Dr. Waldenstrom, the great religious leader of Sweden, is preparing to visit America this fall, and his itinerary in cludes Minneapolis and other cities in the northwest. Dr. Waldenstrom is the most prominent figure in the religious body known as the "Mission Friends," and com mands a great influence. Moreover, he is a man of much learning and an eloquent speaker. In political life he is equally prominent, having a seat in the first chamber of the Swedish riksdag, where he is much respected. His chief attention is, however, given to the high school at Gene, of which he is principal. Dr. Waldenstrom visited America in 1889, coming as far west as Minneapolis. In that year he received the degree of doctor of divinity from Yale. It is to attend the bicentennial celebration of Yale that he comes to this country. Ac cording to the Stockholm Morgonbladet, he will leave Liverpool on Oct. 1. WHITEHORNE WILL RETURN His Attorney Says He Will Face the Charges.

BASIS OF AGREEMENT Said to Have Been Formulated by Warring Board**. Differences between the board of con trol and the state normal board are grafl ually nearlng adjustment. There has been no meeting between the two bodies, but the reply of the normal board to the board of control's objections was received to day by the latter department. It is un derstood to embody a proposition on which the two boards can come to an agree ment. Three Men In a. Boat.

Hill, was arraigned, but was allowed until to-morrow to consult an attor ney and make a plea. THE CRIME BELT Weitern Man. Does Not Hesitate to Locate It Out There. Washington Star. "We've heard a good deal of late about the corn belt, the arid belt and the min eral belt," said a western sheriff re cently. "But it seems to me that some attention should be paid to me that some the crime belt. It is as clearly marked from the ©ritish line to (Mexico as any old belt, and produces a crop which is never falling and always commands wide public attention at harvest time. If you will take a map of the United States and draw your finger from the northern line of Montana at about the center down across western Wyoming into Colorado and eastern Utah, through New Mexico and Arizona, and then to the Rio Grande, you will follow roughly the territory I include in my crime belt. If you want to you can go on south of the Rio Grande through Chihuahua and the other Mexi can flfcates, dear down to Oxaca, and you "will rfot get far away from it, but I don't know so much about that country as I do about our own territory. "I "would even commence this crime belt up in the British country somewhere around Calgary or McLeod, for those places have been in the past, and are yet to a certain extent, the rendezvous for some of the most expert horse thieves the ■world has ever seen. South of there is the Piegan country. Those Indians have been known as the most wonderful horse stealers among the red men, and nearly all of them are experts." MEANS OF IDENTIFICATION. Leslie's Weekly. "Are these your clothes or mine?" asked the athletic young man of his wife. "Look in the hip pocket," was the re ply. "If it's smelling salts, they're mine; if It's brandy, they're yours." STOP IN FLOUR CITY Eastern Clergymen Stop to See Minneapolis Sights ON TNEIR WAY TO 'FRISCO Special of Eleven Cars Left This Morning;— Bishop Huntinutou Spends Day Here. The Soo road at 9:80 yesterday sent out a Raymond Whitcomb special of eleven cars laden with clergymen and ; prominent laymen of the Episcopal church \ who arc on their way to attend the Epis copal convention to be held in San Fran cisco next month. The train was under the care of H. M. Lewis, representing the j road, and R. H. Stewart and C, A. Cook of I the excursion company, and was made up i of a giant locomotive just from the shops, a baggage car, a tourist car, two diners and seven Pullmans. Altogether there were over 150 persons on the train, many -of whom arrived in the city Sunday j over the Milwaukee road and spent the day here. They will make stops at Banff and Glacier on their way west. Bishop William Lawrence, of Massa chusetts, a friend of Rev. Mr. Thomas, of All Saints church, occupied Mr. Thomas' I pulpit last evening and Bishop McVickar ' of Rhbde Island In the morning. Another delegation arrived from the east this morning and will go on west to-morrow morning. They are under the care of A. O. Hewitt and F. K. M. Jones ! of the excursion company. With this j party Is Bishop W. R. Huntington of New j York and his daughter, Mrs. Leverett I Bradley of Philadelphia and Rev. Alexan der Mackey-Smith, Washington, D. C, who are traveling in a private car. Toward Christian Union. Dr. Huntington said to-day that the amendment which he presented at the last general convention empowering a bishop to take under his charge a congregation which