People are investing their money in Minneapolis property, satisfied that it is bound to be a paying investment. The Journal has a page full of real bargains in real estate. All the nurses of the city are either em ployed or resting up after hard work to ward off a general breakdown. The demand is greater than the supply, although there is no epidemic. At one hospital, where twenty five nurses are employed, only one has been disengaged for a week. A fractious horse, which William Kezalin, 2603 Madison street NE, was unhitching at his honielast night, broke and ran, knocking down and trampling upon Mr. Kezalin's 9-year-old son. One of the boy's ears was nearly severed from his head and three Tibs were broken. His condition is critical. John Wlntgell, 45 years old, a patient at the city hospital, seems to be demented. He called at hte hospital yesterday and asked for treatment fori llness whLh the examina tion of the physicians could uot find. He was given a bed, however, and plenty of care. Last night he wandered cut, with nothing but a shet about him, and was found some time later in the - basement, of the con tagious ward. THE WEATHER The Predictions.

While The Journal' 3 excursion up the Minnesota river yesterday was not one of the largest, a party of 200 people availing themselves of the trip, it proved to be a most enjoyable outing, the weather being perfect for a sail up the beautiful winding stream past Mendota, Fort Snelling and the meadow lands and so on to Shakopee. The excursion left Minneapolis in the morning on the Omaha | at 9:30 and the steamer Columbia was | boarded at St. Paul. The steamer's j course was up the Mississippi past the fort and then into the Minnesota to Shakopee, which was reached at 2:40 p. m. The Journal Newsboys' band accom panied the excursion and gave a fine pro gram and also serenaded the merchants in Shakoppee. On return the excursion left Shakopee at 3:30 over the Omaha, ar riving in Minenapolis a little after 5. It i was one of the few chances people have j to make the Minnesota trip, as the river j is rarely navigable; although it is onej of the most beautiful streams in the 1 northwest, and all those who went yes- ! terday expressed their pleasure with the day's outing. LETTER CARRIERS INVITED The Mayor Asks Them to Meet Here Next Year. Mayor Ames this morning extended an invitation to the National Association of Letter Carriers to hold their 1902 con vention in this city. The local association is very anxious to entertain the national organization here next year, and has been at work for some time creating a senti ment for Minneapolis. It has received assurance of the support of several influ ental cities, and the chances of securing the convention are excellent. The mayor's letter was sent to the president of the national association and will be presented by him at the convention which meets in September at Chattanooga. Servant Girla Are Here.

TWO HOURS' FIGHT Aldermen Finally Decide to Buy the Holly Pumps. NEW N. SIDE PUMP PROPOSED The Water Committee and the City Knglneer Instructed to Look Into the Plan. After a two-hours' struggle the contract for furnishing the city with two 15,000,000 --gallon pumps was awarded at last night's council meeting to the Holly Manufac turing company of Lockport, N. Y. This was a victory for Messrs. Lane, Schoon maker* and Nelson, signers of the majority report of the water works committee. Aldermen Merrill and McCune favored the Allis-Chalmers pumps on their record for capacity and efficiency and economy of operation, as attested by the city en gineer and the chief engineer of the water works department, but couldn't make out a case that would convince the majority of the council. The other mem bers of the committee argued for the Holly pump that it was "the strongest, best and smoothest running," and they laid claim to an indorsement by Chief Engineerl Bergstrom and the engineer at the Chest nut Hill station in Boston, where both styles of pumps are in operation. Aldermen Merrill, McCune and Powers, who have given the pump question much thought, presented a long array of fig ures to uphold their stand. The other fellows Insisted, however, that their case was all theory, vtfifle they, on their part, visited the various pumping stations in person and saw for themselves. Their 1 faith was not to be shaken by mere fig ures. Reference Is Defeated. The oratory all in, and no one convinced against his original opinion, Alderman Holmes moved that the matter be referred to a committee of one from each warti, for further consideration. The Holly champions wouldn't stand for this, how ever, and voted the motion down by a vote of 15 to 10. The majority report rec ommending the award of the contract to the Holly company was then adopted, 17 to 8. Alderman Powers was then recognized, by the chair to give notice of reconsid eration at the next meeting. Alderman Lane was on his feet at the same time, however, ready to move a reconsideration right on the spot, and, when