THE MINNEAPOLIS JOURNAL.
HE IS. DUMFOUNDED
Mayor Ames Accuses Governor Van
Sant of Inconsistency.
GOVERNOR SAW SOME BOXING
It Was at an Elks' Entertainment—
Mayor litanies Another Order
One of the worst mistakes in Governor
Van Sant's action suppressing the fistic
affair arranged for the exposition building
last night, in Mayor Ames' opinion, was
his act of prejudging th© character of the
event. That was an inexcusable break,
he holds, and he does not propose to put
himself in any similar attitude. In his
crusade he will act only with a full knowl
edge of the situation in each individual
case, he says. To make this point plain
he issued a supplemental order late yes
terday afternoon calculated to set himself
right with the public and at the same time
make the path of action clear to his chief
of police. The order reads as follows:
Seeing Is Believing.
"Sir: As supplementary to the orders
issued this morning anent glove contests,
sparring matches and athletic exhibitions,
I desire to say that, when your attention
is called to one of these contests, matches
or exhibitions, you are not to prejudge of
its nature whether it is in violation of law
or not, but wait until you are satisfied that
the laws of the state or the ordinances
of the city are being violated, then act.
"I doubt very much the wisdom of an
executive or administrative officer under
taking to prejudge the nature of such con
test or exhibition, and notwithstanding
such a practice has recently been indulged
in, I desire to forwarn you so that your
department will not commit a like indis
The mayor was subsequently inspired to
a new outburst of passionate disgust with
the governor's course by the discovery of
some clippings from St. Paul papers tell
ing how Governor Van Sant attended the
Elks' blowout in that city last week and
witnessed with keen enjoyment a mixed
program of entertainment which Included
as one of its leadins features a lively
sparring match. The governor is reported
to have alluded to the match jocularly in
his speech .later in the evening and to
have declared that it wasn't a marker to
the fight he had on his hands last No
More Hot Remarks for the Governor.
Shown the clippings containing the
above information, Mayor Ames expressed
himself as dumbfounded. "It doesn't seem
possible," said he, "that a man who went
bo far out of his way on Sunday last to
stop an exhibition of sparring in Minne
apolis should consent to sit through a
prize fight 'with or without weapons,' con
trary to the penal code of the state, at an
Elks blowout in St. Paul only last Thurs
Governor Van Sant, he thought, should
have surrendered himself to the attorney
general th^ next morning, confessed his
guilt and taken his punishment. The
mayor expressed himself as fearful of the
results of such an example on the young
men of the state.
Mayor Ames received a good many con
gratulations during yesterday afternoon
and evening and this morning on his atti
tude with regard to the future regulation
of athletic sports in Minneapolis. A. L.
Mace, former president of the Century
Road club, wrote from St. Paul a glowing
indorsement of the doctor's position, and
others sent in letters or came in person
to s£>eak their sentiments.
W. J. Dean thought the mayor would
hardly go to the limit.
JOSHING THE MAYOR
A Daring: "Soph" Notiflex the Mayor
of a Banket Ball Game.
The Minnesota Dally, the university
organ, prints the following communication
to the mayor from a "Soph":
Dear Sir—l beg to Inform you that there
will be two basket ball games at the univer
sity armory to-morrow afternoon, wherein
life and limb may be in jeopardy, and the
students would be pleased to have you send
over an officer or so to see that "the malm
ing of our young men" is stopped.
I also desire to call your attention to the
fact that a fierce contest between Wisconsin
and Minnesota will occur next. Saturday aft
ernoon at 2:15 in the armory. For this you
had better send over at least two officers
as the six or seven hundred students might
place the "life and limb" of only one In
great "jeopardy." Come over and "toma
hawk everybody and everything"—that you
can: and, by the way, we should like' the
hatchet for our trophy room.
I would further mention the fact that The
Journal states authoritatively that there
are to be some dreadful football games next
fall in which "injury may result," especially
on Oct. 26 and Nov. 2. At that time the city
will be invaded by "terrible men" and if
you are going to "tomahawk" them our ad
vice would be to reappoint the 106 policemen
who were recently "tomahawked."
"Lay on,« Macduff!"
Yours in the interest of reform,
THE SUPREME COURT
The supreme court yesterday handed
down two decisions, as follows: •
Jacob J. Eech and Peter J. Esch, respondents,
vs. William C. White, appellant.
Syllabus: First—An order of the district
court upon a legal question where it has
jurisdiction of the person and the subject
matter involved is conclusive, unless set aside
upon review by the appellate court; if such
order is not reviewed, but acquiesced in by
the parties, it is to be treated as the law of
that case, and final.
Second—Where the district court hold* that
an undertaking on appeal from the appoint
ment of a receiver is not sufficient, and re
quires another of different form to discharge
contempt proceedings against the appellant,
such new undertaking is a sufficient consid
eration for a promise to Indemnify the sure
ties to whom such promise is made. j
Third —Where upon foreclosure of a mort
gage a receiver has been appointed to take
charge of pie property, whether the mort
gagor or owner of the property la entitled to
the rents and profits, under the rule In Mar
shall et al. vs. Cady, 76 Minn., 241, cannot
be determined in a collateral action where all
the parties interested are not before the
court, and there has been no accounting or
settlement with such receiver, as in this
Fourth —No new facts are set forth in the
amended answer that requires any modifica
tion or change in the rule laid down on the
former appeal of this case, Esch vs. White,
76 Minn., 220.
Fifth—Held, upon tile allegation in the
amended answer that states that plaintiff
was not the real party in interest, that such
averment is a conclusion of law and insuffi
cient, as it sets worth no facts showing that
such plaintiff is not interested in the result
of the action.
Order affirmed. ■ —Lovely, J.
Abram Rauma, respondent, vs. John D. La
mont and John A. Healy, appellants.
Syllabus: First—ln a civil action for an
assault followed by false Imprisonment, evi
dence considered, and held that upon the is
sues properly submitted to the jury that it
sustains tbe verdict against one defendant for
assault, and for false Imprisonment against
Second—That the trial court properly sub
mitted to the jury the question whether the
plaintiff was entitled to punitive damages,
which under the evidence was involved as an
issue in the case.
Third—That the verdict against one of the
defendants for an assault and false imprison
ment, for $450, and against the other in aid
ing and abetting in the illegal arest and im
proper use of force in the false imprisonment,
for $350, were not so excessive as to Indicate
passion and prejudice by the Jury.

