Cats In a Quandary.Minneapolis fe
lines are in somewhat of a o.utj.ndary to
day on account of an ordinance passed
last evening by the mock city council of
the Utopian Sovereigns. The measure is
entitled "an ordinance for the protection
of cats" but while it prescribes penalties
for maltreatment it also directs that no
"cat, puss, kitten or grimalkin", shall be
'harbored or shielded within 500 feet of any
institution of learning or place of public
worship. The debate and passage of the
measure was in regular form and afforded

GERMS'AWFULIQBK Typhoid Fever Is Showing |. j||avy
v, Iiicrease Over Lastjf^
','- \ . Year: H-: C,!
The Health Commissioner Again
Cautions People to Boil
City Water.
City water is held responsible for the
large increase of typhoid fever in Minne
apolis in the past two months. Tbat
the water has much to do with the
prevalence of the disease is indicated by
the fact that a majority of the cases have
developed on the South Side, which now
draws its water supply from the West
Side pumps, and these have been operat
ing most of the time since Jan. 1, pending
repairs at the Camden Place station.
The health department records show
that there have been five deaths from ty
phoid already this month. In March there
were fourteen deaths from typhoid, as
against eight for March and eight for
April a year ago. In 1900 there were no
deaths from typhoid in March and but
three in April.
The city hospital cared for eighteen
cases of typhoid fever during March and
nine so far this month. The attendants
say that the disease appears to be holding
its own at present. Ten cases were re
ported from St. Mary's hospital and the
other hospitals have all had their quota.
Investigation at the different hospitals
confirms the theory that xity water is re
sponsible in a majority of cases.
"Typhoid is certainly unusually pi'eva
lent at present, and it appears to be in
creasing," said Health Commissioner P:
M. Hall. "There is no doubt but that the
germs of the disease are lurking in the
city water, especially that which is pumped
from the West Side station. Until we can
be assured of a pure water supply, pur
only safeguard is to boil all city water.
The lack of convenient facilities for dis
posing of our garbage doubtless has some
thing to do with unsanitary conditions,."
"It's a good idea to boil city water, of
course," said Supervisor McConnell, of
the waterworks department, "but it's my
opinion that most of the typhoid fever in
this town is contracted by drinking well
water. The source of most of the wells in
our thickly populated districts is pol
luted, and yet people think they are
dodging disease germs by drinking it.
Several cases of typhoid have been re
ported from the vicinity of Chicago and
Ninth avenues. I bad Chemist Drew
test, the well water which the victims
had been using and he found that it was
full of typhoid germs."

Mrs. Mary Roll Dies at the Extreme
Age of One Hundred and Two
The funeral of Mrs. Mary Roll, whose
death occurred yesterday morning, took
place this afternoon from the home of
her son and daughter, Dr. and Mrs. S. C.
Hays, 3005 Bryant avenue S. Mrs. Roll
had the
an enth-eunusual
century for sh wa 10 2 years
old when she died. The celebration of the
hundredth anniversary of her birthday,
which took place at the Hays' home two
years agoH was an event long to be rer
'membered in the neighborhood.
Mrs. Roll was the daughter of a revolu
tionary soldier, George Westphall, and
was born in a log cabin in Dayton, Ohio.
She was the first white child born in
Dayton, and when that city celebrated its
centennial three years ago, she was in
vited to be its guest, as she was the only
one living who knew of the early days
from personal experience. Her life was
passed on the frontier settlements of
Ohio, Indiana, Illinois and Dakota. She
came to Minneapolis to make her home
with her daughter about three years ago.
About that time she had a fall which
crippled her for a time and made it im
possible for her to accept the Dayton
At the time of her hundredth birthday
Mrs. Roll took an active interest in pub
lic affairs. Her slender form was bowed
by age and her face bore the imprint of
time but her eyes shone with youthful
fire and her enthusiasm was not rivaled
by the younger members of the family.
She talked interestingly of the varied
events of her long life and recalled many
amusing stories of the war of 1812 in
which she and her family took part and
told them with a keen sense of humor
that made them charming. Shortly after
her arrival in Minneapolis she went with
a friend to church. The minister intro
duced her to the congregation from the
pulpit, and after the service she held a
reception and the people' crowded to shake
hands with a woman who counted her
years by the hundred.
"A hundred years is too long for a
woman to live," she said" at the time of
her birthday. "I don't expect to live
much longer and I don't want to. All
of my friends have gone and I want to
be with' them.
Her descendants number forty-eight'
grandchildren, ninety^great grandchildren,
and six great-great grandchildren, besides

