COUNCIL MIGHT CUT
OUT PHONE TOLLS
Company Gives Free Tolls From
Midway to Minneapolis as
It is evident from the attitude of the
Twin City Telephone company relative
to the charge for service between St.
Paul and, Minneapolis that the only
chance of bringing about the improved
condition is through the city council.
There is a joint committee of the
city council now investigating the un
authorized use of conduits by telephone
and other companies, and if it is proven
that either the Twin City or the North
western Telephone company is guilty of
the charge, the city will possibly be in
a position to make the terms of settle
At present the Twin City company
gives service to certain of its subscrib
ers in the Midway district to Minneap
olis free of charge. Only those who
have connections with the Merriam
Park station are entitled to such serv
ice. Patrons of the company on one
side of the street connected with the
Merriam Park station can talk with
Minneapolis without extra charge,
while those across the way connected
with the Dale or other stations would
be compelled to pay 10 cents.
It has been argued by a majority of
the members of the city council and
by practically all of the citizens who
have been interviewed on the sub
ject, that telephone toll charges be
tween Minneapolis and St. Paul should
be abolished. It is contended that the
companies would make more money if
such was done. There was a prac
tically unanimous agreement that the
Twin City company is treating a ma
jority of its customers in an unfair
manner by giving the Midway sub
scribers the preference.
Barry Says it's a Business Deal
R. L. Barry, local -manager for the
Twin City company, takes the position
that there is little or nothing to dis
cuss relating to the proposed abolishing
of the charge for service to Minneap
olis, and tfcat the giving of free tolls
frbm*' MW\vay is a business proposi
"When the company was established
it was found that most of the Midway
district was an equal distance from the
business centers of St. Paul and Minne
apolis," said Mr. Barry, "and it was ul
timately concluded that it would be
just as cheap to give service to Minne
apolis as to St. PauU It was a busi
ness matter with the company and not
with any desire to discriminate against
other sections of the city. Doubtless
the action was taken because of the
peculiar location of the Midway terri
tory,' in- wftich a large number of Min
neapolis business men reside. In all
particulars the company is obeying the
provisions of the franchise granted it
By the city, and personally I cannot
see the objection to giving the Midway
citizens, or any other, free service to
Mr. Barry was willing to discuss the
matter thus far, but contended that he
is not in a position to make statements
for the company as to its future pol
icy. In fact, he did not desire to be
quoted at all, preferring to allow of
ficers of "the company to discuss the
question if it should come before the
Freedy Won't Discuss Rates
B. L. Freedy, general superintendent
of the Northwestern Telephone com
pany, takes the position that he can
not discuss the question of rates in de
tail, and says that this question is one
that belongs to the officers of the com
pany and not to the employes.
"There is nothing that I could say
worth while." said Mr. Freedy. "Never
having" been asked to make a report as
to the. possibility of our lines earning
more with the toll abolished, and there
fore not having investigated the sub
ject, I am unable to express an opin
"Do you think there is any chance of
securing an abolition of the tolls?" he
"I do not," was the answer.
Mr. Freedy said that, while he is not
acquainted with -all the questions dis
cussed by the directors of the com
pany, he has never heard of them con
sidering the possibility of giving free
service to Minneapolis. If such had
been the case he might and might not
have^ been notified.

READY TO MOVE OUT
Justus, Metzdorf and Irvine
Prepare to Surrender Keys
Early next week there will be three
new officials in the county court house,
these being Anton Miesen, sheriff;
Jesse Foot, county treasurer, and J. H.
Armstrong, county surveyor.
P. C. Justus retires as sheriff, after
having served four years; P. J. Metz
dorf ceases to be county treasurer, aft
er having served the same length of
time, and J. B. Irvine will no longer be
surveyor after two terms in office.
But few of the outgoing officials and
clerks are ready to announce their
prospective course in the future. Sher
iff Justus will assume active charge of
his hardware business, which he has
continued to conduct while in office,
and a number of men in his service ex
pect to secure employment at the trades
they formerly followed. Treasurer
Metzdorf has several proposals under
consideration, but is not ready to an
nounce his intentions.
Prepare to Turn Over Records
In the offices where changes will oc
cur the men now holding the positions
have begun preparations to be able to
turn over their offices to their succes
sors in good condition. Records will
be brought up to date and closed Sat
urday night, Dec. 31, and on Sunday,
Jan. 1, the new officials can assume
their positions if they see fit and have
taken the oaths of office.
By Monday, Jan. 2, it is expected that
all the new men will be in charge, sur
rounded by the subordinates they have
selected. Except for the sheriff there
will be nothing to do on Tuesday. If
Mr. Miesen takes charge at that time
he will at once become responsible for
the prisoners in the county jail, and
Justus' responsibility will be at an end.
Justus will move from the residence
section of the jail and Miesen will take
Prisoners at the county jail who will
be compelled to remain there for some
time are most vitally interested in the
changes to be made in jailers. They
are acquainted with the men who are
now in charge and are anxiously await
ing possible changes in rules of con
duct and as to visitors.
The transfer of the office of county
treasurer will be a formal affair. In
this position the outgoing treasurer not
only surrenders to his successor all the
books, safes and paraphernalia of the
office, but the successor must see that
the records are in proper condition and
that the bank balances are correctly
stated. Treasurer "-Metzdorf says that
the records of the office are such that
he can turn it over to Mr. Foot at a
moment's notice, and that the ceremony
of transfer will be short.

