MR. LOWRVS ORIJIXANCE.
Aldermen Will Sleet to Consider It
The board of aldermen will hold a
regular session this evening. The prin

will be the new street railway ordi

President Lowry. A number of ordi- j
nances have been prepared by members
of the council in the past sixteen
months, but the measures appear to
have not been of the right kind, for
the street railway company. The one
to be submitted by President Lowry
will, it is thought, be just what the j
street railway company demands and j
will accept. Several of the councilmen, j
seen yesterday, advanced the opinion |
that all the company desired was de
lay, and that Mr. Lowry had taken
the proper stpps to meet this end.

JOHH CLARK'S 1»15D
IS STORED WITH MEMORIES THAT
THE PIOXEER PRESS EDITOR
IN 1890 THERE WAS A SCARE
LEST CLARK MIGHT BE OUSTED
BY THE REPUBLICAN VICTORY
AT THE POLLS.
GRIFFIX WAS XOT THE BOSS
When John Clark Was in Office,
Nor "Were There Scandals Like
the Present One.
The Pioneer Press went to the trouble
of admitting yesterday morning that
the police department of Mr. Doran
is and has been for the whole eighteen
months of its existence, entirely in
competent, but insists that a whole lot
of the inefficiency of the force was in
herited from the Democratic chiefs of
police and detectives. It called John
Clark, the best chief of police St. Paul
ever had, by name, and said he was
at the head of a system of "levying
contributions on saloons and houses of
ill-fame." When Mr. Clark saw this
he was furious. He said:
"I wish the editor of the Pioneer
Press would go back to his files of
April, IS9O, and read what he then said
about the police department of St.
Paul, in which he expressed the fear
that if Mr. Kiefer was elected mayor
of St. Paul and a change in the police
force resulted, the town would be over
run with thievts. I was at the head of
the police department then and handltd
it almost exactly as I did during the
last term of Mayor Smith. Th* editor
of the Pioneer Press does not need to
be told tha* when I was chief of police,
I did not go around looking for some
body to lay the blame to in case there
was a series of robberies. I accepted
full responsibility myself. This ad
ministration, having admitted that it
handled criminals with the advice and
cor sent of 'Red' Griffin, tries to square
itself by saying, 'The other fellows did
it, too.' This thing has gone far enough.
Let me say with full emphasis that
during the time I was chijf of police of
St. Paul I never had anything to do
with criminals except to catch them
with all possible speed and see that
they got the full limit of the law. 1
employed no 'stool-pigeons' and none
of the detectives were indicted while I
was chief. Another thine:, the Pioneer
Press has a good deal to say about the
model police force of Mayor Wright.
Its memory must be very short. Dur
ing almost that entire administration
the town was full of 'big mitt joints'
and 'steerers' and there were almost as
many highway robberies as under the
Doran-Grifßn administration. I be
came a member of the police force in
1871, and I am proud of the fact that
there were no scandals in the depart
ment in all the time that I was its
TEX LOUS' FIXE.
Xot Lomis d*Or in This Case. But
Mayor Doran bgan his reformation
of the police department yesterday.
Instead of beginning at the top, how
ever, he had Louis Liverpool, the col
ored janitor at the central station, on
the carpet and fined the rotund Louis
$10 for using abusive language to
Frank Grombay. The latter is a cook
and lives on the West side. One day
the latter part of last week, he was
searching for mushrooms on a vacant
lot near Liverpool's home, when the
colored janitor w^nt to dinner. Whether
Louis coveted: the mushrooms or had
overheard some of Chief Goss' special
orders being "hereby promulgated" by
listening at a key hole at the station,
he did not inform Mr. Grombay, but
according to the latter, became very
officious and met a refusal of Grom
bay to give an account of himself with
some decidedly inelegant language. Mr.
Grombay reported the affair to the
mayor and Saturday Janitor Liverpool
endeavored to justify his course before
his chief. Yesterday Mr. Grombay and
Liverpool faced each other in Mayor
Doran's presence, and the colored func
tionary's salary for the present month
will be $10 shy.
TO BE JIDGE M'GEE.
That Is the iiossip of the Governor's
It is whispered among Minneapolis
men who are pretty close to Gov.
Clough, that John McGee will be ap
pointed to fill the vacancy on the Hen
nepin district bench to be made by the
resignation of Judge Russell. That the
governor has made up his mind as to
who he would appoint has been known
for several days.

