She Has Only Scribbled Address on
Torn Sheet of Paper to Guide Her
Reaches St. Paul Before Parents
[ : Expect Her Almost Lost Here-
Police to Rescue.
•With only an ill-scrawled address.writ
ten on a torn and dirty sheet of paper
half the size of an ordinary, envelope,
little Josefa Zielonskl, eleven years old,
arrived in St. Paul yesterday from Po
land. The. address bore the name of Jo
seph Zielenski, 239 Minnehaha avenue,
St. Paul, but was written so badly and
was so old as to be almost undeciphera
ble. Unable to speak a word of English,
the little one waited in the union depot
yesterday until her presence became no
ticeable, and she was turned over to an
All through the day she sat patiently
waiting for some one to come and take
lier to her home, but her parents did not
expect that she was to arrive so soon.
Where an ordinary little girl would
have been frantic with teaV, this little
Polish miss settled down with the calm
stoicism of her race to wait for what
was in store for her. Busy travelers
dashing in and out of the depot noticed
her anxious looks as she scanned the
faces of the passing throng for some one
she knew, but none had time or was able
to talk to her.
Oilicers Take Her in Charge.
When she was turned over to the of
ficer detailed at the depot she was taken
along from beat to beat until she reach
ed Officer Zacker, who stands at the Wa
ibasha street bridge. Officer Zacker
speaks Polish and learned the girl's
story. She was taken to the central
Station and the officer on the beat at
Minnehaha was instructed.to try to look
up her parents. He was unable to find
them on the street mentioned in the ad
dress, and Capt. Hanft, of the Central
station, had the officers looking for all
the Zielenskis in the directory.
Shortly before midnight- Joseph Zielen
ski was found at 769 Seminary street,
and he came down to the station to get
his daughter. The meeting between the
parent and child was touching. The lit
tle one was so overcome with joy after
all the trials she had passed though that
she broke down and sobbed, although
she had not made a complaint before.
She was taken out to her home, where
there was a general celebration, even at
the late hour.
The parents of the children came to
this country two years ago, and the
father has been working as a laborer
since. He managed to save up enough
money to send home far the daughter
lie had left behind, but had no idea that
she would arrive in St. Paul for several
Weeks yet.

