Story About the Placing of In

Some of the members of the normal
school board itself, since The Globe
has called attention to certain things
In connection with the Winona insti
tution, are willing to admit that the
affairs of the Winona normal school
are in a very peculiar condition. Prof.
W. F. Phelps, of this city, a member
of the board, whose term expires with
the current year, confirms the report
that the affairs of the school are in a
condition different from what some
members of the board would like to
Mr. Phelps was seen at his home on
Summit avenue last evening, but was
quite reticent when asked for a state
ment of the condition existing at the
"I am frank to admit," he said, "that
I am not pleased with the present state
of affairs at Winona, which are cer
tainly very unusual. The board will
meet next week and I hope at that
time matters will be straightened out.
A man who ls president of an insti
tution of this kind must be president
ln fact, and exercise authority as such,
in short, he must have plenty of bade
bone. That is the kind of a man we
want to fill Mr. Shepard's place."
"Would you say, professor?" asked
The Globe reporter, "whether Mr.
Shepard was forced to resign as presi

that he had to withdraw?"
"Well, as a member of the board I
am placed in a rather delicate posi

to adjust things at Winona, and I pre
fer not to say anything that would an
tagonize the legislature against any of
these schools. I will say, however, that
the conditions were such that Mr.
"Was the board advised as to the
condition of affairs at Winona?" Di
rector Phelps was further asked.
"No, I think that several of the
board were ignorant of the manage
ment of the Winona school, but there
were some members of the board who
were not. The trouble with the board,"
continued Mr. Phelps, "is that it is
composed of gentlemen who live in dis
tant parts of the state, and who come
to St. Paul hurriedly and transact
their business and return to thelt
homes. There is Mr. Grindeland, who
lives way up in the Northern part of
the state; Mr. Clark, who lives at Man
kato; Col. Ward, who lives at Alex
andria; Mr. Morey at Winona and
Mr. Comstock at Moorhead."
"Does the board act on matters per
taining to the several schools upon the
recommendation of the resident direc
tor and president?"
"Yes; of necessity a great deal of
the business is done that way."
Mr. Phelps said he had every confi
dence that the board would be able to
secure a man who would be able to
take immediate charge of the Winona
school and run it without any further
It has been known among prominent
educators for some time past that the
National Educational association was
fast becoming a kind of syndicate for
the protection of the interests,of teach
ers, which was far from the primary
objects of the association. The asso
ciation started an endowment fund
twenty-five years ago, which now
amounts to $70,000, and of which Mr.
Shepard will receive $5,000 per year.
At present there is talk among cer
tain members of the association to
make an effort next year to change
the course which matters have been
Another matter came to light yes
terday about an insurance controversy
in connection with the Winona school.
About a year ago the Insurance on the
Winona school was placed at Winona
at from $1.75 to $2.25 per $100, or at a
rate which the board, after an inves
tigation of the matter, found exhorbl
tantly high. After some negotiating,
insurance on the other three normal
schools, as well as the Winona institu
tion, was placed in Minneapolis at 90
cents a hundred. The matter caused
a good deal of quiet talk, but, like ev
erything else in connection with the
normal board, seems to have been
hushed up or kept secret.

Mr. Morey and I may honestly differ ln our
views, but between ua there has been no

I ask for is Justice and the best that can

SCOTCH IN EVERY PART.
Programme Ht the Park Congregn.
tional Church Last Mglit,
The skirl of the bagpipes, Scottish
melody and Scottish lore made a very
enjoyable entertainment last evening
at the Park Congregational church.
It was "A Scotch Evening," in every
sense, and the people who enjoy the
memories and traditions of the land
of Burns and Wallace and Scott filled
the auditorium and evidenced their
appreciation by encoring every num
ber on the programme.
George Sinclair, in his piper's kilt
and costume, opened the programme
with "The Campbells Are Coming." In
response to an encore, the piper played
"The Cock o' the North," and the au
dience broke Into a storm of applause
at the familiar melody that Piper Fin
la yson made famous.
Then Rev. Alexander MacGregor
read "A Doctor of the Old School,"
lan Maclaren's pathetio little story.
Dr. MacGregor is gifted with a mar
velous dialect and his rendition was
W. F. Myron and J. C. Myron san*
the "A B C" duet and gave "When Ye
Gang Awa' Jamie," in response to an
encore. While the applause was still
echoing, Dr. MacGregor made his ap
pearance again, thra time in kilts, and
recited Burns' "Scots W*ha' Hae" and
"My Mary ln Heaven."
It was announced that Mr. James
Singer, who was on the programme
for a vocal selection, would be unable
to appear, and his place was very ac
ceptably filled by Peter Cochrane, of
Minneapolis, who sang "False Mag
gie Gardin" and a number of familiar
Then there was a reading, "For Con
science Sake," from lan Maclaren, and
Burns' "Address to a Mouse," by Dr
MacGregor; Piper Sinclair played
"Robin Gray" and Mr. Cochrane sang
two more selection.
The programme closed with the sing
ing of "Auld Lang Syne" by the au
dience, and the familiar old parting
song waa aung with that fervor and
effect that can oniy be reached by a