THE SAINT PAUL CxU>3S, TUESDAY, OCTOBER 19, 1897.
GOL TIETZ SGORES
WITH A PARTY OF SUPPORTERS
HE FORCES ENTRANCE TO
SURPRISED THE WATCHMAN.
THE RECEIVER XOW HAS POS
SESSION OF THE BUSINESS
BIT NOT THE COMPOSING ROOM.
Col. Sclieffer Declares Tliere Are
Other Offices, but Only One Place
to Print the Paper.
When the bells in the city hall tower
chimed out midnight last night the cur
tain was rung down on another act
of the Yolkszeitung comedy, and, al
though the play took on several of the
elements of the melodrama, no blood
was spilled, and the popular German
paper will make its appearance today.
Receiver Tietz is in the saddle, his
editor in chief, Albert Schaedlich, is
with him, to say nothing of Albert
Wentink and E. V. Lorenz, two loyal
friends, and "Buff" McManus, who may
not be up on German editorial ethics,
but who was the "real thing" last
The unexpected always happens, and
this was very unexpected. Since Co?.
Albert Scheffer and his ready-made
editors have been publishing the Volks
zeitung, they have had several Pinker
ton men stationed in the composing
room and office of the paper. In addi
tion Douglas Tousley has been acting
as watchman, and spending his time
nights reading the Gez-man exchanges,
and getting up copy for early morning
composition. When the sun set last
night these people were left in charge
of the place. After nightfall skirmish
ers from Receiver Tietz's camp kept
watch of the place, and when a mes
senger brought a modest basket cf
lunch to Night Editor Tousley, the re
port was forthwith made to Col. Tietz,
who lost no time in gathering up the
people mentioned above and station
ing them on Third street nor far from
the Volkszeitung office. When Tous
ley was nearly through his meal, they
crept cautiously near the entrance, and
when he unlocked and opened the door
to let out the messenger, Lorenz in
sinuated his foot between the door and
the jamb, and at a signal from Col.
Tietz his forces made a mass play which ■
created much consternation in the
minds of the watchmen and detectives
and landed the invaders clear behind
the counter over which patrons sub
scribe for the Volkszeitung.
Mr. Tousley saw in a minute that
they were "it." He was outside the
counter and they in. He took his
leave for the purpose of acquainting
his retainers with what had occurred,
leaving the Pinkerton man on the
premises. The latter declined to be
ousted, whereupon Col. Tietz gave or
ders to have him carried gently out in
the street out of harm's way, but res
cinded the order upon the suggestion of
Mr. Lorenz. The Pinkerton man was,
however, invited to take a seat on the
other side of the office and watch over
the property of Mr. Bergmeier. This
he did. The news of the strategy
spread like wildfire, and the office tel3
phone was kept busy for some time,
answering questions. Col. Tietz could
hardly contain himself.
Had he not captured the fort, was he
not again among the familiar papers,
and would he longer be forced to read
in the paper the very thing he himself
had written, and for which his succes
sors were being given credit? All these
things made him happy.
With Col. Tietz had come a man with
an injured hand, which he carried in
a splint, but with an undying loyaHy
to Col. Tietz. This man was stationed
on the inside of the door, and given
I instructions to admit nobody. Mr.
"Buff" McManus was instructed to see
that this order was carried out. Then
came the officers whom Col. Tietz
warmly welcomed as shewing that. Mr
Scheffer's alleged statement that all
Col. Tietz's friends were policemen and
saloonkeepers was not really correct.
The policemen, however, were there,
but when the officers found that its law
had been broken they took their de
parture and the besieging party made
preparations for the night.
Editor-in-Chief Schaedlich must go
home to be right for duty this morning.
Col. Tietz would remain and resist all
efforts at recovery by Col. Scheffer.
The man with the bad hand and the
loyalty would also remain and would
be accompanied by Mr. "Buff," who
talked in the most facile mariner of
restraining orders and foreclosed mort
gages, and that sort of thing. The
hours dragged on slowly.
Meantime Night Editor Tousley had
