The State's Suit Aguinst Powers &
Recently suit was brought in the
Ramsey county courts by the state of
Minnesota against Powers & Dwyer,
lumbermen, ot this city, in which a
claim for $40,000 damages, alleged to
have resulted from the taking of logs in
section 10, township 50, and range 23,
Itasca county, is set up.
The answer to the complaint was
completed yesterday by A. V. Merrill,
the attorney in the case, and it will be
filed within a few days. In the original
complaint it is alleged that the firm cut
logs from the land designated, upon
which they never made returns to the
state. This allegation is denied in toto.
and the claim is set up that the firm
acted in good faith throughout tne
transaction. In 1890 a contract was
given to Towers, a member of the firm,
permitting him to cut timber on the
land designated at the rate of §2.10 per
I.UOO feet, and another permit allowing
the firm to cut timber on an adjacent
section was issued the same year, the
rate to be paid for the stumpage being
fixed in the second contract ut $2.75 per
1,000. The answer alleges that this con
tract is set aside and taken no notice of
whatever, and the state seeks to recover
in the present suit for all of the timber
cut, which has already been paid for at
the lates named in the contract. Not
content with asking for damages
amounting to the sum stated iv the con
tract, the stale, however, in its com
plaint, asks for damages at the rate of
18 per 1,000, an amount greater than the
logs would bring when lioated down to
the city ready to cut.
The claim is also set up that the
blame, if any is attached to the trans
action, should be borne by the persons
responsible, the state auditor and his
assistants, who made the contract, and
not by innocent parties who acted in
One of the first moves of the defense

A CONVENTION IN SESSION.
Jticlse Jamison Today Will
File His Decision in a
Gold Mine Suit.
DEATH OF GEORGE L. HILT.
Passing- of the Weil-Known
The convention of the American
Water Works association is tinaily under
way. The tirst session was held yes
terday morning at the West hotel. Tiie
attendance was very large, and, alto
gether, the affair was ushered in under
the most favorable auspices. The ex
ecutive committee held a short session
prior to the opening of the convention
proper. The latter was called to order
in tho ladies' ordinary at 10 o'clock by
President Donahue, the water expert
from Davenport, 10. C M. Foote, of
the Minneapolis entertainment commit
tee, was introduced, and in a neat little
speech of welcome outlined the plan of
the programme for the four days the
delegates will be In the city. Mayor
Eustis made the speech welcoming the
guests on behalf of the city, during
which he tendered them (figuratively)
the keys of the municipality.
"We want your earnest, candid criti
cism as hydraulic experts," said the
mayor, "ou our city water system, aud
also your suggestions as to how best to
Improve or change toe plan, if neces
sary. This is indeed a serious question
with us. and a 'policy' should be adopt
ed upon which we may confidently
work for years to come. I know that
you can give us tne best ideas on the
subject, and should you suggest as a
body any plan by which the water sys
tem of the city of Minneapolis will be
improved, you may rest assured that
the occasion will be remembered most
pleasantly by ali Minneapolllans."
President Donahue responded with a
brief and apropos address, and the Ma
sonic quartette rendered several selec
tions. The president's annual address
was interesting, especially to the dele
gates, inasmuch as it dealt with mat
ters of consequence to their association
and profession. During his discourse
"There is today invested in water
works plants supplying cities aud towns
upward of ?U00,.)00,000, or nearly one
tenth as much as is invested in the
railway systems of the country. There
ar<; over «3G,000 miles of water mains,
as compared to 170,401 miles of rail
ways. In the New England states
the mileage of water mains nearly
equals the railway mileage. Figure's
furnished by the interstate commerce
commission for the year ending June,
1893, show that the total number of tons
of freight reported by the railways was
745.1iy,450, while a low estimate of the
water pumped in IS9O by but 18 of over
2,000 plants exceeds 884.592,320 gallons
daily, which represents more than
1,343,317,865 tons ot water moved an
nually by these 18 plants alone, aud the
pumping of these plains today Is fully
50 per cent more tbau it was at that
time. But with the reasonably reliable
figures of IS'JO, we iind that these 18
cities alone moved nearly twice as many
tons of water as were tons of freight
moved by the entire railway system of
over 170,000 miles."
During tiie afternoon session, papers
on various topics pertaining to hydrau
lics were read, among them an exbau
tive treatise on "Filtering" by J. B.
liider, of New Yoik. The paper con
tained an analysis taken last week for
tlie state board of health of Massachu
setts, which, among other items, con
tained the following:
•'Turbidity of un filtered water, de
cided green; of filtered water, none;
sediment, unflltered, very rusty: fil
tered, none; color, unfiitered, 0.70: fil
tered, 0.15; odor of unfiitered water,
when cold, distinctly disagreeable and
flat, and very faintly disagreeable next
day; when hot, distinctly vegetable,
and next day faintly vegetable; residue
on evaporation, unfiitered, total 7.2;
filtered, 0.5; loss on ignition, 2.35 fil
tered; fixed residue, 4.95. Free am

