SPLENDID SHOWING Fine Arts Society's Second Exhibi- tion Is Now Open. ROSA BONHEUR'S GRAND "LION" Local Artiata Are Well Represented •—Picture* by Chase, Freer and 91 any Others.' The second annual exhibition of the Minneapolis Society of Fine Arts opened yesterday with a press view in the aft ernoon and a private view for the mem bers in the evening. The showing of 125 canvases of merit effectively hung in the attractive gallery of the library was a very satisfactory one. The commanding picture of the collec tion is Rose Bonheurs "Lion," in which the monarch of the desert is raising his Uawny, majestic head proudly. The pic ture expresses splendidly ihe qualities that make the liou the symbol of irrestible power. William Chawe Well Represented. W rilliam Chase is represented even more strongly than last year. Three of his picture*, are landscapes, but these show much variety. They have -all of the best qualities or composition, atmosphere and rich but soft coloring. "Early Morn ing at the Shlnnecock Breakwater' 'has the great breadth, the refreshing coolness and quiet of the morning hour. "Over the Hills and Far Away" reveals a wide ex panse of broken country through which a path winds onward until it melts away Into the sky line. Mr. Chase also has a fine still life of excellent arrangement and coloring. On the end wall opposite the Bonheur picture is Frederick \V. Freer's "The Old Gown," a simple natural picture of a woman standing robed in a quaint figured white gown in empire fashion with a soft scarf drawn carelessly over one shoulder, the other end trailing into an open chest in the background, from which these treasures had evidently been taken. Mr. Freer has also a pretty bit of green land scape, "A Corner of the Field," and two girls on the beach, "The Voice of the Sea." Not Many Port mi t» and Figure*. The collection is weakest for portraits' and figures, the chief figure piece being Childe Hassam's •"Penelope." It is a long panel showing a garden in the full blaze of a warm summer day, the glowing ' masses of faliage being almost framed by ' suggestions of surrounding buildings. All ! this forms a background for the figure of ' a white-gowned woman sitting in the luminous pale blue shadow, pensively em- . broidering. The figure, although modern. haa the line^ and characteristics of the I Greek ideal, the profile showing the Hel- j lenic type, while the reddish wavy hair is twisted in a Greek knot. Mr. Hessam ' also has a landscape with the same glow- | ing colors—"Sand Dunes of Cape Cod." Another very interesting figure painting is a pastel portrait of Mrs. Hagerman by ! Cadwallader Washburn, a Minneapolitan, 1 although most of his work has been done ' in New York and abroad. The drawing, harmony of coloring and management of ! light are excellent and it is an attractive | piece of wcrk. Mr. Washburn has two j landscapes in which his treatment of water i is good. One is called "Running Stream ! in Monteuil-sur-Mer," another is "A Riv er," the cool, blue, quiet water show ing masses of green in its softly wrinkled surface. l.ni'ul ArtlHtH Show Good Work. Minneapolis has no need to apologize for the work of any of its artists shown. "The Strike" by Robert. Koehler, although familiar, has never been seen under such favorable circumstances and its fine quali ties assert themselves in the distinguished company. Its nobility of conception and the Eenuineness of its sentiment are as impressive as its strong technical quali ties. H. N. Gausta has one of his carefully studied Scandinavian scenes, showing a mother and child standing expectant on the steps' of the home while in the dis tance along the road the father approaches in the falling evening shadows. Alexis Fournier is represented by "Evening Glow," a brilliant canvas lent by G. H. Partridge. It shows a sky filled with flowing cloud masses reddened by the lin gering sun's rays, while over the meadow the same rich tint is repeated in a slightly softened tone and gleams on a meandering i ?tre-im. Mrs. Gertrude Barnes "In the Pleasant Orchard Closes," gives one a pleasant sen sation of restfulness and the soft, cool greens and the pale yellow of a harvest field seen through trees make an agree able color stbtrre. Mrs. C. \ J Crocker has a sunset that is full of rich, well-handled coior and Miss Clopath shows an interesting pastel of two snoernakcrs leaning over their work. Emil AMberg lias an autumn scene at Wash burn Park that has caught the spirt of the region. Miss Agnes Harrison has a small portrait of Miss .Moulton that is easy and Da'.ursl in rose and dainty in coloring. Doagjami Yolk and Max Bohni. Douglass Yolk is represented this year only by loans of pictures owned here but these are an interesting contrast to his more recent successes shown last year. His pictures include a decorative panel, "Music," a >mall head, "May." a portrait group, of children enjoying a birthday party, and "Children at the Brook." Max Bohm also interests the friends of his wife, formerly Miss Newcomb; he has one cf the best and most interesting pictures in the collection, a nameless genre, lent by. Mr. Partridge. It shows the interior [ of a humble cottage in a dim light. The buxom housemother has her sleeping in fant clasped to her breast as she leans over to stir the small fire under the bra zier set under the chimney of the great ! fireplace. Two little children leaning j against the wall with arms about each i other's shoulders, watch the kettle with \ hungry interest. Some of the Other Paintings. Among tht noteworthy canvasses many must be n:-..