notified Col. Scheffer, who had sent
for Attorney Nelson, and later Mr.
Bergmeier put in an appearance. While
they were holding a confab itisv the
corner of Third and Robert, C>l. Tietz
was saying to his admiring friends:
"We shall get out the paper tomor
row. We hold the fort. We shall pay
no attention to the slurs which these
people have handed to Mr. Schaedlich
and to me. lam quite willing to leave
it to the judgment of the good German
people of this city as to whether we
have done right or wrong in rescuing
the paper from Albert Scheffer, who
has played hob with the Germans bj
his ingenuity and who has sought to
get away from them the last thing they
had — the Volkszeitung."
Col. Tietz said he felt there was little
chance that the opposing faction would
make any effort to gain possession of
the premises last night. He kept the
door locked tightly against all comers,
just the same and admonished "Buff"
to watch the Pinkerton man while he
laid down on a sofa behind the wire
cage for a short nap.
At midnight Mr. Bergmeier, who
owns the stationery stock and job
printing plant, came on the scene with
Watchman Tousley. Patrolman Tschida
was detailed to guard the place against
"Open the door and allow me to go
into my own store," said Mr. Berg
"Do not open the door," said Col.
Tietz from the sofa.
"Come around in the morning," this
from "Buff" McManus.
"But this is my store and I insist
upon being admitted," was the way Mr.
Bergmeier made his second attempt.
"Your store will be here in the morn
ing," was the best he could get from
A CHILD CAN USE THEM.
It's Easy to Dye With Diamond
Dyes — Give Colors Fast to Snn,
Soap, and Washing-.
Some people think it is a difficult
matter to do their own dyeing-. It cer
tainly is with the old-fashioned dye
stuffs and with many of the crude
package dyes upon the market, but
when the original, reliable Diamond
Dyes are used, it is but little more
trouble to get fast and beautiful col
ors than it would be to wash and
rinse the goods. Do not allow your
dealer to force upon you imitations of
the Diamond Dyes on which he can
make more profit, but insist on having
the genuine that have stood the test
of years of use in thousands of homes.
Mr. McManus, and he turned to Officer
Tschida, who explained that he could
do nothing, and Mr. Bergmeier and
Watchman Tousley went to the Ryan,
where Col. Scheffer and Attorney Nel
son heard the news with considerable
Col. Tietz insists that he will get out
the paper. The, Scheffer people inti
mate that the men employed to get out
the paper are retained by them and
will not work for the receiver, and that
therefore they will get out the paper.
The refusal to admit Mr. Bergmeier to
his own place, t^hey say, will lead to
other interesting things. Somebody
will probably get out the paper before
the hearing in the case, which is set for
this afternoon, can be finished.
It was a question last night who had
the better of the situation. Col. Schef
fer said they had the composing room
and would get out the paper. They can
get along without the business office.
Col. Tietz says he will get out the
paper. Without a composing room he
may find it difficult. However, it is
certain that between all parties a
paper will appear as usual.
BEATS THE KLONDIKE.
G. B. Henton Think.* He Has a Spot
"This one is worth $265," said George
B. Henton yesterday at the National
hotel, as he took from his pocket a
large nugget of pure gold. "It isn't
from the Klondike, either; it's from the
state of Washington."
The nugget is said to be one of the
largest that has ever been found in the
United States. It weighs eighteen
ounces and measured just six inches In
length, and was about half as wide.
In shape it resembled the hand, and
was about as thick. It was of pure,
yellow gold, and had been valued by
the government assayist at Helena at
"Here is another weighing eight and
one-half ounces that is worth $123,"
said Mr. Henton, and he continued to
take nuggets of various sizes from his
pockets, handling them as if mere
pieces of stone, until the gold displayed
was said to be worth $1,000. He then
exhibited several pans filled with the
smooth, bright, umvashed nuggets that
were worth hundreds of dollars each.