turned down by the chair, appealed from the decision, gained his point by a vote of 17 to 7, and then clinched the vote beyond hope of re consideration. An executive veto is the only possible Intervention now, and as the few friends the mayor has in the council are all in cluded among the majority therte is little chance that he will interfere in the pro gram. A study of the vote awarding the con tract to .the Holly company shows the in teresting fact that every democrat in the council followed the lead of Alderman Lane. The vote was as follows: Nays—Chatfleld, Merrill, S. E. Adams, Holmes, McCune, Powers, A. S. Adams, President Jones—B. Yeas —Foell, Ryan, Lane, Mumm, Rand, N. J. Nelson, Main, McLaskey, McCoy, Lar'son, Sibley, Dwyer, Peterson, Peter Nelson, Castle, Sutherland, Schoonmaker —17. Another North Side Pomp, Alderman Powers offered a motion that the city ergineer be instructed to make soundings and other investigations as to the feasibility and advisability of imme diately installing another pump of either ten or fifteen million gallons daily capac ity at the North Side pumping station and report back to the council. On motion of Alderman Rand the matter was referred to the waterworks committee and city engineer. At the request of City Engineer Sub lette, a committee comprising one alder man from, each ward was appointed to be present at a flnal test of the crematory to take place next Thursday, before settle ment is made with the patentee. A communication was received from the city engineer stating that on account of the scarcity of men and the demand for good men at $2 and $2.50 a day of ten hours' work, he would request that he be given permission to work all crews nine hours a day during the month of August, to be paid at the rate of $1.75 for eight hours' work, which would mean $1.97 a day. The request of Mr. Sublette was granted. MAY PDNCIUE PROOFS HOMESTEADERS A BIT ANXIOUS Special Agents Front Washington in the Weit Investigating Proofs on Claims. There are sundry young men in Min neapolis who are interested in the move ments of the special agents sent out from Washington to investigate the claims of persons to a right to make finals proofs on government lands and the merits of their proofs. During the past few years the move ment for government lands in the Da kotas has been steady. People in vari ous parts of the northwest began to real ize all at once that a quarter section of prairie soil would soon have a value, and locaters did a good business. As a re sult hundreds' of filings have been made and in most instances they have been ac companied by some investment. About six years back land contests were less frequent. The single man fil ing on a quarter section of government land erected his "shack," fitted it out witb a cheap stove and came back in six months to see if it was still there. A visit every six months was generally counted all that was necessary. But now homestead land is getting to be a scarce article, and the young man who lives in town and has a "claim" that he visits once in six months frequently finds on one of the visits that his prize quarter section has been jumped. The law provides that the single man must show his intention to make the homtstead really his home. He must havi- a habitable dwelling instead of a "shack" with cracks in the walls that will admit stray rabbits. In addition to the sheet iron stove he must have his clothes in his prairie home. Then he can look after the farm every six months and be absent long periods, but his good in tentions must be manifest. Many unmarried persons have made final proof, within the past year, and complaints of fraudulent proof, are be coming frequent. These the government agents are investigating. They draw the fine line when it comes to evidence and many are wondering if they can get in side Lue line. Servant Girls Are Here. Everybody seems to get them. Adver tise in The Journal.

WON'T AFFECT DS Diverting of Coarse Grain Shipments to the Southwest. THE MARKET HERE IS SAFE Minneapolis Will Have All the Coarse Grains She Can Handle a.nd Lot* of Wheat. Local grain men scout the idea advanced by a St. Paul paper, that the diverting of coarse grain shipments to the south west from South Dakota, Nebraska and southern Minnesota will be large enough to affect the importance of Minneapolis as a grain center. The drought has created a demand for coarse grains and feed in Kansas and Nebraska in addition to the demand which usually comes from Colorado. With a shortage in the corn crop of the south west It is fair to presume that corn will be shipped in that direction rather than northward. The oate crop of southern (Minnesota is large and will undoubtedly be handled in Minneapolis. In addition to that the big crop of oats in North Dakota is likely to furnish a surplus to be hand led at this point. The indications are that the barley crop, which is of supe rior quality, will be chipped east for malt ing purposes and much of it is likely to pass through