For the horse, as for his master,
Ivory finds abundant scope;
Galls and scratches heal much faster,
When well cleansed with Ivory Soap.
Where 'tis used, the work is lighter,
Sleek and smooth the horses' coats.
Harness softer, carriage brighter,
And — a final charm — it floats.

SAL- OF THE BADGES
ENTHUSIASM OF PATRIOTIC HUS
TLER- INCREASES AS THE
DAYS GO ON
ENTERPRISE IS A SUCCESS
Police Department Makes a Splen
did Showing, and Its Work Is Not
Yet Completed—lt Is Expected
That hy Saturday Night the Nec
essary Amount Will Have Been
Raised and the Money Banked.
As the days pass the interest and en
thusiasm of those enlisted in the sale of
badges for the Thirteenth does not
diminish in the least. On the contrary,
all alike are looking forward with gen
uine pleasure to next Saturday night,
when it is expected that love's labor will
be done, and the grand achievement at
tempted by the citizens accomplished.
Then it will be but a short time until
the return of the boys of he Thirteenth
regiment to their native soil after over a
year's absence from loved ones on the
other side of the globe. No welcome can
be too cordial, for the boys of Minne
sota's baner regiment, and it is a feeling
of loyalty and patriotism that moves
every on£ who is in any way assisting
in the work. The brave hearts who faced
the elements of the tropics and the bar
barian warfare of the Filipinos are de
serving of all this that our citizens are
preparing for them, and it is with evi
dent pleasure that many are giving as
much of their time as possible to the
The six thousand dollar mark has been
nearly reached. Four days yet remain in
which to complete the work and the In
terval will be a busy one. It is the in
tention Of the committee to have every
thing checked up and a final report made
by Saturday night. As fast as the money
is collected and turned In It is entered
upon the books and deposited to the
credit of the Thirteenth regiment fund.
. In this way there will be no delay and by
the end of the week the committee will
know just where it stands, and be in a
position to make a report for the public.
POLICEMEN ARE HUSTLERS.
The thirty-five members of the police
force who have so ably assisted the com
mittee yesterday collected another $250.,
which was turned over yesterday after
noon by Chief Goss. The amount was
collected by the various stations as fol
lows: Central, $153; Rondo, $■!:'; Mar
garet, $20; Prior, $20, and Ducas, $14. It is
expected that the policemen will dispose
of several hundred more badges. Their
total sales now amount to about $1,600, a
record which .speaks for itself.
The announcement that President
Hamlin, of the Commercial club, will
shortly designate a day on which the
money collected by the citizens selling
badges for the Thirteenth regiment fund
will be turned over to Secertary Stine,
will furnish an additional impetus to the
work of those engaged in the patriotic
work. Everybody selling badges will un
questionably put forth every effort to
make as good a record aspossible. One
thing is certain and that it, that St. Paul
will more than furnish her quota for the
fund. The badges are in evidence now
more than ever before, and every citizen
who is desirous of appearing on the
streets as a friend and helper of the sol
dier boys on the day of the regiment's
return will see to it that he is not
missed in the distribution of the badges.
At the meeting of the special advisory
committee, held yesterday afternoon in
the rooms of the Commercial club, Mayor
Kiefer presided as usual. Among the
hustlers present were: Conde Ham in,
Ique Lederer, M. W. Gcss, C. P. Stine,
W. L. Ames. P. J. Schaub, C. B. Bowlby,
Jesse Gregg, D. Moreland, Edward Feld

ABOUT THE TOWN.
Robert street was reported pretty well
covered, with the exception of the doc
tors' end of the Arcade building. Sev
enth street had been canvassed by only
a few of the persons assigned to it, and
in the opinion of J. M. Bowlby, 200 mor_
badges could be sold in the stores along
that street, if it were thoroughly gone
Ike Lederer reported that the managers
and owners of several of the large fac
tories had refused to allow any canvass
ers to go through the establishments,
fearing it would demoral'ze the men and
interrupt work, when th? factories are
already behind in getting out thai* or
ders. Most of the-employers stated that
they would have no objection to a can
vass during the noon hour. Several de
clared that they could not allow work to
be interrupted, but would cheerfully pay
into the fund any amount that the com
mittee might ask for, if it were needed.
