PLAN FOR THE EXPO
The Public Affairs Committee Hears
the Report of Its Special
The Idea Is to Retain the Conven
tion Hall and House Small
The Commercial club public affairs
committe probably paved the way for the
disposition, of the Exposition building by
adopting a repo rt submitted this after
noon by a special committee, favorms the
partition of the building for manufactur
ing purposes, and at the same ti me re
taining the convention hall. The commit
tee advised that such disposition be made
of the building as the only feasible way of
preserving it for the best business inter
ests of the city both in the way of utiliz
ing the "vast amount of floor space now
going to waste and at the same time se
curing for the city a convention hall now
controlled by private Interests.
It was shown that the property could be
secured for not more than $65,000, and
that it would cost in the neighborhood of
$100,000 to remodel it for manufacturing
purposes The committ ee complained of
lack of desired support from business in
terests in furtheran ce of the project, hut
it is believed that all the co-operation
needed will be forthcoming wh en the na
ture of the enterprise is fully understood.
With that end in \ lew the club will give
business men a chance to subscribe to the
necessary fund before its option on the
property expires Nov. 10.
The property is pow owned by T. B
Janney and B. F . Nelson of the original
board of exposition directors.
It is understood that the real estate
firm of Chute brothers is anxious to
finance the deal immediately.
FEABS FOB THE ELK
James Fullerton of Montana Says
the Animals Are Hunted for
He Has Just Appealed Personally to
Roosevelt to Protect
James Fullerton of Red Lodge, Mont.,
was in the city to-day en route home
from Washington, D. C , whe re he has
been to interest President Roosevelt in
protecting the big game in Yellowstone
Park. Mr Fullerton, while admitting
that he was at one ti me a poacher, is now
greatly interested in protecting the big
game on the reservation. H e reports that
Preside nt Roosevelt is interested in the
matter and has promised to do all he can
to enforce the laws against poaching in
"There are a great many elks being
slaughtered in the park," said Mr Fuller
ton, "and I am sorry to say that the order
of Elks is Indirectly responsible for it.
The custom which Is now in vogue of
wearing elk's teeth for -watch charms,
causes the slaughter of hundreds of elk
every year. Elk teeth are worth $4 each
at Red Lodge now and each elk carries
two teeth ^hus a man makes 58 by kill
ing one elk. If a man gets in among a
herd of elk, he can make a lot of money
in one day, and it is likely he will never
be caught If the.order of Elks would
stop this wearing elk teeth as watch
charms, there would not be so many of
the animals killed
"The laws regulating the slaught er of
game on the government reserve are suffi
ciently stringent, but the trouble all lies
in the fact that they can't be enforced.
There are not enough guards employed,
and then the guards are not watched care
fully enough by the superintendent. It
doesn't take a great deal of money to b uy
the privilege of hunting in the park if one
goes about it in the right way The sol
diers get $13 a month and a $50 bill looks
migh ty big in their eyes. T wo more
troops of cavalry could look after the park
and keep the poachers out.
"They say there are between 35,000 and
50 000 elk in the reservation, but I want
to say that I lo t helieve there are over
1 000 I have hunted elk in the moun
tains for over thirty years and I am sure
that there are not more than that many
elk In the park. I traveled 170 miles
through that country this fall and I saw
just eighteen elk ' "

"The Fi ve Poin ts of New York," said
Mrs. Skidmore to-day, "was the most no

haunt of the criminal and vicious class
tifty years ago. Since our first humble
attempt at its regeneration, a great
change has come over the neighborhood,
and while Hector and Baxter streets looH
much as they did in bygone years, there
has been a great improvement in the tene

awakened conscience in New York, and
practical philanthropy is doing much to
alleviate the condition of people, in the
lower walks who were formerly abandoned

fifteen different nationalities in o ur fine

predominate. W e first occupied one of
the saloons which abound in that neigh

SUPREME COURT ACTS
Orders a Name Stricken from the Ballot
In Dakota County.
Dakota county republicans have now
only one candidate for the lower house of
the legislature. The supreme court to
day ordered Countv Auditor Kelly to re
move from the ballot the name of A. L.
Dixson of Waterford.
Only one republican presented himself
for nomination at the primaries and the
county committee undertook to All the
other place, holding that there was a
vacancy. The county auditor refused to
accept the nomination, relying on an opin
ion of Attorney General Douglas, who held
that the omission was not a vacancy, and
that after the primaries candidates could
only go on by petition as independents.
The county committee went into court and
got an order from Judge Crosby, who
ruled that a vacan cy existed, which the
committee had power to All.
Since then the same point was broug ht
directly before the supreme court from
Hennepin county. The could held with

