'TIGER LILLIES' AT THE DEWEY
There's nothing in a name. The "Tiger

much of th o fun, is fitted for better

methods of funmaking are legitimate and,
while he cannot sing, he is at least on
a par in this respect with several com

The olio opens with an act by the Gar -

only indifferently. Th e Deonzo brothers
have a difficult barrel jumping act which
they perform with apparent ease Black

THE MIGHTY MC0Y
Chairman of the Cancelation Com
mittee Discovers Himself for the
Benefit of the Voters.
He Claims Credit for Various Plans
in Which He Played a
One of the amusing features of the al -
dermanic campaign in the ninth ward is a
pamphlet published by Alderman Peter
McCoy, name of author unknown, en -
titled "Some of the Things I Have Done."
A perusal of this pamphlet mig ht lead one
to believe that. Alderman McCoy is a
migh ty figure In the city council, and such
is doubtless the impression the work is
intended to create. Here is where the
joke comes in.
No president of the council ever ignored
party lines more than Acting Mayor D. P .
Jones. Hi s sole purpose was to secure
the best results for the city, and to that
end he apportioned the work out to those
whom he thoug ht could the best handle
it. That the democrats were not ignored
is shown by the fact that Alderman Dwyer
is chairman of the very important com
mittee on gas . which has charge of all
the street lighting in the city and in
public buildings Alderman Ryan is chair
man of the important committee on
licenses, Alderman Rand of bonds of city
officers, and Alderman Peter Nelson of
the police committee.
Alderman McCoy, after sitting four
years in the council, is chairman of the
committee on cancelation, and once a
year has an errand-boy's job of burning
up cancelled coupons. This is a pretty
fair indication of the value placed upon
his services by his colleagues.
Alderman McCoy takes great credit to
himself for keeping the garbage crematory
out of his ward. Th e aldermen were not
in favor of placing the crematory in the
residence section of the city, and there
never was any serious intention of plac
ing it in the ninth ward, even though the
board of health did so recommend. The
crematory was kept out of other wards,
but the aldermen do not use the fact as
an argument for their re-election.
Then he wants credit for compelling cer
tain firms to agree to fill up certain
streets before giving it permission to ex -
cavate in the streets for the purpose of
taking out the rock.
It is the city engineer's and street com
missioner's du ty to see that this work of
filling is done and they attend to their
duty, except in the ninth ward, according
to Alderman McCoy's pamphlet.
"I have secured more sewers for .the
ninth ward than any ward in the city,"
&avs the ninth ward humorist. A s every
one knows, the city is extending the sew
er system in' all parts of the city as fast
as funds and the population will warrant.
The sewers doubtless were placed where
they needed and because the taxpayers
had the money and petitioned for the
sewers. Sewers are built on the recom
mendation of the city engineer.
In the same selflish spirit, Alderman
McCoy robs the city engineer of the credit
of starting the street sign movement
takes all the credit for cycle paths in his
ward, to the exclusion of the cyclists, who
thoug ht they had something to do with the
improvement, and pats himself on the
back for being the sole factor in securing
big street cars in the ward without men
tioning the other eleven aldermen who
were interested in Improving the service
on these same car lines. T o cap the
climax, Mr. McCoy discovers that he has
done a great good in securing city employ
ment for his constituent^, ^he littlee al -

A DAY IN A BUBBLE
The Unhappy Experience of George
Peavey in the Rain of
The Bubble Broke and Searching
Party Failed to Find
When Frank T. Heffelfinger and George
Peavey of the Peavey Grain, company
started for Minneapolis in their automo
bile early last Saturday, they little
thought what trials and tribulations were
ahead of them. What was undertaken
as a pleasure excursion became a "pleas
ure exertion," which has sadly shaken
the confidence of the above gentlemen in
the automobile as a reliable medium of
They were "eating up" a stretch of
road cityward from Minnetonka Mills at
8 o'clock, when the machine suddenly
commenced snorting and bucking like a
broncho. Then, with a convulsive shud
der, which nearly unhorsed its occupants,
the works ran down completely and left
the toiirists stranded in an Inhospitable
clime. T o add to their discomfort, iarge,
chilling rain drops began to descend
Being long and lithe of limb, Mr. Hef
felfinger volunteered to walk to the Pea
vey elevator at St. Louis Park, whence
he could telephone for the hired man to
drive the old, reliable family team out to
the stranded wreck and tow the same to
"I won 't be long," he called to Mr. Pea
vey, and with this comforting assuran ce
he trudged six miles through the rain and
mud to the park, where he made by 'phone
the necessary arrangements. Thinking no
more of the occurrence, Mr. Heffelfinger
went to his office and resum ed business.
Three hours later a telephone message
from his man at St. Louis Park informed
him that neither George, Peavey nor the
auto were anywhere to be found. Heffel
finger used a slang phrase, and , giving
the drver more explicit directions, urged
him to try again. Long after noon, un
able to report progress or any trace of
the castaway, the searching party gave
up the hunt and returned to town for the
In the interim, though inwardly cursing
his fate, Mr. Peavey tried to make him
self as comfortable as possible, by button
ing his rain coat close about him and
camping undey the tarpaulins. H e would
have been resigned, as the long hours
wore on, but for the fact that, while he
had plenty of tobacco, a minute examina
tion of his apparel failed to disclose a
A t 4 p. m., thoroughly chilled, after
eight hours in the saddle, at war with all
the elements and a pronounced enemy of
society in general, he struck out for town
himself. B y this ti me the road was one
long drawn out mire, and it was far from
easy going. Mr. Peavey's heart bounded
with delight when a farmer 's wagon over
took him .
"Give you $5 for a ride into town," of
fered the pedestrian.
"No strangers kin ride with me," replied
Reuben, suspiciously. "Giddap!"
Mr. Peavey thought of "man's inhuman
ity to man," and kept moving as best he
could toward St. Louis Park, which he
finally reached, bespattered with mud
from head to foot.

LUMBER MAY BE HIGH

the CauseDemand Is
It is feared that a low market and a
good demand for the higher grades of
lumber will result in higher prices. The
season for sawing has been sho rt in Min
neapolis on account .of the small supply
of logs, which has prevented the use of
night shifts and which will compel the
mills to shut down two weeks earlier
than usual. This will mean a large short

WALTON IS NOT GUILTY
The Jurymen Finished the Case in
Short Order When It Reached
Special to The Journal.
Anoka, Minn., Oct. 28.Captain Percy
Walton, the Minneapolis guardsman, was
found not guilty at 8 o'clock last night of
the charge of manslaughter in the second
degree for the accidental shooting of
Johnny Krisko. County Attorney Pratt
made the closing address to the jury for
the state and Frank M. Nye spoke for the
defendant with his usual eloquence.
The jury was out less than two hours.
When the court, defendant, attorneys,
clerk and others, had been notified that a
verdict had been reached, the jury came in
and was polled. The court read the slip
passed it to the clerk, who read the words,
"Not guilty," and then the Jurymen were
asked the formal question if that was
their verdict. They were then dismissed.
Walton was congratulated by all his
friends and then he stepped forward and
shook each juror's hand. The scene in
the court room was a quiet one, there not
being more than a dozen spectators pre s
