The First Step in the Hospital In
President of Board of Charities and
Corrections May Call a Spec
ial Meeting.
If the board of corrections and charities
should decree an investigation into city
hospital methods and management, the
Initiative will plainly have to come from
some one on the board other than Mayor
Ames. The mayor, as is told in another
place, does not- consider that any condi
tion exists there calling for any inter
ference on the part of the board, and it
Is very improbable that he . Will counte
nance any movement for an investiga
tion ■ A suggestion from the mayor, as
the dominant personality on the board
and., after the reorganization in July in
practical control of its affairs, would no
doubt do the business. Otherwise the only
course left open would be for President
Moore of the board to direct the secre
tary to call a special meeting for con
sideration of the question of an investiga
tion. If President Moore did not act,
then two or three of the board, acting
together, could call a meeting.
President Moore is out of town to-day
and could not be seen in the matter. It
is well known that he has not been satis
lied for a long time with the way things I
were going at the city hospital, but under
the conditions existing on the board .he
has not felt that it would be advisable
for him to take the initiative in a move
ment for reform. In the present situa
tion it ie thought that he will not act
officially unless expresssly requested to
do so by Doctors Byrnes and Clarke, or
in the event of a demand for an Investi
gation from some other source.

Mr. Rinehart intimates that after the com

in a position to strike out a little more i
freely In board matters than he has up to

one having charges to make against the
administration demands it. It is too late j
probably to take any action looking to the :

It Proves Nothing — Real Criminal*
Don't Get to the City
Mayor Ames has used the situation at
the workhouse frequently of late to dem
onstrate that crime is et low ebb in
the city under his regime and the crim
inal population far below the normal
number. The facts as to the workhouse
are that it contains only about one-half
of the usual number of inmates for this
time of the year. Mayor Ames reasons
from this that criminals have all taken
to the woods to escape the clutches of his
Now some other equally competent, and
unhampered by the doctor's natural de
sire to make out a case in his own behalf,
find nothing in the workhouse situation
that in the least goes to prove his conten
tion. "The doctor is quite off in his
reasoning," declared a city official closely
connected with the work and records of
the 're and the operation of the courts.
"Fey riminals ever find their way to the
Minneapolis workhouse. That is c re
sorts for drunks and vags almost exclu
sively. Actual criminals take quite an
other route. The fact that there are only
50 inmates there now, against twice that
number a year ago, does not bear on the
criminal situation in Minneapolis at all.
The criminals arrested and convicted will
be found in the jail and at the state's
prison and reformatory, and not in the
workhouse. If the mayor wants to ex
ploit the work of his police department
In dealing with criminals why does he
not deal with the facts from the proper
standpoint. The fact that there has been
such a falling off in the workhouse popu
lation proves only two things, that more
men are employed than before and that
there are fewer arrests of the drunks
and vags still with us. These are the
only conclusions that I believe that any
disinterested men -could draw from the
situation. The doctor is so zealous, how
ever, to make a case of for his police that
I doubt if he would be able to see the
pjint, or concede it if he could see it."

