Senate Knocks Out the "Hoary Old
Steal."
JOURNAL AND TIMES DECLINED
A ■ ' . ' • '
\oi Lnuiiuii Friend*, of the . Meas
ure to Suspend the __.
Rule*.
The state senate adjourned sine die at
12:30 to-day, . after the usual courtesies.
Senator Stockton was again chosen presi
dent of the senate. On behalf of the sen
ate. Senator Young, in an eloquent speech,
presented Lieutenant Governor Smith
with a set of Motley's works, and Sena
tor Johnson presented Secretary , Langum
with a copy of the senate photo
graphic group. The usual set of "josh"
resolutions was read, and hilarity pre
vailed.
One time-honored custom was departed
from, that of appropriating $150 for repre
sentatives of the dally papers. The prac
tice was denominated this morning as a
"hoary old Bteal," and came in for some
other hard knocks. A resolution had been
introduced yesterday by Senator Brower,
voting $150 to the representatives of ail
the dailies except those of the Times and
The Journal, who had declined to
"come in." A similar resolution was in
troduced in the house, and the commit
tees on legislative expenses held a joint
session and decided to discontinue the
practice.
The committee reported the Brower
resolution appropriating $150 apiece for
the senate reporters for indefinite post
ponement this morning, and Chairman
Roverud moved its adoption. Sena
tor Brower moved as a substitute the
adoption of the resolution. It requires a
three-fonrtha vote to turn down the re
port of thifl committee, and Senator Ives
moved that the rule be suspended, which
only requires a two-thirds vote. The
chair ruled the supension of the rules in
order* in spite of protests from Johnson,
Knatvold and Roverud. The motion to
suspend the rules failed by a vote of 36
to 20, 42 affirmative votes being required.
The Voue was aa follows:
Benedict* McGovern,
Brower, McGowan,

Baldwin changed'his vote to no for purpose
of reconsideration.
Senator WUsoa, in explaining his vote,
said that the legislature had no legal or
constitutional right to vote away the peo-
pies money. A custom had grown up,
but the present was as good a time as
any to break away, and to let it be un
derstood in the future that the practice
was discontinued. Two papers in Minne
apolis, he said, had declared against the
custom, and that fact had considerable
weight with the committee in forming its
decision.
Senator Baldwin moved a reconsidera
tion, which was lost, 20 to 31, and on
the adoption of the committee report the
vote was 25 to 31. As 48 negative votes
are required to turn down the commit
tee report, it was carried.
The only extra stipends allowed were
to the two telephone girls, who received
$150 each.
Dr. Jordan Honored.
Governor Van Sant reported the ap
pointment of Dr. C. M. Jordan of Minne
apolis as a member of the state high
school board, and the senate promptly
confirmed it.
Senator Underleak tried to revive the
national park project by a resolution de
claring the legislature in. favor of the
proposition in case the investigation into
the matter shows the project practicable.
Daugherty gave notice of debate, and
made some heated remarks. Snyder dep
recated the raising of such a Banquo's
ghost, and Underleak laid it by, with
drawing his resolution.
A "Josh" (or Minneapolis.
Senator Ives, the senate wag, added to
the hilarity by introducing a bill attach
ing the east side of Minneapolis to St.
Paul, to take effect when Minneapolis at
tains the remarkable increase in popula
tion predicted by General Wilson in his
speech against the bill.
Senators Daugherty, M'cGill and J. D.
Jones waited on the governor, and re
ported that he had no further matters to
bring up, and they bromght a similar mes
sage from the house. Adjournment was
taken on motion of Senator Shell.
VETERANS' 811.1. KILLED
Peterson's Bill for Soldier*' Home
Yets Defeated in Senate.
Xo increase in the pension money al
lowance to the old crvil war survivors at
the Soldiers' home was granted by the
legislature. The Peterson bill allowing
the retention of $8 per month met its
death in the senate last night.
c;row CHILDRLIk. -"
The Period When the Nervous Ac-
tivlty Ik at Its Greatest.
