PRINGLE WISHED GODSPEED ON HIS MISSION TO ALASKA Goodrich Avenue Church the Scene of the Parting: Resolutions of Esteem and Speeches of Appreciation He Will Depart for His New Field Tonight. They were a legion of friends who bade Rev. John Pringle farewell last REV. JOHN PRINGLE. evening at the Goodrich Avenue Presbyterian church. Dr. Pringle will leave this evening for Skaguay, Alaska, where he will enter the mission field of the Canadian Board of Home Missions. It was the close of a most successful ministry in this city by one zealous in the work of his choice and prominent in the charitable and educational work of the city. The church auditorium was crowded to overflowing, not only by the members of his own church and the clergy of the Presbytery of St. Paul, but with the laymen of the various Presbyterian churches in the city. Rev. A. B. Meldrum, pastor of the Central Presbyterian church, called the meeting to order with some highly original remarks, after which Mr. Charles A. McKean, the church clerk, read the following resolutions adopted by the congregation of the Goodrich Avenue church at their meeting Wednesday eight: St. Paul, Minn., March 2d, 1898. We, the members of Goodrich Avenue Presbyterian church, St. Paul, Minnesota, having rece-ived with great sorrow the resignation of our well-beloved pa»tor, the Rev. John Pringle, and being compelled to recognize in his removal from us a dispensation of Divine Providence which we may not question, take this means of expressing our sincere love for him. and our appreciation of all that he has been to us as a church. The term of his service with us, though all too brief, has yet been long enough for us to learn to know him not alone as pastor, but as leader, brother, friend. In his chief office as pastor, we have felt the uplift of his abounding faith ln the Blessed Redeemer, the stimulus of his zeal for tho extension of God's kingdom in this and every land, the strengthening influence of his sturdy fidelity to truth and righteousness. Out of a loving knowledge of God's holy word, he has given us a deeper sense of its power to help, through the Holy Spirit, ln the "trivial round, the common task" of dally life. The sacredness of common duties has been a favorite message with him, and will ever be a blessed reality to us. His preaching of God's message has been effectual to the salvation of souls and the building up of Christian character, and many lives are richer and better for his faithful ministry of the Word. Mr. Pringle'* leadership ln our worship and work, has made a deep and lasting mark upon our church life. The church, to him. is no merely human device, but a divine organism, the earthly representative of the risen and exalted Christ. The order and beauty of her warship, the virtue of her sacraments, the unity of her fellowship, have been dear to his heart, and enforced by his teachings and example. He has taught us much of the grace of giving to God, and helped up to largely increase our oflerlngs to the church's work at home and abroad. His uncomplaining self-denial !n the midst of financial stress, and his invaluable aid to the trustees in their difficult work, we car. never sufficiently acknowledge. His constant a!d In the Sunday school and the Society of Christian Endeavor, have earned our heartiest thank?. Mr. Pringle has endeared himself to us. not only ln the activities directly connected with our church, but in all the social relations of life. Alike in the home, the hospital and the public school, he has shown a true Interest in the concerns of his people and their neighbors. He has borne the comfort of the Gospel to the sick and the sorrowing, and the cheer of a manly fal'h to the burdened and the discouraged. He has helped many to find employment, and brought aid to many who were in distress. He has visited the widow and the fatherless in their affliction, and kept himself unspotted from the world. And now that God's call has come to our pastor, leader, friend, to go far hence and bear witness amid Arctic ".nowa to the truth of the everlasting Gcspel, we say, as the disciples said to St. Paul in Caesarea of old, "The will of the Lord be done." May the blessings of the Triune God, wfo'ch he hai- so often invoked up us. most richly abide upon him and his. May his work continue to be owned and richly rewarded. Our love and our prayers shall go with him, and we shall be joined with him In FINE ICE, PLENTY OF IT. St. Paul Will Have a Better Quality Of It This Year Than Ever. There will be no lee famine this year in St. Paul. An abundant supply of ice has been harvested by all of the companies this winter, and all the ice houses are full. And it is said to be a finer quality of ice than has been had ln many years. This is due, so it is said, to the uniformly cold weather that prevailed from December to the latter part of February. During that period there were no thaws, the thermometer registering twenty-five degrees at the highest. The fall of snow was also light, bo that impurities that usually get into the ice were avoided. "There is plenty of ice this winter," said Secretary Z ; mmermann,of the People's Ice comDany, to a Globe reporter yesterday. "Our five storage houses are full, and we shall have no difficulty in supplying the demand next summer. Our ice is obtained from Mc- Carron's lake, White Bear lake and Lak3 Phalen. W r e began to harvest on Dec. 26 and stopped Feb. 28. We never had better Ice. It ranges In thickness from eighteen to twenty-three inches, and is as clear as glass. It is remarkably free from carbon and soot. This ls because there were no thaws. The price of ice will be the same as usual." A similar report on the ice crop was given by Secretary Hardy, of the St. Paul Lake Ice company. "The ice never was so clear," he said. There are no black spots in it. We harvested 28,000 tons."

