Impossible to Keep Auditorium
Evenly Heated—Last of the
Prizes Were Awarded
There is some talk of moving the
poultry and pet stock show to Minne
apolis next year. The Auditorium has
proved a very unsatisfactory location, it
being: an utter impossibility to heat the
ground. floor and the heat rising to the
roof makes the balconies insufferably
hot. There are hopes of obtaining the
second floor of the court house in Min
neapolis next year. "St. Paul has had
the show two years, and is getting tired
o>f us," one of the officers paid yestorday.
An interesting feature of today's pro

by themselves, thus saving the expense
of transportation, and proving their

One wonders what carrier pigeons are J
used for in these days when wireless [

thusiast yesterday. "But lumbermen go- j

them invaluable, especially —le doctors, j

. . OP HOUSE ' ' .-' " " :'"l'''
Other Officials, However, Must n«>
Formally Elected by the
House Boi'ore They
Can Serve.
When the legislature meets this morn
ing ths (house will not have to go to the
trouble of electing Michael J. Dowling
speaker. He is speaker of the extra ses
sion by virtue of Ms election at the last
regular session. In other words he
"holds over." So rules Attorney General
Douglas in an opinion written for Mr.
Dowling last night When Mr. Dowling
reached town yesterday and began to talk,
of the organization of the ihouse, several
of the associates remarked that it would
be a waste of time to go through the
form of electing the speaker, as he un
doubtedly held over under the law.
Mr. Dowling was a little skeptical,
however, and did not want to take any
chance 3of invalidating any legislation
because of an irregularity in !his election,
and said he would prefer to be re-elected
rather than have any future trouble of
this sort arise.
In order to be on the safe side he asked
Gen. Douglas for an opinion, and that
official, on investigation, speedily discov
ered that Mr. Dowling helds over aa
speaker as well as a member of the legis
lature, the election of the speaker being
for the length of his time of membership
in.the body-
In the extra session of 1881 Lor en
Fletcher, who had been speaker at the
previous regular session, acted without
being re-elected- Mr. Douglas opinion is
as follows:
lion, M. J. Dowling, City-
Dear Sir: You request my opinion aa
to whether the speaker of the house of
representatives, duly elected at the ses
sion of the Minnesota legislature, be
ginning In January, 1900, continues as
such at th« special session to be conven
ed on the 4th inst., and also whether the
officers and employes thereof at the
former session continue without re-elete
tlon or reappolntment.
Replying 1 thereto I call your attention
to section 286, of "Laws and Practice of
Legislate Assemblies," by L. S. Gush
ing, commonly called "Cushing's Man
ual," which in part reads ag fallows:
"The speaker of the house of commons
accordingly holds his office during 1 the
whole term of parliament to which he is
elected a member, and in this country
the presiding officers of our legislative
assemblies hold their offices to the end
of tho term for which their respective
legislatures have been elected; notwith
standing any adjournment or prorogation
that may take place in the meantime."
Entitled to Continue.
Following the authority of Cushing, in
my judgement, the duly elected speaker
of the house of representatives for the
session of 1900, is entitled to continue as
such, daring the proposed) extra session,
and should call the house to order.
I find this practice to have been adopt
ed during the extra sessions of the leg
islature of Minnesota for th» years 1562
and 1881. respectively, and also find, upon
an Inspection of the Congressional Rec
ords, that the speaker of the house of
representatives in congress assembled,
elected at the extra session of congress
convened pursuant to tie order of Pres
ident Haves, on the 15th of October, 1877,
duly held the office of speaker during
hi official-term, at two subsequent ses
sions, and I find the same construction
to have been ad-opted by the lower house
of congress during the subsequent terms
of President Hayes a.nd Cleveland, at
which congress assembled in special ses
sion on the 18th of March, IST9, and on
the 7th of August. 1893. respectively. Dur
ing each of these terms the speaker elect
ed at the first session continued to hold
and exorcise the powers of such office,
without re-election, at each subsequent
session held during the official term ol
the members thereof.
To your second inquiry, arising from
the fact that other officers thereof aro
not members of the house of representa
tives, a different rule applies. In this
case, in my judgment, each." office or po
sition must ba refilled! by election or ap
pointment. Yours repectfully,
—W. J. Douglas,
Attorney General.
Certain Amendments Mnst Be Made,
but the Bill Will Pass—Opp<
tlon Not Strong: Enougrli
to Kill It.
"Well, this lookft like eld times," said
Speaker M. J. Dowling as he walked into
the Windsor hotel and saw little groups
of -legislators, the advance guard of the
extra session, huddled together in corners
whispering mysteriously and as if mat
ters of gravo import were on their mind.
"The members are at least greatly inter
ested in this proposed legislation, for I
never saw them discuss any quesetion
with greater earnestness.
"As to this tax law," said Mr. Dowling,
"I am no pessimist, and I am heartily
In favor of It despite the many objec
tions raised against it. Furthermore 1
feel sure that it is backed by the great
bulk of the people, and it will pass, with
certain necessary amendments. I do not
think there is the slightest danger of its
being wholly defeated.
"There are many legitimate criticisms, I
and these we must take up and discuss
and settle fairly. I am sure that neces
sary amendments can be readily agreed
upon, and a few points upon which we
cannot all agree will be so compromised
as not to endanger the bill.
"I have traveled a great deal through
out the rural districts of Minnesota, and
I am free to say that the great
majority of the people like the bill and
hope to see it pass. Here and there cer
tain criticisms are passed, many of them I
just, but for the bill itself, few people
want to sea it entiircly killed off. I bs
lieve the opposition is not nearly so com- J
mon, nor so fierce as has been made out.
"The people all believe that the bill,
whatever its faults, will be an improve
ment on our present system, rresent de
fects they are well aware of. Every
town assessor knows only too well how j
unevenly the burden of taxation is dis- j
tributed. I remember a case myself of
a teamster in a certain Minnesota town
being taxed t twice as' much as another
resident of that same town who was I
worth $ICO,OCO. And this is by no means
the exception. It is so common that peo
ple are tired of it, and willing to risß |
an experiment in their hope for some-1
thing better.
'•The new law has faults, several Im
portant ones. These will bo remedied.
Since the report was published I have
been studying it carefully. In addition
I have written to a great many county
auditors asking their opinion of the blii.
They ar© the men who will put the law
in operation, and they are in the best
pesition to Jttdge of the practicability of
the various provisions. The replies .1
have received are' very interesting and
valuable and will assist us in arriving at
a just conclusion In regard to the whoie
matter. I always believe that the com
mission should have comprised five mem
bers, two county auditors, one from iae
large cities, one from the country, in ad
dition to the three lawyers. The two
auditors could have pointed out several
little mistakes which have crept into the
"Much of the opposition to the bill is
honest criticism, and must be respected,
and acted upon fairly. Much of that op
positicn, which insists on the total de
feat of the measure, is a selflsn. opposi
tion backed by men who hope to escape
bearing their just burden of th© public
"I think the members are ready to got
down to business and I am not in favor
of wasting any time. It is a big ques
tion and cannot be, disposed of hurriedly,
but it can be taken up with deliberation
and remedied where needed without the
waste of much time. I do not expect to
see much general legislation proposed.
The tax law is important enough to en
gross' the attention of the legislature for
several weeks."
At the quarterly meeting and rally of
the Christian Endeavor city union, held
last night at the Dayton Avenue Presby
terian church, steps were taken prepar

