THE FORGING RACKET. The Principal of the Humboldt School Overcomes West - Side Petitioners. It Is a Common Practice for School Principals to Pro mote Pupils. f-Ir. Bryant No Greater Sin ner in This Respect Than* Others, So School Inspectors Prompt ly Dismiss. the Charges Against Him. The investigation, into the charge made against Principal Bryant, of the Humboldt school, was resumed yester day afternoon by a committee of school inspectors under the presidency of Dr. Bridgman. The "charge against Prof. Bryant is that lie irregularly promoted pupils in his school, thereby enabling him to retain the high school course in the Humboldt school. A resolution of the school board required that unless there were thirty-live scholars in the high school course of the branch. the ''branch would be dispensed with. To - retain the high school course at Hum boldt school, Mr. Bryant is charged with forcing pupils; skipping grades; compelling the students to cover two years in one year. The charge against Prof. Bryant is brought by prominent West siders, re presented by Attorney Hawthorne, and the interests of Principal Bryant were in the hands of F. F. Wilde. With Dr. Bridgman there are associated on the committee Messrs. Scheffer, Smith, Keane and Auerbacii. Dr. Keane opened the proceedings by requiring Supt. Gilbert to answer the following question: Is it an irregular ity or against the custom which pre vails in the St. Paul schools for the principal to make individual promo tions. Supt. Gilbert— No. sir; the promotion of students from time to time is not ir regular; it is the common thing; it is done all through the schools. A pupil is discovered during the term in a grade for which he evidently is unfit, and in such cases it is the custom of the prin cipal to advance him to the proper grade. Dr. Keane— I think we can dis miss the question of promotion, and con fine the investigation to the question as to irrelevancy of these promotions, showing whether the pupils suffered therefrom or not. Attorney Hawthorne said it was agreed that individual promotions .on merit were proper, but what they protested against was wholesale promotion.which, to say the least, was in violation of the rules of the school board, aud also was prejudicial to the good education. It "is in evidence that there are now forty six pupils in the annex high school at the Humboldt 'school, of that number only twelve passed regularly from grade to grade, and thirty-four were forced. 1 wish to ask Mr. Gilbert if that is not a Peculiar State of Affairs, and If that does not entirely exceed the power vested in a principal. lam pre pared to prove further these wholesale promotions. . Dr. Keano said they did not want any proof of this. Prove that these children promoted were unfit for promotion^ Dr. Bridgman— Yes, that is whaTwe want to get at. Attorney Hawthorne— shall do that; but 1 first want to understand if * the defense admit to the charge of wholesale promotions. Attorney Wilde —We don't admit that. We promoted pupils, but we did not promote them ii regularly. -' Mr. Scheffer— however, admit that bright scholars were promoted. Prof. Bryant— l am willing to admit that promotions were made. It is the custom of all principals of schools. We are enjoined to do it when pupils can do the work. Attorney Hawthorne said he wanted to prove, as be was prepared, these wholesale promotions. It was a serious matter, and exceedingly prejudicial td good education. Dr. Bridgman — We shall not allow you to prove that wholesale promotions are prejudicial to good education. That is a matter for the board of education. Attorney Hawthorne What do you want me to prove, then? Dr. Bridgman— Prof. Bryant has promoted pupils wrongfully, and to their disadvantage. Attorney Hawthorne— Then the com mittee admits that wholesale promo tions were made. Dr. Briilgman— lt is admitted that promotions were made. That is the custom in all schools. Attorney Hawthorne— Very well. Miss Ada A. Woodbury was recalled. She testified to thirty-four pupils being compelled to put one year's work into live mouths, and that they were then passed on to the high school. Lady teachers of the Hum bold school, were called. These, however, would not admit that the pupils had been harmed by the forcing process alleged 10 have been exercised upon certain scholars now undergoing the high school course. Some scholars were nat urally slow. Owing to I interruptions of Attorney Wilde and members of the committee, the investigation at times lapsed into disorder. Mr. Hawthorne protestested against being interrupted. He said that notwithstanding the difficulties imposed upon them to bring to light the facts connected with the Humboldt school, which were admitted to be Notorious on the Went Side, they were being hampered and opposed with all sort of objections. Dr. Bridgman— We have . been en deavoring since 2 o'clock yesterday to get you to bring forward some facts or evidence In support of your charges. Attorney