Judge Nelson, sitting in the United States
Circuit court, yesterday, heard" the applica
tion of Attorney General Child? for an order
restraining the sale, under foreclosure, of
the Dult-th & Winnipeg road. The material
allegations of the bill asking for the order
•werfe set forth In the G1 ob cat the time the
bill was filed, some days ago. They are, in
brief, to the effect that the North Star Con
struction company was paid three times as
much as it actually cost for constructing and
equipping the road; that the object of this
was to enable the company to issue watered
stock and bonds on which to draw Interest
•from the people of the state; that the North
Btar Construction company Is, In fact, the
cwner of the road, and, that Van Home, of
the Canadian Pacific, is practically the owner
of the North Star Construction company, and
that the foreclosure and proposed sale are In
pursuance of an understanding that the prop
erty Is to be bought In for Van Home. It
was further contended that no bonds had. In
fact, ever been Issued to any persons outside
of those really In control of the road—ln

Attorney M. D. Munn appeared In behalf
cf the respondents, and took the position
that the court had no jurisdiction, because
the state is not a citizen, within the meaning
Of the judiciary act of congress; that the law
'/rohibiting the issuance of bonds for less
than their par value in cash, labor or ma
terial, Is a penal statute, and therefore the
•federal court cannot enforce It; that a court

enjoin its violation, and finally that the
bonds are valid, and the bill did not state
tacts sufficient to entitle the petitioner to the
Judge Nelson took the case under consid
eration, remarking that the real question to
be decided is whether the bonds were Issued
for a reasonable consideration and are valid.
Preceding the hearing of this question
Judge Nelson heard an application on the
part of Foley Bros. & Guthrie for a similar
order. They claimed there had been col
lusion in the bringing of the action, in which
the decree of foreclosure was given, and
that, as a matter of fact, there had been no
default in the payment of interest on the
bonds; that the road had money on hand
sufficient to pay the interest, but had not
Gen. Clapp appeared for the relators In this
matter, and Mr. Munn for the road, and after
hearing them for some time, Judge Nelson
refused to-grant the order.
POLICE COURT NEWS.
Saloon Porter Charged With Keep
ing the Lnnch Money.
Charles Donahue was arraigned in the mu
nicipal court yesterday charged with the
larceny of $20 from A. B. Lasher, a saloon
xnan. Donahue was employed as a porter at
Lasher's place, and the latter states that
Donahue was given $2 each day to pay for
the saloon lunch, which, for ten consecutive
days he appropriated to his own use. Judge
Twohy held Donahue in $100 bail until May 6.
A young man giving the name of A. D.
Smith, a stranger in the city, was charged
with stealing a pair of shoes from H. Gerken,
a shoe dealer at 527 University - avenue.
Smith was alleged to have tried on a pair of
shoes In Gerken's place and to have skipped
out when the dealer's back was turned.
Judge Twohy gave Smith the limit, ninety
days, at the workhouse.
George Beerstrom, a man sixty years old,
was arraigned on the charge of assault. The
complaining witness was Justice of the Peace
Rogers. Beerstrom extended a begging tour
to Justice Rogers' office, and when his re
quest for coin was refused, followed Mr.
Rogers to the street, where he assaulted
him and bit him in the wrist. Officer Marion,
on his way to dinner, witnessed the affair
and placed Beerstrom under arrest. The
old man was sent to Como for sixty days.

enness by Officer O'Neil. The girl stated
that she had come to St. Paul to visit a
friend, and that during the evening several
cans of beer were imbibed. The stuff had
made her sick, which accounted for her con
dition when arrested. Judge,Twohy decided
to give the woman another chance and or
dered her discharged.
DISMISSED THE WRIT.
Judge Nelson*'!* Action in the Kelly
Judge Nelson, in the United States district
court, yesterday filed an order granting the
motion of the respondents for the dismissal
of the writ of habeas corpus for the release
of Patrick Kelly from the Insane asylum.
Judge Nelson refers to the contention of the
respondents that Kelly was in the asylum by
vlrtuo of the power conferred upon the
probate court; that he Is a citizen of Minne
sota, and no question of diverse citizenship
existing between the parties, there was no
urgency for the interposition of the federal
Judge Nelson then goes on to say that, con
ceding the jurisdiction of the court, it has
discretion, according to the circumstances,
and the court failed to see the urgency for
Its interference. Congress did not Intend that
a person confined by state authority should
be released by the federal court in advance
cf the proceedings to test the validity of the
confinement or detention, in all cases, even
though the detention may be in violation
of the constitution of the United States.

