DORR VS. LIFE INSURANCE
MORE ALLEGATIONS MADE.
CLAIMED THAT THREE MEMBERS
OF THE COMPANY RAISED THE
WHEN IT TOOK FOUR TO DO IT.
Further Alleged That ilic Report of
the Transaction Is Not a Cor
An amended complaint was filed in
the district court yesterday in the suit
of Russell R. Dorr against the Life In
surance Clearing company and Thomas
B. Scott and H. Burton Strait. The
suit was begun on Oct. 2 last, when
Mr. Dorr's attorney filed a voluminous
complaint, charging Messrs. Scott and
Strait, who are members of the board
of directors, with fraudulent misman
agement of the business of the com
pany and making a false report of the
condition of the company to the insur
ance commissioner. ,
The amended complaint filed yester
day prefers additional charges of un
lawful and fraudulent conduct on the
part of the defendants, Messrs. Scott
and Strait, as follows:
Further complaining, plaintiff alleges that,
under the laws of the state of Minnesota and
under the charter and bylaws of the said
corporation (the Life Insurance Clearing
company), the board of directors of said cor
poration consisted of seven members, and a
quorum of said board, competent to transact
business, consisted of four members. That
on or about the 3d day of September. 1597.
there was held a pretended meeting of said
board of directors, at which pretended nyet
iug there were present only three members
thereof, and no quorum was present at said
meeting. That prior to said time the salary
of the said defendant, Thomas B. Soott, as
president of said company, had been fixed
at $1,800 per year; that notwithstanding the
absence of a quorum of said board of direc
tors at said meeting, said Thomas B. Scott,
wrongfully, unlawfully and corruptly caused
to be passed a resolution increasing his salary
from $1,800 per annum to $4,300. and in fur
ther increasing his perquisites and compen
sation as president of said company, by fur
ther providing, in and by the said resolution
that the said Seot,t should be paid a commis
sion of 2Vi per cent on the gross premium re
ceipts of the said company, and that the
said commission should commence Sept. 1,
IS**7 : and that two of the said board of di
rector who were present at said alleged
meeting, at which was passed the said resolu
tion, consisted of the said Thomas B. Scott
and said H. Burton Strait, and that there
•were present at the said meeting no members
of the said board, except the said Scott and
Strait, and one other director.
That the said Scott and the said Strait,
at and after the time of the said meeting,
falsified the record thereof and caused it to
appear hi and by the said record that there
were four members and a full quorum of
the said board present, when in truth and
ia fact there were only three members of
the said board present, as hereinbefore stated.
And plaintiff further states that ever since
the passage of the said alleged resolution
the said Scott has been drawing said salary
at the rate of $4,300 per annum, and has
been drawing and appropriating to his own
use a commission of 2\ 2 per cent on the
gross premium receipts of the said company,
beginning Sept. 1, 1597, and that the passage
of the said resolution aad the appropriation
of the said moneys is a gross and unlawful
appropriation of the funds and assets of the
said company; and that plaintiff was not in
formed of the fa ot of the said meeting and
the passage of the said resolution at the
time of the commencement of this action.
The pray or for judgment is as follows:
Wherefore, this plaintiff prays that the said
court decree and compel the payment to said
corporation of all payments of money and the
value of all property of the company that
the defendants, Thomas B. Scott and H.
Burton Strait, or either of them, have ac
quired for themselves, including any increase
of salary, compensation or commissions that
have been paid the said defendant, Thomas
B. Scott, under the said resolution herein
before referred to, or that has been lost or
wasted by the violation of the duties of the
said defendants, or either of them, as such
officers of said company, and that the said
defendants, Thomas B. Scott and H. Burton
Strait, be suspended from exercising their
office or interfering with the business, prop
erty of affairs of the said company, during
the pendency of this suit; and that a re
ceiver of said company be appointed pending
this action and its final determination; and
that the said defendants be removed from
office, and prays for such other and further
relief in the premises as may be meet and

BANK OF IWSOTA
MOVEMENT TO REORGANIZES IT
HAS ASSUMED LARGE PRO
JUDGE OTIS RECOGNIZES IT,
AND DECIDES TO ALLOW UNTIL
OCT. 3O TO FORMULATE
PROCEEDINGS HELD YESTERDAY.
