Word received from Bismarck states
that grippe is very prevalent among the

coal mine and production has been tem

for treatment. The mines and the road
are doing a good business.
The test of the coal which was to have

of the Decision—l.<><•«! Opin- '
ion* in Brief. .'
There is no mincing of words in the
supreme court's decision ,in the Minne
apolis •wineroom" ordinance.. The lan
guage of ; Chief Justice Start is concise
and In many places strong, especially" as
to the evils, of winerooms. •• 'v.
The appellant contended in. the 'first
place that the city council was not au
thorized by the legislature to pass such
an ordinance. But the court says that if
the ordinance iis not unreasonable ' there
is no serious question as to the coun
cil's power in the matter, and it is held
in this , case that the ■ council was au
thorized to enact the ordinance. • Says
It is a fact of which we may take judicial
notice that opportunities for men and women,
old and young, to lounge and carouse in
secrecy, free from the observation of the po
lice and of all other persons are demoraliz
ing in :; the extreme and directly, tend %to
drunkenness, licentiousness and ■ the corrupt
ing of unwary youth. The existence of any
drinking booth, stall or other like Enclosure
with screens, curtains or partitions within
the room nanfed in a license for the sale of
intoxicating liquors affords just | such oppor
tunities. • • • We therefore hold that the
ordinance forbids the construction \ or the
keeping of any booth, stall or other inclosure
in or connected with any room or place,
wherein intoxicating liquors is ' sold, which
is ;or "can by any ingenuity, " sham or pre
tense be used as a lounging or drinking place
or for any immoral purpose. So construed or
limited the ordinance is not unreasonable but
The appellant also made the point that
there was no evidence that he sold any
liquor at the time or place alleged. The
■court says that the gist of the offense
was not In selling liquor, but in permit
ting the existence of "stalls." While
some of the rooms were innc and
necessary inclosures, yet the evidence is
plenary that he kept other inclosurea
adapted for secret lounging, drinking or
Pith of the Supreme Court's Decis-
ion. on the Law Involved.
The syllabus of the supreme court de
cision on the Minneapolis wineroom ordi
nance, which was upheld, as announced in
The Journal yesterday, is as follows:
State of Minnesota, respondent, vs.
Jacob Barge, appellant.—Syllabus:
An ordinance of the city of Minneapo
lis relating to stalls, booths or other in
closures in saloons, construed and held:
1. The city council had legislative au
thority in its discretion t« enact the ordi
2. Courts have no power to declare an
ordinance void because it is unreasonable,
unless its unreasonableness is so clear as to
indicate a mere arbitrary exercise of the
power vested in the council. *
3. An ordinance, like a statute, may
be subject to implied exceptions founded
in the rules of public policy and the max
ims of natural justice so as to avoid ab
surd and unjust consequences.
4. The ordinance forbids the keeping
of any inclosures in or connected with
any room wherein intpxlcating liquors
may be sold by a licensed dealer, which'
is or can, by any ingenuity. or pretense,
he used as a lounging or drinking place or
for any immoral purpose. That so con
strued and limited, the ordinance is not
unreasonable, but valid.
5. The evidence sustains the judgment
convicting the defendant of a violation
of the ordinance.

appropriation comes up for consideration.
The members of the board consider that
it is entitled to a liberal appropriation, as
the state has spent no money on fair
ground improvements for over twelve
years. The board wants an adequate

Reckless Extravagance Practiced
in County Printing.
A COMPARISON WITH RAMSEY
With -34 Per (cut More Popnlatlon
We Spend 125 Per Cent More >
Money on This Item.'
The "blank book and printing" account
of Hennepin county was a very large item
in the county expenditures for 1900. In
fact larger than during any previous year
in the history of the county. Over $32,000
was expended in that way and only a very
small portion of that sum, about $3,000,
was paid for blank books and binding
alone. There certainly does not appear to
be any good reason why two accounts so
apparently out of should be
lumped together in the county bookkeeper
As It does not seem to be any more than
fair for those who furnish the money for
the county finances to know where it has
gone, the different expenditures for that
purpose during "the; year that has just
closed are tabulated below. It cannot be
found in this comprehensive form on the
county books I and it may be news even to
the old commissioners, whose terms closed
last week. It may be well to direct atten
tion to the fact that the , county has paid
in that way at the rate of nearly $106 per
day for every day the courthouse has been
open during the year.
■ The large items were for printing, the
financial statement, ; $3,974.88; \ deliquent
tax list, r $6,450.60; election tally books,
$1,807.40; election ballots, $3,857.10. : Some
of the books for the primary election that
had only a j short period of . usefulness and
probably never will be consulted in the
, future, were. bound in ■ lull leather with
gold lettering and: ornamentation. The
whole expenditure of the county in this
direction appears to have been extrava
gant in an unprecedented degree. As this
is the time of the year when the new bud
get for county expenditures will be made
up, it will be interesting to note what the
new board will do in giving the people a
business 'administration, as was promised

