They did not confer, however, in fact, they didn't speak. Itis pretty evident tnat there are several reporters in Minneapolis who will be able in afew days to beat Zola on a sensational novel. Itis truly unfortunate that the Re publican* cannot charge the Demo cratic administration with wrecking the Commercial Bank of Newfoundland. JiMAV Ralph says China is not a nation. You are right, Julian. China is a mob making bicycle time to see which shall get the farthest from the Japanese belligerents. Mankato is preparing to give a demonstration ot how much hades a bundle, of letters can stir up. The amatory epistles will not be burned un til after the demonstration. It i^ in order for the Republican city committee to inquire whether llayward was not guilty of the avalanche of crime which swept down upon this city in the night, during the Wright administration It i~ discovered that there is a .Demo cratic bee In the presidential apiary labeled Carlisle, and he is developing into a bummer. Come to think of it. Kentucky has hardly had her share of presidents. The Penny Press is reminded that Rayward may also have killed Tollef wm, for whom the Barretts suffered the penalty of death. At the same time the Penny Press is probably willing to ad mit that the Younger brothers killed Cashier Hay wood, of Northtield, IS IT A PIUVILRGK? s»yi The criticism is made that the cur rency plan of Secretary Carlisle gives to tue banks formed uwder it a valuable privilege for which they make no corre sponding compensation. This is a re newal of the old dreenbackers' charge atrainst the nations! banks, and we find the advocates of free coinage, as well as some opponents of that eraxe. raising it now. There may be benefit both to the bank and the community in this issuing of notes to pass as money and perform ing one of its functions, but it is no more a privilege than is the issuing of a newspaper or engaging in trade or practicing dentistry or law, the last two of which are limited and regulated by law and yet make no compensation for the privilege. The money, actual and representa tive. Vised in making exchanges, forms but a minute portion of the machinery of exchanges, less than a tenth. Every draft and check and bill ot exchange is pertoiming in its course from issue to payment a function of money, and is a representative of money to a limited extent, and yet tlie making of these papers is not as yet regarded as a priv ilege to be paid for. A bank's note dif fers from the individual's only in its feature of instantaneous redemption when presented. It is a promise to pay the bearer on demand, without grace, the sum expressed on its face without interest, just as would be the demand note without grace of a private person, payable to btarer with interest after dm 1. There is no law prohibiting a man from making erfeMMM his own notes, or may one from taking theoi iv exchange for property: and. as every man knows, the right to do this is a very valuable one. Tlm difference between trie indi vidual and fie bank is only in degree, each issuing their promises to pay, and each redreuung them when due. Any action of -government is only to insure a wider usetulness of these notes by providing such measures as will make positive the fullilltuent of the obligation to redeem them on presentation. It is a recognition by the government of a business custom, the outgrowth of the necessities of business resulting in an economy in the process of exchanging. Its intervention is not iv the interest uirec;ly of the issuer of the notes, but of the community, just as it comes in to guard consumers airatnst adttlteration of lood. If the banks were exercising a function of governmmit instead of a strictly private and p«rsonul one, there would be reason to ask them to pay for the privilege; but when it is ad mitted that tii* provhfiM of money is not a governmental obligation, this idea of a vaiuable privilege granted, lor which return sheuld b^ made, falls. In fact, the more this idea is exam ined the more fallacious and dangerous it oecome». It can rest only on the assumption that the totting ot money is primarily and exclusively a function of government, and that If it grants or delegates this nrivileire it. like all grants of rifrbt to use the power of the state, should be paid for. This leads directly to tlie position of Hie fintist, and makes possible the question: Why,tlien,should not all substitutes for metallic money be issued directly by the nation? We think tlie advocates of thn doctrine of privilege will be bothered to escape Fran the conclusion their premise leads to. PIU:PAKAiIO.\ NKJCDBO. The air is full of suggestions for legis lation, all directed toward remedying existing conditions, that run the gamut from positively injurious to merely an noying. Most of these proposed meas ures will merely add to the present iib eral supply of pavinir material tor that place where good people do not go when they have found this life too much for them. The session will open with a maelstrom of ambition, greed and corruption, mixed with somewhat of honest purpose, with the senatotship for its vortex. Minnesota legislators have been too iong trained to expect a feast ot boodle and a tlow of stutf on such occasions to bo satisfied with a tame and perfunctory selectiou if it can ue avoided. But there is one matter that is of im portance, in view of the legislation of congress reasonably certain of enact ment, that should have the early and carvful attention of the legislature, be ginning with the selection of the speaker and his selection of the com mittee on banking. Notwithstanding the sneers of oppositiou that are filing at Secretary Carlisle's currency plan, it will, in its substance, be framed into a measure that will uas^. and the feature relating to state banks will be in it. The South and the West will demand and get relief from the pit-sent practical monopolization of currency issues by the national banks, and the state bank feature will be the strongest part of the measure. in this connection, then, it is neces sary that our present hauk law relating to note issues be examined and amended to conform to the requirements of the proposed national law, wliicii will re move the 10 per cent tax on the issues of otate banks that comply with it. A comparison of our present law and the requirements suggested i>y the secretary shows Uie changes needed in the former. The tax is to be taken from the note is sues of state banks whose circulation is nut in excess of 75 per cent of ih ir cap ital, paid up and unimpaired; whose stockholders are individually liable fur the redemption of their circulating notes to the full amount of their stock: whose notes constitute a first lien on the assets of the bank; which keep in the guar antee fuud a sum equal to 30 per cent of their outstanding circulation, and have promptly redeemed on demand their notes at their counters.or their branches if they have any. Our banking law forms chapter 33 of the statutes and was framed before the adoption of the national banking act, and, as state bank issues were soon after taxed out of existence, it lias not been amended in its provisions relating to note issues. It provides that persons or associations may deposit with the state auditor the bonds of states that r»ay semi-annual interest or United States "'stocks" that bear at least 5 per cent iuterest, which securities are to be assigned to tha auditor, who thereupon issues blank notes, countersigned by him, to the full par value of the securi ties. No bank can have less than $25,000 capital or be located in a town of less than 200 people. On failure to redeem its notes the auditor is required to sell the securities pledged, and with the proceeds pay pro rata the bilitiolders. Another section gives the billholders preterence over all other creditors of the bank, and an other makes the notes redeemable only at the bank. This act was drawn in compliance with section 13 of article 'J of the constitution, which was framed after the experience of the West with wildcat banks, and is stringent in its provisions. Unless the word "stock/ used in the constitution when referring to the securities used as basis for the notes, can be construed into including the notes of the United States required by the Carlisle plan, an amendment of that instrument may be necessary. The constitutional provision making each stockholder liable in double the amount of his titock for the debts of the bank would satisfy one requirement, but the law relating to the securities would have to be amended, and also the provision as to the amount of the note issues. The law should be amended so as to bring it in harmony with whatever law the congress may enact. It ia this probability, the opportunity of the peo ple of the state to increase the circulat ing medium, that makes it a matter of unusual importance who is speaker ot the house and who compose the bank ing committee—a matter that should not be lost sight of in the contest over the seuatorship. Admiral lto's Japs did not more com pletely vanquish the Chiuese at Yalu river than did Dr. Price's Cream Bak ing Powder triumph over its wnuid-be competitors at tbe world's and midwin ter fairs. Lecture to Housekeepers. Let no housekeeper overlook Mr. Worrell's lecture in the People's church this afternoon, because there is no ad mission fee. Remember there are few lecturers so well paid, and the reason there is no. expense to those attending is because it has all been met by one of our oldest and best known manufactur ers. Notsiuipiy the products of the cocoa bean, but the entire range of food will be discussed. The lecture will be valuable, not only for the knowledge it will import in diatetics, but for its many praciical points which in no other way could be so concretely presented. Housekeepers failing to be present will doubtless regret their indifference when too late. Positively no postponement.

