ASSOCIATED CHARITIES 'BROKE,'
SAYS SOLENBERGER.
Unusual Calls for Relief, and the Great
er Demand on the Public Purse for
Contributions to Other Purposes,
Makes the Problem a Puzzling One.
With demands for relief coming iu.at
the rate of seventy-five a week, and ,with
twenty-five families dependent ujxon
them for their sustenance* the Aefee*
ciated Charities is financially exhausted.'.
Not a cent remains in the visiting
nurse, anti-tuberculosis or general funds
and the June bills are unpaid.
This announcement was made today
by Edwin D. Solenberger, the general
manager. The financial committee, con
sisting of John B. Van Derhp, Charles
S. PiDsbury, Henry L. Moore, Joseph
E. Kingman, George C. Christian,
George A. Brackett and Benjamin
Woodworth, will meet early next week
to consider the situation and issue an
appeal for money with which to carry
on the work.
Two causes have combined to re
duce the association to these straits,"
said Mr. Solenberger today. "One is
the unusual demand for assistance this
summer and the other the numerous
demands made upon our regular con
tributors.
Many Oasea to Care For.
Sickness has been prevalent, and we
have had many cases to look after.
Already the number of families dealt
with this month number more than 300.
Of these, there are twenty-five in which
there is no able-bodied man, which have
to receive oontinuous relief. The de
mand for laborers in the harvest fields,
which offers relief to some classes of
the poor, is of no help here. We have
not had a single able-bodied man in
our office for three months. Those un
der our care are not able to work and
cannot share in the general prosperity.
"On the other hand, those who con
tribute to us have been heavily taxed
for other worthy enterprises. The San
Francisco relief fund, the G. A. R. fund
and the building of several new church
es have cut heavily into our revenue.
The people of Minneapolis are as gen
erous as ever, and that is saying much,
but they have been called on to con
tribute more than ever.
Few Contributors.
"Unfortunately, our list of sub
scribers is not large. Those who con
tribute are liberal but they are nu
merically weak. We must take steps
at once to enlarge our subscription list,
for it is impossible to make repeated
appeals to the same persons. This is
the problem which the finance commit
tee will take up at its meeting next
week. The result ofthis meeting prob
ably will be an appeal for funds. Sum
mer is a poor time in which to raise
money, as the popular impression is
that the poor do not need much care
when the weather is warm and work is
plenty.
Warm weather and work are no aid
to the sick, crippled and aged. It is
these people who have exhausted our
resources, and unless something is done
at once, they will be the ones to suf-
fer." CONFERENCE A SUCGESS

Success of Encampment Depends
How Well Citizens in General Treat
Visittors, Says Wallace G. NyeNo
One Committee Can. Supply Every-
thingAll Should Decorate.
The real success of the Grand Army
encampment depends on the attitude
df the citizens of Minneapolis toward
encampment week visitors while they
are in the city. This is the statement
of Wallace G. Nye, who, as secretary of
the public affairs committee of the Com
mercial club, is probably better in
formed in regard to encampment affairs
than any other man in Minneapolis.
In discussing the coming encampment
Mr. Nye said:
"Citizens of Minneapolis must real
ize that the real success of the encamp
ment is in their hands and not in the
hands of any committee or organiza
tion. The committee has arranged
meeting places, accommodations, pro
grams, and other routine matters, but
the greatest satisfaction to the visitors
will come from the patriotic sentiment
shown by the people. We must be
courteous, give information when it is
wanted and decorate our houses and
places of business. Nothing counts so
much as the way the general public
treats the veterans and the effcampment
will not be a success unless the general
public realizes this fact.
Some Patriotic Duties.
"The tender of rooms for.use during
the encampment is another patriotic
duty. We hope that people are not
renting rooms for the money they will
get from the transaction. Booms should
be tendered with the ide aof accom
be tendered with the idea of accom
ter of civic pride. The city must be in
shape to say: 'Here are good, com
fortable quarters at reasonable rates.
Take them if you want them.'
W. H. Bendell, who has just returned
from a visit to the convention of the
Elks in Denver, is enthusiastic over the
welcome extended to the visitors. He
was particularly impressed with the
way in which nouses and stores were
decorated, and he is of the opinion that
Minneapolis will have to hurry to dec
orate the city as it should be decorated
for the veterans.
Costly or elaborate decorations are
not necessary according to members of
the decorating committee, but every
resident in Minneapolis will be expected
to fly the flag from his residence or
place of business all thru encampment
week.
Call for Commissary.
A circular letter will probable be
issued next week to restaurant and pro
vision men calling their attention to
the nearness of encampment week and
the necessity of making adequate prep
arations for taking care of the hungry
visitors. The committee will encourage
Organizations or individuals wishing to
maintain temporary restaurants during
the week, and it is hoped that enough
eating places will be established in ad
dition to the regular restaurants to care
for all visitors.
Arrangements have been made for a
campfire of colored veterans to be held
at McKinley hall. Western avenue and
Ninth street on Thursday evening, Aug.
16. The committee will also arrange
for headquarters for the colored veter
ans thruout the encampment.
Members of the Vermont association
are. making elaborate plans for the
gathering of the clans from the Green
mountain state encampment week. A
representative of the local association
will be at the Vermont headquarters in
the Nicollet hotel thruout the encamp
ment, prepared to assist the visitors in
securing suitable accommodations.
There will be a reception for Vermont
people in the Hotel Nicollet' on Tuesday
evening, Aug. 14, and members ^bf the
local association will attend as the
guest of the department of Vermont
Woman's Relief Corps. On Fridav af
ternoon of encampment week it is

