The Mississippi Val ley Lumberman says regarding the mar ket: During the past two weeks the red cedar Bhiagle market has been advancing rapidly and the end is not yet. The west coast mills have had all they could do since the opening of the season to keep up with their orders. During the past two months they have been gradually falling behind, and as trade has been increasing rapidly they have not been able to make any gains. The season is here when the retailer wants his shingles, and this has led to a situation that is making money for the wholesalers who are not so far behind on orders as to make it impossible to furnish stock within a reasonable time. PLEADED GUILTY Mary Scholts) Admits Having "Lifted" Articles of Clothing. Mary Scholts, 48 years old and for many years a resident of Minneapolis, pleaded guilty to shoplifting in police court this morning. She was detected taking a pair of socks at Olson's yesterday, by the special store officer, F. Schaft, and was placed under arrest. She had in her pos session at that time a shirt and collar which she admitted this morning she had taken, from one of the big clothing stores. When the charge was read the accused broke down and wept, protesting that she did not know why she had taken the goods, which are worth only about $1. 6he waa fined 520, which she paid. Mrs. Scholts has never been in the police court before.

An old wooden house at 741 Washington avenue N, which was partially destroyed by flre yesterday, is badly contorted as the re sult of the blaze. The fire was confined to the lower part of the house and burned only the stilts upon which the upper story rested. After the flre department left it began to tumble, and would have fallen completely over had It not been for an abutting building. The barn belonging to Alderman Peter Mc- Coy of the ninth ward was partially de- Etroyed by fire about 7 o'clock thia morning. Mr. McCoy's home, at 640 Johnson avenue XE, is some distance from any fire depart ment station, aud the blaze had secured a good headway in the upper part of the build ing before the apparatus arrived. The fire was confined to the mow and the damage will probably not exceed $250. THE WEATHER The Predictions.

Since their attention has been called to it by The Journal, leading local democrats say that in due time they will take the matter in hand and see to it that a new democratic county organiza tion is formed and the alleged action of the old organization in extending its own lease of power for one year repudiated by the rank and file. "There is no hurry In this matter," said one of them in discussing the sub ject. "It is a long time before the nwt election, but we do not intend to put off the selection of the committee until the campaign is under way. As soon as the hot weather period has passed we shall lay the question before the organization and ask that a date be set and primaries for the election of committeemen called. If the present organization should refuse to do as we ask we shall proceed to call our own primaries and trust to the courts to sustain us in the contention that the present organization has not the right to vote itself an additional year of life."

DON'T NEED THEM Why Europeans Don't Have Many Elevators. SACKS SUIT ALL REQUIREMENTS But ElevntON Are (uminu in Where Grain, la Handled in Bulk. Leith, Scotland, has never had a grain elevator. Although the importation of grain has been large for several years, last year 14,000,000 bushels, it has been handled with steam windlasses and wagons. The contract for building the first one has been let to a firm in Pdrt Huron, Mich. The design, the material and construction will be American. It is a private enterprise, authorized by the dock commission. By using the latest methods and devices of handling grain, 8,000 bushels will be discharged every hour. The warehouse will have a ca pacity of 1,000,000 bushels. The cost will be $500,000. Commenting on the above, Prank T. Heffelflnger of F. H. Peevey & Co., who not long ago took a trip of inspection of foreign methods of handling grain, says that his first impression was of their crudity, but investigation showed that these methods were suited to the require ments. The foreign trucks do not hold as much as the big American cars. The millers simply have little storehouses. They want several different kinds of grain, Roumanian, American, Russian and others, and the method of handling and piling