NEWS OF THE CITY TELLS Of SILENT DEADLY MUCH OF THE OREAT WHITE PLAGUE Dr. R. B. Leach Paints the Hundreds Who Daily Die as the Result of Ignorance and General Carelessness, Shows How the Dread Disease Is Spread and Fostered, and Estimates the Pecuniary Loss Sustained as the Final Argu ment Why There Should Be United Action Against the Scourge Just 697 more people in Minnesota died <ii consumption during the year of 1904 than from all other infectious diseases combined, according to Dr. R. B. Leach. Dr. Leach spoke on the white plague a.t Woodman's hall, West Ninth street, near Exchange, before a large audi ence last night on the cause, progress and treatment of consumption, and strongly recommended a state sani tarium for persons afflicted with the disease. It was the opinion of Dr. beach that consumption was one of the gravest dangers that menaced the people of the world at the present time, and that but slight measures had been taken to check it. Dr. Leach said- Store people have died from consump tion in its different forms throughout the world during the past year than from any other disease, and yet the disease is al lowed to spread. When smallpox is dis- Qovered in a community no time- is lost in hustling the afflicted person or pel sons to the detention hospital. Houses, and sometimes whole districts, are quarantin ed and no stone is left unturned tv wipe out all traces of the disease. It is the game with scarlet fever and all other in fectious diseases, and yet no steps have been taken to check a disease which statistics prove to lie five times as fatal a.s any other infectious disease. In the state of Minnesota during 1904 1,<!7:; deaths were due to consumption. 331 to typhoid fever. 2<io to diphtheria. r"."■ to bronchitis, and of these many were really consumption, IG6 to scarlet fever. tji' resulted from whooping cough, 52 from croup, 23 fro-m measels, 55 were due to qpnebro spinal meningitis and 19 to small pox. Still in the face of these statistics consumption is allowed to spread un checked. On July 4 of the past year over 500 per sons died as the result of accidents due to the use of explosives. The high death rate caused great comment and the pro hibiting of the use of explosives on that day has been widely urged. Still on that Same July 4 410 people died from con sumption and nothing was said. Sympathy Comes Too Late There are not the proper safeguards against the white plague. Measures should be taken, to insure the protection of a man from the disease and for his cure if Infected instead of sympathizing with the widow afterwards and recounting numer ous other cases where people have died, from the same disease. "Consumption should be isolated just ns well as smallpox patients and those Buffering with yellow fever are. Instead they are allowed to frequent all public places, thus exposing hundreds of per- Bons to the disease, for it is a well known fact that consumption is one of the mo.st infectious diseases known to medical science. Many states, including Minne sota, spare no expense or care to cure consumptive criminals, and their efforts have in^t with great success. No steps have been taken, however, to cure an honest but poor consumptive, and it would seem from this that the only course left open to a poor man suffering from the disease is to commit a felony and go over the road. No lace can say that they are immune rrorn consumption, and a person's age does not make the slightest difference. The open air cure is known to l>e the best germicide in existence, and yet as a general rule the friends and relatives of a consumptive do their best to keep the patient shut out from all fresh air and sunlight. Silent Death March One reason perhaps that consumption had made such headway unnoticed is that SISTERS CALM PANIC Pupils in St. Luke's School Go Through Fire Scare A panic among the school children at St. Luke's school, Portland avenue and Victoria street, was narrowly averted by the sisters in charge of the institution yesterday morning. A few minutes before 11 o'clock smoke was noticed coming from the basement and someone cried fire. The children were on the verge of a stampede, but were calmed by the Bisters, who sounded the fire drill and sik.ceded in getting all the children safely out of the building. The smoke was due to a pile of rub bish in the basement of the building that had in some manner caught fire Chemical No. C was called and quickly extinguished the blaze. MEW INCORPORATIONS Articles of incorporation were filed yesterday with the secretary of state for the Golden Rule Clothing com pany of Duluth with a capital of $50, --000. The incorporators are Max Zalk, H. Y. Josephs, S. Buchman and S. Y. Josephs. The Oawford-Dickey company of Minneapolis filed articles with a stock of $20,000. The Albert Lea Brick and Tile company filed amended articles ' ffiK^ STRENGTH mr* of Me WHEAT '^W i Baa? DR. R. B. LEACH Who Spoke on the White Plague at Woodmen's Hall. it is not spectacular. Communities