Camera Club MeetingThe Town and
Country Camera Club will hold its reg
ular weekly meeting to-morrow evening
4ft'-the Y. M. C. A. building, Tenth street
and Mary place. The subject of the lec
ture and discussion by the members will
be "Home Portraiture," including compo
sition and lighting. As this is the sea
son of the year when users of cameras
naturally turn to indoor' subjects, the
s topic will include suggestions that can be
the most readily tried.
Settled By StipulationThe trouble be
tween the William Bros. Boiler Manufac
turing company and the boiler makers'
union has been settled to the satisfaction
of all parties concerned. The misunder
standing between the members of Flour
City union, No. 11, and their employers
has been adjusted out of court by mutual
stipulation, and the injunction restraining
the strikers from interfering with their
employers* business has ,been dismissed.
The men who struck are all back at work
again.
Few Recruits AcceptedFew recruits
for the United States army have been
accepted lately at the local recruiting
office, owing to the fact that the -strength
of the army is now being reduced from
84,000 to 64.000 men. Only ten or twelve
recruits a month have been taken, and
these from among applicants that had
seen previous service. The same restric
tion will be observed until Jan. 1, al
though it may seriously disappoint the
many young men that always flock to the
recruiting offices in winter weather.
Philharmonic AppreciationThe Phil
harmonic club, last night showed its ap
preciation of the long and faithful serv
ices of John H. Chick by presenting him
a watch fob. The presentation was made
by C. N. Chadbourn. Mr. Chick leaves
on Friday for Los Angeles, where he will
make his future home. Following the
club meeting, he was entertained at a
Very informal supper at the Commercial
club by the board of directors of the club,
of which he is a member. Mr. Chick was
a charter member of the club and has
.been one of its-most active workers, and
he will be greatly missed.
Sublette's Hard HustleThere's a race
on between City Engineer Sublette and
Jack Frost as to who will win out at the
Northeast pumping station. Mr. Sublette
wants to get the roof on before snow
flies and the weather gets too cold. Thus
far he has been greatly favored by the
weather. The brick work was completed
- yesterday and the roof trusses have been
raised over the boilerhouse. To-morrow
the carpenter work on the roof will begin.
Mr. Sublette has a chance to win on the
boiler-house, but the main building is giv
ing him much concern as the roof trusses'
are not yet in place.