Seventh Ward Assemblyman
Keturns From Business
Trip to Orient
Democratic . Party's Sweeping Vie
• tory Somewhat. Surprised Him—
Sightseeing in Far East Handi
capped by Quarantine Restric-
Dr. Rudolph Schiffmann arrived home
yesterday from a business trip to the Or
ient, which, although he visited only
a few of the principal points and spent
but little time at any of them, has oc
cupied three months.
When seen by The Globe last even
ing, Dr. SchifCmann's first words were
of the recent election, and in that con
nection he said: "Of course I was much
gratifie d at the result when I heard of it;
and as to my personal share in the
general success of the Democratic party,
I will say that I was surprised as well
as gratified. Naturally I hoped and ex
pected to be elected when I became a
candidate, but it is not always safe for
a man to be absent from home through*
out the campaign and election and still
count on being elected to the office: Un
der those circumstances the handsome
plurality which I received was more than
I anticipated, and I am deeply grateful
to my friends, whose efforts brought it
about. Owing to the fact that 1 have
been moving about a great deal, I have
not been able to keep posted on what has
been going on at home as I should have
liked to do, but I don't suppose it will
take me very long to brush up on the
mere important matters that are pend
ing. I find that the street railway com
pany has secured the action it wanted
from the council in regard to the Grand
avenue line, but I hope to see the mayor
veto that ordinance, in which case I
think it would fail of passage over the
veto. . ' .....
"1 think the Seventh ward, as a local
ity, should feel itself pretty well repre
sented in the council, with one alderman
and two assemblymen."
Delayed by Quarantine Laws,
Talking of his trip, Dr. Schiffmann said:
"I enjoyed myself, although I spent
a great deal of time in quarantine. 1
stopped at Honolulu on the way over,
and there there is a great deal of small
pox. At the Chinese ports they nave
the plague and at Manila cholera is rag
ing. At the time 1 was there the deaths
numbered thirty-five day, although the
sanitary regulations and quarantine pro
visions are the best of any city I have
ever visited. They have the city quar
antined against the rest of the world,
and the rest of the world quarantined
against the city. The precautions are
very thorough and rigidly enforced. In
side the city there is every possible safe
guard against the spread of disease. The
entire city is divided into small districts
and government sanitary inspectors make
regular tours, not only of the streets,
alleys and thoroughfares, but also of
the hotels, buildings, and even private
houses. Every house and. building is
visited every two days, and the in
srection is very • thorough, • including
the water supply, condition of the
plumbing and general state of the prem
ises. The sale of certain vegetables and
fruits is not permitted at. all, j and ; dis
tilled water is distributed. at the gov
ernment expense in a systematic manner
to obviate the necessity of the people
drinking the water from the" wells. Ma
nila is new one of the cleanest cities to
be found in any country. :
Manila's Fine "Coppers."
"The Manila police force is a fine look
ing and efficient body of men. In fact,
very few cities in this country can show
its equal. It is made up almost entirely
of discharged soldiers, all of whom are
more than six feet in height, and in their
kahki uniforms, which are kept in sol
dierly condition, they do present a tine
appearance. The only other city I visited
in the Philippines was Cavite, and 1 did
not remain there long The government
appears to have things well in hand in
Luzon, but from what I heard I should
not be surprised to hear of trouble before
long in the island of Mindinao. The sul
tan of Sulu appears to be in a disagree
able frame of mind and ready to start
something almost any time. • ■■•-•••
Chances for Money Making.
„ I think there is money to be made in
Manila, but the man who would take ad
vantage of the opportunities there must
have money to start in with and a great
deal of perseverance and energy.
"While in Manila 1 interested myself
in the case of Capt. Barrows at the re
quest of his friends in this city and Min
neapolis. Barrows, you will remember,
is the young man from Minneapolis who
was involved in the embezzlement in the
commissary department. He was im
prisoned and his return to this country
was- officially ordered, but the "Ord^r has
£_._&!*, en acted upon. He was confined at
Bihbld, which I found was under com
mand of Capt. Day, a nephew of the late
Dr. David Day, of this city. Upon visit
ing the prison I heard that Capt. Bar
rows would soon be sent to this country
but it had not yet been possible to secure
accommodations for him on any of the
transports by reason of the large num
ber of discharged soldiers who wished to
return, It would be contrary to the regu
lations to displace one of those men to
make room tor a prisoner. I succeeded
in interesting several influential persons
in Capt. Barrows' cause on account of
his relatives and I think he will soon be
brought to this country.
Visits Hon. John Goodnow.
"I visited Nagasaki, Yokohama, Hong
kong and Shanghai. At Shanghai I called
upon Consul General John Goodnow and
had a very pleasant visit with him. Mr
Goodnow is in good health. He appears
to exercise a great deal of influence, but,
like all men of his positiveness of char
acter he is unpopular with some per
sons. v
5,Dr. Schiffmann brought back with him
a number of relics, including a blood
stained 0010 and a creese, both from Ma
nila, and of native workmanship. He
also brought seven large crates of rare
orchids to be added to his already-large
and valuable collection. Some of thefe
specimens are of great value, and, from
the doctor's standpoint, well worth all
the trouble and expense of the trip

Since the strike has been declared off
and the building laborers have gone back
to work, building .of all kinds has been
booming in St. Paul, and the work is as
„ well in hand at the present time as it was
before the strike was inaugurated.
The contractors are all calling for more
men, but they do not seem to be forth-,
coming, and it is doubtful if the demand
will be fully supplied much before* the
building work lets up late in the fall. The
contractors could use to good advantage;

During the last week much work has
been done in the building line. A vast
amount of work has been prospected, and
a great many contracts ' have been let.
While the strike was in prospect, the con

