NOT WORTH SEEING North Dakota's Republican Convention Like Chicago's "The Republican nominating con vention for North Dakota will be held a week from tomorrow," said a prom-, inent North Dakotan at the Merchants' hotel last night, -'and probably never before in the history of politics in our state has there been so little precon vention strife. While Minnesota Re public ;ms have been in the throes of tlu- hottest fight in their experience, North Dakota Republicans—famed for being the scrappiest bunch in the West—have been floating along with out a ripple of excitement, and I am willing to predict that the nominating convention next Wednesday at Grand Fork* will not be worth going to see. K. V. S;iile.«. of Traill county, will without doubt be chosen to head the ticket as the candidate of the party for governor. Saiies has had a cam paign, but it was some months ago, and I do not look to see any other name presented to the convention. "Most of the other state officers will be nominated without any opposition worthy the name. H. L. Holmes, of Pembina county, has the call for state auditor. E. F. Porter, of Foster coun ty, for secretary of state; W. L. Stock well, of Walsh, for state superintend ent of public instruction; C. N. Frick, of Nelson county, for attorney general, and N. C. Young, of Cass county, for judge of the supreme court, all in cumbents of the respective offices, will, T believe, bo renominated without sub stantial opposition and Albert Peter son, of Sargent county, is believed to be in the lead for state treasurer. "It is possible that the Murphy- Roach feud, from Ward county, will conif before the convention for settle ment, but this will create only a pass ing interest. Ir was pretty well threshed out at our delegate conven tion, held at Fargo in May. and Re publicans generally of the state do not leel like reopening a sore spot." DUNN AND COLLINS MEN LINING UP FOR FIGHT Factions Will Clash In Attempt to Con- trol Local Committees Republican precinct eommitteemen are meeting throughout the city and county to perfect their organizations for the en suing two years. The list has been corn pi lo<l by Secretary Theodore J. Grone walri" from the list of members returned to the Collins county convention, and there promises to bo a pretty fight be tween the partisans of Collins and the Dunn men in Ramsey county for the con trol of the city and county organization for the next two years. The city and county committee will be composed of two members selected by each ward and two from the country, and the votes of these men will deter mine the personnel of the chairman, vice chatrzran. secretary ana treasurer of the central organization. All the precinct committeemen have been notified by Secretary Gronewald to meet within the next week and perfect their organizations, and it is expected that the formal meeting for the election of officers of the city and county com mittee will be held very soon after the precincts are fully organized. The value of the organization was thoroughly demonstrated in the recent county convention and the ante-conven tion caucuses, and Tioth factions will make a determined effort, the one to re tain control of and the other to capture the machinery of the elections. Fenton O. Warner is the present chairman of the city and county eomniTttee. His faction insists that it will remain in the saddle, while the so-called Dunn men say that they have a majority of the wards and ■will elect the chairman and other officers of the city and county committee. It promises to be a nice fight. CHEESEMAKERS WIN HIGH SCORE BADGES The siaie dairy and food commission yesterday announced the winners in the seociiG monthly cheese scoring contest re- cently inaugurated by the commission. A. W.

Parkins, the winner of the July contest, had the score honor in the June contest. * 1 CLAPP PREPARES TO SELECT COIIITTEE The Senator CaJls Republican State Candidates to a Meeting Senator M. E. Clapp. chairman of the late Republican state convention, has called a meeting of the candidates on the state ticket for Thursday in St. Paul, and at that time it will be practically Fettled who are to consti tute the Republican state central com mittee for the next two years. The candidates all expect repre sentation, through close personal and political friends, on the committee, and the conference called by Senator Clapp is in accordance with the terms of a resolution adopted late in the proceedings of the state convention authorizing the appointment by Sen ator Clapp of the committee. Senator Clapp has