The Ames Go-Between Brought Into
Court to Answer to Fresh
'' .''. ' " Indictments. - f- ygj-
He Is Again Accused of Compound
ing a Crime and of Receive
- ,^"V ',-
Joseph Cohen, who thought himself
ucky in having secured the dismissal of
all cases against him except one, by plead
ing guilty to the accusation made 1n that
one case, and who subsequently decided
to stand trial and withdrew his plea, was
treated to an unpleasant surprise this aft
ernoon, when he was arrested and again
brought into Judge Elliott's courtroom to
plead to two indictments returned by the
grand jury yesterday, and which renew
the charges made against him in previous
indictments.
Cohen came into court accompanied-by
a deputy sheriff at twenty minuted past
2 o'clock. The court was busy at the
time and he took a seat inside the' rail.
The arraignment came twenty minutes
later.
The first indictment read
hen of compounding a crime an
the fact that he had accepted"120' from
May Macintosh with the ' understanding
that the payment would buy for her im- j
munity from arrest on a charge of keep-I
ing a house of ill faitje. ' * . j
A plea of not guilty was entered and bail J
was fixed at $1 000. - A. H. Hall, Cohen's
attorney, asked that the case be tried at
once, but it will have to go' over the term
notwithstanding.
A second indictment charged Cohen
with receiving $25 from Jessie Harris un
der similar conditions. To this also he
pleaded not guilty, reserving the right,
however, to interpose a demurrer to-mor
row morning if his attorney decides such a
course to be advisable.
Prevalence of This Plague Prompts
the Board of Health *
to Act.
Barber Shops Are Clearly Under the
General Supervision of the
Health Department.
Regulation of barber .shops is the new
sanitary measure that the board of health
has in mind. The attention of Health
Commissioner Hall and other members of
the board has been called to barber shops
as coming within their jurisdiction. The
"tonsorlal parlors" of Minneapolis are, of
course, as clean and up-to-date as those
of other cities and in the main are satis
factorily conducted, but it's an old adage
that jfchere is always room for improve
ment. Just at present there is a severe
epidemic of barbers' itch in' the city, so
that the prospective movement is "timely.
No barber likes to have the reputation
of communicating the loathsome and irri
tating disease knows as barbers" itch to
his cstomers, but nevertheless some of
the best shops have been so unfortunate
as to spread the disease. There can
naturally be no question but that the
health department has jurisdiction.
In some eastern cities the health au
thorities, are enforcing stringent rules for
the barbers. Dr. Hall has Been posting
himself on various restrictive rules and
laws in force in other cities and at the
next meeting of the board, he will be
supplied with all possible information.
He suggests the following rules as
proper for observance, as they are not
severe or extreme, but -if followed would
prove most beneficial to patrons of bar
ber shops and might popularize shaving:
The place of business, together with nil the.
furniture, shall be kept at all times in a cleanly
condition. .
Mngs. shaving brushes and razors shall be
sterilized by Immersion In boiling water after
every separate use thereof.
A separate clean towel shall be used for each
person.
Alum, or other material used to stop the
flow of blood, shall be used only in powdered
form and applied only on a towel.
The use of powder puffs is prohibited.
Every barber shop shall be provided with
running hot and cold water.
No person shall be allowed to use any barber
shop as a dormitory.
Every barber shall cleanse his hands thorough
ly immediately after serving each customer.
CHURCHES ON TAX ROLLS
Washington, D. 0., Puts Those Used
for Entertainments There
The Situation Here.
E. T. Abbott, former county surveyor,
was gratified to learn this morning that
the municipal authorities of Washington,
D. C, had decided to place upon the tax
rolls the First Congregational church
building of that city, owing to the fact
that the building is rented at times for
other than religious purposes. An addi
tional reason is that admission fees are
charged to the entertainments given in the
church.
"That's only right," commented Mr. Ab
bott, "and it's what I'm trying to bring
about in Minneapolis. The use of some
of our churches her as places for secular
entertainments is illegal without a doubt.
In the first place, they pay no .license, and
the city ordinance provides that. a. fee of
$25 must be paid as a license for giving
concerts in any building not licensed by
the year as a theater. * The ordinance
continues, 'No personfchall advertise or at
tempt to give such entertainment or per
formance without havings first obtained a
license.' The punishment for violation of
the law is a fine of not less tlCan $10* or
more than $100, the convicted person to be
imprisoned until the fine is paid, although
the imprisonment is limited' to '90 days.
"Then as to such churches being ex
empt from taxation: The state law is
that a building exempted must be used
'exclusively for public worship,' and in the
45th, Minnesota (229) and elsewhere, the
courtsMinnesota have Insisted) that this statut of
exemption must be 'strictly construed.'
"Yes, something will have to be done
here, and if the churches don't quit giving
secular entertainments, I intend to begin
myself a civil suit to test the law."

THE QUEER FULLER GASE
local Associates of E. H. Fuller, Un
able to Account for His
Chicago Arrest.
Officials of the Minneapolis, Superior,
St. Paul & Winnipeg road, at the head
quarters in this city, are entirely In the
dark -in regard to the arrest of Secretary
E. H. Fuller by federal secret service of
ficers in Chicago. The last letter received
from Mr. Fuller was dated 1:30 a. m.,
Nov. 24. In this letter nothing was said
that bore oM the subject.. It implied that
Mr. Fuller was going on east as sodn as
he met S. M. Hawley, president of the
road. .
It is believed by Mi\
that a great blunder has been made by the
postoffice inspectors, in detaining Mr.'Ful-
ler on the charge of attempting to dis
pose of postage stamps supposed to have
been the proceeds of some postoffice rob
bery. Mr. Fuller's brother is not well