Hawthorne— And every time 1 attempt to do so. 1 am choked off. Dr. Bridgman— And every time you go outside of the matter under inves tigation I will choke you off. Deal with facts and not with theories. " Prof. Slack was called and stated that wholesale skipping of grades would be injurious to pupils. E. R. Bryant was called. He had nev er told Miss Woodbury that he removed his son from the Humboldt annex high school "because he did not want him kept back by the forced pupils." He thought his son had been kept back by the principal. . Supt. Gilbert testified to Miss Little calling upon him and reporting that the principal of the Humboldt school was forcing pupils into the high school course. He prepared a test examina tion, and from the examination Prof. Bryant reported a number of scholars ready for promotion to the high school. The list included the names of pupils Miss Little reported were unfit . to take tne high school course. He did not ex amine the examination paners. Dr. Smith— What was your opinion ot Miss Little's complaint against Mr. Bryant? Supt. Gilbert— l thought Miss Little unduly excited. Miss Little is a nerv ous woman, and my impression was that in hernervous state . and natural characteristics she had largely exagger ated the case and made a mountain out of a mole hill. — . Attorney Hawthorne— What would yon s»v* about thirty pupils being pro moted in one year? oupt. Gilbert said it might be regu larly done, but it was of very rare oc currence. Attorney Hawthorne— Do you remem ber having said to Prof. Slack that an attempt had been made to pass a class in the Humboldt, school without exam ination? " ; Supt. Gilbert remembered nothing of the sort. rr . y Principal Baker, of the Jefferson school, said the custom was after an ex amination to report from two to. four pupils in one room. "- There might be fifty pupils promoted in one half-year. Of course, sometimes it might be less. . Miss Darragh, principal of Hendricks, could not. see how it would be injurious to bright pupils because of their irregu lar promotion. Principal worth, of Jefferson, gave similar testimony. He had pro moted pupils similar to Mr. Bryant. Miss Shanley. another principal, testi fied to having promoted seventy-six pupils. The pupils had given great sat isfaction. It, was nothing unusual. It was a principal's duty to advance the pupils all along the line. Mr. Scheffer— And you take special pride in this? Miss Shanley— Certainly. I think a principal is very culpable, indeed, who does not advance his pupils, boys es pecially, when they are twelve years of age, to advance them as fast as possible in high school work. Mr. SchetTer— l would move that the name of Mr. Bryant be stricken out and the name of Miss Shanley substi tuted. [Laughter.] It was thereupon decided to take no more evidence, and the committee, after a few minutes' deliberation, passed a resolution that, from the evidence ad duced, there was nothing to justify the charges brought against Prof. Brvant in his conduct of the Humboldt school. THE STRONGEST AND PUREST. The Official Report of the Minne sota Dairy and Food Commis sioner Shows the Royal Baking Powder the Best in the State. The last report of the Minnesota State Food and Dairy Commission contains the details of the State Chemists' ex periments and analyses to determine the strength and keeping qualities of the ' various balling powders. Samples of the numerous brands on sale in this state were purchased and first analyzed to ascertain their leavening power. The Royal Baking Powder is shown ' by the tests of both state analysts. Prof, liber man and Prof. Drew," to contain the greatest amount of leavening gas of the cream of tartar powders thus purchased and tested. Hence this powder is offi cially ranked at the head of the list. The report attaches treat importance to a series of experiments made to as certain the character, efficiency and keeping qualities of the powders. Bak ing powders that vary In strength, or that readily lose strength before use, are unreliable and will not give even results; besides, it is an indication of the use in their compounding of im proper ingredients. These tests were applied to a large number of samples of different ages of the three cream of tar tar powders best known in Minnesota. They showed the strength or leavening power of the Koyal very much greater than that of the others. "The uniformity of strength of all th** samples of Royal tested was remarkable. Its leavening power was practically unimpaired even 111 the oldest specimens. The differ ence in the amount of leavening gas in different samples of both the other brands was so great as to seriously im pair their usefulness in baking. As much as 24 per cent loss was found in samples a few months old. All the samples of -Royal examined by Dr. Drew were reported of satisfactory strength and quality. . - '' Repp Ivory. ; .'-"/J Latest thing in note paper, at Wedel staedt's, 95 Easi Third street.