been receiving much gratuitous advice as to the makeup of the committee, if political rumors are to be believed, and a num ber of prominent Republicans have been suggested in connection with the chairmanship. The names of Senator E. B. HaAV kins, Dulutb; C. A. Morey, Winona; Milie Bunnell, Duluth; C. S. Mitchell, Alexandria, and others, have been mentioned, but one report in circula tion yesterday said that Hawkins was most likely to land the place. It was pointed out that he is popular throughout the St. Louis county dis trict and that he has strong financial backing and could interest some pretty substantial men in the success of the state ticket. One of Senator Clapp's most ardent admirers has suggested that in mak ing up the ticket he should not for get his own interests in seeking to conform to the ideas of R. C. Dunn and the other candidates on the Re publican ticket. "You are the nominee of the whole convention," this man is said to have told the senator, "and you are entitled to representation on the committee just as well ap any other candidate. You are a candidate for re-election by the next legislature, and if you are th» wise politician that I take you to be you will not overlook yourself in nam ing the state central committee." LUCK AGAINST THESVS Rustic Youths Trying to Escape Time Run Into More Time Charles and James Hickman, a cou ple of unsophisticated young men. made a desperate effort yesterday to escape spending fifteen days in the workhouse, with the result that they will stay there for 105 days. Officers Gibbons and St. Clair left the court room with nine prisoners. On reaching the court house areaway where the black maria stands, while waiting for the arrival of the prison ers, the Hickmans made a dash for liberty. James went on Cedar street and Charles chose Wabasha. The former was captured at Sixth and Ce dar by Deputy Sheriff Gackstetter, and the latter, at Third and Wabasha. ran plump into the arms of Lieut. Mey erding and Patrolman Paulson. They were taken before Judge Fine hout, and on pleading guilty to having made an attempt to escape they were given ninety more days each and taken to the workhouse at once. The young men, who had the ap pearance of being farmer boys, were originally arrested in a Burlington box car in the yards beneath Dayton's bluff, and for this were given fifteen days each, in default of fines. Aftt their conviction they consulted and made up their minds that they wourS not serve the time. Their first chance to escape came when they were being taken to the black maria. Officer Gibbons displayed presence of mind in seeing that the other seven prisoners were safely locked in the wagon. He did not become excited, and joined in tTTe chase. WILL POST TEACHERS ON THE EYE AND EAR State Board of Health Arranges for Lectures by Specialists Schoolma'ams of the state will be told by eye and ear specialists how to examine their wards in determining the correctness of their vision and the acuteness of their auricular nerves. The state board of health announced yesterday a course of lectures to be given by eye and ear specialists of the Twin Cities befGre different summer training schools. The lectures will be to prepare the teachers for the usual examinations of the children to de termine their vision and hearing. Drs. F. O. Todd,' C. E. Lum, W. R. Murray, J. H. James, J. W. Chamberlin, Thomas McDavitt, H. Mel. Morton and A. D. Lewis will be the lecturers, and among the schools to be visited are those at Minneapolis, Big Stone City, Duluth, I Moorhead, Mankato, St. Cloud, Cannon Falls. Winona, Rochester, Albert Lea and Marshall. A proposition from the Maj. "Walter Ried Memorial association was deferred to the next meeting ( of the board. Dr. ! Ried, who did a great work in the yel low fever epidemic at Havana during the Spanish-American war, has since died and a movement looking to -a $25, --000 memorial to him was begun at the recent meeting of the national medical society. Minnesota doctors will con tribute to the fund through the medium of the state board of health. Plans were submitted to the board for septic tanks, designed for country residences and residences in small towns not having complete sewer sys tems, and one was shown that did its work effectively at a Michigan resi dence and which cost only $25.75. The superiority of the septic tank over the old-fashioned cesspool was shown. Changes in Land Office R. H. Oakley, receiver of the United States land office at Cass Lake, who was in the city yesterday, will become register of the land office, and