HAS $8,000,000 OF "COMMON"
The Total litane 1m $15,000,000— '50
Desire Whatever to Part
AVitu Stock.
Although Thomas Lowry is on a tour of
Inspection of the Soo road, which makes
communication with him difficult, The
Journal has the best of authority for
denying that he has given an option on
all his holdings in the Twin City Rapid
Transit company, as told in a morning
newspaper. From a half dozen reliable
sources comes the information that Mr.
Lowry has not parted with his control of
Rapid Transit stock nor has he the remot
est intention of doing so. His Duluth
interview of ten days ago in which he de
clared that he had not sold a dollar's
worth of stock and would continue in con
trol of his valuable holdings was abso
lutely true, according to friends who are
in bis confidence.
The $15,000,000" of common stock which is
controlled by Mr. Lowry is not lying
around loose in largo blocks to be picked
up by the first buyer who happens along,
say Mr. Lowry's friende. There has
been a good deal of trading in the stock
in Toronto and Montreal lately, but it has
been done in small blocks. The Canadian
capitalists, who have been kicking up the
dust lately, bought a large amount of the
stock at about 55 two or three years ago,
and they have been picking up what they
could in the open market since.
"Mr. Lowry will always retain control
of the $15,000,000 of common stock," said
an authority to-day. "He has eeen it
rise irom 75 to 94 in a few weeks, and *.s
a business proposition he would not dream
of relinquishing his hold on it. Mr. Lowry
knows exactly where control of the stock
rests every minute, and he is not to be
caught napping. What he doesn't know
his friends know, and there is no chance
in the world of the control slipping out
of. their hands. Mr. Lowry has about
$8,000,000 of the $15,000,000 common stock
which will enable him to swing things for
awhile."
GRAY THEIR HOPE
Ex-Policemen Will Organize to
Make Him Mayor.
PLAN TO GET PLACES BACK
The ex-Mayor Said to Regard the
Democratic Nomination
am Certain.
The hundred or more policemen whom
Mayor Ames dismissed from the service
when he assumed command of the police
department last winter, will form the
nucleus of Former Mayor Gray's canvass
for a return to place and power in the
mayoralty office.
The discharged officers are friends of
Gray to a man, and they hate Ames with
the accumulated gall of months of idle
ness. Their enmity to the present in
cumbent dates from the hour of their dis
missal, and they are taking no pains to
conceal their feelings. With Ames as a
candidate for re-election, they will work
in season and out for Gray, irrespective
of party affiliations.
The "newspaper mayor," as the genial
doctor delights in calling his predecessor,
is a candidate for the democratic nomina
tion, and he has received so many assur
ances from prominent men in his party
that he regards the nomination as al
ready tucked away in his inside pocket.
He has a host of personal friends, and on
a comparative showing of administrations
he confidently expects the support of hun
dreds of republicans who are disgusted
with Ames and all that Ames implies.
The men who lost their jobs because of
Ames' determination to build up a politi
cal machine regardless of the public wel
fare, naturally regard Gray as the man
for them to tie to, inasmuch as he held
their places for them on the force. They
are also kindly disposed toward Former
Superintendent of Police Doyle, who, pre
sumably, would again be in charge of the
police department in the event of Gray's
election.
A $2,000 ROBBERY
Burglars Used a Wagon to Carry-
Loot
IN THE HEART OF THE CITY
Crime Committed Right Under the
Bre« of the Police—
Miller's Loss.
When burglars reap such a rich harvest
as they did Saturday night in Miller'a
clothing store at 1207 Washington* avenue
N, the real object of the police in sup
pressing news becomes apparent.
In a business district, on a main thor
oughfare of the city, where there is sup
posed to be the best police protection in
the town, burglars deliberately drove a
wagon into the alley in the rear of the
store, battered in the rear door and made
off with most of the stock on hand. They
carried off clothing valued at $2,000.
Mr. Miller says that the facts in the
matter have been carefully covered up by
the police. He believes if the district was
properly policed that any such depreda
tion would have been impossible.
SMALL-PILL MEN
Annual Session of the American In
stitute of Homeopathy.
