years of the unjust sentence before his ae
. user revealed his innocence on her death
bed. He said that he was tried in Bralnerd
and that the evidence the prosecution intro
duced was so absurd that in his anger he
shied a cuspidor at the prosecuting attor
ney ami an Inkstand at the judge. This rash
act, he said, he believed was the cause of
his conviction. The police took no stock in
his tale.

The decision of Representative Carl

in the legislative list .that will be much
nought after by the ambitious ones of that
district. Already four from the eighth
ward alone have signified an intention to
go after the succession, while the thir
teenth word and the country towns are
yet to be heard from. The list as at pres
ent made up consists of Frank Forbes. F.
C. Campbell, Douglas Flske and George P.
Flannery. The country towns, it is said,
will insist this year upon being given one
of the two representatives, and to assure
it their present plans are to unite on one
candidate and trust to a numerous divi
sion of the ward vote to carry their man
The country towns will probably poll a
considerably larger vote than at the last
election, owing to the prosperity of the
manufacturing towns of Hopkins and St.
Louis Park. All the establishments there
are running full-handed and it is expected
that the country's candidate will be able
to corral most of their votes. Represen
tative L. H. Johnson will be a candidate
for renomination, and the present outlook
Is that he will get it.

Lumbermen Think the McCarthy
Act Detrimental.
They Won't Stick to Work Because
They Can Draw Their
For the past two seasons lumbermen
have been put to great trouble to get
competent men both for their local and
outside operations, and the prospect Is
that the situation this winter will be
worse than ever before. Lumbermen say
they have been able to pick -up men enough
of their kind, but it has been wholly Im
possible to keep them at work. In most
cases they proved to be inferior workmen
and a week or two at a stretch is their
The lumbermen are agreed that the Mc-
Carthy law, passed by the legislature
three year? ago, is in large part respon
sible for the changed situation, and prob
ably they will not let another regular ses
sion of the legislature pass without mak
ing en attempt to have It repealed or, at
least, amended.
"The situation is about this," says Ald
erman John Sibley, a veteran employer of
labor in the woods and at the mills. "In
the old days we paid our men off at the
end of the season and they came back to
the city with their winter's wages in their
pockets. Under the McCarthy law a man
can demand his money any day and in
cash instead of time checks, a_s before.
The result of this is that men weary of
work in a week or two and insist upon
taking a spell for a spree. They come and
get their money and off they go. They
will be gone a week or more, and in many
cases do not return at all. Another re
sult of the law has been that saloons and
other dives follow us right Into the woods
and constantly tempt the men to quit work
and enjoy life. Under the old system
there was no cash afloat and the saloons
found it no object to keep close to the
"My experience with men has been most
exasperating the past two seasons. It
seems as though the old breed of lumber
men had played out. iMy men have not
kept steadily at their tasks and every
other camp in the woods has had the same
trouble. The men with families who work
in the sawmills in the summer and come
into the woods in winter are not many.
They appear to shun the woods for other
work, and in their places we get an irre
sponsible lot of fellows, harvest workers,
hoboes, etc., who either won't or can't
stand the work. And they are an awful
particular lot of people, too. I can re
member when I used to walk eighty miles
into the woods carrying my pack, and I
was mighty glad) to get the chance. Now
men wont walk four miles to camp. You
have got to send a rig after them.
"While the old stock Is undoubtedly
playing out, in my opinion the McCarthy
law Is the main cause of the present diffi
culty, and I want to see it repealed. It
was evidently intended to benefit the men.
In effect it has been a positive curse to
them end has caused great loss to the em
\ew« papers, Px«*achera, Lecturers
Are Good, Says Dr. Vincent.
Dr. George E. Vincent of the University
of Chicago lectured at the Unitarian
i church Saturday evening and Sunday aft
ernoon, continuing two Stanley Hall
courses of lectures begun a fortnight ago.
Speaking on "Thel Mechanism of Public
Opinion," Dr. Vincent called attention
to the methods taken in Europe to pre
vent too rapid spread of ideas. In Vienna
a party of ten persons cannot remain to
gether after 10 o'clock at night without
a permit from the police. In Russia if
three persons gather on the street to talk
they are commanded to disperse.
Freedom of communication, Dr. Vincent
said, is practically confined to the Anglo-
Saxon peoples, among whom there is a
strong feeling in behalf of publicity.
Describing the different means of com
municating ideas, the lecturer traced the
development of railways and their com
binations, which have progressed "until
we can almost speak of the railway sys
tem of the United States." He gave a
graphic description of the great daily
paper. Other mechanisms of public opin
ion were political parties, lecturers,
preachers, society and the home circle.
Political speakers, he said, were fur
nished with the same ammunition, and
gave "the same speech with different
stories." Society, with all its frills, is
at bottom a means for the interchange
of ideas. The family dinner table, with
Its conversation, fixes opinion and belief,
and civilization first began when people
began to eat at stated times.
Sir Thomas More'a "Utopia" was the
theme yesterday afternoon. Dr. Vinvent
pointed out the influences upon More's
early life which manifest themselves in
his novel. The story was regarded in
More's day as an amusing, but visionary
idea, satirizing the abuses and follies of
the day, but in the course of time most of
More's visions have become realities.