Some Opposition to Taking tbe Mat
ter Out of tlie Receiver's
The movement to reorganize the
Bank of Minnesota, the progress of
which was noted in the Globe yes
terday, has assumed such propor
tions that Judge Otis decided yester
day to allow the promoters of the re
organization scheme, as well as those
opposed thereto until Saturday, Oct.
30, to properly present their cases for
and against the movement to reorgan
ize. On the same day Judge Otis will,
in all probability, dispose of the ap
plication of Receivers Seymour and
Lightner for leave to pay a dividend
of 10 per cent to the creditors.
The application of the receivers
came before Judge Otis yesterday
forenoon pursuant to the continuance
granted last Saturday at special term
after hearing the statements of At
torney J. J. McLaughlin in behalf of
the creditors desiring a reorganization.
At that time Mr. McLaughlin said that
he represented creditors whose claims
aggregated over $100,000. Yesterday
forenoon the court room was crowded
with depositors and their attorneys.
Among the creditors were several
Mr. McLaughlin, addressing the
court, said: It may be well to make
known, who request the reorganization
of the bank. I stated the other day
that depositors representing about
$100,000, having requested reorganiza
tion. I am now able to state that
people representing more than $300,000
Judge Otis— Why has not this appli
cation been presented earlier?"
Mr. McLaughlin— l leave it to Mr.
Lightner to say whether it could have
been done sooner or not. The amount
involved in the bank suspension made
it difficult to ascertain the facts soon
er. The debts were easily ascertained,
but the assets could not be. There
was a large amount of real estate in
the assets. The report by the receiv
ers as to the assets, w-as not made to
the court until about the middle of
Mr. Lightner— The gentleman is mis
taken. The list of assets was fur
nished early in April. It is true, how
ever, that the value of the assets was
not reported until September.
Mr. McLaughlin— That is it.
Judge Otis— The movement to re
organize was proposed soon after the
receivers were named, but not pushed.
Mr. McLaughlin— That is true. Con
ceding that there has been negligence,
the question now is what is best to be
done? It may be said that what is
everybody's business is nobody's busi
ness, and the matter was allowed to
drag along. The names of the peti
tioners, now asking reorganization, is
evidence that it should now be done.
Judge Otis— Read the names and
amounts of the petitioners.
Mr. McLaughlin gave a list of those
desiring reorganization. While he was
making that statement to the court,
several othera came forward and add
ed their names. Two such were elder
ly women. One, Mrs. Amelia Cooper,
a feeble old lady, said she had $1,225
in the bank.
"Do you want the bank organized
again?"- she was asked.
"I should £ay I do," she replied em

anxious for the bank to be re-opened,

Mr. McLaughlin stated that it was
proposed to secure a sufficient amount
of money to put the bank on a good
financial basis. To reorganize would
largely increase the present value of
the assets. That would be satisfactory
to everybody. If the receivers were
permitted to pay the proposed 10 per
cent dividend to creditors, all hope of
reorganization would be destroyed. It
was unnecessary to state that the best
interests of all concerned would be
conserved by putting the bank again
on its feet.
Judge Otis— ls any one here opposed
to a postponement in making the or
der to allow the receivers to pay out a
dividend of 10 per cent to the cred
E. H. Morphy— l represent twenty
creditors who hold paper to the
amount of $40,000 and who oppose de
lay in winding up the affairs of the
bank. Reorganization will cause sev
eral years delay in paying up the cred
itors in full. My clients prefer to have
those now in charge of (he affairs to
wind up the matter. They ask that
distribution of proceeds be made. They
want the proposed dividend and will
oppose any reorganization.
Henry Johns — I represent a client
that opposed reorganization heretofore,
but is now in favor of it.
Enoch Johnson said he represented
about 100 creditors, having claims
amounting to about $50,000, and who
opposed delay in paying the dividend
by the receivers. His clients needed
Pierce Butler, representing John A.
Stees, said— From inquiry, I have
learned that reorganization will be a
great benefit to the creditors and to
the community. If the assets be re
stored to the hands of the persons most
interested, better dividends can be
paid. If time be given to prepare a
plan of reorganization it is evident
that it will be a sucess.
