MUST HAVE R. R. TRACKS
ELEVATORS TO BECOME "PUBLIC"
Attorney General Douglas Qualifies
His Important Decision An
nounced Yesterday.
Atorney General Douglas says the
opinion classing all elevators "adjacent to
railroad rights of way as public elevators
has been misconstrued in one particular.
It does not apply to elevators which have
to -load on cars by wagon, but to those
which have trackage facilities. The theory
of the opinion is that spur tracks are to
all intents and purposes part of the right'
of way, even though. they are on private
land. The members of the railroad and
warehouse commission are out of the city
to-day. They have as yet taken no action
on the opinion. The course of the com
mission has been shaped by Judge Mills,
who has held the opinion that only ele
vators actually on railroad land were
public elevators.
The point will without question have
to be settled in the courts if the com
mission follows the atotrney general's
ruling. '

er Is Sentenced.
Frank Sumner, the young man who sys
tematically opened slot gas meters and
abstracted the 25 cent - pieces therefroc,
was brought before Judge Harrison this
morning and sentenced to the state re
formatory. He pleaded guilty at the time
of his arraignment. Sumner has been a
"had" prisoner at the county Jail and has
been locked in the dungeon much of the

progress of the usual religious services,
Sumner began to swear and curse. He
was immediately clapped into the dun

SEARCH FOR A PIANO
It Discloses Interesting: Business
Methods of Andreas Rohue.
Andreas Rohne' this morning, before
Judge Simpson, smilingly admitted that he
did business on very peculiar and: some
times profitless lines. He appeared in
court in reply to a writ calling for the
disclosure of j the > whereabout of a certain
piano. The piano, it seems, was the
property of the Merrill Piano Manufac
turing company, of Lawrence, Mass., and
had been shipped to Rohne upon a written
contract by which the latter was to pay
to them the sum of $241.85. In court to
day Rohne declared that he had sold the
piano to . a young man named " Day who
lived in Butte, Mont. The young man had
represented himself as very wealthy and
he had thought it perfectly.aafe to Intrust
the property to : him. He declared, how
ever, that be had not received a cent from
the Montana man in payment, and stuck to
this story. Judge Simpson entered a Judg
ment against Rohne for the amount, and
the attorney for the company stated that
the judgment would be used as foundation
for criminal proceedings to be commonced
against Rohne.

WOE FOR BOARDERS
Mercenary Landladies Push Up the
Price Per.
POTATOES COST MORE, YOU KNOW
A Cruel, but Inevitable Blow at the
• Defenseless Persons Who
Board. •
*.'*.'* •■ !.*■ ■
All boarders will look alike to the land
lady on Sept. 1. Beginning that day the
man who eats succulent hash . and coun
try butter in i the boarding houses of the
city, whether he occupy a room in the
fifth story rear or the first floor parlor
suite will be subject to a raise. .Board is
to icost more. . No concerted action has
been taken by landlords, but common con
sent has made the .date for an advance
in prices as next Sunday.
The move is not unexpected by the vic
tims of the increase in table board. The
papers have been full of the excessive
cost of potatoes, the scarcity of fruit, the
upward tendency of all that goes to make
up a good meal, and finally the elevation
of the choice, cuts from the fatted calf
so the lage boarding population of the
city have had an inkling of. the impending
trouble, and have registered no objections.
It would be no use anyway as.it is. a case
of "settle" or do your own cooking.
The restaurants of the city made slight
advances on orders about, a month ago as
a result of the high price of produce and
the determination of the boarding house
keepers to get a few more ducats out of
their guests is only in line with the gen
eral movement. .7 7. 7
The increase is : not so great as to be
fWt severely by the individual, but the
sum total is gratifying to the boarding
house keepers. One fashionable place has
tacked on 50 cents a week for table board
and also will charge for-_neals whi^r reg
ular boarders skip unless due \ notice is
given. : If Mr. Blank on his way. home re
ceives an invitation to lunch at another
hashery, he will have to'pay7 just the
same when he gets -home unless he steps
to the telephone and notifies his land
lady that he Is invited- out: * The average
advance is from $2 to $4 a month.
ALL AFTER THE CUP
Labor Unions Making Preparations
for the Big Parade.
FANCY UNIFORMS BEING MADE
All Are Reticent as to What They
Intend to "Flash" Upon
the Public.
Over fifty labor organizations will be
represented in the big parade which will
be , the principal feature In the local ob
servance of Labor Day next Monday. Each
union will make a special effort to secure
the loving-cup offered by the Palace
Clothing company for the union making
the best apearance. . If all the marshals
are to be relied upon, there will be sev
eral organizations entitled to ■ the prize,
and the task confronting the judges, For
mer Mayor Gray, Rev. J. S. Montgomery
and Alderman Powers, will be more diffi
cult than picking a winner at a baby show.
Prom reports received by Phil Carlin,
the chief marshal, the parade will surpass
all of its predecessors in the number of
men in line and likewise in general ; ap
pearance. Nearly all of the unions are
keeping their plans secret, and the more
elaborate the plan the less can be learned.
The typographical union has set aside a
percentage of all Its revenues since the
last parade and is after the prize in
earnest. ' J .....>...
The carpenters' union will doubtless
have the largest number of men in line;
it has pledged itself to supply 1,000 march
ers who will be clad almost entirely in
white. -»
A very striking attire has been adopted
by the painters. While their, garments
will be of a "civilized" cut their head
pieces will be "untrimmed" Porto Rican
hats, . which will make the painterfrom
the neck up—look like Fiji chiefs in state
dress. The hats are of red and white
straw with wide brims_flaring upward, the
ends of the straw being uncut.
There will probably be no floats, at
least the committee has heard -of none.
The stationary engineers, however, have
secured permission to run a traction en
gine behind which the engineers will
march in blue overalls and black cap* It
is said that the distinguishing marks of
the bookbinders will be red suspenders
and red ties. The plumbers are keeping
very quiet about their uniforms. ; They
want to see what the printers have on
before they begin to boast.
A trim appearance will he made by the
electrical workers in light trousers, a"_rk
shirts, red ties and white fedora hats.
. In order to assure a - large j attendance
the brewery workers have adopted a rule
fining every member who "absents himself
from the parade $3. 7.',,-.'•: ' f ' --.i c-3.'.'
The team ; owners say r that no matter
how the other unions -string out the team
owners will distance any of them for their
division will be two .miles long with
dump carts, dirt wagons, sprinkling carts
and miscellaneous vehicles.
The chief marshal has called a meeting
for all his aides for to-morrrow evening

