St. Paul Can Boast of 115
Miles of Smooth Roads
for Wheelmen
A Few Enthusiasts Gathered in IS'.MJ,
Inaugurated Movement "Which
Han Resulted in \elwork
of Fine Paths.
St. Paul today is the proud possessor
of about 115 miles of excellent cycle paths
and as a result tho 12,000 cyclists of this
city can now go out after a rainy day
and ride to almost any place in the cor
porate limits without having to wheel
through a sea of mud. The laying of
all these miles of paths, however, has not
accomplished without the untiring
etlorts of some <-f St. Paul's most en
thusiastic wheelmen. Up until a year ago

bui durlm; the past year,
since the Minnesota Fide path law w;ts
passed in the legislature, Ramsey coun
ty's cycle paths have been under the i
fu! rare of th<^ Kamsty county side patta
commission. The members of this comm
ission, which was appointed by theu
•board of county commissioners April 15,
1101, after the law had been pa;s?d, are:

The idea of cycle paths was first sug
the wiiielmen of St. Paul by
A B. Ovitt, an attorney of thi.s city.
He called a meeting for the purpose of
organization at the Ryan hotel on the
evening of Feb. 2G. IS 6. A number of
the more active J.liii::eapolis wheelmen
wit also present at this meeting-, anJ,
knowing the urgent needs of cycle paths
in the Twin Cities, promised the hearty
co-operation of the cyclists of their city
in the cycle path undertaking. Mr. Ovitt
v.as elected chairman of the meeting and
J. M. Hanson secretary. There was con
sider;.! te discussion as to the best meth
odsj to pursue in the undertaking. One
thing-, however, seemed to be uppermo-t
in the minds of all present, and that
ws 1; that cycle paths were one of the
Important necessities m the progress of
the Twin Cities. Having settled this
question, those present next turned their
attention to where they ought to build
the first path. General s^niment favored
the construction of an interurban path
between St. Paul ;;nd Minneapolis by
either the University or Marshall avenue
routes. It was linally decided that the
petti should be built on the Marshall ave
nue route. A committte of Minneapolis
. . „j_.. i i .. . "' - '
wheelmen was selected to start the ball
rolling in that city, and when the meeting
adjourned the outlook for having cycle
paths looked very bright. The newspa
pers of the Twin Cities next took hold
of the project and started subscriptions

