RAISES A NOVEL QUESTION.
Case Without Precedent Heard by
The case of L. N. C. Washington
against J. C. Mathews, an action to
set aside the sale of certain real prop
erty under execution, which was before
Judge Koliy yesterday, bids fair to
raise a novel question, concerning
which there appears to be no statutory
proviso. In 1892 an execution of judg
-fnent was obtained by the defendant
against certain real property owned by
the plaintiff. This was while R. T.
O'Connor was clerk of the courts. But
for some unknown reason the execution
did not reach the hands of the sheriff
until 1895, when the property was sold.
The claim is set forth by the plaintiff
that by reason of ' the lapse of time,
the execution lost its vitality, and
further, that it was void when the sale
of the property was made for the rea
son that it was not signed when trans
fetred to the sheriff by the clerk of
courts who was in office at the time
the execution was secured. If the
claims of the plaintiff are found to be
correct, the finding in the case would
undoubtedly be set forth as a prece
dent in case it should happen that an
execution should be obtained two or
three days before the expiration of the
term of offlce of a clerk of the courts
and should be transferred to the
sheriff for sale by his successor. Judge
Kelly took the matter under advise

AS GEORGE SEES IT
MINE OWNER HEARST'S POLITICAL
PROPHET PAYS A VISIT TO
THE JINGLE OF FREE SILVER
SOUNDS INCESSANTLY IN HIS PARS
AND IS ECHOED THROUGH HIS
RITOGET OF POLITICAL NEWS.
Announcement of the Sound Money-
Democratic Speakers Who Are
Coming to This State.
Henry George, widely known as the
author of social and economic reforms,
exponent of free coinage and political
"prophet-in-chief for the New York
Journal, was In the city yesterday on
a mission for his paper. Mr. George
has been traveling in the middle and
Western states for several weeks, and
everywhere he has found Bryan senti
ment so strong that his reports, tele
graphed to the Journal, have Invari
ably been printed on the first, oae-e of
Millionaire Mine Owner Hearst's paper
under the most terrifying of scare
heads. Like other special commis
sioners who are sent to report certain
information, Mr. George nas apparent
ly Interviewed only the friends of the
cause he espouses, for he has written
I only the most encouraging news, and
has had some great scoops on facts,
if his estimates of the political situa-.
tion in some parts of the West be true.
Mr. Gecrge arrived in St. Paul yes
terday morning, accompanied by his
son, Henry Jr., of Cleveland. They
breakfasted at the Ryan, and later
called at Democratic headquarters in
the Globe building. In the absence
of Chairman Rosing, who accompanied
the Bryan party to Duluth, Gen. Pope,
Harry Caldwell and others of the com
mittee staff entertained the visitors.
Mr. George wanted nothing but facts
in relation to the political situation in
Minnesota, and he wanted those facts
to please the readers of his paper and
the silver mine owner who publishes
it. He went to the right place for in
formation of that character, for Gen.
Pope and every one else connected
with the Bryan-Lind ticket has con
fidence in its success in November. Mr.
George spent some time at the head
quarters and expressed himself as
hopeful of the result in Minnesota at
the close of the interview.
"You must excuse me if I decline an
interview," said Mr. George to a re
porter for the Globe. "I am In the
newspaper business myself, you know,
and such information as I obtain be
longs to my employer. I am satisfied
with what I have learned here today,
and will leave this evening, probabiy
for a trip through Wisconsin."
It is understood that Mr. George
told his Minnesota friends news of a
cheering character. He told them of
his trip through Ohio and said that so
far as he could learn sentiment in
clines to Bryan. Unorganized labor and
idle workmen, of whom there are
thousands in that state, will vote for
Bryan. Organized and employed labor,
too. said Mr. George, will cast a re
latively large vote for Bryan, and. ac
cording to the reports of persons who
have most closely watched the situa
tion, Mr. McKinley will be beaten in
his own state.
Mr. George has gone on record as
having faith in the election of Altgeld,
and Bryan's success in Illinois, and he
repeated his statement to his hearers
yesterday. The cities, he believed, are
mainly Republican, but the farmers
will make a strong showing for Bryan
and the state Democratic ticket. The
proportion of Republican to Democratic
deserters, he estimates at about three
te> one, in favor of the free silver ticket.
Mr. George told an interesting story
of the method adopted by railroad
magnates to win votes from free sil
ver. The men resisted the organization
of McKinley clubs in their ranks, and
wore the McKinley buttons under pro
test, believing they were being coerced
against their own will and judgment
Recently, however, Mr. George said
old Democrats among the railroad men
have been found coming out for Mc-
Kinley and endeavoring to influence
their fellows In such a way as to show
they were not merely trying to please
their employers, but were really in
earnest. The explanation of this
change, according to Mr. George, was
that the railroad managers had become
conscious that the attempt to get votes
by fear was a mistake and a new deal
was attempted, and chosen men were
called in and talked to of the great
loss that would fall upon the company
should the gold, with which the in
terest on its bonds must be met, go to
a premium, and the consequent con
cern that it had in the defeat of free
silver. It was found, said Mr. George,
that the men could be approached in
that way. and the result has been hurt
ful to the silver cause, as the men
were Jed to believe that free coinage
would hurt their employers and its ill
effects react upon themselves But
while this might effect Bryan's vote it
would have very little effect upon
Altgeld's chances of election.
* • *
John L. Gibbs, Republican candidate
for lieutenant governor; S. P. Jennison
and other old time politicians of the
Republican faith, sat ln the lobby of
the Merchants yesterday afternoon' and
talked of McKinley and Bryan and
the coming election. Gen. Jennison
asked most of the questions, but told
his friends that the First district would
be in line for McKinley. Mr. Gibbs
said that he believed the Republican
majority in the state would be enor
mous. In his opinion the Republicans
are gaining rapidly everyday. Bryan
had not made many friends and few
converts, while the sound money speak
ers are being received with great
warmth all over the state.

