IT SHUT THEH OUT
FRIENDS OF AIGSBURG NO LONGER
A PART OF THE UNITED
CHURCH
BUT ONE DISSENTING VOTE
MOTION TO ARBITRATE TO SECIRE

WAS VERY PROMPTLY TABLED.

Conference
A large part of the two sessions of the
annual meeting of the United Church yester
day was devoted to the friends of Augsburg,
the matter being disposed of by passing
resolutions as enumerated below:
The committee had amended paragraph 12
to the effect that the 12 suspended churches
shall be formally excluded from the* United
Church January l,lß97,provided that they do
not make satisfactory amends before that
time.
Several speakers said that the suspended
churches had de facto withdrawn from the
United Church, and that it was not proposed
to expel or excommunicate them. Rev.
E. E. Gynild, of Willmar, made an able plea
for tl>o" suspended churches and predicted
trouble for' the United Churches if para
graph 12 was passed.
Rev. P. Nillsen.ot Minneapolis.represent
-1n" tlie twelve suspended churches, was of
fered half an hour to defend their cause.
He refused to try to defend his cause within
that space of :inw, however the president
then read the names of the twelve churches
and asked whether any one present would
defend them. No one responded and para
graph 12 was voted upon,only one vote being
cast in the negative. Thus the twelve sus
pended churches will be formally excluded
from the United church January Ist, 1897,
provided they do not make satisfactory
amends before that date.
Paragraph eleven, as worded by the com
mittee, provided for a committee which shall
confer' with a similar committee from the
"friends of Augsburg" with a view to re
ccnciliation, If the seminary property is
Voluntarily transferred.
Rev. H. Raalkvam, of Coon Valley, Wis.:
Itov. O. E. Hofstad, of Canton, S. D. ;and
Rev. R. Anderson, of LaCrosse, made speech
es urging conciliation. Mr. Borreson was
in doubt as to .the wisdom of appointing a
'peace committee*. No one, he said, could
tell with whom the committee would confer,
no less than three different parties claiming to
represent the owners of Augsburg; namely,
the board, the corporation, and the 'friends'
of Augsburg.
Rev. N. C. Brun. of Lake Mills, lowa,
introduced a substitute, practically suspend
ing all action until the next annual meeting.
This was defeated, and the original para
graph was adopted by a rousing vote.
Paragraph thirteen expresses the hope that
the twelve suspended congregations will re
pent of their "sin" in carrying on their
"schismatic work', and return to the Unit
ed Church.
Paragraph 23 prohibits all voting members
and all congregations from aiding any kind of
■work carried on by the twelve congregations,
the remedy against such misdemeanor being
admonition and eventual excommunication.
This paragraph received somewhat harsh cri
ticism from sveral speakers. Roy. Hildahl,
one of the framers of the paragraph, admitt
ed that he had never been in love with the
paragraph, and upon his motion It asw
struck out against a score of votes.
Consul Halle Heensland. of Madison,Wis,,
tionto elect a committee to try to secure con
trol of Augsburg Seminary by means of arbi
and several others introduced a written mo
tration. It looked as though the motion
vould receive a strong support. But Prof. •
N. Th. Mohn, of Northfield,Minn.,made a ]
gem of a speech against it, and When the
professor resumed his seat the arbitration
movement was out of sight, and the mo
tion was tabled.
Paragraph 24—The question of establishing
a theological seminary shall be referred to
t!ip next annual meeeting.
Paragraph £s—The5 —The congregations are re
quested to contribute to the support of St.
©l;if college, Northfield. Minn.
Another paragraph which very materially
curtails the liberty of the members of the
United church, is no 26. It is directed
quast-rellgiouß societies "resting on a Chris
tian foundation as laid down in the old and
hot: testament," and doubtless strikes some
Bocret societies. ,
3 :iragraph 27: One delegate shall be sent
to the meeting of the general council and one
to that of the general synod.-
Paragraph 28, relating to practical work in
each district, was referred to a committee.
Paragraph -'9 and 30 relate to the manage
ment of the Beloit childrens' home.
The meeting, by a rising vote, extended
thanks to Rev. P. S. Rasmussen, of Lisbon,
111., for his service in the Lutheran church.

XEW DOG ORDIXAXCB.
Panned 1»y the Aldermen- EiglittU
Ward School Goes Over.
Contrary to expectations the Eighth
ward school controversy did not oc
cupy any partof the atention of the
board of aldermen at the adjourned
meeting last night. The adjournment
was taken principally to consider this
subject, Aid. Kaldunski of the Eighth
ward having offered a resolution at
the first meeting of the new board,
to repeal the existing resolution call
for an adition to the Gorman school.
