Pierce took place yesterday afternoon at the residence of his son Gerald in Chicago. Friends .from Valparaiso, Ind., and Minneapolis, In both of which cities Senator Pierce had presided, were represented at the services. Rev. Robert Beer, one of the boyhood friends of Mr. Pierce, preached the funeral sermon. Rev. Robert S. Ingles, Jackson, Mich., and son-in-law of Mr. Pierce, also spoke. The honorary pallbearers were: William Perm N'lxon, H. H. Kohlsaat, John A. King, J. W. Raymond, Minneapolis; Judge Richard S. T. Tvthil, LeGran W.

Later it will be transferred to Valparaiso and interred in the burial lot where rest the remains of three generations of the Pierces. YOU OUGHT TO GO To the Roosevelt (lab's Great Min strel Show. Minneapolis people should not forget that the minstrel show to be given by the Roosevelt Rough Riders Feb. 25 and 26, at the Lyceum, is to raise funds to send that representative Minneapolis organization to Washington to participate in the inauguration parade. It is no idle boast to say that there will be no neater and better drilled club on Pennsylvania avenue on March 4 than the Minneapolis Roosevelt Marching club. Captain Belden will be in command and the club's own drum corps will be in the lead. Every loyal Minneapolis citizen should come out on one of the above dates and help the boys. Heavy expenses have been in curred by the club in closing its arrange ments in Washington and in providing for transportation. Congressman Fletcher is arranging to make it pleasant for the club and will take it to call on President McKinley Tuesday morning following the inaugural parade. Minneapolis and the northwest will be boomed by the boys on this trip and the gvod old enterprising spirit which has brought bo much credit to Minneapolis should be exerted to its utmost to help along this enterprise. IN GREAT DEMAND Railroad and Warehouse • oniiui*- Mlonerg Are Very Popular. The three railroad and warehouse com missioners have more trouble on their hands now than Governor Van Sant. There are over 900 applications on file for posi tio&s in the grain department, and the pressure from candidates and their friends is tremendous. Since the announcement of the names of the two chief weighmae ters the friendly interest being displayed in Messrs. Mills, Miller and Staples has been redoubled. Candidates are looking daily for further announcements. The commissioners are held up on street cor- ners, and if they have the temerity to show up at their offices, are besieged by streams of visitors. The commissioners escaped Saturday on the pretext of a tour of inspection to St. James. The North-Western and the Min neapolis & St. Louis have put in a new interlocking plant at that place, in order to prevent collisions at the junction. It cannot be operated until it has been in spected and approved by the commission. Some subordinate appointments in the weighing department will be announced in a few days, probably by Wednesday. Interest centers in the race for the sec retaryship. Secretary Teisberg still holds on and may retain the place permanently. The other active candidates are W. E. Verity, a well known newspaper man, and A. C. Clausen, the former chief inspector. Clausen is backed by the same St. Paul syndicate which managed Clapp's senator ial campaign. Verity has some strong Minneapolis support, but is handicapped by the fact that Minneapolis also has a candidate for the chief inspectorship. MEMORIAL SERVICES They Are Held for Jmiuo Russell at Plymouth. Services in memory of the late Judge Russell were held at the Plymouth Con gregational church yesterday morning, and also in the Sunday school opening ex ercises which followed the church ser vice. There was a large attendance of members of the court and of the bar, and of fraternities to which Judge Russell be longed. The family pew was draped with ; green and at its entrance stood a palm I and a wreath of flowers. There were also I floral decorations about the pulpit and the ! choir rail. Dr. Hallock delivered the memorial ad dress in which he said that next to his family Judge Russell loved the church, and that during his illness he said that what he missed the most was attendance at divine service. AMATEUR JOURNALISTS. The national meeting of Amateur Journal ists will be held in St. Paul instead of Sioux City. At a meeting of the Twin City Ama teur Press association yesterday afternoon a communication from the Sioux. City amateurs was read requesting St. Paul to take the meeting. The convention will be held in July and it is the intention of the twin city association to issue a forty-eight page news paper explaining the meeting and Ms object, the first number to appear about April 1.

