So There'll Be no Bathing in
Lake Phalen.
Public baths will not be installed at
Lake Phalen this summer, according to
a decision reached by the park board
yesterday. "
Commissioner Earl reported that the
superintendent of parks had made a
careful investigation and had found
that Round lake, the small body of wa
ter adjoining Lake Phalen and In which
it was proposed to allow the bathing,
has a sticky mud bottom, making it un
fit for the purpose.
Besides this, it was evident that the
commissioners have little hope of se
curing street railway accommodations
to the park the coming season, this
feature also discouraging the proposed
installation of the baths.
Jacob Barnett, who controls the
amusement features at the park, was
present, and said that he would be will
ing to amend his contract with the
board, leaving out the baths, if the
board would remit the $500 he was ex
pected to pay in 1904 for the privilege.
The superintendent was instructed to
prepare an amended contract, in ac
cord with the proposition, to be pre-
Bented at the next meeting of the board.

Elks' Show Is Assured Big At
One of the events of the season at
the box office of the Metropolitan thea
ter is the opening of the ticket sale for
the annual entertainment of the Elks.
It is so because of the early rush for
choice of seats, and the sale which
opened yesterday was no exception to
the rule.

hemia," will be presented under the
Elks' management Thursday, Friday
and Saturday evenings. Although it
had been announced that the sale
would not open until 8 o'clock yester
day morning, the first would-be pur
chaser presented himself to get in line
as early as Saturday morning. He and
others who followed were provided
with numbered tickets entitling them
to their respective places when the line
should form. Sunday evening at 8
o'clock. When the box office opened
Monday morning the line was a long
one, and although additional men were
placed at the counter the entire force
was kept busy until late in the day.
There was a steady sale until well into
the afternoon, but because of the active
efforts of the Elks' committee to pre
vent speculation in the seats the num
ber disposed of at the opening was not
quite so large as last year. Purchases
this year were confined to small lots,

Health Departmc t Takes Aggressive
Action to Suppress It.
Yesterday morning Coroner Miller
was called to the home of Peter Kil
lian, 729 Jefferson avenue, to investi
gate the circumstances attending the
death of Joseph A. Killian, aged six
teen months.
The child had appeared ill. Mrs., Kil
lian gave it a glass of milk, and almost
immediately the baby gasped for
breath. A physician was called prompt
ly, but found the child dead.
After making an autopsy the coroner
declared that the infant had died of
malignant diphtheria, and informed
the health department. A representa
tive of that department undertook a
second examination, which bore out the
opinion of Dr. Miller. The Killian
house was at once placed in quarantine
and every measure was taken to pre
vent the spread of the disease.
During the day two more cases were
brought to the notice of the health de
partment. One was that of Albert
Faschenbauer, 656 Audubon street,
aged seven years; the other patient
was John Willogrrand, 340 College ave
nue, aged four.
A student at Concordia college was
also reported stricken with the same
disease. He was removed to the city
hospital. Health Commissioner Ohage
said yesterday that diphtheria was not
epidemic in the city, but that several
cases had been reported recently.

