Engagement Is Cancelled Because of
Death of Orator's Mother.
Eugene Debs will not lecture a
the Auditorium this evening.
Members of the Ladies' Auxiliary of
the Brotherhood of Locomotive Fire
men, under whose auspices Mr. Debs
was coming, this morning received the
following telegram, dated at Superior,
Wis., where Mr. Debs spoke yesterday:
"Qalled home by death of mother.
Please cancel engagement. Profound
regrets. E. T. Debs."
The women of the auxiliary had done
much work in connection with the en-proof:
jjagement of Mr. Debs and their disap
pointment is keen. They feel, how
ever, that if there is one ex6use on
earth that should iustify a man in
breaking an engagement, Mr. Debs has
that excuse.
While no arrangement has been made
for another date for the lecture, it is
presumed by the members of the auxil
iary that Mr. Debs can come soon, prob
ably within two weeks. Purchasers of
tickets are asked liold their tickets
as they will be good for the lecture
whenever it is given.

Minneapolis policemen and firemen
have not been behind the business inter
ests and hnudreds of generous contribu
tors and workers in the California re
lief movement. The fund is more than
$1,800 larger thru their efforts in the
sale of tickets for the theatrical and
Bcosevelt benefits end from their per
senal subscriptions.
Chief Canterbury of the fire depart
ment today turned over to Treasurer E.
W. Decker of the California Belief
fund, $469. Of this amount $274 is do
nated bv the firemen themselves by per
sonal contributions, and $175 is from
the sale of tickets for the Friday bene
fit at the Metropolitan.
Chief Doyle of the police department
has turned over a total of $1,357 to the
treasurer. The members ox tb.e force
by personal subscriptions raised $184
for the fund. Ticket sales for the
benefits amounted to $1,173, of which
$381 was from the Roosevelt benefit,
and $792 from the benefit at the Metro
politan.
The total amount secured for the
fund thru the generosity and hustle of
the two departments is $1,826, of which
$478 is in personal donations. The regirl.
turns from the police" department are
complete, but three firehouses are yet
to be heard from. Final returns from
the Eoosevelt club benefit are not in
yet, but the benefit will net between
il,250 and $1,500 for the fund. The
Metropolitan benefit will run to $1,500
when complete returns are in. Ninety
five ticket stations had tickets on sale
and not all have been heard from.
The Cash in Hand.
The amount of the fund in cash ac
tually in the hands of Treasurer Deck
er is $60,231.47. The fund closes to
night and all returns from outstanding
pledges, benefits and other sources and
additional subscriptions must be in to
be counted. After today no additional
subscription from any source are to- bo
accepted.
W. Y. Chute, representing the execu
tive committee in California, tele
graphed Chairman W. C. Edgar today
from Los Gatos, Cal. He says: "Your
messages received. Send flour and bills
of lading to Dr. Devine direct."
No mistake was made in sending
flour as the Minneapolis relief, as has
been shown by Mr. Chute's messages.
Fifty-five cars are on their way across
the continent to the stricken districts.
Ten more were ordered Saturday and an
additional order may be placed today
or tomorrow, the entire Minneapolis
fund being used in this way.

