PAY BROKERS' FEES
Commissioner Dearth Rules
That Speecial Agents Come
Under Old Law.
Special agents of insurance compa
nies who come into this state for the
purpose of soliciting business for their
companies, will hereafter be obliged to
pay a broker's fee of $10 each, and any
business which they may secure must
be placed through the duly authorized
agents in this state for their respective
This is the substance of a new ruling
made yesterday by Insurance Commis
sioner Dearth under an old law. Here
tofore the state insurance department
has taken the view that the broker's
fee provided by law was effective only
as against residents of the state.
It frequently occurs that a company
having in prospect a particularly big
transaction will send what is known as
an executive special agent to make
sure of securing the business. In the
past no charge has been made against
this class of agents. Upon examina
tion of the law providing for brokers'
licenses, Mr. Dearth has become con
vinced that the special executive agents
come within its provisions and in that
belief he is supported by the attorney
Mr: Dearth also interprets the law to
require that business secured by an ex
ecutive special agent may not be placed
direct, but must go through an author
ized agent of the company in this state.
Circulars setting forth these points
have been issued to all companies do
ing business in this state.
MRS. GEORGE BLOOD
ASKS FOR DIVORCE
Gays Her Husband Refuses to Live
The echoes of another Hudson mar
riage were heard in the district court
yesterday, when Mrs. Hulda BloOd,
wife of George W. Blood, a well-known
insurance man, with offices in the Ger
mania Life building 1, commenced an
action for divorce.
Infidelity is the charge made by Mrs.
Blood against her husband. The couple
were married at Hudson, Wis., Aug. 4,
1897, when the bride was not yet twen
ty years old. Two children have been
born, a girl of five and a boy of two
years. Mrs. Blood says her husband
is not morally fit to have the custody
of the children, and asks the court to
place them in her charge.
For more than a year, Mrs. Blood
charges, her husband has refused to
live with her, and a week ago, she al
leges, he occupied a room in an assig
nation house on East Fifth street with
a woman whose name she does not

St. Paul may soon be in the throes of

was experienced recently in New York,

National Funeral Directors'. Association in Annual Convention in Minneapolis, With Twenty-three States
Delegates ; frorn twenty-three states
were present in Plymouth church, Min
neapolis, yesterday at the opening ses

vention of the National Funeral Di
J. H. McCully, Idaville, Ind., presi
dent of the association, presided. The
day was largely devoted to the read
ing of the reports of the various com

retary of the Maryland state board of
health, gave an interesting talk on the
safety of stripping bodies of persons
who have died of yellow fever.
loons on the Sabbath day, which are
alleged to be kept open in violation of
a Sunday closing law passed by the
last legislature. The grocers have al
ready secured the services of Attorney
John F. Selb and declare they will close
every saloon in the city on Sunday un
less the crusade which is being made
against the grocers, who keep open on
Sundays, is called off.
The Sunday closing law was passed
at the instance of the Retail Clerks'
associations of St. Paul and Minneap
olis, its object being to give the clerks
one day 6t rest in the Week. Recently
there have been a number of arrests
for violations of the law, but the vic
tims in each instance have been gro
cers, and now the grocers are up in
arn|p and declare they will close the
town up tight on Sundays if the au
thorities persist in enforcing the law
regarding the grocers.
The action is not being taken by the
Grocers' association, but by the small
grocers, whose places of business are
largely in the outlying districts. These
grocers complain that the Sunday clos
ing law works a hardship upon them
for the reason that they are compelled
to carry large stocks of fruit and other
perishable goods for which there is al
ways a large Sunday demand. Unless
they can open vp v and sell these goods
the fruit stands get the business and
sell groceries, too, and the grocers are
left out in the cold.
"It is the intention of the small gro
cers to join together and demand some
sort of protection for themselves," said
Attorney Selb yesterday. "A number
of them have called upon me to see
what can be done in the matter, and
it is their intention to close up every
saloon and every other place of busi
ness in the city which is being illegally
kept open on Sunday. The grocers are
determined to make the crusade a
sweeping one, and I have been in
structed to proceed in the matter as
soon as matters can be arranged for
the fight, which will undoubtedly be a
The section of the law under which
the grocers have been prosecuted and

