A number of people prefer to buy their
venlng paper at the news stand as they
can always get it when when they want It
and as they select the paper of their
choice without any solicitation the
sales from the news stands are a pretty
flood pointer as to a paper's popularity.
A round was made of the stands and the

McNEELEY AFFIDAVITS
TThey Are Laid Before County Board
Protest Against 'Tonka
Ferrymen.
County Coramisisonor " H i k e " Nash
floras angi all the wa\ through when he"
told his colleagues of the county board
!tfais morning what ho thought of one D.
A. JVIc.eelej, late courthouse ele\ator
Operator, who was discharged last week
for attempting to collect 5-cent fares from
unsophisticated visitors to the couit
house tower. Mr. Xash presented the
af fida\ its of one of the strangers, who in
sisted that McXeelej tried to ' hold them
u p" for 5 t e n t s apiece
A letter from L. S Gillette informed the
board that the ferryman at the Nairows,
L a k e Minnetonka. had become so dere
lict that conditions were becoming intol
erable. Mr Gillette asset ted that the
ferryman was so careless about his lights
t h a t serious accidents were likely to occur
e t any time. Mr. Gillette also asserted
t h a t there was at present no way of tell
Jng when the f e n y cable was down or up
fcnd t h a t steamers were likely to en
counter it at any time at night.
Is there a ny top to Soo stock? Is it any
where near top now that It is just under
80, or has it onlv begun to climb? These
are the questions local speculators who
have been following the stock are now
asking themselves.
Soo was on the rampage again this mor
ning and started the
wee^1
k with anothe r
record smashing spurt" , going this time to
9, . wa s a repetition of the old story.
e
cam
out worsted at the finish
A week ago Saturday Soo stock sold
at 65. This was the high point to that
time and marked the apex of an advance
extending over a year that had doubled,
trebled and e\en quadrupled prices. On
the Monday following the common stock
began rising and on Tuesday struck 70.
Ileie it was figured that a setback would
have to come, on the general principle
that reactions alwa s follow sharp ad
vances, and some of the more daring
stock traders ventured to sell a little
Soo short. But all their selling had no
important effect, and later in the week,
seeing the tenacity with which the stock
held around the 70 level and with a gen
eral bull market on in New York, these
shorts got scared and began to buy back
for protection. Soo struck 74%.
At this point even the most enthusiastic
local bulls who have every confidence that
the stock will ultimately cross par, de
cided that it was a time for caution, and
there was a rush of selling orders out of
Minneapolis, most of them for profit tak
ing on stock carried up all the way from
8 to 30 points. These sellers had no lack
of confidence in the stock, but believed
they could get out on the spurt and buy
back on a setback. W i t h these straight
pioht taking orders there was the sprink
ling of speculative .short sales. Soo closed
Sa titular at isy2.
Over Sunday there developed the feel
ing that even at 74% it was after all
something of a fool proposition to go short
of a stock of which there is so little
going around as Soo. and this with con
ditions in the northwest extremely fa
vorable, money easy in New York and bull
manipulation the feature of the times.
So when the market opened this mor
ning there were a good many buying
orders on hand, and the first trade was
at 78% A sharp break put it to 7 5 ^ , but
just as the bears were again preparing
to get active it moved back and struck 79.
From the speculators' viewpoint little
Soo is "it." and a pretty fierce proposi
tion a t that.

Rev. Charles Crane Attacks U. S. System
of Revenue and Places
Responsibility.
The address last evening a t Wesley
church before the Methodist young people
by Rev. Chailes Crane, pastor of the
People's Temple at Boston, was a stirring
discourse on "The Great American
F r a u d , " referring to the government
liquor system, which he declared was a
menace to all political, moral and social
Institutions. He laid the responsibility at
the door of eveij American, citizen. He
said he himself was a saloonkeeper, also
the pastor of Wesley church and every citi
zen. American materialism he believed
to be the cause of the attitude of the
people. The solution was the enlighten
m e nt of the public conscience to a con
ciousness of its responsibility.

