Delegates Perfect Permanent
Organization at Ciosing Ses
sion and Elect Officers for the
Year—Ritual of the Order Is
Fxemplifled and Meeting Is
Addressed by A. E. Partridge,
(National Grand Secretary—
White Bear Aerie Lands First
Prize for Best Showing In
Line of March
The first annual state convention of
the Fraternal Order of Eagles of Min
nesota, which convened in St. Paul
Friday, was brought to a close last
night by a parade through the princi
pal business streets of the city, in
which a number of bands and several
hundred Eagles from all parts of the
Btate participated.
The next convention of the order will
be held in Duluth, the city at the head
of the lakes winning out after a spir
ited contest. Morris delegates worked
hard for the next convention, but the
Duluth rooters secured the stronger
following and when it came to a vote
the Zenith City was chosen.
Yesterday's business session was
confined largely to routine business.
No session was held in the forenoon,
but in the afternoon a permanent or
ganization was effected, with officers
as predicted in yesterday's Globe.
Joseph H. Ellis, of Minneapolis, was
named as chairman, and W. J. Wal
dron, of St. Paul, secretary. The ritual
of the order was exemplified tit yes
terday's business session and the re
ports of a number of committees were
read. A feature of the meeting was an
address upon the good of the order by
A. E. Partridge, grand secretary of the
order, who came from Kansas City to
attend the meeting.
The parade last night, although
nearly an hour late in starting, was
watched by thousands of people, the
line of march being crowded.
The parade, which formed at Rice
park, was to have started at 8 o'clock,
but owing to a delay in the arrival of
the Minneapolis contingent, it was al
most 9 o'clock before the body moved.
The Stillwater aerie, headed by a band,
and with a hundred members in line,
had the position of honor, but the
"White Bear aerie, but recently organ
ized, had more members in line and
easily carried off the first prize for the
outside aerie making the best showing.
The second prize went to Stillwater."
The St. Paul and Minneapolis aeries
made splendid showings, but were
barred from competition for the prizes.
The distinct feature of the parade was

Lights Are Ordered for Riverside and
Automobile Owners Hope
It is now believed that the park
board will rescind its order prohibiting
automobiles on the Riverside driveway.
The board of public works has ordered
the gasoline lamp contractor to place
twelve lamps on the driveway, between
Marshal and Summit avenues, at points
where sharp turns are made, and when
this is done it is said automobiles will
be permitted on the driveway. A re
cent order of the park board barred
automobiles from the driveway.
Verdict Against Great Western
A verdict for $3,750 was returned in
the district court yesterday against the
Chicago Great Western in favor of
Percy D. Godfrey, as administrator of
the estate of Patrick Martin. Martin
was killed by a Great Western freight
train in the Minnesota Transfer yards,
and suit was brought against the Great

company. The transfer company was

Winner of Prize in the Eagles' Big
neapolis, which headed the Mill City
delegation. This crack organization of
little fellows, in their neat red uni
forms, brought forth cheers all along
the route. About 100 Minneapolis
Eagles were in line.
The St. Paul aerie. 300 strong,
brought up the rear, and the members,
in their duck trousers and hats, show
ed well. They were headed by the
Minnesota State band.
After covering the line of march the
parade disbanded at Rice park, from
which point it started, and the rest
of the evening was given over to the
visiting delegates to do as they pleased,
there being nothing on the programme
for last night aside from the parade.
In the award of special prizes to be
awarded to those participating in the
parade, Charles B. Dewitt carried off
the $1.50 offered for the most homely
Eagle in line, and Peter J. Miesen was
voted the handsomest man in the lot,
for which a prize of $2.40 was offered.
Norman Scheffhaussen carried off the
prize of 3 cents per inch for the tallest
Eagle in line,- and the prize of 1 cent
per pound for the heaviest Eagle went
to Joseph Wagner, and cost the com
mittee something in excess of $3.There
was a prize also offered for the light
est Eagle, but the prize committee was
informed that^the contestant for this
prize had blown away while the parade
was turning a corner.
While the convention proper came
to a close last night, many of the dele
gates remained in the city, and will at
tend the second annual picnic of the
St. Paul aerie, to be held at White
Bear today. Special trains will carry
the crowds from St. Paul to the picnic
grounds, and a large attendance is ex

