The- board of park commissioners
held a three-hour session last evening
and went ud and down the line with
Vice President Goodrich, of the street
railway company. Resolutions were
passed authorizing the company to
construct and operate a double track
ele-ctrlc line through the park.
This authority, however, is contin
gent on the company securing the
right from the common council to make
the line through tiie park a part of an
interurban linp to Minneapolis, and
unless this line is constructed and op
erated on or before Jan. 1, 1899, the
resolutions are to have no effect.

The resolutions provide that the com
pany shall construct a bridge over
Woodbine avenue according to plans
approved by the park superintendent.
That, after five years, the company
shall buikl two bridges, either over or
under roadways in the park, so as to
avoid crossings. The company is to
furnish and maintain the eighty-seven
arc lights now in the park, and after
June 1, 1899. fifty additional lights, and
within the next three years another
fifty, making a total of 187 lights.
These lights are to be maintained
between May 1 and Oct. 1 of each year
from sunset to midnight.
The company during 1899 is also to
pay $2,500 toward the expenses of
grading Midway parkway as soon as
the park board has acquired the land
for the same. The sum of $200 is a'so
to be expended by the company toward
the grading and widening of Autumn
avenue through the park.
The loop now operated at the en
trance to the park on Lexington and
Churcthill avenues Is to be maintained,
and all oars on the proposed interurban
line are to be operated around the
loop.
As soon as authorized by the coun
cil, the company is to vacate and take
up its tracks on Lexington avenue, in
order that this thoroughfare may be
made a parkway to Como.
The right to operate the line through
the park is to terminate July 1, 191...
The company ls to accept the condi
tions and file an acceptance within
twenty days after the council shall
give it the right to construct an inter
urban line on I_angford avenue from
the west limits of the park to the west
ern limits of the city.
There was considerable discussion
over the term of years for which the
company should have the right to op
erate the line through the park. The
beard favored the time being limited to
ten years. Vice President Goodrich
wantetl the time fixed at twenty years,
and argued that if in five years the
company had to build two bridges,

pointed to the position made vacant by
the promotion of Bronson.
A. W. Mortenson. formerly a clerk
in the board under Commissioner Cope

MIST GIVE MORE DETAIL.
Assembly Committee Wants a More
Definite "Hello" Ordinance.
The question of a franchise asked for by
the Minnesota Central Telephone company
for a long distance telephone came up be
fore the committee on streets of the as
sembly yesterday afternoon.
Charles S. Cairns, counsel for the com
pany, made a talk similar to the one deliv
ered before the aldermanic committee last
week. The question of the time for which
the franchise should be granted was brought
up by Assemblyman Thompson, who stated
that the people were favoring limited fran
chises. Mr. Cairns thought twenty-five
years would be about the right length of
time, although he said the ordinance passed
in Minneapolis did not limit the time. The
ordinance in Minneapolis gave the city 5
per cent of the gross earnings, and this, Mr.
Cairns said, was a very fair proposition.
The question was raised as to whether the
company would co-operate with any new
company which might come into the city
and operate a local exchange.
To this Mr. Cairns said the company
would object to dividing any of its tolls for
the long distance telephone with the local
company, but would be willing to co-operate
with such company, and make connections.
As to the rates between St. Paul and Min
neapolis, Mr. Cairns was not able to say.
He h_xd talked informally with Vice Presi
dent Webster and the intimation had been
that 10 cents would be a fair rate between
the two cities.
At the suggestion of Assemblyman Al-
THE ST. PAUL, trlvUBE TUESDAY FEBRUARY 15, 1898.
which would cost J5.0.0 each, it would
be a hardship to order the company to
vacate. It would cost, he said, $80,000
to build and equip the Interurban line
as proposed, and if. after this had been
done, the park board should have the
right to suspend travel on the line
through the park, it would be a hard
ship.
By unanimous vote the board placed
the termination of the right of way to
operate the line at fifteen years.
The question of privileges was then
taken up, and, after a lengthy discus
sion, the president of the I>oard was
authorized to enter into a contract with
the company for three years. The
terms as agreed upon were:
That the company pay $1,600 for an
addition to the pavilion, to be con
structed by the superintendent of the
board, and an additional $200 for a
music float. That not less than $5,500
be expended by the company for music
and entertainment at the park, the
programme of the entertainments to be
approved by the supTinterdent. That

through.
The boating privileges will be in tho
hands of the board, and if any addi
tional boats are needed outside of the
sixty-six now owned by it, they shall
be purchased from the railway com
pany at $15 each.
The plan for the line through the
park provides for a strip twenty-two
feet wide, the> space between the tracks
and on the sides to be sodded. After
leaving Hamline avenue on Langford
avenue, whiedi is 100 feet wide, the city
railway company will occupy the twen

