CONDUCTORS' OUTINGS
Down the • Mississippi Yesterday—
The St. Croix: Sunday.
The last pleasure trip of the conductors'
convention in St. Paul was that which
started down the- Mississippi yesterday
on the steamer Columbia. The boat will

FEAR HEALTH OFFICERS
Persons Having; Contagious Diseases
Are Aery Deceitful.
With some people in Minneapolis a
health department official is a veritable
bogey man. If taken down with some dis
ease that promises to invite a visit from
the health department man and result in
quarantine, they get a bad case of the
rattles. Health Commissioner Hall was
directed to a house in south Minneapolis
last weeek where it was said there was
a case of smallpox. • Xo one answered his
ring. But the door was open and he went
in, grouped around and found a man lying
on a cot in one of the lower rooms. His
face was broken out and it was a clear
case of smallpox. The man said he had
not been- out of the house for several
days. Dr. Hall then inquired of people
living upstairs and learned that he had
been coming and going every day. When
he went back to see the sick man, the cot
■was empty. The medical man moused all
over the house, seeking his man and final
ly found him hidden in a closet. He is
bow doing time at the quarantine station.
Just as stone and bronze have given
place to iron, so shall iron give place to
aluminum.

SOME COPS MUST GO
Mayor Ames to Weed Out the
"Force".
TEN TO FIFTEEN ARE DOOMED
Some Deputy SherlffM to Succeed
Them—Conjectured That t apt.
Kiim I» tv HeNiRU.
Mayor Ames will swing his snickersnee
on June 1 to the complete undoing of ten,
twelve, possibly fifteen patrolmen.
His honor has decided to behead that
number of his police appointees for the
reason that they are "no good," to quote
the mayoral language. These decapi
tated individuals will come from no par
ticular quarter of the city, but will rep
resent the bad ones discovered by the
mayor, his brother, his captains and his
plain-clothes boys.
Mayor Ames" intention to shake up the
department was outlined in yesterday's
Jour na F, but at that time the uumber
of guillotine victims was not known. It
is now settled that at least ten of "the
finest" will be dropped all of a sudden
on the first of the month.
Independent <>i the Q. J.
The odd feature about the business Is
that the marked men have nothing in
common with grand jury recommenda
tions. The grand jury may make what
ever report it pleases, the mayor will pay
no attention to it. so far as firing police
men is concerned. In fact, the surest
way for that body to endear an officer to
the heart of the mayor is to say hard
things about ■him, —so say-those near tire
throne. The mayor has declared that the
grand jury has no case, and that as no in
dictments will follow from their delib
erations, he will ignore any large, juicy
roasts that may be handed to his officials
in the department.
A friend of the mayor said to-day that
the doctor was determined to "gang his
am gait," no matter what the grand jury
said or did.
"The mayor is provoked at the idea
that anybody can influence him in the
least," said the friend in question. "He
proposes to build up his machine in Ms
own way, and regards himself as a man
of destiny."
It is understood that some of the men
who are to walk the plank have been
drinking too much lately and that the
others have been discovered to be rankly
incompetent to hold their jobs.
SHERIFFS BECOME POLICEMEN
The Mayor Taken Care of Some of
Mefcaarilen'H Surplus Meu.
With political reinforcement in view, as
isonie believe. Mayor Ames is turning
; deputy sheriffs into policemen. Deputy
John Wall was the first secured, but not
until he had been promised a lieutenancy
j upon the police force and a nice easy snap
in the municipal court. Wall has been a
deputy sheriff for ten years and is a good
man. The other three men due to don
police uniforms are Percy DeLaittre, John
Schutta and George W. Brundage. They
are given promises of sergeantcies and
pay superior to that they were receiving
under Megaarden. All are to take their
new positions June 1.
After the announcement relating to
these new acquisitions the mayor is said
to have gone somewhat Into detail with
his personal friends in discussing the
meaning of his new departure and he per
mitted himself to say that before he got
through he would make Megaarden sorry
that he had ever crossed the path of the
city's chief executive. . Tha mayor, it is
said, thinks that his present move will
result in additional political strength for
himself and a corresponding weakness on
the part of his enemies, but it is learned
that complications in the sheriff's office
which had heretofore arisen had as much
to do with the resignations of the four
men in question as the temptations held
out by the city administration.
Sheriff Had to Economize.
The office of sheriff has not been on a
fat paying basis for some time past, and
some time ago. by order of the district
judges, several deputies employed in court
work were dispensed with. In addition to