Committee on Streets Turns
Down Schurmeier's Plea for
Another Postponement.
Before the committee on streets of
the assembly yesterday recommended
the passage of the contract for the
paving of Rosabel street with asphalt,
H. C. Schurmeier had made an inef
fectual effort to secure delay, and had
been in turn roundly toasted for what
the other members of the committee
termed his "abstruse and unexplain
able conduct in regard to the pay-
Mr. Schurmeier opened the discus
sion by asserting that he had deter
mined not to act as a member of the
committee on the occasion, but ap
peared as an interested property own
"My reason for this is that I have
been subject to unjust newspaper
criticism," he said. "I have, and have
had, no intention of delaying the pav
ing of this street, and will guarantee
the members of the committee that if
they will reject this contract the work
on the paving will begin by May 1. I
have seen all the property owners
and we have agreed that brick is the
best pavement for the street. Brick
will cost us $4 a running foot; the
present bid on asphalt is $5 a foot,
and we would prefer sandstone to as
phalt at $6 a foot. But we want brick,
and ask readvertisement, being sure
that we would save $1,000. If this
contract is put through it will cost me
$500 more than brick."
"When this question came up a year
ago on an order reading for sandstone
you demanded asphalt, did you not,
Mr. Schurmeier?" asked Mr. Van
"I wanted brick, but the committee
would not listen to me, and I accepted
asphalt, but did not think the price
would be so high," was the answer,
the speaker continuing: "The city
council has passed a resolution pledg
ing that it would not accept a contract
for asphalt when the price is more
than $2.20 per square yard, and ask
that this rule be carried out, as this
contract will cost $2.25 a square yard."
Stands Against Further Delay.
"Mr. Schurmeier," said Chairman
Doran, "it strikes me that you have
three times been accommodated in this
matter, and that it is about time to
call a halt if the street is ever to be
paved. You did not object to the
final order when it was passed. Why
try to delay it now?"
"We now prefer brick, because there
Is a grade on the street for. one reason,
and further because brick is much
"And brick is not so slippery," in
terjected Peter Berkey, another inter
ested property owner.
"Slippery!" ejaculated Dr. Whitcomb.
"Brick is more slippery than asphalt. I
have been driving a horse in St. Paul
for twelve years and know what I am
talking about. The paving of this street
has already been delayed, and I move
that the committee recommend the pas
sage of the contract."
Mr. "Van Slyke seconded the motion.
Mr. Schurmeier again came to the
front with objections, pledging his hon
or that he would in no way delay the
paving of the street, declaring that "it
is a necessary improvement and must
be made. The objection is the price
and the consequent desire of the prop
erty owners to save $1,000."
"To all of which I must object," said
Mr. Wheeler. "It seems to me that, this
question has been long enough under
consideration. I do not care' to take
chances on further delay, even with
such a pledge."
"I feel thfr same way," commented
Chairman Doran.
"And I have promised the interested
citizens to vote in favor of the con
tract," said Mr. Van Slyke.
Messrs. Doran, Whitcomb, Van
Slyke and Wheeler voted in favor of
the contract; Mr. Rosen voted in the
negative, and Mr. Schurmeier was ex
Judge Bazille Cannot Follow
French Law.
Where two persona drown in the
same accident, and there ia no way of
telling which drowns first, the law pre
sumes that they died at the same time.
At least this is the manner in which
the law is interpreted by Probate Judge
Bazille, who yesterday decided the
suits brought by the heirs of Mr. and
MrsTW. A. Carlson.
Mr. and Mrs. Carlson were the oc
cupants of a boat which was capsized
at White Bear lake last summer. Both
of them drowned. They owned prop
erty worth $6,000, which the heirs of
each attempted to secure by showing
that there had been a difference In the
moments of the two deaths.
The heirs of Mr. Carlson claimed the
property, insisting that he had sur
vived his wife; the heirs of Mrs. Carl
son made a similar claim, Judge Ba
zille holds that both husband and wife
died at the same time, and ordered the
property divided between the heirs of
each of them. One-half of the estate
goes to Mrs. Carlson's mother, the
other half to Mr. Carlson's father.
Mrs. John Lunkenheimer Secures Di
vorce From Former Labor Leader.
Judge Bunn granted yesterday to
Mrs. Emma C. Lunkenheimer a divorce
from John Lunkenheimer, to whom
she was married last fall.
The plaintiff charges desertion, al
leging that her husband left her within
three days after their marriage to run
away to Chicago with another woman.
Lunkenheimer was chief marshal of
the last Labor day parade. His mar
riage and subsequent disappearance
took place shortly after .participating
in this celebration. The divorce papers
were served upon him in Chicago.
Yesterday's session of the park board