A frequent excuse made by some per- :
sons appointed to canvass buildings was
that the police had already covered the
ground. Chief Goss stated that th
policemen had not been allowed to enter
any large buildings for that purpose as
it would practically take them off their

- Friday and Saturday will be banner
days for the sale of badges. As a great
many people receive their salaries on Sat
urday, It is expected that the amount of
money secured on that day will prove a
very substantial addition to the fund.
The various committees appointed to
solicit funds for the return of the Thir
teenth Minnesota volunteers from San
Francisco to' Minnesota began their work
yesterday morning, and although it was
impossible to state just how much had
been raised up to last evening, W. C.
Ttfasterman, who is a member of £ the
badge distribution committee, said that
he felt reasonably certain that of all of
Stillwater's proportion was in sight. Sev
eral $100 subscriptions were received, and,
as a rule, business men and others were
exceptionally liberal, many $50 and $23
contributions having been made. Chil
dren's badges were also issued and hun
dreds of them were disposed of. Many
badges were taken to the mills and other
institutions in and near the city, and no
reports will be received from them until
today or tomorrow, and for that reason
it will be impossible to tell' just how
much has been raised. Everybody was
interested in the work, and the universal
opinion last evening was that Stillwater
had again done nobly. The committees
started out in the hope of getting $3,500,
and members of the committee who have
been watching the canvass closely and
are in a position-' to judge, say that the
full amount will be in the hands of Treas
urer Burke within a short time. '
The money continued to come in from
the country yesterday and when the last
letter was opened-and the mayor's office
was closed last night there were $9,837 in
the Minneapolis fund. The proceeds from
the Banda benefits of last Satur
day are not included in this amount.
They will swell it at least $700, instead of
$500 as was at first announced. More
tickets have been sold than was at first
thought and 'the returns are not all in
yet. It is not yet known who won the
prizes offered to the boys and girls sell
ing the most J tickets. The list will be
made up today and lf it should happen
that anyone who has not yet reported
has sold the greater number, that one
will be short just one prize, for the list
of winners will be made up from those
who have reported up to noon today.
ACTIVITY AT HAMLINE.
Workers at the Fair Grounds Are
Taking Hold With a Will.
Yesterday was a warm day in town,
but it was warmer yet at the fair
grounds out Hamline way. Ordinarily it
is the latter part of the week proceeding
the fair before any great activity is seen
about the fair grounds outside the secre
tary's office; but this year train loads of
machinery and other articles for exhibit
were being switched into the fair ground
tracks yesterday morning and wagons
were busy unloading the goods and haul
ing them to the buildings. Workers are
taking hold with a will. There is a ten
dency this year to get out to the fair
grounds early. Exhibitors are putting in
an appearance before they are expected
and right glad the fair people are to see
them. For there Is such a crowd of ex
hibits this year that there will be none
too much time in which to get the stuff
into order. To meet the demands of the
exhibitors most of the superintendents
were at the grounds yesterday and .will
continue throughout the week. , One of
the most gratifying and significant things
in connection with the fair is the attitude
of the railroads towards it. Several of
the roads are doing special advertising.
The Soo, for instance, has gotten out a
long "hanger"—about two feet from top
to bottomon fine paper calling attention
to the fair attractions, printing the whole
programme for the week and illustrating
the whole with'a handsome half-tone en,
graving of a view of the fair grounds.
The Omaha road 1. doing much the same
thing, and other roads are supposed to
be following suit. ;' Nearly all will have
special trains. The Great Northern has
sized up the situation and has put on
three specials', to be run as follows:

Hutchinson. 0:50 a,' m., arriving in Min
neapolis P. 10 a. m., St. Paul 9:35 a." m.

RIGHT FROM TBE WAR
DR. JOHN B. DARLING, SURGEON
OF THE THIRD REGIMENT,
BEINGS SOME SPECIAL NEWS
Details in Graphic Style the Story
of the Regiment So Far in Its
Connection With the Filipino
War—Says the Insurgents Always
Run From Yankee Bullets, hut
Don't Go Far Before They Stop.
