Optical Association Closes Ses
sion at State Capitol
"Squint," "Neurasthenia" and "Sub
jective and Objective Testing" were
themes of valuable papers read last
night, during the closing session of
the Northwestern Optical association,
at the state capitol, by Dr. J. Davidson
Lewis, St. Paul; Dr. J. A. L. Walman,
Minneapolis, and Dr. G. W. McFatrich.
respectively. Dr. Lewis said
that, although squinting children were
often punished as if their unpleasant
habit was fully under their own con
trol, the only rational remedy was
prompt resort to the oculist and the
optician. Most squints could be easily
relieved with glasses, but the difficulty
was only aggravated if the glasses
were not scientifically prescribed.
Dr. Walman-reminded his hearers of
a fact ignored by the general public
—that many cases of "nerves" ascribed
to overwork, indigestion, "general de
cline" and a multitude of other sources
were caused •*• simply by nearsighted
ness, farsightedness, astigmatism, or
other common defects, of vision. In
these cases a pair of spectacles was
better than a trip to Europe.
Dr. McFatrich's paper was exclu
sively technical instruction, which was
heartily applauded by the opticians.
Of the same nature was the lesson in
"Transpositions" set forth, at the aft
ernoon session, by Prof. L. L. De
Mars, Minneapolis. The afternoon
clinic was led by Dr. Walman.
An address upon desirable amend
ments to the existing "optical law"
was to have been delivered in the aft
ernoon by Judge Thomas Fraser, of
Rochester, Minn., the attorney of the
optical association. He telegraphed,
however, that he was detained at
Rochester by an important lawsuit.
In his place President J. W. Grainger,
of the association, a member of the
state board of examiners in optometry,
spoke briefly upon the same subject.
Had not the heavy rain and the hol
iday season prevented the attendance
of public school teachers, they might
have received the special instructions
prepared for their benefit. It was in
tended to show the teachers how they
could ascertain whether the eyesight
of their pupils was normal. Such a
test would often make clear why cer
tain children had been considered
"stupid." •- . -
At a business session yesterday
morning the opticians agreed that they
would meet the next quarter at Min
Before this session they had visited
the establishments of the Twin City
manufacturing opticians, four in St.
Paul and three in Minneapolis. A few
of the manufacturers displayed at the
convention merchandise worth $10,000.

Arkansas Croakers Intended for
Public Baths Zoo Escape
■• -J.il .i^'^' ..s,!?■' ' ?-"yy-
In Passenger Coach
Twelve huge, blear-eyed, green-skin
ned, grimy-appearing Arkansas bull
frogs will hereafter be a part of the
Harriet island zoo, having been pur
chased in St. Louis by Dr. Ohage, and
the newcomers , introduced themselves
to the St. Paul children by a stunt that
is sure to increase their popularity in
the infantile mind.
The twelve denizens of the South
ern swamps, and three more active
brothers, escaped from their cage yes
terday, which happened to be an or
dinary basket covered with paper, and
for* some minutes made things more
than lively on a we'll filled passenger
coach* of the Minneapolis & St. Louis'
while on the way to St. Paul in charge
of Inspector. Burns, ; of the health de
partment? The escape from captivity
was l made by forcing a hole through
the paper that covered the basket, fol
lowing which the fifteen kings of frog
dom proceeded' to stretch their huge
and powerful legs in a manner not
novel to frogdom,* but highly discon
certing to- the passengers.
"Wow!" yelled a woman, when she
beheld one of the ugly creatures re
clining on her lap and leering at her
as only.a frog can leer. She jumped
to her feet and the frog alighted at
the end of the next jump on the bald
head, of a male passenger some fifteen
feet away. The i jump added impetus
to the "frog, which landed with con
siderable force. **"*.'
Frog Lands on Bald Head
The male passenger, believing that
he had been grossly insulted by some
other passenger, sprang to the aisle
looking for his assailant, and came to
the conclusion that instead of finding
the miscreant he had discovered a
coach load of raving maniacs, for, by
this time, the huge frogs were hopping
in all directions, and all of the women
and some of the men were on the seats,
noisily demanding, the suppression of
the frog nuisance.
Inspector Burns was doing all in his
power to locate and capture the huge,
hopping, ''* croaking frogs, one of which
stationed himself on a seat and sent
forth one of those unearthly Arkansas
croaks, as fearsome, as the bellow of a
bull, with the result that the women
were more badly frightened, but some
of the- other male passengers interfered
with his efforts. Frightened by the
noise.and desiring to avoid being cap
tured and again thrown into the bas
ket prison, the frogs jumped as they
had never jumped before, it being
claimed by one of the passengers that
a particularly large specimen actually
jumped the full length of the car, lack
ing two • feet.
Woman Passenger Faints
The fun" was at its height when a
woman passenger, from; fear of the
grimy creatures, fainted and fell to
the floor upon which the men turned
in to capture the animals, while the
other women sought safety in another
car. While- the door was open three
of the frogs made their escape, jumped
from the train, and are doubtless roam
ing about the country somewhere
about six hours out of St. Paul, and fig
uring upon the possibility of founding
a brood of their kind in the North.
After some minutes of effort the re
maining twelve were ' captured, and
this "* time were securely tied in the
basket; and were brought into St. Paul
without further mishap. .
. Dr. • Ohage will construct a pond for
the frogs on Harriet island, and will
endeavor to as nearly as possible re
produce their natural surroundings in
the South, although he expects to have
some difficulty in securing a wire fence
sufficiently? high •to - keep - the frogs
within the domain intended for them.

