Mistake in Place—ln the Oct. 17th editions of The Journal appeared an article in which it was announced that a 16 --year-old girl was arrested and taken from the Log Cabin saloon on First avenue the evening before, and when taken was sitting on a man's lap. It now appears that the girl was not taken from the Los Cabin saloon, nor had she been there. She was, in fact, arrested in postofflce alley. Enough Detectives Sow — With a force of twenty-six detectives, on hand for duty, the city council holds to the view that there is no real occasion for the police de partment to spend money for outside detec tive talent. Pawnbroker Price recently put in a bill to the police committee for ?7 lor the hire of a private detective to help him on a case.

No event! of the season will arouse more lively inter- i est. Tolstoy is the most striking figure in the reform movements of to-day, and Miss i Addams, whose own magnificent work and j noblp life give her a right to speak, is an ardent disciple. Miss Addams is said, in deed, tp divide mankind into two classes, j those who have read Tolstoy's "What to Do" , and those who have not.

I of Rock Island, 111., manufacturers of the | celebrated "Cream Gum., (all flavors) in- I eluding "Black Joe" (licorice flavor), and "White Sue," "cinnamon flavor), scored a touchdown at the lowa-Minnesota Foot- , laell game at Minneapolis, Saturday, Oct. ! 26, by making one of the most successful | advertisements that has come to our . notice for some time. His method was attractive and is bound , to bring great results, as the gum he ad vertised is Really High Grade, and from : the vest amount of samples he distributed, ! besides a large amount of interesting j reading matter, Hat Calenders, etc., the ! popularity of "Black Joe" and "White Sue" Cream Gum is assured in this lo cality. "' ~:i'' The touchdown he scored, however, was the liberal distribution of the official | "Iowa" badge of the day, the badge being a satin ribbon, the color of "old gold" (which, by the way, is lowa's color), fast ened by a neat silver monkey—the badge reading: "Don't monkey with me, for I am from IOWA, end I chew West's Cream Gum, "Black Joe" and "White Sue." The L. E. West Gum Co. have a national reputation as original and successful ad- | vertisers, and we are confident that if the | firm keeps their gum up to the high ! standard it now is, and continue adver tising as they have done in the past, that i West's Cream Gum will be the leading j seller in the "West." HE WAS IN TROUBLE Harris Says Poverty Drove Him to •■■limit Theft. M. Harris, a painter, told a tale of ab ject poverty and resultant crime In the police court this morning. He pleaded guilty to stealing a bicycle from a rack near the Dewey theater and selling it. He gave as his excuse his urgent need for money. He said that his goods and chat tels were heavily mortgaged, the mort gage was due, and having been unable to procure work. he had no money with which to make the payment. Judge Holt told ! him that it was poor policy to commit I crime to get out of trouble, and imposed a : fine of $100 or ninety days in the work house. Morris has a wife and four chil- j dren.

DECISION MADE BY JUDGE McGEE He Holds That Inquests Are Fer missalile Only In Cases Involv ing Criminal Violence. Judge McGee has handed down his de cisions in the suits involving the disputes between Coroner V. Q. Williams and the county commissioners. In one suit an ep peal was taken from the amount allowed the coroner as fees and in another the coroner appealed from a disallowance of his claim by the county commissioners. Tho decision effectually disposes of all controversy as to when the coroner shall hold inquests. It appears from the mem orandum attached to the decisions that Coroner Williams has simply been follow ing precedent in this matter, but the court holds that the precedent is a bad one. The viewing-of the body, in the first place, should be virtually a preliminary inquest and should determine whether a formal inquest and a potst mortem examination are actually necessary. The statute on the subject reads as fol lows : Coroners shall take inquests upon the view of the dead bodies of such persons only as are supposed to have come to their death by violence, and not when the death is believed to have been and was evidently occasioned by casualty. The court says: "Language could hardly be more explicit but if anything more necessary to make it more so, it will be found in the proviso added to that sec tion, as re-enacted by Chapter 97 of Gen eral Laws of 1901, which is as follows: Provided, that before such inquest shall be taken the coroner shall request the county attorney to appear at such inquest and con duct the examination of witnesses. The court adds: "Its plain meaning is that inquests shall only be held in cases where persons are supposed to have come to their death by criminal violence. It would be the height of nonsense to say that in any of these cases there was the slightest pretext for pretending that there was even a suspicion that death resulted from criminal violence or from anything other than casualty." In the accident