KESI'LT OF THE PRELIMINARY

ASSAVL.T CASE.
WALDRON WAS BOUND OVER,

H VXD.
OXE MAX SAW THE BLOW STRUCK.
Condition of the Injured Man Siieli
That He Wasn't Allowed to
Appear in Court.
The examination of Robert X. Grady and
William J. Waldron, charged with assaulting
Paul E. Beuz with a dangerous weapon on
the night of Oct. 17 was heard before Judge
Orr yesterday. The result of the hearing was
that Grady was discharged without intro
ducing any witnesses on his own behalf, and
Waldron held to await the action of the
grand jury. Waldron gave bonds in the
cum of $1,000 and was released.
T. D. O'Brien, attorney for the prisoners,
objected strongly to the hearing taking place
without Beuz being in court. This objection
was made Monday, and at that time the at
torney requested that a physician, to be se
lected by him. be allowed to examine Benz
in -order to ascertain his exact condition.
This was agreed to, and the report of the
physician was to have been submitted yester
day. It Is probable that Mr. O'Brien was
Informed yesterday as to the result of the ex
amination, but if so, he said nothing about
it, and offered no objection to the examina
tion proceeding without the presence of Benz
in court.
Peter Fruetel, one of the men who was
with Benz at the time of the occurrence, was
the first witness. He stated that all went into
the place, and Benz ordered beer for the
crowd. After the beer had been set out upon
the bar Grady, who was tending the bar at
the time, asked who was going to pay for the
drinks. Mr. Benz answered that he was,
but that another round was wanted. Then
Grady came out from behind the bar, and
after a few words, struck Benz in the face
•with his hand. This caused considerable
confusion. The witness heard something
crack behind him, as though some one had
been hit. and turning around he saw Benz
reeling- aud falling to the floor, and Waldron
standing with a billy in his hand. After
Benz had lain on the floor for some seconds
Waldron walked around behind the bar and
laid the billy down>% When Benz recovered
consciousness he asked that he be given
some water to wash the blood off his face
, . and this was refused hjm.
Herman Barfuss. another of the workmen
who went into the saloon with Benz, gave
corroborative testimony. He did not see the
blow struck.either.but when he turned around
to see what caused the noise he saw Wald
ron standing with a billy in his hand. He
introduced one new point in the case by as
serting that he heard Grady tell Waldron
to "take that back," evidently meaning the
weapon, and that immediately afterwards
Waldron went behind the bar and laid the
"billy" down. Witness denied on cross-ex
amination that Benz called Grady vile
namej. that he refused to pay for the drinks
wherTrequested to do so, or that Benz struck
bis head upon the foot-railing running along
the outside of the bar near where he fell.
Walter McXab was in the saloon at the
time Benz and his companions came in. He
saw the entire affair, and bwore positively
that he saw Waldron walk up beh'nd Benz
and slug him in the head with the billy.
There \jas no fight going on at the time.
Benz and Grady having been separated for
fully a minute. There was considerable loud
talking, and Benz was excited, but he was
doing nothing which would lead one to sup
pose that he was meditating an assault.
Upon cross-examination, T. D. O'Brien, who
appeared for the defense, asked M cNab if he
had not gone to the saloon of Waldron &
Grady and offered to testify for Waldron for a
cash consideration. He denied the charge ab
solutely.
As Dr. Schwyzer, the attending physician
of Benz. was going to be out of the city
for some time, it was agreed between coun
sel for the defense and the state that his
deposition should be introduced in court. It
was received without objection, and a sum
mary of the contents gven by Messrs. O'Brien
and Donnelly. The doctor says upon the sec
ond examination of Benz he discovered that
his skull was fractured at the base and
that, the fracture extended to the ear drum
rupturing the latter and endangering the life
of the patient. Though Benz is somewhat
improved at this time, his recovery is by no
means certain In the estimation of *Dr
Schwyzer. His deposition declares that outside

The defense offered no testimony, and
Judge Orr directed that Waldron be held to

MISS TAYLOR'S CASE.
