OLSON JURY SPLITS
COULD XOT AGREE AFTER HOCUS
STOOD 8 TO 4 FOR PLAINTIFF
Conrt Gave Additional . nstruction
on Perjured Evidence, bnt Di
vergent Opinions Could
Not Be Reconciled.
Having in the course of twenty-four
hours failed to reach any state of senti
ment that would indicate likelihood of an
agreement, the jury in the new celebrated
damage suit of Nels Olson against the
"Soo" road, was discharged by Judge
Brill at 5 o'clock yesterday afternoon.
\Vhen the jury retired at 5 o'clock on
Wednesday afternoon the first ballot of
its members which was taken showed
eight votes in favor of a verdict for the
plaintiff and four in favor of a verdict
for the defendant. And when the last
ballot was taken yesterday afternoon
just before 5 o'clock the result was just
the same—eight for the plaintiff and four
for the defendant. Throughout the entire
twenty-four hours there was no material
change at any time in the sentiment of
the jury, the only deviation from fhe
vote of eight to four being in one ballot
of yesterday, which showed a result of
nine to three In favor of the plaintiff.
The jury first went before the court
at noon yesterday to report its inability
to agree. Judge Brill then said that he
did not propose to coerce the members
into an agreement, but it was highly de
sirable that a result should be reached.
No man of the numbet woull be expect
ed to abandon conscientious convictions,
but there should be all reasonable effort
made to reconcile varying views.
The court by request gave additional
instruction as to testimony believed to be
perjured and the meaning of the term
preponderance of evidence. He said that
no weight should be given to testimony
which the Jury was convinced was per
When the jury returned to the court
room at 5 o'clock the foreman said that
there was no possibility of an agreement,
and that there had from the fiist been
no material change in the state of feel
ing among the members of the jury.

Among the candidates are ten pitchers,
five catchers, fifteen infielders and thir
teen outfielders. There is a slight ten
dency to glut the market with outfield

tions of shortstop and third base are al
most neglected. In view of the large

LABOR COMMISSIONER'S PLAN TO
COLLECT STATISTICS IS A
PRACTICED IN OTHER STATES
He Is Gathering Complete Data on
Wage Earning Capacities of
ities Are Great.
The efforts recently put forth by Labor
Commissioner O'Donnell to secure im
portant statistics regarding the employ
ment of laborers in different fields of
activity have been received with unusiul
approval throughout the state, especially
the movement for securing complete sta
tistics regarding the employment of
women. Commissioner O'Donnell has al
ready received from the women wage
earners five times as many replies as ho
counted on when he sent out his circulars.
They have evidently taken the greatest
interest in the work.
The movement has received wide ntten
tion and commendation outside the state
from prominent labor leaders and others
including Carroll D. Wright. It is l^cdt
ed upon as a move in the right dire :tion
and sure to bring most benificent results
It will be the first time that statistics
ot this kind have ever been secured in
Minnesota, and when the biennial report
of the department is issued next fall, Mr.
U Donnell hopes to have a fund of ma
terial along thip ;line to present to the
people of the stale.
Already a considerable agitation of the
subject has been stirred up by the r.ar
tial reports which have been received by
Commissioner O'Donnell, and he has booh
asked to contribute a series of articles
to a leading magazine to embody the
results of his investigations.
The most important part of this work
will be the replies to the last circular
sent out, which seeks to get at the
causes which induced women wage-earn
ers in many fields of activity to desert
household occupations. The replies are
expected to be very interesting as well
as important, throwing light upon a vex
ed question which the economists are
discussing pro and con.
"I do not expect to startle the public
by attaining any surprising results in
this direction, but I hope *to at least
start the people to thinking of the great
question of wage-earning conditions, dis
advantages, and possibilities of improve
ment. If a general agitation of the sub
ject is once started the results will be
of sufficient worth to fully warrant the
effort put forth by this department to
secure this information," says Commis

HAS NO HOPE OF PEACE
TAFT SAYS AMERICA MUST MAIX
TAIX POLICY IX PHILH'PIXEJ,
WASHINGTON, D. C, Feb. 20.—Reply
ing to a series of questions before the
senate committee today, Gov. Taft said
the intervention of the United States in
the Philippines was the best thing that
could happen the Filipino, but that
it would have^been better for our coun
try if we had not gone there. He add
"If the result in the end proves to be
in the interest of the general welfare,
then we can possibly justify ourselves on
the ground that we have taken only our
share of the burden of the civilization in
bringing out an uncivilized people."
"Do you believe that what we are now
doing in the Philippines is best for the
Filipinos and for the people of the Unit
ed States as well?" asked Senator Alli
"I do," said Gov. Taft. "We are pur
suing there the only course open to rs.
The Democratc senators could not do bet
ter, if in power."
'"If a safe and honorable opening lor
withdrawing from the islands should pre
sent itself, do you - think the United
States should avail itself of it?" asked
"I say no," replied Taft. "Possr-sseU,
as I believe I am, of the missionary spir
it, I think that we should continue our
work in those islands, now that we are
there, and there is no likelihood of find
ing an honorable way out."
Senator Bacon today gave notice of his
intention to offer an amendment to the
Philippine tariff bill, declaring it to be
the intention of the United States, when
order shail be restored in the Philippine
islands to allow the formation of a gov
ernment for and by the Philippine people,
and to'guarantee to th£m the same degree
of liberty and independence that this
country has pledged to the Cuban peo
