THE 36. REASONS OF]
. HARLEQUIN. _
Harlequin's Master failed to keep a dinner
" There are thirty-six reasons for it," said
Harlequin, in apology, to the host,
" The first reason is that he is dead! "
There are fully thirty-six reasons why
Regal shoes, outwear all others, at $3,50.
The first, and all sufficient reason, is that
no make of shoes at $3<50,-except The Regal,
uses genuine Oak Sole leather, in every pair,,
and proves it,
"Live Oak" soling is the costliest, and
toughest foundation, that can be put under any
shoe at any price, ~~ "
"Tannery to Consumer " is the first of 36
reasons why Live Oak soles, and King Calf

DEFENDANT IX SCHADLE SUIT
TELLS HOW IT WAS MADE
Says Dr. Schadle Instructed Him to
Sell One Thousand Shares on Blue
Thursday, When Thing* Were on
Toboggan Market Began to Mi.se
Sows After Sale Was Marie.
Charles H. F. Smith, the defendant
In the suit brought by Dr. Jacob Schadle,
growing out of a speculation In Manhat
tan Consolidated stock a year ago, which
Is on trial before Judge Brill and a jury,
in the district court, was on the witness
stand the entire day yesterday, and
was . subjected to a rigid examination.
He was called by the plaintiff, and as
the examination progressed there were
several legal tilts between the opposing
lawyers, but no sign of bad temper was
shown on either side. Mr. Smith testified
that he was a member of the New York
Stock Exchange, a club organization that
was not Incorporated. The principal of
fice of this exchange was on Wall and
Broad and Maiden streets. New York
city, where, according to current report,
Is located the greatest slaughter house
In the country, with a specialty in lamb
shearing. He had a private wire to cor
respondents in New York, who acted as
brokers for him in executing his orders
for the buying and selling of stocks. Just
as Dr. Schadle was his principal, Smith
was the principal for Clark, Dodge &
Company, and the Wall street firm knew
nothing about Dr. Schadle.
Mr. Smith was next asked to tell the
story "of the transaction in Manhattan
Consolidated stocks, and stated that Dr.
Schadle had telephoned an order for 1,000
shares of Manhattan at 130 on April 22,
par 100. It was placed that same day,
when Dr. Schadle sold I^SW- Southern
Railway, thereby having a 'credit of $12,-
M. Continuing, Mr. Smith stated that
the next Conversation between the prin
cipal and broker was on May 7, when
Dr. Schadle came to Mr. Smith's office
about 9 o'clock and asked the condition
Df the market. Mr. Smith said he told
Dr. Schadle that it was not bullish, and
Dr. Schadle suggested putting up some
more, which Mr. Smith told him he
thought was wise.
Ordered to Sell.
Dr. Schadle offered to sell a 50-foot lot
on Summit avenue, just west of the
Stickney hois.., but Mr. Smith shied at
this offer. The doctor next proposed that
Smith make him a loan, and he finally
consented to take a $15,000 mortgage. The
next time Dr. Schadle came to the office
was on May 9, which is Blue Thursday
in Wall street, and Northern Pacific
common and everything else was on the
tobboggan Mr. Smith stated that he
told Dr. Schadle about 9 o'clock that
the situation might be cleared up, but

Schadle the situation was very serious
and there was no doubt but that the mar
ket might go considerably lower. Dr.
Schadle instructed him to sell his 1,000
shares of Manhattan at the market, and
Smith said that he wrote out an order to
that effect, and, after reading it to the
doctor, passed it to the operator. The
order was sent at 10:05, and read as fol

Mr. Smith admitted to Mr. Butler that
he had. during the day, received a wire
from Clark, Dodge & Company asking
him to put up $50,000, after which Attor
ney Butler asked the defendant if the
sales he made during the day had any
effect upon his margins with the New
York firm. Mr. Smith testified that two
hours after he had sent the order to sell
the Manhattan, he received an answer
to the effect that the New York firm had
sold 900 Manhattan at So and 100 at 84.
tearing taat there was some mistake
he asked that the message be repeated
and found it to be correct and that the
order had been received in Wall street
just five minutes after it had been sent
from St. Paul. Soon aftc*.- tne sale the
market commenced to rise again. Mr
Smith continued to answer questions un
til the court adjourned yesterday after
noon. The case will be resumed Monday

