REPLY TO HOKEMIER
Milk Inspector McCaJl Says Former
Inspector Errs.
Milk Inspector McCall of the Minneapolis
health department insists that H. A, Hoke
meier, former state dairy and food commis
sioner, who recently came to the rescue o£
thp milkmen who have been convicted of
selling milk below the standard, has an en
tirely erroneous idea of the situation in that
regard. Said Mr. McCall:
"Air. Hokemeier says this is a bad season
of th& year; that cows are changing on to
summer feed and that necessarily the quality
of the milk deteriorates. He also charges us
with taking samples from the bottom of the
cans.
Now, the situation in the matter of feed Is
no different practically from what it always
has been, and the fact that but twenty-three
of the 253 samples of milk that I have taken
this month showed below 3 per cent butter fat
ought to convince anybody that there Is noth
ing in the feed contention. As to taking milk
from the bottom of the can for samples, let
me say that we have to take the milk as we
find it. It is easy for the milkman by stirring
hi 3 milk frequently to keep it all of the same
standard throughout the can. If they get
caught that way it Is nobody"s fault but thei»
own. If they will keep cows that give milk
that tests up to the standard and care for
them properly, and then use proper diligence
in the tare and delivery of their milk, they
would never have any cause to complain of
the activity of this department."
BO3LETER CASE
It Is Argued Before the Supreme
Court.
The case of the state against the bonds
men of Joseph Bobleter. former state
treasurer, was argued in the supreme court
this morning. Attorney General Douglas
appeared for the state and L. B. Kellogg
aud if. V. Seymour of St. Paul for the
bondsmen. The euit is to enforce their
liability for the shortage caused by the
failure of banks holding state funds. It
now amounts to about $58,000.
HAMLINE GRADUATION EXERCISES.
The graduation exercises of the medical de
partment of Hamline university will take
place next Monday at Hennepin Avenue
Methodist church. A class of thirty will be
graduated. Rev. M. D. Shutter will speak on
"Progress and Problems of Medicine." Fol
i lowing the exercises a banquet will be held.

ATTITUDE TOWARD I GRAND JURY
The Mayor Will Not Accept Its Rec
ommendation* or >*a£»9 «n
Investigation. ,
General (Mayor) A. A. Ames arrived In
the city at 9:60 o'clock this morning di
rect from Owatonna. He repaired at once
to his residence where he laid aside the
gorgeous trappings pertaining to his rank
and . title as a member of the governor's
staff. At precisely 11:35 he appeared at
the city hall In his familiar role of mayor,
attired in a full suit of black, befitting the
solemn significance of the day.
His honor was in an amiable mood. He
looked well and declared that he had never
felt better. He said he.enjoyed himself
greatly at Owatonna, although the news
paper reporters cheated him out of his
dinner in their anxiety to learn his views
of the grand Jury's animadversions touch
ing his administration. The mayor said he
would review the Memorial day parade
in company with Governor Van Sant from
the East Side reviewing stand this after
noon. _
While the mayor -was as mild and sunny
as a May morning to all who were admit
ted to his presence, he was good-naturedly
sarcastic in discussing matters and things
with a Journal man.
Only Memories To-day.
"I am concerned with memories and
reminiscences to-day," he said, "and I
don't care to talk about grand Jurors or
business. There seems to be some doubt
in the mindß of many well meaning people
as to who i« mayor of Minneapolis. I wish
to respectfully refer them to the election
returns of last November. I suppose I
ought to allow The Journal and
Times to run the city half the time, con
sidering their splendid efforts during the
campaign, but if 1 should follow my Incli
nations in that regard I should be false
to the people who elected me. You know
there was nothing on the city ballot to
indicate to the voter that the newspapers
and not Dr. Ames was running for mayor.
But the contingency has arisen and I
am non-plussed. (His honor smiled archly
at the passing richness of his sarcasm).
