TO HELP ALONG THE DUNN BILL The HouMe lulU Back the Hlllinond Bill and Vnt* It on the Table. Unamended in any important particular the Nichols bill taxing express companies was reported to pass by the committee of the whole in the house this morning. Mr. Laybourn almost succeeded in persuading the majority to exempt certain forms of property, real estate, buildings, etc., from the tax. Failing in this, he besought the house to increase the per cent of taxation to six. Mr. Jacobson also took up the cudgels in behalf of the increase pointing out that this tax was raised on state and not on interstate business. Said he: The gross earnings tax on railroads is com puted on all business handled within the state, no matter where it may originate. In the case of express companies, the tax is based upon the state's business, strictly speaking. An increase to G per cent will impose no heavier burden upon the express companies than the railroads now bear. Questioned His (iood Faith. Mr. Lay bourn had been present at the meeting of the committee on taxes and tax laws at which the bill had been acted upon, and Mr. Rich, therefore, impugned his good faith in seeking to amend the bill at this time. Mr. Lay bourn respond ed that he was not present when the vote was taken in the committee. Mr. Sageng, replying to the statement that the. senate would never - indorse an increase in the tax, contended that members of the house were not supposed, to govern themselves by such considerations. It was their, duty ; to consult the interests of the state;, not to speculate upon any action which | might be taken by the upper body. Not- ] withstanding the showing made, the sec ond Laybourn amendment was also re jected. rj.vi' Preparing for Emergencies. . There was an echo of yesterday's strug gle over the primary election bill in a mo tion made by Mr. Hlllmond, author of H. F. 13, extending primary election to the state. Mr. Hillmond had the vote recon- j sidered by which his bill was indefinitely postponed, and the bill then laid upon the table. This gives the house the whip hand over the senate in case any ill fate befalls the Dunn bill. ;'.Vv Bills Disposed Of. Bills finally disposed of on general or ders included the following: H. P. —For the disposition of real estate bid in for the state at the forfeited tax sales held pursuant to chapter 322; to pass as : amended. •~W*&QUftts < H. F. 47—Relating to the taxation of ex press companies; to pass as amended. H. F. 194—Relating to elections; to pass. H. F. 156—Regulating the practice of oste opathy; indefinitely postponed. H. F. 69—To cura defective foreclosure of real estate mortgages in certain cases; to pass. H. F. 125— To legalize and validate certain proceedings under the banking law; to pass. Mr. Anderson's bill, H. F. 125, is pure ly local. One of the Winona banks neg lected for two weeks to comply with cer tain features of the banking law, and the bill represents its appeal to the legisla ture. Days of Grace on the Table. The Deming bill, abolishing days of grace, was indefinitely postponed. It was conceded that a bank rarely made a note without striking out that condition which allows three days beyond the stated time of the note. When the committee rose, Mr. Deming had his bill excepted from the report and laid upon the table. Coller Bill Amended. Before the Coller bill, regulating the discipline of attorneys, was allowed to pass an amendment was inserted reducing the payment of prosecutors from $15 to |10 a day. This is the rate at which members of the board of bar examiners are compensated, and that fact being dis closed, the amendment was received with out objection. Before the house adjourned, Mr. Ward, chairman of the committee on temper ance, obtained permission for the use of the hall of representatives Thursday evening for* a hearing of the house and senate committees on temperance on the county option bill. ON THE BAND WAGON House Members Scramble On in Pri- niary Election Bill Tote. The Dunn primary election bill, passed by the house yesterday afternoon, repre sents a distinct compromise. The debate began at 2 o'clock and concluded at 5. The vote upon the passage of the bill, as orig inally recorded, was 83 yeas, .33 nays, but the negatives soon dwindled to 14, the voting being "accompanied by facetious re marks respecting the band-.wagon. The bill was taken up as a special order in connection with the Hillmond bill, pro viding for the extension of the Hennepin primary election law to the state at large. Mr. Hillmond very energetically lent him self to the passage of the Dunn bill and with a show of spirit, that wes exceeding ly liberal, urged all his friends to vote for any primary election measure that could be passed through the house. There were numerous amendments of fered. Mr. Wells endeavored to limit the application of the primary election princi ple to counties of 35,000 population or over but this was rejected by the house. Mr. Oppegaard suggested a June date for the primaries but this was also rejected. In common with others fighting against the bill these two members held that the pro posed law, while it would give very happy results, in populous counties to dictato county politics. Following the passage of the Dunn bill the Hillmond bill was in dentlfied postponed. FOR A TEACHERS' FUXD Twin City Teacher* Supporting Re tirement Fund BUI. The twin city teachers are strongly in favor of the bill now in both houses es tablishing