A W Eaton, who last winter worked a
confidence game on Minneapolis physi
cians, and was sent to the workhouse,
was released a few days ago and yester
day was trying a similar game on persons
having rooms for rent near Nicollet ave
nue and Fifteenth street. Having en
gaged a room of a landlady, he would ask
for a loan of $2 until he could go to the
bank He tried the game at the home of
Detective Tom Gallagher, Gallagher being
away. The detective's mother was sus
picious and tiled to detain him, but Eaton
scented danger and left. He is still at
large Last year his game was to ask
a physician to call at a certain number
and then to borrow ?2 to buy medicine and
food for the patient Needless to say, the
physician never found the address given

Reason Why Alderman Van Nest Op

'^"Nobody can have my vote for any inno
U "vation of that kind," declared Mr Van
J^Nest this morning. "It's a democratic

Wisconsin Central Slashes Chicago
Rate to $8Other lines
Will Heet It.
Cut Hade in Retaliation for Rate
- Manipulations and Tinie
Eight dollars to Chicago* is the sensa
tional announcement made to-day by the
Wisconsin Central railroad. A circular
just issued by James C. Pond, general
passenger agent announces this heavy re
duction In the Chicago rate, effective June
20, and it is the intention of the Wiscon
sin Central to make this a permanent
rate. The rate is being met by the other'
lines as fast as they can issue circulars
and file notice.
"The regular rate maintained for years
by all the Chicago lines has been $11.50.
It is believed that the Wisconsin Cen
tral's action was prompted primarily by
rate manipulations of other roads in con
nection with recent conventions. In ad
dition to this, however, the time reduc
tions by the so-called strong lines to Chi
cago have undoubtedly operated to cause
the Wisconsin Central to take advantage
of a weapon which it has always held.
While the former time schedule to Chi
cago was effective, the rate was main
tained, but with the introduction of the
twelve-hour service and additional lim
ited trains by the strong li*3S, the reduc
tion of rate by the other lines seemed
inevitable and the blow has now fallen.
The Wisconsin Central is going at the
matter in a systematic, consistent way,
and in addition to the $8 rate to Chicago,
announces other heavy reductions on other
parts of the system. The rate from Chi
cago to Duluth and West Superior will be
cut from $13 55 to $12 SO, and the $8 rate
to and from the twin cities is made to
apply to and from Milwaukee or Manito
woc as well.
So far as known, there has been no de
mand by the Wisconsin Central on any
other road that the twelve hour schedule
be abandoned, but, inasmuch as the strong
lines will naturally Idse more money by the
low rate, it Is not improbable that contin
uation of the rate war will result in some
sort of an agreement before long.
Another factor in the situation which
must be considered is the Soo line. W.
R. Callaway, general passenger agent of
that line, recently took cognizance of rate
manipulations by the Chicago lines in
such way that the eastern association
roads of those roads were brought to their
milk in short order and refused to honor
the tickets sold below tariff by their west
ern connections. Now that an open re
duction takes the place of a quiet manip
ulation, Mr. Callaway will undoubtedly
feel that he is warranted in more drastic
measures than ever and the slaughter of
rates will undoubtedly be made effective
in much broader territory than that served
by the twin cities Chicago lines.
As things are at present, prospects are
decidedly bright for the thrifty individual
who wishes to take a summer vacation
trip at the minimum expense.

Secured Creditors May Participate in
Final Distribution of the '
Orders Made To-day Mark
1 End of Months of
i Secured creditors of the Northwestern
Guaranty Loan company, insolvent, will
by order of the judges of the Fourth ju
dicial district, be allowed to participate
in the final distribution of the estate, es
timated at about $125,000, provided they
make a satisfactory showing by July 18,
as to the money received from collaterals.
The accounts for services rendered of
$17,000 due the Minneapolis Trust com
pany, as receiver and of $2,600 due W. B.
Dodge, Rome G. Brown and Charles S.
Alberts, as attorneys for the receiver, are
allowed and ordered paid.
Two orders of this import were made by
the judges of the district bench this morn
ing. The ruling is considered a very im
portant one, as it allows $2,000,000 worth
of claims an opportunity to come in on the
final distribution of the trust funds.
The decision is upon an order issued on
Dec 11, 1902, directing secured creditors
from all over the country to show why
they Bhould not be debarred from further
participation in the settlement on aceount
of their failure to obey previous orders of
court. The effect of the new order is to
relieve all these creditors from all former
orders except in so far as specified in
these orders. They are required to make
a satisfactory showing by July 8 as to all
money received from collaterals and upon
failure to make said showing they' will
at that time be barred from participation.
In addition, it is ordered that the re
ceiver file a schedule by September 5,
1903, giving a list of creditors and amount
of claims, this schedule to be a basis for
the final distribution Provision is also
made for filing and hearing objections and
for fixing the basis of distribution and
provision is further made for the final
distribution and the closing up of the es
tate, which, under this order, will take
place some time next October, after an
existence of over eight years.

