Daly Has a Bill to Make Elevator
Men Pay It.
UoGonau Introduces a Bridge Bill
—Ualvorson Bill
Much difficulty has been experienced
by city and other local assessors in list-
Ing grain in public warehouses for taxa
tion on account of the uncertainty of own
ership. Ownership is shown by ware
house receipts or certificates which change
hands sometimes several times a day.
This fact, with the disinclination of ele
vator officials to furnish information to
assessors, has permitted much grain to
escape taxation. Senator Daly of Per
ham has drafted a bill which provides that
all grain in elevators aitd warehouses Is
to be assessed against the owners of the
buildings. Statements as to their con
tents must be furnished to the proper
officials on the first of each May. The law
further provides that the owners of ele
vators and warehouses are to have a lien
on the grain against the actual owner
thereof. Persons making false statements
regarding the contents of elevators may
be prosecuted for perjury.
The law, if enected, would greatly
simplify the work of assessors in such
cities as Minneapolis and Duluth. It is
expected that considerable litigation will
result, and active opposition from grain
men generally is anticipated.
Put In a Bridge Bill.
A« an enthusiastic supporter of the pro
ject for a bridge across the Mississippi in
Minneapolis from Thirty-second avenue N.
to Twenty-fifth avenue NE. Senator Mc-
Gowan has introduced a bill authorizing
city councils to Issue certificates of in
debtedness to raise funds with which to
construct widen and repair bridges.
While Mr. McGowan has the northside
bridge in mind, his bill will permit the
widening of the Washington avenue
bridge, the replacing of the Tenth avenue
bridge or the construction of a new one at
Cedar avenue.
The certificates of indebtedness must b©
cancelled within ten years and may not
draw over 4 per cent interest. The matter
was referred to the Hennepin delegation.
Halt orsou Bill Changed.
Senator Halvorson found that his radical
anti-cigarette bill was too far-reaching,
promising to run afow] of interstate com
merce regulations and has been obliged to
amend it in one essential particular. It
•eerng to be outside the power of the state
to prohibit anyone from bringing cigar
ettes into the state. He has, therefore, pre
pared a new bill which simply prohibits
the sale or giving away of the "coffin
mails" within the state.
Urges Grout Bill.
Grout's famous oleomargarine bill, -which
has passed the lower house of congress,
was given brief attention by the senate.
Senator Potter introduced the house reso
lution calling upon the Minnesota repre
sentatives in congress to use their efforts
to secure the passage of this measure.

Chilton Bill Requires a Physician's
The Purpose Is to Prevent, the Per
petuation of Mental Dis- *
Society must be physically regenerated,
in the opinion of Dr. B. O. Chilton of How
ard Lake, and being a state senator in ac
tive service he proposes to work a regen
eration by legislation. Only people of
fcound mind with a good pedigree as to
mental soundness are to be eligible to as
sume the responsibilities of marriage, ac
cording to a bill introduced to prohibit
persons who are epileptic, feeble minded,
imbeciles or chronically insane from mar
rying. The penalty is a fine not to exceed
$1,000 or imprisonment not to exceed five
All candidates for marriage must pre
sent themselves before a licensed physi
cian, who is to make such examination as
may be necessary and issue a certificate
which must accompany the application for
a marriage license. No license may be
issued unless the requisite certificate of
sound mind is produced and no clergyman
or magistrate may perform the marriage
ceremony unless the license is regular.
For violations of this part of the law a
fine ofr $1,000 with the alternative of not
more than thpee years* Imprisonment may
be imposed.
Dr. Chilton says his bill is not nearly
so radical as the proposed Wisconsin and
Colorado measures. In fact, while ad
mitting that his proposition is an innova
tion. Dr. Chilton thinks it is a very con
servative measure. To prohibit the inter
marriage of persons of unsound or weak
minds is to protect the community and
the result will tend eventually to reduce
greatly the rapidly increasing population
in the many insane hospitals and similar
institutions, he says. The plan proposed
by Dr. Chilton Js recommended by Super
intendent A. C. Rogers of tbe state school
lor feeble minded at Faribault, who has
made a life long study of the aubject.
Opposed to Book Typewriters.
Book typewriters do not find favor in
the eyes of Senator Jepson of Minneap
olis. He has introduced a bill to pro
hibit the recording of any instrument
affecting the title of real estate by type

