MR. ROGERS EXPLAINS
The Suit of Mary M. Rogers
Vs. London & Northwest
THE QUESTIONS INVOLVED.
Mr. Rogers Has No Litigation
With Any One at thejf?
EFFECT OF THE HARD TIMES
On the Value of Real Estate—
A Transaction Said to Be
To the Editor of the Globe. .
My attention has been called to an
article in your Sunday's paper in refer
ence to an action pending In the United
States circuit court for the district of
Minnesota, in which Mary M. Rogers is
plaintiff and the Loudon & Nortnwest
American Mortgage company is de
fendant, in which you have mixed up
facts and drawn conclusions of your
own. 1 will state to you for publica
tion the exact tacts in the case:
ln July, 1887, 1 was the owner in fee
simple of all of G. V. Bacon's addition,
except three blocks (4. 5 and 12); these
three blocks I had conveyed to other
parlies, or they were under contract for
conveyance. At that time I was worth,
over and above all my liability, at the
current valuation of real estate in
St. Paul, a large amount of money.
There had been a mortgage on this
property, but I paid the same in
the spring of ISS7, and more thau ten
thousand dollars of that money had
come from the sale of my homestead on
Dayton avenue. Myself and wife were
then contemplating a trip iv the win
ter, which we subsequently took. I
thought it no more than proper that I
should deed the remaining unsold por
tion of O. V. Bacon's addition to my
wife, as 1 iiad used tbe money derived
from tha sale of the homestead to pay
tin; mortgage upon that property; and,
being absolutely solvent, I had an un-
Questioned right to do with my prop
erty as 1 saw tit. Ido not owe a dollar
of indebtedness now which 1 owed iv
1887. In November, 1889, 1 borrowed
$10,000 from the London & Northwest
American Mortgage company.- This
money was loaned to me and used In
my business, and was secured by a
mortgage upon individual property ot
mine, and also upon this property which
; 1 had deeded to my wife, and which
property so deeded to her has always
stood in her name on the
Records ol' Hamscy County,
and always belonged to her ever since
the time it was deeded to her in 1887. lt
was well known to the London & North
west American Mortgage company at the
time of this loan that this O. V. Bacon
audition property belonged to Mrs.
Rogers, and that she was in no wise
personally responsible for the loan. I
have paid upon the principal at differ
ent times $15,000, and interest and taxes
up to about a year ago. 1 have in my
possession the original report on the
title to the G. V. Bacon addition prop
erty made by Mr. Foot, the attorney of
the company, in. which he states that
the title to the properly is iv Mrs. Rog
By mistake and inadvertence there
was" a provision inserted in the mort
gage which, under late decisions of our
supreme;cuurt, would make Mrs. Rogers'
other Individual property liable for any
deficiency which might arise ou the
sale of the mortgaged premises, ln
June, 1892, the mortgage debt not being
due, the agents of the Londou &
Northwest American Mortgage com
pany, being very anxious to raise money
to p-y the mterest on their bonds,
agrt 1 with me to extend the payment
of the debt for one year from the date
of maturity, provided 1 would accom
modate them iy the payment of $10,000,
which 1 did; and the lime of payment
was so extended. There was no thought
at that time by myself as to the effect
on tbe status of the surety, Mrs.' Rogers,
and her property by this extension,
without obtaining her consent to it.
The company hade/ also a mortgage on
the property of a client of mine, and
suit, was instituted to collect said mort
gage, and in the winter and spring of
1891 1 was employed to act as attorney
for said client, lt seemed to anger the
agent ot the company, Mr. Paget, that I
should have presumed to interpose an
answer, or to do any business for said
client iv their suit against him; and
said agent commenced at once an action
against me to collect a balance of
I went to see the agent, Mr. Paget,
and, not finding him in, I consulted 'his
attorney, and inquired of him what he
meant by the suit, and whether he in
tended to push the foreclosure of the
mortgage which and mv wife had given
to the company. He replied that he had
no definite instructions to that effect, but
that such was a fair inference. Previous
to this time my wife had consulted Mr.
Horn as to her right in the premises,
and after this suit against me was
brought my wife again consulted Mr.
Horn, and he advised her that she ought
to institute a suit to reform the mort
gage as to the point above stated, aud
also to have the same declared not a
lien upon her property, because she, as
a surety, had been discharged by the
extension as aforesaid. He also advised
her that it she waited longer to insti
tute the action 'her rights might be
affected by such delay.
I have no suit with the company
whatever at the present time; 1 have
never denied the indebtedness, neither
have they ever sued me for it, except as
above, and I intend and expect to" pay
them every dollar that I "owe them.
But my wife, when she was apprised of
her rights by her counsel, was unwill
ing that her property should be sacri
ficed, as it certainly would have been,
under a foreclosure during our preseut
depression. If her propel could have
been sold at a fair value, I have no
doubt .but that she would have will
ingly disposed of a sufficient part ot-it
toward paying this mortgage. For ray
part, I prefer to trust the good judg
metlt and honest conviction of my wife
to do justice to the company, rather
than the desire of the company to
Do Justice to Her.
To express it more plainly, as long as
Mrs. Rogers holds the reins, she pre
fors to direct, instead of allowing Mr.
Paget to direct.
I have lived in this city nearly twenty
eight years, and have handled hundreds
of thousands of dollars of the. money of
the citizens of St. Paul and non-resi
dents, and I never was sued duringmy
residence here, for a : debt, until 1 was
sued by this company to collect a por
tion of the interest which I owed them,
and which suit was grounded in . spite
and entirely unnecessary. The de
pressed times have, as every one knows,
rendered it absolutely impossible to sell
real estate in St. Paul, at any price; and
of course those persons, who. owning
real estate.' owe money on it. are almost
at the mercy of their creditors. .If any
one thinks it is the duty of a surety,
when •' she has an - absolutely - legal
defense : - to an action, -to, submit
her property to be sacrifiea -, ' dur
ing, these times, then' their ideas of
equity and justice are not mine. That
is a question, however, which must be
left to each individual, and my wife
will not allow this company, or anyone

