No Better Way of Determining
One's Physical Condition.
Impure Blood Denotes a Dis
ordered System.
How to Gain Health and Purify
this Life-Generating Fluid.
Pure blood means good health. ** Impure
blood leads to sickness and death.
Impurities of the blood that can be seen
externally, originate in some one of the
great vital organs of the body.
When you see a man or woman with a
face that is covered with blotches, pimples,
or eruptions you may be sure that they are
Buffering internally from some terrible affec
tion. Such cases on investigation will be
found to be most serious.
People who die from impure blood when
examined after death disclose the fact that
tiio kidneys had been eaten away by de
structive ulcerations. The stomachs of such
victims are found to be covered with terri
ble and virulent penetrating ulcers. The
liver of such sufferers will have hardened,
and will bo found to be absolutely disabled
bo that it was unable during life to perform
its functions. Doctors find on examination
that the lungs and the heart in such cases
have always become affected.
Do not go another day with 'your blood
filled with impurities.
This is the time of year when you can best
gel rid of such troubles.**
Nature is endeavoring to help you discard
all obnoxious secretions from your blood.
You should help her. -7.
Take Dr. Greeno's Nervura blood and
nerve remedy.
It counteracts the terrible poisons that
already exist. It stops their formation. It
expels from the body through the natural
channels those that are already prepared to
create havoc.
It gives health and strength to each and
every one of the vital organs.
it cures all of these great life-centres of
ths damage that lias already been done them
from these terrible blood poisons, and it gives
strength and a healthy tone to the nerves.
Mr. Lncien Rodd, Whitehall, N.Y., 6ays :
Some years ago I suffered very greatly
from insomnia, nervous prostration, and my
body was covered with sores, causing me
great pain and annoyance. -My head was so
covered with sores that I was hardly able
to comb it, and to brush it was impossible, so
great was the pain occasioned. I consulted
local physicians without, success or benefit.
I was told that my disease was incurable,
and had about come to the same conclusion
myself, and had made up my mind to go to
a hospital and await death. At this time I
learned of Dr. Greene's Nervura blood and
nerve remedy, which I began to use. This
remedy entirely relieved and cured me,
healed and dried up my sores, enabled mo
to sleep soundly and comfortably, and re
stored me to my ordinary vigor and vitality;
in short, it made a sound, well man out of
me so that I was fully able to work at my
occupation, and have done so since that
time." •
The above statement was made voluntarily
and sworn to and subscribed before the
Hon. Wm. H. Tefft, a notary public resid
ing at Whitehall, N.Y.
If there is any one who may feel that they
have special complications, we would recom
mend that such avail themselves of Dr.
Greene's generous offer and write to him or
rail on him at his office, 35 W. 14th St.,
New York City. .
The advice that this eminent specialist
will give absolutely free will he found to be
of untold value.

