A SWEDISH CHURCHMAN
A Religions Leader Soon to Visit
This City.
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.
Arguments were heard by Governor Van
Sant yesterday in the case of George
B. Whitehorne, the fugitive county com
missioner of Ramsey county. Testimony
has been taken by the referees and sub
mitted to the governor. County Attorney
Kane, who filed the charges, appeared in
support of them, and George Walsh spoke
for Whitehorne. He declared that White
home would eventually return and face
the charges and that the case ought not
to be closed up until that time.
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.
Three husbands, arrested under the new law
designed to compel erring spouses to fulfil
their marital obligations, were arraigned be
fore Judge Harrison this morning on indict
ments by the grand jury. They were Henry
Voight, Albert Brademan and Jay Frink. All
pleaded not guilty and were held in $250 bail
each.
Frederick C. Whiting, alleged to have stolen
$80 from R. J. 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.
There always was reason for thinking the ele
ment which makes a fuss over decent treat
ment of colored people to be more noisy than
numerous.
A REAL BENEFACTOR.
Judge.
'My dear doctor, I cannot thank you
enough for performing that operation on
my uncle."
"I did the best I could."
"I know it. By his death, two whole
families are living in comparative ease."
MORE SPACE REQUIRED.

GOOD FOR THE CITY
National Headquarters of the G. A.
R. to Be Established.
MINNESOTAN FOR ADJT. 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. We have no formal means to &t

MAKES A BIG JUMP
The Equipment of the Northern
Pacific Road.
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.

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.

YACHT PROBABLY LOST
Tell-Tale Broken Spar Found by
1/ife-Saviiiß- Crew.
St. Joseph, Mich., Sept. 24.—Evidence
that leads to the belief that some un
known pleasure-sailing yacht is now
helplessly adrift in Lake Michigan or that
the craft has foundered and the^crew per
ished during the heavy gale that prevailed
on the lake for the last week, was brought
about by the finding of a broken spar by
the life saving crew of this city last night.
The spar is thirty feel long and it was
broken off near the saddle, just above
the deck. Attached to the spar was a
complete set of iron trucks and wire rig
ging. Entangled in the trucks were
blocks, spar hooks, pin rack and green
starboard light screen.
The wreckage was towed into port and
stored in the life saving station. It is a
question as to whether a yacht under such
circumstances could make port in safety.
Chicago, Sept. 24. —Local yachtsmen de
clare that alarm over the floating spar
found near St. Joseph, Mich., is unwar
ranted. They declare that almost un
doubtedly it belongs to the sloop Hattie
8., which lost her spar near the Michigan
shore two weeks ago.
