A Bad Railroad Wreck in St. Paul
This Morning.
A Second Knglne and Many Freight
Cam Are IMletl I |>-
on It.
Five men were injured in a bad railroad
wreck under the Mississippi street
bridge in St. Paul at 9:30 this morning.
As a Wisconsin Central freight train
drawn by two engines was entering the
city the first engine jumped the track.
The second engine and a number of cars,
rushing on, were thrown from the track
and piled up in a heap.
The injured are:
Henry Doll, fireman, 197 Lyndale ave
nue \", Minneapolis, slight burisee.
Thomas La Plant, engineer, 625 Sixth
street S, Minneapolis, slightly injured in
the left leg.
Emil Probst, 233 Cayuga street, St.
Paul, slightly scalded.
D. A. Woodbury, switchman, St. Paul,
badly crushed under wreckage.
Tom Galvin, engineer, Case and Park
streets, St. Paul, scalded and internally
The train was made up at Abbottsford,
Wis., and was pulling up the heavy grade
toward the Mississippi street bridge. An
other engine, a common switch engine,
was put on in front of the regular engine
to help pull it up the grade. Just as the
switch engine reached the curve near the
bridge it jumped the track and the regular
engine, directly behind, knocked the
switch engine directly across the track.
Galvin, the engineer of the first engine,
and Probst, bis fireman, were thrown
under the wreckage and both men were
fearfully cut and bruised. Woodbury, the
switchman, was in. the cab at the time of
the accident and is perhaps the worst
injured. The engineer and fireman of the
regular engine, Henry Doll and Thomas
La Plant, suffered only slight scratches,
though violently shaken up. Doll was
caught under the engine, and La Plant
landed in the sandbank.
A number of horses in a car in the mid
dle of the train were so badly injured
that they had to be shot.
The Margaret, Rondo and Central pa
trol wagons were soon on the spot and as
sisted in caring for the wounded, and in
removing them to the hospital.
Engine companies Nos. 4 and 9 were
called out and quenched the fire that had
started in the wreckage. They also as
sisted in caring for thU wounded.
Both engines and many of the cars were
totally wrecked and the loss is heavy.
Train Load of Oranges Via the
Great Northern.
Only Nine Day* From the Groves
by Water and Rail—lmportant
Fourteen carloads of oranges will ar
rive in Minneapolis. Friday, direct from
Los Angeles. Cal.. after a nine-days' run.
The train left Seattle yesterday. This
phenomenal time is due to the fact that
the train bearing the fruit is a special,
and that it is necessary to get the oranges
to market without an hour's delay. The
fruit was in fine condition when the cars
left Los Angeles, but the shipment re
quired fast time between the coast and
the twin cities and Chicago to insure its
preservation hence the tremendous hus
tle ot the Great Northern road which is
handling the fruit train.
This shipment was made possible by
the helpless attitude of the Southern Pa
cific and Santa Fe roads, which have been
unable to furnish cars for the big orange
crop of the Pacific coast. The crop has
ripened, too, much faster than In ordinary
seasons, and the conditions are such that
other roads had to handle the fruit or
leave it to rot in a market where there
was no sale for it.
An Important Innovatio.
The traffic department of the Great
Northern is deeply interested in its
orange train, as on its safe and satisfac
tory condition depend many future ship
ments. The Southern Pacific and the
Santa Fe roads have for years been op
pressors in the California fruit belt, so
say shippers and commission men, and but
little attention has been paid to the
proper care of the fruit business. A con
stantly growing local business has en
listed the attention of the western traffic
officials who felt so sure of the eastern
fruit business that they have been deaf
to the demands for better service on the
part of commission men. They had the
shipments to make, and they would make
them in whatever time they chose, con
sistent with handling their local busi
ness. This is the crying complaint of
fruit men in the eastern markets, and
may result in a revolution in the methods
of handling the fruit crop of the coast.
The present shipment was made by
steamer to San Francisco, where it was
transferred to the steamer Umatilla
which delivered the oranges to the Great
Northern at Seattle.

