from Chicago, where he spent several
days looking over the new Chicago
postoffice and federal building. While

L. S. DONALDSON PROMISES TO
IMPROVE CORNER THERE.
Wi ll Lease the'Property Temporar-
ily Till Plans for a Handsome Per-
manent Improvement Can Per-
fectedHotel Plans Have Been Laid
Aside for the Present.
Improvement of the corner of Sev
enth street and Nicollet avenue is
promised by the lessee, Lawrence S.
Donaldson.
Mr. Donaldson has -just returned from
a winter at Los Angeles and has not
had opportunity yet to make a definito
decision as to the future of the corner,
but a" building will be erected that will
be a credit to Nicollet avenue.
Plans for a hotel arcade entrance
thru the corner property, have been laid
aside by Mr. Donaldson, as he is not
Bure that a hotel entrance at that par
ticular point would be a good thing for
Nicollet avenue.
With Mr. Donaldson's other hold
ings on Seventh street, running back
toward Sixth street and First avenue,
a hotel of from 250 to 275 rooms could
be accommodated easily.
The building site wmch Mr. Donald
son owns onNicollet avenue has a front
age of forty-four teet and a depth of
132 feet. also has a sixty-six-foot
frontage on Seventh street, which,
after running back about sixty feet,
has a rear width of 145 feet.
Mr. Donaldson said today that Nic
ollet avenue ought to be built to Tenth
street with good retail establishments.
Seventh will be the best cross-town
street, because of the saloons on Sixth.
With his extreme interest in Nicollet
as a retail street, it may be predicted
that whatever structure Mr. Donaldson
decides upon, it will be erected with
an eye to the future of the retail busi
ness.

NOSEGDARD IS ARGUMENT
FRIENDS OF FOOTBALL POINT
TO LARSON A S LIVING EXPON-
ENT O BASKETBALL ROUGH-
NESS. Equipped with a regulation football
noseguard, Louis Larson, a member of
the University of Minnesota basketball
team, appeared on the university floor
for practice last night, and it is an
nounced by basketball authorities at
the university that Larson will enter
the Wisconsin game on Saturday even
ing wearing a hard rubber protection
for his nasal appendage.
Thjs announcement is welcomed with
glee by university football rooters, who
argue that the introduction of football
paraphernalia into basketball shows
that the game is on a par with foot
ball for roughness and that basketball
followers not consistent in agitat
ing football reform.
I additioii to the appearance of
Larson with a football noseguard, sev
eral menfbers of the basketball squad
were equipped with regulation knee
bandages, and there was not a regular
in practice who did not sh ow the effect
of rough work on the floor.
Larson's appearance equipped with
a noseguard is explained by the state
ment that his nose was broken in the
game with Chicago last Saturday eve
ning, but this explanation is looked
upon by football rootene as a further
argument that football is not the only
college sport of a dangerous character.