Richfield Springs, N. V., June 19.—The
sessions of the American Institute of
Homeopathy continued to-day. It is ex
pected that a motion will be made ex
pressing the sentiment of the institute on
Christian Science, and especially on the
language ascribed to Mrs. Eddy in a re
cent interview at Concord, N. H., on the
evolution from allopathy to homeopathy,
and from homeopathy to Christian science.
Prominent from San Francisco is Dr.
Florence Saltonstall Ward, second vice
president oi the institute. Dr. H. F. Big
gar is prominent in Cleveland. Dr.
George Royal, the delegate from lowa, is
dean of the College of Homeopathy in the
lowa state university at Dcs Moines. Dr.
James H. McClelland of Pittsburg, one of
the leading delegates from Pennsylvania,
was one of the foremost agents in secur
ing from congress the site in Washing
ton on which stands the Hahnemann
monument. The president of the insti
tute is Dr. A. B. Norton of New York, who
has arrived.
BACK FROM THE RIFLE RANGE.
Special to The Journal.
Red Wing, Minn., June 20.— Company C,
Eighth United States infantry, camped near
the training school last evening on their
way back to Fort Snelling after a ten days'
outing at the Frontenac rifle range.—Miss
Julia Richards and Patrifk Edwards were
married yesterday at St. Joseph's Catholic
church.
A curious discovery was made in Con
cord, Mass., recently. In the attic of the
Thoreau homestead was found a quantity
of leadpencils, all bearing the stamp
"Thoreau & Son." The naturalist and his
father once made lead pencils for a living,
and for years a great store of their com
pleted product was hidden away just un
der the ridgepole of the homestead. Those
pencils to-day are in demand for other
purposes than writing.
THE MINNEAPOLIS JOURNAL.
OLD SORES TENDER
Norwegian Lutherans Vote to Re-
move a Corner-Stone History.
IT WAS SEALED UP SUNDAY
l>«fed That It Reflected Upon One of
Former Branches of the
Conference.
Some mutterings of the- internecine
warfare carried on by the Norwegian Lu
therans iv thia country for a full gen
eration before the amalgamation of three
of the branches was completed was heard
yesterday in the conference of the
United Norwegian Lutheran church. It
was a trivial incident, but deeply signifi
cant of old-time strife.
By common consent the ante-union
period, that is the period previous to 1890,
is tenderly handled in the United Church
as there are still open sores which, if
they have been practically healed, are
yet a little tender. In the historical
sketch of the United Church prepared by
Rev. Ivor Tharaldsen, of Madison, Minn.,
for the corner stone of the St. Anthony
Park seminary, there were several refer
ences which touched on some sore spots.
Mr. Tharaldson was formerly a member
of the former Norwegian conference and
handled his Subject too much from that
standpoint, stating that one branch had
wandered from the Norwegian church to
the Germans, but had seen the error of
their course and returned to their true
home (this, by inference, being the old
Norwegian conference). At least several
members of the former anti-Missourian
brotherhood, who heard the sketch were
somewhat displeased. It came to Rev.
Tharaldsen's ears that there was a little
feeling and this morning he asked for the
appointment of a committee to correct
possible inaccuracies.
Rev. E. J. Homme, of Wittenburg, Wis.,
promptly moved that the historical Bketch
be removed from the corner stone where
it had been so carefully deposited and by
an overwhelming vote this was ordered
done. No other motion was carried.
Rev. Tharaldsen was somewhat chagrined
over the summary disposition made of his
work, but in the interest of »eace will
allow the matter to rest where it is.
Deaconess' Home.
The conference went on record as in
favor of the proposition that the United
church should assume control of the
Deaconess Home at Chicago as soon as a
safe and satisfactory transfer of the prop
erty can be made. It ia not likely that
any attempt actually to transfer the home
will be made until the next conference.
The church approved the desire of the
managers of the home to have a clergy
man stationed there, provided the one
called should be a member of the United
church.
Resolutolns of respect to the memory
of the late Rev. Messrs. Mikkelsen and
Loveland were reported by Rev. S. O.
Braaten and adopted.
Martin Holatad's Importance.