a teachers' retirement fund. The Minneapolis teachers have alr«i" tablished a fraud by voluntary action, but they want legislative sanction. A delega tion of about 200 appeared last evening before the house committee on education. The committee took no action. The sen ate committee has decided to report the bill out without recommendation. The bill makes the adoption of the plan op tional with school boards. BOARD OF CONTROL BILL, Special Order in Both Houses—ln the Honse To-morrow. The board of control bill has been made a special order in both houses. It will be taken up in the house to-morrow after noon and in the senate Thursday at 2 p. in. AMES WANTS TO SEE HIM He Would Talk With Senator Sny- der About Civil Service. The Snyder civil service bill is making progress very slowly. It Is still in the hands of the senate committee, and may never get any farther. Chief of Police Ames called at the capitol yesterday with several members of the Minneapolis po lice department, including Secretary Tom Brown and Inspectors Price, Farnham, Nelson and Harvey. Several members of the Hennepin delegation were inter viewed, and Senator Snyder was requested to call on Mayor Ames when the mayor returns from his trip, and consult with him regarding the bill. The fire department is anxious for a THE MINNEAPOLIS JOURNAL. civil service commission. It is possible that a new bill will be introduced, putting the lire department alone under civil service. WHICH MAJORITY COUNTS? A HEAPPORTIOXMEXT QIESTIOX Conference Committee Get* ToK^th er—The Senate May Recede and Settle the Matter. The conference committee on reappor tionment got together at 4 o'clock this afternoon. The committee consists of Senators Lord, Shell and McGill, and Representatives Anderson, Jacobson and Bean. It was reported to-day that one of the senate conferees would agree to a report by which the senate should recede from its amendment. If the other two senate members hold out an interest ing point will be raised. Does it require a majority of the con ferees from each house to bring in a re port, or does a majority of the joint com mittee determine the report? Lieutnant Governor Smith is said to hold the former view, but the members of the conference committee seen to-day think that only a majority of the committee is required. Should a majority report in favor of the senate's receding from its amendment, the senate would probably comply and settle the reapportionment question for good. New Senate Bills. S.

The St. Paul Woodmen gave a banquet last evening to the members of their order in the legislature. Governor Van Sant, Dar Reese, E. W. Stark, W. B, Anderson and Senator Ilalvorson were the speakers. There is a surplus of entertainment pro vided for legislative members this evening. The Minneapolis Elks will entertain all who will come, the G. A. R. will hold a camp fire in St. Paul and the Shriner* will have something specially good for their friends. The country newspapers are poking a good deal of fun at the biennial bill closing Sun day places of amusement. They hint that a scarcity of passes to the St. Paul playhouses is largely responsible for the measure. Rep resentatives Noyes and Wells have been given credit for the bill, but it was introduced by Mr. Mark of Mill© Lacs. OVERRUN WITH SMALLPOX Hnndreda of Caiei, Some of Malig nant Type, in Southern lowa. Special to The Journal. Centerville, lowa, March 12.—Southern lowa is overrun with smallpox and Cen terville is the only city of any size that has not from five to 200 cases. There are not fewer than 500 cases in this part of the state. Ottumwa has over 200; Albia, 100; Bloomfield, 50; Moravia, 50; Mystic, 75, and Moulton, 25. Centerville has a strict quarantine against all affected towns. All roads and all railway trains are guarded by armed men* to prevent suspects from coming here. The whole country is alarmed, as the disease is a malignant form in many places and several persons have died. NO CAUSE FOR FRIGHT. Chicago Times-Herald. "John," she cried, "John, get up! The alarm clock's ringing!" "Well," be answered, turning over, "let'er ring. It'll stop after a while." MUCH ALTERED BILL The Hurd Oil Bill as It Passes the Senate. HOUSE MAY REFUSE TO CONCUR It* Member* Said to Be Whetting Their Knlven for Senate Amendment. Not a vote was recorded against the Hurd oil inspection bill when it was called up for final action in the senate this morn ing, and it was passed wuh fifty-two votes in its favor. Secretary Langum hurried the bill to the house, which is reported to be eager to put the knife into the senate amendments. In its present form the measure has lost its force as a winning card for ihe repub lican party to play in the coming cam paign. That it is the wish of the honest voters of the state to see the oil inspec tion fee "scandal" done away with at once is recognized jay all of the • beat members of the senate, but a majority of that body has willed that the law shall not become operative until Jan. 1, 1903. Lack of sincerity will be imputed to those senators who dared not directly oppose the bill but -who assisted the Schiffman-War ner crowd by shielding it from the drastic provisions of the Hurd bill until it gets out of office and has cleaned up all the coin within reach of the grasping fingers of its members. A Conference Probable. It is believed that the house will concur in the senate amendment restoring the fee for inspecting oil in tanks from 10 cents to 