does not employ the common prayer book is a step toward Christian union. A change in the constitution requires the consideration Of two conventions of a matter of the kind and the vote was so nearly unanimous three years ago that he expects the amendment to pass finally at the San Francisco session. Dr. Hunting ton mentioned the active work which the late Rev. J. J. Faude of Minneapolis had done in behalf of this change. "The Idea," said Dr. Huntington, '"is to bring the Episcopal church Into harmony with | what is known as the Chicago-Lambeth platform of church unity, better known as '. the Quadrilateral, which sets forth four essentials of church unity, viz: Accep- ! j tance of the holy scriptures; primitive | creeds, the apostles' and Nicene; the two j sacraments ordained by Christ, the holy communion and baptism; historical epis | copate. Dr. Huntington would not discuss other j : changes which will come up. He spent a ■ part of the day going about the city, and j expressed his appreciation of the beauties of Minneapolis and the courtesy of its people. A Short Convention. The majority of the delegates believe that the convention will last sixteen days rather than twenty-three as heretofore. Bishop Brewster, speaking on the sub ject of divorces and remarriages, said he believed that the church laws on this subject would be made more stringent, so as not to permit the remarriage of either party after divorce. The prevalence of divorces and the ease with which they were secured would force the church to take some initiative against the practice; those wQo believe in divorces would not take the step and others were too little interested to bring about uniform divorce laws; it therefore remained for the churches to take the matter up. To-morrow Rev. and Mrs. Mac Lean, Mrs. C. J. Gutgesfell and Mr. and Mrs. F. O. Osborne of St. Paul will leave for the coast. Mrs. W. B. Folds and Mrs. Hector Baxter will go west with Miss Emery of New York, who is at the he.ad of the Women's Auxiliary. Bishop McVickar does not believe that the deputies who voted for Bishop Hunt ington's plan before will be willing to per mit its final passage. The bishop does not believe that there will be any change \ in the name of the church! It has been proposed that in the future the Protestant Episcopal church be called the American Catholic Church of America. Opposition to the word Catholic has shown itself, and perhaps the word Protestant will be dropped from the present name of the church. Dr. C. S. Olmstead, the poet of Philadel phia, preached at St. Andrew's church yes terday and at the county jail in the after noon. Significant in connection with the handling of the Episcopal delegations is the fact that Minneapolis is made the one important stop in the middle west. BUILT BY LUNATICS Work on a Railroad by Men of Un sound Minds. New York Herald. To find a land where lunatics are suc cessful artisans, tillers of the soil and builders of railways, one needs to travel no farther than to Willard, in Seneca county. In the Willard state hospital for the insane the inmates make their own clothing and shoes, manufacture brooms and tinware and perform much of the ordinary labor of the institution. They work the farm of 1,200 acres which is con nected wkh the institution, and raise all the food necessary for the hundreds of patients there, besides putting up enough canned fruit to supply all the other state insane asylums. But the greatest work performed by the patients at Willard was the building of a railroad which connects j it with the Lehigh Valley road, six miles i distant. Nearly all the actual work in : the building of this railway was done jby the lunatics, and done well. This idea j of giving to the inmates of the institution I steady work, and as much of It as possi ble out of doors, has had a beneficial ef fect upon them. In the Pennsylvania hospital for the in sane the inmates do some creditable work in modeling in clay, producing pot tery and busts of really good workman ship and artistic design. In Great Britain and some other European coun tries a system of reasonable work for the inmates of insane asylums has been in troduced with excellent results. The first institution for the treatment of in sanity as a disease was established in this country through the efforts of Benjamin Franklin in 1751. England had no such institution until forty-three years later. Great changes have been made in the treatment of the insane in the last fifty years. Half a century ago 40 per cent of the patients were under physical re straint. Now it is said that there are only about 1 per cent so restrained. Not a Numerous Revolt. Pittsburg Dispatch. The total number of Americans who left that London hotel because it refused to ex clude the colored bishops is stated to be four.

