The authorities have not been able to

brother-in-law, Frank Greipel, at the lat

night. Shortly after 10 o'clock that night
Mingers visited William Borner of Lilly
dale. Mingers asked for the loan of a
boat to cross the river, but Borner had
none and so Mingers left, after telling
Borner that he had murdered Greipel.
It was also reported that Mingers had
been seen at Hamilton and other small
towns, and the police are hot on his trail.

AN AUGSBURG FUSS
Free Church Members Are Beeom
, ing Restive.
TAXATION; NO REPRESENTATION
Conference, at WUlniar May A«U
Angnbarg Corporation to Con-'
cede It Certain Privileges.
A change in the management of Augs
burg seminary may be arranged at the
conference of the Norwegian Free church
which opens at Willmar on June 5. The
matter is still is a very nebulous state
as far as any definite plan is concerned,
but it Is generally conceded both at Augs
burg and within the church, that some
thing must be done soon. The seminary,
although supported by the Free church. Is
really a separate organization, is incor
porated and as a matter >of fact Is as
wholly independent of the Free church
as any of the other educational institu
tions located within the twin cities. It
was this fact that it had an independent
existence which enabled the Augsburg cor
poration to prevent the United Norwegian
Lutheran church from gaining control of
the seminary which it had supported. The
Augsburg faction in that struggle later be
came the Norwegian Free church. All was
to be plain sailing for the seminary, how
ever, for recently a sort of a coldness or
indifferentce to the institution has
shown itself among the members
of the church. This has been manifested
by the few contributions from various
parts of the country for the new building
which Augsburg proposes to erect.
Cause of the (oolnenn.
While very little has been eald, it has
dawned on the leading members of the
church that the people who contribute the
money—blood and sinews—of the institu
tion are wholly ignored in the manage
ment of the school, the selection of teach
ers and other important matters. While
loyal to Augsburg, and willing to share
their last with the school, the laymen
feel as if they should have some voice
in its management and their paetors,
ever more loyal, have similar feelings.
The situation is said to create much
amusement among the members of the
United Norwegian Lutheran church.
It is believed that the Free church will
request the Augsburg corporation to con
sent to the appointment of a board of
visitors, representing the church, to have
some sort of a supervision over the in
stitution. The church may also ask that
it be allowed to choose the teachers or at
least the members of the theological fac
ulty. Once that is done, the way has been
opened, the Free .church may ask for
other privileges, but as already stated,
there is no definite program as yet.
TAR AND FEATHERS
They Await a Certain Lake of the
Isles Prowler.
Residents in the neighborhood of Frank
lin avenue and Lake of the Isles boule
vard are anxious to get their hands upon
a brute in human form who for some time
past has been making himself obnoxious
in that vicinity. The person complained
of is a middle-aged man, wearing the
overall garb of a laboring man and a
slouch hat. He has made a practice at
irregular intervals of hiding himself in
the clumps of willows which border the
boulevard at that point, and when women
and children pass that way he makes an
indecent exhibition of himself.
The residents thereabouts say they do
not wish the services of police. If they
can they wish to capture the brute them
selves and they promise that whenever
he is brought to book he will never again
wish to show his head in Minneapolis.
Similar complaints came in from the
same neighborhood a year ago, and
though every effort was made to catch the
scoundrel he managed to get away with
out the punishment he so richly merits.

INCREASE IN ACREAGE
Farmers Are Putting in More Wheat
and Corn.
Grain men generally are of the opinion
that there is an increased acreage of
wheat, corn and flax in the northwest
this year and that the acreage of oats
and other grains is about the same as last
year. Secretary G. D. Rogers of the
chamber of commerce believes that the
total Increase will be 10 per cent, one
half of which will be wheat and the other
5 per cent corn and flax. There will be
an increaes in corn acreage in both of
the Dakotas and in northern Minnesota.
The high price of flax in the past year
causes the increase in that grain. It was
a money-maker for the northwestern
farmer.
JOINT CAR INSPECTION
Ttvln City Car Foremen Will Inves
tigate Its Merits.
At a well-attended meeting of the Twin
City Car Foremen's and Inspectors' asso
ciation, held at the Minnesota Transfer,
Saturday evening, a number of timely
subjects received consideration. One of
the most important was a sy3tem of Joint
inspection of cars, similar to that ob- I
taining in other railroad centers. Presi- ]
dent Goehrs appointed a commmittee to j
collect data relative to this inspection j
system, especially with a view to ascer
taining its value in facilitating the move
ment of cars, cost of maintenance, etc.
It will report at the next meeting.

