evening sessions Friday or Saturday, returning
on the 10:45 p. m. train. Still others have ar
ranged for tents and cots, especially for Satur
day and Sunday nights. The management of the
convention is in the hands of C. R. Ellis, who is
on the grounds this week, preparing for the as

Interesting Refrigerator Experiments Con
ducted by H. S. Cleveland.
Some interesting refrigerator experi
ments have been made during the
past two weeks by H. S. Cleveland at his
big hardware store, 506 and 507 Washing
ton avenue S. The celebrated Herrick
Sanitary refrigerator was used in the ex
periments and the results have astonished
many householders, butchers, grocers and
others interested in up-to-date refrigera
tors. The Herrick refrigerator differs
from the old style "ice-box" in that It has
a side-icer instead of the awkward, space
taking top receptacle. The interior con
sists entirely of spruce wood, packed with
mineral wool, instead of the old-fashioned
zinc. The arrangement is such that the
cold air current goes in one general direc
tion and thus does not produce the deadly
moistures so prevalent in the old style
refrigerators. The air in the Herrick is
always dry. To prove this Mr. Cleveland
placed matches on one of the shelves sev
eral weeks ago. To-day these same
matches are dryer than they were when
they were placed in the box. Wet paper
placed on the shelves will burn like tind
er at the end of Ave hours. Fruit, onions,
milk and butter were placed in the refrig
erator and at the end of twenty-four
hours there was no sign of taint. Fruit
and vegetables will absolutely not spoil.
They will in time dry up crisp, but they
will not rot. Mr. Cleveland proved con
clusively that the Herrick was a great
saver of ice.
This splendid scientific and sanitary re
frigerator is meeting- with splendid pat
ronage and will do much for healthful san
itation and household economy. The Her
rick is as reasonable in price as any re
frigerator on the market.

Celebration on White Earth ReservationA Vi* of the "Presentation" Dance, Photographed by Journal
Staff Photographer.
The festivities at White Earth Indiai*
agency incident to the annual celebration
that have occupied the attention of the
Ojibways and their guests, the Sioux, for
two days and also interested several hun
dred white spectators, are over. The In
dians have washed off the paint, pulled

Price To-day Touched $1.05, the
Lowest Point Known for
Four Years.
Grain Man Says the Price Indicates
a Too Heavy Discount of
Flax sold to-day in the cash grain mar
ket at the Minneapolis Chamber of Com
merce at $1.05 a bushel:the lowest price
known here in almost four years. This
represents a drop of about 11 cents in the
past fortnight and has revived the old talk
that flax is to go under a dollar a bushel
this year. This would be a matter of the
greatest importance to the farmer and
to the northwest as a whole. Many in the
grain trade think that the decline will
be checked, as it was in January last,
when flax broke down and threattned to
go below a dollar.
Every additional dip in price from now
on will mean a slice off the total income
of the northwest from its agricultural
output, and will mean much to the dis
tricts where flax is raised very largely.
Thru 1900, 1901 and up to September
1902, cash flax in Minneapolis never sold
below $1.35, and there were large sales
this period to local linseed oil mills
as high as $1.80 and $1.85, the record
price being $1.87^, paid here by an ex
porter on July 16, 1901. These were the
halcyon days, when the new settler, go
ing upon wild land, broke it up and put
it all in flax, and on a fair yield per acre
realized enough on the one crop to pay
for his land. There were no long-time
mortgages hanging over new farmers then.
In September, 1899, flax sold here at
87%@90c. That was the year so much
of the flax was late in maturing, and
while it was still in a tender stage was
heavily damaged by frosts. Flax took
on a range above the dollar mark, and
has held it ever since, and in the opinion
of many grain men, will continue to hold
it, notwithstanding the fact that the mar
ket is now at so low a point.
This year opened with flax around $1.20
and there was a break from this point to
$1.09. Then came the early reports of
a largely decreased acreage this season,
and a sharp advance in price followed.
By May 23 the local market was holding
around $1.16%, and since then the ten
dency has been downward very steadily.
It was found that thru Minnesota and
North Dakota, especially along the Soo
road, much more flax had been put in
than was originally indicated, while the
condition of the growing plants up to
this time is pronounced by experts to be
higher than ever before seen on a corre
sponding date. There is the possibility,
therefore, of a large yield, even on an
acreage now generally admitted to be 15
per cent under last year.
"Flax is worth more than $1.05," said
a grain man this morning. "It hurts the
commission men to have it decline so
and discourages farmers from planting it.
Nothing justifies the present low figure
except the good outlook for the crop. But
flax is a tender plant, very susceptible
to frost damage, and enough of it is late
this year to make it worth watching. We
have not got the crop yet, but the price
is down to a level based on the assump
tion that we are going to get it all. I con
sider the present price as discounting the
future too heavily, and while, of course,
it is all uncertain, yet I am no 90-cent
flax man by any means. I do not think it
will go under $1, and for the farmers'
sake, hope it will not."
How the Dayton Dry Goods Company Is.
Attracting Attention.
For the last ten days the interest of
Journal readers has been awakened by a
procession pictured on the third page.
Last week Monday a blank space three
inches across the top of that page at
tracted the eye. But it was not altogeth
er vacant, for at the right end part the
figure of a chic young woman was shown
entering the space. Tuesday she was
followed by more figures, and Wednesday
still more were added. Still there was
nothing to tell of the what, where and
when of it. Thursday the procession was
farther augmented.' The lead of the
smartly dressed young woman was eager
ly watched. Friday and Saturday the
throng of fashionably gowned women and
children,' with a scattering of men in
creased farther. Tet not a word as to
their destination. .
But Monday came the announcement
that the parade was headed for the Inven
tory Sale of the Dayton (formerly Good
fellow) Dry Goods company. More
figures were added, however, all this week
and the complete drawing, with the chic
young woman arrived at her destinatftra
end details of the three days' sale, ap
pears . on pages 8 and 9.
The most interesting feature of the
celebration was the dancing. Under the
spell of the crude music evoked from
huge drums in the center of the dancing
circle, all of the old red men seemed to
forget that they were not masters of the
prairies now as they were in the long ago,
when they and their tribesmen claimed
all the land north, east, west and south
within a four days' journey. They
entered into the spirit of the dance
The Trouble Was His Identity Was
Not Known Until He Was -
Word Gome's from Waseca, Minn., that
"Billy Edwards," the big-mitter, Who has
operated under various disguises thruout
the northwest, and who played a star role
in the first scenes of the Minneapolis
municipal clean-up, is still at his old trade
and as foxy as ever. According to the
report, he worked a short-change game
on an innocent member of the Waseca
community, and as a result was sent to
jail for ten days.
After he had been released and had
made a good get-away, the authorities
learned that they had held the famous
Billy Edwards, who is badly wanted in
Duluth for an offense similar to that for
which his partner, "Cheerful Charlie"

