NEARLY ALL ITEMS NOW FIXED Some ProviMion Made for nebatiuie ISxcexiiive Taxett on Special Improvements. — That the rate of taxation for the year 1002 will be less than 30 mills is now as sured, but the times have changed mighti ly since the days when Mayor Eustia and his colleagues on the beard of tax levy tried to keep the levy down to 20 mills. It semes to be almost as hard to get the rate below 30 mills. ' '■■' Up to noon yesterday the board of tax levy had reached a levy of 20.82, and if I the school board is granted all-it asks ' and the aldermen get all that they say j they need for ward improvements, the i total levy will still be less than 30 mills. In some wards the aldermen will only want a half mill for ward work and in some they will want 2 mills. What the j average will be cannot be known unt.il , the board of tax levy finishes its work j this afternoon. '■ At the opening of the session yes terday City Attorney Healy appeared I before the"levyers" and told them what a j great mistake was being made in omitting i all provisions for caring for the claims I for excessive taxes on special improve- j ments. The courts had held that the ex- j cess could be collected under the decision . in the Pillsbury case and there was nl- , ready a large aggregate in claims for re- j bate on file, which would have to be paid. i The payment could be deferred, of Course, ; but this would only increase the costs. The appeal of the city attorney had its j effect. While most of the members of the j board knew that the principal beneficiary j would be a well-known tax rebate collect- | ing concern, they recognized the force of ; the city attorney's argument and grudg- j ingly permitted $15,000 to go in for the , payment of the rebates for excessive taxa- j tiun. . This raised the levy for the city's j current expense fund by 2-10 of a mill. Later on Senator F. B. Snyder told the board why and wherefore the city was forced to return the rebates on special | taxes and while he did not accuse the city j council it was plain that this waa due | to the very careless way of doing busi- , ness. j City Physician Nelson then took the j board down to the city hospital in order j to convince it by ocular evidence that it j was necessary to have about $40,000 for i new improvements. He needed a laun- | dry, a kitchen, the completion of the , contagious ward, new boilers, etc., and he j was able to back up his claims. When the board reconvened it decided j that the board of charities and correc- i tions could have the proceeds of tax levy j of 1.40 mills which will yield something: | over $140,000 and will permit the ex- ■ penditure of about $42,000 on the improve- \ ments which.Dr. Nelscn thinks are imper ative. Alderman Merrill thought that a rate ■ of 1:35 mills for the board of charities antl ' corrections would be sufficient as the city \ hospital could not expect all improve- ; meats in one year, but he was in a lone ; minority as there was not even a second ; to his motion. Then came the big tug—the question of | what the schools should have. , President Quinby raid that Controller Rogers' con- • tenticn that 5.50 mills would be sufficient j «raa absurd. Even the 6.50 mill levy I ie ord would not suffice. New buildings were absolutely imperative and the other iU':n3 could not be cut in the least. Noth- i ing less than 7 mills would be acceptable fo the board o* education. ' The boa adjourned for noon lunch without coming to an agreement on this . important quust'en. '.he tax levy rates thus far fixed by j the board are as follows: 'A■"•.-» I Mills. I State tax l.fio State shoo! ...2.23 i County revonue 2.93 i CITY. ! Current expense 5.70 Interest on bonded debt 3.03 Permanent improvements 1.33 Sinking fund 1.00 I'ark board ..1.00.! Library beard 50 , Board of charities and corrections 1.40 j LEW WILL BE 1.J5 MILLS State Auditor Will So Inform Comity ] Auditors. The state tax levy for 1901 will be 1.3 | mills. This was decided by State Audi tor Dunn this morning, and county audi tors will be so instructed within a few j days. The board of equalization made a sub- j gtantial increase in the assesment as re- | turned, but just how much cannot be . learned till its results are tabulated, j The legislature fixed the maximum levy j at 1.3 mills last spring-, and the full amount will be necessary to run the state's business next year. Other 1 levies are already fixed by law and the entire state revenue and school levy will be 2.83 mills, divided as follows: State revenue, 1.30; state funding tax, .20; soldiers' relief, .10; stater school tax, 1; university, .23. A HANDICAP OVERCOME XEW PLAX OF FLOUR SHIPPING It Enables Millers to Handle Eaitern Trade Despite Loss of Free Storage. Minneapolis flour manufacturers have completely overcome the handicap which eastern mills hoped to place upon them when the Interstate Commerce commis sion was successfully petitioned to in terrupt the free storage arrangements with the railway warehouses at Buffalo. The local millers have made satisfactory arrangements for the care of their do mestic flour