he signs letters, has for the past few
days been receiving visits from rela

The prisoner's father called Sunday,
and other relatives saw him yesterday,
and in the- presence of the visitors the
prisoner exhibited a positive hopeful
ness of the outcome. His only com
plaint was that it is necessary for him
to wait until April to be indicted. He
referred particularly to the adoption of
the constitutional amendment permit
ting the abolition of grand juries, and
suggested that such a law should be
the first one enacted by the legislature.
"If it was not necessary for me to
remain here waiting for the action of
the grand jury, I would be free long
before that body acts," said Kalderwit.
'The finding of a true bill by the grand'
jury is a mere matter of form, and so
far as I am concerned would be gladly
waived. Up to the present time I have
not secured an attorney. In view of
the absence of testimony involving me
in the crime. I do not feel assured that
it is necessary to have legal advice.
Personally, I have not the money with
which to pay a lawyer, and am not in
clined to impose upon my relatives."
SAYS WIFE POURED ICE
WATER ON HIS HEAD
Frank R. Delavan, of Minneapolis,
Brings Action for Divorce
That she poured ice water on his
head as a welcome home is one of the
charges advanced by Frank R. Delavan
against Elizabeth Delavan in a suit
for divorce that he has begun in Hen
nepin county. The papers have been
brought to St. Paul in order to secure
service upon the defendant.
This arctic variation of the old-fash
ioned rule for receiving a husband at
his own fireside is said to have been
demonstrated in a fashionable flat
building at Minneapolis. Charges are
added that the wife made "scenes" on
the street while engaged in altercations
with the husband.
Mr. Delavan is forty-two years old
and his wife is eight years younger.
They were married at St. Paul seven
years ago. They have one child, a son.

RESTS BEHIND BARS
Man Wanted for Stabbing John
Johnson Surrenders to
Albert Moeller, 983 Jenks street, who
stabbed John Johnson, 985 Jenks street,
during a fight at Arcade and Case
streets early Sunday morning, gave
himself up to the police at the central
station yesterday and said he was
willing to face the charges against
"I couldn't stand the thought of hav
ing the police looking for me, and I
was afraid of being caught every min
ute," said Moeller. "When I ran away
from home Sunday I wandered about
all day, fearing to go anywhere to get
anything to eat. It wras a sorry
Christmas day for me.
Decides to Surrender
"Tired and weary, I went to the
home of my cousin, on Jenks street,
late at night. I was told there that
Johnson was dead, so I decided to give
myself up in the morning. The fight was
caused by a dispute betw reen John and
his brother Fred. We had been drink
ing in several saloons, but the quarrel
did not begin until about 8 o'clock, in
"When we went out on the street the
brothers came to blows and I tried to
separate them. John then jumped on
me, and he had a knife. I pulled out
my knife and fought as best I could. I
received a cut on the hand in the tus
"I saw he was cut pretty badly and
thought that I had better get away.
I left him with h4s brother and ran to
my home and told my cousin and
Johnson's parents that I had stabbed
him. Then I ran away and wandered
about all day.
Friends for Five Years
"John Johnson and I have been
friends for over five years and 1
would not have thought of hurting him
if we had not been drinking. I am
glad that he is not dead, and hope that
he will recover."
Johnson remained in a critical con
dition at the city hospital yesterday.
He was extremely weak from loss of
blood, a*d some of his wounds are
such that infection is feared. The
physicians said that if no complica
tions set in he will live.
SANTA AT EMPORIUM
Big Store Gladdens Hearts of
Many Little Ones
Although Santa Claus was through
with his work Christmas morning, he
was persuaded to remain in St. Paul
until yesterday morning by the pro
prietors of the Emporium store, who
agreed to straighten matters with the
old man's wife. Hundreds of children
were invited to meet the saint at the
store yesterday morning, and from the
looks of the street and sidewalks, which
were fairly blockaded, none of a
young people turned down the invita
Although the reception was billed to
start at 10 o'clock, there was a solid
mass of young humanity around the
store by 9, and Lieut. Meyerding and
his squad of bluecoats were kept busy
keeping the children fairly quiet. The
policemen, inspired with the Christmas
spirit, were bubbling over with good
nature, and for once the small boy
forgot his grudge against "de cop." A
great shout went up when the doors
were finally thro.wn open, and for a few
minutes a stampede was threatened.
But Lieut. Meyerding hit upon a happy
plan and the children were ushered into
the presence of Santa in relays. The
good saint, assisted by the proprietors
of the store and the entire staff of
clerks, had his hands full, but he was
never too busy to overlook the smallest
None of the small visitors were hur
ried in the least, and after receiving
their presents, consisting of underwear,
caps, mittens, shoes, toys and candy,
were allowed to gaze to their fill at the
many pretty things about the store.
Humane Agent Moak and Relief Agent
Hutchins were also on hand and ren
dered valuable assistance.
"Gee," remarked a small newsboy
emerging from the rear door of the
store with a huge pocket knife and a
glittering pair of skates. "I guess dats
poor doings. Santa is de boy dat you
can bank on all de time, 'cause he never
forgets to do de right ting by us kids."

