fur Benefit of the Fund.
Vp to yestarday 5,647 people had decided
to give one day's salary to help to build
the Coliseum, and there are many times
that number still to be heard from. The
Carpenters' union, numbering 1,000 men,
is included in the above figure, and the
day's pay from this association alone will
amount to thousands of dollars.
Estimating that the average daily wage
of those already signed to be $2, the
amount already pledged from this source
will amount to $11,348, which will help
some. The greater number of those who
have already signified their intention of
giving a day's pay are from labor unions
and mercantile establishments. There are
Mill a large number of lists being dis
tributed, and every day finds at least two
< stabUshmenta in line. As the time draws
on the list will come in faster.
Yesterday the Hackmen's union nidi
fied President Bowlby that its members
would contribute one day's earnings, and
the employes of the Charles Mitz Coal
< ompany did likewise.
The agitation for a Coliseum in St. Paul
has affected n< ighboring towns, and a
Minneapolis paper is now asking why one
cannot be built in that city. In referring
to the work that is being done in St. Paul,
ii Minneapolis paper says:
"They are giving one day's income to
the auditorium fund—professional men,
capitalists and clerks, laborers, teamsters,
iters and workmen generally. The
organized trades are meeting and voting
1" appropriate sums equivalent to the in
< ome of their members of one day. 12m
s of large establishments from the
manager or president to the office boy are
signing subscription papers agreeing eacli
to give one day's earnings."
Newspapermen's Sliow.
Commencing May 23 for one week the
N<wspaper Men's Coliseum association
will put on a professional vaudeville ptr
formanoe at the Metropolitan for the ben
efit of the Coliseum fund. The general
committee of the association has decided
upon this means, and will make its re
port at the next meeting of the associa
tion, which will be held tomorrow after
noon at 4 o'clock.
This date has been chosen, as it makes
ii !■< spible to secure an all-star aggrega
tion of performers, who at any other time
■would be playing in different parts of the
country. The usual house prices will pre
vail, but the boxes will be sold for Jliß
each. Several of the boxes for this per
formance have already been engaged, and
there is every assurance of a large house
for the entire week.
The company that will be selected will
be composed of the most famous artists
on the vaudeville stage, and there will be
many turns that have not been seen be
fore in this city. Each act in the per
formance will be a feature that has been
stared In some company, and the result

Say* St. Paul Will Never Solve Pav
ing: Situation I mil Sandstone
ami Anplialt Become
Assemblyman "Whitcomb says he is
still of the opinion that if St. Paul wants
good asphalt raving, the kind that will
wear, it will have to pay a good price
for it.
"In commenting upon my remarks made
at a council committee meeting a few
days ago," ssid Assemblyman Whitcomb
yesterday, "certain parties have been
claiming that Minneapolis secures its as
phalt paving at a figure approximating
&;i~> a square yard. This claim hardly
agrees with a clipping 1 have just re
ceived in which the Minneapolis engineeY-
Ing department is credited with furnish
ing Mayor Rcse, of Milwaukee, informa
tion to the effect that asphalt paving in
Minneapolis cost aLeut $2.50 a sciuare
"And, I might add, though the clipping
doesn't say so, that Minneapolis does its
own paving, and even at the price of
$2.50 doesn't get a day's guarantee. In
St. Paul the guarantee, I believe, is ten
Dr. AVhitcomb says he has come to the
conclusion that there are on]y two kinds
of material fit for paving in St. Paul,
sandstone end asphalt, and when they
become competitors the paving situation
in the Twin Cities will be solved. Brick,
he says, w"ill never receive his vote.
Dr. Whitcomb ha 3 been making a col
lection of paving statistics, together with
some unpublished data regarding prices
paid in St. Paul during the past twelve
years and the present condition of the
work, and promises to irake it interest
ing for those who have seen fit to pervert
his statements and intentions.
System of Bookkeeping Enables the
Hoard to Know Exactly Status
of Funds Appropriated l»y
the Council.
Several members of the board of school
inspectors, even Republicans, are highly
indignant at the effort of an evening
paper in its issue of Friday to oast dis
credit upon the financial policy of the
beard in Ib9l, from political motives, be
cause the board was predominantly Dem
ocratic in its constituency, and to attrib
ute the present insufficiency of the school
board fund to unwarranted extravagance
at that time. One of the oldest and most
active members of the board said to
The Globe in discussing this subject:
"The impression which it is sought to
convey by means of that article is that
the board has been, and is, lax in its
methods of keeping accounts and there
fore is not informed of its actual finan
cial status. That is not the case; we
keep our accounts very carefully and can
tell what is due us at any time from the
city according to the appropriations
granted us by the city council, but of
course only the city officers, the comp
troller and treasurer, can tell whether
there is enough money in the treasury to
fulfill the appropriations made for us by
the council. And that is just where the
trouble comes in. There have been mis
takes made I grant you, and I could go
farther than that and tell you who made
them and how they were made, but I do
not wish to do so; suffice it for me to
say that they were not made by the
school board or the 6chool officers. Our
books are open to inspection at any tTme,
and we are pleased to show them to any
person who desires information as to The
financial affairs of the school department.
"Under the system which w Te follow' it
would be impossible that the appropria
tion of 1902 could have been depleted by
indebtedness incurred In 1901, for as
soon as a contract is made the amount
of that contract is charged up against
the fund and deducted from the amount
"In 1900 the council appropriated $107,000
for the use of the schools in the course
of the year, beginning July 1, 1900, and
ending July 1.1901, and of that we used
$104,000, and left 53,000 for incidental ex
penses. In July, 1901, the council appro
priated $125,000, and of that we have made
contracts providing- for the expenditure
of 5101,000.
"There will be a shortage, but, as I
said before, it is not the fault of the
school board.'