trade which are even more advantageous than was the Buffalo pro position. Under the old plan, the mills shipped large quantities of flour to the Buffalo warehouses, where it was converted into smaller packages if necessary and from there supplied to a large portion of the eastern trade. When the interstate com merce commission interfered with this plan by ordering that storage be charged on western flour, the local millers, in order to keep the big mill 3 running to full capacity, began storing in large quanti ties at some of the lake ports. Large quantities were in storage at one time at Buffalo and Gladstone. This did not prove quite satisfactory. Part of the new arrangement Is to make Buffalo the distributing point for car lots to the eastern trade. Train loads are made up at the mills and sent east to Buffalo without a break. From there they are distributed over the various roads to points in the eastern states. This works well. The only extra effort re quired being the soliciting of the eastern customer's order a little in advance. In the past few weeks, Minneapolis mills have forwarded an immense quantity of flour east by this method. Shipping flour east by train loads has the element of time in its favor. Some quick records have been made. The plan appears to be gradually gaining in favor with the eastern buyers. EXAMINATIONS FOR NEW M. D.S. Candidates for admission to the practice of medicine in this state will take the state examination at the capltol to-morrow under Dr. C. J. Rlngnell, secretary. ATTORNEY GENERAL DOUGLAS IM PROVING. Attorney General Douglas will probably b» able to resume his duties In about ten days. His condition i* reported to-day as lm vroved FUND IS GROWING Contributions to Sewell Fund Are Coming In Rapidly. JOURNAL RECEIVED $145 TO-DAY People AU Over the Northwest Be coming Interented in Dvniilg ScireU'ii "Little Fello^m." The people of Minneapolis and the northwest are going to assist Mrs. Den nis Sewell in giving her hero-husband's "little fellows" the education "he had planned for them. ; . Dennis Sewell was deprived of the advantages of most chil dren and was compelled to make his way in the world alone from his eleventh year. But he knew the value of education, and his constant thought while working at his hazardous business was to see his boys developed under the blessings of a thor ough education. The fund for the unfortunate man's fam ily is growing, but not in a way to dis courage anyone from free and generous giving. A ' most gratifying feature in connection with it is the interest which has been aroused throughout the state and the Dakotas. It is no small task that confronts the widowed mother of Dennis Sewell's three children. A baby in arms and two boys, 4 and 5 years of age, prevent her from working outside of her home, and even the closest economy 'annot prevent, the fund at its present propjrtions from melt ing away long before the boys can be of help to her. or she can turn her own hands to remunerative employment. The employes of The Journal busi ness office were made happy to-day by many handsome subscriptions to the fund. The amounts received are not large, but they come with such genuine sympathy that the best Impulses are stirred in their consideration. For example, a man of state reputation who signs himself "A Capitol Sinpathizer," writes The Jour n a 1 as follows: . Enclosed find check for $10 for the family of the heroic Dennis Sewell. Wish I could afford to make it more, but I cannot. Journal Junior* Will Help. The Journal Junior boys, who are never behind hand in any public movement, have caught the contagion, as may be seen from the following letter: Editor Journal Junior: I think all of the Journal Juniors should be interested in the fund which is being, raised for Dennis Se well's family. ;:-•■ 1 We boys like to swim, and we all admire heroism as we admire nothing else. Why j can't we have a Journal Junior fund? I senl in my small mite as a starter, feeling suro that every boy who reads the Junior will add h>s little or much. Yours truly, < rv ■>* —Josiah A. Poppler, Perham, Minn. It will not bo practical to establish a separate fund for Journal Juniors, but their contributions will be classed with i recived from other sources. A Big; Store Benefit. Olson's Big Store restaurant will give ] the entire proceeds of an oyster supper j on Thursday evening to the fund. The , supper will be served between the hours j of- 7 and it p.-in.,'and every one who takes j supper at the Big Store will have the satisfaction of knowing that the money | they pay for it will go to swell the con- I tributions of the fund. This is an ex- | cellcnt chance to get a good oyster sup- I per and to contribute to a nobie charity, j Iv his letter enclosing $5, J. E. Engstad, j M. D., of Grand Forks, N. D., says: "In» form Mrs. Sewell that in event of need in the future, I shall be happy to assist her." The genrous sympathy of Dr. Engstad's j letter is voiced in many others containing j subscriptions, aud the fund is destined to grow from now on in a highly satisfac tory manner.