GEN, This Important Appointment Will Be Made Soon by Commander Torrance. Judge Ell Torrance, commander-in chief of the G. A. R., who attended the : funeral o* President McKinley at Waih- I ing<on following the close of the national encampment at Cleveland, has returned to the city. While profoundly grateful for the high j honor conferred upon him by the veterans I of the union army, Judge Torrance is also jigratlfied over the importance which Min neapolis will assume as the headquarters of the G. A. R. Certain matters of detail remain to be adjusted by the council of administration, but it is practically cer ! tain that the judge's elevation means that the national headquarters will be estab lished here. The new commander-in-chief announced this morning that the next adjutant gen eral of the national G. A. R. would be ap pointed from the department of Minne -1 sota, and that the appointment would.be made soon. The council of administration is a some what unwieldy body, composed of the com mander-in-chief, senior vice commander, junior vice commander, adjutant general, quartermaster general and judge advocate. Of these six general officers, the com mander-in-chief has the appointment of tke three last named. To the administra tive council is also added one represen tative from each of the forty-live depart ments in the country. No meeting of this body will be held until the next national encampment. In the meantime the busi ness of the order will be transacted by the executive committee, consisting of the commander-in-chief, adjutant general, quartermaster general and seven members, also appointed by the commander-in chief. This executive committee will soon be named and its first work will be the selection of the next encampment city. Judge Torrance is deeply touched by the manner in which his election was brought about. While he was sure of those who had pledged their support previous to the Cleveland gathering, but little general campaigning had been done in his behalf. On the floor of the encampment the con test for the exalted position was spirited in the extreme, but was characterized by the best of good feeling, and the results of the first ballot, which favored Judge Torrance, was a surprise to all except those who knew the loyalty which existed in the ranks for the Minnesota man. A reception will be tendered to Judge Torrance next Friday evening at Morgan Post hall by comrades from all the posts in the city and members of the auxiliary orders. A feature of the reception will ' be a tribute to the late John P. Rea, the first Minneapolis man to be chosen to rep resent the Grand Army of the Republic. M. C.S TO SEE THE PINES THEY WILL COMB NEXT WEEK Monday Will Be Spent in Minneap olis, Then They'll Take to the Woods. Congressman McCleary passed through Min neapolis yesterday en route for home, coming direct from Washington. Mr. McCleary says that the postponed congressional junket to northern Minnesota will occur positively next week. The following congressmen are ex pected: Cannon of Illinois, chairman of the appropriations committee; Van Voorhees of Ohio, member o* same; Sherman of New ■York, chairman of the Indian affairs commit tee; Curtis of Kansas, member of same; La cey of lowa, of the public lands committee, and several others. Members of the Minnesota delegation will go down to Chicago Saturday night, meeting the eastern party Sunday. They will reach the twin cities Monday and spend the day | here. Monday evening all will leave for the pine woods. It is expected to spend an entire week look ing over the proposed site of the Minnesota national park, and then the entire party will go to Sault Ste. Marie to inspect the canal there, returning to the twin cities before dis banding. Mr. McCleary was very much impressed with President Roosevelt's regard for Minne sota, expressed in an interview with three members of the Minnesota delegation Satur day morning. Said Mr. McCleary to-day: "President Roosevelt feels very kindly to ward Minnesota. It was here that he made his first public speech in the campaign whieb mad* him vice president, and it was here that his last speech as vice president was made." Spanish in the Hh*h Schools President T. F. Quinby of the board of pdii(>f>ti<~>n received yesterday a letter from M. E. Bunnlaugh, commissioner of edu cation in Rico, fortifying him in his opinion that the present and coming trade conditions of the country call for the addition of tb.e study of Spanish to the high school curriculum. The Porto Rlcan commissioner says: I certainly urge ttat Spanish be made a p.art of the curriculum of the high schools of our great industrial centers. We now have more than 175,000,000 people under our flag who speak Spanish. They will do so for years to come. We have our South American republics with increasing trade and concern to us.

