William Banholzer, member pi the
board of puiblic works, and proprietor
of the North Star brewery, died at his
residence, 690 Stewart avenue yester
day noon. The death of Mr. Banholzer
was not unexpected, his physicians
having announced a week or so ago
that his demise was but the question
of a short time. Six weeks ago Mr.
WIL.I,IAM It WIK-: /.Kit.
Banholzer was taken sick and at thy?
time it was supposed his illness was
not of a serious nature. Dr. C. A.
Wheaton was called in and pronounced
the malady diabetes, and with but lit
tle chance fur recovery. The patient
received the best of medical treatment
and care, but the disease was so far
advanced and of such a nature that
but little could be done. Since he was
taken sick Mr. Banholzer was corifinr-d
to his bed, although at times he wu
able to sit up for short times. As
usual with the disease the patient at
times appeared better, only to have a
relapse which left him in a much weak
er condition. T,ast Saturday he became
unconscious and from that time until
yesterday noon, when he breathed his
l^st, ho remained in a state of coma,
unable to recognize his wife or mem
bers of the family.
The funeral will take place Wednes.
day afternoon at 3 o^clook from the
family residence at C9O Stewart avenue
and will be under the auspices <jf Co

the deceased was a member. The Jun.

member, will take part in the services.
Interment will be at Oakland. Mr.

Mr. Kan'holzer has been; prominent !n
Democratic politics for years. He was
defeated for alderman in the Fifth
ward in ISBB, by Walter Hock, but in
]890 he was one of the eight, aldermen
at large elected at the spring election.
In 1891 the Bell charter went into ef
fect and the aldermen at large then
serving were deposed from office. Mr,
Ran'holzer was, however, appointed by
Mayor Smith as one of the nine mem
bers of the assembly under the Bell
charter and served until June, 1892.
In the spring of that year he was a
candidate on the Democratic ticket for
city treasurer. He was defeated by
Conrad W. Miller, owing to a three
cornered fight caused by Joseph Dreis
making the race as an independent
candidate. He was appointed to tho
board of public works in March, 1895,
by Mayor Smith, which position ho
held at the time of his death.
Maj. T. M. Newson, in his pen pic

Paul, has this to say of William Ban
"A large young man is Mr. Banholzer. all

The celebration of the Glorious
Fourth yesterday was beyond doubt
the most quiet occasion of the kind In
the history of the city. The fact that
Independence Day fell upon Sum day,
together with the Saturday half-holi
day and general observance of the oc
casion on Monday, furnished an oppor
tunity for nearly a three-days' vaca
tion among the people of the city, of
which they availed 'themselves for lake
or country trips of more than ordinary
length. The prevailing disposition to
escape from the noise and turmoil of
a Fourth of July in the city manifest
ed itself Saturday, when large numbers
sought the lakes and country resorts.
Sunday there was a greater exodus,
and by 10 o'clock yesterday morning
the numerous picnics, steamboat ex
cursions and suburban retreats had al
most depopulated the city. Those who
could not got away remained in town
apprehensive of the wear and tear
which their nerves would be called
upon to undergo, but were agreeably
disappointed, for things in general were
quite unlike former Fourth of Julys.
To be sure, there was an abundance
of noise, hordes o.f small boys venting
their exuberant patriotism, and many
of their elders engaged In the same
diversion, but there was a noticeable
absence of the expected turmoil which
generally characterizes America's natal
day. In the evening when the crowds
which had deserted the city began to
arrive there was something of the old
time enthusiasm manifested in the dis
charge of fireworks throughout the
city, but the heavy down pour of rain
interrupted the celebration, and the
evening, too, was comparatively undis
Many citizens were patriotic enough
to display the national flag, but the
banner was conspicuous t>y its absence
from the staff of the city hall.
The most remarkable features of the
day were the absence of fires and the
comparatively few injuries among the
juvenije population. From midnight
Saturday night to 12 o'clock last even
ing there had been but one alarm of
fire, though Chief Jackson had recalled
all vacations among the members of
the department in order to have every
available man at his post oC duty. At
X o'clock last evening a firecracker,
which had lodged in the portico of J.
F. Lawless' residence, 420 Woodward
avenue, started a small blaze, which
was, however, extinguished with mere
nominal damages by the chemical en
gine. Natural!/; wit-h 30 many young
Americans engaged for nearly twenty
four hours in handling powder and ex
plosives in all forms, there ere some
accidents, though the number is far
below that of former years. The "mud"
gun, the miniature cannon and the
giant firecrackers, however, had their
victims, and nearly a dozen children
suffered more or leas serious injuries.
Several youngsters met accidents not
due to their patriotism. Following is
a list of those reported injured dur
ing the day:
CTJNIFF, AGNES. TM Mississippi street,
twenty-two months old. run over by wagon;
CRANSHAW, MELVILLE, fifteen years
old, 132 East Isabel street; fare slightly
M'GUIRE, DANIEL, 161 East Congress