Martin Holstad, a farmer from Worth
county, lowa, was lifted out of his ob
scurity by proposing a resolution pro
hibiting members from secret societies
from taking seats in the conference as
delegates. It was expected that some one
would take a shot at this .vexed question
before the session closed, so Mr. Holstad
did not startle anybody. Every one pres
ent, however, pricked up his ears, for
there was, of course, a chance for some
lively debate, but the conference was
steered away from the snag by a motion
to postpone the matter to the next con*
ference. j
Cries for division were made, and Vice
President Dahl, who was in the chair,
reluctantly consented to order one. A
careful count showed that he was right,
as the motion to defer action on the se
cret society squabble to the next con
ference was carried by a vote of 232 to 119.
No Anssburg Expansion.
An attempt to expand the Augsburg
Publishing house plant was voted down
after a short but stubborn fight. The man
ager of the Institution, the board of trus
tees and the publication committee unite
in the recommendation that the publish
ing plant should operate its own bindery
and printery as well as . to increase its!
composing department. It will cost about
$25,000 to make the contemplated expan
sion of the publishing plant, and this sum
must be borrowed. ..; This settled its fate. i
The resolution to borrow and expand was
defeated by a vote of 170 to 119.
Objection was made by several dele
gates to the use of so ■ much space in
Lutheraneren, the church organ, to credit
ing subscriptions and donations to the va
rious funds. After the delegates had been
assured that there would be a falling off
if the donations were not publicly ack- |
nowledged the conference decided not to
meddle with the present system.
. Rev. S. W. Dickinson, representative of
the American Bible society in the north
west, addressed the conference.
A GRUDGING PERMISSION*
The Conference Authorises' a Semi
nary Loan.
Dislike to assume a debt of any kind,
so common among the Norwegians, was
fully exemplified at the meeting of the
United Norwegian Lutheran church con
ference Tuesday afternoon. About
$25,000 -is required to complete the the
ological J seminary at St. Anthony Park.
There are several reasons why the build
ing should be completed by next.Septem
ber. The money is not at hand, and while
the church is very rich, as shown by its
ability to raise $140,000 in one year for
educational institutions alone, many dele
gates opposed semblance of a loan,
even of the most temporary character.
After arguing with *•" the uncompromising
delegates all afternoon the authorities
were finally permitted to borrow $25,000
with which to finish and equip the sem
inary. ..During the debate the fund com
mittee reported that it had received for
the second subscription $2,258 from clergy
men and professors, $10,716.87 from con
gregations, and $3,000 in unpaid subscrip
tions, making a total of $16,274.87.
More Committees.

death of Re%\* Messrs. B. Mikkelsen and
E. Loveland, Rev. S. O. Braaten.

report, Rev. Messrs. J. C. Jensen, Rose

Visitor for Aberdeen district, J. N. Ped

So much time had been spent on the
debt question in the afternoon that an
evening session / was necessary" and at
this time the antiborrowers were able to
secure the passage of a resolution requir
ing the board of trustees to refrain from
making a loan until all efforts to secure
the money desired by subscription had
proved futile. The principal business of
the evening was the debate on the rec
ommendation of the committee on Augs
burg Publishing house, authorizing it to
borrow $20,000 and put in a complete bind
ery and printing office, the same to be
paid from the profits of the business. No
decision was reached when time to ad
journ came.
The English conference held a brief
meeting in the afternoon and worked off
some routine business matters. The offi
cers elected were: Rev. G. A. T. Rygh
Chicago, president; Rev. E. T. Royne!
Manitowoc, Wis., vice president; Rev. j!
A. E. Naess, Boscobel, Wis., secretary
Rev. Gustav H. Steams, Milwaukee, treas

meeting was left to the officers.

HEALING BY FAIHT
County Attorney May Act in the
Massolt Case.
AWAITING THE JURY'S REPORT
What Mr«. Thompson, the Healer,
Says of the Case and of ex-
Cot. Clouit'h'it Defense.
County Attorney Boardman said this
afternoon that he would at once begin
an inquiry into the circumstances sur
rounding the death of Hugo Massolt, for
which a coroner's Jury yesterday held Mrs.
Emma A. Thompson, a Christian Scientist,
at 314 Sixth street S, responsible. Mr.
