Reduction in State Fair

Dairy experts say that the number and quality
of the exhibits of dairy cattle at the state
fair are falling off year by year. Considering
the constant growth and great importance of
the dairy industry, they regard this fact as de
W. W. P. McConnall, state dairy and food
commissioner, believes a change In methods would
greatly revive interest in this section of the
"Dairy cattle at the fair are now judged on
points," said Mr. McConnell in explaining his
Idea to Th e Journal. "Now dairy animals
are not kept for their looks, but for their ability
to product milk and butter. Trotting horses are
not marked on points, but put on the track to see
what they can do. I have been thinking that
it would be a valuable thing for the state to

able aspect are good money-makers. Mr. Mc#
Connell is a strong advocate of culling out Min
nesota dairy herds, increasing the production and
the net revenue from the cows.
O. C. Gregg, superintendent of the state farm
ers' institutes, is now engaged in getting photo
graphs of some tweyty-nve of the cows being
tested, and will print them in his next in
stitute handbook, with their records for the
past four months.
Eighth WardersWant a ParkHen
nepin Avenue Easement.
Something in the form of a park is
wanted by the Eighth Ward Central Im
provement association in ^the block
bounded by Aldrich and Bryant avenues,
Thirty-first and Thirty-second streets,
which is now the rendezvous of all the old
tin cans, shoes and barrels from the coun
try around. A committee from the Im
provement association waited on the park
board Monday afternoon to urge the
board to condemn this unsightly block.
The matter was referred to the commit
tee on designation of grounds.
An easement line for buildings was es
tablished on Hennepin avenue in response
to a petition from George H. Partridge
and 200 others. The building line was es
tablished at thirty feet back from the
street line. Action was hurriedly taken
into order to anticipate the action of
the builder of a new flat on Hennepin ave
nue near Franklin, who purposes to build
out flush with the street. A commission of
five appraisers will be selected to award
damages and appraise benefits.

Effected Under State
We Trim Hats
! Ditching Law.-'.
County Must Act if Petitioned by
Citizens Who Would Be
It appears possible that the diverting of
Bassett's creek thru Lakes Harriet and
Calhoun and Minnehaha creek may be
done under state law. Under the state
law the county could be compelled to dig
the ditch, if it was shown to be a benefit
to the property-holders along the creek.
The cost of the work would be paid by
the persons benefitted. The city in gen
eral would be relieved of all expense ex
cept what might be assessed against the
park board for its share of the benefits.
Hundreds of ditches have already been,
built, especially in the Red river valley,
according to the latest ditching law. The
law provides that any person or persons
interested, who would be liable for assess
ment, can petition the county .auditor,
stating the necessity of drainage and
where the ditch should start and where
empty. Then the county commissioners
shall appoint an engineer who shall make
a careful and accurate survey, decide
whether the ditch is feasible, and present
an estimate of the cost. Next the county
commissioners shall appoint three disin
terested viewers, who shall estimate the
damages and benefits and assess the bene
fits to the property benefitted. If, from
the report of the viewers, the benefits are"
found to be equal to the estimated dam
age, the commissioners shall orrder the
construction of the ditch. They must ad
vertise and let the contract for the work
and must assess the land benefitted ac
cording to the viewers' report. The cost
of the ditch and the attendant expenses
are payable in equal installments annually
for ten years, and the assessment is a first
lien on the land.

This law seems to be practicable for the
Bassett's creek ditch. It will cost the city
nothing, except that, if' the park board
is benefitted by the fact that the ditch
would raise the water in Lake Calhoun,
Lake Harriet and Minnehaha creek, the
board could l?e assessed in proportion.
If there is any considerable amount of
land now overflowed or threatened that
could be made permanently dry ground
by the construction of this ditoh, the
benefits alone would pay the entire ex
John Wilson Released From Jail

Suffering From Disease for Which
He May Be'Seeking Free
Is John Wilson trying1
county for free medical treatment?
Wilson was acquitted on a charge of
burglary by, a jijryjh Judge Pond's court
yesterday afternoon, and four hours Jafer
was arrested by. )etectives Hansen and
Helin on a charge of burglarizing, a gas
meter at 403 Washington avenue S. In
police court this morning he said that he
would consent to a postponement of his
case until Oct. 2 If he could be assured
of going to the county jail instead of be
ing held in the city lockup.
When Wilson was in "the city hospital
after being wounded by Patrolman Erick
son who arrested liim for robbing a cash
register in a down town saloon it was
discovered that he was suffering from
a serious disease. While in jail he re
ceived medical treatment and it is hinted
that he wants to continue the treatment
at the county's expense.
Wilson was acquitted yesterday of a
charge to which he offered to plead guilty
if assured that his sentence would not
exceed two years. Such - a stipulation
could not be made and he went to trial.
So confident was the state of conviction
that the case was submitted without ar
gument. They jury was out about an
hour and returned a verdict of not guilty.
Wilson was surprised t the outcome of
the case. "She formalities for his release
were completed and he was discharged
from the county jail at 6 o'clock.
Shortly after 9 o'clock last night a man
was seen in the apartments of Nick Sher
man, 403 Washington avenue S, second
floor, robbing the gas meter. Mrs. Sher
man saw the man and gave a description
of him which led to Wilson's arrest soon
after. He will have a hearing to-morrow.

I don't care for any particular

If a connon scrub cow ca beat fh e Holsteins

believe a test of that kind would not only have
great educational value, but would stir up in

the number and character of the entries."
Mr. McConnell is now conducting such a test
on a large scale. Two hundred cows of different
breeds in different herds are being kept track
of. Bach cow's milk and butter are kept separ
ate, and she is charged up with the pasture and
with the amount of dry feed used. The test
will be kept up for a year, and it will be of
great value when it is finished, as it will show
the possibilities of the different breeds and
types of. cattle conclusively. The work has been

Came Up Before Steam Engineers at
WheelingThe local Secre
tary Returns.
"The color question received more con
sideration from us than did the question
of strikes," said William H. Lyon, Jr.,
former president and present secretary
of the local Hoisting Engineer's union,
who returned yesterday from the seventh
annual national convention of the Inter
national Union of Steam Engineers, held
at Wheeling, W. "Va.
"The Machinists' union does not admit
colored men, while we do, and one mem
ber of our union, who is also a machin
ist, wanted us to pass resolutions to the
American Federation of Labor recom
mending a change in the constitution of
the Machinists' union allowing the ad
mission of colored machinists. .
"After a good deal of debate we de
cided that we wouldn't interfere with
the machinists' business and would let
them handle the color question to suit
themselves. After that we were too busy
attending to sueh changes in the consti
tution as would more properly define the
jurisdiction and powers of the individual
unions to take up any other subject.
"Such conversation as I had with vari
ous members, however, showed that the
engineers prefer arbitration to strikes at
almost every stage of the game."
Style is largely a question of good
taste. It doesn't mean that a fleshy man
should wear baggy clothes just because
they are the customary pattern. Let