Seventy-Four Per Cent of Meat ami
Sixty-Four Per Cent of Vine
gar Samples Found to
Be Good.
Yesttrday the dairy and food depart
ment made public the results of the last
batch of samples analyzed by the State
chemist. The report shows the following
Ninety-one inspections of meats were
acted upon, and 68 samples were found
to be legal, and 23 illegal. The meat in
spections covered many towns of the
state, Owatonna, Farlbault, Park Rap
ids, St. Charles, Austin, Lyle, Barnes
ville, Cannon Falls, Winona, and dealers
and packing houses in St. Paul.
The meats found in the possession of
the retail meat dealers were, for the most
part, found to be legal. The larger per
cent of the inspections were for different
varieties of sausage and prepared liam.
The inspectors found that many of the
meat dealers are now making their own
sausages, instead of, as has been hereto
fore chiefly the practice, buying the
goods ready made from the packing
houses. The reason for this is that the
packing house sausage contains preserv
atives which are, for the most part, ille
gal under the state laws of Minnesota.
Naturally this entails more labor upon
the meat dealers, but in the end it Is
more profitable, and is the means of
keeping the dealers out of trouble.
Of tire twenty-three illegal samples every
cne of them was traced to some of the
packing houses. They all contain some
preservative condemned by the state
law. However, not all of the packing
house samples were found to be illegal.
Nineteen of the samples were inspected
by the department at the special request
of the department.
The department also reports that out
of 76 samples of vinegar examined by the
chemist 46 were found to be legal and 3o
illegal. The vinegar was taken from
dealers in St. Paul, Minneapolis, Austin,
Hayfleld, Kasson, Lyle, Lamberton, Fair
mont, Mankato and other towns in the
state. The samples of vinegar which
were supplied to the retailers by local
manufacturers were found almost invari
ably to be legal, while it was the excep
tion if vinegars manufactured outside of
the state were found to comply with the
law. This is another proof that dealers
can much more safe'.y supply their needs
from local manufacturers than by patro
nizing- outside manufacturers.
Samples from Missouri, Illinois and
New York are found to fall short of the
required standard.
S. T. Jackson, public examiner, has
started a new policy. Heretofore the
only county officials whose books have
been inspected by his department have
been auditors and treasurers. This year
Mr. Johnson's deputies will investigate
all county offices. He has written to
county attorneys, notifying them of this
change, and also asking them to use
greater vigilance when passing on tne
work of their colleagues in the court
house. A number of cases have devel
oped where county attorney and au
ditors have audited bills allowed by the
county commissioners in violation of law
County attorneys are requested to usa
greater care and see that all such bil's
are presented in strict compliance with
the law.
Mr. Johnson has also Issued a letter
of instruction to county auditors in con
nectieh with the repeal of the dog tax
law, and the refunding of the 1901 tax.
They are instructed to pay first all legal
claims for sheep killed prior to March 10.
and divide the rest pro rata among all
who paid the 1901 tax. Auditors are also
instructed not to extend or try to collect
any delinquent dog tax.
John W, Taylor K.lected President
for the Ensuing Twelve Months.
The Minnesota Audubon society held its
annual meeting yesterday afternoon at
the home of Miss Perry, 752 Laurel aye
nue. Mrs. H. G. Holdenberg, a charter
member of the society in Xcw Orleans
was present. The following officers were
elected: President, John W. Taylor;
honorary vice presidents. Horace Nor
thrupp, Bishon Edsall and Rev. G. IT.
Bridgman; active vice presidents. Dr L
B. Wilson, Miss C. T. Buel. Miss Sarah