Plowing: by Elephant.
A farmer in "West Virginia has an ele
phant to do his plowing. He finds that
the animal eats little more than a horse
and does many times the work and is
gentle and docile, so that the owner is
well pleased with the experiment. Peo
ple are always trying to learn how to get
the most work out of their animals with
the smallest amount of feed, but they
never think of trying the same experi
ment on -themselves. If you want to get
a lot of strength from a small quantity of
food, drink "Golden Grain Belt" b«er, for
it contains the strength of bread and
meat. It is brewed from the purest bar
ley malt and hops, making an ideal drink
for summer. Telephone 486 Main and

will come over to "The Brewery." we will
gladly show you how it Is brewed.

SCORES OF THOUSANDS
Ml I.TITI"DKS OK WOODMEN COMING
Estimated That the Head Camp "Will
Brinic Out a Hundred
Thousand. .
There are several good reasons for be
lieving that the announcement that the
Woodman Head Gamp at St. Paul, week of
June 10, will draw one hundred thousand
visitors to the twin cities is not a bit
of imagination. At Kansas City two
years ago the railroads brought in 67,000
during the rainy week. Since then there
have been over 200.000 admissions to the
order which now has a total membership
of 630,000 scattered among thirty-two
states. Better railroad rates are offered,
and the enthusiasm Is greater owing to
the fact that this year the uniformed de
gree teams of the order are to be en
camped by themselves under military
regulations and that their drill contests
will be more spirited than ever. They
will number 3,000 men, handsomely uni
formed, and will be accompauied by sev
enty-five bands.
Reports from the railroads and the
traveling agents of wholesale houses agree
that never before has there been a pros
pect of such large excursions to the twin
cities. Minnesota has 43,000 Woodmen;
lowa, 71,000; Wisconsin, 4'J.000; and the
Dakotas 25,000. So the immediate terri
tory can be relied upon to furnish quite a
crowd, especially as the railroads expect
to run da.ily excursions. But from as far
away as Oregon and Oklahoma, Indiana
and Michigan, special trains are coming.
Time to He Extended.
It is now planned to extend the conven
tion several days over the usual limit.
The officers of the head camp will be j
asked to arrive by Saturday, June 8. that
a banquet may be tendered them by the
■ St. Paul Commercial Club. Governor Van
Sant, Senator Clapp, the mayors of the
twin cities, Dar Reese, J. Adam Bede, and
H. P. Hall are to be among those se
lected to respond to toasts. The adjourn
ment Wednesday of the convention so the
delegates can take a trolley ride to Min
neapolis and lunch at Minnehaha makes It
certain that it cannot conclude its labors
before Saturday afternoon, so the head
camp officers will be asked to remain over
Sunday and attend the anniversary me
morial exercises of the order.
Thursday after the great parade in the
morning, it has been arranged to have a
number of drill and band contests at the
fair ground in addition to a program of
automobile races and sports. A picnic at
Lake Minnetonka Friday afternoon is an
other event that will be popular. There
will be no lack of other features to en
tertain the visitors. Among them is a
ball at the Auditorium. •
St. Paul will be decorated as never be
fore in Its history, and the Woodman col
ors and emblems admit of many striking
effects. Minneapolis Woodmen and For
ester teams will participate in all the
leading events and the convention week
promises to be a twin ity affair, almost.

at which he was guest of honor, admitted
If he were not in office he might be
tempted to go after the political scalp of

I which will be forwarded to Buffalo for com
petition at the exposition. Those who cannot
send their Buffalo exhibit to St. Paul in a
refrigerator oar are requested to send it to
La Crosse, and it will be forwarded from that
point.
HAPPY EMIGRANTS.
San Juan de Porto Rico, May 21.—Nine
hundred emigrants embarked on the steamer
Californlan at Guainca for Hawaii to-day,
leaving 400 more ready to sail. Joyous mani
festations accompanied the departure of the
emigrants. Fourteen weddings and forty
eight baptisms took place Sunday. The mi
gration agents are spending, It is estimated,
about $10,000 In recruiting and maintaining
the emigrants. Favorable reports from Ha
waii have caused a continuation of the emi
gration.
TENT WORK IN ST. PAUL.
After an adress on "City Evangelization"
by Bishop Joyce of Minneapolis, the Metho
dist Ministers' Association of St. Paul decided
to take up summer tent work during the
twelve weeks of warm weather. The meet
ings will be held in different parts of the
city for ten days at a time. Rev. John Elliott
of New York addressed the Minneapolis min
isters at length on this subject at the union
meeting held three we*>ks ago, but plans have
not been formed for the work in Minneapolis.

