Some Heroic Work Done on the
Tax Levy.
Some ProviMion Made for nebatiuie
ISxcexiiive Taxett on Special

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
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 .

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
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.
Candidates for admission to the practice

Contributions to Sewell Fund Are
Coming In Rapidly.
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 New Ministers' Aliance Holds
Its First Meeting.
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

Rabbi Rypins of St. Paul led a discussion
of Paul and his work from a Jewish stand
point. Lunch was served at the Guarauty
Building restaurant, following the meeting
A special meeting will be held at Unity
church in St. Paul next Monday to receive
Rev. Henry B. Taylor of Marion, Mass., who
is coming to the Universalist church in St.
Paul, now without a pastor.
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.

Peterson Could Have Had It but
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.
Significant Features of a New
Northern Pacific Map.
They Are Included In the Scheme
— Groan Earning* Are
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
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
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
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 !

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.
John Cliarlton Says the Scarcity
Was a Handicap to Good
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

Attended by Officials of the Simp-
son M. £. Church.
Dr. MiKulk Makes SurprUinjt State
menta Regarding the Same—
Hia Farewell Sermon.
The trouble between Rev. Dr. R. N.
McKaig and a portion of Simpson M. E.
church culminated Friday evening in a
meeting attended by the pastor, Presiding
Elder Fielder, the trustees of the church,
and a number of the male members of the
same. 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.
Chess Championship of the West
Remains in Minnesota.
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.

New Board of Control Schedule Not
the Real t'anae of Ui»
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
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.

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.

this afternoon on a trip of inspection.
Accompanying Mr. Earling were William

of Milwaukee, also Henry C. Payne, the
Wisconsin capitalist and politician.
The time spent here was occupied In
an inspection of the Milwaukee terminal
property. Mr. Earling, when asked what
improvements the Milwaukee had in mind
in connection with the purchase of prop
erty recently purchased on Washington
avenue S, said the road intended to con
tinue the general policy of improving it 3
facilites here with the constantly increas
ing demands of traffic.
Mr. Earling said that the directors
would not go into South Dakota this
trip; the Milwaukee road was greatly
interested in that state, but it had no
new extensions to announce.
Mr. Miller said that conditions in the
west pleased him There v.as every Indi
cation that the coming year would be a
prosperous one for tte west as a whole.

advertising for bids on mechanical con
struction. He also favors a new set of

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.
