WEDNESDAY, JULY 9, 1902.
The president's training as a bronco
buster may have taught him that there
is efficacy in a bluff. He will find that
successful bluffing has been a lost art
in politics since the days of his proto
type, Jim Blame, of reciprocity fame.
The present situation of the finances
of the school department of the city
of St. Paul is the ultimate outcome of
a state of things which has brought
the utmost discredit upon the commu
nity and the utmost inconvenience,
even injustice, upon the teaching staff
of our city schools. It is purely of of
ficial creation. There is no substantive
reason why the present embarrassment
should prevail. The people have fairly
lavished upon their public schools the
fruits of the public burdens imposed
upon them. State and municipality
alike have borne the burdens willingly
whicn ought .to have secured to every
child of d resident of St. Paul the most
ample facilities for public education,
extending from kindergarten to high
school. That such a result has not en
sued is not due to official malversation
nor to official neglect, but to sheer of
ficial blundering and ineptitude.
JThe evils attendant upon a muddled
financial system have been intensified
in the past by an arrogant, bull-head
ed administration of the city finances.
The moneys which were designed and
appropriated for the construction o
additional school facilities are at this
late hour found to be inadequate to
the purpose, and a deficit is shown to
exist in the receipts of the school de
Mr. Holman signalized his reappear
ance in public office by presenting an
admirable plan for the reorganization
r-f the department's finances. It is
nn unpleasant on-i to <■■ >•■ '"•■»"■>.
It is unavoidable. If pursued intelli-
in putting an end to the almost dis
graceful tangle which has prevailed in
city school matters for many years
. past It involves, of course, what may
prove to be the indefinite deference
of the work of providing needed school
facilities; but even that disadvantage,
grave as it is, will be more than com
pensated for by the reflection that in
the future the department will at least
know where it is at.
The thanks of the • community are
due to the board for having preserved
the fruits of the advancement that has
been made in the past in the promotion
of mechanical training. Mr. Holman
was thoroughly convinced in his view
that the most radical economies were
necessary in that form of educational
training, and no doubt he was right, but
no deficits, however great, in the de
partment's funds would seem to Th c
Globe to justify the adoption of the
policy suggested by him with refer
ence to manual training. That depart
ment of city instruction is one which
has greatly endeared Itself to the people
and is almost indispensable to the
equipment of the average boy for the
work of the world. V
• No doubt when the beginning of the
fiscal year of the department is made
to correspond with- that of the city's,
future misunderstandings will , be
avoided, and the evils which -found
their inception in the shameful policy
of constituting the school board an in
dependent corporate entity will have
been brought to a close.
The man who had a vision that he
was due to save Chicago must be a
firm believer in visions to have given
any lodgment whatever to the thought,
even for a second. r "
CATHOLIC SUMMER SCHOOL.
An interesting phase of educational
activity finds expression through the
Catholic summer school, which opened
its session last evening at the state
The Catholic summer school is not
exclusively a .scholastic movement. It
is designed to promote the educational
interests of persons of - the Catholic
faith, while at the same time offering
an opportunity for summer enjoyment
and relaxation. The movement, of the
Catholic summer school is of recent
origin. It is a limited expression of
the disposition prevailing among the
Catholic people for closer relations and
for co-operation among the Catholic
people throughout the various sections
of the country for the promotion of the
Catholic religion. The movement, as
we say, is in its beginning, but in the
light of the marked tendency among
all classes of Americans identified in
thought or action to come together,
there is little doubt that within a few
years the Catholic summer school
movement will have reached extended
Movements of this general charac
ter may be said to have found their
inception in the Chautauqua organi
zation. As long ago as fifteen years
the Chautauqua society assembled at
Mahtomedi in fulfillment of a purpose
essentially the same as that which an
imates the movement for Catholic
summer schools, and then and since
has enjoyed at intervals the, high priv
ilege of listening to men highly distin
guished in the several walks of life, in
cluding the Rev. Washington Gladden
and others, like him, identified with
the moral, ethical and religious devel
opment of society.
There is no city in the country, as
Mayor Smith indicates in his address
of welcome, in which the representa
tives of the Catholic summer school
could expect to receive a more cordial
welcome than in the city of St. Paul.
St. Paul had its beginning under Cath-.
olic auspices. From - the day when
there was established on Second street
a rude hut under Catholic auspices,
consecrated to Catholic worship, to the
present hour, Catholic advancement in
this community has kept pace with
urban development, and the Catholic
religion, like the city of St. Paul, from
rude and apparently hopeless begin
nings has in the Northwest developed
into magnificent proportions of public
and private usefulness.
Every citizen of St. Paul, and espe
cially those of them professing attach
ment to the Catholic faith, is called
upon to promote the comfort and en
joyment of the ladies and gentlemen
in attendance at the Catholic summer
school. They come, here for all prac
tical purposes to spend their vacation,
and they will find here conditions
which are in the highest degree pro
motive of the best activities of mod
ern society. There are here the am
plest opportunities for their enjoyment
in every direction.
A stranger in any community is al
ways at a disadvantage. The ladies
and gentlemen of the Catholic summer
school coming from other communi
ties should not be permitted .to realize
at any time during their stay in St.
Paul that they are strdTigers here.
Their stay should be made as pleasant
as possible, and if the Catholic people
of the community, aside from all other
classes of society, will do anything
like what they can do to promote the
success of the Catholic summer school,
the result will be one promotive both
of the enjoyment of our visitors and
the good name of our city.

