In the case of O. N. Carson against the
sheriff of Pine county and others the su
preme court reverses the lower court. The
suit involved a deal between an insolvent
and his preferred creditor -by which the
former's stock of merchandise was con
verted into a homestead. The supreme
court- evidently does not approve such a
method of doing business.
| : The decision of the lower court in the
case of Cornish, Curtis & Greene company,

action involved a construction of contract

No Divorce Deluge.
Instead of attacking the divorce calendar
all together and getting rid of the nasty
mess as soon as possible, the default divorces
nave been turned over to the judge in charge
of the court calendar and they will be treated
as other cases. They are set six a day for
ten days and will be disposed of in their
order, and if a trial cannot be reached on
th 6 day set, the cases will go over until the
next day. This change in the manner of
handling the divorce business was proposed
by Judge McGee, who will hare charge of

IN BLUE AND GOLD
Tailors Working Overtime to Dress
CHIEF AMES' GORGEOUS RAIMENT
A Veritable Dream—Two of the "New
I'm" Frozen Out—They Prompt
Blue cloth, gold brakl and brass buttons
are by the tailor's art being transformed
into uniforms for what Colonel Fred Ames
expects 'to be one of the finest looking
corps of policemen in the country. The
numerous changes in the police force re
quires the purchase of absolutely new uni
forms by all of the new men. Many of the
old ones are following the movement. Lo
cal tailors are busy with the orders for
the chief, the captains, lieutenants and
sergeants. The dress coat of the new uni
form of the chief was completed this
morning. Were it a picture hat, the mil
liner would call it a dream.. It comes very
near being one as it is. The material is
of the best and the coat is in full dress
naval style, the first of the kind in this
state as a uniform for a police officer. It
has velvet cuffs with two rows of one-half
inch gold naval lace; two rows of gold
plate buttons down the front; standing
velvet collar, on each side of which are
three golden stars to denote the chief's
rank. The back is finished with side plaits
with gold plate buttons. The tailor con
siders this the finest thing that Minne
sota has ever seen in a police officer's un
The fatigue coat of the chief is a double
breasted sack, closing with eight gold
plate buttons, having a standing velvet
collar with the three gold bullion 6tars oa
each side and three buttons on the sleeve.
The fatigue coat of the officers is the same
with the exception of the number of stars
on the collar.
Uniform* Show Rank.:
Chief Ames stated this morning that he I
had made some changes in the uniforms
of the officers for the purpose of making
the uniform designate the rank. Hereto
fore the officer's rank could be known only
by the mark on his cap, and in summer,
when the officer was wearing a soft hat,
his rank was not easily distinguished.
Chief Ames has adopted the standing vel
vet collar for the coat instead of the roll
collar. The superintendent has three gold
stars on each side of the collar, the cap
tains have two and the lieutenants one.
| The sergeants will be known by a silver
: diamond shaped emblem worn in the same
The department is considering the ques
tion of an overcoat, but as yet has come to
no decision. Many of the men are pur-
I chasing coon coats, which they consider
a very necessary article for the cold days.
The officers and patrolmen have their
dress and fatigue uniforms to purchase, so
it can be seen that the "great fire of 1901"
means big business for the tailor who
makes a specialty of uniforms. The man
who,wears the s.uit pays the bill. He can
purchase it where he pleases. The depart
ment furnishes the specifications. The
brass buttons used in the manufacture of
these garments are not a small item. The
fur lined overcoat, which was Chief
Doyle's idea, carries eighteen brass but
tons, the mounted police carries sixteen
on his uniform, the patrolmen's dress coat ]
has twelve and the blouse of his fatigue
has five. WMB
The tallest man on the force measures
six feet six inches. "When they appear
in uniform," said Chief Ames, "you will
see some cracker jacks."
\~ot Ready for J. Frost.
Some of .the new men did not know of
their appointments until the eleventh
hour, and the installation of over one hun
dred men on the police force had its amus
ing side. Many of the men were wholly
unprepared for the exposure that is the
lot of the patrolman, especially on winter
nights. Some of the new men reported at
the stations wearing light spring over
coats. Others attempted to patrol beats
on the outskirts of the city wearing derby
hats and only poor protection for their
hands and feet.
Two of these men quit after four hours'
service. Richard P. Chalmers of the east
side station grew tired of the dog watch ■
and was the first to resign. - G. A. Powers
of ithe fifth precinct said he was "too '
strong" for patrol duty and nothing has
been heard from him since.
• A RECOMMENDATION
By a Minneapolis Girl Who Is Able
to Speak From Experience.
Miss Nellie M. Tomlinson of 3118 Min
nehaha avenue, Minneapolis, who is a
clerk in one of the large dry goods stores,
relates the following interesting experi
"When I was 8 years of age I had the
scarlet fever, and it left me with weak
kidneys and a complication of diseases. I
was so nervous that I could not sit quiet
ly in school and would have to go home
early every day. Finally I became so bad
that I left school and did not go for an
entire term. I had headache all the time
and was too irritable to talk with any
one. The least excitement seemed to make
my heart nutter and a fainting spell
would follow. At times I became so dizzy
that I would have to sit down until the
feeling passed away. My blood seemed
to have turned to water and I had no col
or whatever in my face. I was a mere
skeleton and had to lie down several times
during the day. We called our family
doctor and he left medicine, but no bet
ter health followed. I then had one of
the best physicians in the city, but he
i did not help me.
"My parents read about Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills for Pale People in one of our
city papers, and thought it would be wise
for me to give them a trial. I began to get
better when I had taken the first box,
and by the time I had used two and a half
boxes I was cured. Before I tooTc the
pills I could do no work of any kind, but
now I can perform with ease my duties
as clerk in a dry goods store. I think I
was never before so well as I am to-day,
and it is all due to Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills for Pale People.
"I have recommended the pills to many
of my friends and they are getting the
same good results. 1 will be glad to have
what I have eaid published if it will in
duce others who are suffering to try Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People and
be cured as I was." Signed,

