Compare Their industrial Pros- r«•!••« With the Results of Western Invention. The Jobbers' union has received circu lars descriptive of the great Japanese International exposition, to be held at Osaka in 1903. This exposition will be of the utmost commercial importance, and already the applications for space are embarrassing the management. Min nesota manufacturers are urged to par ticipate. The circular says: There will be a special building for samples of such articles produced or manufactured in foreign countries a? may be of value for purposes of comprai son or reference in the way of industrial improvement. The primary object aimed at is thereby to afford the Japanese manufacturers an opportunity of study ing the latest products of Western inven tion with-a view to the improvement of Japanese industries. The substance of the regulations, which have just been promulgated, is as, fol lows: The building for foreign exhibits will be open from March 1 to July 31, 1903. Government offices and private individ uals, both Japanese and- foreign, shall be allowed to exhibit in this building free of charge articles of foreign origin.

Accepted applicants for exhibition are required to have their ex hibits brought to, and arranged in. the building between Jan. 5 and Feb. 20, 1903.

On condition that goods shall be re exported within two months after the closing of the exposition, exhibits from abroad will be exempted from custom duties. There have been so many applications from American and European manufac turers that it is feared that the space set aside for foreign exhibits, originally fixed at 21.600 square feet, and subse quently extended to 72.000 square feet, iray prove too small. It is stated that some of the foreign visitors have offered to bear the cost of erecting buildings for exhibiting large machines. The last exhibition was held in Kioto during the spring and summer of 1893, and was attended by 1,136,000 persons RUSH FOR TICKETS ELKS' SHOW BREAKING ALL REC ORDS IN SALE OF SEATS Hundreds Stood in Line for Hours to Buy Tickets for the Big Local Entertain ment. The sale of tickets for the Elks' show has be-en a record breaker, nothing lik^ it having ever been witnessed in this city before. From the moment the b#x office was opened the demand for seats was constant and it was announced la--t night that the house was almost sold out for Friday and Saturday nights, there be ing but a few seats left for these two performances. These are not likely to remain untaken for any length of,time. There are Ftill a goodly number of seats for the Saturday matinee and the peo ple who are figuring on seeing the per formance will have an opportunity if they do not lose any time this morning. It was a sight worth seeing when the box office at the Metropolitan was open ed up. There was a line of men, women and small boyg, many of whom had been waiting for hours for the opportunity to hand their money across the window. Many intending purchasers fearing a rush for seats hired boys to stay up all night in order to be in line ffood and early when the game opened up. Many would-be purchasers offered those in line fancy sums to vacate their place in the liner. In many cases those in line were paid for purchasing additional tickets for these who were not so fortunate as to get in on time. So rapidly aid the crowd congregate that it was necessary to give out number tickets in order that there might be no disputes arising as to the place rightfully belonging to each ap plicant. The way the hard American ccin rolled over the box office siil % yesterday was a caution. Beats went in blocks, whole sections being disposed of at a time. The management was overwhelmed with the rush and kept busy handing out the tickets all day long. Never before has a local entertainment attracted such a demand for seats. Every person in St. Paul seemed to have turned in for the entertainment. The Elks are naturally very much gratified at the splendid showing of the box office thus far. There is not the slightest dcubt that before the day is over there will not be a seat left in the opera house for love or money. St. Paul evidently in tends to give a right royal reception to ihe performers whose praises have been heralded so widely during the past two v>eeks. The entertainment is going to be a credit to the city and the city intends that the audience shall be worthy the splendid entertainment. DISTRICT COIRT NOTES.