this certain fees which have customarily
been the perquisite of the sheriff's of
fice, have been cut off entirely and Mr.
Megaarden was compelled to make the
announcement that at the close of the
present term of court it would be neces
sary for him to let out a number of as
sistants. He gave the men timely warn
ing and told them they had better look up
new situations, inasmuch as there would
be nothing doing at the sheriff's office be
fore the fall term of court.
Sheriff Megaarden was not in the city
yesterday, and is still out of the city and
could not be seen, but at the office it was
learned that there is no personal feeling
between him and the deputies who have
been notified of their release. In fact,
it is asserted that the sheriff is glad to
know that the mayor has been able to
pick up some good material to use in
bracing up his police force.
The deputies who are leaving all speak
in the most cordial manner of Sheriff
Mejaarden and only seem to regret the
necessity which compels them to part com
pany.
THE TRICE CONJECTURE
The Gossips Think Mayor and Grand
Jury Understand Each Other.
Some of the gossips say that a truce
has been patched up between the grand
jury, on the one side, and the mayor or.
the other, and that the result will be, as
stated in The Journal yesterday,
that no indictments are to be returned
against any police official, though the re
port of the jury will be strongly condem
natory of the practices which have been
allowed under the administration of Dr.
Ames.
A gentleman who takes great interest
in the investigation of the city's police
department, expresses the idea about as
follows:
It looks to me as though the investigation
■would ultimately result in the resignation
from the police force of Captain King, for
one, and possibly one or two others who
have frought Mayor Ames into much of the
trouble whicn now besets him. The grand
jury has i ndoubtedly procured a great deal
of information of practices which, to say the
least, are questionable, but it is doubtful if
the evidence at hand is conclusive enough
to warrant a conviction after indictment.
While the jury wtuld ordinarily feel impelled
to return indictment, even with the informa
tion at hand, it appears to me that an under
standing has been reached in regard to this
matter and that the mayor has agreed to dis
pense with two or three of the chief offenders
and that in return the grand jury will let the
administration off with a roast. In fact, it
is my belief that the sensation which the
city hall jrowd has promised to occur about
the first of the month will be the retirement
of Captain King from the police force and the
substitution of the deputy sheriffs. The
latter have been engaged, in my opinion, to
fill the \aeancies which will thus be created.
Certainly some of the present police force
will have to go to make room for the new
appointees, as the full leg?] limit has been
reached long ago upon the police force.
MILWAUKEE'S MARKET
Chicago Can't Rob It of Its Place,
Says a Milwaukee Man.
Frank D. Hinckley of Milwaukee, chief
inspector of the Wisconsin grain depart
ment, was on 'change to-day, en route to
South Dakota. Mr. Hinckley says the
Milwaukee grain market, which has re
cently jumped into great prominence ow
ing to the exodus of Chicago traders to
Milwaukee, is fully maintaining its rec
ord. He says that even if the obnoxious
rules that drove the Chicago men out of
their own exchange are ultimately amend
ed, Milwaukee will maintain her present
position, at least in pert. The fact that
Illinois laws make it unlawful to trade
in privileges, while Wisconsin's laws per
mit such trading, is in favor of Wiscon
sin.

"MIXNEHAHA" TO BUILD ONE
It Will <o«t. With Site. *J5,500-
Colouial Style of Arch
itecture.
Mlnnehaha council No. 1160, Royal Ar
canum, is about to erect a flue lodge
building on Lake street upon a site to be.
determined. It will be within two blocks
of Nicollet, either east or west.
A. L. Dorr has prepared plans for Min
nehaha council under the direction of the
building committee, of which J. W. Fleu
is chairman. At the meeting of the coun
cil last week the committee was given
full power to go ahead. Enthusiastic
speeches were made and $1,500 was raised
on the spot. The building will be the
property of the -members of the Royal
Arcanum.
The plans call for a one-story building
60x110 feet, to stand upon a lot large
enough to give a lawn in front. The
building, with the site, will cost *12,500.
It will be of colonial style and 0 decided
improvement to the street. The lodge
building will be provided with all mod
ern improvements and the* paraphernalia
room will accommodate all the societies
which may decide to rent.
, The Knights of Pythias, No. 26, Junior
Order of American Mechanics, Grand
Army and other bodies which hold lodge
meetings on Lake street and Nlcollet will
seize this opportunity to obtain better
quarters. The floor will be suitable for
dances and the building will be sort of a
clubhouse.
The Masons are the only organization