Tanned and bronzed by the tropical
sun, Dr. John B. Darling, surgeon of the
Third regiment, has returned to St. Paul
with a great deal of interesting news
about the officers, m«n and engagements
of the Third itgimert, which n_s hither
to not been given much publicity in the
pi ess dispatches. Dr. Darling left St.
Paul last winter with the regiment for
the Philippines, and has spent a very ac
tive season dur'-g al: its engagements
o.i the island. TTe w-f accompanied as
far as San Francisco by Maj Hannay,
who Is still re. »p3:*Jiting on the oaj t.
"I suppose," said the doctor, "St. Paul
people will be most interested to know
how the regiment has fared since leaving
St. Paul. The Third is one of the hard
est worked regiments in the Philippines
and I think saw as much actual fighting
as any of the commands now stationed
about Manila. Maj. Hannay covered
himself all over with glory in several
engagements that he was in, and the
command. has been highly praised by
Gen. Mac Arthur and other field officers
"Dr. Hoyt is still with Gen. MacAr*
thur's division, but is looking very poor
ly. I saw him the day before I left and
he told m. tie Intended to stay, if possi
ble. He had lost about fifty pounds, and
was hardly strong enough for his duties.
"The ocean voyage did a great deal for
Maj. Hannay, and I think after the first
week there was not a man on the vessel
that was not able to be around. Lieut.
Trowbridge, of the Thirteenth, is a man
that has won high praise from his supe
riors. His work in the secret service bu
reau filled a long felt want in the field,
and some of his daring escapades would
make interesting narratives indeed. He
accomplished some seemingly impossible
feats in going through the enemy's lines,
and his work as a scout was highly
commended on every hand. The other
officers of the regiment have all acquitted
themselves with credit. Second Lieuts.
Giddinrgs, Hannay, Burr and Pond have
been advanced to first lieutenants, and
Mcßhea. Freeland and Andrews of that
rank have been made captains.
"Lieut. Foster, one of this year's grad
uates from West Point, was assigned to
Third regiment, and before he had been
in the service a month he was taken
down with typhoid fever, which carried
him off. All things considered, the
health of the regiment is good, and the
wives of the officers are making tfca
best of their surroundings. It has rained
incessantly for some time. Five inches
of rain fell in one day, and for a time It
seemed as if the boys had to sleep in
about, a foot of water.. The men can't
put on new clothes, as they are soaked
through the minute they get out of a
shelter. Some of the boys almost feel
as if they had web feet by this time.
"The regiment was fifty-eight days on
the way over. During April, eight men
were killed in engagements, and up to
the middle of May the regiment was in
action very nearly every day. About
this time the fight at Baliwag took place
and four companies of the Third were en
gaged with a force of 2,000, under Gen.
Luna, between 7 a. m. and 6 p. m. It
was for bravery during this engagement
that Maj. Hannay was specially compli
mented by his superiors. •
"An incident happened during this bat
tle which shows what sort of metal our
soldiers are made of. Maj. Hannay waa
leading the batallion when an insurgent
bridge was reached, where a large body
of Phllipinos were entrenched at the far
end. It was found necessary to send a
company over to drive the rebels out, i
and turning to his command he called
the officer of the front rank company to
go in and drive the enemy from their
position. Imagine his surprise when his
son, who was in command of a company
owing to the shortage of officers, scarce
ly out of his teens, came about with his
command. But the major never faltered
and the boy led the charge that resulted
in victory, but was one of the most stub
bornly resisted of the battle. During this
engagement the bullets came so thick
that you could see them in the air
They resembled asparagus stalks. The
Third regiment has been at Baliwag slnco
this battle and has been doing some very
disagreeable but important guard duty
"What do I think of the Filipinos as
fighters? Well, they can't stand a charge
and always run from Yankee bullets, but
they don't run verysfar. They are scon
back in position again ready for another
brush. They are playing a tantalizing
game juat at present with Macarthur's
division. Every night about sundown a
couple of hundred will make a desultory
attack, but It compels the general to
turn out all his men and be in readiness.