The resolution was referred at that
meeting tp"""Jhe corrimitteeon public
buidings, of which Aid. Kaldunski is
the chairman, and Aldermen Larsen
and Shepard. trie remaining members.
The committee announced the next
day that it would visit the site of the
proposed separate school building at
Albemarle and Wayzata streets. As
Aldermen Kaldunski and Larsen know
well the location of the ground, it
was expected that the committee
would submit a report last night,
which accounted for the presence of a
number of Eighth ward- citizens.
The latter were disappointed, for
Chairman Kaldunski did not submit
any report, and no allusion whatever
was made to the matter. Upon con
versing with some of the aldermen af
ter the meeting it appeared that sev
eral of them were opposed to taking
such action as would result in building
a separate school house at the corner
of Albemarle and Wayzata streets.
The event of the evening was the
passage of a new ordinance providing
for the licensing of dogs, and the a
doptlon of a resolution authorizing the
mayor to appoint dog-catchers.
The committee on license reported
adversely on Aid. Lindahl'a dog or
dinance, and recommended as £ sub
stitute an ordinance which amends the
existing measure in only one import
ant respect. The section of the pres
ent ordinance which says that ail dogs
running at large shall be muzzled, is
amended so as to provide that dogs
shall be muzzled only when the may
or shal so order. The ordinance re
quires the owners or keepers of dogs
to take out their licenses on or before
July 1. The license fees of* $2 for a
male dog, and $4 for a female dog re
main the same.
Aid. Lindahl said he would not vote
for the ordinance as it did not provide
any means of enforcement. The ordi
nance was passed by a vote of 9 to 1.
Subsequently Aid. Stutzman offered
a resolution authorizing the mayor to
appoint six men to take the dog census,
collect the license fees for dogs and to
capture unlicensed dogs. The resolu
tion specified that the six men should
be appointed from month to month for
a period not exceeding three months
from the date of the appointment, at a
compensation not to exceed $50 per
month. The resolution further author
i ized the mayor to apoint five men
I with a horse and wagon each, to as-
I sist the other men in taking the dog
j census and capturing the dogs at a
compensation not exceeding $3.00 a day.
Each dog-catcher is required to give
a bond of $300.
The resolution was adopted by a vote
of eight to two, Aid. Lindahl and Pre
sident Markham voting in the negative.
• Aid. Stutzman introduced a resolution
I providing for the appointment of a
j join* committee of three from each
body, to confer with the street railway
company with a view to requesting the
company to provide additional street
I car facilities for the employes of the
! Wood Harvester Works. The res
; olution was adopted, and Aldermen
! Stuteman, Lindahl and Kenny were
! appointed to represent the board of
j aldermen.
Aid. Kenny offered a resolution in
! Btructing the corporation attorney to
j ask the street railway company whe
j thor It intended to extend its^ present
j loop from Robert street to Broadway as
J requested by a previous resolution of
■ of the council. The resolution was
adopted.
Aid. Lindahl introduced an amend
! ment to the ordinance regulating pawn-
I brokers, second hand and junk dealers,
j which gives the mayor power to re
i yoke the license of any dealer convicted
in the municipal court of violating
any portion of the ordinance.
! The amended ordinance was referred to
the committee on license.
A communication from the mayor
'-.imouncing the removal of G.W.Guion
I from the police fores and of John. M.
j Garretty the former jailor at the cen
-1 tral police station, was received, and
the removals were concurred in un
animously. >

WORKfl\ THE CYCLE PATH
Will be Commenced at White Bear
Tomorrow
The road committee of the Cyeie Path
Association yesterday decided to begin
work on the White Bear path tomorrow
morning. The work will be commenced
at Cottaga Park, White Bear and continue
as long as the uione,- 'asts. The Associa
tion has the $208 raised at "White Bear and
about $200 addition*:. It wi!i cost about
$30 aclay to keep the jrew at work and the
Association hopes to receive enough addi
tional contributions to keep the crew at work
until the path is completed.
It is expected that the county coramtssion
erswill decide to begin work immediately
on the part of *.he path to be built with the
money the county has appropriated. The
plan is to have that work began on White
Bear avenue at the city limits and con
tinued toward White Bear '.o wcet the path
under construction by the Association. The
county commissioners v ill probably decide
to call for Wds at th'Jr meeting next Monday.
Between SSGO ami Ji.Oi'O wilt be needed to
complete the White Coar path and about
$200 for the Interjrbp.n path. The Town
and Country club has promised to raise
half of this sum.

