Registration of students at the univers ity summer school began this morning. Tho number registered during the day will probably exceed 400. The total regis tration before Wednesday night, after which applications will no longer be re ceived, will probably exceed 1,200. This will be several hundred more than the number enrolled last year. The women applicants outnumber the men in the proportion of 12 to 1. - . , All paVts of Minnesota are represented in the#crowd before the registrar's desk, and a considerable number of the stu dents 'will be from neighboring states. With few exceptions the summer classes will be composed of public school teach ers desirous of securing professional cer tificates of higher grade from the state examining board. Some teachers already provided with high grade certificates at tend the summer school in order to per fect a knowledge of improved pedagogical method^. In several cases high school pupils and university students have come to "catch up" on studies in which progress was not satisfactory in the winter months. A t the close of the summer school exa m inations will be held of teachers wishing to obtain state certificates of higher grade. A special feature of the summer school this year will be the library training de partment. This department, under the di rection of the Minnesota library commis sion, is planned to meet the needs of per sons in charge of the smaller public libraries that cannot afford trained libra rians. The course will be of particular value to the managers of school libraries. COMMITTEE PLEASED With Kishinef Relief's Big Boost by Journal Newsboys' Band. The work of The Journal Newsboys' band, in originating and carrying thru successfully a plan for a Kishinef suffer ers' benefit on a large scale, is appreciated by the Minneapolis Hebrew Kishinef Re lief committee and by the large body of citizens which the committee represents. The benefit resulted in adding $700 to the committee's fund and shows what the band boys, ably supported by the commit tee, were able to accomplish. The com mittee expresses its thanks to the band and The Journal- thru a letter ad dressed to the manager of The Jour nal, as follows: Lucian Swift, Manager Journal.

When the work of the staet board of Os teopathic examiners is finished, there will be close to 150 licensed osteopaths in the state. The board held its first session to day in the office of its secretary, Frank D. Parker of St. Pkul. U p to noon 148 had presented themselves for examination and paid the $20 "tee provided j law. About twenty-five who have been prac ticing under the name of "osteopatli" have not applied for licenses. They are known by the real practitioners to be fakirs, falsely trading on the name without proper knowledge of the science. They will now have to cease practicing, and this is said by the osteopaths to be the one great benefit derived from the new law. Regarding the statements of Dr. Andrews of Mankato, president of the state Medical association, Secretary Parker of the osteopathic board said to day: "Such utterances do not limit us they only harm the man weo who use them. The sentiment of hostility is not shared by the leading old school practitioners. W e send- them cases and they send cases to us. There is a field for all of us, and should be a friendly feeling." Nearly all the applicants for licenses have already practiced in the state. Only graduates of recognized schools can apply. They were submitted to-day to an oral examination, each member of the board conducting the work in some subject. The oral examination will take all day, and later in the week there .will be a written examination for those who have not practiced before. The board will hold semi-annual meet ings hereafter, and applicants who fail this tibe can have another trial next De cember. A s this is the first examination, the five members of the board had to submit t o day to be examined by each other. DULUT H STRIKE CAS E Judge Lochren Hears Request for Injunction Against Zenith City Longshoremen. Knudson & Eden Say Their Men Have Worked in Hourly Fear of Attack. Judge Lochren, of the federal circuit Court, heard arguments to-day at St. Paul on the application of Knudson & Eden of Duluth, for an injunction to restrain the Longshoremen's union of that city from intimidating, threatening or in any way interfering with their non-union workmen employed in loading and unloading freight at the six Northe rn Pacific docks. H. J. Grannis, on behalf of the com plainants, read affidavits from which it appear ed that the men working on the docks have for three months done their work in hourly fear of being assaulted or killed by the strikers. Numerous In stances were cited of non-union men who were kicked into insensibility, and of threa ts of .terrible punishment if the men did not join the' strikers, holding out for 40 cents an hour and no night w ork. Thep resent scale is 30 cents. C. E . * Adams, who followed for the union men, averred that the strikers had behaved in an exemplary manner. The union had, it appeared, instructed its members to refrain from picketing or in any manner interfering with the complain ants in the execution of their contract to load and unload the freight arriving at the six docks owned by the Northern Pa cific road. The union officers disclaimed any knowledge of acts of violence, and professed to be at a loss to account for the hostile demonstrations. SUICIDE OR ACCIDENT ? Death of Nels P. Liljengren Due to Wood Alcohol. Nels P . Liljengren, a cabinetmaker, died at the city hospital early yesterday morn ing, and It is believed that death was due to drinking wood alcohol. Whether the stuff was taken by mistake or with sui cidal intent cannot be known. Liljengren was found in his room at the Winona hotel. 219 Washington avenue S, early in the morning in an unconscious condition. H e was taken to the hospital and died not long afterward, having re covered consciousness only long enough to mutter something about wood alcohol.