TO DISCUSS FUNERAL AFFAIRS
According to the experiments of the
army physicians during the Spanish
war, who made a careful study of the
disease with respect to its contagious
qualities, it was found that the dis
ease spread solely through the agency
of a certain species of mosquito. In
the experiments, healthy persons were
submitted to the bites of insects which
had been coptured after having bitten
yellow fever patients and in all but one
instance out of twenty-five the sub
jects were stricken.
Other persons were allowed to sleep
in the garments which had been worn
by patients who had died from the
ous of late and I don't intend to allow
the public to be discommoded any
longer. I am not afraid of the walls
falling, but there is liable to be an
accident on account of the close prox
imity of the car tracks to the narrow
space over which pedestrians have to
M. J. O'Neil, the owner of the build
ing, and the Leslie Paper company, the
occupants ai the time of the collapse,
are now fighting it out in the courts to
see who shall make the needed repairs,
and Mr. Rundlett fears that It will
take months to reach a decision.
Mr. Rundlett was informed yester
day that a compromise was in progress
and pending it, he has given the own
ers a few days' grace before taking
the matter in his own hands.
Used Shears Instead of Razor.
George James, colored, had an alter

the tailor trouble ensued. James seized
a pair of shears and went for the tailor,
but Patrolman Galvin arrived before
any serious damage resulted. Bern

Residents of Logan District
on That Condition —A. F.
Crounse Will Conduct Manual
Training at Humboldt High.
On condition that the actual school
attendance shall be kept up to twenty,
the board of school inspectors has con
sented to reopen the Logan building,
which is located beyond Como.
This was decided yesterday at a
meeting of the committee on schools,
and as the committee comprises the
full membership of the board, its ac
tion may be regarded as decisive, al
ithough the formality of approval by
the members as g.. board will not be
consummated until next Wednesday
The action of the committee is in re-
fever, but they were 1n rooms closely
screened to prevent the entrance of
Not one of these succumbed to the
disease, which proved conclusively that
unless the fever germ is instilled into
the blood the disease is not, contagious.
A further proof of the truth of the
demonstration was sighted by the fact
that for 149 years previous to 1901 Ha
vana had never, been free from the dis
ease. >i -
Since that-titrae; there has noc been a
single case in! the town in w lich the
fever has been fctintracted from another
sponse to a petition largely signed by
residents of the Logan school district
and presented ,at a recent meeting of
the board by a delegation, that point
ed out that the nearest of the other
public schools ip located at the state
fair grounds an^ythe distance is too
great to be traveled by the smaller
children of the liOgap district.
The original '.pai-pose of the board to
close the Logaai building f^r the com
ing year came from the fact that the
enrollment of lastf year was but eigh
teen at its highest land the average at
tendance but twelve pupils. Confer
ences between the members of the
board and the representatives of the
petitioners led to a promise that the
attendance .would be increased to
twenty pupils and a consequent agree
ment on the part of the board that the
school shoujd be reopened. It is un
derstood that if tli£ attendance shall
fall below the number specified the
school will be closed.
Miss Zada Judd, who was formerly
teacher at the Logan school, was re
appointed to that position. Miss Judd
had not, up to this time, been assigned
for the coming year, as the board an
ticipated that some arrangement for
the opening of the Logan building
could be effected.

MANY PARENTS; WANT
THEI^CFTiLPREN TO WORK
Supt. Smith .Says He Has Received
» A. J. Smith, superintendent of city
schools, says that he has received this
year an unusually large number of
applications for excuses from attend
ance at school on behalf of children
whose parents want them to work.
The terms of the child labor law of
this state are such that the superin
tendent of schools may, after investi
gation of a case, issue an excuse on
certain conditions. The department
has at all times since the adoption of
this law found a great deal of trouble
by reason of the falsification on the
part of the parents in regard to the
children's ages and other essential
points, and this work entails very rigid
BIG EXHIBIT OF
BUTTER THIS YEAR
Nearly Twice as Many Samples as at
Experts who have seen butter sam
ples entered at the fair say the best
showing is made by the new cream
eries in the northern part of the state,
and not by the much-vaunted dairy
district of Southern Minnesota. This
is attributed in part to the fact that
the older exhibitors have become care
less and prone to fall back upon their
old reputations of former years, rather
than to Ret out and make new con
quests. It is also believed to be in
some measure due to the fact that in
the new creameries everything is sweet
and clean, and all the surroundings are
clean, and these conditions are con
ducive to purity of the milk and the
production of a high grade of butter.
■ Last evening the delegates enjoyed a
trolley ride to Minnehaha Falls, where
light refreshments were served.
Today's session will be a short one
and will consist chiefly of addresses.
Among those who will speak are Pres
ident Cyrus Northrop, of the state uni
versity; S. A. Smart, general baggage
agent of the Great Northern road; Dr.
H. M. Bracken, secretary of the Minne
sota state board of health, and W. P.
Hodenschu,h, ex-president of the asso
This afternoon the members will be
taken for a drive about the city.
Samples have been received from
creameries as far north as Cass and
Crow Wing counties. There already
are almost twice as many samples en
tered as were exhibited last year. The
double test adopted this year, to take
into consideration the keeping quality
of butter, the experts say, will bring
some surprises for exhibitors who have
been carrying off the prizes.

