Lee of the Cedar and Emerson line turned a trick yesterday that ' opened the eyes of all the passengers on his car. Lee could properly qualify as a star acrobat in any traveling vaudeville: if his act is any sample .of his versatility. The passengers In' his car, as it reached the in tersection of Aldrich and Twentieth avenues, felt i the. sudden reversal of the current and the car came to an abrupt stop. The next instant in rushed Lee through the car and sprang hurriedly from the rear platform. A runaway horse, free from any vehicle. or driver, with harness dragging at the rear, came tearing down the avenue. Lee swung from the car and made accurate connection with the bridle of the dashing horse in the most approved manner. Promptly forthwith Lee hitched the horse at a post near the curb, vaulted into his front'cab and sung out 'all aboard." ■ ~'; There was not a passenger in the car who did not feel that he had seen his mouey'3 worth.

TOO LATB TO CLASSIFY WANTED—TWO FIRST-CLASS JOB PRINT •rs, at Harrison & Smith Co. Steady work. LOWER THE TRACKS The Matter Again Being Agitated ■k? Ift in the Eighth Ward. CLOSE CALL OF A STREET CAR Thirty Paaaeng'era Lately t£»cuued Death or Injury by a Hor- , ; „/.■:.■* ■;.' rifying Margin. , Receutj close calsl of the street cars in avoiding collisions with Hastings & Da kota railroad trains at grade crossings are causing renewed agitation for the lowering of the Twenty-ninth street -tracks in the Eighth ward. - •-• The eighth ward is fast becoming a most thickly populated-section and the danger at the railroad crossings has in creased commensurately on all main trav eled thoroughfares from Henepin 7to Eighth avenue S. It was the fear that a train would run down one of the big Har- I riet cars which finally led the city to com i pel the Milwaukee road to lower its grade at Hennepin boulevard. .- Many a resident of that section who was constantly taking I chances has breathed easier since then. The Nlcollet avenue line traverses a far more crowded section. With cars running oftener . and . generally, accommodating lar ger crowds, the* is far greater daily risk of a grade horror than was the case at Hennepin avenue. The danger is mini mized somewhat by the ordinance com pelling all passenger trains to stop before ( crossing .Xicollet» avenue.>« By some ! strange oversight this ordinance does not j apply to freight trains or switch engines ' which thunder across the city as fast as at Hopkins. • Bad accidents are constantly being narrowly averted. Some day resi dents of the ward. are predicting there will bea mix-up' resulting in the loss of many lives. A Nicollet and Thirty-first street car with thirty people on board just cleared the.tracks in the nick of time a few days I ago. The conductor was willing to ' take chances. When he saw a train approach ing a block away, he signalled the motor man to go ahead, thinking he could clear I the rails and save time. The driver threw on the full current and .would have crossed the "dead line", in good season but for an unlooked-for circumstance. The gateman, seeing the danger of the car, and being a little behind time himself, dropped the bars hoping to keep the car out. Too late to block the way. the bars knocked the trolley from the wire and left the car with barely enough ehadway to cross the track. The driver was "rattled," and made the wrong move. Instead of letting the car go free, he applied the brake and tried to stop before reaching the track. The car had too much of a start and the rear platform had just got out of harm's way, the car being almost at a standstill then, when the freight train rumbled by, missing the car by a foot or two. When the passengers realized their dan ger there was a wild stampede for the door. AM were cadly frightened. Penned in by the gates, there would ■ have been scarcely a chance for them to escape. A man who was on teh car said that the tracks were depreciating property values s<suth of the crossing. He cited several instances where residents had sold out and moved townward to avoid future danger.- C.- G. Goodrich, general manager of the street railway company, said this morning that he was glad to see a renewal of the agitation. Said he: "The Twenty-ninth street tracks must be lowered at every street ear crossing, just as has been done at Hennepin avenue. The change has got to come. Tbe danger is increasing as the city grows larger. The grade must be lowered also at the southeast side crossings. I was on an In terurban car myself the other day, which just escaped being run down by a train. It is time to apply the ounce of preven tion." BLUE LAW ACTION FAILS W. SUPERIOR JL'RY DISAGREED Chief Lutton and Enforcement Of- ticials Given Another Setback —The Defense. Special to The Journal. West Superior, Wis., Jan. 10.