Made Mr. Blethen's Seattle
Alden J. Blethen, formerly of Min
neapolis and now owner and editor
of the Seattle Times, Seattle, Wash.,
has been aroused by a suit to collect
an old judgment of $37,888.96, filed
against him by Clarence H. Childa,
tl\e Minneapolis receiver of the old
Bank of New England. I a "in-
spired artiole" appearing in Mr
Blethen's paper, the Times, the case
is discussed a length from Mr.
Blethen's viewpoint, and sever al char
acteristic assertions are made which
have more than passing interest to
After saying many uncomplimen
tary things about the management of
the receivership of the Bank of New
England, the article takes up the sub
ject of Mr. Blethen's other debts in
curred before he left Minneapolis for
the west, and say s:
In addition to that, he owed $40,000 in
debts of honor, and was on bonds, notes
and obligations for other people to the
extent of more than $260,000.
Every debt of honor has been paid
with 7 per cent interest in most oases
and these debts of honor Included several
women who had money on deposit in the
Bank of New England, or owned stock
therein, but held Mr. Blethen's obligation
to make it good In case of disaster.
Again it is stated:
Again it is stated if the receivership of
the stockholders of the Bank of New Eng
land had made any effort, all that it has
now accomplished could have been ac
complished more than five years ago, and
thus the expense of all those years could
have been saved.
The Bank of New England, which
Mr. Blethen operat ed and in which he
was the heaviest stockholde r, failed
several years before he left Minneap
olis for the Pacific coast. I July,
1897, Judgments aggregating over
$72,000 were secured the 106
judgment creditors against the stock
holders of the bank. Of this amount
$54,400 was against Mr. Blethen.
Since Mr. Blethen's departure Mr.
Chllds has tried to secure a settle

$2,000, and this the receiver would
I the meantime, however, Mr.
Childs has collected $50,000, of which
he, as receiver, keeps 5 per cent. Last
July a showing was made in court,
and Mr. Blethen's pro rata share was
figured out to be $87,888.96. The
judgment against him was reduced to
that amount and the receiver ordered
by the court to begin an action against
him for that sum. This order has
been complied with.

Some of the citizens talk as follows:
Henry R. HigginsAfter the great
loss of life and suffering of those who
have received injuries at the Oak

culpable negligence on the part of the
aldermen and mayor to permit these
grade crossings to remain longer. I
seems necessary to sacrifice life and

matters but the public voice now
Eugene M. StevensI don't see
how there an be any difference of
opinion. The danger is constant ly i n
creasing and it has got to be fixed
sooner or later.
C. L. SawyerThere is probably no
question about the danger of the
present arrangement. I think the
railroad or street railway company
ought to reimburse to a reasonab le
extent holders of property abutting
the viaducts built over the tracks.
E. W DeckerMy opinion has al
ways been that all the street railway
trac ks ought to go over or under the
railway tracks. I doesn't concern
me whether the. street railway or the
railways do it I is a question of
putting up human life against a few
A. C. BainbridgeI think it is
time the city authorities take some
acti on and do something with the
grade crossings. They are certainly
a great nuisance and a great danger.
J. T. ElwellI believe we ought to
have either overhead or underneath
crossings. It is of the utmost impor
tance. There should be some syste
matic way of getting at the proposi
tion for the entire city. I seems to
me it ought to be taken up by the
council committee, with perhaps a
committee from the Commercial club.

MINNEAPOLIS CASE DUE O AT-

The Question of Pair Rates a Be-
A tween Raw Material and the Manu-

Difficulties and I Of Vital Interest
to Many Industries.
The recent appearance of Minne
apolis representatives before the inter
state commerce commission in New
York in an argument for rate stabil
ity, was only the opening skirmish of
a great fight that must eventual ly lead
all interest in the transportation
world. The Minneapolis millers and
the Minneapolis Chamber of Com
merce will be compelled to ask a spec
ial hearing of their plea for mainte
nance of equalization in wheat and
flour rates. This view of the situa
tion, already held by some Chamber
of Commerce men, is strengthened by
the opinion of D. N "Van Vlier of New
York, a prominent member of the
New York Produce Exchange, now in
Mr. Van Vlier left New York dust
after the Minneapolis delegati on had
made their plea before the commis
sion. The irguments presented opened
the eyes of the railroad men and rep-
lesentatlVes of eastern commercial
bodies, but while much good was do ne
in an educational way, nothing very
definite may be expected to result.
Minneapolis has a big fight on. The
issue is believed to be one important
enough to enlist the sympathy of the
industrial world and command the at
tention of the transportation interests
of the country whether directly inter
ested or not. But the on ly way Min
neapolis may hope to win is to flail
for a special hearing by the inter
state oommerce commission and put
the proposition before the country ELS
a matter of prime importance to the
country in an economic sense.
A present the commission, Mr. Van
Vliet says, is concerned with the
problem of the adjustment of New
York, Philadelphia and Baltimore dif
ficulties and the entry of the Minne
apolis protest has been received in the
east as merely an incident of the
hearing. Yet underlying the Minne
apolis argument for relative rate
maintenance between raw materi al for
export and the finished produpt is an
economic question vastly more impor
tant than that now being consid
The result of the hearing in the

week, was a mass of papers, all of
which are interesting, but probably of
very little practical value, for while
Ellio tt was full of ideas he was secre

Elliott was a highly skilled ma

in his own craft he represented him
self as a boilermaker and applied for
a job, altho he had never do ne a day's

smaller devices from which he ob

I his papers are found copies of
his correspondence with Paul Black
ma n, who was director for the United
States exhibit at the Paris exposition
in 1900. Elliott had a scheme for a
gigantic music al instrument for the
Paris exposition, a sort of a mam
moth steam calliope, which he de
sired to indu ce Mr. Blackman to sub

The calliope was to be of monstrous
size, so gigantic that six or eight big
high-pressure boilers would be required
to furnish the steam. had plans
drawn for the building, and the boil

range of about three octaves, or
twenty-eight notes to be exact, with
every whistle powerful enough to be
heard all over Paris.
CAPTURED A "GOOD GUN"
Police Say William Billings
When "former Police Captain
Krumw.eide captured William Billings, a
watch thief, he did not know he was ar
resting a man badly wanted by the police.
Billings as identified to-day by Joseph
Gleason, S6S9 First avenue S, whose resl*
dence was broken into Monday morning
and a quantity of Jewelry stolen. As there
is a strong case against Billings for
stealing the watch, it is not likely that he
will be charged with house-breaking.
Billings has been in the city for several
weeks. He was employed by Manager
Watkins of the Minneapolis-baseball team'
as ticket taker at the ball grounds and
was suspected of selling passes. His true
name is thought to be Roach.
Police Superintendent Conroy is in
clined to place the responsibility of sev
eral robberies in the eighth ward at' Bil
lings' door. He has been identified as the
man who was seen at various places in
the ward where robberies occurred soon
afterwards. He is thought to be the man
who stole the jewelry from the residence
of W. H. Gould, 2404 Grand avenue, about
two weeks ago, also from the residence of
Mr. Gettlnburg, 12 E Thirty-fifth street.

manufacture of dynamos. The General
Electric company charges infringement of
a patent of H. G. Heist of a certain kind

made of the infringed patents in order