It AY 111 Be Heard by Juilffe Orr
Nov. 30.
Miss Rebecca Taylor was arraigned
before Judge Orr yesterday morning
on a charge of criminal libel made by
James Schoonmaker. Misg Taylor on
I Monday requested a continuance of the
I case until Dec. 1, but the court at that
time said it would be hardly possible
; to grant so long a continuance. Yes
i terday John E. Hearne, the attorney
j for the defendant, stated to the court
! that he would be unable to appear in
court- until the last of the month and
requested a continuance to Nov. 30.
Assistant County Attorney Donnelly
offered no objection and the case was
set for that date. The offense with
which Miss Taylor stands charged is
under the code of misdemeanor and can
be disi>osed of by the police court
judge. Miss Taylor, through her at
torney, has demanded a jury trial and
this was so ordered by the court.
SHOPERA'B TURK JfOW.
Minneapolis Detectives Had a Dream
That May Cost Money.
Louis Shopera, the Jackson street
pawnbroker, now threatens a suit
against the Minneapolis police officials
I for $25,000 damages. Shopera was
charged with conducting a "fence" for
thieves and receiving stolen property.
The Minneapolis police made a great
fuss about the case and claimed that a
wagon load of goods which had been
stolen from Minneapolis had been re
covered from Shopera's store. Sho
pera at the time denied the charge and
the grand jury of Hennepin county,
which is now in session, failed to find
an indictment against him.

Result of a Collision.
James C. Scott and A. E. Michaud are be
; ing sued before Judge Willis and a jury in
■ the district court for $1,056 personal damages
as an alleged violation of the city ordinance
against fast driving. The complainant in the
; case is Henry F. Bailey, who claims that his
two children. Albert, aged" fifteen, and Ethel,
a.g-?d nine years, were seriously Injured by
defendants speeding their horses on the pub
lic streets. The accident occurred on the
j evening of Aug. 14 at Dale street and Sher
' burne avenue. The children were turning
I from Sherburne avenue into Dale street with
! a carriage when a collision occurred between
I their buggy and one driven by Mr. Scott. Al-
I bert Bailey was rendered unconscious for ten
hours, besides sustaining other injury, while
Ethel Bailey is claimed to have been in
jured about the spine and ankle.
Justus' Rill Against the City.
Judge Willis has tried and taken under
consideration the case of Phillip C. Justus
against the city of St. Paul. The complain
ant performed an amount of work for the
board of education in supplying certain
school buildings with furnaces, but was un
able to secure his pay, because of the bills
being held up by the city comptroller. The
ground of this official in refusing to audit
the bills was that the board of education had
no authority to contract an indebtedness
against the city without a two-thirds vote of
the common council. The case was tried be
fore the court without the assistance of a
jury.
Wanted for Farm Purposes.
James H. Richardson et al. have filed an
application In the district court, by petition,
asking that certain parts of the town plats
of Garden Place and White Bear Beach be
vacated. Petitioners are the owners of con
siderable property in the additions described
and seek the vacation on the ground that the
land is not required and is not desirable for
village or city purposes. It is said to be fit
only for farm use, for which purpose the
petitioners state they desire to utilize it.

INTO A GELL TO DIE

THE POLICE, SLOWLY BLEEDS
TO DEATH.
WAS NOT DRUNK, BUT DYING.
POLICE SEEM TO HAVE MADE A
BAD BLINDER IX THE
CASE.
WOUXDS MADE HIM IXCOHEREXT.
Fracture of the Skull and Hem
orrhage at the Base of the
Brain the Cause.
