Pennsylvania has bridled the news papers and Minneapolis has muzzled tho newsboys. Acting under Instructions from Chief of-Pblic Conroy, the police this morning informed news vendors tlfat all fog horn barking must cease here after. The result was that the usual newsboy chorus in the vicinity of-.'news- paper rowthe noisy declaration.which is a recognized feature of life in a big city was conspicuouslyl absent. The town seemed strangely quiet when the noon extras were Issued at a time when the boys are generally roaring the headlines to attract customers.. The. boys were there, but they looked rather" shame-faced,, as tho they were*'faillng to discharge their duty to-the public in not making their, usual contribution, to the dramatic side of city life. ' The boys, in: fact, were list less and when- they timidly ventured to solicit trade, they did so in an "I ask your pardon" manner which contrasted strong ly with the independence usually charac teristic of the street merchant. The patrolman who , is enforcing the order to-day at that corner says there was little objection to the boys' methods as long as they kept moving, but that when they worked in concert the noise was intolerable. Dan Doris of 621 First avenue S, former president of the newsboys' union of Mil waukee, who has sold papers in every big town between here and Buffalo, was dis gusted with the order and freely criti cized the administration for trying to "put de newsboys on de bum," as he put it. "I have sold papers in Buffalo, Cleve land, Pittsburg, Chicago, Milwaukeeall over," said Dan, "an" I ain't never seen nutt'ln' like it befoie.

Certain Members Seem Unable to Re sist Appeals for Special Assess- ., ment Rebates. Even while the worthy burghers of Min neapolis are trying to devise means for preventing further depletions of the per manent improvement revolving fund of the city, the aldermen are busy, opening holes for still further losses. Since last fallthat is, since the agitation was started by the Commercial club to dis cover what had become of the money, the council has authorized five annulments of special assessments for sewers. Each act was virtually the opening of a hole for draining the fund. The start was made on the' sewer which was constructed primarily for the benefit of the Minne sota Beet Sugar works at St. Louis park. In order to ease the taxes of the owners of property who were.opposed to the im provement, the total assessment over $1 per front foot was annulled or rebated. There were two resolutions in this trans action, one tpg-^jLake street to Irving ave*-. nue and one for Irving avenue from Lake street to Twenty-seventh. Then North Minneapolis^ came in for a nibble - and the assessment for - the sewer on Fifth street N from Eleventh to Plymouth avenues was reduced from $2.49 to $1.50. After the decision in the Pillsbury suit, in which the law was laid down that only the actual cost of sewers could be as sessed against the abutting property, the level rate of $1.50 placed against the property on Twenty-seventh street be tween Irving and Hennepin was raised to $1.90 per foot, the actual cost of the im provement. The council" upset this work and ordered a rebate of the assessment above $1.50. Next Northeast Minneapolis . had to have a slice and the taxpayers along Jef ferson ,street from Fourth avenue NE ,to Boardway were rejoiced that their special taxes for sewers had been reduced from $1.95, $2 and $2.10 per foot down to $1.50. Those who had paid their taxes were en titled to a cash rebate of the difference. There is much concern among certain city officials because of these acts of the city council and the aldermen have been advised against their course, the dangers being clearly pointed out. I t has made no difference to the aldermen and even when it is represented to them by re liable men that their action is wholly il legal they have turned deaf ears. Certain aldermen are always looking for opportunities to favor their constituents and there is nothing which pleases such constituents so much as to secure a rebate on taxes.. It is just like-, finding money. The frankest among the aldermen admit that they know that these practices are illegal, unjust to the remainder of the taxpayers .who do not obtain rebates and that they are detrimental to the revolving fund, but argue that if one part of the city receives such benefits the portion which they represent should also have a slice. City officials say that an injunction the payment of rebates can bemade obtained in almost every case if any one is interested enough to start proceedings. to charged.. way. to prison unless a for mal written complaint is lodged. This can'be done by any citizen, and the governor promises that any such complaint will be acted upon by the appointment of a commission to take evi dence. , , Any Sack Sujt In the House* $20.

At the meeting of the Norwegian Lutheran Free church, now ill progress here, the organization will attempt to solve the problem of reviving the spiritual life In congregations. All the spectators admit that the problem is a large one, not only within the Free church, but in other branches of the Lutheran church and other denominations as well.. Among those who participated in the discussion this morning were the" Rev. Messrs. O. M. Anderson, Ole Paulson, Blanchardvllle, Wis., O. Dahle, Aitkin, Minn. Paul Paul Winther, Minneapolis, Minn. H. J. Villesvig, Litchville, N. D. Mr. Paulson maintained that Augsburg had supplied *to the United church many of Its best preachers. The Free church is not envious, but on . the contrary is pleased to see the.Inspiring influences of Augsburg sent even outside of denomina tional lines. Mr. Paulson.-by the, way, Is one of the leading characters of the pres ent gathering. His home is at Blanchard ville, Wis., but he.has three other con gregations whiclx, despite his thirty-five years in the ministry and his advanced age, he looks after with the energy and activity of a young man. Thirty -years ago Mr. Paulson was the pastor of the Trinity Nbrwegian Lutheran church, the parent of six or seven churches and sev eral missions. Before that, again, he was a soldier, serving nearly :two years as second lieutenant of compaiily H, Ninth Minnesota, which fought Indians In 1862 and confederates for three years more. The Rev. K. J. Wang of Windom, Minn., led the morning devotions and song serv ice, which preceded the regular meeeting. President Chr. Ytrehus was in the chair. The secretary was instructed' to strike from the minutes the results of the bal lots for president anu simply to announce that an election was reached on the third ballot. It appears in the'-morning sessslon that women have not voting privileges in every congregation. When Chairman Rislov of the committee on credentials reported several women from the Rev. E. E. Gynlld's parish as entitled to seats in the present convention, the pastor arose and announced that women, were not per mitted to vote in his congregation. The Subject of a Long Discussion In the Convention. All of yesterday afternoon's session of the Norwegian Lutheran Free church con vention was taken up with a discussion on the best methods of spiritually invlgorat _ing the congregations, which was begun in the morning by the Rev. :S.