M. N. Koll, whose appointment in the place of J. D. Jones, register, resigned, was recently made on the recommendation of Congressman Iluekman, will be- come- :j receiver, v The changes • in the Cass - Lake r land office". ■' are - effective Aug. 1. THE ST. PAUL GLOBE. WEDNESDAY, JULY 13, 1904 PRIESTS Of THE NORTHWEST GREET PRINCE Of IKE CHURCH Cardinal Satolii Arrives in St. Paul and Is Viet at the Train by Archbishop Ireland, Whose Guest He Remains for the Day and Evening—Knights of Columbus Will Tender Prelate a Reception Tonight at the Ryan Cardinal Satolli, former delegate apostolic from the Vatican to the United States, who has been sent from. Rome as the representative of the pope at the St. Louis world's fair, ar rived "^a St. Paul at 11:25 o'clock yes terday morning in a special car at tached to a regular Milwaukee train. He was accompanied by his three sec retaries; bx^Bishop O'Gorman, of Sioux Fallsr'and Dr. P. R. Heft'ron, president of: the St. Paul seminary, who went to to welcome the cardinal on behalf of Archbishop Ire land; and by Div MacGloin, rector of the cathedral at Buffalo, N. V., who brought to Chicago an invitation ex tended to the cardinal by Bishop Cot ton, of Buffalo. The secretaries, con stituting the cardinal's suite, were Dr. Marruchi, Dr. Satolli, a nephew of his eminence, and Dr. Dionjoni, all of Rome. Cardinal Satolli is slight and some what stooped. His dark features are strongly marked, his habitual smile is prepossessing. Like his secretaries, he wore the usual street garb of the American clergy. His silk hat, his Prince Albert coat, did not distinguish him from a priest; but the bit of. color that showed at his throat was the scarlet of a cardinal, not the purple of a bishop. Archbishop Greets Cardinal Archbishop Ireland and his secretary, Rev. E. Wilbee, were awaiting the car dinal at the union depot. Although the meeting of host and guest was informal it was marked on the cardinal's part by characteristic Italian fervor. The cardinal, the archbishop, Bishop O'Gornian and Father Wilbee were driven from the depot station to the archiepiscopal residence. Portland ave nue and Chatsworth street. Another carriage conveyed Drs. Heffron, Mar ruchi, Satolli and Dionjoni to the St. Paul seminary, where the secretaries will be entertained by President Hef fron. Yesterday afternoon the cardinal rested. As he speaks English imper fectly he preferred not to be inter viewed. On his behalf, however, Bishop O'Gorman said: "Cardinal Satolli, you know, was in St. Paul twice before during his term as apostolic delegate in the early '90s. The last time, in 1893, he went from here to the Pacific coast over the Great Northern road and occupied for a month a private car placed at his disposal by President James J. Hill. "Of course the cardinal hasn't had time to notice the changes hereabouts since his last visit. But on his way up from the station this morning he did examine the site for the new cathedral —the Kittson 'place.' He was delighted with it and said it would be an ideal situation. JUDSON EXPLAINS Says Contagious Ward at City Hospital Caused Deficit E. H. Judson, member of the city aid county board of control, says that a change in the laws,and the addi tional expense incidental to the main tenance of the contagious ward at the city hospital resulted in the creation of the large deficit in the funds of the board. Mr. Judson said yesterday: "Heretofore the board has possessed the right to use the income from the city hospital and the poor farm, but a law passed by the last legislature makes it necessary that all receipts be turned into the treasury. It is esti mated that the receipts of the hospi tal during 1905 will amount to $24,000, and from the poor farm $2,500. If this income were to be credited to the board, and it should also receive the amount taken in during the present year it would be possible for us to get along with practically the amount we have been receiving heretofore. Our only added expense has been for the maintenance of the contagious ward at the city hospital. This has proven costly. "The apparent great increase in the cost of the maintenance of the city hospital and the poor farm is therefore not really an increase. The difference is that the board now pays into the treasury all receipts, instead of using them, and it is necessary to propor tionately increase the tax levy for our purposes, although the receipt of the money should permit the lowering of the amount to be raised for some other purpose. It is the wish of the board to correct the impression