Republican Politicians Say the Flre
< ommlsMloltcr Will Be Removed.
The effort made by the politicians to
influence Mayor Kiefer to name a new
man to succeed Reuben Warner on the
fire board is said to have proven ef
fectual and Jan. 1 the mayor will name
the fortunate individual.
Mr. Warner is well known In busi
ness circles and for years has served
the city as a member of the board of
fire commissioners. So well has he
served the Interests of the city in this
capacity that it was understood that
he would be offered a reappointment
at the expiration of his term.
The politicians who are back of the
administration, however, care little for
the efficiency or ability of the men who
are to be appointed to the fire or any
other board. What they insist on is
that the hustlers in the party shall
have recognition and pap from the
city, and it is to satisfy these states
men that men like Mr. Warner are to
be turned down.

Weaver testified to having been as

that he called to collect $1 which was
owing for the rent of a machine.
Half a dozen witnesses beside the de
fendants told a very different story
about the affair. Mrs. White admitted
that she had struck at Weaver with
an umbrella, but did not know whether
she hit him or not. At the time she

John Gallagher walked Into the cen
tral police station last evening and re
quested the sergeant in charge to
charge him with something so he could
be sent to the workhouse.
"I'm eighty-one years old, broke,
starving, cold and weary, and I've
been trying to get chores to do to keep
me going, but it's no use," said Galla
gher, "and I guess the workhouse is
the best place for me."

Chle-f Schweitzer Think*, llohsing I*
Joseph Hobsing, charged with robbing Vic
tor Schmidt of $05 at the city hotel Saturday
night last, was arraigned in the police court
yesterday. Hobsing, after his arrest Friday
night, commenced to act strangely and gave
indications that he was insane.
So violent did he become that he was taken
to the county jail for restraint. In the police
court yesterday he exhibited no signs of In
sanity, and his examination was postponed
until De.-. 7 and his bail fixed at $1,000.
riiief of Detectives Schweitzer contends that
Hobsing is shamming, and says the insanity
dodge is being worked to death By thieves
arrested for crimes. The official says he
does net propose to allow Hobsing to escape
on any such plea.
Hobsing made friends with Schmidt, ac
companied him to the hotel, but got up first
in the morning and walked away with the
$65 belonging to Schmidt.

DR. EGBERT GOES OUT
PASTOR OF THE HOUSE OP HOPE
"RELEASED FROM HIS
PRESBYTERY TAKES ACTION
HI Health Compels Hit* Retirement
From tbe Charge He Haa De
voted the Last Flre Years To—
Will Devote the Winter to Abso
lute Rest—.Some Other Pulpit
pcsa n-pes Were Acted Upon.
The Rev. Dr. John Paul Egbert waa
released yesterday from the pastorate
of the House of Hope church by the
presbytery, which held a special ses
sion to consider his resignation. The
session was held in the church and
was attended by only ten members.
Dr. Egbert's resignation, which was
offered on account of his ill health, was
acted upon with many expressions of
regret that his pastoral relations were
to terminate under such circumstances.
He had been pastor of the church over
five years and his health gave way un
der the st aln of his pastoral and
literary work. Efforts to restore it by
rest and recreation had failed and
there remained nothing for him to do
but retire from all labor for an in
Dr. Egbert is now In Ashevllle, N.
C, where he hopes to recuperate this
winter. He is about fifty years of age
and has been active in literary work.
He is a graduate of Princeton college
and theological seminary, and he be
gan his ministerial career as a mis
sionary among Western mining camps.
His first charge was in San Jose, Cal.
He afterwards went to New York state,
and a few years ago became pastor of
a church In Buffalo. There he re
mained until called to the House of
I Hope church five years ago.
During his pastorate In St. Paul Dr.
Egbert made many friends and drew
a great many persons to his congre
gation. He was considered one of the
most intellectual men in the Northwest.
As a financier he stood high and no
plan he proposed for benefiting the
church was ever opposed by the
trustees, who had the utmost confi
dence in his judgment.
Dr. Egbert was an indefatigable
worker and last spring his health
showed signs of breaking and his con
gregation granted him a vacation of
three months. But he did not Improve
as he expected, and he was finally
obliged to relinquish all cares and ask
the congregation to release him from
further responsibility, and this they
have reluctantly done.
The presbytery also dissolved the
agreement between the Rev. D. P.
Grosscup. of Rush Cityj and the con
gregations of the two churches there,
of which he was pastor. Mr. Grosscup
also has lost his health. He was in
stalled in Rush City only three month**
ago, but he discovered that the care
of two churches was too much for him.
The Rev. M. R. Paradi, of Hastings,
was moderator of the meeting yester
day. Other clergymen present were:
Messrs. Robinson, of White Bear;
Elmer, of Hamline; Laube, of Bethle
hem church, this city; Driscoll, of Arl

