MINNESOTA ATHLETIC MANAGE-
MENT SAYS I T HAS NOT TRIED
TO SECURE THE EX-CHAMPION.
- The rumor that the Minnesota ath
letic management is negotiating with
Fitzsimmons, with a view to securing
the ex-champion as trainer of the
gopher athletic teams, is denied by
Dr. H. L. Williams and Manager Bar
nard. Both say that the rumor is en
tirely without foundation, and that the
Idea has not been entertained by the
board of athletic control, nor is it
likely that the proposition will ever
be presented to that body. Fitzsim
mons is without experience in train
ing football men, and it is doubtful
whether he would be able to do the
work, even were it deemed advisable
to hire a professional pugilist.
"The whole story is false," said Dr.
Williams. "It's a fake, pure and sim
ple, and not worthy of notice."
The story was received by The
Journal simply as a rumor, and
was printed as such. No action has
yet been taken by Minnesota in re -
gard to the selection of a trainer for
next year's football team.

GOING OUT OF BUSINESS
St. Anthony Furniture Company Will
Liquidate and Quit.
The St. Anthony Furniture company of
St. Paul, organized July 5, 1902, with a
capital stock of $150,000, has decided to
discontinue its business and to wind up
its affairs as soon as possible without
legal proceedings. This step is necessi
tated by the unprofitableness of the busi
The officers of the company are S. E.
Brace, president G. A. Shellenbarger, vice
president and treasurer, and F. B. Brace,
secretary. S. E. and F. B. Brace have
resigned their positions, and Colonel Hal
stead has been installed as manager. This
was decided upon at a meeting yester
day. The business will be turned over to
two trustees to be named later, the
trustees to proceed to liquidate the com
pany. The liabilities are $60,000, held
largely by banks and in bankers' hands.
The immediate assets, including the plant
and merchandise, are $60,000, and bills
receivable and other assets which may be
realized on aggregate about $60,000.

100 prominent business men, man u

At the luncheon were delegates to
the 1902 congress at Colorado Springs
and those who have recently returned
from the last congress in Utah. They
were: President John Leslie of the

is on his way west to take up the irri

woody attended the Colorado Springs
congress a year ago.
Mr. Maxwell was introduced by
President John Leslie of the club. H e
spoke of the confusion that has arisen
as to his position on the McCumber
bill, which provides that all reclama
tion funds collected in any state or
territory must be spent on irrigation
works within it. H e says that he is
opposed to the McCumber bill, but
believes that so far as is possible the
idea should be put in practice of
spending the reclamation fund in the
states where it is collected.
If the McCumber bill became a law
it would stop work on several sys
tems in which the National Irrigation
association is greatly interested, and
would cause a dislocation of practi
cally all of the plans that have so far
been made. If, however, the funds
are spent, as nearly as natural condi
tions will permit, in the states in
which they are raised, the states or
territories that contribute little or
nothing to the fund will be compelled
to appeal to congress for direct ap -
propriations for their works. These
appeals will lead, in time, to the un -

