Mfss Haley of Chicago to Address
Minnesota Educators.
Booker T. a*hlutun Will Also Be
' In Attendance at the Con
A prominent speaker of the Minnesota
Educational association meeting, in St.
Paul, Dec. 26-28, will be Miss Margaret
A. Haley of the Chicago Teachers" Fed
eration. With Miss Catherine Goggin,
Miss Haley led the flght against the cor
porations of the state of Illinois, which
resulted in the recent supreme court de
cision that the capital stock of corpora
tions Is taxable property. This decision
vill add millions of dollars of revenue to
the city of Chicago alone, and will re
lieve the embarrassed state of the school
board's finances.
In the beginning, the fight Just ended
•was ridiculed, and the people who be
lieved anything could be accomplished to
*orc<» corporations to pay their share of
i^iSTlc expense were few. The work of
pushing the investigation of conditions
and the lawsuits which followed was done
•wholly by the Teachers' Federation and
at an expense of less than $6,000.
Miss Haley, who is a pretty young
woman, made an address last week be
fore the Boston teachers, in which she
told the story of winning the flght against
intrenched corporate greed in Chicago.
The story is so simple and straight-for
■ward that it is very impressive as well
&s significant.
Miss Haley explained that the way in
•which the teachers were drawn in the
case was through their failing to receive
the increased salaries promised them be
cause of insufficient revenues. In seek
ing to discover the reason for the short
age some of the teachers simply Btum
foled upon the fact that there had been a
failure to assess the capital stock of va
rious important corporations. They con
sulted the records and found not only no
assessments such as the law required, but
no statements to the assessor by the tax-
Bble corporations.
Persistent efforts to induce the board
of equalization to tax the corporations
having failed, the suit to compel them to
do so was instituted. The board declared
It could not be sued, but the legal pro
ceedings went on and went against the
board. Dominated by corporation attor
neys, the board then abolished the estab
lished rule for determining the value of
franchises and made a new one. This
new rule is the one pronounced fraudu
lent by the decision of the supreme court.
In conclusion, Miss Haley said:
We haven't finished yet. We have more
Seork to do.
We are ashamed of Chicago—ashamed of
her dirty streets, her bad public service, her
badly-crippled schools, her poorly paid serv
ants. We mean to clean those things up, and
to clean politics up, too. But not by bring
ing the schools into politics; we hope to
take them out. We mean to work on the
assumption that public officers are elected to
do their duty; and If they don't—as in the
cese of the board of equalization—we'll know
the reason why.
A special reception will be arranged for
Miss Maley on the Thursday afternoon
of convention week, which Mrs. George
Harrison, president of* the Minneapolis
Teachers' Club, will assist in arranging.
In the evening Miss Haley will be one
of the guests of honor at the big general
reception at the Ryan, at which the
teachers of the state will be received by j
the officers of the association—Governor
Van Sant, Mrs. E. M. La Penotiere, presi
dent of the Minnesota Federation of
"Women's Clubs; Mrs. Harrison and Miss
Bonnie Snow of the Teachers' Club, and
The interest in Miss Haley's personal
ity and in her subject will be in dan
ger of eclipse only by one speaker—
Booker T. Washington, whose promise to
be present at the meeting was announced
early in the season. More recently se
cured speakers are Orville T. Bright, su
perintendent of Cook county schools, who
will speak for the county superintendents,
and L. C. Lord of Charleston, 111., for
merly president of the Moorhead Normal
school, whose address on "A Modern Sir
Galahad," will come Thursday evening.
Two important exhibits will be prepared
and placed at Hotel Ryan by the Joint ef
forts of the Woman's Civic League of St.
(Paul and the Minneapolis Improvement
league. One of these will be the entire
educational exhibit from the Pan-Ameri
can exposition, where it won a gold
medal. The other will show the develop
ment of industrial work through all of
the school grades and its fruits in the
commercial industries.