EXCHANGE FAVORS
Business Men Insist on an Under
standing With the "Omaha."
THE MERRIAM JUNCTION CUT-OFF
Hood Mont U»e It for Pa»»enger
Service If Street Vacation*
Are Granted.
\MINNCAPO4i 9 r"V£rpfWl.
This map shows the route now taken by
Omaha passenger trains through Merriam
Junction and St. Paul before arriving in
Minneapolis. Omaha freight takes the j
Minneapolis & St. Louis short cut to and
from the Junction. Minneapolis business
men will ask the Omaha for the same di
rect passenger service from the Junction
as the road recognizes to be necessary in
handling its freight trafhc.
Tiie distance from Merriam Junction to
Minneapolis via St. Paul is forty-four
miles.
The direct line is but twenty-seven.
A direct line service from the Junction
would be an advantage to the business
men of Minneapolis in that it would give |
those coming to this city to spend the day |
nearly an hour and a half more time. It
would also remove the discrimination in
favor of St. Paul on trains from the south
west, which naturally follows from trains
pulling into St. Paul first.
The Omaha has a ninety-nine year lease
of the use of the Minneapolis & St. Louis
to Merriam Junction.
Minneapolis shippers feel that on ac
count of the vast amount of business
which Minneapolis gives the railroads
the city is entitled to better passenger
service that it has been receiving. A
prominent railway official who visited this
city recently said that the agricultural
Implement traffic alone from this city ex
ceeded the combined merchandise traffic
out of St. Paul, that there was no com
parison to be made between freight re
ceipts from Minneapolis and those from
St. Paul.
Those Street Vacations.
There is no disposition among the busi
ness men of the city, and especially the
shippers to support the request of the
Omaha for the vacation of a large num
ber of stub streets and alleys in the
northern part of the city. The next meet
ing of the city council will have the Oma
ha's request up for consideration, but no
delegations of business men have been
named to help the matter along, as was
the case with the Wisconsin Central ordi
nance. Business men generally say that
the city has something coming from the
Omaha instead of making it a free gift of
the streets and alleys wanted. The de
mand for a better passenger service for
Minneapolis over the Omaha lines is
something which the shippers are making
a decided stand for and on the attitude of
the Omaha in this particular depends the
amount of support which business men
will give its request now before the
council.
SOPHS VICTORIOUS
They Win the Peavej Prize Debate

The work done in the Peavey prize con

was a credit to the rhetorical department.
Although the sympathy of the audience
was not altogether with the decision of
the judges in either of the contests, there
can be no question as to the quality of the
work. Three members, each from the
freshman and sophomore classes, debated
the question: "Resolved, That United
States senators should be elected by di
rect vote of the people." The decision of
the judges was two to one in favor of
the sophomores, who upheld the negative.
It was anybody's debate until the rebut
tal, where the sophomores showed up
strongest. The best work for* the fresh
men was done by Mr. Choate; for the
sophomores, by Messrs. Drake and Ladd.
Messrs. Hammond and Schwartz also did
some skillful work for the freshmen, but
fell down in rebuttal. In the oratorical
contest between Mr. Lane, sophomore,
and Mr. McGrath. freshman, the judges
preferred the somewhat crude zeal of the
sophomore to the more intelligent com
position and the more elegant and con
vincing delivery of the freshman. Men
tion should be made of the excellent
Shakspere reading by members of the
freshman class, which added to the in
terest of the entertainment.

ITS SEMICENTENNIAL
Catholics to Celebrate Establish
ment Of First Cliurvli in St. Paul.
The fiftieth anniversary of the estab
lishment of the first Catholic church in
St. Paul seminary, owing to the fact that
brated in that city July 2 and 3. The ex
ercises will be held on the grounds of the
St. Paul seminary owing to the fact that
the cathedral is not large enough, and
will be public. The morning will be de
voted to the jubilee sermon by Arch
bishop Ireland and the celebration of high
mass by Bishop Cotter of Winona. In the
afternoon the laying of the corner stone
of the new chapel at the seminary will
take place. A large parade will be held
the second day, terminating at the audi
torium, where a program of music and
speeches will be given.
The diocese of St. Paul now includes
twenty-three parishes. A few members
of the church who welcomed Father Cre
tin fifty years ago on his first visit to St.
Paul are still residents of the city.
