BEATEN AT TENNIS
lowa Players Succumb to Those of
Minnesota.
THREE SETS AT DOUBLES PLAYED
D. H. Ellis and C. H. Mather Repre
sented lowa—J. <-'• Wyman and
James Lawrence, Minn.
Minnesota "U" won the tenins tourna
ment with the University of lowa this
morning. Three sets at doubles were
played, the gophers winning two of them.
lowa was represented by D. H. Ellis and
C. H. Mather, who have played in all of
lowa's doubles with other schools this
year. Their most decisive victory was
over Cornell college, lowa. Ellis has been
considered one of the best college men in
the west at singles. He recently won
from Drake.
J. Claire Wynian and James Lawrence
were Minnesota"s men. The match was
warmly contested. In the first set Min
nesota seemed surprisingly weak and there
were many-poor plays. It seemed that
lowa was playing in much better form. In
the second and third sets, however, Law
rence and Wyman warmed up and played
a remarkably fast and close game. The
lowa men expressed themselves as eur
prised at the form the Minnesota players
showed in the last part of the tournament.
They had plainly come to Minneapolis with
the expectation of winning. The scores
were 7-5, S-6.
A PROTEST FROM LABOR
BD. OF iOXTROL'S PRI.VMXU WORK
It Asks Bids From Outside the State
Which Is Apparently For
bidden by Lair.
Organized labor thinks It has a griev
ance against the stae board of control. In
sending out proposals for bids on the
blank books and other printing required
by the board, the board did not confine
their correspondence to Minnesota, but
sent proposals to Chicago and St. Louis.
Bids will doubtless be received from firms
in those cities.
If the contract should be let outside
the state, there would be a storm of pro
test from the labor unions. As it is, they
are displeased because outsiders have been
invited to bid.
There is nothing in the board of control
law directly limiting the printing of Min
nesoia. It only requires that in the pur
chase of all supplies the board shall favor
Minnesota bidders, other things being
equal. It appears, however, that the
board really has no right to advertise for
printing at all. The board of control act
provides that:
•The board shall, by the proper author
ities, be also furnished with all necessary
books, blanks, stationery, printing, post
age stamps and such other office supplies
as are necessary."
"The proper authorities" must mean
the state printing commission and its ex
ecutive agent, the state expert printer.
The law of 1897 requires that the state
printer "shall take charge of all the
printing and binding required to be done
j for the several departments of govern
meqt, to receive proper orders for the
same, and to have the same properly ex
ecuted according to law." The following
clause in the act creating a state print
ing commission is important:
"Provided, that all printing and binding
id to be let by.said commissioners within
ithe state of Minnesota."
It-is apparent from these two extracts
that a contract let outside the state could
! foe .set aside in the courts. It is not
'likely that the board will attempt to let
! the contract to an outsider. Members con
! tend that they have the right, however.
Chairman Leavitt said this morning: "It
jis true that the board has sent proposals
; outside the state of Minnesota. We be
j lieve that we have a right to let contracts
I anywhere in 'the United States, or in the
world, for that matter. Minnesota bid
ders will always be favored, however."

THE MINNEAPOLIS JOUKNAH
2 R. 1 PROPOSITIONS
Minneapolis Business Men Working
sv on Them..
OMAHA AND MILWAUKEE COS.
Short Line* on Omaha's Sioux City
Division and Milwaukee*..
New Extension Desired.
Minneapolis business men consider that
the Omaha road is discriminating- against
the city in its passenger, service.'-. They
will make an attempt to induce the offi
cials of the road to give the city better
service, especially from .the west and
the southwest. Trains over the" Omaha
from the southwestern part of the state
come to Minneapolis iby way of Merriam
Junction and #t. Paul. This is a round
about route, measuring ' Just forty-four
miles from the Junction to Minneapolis.
The direct line from the junction to this
city Is twenty-seven-miles," which-would
make a. saving in mileage to the Omaha
of seventeen miles, as well as a saving in
time to passengers bound for Minneapolis.
The fact that the Omaha trains pull into
St. Paul first means a disadvantage to
this city of eighty minutes on the return
trip, and that is something which affects
the merchants in no small degree. .