When the last child had departed the
proprietors of the store, Angus Mc-
Leod, J. T. Kennedy and P. McArthur,
and their large clerking force, were
completely exhausted, but happy that,

ST. PAUL ENJOYS
Snow Covers the Streets With
Mantle of White and Good
Christmas No. 2, enabling all the
town to recover from the dinners and
delights of the regular ansutyersary,
was obseryed yesterday, in accordance
with -the simple life. Everybody did
nothing and enjoyed it. Only a small
and unwise minority continued the
heavy task of celebration.
A snowstorm, a welcome, Kris Krin
gle snowstorm that whitened all the
streets and yards and squares and
parks, supplied for the second holiday
a sentimental deficit lamented on the
first. Bringing no disagreeable
change in temperature, the snow
proved notably instructive to small
folk, who had not yet received then
presents. That Santa Claus had been
delayed because the sleighing was so
bad Sunday became clear to every
thoughtful child. What doubt might
linger was removed by the arrival of
the mail carrier yesterday morning, it
being well understood that the carrier
was doing Santa Claus - a favor by
bringing presents in from his big
sleigh down at the street corner.
Mail Carriers Busy
Mail carriers, indeed, were the most
industrious people in St. Paul yester
day morning. Trip after trip was
made by the carriers between the post
offices and the residence districts in
order to deliver some tons of mail anil
merchandise that had arrived since
Although business houses and offices
were closed, with scarcely an excep
tion, some public offices were kept
open to assert the legal fact that yes
terday was not a dies non.
Thus the office of Clerk of the Court
Rogers swung wide its doors. There
Court Commisisoner Gallick, clothed
as is his due, with all the authority of
the six judges of the district court and
with more than all their dignity, sat,
law book in hand, upon the woolsack,
waiting for big corporations or impa
tient lovers. The commissioner did
not know whether any move would be
made yesterday in the street railway
case. He had hoped, however, that
some motion would be made, for he
was prepared to give a prompt deci
No Litigants or Lovers
Next to a problem in corporation law
the commissioner was looking for
brides ' and grooms. Yet, hoping
against hope, he sat in chambers
throughout the weary day and never
was rewarded by litigant or lover.
Once a man entered and after him a
lady fair and blonde. The commis
sioner arose. He requested hurriedly
that "the parties" be "brought before
him." But the license that the stran
gers sought was only a permission to
visit the county jail.
When the clerk's office closed, at 4
p. m., two satisfactions of judgment
had been filed, marking the passing of
a legal day. Even less business was
transacted in the other county offices.
The city offices, like the federal and
the state offices, were practically
The last extensive distribution of
gifts took place at the Emporium de
partment store between 10 o'clock yes
terday morning and 1 o'clock.
Skating was again the Christmas
sport yesterday, in the absence of suf
ficient snow for sleighing. The city
rinks were once more crowded, and
even a larger, noisier multitude travel
ed forth to Como park and lake. The
four acres of ice that had been clear
ed yesterday morning of the snow de
posited Sunday night resounded yes

ample merriment to close a double
COLD WAVE DELAYED

The cold wave predicted by the
weather man for Christmas did not
make its appearance, but is still on the
way, and ought to strike St. Paul to
day. When last heard of the wave was
at Medicine Hat and headed southeast.
The weather was mild early last night
with a slight snow falling steadily and
the streets were soon covered. Many
people took advantage of the first real
snow storm of the year, and the hills
were covered with coasters until late
in the evening.
'"The cold wave, although slow, is
surely coming," said Weather Observer
Oliver last night, "and the temperature
will be forced down to the zero mark.
Reports from Medicine Hat state that
