COUNTY COMMISSIONERS WITH
DRAW THEIR SUPPORT FROM
SAID TO BE INEFFICIENT
Quelil Tfc««a>bt tUe
Expenditure Wnw I navallintv
When Slreet Rnilway Salt "Was
Crippling <•«*' Hflrm on lite City
Bridge* Jlnjor Kiefer Alone
Voted in Favor of Appropriation.
The board of county commissioners
at a meeting held yesterday morning
passed a resolution authorizing the
county attorney i<> stipulate that the
assessment of the Bt Paul City railway
!\>r isms be fixed at $700,000, in consid
eration of judgment being entered for
the amount in fawn- of the county.
Countj Attorney Anderson told the
commissioner^ that a law suit would
be doubtful in Its outcome and might
take a year t<> decide. He .--aid that by
fixing the valuation at $700,000 the city
will retain the amount received from
the gross earnings tax and also receive
Its proportion of the county tax, and
that the amount received from a valua
tion of $701,000 would be about the same
as on a valuation of $1,650,000.
A motion to postpone action was lost
by 1 lif vote.
With Mayor Kiefer alone voting: in
the negative 1 a resolution was passed
refusing to continue the monthly ap
propiation of $25 to the Humane society
for the Human.' offi< 1 r.
The resolution Introduced by Commis
sioner Qm?hl embodied the following
reasons for the action taken:
First —If we grant allowance others
aiv coming in for like assistance.
Second —There is absolutely no use
for a humane agent as his powers are
not large enough, and as the city coun
cil does not enforce tl;< ordinance which
would help the poor horses driven in
this city, namely, by allowing the street
car company to use salt on our streets
Since the recent storm the street car
company has used thirty-five barrels
In one day. Furthermore, section 3801
prohibits the street <■;■>• company from
operating more than one track on Rob
ert street bridge from Nov. 15 to Feb.
!•">. and, In consequence, there is more
cruelty to horses practiced on said Rob
en Btreel bridge than in all the city
and county put together. The nabobs
of thH city dock th<- tails of their driv
ing horses in summer time. These
horses suffer much torture, and since
the humane society is helpless, as they
claim, in these matters, what is the use
of having a man look after a few cases
of heaves and collar sores when cruelty
on the wholesale is practiced as stated
above. 1 therefore recommend that the
appropriation of the human society be
disallowed until said society has got
pr< p<T legislation for the prevention of
i ruelty to animals.
The bonds for the n< wly elected coun
ty officers were received and submitted
to the county attorney for approval.
The board of countj audit reported
having: examined the books and ac
counts of the treasurer and having
found everything all right. The total
amount on hand on Dec. 15 was $42
The board adjourned to meet Tues

JUMPED INTO THE RIVER

CEI,E.STI!VK KOHLBR, A FORMER
RESIDENT OF W ATERTOYVN,
EM>S HIS EXISTENCE
Has Keen Under Medical Treatment
for Some Brain Trouhlc, mid Has
Frequently Tulkrd of Death
Witnesses Unable t<» Save Him.
C< leetine ICohler, seventy-five years of age,
drowned himself in the river yesterday morn
ing, near the BurUnston depot, elope to the
(ten hatchery. The water is not deep at the I
point where the suicide jumped in and sev- j
eral witnesses of the deed shortly afterward 1
recovered the body. It was taken to the
county morgue, where it was later identified.
Mr. Kohler formerly lived at Wafertown,
Minn., where he settlfd in ISofi. Seme five

been makifig hi< home with one of'his daugh
ters at 210 Kast Thirteenth street. The
daughter Bays her hither had recently been I
ur.d?r medical treatment for sofreningof the ■
brain and of late acted strangely, talking]
frequently of death. Yesterday morning the 1
old man left tbe house shortly before 9
o'clock. He remarked earlier in the day to
his daughter that she would not have* her
father with her much longer.
It is thought that the old man wandered
aunlessly toward the river immediately after
leaving the house. He appeared near the I
Burlington dep-ot about 10 o'clock, carrying •
a bundle and shovel. l>ar>i>>] Parrel!, living j
a; 19 Hoffman avenue, saw the old man walk '
out on the ice to an open snot and throw the !
bundle and (he Bhove] into the water. Glanc
ing up, apparently to sec that he was undis
turbed, the old man suddenly plunged into
tha water. Farreil and others ran out on the
lie and with long poles succeeded, after
some time, in bringing the body to tha
surface, but life waa extinct.
The remains will be taken to Watertown

Two Mut-ii Prayer Meeting; for
Hie Hchil of the Family.
The troubles in the Hingisz family all dato
from the time when Mrs. Hingisz first started
to go to church. So Charles W. Hingisz told
Judge Bunn yesterday during the trial of an
action brought by Mrs. Linmere Hingisz for
a divorce and alimony on the alleged grounds
of cruel and inhuman treatment. The court
room was crowded with witnesses and friends
of the parties in the ease, and every damag
ing statement frcm either side wa-3 audibly
commented on from behind the railing. Mr.
Hingisz is fighting the case bitterly, and
much of the testimony yesterday was"sensa
tional. Mr. Hingisz was on the stand in
his own bfhalf when court adjourned.
A.< cording to the cempaint the Hingises
were married in 1880 at City Point, Wis., and
for the last seventeen years have resided in
St. Paul, the greater part of the time at the
Hingis/, homestead at 232 Ka^t Wyoming
street. They have two children, the eldest,
a daughter, being seventron, and Carl, tha

years o)d and the defendant is fifty.
The plaintiff alleges that in July, IS3B,
Hingisz kicked her en her kr. ; s with heavy
shoes until she became sick and s"ire, al
though on this occasion she was suc
cessful in escaping. Later on he beat her
with a broomstick.

