The success of the well-known shop lifter, Mollie Morris, in securing her par don from the workhouse at St. Paul and :he publicity given the affair, have jogged ihe memory of Municipal Court Clerk Xeilsou of a similar oecurence in Minne apolis. In June, of 1899 Mollie Morris and her companion, Clara Moore, were arrested for shoplifting in a well-known dry goods store on Xicollet avenue. When taken to the central station the women were found to have skirts with deep pockets adapted to wholesale operations. The Moore woman was sent to the workhouse for ninety days. Mollie Morris, however, escaped on a technicality. At the time Judge Holt, sentenced the woman he was ignorant of her true career and ihat of her companion. But it was not long before negotiations began to be i onducted on tne part of their friends >imilar to the operations of last week in St. Paul. The Chicago contingent was soon on hand with big bunches of money and oratorical effects belaboring Judge Holt to release the prisoner. The same sick "dodge" and "ignorance" of the bad company she found herself in were worked on the officials of this city. But all to no avail. Judge Holt remained obdurate, re fusing to listen to the Chicago parties. The persistence with which the friends of this woman followed her case is illus trated by the fact that when Judge Holt left the city to enjoy his vacation on his father's farm, they still pursued him. r<he story is that his honor was engaged in the pastoral employment of the plow man in a country field when he was hailed by a dashingly arrayed woman, who reined in her horse at the fence cor ner for a moment's talk with the judge. "I have .come to see you. Judge Holt in the Interest of Miss Clara Moore," said the woman in her most charming manner. Judge Holt turned his gaze skyward. Then slowly picked up the reins at the side of his plow. 'Gee. haw! Get up here! Move alone Charles." The last thing that the dashing Miss Moore s friend saw was the sturdy plow man sticking to his furrow. Clara Moore did her ninety days' full THE WEATHER The Predictions.

G. .Staveley of this city on Mon day, Jan. 28, ai Seattle, Wash., is an nounced in Seattle advices. Mrs. Carrie Larson died yesterday at the age of 90 years. Mrs. Larson lived with her daughter, 2o Cooper .street. Death is thought to 'have resulted from old age. Carl Sable, a car repairer on, the Great Northern, will lose the sight of an. eye as the result of the slipping of a wrench yes terday afteruooo while he was working in the Great Northern railroad yards. Mayor Ames supplemented his instructions to saloon-keepers with a quiet talk yesterday to the local brewers, in which he defined what would be expected of them during the next two years. The brewers control a great many of the saloons in Minneapolis, paying the license fee, furnishing the beer and prac tically con-trolliDg the wfejole business. John T. Hoffman and 11. C. Austin were formerly in the meat business at 3012 Twen ty-seventh street S. Five weeks ago Hoffman sold out for $75, it is said. Later, report says, a dispute arose over the deal, and yes terday Hoffman entered the store and at tempted to assume proprietorship. A merry set-to followed, in which' Austin apparently had the best of it. Austin has now barri caded the doors of his place and Hoffman, it is said, will carry the matter into the courts. IT'S AWINNER Flambeau Fair Prove* to Be Very Suceeamful. The second-evening of the Flambeau club fair at ,Cen-tury hall, which will continue ull the week, was' even ■ more enjoyable than the first. The attendance was larger, and the- handsomely decorated hall, was crowded to the doors, while the gallery waft full to overflowing. The program was'stn excellent one. ,The athletic contests were especially good. The candidates in the various voting con tests are working hard —or rather their friends are working hard—and it is expect ed that before the. end of the week, each one of the young women will'have several thousand ballots to her <cr«*H%. • The program for to-night is one of the most interesting that has yet been evolved. It consists of magic, music and cake walking by artists of note.. Bruno Warnecke will give the exhibition in. magic, and many of his tricks are said to be startling in the extreme. Little Hazel Rarer, petite comedienne, will then appear, followed by Mrs. W. G. Stockman in a mandolin solo. Frank O'Xeil, Dutch come dian, will next entertain the audience, and the,evening will close with a grand cake walk by the b>st rag time colored artists of the twin