DERELICTION OF DUTY
CITIZEN MAKES THAT CHARGE
AGAINST ATTORNEY GENERAL
W. L. Mussell Says He Filed a Com
plaint Against an Insurance Company
and That the Attorney General Ad
vised County Attorney Nethaway, of
Washington, to Drop the Matter.
W. L. Mussell, formerly representa
tive of a prominent life insurance com
pany, who recently brought action in
the district court for an accounting,
now declares his intention of bringing
another action. Mr. Mussell claims
that he has documentary evidence of
derelictions of duty oh the part of the
attorney general of the state, and
County Attorney Nethaway, of Wash
Mr; Mussell alleges that in Decem
ber last he filed a complaint with the
state insurance commissioner setting
forth that one of the agents of the
company was unlicensed-and request
ing that the insurance commissioner
prosecute- and fine both the agent and
the company for violation of the laws.
From correspondence in the hands
of Mr. Mussell, he claims that the com
plaint was .forwarded hy Insurance
Commissioner Dearth to the attorney
general's office with orders to prosecute
the parties cited in the complaint.
Mr. Mussell alleges that the presi
dent of the company wired the insur
ance ccpmmissioner several days after
to hold the case in abeyance until the
attorney for the company had reached
the city and could arrange for a set
tlement with Mr. Mussell.
Matter Is Passed Along.
Mr. Mussell asserts that when he
sought to secure a. copy of the com
plaint, which he had filed with the
insurance commissioner, he was in
formed that the paper was in the pos
session of the attorney general's de
partment. The officials in this de
partment, Mr. Mussell states, declared
the complaint had been forwarded to
County Attorney Nethaway at Still
water, with instructions to prosecute
Judge Nethaway, acording to Mr.
Mussell, replied that the attorney gen
eral's department had instructed him to
.drop the matter and that the complaint
had been returned to that department.
Mr. Mussell declares that he is in
a dilemma as to whether to file a new
complaint with the insurance commis
sioner; bring the dereliction of duty on
the part of the attorney general's de
partment to the attention of Gov. Van
Sant or place the facts before the

STEAMER SINKS A SCHOONER
AND FOUR MEN ARE DROWNED
Captain and Mate Are Among the
BOSTON, Nov. 4.—The United Fruit
company's steamer Admiral Sampson,
which arrived here today, reports that
she collided with the three-masted
schooner Charley Bucki, bound from
Eddyville, N. V., for Boston, about ten
miles off the Cape Cod lightship, at 2
o'clock this morning. The schooner
was sunk and Capt. Freeman Huntley,
of Jonesport, Me.; Mate Ulmer Hunt
ley and two seamen of the Bucki were
The mate was a son of the captain.
The lost sailors were Norman Samp
son, of Sydney, C. 8., and Mark Beard,
of Two Rivers, N. S. The Admiral
Sampson had her ventilators carried
away, her port rail damaged and her
topmast broken. Crowley and Cook,
the survivors, say that the collision
occurred in a very heavy fog, and
within two minutes from the time she
was first seen the steamer crashed
into the starboard side of the schooner,
cutting her through to the keelson.
The schooner began to fill immediately
and her heavy cargo of cement car
ried her down in less than three min

