Complaining Witness Absent —
When the case against John Ewold, charged
with keeping a gambling place, was called
before Judge Dickinson yesterday, it was

Bishop Joyce Goes West— Bishop
Joyce, president of the Epworth League of
the Methodist Episcopal church left last
eight for San Francisco, where the Epworth

conference is composed of the leagues of
three Methodist bodies, the Methodist Epis
copal church, the Methodist Church South

Joyce expects to return to this city the last
of the month.
Give the Court the Laugh-There if
no longer any doubt regarding the attitude
of the city administration toward keepers of
houses of ill fame. An endeavor was made
to Induce the municipal court to cut the fines
in two, but without success, and, finally, the
city authorities announced that the madames
need appear in court only once every two
months. Instead of monthly, as heretofore.
Two months ago, the women failed to appear,
and the administration policy began to dawn
upon the public. At that time, the women,
or many of them, became fngntened lest the
sheriff take a hand in the game, and several
left the city. To-day was the regular recur
ring monthly fine day, but not one house
keeper appeared at court, though Judge Dick
inson was on hand at the accustomed hour
It is now up to the sheriff to play a part
of the game, and there is a possibility that
results will be very serious for the dive
keepers, inasmuch as under the state law
they are subject to a fine of $1,000.

PHILLIPS WAS THERE
; First to Give the Alarm of the Bank
' ' : Robbery.
Representative Jay W. Phillips, of this
city, was a resident of Northfield at the
time of the Younger raid and was one of
the most active participants in the excit
ing events of that fateful day.
"I was the first man in the bank after
the shooting of Heywood, the cashier of
the raided bank, and when I reached his
side he was still alive," said Mr. Phillips
recalls dthe circumstances.
The gang arrived in the town at about 8
o'clock in the morning and hitched their
horses near the depot while they took break
fast in a little restaurant near by. After that
they took to the west road and were not seen
again until 2 in the afternoon, when they
rode up and, while some surrounded the bank
and acted as guards, others went inside to
commit the robbery and incidentally shoot
the cashier. At this time I was in an upper
window Just across the street from the bank,
and when I saw what was going on I began
to shout murder and cry that the bank was
being robbed. Cole Younger -was on his horse
just across from me, and when he heard my
voice he raised his gun and put a bullet
through the sash of the window in which I
wa» iccated. From my window I saw A R.
Manning shoot and kill Bill Stiles. Stiles was
the son of a.Baptist preacher at Cannon Falls.
and was hired by the gang to pilot them out
of the country. Dr. Wheeler of Grand Forks
was the hero of the day. He planted himself
with a gun in the window of the hotel and
kept up a fusillade against the robbers, and ho
it was who shot and killed Chet Miller, and
it was a bullet from his gun which struck
Bob Younger In the arm. The pursuit com
menced Just as soon as the gang quit the
village. Jack Hayes and a .nan named Davis
took the two horses which had been' ridden
into the city by Bob Younger and Bill Stiles,
and I went to a livery and secured a pony,
after supplying myself with arms.
One of the most remarkable incidents of
that day was the manner in which old Colonel
Streator stood in the middle of the street in
front of the bank, unarmed himself and with
bullets whizzing on every side, throwing
rocks at the bandits. Streator was the only
Northneld man present at the capture of the
*ang near Madelia.
HEADING OFF A SNAP
Taxpayers' League Trying to Save
the City $20,000.
ACTED IN THE NICK OF TIME
In AnsertiiiK the City's Claim to Hulk
of Police Department Atmo
The Taxpayers' league has taken a hand
In the matter of the distribution of the
funds in the hand's of Receiver Wold, of
the Minneapolis Police Department Re
lief association, and no money will be paid
out to individual claimants until the court
has passed upon the question of the city's
claim and decided whether it is too late
to recognize it or not. A restraining or
der, preventing the distribution of the
fund in accordance with a previous order
of the court was granted by Judge Elliott
this morning. The entire question will be
brought up for settlement July 19.
The league was represented in the mat
ter by W. M. Babcock and George L. Nev
ius, who appeared in court at noon to-day
with the necessary papers in readiness for
the signature of the judge.
