THAT IS THE CONDITION OF THE
HOARD OF EDVVATION.
A Meeting Last NightThe Bill Passed
by the Legislature DenouncedSenator
Gilfillan Roundly CensuredNear ly All
the Board Threaten to ResignPay Roll
The board of education held its regular
monthly meeting last night, President Muiphy
in the chair Besides a very full attendance of
members, there was a respectable sized audi
ence in the lobby. The meeting was called to
order about 8 o'clock, and on motion of Inspec
tor Scheffer the regular order of business was
suspended to hear from several gentlemen in
waiting in the lobby.
Mr Lvndeke was authorized to remove a par
tition in the High school and put up iron pil
lars The bill $99, presented by Wilson &,

in the West St. Paul school, waB discussed and
Superintendent Wright had no regular report
to submit, as the school month did not end un
til to-day. He, however, suggested as it was
the custom elsewhere, that the board of educa
tion appoint from the citizens at large
a committee visitors to vis't
the schools at examination, and make written
report of the result of their investigation to
the board. thought the public too little
acquainted with the public schools, and this
plan would be advantageous to all concerned.
The superintendent also suggested that a
week's vacation be given the pupils and teach
ers at the end of each term
On motion of Inspector Kerr the matter of
selecting visitors was referred to the committee
on schools to make a selection of proper per
sons The suggestion for a vacation was

Inspector Scheffer, from the committee on
It ^lslation reported that a bill had been draft
11 by the board committee Then they had
i died upon the Kamsey county legislative dele
gation, had been very courteously received by
them, had theu passed the bill ovei to their
keeping bince then nothing had been learned
about what had been done, or left undone.
Inspector Kerr further explained that the
bill embodied the expressed views of the board.
It had been presented to the Ramsey county
delegation, and it was referred to a sub-com
mittee composed of Senator Gilfillan and Kep
resentative James Smith, Jr The understand
ing was that any amendments or changes the
delegates might have to make they would, be
fore incorporating them in the bill, consult
with the board. This understanding was dis
tinct, and the promise made, and taken in good
faith by the board. Inspector Ken then re
marked that a bill had passed
the legislatuie, both houses which was
wholly different from what the board
recommended The bill passed wao the Koche
bill, or the one drawn up by Bill Murray and
Senator Gilfillan without the change of a word
except embodymgsome minor suggestions made
by the board reference to the charter. The
bill had been dishonorably passed by supter
uge. Knowing James Smith, Jr, he could
not and did not attribute any dishonorable mo
tive or conduct to him Mr Kerr had heard
the bill had passed the Senate, he went there
and saw to Senator Gilfillan about it.
replied it had gone to the House There he
found it had passed under a suspension of the
rules, and had been engrossed and gone to the
Governor. Inspector Kerr then characterized
the bill as the greatest and most outrageous
stroke ever aimed at public education. I
made the board a small caudle appendage to
the pot house politicians, who formed the
corrupt ung that wamicd their feet around
the coal stoves at the city hall
claimed to feel badly on this subject, be
cause it was a deadly blow to the pubho schools
The practical workings of the bill would place
the board in the power and control of local
politicians, contrary to the aim and pui poses
which should actuate any board of education
The effect of the bill would be to drive every
high-minded and honorable gentleman from
the board. proclaimed the bill an insult
and indignity to the honor of the board.
A NIGGER I N THE WOOD PILE
Inspector Benz had a few words of explana
ation to make Mr. Benz had seen Senator Gil
fillan and he had informed him the bill was
all rightpassed just as the board wanted it
Afterwards he made inquiry and learned of
the insertion of the clause making Comptroller
Roche the board's auditor. Inquiry about
it from Messrs Wiley, Oppenheim and
Reaney showed they knew nothing about it.
Afterwards Senatoi Gilnllan came along, and
he in an off-hand way had said to the others
that of course they knew all about it, for it
was the unanimous declaration or decision of
the delegation to insert the provision. Mr.
Benz believed there had been some great trick
ery about the whole affair.
Inspector Donnelly didn't see the appalling
horror the bill, that the other membeis were
frightened. I gave Mr. Roche the duties to
the board, which he dischaiged most satisfac
torily to the council. As to Mr. Murray, he was a
fair-minded gentleman, and as highly favored
the public schools.

