Son of Joseph Rolette, and Recently Ap
pointed to the Capitol Staff.
HE recent employment, of Henry
Rolette of St. Paul as a janitor at
the new state capitol, recalls to
the minds of many old pioneers how,
years ago, the father of this man, by a
bold piece of work, prevented the re
moval of the state capitol to St. Peter,
where it would otherwise probably be
located this day.
The story is a famous one of early
days in Minnesota, and its details are
known to but a few old grizzled set
tlers still surviving that strenuous pe
riod of the state's earliest history. In
fact, some portions of the tale are
generally filled in by conjecture. The
following, however, is vouched for as
the true version of the affair by Henry.
Rolette, who received his information
from his father*
Joseph Rolette, a French pioneer, was
a member of the third territorial legis
lature, which met in St. Paul in 1852.
He represented that part of the terri
tory up along the Canadian line known
as Pembina county. The legislature
then met annually, and he was elected
a member every year thereafter till
1858. In 1856 and 1857 he was a mem
ber of the council, which was practic
ally the same astho present state sen
ate. Ihiring the session of 1857 he
was chairman of the committee on en
rolled bills, and it was in this capacity
that he seized the opportunity to com
mit the most audacious act ever car
ried out in the history of Minnesota
legislatures to defeat a pending bill.
Removal Was Favored.
The legislature was unquestionably in
favor of the removal of the capitol of
the territory to St. Peter, which gave
every promise of being the future
metropolis of the state. The bill estab
lishing the capitol at St. Peter had
first passed the council Feb. 12, and six
days later passed the house. St. Paul
members made a gallant fight against
the measure, and as a last resort of
fered to compromise by having the cap
itol located on Nicollet island, now a
part of Minneapolis. The Hennepin
county members, fearing some trick,
woulct not listen to this proposition. All
was ready for the signature of the bill
by Governor Gorman, who had been ap
pointed territorial governor to succeed
Governor Ramsey. Governor Gorman
had already signified his intention of
signing the measure when it came to
Five days before the close of the ses
sion the enrolled bill was given to Ro

mittee, to compare it with the original
Desperate circumstances require des

Rolette knew the only remedy was to

Fargo, N D'.,. June 3:Even the cod
fish balls are adulterated, according to
the investigations by Pure Food. Com
missioner Ladd. He has examined many
samples of codfish as sold by Ideal deal
ers, and finds that many contain large
percentages of boracic acid and are un
fitted for food. The highly adulterated
condition is dangerous and much of the
Btuff will be placed under ban.
Another movement that is being vig
orously prosecuted by the commissioner
is one looking to a strict enforcement
of the new law regarding the weights
of prepared packages sold as pounds.
He will insist on the net weights being
given on the packages. Examinations
show that many so-called pound-pack
ages weigh as low. as eleven ounces.

enth and Jackson streets, telling the
bankers the bill was an important pa
per involving the title to an estate. He
then took the landlord of the Fuller
house into his confidence, and, securing
a room on an upper floor, went into hid
ing for the remainder of the legislative
The following day, when Rolette
failed to appear at the legislative ses
sion, the friends of the'bill "smelt a
mice/' and passed a resolution calling
for an immediate report on the bill
from Rolette, or if the chairman could
not be found, from the next ranking
member of the committee. A call of
the house failed to bring in the missing
Frenchman, and a little further investi
gation showed that the other members
of his committee knew nothing of the
missing bill. The friends of the bill
then moved to proceed with the meas
ure but here they made a mistake. Un
der the existing rules it required a two
thirds vote to dispense -with the pro
ceedings under the call, and they could
not muster the voting strength needed.
Until the call was dispensed with, no
further business could be transacted. So
John* M. Lamb, sergeant-at-arms, was
sent out with orders to bring in Rolette
at all hazards.
The search made for the absent
councilman was a memorable one. Re
ports were that he had been seen at
various places. Each clue was followed
up, but with no avail. In the mean
time Rolette lived high in his room
at the Fuller house, and the landlord
faithfullv kept his secret.
For 123 hours the legislature re
mained in continuous'session, the mem
bers remaining where they could be
summoned on a moment's notice.
New Law Was Illegal.
Finally, a new law was drafted and
passed, but the speaker refused to sign
it, holding it was invalid. Governor
Gorman signed it, but later, when St.
Peter people brought mandamus pro
ceedings under the measure, Judge, Nel
son of the United States court ruled
the law invalid.
A few minutes after President John
B. Brisbin declared the council ad
journed Rolette appeared with the miss
ing bill. It was too late, however, for
any action on the measure too late
even to pass a valid, resolution of cen
And so it was that Joe Rolette saved
the capitol for St. Paul. And it was
partially in memory of Joe Rolette's
work that Henry Rolette, his son, was
given a position in the new capitol
when he applied.
Henry Rolette, who spent his boy^
hood in Minnesota, later went west to
try his fortune.. The home of his
father, however, proved more satisfac
tory to him than new fields, and so he
returned to St. Paul. He has a reputa
tion for integrity and industry which
will probably assure him his' present
position as long as he desires to hold it.
collected by fire insurance companies go
to the state and are distributed among
the firemen. The fund for Fargo
amounts annually to about $2,000. Last
year City Treasurer Mitchell took the
position that the fire companies were
really a paid department, and the city,
not the companies, was entitled to the
funds. He^was enjoined and the case
has been appealed but not argued.
