Covered with grime and cobwebs, yet
still retaining that prismatic?- beauty
which called forth the admiration of
thousands, there lie at the People's Stor
age company, on Wabasha sj£get, three
sheets of decorative glass that have a
history and are at present- AJMk-.center
piece of a controvery that promises an
interesting finish. -■>■...».
Made in ISO 2 by Brown, Hayward &
Co., then art glassmakers of St. Paul,
the sheets, three in ail. filled a promi
nent place in the Minnesota building at
the world's fair at Chicago, their pres
ence in the large dome of the building
furnishing light to the Interior of one
of the prettiest structures on the ground
and forming an almost speaking adver
tisement for an industry then credited
only to the artisans of the old world.
Beautiful in color, and each sheet leaded
with prismatic designs emblematic of
the new world and the North Star state,
this display was one of the attractions
of the building, and during its exist
ence shed its soft and sparkling rays on
thousands who halted in their tour of
sight-seeing to admire them.
Today, their glory obscured by the dust,
and their beautiful designs tYie hiding
place for a family of spiders whose web
by travels have encompassed them with
strands of silk, they lie in the dark
recesses of a storage house em Wabasha
street awaiting the edict of the law that
will announce them confiscated for debt.
They have played their part; no one
wants them; even sentiment refuses to
stop in and give them back their former
The three sheets have been in hiding
so long that their existence had almcst
been forgotten, until they were removed
the other day and placed in the sales
room of the People's Storage company,
with the sign "P^or Sale" attached. .Their
piesence amid the chaos of anc ent
household wreckage caught the eye of
moro than one antiquarian, and this
started an investigation that promises to
bring them forth from the obscurity in
which they have lain so long.
INTENDED FOR NEW CAPITOI*
According to Manager Howard, of the
People's Storage company, the three
sheets of leaded glass were received at
the storage room in 1894. they being sent
to St. Pa ul as a portion of the wreck
age after the removal of the buildings
at the close of the exposition. It was
the intention to use them in the new
capitol building, and it was for that pur
pose they were preserved. In some man
ner, however, their existence was for
gotten, and when the attention of the
architect. Cass Gilbert, was. called to
them, he pronounced them worthless, as
no provision had been made in the plans
for their use.
Bills for the accumulated storage
have been sent to the various governors
who have occupied the executive chair
since the fair closed, but each refused to
pay the amount. One of them investi
gated the matter, but finding that the
capitol commissioners did not want the
glass, advised the company to sell it.
Acting under these instructions the
three pieces- of glass were set up in the
sales room, but prospective purchasers
have been few, and the designs will be
confiscated, under authority of the law
in a few weeks, if ithe bill is not paid!
Mr. Howard says that Oov. Van Sant
was included among the recipients of
biAs for storage, but he also has given
the matter no attention.
In size the sheets of glass are twelve
feet high and five feet wide, each prism
or color forming the design being leaded
by hand. The original cost of the work
was $1.50 a foot, and the whole can now
be purchased for 1300/ That is the price
placed upon them by the storage com
pany. The storage bill, Mr. Howard
says, amounts to about $67. He is under
the impression that it was presented to
the capitol commission to'~be used in the
KNEW NOTHINC4 OF THEM.
Mr. Canning S«abury, the St: Paul
member of the capitol commission, de
nied this statement. Speaking yesterday
of the matter he said their attention
was called to the glass by the Peoples'
Storage company who evidently desired
to get what money was coming to them
by reason of storage. Prior to that
they had no knowledge of the existence
of the designs. They were then inspected
by Mr. Gilbert, the architect, who was
only permitted to do so after a threat
that he would pass the entire matter
by, and lie pronounced them worthless
for use in the capitol, saying that the
plans Would have to be altered entirely
if a place was to bo provided for them
Since that no further attention has been
Got. Lind. who also* remembers them
by reason of a frequency of bills for stor*
age, says he passed the matter over to
Mr. Gilbert for investigation, but he
pronounced them of no use and not
worth the storage, at that time some
fifty odd dollars. Again he could find
nothing to show that the state was
responsible for their being there, and ac
cordingly declined to pay the bill.
Gov. Van Sanit, when apprised of the
fact last night that he had been tho
recipient of several bills for storage
from the Peoples' Storage company, said
that it was news to him. They might
have been received, however, but he had
no knowledge of the fact. He was also
unaware that the state owned such a
thing as a piece of decorative glass.
He will look into the matter today.
With the passing of years the exist
ence of the glass seems to have been
unknown, but a number of people im
bued with the sentiment that surrounds
this almost forgotten relic of Minnesota"a
part in the grratest industrial exposition
the world has ever known, are making
an effort to reclaim it, and steps will In
all probability be taken to have the
state pay the storage, and use the gla=s
in some r.-anner. It is contended that in
view of the fact Ithat another million
dollars has been set aside for the further
completion and beautifying of the state
capitol. some provision can surely bQ
made for the incorporation of the three
pieces of glass into the now building.
That the glass has a value, apart from
the sentiment that surrounds is, is shown
by the fadt that parties representing
the S. E. Clson department store of
Minneapolis, have been in St. Paul with
a view of purchasing it for U3e in the
ornamental entrance that will decorate
the :>uilding on the Nlcallet avenue side.
The glass is now on exhibition in the
storage rooms on Wabasha street, and
can be seen from the JMghth street