THE DOCTOR'S LOUD ROARS Says Politics Is at the Bottom of the Move, but Bowa to the Governor. _____— The prize fighting revival which was bo auspiciously inaugurated iv Minneapolis two weeks ago in the presence of Mayor A. A. Ames has been cruelly nipped in the bud by Governor Samuel R. Van Sant. "His excellency" says there shall be no prize fights in Minneapolis or in Minne sota, and so far as the Minneapolis end of the governor's dictum is concerned, Mayor Ames acquiesces, not heartily but reluctantly. Mayor Ames waxes sarcastic at the gov ernor's expense in a very pointed paper which he dictated Sunday night for the newspapers that his views might be known to all men. The trouble arose over Boyd Frazier's string of pugs who were to perform at the exposition to-night. The governor's at tention was directed to the matter by a telegram from the V.M.C. A.convention at Mankato and he at once began an in vestigation which included a personal call on Mayor Ames, after which he indited the following letter: The Governor* Letter. Hon. A. A- Ames, Mayor City of Minneap olis—Dear Sir: Permit me to call your at tention to the opinion of the attorney gen eral, a duplicate of which is hereto attached, to 'the effect that the fistic exhibition ar ranged for Monday evening, Feb. 18, 1901, at the exposition hall in the city of Minneapolis, is in violation of the penal laws of this state. I respectfully ask that you prevent this proposed infraction of the law. The law must not be violated as contemplated, and I hope that your action will be such as to prevent the necessity of Interference on my part as governor of the state. May I be favored with your answer by bearer as to whether you will prevent the proposed exhibition? Respectfully, —S. R. Van Sant, Governor. Enclosed with this communication was a learned opinion from Attorney General Douglas, in which the "general laws of Minnesota" were quoted in a way to strike terror to the hearts of every pug in Chris tendom. The attorney general informed the governor that the so-called glove con tests advertised to take place in Min neapolis were nothing more than prize fights, and that it was the duty of the executive officers of Minneapolis, as well as the county of Hennepin, to "use all forces at their command to prevent such contests." To the governor's communication with its important legal enclosure, Mayor Ames sent the following reply: Mayor Ames* Reply. Governor S. R. Van Sant, St. Paul—Gov ernor: Your communication just at hand. It has been carefully perused and carefully considered, and while I think the law is being drawn pretty strict in this case, still I stand ready to comply with the demand, and shall forbid the exhibition at the exposi tion building to-morrow night; and after that shall forbid everything of the character within the city limits of the city of Minne apols. I think this matter has been overdrawn. I think a distinction is being drawn as be tween genuine sport and athletics in favor of class and fanatical clans. 1 comply with your request, as per opin ion of attorney general, and shall in this line, from now on, allow nothing which will offend the peace and dignity of the state of Minnesota, from your standpoint. Very re spectfully, your obedient servant, —A. A. Ames, Mayor. Amen Condoles With Fightera. Having thus complied with the pro prieties, Minneapolis four-time-mayoral ty-winner and promoter of clean sport sent for the windy pugs and their backers and handlers. Headed by R. R. Odell and Boyd Frazier the gang called on the mayor and received his sympathy. There were twenty in the bunch, including fight ers Forbes, Rauch, Yanger, the "Tipton Slasher," Cody and O'Keefe. The mayor sent out for cigars, and did his best to comfort the disconsolates. "It is a shame," cried his honor. "There will be no contest. The governor was at church this morning and eased his conscience. He came to see me and we had a talk. I told him everything was all right, but he is afraid." The mayor was still smarting under the humiliation which he felt had been handed out to him by the governor last night, and after thinking hard he prepared a sar castic screed regarding all kinds of ath letic contests, and sent it to the news papers. The statement, which embodies the suspicion that the governor has been actuated by political reasons, is as fol lows: The communication from his excellency the governor, inclosing an opinion from the at torney general, and my reply thereto, con tains but a small amount of the question at issue. I do not believe the law in reference to prize fights has any bearing whatever upon the exhibition which was to have been given Monday night. I satisfied myself that it was to be a purely athletic exhibtion. Every man is connected with business inter ests, and as business men their standing as such is, perhaps, as good as the most that we have. This athletic exhibition is simply with them a side issue through which they are enabled to earn something in addition to their call ing. There was not, in my opinion, one