Weather Conditions. J*
*kThe
tropical storm over the east gulf
yesterday morning seems to have
changed little in intensity or movement,
and there are light to moderate rains
this morning as far north as Cairo,
Knoxvillo and Asheville, and westward
into Arkansas, but during the past
twenty-four hours there have been rains
as far north as Pittsburg an d' New
TOrk elsewhere in the country there
has been no rain, except at Prince Al
bert and Portland, Ore. The relative
positions of the high pressure over New
England and the lake region and the
low pressure slowly developing over the
Pacific northwest is causing warmer
weather in the lake region, and from
western Texas to Minnesota, Manitoba
and Saskatchewan. There may be in
creasing cloudiness in this vicinity to
night and Wednesday, but no rain is
expected. The tepperature will be
higher Wednesday morning.

RECORD ATTENDANCE
FOR Y. M. C. A. CLASSES
The office force of the T. M. O. A.
was almost overwhelmed last night by
the crowd of young men seeking en
rollment in the night school classes.
Last year was a record breaker, but
the enrollment this fall is almost twice
as large as at the corresponding date
a year ago*
The clasa in ^scientific, salesmanship
opened with even a larger attendance
than was expected. The class organized
on the club plan and elected officers.
L. R. Ryan was made president and
Henry Mees secretary.
Another class that bids fair to be
more popular than ever is the one
business law, taught by Maxil D. Robb.
The courses in electrical engineering,
mechanical drawing and regular com
mercial subjects also attracted many
men.
The enrollments tonight promise to be
as heavy as, or heavier than last night,
as ma ny of the classes hold their first
sessions today. Amo ng the most im
portant classes will be those in real
estate law, architectural drawing, plan
reading and estimating, heating and
ventilating, and English for Scandi
navians.
Other courses open Wednesday night,
notably the automobile school, and still
others on Thursday and Friday, among
which will be advertising, steam en
gineering, vocal and instrumental music,
oratory and advanced mathematics.

BANDIT HOLDS AND ROBS
EZBA FABNSWORTH.
Highwaym an in the Mount Curve Dis-
trict Invades Soy's Tent, Holds
Boy's Father, and Is Probably the
Same Man That Shot at Two Others.
The man who shoots was^ operating
again in the Lowry Hill residence dis
trict last night. To the accompani
ment of revolver shots and the harsh
command of "hands up,'* at least three
men have looked into the muzzle of an
ugly' sixshooter and given up their
valuables. The man who shoots refuses
to argue any question and settles only
on a cash basis.
Ezra Farnsworth, 1414 Mt. Curve
avenue, is the latest victim, and he
was held up just in time last night to
prevent the bandit from entering his
house and searching it for valuables.
The bandit admitted he was in great
need of money last night. Entering the
Fai nsworth yard, the robber went to a
little tent where Mr. Farnasworth's son
was sleeping. Pulling back the flap of
the tent, he looked in. "Say, vou, he
said, I want $25 and I want it quick.
I nefed the money, so get busy."
The young man took the time to say
he didn't have the money, and then
darted out the side of the tent and ran
to the residence of Sampson Child, 914
Kenwood boulevard, for a revolver.
In the meantime Mr. Farnsworth re
turned home, and happened to h^ave just
the required $25 in his pocket. The
bandidt didn't know this, but he took
the chances and went out to meet him.
Mr. Farnsworth was greeted with the
command "Hands up/' which was im
mediately followed by two revolver
shots. The victim had no idea of re
fusing to obey, but stood on his tipties
and allowed the bandit to go thru his
pockets. Taking the $25 and a valu
able gold watch, the robber told his vic
tim to go into the house, and then
darted over a little knoll and disap
peared.
When Mr. Farnsworth's son asked S.
R. Child for a revolver and told what
had occurred, Mr. Child seemed little
surprised, for a few nights before his
son, Sherman W. Child, a university
student, had been held up, apparently
by the same man. was returning
home late when the bandit encountered
him in the same way and took his small
change.
Mr. Child obtained a good descrip
tion of the bad man. was tall, slim
and wore a broad hat well down over
his eyes. He covered the lower part
of his face with a white handkerchief.
The description given by Mr. Farns
worth tallies well with this.
This robber is also supposed to be
the man who shot at Dr. Clarence
Straehauer, 1705 James avenue S, who
surprised him in an attempt to enter
the residence.
Business men living near the haunts
of the bandit are arming themselves
and are taking extra precautions when
locking up for the night. The nerv
ousness has also invaded police head
quarters, and traps are being set for
the man who shoots.

