American Linseed Oil Co.'s Men Ob ject to Labor Saving Machi- .'.- neryOther Strikes. Four strikes are in progress in Minne apolis and several hundred men are idle. The strikes involve the employes of the American Linseed company the mill wrights at the Standard flour mill, the eigarmakers of several shops and several wagon and carriage makers. All of the strikes were started this week save that of the eigarmakers. which has been in progress for two weeks. i Th e millwrights went out Monday eve ning Because they could not agree with their employers upon wages to be paid in reconstructing the Standard mill. Th e union scale, in effect here for several months, is 40 cents an hour for special Work, while regular work in the mills is paid for at the rate of $3 a day of ten hours. Th e men employed at regular work draw.their pay for every day in the year, whether the mills are operated or not. When the work of. reconstruction began, the managers paid- the men on basis of the regular work. Efforts at an adjustment failed and the strike was or - dered. The strike of the wagon and carriage makers seems to be for the recognition of the union. Th e new scale presented recently to the employers proposed a change of only 25 cent a day in the black smith department, and the refusal of the employers to sign the scale was taken to mean that they would not recognize the union. One hundred men are idle. The introduction of labor-saving ma chinei-y by the American Linseed Oil com pany was the cause of the strike at its mill. Th e men objected and sixty of them were formally discharged by the manager. The men say they are out on a strike, but the manager of the company says they have been discharged. The eigarmake rs in certain shops went out on a strike about two weeks ago be cause women were employed** in the shops at low wages. A settlement does not seem near? BONDS FOR BATHS Legislature Will Be Asked to Au thorize This City to Borrow $50,000. Health Commissioner Hall Urges the Crying Need of Municipal Bath Houses. The legislature will be asked to issue more bonds for public improvements in Minneapolis before it adjourns. It is doubtful if municipal bathhouses come under the technical head of "public improvements," but , however that may be, Alderman James Dwyer, chairman of the special committee on bathhouses, will be asked to request the legislature to au thorize the issuance of bonds to the amount of $50,000'for the erection of bath houses in tliis city. ' --' "I shall see Alderman -Dwyer at. my earliest convenience," aid Heal th Com missioner P . M. Hall, "and ask him to reqiiest such an issue before it is too late. For $50,000 we can construct three fine bathhouses in those sections of the ctiy which stand most In need of such facili ties.

They Rely Upon Favorable Impres sion Following Trial to, ' - - Aid Motion."" ~ 1-' Dr. A. A. Ames' motion to have the de fault order in relation to his $10,000 bail bonds set aside or to have his liability in the matter canceled will probably not be ma de at this term of court, or, at least, not until after his trial on the charge of receiving a bribe. This announceme nt was made by^Henry S. Mead, one of Dr. Ame s' attorneys, and if his present plan is carried out the judges of the district court will not have any immediate difficulty in deciding who shall hear.the arguments. The attorneys''Id ea in the delay is that the court after ."the trial will be fully con vinced of the doctor's entire good faith and perhaps will be disposed to show more, leniency. When the accusedi.cOmes to trial like a man and faces his accusers in a way to pjcove that he has/no inten tion of evading the processes of the law, it is believed ' by the Ames faction that the time for urging a. motion for the canceling of the defendant's liability on the bonds will be ripe. The Ames trial is now booked, for Mon day, April 27. I t is the intention of both the state and the defendant to have no further delay in the case and it is given out positively that the trial will be begun on the 27th, 28th or at the very latest on the -'9th of April.