Two Men Refuse Absolutely to Vote
for Conviction
Jurymen Think the State Did Xot
Preaent a Very Strong
The first effort to convict F. A. Briggs,
the gambling machine man, has proved a
partial failure. After what seemed to
many a rather feeble effort on the part of
the state yesterday, the case was given to
the-jury, which remained out over-night
only- to report this 'morning that an agree
ment was out of the question, whereupon
Judge McGee discharged them, leaving the
case to be tried over again.
Despite the fact that some of the jury
men felt that the case, as presented by
the state, was not a strong one. ten of the
twelve voted for conviction from first to
last. The other two voted just as per
sistently for acquittal.
Had Them Cornered.
According to a member of the jury, the
ten men who were in favor of conviction \
labored hard with the other two. but with- j
out avail. At one time an agreement
seemed to be at hand.. The two agreed
finally that if it could be shown that
Briggs had advised Flannigan to put a ma
chine in the Brunswick barroom, and if the
court would instruct the jury that such
advice constituted guilt under the indict
ment and the law, they would vote for
conviction. Judge McGee, when asked for
instructions on the above point, promptly
stated such advice as that indicated would
constitute guilt. The evidence of Mr.
Flannigan, the only.witness called in the
case, was clearly to the effect that Briggs
had advised the putting in of a slot gam
bling machine. Yet, when the jury re
turned to its room, after the judge had
given the desired instructions, the two re
fused to change their votes and continued
to stand for acquittal.
Substance of the Testimony.
The trial, as may be inferred from the
above was short. Upon the completion of
the jury, the state explained what it.pro
posed to. prove and then ..called the pro
prietor of the Brunswick hotel. Mr. Flan
nigan as its first and one witness. Mr.
Flannigan was an unwilling witness. He
said "a man had said to him. "You would
belter put a machine in your bar room."
Mr. Flannigan had said he did not care
to ■have one, but "the man" had replied
that the other hotels were putting them in
and he ought to. On cross-examination
he admitted that-he knew the man to
have been Briggs. .With this the .case,
state rested. The defense was evidently
satisfied, for it brought forward no wit
nesses and the case went to the jury.
Under the instructions of the judge this
testimony was enough to connect Briggs
with the offense charged in the indict
ments, but there was a feeling among
some of the jurors that the state could
have introduced evidence to show that
Briggs had done something more than
advise in the matter of putting in the ma
chine. One of the jurors also says he
thinks the- state was negligent as to the
composition of the jury, otherwise the two
men who stood so strongly for acquittal
would not have been permitted to serve,
especially one. who from his own state
ments upon examination was shown to be
undesirable from the state's standpoint.
Johnson Jury Disagreed.
The jury in the case of Laura B. John
' son against Charles Force, in which action
J was brought for $£>,000 damages, for al
! leged malicious slander, and which was
i tried before Judge Pond, failed to reach
an agreement and were discharged. The
jury went our Tuesday morning and was
not discharged until late yesterday after
! noon, when it was found that an agree
i ment was impossible. ._?:••>-
He Wears Hi« Surgeon-General Uni
form and Associates With His
Gilded Captains. ' ,'_-._/
Mayor Ames received the populace yes
j terday in the full regalia of his new role
lof brigadier several. His good friend,
Governor Van Sant, commissioned the doc
tor surgeon general on his staff a few
weeks ago, and • to accustom himself to
the additional dignity carried by the rank
I and get his new regimentals the quicker
fitted to his frame, the mayor upon rising
this morning clad himself in the gorgeous
emblems of his new rank and competed
with the brigadiers, captains and other
officials of the force in making a spec
tacle about town.
The doctor had some justification in the
fact that to-night he is to accompany the
governor and his staff to Owatonna, where
there are some high jinks scheduled in
honor of the opening of the new armory of
that city. Last week the mayor arrayed
himself similarly and journeyed down to
Governor Lind's old town of New Ulm, to
assist Colonel Bcbleter made a martial
holiday there.
It is aid that the mayor will lose no op
portunity to travel about the state with
the Btaff during the next twelvemonth,
and that he purposes to accept every
chance offered him for a speech or any
other moves that will impress the people.
The doctor was a. fine eight for military
eyes as he sat in his office signing state
documents, receiving the people and lis
tening patiently to their tales of trouble.
The waiting folks caught occasional glimp
ses of tae spectacle through the glass
doors of the inner office and looked as
awed a 6 some European might in the pres
ence of his sovereign. Private Secretary
Brown referred all inquirers concerning
the character of the mysterious decora
tions on the mayor's breast to the doctor

Archbishop Ireland opened the proceedings
with prayer, and Dr. J. F. Fulton of St.