WHARF IN THE WAY CITY LEGAIi DEPARTMENT TO GET AFTER DIAMOND JO COMPANY * DID NOT BUILD PLATTORM As the Wharf Is Built, Xo Small Craft Can Land at It—Word ■ ing; of the O'rili- . . \. nance. City Engineer Claussen has taken up with the legal department the failure or the Diamond Jo Steamboat company to comply with his wishes and request In connection with the location of the com pany" s new wharf on the river front. Under a previous ordinance the ccm pany was compelled to place between the river wall and the wharf front, a plat form ten feet wide ~this being for the convenience of small craft and excur sion boats which might have occasion to land. When the old building was wreck ed and the new one moved into place, a letter was sent to the company by the department informing it of the require ment and asking that it be respected, but the company ignored it. The wharf a 9 it now stands is plumb with the outside of the water wall, and a protest has been carried to the en gineering department toy small boat own ers who see 160 feet of good levee wasted as far as they are concerned. The com pany claims that the new ordinance un der which it is operating does not require a space between the water line and the wharf and the matter has been carried to the legal department for adjustment. City Engineer Claussen says he gave the company ample time to place the wharf as directed as his letter was fcr warded before it was moved from the landing adjacent to the Great Western bridge. As the company only uses the wharf once a week in the busy season and some times not that often, Mr. Claussien thinks the refusal of the com pany to comply, with his wishes is in warranted. The open space would le of great benefit to small craft and at the same time not inconvenience the Dia mond Jo company. No excuse for dark bread now.

NOT READY TO MOVE STATE'S ATTORNEYS HAVE NOT DE CIDED ON >PLAJf OP AC TION YET DOUGLAS DENIES RUMORS Report That Cas* Will Be Instituted _in New Jersey Courts Branded ■ as a Fabrica tion. The officials of the state of Minnesota interested in the case against the Northern Securities company are somewhat at sea as to what their next move is to be. Attorney General Douglas admitted yesterday that no plan of action had been agreed on as yet and would not be for several days. Gov. Van Sant was called' to lowa by the sudden deathi of his father and no action will be taken until his return. Mr. Doug las will diiscuss the matter thoroughly with the associate counsel today. Mr. Douglas said yesterday: "Tlve decision is on the ground of non joinder of parties. The court says the Northern Pacific and Great Northern roads should be included among the de fendants. The Great Northern is a Min nesota corporation, therefore if named as a defendant would not permit that court to assume jurisdiction. "The course that the state of Minne sota will pursue is a, subject I am not ready to discuss. I will have further con ferences with both Mr. Munn and Gen. Wilson, my associate attorneys, before any decision is reached!." Senator George P. Wilson, speaking of the decision of the supreme court yester day, said: "I cannot say that I am surprised at the decision of the supreme court in the mer ger case. At no time did I believe the oourt would take jurisdiction, if it could avoid it. Every state has similar griev ances, and to have entertained our suit would have established what that court doubtless regarded as a dangerous prece dent, that is, one that would impose too mudh labor upon that court. "The decision determines the fact, or principle, rather, that law is not an exact science. The Northern Securities com pany employed three distinguished attor neys as counsel to assign reasons why the supreme court should not take juris diction, and in their brief of forty pages these gentlemen did not once suggest that the Northern Pacific or Great North ern were necessary parties. Upon, the oral argument they expressly stated that these companies were not necessary par ties. It hardly seems reasonable mat they could be necessary parties, for the whole purport of the states suit is to preserve the integrity of those two cor porations as distinct corporate entities, and to prevent their spoliation by a for eign corporation." A dispatch was sent out from New York yesterday to the effect that Attorney General Douglas would not wait for ac cess to the United States courts to at tack the legality of the Northern Securi ties company under the Sherman act, but acting under instructions of Gov. Van Sant would file a complaint in the New Jersey state court at Trenton. Gen. Dougias last night branded this story as an absolute fake, "made out of whole cloth and without any foundation what ever." Intimations that this action would be taken have appeared in several East ern papers, but Gen. Douglas says there is absolutely no grounds for the infer ences drawn, that such a mode of pro cedure has never been considered up to this time. UNDERTAKERS MEET TWELFTH AJRIIJAIi OOXVE.XTIOX " OPE\B WITH TWO HiIiXDRED "-'// "■ delegatbss PRESEXT ;?■'/■?«' %: WELCOMED BY THE MAYOE Papers on Embalming Are Read, urn! Today Practical Demonstrations Will Be Made-Rev. A. B. Meldrum's Address. The twelfth annual convention of the Minnesota Funeral Directors' association began yesterday morning in Raudenbusih hall, with 100 members present at the opening session, which waa called to order by President U. F. Baird of Austin. Rev. A. B. MeMTum, pastor of the Cen tral Presbyterian church offered the in vocation. Mayor Smith delivered the address to welcome the members of the association and L-. W. Davis of Crystal Lake mad? the response. After the routine work of the morning was concluded, Rev. Mr. Meldrum delivered an address on "The Undertaker and the Ministers." He showed how the calling of each brought the members of the two professions in contact in a peculiar . way that was destined to have its effect on both sooner or later. Each had it in his power to help the other in assuaging the grief of the friends and relatives of the de parted, and making their loss les3 pain fully evident. That the two professions should work in harmony, he contended, was much ta be desired, not only for the welfare of each, but also of the general public, which called upon them for their services, a«d by doing this death could be rob bed, to a great extent, of its sting. In the afternoon the reports of the president, secretary and treasurer were read and approved, and all showed the association to be in excellent shape in every respect. J. Newton Nind, editor of the Embalmers' Monthly, delivered" an address, which was followed by a paper on "Things Necessary for the Beginner to Know," by W. I. Davidson of Man kato. Martin Benson of Fergus Palls pre sented a paper on "The Proper Care of an Undertaker's Office," which was greatly appreciated for its many practical sug gestions. Prof. W. P. Hohenschuhs of lowa City delivered a lecture entitled "First Step in Embalming," which was listened to with eager attention, especially by the younger members of the profes sion. The speaker laid special stress upon a complete knowledge of the human structure in every detail, so that no mat ter what case came up in after life, the embalmer would have his knowledge of anatomy to fall back upon. Prof. Hohenschuhs will be the prin cipal demonstrator and lecturer of the four days' session. He will conduct ac tual work today in the presence of the members, when he will bring out the latest amd most approved ideas as to em balming the human body. The undertakers and their families were present at the hall last night to listen to a minstrel show presented by their own members. The entire ground floor of the hall was packed and the gal lery comfortably filled. The entertain- consisted of minstrels, songs, coon and otherwise, monologues, comedian sketches and instrumental music. The undertakers Ifad evidently laid away thtelr suits of sombre hue and donned one of quiet, as there- was a constant rip ple of laughter during the entire per formance, whioh wound up with a one act skit, "Going to His Own Funeral," which was greatly appreciated.