BERRIES WERE BAD.
w
.Heat Inspector Destroys a Lot of
Decayed Fruits.
Meat inspector Janssen, of the health de
partment, does not confine his official duties
to the inspection of beef, mutton, pork and
poultry. He also has a critical eye out for
strawberries that have grown black in the
face, after smothering to death in the freight
trains. Mr. Janssen heard yesterday that a
number of Russian peddlers had purchased
nearly 200 cases of spoiled strawberries and
had carted them over to the west side, where
they were engaged in selling them to the fam
ilies of the poor, for the sum of 25 cents per
case,twenty-four boxes to the case. Mr. Jan
sen followed them up and finally ran upon a
number of them having in their possession
sixty-fourcases. The peddlers were industri
ously engaged in sorting out such berries as
could preend to have ever seen a strawberry
bed and placing them on top of the mouldy
mass in the bottom, of the baskets. The
meat inspector Interrupted the proceedings
with the announcement that he would pick
those berries. Thereupon he sent to the near
est grocery for a can of kerosene. While it
was on the way the peddlers scampered away
with two-thirds of the berries leaving behind
24 cases. Mr. Janssen saturated them with
kerosene and then renewed his pursuit. Ha
was aided in his mission by the peddler
whose berries had received an oil dressing,
and he soon discovered sixty more cases con
cealed in a cellar. A dose of petroleum de
stroyed their lucrative possibilities, whereup
on their owner guided Mr. Janssen to the hid
ing place of fifty more cases.
After soaking some 150 more cases, Mr.
Janssen called at the commission house on
commission row from which the peddlers pur
chased the berries. There he was informed
that the firm had disposed of the berries at
a nominal figure—the bare price of the emp
ty cases Just, as it wereto oblige one of the
railroads, which had a stock of the delayed
and decayed goods on hand which it desired
to get rid of. The peddlers now have the
empty cass bu tthy do not seem to place as
high a value upon them as the commission
house.
THE REDL'CTIO AD ABSLRDOI.
An Atlanta Lawyer Applies It to tlie
Silver Question.
To the Editor of the World:
Having been deeply impressed by the ar
guments of Judge Crisp, Bryan. Stewart,
Jones and other silver leaders, and especial
ly grieved, shocked and horrified by the "aw
ful crime of '73" as so luridly depicted daily
in the columns of the Atlanta Constitution
and other silver organs, I have changed my
views on the money question and am ready
to maintain the propositions following In
joint debate or newspaper controversy.
I accept the arguments of the advocates
of silver and agree with their remedy as far
as it goes. However, it does not go far
enough. Let us have plenty of remedy; In
fact, enough to make debt and poverty things
of the past—relics of the dark ages.
I am in favor of the free and unlimited
coinage of pig Iron at a ratio of 16 to 1
with gold by the United States alone, inde
pendently of all nations, and can prove by
the best authority obtainable that such a
policy on the part of the United States will
"raise prices," "put plenty of money In cir
culation" and give the "honest debtor a
chance to pay his debts," thereby making
the whole country prosperous.
Now, in the first place, it may be urged
by some "who do not understand the sub
ject of standards of value" that a free coin
age act for iron would not raise Its price to
a ratio of 16 to 1 with gold. To them I re
ply "the stamp of this government" and the
"legal tender qualities" of the iron dollar
would instantly make the bullion value of
pig iron the same as the mint value. "For
who would part with an ounce of this prec
ious metal for anything less than the mint
value?" —(Stewart, Jones md Bryan.)
Again, it may be urged that our mints
would be overcrowded with pig iron. I reply:
"That the price of pig iron having been
raised from $7.50 a ton to a ratio of 16 to 1
with gold the world over, no one would es
pecially care to carry it to the mints, since
the mint price could be obtained anywhere
in the open market."—Atlanta Constitution.
Next, it may be urged that gold and silver
would go out of circulation. I reply: First,
"This ia a mere assumption of the tools of
the money power which they cannot verify"
(Atlanta Constitution); second, "Suppose gOld
and silver do go out of circulation, is there
not. plenty of pig iron to take their place
and give the people plenty of money?"
(Bryan), and third, "That such an assump
tion mixes the idea of circulating medium
and standard of value —tnat gold and silver
would still be potential money metals, though
not in circulation, and would lend their help
towards raising prices and causing general
prosperity.' '—Crisp.
