tures in the Federal building are to be re
placed with modern fixtures. The present
plumbing was put in fourteen years ago and
has been in use for eleven sears. It is about
twenty years behind the times. An inspector
has authorized the changes, as the present
fixtures are not sanitary. The work will
be paid for out of the general appropria
tion for the maintenance of public buildings.
Sealed proposals will be received at the office
of the custodian of the postofflce until April

The Lampert Lumber company will move

Lumber Exchange in this city on Friday
of this week. This company owns twenty
three lumber yards in Minnesota and
Wisconsin and comes to Minneapolis for
the reason that it is a more convenient
point for purchasing and furnishes im
proved facilities for handling business.
The fact that the lumber companies as
well as many other wholesale and manu
facturing concerns require the best facil

years it is probable that several of the
lumber companies of Wisconsin and east

toward centralization is having its effect
and Minneapolis is benefiting by it, as the
large concerns naturally gravitate to the

It was decided to remove some of her
clothing to the home of her own family,

spaniel, who had grieved much since
the death of his mistress, followed. It
was «fter a place had been found for the
late Mrs. Warren's effects that the span

Within a day or so the Wadsworth family
locked their house and left for California.
Twelve days later some members of the
family had occasion to go to the Wads

where Mrs. Warren's effects had been left

finding the dog. His imprisonment and
hunger had seriously affected him, but a
saucerful of warm milk seemed to revive

railroad company adjoining property lying
be*ween Sixteenth and Seventeenth, ave
nues N and between First street and the
river, six large lots in all, which were
not figured on in the original purchase.
The price paid for all of this property
was $114,000, a figure which represents
one of the largest real estate transactions
in recent years. Other property iv the
vicinity of that described has either been
purchased or is under option to the rail
road company, and tills, with the purchase
from Mr. Smith, will give the Omaha
about seven blocks of ground for addition
al trackage.
A large addition will be built to the
present freight house and some new tracks
will be laid, but these improvements are
all that are contemplated this season. The
big block of real estate was bought with
an eye to the future, and it will not be
improved until traffic conditions in Min
neapolis demand it.
The Smith lands by no means represent
all the Omaha's purchases of North Min
neapolis realty. Nearly as much more
ground is included and the expenditure
of money in North Minneapolis this sea

Bassett's creek is beginning to feel Its
oats. The stream which usually mean
ders quietly through town on Its way
from Keegan's lake to the Mississippi, has
assumed a fierce aspect which bodes ill
for anything that stands in its way. The
stream pursues its course deviously, and
the sewer crew can never tell whether
It is about to rip things up generally or
whether it will subside quietly after the
spring freshet.
The depth of water at Sixth avenue N
is about three feet and there is now about
a foot of ice at the bottom. The creek
runs along on top of the big sewer which
extends from the flats below Kenwood
to the river. Under the tannery and
knitting works it comes within four feet
of the keystone of the arches. Yester
day the anchor ice came up and gorged
under Dupont avenue, which is planked
over. It was necessary to tear up some
of the boards and remove the obstruc
tion. Workmen are now replacing the
timbers under Dupont between Fifth and
Sixth avenues, which caved in last fall.
The street has been shut off from traffic
for several years. A gorge has formed
somewhere near Washington avenue and
the overflow from the creek has backed
up on the low places along its course,
forming little lakes. Unless heavy rains
come it is probable that the creek will
carry off all the water without disturbing
the underpinning of buildings which are
built over the stream all the way from
Dupont avenue to the Mississippi.

can think of that name when I am writ

The growing scarcity of ivory will in
evitably bring bonzoline balls more and
more into use in billiard rooms. The
ivory balls used in the recent champion
ship match were afterward sold for 15
I guineas, and a set that has been in use
for twelve months and can be relied upon
to keep true is almost priceless. There
is an impression abroad that the Billiard
association is opposed to the use of bon
zoline balls, but the World of Billiards
declares that this is not so. It is rarely,
indeed, that a bonzoline ball gets out of
shape, and their absolute accuracy is an
immense point in their favor. On this
acocunt they are quite unequaled for
pool and pyramids, and in a very few
years' time it is quite certain that noth
ing else will be used for those games.
Then ivory balls are utterly useless in a
temperature like that of Africa or India.
Bonzoline balls, on the contrary, seem to
be unaffected by heat or cold, while it
is another small point in their favor that
they are colored all through and never
need anything in the way of redyelng.
Of course, they do not "play" exactly irke
Ivory balls, and a week or two of steady
practice is necessary In order to accus
tom one's self to the change.

