NEW PLAN DOOMED

SUBJECT DEBATED YESTERDAY
Although Experts Plead v for Im
i-.,proved. Plan, the Test Vote la -
- KM to 163, Assuring
Its Defeat.
Yesterday was a day for debaters in the
session of the Minnesota grand lodge, A.
O. U. W. The entire <day was spent with
the debates over the change in the plans
of assessment. As previously predicted
In The Globe, the proposition to
change from the present level rate plan to
the classified plan is sure to be defeated
on the final vote, and the test vote yester
day afternoon shows the prediction to
have been well founded. It will require
a two-thirds majority to secure a change
in the const-..ution of the order and the
test vote showed almost an even divis
ion. It is not believeS that any material
changes in the votes can be secured be
fore the session convenes this morning.
The session went into committee of -c
whole as soon as convened and the de
bate began.
Past Supreme Master Workman W.
Warner Wilson, of Detroit, Mich., was
asked to open the discussion on behalf
of the friends of a change in plan. He
occupied the floor the greater portion of
the morning endeavoring to convince the
delegates that it would be a grave mis
take for the order in Minnesota to re
main upon the old plan. Every one of
the states but four had adopted the new
system and all were prospering under
it. For more than two hours Mr. Wilson
had the floor and answered questions in
numerable. He contended that only by
making a change could younger men be
induced to join the order. Other insur
ance fraternities which were in keen com
petition with the order had graded plans
and were securing members.
He also said the new plan as proposed
was in reality not a new plan but had
been tried by many of the jurisdictions
and had- demonstrated that it was the
saivation of the order.
When the afternoon session convened
the discussion was continued, J. J. Mc-
Cardy and Craven spo"ke earnestly for
a change and the contest against it was
carried on by Delegates Vance, Craig,
Daly, Hare and Trevette.
Diment Taken r Hand iv It.
About 4 o'clock Nance, who had been
most active in the fight against a change
moved that debate on the proposition be
closed. This motion brought Grand Mas
ter Diment to the floor. He challenged
the maker of the motion saying vhat the
session had given him a.ll the time he
desired and listened patiently and often
and that his call for the previous question
was rather in bad taste. i*he grand mas
ter then went on in an earnest plea for the
proposed change and said that the best
thinkers in the order who had given years
of work for its welfare had Leoome con
vinced that a change wou-d have to be
made. The life of the order depenaed on
getting in new members and that as
long as the present agitation was kept up
it would be impossible to indtrce men to
join. While he earnestly favored a
change at the present time he admon
ished the grand lodge, that no matter
what the result of the vote on the ques?
tion might toe, when once taken the dele
gation should drop the discussion. He
urged them to go tome and remain a
united band and work for the best inter
ests of the order no matter what plan was
to be in force.
The motion to close the debate was then
carried.
The chair then read the following: reso
lution, which in itself was a test of
strength and the vote on which sealed the
fate of the. new plan.
"Resolved, That when the committee
rise, it recommend, to the grand lodga
that no action he taken at this session on
the question of a change in ass«ssments."
The chairman was vigorous in his rul
ings and permitted no interruptions and
the vote was called for: The result was
164 in favor of and 163 against the reso
lution.
The question comes up for final disposi
tion this morning in regular session when
the committee of the whole will report,
and the action occurs on the adoption of
the report of the committee.
One of the pleasant events of the grand
lodge session, was the entertainment of
its officers and members by West Side
Lodge No. S6 where the degree work was
exemplified by about 200 brothers. As
soon as the business of the meeting had
been disposed of, those present were in
vited to a banquet. Bro. J. Newsalt was
selected as toastmaster and he did the
job with that well known uroanity that
has given him his strong hosd upon the
membership.
HAVE PAID THEIR RENT
WEST S.IIMC MANUFACTURERS SAY
THEY HAVE RECEIPTS.
The Waterous Engine company and
the Gedney Pickling company, -olders of
West Side levee leases, have reported
to the city legal department that they
hold rent receipts showing,. U— their
rent is paid in full. The rent arrearage
compiled by the department was taken
from a statement furnished by the city
treasurer. Some of the members of the
assembly last night were inclined to think
that the amounts paid had been credited
to a wrong fund, hence the mistake.
The assembly committee on streets next
week will wrestle with the question of
obligating all holders of city contracts
to employ union la<bor. Newmann & Hoy
are the lowest bidders for the painting of
the Fort Snelling bridge, but at the In
stance of the painters' union, last night,
approval was withheld until the commit
tee could investigate. The legal depart
ment holds that no such obligation can
be imposed by the city; neither can the
council turn down a bid if it is the lowest,
should the parties refuse to employ the
class of labor demanded.
