TIMBER ILLEGALLY CUT.
Oases Where Timber Board Without
Warrant of Law Permitted Gutting
After Permit Had Expired Are in
the ListSix Companies Are De
fendants, and $167,786.12 Is Claimed,
Suit has been brought by Attorney
General Edward T. Young to recover
treble damages totaling $167,786.12 for
timber trespass from the following cor
porations and films:
Backus-Brooks company, Shevlin
Carponter company, Bonness & Howe,
Pine Tree Lumber company, Foley
Bean Lumber company and C. A.
Smith Timber companv
These actions have been commenced
under chapter 163, laws of 1895, which
holds a person cutting timber upon
state land without a permit, liable for
treble damages, and expressly prohib
its anvone from cutting timber upon
stat land the expiration of his
Kadepermitsafter
eimit. In all these cases the parties
which had been extended
and they had all failed to cut the
timber during the life of the extended
permit, but went upon the lands after
the extended permit has expired and
cut the timber which made them lia
ble for treble damages. Excepting
Bonness & Howe, they all have paid
the original permit price of the tim
ber, but this does not satisfy the
claim for trespass, and the state is
now suing to recover the treble dam
ages provided for by the statute.
The Backus-Brooks company is sued
for the largest amount. This is one of
the companies whose trespass was up
for settlement in a bill before the last
legislature, but the measure was de
feated. This company cut timber from
a number of state tracts in Itasca coun
ty. The amount of damages demanded
by the state is $89,895.76.
The Shevlin-Carpenter company cut
from a section in northern St. Louis
county and is asked to pay $51,324.42.
The trespasses charged against Bon
ness & Howe are all in Itasca county.
Damages of $10,951.61 are asked.
The Pine Tree Lumber compnay is
charged with illegally cutting timber
from two tracts in Itasca county. Dam
ages asked, $4,304.61.
The Pine Tree Lumber company is
charged with illegal timber-cutting on
one tract in Itasca county damages
asked, $6,554.03.
The C. A. Smith Timber^company is
charged with illegal cutting of pine
from two tracts in Itasca county dam
ages asked, $4,791.70.
C. S. Jelley of Minneapolis, the re
cently appointed special assistant to the
attorney general, will prosecute the
suits. YOUNG WIFE KILLED
BY REJEGTED LOVER
Mrs. Charles H. Gurney, formerly
Miss Donna Vincent of Minneapolis,
was murdered at Los Angeles yesterday
by S. A. Brightman, who took his own
life immediately after. Unrequited love
was the motive.
Mrs. Gurney was the wife of Charles
Gurney, a newspaper reporter there, and
was but 19 years old. Brightman had
proposed marriage on several occasions
but had been repulsed, and six weeks
ago she married Gurney.
Brightman went to the Gurney home
yesterday and, without warning, shot
the young woman and then himself. He
died instantly and she died an hour
later at a hospital.

It is not likely that either the Hen

the Minneapolis Homeopathic society
will comply with the request of Mayor
D. P. Jones for indorsement by the so
cieties of three of their members -for
the position of city physician. There
are candidates innumerable and the
older members foresee a nasty fight if
an attempt is made to choose three.
It is generally admitted by both
schools that Dr." Charles G. Weston,
formerly city physician, can have the
place again if he will say the word, but
is sanI to have announced that he would
not take the place if unanimbuslv ten
dered by the board of charities and cor
rections. In the six years devoted
to private practice he has reached a po
sition' entirely satisfactory to himself,
which he would be forced to abandon
to a large extent if he assumed control
of the citv hospital.

