WEDNESDAY. EVENING, NOVEMBER 20, 1901.
YERXA
WASNIN6.
It is only dishonest for a grocer
to weigh out Coffee as "Hoffman
House" which lie knows is not
genuine.
There are hundreds of honest
dealers in Minneapolis and oth
er cities who sell the genuine
article in 1-lb. red cartons; we
hear of others who weigh out
"any old kind*' of coffee as
"Hoffman House" and lie about
it—no law against lying.
"Hoffman House" coffee is
weighed out (sold in bulk) from
the several stores of Yerxa
Bros. & Co., in Minneapolis and
in St. Paul, Minn., or Fargo, N.
D., only, and in no other stores in
the world can coffee be genuine
"Hoffman House," which is not
packed in red cartons bearing
our trade-mark and name.

THE CITY
TOWN TALK
Dr. S. A. Wright, dentist, is now located at
Medical building, 608 Nicollet avenue.
The Title Insurance and Trust company
pays 2 per cent on deposits subject to check.
Children all over town are asking grocers
for Regan's ■'fruit" bread. It contains rai
sins and currants and is nicely spiced.
The ladies of Franklin Avenue Methodist
Episcopal church will give a silver social at
Hotel Summers, Tenth street and Fourth ave
nue S. the home of the pastor, Dr. Stafford,
Friday evening, Nov. 22, at S o'clock. An
excellent program has been provided. J. G.
Purple will give selections on his phono
graph and light refreshments will be served.
Knute Bjorge Xordeman, who with his
aged mother took poison last Saturday night,
is slowly recovering at the city hospital.
When his mind is clear he expresses sorrow
over attempting to commit wuicide and -says
he will not do it again. His mother is dead
from the effects of the drug, but the son has
not been apprised of the fact.
Alice Biugharn Russell, who has gained
prominence through various branches of re
form work, has guaranteed the rent of the
chuivh building, 112 Second street SE, for
merly occupied by the Christian Brethren,
and nondenominational meetings are now be
ing held there with success. The meetings
are open to all Christian workers and are
held every night.
The man killed In the Minnesota Transfer
jrarda near the Burr street bridge, last Fri
day evening- was C. W. Gierok, and not
Charles Holmes, as reported at the time. Gle
rok was in charge of the "wheat run" for
the Omaha road at the transfer. His remains
were buried Monday at Calvary cemetery, St.
Paul, a brother, W. J. Gierok of Little Falls,
Minn., being in attendance.
University men will pay $4 for two persons
and Jo for four when they hire carriages to
take them to parties iv the armory. The
former rate was $3 and $4. The liverymen
decided upon the raise last*night, owing to
iact that the majority of the students live
near the campus, and when they take West
Side girls to functions it makes rather a
long haul, especially when one man takes
some one from one part of town and th«
other from some still farther distant point.
Superintendent Ames of the police depart
ment says that the efficiency of the force has
been crippled by the assignment of bo many
patrolmen to watch houses that are quaran
tined. He believes in the enforcement of a
strict quarantine in smallpox cases, but
thinks it is wrong to take policemen from
their regular beats to guard houses in which
infectious diseases exist. Four men are need
ed for each house, two during the day and
two during the night. Thus each house robs
a large district of its police protection.
The Jewish peddlers of the city have com
bined to secure legal punishment for offend
ers against them. They are troubled mostly
by the small boy, and will endeavor to have
him controlled. The latter seems to think
that the peddler is in business for his spe
cial benefit, and works off his superfluous
tnrgies in that direction. The following
committee has been selected to protect the
peddicrs' interests: Ralph Rees, chairman;
Joseph Kolontersky, Dr. G. A. Gordon, Louis
Fredmau, Martin Ginsberg, Adolph Farbstein
and Charles Juster. The mayor has assured
his support and the board of education will be
asked to assist.

Chicago. Nov. 20.—1t is said that it is
not improbable that .the recent flurry re
garding the time of fast trains between
Chicago and Minneapolis and Chicago and
Omaha will lead to the withdrawal of
several of the so-called weuk lines from
the Western Passenger association. Should
this occur it is believed it will clause a

COILDX'T COMPROMISE
Jobbers of Sioux Falls to Push Suit*
Against the Xortb.-Western.
special to The Journal.