House Will Organize and Adjourn
Until Wednesday, When Gov
ernor Will Send Tax Re
port to
The legislative session will bo cut short
today because the governor haa not com
pleted hla message. His excellency has
found it a disadvantage to have too many
friends whose wants are not all alike.
When Lieut. Gov. Smith called on him
some weeks ago", he said ho would put
the'message off until tha last part of
last week, as it could be written hastily.
But when the fifty-odd delegates had
finished giving the governor their good
advice, and he &at down to incorporate
it into his message he found out that it
was not so easy a task as it had looked
through the enchantment of (^stance.
The governor confided to Speaker Dowl
ing yesterday that it would be almost im
possible to get the document ready in
time for the opening session of the
legislature, and he begged Dowling to'
adjourn the house as soon as organiza
tion was perfected. This will be done,
and the governor's message will be read
at a joint session of the two bodies on
Wednesday morning.
The session of both branches this morn
ing will be very brief—Just long enough
to give the chaplains a chance to earn
$3. The senate, being already organized
by resolution of the last session, has
nothing' to do but appoint a committee
to wait on the governor. The house or
ganization will not take mucn longer.
As stated in another column, Speaker
Dowling is speaker toy virtue of his elec
tion at the last session, and* only the
other officers of the house need be elected
again. This will not take long, as the
old officials will all be re-elected by reso
lution, with two exceptions. George H.
Spear, of Brainerd, first assistant clerk
of the last session will not be here this
session and another clerk will be elected
in his place. Swan Johnson, of Minne
apolis, will be elected assistant sergeant
ta-arms in place of Ward F. Gray, of
Minneapolis, who is out of the state.
Speaker Dowling says he will reappoint
all the old committees to save time, and
if special committees afterward become
*LS*ssary he will apopint them as tho
exigency arises.
The house will adjourn immediately
upon organization, out of memory to late
Representative John W. Terry, of Meek
er county.
There has been considerable discussion !
as to what would happen to those mem- \
bers who have moved into new districts j
since the last election. Nothing at all '
will be done. Several senators come'
under this head, it is said, and there has
been a belief that some of them could
not serve. The senate is the "boss" of:
its own business, and if the senate votes !
to retain these men, once they are in, j
they remain, and cannot be disturbed.
Zt is not likely that the senate would
ever vote to throw out a member who '■
had served through one session.
Gov. Van Sant, it is understood, in his '
message, will intimate that the tax law j
may be improved by amendment. He !
will also favor the retention of the $ICO
exemption clause.
Senator A. W. Stockton will present the
tax bill in the senate, and J. F. Jacobson j
will perform the same service in the j
house. Jacobson will be one of the star ,
fighters for the passage of the law. Gov. i
Van Sant after a conference with gome \
thirty members of the legislature is se
reneiy confident that the bill will pass In
satisfactory shape. He said yesterday:
"The situation suits me. I have not a
worry on my mind."
Minnesota Has the Advantage of a
Year of Monthly Contests
of a Similar
Nat a re.
The officers of the National Creamery
Buttermakers' association have voted
to hold the six months 'educational and
championship butter scoring contest that
has been a subject of. discussion for two
years past, providing that entries a:e re
ceived from at least SCO members. The
executive committee met at Lincoln last
week and passed the following resolu
Resolved, That it is the sense of the
committee that we have a six months'
educational contest, under the auspices
of the association.
Resolved, That the secretary take en
tire charge and represent this committee
in carrying on the contest, and that he
be fully empowered to comer with the
United States agricultural department at
Washington and secure fre m them such
co-operation as he may deem beneficial.
Resolved, That the secretary prepare
a plan as early as convenjent for tha
carrying on. of this contest, which he
shall submit in person or by mail to the
available members of the executive com
mittee for their approval.
Resolved, That it is the sense of this
committee that no funds belonging to
or contributed for the'benefit of the as
sociation shall be used in defraying
these expenses, or providing premiums
for the six months' contest, except that
parties entering this contest shall not be
barred from the pro rata or other prizes
offered in the national meeting.
Minnesota buttercnakers are rejoicing
greatly at the prospects of adding new
laurels to the record of the "Bread and
Butter State." They have no doubt that
the 500 necessary applicants will be forth
coming. Minnesota will make up a good
ly share of the 500. Already a number
of Minnesota creamery men have indicat
ed their desire to enter, among them be
ing buttermakers from Lewiston, Nicol
let, Lamson, New Avan, Frost and other
lowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Illinois
count between them fuily 3,000 creamery
buttermakers. Neighboring dairy states
could contribute nearly as many, thus
making a total of over 5,000 creameries
who can, if they ill, participate in
this contest. The 500 requisite entr^s
must be filed within six weeks. The con
test will begin in three months. If the
other states take the matter up as en
thusiastically as Minnesota the result
will not be doubtful very long. The ex
penses of the contest have been estimated
at $3,000, and for this reason the 500 en
tries were demanded, as each entry will
be taxed $6, or $1 per month. If there
are more than the SCO entries the fee will
probably be reduced.
Commissioner MeConnell feels assured
that Minnesota will show up well in this
contest. For a year he has been holding
just such contests monthly in this state,
so the buttermakers are more prepared
for such an event than In some other