Details Not Announced.
Articles of incorporation of the

any local organization to date. The
stock is set at $100,000,000 and the debt

STRAIT TRUSTEE
FACES CHARGES
CREDITORS PETITION COURT FOR
HIS REMOVAL.
Fred Habbeger, Trustee of the Scott
County JBank and Other Interests of
H. Burton Strait, Charged With
Gross MisconductCreditors Say He
Has Sold Property to Himself Below
Value. A petition was filed in. the federal
court today asking the removal of Fred
Habbeger, trustee of the bankrupt es
tate of H. Burton Strait, Minneapolis.
The petition is signed by Jennie R.
Strait, the First National Banlf of Min
neapolis, the First National Bank of St.
Paul, the Security Bank of Minnesota,
the Sidney County Bank, Joy Brothers
and F. E. Holmes, all large creditors.
They are represented by Edward H.
Crooker.
Mr. Strait was the owner of the now
insolvent Scott County Bank at Jordan,
Minn., as well as of other large inter
ests. The bankrupt estate has about
$150,000 in claims standing against it.
There has been one dividend of 10 per
cent, and there is at present a large
sum on hand.
The petition charges the trustee with
having neglected almost every duty,
and in addition aceusses him of selling
a great deal of property without author
ity of the court. It is alleged that he
has sold property to the appraisers and
to members of his family, to one of his
attorneys and to himself at less than
actual value also that he has paid out
exorbitant sums to the appraisers for
the purpose of qualifying them to tes
tify as experts in certain criminal ac
tions, and that he has paid large sums
to his attorney without authority.
The petition' recites that the trustee
has engaged in extensixe litigation, and
that he has bene beaten in all contested
cases that he has expended much
money uselessly in litigation and has
hindered and delayed the closing up of
the estate.
Judge Lochren' signed an order to
show cause, returnable May 23, why the
trustee should not be removed, and di
rected him to deliver to the referee in
bankruptcy, certain books which the pe
titioners desired to examine, also his
account as trustee and his vouchers, and
restrained him from selling any of the
property or from expending any money
except for costs and expenses of certain
litigation until the petition is heard and
a final order made.

A purchase of twenty-seven feet of
Washington avenue N property at Third

property, which numbers from 218 to 22S
Washington avenue N. The building is
a three-story brick with a frontage of 132
feet and a depth of 165 feet to a sixteen

Judge E. F. Waite announced his
policy toward gambling today when
John Freeman, convicted of maintain
ing a gambling resort at 325 First ave
nue Sj received a sentence oi twenty
days in the workhouse.
"It will be useless for persons in the
gambling business to think they will
be let off with a money fine if con
victed," said the court. "There seems
to be an honest effort on the part of
the administration to stop the practice,
and straight workhouse sentences will
be given by this court the next year
and a half."
Altho this was expected, it is the
first time the new municipal bench has
announced its policy. Freeman was the
only man against whom the police got
direct evidence. When the police en
tered several games of poker were in
progress and the chips wer cashd in.
Nate Eose, from whose place at 254
First avenue S the electric roulette
wheel was taken, did not appear and
was found guilty by Judge Waite, who
declared the bail forfeited and imposed
a sentence* of ninety days in the work
house. Rose will be sought on a bench
warrant.
Others Dismissed.
The charge against James Garrity was
dismissed. The police were unable to
show that any gambling had been car
ried on at his place since Jan. 1.
Louis Friedman, proprietor of the
Ashmore club at 28 Sixth street S, and
Dan Leahey of 251 Hennepin avenue,
also arrested last Saturday, were dis
missed for lack of evidence. Some of
the parts of gambling paraphernalia
found there as well as the articles taken
from Garrity's place, will be held until
next Tuesday. In the meantime the
owners may claim them, but probably
will not. All other devices, including
the "phony" wheel taken from Rose's
place, will be burned.
MEETS DEATH IN PRISON
HARVEY C. ROGERS, SENT TO
STILLWATER LAST MONTH,
KILLED INSTANTLY BY TWINE
MACHINE.
Harvey S. Rogers, sent to Stillwa
ter less than one month ago for a year's
sentence, was killed in the prison yes
terday. While cleaning out waste from
under a twine spinning machine, his
clothing was caught and before his
companion could stop the machine
Rogers was crushed to death. His
skull was horribly fractured.
The ambulance was instantly sent for
and the body was taken to the hospital,
where the coroner of Washington coun
ty held an inquest this morning.
Rogers was sentenced April 17 by
Judge William Lochren of the United
States district court for using the
mails with intent to defraud. He had
invented seve'ral fictitious companies
which offered work at home, directions
and information costing $1. He had
previously been on trial in the United
States court while a postal clerk on
the charge of stealing money from the
mails.
Rogers was an exceptionally bright
young fellow. He was known by hun
dreds of people in the city, having been
a clerk in the postoffice for sixteen
years and having served thru the Phil
ippine war with the Thirteenth Min
nesota.
On the day of his acquittal, when he
was tried in the United States court
for stealing from the mails, hia father
died. It was commonly supposed that
he had inherited a considerable for
tune. However, he was fascinated by
the love of trying to get something
for nothing, and, like the vast majority
of people who once use the mails to
defraud, was unable to stop his at
tempts. He was an exemplary prison
er. He was 35 years of age. It is
said that he has relatives at Necedah,