opinion that the employers were not going,,

Rev. A. C. Dixon's Sermon.
"The only way to unite all classes and
nationalities is to have them meet at Cal
vary and become cemented by the blood
,of tHe X Lamb", was one of the striking
; sentences, in the sermon delivered before
* the delegates to,. the Baptist anniversaries
convention at the * Central Presbyterian
church yesterday morning by Rev. A. C.
Dixon. He took his text from Ezekiel, i., 1,
in connection with Ezekiel xxxvii., 1, and
the subject was "The Vision of God -in
Preparation for the Vision oTDry Bones."
; He said in part: '■■•••
In the first vision, God'l.givcs^EzektcL
the secret by which a* valley of dry
bones may be turned into a .living army,-7
and all missionaries at home "ana abroad
need to know that secret.-.-. _ .-. ..... ... r
There is a union of the.divine and the
human. The wing in the S/i-iptures is^
a symbol of. the divine and mystical,
while the hand is the symbol of the hu
man and practical. In the vision there
is more, wing than hand, and -we need to
put God first. The wing moves the hand.
So we need that all" human""* Activities
should be under the control of divine
wisdom and power.. The face of. a man
indicates winged intelligence. Rationalism
is reason apart from God, "grovelling and
wallowing instead of flying. The "new
humanism" is an attempt to lift human
ity without the wings of divine aid, and
it has..always, failed. The . face of the
ox indicates winged patience. Everyday
drudgery needs and may have divine aid.
The face of the ■ lion indicates winged
courage, and q. coward may be brave if
conscious of God's' presence and help.
Courage to metet difficulties is more needl
ed than courage to. meet danger.
Christ as a Magnet.
The face of an eagle suggests winged
aspiration. An aspiration to keep even
with a fast age W not sufficient. We
should mount upward. Christ on the
cross is. the magnet that draws, and
draws up, and it is needed to counteract
the gravitation of the earthl^, which
draws downward, sixteen feet to the sec
ond, in spite of the cannon-ball velocity
of the age in which we live.
The union of the wings means a divine
fellowship. The utilitarian spirit urges
all to join hands in doing good, but we
reed to remember that the unity for
which Christ prayed was spiritual. "God.
made one of all nations of men. "The
solidarity of the sun was at first based
upon creation. All were one in Adam.
But sin has broken that solidarity. Men
are not only separated from God, but
from one another. Now we have a new
solidarity, based on redemption.' We may
become one in the second Adam. 7
Educate all you will, only do not be
content with merely polishing bones. Re-,
generation is the Biblical basis of reform
ation, education and -organization. The
vision gives us. a picture of winged prog
ress. The wheel in the text is the sym
bol of progress. . Civilization goes for
ward on wheels. Note, however, that all
the wheels are controlled by the life of
God. They went with the wings, and.
there cannot be too many wheels if they
are all God-controlled. It is in vain for us
to attempt to run our own organizations
in our own wisdom and strength. It
-brings collapse to us -. and .' sometimes
wreck to the organization. The nana of
the Lord is upon us for guidance and
power. Let Him lead us to the harvest
fields where the dryest bones are, and
we can have a quiet heart, for the work
i 3 his.
Great Plans Needed.
And it was appropriate'that the wheels
mentioned in the text should be "so high
as to be dreadful altd full of eyes, xne
greatness of the-work demands great
plans and the best wisdom of the wisest
men. Men who think in millions ior
themselves and their corporations should
think in millions fort Christ in the world"'
evangelization. And . there will come a
time when we„shall; see with Ezekiel the
enthroned Christ. . Let us "look back to
the cross." For a standard of ethics may
we not adopt the standard of heaven?
"Worthy is tho lamb that was slain."
No longer are the ten commandments the
rule of life among, the redeemed, but
they measure all character*and life by
Christ on the cross. Not to be like the
self-sacrificing Son of God is to sin .by
coming short., When the cross thus be
comes our standard of living we will in
deed be the light of the world, not re
flectors? of light. -1 *.
1 Prospect' and Retrospect. - ,
i The afternoon meeting was opened with
a devotional service, led by Rev. R. "W.
Hobbs, of Wisconsin. . John H. Chapman,
of Illinois, president of the. union, intro
duced Rev. C.-D. Case, Ph. D.. who made
a stirring address on the "Prospect Be
fore the Baptist Young People's Union of
•America." Rev. Mr. Case said in part:
"I intend to give a practical justifica
tion for the right of the union to ass'st
permanently in the denomination. . Th.
'permanent heed is in. true Christian ed
ucation demanded by the young; peo
ple. This education. must in knowing,
doing.arid being; the first * being in Bible
study and study of Baptist history arid
missions. This need can only -be met by
an organization. That; organization must
be distinctly, denominational, and be

tne bouth. This need Is only met by the
loung Peoples Union of America. Of
particular interest in the future of the
work is the Christian culture courses,
winch are now presenting three different
lines of study leading . through junior,
senior and advanced "work. This is do
ing effective work, and 97,282 : examina

the American Home Mission society, pre
sided-, at the mas 3 meeting in the evening.
Gen. T. J. Morgan, of New York, in a
few words, stated to the meeting that
the collection taken at the morning meet
ing for missions amounted to $160.1.. Con
tinuing, he stated that it cost mC"hey. to
carry on this convention, and on beihalf
of the missionary societies he asked the
audience to contribute a generous collec
tion to aid in meeting the necessary ex
penses for the meetings, which have been
so profitable. •. ■ -
Rev. Dr. J. L. Jackson, of Chicago. 111.,
was then introduced and delivered an ad
dress on "The Christian's Duty to Hu
manity." Dr. Jackson said in part:
"The twentieth century is asking us
some very strange questions. Among them
is this one: Is it in accordance with the
highest principles of Christianity for one
to seek chiefly the salvation of his own
soul? The nineteenth century, especially
the first half of it, -had a certain and
positive answer to that question. It af
firmed that man everywhere and always
had one supreme duty, namely, to put
forth every effort to save himself from
the eternal burden. The twentieth cen
tury is got so sure about that. Indeed,
it -is coining swiftly to the conviction
that this is not the supreme consideration
in the Christian's life. "** It is conceded
that one must be born again, but that is
Gods work, and that, by faith, is to be
left with God. The Christian has one
first and supreme, duty always looking
him in the face: and that is to care for
others, to seek to rescue and to save his
fellowmen. This can be stated after this
manner: Take no thought for your own
salvation; put all the strength of your
life, of your soul, into the work of es
tablishing the kingdom of God upon
earth." *