Striding Idea a Minneapolis School
He Would Have the Born and Girl*
of Minneapolis Organize lor
_. ' Sanitary Pnrpotei.
A mighty health army composed of the
34,000 school children of Minneapolis la
the fascinating idea of a Minneapolis
schoolboy who also enjoys the distinction
of being a Journal Junior. At the age of
14 he is interested in all municipal prob
lems and believes that nothing but munici
pal cleanliness, of the freshly-scrubbed
kitchen floor variety, is needed to dissi
pate all contagious diseases and make
Minneapolis the healthiest and most beau
tiful metropolis in the world.
The young man's boldness of conception
is only equaled by his modesty in pro
mulgating his idea. He does aot want his
name mentioned, at least, not at this
His idea is to have all the boys and
girls in Minneapolis, old enough to under
stand what such words as cleanliness,
sanitation, filth and rubbish, mean, or
ganize themselves into a great army for
the preservation of health. He would
have health brigades, or regiments, in each
neighborhood, officered and authorized to
proceed along certain lines of sanitary en
deavor. - Each brigade or regiment would
have its neighborhood scouts to scent out
all dead <-ats, dogs or vermin, all un
sightly, disease-breeding ashheaps with the
accumulations of winter festering in their
nastiness, all dangerous dumpholes where
refuse is thrown by law-breaking persons,
in Bhort all things that come under the
eye of the health commissioner's minions
and a good deal more—the junior young
man would see, smeli and remedy.
The plans he has in mind for the ac
complishment of so large an undertaking
are too elaborate for exploitation in a sin
gle newspaper article, but every boy and
girl will understand in a general way -what
is proposed. The young njau's scheme is
to make Minneapolis as clean as possible,
and to have the school children organize,
appoint inspectors, direct the attention of
the health department to bad places that
may have escaped notice, and in every way
possible contribute to the beautifying of
Dr. Quinby Is Pleased.
When this colossal scheme was broached
to President T. F. Quinby of the board of
education, he laughed heartily and then
grew serious. He said:
The boys and girls of Minneapolis could do
a great many things if they had a mind, and
there is great educational value in the boy's
idea. Just what the children might do in a
practical way it is hard to say, but the agi
tation of such a proposition can do no harm.
The health department is doubtless doing the
best it can, and is perhaps obliged to neglect
a good many places that need attention owing
to the Inability of its inspectors to be every
where at the same time. However, any sug
gestion that inculcates ideas of cleanliness in
children's minds is healthful and helpful.
Such ideas continue in after life, and tend to
establish habits which produce beneficial re
I scarcely know how the school children
could heli- the health department, but if they
are encouraged by the young man's sugges
tion to observe the conditions in their neigh
borhood, the benefits of such observation and
inspection would be incalculable. The moral
and educational influence would be very great
if the children should early learn something
of sanitation and the various schemes for
municipal cleanliness and municipal purity
as well. The idea is novel, and while no im
mediate, practical benefits could be expected,
the love of order, of cleanliness and right
living, as opposed to disorder, squalid sur
roundings and filthy accumulations, which
would be inculcated, would take deep root.
Personally, I am greatly interested in hu
manitarian instructions for children. They
should early be made to understand the help
lessness of the dumb animals about them.
They should learn how to prevent cruelty to
all dumb creatures. I think this Is of prime
importance. Few children realize how help
less the lower animals are, or how subject
to abuse they are. They cannot complain of
cold or hunger or ill treatment. They are
helpless. The children should be taught how
cowardly it is to abuse such animals, and to
become interested in schemes for bettering
the condition of all helpless creatures. I
think there ia less cruelty to animals in the
United States than ajiy other country, and it
is because of our humane teaching.
Predictions That the City Will Cave
in From Overtop Weight.
New York Mail and Express.
There was nothing about him to indi
cate the crank. He was neatly but not
fashionably dressed, and his good-natured
countenance was of the corpulent order.
He glanced reflectively out of the rear
window of a Third avenue cable car at the
tall buildings along Park Row and
Broadway and for a moment looked seri
"Too much weight," he said to a fellow
passenger beside "him, nodding his head in
the direction of the buildings. "Too much
weight entirely. People don't seem to
realize that the lower portion of this city
is only a crust of rock, with water of
great depth beneath it. They keep put
ting up building after building of great
height and weight, and some day there's
going to be the greatest catastrophe of
the ages. The whole blooming lower part
of the city, or a good portion of it, will
cave in under the enormous strain put
upon it by these s-kyscrapers, and the
loss of life and property will be incalcu
'Just think of the weight that crust has
to sustain. Millions of tons of iron arriv
ing here every year to be used for girders
and rafters. Millions of tons of brick and
mortar are used in constructing the
buildings, to say nothing of marble, gran
ite, and other kinds of stone, and all piled
upon that frail crust of rock, which must
give way some day under the strain.
"Then there's the bridge, too. It can't
last forever. Some day it is going to
break down under the additional strain
put upon it by the trolley and steam cars
now running to Brooklyn. Imagine the
scene at a crush hour some night—trolley
cars on both sides laden with people, the
promenade crowded, and trucks in a
steady stream. Suddenly one of the ca
bles gives way. The other, unable to
stand the strain alone, also parts arid
people, cars and trucks are dumped into
the river like a shovel of coal into a
bucket. Oh, it's bound to come, I tell yo*.
"Then there's another big upheaval that
threatens this city. By the time the next
mayoralty campaign comes around, the
people of this city are going to be treated
to a sensation such as they never had be
fore. They will see to what extent vice
and corruption have been practiced, and—
what| do you get off here? I'm sorry."
London Athenaeum.
Let it be said in this connection that
in the ideal anthology of English verse
a sense of proportion must needs be ex
hibited. One star differs from another
star in glory*, and it is the business of
the anthologist to recognize the differ
ence. Mr. Qulller-Couch, in assigning to
Tennyson four more pages than he gives
to Shakspere, five more than he gives to
Wordeworth, six more than he gives to
Keats, eighteen more than he gives to
Burns and twenty-three more than he
gives to Byron, shows at once that his
sense of proportion is not perfect. It is
not as if this book—this "Oxford" book
were confined to such things as lyrics
and sonnets, for it is not. Mr. Quiller-
Couch selects, when he thinks proper,
from long poems, and as he has thought
well to include passages from the longer
works of Milton and others, why has he
not thought well to do the same for "Don
Juan," and so forth, in which Byron is
at his happiest?