Sioux Falls, S. D.. Nov. 20.—Efforts to
compromise the difficulty existing between
the Sioux Falls Jobbers' association and
the North-Western Railroad company,
growing out of proposed new freight rates
which are held to be to the disadvantage
of Sioux Falls, have practically failed and
there evidently is a hot fight ahead. Since
the postponement of the suits recently in
stituted by the jobbers' association to
restrain perpetually the railroad company
from putting into effect a proposed new
schedule of freight rates, the association
has made all sorts of efforts to reach an
amicable understanding with the road.
But members of the association accuse the
road of not acting in good: faith, and the
Injunction suits, which will come up for
hearing the present week, will be pushed
as energetically as possible.
TO EXTEND 8., W. & G. F. ROAD
Coal Harbor to Be Made the Termi
nus Next Year.
The Bismarck, Washburn & Great Falls
railroad will be extended twenty-five
miles beyond Washburn next year. The
,1902 terminus will probably be at Coal
Harbor, N. D., on the Missouri. Mr.
Washburn owns a large .tract of land
along the Missouri river north of Wash
burn, and, having disposed of several
thousand acres to settlers during the past
year, the need of transportation facilities
is becoming urgent.
Work on the extension will be begun
early next spring, and wiTl be completed
in ,time to move the crops next fall.
Rate to Xew Yorlc Lowered.
General passenger agents of the Chlcago-
Miuueapolis lines have decided to make a re
duction of $4.50 in the through rate to New
York via the standard lines east of Chicago.
Their action was based on an application by
the Michigan Central railroad for a reduc
tion in through rates. While it was agreed
to make the reduction in rates applicable
only over the Michigan Central, it is certain
that the same rate will be made over the Fort
Wayne and .Lake Shore roads.
N. V., X. H. & H. Switchmen's Strike.
New York, Nov. 20.—The striking switch
men of the Xew York, New Haven & Hart
ford railroad met in secret session to-day to
discuss plans for aiding their cause. First
Vice Grand Master Ames, of the Switchmen's
Union of North America, was present at the
meeting and will remain here throughout the
strike. The strikers say that of SOO men em
ployed in the yards only one refused to go
out.
Assistant Superintendent Wardrop says the
company will quietly fill the places of the
strikers. Division Superintendent Shepard
says that under no circumstances will any of
the men now on strike ever be employed
by the company again. He said he antici
pated no trouble in filling their places. The
police kept a force of thirty-two men on duty
in the vicinity of the property of the com
pany ali night.
CAPT. SHAW IN THE WAR
Compliment to His Modesty by Col.
George Eddy.
Captain Melville Shaw of the United
States marine corps, was unable to ad
dress John A. Rawlins Post, G. A. R., last
night, owing to illness. However, he had
prepared notes which formed a modest
story of his connection with the landing
of the marines at Guantanamo on the
Cuban coast during the Spanish-American
war. Major George K. Shaw, his father,
read the story and followed with a few
remarks on his son's connection with in
' cidents in the Philippines and China.
Colonel George Eddy, one of the speak
ers of the evening, was impressed with
the extreme modesty of the man who
was brevet ted for his bravery at Guan
tanamo. He believed that the engagement
was more severe than that of San Juan
Hill. Said Mr. Eddy:
The fight to which Captain Shaw has so
modestly referred, was one of the severest
engagements that American troops have ever
been subjected to, and one in which Captain
Shaw gained greta distinction by his per
sonal conduct. Hardly any commander ever
got into a tighter place than he did at that
time and no one ever acquitted himself more
creditably. He was breveted for his bravery.
Personally he acquired as much distinction
in the duty that was assigned to him as any
one in the war on Cuba's soil.
Colonel Eddy referred further to the
fact that the captain was the worthy son
of a worthy sire; that he had proved him
self a hero by the modest manner in
which he referred tohis services during
trying times. That the post would take
as much interest in his career as if he
were one of its members.
UP TO HUNT FOR PROOF
St. Paul Alderman Must Prove the
Charges or Suffer Impeachment.
Alderman C. J. Hunt of the St. Paul city
council, in the course of recent public ad
dresses, declared that the Twin City
street railway company controlled a
working majority of the St. Paul city
council and that some of the city officials
were on the pay roll of the company.
Some of the members of the St. Paul board
of aldermen profess to be much incensed
over the charges of their colleagues and
at last night's meeting of the board called
attention to his statements and insisted
upon an official investigation. They de
manded that if the charges were proved to
be unfounded, impeachment proceedings
be instituted against him. A resolution
to the above effect was adopted with but
two dissenting votes. The resolution now
goes to the assembly for concurrent ac
tion.
