HAVE A PLAN
TWO-DAY OR THREE-DAY TICK-
ETS INSTEAD OF SUNDAY LIMIT
O N BI CROWDS.
Minneapolis retailers, have plans
under way to make the Sunday and
week-end excursions to Minneapolis of
more value to the city and the retail
interests. Every summer the Sunday
excursions bring in thousands of vis
itors, and indirectly help advertise the
eity, but so long as tney are limited to
Sunday, little actual benefit is derived
from the presence of the visitors.
The retailers would like to see the ex
cursions made week-end affairs, with
transportation good from Satur
day to Monday or good for Sunday and
Monday at least. I the visitors can
come in on the regular excursions and
have Saturday or Monday as a shop
ping day in the city, many will take
advantage of the opportunity to trade
in the city and there will be a direct
benefit for all lines of business, hotels,
restaurants and retailers in all lines. I
vis believed that the two-day or three
excursion would be better for the
railroads, as many people would come
who would not care to patronize the
exclusive Sunday excursion, which, in
some districts, is slowly losing favor.
The excursion proposition was dis
cussed the retailers at an interesting
"gathering at the Nicollet hotel last
night. Following an informal banquet
a business meeting was held. Among
the modifications of the Sunday excur
sion suggested was a scheme for mid
week excursions and for taking some
special care of the visitors by offering

NEW MYSTBBY SURROUNDS THE
Agent of Federal Government Wants to
See the Loot Wainwright Took from
Pinault, and Which the Police Turned
Over to Pinault's Agent, Who Took
Where are the Pinault jewels?
This question was revived yesterday
when A. H. Lassow, special employee
of the United States treasury depart
ment visited police headquarters and
asked to see the loot taken from the
handsome Mount Curve avenue resi
dence by Thomas J. Wainwright, now a
prisoner at Stillwater.
Nearly three months ago Mr. Lassow
ran across a clue which he said indi
cated that no duty was paid on some
of the antiques brought to Minneapolis
from Quebec. reported this fact
to the police, but altho the stolen jewels
were held at headquarters, nothing more
was ever heard from the government
officials until yesterday.
Now it appears that altho the work
of the police ended with the conviction
of Wainwright, the treasury depart
ment is not thru with the case. Mr.
Lassow seemed much disappointed when
told that the newels had been taken
away. then asked for a complete

he received a car of coal from his ship

ably short in weight, but on having it
weighed by the railroad officials was
informed that it was seven tons over
weight. Examination of weighing
methods proved that the company's

the car in question had been weighed
by running on first the front trucks

siderable Territory, Unless Duluth
Rates Weer Also Reduced-Winona
Adds to Former Evidence.
Duluth added its weight in the scale
against the proposed reduction of state
merchandise rates today. I fact,
about nine-tenths of the evidence given
the commission has been protest from
various business interests that fear a
disturbance of the existing conditions.
Duluth wholesalers object on the the
ory that the commissions maximum
schedule would be used -by the railroads
as a minimum. I would reduce rates
from the twin cities to many points in
central and southern Minnesota, and no
corresponding reduction would be made
in the rate irom Duluth. The same
complaint has been made by Winona,
and some supplemental evidence was
produced by Winona today.
This afternoon a delegation from
Hastings appeared to favor reductions.
James Manahan of St. Paul presented
the ease as attorney for the Hastings
interests. Three Mankato business men
were present today, M. Currier,
James Spencer and Eugene Patterson.

Roger S. Powell handled the Duluth
case today as attorney for the Com
mercial club and jobbing interests. The
Commercial club committee consisted of
C. F. Rowe of the Marshall-Wells Hard
ware company, W. C. Buchanan of the
St on e-Or dean-Wells company', whole
salers, and F. O. Davison of the Kelley