Now, our Lord Jesus Christ Himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved ua, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace, comfort our hearts, and establish us in every good word and work. Unto Him be glory both now and forever. Amen. Supt. Beckwith, on behalf of the Sunday school and the officers of the school, read a set of resolutions touching upon the departure of Dr. Pringle. Dr. M. D. Edwards, pastor of the Dayton Avenue Presbyterian church for the presbytery of St. Paul, made a few remarks, telling of the spirit of unity which had always prompted Dr. Pringle ln his work with the presbytery of St. Paul. Dr. Edwards paid a glowing tribute to Dr. Pringle by eulogizing his work as pastor of the Goodrich Avenue church Many barriers had been encountered by their departing member during his three years' pastorate, but his sterling qualities had carried him safely through it all, and he had secured the respect of the clergy and laymen of St. Paul alike. Dr. Edwards read a resolution of regret passed by the St. Paul presbytery at their meeting yesterday morning. Resolutions were then read by the president of the Y. P. S. C. E. of the Goodrich Avenue church, which, in warm terms, spoke of the Impetus which had been given their meetings by the presence of the tall and strong figure of Dr. Pringle. Dr. Pringle then responded to the sentiments of esteem and wishes of success from the presbytery and the church societies. He would he said take nothing but pleasant memories of the two years and three months of his pastorate In St. Paul. He appreciated keenly the expressions of good will which had been expressed on evenhand, and asked the members of his church to remember him ln their devotion. The work in the frontier country was not new to him, and he left that duty called him. Dr. Meldrum, moderator of the meeting, stated that Dr. Davis, dean of Macalester college, was expected soon and they would sing a hymn whtle waking for Dr. Davis. In the meantime Dr. Davis came In, and at the conclusion of. the hymn Dr. Meldrum introduced Macalester's dean by calling him "the late Mr. Davis." Dr. Davis responded happily to the sally by turning it off on President Wallace, of Macalester, who was present. Dr. Wallace, who next spoke, Indulged in a little Scotch sarcasm, which highly amused the audience. He told many pleasing anecdotes about Dr. Pringle and his ministry at Rochester, and his service as financial agent or Macalester college. Dr. Davis was again called upon by Dr. Meldrum, who stated that Dr. Pringle had already responded to any nice things he might have to say. Dr. Davis started out by acknowledging that both he and Dr. Pringle were born under the English Jack, and indulged in some pleasantries on that score. In closing, Dr. Davis said during his, Dr. Pringle's, pastorate and service as financial agent of the college and the faculty, they had only learned to love him, and it was with sincere regret that they took leave of him. Dr. Pringle closed the service by pronouncing the benediction. At the close nearly all the congregation went forward to personally bid their departing pastor farewell. Rev. John Pringle wars born in Oharlottetown. Prince Edward's Island. In IS7O he entered the Kingston seminary, after which he took a course in Moran college. He graduated from Moran college in 1879, and was first ordained as pastor of the Georgetown Presbyterian chnrch. He served four years, when he accepted a call to the Old Red River Valley Settlement, where he remained four years. From there he went to Port Arthur, where he became pastor of the First Presbyterian church. He spent eight profitable years there, doing much work among the miners. In 1891 he took charge of the church at Rochester, Minn. In 1893 he came to St. Paul as financial agent of the Macalester college. Shortly after he became pastor of the Goodrich Avenue church. wearing a suit of clothes alleged to belong to Eric Ericson, was tried in the police court yesterday and discharged. McDonough claimed to have purchased the apparel. Women Should Remember THAT • --—--PM — ■— — -___)—■— _■_■ Lydia E.