a sharp lookout for any attempted assault
and to report the same at headquarters.
If necessary a special detail of officers will

One of the peddlers, J Rattenberg, said
that fully a hundred boys and young men
gathered in a body yesterday afternoon
and went in search of ^he Hebrews. As
he was coming alohg Cedar avenue his
horse was stopped by the crowd, which
made all sorts of threats against him. The
gang broke up at the sight of an ap

minutes later and began to unhitch his

man was severely bruised with stones

A large man with a small cigarette
stirred up a tremendous commotion at the
Chamber qf Commerce this morning.
From the tenth floor where he recUned
at ease with feet cocked up on the sill
of an open window, he tossed his cigarette
stump out into the street The wind car
ried it back along the side of the build
ing and deposited it upon an awning
over the window of the office of Logan
& Bryan on the fourth floor Sharp
Stephens, the manager, smelled some
thing like a rag burning and remarked
to a visitor who sniffed the air and asked
what it might be, that it was only the
private wire operator enjoying one of his
customary Mrs Wiggs perfectos
"Villainous tobacco," said the visitor
"I believe I'll quit using the weed alto
gether "
Just then the wind blew in a thin sheet
of flame and there was panic in a moment.
One rushed for the safe and locked it,
one darted for the nearest fire escape,
another steered for the elevator shaft,
while the remainder of the office force
came on the exchange floor and ran
Meanwhile some on in the office of C.

of hoof beats and panting engines, black
smoke wreaths ascended from every
neighboring corner, while an army of
sturdy firemen came up by the fire es
capes and the elevators and filled the
corridors, all armed cap-a-pie and pre
pared to tear the lining out of the build
ing. It was a quick response and very
creditable to the department. Meanwhile

Harlan F. Eoberts Argues That Even
Peaceable Intimidation Is Not '
"Look out for *Fourtb-of-July lock-
jaw,' " says Health Commissioner P. M.
Hall. "These early celebrations in antic
ipation of the Fourth are already claiming
their victims. I notice from the Chica
go health reports that seven boys have
recently died from tetanus caused by toy
pistols or firearms. Children should not
be allowed to play wit h firearms and cer
tainly the toy pistol, should be abolished,
by ordinance if parental authority is not
"Death from lockjaw is most agonizing
and parents should use all precautions to
keep this danger from their offspring.
Lockjaw or tetanus is caused by a bacil
lus or germ found in large quantities in
street dirt and particularly around barns.
This germ when lodged in the human body
where the ajo4 excluded becomes very
active and produces one of the most viru
lent of poisons, which b the direct cause
of tetanus
"Wounds caused by ^percussion caps,
toy pistols and the like should be kept
open and thoroly cleansed. Properly all
wounds of that character should be treat
ed by physicians even tho the injuries
may seem insignificant."
Dr. Hall cites an article in the current
number of the Journal of the American
Medical associations which sounds a note
of warning to physicians but which should
also interest the parents of boys. The
article says.
"We should not forget that most of
these deaths are preventable if the blank
cartridge wounds are properly treated as
soon as thev are received. It is a sad
fact that the greatest number- of cases of
Fourth-of-July tetanus occur in boys who
have gone to some physician, not infre
quently in a dispensary, who, Instead of
giving the wound the thoro treatment that
it deserves, has superficially cleaned and
dressed it. The responsibility here lies
with the physician who first sees the
wound. A thoro surgical treatment of
blank cartridge wounds, supplemented by
prophylactic injection' of tetanus antitoxin
when possible, would ^save many lives
every year."
Beyond what limits labor combinations
cannot go in opposing unorganized labor
is one of the most difficult problems of the
day. Judge Cray is now in the nfidst of
an argument upon this question which in