READY FOR NEW WHEAT
A !VEW KLKCTRIC ELEVATOR
First Meeting of the Incorporatori
Wax Held Yesterday—A
When the new wheat crop begins to
come in about Aug. 1, next, Minneapolis
will have additional facilities for handling
It in the shape of a new elevator with a
capacity of 1,f>00,000 bushele. The an
nouncement was made some days ago of
the organization of a new company, capi
talized at $250,000, to be known as the
Electric Steel Elevator company. The in
corporators met yesterday and elected the
following officers: President, L. S. Gil
lette; vice president, G. M. Gillette; sec
retary, C. E. Thayer; treasurer, James
Quirk. It was decided to begin work at
once and not wait until spring. With an
early atart and by pushing the work
through the summer the company expects
to be in line for business by July. The
new elevator will be of the steei tank
kind. From the power house the tanks
will probably run in one direction, and the
building will be planned so as to leave
space around it, with a view to increasing
the capacity later by the building of addi
tional tanks. The location will be off of
Eighteenth avenue SE, on the Great
Northern tracks, and about half way be
tween the Standard elevator and the new
Christian flour mill.
PLEASED WITH MR. WYMAN
HE IS NAMED AS A U. REGENT
Dr. Harrah'a Appointment to the
Doard of Pharmacy Vice
Very general satisfaction is expressed
in university circles over the appointment
of J. T. Wyman as a regent. S. M.
Owen, who retires from the board, has
been a valuable and hard-working mem
ber, but the three retiring regents were
democrats, and the governor has reap
pointed one. Judge Mahoney, replacing the
other two by republicans. Dr. Stickler of
New Ulna, and ex-Senator Wyman. Mr.
Wyman is a graduate of Carleton college,
but has lived on .the East Side for a num
ber of years, and has always taken great
interest in tihe university.
The appointment of Dr. J. w. Harrah on
the state pharmacy board was very satis
factory to the friends of Truman Griffin,
who resigned from the board. Mr. Griffin
has for several years been trying to oust
H. G. Webster from his position as secre
tary of the board, but the appointment of
Louis Trautman of Wabasha a few weeks
ago left the board three to two in favor of
Webster, as it has been for some time.
Griffin accepted a position with a Phila
delphia wholesale drughouse and resigned
from the board. Dr. Harrah, who suc
ceeds him, has been a Griffin man, and
the governor has recognized both factions
among the drug mixers.
CUT INTO THEIR TRADE
(HICAGO LIMBBHMEN ARE HERE
Their Object Is Lnder stood to Be to
Bolster tp Their Local
Chicago lumbermen are making a de
termined effort to keep their city from
becoming a back number as a lumber
market. For years the wholesale lumber
trade of the windy city has been going
to other points in the west, and the Chi
cago wholesale men are beginning to be
A delegation of Chicago wholesale lum
bermen arrived in Minneapolis yesterday
morning and heJd a secret conference at
the West Hotel. It was learned that the
meeting is for the purpose of mapping out
a line of action for a proposed confer
ence with the Mississippi Valley Lumber
men's association, which meets here to
day. A prominent lumberman said:
There was a time when Chicago was the
lumber market of the west. Many of the
mills of Michigan and Wisconsin, sold through
Chicago wholesalers entirely, or handled
their accounts through Chicago lumber bro
kers. Later the mills in those two states
dealt with the trade direct, and gave the Chi
cago middleman little consideration.
When the big mills of Minesota and the
Mississippi valley cut into the trade they, of
course, did business with the trade direct,
and in late years have been selling to the
big consumers in Chicago under the very
nose of Chicago wholesale men. These con
sumers are such men as the Deering and
McCormick machine people, and, in fact, all
of the big manufacturers. It is this latter
instance which, I think, forms the main
cause of- the visit of the Chicago men and
the Mississippi Valley Association will prob
ably be asked to make some concessions on