The Ministers' Alliance, the organization of all ordained ministers of the Minneapolis and vicinity, held its first meeting this morning in the Y. M. C. A. building. The regular meeting day is the first Monday in each month, but next week Presbytery will be in session at Westminster church and many of the Methodist clergymen will be out of the c!ty attending conference. A resolution changing the name to th* Ministers' Alliance was adopted and the sec retary, Charles Fox Davis, instructed to send invitations to the clergymen of other <?e- nominations beside the five represented at the meeting this morning to become members, namely: Episcopalian, Catholic, Unitarlau, Universalist and Lutheran. Dr. John E. Bushnell, pastor of West minster church, read the paper of the morn ing taking as his subject, "The Function of the Ministers' Alliance." Dr. Bushnell spoke of the necessity of thorough unity in order to cope with the issues which might arise. No definite action was taken by the asso ciation as to municipal affairs, although it bad been intimated that the alliance would ake a hand in such matters, in fact the al liance has no plans outlined for the future The meeting was well attended and did cot adjourn until a late hour. Liberal Ministers Meet. T ,I he ,se? ond meeting for the year of the Liberal Ministers' club of the twin cities was held in the study of Rev. M. D.

The total membership of the club is now twelve, composed of pastors of Universalist, Unitarian and Reformed Jewish churches in the two cities. The club was organized last fall by Dr. Shutter, who also entertained the members at an informal lunch after the last, meeting. A PLAN FOR PEACE. Baltimore American.

Y«s, Bah!' THE MINNEAPOLIS JOUENAt. DISTRICT ATTORNEY Peterson Could Have Had It but i Declined. SENATORS' NEXT PREFERENCE They Try to Agree on a Hennepin Man— Nye Said to Have Inalde Track, \ James A. Peterson could have had the appointment of United States district at torney if h« had been willing to take it. When he declined the senators are re ported to have asked each other to ex press his next choice. The report goes on to the effect that Senator Nelson pro posed C. C. McCarthy of Grand Rapids, and Senator Clapp named C. C. Haupt of Fergus Falls. Then each smiled at the other and agreed to try to get together on a Hennepin county man. Four men were carefully considered—M. H. Boutell, J. H. Steele, M. D. Purdy and Frank M. Nye. No choice has been announced and none seems to have been finally decided upon, but the persistent rumor for sev eral days has been that Senator Nelson has practically conceded the choice to Senator Clapp and that Clapp prefers Nye. The other candidates do not con cede Nye's selection, and their friends are still actively at work for them, but those who claim to know insist that Nye has the Inside track. If it be true, as re ported, that Senator Nelson has practical ly turned the matter over to Senator Clapp, the personal relations of Clapp and Nye will no doubt aid the latter very much in addition to his professional qual ifications. Mr. Nye studied law with Sen ator Clapp and began his practice under the junior senator's general guidance. Judge Steele has good supporters in Governor Van Sant and Judge Jamison, and his friends urge that his appointment, aside from his fitness for the office, would be good politics. NEW LINES PLANNED Significant Features of a New Northern Pacific Map. SHORT LINES TO THE BOUNDARY They Are Included In the Scheme — Groan Earning* Are Climbing-. The annual report of the Northern Pa cific, given out for distribution yesterday, contains a very interesting map, which shows by means of dotted lines some of the new lines and extensions which the company intends to build. It would ap pear from the map that the lines have been planned without any great amount of fear of encroaching on Great North ern territory. The extension contemplated in this state, which attracts most attention, is that by which the Northern Pacific will obtain a much shorter line to the inter national boundary than that now in use. This will be secured by two cut-offs—the first