The Home Doctor.
"Against the practice of giving tea and
coffee to children, we cannot speak too
strongly. Childhood is the period when
the nervous activity is at its greatest.
The brain is ever busy receiving new im
pressions, Reflex action, co-ordination of
muscles, and the special senses are all
under a special course of training.
The nervous system is pushed to its
utmost capacity, and long is the list of
victims that follow its over-stimulation.
In these little people nothing but harm
can come from the use of such cerebral
stimulants as tea or coffee. Bad, then,
as this practice is, let us as physicians be
aggressive in its prohibition.
Do not be satisfied by answering 'So,"
when asked as to its use, but let us teach
the families with whom we come in con
tact that such practice is evil. We speak
emphatically, because not only among
the poor and uneducated, but among the
rich, who should know better, this prac
tice is marvellously prevalent."
Children like a warm beverage for
breakfast and it is well for them to have
It if the drink is a food and not a drug.
Postum Food Coffee is made to supply
a rich, nourishing liquid food with a crisp
nta.ee uis-te, for those who cannot and
should not use coffee. Analysis shows it
to contain about fourteen per cent of
muscle-forming elements and 66.11 per
cent of energy and fat-producing ele
ments, which go to nourish and sustain
the delicate nerve centers throughout the
body and from which the vital energy
proceeds.
The supreme importance of proper food
in place of drugs is not generally under
stood, but the success of child or adult
depends largely upon proper sustenance
for the body. Children who depend upon
the intelligence of their elders to furnish
them with good food deserve our most
careful attention and thought upon this
subject.
SIMPLY IGNORED IT
House Refuses to Consider Lay
bourn's Resolution of Censure.
HE INSISTS, BUT IT IS IN VAIN
XewMpaper Men Fall to Draw Their
■■ ■' Uaual Prises—The Speaker ■
Properly "Jollied."
Almost the last official act of the house
of representatives was to decline to con
sider the Laybourn resolution censuring
the two members who were bold enough
to state upon the floor during the flght on
the gross earnings bill their belief that
improper means were being used to se
cure its defeat. Just before noon Mr.
•Dorsey moved to expunge the resolution
from the record. The house finally laid
that motion upon the table, but not until
Mr.. Laybourn had tried every resource
to force a direct vote.
Messrs. Jacobson, J. A. Peterson and
Washburn sat quietly in their seats well
knowing that Laybourn's substitute mo
tion could never be carried.
I.U}'llOUI'U'N \KKITHKiVfIIC.tA.
The original motion by Mr. Dorsey was
followed immediately by a display of ag
gressiveness on the part of Mr. Laybourn.
He insisted that his original resolution
be adopted. Numerous members had be
sought him to leave the resolution in its
original status. He would have been will
ing to do so though against his judgment,
he said, had it not been for this inde
fensible action on the part of Mr. Dorsey;
members of the house had suffered from
unreasonable, unwarranted and unjust
charges, from false and scandalous accu
sations and the vote of censure was
merited.
To prevent trouble the speaker officially
announced that the hour of 12 was at hand
and that it was his duty to adjourn the
house, but Mr. Laybourn persistently kept
the floor. S. D. Peterson moved to ad
journ a few minutes later, but the doughty
Duluth member would not yield. He de
clared that long service in the legislature
(referring to Mr. Jacobson) did not justify
libelous statements, even though made in
the heat of debate.
Frequent Outbreak*.
Mr. Laybourn has been frequently in
terrupted by outbreaks on the part of his
fellow members and there was a growing
restlessness. Dunn of Ramsey, an op
ponent of the gross earnings bill, declared
that at this stage the resolution could not
be safely discussed. He moved, there
fore, to lay the motion to expunge the
resolution from the records on the table,
and it was carried with a resounding roar
of "ayes." The negative vote was piti
fully weak and small.
Nothing for \'en«paper Men.