cities, who have been-attracted by tlie handsome prizes offered by the Flambeau club. TROUBLEJ-OR VAN Governor Haw DilHouKy In Naming Minneapolis Boiler Inspector. The governor has another Minneapolis "family row" on his hands. There are I just two candidates for boiler inspector from the fifth district, all others having pulled out. They are E. E. Steele and M. A, Patterson. Both are fourth warders. Steele is backed by Sherman Smith and Patterson by \V. P. Roberts. Governor Van Sant said some time ago that he would appoint whichever candi date was indorsed by the Hennepin dele gation. Patterson went after them and got thirteen of the nineteen republicans on his list. This would simplify matters but for the fact that some of those who signed Patterson's petition have written personal letters asking for Steele's ap pointment. The governor does not know which man is the stronger, and friends of each one are being hustled over to the capitol in squads to intercede with the executive. It is quite likely that the dele gation will be called together to meet the governor, in order to see. which man. is really favored by the majority. GOOD ARMY OPENING War Department Wants Hospital C'orjtK Men. The army recruiting officer in Minne apolis is making an excellent record this month. Applicants for enlistment are coming in reasonably fast ard the percent age of men who pass the examinations is above the average. The war department has issued a bulletin asking for men to serve in the hospital corps. Minor de fects of vision oorerctible by glasses are no bar to enlistment in this corps. No man will be taken who is not 5 feet 4 inches in height and of common school education, able-bodied, of good character and habits, intelligent and a citizen of the United States. The department especially wants men of exi>erience as cooks. Men who have a knowledge of clerical work and drugs or understand driving and the care of animals and also the handling of tools. Two reputable persons must fur nish a testimonial of character for each applicant. LABOR WILL PROTEST Dislikes County Board* Action With Regard to Printing Contract. W. T. Drake, president of the Allied Printing Trades council, said yesterday that every, labor organization in" the city would protest against the action of the board of county commissioners in voting down the resolution requiring the use of the council's on all county printing. The matter will also be brought before the Trades and Labor council, and the dele gates of the different organizations repre sented in the central body will later take the subject up with their unions. The printers say it will go hard politically with the three members of the board who voted against the resolution. DR. 0. N. MURDOCK DEAD Well Known PhyMician Pasties Away After a Brief Illnesti. Dr. O. N. Murdock, at 6 o'clock last evening died of the grip at his residence, 1016 Second avenue S. He had been ill but a few days. Dr. Murdock was born in New York state in 1&58. He graduated from Oberlin college and received his medical diploma at Ann Arbor. He prac ticed in New York and Wisconsin. He spent four ffiaxe in Everett, Wash., and came to Minneapolis six years ago. He leaves a wife, daughter and two brothers, Dr. A. J. Murdock of this city and Dr. Greeley Murdock of Taylors Falls. MRS. L. S. OSGOOD DIES. Mrs. Lucinda S. Osgood, wife of Benjamin Osgood, filed yesterday at her home, 757 E Sixth street, St. Paul. The funeral arrange ments will be announced later. THE MINNEAPOLIS JOUBNAL. ARE THEY DODGING? Board of Education Wrestles With Saloon Problem. SOME SALOONS TO BE SPARED That Is If Robert Pratt Can Have Hli Way-lp to the Council. Whatever action is taken in the matter of the ten saloon men whose places of business, It has been found, are located inside the 400-foot school limit, it is the city council rather than the board of edu cation that will have to bear the responsj bility. The board of education started the movement, but shows no great zeal in pushing it. The members of the board would much rather the council would as sume the responsibility for the next step which, logically, would be to compel the saloons to move. The board, at Its meeting yesterday, struggled with the question of what was the proper course in the matter. Director Hawley was disposed to go further thaa make a stereotyped reference to the coun cil. The board should urge the council to take immediate action to compel the 6a loon men to move, he thought. Director Pratt was more conservatively inclined. And besides, he wanted exceptions made