Forced Entrance Throng-h Rear Door
and Broke Safe Open—sSOO Be
longed to >orlli Star
Brewing Company.
The saloon of Edward Reese, at Sev
enth and Neill streets, was entered by
burglars some time yesterday morning
between the hours of 1 and 6 o'clock and
nearly $900 in gold and bills stolen. Of
this amount 5800 belonged to the North
Star Brewing company and had' been ad
vanced to Mr. Reese to be used in cash
ing checks for the railroad men.
The police are of the opinion that the
burglary was committed by someone fa
miliar with the place. From the story
told by William Reese, father of the pro
prietor, to The Globe yesterday after
noon it would seem that there were three
men concerned in the burglary, and a
rumor was also current that they may
have been the murderers of Officer
According to the elder Reese he closed
up the saloon at about ten minutes past
12 o'clock Thursday night. The proprie
tor, Ed Reese, spent the evening at a
neighboring saloon. When Mr. Reese
opened up yesterday morning he found
that the rear door had been forced open
and the cash register was open. A bot
tle of whisky and six whisky glasses
were standing on the bar beside an open
box of cigars. Mr. Reese at once made
an investigation, and going into the
front office at the head of the bar, he
found the safe in a dilapidated condition
and the eioor lying on the floor uitder a
table about four feet away. The money
box in the safe had been broken and the
$800 belonging .to the North Star Brew-,
ing company, besides about ?50 belong
ing to Reese, was gone.
Mr. Reese claims that when he closed
tip there was about $35 in currency in
the cash register besides three checks.
The checks had not been taken and the
burglars had overlooked $6 in a rear com
partment of the legister.
The safe is an old-fashioned one, about
two and a half feet high and two feet
wide, and the door had been knocked
from the hinges.
People living upstairs all say they did
not hear any unusual noise during tne
night. The burglars have not been appre

Delegates Decide to Have Grand
Lodge Incorporated Under Lam
of Minnesota—Compensa- ' 1 "
; tion Rates Fixed.
The twenty-sixth annual convention of
the Minnesota grand lodge, A. O. U. \V.,
closed its session yesterday at noon.
As predicted in the The Globe yes
terday morning, the proposed new con
stitution providing for a change in the
assessment plan was defeated. As soon
as the grand lodge was in order, the com
mittee of the whole reported back the
resolution as previously published, and
which recommended that no change be
made, and the grand lodge ratified the
.action by.adopting the report of the com
mittee of the whole. It was utterly im
possible to secure enough additional
votes since the adjournment of the pre
vious day to cover the necessary two
thirds majority which was required un
der the laws for a constitutional change
Grand Master Workman White ap
pointed Dr. V. G. Hawkins, of St. rani,
grand medical examiner, and then anl
nounced the following standing commit
tees: Committee on laws, Oscar Hallam,
St. Paul; J. A. Eckstein, of New Ulin;
J. W. Sheparflson.'of Duluth; committee
on finance. H. R...Hare, St. Paul; E. W.
Randall, Hanjline, and O. D. Hoffman
Minneapolis. ,_
One of the important propositions be
fore the convention was a recommenda
tion that the grafid lodge be incorporat
ed under the laws'bf the state of Minne
sota, and this recommendation was
adopted. Master Workman Diment's rec
ommendation|to increase the per capita
tax for field work purposes to 70 cents a
year was defeated* but the grand lodge
Thursday night, Feb. 27, Daniel Be/asco's play "Naughty
Anthony" will be given at the Metopolitan Opera House. The
engagement is limited to one night; but The Globe, through the
courtesy of Manager,. L N. Scott, has secured ten tickets of
admission, each one of which will admit two people. These will
be given away to the readers of the want ad page in next
Sunday's Globe. The conditions are as follows:
Later In the season an eminent American actor will appear
at the Metropolitan, and will bring a play which has never been
produced in this city, Scattered through th 2 want ads will be
the name of this actor, the name of the piece in which he will
be seen, and the name of the author of the booh from which it
is dramatized. There will also be given the name of one other
play in which the actor in question has formerly been seen here
and which was considered as one of his greatest successes.
The ads containing these words must be cut from The
Globe, pasted on a sheet of paper and be mailed or left at
the business office addressed to the Contest Editor. The
writers of the first ten letters opened containing the correct
answer will see "Naughty Anthony' 1 as guests of Manager
Scott and The Globe.
The contest will class Monday evening at precisely five
o 'clock.
voted a tax of 10 ,cents a year for that
The salary of the grand master work
man was fixed at $1,500 per year; that of
the grand recorder 1 at $2,000. while the
grand receiver 1 was voted a salary of §'500.
The latter official heretofore received
his' compesnation from the interest paid
by the banks on the daily balances.
After the newljr elected grand lodge
officers had been installed, the time was
pleasantly spent with felicitous remarks
by a number -of the delegates, the gen
eral sentiment being to following the ad
vice of the past grand master to work
together for the common good of the
order. During the speech Grand Receiver
McCardy was dispensing the mileage
and per diem payments to the delegates,
and at noon the session became history.
In view of the fact that the ninth an
nual session of the United Commercial
Travelers convenes at Lake Minnetonka

