RT. REV. E. R. ATWILL,
Bishop of Kansas City.
Mass meetings in Minneapolis and St.
Paul yesterday afternoon brought to a
close the Episcopal missionary confer
ence which had been held in Minneap
olis for four days. The Minneapolis
meeting in the Auditorium and the St.
Paul meeting in Christ church were
both well attended, and scfme of the
leading churehmen in the country ad
dressed the gatherings.
At the Auditorium Bishop S. C. Ed

ers, all bishops. The first speaker was
Et. Eev. D. S. Tuttle, D.D., bishop of
St. Louis, presiding bishop of the Amer
ican Episcopal church, whose theme was
"Why Should We Present This Church
to the American People?" He reviewed
the history of the church in America,
pointing out the honorable place it had
attained under the" stars and stripes,
and the work it has accomplished. His
address was intensely patriotic and was
interrupted with frequent applause.

CHURCH IS CONSECRATED
Notable Service Held in Gethsemane,
in Which Many Clergymen Join.
REV. IRVING P. JOHNSON,
Rector of Gethsemane Church.
After fifty years of hard work on
the part of pastors and congregation,

place of worship in Minneapolis, is free
from debt. This fact was signalized
yesterday when, in the presence of an
immense audience, the church was for
A church rule forbids the consecra

altho several times in its history Geth

indebtedness, it was not until ten days
ago that all financial obligations were
The service of consecration, one of
the most impressive in the church, was
conducted by Bishop S. C. Edsall of
Minnesota and Rt. Rev. Anson E.
Graves, bishop of Laramie. The ser
mon was preached by Rt. Rev. Arthur
L. Williams, bishop of Nebraska.
The services began when a vested
choir of sixty, followed by twenty of
the clergy, moved down* the central
aisle of the church and paused at the
central entrance as the bishop and his
assistants were admitted from without,
a token that the church was free from
secular claim. The choir, clergy and
bishops then marched down the aisle
chanting a hymn of thanksgiving.
The instruments of donation and en
dowment were presented by E. F.
"Weitzel, senior warden of the church,
and the solemn service of consecration
was read by Bishop Graves.

IS RATS UNDERTAKE
Man Visits Minneapolis to Rid Them
of Pest by Sure Process.
Professional rat exterminating, by
which the largest building may iba rid
of every one of the pests in a few
hours, is the occupation followed by
Daniel Rose of Ciinnati, Ohio, who
is in Minneapolis-' to" make arrange
ments with business houses, hotels and
residences tp undertake this1
them. Moreover, by his process the
removal of the rats is not followed by
the annoyance that i results from the
death of the animals and the decom
position of their bodies within walls
and under floors. Embalming accom
panies the poisoning, and tne day
after Mr. Rose has worked for a few
hours at night in a building the exter
mination is complete. Thereafter, a
little of the poison kept on the prem
ises is sufficient to make the "cure"
permanent. Some of the largest hos
telries and business houses in the twin
cities have used Mr. Rose's extermina
tor for several years, and in these es
tablishments there is no" need of fur
ther services, for there now are no rats
to drive out.

tion a study for twenty years, and his
father has been in the business for six
When a couple of rats set up house

Not only are rats highly destructive
animals, but also they are far more ef

or household pets. Their life under

JOBBERS AFTER f^
A BIGGER FIELD
LOCAL DEALERS TAKE ADVAN-
TAGE OF R. R. EXTENSIONS.
A Well Organized 'Campaign Already
Under Way to Attract Trade from
South Dakota Territory Which Has
Heretofore Been Closed to Them Thru
Poor Railroad Facilities."
With an organized and systematic
campaign, the jobbing interests of
Minneapolis, assisted and backed by the
local manufacturers that do their own
jobbing, are following the recent rail
road extensions in South Dakota and
are establishing Minneapolis as the
buying market for the merchants in this
new flour city territory. Heretofore
Omaha and Chicago have had the built
of the business from the territory now
invaded by Minneapolis. Other cities,
too, have had some of the business and
because of the roundabout railroad
facilities to the present time Minne
apolis has had nothing. Now it is to
be Minneapolis territory lifted clean
and clear from the others.
The territory where the campaigning
is now on, is along the extended lines
of the Chicago & North-Western, the
Milwaukee and the Minneapolis & St.
Louis in South Dakota. Direct ship
ping facilities are now possible to
points that heretofore had to be reached
by routing almost by the very doors
of competing cities. This left no open
ing for Minneapolis dealers and they
have bided their time until a change
of affairs gave them an opening.
Some Rich Territory.
The North-Western is extending into
new territory from Pierre. The Mil
waukee extensions are from Evarts
and Chamberlain and the two roads
tap a rich country especially adapted
to livestock and well settled. This ter
ritory will be directly interested in Min
neapolis because of the Armour market,
now assured, and the common interest
of this country and Minneapolis will
work to the direct advantage of both.
The Minneapolis & St. Louis is tap
ping new rich country also that will
find its best market in Minneapolis. It
has"" an extension from Watertown to
Conde, at which" point two branches, one
from the west and one from the north
west, weet. The grain and stock prod
ucts of all this new country will have
its best market at all time in Minne
apolis, the center of the grain business,
and with the Armour plant, the center
of the stock interests of the great
northwest. The short haul and ample
facilities of the Minneapolis market
will make it supreme.
The trade campaign of the Minneap
olis jobbers will not be an independent
hit-or-miss campaign, but is already
well organized and will be carefully fol
lowed. Co-operation rather than disor
ganization will mark the entire move
ment, and the activity on the part of
the jobbers is expected to work not only
to their interests but to the advantage
of the entire business community.