At the request of E. F. Berresford and
others this final order for ' the paving: of
Robert street from . .Eighth on was killed
and a new order Introduced. The owners
want brick. • The board - of - public! works
says this material is not fit - for heavy
grades and refuses to put it in the specifi

REBEKAHS ENTERTAINED
MEMBERS OF MANY LODGES ENJOST
PLEASANT REUNIOX.
The Rebekah branch, of the I. O. O. F*
gave a highly enjoyable social entertain
ment last evening at Central ball which
was participated in by members of the
fifteen lodges of tne Rebekahs and the
twenty lodges of the Odd Fellows. The
programme, which was under the direc
tion of a committee of which Mrs. O. D.
Curtis was chairman, -was of a varied
character and proved popular with the
large audience.
The address of welcome was made by
Mrs. Curtis and later in the course of
the evening addresses were delivered by
Judge E. A. Jaggard and H. Wilkinson,
of St. Paul Park. Mrs. B. Sherbach con
tributed a recitation, Mrs. William Boett
cher, a piano solo, and Miss Millie Mace
a "coon" sketch. The programme closed
with a floor drill by Evening 1 Star de
gree team.
Refreshments were served in the course
of the evening.
CETS A HUSTLE ON
ASSEMBLY RUSHES THROUGH JRES
OLUTION FOR PURCHASE OP
DAVIDSON PROPERTY
WAS HELD BACK FOR MONTHS
Dilatory Tactics of Legal Depart
ment Jfay Yet Forfeit City's Rislit
to Purchase Under Condemna
nation Proceedings.
When the budget was compiled: the
sum of $12,000 was inserted for the pur
pose of acquiring the Davidson tract on
Jackson street, condemned a year ago
for market purposes.
Presumably for political, though unex
plained reasons, the resolution ordering
the money paid, providing a clear title
was given, was not introduced in the
council by the legal department until
last night, in the assembly. Sunday night
at 12 o'clock the right to acquire under
the condemnation proceedings would have
expired, and in order to get through the
full course of legal procedure some rush
tactics will have to be indulg.il in by
the board.
Because of legal difficulties attending
the acquisition of the ground on which
stands the Cook barn, the owners having
contested the city's right to condemn,
the council was reluctant to purchase
the Davidson tract, which is farther
north. In the leveling of the ground
now paved, however, the contractors, at
the instance of the engineering depart
ment, so it is claimed, dumped the dirt
on the Davidson tract. Asked to remove
it, or buy the property, the council re
belled, but later, seeing that the ground
would be needed, gave the order for pur
chase. In these proceedings Alderman
Dotmer was an active participant, and
at times the division on the question as
sumed a political aspect.
When the resolution came up last night
Assemblyman Wheeler wanted it sent to
the streets, and so argued at length, but
the remainder of the members refused
to come to his aid, and the resolution
was passed. In order to get the reso
lution through a special meeting of the
board will have to be held this evening
and the document hurried to the mayor
for signature, so it can be given legal
publication the following morning.
Between delays and the cost of con
demnation proceedings, an expense of
nearly $1,000 has been incurred. If fur
ther delay occurs the preliminaries will
all have to be gone over again, and the
treasury again mulcted for another $1,000.
The members of the joint market com
mittee say the purchase of the additional
ground, as provided) for in the budget, is
absolutely necessary. Nearly all the
stands provided for have been taken, and
a large number of farmers are yet to be
Ireard from.
The section of ground on which stands
the Cook barn, and which was included
in the strip condemned for market pur
poses, is still in court. The city's right
to acquire it was sustained by the su
preme court. The owners threaten to
carry the matter to the United Htates
court.
A STEUBEN MONUMENT
M'CLEARY APPROVES FLAX OP LO
CAL GERMAN VETERANS.
Col. A. R. Iviefer, of the German-Amer
ican Veterans' union, has received the
following letter from Congressman Mc-
Cleary:
"Your valued favor of recent date, In
closing-a copy of the memorial relative to
the erection of a statue in honor of
Baron Steuben, who was so successful in
the Revolutionary war in organizing out
of the forces in the field an army, reach
ed me in due season.
"Please say to your associates in this
movement that it will give me pleasure
to co-operate with Senator Clapp in se
curing a monument in honor of this dis
tinguished son of old Germany. As chair
man of the committee on the library
(which has charge of all such bills), it
will be my pleasure to see that the bill,
when it reaches the senate, is promptly
and favorably reported.
