The Riedelsberger string quartette, as
sisted by Miss Clara Williams, of Min
:is. soprano, and Miss Ella Rich
ards, pianist, presented a brilliant pro
gramme last night at the' Schubert musi
cale given in Raudenbush hall. The
quartette, consisting of Carl Riedels
lirst violin; Artlm Bergh, second
violin; Louis Marr, viola, and William
Geist, 'cellist, was especially happy in
the selection of its numbers last evening:.
The thorough and musieianly work of
each member of the quartette wns par
ticularly noticeable and an admirable
unity which has heretofore not always
characterized its work was observable in
all its interpretations last night. Par
ticularly interesting was the quartette
arrangement by LKstenay, with piano ac
companiment. Tho four movements are
full of 'mis melody with an underlying
*s that speaks now and then
in grave passages. The' gayely of the
ailegrci movement is contrasted delight

report of smallpox cases in the state in
the past two weeks. There was a total
cf 361 cases, which is an increase of
thirty-three oases over the preceding two
weeks. Nine deaths were reported, mak
ii\c the fatalities about 2% per cent.
The lumber camps in the northern part
of the state continue to be the most badly
infected districts. Great difficulty has
been experienced in preventing the spread
of disease among the woodmen, as they
are generally afflicted with the contagion
until it lias had ample oppovcunity to
spread among the other workmen.
It is also anticipated by the health au
thorities that the epidemic will get a
fresh start In many localities when the
lumber season is over and the .camps
bieak up, as at that time the men who
have been working in the infected re
gions will be scattered over the state. It
is hoped, however, that the approach of
summer will help stamp out the disease

year, and it is easier to enforce quaran

In the past two weeks twenty-six cases
were reported from Anoka. twenty-one
from Bemidji. twelve from Minneapolis,

