TALES OF THE TRAVELERS
"Absolutely the worst storm ever
known on the .lakes," is the description
Henry Gujer of Duluth gives of the
leeent hurricane which caused such dis
astei to shipping.
"The wind blew sixtv to seventy
miles_an hour," he said to a reporter
at the Hotel Nicollet todav, "and
swept everything at all frail to de
struction. On Lake street, not a 10'e-
graph, telephone or streetcar pole was
left standing. The iron trolley poles
of the street railway were broken off
short and wires were twisted and strewn
everywhere. A furious snow and sleet
storm prevailed at the same time as
the wind, and covered everything with
a heavy sheet of ice. This doubtless
did much toward the breaking of wires.
All property along the lakefront was
more or leBs damaged. The wonder is
that lake shipping did not suffer more
than it did. The terrific violence of the
storm was almost irristible. So badly
was the Duluth streetcar. system de
moralized that it -was not in opsration
for forty-eight hours after the storm.
"N o, there is no organization of Du
luth citizens or action of the Duluth
Commercial club toward giving relief to
the storm sufferers. The sufferers were
all those who were on vessels, and they
were cared for by the steamship com
panies owning the vessels from which
they were taken. The work of securing
the bodies from the unfortunate steamer
Mataafa was the most difficult work
after the storm. Contrary to the gen
eral impression which seems to have
gone out, this steamer is not sunk in
deep water, but is stranded on the
beach. All of the bodies of those who
were drowned on this vessel have been
rescued but two. None of the unfor
tunates left the steamer, but remained
on deck and were there frozen, so that
the rescuers had to chop the bodies out
of the ice with axes. The two bodies
not recovered are of members of the
crew who were below decks. Divers
will probably have to be secured for

"For shipments along one line of
road," he said, "there is not so much
difficulty. But to get cars to be shipped
from one line on to another road, is a
hard proposition. Each road is afraid
to let its cars ero for fear the line re
ceiving them will keep the cars and use
them till the present car shortage be

THE MINNEAPOLIS JOURNAL,
Solitary* confinement may not be em
ployed as punishment for inmates of
poorhouses who violate the rules, says
Attorney General Young in an opinion
ive today to 1^ A. Bosmg of the state
of control. Such punishment was
a delegate to the state
conference of charities and corrections
meeting St. Peter. To settle ques
tions raised by the discussion, Mr.
Bosmg put the following inquiries to
the attorney general:
FirstHave the county commis
sioners the right to make rules author
izing the keeper of almshouses to place
inmates in solitary confinement?
SecondMay they make rules pro
viding for the opening and inspection
of mail received or sent by th3 bimates?
"ThirdHas a poor,person, wuo ac
cepts public aid, lost his citizenship?
FourthDoes a person who accepts
public aid at the almshouse of any
county thereby lose his right to the
In reply, the attorney general says:
I beg to say that a clear distinc
tion must bo made between charitable
institutions and correctional institu
tions. A person can be deprived of his
liberty, as a punishment, only by a
competent court, for violation of a pub
lic law. But defectives and depend
ents who are legally received into insti
tutions maintained at public expense,
may be required to conform to such
rules as are necessary for the orderly
management and administration of the
institution of which they are inmates.
An applicant for aid in a public poor
house would, necessarily, be required to
surrender some of the privileges of in
dividual liberty. He must conform to
all the reasonable rules adopted for the
preservation of good order, health and
general welfare of the inmates. The
keeper may prevent mischievous and
disorderly acts by a reasonable amount
of preventive force where other means
are unavailable, but he would not be
permitted to enforce the severe punish
ment of solitary confinement it is not
authorized by law.
"For such unjustifiable severity a
poor house keeper was held liable for
damages for false imprisonment in the
state of Illinois. (45 111. App. 77).
"In 34 Conn. 132, the supreme court
of that state held a keeper liable for

"Your second question must be
answeied in the negative, unless such

some unlawful purpose.

would answer in the negative but a

an almshouse therein." 1

MILES OF RED TAPE
ON NAYY PRIZE CLAIM
Washington, Dec. 2.It took twenty
nin'e typewritten pages, and hours of
labor, for the controller of the tteasury
to decide yesterday that Will F. Arnold,
surgeon in the navy, retired, should re
ceive $89 in prize money, earned while
attached to the United States"ship Be
solute at the time of the capture of the
steamer Adula in Gnantanamo bay,
June 29, 1898.
The auditor for the navy department
had disallowed the claim, because the
name of the surgeon was not included
in the list submitted by the commander,
and that the other officers had received
their share. The controller held that
the including by the commander of the
vessel of the name of the surgeon in the
list was only prima facie and not con*
elusive evidence that, altho the surgeon
was temporarily absenfc on shore duty,
he was not detached from the vessel,
and therefore should receive the money.
Assistant Controller Bowers decided
in 1895, that it was not within the pow
er of the auditor to correct an error in
the prize money payment after the pay
ment had been made because the money
belonging to one person could not be
used to pay a debt to another.
This decision Controller Tracewell
overruled, saying that "on the discov
ery of the error, those whose names
have been omitted are entitled to a
share in the undistributed portion of
the fund, the same in all respects as
those whose names have hot been
omitted, but who remain unpaid."
The amount of the prize money still
unpaid is $5,226.75.