hot the slightest doubt but some grievous

Young George Christiansen Beats
His Way Here to See His
Steady.
But His Nellie Had Become Incor
rigible and Was in the
Reform School:
George Christianson, a 17-year-old boy,
came all the way from Chicago to Minne
apolis, . beating his way on freight trains
and Hying on what he could pick up by the
way, to see his girlv and arrived" here,
only to learn that the yduhg lady, had just
been sent to the state training school.
He lingered in town for a few hours and
was himself arrested on a charge* of
vagrancy by Detective McAllister.
The romance which -involved young
Christianson in so much trouble, began
In Chicago about two years ago, when he
met Nellie Howard, a Minneapolis girl,
then living in that city. Nelle was 18
and George was 15, but it was a case of
love at first sight. He took her to the
theater and bought her candy and ice
cream. They were,happy and were soon
pledged to each other.
After a few weeks Nellie returned to
Minneapolis, where she became so incor
rigible that Judge
her to the state training school on a
charge of drunkenness. . She took her
sentence, but refused-to tell the officers
whose pictui% it'was that she wore over
her heart. She admitted, however that
it was "her fellow who lives in Chicago
arid who is a swell guy."
Nellie was sent to Red Wing and the
Officers had almost' forgotten her, when
Detective McAllister found ydung Christ

H. V. Jones' Case Against Times in
Proper JurisdictionThurston
Appears as Publisher. ,
Herscliell V. Jones has won the first
round in his legal battle for control Of the
Minneapolis Times. Yesterday afternoOn
Judge Cray. held that the local district
court has jurisdiction and refusal to dis
solve a temporary, .restraining order,
granted last week by Judge Brooks which
prevents the Times company from entering
upon its books any transfer of what is
known as the Haskell-Palmer stock.
Some time ago H. V. Jones entered into
a contract with W.. E. Haskell and C. M.
Palmer of New York, .for the purchase of
3,200 shares of Times stock^a controlling
interest in the company. Later, however,
a dispute arose, and Messrs. Haskell and
Palmer declined to accept the contract as
binding. Mr. Jonee. then, began suit here
to compel a specific performance of the.
contract and sequred- an order against
the Times company, preventing any trans
fer of the stock in. dispute.
The Times and Messrs. Haskell and pal
mer at once claimed that the. local court
was without, jurisdiction, and the matter
was argued extensively with the result al
ready noted. The case will now come up
on its .merits., the hearing having been set
for next Friday morning.
Mr.. JOnes to-day made the following
statement:
"We bought of Messrs. Haskell and
Palmer their shares of stock in the Min
neapolis Times. We made two payments
on pur contract before we were notifledby
Haskell and Palmer that the deal had been
terminated by them. No deal was ever
entered into in better faith than we exer
cised and we nbV purpose to ascertain
whether we have any rights that men j^ho
enter, into contracts are bound to respect.
Our case is in the courts. We. have not
lost faith in justice and when we reach
the end of the court adjudication we ex
pect to be in possession of The Times."
At the. head of the editorial column of
the Times this morning appeared the name
of "Robert B. Thurston, Publisher," in
place of "W. E. Haskell, Manager." This
apparently, indicates that Mr. Thurston
has assumed active charge of the publica
tion, pending the decision of the courts.