DUNN AFTER MORE LANDS SEEKING FINAL RULING ON DOUBLE MINIMUMS State Auditor Believes Minnesota Ia Entitled to Tliem Under the Act of 1800 Twelve Cases Taken Up ——Appeal to the Secretary of the Interior for Justice. State Auditor Dunn has filed an even dozen appeals with the secretary of the Interior taking exception to the decision of the general land offlce against the state of Minnesota ln the matter of the possession of double minimum swamp lands. Both the registrars and receivers of the land offlce at Marshall and St. Cloud refused to concede that the state was entitled to the double minimum swamp lands located within the place limits of the right of ways of railroads enjoying a state land grant. The question has frequently been referred to the general land office, and in every case, with one exception, was the decision against the state. State Auditor Dunn thinks the state has a clear title to all such double minimum lands, and to this end he has carried the matter to the interior department. From recent advices a decision may be expected soon. The twelve cases appealed by Auditor Dunn involve over 1,000 acres of choice swamp land located in the southern part of the state on even numbered sections along the right of way of railroads. This property Is situated ln the midst of the finest farming region in tlie state, and is easily worth $15 per acre. Aside from the $15,000 Involved, the precedent which will be established by the interior department will determine for all time the ownership of double minimum swamp lands in this state. If the case is decided— in favor of the state, it will mean the reverting back to the state of lands in all parts of Minnesota during the next year, the value of which will easily exceed $50,000. Mr. Dunn contends that the state is entitled to all such swamp lands under the provisions of the general swamp land grant in 1860. The grant of 18G0 cedes all the swamp land in the state of Minnesota to the state. The officials of the general land offlce claim that the government in their grant of 1857 intended to reserve for all time the double minimum lands, and that the swamp land grant of 1860 does not effect such swamp lands as lay within the even numbered sections along the right of way of railroads which acquired their lands by grant. In July, 1857, the government made a grant to the state known as the railroad grant. This grant was made for the purpose of encouraging the construction of railroads within the state. Under its provisions the state could cede to the railroad companies odd-numbered sections along the surveyed right of way, for a distance of six miles on either side. The even-numbered sections the government retained for its own use and purposes. This land was offered for sale by the government, at what is known as a double minimum prloe. WITH GIBBS PRESIDENT MINNESOTA'S OMAHA EXPOSITION COMMISSION ORGANIZES It Was Decided Tliat 925,000 Shall Be Expended in Making an Exhibit Jnst What This WIH Embrace it en, ni -ik toi Be Determined Later Prospective Plans. The commission appointed by Gov. Clough, recently, to arrange for a proper representation of Minnesota products at the Trans-Mississippi exposition, held its first meeting yesterday in the governor's offlce at the capitol. An organization was perfected, and plans looking to the securing of funds and exhibits from this state was outlined. Ihe following officers were elected at the afternoon session: President J. L. Gibbs, Freeborn county. Vice President— R. A. Kirk, St. Paul. Secretary— E. C. Danforth, Minneapolis. Treasurer— W. D. Kirk, St. Paul. Executive Committee— C. H. Graves. Duluth; A. T. Stebbins, Rochester; E. J. Phelps, Minneapolis. The officers of the association and the executive committee will act together in the administration of the affairs of the association. The following commissioners were present: W. D. Klrk, George R. Finch, Conde Hamlin, R. A. Klrk and C. P. Noyes, St. Paul; E. J. Phelps, W. W. Heffelflnger, L. C. Pryor. J. Newton Nind and E. L. Danforth, of Minneapolis; A. T. Stebbins, Rochester; H. Wilson, Faribault; J. H. Rich, Red Wing; John L. Gibbs, Geneva; E. G. Valentine, Breckenridge; George Pervis, Crookston; John I. Bernard, Pipestone. Gov. Clough explained the reasons for having appointed the commission. The failure of the legislature to make an