of the second trailer of the first train
with George H. Finch ami Thomas B.

cident, noticed the man leaning up
t a telegraph pole with liis
hands pressed t<> his side. Mr. Oppen
heim called a cab and sent him to
his borne :u 6!1 Dayton avenue. Dr.
Abbott was summoned and remained
with the young man for two hours.
When seen by a reporter for the
Globe, l>r. Abbott said that the In
juries of Young were located on the
left aidfe am" 1 right thigh. It is feared
thai he may also be injured Internally.
E. A. Young, father tst' He.ny. spoke
rather bitterly against the manner in !
which the cars were run an the Selby I
hill. From his son's version Mr.
Young s-aid that there was no doubt as !
to xh^ fault resting with the company, j
"II was groea carelessness," said Mr.
Young, "to allow two trains on tho j
same track at the same time. No one
was sent to the bottom of the hill to
notify the train following that there j
was any trouble on the hill."
Dr. Alfred P. Ream, of the Aberdeen, !
as stated heretofore, was a p-as- I
Bonger. "It was a piece of outrageous
carelessness of the company," said he, ;
"If the motor-mail of the second train ;
had been informed at the proper time
that there was an accident on the hill I
an-d not to proceed there would have
bees no trouble at all. There was a !
new niotorman on our train, the second
train, who was in charge, and by his
side stood an old eni;.)b-ye, instruct- |
ing him. The new man did not seem I
to understand what to do -at the vish* ]
Thomas Scott and George R. Finch i
were on the rirst train, but both jumped I
ofi" in time. Mr. Scott said he watched
the train slari to make the des< riu
and did not notice any extraordinary
velocity In the speed, a: ; <i started for
borne. He did not witness the acciuVn'.
Frederick E. Clayton, superintendent
at ihe Abbott Manufacturing company I
residing at 43 .Mackubin street, was o;i
the from trailer of the second train at
the time of the accident. He escaped
without Injury, but received a general ;
shaking u;>. Mr. Clayton said to a re- I
porter for the G1 o b c that he saw no
one but Miss Holmberg who was
seriously injured, and did not hear
any complaints. In the same car with i
Mi. Clayton were Dr. Lyons, Charl. s i
Corning, E. 1.. Meyers and other well
known gentlemen. None of them were I
Injured. Fred Wilson, bookkeeper for j
the First National bank, living at 61
North Dale street, was on one of the
trains but escaped with a whole skin.
D. H. MeCloud, of 534 Selby avenue, j
was on the first train and escaped by
jumping while the cars were in motion.
There were so many on the two train*
and so much confusion that others
may have been hurt whose names were
Supt. Smith, speaking of the acci
dent, said the train stopped near the
top of the hill and whenever a tratn
etops on the hill the orders are to back
it down and start from the bottom In
stead of starting on the hill. After the
train had stopped long enough to let
those who desired get x>ff it was al
lowed to run do/-n the hill Slowly. I
The tracks are always kept sanded and I
both the wedge brakes and the rubber
brakes on the grip worked well until
they struck the curve on Third street.
There the snow had made the tracks i
slippery and the brakes wouldn't hold, i
so they lost control of the car, which !
< ontlnued to .slide down until it struck
the second car at Pleasant avenue.
Supt. Smith says that not a brakeman !
neglected his duty, every one was at i
Ms brake, and but for the snow on the
< urre the accident wiukl not have
happened at all.
Mr. Smith also added that there was
no regular flagman on the hill. There

SAXTA (LAIS IS CALLING
And Ho Tells You About the Manger
Assignee Piano Sale.
Christmas is coming, helgho, heigho,
and pianos are going mighty low. Thi3
is fact, not fiction. The Hunger as
signee piano sale at 49 East Seventa
street proves it.
When Mr. Munger bought his pianos
and organs he paid cash and got them
very low. When he was carried down
by endorsing for friends he turned over
his stock to his creditors. They told
me to sell them quickly. No matter
what the loss it must be done. Though
the cash purchase gave them to Mr.
Munger at a very low figure, I have
put them to the public at from one
third to one-fourth what they cost
him. You can get the benefit of this
if you are lively.
Fer instance, there's an A. B. Chase,
upright, rosewood case, the largest size,
for $145 with stool and scarf free.
A Briggs upright, seven and one-third j
octaves, rosewood case; a fine piano, I
Everett, burl walnut, largest size, as- j
signee's price, $212 with stool and scarf.
And many more of the same sort.
Anil you only have to pay $25 cash and |
$10 a month. \^Jty, everybody can at- i
ford a piano at such prices and on j
such terms whether Christmas comes i
or not. But you are going to expend a j
little money for Christmas. Why not i
get som* thing which delights the whole
fafhily? I will keep the piano for you
nnd deliver Christmas eve if you wish. j
It's a great chance and you had better ;
find your way to 49 East Seventh j
street, between Cedar and Minnesota, i
without delay. —A. E. Whitney,
Agent for the Munger Assignee Piano

the Commercial club last night for the
purpose of considering the advisability I
of a general improvement of the condi

and a betterment of the roads around

Considerable time was devoted to
discussing the causes of the loss of
the water supply of White Bear lake
and the possibility of replenishing it by i
connecting it with the surrounding j
lakes. It was decided that certain im
provements ought to be made, and
finally a committee was appointed to
make investigations and report as to