Edward Burns, flfty-two years old,
and living at 507 "Van Buren street,
died at the Rondo street station yes
terday afternoon from a fractured
skull. He had been arrested at 11:30
o'clock yesterday morning, and taken
to the station in the patrol sleigh. The
charge against him was that of drunk
enness, and after being placed in a cell
he was locked up, and no attention
paid to him until 1:30 o'clock. At that
hour the wagon which conveys pris
oners to the police court usually leaves
the station, and Patrolman Beattie,
who had occasion to go into the cell
room, startled his fellow officers by
saying that the man in one of the cells
was dead. Patrolman Baer, who is
detailed at the station as jailer, hur
riedly unlocked the cell, and a super
ficial examination showed that the
prisoner had been dead some time. Dr.
L. C. Bacon, the nearest physician, was
summoned, but his services were not
needed, death having claimed its vic
tim half an hour before.
Coroner Whitcomb was notified, and
the body was removed to Dohm's un
dertaking rooms, where an autopsy
was held last evening. The post mort
em made by Drs. Finnell, MeNamara
and Dohm, and attended by Coroner
Whitcomb. revealed that death was
caused by a hemorrhage at the base of
the brain, resulting from a fracture of
the skull. Dr. Whitcomb, seen last
evening, said there was no occasion for
an inquest. From what he had been
able to learn from the police, who, after
the death of Burns, at once commenced
an investigation, the fracture was
caused by a fall from a horse shortly
after 10 o'clock yesterday morning.
The injury to Burns' skull was such
that he was partly deranged, and in
this condition the policeman mistook
his actions as those of a drunken man,
and sent him to the station on that
charge.
About 10:45 yesterday morning Pa
trolman Kirchmaier noticed a middle
aged man lying in the middle of the
street on Dale near Van Buren streets.
The man had one end of a halter, in
his hand^and had apparently been lead
ing a horse which stood near. As the
officer approached the man struggled to
his knees and attempted to regain his
feet by grabbing the horse's fore legs.
Kirchmaier assisted the man to his feet
and asked him his name and address.
Blood was flowing from a cut on the
man's right cheek and his cap, which
had fallen off, showed another wound in
the scalp which was bleeding. Accord
ing to Kirchmaier's statements made
yesterday afternoon the man did net
or could not speak distinctly, and as he
acted in a confused manner the officer
at once surmised that he was intoxi
cated. At this juncture Peter Remakel,
of 717 Dale street, came up and in
formed the officer that there was no
need to arrest the man. Remakel said
he would take the man in his house
and in the course of an hour or so he
would be all right. Joseph Boeldinger,
who lives on Ireland street near Avon.
came along at this time and explained
that he knew where the horse belonged
and would see that it was taken home.
The officer offered no serious objection
to the proposition of either Remakel or
Boeldinger so Remakel took the man to
his house, and Boeldinger started off
with the horse.
Twenty minutes later the police
officer was informed that the man
Remakel had taken to his house was
making trouble and thait he would have
to be taken away. Remakel told the
officer that the man had, as soon as
he entered the house, commenced to act
quarrelsome and talked a good deal.
All that Remakel could understand
from the man's talk was "that it took
a pretty good man to handle him."
This and the queer actions of the
stranger frightened Remakel and his
wife and the police officer was called
in to take him away. Kirchmaier
pulled for the Rondo wagon at 11:39
and a few minutes afterward the man
was placed in the patrol sleigh and
taken to the Rondo street station. Ar
riving at the station Detective Sweeney
assisted the jailer to cary the prisoner
to a cell. Capt. Lowell, who was in the
station at the time, noticed that the
prisoner was a very large man and
seemed to be helpless. It was at his
suggestion Sweeney went cut to help
the jailer carry the prisoner in. Capt.
j Lowell also noticed that the right cheek
of the prisoner was bleeding but did
not. think at the time he was seriously
injured. The man was placed in a sit
ting position on a bunk in one of the
! cells and left to sober up.
