have had good reason for congratulation
that we had proceeded along conservative
lines There was no means of determin

were made what the crop and financial
conditions of the state would be In the
following two years, 1894 and 1895, the
tax levied was $715 951, and the taxes col
lected were only $608 541 The executive
veto was used to insure our keeping with
in our revenue and I believe the people
of the state will approve what was done

Duluth, Minn , Aug 27 An interesting
fact is, the revival of the old Taylor prop

doned for thirty-five yeais It Is stated
that recent explorations underground
show one of good quality and in seeming
abundance, within six feet of the ends of

commission as an exhausted property.
The old railroad leading to L'Anse was
toin up and the ore dock destroyed some
years ago
Restoration of old Lucy mine is pro

attention will soon be turned to No 5
which is deeper than 3 There is a com
plete machinery outfit on the ground and
fifty men are working
At Moore mine, of the Steel corpora
tion stripping is completed and arrange
ments are made for shipments, but no
ore can be shipped until the great crush
ing plant at Escanaba is ready, and that
will not be until 1904's season An area
500 bv 1,200 feet is stripped of about 500,-

Duluth mine is being stripped more
heavily than ever The present work is
near No 3 shaft, joining the Canton mine,
which has been idle since 1896 There
is nearly half a mile of exposed workings
on this property
At the Biwabik mine shipments will
probably be much greater than in any pre
ceding year Four shovels are working m
oie loading it with exceeding rapidity,
and the large centrifugal crusher is busy
day and night The daily output is above
6 500 tons, and the season will put this
mine in the million-ton class, for the
first time

Saloonkeepers Promise to Remove Screens
and Abide by the Law.
TRACY, MINNThe suit brought by
the city against the saloonkeepers for vio
lating the screen ordinance was stub
bornly contested It began on Friday and
lasted five days The defense, realising
that the violations charged in the com
plaint -were be ond dispute made a des
perate effort to escape the penalty thru
some technicality First the validity of
the ordinance was attacked But after
two days of controversy by the lawyers,
the court sustained the ordinance
By change of venue the case went be
fore another justice and two more days
were consumed in taking testimony and
in argument In the meantime the whole
city was stirred up over the case and the
courtroom was full of interested specta
tors Public sentiment was decidedly In
sympathy with the prosecution
On the fifth day the court acquitted the
defendant The decision no doubt was
due to the fact that long before the trial
was over all the saloonkeepers signified
a willingness to remove their screens and
abide by the law And as the prosecu
tion was brought not so much to punish
the offenders as to insure their future
complance with the law it is not likely
the city will appeal the case It is gen
erally conceded that the law-abiding ele
ment scored a splendid victory, notwith
standing the decision

Unique Business Proceeding In the Town
v of Brooten.
ST CLOUD, MINNThe village offi

served with a temporary injunction re
straining them from the selling of flour
and feed The complainant is Ludwig L.
Nerlien, who operates a line of flour mills
on the Soo road
In 1894 or 1895, the village donated a
site and about $1 000. toward the establish
ing of a flour mill near the station. L L
Nerlien, operating a competing mill at
Belgrade, four miles distant, purchased
the Brooten mill in the winter of 1898 and
closed its doors This incensed the citi
zens and village council
The village went into the flour trade
and has been selling flour at a few cents
above cost ever since This makes five
years that it has been carrying on a re
lentless warfare against Nerlien
Nerlien la his petition a8sei$&4hat the
village and its officers are engaged In the
sale of flour and feed at and below the
cost of its manufacture, that it is using
the village hall as a storage-house, and
that it is using the village funds for the
purpose of carrying on the business, con
trary to law, that as a taxpayer he ob
jects to the use of the public money in a
private business It is alleged that the
village has sold an average of two car
loads of flour and feed a month, and that
in the year just passed there has been sold
not less than 800,000 pounds of flour.

against the rooster because, it is alleged,
it attacks children when they approach

it is looked upon as a public nuisance
The rooster went so far yesterday as
to fly at a woman who is the wife of one

enemy of Mr Burns The constable
rushed down to the home of the fighter's
owner and demanded that the bird be
Immediately placed in the "coop " At this
Burns seized a carbine saber hanging on
the wall and ordered the constable off
the premises The man was slow to go,
and Mrs Burns highly indignant, placed
three hard, fast blows on the face of the
constable, who promptly toppled over,
knocked out in the first round.
No arrests have been made, and even
the rooster is still at large Burns says
it is a plain case of persecution and that
the fowl is perfectly harmless
