Lennon's Offer The directors of the Commercial club •will specially consider the matter of an auditorium for St. Paul at a meeting called for Saturday night. Yesterday the directorate met and the letter of G. E. Lennon announcing that he was willing under certain conditions to give $_,000 for an auditorium was read. The matter of such an enterprise was of such importance that the directors decided to consider it at a special meeting and the call for Saturday night was made. All the directors and officers of the club favor the erection of a large com modious auditorium in the near future and the only difference of opinion con cerning it was in tHe matter of size and location. President L. G. Hoffman said that he was in favor of the immediate develop ment of the proposal. "St. Paul should have an audito rium," said he. "It should be no small ■ affair such as would seat 2,000 or 3,000 persons. I believe that It should be big enough to accommodate 10,000. The additional number could be taken care of for little more than the cost of a smaller building, and while we are at it I believe the thing should be well done. "I was surprised to see In an after noon paper that I favored a small building. My views on the subject are well known and I think it would be an inexcusable mistake for St. Paul to build a hall that would surely prove too small. "Take the Kansas City convention nan. I understand that since the erec tion of that mammoth structure the very fact that the building exists in Kansas City has caused numerous en terprises to come there, such as big conventions that do a town a lot of good. Certainly we need an auditorium, but a small one would be a bad mis take."

Game and game legislation was thor^ oughly discussed as at the previous meeting. The feature of the evening was the address by Prof. S. H. Green of the forestry division of the state university, who spoke of the manner in which the interests of foresters and sportsmen were allied. "The interests of foresters and sportsmen are so closely allied," said Prof. Green, "that every school teach ing forestry also teaches its students much concerning game. The first principle in forestry provides for fire protection. The destruction of a. forest by fire exterminates much game. The forest law of this state has don« much to preserve the forests and the game therein, but for some reason or other it has never had the support it merited from the sportsmen of the state. "The state recently received from the government a gift of 20,000 acres near Burnside lake, in St. Louis coun ty, for forest purposes, which contains go»d fishing grounds and is well pro tected from fire. The reserve is closed to hunters to give the game a place for breeding. The forest reserve board has asked the legislature to provide funds to assist in protecting It, and Gov. Johnson has made the matter the ob ject of a special message to the legisla ture. The bill should receive the sup port of all sportsmen." Favor Closing Reserves The sportsmen present heartily sec onded the Idea. A general discussion brought out the fact that the sports men present were in favor of closing the reserves all over the state to hunt< ers. A motion to that effect was car ried, and congress and the legislature will be asked to pass laws to that effect. O. B. Clark, in view of the fact that several members of the organization at the previous meeting stated that they had violated the game laws at times, made a motion that every sportsmen present place himself on record on his honor as a man to obey the game laws to the letter. The subject of an open season for Jack snipe met with great objection. Many protested that if a man were allowed to be afield with a gun for snipe in the spring he would shoot other game as well. Also, the law if passed would conflict with the one recommended by the league at the pre vious meeting making it prima fade evidence of intent to shoot game out of season when caught with a gun and dog in the field before the first of Sep tember. The move-to recommend an open spring season was dropped. The same objections were raised when the subject of opening the rough grouse season on September 1 instead of October 1 was brought forward. Funds for Commission In order to furnish the game .and fish commission with sufficient "funds to protect the same,' O. B. Clark of Minneapolis proposed a $1 license for all nonresident fishermen who came hfre to fish. The law as proposed found little favor with the members who declared it impracticable and the motion was lost. The committee appointed last night by Chairman Steele of Minneapolis, to effect a permanent organization re ported last night that it had in tuwi appointed an executive committee to draw up a constitution and bylaw's. The committee Is as follows: J. EL Steele, Minneapolis, chairman; J. 1.. I >. Morrison, St. Paul; Martin O'Brien, C'rookston; Frank Werrick, Belle Plaine; M. L. Countryman, St. Paul; W. A. Kerr, Minneapolis; J. D. Hart ley. Duluth; G. D. Hamilton. Detroit, and L. S. Warm, St. Paul. The com mittee will meet within a short time and appoint officers. A voluntary contribution of $50 hav ing been secured from the members last night it was deemed expedient to elect a treasurer. Morton Barrows of St. Paul was elected unanimously. The league adjourned and will meet again, subject to the call of the presi dent, within the following year. The league will hold meetings annually.

The judge ' laid particular stress upon the Sc liindeldecker murder investigation which will come before the jury within a week, or as soon as the state can get its evidence into shape to present. Judge Kelly discussed the definition which the jury might accept of the term disorderly house when they un dertook to examine into the existence of any such places, declaring that they might be resorts quiet to outward ap pearances, but rife with evil within. He salti that the Jury, in investigating for crime under this head might in clude within its limits wine rooms and dance halls as well as the more ordi nary places to which the term is most generally applied. He congratulated the jury upon hav ing returned indictments, during the last session, against saloonkeepers whom they had found guilty of fur nishing intoxicating liquors to minors. He told the jury that convictions had followed in every case. Commenting upon the fact that a number of places In the county have taken out liquor licenses, the judge re marked that It was the duty of the jury to investigate into this matter and find if other places yet unlicensed were operating. The jury held a short session yester day, adjourning at noon for the day. The time when the Schindeldecker murder will come before it for investi gation is problematical as yet, and there is a possibility that the state will not betiWe to get its evidence in shape for presentation until after the prelim inary hearing, which occurs Tuesday, March 14.