In Montana Work of National Asso
ciation Has Yielded Ho^niflcent
Res a Its—St. Mary's Lake
Territory Next.
George H. Maxwell, chairman of the
executive committee of the national irri
gation congress, arrived in the city yes
terday. Mr. Maxwell has long been ident
ified with the subject of irrigation in t"he
West, having been one of the first of its
able advocates. He has been meeting
with large bodies of men representing
varied interests during the last few weeks
in different sections of the United States,
and expects to continue the work. He
•appeared yesterday morning before the
St. Paul Chamber of Commerce, and will
address the members of the National Ir
rigation association in this city this aft
ernoon at 3:30 at ttvs Chamber of Com
merce. From this city he will go to Min
neapolis, where he will speak before Tne
Commercial club of that city in the aft
ernoon, and from there to Omaha, where
'hie will address the Commercial club of
that city. He will continue his journey
in the West, appearing at various points.
He will then return to Washington and
will be in that city most of the time dur
ing the session of congress.
"Tho contention of the friends of irri
gation," said Mr. Maxwell, "is that the
settlement of the arid regions will increase
the internal trado and commerce of the
country and enlarge the markets of East
ern manufacturers to a very great extent,
and many Eastern business men have be
come actively interested in the movement
from this point of view. Such organiza
tions as the National Business league, of
Chicago; the National Board of Trade,
the National Association of Agricultural
Implement and Vehicle Manufacturers.and
many other leading commercial and man
ufacturing organizations are strongly in
terested in the movement. It requires,
however, tho positive personal interest
of Western business men to insure its
success. The Western business men can
interest every Eastern jobber and manu
facturer from whom they buy goods, and
the aggregate of such influence as the
Western business men can in this way
build up in the^East will create an irre
eistible current of public sentiment to
which congress will be responsive.
Co-operation of the East.
"We cannot succeed in the movement
without the co-operation of the East. Tne
West has only one-tenth cf the entire
membership of the house of representa
tives. The only way to get the support
of the Eastern members is to first arouse
the active Interest of their constituents.
This can be done by the Western busi
ness men, and the object of the National
Irrigation association Is to bring together
the business men of tho West and the
East, so as to create an active public
sentiment in the East in favor of the
reclamation and settlement of the arid)
"The fundamental principle upon which
the whole movement is based is that fhe
lands for which water is provided by
government irrigation works shall be re
served for actual settlers only, and that
the lands reclaimed shall repay to the
government the cost of the construction
of the works. The association stands
upon the message of President Roosevelt
and the annual report of the secretary
the interior a3 its platform and is work
ing to get from congress at this session
the appropriation for the projects recom
mended by the secretary of the interior,
to-wit: San Carlos, in Arizona, reservoirs
in California to irrigate public lands in
Nevada, and the St. Mary's lake system,
in Montana."
At Chamber of Commerce.
Mr. Maxwell took for his first example
in this address to the Chamber of Com
merce yesterday morn-ing the territory
surrounding Billings, Mont., where con
siderable preliminary work for irrigation
on a large scale has been begun. Up to
the present time 60,000 acres of heretofore
unproductive land has been made rich
and fertile, and has added to the wealth
of that community to the extent of $6,
--009,000 in permanent values. The annual
yield of the land in this neighborhood 13
$750,000, and the annual wages paid in
the district amount to $270,000. The cost
of the irrigation work was $250,000.
The above facts the speaker took for
an argument in favor of developing the
territory about St. Mary's Lake, Mont.,
claiming- that there is there some 1,000,G00
acres of land only waiting for water to
become productive. Properly irrigated
these lands would be worth $10,000,000, and
would be capable of raising crops to U.a
value of $12,500,000. In making this esti
mate, Mr. Maxwell said that it was a
low one, that in all probability the net
results would bo much greater.
"Every inch of this territory would be
tributary to St. Paul," said Mr. Max
well. "And the merchants of thia city
would be greatly benefited. They would
not only furnish all the supplies used
In the territory, but would also" sell the
material used in the construction of the
ditches and canals. For this reason, if
no other, the people of this city should
be the most earnest advocates of irriga
tion in the West, for besides opening up
homes for hundreds of thousands of peo
ple, it would cause the City to prosper
"If the waters of the state of Montana
■were all used for irrigation purposes, it
would result In the reclamation of 10,000,
--000 acres of new arid, and therefore use
less land. The permanent value that
would result to the state has to be plac-

