They Win in Fight Against Retail
ing Lumber Manufacturer*.
The retailers have won out in their fight
against lumber'manufacturers who sell di
rect to the trade. The matter came up
for discussion at the semi-annual meeting
of the Mississippi Valley Lumbermen's as
sociation late yesterday afternoon, and
an agreement was made whereby manu
facturers are not to sell to the consumer
where such a sale could be made by local
yards. There are, of course, limitations
to this agreement, but the manufacturers
agree to aell lumher to other than dealers
only at a ten per cent advance over the
regular retail charges, the excess to be
turned over to the secretary of the Mis
sissippi Valley association' to be by him
distributed among the yards in the neigh
borhood to which the lumber is sent. This
is looked upon as important, and will
probably curtail direct sales in a very
large measure.
The association's credit bureau was
formally authorized, and from now on the
secretary will furnish information as to
the standing of retailers whenever re
quested by an association member. Re
ports of officers showed the condition of
j the organization to be most prosperous,
and sales of lumber were reported to have
I increased fully twenty-five per cent.
The State University Classed as a
"Cnaritable" Institution.

This is a question the Minnesota courts
may be called upon to settle within the
next year.
As stated in The Journal last
Saturday, the board of control has been
furnished with legal advice at variance
with the opinion of the attorney general.
A St. Paul attorney assertß that the state
university and the normal schools are
under the board of control act, in spite of
the omission of the word "educational"
from its title. Acting on this advice, the
board may conclude to make a test case
and settle the scope of its authority.
The St. Paul man's opinion is based
wholly on the clai mthat the university
and normal schools are charitable insti
tutions. The title of the board of con
trol bill limits its operations to the
"charitable, penal and correctional" in
stitutions of the state. The legal
luminary of St. Paul classifies the schools
receiving state aid under the first head.
Decisions cited are mainly form old Eng
lish will cases, in which descendents left
property to educational instiutions,
and the wills wer contested. They
were held valid under an act per
mitting bequests to charitable institut
tions. A Kentucky case is also cited, in
which the court held a school receiving
private aid and giving more or less free
tuition to be charitable in its scope.
The state university has received
private aid, and gives free tuition, and the
St. Paul attorney thinks it would come
under the same decision. As to the
normal schools, which receive only state
aid, the question is somewhat differ
The weight of legal opinion is on the
side of Attorney General Douglas. The
bill as originally drawn did not Include
the university, or the normal schools, nor
did it exempt them. The legislature did
not consider them charitable institutions
or it would have exempted them In spe
cific terms. When the bill was amended
to include the schools for higher educa
tion, the title was not amended to cor
respond. This is held to be a fatal error

Two Mounted Officer* Who Explain
That Tliey Didn't Know It
Wai a Runaway.
Two mounted policemen aroused the ir»
of pedestrians on Nicollet avenue Monday
evening et 6 o'clock by sitting calmly on
their horses and allowing a runaway to
tear madly down the crowded thorough
fare without making the- slightest effort to
stop it. The valiant blue coats were
walking their horses up Nicollet between
Seventh and Eighth streets when tt^ey
heard a shout and interrupted their con
versation long enough to look up and see
a maddened horse harnessed to a delivery
wagon coming down the avenue on a dead
run. In the wagon was a boy, tugging in
effectively at the reins and calling to peo
ple to get out of the way.
The officers wheeled their horses toward
the curb and gave the runaway a wide
berth. As the wagon passed they turned
and gazed after it in Interested fashion,
but made no attempt to go to the driver's
assistance. Their masterly inactivity was
seen by A. A. Abbott, foreman of the Fire
Proof Door company, Twelfth avenue S
and Fourth street, who was passing on
his wheel. He dismounted and proceeded
to give the officers a piece of his mind.
Mr. Abbott is a man of unusually even
temper, but he said several things which
the blue eoats/*will probably remember for
some time to come. They attempted to
explain, in shame-faced fashion, that they
"weren't sure" the home was running
away, although the animal was galloping
madly as it passed them, and the driver
was shouting at the top of his voice for a
clear track.
An Army Officer Inspecting Cavalry
Horses at Midway.
Captain Williams, a veterinary, and as
sistant from Fort Meade have .established
a recruiting station at Midway for cavalry
horses. The captain is now at the stables
of Barrett & Zimmerman inspecting the
offerings which have been made to the
United States government. It is very dif
ficult to secure nags which come up to the
government specifications, and the dealers
have representatives all over the country
picking up likely candidates for the se
vere inspection which Captain Williams
In addition to a physical examination
the would-be cavalry horses are put
through their paces. They are ridden
about the inclosure and must show an
ability to pick up a few bits of
knowledge readily. In other words the
captain wants no dunces.
The horse which the government ac
cepts, in addition to being sound of wind
and teeth, must be a geiding of any hardy,
solid color, roan being preferred. Grays
are not wanted. The horse must be from
four to eight years old, '15% to 16 hands
high and from 950 to 1150 In weight.
Captain Williams began the inspection of
the herd yesterday and will continue until
280 head are found which will be suitable
for Uncle Sam's men with the orange
plumes to ride whether it be on the
parade ground or in a bloody charge up
some San Juan hill.
Fred Osborne Dies aa the Result of
His Fall Yesterday.

