The house In committee of the
whole. Mr. Laybourn (Rep.), of St.
Louis, In tho chair, spent nearly two
hours yesterday discussing the bill ap
propriatlng $24,500 to reimburse the
persons who put up that amount for
the Minnesota exhibit at the Omaha ex
position last year. After amendment,
motions and substitutes galore had
been made and voted down, the com
mittee recommended the bill to pass.
The bill, as introduced by Mr. Staples
(Rep.), of Dakota, had been recom
mended to pass by the committee on
appropriations and an effort was made
Thursday to suspend the rules and put
the bill on its passage. This was op
posed and the bill took its regular
After it had been read Mr. Staples
moved that it be recommended to pass.
Mr. Lampe (Tnion). of Hennepin, mov
ed for ind; finite postponement on the
ground that the legislature two years
;i^<> had refused to make the appro
priation and the passage of the meas
ure would establish a precedent which
would give rise to mucn trouble In the
Mr. Staples' said the business men of
the state had banded together and
raised the money for an exhibit which
had been >>f great Interest, and of bene
fit to the state, arvd this in the face of
the fact that he legislature had denied
the appropriation. He had voted
against the appropriation two years
ago, but he was glad to say that he
had broadened out h little since then
and the state had made a record at
the Omaha exposition. The question
was whether the parties w 7 ho had sign
ed notes and made the exhibit a suc
cess were to be held personally re
sponsible for the expenditure. He read
a report of the prizes awarded to Min
nesota at the exposition and stated
that the dairy exhibit alone benefited J
the state more than the amount of the
appropriation asked for. lie knew of
his own knowledge of persons who, by
reasnn of the exhibit at Omaha, had
been interested in the state, and two
colontes would be located here from
Nebraska. In view of the splendid
work and benefits derived from the ex
hibit he favored the appropriation.
Mr. Abbott (Rep.), of Faribau'-t. in
quired how many notes had been given
and what counties had contributed.
Mr. Staples read a long list of the
counties and the amounts raised by
each and contended that this showed
that all parts of the state took an In
terest in and took part in the exhibit.
Mr. Plowman (Pop.), of Otter Tail,
questioned if the appropriation was
not voted down in the house at the last
session on the ground that the state
could not afford the expense. This, Mr.
Staples said, was not correct.
Mr. Gutterson (Rep.), of Blue Earth,
offered an amendment to cut the appro
priation in two and give $12,250. He
was opposed to pledging the credit of
the state in this way. The exhibit at
Om«ha had been a benefit to the state,
but he favored a chance to teach the j
parties who pledged the .credit of the j
state in this way a lesson. If the leg- j
islature should be asked this year to I
make an appropriation and it should J
be voted down it would make no dlf- |
ference and parties would do the same
thing as they had in the Omaha ex
position matter. He had been approach
ed during the campaign and requested
by parties who signed the notes In his
district and asked not to oppose the
appropriation. He had stated that he
would not make any promises. The
lesson, he thought, would be sufficient
if the state paid half the amount and
allowed the signers of the notes to pay
the other half.
Mr. Staples favored the state paying
all or nothing. The plan suggested by
Mr. Gutten-un was a milk and water
stand. Either vote the bill up or down.
Mr. Umland (Dem.V of Ramsey,
thought the amounts raised were pret
ty well divided among the counties. His
idea was that the greater numbor of
those who signed the not'^s did not ex
pect to be reimbursed, but simply did
BO for the benefit of the state. If they
did not do It with this Idea then it was
a mercenary one and they should not
be paid.
Mr. Marin (Pop.), of Pope, said all
the men who signed the notes were
fully aware of the action of the legis
lature in denying the appropriation. He
noticed in the report of the gentlemen
who had charge of the exhibit that the
secretary had drawn $150 per month
and an additional $1,688 was given him.
Ho thought some one had had a snap.
The principle was all wrong and the
appropriation should b? turned down.
Mr. Roberts (Rep), of Hennepin, ,iald
the affair showed that all the intelli
gence of the state was not lodged in
the legislature. The result showed the
hindsight of the raembere of the legis
lature and the foresight of the busi
ness men who had taken charge of The
exhibit. The amount, asked for to re
imburse those who had made the ex
hibit a success was a mere bagatelle.
The legislature would be deluged with
bills asking for appropriations, asking
for things untried, while here was one
v.hich had proved a benefit to the state.
The business men had put up their
nu ney for the benefit of the state and
not for their own good, and it would
be penny wise and pound foolish not
to reimburse them.
Mr. .Tacobson (Rep.), of Lac gui Parle,
vas glad to see such a spirit of econo
my on the floor. There would be a
chance later In the session for the gen
tlemen to show the same spirit. The
question was should the state or 100 or
1,000 persons pay for the exhibit? The
state was not in honor bound to pay.