The docu ment is dated Aug. 28. 1901. The will provides that the widow. Mrs. Mary Warner, shall receive an Immediate payment of $3,000 In lieu of the first regular annual allowance to the widow. She Is also .given, to hold during her life, the homstead on Col lege avenue, with the stables, horses, carriages and other vehicles, and all of the household furnishings, etc. Fur ther, she is to be given the income de rived from one-eighth of the residue of the estate after specified legacies are paid, or, if she wishes, a divided one-eighth of the estate. The balance of the estate, after leg acies mentioned in the will are paid. Is to be divided In equal portions among the seven children of the de ceased who are not otherwise provided for in the will. The apportionment of each is to become due when the age of 25 years is reached, or at the age of 21. if the executors see fit. The chil dren coming under this provision arc Reuben.

CHANCE TO ENTER CONTEST STILL OPEN Back and Extra Copies of The Globe Supplied on Demand Many letters are received daily by the manager of The Globe proverb contest in which the writers ask for information concerning points in the contest not cle^ar to them. These let ters are generally signed "Constant Reader" or "A Subscriber." They are unanswered because a rule of The Globe prevents the notice of letters which do not bear the name and ad dress of the writer. To insure an answer to inquiries correspondents should sign their full name if they desire the answer to ap pear in the columns of this paper. Otherwise they should inclose a two cent stamp with theic inquiry, that mail attention may be given to their questions. • A letter has been received from Park Rapids, as follows: The conditions of the contest say that we may send in as many answer? as we wish for each proverb. There is but one answer blank in_each paper. How may we get the extra answer blanks? Respect fully. —Frank Hardman. In answer to Mr. Hardman's inquiry the contest manager would say that back numbers of all papers published since the start of the contest may be secured at The Globe business office or will be sent by mail upon the receipt of the regular price, two cents for daily papers and five cents for Sun day papers. In ordering by mail contestants may either ask for copies of the paper con taining the proverb answer blanks they desire to get. by the number of the blank or by the date of the paper. Each proverb is numbered and the accom panying answer blank bears the cor responding number. So a correspon dent, for instance, may order, in de siring to secure the first proverb pub lished, either the issue of February 15 or the paper containing proverb pic ture No. 1, and so on down. A Fergus Falls correspondent writes that his family has become interested in the contest but that they neglected to save the first copies of the paper. He wishes to know how he may start now. Practically the same answer as that made to Mr. Hardman's question applies in this case. The papers, as many as he has missed, may be ordered by the numbers of the proverbs they contained.

The secretary said he would be very glad to come If it were not for his plan to visit the Philippines, which will necessitate his presence at the de partment to wind up his affairs. Miss Roosevelt expects to go on this trip and it is possible Representative Tawney and some other members of the house com mittee on insular affairs will also go. The war department will not make any purchases of horses for the army In St. Paul at present, as the troops have all and more than necessary owing to the re duction by live of each troop of cavalry- Congress authorized In a bill just i>. the purchase in local markets of army horses instead of by generalscontract. the latter method having proven unsatisfac tory. Representative Stevens Is Informed that the department will put in fore» a general policy of buying quartermasters' supplies of all sorts In local markets. —Walter K. Clark. PIONEER CITIZEN OF ST.

S. Cowan, Member of Min nesota's First Legislature, Recounts Reminiscences W. S. Cowan, of Lake Minnetonka, a member of the first Minnesota legisla ture, occupied a seat beside Speaker Claque at the opening of the session of the house yesterday. He was pre sented to the house by Carl Wallace, in whose district Mr. Cowan resides. Despite his 79 years, the veteran leg islator Is hale and hearty, and to a group of legislators recounted some of his pioneer legislative experiences. Mr. Cowan is father of the bill which cre ated the state agricultural college in 1858, and he and another country member claim the credit for saving the state university to Minneapolis. In that session of the legislature a bill was introduced abandoning the university because of the lack of funds with which to carry It along. The president was discharged by the board in charge of the institution, and a strong effort was made to drop the uni versity from the appropriation bill. Mr. Cowan successfully fought the bill, and the splendid state university is the outgrowth of the start made at that time. "We were in session for six months," Mr. Cowan said yesterday. "We were in session four months waiting for the action of congress admitting Minne- sota as a state, and our session con tinued two months after the admission of the state. While to present day leg islators a six months' session may sound alluring, to us it was the reverse, for we did not receive any money for our services. We were paid in state scrip. It was almost worthless, but we were able to barter with the St. Paul traders for boots and other neces saries. In actual money, however, the state pay amounted to nothing." Mr. Cowan squatted at Lake Minne tonka on a homestead in 1853, and has resided there ever since. CHILD BRIDE SUES DESERTING HUSBAND Ida Mulvina Ruley Wards Divorce From Capt. Gus Rifley Married at 15, deserted by her hus band ten weeks later, and now a peti tioner In the divorce court at 17 years of age. Such is the short, sad story of domestic unhappiness that is recited by Ida Mulvina Ruley. wife of Capt. Gus Ruley, a Mississippi river steam boat captain, in a complaint which was filed yesterday in the office of the clerk of the district court. In her complaint Mrs. Ruley alleges that she was married to Gus Ruley at Hastings, Minn.. September 11, 1903, when she was barely 15 years of age and he was about 19 years old. They earae at once to St. Paul to live and lived together for ten weeks at the end of which time, on November 28, 1903, her husband deserted her and has since remained away from her. refusing to support her and compelling her to throw herself upon the kindness of her parents for the means of support. She says that her husband Is earn ing a good salary and she asks that she be granted temporary alimony. ARRESTED ON CHARGE OF NOINSUPPORT Thomas Davis Denies Wife's Complaint and Alleges Divorce Thomas Davis, living on the West side, charged by his wife, Kliza. with nonsup port, entered a plea of not guilty before the police judge yesterday morning.
