Hundreds of Minnesota Meth
odists Encamped Upon the
Red Rock Grounds.
The Attendance at the Open
ing Not so Large as
Old-Time Campers Miss the
Two Sams—Jones and
Bishop Fitzgerald and Mrs.
Maggie Van Cott Attrac
tions for the Week.
At an early hour yesterday morning
the old bell . on the Bed Bock amphi
theater pealed forth, and announced to
the hundred or more encamped upon
the grounds the opening of the first day
of the Methodist camp meeting. The
morning was all that could be desired.
The sun shone oii an encampment small
in number, but those which composed it
were not small in their expectations of
the coming two weeks. The campers
present were mostly those who have
been at Bed Bock on former years,
aud had come to the opening services
hoping to get well settled before the
multitudes began to arrive, It is, how
ever, noticeable that the opening at
tendance is not up to that of one and two
years ago, but this is accounted for by
the fact that this encampment has been
commenced on Friday, very near the
close of the week, aud as the meetings
will continue over three Sundays many
will not think of coming until the open
ing of next week. The absence, of the
two Sams (Jones and Small) is also quite
noticeable. Many good old, brothers
and sisters anxiously shake their heads
and express their fears of the outcome
of the assembly, yet they all admit that
possibly more good will be done and the
camp ground will prove less of an at
traction for the curious and uninterest
ed. The great attraction for the present
week is Bishop J. N. Fitzsrerald. aud to
his strength will be added that of Mrs.
Maggie Van Cott and of ministers of the
Minnesota conference. Old camp meet
ing attendants compare the present
choir leaders, Prof. McPhail, of Chicago,
with E. O. Excell, the sweet
singer of the Jones and Small party,
while Prof. McPhail does not perhaps
possess such a sweet voice as Mr. Excell,
still, he has already won the good opin
ion ot all in his earnestness in conduct
ing the singing. His voice is strong and
heavy, and is a good one to follow. Yes
terday's services were entirely in the
hands of the Vouns People's Methodist
alliance. Key. M. D. Carrell, of Chi
cago, who is recognized as a great
leader in this work, was present
and was the chief conductor at the
services. A morning praise service was
led by Prof. McPhail, and at 10:20 Sec
retary Elliott, of the Minneapolis Y. M.
C. A., made a short address upon the
Other addresses followed, but in each
the spargers urged the young people
to make great efforts in their personal
work. The afternoon services opened
at 3 o'clock with a young people's meet
ing, also conducted by Dr. Carrell. He
spoke from the eleventh chapter of
Deuteronomy. The lirst sermon of the
encampment was delivered an hour
later by the same gentleman. His text
was: "But grow in grace and in the
knowledge of our Lord and Savior
Jesus Christ— Second Peter, iii., 18.
The speaker first considered the essen
tial elements in a Christian life. First
one must be . rid of sin. * He must be
perfect before he begins to grow. Just
as a seed must be perfect to sprout,
grow and bring forth fruit. Again,
whatever mars the Christian life must
be forsaken for the soul's sake. Growth
will allow of no counter forces at work.
The sneaker then turned his attention
to things which must be. done to insure
growth. The principal one was to
study the word. The fellowship of
Christ must be cultivated and his ac
quaintance made dearer than that of
the nearest friend. :.
iAs early as 7 o'clock in the evening,
the young people gathered in the
chapel to discuss the work of the Young
People's Methodist alliance. The prin
cipal words were spoken by Dr. Car
rell. in whose hands the meetings of
yesterday were, and those of to-day will
be. He said that many had an idea
that the work of the societies of the
young people in the church detracted
from the general work of the church.
But this was not true. Their work was
always harmonious and never separate.
This organization should be strictly
spiritual, for never did a young people's
society become useful until it had be
come imbued with spirituality.
Although many of the people were
engaged last evening in preparing for
to-day, and in setting their household
effects aright, still there were present
at the. evening services about 200 peo
ple. The choir was practicing for the
: Sunday song services while the assem
blies were gathering. : Dr.JCarrell again
preached. His text was "Come unto
Me all ye that labor and are heavy
laden, and I will give you
rest." This was a■ ; real . an
swer, he said, to the question
I "Where will I find Christ?" At the feet
i of Jesus and in complete consecration
there was rest. There is a recompense
in toil which more than repays for all
the labor expended. God places us in
these environments that we may exer
cise our faculties. We need not the re
moval of responsibility, but what Adam
had before the fall— an adjustment of
all powers, so that we will have perfect
rest in all our toil. This heart pain is
as much an indication that something
is wrong wit/h our soul's welfare
as the pain in a hand indicates
that something is wrong with the band.
We often need this heart rest more than
the rest of the body. There are three
things especially from which we need
to be relieved and given rest. These
are sin, anxiety and , . , ••
Only God can free us from sin. * What
is it that comes up in the mind at the
close of clay and spoils all the successes
of the day? It is the remembrance of
some sin that has been committed. I
cannot see how a man can live who has
given himself up to sin. You ask, Can
God deliver from it? Hear the testi
mony that comes up from the hearts of
thousands of His followers. They tell
us that anxiety kills more men than
work, and 1 believe it. Ido not won
der that people are anxious who have
no hope beyond. Their hope is wrapped
up in these few years, and how brief
they are. Lastly, there is the fear of
death. It is a solemn thing to stand
face to face with death and know that
in a few minutes you willbe in eternity,
and from this alone can God free you.
There is no rational man who can look
death in the face and not fear it.
Throughout the day people continued
to arrive, and last evening several hun
dred were encamped on the ground.
Among the more prominent arrivals of
yesterday were Dr. Marshall, of the
Centenary church, Minneapolis: Rev.
ja. W. Bushnell, Hamline; M. E. Gal