Subscribed and sworn to before me this
26th day of December, 1900.

A HOT FIRE
A Blaze on Bridge Square That Was
EntlnsnUhed by Kilfyre.
A second interesting demonstration of
the wonderful power of Kilfyre in ex
tinguishing any kind of fires was made
yesterday on Bridge Square by Messrs.
Cross & Jackson, 304 Bank of Commerce.
A huge pile of inflammable material was
saturated with oil, the match applied,
and in a few moments the pile became a
mass of fire. Mr. E. W. Jackson then
applied Kilfire by throwing it on the
blaze through a small tube, and in an in
stant the fire was completely smothered.
Kilfyre is a dry powdered compound and
injures nothing but fire. When it comes
in contact with fire, it' generates a gas
that immediately extinguishes it. The
demonstration was an unqualified su

tubes cost $3 each.

WATERWORKS KMPLOYKS HAPPY
Department Committee Suffer* Slight
Changes—Runge May Stay—The
Owing to the fact that Aldermen Merrill,
McCune and Liane still constitute a ma
jority of the waterworks committee, at
taches of that department are not losing
much sleep over prospective changes.
There is little prospect of a renewal of the
agitation started two years ago for the
removal of Supervisor Jack McConnell
on the ground that his office was su
perfluous. Investigation convinced the
committee that the department could not
well dispense with his services. The
two new members of the committee, Ald
ermen N. J. Kelson ana Schoonmaker are
not disposed to make any trouble.
"Waterworks Billie" Winheiser, how
ever, is having his biennial nightmare.
In the stilly night the veteran foreman
of the waterworks department sees the
faces of W. J. Bowen of the second ward
and one Stevens of the seventh, both of
whom are working hard to succeed him.
Mr. Canterbury** List Coming.
Fire Chief Canterbury will submit his
list of appointees to the council Jan. 25.
He says that no promotions or dismissals
among assistant chiefs or minor officers
of the department are contemplated.
It has been believed in some quarters
that the active candidacy of First Assist
ant Chief A. H. Runge for the office of
chief would lead to his dismissal. It is
said now that if Runge will sign a writ
ten agreement to keep out of fire depart
ment politics so long as he is in an official
capacity, he will be retained. President
Jones of the council, and members of the
fire committee, believed that Runge should
be kept for the good of the department,
because of his undoubted ability as a fire
Mayor Amen' Hospitality.
Mayor Ames' hospitality lost no time in
asserting itself yesterday. Immediately
upon learning that the German warship
Veneta would soon drop anchor at the port
of New Orleans, the mayor addressed an
invitation to the commander 'to visit Min
neapolis. The mayor concluded his invi
tation by wishing "his majesty, his peo
ple and yourself a long and happy life."
Reminiscences by Col. C. T. Trow
bridg-e, His Military Associate.
When Colonel Thomas Wentworth Hig
ginson lectures in the Institute of Arts
and Letters course oa "American Oratory
and Orators" Friday night, many a civil
war soldier will listen to him with de
light, recalling the while the great days
of (the old war. But none of them will
take a greater delight in the coming of
the reformer, soldiei\ author and friend
of human freedom than Colonel C. T.
Trowbridge, who was lieutenant colonel of