SAVED PROM DEATH
BY GIRL COMPANIONS
Heroic promptness on the part of her
companions, Olga Parker and Eleanor
Davis, saved Mabel Olson, a 16-year-
old schoolgirl living at 106 Arthur ave
nue, from death in thirty feet of
swiftly running water above the.upper
government dam yesterday afternoon.
The three girls were strolling along
the river bank, and on reaching the
dam decided to cross over to the west
shore on the masonry and its connect
ing footbridges. They were on a three
foot plank walk without a guardrail
when a gang of boys on the bank
started to throw stones at them. Step
pmg Ijacls. a~v"oioL a missile -wtiicli
came uncomfortably close, Mabel Olson
slipped from her narrow footing and
fell into the river.
Death by drowning in the depths of
the thirty-foot head of water above
He dam or death. being dashed
against the apron at the foot of the
water's mad leap over the brink
seemed the only alternatives for tho
The terrified spectators on the
bank were too far away to render as
sistance and the boys who had caused
the accident and were rushing to the
rescue had small chance of reaching
the girl in time to save her.
In this crisis the two young girls
"who were lier companions acted -with.
courage and promptness. With no
thought of her own danger, one leaned
from the narrow bridge and caught the
drowning .girl by her hair and under
her chin while the other clung to the
resouer's sltrrts and nelped her keep
her precarious footing on the slippery
plank. Without any assistance, they
drew Miss Olson from the water and
helped her to the shore.
Fully a score of Sunday afternoon
strollers witnessed the rescue from the
bluff and cheered the Davis and Parker
girls as they supported their drenched
companion to the bank. Miss Olson
is no worse for her fright and drench
ing and was able to appear at school as
usual today.
PARK BOARD WILLING
TO SPRINKLE HENNEPIN
An effort is being made to arrange
some sort on an agreement between
the park board and the city council
for the care of Hennepin and Lyndale
avenues during the summer.
The park commissioners want nothing
to do with either street and take the
position that their authority is at an
end. They construe the decision of
Judge IJcdt to mean that the board had
a right to vacate Hennepin avenue and
that it has been legally vacated. Conse
quently, they can* not understand
whd
the aldermen1
should ''expect the boar
to contuiu sprinkle- "that thorofare.
The residents along Hennepin avenue
who were behind the court proceedings
will undoubtedly appeal to the supreme
court, but the park commissioners are
confident that their position, will
conclusively sustained by higher court.
There is, however, no intention of
being arbitrary and the members of
the board have expressed a willingness
to assist the city in caring for the thor
ofare without conceding that there is
any claim upon that body. While the
board is unwilling to assume the re
sponsibility of sprinkling the street, it
will, aa a matter of compromise, supply
the funds until the case has been ad
judicated in the supreme court.
It is expected that the aldermen of
three wards interested in the vacated
parkway will eventually accept this of
fe r, altho tbgy prefer leave the park
board in cnurge while the court pro
ceedings are on.
COAL DEALERS SUFFER
BECADSE OF STRIKE
Minneapolis coal men are somewhat
anxious today as a result of the reports
of the proposed strike of the longshore
men. The longshoremen's strikes are
almost annual events but at present
they are most inopportune as far as the
coal men are concerned.
With the coal strike in the east
rn coal fields the coal situation i the
northwest is critical at best. Thirty
vessels, loaded at eastern ports two
months ago, are arriving at Duluth and
Superior. The cargoes are needed, but
it will be almost impossible to handle
them with any sort of convenience and
speed if the longshoremen go out, de
claring a strike and blockade of the
docks.
By pulling every possible wire, the
coal companies are securing some new
mined coal in western Pennsylvania and
West Virginia to be shipped as fast as
Eandlers'ports
ossible over the lakes. With the
strike at shipping and re
ceiving1
the shipments -wil "b
greatly delayed, fewer trips can be
madej)y the boats and less stock can
be accumulated at the ljead of the lakes.
JTTvTENILE DELINQUENTS*
All those who are interested in the
administration of the iuvenile court
iaw and in the creation of a permanent
commission to carry out the purposes
of that law, are to meet at
Dayton

at 6 o'clock. Both ladies and gentle

that those who expect to attend tele

range for their accommodation at the

a moderate price. The meeting is called
at this hour for the convenience of
many business people, and a large atten
dance is desired. Reports from commit
tees on the work of the juvenile court