Then again, it may be urged against the
pig iron standard of value that wages would I
not rise in proportion to prices. The reply i
is: "Wages would be compelled to rise, since
no man would be fool enough to work for
$1 a day who could make $1,000 per day pick
ing up rusty nails and old horseshoes and
carrying them to the mint for coinage."—
(Hull.)
In addition, it may be urged by the money
power, by the "Wall street sharks" and the
"Bond street Shylocks" that we could not
alone go on a pig iron basis without an in
ternational agreement. "To such dastards as
dare to lay a limit to the pejwer of the Amer
ican people to do what they please, inde
pendently of all nations, I hurl their coward
ice and lack of patriotism back in their
faces."—(Bryan.)
The "crime'- 1 of demonetizing pig-iron took
place about two thousand two hundred years
ago, when certain "goldolators" and "silvef
ites," in order to increase the purchasing
power of their ill-gotten wealth, secretly
and "like thieves in the night" got the de
monetization act passed, repealing the good
old free:coinage act of Lycurgus, "the friend
of our ancestors' daddies." "Today China
is the only country on earth honest enough
to.coin iron, and there the happy laborer can
carry home the wages of his honest toil in
a wheelbarrow."—Atlanta Constitution.
A ruinous fall in prices followed the de
monetization of iron, and has continued for
upwards of two thousand years. I have cai
culated the losses entailed upon the honest
people of this world by that ruthless act,
but the figures are so enormous I fear a
revolution will ensue if the people learn
how greatly they have been robbed. But
facts are facts, and the best way to right a
wrong is to meet it squarely. "That loss is
$21,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000."—Coin's
Financial School.)
In conclusion I insist that the free coinage
of pig-iron will do everything that is claimed
for' silver, and infinitely more. The people
will be rich and prosperous. The once poor
man can pay his debts with his old stove.
Railroads can declare dividupis on old rails
and worn out rolling stock. The small boy
can pick up old nails and horseshoes enough
to support his family. " In flAfe, poverty and
debt can no longer exist!
—Slex P. Hull.

RULE IS EFFECTIVE TODAY.
HIS HONOR WANTS TIME TO AT
TEND TO OTHER MATTERS
MOREi IMPORTANT.
Mayor Doran has decided to estab
lish certain hours during which he
will receive applicants for positions and
delegations in behalf of applictaots.
Those hours will be from 11 to 12
o'clock in the morning and from 3:30 to
6 o'clock in the afternoon. ,
His Honor has been driven to this
course by thestream of visitors that
has poured into his office, waylaid him
on every stret corner,invaded his home
and hardly given him a moment since
his inauguration to attend to the ad
ministrative details of the city gov
ernment. The business of a large
number of those that visit him Is such
that it could wait until later, but the
competition for the various offices at
his disposal is so great that the poli
ticians of influence are besieged to
wait upon him. A great many of them
yield to the pressure simply as a meas
ure of self-defense.
The constant interruption to which
Mayor Doran has been subjected, In
most cases almost needlessly and to
the prejudice of the interests of the
city and of the candidates themselves,
led him yesterday to put his foot down.
By the establishment of fixed hours',
during which alone visitors will be
received, he expects to get time to
attend to some of the important de
tails of the administration which de
mand his attention. He stated yester
day that such action was really in
the interest of the various candidates
as it would give him time to look into
the merits of each and all.
The rule goes into effect this morn
ing. No exception will be made to it,
so far as merely political business is
concerned. The only persons who will
be admitted will be officials who come
on official business and those who have
busines of a public nature. This rule
wil, of course, only be in effect so long
as the rush continues.
OLD-FASHIONED FAMILY.
It Consisted o* Father, Mother, and
Twenty-Four Children.
The venerable proprietor of a venerable
tavern in Otsego county had told the guest
from the eastern part of the state that he
had "raised" a family of seven girls and
four boys, and the gueat had complimented
him on the achievement.
"Yes," he said, "it wasn't so bad. But,
talkln' about fine big fam'lles, I don't be
lieve nobody ever seen a finer than the one
that put up at this house one day about i
thirty years a«o. That fam'ly filled four
wagons that pulled up here about two hours
before dinner time, and a strappln' t>lg fel
ler walked up to- me and 'nounced that his
people had to be fed.
" 'How many of 'm is they?' sez I.
" 'Twenty-six, 1 sez he, 'and all hungry.'
"'All right,' sez I, 'we'll fix 'em,' and I
runs, out to the kitchen and tells my wife.