Joseph A. Wheelock was again elect

intendent of parks. The salary of the

This was done after William Etarnm

President of the Park Board
Sends a Resolution on Riv
er Boulevard Extension.
From far-away California Joseph
A. Wheelock, president of the board of
park commissioners,, introduced a vit
riolic resolution relative to the Mis
sissippi ri^er boulevard from Watson
avenue to West Seventh street, at yes
terday's meeting of the board. An
swer to the charges was made in some
what the same spirit by B. H. Schriber,
attorney for seme -of the property
owners t who pleaded so strenuously
for postponement of action that the
whereases and the resolution, as well
as the order abandoning the project,
were laid -over for future considera
After detailing the fact that the
property owners on two miles of the
proposed boulevard had willingly do
nated the land, Commissioner Whee
lock asserts concerning those under
consideration^, "that the said owners,
or the most of them, had appeared be
fore the board of public workg in per
sonr or- through attorneys to protest,
and have demanded exorbitant prices
for their land, far in excess of its mar
ket value, except as added value has .
been given it by the prospect of the
proposed improvement."
This was thought decidediy severe
by those representing the owners ot
land" it is proposed to take, but they
had no knowledge of what _ was to
come. The clerk continued to read,
while the three commissioners present,
Messrs. Aberje, Earl and Hamm, smil
ed broadly:
Resolved, That the order for the con
demnation of the strip of land for the
Mississippi river boulevard No. 2, from
Watson avenue to near the Fort Snelling
bridge, is hereby revoked, to the end that
all proceedings thereunder by the board
of public works "be discontinued, and that
! the project of extending the said boulevard
from Watson to Snelling bridge be aban
And it is hoped that the success of the
protesting property owners and their at
torneys, in thus defeating an improve
ment of the gceatest importance to the
city, and of the greatest benefit to them,
may fill'them with the satisfaction due to
the triumph of a purblind greed over any
intelligent concern to their own interests,
or a decent regard for those of the com
munity at large.
Makes Vigorous Reply.
This rebuke from the president of
the park board brought Attorney
Schriber to his feet in ah instant. In
part he said: .".
I do not know whether I should an
swer such a vicious resolution. It has
been my duty at various times, generally
as an attorney, to appear before this
board, and other boards of the cits', but
this is the first time within my knowledge
where' attorneys or interested property
owners have - been characterized in such
a yicious manner, and without, to my
mind, any justification in this, instance.
This resolution is eminently unfair and
unjust, so far as my client and myself
are concerned. It "is proposed to take
from Mr. Davidson, whom I represent,
twenty-seven -acres of land, for which the
board of; public works proposes to allow
$2,100. We have made,, no demand of a
definite nature, and have merely said in
formally what'!wc thought the property
was -worth. We are. willing to consider
any proposition. But if you gentlemen
desire to proceed further in this matter
I would urge that you do not pass this
resolution, to the language of which I
must again .object hi the most strenuous
manner. It would be- unfair if this reso
lution should be spread on your minutes
and become a part of the public records
of the city,' to' be read in future years
and commented upon as an example of
"purblind greed."
Resolution Not Acted On.
There was a running discussion be
tween the members of the board and
Mr. Schriber, who persistently referred
to the "unfair and unjust" resolution
that was before the board. Mr. Aberle
seemed to' be of the opinion that Mr.
Wheelock was justified in using the
invective, asking:
"Is it not a fact* Mr. Schriber, that
you stated thai.jjou .wanted $80,000 for
the property that the board of public
w.orks allowed 3$&10O for?"
."What I said to the board was that
I considered the property is worth
$80,000, and I will amend it here by
saying that I believe it is worth $100,
--000. In places all the land owned by
my client is) taken, while at other
points small, irregular pieces are left.
In saying that the land is worth $100,
--000 I do not mean that there is any
purpose of attempting to secure any
such amount. We merely refuse to ac
cept the $2,100 offered by the board of
public works."
It was decided that in the absence of
Commissioner Wheelock the resolution
should not by-further considered,' and
the question of .abandoning the boule
vard was postponed to some future
date, with this parting shot from Mr.
"If that resolution is adopted I feel
sure that it will be necessary to aban
don the proposed improvement." -

