Speaking of the anti-boycott bill the
Union Advocate in its Issue of today will
"The infamous anti-boycott bill has met 1
it- fate, and the event has shown that
the Union Advocate was not much out of
the way in the opinions which it ex
press. >d regarding the measure and Its
authors, real and nominal. There is one
statement made, however, that should be
modified. This paper referred to the gen
tleman who introduced the measure as
having a load of hay seed in his hair.
We readily acknowledge our mistake in
that respect. Mr. O'Neill's hair showed
no s!?ns whatever when we saw him last
of having recently been strewn with that
rural product. The influence of the hay
on Mr. O'Neill's character and gen
eral conduct In legislation, however. Is
not to be questioned. It is possible that
our mistake was made in locating the
hay seed In Mr. O'Neill's hair. The In
dications all have been that much of the

The annual ball of Pressfecders' Union
No. 9 will take place at Mozart hall on
Saturday evening, April 8. Over five hun
dred tickets have been disposed
of for the event and success is already
assured. Chairman J. P. Master, of the
finance committee, who has charge of the
affair, announces that from all reports
the affair promises to be one of the most
successful ln the history of the union.
Several special features have been ar
ranged for the occasion, the principle
feature being a cake walk, for whleb-sev
eral prizes have been offered. This feat
ure of the programme will be participated

cided to enter the contest for the cake.
The ball will be attended by a delega
tion of about fifty from the Minneapolis
union, who Intend chartering a special

Forming New I'nloim.
The organization of two new local
unions is being contemplated by Organ
izer John F. Krleger. of Assembly hall.
One Is the organization into a union of
all the local tile workers and the other
is the organization of the day laborers
into a local union.
A meeting of all the day laborers, re
gardless of their occupation, will be held
at Assembly hall on Friday evening,
April 7 next, when It Is hoped to form
a temporary organization.
A meeting of the local tile workers will
be held at Assembly hall in the near
future for the same purpose.

Day of It.
An alarm of fire was turned in last
night at lO^o'clock from a lodging house
at 385 Washington street, kept by W. B.
Maxwell. The blaze was caused by a de
fective chimney, and the loss was nomi
nal. The property Is owned by O'Hal
loran & Murphy.
A second fire ln the basement of the
Hanan Shoe company's store at the cor
ner of Wabasha and Sixth, caused a
crowd to gather. The department was
called out, but It was found that there
was nothing more serious than a smoul
dering fire in a box of ashes, ln which
refuse had been dumped.
Fire broke out early yesterday morning
In the residence of w. E. Brimhall on
Snelling avenue. The house was of frame
construction, and before the Merrlam
Park engine company could respond, was
burning fiercely.
Sparks from the burning building set
fire to the residence of William Bayless
and to a barn and chicken house on the
Brimhall property. Before the firemen
could get a stream on the blazing build
ings, the Brimhall house was a mass of
flames. The barn and chicken house were
too far gone to repay an effort, and
streams of water were poured into the
house. The wind which prevailed at the
time made It impossible to save the build
ings, and with contents It is a total loss.
The Bayless family were ln bed at the
time the fire was discovered, but the
Brimhalls were away from home. Mr.
Bayless' loss is $3,000, and that of Mr.
Brimhall $4,000. Partial Insurance covers
the losses to some extent.

department was called out and extin
guished the blaze with about $150 damage.
Aboot the Identity of the Body Sup
posed to Be That of Harris.
O. B. Harris, father of Corporal Oliver
E. Harris, who died at Santiago during
the summer, stated to The Globe yester
day that the report in an evening paper
to the effect that the remains of his son
would be brought to St. Paul was made
ln error.
Mr. Harris said he had forwarded a
request to the Washington officials that
Corporal Harris be buried in the national
burying ground at Washington, D. C.
While Mr. Harris is confident that his
son is dead, there is no certainty that
the Harris referred to in the Washing
ton dispatch is Corporal Oliver E. Har
ris, of the Second United States regiment.
The record gives only the first name and
credits him to the Second Massachusetts.
However, the record is supposed to be at
fault, as Inquiry develops the fact that
no such name appears on the record of
the Massachusetts volunteers.