In several small bottles was dust whicli
sparkled in the gas light, that was said
to be worth a large sum. "I left twen
ty-two nuggets in the window of the
First National bank at Seattle," said
Mr. Henton, "and have turned many
fine ones into the mint."
This gold was taken from the Elliott
mine, in the Swuak district, on the
Williams creek, about twenty miles
north of Ijlllensburg, Wash. The claim
vas opened last January, when a shaft
was sunk 103 feet. Preliminary excava
tions occupied the time until May Ist,
when gold was extracted. The first day
eight pieces were, taken out worth from
$20 to $30 each. Up to the present time
$8,000 have been taken from the mine,
and operations have just begun. W.
H. Elliott, a merchant of Ellansburg,
bought the claim; an old deserted prop
erty that had been "woTked fifteen years
ago, and was supposed to have been ex
hausted. He found a "pay streak" and
interested Mr. Henton and Dr. McCau
ley. Later E. J. Easton, of St. Paul,
was taken into the partnership. The
claim will be developed to its capacity.
Mr. Henton is now on his way to Chi
cago and Indianapolis, where he will
endeavor to secure money with which
to put in a hydraulic system. This will
cost nearly $100,000, as it is necessary
to purchase every claim to the source
of the creek. There are many old
claims in the vicinity, however, that
are being worked by Chinamen and
others, and they are developing con
"There is no ocean voyage, mountain
climbing or pack carrying in ours," said
Mr. Henton. "We make a 'clean-up,'
and can work every day of the year."
Clealm, the nearest town, which is on
the Northern Pacific, is but sixteen
miles from the claim. Our mine will
beat anything in the Cripple Creek or
the Klondike region, and we expect to
make it a big payer."
HER MteMORY DEAR.
Company D Sends Miss Minnie Berg
a Handsome Present.
It will be remembered that when
Company D, First infantry, N. G. S. M.,
visited San Antonio in July last, to par
ticipate in the inter-state competitive
drill held there, that Miss Minnie F.
Berg, of San Antonio, acted as sponsor
for Company D, and took a lively inter
est in the welfare of the company from
the far North, said treatment being in
marked contrast to that accorded tho
company and its individual members
by other individuals of the ancient and
honorable, with the accent on the hon
orable city of San Antonio. Upon the
return of Company D, to St. Paul, it
was resolved to present Miss Berg with
some token of esteem, which would in a
slight degree, at least, indicate the ap
preciation of the company for its
sponsor and her family, who were no
less active than herself in entertaining
the company. A token in the form of
a gold monogram composed of the let
ters Company D. set in diamonds and
sapphires, indicating the company col
ors, blue and white, has been made
from a special design by Bullard
Brothers. In a few days it will be for
warded to the parents of Miss Berg on
behalf of Company "D." The mono
gram is a handsome piece of jewelry
enclosed in a pretty case of blue and
EN ROITE TO WASHINGTON.
Archbishop Ireland Is on His Way
Archbishop Ireland, of St. Paul, spent
an hour in Chicago yesterday, says the
Monday Chicago Times-Herald. He
would talk only on one subject— his
regret that he could not remain in the
city to be present at the concert debut
of Miss Bessie O'Brien at Central Music
hall Wednesday night.
While waiting to take a Michigan
Central train East the archbishop said:
"Father Howard, of Springfield, 111., a
relative of mine, is Miss O'Brien's pas
tor, and from what I hear about her
and know of those who have interested
themselves in her. I would gladly make
the journey from St. Paul to be present
at her first appearance in America. It
would have been my pleasure to have
a box at the concert, but the fact that
the trustees of the Catholic University
of America, at Washington, of whom I
am one, hold an important meeting on
that date, makes it an utter impossi
bility for me to be in Chicago."
Archbishop Ireland was reticent re
garding the meeting of the Catholic
university trustees, and also in regard
to the conference at Washington on the
following day of all the archbishops in
the United States.