tion at this outing.

Tho the action of the supreme court

As jails go, this seems to be all right,
and I certainly have nothing to say
of the treatment. I have nothing to
say of my case."
The prisoner is making a strong ef
fort at appearing cheerful and hope
ful, but he is evidently worried and not
at all pleased with the prospect of three
and a half years in the gray walls of
the penitentiary. I have not yet se

he with a grim smile.

REAL ESTATE BOARD IS

The annual summer picnic of the Minneap

members of the board, nearly 100 strong, left
the street railway station at Sixth and Hen

point a Steamer was taken for a tour of both
lakes.

The permits up to last night ag

of year are wholly unprecedented and
the building inspectors' force is more
than dazed with the amount of new
work piled upon them.
An indication of what the record
means is shown by the fact that the
biggest previous July was in 1890 when
the total permits were $898,000.
The total cost of new buildings for
the first seven months of the vear will
aggregate more than $5,700,000.

GENERAL O. O. ANDREWS SEES
NEED OF PROMPT ACTION.
State Forestry Commission Would Have
Newly Elected Members of Minne
sota Legislature Bound to Aid in
Reserve Work, to Preserve Pine and
Other Trees.
General C. C. Andrews, Minnesota
forestry commissioner, asks that mem
bers of the next legislature be pledged
to forestry. He says:
"About all of the original pine in
Minnesota will be cut in the next ten
years, after which we shall be depend
ent for lumber on the Pacific coast.
While, if fires are prevented, the great
er part of cut-over pine land becomes
naturally reforested with various kinds
of trees, yet ogly about 20 per cent of
it becomes naturally well stocked with
pine. Nature must be aided by plant
ing.
"'A large part of our pine lands,
especially where pine was mixed with
hardwood, will be used for agriculture
but there are in scattered localities
8,000,000 acres of rocky, hilly or sandy
hind which should be devoted to for
estry. On such waste land it requires,
on an average, about eighty years for
pine to grow to merchantable size.
Some of this land still belongs to the
United States, but would probably be

ranted to the state by congress for

request. The rest ia owned by private
Earties,
from whom it probably could

"The state now owns 21,000 acres of
forest-reserve land and no more, of
which 20,000 acres were donated by
congress and 1,000 acres by the late
John S. Pillsbury.%. This, if properly
developed, would, for our great state,
be but a small beginning forestry.
The forestry board wants to plant a
portion of -this iand-i with pine and
spruce, and .also "flints to make some
roads thereon* bu$ has appealed in
vain to the legislature for the necessary
money.
Of course the people can "continue
to put off this matter. They "can leave

RATE HEARING NEAR END
RAILWAY AND WAREHOUSE COM
MISSION WILL HEAR ARGU-
MENT AUG. 10:
The state railroad and warehouse
commission will begin Monday the final
hearing in the railroad merchandise
rate matter, and continue the hearing
from day to day until all the evidence
that persons have to present has been
secured. Following these hearings
before the commission. 0. A. Sever
ence will make the'arguments for the
railroads.
"We have between 500 and 600
typewritten pages of testimony," said
ITS. B. Mills of the ^commission to
Journal today. This is all the
testimony received up to date. With
it are exhibits which exceed in volume
the amount of testimony. I think
every member of the commission has
so far personally reviewed all this mass
of evidence and personally digested it.
Just as soon as the final arguments are
made the commission proposes to go
right to work at the evidence in con
sultation and close the case as soon as
possible. It is impossible to say, how
ever, how long it will take. The sub
ject is a weighty one and the testimony
unusually extensive. The commission
has as yet come to no conclusions on
any point.N
"Some time ago we submitted to the
railroads what we were willing to ac
cept in the way of revised merchandise
rates, but the railroads were not satis
fied and so we have gone on with the
hearings. The result is that we now
have much more information than we
had before when we laid our proposition
before the railroads."