VIGILANTES WERE OUT
UIIKT DAY FOR KEEGA.VS LAKE
Golden Valley Folk Organize to Pre
serve Order—Gilbert's Little
Discussion.
The Golden Valley Vigilantes formed
their first organized patrol of the Keegan |
lake district Sunday. All suapicious
looking characters were ordered to "move
on" and no rowdyism was tolerated. It j
had been well noised about that Golden
Valley had armed itself for protection
and there was a noticeable falling off in
the regular Sunday attendance at the lake.
One large party of men and women ar
rived at Gilbert's saloon late in the after
noon. Noticing that theye were closely
watched by the vigilantes, however, they
concluded that they must depart without
delay.
Saturday night J. B. Gilbert, the pro
prietor of a saloon in the neighborhood,
and a neighbor came to blows over the
story that recently appeared in The
Journal of the "doings" at the lake.
Gilbert, so it is said, got decidedly the
worst of the argument and is now in a
worse temper than ever. The citizens of
this peaceful suburb say that they will
"continue the patrol system until proper
protection is furnished them from a lawful
source.
A SHAKE-UP IS COMING
THE MAYOR GRINDING HIS AX
Rumors Afloat That Mayor Ames Has
Decided to Take Some
Good Advice.
Something is going to drop at police
headquarters. It is said that within the
course of a few days there will be a gen
eral "shake-up." All sorts of rumors
are rife as to the officers that are to go
and the exposure that may ensue as a
resfrlt of their discharge.
The mayor, it is said, feels that he
must do something in view of the action
of the grand jury. Furthermore, it is
said, the mayor has taken some good ad
vice with regard to many of the men he
has given places. These, the mayor's
friends urge, must go, inasmuch as it is
generally known that they are responsible
for much of the odium that the adminis
tration has been forced to bear for months
past. '
MASONS IN CONTROL
Stock in Masonic Temple Passes In-
to Their Hands.
By the end of this week the Masonic
lodges of the city will practically have
control of the Masonic Temple. A large
'block of 3,150 shares in the association,
owned by one person, was offered for sale,
and all but 150 have been taken. Two
more lodges will vote this week on the
question of taking the rest of the block.
This means about $80,000 in actual value.
This puts about four-sevenths of the en
tire original issue of 7,516, or $188,000
worth, in the hands of the lodges. The
remaining shares are owned by individ
ual Masons.
The control of the building and ground
will remain vested in a board of directors.
Secretary Myers says that the Temple
office space is practically all rented and
that the affairs of the association are in
fine shape.
A SPLENDID OFFER
Dr. Mitchell Receives a Call From a
Denver Church,
Rev. Dr. Charles Bayard Mitchell of the
Hennepin Avenue Methodist church, who
has just accepted, an offer to become pas
tor of the First church at Cleveland, Ohio,
this morning received a call from Trinity
Methodist church of Denver to Bucceed Dr.
C. M. Coburn, who has completed five
years' service in that pulpit. This call
is very complimentary to the standing of
Dr. Mitchell in his denomination, as this
is one of the wealthiest Methodist
churches in the country. The building
cost several hundred thousand dollars,
and the organ was put in at an expense
of $25,000. Dr. Mclntyre, now of Chicago,
preceded Dr. Coburn in this pulpit.
Dr. Mitchell is willing to admit thai
iad he received this offer before he ac
cepted the Cleveland call he would have
given it very serious consideration. He is
highly pleased at this recognition of his
efforts in behalf of advancement of the
interests of his church and denomination.
$4,500 IS ASKED
Bids for Supervising Construction
of State Buildings.
The board of control has received bids
from several architects who are willing to
supervise the construction of state build-
Ings for the next three years for $4,500.
Bids will be opened Wednesday, though
this is the final day for their submission.
Chairman LeaviU is now at Red Wing,,
investigating the needs of the state train
ing school. Within a few weeks the board
will take action on the location of the
girls'. school. All the cities which have