Her Municipal Lighting Statistics
of Some Local Value.
Aldermen Lei«htoii and. Power* Will
Use Detroit Figures ;In Their .
*,", ■ Lighting Agitation.
The experience of the city of Detroit In
doing its own lighting will be brought
into prominence when the time comes
for Alderman Leighton and Powers to
begin to push their scheme for a
municipal" lighting plant for Minneapolis.
Detroit invested in a municipal lighting
plant about six years ago and the experi
ment has been eminently successful from
every point of view.
Detroit claims the distinction of being I
the best lighted city in the country and
the cost is not much in excess of one-half
that of Minneapolis for the same serv
The cost per arc lamp in Minneapolis
the past two years was |108 on the all
night schedule. The same service cost in
Detroit for the year ending June 30, 1900,
$66.45 per lamp of 2,000 candle powers.
This charge included everything entering
into the cost of operation, with 4 per cent
interest on the investment added, also 3
per cent for depreciation of the plant and
due allowance for lost taxes. Deducting
from the cost per lamp certain amounts
received from rentals of poles and other
sources, the real net cost to the city is
reduced to $61.76.
There were operated that year 1,963 arc
lights, against a total of 842 in Minne
apolis last year, and the various public
buildings were lighted with 6,679 incan
descent lights. The total cost of operation
was $90,087, and. including interest on the
investment, depreciation ana lost taxes,
The total cost of the plant, including
poles, conduits, etc., was $828,088, and the
lighting commission reported in the above
year that after five years' service the
plant was as good as new.
But low price and good service is not
the most Important advantage that has
resulted to the citizens of Detroit from
municipal ownership of the electric light
plant, the commission states in its re
port: "The political health of the city has
been improved by placing one branch of
the public service beyond the reach of
franchise-seeking corporations and the at
tention of the city government is not now
distracted by the bickering and bargain
ing of such corporations eager to obtain
the privileges and the profits that may be
secured through contracts for public
Minneapolis paid last year for electric
lighting $70,050, and the total cost for ex
penses of the department were $147,399.
The cost per arc lamp per year was $108
for the all nig-ht schedule, such as is in
use in 'Detroit, and about $90 by the moon
light schedule.
Close Record to Be Kept of Detec
tive Canes—Jlr. Wheelock'a
New Title.
Superintendent of Police Fred Ames
this morning commenced to systematizo
the wor kof his department, This work
will necessitate wholesale changes in and
about headquarters. The detectives, over
whom the mayor yesterday made the col
onel immediate supervisor, will occupy
the outer office of the chief. The chief 3
secretary, Mr. Wheeldek, will be assigned
to the work of keeping close records of
all the work of the plain clothes men.
This is something that has not been done
under the present administration, only
tab reports being made by the men to
Captain King. The superintendent pro
poses to have every case, reported to the
police and assigned to the detectives,
entered properly on a large set of books
purchased to-day for this specific purpose.
This, Colonel Ames says, will enable him
to knew just where his nren are and also
what progress is being made on all cases.
Mr. Wheelock's new title will be superin
tendent of the bureau of identification.
Fred Coffin, captain of the mounted
squad x>f police, and John Stavlo, dog
license inspector, who formerly occupied
the outer office of the chief, have been
removed to the large room at the north
end of the city building, in which the

