The Pickpockets* -Harvest — There
were several pickpockets aboard the excursion
train to Mason City, lowa, where the corner
stone of .the new memorial university of the
Sous of Veterans was laid yesterday. It is
estimated that they secured about $600 in cash
besides a diamond stud valued at $125.
Filtration Still a Problem — Alder
luan A. E. Merrill : returned this morning
trom a two weeks' trip in the east. He at
tended the annual convention of the American
Waterworks Association In New York, and
then spent a week investigating pumps. The
practicability of mechanical nitration, he
says, was by no means settled conclusively at
the convention.
Don't Favor Flax Elevators—Min
neapolis grain men do not favor the plau of
special elevators for flax proposed by Nortn
Dakota business m»n. It is claimed that flax
is receiving good attention from the graiu
men, and that it is not permanent enough a?
a product to warrant the construction of ad
ditional warehouse room adapted to that spe
cial grain.
Coming Police Changes — Mayor
Ames has announced that several changes
will be made in the municipal court detail of
the police on July 1. The most important o£
these will be in the case of Captain Fitehette,
who has been in charge of the detail, but who
will be transferred to headquarters. Sergeant
E W. Dudley will become a lieutenant and
will have charge of the detail at police court
(rushed Bet-ween Cars— Arthur C.
Ford, a Northern Pacific brakeman, died last

Where Prices Will Be Thin Fall,
However, Is an Open
Local coal dealers say the action of the
New York dealers in advancing the New
York retail price of coal 25 cents a ton
has no significance whatever in this mar
ket, and that the plan of the metropoli
tan dealers to add another 25 cents a ton
on Sept. 1 and to make a third increase of
ihe same amount Nov. 1, will also apply
only to New York cHy.
The statement in the published report
r>f the Gotham gathering to the effect j
that prices have been going up at the rate
of 10 cents a month since April is not
true, say the locul coal men, except in
This way: The circular price of anthra
cite coal in Minneapolis is $8.25 per ton,
but in the month of April a discount of
50 cents a ton was allowed for April de
livery. In May the discount was reduced
to 40 cents and in June to 30 cents and in
August it will be only 20 cents.
A local dealer said to-day that the price
remained the same, the only "raise" be
ing in the diminishing discount as the
coal season drew nigh. The discounts are
offered as inducements for people to lay
in their coal supply during the summer.
As to the price that will obtain for
anthracite coal next winter, the dealers
say they know as little about it as the
man in the moon. The producers fix the
price which forms the basis of the price
quoted in this territory. The present
price of anthracite coal on the cars at the
head of tie lakes is $6 per ton.

Mr. Nye announced that they would submit
the question of the legality of the bonds to

withdrawn on notice of the adverse opinion
of the Boston bond attorneys, and three of
the six submitted required a favorable opin
ion from the same firm.

New City Hospital Staff Will Be
Under His Thumb.
Dr. Nelson Will Be a Mere Figure
head Even Though Precedent
Be Violated.
If the prearranged program goes
through, two years more of chaos and
maladministration at the city hospital
would seem to be inevitable.
Heretofore the board of corrections and
charities has contented itself with ap
ponting a city physician and putting upon
him the responsibility of selecting his
assistants, the staff and all employes of
the hospital, and then holding him re
sponsible for the successful management
of affairs there.
Nelson a Figurehead.
The new board will meet on the even
ing of July 9 for the election of a city
physician and some other officials, but
the city physician then named will have
no voice in the selection of his sub
ordinates. Mayor Ames has taken it upon
himself to name not only the city physi
cian but all those Who serve under his
direction at the hospital. He will pick
them all, from assistant city physician
down to engineers and steward, and take
upon himself the whole responsibility of
city hospital management. The doctor
has a city hospital policy as well as a
police and general municipal policy, and
he is going to have none but men of his
own faith to carry it out.
Dr. Henry Nelson, who has been prom
ised the position of city physician, has
agreed to the above arrangement in every
detail. "Yes, that is the arrangement,"
said Ur. Nelson to-day. "I am slated for
the position of city physician and I "have i
agreed with the mayor to give him the
selection of all appointees at the city
hospital under the city physician."
Doctors Are Apprehensive.
Physicians who have heard of the ar
rangement declare that it is pre-eminently
unbusiness-like and they »redict that it
j will merely result in eventual misman
agement, if not in actual chaos, at the
city hospital. They are amazed that the
mayor should exact any such terms from
his appointee and they insist that it is
a most radical departure from established
hospital custom. They predict disaster
and general public dissatisfaction. If
there is any official in the city who should
be free to select his own subordinates and j
hold them right up to a high standard of !
duty, it is the city physician, they con
tend. Under the new arrangement, they
point out that the city hospital is made I
one of the cogs in the mayor's political j
and personal machine, to be used to serve '
his political or personal ends, and that
the public interests will inevitably suffer. ,
The charter gives the city physician the
appointment of all subordinates at the city
hospital, including the assistant city
physicians, the hospital staff, and all kos
pital employes. He is required to re
port the same to the board of corrections
and charities, but it is not required that
the list be confirmed. He can discharge I
at will and appoint successors. The pur- \
pose of this arrangement is to leave the I
city physician free to surround himself
with a harmonious staff and center in him
the entire responsibility for hospital man
agement. The rule has been observed
to the letter in the past. But rarely has
the mayor or a member of the board even
so much as suggested an appointment to
to the city physician.
It is understood that Mayor Ames will
content himself with filling the places,
carrying salaries and placing a few of his
personal friends in positions on the staff,
leaving to Dr. Nelson the naming of the
rest of the staff physicians.
When appealed to in behalf of an appli
cant for an appointment at the city hos
pital under the coining regime Dr. Nel
son gives always the same answer, "Go,
see the mayor. I have nothing to do
with the matter. I haye turned all the
appointments over to him."