made applications for the building will
be visited. These are Red Wing, Kenyon,
Crookston, Pine City, Wabasha and Lake
City.
TO SUPREME COURT
Habeas Corpus Proceedings Will
Take the La Plant Boys There.
The noted habeas corups proceedings
for the possession of Freddie and Willie
La Plant have been appealed to the su
preme court by John J. McHale appear
ing for John Chadwick, the legal guar
dian, and the executor of the will of the
father of the boys. By a law passed in
1895, habeas corpus proceedings may be
appealed directly to the supreme court
without moving for a new trial or going
through some other formality. Several
important legal questions have been
raised in this case, and attorneys will
watch it with interest. The boys were
left in the care of Mr. Chadwick by their
father, who aUo left some property which
should be managed so as to pay for their
care. Mrs. Alvena A. Dunham, paternal
grandmother to the boys, abducted them
and in the habeas corpus proceedings In
stituted by Mr. Chadwick, Judge Brooks
awarded her the custody of her two grand
sons- |
NO POLICE INDICTMENTS
4iRA\D Jl R\ WILL SIMPLY SCOLD
_- ■ -
It la Preparing a Caustic Report—
Could Not Get the Bent
Kvldenre.
According to information which crept
out yesterday there is reason to sup
pose that the grand jury will return no
Indictments against officials of the police
department, notwithstanding the length
and carefulness of the investigation which
has been in progress.
It is said that many officials will be
roundly scored in the report which the
jury will hand in late this week. The
report is now in course of preparation
and will be as caustic an arraignment of
the officials of the city government as has
ever been heard in this section of the
country. Evidence has been profusely
tendered the jury regarding police irregu
larities, but not in such a manner that it
seemed possible to convict the guilty ones.
Enough has been shown, however, to
give the jury ample reason to denounce
existing conditions and in doing so people
and things will be called by their right
names.
In the case of Captain Norman W. King
in which Walter Christeuson complained
of a brutal assault committed at the cen
tral police station, the jury listened with
interest and will include a resume of that
Incident in its report. The offense com
plained of is not indictable, and there
fore Captain King has nothing to fear
from that particular source. Christen
son's only recourse, conceding the truth
of his story, is through the medium of
a civil action in the courts.
The grand jury will meet again Wednes
day morning and will then probably get
down to the consideration of its report in
the matter of the investigation of local
evils. It is believed that the jury has
practically completed its work and that
F. A. Briggs will be about the only victim
offered up to sacrifice in order to pro
pitiate public sentiment in favor of clean
methods and clean government.
The houses of ill fame are again run
ning, but in a cautious manner, and great
care is taken to admit only persons who
are known to be friendly and not con
nected with the sheriff's office or the
county government. The furnished room
establishments are operated in the same
way, though they have less fear of the
officers of the law than have the keepers
of the regularly licensed houses.
SENTENCED AND EXECUTED
Miss Lu)iuun\ Duk I.co In Put to
Death.
Miss Myrta Layman, a former Minne
apolis school teacher, appeared before
Judge Dickinson yesterday to answer
to the charge of keeping a vicious dog.
A little barefooted boy named Hanson, who
lives next door to Miss Layman, 110 Nine
teenth avenue N, was the complaining
witness. Numerous neighbors who had
had trouble with' "Leo" were also pres
ent.
"Do you keep a vicious dog?" sternly
questioned the court, as Miss Layman
took the stand.
"No, I don't, I keep an intelligent dog,
and he knows whom to bite, too," was
the tart reply.
But the testimony showed that Miss
Layman left the matter of biting to the
dog's discretion. Consequently Judge
Dickinson sentenced the noble Leo to be
shot until dead.
Late this afternoon Captatn Fitchette,
of the municipal rourt, stated that, thanks
to the unerring aim of an officer of the
municipal court detail, Leo was no more.