15 cents and will also approve af another minor amendment, but new members who J* aye,n°t yet fallen under the spell of the "oily ' crowd may be expected to oppose the senate amendment to stay the opera tion of the measure until 1903. In case the house does not concur in the senate rider, which is very probable at this time, a conference committee to patch up a compromise will be named. Ready tor Bequests. Much speculation was created in the course of the morning, when Senator Sny der proposed a bill authorizing the uni versity regents to accept bequests and gifts and asked for its passage under suspension of the rules. The conclusion which all jumped at was that some one possessed of wealth was about to remem ber the sitate university with a liberal gift. The Kill was promptly passed and the bequests can come as fast as they like. Senator Snyder stated afterward that there was no rich present coming that he was aware of, but that there was no au thority .vested in the board of regents to receive endowments and gifts and invest and manage them. In order that there should be no hitch or legal taugles in the future, it was deemed advisable to con fer the desired authority on the regents. As a matter of fact the regents have for years past accepted and managed small be quests for scholarships and other pur poses. Expenses of a Trial. Martin county citizens think the state should pay the expenses of the trial of Lerois and Hans Kellihan for the murder of O. E. Ostern and George Thorburn. The crime was committed ait Sherburne and was followed by a sensational chase of the murderers. It cost the county $2,800, and Senator Viesselman offered a bill this morning to reimburse the county in that sum. Senator Greer sent up a measure appropriating $4,500 for enlarging and repairing the chemical laboratory in the medical department of the state uni versity. Farmers who have Isolated tracts of land not on public highways and no way of reaching them except over the lands of other people, may secure a valuable privilege from a bill offered to-day by Senator Young. His plan directs town supervisors to open a road to such tracts on the petition of the owners. Authorizes an Elective Coarse. A substitute bill relating to a state high school board was offered by the sen ate committee on education. It makes county superintendents and high school principals eligible to appointment on the board and authorizes an elective course in English or business studies in graded schools. Winona's Plant Frosted. Winona's plan to secure its own elec tric lighting plant was nipped by a kill ing frost. Senator Fitzpatrick's bill, au thorizing the city council in cities of from 10,000 to 50,000 inhabitants to issue bonds for such plants, was killed by a vote of 28 to 26. An effort had been made to re fer the measure to a special committee consisting of Senators Fitzpatrick, Hospes, Brower and Benedict, for Still water, St. Cloud and Mankato have as much interest in the bill as Winona. But Fitzpatrick insisted on a vote at once, and he got it. Were They Getting; Even? Representative Anderson was much in terested in this bill, and was disappointed when he heard the news of its defeat. Several of the Minneapolis senators voted against the measure—just enough of them to kill it —and it is a shrewd guess that they were squaring things with Mr. An derson for his kindness toward Henne pin county in the reapportionment fight. Some stir was created by the report of the senate committee on public health recommending that the Bush "renovated butter" bill be indefinitely postponed. The senators from the rural districts objected strongly to disposing of the bill in this 8 M ffilfil ■ M'Kt^Fl In irE 5 11 I' • I T^^j 1 I 1 I _^ r ;^| "=E § ■■fi^^Hil^BS-<5--'■*■':'v"-rs 'I Winston, Harper, Fisher & Co., KJ ■B, i~r § |m<"'■-"'BBBms'. ■-•• ■',■■■ :1-""-'"'-h jo Distributers. Minneapolis, Minn. manner, and when Senator Knatvold moved that the bill be placed on general orders, they came to his rescue with enough votes to override the committee's recommendation. BELTRAMI AND CASS TAXES The Senate Approves the Removal of the Limit. With a bare majority yesterday after noon, the senate disposed of much business which had been piling up from various causes, tNo bills were taken up for final passage, but a big wad of bills on general orders was reduced to respectable propor tions. Seuator McCarthy was successful in se curing the approval of the senate to his bill -removing the limit of taxation in Bel trami and Cass counties. It was, he said, favored by every voter in his county. The court could not sit because there were no funds with which to pay the jury fees, the sheriff could not feed his prisoners and it was impossible to maintain a quarantine against smallpox. The bill was recom mended for passage as were two others intended to 'relieve the pressure in the same section of the state. For St. Peter Hospital \nrses. Senator Johnson's bill to reimburse the female nurses and attendants of the St. Peter hospital for the loss of their per sonal effects by fire was approved, the amount provided is $2,10ii.30. The finance committee had cut the sum in half, but when Senator Johnson read a list of the values placed by the girls on their apparel and reached the item of underwear claimed by Miss Larson, the whole senate was swung against the finance committee and in favor of the full amount. The item read, "Underwear, $2." "That settles it," declared