"Now I may get scared," he went on with
the same curious smile, "and do Just as
they tell me to, and yet I don't see why I
should."
"As to the grand jury's report, what
have I got to do with their fault finding?"
What to Investigate.
"Will you order an investigation of the
charges of mismanagement in connection
with the city hospital," was asked.
"Charges, charges, no charges have been
made to me. What is there to investi
gate? talk, hearsay, vague complaints.
I tell you I know what hospital work is.
Take an Illustration. A sick man comes
in and says to me, 'I'm hungry.' I re
ply, 'all right, my dear fellow, we will
get you some nutritious food." We set a
bowl of chicken broth before him, or beef
tea. He says, 'I don't want that, give
me pie.'
"Well, if you don't give him pie he is
prepared to prefer charges against you
to the first newspaper reporter that gets
in his way. It is the same in the present
muddle, I believe."
"Now as to the Judiciary meddling with
my business." (His honor was still
smiling sarcastically and puffing his cigar
with the utmost satisfaction.) Do you
know there are several employees around
that courthouse whom I dislike a little
bit. Now I think I'll go down in a few
days and ask for their dismissal. I can
tell plenty of stories about them, and the
Judges and all others in authority will be
warranted in swallowing them all."
KlnK and Gardiner All Rl«ht.
"Will Captain King or License Inspector
Gardner be dismissed as a result of the
grand jury's recommendations?"
"Why, I have no charges to make against
those men and yet I am mayor. I sup
pose the Journal and the Times and a good
many other people who want to run the
administration know a great deal, but
they do not tell it to me. They tell it
behind closed doors and the men at
tacked are not heard. I told the grand
jurors a good many things myself and I
am ready at all times to tell them any
thing that concerns them, but they can't
run me. And," said his honor, rising to
leave the hall, "although the fact is pretty
well known, I am mayor of Minneapolis."
Last Mifht's Talk.
To his organ, Mayor Ames last night ex
pressed himself somewhat more vehement
ly in the following language:
The people do not elect grand jurors, and
in my opinion they are assuming a good deal
of latitude when they attempt to smirch the
officers of an administration a majority of the
people have elected.
I I look upon the report of the grand jury as
' cowardly, unjust, meddlesome, conceived in
political defeat, and a sample of the part of
the judicial branch of the city government to
dictate to and direct the executive.
The Jury should have indicted the two offi
cers whom they designate by the offices they
occupy if they had sufficient evidence upon
which to have offered the insult they have.
THEY'RE HARD HIT
••Norm" King:, et al. Condemn tbe
-y»tem That Plncheii Them.
The gentlemen of the administration
especially singled out by the grand Jury
for excoriation had plenty to say in their
defense last night, but, mindful of the
mayor's general orders, insisted upon say
ing it only to the representatives of the
administration organ. Chief of Detectives
"Xorm" King, now known among his con
ferees and associates as "Cap," is always
jaunty and clear up on his toes, no matter
how serious the situation. So it is not
strange that he isn't a bit cast down out
wardly by the grand jury'e stinging re
buke of his methods in driving crime and
criminals from the city. King says of the
jury's report (as quoted by the Tribune,
the Ames organ):
"I feel very pleasant over it. To all fair
minded men it must be evident that I am
innocent, or the grand jury would have in
! dieted me. After hearing but one side of the
j case, without giving me a chance to de
fend myself or make a statement before
that august body, 1 feel sure that all just
citizens can see 'or themselves that all the
evidence submitted to the grand jury was
only hearsay and talk given by my sworn
enemies who at all times are ready to turn
on their best friends and knife them.
"My business is to ferret out crime, and
on the day that a certain ex-policeman said
he saw me with a thief, the man .he means
was one named Taylor, whom I forced to
show me the resort of the big mitt gans
that I might be able to entrap them.
"I did not think the grand jury was a
body of men whom the law save authority
to rob men of their bread 'tnd butter and
their positions on hearsay. They saw fit,
like an old grandpa, to spank citizens and
publicly chide them for some act of theirs.