■ the first negro regiment raised during the
civil war, the regiment of which the lec
turer was colonel. Said Colonel Trow
bridge the other day:
Ah, he is a grand, good man. He is 67
years old, but he thinks nothing of traveling
clear fioni Boston to Minneapolis to deliver a
lecture. He seems to have as much vitality
as when in the early fifties he was wounded
while battetring down the door of the jail in
Boston to free a fugitive slave; vor when he
traveled from Massachusetts to Kansas, car
rying a cannon concealed In a wagon for the
uss of the free soldiers; or when he went to
northern New York to plan the escape of
John Brown, the hero of Harper's Ferry.
What you want to know is my recollection
of his connection with that first regiment of
colored men that bore arms under the stars
and stripes—the advance guard of the splen
did soldiers who, 186,000 strong, saw service
in the war that made them free, of the regi
ments of horse and foot that have hunted the
Indians on the western plains and guarded
the settlements from Assiniboia to El Paso,
of the regiments that fought at El Cauey and
San Juan, and are even now beating up the
jungles of Luzon.
Well, you wet it was this way. General
Hunter, stationed at Port Beaufort, had taken
to enlisting the negroes. 1 commanded a
company In that regiment. A big hue and
cry was raised about negro soldiers and our
regiment was disbanded. But General Saxtou
went north and saw Presideut Lincoln and
got verbal permission from him to enlist the
negroes. My company was put into the first
regiment organized under the president's au
thority as the First South Carolina—the only
loyal regiment South Carolina furnished dur
ing the war. The command of this regiment
was offered to Colonel lligginson. That was
in November, 1562. You see he was then
fjlonel of the Fifty-first Massachusetts. He
had hesitated to go Id to the war because he
feared it would not result in the abolition of
slavery after all. While he was trying to
make up his mind as to the proffered com
mand a lady wrote this little skit, taking him
There was a young curate at Worcester
Who could have a command if he chooster:
But he said each recruit
Must be blacker than soot.
Or else he'd go preacu where he use ter.
Well, he took command of the regiment,
and I was his lieutenant colonel. After' he
was wounded on the South Kdisto river in
Jdiy, 1881, I succeeded to the command. He
was a splendid soldier, stalwart, handsome
aiid fearless. I often recall him as I saw him
at the head of his black soldiers at the battle
of St. Mary's— erect, firm, eager but cool.
Although these black soldiers of his and he
himself had been outlawed by the Confeder
ates and promised death by the rope if taken
prisoners, he penetrated further into the Con
federate lines at the height of Confederate
power than any other leader on his expedi
tious up the South Kdisto amd St. Mary's riv
ers. The man's valor and moral as well as
physical courage have been an inspiration to
me all my li-fe.
I admire the colonel as an author just as
much as I honor him as a soldier, and he is
as good at writing as at fighting. He is also
a brilliant lecturer. He has a fine, easy,
taking, polished style, and I know that many
who haven't the same love for the old soldier
that I have will find great pleasure in spend
ing an evening with him.