Minneapolis; while screen ings and.other feed will be shipped to the southwest from this city. Secretary Rogers of the chamber of commerce says that the diverting of coarse grain shipments from sections of South Dakota, lowa and Nebraska would not under any conditions ..fleet Minneapo lis enough to speak of, and especially not this season when there is sure to be a big increase in the amount of wheat to be handled here. ANOTHER MISS DAVIS A Municipal Court Prisoner Gave tbe Wrong Address. Jennie Davis, who was fined for as sault and battery in the municipal court yesterday, gave a wrong address and thereby caused some embarrassment to a lady of the same name who resides at the number given in court. Friends of Miss Davis, of 2201 Hennepin avenue, knew when they read of the case in yes teray's Journal that there was some mistake, for the lady in question, not only has no step sister such as figured in the case, but is a person well-known to be above implication in a case like that of yesterday. While yesterday's item was thus absurd on its face to those who know Miss Davis, this explanation is voluntarily made in order to correct the impression which may have been created in the minds of strangers. The fact that the woman who was in court yesterday gave her address as 2201 Hennepin avenue, was carefully verified before yesterday's publication was made, but at that time no mendacity was sus pected. RAILROAD RUMBLES. TO THE CANADIAN BOUNDARY Bids for Construction of Duluth f & Rainy Lake Road Are Ready. Special to The Journal. Duluth, Minn., Aug. 3.—Bids for the; construction of the first twenty miles of the Duluth, Virginia & Rainy Lake rail road are to be opened next week and the work is to be done the coming winter. The road will be gradually pushed to the Canadian boundary and every mile will \ add millions of feet of timber to this market. There are supposed to be several billion feet tributary to the road, in fact, the single firm that is back of the enter prise is i owner or ; in control of g about 2,000,000,000 feet on. the proposed road. ; The survey has reached the north side of the Tower and Itasca county road and | is being pushed northward rapidly. It will be at the boundary by winter. The road starts at Virginia in 58-17, runs through the. center of 61-18, touches the west end of Vermillion lake, tapping the pine around it, crosses Elbow and Pel ican rivers, two large streams with ex tensive drainage, runs between Ash and Black Duck lakes, cuts across the west end of Kapitogema lake and on to Rainy lake. It touches, therefore, an enormous extent of territory that is reached by rivers running through pine country. It is tapping much fine agricultural land also and will be a valuable road. WESTERN R. R. ACCOUNTS Eastern. Railway- Officials Like J. J. Hill's Bookkeeping. Daniel Willard, assistant to ' President Fred D. Underwood, of the Erie, who has been in the twin cities for several days studying the accounting methods of west ern roads, left for the east last night. Mr. Willard says that President Under wood ■will recommend the accounting and auditing system developed by James J. Hill, of the Great Northern. Five other eastern railway officials are In St. Paul investigating the accounting systems of the Great Northern and North ern Pacific roads. They are: Controller G. Jones, of the Reading sys tem, with his secretary, W. B. Taylor; Auditor W B. Scott, of the merchandise traffic department of the same road, and General Auditor W. W. Stevenson of the Central of New Jersey, with J. A. Taylor, auditor of traffic of the same road. Northern Pacific Common. New York, Aug. 3.—Two hundred shares of Northern Pacific common sold on the Stock Exchange yesterday at $35 (seller ten days). The last previous sale was made at 118 and occurred July IT, the day that J. P. Morgan announced his selection of five new directors for the Northern Pacific. The previous price to this had been 150, the figures at which many shorts settled with the rival syndicate.!.. The highest panic price for this stock was $700 "regular" and $1,000 "cash." To-day's transaction was done for foreign account, and the "seller ten" feature was to enable the delivery of the stock by shipment. Railroad Notes. The passenger department of the Great Northern has just issued a second edition of its big advertising book, "Across America." The Great Western is reported to have or dered twenty extra large locomotives. It is thought that the striking Canadian Pacific maintenance of way employes may win. The struggle is reaching an acute stage cmd is having a serious effect on both passen ger and freight business. G. W.»