Persons suffering from atomach

If the same method had been used in
the Chicago deal, the appropriation
would not have received a vote of a
single member. A much better exhibit
had been made at Omaha for $25,000
than had been made at the world's fair
for $175,000, and more credit had been
reflected on the state. The Chicago
commissioners were appointed and the
money spent w r ith littte if any result.
In this case the result to the state was
four times better, as the exhibit had
been conducted on business principles.
Tlitr benefit to the farmers was great,
and, if. the exhibit had not been made
Minnesota would not be In front
as a butter making state. If he thought
the bill was not a good business pro
position he would not vote for it. The
whole state had been benefited and
should pay for it. Either pay the whole
amount or nothing.
Mr. West (Rep.), of Mower, explained
that one reason why the appropriation
did not pass two years ago was that
the members feared it would ba another
world's fair scheme. The Idea was that
if the appropriation was made the gov
ernor would appoint a commission and
the members would ko on a junket or
two, and that was all there would be
to it. As It was the business men had
token hold of the matter and it was a
success. He favored ths bill.
Mr. Plowman moved progress be re
ported on the bill.
Mr. Winston (Dem.), of Hennepin,
wanted the bill made a special order
for Thursday at 10:30.
Mr. Foss (Rep.), of Grant, offered as
a substitute for all previous motions
that the committee report progrsss and
place the bill on general orders.
Mr. Winston said it was a question
of principle and he would like to see a
full attendance of members when the
bill was acted upon.
The motions and amendments were
voted down in order and the bill rec
ommended to pass.
When the committee rose it reported
on the following bills:
H. F. 1 (Grass. Rep., of Murray) — To amend
section 5518 of the General Statutes of 1594
relating to actions in courts. To pass.
H. F. 14 (Dunn, Rep., of Ramsey)— To le
galize and validate deeds and other instru
ments executed without a seal, scroll or de
vice opposite the name of the grantor, and
the rocord thereof. To pass.
H. F. 22 (Ferris, Rep., of Crow Wing)—
To enable and authorize cities .having a
population of 10,000 or less to issue certifi
cates of indebtedness In certain cases. To
H. F. 35 (Dunn, Rep., of Ramsey)— To
legalize the execution and record of certain
Instruments authorizing attorneys to fore
close mortgages by advertisement. To pass.
H. F. 72 (Staples, Rep., of Dakota)— To ap
propriate money to defray the expenses of
the Minnesota exhibit at the exposition held
at Omaha, Neb., in 1898, etc. To pass.
When the calendar was reached there
was_a long discussion on H. F. 52, by
Mr. "Peterson (Rep.), of Renville. The
measure reduces the rate of interest on
certificates of state lands from 5 to 4
per cent and extends the time for pay
ment from thirty to fifty years.
Mr. Bush (Rep.), of Olmsted, said af
ter investigation he had found that the
bill would, while it benefited many,
cripple the permanent school fund to
the extent of $50,000, and for this rea
son he did not think !t should pass.
Mr. Dwinnell (Re.p.), of Hennepin,
made a long speech opposing the pas
sage of the measure. It was one of the
most important matters coming before
i the house at the session and involved
about $1,000,000 to the school fund of
the state and the members should take
care not to make a break in the school
funds. The law of- 1866 provided that
the principal derived from the sale of
lands should never be used by the state,
but only for the school districts. The
investment board had at first been only
allowed to invest in United States
bonds and state bonds. In 1896 the law
had been changed so as to allow loans
from the fund to be made on county,
school, municipal and town bonds.
Since that time the Investment board
had placed $1,250,000 in that character
lof investments. There was now about
$6,200,000 in outstanding contracts and
the reduction of the rate of interest
from 5 to 4 per cent would mean a loss
of $62,000 to the school fund. If the
proposition was a arood thing why did
not the railroad cor»->anies reduce the
rate on the came principle as advanced
by those favoring the bill.
Mr. Lynds (Rep.), of Carlton, stated
that the result of his investigations
had been that there was now out
standing land contracts amounting to
$6,280,000 in round figures. In the last
six years the payments had been as fol
lows: 1893, $169,606; 1894, $106,201; 1895,
$142,178; 1896, $166,623; 1897, $137,930; 1898,
$321,192. It was evident from this show
ing that the payments were not made
because the rate was too high. From
a business standpoint the bill should
not pass. No hardship was worked on
the holders of the certificates at 5 per
cent. If they wanted a loan they
would have to pay at least 6 per cent.
Mr. Roberts (Rep.), of Hennepin,
wanted the bill referred back to the
committee on public lands, of which he
was chairman, so that it could be
amended to provide for a 4 per cent
rato on future certificates.
Mr. Dwinnell objected, saying as the
committee reported in favor of the
passage of the bill it would probably
come back in the same form.
Mr. Jacobson put an end to the de
bate by moving that the bill be made a
special order for Tuesday morning at
10:80 o'clock, and this was agreed to.
H. P. 56, by Mr. Fosnes (Union), of
Chlppewa, the other bill on the calen
dar, was given Its third reading and
passed by a vote of ninety ayes ana
none in the negative. The bill la to
reach a contention which has arisen
in the western part of the state grow
ing out of the Hastings & Dakota
land grant and the settlers. By mis
representation the settlers have been
induced to take leases of the land. The
supreme court has held that action
cannot be maintained to dispute the
title, by a party who is in actual pos
session and that the party must have
been deprived of possession before he
can commence action. The bill allows
the rule of law to be changed so that
action can be commenced to dispute
the title without giving up possession.
A bill passed by the senate on
. Thursday, S. F. 92, by Mr. Wilson Rep),
of Hennepin, reached the house and
was read for the first time.
Mr. Dwlnnell (Rep.), of Hennepin,
moved the suspension of the rules and