How an Unprincipled Bike Repairer
Tried to Make Business.
Cards of Tacks Distributed to Punc
ture Tire*—Criminal Prose-'
cation Will Follow.
The authorities believe that before
night they will have in custody .the per
sons responsible for the promiscupus dis
tribution of tacks and broken glass along
the Fifth street cycle path, and If the in
formation lodged with the clerk of the
municipal court is reliable, the proprietor
of a certain bicycle repair establishment,
together with his assistant, name un
known as yet, will be aisked to explain.
Wheelmen who had occasion to traverse
the path yesterday universally came to
grief. Bushels of broken glass had been
strewn along that route between the
courthouse and Tenth avenue S during
last night and in addition the police
picked up not less than fifty pieces of
stiff cardboard which had been perforated
with tacks and placed along the path with
the* sharp ends of the tacks uppermost.
Still more than this, the destructive
genius of the criminals, fearing that harm
enough would not be thus accomplished,
fashioned several more devices from thin
pieces of board "with tacks driven through.
These boards were about eighteen inches
by six. In the one produced before Clerk
Allen, there were fifty tacks. In the
cardboards the tacks ranged in number
from fifteen to twenty.
The arrest of the guilty ones will be
brought about, it is believed, by the testi
mony of a young, girl who lives in one
part of the double house which is occu
pied by the suspected repairer, near the
corner of Fifth street and Fourth ave
nue S.
G. R. Blood, an advertising agent who
resides at 129 Seventh avenue N, was the
first victim. Blood was riding near Fourth
avenue S last evening about 10 o'clock
when a woman on the walk accosted him,
saying: "Look out. If you ride down there
your wheel will be spoiled."
Blood imemdiately 'stopped and asked
the woman what she meant.
"Two men were along here just a little
while ago and sprinkled glass on the
path," was the response.
Just then Blood happened to notice
something falling from his wheel and
picking- it up discovered one of the pieces
of cardboard filled with tacks. Examina
tion revealed the fact that his tire had
been punctured in several places. A hunt
of a few minutes sufficed to discover half
a dozen other cards of a similar nature.
The daughter of the woman who had
i given the warning then told Blood that
| she had seen the repairer breaking the
j glass and that his assistant, a young lad
of about 17, had taken it out and placed
it on the path. She also saw the boy |
dropping the cards.
To-day Blood asked for a warrant for
the arrest of the repairer, but the infor
mation given by the girl only showed that •
! she had seen the boy place the articles on
! the path, and the county attorney accord
ingly made out a warrant for the arrest
j of. the youngster. It is expected that
when brought into court the young fellow
will tell a tale that will implicate his !
employer, for the girl also swears that |
she saw the latter make the tack-filled
boards found on the path.
The Fifth street path has been closed to
wheelmen to-day, and is being put into j
condition as rapidly as possible.
•"he municipal court officials believe' the
repairer was one of those geniuses who,
business being dull, have the wit to make <
a market for their energies. To have ■
made the job complete he should have {
printed his place of business on the card-j
board pieces, so the wheelmen could have*
located a place for repairs without diffi
A Park Policeman's Harsh Treat
ment of Three Blind Boys.
Three blind boys—H. A. Nerby, of Fari
bault; Ray Dart, of Litchfleld, son of Sen
ator Dart, and Seth Moore, who lives on
Emerson avenue N —were the victims of
police offlclousness this afternoon. Nerby
has enough sight left to see indistinctly.
Under his guidance, the other two had
visited Prospect park this morning. They
were reclining on the grass when Officer
Madden approached and ordered them to
get out of the park. They did not under
stand the nature of the summons at first
and did not readily respond.
"Get out of here," roared the man with
the star; "if you don't I'll help you out
with the club."
By that time the boys were on their
"You won't do it more than once," said
one of them indignantly.
Thereupon Madden grabbed Moore and
literally threw him out of the park. The
othere, fearing violence, stumbled aimless
ly along the path until they finally got
beyond the dead line.
They say the officer used most offensive
language and grossly insulted them. He
accused them of drunkenness and re
marked that "just because they had been
reading beer signs they needn't think
they could give him any of their lip."
Nerby and Dart are visiting with Seth
Moore. ■
Verdict of Coroner's Jury in the
James Scott Case.
A coroner's jury this morning decided
that James Scott, the lad killed- at tate
Milwaukee depot at Minnehaha Falls,
Tuesday evening, came to his death by an
accident for which the railroad company
was not responsible. The jury,'however,
recommended that the company instruct
its employes to put off all persons found
trespassing on its freight trains, and also
that trains slow up at the Minnehaha
depot. • .