are never swept from the earth as they some times are by cholera. Hut the deadly work goes on just the same Perfect health and sanitary quarters are the best preventatives for consumption, and this is closely shown by a study of the negro lace. Before the war when the negro worked out in the open air and was provided with ample quarters by his owner consumption was almost un known. Since the war the negro has been attracted to the cities, and it is well known that they have a tendency to hud dle together. Dozens of families live to together in one room almost without any ventilation, and now after a jH+iod of Forty years the negro race suffers three times as heavily from the white plague as do the while race. In a few state where sanitariums for consumptives have been conducted there lias been a marked success in eyring the disease, it is eoßspasativety an aasy mat ter to cure a i>atient in the first stage* of the disease if he is given the prop er tieatrnent. and this only can be given in a sanitarium where the consumptive is isolated from the rest of the world. The disease in the second stage can also be cured and numerous instances are on rec ord where a patient believed to be in the last stag**.-; of the dis ase and Ix-yond all aid has been completely cured by treat ment at a sanitarium. 010 Idea Was Wrong Another thing," a consumptive should always be informed as to his exact con dition. The old idea of keeping the patient m Ignorance of his malady did more harm than good, but considering that a few years ago consumption was believed to be Incurable the idea wa.s not so bad. Now. however, that the disease can be cured the patient should be told everything, as h<? can greatly aid his recovery if he knows his condition. It has been said consumption is heredi tary. ai>d this in true, which is in itself a strong argument that consumptives should be segregated from the rest of the world. I believe that in many cases children have Inherited the disease through kisses ex changed by their parents. The state has appropriated |25.9 M for the purchasing of ■ site and the building of a sanitarium at Walker. Minn., but of this $G.OUO has been expended in purchas ing a site which has n<. c<i»ial anywhere. But the remaining money is iwmJßctent to ciect a sanitarium that would be of any use. The state should be used tc appropriate $l>oo.ooo for a consumptive sanitarium for the honest poor of the state. This I relieve would be an economy to the state. The average human life is valued at about S-'.GiH). being of that worth l<> any state, and it is estimated that during the period of a man's life when he is able to work he earns about $12,000. The loss to the state of Illinois for each year during 1001-2-3 was $36,551,800. due to deaths from consumption, and the annual loss to the I'nited States fi<«n the same cause amounts to $2,340,000,000. This would seem to indicate that some steps should be taken to check the disease. With a. modern sanitarium at Walker for consumptives of this state in five years the death rate due to this disease would be cut in two. and at the same time thousands of people who are now exposed to the germs every day would be safe. Care for a consumptive at the right time and in the right way until he is cured, not at the wrong time and in the wrong way until he is dead. JAP BELIEVES PEACE IS STILL EAR OFE K. Yoshizawa, Vice Consul at London, Cannot See End of War S. Shimizu. consul general of Japan at Chicago, and K. Yoshizawa, vice consul at London, accompanied by their families, secretaries and employes Payed through St. Paul yesterday from Tokyo on their way to their respective posts. They were at the Merchants hotel yesterday afternoon, and Mr Yoshiswwa. who has been in the con sular Ml Nice of his country for several years and who speaks English with fluency, had Ihe following to say with regard to conditions in Japan "We 'eft Tokyo March 11.' the day after ti * news of the fall of Mukden was no hred at the capital. Of course there w s a feeling of jubilation ap parei:'. everywhere in the city, but the real c. I oration of Oyama's victory will not tak? place until April 3, when such a demonstration as Japan never saw will b^ shown. "It is my personal opinion that peace is not ai hand. Of course one man's guess is as good as another's and mine is that it v.iJl be some time before a protocol is signed. "The harvests in Japan have been bountiful and home conditions are ex cellent Domestic loans have been floated in fine shape three different times, and the foreign loans that have been made have been on a perfectly satisfactory basis. "Japanese are generally confident of the outcome of the war. just as they have been since the commencement of hostilities." The children of the Japanese diplo mats attracted a great deal of attention about the corridors of the hotel. Among them were two little girls who were dressed in American clothes. The wom en of the party also wore American dresses.