The sentiment among the retail mer
chants and the Jobbers is that Minneapolis
is being placed at too great a disadvan
tage by the Omaha's present program.
The fact that the Omaha uses the Minne
apofis & St. Louis short cut to Merriam
Junction in its freight service shows that
the Omaha officials appreciate- the value
.of a direct line. Minneapolis wants the
same quick service from the Omaha pas
senger department. Her shippers feel that
.they are entitled to it and will send a
committee to interview the officials.
As to the Milwaukee.
The Milwaukee road will be asked to
give this city a fair show In the con
struction or its Mankato line. The busi
ness men of Minneapolis want the exten
sion made by way of St. Peter, L* Sueur,
Henderson, and Benton Junction which
would bring Milwaukee trains into Minne
apolis over the Hastings and Dakota line,
and make very satisfactory service. This
is demanded by all of the business men
and shippers of Minneapolis. The plans
first given out were that the Milwaukee
would build from Mankato to Farming
ton, Le Sueur center and Mendota, which
would bring the trains into St. Paul first.
St. Paul already has the advantage with
the river division of the Milwaukee and
Minneapolis business interests insist on
being given a fair consideration in the
construction of this new line. Minne
apolis' wants better communication with
the towns in the Minnesota valley, and
many of those towns have asked for better
communication with Minneapolis. Presi
dent A. J. Earling of the Milwaukee while
in the city recently, was interviewed by a
delegation of business men. He said that
the route from Mankato had not been
definitely decided. Minneapolis gives the
Milwaukee a far greater amount of ton
nage than St. Paul.

'TONKA RIDER INJURED.
Excelsior, Minn.. May 17—George Williams
sustained a broken arm In a bicycle collision
.yesterday.
THEY VISITED 'HAHA
Conductors and Their Friends Take
a River Excursion.
BUSINESS ALLOWED TO "SLIDE"
The Ladle*' Auxiliary Cleaning IP
the Slate—Plan to Broaden
Insurance Keutureu.
All of the conductors and their wives
and friends who could crowd on the
steamer Lora this morning took the ride
up the river from St. Paul to Minnehaha
and found it one of great interest and
pleasure. The boat was loaded to the
legal limit and probably beyond but no
mishap occurred. Refreshments were
served by the- ladies of the Grand Interna
tional Auxiliary to the B. L. E. It was
impossible to accommodate all and so a
second trip was arranged for 2 o'clock.
What the conductors have done thus far
is not for the public to know, as the
grand division meetings are behind closed
doors. Neither are members supposed to
tell outsiders what they are considering.
Yesterday afternoon a proposed revision
of the bylaws relating to political discus
sions in the divisions was brought up but
nothing was done. Many of the delegates
feel that the O. R. C. should be interested
in labor legislation and should give sup
port to the party that is likely to render
the order the greatest service, but it is
unlikely that any changes will be made
for for the present.
Tin- Ladies Do Buslnem*.
Better time is made by the Ladies' Aux
iliary la its business sessions than by the
O. R. C. While the conductors have been
engaged up to the present chiefly in prac
ticing oratory, the Auxiliary has been dis
posing of important matters. The reports
of the grand president, Mrs. J. H. Moore
and the grand secretary-treasurer, Mrs.
E. Higgins, have been made. By these
It is shown that the auxiliary has a total
membership of 3,904 and that it has a bank
balance of $2,645.38 after spending $5,614.69
largely for benevolent purposes. The
auxiliary shows an increase of about 800
for the last biennial period. There are
107 accredited delegates In attendance.
Mrs. A. R. Honeycut, a delegate from
Texas, is doing some effective work in be
half of a revision of the insurance laws.
She cites the oases of several conductors
who are incapacitated for work by reason
of locomotor ataxia caused by the contant
jar to which they are subjected. These
conductors, she says, are as helpless as
those who have been incapacitated by ac
cident and her idea is that the Insurance
laws should be made more liberal. Mrs.
Honeycut is meeting with some success
but a considerable number of the delegates
have objections to changes in the present
laws.
Cumin"' to Minneapolis.
It is the intention of the ladies to come
to Minneapolis in a body to-morrow and
some changes in the program have become
necessary as it was originally provided
that the ladies should attend a degree
team exemplification in the morning. This
has been postponed until Saturday night.