St". Paul aerie was a year ago, at Jor

Improvement Organizations of
CMy to Have a Centra!
Steps toward the merging of all of
the improvement associations in the
city were taken at a meeting held in
the council chamber of the city hall
yesterday afternoon, which was at
tended by delegates from the various
associations in the different wards. At
this meeting a committee of one from
each improvement association wa3
named to outline plans for a perma
nent organization, and the report of
this committee will be received at a
meeting to be held at the city hall Fri
day afternoon, July 8.
The federation plan for improvement
associations was suggested by the
Sixth Ward Improvement association,
and it was through the efforts of this
association that yesterday's meeting
was held. Some time ago the Sixth
Ward association approved of the plan
for merging the various associations,
as suggested by E. H. Wood, and cards
were sent to each association in the
city, asking that delegates be sent to
the meeting to be held yesterday. An
evidence of the manner in which the
suggestion was received by the vari
ous associations was the appearance at
the meeting of delegates from every
association, with the exception of one
or two, and in these instances it was
explained that the associations had not
held a meeting since the notices had
been sent out.
Officers Are Named
J. M. Hawthorne, of the Sixth ward,
was chosen as chairman of the meet
ing, and Theodore J. Gronewald secre
tary, and while the meeting was called
more for the purpose of arranging for
a permanent organization, a number of
the delegates took advantage of the
opportunity to tell of the good that
could be accomplished by a central or
E. H. Wood explained the objects of
the meeting, and said he thought a
central body would serve to keep the
different ward associations from dying
out, and he believed it would be of
much value in securing concessions
desired by the associations. He said
there w*as nothing of a political na
ture aimed at by the promoters and
hoped that such a strong body would
be organized that it could go before
the council and ofher bodies and wield
some influence.
Chairman Hawthorne thought the
central organization could do much
good in keeping tab on taxation, as
sessments and other matters of gen
eral interest to the public.
J. W. Shepherd, representing the
Merriam Park Improvement associa
tion, told what had been accomplished
by the old Merriam Park union a few
years ago. He said it was through
the efforts of the union that Merriam
Park had secured gas, water and sew
erage, and he believed an organization
such as proposed, could do much more
along similar lines, not only for some
certain district, but for the entire city.
Mr. Shepherd suggested it would be a
good idea for the association to take
up the matter of preparing the streets
for boulevarding; to see that the prop
er kind of trees were planted and that
no opportunity was overlooked for
beautifying the city. It was also sug
gested that the association might as

Dr. Schiffmann Willing to Assist
Assemblyman Schiffmann, who was
present as a spectator,when called upon
to talk told the delegates that he would
be glad at any time to use both his
personal and official influence to as
sist in any movement which was for
the betterment of the city. He believ
ed the central organization plan, a
splendid idea and hoped to see it be
come a power in the city.
The committee on organization, as
named by the chairman, is made up as
follows, there being one member from
each Improvement association:
First Ward Improvement associa
tion, C. E. Hiilstrom; Second ward,
George M. Radenberg; Fifth ward, L.
F. Schultz; Sixth ward, E. H. Wood-
Grand View Heights, F. L. Baird;
Summit avenue; J. W. Cooper; Eighth
ward, F. J. Schultz; Ninth ward, James
Fenstermaker; Tenth ward, F. H. El
lerbe; Merriam Park, C. A. Magnuson.
E. H. Wood, of the Sixth ward, was
named as chairman of the committee,
which will meet early this week and
outline a plan for a permanent organi
Annie Johnson Admits Theft When Ar
raigned in Police Court and Is Fined
Annie Johnson, 692 Rice street, was
arrested and arraigned in the police
court yesterday on a charge of stealing
a stick pin valued at $3 from Mrs. A.
Steidlitz, 150 University avenue, on
Friday. She pleaded guilty and paid a
fine of $15.
Miss Johnson, who had been ped
dling face cream, visited Mrs. Steid
litz's home and while alone in a room
took the pin from a sideboard. She
called twice on Thursday, the first
time asking for some old clothes, and
when she returned took the pin while
Mrs. Steidlitz was in a neighbor's
house. She came again Friday and
Mrs. Steidlitz sent for a policeman and
had the woman arrested.
Judge Kelly Postpones Fuller
ton Contempt Proceedings
The contempt proceedings against S.
F. Fullerton, state executive agent,
came up in the district court yesterday
before Judge Kelly, but were post
poned until Judge Bunn is able to hear
them. Judge Bunn has once passed
upon the matter, and it was the opin
ion of the court that he should act in
contempt proceedings.
Mr. Fullerton is cited to appear in
court and show cause why he should
not be punished for having failed to
obey an order of the court directing
him to appear before a referee and
make a statement regarding his prop
erty. The proceedings grew out of the
case of Del Walters against Fullerton.
Walters had assigned to him two judg
ments against Fullerton, but when he
sent a deputy sheriff to levy upon the
game warden's property none could be
found. It was then that an order was
issued by Judge Bunn, citing Mr. Ful
lerton to appear before a referee and
make a statement regarding his prop
erty, an order Mr. Fullerton Is said to
have ignored.
Undertaker Would Force H. Heitmiller
to Pay for Burial of Woman
Herman Heitmiller, whose wife died
a few days ago, and who, after her
death sued out a writ of habeas corpus
to secure possession of his child, has
been sued for the funeral expenses of
his wife, the plaintiff in the case being
J. A. Wilwerschied, the undertaker,
who asks judgment for $86.
The plaintiff says the defendant re
fused and neglected to provide for the
burial of the body of his wife, and at
the request of relatives the plaintiff
furnished the casket, hearse and car
Heitmiller but two or three days ago
secured possession of his little child,
who was left in the care of its mater
nal grandparents when its mother died.
When the father demanded the child
the grandparents refused to give it up,
but later were compelled to do so by an
order of the court.
Asks $5,000 for Husband's Death
The personal injury suit of Mrs.
Mary E. Shandrew against the Chicago,
St. Paul, Minneapolis & Omaha Rail
road company was begun yesterday be
fore Judge William Lochren and a jury
in the federal court. Mrs. Shandrew
brings the action as administrator of
her husband's estate, and asks $5,000
damages for his death. Shandrew
was thrown from a freight car in the 1
Minneapolis railroad yards Oct. 11,
1903, and killed. The railroad company
denies liability. The case will be taken
up again on Monday.
Taggert's Remains Brought to St. Paul

