one bed from the fire and one was
loaned them. They have one chair and

BATTLES WITH THE GOLD CAUSE
Citizens Keep Filing on the Coal in
Vain Effort to Break Gold and
Sparks Bring the Clanging Wagons
Most Blazes Inconsequential, but
Several Cause Losses.
Firemen are sleeping with their
clothes on and with one eye open, and
unless the cold snap breaks soon they
may move their bunks to the trucks.
The man with the ladder and the hose
isn't in the limelight now. He's in
narnesa and a slave to the careless
ness of shivering householders who
want to see what the furnaces and
stoves will do toward breaking up the
mantle of cold.
For the last two days drivers of all
sorts of rigs and owners 'of baby car
riages have been suffering with wry
necks caused by looking over their
shoulders for fire engines. The small
boy in the residence district keeps his
face against the window, watching for
the dashing horses and a streetcar gong
creates a furore in the business center.
And all this excitement is caused by
persons who try to get their houses so
warm that the cold winds will glance
Occupants of high flat buildings were
treated to a pretty display of fireworks
last evening when they looked out of
their windows. Between 7 and 9
o'clock a dozen small fires were play
ing about the chimneys of overfed
heating plants. At one time these
blazes sprang up so fast in some dis
tricts that the fire forces had to be
divided to attend all.
Shovel Works Overtime.
Those who lived in detached houses
saw some of these fires, too, but they
kept on shoveling coal, tho fearing thai
the next alarm would call the big red
wagons to their places. A cold wave is
the firefiend's friend among the frame
houses, for at such times nearly all the
fires are confined to the smaller houses.
Twenty-one alarms were rung in
Sunday and Monday, and all of them
brought work for the department.
Fourteen of these occurred yesterday,
after the early morning fall of the
thermometer, and two of them caused
Aside from the actual loss the fear
that fills the small homes is unusual.
The children and old folks must be
kept warm and the danger of a fire
constantly stares them in the face. The
racing horses and the rattle of the fire
wagons may be fun for the visitor but
when they race past a house that is
poorly heated the excitement is att
tended by a little shudder.
Two Horses Burned.
Fire in the did building occupied by
the Northern Scrap Iron & Fuel com
pany at Fourteenth avenue N and Sec
ond street, last night, burned 'two
horses and damaged the building to the
extent of $1,200.
The fire started in the barn, where
the company's horses are kept, and
spread to the othe'r buildings. A part
to the building is used by the People's
Scran Iron company as" a storehouse,
and the loss is about equally divided
between the two companies.
The property was not insured, and
the cause of the fire is not known.

seventh story and burned thru the

IN THE FIFTH WARD
The fifth ward is not generally sup
posed to be in the 'possum belt, but
there is one colored man the ward'
who has a fifth ward 'possum under his
belt today and says it rest fine.
Harvey Clemens, 1514 Portland ave
nue, bagged the animal. For some time
he has been aware that his woodshed
harbored some sort of a boarder that
made free with everything in sight. As
the visitor always managed to keep out
of sight it was supposed to be a rat.
He was found, however, during a clear
ing-up campaign in the woodshed. He
was half hidden in a pile of papers,
and being taken for a large common
rat was killed. The animal did not look
right for a rat. and to settle the ques
tion several schoolteachers were inter
viewed. They identified is as a genu
ine 'possum. The Clemens family does
not eat 'possum, but a colored rousta

STRANGE CASE HANDLES BY THE

Victim of HI TT*a*e Says Was Not

The alleged illtreatment and practi

by his son-in-law, a well-known business
man living on Weat Fiftfteenth street,
has bee nreported to .the? Minneapolis
Humane society &u54 haw occasioned con

case and will see that tthe old man has
better care or another'honte.
The subject of the investigation is 93
years old. He visited 4be Humane so

ing in a lonely room in the third floor
without care or kindness. He says that
he is not allowed to have any gas or a

hidden candle. He is kept isolated
from the rest of the family, and is
never allowed to be seen by visitors to