that the board is extravagant." NEW DIRECTORY HAS 3,979 MORE NAMES Fortieth Volume of City Guide Is Now on the Press The fortieth volume of the St. Paul di rectory is in press and will shortly be in circulation by its publishers, R. L. Polk & Co., who have issued the preceding twenty-six annual editions. Proof sheets of the new edition show a total of 106,769 names, a gain of 3.979 names during the year ending June. 1904, representing an increase in the population of the capital city of 8.953 since the last edition was issued. The new directory will contain 12.543 names more than the edition compiled at the time of the government census of 1900. indicating an increase in the popu lation of the city since that time of 28, --222, and added to the 1900 population makes the total population of St. Paul at present 191,287. The area of the city is shown, by the new directory, to be 55.44 square miles, the dimensions being 10 miles from east to west and 5*A from north to south. There are 1.296 streets, 38,302 buildings, 37,670 families and a total of 106,769 names listed. , _lj , CARDINAL SATOLLI Apostolic Delegate From the Vatican Who Is Paying a Social Visit to St. Paul "Dr. Heffron and I met the cardinal Sunday in Chicago at the residence of Archbishop Quigley. The cardinal had a great deal to say :i bout the world's fair that he had just visited. He thought it was the finest that had ever been held anywhere, and much better than the Chicago exposition, which he remembered well. He was charmed with the many courtesies he received at St. Louis from everyone and espe cially from the .world's fair officers. "We left Chicago at 10:30 Monday night in a private car furnished the cardinal by the Milwaukee railroad. During the journey the cardinal spoke often of the satisfaction he felt at be ing able to visit Archbishop Ireland and other old friends in this country. In fact the cardinal would like to make it known that, aside from bis visit to St. tiouis, where he was sent by the Vatican on a mission of cour tesy, his travels through the United States have only a personal object. He wishes incidentally to recuperate, and especially to visit once more the friends he made when he was hero as apostolic delegate. I was specially gratified to meet him, because I had the honor of receiving consecration from his hands at Washington !n April, 1896. a few months after he had been made a cardinal. Later, in 18y6, he returned to Rome.'' Dinner to Cardinal Last evening Archbishop Ireland gave a dinner in the cardinal's honor. The guests included Archbishop Red wood, of New Zealand; Bishop Scan nell, of Omaha; Bishop Garrigan, of Sioux City* Iowa; Bishop-elect Lenne han, of Great Falls, Mont.; Bishop O'Gorman, of Sioux Falls, S. D.: Bish op Stariha, of Lead, S. D.: Bishop Keane, of Cheyenne, Wyo.; Bishop Shanley, of Fargo. N. D.; Bishop Mc- Golrick, of Duluth; Bishop Trdbec, of St. Cloud; Bishop Cotter, of Wirrona; Dr. Heffron. of St. Paul seminary: Drs. Marruchi, Satolli and Dionjoni, of Rome. A large reeejjtiwu for Cardinal Sa tolli will be given x<ynight at the Hotel Ryan by the Knight:, of Columbus. At noon tomorrow his eminence will receive the local priests at the St. Paul seminary. Tomorrow evening he will be entertained at dinner by Mr. and Mrs. James J. Hill at their home on Summit avenue. Friday noon or afternoon the priests of Minneapolis will be presented to the cardinal at-the West hotel. Friday night he will leave St. Paul over the Soo road, for Sault Ste. Marie and Buffalo. HERR MAY RECOVER Bullet Is Removed From Would- be Murderer's Ear Edward E. Herr. the alleged hypno tist, who shot Blanche Lamont at the Empire theater Monday night, remains in a critical condition at the city hos pital, but it is thought that he will re cover. He underwent an operation yesterday afternoon and the bullet which he fired into his ear was located and remove.d» It was found that the buUet, instead of striking the brain, as was supposed Monday night; had lodged in the tem poral bone. It was extracted and it is supposed tha/ be will recover. Blanche Lament, at St. Joseph's hos pital, is recovering. Dr. J. H. O'Brien, who is attending her, said yesterday that the wcnmdjs were superficial. STATE HIGH SCHOOL BOARD IS SUSTAINED Attorney General Upholds Its Action in Case of Waverfy School The attorney"general"s office, by re quest of the interested parties, yester day gave an opinion in the Waverly school case. The opinion upholds the action of the state high school board in refusing to grant state aid to the Waverly high