M. & ST. ANNUAL
MEETING IS HELD
Stockholders of the Minneapolis &
St. Louis Railroad company held their
annual meeting today in the office of
Vicepresident and General Manager L.
F. Day, Metropolitan Life building, and
elected three directors. The directors
will at some future time meet for elec
tion of officers.
Directors re-elected were: John E.
Searles of New York, F. H. Davis of
New York, who is treasurer of the com
pany and L. F. Day of Minneapolis,
who is general manager.
A the directors' meeting the ques-(
tion of dividend will be acted upon,
when it is expected $hat the regular
semi-annual dividend of 2 pet cent
on preferred stock will be declared.
N dividends have *been paid on com
mon for some time. Owing to the thoro
ness of the 1906 work it is not prob
able that a terse appropriation will be
ordered for 1907.
The company has added about
$1,000,000 of equipment in the year and
has re-laid about seventy miles with
new steel and the Des Moines & Fort
Dodge line is being ballasted with
gravel. If labor can be secured and
the good weather continues, the com
pany will have laid $1,000,000 worth of
new steel in 1906. This work is mainly
on the Des Moines & Fort Dodge, the
Western and the Pacific divisions, and
some on the Albert Lea division.
WEATHER TO SHIT ALL
TASTES IN SEPTEMBER
Septeniber had its full thirty days
of weather, as called for by the cat
'endar and guaranteed by the weathor
bureau. While the month d'd not shat
ter any of the extreme records made in
the past sixteen vears and recorded in
the weather observatory, it managed
to be different from any other Septem
ber in the record.
A far as temperature was concerned,
the month stuck close to precedents.
Its mean temperature was 65.4 de
grees. The mean for the month in six
teen years is 62 degrees. Its maximum
temperature, 92 degrees, on Sept. p,
fell below the maximum of 96 degrees
scored Sept. 17, 1895. Its minimum
temperature of 43 degrees, recorded on
Sept. 30, was above he extreme mini
mum of 29 degrees on Sept. 30, 1899.
I the matter of precipitation, the
past month beat the mean for Septem
ber in the past sixteeen years bv 1.92
inches, having a total of 5.44 inches.
Only three Septembers in the sixteen
year period exceeded this record.
A for sunshine, the month was per
fectly parceled out. Ten davs were
clear, ten were partly cloudv and ten
were cloudy. On ten davs it rained.
There were seven thunderstorms and
two frosts.

STATE EQUALIZERS HEAR PLEAS
OF ATTORNEYS.
St. Paul and Minneapolis Gas Com-
panies' Lawyers Explain Why Their
Companies Should Not Assessed
at High Figures, and Street Railway
Also Pleads for Leniency.
The state board of equalization de
voted its time today to listening to the
arguments of attorneys as to. why the
present assessments of public service
corporations in Minneapolis, St. Paul
and Duluth should not be increased.
Edward S. Young, attorney general,
and Samuel G. Iverson, sat with the
board.
The St. Paul Gaslight and Electric
company, represented by Pierce Butler,
asked a reduction.
John O. P. Wheelwright had a some
what lengthy statement to make for
the Minneapolis Gaslight company. This
company, he said, has never watered its
stock, which is now $800,000. He asked
indulgence of the board because un
feeling political parties in Minneapolis
have all announced that in 1910, when
the franchise runs out, that they favor
the municipality taking the plant over.
At the election this fall unfeeling vot
ers will cast their ballot on the ques
tion of issuing $1,500,000 in city bonds
for this purpose. He said that in five
years the company's gross earnings had
increased one-third and the taxes have
been doubled. On being questioned, he
admitted the increase in gross earnings
the last year was $100,000.
Speaks for Trolley Company.
For the street railway companies, M.
D. Munn stated that their assessed
valuations were increased 4 per cent
two years ago, and 25 per cent last
year, until now they were considerably
more than $10,000?000 in the aggregate.
The street railway companies last
year paid nearly one-sixth of the per
sonal propert ytaxes of Minneapolis and
St. Paul/' said Mk Munn.
"Every day I walk the streets, I
meet men whose personal property, if
assessed like ours, would raise the as
sessments over $100,000,000."
Mr. Munn showed by figures in pos
session of the board that while the
street railway assessments have been
increased 400 per cent in five years,
their income has increased only 40 to
50 per cent.

