Today Will Assemble the Body From Which Much Is Expected In the Way of Suggesting the Proper Remedial Legislation. ■ -. _ The Subject Is Attracting In terest All Over the Country, And the Convention of Today Will Voice the Senti ment. The good roads convention that will meet in the chamber of commerce at 10 o'clock today has for its purpose the revolutionizing of our present system of abominable country wagon roads. The Minnesota division of the League of American Wheelmen has taken the initiative in the movement. Of course, it is naturally interested in an import ant degree. Each summer long "runs" are taken by the wheelmen into the country, -going from town to town. Last year the roads were so nearly im passable, owing to the frequent and persistent rains, that nothing like rec ords of which the performers could be proud were made, lt was, perhaps, this fact that set A. 1). Choat, of Minneap olis, and the chief consul of the Minnesota division of the L. A. W., into a thinking mood. Each felt that some heroic measure should be adopted to remedy the condition. While the execrable condition of the public thor oughfares works disastrously to the outings and runs by the wheelmen, Mr. Choat maintains that it must be many fold worse for the farmer or others who aie obliged to use wagon roads for pub lic traffic. In one instance the bail roads interrupt semi-pleasures and iv the other they interfere seriously with the transit of products and freights, or hamper public traffic. Just what the purpose is, in a minute sense, has not yet been worked out. The main object is to set a movement on foot looking to a general remedy of the evils that exist. But how the end is to be attained is a recondite problem, a solution of which the convention is burdened with. It has been incidentally suggested that a commission be appointed to make a searching investigation with Conditions That Obtain, with a view to future remedial meas ures. So far as known this is. the first movement in the direction aimed at in the states. There is no provision .in Minnesota's constitution for incurring any indebtedness for the purposes de sired. Therofore it is possible that the legislature will bo asked to submit tlie matter to a popular vote at the next general election. That is. the people will be empowered to vote upon tiie proposition as to whether or not a debt may be contracted for the construction and maintenance of good roads. It is anticipated that fully 200 or more delegates will participate in the conven tion, and a strenuous effort will be made to force the question to a practical issue. P. L. Iloxie, of St. Paul, is the secre tary of the committee, of which A. D. Choat is the chairman, and Mr. Hoxie is brim-full ot enthusiastic gossip concern ing the. project. He gives credit to Mr. Choat for instituting the movement, and he asseverates that such a widespread interest has been excited that there can be little doubt that definite action will be formulated at the convention. This evening will possibly prove a feature event of the convention. It will be a general session in the hall of the house"of representatives, beginning at 8 o'clock, and the members of the legis lature are especially invited to attend. Isaac B. Patton, of New York, the edit or of the magazine Good Roads, will de liver an address, illustrated by stereon tican views, upon the need of good roads. At the fall meeting of the Minnesota division of the L. A. W. the sum of $100 was voted towards assisting in promul gating the movement and defraying the expenses of a commission of inquiry that will doubtless be asked for. The attention of the press of the state has been directed to the Import of the con vention and its purposes, and a strong sentiment has already been worked up throughout the common wealth. Convention Programme. The convention will be called to order at 10 o'clock this morning by A. D. Choat, of Minneapolis, and this will be followed by an address of welcome by F. G. Ingersoll, who has been detailed to act in the capacity of acting major for the nonce. Then will follow the per fecting of an organization, the appoint ment of such committees as may seem expedient, etc. Prof. G. K. Prendergast, of the state experiment station, will read the first paper, for there will be a multitudinous array of these. To him has been dele gated the duty of presenting a brief upon "Good Koads aud Their lnlluence Upon the Social and Moral Welfare of the State." This will complete the morning session. At 2 o'clock in tho afternoon Gen. C. C. Andrews, the ex-consul to Sweden and Norway, will read a paper on "Eu ropean Koads," and papers will follow sequentially: "Pavements and Koads in Cities and Towns." by Assistant Engineer Sub lette, of Minneapolis. "Relations or Wagon Koads to Kail roads," by J. J. Hill, of the Great Northern railway. Then follows tne general session al luded to above at the state house in the evening, beginning at 8 o'clock. Thursday's programme will begin at 10 a. m. at 'the chamber of commerce. The following papers will be read and discussed: 9_H "The Construction of Dirt and Gravel Roads," by John D. Esterbrook, of St. Paul, formerly chief highway commis sioner of Philadelphia. "Dirt and Gravel Koads, How Main tained and Kept in Repair, Width of Wagon Tires, Etc.," by W. S. Chowan, commissioner Hennepin county. "Cood Koads, Their Influence Upon the Material Welfare of the State," by Prof. 0. C. Gregg, superintendent of farmers' institutes. At 2 o'clock in the afternoon