Quarreling Women Pacified by Dis
trict Judge Simpson.
SuHxeaU to AB»trUn-Hoii|tarl«n Be
nevolent Society That Dispute
Be Settled Amicably.
Judge Simpson of the district court this
morning, for the nonce, cast aside the
stern demeanor of a disinterested Judge
and apepared in the role of peacemaker,
and appeared in the role of peacemaker,
between a number of women belonging
to the same order, and doing away with no
end of litigation.
When court opened the room was filled
with women members, and ex-members,
of the Austrian-Hungarian Ladies' Benev
olent society, the opposing factions oc
cupying seats on separate sides of the
courtroom. By the manner with which they
eyed each other, it was evident that there
were breakers ahead.
According to the pleadings, the case was
that of Pauline Luttinger, Mary Arbeiter
and other members of the society against
Anna Gruldl, the former president, Mary
Rublnger, the secretary ;Mrs. M. Eisner,
treasurer, and the German American bank.
The court was asked to enjoin the de
fendants from interfering with the prop
erty of the society, to enjoin the bank
from paying out trust funds and for the
return of the money now on deposit Into
the treasury.
A Worthy Object.
The object of the society (in marked con
trast to the present contention), it was ex
plained, was to cultivate sociability and
German manners and customs, to cul
tivate the domestic virtues and to en
hance the mental and spiritual welfare of
the members, and, incidentally, to ad
vance the interests of the Austrian-Hun
garian Men's Benevolent society, and also
to cultivate a sisterly feeling among its
own members.
Some time ago the members engaged in
a dispute over the conduct of its affairs,
the result being that the officers and a mi
nority of the members withdrew and form
ed another organization known as the La
dies' Auatrian-Hungarian-German Benev
olent society.
R. S. Kolliner appeared for the plain
tiffs and Chris Gallagher for the defen
dants, and when court opened Judge Simp
son told the attorneys that in his Judg
ment the case was about to involve a
great amount of unnecessary litigation,
and that the time of the court should not
be taken up with a factional fight, which,
in all probability, would only widen the
breach and be detrimental to the welfare
of the order.
"This is a question," said the court,
"as to whether one set of officers or an
other shall art, and the members could
easily get together and agree upon a new
set of officers who should be elected by
Kolliner Is Willing-.
Mr. Kolliner said that while the de
fendants had been false to their trusts,
the society would be glad to receive them
with open arms, but that they could "not
come back as officers.
Judge Simpson said that such a quarrel
was to be deplored, and he felt certain that
if rightly understood the members could
get together and elect a set of officers
satisfactory to both factions.
After some further talk on these lines I
it was decided to pass the case for two
weeks. An effort will be made to hold
an election a week from Saturday. The
court appointed George Huhn, who is con
nected with the bank, which holds $500
trust money, to preside over the election.

Manager Webster on T. C. Co.'s St.
Paul Franchise.
Manager Webster, of the Twin City
Telephone company, says that there Is no
reason to suppose that the St. Paul fran
chise granted to the Mississippi Valley
company will not hold good with the pres
ent organization, notwithstanding the
clause of the franchise which expressly
states that no transfer could be made to
any other company, and that it should not
consolidate with any other concern.
"Our company is practically the old one
under a new name," said Mr. Webster.
"The interests are the same and the stock
holders include those of the Mississippi
Valley company. We merely reorganized
and took a new name."
This question is now being considered
by the city attorney of St. Paul, and If
he renders his opinion to-day the commit
tee on streets will this evening take ac
tion upon the application of the Twin
City company to lay conduits in the St.
Anthony Hill and Rice street districts.
Bank Examiner Pope on Ramsey
Auditor's Irregularities.
Bank Examiner Pope filed his report
with Governor Van Sant this afternoon,
ventilating the tax refundment irregulari
ties in Ramsey county.
The report declares,that through loose
methods in the county auditor's office, the
law has been violated in many particulars.
One James F. Burns, well known about
the court house, has been permitted to
use tax refundment certificates for pur
poses of speculation.
He finds that nine certificates for which
warrants have been drawn and paid have
never been turned in, but are still out
standing. County Auditor Johnson was
away at the time the irregularities oc
curred, and Harry T. Griswold, a deputy,
is held blameable. The state auditor's
office is freed from all responsibility.
Governor Van Sant read the report and
conferred with the bank examiner, but
has not determined what action he will

Takes a Stand at Fourth uttd Heuue
pln—ratrolniMu'a Diagnosis
Contradicts Doctor*.