"Take for an example California. In
j that state there are but 1,&0,uu0 acres of
! irrigated land, and what has been the
| result. Simply that these erstwhile arid
wastes have produced more in actual
value than all the mines in the state.
And what is perhaps more significant
is that this same statement is true as to
Colorado, with all its far-famed mineral
"It should be borne in mind that the
only way to be successful in this matter
of national Irrigation is that the land
should be held for actual settlers as op
posed to the speculators."
Paul Martin's Protests Overrnled hf
Assembly Committee on Sireets
—Claimed He Is Inter
ested Party.
For the benefit of the C. A. Stickney
company, whose factory for the manu
facture of gasoline engines and other
machinery is located on the West side,
the assembly committee on streets yester
day afternoon agreed to the vacation of
Starkey street between Fillmore and
Fairfleld streets. The gift, however, was
not without opposition from several prop
erty owners and will in all probability
reach the courts where an injunction will
be asked for.
The street In question is the only
break in a lengthy block west of South
Robert street, and with the exception of
a narrow roadway is given over to the
tracks of the Great Western railway, and
a furnace 'belonging to the Stickney
works. As opposed to the vacation, Paul
Martin appeared for several interested
property owners, but his motives were
impugned by Assemblyman Wheeler, who
intimated that he was trying to foist on
Mr. Stickney some undesirable property
at handsome prices.
Mr. Wheeler was vigorous in his efforts
to have the street vacated for Mr. Stick
ney's benefit and finally succeeded in se
curing the committee's approval, but
the figure he named, $25, the committee
refused to listen to and raised the amount
to $100.
Mr. Wheeler incidentally remarked
that Mr. Stickney was being importuned
to go elsewhere and it behooved the city
to treat him well. "Yes, I have had an
offer of ten acres of ground from Chi
cago parties if I would move," added Mr.
Stickney, "but I would like to stay in
St. Paul."
Paul Martin threatens to carry the
matter before the council and then ap
peal to the courts if that fails. In tae
vote taken, Assemblyman Benson was In
the negative. The other members were
of the opinion that the street had out
lived its usefulness as a thoroughfare.
They figured that it would give better
returns if given over to manufacturing.