buildings and districts.
In the notice sent out by the gen
eral committee, which is signed, by B.
H. Shriber as chairman,? and C. P.
Stine as secretary, it is declared that
$1,200 will be needed to make the af
fair the success that it should be, and
that the collectors ? should therefore
make it a rule to induce subscribers to
make their .donations from $5 to $10,
as the giving of smaller amounts will
entail a great amount of work to.se
cure the needed sum. All collections
are to be reported at the club rooms
daily, the money being turned over to
P. J. Metzdorf, the treasurer, and cred
it being given through.the newspapers.-

Model Convention Hall
The armory proved to be a model
convention hall. The big auditorium's
main floor? was filled comfortably •by
the thousand delegates, while the bal
cony was reserved for visitors, and a
raised platform at the rear of the
chairman's rostrum * was ; reserved for
distinguished Democrats :who were not
on the floor of the convention. The
policing of the convention hall was
excellent. Alfred MacCallum, private
secretary to Mayor Cullom, was ser
geant-at-arms and * performed his du
ties tactfully yet fully. - That the half
dozen big, burly policemen who were
detailed to prevent any serious disor
der in the hall were called on but once,
and then through a misconception *of
the trouble, is complimentary to--hls
diplomacy/in' a position requiring the
exercise of discretion*
"Duluth is a. great city," . said D.
Aberle on his return yesterday from
DuJuth. ylty is well officered and well
administered. Its police force is more
than commonly effective. ' They arc
great big stalwart men, with bony hands
and strong arms, but they yield to per
suasion when the. persuader is in the
right. That was a fine sergeant-at-arms
they had at the Duluth convention, and
he did his duty effectively and well. But
my point on the ruling of the chair was
well taken—if . not by the chair' it
self." . ".'. . ..-
Arrangements _ for y the press were
-perfect. Telegraph "and telephone fa

ience of -- the S representatives of the
Twin City and Chicago press? and ; a

at their disposal. W. E. McEwen, ed
itor of the Labor World, was at the
head of the committee. ' r* *
"To Ramsey county i belongs the
credit for.saving the day at St. Louis,"
said Albert Schaller, the Dakota coun
ty , county senator * and one of that
county's sixteen -delegates* who: stood
squarely with Ramsey, Steams, Blue
Earth and several other big delega
tions . in defeating Hearst men for dele
gates at large and in preventing in
structions at St. Louis. "Too-much"
credit cannot. be given- to the seventy
eight delegates .which Ramsey sent to

