St. Paul society ladles, or a number
of them, are going to work in earnest
for the coming bench show. The mem
bers of the Humane society in their
endeavors to make a success of the
bench show have, as already told in
The Globe, called upon the ladles of
the organization and with ready sym
pathy these same women have re
sponded and begin their canvass of tha
city today. Women canvassers are not
a novelty. Every one is acquainted
with the woman book agent, the wom
an magazine canvasser and scores of
others who make their way into the
front hall on some pretext or other,
and will not go away, no matter what
one does until their little story is heard
or a .---ale made. But when the society
women come down town and visit per
sonally each prominent merchant in
the city, it is not a very usual sight,

drawing up and signing of the instru

seven years' war, and establish. d tha

in a most interesting fashion of many
of the events just preceding Feb. 10,

Mr. Stone went on through the Inci

A Meeting- In Brandl's Hall at Which
a Nnmbcr of Speeches Are Made
Fifth Ward Democratic Asso
ciation Elect- Officers Donn
hower, s. lnd:. hi, Klrkc, One Slate.
Preliminary steps were taken last
evening- by Eighth ward Democrats to
reorganize the Banner Democratic
club. Despite the inclement weather
over 100 persons attended the meeting
held in Brandl's hall and listened to
short speeches made by John L. Town
ley, J. C. Michaels, Thomas F. Mai -
tin. Matt Bantz and J. B. Covington.
Mr. Martin explained that there was
no slate prepared and no one had b.-en
selected for the officers of the club.
The committee, of which he was one,
had simply secured the hall and made
arrangements, and the members could
do the rest.
Michael Lux was chosen temporary
chairman and Joseph Macauley secre
tary. Mr. Lux said the club should
have a membership of SCO, and would
prove a factor in the spring campaign.
John L. Townley urged the Demo
crats of the Eighth ward to organize
and prepare for the campaign. Th.
only way to have good government,
which was badly needed in St. Paul
just now, was to have each voter take
an interest in public affairs. The city
as run now was in incompetent hands.
It had reached a stage. Mr. Town
ley said, where it was not safe for _.
crook to leave his satchel in the police
station. Two officers on the polio,
force, who had served ten years, were
ordered out from the central part of
the city by "Mayor" Griffin because
they knew too many crooks. Both of
the officers had been brought up be
fore Mayor Doran to be discharged,
but this the mayor refused to do, but
he did direct that they be given beats
In the Eighth ward on the suggestion
Even the Republicans were willing to
admit that the city government was
incompetent and all that was needed
for the Democrats to sweep the city
was to select the right ticket.
J. C. Michaels said after two years
of so-called reform the citizens "wer.
ready for a change. It was not sif-
to walk on the streets after nightfall
or leave one's house alone for fear of
burglars. A city government that did
not protect the life and property of
its citizens was a failure and it was
time for a change.
The police department had been de
moralized to make i.-.m for strikers
who had been promised jobs and in
experienced men seleefpd as officers
and subordinantes. The city was filed
with crooks of every description, who
as long as they worked in harmony
with those in control, were allowed to

fogging aldermen, Mr. Michaels said
Today a number of them were on a
junketing trip to the Pacific coast as
the guests of a corporation.
Matt Pantz urged organization and
work and every Democrat to vote for
the party ticket. The common council
had given away a million-dollar fran
chise, as Assemblyman Reardon had
said, for nothing. If the council had
any feeling for the laboring men it
would have made it possible for work
ingmen and women in the early morn
ing and after work hours In the even
ing to ride for a three-cent fare _