Absorption by Northern Pacific of
the Only lnue-iemlent Route
From Duluth Displease*
Lnc-Qui Parle Mini.
A concurrent resolution was intro
duced in the house yesterday by Repre
sentative Jacobson, calling for the ap
pointment of a joint senate and house
committee, consisting of one from the
upper and two from the lower brar-ch, to
examine into the consolidation of the
St. Paul & Duluth and the Northern
Pacific railroads last June.
The document recites in detail, the de
cision of the former state railroad and
warehouse commission, In which the sale
of the Duluth road to the Northern Pa
cific was held to be illegal, because of
the fact that the two lines were parallel
and competing. '.", - "TV
Continuing, the resolution says:
"And, Whereas,. The board of railroad
and warehouse commls:i.ners of the state
of Minnesota thereupon commenced an
action in the courts of this state to set
aside the said sale and transfer,'and to
prevent such consolidation, and alleged
among other things that said sale was il
legal and contrary to the statutes in
such case made and provided, and was
detrimental to the best interests of the
state, and therefore wholly void and with
out effect: and.
"Whereas, The board of railroad and
! warehouse commissioners did, on the
i 12th day of September, 11WJ. without going
| to trial, consent to a dismissal of said
j action, the alleged consideration for such
I dismissal being a memorandum signed by
I the president of the Northern Pacific
j Railroad company; and, -»
'Whereas, Gov. Lind, in his biennial
I message to this legislature, after reciting
! some of the facts in the case, advised
' that we take' formal action in the prem
i iscs."
The object of the resolution then fol
lows and includes a proviso that the com
mittee thus appointed be authorized to
send for persons and papers and to ad
minister oaths in the prosecution of their
Mr. Jacobson appends a memorandum
to his resolution, in which he says:
- "if it shall be found that the consoli
dation is illegal and the old corporation
of the St. Paul & Duluth Railroad com
pany Is either unable, owin_* to the dis
solution, or unwilling, if alive, to operate
its road in accordance with its charter,
the statute provides a remedy. The at
torney ' general can commence an action
to take possession of the road in the
name of the state, and the state can
either operate It or dispose of it, to be
run as an independent line, with the
usual restrictions governing other roads.
"But the question which mostly inter
ests the people of the state is the effect
the consolidation, if allowed to stand,
will have on the freight rates for the fu
ture. The old St. Paul & Duluth railroad
has for years been regarded by the peo
ple of the state as the most direct and
independent outlet for the surplus farm
produce between the Twin Cities and Du
luth, the only lake port. This independ
ent outlet has now been absorbed by
one of its (.Id competitors, the Northern
Pacific, and when the friendly relations
that are now known to exist between the
Northern Pacific and the Great Northern,
which owns one of the other outlets be
tween the Twin, Cities and Duluth, are
considered, it is apparent that there is
only one outlet as far as competition is
concerned, where there formerly were
three. The question then becomes of
such a serious nature, and the possible
consequences are fraught w th such grave
•import that if there is still a remedy in
existence it should be utilized and ap
plied in the most effective manner."
Beltrami County . Delegation and
Lumbermen Present Their Cases.
The senate and house joint judiciary
committee held, a session yesterday
afternoon and listened' to 7 arguments
from residents of Beltami county, their
counsel, lumbermen doing business in
that, county and : also . from counsel for
the latter respecting the present'state of
bankruptcy in that county, reports of
which have been fully, made . in the
Globe. Discussion centered on the
bill of Senator McCarthy which provides
for increasing the limit of indebtedness
and legalizing .certain acts of the resi
dents in overstepping the bounds of law
respecting the amount of indebtedness,
which the county could incur.' .
- Judge Hicks, of Minneapolis, appeared
in behalf of the lumbermen. His argu
ment was similar, to. that which has been
already advanced, and published. >He
maintained that* the lumbermen have
been paying their just proportion of tax
ation and that the citizens violated the
law in plunging the county into 'debt; \
. Attoney A. Y. Merrill, of Minneapolis,
who represented the .county, held that
the people were forced by stress 'of,cir
cumstances to go beyond the legal lim
itation of indebtedness, since-the' max
imum amount 1"of 'taxation,' $20,000, ' al
lowed by law for all purposes, was ab
solutely insufficient to meet the require
ments. - V. ■"
Officers of the county and others are to
be heard and the committee was unable
to take decisive action on the bill. -- '
Bill to Help Build Side Paths
Reaches the House.
The house session yesterday was
rather perfunctory, due,; largely to the
absence of so many members. Some had
gone to visit the state normals at Moor
head and St. Cloud and others went to
pay their, respects to the soldiers' home.
Mr. Hurd, in the -absence of Speaker
Dowllng, occupied the chair.'
A bill framed by the St. Paul Cycle
Path association was introduced by Mr.
Hurd. It- provides that any county or
city may construct cycle: paths at Its
discretion and for "their maintenance
levy a tax of 50 cents upon every wheel.
A fine of $25 and $50 is imposed upon all!
persona riding upon the paths without
a license. The bill will invite consider
able support, especially * from the Twin
Cities and apparently stands good
chances of passing. - -
Among the more important .measures
introduced was one from- Mr. Rich,
which provides an appropriation of
590,100 to the board of managers of the
state fair association for the pupose of
erecting necessary buildings ;at the
state fair grounds..-It is proposed to ex
pend $12,000 for the provision of adequate
water supplies for protection against -

C. S. Benson, of St. Cloud, was In the
city yesterday, making a particular call
upon Gov. Van Sant. Mr. Benson la
slated to become the superintendent of
the state reformatory at St. Cloud and
his mission was' in the interest of that
ambition. It is generally believed by
those able to judge, that the present
superintendent, Frank D. - Randall,
formerly of Winona, who was appointed
during Gov. Lind's administration to
succeed Mr. Holton. who resigned, will
be-removed notwithstanding the fact
that the present board of directors of the

for the place. He has been indorsed by
the Minnesota congressional delegation
at Washington through the "intercession
of Congressman Morris. For many
years Mr. Benson has been chairman of
the Sixth district congressional Repub
lican committee and this naturally gives
him a strong backing. from Morris.--
Mr. Benson is a St. Cloud business
man, having been a long time resident
of that city. He has been at the head
of several of the prominent business con.
cerns, such as the water works and

