Gustave Theden Says Sorghum
Sugar Is Not Practicable.
All Sort* of Methods Were .Tried,
but All Proved Too '
Gustave Theden, president of the Min
nesota Sugar company at St. Louis Park,
ridicules the idea of a new discovery for
making sugar out of sorghum, according
to the results obtained by Seth M. Ken
ney oi Morristown, Minn. Mr. Kenney's
experiments, or, rather his experiences
with a barrel of sorghum which had fer
mented were recounted in The Jou m
n a 1 of June 15, and the greatest interest
has attached to the possibilities of his
supposed discovery. Farmers all over the
northwest have been eager to learn more
concerning his luck in changing a barrel
of sorghum into a half barrel of sugar,
and they have been impatient to hear
more about it. Up to date, however, all
that is known is that Mr. Kenney'*
sorghum was found to be slightly fer
mented, and that upon discovering its
condition he reboiled it and sold it appar
ently in good condition. The purchaser
drew off two gallons of syrup and re
turned the barrel to Mr.' Kenney because
he could get no more sorghum out of it.
Investigation showed that the sorghum
had turned to "sugar."
Now for Mr. Theden. the local sugar
manufacturer, who presumably knows
whereof he speaks. He says:
I don't like to spoil a good story, one that
deals death to the sugar trust, takes "sugar,"
that is the sacchrine article, out of politics,
abolishes foreign competition, decreases the
value of sugar cane properties, wipes out
the beet sugar industry and opens a new field
for capital in the manufacture of sorghum
sugar, but I've got to do it.
All ol the deductions made from Mr. Ken
ney's experiments are worthless, and will not
assist the farmers of this country one step
in reaching the goal of individual sugai
manfacturing. What Mr. Kenney discovered
was discovered long before he was born,
viz., that syrup will crystalize when it is
boiled down to a rrasquite, or thick syrup,
but the stuff boiled down, or left, is not all
sugar, but glucose principally. What becomes
of Mr. Kenney's discovery when it is known
that if you do not stop fermentation in sugar
juices and syrups there will be no sugar
left at all? Instead of creating sugar, fer
mentation takes it away. Here is another
rule. There is less sugar in sugar juices and
syrups after fermentation than before fer
mentation. Syrup will crystalize in a barrel
or vat ia the course of time even without
fermentation, provided the syrup is boiled
down thick enough, or to what we call "mas
There is a large percentage of glucose
in sorghum sugar, which prevents its being
refined, and if sorghum syrup or sugar is
used, for example, in preserves, it will fer
ment and spoil them. During Jerry Rusk's
administration of the department of agricul
ture, many interesting experiments were con
ducted in sorghum sugar in Kansas. The
government spent several hundred thousand
dollars in trying to successfully make sugar
out of sorgham and finally quit because it
was found impossible to extract snough sugar
to pay the operating expenses of the plants.
The experts engaged In the work tried all
sorts of tricks, fermentation, carbonation,
etc., but were unable to make any of them
Mr. Kenney's experiments are absolutely
valueless so far as their having any bearing
on the sugar industry of this country is con
Decision Not Yet Made on Bishop
Kdaall's Home.
The committee which has been ap
pointed to secure an episcopal residence
for Bishop-coadjutor-elect Edsall has not
yet considered any location. The expen
diture by the committee is limited to $15,
--000. Whether the committee will buy
or build is undetermined, although it is
probable that a satisfactory residence can
be bought outright. The bishop has said
absolutely that he will come to Minne
apolis if he is translated to this diocese.
The proposition of the people of Minne
apolis to furnish him a home made it
possible for him to accept the election.
The coming residence of the bishop in
Minneapolis is a matter of great interest
to the city religiously, socially and in
other ways. The committee has had no
meeting yet, but the members are prepar
ing to make an active canvess for funds
and expect to meet with a cordial recep
tion from those who have the interests of
the city of Minneapolis at heart.
Local Politicians See the Congress-
man at the Nicollet.
Congressman Frank M. Eddy, who was
at the Nicollet last evening, was visited
during the evening by several local politi
cians. Mr. Eddy is paying special atten
tion to the opening of the Red Lake
reservation. The secretary of the interior
has promised to send an agent to confer
with the Indians and endeavor to make
an agreement for the occasion of this
tract. It is expected that Major James
H. McLaughlin, Indian inspector, will be
selected to do this work. If he is suc
cessful the matter will be taken up by the
next congress. The tract comprises in all
1,584 acres of fine agricultural land. Mr.
Eddy says there is no move being made
toward opening the White Earth reser
vation. He says that in his opinion Cuba
will ultimately be annexed on her own
Mayor Ames Will Not Reappoint
Illin—Stringer His Choice.
