Likened the Martyred Lincoln Into
the Savior Who Died That His
Fellow Men _ Might
LJve. '
The members of th>> St. Paul Lincoln
club observed Lincoln day last night by
a banquet at the Windsor hotel, 'at which
275 people were present to partake of
the good things and listen to the address
of Senator Hiram F. Stevens.
The banquet was held in the dining
room of the Windsor hotel, which was
appropriately decorated for the occasion.
Behind the toastmaster was a heroic pic
ture of the martyred president. The
walls were draped with the national col
ors. Four long tables reached from one
end of the hall to the other. When the
banquet began there were very few va
cant seats to be seen.
The address of welcome was delivered
by John F. George, who complimented
the club upon the number present to
observe the day that should be most dear
to the hearts of all American patriots.
He said that some organizations held
their memorial services the day before
Lincoln day because this year the anni
versary of his birth happens to fall upon
Ash Wednesday. He could not under
stand any adequate reason for this, as
he considered that there was no day too
sacred upon which to commemorate the
greatest hero of the land, or to pay just
tribute for the one who likewise laid
down his life for his fellow man.
Senator Stevens was introduced as the
speaker af the evening. He to-ok up his
address where Mr. George left off, af
firming with him that even Ash Wednes
day waa none to sacred to hold service
in memory of the simple loving Abra
ham Lincoln.
"Since the days when the Son of God
offered up his life for his fellow man I
do not believe that there has been a life
so nearly like until His as that of the
martyred president. A chasm of }.. ars
separates them ns time is reckoned, but
the man whose memory we honor tonight
approached nearer the divine standard
of self-sacrifice and holiness than any
ot'utr in the history of the entire world/ 1
The speaker for a time dwelt upon
the various sides to the character of
Abraham Lincoln, taking the man who
could bring smiles to the eyes of the
little children and tears to the eyes of
their fathers; the man whom every re
ligion and political party claimed, be
cause he was large enough in heart
and soul to embrace them all.
Senator Stevens went at length into
the history of the parents of the mar
tyr of the Rebellion, demonstrating the
different forces of environment and lie
ledity which went to make up the most
complete and broad character that his
tory recalls. Several instances were giv
en of the close attention to apparent
petty details which was one of the char
acteristics of President Lincoln, when,
no matter how small they were, th?y
were of interest to someone, be always
looked into them.
Alter Senator Stevens, Dr Reese, who
I acted as toastmaster, called upon the
I following for five-minute speeches on the
j various phases of Lincoln's life, as ap
j plied to latter-day politics: Representa
j tive Mallory, Duluth; ex-Mayor Ooran,
j Oscar Hallam. Eli S. Warner, J. Q. Ad
j ams and C. F. Arnold.
j While it was generally understood that
i all speeches after the principal speech
j of the evening should be limited to five
minutes, few of the speakers confined
themselves to the time, and the result
was that speeehmaking was not con-
I eluded until after midnight, although
nearly half the attendance left the hall
! at the conclusion of the address by Sen
! ator Stevens.
Minnesota is to be represented by two
names in the Louisiana purchase exposi
tion hall of fame. Circulars have been
sent to the leading newspapers of the
state and to various semi-public civic
organizations, such as the commercial
club, asking that suggestions .>e made,
but there has been no way of bringing all
these agencies together in the indorse
ment of the same t* o, and in aii prob
ability the state legislature will be asked
to name the two men to be honored.
The State Editorial association meets
in Minneapolis next week, and a^ sug
gestions have been asked for. it is pos
sible that the association will request the
legislature to take the matter up, a gen
eral belief being expressed that no other
body could handle the problem so as to
represent the entire state.
The living are not eligible, but beyond
this fact little is known here of the St.
Louis plan. Whether it is the intention
to have men of national prominence se
lected, or whether the St. Louis authori
ties wish Minnesota to name the two
men who have done most for the de
velopment of the state, irrespective of na
tional affairs, has not been divulged, and
this has complicated the matter of se
lection. However, of the suggestions al
ready made Cushman K. Davis is given
a place in most instances. The late Gov.
J. S. Pillsbury is a favorite. Other names
suggested are Gen. Henry H. Sibley, Ig
natius Donnelly, William Windom, the
Right Rev. Henry B. Whipple anu Henry
M. Rice.
Members of the legislature are divided
on the advisability of the legislature's
attempting to name two from this list
of eligible?.
Senator George P. Wilson says:
I am of the opinion that, unless it be
comes necessary for the legislature to
take this matter up, it would not be
prudent to do so. Any such attempt
would, in my opinion, result in a tight
between the friends of the ifferent men
whose names might be suggested; and
such a proceeding would certainly be un
dignified, while it might easily" be dis
graceful. 1 btlieve that Minnesota should
make tne selection, and not leave it to
the exposition authorities at St. Louis;