SENATOR GIBSON HERE
The Montana Statesman Is En Route
to Washington.
Parla Gibson, senator from Mon
tana, was in the city a short time yester
day afternoon on his way to Washington.
Mr. Gibson was formerly a resident of
Minneapolis, and was at one time presi
dent of the North Star Woolen Mills. He
spent the afternoon yesterday in visit
ing old friends.
Senator Gibson is one of the few mem
bers of the upper house whose election
came to him unsolicited. At the time of
his selection he was asleep in his room
in a Helena hotel, and was found there by
a friend who went in search of him to
break the news. His election grew out
of a deadlock ibetween H. L. Frank and
John MacGinnis, Frank finally withdraw
ing his name and asking his supporters to
vote for Gibson. The succeeding ballot
resulted in the election of the former
Minneapolitan by a margin of one vote.
Mr. Gibson has devoted considerable
time to the study of irrigation problems,
and hopes to secure some much needed
legislation on that subject during the
coming session.
Wants Damage fur Cold Feet.
Mrs. Elizabeth Barford, -who occupies the
apartments over the Milton Dairy company
at Ninth street and Wabasha, St. Paul, has
brought suit against Thomas Milton for $1,100
damages for causing ■cold feet and other phys
ical discomforts. The cold-storage plant un
derneath her apartments makes it impossible
to keep them warm, and she suffers con
stantly from cold feet and cold in the head.
The noise of the big churn also interferes
with the slumber of her roomers.
THE MINNEAPOLIS JOURNAL.
WHERE MINNEAPOLIS FALLS DOWN
Every Quarter-Hour the Chimes Proclaim to Residents and
Transients Alike That Some Public Servant Has Been
Negligent in His Notes Are Dropped Out

TKe.n^.ed.rii\6iiv^.i\owji\_vo^ue. . 7.
Here is one place where Minneapolis falls down. The courthouse chimes 1
are out of order. To most people this statement will not be news, for the bells
went wrong as long ago as last August, although the custodian of the court
house, whose duty it is to keep them in order, does not appear to have been
aware of the fact, possibly because his political experience has given him a poor
opinion of "ringers," and he consequently paid little attention to those
overhead.:;
However, the chimes cost the city a pretty penny, several of them, in fact;
and they should not be neglected. When the mechanism first got out of gear,
last summer, the mercury in the thermometric tube was almost as high up as
the bells themselves, and the chief engineer evidently figured that his duties
did not include a long and tedious climb to the belfry, at least until the weather
moderated. Then he became accustomed to the moth-eaten peal from overhead,
and paid no further attention to it.
To the musical ear the misbehavior of the bells causes much righteous in
dignation. It is bad enough to have the hour or half announced in syncopated
time, but when the entire series goes on a strike, as is sometimes the case, the
ensuing racket becomes a positive evil. Occasionally the lower note does not
strike at all. When it does strike it is out of tempo, and the effect is weird
rather than musical.
The bells are rung by compressed air. Tke mechanism which controls
them is delicate of construction, and likely to get out of order frequently if not
properly cared for. That is just what has happened now. Neglect has resulted
in disorder, and unfortunately the official physcian seems indisposed to admin
ister a specific.
The custodian of the bells is the chief engineer of the courthouse. When
his attention was called to the fact that the bells are out of order he replied
that everything was all right so far as he could discover, and that he had dis
covered no irregularity whatever. Other people, however, have noticed it, and
are very indignant that the difficulty has not been remedied.
As manipulated at present, the chimes every quarter hour advertise to
residents and transients slovenliness and slipshod methods of municipal house
keeping. They should be properly adjusted and at once.
ERNEST SEION-THOMPSON
HIS A 3IOST INTERESTING LIFK
Something About ''The Friend of
Wild Animals" Soon to
Be Here.
Of Ernest Seton-Tnompson, who is to
give two of his charming lectures on wild
animals at the Lyceum theater Saturday
afternoon and evening a writer in the
Critic says that his autobiography, the
most interesting of his books, is still un
written. "Few men have led a more va
ried life than the author of 'Wild Ani
mals I Have Known,' but as yet only a
modicum of his personal experiences has
been given to the world, for, like most
Englishmen he does not willingly talk for
publication." A few interesting facts,
however, are known about him.
