In the event of the court holding

In reviewing the past year he called at
tention to the fact that inevitable mis
takes had been made, such as are bound
to occur in all business houses, and he
urged the necessity of taking advantage
of experience, and improving upon errors.
"The successful man as well as the suc
cessful house is the one that takes lessons
from experience and for each year that
passes makes fewer errors. This is a
principle I heartily recommend to every
man here present."
"The large dealer," he continued, "is
constantly exposed to disadvantages, in
that he is in a time when there is great
demand for goods, and when the markets
are advancing often unable to procure all
the goods needed to supply customers.
Then he is, on the other hand, apt to
suffer from decline when- he has his
shelves filled in anticipation of a contiiw
uation of the rush. He must, if he would
prosper, carefully watch the condition of
trade. We have been enjoying good busi
ness for the last five years, but it is only
too sure that this will not last always, so
we must proceed with caution and not
get caught in the depression."
After advising the salesmen to devote
time and energy toward developing the
trade in the various side lines of the
house, instead of confining themselves to
merely staple articles, he concluded with
the declaration that a business house
owes a large measure of its success to its
traveling salesmen, and congratulated
them on the prospects with which the
coming year will open.

Bill Making It Unlawful to Assign Fu

The salary loan agencies, commonly
called "10 percenters," may find Min
nesota an unprofitable field in which to
do business before another year.
Taking their cue from a Chicago
judge, who has lately decided that the
assignment of future salary is in viola
tion of the fifteenth amendment of the
constitution, which is in opposition to
servitude, several lawmakers propose
to introduce in the next legislature a
bill prohibiting the traffic.
The bill will make it unlawful for
any person to assign future wages, and
this, it is claimed, will drive the loan
agencies out of business. The rail
roads favor such a bill as the "10 per
centers" give them more trouble than
any other institution in the garnishee