Straw hat styles for next year are "Just

fort of the Panama hat to get back to the
first principles of construction and form.
The new shape is exactly similar to that
'worn in South American countries. It
resembles very much the form of Uncle
Reuben's straw hat years ago, immediate

of its unprotected condition.

Local Student* of Social and Eco
nomic Conditions Differ on
That Point.
Dun's review for the week ending Nov.
9 says that the cost of living In the
United States has increased 9-10 of 1 per
cent for the month of October and 7 per
cent as compared with the same date last
year, and that the cost of living has now
reached the highest point of the decade.
In commenting upon this statement,
two of the professors of economics at
the state university do not exactly agree
as to what the status of the wage-earner
is under the increased cost of living and
the increased wage. Dr. Frank L. Mc-
Vey is of the opinion that while the
laborer 'is receiving a higher wage than
formerly, he is in reality getting a lower
real wage than at the opening of the
decade. Dr. W. W. Folwell believes this
to be true as far as salaried positions go,
but in the case of the wage earner be
lleveg that he is in all probability receiv
ing a better actual wage than at the open
ing of the decade. The laborer who then
received $1 per day is now receiving $2,
while, of course, the cost of living has In
creased also, but not to the same extent.
Will There Be a Reaction.
In speaking of the causes that operated
to bring about an Increase in the cost of
living per capita, Dr. McVey mentioned:
Increased wages due to increased demand
for labor and a resulting higher price on
account of an enlarged demand; short
crops, as seen in wheat of last year and
potatoes, apples, etc., in the present year;
arbitrary rise in price by combinations in
food products and a reaction from the
long period of low prices since 1893. Cost
of living has reached a high point and in
consequence there will probably be a reac
tion followed by a. falling off in demand
and lower prices. The laborer of to-day,
though he is receiving high wages, is re
ceiving a lower real wage than at the
opening of the decade.
Dr. Folwell'ai Analysis.
Dr. Folwell believes that the rise of
prices could not be attributed to any
single cause. The increased consum
ing power of the working people of the
United States, due to higher wages, has '
operated to bring about an increase in
cost of living. Their imaginations have
been affected because of the increased
wages and their demands have according
ly increased. All suppliers and dealers
work upon this and hence are able to in
crease prices without any trouble and
along many lines. But In the case of such !
goods as kerosene and steel products, the
producers endeavor to get large sales at j
moderate prices. Shortage of food,
products might operate to increase the !
cost of living as in the case of the potato
shortage, especially in the particular lo- I
cality where there was a big shortage, j
Again, the plentiful supply of currency I
has an effect upon the imagination of the
laborer and he is more willing to buy at
an increased price.
Dr. Folwell said: "The climax has not
been reached, for we have not reached the
culminating point of prosperity from
which we will descend Into the abyss for
the reason that the country is not loaded
with enormous debts arising from specula
tion. People of the country are not in
debt because of foolish speculation and
panic will not strike us until we become
itwolved in a mass of foolish debts. The
lesson for us is to keep out of foolish
Subscriptions Will Be Received Be-
Sinnlnir Next Thursday—
Thompson Comes First. j
In response to many inquiries it Is an
nounced that subscriptions for the New
Century lectures will be received at the
Metropolitan music store beginning next
Thursday morning. As these lectures
supply a field that will not otherwise be
filled this year, since the Institute of
Arts and Letters is not offering a lecture
course, it is expected that the subscrip
tion list will be very large. Subscribers
have the first choice of seats. All ar
rangements are now complete. The course
consists of eight lectures besides the
preliminary ones by Ernest Seton-
Thompson on Nov. 23. These two wild
animal lectures will be given in the
Lyceum theater; Plymouth church, where
the eight lectures of the regular course
are to be given, not being lighted in such
a way that it can be easily darkened in
the afternoon.
For the eight lectures the terms of sub
scription will be $3, $4 and $5. Including
the two Seton-Thompson lectures thej
terms will be slightly higher. A season
orogram of the course follows:

The demand for the new shape is said
to be brisk—in some parts of the coun

old shapes principally and letting Panama,

the price—from $15 to $500.

