The interest in the coming Minnesota
state fair, to be held Sept. 2-7,. is being
made manifest by the applications that
come daily to Secretary Randall for pre
mium lists. Almost every state in the.
Union is represented by these applpicants,
many of whom will become visitors or
exhibitors during the fair.
km<!i have become thoroughly
ii i.i the Inducements that will be
held out by the Minnesota exposition this
year, and many of them are laying tluir
plans I" come here. The importance ot
the coming live .stock exhibit has bees
emphasized by the co-operation of the
America i Hereford Breeders' association,
and the American Shorthorn Bre<
ich of which will hold their
next national exhibits and sales as a part
"l the Minnesota state lair.
■>' th( i i >vi> national or
ganizations with their splendid displays
of blooded cattle is a sufficient induce
ment in Itself t<i urge the attendance of
stockmen and breeders. Their exhibits
are made up of the finest broil animals
. y tan produce. The Aberdeen
Angus association will join hands with
the state fair officials to the extent of
offering sp< cial prizes to meritorious an
imals of that strain. A number of
smaller associations will also be.repre
The Increased live stock exhibit, while
it is marked by national prominence, has
no more liberal Inducement than has been
extended to oth< r departments. The suc
cess .'I" the fair of 1200, which broke all
ding records, has enabled the man
agemi nt to formulate its plans on an
even more ambitious scale. This liber
will !>.• manifest In every depart
ment for which exhibits ar,> asked. The
agricultural exhibit will have a horns
of Its own. for the first time sinci Rie
fair was given a permanent location.
Th<> horses, sheep and swine will have
additional accommodations, and an ad
ditional barn will be built for the care
of horses entered in races during- the
week. The quarters of the machinery
exhibit, partially destroyed by fire. Will
be restored. Additional seating capac
ity will b<- given around the race track,
and the grounds will be .supplied with a
waterworks system, assuring an abund
ance of pure, cold water at all times, be
sides providing additional lire protection
Amusement features of the fair will
be more numerous and novel than ever
before. The night programme will ron
template In addition to the usual Pain's
Breworks, a series of chariot and Roman
standing races, a number of acrobatic
and two running races. The lines
that have been drawn permit the fair to
be bigger and better than ever before,
and t<> hold out additional Inducement
both to the visitor and the exhibitor.

iiawry Remains as Nominal Head of
the Company, Itut C. G. (>uud
rich and W. J. Hield
Both Retire.
According to reports which became cur
rent yesterday Thomas Lowry has allow
ed the control of the Twin City Rapid
Transit company to pass from him to
Toronto capitalists. Mr. i^owry was ques
tioned as to the retlfibfllty of the report,
but denied it, saying that he had not
sold a single share of the stock.
The story was a most circumstantial
(.no and did not only give details of the
transaction, but mentioned the. names of
some of the officials who are to retire.
Among these were Vice President C. G.
Goodrich and General Manager Hield.
The story stated Uiat Mr. Lowry would
continue to act n.s the nominal head of
the company, but would actually have
little connection with it, devoting V.:e
most of his time to his interests in the
Soo railroad, of which he is president.
While Mr. Lowry denies the report,
there arc many prominent business men
of this city who have been familiar with
the fact that for two months or more
this deal was j.ending and negotiations
for the sale of .<to:-k were bti g mad=.
In fact, just after Mr. Lowry's r_turn
from the Kasl last winter a. re} ort of
this character became current in £-t.
Paul, and the president was then asksd
about the raatUr and made tha same
d< sial. At that time it was insisted upon
by certain men who claimed to have
more, than a superficial knowledge of af
fairs that the deal was Leing engineered.
It is said that the improvements in fie
street car lines in St. Paul were apart
of the stipulations made when the tran -
action was consummated. These improve
ments, it is said, were to be completed
before the property changed hands.
The purchase of the property has ben
brought about under the direction of
Montreal bunkers, who have acted as the
agents of the new nwn;rs. Mr. Lowry
is said to have gather&d up a very con
siderable s'.iin by the deal.
As stated. Vice President Goodrich is
to retire ns is also W. J. Hield, general
manager. The former, it is reported, is
planning a trip to Europe, which was de
cided upon in anticipation of the trans
action . ,Zi
It is hardly probable that the Diamond
Jo packet Dubuque, which recently sunk
in the lower river, will again be seen at
the St. Paul wharf, this season at least.
The boat is still resting on the muddy
bottom of the river, but her owners hope
to have the craft afloat this week.
Owing to the jagged hole in her bot
tom, the problem of bulkheadlng was a
difficult one. Her immense weight caused
her to sink rapidly into the soft bottom
of the river, and in order to lessen this
danger hundreds of bags of sand were
used. A cargo of oats in the boat's hold
was also pressed into service.
Maj. Townsend, the autocrat of the
upper river, whose official headquarters
are at Rock Island, is credited with
many of the recent, disasters suffered by
boats this season. Old rivermen say he
will not accept advice from men who
have traveled the river for years, but
does as he thinks best. One of the com
plaints is that he causes overhanging
trees to be cut off close to the stump,
leaving the latter to later drop into the
river and sink in the channel. Rivermen
say the trees along the bank should be
taken out entire or left alone, for then
when it foil its presence would be notice
able. It was a snag in the shape of a
sunken treo trunk that caused the sink
ing of the Dubuque.
The Diamond Jo company now has in
commission the Quincy, the Sidney and
the St. Paul, and the latter in all"prob
ability will be the next to visit St. Paul
if lower water does not prevent. The
Quincy. after taking on a lot of flour
and miscellaneous freight, left for down
river ports Saturday at midnight. The
Quincy since her appearance in St. Paul
a year ago has undergone considerable
change. Her "Texas," which occupies
that part of the boat known to the in
matod as the hurricane deck, has been
enlarged to the extent of accommodating
nearly 100 extra passengers. The berths
are now in possession of a force of paint
ers. The Quincy is the largest boat
n float on the upper Mississippi and can
accommodate 350 passengers.
Chief O'Connor yesterday appointed 135
special policemen, who are to serve dur
ing the Woodmen convention. In addi
tion twenty detectives from other cities
have been engaged, most of them arriv
ed in the city yesterday. Those ap
pointed to special duty are expected to