GARRY CASE
TO4
HIGHEST COURT
TICKET BROKERS ^MAKE ,Q$|
MORE LEGAL EFFORT.
Manford Case Will Appealed to Su-
preme Court of the United States, on
|Hhe Ground that the State Law I in
^Violation of the Federal Constitution.
The state law against ticket scalpers
will be carried to the supreme court of
the United States for a determination.
Two constitutional points will be raised
against the law by John W. Arctander,
attorney for Kobert Manford in the
case recently decided by the state su
preme court.
One is that the law contravenes the
bill of rights in the federal constitution,
depriving m^n engaged in the ticket
business of their property without due
process of law. The other is that it
interferes with interstate commerce.
Manford. 's arrest was for selling a tick
et to a point outside Minnesota, and
his counsel claims that in so interfering
with interstate business the state is
usurping the rights of tho federal gov
ernment. The appeal is now being pre
pared.
Mr. Arctander petitioned the state su
preme couit for a rehearing recently,
and did secure an amendment to its for
mor decision, stating that federal ques
tions were involved in the case. This
furnishes ground for an appeal to the
United States supreme court, and it is
not believed that the court can refuse
to take jurisdiction. The appeal is
backed by the ticket brokers as a body,
who are determined to fight the state
law to the last ditch.
WORKING GIRLS ROBBED
POLIGE KEEP IT QUIET
Directly across the street from Bo-,
lice Superintendent Doyle's office and
under the full glare of an electric light,
two young women were robbed of their
earnings by an unusually daring high
wayman.
The young women, Miss Belle Miller
and Miss Jessie Lawler, are operators
for the Northwestern Telephone com
pany and were working on the night
watch. Th ey completed their work at
12 o'clock and on being relieved they
started home. Th ey came out of the
Third avenue entrance to the building,
which, is opposite police headquarters
and started toward Fourth street to
take a car. Th ey had gone but a short
distance when a tall man with a heavy
collar about his face stepped up to
them.
"Don't move," he said, as he
whipped a revolver from his pocket.
"Just hand over your pocketbooks and
you'll be all right."
held the revolver close to his own
body so that if anyone happened to see
him it would appear that ne was sim
ply talking to the girls.
The girls didn't scream, but th ey
handed over their purses without pro
test. This done the robber replaced his
revolver and darted into the alley back
of the building. The frightened girls
ran back into the building and re
ported, their loss.
The purses contained several dollars
in small change. Later the matter was
reported to the police, but the facts
were closely guarded and not made pub
lic.
FRUIT MEN PROTEST
California Growers S ee Their Pinl sh in
Recent Supreme Court Decision.
California fruitgrowers, organized as
the California Fruitgrowers' exchange,
are up in arms at a recent decision of
the supreme court of the United States,
virtually depriving shippers of fruii ._.,.
of all rights in routing or directing!
their shipments. Strong resolutions
condemning the decision and demand
ing relief have been drawn up and are
being sent broadcast over the country.
It is maintained that shippers ha ve
no rights in routing, that their prop
erty is often sent in a round-about way
entailing delay and loss, and that the
fruitshippers of California are abso
lutely at the mercy of the railroads re
garding rates and other charges. It is
charged that the decision denies to the
interstate commerce commission ana
public authorities any control of com
merce and rates and vests it in the
railroads, that it makes a meaningless
jumble of words of the interstate com
merce act, that the power given the
railroads is equivalent to the limitless
power of taxation, and that it is un
constitutional.
Relief is demanded thru legislation
and increased powers for the inter
state commerce commission. The deci
sion in question was rendered Feb. 26,
the action being known as the Citrus
fruit cases. The resolution is adopted
by action of the board of directors of
the association, which has a member
ship of over three thousand. It ships
annually over 14,000 cars of fruit and
pays nearly $6,000,000 annually in
freight and refrigerator charges.
DRINK CAUSES DOWNFALL
Grocery Clerk Arrested for Stealing
from Employer. 4
Harry L. Peck, formerly a clerk in
the Sunnyside grocery at'Lyndale av
enue and Twenty fourth street, was ar
rested in St. Louis Monday on a charge
of embezzlement and brought back yes
terday to answer the charge.
Peck left the city about three weeks
ago and a shortage as found in his
accounts. I was learned that he had
gone to St. Louis and the police there
were asked to pick him up.
Peck is married and says his trouble
as caused by drink. as short of
money and could not resist the tempta
tion to steal. says he will be able
to square the deal and he may not be
prosecuted. is accused of taking
$5135.
Peck was arraigned in police court
today and held to ,the grand lury in
$1,000 bail.
MAKE SECOND TEST
Health Department Fights for Pure Milk
Supply.
A secoAd -test of the Minneapolis ordi
nance prohibiting the sale hi this city'
of milk shipped by rail from outside
points, unless the article is from herds
which have been inspected for tubercu
losis/ is now being made in/ the municipal
court. The ordinance was argued today
before Judge E. F. Waite, the facts
alleged by the health department being
admitted. The defendant is the Minne
sota Creamery, 427 Central avenue.
The health officials hope to secure a fa
vorable decision, as the ordinance will
enable^ them to prevent the sale In this
city of a large quantity of milk from cat
tle which may be diseased. The new code
strengthens the authority of cities with
regard to milk inspection and the fprmer
order may be reversed.
THE MINNEAPOLIS JOURNAL.
G. N. IS TO SPEND
SIX MILLION $ $
r THIS YEAR."
New Equipment for Oriental Limited,
New Motive Power, Passenger
Coaches of All Kinds and Freight.
Carrying Equipment Are to JBe Pro-
vided Out of the Appropriation,
With $6,000,000 to spend, the Great
Northern road expects to equip the sys
tem with enough rolling stock and mo
tive power this season to take care
of the rapidly growing territory in the
best manner, It is said that the Great
Northern will spend this tremendous
amount in 1906 for coaches, cars and
locomotives.
The Great Northern road has just
equipped seven trains for the Oriental
Limited with new Pullman coaches
thruout. When the old equipment of
these trains comes from the shops it
will be nt for the most fastidious trav
el on the line. This will be used, in all
probability, where the traffic is not so
heavy, while the new rolling stock will
be placed on the coast trains.
The order for stock will include about
100 passenger coaches, sleeping and
tourist cars, bagga ge cars and mail
cars. The Great Northern will buy also
a lot of new refrigertor cars to take
care of the fruit and meat trade, as
well as innumerable boxcars for the
regular merchandise traffic.
It has already been announced that
part of the new motive power money
will be expended on five Mallet com
pound engines for the heavy mountain
grades. This type of locomotive at
tracted the greatest amount of atten
tion at the St. Louis exposition, and
the sample on exhibitiqn has proved
its worth in the Baltimore & Ohio moun
tain service, in one year's use.
QUESTION OF TAXES
Judge Brown to Settle Case Involving
Important Principle.
A peculiar condition and an import
ant point has been raised in proceed
ings brought by John Lundquist to com
pel County Auditor Hugh R. Scott to
indorse upon a deed "taxes paid and
transfer entered" so that the deed of
premise may be recorded. The hear
ing before Judge V. Brown will de
termine the rights of the county audit
ors in paying refunds on ax titles and
may lead to other important findings.
I 1890 L. E. Kelley purchased the
1888 taxes on the premises question
to protect a mortgage. Afterwards
Kelley made an assignment of all his
property, including this tax title to his
assignees. The assignees later con
veyed the premises tQ Lundquist, the
mortgagee who had then become owner
of the premises. Afterward the coun
auditor refunded the amount of the'
1888 tax es to Kelley, the judgment un
der which the ax title had been issued
having become void under section 1,610
of the old statutes. The county auditor
claimed that the taxes so refunded to
Kelley at once became a charge against
the property and that he could not
mark the tax es paid upon the deed.
The owner of the property and the
present plaintiff -claims that the tax
title passed fro'm Kelley to his assignees
and from them to ninf un-cler the mort
gage foreclosure and teen merged in the
owner's title and was thereby extin
guished. I this is so then the manda
mus must be granted, but the county
auditor claims that he knew nothing
about the deeds and properly paid the
money to Kelley who produced the tax
certificate.
DUST OR NO DUST?
Wisconsin Central Objects to Paying
Great Northern Tax.
Objection is made by the Wisconsin