of the Twin Cities have arranged a joint

State Labor Commissioner in Pos
session of Valuable Data—Mon
ctony of Housework Makes
It Unpopular.
State Labor Commissioner O'Donnell
has already received a sufficient number
of replies to the circular Inquiry re
garding wage conditions of women work
ers as to be able to summarize the gen
eral results.
The main point concerning which the
commissioner desired information was
why women preferred to work in stores
and factories rather than to do house
work. The replies are unanimous on one
point, that domestic service averages
higher wages than store service, and
makes possible a larger and more sys
tematic wage saving. One of the rea
sons given for the constant trend cf
girls away from the kitchen is an ambi
tion to better themselves. They are will
ing to put up with very small wages
and numerous disadvantages in the hope
that they will receive promotions which
will place them on a more commanding
basis of independence.
There was practically no sentiment in
favor of the contention that household
work is disagreeable or more monotonous
than other employment. The general
cause is- found to be the lack of system
in homes—the lack of a proper schedule
of working hours, and a neglect on the
part of housewives for the comfort and
pleasure of the worker. There is a prac
tical unanimity on this last point. The
women who employ domestic servants
themselves agree to this last proposition,
that the most essential remedy for the
present disinclination of girls to work
in homes is to make the life of the do
mestic more pleasant by having regular
working hours, giving them opportunity
for a reasonable leisure, and above all
furnishing them with pleasant rooms in
which to do their own work and re
ceive company. This point is dwelt upon
by a large number of housewives. The
general opinion is that there is very lit
tle difference in the views of the em
ployer and the employed, but there has
been a general neglect on the part of
employers to consider the larger needs
of the servants. The employers without
exception favor the proposition of a
school in domestic science, and believe
that it would not only greatly improve
domestic servants, but would make them
more contented in their work.
Commissioner O'Donnell says the re-
plies have settled several points, namely
that there is very little difference or
opinion as to the causes for girls leav
ing- the housework, the remedies for the
condition,, and that the problem of do
mestic service, is not near] so intricate
as has been believed; that it can be
solved with a little unselfish effort on
the part of the employers
m Th. e, a°itation Stirred up. by the depart
ment s investigation has . already been
productive of great good •in that it his
interested the housewives in the "ues?
tion, and it is being discussed every
where. The department has received as
sistance from most unexpected sources
in its search for acts, and is confident
that the great interest taken by the
large number of women in the question
will eventually result in some step to
ward a proper solution the so-called
"servant girl problem."

Registrar Johnson, of the university,
has prepared a table of statistics cover
ing the years from 1887 to 1901. During
this period the growth of the university
was sixteen times as rapid as the growth
of the state. In 1887 the enrollment was
412, and in 1901 it was 3,413. The average
attendance per 10,000 population has in
creased from 3.49 in 18S7 to 18.48 in 1901.
While the actual cost to each person in
the state has increased since 1887 from
2.996 cents to 8.68 cents, the expense to
each person in the state for each student
in the university has decreased from
.0072 to .0025. so that at present it is
about one-third of what it was fifteen
years ago. If the cost per capita to
each person to support each student in
the university had remained stationary
since 1887, the cost per capita to each
person in the state at the present time

