NEWS OF MINNEAPOLIS
Makes This Almost Sole Topic
of His Speech in Minne
Primed with a good dinner which
was later flavored with a choice col
lection of chestnuts furnished by J.
Adam Bede, Joseph G. Cannon, speaker
of the national house of representa
tives, made his much heralded appear
ance at the Minneapolis auditorium
Thomas Lowry presided, and group
ed about him on the stage were men
of good living and considerable wealth.
An odor of pine permeated the air.
Over the stage there was an alleged
painting of Theodore Roosevelt, and
pasted on every pillar and hung all
about the stage there were portraits of
the Republican candidate for governor,
but if he was anywhere in the audience
he did not make his presence known.
Fletcher the Hero
Speaker Cannon arrived yesterday
nfternoon and was taken in charge by
former Congressman Loren Fletcher,
who dined him.
At the residence of the former con
gressman he was primed for the oc
casion and his speech last night con
sisted of a long eulogy of the Repub
lican policy of protection, some pleas
antries intended for the old soldiers
who were given seats behind some
ward workers, a brief—very brief—de
nial of the charge that the president
had overstepped the limits of the con
stitution, some abuse of the Democrats
and a pathetic appeal to the voters to
give Loren Fletcher "one more term"
in the national house of representa
tives. As far as other candidates than
Roosevelt were concerned the meeting
might be considered a Fletcher meet
ing from start to finish. Occasionally
some of the lesser lights mentioned
other candidates, but only occasionally.
Mr. Cannon, gray, tall and angular,
g-yrateel about the platform, talked first
at one time and then another, but all
the time he could not get away from
his pet hobby—protection. The greater
portion of his address was devoted to
the .conditions which obtained about
1860 and he recited figures at an alarm

Roosevelt club of St. Paul, the distin

hall and given a happy reception. Then
T. H. Girling, chairman of the county
committee, introduced Thomas Lowry

Mr. Cannon said he "had the largest
frame and the smallest voice of any
man he ever saw." The chairman

Minneapolis, if re-elected to congress,
Mr. Cannon was pi-esented and the only
enthusiasm of the evening followed.
Mr. Cannon began his talk with a few
pleasantries, and said he came to take
counsel with the people of the state as
co-sovereigns to determine who should
be chosen head of the nation. He touch
ed upon scriptural topics and said parties
and governments have been judged by
their works from time Immemorial.
Then taking as his analysis of the Rep
lican and Democratic parties, he said,
they "Must be judged by their fruits or
their barrenness if they have no
Taking up the Democratic platform, he
proceeded to dissect it.
Upon the Panama canal, he asserted,
the Democrats had denounced the al
leged theft of the route, but now would
help to conceal the stolen property. It
required courage to be a thief, he said,
and he would rather be a thief than a
On protection, he eaid, the Democrats
had always opposed the policy, and when
they have been in power they have al
ways written the opposite policy on the
Civilization and progress had always
rested upon the labor of the people.
Without labor there was barbarism.
Delves Into History
There was no reason, he asserted, for
a difference between the Democrats and
Republicans. Going back to 1860, he said,
the slave labor of the South made it im
possible for the free labor of the North
to compote successfully. Free trade was
desired by the South because the prod
ucts of that region were sent abroad to
be exchanged for the products of cheap
labor of Europe. The stand of the free
labor of the_ North was to the opposite,
and hence the North was for protection
and the South for free trade.
"A cheap government is not a good
government," declared Mr. Cannon, as he
.strode across the stage and shook his
nngei- at the sergeant-at-arms. "Pro
tection is a tax levied upon cheap foreign
labor for the purpose of making up the
difference between foreign and native la
bor, the proceeds to be used for the ad
ministration of government, the improve
ments of the country and the support of
He lamented the fnct that in 1860 the
South was "solid" and that practically
the same conditions obtain today.
For the entertainment of the old sol
diers who were given seats behind some
ward workers, he read a section of the
Confederate constitution •which proscribed

