Committee Loses Money by Selling
Two Best Booths Separately—
County Growers Get
Stalls and booths in the new market
house, at Jackson and Tenth streets, the
rental from which will bring the city a
revenue slightly in excess of $1,200, were
disposed of by the joint committee on
markets yesterday afternoon.
"With the exception of two hucksters'
booths, bid in by M. Levinski, and the
two market stalls secured by an out-of
town gardener, the lot, which includes
the choicest sites on the ground, was
gobbled up by the Ramsey County Grow
er^ association, the officers and mem
bers of which were present at the meet
As auctioneers the committee could not
be said to be a glittering success, it per
mitting a neat little sum of money to slip
through its ringers in the excitement at
tendant upon the rivalry for two choice
hucksters' booths, located at the corner
of Tenth and Jackson streets. M. L.e
vinski, a semi-commission merchant, of
fered $10 a month each for them, which,
the Growers' association contested by
raising the figure. He finally ran the
amount up to $26, making the total $52.
Here someone suggested selling the
booths singly, with the result that one
was bid in for $30 and the other $16. The
sale of two others in the same manner
also resulted in a loss.
Lavinski's desire for two booths was
contested fiercely by the Growers' as
sociation, but he firally succeeded in get
ting them, paying $11.50 each per month.
Two rows of market stalls were asked
for and granted to the Growers' associa
tion, it paying the bet figures of 10 cents
a day for each of them. It took in sev
enty-six stalls and will net the city $1,185
for the season. The stalls allotted to the
association are the choicest on the
grounds, and it is expected that opposi
tion will be heard and the controversy
carried into the council.
The committee took the position that it
had given ample notice of its intention to
dispose of stalls and booths, and those
who failed to come forward and make
known their wants had no kick coming.
There are still over 200 stalls remaining,
and no trouble will be experienced in tak
ing care of transients or those who have
failed to come forward and select a loca.
It is not expected that the iron sheds for
the grounds will be in position before

The state normal board will meet to

effort to find itself, after a general dis

normal board will do cannot be sur
mised, but there is likely to be con
siderable difficulty at arriving at a de
cision as to its future relations with the
board of control. It is probable that
the board of control will be askeu to meet

It is said that some of the normal
board members, Director Phelps among
them, are in favor of lighting the mat

where the financial control of the board

matters at today's session, among them
the acceptance of the new school build

OBSERVE M'KINLEY DAY
SLPT. GLSEX WILL URGE MINNE
SOTA TEACHERS' TO ASSIST.
State Supt. J. W. Olsen will, in a few
days, issue a circular letter calling upon
all school superintendents and teachers
to hold memorial exercises on Jan.
which is to be observed throughout the
country generally as' McKinley day. The
superintendent, in his letter, will suggest
that the pupils be asked to contribute a
few cents each to help erect the proposed
McKinley monument at Canton.
The superintendent limits the amounts
of these subscriptions to 10 cents for
each pupil, and 25 cents for each fam-.y,
in order that no child shall be embar
rassed by not being able to contribute as
much as his classmates. Air. Olsen feels
that Minnesota should not be behind the
other states of tho Union in this respect
and i.3 confident that the appeal will be
responded to with enthusiasm, and wul
result in Minnesota contributing its just
share to the nation's tribute to its mar
It is likely that an especial effort will
be made in the Twin Cities to raise a
goodly sum for this purpose as neither
city has thus far contributed as much
to the memorial fund as has been ex
pected. It is said that Duluth has given
more than St. Paul and Minneapolis com
bined. Great interest has been mani
fested throughout the state, especially in
the country districts.
EMPIRE SHOW IS GOOD.
Large Crowds Enjoying This Weed's
The excellent free show at the Empire
theater this week is drawing large crowds
and contains a number of pleasing and
entertaining features. The programme
opens with a laughable comedy, entitled
"Bibbs & Bibbs," by Charles Ellsworth,

an excellent cast.
The olio contains several good num

Clinton and Wilson, in illustrated songs.
Kelly and Bertha make a hit with their
funnj- sketch, entitled "Can 1 Come In."
The contortion work of Mile. Felice is
above the average, is also the comedy