Copeland, of East; Meldrum. of Cen

presbytery will be held about Jan. 13.

TEENTH IS FARING WEI.U

and Promise Well A Pen Plc
turc of AK'uinnlilo.
Gov. Clough, yesterday, received the
following letter from Col. F. W. Ames,
of the Thirteenth regiment, under data
of Oct. 14. The letter is as follows:
"Your letter to Gon. Reeve, which con
veyed words of praise to the Thirteenth regi
ment. 1 have had read to each company at
their quarters and I assure you they received
it with enthusiasm. We have all tried to
do our duty, and any words of praise from
our friends at home, especially frcm the
chief executive cf our state, makes all ot
us forget the hours and days of inconven
ience and privations incident to war. I think
we may be pardoned if, now that peace is
likely to follow this short but decisive con
flict, we look with longing eyes and yearn
ing hearts to a meeting v.lth all our friends
and those we love in the dear state we all
love so well in the near future. I know
I but voice the sentiments of not only the
enlisted men, but the officers of the regi
ment, when I say that when we receive or
ders to board the ship for home every man
will be thankful.
"Gen. and Mrs. Reeve and myself and sev
eral officers of the regiment visited the town
of Malolas, about forty miles from here,
and called on Gen. Aguinaldo, the insurgent
chief, at his headquarters. The trip was
made on the railroad, which runs along the
coast for 100 miles, and It was the first timt>

Reeve and myself riding in Aguinaldo's car.
riage. When we arrived at the palace we
found the insurgent guard turned out with
great pomp to do us honor, and we were
ushered into the parlors and engaged in con
versation by the officers until Aguinaldo mads
his appearance, and he seemed very pleased
to meet us. Although he himsolf speaks no
English, we had quite an extended conversa
tion with him through the interpreter. He
se?med quite anxious to know what news
had been received from the peace commis
sion, but we could give him no satisfaction
on that subject. He seems very friendly with
tfle Americans, but he and his people are
bitterly opposed to the Spaniards ever re
suming control of the islands. He is a sniaii
man and looks very much like a Japanese,
and weighs every word he s-ays, and seems
to think deeply. He is a remarkable man
when you take into consideration the feet
that at the age of 35 he has beaten trained
Spanish soldiers at every point in this island,
and had them practically Imprisoned within
the limits of Manila when we arrived her?.
It would have taken many months for him
to have conqu«ed the city of Manila, but
he eventually would have done so, with Ad
miral Dewey's fleet blockading tlie harbor,
had wo not befn ordered here. I don't think,
however, that the Filipinos are at present
capable of governing themselves, but they
can be made so in time, much easier than
the Cubans, for they are a more peaceable,
quiet and industrious people than the Cubans!

A SPECIALIST'S OPINION.
A great spoclalLst says that every caee of
Dyspepsia is either the result of Constipa
tion or Is aggravated by It. Beecham's Pllla
are a specific for constipation or bowel ob
struction. Therefore, Beecham's Pills either
cure Dyspepsia, or else relieve it so thorough
ly that the pain and discomfort vanish. And
this ls a very conservative statement. As
a matter of fact, Beecham's Pills have abso
lutely cured hundreds of thousands of caeca
Try Beecham's Pills, tiny, tasteless and
easily dissolved. Take one every morning in
a glass of h>t water, and you will scon feel
the blood coursing through your veins with
all its old-time energy. Beecham's Pills am
