Meetings of the assembly and board
of aldermen were held last evening,
the business before the assembly being
I the election of a successor to Assembly
| man Krahmer, who resigned from the
body to step into the register of deeds
I office. The nine members of the as-
I sembly went into caucus at 7:30 and
j for an hour and twenty minutes they
j remained behind closed doors. As told
j in the Globe of yesterday, the ad
i ministration, or rather the mayor and
his advisers, were in favor of Armand
Albrecht as Krahmer's successor. It
was anticipated there would not be
much trouble in coming to an agree
ment in the caucus, but there was, and
j at one time it looked as though j. J.
! Parker, of the Seventh ward, would be
the new assemblyman. This was avert
ed, however, by the vote, in which
j Parker received five of the eight votes
j cast, being declared an informal one.
Col. Lowenstein managed to get three
votes on two ballots, but after this he
I was never in it. Shell Blakely and B.
F. Knauft ran neck and neck for sev
eral ballots, each getting four votes,
but neither could get the other needed
ballot. Clarence Robb was given three
votes on one ballot and then dropped.
Haskell, Wilson, Lamb and Harper all
received support at one time, but the
real contest for the place lay between
Albrecht, Blakely and Knauft, the for
mer finally winning out by receiving
six votes and being declared the caucus
It was 9 o'clock when the assembly
met for the transaction of business,
and the would-be parliamentarians in
the body tied themselves into such a
I knot over the saloon license applica-
I tions that it was necessary to take a
, lecess and hold a consultation in or
: der to get out of the fix. This was
I only done after the rules had been
j suspended. The license committee re
! 1 .-or ted a batch of twenty-three appli
'■ cations for liquor licenses with bonds
attached. Mr. Daly moved that the
report of the committee be adopted and
the applications granted. Mr. Craig
J objected and said he understood that
about half of the applications included
j in the report were not in shape to be
I acted upon. The time under which ob-
I jections could be filed by citizens
! against thirteen of the licenses did not
j expire until Jan. 9, and the assembly
had no right to pass on them until
after that date. Mr. Daly explained
that at a conference held in the
mayor's office some time ago it was
decided that there would be no days
of grace allowed saloonkeepers next
year and that those whose license ex
pired on January 1 would either have
to have their licenses or close up until
they were granted. There was. as he
understood it, no objections to any of
the applications, and it would be a
hardship to wait until January 9 be
fore passing on the applications, as the
saloon men would have to close up
They could be passed on and then if
any objections were filed with the city
clerk, the official could refuse to issue
the license and send the application
back to the assembly. The vote to
pass the applications was defeated by
a tie, Messrs. Craig. Reardon, Kirke
and Thompson voting against the
proposition. Mr. Krahmer was expect
ed to have cast the deciding vote to
pass the applications, tout he was out
hunting up Mr. Albrecht and did not
return until too late to be of any use
111 the matter. The vote by which the
motion was lost was reconsidered and
ten of the applications in which the
time to file objections had exoired
were passed. The fortunate ones were:
T. A. Barker, Metropolitan hotel.
Henry Bueger. 203 West Third street.

J. B. Hermann, 282 East Third street.
August Kroening, 73G Edmund street
John Straka, Wabasha and Second street.
Albert Siess, 831 Arcade street.
Mr. Daly then made a talk about th~
hardships which would be brought on
the saloonkeepers which, under the con
ference held in the mayor's office, would
be required to close up until they had
been equipped with a license. The mo
tion to grant the applications was lost
by a tie vote, and President Arosin an
nounced that, under the vote, the per
j sons making the applications would
; have to commence the red tape all over I
again. A recess was, however, taken
; and, after considerable talk, the follow
: ing applications were referred back to

Assemblyman Krahmer by this time
had returned to the council chamber
with Mr. Albrecht, who had been de-"
cided upon in the caucus as the new
member. Mr. Krahmer made a short
speech saying that he was glad the
wishes of the Third ward had been
respected and the member to succeed
him was to be chosen from that pre
cinct. He thanked the members for
their courtesy and asked for the same
kind consideration for his successor.
This was followed by the reading of
his resignation and the election of Mr.
Albrecht as his successor. Mr. Al

EXHIBITION OF X-RAYS.