Board of Education Has Only $50,
--000 for Building.
Board Is <'on»iderlnu a Report From
the BulldiiiK < uuinillet- I'liU
The board of education will have about
$00,000 for building this year. This sum
is Quite inadequate to provide for the ex
panding wants of the schools in the matter
of room, bui the limit is set and the board
purposes to make such use of the money
as to assure accommodations for the larg
est possible number of pupils.
It lias been decided to erect no new
buildings this year and buy no sites, but
spend the mouey in fitting up additional
rooms in the present buildings and in
erecting additions. The board is engaged
f.Vis afternoon in considering a report from
the building committee as to how the
money can bc-sf. be expended.
The committee, which consists of Direc
tors Hicks and Pratt, made a tour of in
vestigation in company with Architect
Stebbins last Saturday. The committee
recommends an eight-room addition to the
Prescott school in Northeast Minneapolis;
one of the same number of rooms to either
the Monroe or Seward schools in South
Minneapolis; three additional rooms in the
basement of the Logan school in North
Minneapolis: a basement room in the Van
Cleve school in Northeast Minneapolis,
and the completion of one more class and
five more recitation rooms in the East
high school. The above improvements
will meet the most pressing needs of the
schools and practically exhaust the build
ing fund.
Preacott in a Bad Way.
The Prescott district is perhaps the
worst off of all. Here there are five out
sld-e enexes in use, none of them at all
fitted for school purposes. Xext in im
portance is the Monroe district, where
there has been much complaint for two
years past on account of crowded condi
tions. The commmltteeinen could not
agree on the location of the proposed
eight-room addition. One wanted it at
the Monroe school, the other at the Se
ward. The Monroe is now a sixteen-room
building, the other twelve.
There is need, too, for additions to the
Lyndale and Bremer schools, but the com
mittee has decided that nothing can be
done for them this year.
The additional romos in the Blast high
school will accommodate 200 pupils. The
grades, seemingly, will be well provided
for by the additional rooms In the Pres
cott and Van Cleve schools, but should
the demand require it, the abandoned
Marcy school will be opened either in
whole or in part.
The pressure on the Central high will
be relieved by a new rule to go into effect
next fall, changing the Central school
line from Tenth avenue S to Chicago
avenue. It is estimated that this will di
vert about 50 present Central pupils to the
South high.
Mayor Aineg* Program Wan Carried
Only three of the board of corrections anil
charities, including the mayor, were present
at last night's meeting. But they were
enough to carry through the program mapped
out by the mayor. Charles H. Brown, father
of Mayor's Secretary T. R. Brown, was
elected clerk of the board, to fill the vacancy
made by the death of Mr. Owre, and John
Ames, son of the mayor, was appointed as
sistant at the city hospital. The latter's
duties .will be to answer telephone calls at
the office and otherwise make himself useful.
He will draw $20 per month, Jus* half the
sum he has been receiving in private em
ployment. Mayor Ames explained that the
salary question was unimportant. It was the
discipline of the position that the boy needed.
A resolution was passed directing the secre
tary of the board to present the county com
missioners with a bill for $750 for care of
patients sent to the city hospital by the
sheriff and the- probate judge. Hitherto the
city has cared for he county patients free of
A rumor has gone the rounds at the capl
tol to the effect that the Buileigh bill in
creasing the representation In congress goes
into effect immediately, and that Minnesota
is entitled to nine congressmen at the com
ing session next December. If this were
*he case, Governor Van Sant would have to
call special elections in the sixth and ninth
districts in order to complete the delegation.
The story is baseless, as the Burleigh bill
does not go into effect until the next gen
eral election. Some ground wa« given for
the rumor in activity of candidates for con
gress in the new districts, who are alreody
campaigning, though election is twenty
months away.
The situation in the ninth district is inter
esting, and members of the legislature from
that section are already speculating on the
outcome. They predict that S. Q. Comstoek
of Moorhead will enter the race next year,
and that he will have the support of Elmer
Adams. The northern counties, It is believed,
will bring out Senator Grindeland. Ezra
Valentine of Breckenridge will come in if
conditions are right. If these three contes;
for the nomination, it will be hard to pick
the winner. All three are strong men in
their respective sections. Comstoek is better
known all over the district, but Valentine
made a good many friends in his unsuccess-
ful contest with Eddy, and Grindeland's rec
ord in the legislature is known in his favor
all over the Red River valley.
If the board of control bill passes in its
present shape, as it is quite certain to do,
the board of prison managers will go out
of existence, and, among other duties, the
board of control will have to assume the
function of paroling prisoners from the pen
itentiary and the reformatory.
The Deming parole bill, which is now on
the senate calendar, provides for the parol
ing of life prisoners by the board of prison
managers, with consent of the board of par
dons. When both bills are finally passed, the
prison managers will go out of existence and
the power delegated by the Deming bill 10
that board will be transferred to the board
of control. The courts will, of course, take
knowledge of the intent of the act, and Its
efficacy will not be Impaired; but should the
board of control bill pass first, the Deming
bill ought to be amended and brought up to
The famous "dog bill," now in the hands
of the governor for signature, is held by
attorneys In the legislature to clearly in
valid. The bill imposes a tax on dogs, an<l
| the proceeds are to go Into a fund for reim
bursing farmers for sheep killed by dogs.
It makes no difference whether a man's own
dog kills the sheep, the state is to pay him
for them. This point was raised in the Ju
diciary committee, but the bill went through
because there is a demand for it in the coun
try. It is quite certain that the courts will
knock It out if It Is ever tested.