the fact that he has many times promised

he- would lead a different life, is still en
gaged in getting something for nothing

The annual entertainment of the Im
maculate Conception school was given
yesterday at the Bijou theater. The pro
gram consisted of songs, marches and tab
leaux, ending with, a pretty operetta.
More than 100 children participated. One
of the most attractive numbers was en
titlted "Apple Blossoms," in which ap
peared thirty little girls in fluffy pink
dresses and carrying apple blosoms.
Groups of twenty or more boys, arrayed
as cooks, huntsmen and shepherd*,' con
tributed vocal numbers, and still other
girls represented water nymphs and floral
maidens. Great enthusiasm was aroused
by the patriotic drill of the boys, each
carrying the national emblem. Not least
on the program was. the delightful singing
of Catherine "Vincent, who sang "Water
Cresses." Interesting recitations were
given by Miss G. Shesgreen and Alber
Among those who took part in the op
eretta, "Laila," were Miss Frances Vin

Ideas Suggested Informally at a
Meeting of the New Commission
Last Evening.
Several subjects for charter legislation
were discussed informally before the new
charter commission last evening. Nearly
a score of city officials were present, and
most of them contributed ideas on' the
various questions.
Most attention was given to civil serv
ice and special municipal elections. As
sistant Chief Michael Hanley and Fire
Marshal C. W. Ringer spoke for civil serv
ive in the fire department. Mayor Haynes
thought it should be made general in all
city departments, and at least in the po
lice department. Alderman Sam E. Adams
also thought that if civil service was
adopted, it should be made general. Civil
service would keep firemen and police
men out of politics, where they had no
business to interfere, argued Alderman
G. A. Westphal.
Separate city elections were urged by
Mayor Haynes, Alderman Westphal and
Alderman D. P. Jones, who embodied his
ideas in a written communication. Al
derman Adams doubted the advisability
of separate elections, as did Alderman
Harry G. McLaskey.
It was suggested by several that it was
not so much a question of charter at the
present time as it was t c get the city
on a home-rule basis, so that the legisla
ture could be prevented from interfering
in various ways, and particularly in pav
ing the way for big bond issues. Alder
men Jones, McLaskey and A. E. Merrill
In particular emphasized the necessity of
a home-rule form of government.
Aldermen Merrill, C. W. Clark and
Westphal were of the opinion that one
alderman from each ward would be suf
ficient, but he should receive a larger
salary than was allowed at present.
P. M. Hall, health commissioner, ad
dressed the charter commission at some
length on having a street-cleaning de
partment which should have complete
charge of this important work.
The inequality of tax assessments fur
nished food for remarks by Andrew Rin
ker, city engineer, and Alderman Claus
Mumm. The former also spoke in favor
of civil service, which had been in prac
tical operation in the city engineer's de
partment for twenty years. Alderman
Mumm declared that he did not find any
thing particularly meritorious in the
"home rule" idea, and- it was a foreign
one anyway.
The general public is invited to attend
the next meeting at the cTty hall next
Tuesday evening.
J. Carter, a Minneapolis Boy, Charged

J. Carter, a bell boy at the Ryan Hotel, St.
Paul, was arrested last night on a charge of
robbery in the hotel. Carter is a Minneapolis
boy and went to the Ryan to work only nine
days ago. A gold watch was missed last Fri
day and suspicion attached to him. He se
cured a key to a room while the occupants were
in the parlors of the hotel. Going to the room
he unlocked the door and when detected he