TEIED TO TAKE STORE.
Bnrglars TaJke Horse and AVagon to
Clnrry-Th^tr; X«d« t.
The tailor shop of Hermann Gall &
Son, at 372 Jackson street, was entered
by burglars shortly before 1 o'clock yes
terday morning anil eSght bolts of cloth
stolen. Four of the bdlts were recovered
a few minutes la|gr. 11
The burglars evJoeiftly intended to take
everything in sight, for before proceed
ing to the store they had appropriated a
horse and bill-posting wagon owned by
L. N. Scott, which wa(S standing in front
of the Metropolitan opera house. The
burglars deliberately got into the wagon
and drove to the tailor shop, stepp ng
directly in front of it. The bolts on the
door had not been fastened, and it took
but a moment to force the locks. Arriv
riving on the inside they seized all the
cloth om tho nearest table and loaded it,
on the wagon. Just as they had accom
plished this they perceived Officer Barney
Smith and Special Officer Gibbons com
ing up the street, and jumping on the
wagon they lashed up the horse and
drove away with the officers in hot pur
suit. They turned around the corner of
Sixth street, and into the alley behind the
tailor shop, where, tn some way, the
wagon upset and the> horse was thrown
to the ground. The burglars seeing noth
ing else to do., grabbed what they could
and made their escape.
When the officers arrived the horse
was lying on the ground, with its feet
in the air, four bolts of cloth were found
scattered on the ground. Mr. Gall claims
that there are still four bolts of doth

STRIKE MAY FOLLOW REFUSAL
Building Trade* Council : Uke!>
to Become : Involved
If There I* An,y
About two hundred members of the
Painters' union met yesterday afternoon,
in Assembly hall and decided not to work.
for any of the firms of the Master Paint
ers' association until the "agreement"
papers, drawn up some three weeks ago
are signed. This means that in the near
future the lockout of the painters, which
has existed ever since the middle of last
December, will come to an end, or that
a big strike will be inaugurated in
which all the crafts in the Building
Trades council will have a hand
The painltea-s, judging from their atti
tude yesterday, are determined to gain
their point, and will stick to the last
ditch to get it.
The pairaters allege that as long ago
as last December, they wore ordered to
report on a certain day as non-union
men. This the members cf the union re
fused to do, and most of them lost their
situations in consequence. The lirst
difficulty led on to others. The Master
Painters' association was dissatisfied
with the system of making small con
tractors honorary members, and no sooner
was this adjusted than complaints wera
made about other little things, the out
come of which was an order to the
Painters' union to draw out of the Build
ing Trades council.
The members of ithe Painters' union
alleged yesterday that this, in broad
terms, was merely a preliminary step
toward a plan to break up the Building
Trades council. In # support of this they
added that certain members of the
Master Painters' association refused to
take a hand in the troubles, because they
saw that they were on tho wrong side of
the fence, and they felt that right is
right wherever It exists. It is under
stood that these members have with
drawn from the association.
UP TO TFLE MASTER PAINTERS.
j From the above facts It can be seen
| that the lookout has now reached a point
| where everything: depends on the future
| action of the Master Painters. Ever since
the trouble began, the members of the
uni-on say they have done everything in
their power to adjust matters amicatbly.
At the meeting of the Master Painters'
association, held some time ago, a com
! mittee of painters tried to gain adm.:t
--| tance but, according to statements made
j in Assembly hall yesterday, their dele
gates have been practically ignored. Time
and again, committees 'have tried to se
cure a conference with the memibers of
the association, but all their overtures,
they assert, have been turned do-wn, and
every attempt they have mad© to adjust
the trouble has resulted m failure. The
only ray of hope that the strained re
lations existing between the painters and
the association will soon be ended 1.e3
in the assertion made yesterday that sev
eral of the master painters have signified
a willingness to sign the agreement, pro
viding other members of the associa
tion will do the same.
During the time that the lockout 'has
existed, the master painters- have been
able to secure enough non-union men, and
those who have deserted the union, to do
all the work that came to them. The busy-
season is now opening, and the painters
are confident that unless the association
makes terms its members will not be
able to handle the>woik. Fc*r this reason
they think that a settlement" will be. ef
fected within the present week, and they
say tihey would be surprised if trouble
should follow. There is no disagreement
over wages or hours, but simply over the
matters mentioned above.
Among the painters with Whom a re
porter of the Globe talked at the con
clusion of the meeting, the concensus
of opinion was that there would be no
further trouble. This view was alro
shared by A. G. Bainbridge, fi.rst vice
.president of the National Brotherhood e>f
Painters, Decorators and Paper Hangers,
"who lives at Minneapolis, and Who was
present at the meeting as presiding