Wholesale Evictions on the Upper
Flats by Deputy Sheriff's.
The Upper Levee syndicate, through
its attorney, Moritz Heim, . lias filially
succeeded in defeating the poor squat
ters on the upper fiats, under the high
bridge. Judgment was given in the
municipal court for the syndicate, writs .
of restitution were granted, and yester
day afternoon the evictions were begun
in earnest. An effort was made on the
part of Attorney Heim and Sheriff
Bean to keep the facts from
the public, Mr. Heim stating to a
Glove reporter late in the afternoon
that the evictions would not be made
for a month yet. Sheriff Bean also de
nied any knowledge of a proposed cru
sade against the squatters. Themisera
able people were moved upon early in
the ; afternoon, however, by a posse of
eight deputy sheriffs. The officers
went down with orders to evict every
family remaining on the syndicate's
property, and were prepared to fully
enforce their orders. Most of the men
living on the flats were away from
home at their work, and the deputies
had little trouble in moving the women
and children out into the streets, sev
eral old women even taking their things
into the street when the crowd ap
peared upon the flats. A few others re
monstrated, compelling the sheriff's
men to move their household effects by
force. The only man arrested for re
sisting the officers was Adam Walter,
an old German, sixty years of age, who
observed the operations from the Omaha
engine house where lie is employed,
and went over to see what
the trouble was. A light shower of rain
was falling at the time he arrived, which
induced him to pick up some of his bed
ding from the street and attempt to put
it back into his shanty. The deputies
objected, he insisted, and the result was
that one of the men struck him in the
lace, arrested him and bad him taken to
the central police station. Ten fam
ilies, all of those who remained on the
syndicate's property, were removed
out into the street. Men remained
to see that they did not move
back into the miserable houses that
have sheltered them so, long, and until
a late hour last night men, women and
children were wandering about on the
flats to find a resting place, while others
stood guard over little heaps of house
hold goods, representing their entire
earthly possessions. One old woman, a
widow with, three children, applied at
the central station last night for shel
ter, stating that she had been driven
out by the deputies.
Judge Burr Dispenses Justice to
a Batch of Queer People.
There was a queer collection before
Judge Burt in the police court yester
day morning, the culprits ranging from
human freaks to long-headed, astute at
torneys. Charles Tyson Butcher, a well
known barrister, was arraigned on a
charge of larceny, preferred by one
Jesse Hermannson.who alleged that the
attorney collected a bill of ?2J for him
and appropriated the money to his own
use. "Mr. Butcher explained that after
collecting the bill he had been com
pelled to pay a bill guaranteed for Her
maiinson at the American house, which,
with his fees, left no money coming to'
his client. After hearing the evidence .
Judge Burr discharged the defendant. '
The Sirabunski *" freak, with a
younger brother, was arraigned
for stealing chickens from. a.
Dayton's Bluff hennery. The
cases were continued until next
week and both children were sent to
the city hospital. "Dutchy" Woods,
the old "pen" bird, was arraigned with
James Ryan, Thomas Ford and John
Grind for "shaking down" a Swede
named Anderson for $10. The four
were c released under suspended sen
tences of ninety days, agreeing to leave
the city. Ella Williams and Grace
Strong, arrested by Policemen Davis
and Haney for keeping and visiting a
house of ill-fame, were released. Carry
Charlton, a street walker, was assessed
$15. John Davis, arrested for assault- •