school, but suggests a way out of the difficulty. The refusal to grant state aid was on the grounds that the school board of Waverly was devoting a portion of its money for repairs on a Tmilcling not owned by the district, the building having for merly oeen a parochial school. A second cause of tne withholding of state aid was because ft was alleged that sisters of the Order or St. Joseph were I employed as teachers in the school. No complaint was made as to their, fitness or character, but ilbject'ion was made that I they, appeared hi the" «ar,b of their order, j The attorney general":? office holds that i the state high .school board has a<?ted"l within its discretion in refusing state aid. '. because of school money being spent on private property, but suggests that this may be obvfeited by the board renting the building. Its owners to make repairs. As to the second cause, the opinion says it has Jong been held by the office that it is riQt,"g?ermissible for teachers in the public schools to appear clad in the garb of any sectarian order. A copy of the opinion -has been forwarded to John Casey, secretary of the Waverly school board. Not the Same Man Jesse Sparks, twelve years old, col ored and Very saucy, came before Judge Finehout yesterday, accused of having destroyed window glass by the use of a rubber slungshot. The young ster contended the* Patrolman Tom Galvin had arrested the "wrong man," and was given until today to prove that such was the case. TO SOLVE SEME PROBLEM BY TRIAL State Board of Health Proposes to Construct Experimental Plant at University Sewage disposal was considered at considerable length yesterday at an all day session of the state board of health at the office of Dr. H. M. Brack en, secretary cf the board. Steps were taken to secure the building of an ex perimental plant where the problem of sewage disposal may be studied by the students of sanitary science. Plans were submitted .ior septic tanks and filter beds for several of the smaller villages of the state. It is proposed to establish an experi mental plant at the state university, and to use the experimental system as an educational adjunct in connection with the course in engineering at the university. The matter was referred to the executive committee of the state board to report as to plans and speci fications at the October meeting of the board. It is possible that the sewage disposal plant may be made of suffi cient size to care for the sewage from the entire group of university build ings. Plans for a septic tank and filter beds were submitted by City Engineer L. W. Rundlett, of St. Paul, for the village of Graceville, and after an examination the board approved the plans. Plans for a similar improvement at Cannon Falls, presented by L. R. Wolff, en gineer, were also accepted, and a pro posal for a septic tank at Glenwood, but unaccompanied by the specifica tions, was received and referred to the executive committee with power to act. A circular issued by Dr. W. F. West brook, state bacteriologist, covering in structions for gathering samples of wa ter for bacteriological examination, was approved and will be printed and circulated. Approves of Double-Walled Tents The board indorsed the suggestion of double-walled tents for townships and small villages having no quarantine hospitals, as quarantine hospitals in case of infectious diseases. It was pointed out that the double walls made the tents cooler in summer and warmer in cold weather: that they may be eas ily disinfected after use, and may be disinfected by the use of portable dis infecting boxes. Their cleanliness and the free circulation of air possible in a tent were further recommendations in their favor over the houses usually in use for quarantine hospitals in small towns. The complaint made against the lo cation of the school house in Plymouth township. Hennepin county, was re ferred to the executive committee with power to act. It is alleged that the school house is situated in a low tract of ground and that the natural drain age makes it a breeding place for dis ease. It is charged that a saloon man is responsible for keeping the school house in its present location. A paint ing in water colors presented to the board indicated the school location. A proposition from the United States geological survey was accepted. It contemplates the employment of a man to work in harmony with the slate board in locating the source of supplies of good water, and the sending of sam ples of water to the state chemist and bacteriologist for examination and analysis. The