JUDGE'S HEART TOUCHED SAD ("ASKS OF TWO VOl VCi MEN A Mother's Heartbroken Letter* and Their Own Statement* Ht-nult > ' in v Lighter Sentence. Pity for a broken-hearted mother touched Judge Brooks" heart yesterday when Huber Stringfleld and George E. Keller stood before the bar of justice and asked for mercy. They are the young men recently brought back from California to stand trial for grand larceny, after having worked an extensive swindling game from here to the coast. The prosecuting at torney and the counsel for the defense spoke kind words in behalf of the defend ants. Attention was called to their previ ous good reputations. Then Judge Brooks questioned them and reluctantly gave them three years. Keller stood impassive, but Stringfield was unnerved. The tears started from his eyes, he bit- his lips and hung his head. Then he nerved himself and faced . the court. He asked for mercy on his aged mother's account and showed some touching letters from her. "This has been a great lesson to me," he said, "and it is my purpose to make an honorable amendment in the future." The letters were passed up to the court who silently perused a mother's affecting messages to a son gone wrong. Keller said that his own health was in a serious state and that a hemorrhage of the lungs last night had greatly alarmed him. His mother was prostrated as a result of his arrest. Then Judge Brooks relented. He said: "1 should have allowed you to make a statement before. In view of what you have told me 1 will sentence each of you to two and a half years in the state's prison." Stringfield threw his arms around his wife and then, with Keller, was led hand cuffed from the room. MAYOR AMES IS GUNNING THE POLICE RELIEF ASSOCIATIOX The Mayor ll.ihN That Those in Con trol Are (>uiiiK to Wreck the AMHOfitttion. Mayor Ames is thoroughly aroused over the affairs of the Police Relief Associa tion and is preparing for immediate ac , tion to block the plans of the element now in control. He declares that there is a well organized effort to despoil the association funds and wind up its career. He believes that the members of the as sociation are planning to withdraw in large numbers and take with them $200 each, and all the fees paid in, as allowed under the rule adopted at a recent meet ing. There is about $40,000 in the fund now. If 100 of the present 138 members withdraw, less than one-half the fund will be left. Its purpose, he insists, was to furnish relief for the families of deceased police men and not to benefit live, healthy men capable of supporing their families in com fort, and if there is a«y law to prevent the consummation he fears, he will invoke it. Yesterday he addressed a letter to City Attorney Healy requesting an opinion a3 to the legal aspects of the case. The dog license fund which the council can cut off —so the city attorney says—amounts to about $6,000 a year, of which $3,000 has been turned over to the relief fund since the passage of the legislative act au thorizing it. in 1891. Under the recent amendments to the by-laws of the association a member of five years' standing can withdraw at any time and receive all fees paid in and $200 in addition. Xow it is the mayor's con tention that this is a flagrantly unbusi nesslike arrangement, certain to wreck the association. It appears, however, that the most he can do Is to prevent, by threat of dis charge, the withdrawal of those members of the association now on the police force. It is said that his first move will be to iuform those members that their with drawals from the association willbe fol lowed by their dismissal from the force. It is probable also that he will move through a willing member to prevent the council from turning any more of the dog license money into the treasury of the until matters have been straightened out to his satisfaction. About twenty members have already ap plied for withdrawal and a. dozen or fifteen applications have been granted. President ' Getchell of the association is said to be among them.

SURVEYORS AND ENGINEERS Fifth Annual State Convention Meet inii in St. Paul. • The fifth annual convention of the Min nesota Surveyors and Engineers' Society was opened Wednesday at the Commercial Club in St. Paul with an address by George W. Cooley of Minneapolis presi dent. Professor W. R. Hoag of the state university read a paper on "The Repair and Maintenance of Draining Ditcbes." A paper was read by Stephen F.