third place aa a manufacturing power
during the period of the Civil war. Seven
billions were shot away and much blood
was spilled for keeping the best gov
ernment in the world intact, and the re
sult warranted the expense. Protection
had made it possible to meet this heavy
burden and pay liberal pensions. "Uncle
Joe" then gave some statistics to show
the growth of wealth and manufactures
since 1860, and all but insisted that the
policy of protection had cause the rain to
fall and sprout the wheat sown by the
Repeats His Maxims
"Free men and cosovereigns of the
best and greatest government on the face
of the earth," was a favorite expression
of the speaker, and he repeated it sev
The policy of protection, according to
Mr. Cannon, permitted the importation of
raw material, its manufacture and then
its exportation with a rebate of duty.
Mr. Cannon talked protection for over
forty minutes and then got down to the
McKinley administration and told how the
balance of trade had been made to favor
the United States.
He thought the Democratic success of
1592 was due to the fact that the men of
Lincoln's time had passed away and the
younger generation sought a change by
fooling the farmers and laboring men by
holding up the bugaboo of protection. The
people were deceived, said the speaker,
on a pledge to remove protection, and
the administration lasted only- four years.
Somebody yelled "Soup" and the man
from Illinois assented.
"The devil was to pay and no pitch
hat," he shouted, and a few people
laughed. "One thing the Democrats did
was to make things cheaper," he con
tinued, "but they took away the where
with to buy."
Mr. Cannon said that in 1896 the Demo
crats said such mean things about Grover
Cleveland that there was nothing left for
the Republicans to say.
This wis his introduction to the dis
cussion of the financial question, which
he considered briefly, and then dropped
back to the tariff and the enactment of
the Dingley law, which he admitted was
not perfect, but the best protective reve
nue law ever written In the statute books.
"From its enactment," he exclaimed,
"the people have ascended the mount of
prosperity without let .or hindrance."
Under the Republican financial policy
the amount of money per capita had in
creased and the rates of interest had de
creased. Only under Cleveland and
Buchanan had bonds been issued in times
of peace and hawked about the markets
of the world.
During the Spanish war McKlnley did
not place any bonds in the hands of a
syndicate for sale, but sold them to the
people at 2 per cent, and they were sub
scribed five times over.
The Democratic tariff plank of 1904, he
said, was like that of 1892, and the ex
periment would not be repeated.
. Draws Dismal Picture
The distinguished speaker then proceed
ed to draw a dark picture of what will
happen should the Democrats be success
ful at the election next month. Dire dis
aster would follow.
To the charge of militarism he said
there "was nothing in it."
"One soldier to 3,200 people will not de
stroy the • liberties of the people. This
Caesar who lays awake nights laying plans
for the destruction of the liberties of Hen
ry Watterson and a few Boston mug
wumps has, by the exercise of his own
discretion, reduced the army from 100,000
to 59,000 men!"
The United States had been forced to
take possession of the Philippines, and
now could not give them up, and he didn't
believe a single Democrat would counte
nance such an act.
Mr. Cannon declared that there was no
attempt on the part of the executive to
overstep constitutional limitations for the
congress was a check upon the president.
"A change of sixteen votes will give bur
friends, the enemy, control of the house,"
said the speaker with intense earnestness,
and he insisted that the welfare of the
nation depended upon the return of the
Minnesota delegation, "which is one of the
strongest, if not the strongest, of any
from any of the forty-flve states." '
Pleads for Fletcher
Then he pleaded for the return of Uncle
Loren Fletcher, whom he characterized as
a model and persistent congressman who
never made a speech of more than ten
minutes in length.
The former congressman grinned and
Rev. G. L,. Morrill yelled, "What's the
matter with Uncle Loren?"
"He's all right," said a man among the
Speaker Cannon declared that talk "un
less you have a message, is a disturbance
of the air." The man who was defeated
by John Lind he characterized as a "work
er and not a talker."
Before concluding his address Mr. Can
non sounded a note of alarm. He asserted
the solid South would give Parker 151
votes in the electoral college, and John
Sharp Williams, Senator Tillman and
other leaders of the party would make an
effort to secure more in the North. From
the tenor of his remarks he seemed to fear
that the chances for Democratic success
were excellent in this direction.
Following the speaker came J. Adam