Boardman was out of the city yesterday
and at 2:3o'o'clock this afternoon had re
ceived no report of the findings of the
jury except through the newspapers. • He
knew, however, that the report was forth
coming, and understood the nature of the
case. He had decided to investigate very
carefully before determining whether or
not it was a matter which the county at
torney should take up against Mrs.
Thompson. He expressed no opinion m
to the case.
Mr*. Thompson, whom the Jury believe
is responsible for the death of Hugo Mas
solt, is not apprehensive of any serious
result of the agitation which she says
has been started by prejudice caused by a
lack of understanding of the methods of
healing in Christian Science. She is little
disturbed by the publicity given her name
in connection with the case and expresses
her desire not to allow it to interfere in
any way with her work.
"I condemn no one," said Mrs. Thomp
son. "I am indeed aorry that the
death of the boy is being widely
published in this way, because I believe
it is wrong. It is the duty of the people
to the bereaved to bind up the broken
hearts, rather than to cause them to
bleed. I have nothing whatever to say
about the death of the boy. Ido not de
sire to express an individual opinion. I
am very willing that my work sbfluld be
investigated; I want the people to know
the facts, rather than to have them listen
to ideas they may have previously formed
concerning curing by faith, or to the ideas
of others who are prejudiced, profession
ally or otherwise, against Christian sci
ence. The work speak 3 for itself, and I
would like to have the people know the
facts concerning the work before they
judge.
"We do not claim that we can cure
every person by Christian Science. That
is manifestly impossible. But we do claim
that wo have healed many who had been
given up as lost by other physicians. Is
there anything strange that a person
should die while undergoing our treat
ment, any more so than that a patient in
any physician's care should die? Yet no
publicity is given a death that ensues in
the latter case. Why should it be with
us? Yet we do not complain. We are
willing that every fact concerning any
death be known, for the facts will speak
for themselves more plainly than the opin
ions of any person."
Gov. dough's Defense.
Mrs. Thompson was shown an interview
printed this morning in which ex-Gover
nor Clough praised her for her work and
expressed his sorrw that she had been
held responsible for the boy's death. Mrs.
Thompson said:
"Governor Clough knows whereof he
speaks. He did not speak from heresay,
or from any preconceived ideas he had on
the subject. Six years ago his wife was
suffering from an affliction, and the regu
lar physicians of the family and others
expressed their belief that she would
never recover. I was called and Mrs.
Clough was restored, and to-day is in
perfect health. I do not say this to boast
of our work, for I want the work to speak
for itself, but it shows that Mr. Clough
knows something about Christian Science,
end what he says should have some
weight. I know that there are hundreds
in Minneapolis who believe as he does."
The Masaolt Case.
Mrs. Thompson was asked about the
Massolt family, and she replied:
"It is not they who instituted an inves
tigation of the case. They know every
thing about it and are satisfied that noth
ing was left undone. There has been th«
kindliest feeling between us since the
boy's death, and the family are now ap
preciative of what we have done for them.
Fourteen years ago a daughter in the fam
ily was critically ill, and her physician
said there was no hope for her. For
twelve months she had suffered, but under
Christian Science she was healed in as
many hours, and the young lady is living
and well to-day."
What A. P. Myer Says.
Christian Scientists in Minneapolis do
not fear an investigation of the death of
Hugo Massolt by the law, because they
believe that by it "the facts and not opin
ion and prejudice will be brought out."
and yet they deprecate the fact that the
death of the boy has been given publicity
and the responsibility fixed by the cor
oner's jury.
"Such cases are the result of profes
sional prejudice," said A. P. Myer, of 1113
Sixth street S, yesterday. Mr. Myer
is one of the most prominent Christian
Scientists in the city. He says he was
healed by the faith six years ago, by
reading Christian Science text books, and
since then has been at work healing oth
ers. He continued:
We do not anticipate that anything eerious
will result from the death of the boy Maasolt.
It is like many other cases that have been
brought against us by prejudiced and opinion
ated people. Who have no understanding of
our methods. Hundreds of cases have been
brought against u« in this country and in
Europe. In a few Instances there have been
verdicts against the defendant in the lower
courts, but not in a single case was this ver
dict sustained in the superior courts, showing
that when Judged entirely from the facts
there is nothing that can work against via.