The board of tax levy has gone down
the line to meet the popular demand
for a maximum tax levy of 25 mills,
and is going even further. It will cut
and slash and prune so that the rate of
taxation, including the ward tax, will
come under the (lead line, at least in
soem wards.
The state board of equalization cut
the city assessor's valuations of $175,-
000,000 by several millions of dollars,
but the tax levy board intends to stick
to the original plan to go under 26
mills, regardless of the state board of
equalization.
On behalf of the commercial bodies
of the city, W. L. Harris, J. F. Conk
lin and George D. Dayton were present
today to watch the board at work.
Among other items they succeeded
excluding an item of $45,000 for the
completion of the national guard ar
mory. Mr. Harris fought this persist
ently and insisted that the armory com
cissioners could tide over the present
difficulty by other means than depriv
ing the city of much needed improve
ments. Had there been money avail
able, the city could easily loan money
to the board, but the loan could not
be made without greatly crippling the
city in its improvements. This seemed
good sense and the matter was dropped.
The visitors also recommended that
the good roads fund be reduced from
$50,000 to $25,000.
It had been decided to cut out $25,000
for a permanent bathhouse at Seven
Corners, but Alderman Lars M. Rand
had heard of it and came before the
board with blood in his eye. For the
first argument he reminded the board
that none of the proposed improve
ments was for the section of the city
which he represented, and that the ap
propriation was a small one. All parts
of the city had bathing establishments
except Southtown. Mayor Davicf T.
Jones came to the aid of Alderman
Randv and it was agreed to make a
first appropriation. 01 $15,000 for the
house. This (wasi^atisfaetory to the
taxpayers present. i
Among the items which have disap
peared from the estimates is the one
of $25,000 for a stone crusher.
N final action has been taken on
the park board and library board esti
mates. They will receive more money
than last year, but not as much as they
expected.

For the three-quarterly period there is
a gain of nearly a half million over the
corresponding period of last year,
which was a record-breaker. The build
ing permits, with heating, plumbing,
electrical and pther permits, call for
an expenditure of upwards of nine mil

more to hear from. An estimate is of
no value, and all that can be said is
that there is no abatement in the ac

There were issued from the building

September 387 permits, with an aggre

DEYOTED TO ACCURACY
GIFTED NOVEIJST GOES TO ALAS-
KA TO OBTAIN LOCAL COLOR
FOR "KEZANOV."*
Gertrude Atherton, the celebrated
novelist, has just returned from Sitka.
Alaska, a journey few women care to
undertake.
Altho the trip was made during the
vacation season^ it was I no sense a
vacation puting. The author weht there
solely on'business. The rare exceptions
heretofore, when a woman has visited
that out of the way locality, from busi
ness motives, have been for the most
part in benalf of mining, fur or lumber
interests. Mrs. Atherton's mission,
however, was none of these and was de
cidedly unique.
She undertook the long and somewhat
perilous voyage merely that she might
acquire local color for one of the chap
ters of a forthcoming novel and that
such of the book's scenes as are laid
in that picturesque, out-of-the-world
place should be absolutely accurate.
While devotion to accuracy is a rare
trait in the modern novelist, it is one
of Mrs. Atherton's first requisites.
When, several years ago, she was prepar
ing material for her famtms novel, The
Conqueror," she exiled herself from
New York and sojourned for months in
the Danish West Indies in order that
she might absorb the early environment,
surroundings and viewpoint of her hero.
Alexander Hamilton. This act of con
scientiousness was at the time widely
commented on, and was regarded with
wonder in the literary world. Yet its
results far more than justified the labor
involved.
In the present instance Mrs. Ather
ton's even greater sacrifice and effort
in the cause of accuracy and local color
seem destined to win even brighter
laurels.
The novel in whose construction she
made the long voyage to Sitka, is to be
entitled "Rezanov.'' Its hero is the ro