tereu, .0526; filtered, .0108; in solution,
unfiitered, .0272; filtered, none: in sus
pension,unfillerad,.o2s4; filtered, none."
E. Geyelin, of Philadelphia, read a
paper on "Niagara Water Power," and
William S. Mcliarg, aCbieagoan and a
civil engineer, followed with a docu
ment treating on "The Water Supply
and Fire Protection of the World's Col
umbian Exposition." Both papers were
discussed by the convention.
In the evening a reception was tend
ered the delegates In the parlors of the
hotel. It was an informal affair, but
none the less pleasant. There were a
great many people who attended, and
several hours were passed in getting
acquainted aud discussing social things.
This morning at 10 o'clock the con
vention will begin business again. Dur
ing the forenoon the ladies will visit T.
B. Walker's art gallery, and in the aft
ernoon a jaunt will b<? taken to Minne
haha Falls. The delegates will continue
in session during the day. in the
evening there will be a carriage drive
to Lake liarriet and around the city.
MEXICAN GOLD MINE.
Decision in the Pnmons Snit
Whioh Involves the Shining
Judge Jamison today will file his de
cision in the famous case of Moses
Thompson against Henry D. Stocker,
The Century Investment Company,
James C. Klout, Willis A. Janies.George
L. Matchan et al. This case, which In
volves a gold mine in New Mexico
valued at something like a million dol
lars and the reputation of Henry D.
Stocker, the Minneapolis attorney, took
thirty-six days for trial and argument,
and consumed more time than any other
case ever tried before a Hennepin
The decision will be in the nature of
a victory for either side. The sub
stance of the decision is that no allega
tion of fraud can be maintained against
Mr. Stocker and that neither he nor his
assistants were guilty of conspiracy.
On the contrary, the dt-cision holds that
Mr. Stocker and his law partner, George
L. Matchan, did more for Thompson
and his interests than the rules of prac
tice required. On the other hand, Judge
Jamison will hold that a portion of the
stock was purchased by Stocker, who
appeared as Thompson's attorney In the
original suit, while he was acting as
trustee, and that Thompson can regain
I hat portion of the stock by paving at
torney's fees and other expenses and
satisfying the original iudements.
All of the other defendants are se
cured in their interests in the mine and
a portion of the stock held by Stocker is
not affected by the decision. While
Mr. Stocker acted in good faith, the
court holds that there was at the time
of the purchase of the stock a fiduciary

The case of The Northern Trust Com
pany against The Buckeye Publishing
Company was again before Referee Pat

things developed the original bill of
sale waß offered in evidence, which
showed the sale of the effects of the
Buckeye Publishing company to W. D.
Cameron for a consideration of SI. An
other bill of sale was read, which showed
the transfer of the property from W. D.
Cameron to the Housekeeper for 175,000

of George F. Jackson, who. at the time
of his departure, was said to have left

A Treasure in the Rook Line Se-
cured by the Athenaeum.
The Minneapolis Athenaeum com
pany has purchased a book which has
been assigned a prominent place in
American literature. It is the "History
of the Indian Tribes of America." It
was written in 1838 and 1840 by Thomas
L. McKenney, of the Indian depart
ment, and James Hall. The book con
tains a number of color drawings of In
dian chiefs on a large scale, and at
present there are very few volumes of it
to be obtained in the country.
The one purchased for the Minneap
olis library was secured at a second
hand store in New York city, aud the
pages are weather-beaten and stained
with old age. It has been rebound, and
will be placed in the art room of the
library. It is said of the book that it is
the most complete record of Indian
history ever published in the world.