Accompanying the report of the com
mittee on license, recommending the
issuing of six saloon licens.es to the
Hamm Brewing company, was a pro
test from Rev. David Morgan, object
ing to the issuing of the licenses. Mr.
Morgan based his protest on his con
struction of the law regulating the
conduct of the liquor traffic, which is
that liquor licenses * cannot be issued
to a company or corporation, but only
to a person, as a company would not.
in his opinion, be subject to indict
ment, trial or punishment for a viola
tion of the law as an individual would.
The board merely placed the protest
Aid. Bigelow thereupon assured the
board that the corporation attorney
had advised the committee to go ahead.
The board then voted to issue the
licenses, notwithstanding Rev. Mor
Aid. Kaldunski Introduced a resolu
tion requesting the city comptroller to
include in the estimate of expenditures
for the year 1897, the sum of $7,700 for
the purpose of constructing a sewer
commencing at Como avenue and
Gaultier street, thence running north
to Sycamore street, thence on Syca- ,
more street to Rice street, the same
being necessary to secure an outlet for
the sewer on Como avenue, and the
expense of which cannot be assessed
against any property benefitted.
The resolution was referred to the
committee on streets.
Aid. Kaldunski also offered a resolu
tion directing the street railway com
pany to run its cars every twenty
minutes on the Como avenue line. The
alderman said that the company was
now giving only a half hour service
on the Como avenue line. The resolu
tion was referred to the committee on
The bill of Kenny Bros, for $80 for
the rent of a lot in the Third ward for
election purposes in 1890 and 1892, was
accompanied by a recommendation
from the committee on claims that only
$20 be allowed. The bill was thus
amended and then referred to the city
comptroller for audit.
The committee on ways and means
returned without recommendation the
proposed contract with George Mc-
Creary for equipping the Van Buren
school with a heating and ventilating
apparatus. Aid. Bigelow explained that
the committee had been reliably in
formed that the contract bid of $4,991
was about $600 too high. The contract
was accordingly referred back to the
committee on ways and means for
The garbage bill of Fielding & Shep
ley. for the month of September, was
allowed on recommendation of the com
mittee on ways and means.
The committee on ways and means
recommended the adoption of a reso
lution authorizing all the banks in the
city, except the First and Second Na
tional banks, which did not submit
bids for city deposits, to receive de
posits of city funds on which they are
to pay two per cent interest per year
on the monthly balances. The reso
lution was adopted. The deposit in
any bank must not exceed half the
amount of its bond.
A communication was received from
the trades and labor assembly inclosing
a resolution adopted by that body de
claring that Fransen & Peterson, the
lowest bidders on the contract for erect
ing the school building in the Eighth
ward, employed cheap labor and non
resident men at that. The resolution
requests the common council not to
award this firm the contract The com
munication was placed on file and will
receive attention when the council con
siders the bids which have been refer
red to it by the mayor and the presi
dent of the school board. The total
amount available for tbe new school
building is $15,000, while the lowest
bids for construction, heating and
plumbing aggregate over $16,000.

