Executive Council of S'rate
Federation Will Push
S vcral Bills
It was decided at the meeting of the
executive council of the State Federation
of Labor, held in Federation hall yester
day, to urge the passage by the coming
legislature of a compulsory educational
and free text book bill and to more clear
ly define the liability of employers in case
of accident.
The committee to have charge of the
work incidental to s-ecuring consideration
of the measures will consist of J. L.
Hughes and C. W. Douglas, of St. Paul;
Thomas Van Le.ar and John Regan, of
Minneapolis, and President Dix. of *the
state federation. They were- instructed
to at once get into touch with the lieu
tenant governor-elect and learn as soon
as possible the identity of the prospective
speaker of the house, it being decided
that the first and most necessary move
is to secure committees that will consider
the bills.
"If we do not pet into the game at the
beginning all'the preliminary work that
we have done will go for naught," said J.
L. Hughes. "If the committees are un
favorable to the propositions offered there
will be nothi !g to fight for, and we had as
well quit before we have begun. Com
pulsory education and free text books are
what we are drifting to. and employers
should be held liable for personal injuries,
but we cannot secure these boons for the
asking. Previous to the campaign we
went to the trouble of submitting to all
legislative candidates a series of ques
tions covering the points we think vital
In the legislation that will be considered
during the coming winter, and from a
large majority of thofe elected we hold
pledges to vote for our measures. With
out the committees that will report upon
our bills it will be impossible to hold the
legislators to theh- promises."
T. F. Thomas, of Rt. Paul, suggested
that a committee should be appointed and
authorized to at once get in touch with
the situation and if possible to go arrange
matters that the most important of the
bills to be considered by the legislature
will at least get before the two bodies of
the legislature and be voted upon.
The efforts of the state federation will
be reinforced by the trades assemblies of
St. Paul. Minneapolis. Duluth and other
Minnesota towns having labor unions.
committees having been appointed by the
various bodies to act with the state fed
eration. The local committees are ex
pected to keep in touch with the local
members of the legislature and keep the
state federntion posted as to their stand.
There will be a large number of other
measures introduced at the instance of
the labor unions, including one compelling
contracting builders to protect workmen
with permanent scaffolds in the construc
tion of tall buildings, and a bill licensing
plumbers, taking the place of the one
declared unconstitutional by the state su
preme court and following the lines of the
barbers' license law, which has been up

The cup was piesentcd to be competed
for among the various St. Paul compniiitrs
on the home rifle range. No competition
was arranged, however, until Company C
formally, challenged the other St. Paul
companies to^ competitive target practice

saying that he was In Mankato doing or
ganizing work and cauld not therefore be
present and hear read the letter from
President Gompejs. of the American Fed

state organizer.. The reason for so act
ing was given by Gampers as a lack of
funds. The fedenittau council applied for
the appointment.
The council has no arbitrary power to
discipline McCune for his alleged failure
to perform his duty, and at the meeting,
where it was decided to reprimand, it was
also voted to pay his salary, advising him
at the sniue time that the funds of the
organization are at a low ebb and that
expenses should be proportionately reduc
ed. A motion was passed instructing
President Dlx to refuse to authorize other
organizing expenses, as It will be neces

Minister Believes Conflict In

to Nations
"The Greatness of Japan." ag revealed

the theme that Rew Alexander McGregor,
pastor of the Park Congregational church,
discussed in a lecture at his church last
[ The development of Japan through -the
centuries.' Mr. McGregor said, had just

i now learning that there was in fact no

I miration. -': But -wljAre .came these forces?
j What " influence -. t?qp:ed - pre-eminently to
! the upbuilding of -*uch unexpected • viril
! ity?
"I put first, then," continued Mr. Mc-
Gregor, , 'the ' intense.loyalty of the Jap
anese to their nation, a patriotism that is
hardly. paralleled in all- the ages. It is a
i loyalty . that lias, raised; the people-so far
above the fear of death that, as we often
hear of ; late, '■ they even. court * death, seek
a needless destruction, merely to be rank
ed among their patriot, dead.- ■.-.. . . i ■■'■■
"The national activity and- strength of