Given to a Number of People Last
"It would seem as if nothing was
actually opaque, for that ray of light
has pierced eighteen feet of solid gran
ite," said Dr. Alex Donald last even
ing in the Endicott building.
The doctor, with the assistance of
Dr. O. H. Hall and S. G. Cobb, togeth
er with Prof. Anderson, of Chicago,
were exhibiting a new X-ray apparatus
to a hundred wondering people. The
above-named doctors have just received
the machine, together with another
equally wonderful contrivance for man
ufacturing pure ozone with the aid of
a powerful current of electricity, which
was also exhibitetd last evening. Sev
eral score people were allowed to in
hale absolutely pure ozone.
While the ozone machine will per
haps prove of -more benefit to hu
manity, generally speaking, the X-ray
machine attracted the greatest atten
tion. Dr. Donald showed a number of
experiments, and illustrated the ma
chine in a short lecture. The X-ray is
produced by a certain quality of light,
rather than an intensity, as is generally
supposed. The light itself is barely
strong enough to read by. yet Its pecu
liar colors and the mixture of colors
gives it a greater penetration than a
light of millions of candle power.
The doctors' first experiment was
with a young woman. The young
lady adjustetd the funnel-shaped in
strument to her eyes and held it be
fore the X-ray. In the meantime the
doctor had inserted his hand between
the ray and the young woman's eyes,
displaying to the startled looker a
ghastly hand, bare of flesh, and consist
ing of naught save bones. Inserting
his hand still further, coat and' ail. the
bones of the arm were, just as plainly
The doctor then placed a small fish
within several pieces of heavy wrap
ping paper, and the bones of the fish
were plainly discernal.le. The tip of a
fountain pen was seen plainly when
the rubber case itself was invisible. Th*
most wonderful experiment tried was
that of seeing a silver dollar through a
city directory. The doctor placed the
silver dollar between the covers fur
thest from the eyes of the spectator, ;
and on bringing the directory in front
of the Roentgen ray, the book became
practically transparent, while the sil
ver dollar was distinctly seen. The
color of the dollar was of course not
discernable, but it showed plainly In
the form of a solid round, dark-colored
disk. Coins were also seen through the
walls of a pocketbook. The lead in
a common pencil was seen when the
wood became invisible.
The doctor will soon give a private
exhibition to the members of the St.
Paul Press club.
DR. STONE WITHHOLDS HIS O. K.
Another Garbage Bill Which He
Health Commissioner Stone was pre
sent at a meeting of the ways and
means committee of the assembly yes
terday afternoon. The matter under
discussion was the bill of Fielding &
Shepley, the garbage contractoi's, for
Nnvember, amounting to $1,218.82. Dr.
Stone refused to place his name on tho
bill for the reason that the work had
not been done according to contract.
Asked for details. Dr. Stone said it
was a physical impossibility for eigh
teen teams, which the contractors were
working, to do the work properly.
The contract provided that the com
missioner of health shall countersign
the monthly bill when the work has
been done to his satisfaction. It was
not. and he refused to sign.
Assemblyman Craig called attention
to a clause in the contract which pro
vided when there was any dispute
about the work being done, it should be
referred to the council for adjudication.
Mr. Shepley, who was present, said the
work was being done in a good manner,
and the fact that there were only
about 100 complaints made in Novem
ber, showed for Itself. The committee
finally decided to recommend the al
lowance of the claim without the signa
ture of the health officer.
WANT NEW TAX LAWS.
County Auditor* Will Ask Some
A meeting of the County Auditors' associa
tion of the state was held at the Windsor
yesterday afternoon, the object of the meet
ing being the consideration of ways and
means to simplify and improve the present
system of collecting taxes.
There were about fifty present. President
Baumbach, of Alexandria, presiding. New
officers were elected, the new president being
Odin Halden, of St. Louis county, and the
secretary Henry R. King, of Itaska county.
The meeting talked over at length the matter
of possible tax legislation, the discussion
I finally resulting in the appointment of a
committee cf ten to hear from each of the
members of the association such suggestions
as be might deem advisable. The committee
is expected to report to the association today.