At 12:30 Jailer Baer went into the
cell room and casually noticed that the
prisoner had changed his position on
the bunk but was still in a sitting pos
ture. No one saw or noticed him again
until 1:30 when Patrolman Beattie
noticed that the man was sleeping in a
very uncomfortable position. He went
nearer to the cell and was surprised to
j find that the prisoner was not breath
ing.
From papers found in the pockets of
the dead man he was identified as Ed
ward Burns, of 507 Van Buren street.
Inquiry at that place resulted in clear
ing up the mystery. Burns, who has
! lived for a number of years at Dv
i tuque, came to St. Paul two months
; or so ago to visit his daughters. One,
! Mrs. Gustave Kruse. lives at 507 Van
I Buren street, and the other. Mrs. John
l L. Schwenn, at 462 Thomas strpet.
j Since his arrival in the city Burns has
I been making his home at 507 Van Bu
! ren street. His son-in-law, Gustave
I Kruse, is a teamster, and there being
j several horses in the barn, it has been
the habit of Burns to exercise the
j horses each morning. Yesterday morn
i ing he left the house riding one of the
horses between 9 and 10 o'clock. Just
where he rode to or how the accident i
occurred which resulted in his death :
has not been learned. Joseph Boeld
| inger, who lives on Ireland street, met
I Burns on Minnehaha street about 10:30
! yesterday morning. He was trying to
mount the horse from which he had
evidently either fallen or been thrown
! Horn. Burns requested Boeldinger to
| help him remount the animal, but this
i Boeldinger refused to do, fearing that
Burns would receive further injuries.
! At the time Burns' face was partly
| covered with blood and he was stag
. gering somewhat. Boeldinger conclud
i ed Burns was intoxicated and passed i
j on. Some minutes later Mrs. Remakel
1 noticed Burns near the corner of Min
nehaha and Dale streets, endeavoring i
i to mount the horse. She called her j
; husband's attention to the man and a
| few minutes later when the police of
; ficor started to arrest Burns, Remakel
; made <he proposition to take him in
i the house until he had recovered.
The two daughters of Burns, seen
'. last evening, were completely prostrated j
I by the shock of their father's death. |
I Mrs. Schwenn said her father had vis- i
I ited her Tuesday night and remained
until 10 o'clock, when he left for her
sister's house. Her father, she said,
was not a drinking man, and she talk
ed very strongly about- the carelessness
of the police who took it for granted
that he was, intoxicated, and instead of
caHing a doctor, locked him up in a cell
and charged him with being drunk.
The phyatciaais who made the post
mortem say that the nature of the in
juries receded by Burns would ac
count for Ms actions from the time he
was seen an Minnehaha street by
Boeldinger until he was locked up at
the station.-: The officer who made the
arrest said tie could not talk coherent
ly, and Jailer Baer, at the station,
says Burns, endeavored to talk while
on the way sto the station, but he could
not understand what he was talking
about. The relatives of the deceased
are of the opinion, as are also the po
lice, that Burns was thrown from his
horse and knowing that he was seri
ously injui*d. was trying to get back
home. He evidently realized that he
could not make himself understood and
trusted to the intelligence of the ani
mal to take him to the house.
HAWAII AND ITS PEOPLE.
Lecture hy Mrs. Ruth Ward Kahn
Befo-re Jewish Women.
"The paradise of the Pacific and the
bride of the sun," was the description
given of Hawaii, by Mrs. ; Ruth Ward
Kahn last evening in a lecture on the
Hawaiian islands, delivered under the
auspices of the local branch of the Na
tional Council of Jewish Women, at
the Mount Zion congregation syna
gogue, corner of Tenth and Minnesota
streets. A small audience greeted the
speaker of the occasion, but the lack
of numbers in no way detracted from
the enjoyment of the lecture which was
a literary treat of merit as well as a
discourse of instruction. Mrs. Kahn is
well qualified to speak of Hawaii and
its people, having traveled extensively
through the islands in 1890-91 for the
purpose of pleasure and study. . During
her stay in Hawaii she was the guest
of the king of the islands and in her as
sociations with the royal family
learned much of the Hawaiians as a
people and of the affairs of state!