Attorney Merrick said he represent
ed $6,000 in claims and opposed reor
Mr. McLaughlin — Those who oppose
the plan of reorganization should file
a list of the persons they represent and
state the amounts of their claims.
Probably some claims have been pur
chased by speculators for a small per
centage. Such claims ought not to b*.
so strong as those of others who hold
their original claims.
Mr. Thompson, representing $5,000 in
claims, said his position was outlined
by Mr. Morphy.
W. H. Lightner, speaking for the re
ceivers, said — We have no interest In
this controversy. We will be glad to
have the court order the payment, of
the dividend. Personally, I would be
glad to see the bank reorganized. We
are willing to give any information
possible to aid in reorganization. The
names read by Mr. McLaughlin em
brace those of large creditors of the
bank and some of them are stockhold
Judge Otis stated that the desire of
the court was to protect the small as
well as the large creditors. The cred
itors could realize on the assets better
than the receivers. When the motion
for a continuance was made on the
proposition to order the dividend paid
by the receivers, creditors to the
amount of about $100,000 had asked de
lay. In a day or two this amount had
been swelled to considerably over
$300,000. It seemed to him, in view of
these conditions, that it was advisable
to delay making the order for the pay
ment of the proposed dividend. He
added: "I am constrained to defer
making such order until the special
term, a week from next Saturday. I
desire that those who oppose reorgani
zation will at that time present the list
of those in opposition. I will also ex
pect at that time a full showing by
those desiring reorganization and that
the proposed plan of reorganization
shall be submitted then."
ANDERSON COILDX'T HEAR HIM.
That Made Thoinaa MeGeary More
Angry Than Ever.
Thomas McGeary. who recently com
peted with the St. Paul Gas Light
company to secure the three-year con
tract for lighting and heating the
court house and city hall, is very much
put out over his failure to get the
contract. In consequence, he Is mak
ing charges reflecting upon the action
of the joint court house and city hall
commission in awarding the contract
to the St. Paul Gas Light company.
Yesterday forenoon Mr. McGeary
called upon County Attorney Ander
son, and preferred charges against
one of the members of the joint com
mission, to-wit: County Commissioner
Samuel Kellerman. Mr. McGeary
charged Kellerman with voting from
improper motives to let the contract
to the St. Paul Gas Light company.
The vote by which the gas company
secured the contract stood four to
three l Acting Mayor Bigelow, and
Commissioners Daly, McCarron and
Kellerman casting the affirmative
Mr. McGeary, it is reported, insisted
that County Attorney Anderson should
investigate the matter and bring it to
the attention of the nex grand jury.
Mr. McGeary likewise suggested that
Mr. Anderson might institute proceed
ings looking to the impeachment of
Kellerman as a county commissioner.
After listening to Mr. McGeary, the
county attorney informed him that he
would not take any action upon such
a showing, and declined positively to
further consider the charge. Thereup
on Mr. McGeary, it is reported, waxed
indignant and said some harsh things
to the county attorney, and then
walked out of his office.
BURGLARS SCARED OFF.
They Broke Into the Residence of
While alone at her home, 749 Arm
strong street, yesterday afternoon, Mrs.
Martin Murray was badly frightened
by a bold attempt of two burglars to
rob the house. The men endeavored to
force open the front door, and failing
in this broke out the glass and turned
the key on the inside. They were
enabled to work without being seen
from the street by shutting a storm
door, and were doubtless tinder the im
pression that no one was at home. Mrs.
Murray was indisposed during the day,
and when a relative rang the door bell
shortly before the attempted robbery,
did not respond. The men were seen
outside the house at this time and see
ing the caller depart seized upon what
they considered an excellent opportu
nity for a robbery. As they started to
enter the hallway after breaking open
the door, Mrs. Murray startled the
thieves almost as severely as their op
erations had her by calling loudly for
help. The men ran to the street and
disappeared around a corner. Mrs. Mur
ray got a good look at one of them,
who wore brown clothes, a brown felt
hat and flannel shirt. He was very j
dark in complexion, heavy built and j
smooth shaven. His companion was i
larger, while both bore the appearance j
of rough characters. Residents of this |
locality have of late been apprehensive !
of ill-appearing men loitering about.