More Englishmen Said to Be Needed
in That Country.
London Saturday Review.
The establishment of more English
settlers in South Africa is nothing less
than a national duty. The country popu
lation being almost exclusively Dutch,
agricultural settlers are the kind of im
migrants most required, since it is in the
rural districts that it is most desirable
to introduce English men and English
ideas. To this must be added the further
consideration that as the labor basis in
South Africa is native, not European,
these agricultural immigrants must be
persons who are possessed of the capital
and intelligence necessary to enable them
to develop their holdings and utilize the
already existing supplies of colored labor.
If English emigrants are to be sent out
on this errand they must not be drawn
from the ranks of the agricultural labor
ers, but they must be selected from among
the sons of the landed gentry and the
Agricultural laborers would not be able
to take m> small farms unless they pos
sessed a certain amount of capital, and
even then they would be unable to gain a
livelihood unless they were endowed with
intelligence and resolution quite beyond
the average; for they would have to ac
quire a knowledge of Dutch and Kaffir
and be able to control the natives. As a
general rule, therefore, Immigrants of this
class would only be useful as overseers
and foremen on large farms. The men
who are to go out to farm and raise stock,
to grow fruit and subtropical produce
must be men who already possess some
experience of such industries, or who,
failing this experience, are prepared to
spend the time and money necessary to
acquire it. In short, the settlers who
are wanted are men who can command a
little capital—say from £500 upward—
and are otherwise qualified by their train
ing and associations for this particular
phase of colonial life.

