Aldermen's Impression of Mr. Fin
negan's Bribery Charges.
Says That Chief Engineer Tweedy
of the Wl«cou»ln Central Said
Fifteen Were Boagut.
The special committee of the city
council having in charge the matter of
the desired vacation of First and Second
avenues S for the use of the Wisconsin
Central railway investigated yesterday
afternoon a little suggestion of boodle,
and then by a vote of 6 to 3 adopted a
recommendation to the council to pass the
vacation ordinance.
The boodle suggestion came from A. J.
Finnegan, a real estate man, whose
brother is a property owner in the section
affected by the vacation. He attended the
recent meeting of several of the property
owners, which was addressed by D. B.
Tweedy, chief engineer of the Wisconsin
Central Railway company, and charges
that Mr. Tweedy made a distinctly boodle
announcement in the course of his talk
concerning the terminal plans of the
company. Mr. Finnegan decided to pass
the alleged statement on to a number of
the aldermen. The letters addressed to
Aldermen McOune and Holmes were the
first to reach their destinations. They
came to hand early yesterday, and at the
meeting of the committee, later. Alder
man McCune sent his letter to the clerk
with the request that it be read. The
conclusion of Mr. Finnegan's, the part
containing the boodle charges, is as fol
lows :
The Finnegan Charge.
At the said meeting I opposed the grant
ing of this petition vacating said stubs of
streets and alleys, when Mr. Tweedy
said in substance that he had fifteen of the
council now who would vote to vacate said
stubs of streets and alleys; that all he
wanted was three more, and he could pur
chase for $1,500 if It came to that. Now, I
do not think that any member of our pres
ent council should take kindly to this prop
osition, especially coming from a stranger,
in the way In which it was staid, and I
call your attention to the remark, and sin
cerely hope that you will learn this party
a lesson, and when this question comes to
a vote before the council, that you will re
ject said petition, and with no uncertain
sound, and let this party see whether he
can get this bill passed by the use of money
In our city council.
There were present, when this statement
was made, Mr. Knoblauch, A. E. Norton,
Mr. Oswald and Emil Perrant.
Promptly upon the reading of the let
ter several voices were hea.rd clamoring
for an investigation, and it. was agreed
that it should be held right on the spot.
Mr. Finnegan was in the room, also
Messrs. Knoblauch, Norton and Tweedy.
Knoblauch and Norton were called up to
the bar in turn, and each denied abso
lutely that Mr. Tweedy made any such
statement as was alleged, or said anything
that would suggest it.
For himself Mr. Tweedy said that he
hoped he was no such fool as to talk In
such ridiculous fashion, even if It were
true in fact that he had it in mind to
go into the business of buying aldermen.
Loren Lovejoy, another property owner,
was also present at the meeting, and a
little later appeared before the committee
and added his testimony to that of the
others who had refuted Mr. Flannigan's
statement. The latter would not yield
an inch, however, but reiterated. the
charges made in the letter and made them
a trifle stronger, and Messrs Oswald and
Ferrant were sent for. but did not appear.
Mr. Flnnegan Not Taken Seriously.
The committee decided unanimously
that it took no stock in Mr. Finnegan's
statements and proceeded to the business
before them.
Others of the property owners appeared
and asked for more delay in the vacation
proceedings, but it was not granted.
The committee's recommendation deals
with nothing more than is contained i»
the original vacation ordinance.
Whatever arrangement is made between
the property owners and the railway com
pany will have to come before the council
in the form of ajaother ordinance, or an
amendment to the present one. It is ex
pected that they will be able to come to an
amicable understanding before to-morrow
night's meeting of the council.
Marshall McClure of Minot, editor and poet,
floated into town like a Mouse river zephyr
to-day. He brings the glad news that the
eastern homeseeker is swarming into the
western part of North Dakota in bunches.