--sed wit't a irere mention that an- worth extended consideration. Ed ward Bell's "St. Cecelia,' is the only not able example of purely decorative paint ing, but it is a gem of exquisite coloring acd dreamy sentiment. Homer Winslow has a strong winter marine. Clara Mc- Chesney has a virile portrait of a violinist, full of ftrength and life. Loeb's "Woman with Poppies," is admirable in color, and his "Invalid" is full of tender feeling. Kronberg is represented by a strong group j v hich ia:liides a graceful but somewhat j timid ballet girl making her first bow. a dark oriental figure on a panel and a crarming!/ natural picture of a baby on ' the floor rn^ong his toys. Among the few Dortraits those of Paul I Kirk Thomas show good handling of tones, I •;lrong dray.-ing and easy poses. Svend j Svendsen has a snow picture "Winter i Eve" that will attract much attention. Wsdter L. I'aiiLH'i has a snow 3cene and a warm, rich bit of Venetian landscape show ing groups of saiis and domes. E. W. Redfteld spared two excellent canvases from his own ' exhibition in Philadelphia, I a canal boat tied up amid snow and ice' | and a view of the Seine with its busy traf fic at Pont Neuf. Alice Mumford's portrait of a boy is a good piece of work. Among other interesting landscapes are Gran ville-Smith's, George Xoyes', Charles War ren Eaton's. C. L. V. Butler's, and i Charles Francis Browne's. Carroll Beck with has a splendid modeled figure on "Destiny Contemplating the Ravages of I War," gazing upon a background of smok- j ing villages. E. A. Cones is represented j by a fine religious subject. "The Adora- j tion of the Shepherds," and a moonlight' on the beach. WANT A SHORT LINE Agitation in Favor of an "Omaha" Cutoff From Barden. DIRECT ROUTE TO MINNEAPOLIS People Along the Sioux City IJl\ ln loii Wuiit to Get to Minne apolla I'lrnl. Now that the business men of Min neapolis realize that an important rail way line has been extended northward from northern lowa and southern Min nesota to St. Paul, making Minneapolis the next station after St. Paul, there is an awakening which may result in some desirable, if tardy, benefits to this city froru other railroads entering the twin cities. The Omaha road threads the rich dis trict to the south of Minneapolis and St. Paul, but all its passenger trains from that section go straight into St. Paul first. They come to Minneapolis aftewards, but the road was built with St. Paul as its objective point, and St. Paul is the first of the twins to greet the out-of-town cus tomer when the Omaha's trains pull into twin city territory. There has beeu fre quent complaint of this state of things. line Front Harden. The idea of certain business men. some of whom are members of the commercial Club, is to bring pressure to bear on the Omaha in the hope of inducing that road to build a cut-off from its line near Bar den, and run its day trains, at least, into Minneapolis first instead of St. Paul, as at present. The Omaha's ireight trains now get into Minneapolis from southern Min nesota without making the circuit of St. Paul, but that is because the road has running rights over a part of the Minne apolis & St. Louis. Barden is a station near Shakopee. about twenty miles dis tant from Minneapolis. The hope of the business men is to have a line built from that station, or some favorable point, di rect to this city. George'D. Dayton of Worthington, Minn., a representative citizen of southern Min nesota, says the people of his section are deeply interested in the movement to se cure the entrance of the Burlington, Cedar Rapids & Northern road into Minneapolis, without going around by way of St. Paul. Said Mr. Dayton: Mr. Dayton* Viewa. "Our people are glad to see the agitation undertaken by the Commercial club of Minneapolis to induce the Burlington, Ce dar Rapids & Northern to enter Minne apolis first. There is no good reason, ap parently, \>hy this should not be done. Minneapolis is much the larger city and has the prestige which goes with it. For merly, St. Paul was the only city heard of in southern Minnesota and northern lowa, but that was many years ago. There is j groat interest among our people in this ! matter, and we hope the Commercial club will accomplish something soon. "The day trains of the Omaha, too, should reach Minneapolis first from our j section of the state. This could be ef- j fected by building a cut-off, and with the I growth of Minneapolis and the great ad- j vantage to the people residing in the! southern district, it seems to me the pub- | lie spirited men of Minneapolis should j strive for its accomplishment." While Mr. Dayton did not say so, it is evident that he believes, in common with many other men in his section, that some body has been sound asleep for several months in Minneapolis or the predicament in which the city finds itself regarding the Rurlington, Cedar Rapids & Northern ex tension could never have come about. la It Too I,ate* It is understood that President Ives haß said that it is now too late to change his plans, and that St. Paul, having been se lected as the first twin city station, through the purchase of'the St. Paul Belt Line, there is no hope that Burlington, Cedar