F. D. SARGENT'S RESIDENCE
PICKED Ol'T FOR A VISIT «V
SOME BOLD NIGHT
WERE HEARD BY MRS. SARGENT.
They Took a Diamond Stnd, Gold
Watch and Some Cash— Believed
to Be Professionals.
A couple of individuals whom the
police speak of as "prowlers" tiptoed
through the residence of F. D. Sargent
at 825 Dayton avenue early yesterday
morning. As a result of their visit Mr.
Sargent has quit, for the time being,
wearing a two-carat diamond stud in
his shirt front and he now tells time
by an open-faced white watch, instead
of a hunting case gold one with his
Initials engraved on the outside case.
About 3 o'clock yesterday morning
Mis. Sargent was awakened by a noise
as if some one was moving about the
bed room. She listened intently a mo
ment and then heard a sound which
she afterward learned was that made
by the individual who was screwing
her husband's diamond stud from his
shirt front. She nudged her husband
slightly with her elbow, but as he had
at various times been awakened by the
same process and always with the
same purpose in view, namely to get
up and see what it was that made the
noif*e in the house, he did not pay much
attentloi\to the occurrence. Mrs. Sar
gi at did not attempt to awaken her
husband after the first nudge for she
was so badly frightened that she
couldn't, if she had wanted to, and be
side she reasoned it out in a second
that if she did the first thing her hus
band would do would be to get up and
grapple with the bur-Axr. Thoughts of
how the thief would puil a revolver and
possibly shoot all hands, flashed
through her mind. She held her breath
and listened to her heart beating, !
Which she was certain could be heard
not only by the burglar, but by the
other occupants of the house. A few
seconds later she saw the form of the
man vanish through the doorway and
as soon as he had gone from the room

she aroused her husband. Mr. Sargent,
as soon as he realized the condition of
affairs, jumped out of bed and hustled
after the thief. As he started down the
fiont stairs he heard the thief making
through the dining room and out
through the kitchen^door, which the
burglar or his pal had left open in case
he should need a quick gateway. By
the time Mr. Sargent reached the open
kitchen door everything was quiet and
there was no sign of anyone about the
locality; Investigation showed that his
pants and vest had been taken out in
the back yard and the pocket had been
rifled of his watch and $16 in cash
which were in them.
The thieves gained entrance to the
house by prying up a rear window. An
occupant of a house on Fisk street,
which commands a view of the rear
of Mr. Sargent's house, told the victim
of the robbery that she saw two men
examining the back part of the house
late Monday night but the thought did
not occur to her at the time that the
men were burglars. The burglars did
not ransack the house, and so far as
could be judged nothing else was tak
en except the stud, watch and cash.
Mr. Sargent now intends to get a few
revolvers and a couple of dogs, with
the idea that if the "prowlers" call
again he will be prepared both against
arid for them.
From the manner in which the work
was done the detectives are of the
opinion that the thieves are profession