Mayor Ames announced yesterday, at
the conclusion of his session with' the
eighth ward republican delegation which
appeared to urge the reappcintraent of
Superintendent of Poor Pratt, that Mr.
Pratt would have to go at the end of his
term, which expires July 9. The mayor
declared that he had selected a good re
publican for the job and that he would
make no change in the program. The
party selected is, of course, Al Stringer
of the fifth ward.
In the eighth ward there lives a woman regarded by her neighbors as clever. As
the list of admiring neighbors includes women as well as men, the opinion goes above
For several years she has been known at all of the society events in her part of
the city as "the woman with the lovely head of hair." It went without saying that
each hair hung by its own tiny root, and for that reason the luxuriant coil was all the
more admired.
j One afternoon not long ago she gave a tally-ho party, the drive being around the
Calhoua boulevard. The branches hang so low in summer at sundry spots around the
drive that the millinery of the tally-ho crowd was troubled, so on the afternoon above
referred to hats were ordered off. But the coach passed under one branch unusually
I low. "Low bridge" was called, but the woman with the lovely hair, who was in the
! rear seat, failed to "low bridge" enough. She felt the terrible grip of the twigs in her
I hair, a pull, another, a wrenching of locks, and as her hand instinctively went to the
' help of her hair she turned around. A horrible sight met her eye. There hung her
i lovely hair from that merciless bough. But the tally-ho kept on going. She adjusted
her hat and grew philosophical. None of the party knew It. She would wait until she
got home, an.d then send Johnny after the "switch." This she did, and was congratu
lating herself on the fact that her loss had not been detected, when Johnny "let the
cat go" one afternoon when there was "company", at the house.
Mama said no when Johnny asked to go fishing, and Johnny startled the crowd
"When your switch was hanging to the tree at Lake Calhoun, you didn't use me
this way."
It was all out. Johnny had told enough to make it necessary to tell more, so the
clever woman, at another party given the tally-ho crowd a few days ago, presented
each one with a cleverly illustrated souvenir describing the loss and the rescue of the
switch, and that "lovely head of hair" is even more popular now than before the
Why Lydiard and Brown Arc "Out"
L. A. Lydiard, city clerk, and Thomas R. Brown, Jr., mayor's secretary, do not greet
each other with the "glad mtt" these dyays. In other words, the entente cordiale be
tween these functionaries is strained. Keep it quiet, but the gentlemen are not above
calling each other names in private, and each wears a chip on his left shoulder.
Friends of both are fearful of what will happen should they chance to bump into each
other in the narrow hall that separates the mayoralty privacy from the clerk's office.
Mr. Lydiard is a stalwart young man who got his muscle on a Hennepin avenue farm.
Mr. Brown pulled an oar in college. They weigh within seven pounds of each other,
with the odds in favor of the clerk.
The cause of their enmity is the peculiar sleight-of-hand necromancy by which the
circus tickets for aldermen and other city officials, which since time immemorial have
been handled in the city clerk's office, have found their wfty, first hand, into the
mayor's office. That is to say: Where formerly Mr. Lydiard doled out circus trans
portation to the delight of the city fathers, Mr. Brown now distributes these little
courtesies. This change in distribution quickly followed Mayor Ames' accession to
the throne. Mr. Brown says he cannot see where Lydiard scores. Mr. Lydiard says
Brown Is afflicted with extraordinary offlciousness.
But here is what they have to say of each other:
Mr. Brown Saya:
"Lydiard is simply sora because he can't
hand out the tickets to his friends as he
likes. He has no business with the tick
ets. Precedent? What has precedent
to do with an Ames administration?
Nothing at all. The mayor has
given orders that all complimentary
tickets from circuses and other
outside shows intended for city officials
should be sent to the mayor's office. I
have been instructed to attend to the dis
tribution of such tickets. The mayor, the
police department and the license in
spector have to do with permits and
licenses for circuses and kindred exhi
bitions, and I don't see where the city
clerk comes in. We are the proper cus
todians of the tickets, not Mr. Lydiard."

A Sure Indication of a Good Real
Estate Market.
The surveyors of the city are enjoy
ing the busiest times they have had for a
decade. As a matter of fact, during the
part of the year already gone, they have
had all the work they could attend to.
They have been busy not only in the busi
ness portions of the city and In the estab
lished residence portions, but, for the
first time in ten years, they have been
sent outside to plat new suburbs and new
additions. James E. Egan, in speaking
of the conditions this year, said, this
The year 1901 is the first year In ten that
we have had our hands full of work. During
the past ten years we have done more or less
work in and about the city, but there has
been almost no work at all for us to do in the
line of platting new additions. The city engi
neers' reports will show that during one
year plats were filed for not more than ten
acres of land. This year, however, there is
an abundance of surveying to be done, both
in and out of the city.
