A. B. STICKNEY TELLS THE ORIGIN
OF THE MINNESOTA PACKING

GREAT WESTERN PRESIDENT SUP
POSED HIM TO BE A MYTH
GIVEN THE SOLE MANAGEMENT.

Some important testimony was elic
ited before Judge Brill yesterday in
the case of the Minnesota Packing and
Provision company. A. 13. Stickney,
the president of the Chicago Grtat
Western company was ou the si aid
all day, Mr. Kellogg coniucfetr_g the
direct examination. 7dr. Stickney or
ganized the Union Stockyards com
pany. Prior to the organization, Mr.
Sticknev said, there was no market for
live stock. After looking over various
localities, Mr. Stickney decided to
establish a company at South St. Paul,
inasmuch as the water supply was ade
quate, the sewage could be taken care
of at small expense, and ice could be
put up at 12% cents a ton. According
ly the Union Stockyards company was
organized, and its plant established.
Mr. Stickney testified that in 188S the
Union Stockyards company entered
into a contract with Fowler Bros.,
whereby the company agreed to build
a packing plant. The building erected
was subsequently occupied by the Min
nesota Packing and Provision com
pany. It was understood that Few ler
Bros, were to furnish the plans and
specifications, and the building was to
be constructed under their supervi
sion, the stockyards company paying
over $600,000 for such construction.
Fowler Bros, began packing about Jan.
1, 1888. Three months later they or
ganized a company with a capital
stock of $500,000. Of this amount Fowler
Bros, were to subscribe $415,000. The
remaining $85,000 was subscribed by
Mr. Stickney, who put in $30,000, $10,000
of which was for the Fowlers; Oppen
heim & Kalman. $20,000; Henry A.
Davis, who was manager for Fowler

Saturday Mght, first time here,
A SOUTHERN GENTLEMAN.
"«iSff- THE 6IFFEN NEILL CO.
Bros., $25,000, and Gregory Hunnlford,
$10,000; Messrs. Stickney, Oppenheim
and Kalman alone paid' for their stock,
so Mr. Stickney testified.
Continuing Mr. Stickney said that
after the plant had been in operation
for nearly a year, he met Anson Fow
ler on the train coming to St. Paul, who
informed him that they intended to dis
continue the running of the plant. Mr.
Stickney asked that such action be de
ferred until an investigation could be
had. The request was acceded to. The
investigation revealed that Robert D.
Fowler, Henry Davis and Gregory had
not paid for their stock. Fowler ac
cording to Stickney's testimony had
transferred to the stock yard's com
pany some real estate which the Fow
lers owned, at a price between $50,000
and $60,000, and some real estate stocks
still owned, at a price between $10,000
and $15,000. It also appeared that the
Anglo-American Provision company,
of Chicago, with which Fowler Bros,
were idetified,had advanced about $30,
--000, making about $100,000 which re
presented the entire payment made by
Fowler. Stickney declared that in con
sequence the company had done busi
ness on borrowed money and instead
of the Fowlers paying in the agreed
amount of capital, to wit, 415,000, they
did business on the credit of the An
glo-American company which they
Then came a reorganization. Mr.
Stickney testified that he paid in $50,
--000 and that Oppenheim & Kalman
and William Dawson and Andrew Fow
ler subscribed $50,000 more.
About this time Henry Davis, whose
management was deemed unsatisfac
tory, was removed and Frank Clifton
was appointed in his place. Mr. Clifton,
together with Mr. Kalman, who was
president, managed the company in an
entirely satisfactory manner until Oc
to-ber,lS93, jvha# Philip Shufeldt was
was given the sole management.
Mr. Stickney then related in response
to Mr. Kellogg's questions, the account
of his visit to England in 1893, where
he went to raise $120,000 on the bonds
of the company, and the negotiations
that were entered into in London.
In 1895, so Mr. Stickney testified, Mr.
Shufeldt wanted to rent the Dakota
house. Mr. Shufeldt represented to
Mr. Stickney, so the latter said, that
the management of the Dakota house
would be entirely separate from and
not in any way connected with that of
the Minnesota Packing and Provision
company, and that its officers would
be other men,
Mr. Stickney was positive that Mr.
Shufeldt did not say that he would sell
his meats to the Minnesota Packing
company, but had assured him, Mr.
Stickney said, that the management
would be separate and distinct.
Shortly before court adjourned for
the day, Mr. Kellogg closed his direct
examination, and Mr. Squires began
the cross-examination of Mr. Stickney,
going over the ground covered by the
plaintiff. In the course of the cross
examination, Mr. Stickney said that
while he had heard of Mr. Shufeldt be
fore 1893, he had regarded ■ him as a
myth, until he finally met the gentle
Court adjourned until 10 a. m. today,
but the cross-examination of Mr. Stick

Two Alleged Infringements Heard

count but one.