William Winford Wales, one of the
earliest settlers in St. Anthony, died Sa
turday a t Asheville, N. C , where he has
made his home since leaving Minneapolis.
He was mayor of St. Anthony in 1857 and
again in 1865, and filled the office of post
master, and served upon the board of edu
cation of that town before it was consoli
dated with Minneapolis.
. Mr. Wales was bornu in 1818 in Iredell
county, N. C. W i t h a mind always eager
for knowledge h.e early availed himself
of the limited opportunities afforded by
the country school of those days, ataU
then, going north as a teacher himself,
he located first in Indiana, where he m a r -
ried Catherine Elliot Bundy of Greens
boro, Ind. Tha couple .soon after moved
to St. Anthony Falls, where in 1854 Mr.
Wales began business as a bookseller.
W i t h the growth of town into city, his
business developed into the Wales A rt
Store, so long known to Minneapolis, and
from which Mr. Wales retired in 1891.
In the "pioneer days" he held m a n y
public offices of trust, among which were
mavor and postmaster. His genial per
sonality was such as to inspire confidence
and love so generally, t h a t it was of him
t h a t his genius was for making friends.
His w a r m sympathies and liberality of
thought kept him in close touch with peo
ple, and his friends have been literally,
"all sorts and conditions of men."
He has always been a nactive member
of the religious "Society of Friends" in
Minneapolis.
A striking circumstance is, t h a t the
closing work of his life should have taken
him back to his native home, North Car
olina.
This work, which has covered the past
ten years, has been of a distinctly relig
ious character, though entirely un-denom
inational.
It has absorbed all his time, with t h a t
of many co-workers, in establishing and
the training of native Christian workers.
This .gospel work among the "mountain
people" has been his joy, and the sum
mons to a higher activity finds him still
In the field of labor here.
The members of his family who have
been with him during his brief illness, will
carry out the desire he once expressed to
them, that should he be called while in
the field, he might be laid to rest among
his native hills.
A long life of active, loving service to
others Is his recordand a living monu
m e nt to his memory.

Christ, and its several societies. Until
compelled to resign on account of ill
health, early in April, she was the suc