routine matters will be resumed at the capitol. The following papers will be read: "Telford and Macadam Roads Com pared, and Common Gravel . Boads; How Constructed and Maintained," by Kufus Cook, civil engineer, Minne apolis. "Bad Roads. Causes and Remedies," by A. B. Choat, Minneapolis. At 8 p. in. one paper will be read, and then an organization will be perfected. The paper will be by E. J. Hodgson, of St. Paul, and the title is "Better Roads." AS TO GOOD KOADS. The Best Thoroughfares in the World in Ireland. To tne Editor of the Globe. The coining good roads convention is already. attracting universal attention, and it is hoped it may lead to some • good practical result. Every citizen in town and country is much interested in the road question. Our present road system is a disgrace to civilization, and cruel alike to man and animal. I have been through Europe most of last year, and the best public roads in the world are those to be found in Ireland. They are far supeiior to those in England or in Germany. Tourists from every couu THE SAINT PAUL DAILY GLOBE: WEDNESDAY WORKING, JANUARY 25, " 1803. try pronounce them unrivaled. This splendid road system is directly in the hands of the government, with a gov ernment inspector for each county, who examines the roads and gives a certif icate for the excellency of the work done before the road contractors are paid by the government. And this gov ernment inspection of the roads takes place every three months; and the con tractors are thus always made to attend to the repairs of the roads. I hope the coming convention will consider this system of public roadmakiiig. All who have seen and examined it pronounce it the very best in existence. Joseph F. FIIKXCII. Mankato, Jan. 2-1. IN A BItOAD SENSE Should .Legislation^.. Come— Ex- Kepresent'ative Sheets' Ideas. To the Editor of the Globe. The agitation in the interest of good roads should at this time be kept in line with genuine democracy. There should be no taint of paternalism in the future "good roads" legislation. All writers on this snbjeet agree upon one thins:, namely, that good county roads would enhance the value of adjacent lands. The owners of such lands, then, would no largely benefited by improved high ways. A little candid thought will con vince any one that, in a financial sense, no one but the land owners will receive any benefit. The farmer can market his products with less labor, but he will not pay his hired man any higher wages for hauling a hundred bushels of wheat to market on a good road than he wonld for Hauling fifty bushels on a bad road. The tenant farmer will have to pay a higher rent to the owner of a farm adjacent to a good road than one not so advantageously located. The man who buys wild "land for the pur pose of opening up a farm will have to pay a higher price for land connected with markets by good roads than he would for land not so favored. Fur ther, it appears that "property" in a town connected with the surrounding country by good roads will be of greater value than in towns of other equal ad vantages but without good road con nections. But tlie only "property" to be thus enhanced in value is business and dwelling lots, lt is conceded by all 'that good roads will make cheaper farm products, cheaper goods, cheaper building material, cheaper houses. Anything that re duces the cost of carrying products of all kinds from the producer to the con sumer cheapens the price of such products. No kind of property in town or in country will have greater value by reason ot improved roads, exceDt lands and lots. The farmer's house and barn, his fences, his teams, will have no greater value than before the improve ment of the roads. But his land will be of greater value. This enhanced value on his farm will be precisely the same per acre as on the unimproved iand across the road owned by some non-resi dent—a foreigner, perhaps, whose foot has never pressed American soil. The merchant who does' business ma town enjoying the benefits of good roads sells more goods, and sells them cheaper, and pays a higher rent than a com petitor in a town not so favored. The buildings they occupy may oe of equal cost, but the one built on a lot the more favorably located will bring the higher rent. The greater rental value is in the lot. - Now, it seems to me it would be eminently just, and democratic, withal, to securethe revenue necessary to build good roads by laying a tax upon the one class of property which receives all the benefits. A simple law which would enable the land owners along any high way which it is proposed to improve to "lay a lax upon adjacent lands upon petition of a certain per cent of such land owners would solve the whole problem of a road revenue. The tax should be the same per acre on im proved and unimproved lands of equal natural advantage. In order to secure this, the assessment laws should be changed so that the assessor's books would give the site value of farms sep arate from tin; total value, and the tax could then be levied upon tiie-site value, whicii alone is enhanced by the im provement of the adjacent road. 1 do not claim any originality in pro posing this plan for raising road reve nues. A method very similar is already in practice in Indiana for improving country roads, and I believe street improvements in St. Paul are made on this plan. Those who want state aid and county aid as weii as national aid for country roads ought not to be found outside of the ranks of those who think the