; many, of us m the West understand, with*
in the last forty years. But persons that
j know the Japanese best, that. have . lived

virtues for hundreds 1 of years, and have
succeeded in developing a high moral code

"It is true that more than 300 yearn.ago

parently and seemed about to -permeate
the nation. But the Japanese became
suspicious of the church, not as a medium

forbade,. under extreme penalties, the
teaching of Christianity. This revolution

Few Fat Fowls Sighted for
Thanksgiving Tables
Those who look forward to long and
juicy sections of turkey as the big feature
of Thanksgiving day will be rather disap
pointed this year for, if the opinions of
local poultry experts are to be depended
upon, the turkey supply of 1904 will be
one of the poorest ser^-ed up to hungry
family providers for the past decade.
None of the large, fat, luxurious fowls
will be seen this year hanging in grim
silence, head downward and toes turned
toward the sky. for the uniformly warm
weather which has prevailed for the en
tire/all has had a tendency to reduce the
weight and quality of turkeys all over
the Northwest.
According to one well known fancier and
dealer in poultry, the turkeys this fall
will all be of the variety that gets out
-and hustles its own acorns and seeds.
The warm weather has had the effect of
keeping the turkeys out of their coons,
and the farmers naturally allowed the
fowls to do their own foraging, especially
when the latter were perfectly willing to
keep as far away from the barnyard and
thi> block as possible.
In cold weather the fowls are kept In
their coops, usually well covered and pro
tected against the frosts. They are then
fed regularly, and soon grow into a. state
of tenderness whit h brings delight to
those who care for the material joy of liv
ing. ,
The turkeys this fall are all of the flold
rained brand, and as a result are scrawny
and well bumped and toughened to a de
gree that would make a Minneapolis wwrd
politician look like a backwoods yuaker-
The greater part of them will be of the
smnlW variety and will be natives of
Minnesota, although North and South Da
kota and Wisconsin are expected to fur
nish their usual supply.
Prices will range in the vicinity of 20
cents a i>ound. with a probability of going
a few cents higher in the event of sev
eral large local commission merchants
succeeding in cornering the market, as
they now propose to do. The smaller fry.
however, have their buyers out. and are
making strenuous efforts to keep the price
within reasonable distance of their pros
pective customers.
Chickens, geese and ducks will be plen
tiful, and as a consequence low in price.
It is expected that good chickens can
be purchased for not over 12 cents a
pound, with geese ranging at 13 and 14
cents. Ducks will cost 1 cent a pound
more than geese, and will be the best
in years, as ducks thrive in warm weath
er and get so fat from waddling around
in their ponds, fishing both in and out of
season, that they will be the choicest
morsel in the fowl line this fall.-
Crajiberries are arriving in large quan
tities from the East. They will bring
from 10 cents a auart for the second grade
to 12% cents for a first-class berry.