appropriation for the exhibit was due to a general misunderstanding as to the scope and importance of the exposition. He was of the opinion that Minnesota could not afford to miss being represented, and the commission should see to it that the exhibit was a credit to the state. He believed $25,000 would be sufficient to pay the expenses, and there was no doubt that the next legislature would reimburse those who advanced the funds. The advance would be in the nature of a loan. George R. Finch had traveled over the state and everywhere had been met with the suggestion that the counties be asked to guarantee the amount needed, as at the time of the world's fair. Gov. Clough believed that was the most practicable way of raising the funds. The fact that the legislature had promptly repaid counties after the world's fair would be a guarantee to them that lt would be done again. His experience of twelve years in and about the legislatures of this state had taught him that the legislators would not be backward about reimbursing those who advanced the funds for a project so important. The meeting was organized by the election of E. J. Phelps, of Minneapolis, as chairman, and E. L. Danforth as secretary. The greater part of the morning was spent in an informal discussion of the scope of the exhibit and the best methods of raising funds and collecting the articles. It was the unanimous opinion that there should be an educational exhibit, and that all of the varied resources of the state should be shown to the best possible adventage. J. Newton Nind, on behalf of McLeod & Lamereaux, Minneapolis architects, presented the plans for a neat state building In cottage form, to be erected of undressed logs of the varoius woods produced ln this state, finished with Minnesota lumber, Stone and iron rubble, in short, to be -a complete exhibit in itself of the' state's building materials. The plan contemplates two large rooms, one for ;men and the other for women, a reception hall, a music stand, and broad piazzas, surrounding the whole building. There will be ample room also for the exhibit of agricultural products of all kinds. It was estimated that the building could be erected on the grounds for $5,000. The plans were bequeathed to the executive committtee, which will be appointed to take charge of all the details. The question of a permanent chairman was taken up. John L. Gibbs suggested that the delegations from Ramsey and Hennepin counties get together and select one of their number or some other resident The minimum price per acre was $1.25. Only soldiers were eligible under the minimum figure. The original act of 1857 provides that the lands within the grant limits of the different railroads which belong tb the United States "when sold" shall not be sold for less than the double minimum price of public lands, and that they shall not become subject to private entry until the same shall have been first offered at public sale at the increased price. March 12, 1860, congress granted exclusively to the state of Minnesota all swamp lands which had not been sold or disposed of by the government. The local land offices have systematically rejected all claims of the state to these lands, as fast as they were brought, when their purchase by settlers was contemplated. All such cases of rejection have been appealed to the general land offlce at Washington, and lt also rejected the claim of the state, with one exception. The one exception was inadvertently overlooked, Auditor Dunn thinks. State Auditor Dunn, ln his appeal of these cases, takes up the question of whether there was a reservation made by the United States of these double minimum lands at the time of the passage of the swamp land grant to the state. Mr. Dunn contends that there was no such reservation, the provisions of the original grant being annulled by the passage of the grant to "all the swamp lands" in the state ln 1860. The appeal entered by Auditor Dunn Is quite comprehensive, giving a general review of the several grants in question. Mr. Dunn closes his argument in behalf of the state as follows: The sitate of Minnesota is aware that the rulings of the department have not generally been, with a few notable exceptions (for Instance the Oregon case, found ln XVIII. L. D. 343), favorable to the contention that lt ls entitled to the swamp landis