foreigner can be made to pay the tariff. Why should A who owns a farm in B township, be taxed by the county board to help build a road in C town ship in a distant part of the county? Or why should property in Houston county be taxed to build roads in Kittson county? Or the people of Minnesota pay taxes to be expended in building roads in Texas'.' Tlie only excuse for such a system of aid in road building is that each locality would get as much aid from all other localities as it pays out. If such be the case why not let the peo ple of each locality raise their own rev enue and expend it themselves? ca&siS Again, we have no need of a road commission or bureau in the state or na tion, nor a cabinet officer whose arduous duty it shall be to gather statistics ou methods of road building. We do not want to pattern after Europe, where such excellent roads are built at the ex pense of the laboring class and for the benefit of the landlords: where the enormous advantages of the improved highways are of no benefit to the masses, except, perhaps, to enable them to travel out of such favored countries and emigrate to a country noted for its bad roads. European governments col lect enormous revenues by tariff duties and other taxes upon labor and use them in the spirit of paternalism for ex tensive internal improvements which enhance the value of lands. This in crease in land values goes into the pockets of the landlords in the form of annual rents, which the peasant ten antry must pay for the opportunity to cultivate the soil of their native land. Unless we can build up our new road system upon a more equitable principle, we had better travel tiirough mud awhile longer. J. U. Sheets. Hartford, Minn.

Terrible Adventure of a Boat man From Verndale, : Wadena County, Who Went From There to the Gulf of Mexico in a Small Craft. State Solons Made at Home in the Commercial Club Rooms. \ Sons of the Revolution Will Observe the Birthday of George. William Walden, of Wadena, has had a very painful and thrilling experience 'and just now is the hero of many a story running through the papers pub lished in cities on the Gulf of Mexico. His adventures were such as few men would care to experience, and were fraught with hardships and suffer ing of the severest kind. On the Slst of July he left Minnesota in adouble-eiuter clinker-built boat, built on the model of the Norwegian fishing boats, and started on his journey to Dundee county.; Florida, his only companion being a Scotch shepherd dog. The ooat was well provisioned and litted for the journey, ami the trip down the Mississippi river, past the quaran tine station and into the Gulf of Mexico made without accident or mishap worthy of mention. ' Four weeks ago last Sat urday in a heavy northwest squall ins boat was driven ashore on Mitchell island, nbout twenty miles soutli of Cat island, in the harbor of Biloxi, Miss. Mitchell island is a low, marshy piece of land with no timber or vegetation ex cept marsh grass, uninhabited and about as desolate a spot as one could hnd. About this time Walden's provisions became exhausted, and for five days he was without food, during which time lie suffered intensely, and added to this was the unusually cold weather which prevailed. On Christmas eve the blanket in which he had rolled himself was frozen hard and stiff, and with his clothing saturated with the rains or the day before his condition was critical. His only means of providing a lire was with charcoal, of which. he Had a small supply. He built his fire in a small frying pan. Without tliis he v.ould have frozen to death. Fortunately he had an ample supply of water. At the expiration of live days the panes of hunger had been so intense that" he resolved to kill his dog. For three weeks and one day he remained on his boat, his only food being that sup plied by his dog, of which lie only ate sufficient to keen him alive, not know ing how long it would be betore assist ance arrived. During these three weeks two or three vessels passed within speaking distance of him and promised to send him assistance in the morning, but when morning came they were out of sight. SgptifS Finally, last Saturday, the lugger Second Hope, of New Orleans, came to his rescue and pulled his boat afloat, after which he was taken in tow by the schooner Alert of Biloxi, Capt. Calvin Ladnier, and : brought to this place yes terday. At the lime the lugger Second Hope came to his assistance his supply of dogtneat was well nigh exhausted, 1 and a few days more -on the island would have resulted in his death by starvation. Mr. Walden was sixty-three years old last month, and is a member of the Grand Army of the Republic. He en listed in tiio Third Massachusetts cav alry and served throughout the war. He was without family and was en route to Florida, where he owns some property, and where he expects to spend the remainder of his days. He is here now without means, but has two months' pension pay due him amount ing to $20, on the receipt of which he will continue his journey by rail, as it is his intention to sell the boat here. He has had an experience of twenty seven years as a seaman, but says this is the closest call he has ever known. Mr. Walden is an intelligent old gentle man, but says he is somewhat behind on the current events of. the day. as he has not seen a newspaper since the 20th of last November, and that was eight days old. The boat in which he made the journey from Minnesota is 22 feet long, 8 feet beam and 20 inches deep.