President of the Great Western Rail

.*.f.jt,yy.v%
Minneapolis elevator men who have
followed the testimony in the rebate
inquiry at Washington were not sur
prised at the evidence of A. B. Stick
ney, president of the Great Western
road. Mr. Stickney's attitude with
reference to rate regulation is so con
trary to the position of other railroad
men, that his charge that railroads paid
elevator charges for heavy shippers in
stead of allowing rebates, was to be ex
pected from him.
The payment of elevator charges is
an old matter. The interstate com
merce commission acted upon it in'June,
1903 at a hearing in.' Chicago, the
specific case being that of a contract
between the Union Pacific road and
Peavey & Co., of Minneapolis. It ap
peared that when grain was in transit
to eastern points where the rolling
stock would leave the rails of the orig
inating road, an'd in other instances
where advantages would accrue to the
railroads from the prompt return of
cars, it was the custom to reimburse
the elevator companies for handling the
stuff, at about l%c a hundred.
Testimony was given by Peavey &
Co., by Darius Miller, vice president
of the Burlington Messrs. Monroe and
Storr of the Union Pacific, and Great
Western, and others. The commission
in December following found that such
payment was legal and in no way cen
surable.
SIGNMAKERS GET BUSY
HAVE LITTLE LIKING FOR REGU-
LATIONS PROPOSED BY THE
BUILDING INSPECTOR.
If the sign makers have their way,
the building ordinance amendment pro
posed by Building Inspector J. G.
Houghton for the regulation of street
signs will be a vastly different measure
when it is passed.
The signmakers have sent delegations
to Mr. Houghton, including George J.
Sherer, E. E. Peterson and W. H.
Thurston, but have been unable to se
cure any compromise. He stands for
his original measure, prohibiting any
sign from projecting more than three
feet from the building and requiring
permits for every advertising device
attached to buildings.
The signpainters are willing to have
hanging signs limited to twelve feet in
length and will submit to a litense.
They feel that Mr. Houghton is. over
strict in requiring permits to be taken
out. The building inspector says that
personally he cares little what kind of
an ordinance the council passes, as the
responsibility is on that body. He
thinks he has done his duty in prepar
ing the ordinance and pointing out the
dangers in the substitute prepared by
the sign men.

There has been no rain for nine

The ground was in good shape to work

panied by snow, which helped.
"The wool crop from Williston, west
to Malta, Mont., will beat anything
that ever happened in that section.

FIRST STEPS IN
BATE INQUIRY
FREIGHT BATE INVESTIGATION
STARTED AT CAPITAL.
Railroads Asked to Prepare Maps
With Rates Noted to All Their Sta-
tionsCommission Will Present List
of Compplaints ReceivedThree
Weeks Adjournment Taken for This
'v 0 rk.
All the railroads operating in Min
nesota were represented by their at
torneys before the state railroad and
warehouse commission, for the opening
of the investigation of railroad and
express company rates directed by the
last legislature.
The day was simply one of confer
ence over plans and discussion proved
the subject to be a much more exten
sive matter than had been imagined.
ID was decided that large maps of the
state would have to be made, and
tions in Minnesota. These will be
used as a basis for the examination.
The commission will prepare state
ments of places thruout the state where
rates are not considered *just, and will
ask explanations from the companies.
As it will take some time to get this
preliminary work in hand, the investi
gation was continued for three weeks.
This aftern'oon representatives of the
various express Companies met with the
commission, and decided that the state
must be first mapped out and the places
of disagreement as to schedules ascer
tained.
I think it may as well be under
stood, said Commissioner C. F. Staples
"that the commission desires not only
to investigate and adjust differences at
and between certain' poitns, but will
consider railroad and express "rates as a
whole thruout the state in comparison
to like rates as a whole in other
states." BUILDING TIEUP IN JANESVILLE