« Fine Construction Work. The Great Western will construct Its new branches to Sioux City and Omaha to a max imum grade of one-half of 1 per cent, a trifle more than twenty-six feet to the mile. The route from Fort Dodge to Omaha will be nearly an air line, and that to Sioux City will be a straight-away stretch without regard to rough country. The low maximum grade will necessitate an immense amount of construc tion work. L» H. Stiles Promoted. L. H. Stiles, formerly traffic manager of the Liuluth, Red Wing & Southern, has been ap pointed division freight and passenger agent of the Great Western, in charge of the Gan non Valley line. Red Wing to Mankato, and the Duluth, Red Wing & Southern. The ap pointment became effective yesterday. Mr. Stiles will have headquarters at Red Wing. S. F. «fc >. to Be Absorbed. The announcement that General Baggage Agent S. A. Smart of the Great Northern will take charge of the baggage department of the Spokane Falls & Northern and of the Kootc nai Valley, roads is taken as an indication that the two roads will soon be absorbed by the Great Northern. Horace G. Bart Here. President Horace G. Burt of the Union Pa cific and a party of well-known railway offi cials passed through the twin cities yesterday, en route to Brainerd, where they will spend two weeks trout fifhing. Omaha Traiu Service. The Omaha has established a dally train service between St. Paul and Minneapolis and Redwood Falls and Sleepy Eye, by the addition «* » Snndav train. MABINI IS CLEVER Aguinaldo's Secretary of State Still Has High Ambitions. HE'S IN CHARGE OF CAPT. SHAW The Captain Writes That Mabini la an Educated, Brilliant Man With a Future. A letter received by an old schoolmate, from Captain Melville J. Shaw, U. S. M. C, dated at the Presidio of Asan, Island of Guam, June 15, says: I am in command of the prison here, where Mabini, formerly Aguinaldo's secretary of state, and usually credited with being the brains of his government, and ether Filipino prisoners are confined. It is much pleasanter here than at Agana, the capital, and I have been enjoying the sea breezes. I find the sea bathing excellent and this, together with horseback riding and daily "setting-up" drill, enables me to keep in pretty fair physical condition, although the long sojourn in a tropical climate is rather sapping my vital ity. I take a nap every afternoon, and have made up my mind not to be killed off, no matter how long I am obliged to stay out here. I converse freely in Spanish with Mablni and the others. Mabini is trying to learn Eng lish, and as he is a highly educated and very brilliant man, he la making rapid progress. He is only about 36 or 37 years old, Is extremely ambitious, and it may be that he will occupy some important position in the Philippines when peace is established. He is very high In Aguinaldo's esteem, and considering our government's policy of clem ency and encouragement of native talent, it looks also as if he might have a bright future. I should not be surprised if these prisoners were pardoned soon. They are very hopeful, and eager for accounts of the prog ress of affairs in Luzon. They regard every surrender there as hastening their return to their families. AN HONOR TO THE G. A. R. IS THE JOHN A. RAWLINS POST Its Indorsement of Judge Gil Tor rance for Commander-in-Cliief Has Great Weight. It Is Rawlins Post of Minneapolis that proposes to furnish the successful can didate for commander-in-chief of the Grand Army of the Republic, in the per son of Judge Ell Torrance. With his en viable army record, his great worth in the walks of civil life and his magnifi cent loyalty to the Grand Army of the Republic — the organization that has since its inception received his best love, —his friends go to Cleveland to present his claims with such unbounded enthusi asm that they are sure they will inspire such support as to secure success. It was Rawlins Post, composed of many of our most respected and leading citi zens, that went to the Chicago encamp ment one year ago to win most hearty applause from thousands who witnessed its faultless marching in the grand pa rade and to receive the verdict of the general of our armies, Nelson A. Miles, that, "no body of regular troops was su perior to the John A. Rawlins post." The post at Chicago gained a place at the front with the most noted posts in the United States. It represented Minneapo lis in such a manner as to reflect only the highest credit. The post acquitted itself with such soldiderly bearing that it won and brought back to Minneapolis the prize banner, awarded to the best post in the state. Rawlins post ■will go to Cleveland -with a uniform very similar to that worn in Chicago and in the recent Memorial Day parade. It will be accompanied by the American band of Chicago, which con tributed bo much to its success of last year. It will have its headquarters at the Garlock hotel on Euclid avenune, •where all its members will find a pleas ant, quiet home during the week of the encampment. It is very fitting that all the veterans of the civil war, who can possibly be present, should enjoy this, the thirty-fifth reunion held since the war of the rebellion. Every loyal citizen of Minneapolis and of the northwest will gladly bid the veterans Godspeed to this happy gathering, a full complement of pleasure while there and a safe return with the banner of victory.