For Instance, we are now busy platting
"Walton Park," the new addition in North
Minneapolis. This addition alone contains
eighty acres and is the biggest addition plat
ted for a good many years. Then there has
been replatted Blaisdell's addition on Blais
dell avenue. The Pettlbone tract, on which
the Plllsburys are going to erect new resi
dences, has also been platted. Several other
extensive areas have been laid out. Capital
ists have even gone so far as to plat a new
suburb at Lake Mlnnetonka, "Northland,"
just this side of Wayzata.
Surveyors believe that there is nothing
that "indicates the condition of the real
estate market better than the amount of
work they are doing, and they look upon
the opening up of "Walton Park" and.
other outside property as most conclusive
evidence of the re-establishment of the
market upon a firm basis.
The Imperial Manufacturing company of St.
Paul has been incorporated by George R.
Kibbe, Mark D. Flower. Michael P. Ryan,
John W. Shepard and James C. Michael. The
capital stock is at $500,000. The company will
manufacture electrical machinery and steam,
heating appliances.
Mr. Lydiard Remark*:
"Complimentary tickets for the alder
men and heads of city departments have
always been handled through the city
clerk's office. When Tom Brown got to be
mayor he immediately attempted to ter
rify proprietors of shows by intimating
that unless they sent plenty of tickets to
the mayor's office no permit would be
given the show for a street parade, nor
would a license be granted to them for
exhibition purposes. Now the aldermen
are responsible for the ordinance permit
ting circuses to show here. As to tlie
license, all the circus man has to do Is to
pay his regulation fee to the city treasur
er; the mayor has nothing to do with it.
The city clerk is the authorized clerk of
the city council, and favors extended to
that body should properly be transacted
through my office. As for Brown, his gall
and officiousness exceed anything I ever

field for books which combine nature
studies with instructive reading. He ar
gued that the best results in language
teaching were to be obtained from good
readers and the committing to memory of
good poems and prose literature. The
view of the state superintendent was ap
proved by several of the educators presr
ent, but was opposed by Superintendent
Tormey of Winona, who deplored exteed
ingly the fact that in his early school
days such a thing as nature study was
unknown. He contended that the essence
of any subject was best reached by na
ture study and that learning obtained ex
clusively from readers was certain to be
more or less superficial. Others upheld
this view and one went so far as to de
nounce the "measly, wishy-washy sort of
sentences" commonly found in the nature
books of to-day, admitting, however, that
nature study freed from the impossible
talk ascribed to birds and flowers and the
impossible actions ascribed to animals,
would be a great improvement.

Feel That the Police Aren't Treating
Them Fairly.
Trouble is brewing between the police
1 authorities and the Volunteers of Amer
ica. The Volunteers say they have been
harried about from pillar to post; that
they have complied with requests to
"move on" until they are satisfied that
the police are determined not to let them
hold any curbstone meetings, and that
they are about ready to seek a legal test
case. During previous administrations
the Volunteers have never clashed with
the police. If complaints were made of
their meetings in certain localities, they
sought others and worked in harmony
with the authorities. Lately, however,
they have become nearly worked up to
the point of ceasing to regard forbear
ance as a virtue. During one series of
meetings they were "moved on" no less
than six times, each time being told to
get to a back street, and each time seek
ing a spot which they believed filled the
"It seems unjust," said one of the Vol
unteers this morning, "because we al
ways take special pains to see that we
do not obstruct the street. We have men
whose business it is to circulate around
the edges of the audience asking people
to keep the sidewalk clear on one side,
and to leave a passage open between our.
circle and the street car tracks on the
other. We have witnesses to prove not
only that we have taken such precau
tions but to show that they have proved
effective. Yet a few Sunlays ago an offi
cer came into our audience with drawn
club and began shoving people roughly
aside on the pretext that we were ob
structing the street. Such interference
when we are not obstructing a thorough
fare very closely approaches disorderly
disturbance of a religious gathering, of
which offense a policeman can be con
victed as speedily as a civilian. We have
always made it a point never to hold our
meetings on the sidewalks, and it seems
like partiality when we see brass bands
stationed directly on the sidewalks in
fr»nt of places like Sodini's and allowed
to entice people into vice without the
slightest police hindrance. When we do
not ask nearly the same privileges, it
seems as if we should be allowed at least
the privilege in our work of trying to at
tract people to a better life."
The New Tltirteenth Cavalry Is Slow
ly Filling; Up.
