Souvenir Book No. 2 is almost ready, and will contain a list of pioneers who have died in the past two years. This list includes a large number of names from Henenpin county. COAL IS CHEAPER Tlie City will Abandon Mill Wood as Fuel. The water committee of the council yes terday ordered four carloads of coal screen ings for use at the North Side pumping station. It is proposed to abandon the use of mill fuel and go back to coal. The experiments that have been in progress at the station for some weks to determine the relative cost of mill stuff and coal for fuel have demonstrated that at present prices the work can be done "cheaper by the use of coal. • WISCONSIN ALUMNI MEET Professor and Mrs. David Frankerburger of the University of Wisconsin were the guests of honor at a reception and banquet of the twin city alumni of that institution, held at the Aberdeen, St. Paul, last night.

FROM'LUNNON'TOWN Percy Walton Comes Back After a Long Visit. MOURNING; FIREMEN; CLOTHES He Talk* Learnedly and Interest ingly Abont All Three of , These Topics. Percy A. Walton, the well known fire insurance man, brother of Edmund G. Walton, has returned from an extended visit to his parents in London. Mr. Wal ton was glad to escape the oppressiveness caused by the mourning to be seen on every hand in England, as- every loyal subject of King Edward Is still wearing black in honor of Queen Victoria. "England contains no subject so poor but that he displays some little black to indicate that he is in mourning for the queen," said Mr. Walton. "Every com mon laborer, every coster, the rich and the poor, all have a bit of black. It may be only a black band on the hat, or a black crape scarf, but everywhere black is in evidence, and its purpose is under stood by all men, natives and foreigners rUJm. The London Flre Department. '"While in London I made a thorough examination of the fire department, pay ing particular attention to the engines, fire escapes, hose carts and other appara tus directly concerned in a flre. Through the kindness of Major Fox of the salvage corps, a special drill was made for my benefit. Fr.om the time the alarm was turned in, it took two whole minutes for the men to come down from their quar ters, put on their helmets and belts, get out their horses and be ready to leave the floor. I ventured to tell Major Fox of some records I had seen made in Minne apolis, and while he politely refrained from saying so, he looked as if he didn't believe a word of it. He tried his men again, after our talk, and it took them just thirty seconds to get the wagons ready to start, but this time they were standing behind the wagon in full uni form. "They have no automatic door openers, none of our time-saving devices in fire harness construction, and in fact every thing is slow, clumsy and awkward. The horses are the finest I ever saw, however, and the uniforms of the men are magnifi cent. The department buildings are very fine, having sitting rooms, kitchens 1, two bed rooms and store rooms for each man and his wife. These houses are also mod ern and very comfortable." Patriotic Wagers. Mr. Walton found his countrymen just as confident as ever that the Boer war would be speedily terminated. He said it was quite common for wagers to be laid that De Wet would be captured be fore morning, notwithstanding a great many mornings have elapsed since the opening of hostilities without his having been captured once. In the important details of personal at tire, Mr. Walton said that in London creased trousers were no longer the cor rect thing. American^ might cling to the idea for a while, but as they take tl^eir styles from London, they will have" to abolish, the creases or be out of the fash ion. The British overcoat is a mere bag, according to Mr. Walton, and consists of two baggy slices of cloth hanging down from the shoulders. He is unable to tell much more about it, except that his American coat wasn't in it anywhere. A SOAP HOUSE GHOST The Respectable Eighth Ward De velops One. The old Bradshaw soap building on the First avenue car line where it crosses the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul tracks, at Twenty-ninth street, is accused of being haunted. The old building has not been used for several years ai> a soap factory and its emptiness has tended to the rapid development of any ghost germs which might have escaped the action of the lye' used in the soap manufacture. It is not known -whether cold or warmth is neces sary to the propagation of the shades that infest the building, but at any rate the pasi winter has been conducive to their growth, for the other evening as a young man passed the building he heard a rattl ing of the window bars. Looking up he saw & sight which lie "'will never forget" until he joins the Buffaloes. Standing back from the window a short distance stood a wondrously large man enveloped in a green vapor. His face was like the label put on cigarette boxes in South Da kota, the skull and erossbones. His cheek bones were very protuberant and from his eye sockets issued an illuminated green mist. When he had broken the spell by force of will the young man ran. The scientists who have been asked concerning the apparition say that it is a seeming appearance caused by the ex halation of fumes of surgeons' green soap which has not yet evaporated from the vats. NO PROTECTION Internal Revenue Tax .In Not a License. . The following ruling which has just been made by Commissioner of Internal Reve nue Yerkes on a case, in Kentucky where local option prevails applies as well to "blind pigs" here or — elsewhere: The United States does not issue licenses to liquor dealers in any state. Every per son who engages in. the sale of alcoholic liquors anywhere in the United States is required to pay special tax under the in ternal revenue laws of the United States; and there is no warrant of law for omit ting the collection of this special tax from persons who engage in such sales in any state where local option laws prevail. But the special tax stamps issued to such per sons as liquor dealers are merely receipts for the tax paid and are not licenses and do not protect them in any way from pros ecution, conviction and sentence under the local laws for carrying on their business in violation of those laws. ,'„"-' PAN-AMERICAN MINSTRELS \aine the ''Sojer" Boy* Have Taken as Entertainers. The committee on arrangements for the minstrel shows which are to be given by Companies A, B, F and I to provide means for their attendance at the Pan-American exposition the first part of August, have adopted the official name "Pan-American Minstrels." Major Corriston is president of the executive committee; Captain Smith, treasurer, and Captain Langdon, secretary. The