Grand Avenne Street Car Patrons
Discnsts a Loop.
Patrons of the Grand Avenue street
car line held a meeting at Grand and
Oakland avenues last night. Fred In
gersoll acted as chairman and V. J.
Rothschild as secretary. It took but
a moment to pass a resolution to the
Resolved, That the patrons of the Grand
avenue line are opposed to the contemplated
change of the present loop to Broadway so
for as the Grand avenue line is concerned.
This having been adopted about an
hour and a half was spent ln discuss
ing routes which the line should take,
providing the new loop ordinance went
into effect. Nearly every one of the
gentlemen present had a route for the
car line. G. V. Bacon wanted the
wholesale district considered and sug
gested that as the cable line was soon
to be changed to an electric it would
be the correct thing to have the line
run down Fourth street to Sibley and
I on that street to the union depot. As
semblyman Kirke thought if there was
to be a change in the present loop, and
it looked that way, the best plan
would be to have the Grand avenue
cars run down Fifth street, over Jack
son and up Seventh.
The discussion brought out the
statement that the street railway peo
ple thought well of. a belt line to run
from the union depot to Fifth street.
! down Fifth to Broadway, on Broad
way to Eighth, on Eighth to Sibley
and on Sibley to the union depot. It
was argued that with this line in
operation and cars running every two
| minutes, there would be no need of a
Broadway loop, and the wholesale dis
trict and all the lines in the city could
be reached. The following resolution
was finally passed:
Resolved, That the present route of the
Grand avenue line is unsatisfactory. That It is
the sentiment of this meeting that at the
earliest date possible the Grand avenue line
have a direct line to the union depot, re
turning via Fifth or Seventh street. That if
this cannot be done a belt line ba constructed
and operated making conections with the
union depot and all other lines.
Assemblyman Kirke stated that ln his opin
ion the only chance to retain the present
loop was to ha^-e the question of a belt line
such as outlined above agitated.
LECTIRED OS MEXICO.
Renu Campbell Entertained a Largre
Audience That Way.
The rooms' of the Commercial club
were filled last evening with a large
and select audience, consisting of
friends and members of the club, and
a big attendance from Fort Snelling
and the army building of this city. A
lecture on Mexico, by Reau Campbell,
i of Chicago, the traveler and explorer
; of that country, was the object of the
: gathering. Mr. Campbell illustrated
I his lecture by two hundred stereoptl
con views, taken from photographr, by
himself, in his ten years travel in
Mexico, and his exploring expedition
there, in 1894. The stereopticon has
been wonderfully improved and de
veloped in its possibilities during the
past few years, and the views last
night showed this to great advantage.
The principal features of the enter
tainment were the prehistoric ruins of
Mexico, the scene of the conquest, from
old paintings and present history. The
legend of Guadalupe, which is under
going such warm discussion at pres
ent, and last, but perhaps most inter
esting, the bull fight. There were
about twenty views of the latter,
showing the entire performance with
its fascinating and revolting details.
As the views were thrown on the fif