THE ST. PAUL, GLrOBIS, fWISDJVESDAT, JULY 9,190tf.
BIG RAISE IN VALUES
CITY'S TAXABLE PROPERTY
SHOWS AN INCREASE OF
$4,000,000 THIS YEAR
FIGURES OF ASSESSOR
Inflated Values Punctured Over Million
Dollars, But This Is Offset by 10
Per Cent Increase on New Buildings
and Improvements— Valua
St. Paul will have almost $4,000,000
of additional taxable property this
year from which to draw a revenue
for the conduct of its municipal af
fairs and the other burdens which the
taxing power has seen fit to inflict.
And all this is in the face of the 10
per cent cut which the state board so
arbitrarily imposed a year ago.
County Assessor Conley yesterday
completed the compilation of the re
turns which his deputies have been
so industriously securing the past two
months, and the results are decidedly
satisfactory. Of real estate and im
provements in St. Paul the total valu
ation figured $73,777,125, an increase
of $2,902,126 over the valuation of
1900. In the county proper, the vil
lages showed taxable property to the
value of $905,799, and the townships
$2,331,921. The grand total of real
estate improvements for both city and
county is $77,938,400.
In computing the value of unimprov
ed real estate Mr. Conley considerably
punctured the inflated values that have
been imposed on outlaying holdings,
by dropping the previous figures over
$1,000,000. This, however, was consid
erably offset by the addition of 10 per
cent to the value of new buildings and
the many improvements that have
been made since the last assessment
In the matter of personal property
the compilation has not advanced far
enough to give exact figures, but the
advance over the returns of 1900 will
be fully $1,000,000, making a total in
crease in the taxable property of St.
Paul of nearly $4,000,000. The entire
value of personal property figures
TO UPHOLD GEDNEY
Investigation Is Completed, Greatly ta
the Relief of Assemblymen Con
The assembly subcommittee on
streets completed its investigation of
the alleged violation of the employ
ment provision of the Gedney Pickling
company's West side levee lease yes
terday afternoon. No decision was
reached, but this will be formulated
later in the shape of a report which the
committee will present at the next
meeting of the regular body.
As requested on the day previous, C.
R. Gedney, the manager of the com
pany, presented his pay rolls for the
past twelve months and also verbally
attested to their authenticity. Correct
ly interpreted the pay rolls did not
show the constant employment of fif
teen men, as demanded by the lease,
but by permitting the use of the word
average and bunching the number of
days worked by all the persons em
ployed during the year the difficulty
was abridged. This scheme was vigor
ously advocated by Assemblyman Ar
nold, and finally accepted by the other
members. The ordinance authorizing
the lease speaks of the employment of
men only, but on the pay roll were
the names of two women. Mr. Arnold
was of the opinion that rightfully in
terpreted the ordinance meant persons.
He did not think it was the intention
to discriminate between the sexes. Of
those employed constantly eight were
given as salesmen and office employes,
one a teamster and one a manager, Mr.
Gedney himself. Others employed were
by the day, their number varying with
the state of businss.
Health Commissioner Ohage was in
attendance, but he took little part in
the investigation except to introduce
Ambrose Young and F. C. Pendergast,
who testified to having visited the
Gedney plant, and while incidentally
asking for employment, succeeded in
securing from the foreman a statement
of the number of persons employed at
this time. According to the informa
tion secured by these two men the
number of employes consisted of three
men and two women. Assemblyman
Arnold started to vigorously cross-ex
amine the two men, and Mr. Gedney
entered a protest on the ground that
the information was surreptitiously se
cured, but both were quieted by Chair
man Schurmeier, who informed them
that the statements of the two men
were substantiated by the pay rolls of
that date. This concluded the investi
gation and the members agreed to ad-

There was some Controversy "as to
the time when ithej (report should be
made, and this prompted Mr. Arnold to
remark: "The quicker the better; de
lay only keeps this-! confounded con
troversy alive. The Sooner it is killed
and buried the better for everybody."