Several Members Go to Dulntli to In

and Merchandise There.
The state board of equalization left
last evening on the 11 o'clock train, over
the Eastern Minnesota, for Duluth, to
make an investigation of the shedules
of the stocks and merchandise, similar
to the examination of the stocks of
goods carried in St. Paul and Minne
apolis, which was made several days
ago. They will return tomorrow morn
ing. Several members of the board did
no go on the trip, but there was not a
quorum left to transact business today.
The Ramsey county assessments
came In for the attention of the board
yesterday, and there were four vigor
ous raises, of which the most impor
tant was a raise of 50 per cent in the
assessment of moneys, other than
those of bankers, brokers and stock
jobbers, which covers money on de
posit, etc. The assessor's returns of
this item were $223,832, and this will
now be increased to $335,748.
A raise of 25 per cent was made in
item 22, covering credits, other than
those of bankers, brokers and stock
jobbers. The assessment of this was
placed at $767,416, which is now increas
ed to $959,255,
The Ramsey county saloon assess
ment was raised 50 per cent. The as
sessor's returns were $82,052, but is now
$123,078. Last year it was $119,000. As
sessor Seng opposed this as being un
just, saying that the saloons were car
rying very little stock, ordering their
goods from day to day as needed — but
the raise went, just the same.
Under item 23, the board raised the
assessment of bonds and stock, other
than bank stocks, 70 per cent. This had
been turned in at $216,774, and the raise
wculd bring it up to $368,513; last year
it was $375,599. There was a lively
discussion over this raise, which was
made at the suggestion of Capt. Hack
ett, the member of the board from St.
Paul. Assessor Seng maintained that
it was a great injustice, as many
stocks and bonds which had been valu
able property a year ago, were now
worse than worthless, especially where
they involved a double liability, as in
these cases a man would actually be
ass-essed for what he owed. It was
"given out cold" by a member of the
board that this change would be recon

Minnesota Savings Bank Bondsmen

The suit brought by Ramsey county
against the bondsmen of the defunct
Minnesota Savings bank, in the dis
trict court, to recover $2,688.14 of the
county's funds which were deposited
with that institution at the time it
failed, will be contested. The bonds
men, who are Joseph Ehrmantraut Jr.,

Thomas F. Conroy, Herman L. Schade
and Flora Doriden, administratrix of
the estate of the late Christian J. Dor

er with notice to that effect. The
The amount of the bond is $10,000, and
the defendants claim that it is worth
less because it was illegally drawn.
After the bondsmen of the Bank of
Minnesota compromised the claims
against the institution held by the city
and the county, suit was brought
against the bondsmen Interested in the
action now pending in the hope that
they would follow, the example set in
the* Bank of Minnesota cases. Then
came up the question of the validity of
their bond, aad upon this will now
hinge the question' whether the county
can hold the bondsmen of the savings
bank liable for the -deposit of its funds
which were tl«d up by the failure.

Loni*- Solomon Fails to Properly
Bury a Body.
Another violation of the ordinance
regulating the interment of dead bod
ies has been discovered by the health
department and the offender placed
under arrest. The offense was com
mitted in the Russian Brotherhood
cemetery, where, a few weeks ago, the
health department was obliged to in
terfere in order to prevent an improp
er burial. The ordinance requires that
all bodies be encased in a coffin or
wooden box before being placed un
derground, and that all graves shali
be at least six feet in depth. The cus
tom of a brotherhood of Russian Jews
in the city has been to bury its dead at
an insufficient depth, some of the bod
ies being intered not more than twelve
inches under the surface of the ground.
On Monday last Louis Solomon, an
undertaker whose services are sought
by the Russian Jews, obtained a burial
permit at the health office. It was for
the interment of the body of a child.
Health Inpector Sinks, to whom Sol
omon applied, declares that he cau
tioned Solomon to put the body in a
coffin or other substantial receptacle
and to be sure and have the grave,
dug six feet deep. Yesterday Mr.
Sinks visited the cemetery, and, upon
investigating, he discovered that the
body had been buried without a coffin,
and that it lay scarcely twelve inches
under the surface.
In consequence Mr. Sinks swore out
a warrant for Solomon's arrest, and
the latter was apprehended and taken
to the police court yesterday morning,
where his case was continued until
next Monday. In the meantime the
authorities will see that the body Is
properly interred today.
Mr. Solomon declares that he is not
responsible for the depth of the grave,
as he was hired by two officials of the
Russian Brotherhood to dig the grave
to just the depth it is.
The two officials referred to, B.
Broustein and F. Katz, assured the
health officers yesterday that they or
dered Solomon to dig the grave to the
depth required by law and to bury the
BELL'S ACTION O. K.
Romseau Connty Attorney Indorsed
by Gov. Clough.
They are having a jolly little time up
in Roseau county, and it does not ap
pear to have been improved by the ac
tion of Gov. Clough in the matter.
Last winter County Attorney R. J.
Bell came to St. Paul and labored long
and diligently in the interests of the
Roseau county relief bill, and it is al
leged that he collected his railroad fare
frcm the county after it and his per
diem had been paid by the Woodmen
of America. At any rate the grand
jury indicted him for misconduct in of
fice and the charges were laid before
The latter has now written Bell a let
ter in which he says that he has care
fully investigated the charges and
fii.ds them not sustained by the evi
ence; also that there is nothing in
Bell's conduct which would warrant
any action on his part.
Of course Mr. Bell and his friends
are pleased at this termination, but not
so the opposition. The latter say that
the charges will be renewed at the
next session of the grand jury, and
they also charge the governor with
having violated the law by not provid
ing for a commission to investigate the
matter instead of taking it into his own
It appears that there is a factional
feeling in Roseau county and that this
is the outgrowth of it. Mr. Bell is not
only the county attorney but also pub
lisher of the Roseau Times.