Association Is Formed.
On the following: Wednesday evening
another meeting was held, and it having
been ascertained that the Minneapolis
wheelmen had shown a tendency to drop
cut of the arrangements altogether, or,
at least, to organize a separate body of
their own, the St. Paul wheelmen decld-
President of the Ramsey County Side
Path Commission, and First Vice Presi
dent of the St. Paul Cycle Path Asso
Ed to organize a permanent association
to be known as the St Paul Cycle Path
association. The plan went into effect
immediately and the following officers
were elected: A B. Ovitt, president; Dr.
J. C. 5> Telson, vice president; J. M.- Han
son, secretary; T. B. Scott, treasurer; di
rectors, I^eavitt Corning. A. M. Peabody,
W. S. Getty. Dr. Ignatius Donnelly and
W. E. Bramhall. At this meeting ths
fact was brought out that the St. Paul
riders were anxious to have a path to
White Bear lake, In preference to the
me t-> Minneapolis, but the association,
however, decided to stand by its agree
ment with the Minneapolis wheelmen and
build towards Minneapolis. A committee,
coir posed of Mtssrs. Rundlett, Bramhall
end Jaggard, was accordingly appointed
to construct a path on Summit and Mar
shall aVenues, to the Marshall avenue
bridge. Later it was also decided that
thc-y build the proposed path to White
Bear lake, and A B. Ovitt, Tracy Lyon
and David llanna were named to take
charge of this part of the work. The
cost of the White Bear path was esti
mated at $4,000. The next question that
confronted the association was as to the
best way in v hich to raise the necessary
funds to pay for the construction of these
paths, and it was decided to place mem
berships ir the association at $1 each.
This plan succeeded fairly well and steps
were taken to get an appropriation from
the city end county to help along in the
work. The city accordingly appropriate!
labor and teams to the value cf $500, and
! the county commissioners voted $1,000,
j with right of way, on condition that the
\ wheelmen would raise enough more to
complete the path to the lake. The total
cost of constructing the Marshall avenue
path, which was finished shortly after-
wards, was $905.49, leaving- a surplus of
some $300 In the association's treasury,
and work on the White Bear path had
been commenced in three places.
Eighteen Miles in First Year.
The work cf building cycle path 9 con
tinued to be very successful, and by the
time the season of the first year was end
ed, Ramsey county could boast of no less
than eighteen miles of fine cycle paths.
One thousand six hundred and thirteen
dollars and seventy-three cents was real
ized by donations and subscriptions dur
ing the first summer, and adding the
appropriations and other donations also
made, the total amount of money collect
ed for cycle paths was $3,498.71. It cost
just $3,489.98 to build these paths, and
the association finished the season with
$9.03 in the treasury after having paid
all of the expenses.
Encouraged by the success attained in
their first undertaking the association
held a meeting on Jan. 20, 1897, for the
purpose of mapping out a plan for the
work to be done during that year. At
the annual election Mr. Ovitt. declined
to serve, and Dr. J. C. Nelson was elect
ed president, and P. E. Low, secretary.
Hosds Huilt in IBUM.
Nineteen and three-tenths miles were
constructed in Ramsey county during
1898, at a cost of $2,500. Probably the
most important path built this year was
the White Bear cut-off of the White
Bear path, following the shore of Lake
Phalen, through Gladstone, and again
joining the aid path some distance "be
yond the poor farm. Another import
ant path built_ the same year was the
three mile stretch on West Seventh
street,<*#which was from -the end of the
sidewalk at Otto street, to the Fort
Snelling Bridge.
Gecrge L. Wilson, of the city engineer's
office, had charge of the actual construc
tion of the paths, and being an enthu
siastic wheelman himself, bis services
were invaluable.
The cycle path movement was handi
capped somewhat during 1898 as the re
sult of disturbed conditions caused by
the Spanish-American war, but in spile;
of these conditions the numfoer of miles
of paths was increased to fifty before
the end of the year, and the report of
the financial condition of the association
showed, that after paying the bills there
was still a balance of $81.86 on hand.
The good work continued for the next
year, and at the annual meeting held
on March 12. 1900, Mr. Wilson reported
that during the four years of its exist
ence the association had constructed
over sixty-live miles of paths in the
country. During the year 1900 the as
sociation in order to raise money to
build more paths and also to keep the
old ones in repair, bent :ts efforts on
distributing bicycle tags among the
wheelmen, with the result that $2,516.50
was realized. C. P. Ptine was secretary
during this year, and much credit is also
due to his efforts in the matter, and to
the other members on the board of direc
tors. A number of additional paths
were constructed during ISOO.
Cycle Path L.-.w Passed.
Early in January, 1901, the directors of
the association had considerable discus
sion as to the advisability of having a
state law enacted creating the sidepath
commission, and " making it compulsory
for wheelmen •■ to tjuy t*gs':i in order ■to
ride on the 'bicycle paths. ' Constant lob
bying '■' on ; the part of ' the officers ;: and
directors <■ of the v Cycle Path association
finally resulted in the law being passed
and the commission, the names of /wliicl*
are given at th« head of the article,
appointed. ; This fj commission p; elected
George L». Wilson as Superintendent of
paths and under this laV County - Treas.
urer P. J. Metzdorf is custodian of the
funds. , „ . . .
The new side path association got to
work immediately, and by , hard work
succeeded *in selling nearly 12,000 tags
last ; year. : . One reason for.this, how
ever, was that the new law creating '• a
side path commission also gave the com
; mission the right to make it compulsory
upon all wheelmen who rode v on y the
paths to have cjcle tags. At this point
it might also be said that Ramsey coun
ty is the only eoun.ty in which this law
was taken advantage of and the com
mission organized. Owing to the large
amount of cycle paths alreidy construct
ed in the county, the sidepath associa
tion directed its attention more to re
pairing than to construction last year,
and under the careful management of
Supt. George L. "Wilson the paths wer-3
brought up to a high standard of excel
Xearly 5,000 Tug's Sold.
So far this year County Treasurer
Metzdorf reports that 4.64S tagn have
been sold. There are still about 7,000
wheelmen in St. Paul and outskirts who
have not purchased tags yet, but it is
anticipated that they will get them in
the near future.
The side path commission is also tak
ing extra precautions bo see that no one
who has not a cycle tag rides on the
paths in this county, and during the past
two weeiks has had two spec'a! police
men riding along the principal paths.
Men are at present engaged In building
a new cycle path on Oase street, from
Payne avenue to Burr street, and one on
South Robert street from Concord to
Annapolis streets.
With the $4,0C0 balance left over in the
cycle path fund from last year and with
the . receipts expected this year, the com
mission is in good financial condition.
For the past few weeks a i number of
men have \ been employed repairing the
cycle paths so as to haye T. them in good
condition by the time riding gets gen
eral. About fifty men are employed on
the paths in the early part of the season
and a force of about fifteen are kept at
work continually . repairing .and keeping
the : paths -■ in - good - condition. Another
feature of the work 'is- that the side
path commission owns its own machinery
and tools with which to do the work
of building [ paths. All of the above
things, | however, could hot be accom
plished without a great deal of hard
labor 1 anl - untiring effort, and much
credit is due to the few enthusiastic
wheelmen who met at the Ryan hotel
in March, 1896, and put ont foot a move
ment ' which has since grown until you
can -go to almost any' corner- and lake
in Ramsey ounty without having to be
afraid of the muddy roads that used to
greet- the cyclist a few years ago.
The affairs of the St. Paul Cycle Path
association, wihich ended its existence
with the appointment of the side path
commission, have been closed up, and
there is still a balance of something over
JIOO. This has been pieced at the dis r
posal of the side path commission to be
used on paths outside of the county, as
the repairs on these paths cannot foe
made with the commission funds, and It
is often hard work to raise the necessary
funds for work on paths outside of the
county. '"• "■■' „ .'., x- ... •.. - . ■ ■- .' i .