The first of the teachers' congresses,
at the state university, was held yester
day in the laboratory building. The
morning session was devoted to a gen

taken up, resulting in a spirited con

Gen. Tio, commanding the Feng
Tien divisiou _ of the Chinese forces,
telegraphs as follows:
"The Chinese Friday attacked the
Japanese forces at Ping Yang, drivinir
tnem back, with a heavy loss, a distance
of eleven miles to Chung Ho. The
Chinese made a second attack Saturday,
and drove the Japanese from Chung
Ho, which is now in Chinese hands.
The Japanese again lost heavily In Sat

is expected today."
Admiral Freemantle, the British com

The Japanese are re-embarKing large |
numbers of troops at Fu San. Nothing I
is known regarding their destination.
The Chinese force which occupied
Yashan has evacuated that place, and
has inaroed eastward in the direction of
Seoul. The force, which is under Gen.
Yeh. who was falsely reoorted to have
been killed in a recent battle, has been
augmented by the adhesion of numbers
of sympathizing Koreans. The Chinese
forces are couvergiug on Plug Yantf.
The telegraph line at the latter point
remains in the possession of the Chinese.
Nine thousand Japanese troops have
left Seoul and inarched in the direction
of Ping Yang.
Two Genuaii fathers of the Catholic

COLORED MAN IN IT.
A Disturbance in the African
Washington, Aug. 21.— A formal
request to abolish the Afro-American
bureau of organization of the Democrat
ic congressional committee is made in a
communication addressed today to Sen
otor Faulkner, chairman of the commit
tee, by H. C. C. Astwood, chairman of
the negro national Democratic league.
Chairman Astwood, in urging immedi
ate action, says there is nothing to be
accomplished by the bureau; recounts
its assessment letters now under inves
tigation by the civil service commission,
and characterizes its methods as im
proper. He mutes that the work of the
league covers all the needs of colored
voters of the country aud that, though
appreciating the recognition of a negro
as the head of a bureau of the commit
tee, there is no reason for the existence
ot the bureau. The action is the result
of instructions given to President C H.
J. Taylor aud Chairman Astwood at the
league convention at Indianapolis.
Senator Faulkner, chairman ot the
Democratic congressional campaign
committee, said today that very good
and sufficient reasons must be produced
before the bureau would be abolished,
but that it had no power tv collect con
tributions. Senator Faulkner sa Id:
"The bureau is merely in its experi
mental stages, and it remains to be seen
whether or not it will be productive of
good results. What we want to do is to
reach the colored voters iv the best
manu er possible, and we will endeavor
to do that according to otir best judg

For our neglect of it by inflicting upon
us sick headache, by dyeing the skin
yellow, coatiug the tongue with fur,
producing vertigo, pains" in the right
side and souring the breath, we are
little less than lunatics If we disregard
the chastisement. If we call llosteiter's
Stomach Bitters to our aid. tranquility
and health follow speedily, and with
the departure of the symptoms men
tioned departs also irregularity of the
bowels, which Invariably attends disor
der of the liver. In malarial complaints
the liver is always Involved, and It is a
fortunate circumstance that this hue
anti-bilious medicine is also the finest
specific in existence for every form of
malarial disease. Nor is it less effica
cious tor dyspepsia, failure of appetite
and strength, nervousness and a rheu
matic tendency. It renews the ability
to sleep, and greatly promotes convales
cence after wastlngdiseasea.

Wilson Will Go Abroad.
|H Washington, Aug. : 21. — Chairman
Wilson will probably take a trip to
Europe soon after congress adjourns.
He has an invitation to take.a trip up
the lakes and another to cross the ocean,
and he inclines to accepting the latter,
as it gives greater prospect of recupera
tion, lie wants to be back before Sep
tember closes, to begin his campaign in
West Virginia. His health,, however,
will not permit a vigorous stumping
tour. Mr. Wilson said he had received '
no intimation as to what will be done
with the tariff bill. He is confident,
however, that the bill will become a
law, and he inclines to the belief that
it will become . effective without the
president's signature. In this event