Congregational Wofmen's Union
Holds a Long Session.
An all day meeting of the St! Paul
Congregational Women's Home Mis
sionary union, was held at the St. An
thony Park Congregational church yes
terday. The most important business
of the day was the appointment and re
ports of the nominating committee on
the officers for the coming year. The
ladies on the committee were- The
Mrs. R. W. Nichols, W. H. Howard
and W, F. Myron, ; of the Paciflc church.
Their report, which was adopted unani
mously, was as follow*:

for the. May meeting, Mr* Weatfcerby and
Mrs. Risser, of St. Anthony Park.
Papers of interest, on home mission
ary topics were read during the day by
members of the union. Mrs. Nichols'
address, which came first on the pro
gramme, dealt with the work of the
Minnesota missions and, was. of great
interest. Perhaps the most original
paper of the day was prepared by Miss
Haines who has spent some time in
the South where she was engaged in
teaching colored people at Franklin,
Term. Her experience in the sunny
land, and the charming little jubilee
songs with which she illustrated hei
article, were listened to with great en
joyment. Her appeal to the union foi
cemfonters— of the material kind— to be
sent to Fiske, Term.,. Will be consider
ed in the future. The last paper by
Mrs. Risser on the work of the Ameri
can Home Missionary association, was
exhaustive and of. interest to workers.
It was decided yesterday that a mis
sionary box should be sent to a mission
school in New Mexico, and the ladies in
charge were requested to hand in theli
contributions not later than Now 10.
Clothes, toys — as the box is intended
for Christmas— books, everything ex
cept tracts, were desired. The box will
be in charge of the Plymouth church
ladies, assisted by one lady from each
church represented in the union. A
vote of thanks waa tendered to Miss
Haines for her delightful songs and to
the Park church ladies for their hospi
tality. Lunch was. served by the ladies
of the Park church at 12 o'clock, and
the meeting adjourned at 5.