single act to have taken place that was not purely upon its merits and purely athletic, and could not have been interpreted by the governor, if he had been present with mysei*, as even leaning toward a prize fight. Now, while I am a great lover of athletic sports, if the law is to be construed here after as at present, I shall feel called upon, as the chief executive of this city, to stop any and all sports whereby life or limb may be in jeopardy, and I shall be the judge of that fact. The Young Meu'g Christian Asso ciation of this city has been accustomed to give athletic sports which, with others, Jeop ardized life and limb, and I shall feel called upon to forbid that class of sport where I think injury may result. Mo More Maiming of Men. In a recent exhibtlon given at the univer sity, one of our young men received serious injury to his wrist and shoulder which will probaly make him a cripple for life. I shall endeavor to stop this maiming of our young men. The contests to have taken place Monday night were to have been with large gloves, and in no case to exceed a six-round contest. History shows that in no contest of this char acter have persons been seriously injured except by accident. In contests which I al lowed a few weeks ago there was not one single contestant who was not thoroughly competent to pursue his usual avocation by the time he had got washed and dressed for the street. If we are to have reformation. I think the Mrs. Nation style is, perhaps, the best —that is, tomahawk everybody and every thing. When I was elected mayor of this city it was with the distinct understanding that no class was to be favored. I may be compelled by interpretation of law to favor a class, but it will not be with my consent. I am decided ly and positively opposed 10 any rulings a* between classes. "That which is sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander" with me. Had Invited the Governor. If it is considered necessary by law that university students, against whom I have not a particle of prejudice, and the Young Men's Christian Association, shall Indulge in ath letic sports, every other class of people should be entitled to a sport In which there is no danger to life or limb. I want it to be distinctly understood by the people of this state that I pledged Gov ernor Van Sant that no prize fights would take place in this city during my administra tion, and that I invited him to be present with me at the contest which was to come off Monday night, and pledged him that at any time that he might consider it brutal or contrary to law that I would stop it that moment I sent him an Invitation to 6* with me, and also members of the legislature and the city council. No wrong waa In tended from start to finish in this matter, and I simply deem that I have not been treated with proper courteay to allow things to go on to this point before an opinion is given. Judge Jamison, Governor Van Sunt's pri vate secretary, had this case presented to him exactly as It was to me and he said that he could not see how and did not believe any interference on the part of the governor could be made against a contest of that character. This was several weeks ago. Dur ing th« preliminary arrangements for this exhibition several of our citizens, knowing this, have become good losers by encourag ing this exhibition. Blame* Political Enemies. It looks to me as if the old flgh<s against me were being rekindled by some of my old political and personal enemies. While I feel that In this case 1 am bound to bow sub missively to a superior power I still believe that the superior power has been misled in directing this, as against me. I will still continue to be mayor for all classes in this city for two years if I live, and "Lay on Macduff, and dam'd be him who first cries hold, enough!" At the request of Manager Frazier, May or Ames gave him the following letter of introduction to the governor, which ex plains itself: Hon. S. R. Van Sant, St. Paul—This will be handed you by Mr. Boyd Frazier, manager of the Exposition Athletic Club, who will appear before you with the terrible men. I simply hope that you will look at them, talk with them, and be convinced that they could not injure a man on earth. These men will present their own cause, and I bespeak for them that their claims re ceive a careful consideration at your hands. I do nut desire to ask any favor in this respect, but 1 do ask that you will be just to these men. Yours respectfully, —A. A. Ames. Fighters Are Disgusted. The fighters were a disgusted lot when they realized that all their hard training had been for nothing. "I guess we're up against it," said Ben ny Yanger, the "Tipton Slasher," f:%pious in many states for his fistic prowess. "It will get so soon that a fellow can't earn an honest living." A number of the party, however, are buoyed up by the hope that the governor will relent. They feel that the chief ex ecutive will see the error of his ways art! will permit the "carnival" to-morrow night. A large crowd of Chicago