For the first time in many years the
newspaper reporters will go away from
the legislature empty-handed. Chairman
Larson of the committee on legislative
expenses, refused to call a meeting to
act upon a resolution introduced by Mr.
Dobbin allowing the newspaper men $150
each, and as a result the resolution failed,
it being impossible to command enough
votes to carry it under suspension of the
rules. Mr. Plowman, a member of the
minority, fiercely denounced the time
honored custom.
Some Drew Prizes.
The committee on legislative expenses
did report a number of gratuities. Those
who received the bounty of the state
were:
Simon Michelet, clerk of the judiciary com
mittee, $150; George H. Spear, first assistant,
clerk, $150; Jans S. Arneson, second assistant
clerk, $150; Jacob Grevstad, Martin Nelson,
Margaret Waper, Annie Ryan, Philomena
Morgan and Susie H. Johnsou, $25 each; John
T. Jones, reading clerk, W. W. Wall, en
grossing clerk, all doorkeepers and assistants,
the file clerk and the janitor, $100; Mrs.
Caroline Hammond, $l:> 0; Rose F. Chase,
stenographer, $75; J. H. Blood, $50; the pages
of the house, $3 per day.
Formal Adjournment.
There was more or less formality about
the adjournment. The speaker, just before
the motion was put, addressed the house
briefly reviewing the "very satisfactory
work" of the session, commenting upon the
character of the bills passed, the diß
patch with which the house had transacted
its business, and the generally satisfac
tory way in which responsible duties had
been attended to. A committee from the
senate, Messrs. Jones and Daugherty,
waited upon the house to apprise it of
the fact that the ( upper chamber stood
ready to adjourn and to inquire if there
was an communication to be made.
The speaker answered that there was
nothing to communicate save that the
house likewise stood ready to close it«
doors. Messrs. Roberta. Jacobson and
Laybourn were named to visit the gov
ernor and learn his further intentions, and
a report having been made that there was
no communication to be expected from the
chief executive, the house, on motion of
Mr. Smith, adjourned.
The customary resolutions thanking the
speaker for uniform fairness and courtesy,
and expressing appreciation of the
efficient service of the various employe,
were adopted. Mr. Sweet of HennepTn
presented Chief Clerk Schmahl with a
large and handsomely framed group of
the members. Mr. Schmahl responded in
a neat little speech.
Sikorski'M Last.
The hour of -adjournment was 12 37.
Before leaving the members held a social
session, with Sherman Smith of Minne
apolis In the chair. Mr. Sikorski of
Winona was induced to explain to the
house why his fish bill was defeated in
the senate. He said, in his inimitable
dialect:
By golly, the bouse is the poor man's
friend. This Mr. Senate, be fill his pockets
with money. If Mr. Senator ever go to the
river and fall In, I hope poor people never
fish him out of water.- Before election Mr.
Senate kissed the poor man's hand; after
election he don't know him.
The laughter at this point was so loud
that the member from Winona was forced
to discontinue.
HOUSE GLAD TO QUIT
Celebrates the Conclusion Last Night
With a "Rough House."
The house was busy less than half an
hour last evening, though its sitting con
tinued for twice that length of time. The
business of the session was confined to
concurrence in senate amendments to
house bills, to the passage of a trio of
measures under suspension of the rules,
and work in committee of the whole. The
adjournment followed upon the defeat of
a motion by Mr. Jacobson to suspend the
rules and put the Knatvold primary elec
tion bill upon its final passage.
The ,Duluth interests were afraid of
S. F. 862, by Senator Miller, a bill in line
with his resolution instructing the attor
ney general to investigate railroad con
solidation at the head of the lakes.
There was also a well-defined opposition
to several otlier measures certain to
come up once the track had been cleared.
Consequently, when the motion to sus
pend the rules to take up the primary
election bill had been defeated, Mr.
Jacobson moved to adjourn.