government employe will be employed constantly, the gov ernment to pay the salary and the state board his expenses. The date of the state examination for embalmers and undertakers was set for Aug. 30, the second day of the state fair. ARRESTS ARE DUE TO FOLLOW OHAGE'S ORDER Warrants to Be Issued for Those Who Have Not Removed Vaults The crusade of Health Commission er Ohage against all vaults in the ter ritory bounded by Wabasha and Neill streets and Sixth and Tenth streets has progressed to the extent that war rants may be expected in a few days. A majority of those notified to re move the vaults have signified their willingness to conform to the require ments of the health department, but in about one-third of the cases the no tices have received no attention from the owners of the property. Out of the slightly more than a hundred no tices sent, it is expected that it will be necessary to enforce the demands in about thirty cases by an action in court. Inspectors Getchelf and Eisenmenger have been in charge of the investiga tion. Getchell having charge of all t\m territory east of Jackson, and Eisen menger in charge of that west. They have notified all owners of property that the vaults must be removed and sewers put in, and the next move will be to secure warrants. Dr. Ohage insists _ that he is in earnest in this matter? and that he "will carry 10 a successful is*ue the de mand that the vaults be abandoned. OHIO STREET SEWER SYSTEM TO COST $48,556 City Engineer Submits His Estimate to Board of Public Works City Engineer Rundlett yesterday submitted to the board of public works an estimate of the cost of the Ohio street sewer system, the amount being $48,566, of which $10,000 will be paid by the city. The cost to the property owners will be about $1.12 per front foot. This is the sewer system the con struction of which is being urged by the Grand View Heights Improvement association, the engineer recommend ing that a sewer on Stevens street, from Ohio to Ottawa, be stricken from the order, and that it be constructed on Stevens from Ohio to Manomin, and on Manomin to Ottawa. The board passed a large number of sidewalk orders that were -delayed while the question of the right of the city to assess for such improvements was being tested in the courts. A large number of orders for the Eleventh ward were approved, with the consent of Aid. Lynch. Big Building the Security A chattel mortgage for $20,000 was filed with the city clerk yesterday by M. J. O'Neil in favor of Caroline E. Bates, the security being the building and lease on the lot at Fifth and Cedar streets, and the notes secured by the mortgage are due in five years. The lease on the property runs for ninoty seven and one-half years from George Phelps of England, to O'Xeil. and the security of the mortgagee is the rights possessed by O'NeiL --1 ■ ' ■■-- -■■ ■ ■■■■' ny This store doses daily at 6; Saturdays during July and August at 1. r ; ■ St. Paul's Silk Selling Store. ,'..:: Entrances Wabasha, Fourth.

D. Rogers, of Juneau, Alaska, said last night at the Ryan hotel, "the New Yorker is a very popular candidate in Alaska, and Alaskan Democrats hope to see Judge Parker the next president of the United States. "We are not even under a territorial form of government, but are in the same class with Indian territory and District of Columbia, and our privileges in naming a candidate are confined to representation in the national conven tion. The six delegates from Alaska to the St. Louis national Democratic con vention, of which I happened to be one. were instructed for Judge Parker and are therefore more than pleased at the nominations made by the convention. "I am a pioneer of Alaska," Dr. Rog ers declared, "for I have been a resi dent of Juneau for nearly sixteen years. Prior to going to the extreme North west I was located at Round Lake, near -Troy, N. V., and knew Judge Parker quite intimately in the campaign of lSßf>. when he was at the head of the Democratic campaign organization in the Empire state. He is a fine man in every way and there is absolutely no doubt that he will carry his home state of New York. His chances for carry ing a number of pivotal Eastern states in addition to New York are good and the Republican national committee has awakened to the fact that it has no walkaway in this campaign, as it evi dently believed it had at the outset. "Minnesota was in an unfortunate predicament at St. Louis, and when the state cast nine votes for Parker, nine for Hearst and divided its remaining four among the other candidates, some body cried out. 