NOT YET FILLED
Engineer Rundlett Says He May
Take a Month to Pick a Man
to Suit Him.
City Plumbing Inspector Coff. con
victed of assault, was officially re
moved from office yesterday, and now-
City Enginer Rundlett is busy dodging
applicants for the vacant job.
The local Plumbers' union insists
that a member of their organization be
appointed and the master plumbers are
equally insistent that a man agreeable
to them be named. The union is un
derstood to have presented the name of
Patrick Conroy, while a son of one of
the local boss plumbers is being back
ed by the Master Plumbers' associa
"lt may be a month before I name
Coff's successor." said City Engineer
Rundlett yesterday. "There is no hur
ry, and at the same time I might say
that I intend to use my dim judgment
in the selection. I want a competent
man, and I will not be dictated to in
his selection. .When, one is-appointed
he will be satisfactory to all parties."
It is not generally known that the
Job of city plumbing inspector pays a
salary of $140 a month. On the de
partment, books the job is listed at $70.
but the local union, ever since the of
fice was created, has backed it up with
$70 more from the union's own coffers.
This was what Coff drew and his suc
cessor will get the same. For the ex
tra $70 the Inspector acts as business
agent for the union.,
If a man agreeable /> "them is ap
pointed, the master plumbers are will
ing to pay an additional $70 also, as
they admit, with the union, that $70 ia
no wages for a.plumber. He can make
more than that as an employe.
City Engineer Rundlett said last
night that he thought .the extra fee
had been done away with, as it had
been the cause of considerable trou
ble in the past. "I thought that was
broken up long ago," was his remark.
The union contends that the city
cannot do otherwise than appoint one
of its number to the job, as the law
creating the office demands that it be
filled by a competent man. Every
plumber in St. Paul belongs to the
union, and for that reason they say
Mr. Rundlett has no alternative
than to appoint one of their number.
The plumbers, as a union, have not
as yet decided what action they will
take in the Coff case. The union will
not meet until next Tuesday night, and
thus far the members have taken no
action regarding Coff's dismissal. It
was stated at -Federation hall last
night that the plumbers would not
take any action whatever in the case.
Coff yesterday paid two fines, aggre
gating $75, imposed upon him by Judge
Hine. He was fined $65 on an assault
and battery charge and $10 on a dis
orderly conduct charge.

afternoon, "and I did not see a vacant
house. People of whom I inquired
said there was not a house for rent in
the ward. Applications for* houses,
they told me, were numerous and many
renters were taking advantage of the
demand by subletting rooms."
How St. Paul is going to care for
the people, Mr. Ellerbe says, is a seri
ous problem, for of over 700 residences
erected this year, outside of several"
apartment houses, only about 50 of
the number have been built for rental
purposes. The others were constructed
for immediate occupancy by the own
"What is needed in St. Paul Is cot
tages," said Mr. Ellerbe. "They are the
most in demand, but as a result of past
bad speculation St. Paul has just the
reverse—big barn-like frame buildings
that are an expense to the average
man of moderate circumstances. I
know of one man in St. Ant hony Park
who has seventy small frame resi
dences of the kind that are now in de
mand, and he informs me that for the
past eight years he has not missed a
month's rent from any of them. And
they bring him a good price, too."
Mr. Ellerbe says that the men with
money cannot be blamed for their
present inactivity in respect to resi
dence building, as they have been se
verely bitten in the past. If the de
mand continues, however, he expects
to see over 2,000 new small houses
added next year to St. Paul's large list
Building associations also, he thinks,
will begin soon to help out the strin
gency, as this is a fruitful time for
them and they will soon take advan
tage of it.