AFTER THE LEASE WAS SIGNED. Chicago Tribune. Mrs. Reelue Tate—You'd better not have" anything ni#re to do with those people next door than you can possibly help. They are rather disagreeable in their ways. Mrs. Wrenter—Why, when your husband was trying to get us to take this property he told us the people next door were the nicest in the whole neighborhood. Mrs. Reelus Tate—O, that's only his—er —stupid business way of talking, you know. HONORED THE DAY Minneapolis Fittingly Observes Washington's Birthday. PUBLIC OFFICES ARE CLOSED Cluba, « unrobe* ami Other OrganlM tloiiK Give Entertainment* —Some Attractive ProKrnuiN. Minneapolis has duly celebrated Wash ington's birthday to-day In various ways. There has been a general closing of such public institutions' as the schools, library, city and county offices, federal offices and postofflce. The banks, of course, were not open, but otherwise there was little dim inution of business activity. The Methodist ministers of Minneapolis were dined by their St. Paul brethren. There h&ve'been numerous patriotic and colonial . entertainments in society and club circles throughout the week, and dates for such gatherings are set for as late as Monday evening. To-night the Y. M. C. A. will observe the day with a re ception and entertainment. The Daugh ters of the American Revolution will con duct patriotic exercises at Drummonds hall: the Daughters of the Revolution will give _a musicale at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Horace Hill; the Young Ladies' Mis sionary Society of the First Baptist church will give a colonial tea at the church. The Epworth League of the Foss M. E. church will give a midwinter picnic this evening. One of the unique affairs/>f the evening will be the third annual banquet given by the men of the Fifth Congregational church. An appetizing menu has been prepared, which will be the more attrac tive as the entire menu is to be prepared by the men. After dinner the toasts will be responded to by Rev. C. F. Swift. Will De Long, John Day Smith. Rev. L. H. Hal lack and Rev. Alexander McGregor. Rev. J. E. Smith will be toastmaster. WANT WHOLE THING Chicago Grads. After Annual Track Meet as a Regular Thing. CONFERENCE OF THE "BIG NINE" It Will Have That QueHtion to Set tle—Other Matter* to Come I'll. Representatives of the "big nine" schools in western athletics are gathering in Chi cago to-day in answer to a call by the executive committee. The executive com- I mittee appointed a subcommittee to take 'charge of the intercollegiate meet to be held in Chicago. The call was the result of a kick by the nonconference colleges for representation on a managing commit tee appointed by this subcommittee and for a new rule with regard to the eligibil ity of contestants. At present the rule is that the institu tion to which a challenged contestant be longs shall decide as to his eligibility. The nonconference institutions say that ques tions of eligibility should be determined by a committee consisting of conference and nonconference members or else that both conference and nonconference con testants should be passed upon by the con ference committee and not by the com mittee of the school to which the chal lenged contestant belongs. Messrs. Pettingill, of Michigan; Barton of Illinois and Jones of Minnesota make the subcommittee appointed to take charge of the meet . These three found it diffi cult to handle arrangements from a dis tance and appointed a committee of grad uates residing in Chicago and representing the schools in the conference to manage the meet and put it through. This manag ing committee, it seems, has come to feel its own importance to too great a de gree and is now proposing the organization of an- association to include the conference colleges. This will also be one of the important matters to come up at the Chi cago conference just assembling. It is understood that the executive com mittee does not favor the idea of an asso ciation such as that proposed. It looks too much as though Chicago "U" and Northwestern, also a Chicago institution, were trying to cinch the annual intercol legiate meets for Chicago to the exclusion of other points and there is strong opposi tion to such an outcome. Further it is felt that the present con ference arrangement while defective in some respects, is very satisfactory and that when the defects are remedied so as properly to care for the nonconference schools there will be little fault to be found with the arrangement. The outcome of the present conference, however, will be watched with keen inter est. The executive committee is meeting to- 1 day and the conference will be held to morrow. HONOR FOR 'PREXY' May Be Member of World's Fair Commission. APPOINTMENTS NOT MADE YET onuresMmui Tuwney Is Much In terestetl in Getting President -Northrop (intlic I omiuission. Dr. Cyrus Northrop, president of the etate university, is said to be slated lor membership in the national commission which will govern the world's fair to be held in St. Louis to commemorate the Louisiana purchase. Representative Taw ney has filed the recommendation with the president. Senator Nelson was - present and added his assurances that~thlTappoint ment Would be indorsed by the Minne sota delegation. Tawney's bill creates a national commission of nine members who are to receive each a salary of $5,000 per annum. The commission will be in ex istence four years. It was agreed that Mr. Tawney should name one of the commis sioners, so that the recommendation, it is thought, amountß practically to an ap pointment. The Journal's Washington cor respondent telegraphs as follows regard ing the above report: Riibli for the Nine Places. Representative Tawney is to-dsy getting the siguature3 of the Minnesota senators and representatives to a petition to the president to appoint President Cyrus Northrop of the University of Minnesota as a member of the government commission authorized in the Louisiana purchase exposition bill. There are to be nine of these commissioners, who will be appointed within thirty days after the president signs the act. They will serve until December, 1903, and wiJi be paid 56,000 a year for their services. Berths are so de sirable that many members of the house who failed of re-election are sco-ring the in dorsement of their fellow members. There are so any of these aplications that the president could fill all the places from the present house, but he has intimated that he will give some places to men of scientific and technical knowledge. All the members of the Minnesota delegation will probably indorse President Northrop and. will see the president personally to urge his appointment. President Northrop was loth to say any thing about the report to-day. He ad mitted, however, that "a congressman" had written to ask if he would accept such an appointment. He had replied that he would be willing If its duties would not interfere -with those as president of the university. But as yet the president has received no information which leads him to think that he will be appointed. | f THE MINNEAPOLIS JOURNAL. THEY ARE MERGED Two Big Minneapolis Insurance Companies