but I scarcely think the legislature is
the body to do it.
Senator E. G. Potter—l think the plan
cf entrusting ..iis selection to the legis
lature is a good one. I don't know where
you could flnu a better representative
body; and the fact that the final decis
ion would rest with men from every part
of the state would lessen the likelihood
of the selection being affected by local
pride. My first choice would be Cushman
K. Davis. After that I am in doubt, and
would have to think the matter over
very carefully.
Senator E. E. Smith—lt would be a
happy solution of the difficulty to leave
the matter to the legislature. I suppose
people might say it is none of the legis
lature's business; but I can think of no
better plan for insuring a satisfactory
selection. Personally my choice would be
Davis and Donnelly.
Three Lincoln Day Drunks.
Judge Hlne, In the police court yester
day, only had three p-riscnars to dispose
of and two of these were only charged
with being drunk. The third was Rom*
Marshland, who pleaded gu.Utv to the lar
ceny of a< watch and poeketbook from tha
room of Josie Robinson, with whom he
spent Saturday nig-ht. He was given
ninety days at the workhouse, and one of
the two charged with beng: drunk was
given ten days, while the third was al
lowed to go on a promise to he better.
All three pleaded guilty to the offenses
chaiged against them.
A meeting of the Democratic commit
teemen of the Fourth ward was held
last night at Pfeifer"*, haH. Eighth and
Wabasha streets, to perfect- the organlza^
tion of the ward. There - was a good
attendance at the meeting and the re
ports from ea«h preeirtet showed that
the committees were :nearly full A list
of election judges as selected by the dif
ferent precinct committees was pre
sented and recommended to the county
central committee.
Assistant County Attorney O. H.
O'Neil, who is a candidate for nomina
tion for municipal judge, was present
and delivered an address on the new pri
mary law. He explained the various de
tails of the Jaw and then took up the
political situation in St. Paul. He was
quite optimistic in his views of the exist
ing conditions and In the signs of the
times could read nothing but victory for
the party at the coming election. JVlr.
O'JCeil's address was well received and
many of those present asked questions
relative to the operation of the law.
Thomas Daggett, K. Tood and Duncan
Connell spoke upon the principles of the
Democratic party in general and upon
the questions involved in the next cam
paign in particular. The meeting from
the beginning was an enthusiastic one
and indicated that great deal of energy
will be expended in the campaign in the
Fourth ward.
Will Boom the Dairy Indiistry of
the Whole Country and Stim
:. ulate Improved ;
Methods. ...
''It would be a lasting disgrace to the
dairy interests of the country if the
proposed national butter contest fell
through because the requisite 300 exhib
itors failed to apply for entry. I have
no doubt that it will be a go. Minnesota
has already come to the front nobly in
the matter, presenting as many appli
cants; up to date as lillinois, Wisconsin,
Kansas, Nebraska and lowa combined.
If the other states do as well as Minne
sota the contest is assured, and it will
be the greatest thing for the dairy inter
ests of the country that ever happened."
So says M. P. Mortenson, of Stockholm,
one of the Minnesota creamery men who
has signified hie intention of entering the
competition. Other Minnesota butter
makers write in the same strain to Dairy
Commissioner McConnell.
A. T. Radke, of Viola, one of the pre
mier butter makers of Minnesota, wno
has taken prizes at Buffalo and elsewhere,
is an enthusiastic supporter of the pro
posed scheme. He says: "1 am glad
to put my name down as one of the com
petitors in this contest. lam sure Min
nesota will more than do her share in
making it a great success. Great good
will come to the butter interests of the
state ir this contest is held. It will give
our butter makers an opportunity to
compare methods with the representative
men of the profession from all the states
of the [Jnioh, which will be very helpful.
If we mskf a good showing the adver
tising Which the Minnesota butter indus
try will receive will be invaluable. Ail
the creamery men of my section of the
state are in for the contest."
H. R. Bullis, of Elgin, which town has
as great a reputation for its bul^r as
any town of its size in the United State?,
lias entered the contest, and will do his
best 10 arouse enthusiasm for the project.
He says: "i should like *.o see this na
tional contest idea so successful as to
establish it as a permanent annual ven
ture. It would mean a great deal, to the
dairy industry of the entire country. 1
can think of nothing that .would give a
greater impetus to the improvement of
methods in butter making. It WoalS put
us aU to the test and keep us hustling to
ma^Ttain our place in the front ranks.
Such a national competition would be
productive of benefits, the financial profit
of which cannot be overestimated."
C. A. Sorenson, of Fairneld, says: "You
may count me In on this contest. Minne
sota must not take a back seat in this
movement. Our monthly state contests
have been of great advantage to us. and
this national contest will be of even
greater benefit."
So the idea is taking far and wide
through Minnesota, with every indication
that Minnesota wil continue to furnish
as many applicants as all the other
Western states combined.
Le Sneur. Debaters' Win.