"If I am wrong, why did they not indict
me and give me a chance to be heard pub-
Hcly, and let it cost Hennepin county $7,000
or $8,000 more on top of the heavy load
they have already placed vpon the taxpay
ers of the county for witness fees and extra
sittings of the grand jury.
"I am not trying to please criminals, and
am not desirous of their recommendations.
I have that confidence in Mayor Ames and
Superintendent Ames to report to them every
act of mine in the presence of the police de
partment, openly and above board."
Price Dreaku Ont.
License Inspector Price, who hasn't been
hit yet. also breaks out in clamorous la
ment. He vouches for King's diligence and
ability as a sleuth; declares that be is a
profound hater of all crime and criminals
and will follow them to the death.
Gardiner's Lament.
License Inspector Gardiner is an even
tempered, jovial sort of a chap, and evea
the citizens of Minnehaha Falls who fought
his tough dance house to a finish admit
that he has many genial qualities. He
THE MINNEAPOLIS JOIJKNAI^
hunt any good opinion of the grand Jury
or respect for its conclusions, the Ames
organ says, and affects the sarcastic In
discussing the matter. Tbeir idea of equal
ity Is based on the blue laws of Connecti
cut, he says, "and, given the opportunity,
they would engage in witch burning and
whipping Quakers with a zest that would
put to shame every set of narrow-minded
bigots whom the world ever knew."
In explanation of his alleged neglect of
his duties he says:
"Rwfwring to that clause of the report
which says that 3e**ses have bpen granted
on applications approved by me, when I
must have known that the accompanying
affidavit was rank perjury, I wish to state
that these applications go to the office of
the olty clerk. I have no means of knowing
if the applicant has sworn to a lie' unless
he has previously been proved guilty and
the record stands against him.
"Whenever a man haa conducted a saloon
for several years and there Is no record
against him showing him to be unfit, I have
no right to recommend that his application
be turned down. I also have no right to
prejudice the fitness of new applicants to run
saloons. Still, farther. If a man has been
found unfit or incompetent _ the matter is
under the police surveillance,' and should be
regulated by the police authorities.
"Regarding the transfer of licenses from
one person to another or from one location
to another, any law is naturally made rigid
and unbending and therefore it is the duty
of the executive, in order that justice may
be done to individuals who have invested
money, if any unforseen accident or change
occurs, to change the license from one in
dividual to another or oftentimes to another
location.
"In this manner no Injustice is done the
man who has his money invested, nor does
the city lose. The sliniltude of the posi
tion of the executive and judiciary is such
that the judge is given latitude in sentenc
ing so that he does not need to adhere
strictly to the letter of the law.
"Conditions are constantly changing, and
as the laws governing the same never change,
it Is necessary and in equity that the exe
cutive be allowed the same latitude. It is
also necessary that the city protect such
investors of money In the interests of jus
tice and not hold up individuals in so doing.
The Grand Jury System.
Coming back to the grand Jury again,
he pays his compliments to the system,
suddenly found to be such a precarious one,
as follows:
From the evidence submitted by the grand
jury we are forced to the conclusion that in
the interests of good government the present
system is a relic of barbarism and a species
of Inquisition, which works injury, creates
expense, works rank injustice, brands inno
cent men as criminals, creates crime Instead
of abolishing it. As such this body is the
worst enemy to good government, and we rec
ommend that it be abolished.
Clark's Lame Defense.
Dr. E. J. Clark of the city hospital is
about the hardest hit man in the list.