VETERAN TELLS THE COMMER
CIAL CLUB SOME UNKIND
THINGS OF ST. PAUL
Poet Is to Be Made One of the Most
Important in the Country, Congress:
man Tells Members of the Club at
the Election Banquet.
"The trouble with St. Paul is that it
has the dry rot, That is the truth and
I am willing to stand by it."
This was the statement made by H.
P. Hall at the election night banquet
given at the Commercial club last
"I am glad that you have shut out
politics. Since I have been a mem
ber of all parties and am not wanted in
any of them, I don't care a cuss about
politics. But I want to say something
about the city that may not coincide
with what other gentlemen have said
"We have done just what St. Louis
did in her struggle with Chicago. We
have got fat, rich and lazy. We have
set back and let others get ahead of
us. We have had a good head start,
what have we done with it?
"I want to contrast this city with
Minneapolis to bring out what we have
not done," and then Mr. Hall continu
ed with a parallel of the industrial
advancement of the two cities much to
the disadvantage of St. -Paul, citing a
number of instances where St. Paul
had opportunities and did nothing.
"Take their Commercial club. They
have a membership of 900, with a wait
ing list of ninety. The club here is
in good shape, but it shows no such a
record as that. The trouble_,jvith St.
Paul is that it has the dry rot. Many
of you will say Hall is an ass, but go
home and think about it and you will
see that I am speaking the truth.
"What I have said may not please
you, but if it has the effect of waking
you up, I shall be pleased. If I
thought it would wake you up I would
stick a red-hot poker through you."
President H. A. Boardman, who pre
sided at the banquet, introduced Mr.
Stevens as the first speaker.
Stevens Gratifies Them.
No speech delivered at the banqfuet
was productive of so much satisfac
tion to the 150 business and profes
sional men assembled there as that of
Congressman Frederick W. Stevens on
the coming improvements at Fort
Mr. Stevens said, in introducing his
subject, that, after a campaign of
many weeks, it was a hard thing to be
asked to speak, especially since they
tabooed set speeches and prevented
him from using the campaign mate
rial with which he was loaded.
The present proposed improvements
at Fort Snelling for which provision
has already been made by congres
sional appropriation, he said, are only
the first steps in a scheme which shall
make Fort Snelling one of the great
est posts in America. The proposed
improvements now projected call for j
$600,000; but the improvements out
lined in the vast scheme of the war
department of establishing a line of
posts along the northern frontier calls
for an expenditure at Fort Snelling of]
$1,500,000 and the expenditure of $2,- j
000,000 for maintenance and supplies.
The government will spend $250,000
by July 1 in the construction of quar
ters for one full regiment of infantry,
two troops of cavalry and two batteries
The further plans contemplate an
expenditure of $300,000 in buildings
and facilities for more troops of cay- ■
airy and artillery. The present reser- }
vation contains 1,537 acres of land; the
next step in the improvement will call
tot the addition of 1,000 acres more at •
a cost of nearly $150,000.
A further step contemplates the erec- •
tion of a military prison for the North
western states, costing $250,000, the
prisoners in which will be used in the :
maintenance of the reservation.
A further contemplated addition is
a remount station, where cavalry
horses, not only for troops in the
Northwest, but for the troops in the
Philippines. This will call for another
expenditure of government money.
To Supply the Philippines.
Still further plans contemplate the
establishment of a large depot for
quartermasters and commissaries' sap
plies, a depot which shall supply not
alone the Northwestern posts, but the
Philippines as well. There are now in
the Philippines 12,000 native troops,
which will be recruited to a strength
of 25,000, while from 25,000 to 35,000
white troops will be maintained.
The government will also put its
own line of railway upon the reserva
tion, so that it may be independent of
any individual line of road. For the
improvement of facilities for access to
the reservation the plans contemplate
the building of a bridge across the
Mississippi which will accommodate
the railway, street, car and team traffic
to and from the reservation.
The picture drawn by Mr. Stevens
evoked prolonged applause from his
D. R. Noyes, who followed Mr. Ste
vens, made some humorous remarks
about the condition of St. Paul, and
followed it with a fervid appeal for
more civic pride and civic spirit.
Don't Mind Your Own Business.
"Some people think that the pros
perity and. advancement of a city will
be served best by everybody minding
his own business. I most emphatically
dissent from that opinion. By a com
bined effort on the part of the busi
ness and professional men of the city
more can be accomplished in a week's
time than can be secured in a year
by the policy of letting things alone."
Judge Jaggard made an earnest plea
for a higher appreciation of the ar
tistic side of civic life, an appreciation
of the beauty with which nature has
endowed our city and state. As an
illustration of the intense commercial
spirit which has subordinated every
vestige of the artistic spirit, he said:
"We have here an arcadia of woods
and fields, a land of smiling lakes and
rippling rivers, with broad blue skies
and hills purpled in mists. The In
dians called it what? Minnesota—the
land of shy tinted waters. And we