The accident occurred about 10:30, when an engine anj five cars toppled from the elevated tracks running to a line of coal sheds, crashed on the tracks be low and overturned. William Nadeau, the engineer, was pinned to the groundjn the cab of the dismantled engine and was unable to move. An exhaust valve was snapped short off when the engine overturned and the scalding steam and water es caped at will. Luckily, Nadeau was slightly out of the path of the steam and water and was rescued before th» steam reached him. although he was slightly scalded by the boiling water. ' K. E. Merrill the fireman, was hurled through the cab window as the engine toppled over the incline and struck on his back some distance from the over turned cars. He wap badly bruised, but wot seriously injured. Harry B. Madden, a switchman, was standing on top of one of the box cars and was hurled to the ground, striking on his head. He was picked up unconscious and taken to him home, 544 De Soto street. Internal injuries are feared. The engine was partially demolished, and will have to be entirely overhauled before it is again fit for service. The freight cars were jammed against each other and badly wrecked.

PAPER ON THE LIED E. C Murdock Delivers Lecture Before Schubert Club E. C. Murdock read a paper on '"The Development of the Lied" before the students' section of the Schubert club yesterday afternoon in the Odeon. A crisp and epigrammatic style and an independent point of view imparts marked individuality to all Mr. Mur dochs lectures, and his broad and up to date scholarship makes them delight fully informing. Beginning with the folk song in its most primitive form a •composition without a composer," he described graphically the influence upon It of the German minnesingers and mastersingers; he pointed out the potent influence of church counter point in solidifying its form and traced its subsequent development into the Italian coloratura. In succession Mr. Murdock dealt with the art song, the art ballad—"music drama in miniature"—and with the Schumann. Schubert and Franz songs. He contrasted Brahma, the youthful romanticist, with Brahms, the mature classicist, and unstintedly praised the composer for his devotion to purity of form practiced in an age that was al ready beginning to forswear musical form for tone expression and tone color. Analyzing the works of the moderns, he mentioned as shining ex amples Wagner, the master, and then Strauss and Hugo Wolf, and skillfully laid bare their methods and indicated their tendencies. The lecturer illustrated both by means of the piano and the voice the development of the lied as traced in the works of the more prominent com posers. The piano illustrations were most in formal.but Mr. Murdock's exceptionally delightful touch made his briefest in strumental expositions attractive to the ear. The one fault to be found with the lecture was that the lecturer's voice was pitched too low tQ reach all parts of the hall and much of it was undoubtedly lost to those who sat in the rear. Lewis Shawe sang a number of songs to illustrate the points made in the lecture. "LJebeshymnus." by Strauss, as sung by him was a genuine artistic success. His reading of it was sympa thetic, and. from the standpoint of vo cal art. it revealed his voice at its best. The same artistic finish that made this song delightful was noticeable in Schu bert's "Der Doppelganger." and in two songs of Schumann's, "Ich hab' in Traum geweinet" and in "Der Xuss buum." Loewe's "Edward." which he also sang. was somewhat lacking in dramatic strensth. HOMELESS BOY IS HELD AS FUGITIVE Arthur Kelly Tells Story of Want la the Police Court Among the many names on the po lice court tab yesterday morning was that of Arthur Kelly. Opposite the name was written, "fugitive from jus tice." Many speculations were heard as to the nature of the crime Kelly had committed, and just who Kelly was. Many were of the opinion that Kelly was a bank robber, some thought he might be a defaulter, others thought it possible he had murdered somebody. but all agreed that he must be a des perate man. When the clerk called the name of Arthur Kelly there was an eager cran ing of necks, but if those assembled in the court room expected to see a hard ened criminal stalk out of the bull pen they were greatly disappointed. For in answer to the clerk's call there ap peared a little boy 13 years old. thinly clad and sadly emaciated. His eyes were blinded with tears and the fea tures of his face worked convulsively in a determined effort to keep back the sobs. Judge Finehout appeared slightly as tonished as the small fugitive stood be fore him and inquired in a gentle voice what was the trouble. Sitting in the witness chair, his head barely on a level with the top of the railing sur rounding the clerk's desk, the boy told his story and it proved to be a pitifut one. His name was Arthur Kelly and he was in all truth a fugitive from jus tice, because he had taken $3.50 from the Chicago Great Western depot at Riceville. la. According to his story, the boy was a foundling and when 