Harry Haywar<i, who It Is alleged plotted the minder of. Kittle Cine, is not the tine-looking man he has been pict ured. At a casual glance ht> is good looking. A study of his appearance shows that lie has a criminal's head ac cording to the famous French method of measuring and determining murder ers.

"1 fixed them myself." was Nics sur prised rejoinder; "they must be all unlit.'; As Keigher went out. another friend came in. and repeated the performance. "Something wrong with the beans, NMc," he said. "They taste soapy." A third man came in and went throuzh the same act. Nic was convinced. He took a mouthful of beans, then turned to his bartender and said: "By costi! They do taste soapy. Throw 'em out," and the bar boy threw out bowl and all. The beans were all right. * Do you all remember Fitzgerald, the Irish Republican with the long, tiowing black hair and the plutr hat, who was iiuite an active politician several years ago? Well, Ed Rogers has blown his horn aud resurrected the Fitzgerald and will appoint him chiet deputy clerk of courts iv place of Michael Jerome Red diiur, who has so efficiently filled the position for the past seven years. Just why Fitzgerald is to be appointed is not clear, for he has not been actively identified with the party for the last three years. He was recognized in other days as an energetic worker, but he soured on his comrades aud with* drew into a shell or solitude. This will be his second time on earth, and, of course, there's an object in it.