■Mr. Seton-Thompson was born in the
north of England 41 years ago and was
educated partly in his native country and
partly in Canada. After his definite re
turn to Canada at the end of his school
days he spent several years knocking
around the province of Manitoba, working,
at times, as a laborer on farms in order
to get enough money to keep him going
and then wandering through the wilder
portions with all his belongings on his
back. The acquaintance he thus gained
with the wild life of Manitoba led to two
books, "The Birds of Manitoba," and
"The Mammals of Manitoba," which were
published in 1892 and 1893. In recog
nition of these two books he was made
official naturalist at 'Manitoba and during
the world's fair he represented the prov
ince in Chicago.
During 1883 and 1884 Mr. Seton-Thomp
son was in 'New York city, and a pretty
hard time he had of it. At first he could
get nothing at all to do, but at last got a
place at $15 a week as a lithographer,
after having asked for $40. One day a
Jew came into the office and Seton-
Thompson heard him tell his employer
that if he could get a "goot raven" he
could make $10,000 out of it. Seton-
Thompson persuaded the employer to let
him make the raven. tHe went out to
Central Park for his model and made a
sketch that delighted the Jew. On the
strength of this success Seton-Thompeon
struck for a "raise" to $50 but got only
$20. Several months later the artist-nat
uralist told his employer he must have
another raise. It was refused and he
quit though the employer offered him $25
to come back. 'And thus the employer
lost a great opportunity. Seton-Thomp
son pulled out for the west, feeling "as
though I never wanted to see the place
again." But two years later he was back
as the bird artist for the Century diction-
ary.
Seton-Thompson's first story, "The
King Bird" was written in 1880 and never
published "The Carberry O«er Hunt,"
which afterwards became "The Sand Hill
Stag" was published in "Forest and
Stream" in 1886. After this the author
artist wrote for many publications, but it
was not until 1898 when a number of his
stories were published in book form under
the title "Wild Animals I Have Known"
that his fame was established.
The two lectures Mr. Seton-Thompson
is to give here will be illustrated by stere
opticon reproductions of his drawings and
photographs. Both, will be found fas
cinating by young and old. The topic of
the afternoon lecture i 3 "Wild Animals at
Home and in Sport," and in the evening,
"Animal Minds and Animal Heroes."
The sale of seats is now in progress at
the Metropolitan music store for these
lectures. The afternoon entertainment is
a popular price matinee. The sale of
course tickets which include Seton-
Thompson is also in progress.
FORT SNEUJNG PLANS
Twin City Commercial Clubs to Pre
pare n. Memorial,
oCngressmen Loren Fletcher of Min
neapolis and F. C. Stevens of St. Paul met
with representatives of the commercial
bodies of St. Paul and the Minneapolis
Commercial Club in the rooms of the lat
ter organization yesterday afternoon to
discuss plans for the enlargement of Fort
Snelling as a military post. The St.
Paul delegation included General John
B. Sanborn. George H. Shellenberger,
B. F. Beardsley, R. A. Kirk, Major John
Espy, Thomas Cochran, and F. B. Doran.
The Minneapolis Commercial Club wai
represented by A. C. Paul, James Gray and
C. S. Cairns. Congressmen Stevens and
Fletcher addressed the meeting and it was
decided to memorialize congress to en
large the post for the accommodation of
two batteries of artillery and one regi
ment each of cavalry and infantry. The
two congressmen with Mr. Beardsley were
appointed a committee to draft the me
morial.
A Foreign Corporation.
Foreign corporations cannot sue in this
state unless thej' comply with the state law
requiring such companies to report certain
matters to the state. The Western Cottage
Piano and Organ company sold a piano to
Libbie Ruse, and when she did not pay, the
claim was assigned to \V. E. Van Auken, an
agent of the company. Libbie Russ retains
possession of the piano, however, as Judge
Pond decided that Van Auken could not se
cure any more rights than those held by the
company.
COSTLY FIRE AT ST. PADL
THE LOSS WILL EXCEED #100,000
The Sherman Block:, Ninth and Wa
basha, Completely Gutted in
Two Hours.
The five-story Sherman block, Ninth and
Wabasha streets, St. Paul, owned by Mrs.
Caroline E. Boardinan and occupied by
the People's Storage company, was com
pletely gutted by fire late yesterday aft
ernoon. The damage to the building was
about $30,000, while other losses make the
aggregate o6t less than $110,000, fully
covered by insurance.