ident (yruii Northrop.
Memorial Day, 1901, was favored with
auspicious skies and a temoerature mak
ing possible a large turnout of the sur
viving veterans of the civil and Spanish-
American wars. In the morning when the
cemeteries were to be visited the sun
shone warm from a clear sky, and the
street railway company was hard pressed
to carry the multitude which wished to
visit the cities of the dead. In the after
noon the heat of the sun was tempered by
clouds and a cooi wind enabled the veter
ans burdened with age and the ills of the
flesh, to fall in for "one more" march
without inconvenience.
The day was more generally observed
than usual. Gradually the closing of
mills, factories, offices and places of busi
ness is becoming more noticeable on Me
morial Day. This fact and the tendency
of people to make the day more one to be
revered than to be marred by sports and
boisterousness, was evinced by the great
crowds on the streets along the line of
march, and the large attendance at the
exercises in the exposition building.
\|i|iliiumi' for Marchers.
The various bodies in the parade were
greeted with applause and bravos. The
old soldiers as usual came in for the lion's
share of attention. Here and there the
hats of the bystanders were removed as
the different Grand Army posts passed,
with their banners and tattered flags.
The parade was a success even greater
than that of past years. S. H. Towler,
of the Rawlins post, was chairman of the
general committee, A. W, Guild, secre
tary and Matthew Kees, treasurer. A. H.
Ruoge was marshal, C. H. Merd, officer
of the day and M. Whelan, officer of the
guard. The committee was composed of
bixty-two additional members, assisted by
fifteen sub-committees. The general or
ganization was so perfect that the plans
were carried out without a hitch.
The Grand Army posts, military and
civic organizations which took part in the
parade reported to the division marshals.
A preparatory gun was fired at 2:13 and
the second gun at 2:30 when the column
moved. The divisions formed off of Nic
ollet avenue on the side streets from
Seventh to Tenth. The escort division and
the O. A. R. division formed on Tenth
street. The line of march was: Seventh
down Nicollet avenue, across the steel
arch bridge to University avenue SE to
Bank street past the reviewing stand to
Prince street, Prince street to Central av
enue, across the steel arch bridge to
Bridge Square, where the column was re
viewed by the chief marshal and staff,
thence to quarters.
The reviewing stand was decorated with
the national-colors and was occupied by
Cyrus Nor'brop, S. R. Van Sant, Mayor A.
A. Ames, Dr. John E. Bushnell, Captain
S. H. Towler, chairman general commit
tee, city council, and invited guests.
Escort Division.
A. D. Reade acted as chief of staff in
the parade, Colonel James Compton as
senior aid-de-camp. Marshal Runge was
assisted by thirty-seven aides, who di
rected the line of march. The escort di
vision, which headed the parade, was led
by The Journal Newsboys' band, a
squad of mounted police and a battalion
of patrolmen under the command of Chief
of-Police Ames and Captain Coffin. In
this division were the veterans of the
Spanish war and the Sons of Veterans.
The G. A. K. Pouts.
Colonel Brown was marshal of the G.