right side of face seriously burned.
MARSH, ROLLIK. West Seventh and Ex

burned and right eye probably injured.

ten years old: thumb and portion of palm
of right hand blown off.

Little Agnes Cuniff was running
across the street from her home to
meet her father, when she stumbled
and fell. A bakery wagon belonging
to L. Abramson, of BC3-86") Payne ave
nue, driven by Cliafies Orman. was ap
proaching ami the driver did not see
the prostrate baby, Mr. Cuniff saw
the danger and called to Orrnan as did
several others, but Orman evidently
did not bear them and before the child j
could regain her feet the rear wheel
of the wagon had passed over her
back. The child was picked up un
conscious and taken to her home, while
it is claimed that Orman whipped up
his hoise and disappeared. The sign
on the wagon, however, led to his
identity. Dr. Uobiliard attended th<>
injured child. No broken bones were
found, but it is feared the little one
is injured internally. Orman stated
at Hie central police station that tht
ruise of fire-crackers so worried his
hurse that his attention was taken up
with the animal and that he neither
saw the fallen child nor heard the j
shouts of those who had tried to warn
him. He denied hurrying away and
says he knmv nothing of the accident
until he reached his place of business.

which he had lighted, was not going
off, and stooped to examine into the

muzzle of the cannon the charge ex
ploded, suddenly, throwing a quantity
of powder into his face. The grains of
powder were picked from the boy's
flesh and it is not thought that he is
at all seriously hurt.
Daniel McGuire, the son of D. H. Mc-
Guire, was loading a miniature cannon,
when one of his playmates threw a
lighted firecracker into a can of
powder by his side. In the explosion,
which followed, young McGuire was
badly burned about the wrists and the
right side of his face. Dr. Darling
attended the injured youth, and after
dressing his hurts, was of the opinion
that his injuries, while serious, were
not of a dangerous nature. The lad
was resting comfortably last evening.
Little Rollie Marsh tried to set off

burned slowly and the boy thought
the explosion too long delayed. Pick

day morning. He was adjusting the
fuse when a companion, threw a match
on the can causing it to explode.
Young Roeller was rendered uncon

