P. T.Bannan, for the last season
business manager of the Auditorium,
returned today from a stay of six
weeks on his Wisconsin farm, looking
the part. Mr. Bannan will start for
New York next Tuesday, and for the
coming theatrical season will be in ad
vance of the western company present
ing "The Lion and the Mouse."
The play ran all of last season at
the Metropolitan, New York, having
recently finished the 300th perform
ance. Old playgoers of discriminating
judgment unhesitatingly declare the
play the best produced in recent years.
The offer to Mr. Bannon is particu
larly flattering, and, as the wesitern
company will probably be one of the
-best on the road, he is accepting the
congratulations of many friends. The
play will be given here, probably early
in the season.
Ollie Alger, who was associated with
Mr. Bannan in the management of the
Auditorium, will accompany him to
New York.

As a distributing' point for fruit

fruithouse by the Rock Island road.

of fruit in winter* The Rock Island

It will stand at Eleventh avenue and
Fourth street, abutting the present
freight warehouse. It will be the
height of two stories, 300 feet long, 75
feet wide and will have three tracks,
with a total capacity of eighteen cars.
Occupancy will be given Dec. 1.
The house will have the latest type
of steam-heating system to keep the
fruit warm in winter and to take the
frost out of cold cars before loading
Much fruit will be distributed, to the
northwest from Minneapolis, which has
formerly been forwarded from Kansas
City. In winter deciduous fruit is
shipped from California by the south
ern route as a protection from the
frost. Kansas City has had the advan

ta has lacked accommodations, which
will now be provided.
Fruit is often sent "on consignment"
in the summer and is then auctioned to
small dealers in -the yards. The Rock
Island trading will be done from the
cars in the fruithouse. Each track in
the house will be an unloading track,
which will facilitate unloading.

That the Minneapolis real estate
board is composed of "live ones" was
evidenced by action taken today on
plans to promote the interests of the
city and incidentally to build up the
real estate market. Following the sug
gestion made in The Sunday Journal,
the executive committee made an ap
propriation to advertise the announce
ment that the baord would pay the rail
road fare of otsiders ho come to
Minneapolis and buy real estate. The
idea is to use the papers in well-to-do
communities over a large area and it is
believed that the novel offer will at
tract lively inquiry from many sources.
Details of the plan will be worked out
with a view to making it self-sustain
ing and close tab will be kept upon
The board is discussing a plan also
for moving pictures to represent stir
ring street scenes incident to the G. A.
R. encampment showing that Minne
apolis is also a "live one." Represent
atives of the picture company will be in
Minneapolis Saturday.
The Red Men of the state will trail

Third district and a meirifter of the St
Peter tribe, is to deliver the address of
welcome. The citizens of St. Peter have
raised $1,000 to spend in entertaining the
Red Men the two days they are in the
town. Minneapolis and St. Paul will send
large delegations, which will go to St.
Peter in special cars.

(Additional G. A. R. news on Page 4.)
Saturday morning will find every
thing in Minneapolis ready for the en
tertainment of the fortieth national en
campment of the Grand Army of the
Republic. All plans are complete.
Everything for the care and comfort of
the visitors has been anticipated and
provision made. These plans will be'
put into effect Saturday when the ad
vance guard of the encampment, headed
by Commander-in-Chief James Tanner
and his party, will arrive.
Up to the present time headquarters
for all encampment activities has been
in the office of the Commercial club
public affairs committee in the Commer
cial club. For encampment week the
-headquarters of all committees will be
at 502 Hennepin avenue, in one of the
ground floor stores of the West hotel.
Secretary Wallace G. Nye of the G. A.
R. committees, who has had most of
the work in charge during the months
of preparation, and all encampment
committees will be at headquarters.
Each Department Represented.
Each of the active committees in
charge of a certain department of the
encampment work will have a desk in
headquarters, and the chairman or some
members of the committee will be in
charge. In addition, the quarters will
be used for rest and information quar
ters for the benefit of visitors. All
orders relative to the work of care and
entertainment will come from the gen
eral headquarters. One active commit
tee, that on parade, will have headquar
ters in room 201 Andrus building.
Accommodations bureaus, rest and in
formation rooms, information booths
and registry stations have been defi
nitely located. There are to be three
general accommodation bureaus, where
visitors who have not reserved rooms
will be assigned to quarters in private
houses, hotels, boarding houses, etc. One
will be in a large tent at the union
station on High street. Anotheri wilUl be

pose. In each will be a clerk who will
circulars with maps and detailed direc
tions for finding any point of interest
in the city will be destributed free from
these booths. During the parade two
additional booths, one at Nicollet and
Tenth and one at Park and Tenth, will
be tstablished.
Guides for Strangers.
The guide service will be operated in
connection with the information booths.
The guides will be stationed at the
booths and other points where they will
be needed. The groups of guides sta
tionedat each booth will be under the
immediate supervision of the informa
tion man. At his discretion they will
go out with persons who may become
confused or who are in need of assist
ance. Special attention will be paid
to giving old people the benefit of the
guide service. EVERY ROOM NEEDED
The committee on accommodation
wishes to call the attention of all who
have registered their rooms to the im
portance and necessity of co-operating
with the committee.
There is no occasion for alarm be
cause rooms have not been assigned as
yet. Comparatively few reservations
are made ahead and the bulk of the
business will come when the visitors
arrive. There is little doubt that
every room will be needed.
Tho committee also asks that in case
any rooms listed with the committee
are rented that they be notified at once
that the listed room may be cancelled.
This is done to avoid sending visitors
to rooms already reserved.
Maine Open House.
The people from Maine sent word to
W. R. C. headquarters yesterday that