ica for Hie] American Business
Blan and tht General Reader.
Within the next few weeks The
Globe will begin the publication of
the most remarkable series of letters
ever published in a., newspaper. This
series will describe^the South Ameri
can continent as it "is in 1898. It will
be the result of a tour which will cost
thousands of dollars and which will in
clude travels o«more than 25,000 miles
for up-to-date information.
The tour wasfcegun by Mr. Frank G.
Carpenter, whel he sailed from New
York the other day for the Isthmus of
Panama. He has already landed at
Colon and is now investigating the
condition of the Panama canal, upon
which something like 2.000 men are
now working. Crossing the isthmus.
Mr, Carpenter will travel down a'ong
the Pacific coast of South America to
the bottom of our hemisphere to lhe
Strait of Magellan, stepping at the
various ports and making extensive
expeditions into the interior.
He will stop for a while in Ecuador,
will travel extensively on the plateau
of Bolivia and will make his way by
mule and _ tage through some of the
wildest paits of the Andes. He will
visit Lake Titicaca, the highest lake of
the world which is navigated by steam,
and will report on the business condi
tions of Peru and Bolivia and th.
chances for American investments
there. .
An interesting part of his tour will
be a journey from the tops of the An
des through the wi'.ds of Bolivia down
FRAXK. (.. CARPENTER.
into Chili, crossing" trie great rainless
zone and spending some time in th?
nitrate fields which have made so
many men rich.
He will visit the gold regions of Bo
llv.a. Chili and Peru, which are said
to far surpass the Klondike in rich
ness, and from the southern part of
Chili will make his way on down to
the bottom of the continent, where
there are other wonderful gold fields.
After exten. ive- travels in Chili and
Patagonia, including a journey Into
the Andes mountains to describe the
work row being done on the Trans-
Ar.dran road, Mr. Carpenter will sail
for Tierra del Fuega, and wi'l there
visit a country inhabited by savages,
seme of whom live- in holes in the
ground, and wil! then mak. his way
up the Atlantic coast to Patagonia and
on into that wonderful country the
Argentine Republic.
In the Argentine jhe will visit the
wheat fields which compete so greatly
with our farmers, will investigate the
cotton industry,: which is rapidly grow
ing, and will travel for thousands of
miles over this'land. which Is as large
as all the United Sates east of the
Mississippi river.
After describing the capital of Bue
nos Ayres. whjfch Is almost as large as
Philadelphia, Mr. Carpenter will make
an expedition .of something like 2,000
miles on the Rio deli la Plata and Pa
rana rivers, riding 'far up into Para
guay and visiting its capital. He will
also travel extensively in Uruguay
ard Southern Brazil.
In Brazil hei will visit the greatest
coffee region of the world, will make
a trip to the diamond mines, spend
some time at Rio Janeiro, and. among
other expeditions, will travel more
than 2,000 miles on the Amazon river,
exploring some of the wildest and least
known parts of our hemisphere.

DAM PLANS APPROVED
.
MEEKER ISLAM) SPECIFICATIONS
APPROVED AT WASHINGTON
Plans Were Received Yesterday at
tbe Office of Engineer Abbott
Bearing; the O. K. of lite Higher
Federal Official* A Third Dam
May Be Necessary.