in the case-of one of the two saloons in the Blame district, included in the list There was a kind if understanding when the new Blame school was located there, he said, that the above saloon was not to be disturbed. More than that a previous city attorney had ruled that the distance from the saloon to the school should be measured by the traveled route instead of by a straight line, and that had been the understanding heretofore. Again, there were other saloons in that district that were as much or more of a menace to the morals of the pupils than the ones pro scribed, even though they were outside the limit. The other members present had no opin ions on the subject. The final result was that the matter was referred to the council with the recommendation that the council "give it proper attention." McMillan Re»ign N , Director McMillan gave his colleagues on the board a liUle surprise by t«nder mg -his resignation as a member of the building committee. The others urged him to stay, but he was determined and the resignation was finally accepted. Mr McMillan is said to be disappointed with the make-up of the committee this year, and rather than continue the inharmoni ous relations of the past two years chose to resign. It is said 'that the vacancy will not be filled. The other members of It's an Awful Spectacle Southeast Minneapolis has stopped asserting lhat the university is the greatest educational institution in the country long enough, to consider the "bulletin" board nuisance. A hideous affair about forty cubits high and a whole block in length has been erected on Washington avenue, beyond Union street. Persons whose houses face on I nion street have an inspiring landscape made up of the back view of the board— which is not so bad as the front at that—with its serried braces stretching away fine perspective. The afflicted residents have growled and roared and protested, and finally have secured an order from the city engineer to have alley openings cut through the sign board, thus destroying the depressing effect to some extent. The board stands on property belonging to the street commissioner of the ward and he, naturally has not been very "celerious" in opening up the monster. This incident has so aroused the people of Southeast Minneapolis to th bill board horror that they are agitating action by the legislature. Some authorities say that the city council can regulate such defacements by limiting the size of the so called bulletin boards. Defenseless patrons of the Interurban car line are accumulating bad cases of sore eyes from enforced daily inspection of painted horrors which line the route between Minneapolis and St. Paul. the committee are Messrs, Hicks and Pratt. Superintendent Jordan's report showed that there had been 35,173 pupils admitted into 'the schools during the term ending Jan. 18, an increase of 1,653 pupils over the figures for the corresponding time last year. There are 682 pupils on half ses sions. This is a considerably smaller number than usual, explained, the super intendent said, by the fact that an un usual effort was made at the beginning of this present term to fill the highest grade rooms to the maximum without regard to grading, in order to make room for chil dren in the lower grades. The board accepted the bid of Stedman & Refleld of Hartford for the loan of $70, --000 at 3 per cent interest, with a quarter of 1 per cent commission. LEASES IN THE WAY Sohlitss Theater Deal Tied Ii» In definitely-, General Manager Wuesthoff of the Schlitz Brewing company, Milwaukee, ad mits the failure of his company's plans to secure ground for a palm garden between the Masonic Temple and the West hotel on Hennepin avenue. The company was hot after the property and had the deal all but closed when its managers became cognizant of the fact that the property was tied up with leases which it would be difficult to secure. If the lease proposition, admittedly a serious one, can be satisfactorily arranged the Schlitz#people will immediately ac quire the Hennepin property. Mr. Wuest hoff says his company will now put a sa loon building on the Sixth street lot pur chased in connection with the theater scheme. IDENTIFICATION BUREAU Minnesota Sheriffs Want One at ."