Police Departments of Each Were
the Butt of the Country—
Widely Different Now — Cam- *:
paign Subcommittees Named.
Comparison of the votes by which for- (
mer Mayors Wright, Doran and Kiefer (
were elected with the votes polled by <
Mayor Smith Is the strongest commen- j
tary on the distrust of Republican admin- ,
istration of municipal affairs prevalent i
in St. Paul, and proves conclusively that '
if Republican administrationvhas brought '
| the city to the verge of ruin and disgrace, ',
I it has turned to Mayor Smith to retrieve
I its credit and character.
In 3894 and 1900 Mayor Smith was elected j
by votes which, represented changes or
practically 5,000 votes in each instance.
In 1?92^ Col. Wright was elected by a
j plurality of about 3,500. His administration
| was not a success. Personally a gentle
man of-the highest character, Col. Wright
was not the man for mayor. He surround- j
ed himself with henchmen who made his
administration a synonym for everything
j representing mismanagement of municipal
| affairs. He ousted Clark and O'Connor
from the police department and built up
j a police department which was the butt
of the country, and made St. Paul the
chosen haven of the crooks of the United i
States. He Imported a chief of police and ;
i hired an agency man for chief of his de
tective force.
\\ imi:«-ii Afraid to Sit on Porchea.
A carnival of crime ensued. Terror
reigred. 1-adies residing in the formerly
well-ordered Seventh ward were afraid to
sit on their own porches after r< o'clock
in the evening. Messengers on their way
to the banks were held up and xobbed in
broad daylight. Col. Wright's police and
detective departments were powerless, and
he was obliged to secure the services or
a detective agency to ferret out the crim
inals harbored under his system. After
tho agency had done its work and with
drawn its men, the thieves burglarize!
the chief of police's safe in the basement
of the court house to get back the booty
which he was unable to care lor after
having it restored by outside agents. At
the end of his term of two years the peo
ple demanded that Robert A. Smith again
take the helm, and Col. Wright's major
ity of 4,000 was turned into a majority ol
MKt for Smith.
Mayor Smith took hold of the wreck left
by the Republicans. Order came out ot
chaos The police department was restor
ed. The carnival of crime gave way to a
regime of safety and quiet, and the crim
inals who escaped prison cells shunned
St. Paul like a pestilence.
Boards governing public institutions
which had been demoralized by Wright
were reconstructed on a business bi
partisan basis, and the Democratic ad
ministration again took up the work or
paying off ihe debts contracted under Re
publican extravagance.
Again a Hotbed of Crime.
In 1896 Mayor Smith declined a renom.
ination and Mr. Doran defeated Mr. Cul
len by 3,705. Again the city was plunged
into the depths of the Republican mire.
Mr. Doran's first act was to set about
another reconstruction of the police de
partment, lie did his work so effectually
that within three months St. Paul was
again a hotbed of crime. The principal
streets were unsafe for pedestrians after
nightfall. So wretched -was the police de
partment that women footpads entered
the field and successfully held up and
robbed a citizen at the corner of Fifth
and St. Peter streets' at 9 o'clock in the
evening under the full glare of the elec
tric lights. His work in the police depart
ment completed, Doran set about recon
structing every board in control of the
city institutions. The bipartisan principle
of Mayor Smith and the Democratic party
was thrown to the winds and Mr. Doran
went to work to appoint his personal
friends to secure in the several depart
ments any and all patronage for the ben
efit of his friends and henchmen. Noth
ing escaped him. He started with the
water board and went down the line of
the fire, library and school boards, and
the boards In turn were obliged to bend
to the will of the Doran appointees, and
business principle gave way to a syslKn
of political fence builuing and loot. His
administration was so bad that his party
repudiated him, and at the end of his
term of two years his name was hissed
in the Republican convention, which nom
inated Col. Kiefer.
One Mure Demand! for Democrats.
The Republicans tried a change in their
own school of medicine with results
which at the end of a second term of i
Republican administration resulted in a
demand that the Democrats again be giv
en the reins of government, with Mayor
Smith at the head of the administration.
He was elected by a vote which again
showed a change of 4,985 votes, or 25 per
cent of the whole vote of the city, which
had been materially affectod by the fran
chise laws of a preceding legislature. His
administration speaks for itself. The St. |
Paul police department and its chief are
recognized the world over as nic peers
of any police department. Its school {
board has battled against the greatest |
odds and discouraging conditions to pro-
Vide ample school faci itks. lis fire b ard.
bipartisan in Its makeup, has reinstated i
the chief whom Doran ousted from office, j
and St. Paul is on* of the best tire In
surance risks in the United States. !
Doran's library board has been wiped out j
and the city's credit restored. The Demo. |
cratic administration has given careful
account of its stewardship and the p< ople
will audit the account with the biggest
majority ever given Mayor Smith.