PLEADS NOT GUILTY TO THE IN
DICTMENT FOUND AGAINST
DATE FOR TRIAL NOT FIXED.
HIS ATTORNEY MAY MAKE A DE
MURKER. TO THE COM
EIGHT OTHER PRISONERS PLEAD.
Grand Jury In at Work Inspecting
the Various County Insti
Rev. James C. Hull entered a plea
of not guilty to the indictment returned
against him by the grrand jury charg
ing him with attempting to poisoiV his
Wife, before Judge Brill yesterday af
ternoon, when all of the prisoners
against whom bills were found were
arraigned for pleading. There was
something of defiance in the manner
and appearance of Hull as the formal
questions were put to him by the clerk
of the court, and in answer to the
query, "What say you to the charge in
this indictment, are you guilty or not
guilty?" he replied with firmness,
"I am not guilty."
Attorney F. L. Pierce, who appeared
for Hull, stated that his client had
entered the plea of not guilty with the
right reserved to later enter a demurrer
to the complaint, or to make such
motions as the law would allow. He
also asked for time in which to secure
certain affidavits, a request to which
the county attorney readily agreed.
The other prisoners arraigned were
Charles Williams, forgery in the second
degree; Thomas Marron, bigamy; John
Adler, murder in the second degree;
William Brendt, indecent assault;
Frank Ford, grand larceny ln the sec
ond degree; Henry B. White, assault
ln the first degree; Joseph S. Goddard,
indecent assault; George C. Moorman,
two indictments for forgery. Each of
the prisoners entered a plea of not
guilty. Goddard, Williams and Marron
Were unable to employ attorneys, and
Judge Brill appointed Attorneys
Schroll, Pierce and Fltzpatrick, re
spectively, to defend them.
The grand jury was yesterday en
gaged In its customary inspection of
the county institutions. It ls probable
that its labors will be concluded by
DENNIS RYAN WINS.
Courts Declare Hint Owner of Valu
able Mining: Properties.
The United States circuit court of ap
peals, in an opinion written by Judge
Thayer, yesterday handed down a de
cision affirming the order of the lower
court in the case of Dennis Ryan, plain
tiff in error, against James Staples, de
fendant in error to the circuit court for
the district of Colorado.
The suft was one ln ejectment to re
cover the following mining claims in
Custer county, Colorado, which at one
time sold for $60,000: Maine lode and
mill site, Triangle lode, Frank lode,
Georgia lode, Lookout mill site, Meneha
lode and Lookout lode. The circuit
court rendered a judgment in the trial
of the action ln favor of the plaintiff,
to reverse which the defendant sued
out a writ of error. Both parties
claimed title to the disputed property
under the Bassick Mining company, of
New York, which was the owner there
of on and prior to June 1, 1885.
The decision of the court, which ls
quite lengthy, reads in part as follows:
"It is conceded that the title acquired
by James Staples as a purchaser under
the judgment in favor of John T. Rad
cliff and William Radcliff. by virtue of
his having redeemed from the sale
mad* In the suit to foreclose the varl-
ous mechanics' liens, ls superior to the
title acquired by Dennis Ryan", under
the judgment in the attachment suit,
provided the judgment in the mechan
ics' Hen suit was not utterly void when
rendered for want of jurisdiction, and
provided further that the sale under
the Radcliff judgment was not inoper
ative to transfer the title to the prop
erty in controversy by reason of the
fact that the judgment in the lien suit
had been reversed before the sale to
Staples was made. These are the im
portant questions which deserve atten
"Was the judgment in the School
field suit void or simply erroneous and
voidable on appeal?
"If it was simply erroneous and not
void, did the reversal thereof on ap
peal prior to the sale under the execu
tion on the judgment in favor of the
Radcliffs have the effect of preventing
the later sale from transferring a title
to the property ln controversy."
MRS. INGALLS GOES FREE.
Termination of the Habeas Corpus
Mrs. Caroline M. Ingalls was not
committed to jail for refusing to obey
an order of Judge Brill's court yester
day, in that she had failed to produce
her grandchildren after having been
served with a writ of habeas corpus,
and further ordered to do so by the
court. On the contrary, the writ was
dismissed without prejudice.
In reaching the decision which led to
his action in the premises, Judge
Brill stated that he had never before
considered so strange a case and that
he was still of the opinion that the
whole truth in the matter had not been
brought out. The count was in no wise
satisfied with such a termination of
the habeas ccrps proceedings, but would
nevertheless discharge the respondent

and will put their capital in enterprises which
will create labor for the laborers we may

During the past quarter we have personally
visited fifty-nine cases. Of the forty-eight
cases referred to the associated charities for
investigation, twenty-two were city cases
™ t u ty t »,**** were aided b y this society.
Of the 121 young men who applied for aid
forty-four wire assisted in some way. Our
supplies are scant, we think on account of
so many schools and churches engaging In
the work of relief for the poor and soliciting
clothing and other supplies for that purpose.
A few special cases which are of interest
to us I hereby submit: One of our washer-
w ,°?? en J"°? k a notfon to Ko out at the opening
of the Red Lake reservation and take up land
for her boys. She asked advice and assist
ance, and we directed her to a railway official
and she was given a pass. Then she needed
money to prove up and we made her a loan
from our loaning fund, which she carried
with her, and the rest of the story I need
not take your time to relate, as I presume
you all read of Jennie Cunningham, the St.
Paul woman who secured first place in the
vast throng of men and obtained her home
stead. Since that time she has paid $"16.50
her loan In full.
Through the generosity of the railway offi
cials we have helped quite a number of
sick poor to friends ln distant towns and
to the Hot Springs. One of the most inter
esting cases was an aged doctor, eighty-four
years old. He was brought to us as a sub
ject for the poor house, as his relations were
dead and his business (a drug store) was
burned out, and, being to old to practice he
was sheltered by a poor colored boy. whom
he had brought up. We set to work to
help out this aged, educated man, and found
that he was formerly a member of two lead
ing secret roclettes. It was but a few days
when a nice comfortable room was provided
by us, and a fund created by those societies
for the care of the old gentleman.
Our industrial school opened last Saturday