He insists that he has been put in an un
fair light by the grand jury. He thinks
that he ought to have a chance to explain
some things, and intimates that when the
other side is heard the effect of the grand
Jury's strictures will be considerably mod
ified. He declares that he has had
enough of the hospital anyway and that he
will get out at the end of his term, July
1. He insists that he wants an investi
gation by the board of corrections and
charities, and when that time comes he
will be able to prove the whole report, so
far as he is concerned, to be a lie. In ex
planation of some of his methods found
wanting Dr. Clark says:
Regarding the keeping of the hospital ac
counts, the only clerical department under
my direction is the cash drawer. The money
in the cash drawer I have accounted for ac
cording to the agreement I entered into when
I accepted the position. 1 have not kept a
cash book. I said I would not keep a cash
book in the first place.
Whatever minor articles of necessity that
have been purchased directly from the hospi
tal for the hospital I have taken out of the
cash drawer.
About the carelessness of the admitting
physician of the contagious ward In going
frequently from the contagious ward into the
inlying departments of the hospital, I do not
see what necessity would call for such negli
gence when we have telephone connections
between the wards and between the hospital
and the contagious building.
Byrnes Says Little.
Dr. W. J. Byrnes, city physician, is held
by the grand Jury to have been grossly
negligent in the discharge of the duties
of his office. Dr. Byrnes, in common with
the other censured officials, has an erron
eous idea of the grand jury's role. He
holds that he has not been treated fairly,
in that he was not allowed to appear in
person before the Jury and speak in his
own defense. He did his best to break
into the grand jury 's presence a few days
ago, but did not succeed. He will say
nothing at this time, except to declare
that he will take the matter up with the
board of corrections and charities.
IP TO THE MAYOR
The Grand Jnry Gives His Favorites
Some Stingers.
The report of the grand jury submitted
to the court yesterday afternoon, makes
even more interesting reading, taken as a
whole, than as briefly summarized, and
bears down still more heavily on the ad
ministration.
The complete report is as follows:
"Many complaints having been made by
citizens of certain irregularities and cor
ruption in different departments of the
municipal corporation, and charges hav
ing been printed in the public press, we
deemed it our duty in justice to all parties
concerned to give the matter careful con
sideration, and to this end much time was
occupied in the taking of testimony.
"Relative to these charges we wish to
make the following report:
"We are satisfied that unbusinesslike
methods prevail in many departments
and the appointments made in several of
j them have not brought proper results,
this being particularly true throughout
the police department, where men have
been appointed who are either thoroughly
incompetent or grossly neglectful of their
duty.
"For some months prior to the conven
ing of this body, a gang of swindlers and
confidence men plied their calling about
the depots and in the principal streets
unmolested.
One for Kiugr.
: "Several places where 'skin :
: game' gambling devices were in :
: use, were operated under the :
: very eyes of the police by mem- :
: bers of the aforesaid gang, and :
: the leader of this gang has been :
: seen in apparently friendly in- :
: tercourse with the present chief :
: of detectives, besides being a :
: frequent visitor at the city hall. :
"The number of places where open
gambling was carried on had also in
creased to an alarming extent and gam
bling devices were in operation in more
than half of the saloons.
o o
"We have returned indict- :
ments against this class of of- :

"In the granting of saloon licenses we

Where Gardiner Get* It.
"Saloon licenses have been granted on
applications approved by the license in
spector, where the latter must have known
that the affidavit accompanying the appli
cation was rank perjury, and licenses have
been trafficked in by so-called transferring
from one individual to another and at
times from one location to another, all
being in direct conflict with the law, which
especially provides that they are 'not
transferable.'
"The ordinance requiring saloons t«
close *at a \ certain , hour at < night, 12
o'clock p. m., and to keep closed Sunday*,
is entirely ignored. We think this ordn
ance should be strictly enforced. Sr
: "The woeful ignorance of the :;,

: his duties, coupled with the eva- :
: sion of : his responsibilities, :
": ■ stamp him as a man wholly unfit :

.'; "Proper co-operation between the li
cense inspector and the license commit
tee of the city council would prevent the
Issuance of licenses in flagrant violation
of the ordinance, such as to places where
a saloon and theater are conducted in
the same building.