sports, includ ing Referee George Siler and Paddy Car roll, Keft Chicago last night for Minne apolis to see the "games." GOOD "CITS" THERE Alaska Gold Fields Filling: IP With Industrious Classes. Frank Grygla, government land agent in Alaska, has a good word for the class of people now inhabiting the gold fields. The lawless set that usually rushes to every new gold country has given place <to an industrious and peaceable class, he says. Mr. Grygla returned Saturday from a three years' stay in the territory and is on his way to Washington to appear as witness in a case involving the title of land near Juneau. The latest gold finds are along the Chitsletchine river and Its branches, Slate and Crystal creeks. This section is in the region of Fort Liscomb, and until last summer had never been explored. Minnesota men made the first discoveries and the placer mines are doing well. There will be a great demand for machinery in the gold regions of Alaska from now on. Placer mining has been profitable, but machinery can be worked to better advantage. The Treadwell mine is now dropping 880 stamps and many new mines will be equipped with stamps within the next year. The salmon industry is to be one big money maker of that country. HELP FROM ELEVATORS Xorth western Farmers Will Not Want for Seed Wheat. The problem of seed in the big wheat belt for the coming seasoa is to be solved by the elevator companies. Those farmers who have no seed or money with which to buy will be supplied from the elevators and will be asked to give a seed lien for se curity. To help things along, the legis lature of North Dakota is favorably con sidering a bill to give seed liens priority over all others. Superintendent McWilliams of the Du luth line of elevators, which is a part of the Peavey system, has recently returned from a trip through the Dakotas. He says that the prospects for a good wheat crop in the Red river valley are excellent. Considerable fall plowing was done on the Dakota side of the valley which means that the wheat acreage will not be re duced. On the Minnesota side north of Crookston the ground was too wet to plow and the proportionate acreage of wheat and flax will depend upon the weather of the early spring. Mr. McWilliams expects to see the flax acreage in the Dakotas west of the Red river valley equal that of last year. "BACKBONE" The Subject of Dr. Heuion'a Address at the Y. M. C. A. To-morrow evening Dr*. "P. S. Henson will be heard at Y. M. C. A. hall on the subject "Backbone." As a lecturer. Dr. Henson has few peers in the country. He is a charming speaker of great dramatic power and expression. His hearers are at a loss to say in which he excells more— pathos or humor, but all agree that he is irresistible. He is regarded by some as a second edition of Abraham Lincoln, more polished and graceful, but with essen tially the same sort of presence and in tellect. His fun is wholesome, his wit keen, his humor convulsive; he captivates his audience from the start. The subject chosen for Minneapolis is the strongest of the dozen or more which have brought Dr. Henson such widespread fame and should attract an overflowing audience. The seats are on sale at Metropolitan Music Store. OF INTEREST TO DENTISTS A Series of CllnlCH and Demomtr lion* Wednesday and Thursday. A series of clinics and demonstrations will be given before the G. V. Black Dental Club in the Ryan annex at St. Paul, Wednesday and Thursday. The use of electricity in dentistry will be shown. Dr. Eisen of Milwaukee will read a paper on the possibilities of inspecting and pre paring sensitive teeth for filling by elec tricity, and will give a demonstration of the method. Dr. Murray of Minneapolis will read a paper on extracting live pulp. Dr. G. V. Black of Chicago, an authority on dental work, will read a paper entitled "Ne cessity for Using More Intelligence in Filling Teeth." DR. SMITH'S IDEA. Dr. S. G. Smith in his sermon yesterday at St. Paul on "The Reign of Law" referred to Mrs. Nation's crusade against the saloons in Kansas. He said that the present state of affairs showed that the advocates of pro hibition in Kansas had been shutting their eyes to the truth. But this movement is even worse than the non-enforcement of the laws. He said that it was nothing less than anarchy, and that if the officers of Kansas would not enforce the laws they should be impeached and removed. If the people would not elect men who will enforce laws let the laws be repealed. DEATH OF MRS. LEMIRA HEARD. Mrs. Lemlra Heard, wife of Joseph M. Heard, died at her home, 15 W Fourteenth street, yesterday morning. Mrs. Heard came to Minneapolis in 1877 and has been actively connected with religious work in the Pity. She was a member of the Woman's Foreign Missionary society of the Methodist church and was interested in the Woman's Home. She leaves a husband and four sisters, one of whom lives in the city. The funeral will be held from the house at 11 to-morrow and will be conducted by Rev. C. B. Mitchell of the Hennepin Avenue church. The