calcium lights, they were described in
full by the lecturer, who has a pleasing

THIEF ifl DISGUISE
HYMAN KAUFMAN'S BHOTHER-IN-
I. \W HOBS THOSE "WHO UU
TOOK THE EARNINGS OF YEARS
NEAT SIM OF Jjia.SOO SAVED BY
KAUFMAN AND MARKS
STOLEN BY ABRAHAM \\ oil LBERG.
At Leant He and the Money Dis
appeared at the Same Time —
Story of the Theft.
The police were notified early yester
day morning of a $2,800 robbery which
occurred on the West side Monday af
ternoon. The victims were Marks Cahn
and Hyman Kaufman, who reside at
165 Livingston avenue, and the amount
stolen represents the savings of many
years of hard work and economy. The
money was taken by Abraham Wohl
berg, a brother-in-law of Kaufman's,
who was stopping in the house and
who had been in this country only five
months from Russia. Up to last night
no trace of Wohlberg had been found,
although detectives are engaged in
searching for him, and the larger cities
have been wired to keep a watch out
for the thief.
Kaufman is a furrier by trade and
is employed by A. T. Rosen, who has
an establishment on Fillmore avenue.
He resides with his family at 165 Liv
ingston avenue. Living with him 'is
Marks Cahn, who also follows the fur
rier's trade, and is employed by Lan
pher, Finch & Skinner. Together the
twain had in cash $2,800, the greater
part of the bundle being in $100 bills.
Both Cahn and Kaufman kept their
money in one of the banKs, but a cou
ple of years ago during the financial
trouble they became alarmed and drew
out their money. Since then it has
been hidden away in a trunk in the
upper part of the building ln which
Some five months ago, Abraham
Wohlberg, a brother of Kaufman's
wife, came to St. Paul direct from Rus
sia. Wohlberg could not talk English,
and as he was without means he was
given a home with the Kaufman
family. Wohlberg, according to the
statements of both Cahn and Kauf
man, had money some years ago in
Russia, but at that time he paid little,
if any attention to his poorer relatives.
Kaufman left Russia several years ago,
and since arriving in St. Paul heard
that Wohlberg had lost what money
he had. The next they heard was when
Wohlberg came to the house about five
months ago and threw himself on the
bounty and hospitality of the Kauf
He didn't receive a very warm wel
come, but this did not seem to bother
him much, and he remained at the
house. Being advanced in years, there
was nothing Wohlberg could do in the
line of hard work, and his relatives in
terested themselves in securing him
something by which he could earn a
living. A school was organized and
Wohlberg Installed as schoolmaster,
which, while not a very paying enter
prise, gave the new arrival something
to do and brought in a little coin.
Monday afternoon, Wohlberg left the
house by a rear door without saying
where he was going. He did not put in
an appearance at supper, and when the
family retired he had not arrived home.
It was thought he had stopped all night
at a friend's house, and nothing was
thought of his absence. Yesterday
morning Kaufman awakened about 4:30
o'clock, the detectives say he had a
"hunch," and it suddenly occurred to
him that Wohlberg's absence might be
occasioned by the disappearance of the
"plant" owned by himself and Cahn.
He tried to get the idea out of his mind,
but the longer he thought about it, the
stronger became his suspicions. He
arose, lighted a candle, and went up
stairs where, the bankroll was hidden.
The money was gone, and, with a cry,
he aroused the other occupants of the
house. By this time it was nearly 6
o'clock, and both Cahn and Kaufman
hurried to the central station. The
shock to Kaufman seemed to have
rendered him almost speechless, and
he sat on what ls known as the "mour
ners' bench," sullen and depressed.
Cahn was affected greatly by his loss,
and tears rolled down his face and onto
his clothing, as he gazed from the win
dow and thought of the missing $1,500,
which he had saved by toil and
privations. Cahn informed the police
that he could identify each of the $100
bills he had lost, and started in to give
the names of the banks which had
Issued the bills which went to make up
the amount of his savings.
Telegrams describing the thief were
written and sent to Chicago and other
points, and the police we.c requested
to be on the lookout for Wohlberg. Cahn
seemed to be fearful that Wohlberg
would be able to get to Russia before
he could be apprehended and said that
if he once reached that country there
would be no chance of ever getting back
any part of the money.
Wohlberg is described as forty-six
years old, five feet six In height,
weight about one hundred ari*d fifty
pounds. He was dressed in a long
skirted black coat, blue striped pants |
and black slouch hat. He had when
last seen a full long beard, and his
eyes from some disease, are sore, weak
Cahn. who lost the $1,500, has offered
a reward of $300 for the arrest of Wohl
berg and the recovery of the money.
Kaufman, who ls out $1,300, says If
Wohlberg is captured he will prosecute
him to the full extent of the law.
JUNIOR PIONEERS' ANNUAL.
An Exciting Meeting la Promised
The annual meeting of the Ramsey
County Junior Pioneers will take place
this evening at their hall ln the Lowry
arcade, and it wiil probably be one
of the most exciting of the yaar. Two
important matters will come before
the meeting, the election of officers and
amendments to the constitution. There
are many candidates for the different
offices in the gift of the association
and the balloting, according to the
Australian system, will be strong and
long. Then will come the amendments
to the constitution, the most important
of which is to change the qualifications
for admission to membership. As the
constitution now stands, it requires a
residence of thirty years to become a
class member and residence in Ramsey
county prior to Jan. 1, 1861, to become
a junior member in the accepted term
of Junior Pioneer. It is proposed to
eliminate the thirty-year clause, thus
allowing only those who Tesided in
Ramsey county prior to Jan. 1, 1861, to
become members. This would prac
tically mean a complete standstill, or
in the near future the death of the
association, as it will limit the new
membership to so small a circle as to
practically kill it. There will be a
strong fight made on both sides and
the officers desire all members to be

The Judge Appreciates a Good
Thing: When He Hears It.
He had been arrested by a West side
police officer charged with "rushing j
the can" and was explaining the situ- j
ation to Judge Twohy.
"You see, your anner, w« were talk- '
ing about who'd be elected. The other

said it would be McKinley sure. They
say if you speak of the devil he's sure

McKinley was the officer's name.
The story was too much for Judge

part of City Prosecutor Oppenheim.

Crocus Hill: Mothers' club held Its opening
meeting for the season yesterday afternoon in
the parlors of First Presbyterian church and
listened to papers by members of the club.
The paper by Dr. Auten Pine was particularly
interesting, being on the "Standard of Wo
manly Health," and giving an outline of
the literature on the subject. She said that
the standard of health of the American woman
is below the noimal standard as compared
with other nations, and as compared with
the nation's own early history. Facts to prove
that there has been deterioration of type in
the last fifty years are: First, decrease in
birth rate since 1880; second, increase in
nervous diseases; third, absence of stamina
or reserve force. The destiny of woman is
as great as the destiny of man, but not the
same. Therefore her education should be
different in many respects. It is a mistake
for girls to be kept in school during the years
of their development, the strain of school life
being at the expense of the reserve force.
Mothers should study school hygienics. The
Interest being taken by women now in out
of door, exercises- and sport makes the future
promising. The club has been presented with
a gavel by onfe of the members.