It. U. Cone'g Petition.
The petition is signed by R. D. Cone,
who saya that fully $20,000 of the $33,000
in the fund properly belongs to the city of
Minneapolis, having been granted by law
for a purpose which cannot foe accom
plished by the contemplated distribution.
The money donated by the city, he says,
was intended to increase the efficiency of
the police department and could not right
fully be used by the association except for
the aid of injured or disabled policemen.
To divide it among members of the asso
ciation wouM be to divert it from its
The petition further states that the city
has contributed not less than $30,000 all
told to the police relief fund, while the
policemen themselves have paid in only
about $8,396. Allowing the city's pro
portionate share of legitimate expenses,
it is calculated that approximately $20,000
of the unexpended balance should be re
turned to the city.
The city should have put in its claim,
through ihe proper officials, prior to June
20, the date fixed for the final presenta
tion of claims, but the proper authorities
having failed to perform their duties, the
league, acting for the taxpayers of the
Cause for Comment.
The failure of the city attorney and the
mayor to present the claim of the city
in this matter was the cause of com
ment from both the judges who have had
occasion to handle the case. It was so
plainly the duty of the city officials to
make the claim in question that the com
ment was made openly by Judge Pond
that he doubted whether any such decree
of distribution as the one which he had
signed would have been possible, in the
face of a protest by the city.
The bonds which form the assets of the
defunct association are to be sold to
morrow, and it was intended to carry
out the order of distribution not later
than Monday. The restrainer, however,
comes in time to prevent this.
What to Do With It.
It is suggested that the saving of $20,
--000 to the city would mean that much
of the street paving that it has been
thought necessary to put over another
year could be done, or that other work
of equal importance could be completed
at an earlier date than had been hoped.
THE LAWYERS TALK
They Discuss the Legal Phases of
the Ore Rate Case.
DECISIONS OF SUPREME COURT
They Are Cited in Support of the Po-
sltion Taken by the
The question of the jurisdiction of the
railroad and warehouse commission over
iron ore rates was argued before the
state railway commission at St. Paul yes
terday in very strong addresses by Prank
K. Kellogg of the Iron Range road and
by G. Wellwood Murray for the Mlssabe
company. The testimony was practically
all in yesterday. Mr. Murray commenced
the arguments and took up the questions
of law, citing innumerable cases from the
TJnite.d States reports 'bearing on similar
contingencies. Later in the day Mr. Kel
logg applied these cases to the ones di
rectly before the commission, to show
where the traffic of the iron ore roads
was wholly interstate business and solely
under the control of the federal govern
Mr. Murray asked, first, whether the
traffic under discussion was absolutely in
terstate; second, whether the traffic was
exclusively within the jurisdiction of con
gress. He referred to the cause leading
to that provision in the federal constitu
tion which says that the sole control of
traffic moving from one state to another
shall be vested in the national govern
ment. In the early history of the Ameri
can colonies there was made an effort by
some of the colonies to impose taxes and
revenues upon merchandise and materials
coming from adjoining colonies. It was
this situation, he said, which led the
framers of the constitution to place inter
state traffic thereafter upon a foundation
far above the interference of individual
commonwealths. ' '
Mr. Murray further quoted the supreme
court's definition of interstate traffic as
the practically continuous passage of
merchandise or other material from one
state to another. The fact that the ma
terial shipped, whether it be merchandise,
iron ore, logs or anything else, might be
transferred from one car to another, from
one train into another, or to ships or
docks, did not change the character of the
traffic, he added. It had even been held
by the supreme court that logs cut with
in one state and destined to another, but
which might be held for months within
a boom, was not robbed of its character
as interstate commerce because of the de
lay in transit.
Mr. Murray declared that interstate
traffic, while not dependent upon bills of
lading or way bills or other documents for
its identity, might establish its identity
by the use of such documents.