the "unfair list." The decision rendered
will establish a precedent which will be
used in future contests of a similar na
Harlan P. Roberts, attorney for the elec
trical companies who are seeking to secure
a permanent injunction against the big
labor organization preventing an inter
ference with their business, has been ar
guing his side of the question for a day
and a half now, but he expects to conclude
this afternoon, when Robert Kolliner will
take the floor for the defendant.
Mr. Roberts first presented affidavits
tending to show that there had been a
conspiracy entered into by the defendants
to destroy the business of plaintiffs. Fol
lowing the presentation of facts he ad
dressed himself to the law of the case.
His researches and his offers of author
ities include decisions, cases and opinions
from nearly every state m the Union, as
well as many of English origin. His con
tention is that there is no need of any
violence or malice to involve an action
able wrong, that peaceable intimidation
is as illegal as strikes and riots and to
support this position he addresses a formi
dable mass of authorities.
The defense, however, do not appear to
be dismayed and intimate that they have
a few authorities of their own which
will be produced in due time.

Deputy Sheriffs Langum, Johnson and
Cousineau have not yet received their
May salaries and it appears now that
they will have to wait for It some time
yet. The county commissioners yester
day denied Chief Deputy Arthur Jones'
petition asking that $2,233.36 of the de
linquent tax fund be appropriated for
salaries. This was done in spite of Judge
Pond's ruling that $8,000 in the county
treasury was available therefor and a writ
of mandamus will now be asked for to
compel the county commissioners to make
this appropriation
The denial of the sheriff's petition was
accompanied by an opinion by Assistant
County Attorney C. L. Smith that owing
to the strictness of the laws It seemed
inadvisable to appropriate the money
asked for. He state that of the $8,000 a
part had to be used for penalties and in
terest while another considerable portion
was used for refundments.
Mr. Jones says^ this morning that he is
not discouraged in the least but hopes to
secure the salaries in the near future.
He says that the interest, penalties and
refundments will amount to only a small
portion of the $8,000 and that figuring as
high as possible there were be $5,000 re
maining out of which the sheriff's em
ployes ask only $2,233 36. A writ*of al
ternative mandamus against the county
commissioners will be secured to-day

Barkeeper's Anxious Moments Be
cause of Joke of P. H. Smith
of West Superior.
Thought the Real Estate Man Was
the King of Confidence
P. H. Smith, the West Superior real
estate man, who Is at the West hotel, had
the unpleasant experience at Schiek's res
taurant the other day of being mistaken
for a confidence manthe worst in the
United States.
Mr. Smith is somewhat of a joker him
self. Because fate tried to conceal him
by naming him Smith, he is not averse
occasionally to making enough of a stir to
be heard. The spirit moved him on this
particular occasion. When the waiter
suggested, while Mr. Smith was waiting
for his dinner, that the man behind the
bar was gullible enough to believe that the
former was a confidence man, Smith said,
"I'm in, go ahead."
The next moment one of the waiters
had quietly pointed Smith out to the "bar-
keep," whose eyes were bulging with in
"Keep your eye on him," said the wait
er, "or he'll do you. Tell you what, that
fellow can actually stand in front of this
bar, if he's a mind to, with his sleight of
hand work, and get to every cent in the
cash register. He carries a device in his
cuffs which he can work like a flash
which will make the 'dip' and 'cop the
coin,' while you're wondering if he'll come
again. Ten to one you'd never know what
happened "
Then Mr. Smith arose to his full height
of something^ over six feet, and advanced
upon the drink-mixer, who grabbed a be
laying pin to 'be ready at a moment's
"On guard," said Smith, fixing his hyp
notic eye upon the man behind the apron.
"I'll have a little lithia "
Then he elevated his wrists in signifi
cant fashion.
"No you don't," returned the bartender
threateningly. "I'm onto you You're
the biggest con man in the coutnry, you
make one move for thai coin and I'll
have you pinched "
Detective Jim Howard came in at that
moment He knew Smith well and took
in the situation at a glance
"You sit down over here," he said,
gruffly, laying a heavy hand on Smith's
shoulder, "you're too near that bar I
know you "
The bartender still believes that a bold,
sleight-o'-hand daylight robbery was nar
rowly averted and has had an eye single
for cuffs since.
Boston Police Commissioner Causes'
the Arrest of 259 Persons Whose
Breath Smelled of Liquor.
New York Sun Special Service.
Boston, June 16 Judge Ely, in the mu
nicipal court, made practically a general
jail delivery yesterday of the men who
had been arrested by the police Saturday
night and Sunday, charged with drunken
ness. There were in all 259 men and 21
women awaiting trial. Of this number,
two or three were fined and a score were
given terms of imprisonment. A few were
placed on probation and some cases were
continued, "in order that the rum should
be soaked out of the prisoners." The
rest were released
The arrests were made at the instance
of Judge Emmons, the new chairman of
the board of police, who ruled that any
man who was "not his normal self, and
whose, breath smelt of liquor," was in
toxicated, should be arrested..
The result of this order was that Sat
urday and Sunday the police stations and
city prison were overcrowded with pris
oners AH Boston is excited over the ar
rests, and in not a few cases men of good
repute who were among the unfortunates,
declare that their arrests were outrageous.