morning considered an appeal by two.l-.lgt>
schools of the state for a settlement of
differences. The Le Sueui- and St. Peter
high schools, members of the State

short time since, and to l>e S'ueur was
awarded the decision. St. Peter-appealed,
saying its team was n^t allowed to use

favor of Le Sucur on the ground that St

Was Erroneously Lifted in Laud
Grant to Daluth «V Iron Range
; Road—(om unity to, Get
Other Land. ;
By way of eonsn miration of the stipu
lation between the land department of the
Duluth & Iron Range road and State
Auditor Dunn, as to certain lands in
cluded in the railroad company's grant,
Judge Lochren, of the Untied States "cir
cuit court filed yesterday a supplementa
ry decree in the case of The State or
Minnesota against the Duluih & Iron
Range railroad Company, Walter V.
Cobb. Minneapolis & St. Cloud Railroad
Company and the Great Northern Rail
way Company. This decree is fully in
consonance with the stipulation and close
ly follows its terms, which were outlined
at some length in The Globe at the'
time the negotiations were completed.
The decree provides that certain tracts
of land in St. Louis, Lake and Cook
counties, which are specifically desig
nated in a schedule attached, shall be ex
ceptefi from the original decree of the
court in the case mentioned, bearing the I
date of Jan. 8, 1900, wherein these tracts
were decreed to be the property of the
Duluth & Iron Range Railroad company,
and by this order they are decreed to be
the property of the state of Minnesota.
It is further provided that the Duluth !
& Iron Range Railroad company shall
have the right to select an amount of
swamp land in the counties of St. L,ouis,
Lake and Cook, not already disposed of,
and sufficient to make up the amount so
released and discharged from the origi
nal decree. The decree provides, how
ever, that the railroad company may not
select any land in the counties mentioned
■which has heretofore been selected by the I
state auditor and land commissioner to j
fill the grant or appropriation of state j
public institutions: but those officers are j
not to make any further selection under
the state public institution grant until
the expiration of the time allowed the
railroad company to fill it 3 grant, the
company being allowed for that purpose
the period of six months, after all of the
swamp lands in the unsHrVeyed town- !
ships of the three counties mentioned I
shall have been surveyed and patented
to the. state of. Minnesota by the United
States government. Should the railroad
company fail to fill its grant within the
time specified, the auditor and land com
missioner may then proceed with the se
lection of lands for the state public insti
tutipn grant.
The aggregate area of the land Involved*
in this supplementary decree is 44,664
acres, and its value is estimated at near
ly $1.000, GO?.
This stipulation and decree are the re
sults of negotiations between State Audi
tor Dunn and the railroad company,
which have extended over more than a
When the company agreed to build its
road north from Duluth to Tower, it was
granted several hundred thousand acres
of land by the state on condition that
the road be built by t.ie shortest feas'
ble route and within a specified time.
The road was not completed within the
time specified, and the grant was for
feited. A few years later the grant was
renewed and the road completed, but In
the meantime a constitutional amendment
had been adopted prohibiting such gr.ints,
and it was contended by some that the
renewal of the grant subsequently was
void. It was also contended that the
road, which runs up the lake shore to
Two Harbors and veers off to Tower, had
not been constructed by the shortest
route, and the company had therefore
obtained a larger grant than Its contract
called for.
Judge Loehren sustained the claim of
the railroad company. The company sub
mitted a list of lands claimed, and a de
cree was issued confirming the grant.
L*ter it was found that the list had,
through error, included about 40,000 nc:es
of swamp lands belongi-ig to the state In
stitutions, and Auditor Dunn began pro
ceedings to recover these. Under the stip
ulation between the auditor and Mr. Kel
logg, which is confirmed by Judge Loeh
ren's decree, the deed of these 45,000 acres
to the railroad company is canceled, th e
lands are reconveyed to the state, and
the railroad company will be allowed to
select an equal number of acre-j els- t