SMLIN IS NOT A
liMINEAPOLIS MAN
HE'S AN ORONO CITIZEN,*
TELLS THE EQUALIZERS.
Dr. Philip Mueller Takes Exception to
Tax Boost, as Do Two Other Peti
tioners, and the Line Is So Long the
Board Can't Adjourn.
Thomas H. Shevlin is not a resident
of Minneapolis, and has not been since
June, 1905. This fact was made known
at a meeting of the board of equaliza
tion today in an affidavit by Mr. Shev
lin, accompanying an application for a
cancellation or a personal property as
sessment. His permanent residence is
at Orono, Lake Minnetonka, and the
residence at 129 ,Oak Grove street is oc
cupied only for brief periods 'in the
spring and fall. Mr. Shevlin's assess
ment is placed at $214,000 and he asks
that the entire amount be canceled, as,
he pays personal taxes at Orono. The
matter, with many others, was taken
under advisement.
Dr. Philip Mueller took exception to
having his personal property valuation
raised from $230 to $1,395 in one year
and avowed that such action was un
just. He would stand an assessment of
$1,000, however.
Charles E. Van Barneveld, formerly of
Southeast Minneapolis, but no longer a
resident of this city, writes from Ocean
Park that he has no property assessable
as credits and moreover was not, on
May 1, a resident of this city.
S. C. Tooker & Co., a corporation, in
its statement gave the paid up capital
at $15,000, but represented that it was
actually worth only $1,648.
The Doard had expected to adjourn
today, but the line of citizens who wish
to discuss matters of assessment is still
undiminished. Hence it will remain in
session at least another week, and two,
if necessary. It may be that the
board will De obliged to meet right up
to the last day of grace, which will be

"The people in these little towns are

rich looking hair, by using Newbro's Herpicide, the
ORIGINAL remedy that "kills the dandruff germ."
The presence of the dandruff germ in the scalp causes first, dull, brit-
tle and lusterless hair, with later, dandruff, itching scalp and falling hair.
All of these disagreeable symptoms will disappear, and the hair grow
as nature intended, if the dandruff germ is destroyed and kept out of
the scalp. Pon't wait for chronic baldness for it is incurable.
FOB HOT WEATHBBOn account of its antiseptic and purifying
action, Herpicide is an absolute necessity during the summer months.
Dried sebaceous matter, perspiration and other impurities thrown out by
the sweat glands clog up the pores of the scalp and offer an inviting
field for microbic development. Herpicide opens the pores of the scalp
and keeps it clean, pure and wholesome. It relieves Prickly Heat and
stops itching of the scalp almost instantly.,
I cannot speak too highly of Newbro's Herpicide, It keeps
my hair and scalp in excellent condition."

ADVERTISING IS A GOOD
INVESTMENTOK STATE
better than Mr. Cole, repub
candidate for governor, the ad
vantages derived from -judicious adver
tising of state resources and opportuni
ties. Among those things making for
state development for which he stands,
and which he will emphasize during his
campaign, effective and well-planned
effort to induce immigration into the
state will be among the most impor
tant and the most emphasized. Speak
ing of the greater enterprise or the
Pacific coast states in this particular,
Mr. Cole said today:
What California Has Done.
"In the past twenty years Califor
nia and the Pacific coast states have
probably received more generous and
systematic advertising than any partf
of the United Statesperhaps of the
entire world. The effects of that ad
vertising are striking. During a large
part of that time that section has been
so congested with laboring men that
it has been always difficult, and often
impossible, to secure employment. Many
a laboring man has wasted there all
the money he had saved in vainly seek
ing employementj and finally started
back home penniless. All this time
there has been in Minnesota an unsup
plied demand for farm help at remuner
ative wages.
In every movement to a new coun
try the laboring men are the first to go.
The next to leave are men who rent
farms: the last these who have to sell
their belongings before they can take
their departure. Not only farmers and
farm laborers, but men from every walk
in life and every calling have been in
duced to take up their residence in the
coast states. It is not only that we
have lost large numbers of our citizens,
but hundreds of thousands if not mill
ions of dollars worth of taxable proper
ty has been taken from Minnesota to
the Pacific slope. The same thing is
true of almost every state in the union,
and of many European countries whose
people have gone to swell the popula
tion beyond the Rockies.
Advertising Has Paid.
"Who shall say that there has not
been an ample return for all the adver
tising of that country, for every effort
put forth and every dollar expended in
exploiting its resources. Not only have
the terminal and coast cities been bene
fited, but every inland city and vil
lage, as well as every piece of real
estate, whether town lot or farm land,
thruout the entire region, has likewise
received beneficial results. It may
very well be asked now whether the
time has not arrived when Minnesota
should awaken to the
of the benefits to be derived by
increasing our population. While
these benefits may be felt in a