Mr. Brown, will have an interview with Gov. Merriam to plead clemency for his client. Feel ing in Brown county over this execution is divided. From the outset Rose has pleaded his innocence of the crime for which he has been convicted, and peo" pie acquainted with the full facts say there is a reasonable doubt in the case. If such be so there is 110 doubt that Gov. Merriam will intervene and commute the sentence to life imprisonment. The governor stated last evening that up to then he had not been acquainted with anything which would lead him to inter fere with the execution. He, however, proposed to hear all that Attorney Brown might have to say in behalf of Rose. Well to Remember This. You get no more than your moneys worth at the "Plymouth" or anywhere else.

A^Booming* Concern to Devel op Northern Minnesota ;'■ Resources. The Shrift of William Rose Grows Shorter Day by. Day. That the state fair of 1891 was a grand success, from a financial as well as an agricultural standpoint, was made fully manifest yesterday, when Secretary Cross and Assistant Secretary Part ridge completed their report of the re ceipts and expenditures. This report shows that after paying all premiums and expenses of every kind there re mains a balance of $10,700.90. This is in marked contrast to the condition of the association after the fair of 1890, find shows what can be done when the Minnesota state fairs are not man aged solely by politicians for political ends. The receipts this year were no larger than the receipts of a year ago, but the expenses were many thousands less, and instead of a deficit there is a Surplus. That this happy result is due to the good management of Secretary W. F. Cross no one acquainted with the facts will deny. To be sure ex-Senator Clough was an efficient, hard-working and ca pable president, but so were Messrs. Pillsbury, Bushnell and Merriam. The ' fact is, the secretary is the man upon whom falls the brunt of the work, and in this position Gen. Cross has demon strated himself to be the best officer the association has had in recent years.

The incorporation of the Northwest ern Land Company, starting with a capital of $50,000, became a fact yester day. The concern seems to be more than a brief consideration would indi cate. Its officers are leaders, and its stockholders include some of the keen est operators of Minuesota. The officers • are William M. Bushnell, president; George M. Seymour, Stillwater, vice president; 11. W. Childs, assistant at torney general, secretary; W.M. Fields, of Cedar Falls, treasurer. Mr. Fields is president of the First National Bank of Cedar Falls. The general manager is 11. C. Judson, of Farmington, Minn. Among , the stockholders are Donald Grant, of Faribault; Hon. Moses E. Clapp, the attorney general; Hon. J. A. Tawney, Winona; Jere Allis, isinours. Minn.; W. H. Greenleaf, Litchfield; Senator J. Grinnel, Kasson, and C. Nel son, Kasson, and J. A. Bowman and others, of La Prairie. Minn. it appears that the company has got possession of the town lots of the Du luth & Winnipeg railroad at La Prairie, in the new Itasca county. in the north ern part of the state, and has a good opportunity to build a new city up there. The iron mines in that region will soon employ a large force of men, and the new railway east along the Mesaba iron range starts from La Prairie. The lum ber surrounding the town scales about 2.000,000,000 feet, and these inter ests already employ more men than most people would . imagine." Stores and dwellings have been built, and the milling interests are nicely de veloped. * La" Prairie certainly has a future with such an aggregation of capital and influence behind . it. Its success lies in the fact that the shops and division headquarters of the iron mine section of the road are there.