in sacks is very convenient. As long as, instead of having large terminal storehouses such as are used in this coun try, the hundreds of little millers throughout the land are to be supplied, the present methods are sufficient. As the conditions change the elevators may come into use. They are already beginning to build regular elevator storehouses such as we have. Said Mr. Heffelfinger: Sonic Foreign Elevators. An American cribbed elevator is in opera tion at Manchester, England. There are some very good brick warehouses at Liver pool belonging to the Liverpool Grain, £tor age and Warehouse company. The bins are hexagonal and the company uses the same method of elevator legs and conveyors that Americans do. They do not require the same cleaning machinery. Most American grain is cleaned before it goes over. Very little grain is shipped in the United Kingdom and conti nent in bulk, but is chiefly in sacks when it is to go in cars and in bulk when it is to be loaded in barges. I found some very good elevators at Am sterdam, at Antwerp and Copenhagen. At London the dockowners have used the pneu matic system, which they found very expen sive. There are two very excellent concrete one-milllon-bushel elevators in Bralia and Gallats, Roumania, at the mouth of the Dan ube, near the Black sea, which are run by the government. Nicolaiev and Odessa have good brick plants, after European plans. A million-bushel plant is now being built at Genoa, but Hamburg, the best grain port on the continent, has no regular elevator. The storehouses, however, are magnificent. A very extravagant modern elevator has been built of ateel and of brick and steel at Budapest, with marine legs and cleaners, after plans by Professor Ulrich. WANT TOJ3E PLACED Many Candidate* for Places Under Board of C. and C. The board of corrections and charities will be reorganized at the next regular meeting, which will be held July 9. In anticipation of a general change in the" force of employes under the board, numer ous applications have been received from parties anxious to serve the city in some of the capacities. Notwithstanding the frequently aublished statement that Dr. ; H. G. Nelson has Mayor Ames' promise of the position of city physician, others are making efforts to land the place. They are Drs. John H. Lewis, W. B. Linton and Alfred Lind. Dr. E. J. Clark, receiving physician at the hospital, will have the support of the mayor for a new position to be created for his benefit, of central assistant city physician. In connection with this work, Dr. Clark will be associat ed in private practice with the mayor. The applicants for assitant city physicians include Dr. R. A. Cam»bell, one of the present incumbents, Dr. C. J. Bevan, Dr. Thomas J. Reid, Dr. John Campbell, Dr. Emanuel Oberg, Dr. H. L. Staples, Dr. H. T. Wood, Dr. Adolph Loberg, Dr. A. M. Wang, Dr. H. A. Cohen and about a dozen others. A. R. Howe, Luke Carroll, P. B. Rhoads and AI McDonald are anxious to fill Sup erintendent Hagman's shoes at the work house. McDonald has the promise of the place. Truant Office George D. Holt is an applicant for the position of superintend ent of the poor. Al Stringer insists that the Job is his and that he can't possibly miss it. R. P. Pratt, the present super intendent, is heavily backed for the place, but is handicapped by his party affilia tions. OPPOSE FEDERAL AUTHORITY Unintelligible Reports Are Received From Cape Nome. Seattle dispatches say that the steamer Jeanie which arrived at that port from Nome yesterday brought the information that a big stampede from Nome to the Arctic regions where big strikes had been made, was in progress. A fight against the federal authorities at Nome is re ported, with a promise of serious results. Local people familiar with the Nome situ ation and the recent trouble there, do not understand the exact nature of this opposition to federal authority. Among the passengers returning from Nome was Mrs. R. N. Stevens, of Bismarck, N. D., It is understood that Mr. Stevens, who was appointed federal commissioner at Nome and who has figured quite promi nently in the McKenzie-Lane controversy, is to return to Bismarck. Hugh Madden, one of the pasesngers of the Jeanie, brought down $40,000 in gold. William Small, Thomas Capwell, Thomas Jones and Abe Appel are reported drowned at the mouth of the Kuskokowin river this spring. Join the '-Buffaloes" In an excursion to Carver, Minn., June 23d.