City Ticket Shows Straight Socialist and
Socialist Labor Candidates.
City Clerk Lydiard has received a let

the socilaist labor party, inclosing news
paner clippings of the Nash-Van i.ear, so
cialist controversy and informing the city
clerk that if he pursues the same course as
the secretary of the state, in allowing only
one candidate to use the name socialist,
the socialist labor party will be obliged to
take action which may delay the issuance
of the ballots. Apparently Mr. Lydiard
does not intend to follow in the footsteps
of the secretary of state, for on the sam

A NEW DOWN-TOWN LOOP
Made by a Cross-Over Switch at
First Avenue South and
A crew of men .began to-day to connect
the First and Fourth avenu^ systems of
street railway with a curve at First ave
nue S and Third street. The track will
join the right-hand tracks of bo th lines,
thus making It pos&ible for Fourth avenue
short line cars to loop by the way of Sixth
street and permitting the company to re
place the stubby double-ender cars which
now switch back from Hennepin and
Fourth street with large cars. The com
pany has always contended that It was
impossible under existing circumstances
to return Fourth avenue short line cars
except over the First aven ue line. This
method was used a while, but the new
loop wil lmake it possible for the short
line cars to go up Hennepin to Sixth, down
Sixth to First avenue, on First avenue to
Thtrd, and back to Thirty-first street.
The use of the loop in this way would be
a great boon to business men and shop
ping women who wish to take a Foorth
aven ue car from the center of the city,
and who are now compelled to transfer
from the Eighth and Central line at Sixth
and Fourth avenue S.
THE SCHOOLS CBOWDED
Superintende nt Jordan's Monthly Report
Shows That the Congestion Is
Superintende nt C M. Jordan's report to
the board of education to-day shows that
the crowded condition of the public
schools is still a serious problem. The
number of pupils admitted in the month
closing Friday. Oct. 24, was 1,121, making
the total number 36,230. On half-sessions
there are 820, even though the annex at
the Sumner school has already been
opened. A t other badly-erowded buildings,
annexes are being prepared as quickly as
possible, and that at the Peabody will be
rea dy within a few days. Many of the
teache rs have been allowed to visit oth er
schools, and from the reports, made by
the teachers in person, the results have
been very satisfactory and will do much
good for the schools. In order to save
the expense of substitutes, the superin
tendent requires all principals in buildings
of twelve rooms and less to take charge
of a room in the absen ce of a teacher.
Money Raised by School Children of
the State for Hiawatha
The Art Commission's Refusal to
Place Statue in Park Causes
The decision of the art commission to
refuse to allow the Fjelde statue of Hia
watha and Minnehaha to be placed in
Minneha ha park has developed an embar
rassing situation. The problem is what
to do with, the lund ot about $1,000 raised
by Mrs. L, P. Hunt and her committee for
this express purpose.
This money was secured by penny col
lections from the school children all over
the sta te and it is manifestly impossible
to return it either to the individual do
nors or the schools contributing. T o use
the money for another purpose than that
for which it was asked does not seem quite
the proper thing and there the matter
A solution suggested by a man deeply
interested bo th in beautifying the city and
in the schocls is that in view of the un
usual circumstances the art commission
might be induced to waive a point and
allow the original plan to be executed. H e
suggests that it ia not necessary to give
the statue a commanding site, thrusting
it upon the attention. A secluded spot
where it will be little noticed will answer
every purpose so far as the children are
concerned. His point is that it is a real
misfortune to disappoint the children
whose interest in the project has always
been a deep one and who could never be
made to understand the reason for its
failure. H e thinks the influence of a dis
appointment of that kind would be more
harmful than that of a piece of art work
somewhat below the standard desired by
the commission. In view of the fact that
the plan was made and funds provided for
It before the commission came into ex
istence, he thinks the commission might in
this case simply allow the matter to go by
default, as out of its province.
It was only by special permission that
the collection for the statue was author
ized and there may be similar occasions in
the future. Failu re to carry ou this plan
would be a damper much felt in arous
ing ^interest in the schools in any other
One proposal made in regard to the
fund, if the barri er to its intended use
proves unsurmountabl e, is to turn the
money over to the state library commis
sion to be expended on the state traveling
library. This, it is believed, would be
open to few objections as no other institu
tion would so nearly rea ch and benefit all
of those who contributed to the fund. The
commission is in great need of funds, for
its appropriation is a very small one and
the demand for libraries far exceeds the
possible supply provided by the state ap
propriation. The thousand dollars would
equip from twenty to thir ty small libraries
of the highest grade according to the
number of volumes, and in time could go
the rounds of the communities that gave
donations to the state fund.