Rapids & Northern trains will ever reach Minneapolis without first going through St. Paul. OPEMXG THE XORTH COUNTRY Vortlieru Part of the State Attract ing? Attention. At the present time the Brainerd & Northern Is extending from Bemidji north into the Black Duck country. The objective point of this road is the Rainy river, but It may not be reached for a few years. This road will furnish an excel lent route for the Minneapolis jobbers to reach the extreme northern part of the state. The Canadian Northern, which is build ing east from Winnipeg, partially encir cling Lake of the Woods, comes into northern Minnesota and furnishes com munication for some of the northern towns, such as Roseau and Warroad. j These towns are among those asking for! better communication with Minneapolis, i The jobbers of this city sell a large amount of goods in that part of the state. ' Some of them are sent through Winnipeg in bond, but the most of them go to Stephen and are transported by team some seventy miles into the interior. The jobbers of Minneapolis are confident that in the course of a few years the northern part of Minnesota will be the home of some of the finest mercantile es tablishments in the state. The country is rich in timber, minerals and fertile land. Immigration is pouring in this spring, a large number of new stores are being established in the interior, and it is only a question of a short time before the demand for better communication ' with Minneapolis will grow much stronger and it will become a subject In which the combined business interests of this city may well take a deep interest. The Soo people three years a^o went so far as to send men to investigate a possible route | through Cambridge, Minn., and north into Itasca county to the boundary, but the Great Northern is said to have discour aged the move. It is thought that the intention of the Great Northern people is to tap this country by an extension of the Eastern Minnesota from Milaca through the Mille Lacs country, which is calling for a road. GIVE THE NAME Habit of \ililrc KMiiiK Letter* "City" Often Make* Trouble. Few people realize the trouble that is caused in postofflces by the habit of writing ■"city" in the superscription, or the more fashionable word "Town" instead of che name of the city. The habit is so strong that business mpn, when off on trips and writing home, often unthinkingly address tb°ir let ters "City," when ihey mean Minneapolis. In towns that have New York uife buildings, it frequently happens that mail which is in tended for New York Life building, city, gets sent on to New York r-ity There is a rule in the weather bureau service which al lows no mail to be addressed "City." Another frequent source of delay Is the abbreviation habit. It often happens that Me." for Maine will be written in such a way that it may be read, Maine, Missouri or Mary land. GETTING A HOLD IN IOWA Minneapolis Jobbers Covering; the State Very Thoroughly. I .George S. Powllson, whose home is in Dcs i Moines, but whose time is spent in acquaint j ing the dry goods trade of lowa with Minne j apolis brands, is in the city to-day;.. Mr. I Powllson dees not telieve that there is any .territory in' America over which Chicago sends more couriers than lowa. The perfect ing of railroad communication with the north aids Minneapolis 7 and the excursions this spring had their'own good effect. Minne apolis Is now a factor in the dry goods "and shoe business* in every section of . lowa and her' prospects -'grow/better eve-y yepr. Mr. Powlison says ? that candidates. for governor are becoming !bo numerous in - lowa that the politicians | are 'forced to ■ refer to . wrUten lists of aspirants before being- able to enumer ate them- correctly, / " I : T" . TWO HUNDRED CHEESES BIG COMMISSION ROW SEIZURE The Loot Wm *iot Full Cream Cheese, It I> Alleged, hut Skimmed Milk. The state dairy and food inspectors made a raid yesterday in the commission district and great was the excitement. Two hundred boxes of "cream" cheese is now in posseslson of the state. The firms formerly in the possession of the cheese are Grinnell, Collins & Kneen, 212 Sixth street N, and E. P. Stacy & Sons. The charge they faced in the municipal court this morning was a violation of the state food and dairy law. It is claimed by the state officers that the cheese pur ported to be full cream cheese, while as a matter of fact it was a skimmed milk variety and not so labeled as required by law. Judge Dickinson continued the hear ing until to-morrow morning. GOING AFTER MINN. LAND IOWAIVS LOOK TO THE NORTH A Party on the Way to the Red River Valley—Cheap l.uuiln Attract Many. The lowa farmer and tiie lowa business man are freauent visitors in Minneapolis this spring. They come to look for infor mation regarding the prairie lands of northern Minnesota and the Dakotaa. The Red river valley, as the result of the ad vertising given it by No. l hard wheat, is a special favorite with them. A delega tion from Estherville and Huntington is at the V^ndome. The Estherville mem bers of the party are George E. Delaven, John Montgomery, Peter Hanson, and A. D. Root. S. Reany and James Montgomery come from Huntington. The party is bound for Grand Forks, near which it has an option on a tract of considerable extent. It will also take a look at the valley coun try north of Crookston. Mr. Delaven is Ftato game