The committee was in session after the
close of the regular meeting, and considered
a number of resolutions, although definite
action was not taken on any of them.
Among them were resolutions favoring an
increase in the membership of boards of
county commissioners; favoring the appoint
ment of a county assessor In each county;
favoring a change In the date of publication
of the delinquent tax list, and favoring a
change In the method of payment of delin
quent taxes so that Instead of being paid to
the treasurer they shall be paid to the audi
tor of the county.
The object of the association is stated to be
not only the simplification of the work of the
offices, but an increase of revenue, and the
move Is expected to prove in the interest of
the taxpayers at large.

TWO SOUGHT DEATH
UNSUCCESSFUL EFFORTS OF ST.
PAUL MEIN IPO END THEIR
EDWARD MURHAY'S QUEER ACT
ASKS TO BE LOCKED UP AND THEN
TRIES TO STRANGLE HIM
REMETTER USED HIS KNIFE.
An Old Citiaen. Grleyed Ovetr Family
Troubles Cut His Throat— Will
Edward Murray, the only son of E.
H. Murray, one of Merriam Park's
most prominent residents, attempted to
hang himself in a cell at the central
police station shortly after 6 last even
ing. The young man was found by
Jailer Stadtfield in an unconscious con
dition with a pair of suspenders firmly
noosed about his neck. Drs. Baker and
Brimhall were immediately summoned,
and after hard work succeeded in re
cusitating the would-be suicide, when
he was sent to the county Jail for safe
keeping. Business reverses and poor
health are supposed to be responsible
for young Murray's attempt to end his
existence. After being revived by the
physicians he upbraided them for what
he termed their interference and ex
pressed regret that the effort to kill
himself had not been more successful.
Murray is a man twenty-six years old,
of prepossessing appearance and intel
ligent in his address. He has lived
with his parents at Merriam Park
for several years past, being engaged
in the real estate business with his
father, who controls large property in
terests in that portion of the city. The
firm also has an office on Fourth street,
whioh of late has been in charge of the
son. The young man was visited by
his wife yesterday afternoon and re
mained alone ire the office until 6
o'clock. At that time he closed his
place of business and went direct to
the police station, where he asked to
be locked up. He claimed to have been
drinking, but those who saw him could
notice no signs of it. He was taken
up stairs, after registering his name
on the tab as J. Murphy, and placed
in cell No. 13. Jailer Stadtfield was
suspicious of the yoiwig man's actions
and determined to watch him. A few
minutes later when he went to look
at the young fellow he found his limp
body hanging over the edge of a bunk,
held up by the suspenders. Stadtfield
reached in and broke the suspenders.
The action of Jailer Stadtfield in keep
ing his eye on Murray undoubtedly
saved the young man's life.
Murray was seen at the county jail
by a Globe reporter and expressed
regret for the humiliation which his act
would bring his parents, but declared
that he was sorry his plans had been
frustrated. He said he had gone to
the police station because he feared he
would kill himself, and that after being
there a short time he decided to do
so. Arrangements were being made, he
said, to close up the down-town real
estate business, and as this would leave
him without a situation, Murray de
clared he would have been better out
of the way. His health was poor also,
he said, and he did not care to live. E.
H. Muriay. the young man's father,
was notified of his son's attempt at
suicide at his residence, 1981 St. An
thony avenue, late iast evening, and
visited the disconsolate boy at the
« ASHED HIS THROAT.
Lorents Remetter Also Tries to Kill
An impared mind and failing health
impelled Dorentz Remetter, a pioneer
settler of St. Paul, to attempt to kill
himself yesterday morning by cutting
his throat. The deed was done with an
ordinary table knife, evidently sharp
ened for the purpose. The desperate
man gashed his throat in a frightful
manner. The injury with the loss of
blood suffered by the old man, renders
his chances for recovery very slight.
When found, he was crouched upon a
coal pile in a small woodshed in the
rear of No. 448 St.' Peter street, where
he has lived for -nearly forty years.
The central patrol wagon conveyed the
would-be suicide to the city hospital,
where his condition Was pronounced
extremely critical. ; The man was un
conscious and it Was necessary to in
sert a silver tube "in the windpipe to
facilitate his breathing.
