Special to Tbe Journal. - --
Chicago. Dec. 21^-A Joyous Christ
mas will prevail thruout Minnesota
this year, Judging from the comment
of the Chicago'press. The Inter Ocean
this morning voices the prevalent
opinion here in the following editorial:
The state ^of Minnesota has $100,000
which it is anxious to invest in good bonds
within the next month. Within the next
three months $300,000 will he available for
similar investment. The state treasurer
has sent out circular Jetters to a large
number of brokers asking for propositions
on good state or municipal bonds. The
bonds which Minnesota will accept are
only those of states in good standing.
Minnesota municipalities and the stock of
good Minnesota corporations. It is stated
that the money which the state treasurer
was authorized to invest by the state
board of investment, which met on Dec.
5, is part of the permanent trust funds.
The money now available is of ther univer
sity permanent fund.
The press and people of Minnesota are
naturally proud of the fact that their state
is to-day one of the wealthiest common
wealths of the union. According to the
Winona Independent, "Her trust funds
aggregate nearly $20,000,000 and there are
still large areas of state land and mining
properties from which a great deal of
money will be realized each year."
In a recent speech Governor Van Sant
predicted that within the next twenty
years these funds will reach $70,000,000.
The affairs of Minnesota have been ad
mirably managed.. Real business admin
istration' has 'marked the conduct of its
government. The funds which she has
accumulated and of- which she is so justly
proud now have .been.realized from the
sale of state schSol lands swamp lands,
stumpage and taxes and rentals on the

-SpTsciat^to The I*urnaT3pJ,--r:
New York, Dec. 21.There is talk
here of a deputation of twin city in
terests who have asked Mr. Stickney
to take'under consideration the build
ing of .a line froin the twin cities to
Duluth in a dire'ct line, -making a
route thirty-six miles shorter than the
old St^ Paul & Duluth- road, now the
Duluth short linefbf the Northern
Pacific. Great Western people here
are In the dark. They say it has not
come before any meeting of directors
and that they don't believe, jt will be
taken up seriously this fiscal year at
least. .
A representative of the Great North
ern says: "It's easy to figure that
Duluth handles more business than
New York and has only about three
lines to handle ft ayer*. That is, I be
lieve, according to government figures,
true. Yet the fact remains that I
never heard of any freight congestion
worth while in that quarter. We
heard last summer about some new
line up there financed by local capital.
I suppose it still is in existence and
will probably be the line referred to.
In the meantime our tonnage to Du
luth is not quite keeping up. The last
summer has not been all that "could be
desired in the matter of ore trade on
the local lines toward the lake.
Neither has grata- tonnage shown
great increase. Personally I don't be
lieve that the Great Western is likely
to invade that terrjjjtpry."
Man Who Traveled-on Scalpels Ticket
Must Pay.
The Great Northern won the suit
against the passenger whose baggage
it held at Seattle because he was dis
covered to be riding on a scalper's
ticket. The court awarded the road
the price of a full ticket from St. Paul
to Seattle. The baggage is valued at
$20 and 4s still held. This is. a new
feature in the antiscalping business:
No roads have brought suit before
against a passenger who rode on "a
scalper's ticket.
