COMO PARK APPROACHES.
Pinna for Their Beantlflentlon Are
The joint council committee appoint
ed to consider the matter of providing
.suitable approaches and driveways to
Como park, met yesterday and con
ferred with President Wheelcc-k, ot
the park board. The committee com
prises Assemblymen Klrke, Crair and
Krahmer and Aid. Larsen, Kaidunski
Mr. Wheelock explained the situa
tion to the committee. The question
of providing an approach or driveway
to Como park from St. Anthony hill
was not a difficult one. Mr. Wheelock
pointed out that Lexington avenue,
from Summit avenue to Como park,
would afford an admirable ornamented
driveway after widening the street to
140 feet. A number of owners of the
abutting property on Lexington ave
nue, had, so Mr. Wheelock said, agreed
to donate enough property to secure
the desired width.
Then followed a general discussion
of the best method of securing ap
proaches to Como park from lower
town. Assemblyman Kirke suggested
that the street car tracks on Como
avenue be removed and the line laid
and operated on Edmund street, from
Rice street to Dale street; thence north
erly on Dale to Front street, and
thence out Front street to Chatsworth.
a? at present. It was also suggested
that street car tracks be laid on Dale
street, from Grand avenue northward
to Edmund street, thus giving the res
idents on the hill direct street car con
nection with Como park. Some ques
tion was raised whether the council
could compel the street railway com
pany to remove Its tracks from Como
avenue. The committee adjourned
without action, pursuant to the under
standing that, in company with the
memhers of the board, the committee
would look over the land.

PRE THE CITY PAY
KXPKNSES OP REMOVING AND RE
PLACING DESKS IN THE
FOR THE LATE ENCAMPMENT.
COLOSSUS M'CAiRDY STRADDLES
THE ARYSS OF TREASURY SAFE
GUARDS WITH DRY FEET.
HE HAS TO PAY IT ANYWAY,
Bat Rather as City Comptroller
Than as a Patriot and Encamp.
City Comptroller McCardy discovered
about a month ago that neither he nor
the administration nor the Grand Army
committee could bulldoze the school
board. He will have occasion to again
realize this fact, and so will the' G. A.
R. executive committee.
It appears that the laborers employed
by the G. A. R. executive committee to
remove the desks from the school
buildings for the accommodation of the
G. A. R. veterans and to replace the
desks after the encampment, have not
received one cent for their work thus
far. The laborers, some twenty ln
number, undertook the work, relying
Implicitly upon the promise of the G.
A. R. executive committee that they
would be only compensated after the
work had been performed. Nearly
three weeks have elapsed and not a
penny have the men received. All of
them are ln great need of the money
due them, and one or two who owe
rent, have been threatened with ejec
tion from their homes.
This condition of affairs was called
to the attention of Gen. E. C. Mason,
the chairman of the committee, yester
day, and as a result Gen. Mason haa
called a special meeting of the com
mittee to be held today.
In the meantime Comptroller Mc-
Cardy thoroughly understands the sit
uation. From this city and G. A. K.
official first came the suggestion that
the expense of preparing the schoul
buildings for occupancy by the G. A. R.
veterans, might be paid out of the
"school rental and repair fund." The
department commander of the Minne
sota G. A. R. In his capacity of city
comptroller, had discovered this fund
In the city treasury—a fund that the
school board had never heard of before.
But the school board did not propose
to expend this fund Illegally, ln spite
of the fact that the common councl,
acting upon Comptroller McCardy's
suggestion, had adopted a resolution
appropriating $1,500 of the $5,503.80 then
in the "rental and repair fund."
President Abbott, representing the
school board, notified the mayor and
city comptroller that he would not
draw on the fund for money with
which to prepare the school buildings
for the veterans. It was enough for
the school board to grant the free use
of the school buildings for such a pur
pose, without expecting the board to
draw on the school fund for money to
pay the expenses. Furthermore, un
der the city charter, as Dr. Abbott
ponlted out, the school board could not
expend any part of the school funds
for other than school purposes. The
upshot of lt all was that the school
board refused to draw the money, and
the members thereof declare that the
G. A. R. committee agreed to bear the
But notwithstanding th* position
taken by President Abbott, the mayor
and comptroller signed an order on the
city treasurer ln favor of E. J. Abbott
as president of the school board for the
sum of $1,500, payable out of the
"school repair and rental fund." This
has been ln the city clerk's office
awaiting the signature of Dr. Abbott
It was noted at the meeting of the
assembly committee on streets last
Wednesday afternoon, that Comptroller
McCardy, in answer to Dr. Abbott's
Inquiry as to the amount of money in
the rental and repair fund, replied,
"About $3,500." Dr. Abbott remarked
that according to the last report the
fund amounted to over $5,000. To this
Mr. McCardy made the Indefinite re
joinder that the fund had been de
creased by the council, which h?ad
made a draft upon It. Dr. Abbott soon
after left the room, and then, in reply
to a question from Assemblyman
Craig, Mr. McCardy said that the de
crease ln the fund from $5,000 to $3,500
was due to an order for $1,500, payable
to President Abbott, which order, how
ever, so Mr. McCardy said, might nev
er be signed by Dr. Abbott.
But upon inquiry at the office of the
city treasurer yesterday, the accounts
of that official showed the amount of
money in the school rental and repair
fund to be $5,503.80, less a cash with
drawal of $442.10, leaving a balance on
hand of $5,061.70.