THE MINNEAPOLIS JOUKJNAL.
TO LEAVE AT ONCE
Messrs. Roberts and Gallup Who
Will Go to the Philippines.
NO WORD FROM WASHINGTON
It la Expected Soon, However—The
Recardi of the Youug
Horace Roberts and W. W. Gallup, the
two Minneapolis men recommended by the
state superintendent of instruction for ap
pointments as teachers in the Philippines,
will probably leave far San Francisco next
Tuesday. The next transport sails from
that port July 23, and it is understood that
the war department will Insist that they
be on hand at that time. Neither of the
men has received any official information
from the war department as yet relative
to their appointments. The most that is
known is that they have been recom
mended by the state superintendent. Mr.
Gallup said to-day that he rather expected
advices from the war department before
It is conceded that both men are ex
ceptionally well equipped for teaching in
the Philippines. Mr. Gallup graduated at
the Minneapolis academy in 1891, then
took a two years course in the Winona
normal school, and taught the two years
following.' He then entered the Uni
versity Law school and had just com
pleted his course when the war broke out.
He enlisted in Company L Fifteenth Min
nesota, and served most o( his term as
a clerk at the post exchange with the
rank of corporal.
Soon after his discharge he was ad
mitted to the bar and has been engaged
in the practice of the law since, with an
office in Temple court. He gets the ap
pointment . originally offered to Frank
Force. Force and a gentleman by the
name of Curtiss were originally named
for two of the four places. Both men
declined, however, and Messrs. Gallup and
Roberts were selected for the vacancies.
Mr. Gallup is a native of Dodge county, a
single man and* about 33 years of age.
•Mr. Roberts is about ten years younger,
a graduate of the Central high school and
at present a student at the University
Law school. He served with the Thir
teenth regiment clear through its term
of servipe.as. a, member of Company A.
Since returning home he has frequently
expressed the desire to go back to the
Philippines and this appointment gives
him the desired opportunity.

Andrews, who, with J. B. Donnelly, a
saloon man on Washington avenue, three
years ago was charged with forging clear

defended Donnelly and in that way came

to the charge and was sent to the reforma

GARSI IS RENOMINATED
SHA WCOILDN'T DEFEAT HIM
Remarkable Victory of the State
Senator In the Forty-eighth
Special to The Journal.
Dcs Moines, lowa, July 11.—The sena
torial convention of the Forty-eighth dis
trict, embracing the counties of Greene,
Sac and Carroll, was -held to-day. Sen
ator Warren Qarst was renominated by
acclamation. Strong resolutions were
adopted requesting" the legislature to
amend the laws governing the taxation
of railroad property.
This is the senatorial district in which
a bitter fight arose in Carroll county over
the selection of the delegation. When the
Carroll county convention was held, the
faction led by B. I. Salinger,that was sup
porting Clinton D. Dewing against Garst
and struggling hard to kill Garst off po
litically, bolted and selected separate
delegations to the senatorial and state
conventions. The Dewing delegation was
not at the senatorial convention to-day
and it is doubted whether it will appear
at the state convention.
Garst's victory in securing the renomi
nation is one of the most remarkable of
this campaign. He was bitterly opposed
by Governor Shaw, who is hostile to him
because of his opposition to Colonel H.
H. Rood and his prevention of the lat
ter's confirmation when he was named by
the governor for the board of control.
IN THE HARNESS
City Physician Nelson and Superin
tendent McDonald Take Hold.
Two of the new officials under the board of
corrections "and charities assumed their posi
tions yesterday. City Physician Nelson and
Workhouse Superintendent MsDonald took the
reins in hand promptly. Superintendent of
the Poor Johnson will wait for two or three
days, however, in order to straighten out
his private affairs.
Mr. Johnson's election is a source of a
good deal of surprise among the political
workers. He appears to be very little known
in political circles, even in hie own wa,M.
and the marvel Is that a man under such cir
cumstances could land such a good thing.
Commisaioner Russell is the only member of
the board who was acquainted with him or
had any knowledge of him. Mr. Johnson has
been in the real estate business in Minneapo
lis for a good many years, and up to a year
or so ago was custodian of the' Kasota btack.
He came originally from Maine and said to be
in very good circumstances.