Barney Brady, an expressman, 129 West
ern avenue, was taken sick several days
ago with smallpox. Brady was ordered
into quarantine Tuesday and smallpox
signs were placed on his house. Early
Wednesday morning a patrolman was as
signed to duty in front of the house, as is
customary In such cases, with instruc
tions to preserve a rigid quarantine.
Yesterday afternoon Brady was walking
the streets, greeting his old friends and
making merry about his usual haunts.
Signs of the dreaded disease were so man
ifest on his face and forehead as to make
many with" whom he came in contact,
keep at as safe a distaneo as possible.
Brady spent most of the afternoon at
Fourth street and Hennepin avenue' con
versing with fellow expressmen having
stands at that place. Meanwhile Brady's
home, adorned, both front and back, with
smallpox signs, and closely guarded by an
eager-eyed patrolman, was deserted.
How Brady escaped is a mystery. It is
said that the patrolman on guard at the
house held the opinion that Brady did not
have the smallpox. In fact he did not
believe there had been a real, good, old
fashioned case in the city during the
whole epidemic. Late yesterday after
noon Brady was taken, after his little out
ing, back to his bouse.
Several persons are known to have vis
ited him during his illness, among them a
lawyer, who caught the disease, and sev
eral other friends; all this despite the
rigid quarantine.
It is said that several weeks ago Brady
allowed a man and wife suffering from
smallpox to sleep in his barn for several
days. Later they left the city, having
eluded the vigilance of the health officers.
It is thought that Brady in this way con
tracted the diseaae.

Their Notorious Variety Theater la
Once More Running;.
. Although the grand jury is still in ses
sion the notorious Sodinl variety theater
on Washington avenue has reopened and
Is running full blast in much the same
way as before the death of Hazel Murphy
induced J. C. Sodinl'to shut the doors of
the place.
Evidently Mr. Sodini has reached the
conclusion that whatever storm was
raised because of that unfortunate occur
rence has already blown over. Liquor is
stHl sold on the premises, Intoxicants are
served in the private boxes and there is
little attempt made to preserve any dis
tinction between the saloon and the the
It will be remembered that at the time
the place was closed Brando Sodini gave
an interview to The Journal, in
which he said that he and his brother
were about to quit the show business once
for all and enter the wholesale fruit busi
ness. Since that interview the Sodlnis
have evidently exercised the privilege of
changing their minds. The change is said
to be due to inability to rent the property.
Another Delay In the Erection of
There is another hitch in the public
bathhouse matter. Leek & Prince, the con
tractors whose bid for the construction of
bathhouses was accepted by the city coun
cil, now desire, It is said, to be released,
and prefer to forfeit the check for $100
accompanying the bid rather than com
plete the contract. Their bid was $866
for each house. The only other bid re
ceived was about 75 per cent higher. A
special meeting of the council committee
on public grounds and buildings has been
called for to-morrow afternoon to con
■ider the next step. Chairman Peterson
favors relieving the contractors, pocketing
the $100 forfeit money, and then doing
the work by day labor under direction of
the city engineer. There will notbe time,
he holds, to readvertise for bids at this
Stage of proceedings.

committee, and by Mrs. M. E. Sewell,
grand secretary.
Business of Importance,
The principal matters to be disposed of
at the regular sessions are the election
permanent headquarters, the selection of
a place for the next grand division,
changes in the insurance system and the
establishment of a home for superannuated
and disabled members.
Grand Chief Conductor E. E. Clark,
who has filled the place for ten years,
will be re-elected. The assistant grand
chief, A. B. Garretson, is strong with the
southwestern conductors, but is believed
to be satisfied with his present position.
Grand Secretary-treasurer W. J. Max
well desires re-election, but A. W. Hol
loway, of New York city, and W. E. Miller
are also candidates. Howard Leech, of
Jackson, Mich., and Charles S. Wilklns of
Chicago are candidates for the position of
grand senior conductor, the latter for re
On the question of establishing a home
sentiment has not crystallized. There is
a home at Highland Park, Chicago, but it
is supported by voluntary contributions
and is not wholly an institution of the
order. It is proposed to move the home
to a farm and erect cottages, the expense
to be borne by a direct assessment against
the different divisions pro rata accord
ing -to membership.
Cedar Rapids' Wants.