WILL PREPARE AN ANSWER.
ATTORNEY JOH* F. KELLY EX
PLAINS THE GROUNDS ON WHICH •
SEEK TO PROCURE AN INJUNCTION.
He Thinks It Is No Langhing Matter,
That There Are Grounds for
Hon. Charming Seabury, chairman
of the Capitol commission, submitted to
Attorney General Childs yesterday the
papers served on him >1 the -proceed
ings begun by a numbar of the resi
dents of Kandiyohi county, through
Attorney John F. Kelly, to prevent the
construction of the new capitol build
ing in St. Paul. As told in the Globe
last week, the members of the com
mission were notified that injunction
proceedings would be '>egun before
Judge Ives at Crookston, to prevent the
state from erecting the proposed build
ing in St. Paul. The .nenbf-'.s of rho
commission do not apprehend .hat Hie
proceedings will amount to anything,
but as the case will come >;p it will be
necessary for the state to be represent
ed. So the attorney general will look
after.. it and prepare an answer at once.
John F. Kelly was asked yesterday
for a statement of the frauds on which
the proceedings were based. He said:
"The action involves four constitu
tional questions. One is that the «*eat.
of government at St. Paul was only
temporarily located here, and that for
such a temporary seat the state should
only have a temporary building, where
as the building of a new capitol will
be a permanent structure and will
mean the permanent seat of ,;overn
ment of the state.
"In the second place, it is claimed
that the constitution provides for ordi
nary and extraordinary expense. The
ordinary expenses are for charges and
expenses for the civil conduct of the
state government, while the extraordi
nary expenses are those other than the
ordinary. For the ordinary expenses
the ordinary tax levy is available. The
extraordinary expenses are by in
creased indebtedness, and are met by
the issUe of bonds or otherwise. In
this case the cost of erecting the cap
itol is to be taken from the ordinary
money for ordinary expenses, while
the money for extraordinary expenses
should be used.
"In the third place lt is claimed that
the lands for a capitol building were
p.ecepted from Kandiyohi by an irre
vocable ordinance by the state of Min
nesota, the constitution providing that
any donation of that kind shall be ap
propriated for that purpose. In this
case it is claimed those lands must be
first used for a permanent seat, that
is for a permanent building when one
is built, unless some other site is se
lected by a vote of the people.
"The law provides for a tax by using
the revenue fund as a cart for levying
that tax and doesn't provide in the ti
tle for the levying of the tax.
"We think it is all plain enough and
that the action is not a matter to be
"As for our beginning the action
where we did, I will tell you about that.
The law provided that such an action
shall be begun before some court that
would be the same as unbiased juror.
We did not begin it before the judge
up there, for he might not be unbiased.
For the same reason the proceedings
were not commenced here. The people
c&st their eyes over the state and
thought the judge at Crookston would
be the same as an unbiased juror, and
began the action there. That court
r ay not think there is anything ln lt,
and the state supreme court may not
tl ink there is anything in it, while the
United States supreme court may think
there is something in it, for there is
a principle involving a constitutional