F. H. Dyckmann Tells of Plans for

" Foture of Town's Princi

j F. H. Dyckmann, ex-president, and one
of "the largest stockholders in the Sleepy
Eye (Minn.) Milling company, was at the
Ryan yesterday on his way home to New
York city. Improvements on- the milling
property, to cost in the neighborhood of
$350,000, will be made this summer, and
he was called to Sleepy Eye in connec
tion with this work. ' - ... 7 ;.
j Sleepy Eye is a little town of inhabi
tants, but it has* a commercial reputation
extending much further than many towns
of a dozen times its size The town
owes is prestige principally to the fact
that it has one of the largest flour -mills
in the state, and one that will be the
third largest in the world when the pres
ent planned improvements are completed
this season. _
' Mr. Dyckmann's interest in, Sleepy Eye
has been" apparent" from the time • the
town was first started, a few years ago,
and among other substantial "lifts" it'
has received at his generous hands, is
orie of the finest public library buildings
In the state. The city furnished the
site, and the wherewith to perpetuate
the institution, and Mr. Dyckmann put
up. several "thousand dollars for the struc
ture and the books.
The milt has a present capacity of 2,000
barrels a day, but the enlargement which
has already been commenced will in
crease that amount to over 8,000 barrels
a day, and the total cost of the plant will
aggregate over $600,000. At the present
time it furnishes support to 100 families,
but when the new addition is completed
it will mean that from 200 to 400-families
will earn their bread from the Sleepy Eye
Milling company, and that in turn will
mean an increase in population to the
extent of several hundred.
Gunnery Tests * Show Battleships

LONDON, May 26.—An outcome of the
gunnery experiments which were wit

lords of the admiralty, when the "John

In an editorial on these experiments
the Times this morning says it believes
they show the necessity of very . costly
reconstruction and partial rearmament
of a large number of battleships, which,
although not very modern, . yet are reck
oned among the most effective of Great
Britain's fighting ships.

Discipline and Unflinching Devotion
ff.y Their Canse Shown by Soldiers
Constitutes Useful Lesson to
; -~ Many Church Members Who Are
7Concerned Principally About Con
genial Associations.
■ "The faith of the Savior is in all things,
and from that faith conies all things that
are good, in this world as well as in
heaven," said the Rev. Dr. Andrews, in
his .memorial sermon at Christ's Episcopal
church last evening. The posts and army
and navy organizations of the city were
in attendance in a body, and the minister
was comparing the life of the soldier to
that of the Christian and relating how the
Christian doctrines affected the life of the
soldier. •'
"Even Memorial day would be meaning
less," he continued, "were it not for the
saving consolation that there is to be a
resurrection. It is with a pathetic joy that
we decorate those graves in yonder
churchyard, but yet above that burning
sorrow, there is a comforting consolation,
even though we realize it not. It is De
cause we know that sometimes those
faithful boys who poured out their life's
blood will gain a recompense that could
not be given from any earthly source. And
this gives us that saving joy, without
which our hearts would be the more
heavy, as we think of dead comrades who
dared to die for the right.
*" : Joy Conies Willi Sorrow.
• "But joy comes with sorrow, and the
soldier, like the Christian, has his time of
joy. As he feels the finish, a joy cometh
that cheers the heart, and he can-feel
strong as he says, 'My end is near.* As
a soldier and a citizen, my course Is run.
I have fought a good fight, I have run
the course, and I have kept the faith as
well. I go to a home awaiting me.'
"But the Christian can take many les
sons from the soldier A soldier will not
say he is about to leave the army because
there is a man in the army whom he does
not like, as you will often hear the Chris
tian say of the church. He will tell yoa
that it is th cause he is fighting for, and
not for the companionship he acquires or
the associates that he finds. But the
Christian sometimes does not look at it
from this light. He seeks the church that
contains the people most to his own liking
and selfishly shuts himself up there, in-
stead of letting his light shine from under
the bushel. It apparently never appears
to him that he can do as much good in
one church as another, provided his heart
is right.
"But with both soldier and Christian It
should be the cause and nothing else. It
should be felt that the cause is worthy
of the humblest devotion, and that sacri
fice should be made even though there be
some one in the army or that church that
is not just what he should be. It is a case
of purpose rather than companionship!"
More Smoke Than Fire.