The park board, by reason of unusual
pressure from the West side real estate

in its original intentions, and the next

now proposed to permit a spur track in

The latest plan offered, and one which

Judge O. B. Gould, of the state board
of control, in discussing the alleged
abuses at the Red "Wing state training
"i, in company with another mem
ber of the board, visited Red Wing
last week, but our visit had nothing to
do with the alleged cruelties. We were
making our regular monthly visitation
to the school. The board will, how
ever, at the earliest possible moment,
make investigations into the report,
although all of the cases spoken of
transpired previous to the existence
of the board of control. This will not
deter us from making inquiries into
the matter in order that it m_ay be de
termined v. hfether there are any of those
whose names are associated with
the troubles still in the employ of the
state at K..-d Wing, and also to discover
if the alleged abuses did actually oc
cur, or if the whole thing is merely a
fabrication. It is stated that quite a
number of those connected with the re
ported outrages are no longer connected
with the institution, in which case, of
course, the board will have no authority
Speaking of the normal- board controv

"Tiie board has received no communi

it is understood that the latter board will
meet in St. Paul Tuesday of the present
week, at which time it is probable that
some arrangements will be made for the
future working of the two boards. Since
the decision of the supreme court the
state board of control has done little
normal work, aside from the considering
of estimates that were handed in during
the period of uncertainty. There were
about six: weeks during the time when
the decision of the court was pending
that the state board did no- normal
work aside from the granting of sal
aries, all other estimates being hung
up until the court should tell us if we
had the right to consider them. In
this way a large number of estimates
accumulated and the board has been

Dr. John Henry Barrows, president of

and .: the eminent scholar received a
hearty welcome. He was introduced by

Dr. Barrows took an exceedingly opti
mistic view of the future of the church,
of God and spoke at some length upon
the growing influence of the United
States in the Orient. He has traveled in
India and Japan, delivering a course of
lectures in the former counrty.
The point that he emphasized first was
prayer. He said the prayer that was
earnest and far reaching did more for
the church and Christianity than any
In the matter of political expansion the
doctor said the United States was rapid
ly acquiring a status in the far East tuat
was enviable. In the missionary fields
the workers of the United States have
possibly done more than those of any
other country. This kind of civilization,
he said, was just the thing to advance
the standing of this country in the Ori
ent. The American missionaries are
liked in India and they are hard work
ers. He also spoke In great praise of
the natives of the country and of the
special courtesy with which he was re
ceived while there.
The growing influence of the United
States both politically and in the Held of
religion, the doctor thought, augured well
for the future of the church and of this
country in the Orient.
Dr. Barrows is in a position to give a
broad and liberal view of the affairs of
the Orient, having traveled and studied
there. He concluded his address by
paying a tribute to the Oberlin martyrs,
there being thirteen graduates of the
college killed in the massacres in China
a year ago.
Dr. Clarence F. Swift, pastor of the
Park Avenue Congregational church in
Minneapolis also spoke. He proposed a
vote of thanks for Dr. Barrows which
was unanimously carried.
Dr. Barrows left for Chicago last right
and will go directly home from there.
In two weeks he is to start on a lecture
tour through the West, visiting Salt Lake
City and delivering a course of lectures
at the University of California. He will
be gone about two months.

