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

Minnesota's constitution for incurring
any indebtedness for the purposes de

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

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.

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

system of public roadmakiiig. All who

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
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.

Terrible Adventure of a Boat
man From Verndale, :
Who Went From There to the
Gulf of Mexico in a
State Solons Made at Home

Sons of the Revolution Will
Observe the Birthday
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
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 Members of the Legislature
at the Commercial Club.
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.

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.

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

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

NO GASOLINE THERE,
And How the Schocli Fire Started
Is a Mystery.
The insurance held by the Andrew
Schoch Grocery company amounts to
$63,500. This amount is divided as fol
lows: On building, $27,500; on stock,
$30,500; onengine,boiier and appliances,
$2,000; on furniture and fixtures, $3,500.
Mr. Schoch places the loss on stock
from £30,000 to $35,000, and on the build
ing from $15,000 to $20,000. The state
ment that gasoline was kept in tlie
building is denied by Mr. Schoch, who
says all the gasoline was stored outside
the building. How the tire started isa
mystery. The insurance men claim
there will be a salvage of 25 per cent on
the stock in the basement and lirst floor,
and that the building can be put in good
condition for $6,000 or $8,000. Tne ad

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

. oral— Bevens' As-
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