cases Involved it is held that there was no excuse whatever for conducting Inquests and the same having been illegally held there is no legal claim against the county and the charges are therefore disallowed. In closing, the court notices that the coroner reports having "viewed" forty eight bodies between June 28 and July 27. The coroner holds that he is entitled to view the body of every person dying without the attendance of a physician. Whether the statute is susceptible of this broad construction was not presented in the record of the cases and the court con sequently expresses no opinion thereon. JOLLEY IS RELEASED He Apologizes to the (unit and Is Purged of Contempt. Frank Jolley, the grain broker who was given a cell in the county Jail for ignoring the order of the court, was purged of con tempt this morning and allowed to go hence. He made a manly apology and ex pressed sincere penitence for his conduct in the courtroom. Colonel George C. Ripley, in requesting Mr. Jolley's releasa, stated that he had complied with the order of the court, paid over the alimony and would be careful to obey future orders. It was represented that if his release could be procured very soon he could retain his position, which is worth over $3,000 a year. As Jolley has been in jail practically a whole week and in view of the fact that he was not in a state of utmost sobriety at the time he defied the court, Judge Elliott, having no personal interest in the matter, ordered th# contempt proceedings dismissed. Mr». Knoblauch Gets $5,416.17. Emilia Knoblauch, who refuses to sell her property on First street, near Sixteenth avenue N, for Omaha railroad terminal pur poses, did not receive as high an award from the jury which heard her appeal as she did in the report of the condemnation com missioners. The latter placed a value of $5,500 on the property, but Mrs. Knoblauch took an appeal and the jury yesterday re turned a verdict for $5,416.17. Mr. Douunn Explains. Kennedy Dougan, whose divorce case was dismissed ea his own motion this week, says he did not testify to having seen his wife driving -with the co-respondent, as stated in The Journal of Wednesday. He also says he favored dismissal not because of any '•remorse or penitence," but because he per ceived he had been misled by certain private detectives regarding the nature of the evi dence, and that the principal charge in his complaint wa3 without foundation. Brlggrs' Cases Go Over. All the cases against Fred A. Briggs for keeping gambling devices have been con tinued over the term.

A KINDERGARTEN DAY YOINGSTERS APPEAR IN COURT Emil Deppe Discloses a Novel Way of Securing Pin Money—Hnlda I.urson Gnilty. The juvenile element predominated In the police court Saturday. There were eight boys and girls on trial for various offenses, petit larceny, assault and bat tery and malicious destruction of property Hulda Larson, a girl of 19, who Is the daughter of a respected farmer, Fred Lar son, of near Wadena, Minn., pleaded guilty to the charge of shoplifting on two charges. For one, where the amount of goods stolen amounted to about $3, she was sentenced to a fine of $25 or thirty days, and for the other, where the amount was $6.25, she was sentenced to a fine of $50 or sixty days. These sentences were made probationary and the fiirl was turned over to Probation Officer Holt, with the suggestion that the girl remain at home for a year. The girl's father came down from Wadena and was present in court. Emil Deppe's Odd Case. Emil Deppe, 18 years old, son of Fred Deppe, a shoe dealer living at P3O Four teenth avenue S, is assused of using a pe culiar method to compel his father to give him money. The father has had him arrested charged with the malicious de struction of property. He says that his son. upon being refused money by him, cm* j and tore his clothing into shreds. Li t e boy, however, says that b» Jli n«i de stroy the clothes *••♦ "[.IiA.-l.eA" them, sub stituting •* LU* yuee a bunch of rags. H" tiiA lie had offered to replace the i tiocaes on condition that his father would I "dig up." His case will be tried Oct. 1. | Being' unable to furnish the $150 bail ' asked, he was committed to jail. This is not the first time young Deppe has been in court. Some time ago he received a workhouse sentence for breaking windows in his home because his mother would not give him money. Arthur Brown, Roy Easthagen and Rutherford Langley, all about 10 years old, were arraigned charged with petit larceny! It was alleged that the boys, while on their way home from school stopped at a house at 525 Sixth street S and stole several bars of soap from a lady canvas ser. The Easthagen boy was tried this morning and acquitted. Brown had been released upon promise to be in court but the lad did not appear. Langley had no counsel and his case was continued. Eddie Woods, a colored boy about 10 years old, and Robert Smith of the same ago, were charged with assault and bat tery. Their case will be tried Oct. 2. Thomas Tolmia, 17 years old, is accused of stealing a bicycle. THE MINNEAPOLIS JOURNAL 1. TO HELP MANKIND Christian Efforts at Hennepin Quar terly Meeting.

