He Point* Oat ■ How It Would De velop One of the State's Val uable Resources." • Fresh fish for Minneapolis, fish less than twenty-four hours' old from the cool, clear waters of Red lake; cranber ries at little more than half the price now paid for them, and a new industry in fresh-water clam shells, all are among the things promised Minneapolis and the state as the prospective results of a bill Introduced a few days ago in the Minne sota upper house by Senator J. H. Smith. The bill, if it becomes a law, will au thorize fishing with "pound" nets in lakes of over 350 square milej area, which means such fishing will be permitted in Red lake, which is the only lake of the above size in this state. E. T. LeClair, formerly of the Baltimore Packing com pany, and an expert, is authority for the statement that the above results will flow from the passage of the bill. According to him the passage of the bill will mean a blow at" the fish trust, giving to the people or the twin cities not only fresher fish than they get now, but cheaper fish. A Simple Problem. As Mr. Le Clair views it, the fish prob lem hinged on this bill is a very simple one. It is just a question of the differ ence between freight rates and express rates. For example, the express rates on fish from Rat Portage to the twin cities is $4.25 per 100 pounds, while the freight rate for carload lots is S3 cents per 100 pounds, a difference of nearly 31-2 cents per pound, which is a very liberal profit, assured to the trust because only tile trust can ship in carload lots using re frigerator service. Fish can be shipped in from Red lake, once railroad connec tions are made, considerably within twenty-four hours; that Is. fish forwarded one day will arrive early the following morning, and can be shipped at such rates as to reduce the price materially. SportMiuen VeeUu't I om plul v. Mr. Le Clair, who has had Red lake prospected thoroughly, says the lake is full of fish and that there is no danger of depleting it of its stock of good fish. The lake itself, he adds, is too large for line fishing, hence there is no danger of spoil ing good sport for any one. The only good line fishing in the vicinity is to be had in the streams tributary. In fact, he .-ays that the lake needs to be fished out in order to improve the quality of its denizens; further, the establishment of the industry there means the employment of a large number of men and the settling up of the surrounding country as it will early result in the construction of rail road to the lake's shore. « I:iiii Shell Plenty. About this Mr. Le Clair feels there can be uo doubt in view of the other indus tries that will spring up about the lake. One of these will be the gathering and ■shipping of clam shells from the tributary rivers. These exist in enormous quanti ties and are of a high grade. It is said they would probably bring $20 per ton, whereas the Mississippi river clams bring $7 and $8 per ton. The shells are used in the manufacture of buttons. This indus try alone would employ over 400 men ac cording to estimates. Cranberry Marshes \ear. Along the banks of the Tamarack river Mr. Le Clair adds, there are 10,000 acres of cranberry marshes producing high grade berries. These marshes extend down to the very shores of the lake The price at which these' berries could be placed in the «yin city markets is esti mated at $3 per barrel. The Cape Cod berries cost about $8 per barrel. With the Red lake marshes competing for the trade there would be a marked fall in the price. In support of the opening of the lake to pound-net fishing it is further added that such a course would be in line with the policy pursued by the Canadian gov ernment toward its larger lakes The result has warranted the government in continuing the course with no detriment to the great sport of angling and with an actual improvement in the quality of fi=h supplied the public. Red lake, says Mr Le Clair, is overstocked to such an ex tent that many fish die off simply from the overcrowding and those that do sur vive are the older and hardier varieties, which are not so good for food as would be those which would be allowed to ma ture if the stronger varieties were fished out. The argument of those supporting the bill, therefore, is not only that the twin cities would be supplied with fresher cheaper and better fish, but that along with the growth of the fish industry would be developed other industries by which both the twin cities and the coun try surrounding the lake would greatly benefit and the wealth of the state added to materially. SMALLPOX IS DECREASING Board of H.