Coanvil No. 50. U. C. T.. brings to light
[a : circular ',which; is ;in the Tpossession: of
every member of the organization. This
circular is so made out that the least im
perfection of a -.hotel- can be reported 1 to
. the hotef and transportation bureau of the
council, and steps taken to right the
.wrong within . a few . days. . .-^ ■" ■"
Circular Tells It All
The circular, made out in the form of
a report, contains spaces for protests on
the general condition of the hotel, its
dining rooms, its bed rooms. sample
.rooms, bus and transfer lines and charges.
The dining room list calls for reports on
the condition of the room, the quality and
.quantity of the bill of fare; its relative
value when compared to the price charged
by the hotel; the cooking, waiters, ven
tilation and heat, and even the table linen.
Every article must be scrutinized and re
ported by the traveler.
In the bed rooms department of the re
port spaces are found for the condition of
the room in general, the towels and basins,
the- sheets, pillows, quilts. springs and
mattresses. The presence or absence of
bed bugs forms one of the important
features of the room report, for it is a
well known fact that the average traveling
man and the festive bed bug are sworn
enemies. Even a Harvard or a Wisconsin
drummer, with his college colors of crim
son floating through his mind, will not
tolerate a bed bug. although the bug is
usually a beautiful crimson in color.
The general report on the hotel con
tains instructions for information on the
condition In which the offices are kept,
the water closets and toilet rooms, and a
long space after the proprietor's name, in
order to find out his usual manner of
treating traveling men. The sample
rooms receive especial attention, and
■paces are left* for remarks not included
in the general category of complaints.
Movement a Success
"There is no doubt that we have suc
ceeded even beyond our fondest expecta
tions." said Mr. Faber, to a Globe re
porter last night, in talking over the
matter. "We supply all the members of
the local council with the blanks, and as
a traveling man is the best judge of a
hotel on earth, we get some pretty com
prehensive complaints. The mere fact,
however, that a complaint comes in, does
not warrant an immediate protest to the
manager or proprietor of the hotel. We
make allowances and institute a thor
ough investigation before taking any ac
"At every meeting of the council the
reports received are read to the members,
and remarks invited. Oftentimes, we find
that the memters may defend certain ho
tels, and then the matter is sifted to the
bottom. Where the general opinion pre
vails that the complaint is based on good
and sufficient causes, we refer ft to the
secretary of the'committee, and he sends
the hotel management a polite, letter, call
ing attention to the shortcomings of the
"The manager is invited to make the
desired chnnges in the manner of con
ducting his hotel, and told that ample
time will be allowed for the institution of
new rules and accommodations. In the
meantime, the members are told not to
take any adverse action against the hotel,
and not to discriminate against it in any
manner. We want to give the manager a
chance to come to time.
"Almost all the replies which we re
ceive from those letters are sent as
though the hotel manager received our
little missive in the spirit in which it
was sent, and contain the information
that the changes will be made immediate
ly. Replies like this are the kind we
want._*B it shows that hotels value the
patronage of the traveling men.
"Occasionally we get a reply from man
agers stating that they are running their
hotels, and that they do not invite any
interference on our part. This reply is
transmitted to the members, and they can
take whatever action they deem fit. Gen
erally the manager sees that he is losing
business. Our members will patronize a
second class hotel that is run in a proper
manner rather than to stay at one of the
so-called first class ones run in a slip
shod way.
Bus Lines Included
"Bus linos are handlod in the same way
as hotels. We demand reports from trav
elers regarding the way In which their
I>ag£age is handled, and if the prioes are
too nigh. th»" s<-ivicts poor, or the attend
ants not up to the standard, changes are
demanded, and usually made. The house
employing the salesmen is benefited in
this particular, as bus charges always go
into the expense account, and many in
stances hare been noted of decreased
charges, as well as improved service.
'"Although we have effected a great Im
provement, we are stfll keeping up the
good work, and expect to have every hotel
of any prominence in the Northwest on
the right side of our books before another
year has passed.*'
Rowdies Start Fight on the

The police of Minneapolis and St. Paul
are mutripg a strenuous efforts to locate
three young men who boarded an owl
car from Minneapolis last night and
started a disturbance which led to a free
for-all fight and ahnost ended in the
serious injury of several of the passen
The young men were evidently looking
for trouble when they boarded the car. At
Cromwell avenue one of them slapped a
woman passenger on the face with his
glove, and the conductor ordered the trio
to the street. They refused to go, and
attacked the conductor, but with, the aid
of several able-bodied male passengers
were finally forced from the car.
Once in the street they pelted the car
with stones, one of them even going so
far as to force his way into the motor
man's vestibule. A stone narrowly missed
hitting a woman passenger, as it crashed
through a window and fell on the car