cost at $14,000. Sandstone and pressed
brick 'will enter largely into its exterior
This same architect has under consid

rich. It will cost $5,000.
Mrs. T. J. McCarty will erect on Sum
mit avenue a modern frame dwelling

with alf modern improvements.
On Grand avenue F. W. Rarr.s-y will

Thirty Families of St. I'aul Pool
Theilr Young American and
Form a Colony for
the Summer.
Within the next two weeks a miniature
republic will be started on the banks of
a little stream near Dodge Center, and
the operations of those in the new un
dertaking will be watched with more than
ordinary interest. The republic will be
organized on similar lines to the "George
Junior Republic," which, in operation,
attracted attention all over the country.
It is always a question with parents what
to do with their school- boys during vaca
tion time. They want to keep them away
from the streets, and at the same time
are anxious that they enjoy themselves
and learn something while doing it.
About thirty families in St. Paul hay«
solved this difficult problem, and, now
that the school days are over, they will
send their boys to the republic at Dodge
Center. The boys will be taken from
some of the best families in St. Paul, and
they will make their own money, have
their own council, mayor and other offi
cers, and do all work and make contracts
the same as is done in any city.
This will be great fun for the boys and
they will be learning something at the
same time. An old Baptist school will be
the city hall, and near this are eight or
ten cottages which will house the litUe
men. Charles L. Bingham will have
charge of the colony, and besides him,
there will be a botanist, who has not as
yet been selected; a naturalist, a geolo
gist and, perhaps, one or two university
professors. On arriving at the scene of
operations the first thing in order will be
to elect a mayor, a chief "of police, a
treasurer and the other officers that have
to do with city government. This done
the real work will commence. Contracts
for drainage, the building of pathways
and improvements of all kinds (these
must necessarily be limited for lack o f
material) will be let to the lowest bidder
and the man who bids must first draw
up his plans and make his estimates, as
any real contractor would do. All work
must be paid for by the tin coin of the
realm, or; more properly, the republic
which will be scaled the same as the real
money of the country.
It is now a matter of great speculation
as to whether or not the youngsters will
develop any shrewdness when the elec
tion comes off. Some of them may do a
few political "stunts" that will open the
eyes of the people. Gross errors or un
turhanded trickery will not be tolerated
It will be all right to have political belief
but there must be "clean politics"" in the
camp. If any man (they will all be called
men) gets surprisingly rich and the city
officials cannot account for it the grand
jury will get busy and something will
happen, or else the police department will
have an opportunity of doing something
Of course the boy with the most com-
SJ^^Personality will be the police
chief. If any person in the republic
shirks his work, woe to him, for he will
be made to do hard labor as long as the
judge on the bench sees fit. It win be
real hard labor, too. It would lake a
win h°n *nUmerate all the things the boys
will have an opportunity of doing.