the passage of the bill. The measure,
he said, provided for the official desig
nation of amendments passed and
known as General Statutes of 1894.
This complication was simply a pri
vate one, and there was some doubt
and uncertainty as to the validity of
the same. The senate Judiciary com
mittee had reported favorably on the
bill, and It had been passed under a
suspension of the rules in that body.
Mr. Jacobson (Rep.), of Lac gui
Parle, advised that the house should
first consider the bill. It had not been
considered by the judiciary committee
of the house, and he did not favor
rushing bills simply because the senate
had passed them.
Mr. Umland (Dem.), of Ramsey
moved the bill be referred to the ju
diciary committee, and Mr. Dwinnell
withdrew his motion.
The committee on legislation re
ported indefinite postponement on
three bills. The most important one
was H. F. 108, by Mr. Peterson (Rep.),
of Renville. This provided that no
state, county or city official should be

A bill to regulate the business of
private banking, H. F. No. 127, was
introduced yesterday by Mr. Argetsing
er (Rep.), of Blue Earth. The provi
sions are "that in towns of 500 inhabi
tants or less the cash capital of such
concerns shall not be less than $5,000,
and In towns of over 500 lnhabitans the
capital is to be not less than $10,000.
The entire capital is to be paid in
cash before the bank commences busi
ness, although the superintendent of
banks may accept in lieu of not more
than 75 per cent of such capital good
as-sets of any solvent institution Here
tofore doing business as a private bank,
which proposes to continue in business
under the provisions of the new law.
The banking concerns under the act
are required to have at all times an
available fund of 20 per cent of all im
mediate liabilities and whenever the
available funds fall below the 20 per
cent the bank shall not. make any new

Some gossip has been caused by the
holding up of the report of the senate
committee on legislative expenses fa
voring the appointment of a pair of
Twin City newspaper men to be clerks
of committees In the senate. W. W.
Jermane, of the unsullied Evening
Journal, of Minneapolis, not desiring to
be contaminated by association with
other newspaper men, was shrewd
enough to slip through a resolution
bearing his name only which was pairs- '.
ed, he being vouched for by the c&Jlr*"
man of the committee on railroads to
which he was assigned.
The other newspaper men, Fred Vaa
Duzee, of the Pioneer Press, and W. E.
Verity, of the Tribune, of Minneapolis,
were given assignments by the party
caucus, but the legislative expenses
committee. Instead of passing the re
quisitions for jobs promised by the
caucus, proceeded to institute a little
retrenchment and reform, and gave
three of the men half a dozen clerk
ships each. Verity's list Included the
committee on llnance, of which Sena
tor Knatvold is chairman. The Free
born county orator had calculated on
a soung man from his constituency
being clerk of his committee, but the
legislative expenses committee seems
to have concluded that the chaplaincy
was sthjlls enough for that district to
Senator Knatvold fought the resolu
tion, as reported by the committee, and
as a result, Van Duzee and Biorn were
hung up along with Verity. Senator
Daugherty, of Duluth, was also stir
red up a bit when he found out what
had been done, for one of the commtt
tfces included in the report was one on
which he had expected to land Milie