The Norwegian Lutheran College.
To tne Editor of the Globe.
The strongest reason for the location
of the Norwegian Lutheran college
between St. Paul ■ and Minneapolis is.
the benefit there would be to the insti
tution. Contact with enlightened cities
affords no small means of education in
itself. Decorah, the former seat
of the college. likewise La , Crosse,
a Scandinavian stronghold, are both
liberally competing for it. It
would be a pity for the Twin Cities to
be surpassed by those places. ' It is esti
mated that in Dakota, Minnesota, lowa
and Wisconsin there will be tributary
to the college about a million Norwe
gian-Americans and their descendents;
and in a few years : 500 to 1,000 students
will be in attendance, with a large corps
of instructors. With the united efforts
of our • two cities, the college
can be secured. First, it must
be understood that :•■:- the; location
will : be practically between the ; two
cities. : Secondly, the site must ibe • left
to the determination of a competent .
and disinterested committee, who shall
make the selection after the means are 1 ;
raised. Thirdly, as our Norwegian-
American' fellow citizens are. princi
pally interested, they should raise as
large a subscription as. they ■ possibly
can before applying to other people.

getic action and public spirit. -~ . .

Public Examiner Kenyon Fixes a
;■■■ Basis for Computing Salaries.'
Public Examiner Kenyon yesterday
issued ah- opinion of the attorney gen
eral, fixing the basis for computing the (
salaries of auditors and treasurers, aha
auditors' clerk hire. Clerk hire is; not
included in the opinion, but the word-,
ing of the statute being similar to thai
relating to treasurer the same.'couclu 7 '
sion must follow in construing it. At- 1
torney General Clapp says: : ~: '" ' (U]
: You inquire whether in computing the sal
ary of county auditors an allowance should .
be made for deductions of exemptions of
$100 to each taxpayer. In my judgment the
salary would be based npon the amount fixe*
by the state board of equalization prior ft*
the redaction referred to. The salary is
; based upon the value of the taxable prop- "
erty. " The reduction is merely made as an
exemption • to taxpayers and should not, in
my judgment, be taken into account iv de
termining the amount of taxable property
upon whish to base the auditor's salary,', as
the statute plainly says it shall be based upon
the amount of ' taxable property as fixed by
the slate board of equalization. As to the
treasurer's '. salary I am : not so clear. The .
statute is silent as to the means of determin
ing the taxable valuation, but inasmuch, as i
it has pointed out in the case of the auditor
the means of determining the basis,. 1 am
rather inclined to think that it would be best
to adopt the same basis in determining the
matter or the treasurer's salary.

', • Though nothing is settled definitely
the Globe will venture this prophecy,
and will bank on its correctness. The
1 19 th inst. will see * the following rates
from New York, to St. Paul and Minne

' company and St. Paul & Duluth rail-
: road: ....