She and the gals begins to hustle right,
away, and I goes back wohderin' wtiat kind
of a gang I had to deal with. Well, I soon
found out. The big feller-he told me aft
erwards^ that he was. sixtr-three' years old
but he didn't look more than fifty-he sez j
to me, 'I want to register their names ' l !
gives him an' old 'count book which had
som.. blank names and some writln' ma
terial, and he takes his pen in hand. The I
fust name he puts down was Bartholomew
Stryker.

A TimRIIU.E FLY.
The' Tset«*e, TOliieh African Explor
er* Sh» Dread.
London Chronicle, s
When we have been accustomed to
hear of the ranges of the tsetse fly in
South Africa that definite scientific in
formation on 4he subject cannot fail
to be welcome.-* Surgeon Major Bruce,
at the request of the Natal govern
ment, is investigating the habits, life,
history, etc., of this terriile cattle
scourge
The fly has been well-known for
nearly fifty years to be in some way
the cause of the disease known among
the Zulus as nagana, a term signifying
low or depressed in spirits. The genus
to which the fly belongs is allied to the i
common blood-sucking stomoxys, and ■
contains six known African species, j
for all of which tsetse appears to serve |
as a common name.
As showing the want of exact knowl
edge existing on the subject, it is stat
ed that observers and travelers have
even questioned the connection between
the "fly and the disease. Thus so emi
nent a dipterologist as Van der Wulp
has concluded that the tsetse is not in
jurious, or that its ill effects are ex
aggerated.
From Dr. Bryce's observations it
would appear that the fly is vivipar
ous, giving birth to adult larvae, a
most important fact hitherto unno
ticed. The disease itself, he finds, is
due to the presence in the blood of an
inoculated animal of a flagellated in
fusorian, a haematozoon furnished
with a membrane, or "fin," running
along one side of the body, with a flag
ellum at one end. The appearance of
this haematozoon in the blood is sig
nalized by a rise in temperature; the
incubation period is from seven to
twenty days, after which period the
haematozoa may be found swimming
actively among, and apparently "wor
rying," the corpuscles, the red-blood
corpuscles becoming very largely re
duced in numbers. With the progress
of the disease the haematozoa in
creases in numbers, and at the time of
their host's death may amount in the
dog, to 310,000 per cubic millimeter of
blood.
Dr. Bruce has demonstrated that it
is possible repeatedly to feed tsetse on
a healthy dog without producing dis
ease in that animal, showing that the
fly possesses no specific venom, but
that, if allowed to draw blood from a
diseased animal, or the carcass of one,
they wijl communicate nagana to
healthy animals. The disease is in
variably fatal in the horse, ass and
dog, but perhaps not necessarily so in
cattle, in which it runs a much slower
course. From some preliminary expc
riments, arsenic appears to have a
marked action on nagana, causing dis
appearance of the haematozoa, reduc
tion in temperature, and maintenance
of the red-blood corpuscles.
FIRST AMERICAN PLAYHOCSE.
Philadelphia Itoasis the Original
Theater on the American Conti
nent.
Philadelphia has the honor of hav
ing had the first theater wherein a reg
ular educated and talented company
performed, says the Phladelphia Times.
Up to 1754 no publicity could be given
to such performances, owing to the
fanaticism of the ruling powers, hence
it was necessary to observe a degree
of caution in giving such exhibitions.
This theater was in the southern part
of the city, in the immediate neighbor
hood of the site of the Lokley house,
Little Dock street. The early perform
ances of the company must have been
about 1747-'4B, for a city ordinance,
dated Jan. 8, 1749, calls the attention of
the authorities to "certain persons tak
ing upon themselves to act plays In
this city," eftc. The certain persons
alluded to were regular comedians from
Europe, consisting of Mr. Kean and
Mr. Murray, managers. Thomas Kean
was a gentleman of education, a writ
er and a lecturer. The company in part
consisted of Mr. Trenraine-Woodham
(Iago), Scott, L-aigh, Smith, Moore,
Marks, Miss Nancy George, Miss Os
borne, Mrs. Taylor, Mrs. Davis and
Mrs. Osfoorne. In consequence of the
opposition the company met with in
Philadelphia the managers applied to
the proper authorities of New York,
and, obtaining permission of the gov
ernor, they opened the first theater in
New York, on Nassau street, as the
first appearance of "The Philadelphia
company in New York," on the evening
(Monday) of the sth of March, 1750,
with "Richard III."—Mr. Kean, Rich
ard. The first tragedy played in this
country was "Richard III.," the first
comedy Dryden's "Spaxish Friar," the
first musical piece "The Beggars' Op
era." Messrs. Kean and Murray closed
tneft"iteas&n July 8, 1751.