Army reports show that one squadron of
four troops of the new Thirteenth United
States cavalry is filled and that a few
recruits are left as a foundation for the
second and third squadrons, to be organ
ized at Fort Meade. The completed squad
rond will probably be sent to Fort Assin
iboine. It is expected that ten of the
twelve troops of the new regiment will
winter in the department of the Dakotas.
One squadron of four troops will be sta
tioned at Fort Assiniboine, a like num
ber at Fort Meade, S. D., and one troop
•each at Fort' K«ogh, Mont., and Fort
Yellowstone, Wyo.
It Removes the Necessity of a Com-
iniMMlon of liujnirj.
Sheriff Dickman of Wabasha county has
made a proposition removing the necessi
ty of the commission of inquiry appointed
by Governor Van Sant. Dickman will de
posit to the credit of the county a sum
equal to the amount of the alleged short
age on tax bills. The county commission
ers will go over the list and determine
what amount is due, returning the re
mainder of the deposit, if any. When this
settlement has been made, the governor
will revoke the order for suspension.
St. Paul Policemen Bitten by a Mad

bits with virus taken from the dog and
yesterday rabies developed in one of the

Not a Tiling Has Happened to Mar
Pleasure of Trip—Party Due
Here Saturday. . .
Correspondence of The Journal.
. On the Steamship North Land, Cleve
land, June 26.— Journal ! excursion
sailed away from Buffalo last night at
9:15 on the North Land, and the ninety
returning members of the big party
watched the lights of the Pan-American,
city fade away in the distance with re
gret, for the four days spent there were
delightful ones, with not a drop of rain
to mar the pleasure, and the temperature
all that could be desired. Some of the
party are waiting over for later sailings,
and some have gone east for a few days,
but the majority wanted to stay with the
crowd in which they have had such good
times, and ' came away on the "Land."
We have just stopped at Cleveland, and
are now on the way home in earnest and
will arrive there on Saturday morning.
Last night Lake Erie was like a pond.
Good weather seems to follow the party
wherever it goes.
To say that the crowd is enjoying every
minute of the trip is putting it mildly.
Everybody is out for a good time and
everybody is having it. The exposition
and its great midway were done from one
end to the other, and the party is unani
mous in the opinion that the "expo" is a
v.'cnderful show.
And such music as it has been the good
fortune of The Journal's party ■to hear.
First there was Sousa, then there were the
Sixty-fifth and Seventy-fourth Regiment
bands of New York, as well as the great
Mexican band, and the music these great
organizations furnished was splendid. To
,hear Sousa play his new "Invincible
Eagle" march Is to hear "the greatest
yet." Bryan was also an attraction not
down on the program.
There has not been a single case of
sickness, and the whole trip so far hae
been delightful. At least, that seems to
be the sentiment of all aboard.

Members Preparing to Visit Red
River Valley—No Construction
Work This Year.
P. E. Hanson, secretary of state, is try«
Ing hard to get a meeting ol the new state
drainage board, of which he is secretary.
Governor Van Sant is chairman and State
Auditor Dunn Is the third member. The
board has a very thankless task on its
hands, and is not at all anxious to take
Only $25,000 a year was allowed by the
legislature for the work of the board, and
■that will only be "a drop in the bucket"
as compared with the amount needed.
Every county in the Red River valley has
applied for some drainage work, and appli
cations have even been received from Todd,
Aitkin and Meeker counties. Some of the
main ditches in the Red River valley
would cost $6,000 a mile. It is evident
that $25,000 will not go very far and that
most of the applicants will be disappoint
ed. They will probably make a fight in
the next legislature for $100,000 a year.
The commission will hold a preliminary
meeting in a few days and then take a
trip to the Red river country. The mem
bers will select an engineer to make the
survey and recommend localities where
work is to be done. For this position
there is a warm rivalry between Professor
W. R. Hoag of 'the state university and
J. E. Rolfe of Orookston.
It Is probable that there will be no
construction work done this year. The
engineer -will make surveys and estimates,
and have everything ready for digging the
ditches next spring and summer.
The Attorney General's Opinion. a*
to Street Hallway- Taxes.
Attorney Oeneral Douglas has decided]
that the Ramsey county commissioners
have no right to compromise with the
street railway company by accepting its
offer to pay taxes upon a $1,600,000 as*
sessment instead of the $2,100,000 assess
ment established by the state board of
equalization. Mr. Douglas holds that
county commissioners have no power
whatever to reduce assessments and that
their only power, practically, is to make
recommendations to the stale auditor.
The attorney general offers to- take up the
question and support his contention In
the courts in case the attorney of Ram
sey county wishes him to do so.
