CITY OWES WATER
Bill Is Chiefly for Water
Furnished for Fire
St. Pmil has a record of being fair
ly prompt in the payment of its obli
gations, but tin-!" Is one debt that is
piling up, and the animal statement of
the water department, just issued in
printed form, takes two pages in pub
lishing the fact to the world. Ii is for
water furnished for flre protection
purposes since 1892.
The total amount which the board
of water commissioners says is o
it from the city is $748,916.55, and the
is increasing yearly. Last year
nearly $37,000 was added to the
amount, and this year will see an ad
dition of a like sum. The board of
education is in debt to the department
to the extent of $1,173.39.
The city's entire debt is further in
creased by retained frontage taxes
and changes In mains to the extent of
nearly $79,000. The board is not press
ing the claims, Inn it is carefully car
rying them over from year to year,
and hopes at no distant date to com
pel Hi" city to disgo
Lasl year the department added 879
new customers to its lisi. and is now
serving 18,792 patrons with healthful
water. When the water system was
first installed the number of patrons
was thirty-four. The number of me
ters in use at the present time is 6,449.
The department did an excellent bus
iness last year, and points with pride
to the fact that the number of appli
cations for water was the largest since
1892. When the city purchased the
plant there were about L',ooo patrons.
SHOWS HIS BACK TO
JURY IN COURTRCOM
Plaintiff, Claiming He Was Burned
With X-Ray Machine, Is Exhibit.
The $22,500 persona] injury damage
suit brought by William Henslin
against Di s. Wheaton, Rogers & Den
nis, was commenced before Judge Orr
and a jury yesterday. The plaintiff
was on the stand all afternoon.
Dennis swallowed a gold crown and
went to the defendants for treatment.
He alleges thai he was subjected to an
X-ray treatment, which burned his
body and injured him permanently, and
for this reason he brought suit, claim
ing the doctors- had not employed the
best methods in treating him.
That the jury might be able to de
termine to what extent he was injured,
Henslin was partially stripped in court,
and the jurors examined the marks on
his back said to have been caused by
the X-ray treatment. The trial of the
case will be resumed Monday.

TO DONATE $100,000
Treasurer Werner, of Famine Relief

N. O. Werner, treasurer of the cen

Minnesota. Up to Thursday the total
amount forwarded was $66,000, of
which $22,000 had been remitted to
Sweden, $10,500 to Norway, and $27,500
The remittances were $1,175 in ex

daily this overdraft is not considered
serious by the treasurer.
In addition to the general fund some
of. the contributors made special re