"When I first came down to Washing
ton, last December, I stated, in an inter
view in the Evening Star, of this city,
that, vn my judgment, the four corners
of Jackson square, in front of the White
house, should be dedicated to those dis
tinguished foreigners who did so much
for us in the Revolutionary war. You re
member that on one of the corners there
is a statue now to the Marquis de I^a
fayette. My idea is to place on the
other three corners monuments to Count
de Rochambeau (for whose statue we
have already In this congress passed a
Mil), Baron Steuben and Count Pulaskl,
ihe Pole."

PAYS BOARD AT PEST HOUSE.
William Keefe, of Lift* liiielil, En
riches City Treasury by $«2.
William Keefe, of Litchfield, late a pa
tient at the pest house, paid $62 into the
city treasury yesterday. Of the amount
$10 was a fine for violation of the quaran
tine laws in leaving his town when he
knew he was suffering from a contagious
disease, while the remainder went to pay
his board bill.
Keefe was willing to pay, but the draft
practically left him penniless. His case
was extremely light, and while at the
pest house he was used as a guard over
the two prisoners that are located there.

GOVERNOR IS HAPPY
YAK SANT BEAMS WITH PLEASURE)
ON ATTORNEY GENERAL
KNOX'S ACTION
HE SAYS IT WAS EXPECTED
Attorney General Douglas Also"
Gives Out '- Statement Declaring
That State's Case Will Not
Be Interfered With.
Gov. Van Sant and Attorney General
Douglas yesterday expressed great pleas
ure and satisfaction at the news from
Washington that the Attorney General
would institute proceedings against the
Northern Securities company. Gov. Van
Sant gave out the following signed state
ment:
We expected this action fey the attor.
ney general of the United States would
t>e taken. He has never intimated that
ne could not or would not proceed against
the Northern Securities company, but, on
the contrary, said that he would examine
the facts, and if the law was being vio
lated he would proceed.
"When Attorney General Douglas, Mr.
Munn and Gen. Wilson were first in
Washington they had a long conference
with Attorney General Knox, and Attor
ney General Douglas and Mr. Munn re
mained over after the argument for
further conference with him to arrange
for submitting testimony to him.
"Of course, we are delighted with this
decision, and the people of this state and
the Northwest can rest assured that their
rights will be protected and the law vin
dicated."
The attorney general said:
"A suit brought by the attorney gen
eral will In no way conflict with the suit
brought by the state of Minnesota. They
go side by side. I am vry much pleased
of course to see that the suit will be
brought. It will not jeopardize the stand
ing of our case before the supreme court
in any way.
"I would like to take this opportunity
to correct a mistake that a good many
attorneys are making. It is often said
that the government has no power to
prohibit the making of contracts. That
is in a measure true, but not entirely. It
is within the power of the government to
prohibit the making of an illegal con
tract, and a contract against public poU
cy is illegal. It is not illegal for a man
to buy stock in ordinary quantities, but
when he buys stock of such quantity and
nature as to be against public policy he
may be restrained. I will just cite two
authorities: Qne I gave at the recent
hearing before the supreme court, in re
ply to a question. In the opinion given
by Justice Peckham. in the United States
vs. The Joint Traffic Association. 171 U.
S., page 571, in which the anti-trust act is
held valid, he says:,
" 'In dealing with contracts, the cou
stltutional right of -a citizen to make con
tracts is not inconsistent with the exist
ence of a power in congress to prohibit
a contract of the -nature involved in this
case."
"Since then I have found another opin
ion even more explicit. It is in the case
of Frisbie vs. The United States. 157 U.
S.. page 165. In this opinion Justice
Brewer gays:
" 'While it may be conceded that, gen
erally speaking among the inalienable
rights of the citizen is that of the liberty
of contract,, yet such liberty Is not abso
lute and universal. It is within the un
doubted power of government to restrain
some individuals from all contracts, a3
well as all individuals. It may deny to
all the right to contract for the purchase
or sale of lottery tickets; to the minor
the right to assume any obligations, ex
cept for the necessaries of existence; to
the common carrier the power to make
any contract releasing himself from negli
gence, and, indt^ed, may restrain all en
gaged in any employment from any con
tract in the course of that employment
which is against public policy. The pos^
session of this power by government in
no manner conflicts with the proposition
that, generally speaking, every citizen
has a right freely to contract for the
prict: of his labor, services or proper-
READ THE WANT ADS IN SUNDAY'S GLOBE
Thursday night, Feb. 27, Daniel Belasco's play "Naughty
Anthony" will be given at the Metopolitan Opera House. The
engagement is limited to one night; but The Globe, through the
- courtesy of Manager L N. Scott, has secured ten tickets of
admission % each one of which will admit two people. These will
be given away to the readers of the want ad page in next
Sunday's Globe. The conditions are as follows:
Later in the season an eminent American actor will appear
at the Metropolitan, and will bring a play which has never been
produced in this city, Scattered through the want ads will be
the name of this actor, the name of the piece in which he will
be seen, and the name of the author of the booh from which it
is dramatized. There will also be given the name of one other
play in which the actor in question has formerly been seen here
and which was considered as one of his greatest successes.