The consolidated strength of these
forces began to roll up an affirmative
vote. The speaker declared the house
adjourned at exactly 10:14. Pandemonium
followed, though the disorder was not so
great as in the senate. «
The Barker senate bill making an ad
ditional appropriation for the office of the
public examiner suffered along with the
Knatvold primary election bill. At this
almost universal regret was expressed.
Bouquets From "W. C, T. I.

SENATORS AT PI. AY
A Group of Frittky Solon* Prevent
Transaction of RuitineaH.
For two hours last night a group of
senators with Sheehan, of St. Paul, as the
center, kept the senate chamber in a tur
moil. It was very trying to the ma
jority, who were trying to do business.
After tolerating the confusion and horse
play for two hours the majority ad
journed in disgust.
Long before 10 o'clock senators, gray
or bald, began to throw paper balls at
each other. After a time a big paper
basket rose in the air somewhere between
Sam Lord and Ripley Brower and then
all dignity was cast to the winds over in
their corner. Everything throwable was
thrown, even the tin cuspidor. Every one
who spoke was a target for all kinds of
missiles. Speakers and roll calls were
interrupted in every conceivable way. A
basket was jammed over Senator Ryder's
head. It afforded a fine protection from
missiles, which came thick and fast, but
he delivered his speech from behind the
wicker mask as unconcerned and un
harmed as when the senate was on Its dig
nity. Even Senators Wilson and McGill
had to smile at some of the sallies, as
when the "kids" advised Stockwell to
change his name when he complained be
cause it was near the end of the alpha
betical list.
"The chair will now recognize Senator
Nixon," announced Senator Wilson.
"He will have a hard job doing it."
shouted the gay revelers in chorus, as
they buried Nixon in an avalanche of
paper. When the frolic was over there
were several inches of paper on the floor,
and most of it had once been very fine
lithographed stationery at that.

Killed Forest Reserve Bill.
Two attempts were made to save the forest
reserve memorial in the house yesterday,
but, unfortunately for all the people inter
ested in the movement, a rule adopted by
the senate in the morning gave the enemies
an unfair advantage, and they did not hesi
tate to avail themselves of the opportunity.
The rule in question called provided for "a
roll call of the seriate, and as each name was
announced, the senator was to be allowed to
select a bill, and if there was no opposition,
the rules were suspended by unanimous con
sent and the measure placed on its final
passage.
Stockwell and Underleak were naturally
near the end of the list, while Baldwin,
Uaugherty and McCarthy came early. Hav
ing been accorded special privileges for pet
measures, they selfishly and ungratefully de
nied their consent to a suspension of the
rules. It, therefore, became necessary to put
the question to the vote, but the motion
was lost by 40 to 14, as 42, or a two-thirds
majority are required. The bill would have
passed if decided on its merits, but a small
minority of fourteen were able to defeat the
proposition because it happened to come up
on the last day.
Sikorski's Bill Defeated.
Sikorski of Winona was allowed to speak
on his favorite bill, permitting fishing with
nets in the Mississippi river, in the senate
yesterday afternoon. His bill was turned
down by a vote, of 29 to 15.
Knatvold'* Insurance Bill.
Senator Knatvold tried to secure the pas
sage of a btll for the revision of the insur
ance laws of the state, but met with consid
erable opposition. The bill was really a book
of about thirty pages, and the senators who
woald have voted for it had they had time
for examination, adopted the rule of voting
no on propositions which they did not under
stand, and killed the bill.
Increase Knocked Oat.
The legislature adjourned without making
any increase in the membership of either
house. The Larson bill, which passed the
house, created a new district jjut of Redwood
and Lyon counties and added ofle representa
tive each for the forty-second and forty-third
districts, in Hennepin county. 'The senate
last uight amended it by stclktng out the
increase in Hennepin, but did po too late for
the house to agree on the amendment and
repass the bill.
Change In Plumber*' l.awi.