Senator Ives convincingly as he arose in haste, "I'll submit to any senator here competent to judge, that $2 is a reasonable valuation for that portion of any woman's apparel." Government Park Opposition. That there is considerable opposition to the plan of converting the Indian reserva tions in northwestern Minnesota into a government park was shown when the me morial to congress came up. Senator Mc- Carthy protested against favorable action on the memorial at this time and in def erence to his wishes it was laid over. Other Bills Hecoramened. Other bills recommended to pass by the committee of the whole were Senator Benedict's bill amending the law of 1893 relative to the payment of fees by banks and trust companies and providing for an assistant bank examiner; the judiciary com mittee bill fixing the salaries of probate judges in certain counties under 80,000; Senator Sweningsen's bill' requiring that none but licensed oculists shall fit lenses to the human eye; Senator Buckman's bill to provide for the preservation of for ests of this state and for the prevention and suppression of forest and prairie fires; Representative Wallace's bill making it forgery in the third degree to counterfeit the card, seal, label or certificate of any labor organization; Senator Jepson's bill allowing county coroners a fee of $5 a case in order to put a stop to the deputizing practice. Senator Baldwin presented a bill which allows a jury to take to the jury room the pleadings and bills of particulars that may be filed in a case, in addition to the other papers allowed by law. CARNEGIE HEARD FROM Library Dispenser Will Give to Ce dar Rapids on the Usual Terms. Cedar Rapids, lowa, March 12.—Secre tary Simmons of the Cedar Rapids Com mercial club anonunced to-day that he had received definite assurances that An drew Carnegie will give this city $50,000 for the erection of a public library build ing. The offer is made conditional upon the city's providing a site and voting a tax of $5,700 annually as a support fund. The site will be procured at once and the tax is already in effect, the four-tenths of a mill levy raising a little over $6,000 an nually. It is expected that the building will be completed by the end of the pres ent year. At the school election held here yester day, the free text book proposition carried by a close vote. RENVILLE'S EARLY FIRE Large Stock of Dale <fc Company Is Damaged. Special to The Journal. Renville, Minn., March 12.—At 8:30 o'clock this morning fire was discovered in the base ment of J. H. Dale & Co.'s brick block, and in a few minutes the entire basement was so charged with gas and smoke it was impossible to locate the fire and water was indiscrimi nately poured in for an hour before the flames were r under control. It was a close call for the southeast part of the town, as there was a high wind blowing. The loss of Dale & Co. will be large, as they had just received their spring stock. There will be little salvage on goods. The stock was valued at $20,000, with an insurance of $10,000. The damage to the building was $3,000 and is cov ered by insurance.

Cedar Palls, lowa, March 12. —The prop erty of the defunct Columbia Straw Paper company was sold under the hammer yes terday at Waterloo by G. W. Dupee of Chicago, a special commissioner of the United States court. Among the bidders were C. A. Wise, C. B. Santee of this city and W. A. Dugane, manager of the Cedar Falls Mill company. The properties were bid on separately and offered in a bunch. A bid of $7,500 was received, when M. Weinman of New York, representing the bondholders of the defunct concern, offered $12,000 which was raised to $13,000 by Mr. Dugane. From there it was run up to $18,000 and knocked down to Mr. Weinman. What will be done with the property is not known. The mill has been closed for several years.

Amazing Success of a New Home ilethod That Any One Can Apply. Is Curing Cases of Thirty and Forty Years* Standing Is Sent Free to Try. More than twelve ■years ago a machinist in the toolroom of the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy railroad snops at Aurora, 111., met I with an unfortunate accident causing a bad rupture. He was given expert medical treat ment and used what wa3 considered a good truss, but no improvement was noted. After frequent experiments with other trusses and treatments he sent for a free trial of a. nietii- GEORGE O. PLUMMER. od invented by Dr. Rice of Adams. N. V.. and as it was a new idea, the method was tried and improvement began immediately. In a few weeks the sufferer was entirely cured. This happened twelve years ago and is now given publicity in order to offset the popular notion that a surgical operation is the only way to cure rupture. The machinist referred to above is George O. Plummer. 3St> La Salle street Aurora, 111., and a prominent member of the Willard M. E. church. Mr. Flummer hasn't worn his truss for twelve years, and as his work in the rail way shops is trying to his muscles, his per manent cure of a bad rupture is certainly sufficient to interest other unfortunates who are going through life in misery. Write to Dr. \V. S. Rice, 510 B, Main street, Adams, N. V., and he will send a complete and de tailed description of his method whereby you can cure your rupture at home without pain, danger, operation or detention from business. Write at once for a free trial of this re markable method and if you know of others ruptured -write for them.