committee on transpor tation is composed of the four captains: Al Flournoy has been engaged as director, and B. A. Rose, musical director. Cap tains Rowley, Smith and Donaldson have been appointed committee on program. The tickets are ready for distribution. The Lyceum has been engaged for May 6, 7 and 8, when the shows wH4 )5e given. The Value of Snow. The value of snow both as a manurial agent and a pufifier of the air has been shown by recent experiments conducted In London. Snow was collected from the city and from the suburbs. After it had been melted the water was analyzed. The snow from the suburbs gave 10.65 grains of solid matter to the gallon and city snow gave 17.32 grains. We will have to revise our expression, "Pure as the fallen snow," and instead we can say with scientific exactness, "Pure as 'Golden Grain Belt beer." for it is brewed from the purest barley malt and hops. If you haven't a case at home, telephone "The Brewery," 486 Main. Hold a glass of this beer in the sunlight, then hold a glass of pure water or snow water beside it and see which is the clearer. Taste both and see which is the most satisfying. "Golden Grain Belt" beer, you will find, Is the most dejfreious and purest beverage ever pro duced. THE MIJSJJNi^ArOLIS JOUKNAL. I SAMPLE WALK "Kid" West Will Make a Record Between Twin Cities. SOME OF HIS LONGER WALKS From New York to 'Frisco in 128 1,! Days—His Collection of - ;. .■: ..:■■' ; ' Seals. > "...V "Kid" West, the globe walker, intends to give the twin city folk just a sample of what he is able to do in the way of walk ing. Among the feats he records are such little things as a walk around the world — that is whereever he could find land to walk on—a walk from New York to San Francisco and walks from all sorts of places to all sorts of other places, the dis tance between which offered some chance to show his powers. After hearing him de scribe such "turns," it seems very natural to speak of his proposed exhibition in the ■twin cities as only a sample. It will be on April 27 and will be from the West hotel to the Ryan in St. Paul, a distance of ten miles, which he says he will cover in less than 90 minutes. He says he will make a record for the walk that no one will have the hardihood to attempt to beat in the near future. May 1 West will start on a somewhat longer etroll from St. Paul to Buffalo, 1,250 miles, which he thinks he will be able to cover in thirty days at the most. Collection oC Seals. West has all sorts of trophies, picked up in his -wanderings over the face of the earth. Perhaps the most interesting thinga he carries are his "check books." These are not bank check books but books to show that he has visted the points along the routes of the different walks he has undertaken. In order that there might be no question about the authenticity of the signatures in these books, West in each case has had some city, county or state official certify to his having called, affix ing his seal to his sertiflcate. As a re sult West has doubtless the best collec tion of seals in the country. Among these is the great seal of California to gether with the certificate of the governor attesting that be *alled at Sacramento. A Transcontinental Stroll. West made his walk across the continent on a $5,000 wager for a purse of $500. The wager was made quite by accident, and grew out of the question of a friend as to the time it would take him to accomplish such a trip. Knowing the distance he estimated the time as 135 days. His friend offered to bee him he could not do it in that time. The bet was taken, the money was deposited and the walk made, West reaching 'Frisco in Just 128% days. On the way he wore out sixteen pairs of shoes. In order to vary the monotony of his occupation while on the way he killed six dogs which seemed rather desirous of preventing his winning the wager, 102 snakes and one wild cat. In crossing the Utah desert he says he was without food or water two days. During the trip West lost thirty-eight pounds. Starting at 138 pounds he weighed but 83 when he reached the Golden Gate. SIR JOHN_DAWSON A Handsome Biographical Sketch Published Here. The Franklin Printing company of this city has just issued an artistic piece of book work, a large paper edition with deckle edges and paper covers,. The work is a brief biographical sketch of Sit John William Dawson, C. M. G., LL. D., F. R S., F. G. S., by H. M. Ami, of the geolog ical survey of Canada. The work is a gift edition and from a typographical and artistic standpoint is irreproachable. It is a reprint, with additions and corrections,from the Ameri can Geologist of July, 1900, Minneapolis, Minn. The book is dedicated to "The Right Honorable Lord Strathcona and Mount Royal, Baronet,. Chancellor of McGill Uni versity." The front page is printed with the like ness of Sir William Dawson; the suc ceeding pages contain a biographical sketch, to which is appended a list of his writings arranged chronologically, from 1842 to his death at the close of 1899. The bibliography covers thirty-nine pages.cov ering a vast range of subjects. DICKINSON RAISED IT Point Involved in the Oleomargarlii Case. A gentleman who has been connected with the state dairy and food inspection department tells The Journal that Judge Danforth Dickinson is entitled to the credit for raising the point, in the first Instance, ou which the supreme court of the United States sent back the Brundage oleomargarin case for further consideration, by the state courts. Mr. Dickinson was assistant city attorney when the prosecution of Brundage was commenced, and argued the case before Judge Lochren when the matter was car ried into the federal court. Mr. Dickin son then set up the claim that recourse to the state courts should be exhausted before the matter was taken into the fed eral court. Judge Lochren sustained the appeal of the federal court on the ground that the state law was such an inter ference with interstate commerce that the matter ought to be determined promptly by the federal courts so as not to interfere with trade which might claim the protection of the federal courts un der the laws of interstate commerce. The supreme court, however, holds, as already stated, that this matter must first be carried through the state courts and all relief there exhausted before It can properly be taken into the federal courts or ever become a matter for the con sideration of the supreme court. This is a point which the attorney general of the state urged with such success in his re cent hearing in the supreme court. "DIGNITY OF FICTION" Subject of the Last of Dr. Moulton's Series of Lectures. Stanley Hall closes its university exten sion work this winter with the last lecture in Dr. R. G.