President Murphy knew that the suspension

been moved by a St Paul man wanted

ought to be inquired into

board wanted to resign, would John Roche al

A HO ART VILLAIN.
A Young Wife Seeking Relief by a Prose
cution for Bigamy.
Sorely a case, which needs attention, if it
bo true. From the way, the woman, there's
a woman in it, tells her story there's no
leason to doubt her tale. Her name is
Caihna Masterson, or Wheeler. She's 18
years old, though a married woman of five
years' standing and misery. Hei narrative is
that she was forced into matrimonial re
sponsibilities at the early age of 13, by one
George J. Wheeler, who carried about him
sixty odd winters. In 1873, she and hti
parents came from Norway to Stearns
county, in this State. She obtained service
as a domestic in Wheeler's family, consisting
of himself and wife. Shortly thereafter her
father, Andrew Masterson, went to Anoka
county, 01 at least left Stearns county. Car
hna, apparently having a snug home, was
left with the Wheelers. In 1874 Mrs.York
Wheeler left her husband and went to Iowa.
Almost immediately after his wife's departure
Wheeler began to pay his seivant girl sus
picious attention. Ih child in her com
plete ignorance did not undeistand the pur
port of Wheeler's intentions, so she neither
repulsed or favored him. But at the su
preme moment her innocence was strong
enough to effectually resist him. Despairing
of possessing her* in such a way, Wheelei
adopted different tactics. He insisted that
the girl, child only in her 13th year, should
marry him. She didn't comprehend.
Wheeler was importunate, and finally forced
her before a josuce of the peace, where
the farce of a marriage between a child and
an old man was duly performed. The girl
lived with him three months, and then acci
dentally learning of her father's where
abouts, in Anoka county, she fled to him.
Wheeler hunted far and near for his child
wife, leman or what not, but couldn't find
her. Tears passed away, silvering the old
man's already bleached hair, and bringing
the young girl up to a robust and
comely womanhood. Recently, only
two or three months ago, the old lecherous
two times married man, found out the abode
of Carhna Wheeler. He visited her and be
gan to allure, beg, persuade and command
her to return to him. The recollection of
unholy conduct to her in hei innocence,
censed hei, and she would not hear to his
proposition. He became outrageously per
sistent, and to escape him, she again took to
flight. She came to St. Paul, ob
tained work and has been doing well
and respectably. By some unhappy
accident, Wheeler learned once more her
hiding place. He has been after her again
and again. Persuasion has given place to
thieats. Now the young woman is threat
ened with death unless she returns to his
palsied arms. She has become thoroughly
alarmed. Utterly desperate in her efforts to
evade and avoid him, she has been advised,
and has consented to prosecute the old rep
robate for bigamy. Information has been
filed with the county attorney of Stearns
county, and thus she may become rid of the
old rascal. Auerbach, Finch, Culbertson & Co.

Judged solely by the number of bills sent
to the Governor for his signature, the present
legislature is considerably further advanced
with its work than was the legislature of last
winter at the same time. A 3 ear ago to night
the Governor had examined and signed 76
House and 28 Senate files, a total of 104, while
up to last night 105 House and 76 Senate hies
had been signed, a total of 181, or 77 more bills
than last year, with one day less time, which
would probably increase the excess to fully 100
as 30 odd bills were in the hands of the en
grossing clerks last night But as the bills in
troduced are nearly double those of last year,
the number sent to the Governor hardly tells
the story of the progress being made.

gave the poor brute shelter and food. Full
corroboration was given to this, by a full dele

nesses had helped to care for the horse, had
given him feed, and shelter one night This
witness remarked in a casual way, that Dr

of the charge of horse stealing.
