CASH FOR NEW "LIFT'
Fast Elevator Will Be Installed In Post
office at Once.
Cash is forthcoming for the new elevator
at the federal building. There has been
some delay on account of the action taken
by the supervising architect's office at
Washington, but It is now a thing of the
past. When the appropriation was made
for altering the building no provision was
made for a new elevator. Later $25,000
was appropriated for elevators, but the
Washington architects held up the mon'ey
temporarily on the ground that the cash
could be applied to any federal building
they saw fit.
The old elevator only reaches the fourth
floor of the building. Gaping holes in the
floors show that a new elevator was In
cluded in the plans of the changes and
these holes are to be filled with a new and
fast car. Postmaster Hale received a tele
gram from Congressman Lind this morn
ing stating that the financial difficulty had
been cleared away. The new "lift" will
be installed in a short time.

was ordered from the court room.

WATER NOT SAFE
CAN'T BE MADE SO
SIX WELL KNOWN PHYSICIANS
SIGN THIS STATEMENT.
They Intimate That Devices for Puri
flcatioii Would Cost About As Much
As a Permanent Pipe Line from
the Northern Lakes.
It was with deep gratification that
the ladies of the Improvement league,
who have been battling so long for
better water in the city schools and
elsewhere, received this morning a
communication made voluntarily by
six prominent Minneapolis physicians.
The physicians signing the state
ment are Dr. Charles H. Hunter, Dr.
L. F. Foote, Dr. Oscar K. Richardson,
Dr. Asa S. Wilcox, Dr. Leo M. Crafts
and Dr. Jane F. Kennedy, and they
agree that the conditions under which
city water is obtained are such that
the cost of installing proper and effi
cient purifiers would equal that of
piping pure water into the city from
the northern lakes.
The communication reads:
The problem of pure water for Minne
apolis is not solved by the present closing
of the lower stations. There is no more
important question that women and moth
ers of the city can take up. And if the
typhoid epidemio serves to arouse them
thoroly on the subject and keep them per
sistently at it until effective action is ac
complished, it will not be in vain.
The supply is not now safe and cannot
be made so, and statements to the con
trary are dangerous and misleading. To
make the river water approximately safe
will require expenditures nearly or quite
equal to the cost of a pure and ample serv
ice from the lakes, easily available, and it
is to be hoped that the mothers of Min
neapolis will not rest until action is com
pelled, not only providing pure water for
the schools, but for the entire city.
Colon Bacilli Found.
Dr. J. Frank Corbett, city bacteri
ologist, continues to find colon bacilli
on the East Side. He pronounces the
city water at the Sidney Pratt and
Webster sohools dangerous, and the
water at the East High school sus
No colon bacilli were found at the
Douglas or Whittier schools.

OF FREE LUNCH
COUNCIL COMMITTEE RECOM
MENDS ANTELUNCH LAW.
Superintendent Stocking of the Union
City Mission Indorses the Movement
Personal Experience of Local
Business Man"Biscuit Grabber"
Defends the Practice.
Of the thousands whose lives have
been saved by "free lunch" there was
not one with enough gratitude in his
heart to go before the council "free
lunoh" committee and defend this
unique American institution. Health
Commissioner P. M. Hall attacked it
and Fred E. McKay of the Minneapo
lis Ketail L.iquor(association, supported
the assault. He declared that the
free lunch was responsible for making
saloons the gathering places o
"bums," loafers, and petty criminals,
a class which the saloonkeepers were
as anxious to get rid of as any one
could be. The sitting was a short one
and the ordinance making it a misde
meanor to serve free lunch in saloons'
was recommended for passage without
"The abolition of free lunches will
be one of the best strokes ever made,"
said Superintendent C. M. Stocking of
the Union Mission, this morning. "One
night during the winter, when forty
five penniless men applied for permis
sion to stay in a warm room for the
night, I made a canvass and asked
them for frank statements. Thirty
admitted that they lived entirely upon
free lunches. The abolition of the
free lunch will be of benefit to the
saloonkeepers. It is my belief that
between 300 and 400 men in Minne
apolis really depend upon free lunches
for subsistence three or four months
"If the free lunch is abolished these
men will be forced to leave town and
go to the farms where they are need
ed. I think much of the purse
snatching and holdup work has been
due to the fact that the vicious class
can remain in Minneapolis when
without money, and live on free
lunches. I think that the move will
result in a cleaning up of the city,
and that the men who have been de
pendent upon the lunches will have
to go to work or get out."
Cites His Own Experience.
There is one man in Minneapolis
deeply interested in the move to abol
ish the free lunches. He is at present
occupying a position of trust with a
large concern, but a few months ago
he was a member of the "pan-handle"
fraternity. While naturally wishing
his name to be withheld, he is out
spoken in his opinions. He says:
"Free lunch is a tripping place in the
path of many men who would brace
up if the lunches were to be done
away with. I was drinking heavily
at one time and was on the slide
with both feet. What money I made
went for liquor, as I knew that I
could get enough to eat on a 'lunch
route.' I never worried about a meal.
I can go about the city to-day and
point out a hundred men who have
fallen into the free lunch habit. It
is hard on one's self-respect at first,
but after a time I became critical of
the lunches and was resentful if the
supply was cut short. I started to
break away from that way of living
several times, but there is something
about it attractive to the man who
lacks ambition or self-respect. I fin
ally braced up, quit drinking, went to
work, and started paying for my food.
It now makes me shudder to look: back
at the days when I kicked my heels
around saloons and waited for the
free lunch to be set out. It's a big
thing for a lot of men if they are
forced to go to work. Many of them
are not naturally vicious, but need
something to force them to straighten
Defense of the Free Imnch.
This view of the situation is not
general among the hangers-on at the
barrooms, who look for the coming
of the lunch as a hungry dog watches
the door of a butcher shop. When
quizzed as to his opinion of the
change, one of the best known "bis
cuit grabbers" of the Washington
avenue district said: "It's just an
other case of people buttin' in where
they had no call to. They'll yell like
Indians as soon as the boys begin tap
pin' 'em up for lunches at the kitchen
doors, and that's just what it'll come
to, sure as shootin'."
Mrs. Draper Fined $100 and Sentenced
to Sixty Days.
Mrs. Jessie Draper, arrested in the
second raid on the Seventh street re
sorts, changed her plea to guilty in
police court this morning. For sell
ing liquor she was fined $100, and for
conducting such a place her sentence
was sixty days in the workhouse. On
the latter sentence a stay of one day
was allowed, until an officer could
visit the place to verify her state
ment that her furniture had been
moved and the key turned over to
the landlord. If her statement is
found to be correct, she will proba
bly have the option of a fine.

rough stone about fifteen feet high.
On the front side it will bear a medal

The co-operative system proposed is
the mainstay of the plans being made

loyal unionists will have nothing to do
with unlabeled goods and they foretell
a spread of conditions that will find
the market understocked with union
label goods. To meet this condition
they propose to establish manufactur

By these plans it has been found
possible also to employ labor under

FRESHMEN GOME TO TIME
GOPHER A. H. KENNEDY
The freshman academic class met
this morning: and finally decided to
pay the $25 asked for Gopher repre
sentation. This question has been
troubling the class for some time and
a strong party denounced the expen
diture as extravagant. It is reported
that the youngsters were persuaded
by a threat that the Gopher board
would cover three pages of the an
nual with green question marks and
dedicate them to the class of '07 if it
failed to take the usual space.