Gen. Barnard, a government snag boat,
came up the river last night just before sun

The Barnard, a big sidewheel steamer, In
charge of Capt. David Tipton, left St. Louis

in removing snags and wreckage from the

the territory between St. Paul and the
mouth of the Missouri. Although a com
paratively large boat the- Barnard draws but
three and one-half feet of water and her
skipper says he experienced less difficulty in
making passage on this trip than for some
years, owing to the high condition of the
river. Some time was spent clearing away
the debris of a wreck which occurred some
time ago near Alton, 111. Beside her gallant
commander, the boat has a clerk, J. S. Wivill,
and a working crew of twenty-seven men.
The boat will remain here until Monday,

GEORGE J. GRANT AWARDED THE
CONTRACT FOR FOUNDATION
THE NEW STATE CAPITOL
VARIETY OP STONE "WILL BE USED
IN THE SUBSTRUC
LOHSE & CO., THE WINONA FIRM,
Failed to Comply "With the Require
ments of the Board In Some
The race is not always to the swift nor the
contract to the lowest bidder. With its usual
good luck In all matters relating to state Cap
itols, old or new, St Paul has secured the con
tract for the foundation and excavation work
on the new state house. The capltol commis
sion spent another entire day yesterday in
grave deliberation, brilliant repartee and pro
found cogitation, over the bids received April
21. The public supposition until today was
that the contract would go to J. Lohse & Co.,
of Winona. The commission was believed to
be entirely satisfied with the Winona stone
specified in the Lohse bid. This firm had done
excellent service on previous contracts during
the last twenty years. It was thought that
Mr. Lohse could furnish ample bonds, and
that he would gladly comply with all require
ments. Above all, the Lohse bid was the low
est bid. But rumor proposes and commissions
dispose. At the conclusion of yesterday's ses
sion the capltol commission announced that
Lohse & Co. "had failed to comply with the
requirements of the board," and that, there
fore, the proposals of the Winona firm had
been rejected. The commission refused to
make public any explanation of the particular
requirement with which Lohse & Co. had failed
to agree. Whether they were In connection with
the specifications of the work proper, whether
they concerned the length of time named by
thla firm for the completion of the work,
whether they related to a failure to secure sat
isfactory bonds, was not revealed. But it was
revealed that on the failure of the Lohse ne
gotiations the three next lowest bidders were
called before the board and asked to revise
their proposals so as to conform to the material
adopted by the board for the foundation work,
Bearing rocks to be granite.

product of Kettle River quarries. Granite was
selected as the best of ball-bearings known to
the art of the trowel and the science of the
blue print. An additional modification speci
fied that "the dome foundations are to be
point-faced instead of brush-hammered." The
most casual observer will appreciate that no
stylish building would consent to wear a
brush-hammered rock when It could get point
faced stone. The three lowest bids, as first

Under the new specifications, calling for
combined varieties of stone, the three lowest
bidders proved to be: George J. Grant, St.
Paul, $107,677; Lauer Bros., St. Paul, $112,403,
J. D. Moran Manufacturing company, St. Paul,
$115,661.50. The commission cast a single com
bined eye at these figures, realized that 12 Is
more *>han 7 and that 15 exceeds 12, and unani
mously awarded the contract to George J.

INFORMAL ART TALK.
Relation of the Artist to Practical
Prof. Charles Sprague-Smith gave an In
formal talk to the students of the St. Paul
School of Fine Arts and their friends yes
terday morning which charmed the audience
and contained a great deal of valuable sug
gestions as to the relation of the artist to
practical life. While not minimizing in any
way the importance of the artist, he pointed
out that from the Philistine standpoint art
is not a necessity, and the consequence Is
that the artist will do well to make but mod
est claims upon the world in return for his
work, remembering that this in itself is re
warding in that it gives him immediate
pleasure of a very high kind. The artst has
a "good time", which is denied the Philis
He called attention to the fact that In
America the field for the decorativo artist is
not only at present wide, but Is constantly
widening with the development of our civ
ilization, the growth of good taste and ap
preciation of the beautiful. All artists-^that
Is to say, all who are consecrated to the love
and service of the beautiful—cannot create
great canvases which shall live In the ad
miration of men, but all can serve In the
ante-chambers of art with Joy and content
ment. That life is not a failure which pro
duces no great work. Success is to do that
for which we are best fitted. As a practical
question, decorative art is the most helpful
to the world. "Hold to your ideals, but
