To Mr. Nye they explained that the de

requests to send what is known as- the
"good roads" train into the northwest

movements, is much interested in bring

ery indication that the project will be
carried through successfully.
Martin. Dodge, director of the bureau
of road inquiry, department of agricul

to the plan. :
The train .consists of twelve "Cars, "two

LOCK AND STAR
On Thursday the real estate men took
a drive through the eighth and thirteenth
wards. Thirty well known brokers of the
city met a t the West hotel at 11:30, from
which point the start was made. The
drive led up Lowry hill, where the atten
tion of the brokers was called t o tbe fine
paving and the -condition of the. boule-
. yards. Passing through Green's addition
and Kenwood, .a stop was 'made at Island
park, where it was explained to the mem-1
bers that the property was being ex
ploited under the management of its own
er. This gentleman has spent some $15,-
000 in grading the high lots into the low
lots and in making a 'fine piece of resi
dence property out of what was ordinary
rolling forest land covered, with wild
flowers and old oaks.- ' ,'
The Minikahda club "was reached at 1
o'clock and lunch was served on the
porch. A new start w a s m a de at 1:30 for
Calhoun Park. ,Mr. Formanls. beautiful
new home was shown and the' exploits of
Mr. Curtiss thoroughly explained. At Lin
den Hills Mr. Nickels and Mr. Walton
a little history of the property. The.
next stop was (made at the j corner of
King's Highway Forty-ifourth street. Mr.
Bggleston gave away maps of the re-plat
of t'hi property, showing the new and the
vacated avenues. After a pleasant driye
over what used to be the old Blaisdell
farm, which is handled by Walter Badger,
the members disbanded e t Fifth street
and Nicollet. . . . . . . -
It'has been voted to have a drive in a
different part of the city every, week
through the summer, the drives to be on
tally-ho coaches.. A vote was taken upon
the suggestion of J. Frank Conklin,
chairman of the executive ^committee.
Far from subsiding'with" the lapse of
time, indignation over t h e CUban plank

"we' never would have let that Cufban
plank go through. We did hot know until
we. read it kfterwarrf - ia3 "T h e j u r

John Williams was arraigned in police
court this morning charged with attempt
ing to swindle Edward Meyer, a farmer
lad from near Madison, Wis., out of |40.
He pleaded^not guilty and the case was
set for, Tuesday. '
Meyer says a stranger met him near the
courthouse yesterday and engaged him in
conversation. The stranger produced a
lock of such peculiar construction that it
could be opened by pushing a small slide.
After a few minutes Williams, came up and
the stranger showed him the lock and .of-
fered to bet he could open it in ten sec
onds. When an offer was made to bet? on
the opening of the lock, Williams showed
star and threatened to arrest the men
for being sharpers. Both protested their
innocence but the man was obdurate "and
declared he would take them to the police,
station. Meyer exhibited $40 in bills. Aa
soon as Williams saw the money, says
Meyer, he grabbed at it.
Stranger No. 1 got away, but Meyer fol
lowed Williams when he attempted to
run. The crowd followed and Former Po
lice Sergeant Gustafson succeeded in capr
turing the man after a chase of several
blocks. Williams and his partner are
thought t o be the men who swindled
Thomas Burns of Toronto, Can., out of
$63 by means of a card game a few days
Charles Carter, said t o be the third man
in the case, was arrested late to-day.

continued until Saturday night, and if
the body was not recovered in that time
the matter would be abandoned.

bodies were never recovered. The same

Minneapolis is growing so fast that the
directory folks are having trouble in get
ting out their annual edition. They can't
understand it. For the first time in a de
cade the city has recorded an increase in
every one of the 157 districts into which
it is divided, and the increase-for the en
tire city will be little shont, of marvelous.
J. C. F. Ely, manager, said this morn
ing that the book would not be out before
Aug. 1. He added that the increase in
.population, had been so great that be
could, not even estimate it, and predicted
that the figures, when published, would
recall boom days. '
-This is all the more remarkable from
the fact that 'the growth in St. Paul has
been only normal. There the directory
canvass has already been completed and
shows a gain of 2,592 names over that of
1901.. In Minneapolis the gain will be sev
eral time's that. The gain in Minneapolis
last year was 2,325. Using the customary
multiple of 2%, the directory
then indicated a population of
233,043. The same multiple ap
plied to the forthcoming directory will
give Minneapolis a population of more
than a quarter of a million.

At the session of the city council last
evening permission was given the North
ern Pacific railway to lay four tracks be
tween Eighteenth and-Twenty-third ave
nues SB, connecting the Great-Northern
with the Northern Pacific. The two HiU
roads are getting closer together in the
use of terminals in the twin cities. It is
believed that before fall the announce
ment will be" made that the Northern Pa -
cific will again run its trains into the
r station Instead of into
the Milwaukee station as at present.