A meeting was held to-day at Which mem bers _of the delegation went upon record! Triose favoring the plan are: Messrs. Shearer, Shove, Armstrong, Bardwell, Fryberger, Stevehsoi), Helliwell and Nolan. Those against are: Messrs. Fust, Gil lette, Girling, Johnson, Deming, Smith and Fosseen. '-'? : Mr. Shepard, who majority, was absent / The minority announced-this afternoon that it would carry the fight'to the. floor of the,housed Th e legislative session ex - pires Tuesday, arid fiaxd work must be jdbne if the bond bill,- in Jit's amended, form is passed in time to get-pnto the senate. The plan under - consideration-' was to amend the ssnate file!a4nhorizing the is suance of $400,000 for . the completion, of the courthouse by increasing the amount to $500,000 and this was the proposition upon which the first vote w as taken, Later the delegation voted on the file as it jcame in from the senate, and this vote stood 8 to 6 for the measure. Messrs Smith arid Fosseen announced that they would fight both propositions on the floor of the house and that they would do everything in their power to defeat the bill, wheth er in Its simple or amended form. The meeting to-day was preceded by a public hearing, attended by a large num ber of Minneapolis business men,, all of whom urged the delegation to support the auditorium plan. Among those pres ent were W . L. Harris of the New Eng land Furniture company, E . J. Phelps, S, A. Harris of the Northwestern National bank, Frederick Fayram of the Philhar monic club, Thomas Voegeli, Trftfford F . Jayne, L. B . Elwood.D. Percy Jones, C. H . Chadbourne and the Chadbourne In - vestment company* A . E . Zonne of the Coriklin & Zonne company, Harry W . Jones, architect C. T. Thompson, attor ney F . B . Long, architect A. B . Cham berlain, .architect J . W . Thomas, me r chant Frederick W . Lyman of the Ly - man-Eliel Drug company E . C. Gale, at torney. W. L . Harris said that the legislature should consider two "things: First, doth e taxpayers want this auditorium and , sec ond, is it architecturally feasible? H e then called upon Lester B. Elwood, whom he introduced as the president of the Min neapolis real esta te board. Mr. Elwood said the board was almost unanimously in favor of the plan,and added that it would ha ve adopted resolutions but for the fact that there had not bsen time to call a meeting. Harry W . Jones, as an architect, said that he had been slow to reaph a conclu sion regarding the courthouse auditorium but that he thought beter of it the more he considered it. A letter was also read from F . B. Kees, another architect, fa voring the plan. S. A. Harris said: "This plan com mends-itself to so large a number of tax payers- that I see no hope of our getting an auditorium within, the next ten years if it is not carried out. If erected out side by. subscription our hall would cost us from $300,000 to. $500,000. - Up,der this plan it could.be built for $1,00,000." E . J . Phelps*-su^ges^ed that the rental secured from. tHe ^H,^QUld.. more than pay the interest *J6i\! fhe'.^bonds and its maintenance. H e read from an article published In,.The Journal some time ago, and written by himself after an in - vestigation into the auditorium condition in various cities all over the country to show that a hall having a greater seat ing capacity than 2,500 was not desirable. D. Percy Jones said he believed the real estate men of the city, who pay two: thirds of the taxes, favored the plan. H e thought w^lth the auditorium erected in the courthouse building, the city would secure a maximum benefit at a 'minimum of expense. Following his talk the delegation went into executive session and there took the action already related. INSPECTED THE COURT Champions of Auditorium Movement Look Over the Ground. Before waiting upon the legislature, the champions of the courthouse auditorium .movement inspected the great court which they believe can. be _utilized t osuch ad - vantage. F . B. Long, the architect, who accompanied the delegation to St. Paul, explained just what was contemplated and pointed out.to the investigators wljat changes would be necessary in the base ment and first noors In answer ,tp the argument made recently. by,L. S. Gillette that the construction of the auditorium would call for the.sacrifice of $50,000 worth of improvements already installed, Mr. Long said that the utiliza tion of such offices as would have to be vacated for foyer purposes would hardly bea waste of space, even though they had been intended for other uses. The members of the party, with the exception of Mayor J . C. Hayne s, seemed much impressed with the feasibility of the plan. " I see nothing impracticable about it, " said John W . Thomas, "and I must say that it appeals to me as a worthy unde r taking. I don't see what reasonable ob - jection can be raised to the utilization of this vast space for such an admirable purpose as has been proposed. W e need such a hall and here is an opportunity to provide the city with such a meeting place at a fraction of the cost which a building especially constructed for that purpose would necessitate." Mayor Haines declined to accompany the delegation to St. Paul, saying that he was opposed to the plan, and that he could not bring himself to say a word in its behalf. 10,000 POUNDS OF GOLD Product of Alaskan Fields Shipped Thru Minneapolis to New York Yesterday.

Fo r purposes of, comparison the two plans are here given. The house amendment is to take the place of sections 1, 2, 3, 4 and 17 of article 9 of the constitution, The senate amend ment only replaces the first four sec tions with another set of four sections. The house amendment reads as. follows: "The power of taxation shall never be surrendered or suspended. , . ' "Taxes shall "be"'Uniform upon the same class, of subjects and shall be levied and collected under - general laws for public purposes.- .... "But property used exclusively for re - ligiousy educational, charitable, cemetery, -government or public ^purposes, shall be exempt from taxation, and there may be exempted from taxation personal property not .exceeding in value, three hundred dollars (300) for each household, indi vidual or head of a family, a's the legisla ture may determine." Restrictions. v . The Senate Plan. The senate amendments are as follows: "Section 1The power of taxation shall never be surrendered, suspended or con tracted away.

When no tax is levied for state purposes, the taxes levied for local purposes shall be upon valuation of the property within the several counties and the subdivisions r-thereof, which shall be equal and uniform thruout each county., Section 2The legislature may by gen eral or special law authorize municipal corporations to levy assessments for local improvements upon the property fronting upon such improvements, or upon the property benefited thereby, or both, wit h out regard to a cash valuation, and in such manner as the legislature may pre scribe. A tax upon the gross earnings of all corporations, copartnerships or persons holding or exercising a franchise granted by public authority may be levied and col lected in lieu of a tax upon such franchise or franchises, and all property of such cor poration, copartnership or person used exclusively in connection therewith and said gross earnings tax shall be appor tioned between the state, counties and municipalities where such franchise is ex - ercised, in the same manner as real es - tate taxes are apportioned. Provided, that nothing herein contained shall be construed to affect, modify or" repeal any laws or constitutional provision provid ing for the gross earnings of railroads. "Section 3. There may be levied and collected a transfer tax, not to exceed 10 per centum, upon the estates of decedents, above a fixed and specified sum , which tax may be graded or progressive, or both. There may be levied and collected a registry tax upon all real estate mort gages, which shall be in lieu of all other taxes on the debt secured by such mortt gage. There may be levied and collected a tax upon the income of all credits and personal property in'lieu of other taxes, which shall not exceed 10 per centum of such income, and there may be levied and and collected a tax upon the income of all persons, copartnerships or corporations above the sum of $2,000, not ai-ising from the income of property, which shall not exceed 4 per centum thereof. Credits and personal property shall not be subject to other taxation than the income or registry tax herein authorized while the law im - posing such income or registry tax shall be in force.
