to launch a campaign for a fund to im

of the movement by the leading mem

Fears That Diversion Will Make the
Park Lakes too HighAlso Believes
That the Natural Drainage Below Di-
version Point Will Still Keep the
Creek Going.
Andrew Rinker, citv engineer, has
been spending two days in the field
with a corps of engineers to ascertain
whether it is feasible to divert Bas
sett's creek into the chain of park lakes
and eventually into Minnehaha creek.
The purpose of the improvement is
three-fold, namely: to maintain a high
stage of water in Cedar lake, Lake of
the Isles and Lake Calhoun' a nd Har
riet to have plenty of water in Minne
haha creek, and to eliminate Bassett's
creek inside the city limits, because it
is simply an open sewer.
Mr. Rinker does not find the task an
easy one. Medicixite lake, the source
of Bassett's creek, and the lakes in tho
park system are full beyond their shore
lines. Bassett 's creek' and Minnehaha
creek are more than' bank full. Th
high water at Calhoun is injuring the
boulevard, and washing away the soil
from the roots of the trees. The boule
vard around Lake of the Isles is also
being damaged. Minnehaha creek is
so high that work on the Nicollet ave
nue bridge has been suspended.
"All this has come to pass under
normal conditions," explained Mr.
Rinker today. "Now, what will hap
pen if Bassett's creek is turned in to
the lake system? Where shall be store
the water after we divert it? I any
more water should be turned into the
lakes, the damage would be greatly in
"If we should make a large storage
reservoir of Medicine lake, we would
also be stori ng up troubl e. When the
lake is high, the hay meadows surround
ing are full of water and if the high
stage is maintained, it is plain that the
farmers cannot cut any hay. Naturally,
they could claim damages and we would
have the same trouble as the county
has had in connection with the famous
Mmnetonka dam out of which numerous
costly suits have grown. Undoubtedly,
the damage would be greater than the
value of the land that would re
claimed straightening the creek
"To eliminate Bassett's creek is not
an easy matter. I is proved by meas
urement that there is more water in the
creek onA
mile below the proposed point
of diversion than at the latter point.
This is to be expected, for, leaving
Sweeny. Twin a nd Keegan's lakes out
of consideration, the creek also drains
big swamp s.
"To divert Bassett's creek is one
thing, but to pro\ide safeguards against
future damage by high Water is quite
another problem, and I have not yet
solved it."
The maze of entanglements surround
ing the affairs of Joseph Cisarsky was
sumari lry disposedt otf today in the
United States court of bankruptcy by
Referee O. C. Men-ima n. issued an
ordemr fo Cisarsk urn over $80 0
irst Church forthwith to Oscar Ertsgaard, appoint
ed receiver. I case the money is not
turned over, Cisarsky will be commit
ted to the county jail for contempt
of court. This is the second time in
the history of the court that such an
order has been issued.
The lawyers for the creditors, among
whom are some of the largest dealers
at the Central market, are Charles Fow
ler, W E Furst and Dan E Richter.
This mornin g, when Cisarsky was on
the stand, tney attacked his evidence
and impeached the witnesses, who de
clared that the money ad been stolen
from a Imreau drawer. When Captain
Merriman issued the order he said that
it was a plain case of conspiracy to
conceal the money. Cisarsky, who was
a meatdealer on the "row," failed for
about $2,200.

Saturday Evening, THE
Turned Away from Home on Dakota
Farm Because They Could Not Do
More WorkWalked Thirty Miles to
Barrett, Minn.Found Exhausted in
Passenger Station in Minneapolis.
Driven front home by an angry hus
band and father wno said they
"couldn't do enough work to pay for
their board," Mrs. Lizzie Hagedus and
her three small children of Foreman,
N D., were fou nd exhausted in the
Union station last evening.
All were so weak from hung er that
they could scarcely walk an'd a police
man took them to Central station where
they wore giv en shelter until this
The wom an told her story to Matron
Sarali Schaeffer, and said she had no
friends to ask for aid. Both she and
the children, she said, had worked
on the farm of her husband, who
abused them continually, and told them
to do more wor k. Finally, the hus
band decided that she was worthless,
and told her to look for another home.
With h^r children she walked thirty
miles to Barrett, Minn., and there the
citizens took up a collection to send her
to Minneapolis, where, they had heard,
poor people were well car ed for. The
mo'n'ey obtained was just enough to pur
chase the transportation, and the long
fast, together with the walk, exhausted
the family.
This morning the poor department
took up the case and learned that the
woman's story was true. A she is
not a resident of Minneapolis, she could
not be giv en aid, and a return' ticket to
her home was purchased. Arrange c
ments was also made with a charitable
society at Foreman to care for her, and
to institute proceedings against her