—After a twenty-hour session a jury composed prin cipally of business men stated it could not agree whether Baxter Hall, saloonkeeper, should bo convicted of keeping his place open on Sunday. Hall did not dispute the fact that the saloon had been kept open, but his attorney pleaded the excuse that the Sunday saloon law was not meant for rigid enforcement <and that it was not right to enforce it unless the defendant had committed some act that interfered with those who preferred to keep the Sabbath in a different manner. The jury, it is said, stood four to two in favor of Hall, but the two could not be brought around. Chief Lutton had been awaiting the outcome of the case to get an idea of how to carry out the mayor's law enforce ment order. This was the first saloon case in which the matter was laid down in that way and the jury asked to acquit merely for the reason that as a matter of policy it was not right to enforce the law. Last Sunday the saloons were mostly opened, but nothing has been done and probably nothing will be done until the chief can get some convictions. A committee has been appointed by the Trades and Labor Assembly with instruc tions to use all means to prevent the pas sage of the proposed bill reducing the ex emptions now allowed by state law. The present law allows $60 per month exemp tion besides the homestead and $200 worth of property. At the annual meeting of the First Na tional bank, the present officers were re elected and a statement submitted show ing that the bank had paid 4 per cent in dividends and added about $14,000 to its undivided profits in 1900: TEN YEARS AT LAW Foreclosure Case Against the Good rich* Under Advisement. Special to The Journal. Jamestown, N. D., Jan. 10. —Judge Glas pell has taken under advisement the case of Walter C. Stevens vs. Henry and Alice Goodricb of St. Paul. The action is brought to bring about the foreclosure of a mortgage on a section of Stutsman coun ty land. The case has been in court near ly ten years.

Fergus Falls, Minn., Jan. 10.—The village of Vining, this county, is in the midst of a genuine smallpox scare.

THE MINNEAPOLIS JOURNAL. FLOCK TO THE DR.'S A Lot of Sick Men Call on Ames To-day. BUT FEW FOUND CONSOLATION Several G. A. R. Comrades Have Joined the Hank* of the Ant 1.. The crush at the new mayor's office yesterday was fully as great as on any day since he took the oath of office. The may or devoted very little time to the men as they were admitted singly or in- couples whenever Secretary Tom Brown gave the "high sign" to the stalwart colored po liceman—himself- a new appointee—who stood guard at the door. Inside it was generally little more than a handshake, a plain statement of business, and in re turn b. "yes" or "no" or a compromise measure. .'.•■.. While the majority of men in the line were 1 looking for a. place on the force, all having the hungry office-seeker > look, many a sad-faced man, who was .walk ing a beat . a few days ago, was there. Though their dismissal from the depart ment had been officially announced, they apparently yet clung to a hope that they might be reinstated. It was a crumb of comfort to know that men like Robert Wilson, late jailor at the Central station, whose name had been. included among the decapitated, had been placed on the pay roll again. Among this class, was Driver Charles Moore, who has run • with the Central wagon for more than a decade. Mr.-Moore is an ex-soldier. He has always been a faithful officer and neither he nor his friends can understand why the doc tor, who also wears the bronze button, should have turned him down. ■^gMfMB Ex-Patrolman Frank Tapper -was also seeking an audience with the mayor. .-^ Fred Coffin, who was a sergeant of the fifth precinct station, the last times Ames was mayor, was one of the happiest look ing i men around . headquarters. In re membering the "old guard," the mayor had given him a lieutenancy at the South Side station. Coffin has been a seeker after a place on the force every two years regularly since his dismissal. Some Comrade* Grumbling;. ' . Mayor Ames' list. of dismissals and ap pointments in the police department does not appear to have made -much of a hit with the old ■ soldiers, who claim to have received very scant attention. .What they lay up. chiefly against him is the fact that several old soldiers were dismissed. G. A. R. men say that Ames made a particular play for the support of the Grand Army men before election and was loud in his promises of patronage if he were elected. Nothing would be too good for the old soldiers, he told them in speeches deliv ered at different &osts.i|jHHfJ9Hi On the heels of his accession to office he has given several of , his former comrades their walking papers. Among them are ! George Gale, patrolman at the fifth, pre- i cinct, whose record is said to have been j of . the best; Joseph Dennis, who has walked a beat on the northeast side for } several years; Mike Ryan, attached to the j east side station, and William Daly, with i the north side detail. .' H. L. Mason, a former police telephone operator, who had been a hard worker for Ames and had confidently counted on j getting his old place back, was turned j down. ?