Yet friends of the university regret that the regents felt called upon to deny the petition of the numerous students, who asked that the art department be retained. E. C. Gale, president of the municipal art commission, said this morning: "The regents are the best judges, no doubt, of what the university can afford to do. I feel sure that they have acted with due regard to the interests of the institution." "I don't see " said Harington Beard, "ow our state university can expect to main tain a position as a first-class university, a seat of general learning, and not give in struction on a subject as important as art. But if the regents cannot see their way clear to maintain an art department adequately equipped, I agree that they would do well to abolish the department for the time being. Art study will prob ably be reinstated when the conditions are more favorable '.'I don't believe, tho, that the regents are. ignoring the importance of a rational art study. They have probably adjusted the curriculum to circumstances. It's one thing to feel that a certain course ought to be adopted and another thing to be able to adopt it." President and Cabinet to Consider Reciprocity With Canada. From The Journal Bureau, Room 45, Post Build ing, Washington, Washington, D. C , June 5It is under stood here that the Canadian reciprocity with special reference to the possibility of an early meeting of the joint high com mission, will be one of the subjects to engage the attention of the president and cabinet next week. While no direct word has been received, it Is believed that Senator Fairbanks, chairman of the American branch of the commission, is accompanying the presi dent on a special train from ndianapolis or will be here next week for the purpose of taking the question up with the presi dent and Secretary Hay, in view of re cent statements that prospects for a meeting of the commission were not re garded in this country as being good. Now that Fairbanks' presidential boom has been decently interred, it is expected that he will have more time to devote to reciprocity. If he comes to Washington he.will have a conference not only with President and Secretay Hay, but with former Secretary Foster who is also a member of the jooint high commission. These conferences, however, can accom plish nothing definite for this country is already committed to the making of a rec iprocity treaty. It takes two to make a bargain and at the present it is uncertain what Canada will want to do. The opin ion still prevails here inofficial circles that Canada will hold off until the fate of Sec retary Chamberlain's tariff policy can be forecasted with some degree of certainty. If Chamberlain fails, the pathway to an agreement between this country and Can ada will be smoother, but as long as Chamberlain holds the whip hand at home and see.ns determined to force the issue, it is believed Canada will do nothing. News this morning from Australia and New Zealand sugests to officials here that Chamberlain has been careful to work up tariff sentiment in the colonies before making his dramatic and sensational an nouncement in parliament. It would not surprise Washington if Canada, at the given signal should attempt also to fall into line, but this feeling, of course, is etntative and subject to numerous unfor seen contingencies. As a mater of fact, this country knows nothing officially re garding Canadas stand on the Chamber lain proposition, ts opinions-are based wholly on the seemingly evasive _ policy adopted by Canada in Its correspondence, with American officials regarding the time for the meeting of the joint high commission. ......

If these opponents succeed in forcing a test now, Chamber lain will be defeated, the Balfour cabinet will be compelled to retire, the empire will take strong ground against the tariff program, and then Canada and the other colonies will-be compelled for self pro tection to make the best trade agreements thy can with other grea powers.

'' THE GOVERNOR IS "BISSED West Virginia Chief Executive Calls His Hosts Tax Dodgers and Is Insulted. New York Sun Special Service. " r Parkersburg, W. Va., June 5.Governor A. B. White was hissed long, loud and re peatedly last night when responding to a toast at the banquet off the West Virginia Bankers' association. He was a guest of the association and had been placed upon the list of speakers, he said, without con sultation. It was nearly midnight when he arose, and in the course of his remarks referred to the bankers' association sending a com mittee to the legislature to oppose the pas sage of the tax commission's report, which, among other things, increased the tax on banks. His first reference brought forth hisses. The governor reddened and his voice trembled as he proceeded, and re ferred to the bankers of West Virginia as "tax-dodgers" because their organization had opposed what he considered a. fair tax law. At his mention oftax-dodgers" he was again hissed. He grew more, earnest in his remarks and - said this might not be the place to discuss the matter, but he had been placed on the list of speakers against his will and he proceeded to speak plain Anglo-Saxon. He said he was a director in several banks, and most of his income was from banks, but not one that he knew of paid the proper amount of. tax required to be paid under the present state law. For the third time he was hissed. He said he saw no reason why banks should avoid the payment of taxes, completed his speech and sat down amid cheers and hisses. - - THE FASHION Exclusive Skirt Storo for FREEDURINGCARNIVAL Jewctt Typewriters DEATH OF.A COUNTY OFFICIAL' William J.