The police were notified of the attempt
ed robbery, but could find no trace of

MRS. PAT GALVIN ENJOYED LIFE
THERE, BUT IS GLAD TO RE
TELLS ABOUT THE KLONDIKE.
THERE IS NO OCCASION FOR LONE
SOMENESS OR FEAR OF LAW
AFTERNOON TEAS NOT IN VOGUE.
Life at Dan-son City and on the
Yukon, as Seen by a Minnesota
With a charming nai\ 2tte amount
ing almasf to enthusiasm, Mrs. Pat
Calvin tells of a woman's experiences
in the Klondike. As mentioned in the
Globe of yesterday's, Mr. and Mrs.
Galvin left Minnesota a little, ever
four years ago for Alaska, to brave its
rigorous winter's cold and oppressive
heat of summer, in the search for a
fortune. Mr. Galvin — or "Pat," as he
prefers to be called — took up a small
stock of hardware, and locating at
Forty-Mile, did a thriving business.
When the gold discoveries on the Bo
nanza were made a year ago, they re
moved to Dawson City, and since then
Dame Fortune has bestowed her sweet
est smiles on them. Mr. Galvin be
came interested in several claims, had
a number of men working under him,
engaged in several other enterprises,
and the "dust" accumulated at such a
rate that he was enabled to live in
luxury, which the natives would term
riotous extravagance — he actually had
carpets on the floors of his house and
wine in the cellar.
In speaking of this, that noted cor
respondent, Joaquin Miller, who is
visiting Dawson recently, wrote:
Most people think that the inhabitants of
Dawson are devoid of all the luxuries and
even some of the comforts of life. To show
the fallacy of this, several days ago I visited
Pat Galvin at his home and broke a couple of
bottles of champagne. It is worth only $50
a bottle here.
The owner of the home referred to is
the gentleman now visiting his old
home in Minnesota.
'"We were very cosily situated," said
Mrs. Galvin to a Globe reporter at
the Ryan, yesterday. "We had every
thing in our house that we could ask
for, and nearly every evening friends
would drop in to play a social game
of cards. No, I did not get lonesome
there for society, for (with a tender
glance at her husband) Pat was with
me. I would pass the day knitting or
sowing, and I had to do all my sewing
by hand, for there wasn't a machine in
"Of course, I am glad to get back to
the states, and I don't think I shall
go to Alaska again. It gets most too
cold there. There were but few women
in Dawson to associate with, and after
noon teas are unknown. The town is
very quiet and peaceable, and only
two rows occurred that I heard of, all
the time we were in Alaska. Since we
got back so many people have asked
me if I wasn't afraid to live in such
a wild and lawless place; it really is
quite amusing to see how little they
know of the Klondike.
"The Yukon seems like one great city,
near Dawson, for the miners' cabins
extend along both sides of every stream
for miles, one cabin being on every
claim and sometimes each is occupied
by several men. It is a scene of ac
tivity for all are hard at work, patient
ly digging or washing out the gold.
"Of course you have heard that
everything is very expensive there, and
the stories are no exaggeration in that
iespect. I bought some red bandanna
handkerchiefs for Pat and they cost ?2
apiece. Here you could get them for
"The only thing I did not like about
the country — or perhaps I should say
the thing I disliked the most — was the
absence of news. Practically no news
papers come in at all, and I really have
lost track of the world's history for
the past four years. It's a peculiar
feeling, to be cut off from the news
papers and not know what is going on.
"We left Dawson on Aug. 29, and
came down over the Dalton trail, a trail
which has been traveled but compar
atively little. We traveled by horses,
or rather the men walked, leading the
pack horses, while I had one of the
animals to ride. It was a very hard
journey for them and three of the
horses gave out. I walked about one
hundred miles of the way. One of the
men nearly played out, but he said he
was bound to stick to it, he wasn't
going to be outdone by a woman. When
we were in Seattle for a few hours an
agent of the Society for the Prevention
of Cruelty to Animals called on us a.t
the hotel, and wanted Pat to use his
influence with the miners and driven
on his return to Alaska for better treat
ment of the animals. Pat gave the
society a few dollars, but said when it
came to a question between a horse's
life and a man's life, he was on the
side of the man.
