Coroner's Jury Disagree yonv on
Their Verdict in the .
Over Half Exculpate the Own
er and Contractor, From
Others Say the Men Should
Not Have Been Allowed
Organized Labor Roast the
Building Inspector in
The coroner's inquiry to locate the re
sponsibility of the death of the nine
men killed in the falling of the wall of
the Shepherd building Dec. 4 was re
sumed in the municipal court room in
the city hall at 2 o'clock yesterday. The
lirst witness called was F. J.-Steiger,
who stood within a lew feet of where
the wall fell, and who afterwards as
sisted in removing the bodies from the
ruins. He heard no cry of warning.and
saw no way they could have escaped.
John Latter. foreman of the gang of
men, was next called. There were sev
enty or eighty men working in
the' crew. He was standing in
the alley iv the rear, of the building,
when he looked up and saw snow and
dust whirling from the top of the build
ing, In a halt minute be saw the wall
toppling over and yelled to the men to
get out, but it was too late. He had no
ticed no cracks or flaws In the wall and
no one had suggested to him that they
were in a dangerous condition. He had
examined the Inundation and it was un
impaired. The walls were live stories
hiuh and no attempt had been made to
brace them. He thought the heat of
the great fire and the water, that was.
poured on the walls, with the changes
of temperature, had weakened the wall.
When the wall toppled eastward,
the weight pushed a part of the wall
which fell west into the other building.
He thought the high wind was the im
mediate cause of the wail falling. He

morgue. Under like circumstances in
the future he would not allow men to
In Such a Place.
Officer John Voigtler and J. E. Vie
pott, who saw the accident, were called,
but testified to nothing material.
David Johnson was working in the
Griggs-Cooper building at the time of
the accident. He heard the wall tum
bling, but no cry of warning. He con
sideied the wall safe and was not afraid
to work there.
Gates Johnson, buildiug inspector,
was called, and stated the nature of his
official duties. Had examined the walls,
and considered them in a fairly good
state of preservation. No one had
asked him to prevent men from work
ing in the building, and he had no
power to do so. He had power to con
demn the walls of a burned building,
but had not done so in this case because
he didn't think it necessary. The im
mediate cause of the fall was the wind.
He had never heard Bassr'ord say the
building was unsafe, but if he had had
the contract of removing the debris he
would not have allowed men to work
while high wind was blowing. No
braces could have been put in with
out first removing debris, and
that was what they were doing.
He had critically examined the wall
after the fire, and found the brick and
mortar in good condition and the wall

labor assembly committee, had exam

man who would say it was safe must be

Joseph Burns, a contractor, was after
wards called. He thought the action ot
the fire and water contributed to weak
en the wall, but the immediate cause of
the fall was the high wind. The wall
would have been safe under ordinary
circumstances, but the wind was too
much for it. Any wall would have been
unsafe in such a wind. He would not
have permitted men to work there
In Sucli a Wind.;
Martin How, engineer of the Griggs-
Cooper building, was talking to the
foreman when the wall fell, killing the
latter. He tried to pull the foreman out
of the way when he saw the wall com
ing, but could not. lie knew all the
men who were killed. The men had no
warning when the wall fell. There was
no lime to warn them.
Isaac Bowers .was employed on the
building when it was erected, lt was
built of good brick and good mortar.
Some of the brick bought for the wail
were condemned as too soft, but those
used were good. Great care was used
in soaking the brick so that the mortar
and brick would season together. lie
was superintendent of construction, and
knew that the wall was well built. He
was sure the wind and nothing else was
the cause of collapse of the wall. No
wall would be safe in such a wind.
Samuel 11. White, of Bloomington,
111., a contractor and manufacturer of
building material, who had been called
here to examine the walls, to estimate
the amount of damage to them by the
fire and consider the necessity for tear
ing them down, had examined the walls
very carefully with the eye of an ex
pert and found them standing plumb,
with no cracks or flaws visible. Water
could not have caused the fail, because
no streams played on that part of the
wall, and the common-sense verdict
must be that the wind caused the col
lapse. The adhesion of brick and mor
tar was perfect, as could still be seen
by examining the debris.
Timothy lieardon and James Burke,
builders, -were called, and agreed that
the wind was the immediate cause of
the fall. The latter thought the weak
point in the wall was where the joists

who, after considering the evidence,

The second verdict, signed by T. F.
Martin. Charles Passarant and Charles
F. Pusch, reads:
Beceasea came to their death on account
of the falling of the partition wail between
tbe building of Griggs, Cooper & Co. and
Farwell, Ozman, Kirk & Co., the two upper
stories of said building being unsafe, and
that the immediate cause of the falling of
said wail was the wind, and that the men
who were killed should not have been al
lowed to work in said buildings.

ROAST FOR JOHNSON.
Call for the Appointment of a
Practical Building Inspector.
At last night's meeting of the trades^
and labor assembly, Messrs. D. Bar
nard, painters' union; Oscar Berger,
bricklayers' union; J. C. Stehlman, cor-*
niceworkers' union; E. M. Stevenson,
carpenters' union, and James Clancy,
plasterers' union, the special committee
appointed to impure into the disaster at
the Shepherd building, reported that it
should have been evident to any prac
tical man acquainted with the action of
intense heat on brick walls that the
partition walls, exposed on both sides
to the fire, were not only unsafe for
use in a new building, but liable to
fall at any moment.
The great blame, we are satisfied, rests
upon Buildint: Inspector Johnson. He
should have seen at a glance the evi
dent fact that there would be treat dan
ger to human life in allowing the walls
to stand; and. If undecided, could have"
taken the counsel and advice of the ar
chitect. The fact that the owner of the
buildins desired to utilize the old walls,
and thereby save expense in rebuilding,
should have had no weight with a public
official, whose duty it is to protect life.
In our judgment, oven the outside wall
above the second story cannot with
safety be used in a new" building or al
lowed to stand. As a committee repre
senting the mechanics and laborers of
the city, and having their protection at
heart, we earnestly protest against sucli
foolish and reckless exposure of human
life; nor do we believe that the criminal
careless that has led up to tne accident
should go un rebuked.
The report was filed, and the follow
ing action by resolution taken by the

