A- W. Allan, who says he is from Minne

and asked for two insurance policies on
the barns of Barrett & Zimmerman. He
was given the policies, and beipg the brok

Dululh Organization Would Be Offi
cial, hut Under Present Law Could
Not Receive Any of the National
Guard Appropriation, Says the At
torney General's Department.
& *
Duluth's naval reserve, when mus
tered in, will be a part of the mili
tary forces of the state*, but not a part
of the national guard. It will not be
entitled to share in the state's appro
priation for maintenance of the guard.
This is the ruling made by W. J.
Donahower, assistant attorney gen
eral, to Adjutant General Libby, who
referred the proposition to him. There
was an act passed in 1899 authorizing
the governor to muster in riot more
than eight companies of naval reserve,
but this act did not provide for any
state aid. The national guard code
passed last winter enumerates the
organizations that shall comprise the
guard, and does not include the naval
reserve. As the state appropriation,
is made for maintenance of the na
tional guard, none of it can be di
verted to this naval reserve.
Duluth citizens are ready to equip
the reserve's, but they do not care to
pay the expense of maintaining the
Gideons. '".

at 7:30 with C. J. Miller as leader.

In an interview to-day, M. W.
age sets himself right on the
Side park question. In the public
mind the Savage park in front of the
International building seems to have
been confounded or joined with the
proposition taken up later by public
spirited citizens across the river. To
this Mr. Savage has contributed, but
he is not back of the movement. Mr.
Savage says:
"I notice in a morning paper that
some people evidently think that I
am a moving spirit in the purchase
of the two blocks between my build
ing, the East high school and Cen
tral avenue.
"Such a conception is entirely
wrong, as I had absolutely nothing to
do with starting the movement and
I have not given it any personal at
tention since it was started except to
donate $600 last fall, with the under
standing from the committee that if
I would give them this $600 they
could secure a few hundred more that
"was being held for East Side improve
ments. The statement was made at
that time that with this amount they
expected to be able to make such a
showing that they could probably se
cure the park without having the
abutting property pay for it.
"I am opposed to securing this park,
or any other, except on a plan of gen
era] taxation. If any pai-lc is for the
benefit of the city, then the city should
pay for .it.
', "If it i& not a benefit to the city, then
we certainly do.not need it.
.. "There is no question but tha tparks
are of a great advantage to any city,
and unless provided for now, will have
to be secured at an immense cost at
some future time. Our "parks, as im
proved, are enjoyed by people from all
parts of the city, and every resident
should be willing to pay his share for
what is a benefit for the general good.
"The only proposition I ever made
was that I would improve and main
tain a park in front of my building
and keep it open for the public, pro
viding the city took enough interest in
the matter to remove certain resorts
on Main street.
"The two blocks under considera
tion at the present time as the East
Side pairk,'would not join this pi'oper
ty, and is an entirely different mat
ter, and I have not had any part in
promoting it except by giving the $600,

We are going to introduce an innovation in piano selling. It has always been the
custom to have piano sales in January to force the business and clean up generally.
We are going to do something different and start our piana sale right now. We
will offer new pianos at prices and on terms that will make the people- who had
figured they could not buy a piano for Xmas think differently.
Our Stock Includes the Finest I Pro-
ductions of High Grade Manufacturers
W e can not figure out any good reason why people should be charged more in December for a piano
than January, hence the reason for this sale. In addition to heavy reductions in all new pianos,our ?
entire stock of used uprights, squares and organs will be sold in the regular Kimball wayprice v
and terms sell the goods. W e will store instruments free of charge until Xmas. A handsome stool '
and scarf and piano delivered at your home without additional charge. Store and second floor piano

Bit of Interesting History
''IThe prophetic abilities of- General
Arthur MacArthur, U. S. A., were
proved and recorded five years ago at
fSt. Paul. The success he thus ob
tained as an expert in stating and
solving the military problems likely
to confront the United States gives
importance to the prediction he made
recently at Honolulu, that war be
tween this country and Germany
ate future, and that the field of con
gest would be the Pacific ocean. Diplo
matic necessity has forced the gen
eral, to deny, his alleged statements.
But General MacArthur's prediction
was incorporated- in -a report to Gov
ernor-Carter byf'Colonel Jones of the
Hawaii militia,-'who declares that he
repeated the substance of conversa
tions with the, gerieraL
It was on April 2, 1898, three weeks
beforethe war 'with Spain began, that
General MaeArthur, then adjutant
general of the department of Da
kota, was interviewed at St. Paul
upon the probable conduct of the war.
Quoted the next day as "an officer
of rank," General MaeArthur said:
"All of the regular army, no
doubt, much of the national guard,
and perhaps a number of volunteers
will be called upon to do duty along
the seacoast. But very few of these,
troops will ever catch sight of a
fighting Spaniard'. The enemy# would
scarcely dare to land men at any point
and the only active service of our
army would be in connection with the
capture of Cuba. The Spaniards might
avoid the large cities and land where
they could do but little damage, but
I. .think such,, raids will be mere ima
gination. """"''!''""
"We shall have many more fighting
ships than the enemy can send to at
tack us, and if the enemy's ships tire
kept out of. mischief wherever they
'chance to be, all the rest of the, coast
-will""be .fas safe as if the -war were
being fought on Mars. What is nec
essary, in order, to prevent a Spanish
war vessel from finding herself alone,
like a deserted stage girl in a black
gown, is an abundance of small fast
boats that can maintain a perfect line
of reconnaissance- and still be"- able to
get out of the way promptly..