Reorganized Association Holds
Its First Annual Meeting-
President's Address.
The successful work of the Neigh
borhood house, at 153 Robertson street,
corner of Indiana avenue, West Side,
was manifested yesterday afternoon in
reports presented to the first annual
meeting of the reorganized Neigh
borhood House association. A dozen
members of the association, chiefly
women, gathered at the house to hear
the annual reports of officers and an
address by President Scholle,. and to
choose a board of managers. The
present board was re-elected.
The report of Treasurer W. B.
Geery, read by President Scholle, an
nounced that the expenses since the
existing management of the house
was established, Oct. 1, 1903, had been
$800.69, and that the annual expenses
would probably not exceed $1,500, of
which the rent for the twelve-room
building now occupied would be $400.
The receipts had included $943.80 from
subscriptions. The balance on hand
was $159.
Chinese Are Presbyterians.
The "resident" manager of the
House, Mrs. M. M. Pentland, reported
that the association was working
among 600 people in 125 families.
There were eight Syrian families, fif
teen French families, ten Scandina
vian, four German, two Chinese, ten
Irish families, with an indefinite num
ber of Russian, Polish, Bohemian and
Roumanian families. Various relig
ions were represented, the Syrians be
ing Greek Catholics, and the Chinese
The enrollment in the night school
was 115; in the sewing school, 188.
The very efficient teachers at the
night school were seven seniors from
the Humboldt high school. Among the
special branches of instruction were
found piano playing, singing and
dancing. The membership of the
Mothers' club had increased from five
to fourteen. The patrons of the libra
ry now numbered ninety-two. Four
afternoon "parties" had been given
for the girls, six evening parties for
the young people. The prospective
functions included an orthodox Jew
ish wedding to be celebrated at the
house March 22.
Mrs. Pentland suggested that the
association should enlist the services
of a visitor who might also act as a
probation officer^
President Scholle, giving the result
of personal inquiry among the man
agers of neighborhood homes in Chi
cago and the East, said that these
"social settlements," "Hull houses" or
"neighborhood houses," had been
brought into being by the immigration
to America of the dissatisfied, helpless
and persecuted peoples of Europe. In
dealing with such foreigners it was
primarily important "to convince them
that we have no designs upon their
money, their children or their faith."
Object Is to Focus Social Life.
The work of the neighborhood house
had assumed such importance that it
has been made the subject of special
instruction in Eastern colleges. That
work was divided, according to local
needs, among kindergartens, "night
schools, gymnasiums, manual train
ing schools, mothers' clubs, cooking
schools, men's and boys' clubs, social
entertainments and the like; the ob
ject of the house being, in the words
of Jane Addams, to "focus the social
life of the neighborhood, to bring to
bear upon it the results of cultivation
and training."
"But we must impress upon the un
initiated," continued Mr. Scholle,
"that all this is done not for charity,
a most abhorrent word to these people,
but for remuneration. Everyone pays
5 or 10 cents for the advantages of
By visiting in the houses of the
neighborhood —an important branch of
the work —the visitors "establish the
natural relationship of friends ready to
offer sympathy and advice, or more
substantial aid, in any time of trou
"At meetings of the men's clubs in
the house the men are brought to cul
tivate their own independent thought
on political questions and to act in
politics as their conscience dictates.
The social gatherings at the house af
ford opportunity for the young people
to enjoy themselves under careful su
pervision against excess and license."
Keeps Girls Out of Dance Halls.
"This is especially important in St.
Paul," commented Mr. Scholle, "where
so many of our working girls are ad
dicted to visiting the dance halls on
Wabasha and Rice streets. There the
young women are exposed to all sorts
of temptation, especially to association
with the soldiers from Fort Snelling,
who have nothing to gain or lose by
their conduct, and who are undesirable
people to have around at any time,
except when they are fighting."
The benefits of the settlement work
upon the workers were acknowledged
by Mr. Scholle.
"Ever since the advent of the kin
dergarten," he said, "it has been well
established that for motherhood there
is no better training than a year or
two of active work and teaching
among the little ones; and so there is
no better training for the future use
fulness, both socially and ethically,
than that learned in the neighborhood
Mr. Scholle thought that the neigh
borhood houses might well be estab
lished "in different parts of the city to
take practical control of all those in
their precincts who need help physic
ally, morally or socially."
The directors re-elected at the con
clusion of Mr. Scholle's address were:
Rev. Ambrose McNulty, Rev. R. W.
Boynton, Dr. I. L. Rypins, Rev. Theo
dore Sedgwick; Mesdames John
Wharry, Benjamin Goodkind, J. H.
BuUard; Messrs. Gustave Scholle, L.

Ames, Walter L. Chapin, Prank
Schlick Jr., A. D. S. Johnston, W. B.
Geery, Oscar Taylor. L. P. Ordway,
Joseph Elsinger, A. Slimmer. The offi
cers of the association, elected last Oc
tober for a term of one year, are Gus
tave Scholle, president; Dr. I. L. Ry
pins, Rev. R- W. Boynton and Rev.
Theodore Sedgwick, vice presidents;
W. B. Geery, treasurer, and Mrs. J.