elst", to decide - : If for" her. There "Is
nothing about this transaction but what
is perfectly legitimate and straight;
there has been no concealment, mis
representation, nor misstatement, in
any particular, by me or any one else.
1 have practiced law in this stale for a
long number of years, and am well
known to most of the members of the
bur of litis city; nnd I am confident that
no man can say, or will say, that either
ni an attorney or' otherwise 1 ever
violated a contract, verbal or written.

SNUB OLD* SOLDIERS.
THAT'S THK COURSE OF THE
They Stand Xo Show of Getting
Employment From Office
Comrades of the Old Army: In the
following communication I wish to ask
you a few questions that may interest
you during the coming election. We
have for the last thirty years been told
that the Kepublican party has been the
great friend of the soldier. In national
polities we will admit that the Repubs
licau administration has been more gen
erous iv pension matters than the Dem
ocrats. At preseut we are in the
throes of a state and local campaign,
and the election will soon occur.
Now, comrades, what have the Re
publicans of the state done for the old
soldier? For example, ask Comrade
Reed, of Glencoe, who made peisistent
efforts to have one of the best soldiers
that ever buckled on an armor, who
served from 1861 to 1365, appointed to a
position in the grain depaitment. Did
he get it? No; a ring politician was
appointed. When Col. Taylor, state
librarian, answered his last roll call,
the old soldiers asked for the appoint
ment of his son, an old soldier, and at
that time his assistant. -Did lie get it?
No; Charlie Oilman was appointed.
The old soldier went to Stillwater as a
guard at $50 a month, when he was as
capable to liii the oflice of . librarian as
any man in the state. . lie had not th c
political pull that Oilman had. That
was the cause.
Did not a state Republican legislature
pass a bill, and approved by a Repub
lican governor, to give the old soldiers
the preference in all appointments?
You all know tbat the governor has
ignored every item in that bill. Take a
trip up to the capitol and see how. many
old soldiers are on the list of hundreds
of appointments. There are three.
Think of it, comrades, just three out of
hat whole number of 113 appointments.
Then, agaiu, take a glance at the Re
publican state central committee rooms.
Whom have they in their employ? Seven
young ladies, five youu? men. They did
show a little compassion and give one
old soldier a few weeks' work, but I am
informed they let him out Saturday
Then, again, look at the United States
marshal's office under Donahower's ad
ministration. How many old soldiers
did he give employment? One, Col.
Sheehan, the present deputy under
Marshal Rede. What did Marcus John
son do for the old soldier? Through the
influence of Senator Davis one old sol
dier was appointed, and Mr. Johnson
soon found a cause to remove him to
make room for au influential friend of
his. : . .
We will now wander into the court
house aud see how many old soldiers
have employment under Republican
officeholders. How many has Comrade
McCardy got? None.
Again, we hear the cry that we should
stand by Chapel. Why? Wbat has he
done for us? How many old soldiers
has he given employment?
Ido uot know that he has one. Last
winter, when there was uo employment
to be had, an old soldier applied to
Chapel for a job. This old soldier
served through the war from beginning
to end. Chapel informed him that as
: soon as an opening occurred he would
give him employment. - There were
three openings that occurred, and were
promptly filled by M. N. Ooss, a new
man of the city; John Hardy and Will
iam Fink; and the old soldier, who is
not a pensioner, walked the streets all
winter, looking for work to keep the
' wolf from the door.
-Now, comrades, that is the way the
Republicans have treated you. Can any
one of you deny it? Do not the facts
stare us in the face? Would not Mr.
Miesen do just as well to the old sol
dier as Chapel has done? 1 know,' and
all of you kuow, that if William Koch
is elected register of deeds be would do
as well tor the old soldier as Chapel or
McCardy has done. He could not do
less, as he is a son of a veteran, his
father, who was captain of ■ Co.
£, in the Fifth Minnesota regi
ment, having done faithtul and valiant
service for his country, and finally gave
up his life for the maintenance of the
Union. His son should be recognized
by the old soldier on election day,
though we hear no call from him to
stand by the Sons of Veterans. Very
few of the old comrades are aware tbat
he is a son of a veteran. We will look
the matter square in the face and take
a new tack and endeavor to •be recog
nized by others.
We find tnat in Nelson. Chapel and
McCardy we have no friends: therefore
drop party matters, and on election day
show to the public that you bave the
same manhood left in yon that you had
in 1801, and can resent the insult heaped
upin you by those who pretend to be
comrades to you. ■