The preliminary plans for the Meek
er island dam and Lock No. 2, which
were sent to Washington a fortnight
ago for approval, were received yester
day by United States Engineer Abbott,
approved by the proper officials.
The plans were 7/ielayed for some
time in Washington, as It was neces
sary to secure the approval of several
heads of departments, aside from the
sanction of tire war- department. The
authority to go ahead with the minor
construction of the dam and lock
which came along with the approval
of the plans submitted by Capt. Ab
bott, virtually means that the red
tape which has delayed the work for
several months is at an end, and con
struction will "begin at once. T2_e sec
retary of war has p-pproved the gen
eral outline of the plans.
Preparatory work, such as grading a
road down the slopfj and also the con
struction of a road along the top of
the bluff, about a quarter of a mile
south of the Shorf Line bridge, will
begin in a few weelcs.
Capt. AbbotJ will/ as soon as prac
ticable, appoint an advisory board of
engineers, who will enlarge upon the
outline approved by the war depart
ment. The appointment of the board
will be made from the corps under
Capt. Abbott. After this ls done the
construction will be pushed with as
much dispatch as possible.
The board will, after the idea of the
dam is put on blue print, submit it
to Capt. Abbott, who will send it im
mediately to Washington, where the
give their readers a plain, practical,
common-sense description of what is
going on in South America. He has
Instructions to investigate the resources
of the various countries, to describe in
detail what Americans are doing there
and to look up the possibilities in the
different countries for American trade
and American manufactures. He is in
fact a commissioner for the American
people to describe for them just the
things they want to know about this
comparatively unknown continent. He
will also describe how the people of the
various countries act and live, how
cur sister republics manage their busi
ness and the other curious features of
life above and below the equator.
There are few travelers who start
out on such an expedition so well
equipped for good work as does Mr.
Carpenter. He will have with him
during the most of his journeys excel
lent photographs, and his letters will
be accompanied by illustrations and
photographs made upon the ground.
His extensive travels, covering nearly
every part of the world, and his long
residence at Washington have given
him a wide acquaintance, and he will
also have the assistance of our diplo
mats and consuls in carrying out his
plans. He is well equipped with letters
from the state department at Wash
ington, with introductions from the
chief of the bureau of the American
republic, and in connection with farm
ing matters he goes by the appointment
of Secretary Wilson as an honorary
(omm'f.iorer of the department of egri
culture.
This expedition cannot but be of en.r
mcus value to our readers. It will
bring forth information that cann.it
lx found in the libraries, which will be
full of suggestions and information for
the business men and at the same time
be interesting to all. It is, in fact, the
exploration of a comparatively un
known land by a trained observer and
a well equipped newspaper man.
Speaking of our business interests
abroad, the tour was planned because
it is believed that South America is
destined to be one of the chief news
centers for the people of the United
fa.at.-F. The day is past when America
can rely upon her home tr-ade to feed
her factories. From now on our busi
ness is to cover the world. We are
already reaching out towards Europe
England trembles when she views the
increase of American products into he.
home markets. Our machinery is now
being introduced into most every city
of Europe and we are making heavy
. hiprr.erts to Asia.
South America naturally belongs to
us. and our trade there is steadily in
creasing. It is nothing to what it will
be. and Mr. Carpenter believes that ti
ls in the advance guard of a movement
which will result in epening the great
est field for commerce and money
niaklns. that the United States has yet
had. He says that we are Just on the
edge of another era in our national life
the commercial era. and that we are tei
look not at home, but to the world for
our trade. There are today score's of
our people who are scattered over
South America. Some have concessions
for gold and silver mines. Others are
making fortunes by raising coffee and
others have vast rubber interests on
the Amazon. There are a half-dozen
different concessions which have b-en
recently granted to America to build
railroads on the Pacific coast of South
America, and it is an American who
Is building the gap which remains In
the great railroad across the continent
frcm the Pacific in Chill to the At
lantic at Buenos Ayres. There
are American colonies in South Ameri
ca engaged in agriculture and stock
raislng, and there are American trad
ers on the upper Amazon whose busi
ness is with the wild Indians of those
regions. Mr. Carpenter will tell just
our people are doing in these dif
ferent countries and will show what
chances there are in the different coun
tries for American muscle, brains and
capital.
final approval will be given and work
commenced at once.
The dam, according to the estimates,
will entail an expenditure of $600,000[
part of which has been provided for
by congress, and the rest is in sight
The large outlay of money, which wili
be strung over a period of nearly a
year, will, a large proportion of it be
spent for labor. It will give employ
ment to a large force of men all the
time.
As soon as the entire amount for tha
construction has been appropriated"
efforts will be made to secure an ad
ditional appropriation to make possi
ble the construction of Dam No. 1 «o
called, which will be situated a little
above the mouth of Minnehaha creek
It is claimed that with these two
locks and dams navigation up the river
as far as the old steamboat landing
in Minneapolis will be possible. It has
been said, however, by prominent
steamboat men, that great difficulty
will be experienced just below the
mouth of the Minnesota river, where
the water flows very rapidly. In or
der to make the other twin the head
of navigation, it will be necessary, ac
cording to the statement of a river
captain, to build another dam just be
low the mouth of the Minnesota river.
There is quite a fall from Minnehaha
creek as far as the lower end of Pike
island, where the greatest difficulty
would be experienced.
The two upper locks will cover what
Is considered the worst part of the
river, but the government will still
have the channel in the vicinity of
Pike island to contend with.
Capt. Abbott is expected back from
St. Louis next week, when the plans
and specifications will receive immedi
ate consideration.

earnest and full of sincerity. Miss
Olafla Johannsdottir spoke yesterday
afternoon l>efore a large gathering of
temperance peop?e, men and women,
Protestant and Catholic, in tbe rooms
of the St. Paul Commons.
Miss Johannsdottir comes from Ice
land, where she has been interested in
the cause of temperance for- thr- last
twelve years, though during that time
she has not always been an active
In appearance there is nothing re
markable about the lady. She is a pur.,
bbnde, a type common among the
Swedish people, with rather full, clear
eves, a firm mouth and chin, and a
broad intellectual ferehead. Her figure
is short and sturdy and her hands,
while not large, are those of a worker.
Intellectually Miss Johannsdottir is
cue of the ablest women who have ever
visited St. Paul in a public way, find
her personality is strong. Firmness
and sincerity are expressed in her face
and eyes, as well as through her voice.
Her remarks yesterday had to do
with the origin of temperance work in
her country and her own interest in
tho same. She said that from a child
_he had always been interested in tem
perance, from seeing the effect of
strong drink on the men and women
around h?r. Twelve years ago the Clood
Templars sent a group of workers to
Iceland, and the people felt that only
"old women" (meaning ln.th men and
women) could take an Interest in such
a cause. However, she attended one of
the meetings and joined the society.
Her friends thought her very odd and
queer, but she thought the work a good
one ;vnd thought that the way to show
her sympathy for it was to join those
interested. She was the first girl in
Iceland to associate herself with the
work. For four years she took no
part in the meetings beyond attending
regularly and seeing to the entertain
ment or refreshments. At last when
she did make her first address she ran
away at the close of it. ln Norway
she became interested in the White
Ribbon work and joined the Norwegian
Women's Temperance union, and when
she returned to Iceland organized a
White Ribbon society with fifty mem
bers. She advised the women to join
with the world's association and in