medical aid was* promptly secured, he died

ladles seated in the front startled the
other passengers by piercing screams.
They could * not speak, but pointed to the
vestibule, where the motorman was seen
on the floor. Conductor Thiessen, as
sisted by Theodore L. Hays and others,
ran to his assistance. He presented a

The conductor managed to get the car up
the hill and "stopped it ln front of the

HIS COIN AND LIFE
John Earnest of Hudson, Wis.,
Nearly Lost Both.
TWO WOMEN ARE UNDER ARREST
They Admit Having Separated Earn
est From His Money— Their
Male Accomplice Wanted.
,If the story he told the police la
trustworthy, John Earnest of Hudson,
Wis., who came to Minneapolis yesterday
on business, was the victim of robbery
and attempted murder last night. Two
women, habitues of lower town resorts,
were arrested this morning, and at the
Central station they confessed complicity
in the robbery and gave up ■ part of the
stolen money. Detectives say they will
have their male confederate in custody
before night. 7 < ... „ ■•'if "'A
v Earnest fell in with a stranger in a
Hennepin avenu* saloon last evening.
The latter, with a show of good fellow
ship and a liberal purchase of drinks,
soon ingratiated himself in the visitor's
favor. < Later, Earnest says, his newly
made acquaintance lured him to a room
In a Second avenue S lodging-house.
near the corner o/ Fourth street, where
his • friend . and two women robed him of
$40. They remained in the ' room until
late, drinking and carousing, until
Earnest fell asleep. The robbers, accord
ing to the victim, then tried to make way
with -him. They closed the . windows,
turned on the gas, shut the door and left
him to die.' ;: -: '
About 1:30 a. m. the proprietress of the
lodging-house smelled the gas and broke
into the room. She threw open the win
dows and turned off the Jet, and after the
room was partially cleared of the deadly
odor, attempted to arouse the sleeper,
but was unable to do so. > v
Earnest Finds Himself.
He had not been in . the room long
enough to become. asphyxiated. About
4:30 a. m. he awoke, but was unable to
grips in each [ hand and worked his way
through the crowd to the waiting room
while many of his acquaintances looked
on in amusement. After depositing the
luggage in one of the seats the governor
was about to bow himself away when one
of the ladies asked who it was they were
indebted to for such a kind service.
"The governor of the state, madam,"
replied the governor. "I am pleased to be
given the opportunity to redeem the west
ern man in your estimation. You see out
here the '. men are busy earning their liv
ing and in • the general hustle they occa
sionally stepson their neighbor's toes."
7 The ; governor was almost out of the
building before the ladies had recovered
breath. The older one of the two finally
said: > „-7-7
"Gracious, Mary, but we would be a
long time in New York before we would
have our luggage carried by the governor
of the state."
close at hand, said that Alderman Nelson
was informed of the fact that the charge
would be $2 per day, for he himself had
given Nelson; the ; information. Moreover,
he then told Nelson, that if he did not ap
prove of that. figure the department could
look somewhere else for a horse. The
eleventh ward man said it ■ was no such
thing. . * The ; first warder then came back
harder than ever, and at the next ex
change jumped out of bis chair and stalked
over, in front ' of the other in Imitation af
a man ready for business. Alderman Nel
son evidently took it that way, for he in
turn got out of hie seat with alacrity, and
for a moment the two big men stood con
fronting each other. ,
The other '^ members of the committee
arose at this juncture and the belligerent
dads were Induced to take their corners.
The committee then proceeded to 0. K. the
bill. VJ.t_«_Wfr*«*

move for some time, and it was not un
til after 5 o'clock that he got down to the
police station to tell his story. The offi
cers procured a good description of the
man and women, and in a few hours had
the women under arrest. One of the
women disclaims any connection with
tenderloin places, and says she lives with
her. parents in North Minneapolis. She
had met her companion, she said, only
the night before, and had been introduced
by her to become a party to the crime.
The girls had about $30 with them when
arrested.