The fire was discovered by a patrolman,
who sent in the alarm. Before the fire
apparatus arrived the flames burst forth
from the windows of the third floor, and
by the time streams were playing on the
building the entire three upper floors were
a mass of flames. As the fire grew fiercer
■there was a succession of violent ex
plosions within the building. The air was
filled with debris which rained down on
the throng in the streets below. The
electric light wires in Ninth street gave
way beneath the weight and the heat and
fell. A fire department team ran away,
and went tearing down Ninth street, add
ing to the general confusion. There was
a wild stampede of onlookers in the vi
cinity end many persons were knocked
down and trampled upon.
Two hours after the alarm was turned
in the fire was under control. The Sher
man block was practically a wreck. Th«
upper floors and the roof had fallen
through and had lodged in the second
story. But the heroic work of the fire
men, done in the face of great danger,
had kept the fire from spreading and,
except by smoke and water, little loss was
done outside the one structure. Goods
stored by the People's company were
owned by 400 people, and the loss can be
estimated only collectively. A statement
of damage and insurance follows:

Grocor'd Clerk Convicted.
Charles Nelson, the grocer's clerk accused
by lin, Emma Burton with an attempt to

assault in the second degree by the jury

by Nelson was very plausibly told, but was
too thin to deceive the jury, which was out
only a few minutes.
Rupture
Cured Free
The Rice Method is Unparalleled in
the Annals of Medical Successes.
A Cheap Home Cure That Anyone Can Use
Without Pain, Danger or Loss of
Time From Work.
IS SENT FREE TO ALL.
Out of the chaos of old time failure
comes a new and startling cure for rup
ture. Dr. W. S. Rice, 1396 N. Main St.,
MR, t'HAS. LAX(iR,
Quickly Cured After Suffering IS Years
Adam.3, N. V., has invented a method
that cures without pain, danger, opera
tion or an four's loss of time from the
day's work. To avoid all questions of
doubt he sends free to every sufferer a
free trial of his method and there can be
no earthly reason -why anyone, rich or
poor, should not avail themselves of this
generous offer. As an instance of this
remarkable method, the cure of Charles !
Lange, Morrison, Ills., is a welcome 1
piece of intelligence.
iMr. Lange is a well preserved old gen
tleman, 72 years of age and for eighteen
years had a bed double rupture which no
treatment could cope with. After a
short use of the Rice method the left rup
ture healed entirely and the right waß al
most closed in a few weeks. To-dey he is
as sound as a dollar, and his cure is only
one of hundreds of similar cases reported
by those who use the Rice method. Send
for this free trial. Don't be backward.
It will surprise you with its wonderful
power to heal. And if you know of other
raptured people fisk them to ■write or
write for them. Do not fall to write at
once; do so to-day.

FENCING IN A FLAT
Occupants of the Xoriuandie Watch
an "Improvement" Go L'p.
It Is pretty hard for some of the wives
j in the Normandie flat building. Fourteenth
I and Nicollet, to get their husbands off to
work early theae mornings. They prefer
to hang out of the second and third story
windows and josh the owner of the next
lot in the rear, who, in company with a
carpenter, is putting up a fence twenty
feet high.
"Say, old fel," said Commission Man
Bradley, making a perilous reach out of
the second floor for the cap of the car
penter, "can't you paper that fence on the
inside? It's awfully cold up here. It
would make it nice and warm."
"Put that fence up another story and
I'll stand half the expense," yelled "Bob
by" Menz from the next window. Menz
is a lumberman. Archibald Crane, from
his vantage point on the second floor,
where he could just look over the top of
the fence, offered to fix the discount com
mittee if any money was needed to com
plete the job. Dr. Frank Burton is wait
ing in the expectation of doing a little
Red Cross work in case the flatters make
a raid. Judge Dickinson is reserving his
decision until he i 3 sure that the owner
of the lot is not going to put up stabling
sheds for horses. The cracks form a sort
of eeollan harp upon which the north
wind plays the sad air, "You can't play in
our yard."
Mrs. Tourtellotte, owner of the Nor
mandie, for two years leased the lot in
order to provide her tenants with a place
in which to beat rugs and dry clothes.
Last a'eason the lines were cut down and
the lease given up. It is believed by 'he
agents of the flats that the fence building
is spite work on the part of the owner.
'He—lt was hard work to keep from
kissing you last night.
She—Well, you must be careful not to
overexert yourself, Jack.