A New Suburban Train The Milwaukee has greatly increased the efficiency or its service on the Hastings & Dakota division by putticg on a fast local train between Minneapolis and Hutchin son, Minn. The new train leaves Hutchinson at 7:30 a. m. and arrives in Minne apolis at 9:45 a. m. Returning the train leaves Minneapolis at 4:40 p. m. and arrives at Hutchinson at 7:00 p. m. This change is greatly appreciated by the people o* Hutchinson and intermediate points, as it enables them to leave for Minneapolis at a seasonable hour in the morning and gives them practically the whole day in the city. The distance from Minneapolis to Hutchinson is sixty-five miles and the sched ule time of the new train, two hours and fifteen minutes, will be made if a speed of sixty miles an hour is required to do it. Superintendent Fox of the H. & D. division, said the new train would be pretty fast but its addition to the service had become absolutely necessary to the accommodation of patrons living along the line. The new train will also run to St. Paul but not until it has deposited freight and pas sengers in Minneapolis. THU MIJNJSfEAPOLIS JOURNAL. IT WILL BE 50,000,000 ESTIMATE OF MANITOBA CROP W. T. White of Toronto Nuys That the Province Will Yield That in Wheat. W. T. White, general manager of the National Trust company of Toronto, who 1b one of the Canadian party here enjoy ing the hospitality of President Lowry of the Twin City Rapid Transit company, said to-day that a conservative estimate of the wheat yield of Manitoba could not be placed at less than 50,000,000 bushels. Mr. White's company does a big loaning business in Manitoba and western Canada. He has recently returned from a trip through the western provinces and regards the prospect good for a big yield of wheat. "Manitoba's acreage this year is 2,000, --000," said Mr. White. "The average yield will be twenty-five bushels per acre at least. Manitoba has done that well before. This will result in a big immigration into not only Manitoba, but all of western Canada. Immigration from this country is Increasing. American capital is seeking investment in every part of the Dominion. We have the resources and all that has been lacking is the capital to develop them. Canada is receiving the benefit of much New York, Boston and Philadelphia money." Mr. White asserted that the present visit of Canadian capitalists had no significance whatever along the line of attempting to control the Twin City Rapid Transit. He said that the party came here on the invi tation of President Lowry to look over the property in which Canadians had invested money. The entire delegation is unani mous in their praise of the street railway, of Minneapolis in general, and of Presi dent Lowry's hospitality. CIVIL SERVICE EXAMS Several Are Announced for July 23— Farm Experts Wanted. A civil service examination will be held for the position of aid in the coast and geodetic survey at a salary of $720, July 23. The age limits are from 18 to 35 years. Applicants should send to the commission at Washington for forms. On the same date an examination for the position of copper plate map engraver on the geological survey will be con ducted. The salary is from $3 to $4 a day. An examination for electrician in the federal building at Buffalo, N. V., will be held July 23. Salary, $900 per year. An examination of unusual interest is that for the position of farmer in the In dian bureau service. The applicant must be thoroughly familiar with the local soil and climatic conditions. The salary will be from $600 to $720 a year, with an in crease to $900 for satisfactory service. The duties are the practical instruction and training of the red men in the art of agriculture. Experience of the applicant will count 70 per cent. There are two vacancies at each of the following points: Lapointe, Wis.; Fort Belknap, Mont.; Lerahi, Idaho; Yankton, S. D.; Ouray, Utah, and one each at Carson, Nev.; Col ville, W rash.; Yainax, Oregon; Crow Agency, Mont.; Fort Peck, Mont.; Black feet, Mont.; Pierre, S. D.; Klamath, Ore gon; Standing Rock, N. D.; Fort Totten, N. D.; Tongue River, Mont. At Fort Bidwell, Cal., there is a va cancy for a carpenter at a salary of $600 a year. An Aug. 20, 21 and 22 