For the past two years Dr. Tuttle
had been in failingohealth and upon
his last visit here in the summer of
1901 he lay at death's door for many
days at Minnetonka. His death takes
one whose many lovable qualities and
whose native ability had won him a
place "close to the hearts of those with
whom he associated. '
Rev. Dr. James H, Tuttle was in his
eightieth year. He was barn"at Salisbury,
Herkimer county. N. Tf'.'.V July 27,' 1824.
Pie attended a,n' academy/at' Fairfield, N.
Y., and afterward spent two years in the
Clinton Liberal institute. (His family were
Baptists, but while he was still a youth
he changed his religious vi^sws and became
a Universalist. Soon afterward he decided
to enter the ministry. His first pastoral
settlement, in his twentieth year, was at
Ri.chfleid Springs, N. $f. The next was
at Fulton, Oswego comity, N. Y. There,
in 1848, he married Miss Harriet Ef.-Mer-
Mr. Tuttle remained at Fulton until 1853,
when he was called to a more important
charge at Rochester, N. Y. Six yeara
later he removed to Chicago to take the
pulpit of the Second Universalist church,
which grew rapidly in size and influence
under his ministry.
In 1866 a few Universalist families in
Minneapolis were worshipping at Harri
son's hall while their first church was be
ing erected. At this time Dr. Tuttle
came up from Chicago to preach before
the Universalist state convention. The
trustees of the new local society invited
him to bring his family hither, spend the
summer vacation in Minneapolis and
preach to them each Sabbath. He came.
But this summer lengthened into twenty
five years, and then, in 1891, Dr. Tuttle
retired from active work and his asso
ciate, Rev. Marion D. Shutter, was chosen I this city affords during the spring, sum-i
pastor of the Church of the Redeemer.
The title of pastor emeritus was con
ferred upon Dr. Tnttlc. The completion of
his twenty-fifth year in the pastorate was
publicly celebrated, representatives of all
denominations taking part.
Mrs. Tuttle died in 1873 at Dresden, Ger
many, where she had gone to recover her
health. In 1886 the eldest of Dr. Tuttle's
sons passed away in early manhood. The
younger son. George H. Tuttle, is a suc
cessful surgewn in New York.

John Hays, general organizer for the

decide whether he would join the union
or not. This matter does not concern the

Escaped Lunatic Who Tried to See

Sheriff of Lincoln Wires That He
Has ManNo Additional
Peter Elliott, the crazed Minneapo
lis reformer, who won notoriety and
lost his liberty thru his struggle with
the White House guards at Washing
ton, is probably in Lincoln county in
the extreme southwestern' portion of
Hennepin county authorities to-day
received a report from Dr. Tomlinson,
superintendent of the hospital for the
insane at St. Peter, that several mes
sages had come to him from Lincoln
county indicating that Elliott Was
there. One. message was from the
village marshal at Tyler, who said
that a man at that place had attracted
attention by his strange action.and that
he was suspected of being Elliott.
Dr. Tomlinson immediately wired the
marshall to arrest the suspect at once.
Before any word was received in reply
to this message, another telegram
came from the sheriff of Lincoln coun
ty at Lake Benton, stating definitely
that he was Elliott, but not . saying
Whether he was actually under arrest

Costs Nothing if it Fails
Any honest person who suffers from Rheums*
tism is welcome to this offer. For years I
searched everywhere to find a specific for Rheu
matism. For nearly twenty years I worked to
this end. At last, in Germany, my search was
rewarded. - I found a costly chemical that did
not disappoint me as other Rheumatic =jprescrlp^
tions had disappointed'1
physicians everywhere. . _* .
I do not mean that br. Shoop's Rheumatic Cur*
can turn bony Joints into flesh again. That 1
Impossible. But It will drive from the blood
the poison that causes pain and swelling, and
then that is the end of Rheumatism. I know this
so well that I will furnish for a fall month my
Rheumatic Cure on trial. I cannot cure all
case* within a month. It would be unreason
able to expect that. But most cases will yield
within thirty days. This trial treatment will
convince you that Dr. Shoop'a Rheumatic Cure
is a power against Rheumatisma potent force
against disease that is irresistible.
My offer is made to convince you of my faith
My faith is but the outcome of experienceof
actual knowledge. I know what it can do. And
I know this so well that 1 will furnish my reme
dy on trial. Simply write me a postal for my
book on Rheumatism. I will then arrange with
a druggist in your vicinity so that you can se
cure six bottles of Dr. Shoop's Rheumatic Ours
to make the test, l'ou may take it a full month
on trial. If it succeeds the cost to you is $5.60.
If it fails the loss is mine and mine alone. It
will be left entirely to you. I mean that ex
actly. If you say the trial is not satisfactory
I don't expect a penny from you.