ALLOWS THE GARBAGE BILL.
Committee on Claims Think Field
ing & Shepley Should Be Paid.
The committee on claims of the
heard of aldermen held a conference
yesterday afternoon with Health Com
missioner Stone relative to the bill of
tl c garbage contractors for the month
cf September, the bill having been re
ferred back to the committee because
Dr. Stone had refused to audit it.
Dr. Stone explained ln detail his
leasons for not auditing the bill and
for reporting to the council that he
was satisfied that Fielding and Shep
ley, the garbage contractors, had not
performed their work in accordance
with the terms of the contract. Dr.
Stone said that during the month of
September the health department had
received complaints from over 370 peo
ple, who reported from one to twenty
failures to collect their garbage during
that month, yet the contractors had
leported these failures as collections
cf garbage. Dr. Stone informed the
committee that the health department
always sent a man out to investigate
complaints, and if they were ascer
tained to be founded the fact was al
ways noted in the complaint book,
whereas, if the complaints were un
founded, that fact was likewise re
corded in the same book. In many
cases the complaints proved to be with
"While I do not believe the work has
been done," continued Dr. Stone, "I
do not consider that it is tho fault of
Fielding and Shepley. The terms of
the contract are hard upon the con
tractors. Ido not think that the work
of collecting all the garbage can be
done for less than $25,000 a year, and
the contractors realize ordinary day's
wages as profits. During the first week
of September the work was admirably
done, but during the rest of the month
1 1 was not.
"I desire to say with reference to
the charge that I am attempting to
shift the responsibility of approving
ihis bill upon the council, that I have
rot done so. On the contrary I have
accepted the responsibility placed upon
me, by refusing to audit the bill. More
ex er, I am not such a coward as to
recuse a man by insinuation."
The committee thanked Dr. Stone
for the Information furnished and the
doctor thereupon departed.
Mr. Shepley, one of the contractors,
then spoke in his own behalf. He re
minded the committee that hundreds
of people had garbege on hand imme
diately after the G. A. R. encampment
who never had accumulated any to
speak of before. Most of them neg
lected to provide the proper receptacle
ior their garbage, without which the
c mtractor was not obliged to collect
the garbage. Notwithstanding this
omission, Mr. Shepley d<*-clared,
his firm had endeavored to collect the
garbage and in short had done the
work as well, if not better, than lt
had ever been done before.
The members of the committee were
disposed to admit that this was true.
Aid. Lindahl said that he was satisfied
that the work was b*ing done aa well

"But it puts the council in a peculiar
light," added Aid. Lindahl, "to allow
a bill that the health commissioner
lefuses to audit."
After some further discussion, how
ever, the Committee recommended that
tiie bill, amounting to ?1,217, be al
The committee also considered the
bill of $80 presented by Kenny Bros,
for the ground rent of a lot In the
Third ward, upon which ail election
booth was erected in 1890 and used for j
election purposes- in that year and in :
1892. As it was in use for four elec- |
t;ons. the ground rent charged amount- ,
ed to $20 for each election period, i
Under the rule adopted by the council j
this year, the amount allowed for j
giound rent for one election is only
?;,. The committee accordingly recom
mended that the bill be cut down to
$20. The bill as submitted bears the
indorsement of aldermen of the Third
ward in 1890 and 1892.
FILING OF NOMINATIONS.
Certificates Hail to Be In the Possea
sion of Auditor Yesterday.
The man nominated for a county or
legislative office who did not file his
certificate of nomination with the au
ditor of the county in which he resides,
either yesterday or before that time,
will have to wait until another election
to get his name on the ticket. Yester
day was the last day for filing nomina
tions under the law and in many coun
ties some of the candidates waited until
that time to carry out that require
ment of the law. All the candidates,
nominated by the Ramsey county c-on
' ventions, however, had looked after
that piece of work or the county com- ;
mittees had looked after it for them
so fhat there are no ommissions from j
either ticket where nominations had
In some of the other counties in the j
state, however, it seems that the filing
was not made till the last day. At
torney General Childs received several ,
telegrams from county auditors yester- '
day asking for information on the ques- ;
tion of fees. The Inquiry was mainly
as to whether one or two fees should
be charged to the same candidate who
had been nominated by more than one ;
party. Previous to the ruling of the
Hennepin county judges, Gen. Childs
when asked as to whether or not one or !
two fees should be charged advised !
the auditor to collect a fee for each
certificate of nomination that was pre
sented for filing, and if a deslsion of a i
court were secured and it was found
that only one was necessary, the other
could he returned. Since the Henne- ■
pin decision the attorney general's of
fice has referred all inquiries to that
In Hennepin, Judges Russell, Belden i
and Elliott heard arguments in the I
case. Judges Russell and Belden de- >
cided that one fee was all that ls neces
■ary, while Judge Elliott holds that one j
fee should be filed paid fpr each cer
tificate. The majority's ruling, how
ever, goes, until a higher court decides
otherwise. It was said that the case
would be taken to the supreme court, j
but it is doubtful If It will at this late
day, although It may be carried up to
settle the question for all time.
The case against J. K. Bacon, arrested for
passing a worthless check for $5 at Schmidt
BroS.' butcher shop, was continued in the ■
police ' court yesterday to Monday. Bacon
claims it was all a mistake and the matter
will probably be settled out of court.