'Did anybody get away'" A state makes a mistake when it does not cast its entire vote for some nom inee, for a division weakens its posi tion, and the state is without influence in national councils." Dr. Rogers was chosen national rnm mitteeman for Alaska and remained be hind at St. Liouis for a day or two tn attend a meeting- of the committee. The other live delegates from his territory have scattered throughout the country before starting on their long journey to the North. Dr. Roger.s left last night for Seattle and thence goes to Juneau by the first steamer. WHAT WAS HE AFTER Court Sees No Offense and Dis charges Peter Black Peter Black, living at 2055 St. An thony avenue, said when he came be fore Judge Finehout for trial yester day that he did not know what he was charged with, and when the court had listened to the evidence introduced by the prosecution it was of a like opin ion. Mrs. Jerome Martineau and Miss Florence- Dunbar were the v/itnesses for the prosecution. They live in the same house with Black, and testified that the latter came from the house j with a club in his hand and walked about in a suspicious manner. City Prosecutor Helmes moved that the case be dismissed, and the court said: "Respectable citizens should not be dragged before a criminal court on such a frivolous charge, and it would seem that the city prosecutor must have been imposed upon or he would not have issued the warrant on such evidence.'' BOARD OF HEALTH WILL INSPECT LIVE STOCK Consents to Do the Work at the Re- quest of Sanitary Board Details of a proposal recently made to the live stock sanitary ■ board in re sponse to a • request that the state board of health do - the live stock board's laboratory work were made public yesterday, at the quarterly meeting-of-the state board of health. The state board of health offered to do the work on the condition that the live stock sanitary board supply one man for the laboratory and pay his ex penses in traveling, etc. The state board of health will make no charge .for executive or clerical work nor for supplies. The proposi tion will "probably be accepted by the live stock beard at its meeting on Friday, and it is believed that the plan will increase the efficiency of the live stock inspection. THEY WANT A LAW Shippers Urge Legislation for Reciprocal Demurrage At a meeting of the executive com mittee of the St. Paul Board of Trade, held at the Commercial club last night, the question of reciprocal demurrage in car service was discussed a I some length and plans were outlined !'«>r creating a sentiment with a view of having the 11.-xt legislature pass a law more favorable to the shipper. "There are now such laws in a num ber of state," said W. IT. Patton, sec retary of the board, "and they are of much benefit to the shippers. We want such a law in Minnesota, one that provides for reciprocal demurrage and giving the railroad and warehouse commission jurisdiction in its enforce ment. "Under the present system, the roads have and exercise the right to charge demurrage rates, where shippers fail to load or unload a oar within the time specified, hut there is no relief for the patron of the road in cases where the shipment is delayed in transit, or where the delay is the fault of road. This, we believe, is unjust to the shipper, who often suffers .1 greal by having a shipment delayed. "We want a law that will specify how much time a road should have in which to complete a shipment. In Virginia, where the law has been car ried to the supreme court and declared constitutional, the road has one day in which to switch a car out, and the same length of time in which to switch it in at the point of destination, and it is also required that fifty miles per day be covered by the shipment. "What we want is a law that will require the roads to pay a demurrage to the shipper where cars are delayed longer than necessary, and we will en deavor to have such a law passed by the next legislature." The question of reciprocal demur rage has been before the Board of Trade for some time, and conferences have already been held with officials of some of the roads operating in Min nesota. In behalf of the roads it is maintained that demurrage charges aii- not made for die revenue there is in them, but merely for the purpose of stimulating shippers to load and un load the cars as promptly as possible. The board will take the matter up with other commercial bodies and be tween now and the time the next leg islature meets will endeavor to create a sentiment favorable to such a law.