"I suppose there will be a big rush
to the Klondike next spring, but when
people ask me about the place I never
advise them to go; if they are deter
mined to endure all kinds of hardship,
they will all make money there. I
should think there was gold enough in
the Klondike country for everybody."
Mrs. Galvin is a petite lady and does
not look at all suited for roughing it
in the far northern country, or to un
dertake a fatiguing trip over the trail,
but the experience seems to have
agreed with her, for she is in robust
health, albeit a little tired with her
long journey. As she spoke of her
Klondike home, even though she said
she was glad to return to the States,
her eyes had a wistful look in their
depths as her mind dwelt upon the
happy days passed there with her hus
Mr. Galvin is much more enthusi
astic, and a-sserts positively that the
Klondike is the greatest country under
the sun and that there is gold by the
panful for everybody who is willing
to labor for it. He adds, however, that
no person should start out without a
complete outfit and supplies for one
year and $500 in cash.
Among the evidences of the richness
of that country, he exhibited a nug

He expects a large influx of miners
early next spring and says there will
be plenty for all. He estimate's that no
less than 250 tons of gold will be taken
out of Alaska next season— a mere
bagatelle of a hundred milion dollars,

"but that is because you can have no
conception of the wonderful richness
of that country until you see it. Why,
when I left, gold dust was actually

INSPECTED BOTH SYSTEMS.
Experts I,ook Over Enstern Fire
Supt. Carey, of the fire alarm sys
tem, and Assistant Electrical Inspector
Varnum yesterday returned from a trip
to Columbus, 0., and Detroit, Mich.
The gentlemen were deputized by the
board of fire commissioners to inspect
the United States company's automatic
fire alarm now in operation in the for
mer city, and on their way back to St.
Paul the experts stopped off at De
troit and inspected the manual sys
tem of the Gamewell company in op
eration there. A report as to the two
systems will be made to the fire board
at a special meeting to be held this
evening. Both firms have bids for fur
nishing the St. Paul department with
a new fire alarm system.
REMAIXS A MYSTERY.
Investigation of the Raymond Af
fair Allowed to Drop.
The mystery surrounding the attack
upon Louis Raymond at his store, 499
East Seventh street, by an unknown
man with a revolver, was not cleared
up yesterday, though Chief Goss in
terviewed Mrs. Thomas, the woman
living over Raymond's place, who was
thought to have been in some way
connected with the affair. Mrs. Thom
as reiterated her denials of the previ
ous night about knowing anything of
the alleged assault, and declared there
had been r.o quarrel in her apartments
early in the evening, as was alleged
by Raymond. In fact Mrs. Thomas
rather impressed Chief Goss with the
idea that there was something in the
nature of a hoax about the affair, and
the investigation has been dropped.
DEAL ON RECORD.
Transfer of a Piece of Fonrth
In the list of real estate transfers
published in the Globe yesterday was
that of the sale of a piece of busi
ness property of some importance. The
property was a forty-foot frontage on
the north side of Fourth street, be
tween Minnesota and Robert streets,
extending back about sixty feet. On it
is a one-story brick building. It was
sold by J. Larkin to J. B. Robbins, the
consideration being $15,000, of which
$8,000 is in part trade, consisting of a
residence on Portland avenue. Mr.
Larkin purchased the property twenty
years ago for $1,300, and in the mean
time it has yielded a good rental.
Mr. Robbins contemplates some ex
tensive improvements to the building,
by adding more stories and converting
it into a modern structure.

be a life portrait of the Countess
Zichy, as related in the Globe of
Monday, was displayed for the first
time in America at the Metropolitan
hotel Tuesday evening to a small
party of newspaper men and .lovers of .
art. It is an exquisite creation. The
title is an Austrian word meaning a
dream, and the subject Is a woman,
nude, reclining on a divan. The paint
ing is valued at $20,000, aside from the
romantic interest which attaches to it
through the social status of the model
who is accredited with having posed
for it. »
