  • The Duluth Street Railway Company yesterday applied to the Minnesota Railroad and Warehouse Commission for a temporary fare increase from 5 cents to 7 cents. The city of Duluth will have at least eight days to prepare any argument opposing the request.
  • Three men arrested May 4 in Duluth's Fifth Avenue Hotel as burglary suspects are now claiming police acted illegally. They argue police forced their way into the hotel room, conducted an unauthorized search, removed property from the room, and arrested the men without warrants.
  • After reconstruction for the last 15 months at a cost of $300,000, the Lyceum Theater will reopen to the public on Saturday, May 21. In addition to two organs, the Lyceum will feature a 16-piece orchestra conducted by Louis Christie.
  • Twenty-five of the highest-quality pocket, rail and snooker billiard tables have been installed in the Duluth Recreation Parlor, the city's newest billiard establishment. The new billiard room is located in the Oak Hall Building, 205 W. Superior St.