Killed by a I alilnn Limb,
Special to The Journal.
Fergus Falls, Minn., March 26.—Henry
Cummings, of the town of Llda. died yester
day as the result of injuries received while
at work in the woods, the limb of a tree fall
ing and striking him on the head, and the
blow resulting in paralysis of practically his
entire body. He was about 40 years of age
and leaves a wife and family. He was a
member of the Workmen's lodge of Pelican
Rapids, and the funeral will be held under
the auspices of that order.—County Treasurer
Butler reports tax collections amounting to
about $20,000 during his recent tour. The
collections last year were about $2<J,i)oo, the
falling off being due to poor crops.
, Chicago Times-Herald.
"Pa," said little Georgie, "how did
truth get into the well?"
"Oh, I dunno." his pa. replied, "unless
she was thrown in by some fellow who
was expecting a visit from the tax as
sessor. Now keep quiet; I want to read
about Mrs. Nation."
Organized to Secure the Release of
the Boys.
He Said the "Society" Wtut Raising
Funds and Doubtless Had a
Considerable Sam.
A well-known senator is telling a queer
story among his friends. Last year he
visitfcd Kansas City. One evening at his
hotel he grew rather friendly with a
Missourian and passed the evening with
him. The Missourian expressed sorrow
because the Younger brothers had been
unable to secure their release from Still
water, but declared that the friends of the
boys were undaunted and were still at
work in their behalf, and would secure
their release in time.
"Why," he said, "there is a regular so
ciety among the friends of the Younger
boys in this state. They are collecting
money to help them out, and they must
have a big sum by this time. There will
be another attempt made before long."
Whether the man was simply talking
for effect or really had accurate informa
tion, the Minnesota senator does not
know. He assisted in killing the bill for
the relief of the Youngers two years ago,
and will oppose the present measure. He
is sorry, now, that he not unable to se
cure more definite evidence on the Young
er matter when he was in Kansas City,
as the temptation to spring it on the sen
ate is very strong. He will, however, say
nothing on the subject when the bill
comes up for passage.
The senator in question does not for a
moment accuse any members of the legis
lature of being influenced by unworthy
motives, and least of all does he cast any
reflection on the sincerity of the author
of the bill.
Minneapolis Business Men Make
Some Plain Statements.
Cedar Rapida Road Must Enter the
City Directly If It Wuui»
The Minneapolis shipper appreciates the
value of quick delivery enough to know
that the plans of the 8., C. R & N. to
enter Minneapolis by way of the back yard
through. St. Paul are squarely opposed to
the real interests of this city. The job
bers have been discussing the proposed
extension thoroughly and they regard the
proposition of a roundabout route from
Faribault through St. Paul as strange
policy for a road to pursue that expects
to get most of its twin city freight from
Minneapolis. The Minneapolis shippers,
and especially the jobbers, appreciate the
addition of new territory to that tribu
tary to this city, but they are not slow
in stating that the circuitous route
through St. Paul would make few friends
for the 8., C. R & N. in Minneapolis and
would add little to their territory. They
can reach much of the southern territory
with the roads that now run into this
city. They would be forced to ship over
the 8., C. R. & N. to but few points and
with the favors of the road extended to
St. Paul entirely, the Minneapolis shipper
would feel that he had little in common
with the 8., Q. R. & N.
Mr. Stevenson of Patterson & Sfeveri
son said:
A direct line from Faribault would be ap
preciated by the jobbers of Minneapolis and
the buyers In that part of the state. It would
give us new territory, and would also give
the merchants of that section better freight
service. Sending their trains through St.
Paul first means that the road would give