_■ Washington, D. C. ,' , The Sheriffs' Association of Minnesota, now meeting in. St. Paul, yesterday passed a resolution, requesting congress \to eaact a bill for the establishment of a central identification bureau at Washington, where the records and photographs of the crim inals throughout the country may be kept. The officers for the coming year are: W. C. Sargent, St. Louis county, president; Phil T. Megaarden, Hennepin county, vice president; Phil C. Justus, Ramsey county, secretary; ; P. J. Lindquist, Goodhue coun ty, treasurer. The executive committee is composed of the officers of .the associa tion and Theodore Thorsen of Glenwood, John Johnson, Jr., of Austin and George W. Forsythe of St. James. RAMSEY LOSES HEAVILY. County Auditar W. R. Johnson of Ramsey county estimates the failure of county officials to comply -with the iaw in selling property for delinquent taxes has cost the county $150, --o<X> in the last ten years. All property sold in 1896 must be resold for the amount of the taxes, which are estimated at $100,000. All certificates purchased at that sale must be returned. The county must pay the 10 per cent interest on the certificates, which will aggregate $50,000. Dr. Hosmer, Germ Killer It is next to impossible for disease germs to wriggle past the sentinels and out posts with which Dr. Hosmer has surrounded the public library. Every morning the librarian is furnished by the city health department with a list of addresses of persons who are afflicted with contagious disease. If the library has any books in the hands of those persons a postal card 1b at once Bent to them -with instructions to hold the book until the quarantine has been raised. The book is fumigated by the health authorities at the house before It is returned. At the library it is sterilized with the aid of formaldehide. This latter process is simple, being nothing more than a large air-tight box in which the gas is generated. During the smallpox scare of a year ago the books returned from homes and people who had been afflicted with or subjected to the disease were burned. This has not been necessary tais year on account of the careful and accurate system ©f keep i lag tab on all c&ses of contagious disease. ON MATRIMONY BENT Great Gipsy Convocation to Be Held in Minneapolis. ITS OBJECT WILL BE UNIQUE It I* /tor /So Oilier. Purpose Than to Promote Matrimony Among ■ Eligible*. . Minneapolis is soon to have a most unique convocation for the promotion of matrimony. To it will come not the old maids of the land, nor the bachelors, nor those whose marital felicity is so great that they are eager to have all of the single of the world abandon their forlorn state. It will not be an assemblage of a promatrimonial society, even. Nothing of the kind; it will simply be a gathering of the clans of a peculiar people—the Gipsies. Early next spring, when the frosts have given way before the balmy south winds, all over the country little groups of swarthy "wanderers and pilgrims through the earth" will "turn Minneapolisward and their Jaded horses day after day will plod toward this city as the temporary Mecca of these kings and queens (for Gipsies are all kings and queens), until by the end of the first week in the balmy, love-inspir ing month of June the Midway district (for.it is there they love to gather) will be thronged with Gipsy bands, each con taining its eligibles, black-haired, bright eyed, brown beauties come to be wooed by the dusky youths, handsome and dark enough to be either villains or. poets. Then under the soft evening skies of June will begin such a wholesale wooing as the Midway has never known. June has been chosen, of course, because the Gipsies know, if they have not read, that "In the spring a young man's fancy light ly turns to thoughts of love." in short, the Gypsies will abandon for the time the work of fortune-telling for fortune-mak ing, or, perhaps better still, fate-making. Proclaimed b>* the Kinu, This is all true, for the "King of Gipsies" has spoken it. The king is known by the unpoetic name of Isaac R. Wells. He is now in Clinton, lowa, gathering the clans from that city and announcing to them his proclamation for the grea>t June matri monial convocation. He says that hun dreds of bands of his race are coming hither and that by the middle of the month of roses there will be in Minneapo lis the largest assemblage of Gipsies ever gathered in this country. There will be no convention ihall needed, no papers on majtrimony will be read. Parliamentary rules will have no place. King Isaac an nounces "unblushingly" that the princi pal object of the assemblage is to let the nonrelated young people of the tribes he come acquainted so That they may marry among their owi people. Should Take Warning. "Among their own people" teas an ominous sound and should serve as ample warning to any gay youths who may think that the coming convocation will offer op portunities for quiet little flirtations with dark-eyed beauties here on matrimonial purposes intent. Last summer a similar gathering of the clans took place at Xewburg. X. Y. BUILD NEW LUMBER MILL A S( V\LO.