The Clay School Exhibit Will Take
-V. Place To-morrow—Evidence*
of Industry.
In the opinion of the women who have
had charge, of the instructors, of the par
ents and of the children, the first vaca
tion school in iMnneapolis has been a
great success. An exhibition of the work
which the children have done was shown
this afternoon in the Franklin school.
The girls have been instructed two morn
ings a week by Mrs. R. M. Foss, and they
bad on exhibition rugs woven in pretty
designs, dolls' hammocks in gay colors,
rattan baskets and mats, raflia mats,
boxes and baskets, tissue paper hats, and
one small girl proudly exhibited a hat of
raftia braided and sewed together. The
girls in the sewing class have made un
derthings, handkerchiefs, aprons and
patchwork. There have been about sev
enty-five girls in the class and the results
of their industry was seen on the long
tables covered with their pretty work.
Manual Training Cla»«.
The manual training classes hpve been
under the direction of J. M. Billings, as
sistant instructor in the East high
school. Over 175 boys registered at the
opening of the term and seventy-five con
tinued in the classes. Considering the
unusually warm weather and the many
enticing occupations that a boy can find
in summer, the attendance has been sur
prisingly good. The boys have been in
terested and have made many inquiries
in regard to next year. Their exhibition
included match safes, pencil sharpeners,
broom holders, spoon holders, bread
boards, corner shelves, spool holders,
plant trellises and other small articles.
One boy made a neat little wagon and an
other a windmill. Very few of the boys
knew anything about the use of tools be
fore they entered the classes, and they
have obtained information that will be of
untold value to them.
The exhibition this afternoon was an
informal affair and marked the close of
the school. A group of the women who
were interested and who made the vaca
tion school a possibility, were present and
received the visitors. The work was
spread on long tables and pinned to the
wall, and every child knew where to find
her own baskets and rugs. The children
and parents were most interested visitors,
and their comments showed that the va
cation school was a most desirable affair.
The playground was closed yesterday
noon when the flag was lowered, and the
toys and games put away for another sum
mer. The playground has been a haven
for the children in the neighborhood and
they have enjoyed the shade of the large
trees this warm weather. Many of them
took their luncheons on the warm days
and stayed until the playground was
closed for the night.
Clay School Exhibit.
The exhibition at the Clay school will
be held to-morrow afternoon from 2 un
til 6 o'clock. There has been no manual
training at the Clay vacation school', but
the girls have been as industrious as those
at the Franklin school, and they will have
some interesting work to show.
Mrs. Henry F. Brown has been invited
to show the work of the vacation schools
in the women's building at the state fair
grounds, and it will form one of the in
teresting features in the building.
The U. S. Flour Milling Co. Decree
Doesn't Cover Local Mill*.
There will be no change in the man

company neither owns nor controls the
mills operated by the Consolidated com
pany, and Judge Thomas' decree will have

That was the comment of A. C. Loring,
when seen this morning, regarding the
decree handed down in the United States
court yesterday afternoon in the case of
the Central Trust company of New York,
as trustee of the United States Flour
Milling company, against the United
States Flour Milling company, and Samuel
Thomas, A. C. Loring and Charles Kim
ball, trustees. The decree provides that
the property formerly owned by the Heck
er-Jones-Jewell Milling company, a mem
ber or the so-called milling trust, shall
be divided into two portions and that the
Trust company shall then call for bids for
the two portions. After these bids have
teen received, bids shall be requested
for the property as a whole and the prop
erty shall then be sold to the highest bid
der. The decree also provides for the
sale of all properties of the United States
Flour Milling company wherever situated.
The trustees are awarded $25,800 for their
expenses and compensation. The mort

1 Mainly About the Men in the
i - . ' Saratoga Co. .
A perfectly legitimate and. proper ques
tion is often asked as to the men who are
in control of the affairs of the Saratoga
Oil & Pipeline company. All inquiries
upon this point have been answered per
sonally but it may not be amiss to give
a few facts here.
The president of the Saratoga company
is W. E. Brice, of Mason City, lowa. He
is a director in 12 banks in the state of
Iowa; projector and builder of the lowa,
Minnesota & Northwestern railway, a line
200 miles long, running from Belle Plain,
lowa, to Blue Earth City, Minnnesota, re
cently sold to the Chicago & North-
Western system; president of the I. M.
and N. W. Townsite company, owning all
the new townsites along the line of rail
way; president of the Mason City & Clear
Lake railway (being the street railway
system of Mason City, and an interurban
line to Cedar Lake, Iowa); president of
the Brice & Ong Land Co., and a director
in the Mason City Town Lot and Improve
ment company; president of the Brice
Gas & Electric company (being the gas,
electric and hot water supply company of
Mason City, Iowa); director in the Beau
mont Trust company, of Beaumont,
Texas. Mr. Brice is the founder of the
Saratoga company, as well as its presi
dent and largest stockholder. He was in
the Beaumont oil field within three days
after the first gusher (the Lucas well),
was struck, and he has given practically
his entire time to the oil business ever
since. In an article published in the
August number of the National Magazine
upon the building of the West, by Charles
Sumner Nichols, further facts are given
regarding the president of the Saratoga
The vice president is L. A. Lydiard, city
clerk of the city of Minneapolis, who rep
resents a syndicate of Minneapolis capi
talists in the management of this com
The secretary, W. J. McAllister, and
treasurer, A. Klne, both of Mason City,
lowa, were the founders and builders of
the independent telephone system which
extends over southwestern Minnesota
and northern lowa from Minneapolis to
Fort Dodge, Mason City and other lowa
The active officers of the company have
all been on the ground at Beaumont and
understand the situation. They are giv
ing their entire time and attention to the
oil business, insuring a careful and in
telligent management. This fact, together
with the splendid showing made on Spin
dle Top (on all four sides of the Saratoga
well) practically guaranteeing a gusher
makes Saratoga stock at 30 cents a share
par value $1) the best investment that
any man or woman can make. Write for