The Commercial club gave a reception and smoking concert last night in honor of the members of the legislature. The elegant rooms of the club were well filled, and among the gentlemen were a goodly number of senators and repre sentatives. A letter of regret was read from Gov. Nelson, stating that execu tive duties prevented his being able to accept the invitation of the club to be present. An address of greeting to members of the legislature was deliv ered by Eli S. Warner, who stated that the club desired to become acquainted with the legisla tive an.l executive branches ofthe state. He explained the purpose of the club as being more in the nature of promoting the trade, commercial and manufactur ing interests of the city and state rather than having political or social designs. In his address he expressed a hope that members of the legislature shall aid in state development. The club expects co-operation in its work. Mr. Warner averred that he meant no flattery when he stated that the legislature had done well thus far. lie was glad that Hon. C. K. Davis had been elected as senator —all the members of the club, he said, : congratulated tne legislators on this election, although in the face of "most corrupt opposition." Prof. Edwin Neale, of Chicago, enter tained the audience for a half hour with, clever slight-of-hand work, and his call ing to his assistance several prominent senators and representatives created hilarious amusement to I'ne discomfiture of the legislators. W. 13. Parsons sang a couple of bass soios in an edifying way. Emil Straka rendered Wieniawski's mazurka on the violin with such excellent touch that he was encored, and rendered his own composition— a lullaby. Mr. De Celle also assisted with vocal solos. Frank! Q. Swasy did some clever piano work. - During an intermission in the pro gramme luncheon was served in the dining room. GEORGE'S NATAL DAY Will Be Suitably Observed by Revolutionary Sons. As far as the Minnesota chapter of the former is concerned, there is no want of sood feeling between the two patriotic orders of the Sons of the Amer ican Revolution and the Sons of the Revolution, In other parts of the country a considerable rivalry between them has existed, and bad blood has threatened on more than one occa sion. At a meeting yesterday of the Minnesota society of the first named order a resolution was adopted instructing the delegate* to the national convention at New York to use their influence in securing a cordial amalgam ation of the orders. Iv this move, while Minnesota does not actually take the lead, it is in the foremost ranks of those who are in favor of a concert of purpose and action among those whose objects aud ideas are the same. At the meeting yesterday the question of the annual observance of Washing-! ton's birthday was disposed of. The idea of a banquet was opposed on tho ground that it was not sufficiently elevating, and it was decided to observe the day with a public ineettntr in the hall of "the house of representatives, at which Washington's farewell address to the army will be read, together with other patriotic and suitable productions. A committee of five, of which Senator McMillan is chairman, was appointed to take charge of the programme and arrangements.