Ex-Soldiers Petition the Gov
ernor to Make the Act a Pa
triotic Demonstration.
Veterans of the Minnesota regiments
that served in the Civil war, the Sioux
Indian outbreak of 1862 and the war
with Spain, have joined in a petition
to Gov. Van Sant that the removal of
the battle flags and other military
relics from the old capitol to the new
one be observed with fitting cere
monies. ' .
This movement originated among
members of the local G. A. R. posts, as
was noted in Th c Globe some weeks
ago, but they have feU that all of the
Minnesota veterans should participate
in the demonstration, and have there
fore asked the state officers to take
The petition follows:

Minnesota state, capitol building and its
occupation by yourself and the several
departments, of. the state government, be

into the military service of the United
States for service in the war of the re
bellion, the Indian war of 1562 and the
war with Spain* are of the opinion that
the transfer of the battle flags from the
old to the new building should be made
the occasion of special ceremonies which
would commemorate the thrilling events
in which they were conspicuously em
ployed; and also present an object les
son that would inspire the hearts of our
youths with increased love -of country
and loyalty to our national flag, known
throughout the world as the symbol of
liberty and free government.
For the purpose of carrying this ob
ject into effect, we do, therefore, respect
fully request and petition that you will
appoint a general committee of arrange
ments, to consist of one or more members
from each of the military organizations
referred to and such additional members
as you may deem fitting; that such com
mittee shall make, subject to your ap
proval all necessary arrangements for
the transfer of the flags and to invite
the survivors of such military organiza
tions to act as guards of honor on that
occasion; also to invite Grand Army posts,
other organizations and ex-Union soldiers
and sailors, the Minnesota National
Guard and the United States troops to
participate in the parade as an escort.

Represses Generosity of Bride-
groom Who Carries a Roll
of Coarse Money.
Judge Gallick's reputation as a dip
lomat dropped several points yesterday
afternoon, just after he had said the
words which united Charles D. Frank
lin and. Miss Ella D. Norty in matri
For two hours after the episode the
;ourt commissioner walked through
the corridors of the city hall and
called the attention of his friends to
himself as an example of "buttinski"
disaster. He had lost a fat marriage
fee, and he had not regained his usual
good nature at closing-up time.
When Mr. Franklin and Miss Norty
entered the court commissioner's office
and announced their desire to get
married, the judge carefully pulled
down the blinds and performed the
ceremony. He did it in such an artis
tic manner that the groom appeared
well pleased, and when the judge had
finished the bridegroom tossed a half
dollar on the table and told the judgo
to "have a smoke."
He Speaks Too Soon.
Judge Gallick misunderstood his
good intentions. Thinking this was all
the man intended to pay him for the
marriage service, he pushed the half
dollar back towards the groom and
informed him that he would have to
pay the legal fee.
"Oh, I intended to do that, of course,"
said the man, who had already taken
from his pocket a roll of bills large
enough to stop up a six-inch water
main. "How much is it?"
It was with some effort that the judge
found voice to name the legal fee; hia
eyes were fastened on the roll. When
he finally- did so, Mr. Franklin ex
pressed his—surprise at the cheapness
of the court commissioner's services,
paid the amount asked, and left the.
roonu He had even taken with hijui
the half dollar /which the judge had
pushed back to him.
"Thank you ever so much, judge.'
said the groom, as he smiled over hia
shoulder at the crestfallen official.
"I think I need a guardian," said
Commissioner Gallick, when he had
recovered sufficiently to speak. "There
would have been at least $10 in th>t
marriage if I had kept my mouth
Shut." : ■

Saloon and Pedestrians Robbed by
Same Two Men.
About 1 o'clock Monday morning
Michael Simmons, of 560 L.afond street,
and T. Downs, 799 Thomas street, were
stopped at Dale and Thomas streets
by two masked men who said simply.
"Cough up!" One of the highwaymen
held a couple of revolvers at the vic
tims' heads while the other Turpin ex
amined their pockets, taking $20 in
'cash and two watches.
From the description furnished, the
police believe that the same robbers
had held up Henry Janz's saloon on
University avenue half an hour earlier.
At Mr. Janz's "place," University av
enue and Grotto street, two/nen se
cured but $7.
When the robbers entered the saloon
a crowd of Sunday carousers fled like
Russians leaving Dalny. The two
masked strangers found $7 in the till
and nothing in the pockets of the bar
tender. The police have arrested two
men believed to resemble the robbers.
The easiest way to register is to do it
when you go to the primary to vote
next Tuesday.