A Bunch of Eleven Decisions Was
Handed Down To-day.
The North-WcVitein Road \» Granted
a New Trial There—Stanoii- *
field's Note Caae. ' |
Eleven decisions were handed down by
the supreme' court this morning, the low
er courts being reversed in two cases.
No decision was given in the cases
against Fred A. Briggs, who will not
know his fate for at least another week.
The North-Western road gets a new
trial in the action brought by Michael
Pohl, of Sleepy Eye, involving the right
of the village to open a street across the
railway company's tracks to a width of
77 feet. The court toolds that it may not
operate the street wider than 66 feet, ex
cept on petition of all ownera of ad
joining property.
Lyman L. Stanchfleld, of Minneapolis,
went into bankruptcy and was discharged
July 8, 1899. Among his liabilities was a
note of $105, payable to John L. Smith.
After the discharge from the bankruptcy
Smith avers that Stanchfleld made him
a verbal promise that he would yet pay
the note. The Minneapolis municipal court
held that the debt was thereby revived,
and gave judgment for Smith. This is
reversed by the supreme court on the
ground thait no time was set for payment,
and Smith did not ask Stanchfleld to re
new the note.
Three St. Paul street laborers get judg
ment against the street railway. They
were sprinkling ithe streets on the night
of July 8, 1900, when a car running at
high speed hit them. Verdict* of the lower
court are affirmed, giving Joseph Lasch
inger $1,000, Patrick O'Brie» $250 and
Thomas O'Mara $50.
William J. Teal, a minor, employed as a
brakeman on the railway tracks of the
American Mining company near Virginia,
was injured by reason of a defective
brake. The evidence showed that the car
was turned over to the mining company
in a defective condition and that both
companies knew it to be so. The case
was taken to Hennepin county, and the
Bastern Minnesota demurred to the com
plaint. The supreme court overrules the
demurrer and holds that Teal has cause
of action against both companies.
The syllabi of to-day's decisions are as

In this case the maker of a promissory
note agreed to pay the debt, if the payee
would give him time. In the absence of proof
that the offer was accepted and a definite
time fixed, such offer did not lustlfy a finding
that the debt had been revived. Order re

A Chicago Man Who Knew How to Do It.
J. H. Binder is a big man, but not over
grown; neither is he a dime museum
freak nor a trained athlete. He is simply
a good, hearty stout fellow who found out
how to eat for strength. Of course, he
didn't lift five tons with his arms, nor
with his back, but he made his big lift
with each one of the thirty principal
groups of muscles, and the sum of all his
lifts equals a little more than the sum
of 10,000 pounds. When questioned about
his diet and habits of life, he declared he
found no food equal in strength-giving
properties to a certain dextrinized cereal.

not an enthusiastic canoeman. He is con
vinced that "for ways that are dark and
ways that are queer" the birchen canoe is
'Mr. Hale's sudden and unconquerable
aversion to a kind of craft which furnishes
delightful diversion for others more pro
ficient in its use is due to his determined
but unsuccessful attempt to master a
canoe one day last week at Spirit Lake.
The canoe was as refractory in his hands
as a buckißg broncho with a tenderfoot.
It finally ran away with him, much to the
alarm of the other members of the party,
who lost track of him "for quite a while."
Mr. Hale had his eyes on a certain duck
pass at one end of the lake, and, believ
ing that it would be a strategic point from
which to bag a few ducks, he headed the
canoe that way, alone and unaided, leav
ing the other members of the party, in
cluding his son, Frank C. Hale, to follow
along shore afoot.
Those at all familiar with canoeing
know that while it is a very easy matter

That was Mr. Hale's fix. He failed to
take into consideration the fact that the
elements were against him. He battled
heroically to make the pass, but In spite
of him the prow of the canoe kept head

dled desperately, first on one side and
then on the other, and in his despair
quite forgot how to use his "dip" in order
to keep his bearings.
After a half hour's fl'ght he was quite