Cedar Rapids, lowa, has a large section
of its commercial club on the ground to
labor for the retention of the headquarters
in that town. Two years ago Dcs Moines
secured the passage of a resolution re
moving the headquarters to that city, but
Cedar Rapids managed to have the matter
referred to the board of directors. Thomas
H. Simmons, secretary of the commercial
club and a corps of active hustlers. J. M.
Grimm, C. G. Green, C. S. Metcalf and
E. E. Pinney have established headquar
ters in rooms 154-156 at the Ryan and
they have apparently won the day. The
grand officers are satisfied with the pres
ent location and the city will offer even
better inducements than before. Dele-
gate C. A. Davidson is doing some work
lor Cleveland, but the lowans are con
fident. The fact that the insurance branch
is organized under the laws of lowa is
likely to influence the delegates against
any change. ..;'.■' •
K. C. After '03 Meeting.
r A new candidate for the 1903 convention
has apepared in Kansas City. W. Welch
of Kansas City and W. E.; Miller of Se
dalia are supplying the "hot air." Pitts
burg is ; still In the field, but has not even
the united support of the Pennsylvania
delegation. . Cincinnati boomers are the
only ones who have opened headquarters,
and their badges are on every breast, and
their unique cards, prepared by Colonel W.
A. Fox, are in every collection. At the
present time there is little doubt that Cin
cinnati will win, the: commercial club of
that ctty has obtained the good will of the
delegates by contributing a considerable
sum to the grand, division and has shown
that it wants the conductors and will en
tertain them royally.
? The Brotherhood of Locomotive Engi
neers took charge of . the visitors to
day and treated them to a steam
boat excursion on the Mississippi to Min
nehaha park, visiting the falls and sol
diers' home and- Fort Snelling. Refresh
ments were served at Minnehaha by the
ladies' auxiliary -of the B. L. E. The
evening entertainment was. at. the audi

F. G. McMillan Lands the Price frith
a Bid of $18,268— Many
Competitor*. .
t'y.'i .' y : y' "" — ; ...■-';,.■.;.
; F. G. McMillan, Minneapolis, has been
awarded the contract for the superstruc
ture of the new agricultural building at
the state fair grounds, . his bid being
$18,268. Mr. McMillan got the prize after
a close contest, in which there were seven
or eight competitors, all figuring "down
to bedrock" for the contract. The founda
tion for the building is already in.
Water Contract Closed.
The contract between St. Paul and the
State Agricultural association for connect
ing the fair ground water system with
that of St. Paul has been closed.
Will Boom the Races.
W. P. IJams of Terre Haute, Ind.,
president of the American Trotting asso
ciation, has been invited to act as start
ing Judge at the fair races. It is felt
that Mr. IJams will accept and that his
acceptance will boom the races and in
sure the entry of a very desirable class
of horses.
Episcopalians Think He Will Be
Bishop-Coadjutor of Minn.
To all appearances Bishop Edsall will
be the choice of the diocesan convention
for bishop coadjutor of the diocese of Min
nesota. A careful canvass has been made of
southern Minnesota, which stands solid
for Edsall. The St. Paul clergy seem to
favor him, but Minneapolis is still uncer
tain. St. Mark's, of course, will stand
for Rev. H. P. Nichols first, last and all
the time. All Saints' parish will prob
ably vote for Mr. Nichols. Holy Trinity
is understood to be for Bishop Edsall, also
St. Andrew's, but Gethsemane, which has
fourteen votes, is uncertain, as well as St.
A gentleman who is authority among
churchmen says that the clergy will have
about 90 votes at the Winona convention,
and the laity about 150. In Joint conven
tion the candidate to be elected must re
ceive a majority of the votes of each
house. Each may originate a candidate
and it is probable that nominating
speeches will be allowed. This church
man figures that on the first ballot Edsall
will receive 35 votes of the clergy, Rev.
Mr. Nichols 10 votes, consisting of the
Scandinavian and Faribault votes; and
Rainsford three or four votes on the first
ballot which will swing to Nichols on the
C. C. Rolllt will have about twenty
votes, as he is the candidate of the grad
uates of the Faribault school. There are
thirty odd young men who will stand firm
for the Red Wing candidate. The older
men are less likely to vote for Mr. Rollit.
The attitude of the remaining clerical
vote is unknown. The laity vote cannot
be forecast at all.
Wait Street Wisdom.
The panic on 'Change shows the danger In speculation. But
there is risk in all business. No one cna accomplish anything
who will take no chances, and no amount of ability or care or
prudence will avoid serious mistakes and heavy losses. The
only prudent course is for every business man to" assume that
he may fail, and provide as well as he can for his security and
recovery when losses come.