There were no new developments in the
search for the murderers of Officer Mayer i
yesterday,, and the only answer Chief i
Connor would give last night was that i
he had nothing new to say. No new ar- j
rests of suspects have been made during I
the past r two days, but from the actions I
of the police it would seem that they
are almost ready to spring something
that will be in the nature of a surprise.

Dr. Edward King-, the venerated and
saintly bishop of Lincoln, in England, is
now much advanced in years amd some
what infirm. Recently he has "been visit
ing Bournemouth for' his health, and T.
P. O'Connor, ir. his "M. A. P.." tells the
following story of the venerable prelate's
visit to that seaside health resort: After
resting for some lime one afternoon on a
seat on the "Parade" the bishop desin a
to move, but owing to his age and in
firmities, found some difficulty in rising.
A kind hearted little girl of the town
noticed his trouble and ran up, saying:
"O}:, let me help you."
The good bishop beamed on the child
with one of his sweetest smiles, and the
*mile of the bishop is very sweet in
deed. "You are a dear little maiden, ' he
said, "but 1 do not think you are strong
"Why, bless you, sir,'' was the reply.
"I've often helped up daddy when he wis
a sight worse drunk than you are."
O'Connor says the truth of this story is
vouched for by a canon of Ely, so it must
be true.
A story of Gen. Sir Charles Tuekor
is not quite so gvtxi, but is well authenti
cated. The general was on his way uut
to India, when he founl that there was
another Gen. Tucker on. board the ship-
Gen. Boot-i Tucker, of the Salvation
army. As the P. and O. boat cam.; along
side to land passengers at Port Said and
the gangway was crowded a woman was
overheard to say to her companion: "My
dear, there are two Gen. Tuckers aboard,
I hear. Can you point oui to me which
is which?" This was said in the hear
ing of the bkiff general, who was stand
ing; right in frcnt of them.
Turning fcharply around and pointing to
the other Tucktr he said: "Madame, I'hat

A pawnbroker with a shop uptown
thinks that after all there may be some
thing new under the sun, although the
adage says differently.
r "A man wearirg a rather handsome fur
lined overcoat same into my store yes
terday," said he one day last week, "and
after removing his outside coat handed
it over to be -put in pawn.
" 'I suppose you'll allow me a dollar
on it, won't you?" he asked.
"I said that he could have that much
and more, too, if he wanted it. He de
clined anything above a dollar advance
on^ the garment, and after getting it
went away. On the evening of the same
day he came back for his coat, and asked
how much the intere&t on the loan would
be. I told him 3 cents. This he paid,
and as he was going away I said to him:
" 'I beg your pardon, but do you mind
telling me why you put that coat in
pawn and took it out on the same day?'
" 'Certainly I'll tell you," said he, grin
ning mischievously, 'I merely wanted to
check my coat for safekeeping for the
day. At the Grand Central station par
cel room they wanted 10 cents, but you
kindly did it for 3. That's all. 1 "—New

There are places in New York where
gold will not always pay one's way. A
few days ago a man with two pennies
and a $2.50 gold piece In his pocket climb
ed the stairs at one of £he elevated sta
tions of the Ninth avenue line, on hfs
way down town. He was in a hurry, and,
pulling the gold piece, which was of the
year 1599 and in perfect condition," from
Ws pocket, he clapped it down on the
ticket agent's shelf. The agent picked it
up, looked at it curiously a moment
and then handed it back.
"Can't take that."
"Why not?" was asked quickly.
"I .haven't any scales to weigh It with."
"Well, have I got to walk down town
because you haven't a scales?'
"I can't help that. My orders are not
to take gold without weighing it. You
can get it changed down on the corner."
Down went the man to the street again
and readily obtained bills and silver fo»