there will be an examination for the position of mechani cal draftsman at the government arsenal at Watertown, Mass. EDSALL'SJUCCESSOR He Must Be a Man Eqnal to a Grow ing Field. The successor to Bishop Edsall of North Dakota will be elected at the October gen eral convention of the Episcopal church at San Francisco. He may come from any part of the United States, but he must have qualifications for the arduous work of a missionary field. The diocese of 1 North Dakota is sure to grow rapidly within the next few years, and the man to be elected bishop must be capable of expansion along with his charge. As soon as six self-supporting parishes are formed in the state the jurisdiction will be erected into a diocese. Bishop Walker, afterward made bishop of western New York, was the first missionary bishop of North Dakota. He labored for twelve or more years, and was succeeded by Bishop Edsall. Minnesota men have an opportunity for election to this district, but no caucus is allowed, and it is pos sible that the next bishop may be an east ern man, as was Bishop Walker. The standing committee of every dio cese of the church will vote upon the de sirability of the change of Bishop Edsall to Minnesota. The majority will approve the proposed transfer, which will insure the approval of the house of bishops. BACK TO_THE ARMY Capt. Mercer's Request Is to Be Granted. Captain W. A. Mercer's repeated re quests to be relieved from duty in the Indian service and transferred to his own regiment, seem likely to be gratified soon. His transfer may be expedited owing to the war department's desire to obtain the services of all experienced officers in view of the shortage pending the selection of so many new men for the additional force under the army reorganization act. The Indian office will not insist on Captain Mercer's remaining at Leech lake, as there will be no further logging opera tions until congress has substituted a clean cut amendment for the "dead and down" timber act. Captain Mercer has an enviable record as an army officer and is regarded as one of the most expert officials ever placed in charge of Indian agencies. He had a splendid record at the La Pointe agency in Wisconsin, and in spite of innumerable and unlooked-for obstacles to contend with, has acquitted himself creditably at Leech lake.

WAS A WELL KNOWN PUBLISHER He Warn 74 Yearn Old and Had Been a Resident of Minnesota Since 18SS. W. S. Booth died this morning at the residence of his son, W. S. Booth, Jr., 2013 Hennepin avenue, after an illness of six months. Mr. Booth k Career. Walter S. Booth was born at Bridgewater, Conn., Sept. 28, 1827. His father was a farmer who lived on the old homestead which has been kept in the family since 1706. His mother was Sabra Sherman, descended from Samuel Sherman, ancestor of General W. T. Sherman, and one of the first settlers of Stratford. Mr. Booth was educated at Newtown aoedemy and Trinity college, Hartford. He taught in classical schools fitting men for college until 1855. when he came to Fillmore county, Minnesota. He studied law and was admitted to the bar at Austin in 1861. In 1862 he took charge of the Rochester City Post and remained in control until 1863. Mr. Booth and Major Leonard later purchased the City Post and the Republican and united them under the name of Rochester Post Mr. Booth was court commissioner and city and ward Justice while living In Roches ter. He wrote the Juctice's Manual and the Township Manual for Minnesota. These volumes have become standard throughout the state. In 1876 Mr. Booth and his son. Walter S. Booth, Jr., engaged in the business of pub lishing law blanks, township blanks, books and manuals, their publications becoming the standards of Minnesota. They moved to Minneapolis in 1884 and ex tended their business over the territory of Dakota, The firm met with losses in both of the Tribune building flrea, but recovered and is still in the publishing business on Nicollet avenue. In 1848 Mr. Booth married Catherine Eliza Peters of Kent, Conn., who survives him. He leaves two sons, John P. Booth of Afton, Minn., and Walter S. Booth, Jr., of Minne apolis. Three children have died. Mr. Booth was a member of Trinity Epis copal church on the East Side.