New Approach to the University on
Fourteenth Avenue SE.
Work on the new bridge across the
Great Northern tracks at Fourteenth ave

proach to the university will be com
pleted in about two weeks. The bridge
is the same width as the street and will
make a noteworthy improvement'in the
university surroundings. It was designed
by A. M. Burch, -a graduate of the en
gineer's school, class of '95. The south
end of the bridge is opposite the main

which is also nearly completed, The walk

Hennepin Delegation Will Listen to
Arguments on the Music
Hall Plan.
" .-"- -
W. L. Harris Says the Armory Plan
Would Not Be a Feasible
Plans for the proposed auditorium and
music hall in the court of the city and
county building will be considered at a
meeting of all parties interested at the
rooms of the courthouse commission this
evening. At the meeting of the Hennepin
legislative delegation yesterday a com
mittee of five was apopinted o hear both
sides of the question and determine the
feasibility of the project.
Leading architects will tell why they
favor or oppose the scheme the court
house commissioners and originators of
the idea will give their reasons for sup
porting it aldermen will outline then
position -and still others will argue in
behalf of the erection of a building of
such proportions' as to accommodate a
large auditorium to be used as a conven
tion or music hall and an armory. /The
question has excited such general- inter-
est among all classes that a lively met
ing is expected and it is certain that all
interests will be ably represented.
Armory Plan-Impracticable.
W. L. Harris, asked his opinion of the
relative merits of the courthouse and the
armory combinations for an auditorium,
"I am not wedded to the courthouse
proposition if anything better develops, so
long as it is tangible, definite, and gives
us within a reasonable time the hall we
need so badly. If sufficient amount of
money were provided to give us a proper
ly arranged hall, in conjunction with the
proposed armory buildnig, it would be all
right, but I am not in favor of using the
same room for a drill hall and an assem
bly hall, for this reason: The level floor
necessitated for a drill hall is entirely
out of the question for a properly arranged
assembly hall. Moreover, the seats in
such a hall should be permanent, as well
as on an incline, and it would be an ever
lasting nuisance to have to tote the chairs
in arid out every time there was a de
mand for the hall. Then, again, the chairs
would necessarily be light, uncomfortable
"As-1 understand it the drill hall is in
use, except during the summer, five nights
a week, and all that the public could ex
.pect in the way of accommodation, would
be that occasfonal evening which would
not interfere with the drill. The require
ments of a dril hall necessitate a hall
built without posts, therefore it would be
impossible to put the drill hall in the base
ment, or the assembly hall on the second
floor, even if it is were desirable to do so.
The armory building is intended, as I un
derstand it, to be about 150 by 200 feet.
"Now I am not at all in favor of using
the drill hall for a public assembly hall ex
cept on occasions where we -need a hall
accommodating five or six thousand peo
ple, where they do not mind being crowd
ed, where people are willing to stand up if
necessary, and where the essentials'of a
modern auditorium are not demanded. I
think the armory would work in finely for
such gatherings, but it cannot be made a
proper incline together with a permanent
stage also with fixed seats, or at least
semi-detachable. I think the armory idea
would work in finely for such a case as I
have indicated, but for such events as
graduation exercises of our schools, con
ventions, city inaugurals, meetings to dis
icuss civic affairs, receptions to promin
ent visitors, lectures, etc., it is not admis
sable as a practicable proposition. If the
hall idea is combined with the armory, tt
should be practically a separate building,
and I do not believe it would be possible
to build such a building, properly equipped
for less than $250,000, and this without
any consideration of a fire-proof struc
"This is the mathematical problem that
confronts usif it is going to cost from
$100,000 to $120,000 to instal the proposed
hall in the courthouse, where there is no
foundations or walls to build, where the
lobby or entrance, the exits, waiting
rooms, toilet-rooms, coatrooms . are al
ready installed in a fire proof building,
with heating, lighting and ventilating
plants already to be connected, how much
will it cost to build a detached building
with anything like these advantages?"
Apollo Club Is the Latest Champion of
This Scheme.
The Apollo club adopted a resolution
last evening indorsing the plan for a mu
sic hall and auditorium in the court of
the city and county building. With the
musical sentiment of Minneapolis coming
out thus strongly in favor of the project,
its champions say there can be no such
word as "fail." The club has a member
ship of sixty-five representative citizens,
and is one of the strongest musical or
ganizations in the northwest. The club
earned $3,600 from its concerts during the
year, its expenses being within $50 of that