Ceremonies and Decorations in the
Different Cemeteries.
The morning program of the Memorial
Day committee was carried out to the let
ter. Following the usual custom, details
were assigned to the ten different ceme
teries of the city where the dead soldiers
are buried. Flowers, evergreen wreaths
and flags were provided for each of the 900
graves in the city. The Ladies' Aid so
cieties, the Woman's Relief corps and
other auxiliaries prepared the decorations,
and the veteran members of the posts
placed them about the white crosses an#
stones which mark the resting places of
the heroes of the past conflicts.
Program of music, prayer and addresses
were carried out at each cemetery. The
greatest throngs of people assembled. The
Lakewood and Layman's where are buried
a majority of the dead comrades. Hill
side, Maple Hill and St. Mary's followed
next. The morning was sunny and warm
and nothing occurred to mar the peaceful
ness of the occasion.
At Maple Hill.
The program of exercises at Maple Hill
cemetery was carried out as scheduled,
with the exception that Comrade John
Miller officiated as marshal, taking the
place of Charles Stears who was called
from the city. Maple Hill is one of the
oldest cemeteries in the city, and from the
fact that the grounds have been neg
lected it presents a most picturesque and
almost wild appearance. As in the other
cemeteries, a flag was placed over each of
the graves of the forty-six soldiers whose
last resting place is here, and upon each
grassy mound was placed fragrant flowers.
Those participating were L. P. Plummer
Post. No. 50, G. A. R.; L. P. Plummer
W. R. C No. 8; George N Morgan Camp,
Xo. 4. S. of V.: Ladies Aid Society, No. 2;
U. S. Grant Circle. Ladies of the G. A. R.;
teachers and pupils of Pierce school.
The exercises began at 9:30 o'clock with
a song by the children of the Pierce
school, joining in the chorus. The hymn
"America" was then sung, after whfch a
salute was fired by the firing squad, Sons
of Veterans.
A patriotic and eloquent memorial ad
dress was delivered by Rev. G. L. Morrill
and in the course of his remarks he said:
•'Freedom was secured at the greatest cost
of Intellect, eloquence and suffering. The
only debt we can ever pay is the debt we owe
our union soldlere. They were men who,
unmoved by thoughts of glory, plunder or
conquest, preserved freedom with <he cost of
their blood. The national oak which offers
shade and security for all has Its roots In
their graves. Green be their graves, sweet
their rest and dear their memories forever.
For the dead comrades we have flowers and
tears, and for you, the living veteran, we had
love and bread. Too much can never be said
of Lincoln and Grant, too little has been said
and done for the rank and file of the army
who made their victories possible. When the
great resurrection reveille sounds and mus
ters us all, I pray the great Judge may not
look from the veteran's face to mine and
say, "Inasmuch as you did it not to the least
of these soldiers who starved or sickened or
shot, sank on the battlefield with smiles on
their lips, ye did it not to me."
Memorial Day is our nation's Sabbath, when
pious and patriotic meet in the sanctuary of
a cemetery to deck the graves of the heroes
who died that the nation might have more
abundant life, and to consecrate themselves
in a loyalty to preserve this inheritance of
independence and unity against the enemies
of godless greed, ruinous rum, cursed cleric
alism, pestiferous politics and color caste."
At Lakrwood.
Inspiration was abundant at Lakewood this
morning for the magnificent address of the
Rev. Charles Bayard Mitchell, D. D. The
day of memories, the isunny skies above, the
beautiful earth beneath, the upturned faces
of 2,000 eager men, women and children, the
company of 150 dead gathered in ranks at the
foot of the unfinished granite column, sleep
ing, yet alert for the call to the final in
spection and muster, was a setitng to inspire
the true orator on this meeting day of the
quick and the dead
Marshall E. W. Mortimer and N. U. Beden,
chairman of the program committee, had
charge of the exercises. The following posts
and auxiliaries were assigned to this ceme
tery by the general committee:
Kawlins post, No. 126; Bryant post, Xo. 119;
Schaffer post. No. 63; George N. Morgan
Woman's Relief Corps, No. 4; Bryant Wom