The last published- - monthly "financial
statement" of Hennepin county ending
Jan. 7, 1901, places the total amount ex
pended during the year for "Printing and
i Blank Books," at $30,209.77. That, how
ever, did not include . many bills already
contracted for that purpose and presented
for payment, . amounting to $2,129.73, the
work for which was done in October. No
vember and December. The old board of
county commissioners no doubt considered
it wise to withhold their -, payment for
twenty-four hours, until the new board
were in office, as the appropriation for 1900 i
made last January for "printing and blank
books," was already overdrawn some
$4,139.54. These delayed items, ', which
were passed at a ; meeting ' twenty-four
hours later, swelled the "overdraft" in
that one account to $6,269.27. That is to
say, the county , actually expended that
much more for printing- and blank books
during the year 1900 than they estimated
would be necessary ; would be required at
the beginning of the "year. ; '
To show more graphically the enormous
expenditure, for this particular item in
Hennepin county last year, we \ have com
pared it with ■ the cost in Ramsey • county i
for the same-purpose, taken'from the offi
cial records. ; The period selected covers
the whole term of the old board of county
commissioners and one year previous. \ It
was only since the last board assumed

GOOD NATURED CARL
Tries to Pry Up a Horse With, a
There is a flat near the corner of First
avenue S and Twelfth street that boasts of
a janitor most fertile in well-meaning
kindness but absolutely barren In resource.
Yesterday he had an opportunity to dis
play his manner of treating an emer
gency. A heavy wagon load of wood drawn
by two scrawny horses was crossing First
avenue when one of the animals slipped
and fell squarely on the car track. In a
moment there were the usual number of
people drawn to the spot offe"ring the usual
timely suggestions. Carl at the time was
sweeping the fropt. walk of his flat. With
his ready and alert manner he at once
approached the excited group. Before a
voice could be raised in protest he had
inserted his broom under, the prostrate
animal and was trying to do a little emer
gency lift in his most expeditious manner.
As fast as an experienced hand would
give Carl's broom a throw into the street,
just so readily and persistently would Carl
return and repeat his performance. Mean
while the cars on the line were being
blocked up on the avenue for some dis
tance. Finally, the driver of the wagon,
aided by the forensic argument of a street
car conductor, convinced Carl that his
impromptu crow bar remedy was a bit out
of place. With him and his straw-colored
broom out of the way, the mix-up was soon
cleared, the horse extricated from his
conspicuous position and traffic resumed.

STIRS UP PARTISANS
Sceitea Xot on the Bill* at the
Both British and Boer sympathizers ar»
looking forward with much interest to ths
lecture Friday night by Winston Spencer
Churchill, M. P., at the Lyceum theater, un
der the auspices of the Teachers* Club. His
audiences have been quite equally divided in
sentiment and the fact that the lecturer was
able to satisfy both widely separated par
ties speaks well for his impartiality. His
lectures have occasioned several incidents not
down on the program. On Saturday after
noon in Chicago an elderly man rose in the
gallery at the close of the lecture and at
tracted everybody's attention by shouting:
"I am an Englishman and I want Mr.
Churchill to tell you Americans of the im
pudence of the ultlmatus which Mr. Kruger
sent to the English government before the
The large audience awaited in silence for
Mr. Churchill's reply. He saidi "I do not
follow the gentleman, but I am sure that this
is neither the place nor the time for an acri
monious or controversial discussion of a
thing which has passed into history." Hi«
words were received with great enthusiasm
and for fully a minute he was loudly cheered.
The illustrations of the scenes in South
Africa that accompany Mr. Churchill's thrill
ing narrative often call forth noisy expres
sions of partizanship, the cheers indicating
the preferences of the audience as first Brit
ish and then Boar heroes are thrown on the
The present occasion will be the only one
ever given here of hearing Mr. Churchill as
a lecturer, as he has announced that this will
be his only venture in that line. He has also
finished his record as a war correspondent.
With his entrance into parliament . next
month he embarks upon & political career
which it has always been hie ambition and
purpose to follow. fi-'?fl'■•!"•!>■ -■
Dr. mills Posscsiies It in a. Remark
able Degree. ,
As "Colonel Thomas Wentworth Higginson
explained in his. lecture last Friday night,
the printed page will never supersede the
spoken message. As long as there are men
so long will there be orators—for so j long
will there be a demand for thoughts to be
spoken in the presence of those to whom
they . are addressed. , _. ;.* ; ;; - •
The element. of the writer's personal mag
netism .which makes a personal meeting with
him desirable (is remarkably demonstrated
in the ; lectures of Dr. Newell Dwight Hillis,
pastor of Plymouth church, Brooklyn. Well
as his lectures, sermons and other writ
ings are | read, there .is an element of the
greatest importance which in the printed
form .they do not share with the oral ■ form.
It is the difference between a mere copy of I
a work of art | and the | original, j Dr. Hillis
is truly a wonderful speaker, having.force
and fire and inspiring nervous energy. .
"The Tragedy of the Ten Talent Men from
Socrates to Lincoln," is the promising. sub- i
ject upon which he is to lecture In the Insti
tute of Art* and • Letters course at the Ly
oeum theater Friday evening, Jan. 25. Dr.
Hillis was one of the greatest successes of
the Institute's course last year.