and fish warden in the Hawk eye state. He says that the lowa farmer has made money during the past ten years and the ordinary interest rates now ruling are not to his liking. He thinks he can obtain more for the use of his money in northwestern realty investments and is following that clue. Mr. Delavan says that the cheap lands of the northwest are the one big hope which the renter in the high-priced states clings to. HERE TO BUY GOODS Bniinrm Women Talk of Trade In Various Section* of the State. Mrs. John Buckmau, of Maple Lf-ke, who is regarded as one of the most successful busi ness women in Northern Minnesota, is in the city. She is sure tbat traffic will be good in that part of the state this spring. Mrs. Winger of Herman, Minn., who has been in this market for the past few days, comments upon the satisfactory condition of collec tions. Trade prospects in Grant county she considers good. Mrs H. Blenke of Freeport, Minn., says that land sales hav^ besn active in the vicinity of Freeport, prices ranging from $18 to $22 per acre. Miss Nellie Corkey of Hibbing predicts a boom fcr the range country this year and especially for Hibbing. Many new mining properties will be worked for the first time. A large number of people are arriving there from lower Michigan and Wisconsin Immigration promises to be the largest in the history of the range. WILL READ L'AIGLON Mr». Bertha Knnz Baker's Compli- mentary Recital. The sale of tickets for the dramatic re cital to be given for the Teachers' Club by Mrs. Bertha Kunz Baker, will begin to morrow at the Metropolitan Music com pany. The recital is complimentary to the members of the dub, but tickets are sold to the public. This entertainment is en tirely separate from the course given under the auspices oX the club and will be given Friday night at the First Baptist church. Mrs. Baker, who comes heralded as one of the few great dramatic readers of the day, will be heard in a most exacting piece of work, Rostand's splendid poetic mas terpiece, "L' Aiglon," which sets forth in intense scenes the pathetic life story of Napoleon's weakling sou. In this play Mrs. Baker represents no less than fif teen characters. AN AMICABLE AGREEMENT Wisconsin Central and Property Owners Compromise. The meeting of the special committee of the city council to consider the Wisconsin Ceutral terminal proposition has t>een put over to morrow on account of the unavoidable absence of some of the members. It is thought now that the company will be able to arrive at an amicable agreement with the property own ers, and that no opposition to the company 1.? plans will b<? made from this source. The matter was discussed at length at a meeting of the property owners yesterday afternoon and a solution of the difll-.-ulty suggested. It is likely that the company will consent to build a spur track fcr the accommodation of the property owners In return for their con sent to the vacation of the alley in the rear of their premises. SLATE MACADAM ALL RIGHT Aldermen Find the Paving Stands the Winter. The paving committee of the council, accompanied by the city engineer, took a trip to Sixth street SE this morning to in vestigate the merits of the slate macadam pavement that Alderman Lane had laid i for one block last summer. The investi i gation showed that the pavement had come through the winter in good shape and was standing the spring traffic suc cessfully. It is likely that much of this pavement will be laid in the city thas summer. TREE DIVORCE SUIT .luilne Tree's Son and Marshall Field"* Daughter. A*w> York Sun Special Service.

Merrill returned yester day from a month's visit in the South. He extended his journey to Cuba and spent ten d^ys in Havana observing con ditions there. He enjoyed the privilege of a ball' hour's talk with General Wood. The majority of the younger generation of Cubans, lie found, are in favor of inde pendence for the island. They believe that they can successfully direct their in ternal affairs and that the United States, in order to protect the integrity of the Monroe doctrine, will necessarily have to protect them from outside interference. The Spanish residents naturally want the United States to cintinue in control, as it is plain to them that when the United States lets go they will have to get out, too. Mr. Merrill was much impressed with the cleanliness and orderly condition of the city and enthuses over the fine water sup ply. FUNDS EXHAUSTED End of the Sewer Appropriation Haw Been Reached.

GREW UP WITH THE COUNTRY .1. A. McGonan VVbu Went to Mon- tana Fifteen Years Ago. J. A. MeGowau of Plains, Mont., who is in the city to-day, is a forceful illustration of what any man can do for himself by taking advantage of opportunity. Mr. McGowan went to Montana fifteen years ago as a com mon laborer on the Northern Pacific. He is now one of the prominent merchants of his part of the state. Plains is Just over the divide, where the weather is always pleasant In winter and the valleys are much like the popular vision of Eden. Montana expects a big trade in every part of the state this year. Her people have caught the infection of good times and her business men are put ting in big stocks of gaeds. All of the min ing camps are running full crews and the smaller towns that depend upon the receipts from stock tyre enjoying the result of high prices for the products cf the range. ST.
