.Special Agent Uuttemoa Will Rec
ommend Extension of Service.
G. Gutterson, one of the three special
agents in the rural free delivery mail
service, has been at work in Hennepin
county for some time investigating mail
routes. He has recommended seven
routes and will investigate four more.
If the list is approved, Hennepin county
will have twenty-six In operation.
The recommendations are as follows:
Two routes from Dayton, one southwest
toward Champlin. and one southwest
down th? east side of the Crow river, re
turning'in Meeker county on the opposite
bank; two from Rogers, one to pass
Fletcher postoffice, reaching Corcoran,
th© other passing through Hassan to
Burschville; another northwest from
Hamel to Corcoran and Burschville; one
northwest from Loretto into Greenwood
township and another at Maple Plain to
cover the balance of Independence town
ship. Mr. Gutterson is investigating two
routes at Eden Prairie, one at Minne
tonka Mills and one at Richfield.
The demand for the service is great,

Other Senses Make Up C. D. Evans'
Lack of Sight.
He Hat Some Valuable Idea* on the
Kdncatlon of Similar Un
C. D. Evans, of Janesville, Wis., who
has entertained thousands on the streets
of Minneapolis during the last four weeks
with an Instrument of his own invention,
playing the fife, bass drum and cymbals
at one time, is as pleasing a conversa
tionalist as he is a clever musician. Mr.
Evans has been blind since childhood. For
several years he was a piano tuner until
his nerves gave out. Since then he has
pleased and instructed multitudes
throughout the country. His season is
almost, ended. During the winter he will
perfect the instrument which he uses and
form plans for the summer campaign.
He is a cousin of Mrs. H. H. Bell, of
this city, and a brother of Mrs. Ellery
Saxe whose husband was an engineer
killed in the Milwaukee wreck at Eggles
ton a short time ago.
Mr. Evans' career is interesting in the
extreme. He is a graduate of the Wis
consin school for the blind at Janesville,
where he studied the violin nine years.
He also studied under Professor Schoen
feldt, of Milwaukee, and Professor G.
Gutolman, of Philadelphia. Since 1893
he has been engaged in perfecting his con
trivance which furni3h.es so much enter
tainment, and believes that room for im
provement remains.
Hla Street Concert*.
Mr. Evans has a barytone voice which
has received some cultivation and sings
with guitar accompaniment in addition to
j playing violin solos. The condition in
I connection with his performances that Mr.
I Evans regrets is that he cannot give his
concerts in a regular business-like man
ner and sell tickets. He is entirely ovit
jof the organ-grinder class. His claim is
that he gives a full equivalent for all the
I money he receives. The matter of recom
pense lies wholly with his auditors. Mr.
Evans says he does not own the street
and anyone is free to listen with, or with
out pay if he wishes. In a sense he is
preaching, although not a preacher. He
reaches the drinking and carousing class
with, his simple songs in a way that no
one else does.
The song repertory which Mr. Evans
has contains simple sentimental ballads.
The '•Tram»" song takes with the people
and is freauently called for: ' "O, Where
Is My Wandering Boy To-night?" is a
favorite. Mr. Evans formerly believed
that comic songs were the thing, but found
that the people were hungering for fine
sentimental music given in a plain way.
"The Holy City" and "The Lost Chord"
are too high class for violin music on the
street. Simple melodies and not such
as would be given in an indoor concert
are wanted. "Nearer, My God, to Thee"
in double stops. "Massa's in the Cold,
Cold Ground," and the "Suwanee River,"
anything of like nature in double stops,
and waltzes of his own composition he
finds to suit the tastes of the sidewalk
Doesn't Pone an Blind.
Just now 'Mr. Evans is trying a new
typewriter. He has used one for eighteen
years and believes that a blind person can
use a typewriter as well as a person with
full sight. Mr. Evans has advanced views
on the blind question. He endeavors to
keep the fact that he is without sight in
the background while playing. Said be:
"I am an advocate of this idea, that blind
persons need no special contrivance for
their convenience. The blind ought to
adjust themselves to the world against
which they must rub and not ask the
world to adjust itself to their needs.
"I am not an advocate of special schools
for the blind. They should be educated
along with those who can see. Of course,
it is necessary to have raised letters,
maps and diagrams, but if the blind are
educated wholly by themselves they do
not learn the world in which they must
operate. They have to learn that after
ward by hard knocks. Those educated as
others are more practical. Chicago is
trying the plan in six schools and finds it
a success, although there Is a state blind
"The blind must learn to see without
eyes—it is possible. Persons watch me
get around without help and say that I
can see. This is the most cutting thing
ihat I have to bear, tine thought that I
may be considered a humbug. I can de
tect light, but my wife, who is blind sine©
childhood and. cannot see a ray of light,
is capable of doing everything in connec
tion with household work as if she could
see. She can bake good bread, can get up
a dinner, can thread a fine needle, cut
out patterns and make clothing for the
children, and she does all this—not well
for a blind person, but well in itself.
Remarkable KeennesN of Sense.
"The 'seeing' of blind persons is the re
sult of the more perfect development of
the remaining senses. 'Seeing' is also ac
complished by facial perception which is
more or less developed. I have it to some
extent, my wife has developed it to an
unusual degree. She can count trees and
objects as high as the fax;e several feet
away and, in the case of large objects,
several rods away. It would be Impossible
to run her against an object without her
Mr. Evans believes that the blind as a
class should not be considered any differ
ent from other persons. There is great
ignorance exists about the blind as a
Mr. and Mrs. Evans have two fine chil
dren. Mrs. Evans has returned home; her
husband will visit friends here after the
coW weather interferes with his business.