GOVEMOR IS WONDERING AS TO
PROBABLE COURSE, OP THE
SESSION MAY BE PBOLONGEB
Possibility ' That Multiplicity «ii
Amendments May Defeat Tax
Revision Bill—May Last
Now that the extra session of the leg
islature has been actually called, a great
many people are doing some tall spec
ulating as to what that body will do
when it meets on Feb. 4. Gov. Van
Sant is doing as much thinking as any
one else. The governor, although he
called the session in good faith, after
careful consideration, realizes the many
opportunities which will offer that body
far dragging out the session to undue
lengths, and considering matters other
than the one for which the session was
particularly called. Many good Re
publican politicians advised the governor
to pass up the extra session idea because
they feared the result of the legisla
ture's deliberations, and realized the
possibilities for mistakes which might
be used against the party in the coming
The governor and his friends hope to
be able to prevent this by clever ma
nipulation. The present idea is to call a
caucus of the Republican members and
settle on a definite plan of action before
the legislature begins its work. The
governor v/ould be very grateful if the
legislature were to adopt the report of
the tax commission as a whole, just as
it was reported, and then adjourn. This
is the general sentiment at th*state
house, and such action on the part of the
legislature would undoubtedly be greatly
appreciated by the people of the entire
It is feared that if the legislature
once begins «to tamper with the law as
reported, there will be no end to the
amendments which will be offered, and
that a tangle may result from which the
legislature will never be able to get an
intelligable measure together' in shape
for passage. Several senators have ex
pressed themselves as favoring the
adoption of the law as it stands, assert
ing that the work has "been well done,
and by men who have had time to
properly consider the subject in all its
phases, and are therefore in a better po
sition to frame an equitable and just tax
law, than the legislature will be.
Question of Party Power.
The problem of the extra session
seems to be at the present time wholly
a question of party power. If the
members of the legislature can be
brought into line on an agreement to
hurry up the business in the interests
of the administration, the session will
be short lived. But the chances are
against this proposition.
Great influence will be brought to bear
upon the members to make radical
changes in the tax law as reported by the
commission. If the tinkering is once
started there will be no end to it.
While the session was called by the
governor wifh the tax report only in
mind, there is nothing to prevent the
taking up of other matters, and there
will be many efforts made to switch the
legislature to the consideration of other
subjects. It remains to be seen whether
it will work. A great many shrewd
politicians express the firm belief that
the session may last ninety days, and
take action on a variety of matters.
If the board of control controversy is
ever taken up by the legislature, there
will be a beautiful fight. , The friends of
the normal school and state university
say they will insist on an amendment of
the board of control law which will sat
isfy their demands. The Republican
leaders hope to be able to keep this con
troversy out of the extra session.
Several of Gov. Van Sant's state house
advisers urged him to state positively
in his call that the legislature should
consider nothing but the tax law. The
governor thought, however, that it was
better policy to leave the matter entirely
to the discretion of the legislature, plac
ing as much of the responsibility as possi
ble upon that body, hoping to be able to
prevent any serious outbreaks.
AT JERUSALEM IN 19134
IXTERXATIOXAL SUNDAY SCHOOL.
COXVEXTIOX MAY GO THERE.
Rev. George R. Merrill, a member of
the international Sunday school conven
tion programraa committee, has just re
turned from a meeting at Chicago. He
reports an attractive programme for the
Denver convention, opening: June 26. The
foremost Sunday school workers from
the United States and Canada will
.speak. The' programme is in the forma
tive stage, and will not be made public
until next month.
The railroads have granted a rate of
one fare plus $2. It is expected that
10,000 delegates from the United States
and Canada will attend. The delegates
are appointed by the state conventions,
and are double the congressional dele
gation in number. Already special
trains from Boston, Philadelphia, Chi
cago and St. Louis have been arranged
The convention Is triennial, and if the
St. Louis exposition is not postponed
until 1905 Minneapolis can probably have
the next meeting if proper steps are
taken. The Commercial club's attention
has been called to the matter.
Dr. Merrill states that the Denver con
vention will appoint a lesson committee
to arrange the international course for
the next six years. The present schedule
will run two years, which will allow the
new committee twelve months to settle
down to work. One of the most interest
ing features of the Denver meetings will
be the discussion of the lesson systems
and of the prospect of improving upon
the present scheme.
At the Chicago meeting just closed a
suggestion was made that the next
world's convention be held in Jerusalem.
This met with Immediate approval, and
correspondence will be entered upon with
English workers, and the proper persons
In Jerusalem. Dr. Merrill believes that
no proposition would excite more enthu
siasm through the Christian world than
the proposal to hold a Sunday school
convention at Jerusalem in 1904.
It is not likely that distance will In
terfere much with the attendance. The
American delegation, probably number
ing 600, would charter a steamer, and
both England and Germany would send
many representatives. It i3 believed
the convention would number at least