Judge Jaggard then went on to speak

daughters went away to win apprecia

"Step in and have your palms read.
Past and future revealed."
The folds of white cotton on which
these words were printed fluttered in
the brisk November breeze that stir
red the St. Paul dust yesterday. Like
a mysterjpus, beckoning finger, they
drew the curious and the credulous into
a certain dingy little Fifth street shop
over the floor of which the alluring
sign was displayed. A newspaperwom
an in quest of a "story" saw possibili
ties in the sign and she paused to
read it again.
'"Step in and have your palm read."
The invitation, in spite of its brevity,
did not lack a certain persuasive elo
quence. . "Past and future revealed."
.There was certainly allurement in these
words. The newspaper woman glanced
uncertainly up and down the street.
Then she caught the derisive grin of a
very big policeman and she hurriedly
stepped inside the dingy little shop.
The Brisk Young Man.
"Wish to have your palm read?" in
quired a brisk young man in a brisk
young voice. The young man sat at
a small table in one corner of the room
"which was really only half a room, for
tall screens shut it off from the rear.
The brisk young man had to ask his
question twice, for the newspaperwom
an was, for a moment, fascinated by
the pictures on those screens. One
showed a tall man in robes that were
probably Egyptian, stroking a, very
large serpent, that was twined about
his neck. The man had a most an
gelic expression on his face, and the
serpent looked playful. The picture
was not a sinister one. On the con

Thtere was just a little impatience
mixed with the briskness of the brisk
young man's tones, and the newspa
perwoman hastened to allay suspicion
by purchasing a little green ticket.
"Step right in, madam," urged the brisk
young man, waving his arm toward
the screens, and the newspaperwoman
stepped, in some trepidation, behind
the angelic faced old man and the
Sometimes in this world things come
quite up to one's expectations. Had

have found it difficult, but as soon as
she. stepped behind that screen, she
knew that her expectations were real
Told in a Red Tent.
In the first place, the room was dimly
lighted. Dim lights and dips into the
future seem always to have a close
association. There were five people
seated in the room. Their faces wore
expressions . half foolish, half defiant.
But it was not these people, who at
tracted attention at first. At the end
of the room, in either corner, were two
scarlet tents, just large enough to
seat comfortably two people. The flaps
of the tents were fastened back and
those seated on one side of the room
could easily .see through the flap 1 of the
opposite tent the palm reader and the
A faint buzz, buzz, buzz of conversa
tion floated out mysteriously from the
two tents. The newspaperwoman
awaiting her turn studied carefully the
faces of those who came out of the
tents. There were two middle aged
women and three young girls. The girls
giggled audibly as they went in and
they, were still giggling when they
came out. Presumably they giggled
through the reading.
J4eard Unpleasant Truths.
Of the two women, one sniffed con
temptuously as she entered, but reap
peared looking visibly embarrassed.
The other was very serious when she
went in, and whatever mysterious rev
elation was made to her, in the little
scarlet tent, it intensified that serious
Finally a face peered out and a hand
beckoned the newspaperwoman, and
presently she found herself seated at
a little table, on which was a small,
scarlet-shaded lamp. She glanced at
the seeress, and was conscious of a
vague feeling of disappointment. She
had never seen a seeress before and
her imagination had never conjured up
one in a vary smart tailored skirt, a
jaunty shirt waist, stiff little stock and
elaborate coiffure. Flowing robes
would certainly have accorded better