that city the advantage in securing the visit
ing buyers. The road would simply be mak
ing no effort to secure the good will of
Minneapolis shippers and would have no rea
son to expect anything. Wo are public-spir
ited enough to favor the roads that are will
ing to show Minneapolis favors. We do not
believe in favoring a road that wants to
handicap us by giving a rival city first
chance at the buyers and better facilities
in shipping.
What Mr. Partridge Say*.
George H. Partridge, of Wyman, Part
ridge & Co., said:
Minneapolis wants that extension and it also
wants the terminals. J do not believe that
the 8., C, R. & N. will adopt a discriminat-
ing policy against Minneapolis as the large
percentage of its freight must come from this
city. If it showed a disposition to discrim
inate it would certainly lack the good will
of Minneapolis shippers and that is a big
item in securing business.
Maurice McDonald of McDonald Bros.,
wholesale crockery, said:
The tonnage of Minneapolis in the jobbing
lines exceeds that of St. Paul. There is every
reason for the 8., C, R. & N. to favor tb.il
city. There is every reason why it should
not discriminate against it. We should not
feel disposed to give any more business than
was absolutely necessary to a road that would
make us only a side track town.
Ernest F. Smith, of Smith & Zimmer,
farm implements, said:
It is a decided disadvantage to ship freight
from this city by way of St. Paul on account
of the delay occasioned at that point. It is
also of decided disadvantage to the city to
have trains from a territory directly tribu
tary to Minneapolis running through St.
Paul first. To the customer in town for a day
only it means that St. Paul has one and one
half hours' more time to offer the visitor
and that is quite an item to the business man
and the lady shopper. Most of the roada
going south get three-quarters of their busi
ness from Minneapolis. If the 8., C, R. &
N. or any other road passes its trains through
St. Paul first and gives to St. Paul its pay
roll and yards, it certainly has little to ex
pect from the Minneapolis shipper with the
southern territory so well Ironed.
W. J. Dean's Ideas.
W. J. Dean, of Dean & Co., farm im
plements, said:
The 8., C, R. & N. can expect few favors
from Minneapolis when in the extension of its
line and the running of its trains it discrim
inates against the city. But there is a flrst
class reason for the road building a direct
line to Minneapolis from Farlbault. In the
first place it would tap a country that needs
a road badly and would also be in shape to
take advantage of a nice suburban business
that now comes to Minneapolis by teams or
in a roundabout way over other roads. I
have been through most of that territory
with a team. The people would appreciate a
direct line and would patronize it well. The
creamery business would be large considera
tion in itself. There would be little trouble
with grades and crossing the Minnesota river
at Bloomington would not be expensive. I
think that if this matter is presented to the
railway officials in the right light they will
think twice before turning down the direct
route into this city.
George H. Davis, of the LaCrosse Plow
company, said:
We have a good trade south. We want no
delays in St. Paul and (hat is what shipping
through that town means. We would appre
ciate a direct line from Faribault, but we
would not have enough interest In the back
yard route through St. Paul to remember It
with any more business than we had to.
George E. Htggins, of Anthony Kelly ft
Co., said:
Our experience is that the Minneapolis
shipper sending goods through St. Paul Is
subject to considerable delay, which is a big
handicap in the wholesale grocery business.
Any road expecting its share of Minneapolis
shipping must show the shippers of this city
some inducements. Giving St. Paul first
choice of the visiting buyers and also the
terminals and yards as well as subjecting
Minneapolis to delay In shipments is not
the policy that will attract business from

