FINISHING TOUCHES GIVEN TO
NEW U'MOX LAST NIGHT.
While the machinists' strike, now on
in many of the big cKies of the United
States, has so far failed to engulf St.
Paul in its capacious maw, yet trouble
is brewing, and it Is only a question of
time when the local bosses will have to
confront a demand that is now being
made at other places.
At Assembly hall last night the finish
ing touches were given to the organiza
tion of a union of shop machinists, the
call for signers being answered in a
manner that was more than gratifying
to the organizers present, the majority
of whom were from Minneapolis, where
a strike ia now on.
In all 150 attached their names to the
charter roll, and these in turn were,
furnished with credentials authorizing
them to go among the shops and gather
up the stragglers. Apprentices also
were taken In, the idea being to enroll
every machinist in the city under the
banner of unionism.
The absence of a charter forbid any
mention of a strike officially, but the dis
cussion was sufficient to show that the
men would make demands when the or
ganization became sufficiently strong for
such. It will be for a fixed seals and a
Special efforts are being made to bring
the plant of the American Hoist and
Derrick works, on the West side, in line,

of 150 machinists. At the meeting last
night it was reported that the company
had posted conspicuously in their works
placards containing information to the
effect that all men who kept aloof from
the new organization and did mt strike
would be taken care of in a substantial
One thing characteristic of the meeting
last night, at which fuily 200 machinists
were present, was the absence of any
thing menacing. The general desire was
to bring about the desired results peace
fully, if possible, the opinion prevailing
that time would have to intervene te
fore tho situation could be brought fully
before the bosses. The election of of

A bright future confronts Hamline uni
versity. Through the beneficence of
James J. Hill, of St. Paul, and Hon. N.
G. Norton, of Winona, the institution has
substantially entered upon a campaign
of expansion which, when completed, will
give it a financial strength that will en
able it to proceed along lines of the most
progressive character and, do so without
a feeling on the part of the author Hies
that the extension of its field means de^
privation in other ways and the use of
means that ought to be devoted to other
In short Hamline is to have a pure en
dowment of $250,0C0. The plans laid for
securing this amount of reserve money
ft*Qy warrant the very sanguine spirit
vrtiich can be plainly observr-d around the
institution at present. No idle theories
or unlikely fancies are being depended on
for the successful execution of the plans
but the latest approved business methods
art) bt-insj adhered to. Of course, it is a
large amount of money to be raised in
just the manner that Hamline proposes
to raise it. but nearly half the amount is
now in ham' and the remainder will not
bt; as difficult to get as the first has been.
Some months ago President Brklgman. i
of Hamline university, set out to raise
$250,000 as an endowment find for his in
stitution. Friends doubted ills success
and sympathetic associates shuddered at
the undertaking, lest failure would Le the
result. Dr. Bridgman said it -would come.
Tne university needed it and its frier.d.-;
had it. An indomitable will and undaunt
ed persistency were two of the prices at
which this large sum could be obtained
and the determined president had both
of these. Dr. Bridgman would allow
nothing to stand in the way of his plans
and has all along been serenely conndent
that the legacy would com«.
Soon a-fter conceiving tho idea Dr.
Bridgman called upon President Hill and
Mr. Norton, to both of whom he outlliitd
his plans. The immediate result was that
Mr. Hill pledged jfaO.COO, a fifth of the full
amount which President Bridgman want
ed to raise, and Mr. Norton subscribed
&O.COO, conditioned upon the president's
being able to raise the whole amount.
Tnls gave encouragement to the ertcr
prising president of Hamline and new im
petus to tl'.e undertaking. His friends
were appraised of his quick success and
everyone turned his "shoulder to the
wheel," saying the result would come.
The faith which had characterized Presi
dent Bridgman at the outset now took
hold of the friends of the institution.
Having received the pledge of support
from Messrs. Hill and Norton, President
Bridgman decided that it would be best
to raise the $250,000 in Installments, as
it were. He determined, therefore, to se
cure $100,000 first, and returned with a
new idea to the original benefactors,
Messrs. Hill and Norton. His plans we»e
acceptable, and both President Hill and
Mr. Norton agreed to pay onr-half of
their pledges as soon as $100,000 had been
Thus President Bridgman had $40,000
from these two gentlemen as a starter
on the first $100,000. Now that sum <13
complete. Yesterday President Bridgman
called again upon Mr. Hill, and communi
cated with Mr. Norton, informing each
that he ;had succeeded in raising the bal
ance of the first $100,000, and was prompt
ly advised that their checks would be
forthcoming whenever he requested it.
The $100,000 that has been pledged will be
placed on interest as soon as it can be
collected, so that by the time the re
mainder of the endowment is in hand,
there will be some substantial Income
from the first installment.
The unusual success which has attend
ed the efforts of President Bridgman in
accumulating the first $100,C-CO, and the
wise disposition he is to make of that
portion of the fund, will be a great
source of encouragment for the friends
of the institution, upon wnom now de
volve tlie responsibility of raising the re
mainder of the endowment. There is not
the slightest apprehension as to the at
titude of the friends of the school, and
President Bridgman hopes to be able
to report within a comparatively short
time that the final dollar in the entire
endowment has been collected.
When this sum is all in it will be placed
to the credit of Hamline as a purely
j endowment fund, the income of which
I will be devoted from time to time to the
j support of the institution, and not a
j cent of it will be used for purposes
I which should be met from any oth-.r
As Hamline institution Is practically
out of debt, the income from this liberal
endowment will enable it to accomplish
a great deal of work which its friends
have so earnestly desired in the past,
but which they were barred from under
taking owing to a lack of means. Presi
dent Hill came to the aid of the institu
tion three years ago with a gift of $20,
--000, which enabled the university to re
move the mortgage of $36,000, which had
hung over it for a number of years, and
depressed its ambitious and enterprising
promoters. It has required the hardest
kind of work on the part of President
Bridgman and those associated witi him
in this commendable undertaking, and
the result- means more to them than
those who have not been identified with
the scheme can realize.

from Washington that I.SCO factories had

General President George W. Perkins,
of the Clgarmakers' International union,
reports: "For the first time in the his
tory of «our union the annual money
transactions has amounted to over $1,
--000,000, and, while this enormous amount
passed through the hands of a multitude
of local officers, it is a matter of pride
and satisfaction to be able to say that
not over $200 was lost through the short
comings of the financial officers. Th:s
fine record is a towering monument to
the honesty of the officers and once more
demonstrates the efficacy of our system
and the possibilities of the trade union
movement. We especially call the at
tention of other unions, some of whom
have hesitated to adopt our system to
this fact. One of the mare striking fea
tures of the report is that, despite the
fact that a great many more are now
entitled to the full death benefit of $55),
we paid out about $702 less for death
benefits than we did the year previous.
There was an increase of' $10,000 in the
aick benefit, and a decrease of $4,100 In

amount of $137,823 paid out for strike
benefits was the largest ever exp. nd. d
for that purpose in any previous >ear,
with the single exception of 1884, when
during the great Cincinnati strike, we
exceeded that amount by about $3/00.
This shows an increase in that ben\ fit
over the year of 1599 of $125,401.6). The
increase in the funds was about $22,3~8,
which, in view of the enormous extra
amounts expended for strike benefit,
was remarkable and is a source of jus
tifiable pride. An organization that, af
ter, paying $137,823.23 in addition to the
payment of $272,881.97 for other b«?nefi 3,
can show an increase of $22,395.29 in it.s