MAN WHO KILLED
SHERIFF HARRIS FINALLY
CAPTURED IN WISCONSIN
Continued From First Page
Smith appeared to be considering the
sheriff's words, and the halt in the
proceedings gave Raasbach time In
which to think. He poured forth an
eloquent appeal for justice for himself
and his deputy, »reiterating his state
ment that he was not the sheriff, and
offered to do anything in his power to
accommodate the stranger. His elo
quence finally won the day, and Smith,
who complained of being tired, was
enticed into the wagon.
He climbed up to the front seat, or
dering the deputy to take the reins.
This was a fatal mistake, for no sooner
had he seated himself, than Raasbach
sprang onto the rear seat and grasped
Sirrith about the body, pinning his arms
to his side.
Smith struggled and attempted to
draw a revolver. For a time he was
prevented, but with a superhuman ef
fort he freed one arm and secured the
weapon, which he discharged over his
shoulder at the sheriff but missed him.
A few moments later the weapon was
wrested from his grasp.
As soon as Smith saw that further
struggling was useless, he said, "All
right. I give up.," and stretched out
his arms for the manacles, which were
immediately fastened to his wrists. He
was then driven to Barronette and

Murder of Harris
Smith is wanted for the murder of
Sheriff Harold O. Harris, Of St. Croix
county, on the night of June 18 last,
while the latter was attempting to ar
l-est Smith for the murder'*of Officer
Fred Stevens, of Havre, Mont, May 16,
1904. When Sheriff Harris, who pos
sessed a description of the; man, at
tempted to arrest Smith as Me alighted
from a train at Eau Claire, Smith
turned upon him and fired point blank,
the bullet penetrating the sheriffs
heart, killing him Instantly.
The deed was committed early in
the evening, in the full sight of a score
of persons. Smith held the crowd at
bay at the point of a revolver, while he
moved off into the woods, and until
last Thursday had not been heard of.
Immediately after the murder of
Sheriff Harris posses were organized
and a search for the murderer began.
The man was surrounded several times
but through various ruses managed to
escape. The state militia was finally
called in to aid' in the search. The
man was surrounded in a swamp at
one time and was sighted, but was
not captured. The man hunt continued
for many weeks.
Smith often appeared, and at the
point of a revolver of a gun stole
horses from the farmers.' On one oc
casion he rode boldly past a sentry
guarding a bridge across one of the
many creeks in that section of the
country, and on being commanded to
halt did so. He was disguised as a
farmer and passed inspection, being al
lowed to proceed. At another time he
entered a barber shop and was shaved.
The barber suspected who his cus
tomer was but was afraid to secure
him. After he departed the barber
alarmed the village.
Smith was often sighted and fired
upon while eluding his pursuers, but
was wounded only slightly. After six
weeks Smith was lost track of and the
posses abandoned the search.
A reward of $1,000 was offered for
the arrest of Smith.

TURNS DOWN NINTH
School Board Declines to En-
large Smith School
Fruitless appeals from a Ninth ward,
delegation that measures be taken for'
building an addition to the R. A. Smith
school at Geranium and Sylvan streets oc
cupied the attention of the school board
T. P. Swan, chairman of the delegation,
and James Drummond, his lieutenant, ex
plained that the Smith school was now
crowded; that only the opening of
parochial schools nearby had prevented
the attendance at the Smith from growing
faster than it had; that prospects indi
cated many more children within a short
time than the school could possibly take
care of. Already the principal of the
Smith was occupying a hall as a private
office. Even by next spring half-day ses
sions might become necessary.
The Smith school, being more conven
iently situated than either the Rice or the
Gorman schools, ought to receive any ad
ditions made in the district.
Besides, said Mr. Drummond, assessed
values showed that lots adjoining the
Smith school could be purchased much
more cheaply than those adjoining the
Rice or the Gorman schools.
Finally, "if for no other reaspn than its
name," Insisted Mr. Drummond, "the R.
A. Smith school should be made one of
the top schools of St. Paul."
President Holman explained that other
schools were much more crowded than
the Smith, and that the cost of enlarging
such schools, of repairing certain schools,
and of caring for an increased number of
pupijs, would absolutely prevent the board
from granting the request of the delega
tion tNs year. "But come around again
next year, gentlemen," said the president.