The old man says his daughter would
be better toh mi, but that she is not al
lowed to by her husband, of whom she
stands in fear. The little children of
the family, whom the grandfather says
he long to see and^ove, are not allowed
to visit him.
There is one devoted daughter who
has done everything in her power to get
her father a home and provide for him.
Owing to her position She is unable to
do much .financially, and her relations
with the family of the old man's alleged
jailer are so strained that her visits
there are necessarily few and far be
tween. This daughter made an effort
some time ago to get her aged parent
into the home of the Little Children of
the Poor, but her plan fell thru.
The father himself has been opposed
to anything being done that might make
his condition worse than ever, and has
suffered for several years in silence. At
last he has given up and is willing to
do anything to get away. He is re
markably well preserved and says he
has many happy years to live if he
only have some comfort.
The son-in-law has been seen by the
Humane society officers. He denies
much of the illtreatment charged to him,

Mr. Shea spoke briefly to a gathering
of teamsters and other union mc^ at

questions as to wh i could be secured
to push the new organization of the
teamsters, and the general opinion
seemed to be that D. Brenner, vice
president and business agent of tho
Minneapolis Teamowners union, was the
best man if he could be had. Mr. Bren

mitting a bond issue will be introduced,
after which it is believed the bridge

At the regular meeting of the public
affairs committee of the Commercial
club today the bridge question was
brought up and approved. Those who
have been backing the project are dethe
termined to make it succeed and already
have made much headway.
It is proposed to use the new struc
ture for diverting heavy traffic from
the present steel arch Tridg extending
from Bridge square to Central avenue.
The Third avenue bridge will connect
with First avenue SE. No street cars
will be allowed on the new bridge, and
as neither First avenue SE nor Third
avenue S have car lines it is believed
that the heavy traffic naturally wili
divert to the side street, thus relieving
tho congestion that at present exists on
the Central avenue bridge and Nicollet
and Hennepin avenues.

WHAT BUSINESS HAVE THE HERE?*
Being the purchasers of the Bankrupt stock of the Evans, Johnson, Sloane
Company, better known as The New Store, Minneapolis^ the above questions
will naturally be asked by many citizens of the Twin Cities. We will state
briefly that we are and have been for fifteen years citizens of the city of Superior,
Wis. We have during that time built up the largest retail business (department
store) in that city of 40,000 people. As to our business reputation and charac-
ter, ask any one who knows.
We are here to turn the assets of The New Store into cash just as quickly
as the Lord and the people of the Twin Cities will let us, and then will pocket
the profits or losses of this business venture and go back where we came from.
You now have the story, and you have got it straight.
It will require another day to perfect an organization and to get the stocks
into shape for quick selling, and when that is done we will give you an opportun-
ity to buy goods cheaper than you ever bought before.
If any article you buy is not worth more than you paid for it bring it back
and get your coin. This may be unusual in bankrupt sales, but it is the way we
have always done business, and'we do not propose to change our methods even
under these conditions. We will, however, ask you to be careful in making selec-
tions, so as to avoid exchanges and refunds as much as possible. The store will
remain closed until Thursday. The rented out departments, Shoes, Furs, Mil-
linery, Muslin Underwear, Pictures, Hair Dressing, Optical, Card Printing,
Candy, Music, Art Goods, Wall Paper, etc., will remain with us and do business
until the store is finally closed. Keep these facts thoroughly in your mind and
be ready for the bankrupt sale Thursday morning, 9:30 o'clock.
STATE G. A.fi.DATES SET
THE DEPARTMENT ENCAMPMENT
WILL BE HELD IN MINNEAPOLIS
Minnesota G-. A. B. Men are looking
forward to a pleasant time in Minne
apolis' on March 21 and 22, the occa
sion being the fortieth annual depart
ment encampment. The call has been
issued by Department Commander C.
F. MacDonald, and there is every indi
cation that the encampment will eclipse
The great topic of interest at the en
campment sessions will be the national
encampment of the *6. A. B-, to held
in Minneapolis in August. Pressing and
urgent invitations have been issued to
General James TJanner, commander-in
chief of the order, and his staff. No
definite answer has been received as
yet, but the invitation was informally
extended and accepted when the com
mander-in-chief and his staff were in
the city last December.
The Minnesota department is plan
ning great things for the national en
campment. These plans will be dis
cussed at the coming department gath
ering and the campaign of the Minne
sota veterans mapped out. Another
important question that will come up
for discussion will be the proposed
changes in the date of the department
It has been the custom in the past to
hold these department gatherings in
February or March. It is now proposed
to change the time to some more fa
vorable season, either in the early sum
mer or fall. The weather in February
and March is generally unfavorable,
and as the veterans become more ad
vanced in years, it is believed that the
latter date will be better.
The regular routine business of the
department will be taken up at the