Her knowledge of the overthrow of the
native government by alien settlers
and the deposing of Queen Lilioukalam,
in addition to a realistic description or'
the natural beauties of the semi-tropi
cal region and an unveiling of the na
tional character, composed the theme
of the lecture. Mrs. Kahn is interested
in the education of Jewish women and
it was in the interest of this cause that
she appeared before a St. Paul audi
ence. Thoug-h-in its incipiency her ef
forts have feeen so successful that she
has already placed four young women
in different- prominent educational in
stitutions.
In many sespects, the speaker said In
the course of her discourse. Hawaii was
a remarkable country. Its people were
the only black race who had supported
a white population in their midst for so
many years- and still retained their own
government. They were intelligent,
truthful and honest, but the speaker
was forced to admit, exceptionally in
dolent. This, however, could not be
urged as a mark of inferiority, but
must be regarded as a characteristic
incident of -their invironment. Physic
ally the especially the
women, were of an almost perfect type.
Tall, well proportioned, graceful and
lithe of movement, they were in many
instances beautiful despite their dark
skin. The poorer class of the people,
Mrs. Kahn said, lived in rude grass
huts, but in her observations she had
seen examples of domestic happiness
which excelled in simple beatitude
anything she had ever before witnessed
amidst wealth and luxury.
A description of the volcanoes of Ha
waii visited by Mrs. Kahn, formed an
interesting part of the lecture, but per
haps the most vivid picture was that
of the leper island situated some forty
miles from Honolulu. Half way to the
retreat was a "suspect" station, where
those thought to be infected with the
terrible disease were detained. On the
island itself, when Mrs. Kahn made her I
visit, there were 1,800 lepers. When the
boat landed hundreds of the unfortu
nates in all stages of the dread disease
flocked to the dock. They did not cry
out, "unclean, unclean," as in the time
of the Savior, but only approached to
within a certain distance of the visi
tors. It was a sight to melt a heart of
stone, Mrs. Kahn declared, but her dcs- ,
cription of a pleasure party of lepers
riding horse back on the island was
even mere horrible in its details. The
creatures on the horses had ceased to
resemble human beings and their en
forced mirth was as the sound of a
death knell. All of the unfortunates
confined on the island were a public
charge upon the Hawaiian government
and were accorded all possible com
fort and care in their lingering death.
The royal family of Hawaii had been
unjustly criticised according to Mrs.
Kahn, who-defended the queen from a
personal knowledge of her character
and worth. The deceased king of the
islands, she said, had been a man of
ability, who had forced recognition
from the sovereigns of Europe and the
overthrow and imprisonment of Queen
Liliougalani was an unjust act that a
few aliens might control the govern
ment. The speaker concluded with the
statement that there was some posso
bility that the queen might again soon
be restored to her throne and expressed
the wish that that day might speedily
arrive.

Election Bet Paid and Xew Social
Club Organized.
An outcome of the recent election
was the formation of a social ciub
which has for its name the "St. Paul
Goose Club." The organization is the
result of an election bet in which it
was stipulated that the loser should
steal from the Bohemian flats a live
goose, which should be sacrificed
a goose supper. Last night the bfet
was paid and the goose dinner was
served at Bavarian club quarters on
Robert street. After the close of the
dinner a permanent club was organiz
ed, and the following officers elected
for the year: Gustav H. Hoffman, "
president; Paul C. Zander, vice presi
dent; Oscar F. Illgen, secretary, and
Paul Quehl, treasurer. The club pro
poses on the first Tuesday of each
month to have a goose dinner. At
each meeting lots are drawn and the
unlucky member must steal a live
goose and have the same cooked and
prepared for the next monthly feast.
Fourteen members signed the roll labt
night. Dr. August Hinsch acted as
toastmaster at last night's meeting. -