Unite To-day. HAVE 28,000 POLICY HOLDERS The .National Mutual Life and NoVtli- Metteru Life Au*ocintluiiM Form One Com jinn >'. The merging of the National Mutual Life ; Association and the Northwestern Life* Association, both;of Minneapolis, into one organization was consummated yester day. The consolidated company will be known as the Northwestern' National Life Insurance Company and will have head quarters in the Andrus building.. The company will occupy the entire Nlcollet avenue side of the sixth floor with 'two rooms on the Fifth street side. The new offices will be opened about March 15. i The officers are: \V. F. Beehtel, presi dent; Dr. J. F. Force, first vice president; Wallace Campbell, second vice president and superintendent of agents; H.B. Mil ler, third vice president; G. F. Getty, sec retary and treasurer; Dr. O. W. Hlggins; medical director. Z. H. Austin,* late deputy state commissioner of insurance, will be the actuary. The new company has a total member ship of 22,993. with insurance in force amounting to $32,925,635. . - \iilional Policy HoldCM Meet. . -At , 9 o'clock , yesterday the ( policy holders of the National association'met in the offices of the company in the New York Life building to vote on the contract which had been offered by the Northwestern Life association. .... : There was a good representation. There were present in person'and by proxies 1,800 of the holders of policies, for this especial purpose of voting on the pro posed consolidation. There was not a dis senting vote. The meeting was continued at:2 p. m., for the purpose of ratifying the action of the officers in signing the contract which they were authorized to sign by the action of the morning. ■ The total value of the revenue stamps used on the proxies was $400. , The charter of the Northwestern asso ciation will be surrendered according to law and dissolved in five days. Each of the members had a thirty-day notice. . This consolidation will in no way in terfere : with the insurance. in force. The policies will continue as before, with no physical examination. Said one of the new officers: It makes us the largest stipulated premium insurance company in the world. A stipu lated premium company differs from the old line in this: : We get rates based on standing , tables but our contract contains a safety or assessment clause to be used in the case of emergency. If the new stipulated premium law is enacted by the state legislature the company will do business under that law. Several states already have this law after which the Minnesota law is patterned. The rest of the consolidation is an increased rev ] enue producing power of the two institutions, I and a minimizing of the expense account. There have been two executive heads, two agency forces, two state department expenses, two printing ac counts.two general expense and rent accounts. The effect will be. to cut the expenses almost in two. The net saving is a very desirable result, and we are the largest life association in the . west, situated where there are desirable investments drawing a j large rate of interest. The recent large in- j crease of business in the two institutions is I such that in the consolidation in all probabil ity the present office forces will be needed. YIELDS ITS WORK Board of Trade Turns It Over to Commercial Club AND SUSPENDS FOR ONE YEAR The Club Will Take Active Charge of the Farthering; of the City's Interests. The Board of Trade has suspended operations for one year, if not permanent ly. This course is the result of a con ference between committees representing that body and the Commercial Club, the decision being embodied in a report signed by the Board of Trade committee, as follows: M. B. Koon, E. J. Phelps, J. S. MeLain, S. A. Harris, John C. Reno, I- C. Seeley and Charles S. Cairn 3. This com mittee will continue in charge of the property of the board, and will meet again on the second Wednesday in Jan uary, 1902. The report it submitted is as follows: The committee appointed to confer with the Commercial Club and to consider the expedi ency and advisability of the temporary sus pension of business by the Board of Trade, and joining with or encouraging the Commer cial Club in its proposed work for the benefit of the city of Minneapolis, begs leave to re port that in our opinion such change is desir able and should be consummated' at once. The vital necessity of concentrating as nearly as possible in one organization all the intelligent and public-spirited men who feel the necessity of, and who are willing to work together for, and contribute to the progress, development and growth of our city, is clear ly apparent to every one who has given the subject serious consideration; and, we be lieve that under the existing circumstances the Commercial Club is the best, most prac tical and only organized instrument now in this city for the accomplishment of that pur pose. It has an active, enthusiastic membership of 700. It is officered and managed by a num ber of our most energetic, enterprising, pub lic-spirited, reliable and successful young business men, who are willing to give the time and thought necessary, and their earnest best efforts to the proposed work. It is per mauently and centrally located, in spacious and comfortable rooms, elegantly furnished and equipped, at a cost of over $10,000. It la entirely out of debt and has a balance of over $2,000 in the treasury. The mistakes of the past have been cor rected, and, we believe, will not be repeated. All that is now required is that the public should acquaint itself with the present organ ization and its business methods, give it its confidence, its moral and financial support, and the wish of those who really desire to see again in this city a strong, healthy, public spirited body, working harmoniously and energetically for the well-being and advance ment of our city, in every sphere of activity; and usefulness, will be gratified, and much real good, we are satisfied, will be accom plished. We, therefore, recommend that the Board of Trade suspend operations for at least one year, and that all possible encouragement and support be given to the Commercial Club in its efforts <o care for and promote the ma terial interests and welfare of our city.

The man who is an expert at caring for the cows is of more importance to the industry than the man who is an expert at operating a cream ery.

Ex-Governor Hoard of Wisconsin is one of the prominent men in attendance at the KX-GOV. HOARD OF WISCONSIN. buttermakers' convention. He is an en thusiastic friend of the dairymen and is saying all the pleasant things he can for Milwaukee as the next convention city. "Whenever I step outside the boundary of my own state," said the governor. "1 am asked many questions about the pros pects of the* primary election bill now pending in the legislature. I believe the bill will become a law, and. what is more, I believe that as a law it will become very popular. The Grout bill will be passed too. I think that the influence of this convention will have much weight in de termining the fortunes of the bill. It is certainly a just piece of legislation.