I Anton Oonk Fatally Hurt at the
Short Line Bridge.
With every limb broken, and a severe
I fracture at the base of the skull, Anton
] Oonk died at Asbury hospital last evening
after several hours' of intense suffering.
The injuries were received by a fall from
the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul short
line bridge, Just below Franklin avenue,
yesterday afternoon. Oonk was a sub
foreman on the structural work and had
charge of the operation of a construction
handcar, used for carrying material out
onto the bridge. In crossing a portion of
the new bridge under the west end, where
i the temporary ties are three or four feet
; apart, and very slippery by the recent
j storm, Oonk slipped. In falling he struck
j the masonry and then fell Into a shallow
i portion of the stream, from which he was
recovered in a very short time by his
j brother, Henry, also employed on the
j bridge. He was taken to Asbury hospital
and died in a few hours. Oonk's home
was in Milwaukee and the body will be
sent there this evening.

Settlement of the Northern Paciflc-Bur
llngton controversy has progressed to that
point where the formation of two pro
prietary companies lor promoting har
mony is being discussed. Joint control of
the Burlington by the Union Pacific and
Morgan-Hill interests is considered essen
tial to the settlement. One proprietary
company Is to take over such etock and
securieites of the Northern Pacific and
Great Northern roads as are owned by the
contending parties. The other company
will lease and operate the Burlington. It
will be controlled jointly by the Union
Pacific and the Northern Pacific-Great
Northern proprietary company.
A statement has been made in Wall street
that President Harris of the Burlington
system would resign and that his place
would be taken by Vice President Darius
Miller of the Great Northern. This state
ment was not confirmed. Mr. Miller has
been spoken of as the general traffic di
rector of the Northern Pacific-Great
Northern-Burlington combination.
The New York Times to-day says:
" 'The tangible evidence of the settle
ment of . the northwestern railway situa
tion became known yesterday when It
leaked out that E. H. Harriman, James
Stlllman, Jacob H. Schiff, Norman B.
Ream, Robert Bacon and H. McK. Twom
bly had been elected into the board of
directors of the Chicago, Burlington &
Quincy railroad at the stockholders' an
nual meeting held last week in Chicago.
" 'All the various interests ere repre
sented in the list given. E. H. Harriman
and Jacob H. Schiff represent the Union
Pacific interests. James Stillman is gen
erally supposed to represent the interests
of the Rockefellers, who are closely iden

man B. Ream represents the interests of
James J. Hill and the Great Northern
railway; Robert Bacon is a member of

company is the depository for most of the
bonds and other evidences of indebted
ness. No statement has yet been ob

Columbus and Cincinnati, a line from Cin
cinnati to Toledo, -and, possibly, a lino
from Teledo to Columbus. *
It will include about 415 miles of road.
The syndicate may .'abandon the idea of
extending the Northern Ohio traction line