The Minot land office has a record of sev
enty-two .entries in one day. Ward county,
the home of several big lignite coal mines, is
six times as large as the Btate of Rhode
Island and in the course of a few years will
poll an immense vote. Mr. McClure sees a
hot fight ahead for Senator Hansbrough, who,
In addition to the usual round-up to which he
is accustomed, will have many new districts
to look after. The senator's friends are get
ting busy now. The Minot editor is one man
who believes that prohibition can never be
made unanimous enough in North Dakota to
make it popular, and he says that the western
part of the state feels that way.
A large party of lowa people, headed by
E. A. Bunker, is at the National on their
way to the Dakota* in search of land for in
vestment. The travelers come from Ochry
edan, lowa, where Indiana and Pennsylvania
people are buying land at a price that looks
good enough to the lowa man to persuade
him to let go. Many lowa peaple on the
hunt for northwestern land are that confident
In the future of the Dakotas that they are
willing to invest off the railroad several miles
and wait for the construction of new roads to
increase the value of their investment.
C. H. Anheier is here preparing parts of
the big fire festival program which will be
torn off at Fargo on the sth, 6th and 7th of
June. The big Fargo fire occurred on June 7,
1893. Each year Fargo has celebrated the
event, principally on account of the rejuve
nating effect which the blaze had on the
town. Mr. Anheier was one of the men in
charge last year. He promises that this
year's event will put in the shade the pre
tensions of all other western cities. A band
of 800 Indians from the Standing Rock reser
vation will be present to show the visitor how
the red man in all of his primitive glory ap
pears. A big band concert of 300 pieces will
be a feature, and an attempt will be made to
secure rates from the railroads that will make
a reunion of the Firat North Dakota volun
teers possible.
The southern Minnesota farmer has money
to loan. The reports from the bankers make
that sure. Among the recent visitors in the
city was Julius Holman of Kenyon, Minn.,
one of the bankers of that town. His institu
tion carries $165,000 of farmers' deposits. Mr.
Holman says that with the surplus which
many farmers have It is not to be wondered
at if the demand for cheap lands In the west
is a record-breaker this spring. The farmer
is looking for a chance to invest in farm
T. C. R. Crowell of Fargo is one of the
strange faces here. Mr. Crowell has bef>n 1
resident of North Dakota for about two years.
, During that time he has interested capital in
: two or three sugar beet propositions, and he
j has formed a large company for the mining
i of lignite coal at Kenmare. He believes that
the sugar-beet industry is to be one of the
most profitable and largest in the state with-
I In a few years.

The Flat Picturesque Hats of This
Beautiful Head Coverlnsa Shown In
Millinery Department of the
SpuclouM Store.
Do you know why a hat that is a perfect
dream at the milliner's frequently proves
a hideous nightmare when you try it on at
home? It is because not one woman In
ten knows how to put a hat on properly.
There is a certain angle for every hat
which suits its lines and if you depart a
hair'a breadth from that angle the har
mony is lost. The nine women who are not
always able to find the proper angle will
breathe a sigh of relief when they ccc this
season's hats. They are such great, flat,
picturesque affairs that It would seem as
if they would be becoming to anyone no
matter how they are put on.
There have been seasons when the hats
have been so unique and so odd that it
has taken us all of the season to become
used to their peculiar lines and bizarre
trimming. This spring it will be a case of
love at first sight for the soft, fluffy crea
tions in the beautiful summer shades are
sure to appeal to the vulnerable spot in a
woman's heart the moment she see* them.
The braids are so soft and fine, the chif
fons so light and airy, the flowers rival
nature and the colors would cause an art
ist to despair were he told to match the
many beautiful snades that riot in the
boxes of flowers and gauzes.
A Blaze of Color.
There is a blaze of color In the millinery
department of the Minneapolis Dry Goods
store and the big reception room resem
bles a social function as the women gather
around this confection, enthuse over that
and become excited over a particularly
ravishing combination of blue and pink.
