Coroner's Inquest In Case of
Ruth Teachout Takes
Place This Morning
Two letters now figure in the mystery
which surrounds the death of Miss Ruth
Teachout, the Minneapolis girl whose body
was taken from the river last Tuesday
night near the St. Paul boom. When the
contents of these are known the cloud
surrounding her mysterious trip to the
spot below the falls and the scene which
ensued may be partially lifted.
The letter which Ruth wrote at the
business college the last morning she was
seen alive was addressed to some man in
Battle Creek, .Mich. This much has been
ascertained from statements made by Miss
Cora A. Halverson. the girl who sat be
side Miss Teachout Saturday morning at
the college, and who lives at :.'944 Pleasant
avenue. What the man's name was the
girl does not know, but messages have
been sent to two sisters and a brother of
the dead girl in Battle Creek and the
police are anxiously awaiting a reply from
The police do not believe in the suicide
theory, and think that the letter con
tained something about the picnic which
she expected to enjoy on the reservation,
and disclosed her escort's name.
LettT to Ruth's Parents
The other letter may be of even greater
importance in unraveling the mystery. It
was addressed to the parents of the dead
girl and was received yesterday. Although
all members of the family, were closely
questioned in regard to the letter, nothing
definite could be learned but from a re
mark dropped by Eva Teachout. the sis
ter of Ruth, it is believed that the letter
came from Battle Creek and that its con
tents bear on the case.
The Teachout family continue to main
tain reticence regarding the case. Such
statements as the different members have
already made differ.
Photographs of Ruth were taken to the
reservation and Minnehaha Falls park yes
terday by the officers, but further than
the man found in the park the day before
and the man Bergstrom, no one has been
found who can remember seeing the girl
on Saturday afternoon.
A few relatives attended the funeral of
the girl at Prescott. Wis., yesterday. Mem
bers of the family returned last night
and will attend the inquest this morning.
ChMtf of Police Conroyeaid he had been
unable to find any motive for murdering
the girl. T
"If.she was murdered," said Mr. Con
roy, "it "must have been by tramps along
the river. There is no apparent reason
why- anyone s"houTd wish to murder her,
but I can understand how she might have
been the victim "of criminal assault and
her body .thrown into the river to hide the
evidence against the assailants."

the Ramsey county -mrtrgue this morning
at 9 o'clock. Eight persons have be'en
subpoenaed by Deputy She-riff Hardick, but

LOOTS SALOON SAFE
Thug Holds Up Bartender and
Suspects Are Arrested
Jim Abbotts, bartender at O. P. Clem
ents' saloon, Eighth and Sibley streets,
was held up by a lone highwayman at 2
o'clock yesterday morning. The robber
located a hidden cash drawer and looted
the safe of the money box, getting away
The police yesterday Arrested Charles
McElway and Mike Adams, who, they de
clare, planned the holdup and employed
the footpad to do the work. The police
have learned the identity of the robber
and are now searching for him.
According to the police, McElway, a no
torious crook, and Mike Adams, a St.
Paul bartender, visited Clements' saloon
shortly after midnight, ostensibly to see
whether the coast was. clear. Immedi
ately after they went out, leaving the bar
tender alone, the robber, with revolver in
hand, appeared and ordered Abbotts to
turn over the cash.
Abbotts refused to do so and the thug
then helped himself. He drew out the
money box from the safe, • emptying the
contents in his pocket, and then went to
a drawer in which $20 in change was
usually kept. Abbotts had selected a dif
ferent drawer for that purpose yesterday
morning, and after a little search the rob
ber found the cash in another drawer.
The police suspected Adams, formerly
employed at" the saloon, ard McElway,
who came to St. Paul last night to join
him. Two women with whom they room
over the saloon were also arrested.

