FUDGE EGAN»S ACTION UPHELD
In an Action of Local Interest—Other
Decisions Handed Down Yes
Chief Justice Start, of the supreme court,
landed down four opinions yesterday, the
most interesting of them being an affirmation
of the decision of the Hennepin county dis
trict court, Judge Belden sitting, ln the case
bf the American Building and Loan associa
tion. The supreme court upholds the attor
ney general ln his right to Intervene in the
case as the protector of the interests of share
holders against abuses ln management In
his opinion, Justice Start says that while
the company ls ostensibly organized to as
sist its members Jn saving and Investing
their money, in Improving real estate, etc.,
this beneficent purpose was utterly defeated
by the unlawful acts of the managers, which
laave been so continued as to amount to a
clever violation of the conditions under
which the franchise was granted, and to
place the company in a condition where It
can no longer fulfill the purpose for which it
The company is further held to be guilty
of gross misuses of its franchises and viola
tion of the laws binding upon it. Instead of
assisting the members, it has during the
past seven years apparently used and ap
propriated $672,442 belonging to the mem
bers, or 65 per cent of the profits, and In
Violation of the law also Invested $202,000 of
the funds ln the stock of an Insurance cor
poration, which stock was issued to certain
directors of the defendant corporation, and
although repayment was made in form, se
cured by real estate, the whole will be lost
to the association.
It is stated further that the association
paid to its officers such exorbitant salaries
and managed the concern so extravagantly
that all the profits on the money of the
members for seven years and 30 per cent of
the principal were either lost or absorbed. It
ls still found that the assets have been im
paired beyond recovery, and its continued
opera.ion would be at a substantial loss to
all stockholders, and that to longer permit
the concern to go on ln this way would be
a reproach to the state and to countenance
a public fraud. Following is the syllabus:
State of Minnesota ex rel. H. W. Childs,
attorney general, respondent, vs. American
Savings and Loan Association, appellant
1. A building and loan association doing
business under the provisions of chnpter
131, Laws of 1891, is a corporation havt_| the
power to make loans on pledges, and may.
In an action by the attorney general, on be
half of the state, under provisions of section
li9oo, General Statutes of 1894, be restrained
from exercising any of its corporate rights
whenever it violates the provisions of its
acts of incorporation or any other law bind •
Ing on It.
2. The attorney general may bring such
action in his discretion, although the public
examiner lias not filed with him a statement.
showing a violation of the law by such as
sociation, as provided by section 2874, Gen
eral Statutes 1594. This sectio» is not a
limitation on the discretionary power of the
attorney general to prosecute such action,
except that if such statement is filed with
him he must proceed against - such associa
tion as provided by law :in the case of in
solvent corporations or institute such other
proceedings as the occasion may require.
3. Whenever a corporation violates the pro
visions of its acts of incorporation or any
other law binding on it and so misuses Its
franchises ln matters which concern the es
sence of the contract between It and the
state so that It no longer fulfills the pur
pose for which it was created, the state has
an interest in restraining the further exer
cise of its corporate rights, and may, by the
attorney general, maintain an action to so
restrain the corporation and for a. receiver
for its property. Complaint considered, and
held that it states facts sufficient to con
stitute a cause of action within this rule.
Order affirmed. —Start, C. J.
'A case of local Importance handed down
was that of E. E. Putnam et al., petitioners,
vs. the District Court of Ramsey County and
J. J. Egan, respondents, In which the decis
ion of Judge Egan was to the effect that the
special provisions of the St. Paul charter,
with regard to the making and collecting of
reassessments, were not repealed by chapter
206, General Laws of 1893. Following is the
In re assessment of opening Linwood place,
E. E. Putnam et al., petitioners, vs. District
Court, Second Judicial District, Ramsey
County, and J. J. Egan, Judge, respondents.
First—The charter of the city of St. Paul
provides that whenever an assessment for a
local improvement, upon the real estate ben
efited, is, for any cause, set aside by the
court, the property may be reassessed. Such
an assessment was made upon the property
of the appellants, and as to a part thereof the
assessment was set aside by the court on the
application of the owners, and as to the bal
ance the city- refunded to the owners the
amount paid by them on such assessment.