PROMINENT BANKERS FAVOR IT Canadian System of Branch Banks Generally Favored—Agitation '■■'-. tins Done Good. This week's Issue of the Commercial West contains much Interesting comment I by prominent bankers of Minneapolis and j Chicago concerning the recent utterances lof A. B. Stickney before the American Bankers' Association in Milwaukee. Mr. Stickney's paper, it will be remem bered, favored a central bank backed by the government. Following are a few cx i presslons of opinion on the subject: John J. Mitchell, president of the Illi nois Trust and Savings bank, Chicago: I think that a central bank, as proposed by | Mr. Stickney, would be of certain advantage ! to the entire nation. The only trouble in this country is that such a financial institution might be subject to thp whim of a lot of politicians and handled in their interests. The laying up of large reserves and public mon eys in the different banks of the country would soon overcome the difficulties that now exist through deposits going into and re maining in the subtreasuries. With a central and branch banking system it would make all the money in the country directly avail able for the public. John C. Black, president of the Con tinental National bank; F. L. Hankey, vice president of the Northern Trust ocm pany, and E. A. Hamill, president of the Corn Exchange National bank, all of Chi cago, call attention to the absurdity of the subtreasury plan of storing up money. They also commend the healthy agitation induced by Mr. Stickney's paper. J. W. Raymond, president of the North western bank of this city. Is not in favor of the government having anything to do with banking. "I do not believe in a central bank backed by the government," says Mr. Raymond. "The Canadian sys tem of branch banks I regard as the best there is. Some better banking system than we have is certainly to be desired, but not one of which the government has a part." E. A. Merrill, president of the Minne sota Loan and Trust company, says condi tions would be much better under the sys tem empolyed in England, Scotland or Canada. Says Mr. Merrill: Those systems have been in use many years. The currency issued has proved thoroughly reliable, and the rates of interest have been kept reasonable. It certainly is incumbent upon all who are interested in the welfare of the country to carefully discuss and con sider these systems, as well "as any others which may be of benefit. LOCAL CHINESE LOYAL DOX'T APPROVE REFORM WORK Hone Ka Tein Here to Form Branch of Reform Associa tion. [ Hong Ka Tein, representing the Chinese I Empire Reform association, together with I his interpreter and clerk, is in St. Paul, ; organizing a branch of the order to which !he belongs. When his work there is com pleted he will come to Minneapolis. The association is a revolutionary order which ! has for its objects the deposition of the empress dowager, and the throwing open ;of China to the commerce of the world, as well as its internal development. It is composed of the radical element of what may be termed the modern party. To Hong Ka TeiD has been intrusted the duty of proselythtg among his fellow countrymen in tbla country; and he has jmet with great n.access. In China the as sociation has about 2,000,000 members; i and brancheF uxist in South American and i Australia ai well as in the United States. I The San i'rancisco branch alone numbers 10,000 T!l» lfcform association is pledged to do ill in Its power to gain its ends by peace ful means, failing in which more drastic I measures will be resorted to. Wong Gee, the acknowledged leader of | the local Chinese communUy. says he has i no knowledge of Hong Ka Tein or his movement, and he doubts very much if he will find the local field a promising one to work in. There are not to exceed thirty Chinamen in Minneapolis, he says. G. J. TO CONSIDER IT The Allanen Case Will Be Taken Ip Monday. The case of Mary Allanen, of Ishpeming, Mich., who was charged by a coroner's Jury with throwing her babe in the river in Minenapolis on Friday of last week, will be taken before the grand ujry Mon day. Coroner Williams, the nurses at As bury hospital where the young woman was confined and others who testified at the i inquest have been summoned to appear before the jury. No move has yet been made to arerst Miss Allanen, who is re ported to be at her home in Ishpeming. It is probable that nothing will be done until the grand jury reports. j inimß MOTORMAN J. E.