Remetter is sixty-seven years of
age and the possessor' of an estate
valued at $40,000. He owns the hotel
where he tried to "take his life, which
he conducted for a number of years
under the name of- the Vater Rein
hotel, and the house and lot immediate
ly adjoining. He has no relatives in
this country, and his lonely condition,
with a complication of domestic diffi
culties of long standing, are thought
to be responsible for his unbalanced
mental condition. Recently Mr. Re
metter has rented the hotel to other
parties, but has retained rooms at his
old homestead. His strange demeanor
has been remarked by friends for some
time, and last fall John S. Grode and
L, Watry were appointed guardians for
the old man by the probate court.
The family troubles which so worried
the old gentleman began twenty
seven years ago when his wife was
committed to the insane asylum at
Re Chester, where she has since remain
ed, still physically well, but a mental
wreck. It is said that the commit
ment of the woman was made when
there was some doubt about her In
sanity, and that when the husband
endeavored a year later to have her
released, he found she had beyond a
doubt become a maniac after her con
finement. This preyed upon his mind,
and later in life when two grown
daughters were taken from him by
death, he became inoi'Ose and melan
choly. Last Thursday his guardians
had him examined by Dr. Stam and it
was thought his condition was improv
ing with a fair chance of his regaining
his mental condition. In the course of
a couple of clays, however, he seemed
to grow worse and it was the intention
to have him again examined yester
day, but the plan was thwarted by
the desperate attempt upon his life.
H. A. Stewart, w*ho at present con
ducts the saloon and hotel, failed to
find Mr. Remetter in his room at 8
o'clock yesterday morning and fearing
something was wrong* notified the
police of his disappearance. Search was
then made about the premises, and
about 10:30 the old man was found in
the woodshed, bleeding copiously. Blood
was spattered on the walls showing
that he had probably stood up while
slashing at his throat and had only
sank to the ground when weakened
by the loss of blood. The wound was
large and hung apart in a ghastly
manner. An operation was performed
at the hospital by Dr. Wheaton last
night in hopes of saving the old man's
life. Remetter was a member of the
German Catholic Aid association in
which he was insured for $1,000, and
also had a bank deposit of $4,000 in
1 1.. — —
cash. Recently he is said to have made
a will under which a local German
church was the sole beneficiary.
GRANTING SALOON LICENSES.
Assemblyman Daly's Opinion of Rev,
What promised to be a long and
tedious meeting of the assembly com
mittee on license was cut short yester
day by the action of a number of the
applicants for saloon licenses. The
Christian Citizens' league had filed ob
jections against the bondsmen for M,
A. Donnelly. Yesterday when the ap
plication was reached, a surety com
pany bond had been substituted. The
application of E. L. Murphy for a
license had been withdrawn. Blixt &
Jchnson, to whom the league objected
also withdrew their application, F. c!
Eggert, of 484 Robert street against
whom objection had been filed on the
ground that he had been convicted in
April last, and fined $20 for keeping
his saloon open, did not appear before
the committee. Assemblyman Arosin
thought it best to take up the matter
in the committee rather than in the
council, if there was to be any Investi
gation of the charges. Mr. Reardon
said if Eggert had been convicted, there
was no right either in the committee
or council to grant him a license. Mr.
Doty thought, as a lawyer, that the
council was the proper body to hear
objections, but if the committee decid
ed to listen to the evidence, he was
ready to furnish it in this particular
case at this time. The objection to the
application of Eggert was that he had
been convicted In the police court of
having violated the liquor law, and
the league also charged and were ready
to prove that he had violated the law
at other times, but had not been con
victed. He called attention to the ob
jectors, Messrs. Cowgill and Morgan,
but was interrupted by Assemblyman
Daly, who said he presumed Mr. Cow
gill was all right, but that the other
objector in his opinion, was an "eccles
iastical tramp and should be driven
from the city." Assemblyman Arosin
again announced that in his opinion the
committee was the proper place to
hear the evidence to be brought out
and that the time of the council should
not be taken up by such matters. Eg
gert, the city clerk announced, had not
been notified of the meeting, and the
matter was laid over without date.
In the case of Charles Ernst, of 468
Fort street, the league objected to Leo
pold Hilger, one of the bondsmen. Mr.