Season Just Over Has Been
One of Best in History
of St. Paul
Xo Clubs Have Disbanded—Prospects
Are That Many Distinguished
Artists AViy Be Seen Here ~~~
This Fall.
So far as St. Paul is concerned the
musical season is at an end. Com-
mencement exercises and a few pupils'
recitals will be held this week, but after
that teachers and students will seek re
cuperation during the summer months.
It is too early in the season to discuss
the musical outlook for next fall and
winter, but there has been no discour
aging disbandment of cluibs and no an- I
nouncements to make that outlook any
thing but hopeful. The St. Paul Choral
club has already decided upon two big
concerts, with a possible third; the
Schubert club will probably arrange to
bring one or more out of town artists to
the city; and it is probable that the 1
usual quota of foreign muscians will ap- !
pear under private management. To
make the coming- season a satisfactory 1
one, however, a large auditorium is nec»- !
essary It is probable that the new Peo
ple's church will provide this. * The aud
itorium in ; connection with the new
building will have the additional advan
tage of possessing an unusually fine pipe
organ, one of the finest, it is said, that
has ever been set up in the West.
Many of the local, musicians will keep
their studios open during the summer
months, but there are many, also, who
are planning to go away. Among the
latter are Miss Gertrude Sans Souci of
St. Paul, and Mrs. Fred N. Snyder, of
Mankato, who will leave tomorrow on a
concert tour, extending to the Pacific
coast. Their first concert will be in
Great Falls, Mont. They will be away
three weeks.

No value is set on the lavish summer.
June may be had by the earliest comer.
And what is so alluring as a camp by the
Where, literally one day we freeze, the

Then, if ever, is life rounded out; aye,
For Nature is no respecter of common

Whether we fish, or whether we sail,
We hear the waves murmur. Wo cry,
"All hail!"

"Turn ye, O turn ye, to White Bear lake

For 'tis true as the Scriptures, that soon

Every soulful instinct—some reckon it's
That gropes blindly about it, and reaches

And aspires to a cottage, with cool, sun

All about the lake such experience Is
This "Elysian shade," fame of pastures
Flash back through St. Paul Globe,

Bringing guests to White Bear from near

On all the banks there's not a tent nor

But it's som<- happy creature's home un

On his porch sits the head of the house
with the festive gad fly,
A-brushing mosquitoes, choking back
words, as good men should try,
And lets his illumined being o'er run
With the deluge of rain and dreams or

His wife broils the fish, for, alas, the

Took on-.1 sail on the lake; but o'er night
she ne'er stayed.

We knew the lake was far bluer than

And the birds were singing in the trees

Well, rain com*s, fold goes—we care not
For everything Is warm and delightful

As the grass to be green, or the skieal to

And the heart is so full that two drops

at ny« songs, composed by Mme. Con
stance Locke Valisi. One of the songs is
a lullaby, which the composer has dedi
cated to Geneva Johnston-Bishop. Two,
"Mi mories" and "Unforgiven." are love
songs. Both are plaintive bits of music,
full of fine harmonies. The following are
the words of "Unforgiven:"
A little hand is knocking 1 at my heart
And I have closed the door.
"I pray thee, for the love of God, depart;
Thou shalt come in no more."
"Open, for I am weary of the way.
The night is very black.
I have been wandering many a night and
Open. I have come back."
The little hand is knocking patiently;
I listen, dumb with pain.
"Wilt thou not listen any more to me?
I have come back again."
There Is no sound save in the winter air—
The sound of wind and rain.
All that 1 lovtd in all the world stands
And will not knock again.