Years and years ago, when our grand
mothers were girls, blue and pink were
the only colors worn by young women. The
pretty shades have been revived for the
girls of the new century and Miss Blum
has one entire case filled with hats in dif-
ferent shades and styles but all of them
pink. A Virot miodel is made of horsehair,
Cuban and Tuscan braids faced with deli
cate maidenhair ferns. , A heavy ruching
of mousseline de soie outlines the brim
that is wreathed with roses. A chic black
velvet bow among the roses is caught with
a buckle. In among the ferns is a cluster
of camelia blossoms and there is just a
line of black on the hair. A Wion hat is
made entirely of the hair braid in soft
mushroom colors. The mushroom effect is
heightened by the pink facing for all the
world like the "underside of the edible
dainty. The usual black velvet bow and
buckle form a conspicuous feature of the
Some Dainty "Affairs."
One dainty little affair has a brim of
white tulle pompoms. The crown is of
rose petals and a frill of gold lace falls
over the tulle. A white and gold hat is
encircled with a gold embroidered scarf
caught with two gold buckles. It is
trimmed with the fashionable "rotten"
roses. A quaint hat of blue, pink and black
yeddo braid is trimmwl with the dainty
Empire roses and rosettes of blue satin,
for rosettes have been revived with the
A hat that has been named for Bern
nardt is quite worthy of its name. It is
of black tulle, folds upon folds, faced with
more folds of white tulle. Pink roses are
crushed around the brim and right in
front is a big black velvet bow with a long
cut steel buckle holding it in place.
The hats to be worn with shirt waists
are as trim as should be. They are of the
new sailor shape with a slight roll from
the face. Both crown and brim are draped
with plaid silk and a black velvet bow un
der the brim raises it slightly from the
hair. The Scotch hat 5s on the Tamo-
Shan ter order filled with a scarf of tar
tan and caught with a bunch of rowan
Three Charming Roomti.
In addition to the great floor space that
is devoted to the millinery department the
Minneapolis Dry Goods company has fur
nished three charming little rooms in
which women can try on hats at their
leasure. Two of them are in red and the
third is in a lighter shade and the mirrors
repeat the pretty furnishings again and
Yesterday was the first day of the open-
ing and the women who stopped in to see
what might be shown were quick to take
advantage of the fortune that shines on
the early bird and many of the models
never went back to the cases.
It Id Being: Organized in Chicago
To-day—Will Unite With
The consolidation of ten big cereal mills
of the country into the Great Western
Cereal company will probably be accom
plished at the Auditorium Hotel in ChN
cago to-day. The new Pillsbury-
Washburn oatmeal mill, will be repre
sented in the combination, which has been
outside of the American cereal trust.
There will be present at the meeting
O. C-. Barber, Giles W. Brown, president
of the Sioux City Milling company; Joy
Morton, Henry L. Little of Minneapolis,
David Oliver of Joliet and L. C. Miles of
Akron, Ohio.
When the present plans are carried out
it is announced on good authority that
the consolidation of the Great Western
and American companies will be next
effected, a deal involving $40,000,000.
The Journal announced s*ome weeks
ago that this consolidation would un
doubtedly be effected. The reasons given
are that profit margins are small and
that it is necessary to combine in order
to prevent ruinous competition and the
enormous expense incurred by duplica
tion of methods to secure business in
competitive territory.
\<irihwt>Htpru Not Tncluded.
Although the dispatches mentiou the
Northwestern Cereal Company of Minne
apolis as being included in the combina
tion, the manager of that company says
that he is not represented in the meeting
ia Chicago to-day. The proposed trust
had an option on the Northwestern's plant,
but it has expired and nothing further has
been heard of the matter.
It is not known whether the effect of
the combination will be to close the Pills
bury-Washburn oatmeal mill. Officials of
the company said this morning that the
plant had been turned in at a certain figure
and if the combination was effected, it
would of course be able to do as it pleased
with its various plants.
The officers of the Great Western com
pany will be: President, Frank P. Saw
yer, Muscatine, Iowa; first vice president,
Joy Morton, Chicago; second vice presi
dent, Henry L. Little, Minneapolis; treas
urer, Lucius C. Miles, Akron. Ohio; secre
tary, David Oliver, Joliet, 111.