carry the day in May next.
J. B. Covington advised a precinct
organization, such as had been formed
in the Fourth ward, and predicted the
breaking of the Republican machine
three months from now.
Thomas F. Martin said good men on
the ticket and precinct organization
COLLEGE AND ITS NEEDS
CHIEF TOPIC OF DISCUSSION BY
THE SWEDISH LUTHERANS
Guntaviis Adolplms College nt St.
Peter Was the School Under Dis
cussion The School Has Been
Doing Good Work, According to
the Annual Report.
The annual session of the Minnesota
conference of the Swedish Lutheran
church was continued at the Gustavus
Adolphus church yesterday The day
was opened with religious exercises
after which followed the report of
President M. Wahlstrom, of the Gus
tavus Adolphus college, at St. Peter
The report showed that the present
was the thirty-fifth scholastic year of
the college, and that there had been
an attendance of 227 students, 153 males
and G8 females. The report showed
that the College Journal had been a
perfeot success, and had 2,000 sub
scribers and supported from its re
ceipts a foreign mission.
Rev. L. A. Johnson, of St Paul
chairman of the board of directors of
the college, presented a report showing
that the financial condition had not
improved during the past year. His re
port showed that the debt had in
creased during the past year. The debt
of the college in 1896 was $20,476 23
while it was in 1897 $23,188.23, an in
crease in the debt of $2,712 in one year
How to make good this deficit and
guard against its reoccurrence was
the financial point of Chairman John
son's report. Prof. A. C. Carlson and
Aug. Nelson, of Rock Island, received
the degree of Master of Arts, and
Prof. Hallstrom received the degree of
"Master of Accounts." The libraay of
the college had been removed to be.t r
quarters, which was a great improve
The report of the treasurer showed
that the total receipts for the past year
had been $15,875.48, including $6,434.19
for tuition in the academic and music
departments. The total disbursements
for the year were $13,755.47, part of
which was for teachers' salaries, $8,767
in the academic course, and $1,098.40 in
the music department. The commercial
department had proved a great suc
cess, its receipts being $230.07 over the
A general discussion of the financial
affairs of the St. Peter institution was
entered into by the session which oc
cupied all of the morning.
A telegram of congratulations was
sent to the New York conference now In
session at Manchester, N. H.
The opening part of the afternoon
session was a sermon delivered by Rev.
A. J. Ryden, of Buffalo, Minn. He
had for his subject "The Faith That
Stands to Remain in Christ and Be
Found in Him." The discourse was
listened to by a very large congrega
tion besiides the delegates.
The business session was then resum
ed. During the afternoon business
meeting matters pertaining to the
finances and condition of the St. Peter
college was continued. It was decided
during the aJTernoon session to allow
$6,000 from the treasury of the confer
ence and the free will offerings of all
thexcongregations of the conference to
be donated as an appropriation for the
coming year to the college at St. Peter.
A resolution was introduced by the
executive committee increasing the as
sessment for the St. Peter college to
20 cents, instead of 10, as at present
from every communicant of the
churches in the conference. This reso
lution created a heated and general
debate, which is not ended yet, as the
resolution will oome up again today.
Senator Peterson took a very active
part in the debate and advocated the
increase, and said the school was th.
most important mission in the confer
ence. The senator was opposed by Rev
G. Wahlund, of Spring Lake, who op
posed the increase and advocated in
stead a reduction in the force of teach-
in all the wards would mean that the
corrupt police administration now in
charge would soon be a thing of the
past in St. Paul.
The club will 'hold another meeting
next Thursday night, at which time
permanent officers will be chosen.
The Fifth Ward Democratic associa
tion held its annual meeting last night
at Lincoln hall. West Seventh and Wal
nut streets. Thi* being the meeting for
the election of , officers there was a
large attendance- and .a correspondingly
large number of names offered as can
didates, the balloting resulting as fol
President— J. h. Jansen.
Vice President— J. J. Kelly.
Secretary— R. w. Richardson.
Treasurer— John Safranek.
After electing! officers the members
engaged in an ;inforipal discussion of
the approaching city, election. The re
sult was a motion to.the effect that at
the association's ne_*_ meeting, to be
held two weeks hence, action would be
taken looking to ; the selection of candi
dates of their choice for the city offices
and alderman of the ward.
"Tho boom of Col. Kiefer for mayor

"You see Ed Rogers wants to go to

look very slim just now."
"I've got a combination that wi'l

said one of the ward politicians in the
court house corridor yesterday. "It's
Donahower for mayor, Lindahl for
treasurer, and Kirke for comptroller."
"You may be able to do business
with Donahower if you can strike
him," said a by-stander, "but the
other two are out of town for three
weeks and you'd better play those
you can reach for a while and keep
the sweeping combination in your

accomplished when the report showed
or.ly fifteen pupils to each teacher. In
reply to Rev. A. F. Tornell, of Anokt 1 .
who inquired if fewer teachers could
not do the work, President Wahlstrom
said that it would reduce the standard
of the college. During the debate tho
churches which failed lo pay up their
subscriptions were given due attention.
Chairman Johnson, of the board of
trustees, said the resolution for an In
crease had not come from them, but
was in fact opposed by the board.
The outcome of the question of in
crease was as above stated that $6,000
was appropriated from the treasury
and the free offering contributions of
the various churches of the conference.
The board of directors suggested thre-.
names for eaoh of the chairs to be filled
and one from each will be selected for
each chair, which will be the first work
of the conference after the opening of
today's session. The names selected by
the directors are as follows: For the
chair of English language, the names
i of A. C. Carlson, the present Incum
bent; Rev. J. A. Detzer, of St. Paul,
and Prof. Frank. Nelson, of Lynch

names of I. M. .Anderson, the present
occupant, and O. A. Anderson, now
an instructor at Yale college, and Rev.

This was the closing act of the af

During the morning session Prof. A.
Rempe was recommended for assistant
in the commercial department at a
salary of $700 per annum. Before ad

their cause. At the evening meeting,
which was devoted to the reading of
papers and general discussion, Rev. L.
B. Bergstrom read a paper on "How

of the congregation. The paper was
listened to with great interest.
Dr. P. J. Sword, of Omaha, president
of the Augustana synod, gave a talk
on Mormonism as it existed in Utah.
He has been doing missionary work ln
the Mormon state for several years.
After the close of his talk a general

Ths wheat of the last crop is not
grading as well as that of the previous
year. This has the effect, of course, of
absorbing a larger bulk of the grain
in order to secure a given amount of
flour; and though the quality of tho
flour itself is not approximately in

A gentleman connected with one of
the larger elevator systems and who,
from visiting the warehouses and
agents has an opportunity not only to
take observations of the country, but
to come into personal contact with
farmers, said that the high prices of
wheat stimulated incre.sed plowing
last fall, and owing to weather condi
tions the plowing was well done. It
is his judgment that farmers will, dvi-
Ing the coming season, sow more
wheat and less oats and barl?y. Whi!.*,
he said, he bad made no computations
with respect to tho ratio of increased
area, he believed that in Northwestern
Minnesota and North Dakota it would
be considerable, and that there would
probably also be a largely increased
acreage of flax.
Taken altogether, the view of grain
as well as milling men in Minneapolis

prices for wheat are destined to pre

"The export demand may tempor

shipments to Europe from Argentina:
but here at home when traders go inio
the market and want cash wheat, they
want rash wheat and not something
to lie delivered months to come. It i.
this condition of things that makes
wheat so high. It does not make any
difference to these men how murh snow
there Is on the ground or how com

do they care what the area sown to
wheat next spring is to be. They want
something to eat now, and it looks to
me at the present time as if there