that, she has called him indecent and had

Owing to the great stress of business
yesterday tha Central W. C. T. U., at
its meeting i n the parlors of the St.
Paul Commons, did not discuss "Res
cue Work," but postponed the subject
until the next meeting and fortified
Itself by appointing several depart
ment superintendents to have charge
of the W. C. T. U. work during tha
The following were selected to look
after the department work:
Lumbermen, Mr* Paden.
Soldiers and Sailors. Mrs. M. M. Holden,
Scientific Temperance, Miss H. Walker.
Loyal Temperance Legion. Miss Agnes C.
Social Purity, Mrs. Susie V. Root
Medial Contest. Mrs. Farnsworth.
Sunday Schools. Mrs. Leonard.
Sabbath Observance, Mrs. W. W. Nicholas.
Several new branches of work were
proposed and talked over. Mrs. Root's
pet scheme to open a reading room
and headquarters in some down town
store was talked over. Several favored
the scheme as it was thought that it
would in a measure counteract the In
fluence cf the saloon. Mrs. Root
thought such a place made homelike
would save many girls who spent much
of their time on the streets, as well as
assisting the men in giving them some
place to go after dark. No action was
taken on the subject, as there are sev- I
eral projects which the union now has
in hand, which will first be investigat
ed. It was agreed to take the matter
up at the next meeting.
A gospel meeting, to be held Friday
evening in Volunteers' hall on Seventh
street, was arranged to take the place
<>t the Saturday night meeting. In the
future gosyel meetings, in the same
hall, will be held on Friday night In
stead of Saturday.
Mrs. Hatchett announced that she
had arranged for.a meeting to be heid

Already plans are. being made at the high j

formed that so- far hs their requests are rea
sonable they will probably be regarded in ar
ranging for the event.

quired number of credits, but of these sev: ral
do not wish to graduate until Juno, while
j some others expect by extra work to got out I
next month. The other high schools will be [
represented by not more than two or three
each, making the outside limit of the class j
I about twenty.

PRESFJfTS HIS KRI'ORT TO
MINNESOTA'S 1898 ACCOUNT
It Bhoni That Over Seven Million
Dollars Have Been Handled by
the Treasurer During the Year
Jnst Closed Five .Million Have
Been Expended In Various Cham,
State Treasurer Koerner has just re
ceived his annual report from the
The total financial transactions of
the state during the year were $7,483,
--,554.58, including a balance In the treas
ury at the beginning of the year of
<$2,054,314.26. The expense of running
all departments of the state govern
ment this year does not greatly exceed
that of a year ago, when a large part
of the legislative expenses wore in
cluded in the totals. The balance on
hand is $2,184,012.53, which is about
$150,000 more than credited to the cash
balance at the opening- of the fiscal
year. The total disbursements for all
purposes during ■ the year was $5,298 -
Mr. Koerner does not signal
ize the year's business as mak
ing necessary any important leg
islation, but says regarding the
investment o f gtate funds': -During
the past six months it has been ex
tremely difficult to invest the perma
nent school and university funds In
bands that are first-class, in compli
ance with existing laws, and great in
jury and loss may befall the state If
tha conditions do not change. Large
amounts are accumulating in these
funds, notwithstanding the board of
investment is very liberal in making
loans to counties, townships, villages
and school districts. I therefore re
spectfully recommend that such
charges be made in the laws as may be
deemed wise by your honorable body."
Mr. Koerner reports the amount re
ceived from interest on deposits dur
ing the year as $21,805.34. Of the state's
cash in suspended banks, he says: "In
my last report it was shown that the
amount of state funds in banks sus
pended since Jan. 7, 1895, when I as
sumed this office was $294,558.25. The
amount that had been recovered was
$231,346.54, leaving a balance at the
time of $16,211.71. Of this amount there
has been collected during the year
$5,546.69, leaving a balance at the close
of the fiscal year of $10,665.02, all of
which will be recovered into the state
The actual state debt Is $1,362,332.78
representing state bonds held by sev
eral New York banking institutions,
the permanent school and university
funds and the Life Insurance Clear
ance Company of St. Paul, which holds
442,000 worth of the state's paper.
For inteiest on past" due stumpage
drafts the state received $2,155.63 dur
ing the year.
Of the state's transaction in sugar
beet toed, Mr. Koerner says:
Chapter 146 of the General Laws of
!597, directed the state treasurer to ex
pend the sum of $.~,000 in the purchase
o! sugar beet seed. Under said law I
purchased one carload, containing 27,571
pounds, at a total cost of $2,750.67. Dur
ing the season of 1597 the sale of the
seed amounted to 2,232 pounds. .One
hundred and sixty orders were filled'
I expected larger sales in 1898, but have
been disappointed, as only 585 pounds
on fifty-four orders, were sold, leaving
24,683 pounds of sec-d on hand This
seed is in good condition, stored in the
seed house of'Northrup, King & Co.,
Minneapolis. I would recommend that
this seed be disposed of in some man
ner, and I know of no better way than
to distribute the same to the farmers
of this state free of charge.
The amount of the school fund and
university fund invested in interest
bearing bonds is $5,657,091. which nets a
substantial income to both these funds