money was to be forwarded, and spe

WITH HER FIRST
Esther Sterling, an Excelsior
Girl Engaged to Wed Al
bert Blum, Runs Away
With George Weeden to
St. Paul Where They Are
After making- all preparations for her
marriage to Albert Blum, a fireman on
the Omaha road", to whom she was to
be married next Tuesday evening-, Miss
Esther Sterling-, of Excelsior, Minn., a
girl of eighteen, suddenly changed her
mind and yesterday eloped to St. Paul
with George Weeden, of Minneapolis,
where the couple were wedded yester
day afternoon by Court Commissioner
Weoden and Miss Sterling were for
merly lovers, but quarreled, after which
Miss Sterling met Blum and became
engaged to him. She spent the winter
with relatives in St. Paul, but two
weeks ago returned to her mother's
home at Excelsior, to prepare for her
marriage to Mr. Blum, which.was to
be solemnized at Excelsior next Tues
day evening-. All of the preliminary
preparations for the wedding had been
made, even to the inviting of a few in
timate friends, and the renting of a
cottage in St. Paul.
T"]">n a dale from one of her girl
friends Miss Sterling- sent an invitation
to Weeden, her former lover, asking
him to be present at the wedding.
Weeden didn't wait for the time stated
in the invitation, but went to Excelsior
early yesterday morning and called at
the Sterling home. He was met at the
door by Mrs. Flora Sterling, the gill's
mother, who informed him that it
would bo impossible i"<>r him to see her
daughter, but upon his plea for one
moment's conversation .with the girl.
that he might return to her a ring
which he bad, an audience was grant
ed. Ten minutes later the girl had
agreed to clone with him.
Takes a Walk With George.
Telling her mother that slje was go
ing- to "walk as far as the depot with
George," the girl left home, but instead
of stopping at the station she boarded
a train with him and came to the Twin
Cities. At Minneapolis the elopers
were joined by Jacob Margolis, a friend
of "Weeden's, and the trio reached St.
Paul late yesterday afternoon, where
they secured a license and we/c mar
ried at the office of the court commis
sioner. After the ceremony the party
went to Minneapolis, where they will
make their home. Mr. Blum went out
on his run yesterday and has not an
yet been apprised of the marriage of
Miss Sterling- to another man.
"I guess you might as well print it,"
said the bride to The Globe repre
sentative, alter the ceremony had been
performed. "Mamma has doubtless
guessed what is up by my not coming
home, and Bert will have to learn of it
somehow. It's too bad I had to disap
point my friends who had been invited
to the wedding next week, but I'm not
at all sorry for what I have done."
Indications Point to Rising Tempera-
ture and Clear Sky.
The indications point to fair weather
for today. Although yesterday was a
cloudy, cold, windy day. it was official
ly pronounced "fair" by the weather
authorities. This condition is meas
ured by the observers according to pre
cipitation. No matter what the other
conditions may be, if there Is less than
one one-hundredth of an inch of pre
cipitation, it is a "fair" day. But to
day, it is predicted, will be a truly
blight day, with the mercury mounting
According to the reports from the
lower Mississippi valley last night, the
heavy rains still continued.
The temperature in the Canadian
Northwest is rapidly rising; the ther

registering zero against 20 below

Third street, from Wabasha, in pos
session of the stolen property, the offi

in the central police station. Although
his deed of bravery was witnessed by
scores of people, none offered to go
to the officer's assistance.
It developed that the horse and
wagon which Mitchell had in his pos
session at the time of his apprehen

named Cohen, on the West side, and

MOVES TO QUASH THE
Attorney Says Names of All the Wit
nesses Were Not Indorsed on It.
The legality of the indictment re
turned by the January grand jury
against William L. Keefe, in which the
broker was charged with attempted
jury bribing, was attacked in the crim
inal court yesterday by Samuel A. An
derson, attorney for Mr. Keefe, who
asked the court to quash the indict
ment on the ground that the minutes
of the grand jury showed that fifteen
witnesses had been called before that
body to testify in the Keefe case, and
that the names of only ten of this
number had been entered on the back
of the indictment. Mr. Keefe was al
lowed to withdraw his former plea of
not guilty and the motion to quash will
be heard Saturday, April 4.
The law requires that all witnesses
called before the grand jury in a case
be indorsed on the indictment, but it is
contended that this rule was violated
in the Keefe case to such an extent
that the indictment is invalidated. It
is further contended by Mr. Keefe that
one of the witnesses, A. H. Bright, at
torney for the Soo road, was and is his
open, avowed and deadly enemy.
Attorney Anderson stated that he
had only recently been able to secure
the minutes of the grand jury, and be
fore he had done so was not aware
that the names of some of the v it
nesses had been omitted from the in

The District of Columbia supreme
court yesterday decided adversely to
PMrst Lieutenant Frank B. Edwards
and Second Lieutenant Henry M.
Daugherty, both of the artillery corps,
who petitioned for a writ of manda
mus to compel the secretary of war
and the adjutant general of the army
to restore them to the numbers they
formerly held in the list of their re
spective grades. The decision affects
many other officers. Both men are
West Pointers. It was contended that
in rearranging the list of officers many
new officers, appointed from civil life
and otherwise, months after the peti
tioners had received their commis
sions, were given credit for their for
mer service in the volunteer branch,
and therefore now hold lineal rank
miu-h higher than the petitioners. The
court held that it had no jurisdiction
to interfere with the discretion and
judgment vested in the secretary of
war. The petitioners appealed.

