afternoon and the first part of our
journey will be over the Wisconsin
The week has been an eventful one.
Besides the usual routine there has
been the work preparatory to breaking
camp to break the monotony. There
has also been some other excitement in
which the Thirteenth and Fourteenth
participated which was not down on
the program but which was none the
le&s enjoyable. For several days a
'sightless swine" had been quartered
in a tent at the end of the car line and
had done a prosperous business. The
crowd which patronized the place had
made themselves obnoxious to ladies
and the complaints were numerous.
Finally the boys decided to take the
law in their own hands aud rid the
grounds of the eyesore and Thursday
night they made a raid. All who
eouldi g$t inside and at a signal the
ropeslpere cut and despite the protests
of the proprietor everything drinkable
The guards had a busy time for the
next half hour trying to detect the
perpitrators and 15 or 20 were lodged
in the guard house. None of Company
were captured and the boys deny be
ing implicated, but the police detail
were busy for some time the next morn
ing burying "dead soldiers."
The nest day the tent went up again
and the boys planned on another raid
when night came. The forces were
-massed promptly on time but the offi
cer 6i the day had received some inti-
matiCn of nvhat wasteoccur and gave
the guard instructions to prevent it.
The boys were held up on the guard
line and while a few sentinels kept the
boys back the remainder of the guard
surrounded the tent aud took every
thing movable to the guard house.
The boys have had their first ex
perience on the picket line. Saturday
a detail of three men was called for
and although they had no uniforms
they made sueh a creditable appear
ance that one of their numberBailey,
of Blue Hill was chosen as an orderly.
Sunday another man was chosen or

man this time being Borgen, of Evans

of the first relief and, although a be

our way. Sunday company comman
ders were ordered to have their men
ready and by 5:30 this morning the
sound of hammers could be heard
everywhere as the quartermasters be
gan the work of boxing the supplies.
At 10 o'clock the cars began to be
switched into our yards but it was not
until after dinner that the supplies
were taken aboard. Our regiment
moves in three sections with twenty
minutes between trains. We are run
ning through Wisconsin now at the
rate of 60 miles an hour and expect to
be in Chicago by 3 o'clock tomorrow
morning. Company B, of Anoka, is in
the second section, so we have friends
close behind. Traveling rations have
been issued consisting of compressed
beef, baked beans, hard bread and two
days' rations of soft bread, which with
coffee will give us quite an acceptable
bill of fare. The hard bread as it is
called is not the hardtack of other
days, filled with magots, etc., but is a
biscuit a little larger than an oyster
cracker, very palatable when fresh.
The vermin may appear later but per
haps by that time the boys will be
hardened enough to relish even that.

Malone was recommended by the jury
to the mercy of the court. The jury

afternoon. It is understood that a
number of the jurymen were impressed

Judge Lochren sentenced Malone to
six months' imprisonment in the
county jail at Princeton and to pay a
fine of $500. The minimum penalty
under the law would have been 60 days'
imprisonment and a fine of $100. The
dire results that are supposed to have
followed the drinking of the extracts
by the Indians has lent interest to this
case and it is supposed influenced the

is no maximum penalty for cases of
this kind. The court may exercise its
discretion it the matter above the

SecondHeld, that chapter 168,
Laws 1895, relating to the taxation of
railroad lands, was duly enacted and
properly submitted at the general elec
tion of 1896 to the electors for adop
tion and ratification as required by the
ThirdThe existence of a public law
whether it be in the form of a statute
or a constitutional amendment, is a
fact of which courts must take judicial
notice. If, as in this case, its validity
depends on the fact, whether it was
ratified by a majority vote of all the
electors voting at the election at which
it was submitted, the court will take
judicial notice of the number of ballots
cast at the election and the number
cast for the law, and inform itself as to
such facts by resorting to the election
returns and records in the office of the
secretary of state or in the offices of
the several county auditors, or by any
other means it deems safe and proper.
FourthHeld, that the law here in
question was adopted and ratified by a
majority of all the electors voting at
the election at which it was submitted.
FifthThe statutes of this State, en
acted subsequently to the adoption of
the constitution, providing for a com

erty of railroad companies by permit
ting them to pay an annual gross earn
ings tax in lieu of the taxation of their
property on the.basis of a cash valua
tion, were unconstitutional until
validated by the constitutional amend
ment of 1871? Art. 1, Sec. 32. Such
validation was a qualified one, the
right to repeal or amend the statutes
being reserved, hence chapter 168,
Laws of 1895, does not impair the
obligation of any contracts, and is con