Extends Greeting* of :'the': Mother
Church to- St. Paul Brethren— T
"... '.. Leaves for His* Native
Country. .-
The Rev. Dr. Gustaf Floden, chaplain
to the king of Sweden, and rector of
Lindberg's parish, in the diocese of
Gothenberg, Sweden, celebrated the com
munion and preached the; morning ser
mon at St. Sigfrid's Episcopal church,
corner of Eighth~= and Locust streets,
yesterday. He was assisted by Rev., J.
V. Alfvegren, rector of St. Signal's
church. The church was filled to the
doors with people anxious to hear this
distinguished gentleman. Dr. Floden
wore the robes that are worn. in Sweden
during the service, and preached a mas
terly sermon in his native tongue. He
chose for his theme, "The condition of
the soul between death and resurrec
tion," and took the story of the rich man
and Lazarus to illustrate his sermon. Dr
Floden spoke of the uncertainty of the
material belongings as illustrated by the
rich man, and, on the other hand, the
certainty of character: .
Dr. Floden said in part:
"Love thy neighbor as thyself. Love
is the only power that is able to build up
Christ-like characters. Riches are a gift
not evil in themselves, but they may be
made so by misuse or abuse. We should
not misuse the good things that God
has given us. He gives us more and
more, according to our character.
"But what are riches compared with
the gifts that God has given us? The
wages of sin may not be punished in this
life, but they certainly will in the life
to come. We cannot take our riches or
worldy belongings with us. If -we, like
Lazarus, put our faith in God, He will
open up a new world to us.
"A Christian life makes man better,
lifts him up and helps him" to see far
ther ahead. He who will not open up
his.heart to God, how is he to expect to
be able to enter the kingdom of God?
"How happy we will feel, when, on our
death bed we know that we have our
peace with God, and that he will take as
to a better place. . No matter how many
worldly belongings you have, when
death's angel comes, you cannot take
them with you. To be a true Christian
you should spread light, peace and love
in your homes.
"To be happy and not make happy is
not leading a Christian life, and may
we therefore see to it that we do the
work God wants us to do while the day
is here, for the night will come when no
man can work." :nt.-
After the regular service was
over Dr. Floden, in a few well chosen
words, delivered a greeting from the
church of Sweden, in which he stated
that the church of Sweden and the
church here were about the same, hav
ing the same polity, and being governed
by bishops of the same faith. In clO3,
ing the doctor asked his congregation
not to forget their fatherland, to live a
Christian life, as it should be lived, and
concluded by saying that he hoped the.
near future would bring about a better
understanding between- the two sister
churches of this country and Sweden.
Dr. Floden left over the North-Western
for New York at 6:45 last evening, and
was escorted to the train by a number
of prominent Swedish people, who wish
ed him God speed. He will stay a few
days in New York, but expects to reach
his native country by July 1. He is In
the United States to study up church
matters among the Swedish people in
this country. He stated yesterday af
ternoon that he was very much pleased
with his visit. He also said that he
wished to thank his many kind friends
for the warm greeting they had accorded
him. He arrived here last Thursday
from Winona, and was the guest of Mr.
and Mrs. A. T. Rosen, 331 Cherokee ave
nue, while in the city.
The general committee of arrangements
for the Bishop Cretin memorial celebra
tion will meet tonight at Cretin hall. The
separate committees, which has bean
busily at work since the "last meeting, v.ill
make their reports to the general com
mittees at that time and further discus
sion, upon a more definite and satisfac
tory basis, of the plans for the exercisos
to take place July 2 and 3 will be entered
The committee on invitation has at nt
out special calls to all their various or
ganizations which are e'esired to partic
ipate In the occasion, and from the most
of these they have received answers.
These facts will be.reported tonight. Alt
the committees have progressed well with
their work.
It is possible that Bishop Cotter, of
Winona, will be unable to take part in
the ceremonies attending this important
occasion. He is very ill at his home in
Winona, and for several days last week
his life was despaired of. His condition
now is somewhat improved, however.
Bishop Cotter was to have taken a
prominent part in the celebration of the
high imass at the seminary grounds, and
his illness may necessitate a change In
the plans.
A man giving the name of H. Smith j
was taken to the St. Joseph's hospital j
from the International. hotel at Seventh j
I and Jackson streets early yesterday fore- j
! noon suffering from an overdose of lauda- •
| num. When the man was discovered he I
j appeared very sleepy and Dr. E. H. j
j Whitcomb was called to attend him and j
; had him sent to the hospital, where it !
j was reported last night that he was be- j
I ing rapidly restored. -■ -
It is understood that the man had !
; been under the influence of liquors. He j
I was unable to sleep and took a dose of \
i the laudanum to induce sleep. The doc- j
| tors and others were satisfied that there {
j was no suicidal Intent on Smith's part.
He stated himself that suffering from the
loss of sleep was the only cause for his
taking the laudanum.