Hilger appeared before the committee
and satisfied them and Mr. Doty that
he was qualified to gc on the bond. R.
A. Mauer, of 452 Sibley street, announc
ed that he* would have a surety com
pany bond prepared. Albert Seiss was
another saloonkeeper to whom the
league objected on account of the
bondsmen, but Mr. Doty stated they
had been misinformed and that the
bondsmen were all right.
The committee passed on twenty
three applications for licenses, among
them being that of F. G. Brady for a
license at 345 Wabasha street. Assem
blyman Craig wanted to know if the
application was for the place now
kept by Murphy, and was informed
that it was. Mr. Brady said he had
bought the saloon and the bill of sale
was on record. If that was not suffi
cient, he was prepared to make an
affidavit of the fact. He said he was
anxious to sell the place and offered
Mr. Reardon a commission of $500, if
he would find him a purchaser. The
application of Noyes Bros. & Cutler for
a wholesale and retail license was also
acted upon favorably.
ONE OF THE REGI'LARS.
Feeney Sent Back to the Workhouse
for Another Term.
Patrick Feeney, arrested by Officer
Casey, Monday, for an alleged attempt
to rob Miss Mary Johnson on Sibley
street, was sent to the workhouse by
• Judge Twqrjjjf yesterday for ninety
days on the charge of assault and bat
tery. The charge against Feeney was
changed, in-.view of the fact that Miss
Johnson had no money in her posses
sion at the time of the assault. Feeney
only regained liberty last Saturday
after serving a ninety days' sentence
at the workhouse for larceny. The po
lice records sihow that he has served
180 of the last 190 days at the work
MTORMKK THE MAN
Who Died at the Hospital of Acute
The stranger who died at the city
hospital Monday from the effects of
alcoholic poisoning was, as told in the
Globe yesterday, Thomas McCormick.
He was identified yesterday by State
Prison Agent Whlttier. McCormick
was sentenced from Hennepin county
for three years on the charge of bur
glary in the third degree. Good be
havior reduced McCormick's time of
confinement to eighteen months, which
was up Dec. 22, when he was given his
discharge. McCormick is said to have
been a burglar of ability in his partic
ular line, being known as a "porch
climber." The dead man is supposed
to have relatives in Grand Rapids,
Mich., though, if his body is not
claimed today, it will be buried at the
expense of the county.
REED WASN'T THERE.
One of the Alleged Bnrftlnrs Proves
George Murphy and Charles McCann,
two members of the alleged gang of
burglars who raided the Rudawsky
residence on Canada street recently,
were yesterday held to the grand jury
without bail on the charge of burglary.
Daniel Reed was also tried on the same
charge, and though the case was con
cluded, he was granted a continuance
until today. It appeared from the evi
dence that Reed was not with the
burglars on their raids, but that he re
mained in the house on Temperance
street where he was arrested in pos
session of the stolen property. Reed
addressed the court on his own behalf,
and declared that he knew nothing
of the expeditions and begged to be
discharged. A formal motion to this
effect was made by his attorney, and
Judge Twohy took the matter under
consideration until today.
WORK ON REORGANIZARTION.
Bank of Minnesota Committee Look.
Ing Over the Business.
The committee appointed at the re
cent meeting of the officers and direc
tors of the Bank of Minnesota to take
steps looking to the reorganization of
the bank, has already begun its work.
E. W. Peet, one of the members of the
committee, said yesterday:
"We have commenced the examina
tion of the books, to which the re
ceivers kindly allow us to have access,
but we have not progressed far enough
to enable us to form any definite opin
ion yet as to the situation."
Receiver Seymour, when seen at the
Bank of Minnesota yesterday after
noon, said that there was a large
amount of detail work to be gotten
out of the way before the receivers
cculd prepare the schedules. Nearly
all the bank's clerks are employed in

GHAJJGE Of SEASON
MINNEAPOLIS SPORTSMEN CALL
UPON THE FISH AND GAME
WITH A NUMBER OF REQUESTS.
COMMISSIONERS FROM MICHIGAN
AXD WISCONSIN HERE TO CON
MIXXESOTA GAME PROTECTORS.