MORE LOCOMOTIVES ARE NEEDED Growing Bueiine«s of the Road De mauds It-Some Striking Figures. The Northern Pacific's annual report to be issued Saturday will show that in in crease of equipment the road has made a long jump. When the road was taken over from the hands of the receiver, Sept. 1, 1896, it owned 574 locomotives. Up to Nov. 1, 1900, 114 new locomotives had been added, or an increase of 19.9 per cent. Since that time many more locomotives have been added, bringing the total in crease up to about 22 per cent. The num ber of new passenger cars up to Novem ber was 144, or 32.9 per cent. The total number at that time was 582. The total number of freight cars at the time was 25,530, an increase since 1896 of 7,098, or 39.4 per cent. The increase in miscella neous equipment was 40.2 per cent. The increased horse power of the locomotives is 62.2 per cent, by reason of the pur chase of heavier engines. Big Freight Loads. The average train load of revenue freight Increased in the same period 69.57 per cent, or from 193.52 to 328.16 tons, which is a very remarkable gain for such c short period. The report of the land department says that instead of holding the lands at prices which were high as compared with the prices of adjoining government lands, the practice of selling at much reduced rates has been vigorously carried out with great success, thereby reducing the company'e taxes, stopping the interest on the land grant bonds retired and increasing the population and tonnage tributary to the railroad system. The acreage of the lands granted by the United States to the Northern Pacific has been reduced over 34 per cent, from about 34,000,000 acres to about 20,261,161 acres. The sale in acres by states for 1901 is as follows: Minnesota, 25,397; North Dakota, 1,278,584; Montana, 526,567; Idaho, 88,185; Washington, 789,058; Oregon, 37,959; Wisconsin, 80; Little Falls, S. D., lands, 168; St. Paul and Duluth lands, 11,461. Total acres sold, 2,757,443. Area remaining unsold: In Wisconsin, 592; Minnesota, 103,942; L. F. & D. lands, 26,829; St. Paul and Duluth lands, 106,029; North Dakota, 45,012; Idaho, 1,646,461; Montana, 13,041,746; Washington, 5,077,340; Oregon, 4,999. Total, 20,261,161. Bridge Improvements. During the year 59.7 miles of new side tracks were constructed. Three hundred &jid eighty bridges have been replaced, 324 permanently, end 56 by timber bridges. A total of 286 bridges were replaced by embankments, making a total of 29;922 lineal feet. The total lineal feet in bridges replaced represented 6.25 miles. On June 30, 1901, there were in existence 3,492 bridges, aggregating 88.9 miles. General Manager W. G. Pearce says in his report that business is such that it is evident additional locomotives and cars , must be purchased in the near future. TAWNEY HOME AGAIN He Met the New President— '' Interest* Undisturbed. Special to The Journal. . . ■ Wlnona, Minn., Sept. 24.—Congressman Tawney arrived home from Washington : this morning. He 'called on President Roosevelt on Saturday and in conversa tion the president said he was glad he had an opportunity at the Minnesota fair publicly to indorse and express sympathy : with the policy of President McKinley at a time when there was Ino thought of his being called on to assume the duties of president, and that his statement at .Buf falo on taking the oath was largely a reiteration of what he had said in Min nesota. - Mr. Tawney says the utmost confidence exists among all the senators and repre sentatives in the president's ability to conduct the affairs of the ■ government satisfactorily and successfully, and that the industrial and financial Interests in the. east apprehend no danger from the change. ■ . . .. | Special Agent Gutterson has investi gated nine rural free delivery routes |in the first district and reported favorably on each. Mr. Tawney expects all will be established by the first of December. New Building: for an Academy. Special to The Journal. St«rgi3, S. D., Sept. 24.—Preparations are being made for the laying of the corner stone of the new building that is in course of con struction at St. Martin's academy in this city. Bishop O'Gorman of the South Dakota dio cese will have charge of the exercises. The building will cost about $20,000. era who can speak Spanish. In the future, very soon, hundreds of our leading indus trial and mercantile concerns must have Spanish correspondents and agents able to care for the growing Spanish commerce knocking at our ports. Spanish is still a great commercial language. Our trade must more and more move from north to south, south to north. We can and we do produce almost everything a temperate zone can pro duce. We must look for a north and south development of commerce. This is possible only as we train men in the language of this commerce. I think it is an evident mat ter that we need this language also to un derstand our own history from this time on. I need not add that Spanish has all the disciplinary value that is possessed by other cognate tongues, and I am confident that it will be wise to incorporate it into the curri culum of your city high school. TUESDAY EVENING, SEPTEMBEK 24, 1901. A PASTOR'S CHOICE