FEWER ARE COMING
The Immigration Season Is Now
THE INFLUX HAS BEEN LARGE
One A K ent Pnt» This Year'i Total
'or the Weit at About
The Immigration season of 1901, the
largest the northwest has ever known, is
drawing to a close, though there will be
a desultory influx throughout the summer
and fall. Minneapolis has not received
so many of the Europeans as formerly, but
Minnesota and the Dakotas and states far
ther west have received a full share.
Norway, Sweden and Finland have sent
most of the immigrants to America, and
from p/esent indications it seems that
their people will come In still greater
numbers next year. This is believed to
be especially true of Finland, where the
conditions are growing almost intolerable,
owing to Russian oppression.
There is no prospect that the migration
to the west will spend its effort for sev
eral years. This year's arrivals, accord
ing to a careful estimate made by a local
immigrant agent, will reach fully 200,000.
Of this year's arrivals, the Finns have
been in a large majority. The Finnß
are as a class industrious and moral.
They are a very hardy race physically and
seem to stand a greater degree of hard
ship and exposure than other Europeans.
All of them read and most of them write.
Like others who came to America from
abroad, unfamiliar with our customs and
language, they take up the roughest and
least desirable work to be had. As farm
ers they are doing well in Minnesota. In
this state they will soon constitute a not
inconsiderable portion of the population.
They go in greatest numbers to the north
ern part of the state. Many of them
take work in the mines.
There is a lull in the flight of the
farmers from the middle states to the
far northwest. The volume was evfsn
ERTZ SIJES~ AGAIN
For Alleged Continuance of Produce
Conrad J. Ertz, through hia attorney*,
Messrs. Brady & Robertson, has begun a
second action against the members of the
Minneapolis Produce Exchange, charging
malicious conspiracy and an attempt to
boycott him in the prosecution of his bus
iness as a commission merchant. He asks
In a former action Ertz secured a ver
dict of.sloo, the verdict being the amount
of damages adjudged due him for the
length of time which the alleged boycott
was found to have been in operation at
the time of the commencement of the ac
tion. The action was Aug. 21, 1899,
and the boycott was alleged to have
begun July 19, of the same year. In the
new action it seems that Ertz sues for
the recovery of damages dating from the
end of the period covered in the former
suit, namely, Aug. 21. 1899, up to and in
cluding June 1, of this year, when he says
he was compelled to go out of businees
owing to his inability to secure goods
from the defendants.
In the Minneapolis Fire and Marine
Representative John C. Sweet has been
appointed by Judge Elliot as co-receiver
of the Minneapolis Fire & Marine Mutual
Insurance company and has filed a bond
of $5,000 for ihe faithful performance of
his new duties. The appointment is made
upon the petttlon of W. S. Dwinnell, the
receiver appointed last March, who states
that the business of the receivership is
large enough to Justify the services of
two men. Mr. Dwinnell states that the
estate of the company consists entirely
of assessments upon about 15,000 policy
holders, that the assessments average
about $5 each that the liabilities of the
company aggregate about $75,000, prin
cipally of unpaid fire losses, many of
which are claimed by the officers
of the. company to be fraudulent and void.
GRAND JURY FINISHES
The Fifteen Indictments Believed to
Represent Routine Cases.
The grand Jury completed its business
yesterday after a session lasting half
an hour and after reporting about fifteen
indictments to Judge Elliott the Jurors
were discharged by the court from fur
Contrary to expectation, no attempt
was made to continue the municipal in
vestigation which occupied bo much time
prior to recess and the indictments re
turned probably represent merely routine
cases which -were awaiting action. It is
know that there is no foun4ation for" the
report that an indictment was returned
against Charles A. Ebert, who was con
nected with the Loomis gambling cage,