\-BROOKS CO. MOVE Company Incorporated Yesterday Is Planning a Bis Modern Mill at Cloanet. The new Brooks-Scanlon Lumber com pany is planning the erection of & big saw mill at Cloquet, one of the best equipped in the west. M. J. Scanlon and D. F. Brooks, of the new company, are at Clo quet to-day looking over the ground and arranging the details. The Brooks are well known as elevator men all through the west. A few years ago they disposed of some of their ele vator interests and became heavily inter ested in lumber. They are interested in toe Scanlon-Gipson Lumber company. During the past few years they have made some big purchases of pine land and are now among the largest owners of pine stumpage in the west. The main office of the new company will be In Minaeapo lis, but the yards and mills are to be at Cloquet. The Brooke-Seanlon company incorpor ated yesterday with capital etock of $500, --000. It is a distinct concern from the Scanlon-Gipson company, which will con tinue to operate its mills in this city Cass Lake and McKerson. THE GOODNOW LECTURE. Consua General Goodnow has great reason to be gratified at the royal reception which Minneapolitans are giving him. A most notable greeting will be that at Wesley church, Friday evening. "China," which has been so full of interest and concern, will be the consul's subject. H« will treat it from the standpoint of a diplomat. This, of course, will enable htm to take many viewpoints, including social, religious and intellectual life. Doubtless the most inter esting point of discussion will be the China of the future and the attitude of the na tions toward It Consul General Goodnow s presence at this time is truly an event. His fellow townsmen, friends and neighbors will seek this opportunity to express to him their high appreciation of his work as a repre sentative citizen in th« far east. Seats will be reserved at the Metropolitan Music Store without extra charge. Bishop Joyce, the resident bishop of toe Methodist church, who is so conversant with the affairs of China, is to preside. Dr. Northrop, president of the state university, and Dr. Bridgman, president of Hamline uni versity, are also to be present. The Wesley quartet will give an introductory number. . TOLD AT TAVERNS There is hardly a day in the year that Min neapolis has not some Implement men on her visitors' lists. C. A. MeArtnur of Aberdeeu has been here several days and a few of the machinery men gathered from other points have been passing ground tlie circle the story of the swift trains that scoot over some of the short lines in South 'Dakota. One of them steams up at Aberdeen and makes tbe run to Breckenridge. In Wisconsin this line would be known as "the blueberry." In North Dakota they would call it "the cannon ball." la South Dakota it la tbe "trailing anbutus." But any way, "Yank" RoWnsoa is conductor. One day last week the train was making it slower than usual, and that is pretty bad. Two knots an hour was about the rate. A nervous lady with a boy who looked 15 if he was a day were among the passengers. "Yank" and his punch, hove in sight and the lady handed him a, half fare ticket for the boy. "Isn't that boy over 10 years old?" asked "Yank," rather pointedly. The nervous lady straightened up and looked dangerous. "He wasn't when vt& left Aberdeen," she said, "but I think he will b« a voter by the time ye reach Breckenridge." Yank had all the information he wanted, and one of McArthur's friends here claims that there are faster trains out of Aberdeen. W. H. Stokes, one of the prominent millers of South Dakota, with big interests at Water town, is at the 'Xicolleu Mr. Stokes states that the trade of Dakota mills Is maintaining a very encouraging average. The mills of Xorth and South Dakota export some flour, but their main hold i 3 the home trade. What exports are placed to their credit go to Euro pean ports. The past few years have brought inquiries from the Pacific 6eaboard for quota tions, 6ut the Dakota milla so far have not made much of a bid for trade in that quarter. The mining camps of Montana cons-ume a large quantity of the Dakota product. The old North Dakota Millers' Association, of 'which John il. Turner was manager, made the strongest bid of any Dakota concern for European trade. When the association