The ads containing these words must be cut from The
Globe, pasted on a sheet of paper and be mailed or left at
the business office addressed to the Contest Editor. The
writers of the first ten letters opened containing the correct
answer will see "Naughty Anthony" as guests of Manager
Scott and The Globe.
The contest will close Monday evening at precisely five

supremacy between the freshmen and the
sophomores at Hamline university, 'i he
end came last night, when a number of
sophomores tried in vain to keep D. F.
Kennedy, president of the freshmen ol2«s,
from attending the banquet given by
the class to the freshmen juniors. Th>ir
plot failed almost at the last moment,
and they have thrown up the sponge,
with the statement that they have had
war sufficient.
They made their final attempt to break
up the social affairs of the freshmen
last night by capturing Mr. Kennedy
about 5 o'clock, as he was leaving a bar
ber shop. He was seized and handcuffed
and tied to a ladder. The ladder was
taken up by a dozen or more husky sec
ond-year -men, and the prisoner was car
ried cross lots to the state agricultural
school and. put in a vacant room in the
building. His feet were shackled, and
as there was no ftre in the room, a blan
ket was thrown over his head and two
sophomores left to guard him.
Kennedy, under cover of the blankets,
managed to free one hand, and it was
not then a difficult matter to get his leet
free. When he had accomplished this he
made an unexpected and successful dash
for liberty. He evaded his pursuers, and
ran to woman's hall, where the young
women of the class had congregated to
await their escorts, who were to come
in a body to protect themselves from the
attacks of the sophomores.
He arrived just in time to mix up in
a merry affair between about fifty fresh
ies and sophs. The former were victo
rious, however, and carried their girls
and their president off to the feast,
where the latter made his speech unmo
lested, and the war between the two
classes has ended with the laurels decid
edly with the first-year men.

WITNESSES ARE SHY
COUNTY ATTORNEY NO'LLE.S Phil*.
JIRY CASE AGAIXST
BARTLETT
ECHO OF OLSON DAMAGE SUIT
Mr. Kane Accuses Soo Road Official*
of Breaking Faith and Trifling
Witt Legal Machinery
:\ ■■;■ --'.of,' State. ••"'.■.'.'"//-:'■.;„
County Attorney Kane found yesterday
that several of the most important wit
nesses for the- prosecution in the case
of Theodore Bartlett, charged with per
jury, were not available, and on his mo
tion the indictment was nolled.
In connection with th« failure of vhese
desired witnesses to be present at this
time, Mr. Kajie accused the officials of
the "Soo" road of trifling with the legal
machinery of the state.
This criminal charge against Theodore
Bartlett is an outcome of the first trial
of the damage suit against the "Soo"
road, which was held in June, 1901. Bart
lett was one of the witnesses for the
plaintiff, and after he had given his
testimony was placed under arrest by or
der of Judge Brill on a charge of per
jury, which was based largely upon his
own admissions. He was indicted, and
the case came on for trial Wednesday,
but at that time the second trial of the
Olson damage suit was still in progress,
and the county attorney asked for a con
tinuance, for the reason that some cf
the records which he would want were
then in use.
The witnesses whose presence was 6e
sired and who were found to be missing 1
when the case was called yesterday arc
M. D. Greiner and James C. Hutchison,
engineer and fireman who were on the
locomotive at the time of the accident
to Olson at Enderlin, and Rev. T. A. Ol
son, of Enderlin. Mr. Kane said that
he had been assured by the officials of
the Soo road that they would have the
witnesses here for the trial of this case,
and he relied upon that assurance, as
two of the men were in the employ of
the company. He said further that he
had seen indications of a change of heart
on ihe part of the company. He had re
ceived a telegram from Rev. T. A. Ol
son, which said: "I withdraw promise
to come tomorrow; will not come."
He told the court that he had witnesses
present to prove the admissions made by
Bartlett, but could not establish a case
without the others.
