' to be published once in each of two sue- j | cessive | weeks in . a designated newspaper, | the first publication to be at least fifteen ; days before the sale. The notice for the i sale of May 4, 1896, was published six times in one week, the first publication only six i days before the sale. The loss to the i county by this decision will be great, but I there are no means at present of ascer ! taining the amount. : ■ ' i i _—_^_^__«^_^___^^___ i VICTORIA !

Nokemeyer, banker, of Churches Perry, N. D., Is at the Nicollet. Mr. Nolte meyer's home is in the western part of Ramsey, the home county of Senator Hans brough. "Senator Hansbrough is a candidate to suo ceed himself two years from now," said Mr. Noltenieyer, "and North Dakota politicians are beginning to line up for the fray. I see that he has already secured the Indorsement of Colonel Lounsberry and Major Edwards, the two military men of title in the news paper profession. Hansbrough and his man agers were very successful four years ago in doing away with all opposition, and the senator will probably use the same tactics again. Senator Hale of our county is a hold over. He will undoubtedly vote for Hans brough. He wa# elected after a hard fight. In the election of the two representatives from his home district, or rather in the nominations, the senator will find every inch of the ground bitterly contested. The fac tions in Ramsey county politics, which have been against him for some time, will be In the convention ready to turn a trick against him. Four years ago the senator was elected without much help from his home district and he may be able to land again, but he la in for a fight." "Senator Pettigrew will be home in the spring," said D. H. Cambell, banker, of Brookings, S. D., "and that will probably end his political career so far as the people of South Dakota are concerned. The result of the last election tshows that Pettigrew is far from popular. His vote in the legislature the other day was just half of the majority that he claimed before election. I have lived in the state for twenty years. We have always had a factional fight of some kind in the republican ranks. It has so happened that the faction w.hich contained Pettigrew was not my faction. When Pettigrew l«ft the party or the party left him, I believe that the probability of factional rows was lessened. The senator will probably make one more try for the senate two years hence and quit. It is not in the cards for him to win. South Dakota is as safely republican from now on as lowa. Most of the old farmers' alliance are back in the fold, and it will be years before we see another wave of that kind, if we ever do. For the first time in years we suoceeded in electing a solid republican legis lative delegation from our county last fall, and the same is true of many other coun ties." North Dakotans who recently visited the city believe that Consul General Bray of Melbourne will visit his old home in the flickertail state during the coming summer. Mr. Bray came from Grand Forks and has been making an excellent record as consul general. Professor A. D. Games of Minneapolis, who has been looking after his real estate in terests in western North Dakota, te also preparing to do some immigration work for Oliver county in that state. Oliver county has a large amount of farming and grazing: land underlaid with coal. The postofflce de partment will be requested to establish sev eral new mail routes. R. I». Elder of Lisbon is ill in his room at the St. James. Mr. Elder arrived In the city Sunday and was taken with grip yesterday afternoon. He is an old soldier and is being looked after by several of his old comrades. J. E. Truesdale of Owatonna is visiting in the city. Mr. Truesdale has been a resi dent of Owatonna for thirty years. He did not help drive the Indians out, but he ar rived there soon after. "Our people would have been pleased to have seen Evans elected senator," said Mr. Truesdale, "but as it is they are satisfied with Clapp and they are gratified to see the job done so quickly." Mr. Truesdale, who is well known in North Da kota, bears much resemblance to John Miller of Duluth, formerly governor of North Da kota, and Miller has been declared a good double for ex-President Grant. But Grant and Truesdale lined up for comparison once and the latter says the resemblance was very remote. George S. Montgomery of Wahpeton, N. D., is at the St. James. "North Dakota is solidly republican from n»w on," said Mr. Mont gomery. "The people who came into the state in the last three years came from dis tricts where they had been taught the wis dom of republican doctrine. The republican organization is in shape to bold this new vote in line." J. Hughes, one of the prominent ranoh own ers of Brandon, Man., is in the city. "West ern Canada is developing rapidly," said Mr. Hughes. "People are pouring into that coun try from all parts of the continent. There are many arrivals from this state and the D"akotas. Many of these later arrivals are going into stock raising. The big stratoh of country west of Brandon is well adapted for raising stock and is being rapidly utilized for that purpose. We ship east and west. Our eastern market is Montreal and many of the shipments west are consigned to the gold country, principally Dawson City. American goods, especially shoes, are obtaining recogni tion in the Canadian market." P. Holen, merchant, Is here from Argyle, Minn. Mr. Holen says that the people of that section of the state were.given a good enough object lesson on the need of drain age last fall and will have more of it this spring. H. C. Misner, merchant, of Euclid, Minn., is at tlia Nicollet. Mr. Misner states that the farmers of his part of the state will be satis fied if granted a fair show to get their seed 4n right this spring. The fall weather was contrary and even harvesting was attended by difficulties. Several of the larger farms around Euclid are being carved into smaller tracts and sold to new comers from the east W. E. Powell of Grand Harbor, N. D., is at the Nicollet. "Ramsey county expects a big share of the immigration for that part of the state," said Mr. Powell, "and her busi ness men are preparing to nail all of it that the can. The amount of new land which will be broken for crop this spring in that part of the «*ate is very large." C. H. Hooker of Wausau, Wis., is at the West. Mr. Hooker is interested in railroad contracts. There are some extensions planned for Wisconsin this year, he says. One is on the North-Western from Antigo to Merrill. "Among Those Preaent." Edgar Anderson, attorney, of Crary, N. D., is at the St. James. H. Lauritsen of Tyler, Minn., is here on a business mission. F. M. Putnam, the Carrington implement man, is here to interview the wholesalers. W. J. Walters of Stevens Point is at the Nicollet. J. S. Kemp of Excelsior is spending the day here. Z. Davidson of Minnewaukan, N. D., is transacting business with Minneapolis whole salers. C. J. Norby of Sisßeton, N. D., Is at the West. C. J. Harris of Benson is at the Beaufort.