preliminary orders w*re recommended
to pass for the pavinfc with asphalt of

recommended an unfavorable report.
The resolution of Assemblyman

HE IS OFFICIALLY NOTIFIED
THAT HEREAFTER WORK ON THE
RIVER ABOVE ST. PAUL
CONDUCTED FROM THIS STATION.
Has Been Handled by the Engineer
at Rock Island — More Work for

Capt. Frederic V. Abbot, the United

Capt. Abbot announced that he had

St. Paul and Minneapolis was handled

whether it will necessarily entail an
enlargement of the local force, he was
not yet prepared to say, until he had
become more familiar with the situa

LIEUT. COL. M'ARTHUR ARRIVES.
New Adjutant General of the De
partment of Dakota.
Lieut. Col. Arthur McArthur arrived
yesterday from San Antonio, Tex., to
enter upon his duties as adjutant gen
eral of the department of Dakota, U.
S. A. He is stopping at the Ryan.
Col. McArthur is an interesting per
sonage in army life. A native of
Massachusetts, he enlisted when a
young man in the Wisconsin volunteer
infantry, serving with distinction dur
ing the Civil war. Aug. 4, 1862, he be
came first lieutenant of the Twenty
fcurth Wisconsin infantry, and at one
jump, in January, 1864, he rose to the
rank of major. He was brevetted a
colonel on March 13, 1865, and on May
18 following, he became lieutenant
colonel — still in the same Twenty
fourth Wisconsin, which saw some of
the hardest fighting during the war.
He was honorably mustered out June
The spirit of war evidently entered
into Col. McArthur's composition, for
on Oct. 23, 1866, he again entered the
service, this time in the "regulars."
He took the rank of second lieutenant,
but on the same day he was promoted
to first lieutenant and assigned to the
Seventeenth infantry. He was trans
ferred to the Twenty-sixth infantry
Sept. 21 of the same year. The next
July he was promoted to captain and
on July 5, 1870, he was assigned to the
Thirteenth infantry. He was enabled
to write his autograph, "Maj. Mc-
Arthur" July 1, 1889, and was then ap
pointed adjutant general of the depart
ment of Texas. On May 26. 1896, he
was promoted to the rank of lieutenant
It is interesting to note that Col. Mc-
Arthur thus arose to the same rank
in the regular army that he won in the
volunteer service during the war — and
promotion comes slow in the service
ir. time of peace. He fills the place
here made vacant by the transfer of
Col. M. .V. Sheridan to the depart
ment of Missouri, with headquarters
SPOKANE VS. SEATTLE.
Col. Hnnter Observes a Bloodless
Col. Edward Hunter is home from a
trip to Spokane Falls. Wash., where
he witnessed the famous "fruit fair," a
sort of harvest jubilee held there. In
speaking of his trip, he said:
"I could hardly realize when I was
in Spokane that it was a metropolitan
city of 40,000 inhabitants, when, only
twenty years ago, I remember it as a
little post ofr less than twenty-five
white people. I was a lieutenant in the
cavalry then, and stationed at Fort
Colville, near Spokane. The Indians
used to hold great pow-wows there,
and you would often see 2,000 of them;
now there isn't an Indian around.
"While I was in Spokane last week
a party of four prominent young men
of the place left for the Klondike, go
ing overland by a new route, for they
think it is an old Hudson Bay compa
ny trail. They go north to the termi
nus of the Spokane & Northern rail
way, and will then take horses and
start across a wilderness of 1,200 miles.
"You see, Spokane is jealous of the
prosperity Seattle is reaping by fitting
out Klondike parties, and, if a new
and practiceable overland route is
found, it will be a big thing for the
city. Everybody out there is talking
of the fabulously rich gold mines. A
big rush was preparing for the Koote
nai country last spring, but, when
word came of the big strikes near
Dawson, everybody went to Alaska."

A pair of suspicious characters were
arrested by Officer Anderson, of the
Margaret street station, after a short
chase yesterday afternoon, and from
subsequent developments the authori
ties are of the belief that two danger
ous men have been jailed. The prison
ers gave the names of Henry Wilson
and George Wilson, though of no re
lation, and the latter admitting that he
had given an assumed name. When
searched at the station both men car
ried loaded revolvers, while each was
provided with a pass key, and George
Wilson had a half-burned candle in
his pocket. One of the revolvers was
a forty-four caliber "Bull Dog" pat
tern, and the other a thirty-eight cali
ber modern weapon. The man giving
the name of George Wilson is thirty
seven years of age and claims to live
in Pittsburg, Pa,, but Lieut. Pendy
readily recognized the fellow as a con
vict released from Stillwater" last July.

after serving a five-year sentence for a
burglary in the southern part of the
state. His companion is a younger
man, about twenty-five years old, tall
and strongly built, with blue eyes and
auburn hair. He is unknown to the
local police and claims to hail from
Cincinnati, O. Both men tell conflict
ing stories about their acquaintance,