C. Seeley at Y. M. C. A.
Memorial exercises for the late Isaac C.
Seeley, held at the Y. M. C. A. yesterday
afternoon, were attended by hundreds.
Members of the association, friends of the
work and business associates of the de

Halloek, Mr. Seeley's pastor, read the
scripture lesson and offered prayer. Thom
as Cochran of St. Paul spoke on "Mr.
Seeley's Connection With the State As
sociation Work in Early Days." Mr. Coch
ran said that while tie rest who were
connected with the Y. M. C. A. in early
days were interested in the work Mr.
Seeley was the only one who served con
tinuously for nearly thirty years.
ID. C. Bell called attention to the fore
sight of 'Mr. Seeley who was instrumental

Republican Committeemen Have a
Nice Point to Decide.
Its Peritetnatlon Mmt Also Be Deter
mined Before the Next State
The republican state committee will
have to decide two important points about
the make-up of the next state convention.
In the first place, shall the apportionment
be based on the vote for President McKlnley,
or the vote for Governor Van Sant?
Second—Shall the delegate -at-largo farce
be perpetuated another year?
Two years ago the state committee de
cided to base the apportionment on the
McKinley vote of 1896, rather than on the
Eustis vote of 1898, which was far from
being the republican strength. It also
voted to continue the delegate-at-large
system, which was engrafted in 1896 in
order to carry the convention for Clough.
It gives each county five delegates at
large. This more than doubles the rep
resentation of the smaller counties, and
swamps the three cities with 400 delegates
at large to their 15.
A system that gives Cook county five
delegates for her 84 republican votes, and
Henepin 112 delegates for over 26,000
votes, can have no defense. It is worse
even than the rankly unequal congres
sional reapporuonment. It is justified
by some on the ground that a large state
convention of over 1,000 delegates was un
wieldy and at times uncontrollable. The
injustice of the thing is so apparent that
there is some prospect of a change this
The McKinley vote of 1900 was not so
large as that of 1896. This was due. to
the constitutional amendment shutting off
foreign-born citizens with only first pa
pers from voting. With the same ratio,
one delegate for 250 votes or major frac
tion, and five delegates at large, the con
vention next year would have 1,172 dele
gates, Just eight less than the 1900 con
State and National Votes.
Based on the Van Sant vote, the con
vention would have 1,021 delegates. The
following table shows the apportionment
for last year and what it would be next
year at the same ratio, taking both the
McKinley and Van Sant votes:.

Ft. Yates Traffic Diverted to Its
Missouri River Extension.
The Extension Will Also Divide the
Grain and Cattle Shipments
With the Milwaukee.
The extension of the Soo line towards
the Missouri river cause another shift
ing of the stage routes of the Missouri
river section of the Dakotas. The Soo is
about completed to Pollock, within twenty
miles of the river and Fort Yates. A
large majority of the freight and passen
ger business for the fort and all of that
part of interior Dakota will be done by
way of the new station. For years the
stage lines from Bismarck have had this
traffic which in summer they divided with
the boats. The Northern Pacific secured
the haul to Bismarck. The new arrange
ment gives the business to the Soo. The
Missouri slope country is discussing the
purpose of two surveying parties which
began work in that part of North Dakota
a few days ago. It Is believed that the
Northern Pacific plans an extension from
Bismarck south along the river in order
to tap the Fort Yates country. Cattle is
the principal industry.
In addition to cutting the Northern Pa
cific out of considerable business the new
Soo extension brings the road into some
very choice territory hitherto monopo
lized by the Milwaukee. Cattle and wheat
shipments in the northern counties of
South Dakota east of the river are on the
increase. The Soo will divide a nice por
tion of this business with the Milwaukee.

The Rifle That Accidentally Killed
Joseph Trodden.
Shot down by the accidental discharge
of a rifle in the hands of Frank Martin,
a 12-year-old playmate, Joseph Trodden,
15 years old, of 42 E Indiana avenue, St.
Paul, died after seven minutes of suf
fering yesterday afternoon. The acci
dent occurred near the corner of Indiana
avenue and Starkey street, St. Paul. The
boys were fooling with a rifle which Mar
tin was carrying and the gun was dis
charged. The bullet severed the carotid
artery on the left side and lodged in the
back of the neck. Martin turned and ran,
but was arrested three hours later and is
held pending investigation. He lives with
his widowed mother at 21 College avenue.
Legislator* Favor Capital Stock: as
a Hants.
Local members of the legislature ex
press themselves in favor of a law which
will tax the Pullman Palace Car company
on the basis of their capital stock, in
stead of the present gross earnings basis.
It is believed that the report of the tax
commission will include such an enact
ment. ,' v; C- -o;■_-,' , -
■ The company at present pays 3 per cent
on business originating and ending in
Minnesota, and for 1899 paid only $319.05.
It has made a proposition through Sena
tor Horton of St. Paul to submit to a
2 per cent tax on a mileage basis, reckon
ing all business that passes through the
state. Such a tax could not be laid ex
cept by agreement, which would constitute
a contract and bar the state from adopt
ing any other method.
Lightening Traveled .".O Mile*.
A lineman for the Missouri and Kan- I
sas Telephone company was killed near
Colony, Kan., recently, by a bolt of light
ning which struck the wire apparently 30
miles away. There was no storm where
the men were working, and the nearest i
place where a tihunder atorm crossed the
wire was the 30 miles away, yet a ball of
blue flame danced along the wire and the :
lineman fell dead. The ways of the ele
ments are beyond calculation, but the I
effect of "Golden Grain Belt" beer upon I
the human system is readily understood.
It tones up the nerves, purifies the blood 1

who use it regularly. Telephone 486