Emmet Wallace, glass eater, horse trader, carriage painter and a lawyer on occasion, was arraigned in the municipal court this morning on a charge of vag rancy. The complainin gofficers said that he posed as a glass eater in order to get drinks from saloon crowds, getting the drinks first and eating the glass afterward, if he had time. Wallace has served four sentences at the work house. H e pleaded his own case with all the earnestness of an experi enced lawyer and was rewarded by having it dismissed, after he had promised to do his glass eating elsewhere. "I am a glass eater," he said, "a nd the best one in the business, but I don't eat glass for drinks. I do it simply to amuse the crowd and be socialable. If they offer me a drink to wash the glass out of my throat I am not the man who would In sult them by refusing." ANGLING FOR A FACTORY Secretary W. G. Nye on the Track of Another Industry. Correspondence between the public af fairs committee of the Commercial club, thru Secretary W . G. Nye, and the pro prietors of a felt shoe factory at Webster City, Iowa, whose plant was recently de stroyed by fire, is in progress. The firm seeks another site, and one in Minneap olis if available. Sites are plenty and it is believed that the company will need no encouragement other than subscription of stock, which It is believed Minneapolis capital will take. The company was capitalized at $100,- 000. The loss is reported at $70,000, with $36,000. This is a sample of the work that is being done continually by the publio af fairs committee, and which is netting re sults for the good of the commercial in terests of Minneapolis, now large and im portant, enough to have passed beyond the necessity for giving bonuses to new institutions.

WHEAWEDfRAlN :&f:r Slight Showers Yesterday Served Only to Whet the Plant's ' Appetite., *- Present Conditions Are Not Alarm- ':,,. ing, but They ArjNot r Ideal. ? ' While there were i-ains thruout the wheat districts yesterday, they were not as heavy as the grain growers in the dry spots of North Dakota and Montana were praying for. There is no cause for re newed anxiety but these dry districts need more than the mere sprinkle they had yesterday. One good rain, which, from the forecast issued this morning, seems likely of materialization to-morrow, will bring entire relief. Over Sunday heavy rains fell in Kansa s, Missouri, Illinois, Nebraska, Iowa and Texas. The promise now is for rains in eastern Michigan and Indiana to-night. Nebraska, Iowa and Missouri have a prospect of rain. Minnesota has the general indication of fair weath er to-night and Tuesday and North Dako ta and South Dakota much the same, but the outlook over all is for precipitation to come Tuesday, which is likely to vary from light showers to fairly heavy rains in various districts. The Red River valley is on the whole in better condition this morning than on Saturday, showers having wet down the top soil and freshened up vegetation in many places. Reports From Various Districts. A t 10:30 this morning the weather at seven important points w as reported as follows: HillsboroPartly cloudy, light northeast wind had three showers since Saturday. WinnipegCloudy and very cool looks like rain. Grand ForksClear and cool had light show ers last evening no rain at Larimore light Bhowers at Thompson. FargoClear and fine a light shower Satur day evening. CasseltonPartly cloudy and cool had two or three light showers. St. CloudClear and mild, with light west wind very light shower over Sifhday, not enough to be imoprtanf. ComstockClear and line no rain to a mount to anything sprinkling yesterday for about two minutes. * The following from Majswille Is a review of conditions to the close of last week: With the exception of one day, the weather the past week has been cool and breezy, the only gleam of light in the crop situation. Not * drop of rain hats fallen here in the past week. Local showers are reoprted south of Blanchard and In Steele county, but they passed this point. The early sown wheat and flax are holding out well, the spring plowed and the late sown grain looking poor. All grain, if not actually suffer ing, may be said to be badly in need of moisture. A soaking rain, would make prospects bright, but at the present writing there are no indications of the dry spell being broken. Comstock, Minn., reports that wheat in that section averages about 6 inches high and should be 12 inches high. The farmers say it has not grown much for two weeks. There w as a small sjhower yesterday which lasted two minutes. C. W. Pre'ston of Blanchard wired a Minneapolis firm: On my return home I find crops have made slight \progress during Ibe past ten days. Am surprised at the dryness and it Is necessary that we have rain right away. Two firms at Courteriay, N. D., have had men out covering the territory along some 300 miles of the Soo road. The Royal Elevator, company of Courtenay wired this mornihg as follows to Whal lon, Case & Co.: "Weather clear and cool, rain needed, but th wheat crop all right yet and very promising."