But They're Flocking to Dakota
Fields Through Minneapolis.
Senator Lavayoa Say« the Harvest
. •.•• May Ketmii'e an Many an
50,000 Men. J •
Harvest hands are beginning to flock
into Minneapolis. The advance guard
from the east and from lowa arrived some
days ago and has already continued its
migration to the west. All are headed
for North Dakota and the Red River val
ley. Very many of them are said to be
the real hoboes, and lively times are pre
dicted for Fargo, Moorhead and Grand
Forks, where the army will rendezvous
for the harvest campaign.
The employment bureaus are fairly be
sieged by laborers who w.ant a touch of
farm life to round out thefr year of work.
They can get railroad work in various
parts of the country at $1.75 per day, but
won"t take it. They will take railway
work in North Dakota, but the com
panies are just as sharp as the men. They
have grown weary of shipping hundreds
of men into the country free and then
sadly watch them scatter for the grata
fields without doing a stroke of work for
their benefactors. The railways which
took hundreds and hundreds of men from
the employment agencies last year have
not sent in an order for a single man
this year. In the first place there is not
a great deal of track work going on in
North Dakota. What there is has been
given over to contractors who supplied
themselves with help early in the spring,
and have also drawn liberally from the
great army taken out last year by the
Burlington for their operations at and
about; Billings, Mont.
Mew Avoid Kansas.
Many of those who apply tor work at
the local agencies have toeen recommended
to try Kansas, but they will not consider
the advice for a moment. It's North Da
kota or nothing with them. As yet there
is no call from the grain fields for help.
Haying will not begin until about the
middle of July, and the grain, harvest
certainly not much earlier than Aug. 10.
Some of those in town will loaf about
here until that time, but the majority will
"hobo" their way to the west.
If the wheat crop s&ould be a "bumper"
this year, as all signs seem to indicate,
the prediction of the employment agents ■
is that the supply of labor will be short
and. that wages will be very high.
30,000 Men Needed.
"North Dakota will need between 30,
--000 and 50,000 men to handle this year's
crop if we realize on present prospects,"
said Senator H. E. Lavayea of Larimore,
N. D., to-day. "These men must come
from the east, and as haying will begin
in a short time they should begin to ar
rive very soon."
Senator Lavayea is staying at the West.
He is interested in the reports from Kan
sas that harvest hands are scarce. He
"The fact that the crop was short last
year and that the big army of harvest
hands which usually comes to North Da
kota was forced to go to other sections
for employment, may work against us
this year. I do not know what the yield
in the entire state will be, but prospects
generally are good. In our part of the
state I look for an average as high as we
scored in '95.
"While the situation is not exactly
alarming this question of procuring help
to handle the crop is one that demands
serious consideration by the farmers of
the northwest. We have had some very;
unsatisfactory experience in big crop
>ears, sustaining losses in many instances
because of the scarcity of men to handle \
the grain. If 'this is to be avoided this
year the northwestern farmer should
make it a point to attract as many men J
here from the east as possible. There will
certainly be work for all that will come.
The ruling wages will be about $2 per
Commissioner Jones Takes Radical
Action This Time.
Neither Will They Have Anything
to Do With the White Earth
Washington, June 28. — Commissioner
Jones of the Indian bureau has decided to
go to the bottom of the alleged frauds in
the cutting of green timber on the White
Earth reservation. To that extent J. R.
Farr of Phillips, general superintendent
of logging, has won his fight to have the
work of the past season on that reser
vation re-examined. Captain Mercer, In
dian agent at Leech. Lake, under whose
charge the logging operations were con
ducted, has been notified of the purpose
of the department, and in a telegram re
ceived at the Indian office Agent Mercer
indicated his gratification that the work
Is to be re-examined.
It apears that a lively dispute was en
gendered between Agent Mercer and Sup
erintendent Parr in regard to the amount
of illegal cutting done on the White Earth
reservation, the superintendent claiming
that more green timber had been cut by
the operators than was accounted for by
the persons in charge of the scaling and
who are under the direction of Agent
Mercer. Before he was ordered to dis
continue the scaling of timber alleged to
have been cut by trespassers, which is all
green timber not authorized to be cut in
the making of roads and in securing boom
sticks, Superintendent Farr had pro
gressed to such an extent that he claimed
to have discovered much more green
timber cut than has been reported.
Commissioner Jones and the department
officials have been at a loss to know how to
provide payment for the rescaling of the
timber, but it appears from the order now
issued that the way out of the dilemma
has been found and that the rescaling will
be done under the direction of the au- !
1 thorities here and by an entirely new j
! crew, thereby avoiding the controversy i
! which existed between the general su
perintendent of logging and Agent Mercer.