-nlth Report Shows Few er Cases in the State. The last report of the state board of health shows a decrease in the number of smallpox cases over the preceeding month. There are 200 cases less than a month ago. Many of the new cases re ported in the past two weeks are isolated ones and in only a few communities of the state are there indications of an epi demic. During the past two weeks there have been 328 new cases in seventy-two com munities of the state. The following re port unfavorable conditions: Minneapolis and Elmore each 16 cases; Bemidji 14- Montgomery and Lake City, each 13; Pine Lake, 12; Lake Crystal, Elgin and De lano, each 11; Woodland, 10 cases. Five new cases were reported from St. Paul. DAGGETT ISJPRESIDENT He Will Run Minnetonka Beach Village. The Minnetonka Beach village election, held yesterday, resulted as follows' George H. Daggett, president; Willis Wil liams, P. A. Bovey, F. W. Plant, trustees- P. R. Petit, recorder; Egbert Cowles, treasurer; J. A. Wolverton. assessor; Charles Jackson, justice of the peace- John B. Berglund, constable. Most of these officers live in Minneapo lis during the winter. The Minneapolis voters went out yeeterday on a special Great Northern train. Lunch was served at the Lafayette club. The city people took a look over their lake property, and it was found that owing to the police pre cautions not a house had been broken into. MANY KhmuHm of the State TeachfrV Ei aminatlortH. Examinations for state teachers' certifi cates were taken by 3,153 persons last month. State Superintendent Olsen has Just completed the examination of the pa pers and announces that 1.905 of the num ber "passed." Of these 154 will receive first grade and 1,751 second grade certifi cates. Besides the above, 514 teachers have made up conditions in various sub jects. BETHESDA PAYS $20,000.

This amount has been subscribed. The old board of directors was elected.

MANY MERCHANTS IN TOWN SOME ARE FROM NEW TERRITORY Montana Dealer* Are Coming; In Larger Numbers Than Ever ■ Before. Wholesalers are well pleased with the results, so far, of the second spring ex cursion. Many buyers nre arriving. The pleasant feature is the appearance for the first time of many dealers from lowa, a territory which Minneapolis jobbers covet and which they Intend to canvass more closely this year. Montana mer chants are coming to this market in larger numbers than ever before. Mon tana has for years be»«n the pet terri tory pf Chicago in the west, but better freight service is doing much for Min neapolis in that state. The fact that Montana has been prosperous and more so than at any time in its history without recourse to silver as its principal means of revenue, is overcoming a prejudice which thrived to a small extent as one of the trying things of the campaign of 1896, and which was di -ected in a small way against the jobbers of the twin ejties during the heat of the struggle. Minne apolis wholesalers have been doing much to cultivate the good will of the Montana trade by careful attention to their wants and an honest endeavor to beat Chicago in quick service and meet all other com petition. Some buyers are appearing from the new territory far to the west, which has been canvassed by Minneapolis men for the past few years only. This includes Idaho, Oregon and Washington. Wisconsin dealers are also arriving in good numbers. Northern and western Wisconsin is becoming very friendly to this market. Many new stocks are going Into western North and South Dakota this spring, and all of the old merchants in those states are preparing for an in crease in trade. GETTING DOWN TO WORK THE PUBLIC ABVAIM COMMITTEE The Brunch of the Commercial Club That Has Minneapolis' Fu ture in Charge. The new public affairs committee of the Commercial Club and the advisory com mittee of six members are getting down to systematic work. While this body is a very new one, its plans are materializ ing well. The convention committee, of which Fred Salisbury is chairman, began work at once by issuing an invitation to the State Editorial association to hold its next meeting in Minneapolis, which was accepted. It has general plans formed which promise well, and if the business men of the city give the right kind of support, .Minneapolis will be able to se cure its share of the big conventions as well as numerous smaller ones. One of the prominent members of the club says: It takes money to get conventions as well as to accomplish anything. The financial pulse