A short session of the -senate commit

Underleak's Bill.
Considerable attention was given yesterday
afternoon to Senator Underleak's bill provid
ing for the appointment of a commision to re
vise the tax laws of the state by the senate
committee on taxes and tax laws. Auditor
Dunn spent about an hour with the com
mittee pointing out its most serious defects.
There are divergent views in the committee

referred to a subcommittee consisting of
Senators Underleak, Somerville and Greer
to be redrafted.

House Judiciary • Committee Hears
Arguments on Both Sides.
The r house judiciary committee held a
long.session to-day over the Hickey bill,
retiring all appeals from " municipal
courts ; to be made to the' district court.
A committee of the Ramsey County Bar
association was heard in favor of the bill,
and Justices Colilns, Brown and Lovely of
the supreme court favored the bill. \ They
said it would result; in lightening the
work of the supreme court. A. .E. Allen,
and L. A. Lydiard of Minneapolis were
on hand to oppose the bill. There is a
movement in Ramsey county to abolish
the municipal court, said to be the result
of I the antagonism of ( the * Reese-Warner-
Schiffman ring to Judge Hine. They pro
pose, adding two judges to the district
court. Such a bill would meet with
unanimous opposition from Minneapolis.
Xew Urainnfie Bill.
The drainage committees of the two houses
held a joint session to-day, and as a result
a committee bill will be introduced in both
houses to-morrow caling for an aproprlation
of $50,000 yearly for two years. The use of
the funds is to be directed by a board con
sisting of the governor, the state auditor and
secretary of state. A similar bill at thel last
session failed of passage.

