Tomorrow morning at 10 o'clock Pres
ident M. E. Neary, o£ the Minnesota
State Federation of Labor, will call the
twentieth annual state convention to
order at Rochester, Minn. No conven
tion previously held by the federation
ha.« been so much talked about or look
ed forward to with greater interest than
this one. An effort has been made all
along the line to secure a complete and
thoroughly representative attendance.
The business trans-acted will be the most
important ever brought before the gath
> ering of workmen. There will be at least
£00 delegates seated, according to prestnt
There is some speculation as to who
Will be chosen for the various offices.
The moFt prominent candidates for the
w presidency are M. E. Neary, present
presiding officer, Louis Hansen, and
Hurry Dix, vice president of the Trades
and Labor Council. It is generally
conceded that W. E. McEwen will suc
ceed himself as secretary-treasurer.
There is considerable speculation as to
the legislation to be brought before the
convention Some delegates are in favor
of declaring unieservedly in favor of in
dependent political action on the part of
organized labor in the state. Others
argue that the time Is not yet ripe for
this move. It is likely that the con
eorvative element will control in the con

convention, says:

perience has taught as that the life of
every union is in keeping of its execu

of their fitness, and not for the reason
that they represent this or that union or

The convention will commence by the
usual addresses of welcome and respon
ees, and the committee on credentials will
report. On Monday afternoon the stand
ing committ* es will be appointed, and
.there will be the reading of reports of
officers and committees and other work.
On Monday evening there will be a mass
meeting. Preceding this there will be a
"* parade, after which the following pro

Infant Son of Hans I'l-tcmou Dies
Before Brother Could
Rescue Him.
The one-year-old baby of Hans Peter
son, a carpenter living at 234 Ross street,
fell into a tub of water at 4:30 yesterday
afternoon and was drowned. The moth
er of the child was inside the house, and
had allowed the baby to go outsidoln the
yard with an older brother. A tub of
rain water, nearly full, stood beside a rain
barrel at the rear corner of the house,
and the two children were playing around
it. The baby, just able to get on its
feet, was looking into the tub when it
toppled in, head foremost. His little
brother made two or three ineffectual ef
forts to rescue him, and then ran scream
ing to the mother. By the time the
mother arrived on the scene to pull the
child out of the tuo it was unconscious,
and died shortly afterward. Acting Cor
oner Whitcomb decided that* d< #» was
accidental, in accordance with the facts.

The annual observance of Memorial day
in the public schools of St. Paul was
this year carried out in far more elabor
ate fashion. The principals, teachers a nd
children in the schools were in perfect
accord with the exercises for the day,
and had prepared special programmes for
the event. All of the speakers assigned
to the schools were received with marked
attention and much enthusiasm, and, as
a result, the committee in charge, through
George R. Lewis, has seen fit to send the
following letter to Supt. Levlston:
"Irwen Leviston, Superintendent of
Public Schools, New York Life Building,
St. Paul—Dear Sir: I wish to express to
you, and through you to the principals
and teachers of the public schools, the
gratification the members of the Grand
Army feel for the cordial and enthusiastic
reception given them in their visits to
your scihools on the 29th ult. The patriot
ic songs that were taught and sung on
the occasion, the speeches that were mad*
by the scholars, the intelligent love of
their country instilled into the minds of
the pupils by the teachers must culti
vate in them a spirit that will grow with
their growth, and, in the language of our
ccmirander-in-chief, is of special impor
tance, 'for unless the deeds of the fa

Delegation Will Wait on Leßlslatiire
and Urge That Game and Flail
Appropriation lie Made at L,east
fT>O,OOO-LengTic to Reach Ont for
Larger Membership.
At a meeting held yesterday of the
executive officers of the Minnesota divis
ion of the League of American Sports
men, a number of important questions
wore discussed. The meeting was held
at the Commercial (-lu'b, and was pre
sided over by D. Lange, chief warden of |
the Minnesota division. State Game and
Fish Warden S. F. Fullerton was pres
ent, and addressed the meeting. Ho
pointed out the insufficiency of the pres
ent appropriation for the game and fish
commission to cover the vast territory
contained in Minnesota. The present
appropriation is $25,000, but in the opin
ion of those present it should be at least
double that amount in order to carry out
the work o' that department in the
proper manner necessary to protect the
game properly. The matter was dis
cussed thoroughly, and plans were made
to go before the legislature and ask for
a larger appropriation.
The leigne is organized in over forty
states and territories, and its abject is
the protection of game and fish, and the
preservation of the same for the ra
tional enjoyment of—all true sportsmen.
There are at present 350 members in
th.3 Minnesota division. Christe Adora,
of St. Paul; Henry Morgan, of Albert
Lea, anc C. K. Buckeye, of Herron Lake,
outlined a plan for increasing the mem
bership in the state, and after same
discussion Mr. Adora was appointed a
committee .>f one to carry' out the work
ings of this plan so as to cover every
town and county in the state.
The league has dene some very ef
fective work already for the rational use
of the forests and for the protection of
song birds.
It was decided to hold the annual fall
meeting andi banquet in St Paul on the
first Friday in November next.
C. C. Andrew* Speaks.
C C. Andrews, chief fire warden for
Minnesota, spoke on "Forestry," and
said in part
"The kingdom of Prussia contains 81,
--000,000 acres of actual land, being the
same amount as contained in the two
states of New York and Minnesota. Of
the land in Prussia 21,000,000 albres, Doing
non-agricultural, is in forest, of which
.6,000,000 acres ara state forest yielding
an annual net re/enue of $9,000,000. It
is very conservative to say that Mir
nesota has, in scattered localities, 3,000,000
acres of non-agricultural land, which is
now idle and useless, but which, if for
ested would, in eighty years, yield an
annual net revenue of $3,000,000. Unless
we Americans are willing to confess that
we are inferior to the Grermans, we will
soon begin to io something effective in
forestry. This state sho.ild buy up this
wasio land and gradually put it in for

Not one Democrat was ever appointed
by either of these two Republican
mayors on the school board. Democratic :
inspectors were thrown out, without ex- |
ception, by both of them to make room
tot Republicans. This is the way that
politics has been kept out of the school
board by the virtuous Republican brother.
It was by the same route that Barney
Zimmermann found his way on the board.
Genuinely Xon-Fartlt»an.