Pure Food Factories That Make Postum and Grape-Nuts
Talk on Advertising by C. W. Post to Pub
lishers at Banquet at Battle Creek.
In his address to Publishers at the
Battle Creek banquet Mr. Post likened
the growth of a modern commercial
enterprise to the growth of an apple
tree. Good seed, plenty of work and
water are needed but the tree will not
bear apples without sunshine.
The sunshine to the commercial
plant is publicity secured by advertis
It is impossible even with the heavi
est advertising to make a success un
less the article has merit of a high
order. Merit is the good tree *and
GALLS THEM DOWN
Actor Henry Miller Reproves
Unseemly Mirth In Gallery
The fine London luxury of a "boo
ing" gallery, or at least a promising
equivalent, was enjoyed by a St. Paul
audience last night at the Metropolitan
opera house. . The patrons of this high
jrrade theater were privileged also to
see Actor Henry Miller cut the gordian
knot of "Joseph Entangled" by ringing
down the curtain, and then reprove the,
gallery for its "blackguardism."
In the- midst of the breakfast scene,
or second scene of the first act, the In
tellectual dainties of the stage palled on
the palate of one Olympian. He laughed
like a certain Australian bird. Some of
his neighbors, detecting eventually the
point of his witticism, added sounds
equally manegerialfl Blithe repartee thus
grew by what it fed on until the heavens
resounded with the roar. Presently the
balcony, parquet and boxes were able to
understand as much of the stage con
versation as the gallery had understood
When the play had thus descended to
mere motion the curtain fell abruptly. Mr.
Miller came forth, disentangled, but not
relieved. He said he regretted that he
had to step out of his part, but he felt
obliged to do something "on behalf of
the ladies and gentlemen in his com
pany," and he added, with discriminating
accent, the ladies and gentlemen in the
audience. He wished to protect them all
against such "blackguardism."
The gallery humorists were trying by
this time to think up rarer jokes, or
perhaps they had been suppressed. They
made no reply to Mr. Miller. The lower:
parts of the house applauded him.
When the curtain rose again the sec
ond scene went back to its beginning,
and the play proceeded without further
Settle Case Out of Court
The damage suit against the Chicago
Great Western railroad, brought by R.
D. O'Brien, as administrator of the es
tate of H. H. Holman, has been set

ing $500, Holman was killed in a
railroad accident and the suit to recov
er damages was brought in the United
States district court.
As He Saw the Problem
"What makes you lead thia idle life?"
"Mister," said Plodding Pete, "I never
fought about dat side of de question.
What I've been tryin' to figure out is why
so many people go to work."—Washing
tatives in large number from New
York, Chicago, and various parts of the
country attended the formal opening of
this building and a banquet last even
ing at the Post Tavern as guests of C.
The publishers inspected the 14 or 15
factory buildings of this father of the
prepared food industry with especial
interest, for it has grown to Its present
colossal proportions in a trifle less than
9 years, a marked example of the
power of good and continuous adver
tising of articles of pronounced merit
sunshine makes the apples grow. A
good salesman who knows how to talk
with his pen can present the logic,
argument and salesman ability to
thousands of customers at one time
through the columns of the newspaper,
a strong contrast to the old-fashioned
way of talking to one customer at a
He spoke of the esteem of the ad
vertiser for a publisher that takes
especial interest in making the adver
tising announcements attractive. Ad
vertisements should contain truthful
information of interest and value to
readers. The Postum methods have

world and about doubled the popu