They are good fighters from the bush.
"The. popular impression of the Filipino
in this country is very misleading as to
his true identity. The natives are much
more intelligent than they are supposed

STATE IS THE LOSER
FLEET OWNERS UNDERWRITE
THEIR VESSELS IN COMPANIES
OTHER VIOLATION'S OF LAW
Insurance in mis si oner O'Shaugh
nessy Determined to Probe the
Affair to the Bottom—Fees Have
Been Lost Involving' Thousands
of Dollars—Foreign Vessel Own
ers Evading Payments.
Insurance Commissioner O'Shaughnessy
Is instituting a vigorous crusade against
insurance companies and the Insured
who are trying to evade the insurance
laws of the state. Mr. O'Shadghnessy
believes that the state has been losing
thousands of dollars annually In fees
through the practice of fleet owners on
the great lakes in placing Insurance In
foreign insurance companies outside the
In many cases insurance on the boats
and cargoes has been placed with com
panies that have no representation or
license to do business In this state. He
is cognizant of a number of cases where
large blocks of insurance have been
placed through Eastern brokers with
companies that have not qualified under
the state law. One of these cases In
volved a premium of $200,000, which, if
the risk had been written through legal
channels, would have netted the state a
fee of $4,000. The practice of writing
"over head" insurance.risks of this class
has become quite prevalent, Mr.
O'Shaughnessy believes, and he is deter
mined to probe the matter to the bottom.
Not alone with this class of business,
but there has been considerable apparent
violation of the law in other directions.
Commissioner O'Shaughnessy has been
quietly conducting an investigation since
he first assumed charge of the depart
ment and he believes that this is one of
the directions in which a vigorous reform
can be instituted with pecuniary profit
to the state.
The greater portion of owners of the
boats on the great lakes live In
other states, mostly in Ohio. They
have been quite successful in evasions of
the tax laws as well as the law which
places a minimum tax upon the Insur
ance. A few years ago the legislature
passed an amendment to the tax law
of the state, placing a tonnage tax on
vessels, ln lieu of a personal property tax
which had hitherto been In effect. This
is a loophole through which some of the
portly fleet owners crawl to avoid pay
ing their share cf the public tax. The
tonnage tax clause is little more than a
farce, as it scarcely imposes a tax at
all, while under the old system It was
possible to secure a tax upon a just valu
Mr.. O'Shaughnessy believes that the
present insurance law is adequate to cov
er the risks written on lake cargoes In
Minnesota. If the owners of the boats
lived in Minnesota there would not be
the slightest doubt of the applicability
of the law. As it is, the law says, "That
Insurance written on property in the
state shall be deemed to be made m this
state," and the commissioner asserts
that this provision covers the vessel men
to a T, and an explanation of the system
of placing insurance out of the state will
be shortly called for.
Mr. O'Shaughnessy returned the first of
the week from New York and while away
he made diligent inquiry into Ihe sub
ject, resulting ln a confirmation of his
first information on the subject, and the
collection of considerable data from the
New York end.
A heavy penalty ls attached to the vlo,
latlon of the insurance laws, to say
nothing of a possible prosecution for
perjury of some of the big companies
handling this class of business. A great
deal of insurance is placed by the vessel
men in companies that are authorized to
do business in Minnesota, but there is
reason to believe In some cases that the
companies have made false returns about
the premiums received. For instance a
company carries a line of boats and re
ceives a premium of $175,000 and as the
state insurance tax is levied on the basis
of the size of the premium, there is a dis
position to make a lower than the actual
return. In fact it is quite certain that
this has been done. The law says that in
cases where the insured desires to do
business with a foreign company not au
thorized to do business in the state, a
license must be procured, and renewed
every six months, a.nd a bond for $200
executed. /The penalty attached to each'
offense Is from $25 to $500.
Several lowa mutual companies have
also been writing insurance here without
a license, and they, too. will be brought
on the carpet before the state department
and be given a chance to explain. Among
the companies that have been reported
without licenses are the Mill Owners' Mu
tual, National Church Fire association
and several others.