The Christian Scientists of Minneapolis wilt
not get together and fix up a case for Mrs.
Thompson; it is a matter entirely her own,
and will be Judged entirely on her work and
not what some people think about It
BEALL SUSTAINS WADSWORTH
Says Captain Did Right to Cancel
Waaeoa Game.
President A. B. Beall of the Minneapolis
baseball team returned yesterday from
Sioux City, and upon being informed of
the Waeeca incident promptly approved
the course pursued by Manager-Captain
Wadaworth. "The Minneapolis team can
not be used to advertise a gambling
game," declared Mr. Beall, "not while I
have any voice regarding its movements.
The people of Waseca had $3,000 or more
to bet that their club, an amateur or at
least a semi-professional club, would win
from a speedy professional team. The
gambling feature was the principal one,
as far as I can learn, and the ball game
was simply a secondary condition. I don't
approve of such methods and don't want
the players, all of whom are gentlemen in
every way, to be used for any such pur
pose. We were offered $100 and railway
expenses to play an exhibition game in
Waseca, and as the money would help pay
expenses and the trip would be a little
outing for the boys, we readily accepted.
"The chances of a row in case we should
pull ahead were too good. If the umpire
was honest the spectators would undoubt
edly interfere, and if he was not, he could
easily throw the game to Wasece. I don't
want to be mixed up, either, in a row or
the other feature. Simply considering the
matter as a business proposition it
would be bad policy, but aside from that I
am opposed to all methods of gambling
and will not further any such schemes."
Mr. Beall announced yesterday that
he had secured another infielder. He ie
W. L. Pattison, a student of Dixon col
lege, Illinois. He has been playing ever
since the snow left the ground and is in
good physical condition. Nothing is known
of his work here, but he is "tipped oft" as
being a very promising ball player.
ODD FELLOWS MEET
Grand Sire A. C. Cable Attends
State Lodge Session.
GRAND MASTER TO BE ELECTED
Five Hundred Delegate* Attend—
Rebekah Awembly Al»o
in SfHNluu. v
Over 500 representatives and members
of Minnesota Odd Fellows lodges are in
attendance at the session of the grand
lodge, which convened at the state capi
tal, St. Paul, yesterday.
In the afternoon a reception was ten
dered to Grand Sire A. C. Cable, who is a
guest of the convention.
Only one officer Is to be elected, and
that is the grand master. At the last
election there were six candidates for this
office. The laws require that, in order to
be elected, a candidate must not only have
a larger number of votes than any of his
competitors, but he must have at least
one-third of all the votes cast. None of
the candidates at the last election re
ceived the required one-third. S. A.
Farnsworth of St. Paul led with 576, G.
A. Fosnes of Montevideo was next with
377, and William McGregor of Minne
apolis, was third with 292. The contest in
the grand lodge is between these three,
with the chances rather favoring Farns
worth. Neither city has had the grand
master for a number of years.
Another proposition over which there
will be some debate is to reduce the fees
for the first, second and third degrees
from ?5 to $2 each. Grand Matser Van !
Praag, in bis annual report, recommends !
that this be done.
Grand Master Van Praag estimates that
four new lodges were instituted during
the year—Breckenridge, Minneota, Hen- I
dricks and Minnesota Lake. There was \
one consolidation, Duluth and Silver ,
lodges at Duluth, joining under the name i
of the former. Reports from the deputies
show an increase of 1,200 in the member
ship of the order during the past year, and
allowing for suspensions, there has been
a net gain of 1,000.

a Team for an Owner,
Special to The Journal.
Mankato, Minn., June 20.—Sheriff Ger

loose in the road.
The sheriff and his deputies are scouring
the country looking for a team of ponies,
one chestnut and one bay, with a new
red-geared buggy, which were secured
Tuesday evening from J. H. Michel's liv
ery barn by a stranger who gave his
name as Robbins, and who said he wished
to drive out four miles into the country
to bring back his brother whose wife was
sick. He has not been heard from, and
nothing was known of his brother at the
place named.