Be Entries for Efficiency Test Must
According to Regulation.
Printed entry blanks and regulations for the
gasolene efficiency test to be held by the Min
neapolis Automobile club next Saturday are now
ready and can be obtained at the club rooms in
the Placa. Early entries are urged by the con
test committee as there are many details to be
arranged in connection with the race.
The rules gorerning the contest will be fully
explained at a meeting of the club, to be held
some eTenlng early next week. As the rules
are complicated and the violation of any of them
means disqualification, the committee urges that
all entrants gire them their earnest attention.
The same oare is urged upon those who are to
act as observers. All dubious points will be ex
plained at the meeting next week.

one-third of its value, the increased tax
for advertising on $1,000 worth of prop
erty, instead) of being 3 cents would be
less than 1 cent. Is there a doubting
Thomas in the state who thinks that
the general benefits to come to each
$1,000 worth of property will not be
1 cent many times overt As much or
more benefit will come from the general
agitation incident to an effort to secure
immigration as comes from the actual
money invested by the state. The gen
eral benefits to the state last year as a
result of the enactment of the immigra
tion law, cannot be measured by tha
$7,500 invested in advertising its ua
occupied lands. That great benefits
came to Minnesota certainly no man
can successfully deny. The school and
university funds alone received from
$125,000 to $150,000 more from the state
lands sold during the past year, than
they would have received from the
same land had they been sold without
the enactment of the law in question.
Not only was the state benefited by this
increase in the price of its land, but
there was a vast amount of private real
estate sold to men who came here from
other states with the intention of set
tling upon their purchases.
All Pulled Together.
"Nearly every interest in the state
contributed to the success of the en
terprise. The railroads furnished free
transportation to the editors of farm
papers from onr own and other states,
to twin city newspaper men, and to the
representatives of many of our country
papers. They took up the work of ad
vertising as it had never been done be-
fore.^ Local boards of trade procured
maps showing the location of state lands
in their respective localities, and their
relation to schoolhouses, villages, rail
road stations, lakes and rivers, and
gave them general circulation every
where. Editors of agricultural and oth
er journals, who took advantage of this
free excursion, went home to write
column after column, week after week,
praising the country they had visited.
Had the state paid for all the free
advertising it received, from which
there can be no doubt substantial ben
efits resulted, it would have cost many
times the $7,500 invested under the im
migration iaw. Barely ever has a com
monwealth realized so signally such a
large measure of profit as did the state
of Minnesota from th3t slight invest
ment. It cost the newspapers and pe
riodicals which gave the free adver
tising substantially nothing.
BoostDon't Knock.
Grumbling and fault finding against
natural conditions should be condemned
everywhere. Epecially is this true in a
state possessing such marvelous oppor
importance tunities and advantages as does the
state of Minnesota. Few things are
more harmful than a citizen who is
preaching discouragement aiid
larger measure in some localities than thereby influencing prospective settlers
in others there is not a section of the} to take their residence elsewhere. While
state in which the advantage of in- other localities have found advertising
creased immigration will not repay
many fold the amount expended in ad
vertising.
Individual Cost Low.
"We have in this state more than
$900,000,000 of assessed valuation. If
the state of Minnesota were to expend
annually $25,000 in advertising our
state's resources, the tax on a farm or
a stock of merchandise assessed at
$1,000 would be less than 3 centsless
than two postage stamps. As property
in this state is assessed for only about
exceedingly profitable, there is prob
ably no state in the union so favorably
located to realize the large measure
of benefits frorn^ proper and systematic
advertising as is the state of Minne
sota. Nearly all the homeseekers who
are disposed to visit North Dakota or
the Canadian northwest have to pass
our threshhold and go nearly the entire
length of the state. Let us awaken
from our Bip Van Winkle sleep, and let
the world know of the golden oppor
tunities for homebultders which every
where surround us."