Dr. Sutherland returns from Cuba con
vinced more than ever that there is but
.one course for the United States to take
toward the island and that is exactly the
course that it is now pursuing. The
United States must hold the whip hand
there or it is all up with suffering Cuba,
he declares. The people are no more fit
for self-government, he avers, than a lot
of sixth grade school children axe fitted
to assume the management of municipal
affairs in Minneapolis. Any such experi
ment would assuredly be disastrous. The
people with property and education, and
all with anything at stake, realize this
fully, he found, and are bitterly op
posed to the scheme of absolute inde
pendence, knowing that it means anarchy
in very short order.
"One does not need to go to Cuba and

what is the proper thing for this govern

"You can sit down and read your papers
at home and learn all that anybody can

my opinion of the situation, gained by
reading the papers, and what I saw and

changed it one bit."
Dr. Sutherland enjoyed the distinction
of being driven about Havana by a sour

rank of general in the Cuban revolu

Although the Regiment Is Widely
Scattered the Attendance
Will Be Large.
The members of the Fifteenth Minne
sota Volunteer Infantry will hold their
first reunion Wednesday evening in Alex
ander Hall, Sixth street between Nicollet
and Hennepin avenues. The date chosen
is the second anniversary of the muster
out of the regiment at Augusta, Ga. Since
that time no attempt has been made by the
members of this regiment to hold a re
union, owing largely to the fact that the
men who composed the rank and file of
the Fifteenth were so widely scattered.
This was due to the composition of the
regiment, it being of purely volunteer or
igin and having had no connection with
the state militia.
The committee in charge of the reunion
is composed of Major James Elwiu. Cap
tain Charles Bond, Lieutenant W. T. Coe,
Quartermaster Sergeant E. J. McCall,
Corporals Burque and Gallop for Minne
apolis, Lieutenant Colonel Gotzian, Cap
tain John Finehout, Lieutenant Bookstaver
and First Sergeant Bunker for St. Paul.
The committee has made every effort to
reach as many members of the Fifteenth
as possible and a large attendance both
from the twin cities and the state at large
is expected. Captain Gilmore of Pipe
stone will bring in his whole company.
Company B of St. Paul will attend one
hundred strong and Companies A, I and X
of Minneapolis will be well represented.
Major Elwin has arranged a unique
and interesting vaudeville performance,
including dancing by the Queen of the
Midway, boxing, clog dancing and comic
burlesques rendered by professional tal
ent. Light refreshments will be served
during the evening.
Say* Flambeaux May Xot Have
Wanted Him to Entertain
Thomas H. Shevlin, republican national
committeeman for Minnesota, who has
just returned from a long absence in the
east, expresses surprise at the enmity
shown for him by the Minneapolis Flam
beau club. Mr. Shevlin says that he has
nothing against the Flambeaux. He sup
poses that the club is irritated because he
entertained the Roosevelt club when both
clubs were in Washington attending the
inauguration. Mr. Shevlin belongs to the
Roosevelt club, and, as he says, it was
only natural that he should entertain it.
Mr. Shevlin finds the lumber trade good,
especially in Nebraska and Kansas.
The Minnesota delegation in congress
are working together harmoniously and
effectively, and eastern people comment
on their ability to get what they want.
Moses Clapp will make a good senator,
Mr. Shevlin thinks.