Plan Marks a New Departure Which
May Be Followed by Other
Local Concerns.
Minneapolis grain men are about to in
vade the live stock market, and local in
fluence may be expected to show to some
extent in South St. Paul from this time
on. The Van Duzen-Harrington company
of this city has been working along this
line for some time, and arrangements
i have been so far completed that the com
! pauy will have an office open for business
I —in the stock yards exchange—at South
j St. Paul, Monday.
The grain business is in a way con
i nected with the live stock business. A
I great many grain commission firms here
| receive consignments of wheat, flax and
I other grains from country shippers whose
business it is to handle and ship live
stock as well. Yet the trade is divided,
and while the local men get the benefit
of the grain business the live stock goes
to South St. Paul firms.
The Van Duzen-iHarrington company
has been investigating this feature for
some time, and has decided to go after
a share of the business. This marks a
new departure in the northwest, and it
will be of interest to note whether other
Minneapolis grain houses will follow.
Some years ago a Chicago firm of grain
commission men decided to add the cat
tle commission business to its other lines,
mi it is said that it has found the duai
arrangement very satisfactory.
Richard Hartzell, who has charge of the
matter for the Van Duzen-Harrington
company, says:
There L* no doubt that the live stock trade
represents one of the greatest sources of
wealth of the northwest, and in my opinion
this trade will ultimately grow to a place
equaling in importance that of the grain
trade. We can see no reason why St. Paul
capital should be permitted to monopolize
this trade. We do not expect to cut a dash
at the start, and are going into the new
field in a conservative way, but with suffi
cient trade in sight to insure success on the
modest lines that have been laid out. If
experience should show this to be a field
deserving development, as we believe will
be the case, there is an abundance of capital
that can be put into it. While the live
stock coming into South St. Paul is drawn
from the entire western country, including
the ranges of Montana, about one-half of all
the receipts come from Minnesota. This part
of the traffic, at least, we feel we can handle
as well as anyone.
Absorb the Attention of Judge
Kelly's Conrt in Pearson Case.
The defense in the case of Geologist
Pearson against the Great Northern rail
way began its arguments in St. Paul to
day before Judge Kelly. The entire fore
noon was devoted to the testimony and
cross-examination of Professor Samuel
Calvin of the lowa geological survey.
Professor Calvin's testimony was tech-
You can buy it at almost any
price, and if you are not partic

nical, and was calculated to upset the
scientific claims made by Pearson. The
witness illustrated his statements as to
the existence of evidence of vegetation in
the strata of rock over the Cottonwood
district by showing fossilized fern fronds,
and fossilized shells were shown to prove
esturarial conditions in the same region.
Photographs of strongly marked cliffs,
rocks and hills were also exhibited.
The witness and cross-questioner were
at odds for a little while over what con
stituted a sea level. Professor Calvin
finally admitted that the water had stood
at a particular level all over the region
in question and that the earth was thrust
above it by some interior disturbance.
It was a wordy war between the law

questioner out of his depth geologically.
In concluding his cross-questioning, Mr.
O'Brien asked the witness a direct ques

was receiving for his services. Professor
Calvin laughed and answered th. ; he did
not know.

that's no use to it, and yet it can't go
ten yards without it?"
"Give it up."
"The noise!"