While there may 'be some slight oppo
sition it is pretty certain that the
Daugherty . plan for reapportionment,
adopted by the committee, will pass both
houses. Hennepin threatens still to
cause! some interference, but this will
of course be trivial. Mr. Larson, of
Redwood county, may submit a plan,
but it is doubtful if he can acquire any
material strength fort- his proposition.
The fact Is, the Daugherty plan is the
Republican machine plan and it was pre
destined *'or success long before the
committee was appointed. The delibera
tions of the committee were in reality
mere formalities. Not the slightest
change .was made in the plan from the
time the committee first, met. and no
power may now be expected to gain suf
ficient momentum to head oft this means
of dividing the state into nine new dis
tricts. Republicans are overwhelming
in their support of it.
The subcommittee appointed to frame
the bill embodying the plan of reap
portionment, held a conference with the
Ramsey County Bar association yester
day afternoon relative to legal techni
calities that should be made in the bill'
before its introduction. lhe measure

Senators Young and Lord and Repre

County Bar association as a subcom

should be made that would provide for
the technical legality of the measure, to

three gentlemen who are to frame and
introduce the bill are Senator Young and
Representatives Hymes and Jacobson.
It Is rumored that the three men whom
Gov. "Van Sant appointed to make inves
tigations as to the board of control In
neighboring states, C. A. Morey, W. E.

Careful Rending; of Ills Dill, How
ever, FnJln to Show Where
He Got the Worst
of It.
An aftermath of" Wednesday's discus
sion of the Burns-Thompson bill in the
senate, was the ..action of Senator
Thompson in arising to a ques
tion of personal privilege- yes
terday and scoring the press reports o.i
the debate upon the measure. The gen
tleman from Fillmore rebuked the press
hi general and paid his compliments" in
particular to the Pioneer Press. He
characterized reports of the debate as
misrepresenting and unfair. He said
that the country papers rely largely
upon the pres3 of the city for their in
formation with regard to the actions ot
the legislature, and that if these reports
were unfair, the lawmakers suffer. He
thought that the senate should devise
some means of obtaining fair reports.
"If the reporters have not brains
enough," he said, "to give honest re
ports (which I think they have, they
generally mean to be fair.) we should
employ other means of getting fair
treatment." " ■ .*■•
A careful reading of the reports re
ferred to, in every paper represented at
the legislature, shows an exact and con
scientious regard for the truth. The de
bate was reported as it occurred. There
were running comments in certain eases,
and but no misrepresentations of fact.
In a nutshell, ' the i Thompson-Burns
bill extends to private individuals the
same rights now enjoyed by corpora
tions, to erect telegraph and telephone
poles and string wires from them on
the. roads and byways-of the state. The
recent decisions of Judge Lochren, of
the United States^elrtjuit court, and of
Judge Cant, of the ; district court at Du
luth, interpret the words "roads and
byways"' legally to include !in their
. meaning, the streets;J&venues and alleys
of a.city. For fotty" years cities have
been disposing of their franchises to
companies, or denying them permission
to use their streets, through their com
mon council. The*tec|nt decisions affect
this privilege on tlge Hart of municipali
ties. As the law .no-* reads " and is in
terpreted, telephone and telegraph com
panies may enter *7«aty and usurp any
of its streets wit»ut| permission :of -the
city's governing poj^^ft -: .
The Thompson-Burns bill, extends this
privilege beyond tywjpgratlons to provide
individuals and aggravates the helpless
ness of cities in (.toe iter. Tlie Bald
win amendment offered Wednesday pro
vided that in cities of - 50,000 inhabitants
or over consent of the common Council
or governing power of such cities should
he obtained before entrance of the com
pany, for purposes of - Using' the streets,
should be permitted.'l Senator Thompson
protested that his bill is •' a farmers'
measure pure and simple. Everybody In
the- senate' and those who were ln the
chamber at the time of the debate,
agree that the measure is to Senator
Thompson's mind, purely as he states it.
He frankly admits "that'• he wants to
avoid a squabble j-ji between companies.
He says that "they"" have threatened to
kill his pet measure if it is mill-stoned
with amendments."!-j§ In *& vain,> Senator..
Baldwin, tried to make it clear to him
and to others that the proposed amend
ment would not affect, the bill in any
way except for. the protection of cities
already placed too much at the mercy of
corporations by the law, as interpreted.'
The amendment would not at all. have
interfered with the bill's provisions rel
ative to the rights of country folks to
.string-. < wires. all along country byways
and public roads. Senator Thompson
has one idea, which he reiterates. .It is f
that.--he->wants to save ..his hill. He is
willing to support any separate bill giv
; ing to cities any of. the privileges they
want; he simply., doesn't, want . any
amendments such as that proposed by
the Duluth senator tacked on to his
measure; he. doesn't want to Incur any
enmity; he is willing to support any
other measure; but wants his measure to
pass unamended. <V