Taggert, who left St. Paul to engage
in business in Waterloo, lowa, re
turned to St. Paul a few months ago
and was connected with George G.
Wright & Co., a general land concern.
He was in Chicago on a visit when he
Dickson Asks New Trial
Judge Jaggard yesterday heard and
took under advisement the aplicatton
of E. M. Dickson for a new trial in his
suit against the city, an action in which
Dickson sought to recover on an as
signment of $10,000 made to him by W.
J. Preston, who became a bankrupt
while performing a contract job for
the city. In the suit Preston's bonds
men intervened, contending that the
assignment had been made for the pur
pose of defrauding them, and not in
good faith, and the jury held that Dick
son could not recover on the assign
ment. Dickson now wants a new trial.
What an M. D. Learned
A prominent physician of Rome,
Ga., went through a fooji experience
which he makes public:
"It was my own experience that first
led me to advocate Grape-Nuts food
and I also know from having pre
scribed It to convalescents and other
weak patients that the food is a won
derful rebuilder and restorer of nerve
and brain tissue, as well as muscle. It
improves the digestion and sick pa
tients always gain, just as I did, in
strength and weight very rapidly.
"I was in such a low state that I had
to give up my work entirely and go to
the mountains of this state, but two
months there did not improve me; in
fact, I was not quite as well as when I
left home. My food absolutely refused
to sustain me and it became plain that
I must change; then I began to use
Grape-Nuts food and in two weeks I
could walk a mile without the least
fatigue and in five weeks returned to
my home and practice, taking up hard
work again. .Since that time I have
felt as well and strong as I ever did
in my life.
"As a physician Jfcho seeks to help
all sufferers, I consider it a duty to
make these facls public." Name given
by Postum Co., Battle Creek, Mich.
Trial ten days on Grape-Nuts when
the regular food does not seem to sus
tain the body will work miracles.

Minnesota Society of Army of
Philippines Holds Third
In picturesque language Rev. G. L.
Morrill, of Minneapolis, last night in
fused the fire of patriotism into the
hearts of a company of fifty young
men who had seen service in the Phil
ippines in the Spanish-American war,
and who were gathered about the ban
quet tables in the Commercial club.
The occasion was the third annual
reunion of the Minnesota Society of
the Army of the Philippines, and the
banquet followed a business meeting
of the society during the day. The
meeting was made the opportunity for
the exchange of reminiscences and the
recall of incidents of the war in the
islands of the Orient when the Thir
teenth Minnesota was stationed in the
Philippines for something more than a
year during 1898-99, and was altogether
a pleasant affair. The veteran volun
teers of the Twin Cities enjoyed to the
utmost the reunion and the post
prandial feature of the affair extended
well into the night.
The Minnesota society held its busi
ness meetings at the rooms of Carleton
camp, St. Paul branch of the society
413 Robert street, yesterday afternoon,
and a banquet at the Commercial club
in the evening completed the annual
reunion. Officers were elected and the
constitution of the Minnesota society
was amended to conform to recent
changes in the national society's or
ganic law.
In addition to a representation of
eleven delegates from Camp Patterson,
Minneapolis, and sixteen from Camp
Carleton, a number of the members of
both camps attended the state society

Special Notice
We wish to call the public's attention
to a young man about twenty-five years
old, who gives his name as A. Brown,
representing himself an agent for the
Golden Rule book department. He is
canvassing the city for the Women's
Home Journal. As a special inducement
to get the money he gives six bound
books with a yearly subscription, p.II for
$1.00. From reports so far received we
judge he has collected about $100.00.
We caution the public never to sub
scribe for anything outside of the store,
as we never send out agents for any pur
pose. W. H. Elsinger & Co.

Beware of Ointments for Ca-
tarrh That Contain Mercury,
as mercury will surely destroy the sense
of smell and completely derange the whole
system when entering "it through the mu
cous surfaces. Such articles should never
be used except on prescriptions from rep
utable physicians, as the damage they
will do is ten fold to the good you can
possibly derive from them. Halls Catarrh
Cure, manufactured by F. J. Cheney &
Co.. Toledo. 0.. contains no mercury, and
is taken internally, acting directly upon
the blood and mucous surfaces of the

be sure you get the genuine. It is taken
internally and made in Toledo. Ohio by