Gen. C. C. Andrews Gives His Views
Upon the Proposed Consolida
tion—Burr Street People
Will Act.
Citizens of St. Paul. in the vicinity of
the Cleveland high school are determined
to investigate the proposition of the
school board to transfer the high school
department to the central building next
fall. As already announced in the
Glob c the J members of the board, or
most of them, are of the opinion that
there are too few pupils at the school in
the higher department to conduct it prop
erly. Besides this, they think that about
$3,000 could be saved yearly to the city if
the school were moved to the central.
People of the East side want to know
the reasons for the change, for, from
their point of view, there are reasons
why no change should bo made. J. W.
Griggs, of Burr street, president of t!:e
liurr Street Improvement association, was
seen last night relative to the m.iticr
and said:
"I, as yet, have reached no determina
tion as to what ought to be done, but If
the school board is going to make tre
change I want to know why, and every
one else in the district does. For this
reason a meeting of the association, of
which 1 am one of the officers, wfll b.^
held tomorrow night to consider it. There
arc many things to take into considera
tion. First, will the change be a saving?
Such a change was made in 3591-L', but
the old system was readopted in 1893.
Second, there is the question of car fare
for the students. There is a distance of
two miles and one-haif between the two
schools. Third, will the change benefit
the pupils? We want to know ail about
these things. Just now I think that tho
change ought not to be made, but, after
investigation, I may change my mind."
There are any number of others who
think that the matter ought to be in
vestigated, among them being Gen. C. C.
Andrews, state fire warden, and Dr. A.
W. Whitney. Principal S. A. Farns
worth, of the Cleveland school, w?s seen
last night, but, in view of the fact that
he holds the position he does, he thought
it would be improper to express himself
on the matter. It was learned, however,
from interviews with parents who have
children going to the school and from
other sources that investigation oiay
show that there would be no saving in
the change. It is a question whether or
not $3,000 will be saved to the school
board. The school for four years got $4?0
as its share of the state apportionment
in 1900-1901 it got $700. whore it should
have had $800, and for the next yea- it
will get $1,000, with the $100 deficit from
last year, making $1,100. In the year 1801,
when the experiment of consolidating the
schools was tried, all of the old teachers
were kept, and it is the plan to kep
them this year if the schools are exp. i i
mented with again.
Furthermore, this state apport:onm_nt
| will be lost. Under these circumstances
I it now seems to the people in the Cleve
j land school district that there would be
j no saving. Pupils in the high school there
now have the banefit of teachii-g dur-
I ing six periods of forty minutes each
j every day, while in the other high schools
the pupils have only five-. This is be
cause there are fewer pupils. Then there
is the distance, and it is asserted that
$20 will be spent by each pupil for car
fare every year.
The Cleveland people al<ro assert that
some years ago the boundary line was
taken away between the Cleveland and
the Central high schools. This, they say
redounds to the benefit of the Cen rai
high school bacause students want to go
to the biggest school and "be in with
the crowd." The school would have a
larger attendance if it were not for this
fact. Then there is another thing to take
into consideration. Because of the state
apportionment the school has been ena
bled to secure a good library valued at
$3,000. It also has two complete labora
tories, chemical and biological. Why, th«
East siders say, should the g;od work
of the school be stopped and the results
of past work be thrown away. They
■want to know the whole situation and
•will not stop until they find out. Gen
Andrews last night said:
Not only ere the patrons of the Cleve
land high school opposed to the idea of
consolidation, but many of the public
spirited citizens of other parts of the
city, who have no personal interest in
the school, are ready to protrst against
such a move. Among this number is Gen.
C. C. Andrews, state fire ward n, who
| resides at 833 Goodrich avenue. In an
interview with a reporter for the Globe
last night Gen. Andrews said:
"I think it would he a deoidodly bad
policy to pursue. The merging of these
high schools, which would mean the
Ilishment of the Cleveland school,
ild, in my opinion, tend very strongly
lepreciate St. Paul's educational rank,
v.hich she has reason now to be very
Lid. It certainly would be a gross in
f to the prestige of the city abroad,
it seems to me that from this staud
lt alone, if from no other, the inno
vation should not he made."
Gen. Andrews told of two young men
whom he had met in the northern part
of the state who were profitably engaged I
1n surveying on the railroad. He said '
their work was of a very high charac
ter and the only academic training they
had ever received was at the Cleveland
high school In St. Paul. He deprecates
any policy that has for its pmpore the
obliteration of such a valuable agency
of good as the Cleveland school.
J One fact to take Into consideration in
I the proposed merging of the schools is
j that if the high school i 3 moved this
1 will make considerable room for the
j grades, and it is understood that the
i grades in the Cleveland school are some
j what cramped for quarters just at pres
■ ent. However that may be, it is thought
j that this difficulty might be overcome.
! Another change contemplated by the
J board is to consolidate the Quincy and
i Mattock schools with the Ramsey school
I on Grand avenue. It is proposed to fur-
I nish a 'bus to carry the pupils from the
two school districts to the Ramsey
school. The Logan school, which is be
yond Lake Como, will be consolidated
with the ' McClellan, which Is near the
Lexington avenue bridge. Transportation
will likewise be furnished there. No
complaint has been heard from these