FATHER OF WATERS
UP TO HIS OLD TRICKS
Mississippi Has Risen 14 Inches In
12 Hours and Is Still on
The Mississippi river just now threat
ens to assume a stage that is remarka
ble, following as it does a period When
the snowfall was unprecedentedly small.
It might be said that the, Father of Wa
ters is now "humping' itself.
In twelve hours yesterday the river
climbed fourteen inches, * and,' if any
thing, it was gaining at a late hour last
night on its record of the day. River
men last night were agreed that another
twenty-four Inches would, be added be
fore the finish would come. This win
bring it to the top of the wall which
faces the river along the city levee.
While not an extraordinary rise, yes
terday's jump was viewed by rivermen
in the nature of a surprise. When the
ice went out in the spring the river was
at about as low an ebb as it could get
and with little prospect of an increase
in sight, The intermittent moisture of
iVie^t ast, thr^ weeks, however, has had
its effect, and to this can now be attrib
uted the rise.
During the past four days there have
been Heavy- rains above, and the rise
of yesterday is the advance'guard of
this flood. In the booms above the logs
are pouring in by the thousands, and
the failure of the men in charge to con
trol all of them was shown yesterday
by the large number that dotted the
surface of the river at this point. Drift
wood also was plenty, and the swiftness
of the current carried it and the stray
logs rapidly past tho city. y
For the past two weeks a big dredge
has been working night and day making