The refund was made and accepted upon the
mutual understanding of both parties that the
assessment was void. Held, In proceedings
for a reassessment of such property, that the
fact that the original assessment was not
lormaliy set aside by the court as to the whole
property was not a defense as to such own
Second—The amendment to the constitution
prohibiting special legislation and providing
that general laws shall be uniform in their
operation, does not impart to general laws,
touching any one of the subjects as to which
special legislation Is prohibited, a repealing
. effect that they would not have without It, or
changing existing rules of statutory construc
tion as to repeal by implication, or render
such general laws Invalid unless they repeal
all prior special laws relating to the same
subject. Whether such special laws shall be
repealed, and if so, when and how, are mat
ters left by the amendment to the discretion
of the legislature.
Third—Held, accordingly, that the special
provisions of the charter of the city of St.
Paul, providing the method of making and
collecting reassessments, were not repealed by
chapter 206, General Laws 1893.
Judgment affirmed. —Start, C. J.

lt necessary so to do to enable the court to
do Justice and prevent one citizen from ob
taining an Inequitable advantage of another.
Third—The defendant Ireland made to his
wife, the defendant Eliza S., a deed of land
in North Dakota, which was fraudulent as
to his creditors, and afterwards made an
assignment for the benefit of his creditors
under the insolvency laws of this state to
the plaintiff. The defendant bank, a creditor,
became a party to the insolvency proceedings,
proved Its entire debt against the Insolvent
in such proceedings, and still asserts all the
rights of a creditor therein; lt requested the
plaintiff to commence an action as such as
signee ln the courts of North Dakota against
Ireland and wife to recover the land as a
part of the trust estate, which he did; after
wards lt commenced an action ln such courts
in its own name and for its exclusive benefit
against the same parties to subject the land
to the payment of the greater part of. its debt
so proved under the assignment. All the
parties to this action are citizens of this
state, and it does not appear that there are
any non-resident creditors of the insolvent.
Held, distinguishing Jenks vs. Ludden, 34
Minn. 482, that the trial court did not err
in directing the wife of the Insolvent to con
vey the land to the plaintiff as such assignee
and enjoining the bank from further prose
cuting Its suit. Order affirmed.
—Start, C. J.
D. C. Rule, respondent, vs. The Omega
Stove and Grate Company et al., defend
ants; L. F. Hubbard, appellant.
Syllabus: First —A creditor of an insolvent
foreign corporation may maintain in this
state against its stockholders of whom the
court has jurisdiction an action ln the nature
of a creditor's bill to obtain payment of his
claim aga'nst such corporation from the un
paid balances of subscriptions by such stock
holders to its capital stock. The remedy
provided by sections 2,600, 2,601 and 2,602 of
the General Statutes of 1894 is not applicable
where it is sought to reach such unpaid sub
scriptions to the stock of a foreign corpora
tion. Bank vs. Mining Company, 42 Minn.,
327, commented on.
Second—Such creditor must flrst obtain
judgment against the corporation and have
execution returned unsatisfied in the state
where he brings his action to enforce such
stockholders' subscription, or he must show
that it was impossible so to do.
Third—The complaint in this action alleges
that the plaintiff is a creditor of an Ohio
corporation, that he has obtained judgment
against the corporation in the courts of that
state; that execution has been returned
wholly unsatisfied, that the corporation has
ceased to do business, has disposed of all
of its assets, and has now no property. Held,
that the complaint shows that it is practically
Impossible to obtain a personal Judgment
against the corporation ln this state. Order
affirmed. —Start, C. J.

Assembly May Pass the Ordinance
Despite It Today.