the Beaufort. Mr. McCanna was a member
of the North Dakota senate for several year 3.
His mission here is to complete the program
for the big farmers' institute which is to be
held at the Devils Lake Chautauqua next
season. The committee in charge hopes,'
among other things, to obtain an address
from President J. J. Hill of the Great North
"Our legislature has just begun the grind,"
said Mr. McCanna, "and coupled with the
news about the row among tlie boys on the
slope the Bismarck dispatches from now on
ought to be interesting. The slope combina
tion appears to be split straight through, the
center. Jewell and Little are on one side
of the fence, while Patterson, Allen and Mc-
Gillivray are on the other. This may in the
end affect the prospects of Senator Hans
brough for re-election, as the trouble occurs
right in the camp of his friends. Until this
event occurred it looked as if the senator
would stand a show of being re-elected with
out much more of a fight than he experi
enced four years ago. I do not expect to
see a primary election bill make much head
way. Two years ago it was headed off early
and easily and the same people who were
against the bill two years ago are against it
now. They are in the saddle in the senate.
We expect the next Chautauqua at Devils
Lake to be an even greater success than the
meeting of last year."
Merchant Wilson of Durand was in town
yesterday making purchases to complete his
spring stock. Durand has a gcod territory
tributary and Mr. Wilson states that her
merchants have good trade prospects for the.
W. G. Smith, merchant and real estate
man from Frand Forks, N. D., was at the
Nicollet last evening on his way south to
spend the winter. He was accompanied by
E. S. Lovelace, general dealer at Fort Ran
som, X. D., spent yesterday in Minneapolis
on his way to southern Minnesota. Mr. Love
lace was a member of the '97 legislature in
North Dakota. lie said that the people of
his section of the state were more interested
in -what this year was likely to give them
in the way of a crop than in politics.
The La Cross? Plow company is opening
a branch house in Minneapolis, under the
management of M. H. Davis, who has been
connected with the company for years. The
new house is occupying the quarters now be
ing vacated by the Advance Thresher com
pany on Third avenue N, and its travel
ing men are starting out on their year's work.
Hitherto their goods have been handled in
Minnesota and the Dakotas through jobbers.
A. S. Elford of Grand Forks is at the
Nicollet on his way east to attend the annual
convention of the general agents of the New
York Life. "For the life insurance business,"
said Mr. Elford, "the prospects were none
to good during the summer months, but the
last four months of the year gave us a big
brace and in fact the business of those
months in our state was even better than the
same months of last year. The change of
administration iv North Dakota brings with
it a new insurance commissioner. I know of
no legislation which the insurance interests
desire from our legislature."
L. Freeman of Fargo is at the Nicollet.
Mr, Freeman has been interested in the Im
plement business in the Dakotas for years.
He expects that trade will be quiet during the
early part of the season en account of the
stocks carried over by the retail dealers.
North Dakota under normal conditions can be
depended upon to furnish satisfactory results
in the implement business and all that the
state needs is a fair crop to make her record
good this year.
Mayor H. A. Libby of Park River is at
tbe Xicollet. The mayor stadted that there
■were some measures of importance to come
before the legislature of North Dakota at
this session in which the people of the state
were deeply interested, although as yet it was
hard to determine just what the law-making
boay was liable to do with them. The prim
ary election bill was one of them. "The peo
ple of our state are also deeply interested in
the progress of the senatorial fight in the
Minnesota legislature," said Mr. Libby. "We
have none of our own on this year and Min
nesota is looked to for entertainment in that
"We got a good chunk of immigration
last spring," said C. W. Wing of Carring
! ton, "and our people are beginning to figure
i on the ' possibilities in that direction for
I t)ie coming year. Politics, immigration and
I crop constitute the three main topics of in-
I terest to North Dakota people. The Soo line
is doing a great deal towards settling the
country in the western part of the state,"
Prank Beal3 is in from Jamestown, N. D.
He carries a sore arm due to vaccination.
He states that the people along the North
ern Pacific have had the smallpox scare no
worse than those in other sections of the
northwest, but they ,believe in being ready
I for it. "The Jim River valley is a fine piece
I of country," said Mr. Beals, "and her mer-
I chants are in good shape. Most all the towns
I in that section of the state are growing. An
i other ten years will see big progress in the
development of North Dakota."
ONE BOUNTY ALREADY PAID.
Although the state sugar beet bounty law
has been declared unconstitutional, State
Auditor Dunn says the state cannot hope to
collect hte $20,000 already paid to the Min
nesota, Bet Sugar company in bounties. The
courts will hardly hear a suit for its re

The Minnesota Auxiliary of the National
Fraternal congress was organized at the
West hotel yesterday. The object of the
organization is the promotion of the wel
fare of the various fraternal orders by
bringing their officers and representatives
into closer social relations. National pres- j
ident, C. E. Bonnel of Chicago, presided;
at the meeting, which was attended by
representatives of nearly all the important
orders doing business in Minnesota. An
executive committee was apointed, con
sisting of one member from each organi
zation. The congress indorsed the "uni
form fraternal bill," which proposes the
regulation of mutual benefit fraternities
and defines ■ their rights and privileges.
This has become a law in many states.
The following officers were elected by
the auxiliary yesterday: Mr. Hind of the
Ai, O. IT. W. as president; J. O. Pierce,
vice president; Henry Deutsch, secretary,
and Dr. C. A. McCollom, treasurer. Head
Director Smith of the Modern Woodmen
was chosen as a delegate to represent the
state auxiliary at the meeting of the na
tional congress in Detroit, Mich., next