There is an estrangement between
Representatives Jacobson arid Gutter
son, which may turn out to be nvjre
serious than it looks. It will be re
membered that when the Blue Earth
county man was a candidate for the
si/eakership, one of the things that
promised to stand in the way of his se
curing the nomination was the suppos
ed friendliness of Jacobson, one of the
most prominent men in the Second dis
tiict, for C. P. Staples, who was also
a candidate, presumptively at least.
Thomas Torson, who was in Gutter
fion's party, had been entrusted as a
leader of his campaign, but when it
became necessary to make a truce with
the man from Lac gui Parle, Torson
tuok second place on Gutterson's cam
paign committee and Jacobson became
Gutterson's manager, nominally, at
least. It soon became apparent, how
ever, that the Dare people were getting
things rounded up in pretty good shape,
and when it came around to Gutter
son's district the committee snoils had
been pretty well cut up, and "the Sec
or.d district did not get the slice that
It had usually been provided with. The
representative from Blue PJarth, it
seems, has been doing gome tali think
ing for a month or so, and when he
saw the fat places that Staples and
Jiicobson got on Dare's committees, he
may have wondered whether or not he
had been thrown down by his supposed
friends. He rested quietly under the
chafing arrogance of Jacobson, how
ever, until Friday afternoon, when at
the hearing of the committee on taxes
and tax laws, Jacobson tried to ride
over Gutterso'n's express company tax
ation bill rough shod. Then Gutterson
declared himself and plainly, too, so
plainly, indeed, that Torson, who is
something of a peacemaker and a be
liever In harmony, even at the cost of
fighting for it. was moved to suggest
that the committee go into executive

The Ramsey county delegation in the house
is certainly the heaviest in avoirdupois. AM
of the members are heavyweight? with the
exception.! 1 of Messrs. Henneasy and Dunn,
who are supposed to make up in brain tissue
what they lack in flesh.

Some of the new members have figured it
out that whenever Mr. Guttersen, of Blue
Earth, takes one side of a question, either in
debate on a resolution or a bill, Mr. Jacob
son, the member from Lac aui Parle, takes
the other cud of the proposition. Both gen
tlemen are members of the majority party,
so the state is saved, anyway.

Remarkable Remedy Which It
BrlnginK Comfort to Thousands
of Sufferers.
Probably half the people who see
this article suffer from piles. It is o. a
of the commonest diseases and on:.* of
the most obstinate. People have it for
years and just because it is not im
mediately fatal they neglect it. Care
lessness causes no end of suffering.
Carelessness about "so simple a th ng
as piles hau often caused death. Hem
orrhages occur from no apparent
cause and loss of blood causes de.ith.
Hemorrhages occur during surg cai
treatment, often causing death.
Piles are simple in the beginning
and easily cured. They can be cured
even in the worst stages, without pain
or loss of blood, quickly, surely and
completely. There is only one remedy
that will do it — Pyramid Pile Cure.
It allays the inflammation immedi
ately, heals the irritated surface and
with continued treatment reduces the
swelling and puts the membranes into
good, sound, healthy condition. The
cure is thorough and permanent.
Here are some voluntary and un
solicited testimonials we have lately
Mrs. M. C. Hinkley, 601 Mississippi
St., Indianapolis, Ind., says: Hava
been a sufferer from the pain and an
noyance of Piles for fifteen years, the
Pyramid Pile Cure and Pyramid Pills
gave me immediate relief and In a
short time a complete cure.
Maj. Dean, of Columbus, Ohio, says:
I wish to add to the njp.nber of cer
tificates as to the benefits derived from
the Pyramid Pile Cure. I suffered
from piles for forty years and from
itching piles for twenty years and two
boxes of the Pyramid Pile Cure has
effectually cured me.
Most druggists sell Pyramid Pile
Cure or will get it for you if you ask
them to. It is one dollar per package
and it is put up only by the Pyramid^.
