Preparing- for the Knights of
Gen. William Bootn, the founder and
leader of the Salvation Army, arrived in
Minneapolis yesterday 11001; from Chi
cago. He was accompanied by a num
ber of "Army" celebrities, among them
being Col. Lawley. the general's aid de
camp; Staff Captain Maiam, Maj. Hal
pin; Capt. Taylor, correspondent of the
War Cry. and Lieut. Howard, who has
charge of the sale of the "Army" publi
cations. Commander Ballington Booth,
the general's son, who has charge ot the
forces in America, was expected to ac
company his father, but was taken ill
just before leaving Chicago and re
turned to New York. The party was
met at St. Paul by the officers ot the
local Army, and when the train arrived
here there was a delegation in waiting
at the depct.
The party was escorted to the Com
raericial club, where the general was
extended a warm welcome by President
Calderwood and Secretay* Dan forth.
After a brief reception the distinguished
guests were escorted to the East side to
the residence ot P. D. McMillan, where
lunch was served. Iv the afternoon a
reception was held at the residence.
The general will remain as Mr. Mc-
Millan's guest during his sojourn here.
The tour of this celebrated Sairatione
ist began Sept. 17, and will continu
until the close of February. During the
tour every city of consequence in the
country will have been visited; also the
larger cities of Canada. From here he
will work west, and will return through
the British Northwest.

shoulders are broad, and whose hair and
beard are white aud long. His presence
is imposing, and he looks of sterner

1887, but it is his first visit to the North
west. The Salvationists and their many
sympathizers in the city did him every
honor yesterday. They marched, to the
number of several hundred, from the
depot, when he arrived there, to the
Commercial club. They continued to
march about the city, never minding the
biting cold, but apparently enjoying it.
At the Exposition.
Gen. Booth held forth last evening at
the Exposition building. All the locai
Salvationists marched in a body with
banners Hying; ami to the music of fife
and drum entered the vast auditorium.
During the evening the Salvationists
maintained their repitation for the
demonstrative zeal. Singing on the
stage, in the pit, in the wintrs. singrin^
everywhere, was one of the chief feat
ures. A number of short addresses
were made by the various captains and
members of the general's staff. The
general was received with cheers by the
rank and file of his army. There "were
between 3,000 and 4.U00 people present
at the meeting.
The reneral spoke slowly, as if deeply
impressed with the solemn importance
of the work in which he is engaged. He
outlined his scheme for the ameliora
tion and uplifting of mankind. He said
that about 7u per cent of the female
waifs taken from the streets by ttn;
Salvation Army are educated for ttaee
years in the ranks of the Army, and
then situations are obtained for'them.
This also is true of the men taken under
the protection of the army. He paid a

deemed ones are ever the solicitous ear.

These colonies hare a piogramme
mapped out for them with mathemati
cal precision. The members will be
supplle.l with farming implements.
The tract of land constituting thtt home
of each colony will be divided into
small plots, each one containing a neat
cottage. The occupant will be required
topay a small annual rental.
The general does not intend, he said,
to found any colony in the United
States, but in some country not yet de
termined on. The army in Great Brit
ain comprises 220 institutions, divided
as follows: Shun posts, 04; ex-criminal

American people, and their generosity
was not confined to mere courtesies, as
he received financial assistance from

Of course, it is no easy matter to

THE GKAKUALi'S TRIP.
He Is Very Tired, But on Edge for
Gen. William Booth, commander in
chief of the Salvation Army, came up
from Chicago, on the Pacific express of
the North-Western, yesterday. Accom
panying him, as a personal staff, were
Col. Lawley, A. D. C, London; Staff
Capt. Malam. Turin, Italy; private
secretary; Capt. Taylor, London; War
Cry correspondent; Maj. Halpin, Phila

who is ill in Chicago, and who will re
join the commander and staff In Omaha:
aud Lieut. Howard, of New York, who
is officially known as the "Trade Man,"
his particular function being to look af
ter the sales of the Army's publications.
A Globe reporter, who boarded the
train on iis arrival in St. Paul, having
successfully run the gauntlet of the
general's numerous men-iu-walting,
was most courteously received by the
eminent Christian soldier, who was half
iecliniug in a private compartment.
"We had sixteen meetings in Chicago,
where 1 delivered as many addresses.
But 1 will be glad to tell you what you
would like to know—if I know it. *My
trip from Chicago has been most agree
able. Such accommodations. Why, It's
extraordinary. The roadbed is so
smooth. Really, there's nothing better
in England. 1 am greatly pleased."
Continuing, the general said briefly in
answer to the reporter's query: "1 have
three specific objects in mis visit to the
States: First, to see my people; second,
to confer with the American leaders of
the Army as to details of a further and
more general scheme of work in Amer
ica; and, third, to consider plans for
the enlargement of the work of the
Army on social lines."
"General, you have personally got

country 'advertising pays.' "
"Yes; 1 realize it: "and (with a sly

about this train yesterday, and when he
was informed that it was tar superior
to the train on which ho had come, he

scanned his surroundings and mur
mured again: "Extraordinary!" !
Gen. Booth's personal stall is com
posed of men who have earned their
present positions by their merit. There
is Col. Lawley, his personal aide-de
camp. He is the type par excellence of
an unctuous English Methodist, such a
person as one would expect to rind
laboring among the slums of London
on Sundays trying to reclaim erring
men and women. And no one need doubt
the colonel, with the big, lull red beard
in which a dozen gophers might
play at hide and seek without disturb

many such a Sunday in the highways
and byways of the British capital.