XT~-*1
?ort
th benefit of the Great
Northern railway, which is what the
former road has been called upon to do
in its tax statement for this year. A
official of the Wisconsin Central spent
the greater part of the morning with
the county auditor and the city engi
neer in having the matter set right.
Some time ago/the Great Northern
made an arrangement with the city
for sprinkling the driveway to the de
grounds of the union station, and
the sake of convenience the cost
was assessed against two lots adjacent
to the road.
Subsequently the lots were sold to
the Wisconsin Central, but the record
on the assessment roll remained the
same. The Wisconsin road does not
care whether the road is sprinkled or
not, and positively objects to the as
sessment as the service, tho beneficial
to the Great Northern, is of no value
to the present owner of the lots.
If no arrangement caA be made with
the Great Northern, the driveway will
not be sprinkled thisfyear.

A exhibit of dental furniture, ma
chinery and instruments of torture,
which may be looked upon without fear,
is to be seen displayed at the Hotel Nic

is that of the Dental Manufacturers'
association, and is located in two large
apartments on the second floor, parlors

The display has already been exhibited
at a number of different cities. It is
brought here from Des Moines. I will
next go to Milwaukee, then to Chicago
and points tile east. Q. Alten
burg of Toledo, secretary of the Dental
Manufacturers' association, is here and
in charge of the exhibit with a corps
of assistants from the various com
panies having* exhibits. The exhibit
was visited this afternoon by a large
number of dentists from different parts
of the state, as well as of the twin
cities.
Styles in Teeth.
Gold is. shown in its various stages of
manufacture, from raw material as re
ceived, pure from the mint, to the fin
ished product, ready to fill some dark
spot in a human tooth. There are
teeth of every size and of every kind
which dental ingenuity has as yet pro
duced. There are hundreds of mysteri
ous looking instruments, from the fine,
needle-like tools used to tickte refrac
tory nerves to death, to the big, ugly
looking "tweezers" guaranteed to
twist the most securely imbedded molar
out of any human socket in the usual in
human way. There is a large exhibit
of dental furniture, the principal por
tion being a number of chairs in which
a patient might sleep in luxury if the
dentist would only let him alone. There
are little engineshydraulic, Asolene
and electricwith which finer drills
mav be driven with resistless power
into the business portions of unhealthy
teeth.
One interesting innovation is a den
tal searchlight which the operator
may use inside the gaping mouth of the
individual who happens to be in his
power, and ascertain the location of
pain filled cavities -which the patient
would otherwise escape having discov
ered. Another interesting part of the
display is the so-called laughing-gas ap
paratus of all kinds, Dy the use of
which patients are able to smile no