from Parktcn, a few miles west of Stiples, northwesterly to Fertile, thus cutting off the haul via Winnipeg Junc tion; the second between Grand Forks and Drayton, cutting off the crescent-shaped piece of track on which Grafton is lo cated. These cut-offs will place the Northern Pacific on even stronger terms than now with the Great Northern, for business be tween this section and the Canadian boundary. Xew Line Into South Dakota. Another dotted line indicates an inten tion on the part of the Northern Pacific to enter Milwaukee territory in the Fort Yates district by a line extending from Edgerley, S. D.. in a southwesterly di rection to Ashley, thence direct to Fort Yates. Further west another line is indicated from Missoula southwesterly through the | Bitter Root forest reservation to Kooskia, J Idaho. This is a part of the general plan ! to shorten the transcontinental line, and may not be carried out for a long time. A line from Aberdeen Junction, Wash., straight north to Cape Flattery, on the | coast of the Pacific ocean, is also mdi- j cated. This line would open up a rich [ timber country between the Olympic range i and the coast. It is over 100 miles west I of Puget sound. Groai Earnings Away Up. Northern Pacific gross earnings are j soaring, despite the fact that all revenue i from the Manitoba lines, transferred to ! the provincial givernment June 1, is j not now included in the Northern Pa cific totals. The earnings of the Seattle & International are included, however. The earnings statement for August, is- \ sued to-day, shows an increase in gross ] earnings of $639,121. The increase for the present month will be still larger, for it is understood the earnings for the first twenty-five days aggregated something like $575,000. The following are the figures: Gross earnings for month of August, 1901, $3,529,046.67; increase, $639,121.45. Operating expenses for August, 1901, $1,743,299.24; increase, $315,609.44. Net earnings for month of August, 1901, $1,785,747.43; increase, $323,512.01. BUNNIES WERE SCARCE HAD A TIP ON COURSING MEET John Cliarlton Says the Scarcity Was a Handicap to Good Sport. John Charlton, of 1103 Logan avenue N, who had a string of hounds entered in the coursing meet held last week at Madison, S. D., returned yesterday. Mr. Charlton says the unusual scarcity of jack rabbits In the country round about Madison was a serious handicap on the meet. Ordinarily that section of South Dakota abounds with jacks, but they made themselves very scarce this year having evidently gotten wind of the approaching coursing on their preserves. The meeting should have been concluded Friday night, but up to that time It had been unable to run off several stakes, owing to the inability of the hounds to scare up enough quarries. The jacks, who were "so kind," responded no bly, and in every case gave the dogs a long, hard run before succumbing, getting away in a few instances. The place chosen for the meet was not an ideal one, being quite hilly. The up grade played the mischief with dogs ac customed to level running and fagged many of them out when a long, hard run on the flat would not have touched them. Owing to the dearth of rabbits, the derby was only run through once, there being no contest between twelve entries. Many owners were unable to remain for the finish, owing to the near approach of the St. Louis meeting. The Charlton dogs were left with a trainer at Madison, where they will be put in shape for the meet at Friend, Neb. In the Aberdeen cup stake three dogs were left in, and a division of the money was made even first, second and third, between Frank Winnegan's Loki, owned in New Richmond, Minn., J. McKeon's Yokamen and Alice Grey, owned in Sioux Falls, S. D. The puppy stake was only run through once, where it should have been run six times. On first ties of the cup, unfinished, Alice Grey beat Lady Hugo, Waneta beat Lady Egan, Royal Yerah beat Princess Green dyne, Loki beat Crawford Bell. In the second ties of the cup Alice Grey beat Blue Princess, Harvest Memory beat Royal Yerah. and Loki beat Waneta. In the third ties Yokameu beat Harvest Memory.