Iowa Falls, Iowa July 12.President E.
S. Ellsworth of the Des Moines, Iowa Falls
& Northern railroad has returned from
Des Moines, where steps were'taken to
commence work on the construction of the
line from that point in the direction of
Nevada. The grading on the line from
this city south is completed to Nevada
and the track is laid to within four miles
of that city. The officers of the road say
that trains between this city and Des
Moines will be running this fall, but will
set no date owing t o the uncertainty with
which steel is shipped. The new road
will enter' the city of Des Moines over
Hubbell*s ne w terminal lines, known as
the Des Moines Termnial. The new roll
ing stock of thejjompany for which orders
were placed, some months ago is'-expected
within the next thirty days.
Why are the Minneapolis police follow
ing "Link" Crossman?
That is Just what they are doing
though Crossman is'not charged with any
offense. He is the ma n who lately testi
fied in Fred Ames* trial that he bad
bribed the chief. - -
But he appears t o have mystlfle/ the
sleuths of the Minneapolis department.
He was reported to have left the city
some days ago, and Charles Nelson, .the
sleuth-musician, was hot'on the trail in
This morning Crossman was reported to
have been arrested at Aberdeen, S. D.,
and the headquarters men were visibly
elated. Soon, however, the bubble was
pricked, for Crossman himself was seen
on the streets of Minneapolis, and called
on Captain Alexander at the jail in the
course of the morning.
Captain Hill promptly wired Nelson at
Aberdeen: "Wilson and Crossman came
In this morning from Aberdeen. What
does this mean?" He also wired Nelson
$25 fof expense money.
Captain Alexander shas a plausible ex
planation of the police department's
actions. . He is positive, the police are
trailing Crossman to "put hian in the
hole." Crossman lives by his wits, and it
is the plan to follow him till it is pos
sible to have him jailed by the "shadow"
on any sort of a charge. Then, when he is
needed at some subsequent trial, he will
be a prisoner outside the state and not
available as a witness. To Captain Alex
ander this seems the only way to account
for the police activity - over a man
isn't wanted i t is also a tacit admission
that Crossman is in the habit of telling
the truth on the stand, and is a dangerous
man to the corruptionists.
Crossman said this morning that be had
been to Aberdeen but did not know he
was shadowed, nor had he had any trouble
with the police there. Captain Hill's tel
egraphic query: "What does .this mean?"
indicates that the police department ex
pected something to happen to Crossman

Attorney General Douglas holds that the
government oleo law does not In any way
conflict with the Minnesota laws' already
in force. Makers and sellers of butter sub
stitutes must pay a. government license,
but this does not give them any Immunity
from the stringent laws of Minnesota. He
has advised the dairy and food department
"In my opinion uncolored butterine and
oleomargarine- may be sold lb the state if
the laws with reference to the sale of
oleomargarin are'compiled with."
The laws of the state require that where
any butter. substitute i s sold or served
the customer must be notified of the fact
by a placard, or by a note on the printed
menu card. Another act absolutely forbids
the sale of colored oleomargarin.

Every passenger train leaving Minne
apolis to-day had its quota of teachers
and other N. E. A. members. The special
excursions and the half rates over the
transcontinental routes attracted many to
ward Yellowstone park and wonderlands
of the west coa6t. Over 3,000 took ad
vantage of the special inducements for
trips on the Soo-Pacific route, the North
ern Pacific and the Great Northern.
More than half as many more have con
cluded that Minnesota offers about as
fine a climate and as fine scenery a s can
be found and' will tarry in Minneapolis or
in Minnesota's famous park region. The
association's Joint ticket agent reported
that about 2,500 extensions had been se
cured on tickets, indicating that that
many visitors would remain in this vicin
ity. Hundreds who have got a glimpse of
Minnetonka have decided to spend a week
or two at that resort.
The remarkably fine weather has had
much to do with keeping people in Min
nesota. Small parties left to-day on vari
ous short side trips. The first of the long
excursion parties left Wednesday night
when the personally conducted party of
125 organized by the Pennsylvania left for
the Yellowstone. The, Northern Pacific
took a trainload to the park Thursday and
another special was crowded last evening.
The New York Central party of ninety
two also left last night.
The excursions of the Chicago .Teachers'
Federation will leave this evening on the
Great Northern flyer for coast points.
This party numbers forty, under the di
rection of Mary P. Squters, editor of th e
Teachers' Federation Bulletin. Some of
this party Intend visiting Alaska on the
steamer Spokana. All will return by the
The Milwaukee Teachers' association is
also bound for the park.
The scientific excursion conducted by
Professor Conway McMillan of the uni
versity will leave Monday morning. The
party to be direoted by Miss Martha S.
Anderson will leave for the Yellowstone
park this evening. \
One of the most attractive side trips
was that on which a party left the Union
station this morning over 'the Great
Northern for the new national park and
forest reserve just created by congress
at the headwaters of the Mississippi on
Leech lake. A ten days' trip was planned
with the privilege of an extension and re

