State Capitol News
State Authorities Don't Want to Pay
for Children in Parocuiul
St. Cloud's school board theatens to
bring au action testing the validity of the
law under which the state school funds
are now appropriated.
The law provides that counties and dis
tricts shall receive a share based on the
number of pupils who have attended at
least forty days during the previous year.
Many children in St. Cloud attend paroch
ial schools, and the city does not get
credit for such. The constitution pro
vides that the fund shall be apportioned
equally on a basis of school population,
and the St. Cloud people therefore claim
that they should have credit for every
person between the ages of ~> and 21.
The school board recently appealed to
the attorney general, who turned the
matter over to J. \V. Olsen, state super
intendent of schools. He informed the
St. Cloud board that he would continue to
observe the law until advised by com
petent legal authority that it is invalid.
By "competent legal authority," Mr.
Olsen would probably mean "'.he supreme
couri of Minnesota." There is no rea
son to think that he will change the pres
ent custom unless compelled by manda
mus proceedings. He holds that the law
is upheld by common sense, as the educa
tion of children in parochial schools costs
the school district nothing.

The Minnesota city that gets the new
state training school for girls must pro

supply, and a good sewer system.
The board of control has in these few
words outlined the demands that will be
made of the city that gets the school. In
a few days the cities that are bidding for
the institution will be asked to make their
proposals. The board will then visit each
proffered site and. look into the conditions.
It is hoped to decide on a location befor*
Dec. 1.

Bands in the Habit of Concei
to Surround Briton*.
iV*ew> York Sun Special Service
Bloemfontein, Nov. 12.—Small bands of
Boers have been operating lately in the
country about Winburg and Thaba N'Chu.
These bands maintain communication with
one another, their plan being that when
the British attack & particular detachment
all the others are quickly informed. They
then close in in an attempt to surround
the British. If they do not succeed in
this they snipe the British as they are re
turning to camp? These tactics oc
casionally make it necessary for Boer dis
patch riders to cross and recross the line
of blockhouses several times a day.
NortJ-Western Takes Advantage of
Milwaukee's Withdrawal.
Transfer of Passengers* 1 to Evade
Time Agreement 'Will Be
- initiated.
The North-Western road has gone the
Milwaukee "one better" in fast train serv
ice between Minneapolis and Chicago. It
has attached through sleepers to its fast
mail train, and by this action now has a
through train doing the- distance from
Chicago to Minneapolis in eleven hours,
and from Minneapolis to Chicago In twelve
hours and thirty-five minutes. V The Mil-,
j waukee will undoubtedly follow suit.
For a year or more both roads • have
evaded the time agreement by carrying
sleeping car passengers on fast trains.
The fast trains of each leave* Minneapolis
| at 6:25 in the evening and arrive in Chi
cago at 7 the next morning. The sleep
ing car passengers for Chicago on the
North-Western have been changing to the
| Chicago car at Hudson and those of the
Milwaukee at Hastings. Thus the agree
ment not to carry a through sleeper on
the. fast trains has been nominally ob
j served. The same arrangement has been
in force on the journey from Chicago to
Minneapolis, the sleeping car passengers
being forced to change at these "same
places. The time of the Milwaukee fast
mail from Chicago to Minneapolis is ten
hours and forty minutes.
Since the Milwaukee gave notice of
| withdrawal from the thirteen and oiie
; half-hour agreement there has been much
speculation as to what action would fol
low. Some of the passenger men have
advanced the opinion that the Milwaukee
was using the notice as a feeler, and
might not reduce the running time of its
through trains. It is now believed that
if this has been the Milwaukee's inten
tion, the action of the North-Western has
forced it into a position where it must
make the same reduction in time by fol
j lowing the same program or hurry its
plans for inaugurating a ten-hour service
between the two cities.
It is pointed out that the Xorth-West
ern is getting in better shape every day
for fast time competition ou the Chicago
run. A new train is now being fitted out
and will be ready inside of a week for
the Chicago service. It is understood
that this train will be used as the fast
one between here and Chicago.
J. T. Conley, assistant general passen
ger agent of the Milwaukee, said this
morning that the action of the Xorth-
Western was news to him. He said that
if such was the case the Milwaukee would
meet the improvement in service at least
as far as that one train was concerned.
J. P. Elmer, general passenger agent of
the Chicago Great Western, did not re
gard the move of the North-Western a3
important. He said that the Great West
ern would meet it if competition de
r Bethlehem Church Needs $2,000, and
Oliver Church $ti,OOO—Other
The presbytery of Minneapolis at an ad
journed meeting in Westminster church
yesterday approved the requests of two
churches for loans. Bethlehem requested
permission to borrow from the board of
church erection $2,000 to be used in com
pleting its chapel. Oliver church made a
request for a loan of $6,000. This sum,
with other money to be raised, will bring
the church into the hands of the Presby
terian church and will prevent its being
sold under foreclosure. The loan for
$22,000 which has been held for outsiders
has been scaled down so that something
over $6,000 will suffice. The board never
forecloses on mortgages while the se
curity is used for Presbyterian church
purposes. The presbytery placed Rev.
Sydney Phoenix, living in Stillwater, but
a member of this presbytery, on the re
tired list at his request.
Dr. J. B. Helwig of the First church
read a paper at the ministers' meeting
preceding the meeting of the presbytery,on
•'The Preaching That is Needed To-Day."
The paper was one he had read before the
last synod.
Charleston Exposition Would Like