active, intelligent and affable young
man, and no doubt peculiarly qualified
for the delicate duties of his position.

it, and is an invaluable recorder of the

Lieut. Howard .looks like an "under

been a gay old boy before he was res

humoredly remarked to the Globe
man, who mentioned his resemblance
to the festive Bill; "and now you think
1 look like a humorist!" As if there
could be a suggestion of humor in a
Salvationist hustling for subscriptions
for the War Cry and other pleasing
The general intimated that he be
lieved the time was ripe for a great,
vigorous onslaught on the battlements
of vice in America.
"You have here your squalid centers,
you have intemperance, and everything
indicates that the time is auspicious for
more general and determined work by
the Salvation Army, 1 want to talk
with my people on these subjects, to
view the situation with my own eyes, to
! help, so far as 1 can, in the uplifting of
the people who most need a helping
hand." /;- >
The train was crossing tho viaduct
and entering Minneapolis union station.
There was a bustle of preparation, and
Col. Lawley, aide de-camp, put on his
great coat. Capt. Malam crowded his
papers into a grip. Capt. Taylor shut
up his note book. Maj. Halpiu looked
in through the door of the general's
compartment as if to say, "Sorry, but
time's up," and the old gtntfeman
donned a high cassiinere hat ami his
overcoat, the train halted, and John
O'Brien, of the •'Omaha," helpe<l the
general to aiight. At the gates there
were a number of Salvationists gath
ered, and they grasped the commander's
hand in turu as he edged his way
through the crowd. A committee from
the Commercial club seized him bodily
and took him to a waiting hack, which
proceeded decorously up Bridge square,
where, near the city hall, were been a
hundred or more Salvationists with a
baud and flying flags waitiDg to escort

through Brightest Minneapolis. And
so Gen. Booth made his initial appear

IT WAS A TIE.
Recount of the First Ward Alder
The recount of the First ward alder
manic vote yesterday resulted in a tie,
and it is likely Jacob Foell and Roman
Alexander will be obliged to draw lots
to see which one of them is to occupy a
seat in the council chamber. The fol

It will be seen that by precincts Foell

Alexander by the official count returned
to the council.
It is likely that Foell will take the
matter lato the courts on account of the
vote in the Seventh district, and to try
to secure his election by that means. If
he fails, even then he has as good a
show as Alexander, for they will have
to draw lots, So the recount is consid

self too large for the work in hand, and
Ijas divided or rather shrunk itself into
a committee of three. This committee
is to consider the plans for the reorgan

is composed of General Passenger

This.subeominittee was in session all

it will have its work completed in time
to allow the full committee to report at
the appointed time tomorrow. Th«
attitude of the Union Pacific is causing
some uncertainty, as it has declared
against the formation of an association
in the Western territory, and its repre