Last Day. ;
The registration last < Saturday ws
materially smaller than on the two pre
ceding days, it being only about 4,641,
estimating six precincts that were uot
returned yesterday.! The registration
for three days amounts to 21.787, which
is 2,113 short of the registration for the
first three days last spring, and 346 -
larger than on the corresponding days
in the fall two years ago. The reg
istration fell off in every one of the

and indicates a . lack of interest.'
There is a possibility that tomor
row's showing will bring the registra

require the enrollment of about 8.500
names, or nearly double that of last
Saturday. The annexed tables show
the registration of last Saturday, with

TWO BAD BREAKS.
Called Before tbe Mayor, but
Given Time to Bring Hia -.
Patrolman A. B. Swenson was before
Mayor Smith yesterday to answer to
two charges. The first charge is a pe
culiar one. On Oct. 16 a warrant for
the arrest of W. H. and John
Atchley for disorderly conduct
was placed In Swenson's. hands
for execution. It seems . that
the officer found some difficulty in de
ciphering a portion of the warrant, as,
according to his story, he mistook the
number of the warrant, which he says
was 910, for 910 Beech street. It so
happens that George W. Rice, a build
er and carpenter, well known and es
teemed in the neighborhood, resides at
910 Beech street. It was at the early
morning boor of 5 when Officer Swen
son knocked on Mr. Rice's door, and
routed him out of bed for.the purpose
of arresting him. Mr. Rice arose and
protested, but Swenson was obdurate,
and insisted upon -taking. Mr. Rice to
the Margaret street station. -Mr. Rice
want, aud as soou as he arrived at the
station . Sergeant Flannigan, who saw
that there was a mistake, released him.
Mr. Rice was highly indignant, and no
one blamed bim, either. .
_ At the hearing before the mayor Mr.
Rice mid conslderabla stress upon his
American citizenship, and further upon
the fact of his being the only American
in the block— and then to be arrested by
a foreigner— it was outrageous. There
was one important discrepancy between
the- statements of -Mr. Rice and the
officer. The former says that the officer
did not read the warrant to him at the
time of arrest, whereas - Swenson de
clared that he did. If the warrant was
correctly and fully read to Mr. Rice, it
seems strange that the officer's mistake
was not discovered then and there.
The second charge against Swenson
was preferred by Sergeant Flannigau,
who testified under oath that Swenson
left his beat on Oct. 17 and remained
inside a saloon for about twenty min
utes. Swenson testified that he was uot
inside the saloon long enough to get a
drink. He added that he had witnesses
to prove that, and asked for an oppor
tunity to do so. The ma yor consented,
and the hearing will be resumed at 2
p. m. today before Chief Clark at his
office. Swenson has been a member of
the police force for five or six years.

fame of Dr. Price's Baking Powder is