7 years old whs taken from the home by a farmer living near Riceville. For seven more years Arthur worked faithfully on the farm. but a few months ago the farmer sold the place and came to Minnesota. The new owner did not want young Kelly around and told him so. Absolutely friendless and without a place to find shelter the boy decided to come to St. Paul and try to find his old employer. Going to the station at Riceville he'in quired the fare to St. Paul. It was just $3.50. Returning to the station late in the evening Arthur found the station agent asleep. The temptation proved too strong. Creeping to ths cash drawer the boy took $3.50 in small change and tied into the darkness. At a small station a few miles away he purchased a ticket for St. Paul and arrived in the city tired and hungry early yesterday morning. In the meantime the theft had been discovered by the station agent and young Kelly's movements had been traced. The result was that when Ar thur alighted from the train at the union depot.he was met by two big detectives, who took him to the central station. At the station Arthur was kindly received and was introduced to ■ warm meal that caused him to forget all his worries. He readily admitted the theft of the 13.50. but said he hoped to find his old employer, again work for him and refund the money. He will be held at the county jail until the lowa authorities are heard from. STONE GETS PLACE Will Succeed Kerwin in the Attorney General's Office P. J. Kerwln. second assistant attor ney general, has sent in his resigna tion to Atty. Gen. Young, and Roy A. Stone of Morris, Minn., has been named to succeed him. Attorney Ker win comes from Waterville. Le Sueur county, and was a strong sup porter of Gen. Young. "I simply find that I do not like the work." said Mr. Kerwin yesterday. "It is very confining. There is no friction whatever and I have always had very pleasant relations with Gen. Young." The reason given for the resignation is that Attorney Kerwin expects to go to the Indian territory shortly to en gage in the practice of law and busi ness there. He has been investigating Beveral projects there and his hopes have been realized sooner than he ex pected when he took office. CYCLONE SUFFERER TO RECEIVE THE MONEY Judge Brill Holds City Cannot Be Gar ni sheed in This Case Judge Brill yesterday dissolved the garnishment proceedings brought by Isabella Bartl^tt against John D. Rat terman and the city of St. Paul. The garnishment proceedings were brought to seize the J3OO voted by the city to Ratterman. who was a sufferer through the tornado last August. In the ord.er granting the motion of the city and Mr. Ratterman the court takes the view that the city is not sub ject to garnishment except upon money owing from it to some party or other corporation, and that Ratterman has no legal claim upon the $300. which is still in the city treasurer. Therefore it is not liable to garnishment. TOWN OF FLETCHER WILL NOT PAY BONDS Colorado City Wins Appeal Made to United States Circuit Court Judge Hook in the United States cir cuit cort of appeals yesterday decided In favor of the town of Fletcher. Colo., by affirming the lower court in a case brought up on a writ of error regarding wait-r works bonds. The writ of error challenges a judg ment recovered by Samuel G. Hick man upon coupons from water works bonds. The defense set up was the in validity of the ordinance authorizing the bonds, and charges conspiracy be tween the mayor* and the majority of the trustees to sell bonds for a worth less property. The court holds that such acts of legality are not proven In the trial, and the lower court is upheld. IJ° P HOTEL EARLINGTON (Fireproof Construction) 27th St., &st.

Anderson was arrested on complaint of his wife. Louisa, who says her husband has not supported her for fourteen years. "I have taken care of my two girls and supported my husband by taking in washing for the last fourteen years," declared Mrs. Anderson, "and I don't intend to do it any longer." Anderson pleaded not guilty to the charge and said in his own defense that he was unable to secure work, as he had no acquaintances in the city. "He knows every saloonkeeper in town, judge." remarked Mrs. Ander son. The case will be tried Friday. CITIES WOULD AVOID CARE OF BLIND MAN Fred Gulke Waits in Cell While Min neapolis and Duluth Settle Dispute Fred Gulke. a blind man, now in the workhouse at Minneapolis, is a man without a country, while Duluth and the Mill city are both trying to avoid the responsibility of caring for him. The only solution of the question seems to be to bring his case before the board of control of the state. About a year ago dulke went to Minneapolis from Duluth to have his eyes treated. When the department of the poor was called to him his case was investigated and he was sent back to Duluth. When it was found that he would be dependent on the town he was packed off by the authorities and sent back to Minneapolis. Last Mon day he was sent to the workhouse in order that he might have some place to live while the case was being settled.