An the last interurban car from Min neapolis sailed down Wabaslia street, about 1 o'clock this noraing, a free-ror all fight was guing .on inside. Four or five men were striking, kick ing and yelling at each other, canes and umbrrellas were flourished around, and car windows were breaking at a great rate. When the car reached Seventh street Lieut, Bttdjr.of Merriani Park, saw the men fighting, lie called the central patrol wagon, ana the light ers were gathered in and taken to the «tation. One of them proved to be £. C. Devine, who once edited that choice publication styled the .Sunday Una. Ibe other three were tabbed under the nainos of B. Webster, Oscar Crooks and W. 11. Lepper. What caused the fisrht could not be learned. None of the quartette bore any marks of the tracts. The only object hurt was an umbrella winch had lost its haudle. AMONG THE REVIEWS. Th« Popular Science monthly. Dr. Mary Taylor Bissell discusses in the December issue the topic of "Ath letics for City Giris." She apologizes for the use of the term athletic in con nection with girls aa a word associated in the public niind with the more manly sports of football, base bail and boating, but claims for the word a more liberal sense, in which it may be applied to all of those out-or-door exercises open to the gentler sex. Th« first topic of in quiry she very naturally makes the' physical status of the girls ai:d thnr capacity for exercise tending to develop their physical powers. Physically she finds the American city girl to possess the first requisite of a line phy sique, height. Her own exam-i inatious corroborate those of others and show that in stature our girls surpass their Etmlish sisters, al though they are far below them in breadth of shoulders and span of waist and hips. The fad of slim Mist*, which drove so many women to distorting: their shape some years ago, has happily passed away, and the wasp waist is now as much regarded a deformity as it was then thought a thing of beauty. Dr.. Bissell huds two or three marked physi cal deficiencies, however, iv the shallow chest, in lack of symmetry in the body, and in the deficiency of muscular de velopment. AH of these she believes to be capable of rectification by judicious aud persistent exercise. The lack of bodily symmetry arises from faulty postures at school aud at home during the plastic period ol growth, and that it is not a natural defect is shown by the noteworthy fact that children aro not born deformed. Whatever the lack of symmetry that comes to them iv later years is the re sult of bad habits. That deficient mus cular development can be corrected is shown by the result of practice at the gymnasium, where the development was very rapid. Coming to the practical question of what forms of exercise are open to city girls that can be taken in the open air that bear some relation to atuletics, she finds that the athletics of tenuis and bicycling, aside from walk ing, are the niaia ones open to the aver ago girl. Of these she gives her prefer euce to the bicycle. The effects of rtd ing on the wheel are not as injurious as is claimed by some. The oft-instituted comparison of the wheel to the exercise eot by working the sewing machine fails at every poiut. She ends the exercise to be exhilirating and helpful. As au exercise to develop symmetry it is pref erable to riding the horse. Its other advantage is its accessibility to almost every woman, the constantly decreasing price bringing it gradually within the reach of all. Where a gytnuasium' is accessible, aud is under the care of com petent instructors, it furnishes the best tteans of muscular and symmetrical development of ail, its one drawback being that the exarcise is taken In doors. * * * A remarkably strong article is that of President Jordan, of ihe Lelandijtau ford university, on "The Need of Edu-. cated Men," being an address delivered to a graduating class of that institution.; "It is wisdom and strength that go to the making of a natiou," he says. '•There is no virtue in Democracy as such, or in Americanism as such, that will sava-us if we are a nation of weak lings and fools with an aristocracy of knaves for our masters." Tha article is a strong protest against the tendency towards collectivism as shown by the I multifarious schemes resuue ou pater- ; nalistic views of government, and is a strong article for the development of the individual. It is packed full of thought. The sentences ring like the blows of a hammer on the anvil. "The problems of Europe cannot be kept away from us by the quarantine of j Democracy." We have millions in' America "who eau never be free under any government or under any laws so long as they remain what ihey are." The remedy for oppression "is to bring in better men, who cannot be op pressed." We can nd no other. "The problem or life is not to make life easier,. but to make men strouger." * * * "Nature asks of man that he use his manhood." The misery of the man who puts no brain or soul into his work "is Nature's testimony of his worthlessness." » • • "Grown-up men and women are today in a sense past savin*. The work of the republic is to save the children." *.* • "There can be no collective industrial problem where each man is capable of solving hi 3 own individual problem for himself." • • • "Our industrial and social reforms lie in the direction of this education of the indi vidual. It gives him those reserves which enable him to overcome the dif ficulties of iife. It gives him reserves upon which he can draw. Reserves of property, reserv«s of character, of rep utation, of skill," Men with these re serves "have no need to beg for special favors." "All he abksof legislation is to keep out of his way. * * * He de mands no law of special guardianship or protection, lie pays as he goes. • * • The flag of freedom ha 3 never floated over a nation of deadheads. * " * The problems of govern ment are ever questions of right and wrong, which can be settled in only one way. They must be right. Whatever is settled wrong conies up for settle ment again, and this when we least ex pect it. This is true of the tariff and finance as well as the civil service. Each must be settled, and we must pay the set tlement." The whole of the address is replete with such common sense as this, teaching a lesson which the American people sadly need to learn. Astronomers think the inhabitants of Mars are attempting to communicate with us. The Harsit3S have probably caught a whiff or biscuit made with Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder, and are frantically signaling for them. CRASH IN NX W FOU.S'DLAND.