interment will be at Lakewood and will be private. Cure your headache at the Minstrel Show at the Lyceum Theater on Feb. 25 and 26. You will forget all your troubles | there. EIGHT VERSUS TEN HOURS A PROBLEM FOR THE WARDS i The' Ten-Hoar Rule Prevail* In Most of the Wardt-CbiuiKet - ■, , V Contemplated. While city employes engaged on public improvements have now an eight-hour day, but four of the thirteen wards have thus far seen tit to indorse the eight-hour prop osition in their ward affairs. The alder men agree more or less generally that an eight-hour day is a fine thing from the broad city standpoint, but with the ex ception of the aldermen from the sixth, seventh, eighth and eleventh wards, they are quite content to allow the old ten hour regime to remain in force in ward matters. / Other Warda May Follow. It is possible, however, that one or two other wards will come into the eight-hour column this spring. Alderman Ryan of the first ward Is thinking seriously of making the change to eight hours in his ward. There is a deal of work to do, however, and none too much money to do it with, and he is not yet satisfied that he is justified from the standpoint of economy in cutting off two hours from the working day. He is busily engaged in getting the opinions of his con stituents, an<l will be guided largely by their wishes. Other aldermen there are who would gladly make the change to eight hours If they thought the taxpayers would stand for it. In every case, however, there is the same complaint of insuffi ciency of funds for ward purposes. Even with a ten-hour day in vogue it is quite impossible to complete even the most needed improvements. Street Commissioner Frye of the eighth ward, however, claims that his men ac complished just as much last year in eight hours as they did the year before in ten. They work faster, are more faithful, keep in better humor and are ready to work overtime at a pinch without extra com pensation, he contends. The eight-hour day is an unmistakable success with him, and it doesn't cost the taxpayers a cent more. Cut the Pay, Too. Alderman Peterson of the eleventh ward, while conceding a reduction in the working day last year, evened matters up by de ducting 25 cents from the day's pay. There are local conditions that made this necessary, he says. He will continue the same schedule or hours and pay during the present year. Street Commissioner McMullen of the fourth ward will not concede the shorter day. He declares that it is simply out of the question. There is just so much work to do and a given amount of money to do it with. A reduction in the working hourg would mean a corresponding reduc tion in the results, he holds. His ex jerience has been that men engaged in ward work have to be driven just as hard under any conditions as to length of day. Two hours less per day of work therefore means 20 per cent less work accomplished. Conncll May Advise. It is expected that Alderman Powers and some of the other labor champions in the council will Insist upon a council resolution soon recommending that all ward work be done under the eight hour system this year. The council has only advisory powers in the matter, however. It rests with the aldermen of the respect ive wards what course shall be followed. AMEND HARBOR BILL j Grain Men and Millers Meet for That j " Purpose. The. grain men and millers in session at the Chamber of , Commerce on Saturday drew up a proposed amendment to the Harter , bill to . the effect that no. steam ships shall be allowed to Insert special clauses in bills of lading whereby charges are imposed on goods which by act of par- | liament are guaranteed free delivery at the port of London. 9 It was recommended also that an amendment be made declaring that rates of freight must include all charges incidental to the delivering on the j quay. It will be urged that the Minnesota representatives push the amendment to the Harter bill in congress. GLUBA CARED FOR The Out-door Shoemaker Provided With a Home. A citizen who does not care to have his name mentioned in connection with the matter, looked up Joe Gluba, the North town evicted shoemaker, yesterday, and found that his trouble had been gradually brought on by inability to work steadily on account of an injury received from a fall about a year ago. Mr. Tuttle of the American Mining Investment company, furnished the cash for a month's rent, and Gluba will be gotten under a roof through the agency of E. G. Walton. HAMMEREDJJNCE MORE Three County Commissioners the Objects of Other Resolutions. There is no rest for County Commis sioners Nash, Smith and Barney. One after another the different labor unions are hammering the commissioners for their action in awarding the county print ing to a paper which ignores the union label. Yesterday the flour packers and nailers passed resolutions roundly con demning the commissioners. At the same time a resolution of thanks was adopted in behalf of Commissioners Sweet and Ry berg for opposing the award. U. STUDENT KILLED Enoch Nelson Knocked