Common Talk Around Walker That
the Lumbermen Were Cutting
Virgin Pine, Although They Have
No Right toi Cat the Live Trees—
A Number of Protests Have Been
Sent to Washington.
Grave charges have been made from
time to time against the lumber com
panies operating on the Leech Lake In
dian reservation. The Globe a week
ago sent a special correspondent to the
Leech Lake agency, who made a thorough
Investigation, resulting ln the collection
of evidence, that the Indians are not only
losing their timber, but that, too, right
under the noses of the Indian officials,
who are fully Informed of the matter.
At Walker the statement was made on
every hand by county officials and business
men, that Supt. Rosa and his two assist
ants were permitting, purposely or ig
norantly, the lumber companies to con
' tinue their depredations on reservation
pine, and It was said by a number of re
liable people that 50 per cent of the sea
son's cut was green timber, which should
not have been cut, but was being taken
'under the dead and down act.
Some of the operators have publicly ad
! mltted this around Walker. The claim is
freQuently made that the Washington
officials ought to order a speedy Investi
gation. Capt. H. R. Mercer, Indian agent
for the reservation, and Dr. E. S. Hart,
overseer and physician, have written the
strongest kinds of appeals to the secre-
I tary of the interior urging an Immediate
i investigation and an order compelling the
I lumber companies to cease operations, if
trouble with the Indians this spring would
be avoided.
j These are only two of many complaints
which have been made to the department
of the Interior. In each case the matter
has been referred to a certain Washing
ton official who has chaage of the matter.
He ln turn has referred the matter to
Supt. Rosa, who. It Is alleged, has report
ed that there was nothing In the com
plaints. The lumber companies have gone
right on cutting logs all winter.
If the present rate cutting Is continued
there will not be a stick of timber of any
kind left standing on the reservation In
three years. This statement has been
made by the operators themselves and a
number of cruisers who make Walker
their headquarters.
It Is also rumored around Walker that
some thing Is to drop at Washington very
soon as the secretary of the interior has
been approached by Senator Davis, and a
most vigorous investigation Is to be con
ducted, and that the government dead
and down agents will not only be called
to account, but the lumber companies and
individuals logging on the reservation
will be prosecuted criminally.
The "dead and down" system of cut
ting pine is declared by the friends of the
Indians to be rotten to the core, and if
the matter is aired it will result In tlelng
up 30,000,000 feet of the finest virgin white
pine timber in the state, which is now
laying on the ice in the booms at each
of the big landings on Leech and Cass
Aside from the robbery of millions of
standing pine under the dead and down
act Beveral people are cutting a great
deal of fine pine from Indian allotments.
The Indians are given allotments of land
for agricultural purposes, but for some
reason or other which no one has ever
been able to explain these allotments
were made of timber land by a former ad
ministration at the agency. The lumber
companies are given permits to cut tim
ber from the allotments every day, and
they have no right to do it.
This is only one evidence of the loose
manner ln which the agency has been
conducted for years. Capt. Mercer, who
has recently taken charge, Is determined
that the Indians shall have justice, but
despite his repeated protests there Is
some influence at Washington which
keeps the matter from publicity.
Stores have been built on the reserva
tion, and saw mills put up ln the past,
seemingly without any regard whatever
to the laws regulating such matters. The
Indians aside from the administration of
Dr. E. S. Hart have had but little atten
tion, and it Is remarkable that there has
not been more trouble than has occurred,
but there Is a spirit of unrest among
all the Indians, and especially the Bear
Islanders, who seldom come to town, and
who are "feeling very bad" as one of the
agency Indians put It.
• » •
The Nelson treaty, made in 1889, has
been repudiated by every Indian on the
reservation. The most objectionable feat
ure of the treaty is the clause which
permits the sale of the timber land on
low estimates, by order of the land de
partment, to the highest bidder. The In
dians do not want to Bell their land on
this kind of an estimate, as they only
receive a small part of Its actual value.
However, the postponment of the sale
day before yesterday by the interior de
partment has caused a much better feel
ing among the Indians. With this sale
the Indians would lose Iheir land, their
homes and only receive pay for the
amount of the "live estimate," while the
lumbermen would acquire all the hard
wood timber, all the dead and down and
all that is the least bit scorched without
making a return to the Indians.
Capt. Mercer favors the La Point sys
tem of marketing logs for the reserva
tion and believes It to be the most prac
tical and feasible solution to the situa
tion. He successfully directed the affairs
of the La Point agency in Wisconsin,
where the system was in vogue. The logs
are scaled on the bank and the Indians
receive pay for every log brought to the
landing, and the chances for fraud are
reduced to a minimum. There has never
been any disgraceful scandals connected
with the La Point system, and It has
been strongly urged by legitimate lum-
Ladies who leave their
orders for Waists now can
have theirs orders filled
bermen, as Bhown In the interviews pub
lished in The Globe today.
Capt. Mercer thinks that mills should
be established around the lake and the
logs manufactured Into lumber right on
the reservation, as it would give the In
dians employment for a part of the year
and a schedule price would be paid by
the mills for all kinds of logs.
Big lumbering concerns are anxious
that no more "dead and down" pine
should be cut on the reservation, as it
brings the Indian timber, which was pur
chased for a song,, into competition with
their product, which they have paid good
etumpage price for and hired cruisers
for years to protect.
The lumber companies operating on the
reservation, as nearly us can be learned,
are paying little or no attention to the
"dead and down/ and not even pretend
to comply with the law.
The government markers, who mark the
dead and down logs in the woods, are paid
$50 per month and have to board them
selves. They board at the camps, and the
contractors do not at most charge them
as much as they would have to pay at
It has been charged, but The Globe
does not claim it to be a fact, that squaw
men have been known to have been hired
to go ln and set a fire; the fire scorches
the barks of the trees, which Is* sufficient
excuse, the lumbermen think, to cut the
trees, although It takes a-pretty hard Are
to kill a tree within a year, or even five
Out of the fifty Chippewa Indians who
made applications for logging contracts,
with the exception of one they were turn
ed down and the contracts awarded to
half-breeds, mixed bloods and squaw men,
who had a little pull. The White Earth
operators, who have logged on the White
Earth Indian reservation for fifteen years,
after stripping it of all the standing pine,
transferred their operations a few years
ago to Leech, Lake Cass, Lake Winni
begoshish. and are cutting the timber for
the firms that are putting up the money
Just as fast as possible.
Supt. Rosa and his assistants, McCoy
and McClure, visit the camps occasion
ally, but their large crop of estimators
found more or less time to sit around the
hotel lobbies at Bralnerd and Walker.
Follce Think That Minneapolis is
the Base of Operntlons.
The city detective force are of the
opinion that the recent burglar epidemic
Is traceable to Minneapolis, the home of
other "good things." The robbery of the
Moennich tailor shop Thursday night, was
thought at first to be the work of certain
shady gentlemen of this city, but they
were reported yesterday, to have been
seen about a mile from the scene of the
burglary at the time it occurred. Chief
Schweitzer advances the theory that the
men who have operated here recently,
notably ln the Kessler and Milton dairy
robberies, and Thursday night's burglary,
came from Minneapolis to operate here,
going back on the late interurban car.
There is good evidence to back the
theory. Strict orders have been Issued
by Chiefs Goss and Schweitzer, and the
first burglar found operating is billed for
a hot reception.