Commissioners l'r«e Leglitlaitare to
Give Them Eiiookli FundM
to Mttke a Oeditnble
H. P. Hall, chairman of the Pan-
American exposition commission, appear
ed before the house and the senate yes
terday and presented the report of the
commissioners, who have just returned
from a visit to the exposition grounds at
Buffalo. The commissioners confirm the
position of the Globe that the appro
priation of $20,000, made by the legisla
ture for the purpose of a Minnesota dis
play, is entirely too meager, and urge
it to be increased to $50,000.
After reading the report, Mr. Hall as
sured the legislature that it was the
earnest conviction of every member of
the commission that, unless the appro
priation be increased to the amount in
dicated, the state had better abandon the
idea of having an exhibit rather than at
tempt one with the small sum of 520,000.
The report, which has been filed with
the governor by the commissioners, is as
The commission you appointed to take
charge of the interests of Minnesota at
the Pan-American exposition at Buffalo,
from May 1 to Nov. 1, beg leave to sub
mit the following report:
We have visited Buffalo and find the
preparations for the exposition are on a
most gigantic scale. The exposition
grounds are within twenty minutes by
street cars from the heart of the city,
and occupy a space of 350 acres. More
than double the space of the centennial
at Philadelphia in 1876 is occupied by su
perb buildings, and, with the single ex
ception of the world's fair at Chicago,
no exposition this country ever had As
worthy of a moment's consideration as a
comparison. AVhen the doors open en
May 1 the Exposition company will have
expended $10,000,000 in erecting buildings
and in preparation. Only a personal visit
can enable any one to realize the im
mensity of what is in store for the peo
ple of this and foreign .countries during
the present summer.
Of all the states of the Union outside
ot New York, Minnesota, by its lake con
nections, occupies the closest position to
the exposition, as a matter of practical
and pecuniary benefit.
Within a radius of 500 miles from Buf
falo there are 42,000.000 of people, more
than half of the population of the en
tire l 7nited States, and it is no stretch of
the imagination to say that with the
greater prosperity than existed in 1893,
when the panic depressed the country,
the volume of visitors will exceed those
of the world's fair at Chicago.
The fact that the exposition is held in
the most populous section of the United
States, from which we can draw the
young and best blood of the country,
makes an especial reason why Minne
sota should show her advantage's in good
The great population which will large
ly furnish the visitors at the exposition
are consumers, or should be, of Minne
sota products. As a prominent gentle
man of Buffalo said to us, "Minnesota is
the bread and butter state of the Union."
Though the world's fair was greater,
the Pan-American exposition offers a
more important and valuable field for
exploiting the advantages of the state.
Independent of any question of state
pride, there is every reason, as a pure
business proposition, why Minnesota
should present to the millions of the
East, as well as the hundreds of thou
sands from abroad. the advantages
which she offers for the man of busi
ness or the agricultural home-seeker.
While we were late in making our ap
plication for space, the managers of tne
exposition met us more than generous
ly. They recognize the intimate com
mercial relations which exist between
Minnesota and Buffalo, and in their plans
no state in the Union has received great
er consideration, and few as much as
our own. In the agricultural building
1,188 square feet have been reserved for
Minnesota in the very choicest part of
the immense building. In the mines and
mining; and forestry building your com
mission has been able to secure the re
fusal of the very choicest location with
in the structure. In the horticultural
building there will be held for a few
days a well located and commodious
space, ind in the dairy building we have
secured a similar option.
In the live stock department we can
secure^all of the space for housing stock
we need, though the Dominion govern
ment of Canada has asked to have at
least one-half of the entire stable room
set apart for their use. The amphithe
ater for the display of live stock sur
passes 'anything heretofore seen in this
country, not excepting that at the
World's Fair. As Minnesota won the
chief live stock prizes at Chicago in
competition with the world, it goes with
out saying that we have the material
to secure the same results at Buffalo if
we arc enabled, financially, to show
what Minnesota produces.
In the liberal arts building there is
still a moderate space remaining which
can he secured during the next few
days for Minnesota to make an educa
tional display.
The demands for space made upon the
exposition managers are something enor
mous, and it is only because they recog
nize the greatness of Minnesota 'and the
intimate commercial relations, by the
lakes, which exist between us, that we
have been able to have space held in
reserve for us until we can determine
what we will have the means to occupy.
In brief, tho Fan-American exposition
managers do not need a Minnesota dis
play to nil all the space at their dis
posal in a splendid manner, but Minne
sota needs to use the space which we
have been enabled to hold in reserve' to
demonstrate to the world the empire we
really are
In our judgment it is absolutely indis
pensable, if Minnesota is to make a cred
itable display, that, in addition to fill
ing the spaces named, thero should be
a Minnesota state building. We have se
cured, for a few days, one of the choicest
sites in the ground for a state build
ing, ar.d, nased upon what other states
are doing, and consultation with reliable
architects, we are satisfied that not less
than $10,000 should be expended for the
erection of a state building exclusive of
the furnishings, the character and cost
of the furnishings to depend upon the
amount <>f the appropriation.
New York, as was to be expected,
leaus with a state building costing $150,
--000. The New England states unit* in
the erection of a magnificent building.
Ohio, Illinois, Wisconsin, Maryland,
Pennsylvania. Missouri, Michigan. New
Jersey and many other states (in fact
every state which is a consumer of our
products) are erecting buildmsrs eosUr.a
from $10,000 to 5f.0.000, and ii Minnesota is

The attendance at the world's fair
from Minnesota wns 100,000, and with
the more prosperous condition of business,
it is not an exaggeration to a.^ST-mIT
that a much larger number, probably 10
per cent of our entire population, will
visit Buffalo during the exposition. Ot.r
citizens are entitled to find a home there
where they can rendezvous and meet
their thousands of friends and rclitiv.-s
from the Bast, a section of the country
which has sent us the army of men
and women who have made our state
what it is today. To do less would Vie
to stamo Minnesota as an inferior state,
whose inhabitants are «>ntitled to no
more hospitality than was extended to
Noah's dove during the irrigation period
of the world's history.
Independent of a building, the appro
priation of $20,000 already made is en
tirely inadequate for any display worthy
of the state. The Pan-American expo
sition will be at least one-half of the
size of the world's f:iir sin fact, we be
lieve 75 per cent as large), for which
the state appropriated $150,000. Th<; 'ex
hibits must be collected a.t very consid
erable expense. Their proper installa
tion will cost thousands of dollars.
Freight chnrges will, at a very moderate
estimate, cost $5,000. The exhibits must
be eared for, for six or seven months
by reliable employes, a competent super
intendent and clerical force must be so
eurcel—in fact, all of the paraphernalia
of an enormous business enterprise must
be inaugurated for the coming seven
months. A very considerable sum should

In our judgment, the small: appropria

to do anything creditable to the state,
and if your commission should proceed
under its present limitations,) no citizen
of Minnesota would visit Buffalo during
the exposition without feeling positively
ashamed of his commonwealth.

to be able to close by wire, as the time