G. B. CROWE, M. D.
Dr. Q. B. Crowe, a physician and very influential man in Alabama, and
Chairman of the Populist State Committee, in a recent letter to Dr.
liartman, of Columbus, Ohio, says:
Washington, D. C.
• <Pe-ru-na is a most valuable medicine. It affords me unlimited pleasure
to testify as to the merits of your remedy as a catarrh cure. I have used it
as such and find it is of very great benefit when my nervous system is run

The nervous system is the source of all
our bodily powers, mental or physical.
The brain and spinal card generate the
power and the nerve ftfeers convey the
power to every part of the body.
It is the nerves that give the heart
power to beat; it is the nerves that give
the arteries the power to contract, and
thus regulate the flow of blood through
Each artery is provided with an elastic
or muscular coat, which is capable of
contracting or expanding so as to permit
more or lees blood to pass through, ac
cording to the needs of the body.
When the nerves are paralyzed or
weakened this contractile power of the
blood vessels is wholly or partly de

Whisky containing enough fusel oil
("knock out drops") to put a dozen men
to sleep was sold by V. A. Quion, a pro
prietor of a saloon at Fairfleld and South
Robert streets, to Inspector George H.
Staples, of the dairy aijd .food depart
ment, in consequence of which Mr. Guion
may have the privilege of paying a fine
of from $25 to $1< In the police court.
This is the worst case the department
has got hold of thus far. Since the vic
tory won in the Duluth case, the dairy
and food department has been conducting
a quiet but vigorous hunt for vile tangle
foot. Mr. Staples bought a pint of whisky
in Guion's saloon and turned it over to
State Chemist Julius Hortvet, who anal
yzed it. He found that, among other
things, it contained 3<Ml)oth of 1.
per cent of fusel oil, which is a
derivative of amyl ajcohol. In the
pint of whisky there were thirty drops
of the fusel oil, and ordinarily two drops
will put a man soundly to sleep, if it
does' not kill him outright. Fuse, oil is
the most dangerous ingredient found in
whisky. It is fifteen times stronger in Its
effect on the human system than pure
alcohol is. It is placed in cheap whisky
to give it the fiery taste of the real arti
cle. ; • •
Under the law the severest penalty
La HCO, which is considered altogether
too light. The penalty Is precisely the
game as is prescribed for ' watering' milk.
The department is prepared to make
other arrests under the whisky act, and
the chemist has a number of samples to
be analyzed. Out of over 100 samples se
cured promiscuously in saloons in Duluth,
St. Paul and Minneapolis, less than 8 per
cent was found to be pure. But the de
fect in the law in that it does not specify
a standard of purity for whisky, makes
it impossible to prosecute most of the
cases. Unless whisky contains fusel oil
or me derivative of alcohol, which is
mentioned specifically in the act, the
dealer cannot be prosecuted, however vile
the whisky is. .It is considered certain
that when the results of the whisky in
vestigation of the past year are commu
nicated-to the legislature there will be
no difficulty in securing a remedy of trie
defect In the law which will enable the
department to successfully cope with the
problem of driving out "forty-rod" whisky
in this state.

"No one can endure a prolonged strain
but that nature- will demand rest or you
will suffer for it. I found this out dur
ing my last oilicial campaign, which was
unusually severe and resulted in an over
taxed system. I was unlit to properly
assume my duties and it was a serious
problem to me to decide what to do, when
my deputy advised me to try Peruna as
it had cured him when he was a physical
wreck. I sent for a bottle and method
ically used it, and was much pleased to
find that soon new blood began to flow,
restful sleep came to me, and my appe
tite increased, and my nerves became
quiet, and within two months ! felt as
though I had enjoyed a year's rest. I
am pleased to Indorse Peruna."'