and thickness that, without oilier support, ii
was liable to collapse at any moment: and.
Whereas. Building Inspector Johnson has

entrusted to his chaise; therefore, be 11

The man cut to pieces Thursday night
by a freight train on the Kansas City
railroad bridge was yesterday identified
as August Podwitz, a laborer residineat
397 University avenue. Mrs. Podwitz
yesterday reported to the Hondo street
police station that her husband was
missing, and the description she gave
tallied with that of the man killed.
Among the names in the pocketbook
found in the dead man's pocket was
that of August Podwitz, and the police
had no doubt but that the unfortunate
man was Mrs. Podwitz's husband. The
remains at Dampier's undertaking
rooms were fully identified by Mrs. Pod
witz as those of her husband. Mrs. Pod
witz has five children, who are rendered
fatherless by the sad occurrence.

- The lease of the Merchants' hotel for
a period of ten years to D. C. Miller, of
the Cook house, Rochester, and 11. L.
Leland, of the Leland, of Sibley, 10.,
will be signed today. Some weeks -ago
Mr. Miller made a trip to this city and
talked the matter over with Col. Allen,
and practically settled the details. This
was first announced in the Clock of
the Following day. The execution of
the papers was deferred until Mr.
Miller could have his partner present.
Last evening both arrived in the city,
and this morning they will meet Col.
Alien and sign the papers.
The terms of the lease nrovide for re
pairs and improvements to the amount
of about ?i*),UOO, Col. Alleu agreeing to
make this expenditure for that purpose.
It is said the side walls ou Jackson
street will lie torn oat and a glass front
placed there. These improvement*
will acid greatly lo the appearance as
well as the accommodations of the
house. The lease is to be for ten years
and the annual rental will be IHU.OQU

Messrs. Millet and Leland are both
on the sunny side of ti f ty. and are ex

managing the best and most popular
hotels in their respective towns. Tliey
will devote themselves to managing the
business of tiie Merchants', one taking
charge ot the office and the other doing
the purchasing and looking alter the
back part of the house. Mr. Miller will
be the office man ami Mr. Leland will
take the other place. They are wide
awake ami public-spirited men, and
propose to be in line in everything.
The Democratic national convention
they think must come to St. Paul, and
they are ready to do their share to
wards securing it.
"I have been asked." said Mr. Leiaud.
"what an would give towards the guarautv
fund. Now, Ido not know what lias bee
done or what is expected of us. but 1 will say
that we will do .mr part. We believe that
tliat convention will be a great card for the
city if ii comes here, and we want
the people of at. Paul to under
stand that we will do the right
thing. Ido not see why the prospects of st.
Paul are not as good, if not better than auy
other city. I understand Col. Richardson,
oi lowa, has expressed iii- preference for
St. Pad. and. as I have the honor of being
personally acquainted with him I shall write
and urge niu to continue in favor of St.

The lease of Col. Welz was for five
years, ami expires on April first next.
Col. Welz did not seek a new lease for
the reason that he proposes to retire
from the hotel business with the expira

SUNDAY DOESN'T COUNT.
Judge Nelson on the Legality of
the Assignment Law.
In the case of John V. Farwell & Co.
against John Matheis and Theodore
Diaz, as garnishees, pending in the
United States circuit court, Judge
Nelson has filed an opinion and ordered
the garnishee discharged. The decision
involves the validity of an act ot the
legislature of lbtS9 on the point of its
being approved within the time re
quired. Theodore Draz is the assignee
of John Matheis. Farwell & 06. sought
to secure some funds in the hands of
Draz by garnishment and apply them to
satisfying a large claim against Matheis.
With this object in view the validity of
the assignment law of 1889 was at
tacked as being invalid, because,
as alleged, it had uot received the ap
proval of the governor within the re
quired time. Judge Nelson, after an in
spection of the act and the journals of
the legislature, decides the law to be
valid and properly approved in point of
time. The bill passed the senate Satur
day, April 20. 1880, having previously
passed the house, 'lhe legislature ad
journed the following Tuesday. The
bill was indorsed April 23 by the gov
ernor as approved and filed with the
secretary of state April i"*, or two days
after the adjournment. The state con
stitution provides that the governor may
approve, sign and file within three days
after adjournment any bill passed dur
ing the three last days of the session,
and the same shall become a law. The
plaintiffs claim that Sunday should be
named as one of the days of the session,
and that the bill passing the senate Sat
urday should not be taken as being
passed within the three days of the ad
journment. Judge Nelson says:
•■The construction turns on the word 'ses
sion.' Sunday is 'non dies' for work even in
a legislature, "if business is actually trans
acted on that day no record is kept of it as
being done on that day. Tne "last three days
of the session' means working days of actual
session. It appears from' tbe journals of
each branch that Saturday, April '20,
was the seventy-eighth day of the session,
and the adjournment was nad on Tuesday,
the eightieth day of the session. Sunday was,
therefore, not a day of the session. In my
opinion, tbe act was duly passed and ap
proved in time to become a law."
