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
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.
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.

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.

One of the unique affairs/>f the evening
will be the third annual banquet given
by the men of the Fifth Congregational

Chicago Grads. After Annual Track
Meet as a Regular Thing.
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

Dr. Cyrus Northrop, president of the

which will govern the world's fair to be
held in St. Louis to commemorate the
Louisiana purchase. Representative Taw

national commission of nine members who
are to receive each a salary of $5,000 per
annum. The commission will be in ex

Tawney should name one of the commis

thought, amountß practically to an ap

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. |
Two Big Minneapolis Insurance
Companies Unite To-day.
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.
Board of Trade Turns It Over to
Commercial Club
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
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
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
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.

Kuiisn* City Confident.
Kansas City claims to have the next
convention cinched. Milwaukee's claims
are just as strong. President Haskell
will not announce the members of the
new executive committee for some weeks.
It is reported on good authority that one
will be a Minnosotan, one from lowa and ;
the third from ihe southern section of!
the "dairy belt," either Illinois, Kansas!
or Nebraska. it is claimed that J. E.
Nissley of Kajisas, who gracefully with- j
drew his candidacy for president in favor j
of Mr. Haskell, may be named a member
of the new committee which will meet in
July to select the place for the next con
vention. The Milwaukee delegation was

to forget the interest of the cows, which
were most important. 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

"Do Paper Liners Produce Mold?" was
the subject of a paper read by \V. S.
Moore of Chicago.
H. P. Rui-ker, special commissioner at
the Pan-American exposition, told the
convention of plans that are being formed
to interest the dairymen of the country
and for the care of stock at the exposi
tion. A special feature will be a model I

of Dubuque sang a duet. Several recita

Tompkins and J. E. Skemp.
Telegrams from Senators Mason and
Lodge promising to support the Grout bill
were read and brought cheers from the
Wisconsin's Ei-Goveruor TulUh of
the Grout Bill.
Ex-Governor Hoard of Wisconsin is one
of the prominent men in attendance at the
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. The
manufacture of oleomargarine is a menace
to the dairy industry. No dairy farmer can
expect to compete with it when itt manu
facturers are not backward in telling the
public that it can be produced at $5.54
per 100 pounds. Friends of the dairy farm
er in congress should be alert to secure
the passage of a bill to prevent the de
struction of an industry that means much
just received. It's well M jffek .■

Present Legislative Session May
Be Cut to 70 Days.
The Plan It* to Have an Extra Sea
ttloit on the Tax (oimuis-
Mioner'g Report.
An effort will be made next week to
shorten the term of the present legisla
tive session, fixing the time for adjourn
ment at the end of seventy Legislative
days. This will leave twenty days for an
extra session next year.
The tax commission bill has now passed
both houses and awaits the signature of
the governor. The governor has been ad
vocating the lax commission ami a revision
and codification of the tax laws, and it Is
expected that he will sign the bill at osce
and appoint the three members of Uw
commission within a few days.
The effort will then be made to cut
twenty days off the session in order to
hold a special session to act on the re
port of the commission.