HINSEY ADMITS IT
Former Endowment Rank
President, K. P., Says
Charges Are True.
Chicago, July 11.—John A. Hinsey, for
mer president of the board of control of
the endowment rank of the Knights of
Pythias, appeared before the supreme
lodge to-day and admitted the report sub
mitted yesterday to be true. This report
shows that the affairs of the endowment
rank under Hinsey's management drifted
into practical insolvency. The former
president of the board of control declared
that he had done his best to keep the
treasury in a sound condition, but that
death claims had mounted up, invest
ments had turned out failures, and it had
been frequently necessary to overdraw
the rank's account at the bank. The re
port, which was compiled by the presi
dent of the board of control, excepting
Hinsey, does not charge Hinsey and others
with misusing the funds, but states that
they were misused, and leaves the rest
Chicago, July 11. —The Endowment Bank
of the Knights of Pythias has a deSclt of
$225,267. This announcement was made
by Supreme Commander Ogden H. Fethers
yesterday to the supreme lodge of the
order, which has been assembled in this
city for the purpose of looking into the
affairs of the order. That there had been
misappropriations by the officers of the
endowment, rank was freely charged by
the officers and representatives of the
supreme lodge and it was stated that
aftre the lodge got through the matter
will be presented to the state's attorney
with a request that it be submitted to
the grand Jury.
At the session last night a motion was
made to expel John A. Hinsey, who was
president of the endowment rank during
the period in which some of the funds of
the organization are said to have disap
peared and others to have been invested
in poor securities, but the motion was
laid on the table, when it was represented
to' the meeting that Mr. Hinsey had ex
pressed his intention of appearing before
the supreme lodge for the purpose of de
CONSTITUTION OF CUBA
PLATT AMENDMENT AX- APPENDIX
; Wkat an Examination Zof the Offi
! . cial Document Bring* .'
Washington, July 11.—The war depart
ment has received an official copy of the
constitution of the republic of Cuba.
Chief interest naturally centers in the
manner In which the Cuban convention
has incorporated the so-caned Platt
amendment in the document. It appears
from the official draft that the conven
tion has formally conformed to all the re
quirements, taking care, however, to do so
with least possible Injury to a condition
of Cuban self-respect. The eight arti
cles of the Platt resolution which were
enacted by congress as an amendment
| to the last army appropriation bill, are
not made a "part" of the constitution in
the sense of entering bodily into its com
position, but they appear as "an ordi
nance appended thereto," following the
articles of the fundamental law of the
land, without comment or explanation
other than the simple "appendix." As a
further concession to the public pride
manifested by the Cubans, the last arti
cle of the Platt resolution is changed
somewhat. As congress adopted it, this
Vlll.—That, by way of further assurance,
the government of Cuba will embody the
foregoing provisions in a permanent treaty
with the United States.
The Cuban convention has stricken out
the words "that by way of further assur
ance," and the article is left to assert
with simple directness "the government
of Cuba will," etc

BIG FLOODS IN MONTANA
DAMAGE ALL ' OVER "■ THE j STATE
N. P. Passenger Train Wrecked on
an Undermined Track—Xo
Special to The Journal.
Helena, Mont., July 11. —Cloudbursts
and unusually high water are causing un
precedented damage all over the state.
The town of Corbin, twenty miles south
of Helena, was visited by a cloudburst
last night and much damage was done,
the extent of which is hot "known, as tele
phone and telegraph 1 wires are down. It
is reported a life was lost, but this has
not been confirmed.
A concentrator and other mining ma
chinery were injured, while the tracks of
the Northern Pacific and Great Northern
were carried away, delaying all traffic.
A cloudburst at Sanders, along the line
of the Northern Pacific in the eastern
part of the state, caused damage to the
railroad track and wrecked passenger
train No. 3, east bound, while going
thirty-five miles an hour. Water had un
dermined the track, and part of the train
went into the ditch.
The passengers were shaken up, but
not injured. Every car except the last
two sleepers left the track, some of them
plunging into a regular lake caused by
the heavy fall of water.
The Matter Cornea Up Before Alder-
men Again To-day.
The special city council committee having
under consideration the Omaha Railway com
pany's petition for the vacation of certain
North Minneapolis streets, will meet again
to-morrow at 10 o'clock.
Officials of the road have not only not
made the concessions desired by Minneapolis
shippers, but have ' not even sought a con
ference. This leaves the matter practically
between the business men and the aldermen,
and it 1b expected that the. former will be on
hand to-morrow to let the aldermen know
what tho city's interests demand.
Closing Out Sale.
Four days more and we retire from business. Our term of rent
expires Tuesday night and that will settle it. If you ever expect
to need a piano and don't attend this sale, you are doing yourself
a great injustice. Think of good used uprights for $60, $90, $125,
$150, payable at $3 per month. Think of new uprights at $125,
$150, $198, $210, payable $6 to $8 per month. Don't fool yourself
by thinking you will be able to do as well as this again, because
you won't. The line of pianos includes such make* as Whitney,
Everett, Harvard, Shirmer, Vose, Emerson, Hinze, and others.
I am almost giving away the organs and square pianos. Open
evenings. Remember, only 4 days left.