A MIRACLE IN MISSOURI.
THE ACHIEVEMENTS OF MEDICAL SCI
ENCE FAR MORE WONDERFUL
THAN THE MAGIC OF
The Remarkable Experience of
Postmaster Woodson, of Pan
ama, Mo.— For Tea' Years a
Cripple — Today a Well and
(From the Kansas City Times.)
The people of Rich Hill. Mo., and vi
cinity have recently been startled by a
seomlne miracle of heallner. For ye'jira
one of the best known men in Bates
and Yernon counties has beeu Mark M.
Woodßou. vow postmaster at Panama,
and brother pi ex-State Inspector of
Mines C. 0. Woodson. of this city. The
people of Rich Hill, where be formerly
resided, and of his present home, 10
--member well tbe bent form, misshapen
almost from the semblance of man,
which has painfully bowed its head
hull to earth and labored snail-like
across the walks seasou alter season;
and when, one day last mouth, it
straightened to its full height, threw
away the heavy butt of cane which for
years had been Its only support from
total helplessness, and walked erect,
firmly, unhesitatingly about the two
cities, people looked and wondered.
The story or the remarkable case has
become the marvel of the two counties.
Exactly as Mr. Woodson told it to a
Times reporter It is here published:
"For ten years I have suffered the tor
ments of the damned and have been a
useless Invalid ; today 1 am a well and
hearty man, free from almost every
touch of pain. 1 don't think man ever
suffered njoro acute and constant agony
than I have since ISS4. The rheuma
tism started then in my right kuee, and
after weeks of suffering in bed 1 was at
last relieved sufficiently to arise, but it
was only to get about" on crutches for
five years, thft ailment having settled in
the joiut. Despite constant treatment
of the most eminent physicians the
rheumatism grew worse, and tor
the last four years I have been
compelled to go about bent half
toward the ground. In the winter of
1890-9l,afler the rheumatish had settled
into its most chronic form, 1 went to
Kansas City upon advice of my brother,
and for six weeks 1 was treated in one
of the largest and best known dis
pensaries of that city, but without the
slightest improvement. Before 1 came
home I secured a strong galvanic bat
tery; this 1 used for months with the
same result. In August, 189^, I went to
St. Louis, and there conferred with the
widely known Dr. Mudd, of hospital
practice fame, and Dr. Kale, of the city
hospital. None of them would take my
case with any hope of atlordi .« me
more than temporary reliel, and so 1
came home, weak, doubled with pain,
helpless and despondent.
"About this time my attention was
called to the account of a remarkable
cure by Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for
Pale People of locomotor ataxia, rheu
matism and paralysis. 1 ordered some
of the pills as an experiment. When I
began to take them the iheumatism had
developed into a phase of paralysis; my
leg from the thigh down was cold all
the time and could not be kept warm.
In a short lime the pills were gone, and
so was the cane. 1 was able to attend
to the duties of my office, to get about
as a well and strong man. I was free
from pain, and 1 could enjoy a sound
and restful night's sleep, something 1
had not known for ten years. Today
am practically, and, I firmly believe,
permanently cured of my terrible and
agonizing ailment. No magician of the
Far East ever wrought the miracle with
his wand that Dr. "W illianis' Pink Pill
did for me."

tion of doubt, Mr. Woou'sou mad c the

Picture on the New $5 Certificates
Is Said to Be a Work of Art.
W AsniNGTON, Auk. 21.— The secre
tary of the treasury ha 3 approved a
design for a new $5 silver certificate
which had been prepared under the
direction of Claude M. Johnson, chief
of the "bureau of engraving and print
ing. The original of the design was
painted by Walter Sherlew, the well
known American artist. The picture
itself occupies more than two-thirds of
the face area of the note. The central
figure is an angel with outspread wines,
: her feet resting upon the earth and her
I uplifted right hand holding an electric
! light. Half reclining at her right is a
I female figure with a trumpet at her
lips, proclaiming the achievements and
progress of the nation. Further to her
rignt is an allegorical figure of a man, !
! representing Power, guiding with his
left hand three horses abreast, while
with his right he grasps from the clouds
a thunderbolt which is connected by a
ribbon with the light held by the central
figure. At the left Is an eagle and
another female figure with a dim 1 , de
noting peace. In the right uackground
is a half-concealed picture of the capi
tol. Persons competent to judge of the
excellence of the picture as a work of
art declare it to be of a high order.