in the vicinity of Phalen creek, but if
the rise continues the work will have

Denouncing Street Car
FEELING RAN VERY HIGH
Ringing Speeches Made Urging the
Mayor to Veto Council's Action
■ff ■' '■' '
and Committee Named to
Wait on His Honor.
Whereas, The city railway company,
has always given inadequate and unsatis
factory service on the Grand avenue
Whereas^, It has uniformly broken and
failed to keep the promises to give a bet.
ter and satisfactory service on the Grand
avenue line, which its officers have re
peatedly made; and v. -
Whereas, By some unknown means it
has obtained such control of a majority
of the members of the present common
council of the city of St. Paul that it nas
been impossible to procure the passage
by the -common council of any measure
affecting the interest of the city railway
company, if opposed by the city railway
company, and that it has been able, with
impunity, to operate its lines and to use
lhe streets of the city of St. Paul with
out authority of law and in violation of
the ordinances of the city of St. Paui,
and at its will to disregard the ordi
nances of the city of St. Paul; and
Whereas, The city railway company,
evidently fearful lest the new common
council would not be subservient to its
influences, has signalized its influence
with • the present common council by
causing to be introduced and adopted by
both bodies of the common council meas
ures legalizing the illegal operations of
the said company, giving It without
cause or reason additional rights in the
streets of the city of St. Paul, and con
stituting for it a defense to an action
then pending ready for trial in the dis
trict court which had been brought for
the purpose of compelling it to observe
and obey the ordinances of the city of
St. Paul; and ' ■%■"'
Whereas, The said measure within less
time than three-quarters of an hour
was introduced and passed by both
branches of the common council at a
special meeting evidently called for the
purpose without any opportunity for a
hearing being given the citizens interest
ed, although it was called to the atten
tion of the caramon council that our rep
resentative in that body was absent, and
that the measure had not been before any
committee nor any opportunity given for
protest; therefore f
Be it resolved:
(1) That by its action the common coun
cil of the city of St. Paul has disgraced
the city and that the members of the
said body who voted in favor of said
measures have shown their unfitness to
represent a fair and honest constituency.
(2) That the committee of the Grand
Avenue association is hereby requested,
and authorized to institute, or cause to
be instituted, any and all such actions
cr suits at law as may seem to be neces
sary to compel said city railway company
to comply with the ordinances of the
city of St. Paul and that we hereby
pledge ourselves to render all possible as
sistance in any such.proceedings.
Citizens Are Aroused.
The above resolutions were authorized
last night at, a mass meeting' of Grand
avenue patrons of the St. Paul City rail
way company, held at Ramaley hall to
protest * against the action of the city
council in indorsing an ordinance legal
izing the so-called merger of a number of
its lines, especially the Grand avenue
The meeting was attended by about 100
representative citizens of the district,
but what it lacked in numbers the gath
ering amply made up in some 4ecidedly ve
hement and vigorous language indulged
in by several speakers during the prog
ress of the meeting. The resolutions,
warm enough as they are, were, even
more so when presented for adoption, but
conciliatory advice prevailed, and the red
hued sections were blue-penciled. - — I
The meeting was distinctly representa
tive, and when J. W. D. Corning/ as
chairman, rapped it to order and called
for remarks there was no lack of re
sponses. Attorneys formed a large part
of the gathering, and they were as apt
as they were pertinent in handling the
Questions at issue.
Mr. Markham Urges Action.
As the most conversant with the ord
inance which affects the Grand avenue
patrons of the street car company, Cor
poration Attorney Markham opened the
discussion. He explained the hasty pas
sage of the measure by the council, its
intent, and his inglorious effort to have
the measure laid over until those affect
ed could have a chance to be heard, and
concluded by advising prompt action if
Grand avenue, and the entire city for
that matter, was not to get what the
original ordinances entitled it to, decent
and prompt service.
Of those who followed, while all were
vigorous in their denunciation of the
council's action, D. W. Lawler was per
haps the most vehement. He made no
charges, and used no names, but charac
terized the whole affair as a proceeding
of a high handed order, that no eommur
nlty should tolerate. Courts,, he" con
tended, would have demanded that those
concerned should have had a chance to
be heard before passing the measure. He
was positive that should Mayor Smith
veto the measure the council would not
dare override his action, knowing now,
as it does, how its hasty action is
viewed. . . • . •
Those who followed Mr. Lawler were
E. S. Durment, T. D. O'Brien, T. S.
Peek, F. G. Ingersoll and John Jackson!
They all spoke in an indignant vein, and
agreed that prompt action must be taken
if Grand avenue is to have the service
it is entitled to. The general opinion was
that the stret car company had hastened
the- ordinance through in order to de
stroy the suit which the city had brought
to compel the separation of the Grand av
enue, and Lafayette lines.
At the conclusion of the meeting a
committee consisting of D. W. Lawyer
T. L.' Schurmeier. T. D. O'Brien, Oscar
Hallam, T. J. Bowlin, Joseph lackey
Henry Merrill, J. A. Swenson, John Hart'
U. B. Curtis, Theodore F. Koch, J.
Jackson, W. Rhodes and E. S. Durment
was named to call upon Mayor Smith at 9
o'clock this morning and present the reso
lutions ndorsed. As a delegation repre
sentative of the district affected they will
ask his veto for the measure and show
him why it should be given.
BOUND TO MAKE BIG
SHOW A SUCCESS
Coliseum Committee Will Lend a
Hand to Insure Complete
Sale of Theater. 7
Because of. a misunderstanding as to
the meeting of the board of directors of
the Coliseum association. announced for
yesterday there was no quorum, but a
few :of the active workers of t the board
were on hand and spent some time in in
formal discussion of the more important
affairs of the association yf ..-:'■.
Considerable time .was devoted to con
sideration of the "prospects for the vau
deville entertainment to be given at the
Metropolitan theater throughout next
week, and while it was found that there
remained no doubt but that the engage
ment would be:; a financial success, it
was decided that a committee of the
board should lend a hand from today on
in the sale of tickets to the end that
the v house shall be completely * sold out
for , every performance. The : advance
sale of seats has been good thus far
as would be only : natural considering
that the . programme for this week con
stitutes the best vaudeville performance
ever -put on any: stage! in the West, and
that the price of , stats for this attrac
tion, instead of *. being raised as it must*
necessarily be if under the regular-man
agement of the theater, has . been 1 cut
down. The best seats in the house, with
the exception of those in the boxes, will
be sold for the evening performances for
$1, and the other prices will be 75 * cents,
50 cents and 25 cents. For the matinee,
every day except Sunday, the prices will
be 50 and 25.cents. —
For theJirst time in the history of the
theater the free list has been complete
ly suspended, and not a person outside
of the working crew of the theater will
be admitted to. any 0 the performances
without a paid ticket. So - rigidly will
this rule be enforced that even the crit
ics of the newspapers will be required
to pay their way, and even L. N. Scott,
manager of the theater and manager for
the newspaper "committee in this enter
prise, has paij"l for the 1 box which he
will occupy. ■ . ■ ~
Handbook Issued by Minnesota
Commission in Co-operation
"With lowa and Wisconsin.
A handbook of | literary ~ organization
has just been published jointly by the'
Minnesota, lowa and Wisconsin . state
library commissions. The pamphlet was*
the contribution of the Minnesota com
mission in the co-operation of the three
states. It is intended especially for the
guidance of trustees in the starting of
a library and in carrying out the details
of administration, but much 7of the in
formation is of great value to untrained
librarians, and further information Js j
added for the especial needs of • such
librarians. — *"'" —
The subjects treated are organization,
the housing- of "books.7 administration,
library extension, librarianship, -.""li
library supplies. The directions are a
summing up of the experience of expert
librarians in three .-'* states." Special
articles have been ''contributed by Reu
ben .Goldthwaite,. of Wisconsin, oh
".Local History Collections;" by W. R.
Eastman, on ".Library Buildings," and by
Caroline H. . Garland" on.. "Mounted
Pictures for Circulation." Th<> book
smooths out many of the difficulties ex
perienced in getting new libraries started,
and serves to bring to public attention
more forcibly the importance of the work
being done by the new state library com
mission. To those not interested in the
technical and administrative topics^ the
sections on books and on library ex
tension will be of great interest. In the
department of library extension are dis
cussed methods of advertising libraries,
the library and the children, library clubs
and library talks, country circulation and
the traveling liraries.