- Another old soldier released, and later reinstated, is Robert Wilson. He was Jailer at the central station, and in being taken up again is made assistant jani tor at the East Side station. Comrade N. U. Beden, another tireless Ames worker, is very bitter against the administration. He wafited to be side walk inspector and says he received every assurance that he was to be "it." After the election he went to City Attorney Healy and asked him to say a good word for him. Mr. Healy replied that the man who Jield the office was satisfactory to him, and for that reason be did not feel like recommending a change. "If Dr. Ames Bays he'd like to see roe get it, will you stand for my appoint ment?" asked Mr. Beden. Mr. Healy replied that he might give it favorable consideration in that event, rather than oppose the mayor's wishes. Mr. Beden then went to the mayor, told him of his conversation with the city at torney and asked for his blessing. "I'm very sorry, old man," replied the doctor, "but I've already filled the place." Beden was furious. He told the mayor he didn't care so much for the place after all, and had simply asked for it as a test of friendship. HAGMAN DROPS IX Canvasses the Workhouse Situation With the Mayor. Retiring Superintendent John Hagman of the workhouse had a confidential chat with Mayor Ames this morning in re sponse to an invitation. The mayor was interested in knowing what conditions now obtained at that institution, ans so licited the superintendent's advice as to any necessary changes. The mayor was particularly anxious to know whether it would be well to diminish or increase the staff. He also thought it might be well to make a number of changes, several prospective successors to present incum bents being at that time in waiting in the anteroom. The superintendent gave the mayor such information as he had at hand, but asked that no anticipated appointments be made to take effect immediately. He said that he could not consistently discharge a single man now employed at the workhouse, as all were doing their duty well. He sug gested that nothing be done until the next meeting of the board of charities and cor rections, Monday. The mayor is a mem ber ex-officio of the board and the custom has always been to let him have his way about workhouse appointments. To this the mayor agreed, but only after the sup erintendent had said that he would recog nize no appointments until they had been confirmed by the board. I So Changes by Port.' City Assessor . Fort said yesterday that there would be no Important changes in his department: Whatever was to be done in that regard would be announced within a few days. ■ ■ : . - ; f3,500 FOR LOSS OP WIFE X. P.

BEBB SHE IS VINDICATED Miss Lina Christiansen Wins an Important Insurance Case. THE ARBITRATORS ARE RAPPED The Court Hold* That They Were Biased and Vacates Their Award. Judge Pond has vacated 'the award of the arbitrators in the dispute between Miss Lina 4 Christiansen and the insurance companies regarding the loss on her dress making establishment last winter. More over, the Norwich Union Fire Insurance society of England is held "by its action and conduct to have waived its right to resubmit the matter to referees. Miss Christiansen .is given judgment against the company for |3,000. with interest and costs. There are nine similar cases against other companies and the total insurance involved was $22,500, two of the compa nies paying their share without arbitra tion. The case is one of the most notable of the year not only from the high standing of the attorneys engaged, but from the length of the trial. Miss Christianson was represented by Henry F. Gjertsen, M. H. Bou'elle and Judge Robert Jamison, and the insurance company by F. V. Bi%/n and Judge Lancester. The jury, alter being kept in its pen for a fortnight, was dismissed by the consent of both sides because so many purely legal questions had been introduced that the jurymen did not know whether they were supposed to be plain men of business or a dozen lord chief justices. In his voluminous decision, Judge Pond follows the course of the arbitration. In the conclusions of fact he determines that I the reasonable value of the goods wa» j $29,348, and that the total insurance was $26,500. The loss is placed at $26,798.48. It is determined by the evidence that the referees informally announced to the legal representative of the plaintifl that the val jue of her stock of dress materials was $29,348 and after that time no evidence either oral or written was taken while the board was in session. When the board met to prepare the formal award, H. A. Titcomb withdrew, saying that he would not be a party to such a proceeding. Then the other two, W. W. Thomas and William Alden, worked alone and submitted an award fix ing the value of the stock before the fire at $17,093 and appraising the loss at $14, --302. The award was rejected by Misa ter be resubmitted, which demand was not Christiansen, who demanded that the mat granted. The court finds that Referees Thomas and Alden were guilty of misconduct in that they were not fair and impartial but were biased against the plaintiff. Other irregular proceedings are mentioned, such as consulting certain persons privately. A stay of thirty days has been granted and there will doubtless be a motion for a new trial or some similar action. The othelr tine eases are set for trial next Tuesday, but it is not known what other disposition will be made of them at that time. LIEnfTMSONTIONEY SOT INCLUDED IN INVENTORY "Twas Banked tnder Another Name Because Wealth Endangered a Policeman* Position. A coup was sprung this morning in the Nelson will contest by the will breakers. j When Sam Williamson, the nephew to j whom was bequeathed the whole property, ; was on the