demonstration of the different appara

was extremely pleased with his Cuban
experiences and enjoyed the trip much
more than he had hoped. A usual with
American tourists, Mr. Durst tried to
pick the winners at the jai alai game,
watched the Sunday parade on the
Prado and gazed at the sea waves from
the Malecon.
I was much pleased," said Mr.
Durst today. "Underathe present sys
tem of government I do not think the
frospects of Cuba are as bright as if
were annexed. I believe the edu
cated class and the moneyed class of
people with property are anxious for
annexation, altho they do not come out
openly. I found better weather than
we have here in June."
MERCURY WILL DROP
Weather Man Promises Arctic Tempera*
ture for Tomorrow Morning.
It will be colder tomorrow morning ac
cording to the predictions of the weather
tmreau The sting is taken out of this
announcement, however, by the promise
that the weather will then take a turn
'for the better and the mercury will rise
during the day.
This morning the official thermometer
registered at zero, a drop of 8 degrees
from the morning before, and there has
been little warming up thru the day.
Minneapolis may be cold, but it is tor
rid compared with some places on the
weather map. It is 20 degrees below at
Medicine Hat and Swift Current follows
close behind with 18 degrees below.
The present weather, unpleasant as it
Is, will add greatly to the comfort of Min
neapolis next, summer. In February the
ice men announced that, given a week
more of cold weathei*. they would be
able to put away enough ice to avert
all possibility of an ice famine. They
have had it and if their statement is
right there is enough crystallzed water
on hand to keep everybody and everything
cool thru the dog days.
OPPOSE MONUMENTS
Loyal Legi on Discourages Commemorajt
ing Confederate Leaders.
L. S. Swenson, former Unit ed States
minister to Denmark, made a protest
against the movement for the erection
of confederate monuments, in the course
of a brief talk at the Loyal Legion ban
quet at the West hotel, last evening.
While the people of the south could
not forget the bloody conflict, and no
true man expected it, patriotism would
not be inculcated in future generations
by the raising of monuments in honor
of the confederate leaders and thereby
perpetuating the memory of those who
had sought to disrupt the union. The
sentiments of the speaker were cor
dially approved.
'Captain Henry A. Castle's paper on
"Opdyke's Brigade at the Battle of

McINTYRE STILL IN JAIL
NEW VICTIMS OF SEYMOUB'S
"MODEL YOUNG MAN" ABE
FOUND I N CHICAGO.
Eugene Mclntyr e, the youthful imi
tator of Johann Hock, who is charged
with conducting a wholesale campaign
of wrong and robbery against the
working girls of Wisconsin and Michi
gan from Minneapolis, will haye to re
main in the Menominee, Mich., jail
pending his trial on the charge of mis
using and robbing Barbara Pollock of
that place.
A letter from Seymour, Wis., his
home town, received today by the Min
neapolis rescue agent who ran him
down, says that his people will not bail
him out. A wealthy uncle first came
to the front and offered to put up
the $5,000 bond demanded, bwt on
learning that if released Mclntyre
would be immediately rearrested on a
similar charge, withdrew the offer.
The revelation of Mclntyre's char
acter came as a surprise in Seymour,
where he was regarded as a "model
young an '4 and was a prominent,
church attendant. The letter says:
"The girls here are glad that he has
been exposed. The general verdict is
one of satisfaction. His relatives, with
the exception, perhaps, of the lincle
above referred, to, are willing he should
take his medieine.'' The letter fur
ther says: "He worked some fur deal
ers here good with some skunk skins
he brought from Minneapolis.''
Nothing further in regard to Mcln
tyre, or J. McArthur of Milwaukee, as
he was known here, has developed in
Minneapolis, but the report comes from
Menominee that since his arrest tour
girls have been found in Chicago who
claim to have been deceived and robbed
by him.

SUNSHINE LEGION IS
UNDER SUSPICION
Further trouble is in store for the
Sunshine legion, an organization whose
solicitor left Minneapolis after an ex
pose of its workings was published in
the Sunshine society's column of
Journal on Nov. 12.
According to a dispatch from New
York the charity organization society
of New York is about to issue a general
warning to all important charitable so
cieties in the United States against
the "Sunshine legion" and its two
publications, Sunshine and the Sun
shine Journal.
The charity organization society ha
been on the hunt for these people for
a year. Now it has evidence^ in hand,
and is prepared to move against Mrs.
E. M. Tibbetts. "national president"
of the society, and her companion, Jo
seph W. Floridy, the organizer and
brains of the legion.
The Sunshine legion, as it is gener
ally known, tho the name is sometimes
varied, supports children's homes in
several large cities with the money re
ceived from subscriptions to the Sun
shine Journal, its official organ. Man
ager E. D. Solenberger of the Asso-5
ciated Charities has in his files letters
from the various cities where the legion^
has its homes, which state that tha,
homes are 'either non-existent or else*
are different from the descriptions
given in the paper.
These letters, which come from the
men at the head of organizations shh-|
ilar in scope and standing to the As
sociated Charities, indicate that a heaVy
percentage of receipts from subscrip
tions goes into the administration and
little is directly used for the benefit of
poor children.