tendent of schools for the transfer of the ex
hibit to Charleston for installation as part

tion. Dr. Jordan was compelled u> refuse
this request because several exhibitions had

A Prominent Police Official Siys It
Is Coming.
They Have Imposed I'pon the May
or's Uuuii Nature mid Gone
Too Far.
In about ten days Mayor Ames will be
back in town rejuvenated after his hunt
ing trip in the northern wilds, and then
look out for some interesting develop
ments along polite lines. This, at least,
is the word that has been passed around
among the elect and the information Is
gradually getting around among the In
terests likely to be affected by the prom
ised bracing up.
It appears that police affairs have been
getting a little too loose-jointed to suit
even the directing minds at headquar
ters, and promptly upon the return of the
mayor he will be acquainted with the
present conditions and asked to take a
hand in affairs and institute some badly
needed reforms.
"The truth of the matter is," said a prom
inent official of the police department to
day, "that while matters are in no such
shape as some of the preachers are trying
to muke out, there has been a disposition
on the part of certain saloon men to 'get
gay,' and the lime has undeniably come
when we have got to put on a check.
They have presumed too far on the may
or's good nature and all-around genial
Qualities and are due to have a jacking
up. Many of the saloons have been keep
ing open long beyond the legal hours, and
the fact that the policemen on the beats
have reported the fact time and time
again without any results, has tended to
convince the saloon men that it was a
case of 'everything goes' and that they
need have no fear of consequences. There
has been the same disposition on the part
of some other elements in the community
that, need police supervision, until things
have got to the pass where we have got
to bring them up with a sharp turn.
"The experience of the present admin
istration in this regard is no different,
however, than in other administrations.
It Is always the case that certain inter
ests will overstep their privileges at
times and have to be hauled up for a
little course of discipline. The mayor is
away and there is nothing that we can do
at present, but soon after his return just
watch out sharp and you will see some
thing drop."
He Accuses the City Government of
Protecting A lee.
Rev. T. E. Archer, pastor of the Broad
way Methodist church, preached a ser
mon Sunday morning, in the course of
which he gave his hearers a vivid pic
ture of existing social conditions in Min
neapolis. He referred to the Minneapolis
Tammany, and flatly accused members of
the police department of accepting bribes
for the protection of vice. Mr. Archer
spoke of the all-night saloons, cheap va
riety theaters, "palm gardens," and pri
vate dining-rooms, all of which he
charged were protected by the city gov
ernment. Said he:
For our size and weight Minneapolis has as
flourishing a Tammany organization in this
city as there is in any city in the union. The
live Tammany of Minneapolis should be dealt
with as the dead Tammany in New York has
beep dealt with; It should be stamped out.
Chief of Police Amea read Mr. Archer's
criticisms of the administration unmoved
this morning and apparently was unaf
fected by the reverend gentleman's
statements. The only comment he would
make was that he guessed there was no
such state of affairs in the city as was
stated. Possibly some saloon men and
others had gone a bit beyond the letter
of the law. he admitted, but they would
be attended to in good time. It was
simply impossible to keep everything up
in ship-shape condition with the present
Inadequate police force.
Wm. Harris' Case Didn't Reflect on
His Brother James.
One result of the examination of Wil
liam H. Harris in the probate court last
week was to show that his brother, James
E. Harris, of Minneapolis, acted in good
faith in bringing him to this city. The
commitment of William to a Minnesota
insane hospital was opposed by his sister,
Mrs. Elwood, of Elma, lowa, on the ground
that William was a resident of lowa and
and should be committed there.
William has been taken back to Elma,
lowa, by relatives and a deputy sheriff
appointed by Judge Harvey. A draft for
$1,600 and other personal property have
been turned over to Mrs. Elwood.
Ths differences between the Elwoods
and James E. Harris have been amicably
settled. James Harris says that he had no
intention whatever of depriving his rela
tives of the custody of the brother if they
wished it, and his attitude shows that
he acted in good faith. He took the draft
and other property to oblige his unfortu
nate brother, who insisted upon it. His
rea&on for going to Minneapolis so sud
denly was the condition of his brother,
who became violently insane and needed
prompt attention. Although William had
lived at Elma during the past four years,
James considered that William had not
lost his residence in this state, and, as
he had also been an inmate at St. Peter,
it was thought that Minnesota was the
proper place to take him.
The Elwoods say that the- family re
lations have been of the best, and they
acquit brother James of any intention
to defraud them or William. It was Wil
liam and not James who occupied a padded
cell in the county jail. The names were
confused in the headlines of an item in
Thursday's Journal. James is a well
known resident of Minneapolis.
Harvey Hildreth Has an Order for
Horsethief Bounty.
Harvey Hildreth has been awarded a
bounty of $50 for apprehending a horse
thief, but if he gets the money is quite
another question. He appeared at the
office of County Treasurer Bell with an
order from the district court. The law
says that the bounty shall be paid on the
order of the court, but Deputy Public Ex
aminer Koerner, who happened to hear of
the case, called attention to a further pro
vision that money shall not be paid ex
cept on the auditor's warrant. Auditor
Scott refused to issue a warrant, as he
had no information that the state had a
fund for horsethief bounties. Unless the
county would be reimbursed he would not
authorize the payment of the county.
B. D. White, deputy state dairy inspector,