IS NOT ILLEGAL
Supreme Court Decides Gas
Company Can SeM By- Prod
ucts to Only One Concern
According to a decision filed by the
supreme court yesterday the St. Paul
Gas Light company has a perfect right
to sell its entire output of coke to the
Youghiogheny & Lehigh Coal* com
pany, to the exclusion of all other
The case came before the supreme
court on the appeal of Charles J. Ber
ryhill, from the decision of the Ram
sey county district court in his ac
tion against the gas company and the
coal company already mentioned. The
ruling of the district court is affirmed.
The supreme court decided that by
products of any concern are not sub
ject to the "unlawful combination"
laws of Minnesota that might apply to
the principal products of the same
concern. The decision was written by
Justice Brown and the syllabus is as
Defendant gas light company is a cor
poration engaged in the business of manu
facturing gas for use by the citizens of
St. Paul. The gas Is manufactured from
soft coal, and one of the residual pro
ducts thereof is coke, which the company
accumulates in large quantities. It is not
engaged in buying, selling or dealing in
coke or other like fuel. It entered into
a contract with defendant coal company
by which it agreed to sell and deliver
to that company all its accumulations of
t:oke. and specially agreed not to sell or
dispose of the same, or any part of it,
to any other person or company. It is
held that as the coke accumulated" by
the gas light company is a mere inci
dent, a by-product, resulting from the
conduct of its principal business, the
agreement to sell its entire output to
defendant coal company was not ah un
lawful combination nor a violation of
any law of the state.
Widow's Claim Not Allowed
That the directors of a mutual in
surance company have a right to limit
the payment of dividends to such pol
icy holders as have paid their annual
premiums was decided yesterday by
the Minnesota supreme court. This
decison, written by Justice Lewis, af
firmed the order, of the Hennepin
county district court denying a new
trial to the plaintiff.
The question came up through an
endeavor on the part of Mary J. Petrie,
of Minneapolis, to recover from the
Mutual Benefit Life Insurance Com
pany of New Jersey $2,500 as the
amount of a policy which her husband
had been carrying since 1881. March.
18, 1901, he failed to pay the annual
premium of $65 due that day. Five
months later he died, before the pre
mium had been paid.
His widow contended that his policy
should haye been credited with a divi
dend declared by the company direct
ors in January, 1901, and that such
credit would have carried the policy
-beyond the date of his death.
Both courts held, however, that this
dividend was payable only tb policy
holders that had paid their anrtual pre
miums : that this limitation "was within
the authority of the directors, aad that,
lacking a cash surrender value suf
ficient amount, the Petrie policy had
already lapsed when Mr. Petrie di6d.
Eight other decision's were announc-;
ed, as follows:
Amy M. Brookhouse, appellant, vs.
Frances J. Pray et al., respondents.
Judgment affirmed. —Douglas, J.
Another Widow Loses
The appellant sued to recover $5,000
-willed to her husband by his uncle,
Samuel F. Pray, of Minneapolis, in
August, 1896, with the provision that,
in case any of the devisees under the
will died before payment was made
to them, and did not leave children or
grandchildren, the bequest should be
paid to the testator's wife, Frances J.
Mr. Brookhouse was dead when the
will was made, although Mr. Pray was
not aware of the fact. The two chil
dren of Mr. Brookhouse died later
without leaving heirs.
Held that, in accordance with the
evident intent of the testator to leave
his estate either to his wife or to his
blood relatives, the bequest should be
paid, not to his nephew's wife, the ap
pellant, but to Mrs. Pray.
The judgment of the lower court in
favor of Mrs. Pray was therefore af

DIVE FINE CONCERT
Chorus From Lund University
Delights Immense Audience
at People's Church
Not since it was 'rebuilt has the Peo
ple's church held so large an audience as
+hat which assembled in it last night to
gieet the student chorus of the University
of Lund, Sweden. Every seat was occu
pied and the many who -were unable to
obtain seats sat on the stairs in the gal
lary or crowded about the different en
trances to the auditorium.
The chorus" more than deserved the
greeting it received from " this immense
audience which was made up largely of
the singers" countrymen. Vocally, it is
splendidly equipped, and the superior
training it revealed made it difficult to be
lieve that the members are college men
and have been singing together only since
their university course began.
The reception they received last night
appeared to inspire them, for they sang
their beautiful Swedish songs with a pas-,
sionate fervor that must have brought
before the eyes of many forgotten scenes
in the well beloved fatherland.
Over the stage hung last night the
American flag and on one side of it
hung the flag of Norway, and on the
other side the. flag of Sweden. An im
mense horseshoe of red and white flow
ers was a conspicuous ornament on the
Chorus Is Most Expressive
The student chorus of the Lund uni
versity is exceptionally well balanced, full
volumed and very melodious, but its
most noticeable charm is its expressive
ness. It is able to voice the finest shades
of expression. In pianissimo passages, the
voices soften and | blend until a single
voice, strong but indescribably tender,
seems to carry the theme. And even
when revealing.. its fullest strength the
chorus never loses this ability to convey
the message of, the song even while im
pressing with its volume.
One of the most beatutiful number it
sang last night was a Swedish folk song
arranged by Otto Lindblad. Like most
folk songs this is in a minor key. The
harmony is exquisite. The singers per
fectly interpreted the motif of the song.
The Swedish national anthem and
"Hear Us. Svea." contained a very spe
cial appeal for. the majority of- people in
the audience anp gaVoused it to a high de
gree of enthu^iaaa.
Dr. Albert Berg,'the leader, whose un
obtrusive but firm conducting was a de
light to watch, was forced to bow his
appreciation again, .and again.
Herr John Fbrsfell, the only soloist with
the chorus, is a great artist, superbly
gifted vocally. His baritone has the clear
ness and the sweetness of a lyric tenor
together with the dramatic depth and
strength of a deeper voice. He sang the
"Old Psalm," by Grieg, the chorus accom
panying, and the solos in "Sten Sture,"