Speaker Dowling's Reapportionment
Committee to Be All Rep'n.
The Danger of Delay in Reappor
tionment Is Clearly Pointed
There was no appointment of the house
members of the joint reapportionment
committee this morning because of delay
on the part of the senate in notifying the
lower body of the selection of the seven
senate members. Mr. Dowling's commit
tee is practically made up. but will not
be given out until to-morrow. He, him
self, is strongly in favor of a congressional
reapportionment, and says without hesi
tation that a great mistake will be made
if nine districts are not determined upon
at this session.
Mr. Dowling's contention is that if the
present session neglects congressional re
apportionment and if it should happen at
any time within the next decade that the
minority should gain control of both
houses, it will be possible for such minor
ity to erect nine congressional districts
that under the law would stand without
alteration or modification until after the
census of 1910.
In a brief interview this morning, Mr.
Dowling put himself on record as not only
favoring the addition of two districts, but
as intending to promote that plan by all
legitimate means in his 'power. It may be
gathered from his remarks that no demo
crat will be named on the house committee
of seventeen members. Said the speaker:
I am for the definition of nine republican
districts, "compact and contiguous," as pro
vided for by act of congress; I am not dis
posed to assist any congressional aspirant
who seeks to carve out a district in which he
will be sure of election, and -who has no re
gard for any other consideration. It Is im
portant that so far as possible the present
seven districts remain undisturbed. There
are various reasons to'recommend this de
termination, but chiefest of all is that of
political expediency. The men who have
worked together in the.past will understand
how to harmonize future differences, and the
result will be a more efficient administration
of party affairs, through the medium of the
state central committee, and more certain
and more satisfactory results in elections,
than. If any other plan is followed. The aim
of the reapportio-nment committee in this par
ticular should be to perpetuate so far as is
practicable the organization already existing
in the variou* congressional districts.
Laybonrn Bill "Will Give Them .3O
Frinds of the normal schools are seek
ing the same recognition for normal
schools that the university enjoys—an an
nual tax levy. Under the present law 1
mill is set apart each year for the gen
eral school fund and 23-100 of a mill for
'the university. The normal schools now
established, it is estimated, could be very
handily supported by annual appropriation
upon a basis of 30-100 of a mill for their
exclusive use.
Mr. Layboum of Duluth has, therefore,
introduced a bill creating a state normal
BChool fund for the support and main
tenance of normal schools. Mr. Laybourn
said that those who represent normal
school interests are obliged to engage In
a hand-to-hand struggle, almost, to secure
an allowance in the general appropriation
bill for maintenance and necessary re
pairs. The appropriations committee does
not always have unlimited sums at its
command. Under the departure pro
posed in the Layboum bill the legislature
need be appealed to only when new build
ings are desired.
The amount available for normal school
fund under a thirty one-hundredths of a
mill levy would approximate $175,000, an
average of $35,000 for each of the five state
normal schools. The omnibus bill of last
session carried a grand total of 5133,000 for
the maintenance of four of the normal
schools, the work upon the building at
Duluth not. havrhg progressed to a point
where the stricture was ready for occu
pancy. There.will be pupils in attendance
before the next: session, however, and it
will be incumbent upofi this legislature to
appropriate money for running expenses
if there is no provision made by way of
tax levy.
The Laybourn bill repeals a number of
special laws passed from time to time in
the interest of indiyidual Institutions.
Increases Exemption.
Under a bill introduced by Mr. Schur
man, the exemption under the personal
property tax was increased from $100 to
$300. A bill bearing the name of Mr. Rob
erts incorporates a provision that when
authorized the president and chief en
gineer of a railway corporation may desig
nate changes in the designated route of the
road. The present law requires action by
the board of directors, and it is often ex
tremely inconvenient to obtain attendance
at meetings.
Bills Pasaed.
Upon the calendar two bills were passed
as follows:
H. F. 7—To amend section 5141, statutes
of 1884, relating to the limitation of the time !
within which action may be commenced for
the foreclosure of mortgages.
H. F. 18 —To amend chapter 46, general laws
of 1889, entitled an act to establish a probate
On general orders the following bills
were recommended to pass:
S. F. 13—Relating to the duties of the re
porter of the supreme court. Wilson.
Omitted Taxes.
Under the present tax law it not in
frequently happens that taxes are omitted
in assessment and that an innocent pur
thaser suddenly finds himself confronted
by a heavy total of unpaid charges. Mr.
Deming introduced a bill to-day for the
relief of a purchaser under such circum
stances. It provides for the nullification
of any taxes which may have been
omitted in assessments up to the time
the last transfer of property took place.
Another cigarette bill appeared this
morning. Its provisions seem to be sub
stantially the same as those of the Allen
bill. It was referred to the same com
mittee and the result will probably be a
measure partaking of some of the fea
tures of each of the two acts proposed.
The bill is the work of Mr. Schwarg.
The house has a reading clerk at last.
John Jones of Minneapolis, the candidate
on trial for some days, was officially
named this morning.
To Fix Ip a Law.
In a certain decision the state supreme
court criticised that section of the pres
ent law which provides for an extension of
the life of corporations. It appears that the
act is valid as to certain classes of cor
porations, but not as to banks, and also
that its title is defective. A bill by Mr.
Lornmen substantially re-enacts the pres
ent law with modifications and adds a most
important section requiring the payment of
the present graduated fee whenever a cor
poration claims an extension of existence.
The Hendrieks' bill of yesterday was not
recognized at the time as being the consti
tutional amendment defeated at the last
election. Its object is to provide an en
larged field of investment for the perma
nent university and school fund.
Hail itißnraiice Bill.
The house agricultural committee this af
ternoon considered a plan for mutual hail
insurance under the direction of county audi
tors and the state auditor. C. .1. McCollum,
of Hallock, appeared before the committee.
Under his plan, farmers desiring to insure
their crop wil notify the county auditor, giv
ing the number of acres, and will receive a
policy. The county auditor will report all
grain insured in his county to the state audi
tor. After the crop has been gathered, the
losses are figured up and assessed at so much
per acre on all grain insured. The assess
ment becomes a first lien on the crop.

the owner of the bunch of horses recently
recovered from a crowd of rustlers near
Yankton, is lying at his hotel in this city

jostled against him and asked if his name
was Bradshaw. He answered yes,' when
one of them struck at him and as he
warded off the blow, the other struck
him with a knife. He did not recognize
either man, but thinks it was a move for
revenge on the part of the rustlers.