The members of these bodies took the street
cars at Hennepin and Washington at 8:::o to
the bridge at Thirty-sixth street. Here the
line of march was taken up to Lakewood
chapel. At this point flowers were given to
the different details which placed them on the
graves of comrades scattered about the ceme
tery. At 10 o'clock all assembled around the
stand which was erected opposite the Grand
Army lot. The Bryant quartet, composed of
Comrades C. H. Mero, A. A. Kelly, B. M.
Hicks and J. M. Allen, sang "Under the Sod
and the Dew." Rev. R. Brown offered prayer,
j which was fololwed by the song,"Falling Into
] Line," by the quarter.
j Dr. Charles Bayard Mitchell delivered the
oration of the day. He said in part:
Dr. Hitch, IT-. Orntlon.
"This service proves that nations are not
ungrateful. Our government is accused by
European nations of being sordid and money
! mad. We are the one people of which I
: know that sets apart a whole day to the
! memory of their dead soldiers. What a beau
j tiful service this is, when contrasted with
j the terrible experiences through which thesfe
| heroes have passed to win the glory and
I honor of this day.
"This custom was established by the Grand
| Army of the Republic in May, 1867, not for
I purposes of continuing the bitter feelings of
I the civil war. We are here to-day not to
revive the bitter antagonisms of the past.
The old soldiers of '61 to '65 are the last ones
to revive such unpleasant feelings. The
blue and the gray have come to regard each
other with feeiings incai able of appreciation
by those who.did not take part in that awful
civil strife. The soldiers in blue learned to
respect the valor of the soldier in gray, as did
,Jheir enemies respect their valor. '
"But we are here prompted by a double
motive: First, love for the friends whose
graves we decorate to-day. We do this in
memory of the friends and defenders of the
flag and in honor also of the surviving
friends. We do not torday forget widows and
orphans of these departed heroes. Second,
love of country. We appreciate what has
been done for the mairttenance of this govern
ment and the perpetuity of its institutions.
Our own self-respect requires it, and another i
reason is, for the sajie of the rising genera
tion, as It teaches thai republics are not un
I'liitvcrs for driHc*.
At the close of the address the firing squad
of Morgan camp. Sons of Veterans, No. 4,
fired three volleys. The benediction was pro
nounced by Rev. Mr. Brown. The graves
of the 150 dead in the Grand Army lot were
then decorated. Above each head is a white
cross with red and blue tips. On these crosses
were placed a flag and an evergreen wreath,
and at the foot of the marker was set a
potted plant. This manner of decoration was
followed in the case of each of the 467 sol
dier graves in Lakewood.
Immediately after the general exercises,
Morgan post held a special service at the
grave of General Morgan, over which, in ad
dition to Masonic symbols, is the following
inscription: "Brigadier General G. N. Mor
gan. Died July '24. 186 ft, aged 40 years and
10 months." General Morgan was the most
distinguished soldier who claimed a residence
in Minneapolis at the time of the civil war.
The choir of the Lake Street Methodist
church, composed of fourteen voices, under
the direction of Professor Newland, sang
"Dream of the Battlefield No More." Chap
lain of the post. L. P. Smith, followed with
the ritual prayer. The chaplain then read a
biographical sketch of General Morgan. The
choir followed with a song entitled "God Is
the Refuge." Rev. Wm. E. Pickard of the
Lake Street church delivered a laudatory and
patriotic oration. The choir sang "America"
and the firing squad fired a volley over the
grave. The program was closed with the
Other Cemeterlea.
At Richfield cemetery L. L. Humphries was
master of ceremonies. The detail was:
Two members from George N. Morgan
post, two from Rawllns post, two from Bry
ant post, two from Butler post, G. A. R.,
and a like number from their respective re
lief corps. Firing squad from George N.
Morgan camp, No. 4, Sons of Veterans. '
The program was prepared and gfven under
the auspices of the ladies of Richfield.
The three graves at Silver Lake cemetery
were decorated by Comrade M. G. Yarnell.
The graves of the soldiers at Bass Lake and
Bloomington Ferry were, decorated under the
auspices of the veterans of the locality.
Hillside Exercises.
The blue sky, sweet air and golden sun
shine of a perfect May morning attracted a
large number of veterans and visitors to
Hillside cemetery, where due honor was paid
to the sacred memories of the patriotic dead.
The parade started from Nineteenth and
Central avenues, at 9:30 o'clock, M. G. Yar
nell acting as chief marshal, being accompa
nied by a detail from Camp No. 9, S. V.;
William Downs post, the W. R. C. of the
same post, and school children.
The program was as follows:
Decorating graves, by school children, un
der direction of Comrades L. L. Locke and
S. A. Johnson.
Firing salute, by detail from Camp No. 9,
S. V.
Singing, by school children.