not determine what moved the cars. H e
was curious and he wanted to investigate.
H e tried to follow every car he saw, but
his guardia ns kept a string on him.
This afternoon, Sig Harris' sister took
"Knipe" out for a walk Suddenly a
street car came dashi ng along and "Knipe"
as usual tried to follow it. Miss Harris
held to the rope as long as she could, but
the strength of the dog was too great and
he broke away. Away went the car and
away went "Knipe" in full chase.
The car, on Eigtth and Central line, but
at Washington avenue "Knipe" took a
transfer. H e went out to the end of the
Twentieth avenue N line and then started
back for the city. Not yet having learned
the mystery of the street car, when he got
to Washington avenue he started for Cam
den Place. Then he followed the car back
to Hennep in where he was found by a de
tachment from the university and taken
back to his place of confinement.
DR. NOETHEOP HOME
Talks to the Students About Col
leges of the East.
Preside nt Northrop returned from an
eastern trip this morning and spoke in
chapel on the relative conditions of eas t
ern and western colleges. H e said:
"While the work done in Minnesota com
pares very favorably with that of the
older colleges of the est, there is a marked
difference in the artistic surroundings.
The easte rn colleges seem to have an
abundan ce of wealth and to kn ow how to
use it. Their buildings, chapels and class
rooms are works of art and are much more
pleasant than we have Princeton is a
notable example her, building* are over
gro wn wi th ivy and the interiors are very
attractive. Many of her alumni have at
tained great wealth and have come back
to the college town, and spend their ti me
trying to aid and beautify their alma
"The university of Minnesota is still
young and I have hopes that her graduates
will be moved by the same impulses in the
next generation. They are as loyal as are
the graduates of the easte rn schools and
our own college will one day be noted for
its artistic surroundings and handsome
Law Class Moves.
University law students who have been
reciting in the hall over the university
book store will hereafter be heard in the
basement of the armor y. The faculty so
arranged yesterday. The noise and other
inconveniences made the book store hall
undesirable and.the students protested.
A DIFFERENT MATTER.
"So that la the wild animal tamer who travels
with your show ?"
"Yeafffhe's the fellow you see go into the
cages ana make the wild beasts stand around."
'I, noticed he must have been handled rough
ly lately by the scratches on his face "
"Yes, but the animals bad nothing to do with
that. His wife is responsible for those. He
can't seem to tame her."

Rapid Growth Necessitates Changes In
Articles of IncorporationMeet-
ing This Evening.
Important amendments of the articles
of incorporation of the Mmikahda club
will be made at the annu al meeting at the
clubhouse this evening. The club has
grown so rapidly since its incorporation,
a few years ago, that it is now found
necessary to increase the latitude of the
governing body. As the articles now
stand, it is difficult to finance the club
along the lines its growth demands This
fact was forced home on the directors
when it became necessary to purchase
four lots which stood directly in the way
of the ninth hole on the golf links.
Four new members of the board of
governors will also be elected. They will
succeed A. T. Rand, L. R. Day, Cllve T.

ley's orchestra will be in attendance.