Employers Are Wondering How the
Manitoba Qea.l. Will Affect Them.
Special to The Journal.
Grand Forks, N. D., Feb. 19.—A great
deal of Interest is felt in this city in con
nection with the sale of the Manitoba
division of the Northern Pacific to the
provincial government. This arises from
the fact that the sale will necessitate a
complete readjustment of the Staples di
vision, which formerly extended to this*
city. Nothing can be learned definitely
as to what the arrangement will be. An
employe who is in close touch with the
officials, said yesterday that he did not
think' the change would operate against
this city and East Grand Forks; in fact,
there might be an advantage. It Is
thought the crews that have heretofore
run through to Winnipeg, will, after the
transfer, run to Manitoba and double
back the same night, and if this is the
plan, East Grand Forks will undoubtedly
remain the end of the division, and the
dispatcher and clerks will remain.
Another question of vital interest to
the men who have been running on the
Manitoba division is whether or not they
will retain their present order of promo
tion if they are transferred to the other
division. As soon as business picks up in
the spring, many of them are in line for
pormotion, and they are all wondering if
they, will lose the benefit of years of
steady work as a result of the sale.
The officials of the road are reticent,
and a definite announcement of plans is
anxiously awaited by employes.
IT IS MAKING MONEY ■
Favorable Showing of Twin City
Rapid Transit Company.
New York, Feb. 19.—During the entire
year 1900 the Twin City Rapid Transit
company has reported uniformly steady
increases in earnings, no month having
shown a loss. The statement for the year
showß total gross earnings of $2,522,793.
Passenger earnings for the year were
12,476,879, a gain of 13.62 per cent, while
miscellaneous earnings amounted to
$45,914, a loss of 45.22 per cent, resulting
in a gain in total gross of 12.55 per cent.
Operating expenses were $1,156,972. Main
tenance of equipment shows a reduction
of 3.34 per cent and total expenses in
creased 2.77 per cent. This- year expenses
took 45.95 per cent of earnings, against
45.86 last year. Net earnings increased
12.36 per cent. During the year interest
on funded debt was reduced 4.16 per cent,
and total charges, including the preferred
dividend, increased 1.63 per cent. The
surplus applicable to common dividends
is $705,591, an increase of 28.28 per cent.
This is equivalent to 4.90 per cent on the
common stock, on which was paid 3 per
cent this year, against 2^ per cent last
year. The surplus after all dividends and
charges, is $255,291, or 46,08 per cent more
than a similar surplus a year ago.
MIXED THEIR DATES
Railroads Are Over Zeaions With
Their Colonist Rates.
The settlers' rates to the west came
very near being good for every day in
the week, as well as for Tuesdays, during
an over-eager spell of the interested roads
recently. The Northern Pacific and the
Great Northern took the initiative, and in
stead of applying their $30 rate to Tues
days they placed tickets on sale Mondays,
Wednesdays and Thursdays as well as
Tuesdays. This action applied to the twin
cities. Upon learning of this, the Milwau
kee announced that it would sell tickets
on Wednesdays, the day its colonists' car
leaves for the southwestern territory. The
Minneapolis & St. Louis and the Great
Western immediately hopped on with other
dates than the one agreed upon, and things
were about to become chaotic, when the
Transcontinental Passenger association no
tified all lines that colonists tickets would
not be honored by connecting lines unless
their sale at initial points was agreed
BACK TO THE FOLD
St. Lonia and Great Western Return
to W. P. A.
The Chicago Great Western railway and
the Minneapolis & St. Louis railroad have
filed applications for admission into the
Western Passenger asosciation. Favor
able action by the association on these
applications will make the organization
complete, as all lines in western asso
ciation territory will then be included in
Grain Rates to Seaboard.
Washington, Feb. 19. —A subcommission of