Ralph Ma <-li:in Im Hhillv Ilnrned fey
Mrs. Ralph Machau. living at 74 Water
street, narrowly escaped serious injury last '
evening by the explosion of a lamp which
she had filled with gasoline supposing the
fluid to be the kerosene which ahe was ac
customed to use. In extinguishing the flames
following the explosion, Mr. Machau was
painfully burned about the face, though his
injuries are not of a serious nature. Yester
day afternoon Mrs. Machau purchased a gai
lon of oil from a nearby grocery and about
8 o'clock last evening filled a kitchen lamp,
with tiie result that when a. match was
applUd to the wick the explosion occurred.
Fortunately the woman had turned her head
to speak to her husband as she struck the
match and escaped with nothing more than
a sever© fright. The scattered oil set fire
to the tablecloth and Mr. Machau received
his burns in extinguishing the flames thus
caused. The woman does not speak English
and It is thought that the grocer from whom
she purchased the oil misunderstood her re
quest for kerosene and filled the can with the
; more combustible liquid.

PC'S 1897 BUDGET
Of) MPT ROLLER M'CAJITJY SUBMITS
HIS ANNUAL ESTIMATE TO COH
CITY WILL NEED $1,510,244,
A< (ORBING TO THE WAY HE HAS
FIUIRBD OUT THE FUTURE
MORE THAN LAST ALLOWANCE.
Tills let Partially Explained by the
Sum to Retire $i50,04>0 Worth
City Comptroller McCardy submitted
to the conference committee yesterday
his annual estimate of the expenses of
the city of St. Paul for the ensuing
year. It varies in many respects from
the document submitted by the comp
troller a year ago, and also differs
largely in some of the items as they
were finally fixed by the common coun
cil. The main differences are as fol
The comptroller estimates that the
sum of 11,510,244 will be required to be
raised by tax levy in order to carry
on the business of St. Paul and main
tain the schools during the year 1897.
Last year he estimated that $1,481,907
must be raised by tax levy, but the
council cut the estimate down to $1,300,
--447. This leaves a difference between
the total estimate allowed for 1896 and
the estimate proposed for 1897 of $209,
A glance over the estimate for 1897
shows at once one cause of a material
increase. It appears in the second item,
which provides for the sum of $150,000
for the redemption of bonds issued in
March and September of the year 1872.
Inasmuch as no bonds came duei n
1896, no expenditure of this nature was
Proceeding down the list, it will be
noted that $13,000 more is required to
meet the expenses of the police depart
ment by reason of the unpaid salaries
for the month of November, 1896. A
shortage in the lighting fund rendering
it impossible to pay contract bills in
curred prior to 1896, as well as during
the present year, necessitates an in
crease of the lighting estimate from
$120,000 to $155,000, so the comptroller
The comptroller's estimate of the
amount required for the sohool fund
is $83,750 in excess of the sum allowed
last year. Of this excess, the sum of
$20,000 is placed in the estimate for free
text books, and $15,000 for a new school
building in the Second ward. The
cr.mptroller also thinks that the esti
mate for the street, sewer and bridge
maintenance fund should be $150,000
instead of $140,000, the sum fixed upon
for the year 1896. The?? are the ma
terial increases recommenced by the
comptroller. Reference to the various
other items will show the other in
creases as well as the minor reduc
tions. The total increase amounts to
something over $300,000.
The principal reductions are to be
found in items three and twenty, the
certificate of indebtedness department
| fund, the judgment fund and Uv>
printing, advertising and stationery
fund. In the first named fund, the
i saving is entire, as the interest on thy
tax levy certificates, amounting to $55.
--000, is to be paid out of the general
fund, whereas last year, the tax esti
mate provided for $40,000 with which
to pay a portion of the $110,132 interest
due after paying $70,132 from the gen
j era! fund. The judgment fund, as fixed
I in the estimate for 1396, was $44,739.
I The 1897 estimate is reduced to $17,500.
i while the estimate for printing, adver
| tifcing and stationery is cut from $20,000
; to $6,000. The amount needed for the
i purpose will be much less than during
i the present year as there will be no
; election in 18S7.
A considerable reduction is also to he
-1 noted in the workhouse fund, as owing
: tc a balance on hand of $10,0000, only
i $16,000 additional is estimated to be
needed instead of levying a tax of
i §28,214 as was done this year. There
; is also a reduction of the estimate for
, the engineering department amounting
j to nearly $8,000. The remaining reduo
l tions bring the total up to about $98,000.
The conference wiil hold daily se*
| sions for the consideration of the tax
! estimate, beginning at 3 o'clock this
: afternoon. Tomorrow afternoon. Items
: nine and ten, covering the school fund.
j will be made the special order of busl-
I ness, as a number of tax payers wish
to be heard.
The committee accepted and placed
on file all the monthly reports of ths
members. President Abbott was re
quested to file a supplemental report
showing what has become of the
tuition fees received during .the year
1*96 from non-resident pupils. The te&t
amount to $43.