hardware. Other Duluth witnesses were
B. W. Howe of the last-named concern,
A. H. Comstoek of the Marshall-Wells
company and R. C. Bruen of A
Patrick & Co.. wholesale dry goods.
Would Wipe Out Profits.
Mr. Rowe said the proposed schedule
would work great detriment to their
business and in some cases shut them
out. I would increase the differential
in favor of the twin cties in territory
south of the twin cities, from 1 to 6
cents a hundred. A their profit on
nails is only about 5 cents a hundred,
it would be practically wiped out.
Mr. Buchanan gave some figures on
shipments of groceries. Taking a sam
ple shipment to Sebeka, where the rates
are nouw the same from Duluth as from
the twin cities, he showed that under
the proposed schedule the rate would
be $3.48 from Duluth and $2.97 from
the twin eities. The difference would
amount to 2y per cent of. the cost of
the goods and 20 per cent of their
profit. On the same shipment to Brow
erville there is now a differential
against Duluth of 12 cents, and it would
be, mucreased to 74 cents. I answer
to Commissioner Staples, Mr. Buchanan
admitted that his figures were based on
the assumption thta the railroads would
not deviate from the commission's max
Mr. Howe said that with Duluth al
most out of Minnesota territory, Chi
cago would profit rather than the twin
cities. Speaking of distance tariffs,
he said that because of Duluth's posi
tion on the lakes, if rates all over the
country were made on a mileage basis,
all jobbing houses Minnesota would
be at Duluth.

talk on the damage the new schedule

TO PAY FRISCO LOSSES
Yesterday's dispatches told of harsh
treatment to be accorded to nineteen
well-known fire insurance companies
which had not filed lists of their Sa
Francisco policy holders within the
time demanded by Insurance Commis
sioner Wolf of California, nor given
notice of an extension of time for
filing proofs of losses. Accirding to
the commissioner, the state would pro
ceed to# revoke the licenses of these
companies for doing business in Calls
fornia and forfeit their bonds of $2,000
in each case.
The Northwestern ITire and Marine
Insurance company of Minneapolis ap
peared on the list, and while the threat
ened action of the California official
does not in any way reflect on the cred
it of the company, its officers feel that
the matter is being: handled too sum
marily. Otto O. Tollefson, secretary
and manager of the company, said to
day that it was* only yesterday that
their California agents were notified to
furnish the lists of policyholders. A
previous demand was made on the home
office less than ten days ago, and work
had* already been begun on the lists
when Wolf's untimatum was delivered.
"W^ have all along expected to sup
ply all necessary information bearing
on San rrsncisco losses," said Mr. Tof
lefson today. "There had been a little
delay because of my absence from the
city when the lists were first demanded,
but we have never given the California
authorities any reason to think that we
would place the slightest obstacle in the
way of a speedy and fair adjustment of
whatever losses we may have incurred
thru the great fire. W are abundantly
able to take care of all obligations and
that being the case it would be the ut
most folly for us to do anything but
the right thing, and we know wh at that
is as well as anybody. The lists of

Evangelical Lutheran church. Twenty
eighth street and Garfield avenue.
The Rev. A. J. D. Haupt of St. Paul,
the retiring president of the svnod,
sounded the keynote in his annual ad
dress today and gave an idea of what is
coming. Dr. Hai-pt was Minnesota's
representative at the National Divorce
congress held in Washington last Feb
ruary, and after alluding to this honor
bestowed upon bim and upon the
church by Governor Johnson, he said:
"The church is and should be deeply
interested in this great subject. It
should be given an opportunity to speak
foi the holiness of matrimony. It is
tiuly appalling that while England is
said to have granted only 800 divorces
in the last year, this great, free coun
try of ours is annually divorcing more
than 70,000 persons. What a travesty
on holy matrimony! Bu I am more
firmly convinced than ever that the
cure for this great evil is not in the
divorce court so much as in the, safe
guards to be thrown around marriage
itself, and as the ehurch speaks thru
1 er representative bodies, I hope that
this synod will express itself firmly and
forcibly upon the subject."
There are many other members of
the synod who feel as stronglyupon the
subject as does the president, and there
will undoubtedly be some interesting
ejpressions of opinion, and probably
some strong resolutions passed next
Friday afternoon, when the program
cblls for a doctrinal discussion of
"what protections and safeguards the
church and the state place upon mat
Church to Take Action.
The church is fundamentally opposed
to divorce and there will be a move to
pass a law forbidding pastors of the
church from performing the marriage
service for divorcees. Dr. Haupt, in
discussing his position on the question,
said: "We are unalterably opposed to
divorces and agree with the lawyers
who think the evil should be corrected
IU the courts. W also agree with the
doctors who take the view that the cor
rection should come the safeguards to
thrown about marriage. Work
either of these directions would accom
plish good and we believe in working
along both lines."
The synod was formally opened this
morning. President Haupt delivered
his annual address, in which he showed
the wonderful growth of the synod,
that has been increased by six congre
gations in the past year. dwelt
upon the needs of the various churches,
the great work being done and to do,
and the national features of the church
work. The treasurer's report showed
the synod to be in good financial con