she observed, looking up suddenly.
"You have 'had two crushed love af

"Your lungs are affected," she an

Two crushed love affairs' and afflicted

CHRIST CHURCH OPENS
BISHOP EDSALL DELIVERS A CON
Large Congregation Attends the Serv
ices Held to Celebrate the Reopening
—Rev. F. T. Webb, of Minneapolis,
and Rev. W. P. Ten Erceck, a Former
Pastor, Deliver Addresses.
"There is too little permanency in
I the West," said Bishop Edsall, in an
i address delivered before' a large con
gregation at Christ church last night.
"There is no reason why rev%rent con-
I servatism should not go hand in hand
with Western progressiveness. Christ
j church has, I think, united those two
| qualities most successfully and I am
| glad, as bishop of the diocese, to ex
| tend to its beloved rector and its con
! gregation my congratulations tonight."
Bishop EdsaJl was the last of the four
speakers who delivered short congrat
ulatory addresses last night on the
opening of Christ church. Rev. Wil
liam C. Pope, rector of the Church of
the Good Shepherd, and the oldest
Episcopal rector, from point of serv
ice,; in St. Paul, spoke about the early
history of the Episcopal church in St.
Paul. • He said it was a fact worthy of
note that twenty-four members of the
first Episcopal church in St. Pp"l were
represented by their children in Christ
Rev. F. T. Webb, D. D., rector of St.
Paul's church, Minneapolis, said that
he brought with him the congratula
tions of the Episcopalians of Minneap
olis for the successful completion of
the repairs that had been made on
Wide Influence of Church.
"The influence of this church," he
said, "is not limited by the boundaries
of the parish. On the contrary, that
influence extends throughout and be
yond the city of St. Paul."
Rev. W. P. Ten Broeck, D. D., a
former pastor of Christ church, but
now connected with the Seabury divin
ity school, said that he represented the
connecting link between the old his
tory of Christ church and the present
and future history of the church. As a
former pastor of the church, he *aid
that he could not feel entirely an
outsider, yet because he represented a
district outside of St. Paul, he must
bring from that district, the message
of congratulation it had to send. He
was glad that the front of the church
was now standing on firm foundations,
and also glad, that it had not been
necessary to pull down the church it
self, for it was associated with pecu
liarly tender memories in the affections
of the Episcopalians of St. Paul.
Dr. Andrews, of Christ church, con
ducted the services. Rev. William Wil
kinson, /of Minneapolis, read the les
sons. The services were very brief,
consisting of the lessons for the day,
psalms and prayers. The full vested

CIVIL WAR IS ONCE MORE
THREATENED IN HAITI
Seven Men Killed in a Fight Between
Fouchardists and Civil Officers.
PORT AU PRINCE, Haiti, Nov. 4.—
A troop of 1,200 Fouchardists which
entered the capital yesterday, return
ing from the campaign against Gen.
Firminx, and a conflict with the civil
authorities. There was heavy firing
during all the night. Seven persons
were killed ar/l many were wounded.
The situation is grave, threatening a
new civil war.
The disorders continued during the
day, another conflict occurring before
the national bank at 11 o'clock. There
were several victims. The entire pop
ulation is very much alarmed and the
foreigners are claiming protection. It
is believed that the arrival of Gen.
Nord with 1,000 men, which is expected
within the next few days, will put an
end to the disturbances.
Flour Rates Advanced.
SAN FRANCISCO., Cal., Nov 4.—The
Pacific Mail Steamship company has an
nounced an advance in rates on flour
from this port to Central and South
America ports, effective with the depart
ure of the next steamer for the south,
which sails on Saturday of this week.
IN OUR HISTORY
Instructive Figures Culled From tho
Repo.rt of the Commissioner
WASHINGTON. D. C, Nov. 4.—The
annual report of the commissioner ot-
navigation shows that on June 30, 1902,
the documented tonnage of the United
States was the largest in our his
tory, comprising 24,273 vessels of 5,797,
--902 gross tons. The increase over last
year is almost wholly in large steel
steamers. In ten years the number of
American, British and German square
rigged vessels has decreased 50 per
cent. American vessels carried 8.8 per
cent of our exports and imports, com
pared with 8.2 per cent in 1901.
The outlook for steel shipbuilding in
the United States for the current fiscal
year is not so promising as was last
year's. On July 1, 1902, there were
building or under contract in the Unit
ed States 347,500 tons of steel mer
Receipts from tonnage taxes amount
ed to $868,784, of which only $68,173
were paid by American vessels. The
report prints at length the agreement
for trans-Atlantic merger and its fleet
of over 1,000,000 tons, and says:
"The organization of so great a nav
fgation company under American aus
pices is, however, the most important
step toward the establishment of the
influence of Americans on the ocean
which has been taken since, through
the rebuilding of navy, modern ship
building plants were developed in the
United. States. The relations of the
merger to the trade of the United
States will be «xceptio.»al, the only
parallel being the relations of the two
great German lines to Germany's com
merce. The policy of subsidies is the
only method at the -present time by
which American built steamers with
American crews can obtain any con
siderable share of foreign trade."
The repeal of compulsory pilotage on
sail vessels in the coasting trade and
minor changes in the navigation laws
are recommended. The report shows
that the world's foreign-going steam
ers in 1901 were valued at about $1,
--000,000,000, and that gross receipts
were about $850,000,000, out of which
$50,000,000 in dividends and $9,000,000
interest on bonds were paid. Wages to
crews amounted to about $62,000,000.