Children/ 15c. Grand Street Parade 11 a. m., Monday, PICKED UP AT HOTELS North Dakota Elks are coming home from the Milwaukee convention in singles. Frank V. Kent of Grand Porks, a prominent flicker tail member of elkdom, was here last even- Ing. For once the Grand Forks delegation comes home without a prize. "We could have won out," declared Mr. Kent, '"if there had been anything to compete for in the class familiar to us. Grand Forks has made its record at Elk conventions on attendance and distance traveled. There was nothing offered in that line at Milwaukee. Grand Forks alone had forty Elks at the Milwaukee celebration. North Dakota Elks will undoubtedly attend the Salt Lake City convention next year in good numbers. Grand Forks is preparing to send a big delegation to the K. P. convention at San Francisco." "Two things agitate the minds of North Dakota people; crops, and .how to keep the Red river water supply down to normal in those springs when the rain is steady and the snow has been deep. We have a prohibition state and ordinarily its water supply is good. In May and June, '96, it rained forty days and forty night exactly—the only time history shows that to have happened since the flood. The excessive rail's this year really saved the crops from the attack of hot weather that has just been called off. Now and then a spring comes in the Red River valley when dwellers in low places must take to the hills. It is this that the people want to stop and for which they will petition con gress. "North Dakota this year reminds me of the old days. She has her sporting blood warmed. A fast article of baseball is being played. There are fans in that country who think that the Western league teams are none too fast for us. As for us old timers we lost our 20 --cent pieces on foot races years ago." "There's a big change in Dakota towns," said Fred W. Clayton, the veteran salesman. "Dakota is not the Dakota that certain writers described in eastern papers when the grasshoppers, drought and frost were nt bat by turns years ago. The Dakota of to day is rapidly becoming one of the big wealth producers of the nation. Next to Kansas I do not believe that any part of this country has been more maliciously libeled in years past than Dakota. No matter what affliction struck the west, the eastern newspaper editor, whose knowledge of geography was limited, always blamed it to Dakota. It has been a long pull but Dakota is on top at last. "There have never existed a more hospit able people than the pioneers of Dakota. When the commercial tourist was making his visits by stage and long team drives he was. usually the guest of the city when he arrived in town. At most stops it meant a stay of at least a day and many were the Instances where a ball was given to celebrate the oc casion. The 'drummer' was expected to bubble over with good stories and news of the outside world. While he was being enter tained he was expected to do some entertain ing himself. The old time road salesman was never found wanting in that particular. "Some of the old time scenes of activity now have nothing to boast of but history. There is Bartlett in North Dakota, which was at one time the terminus of the Great North ern. It gave great promise for a year or so, but its officials got into a row with the Great Northern and Lakota was platted. The old depot at Bartlett was burned but a few years ago. It was a unique structure, lacking paint and beauty, but when the Great Northern was building it saw some hot times. President Hill attempted to move it when he decided to make Bartlett a hamlet instead of a Chi cago, but General Standish, the people's apostle, stopped him with an injunction. Devils Lake was a warm spot always. It has become an educational center in more recent years, with the only Chautauqua assembly in the northwest. It had a select coterie in early days. There were enough lawyer* there at one time to handle the business of the entire territory. Two of them were good at the 'bear dance,' and on Saturday night In the 'corner club,' Jummie and the "Bear* would dance. The 'bear, 1 done up in a big buffalo coat, was a good imitation. During the early days of the town, a social organiza tion was formed. At Its first dancing party there were twelve men and one woman pres ent. The woman was the lone kitcQen artist at the hotel in which the dance was held. ITESMTM I*™* : ([FORMERLY BURKES.) , •;, ' ' EUROPEAN PLAN.

"Down in lowa," remarked George 3. Powlison of Dea Moines, "it is a betting year. Tho whole state is either for or against Cum mings. Old timers tell me that there has never been a convention in which more in terest has been taken thus far than the coming convention at Cedar Rapids. Cum mins has some enthusiastic supporters and his defeat would mean a lot of disappointed persons. The opposition pins its faith on its ability to manipulate the convention. lowa merchants are very well satisfied with the business they are doing." PEACE IN SIGHT Tonka Bay Residents to Enjoy More Quiet Times. Wholesale arrests of blind piggers at Lake Minentonka this week seem to in dicate that the sheriff is in earnest in his declaration that illegal liquor selling must cease. In spite of certain criti cisms made by lake residents ,the pros pects for law enforcement give no one greater satisfaction than the officials of the Milwaukee & St. Louis road, which has been carrying pienfc parties to Tonka Bay. The road has not felt that it could afford to turn away the large volume of business offered by the Sun day picnics of various organizations, but has quietly been doing what it could to insure peaceful and law-abiding gather ings. That there should have been cause for complaint appears to have been due largely to the reckless contempt of arrest on the part of the blind piggers, to whom ordinary restrictions meant nothing. At all events the picnic seffson at Tonka Bay closes with an excursion to morrow by the boot and shoe workers, and for the remainder of the season, resi dents at Lake Park will probably have no cause for complaint.