LIKE TORRENS SYSTEM
County Solon Says It's Too Expensive
to the Taxpayers
Nicholas Pottgieser, county commis
sioner, announced at the meeting of
the committee on claims of the county
board yesterday that he would not
sign the warrants to carry on the Tor
rens system of land titles if he did
not fear that he would be in contempt
'Must look at this," said Pottgieser,
as he tossed over a bill from William
P. Westfall, the attorney, for $200 for
examining titles during June, the
charge being $20 for each examination.
"Westfall has never received less than
$180 a month for such work during the
present year, besides which the county
pays him $50 a month as the attorney
for the register of deeds. This means
that Westfall has received from the
county for the first six months at
least $1,400. and that by the end of the
year he will have secured about $3,000.
Resides this, there are other expenses
connected with the Torrens system
that will bring the cost to the county
for a year to the neighborhood of
At the end of his announcement Mr.
Pottgieser signed the Westfall bill for
$200, reiterating as he did so that the
taxpayers are being mulcted for the
benefit of others, and that the $5,000
a year is really being thrown away.

It is found by Judge Brill that a ma
jority of the stock of the company is
owned by Dyer & Bro. The capital
stock of the company is $50,000, and
plaintiff holds that it has earned $70,
--000 in profits, a" portion of which he
would like to have on the stot^k that
he holds. The demurrer of defendants
was on the ground that the complaint
failed to state a cause of action. The

REMOVED AS GUARDIAN
OF HIS LITTLE SISTER
Ingeborg Anderson Is Now in Custody
of Frank M. Nye
George Anderson was yesterday re
moved as guardian of the person of
Ingeborg Anderson, his eleven-year-old
sister, but allowed to retain his posi

DOC REPEATS BITE
Fox Terrier Attacks 8-Year-Old
Boy Second Time .
Clayton Hamilton, 8-year-old son of F.
T. Hamilton, 1028 Chatsworth street, was
bitten yesterday for the second time in
the same place by the same dog. The
dog, owned by a neighbor, jumped at the
boy and imbedded its teeth in his leg, the
■wound being exactly in the scar left by the
first bite, which was inflicted three months
The boy was placing in the yard in the
rear of his home with a few companions
when the dog, a fox terrier, came among
the children. Seeming to recognize Clay
ton Hamilton, it sniffed, jumped and
snapped, the teeth penetrating the boy's
flesh. The dog then released its grip and
jumped at the boy again. The second
time the boy's wrist was caught between
the dog's jaws, and had the animal not
been beaten off by Mrs. Hamilton, who
ran to the yard on hearing her son's cries,
the artery might have been severed.
"When the dog bit my son the first time,
I did not make a complaint." said Mr.
Hamilton last night. '"That time the boy
was partly to blame, but, this time the
case is different, and I shall insist upon
having the animal destroyed. When the
dog bit my son the first time, about thiee
months ago, he was playing with it among
a number of small boys. Tlie dog then
bit his leg, tearing his trousers and in
flicting a deep wound in the flesh.
"Clayton was not playing with the dog
or paying any attention to it this time,
however. The terrier came into the back
yard when a - number of the neighbors'
children entered through the gate. The
dog immediately ran to my son and caught
his leg between its teeth. The boy shook
off the cur, which jumped again and
canght his wrist."
Mr. Hamilton"*said he would demand
that the dog be shot, and that if the owner
refused to give it up he would swear out a
■warrant in police court.