The comptroller Anally rid himself
of his trouble, however. Last night,
in accordance with his assurance given
to the assembly committee on ways
and means, he sent the following com
munication to the assembly:
"I have the honor to recommend as
follows: First, that Warrant No. 24,
--814 for $1,500 in favor of the president
of the board of school inspectors, same
having been drawn on the school ren
tal and repair fund, be canceled.
"Second— lncluding the above $1,500
there Is $5,061.70 to the credit of the
school rental and repair fund, and I
recommend that this account be closed
and the amount credited to the school
fund. There is nothing gained by
keeping such an account as the school
rental and repair fund."
Thus the money that the comptroller
originally suggested might be expend
ed in removing the school desks to
make room for the G. A. R. venerans,
ls gradually finding Its way to the
bosom of the school fund where lt al

SO SAY BEREAVED PARENTS.
CORONER WHITCOMB WILL HOLD
AN INaCEST TO CLEAR IP THE
DONNELLY IS INCREDULOUS.
Believes That the Last Story Is the
Offspring- ot an Overwrought
Thomas Sohifsky, of Mounds View,
accompanied by his wife, came to St.
Paul yesterday and had a consultation
with County Attorney Butler and Coro
ner Whitcomb relative to the death of
their son, Albert Schifsky, which oc
curred last Sunday afternoon at Turtle
lake. The parents of the dead youth
stated to the officials that Henry Lepah,
fifteen years old, who was with young
Schifsky at the time he was killed,
had confessed to them that he had fired
the shot which resulted in Schifsky's
death. It had been supposed up to i
We dnesday afternoon that S hifsky had
been killed by the accidental discharge
of a shotgun, which he had laid down
In the boat, and which had In some
manner been accidentally discharged.
Young Schifsky and Lepah went out
on the lake Sunday afternoon ln a
row boat with the purpose of hunting.
Schifsky had a double barreled shot
gun and Lepah an old muzzle-loading
musket. They had been gone about
two hours when a number of the mem
bers of the Laurel Bicycle dub, who
were enjoying an outing at the lake,
wtre attracted to the shore of the lake
by loud cries made by Lepah. Joseph
Moshofsky Jr., of 421 Rice street, and
Charles Staus, of 55 Carroll street, Who
were the nearest to the boat, found
on reaching the craft the dead body of
Schifsky lying in the bottom of the
boat, while at the end sat Lepah, who
was so terrified that he could not speak.
Schifsky's head had been literally blown
to pieces, and the body presented a
sickening sight. The story as told by
Lf pah was to the effect that Schifsky,
while reachting out of the boat to se
cure a mud hen which one of the twain
had shot. In some way discharged his
gun and the charge had struck him In
the head. Coroner Whitcomb was noti
fied and after hearing the story of
Ltpah, decided an Inquest was not
necessary. There were no witnesses
to the shooting except Lepah, and as
the lads had been friends and com
psndons, his story of the accident was
taken to be correct The funeral of
Schifsky took place Tuesday and the
remains were brought to this city and
interred ln Calvary cemetery.
Yesterday according to the statements
of Thomas Schifsky to the county offi
cials, Lepah admitted under a series of
questions put to him by the dead boy's
parents, that the shot which caused
their son's death had been fired by
him, but that the shooting was acci
dental. After a consultation at the
office of the county attorney between
Mr. Butler and Coroner Whitcomb, lt
was decided that a coroner's inquest I
would be necessary in order to clear I
up the matter and it ls expected the
investigation will be held this morn
ing. A coroner's jury will be empaneled
this morning and the body of Schifsky
will be exhumed long enough to have
the jury duly sworn. The taking of
testimony will possibly be postponed
to another date, although last evening
this had not been settled.
The parents of the dead boy said '
there was no doubt in their mind that
the shooting of their son by Lepah was
accidental. They had no reason to
dcubt the story first told by Lepah,
but after the funeral, which was not
attended by Lepah, they engaged the
companion of their son in conversation,
and he finally broke down and con
fessed that it was he that discharged
the weapon which caused his friend's
death. The lads were neighbors and
the best of friends and Sunday morn
ing attended church together.
Assistant County Attorney Donnelly,
seen last evening, said he was In doubt
as to whether Lepah had done the
shooting. From what he had heard
about the case, It did not seem pos
sible that Lepah could have fired the
shot, If his statement as to his position
in the boat at the time was as he
stated. Lepah has not been arrested
and will not be taken In custody until
after the coroner's jury return a ver
HAS A GOOD GRIST.
Supreme Calendar for the Term. Is
The calendar for the September term
of the supreme court was sent to the
printers yesterday. There are 297 cases
on the tab, among the most Important
being that of Steenerson vs. the Great
Northern Railway company et al.; the
board of public works of the city of St.
Paul against John Copeland, commis
sioner of public works; the Hastings-
Anoka insane asylum site matter; state
of Minnesota vs. Lowe.
In the Steenerson case, complaint
was lodged with the board of railroad
commissioners that the freight rates
from points in Northern Minnesota
were excessive and an order was asked
for a reduction of the same. The
Northern Pacific and the Omaha roads
asked to be allowed to intervene but
the request was denied. The board
then ordered certain rates. The North
ern Pacific appealed.
A very Important matter will be the
hearing to test the constitutionality of
the law creating the commissioner of
public works ln St. Paul. The old
board of public works contends that
the law is In the nature of special leg
islation and therefore unconstitutional.
The supreme court will be called upon