the 1901 appropriation are all sent out or
ready to send out as soon as the conditions
have been complied with by the applying
towns. Miss Clara Baldwin, librarian of
the state library commission, is now find
ing a little time to give personal assis
tance in library organization to the towns
engaged in establishing permanent libra
ries. She has recently visited Dodge Cen
ter and organized and classified the schol
library of 500 volumes which Is open for
circulation In the village. On the same
trip she went to Rochester to confer with
the board there in regard to a printed cat
alogue. At Red Wing she has reclassifled
the library on the Dewey system, the sys
tem originally adopted being sufficiently
No new lines of work can be planned or
undertaken at present, as the commission
will not know what funds It will have at
its disposal until the appropriation bill
pending in the legislature is passed. The
amount asked is $5,000 annually, but this
amount has been cut to $3,500 by the ap
propriation committee of the house. It is
probable, however, that the original
amount will be restored by the house.
Otherwise little or no expansion of the
■work begun will be possible. A curtailed
appropriation will probably mean the
abandonment of the summer library school
at the university, which was of great as
sistance to the librarians of small libra
ries. It not only increased their technical
efficiency but kindled their missionary
zeal by contact with enthusiastic and ex
perienced library workers.
On a Permanent Basis.
Two communities in the state have
placed their public libraries on a perma
nent basis this month by voting the one
mill tax, Walker and Winnebago City. Le
Sueur and Blue Earth City will vote on
the same proposition next month, although
Le Sueur has already asked for a half-mill
tax. The reading room fever seems to
have become epidemic, especially in the
northwestern part of the state. The most
enterprising instance being at Black Duck,
a new town in the pine woods north of
Bemidjl laid out about Christmas. At
Thief River Falls and Stewartsville the
women have already held meetings pre
liminary to organizing reading rooms.
At Wadena the proposal for the public
tax failed, but the library has such a good
start that it can -well afford to wait a
year or two for municipal assistance and
In the meantime it will not suffer for sup
port. Opened in November, it now has 400
volumes, with pleasant quarters for which
the rent for a year is pledged. At the an
nual meeting, recently, the following offi
cers were elected: President, Mrs. F. C.
Berry; vice president, Mrs. George R.
Kapler; secretary, U. G, Boyer; treasurer,
Mrs. J. H. Schantzgen; executive commit
tee, John Liddell, J. J. McKinnon and Mra.

Winona's Polish Library.
Winona has a Polish library of 374
volumes and a large consignment of new
books is expected daily. Owatonna has set
an admirable example of offering the use
of its public library to residents of the
adjacent country on very favorable terms.
The Wisconsin state law provides a plan
by which the farmers may have the bene
fit of town and village libraries. Under
this law and through private stipulation
by donors, 38 of the 100 public libraries
of the state are used by the neighboring
farmers. The Wisconsin Library associa
tion at its annual meeting last month ap
pointed a committee to promote this plan
and this committee has issued a circular
calling attention to its workings. The only
additional expense to the libraries is in
wear and tear of books. On the other
hand the interests of the towns in the
matter is increased by the fact that the
free use of the library is shown to In
crease trade, the farmers preferring to
trade in the towns where they and their
families enjoy library privileges.

Life Is Too Short
A dozen young men, students of the "U," have organized a new secret society
which is known to them as "The Institute for the Impedition of the Inevitable "
or ''The Academy for the Abeyance of the Almighty's Alternative." Just what the
society proposes to do is in a degree implied in its name, and if the members do
not too rigidly adhere to their pledge of secrecy they may from time to time aa
their work progresses, be able to give to the good people who are -working so
strenuously for longevity some valuable information which may assist them in the
solution of the baffling problem.
The members themselves confess that they have not yet definitely decided as
to how they are going about their work, but a few of the -wisest of them profess
to have a well-formed plan of study, research and original investigation, the re
sult of which they say they are reasonably certain will be very satisfactory to
those who are not satisfied with the appointed time for their departure from this
terrestial globe.