His whole appearance was that of ab ject wretchedness and terror. He cried hysterically, and was afraid to be alone with iiis guilty soul. Otiicer Novack remained at the door of his cell to pre vent any suicidal attempt on the Dart of the miserable wretch, and to keep him company, as it were. It had been ar ranged thai Blixt would be brought into the police court yesterday mornintE, but the county attorney did not think it ad visable. It was therefore decided to turn him over to the grand jury without a preliminary examination. A large crowd, iv a calm but ugly mood, collected about the central sta tion and eagerly awaited the murderer's appearance, it being expected he would be led through the crowd to the police court. But Blixt was not taken into court at all, and had he been, the secret passageway between the court rooms and central station would have been utilized. A rumor was started about 10 o'clock that Blixt had tried to kill himself, but it proved to be unfouudud. Unfortunate in Natno.

Historical Society After a Con epn.l«*<l Iteport. The executive council of the Minne sota Historical society held its regular meeting for December last evening at its rooms in the capitol, with President Kamscy mi the chair. Among the items of business in which the public may be mm* or less inter ested was a ivuewal uf an attempt made several years ago to procure a copy of the report Malta by th« congressional commission appointed to lake evidence as to Joss ot property by citizens of this< stale during tiie Sioux outbreak of is<)2. v\ith reference to their adjustment. It was decided to petition the coining legislature to me tnorialize eon Kress to publish or permit the state to copy the history of ttiat bloody outbreak as disclosed in the re port, a document winch has been thus far— nior* than thirty years—ueriuet icatly sealed to the public and historical societies. The resolution also covered the record of the court-martial which tried the captured red-banded murder ers, thirty-eight of whom were duly executed at Msuikato in December. 180: i. The committee appointed to eonsiier the matter of having public exercises in connection with the coining annual meeting of the society reported in favor thereof, and the committee was author ized, to make all necessary arrange ments for the occasion.

The committees of the St. Paul Chris tian Endeavor union met last night in the first annual session iv the Central Presbyterian church. The various committees planned their work for the ensuing yenr, and the following events have been partially arranged for. On New Year's uay will bts held a grand Union Prayer Meet ing and a reception for the Eudeavorers of the entire cilv, and Feb. 3 will be a Christain Endeavor rally day with a mass iiiefjtiiiit addressed by laymen, from the various churches. SOLIAI; niUFT. The flouting debt *f die Dayton Av enue Presbyterian church will be ma terially reduced from the proceeds of the successful entertainment given last evening at Ford's Music hall, for the benefit of the church, by Misses Edith Cline Ford and Harriet Mac Sibley. Iv recitation these two young ladies are admirable foils to one another. Miss Ford is at her Dest iv masculine and more forcible impersonations; Miss Sibley in the feminine and lighter parts. Tlris contrast was well developed in the dialogue from Howells' "Register." Since the time of Aristophanes the language of the frog has been a trifle ignored. "Brek-keJc - kek - *ck - kuax koax-koax" may not be a realistic imi tation of conversation upon the lake shore, yet who has cared to dispute the authority of a classical Athenian;' Miss Ford, in "How the Frocgies Go to Sleeo," showed the possibility of mod ern improvements, even In frog-talk. Miss Sibley has caught with much grace the difficult Italian-English dia lect, the wily coyness of thu Neapolitan widow, iv both she secured much ap plause when reading l)e Wile's con lulsiug interview between "La Cica" ana "The Senator." The ladles were both equally success ful in their tiiial Delsarle pantomime. A sweet, full soprano voice is pos sessed by Miss Harriet llale, and Percy Churchill, wiio appeared in the place of Prof. Madeira, sang with sympathetic effectiveness in harmony with his natural gifts. There was an excellent audience. "Why, 1 simply auore a man- with a military uniform," exclaimed one of the prettiest of the pretty fifirls at the armo ry last bveoinfe. It was at the ball giv en by Company C, First regiment, and was supposed to be a confidential con fession. Three officers within hfaring affected indifference, hut straight ened perceptibly. A civilian looked distressed. However, martial law pre vailed, civilians were few and happi ness was everywhere. Several hunured couples enjoyed the amplitude of the driii hall, where dancing does not mean personal collision and torn gowas. Sergeant Bunker explained that the curious arrangement of the gallery and stairways was simply for military convenience, and denied the intimation of Corporal Gil tillan that flirting facilities were included in the specifications. The retresuments were infinitely better than any soldier should aiiow himself to eat, while the Twin City mandolin orchestra successfully supplanted tue fife ana drum. The soiree musicale given last evening at the residence ot Mis. Charles P. Noyes, 89 Virginia avenue, for the ben efit of German Bethlehem church, was under the artistic uirection of Emil Obur-Hoffer. There was a very Urge attendance, and the entertainment was a success from every point of view. Superb in quality,efficient in strength, perfect in purity, is Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder. POLITICAL GOSSIP. Israel Bererstrom, |a candidate for chaplain of the senate, who lives at Litchtielo, was at the Windsor yester day. Timothy Byrnes, the hustling Re publican politician of Minneapolis, was at the Merchants' yesterday.

