Are Grieved Because
Police Won't Let Them
. Yell.
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. I'll have to git
out of town if I can't hand 'em de talk
so's I can be heard across- de street.
That's the way I sell paples. You've
got to. boost, and when a man sees de
finished article handling uxtries, he likes
to do business wid him. People likes
spirit in a newsboy, an* if you know how
to tout as tho you wasn't goin' to die of
consumption the next minute, there's
where* you make your hit. They like a
strong boy what works at it. It makes
'em think dey's sumpin' doin*. ' What's
de use of tryin' to make a jay town out
of a big city, anyhow?"
Then Doris went quiet after the noon
crowd. *
Ozzie Hawkins, colored, 325 Fifth ave
nue S, took the same view of the situa
tion and expressed his unqualified disap
proval of the order.
"It's de guy wid the loud talk wot sells
out," said he.

G. D. Warner of the New York Prod
uce Exchange was a.visitor at the Cham
ber of Commerce to-day, having stopped
oft en route from San Francisco to New
York, to see the big Minneapolis flour
mills and take in the June fair. "I came
in over the Canadian Pacific," said Mi*.
Warner, "and was astonished at the evi
dence of growth since I went over, the
same ground some six or seven years
ago. I think the Canadian Northwest has
a wonderful future if the business men
can only keep siu . fellows as Barr from
coming over with any more of the 'arti
sans' from dear old England. Why, I
heard about one of them who came into
a store at Moose Jaw and asked for some
seed bran. The clerk in the store could
understand, and the Barr colonist
finally made it clear that lie wanted to
plant seed bran to raise this new cereal
breakfast food that he had heard about,
and when the clerk finally got it thru
his head what was wanted three mien
had to hold him to prevent Mm from kill
ing the man. Of course, I can't vouch
for this story, but I afterward met one
of the Barr party in Winnipeg and from
his appearance and general line-up, -I
should say the story might easily be true."

How the City Council Continues to
Puncture the Permanent Im
provement Fund.
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

Mr. Paulson maintained that Augsburg

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

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

Many comments were, called forth by
the exceptionally unreliable service of the
new company, altho the officers feel con
fident that, after the .plant is in perfect
running order, the results will be much
worse. Blanks in close imitation of regu
lartelegraph forms-are used, and the man
who receives a message is apt to pay the
charges before he realizes that he has
been 'touched" by the artful pushers of
the carnival. Among the Macaronlgrams

Local protests against the abolition of
the art uepartment at the university are
held back because the regents say re
trenchment was necessary. 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

with special reference to the possibility of

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. ......

Britain think the chances are four out
of five against Chamberlain, and they
would not be surprised if the opponents to
his scheme should crowd the issue a"nd
secure a vote in parliament at an early
day, thus defeating Chamberlain's plan: to
have the matter discussed in England for
a year and a half prior to reaching a vote
before the people. 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. Suefc an
oucome would reopen the door to reciproc
ity and make Canada as anxious for.a
treaty as United States now seems to be.
All these questions will be gone over
next week by the' president/ Sesretary Hay
and Senator Fairbanks, should the latter,
as expected, come to Washington.

West Virginia Chief Executive Calls
His Hosts Tax Dodgers and Is
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
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
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. - -
