Civic Celebration at Minneapolis. The Minneapolis, Minn., City Council will soon be asked to provide for the roping off of streets to restrict crowds to the sidewalks on the days of the parades during the Minneapolis, 1911 civic celebration, July 2 to 8. The ropes will be held in place by removable stanchions, and the use of lamp posts in the downtown section from Bridge square on Nicollet avenue to Twelfth street and on Hennepin avenue to Tenth street. Emil Ferrant, chairman of the industrial parade committee, plans as an evening feature a review of the fire department to include a run at full speed which, by the roping off the streets, can be made comparatively safe.