must be tested before any definite plans can be formed. We can secure many small conventions without much expense, but to get the big ones we must expect to invest some money. There is no reason why Minneapolis should not become as good a convention town as any city in the country, with a conven tion bureau well financed and equipped for the work. The new public affairs committee has hardly started in its work, but its or ganization is such that with proper help from the business interests of the city Minne apolis can be made the western mecca of delegates to all kinds of conventions. A THRILLING LECTURE Dr. \ewell Dwight Hillln on '•Oliver Cromwell.'' Ur. Newell Dwight Hillis, the eloquent pastor of Plymouth church, Brooklyn, de lighted several hundred people at the Ly ceum theater last night with his thrill ing and inspiring lecture on Oliver Crom well, In many respects it was the most interesting lecture in the Institute of Arts and Letters' course so far. Dr. Hillis is frankly a champion and special pleader for Cromwell. The great Puritan's faults were hardly touched upon, and then only in extenuation, while a magnificent eulogy was poured out upon his vast lifework. The lecturer reviewed Cromwell's life and the political and so cial conditions of the England he had to deal with by means of a series of fas cinating word pictures. The resulting impression of the tyranny which pre vailed in England under Charles I. and the abject conditions of the masses of the people—nothing more than serfs was a revelation to many who have looked upon England as the cradle of liberty. Dr. Hillis speaks in a very quiet man ner, uses no violent gestures, and is at times so stiff in his delivery that it is hard to understand the power of the elo quence that comes from such an appar ently unmoved source. LELAND T. POWERS He Will Give an Entertainment at Y. M. C. A. Hall Saturday. • Next Saturday evening Leland T. Powers, the impersonator, will appear at the Y. M. C. A. hall, giving readings from Dickens' "David Copperfleld." Although Mr. Powers has been before the public many years he stands alone in his line and his wonderful success is attested by the immense audiences which greet him wherever he goes. As an entertainer Mr. Powers is a finished artist. There is that indefinable magnetism that draws and holds the attention of his audiences from the mo ment he first appears until his last exit. In impersonating the varied characters of the masterpieces of dramatic construction he makes them all live and breathe and they are so distinct to his hearers and as clear cut as though they had been impersonated by separate actors. The ticket sale for Mr. Powers' per formance will open to-morrow morning at the Metropolitan Music Store. SOME Y. M. C. A. AWARDS Prly.es in the Membership Contest Are Given Out. The awards in the Y. M. C. A. member ship contest were made last night in the presence of one of the largest audiences ever gathered in the building.

( SPORTS BAN ON OUTSIDERS Town of Belgrade Declares War on .Non-RenlUent Hunters. Special to The Journal. ' Mankato, Minn., March 13.—The town of Belgrade, 7 which adjoins the city of Man kato in Nicollet county, yesterday voted to allow no hunters from this city or other ■ non-resident ■ hunters to do any hunting within the limits of that township during the coming year. The farmers say that the action was not taken in order to pro tect the" chickens which breed numerously there, but to protect themselves. They complain that t careless j hunters leave the gates open, allow their dogs to wallow in the watering troughs, and in other ways make themselves a nuisance. | A fine of $25 is to be imposed upon every outside hunter who has the temerity to venture upon the sacred ground. The meeting also voted to raise $1,200 for bridges and $400 for town purposes. ♦*L'" OP >lINN. WITHDREW KuM-iuwood Team Winx In Chicago llu»kfi Bull.

According to a letter received by Attor ney-General Douglas from County Attor ney Kane of St. Paul, there was really never any legal warrant for sending Mol lie Morris and her two companions to the St. Paul workhouse. An examination of the municipal court records, he says, show that the prisoners by general agreement pleaded guilty to petit larceny, but that no complaint was ever made in writing or filed in court, and that there Is, therefore, no charge standing against the prisoners. The two remaining women will leave the workhouse March 29 and will then be taken to Chicago to answer to charges of grand larceny. SERVANT GIRLS ORGANIZE.