THE ARNOLD CASE
Henry B. Blackwell, Suffragist,
Talks of It.
HISS ARNOLD ONCE LIVED HERE
Mr. Blackwell Warn the Huiband of
the I.ate JLuoy
Stone.
No one perhaps among the advocates of
woman suffrage, except Miss Anthony, re
ceives and Is entitled to more esteem and
deference than Henry B. Blackwell of Bos
ton, the husband of the late Lucy Stone,
whose complete sympathy with her work
and co-operation with all of the efforts
of herself and her associates have had an
immeasurable influence in bringing the
suffrage movement to where it stands to
day. Mr. Blackwell's face, with its beau
tiful setting of snowy hair and beard, is
one of those significant and absorbingly
interesting human documents which it is
a privilege to be envied to have an oppor
tunity to behold.
Although one of the ablest debaters of
the country, either on the platfoj-m or in
the editorial sanctum, capable of dealing
the most telling blows, he is so sweet spir
ited and mild in manners as to take all
possible sting out of his keen thrusts. His
chief work ia the editing and publishing
of the Woman's Journal, founded by his
wife, which is the principal exponent of
the suffrage movement. Its weight Is
wholly out of proportion to its circulation,
for it is very widely quoted, even by the
opponents of suffrage, and commands a
wholesome respect from all by the able
way in which it presents the work, both
editorially and in a news way.
Associated with Mr. Blackwell is hie
daughter, the recording secretary of the
national association, whose clever illus
tration of the position she thought should
'be occupied by women, given in an address
in Chicago Monday, is being quoted ap
preciatively. She thought it time for the
women to cease taking the hen as their
type and insisting upon a state of mother
hood which, while devoted, is unable to
protect the chicks.
Presidential Suffrage.
Mr. Blackwell will make the report of
the standing committee on presidential
suffrage to-morrow morning and will be
heard frequently in debate. He reports a
movement on foot in Massachusetts among
the women taxpayers to secure municipal
suffrage for themselves as a matter of
Justice and protection of their property
interests. The agitation did not originate
with the suffrage association, but the
suffragists are heartily in favor of se
curing this right if possible. Massachu
setts, according to Mr. Blackwell, finds its
school suffrage law is limited In such a
■way as to have little importance except in
the cities. In Boston, although the vote
of women on school matters is only about
10,000, it is so influential in its non-parti
zan attitude that all candidates indorsed
by all of the women's organizations are
usually sure of election. The united vote
of the women is large enough to turn the
scale.
Miss Arnold of Minneapolis.
By request, Mr. Blackwell gave an ac
count of the school board agitation over
Miss Sarah VA. Arnold, formerly supervis
or of schools in Minneapolis- "The oppo
sition to Miss Arnold," said Mr. Blackwell,
'Mb wholly a personal and party move.
There is no one of the school authorities
who is more highly respected and es
teemed. Her work is entirely satisfactory,
but she, with the superintendent and one
other supervisor, favors the merit system
of choosing teachers and have sought to
put it in force. That does not suit" fhe
Ideas of a majority of our school board,
which wishes to use the schools for po
litical advantage. Last year this differ
ence of policy resulted in a refusal by a
majority of the school board to re-elect
these members of the teaching corps, but
the storm of Indignation through the press
was so overwhelming that the action was
reversed.
Unfortunately, that was not the end of
the matter, for this incident was followed
by a policy of flagging and other obnox
ious proceedings and a few weeks ago Miss
Arnold tendered her resignation. Again
the strong public protests more than out
weighted political considerations with the
board and Miss Arnold was requested just
before I came away to withdraw her resig
nation. The action was one that was great
ly regretted by the public."
The announcement yesterday of the ac
tion of the school board in removing all
restriction against marired women as
teachers gave great satisfaction to Mr.
Blackwell as an act of Justice which he had
always strenuously insisted upon.