Receipt of 37,174.42 Crowns From
Minnesota for Famine Suffer
ers Is Acknowledged.
Senator L. O. Thorpe, chairman of the
committee appointed by Governor Van
Sant to collect funds for the relief of
the starving peasants in Finladn. Sweden
and Norway, has received a personal let
ter from Bishop J. M. Skaar of Thrond

the receipt of 37.174.72 crowns from the

has been distributed- among the gov
ernors or amtme^i of the northern dis
trict's of Norway, the bishop of Tromsoe

made with charity ancl honesty, and it has
been a labor of love on his part. The

A very enthusiastic meeting of the

was held at the borne of James T. Elwell,
945 Fourteenth avenue SE. The work of
the association for the year previous was
discussed, and it was shown that a great
improvement had been made in that part
of the city. For the present year it is
proposed to extend the boulevards by
narrowing the roadway on most of the
streets from 32 to 34 feet. The aldermen
will be asked to provide more curb and
gutter, better crossings, and that the via
duct crossings at Tenth and Como, and
Fifteenth avenue SE be whitewashed.

Oscar Green of .Great, ^alls, Mont., who

at police headquarters 'last' night and
reported that he had lost $500' in a three
card mbrite game on the Great Northern
Flyer yesterday afternoon. He explained
that the money was lost to two confidence
men but added that a third man seemed
connected with the swindlers. He fur
nished a careful description of the men,
but the police do not think they came to
the city.
Green became acquainted with the men
as the train was leaving Fargo yesterday
morning. One of them claimed to be
the son of the vice president of the First
National bank at Great Falls, and said he
had often heard his father speak of Green.
The three men traveled together until
they arrived within a few miles of An
oka, when they induced green to go into
the smoker and engage in a three-card
monte game. A few minutes later Green
had lost $500.
As the train was pulling into Anoka,
both men jumped from the train. Just
then a third man spoke to Green and told
him that he had better get off the train,
too. as the conductor had telegraphed
ahead to have all three men arrested for
gambling in the smoker. Green refused
to get off the train and the third man re
mained with him. When the train
reached Minneapolis this man tried to in
duce Green to go to St. Paul, but he re
fused and got off at the union station.

Final Reports on the Hennepin County
Canvass Will Be Received

row afternoon to wind up the affairs of
the committee and listen to reports from
Secretary Harry Swenson and Treasurer

of $125,000 for the famine sufferers, an
amount far in excess of that raised by the
people of any other state in the union..
The disbanding of the famine relief

Krier, one of the best known men in Owa

by some unknown person. The police and
county attorney are closely examining all
clues but so far results are not encourag
Krier was murdered on the railroad
track which he was traversing to reach
his house in the northern* part of the
town. He was shot but once, in the tem

watch and chain were not disturbed.
Robbery was clearly the motive.
Near the body were found two revolvers
and a pair of rubber shoes. One of the
revolvers had not been fired at all and
in the other but one chamber was empty.
There were marks In the soil indicating
that Krier tried to run from his assail
ant. There must have been a hand to
hand scuffle between the men as Krier'a
vest was disarranged and his collar and
tie were torn away.
Krier was about 45, and his family con
sisted of his wife and five children. He
was a saloonkeeper and the proprietor of
a billiard hall and bowling alley, and did
an extensive business. His place was

body. This negro cannot be found and
is thought to have left with the company

An Informal Dance Said to Have Been

His case was continued until to-morrow.
From the stories told by witnesses of the
affair, two girls employed in the house
and. nine boarders were the dancers. Sam
Dotlof, who plays a mouth organ, was
the musician. For a long time Dotlof
played the organ and the others danced.
At last Dotlof got tired. The girls en