BUNG UP A NAVY,
Secretary Herbert in His Re
port Asks That Three New
Ships Be Begun,
TORPEDO BOATS ARE NEEDED
Necessity for Extra Arma
ment for Merchant Mar
ine Pointed Out.
THE NATIONS MONEY MILL.
It Did a Big Business Last
Year, Says Mint Director
Washington, Nov. 27.—The most
important recommendation made by
Secretary of the Navy Herbert in his
animal report is that congress authorize
the construction of three great bailie
ships of about 10,000 tons displacement
each, to cost, exclusive of armament,
not exceeding $4,000,000 each, and
twelve torpedo boats, of from 100 to 300
tons each, at the discretion of the secre
tary, to cost not exceeding au average
Since his last report five splendid
ships have been added to the naval list,
three of which are capable of speed In
excess of 21 knots, while two of them
are the fleetest cruisers in the world.
The rive vessels are the Marblebead,
5.44 knots; Columbia, 83.80; Olympia,
21.69; Montgomery, I'j.O.jG, and Minne
apolis. 2:*.07(5. One important change
of naval policy is noted iv connection
with the advertisements for three new
torpedo boats soon to be issued. Thu
secretary says that
No Speed Premiums
will be allowed on these boats; that the
premium system undoubtedly had its
advantages when adopted, but the de
partment is now convinced that the
time has come when, wit.'i the exoe
rionce gained it may with protit be
The report shows the number of tor
pedo boats now on hand in foreign
countries is 1.283 and the number build
ing 182. Great Britain has 175 on baud
and sixty-four building, while France
is even better off with 214 on hand and
forty-one building. Of seventeen coun
ties enumerated not one has iess than
twenty-two of these boats, while the
United States with more coasts and
ports than any nation, lias but six,
counting those yet to be built.
The secretary speaks in terms of deep
regret of the loss of the Kearsarge, and
to prevent the fairous name from laps
ins on the naval list he .suggests that a
battle ship be built to perpetuate it.
He also suggests that the renowned old
Constitution be put in repair and placed
on exhibition at the Washingtsn navy
yard as an object of interest to patriotic
The secretary has taken a cue from
the battle of the Yalu. and s^js he haa
given instructions that all but the nec
essary woodwork must be removed from
our ships. Attention is called to the
fact that although the government is
annually expending a large subsidy for
vessels such as the Paris and New York,
to secure their use in time of war, it has
not a nun to put on them. At present,
in case of war, Great Britain could
speed-ily arm her merchant marine on
the Great Lakes and do us enormous
damage, while if we had a reserve sup-
Dly of guns we could domiuate these
On this point—of preparation for war
in time of peace—the secretary makes
this very significant comment:
A Lesson From China.
"The latest and one of the most Im
pressive lessons in all history is now
being taught by China and Japan. A
nation, the most populous in the world,
able to put millions of fighting men
into the field, is now, after suffering
many disasters, scouring Europe and
America for munitions of war. It re
lied upon its numbers. Now it is buy-
Ing discarded guns and discarded am
munition, whatever It can get, to aid it
in repelling the assaults of a people
vastly inferior to it in numbers."
The secretary caused experiments to
be made at Newport to determine the
probable effect on the crew of a subma
rine boat of the explosion of torpedo
charges. Live animals were enclosed
in an old lay torpedo case which was
submerged in fifteen feet of water, and
charges of eighty pounds of gun cotton
were exploded at various distances
from 431 feet to 80 feet. No damage
was dove to the inmates, and It has
been tisiuoustiated that the crew of a
submarine boat will be safe so long as
the hull is not ruptured. But It was
Blade apparent by the denting of the
torpedo case at 80 feet distance that the
dunger to submarine boats from the
detonation of hi?h explosives must be
taken into consideration.
Notice of Secretary Herbert's inteu
tiou to create a
New Naval Station—
the South Pacific—is found in a para
graph announcing his purpose, now
that nearly all or our cruisers are ready
for service, to put into operation a pol
icy which will keep a number of cruis
lug vessels, sufficient for the ordinary
needs of naval policing and the protec
tion of our interests abroad on each of
six nations— North Atlantic, South At
lantic. North Pacific. South Pacific,
Asiatic and European. The report
states that instructions have been sent
to the admiral commanding in Asiatic
waters which, it is believed, will secure
the utmost possible protection to Amer
ican interests and the collection of val
uable information relative to the natal
battles fought there.
After again calling attention to the
urgent need of legislation for the relief
of the personnel of the navy, the secre
tary recommends that the reserve force
be increased by '.2,000 men.
In conclusion the secretary submits
estimates for the next year, azgrezat
ing 197,885,914, exceeding the current
appropriations by $5,4W5,M«, caused
mainly by the necessity of paying for
vessels now under contract. It is
stated that alter this year the appropri
ations on this score will rapidly dimin
ish—falling from HS.BfiO.SIB next year,
to $750,000 in the following year.

Bikmingham, Ala., Nov. 27.—1t has

headed ivolbite leaders in several North
Alabama counties have issued secret
calls for armed men in companies of
some 100 to 500 to volunteer to go to

The cull urtfes the Kolu fol
lowers "to maintain their rights

vent a possible raid upou the arms and
ammunition by Kolbites who may de
sire to arm themselves for their Mont
gomery trip. All the troops in the
state have arranged to ko to Montgom
ery, and it is understood that they will
carry their guns loaded. Gov. Jones
says that while he anticipates no trouble
tht) authorities are well prepared to
stamp out any disorder that may oc
cur. Kolb will not be arrested unless
be com m Its some overt act or collides
with the constituted authorities.

A VICTORY FOR PASKOLA,
It Receives the Official In
dorsement of Eminent
Experts and a Jury
The suit broueht by Ohio's \ j<j com
missioner aKaiust a Cincinnati druggist
for selling Paskola on the ground that
it was nothing but ulucose resulted In a
great victory for Paskola and a verdict
against the state.
DuriiiK tiie course of the trial Prof.
Shaller. of the University of Cincinnati,
testified that Paskola was not glucose,
and, even if it was, it would be harm
less. He also bore witness to its activ
ity as a digestive azent.
Prof. William Dickore, of the Miami
college, testifk'il to trie same facts. So
did Prof. Schmidt, the chen.ist of the
board of health: Prof. William Hoffman
A practical test was made in court,
showing the digestive action of Paskola
on egKB and meats of various kinds,
whereas glucose ' under precisely the
same conditions produced no effect
This test but confirmed the experts'
statements and proved Paskola to be of
great value In indigestion and wastiu?
This verdict disposes of the malicious
attack tliat lias oteii made against Pas
kola by interested rivals, and suits liave
vow been brought anainst the proprie
tors of a well known emulsion of cod
liver oil for having given wide circula
tion to a fnlse formula and other mis
representations regarding it.
The animus of this attack will be the
better understood when It is staled
thatPaskola is being largely used iv
the place of cod liver oil.