ARMY OK JAPAJf.
Historical Society Listens to a Dla
euHsion of It.
The state historical society met at
the state capitol last evening and those
! present listened to two very interest-
I ing addresses. D. L. Kingsbury, of
the Eighth Minnesota, gave a very
thrilling and profitable description of
j the Sully campaign against the In
dinns in 1833-4. Mr. Kingsbury took an
active part in the memorable campaign.
He detailed the hardships of the
journey and several battles with the
Lieut. John H. Beacom, Third United
States infantry, of Fort Snelling, who
was attached to the Japanese army
during the recent Japan-China war at
the request of the American govern
ment, gave a vivid description of both
armies and their achievements. Lieut.
j Beacon] said he was attached to the
I Japanese army through the courtesy
I of the latter government, and that
I military etiquette would prevent him
I from giving any detailed history of
the movements of the Jap forces. He,
however, narrated the events leading
up to the great war and illustrated on
a map the country over which the
groat contest of arms ranged. Great
I interest was manifested in the lieuten
: ant's analysis of the armies of the two
: nations. The Chinese army was com
i posed of the riff-raff of the empire.
■ To wear the uniform of the Chinese
aimy was considered a sign of dis
grace. The soldiers had no interest
in. their own cause. They were poorly
equipped, a greater portion of the regi
ments being armed with bows and
arrows, instead of guns.
Speaking of the military standing of
t Japan, the lieutenant said the develop
| ment of a modern army commenced
1 about thirty years ago, and the army of
j today was strictly up to date. The
! speaker witnessed the battle of Port
Arthur, and saw more great modern
guns in action than were possessed at
that time by the United States. Thirty
years ago Japan was controlled by a
I military feudalism. Individual dukes
kept standing armies ranging from
5.000 to 25,000 men in their own name.
Tht powers of the Western hemisphere
I interested the Japanese government in
a reform, and these feudal systems
were broken up, and with the nucleus
taken from the feudal armies the pres-
I ent army of Japan was started. By
birth, intelligence and training, the
Japanese made as good soldiers as can
I be. found on the globe. The patriotism
!of the people is. astonishing. It per-
I vades all classes and all ages. The
people look upon the flag of the coun
| try as a sacred object and expect to
pee it carry influence and power into
1 all parts of the world. The counti y
was called Nippon, meaning the Land
of the Rising Sun. The new flag of
Japan was composed of a white field
and a great rising sun. Lieut. Beacom
I said the people of all civilized countries
should look seriously upon Japan as
one of the great nations.
Briefly referring to the war, Lieut.
Beacom said the terms of surrender
dictated by Japan were a3 humane as
those of any civilized nation. Chinese
; prisoners were discharged and provid
ed with two days' rations. The bodies
of Admiral Ting, the greatest Chinese
admiral, and six of his fellow officers, j
: who committed suicide on suffering de- j
; feat, were sent home on one of his own
ships which the Japs returned after
I its capture.
Judge Charles E. Flandrau, who was
in Japan in ISS4, gave an interesting i
talk upon the military development of I
the Japanese and recited several per
sonal Incidents which came under hfs
observation while in the Orient.

Italian Hold on Suspicion
Peter Dcdavia and Joseph AUamiott, the
! two Italians arrested at the instance of
Sheriff Waterman, of Barron county, Wis.,
last Saturday. »n suspicion of having knowl
edge of a murder which ocurred in Wis
consin umt time ago, were examined yester
day and Dedaria released from custody. The
men are thought to have seen a watch of i
tin; murdered man in the possession of a third j
party recently, but Ailamioft Hsiablished a |
lack of knowledge of the timopiecp, and was !
allowed to ffo. Dedaria did not satisfactorily
expLefa himself, and was again locked up at
'J\c central station. Sheriff Waterman re
turned to Wisconsin last evening, where ha
has gone for certain papers in the case.
