CHARTER IS VALID
so DECLARES judge, kelly IN
wabasha BRIDGE ASSESS
■ MENT MATTER
POWEE OF EMINENT DOMAIN
Conrt Overrules Objectors' Conten
tion Tbat Charter Commission
Had No Authority to Confer
Such Power to City.
Judge Kelly filed his decision yester
day in the matter of the Wabasha street
bridge assessments, so-called, the broad
effect of which decision may perhaps be
best expressed in the brief but compre
hersive paragraph with which the court
concludes his memorandum in the case
and which reads as follows:
"On the whole case I am satisfied that
the present charter of St. Paul is valid."
This matter came before the court upon
the application of the city treasurer for
judgment against the real estate delin
quent upon the assessment for the con
demnation of lot 4, in block "D,"' and lot
4, in block "H," for the approaches,
piers and abutments of the Wabasha
street bridge at its south end and the
objections of certain of the assessed
property owners to the assessments. The
objectors were abcut sixty-five in num
The court in his order denies the
treasurer's application for judgment as
to lots 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6, in block 9,
of Robertson's addition to West St.
Paul, sustaining the objections of Ed
ward Habern an with reference to that
It is also oidered that the application
of the treasurer as to a number of lots
owned by the Chicago Great Western
road and the objections of that com
pany shall be continued until the March
term of covrt upon the one question as
to how much of the property is in actual
use for railroad purposes.
All o£ the other objections filed are over
ruled, and the application of the city
treasurer is granted in all other cases
except those referred to above.
As to the objectors' contention that the
charter confers no authority upon the
council and board of public works to
condemn property for briuges as for
piers, abutments or approaches to bridges
the court holds that every bridge is under
the law a highway and therefore the
authority referred to is unquestionable.
One of the principal poi 'ts urged by the
objectors was that the charter commis
sion had not authority either to confer
on the municipality the power of eminent
domain, or prescribe for tnis district court
the methods and procedure set out in the
charter in condemnation and assessment
cases- Commenting upon that contention
the court says that if the point is well
taken the city of St. Paul is practically
without a charter, except as it relates to
the police department, which the supreme
court has held valid.
However, the court holds that in the
"freeholders' charter" of luOO, the ccm
mission merely recommended to the peo
ple and the people adopted word for
word what was always before the law as
enacted by the legislature. .
As to the contention that «-Je commis
sion cannot confer upon the municipality
the right of eminent domain the court
says: "Neither in the constitution or in
the enabling act or in any general law of
the state is the authority denied to the
commission to frame a charter contain
ing the power of eminent domain and
therefore the commission was within its
authority when it framed this charter,
consistent with and subject to the laws
of the state,' and the people—the source
of all political power—having ratified and
adopted it the charter is valid.
E. S. Durment, who is attorney for a
number of the objectors said yesterday to
The Globe that tne case would, with
out question; be carried up to the supreme
Speaking of the decision, Mr. Durment
said: "It is just about w-at I expected.
I anticipated that the court would uphold
the validity of the charter and perhaps it
would have been unreasonable to expect
anything else. I think, however, that this
suit will bring about changes in the mode
QUESTION OF NEGLIGENCE.
Widow of Alline Dixon Suing North-
em Pacific Road.
In the United States court yesterday
Judge Lochren heard the case of Alline
Dixon, administratrix of the estate of
Chauncey A. Dixon, deceased, against trie
Northern Pacific Railway company. There
was no jury, as the arguments were upon
stipulated facts. The plaintiff intestate
was a fireman on the Northern Pacific
road, and was killed in a collision be
tween freight trains Dec. 25, 1899, near
Drummond, Mont. On the part of the
company it is contended that the negli
gence of the telegraph operator, or train
dispatcher, at Bonita. Mont., which
brought about the accident, was a case
of carelessness on the part of one of
Dixon's fellow servants, and not attrib
utable to any negligence on the part of
ANGELL JURY DISCHARGED.
Could Not Agree on Case Against
The jury in the damage suit of William
C. Angell against the Great Northern
road, which went out Thursday after
noon, had reached no agreement at 5
o'clock yesterday afternoon. As there
was no indication at that time that an
agreement could be reached, the jury
was discharged by Judge Lewis.
Angell, it appeared from the evidence,
was a menVber of a construction crew at
Kliva, Mont. , and when injured was in
a- box car preparing a meal for his fel
low workmen. It was alleged that owing
to an open switch, which was attributed
to negligence, a train collided with the
box car in which Angell was at work
and he was thrown down. It was repre
sented that he had suffered injuries to
his eyes and to his right leg. He de
manded damages of $25,000.

his complaint in another of the suits to

Walter B. Bourne while he was deputy
county auditor. In this action, as in the
former ones, the county commissioners
arc plaintiffs and the defendants are
William R. Johnson, the present county
auditor, and the National Security com

amount it is alleged was embezzled by
Bourne during Mr. Johnson's incumbency
as county auditor.