Took I'ju-t In an Imitation.
The conductors who attended the meet
ing of Osman temple of the Nobles of the
Mystic Shrine had a pleasant evening.
They participated in the initiation of thir
ty-four candidates mostly from Minne
sota. With 100 conductors and 150 nobles
from Duluth, the St. Paul Shriners had
their hands full but carried the affair
through with much success. Governor
Van Sant was one of the speakers. Ad*
dresses were made also by Potentate A. P.
Swanstrom and M. J. Land of Birming
ham, Ala.
Joseph Heweon Archer of Cleveland di
vision No. 14, in point of continuous mem
bership in the order is the veteran of the
meeting. Twenty-vine years ago he joined
the conductors' brotherhood which was
succeeded by the O. R. C. He went to
his first grand division in 1876 and since
then has missed but two conventions
which he regrets as he would like to have
his record clear. As it is many of the
delegates envy him the record he has ob
tained.
From North and Sontli.
The meeting between C. F. Joslin of
Two Harbors, Minn., and A. F. Youngston
of Guadalajara, Mexico, was an interest
ing one. They say they hold the latitudin
al honors. F. B. Sears of Portland, Me.,
and A. B. Murray of San Francisco are
extremists also.
Badges are numerous and the Inevitable
collectors'are much in evidence. A Mis
souri delegate is wearing a badge in the
design of which figures a beer mug and a
Carrie Nation hatchet. He has only one,
however, and the ladies who are "just
dying" for the badge will be allowed^ to
expire. Numbers of unique cards are be
ing exchanged, for the "cons" are the
most fraternal fellows imaginable.
DIDX'T THROW AT TRAI.V
Buy* Deny G. V. Train Dombardment
—Several Arraignments.
Aaron Anderson, a tow-headed boy,
whose head scarcely reached the railing of
the clerk's desk, and Joseph Furstlund
were arraigned before Judge McGee yes
terday charged with throwing stones at
a Great Northern passenger train. They
pleaded not guilty, their trial being set
for the 29th inst. The boys were released
on their own recognizance.
Peter Hurd and Mike and John W. Hazel
were arraigned on the charge of assaulting
Olaf Johnson April 29 at Richfield. The
defendants are charged with shooting at
Johnson with intent to kill, the Indict
ment being for assault in the first degree.
The trio pleaded not guilty and their trial
was set for May 27, bail being fixed at
$500 each.
George W. Sebastian was arraigned on
an indictment charging non-support, the
complaint having been made by his wife,
Elizabeth, whom, it is said, is sick and in
need of the necessities of life. Sebastian,
who is a locomotive engineer, told Judge
McGee that he possessed no means what
ever, and that he had not been able to se
cure work since March. He pleaded not
guilty, and his case was set for May 29.
Bail was fixed at $250, in default of which
he was committed.
Price Wandered.
Among the witnesses sworn Wednesday
in the trial of John Reid, who is charged
with stealing a diamond stud from John S.
Hooper the night the rough riders left for
Washington, was Pawnbroker Inspector

WITH FIGHTING 808
Surgeon Crandall, Now Here, Was
at Santiago.
HAS MANY SOUVENIRS OF FIGHT
The Pathetic Gratitude of Admiral
Cervera-A Tribute to the
Spaniard*.
Surgeon R. Percy Ccandall, U. 8. N.,
■arrived yesterday from Washington,
and has taken up his quarters in the
United ■States district attorney's office,
where for three days he will examine ap
plicants 'for naval enlistment. Long ex
perience has made the surgeon very quick
at his work, and the time consumed in a
thorough examination of the anatomy of
a young man from "clothes off" to
"clothes on," is very brief.
Tke doctor, who is a native of New York,
was graduated from the University of
Pennsylvania and soon «fter entered the
navy* being assigned in June, 1897, to the
lowa as assistant surgeon. He was one
of the surgeons detailed to visit Havana
after the destruction of the Maine. July
3, 1898, Surgeon Crandall was at the naval
battle off Santiago. As it became evident
that Cevera's fleet was coming out of the
harbor, he hastened aloft to join "Fight
ing Bob" Evans on the bridge. Crandall
details the battle with great vividness.