Labor Commissioner O'DonnfljlL assisted by
Michael Neary, worked hard for a bill re
lating to plumbers, and secured ita passage
last evening. It provideß a system of fines
and generally improves the present laws. An
effort was made to have the law apply to
the whole state^ but Senator Miller caught
ou to the change just in time and had ali
cities under 10,000 exempted, as in the pres
ent law.

They Unite in Praising the Work of
the Session.
Governor Van Sant is elated over the
record made by the session. He said this
morning:: ,; J .;.';l * -
"The legislature has covered itself with
glory. \ It has started the new century
well, as I predicted in my message. By
the way, practically every recommenda
tion I made to. the legislature has been
carried out.
"My principal recommendations were
the tax commission, the board of control,
and the primary election bill. The first
we expect to bring us money, the second
to save us money. Over and above all the
measures of the session in importance to
the people is the primary, election bill,
which gives the people an opportunity to
choose their own candidates for office."
State Auditor Dunn said: "In all my
experience of twenty-five years in Minne
sota, there has never been a legislature
that has enacted so much good legislation,
so much that the people want. For the
most part, the work they have done has
been beyond criticism.
"All the legislation I have recommended
has been adopted except some unimpor
tant matters. My main hobbies were the
tax commission, board of control and the
gross earnings bill. I recommended the
last in my report two years ago, and have
been exceedingly anxious to see it passed.
It went through in fine shape, and The
Journal contributed no small share
to that result. Whether the bill is con
stitutional or not, this legislature has
done its duty. There was no use in re
ferring that bill to the tax commission.
That was not my idea at all when I
recommended the commission. By the
way, I am expecting great results from
that tax commission. They are splendid
men and are going at the work in earnest.
"We have kept expense down so that
next year the tax levy will be the low
est in the history of the state. The ap
propriations have been large, but I think
we can keep within bounds.
"The senate has done well this winter.
Splendid records have been made in the
house by Jacobson, Anderson, Peterson,
Roberts, Ward and others. This legisla
ture has certainly set the mark."
ALL SMILES FORJLOPERS
Bride Is Welcomed and Bridegroom
Gettt a Good Poaltiion.
Boston, April 12. —A flutter has been
caused in Boston's best social circles by
the discovery of the secret marriage of
Carl Hayes ,a Harvard graduate and the
son of a prominent family, to Miss Flor
ence Agnes Gallagher, a pretty stenog
rapher. Mr. Hayes, who is 22 years old,
met Miss Gallagher in this city about a
year ago while attached to the local office
of Vermilye & Co.
The marriage ceremony was performed
in Providence, R. 1., March 23. He is an
only son, and it is related that he was
readily forgiven, and the family's new
daughter was welcomed. Vermilye & Co.
were much pleased with Mr. Hayes, and
offered him a good position in their New-
York office, which he had promptly ac
cepted. So Mr. and Mrs. Hayes are now
living in the Harlem end of that city.

PUNY CHILDREN
TOO MANY OF THEM DIE.!
i
Their Little Bodies Unable 1
to Stand the Ordeal of
Development.
WE THINK EVERY MOTHER IN
THIS TOWN SHOULD KNOW
ABOUT VINOL
It is the Delicious Tonic We
Advise for Growing
Children.
Is your boy or g-irl pale and listless ? I
Do they act differently" from other
children ? Do they sleep poorly and i
eat poorly ? Does your boy avoid the
sports and games of other boys ? Does
your girl complain of headache and
find her studies a hardship ?
If so, you may make up your mind j
they are growing too fast. They need j
something to help nature in her great j
work of furnishing the necessary ele- j
ments for creating flesh and muscle tis
sue, bone structure and rich, pure, red
blood.
They need a tonic in the full sense J
of the word and we can tell you what i
to get.
It is Vinol Wine of Cod-Liver Oil. the j
great modern reconstructor. Children
like it, it is so delicious to the taste, in
spite of the fact that it contains a
highly concentrated extract of the
medicinal principles that are found in
cod-liver oil.