There is no other security for this purpose which equals an
endowment policy in a reliable life insurance company. If
death comes your family and estate will be secure, and it you
meet reverses and failures before detah the value of your policy
will be clear gain.
WORCESTER, MASS., offers an unsurpassed policy for this pur
pose. It is practically an endowment policy .every year on ac
count of the high yearly cash values. Exact age and address to
either of the undersigned will secure a specimen policy with full
particulars. C. W. VAN TUYL,

Backers of Music Hall I ndertuUinjf
Want 950,000 From Him.
Minneapolis people are thoroughly in
terested in the movement for a big music
hall. An effort may be made to secure
aid from Andrew Carnegie. It is esti
mated that by public subscription and
other means $50,000 can be raised in Min
neapolis for this fund, and it is hoped
that Mr. Carnegie will see his way clear
to give the other $50,000 needed in build
ing the auditorium. A. F. Shuey of the
Kimball Piano company has given the
matter much thought, and Architect-E.
P. Ovennire has prepared plans accord
ing to the ideas of Mr. Shuey for a struc
ture that will have a seating capacity
of 4,600. It is estimated that the expense
of a music hall can be paid from the
rents, but that income from an invest
ment of this kind is impossible. The
plans made by Mr. Overmire provide for
the largest stage in the city and a large
number of boxes and loges.
Members of the Commercial Club say
that while the organization is interested
in the movement, the club as yet has
taken no action beyond discussing it
thoroughly in committee.
It Has Been Deposited AVitii County
Treasurer Bell.
County Treasurer Bell has received the
$25,000 bond required of Lake Minnetonka
residents to protect him in the omission
of the. lake Improvement tax this year.
The bond is signed by Russell M. Bennett,
Judge McGee, Judge Jamison and forty
others. This insures the omission of the
collection of the tax until the courts can
pass upon its legality.
Charged With Stealing a Diamond
From a KunKh Rider.
Judge McGee and a jury, yesterday took
up the case against John Reid, charged
with stealing a diamond stud valued at
$110 from John S. Hooper.
March 1 Hooper, who is a member of
the Roosevelt Marching club, boarded the
special train for the inaugural ceremonies
at Washington. He says he was followed
by the defendant Reid, and Harry Adams,
who entered the sleeping car, and pre
tended to take something from the upper
berth of the section occupied by him.
Just then there was a crush in the car,
during which the defendants and Hooper
came in close contact. Hot words were
exchanged, after which Reid and Adams
left. In a short time Hooper missed his
diamond, which, he says, had been
•frisked" from his shirt front. Adams
has not' yet been apprehended.
Two Nonsupport Caiei.
Wallace Pratt was arraigned before Judge
McGee yesterday on the charge of non
support, which under the new law is a felony.
He pleaded not guilty, and his trial was set
for May 29, bail being fixed at $25.
George A. Kenney pleaded not guilty to a,
similar charge, and his trial was set for the
same date, bail being fixed at $250.
An Attorney Reprimanded.
It Is not often that the serene temper of
Judge Brooks is ruffled, but it was tHls morn
ing, and the judge felt it his duty to repri
mand sharply an attorney whose carelessness
had delayed the court until patience had
ceased to be a virtue. The incident grew
out of the ejectment case of James C. Bleek
er against S. S. Wales, which has been con
tinued several days to await the return of
A. C. Middelstadt, attorney for the defendant,
who had gone to the country to try a case
before a Justice of the peace. The cage was
finally set for this morning, but Mr. Middel
stadt was again absent. Judge Brooks, be
coming Impatient, ordered the attorney to be
brought into court, and when Mr. MidiJelsUdt
apepared, the judge. In the presence of a
large number of attorneys, administered a
sharp .rebuke for the aparent indifference of
the attorney to his client's interests.
State Auditor Dunn Sued.
Newstrom Bros, of Altkin have sued State
Auditor Dunn and Cruiser Dedon individually
to recover $2,600 claimed to be the value of
logs seized by the state and sold last month.
The firm, it is asserted, had been cutting Um
ber on state school lands: the logs were
seized and the state's mark placed upon
them, and later they were sold at public auc
Deed to Old Courthouse.
Assistant County Attorney C. A. Smith la
engaged In drawing the deed for the transfer
of the old courthouse to A. Harris, whose
offer of $15,400 cash has been accepted by the
county board. The deed will be signed by the
county auditor and by the chairman and
members of the county board.