Prof. White's Bible Study Series :. i Attracting Attention. j Prof. White took up the work of Bible study last evening where he left off the night before, but for the sake of those who were there for the first time he reviewed the historical setting of Amos in order that tliey might the bet ter follow- the advanced work. Mrs. Cochran gave a very full report of the chapter analysis ot the chapter under consideration. Mrs. J. A. Williams gave a very comprehensive explanation ot the first eight verses. W. L. Wilson cave a report on Uzzia, king of Judah, while Frank FurgesonJ report ed on Jereuoam 11., king of Israel. '1 he moral and religious situation in the time of Amos" was interestingly re ported by Mrs. A. W. Harrison, while the political situation was reported by W. P. Jewett. The second part of the hour was taken up by a presentation of the period of the "First Return Under Zerubbabel." The professor set very clearly before the audience the three captivities, or periods of the captivity, the first in 000 13. C. when Daniel and his tliree companions were taken into Babylon, the second in 5.).) or 593, when Ezekiel anil others were taken, and the third in 583 or 580, when the temple was completely destroyed, ln this connec tion he brought out a very in teresting fact— that there were three periods in the return, each being about seventy years from its cor responding captivity. F. O. the first captivity was in 000 or 035, the lirst re turn was i 1 1535, making seventy years, etc. The progessor noted another very interesting fact in connection with the second chapter of tl«e Book of Daniel. Daniel began to prophesy about the year G3O, and in the figure used by Daniel we find that the Babylonian kingdom existed for seventy years, or through the captivity; this kingdom was represented by the head of the image, then follows the Medo-Persian, continuing for 201 years, represented by the breast and arms; after that comes the Grecian, represented by the belly and' thighs, ami finally the Roman, represented by the legs and feet, and Rome was in the height of its splendor when Christ came. He also made interesting remarks on the sev enth anil eighth chapters of this same book. One remarkable thing in the professor's work is the tearless and at the same time gentle maimer "in which he expresses himself. He makes sure of the truth, and then nothing will hinder him from expressing it. To fully appreciate his work one must needs hear and see him; and to do this once almost insures a repetition. The lecture Cot- today is at 4:30 p. in.; note tho change in the hour. The chapter under consideration is the fourtn of Amos. The work in chronology is the 1 period of the second return, simplified 'by [charts. All those attending should .bring Bibles.

YOUNG FOOTPADS. A Precocious Gang Hounded Up by tho Police. A gang of youthful highwaymen was rounded up last evening by Detectives McGuiggan and Meyerding. The pris oners are George Decker, John Mosic and John Somlenski. Monday night an elderly man, whose name cannot be learned, was held up ou Eighth .street, near Broadway, and robbed of a gold watch, pair of gold eyeglasses, scarf pin and $2 in money. As soon as he recovered his breath, the highway men before leaving having kicked him in the stomach, lie shouted for the po lice, and on the arrival of an officer told his story. Not heinir perfectly sober when he met the fellows, he was un able to give a very accurate de scription of them, but it was sufficient to enable the detectives to pick up Decker as one of the sang. Arriving at the station Decker was turned over to Chief of Detectives McGinn, and after a half hour spent in private with that gentleman Decker weakened and told all about . it. According to his story Somlenski anil be walked the victim down Eighth street and while Somlenski held the man up he went through Ins pockets. Yester day morning the booty was given to Music, who pawned the watch ou Jack son street, and gave Decker and Som lenski 75 cents each, el aiming he only received £-.2 for the timepiece. About 10 o'clock the detectives arrested Mosic, and shortly after Somlenski was gathered in. The watch was recovered at the pawn shop and is now at police headquarters. Music, who has served a term in the reformatory, was charged with receiving stolen prop erty, and Somlenski and Decker with highway robbery. Mosic is also wanted for the larceny of an overcoat from Philip Becker's residence at East Sev enth and Forest street. KIEHLE GETS THERE. Gov. Nelson Reappoints Him Su perintendent of Schools. Muehlberg Made Adjutant Gen . oral— Bevens' As- sistant. The unexpected does not always hap pen, but it often does. No one would have supposed that, after the expressions of popular disap proval uttered at the meeting of the state teachers, Gov. Nelson would have appointed D. L. Kiehle superintendent of public instruction, but that is exactly what he has done. He got a quiet mo ment all to himself last evening, and issued the order. There is no doubt that a hard light will be made in the senate over the confirmation, but it will go through«all thesame. Being in that mood, his profound ex cellency made two other appointments, and they will meet as little public favor. He named Hermann Muehlberg, of Car ver county, as adjutant general, and 11. T. Bevens, of Stevens county, as assist ant adjutant general. There will cer tainly be a howl over these appoint ments, and especially over the removal of Charles .1. Humason. who now so satisfactorily holds down the oliice of assistant. 11l in Chicago.