In the course of his duty he amputated the
arm of a member of the Spanish admiral's
staff. His story of the deportment of
Overa during the trying times following
the destruction of hie ship and his recep
tion on board the lowa is thrilling.
Mr. Crandall carries some interesting
relioa with him. One of these is the log
of the Cristobal Colon up to the time of
the battle. Another is a card which the
admiral, touched by the zeal of Dr. Cran
dall for the welfare mt the Spaniards, gave
him. It bears th« admiral's autograph,
and these words: "I have no other sou
venir to offer, having lost all but my
honor."
Dr. Crandall saye of the wounded Span
iards who died on the Iowa: "They were
wrapped in the flag for which they had
fought, and were buried at sea with all
the honors of war. By order of Captain
Evans, three volleys w«re fired as the
bodies went over the side of the ship. All
of the men captured seemed happy and
glad that they had fallen into the hands
of the Americans. I knew a great many
of the officers and found them to be per
fect gentlemen."
DISTURBEDJjIS SLEEP
Slumbering: Patrolman la Irate Be
caate He Is Aroused.
Nearly all of the new patrolmen are
putting thPir applications on file these
lovely, warm, spring days for quarantine
duty at smallpox cases. There seems to
be no line of duty where a Minneapolis
patrolman gets quite so much repose as
on quarantine duty. Wednesday an officer
guarding a house near Minnehaha was
idly basking in the sunshine near the
front entrance. Far from the madding
crowd, h« was not disturbed by thoughts
of grand jury and the like. Soon he fell
into a peaceful sleep.
A rude passerby disturbed the minion
of the law. He was on his way to the
Falls, when he stopped to rest by the
side of the bicycle path. Two hundred
yarda away stood the cottage with Its
smallpox sign at both front and rear. On
the front doorstep, wrapped in the arms
of Morpheus, a patrolman lay stretched
out in his full six feet. The bright sun
shine glinted on his star. The stranger
approached and gently drew a straw
across the face of the sleeper. With a
bound he awoke.
No longer was the scene pastoral. The
calm gave way to gale, and the somno
lence to brimstone.
"Why, you — '■ . What do you mean
by waking me up?" said the Irate patrol
man with the star.
But the stranger only pointed to the
smallpox sign and went on his way.
TOO STRONG FOR HIM
Saloonkeeper Succumbs to a Wood
PoliHh.
J. J. McGregor, liquor dealer, 104 Hen
nepln avenue, arose with an awful thirst
yesterday. He at ones repaired to his
private bar and seizing a long-necked bot
tle, took a deep draught. That delicious
relaxation so wont to follow upon the
imbibing of a morning bracer did not ap
pear. Dismay overspread the features of
Mr. McGregor. A terrible thought to
which, he immediately gave voice, struck
him.
"I have been poisoned. Help! Help!
Quick to a doctor!" cried McGregor.
The drink that Mr. McGregor Imbibed
under the misapprehension that he was
partaking of fine old Scotch, was, in fact,
a mixture of carbolic acid and other
liquids, warranted to make a mahogany
bar shine like a mirror.
The poison was not of the deadliest na
ture, however, and in the afternoon Mr.
McGregor is resting easily.

OPTION ON A BUILDING
MINNEAPOLIS WOODMEN GET ONE
They Will Probably Buy the Build
ing at «iM-:i«> Hennepin
Avenue.
The Modern Woodmen of Minneapolis
have obtained an option on the building
at 624 and 626 Hennepin avenue for head
quarters. Stock in the building associa
tion is being sold to Woodmen only. Four
thousand dollars has already been sub
scribed, and such thorough arrangements
have been made for the sale of the bal
ance that the $3,000 necessary in order to
close the deal will be secured in two
weeks. The ground floor of the building
mentioned is at present occupied by a |
grocery and a laundry, which will not be |
disturbed. The other two floors will be
remodeled.
The headquarters will be undoubtedly
used by what are called the downtown
camps. For instance, the Flour City camp,
numbering 700 or 800, will be compelled to
use the large room on the thift: floor of
the building, while smaller camps may use
a smaller room on the second floor.
A large source of income to the associa
tion will be from rental of the camp halle.