MUNSTER CHOSEN PRESIDENT
AH Other Officers Were Re-elected,
and the Reports Show the Or
ganization to Ue in
The Civil Engineers' Society of St. Paul
last night held its annual business meet
ing in the parlors of the Windsor hotel,
after which the men of the transit, lati
tudes and departures, adjourned to the
dining hall of the hotel, where covers
were laid for a banquet.
The business session consisted of listen
ing to and approving reports of the offi
cers for the past year, all of which show
ed the society to be in a flourishing con
dition, both financially and numerically.
The election of officers resulted in on'ry
two new names to the list, A. W. Mun
ster was chosen to succeed A. O. Powell
as president, and A. R. Starkey fills the
vacancy in the office of vice president,
caused by the election of Mr. MunsU-r.
The other officers remain the same as
last year, as follows: G. 3. Edinon.L tone,
secretary; A. 11. Hogelaml, treasurer; C. -
A. Winslow, librarian; George"L. Wilson,
representative at the board of managers*
of the National Association of Engineer- ]
Mr. Starkey presided as toastmsster at
the banquet in the absence of L>. W.
Rundlett. When the covers were removed
the toasts were responded to.
E. E. Woodman, "The St. Paul Civil-
Engineers' Society." Mr. Woodman dwe t '
upon the advantages the- members oi th.j
profession received from gatherings of
this character. He contended that be
sides the social side of the question, there
was the transfer of each one's experi
ence along different lines, which could
not help but be beneficial to all. In clos
ing he dwelt upon the integrity of the
profession as a whole, and said that it
was an honor to be enrolled among it3
The Minneapolis Engineers' club was
represented at the banauet By Prof.
Hoag, of the state university, and City
Engineer Sublette, both of whom re
sponded to the toast "The Engineers'
Club of Minneapolis." Prof. Hoag told
of the present status of the club in Min
neapolis, of which he is president, and
urged upon all the great necessity of the
profession keeping in touch with each
other by constant gatherings. Mr. Sub
lette reviewed the history of the Min
neapolis club from its beginning in ISB3
until the present time.
The subject assigned to Commissioner
of Public Works Claussen was "Electro
lysis." Mr. Claussen said that the sub
ject was one that was occupying th»
attention of all the large cities at the
present time. He spoke of it as a dis
ease which affected water pipes and all
other kinds of metallic conductors, lit
erally eating them up. He said in part:
"One would naturally think that in eat
ing up the pipes electrolysis would ac
complish its own destruction, but the
contrary is the case. It will eat all the
pipes that are laid in the ground and
eat them just as fast as they are laid.
The only remedy is to keep electricity
and water pin^s apart, and this can be
accomplished only by a complete metal
lic current independent of the ground."
G. S. Edmondstone tola of the trials (
and tribulations that fall to the lot of'
the civil engineer, and was followed by
A. "W. Munster, who reviewed the his
tory of bridge building-. Mr. Munster
contended that, with all the progress of
details there are still but four type3 of
bridges, and all of them are old..
George L. Wilson, assistant city engi
neer, closed the evening, responding to
"Municipal Engi.«-;eringr." Mr. Wilson
said the greater the city grew the great
er the problems in engineering, and that
each step in the advancement of the
city put the completion of engineering
.work that much farther away.
