THE FORGING RACKET.
The Principal of the Humboldt
School Overcomes West -
It Is a Common Practice for
School Principals to Pro
f-Ir. Bryant No Greater Sin
ner in This Respect Than*
So School Inspectors Prompt
ly Dismiss. the Charges
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
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
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
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
. 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
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
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
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
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
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.
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
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
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
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. . - ''

Did William Rose Commit a Mur
der in Brown County ?
William Rose is lying under sentence
to hang at Redwood Falls Friday. This
morning his attorney. 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

Reports That for Once Show a

A^Booming* Concern to Devel
op Northern Minnesota ;'■
The Shrift of William Rose
Grows Shorter Day by.
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.

A BOOMING CONCERN
To Develop the Resources of
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.