Night Session of CourtStrange
Woman Tells Him "Good-by."
William Williams is guilty of the
murder of John Keller and must forfeit
his life. The date of his execution will
be fixed by the governor of Minnesota.
Shortly "after 11 last night the jury,
after deliberating for six hours, filed
into Judge Lewis' room the Ramsey
county courthouse. The defendant and
his counsel were in their accustomed
places, and the man accused of two mflr

the announcement of his fate. When
the clerk read the verdict of guilty, the
prisoner did not ev en change expression.

roeceded the form al way to conL

When Williams was led out of the
courtroom and back to his cell, in
"murderer's row" he was followed by
a mysterious woman, who has been in
constant attendance at the trial, and
who has taken a strange intere st in the
defendant. Her identity is unknown,
but it is believed that she is a religious
fanatic, who has been sending him spir
itual letters for the past few weeks.
When the party reached the jail, the
woman rushed up to the prisoner. Sh

Yesterday's sessions were entirely

New Burlington Limited Just Out of

The Burlington limited train which

Canadian Wheat Output Will Be Heavy
with Goood Weather.
W. H. McWilliams, the Winnipeg grain
man. who is in Minneapolis today, says
conditions are highly fa\orable for a
good wheat crop in the northwest. Above
the line there has been abundant mois
ture. The Bed river* alley on the Ameri
can and Canadian sides is too wet, and
any more rain at this time would only de
lay progress Warm, growins weather is
needed, and a tew days of it would bring
the crop along in good shape.
"There will be an increase of almost 20
per cent in the wheat acreage in the ter
ritories," said Mr. McWilliams, "and Man
itoba probably will have 4,500,000 acres in
wheat. If we get an ordinary good chance
at it, and reasonably good weather thru

More Than Two Hundred Oars Were
Thrown Into the City This Morning
Time, I I Thought, Will Be Too
Short for the Market Gamblers to
Accomplish Their Purpose.
Men who fought the Gates corner in
Chicago and put that plunger to the
bad, are now working hard to smash
the price of Minneapolis May wheat by
flooding this market. They have only
eight days vet to work m, and holders
of May believe they cannot do it in
so short a time. Nevertheless, they
threw 200 cars into Minneapolis this
mornin g. A year ago today, with the
movement norm al for the. season, the
receipts were 80 cars. The excess to
day represents wheat rushed
up here
under the cut rates of the Ro ck Island
and Great Western roads, by Chicago
shorts, and also considerable country
wheat put away in the bins for long
holding, but drawn out by the high
price in Minneapolis.
Country millers in Minnesota who
have stocks of No. 1 northern wheat
on hand were found this morning to
be quietly selling wheat in Minne
apolis. One large terminal elevator
company bought 60,000 at the price
of the May option in Minneapolis.
Other local elevator companies bought
some, and it is estimated that 200,000
has been sold here within a day
or two. This is a development so much
out of the ordina ry as to excite inter
est in all markets. Minneapolis Mav
is higher than other markets, a nd the
country holders have been tempted by
the price. For months some of these
ountry mills have been hanging onto
a little old No. 1, against the day when
it should be scarce. The calculation
was to use it in their mills, but when
Minneapolis Mav wheat spurted to
$1.20 recently it was too mu ch for some
holders, who could see a good profit
and concluded to let go and take
chances of getting it back late r.
Whether enough of this private
stock" wheat will be run in here to
affect the price, and put a burden upon
the holders of tho May here, is a ques
tion. The time is so short that it is
doubtful if it will break the market
much, unless the movement increases
materially, for a country seller must
get his stuff here by May 26, or ele
vators will not take it, for May 31 is
final delivery day, a nd with two Sun
days and an extra holidav coming they

about seventeen miles above the ferry
at Fort Snelling, Clark ad occasion
to cut a piece of wrood

knife. The blade flipped and sank
deep into his left leg above the knee,
severing an artery.

way Clark fainted several times from

Evidences of General Prosperity Noted