Thin Year's Junior Annual Will Be
More of it Mirror of College.
The last of the "copy" for the Gopher
of this year's Junior class at the "U"
was taken to the printer this morning.
Most of the work is now done. Not all of
the advertisements are yet in, a few
"cuts" are to be made and others must
be changed before the matter is ready for
the presses. The dedication has not yet
been definitely decided upon and the board
is considering several forms of binding.
It is not probable that anything new in
the way of a cover, like that used last
year, will be attempted, but the
binding will be substantial and pleasing.
It has been the intention to make this
year's Gopher a more exact chronicler of
college events than the publication of the
past few years. While attention has been
paid to the literary side, it has not been
at the expense of other features which,
older college men say, appeal to the peo
ple who read the annuals.
Some seventeen members were last
night elected to the Sigma XI fraternity,
an honorary scientific society, opon only
to students who have done special work
along some special line. The names of the
new members will be read in chapel to
morrow morning by the president.
Officer Knod«oii» Good Work in the
Snow Storm.
In the blizard of a week ago Benjamin
Smith, 717 First avenue S, would have per
ished from exposure bad it not been for the
prompt efforts of Officer Knudson of the Nic
ollet avenue detail. The patrolman found
Smith lying unconscious in a doorway on
Xlcollet avenue, several blocks from his
home. Picking the man up In his arms he
carried him to shelter. Smith is a sufferer
from 'heart disease, and this morning he vis
ited headquarters for the first time since
the night of the storm. He is loud in his
praises of Officer Knudson and says to him
he owes his life. The matter has been brought
to the attention of Mayor Ames and the pa
trolman is in line for a forthcoming promo
Senate Judiciary Committee's Vierr
as to Road and Bridge Fund.
The senate committee on judiciary has
taken issue witji Attorney General Douglas
on his ruling that it would be illegal to make
appropriations from the state road and bridge
fund for the benefit of the roads and bridges
in the various counties of the state. The
members of the committee apparently ignore
the fact that the fund must be disbursed by
the highway commission. They take the view
that inasmuch as there was no state roads or
bridges the money should be expended on
the ordinary highways. Senator Young has
been delegated to confer with the house
judiciary committee. It is expected that the
committee will recommend that the various
bills already introduced be pased, although
Attorney General Douglas has held that this
cannot be done under the law.
lee In" the River Will Go Out
, 'Easily.
The ice in the river above the new dam
has not yet showed signs of going out.
There is ■ a break between the apron and
the V dam above, caused by the swift cur
rent, but elsewhere it appears firm. It Is
not expected that there will be a repetition
of the disaster of two years ago, when the
boom sticks and piers were carried away
when the ice went out all at once. The
cold snap has checked the tendency to
break up, otherwise the ice might have
gone this week. The first sign of ice giv
ing away is along the shore. It breaks
away from the land first and then moves
along with the current. No such appear
ance shows yet above the dam. The ice
below the dam went out some ten days
ago. The prospect for a high stage of water
is good, owing to the heavy snows and late
rains. •
Van' Sent Keeps Three of J.I mi's
Staff in Office.
Governor Van Sant has reappointed three

The governor has also appointed Colonel
C. J. Montfort, of St. Paul, as commissary
general, and J. C. Donovan, of Tracy, as

ments have not been officially announced.
The Omaha Gets Another Piece of
The Omaha road has secured another
block of the North Side river region for
the extension terminal facilities it is now
counting on. A deed was filed with the
register of deeds this afternoon transfer
ring all of the block bounded by First
avenue N and the river, Sixteenth and
Seventeenth avenues N, to the road.
The property was purchased for $14,000
from Henry H. Smith and Julia Smith,
who bought it recently from Nels Ander

Banker Lamm of Mankato Decides
I'pon a Change.
Special to The Journal.
Mankato, Minn., March 27.—Stephen
Lamm and wife and daughter and Mrs.
Fred Kron returned yesterday from an
extended trip through the south. Mr.
Lamm purchased city property in New
Orleans and San Antonio, Texas, and in
tends to make his home in one of those
cities after this year. He was greatly
pleased with both. He is president of
the First National bank and is reputed to
be Mankato's wealthiest citizen. The
reason for his leaving Minnesota is the
employing of tax experts to ferret out un
assessed personal property. He believes
that he has been struck harder than he
ought to be in proportion to other people.

A Tendency as Noted b> Geo. H.
George H. Partridge is back after a trip
of several weeks through the east and
south. Mr. Partridge says that the spring
traffic iv dry goods has been better in the
middle west than on the eastern seaboard.
One feature of the dry goods trade is the
tendency to a far larger consumption of
home manufactured goods than a few years
ago. In addition to that the Amerioan
manufacturer is rapidly improving the
quality of his fabrics.
Mr. Partridge says that like all other
northwestern people in all other years he
anticipates a good crop this season. If the
prospects by the middle of June are such
as he hopes for, all lines of business in
the northwest, will be wonderfully stimu
lated and a large trade certain.
Satisfied With the New 7th District
—The Primary Election Bill.
Congressman Frank M. Eddy of Glenwood
.was in the twin cities yesterday en route for
Glenwood. He left his family in Washing
ton and will return after attending to some
business matters at Glenwood.
"AH is quiet now in Washington," said
Mr. Eddy this morning. "All eyes there are
on Nebraska. It will be a great shame if
that legislature does not send two repub
licans to Washington. If it fails, the next
legislature is likely to return democrats.
•I see that after this term I will be in a
district of a different latitude from the old
seventh. Weil, it is a splendid district, one
cf the best in the state.
"The primary election bills is a good thing,
but it must be amended in one particular to
be effective in our district. The date set
for the primaries, Sept. 1, is too late, fall