THEY'R E STATELAND
Private Parties Trying to Secure
v Control of Islands Adjacent
to Hall's Discovery.
In Case They
erty, th? Government Would
Not Yield Title.
front. The Aornal Jffurvau, JC**tn 08, Ttl
Building, Wmthlngt^n,
. Washington, Nov. Si.^Efforts are now
being made in Washington by private par
ties to secure title to islands in the Mis
sipi river near the Plymouth avenue bridge
but so far they have been unsuccessful.
Early in Ofctober the interior department
received fr.pm the general land office the
appeal ..of wiliiarh Burfenning from, the
decision of - the commissioner, hbldpg that
lie could not make entry of these islands
because'.th.eys.had..been reserved:..for the
, use of the war department in connection
with the improvement of the Mississippi
above St, Anthony falls.
There are two of these islands, adjoining
one recently acquired by Health Commis
sioner Hall. They are described as lot 9,
section 1, 17, and lots 8, 9 arid 10, section
22, township 29 north, range 24 west, and
aggregate perhaps two acres in area.
When the appeal was received the sec
retary, in order to learn whether there
waa any reason why the islands should be
kept as a government reservation, asked
the secretary o# war for an opinion
whether, the order of withdrawal of the
islands made-some time since, which in
cluded all the islands above Cairo, 111.,
should be modified so as to except those
above St. Anthony falls. The secretary
of. war referred the query to the chief of
engineers, who in turn sent it to Major
Hoxie at St. Paul with instructions to
submit a report. Major Hoxie's report is
against any change in the existing status.
He says that the islands are valuable to
the government for the quantities of
brush and reeds they furnish for dam
making and that if they were transferred
back to the jurisdiction .of the interior de
partment, the party who acquired title
might, put in a claim for damages for flow
age because of improvements that the
government might make to increase the
depth of the river.
Major.Hoxie also takes up another and
more important phase of the question in
the suggestion that the islands were
formed from accretions since the state of
Minnesota was admitted to the union, and
that, therefore, the title, is, in the .state
and not in the United States. It will be
recalled that when Dr. Hall tried to get
the title to the island which 'he'' recently
secured for the city by making a home
stead entry therefor, he was told that it
belong to the state because it was ac
creted land. He, therefore, secured his
title through the state.
General Gillespie has forwarded the pa
pers to the secretary of war, with the
recommendation that the secretary Of the
interior be requested to make an exami
nation and inform the war department as
to whether the state or federal govern
ment owns the islands which Burfenning
is trying to get. General Gillespie also
concurs in Major Hoxie's recommendation
that if the title is in the federal govern
ment, the islands be still held in reserve.
Major Hoxie, seen in St. Paul to-day by
a Journal man, said:
"I am well satisfied that the government
has no claim on the Islands in question,
and that they belong to the state of Min
nesota. Very careful surveys of the river
were made in 1871 and 1874, and the maps
of those surveys show no trace of the
islands at that point. That indicates
that they were formed by accretion since
that time, and since Minnesota became a
state. What t^e state Jaw. provides aa to
the ownership of such" lands, I do not
know." - -.': .'- * - - -
Major Hoxie is strongly of the opinion
that any islands in the upper .river Which
belong to the government should be re
tained. He says on this point:
"The. Mississippi is navigable upstream
from the gulf to St. Anthony Falls, but it
is navigable downstream from Lake Itasca
to the- gulf. Appropriations may be made
and .have,been made for keeping the river
clear for driving logs down. One appro
priation of $10,000 was recently used for
sueh purpose near Grand Rapids: The
upper river is also navigable \for steamers
between the ponds. Should private per
sons get islands along the ehanriel, the
government could not undertake improve
ments without running serious risk of
damage suits for flowage. Possession of
these Islands would save considerable ex
pense in . providing materials, and the
smaller an appropriation is the more likely
it is to pass. For this reason it is better for
the locality if the government retains con
trol of the islands."
The islands in question are two small
patches near the west bank, directly under
the Plymouth bridge, and Opposite Dr.

The Bowling Alley and Free Kindergarten
Taken Up by Wesley
Chapel. \
It is expected that work will begin Mon
day morning on the construction of a
building in the rear of Wesley chapel, at
Twenty-third avenue S and Twenty
fourth street, for a bowling alley, reading
room and e free kindergarten.
Rev. Dr. J. S. Montgomery, pastor of
Wesley church, became convinced some
time ago that the influence of the chapel
could be widened by adding these accesso
ries. A great many railroad men and em
ployes of manufacturing establishments
live in this part of the city, who will ap
preciate the physical, and moral benefits
to be obtained from this new departure.
Several business men of the city have
expressed great willingness to give finan
cial support to this sort of work, and funds
have been coming in rapidly since the plan
was submitted by Dr. Montgomery.