"He told me when he left that he had

Then the copper remembered that he

he was wrong, and again referred him to

so the officer demanded the payment of

County Surveyor Cooley submitted a re
port to the county commissioners this
morning on the amount of travel over the
different -'farmer" roads leading into the
city. The report was ordered for the
purpose of ascertaining to what extent
the different highways were used and
and the necessity of road improvements
for next year. On Oct. 26, between 4 a.
m. and 6 p. m., the number of vehicles, not
including bicycles, which passed over the
different roads were as follows: River
road, 161; Middle road, 137; Bass Lake
road, 22; Rockford road, 185; Osseo road,
6'J6; Cedar Lake road, 17; Superior boule
vard, 112; Lake street, 141; Excelsior ave
nue, 22; Lyndale avenue, 26i».
The budget of bills allowed by the board
included the final payment to Charles Wil
kins A. Co., for plumbing at the poor farm,
amounting to $770. A former bill has been
appealed to the district court by the tax
payers' league.
Another bill was from Meeker county
| for committing W. A. Bender, an insane
! patient, to the Fergus Falls hospital. The
man was a resident of Hennepin, and this
county was taxed $79.74 for the examina
j tion and conveyance to Fergus Falls.
Superintenden Colburn, of the poor
farm, informed the commissioners that
I one of the inmates had died last week. He
applied to an undertaker at Hopkins for
a casket, but the man of sorrow refused
point blank, giving as his reason that so
many bills were being held up that he did
not want to take any chances.
They Told Birch: "Yon Can Com