DR. OHACE WINS
PARK BOARD FAVORS HIS RE
QUEST FOR CONDEMNATION
OF WEST SIDE FILL
SAFE APPROACH TO
PUBLIC BATHS ASSURED
Omaha Railway Is Agreeable Provided
Its Tracks and Future Extension Are
Not Interfered With, and Will Con
tribute $2,500 Toward the Expense
—Hatchet Is Buried.
Health Commissioner Ohfige wins.
His request for the condemnation of
the triangular fill on the West side as
a land approach to the baths has been
agreed to, and, in addition, he is to
receive $2,500 from the Omaha railroad
towards its conversion into an ap
This was what the board of park
commissioners accomplished last night
and the the amicable manner in which
it was brought about is look
ed upon as a long step toward the
burying of the hatchet and the solu
tion of the difficulty which attended
the Harriet island approach.
The meeting last night was attend
ed by representatives of nearly every
interest involved, including the Com
mercial club and the Omaha "railroad,
and while, there were a few of them
not in sympathy with Dr. Ohage's
plans they had to give way before the
force of his arguments.
Prefacing the decision of the board
and its request to the engineering de
partment for plats of the ground,
which step is preliminary to the regu
lar condemnation proceedings, Health
Commissioner Ohage made known his
wants and the concessions he was will-
ing to make for harmony's sake.
Dr. Ohage's Concession.
In return for the condemnation of
the triangular fill and aid from the
Omaha road in the shape of $2,500
towards the cost of an approach over
it, he said he was willing to forego the
condemnation of the lots which would
bar the way of the Omaha road in its
announced traffic agreement with the
Great Western and to omit from the
proceedings the taking of Raspberry
island. He granted this concession to
the Omaha, he said, because he
desired, if possible, to bury the hatchet
and remove the prevailing opinion that
he was an enemy to the commercial in
terests of the West side.
"I have been wrongly censured in
this respect," said the health commis
sioner. "I say plant potatoes where
ever you can, but if there is any room
for flowers put in a few of them, too.
There are a few people who have be
come imbued with the Wea that this
insignificant, ill-smelling fill is neces
sary to St. Paul's commercial advance
ment. Why, there is enough of vacant
ground on the West side to hold the
entire city of Pittsburg."
Pierce Butler, as the legal represen
tative of the Omaha road, said his
company desired to be understood as
a friend of the baths and was willing
to meet Dr. Ohage on any proposition
that would give the safe approach he
was asking for. The condemnation
of the fill, he informed the board, -was
perfectly agreeable to his company.
The only thing desired was that the
condemnation proceedings be amended
so as not to interfere with any of its
tracks, or curtail the proposed exten
sion of the line to South St. Paul,
which will be made via the Great
Western tracks at a point near Star
Omaha's $2,500 Proposition.
The proposition to give $2,500 to
ward the cost of constructing the ap
proach was made by Judge Wilson at
the last meeting- of the board and was
repeated by Mr. Butler last night.
Judge Wilson's promise to recommend
to the company that it give $2,500 was
based on the scheme of a wooden walk
or pile bridge on the outside of the
tracks, and Mr. Butler so informed
vthe members, but he did not say that
it would be insisted on. Others, how
ever, declared they had heard Judge
Wilson say he was not partial to any
B. H. Schriber and A. K. Pruden,
representing the Commercial club,
spoke briefly against the condemnation
of the fill as curtailing advantages for
' manufacturing interests. They wanted
a fill on the outside of the tracks, but
owing to the establishment of the har
bor line so close to the rip-rap, this
was shown to be impossible. They
suggested the extension of the harbor
line out into the river a short dis
tance, but it did nbt meet with the ap
proval of Dr. Ohage.
The Trades and Labor council had
representatives present and they spoke
briefly for the condemnation. Mem
bers of the West Side Improvement
association were present, but did not
The proceedings last night, while by
no means ending the matter, are be
lieved to be a long step toward the
Bolution of the bath approach diffi
culty. Both sides seemed willing to
make concessions in order that the con
troversy might be closed and the park
board encouraged them.
Dr. Ohage Is Pleased.
In bringing about the agreement
reached last night Commissioner Dan
iel Aberle was a leading factor. In
fact he made a personal effort to see
that Dr. Ohage obtained what he has
been long fighting for and that the in
terests, of the other side were not dis
turbed. On his motion the old con
demnation proceedings were rescinded
and the call for new plans instituted.
Prior to the session he made a per
sonal canvass among the interests
represented and secured their consent
to the concessions proposed.
Dr. Ohage's intention is to have the
fill raised and terraced, thus giving
an approach to the baths from the
Wabasha street bridge, that will per
mit the reaching of the island without
any effort or fatigue. He was greatly
pleased with the proceedings last night
and left remarking, "It is a great vic
WILL SPEND CHRISTMAS
WITH HIS FAMILY
One of Missouri's Imprisoned Judges Lef
Out for Awhile.
KANSAS CITY, Mo., Dec. 23.—Judge
Thomas Nevitt, of St. Clair county, Ohio,
who has been in jail in Marysville for
failing to obey a mandate of the United
States court, was released today by Judge
Phillips so he could spend Christmas with
his family. After the holidays he will
return to the Marysville jail.
Judge Nevitt is the presiding judge of
the county court of St. Clair. He has
been in jail ever since he was elected.
! For many years the judges of that court
ihave refused to vote money to pay rail
iroad bonds, for which a judgment was
obtained in the federal court, and Judge
Phillips has kept them in jail.
I A week ago Judge Nevitt wrote to
Judge Phillips and begged. the privilege
of going home for Christmas. He prom
ised Judge Phillips that .he. would not
hold court in St. Clair county, but would
return after the holidays.

Macadamizing xf West Seventh Street
Beyond Tuscarora May Go Over
b for a Year.
Residents of West Seventh street,
beyond Tuscanora, it is understood,
will fight the proposition to macadam
ize that portion of the thoroughfare
unless the city at large comes forward
handsomely | with a sum of money to
pay for all the street intersections.
The conference committee and the
council,, when the budget was under
consideration, contributed $6,500 to
ward the worki but this, the property
owners contend, is not sufficient. This
amount was baaed on the macadamiz-
! ing of one-daalf of the street and the
i surfacing of the other with gravel.
The amount the property owners de
mand is $15;000.
In view of the improvements being
made at Fort Snelling just now, and
the fear that the trade will be diverted
to other centers, mercantile interests
generally have been hoping that the
work would be one of the first things
done next year, but it seems hardly
The street beyond Tuscarora, where
the paving ends, is eighty feet wide,
and the property owners, in view of
the cost, do not want to authorize the

STREET CAR COMPANY
WILL FURNISH MUSIC
Park Board Renews Agreement With It
for Attractions and Frivilejes
. The park board renewed last night its
agreement with the street car company
for the furnishing of music for Como Park
the company to have the refreshment
privileges. The street car company's plans
for the new loop and track approach at
Como park were approved. The com
pany will commence work in the spring.
The board tabled the proposition to con
demn one of the numerous triangular
blocks on West Seventh street, for the
benefit of St. Stanislaus church. There
was so much opposition to the triangle
being converted into a park that the board
decided to wash its hands of it.
The block fronts a hall and several
handsome buildings lately erected by the
congregation, and the removal of unsight
ly surrounding structures was greatly de
sired. The cost it was estimated would
not be far short of $10,000.