This Firm Puts in Lowest Bid for
Contagious Ward, but Unions
■■■„ Want It Thrown
The employment of union labor in all
city improvement and construction work
is the bugaboo that now threatens to
disturb the peace of mind of the mem
bers of the board and of the assembly.
Two days ago the board and the as
sembly unsuccessfully wrestled with sev
eral contractors to induce them to tm
ply union painters in the painting of the
Fort Snelling and Selby avenue bridges.
One of the firms. Fielding & Shepley, in
formed the members that they would em
ploy union labor if possible, while the
other, Newmann & Hoy, practically en
tered a flat refusal. Between two fires,
the legal department on the one hand,
which furnished an opinion that no such
requirement could be demanded, and the
Painters' union, on the other, which
wanted the contract withheld if union
painters were not to be recognized, the
members of both bodies were at sea, but
finally settled it for the time being- by
referring the matter to the committee en
Bids opened yesterday by the board
of control for a new contagious ward
to be added to the city and county hos
pital showed Newmann & Hoy to be
the lowest bidders, and now fast on the
heels of the bridge contract complications
comes the rumor that representatives of
all the labor unions will appear before
the council and endeavor to have this
firm's bid rejected and the next lowest
accepted. Its bid was 541,224. The r.ext
lowest bid was $41,860, and was submitted
by Charles Skooglum.
The firm says it is not antagonistic to
the employment of union labor, and the
members, it is understood, have signified
a willingness to agree to employ such
if they can. The legal departments holds
that the council cannot reject the bid if
the firm refuses to make such conces
The labor representatives contend that
on the majority of city work done
strangers are employed, while in many
instances the contracts are taken so low
that beggarly wages have to be paid.
They say they are trying: to see .that only
St. Paul men are employed, and that
they are paid fair wages.

Candy Law Makes It Hard to Wage
Successful Campaign Against
Adulterated Sweets-Hedged
With Technicalities.
Dairy Commissioner McConnell will
very shortly begin, a series of chemical
examinations of the coloring- used in ihe
cheaper grades of candy. The depart
ment has a large supply on hand, and it
will be thoroughly tested in this respect.
If it should be found that the coloring
matter used in candy is in some sense
dangerous to health, the department will
conduct a vigorous warfare against thi3
kind of candy in Minnesota. People think
of the dairy and food department as
having charge only of matters pertain
ing to milk, cream and butter, and do
not realize the scope of work embraced
in its operations. And of those who know
that the department also inspects baking
powder, vinegar, liquor, lard, honey,
jelly, oils and paints, spices and con
diments, jams and preserves, very tew
are aware that the department also
keeps an eagle eye upon the candy which
the storekeeper deals out to the school
children, and every now and then takes
samples of candy from the stores for
One of the laws under which the de
partment operates provides that:
No person shall, by himself, his serv
ant or agent, or as the servant or agent
of any other person or corporation, man
ufacture for sale, or sell, or offer for
sale, any candy aduUerated by the ad
mixture of terra alba, barytes, talc or
any other mineral substance, by poison
ous colors or flavors or other ingredients
deleterious to health.
Whoever violates any of the provisions
of this act shall be punished by a tine
not exceeding $50, nor less than $'25. or
by imprisonment not to exceed sixty
days, nor less than thirty days. AM
candy so adulterated shall be forfeited
and destroyed under direction of the
Technicalities in. the Way.
The department has not prosecuted this
branch of the work so extensively ns it
has the others. For one 'reason the work
of the department covers so wide a field
that the force of the department can
not at present handle everything just ns
it would like to, but has to concentrate
its effort upon certain things which ere
of the most importance to the general
public. But there is another reason also.
As the law reads, it is very difficult to
prosecute an offender, inasmuch as the
law is not very inclusive. The depart
ment may prosecute if it finds in candy
Ingredients deleterious to public health,
but oftentimes it finds candy composed
mostly of glucose and substances not fit
for consumption, but which do not tech
nically come under the law.
The department regards this law as of
no little importance, as the consumption
of candy is a matter which affects co
many people, and if it is found that the
law will permit a crusade against choap
candy on the score of its coloring such
a campaign will be made.
The President a Slave to Catarrh—

"For years I was afflicted with Chronic
Catarrh. Remedies and treatments by
specialists only gave me temporary re

good thing in my case.-r2l.