There is a scarcity of such rooms in the
city and the addition of two such as the
building contains will be a boon to the
organizations which find it necessary to
rent tails for dances and such purposes.
In addition to thi6, there will be a great
saving in hall rentals.
This evening the venerable consuls of
the camps of Modern Woodmen, chief for
esters and various committees from the
Royal Neighbors, will meet on the tenth
floor of the Guaranty building to perfect
arrangements for the entertainment of the
delegates to the head camp in St. Paul
June 11. The delegates will be given a
trolley ride in the city and a supper at
Minnehaha Falls June 12, and on the 14th
the street parade of the Foresters attend
ing the meeting at St. Paul will be held.
All details will be settled this evening.
A FIFTY FOOT PLUNGE
TEAM AXD WAGOX TAKE IT
Garbage Man Was Illegally Damp
ins Refuse—Horses Xot Hurt
— Wu«oii Uninjured.
A garbage wagon with Its contents went
over the bluff at the foot of Two-and-a-
Half street Wednesday carrying the two
horses with it, and strange to say, the
whole outfit arrived at the bottom of the
precipice little the worse for the experi
ence and was soon jogging homeward.
There Is a descent at this point of fully
fifty feet, then a shelf and finally a drop of
ten feet more.
The garbage man had backed his team
up to unload when one of the horses grew
fractious and backed the wagon over the
brink. Over and over they rolled until
they reached the shelf fifty feet below.
Here the horses stopped while the wagon
continued on over the second fall. The
harness was torn to pieces and one of
the horses slightly lamed, but beyond that
the whole outfit was, after a few re
pairs, fit for service again.
Complaint has been made by residents
that irresponsible parties have been
dumping garbage at this point. Night be
fore last the health department kept a
man on watch the whole night through
and caught nobody.
Late yesterday afternoon when nobody
was watching a load of garbage appeared
on the scene with the above results. The
unfortunate garbage man was in too much
of a hurry to get away to stop to leave his
name.
HARD AT WORK"
Tax Commlmion Hear From Public
Service Corporation*.
The tax commission have settled down
to a steady grind of work in the office at
the capitol. They have received requests
from several public service corporations,
which desire to have hearings before the
commission.'
The members of the commission said
yesterday that they would remain In
continuous session at the capital, and
would be glad to arrange hearings with
any parsons desiring to appear.
RYDER HAS SUBSIDED.
St. Paul police officials were very leni
ent in their treatment of Senator J. J.
Ryder, who waa arrested for recklessly
discharging a pistol upon the crowded
streets of the capital city while drunk
Tuesday evening. Rydw was not brought
before th«? court. Hia case was entered
under the name of J. S. Elliott, and Judge
Orr continued it until May 22.
Late in the evening Ryder notified the

JOHN GOODNOI'S DEPUTY
ARTHIR H. WHITE IS HERE
Has Been Sick: for Tliree Months—
American* Stand Hlyh
in China.
A. H. White, deputy United States con
sul general at Shanghai, China, under
Consul General John Goodnow, arrived in
Minneapolis yesterday. Mr. White was
a resident of Minneapolis for several
years before his appointment to the
Shanghai post. For the past three months
he has been ill and under the care of the
doctor at Yokohama.
"Consul Goodnow called upon me on his
return to Shanghai," said Mr. White,
"while I was still in the hospital in Ja
pan. He expressed himself as much
pleased with the reception accorded him
by the citizens of Minneapolis. My ab
sence from China for three months makes
it impossible for me to say anything new
on the situation there. The recent trouble
in that country was full of trying mo
ments. America acquitted herself well,
and it is only fair to say that American
officials are in favor with the Chinese be
cause of the fairness they have shown.
In his district Mr. Goodnow has the re
spect and the good will of the Chinese au
thorities from the highest to the lowest
official. This is the result of absolute
fairness and justice in all of his acts and
close attention to business. One pecu
liar thing about the recent trouble was
that during it all, the exports of tea and
other commodities to the United States
increased. The Chinese merchant had the
stuff to sell and he kept it moving, war or
no war."
Mr. White will remain here a few days
and go on to vist his old home in New
York. He sails on his return trip July
9. He brings with him many interesting
relics some of which he is distributing
among old friends in Minneapolis.