L. H. Birch, 1807 Jackson street NE,
was the second victim of the so-called
"museum" joints on Washington avenue
S, to complain of being "robbed" to-day.
Birch called at police headquarters this
afternoon and asked for the arrest of the
men at the "Parisian Museum," who he
says, held him up. He says he was in
duced to play the "plate game," and that
he won systematically on his small
wagers, doubling his bet each time, until
he placed $25 on a single throw. The pro
prietor then asserted that his plate did
not cover the "spot," and that he had
lost. He says the plate did cover the
spot and that the attendant deliberately
moved it so as to make him loser. He
demanded the money, he says, and when
they refused to give it to him he grabbed
up a "gold brick" that was a pare of the
stock in trade of the house. The attaches
locked the doors, he says, and threatened
his life. He then gave up the brick and
told them that he would have them ar
"By the time you get a policeman to

then .they boarded a street jt>. He first

Horace Earle Lost No Time on His
Southern Trip.
He I aed the Houular Tralim and Had
Time to Trunitact Hi*
Talk about your globe trotters! Horace
Earle, of the Earle Fruit company, has
established a north and south record in
the United States which is herewith re
spectfully submitted to the consideration
of young Mr. Fitzmaurice, of Chicago,
who has recently set the world's mark.
The difference between the two ex
ploits is, that while Fitzmaurioe set out
on a regular commission to make Nellie
Bly look like small change — with his
route around the earth carefully mapped
out in advance—Mr. Earle took his little
jaunt on the spur of the moment, with
out holding trains, boarding specials or
urging an engineer to greater exertions
at the revolver's point, as did a man in
Chicago the other day.
In a perfectly natural, matter-of-fact
way, Mr. Earle proceeded to make one of
the most spectacular runs on record. In
sixty-three hours he journeyed to New
Orleans and back again, and made all the
conections with time to burn.
He was in Duluth Monday, two weeks
ago, when his partner telegraphed him
that he was wanted in New Orleans on
urgent business. It was equally im
portant that he should be here Saturday.
Could he make it? He came to Minne
apolis on the night train, and left on the
Omaha's fast mail train at 6:25 Monday
evening, having first supplied himself
with a bundle of railroad time cards and
A study of the different routes persuad
ed him that the Illinois Central would get
him to the southern metropolis in the
shortest possible order. Arriving in Chi
cago at 7 o'clock, he had an hour in which
to transact g. little business on the side
in that city, at 8 o'clock found him
speeding southward on the Illinois Cen
tral, which runs to New Orleans straight
away, almost as the crow flies.
Thursday at 9:30 a. m. he was in New
Orleans, with a whole day ahead of him
to dispose of the important matter which
had called him south.
Leaving New Orleans at 7:30 Thursday
evening, Mr. Eaiie simply duplicated his
performance of the preceding forty-eight
hours, and, arriving in Chicago at 9:30
p. m., had twenty-five minutes to catch

Corn tuut Rye Are Scarce nuil Very
Unless there is a halt to the markets for
corn and rye the consumer will have to pay
more for his whisky. So says Henry Sehmitz,
salesman for a large Cincinnati difctiliing
company, who was in the city to-day. "'The
markably high prices for raw material have
been a source of great trouble to the dis
tillers this year," said Mr. Sehmitz. "With
corn well up over 60 cents it takes consider
ably more money to operate a plant than in
former years when 40 cents was considered ti
high figure. This year the bourbon Whisky
distillery have found t'tie raw material run
ning away from them, owing to the scarcity
of corn, caused by the drought, which cut
down the yield by about half. Of course the
big distillers follow corn and you will always
find the Peorla or Cincinnati whisky markets
up or down accordingly. The distiller pro
tects himself, but beyond him it is a more
difficult matter. The Jobber manages to fol
low pretty well, but the man who dispenses
It by the thimbleful is up against, it. If ho
keeps fire whiskies he hesitates to lower the
quality as ho will lose patronage. He pays
more for his stock but cannot very well limit
the size of his customer's drink, nor can he
raise his price. Now, after corn has gone
away up and apparently is going to stay up,
the old Nick seems to have got into the rye
market. Since 1 left home rye its up 5 cents
to 6 cents a bushel. I understand No. 2 rye
is bringing 55 cents in Minneapolis, while ia
Chicago rye for May delivery sells at 63 cents.
Think of It! Why, if corn and rye keep on
much longer they'll b9 worth as much as