NEWT LOGGING ROAD It Will Tap Rich Pine Lands Near Bemidji. T. B. WALKER & SONS TO BUILD IT It Will Connect With the Great Northern Which la Also Interested. More than 15,000 acres of pine lands, carrying over 200,000,000 feet of logs, will be put in direct rail connection with the saw mills before the first of the year. This great tract of pine is in the coun try about Bemidji, and it will be tapped by a new logging road which is being built into that district by T. B. Walker & Sons of Minneapolis. The Great Northern road, with which the new road will, con nect, is also financially interested in the building of the line. Mr. Walker said this morning that grad ing was now being done by a force of sev eral hundred men and teams for a distance of ten or twelve miles. The road will start from a point about two miles west of Solway, the most available point on the Great Northern for forming a connection. It will run in a southerly direction for a distance of from twenty-two to twenty-four miles, and will have its terminus near Lake Itasca. In j fact, an extension of the line for five or aix miles would bring it to Itasca's shores. It is understood, however, that Messrs. Walker & Sons will not build this ex tension. "We are Interested solely in getting out the logs in the country south of Solway," said Mr. Walker, and we will not push on to Lake Itasca. Work is being pushed as rapidly as possible over a portion of the line. We hope to get a crew at work laying track within ten days. The trouble is, we have two or three hard cuts to overcome. They have delayed us a good deal, and we are now figuring on putting on night crews to facilitate the work." Mr. Walker added that the new road was absolutely necessary to get the logs out of that territory, as it had been found im practicable to drive them to Bemidji, as the upper Mississippi offers great diffi culties to the lumbermen. TO BEAT THE DEAD BEAT BUTCHERS TO GET TOGETHER They Will Co-operate to Bring Bad Pay Customers to Time. The Minneapolis Butchers' council is preparing to adopt a system of monthly credits similar to that now in use by the retail grocers. The plan is still in em bryo, but the membership of the council has been considerably increased recently, and the larger dealers, those whose shops are located in the down town district, have been approached with a view to joining. The council's proposition has 'been favorably received and it is probable that some action will be taken in the near future. The plan contemplates the use of a black list on which shall be placed the names of "bad pay" customers. After it goes into effect no man will be able to buy meat on credit who does not promptly settle his bills once each month. WHAT PARIS STANDS FOR Hill Strong Points us a Commercial Clnb Man. One of the friends of A. W. Paris, who feels that an injustice was done him by an article published in The Journal re garding the coming election of officers for the Commercial Club, has this to say about Mr. Paris' relation to the public ai fairs work: In presenting the name of Mr. Paris for the consideration of the members of the club, his friends want to have it understood that Mr. Paris stands for intelligent and unceasing activity along the lines of public work, as well as to give due and proportion ate consideration to the comfort and welfare of the social element of the membership. [ Mr. Paris' career of over twenty years' suc j cessful business experience in this city, and bis well known readiness to contribute both I by pecuniary contributions and personal ef ' forts to the advancement of every public en- terprise, ought to provide sufficient assurance that the position of the club towards the business interests of the city and its con tinued influence as a potent factor in the upbuilding of everything that pertains to the welfare of Minneapolis will be such as to commend it to the good judgment of all of its members. An Appeal for the Boers J. F. Calboun has received from John De Goeijen, Jr., of Amsterdam, a copy of an open letter to President Roosevelt, published in English, as a supplement to Algemeen Handelsblad, Amsterdam. The letter is written by Charles Boissevain, managing editor of the paper, and deals at great length with "The law of nations and the law of humanity." It is an eloquent appeal for steps on the part of the presi dent that will look to the termination of the war in South Africa, and it is also a strong indictment* of England as a vio lator of the laws of nations and human- TIPPING DAYS PAST Former Lafayette Hotel Waiter Now a Doctor of Philosophy. HARVARD GAVE HIS DEGREE Or. Dv Boia of Atlanta luivernUjr the One Time '•Billy" of Hotel Lafayette. From waiter to savant! That, In brief, Is the life history of William Edward Burghardt Dv Bois, who waited upon the guests of the Lafayette Hotel at Minne tonka during the season of 1888, and who is now porfessor of sociology and history at the University of Atlanta, with the degree of Ph. D. conferred by Harvard. Dv Boia is, of course, a colored man. He came to the Lafayette from Fisk uni versity, where he graduated with the de gree of A. B. The money he earned dur ing the summer he spent the next winter at Harvard, where he was given a mas ter's degree. Then he went to Berlin and took a course in sociology at Berlin uni versity. On his return to this country he wrote a thesis on the African slave trade in America, which is now regarded as the leading authority on that subject and for which Harvard conferred upon him the degree of Ph. D. He next taught a year at Wilberforce university, and put in another year of work at Johns Hop kins. At present he is teaching at At lanta. Guests upon whom "Billie" waited dur ing his summer at the Lafayette will probably be greatly surprised to learn of his career since he left Minnesota. They, of course, had no idea that they were tipping a future doctor of philosophy when they slipped "Billie" a quarter or a half. They only knew him as an ac