The institute claims to have among its members the best men of every college
in the university. The inception of the organization was in the law school, where
two prospective practitioners, in a discussion of the problems which the organiza
tion has now been called upon to solve, learned that each had a knowledge of the
question which should not be kept from the world, but to impart these views to
the public, they argued, would be simply the laying bare of their breasts to the
knife of ridicule by those of the unknowing, who are, unfortunately, in a vast
majority. So a dozen of the best thinkers in the colleges of law, medicine, agri
culture, dentistry, pharmacy and the academic department, who were known to be
like-minded, banded themselves together for the work, which will soon be well
under way. The second meeting of the Institute will foe held next Friday evening.
Sales of. Barlingtou Stock; Sliiee Feb.
15 Have Paused 1,750,000
New York, March 28.—The Erie, Bur
lington and Northern Pacific are linked
again in a new consolidation scheme
formed for the purpose of establishing a
great j transcontinental system. As in the
case of other consolidation - rumors, the
manipulation of stocks on the street has
given rise to such rumors as are floating
around, and these are so thick and variant
that it is next to impossible to tell /what
is really going on. ,
Since Feb. 15 up to and including Tues
day, March 26, sales of Burlington stock
have totalled in excess of 1,750,000 shares,
or more than 1% times the entire capital
stock of the road. Prom this fact it is
inferred that at least one-half of the
stock may have changed ownership.
The Evening Post says:
At present it may be stated on good au
thority that the effort to secure control of
the Burlington Is evidently in the hands of
Mr. Hill. J. P. Morgan has taken no ac
tive part in the negotiations, as he did in
those to secure the St. Paul. If Mr. Hill
succeeds in securing the Burlington and the
opportunity is offered to the Northern Pa
eiftc road to share with the Great Northern
in any guaranty or Join in the purchase
price, It will undoubtedly be accepted. At
the present time the proposal remains In an
indefinite shape, pending the outcome of Mr.
Hill's efforts to reach an agreement with the
Burlington directors. President Perkins is
understood to be on the way east and that
definite offers will be made to the Burlington
board this week.
It is said there will be an alternative
proposal to such of the Burlington stock
holders as disapprove of a lease to buy
their stock, which will be taken by the
Northern Pacific interests at a price as
sumed to be at least $180 per share.
Officers of the Chicago, Burlington &
Quincy and of the Northern Pacific rail
road companies say there is no founda
tion for the stories that an offer has been
made on the part of the Northern Pacific
for the control of the Burlington.
Defeat of Seattle Depot Scheme a
Great Northern Blunder.
Replying to the charges of newspapers
friendly to J. J. Hill in Seattle that the
responsibility of the defeat of the Seattle
depot scheme musf be laid to Northern
Pacific ofilclals, C. S. Mellen, president
of that road says: ■ •■':■"
The whole story is a mass of "misrepre
sentation and untruth." Neither the North
ern Pacific nor any one connected • with the
company, not excepting myself personally,
either directly or indirectly, had anything
whatever to do with the preparation of that
bill, with its introduction or with its defeat.
At no time were we consulted in regard to
it, nor were "we asked to render assistance
in having it passed by the Washington legis
The whole thing was . concocted and en
gineered by Mr. Hill's subordinates and by
people who assumed a greater undertaking
than they were capable of carrying out
alone. It was an ill-advised action, for
which at no time were we responsible, nor
did we assume to meddle with it In any way
•whatever. ; .',' V O'i

Milwaukee Said to Have Station
Ground In the S. Dakota Town,
Special to The Journal.
Pierre, S. D., March 28.—A rumor Is
afloat that the Milwaukee road has pur
chased a tract of land at Miller, supposed
ly for station grounds. It has been be
lieved for years that the road would build
through Miller at some time, as It has
a branch from Eureka south to -within
about twenty miles of Miller, and has
long had another branch extending toward
that town from the south, terminating at
Armour. Last year another extension was
built from Tyndall into the northern part
of Charles Mix county. :' Either of these
southern branches could well be connected
with the northern branch at Orient, and ;
make a through line across the state from
the southern counties to the north line
at Eureka. At the same time such a line
would give the road a shorter run from
its new cattle shipping j point' at Evarts
to Sioux City. \