Nothing Serious in the Result, but the
Hairbreadth 'Scape and Attendant
Circumstances Were Like the Quips
of a Kansas TornadoCalhoun Peo
ple See Alderman Walker.
His wagon hurled from the street
railway tracks where they cross West
Thirty-second street, Joseph Rackman,
driver for the Sterling Laundry com
pany, had a tornado-like experience late
yesterday. He drove across* the tracks
just as a Minnetonka car had passed,
and failed to see a workcar approach.
The workcar hit tho wagon and cut the
horse loose. The wagon, badly shat
tered, landed, bottom-side up, in the
street. Rackman was inside. When he
emerged he found his right trousers'
leg rent, seven cuts on his face, and
his collar gone. Rut his necktie was in
just as good a knot as ever, and his
eye-glasses still straddled his nose, un
broken. The horse had run away, but
was captured on Calhoun boulevard.
This is the third accident on the
street railway right-of-way between
Thirty-first and Thirty-fourth streets.
Bessie Lawrence was severely injured
by a workcar on the Thirty-fourth
street crossing July 6, and Mrs. Mary
Johnson was seriously hurt Monday
morning on the same crossing. The girl
is recovering from her hurts. Mrs.
Johnson, however, is still in precarious
condition at the Russell hospital, 3100
Hennepin avenue. She recovered con
sciousness early today, only to go into
Beyond Thjrtv-first street the com
pany owns its right-of-way, running
thru the middle of the block instead of
the street. The tracks are in an unusu
al place and as the right-of-way is nar
row the approach of the cars is not
readily observed.
These circumstances, it is asserted,
make the crossings at Thirty-second,
Thirty-third and Thirty-fourth street
dangerous. Residents in the district
are apprehensive of more serious acci
dents unless precautions are taken.
It was generally supposed that there
was a speed limit on streetcars, but
this# is not the case. The old horsecars
ordinancesmade the maximu.m speend on th
street six miles an hour Whe the
electric ordinance was passed it con
tained a clause requiring the companv
to maintain a rate of speed "not less
than eight miles an hour." In othei
words there is no rate of speed at
which the cars may noj be run.
Alderman Piatt B. Walker has been
urged by several of his constituents to
take a hand, and he has suggested that
the interested residents select a delega
tion from among their number to wait
upon the street railway officials. He
said today:
"Something must be done as soon as
possible. Either the cars must be
slowed down in these three blocks or
a watchman must be stationed at Thir
ty-second, Thirty-third and Thirty
fourth streets. From what I hear from
that part of the ward, the people are
greatlv exercised and are fearful that
their children will be caught by the
Minnetonka cars. I hope that the
street railway company will take some
favorable action when the matter is
presented to them, but if not, the situ
tion can probably be relieved thru the
city council."
%?&? Mdr^rt^S ?^Jo_him bythe Northwestern Lif_
Dr. J. F. Force, who is now at Pasa
dena, Cal., by his attorneys protested
today to the board of equalizatiop
against an assessment of $100,000 on
ci edits. The statements of the amounts
Insurance company, he said, had been
"grossly exaggerated by the public
press." Moreover, he declared that he
had lost by unfortunate speculation and
that his credits did not exceed $7,500
in value.
Nelson Morris & Co., thru an attor
ney, informed the board that it was op
erating a line of refrigerating cars and
in the course of the business had an
agency in Minneapolis. Its property
in this city, outside of real estate, is
valued at $9,250, hence the assessment
of $20,000 was un-just. It was argued
that the city board had nothing to do
with the company. The various ques
tions raised were taken under advise
H. F. Douglas, a grain dealer, did not
consider that he had any credits that
were taxable. He had $5,400 in his
account at a bank, but owed the same
bank $10,000.
L. S. Gillette declared that he had
aid personal property assessments in
for the last twelve years,
altho during all that time he was a
legal resident and had voted in Excel
sior. He paid the local tax here be
cause he thought that it was right, but
he could not stand for an assessment
of $50,000 for credits.
It appeared from competent evidence
that the Northern Cheese company had
never materialized as a corporation, and
its assessment was canceled. The board
also canceled the assessment against
the estate of the late Dr. Hugh Nelson.
The Northern Malleable Iron com
pany of St. Paul has purchased from

general take steps to wind up the af
fairs of the Minnesota Mutual Casualty
company The company is charged with
failing to observe the state law th\t a
reserve of $5,000 must be maintained, the
company having on hand at present but
$687 in cash. Jan. 1 the company had
on hand $11,182.20. Since it has received
$67,083 08 from member's. Its income
from all other sources was $2,211. It ha
since paid to members $24,893.20 and its
expenses have been $54,371.56.
An interesting featuie of the case is
that the company's president, Bernard A,

Souvenirs All Day
Lured by the high wages offered for
harvest hands, the laborers employed
on the various building operations in
Minneapolis are "pulling their
freight in droves. Some aie drawn
to the west by the hope of making more
money, but with the rest it is a plain
case of wanderlust.
Eighty men left one job yesterday
with the intention of going to the har
vest fields, and the experiences of other
contractors and foremen is similar. The
size of the crew at night is no cri
terion from which to judge the number
of men who will answer the call of the