From Hl* Wheel by a O. X. Train. Enoch Nelson, a student at the universi ty, was killed by a Great Northern train Saturday night while riding near the rail way tracks in Bast Minneapolis. The boy's father arrived in Minneapolis yes terday and last night took the remains to Winona. An autopsy held yesterday showed that death had been caused by a compound fracture at the base of the brain. FUNERAL OF ALTON DALRYMPLE. The funeral of Alton Dalrymple was held in St. Paul yesterday afternoon. The Epis copal service was read by Rev. Mr. Haslam, rector of St. Paul's church. There was no music and owing to illness in the family the services were private. FORMERLY A NORTHWESTERNER. Barton Atkins of Buffalo, X. V., died at his home yesterday. Mr. Atkins was ident j ifled with the development of trade on the great lakes and spent several years in the twin cities in the railroad and steamship business. A ST. PAUL PIONEER GONE. The funeral of W. H. Grube of St. Paul, a territorial pioneer who died last week, will be held at the family residence, 824 Margaret street, at 2:30 o'clock to-morrow afternoon. A widow and eight grown children survive. BROW \ BROTHERS NEW STORK Tlie Well Known Tailors Open n. Handiome Place on Sixth Street. Brown Brothers, the well-known mer chant tailors who have been in business in Minneapolis for the past sixteen years, opened their handsome new three-story store this morning at 21 Sixth street S. This store will be run in connection with their present place at 240 Hennepin ave nue. Temple Court, where they have been doing buyness for the past eight years. The new Sixth street building is splendidly adapted for its purpose. It is of brick, well lighted and located, and is an ornament to Sixth street. The first story is occupied by the men's tailoring rooms, the second floor by ladies' tailor ing rooms, which will be opened later, and the third floor is the workshop, ac commodating forty men. Altogether it is a most convenient and well-appointed building. The store at 240 Hennepin is being redecorated and refurnished. Brown Brothers will now have two first-class stores and will be better able to take corn of their constantly increasing trade.

KOSINCr TO BE BOTH Will Take Charge of the St. Paul Globe Before March 15. It is settled that L. A. Rosing, chair man of the democratic state central com mittee, will take charge of the St. Paul Globe some time prior to March 15. He will run it as a simon-pure democratic organ, come what may. It is generally understood that James J. Hill has found the paper an expensive luxury. Since the Globe executed its re markable acrobatic feat last year of sup porting McKinley for governor, the paper has lost caste with its democratic con stituency. The railway king has decided to part company with the Globe. He has received bids from the Pioneer Press and the Dispatch. The latter paper would have used the Globe as its morning edi tion, while the Pioneer Press only wanted to stifle the voice of its rival, and absorb its circulation. Mr. Rosing got the inside track and secured an option, good until March 15. He then went energetically to work forming a stock company, and either personally or by letter interviewed all the leading democrats of the state. He is now quite certain that the deal will be carried through and that the Globe will begin its new career with ample financial backing. The purchase price which will be paid is not stated, but this touch is learned from authoritative sources: Honing; Manager. L. A. Rosing will have active control of the paper as editor and manager. Other editorial writers will be employed, and it is reported that ex-Governcr Lind will be a frequent contributor. Certain it is that the ez-governor is deeply interested in the success of the paper, and will con tribute financially. Mr. Rosing will have general supervision of the paper's edito rial policy. Addison R. Fenwick will be retained as managing editor. The democratic state committee will have to select another chairman, as Mr. Rosing is anxious to be relieved of the work as soon as the committee is ready to fill his place. He has piloted the party through three state campaigns, and stated after the last election that he would under no conditions remain at the head of the committee for another two years.

TWENTY MILES OF WALKS ' That Much More Artificial Stone Ordered Laid. About twenty miles more of artificial sidewalk has been ordered laid during the coming season than was laid last year, and it has been assessed against the prop erty owners at the rate of 81 cents per square yard. This is 6 cents In advance of last year's figures. The advance is said to be justified by the increased cost of materials and labor. Nevertheless, some complaints have already been received at the city engineer's office. Artificial stone sidewalk has been laid in recent years as low as 72 cents per yard. Years ago, when it firet came Into vogue in Minneapolis, it was laid at a cost of $1.50 per yard. The natural stone it displaced cost as high as $3 per yard.