to the Atlantic seaboard, referring especially
to the elevator conditions.

A Scheme by Which It Will Reach
Los Angeles, Cal., Feb. 19.—The San

will join hands with the Burlington road
at Salt Lake. The Burlington will begin
an extension to Salt Lake City for the
purpose of meeting the western road as
soon as epring weather permits grading,

N. P. Eai-ulngs Increase.
New York, Feb. 19.—The Northern Pacific
gross earnings show an increase for the first
week in February of $42,007. Since July 1,
1900, the gross increase has been $1,198,316,
or an average increase of about $41,320 per
week. Should these increases be continued
at this rate, it is probable that gross earn
ings gor the year will show an increase or
at least $1,980,000, and it Is probable that the
$2,000,000 figure may be exceeded.
Milwaukee to the Hill*.
Bowdle, S. D., Feb. 19.—Assistant Superin
tendent Cosgrove and other officials of the
Milwaukee road wem to Evarts, the Missouri
river town, Friday, in their special car. The
fact of their remaining over a day and night
is significant, together with several remarks
dropped by a head official. There is no doubt
now but that the road will be extended to the
Black Hills in the spring.
Charles H. DeVault, assistant city ticket
agent of the Great Western in St. Paul, has
resigned, to take effect the first of the month.
His successor has not yet been decided upon.

Surveyors of the Burlington, Cedar Rapids
& Northern, who have located permanent
quarters at Farmington, have just completed
a preliminary survey to ■ connect with the
South St. Paul belt line. They found an
easy grade and accessible route.
Managing officials of both the Northern
Pacific and the Great Northern deny all
knowledge of the report sent from the west
to the effect that the Northern Pacific had
disposed of its interest in the old Union Pa
cific right-of-way, between Tacoma and Port
land to the Greaf Northern.