Two Rigs Collide.
Frank Williamson was arrested shortly
after 10 o'clock last night by Officer
Furlong, of the Ducas police detail, at
the corner of South Wabasha and Fair
field streets. He was taken to the Ducas
station and charged with being drunk
and disorderly. The story told by the
police is that Williamson was driving up
the street in a rig with a young lady,
and was driving his horse at a gallop.
"When he got to Fairneld he stopped the
horse and let the woman out. He was
just turning his horse around when an
other horse, attached to a rig, and be
longing to James Conway, came dashing
up the street at a terrific pace, with no
one in the buggy. He ran into William
i son's riff and both buggies were broken.
Williamson received some small cuts on
his scalp In the mix-up. He was drunk,
according to Officer Furlong. He was
also arrested on - the same charge, but
was later balled out for #25.

"I have heard of the enormous sums
the 'Maccabees pay out in benefits. This
is one of the best features of such orders.
Just think what that large sum muse
have June tor those who were fortunate
enough to receive a share of it." Thus
spoke Rev. F. B. Cowgill, of the first
Methodist Episcopal church, in a .sjKi.iil
sermon for the Maccabees of the Twin
Cities yesterday afternoon. He said fur
"People look upon insurance benefits
now in a different way than they used
to. i remember when I was a boy there
was an impression abroad that it was
defying the will of God to make arrange
ment for benefits iti case of death. S rim ft
men felt as If they were selling then
lives in a certain sense. They had luard
of men who had become Insured and
then died. There seemed to be a sort of
superstitious fooling in connection with
all insurance matters but that feeling is
all gone now and we look up with grati
tude to those who invented a schema
whereby husbands can save those who
are most dear to them from struggles
with the harsh world in case of their
own death. There is nothing more wor
thy of praise, in so far as order.-) are con
cerned, than the insurance features.
Thousands of people ari b ling kept from
dragging out miserable existence be
cause of life Insurance.

The presence in Minneapolis Saturday
of President Barling and Vice President
Bird, of the Milwaukee rallrcad, gave risu
to the report that they were here to dis
cuss the matter of the propos exten
sion of the Milwaukee line from Yank
ton to the Twin Cities by way of Farm-
Ington. This was not the case, according
to the statement of a local official of
the road. President Earling and Vice.
President Bird had simply stopped over
on their return cast, after an inspection
of the western division of the road.
Referring to the? matter of the pro
posed extension, the same local official
said that he was confident that Jit least
ten out of twelve of the -Minneapolis com
mittee that waited on president Barling
some days ago to ask the ad to run its
extension through Henton Junction, and
thence direct to Mliinearo'.ls, were satis
lied that an extension via Farmington
would be the only feasible and profitable]
route for the Milwaukee. Th proposed
extension would not amount to a dis
crimination in fa or of St. Paul, a.3 tfia
trains would be divided at Mendota, and
the cars destined for Minneapolis would
arrive in this city at the same time.