ity—-Tho»e Present.
Col. A. Allen, of the Merchants' hotel,
gave a very enjoyable banquet last even
ing at the hotel to his legislative friends
and guests. The private dining room was
elaborately decorated for the occasion
with cut flowers and palms, and a man
dolin orchestra, together with the Ma
sonic quartette, of Minneapolis, rendered
a musical programme. Speaker Dare and
Lieut. Gov. Lyndon A. Smith acted as
After the menu had been disposed of
Col. Allen Introduced the quartette, who
sang about "sparkling ruby wine" ln
honor of the h«st, and Representative
Boutwell, who said he was the oldest
friend of Col. Allen present, made a lit
tle speech. He had known the colonel
since 1863, and had always thought him
to be one of the best judges of a horse
ln existence. Incidentally he paid a high
tribute to the colonel's knowledge of the
requirements of legislative appetites.
Speaker Dare assumed the chair for a
few minutes and called the "house" to
order and then gave way to Lieut. Gov.
J. Adam Bede, who was the first speak
er introduced, told about cows. "Be kind
to your cows," he said. "Gradually you
will learn thereby to be kind to other
animals and eventually to your wives."
"And become cowed," broke in Sepator
John Ives.
Then Mr. Bede said that in his opinion
the dairy cow should reside in the coun
try and that he thought a cow better
for dairy purposes than an ox.
Other speakers followed and the ban
quet was prolonged until a very late
hour. Among those present were:
Lieut. Gov. Smith, Speaker A. N. Dare,
Congressman Tawney, Senators Ives,
Buckman, McCarthy, Larson, Baldwin,