Formerly Outspoken Against Kish
inef Christians He Now Says .
the Jews Were to Blame. \
St Petersburg, June 16 Father John
of Cronstadt, whose fiery condemnation
of the KIshinef massacre was published
in the St Petersburg liberal newspapers,
has published the following in the anti
Semitic Quamia, the new organ in St.
"To my beloved Christian brethren m
Christ of Kishinef. From the newspaper
accounts succeeding the first published re
ports concerning the iKshinef catastrophe,
I have concluded that the Jews themselves
were the cause of the recent disorders,
that it was the Christians who suffered in
the end and that the Jews have been
doubly repaid for their losses and injuries
by their own brethren and others.
"I know this from private letters also,
which I ha\e received from people who
lived a long time in Kishinef, who are well
acquainted with affairs there, and who are
most trustworthy. Therefore, I say to tha
Kishinef Christians, to forgive the re
proach on account of the horrors that
were committed, which I cast upon you
From letters of eye-witnesses I am con
vinced now that one cannot lay all the
blame upon the Christians, who were pro
voked to the disorders by the Jews and
that the Jews were mainly responsible for
the catastrophe " ^
N o Russian newspaper of any weight,
except the Novoe Vremya has attempted
to palliate the massacre or lay the blama
on the Jews.
Law Does Not Offer Inducements for
Teachers to Take Elemen- ij|
s tary Course.
- j
Increasing Demand Noted for Men
as Principals, but Supply *-t:
Is Poor,
The annual meteting of the state normal
school board, held at the capltol to-day,
developed some interesting educational
discussion. The presidents of the five
schools presented reports, all of which
were full of meat. The last one, by
President Millspaugh of Winona, called
attention to the Estate law, which dis
criminates against graduates of th
normal schools. It provides that princi
pals of graded and semi-graded schools
must be graduates of the advanced
course In the normal schools, or must hold
a professional or first grade certificate.
The high school graduate who goes right
to teaching can get a first grade cer
tificate in a year, but the graduate of an
elementary course to a normal school,
which takes much longer, must pass a
rigid examination and take a year of
teaching before being eligible.
State Superintendent Olsen said that
the state high school board in practice did
not permit holders of Srst grade cer
tificates only to hold such positions in
schools receiving state aid. However,
the law so reads This discussion gave
added force to a suggestion in the annual
address of C. A. Morney, president of th
board, that the different educational
boards and authorities of the state should
hold a conference for the purpose of get
ting together.
Mr. Morey was unanimously re-elected
as president of the board.
Dr. Millspaugh declared his belief that
there was a growing tendency to securA
more men teachers for executive posi
tions in the schools. J. L. Washburne,
the Duluth member of the board, who is
also a member of the Du'.uth school
board, said that their board desired men
for principals of the grade schools, but
had none at present. They were not able
to get as high an order of n telligenc
among the men applicants.
Can't Supply Rural School Demand.
The general verdict was that the de
mand for teachers far exceeded the sup
ply. President Weld of the Moorhead
school said they had applications for forty
teachers for one county and could only
furnish Six. Rural schools were obliged
to employ untrained teachers, and school
boards had written him for teachers, ask
ing only that the applicant be able to
read and write the English langtaga.
The presidents all agreed that restoration
of the elementary course would bring
more students, and enable them to supoly
'the rural school demand to some extent,
but changed commercial conditions ma&a
a scarcity of men teachers inevitable!
Dr. Millspaugh reported that the uni
versity had taken away some of the
former Minneapolis attendance at th
Winona school, on account of the new
rule of the Minneapolis school board that
normal graduates must have a year of
graded school experience elsewhere be
fore being eligible for the local schools.
The board adopted a resolution by S G.
Comstock, providing that the normal
school presidents may hereafter attend
the N E A conventions at state ex

Jackson, Ky, June 16.Captain Ewen