Wind l'p of the Year's Work of the
Commission Will Be Accoiu
The state game and fish commission
put in yesterday, and will spend today,
attending the last business meeting to
be held this year. The commission will
wind up pending matters just as if the
members whose terms expire do not
expect to be reappointed. There was '
a full attendance yesterday, and the
commission was honored by the pres
ence of two commissioners from Michi
gan and Wisconsin. These were Com
missioners Osburne, a Sault Ste. Marie
editor, for Michigan, and Ellarson, of
Madison, for Wisconsin. These gentle
men were present to aid in securing
the passage of such laws as will enable
the authorities of the three states to, 1
co-operate in preventing the shipping
of game killed out of season in either
state to or across the other. The com
missioners believe that if they can se
cure laws that will allow the author
ities in Wisconsin to seize game illeg
ally killed in Minnesota or Michigan,
and vice versa, and by which the au
thorities of the three states can co-op
erate in their efforts to catch and pun
ish the poachers, they will have taken
a very long step toward the game pro
tection problem. North Dakota and
Minnesota are already in co-operation,
and lowa will join the procession, so if
the plans of the commissioners carry,
they will have a large section of terri
The visiting commissioners were most,
enthusiastic, and It was resolved to do
everything possible to bring about the
desired result. Mr. Osborne urged the
adoption in this state of a law taxing
each resident sportsman $1 a gun and
each non-resident $25 for the purpose of
adding to the revenue of the commis
sion. Such a law, he said, was in ef
fect in Michigan and worked to the
perfect satisfaction of the commission.
Both the visitors left for their homes
A delegation of twenty, representing
the sportsmen of Minnesota, waited on
the commission with several requests
which were received, but which have
not yet been acted upon. They are
that the dear season be made from
Nov. 10 to 30, instead of from Nov. 1 to
20, as at present; that the partridge
and ruffed grouse season begin Oct. 1,
instead of a month later, as ;ibw, and|
finally, the Flour City Nini rod's ask
that the spring shooting- of ducks be
stopped entirely. It has been repeat
edly urged that game in so vast a
territory as that under the jurisdiction
of the Minnesota commission could not
be protected except by the employment
of as many wardens as there are sol
diers in the United States army. To
the novice in such work this theory
seems reasonably correct, but people
living in the game country know bet
ter, and Sam Fullerton appreciates the
fact. The chief thing necessary to en
forcement of the law even now is an
effort tc enforce it on the part of the
executive agent, and determination to
inflict severe penalties for poaching
on the part of the courts.
"Tim" Byrnes, attorney for the com
mission, is busy making such amend
ments to the game and fish laws as
will add to their efficacy. For exam
ple, it is understood that steps will be
taken to make a law stopping the sale
in open market of black bass and
brook trout, owing to their present
scarcity, and also to the difficulty In
propogating them artificially. Fur
ther than this, the commission seeks to
have the laws read "for the protection
and preservation of game and fish,''
leaving out "in Minnesota," thus wid
ening the scope of authority.

Get Strength, Vigor, Clear Complex

Patent Medicine, But in Nature's
Any honest physician will tell you
that there is but one way to get in

Nature has but one way to increase
flesh, strength and vigor of mind and
body, and that is through the stonnach
by wholesome food well digested. There
is no reason or common sense in any
other method whatever.
People are thin, run down, nervous,
pale and shaky in their nerves, simply
because their stomachs are weak.
They may not think they have dys
pepsia, but the fact remains that they
do not ea.t enough food or what they
eat is not quickly and properly digested
as it should be.
Dr. Harlandson says the reason is
because the stomach lacks certain di
gestive acids and peptones, and de
ficient secretion Of gastric juice.
Nature's remedy in such cases is
to supply what the weak stomach
lacks. There are several good prepara
tions which will do this, but none so
readily as Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets,
which are designed especially for all
stomach troubles, and which cure all
digestive weakness on the common
sense plan of furnishing the digestive
principles which the stomach lacks.
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets give per
fect digestion. First effect is to in
crease the. appetite, and increased vigor,
added flesh, pure blood, and strength
of nerve and muscle is the perfectly
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets is the
safest tonic known and will cure any
form of stomach trouble except cancer