The prisoners were captured as the
result of rather peculiar circumstances.
About 11 o'clock in the morning three
men, two of whom answer the descrip
tion of the suspects, entered the shoe
store of Frank Esch, 707 East Third
street. The proprietor was in a rear
room, and after waiting a short time
without seeing him, the men left the
place. During the afternoon Officer
Anderson was told of the presence of
several suspicious characters In a
saloon on Third street, near Bates ave
nue, and when he started for the place,
the men now under arrest ran out of a
side door. The officer pursued them to
Bates avenue and Conroy street, where
they were captured and each found to
have on a pair of new shoes, afterward
identified by Mr. Esch as having been
stolen from his store.
Last evening Detective Doherty, of
the Milwaukee railroad service, looked
the prisoners over with a view to de
termining whether or not they were
men concerned in a robbery on his
road some time ago, but concluded they
were not the right parties. He recog
nized the elder man as an ex-convict,
however, and closely questioned both
prisoners regarding their whereabouts
three weeks ago, when the Northrn Pa
cific train was held up near Fargo.
Detective Doherty stated that there
was a possibility that the men might
have been concerned in this train rob
bery and that the matter would be
more fully investigated.
C. L. Gowdy, who was held up and
robbed near the Third street bridge
Saturday night, also visited the prison
ers, but could not identify them as his
BEAN WAS SCARED.
Sensation In the Court Clerk's OHlce
It was a little after 1 o'clock yes
terday afternoon when a tall swarthy
stranger walked into the office of the
clerk of the court. The clerk himself
was not there, but Capt. Bean had his
feet on one desk while Harry Sund
berg was gazing pensively out of a
window into the alley. The stranger
made himself right at home, walking
in to the vault after hanging up his
coat, looking interestedly around, and
then repairing to the back room to en
joy some post luncheon meditations he
had brought with him.
Bean looked quizzically at Sundberg,
who had been equally puzzled at the
antics of the unknown visitor.
"Know him?'\asked Bean finally.
"No," replied Sundberg. "Never saw
"Right at home, 'aint he?"
May be some new reporter. Fresh
guy, even for that."'
Bean intimated that Sundberg find
out who he was, so the First warder
finding an excuse for entering the back
room engaged the visitor in conversa
tion, while Bean listened outside the
"What can we do for you?" he ven
"Nothing, I guess," replied the other,
more or less absently.
"Waiting for some one?"
Sundberg looked at Bean. Then ad-
FOUR PER CENT DEBENTURE STOCK
GHiGftGO GMT Western Rfliumy Go
The four per cent Debenture Stock of the Chicago Great Western Railway
Company pays two per cent interest on its par value of $100 per share each
six months, making four per cent per annum.
It can now be bought at about seventy-four dollars per share, at which price
it pays five and one-third per cent interest per annum, and at eighty dollars
per share it would pay five per cent on the cost or investment.
The interest is paid to the registered owner by check sent to his address,
without expense to the owner, on the fifteenth day of January and the
fifteenth day of July in each year.
In two important particulars the Debenture Stock is better for small in
vestors than a bond, viz.:
Q) The certificates being registered, if they are lost or stolen, unlike bonds,
the stock remains the property of the registered owner, who would continue
to receive the interest. '
(9) The stock is issued in $100 shares, so a small Investor can purchase $100
or "any multiple of $100. while bonds are usually issued in denominations of
$1 000 each, so that no less than $1,000 and multiples of $1,000 can be purchased.
Under the Company's rules, the local registered owner of five or more
shares for six months prior thereto is entitled to free transportation to Chi
cago and return at the time of the annual meeting in the first half of Sep
tember in each year.
Thi° stock is recommended as a safe and profitable investment tor savings,
easily" and quickly convertible into money whenever desirable. It is listed on
the New York and London exchanges.
As it is impracticable for small investors to purchase in New l^ork or Lon
dcn to accommodate those who may desire to purchase from one to twenty
shares the following banks in St. Paul are prepared to sell such small lots,
to be paid for in full at the time of the purchase or at the option of the
purchaser to be paid in monthly installments, as follows:
Ten dollars p^r share to be paid at the time the purchase is made, ana
ten dollars per share on the twentieth day of each succeeding month.

Frantically gesticulating, Bean con«

turb the man further until he return

ed with Johnny Wagener to come and
take his crazy prisoner back to his own
apartments. The clerk had troubles
enough of his own, passing up natural
ization fees for the good of the party.
But the sheriff insisted that he had
all his crazy men properly marked
and catalogued, and each was in hla
proper place. Bean finally desisted,
and hastened back to see how Sund
berg was coming out. In the hall ha
met Ed Rogers, and explained the situ
ation to him, drawing a tearful picture
of w r hat might have happened to Sund
berg while he was gone.
Rogers looked in and pityingly sur
veyed his frightened subordinates.
"You chumps," he remarked. "Don't
you know Mike Fitzgerald. I saw him
get the shave and hair cut myself.

SUMMER SCHOOL. CONGRESS
Considering the Couraea <:f Study
for flic Fnture.
The advisory committee of the con
gress of summer school teachers, after
reviewing the answers to queries sent
out to county superintendents, has de
cided to recommend that the courses of
study in summer schools should be
flexibly graded by the county super
intendents or other authorities, on the
ground where the schools are to be
held. It was the unanimous opinion
that the grading should be done by
those thoroughly familiar with the
needs of each separate school.
On the question as to whether there
should be an organized effort to enable
students at the summer schools to ob
tain first grade certificates, it was de
cided that the students should be en
couraged in every way to prepare for
these certificates, but that in the sum
mer schools themselves, only the com
mon branches, those required in regu
lar school work, should be taught, in
struction in the higher branches being
left to the higher institutions of learn