At St. Anthony Cemetery.
Promptly at 8:30, the line of march was
formed in front of the hall at the corner
of First avenue SE and Fifth street, with
the Sons of Veterans' drum corps leading,
followed by Dudley P. Chase camp. Sons of
Veterans, as escort for Dudley P. Chase post,
G. A. R. The post was followed by the
Dupils of several of the East Side schools,
the orator of the day, the singers, memDers
of Dudley P. Chase Relief Corps, and feeble
members of the post in carriages, marching
out Central avenue to the cemetery of the
Darish of St. Anthony of Padua. As the
head of the column entered the cemetery, the

Havana to Duluth by Water
From Havana, Cuba, to Duluth, Minn.,
is a long cry, and a longer trip by water,
but that is practically the trip the steam
ship Miami, late of the Peninsular & Oc
cidental Steamship company, and now of
the Great Northern Railway line, will
make between now and June 18.
Perhaps this ie not quite right, either.
As a matter of fact, the Miami is now in
the Newport News drydock, getting fresh
ened up for service this summer be
tween Duluth and Mackinac Island, as the
Lake Superior ship of the Northern Steam
ship company, but she has been in service
all winter between Miami, Fla., and Nas
sau, B. 1., and before that between Miami
and Havana, so that when Havana is men
tioned as a starting point it means the
point farthest from Duluth she ■ has
As everybody knows, the steamships
North West and North Land, the white
queens of the great lakes, will be in ser
vice this summer between Chicago and
Buffalo, instead of between Duluth and
Buffalo, and the Miama will cdnnect with
them at Mackinac to and from Chicago
and Buffalo for Duluth. The Miami ie
a beautiful ocean ship with superb cabins
and staterooms and is well worthy a place

The State Mutual Life Assurance Company of Worcester,
Mass., has a phenomenal record for stability of business. During
its existence of fifty-seven years it has written $159,661,378 insur
ance and now has in force $80,889,097, over 50 per cent of the
whole amount written.
It is the insurance which stays that pays. It is the In3uraac9
which lapses that costs.
No other company in the United States can surpass this rec
ord of the State Mutual, this notwithstanding the fact that the
Massachusetts insurance law gives a larger surrender value than^
can be obtained elsewhere. The State Mutual policy holders stay
with the company because they wish to, not because they have to.
Your exact age and address to either of the undersigned will
secure a fac-simile of the new State Mutual policy, and for equity,
lucidity and liberality it is the ideal insurance contract. Send
and get *ne. —C. W. Van Tuyl, General Agent.

as fast as a hound. Her schedule of 500
miles between Duluth and M^ckinac Js
to be made at a lively clip and ehe can set
a pace for the best of them.
On Saturday of this week the Miami will
be formally turned over to the Northern
Steamship company in New York harbor
and she will then set out on her long (rip
up the Atlantic coast to Newfoundland,
up the St. Lawrence, past Quebec- and
Montreal, thence through the locks and
so on up into Lake Erie and the lakes to
Mackinac and Duluth. . She will arrive in
Duluth on the evening of June 18 and with
The Journal's Pan-American excur
sion party aboard begin her season's work
on fresh water.
Of course, a picked crew of Northern
Steamship, seamen will sail the Miami
this summer and they will take charge of
her in New York on Saturday, but her
present captain will be her first officer
this summer and her, navigator until the
great lakes are reached. It's a.«big task
sailing a ship from Havana to Dulutb,
and if you are intereeted in the distance
to -be covered, you will have to ]take down
your geographies and do some "looking
up." It is interesting, too,, to note that
the Miami is the largest ship that can be
brought up the canals of the great lakes,
being able to clear the shortest canal by
just two feet.