Militia Artillerymen Will Profit by
the Chance to See the
Captain Charles C. Bennett, In com
mand of Battery B of the Minnesota Na
tional Guards, is highly gratified over the
decision of the war department to sta
tion two new batterieß of artillery at
Port Snelling. The decision is evidently
the result of General Miles' recent visit
to Snelling, for it is at his suggestion
that favorable action is about to be taken
in the matter.
Said Captain Bennett:
We have been trying hard for a great many
years to have at least one -battery located
at Fort Snelling, and our congressmen and
senators who have at length succeeded in
impressing upon the army officials the neces
sity of such an addition to the Snelling arma
ment are to be congratulated. It 1» a great
acquisition, and will not only be a good thing
for Fort Snelling, but will considerably in
crease the efficiency ot the national guard
battery in this city.
We are bound to be greatly benefited by
suggestions and instruction which we will
be in a position to receive from trained
artillerymen, the absence of which has been
greatly missed since the removal of Battery
F from Fort Snelling fourteen years ago.
Two batteries will mean the addition of 200
men and twelve pieces of artillery to the
post. The only drawback I can see to the
establishment of these batteries at Snelling
is the probable lack of room on the gov
ernment reserve for necessary maneuvers.
From 800 to 1,000 acres of land will be re
quired for the batteries to go through the
proper military maneuvers, and nowhere near
that space is available now. I see nothing
to prevent the government from acquiring
additional land adjoining the reserve, by
lease or otherwise, to accommodate the bat
teries. More buildings will be needed also
to accommodate the artillerymen-
W. A. Steward* Father Will Pay tor
Recovery of Body.
The body of William A. Steward, who
jumped into the tail race of the Galaxy
mill a week ago Thursday, has not been
discovered. The family is very anxious
to secure possession of the body and the
young man's father, C. W. Steward, 10
East Lake street, has offered a reward for
the recovery of the hody, in order to stim
ulate a search. If it is found by diving,
dragging or the use of explosives, he will
pay a reward of $100. If the body is
found floating the reward will be $50.
Steward was born in Minneapolis. Jan.
I Eyf Jii§ -
1, 1876, and attended school at the. South
side high and the Minnesota Business col
lege, from wihich he graduated. He was
a member of the Modern Samaritans, the
Modern Woodmen, and was also a member
of the Simpson Methodist church. Re
cently he had teen in the employ of the
Jones, Mclntyre & Co.
Steward was a well known member of
the state militia. He was second lieu
tenant of Company M, Fifteenth Minneso
ta volunteers at Camp Meade and Camp
MoKenzie, and afterward second and first
lieutenant of Company E, Fourth Minne
sota. Before the Spanish war toe was a

Think Day After " ThauksuiviuK
Should Be a Holiday.
Under a new rule of the board of edu-'
cation there will hereafter be no holiday
| on the Fridays following Thanksgiving,
i and the other legal holidays of the year
! when those days fall on Thursday. Hith
erto the custom has been to give Friday
| also under such circumstances. The
j teachers are universally not pleased with
j the new rule In its application to Thanks
giving and are preparing a petition to the
board asking that the Thanksgiving Fri
day be made an exception to the rule.
Teachers have quite generally been ac
customed to take this four days of the
I Thanksgiving seeson to go out of town
for family reunions, and the new rule will
bar them absolutely from this time
honored privilege. The contention of the
board Is that legal holidays have in
creased so'greatly in numbers of late
; years . that there is no call for extras.
Besides, the board, beginning this year,
concedes c full two "weeks' vacation at
Christmas, and the teachers, they say,
should make arrangements to do their
out-of-town visiting at this time. The
teachers' petition will be presented at the
next meeting of the board, which -will b%
a few days before Thanksgiving.
Lorlng' Park: Property Valued at
Le«H Than $16,000.
John Delaittre, J. B. Gilfillan, John
Crosby, A. E. Eichhorn and F. L. Palmer,
appraisers appointed to place a value upon
the Swan Turnblad property adjoining
Loring Park, decided that it is worth $14,
--212 entire, or $13,642 allowing the owner
the privilege of removing the house.
The board of appraisers visited the park
in the morning and in the afternoon met
at the coupthous-3 and listened to the ar
guments at John Lind for Mr. Turnblad
and J. C. Rockwood for the park board.
After an executive session the decision
was rendered as above.
Mr. Turnblad asked the board for the
amount which he paid for the property,
taxes and interest at 6 per cent for i two
years. This amounted to $30,000. The
board offered $15,000.
Mr. Turnblad says he expected at least
$25,000 and was willing: to have- allowed
the city $5,000 for park purposes. J. C.
Taylor, the original owner, is said to
have made the statement that the apprais
al in 1884 was $18,000. Mr. Taylor, in
May, 1885, sold several adjoining lots to
the board for an average of between $80
and $90 a foot. ... ,
Mall Clerks Exempt.
A mail clerk was drawn for jury duty this
term, but he claimed exemption on the
ground that he was a government official.
Judge Simpson decided that the man was
right and, furthermore, that he would not
interfere with the mail service. An official
of the Milwaukee road tried to secure the re
lease of an electrician on one of the trains,
who was absolutely essential to its operation.
Judge Simpson said no.