stand, he was led to admit that : there was $10,000 in the Farmers and Mer i chants 1 bank which had belonged to Tom i Nelson. It was in the name of S. V. Bak- I ke, which was the name Sam Williamson j bore in. Norway. The witness had not I deemed it necessary to include this sum of | money in the inventory of the estate of j his deceased uncJe. Several of Nelson's friends claim to have , known of the money in the banks and ' their explanation of the fact that it was deposited in the name of Bakke is that it was done to conceal the fact that Nelson had any considerable sum of money. ! Cases had come to his attention in which i men had been removed from the police ! force because they had some property and I their place was needed for a poor man with a family and the Jieutenant was anxi ous to stay on. Dr. E. S. Kelley, formerly police sur geon and health commissioner, gave some valuable testimony. He had found Mr. Nelson mentally disturbed, at times de lirious and irresponsible and had there fore suggested that his revolver be taken away. The patient was much excited over the Ames campaign, so much so that Dr. Kelley advised Williamson to take him out of town, which was done. Dr. Kelley i also visited his patient at'Asbury hospital. I He saw him on the day before the will was signed and found him in a semi comatose condition. It was his opinion I that Nelson never fully recovered his rea | son after he fell from his chair in the I restaurant until his death. SUIT FOR AN ACCOUNTING HOLY TERROR CO. IS DEFENDANT McCarty Bring* Another Action, for an Interest in All the Im provements. Special to The Journal. Rapid City, S. D., Jan. 10.—The McCarty case against the Holy Terror Mining com pany of Keystone is being tried in this city this week. McCarty was one of three men who originally located the Holy Ter ror claim. The ground was allowed to go back to the government, but was subse quently relocated by MoCarty's partners, leaving him out. McCarty brought suit for an interest and won in the higher courts, the court holding that a partner cannot be located out of a Claim. He has now brought another suit against the com pany for an accounting. He claims that nis interest in the company also takes m the improvements in the way of buildings, mills, hoisting plants and in the Keystone mine and appurtenances, which, he claims, were all acquired with money taken from the mine. The company is willing to give McCarty his one-eighth interest in Holy Terror claim No. 2, but will fight the case for an accounting. The company will show that most of the ore mined in the past four years has come from other ground than claim No. 2; that the mine has not paid dividends for some time and that if Mc- Carty's claims are paid the mine will either have to close down entirely or else assess the stockholders for enough to make certain improvements, in order that oper ations may be continued. The company, it is said, offered at one time to pay M.c- Carty $20,000 for his interest, which he refused to accept. The case has been of interest all over the Black Hills. The Holy Terror mine has been a great dividend payer, having paid over one-third of its capitalization in a little over four years' time. Th© mine is to Keystone what the Homestake Is to Lead. It is stated that the management of the company has declared that if Mc- Carty wins the mine will be closed. Debtors Will Have to Wait. Special to" The Journal.

VESSELS FOR HIS LAKE LINE Wall Street Concedes the Hill-Mor gan interentM Control of the St. Paul. Special to The Journal. New York, Jan. 10.—James J. Hill seems to have attained the zenith of Wall street fame. Ever since his arrival Tuesday reporters attended him every step. Every move he makes is recorded. No other railroad financier is accorded so much at tention. His long • conferences with J. Pierpont Morgan and Daniel Lamont, vice presi dent of the Northern Pacific, are causing much conjecture. His long talk with La mont is regarded as implying united ac tion dealing with problems connected with the recently acquired control of the Chi cago, Milwaukee & St. Paul railroad. The best authorities concede the Hill- Morgan interests full control of that rail road, despite denials, which may lie tex tually true. It is deemed certain that Hill will suc ceed Armour on the St. Paul board. Hill has been conferring with John S. Ken nedy, his old-time financial associate. Nothing is divulged concerning the Northern Pacific directors' meeting ex cept that the payment of the usual pre ferred stock dividends was ordered. New York, J&n. 10.—President J. J. Hill of the Great Xorthern, who arrived from the west Tuesday for the purpose, it was said, of effecting several important railroad combinations, was at his New York office early to-day. He met a num ber of railroad men and New York finan ciers, including E. H. Harriman and Jacob Schiff. From his office Mr. Hill went to the Chase National bank, of which he is a director, to attend a board meeting of the directors and later he was iv confer ence with more railroad men. Mr. Hill said to a reporter that the ob ject of his visit was to "clean uc some small matters." , He had one special purpose, he said, consulting ship-builders in regard to ves sels for his lake lines.

