HOLT WASN'T YANSANTED
XO MERCY FOR CLARA MOORE
Pal of vMollie Morris Couldn't Work
"the Stern Municipal Judge—
» Got Three Mouths.
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
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
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

Mayor Ames supplemented his instructions

Flambeau Fair Prove* to Be Very
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
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.

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.

Board of Education Wrestles With
SOME SALOONS TO BE SPARED
That Is If Robert Pratt Can Have
Hli Way-lp to the
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
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
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.

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 &

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

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 ■
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
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

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
"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.