It la evident that building: operations
In Minneapolis are to be hampered this
spring by a lockout in which the Build
ing Trades council and the Master Build
ers' association, representing a>bout half
the contra-ctars in the city, are involved.
Both sides are determined and the fight
will be to a finish. The points at issue re
late to the use of fixtures bearing the
woodworkers' label and the employment
by contractors of union foremen.
L. T. B!akefied, business agent of the
Carpenters' union, claims that the ftglit
will not lasit longer than a week, but the
contractors claim that they wiii keep it
up all summer if necessary. T.he Master
Builders discharged 2;5 union men Satur
day night and a number of large jobs. In
cluding the new Chamber of Commerce
building, are tied up by the lockout. The
Building Trades council haa retaliated by
ordering all of the fifteen unions repre
sented in the council to take their men
off the jobs contracted for by mem-bers
of the Master Builders' association. The
order goes into effect this m-orning. Mott
of the work en dwellings will not be in
terfered with, 'but majiy of the large con
tracts cannot be worked. The contractors
intend to import non-union meeha.nl s
from the country.

NEW METHOD OF MASKING
Lessons to Bog-In Week Lrfiter
in Fall and. End \ Week:
Earlier in the
The faculty of the College of Science
and Literature and Art at the university
have decided on some of the less import
ant changes which will arise In connec
tion with the adoption of the semester
system next year. Various matters
w hleh are in the jurisdiction of the board
of resents, but In which recommenda-
tions of the l'aculty have considerable
weight, have been taken up, and it will
be unanimously recommended that the
university begin one week later in the
fall and close one week earlier in the
spring. This will make the first semester
include four weeks' work aTter theCnn&t
mas vacation, and the second semester
will open Feb. 6. It was also recom
mended that the incidental fees be
equally divided between th« two terms,
and that requirements for entrance to
the civic and scientific courses remain
the same as aft present.
The faculty also decided to do away
with "incompletes." In the future all
work not completed will be marked
either "condition" or "future," and can
be removed only by the rules regulating
the removal of these works. No student,
who is unable to carry successfully the
regular work of the freshman and soph
omore years, will be allowed to carry
extra work in the junior and senior
years, unless exceptions are made in
special cases after an investigation bytne
"condition" committee. Students wish.
ir.g to take eftctra work must give two
weeks' notice. Freshmen and sopho
mores who receive a condition or fail
ure in the work of :the first semester s>
as to make it impossible for them to con
tinue the same line of work, will not bo
allowed to elect a junior or senior
subject in place of the subject omitted,
but will bo. required, .to devote their full
time to the remaining subjects of the
course. This rule is not operative with
those students who obtain a grade of ai
In order to give conditional Students
every opportunity to make up their work
before entering under the new system
next fall, examinations in freshman and
sophomore subjects will be given May
I" and May 20.
The question of changing the whole
system of marking was considered, but
no action was taken and the mattar
was left over until the meeting of the
faculty next Saturday. Three plans were
suggested: one. to make 50 the passing
mark and retain the flgnre marking a,<*
at present. Prof. Slgerfoos recom
mended tha± the whole system of marks
be done away with and a student be
given either "pass' "condition" or "fail
ure." The third plan suggested was to
make the marks A, B, C. D, E; A, B ami
C to be different grades above passing.
D, a '•condition," and E, a "failure."
The "pass." "condition" or "failure"
system will probably be the one to meet
The change would be an excellent one
from many standpoints. Vnder the pres
ent way of grading there are a grvat
many students who work for marks du/r
--insr the whole four years, and are kept
out of the honorary fraternities by a frac
tion of a per cent. The system of grad.
ing is generally regarded as unfair. Jt
if also the general sentiment amonar
students, aside from any element of un
fairness, that the honorary societies, on
the whole, do not represent the broadest
culture of the university.

CONFERENCE ON TAXATION,
Dele«nte« to the Buffalo Convention
CHICAGO, April 14.—The 'governors ol
the various states are beginning to an
nounce their appointments of delegate*
to attend the conference on taxation
called to meet at Buffalo, N. V., May
22 and 24, 1901, by the national civic fed
eration. At the headquartera in Chicago
notice of the appointment of the dele
gates has been received from Govs. Dock
ery, of Missouri; j Hill, of Maine; Longl
no, of Mississdppi, and Taole, of Mon
tana. ' ■;.
The call for the conference is signed
by leading economists, tax experts and
public men representing all portions of
the country and all interests. The letter
of invitation is as follows:
. "For- many decades the states have
been building up independent systems of
taxation, without reference to each other
until now .we have a state "of affairs
bordering on chaos, where each state Is
practically fighting nearly every- other
state. : Some property is taxed three or
lour times, while other property Is not
taxed at all. Corporate g activity has
largely changed th«^ character of indi
vidual investments, Industry; has over
stepped the boundaries of any one state,
and commercial Interests are no longer
confined to mere local limits. This con
ference will be the first attempt in this
country to work out some uniform prin
ciples. It is not expected to settle any of
the problems in the two days' discussion,
but will be a -beginning and may result
in the appointment of a permanent com
mission to work out some-basis for fu
ture action." ' "■■'■_ •■'■