Captain A. S. .Morgan, browned with his
month's sea voyage from Manila, rotund with
twenty-five additional pounds avoirdupois ac
quired with his c:o!or, arrived yesterday morn
ing. He will remain in Minneapolis for some
time with his brother-in-law, S. E. Lovejoy.
Captain Morgan's commission as captain of
the Thirty-fourth volunteers expired June 30.
Since that time he has been in Manila. He
sailed for San Francisco Oct. 1, spent four
days there and five in Chicago, after which he
came to Minneapolis.
Captain Morgan believes that a big garrison
will be needed In the Islands for several
years to come. He says the resources of the
islands are great and practically untouched.
Owing to the unsettled state or affairs little
capital has gone in. The Spooner bill stopped
even that, as no titles coula be given until
the government should determine some plan.
The government is well organized in Manila
and in many o? the provinces.
Manila is greatly improved since Captain
Morgan first saw it. Everything is cleaned
up, tho streets are in good condition, the
bunetta has been enlarged and improved. All
Luzon north of Manila is as peaceable prob
ably as at any time in its history. In south
ern Luzon, when Captain Morgan left, Gen
eral Malvar was still in the ttelj. Serious
trouble was evident in Leyte and Samar,
where the -Ninth regiment was det'hnated.

Henry Forcier must return a prisoner
to the state reformatory to serve out his
unexpired term. Judge E. A. Jaggard, of
St. Paul, has dismissed the writ of ha
beas corpus in his case. The court de
clined to listen to arguments on the na
ture of the auestion o f how and when the
young man broke his parole, for the court
held that the petitioner is as much in the
custody of the authorities as though he
were within the four walls of the reform
As to conditional pardon which, the pe
titioner alleges gave him his absolute lib
erty, the court says that it was a con
ditional pardon which was not to take
effect until the condition was performed
and it had not been performed.
The conditional pardon was still in the
possession of State Agent "VVhittier, and
by its own terms, its action was not com
plete until Whittier had acted. The pe
titioner was then simply out on parole.
Mr». JDoherty Lay Trembling: and
Made No Sound.
While Mrs. Wm. Doherty lay watching him,
a masked burglar ransacked a bureau at her
home, 283 Lisbon street, St. Paul, Saturday
night, and carried away a purse containing
$17. Mrs. Doherty was afraid that If she
cried out he wouFd kill her. When her hus
band came home she told him of the ad
venture'and he hastened to the street car
barns 75 the vicinity to notify the police.
Otto Schedenskl, the cashier, thought he wag
going to be held up and kept Doherty at
bay with a revolver for several minutes.
Doherty departed and 'phoned the police from
a neighbor's house.