The assembly will meet at 11 a. m. today
and the board of aldermen at 7:30 p. m. The
Important matters to be acted upon by the
assembly are the mayor's veto of the resolu
tion requesting the street railway company
to extend Its loop from Robert street to
Broadway, and a proposition from the owners
of property abutting on a portion of Summit
avenue in Desnoyer park, to pay the city of
St. Paul $400 for vacating Its right of way
over this part of the avenue, in order to ren
der the proposed condemnation proceedings
on the part of the United States government
The board of aldermen, at Its last meeting,
passed the loop resolution over the mayor's
veto, and the jobbers and others who want
the loop extended to Broadway say that the
assembly will do likewise. This is doubtful,
however, as six votes are required, and there

PROF. WM. HAVES' LATEST BULLE

FORAGE AND GRAIN CROPS.
CROSS ROTATION, SMUT, "WEEDS,
TILLAGE AND THE WEATHER
WHEAT KERNELS ARE TRAINED
So That the Output Per Acre Is In
creased From Twenty-One to
Prof. Willet M. Hayes, of the state ex
perimental farm, is making Minnesota farm
ers acquainted with the work being done
there by means of bulletins which become
more valuable with every passing season.
Tbe experiments which Prof. Hayes, as state
farmer, has under way will in some instances
cover a long series of years. Naturally each
succeeding season of growth enables him to
add something to the knowledge of crops and
methods of sowing and cultivation possessed
by farmers. His. latest bulletin treats of for
age and grain crops, cross rotation experi
ments, smut in wheat, three annual weeds,
tillage experiments, and closes with some
elaborate meterological records.
Corn tests have developed, he says, several
very promising varieties of dent corn, which
arc especially adapted for the southern coun
ties of Minnesota. Not much of the seed
has bee*n produced as yet, but lt will not be
long before the station will have sufficient for
distribution. The method at present followed
in distributing is to select several of the
most careful farmers in the state. To them
the developed seed is sent, and after harvest
the station buys back enough to pay them
for their trouble, care and labor. Every year
thus helps to spread the good seed through
the state more generally. Prof. Hayes now
has about 300 bushels of most excellent seed
ccrn on hand which farmers can secure for
$1 per bushel, to cover the cost of raising
and saving. The bulletin now under consid
eration contains much Information that will
prove very useful to farmers who raise corn.
It gives the results of various depths of
plowing, from four to eight Inches, and the
professor's conclusions thereon.
Elaborate and carefully prepared tables are
given, covering long-continued tests of Im
proved varieties of wheat. Out of twenty-two
selected varieties eight have been picked for
continued experiments. Results will be pub
lished from time to time. Sample instances
of increase are noted, as, for Instance, In one
experiment the parent sample yielded only 21.6
bushels per acre, while the improved progeny
produced 31.9 bushels. Other similar increases
are noted, but the professor is careful to say
that he does not believe the ratio can be per
manently retained. "But," he continued,
"we feel safe in the hope that a small ma
terial increase in the yield of our Northwest
ern hard wheats may result; and that In like
manner our work In breeding oats, barley,
field peas, timothy, clover and other field
crops may cause the thorough husbandman to
harvest more from his fields. "When placed on
poorer soil it is a question whether they will
yield more than the parental varieties, and we'
await with interest their trial under the dif
ferent conditions of our three or four experi
Prof. Hayes' observations on experiments to
Improve the varieties of wheat will be inter
esting reading: "We are using as loundation
stocks mainly superior J^rd wheats, and,
while we must choose wheats of high quality,
so as to increase rather than decrease the
fame of the Northwest for T>Jo. 1 hard grades,
we keep constantly in mir«K.he fact that the
farmer gets more money per acre out of his
crop of wheal because of a' ftw bushels more
yield per acre even if he suffers a loss of
Of cross rotation of crops, the bulletin says:
studying each crop we find that follow
ing peas; mangies gave its best yield; corn
gave, its fourth best yiei-1, and wheat, pota
toes and peas gave their next to poorest
Following mangels; no crops gave their
best yields, three, corn, wheat and potatoes
gave their next to best yields; flax and
mangels gave their third best yields and
peas gave its poorest yield.