Milwaukee, Jan. 10. —The Evening Wis consin says it is prepared to state on the very best of authority that the big railway deal involving the Chicago, Mil waukee and St. Paul system, the Great Northern and Northern Pacific, has gone through. It is not a lease outright of the Mil waukee property, but an agreement among the principal owners of the properties by which certain terms, as to earnings, etc., are to be carefully carried out and strict ly adhered to, and the combination of roads will really form a gigantic pool a's to business and earnings, giving to each other all the business, east and west bound, that they can control. THEY'LL BE JELCOMED Temperance and Mission Workers Not Barred From Lockups. Chief of Police Fred Ames yesterday denied a recently published statement that members of the W. C. T. U. or of any other church temperance societies would receive but scant welcome at police head quarters or the different police stations during this administration. There was ab solutely no authority, he said, for the as sertion that the last temperance and prayer meeting with song service which the Central station would witness in at least two years to come, had been held last Sunday evening. Said he: The tact that the Christian women of this city who are interested in temperance work had requested that some one be appointed matron at the Central station who had their interests at heart and would co-operate with them in their work, was one thing which in fluenced the mayor in the appointment of Mrs. Schaeffer. I wish it understood that temperance workers who have been in the habit of holding services in the station In the past 'will be as free to come and go there while I am in office. I wish to rid the publlo of any notion that this department or ad ministration is in any sense antagonistic to such good work. I know that the mayor feels the same way about it, and Mrs. Schaef fer will gladly render temperance workers any assistance within her power. I believe they are in a position to do a great deal of THURSDAY EVENING. tfANUABY 10. 1901. A NEW MINNESOTA TOWN 'TWILL.

West Superior, Wis., Jan. 10.— U. O. B. Wingate of the state board of health has been in the city to confer with the health authorities and with members of the Min nesota board relative to the smallpox question. The fact that the lumber camps of northern Wisconsin, Minnesota and Michigan seem to be filled with cases has been brought to the attention of the state board. Mr. Wingate's idea is to have the various county authorities adopt the same course of general treatment, establishing quarantines where necessary and vac cinating the men in the camps. If the dif ferent counties take the matter up it is believed the dissemination of germs can be stopped to a great extent. PINGREE CASE GOES OVEB Hl» Contempt Case Will Be Argued Next Saturday.

NOVELS A MODE! OF THINKING The Importance of Fiction us a Wholcaome and Educational In fluence. Although the people read fiction, it is not always fiction of the best class; there is little sympathetic study of the best works of the best authors; and scanty knowledge of the great classics of fiction which are among life's text books. What is needed is an awakening to the percep tion of the great educational value of literature and of classical fiction in par ticular. For a large part of the thinking of our greater minds in all»countries, and in all centuries is done through this form of literature. If we vow total abstinence, we are excommunicated from contact with these minds; if we read indiscriminately and universally, our taste loses its fineness and we are almost as totally banished from this inspiring contact. Everywhere our greatest teachers and those who have become their apostles, are struggling heart and mind, voice and strength and influence, to inspire not only students in lesser schools and universities, but the rank and file of every-day busy people whose reading is their recreation, to read thinkingly and under interpreta tion of those whose life and thought ha» been given to the subject. Perhaps the greatest of these Interpret ers, and certainly a man whose greatest desire is to bring to the busy man all the wonderful wealth of beautiful and health ful thinking he has found, is Dr. Richard G. Moulton of the University of Chicago, formerly of the University of Cambridge. England. A pioneer in the extension of university teaching to the people of Eng land outside of university life, he came to our country and is here devoting all his energies to his chosen work. He has given ten courses in Minneapolia and begins the eleventh one at the Uni tarian church, Friday evening, January 18. It has for some time been, the desire of the local center here to have him give the course on "Novels a Mode of Think ing." In accordance with this desire. Miss Evers has decided upon the follow ing course: Jan. 18, Marlowe's Dr. Faustus, 'Think ing About the Loss of a Soul." Feb. 1, Shakspere's Henry V., "Think ing About Heroism of Soul." Feb. 16, the Ballad of Sir Caulins, "Thinking About Liove." March 1, Southey's Curse of Kehama, "Thinking About Destiny." March 15, Sue's "Wandering Jew," "Thinking About Providence." March 29, conclusion, "The Dignity of Fiction." Got. l.ind'a Kiitht Arm. Ex-Governor Lind's left arm was lost, not in war, as so many people suppose, but through having it injured in a piece of farm machinery. The other arm is the one, however, which has recently brought the governor into notoriety. His friends say he was exasperated by an attack upon his patriotism. No doubt it is a matter of nerves. The governor should have steadied his nerves by drinking "Golden Grain Belt" beer regularly at his meals. You can do likewise —telephone The Brew ery, main 486.