BOSSISM ISSUE AT
ST. PAUL'S POLLS
V0TEES TO CHOOSE BETWEEN
SMITH AND HOFFMAN.
Election Sa at Hand. After a Cam-
paign Marked by the Expenditure of
Thousands and the War of Republi-
cans on "Cardinal Dick" O'Connor,
Dubbed the Real Mayor.
:m
Voters of St. Paul will tomorrow de
cide whether bossism will continue to
hold the city government in abject sub
jection, or whether the city will ^join
hands with up-to-date municipalities
thruout the country and throw off the
grip of the boss.
Both sides believe they will be vic
torious, the democrats under the leader
ship of Eichard T. O'Connor, mayor de
facto in the eyes of all the faithful, lay
ing claim to a majority of 1,500, and
the republicans under the banner of
Luis G. Hoffman, asserting that he will
have at least 2,500 votes to spare.
Robert A. Smith, the record-holding
mayor of St. Paul, appears on tho of
ficial ballot as the democratic nominee,
ut that is a far as it goes. Demo
crats do not nesxtate state that i
voting for Smith, they are really cast
ing a ballot for O'Connor and every
office-holding member of the party and
all those who ever intend to hold office,
members of the executive committee,
ward, heelers and precinct boosters, bow
and scrape before the real head of St,
Paul democracy.
Bossism and Of
fhe
Connor.
The republicans are alive to the fact
that the real issue in the present cam
paign is Bichard T. O'Connor and the
record he has made during the past six
years of uninterrupted supreme power
in municipal government His party
has held all the municipal offices except
two municipal judgeships, and no re
sponsibility can be shifted to the op
position. All other issues have been
relegated to the rear and Mr. Hoffmann
a nd his associates on the republican
ticket have made war on bossism the
most prominent feature of the cam
paign.
The democrats have banked upon the
iresent prosperity of the city to offset
republican charges and ascribe the
activity in real estate and building
operations th wise and beneficent
governmenttomade
possible by Mr.
'Connor and the city officials he
elected two years ago. They do not
deny his overlordship some have even
sprung his name as the next candidate
of the party for mayor. Mr. O'Connor
does not care, however, for the job, but
should he win in the present fight jjt jLs
said that next fall he will be after
the position of clerk of courts, which
carries about $20,000 in fees, a position
much more commensurate with his prom
inence. This feature of the campaign
is being watched with considerable ap-
E-
rehension by his opponents, for while
'Connor has been able to control the
city, he has had little success in the
county.
Wide Open Town.
At present St. Paul is a wide-open
town. Mo,st of the saloonmen, having
thrown away the keys to their saloons,
make no pretension of closing from one
Monday morning to the following Mon
day morning. Women frequent saloons
as freely as men and minors can set
liquor as easily as grayhaired men.
Concert halls and winerooms of the low
est type prevail and blind pigs are
scattered turnout the city. Gambling in

Our Own Workshops
Among our esteemed contemporaries, the J_
retail clothing merchants of this country,
there are several that design and cut their
garments.
After that, they give out the goods, to
outside tailois, who manufacture them .in
their living rooms or shops on a contract basis.
So far as we know, ours is the only retail -i
clothing house that after designing and cut
ting the garments, finishes them all under
one roof. We believe we easily hold our own
in the matter of right styles. Suits $i 5 to $30.

Republican Claims.
The republican managers claim they
will carry their ticket thru in at least
six of the eleven wards, the first, sec

enth wards and have a fighting chance
in the sixth and the eighth. If they
do this they will secure control of the
board of aldermen, which at present
stands ten to one in favor of the demo
crats, and there is no doubt that if the
head of the ticket wins, he will carry a
majority of the candidates for the as

APRIL WAS 1 BUST
MONTH FOR BUILDERS
Building operations in Minneapolis
appear to be in a remarkably flourish'.^,
ing state. April figures up to noon to
day show that the permits issued will
aggregate an outlay of $888,000. While
this is not a large a the total o*
April of last year, the difference is ex
plained by the fact that last year's
figures included the permit for the Se
curity bank building, estimated to cost
$500,000. There is no building of this
size S"well the month's total this year
For the same reason the totals for the
first four months of the year are less
than those for the corresponding period
of last year. For the first four months
of 1905 the building permits aggregated
$3,075,000, as compared with $2,614,000
for the first four months of 1906.

UNKNOWN HAN KILLED
BY MILWAUKEE TRAIN
An unknown man, apparently 3'
years old and well dressed, was killet
by a freight train about 10 o'cloci
this morning on the Milwaukee road
few miles south of Mendota.
About 9 o'clock the man, who wa:
idling on the platform of the Mendoti
station, asked the trainmen in chargi
of a south-bound freight train if hi
could ride with them to Farmington
saying that he could not get on thi
passenger train which his partner ha
taken.
It is supposed that he got on thi~
train and that he fell between two car
sad was ran -over- unnoticed by th
trainmen. The engineer of a tiorth
bound train later saw the Tod
tween the rails, but he was so clo*
upon it that he was unable to stop tin
train until he had run over the body
The trainmen stopped and gathered
the remains, which had been ball\
crushed, and took them Mendota
where they were turned over to tin
coroner of Dakota county.
