REPORT OF LIBERAL ARTS EXHIBIT ON MAIN FLOOR OF

GRAND STAND.

E. J. Stiiwell, Superintendent; Geo. B. Keene, Asst. Supt.)

I have the honor to submit herewith my report covering the main floor
of the Grand Stand, which was under my supervision during the fair of 1910.

The Fair Board decided to use the old main building for other purposes
and in consequence all exhibits of the liberal arts were put into this building.
• Our exhibits did not secure to us the same returns as last year, owing to the
fact that we did not have the space to rent. We were obliged to refuse floor



Digitized by LjOOQLC



MINNESOTA STATE AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. 89

space to many desirable exhibitors and in conseauence some of these con-
cerns were unable to exhibit at the fair and others found space in other
parts of the grounds.

Early in the season a movement was started to have the two cities com-
bine and make some improvements in this room, but on conferring wifth our
architects and having plans made we found the expense was such that the
cities would not consider it. Consequently wjq rented the space, with few
exceptions, with the understanding that the exhibitors would, put ia their
own improvements.

The exhibits were all first class and attracted a great deal of attention
and the exhibitors were well pleased with'the attendance.

We had the floor painted and in consequence were comparatively free
from dust. We were particular to keep the floor clean and all refuse picked
up at all times.

In conclusion, would state that I do not think that this space is going to
be large enough for all who want space. My idea would be to have the two
cities combine and erect their own building, built to suit their wants. It
would cost them but little more than it would to fix up the room in the grand-
stand and by doing^so they would have a permanent home and location. A
building of this kind would no doubt draw a large attendance. This is the
plan of some of ihe Eastern fairs.

The space sold amounted in the aggregate to $3,685. The names of the
exhibitors are as follows:

REPORT OF SANITATION DEPARTMENT.

Morris, Minn., Nov. 29, 1910.

Mr. C. N. Cosgrove, Secretary Minnesota State Agricultural Society, Hamline,

Minn.

Dear Sir: I hand you herewith the report of the Sanitation Department
at the State Fair of 1910.

The payroll of the department for the week was as follows:

Teams $595.05

Labor 1.113.74

Paper pickers 379.30

Toilet crew 544.10

Ice 402.88

Total $3,035.07

This total is $469.51 less than the total pay roll of the 1909 fair and would
have been much less had it not been necessary to increase the size of the
crew in the toilets and in picking papers. Owing to the fact that we kept the
machinery hill clear of papers this year, as well as the paddock and center
field, it was necessary to have quite a number of additional boys. In the
toilets, we had to double our crew in a good many ins-tances owing to the
inadequate supply of water during the day, necessitating the flushing of the
bowls by pails of water.

The rental for garbage cans, and return for one can lost, is the sum of
$44.50.

92 ANNUAL REPORT OP

$841.65 was received from sales of ice coupon books, of which sum $120.20
was rebated in redeeming unused ice coupons, leaving a balance of $721.45 In
the hands of the treasurer.

Although the fair grounds were in better shape this year, for the holding
of the fair, than any fair heretofore, there is still room for improvement. I
send herewith a list of small improvements which are absolutely necessary
before the 1911 fair.

Respectfully submitted,

C. B. RANDALL,
Supt. Sanitation Dept.



REPORT OF TRANSPORTATION DEPARTMENT.

Redwood Falls, Minn., Oct. 31, 1910.

The Qoverning Board, Minnesota State Agricultural Society, Hamline, Minn • •

Gentlemen: As Superintendent of Transportation, I beg to submit here-
with my report for the year 1910, and recommendations as follows:

There were 297 cars received at the grounds and unloaded, and 282 cars
loaded and billed out.

The length of trackage at the grounds is wholly inadequate to handle the
number of cars received, and I recommend that it be at least doubled.

The platforms are decaying rapidly, and I consider them unsafe, and
advise that they be replaced by concrete platforms, and lengthened at least
50 per cent, and that lights be erected on the east side of the east platform.

The depot that is now there is, in my opinion^ of no practical use, and
I would recommend its removal to give more room for trackage and that a
room be built in one corner of the Forage Building, to be used for depot
purposes.

Respectfully submitted,

C. E. LAMBERTON,
Supt. Transportation.



REPORT OP THE SUPERINTENDENT OP SPEED FOR 1910.

St. Paul, Minn., Nov. 1, 1910.

To the Board of Managers, Minnesota State Agricultural Society,

Gentlemen: According to the figures at date of this writing, the horse
races given at the Fair of 1910 cost the Association about $8,000.00 in race
premiums, net. While the Association offered $27,000, to the harness horses
and $3,000 to the runners, the net amount we actually paid out was $6,000
to the harness horses and $2,000 to the runners; the difference, $22,000, is
made up of the amounts offered for purses which did not fill, and henoe
were not paid (some $5,000) and about $17,000 paid into the purses in entry
fees by the racehorse men themselves. In other words, while we paid out
gross $25,000 in purses, we got back in fees for entry $17,000, so that our
purses cost the Assoeiation $8,000 only. This is a remarkable showing — one
of the best from point of net results ever made by the Pair — equal to any
made in the former halcyon days of horse racing, and points to the fact