at Rondo and Louis streets, where he
was attended by Dr. R. H. Merrill.
The muscles of his right arm were
laid bare while his left was badly
bruised. His face was slightly singed
with powder. It was found necessary
to take twelve stitches in his right
arm. After his arms had been dressed
he was carried to his home.
SEATTI.B WANTS IT.
Chancellor Thorbnrn Sa>» it Wants
the Kpworth Loa«n«.
Rev. C. R. Thoburn, of Tacoma, ar
rived in the city yesterday, over th--i
Northern Pacific road, en route to To
ronto. Mr. Thoburn is chancellor of
the Puget sound university and one
of the able young men in the Metho
dist ranks in the Pacific Northwest.
He is the advance guard of the dele
gations from that section of the eoun •
try to the Epworth League, which will
hold its biennial international conven
tion at Toronto, commencing July 15.
He goe-3 ahead of the others to open
headquarters and take preliminary
steps to secure the convention of 1899
for Seattle. There will be three other
cities looking for the next convention,
the most prominent in the race being
Omaha and Indianapolis. Mr. Thoburn
is very much in earnest about secur
ing the convention for Seattle, and ex
plained that it would be of consider
able interest to the entire Northwest.
In the neighborhood of 30,000 delegates
will attend the convention at Toronto
thla nvmth, and if the next one should
be held in Seattle it would probably be
more largely attended. Mr. Thoburn
reports business as picking up in the
Northwest There is an outlook for a
large crop this year. Times in that
section of the country, he say's, are
much better than in the central states
and have been for the past six months.
The Oriental trade is making great
strides and doing much to help out the
country. The imports at Tacoma for
the past few months have been rome
thing like $4,000,000, principally of tea
and silks, all of which have been
shipped over the Northern Pacific
through St. Paul.
As to politics everything had been
free silver, but in Washington the
fusfonistfl were breaking up. Gov.
Rogers, elected on the fusion ticket,
had, f'ince he assumed charge, dis
pleased the ■"mkldle-of-the-road" Pop
ulists, and there was something of a
fight in the ranks. Gov. Rogers had
held that there was a new party com
posed of the Democrats, silver Repub
licans and Populists, and practically
had Ignored the Populists in making
his appointments. This and his stick
ing closely to the civil service rules
had made him anything but popular
among the rank and file Of the three
parties making up the fusionists. The
talk about the Debs colony starting in
Washington, Mr. Thoburn said, had
not been taken very seriously by the
residents of that state. In fact, ibout
all that had been said regarding it was
the fear that such an evemt might be
possible. There was great scarcity of
farm laborers, and papers in the vicin
ity of Seattle and Tacoma were ad
vertising for men to g,i into the har
vest field. In ca.se there should be a
consolidation of the Northern Pacific
and Great Northern roads, as had been
anticipated and talked about, Taeoma
would undoubtedly be the gainer, as
the Northern Pacific had interests
which could not be lost sight of. Dur
ing his stay in St. Paul Chancellor
Thoburn will be the guest of his
cousin, B. S. Cowen.

JUDGES TIVOHVS DECISION,
j \\]>;t( He Siiys A limit the Hotel Hun.
Judge Twohy yesterday decided tho
hotel runners' ordinance, under which
several aiTests were made last week,
invalid, as anticipated in the G 1o b o
of Friday. The decision is based up >n
the fact that the court finds that if
the ordinance is enforced, as at pres
ent existing, it would practically des
troy the business of hotel runners, as
it confines them to a space immediately
in front of and not closer to the union
depot than thirty feet. Charles Kerst
\nd Oscar Armstrong, arrested on the
charge of violating tho ordinance, were
accordingly discharged. In a memo
' randum Judge Twohy says:
The charter provision which authorizes the
common council to legislate upon this subject
Is subdivision 17. Municipal Code of St. Paul,
1593 (page 42). and roads as follows: "Tho
common council shall have tho power and
authority to restrain and regulate porters
and also runners, agents and solicitors for
i the boats, vessels, stages, cars, public houses
; and other establishments."
It is the law. in my opinion, that the
I power to restrain and regulate a trade or
i business does not give authority to prohibit it.
Tho council may adopt any regulations in
reference to and impose any restrictions upon
; these occupations, or the persons engaged
i therein, which may be proper to prevent any
j nuisance or Inconvenience, and to provide
against evils resulting therefrom. Hut to
1 prohibit or suppress a trade or business la
; not to regulate it. To be regulated the trade
: or business must subsist.
The charter provision referred to recognizes
and nssuniiHs the existence of "runnel's,"
; "agents" and "solicitors " and that they
I may pursue their occupation as such, with
in the limits of the city.
The power given in the charter is simply
to regulate and restrain and not to forbid
their being carried on or to destroy them.

The testimony in this case leaves no doubt
that the practical effect ot Ordinance Ni>.
1893, if sustained, would be to prohibit with
in the limits of the city the business or occu
pation of runners, agents and solicitors for
the steamship agencies, hotels, etc.
The police officers connected with t'le eas<\
and the city attorney prosecuting it. admit
that this would be the result. The ordinance
confines them to a place on Sibley street too
far removed from the course of travel to and
from the union depot to enable them to per
form services of any value for their em
ployers, and It absolutely forbids their so
liciting at or near any of the other depots
within the city.
For this reason I consider said ordinance
unreasonable, unauthorized and void.