Following potatoes; wheat and flax gave
their best yields; mangels and peas gave
their second best yield; corn gave its third
best, and potatoes gave its fourth best yield.
Following flax; flax and peas gave their
next to poorest yields; and corn, wheat,
potatoes and mangels gave their poorest
Following wheat; potatoes and peas gave
their third best yields; wheat gave its fourth
best yield; corn and mangels gave their fifth
best yields; and flax its poorest yield.
Following corn; three crops, corn, pota
toes and peas gave their best yields; wheat
gave its third best yield; and flax and
mangels gave their fourth best yields.
The hoed crops, corn, potatoes and mangels
had an especially, good effect in preparing the
land for other crops. Flax, wheat and even
the field peas did not prepare the land well
for the other crops, flax and wheat especially
doing poorly after flax and wheat
The one weed which Prof. Hayes thinks
does more than., all the .others combined to
sap Minnesota soils of moisture ls foxtail,
commonly called pigeongrass. It will grow
so abundantly qn poorly managed farms as
to reduce materially the yield of crops and
the value of the land. The man who rotates
his crops so as to keep this weed at a mini
mum has few other weeds to contend with.

What Some of 1.0r.-i n's Workers
Want in Return.
John Harris, one of the managers of Dor
an's campaign, yesterday announced that he
is a candidate for chief of detectives. He in
timates, too, that if he cannot get that he
doesn't want anything.
Maj. Libbey's friends are organizing to
push him into Chief Clark's place, if possi
ble. George Irish is smiling serenely, but
when tackled regarding his chances for the
place he had nothing at all to say. Capt.
Bean is in the same position. No man feels
sure enough of his ground to even publicly
announce his candidacy. M. N. Goss, who
marshaled the hosts that serenaded Doran
Thursday evening, is booked for something.
It Is just possible he has a friendly eye on
the place John Harris wants.
Another man whose name has been men
tioned in connection with the position of
chief of detectives, is W. H. Griffin. "Griff,"
or "Red," as he is called by his friends, did
yoeman service for Doran, and, it is said,
expects something in return. What that
something will be remains to be seen.
George Warren has set his mind on being
commissioner of public works. He reckons,
whether rightly or wrongly, that the man
who holds that office will be almost as pow
erful as the mayor himself.
Friends of John Wagener are already talk
ing of running him for county treasurer in
the fall. They point to the very small plu
rality for Hors*-, and say with truth that
many Republicans - will support Wagener
against ElmuncE The latter will have no
opposition for a a-enomiation. Men who might
otherwise go against him have a wholesome
fear of the triumphant Scandinavians, but
they would quietly and effectively support I
FEATS. IN HYPNOTISM.
Perry Give- _. Private Exhibition of
Perry, the hypnotist, visited the St. Paul j
Press club yesterday afternoon, and, in the
presence of a dozen or more physicians and j
several newspaper men, he performed a I
number of hypnotic feats. Mr. Perry made :
a few remarks by way of introducing his ;
performance. He spoke of the progress of
hypnotism as a scientific, medical study,
showing that it has been reduced" from vul
gar clap-trap to a scientific proposition.
Mr. Perry then called up a young man
and put him to sleep in various ways. He
waved his finger before the subject's eyes,
and he slept: he moved a bright coin to and
fro, and the young man went to sleep again,
and finally Mr. Perry made him sleep by
compressing one of the veins of the throat
and imparting a rotary motion to the head.
Another young man was then called upon,
and plunged into so profound a sleep that
a hypodermic needle thrust Into the fleshy
portion of his arm did not disturb his slum
Mr. Perry's most Interesting experiment
consisted In putting to sleep the flrst young
man while he stood upright. IJe became per
fectly rigid, and was then placed upon the
backs -of two chairs, about four feet apart.
The pulse quickly rose to 120 beats per min
ute and his respiration fell to 10. His body
remained so rigid that Perry, though weigh
ing 160 pounds, stood upon the thighs of the
subject, without bending or moving them in
Perry will be seen at the Grand opera
house next week.