of the defendant and was killed last
summer while working on the dredge

in a, rope which was being wound around

Court Holds That It Would Be In.
equal Taxation—Signed Release
In Personal Injury Case
The state supreme court yesterday
handed down two decisions, both opin
ions being written by Justice. Brown Tfc e
most important is a decision which de
clares unconstitutional the law placing
a 2 per cent lax upon the property of
freight lines in Minnesota.
The decision is in the case of the state
against the Canada Cattle Car company,
<a West Virginia corporation, to recover
taxes for-1898, together with interest and
penalties, amounting all told to $480. The
decision also involves about thirty other
companies owing the state $9,100.
The decision affirms one by the Ram
sey county district court.
The right of the state board of equali
zation to fix a taxable value upon the
property is conceded, but the decision
says the state law of 1897, fixing an arbi
trary tax rate of 2 per cent is void, be
cause it violates section 1, article 'J, of
the constitution, which requires that tax
ation shall be" equal.
The other decision affirms the judg
ment of the Hennepin county court in
favor of Jacob Schus in a personal in
jury suit vs. Powers-Simpson company.
The company operated a logging road
at Hibbing. Schus was employed as
brakeman. While coupling cars one dark
night he was thrown under the train
While Schus was in the hospital an
agent of the company called and pre
sented him with $75, and at the same
time induced him to sign a paper, which
afterwards proved to release the com
pany from liability for damages.
Schus subsequently testified that he did
not knew that he was signing such re
lease, and that he regarded the $75 as a
The testimony also showed that the
engineer had disregarded the usual cus
tom of stopping his engine v.iien the cars
came together, and had backed it so
hard that the rear car had passed over a
large log of wood placed on the track
to block the wheels. Schus had warned
the engineer to be careful.
The jury gave the plaintiff a verdict
Which the courts sustain on the ground
that Schus was not guilty of contributory
negligence, and that the release he
signed under a misapprehension was not

Simpson Company, a corporation, ap
1 Defendant is a corporation organized
for the purpose of manufacturing and
dealing in lumber; buying, improving,
selling and dealing in real and personal
property connected with its lumbering
business; and in addition thereto and
in connection therewith, it owns and oper
ates what is called a "logging railroad"
which is equipped with four locomotives
and a number of logging and box cars
used in carrying logs fom the pineries
to the saw mills owned and operated
by it! It does not follow the business
of a common carrier of passengers and
freight, the operation of the road being
limited exclusively to its own private
business, but its servants and employes
er.gaged in the operation of its trains
art exposed to the same dangers and
risks as are employes and servants of
railroad corporations engaged as com
iron carriers. Held, that G. S. 1594, sec
tion 2761, known as the "fellow-servant
act," applies to defendant, and it is
liable to an employe engaged in the
operation of such railroad for injuries
caused by the negligence of a co-em
ploye or fellow servant.
2. In this connection, one to recover
damages for personal injuries received
by a brakeman in coupling cars on de
fendant's said railroad, the evidence re
ceived on the trial tended to show that
there was a general custom in respect to
the operation of the road for the engi
neer when cars being coupled came to
gether, to immediately stop his engine
and hold it stationary until signaled to
again move it by the brakeman making
the coupling. It further tended to snow
that on the occasion complained of this
custom was not observed by defendants
engineer, in consequence of wl*ch jplain
til'C was injured. It is held that the evi
dence was sufficient to vequire the sub
mission of the case to the jury, and to
sustain their verdict to the effect that
such custom existed, and that the engi
neer's failure to follow and observe it at
the time complained of, was the proxi
mate cause of plaintiffs injury.
3. Evidence examined and considered,
and held to sustain the verdict of the
jury to the effect that plaintiff was not
guilty of contributory negligence and did
net assume the risks incident to mak
ing the coupling in question; also to sus
tain the verdict that plaintiff's cause of
action was not settled and adjusted by
an agreement between the parties made
and entered into prior to the commence
ment of the action. Order affirmed.

KEPT AWAY FROM IT
CHARTER COMMISSION' SHITCS AT
DORAVS PLAN TO ABOLiISW
WHEEIOCK AND OHAGE HEARD
Point Out Necessity for Reins Al
lowed Receipts in Their De- Z
partments, anil Create Fa- .
-vorable Impression. Z
The rumored intention on the part of
the charter commission to create for pre
sentation to the voters at the spring
election an amendment calling for the
abolition of the pres-ent efficient police
commission and a return to the oiv. order
of things did not maverialize when that
body met last night.
The subject was not even broached.
The members generally were opposed to
it, while the police committee which met
in the afternoon so emphatically gave its
disapproval, that there is little prospect
of the matter ever being reopened, unless
its instigator, President Doran, insists,
and pushes it to the extent of a debate.
The amendment drafted, it is under
stood, at tile instance of President Doran,
was circulated among the members sev
eral days ago and it was really the ue
sire to discuss the matter that led to the
call far the meeting la- - night. President
issued the call, but what with
minor matters and a conference with
President Wheeiock, of the park board,
and Dr. Ohage, o. the health depart
ment, the police question was never
reached. At the conclusion of the con
ference adjournment was taKen.
Former Mayor Doran's antipathy to the
police commission is well known, and his
desire to have it abolished came as no
surprise. The amendment which he de
sired indorsed was practically a facsimile
of the old regulations, with the mayor
the official head. He would have a-* ap
pointments emanate from that official,
also dismissals. The only difference
from the old requirements is that a sort
of civil service is provided.
Dr. Bridgeman is chairman of the com
mittee on police, but it is said he refuses
to give the proposed amendment his ap
proval. The members of the commission
generally refuse to discuss the matter.
The commission went on record last
night as being opposed to the presenting
of amendments at the spring election.
Instead they will be presented at the
fall election, by which time the enabling
act will have been amended to the extent
of making it intelligible.
President Wheelock, of the park board,
and Health Commissioner Ohage talked
at length on the necessity of the charter
being amended to the extent of allowing
their departments the use of all receipts
and fiscal balances, and argued so well
that the commission .was favorably im
pressed. The keeping of receipts from
concessions, Mr. Wheelock informed the
commission, was necessary for the future
improvement of Phalen park. Without
them nothing can be done. In a previous
report the committee on fiscal affairs op
posed such a scheme.
The commission last night seemed con
vinced and there is little doubt that
amendments In accordance with the
views advanced will be submitted to the
voters at the proper time.