posing the passage of the CV-toTT meat
inspection bill. The point made by the
gentlemen, who were granted a hearing,
was that they were opposed to the fee
system proposed, and did not care to
pay a fee to the national inspector and
to the state official. They were willing
to have all meats inspected, but did not
want the burden of fees Imposed in ad
dition to those already carried.

Milwaukee Road to Increase - Its
Capital TO Per Cent.
NEW YORK, Feb. 28.—The directors of
the. Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul rail
road, at their monthly meeting in this
city today recommended an increase of
10 per cent in the capital stock of the
company to provide . $4,300,000 to pay for
the Kansas City cut-off and reimburse
the company's treasury for $4,127,128 cap
ital . expenditures. The proposed issue
will be entirely in • common stock,
amounting to 88.153 shares. Both common
and preferred stockholders of record of
March 11 can subscribe to the new stock
at par, but holders of the various bond
issues which are convertible into pre
ferred stock are debarred from the priv
ilege. . - -
it was explained at the office of the
company that according to the rules gov
erning the various mortgages, which are
convertible into the preferred stock, no
tices of the intention to do so must be
given within from ten to fifteen days
after a dividend has been declared and
payable on the preferred stock. As the
semi-annual dividend on the common and
preferred stock of the road is not pay
able until April, and as the offer to pro
cure the new stock at • par only holds
good until: March 11, the mortgage hold
ers with- convertible privileges are thus
unable to take advantage of. the offer.

BISMARCK, N. D., Feb. .Special.)—
The senate yesterday passed a two-tenths
mill special tax for a wolf bounty after
a rather warm debate. The bill will prob
ably have a hard fight in the house, but
promises to pass. The primary election
bill has gone over to the committee of the
whole in the senate, and it is generally
expected it will be killed in committee.
The house passed the bill prohibiting
the sale of game birds. All the senate
bills were referred in the house, and a
large number of minor measures were
disposed of in both houses. The steering
committee in both houses have taken
charge of all bills, and new business will
be shut off March 1, unless by unanimous
consent. Gov. White approved the reap
portionment bill, and it is now a law.
There has been considerable said in the
valley papers about he prevalence of
smallpox in this city, and a great ado
has been made of it until ha f the mem
bers of the legislature were ready, on
their return from the recess, to pass the
appropriation bills and make their es
cape. It has been found, however, that
there Is a needless excitement in other
-parts of the state over what many doubt
to be the smallpox. None of the cases
have been at all serious, and these which
have been sent to the house of detention
have hardly been in bed, and are reported
having the finest kind of jack rabbit
hunting on the outskirts of the city. The
health authorities have dene all that good
sense would dictate, and in two cases
where there was danger of infection a
strict quarantine has been enforced, and
there is little danger of anything further.
Maj. Fleming, Attorney Stambaugh,
James Kennedy, Mrs. de Lendrecie, Miss
Preston and many other parties of prom
inence from Cass county are on deck to

-Cashel's primary election law v. as the
subject of interesting parliamentary de
bate in the senate, over the adoption of
the majority and minority reports.
Both reports were thrown out, and
after many dilatory meetings had been
disposed of the matter went over to a
committee of the whole for action today.
Friends of the bill claim opponents hope
to defeat the bill without going on record
with a roll call, and a very interesting
flght is promised.
Senator Taylor's medical bill was trot
ted out again with a section eliminated
which shut out the practice of Christian
science, osteopathy, magnetic healing,
etc., but was sidetracked till today.
Representative Leech has withdrawn
his divorce bill, as the opposition was too
strong. The house passed a bill for
bonds for a twine plant at the peniten
tiary; also a bill allowing the designa
nation of two papers In one town as of
ficial; also a bill allowing a charge of
fees in the state land department. If this
becomes a law- the department will be
come self-supporting. March 1 was made
the last day for the introduction of bills
in the house. .-.-.. VV7-