But because the vile-smelling and
tasting grease has been discarded and
all of the other disagreeable features
eliminated, the benefits of Vinol are
easily understood.
Vinol acts favorably on the stomach,
creates an appetite and enables the
food that is eaten to do the greatest
possible amount of good.
Following is a letter that bears di
rectly on this subject:
" I was all run down and took Vinol.
It did me so much good and it was so
pleasant to take that I gave it to my
childi-en. They were growing fast and
needed something in the way of a tonic
and I found it to be just the thing for
them.'"—Sarah Pickering, 1933 Fall
River, Mass.
We cordially invite mothers inter
ested in the welfare of their children,
as well as any one else needing a sure,
safe and delicious tonic, rebuilder and
rejuvenator, to call on us. We will
gladly tell any one all we know about
Vinol and why we so highly endorse it.
Inasmuch as we are always ready and
pleased to refund the cost of Vinol to
those who don't find it exactly what we
claim it to be, it will be seen that we
are prepared to substantially endorse
our claims for the excellence of this
marvelous preparation.

STEVENS' BILL LOST
Primary Bill of the Administration
Slain by Wis. Senators.
HAGEMEISTER SUBSTITUTE GOES
Principle of the Measure Applies
Oul) to Counties- Great Rally
of the Force*.
Madison, Wis., April 12. —By a
majority of seven last evening the
senate killed Assemblyman Stevens'
primary election bill after a long
debate. The yoyo on concurrence on this
bill was 13 for and 20 against, as fol
lows:
Ayes—Anson, Burns, Fearne, Hatton,
Knudson, McGillivray, Martin, Miller,
Mills, Munson, Stebbins, Stout, Wolff—l3.
Kays—Bissel, Devos, Eaton, Gaveney,
Green, Hagemeister, Harris, Jacobs, Jones,
Krentzer, McDonough, Morse, Mosher,
O'Neil, Reynolds, Riordan, Roehr, Weed,
Whitehead, Willy—2o.
The vote then fell upon the substitute
to the Stevens bill, which is known as the
Hagemeister substitute, making the prin
ciple apply only to counties and excluding
judicial elections. An amendment to this
was adopted, to apply the referendum to
it so that counties can vote upon the bill
at the election in 1902. This was adopted
by 19 to 14.
On the vote for final passage of the
amended substitute, the roll showed 19 for
and 14 against, being practically a reversal
of the first vote, recorded above, except
that Mills voted aye and Jones and Jacobs
went on record against the proposition
to apply to counties alone.
Before this vote was taken several
amendments were offered in the hope of
meeting objections, but all were defeated,
both sides remaining solid. Senator White
head's speech closing the debate for tha
stalwarts was by far the beet speech of
the entire discussion.
Senator McGillivray made the closing
and most pretensious speech favoring the
bill, but presented no new arguments. He
laid great emphasis upon the binding force
of party pledges.
The assembly ordered Roe's bill, placing
all drinks containing 1 per cent or over
of alcohol in the class of intoxicating
liquors, to the third reading to-day after
a sharp fight. The vote was 53 to 36. This
bill is intended to protect no license towns
from so-called "strong beers."
Aswembly Will Not Concur.
The Hagemeister substitute primary
election bill was passed by the senate last
night, applying the primary system to
county officers only and then with the ref
erendum, did not reach the assembly for
concurrence to-day, not being engrossed. |
When it does it will probably go to a .
committee and another effort for com- |
promise will be made. The assembly will j
not concur in the bill as passed by the
senate.
With seventy-six bills on the calendar |<
the assembly spent nearly four hours to- |'
day wrAtling with two. The Cody bill, I \
declaring marriage between whites and I,
negroes illegal, was killed after much 1
discussion, and then the osteopathy bill j
was taken up. After repeated amendments ! \
and roll calls and attempts at a call of : 1
the house, the bill was finally laid over to I"
Wednesday. '!
Both houses adjourned to Monday night. ]