It is estimated that the Hamm Brew

share of the rpavir.g now bt>*g done in
the First ward. Not only'this, but last

Some of the streets leading to its plant
were in an-almest impassable condition,
but any attempt to .> pave t>em was
fought vigorously by the property own
ers, who contended that they could not
pay the bill. • Rather .than allow the
streets to remain as they were, the com
pany did the work itself and paid for it.
Another big assessment'that this com
pany has also sustained is that for the
additions to Indian Mounds park. The
board, of public works spread- the as
sessment over a large area, and the com
pany was caught for a pretty penny. I In
all the improvements affecting it, not a

Over 500 Teachers Want to Assist

Papers— 75 Can Land.
Although the next state teachers' exam

State Superintendent Olsen is daily receiv

assist in the reading and marking of ex
amination papers. * At the most not over
seventy readers . can be i appointed, and
most of these have already been selected.
Many of the -readers who • have worked
during the past" three or four examina

the applications coming in daily mean
simply the waste of a postage stamp.
It is expected that the August examina

Constant Rains Have Caused Serious
Setback—Payne Avenue Res

There is a dearth of crushed stone in
St. Paul, and in consequence some of tire
paving operations now on have been ser

constant rains, has caused a setback
that may see some of the streets torn up
until well into next month. .
Payne avenue is the worst disturbed
thoroughfare; in the city just now, and
the protests ; that are being made as a
result are loud and long. The contractors
say they hope to have the street entirely
completed in about three weeks.
In hauling the paving material to Payne
avenue, the abutting streets have to be
used and the heavily laden wagons have I
cut them up terribly. - This, with the rain, I

mined to l»ie Because of Hard Life
Mrs. Maud Santello, a domestic, was
found last evening lying in a smal pool
of water near the Chestnut street levee in
a semi-conscious condition. The lower
portion of her body was completely sub
merged beneath the water and she ap*
peared to be suffering severely from the
cold. From all appearances' she had
been lying there for some time.
The woman was first discovered by two
laborers, who were attracted to the spot
by a faint cry.
They pulled the woman out of the wa
ter, and reported the dlscoverey to tha
police and she was taken to the city
hospital. Her case is not considered
serious, although she is in a precarious
condition as the result of the exposure.
Indications point strongly toward sui
cide, although the theory is not corrob
orated by the story the woman tells. She
says that she simply went on a "i lain
drunk" and laid down near the water
and went to sleep. She claimed to havi
been there since 7 o'clock Thursday
The woman is supposed to be the wife
of Pasquale Santelo, a laborer, although
she has not lived with her husband for
several years. She is also reported to
have served time in Stillwater for big
amy. She boarded at - 296 Chas'nut
street and had been taking in washing
for a livelihood.
Neighbors are of the'opinion that Mrs.
Santello took morphine with suicidal in
tions and went out and laid down near
the river to escape detection. She had
been morose of late, and had several
times been heard to bitterly complain of
her lot in life.