Defeat of Frank Zins
There was but one rift in the lute of
satisfaction for the anti-Hearst Dem
ocrats when the convention had ad- 1
journed, and that was the ' defeat of
Frank Zins, of Steams, as a candidate
for delegate at large. Zins had been
one of the hardest workers in the
cause of an uninstructed delegation in
his own county and through the north
ern part of the state. He had been
given a clear field for delegate at large
by the withdrawal of A. C. Weiss, of
Duluth, and Alexander McKinnon, of
Crookston, but was defeated by H. L.
Buck, of Winona, by the margin of
twenty-four votes. Mr. Buck, who is
not for Parker and possibly not for
Hearst, has a wide acquaintance
throughout the state,-gained as 'chair-'
man of the state central committee for
the past two years, and his election is
due, no doubt, to his acquaintance and
personal popularity and not because of
his expression of a choice for presiden
tial nominee. * . -
"I had rather almost anything had
happened than to lose Zins in the shuf
fle," said R. T. O'Connor, and he ex
pressed the general sentiment of the
Congressman John IJnd, from the
vote received as a candidate for dele
gate at large, has lost none of his
strength with Minnesota Democrats,
for he received 52 votes more than his
nearest associate on his own ticket—
C. D. O'Brien—76 more than Buck, 95
more than Bennett and 166 in excess
of the vote given Pike. Then, too, the
influence of the former governor and
that of L. A. Rosing, who had been
active in the pre-convention campaign,
doubtless was of material benefit to
the conservatives' ticket before the
convention for delegates at large.
There was talk at Duluth after the
convention that a contesting delegation
might go to St. Louis from the Sixth
district. The anti-Hearst delegates, it
was said, did not participate in the dis
trict convention, and their claim is that
it was irregular because of the exclu
sion from the state convention of the
Cass county .delegation. The anti-
Hearst men say that with Cass they
would have a majority of the delegates
in the district. They declare that the
votes of Steams, Crow Wing, Meeker,
Cass, Sherburne, Hubbard and Wa
dena give them a total of seventy-four
votes, as against sixty-nine cast for
the Hearst ? candidates. Charles H.
Dart, former state senator from Meek
er, and Dr. Werner Hemstead, of Crow
Wing, are spoken of in connection with
delegateships in case the dissatisfied
element determines to assert itself.
Charles E. Vasaly, of Morrison, and S.
J. Mealey, of Wright, are the delegates
chosen at the Duluth convention of the
Sixth district. ..y -:<
The result. in the Third district was
something of | a surprise. There J. W.
Cravens, of Le Sueur, and H. H. Gress,
of Northfield, were chosen as delegates.
It is said that at a conference of rep
sen tatives of the district in the fore
noon, before the convention "-had been
organized by the Hearst men, a ma
jority of the delegates had declared
for Harry Weiss, the Le Sueur banker,
as one of the delegates. When the con
vention had organized Weiss became
frightened and withdrew from the field,
and the result was that Cravens was
chosen in his place, after a number of
ballots had been taken. D. A. Adams,
of Hutchinson, was his rival candi
Had Weiss remained in the fight to
the finish he would have been chosen
and would have gone to St. Louis with
a clean majority of the delegates of his
way of | thinking on , the. presidential
question. . His friends were much dis
appointed at 'his withdrawal, especially
in view of the result in the big con
vention. ' •
Hearst Plank Is Lost
The original draft of the report of the
committee on resolutions included an
unreserved? commital of Minnesota's
delegates to the St. Louis convention
to Hearst. Copies of the report of the
committee were given out to the news
papers "in anticipation of the adoption
of the report in its entirety, but when
the convention escaped from the Lar
rabee leash, and three of the four men
who will constitute Minnesota's big
four - in" the national * convention were
found to be against the New York con
gressman, the Hearst managers at Du
luth were willing to listen to reason.
C. D. O'Brien walked over to the St.
Louis delegation and confronted.
Charles D'Autremont, their leader, but
a personal friend of the St. Paul man,
though they were radically apart on
the question that tore the convention
asunder. * . . y?.
"Don't try to put that Hearst resolu
tion through this convention," Charley,"
O'Brien said to him, "for if you make
the attempt you will precipitate a fight
here that will be memorable. We've got
the votes now to prevent their adoption
and we will call upon them to turn the
resolutions down." -y.?
? D'Autremont conferred with* some of
his associates. It was pointed out that
it was better to make no effort to in
struct than to offer the resolution and
lose on the .floor of the convention, and
the Hearst men then and there decided
that .they would make no attempt to
force resolutions on the convention. In
line with the decision, when Chairman
T. T. Hudson read his report, there was
no reference to Hearst in the resolu
tions. "-' Had there been there would
have been a bear fight, for the anti-
Hearst men had absolute control of the
convention, .that Aye hours earlier_ had
voted for *| Hearst's candidate for tem
porary chairman. y ?. ;
} Former Senator Jay, La Due, of Le
Sueur county; one of the oldest and
most active of Minnesota Democrats,
was much pleased at | the * outcome of
the convention. ? »
"C? D. O'Brien's strategy and oratory
and - John Lind's.. popularity, have left
us in this state in pretty good shape,"
he said after the convention. "I have
nothing against Judge Parker as a can
didate except that he is handicapped by
the nature of some of his supporters. I
rather expect to see Mayor McClellan,
of New - York, the nominee of the St.
Louis convention." -:■-.- ?.

SEVERE RAIN STORM
Half-inch of Wetness Fails In
One of the most severe rain storms
of the season occurred yesterday aft
ernoon shortly before 2 o'clock, when
a precipitation of half an inch was
registered within fifteen minutes. The
downfall of rain was accompanied by
a high wind and quantities of hail
which broke windows in the western
end of the city.
The storm was merely local, accord
ing to Weather Observer XV. E. Oliver.
The disturbance was usual for this
time of the year and will be followed
by cooler weather today.
The wind, which attained a high ve
locity, did some damage about the
city. Branches of trees were torn off
and a stretch of sidewalk on Como
avenue, near Dale street, was lifted
and carried into the street.
The total precipitation for the day
was .68. Most of* the rain fell early in
the afternoon, though there was a
short shower in the morning and an
other late in the afternoon. *?•