CAESAR'S PLAYS Mrs, Carrie Nation' Says She Ap- ' ' - i proves the Dramas He # ^ Wrote. , The Famous Kansan Here to Lec ture and Raise Funds for Her Cause. Mrs. Carrie A. Nation says she likea Julius Caesar's plays. Her dramatic taste also approves of Goethe's "Faust" and other serious dra mas, and she regards the treater as a means of teaching important moral les sons, but she believes that its'great pow ers are generally prostituted to low ends. All this from a talk of the Kansas re former to-day, when The Journal called on her at the home of Samuel Potts, 719 E Sixteenth street. Amusements are not hel din high es teem by this vigorous reformer, for she MRS. CARRIE NA^ON AND FAMOUS HATCHET. believes that the world is top serious to justify people in expending so much time, strength and treasure for the gratification of their own senses. "Life is too real, too earnest," she ex claimed, forcibly, for people to have time for play, and besides they don't need it that's all imagination. They can get re laxation in ways that are not self in dulgence. That is what is the matter with the 400, they have nothing better to think about than how to amuse them selves. There is where I find the greatest amount of corruption, for they have the means and the opportunity to indulge aH of their desirese. The evil tendencies are present in every one of us. and all that is necessary in order to discover the evil humanity is to unbridle it, and that is what wealth and leisufe does for a man. "There is always something needing re form both in the individual and in hu manity enmasse and the only hope for the world is the maintenance of a good crop of reformers who will keep the pool troubled. You know I'm a believer in ag itation." Mrs. Nation arrived 1 nMinneapolis this morning. She will lecture Wednesday evening at the Y. M. C. A. hall.

In Saturday's issue of The Journal, under the head of "Facts for Tawney," Professor Webster of the East Side High school . bitterly assailed Congressman Tawney, but wisely refrained from at tempting to reply to the congressman's arguments. All persons who are acquainted with the manner in which the candidates for the national academies are selected in this state,'know that they are chosen by sub mitting them to a competitive examina tion. The ranking in this examination and not family prominence gives the young men the candidacy. Professor Webster 's statement will hardly be borne out by facts.

In fact, Winona is above the average of the high schools of our country. The young men who failed at St. Paul were presented this past week with diplomas. The fact that they could not pass rigid examinations in the elementary branches discloses to us the deplorable fact that our graduates are lacking in the studies which are the foundation of all education. The students receive diplomas but know at Commission of Appraisers. .

The members are James I. Best, David P. Jones and Frank Slocum. The professor's slanderous attack on Mr. Tawney is inconsistent, unwarrant ed and false. W e need more men like Mr. Taw ney. If his appointments have been par tial, then we need more partiality and favoritism. H e has appointed, in his eleven years of official life, a. list of young men which would do honor to any state.

An examination of the grad uating theses at Winona for a number of classes back would show that the grad uates cannot read correctly or write, spell or express the English language in a man ner creditable to themselves, their city, their state and their instructors. They are plagiarists in ideas as well as in words not only lacking in original thought but also in original expression. Winona is like the other high schools in that it is no worse. The remedy to this situation lies in ad ding to the courses a review of the ele mentary branches, In adding physiology to the present courses and in requiring a standing of 90 per cent in the rudimen tary studies to admit to the high school. W e are sadly in need of more practical education. Not oniy for a business life, but for a university career more knowl edge is needed of the rudimentary branch es. To me a knowledge of the human body is more valuable in after life than a foundation in mathematic s, and therefore I argue, physiology should be required, if needs be, at the expense of some other subject. Professor Webster boasts of the excel lence of his graduates who have succeeded in entering Annapolis. The Whitlocks and others from Winona have maintained at West Point aJid Annapolis a reputation which East Side can't aspire to. But the professor also tells of the fact that boys not only in Winona, but in the other cities as well, can graduate merely from parental Influence, after having shirked their lessons aind clogged the school work for four years or longer. If we had less principals of the prevalent type and more like Professor Bartlett of Winona there would not be any occur rences to warrant assertions like the fore going statement. I t is a disgraceful state of affairs. The high schools are getting to be playgrounds for the rich. Rich boys attend because they have nothing else to do they are indolent, annoy the teachers, detract from their power and influence, take the teachers' time and harass, ridi cule and prevent the scholars who are there for business from getting their de served opportunities and attentions. v TRY, AND IS OPEN TO ALL. ^^^ W.