Rev. J. G. Morrison's Marriage Causes Dissension in His Church. ME MAY TAKE UP OTHER WORK Some of His Parlshoners Were A bom to Ask for His Transfer. But for the determination of Rev. J. G. Morrison of the Franklin Avenue M. E. church to become a temperance advocate, a petition demanding his resignation or insisting on' his removal to another charge, was to have been presented at the state conference of the Methodist church at Brainerd to-morrow. Mr. Morrison's decision to identify him self with the State Prohibition associa tion enables him to withdraw the more gracefully from a rather unpleasant posi tion in which he has recently been placed with regard to his congregation. The pas tor found a considerable portion of his flook arrayed against him when It be came known that he had recently married his step-daughter. The first Mrs. Mor rison, who was previously a Mrs. Robert son, died last February. The district court records show that "Grant" Morrison and Miss Maude Rob ertson secured a marriage license Sept. 3. They wee married by Rev. Mr. Valentine of Park Avenue Methodist church. Morrison Talks. Mr. Morrison declined to be interviewed with regard to his family affairs when seen yesterday at his residence, 2711 Fourth avenue S. "There is no truth In the report that my congregation was divided against itself, with me as a bone of contention," he de clared. "Of course there have ben some petty bickerings in the church, and I sup pose I have had my enemies as most of us have. I don't believe that there was any serious thought of demanding my resig nation or removal. I have been with the church for three years and during that time my relations with the congregation have^ been as pleasant as I could possibly have desired." Mr. Morrison had nothing to say about his future plans and rather left the im pression that he expected to remain with Franklin church indefinitely. Members of the church Interviewed this afternoon said Mr. Morrison's resignation or removal would undoubtedly have been requested to-morrow evening but for hi 9 intention of removing to Duluth, where he expects to take an active part in pro hibition work. IN CLASS ONE Local Dealers in Puts and Calls Win Their Point. from The Journal Bureau.. Jioom SS, Pott Buildiny, Wathinutoiu Washington, Sept. 24. —Commissioner of Internal Revenue Yerkes to-day settled the status of dealers in "puts" and "calls" on the Minneapolis Chamber of Commerce by classing them as "brokers class one" provided their deals are recog nized by and completed and closed on the exchange. This classification is included in a letter to the collector at New York relative to dealers in "privileges" in New York where such deals are not completed on the floor of the exchange and the deal ers are ruled to be "second class brokers." The parenthical part of letter relating to Minneapolis dealers ■ says: It appears, however, from papers received from the collector of internal revenue for Minnesota that in the cit yof Minneapolis, as in some others, the Chamber of Commerce does permit trading in "puts" and "calls" by its members and upon the floor of the ex change and recognizes such contracts as valid and enforces the same under its rules and regulations, the same aa it enforces other contracts. Wherever by the rules of any exchange or board of trade this is per mitted and the agreements as to "puts" and "calls" are closed on such board of trade or exchange as bona flde transactions, the ruling relating to "puts"' and "calls" in New York city of course does not apply. FIRED BOTH BARRELS Charles Snearly Murdered on a. Mon- tana Ranch by VV. K. Hardy. Special to The Journal. Great Falls, Mont., Sept. 24.—News haa reached here of the cold-blooded murder of Charles* Snearly by W. B. Hardy at "Doc" Smith's ranch on the Big Muddy, in Valley county. Prior to the snooting Snearly and Hardy were gathering a bunch of horses to take out of the country. They abandoned the plan, however, and the day after met. Hardy Is said to- have threatened to kill Snearly if he "peached." The men quar reled when they met. After some words Snearly said, "I wish I had my gun." Hardy threw his weapon on the ground and said, "There, take It." Snearly reached for it, but Hardy was too quick. Picking up the shotgun he emptied both barrels into Snearly's breast. He was ar rested and given a preliminary hearing before a justice and bound over in the sum of $25,000. RAILWAY WORK DELAYED Nine Hundred Men Leave the Camps of the Canadian Northern. Special to Tho Journal. Winnipeg, Man., Sept. 24.—William Macken zie of the Canadian Northern railway re turned from a visit to the points of construc tion to-day. He says 900 men have left their camps during the past two weeks and greatly delayed the work in Manitoba and Ontario. BIG NICOLLET SALE E. G. Walton Buys a Corner at Nic ollet and Washington Ays. CONSIDERATION WAS $54,000 Property "Will Be Improved In Near l'uture— Other Important Realty Deals. Edmund G. Walton, acting for the Realty Care and Improvement company, has just purchased the property on the southwest corner of Nicollet and Wash ington avenues for $54,000.

YACHT PROBABLY LOST Tell-Tale Broken Spar Found by 1/ife-Saviiiß- Crew.