It is said that he has the senatorial situation lined up. and will declare himself, be fore lonjj. Several politicians from out in the state inquired at the Merchants* yester day for ex-Senator Sabin. That gentle man is in Washington, but will be home before the last of the week. ('apt.

The incident of Sab-n and Washburn meeting in the Marble room of the national capitol and not speaking was the subiect of com ment in the Merchants' lobby last nitrht. Another incident was re called by a gentleman present. It was a picture of Senator Sabin walking up the senate aisle some live years wo with Senator-elect YVashburn on his arm to introduce him to the sea ate for the purpose or taking the oath of olhce as his successor. Senator Sabin was described as doing the act with great grace, notwithstanding the fact lie had been defeated by the present senator after a hard and fierce hatlle. Mnrine movements.

His Writing* Are Pure and Nobla — Hash Criticism. The tirade in the Globe of Sunday against Mr. Garland and iiis work is in structive in several ways; but chiefly on account of th» knowledge it conveys Of the character of the critic. Mr. Garland's writings contain much, very much, tiiat is pure, noble ami ele vating. Even in the portrayal of the rude, the tuly, the uncouth, there i 3 plainly a no:.<le purpose. The critic who sees in Garland's writings nothing but the rouelupnrases and the coiumou place things—the grime and dirt of the farm and the squalor of city life—sim ply rinds what he was looking for, and is worthy of our pity. No pure and noble-minded man or woman can read the writings of Hamlin Garland with out having his better nature stirred to its depths, his sympathies broadened, his sense of justice strengthened. Even where he portrays the low, the common, the vulgar, or even the base and vile. tie does It In such a manner as to appeal to our manhood, to- make us wish that such things need not be, and to cause us to register a vow that we will do what little we can to remove the cause that condemns the great mass of maiiKind to sucii cramped and narrow lives. Garland is not pessimistic. He por trays tne wiong and injustice under which humanity struggles, only to point cut more clearly the open door to a bet ter and nobler way. I have known Mr. Garland loria and well: and. while I am frank to say that he does not possess the polish, tiie af fability, the art of saying little noth ings that please the shallow,aud usual ly cover a false and traitorous heart, he is the personification of a hisjh and noble manhood. His every thought is for the bfttermetit of mankind; and his whole soul is agiow with tiie purpose to do something, though it be lutle, to help bring on the day of emancipation, C. J. BUKU. LITMUA.KV NOTES. Lollie Belle Wylie, the Georgia pn> and sons writer, has written a song a.id composed the music thereto, which sue dedicates to Harry \V. Wack. of this city. The composition is entitled "Witch Hart." Its melody and beauti ful sentiment are truly indicative of thtj mind of this charming Southern author. whose verses of nature are the love and delight ot all her native Georgia. Mis. Wylie entertaint-d Mr. Wack while in? was in the South last spring. That St. Paul has produced some men and women who promise to add to the litenuure o( lh« day is again evidenced in the Overland Monthly, in which Pierre N. Boeringer, formerly ooe ot the popular youne men of the city, has a very characterful sKetch entitled: "Flotsam and Jetsam." This story pur ports to be the romantic truth about an item in the daily papers of Sa;i Fran cisco, the author's home. Beyond his literary product, which is sound and graceful, Mr. Bo<rint;er is the artist for that magazine. St. Paul will recall linn as a local optician, scholar and very popular rellow, especially among the younger Bohemians of ten years a^u.