Special to The Journal. Humboldt, lowa, March 27. — Smallpox has been entirely stamped out in this county. No new cases have been reported for more than a month, in. all there are 150 cases, besides twice as many more shut up in quarantine. Quarantine was every where rigidly enforced, even when a gun was necessary. One person died of lock jaw superinduced by vaccination and many more have been sick from the same cause. People feared vaccination more- than the smallpox. The epidemic was only mod erately contagious and some unfortunates who sought every opportunity to take the disease and thus secure all-winter quarters at public cost, were unable to do so. MARVIN'S HEARING FIXED. Louis Marvin, the alleged bigamist of St. Paul, was yesterday arraigned in the police court. He pleaded not guilty and his hearing wa3 fixed Tor April 4. He was unable to fur nish $1,(100 bond and wa* remanded to the county jail. Indifferent to the Outcome. The prosecution rested its case yesterday in the Arne kidnapping ease, on trial in St Paul. The small 8-year-old child for whom tbe parents are battling takes but little in terest in the proceedings and spends most of his time in the courtroom soundly sleep ing. Judge Kelly's decision la expected soon.

AFTER THE STATE FAIR NEW BEGISXIXG OF SCHOOL YEAR Proponed to Arrange It So Pupils May Take In the Big Show. The advocates of the proposition to postpone the opening of the city schools in September for a few days to give the pupils a chance to see the state fair, are going to begin their campaign this year betimes. Last year the matter was brought td the attention of the school board only a few days before the opening of the school year, and the board refused to change the program on such short notice. The merits of the proposition were pre sented to the board at yesterday's meet ing by I. C. Seeley, who appeared in be half of the board of managers of the state fair. He asked that the school open ing be put over to the Monday following the fair. If the board felt that it could not concede that much, then at least give the children the first two or three days of the week for this purpose, he said. The matter was referred to the com mittee on rules. The board wants to be satisfied that there will be a general use of the state fair privilege before author izing a change in the established pro gram. Superintendent Jordan reported that there had been admitted to the schools up to date 36,265 pupils and that there were now 675 on half sessions. He included in his report a statement from Principal Hobbs of the North high school of the results of his scheme of serving noon lunches to the pupils there. Mr. Hobbs declared that it had been an unexpectedly great success in every way. Superinten dent Jordan officially indorsed the project and recommended that the system be ap plied to the other high schools. Chairman Hicks of the building com mittee reported the recommendations, of his committee in the matter of school additions for the year. In this connec tion he warmly commended the work of the school janitors. He said that he had never seen the schools in such wholesome condition as on the occasion of his trip last Saturday. WILL RAISE AN ENDOWMENT Macalegter College Trustees Prepare for an Active Campaign.

WILL GET IT TODAY THE DAILY BURLINGTON STORY This Time "Common Consent" Gets In Its Deadly Work—Rail '• road Notes.

Various surmises and "tips" were afloat as to the terms on which the control of the Burlington was to be taken over, but they all agree in saying that the Burling ton stock was to be retired in exchange for 3% per cent collateral trust bonds, guaranteed by the Northern Pacific, ac cording to the several reports, at the rate of $187, $200 and even $220 in bonds for $100 in stock. The report of the consolidation or "community of ownership" of the proper ties has advanced Northern Pacific five points. There are all sorts of rumors on Wall street regarding the Burlington, but the big operators are not disposed to take much stock in the latest story, while very many of the lesser lights profess to see in nine out of ten rumors of rail road consolidation only a desire to juggle the stock market.