Beet Plants in Nebraska and Colo
rado Due to Lose $540,000.
American Refining Company Seek to
Have Them Filled on a Fall
ing- .Market.
Special to The Journal.
Sioux City, lowa, Nov. 12.—1f the Amer
ican Sugar Refining company succeeds in
forcing the beet sugar plants to carry out
their contracts with Missouri valley job
bers, inw hich the wholesalers were guar
anteed a price 10 cents below the mar
ket, and if the cane sugar trust succeeds
in establishing $4.25 as legally the mar
ket price for this section, it will result
in the loss of $540,000 to the beet sugar
plants in Nebraska and Colprado.
The contracts of this nature include
practically all of the 27,000 tons of beet
sugar which will be turned out of the
factories of these two states this year.
The factories making such contracts are:
The American Beet Sugar company of
Rocky Ford, Col.; Grand Island, Neb.,
and Norfolk, Neb.; the Colorado Sugar
Manufacturing company, Grand Junction.
Col.; National Sugar Manufacturing com
pany, Sugar City, Col.; the Western Con
struction company, Loveland, Col., and
the Standard Beet Sugar company of
Leavitt, Neb.
These factories were unable to sell their
product west, because the California
lilants were supplying all the trade in .that
section. So they went east, and made
contracts along the Missouri river to un
dersell the cane sugar market 10 cents,
tfcis being possible because of their prox
The beet sugar men of this section de
clare that the trust has centered its at
tack upon Colorado and Nebraska, be
cause the industry is a new one in these
two states, and the soil has given promise
of being very favorable.
The annual beet sugar output of the
United States has grown in three years
from 30.000 tons to 200,000 tons this year.
The production is distributed as follows,
California, 80,000; Michigan, 60,000; Colo
rado, 20,000; Utah, 15,000; Nebraska, 7,000:
New York. 7.000; Wisconsin, 3,000; Min
nesota, 2,000; Washington, 2,000; Oregon,
The value of the sugar beet Industry
may be understood from the fact that to
manufacture the 2,000,000 tons of sugar
used in the United States the American
farmers would have to produce annually
55,000,000 tons of sugar beets, giving them,
at a low calculation, $222,000,000.
The industry would employ at least
5,500,000 acres of the best farming land,
and the services of half a million labor
ers. Three hundred factories of the aver
age size now in operation in the United
States will convert the beets into sugar,
and to operate them would require 165,
--000 men, to whom $37,000,000 would be paid
The policy of the trust is evidenced in
the fact, just made known, that it will
allow .the jobbers to sell at the new cut
price only five bags of sugar to a custom
er, making the cut practically valueless
to the jobbers.
Board of Officers on Sites for In-
Mtruotion ( amp*.
Washington, Nov. 12.—The secretary of
war has ordered to be convened in Wash
ington on Nov. 25, an important board of
army officers of high rank, to consider
several matters, particularly regarding
military posts and reservations. The
board consists of Lieutenant General
Miles, Major Generals Brooke. Otis, Young
and Mac Arthur, and Brigadier Generals
Bates, Randall and Kobbe. The order di
rects the board to report upon the loca
tion and distribution of military posts re
quired for the proper accommodation, in
struction'and maintenance of the army.
The board is to recommend which posts
shall be abandoned or retained, which
enlarged and to what extent, and the lo
cation, size and character of new posts
necessary, with due regard to the proper
distribution of the different arms of the
service, based upon strategic, sanitary and
economical considerations.
The board also will submit a project for
the location and survey of sites for four
permanent camp grounds of Instruction of
the regular army and state national guard,
together with the probable cost. The
findings will be reported to congress by
the secretary of war.

Test Your Plumbing
For the Winter.
You will not neglect to put on the storm windows and
seal your homes as tightly as possible this fall, but you
may neglect to have the plumbing tested, that you will
live with and use during the coming winter. A few dol
lars for prevention is better than doctor's bills and illness.
Have a test made and feel that you have done right.

roMtufllce EmplojeN Affected Inter
ested in KooMcvelt'M Plan.
Rural free delivery employes will be
highly interested in the plan of Presi
dent Roosevelt to classify the service
during the winter. The president has
talked with the postmaster general about
the matter and also with the civil serv
ice commission. This service is one of
the few departments of the government
not classified. It promises to be one of
the most important divisions of the gov
ernment service, and consequently the
president believes should be under civil
service rules. Those which apply to th<*
other bureaus of the postoffice depart
ment may by a simple stroke of the pen
be made to include the new bureau, but
the arrangement of the details will be- a
difficult matter. This must be accom
plished by the postmaster general and
Civil Service Commissioner W. 1)
The difficulty In classifying will be
mainly with the carriers. Each one must
have his own horse and be acquainted
with those living on his route. The car
rier must have the confidence of his
clients, as he is authorized to sell money
orders and postal notes. The average
citizen will not pay money to the car
rier unless he knows him, as he is ex
pected also to mail the order or note.
The carrier, to be efficient, must live
on his route, and the usual competitive
examination will not suffice. It must be
determined how to get the best men re
gardless of political considerations.
The system will make the carrier a
permanent employe, removable for in
efficiency only. It Is expected that the
classification of this service will make it
even better than It is already.

furnishes the quick and perfect way for
communication on all commercial and
social matters at very reasonable ra eg.
