Hundreds of School Children and Willmar Citizens Greet James J. Hill at Depot. James J.

The train was late, but the hundreds of people who had gath ered at the depot to see the famous railroad magnate waited patiently until at last the special pulled in from the south. Mr. Hill appeared on the platform of his private car at once, and gave an impromptu speech, in which he regretted that the train was late, thereby prevent ing him from spending as much time as he wished in,Willmar, and he also promised to come some time and spend an afternoon here in or der to get acquainted with the business people and to find out what the Great Northern might do to make Willmar bigger and better. Mr. Hill was just returning home from a lecture tour, and he was visibly tired. He was as good natured as ever, though, and made everybody feel good by his happy and cheerful remarks.

To the Men's League of the Pres byterian church at Willmar: Gentlemen:— The resolutions adopted by your league were received by this com mittee and read at a meeting this afternoon. While we appreciate that the ac tivities of your league are directed with the idea of advancing the moral welfare of the city, we be lieve your action in passing these resolutions and publishing the same abroad was not only ill-advised as injuring the reputation of our street fair and the good name of the city,, but positively unjust in the damaging reflections which its conclusions direct upon the charac ter of the members of the street fair committee. We resent with all our strength the imputation contained in said resolutions that our committee should have knowingly engaged, abetted or permitted any* immoral shows or gambling institutions at the Willmar street fair. Our con tract with the carnival company ex pressly stated that none but moral shows or attractions were to be furnished. If anything unseemly was brought here under cover of the carnival troupes or if the hun dred odd people whom they carried included bad characters, no one de plores that fact more than the members of the street fair commit tee. We feel certain, however, that neither the city nor county authorities would Have permitted such practices as charged to operate had such been brought to their at tention. The street fair committee certainly did not have the power, even if so disposed, to suspend city ordinances or state laws. As far as we know, there were no shows or attractions here that were not per mitted at the state fair grounds and CHANGES IN VALUATION Minnesota Tax Commission Raises Valuation of County Classes affected by Change.

August Anderson, aged 63, and Mrs. Thrine H. Lande, aged 50, of Willmar, Minn., were married at 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Claus Madsen 1601, Virginia street, by Rev.

Mr. Anderson's many Willmar friends congratulate and join in wishing him and the lady of his choice all kinds of happiness. Monday Afternoon Club. The afternoon of Monday, Oct. 4, was very pleasantly spent by the club ladies at the home of Mrs. Gates. Many topics of interest were given and discussed, the books were located and exchanged, the secretary and treasurer gave very gratifying reports of the year's work and the financial condition of the club, and then the president introduced the subject of the club's annual gift to the library, which was very satisfactorily settled by the ladies deciding to present a beautifully bound volume of March's Thesaurus. Among the many delighftul gifts already presented to our public li brary by the Monday Afternoon club none will be more helpful than this "Thesaurus Dictionary of the English Language." It is the lat est compilation of the most instruc tive information and will be inval uable to students and all patrons of WILLMAB, MINNESOTA, WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 6, 1909. PRICE 5 CENTS no criticism or condemnatory reso lutions have been published regard ing that fair although dozens of churches were .represented on the grounds. As to the suggestions for the fu ture, we sincerely trust that the in terest manifested by the men's league will continue active until next street fair. The members of the street fair association are elect ed at a public meeting held each year. When next year's commit tee chosen there is nothing to prevent the men's league from tak ing an active part and selecting such of their members on the street fair committee as are willing to donate their means and energies for several weeks to the end that the street fair be made a credit to the city. And we are certain that if they should see fit to do this the undersigned will be willing to give them the benefit of the doubt when the chronic fault-finders make their complaints or if anything unforseen happens to mar the occasion. Respectfully yours. W. J. Pinney E. C. Wellin Hans Gunderson 0. R. Berkness Victor E. Lawson A. E. Rice D. N. Tallman C. B. Carlson H. S. Peterson. the library a veritable storehouse of knowledge.

Everybody is invited, admission 25 cents. The Willmar foot ball team played Litchfield last Saturday af ternoon. The score was 17 to 0 in favor of Litchfield. The backfield and the line of Litchfield out weighed our men by several pounds. Trie features of the game were the line bucking of Bierman of Litch field, and the tackling of Smith and Nyquist of Willmar. Willmar tried a few forward passes but only two worked. Willmar gained most effectively through line plunges. They worked a series of plays which threw Litchfield right off its feet. The game was refereed by E. L. Udell of Willmar and Mr. Martin dale of Litchfield officiated as um pire during first half and Mr. Krucher of Litchfield during second half. The second half was much more devoid of arguments between the officials than the first. The time of halves was 25 and 20 min utes. Wheeler and Hengster acted as lines men. Goes to Howard Lake. The M.

The public improvement commit tee of the Commercial club have filed the following report to be pre sented to the club at its next meet ing. The undertaking of attempt ing to inspect and score all the well kept premises in the city of Will mar four times during the season was an extensive one which entailed more work on the committee than many suppose. There can be no doubt that the object of the club in offering these prizes to provide an influence towards improved appear ance of our city has been accom plished. The mere fact that the premises have been inspected every month have had a stimulating effect among householders to keep their premises in good trim even if there was no prize in view. The report follows: REPORT OF WELL KEPT PRE- MISES. Willmar, Minn., Oct. 4, 1909. To the Commercial club of Willmar: Gentlemen: On May 11, 1909, the Willmar Commercial club offered a series of cash prizes to be awarded by the Public Improvement committee at its discretion for the best kept pre mises among the householders of the city, the total amount of such prizes to not exceed fifty ($50) dol lars. The prizes were apportioned as follows: $10 for the best kept premises, whether by hired garden er or otherwise $40 to be divided among those who did not hire any work done on their premises, di vided into five prizes of $15, $10, $7, $5 and $3.00. Your committee has made four tours of inspection this season and have carefully scored on the five features of general appearance, flowers and shrubs, lawn, boulevard and backyard. These inspections were made once each month during June, July, August and September. After a most careful inspection and consid eration your committee has awarded the prizes for the best kept pre mises in the city to Nils Jorgenson on the corner cf Eleventh street and Becker avenue. The committee felt that the spirit of this contest was not to determine which pre mises were the greatest in extent or which was worth the more wealth or which has the costliest residence, but which gave evidence of having received the most scrupu lous care and where the best result had been attained with the means at hand. In participation of the other prizes, the committee has excluded all whom the committee had any reason to believe had actually em ployed or are able to employ gar deners'to do the work. These prizes were awarded as follows: First prize, $15, O. L. Lien, cor. 7th and Litchfield. Second prize, $10, Olof Brogren, cor. 7th and Monongalia. Third prize, $7, John Gilhertson, cor. Becker and Mason. Fourth prize, $5, C. Freeberg, cor. Second and Minnesota. Fifth prize, $3, Chris. Peterson, cor. Campbell and 12th. There were some over one hun dred places that were actually scored on every one of the features named in the conditions of the con test, and the committee desires to state that there were a number of other places that were handsomely kept but which could not be scored because they lacked one or more of the features required. Of those scored the committee desires to name the following as worthy of honorable mention: Russell Spicer D. N. Tallman G. E. Qvale Ole Barnstad Fred Wold Geo. Otterness F. F. Nelson S. S. Glarum S.