commodating waiter, always prompt and always ready to do everything he could for the people he served. A few years ago he returned to Minne apolis and delivered an address in Plym outh church before the American Mission ary association: It was not strange that' his old friends failed to recognize him in; his new role, for his speech was pro- j nounced one of the most scholarly efforts of the convention. A short time ago he appeared on the lyceum platform at Boston with Booker T. Washington and Paul Laurence Dunbar, the trio of distinguished colored men at tracting an immense audience. ' While at the Lafayette, Dv Bols be longed to a colored quartet, the singing of which was usually a feature of the vaudeville entertainments given for pa trons of the hotel. He is now married and has two children. His degre* of Ph. D. was conferred in 1895. RURIK LILJA'S CASE Sow Receiving Treatment In Chi- cago— Fund for His Care. Rurik Lilja, the 6-year-old Minneapolis I boy recently badly bitten by a mad dog, j has arrived in Chicago. His father has j received a letter from A. Lagorio, director j of the Pasteur Institute In that city, an- I ncuncing the safe arrival of Mrs. Lilja ; and her son. The letter says that the boy I was at once given the Pasteur treatment. He will be given eighteen, perhaps twenty days of treatment, at the end of which time he will have passed the danger point. Mr. Lagorio says that a comfort able boarding plaoe has been found tor him and that he will receive the very best attendance obtainable. "The little fellow was very badly bit ten." writes Mr. Lagorio, "in the most dangerous part of the body—the lips and noso, and it was well that he was brought here for prompt treatment. "The usual fee in such cases is $150, but to accommodate this case, where it will be difficult to raise the money, we have reduced the charge to $100, with his board thrown in." Little Rurik's friends are hopeful of raising the amount needed within a few days. Up to date $33.50 has been sub scribed. The contributions are: River side Sunday school, $10; Mrs. T. 'B. Walker, $10; F. G. Wood, $2.50; W. H. Johnson, superintendent of the poor, $2.50; C. H. Brown, $2.50; Mrs. P. McMillan, $2; E. W. Murphy, $2; W. M. Russell, $2. All subscriptions should be sent to W.

A True Story Last Bpring a Minneapolis representative of the STATE MUTUAL LIFE ASSURANCE COMPANY OF WORCESTER, MASS., wrote a policy on the life of a well known young man on the East Side. At the time the applicant was well, vigorous, with an excellent record, from a medical point of view, and ap parently had every reasonable promise of a long life. He has just died after a short illness, and the State Mutual pays the claim. This is a very short story and has been told so often that it seems hackneyed, but it is none the less true. Any man who needs insurance and defers taking it incurs a serious and an unjustifiable risk. Every man who is a good risk now is to be come a poor one, and he cannot be any too quick in capitalizing bis taeadth. The old STATE MUTUAL is too well known to require recom mendation, and its policies are under the Massachusetts insur ance law. Your age and address to either of the undersigned will secure a specimen of the new State Mutual policy. C. W. VAN TUYL, GENERAL AGENT, 505-9 Lumber Exchange. SPECIAL AGENTS. AUGUSTUS WARREN, GEO. B.

The sixteen associations which make up the Minnesota Young Women's Christian Associations were fully represented Satur day at the convention held in the music hall at Macalester college. The opening hour was devoted to "The Study of the Life of a Friend of God" by Miss Ruth Paxson. This was followed by an explana tion of the student volunteer movement and a plea for attention to its work by William B. Pettus, traveling secretary of tho organization. An important feature of the morning was the report of the state secretary. Miss Mary Ward, supplemented by brief detailed reports from each association, up on which Miss Ward and others com mented. Miss Ward reported the reorgan ization of the association at Windom in stitute, considerable work in Duluth, with a view towards organizing a new city as sociation, the holding of a county conven tion in Dodge county, where the work has been strengthened by the organization of two new circles at Mantorville and El more. This report and those of the asso ciation showed that there had been gains in every direction, membership, bible study classes, mission study classes and student volunteers. The report of the treasurer showed that the work had been carried on with an ex penditure of less than $700, which included the salary of the secretary and her expen ses. For the coming year, however, $850 must be provided to do the work planned. Miss Effie K. Price gave an informal talk on the means provided by the associa tion for standardizing the work, the pub lications, conventions and conferences and the necessity for using these to bring the work up to a high mark. Before taking the pledges for the state work for the coming year, Miss Price analyzed tact fully the situation in Minnesota, pointing out that this state had been regarded as a weak slater in the American committee but that it had now reached a point where this title can be left behind, if the work is given the support it needs and merits. While emphasizing the particular fields row waiting for work, Duluth and St. Cloud and Moorehead normal schools, pointed out in the report of the state com mittee, she mentioned especially the need of a campaign of education on what the Y. W. C. A. stands for. Such a campaign will more than pay for itself in the money returns. The state committee had recom mended that $1,000 be raised for the state work and of this the associations were asked to pledge $350; aearly the whole amount was assured before the close of the meeting. Special preparations were made by the Macalester students for the basket lunch eon at nocn. Tables were set and prettily decorated and coffee was served.