within the grant liml-ls of railroads. But tbe state of Minnesota would submit that lt ls enti.led to a fair and liberal construction of the acts governng and relatng to its claims, and that not only should this commonwealth rise superior to all sordid motives ln the adjustment of Its claims, but that it should be given tbat credit for lofty motives to which Its dignity and statehood Justly entitles lt, by the government of the United States. The state ls not actuated by a to ravish these lands from the United States or possess itself of anything which has not been freely granted it by congress in accordance with the wise and general policy of the national government In this case at bar, and the question at Issue, the state of Minnesota asks that the question be adjudicated upon its merits without favor or prejudice, and with due regard to the policy of the government in such matters. The state does not come now and never has come as a private claimant hungry for land. It comes as one of the great states of the Union asking for its Just shares of the bounties and privileges accorded each and all the states for the sake and benefit of all the people living within its borders. It has in the past submitted to many rulings and decisions of the land department which have appeared arbitrary and unjust, rather than harrass the officers of the government and delay the adjustment of its grant or obstruct the work of the department. Now the state asks that this question be fully considered ln all Its bearings, and with the decision lt will rest satisfied. " The remainder of the appeal prays for the reversing of the decision of the general land department in the matter. The decision of the interior department Is being waited with interest. of one of the counties qualified for the position. George R. Finch replied that the chairman might better come from the country. The selection of a chairman and executive committee was left to a eommitttee of seven, consisting of Messrs. C. P. Noyes, of St. Paul; Greatsinger, of Duluth; Gibbs, of Geneva; Stebbins, of Rochester; Valentine, of Breckinridge; Anderson and Bernard, of Minneapolis. C. P. Noyes seemed to be choice of the committee, and of the convention as well, but he said he had not the time to devote to it. The ger.eral opinion among the members seemed to favor an organization similar to that of the world's fair board, with a secretary who can correspond and visit the people of the various counties and raise the funds, as well as look after the details of securing the exhibits. The afternoon was spent ln the discussion of details. It was decided that $25,000 should be the amount expended ln making the exhibit. Whether or not the building ls erected will depend largely upon the lumbermen, miners and quarrymen. If they will donate the materials as their share of the expense, It will probably be erected. If the cash has to be taken from the exhibit fund it probably will not. Those present this morning were: W. D. Kirk, George R. Finch, Conde Hamlin, R. A. Kirk, and C. P. Noyes, St. Paul; E. J. Phelps, W. W. Heffelflnger, L. C. Pryor, J. Newton Nind and F. L. Danforth, Minneapolis; J. L. Geatsinger, Duluth; A. T. Stebbins, Rochester; H. Wilson, Faribault; J. H. Rich, Red Wing; John L. Gibbs, Geneva; E G. Valentine, Breckenridge; George Pervis, Crookston; John I. Bernard, Pipestone. The permanent officers were agreed upon late this afternoon. Here they are: President— John L. Gibbs, of Freeborn county. Vice President— R. A. Kirk, of St. Paul. Secretary— E. C. Danforth, of Minneapolis. Treasurer— W. D. Kirk, of St. Paul. Executive Committee — C. H. Graves, of Duluth; A. T. Stebbins, of Rochester; E. J. Phelps, of Minneapolis. The four officials are also members of the committee. GRIFFIN INDICTED TWICE Fop Selling Without License and Violating, the Sunday Liquor Law. W. H. Griffin was indicted by the grand jury yesterday— and indicted twice at that. One Indictment charges the "mayor" with selling intoxicating liquors without a license. The other accuses him of selling these liquors on the Sabbath day, contrary to law. Griffin was not arrested yesterday, inasmuch as court had adjourned until 10 a. m. today. At that time "the mayor" will be taken to court and arraigned before Judge Willis, who will fix ball In each case. There ls another case pending