A BANQUET FOE JOHN LIND.
Millers of the Northwest
Pleasing Social Event in the Careers of
Active Business M*n at the Min
An Elaborate Menu followed by Felici
tous Addresses From Gentlemen
Prominent in the City
Bill Ueye and William Hawley Smith Ada
to the Pleasures of the Occasion.
A banquet was tendered last evening
at the Minneapolis Club by lie millers
of the Northwest to ex-Congressman
John Lind of New Ulna. The Banquet
was spread in the large dining hall on
the first floor, and the table was laden
with luturies and dainties usually found
upon such occasions. The menu con
sisted of many courses. There were ful
60 gentlemen present. Charles S. Pills
bury was chairman. He filled the po
sition gracefully, and introduced the first
speaker, Mayor Eustis, saying that it
was fitting the guest of the evening
should be welcomed by the city's execu
tive. Mayor Eustis responded cordially
to the invitation to ofter Mr. Lind the
welcome of the city, and made a pretty
after-dinner speech, in which he jocular
ly promised protection to the visiting
millers if they should get into trouble
while in the city.
Mr. Pillsbury in speaking of the event
said that there should be more meetings
of millers that much good would come
to the trade thereby. He narrated the
success achieved by Mr. Lind in secur
ing desired legislation at Washington,
stating that in the committee it was gen
erally conceded that "what John Lind
said went," Mr. Lind had argued cer
tain causes in the committee, and before
the president, and as a result congress
had passed important matters directly
beneficial to the millers in the matter of
Mr. Lind depreceated his efforts, and
very modestly explained the part he had
taken. He stated that the one great
pleasure in the life of a public man was
to serve his constituents, and turned to
Mayor Eustis for a continuation of his
His honor bowed assent.
Mr. Lind did admit that he had been
persevering, and said that the one cause
for success in any movement was in a
dogged, affirmative perserverence. He
narrated the history of milling, quoting
from ancient history. Milling, he said,
used to be a monopoly. It consisted of
a waterfall and a mill stone and that,
as waterfalls existed only frequently,
the mills of a certain section of the
country enjoyed a monopoly of the
trade in that section. Things were vast
ly different now. A mill could be es
tablished wherever coal or fuel could be
delivered. The industry was radically
different from any other in existence, us
it supplied an immediate consumption,
and was not a manufacturing industry.
The speaker dealt largely with acts of
foreign governments in discriminating
against American breadstuffs, and sug
gested radicaljretaliatory measures. He
argued in favor of closer co-operation
among the millers, and a more united
federation of interests.
President Davis, of the Winter Wheat
League, and others addressed the meet
One of the happy features of the even
ing was the advent of Bill Nye into the
banquet hall, accompanied by his col
league, William Hawley Smith. The
entrance of these gentlemen was the sig
nal for a round of applause, which burst
forth in the midst of a song by the Ce
cilian Quartet. Mr. Nye was introduced
by Chairman Pillsbury as being a miller
himself. The humorist began by ad
dressing his hearers as "fellow miller
ers." He believed he had met a good
many of the millers on a previous occa
sion, at which time he had been asked
to tell what he knew about milling. He
had told all he knew and had lots of
time left. Bill related how he used to
be a miller himself when he was young.
He had been used to save wear and tear
on the elevator by carrying bran irom
the basement to the attic. Nye's talk
was funny. He was followed by Mr.
Smith, who related humorous anect
dotes, to the enjoyment of his hearers.

GERMANY TAKES THE LEAD
I tke Art of Trashing
rs Dr. J. M.
Dr. J. M. Rice lectured yesterday at
the high school to a very large audience.
No man living today has traveled wider
and has been a closer observer of the
educational systems of the world than
the doctor. He ha3 been a valued con
tributor to the pedagogic literature of
the present, and his articles in the For
um-have attracted marked attention. Dr.
Rice aims for the highest ideal in the ed
ucational art, and is a severe enemy of
all tt,at is tinged with ogyism. His ef
forts are directed towards securing for
this country all the best features of other
lands to combine them with the liberal
school policy of this nation.
His lecture was devoted to results of
scientific teaching, and especially of the
methods in conducting recitations.
"Recitation is in itself an art," said
the speaker, "and the only country where
thorough scientific teaching is found to
day in its highest state of perfection is
Germany. While the American teacher
has few equals and no superiors in the
handling of children, calculated to be for
their greatest good, the German teacher
has no equal in the application of pains
taking methods. When teachers confine
themselves to simply listening to a reci
tation as learned from the text book the
*system is of an inferior order. Then, it
is not giving a lesson, but hearing one.
That sort of teaching is purely mechani
cal, as it is found in the schools of China.
Such teaching is harmful, and it is well
that it has been banished from the schools
of St. Paul. The true aim of scientific
teaching is to develop all the faculties of
the child, in the school rooms of Germa
ny the text books are made by the schol
ars from attention to the lessons and ob
servation, A clearly distinguished aim
and careful drill mark the course there,
and are|the essentials of a lesson with a
German teacher. A knowledge ot the
true aim of any study opens the eyes of
the student and enables him to walk in
the light of reason."
The doctor then illustrated his re
marks with some reminiscences of his
trip through the schools of Germany,
and showed how a class lesson is con
ducted"there. It demonstrated the prac
tical ways of the Germans as compared
withjthe more superficial still in force
in some sections of this country. The
speaker held the marked attention of
his audience to the close, and was accor
ded liberal applause.—St. Paul Globe.