The meeting was called for the purpose of deciding whether the church should pay Dr. McKaig the balance of j $500 said to be due him for services dur ing the year just closed. Some of the opposition indulged in hisses "when Dr. McKaig spoke. He thereupon declared va- J cant the seats of six of the^ board of trus j tee 3. The trustees formally decided that they would not pay Dr. McKaig the bal ance due him. It will be remembered that a year ago : the church asked for the appointment to their church of the Rev. Mr. Vance of i Fargo. Bishop Joyce declined to make the appointment on the ground that there was no member of the conference asking a transfer, and appointed Dr. McKaig to the church. This caused a commotion. In j speaking of the developments, Dr. McKaig makes some surprising statements. Speak ing with great reluctance, he says: When I came to Simpson church a delib erate effort was made to freeze me out. My salary for some time was $10 a week. After- | wards it was agreed that I should have half j of the amount of money paid into the church, | but matters had become so demoralized that | the amount so paid was rather small. Some 1 of my friends who wished to have their con ! tributions paid to me directly sent in checks I payable to me personally. In several cases these checks were, to my knowledge, cashed without my signature, and the proceeds were used to pay the expenses of the church. I soon put a stop to this irregular method of doing business. The excuse given me wa3 that it had been the practice to do business in that way. When I got this thing stopped other checks of a like nature came in, but they were returned to the senders, so, you see, I was again deprived of money that was intended for me. W. H. Smollett, the financial secretary of the church, admitted having received cheeks of the nature stated by Dr. Mc- Kaig, but said he had turned them over to D. W. Longfellow. Mr. Longfellow was very reticent. He did not deny having received the checks but declined to say what he did with them. The Farewell Service. Dr. McKaig delivered his farewell ser mon Sunday, but did not allude to the church's trouble. At the close of the service a resolution was adopted speak ing in highest praise of Dr. McKaig's work as pastor and preacher, and of his character as a man and expressing regret (at hi 3 coming departure. Following the ! adoption of the resolution a deficiency of $400 in his salary was raised within fifteen minutes in $5 subscriptions. Simpson church is talking of calling next year Rev. Dr. Ryder of Alliance, j Ohio. Dr. Ryder wants $2,000 a year and his removal expenses. Whether the bishop will grant this request or not is yet to be settled. JACOBS IS BEATEN Chess Championship of the West Remains in Minnesota. MAC LEOD 3, JACOBS 2; DRAWN 1 As a Whole the Match Was Well Played and Compara tively Close. At 12:15 yesterday the sixth and final | game of the Mac Leod-Jacobs match for i the chess championship of the west, played at the St. Paul Chess club, ended with a victory for Mac Leod. This retains the western championship in Minnesota. The game, which was a spirited ! Staunton attack — MaceLod's favorite I game—was well played on both sides up ; to the seventeenth move, when Jacobs, by I a strange oversight, allowed McLeod to I win exchange of bishop for rook. Jacobs I after this could do nothing but play for a j draw, and even this hope was blasted a i few moves later by MacLeod's vigorous j onslaught. It is too bad that the final j game of the match, which promised to be ; a hot and hard encounter, should be i marred with a palpable oversight. Six games in all have been played in the match, which began one week ago, the re- I suit being three for MacLeod, two for Ja | cobs, and one draw; victory going to the j first player taking three games. As a whole, the match has been well played and •is comparatively close. With careful play !in his first and last games, Jacobs had I draws, and in his fourth game had win jning chances. His impetuosity in the end game was his chief danger from the steady and watchful strategy of his more experienced opponent. N. M. MacLeod, the St. Paul man, won the western championship at the summer tournament at Minnetonka, in which six western states participated, by the excel lent score of 13 to 2. The challenger, C. S. Jacobs, of Dcs Moines, holds the lowa I championship and has achieved some fame j otherwise as a problemist and correspond- J ence player. If MacLeod is further chal ; lenged for the championship, Chicago is j the most likely point to be heard from i next. The striking feature of the first game was the cautious maneuvering of both players up to the end game. MacLeod put up his well-known fianchetto defense and got somewhat the better of the skirm ish in the middle game, coming into the end game with a pawn to the good. Jacobs, however, had a passed pawn, which, with careful and correct play, might have forced a win. His bold sacrifice of the knight in order to win a move was very interesting and probably sound. His last queen move, however, settled all hope. The moves follow: White, Jacobs. Black, McLeod.