The fourteenth annual commence
ment exercises of the V. of M. school
of agriculture were held yesterday in
drill hall at St. Anthony Park, com
mencing at 2 o'clock.
The programme was short and in
teresting and agreeably interspersed
with musical selections by Danz's or
chestra. Rev. R. N. Avison offered the
opening prayer, and was followed by
Principal Frederick D. Tucker, who ! •
livered the introductory address, in
which he told of the aims of the fac
ulty, their desires and the earnest!' ss
and solicitude with which they had
guided the class of '03 through ill"
course of learning.
On behalf of the staff of instructors
Principal Tucker tendered sincere
thanks to the outgoing class for the
application it had exhibited and the
very creditable showing it had made
as a body In the recent examinations.
Th<? salutatory address, "The Busi
ness of Housekeeping," was read by
Annie 1.. Wilkihs, who exhibited a \
extensive acquaintance with the affairs
of woman's domain. Many things were'
touched upon in this paper that were
as striking in their originality as sur
prising in their simplicity.
"The Farmer and the Middleman,"
by Oscar M. Olson, told of many la
mentable existing conditions easily
remedied If due consideration was only
given them from the proper quarter.
He showed, indubitably, that in the
majority of cases the farmer pays 25
[ " cent more for necessary commodi
ties than is actually necessary; simply
because more dealers handle and shaMe
a profit from the greater part of com
mercial commodities than there Is any
need for from the moment they leave
the manufacturer and are deposited in
the home of the consumer.
Able Paper on "Forestry."
It is just possible that the heartiest
applause was accorded the able paper
of Arthur W. Peterson on "Forestry."
Mr. Peterson showed that it was pos
sible to grow timber, which would f>e
salable in eighty years, upon the 2,000,
--000. acres of arid land now lying in a
waste condition in the slat.' of Min
nesota. It was shown that almost all
the states in the Tni-m were making
provisions for the preservation and in
stallation of forestry reserves.
'"The Black Forest of Germany," said
Mr. Peterson, "is about ninety-six miles
in length and from fourteen to thirty
miles in width: and within its limit's
there are to be found countless vil
lages, towns, parks, country places and
some farms. So that on tlie score of a
forest- being a waste pla< c no objection
can be raised."
The speaker thjen went on to show
that this state was the very firsi in
the Union to recognize the vast merits
of forestry, had formed the first fores
try association and had made provi
sion for the first state university .lass
on the subject. Then the wonderful
pecuniary profits derived from forestry
were demonstrated by percentage, and
the statement was made that "govern
ment bonds may vacillate and fluctuate
in value by the changes in national
and international conditions, but the
profits to be derived from forestry will
remain the same as long as the natural
conditions of sea, air and soil remain
How to Furnish a House.
Cora F. Peters followed with a short
paper on "Furniture and Furnishings."
The different styles and types of furni
ture were ably dealt with, from the
rude, handmade chairs and tables of
our forefathers, down to the elaborate
and costly pieces of today fashioned in
rarest woods. Then followed the ar
rangement of the different pieces, with
particular stress upon the very essen
tial point of not crowding a room with
too much array. "•Room," said Miss
Peters, "'is absolutely a necessity in
order to show to advantage the more
effective pieces which every well
furnished room contains.
"In the matter of pictures one has to
be careful—very careful. The condi

something. The quality and not the
quantity should be the great object.
The frame is a very essential part,
but should not outvie the picture it
surrounds. The frame is but an acces
sory. The scheme of nature should be
followed in regard to the tones with
which a room is fitted. The dark green
of the grass and the dark brown of the
soil below, with the light blue of the
sky above, should teach us a lesson.

early part of the week when the fore
man, a favorite with Mr. Rosen, quit
and took employment with a rival fur
tannery in Minneapolis.
The tanning of furs Is a secret, only
in possession of a few, and the men
assert .that. Mr. Rosen l>e!n ved he was
being- taken advantage of by the Min
neapolis firm. He then discharged the
assistant foreman, a brother to the
foreman who quit, and when a commit
tee asked for his reinstatement, dis
charged the members of it also.
There was no grievance over wages
Mr. Rosen refused to talk of the
trouble yesterday, beyond saying that
any difficulty that existed between
himself and the men had been settled
to the satisfaction of all concerned.