Delegation Will Declare Ob
jections to Paving Reas
sessment Today
Fifth warders will attend the session, of
the board of public works this afternoon
in large numbers to protest against the
reassessment for the paving of West Sev
enth street, from Ramsey street to Tus
carora. expecting to lay a foundation for
a second appoal to the courts.
There is considerable feeling in the ward
on the subject and it is expected that <
there will be a good attendance of those •
desiring to protest against the board of :
public works fixing the assessment district '
as it has been mapped out. The citizens
of the ward claim that they have not been !
given a legal notice of a hearing on the
subject, and that they propose to continue !
the lisnt. The amount involved is some
thing more than $6D,000 and is for the
brick and sandstone paving.
The city appropriated $50,000 from the
general fund to assist in paying for the
pavement, but this did not satisfy the
property owners and they went into court j
The contention was upheld in the courts
on the ground that they had not been
given the necessary postal curd notice
when it was decided to pave the thorough
fare. Judge Brill has since decided, •how
ever, in the Payne avenue case, that the
board of public works has the power to
reassess, no matter what irregularities
occurred as to the original assessment
The property owners who continue to
fight tHe proposition are composed of two
factions. One is made up of those who
own property abutting on West Seventh
street, and the others are owners of side
street residence, property. The latter con
tend that they should not be assessed
and the former think the district should
be extended. Both raise the point that
the charter has not been conformed to
in laying out the district and that the city
at large should be compelled to bear the
cost of the improvement.
*v '""if- board of public works listened to
the objections before fixing upon the dis

of the boanl. "and in the end was com
ptlled tn agree upon the territory. Some
wanted ttie district extended and others

Continued From First Page
There was a cleaning-out over there, I
am told, some weeks ago. and many were
driven to St. Paul."
Rev. Benjamin Longley. pastor of the
Centra] Park M. E. church, agreed with
Dr Morgan to the extent of recognizing
publicity as a cogent remedy for such
abuses as the "tough dance."
"So long as we let things go." Mr.
Longley said, "so long as we agree with
that large body of people who prefer to
let well enough alone, just so long will
violations of public decency continue to in
"In all large cities, no doubt, there is
considerable laxness on the part of the
police. But a man who Is In a position
to know exactly what the facts are, a
man whom I rely upon, has informed me
that certain officials here who have taken
their oaths to uphold the law and protect
the public are doing just as little in those
directions as they possibly can. I n such
cases publicity, and the consequent pres
sure of public opinion, would probably
bring about a reformation."
"The demoralizing dances should be
stopped." said Rev. Alexander McGregor,
pastor of the Park Congregational church,
"and there ought to be enough moral
force in this coinmnity to see that they
are stopped. I feel certain that there i 3,
"The arm of the law must be relied
upon to call the actual halt. But be
hind the law is the moral force that isn't
always apparent. It should be aroused.
Officers of the law must be convinced
that the neglect to remedy those abuses
Is not a concession to public opinion. Our
people, I'm sure, will do something as
soon as the facts become known, to put
an effective check upon the vicious dances
described by Mr. Morgan."
Declaring that he had been robbed of
his watch, a man who gave his name as
M. Kamm, pointed out to Patrolman
Malmquist a man walking along Wabasha
street last night, and told the officer to
arrest him.
When Malmquist searched the fellow a
silver watch with a chain attached was
found in his pocket. Ramm fndentified
the timepiece as his own, and the two men
were sent to the station, the owner of the
watch being; held as a witness, and the
other, who gave his name as Joseph Ma
lonejr. charged with petit larceny. Ramm
said Maloncy snatched the watch from his
pocket in a Wahasha street saloon, where
they had been drinking together.

In a speech on the differences between
a business administration and a just ad
ministration, at Metropolitan hall yester
day afternoon. Milton H. Rogers, a So
cialist Labor leader, charged that tho
Haynes administration in Minneapolis was
just m much steeped in crime as the

of both parties in Minneapolis were in
competent to administer the affairs of
"I do not attach " any blame to the
Haynes or the Ames gang, beyond that
which attaches itself to the trail of ev

the people." said Mr. Rogers. "I blame
the people of Minneapolis, for they have
been given their choice between voting for
the grafters who lead both parties, and
voting for the sublime principles of the
Public Ownership party, under whose form,
of government graft and illegal expendi