CUT DOWN IN YOUTH.
Miss Viola M. Kipp Passes Away
Miss Viola M. Kipp, oldest daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. Orrin Kipp. died at
1:15 yesterday morning of acute tuber
culosis after an illness of only ten
days. Miss Kipp, an exceptionally
bright and pretty girl of twenty-one,
was well known and popular among
St. Paul's younger set. She graduated
from St. Catherine's school a year
ago last June, and in the fall of that
year entered the state university at
Minneapolis. About two weeks ago
she returned from a trip to Duluth
with a slight cold, which gradually
developed into tuberculosis. The fu
neral services will take place at the
home of her parents, 856 Dayton ave
nue, at 4 o'clock Friday afternoon. The
remains will be taken in a special car
to Henderson, Minn., for burial Sat
urday morning. They will be accom
panied by members of the family and
about twenty of Miss Kipp's class
mates at the state university.

Secretary Hutchins, of the Relief society,
writes to the Globe:
We are looking for James R. Mealy, col
ored, aged thirty, height 5 feet 6 inches,
weight 135 pounds, brown eyes, black hair,
who a few days ago was sent to us by Dr.
Senkler to assist on his way home to Boston,
Mass. We at once wrote his wife and she
sent money to pay his transportation, but in
the meantime he secured admission to the
city hospital, but only remained a day or so,
and returned, as we supposed, to the Sher
man house, where he had formerly worked.
When the funds came for his transportation
we endeavored to flnd him, but could get no
trace of him. *
This morning we are in possession or a let
ter from his wife stating that she has re
ceived a telegram that he is dead. He is a
member of the New England Registry Bureau
of Boston, and wears a nickel plated badge
to identify him, the number of the badge
being 4261. Any information regarding this
James R. Mealy will be thankfully received
and forwarded to his wife.
POPULATION IS LIGHT.
Fewer People in the Workhonse
Than for Years.
Secretary H. H. Hart paid an official
visit to the St. Paul city workhouse
Tuesday, and in his report, yesterday,

The majority of the men are employed

Secretary Hart says:
"The evil of repeated short senten

fort to jump from the car, but fortu
nately ho one was injured either in the
stampede or the collision, though a
rumor, almost immediately proved in
correct, was current to the effect that
Frederick Malone, the driver of the
wagon, had been thrown over the
bridge into the river.
The accident occurred shortly before
7 o'clock, when a south-bound car be
came unmanageable almost at the en
trance of the bridge and slid down
the incline. The brake held to som?
extent and kept the car from gaining
a dangerous momentum, but could not
bring it to a stop. Frederick Malone,
a farmer living in Dakota county, was
crossing the bridge in the same di
rection with a load of cabbages and
was caught in the narrow part of the
bridge toward the West side. Some
of the passengers on the car saw the
collision coming and jumped from the
rear platform. Pedestrians called to
Malone, but before he could escape the
wagon was struck and jammed against
the railing separating the foot path
from the driveway. Malone was
thrown from his seat, while the still
moving car ploughed the wagon
through several sections of iron up
rights and rails, badly damaging the
vehicle and cutting the horse about
the body. The car did not leave the
track and, when it was learned that
Malone had not been seriously hurt by
his fall, proceeded on its journey.
Evidence Was Weak.
John Coyne, arrested for the alleged theft
of $29 from a fellow hostler with whom ha
slept at a Selby avenue livery stable. wa3
tried in the police court yesterday and dis
charged. It was the opinion of Judge Orr,
at the conclusion of the evidence for the
prosecution, that a case had not been made
out and he ordered the prisioner released.