All Minneapolis is talking of David P.
Jones as a mayoralty possibility. The
democrats speak of his candidacy with
fear and misgivings, and the republicans,
with the exception of the personal par
tizans of the four avowed candidates, are
enthusiastic in his favor.
It was repeated again and again this
morning that if Mr. Jones would enter the
field the other candidates would have
small show. This was convincingly de
clared by those who have been irhable to
arouse a ny enthusiasm within themselves
for a ny of the present field.
There has seldom been such a spon
taneous political movement in Minneapolis
a n d the men who are interested therein
find nothing b ut encouragement. Their
only obstacle has been the disposition
of Acting Mayor Jones to stand by his
first decision. Their hope now is t h a t
the movement will gather such strength
attracting the whole body of the people as
one man, and create such general enthusi
asm t h a t Mr. Jones must yield to the
pressure.
Hope In Strong Movement.
They expect overwhelming public sen
timent to set toward Mr. Jones in a few
hours and to see him surrender good na
turedly. The business interests of the
city are with Mr. Jones to a man. No
m a n approached by the committee,
whether a retail merchant, a wholesaler
or a manufacturer, has had aught to say
against the administration of Mr. Jones,
and all heartily approve of any plan that
will bring him out as candidate for mayor.
Wherever it has been possible to make
a canvass, the republicans have been
o\ erwhelmingly in favor of the proposition
to maintain the present administration at
the helm for two years after Jan. 1.
It is understood that the petitions which
have been circulated extensively to-day
and to which a thousand or more names
have been affixed will be presented to Mr.
Jones late this afternoon, but his final de
cision is not looked for until to-morrow.
ROSING
Will be. the other speakers, but others on
t h e state ttoket will probably be heard
from. John Lind prefers to keep quiet
until after the flfrimaries, and if he
talks Friday evening IX will be a brief
(personal indorsement of the ticket, and
not a discussion of the issues.
All other democratic meetings in the
city for t h a t evening will be called off.
LAST DAY FOR FILING
It' Is WednesdayRush Expected To
morrow.
Candidates for office under the primary
law have until midnight Wednesday to get
their names on the primary ballot. There
was some question about the last day for
filing, b ut the attorney general has de
cided it under the well known rule of law,
excluding the first and including the last
day. The law requires filings to be made
twenty days before the primaries, which
are'' on Sept. 16. Counting the 16th, this
gives sixteen days in September, and four
in August makes Aug. 27 the last day.
Owing to the fact that there has be'eti
some dispute, most candidates will en
deavor to make up their minds a day earl
ier, and file by Tuesday, when the great
rush is expected by the secretary of state
and the various county auditors.
Candidates File.
The latest candidates in the field who
have filed their affidavits are the follow
ing: Alonzo Phillips, democratic candi
date for representative in the forty-sec
ond district C. A. Wilkin, democratic
candidate for representative in the forty
second district J. B. Holtzerman, demo
cratic candidate for park commissioner.
Candidates in Town.
J. Adam Bede, of Pine City, and B. A. -\ftiit-
rord or Hastings, candidates for congress in the
eighth and third districts, were in St. Paul to
day. P. Av Cosgrove of Ailin^ton and A. II.
Sutherland of Cambridge, members of the re
publican state committee, were at hecdmiarters.
They report that the outlook is good for the
whole state ticket and that Governor Ven Sant
will at least run even with the iest.
Want Shearer to Run.
A strong effort is being made on the part of
a number of prominent republicans to induce
James D. Shearer to run for the legislature in
the fortieth distiict. He has the matter now
tinder consideration.
Political Meetings.
W "
Wife or Creditors?
Do you carry life insurance for your wife and children or
for your creditors? This question is pertinent. In many
states the la^s enable a creditor to attach a life insurance
policy under certain circumstances. The rights of a bene-
ficiary are also materially affected by the form of policy or
contract. For instance, several companies are now writing
policies which give the insured the right to change the ben-
eficiary without the original beneficiary's consent. Such a
policy is legally the sole property of the insured, and can be
attached by creditors just like any other property not exempt.
In this respect, as in many others, the Massachusetts in-
surance law and Massachusetts policies are unequalled.
The Massachusetts insurance law fully protects the bene-
ficiary, and Massachusetts policies can not be attached by
creditors when the wife is made beneficiary.
Your age and address to any of the undersigned will se-
cure a specimen policy in the old STATE MUTUAL LIFE
of WORCESTER, MASS., with full particulars.

fact that H. L. Doherty beat W a r e this
morning without exhausteing himself
rather changed the general opmion, so
that this afternoon it seemed to be ac
cepted he would battle with Whitman.
Both W h i t m a n and .the little English
player won their contests to-day. H. Li.
Doherty having beat L. E. W a r e with

round: H. L. Doherty beat L. E. Ware,
9-7, 6-1, 6-2. Semi-finals: M. D. Whit

HENRY J. GJERTSEN'S WORK
Secures a Big Settlement for a Labor
ing Man.
. Here is a story t h a t illustrates how the
reputation of an attorney will travel out
side of his state. Last fall Charles H.
Peterson, a helper in the blacksmith shop
of the Chicago & North-Western Railway
a t Escanaba, Mich., received an injury
to his leit foot by a truck falling upon it.
For nearly a year h e sought unsuccess
fully to secure a settlement from the
company. Finally he wrote to Henry J.
Gjertsen of this city, who took up the case
and pushed it so vigorously t h a t he was
yesterday able to write to his client- that
he had settled the claim for $2,750, which
is just nine times the a m o u nt the rail
road company a t any time offered Mr.
Peterson.