failed, Mr. Turner still camped on the trail of conti nental business as a broker at Hamburg. Mr. and Mrs. C. B. Newton and daughter of Red Lake FaWs are at the Nicollet, return ing from a visit to the old home in Cleveland. .Mr. X'ewton is president and manager of the Red Lake Falls Lumber company. "We have plenty of logs to keep our mill running night and day for some months," said Mr. Newton. "I believe the same is true of almost every other mill in the northern rart of the state. The cut this winter is not as big as that of previous years, for the rea son that the mili companies had a big supply of logs lea at the end of last season. We look to the prairie country, especially the Dakotae, for our best market. In the early part of 1900 the demand for lumber of a!l kinds was a marvel. Had the season been right in the wheat belt, I believe that the sales for last year would have beaten all rec ords. Aa it Is now it is impossible to tell what the demand will be for the first half of the year. Prospects of a good crop will stiffen the trade after July 1." J. H. Lockwood and daughter of Rugby, X. D., are here en route to Texas. ''The towns of "western Dakota are prosperous," said Mr. Lockwood. 'The work dor© by the railroads in bringing new people into these states has borne fruit quickly. Three years have brought big changes. 1 believe that the next three years will see a big advance in the price of good land all over the northwest. Cheap fuel in the shape of lignite is attracting many farmers to the western part of the state, where they are settling upon land that, although rich in soil, has been free grazing territory for the herds of the stockmen for years. The Mouse river valley in western Xorth Dakota has a bright future, and in the course of time will be just as far-famed as the Red river valley. We have an advantage in the western part of the state in the fact that stock-raising is becoming a big industry. We need better roads, but improvement in that line will keep pace with, the rapid growth of the country." S. B. Cook, C. R. Musser and W. D. Burt of Muscatine, lowa, are at the West. Mr. Musser is prominent in the lumber trade of his section of lowa. ■Mr. and <Mr&. Dayton of Pilot Grove, Minn., are at the Vendoine. C. <H. Prouty of Mound City, B. D. s Is at the W«st. Mr. Prouty believes that the next few years will bring more railroads into that section of the state. Charles H. Dixon of Enderlin, X. D., is at the Xioollet. They Came to Town. P. Jorgensen, of Lakota, X. D., is one of the visiting implement men. Nelson county went republican and most of the government land has been turned over to new settlers. W. L. Peterson, of Benson, Minn., Is at the St. James. Benson ia contributing some to the immigration movement west. lowa is Bending people to take their piacea. M- J. Bennett, of Minot, X. D., is in the city. Minot ia interested In improvements promised by the Great Northern road. C. T. Studness, a prominent merchant of western North Dakota, is here from Churchs Ferry. Flax carried the western North Dakota farmer safely over last year, and he will «eed many acres with it this season. J. Kiefer, of Moorhead, it at the Xicollet. Moorhead had a very hot mayoralty light a year ago and is preparing for another In the spring. W. G. Tubbs, a business man of Hanltir. eon, X. D., is at the West. Maurice Schindler, of Sisseton, S. D., is in Minneapolis interviewing tha patent attor neys. J. F. McDowell, merchant, of Wav«rly, Minn., is at the St James. Mr. McDowell was a friend and ally of John LJnd in the last campaign. Isidor Weinstein, the Hetena merchant. Is at the Nlcollet. The cities of Montana con tain many big retailers who are also en gaged in wholesaling, Mr. Weinstein is one of them. F. W.

' Ann Daggett, aged 85, who has sued Robert Irwin and other relatives to recover 33,000, which* she ■ asserts,: they obtained from . her, under false pretences, proved a refractory -witness when examined in Judge Simpson's court yesterday. She became very, indignant when questioned as to the smallest details of her every day life, and declared that all she wanted was the money taken away from her; instead, she t was forced to come i into court and answer a lot of senseless questions. She became so agitated. that the court finally ordered a recess, in which she was given an opportunity to compose herself. 'Who Shall Buy? When the county comissionera passed the bill presented by Kuhle & Ellerbe, for $100.75, for repairs on the county surveyor's instru ments, ten taxpayers demanded an appeal.