Anniversary Yesterday.
Rev. James David Burrell yesterday cele

torate of the Marble Collegiate Reformed
church in New 1 York city. The sermons
and general program of the day were in
harmony with the anniversary idea. Sev
eral evenings of this week will be given
up to a continuation of the celebration.
Rev. Dr. Burrell went to the Collegiate

NEW SAFETY SWITCH
Successful Tests of the »w Besser-
Duim Device.
Exhaustive and successful tests were
made of the Besser-Dunn safety split
switch Saturday afternoon in the St. Paul
union depot yards in the presence of
nearly 500 railway men, among whom
were included quite a number of visiting
conductors. The device i 9 an ingenious
one, and is said to insure to travelers and
trainmen a greater chance of safety
than any other style of switch. Tests
were made with an Omaha engine and
four coaches. The first was at a fifteen
mile rate of speed; the second while run
ning twenty-five miles an hour, and the
third while running very slowly. Still
another test was made at a speed of thirty
miles. At the time of the tests there
was no connection between the stand and
the points, the connecting rod being re
moved and the points left loose and free.
Got What Tfcey Wanted.
The committee which went to Chicago to
get a one-fare round-trip rate from the
Western Pas3enger Association for the Chris
tian church convention has returned well
pleased. The convention will be held O.Jt.
8-18 and tickets will be good until Oct. 19.
The time limit may be extended on applica
tion until Oct. 31. The committee believe
that this low rate will bring many thousands
of people to Minneapolis.
Why the Woodmen Failed.
Local railway officials say that the real
reason why the Woodmen were unable to
secure better rates from the railways was
because of the inefficiency of the committee
appointed from the order to look after that
question.
It 13 said that the committee waited until
a late date and then sent in a communica
tion asking why the roads had not opened
communication with them upon the subject
as soon is the facts regarding the conven
tion had appeared in print. The committee
evidently labored unler the impression that
the railwcy officials were the ones to do the
running.
As matters now stand the Western Pas
senger association hn'j granted a one-fare
rate, but good only on trains coming Into
Minneapolis aud St. Paul Jun-j IS and 14,
and good to leave only until June 15. A
straight 1 cent a mile fare is granted to
bands in uniform.

SCORCHER'S BAD WORK
LITTLE I'KVHSJ: BOY DISFIGURED
Son of Lieut, and Mrs. Roy Peatie
-I'heekn Badly Torn by
Pedal.
Owing to the reckless, rough riding of
a cowardly scorcher, Richard Henry
Pearse, the 3-year-old son of Lieutenant
and Mrs. Roy Pearse, 623 E Fourteenth
street, was yesterday seriously injured
and disfigured for life. The child was
playing in the street in front of the resi
dence when struck down by an unknown
wheelman, riding at a break-neck pace,
his thick head well between his handle
bars and his wildly staring eyes fixed with
a fatal fascination upon his rapidly re
volving rim. The boy was knocked down \
and as the wheel passed over him the
pedal caught him in the mouth and tore
the cheek half way to the ear.
The fellow was thrown from hi 3 wheel j
by the collision. There was a touch of j
shame in him for the moment for he
stayed long enough to pick the child up
and stand him ou his feet. Then he
mounted his wheel and sped away before
any one in the neighborhood had time to
realize what had happened. The boy was
half conscious and weak from loss of
blood when carried into the house by his
distracted mother. It was necessary to
take twelve stitches in his face.
The police have been notified and if
the scorcher is located a stern example
will be made of him. He woTe a black
derby hat and black coat, but a more de
tailed description is lacking. Mr. Pearse
was a lieutenant in the Thirteenth Min
nesota regiment.
HIS SWEETHEARFSIvATCH
Frank Hudaon Pawned It and Is
Now in Jail.
Special to The Journal.
Red Wing, Minn., May 21.—Frank Hud
son, a barber, formerly employed here,
but for a year a resident of Rochester,
yesterday began a sentence of thirty days
in the county jail here. He had been
keeping company with a Red Wing young
woman who allowed him to wear her
watch for a short time as a token of
friendship. One day when Hudson was
broke and needed money, he pawned the
girl's watch and has since been unable
to save enough money to get it out. She
wrote him asking that the watch be re
turned, and later swore out a warrant for
his arrest. Hudson scented danger, and
left Rochester for Pine Island. His
whereabouts were, however, discovered,
and Sheriff Lundquist brought him to this
city Saturday. The young woman was
compelled to purchase the pawn coupon
to regain her watch.

The panic on 'Change shows the danger in speculation. But
there is risk in all business. No one cna accomplish anything
who will take no chances, and no amount of ability or care or
prudence will avoid serious mistakes and heavy losses. The
only prudent course is for every' business man to assume that
he may fail, and provide as -well as he can for his security and
recovery when losses come.
TLere is no other security for this purpose which equals an
endowment policy in a reliable life insurance company. If
doath comes your family and estate will be secure, and if you
meet reverses and failures before detah the value of your policy
will be clear gain.
The old STATE MUTUAL LIFE ASSURANCE COMPANY OP
WORCESTER, MASS., offers an unsurpassed policy for this pur
pose. It is practically an endowment policy every year on ac
count cf the high yearly cash values. Exact age and address to
either of the undersigned will secure a specimen policy with full
particulars. C. W. VAN TUYL,