SANDERS FEELS WARM IEFREISEATATIVE PROM SIBOLEY COIXTY WHATHY OVER DEFEAT Lddresses Siecond Ward Republican Club—Jimmy Drummond "Proves"' Tliat Republicans Cannot Lose in Coming Elections. Fred Sanders, Republican representa tive from Sibley county, said at a meet ing of the Second Vv ard Republican club held last night, that the defeat of the tax code in the house was a disgrace. "When the governor appointed that tax commission it was thought on every side that he had chosen good, able men," &aid Mr. Sanders, "but after they had gone along for a while there began to be cr>n • siderable dissatisfaction expressed with them, and it culminated in the defeat of the tax bill in the house, whioh was a. disgrace. The effect of that defeat will be felt by the Republicans at the next election, and will be one of the thing 3 that i they will have to successfully corabat in order to stay in power." Mr. Sanders was called upon for a few remarks, and that was the substance of what he said. The meeting did not dis cuss the matter at all, but confined itself to the city election and the coming pri maries. James Drummond was present with the list of candidates who have filed, and read it over, showing to his own satisfac tion that the Republicans could n.ot pos sibly lose out in the election. Mr. Drum mond emphasized the fact that the waris should stand together in choosing as semblymen In order to get a body to gether that would evenly represent the city. To this end, after considerable discussion, a committee of three was ap pointed by the ohair to investigate the situation and confer with other wards in the matter. There was considerable ob jection to the appointment of such a committee, on the ground that it would perhaps place certain wards where there are several candidates for the assembly in an embarrassing position. The mo tion to appoint the committee finally pre vailed. A number of candidates for different of-~ fices were present, and among those who spoke were M. J. Donnelly, Dr. Haas, James Drummond and others. George D* Hammond, secretary of the club, is a candidate for the assembly, and in view of this he tendered his resigna tion as secretary of the club. As his term will expire shortly it was not ac cepted. The next meeting of the club will be held Tuesday evening, March 11.