FOR A BIG MEETING Commercial Club's Public Affairs Committee Plans MANY SUBJECTS FOR DISCUSSION Various Committees Will Have In tereatlngr Matters to Present— A Large Attendance. The public affairs committee of the Comemrcial Club is making active prep arations for the mass meeting of business men to be held in th© rooms of the club next Tuesday evening. This will be the first big rally of Minneapolis business men in several years. The club exaects to have in attendance many of the men who have done good work for Minneapolis in a public way in cast years as well as a thorough representation of the younger business men. The public affairs commit tee has a clan of work which it expects will benefit the city generally. One ob ject of the meeting is to secure the in dorsement of the business men in general to this j>lan. The meeting will deal with topics In which nearly every business man in the city is interested. Minneapolis wants more conventions, and business men will be enlightened upon what the club pro poses to do in that line. The several committees of the club have been investi gating and are ready with some inter esting information. Among these is the jjublic health com mittee which has made a very thorough study of the question of water supply. The real estate and investment committee which endeavors to tromote the interests of the city along the right lines, and guard its reputation against the work of fraudu lent concerns. In this connection it Is said that could the Guaranty Loan failure have been averted, Minneapolis would have been millions of dollars better off in a general way than she Is to-day and that a public body working along right lines could have saved the city that finan cial jolt. The railroad committee has been one of the most active. It desires to bring to the attention of the business men the neces sity of Minneapolis making a stand for her rights as a distributing and railway cen ter. That Minneapolis should be given the territory to which she is justly entitled without being forced to fight for it andi that at a disadvantage as she does now. Every member of the Club has con stituted himself a committee of one to see that all business men who can will be at the meeting. SUCCESSFUL MINING Cripple Creek Still Flourt»he»- A Minneapolis Man's Fortune. R. W. Hadden. formerly secretary and treasurer of the Minneapolis Credit Men's association, now a mining superintendent and mine owner in Cripple Creek, Colo., is in the city after an absence of two years. When Mr. Hadden left Minneapo lis he went abroad and took a year's course in mining in Glasgow, Scotland. Mr. Hadden says that mining in the Cripple Creek district is practically in its infancy, although its production is from $20,000,000 to $30,000,000 a year. The camp started out in 1892 with a production of $200,000 and has gone up by jumps un til it has reached the figures of to-day with a reputation of being the greatest gold mining camp in the world. Mr. Had den believes that within five years the output will be more than doubled. East ern capital is beginning to go in there. Thus far the money taken out of the ground has been used in developing the mines, but now outside capital is coming in and that will open up the whole dis trict. Hundreds of mines are yet to be developed and it is a surprise even to practical men to find so much undeveloped territory. The producing area has not as yet been defined. One of the surprises is the amount of money which has been tak en out of such a small area. For instance, Carl Johnson has taken out of a half acre of land leased from the Half Moon claim over $800,000 inside of two years. He was without a cent when he started in. Now he is known as the "Lucky Swede." A Tungsten Property. Mr. Hadden has got hold of the very valuable piece of mining property in Boulder county, Colorado, containing large deposits of tungsten ore. It is from this ore that tungstic acid is obtained which is used in the hardening of armor plates. Tungstic acid ranges in price from $JSO per ton for 50 per cent to $500 per ton for 70 per cent concentrates. From $6,000 to $8,000 worth have already been shipped, and Mr. Hadden is corresponding with eastern men for the purpose of raising capitol to handle, the ore. Tungstic acid, for which there is a large demand by iron and steel factories, is imported. Mr. Hadden has come east to attend the wedding of his brother, which occurs in Minneapolis to-morrow, and will return to Cripple Creek at the end of the week.

For the exhibition of horses, cattle, sheep, swine and poultry more than usual amounts of money are offered. The same thing is true in the dairy, woman's, honey, horticultural and agricultural departments. A new agri cultural hall is being built,at a cost of $25,000, which will make possible a more attractive display than heretofore of field, orchard and garden products. Commercial, manufactur ing and machinery exhibits are to be -made prominent also. Not only are the exhibits to be more numer ous, varied, interesting and comprehensive than heretofore, but many new and striking amusement features are being planned. Theo dore Roosevelt, vice president of the United States, will be present Monday, Sept. 2, and open the fair with an address. The racing and other afternoon events before the grand stand will be of high order each day and each evening there will be racing upon the elec tric-lighted half-mile track, sensational specialties, and the most gorgeous spectacu lar pyrotechnic display ever attempted in this country.