against Griffin. It was presented to the grand jury yesterday by Mrs. S. V. Root, who charges Griffin with keeping a disorderly place at 33 East Seventh street. It is possible that another indictment will result from the testimony that Mrs. Root and her coadjutors will present. The grand jury returned four other indictments yesterday. Two of them are against John Leader, who Is charged with stealing diamonds from the residence of E. H. Judson, and with stealing other goods from the house of A. W. Lownsbury. John Moberg Is indicted on the charge of robbing the jewelry store of A. H. Simon of a jeweled locket, and Charles Smith Is Indicted on the charge of stealing jewelry from the establishment of G. Somers & Co. No bill was returned against A. W. Kingsbury, who was accused of being Implicated in the theft from Sommers & Co. Deserted In Her Youth. Hattie May Pillar applied to the district court yesterday for a divorce from Beck H. Pillar. The couple were married In St. Paul seven years ago this month, when the plaintiff was seventeen years of age and the defendant a youth of twenty. Thirteen months later, so Mrs. Pillar says, her young husband abandoned her and went to Montana, leaving her with only 415. Subsequently he sent her $10, but thereafter he never contributed to her support. Mrs. Pillar asks for an absolute divorce and. the privilege of resuming her maiden name, which was Hattie May Webb. |__-HBilk Headquarter! of the North weit. Globe— li-l-us.

USE SAPOLIO REINDEER REACH HERE ANIMALS FOR YUKON ARRIVE AT MIDNIGHT Brought Vp In Two Trains and Are Taken to the Transfer After a Short Stop at the Depot Party of Lappa With Them Finding It Uncomfortably 'Warm. After all, the people of St. Paul were not permitted to see the Lapland reindeer Yukon relief expedition, for lt reached this city shortly before midnight last night, and started on the last half of the journey across the continent at an early hour this morning. The Great Northern officials hoped to have the Lapps and reindeer shown for a few hours at the Minnesota Transfer early this morning, but the officers in charge of the expedition found it necessary to start before daybreak, after resting four or five hours, ln order to reach the coast ln the prescribed time. The expedition came in over the Milwaukee road in two sections less than an hour apart, and consisting of nineteen cars each. The first was in charge of Lieut. J. J. Rafferty, a British Columbia miner, and A. W. Gumaer, a Nebraska stock rancher. Lieut. Devore, of the war department, was in charge of the second section, which pulled in just before midnight. Each section stopped a short time at the union depot, where some meat and other provisions were loaded on the train. The gentlemen in charge said that all along the line of the Milwaukee road curious throngs of spectators lined the tracks, and surrounded the trains whenever stops were made. It is expected that the coast will be reached in three days and a half, or a trifle more than passenger time. The expedition is in charge of Dr. Sheldon Jackson, superintendent ot education ln Alaska, who introduced the first domesticreindeer into that territory, and now under the auspices of the general government ls placing there the first colony of Lapp settlers. The train Is under the direction ot Lieut Devore, of the war department. The party is the first of the kind ever imported into 'the Vnited States. Ii consists of 113 Immigrants, f.37 reindeer, 418 reindeer sleds, 81l sets of reindeer harness and between 3.000 and 4,000 bags of moss for feeding the reindeer en route. The immigrants const t cf forty-'.hree Lapps, ten Finn and flfteen Norwegian reindeer herders and dri\ers and their families, making a party of sixty-eight men, nineteen women and twenty-six children. Among them are six bridal couples, who were married a few days before the sailing of the steamer from the Arctic sea. One of these couples had reached the mature ages of 40 and 39 years. The youngest couple are 26 and 23, and the youngest bride is 22. Among them is a man of 29 married to a woman of 50. This herd of deer is the largest ever brought across the Atlantic. They are In charge of William Kjellman, a native of I_ap'.and. but who for some years has been in the employ of the government as an expert ln tho care and importation of reindeer.