i The old rate was:
lsi class. 2d. 3d. 4th. 5 th. 6th.
; .; 79 72 57 37 32 28
• ; The new rate is precisely the same as
' that by lake and rail to Chicago, and is
; a cut of 15 cents below the rate an- .
\ nounced by the Eastern Minnesota yes
r terday. . The St. Paul & , Duluth has
viewed the situation with groat dissat-
i sfaction for some time. It has been
anxious to get the rate war brought to a
'■ close, so tbat St. Paul and Minneapolis
; merchants might have a chance to do
some business, The Eastern Minne ota
'. was aiming at ' the same thing when
f it made ; its cut, but it bad
' not the courage to .-make its
rates low. enough. Just on what basis
• its rates were made is a puzzle to most
' railroad men. The St. Paul & Duluth
in slashing rates to bed-rock, as these
appear to be, has left no margin for any
lower.rates. . It will be difficult for any
of the Chicago lines to ever meet this
rate, which is identical with that from
New York ■to Chicago by lake and
rail. Whether the Eastern Min
nesota will- meet . it remains to
be seen, but : .it may be. stated
authoritatively that the Omaha will do
so at once. They say they will meet
any rate but will not cut below. This
action, which it is almost absolutely
-certain will be taken by the St. Paul &
Duluth within the next few days, is
based upon the apparent impossibility
of . the Western Freight association
; cominsr to any arrangement. Any offers
' made to the Lake Superior lines have
beeu far from satisfactory to the Duluth
road, which has unceremoniously re
jected all offers of arbitration. So far
las can be made out, the officers,
of the road are not anxious for arbitra
tion, feeling that this is just their
; chance. Their position is strongly en
• BrehcecLand in conjunction with the
Lake Superior Transit company, and
the trunk lines can make the rate given
•above and still. leave for itself a margin
of profit. It thinks it can scoop in the
bulK ot the west-bound business by
• these rates and on such a basis is not
v afraid of auy competition. This ris
a daring stroke .for. a road:
like . the Duluth to make, and
; apparently it cuts the ground right
: from under the feet of the Chicago
lines. :It must not be understood that
these rates are authoritatively an- '
nounced, but the Globe feels assured
in making the prediction that June 19
: will flee them in operation, and within
I a few days they may be .. looked- for on
. the Omaha. A man prominent in rail
road freight circles made tne prediction
yesterday that the Chicago lines would
go out of the lake and rail business be
fore loug, there being nothing in it for
them. He suggested it as a means for
settling the present difficulty. This cut
by the St. Paul & Duluth may possibly
have the effect of driving the Chicago ,
lines to this conclusion, but it will only
be after a hard fight In addition to
this cut iv freight rates the Duluth has
cut passenger rates from St. Paul to .
Duluth to $4 to . meet the cut of the
Eastern Minnesota.

; The council committee on fire de
partment held a meeting at 4 o'clock
yesterday afternoon, which was at

sion of the proposition by the
board, as published last Tuesday
morning, to dispose of No. 4 engine
% house and erect a new building on a
jcheaper lot. A lot at the corner of John
street and Waverly place is now looked
'upon by the board as a favorable loca
("tion. The committee was favorable to
the proposition, provided the present
, property can "be disposed of for a suffi
cient sum to buy the property proposed
and erect the building. Tho matter,
will be laid before the council at its

The Seventh Street Cable Is Now
In Operation.
The Seventh street cable line was
formally opened yesterday, and joy
reigns :in the breasts of residents on
Dayton's bluff. All day the cars were
liberally patronized, and in the evening
they were filled to overflowing. The
road is somewhat heavy, but a few days'
running will work off the rough edges.
During the morning, at the invitation
of Col. Barr, the mayor and city officials
took a trip of inspection of the line, and
also visited the powerhouse. When they
returned, dinner was partaken at the
Hotel Ryan. The road was favorably
reported, on, and thecals declared
models of the car builder's art.; The
run of two and a half miles was made
.in a little over twenty minutes. The
opening of the cable will give a great
impetus to trade on. the East side, and
. is hailed with delight, not only by the
.residents, but tradespeople and real
estate agents .owning property in that
. portion of the city.
Supt. Kiehle Gives County Super
■:'.'.- intendents Some Pointers.
: County superintendents have re
' peatedly asked of the state department
of public instruction whether a school
district .would . be entitled to share in
the apportionment of public money,
provided it should close its school dur
ing the prevalence of an epidemic, and
so fail to hold a session of the length
prescribed by law. Supt. Kiehle's re
ply is: '.'■:-:.
'•If it is recorded, both in the register of
the district and the annual report of the
clerk to the county superintendent, that the
school was closed by the order of the school
trustees, and it is shown further that the
teacher received his salary for the whole
time during which the school was closed,
then the pupils who would have attended
may be counted as having attended the. full
time. Every pupil then having forty days to
his credit will, of course.be entitled to ap
portionment." MOB
Gov. Merriam Honors the Alumni

The Court House Clock Is on the
Way to St. Paul.
The court house clock will soon be on
the way to St. Paul, and Dr. Day is ac
cordingly happy. As he opened his
mail yesterday his eyes fell upon a let
ter he had written to the manufacturers
and their reply subscribed. The negoti
ation is self-explanatory :
"W. F. Tompkins, Chicago.— Dear
Sir: Please advise me when we may
expect the clock here. The people all
do cry out with one accord that time
shall be no more. 1 want something to
tell them, for they refuse to be com
forted. Let us hear from you. - - : .

Reply: "There shall be more time,
and better than St. Paul ever saw—
Paul the apostle or St. Paul the abode
of Dr. Day." '■ ■■' ' ■ y