Despite ail this, however. Dr. Ohage
said he was satisfied .with the examin
ation. He was* confident that his
charges of violation had been sustain
ed, and even if overlooked by the com
mittee in its reportt* he had forced a
record that would not be disputed. He
said he looked upon the whole thing as
a victory for himself.
Over Two Hundred Delegates Attend
First Session— Gov. Van Sant
With fully 200 delegates present the
fifth annual convention of the Luther
League of America was formally open
ed at the First Swedish church, corner
of Woodward avenue and John street,
last evening, the commencement of a
three days' session. The large audi
torium of the church was crowded to
its utmost capacity, over 1,000 people
outside of th* delegates being present.
An interesting feature of the pro
gramme was the address of welcome
by Gov. Van Sant.
The governor was tardy in arriving,
owing to another engagement, which
he nicely explained in his speech, but
when he did arrive his greeting was
none the less pleasurable, and a hearty
round Oi. applause burst forth from all
parts of the church when he ascended
the rostrum. / .:
Rev. L. A. Johnson, pastor of the
First Swedish church, and Nels Jensen,
president of the Twin City Luther
League made short addresses of wel
come, which were responded to by Wil
liam C. Stoever, of Philadelphia,.presi
dent of the Luther League of America.
The remainder of the service consisted
of song and prayer, at the close of
which an hour was devoted to a recep
tion of the delegates and social past
time.' •'» '• »■ - ■ -.: ' pv.
Gov. Van Sant announced at the
outset that he had been doing little
else for the past few days than deliv
ering addresses of welcome, and that he
might get a little short of "welcomes,"
so that the delegates would know what
to attribute it to if he was not as warm
in his greetings as they thought he
should- be. But he welcomed them,
nevertheless, he said, and he hoped that
they would go away with a good opin
ion of Minnesota, for he was sure the
state was deserving of it.
There were no doubt, delegates there
from New England, he said, ana he
knew that New Englanders were gen
erally pretty proud, but it was never
theless a fact that New England was
pretty small compared with Minnesota.
Those few little states could lost in
a big state like Minnesota, he said, and
it might be quite difficult to find them.
But bier as the state was, he was sure
that the delegates were welcome to the
best there was going.
Dr. Johnson, pastor of the First Swed
ish church, welcomed the delegates in
the name of the oldest Lutheran
church in St. Paul. He said that the
gates and homes of the city were open
to the delegates of the Luther league,
and that they were royally welcome
welcome to the church and welcome* to
the city. They came as the army of the
Lord, he said, and he hoped that they
would accomplish much good for the
cause. y 7' 7
It was necessary that they be organ
ized if they were to accomplish the
work that they had set out to do. Or
ganization was necessary, no matter in
what form. It was Illustrated in busi
ness and in politics, and there must be
organization in the church.
W. C. Stoever, president of the Luth
er League of America, delivered the re
sponse on behalf of the visiting dele
gates, and said that he had a taste of
Minnesota hospitality before and that
he knew what to look for. He also
knew that the governor's remarks re
garding the largeness of the state were
perfectly true, for he got lost in the tail
timber when he was here in his early
years. The West was greater than the
East he said, and in time it would be

Blast Played Havoc.
While blasting rock in the sewer work
being done on Tuscarora avenue yester
day morning, a large, stone was shot high
into the air. It Janded on the rear por
tion of the roof of 537 Tuscarora avenue
and crashed through* into a bedroom onto
a bed. None of the family was in that
portion of the house at the time and
no person was injured. The damage to
-the roof was considerable, as nearly one
entire side was caved in.

•Romeo and Juliet" will be given at
the Grand opera house this afternoon
and this evening. It will also be given
at the Saturday matinee. Miss Has
well's performance as Juliet has re
ceived the highest possible praise, and
it is generally conceded that the pro
duction of Shakespeare's classic love
story is superior in every way to the
average stock company production.
"Camille" will be given by Miss
Haswell for the first time tomorrow
evening, and will be the bill Friday

sponse to numerous requests. Miss
Haswell. is said to play "Camille" in
an effective manner. Frank Gillmore

Sunday evening at the Grand the
summer engagement of the Frawley
company will commence. Miss Mary
Van Buren, the leading woman of the
Frawley company, will be seen in the
title role of "Madame Sans Gene," the
drama of the French revolution, by
Victorien Sardou. The play is a vivid
and intensely interesting i comedy of
the time of Napoleon. "Madame Sans-
Gene," when translated, means "Mad
ame Don't-Care," this being the de
scriptive allegation bestowed upon
the sprightly heroine, who does things
in her own way, in spite of Napoleon.
Colored Republicans Indifferent.
The State . Afro-American Republican
League met at Masonic hall yesterday
afternoon. About 100 delegates were in
attendance and the meeting was more of
a jollification gathering than anything
else. None of the Republican state nom
inees was Indorsed and there seemed to
be a slight difference of opinion among
those present as to the advisability of
supporting the Republican ticket this fall.