NOT A WAGE REDUCTION SOME STATE SALARIES RAISED New Board of Control Schedule Not the Real t'anae of Ui» ■ntlafactlon. The new wage schedule for the insane hospitals does not mean a reduction. Averaged up, it in fact amounts to an increase. The policy of the board of con trol is to get more efficient help among those employes who come into direct con tact with the inmates, and, as a rule, higher salaries are being paid to such. The reduction came on cooks and un skilled help. The true source of dissatisfaction among employes of the insane hospitals is believed to be the cutting off of per quisites formerly allowed. A general or der to all the Institutions prohibits the sale of state supplies to employes, which has been a prevalent practice. Officials living outside the institutions are allowed a reasonable amount of supplies for their households, but und^r the new order can not buy a higher grade for themselves. They must take them from the supplies purchased for inmates and no others. As a general rule, the grade of pro visions furnished inmates and employes of the board has been improved. More is paid for tea, coffee, and for meats, than formerly. The board is encouraging young people to enter the service of the state institu tions permanently, by paying extra wages for those who have been in the service a long time, and are efficient. W. E. Lee returned to-day from a trip to Rochester and St. Peter. He says there is no trouble at Rochester over the new wage schedule, and that there is no longer eny difficulty at St. Peter. Benjamin Wiberg, head cook, and the two assistants who quit with him without the required thirty days' notice, will not get any of their September pay. As the cut did not take effect until Oct. 1, they made a very foolish move in abandoning their places. A new brick smokestack will be built on the powerhouse at Rochester, to re place the iron one, which is about worn out. The contract has been let to Wm. Posten of St. Paul. The St. Peter institution is building a reservoir for its water supply, which comes from an artesian well. AY in on it Normal Bills. Bills for the Winona normal school were filed to-day with the state auditor to the amount of $731.66. They were left over from the last fiscal year on account of the deficit. One is for $300, for the services of C. A. Morey as purchasing agent for the year end ing July 31. All were allowed by the board of control, but in the case of Mr. Morey's bill the board noted that it disclaimed all responsibility for the account. LOOKING OVER TERMINALS MILWAUKEE DIRECTORS HERE Preaident Earling Saya Improve ments Will Be Made aa Traffic Demands. President A. J.

A CHANCE TO SAVE MONEY NEW CAPITOL BIDS FAVORED Commissioner De Lafttre Thinks That Conrie Beat—A Minneapo lis Firm Charges Unfairness. John DeLaittre, the Minneapolis mem ber of the state capitol commission, be lieves the state can save money by re advertising for bids on mechanical con struction. He also favors a new set of specifications. The commission meets at 10:30 to-mor row morning to take action on the bids. The sentiment seems to favor letting seven individual contracts, which oan be done for about $335,000, according to the bids now in. According to the figures of Architect Gil bert and Engineer Harrison, the lowest bid on the entire job is $370,000, made by Allan Black & Co., of St. Paul. It is as serted by local bidders that an injustice has been done W. I. Gray & Co. and that correct figures would make them the low est bidders. Their bid was $372,015, including Corliss engines. The specifications called for high speed engines, as Corliss engines are a much higher price. The Allan Black company offered to substitute Corliss en gines for $8,636 additional. This would make their bid $378,636. Engineer Harrison debited the Gray company $6,000 on iheir make of boilers. The specifications called for water tube boilers, and the Gray company bid on Erie tubular boilers. They claim that they are a water tube boiler fully equal to the speci fications, and a representative of the Erie company will endeavor to convince the capital commission of that fact to-mor row. Another debit of $3,000 was entered up because the Gray company did not bid on the quill system of shafting. They bid, however, on four Corliss engines, while the specifications only call for three engines connected with generators by the Arnold Power system. These debits raised the Gray company to $381,015, against $370,000 for Allan Black & Co. Mr. Gray says that a proper equalization would make the bids $372,U15 and $378,636 respectively. Had W. I. Gray & Co. submitted separ ate bids on the items, they would have been lowest on about $2,000,000 worth of the business, and about $100,000 worth of material would have been furnished by Minnesota labor. Mr. De Laittres believe that a consider able saving can be effected by readvertis lng. CQURT NEWS Snow Mast Furnish Proof*. It is not often that a modern divorce ease is defended, but Annie E.