prevailed at the West hotel this morning,
where the different state delegations were
busy abandoning, their quarters and get

the convention was in many respects the
most successful gathering of the associa

From The Journal Bureau, Soon* SS, PUS]
Washington, July 12.After consulta
tion with Land Commissioner Hermann,
Secretary Hitchcock has outlined a tenta
tive plan for disposing of the Chippewa -
lands a s provided In the Morris act. ,
He will probably Issue the necessary
orders before he leaves Washington next
Wednesday. First he will direct the
commissioner of Indian affairs to com
plete the allotments ito the Indians., It
Is stated that all the lands are surveyed
and that only a small proportion of tbe
Indians have not received their allot
ments. Unless the Indians themselves
put obstacles In the way, this part of the
work should be completed this summer.
The remainder of the agricultural lands
will then be thrown open to settlement. If
this part of the secretary's program does
not miscarry, settlers should be able t o
take up lands next spring and will be able
to put In a crop next summer.
As to the timber lands, the secretary
has called on Commissioner Hermann t o
submit lists of lands examined and clas
sified under the original Nelson act. They
will be ready in a day or two. When re -
ceived the secretary will advise with the '
forestry division with a view to ascertain
ing what particular tracts, amounting to
5 per cent of that which is to be sold, are
to be reserved for forestry purposes. Ad-...
vertisements for the sale of a portioa
of the pine timber will then be sent out*'
The secretary hopes that this prelim
inary action may be completed by Aug. 1,
when he hopes to advertise the first sale,
of pine lands. As this advertisement
must run tor six months, proposals will
not be opened until the first of February
at the earliest and the approval of sales
will take another month, so that it is
not probable that any logging will be done
on the reservation next winter unless it
be for about a month land a half at th e
end of the season.
During the time these advertisements
are running, special agents"--on the reser
vations to examine the various tracts to
determine the quality and.probable value
of the timber with a view to giving in -
formation to the secretary so that he may
be able to judge whether the bids re -
ceived be approximately fair.
This,plan applies only to the lands
heretofore classified -under the Nelson
act. Special agents will be put on the
reservation to classify the remainder of
the lands, which will be opened^to set
tlement and advertised for sale a s "pine"
next summer. . = . . . . . . . ' . ' .
The secretary does not rely-altogether
on the accuracy of the classification here
tofore made, but he is desirous t o begin
operations on the reservations and will
select such as b e is reasonably 'certain
about and put It on the market.
Where there Is a doubt, the secretary
will have a re-examination made. In mak
ing classifications the secretary" will ad
here to the old rule that any forty-acre
tract which has 10,000 feet or more of
timber on it ia to be classed a s pine and
those having under 10,000 feet shall be
classed as agriculture. The timber Is to
be sold on the bank scale and the exact
amount of timber will be determined in
the fall and winter. While the advertise
ment for the sale of pine lands Is run
ning the secretary will select his force of
superintendents and scalers who will be
put into the woods whenever purchasers
are ready to begin operations.

New Routes for Exportation oi

Figrures o n E x p o r t s M a d e b y t h e
T r e a s u r y B u r e a u o f S t a -
From The Journal Bureau, Jioom 45, Poet
Washington, J u l y i2.-^The millers and
wheat growers of the northwest need not
be alarmed at the reports'ofHhe falling
off in exports of breadstuffs which have
just been made public by the treasury bu
reau of statistics. This report shows
that during the year the exports of bread
stuffs decreased $62,464,570, the value of
the exports for 1901 being $267,487,239,
and for 1902 $205,022,669. The greatest
decrease was in corn, the value of which
product sent abroad ha s fallen from $82,-
$15,226 to $16,005,039, due t o the shortage
of the crop. There was a decided gain In
the value of wheat exports, from $96,339,-
230 to $112,149,188.
l Flour sent abroad
showed a slight decrease, from $68,997,441
to $64,725,88$, due to the increased demand
at 'home. .
The New York Produce Exchange, which
is keeping a close watch of the export
grain and .flour trade, thinks that the
falling off in the American exports of
these articles is due t o the wonderful de
velopment In recent years of Ca'nadian
points of export. The decrease of New
York a s an export market for breadstuffs
ha6 been very great in recent years and
this decrease is taken there to mean
that the American export o f breadstuffs
trade as a whole is decreasing. The bulk
of the Amerian crop now goes abroad, say
the New York exporters, by way of Can
ada. Once New York exported, more grata
than all other American ports combined.
Last week 'Montreal exported 85 per cent
more than Ne w York. The changing con
ditions .are pointed out in New York as
due to unusual energy and enterprise o n
the part of Canada.
In connection with the reduction of our incan
descent lighting rates, which takes effect Sepi
1st, next, we desire to announce that on and after
this date connections with consumers on the lines
0/ this company's yCircait wilf be made without
cost. This is conditional upon the house whins
of the premises to be connected, being complete in
every detail and approved by the City Inspector of
