Owners of Property Around Proposed
=-" East Side Park Raise
Owners of property in the vicinity
Of the proposed East Side park are
beginning to worry over the probable
^action of the commission selected to
condemn the land They fear they
will be hit pretty hard for even if the
owners accept moderate prices, the
total valuation will still amount to
several thousand dollars all of which
'presumably must be assessed against
the property in the immediate vicin
ity. If the benefits can be assessed
against property at a considerable dis
r ,tance the assessments will be com-
% paratively light, but it ii believed that
an attempt to include property more
'than two blocks away will be resisted
, There is much public property in
- ithe immediate vicinity and this will
escape assessment Foi instance, there
is the East side high school, with a
"Whole block of property fronting the
$hew park the Pillsbury library, with
|half a block frontage on the park and
* *the Cataract engine house, also with
* 'considerable frontage
f Jt is argued by some that the assess
ments should be apportioned on pub

The Latter Charged with Malicious
ly Stating that Quist Had "Ap-
- proached" Him.
dust's Complaint Alleges that This
Statement Was Made Outside
Grand Jury Room.
Charles A. Quist, former foreman of
the September grand Jury, has com
menced a $10,000 damage suit for
slander against Joseph L. Kiichli
The suit grows out of Kiichli's
statement, alleged to have been made
both in and outside of the grand jury
room, tl\at he had been "approached"
by Forman Quist, who proposed to
draw off the municipal Investigation
upon the payment to him of $5,000.
Mr. Quist branded the statement as
an unmitigated and a malicious lie.
He courted Investigation by the grand
jury and swore vengeance upon its
perpetrator. The present action shows
Mr. Qulst's sincerity of purpose and
is said to be but the forerunner of
still more sensational developments.
The allegations of plaintiff, as re
cited in the complaint, follow
That at al ltimes hereinafter mentioned
plaintiff was the duly appointed acting
foreman of said grand jury.
That during said term of court said
grand jurv conducted an investigation of
the official conduct of certain persons,
some of whom had been and some of whom
were, at the time of said investigation,
members of the city council of the city
of Minneapolis, for the purpose of ascer
taining whether or not any of said persons
had asked for or recehed bribes while
members of said council
That this defendant a short time prior
to the date hereinafter mentioned had
beenn a member and president of the city
council of the city of Minneapolis
That on the 6th day of October A D
1903, at Minneapolis Minn , the defendant,
in a certain discourse which he then and
there had with one Michael Breslauer, in
the rpesen^e and hearing of said Breslauer
and otheis, falsely and maliciously spoke
and published of and concerning the plain
tiff the false, malicious and defamatory
words following, to-wit.
' Quist came to my office, shut the door
and came down with his hand and said
I have got the boys and I want you to
get me $5 000 You can get it from Cal
Goodrich and the electiic light company
I must have it or I will fix them '
And plaintiff alleges that in and by
said false malicious and defamatory
words defendant intended thereby to
charge and was understood to charge,
this plaintiff with the crime of asking this
defendant for a biibe of $5,000, with th
understanding that unless said sum of
$5 000 was procured by defendant and paid
over to plaintiff he plaintiff would as
foreman of said grand jury use his ef
forts to induce said grand jury to return
indictments against said persons
That all of said woids were false and
defamatorv That by reason of the speak
ing, publishing and uttering of said false
and malicious words, the said plaintlTI has
been damaged in his reputation in the
sum of $10 000
"Wherefore plaintiff demands judgment
against the defendant for the sum of $10 -

Minnesota butter makers to make butter

The contest is an educational one in
every respect, and with each entry will
come a blank of thirty-seven questions
which the competitor is expected to fill
out, inquiring as to his methods Then
if defects are found in the butter the

Park Board Improvement Committee
Thinks It Should Be
A special meeting of the park board's
committee on improvements was held this

impro\ing tne west river bank Now that
the city has obtained possession of the
whole bank from Franklin a\enue to Min

matters, hastened the calling of the meet

It Carried the Messrs. Holtz of Chi
cago to Dying Mother's
One hundred and forty-seven miles
in 142 minutes'
As far as the records show, this
burst of speed, made on the Omaha
road Saturday, has never been beaten
in the west The story leading up to
it is worth telling.
Saturday morning President Holtz
and his brother, of the Holtz Lum
ber company, of Chicago, reached Du
luth Early in the evening, and after
all Chicago trains had gone, the gen
tlemen received word that their aged
mother was dying and to come lom
at once. Then commenced some rush
preparations The Twilight Limited
arrived in Duluth at 9 45 p m. Its
big engine 251 and smoking car 405
were quickly uncoupled, and with the
Messrs Holtz aboard, headed tor Eau
Claire, there to connect with the 10 20
p m trrin out of Minneapolis, which
would land the gentlemen at home
Sunday noon.
The race began The engine and
car left Itasca, Wis., at 10 58 p. m ,
and at 12 midnight, or in sixty-two
minutes, had covered the sixty-six
miles to Spooner. E n route, the dis
tance between Solon Springs and Gor
don, 8 1 miles, was covered In even six
At Spooner five minutes were used
for watering and oiling and at 12 05
a. m the special left for Eau Claire,
eighty-one miles away, and which was
leached at 1 25 a. m., or in even eighty
minutes, the whble distance of 147
miles being covered in 142 minutes,
despite the many slow-downs for
bridges, crossings, etc.
Of course the special landed its two
passengers at Eau Claire in time for
the Chicago train, and No. 251 had
done its work William Prazer, a
veteran Omaha engineer, was on the
driver's box and his son, William Fra
zer, Jr., was the fireman. J P . Kelly
was conductor and R. P Slater brake
man. Naturally the road feels proud
of its track and equipment to make
such a run.

No Information of Insanity Has
Been Piled Against Him
Probate Judge Harvey Says' He'll
Not Hold the Man Much
No information has been filed by
the United States authorities against
Peter Elliott, and Judge Harvey inti
mated this morning that if such infoi -
mation were not speedily forthcoming
the man would be released.
It is thought that the complaint will
be made by United States Marshal
Grimshaw some time to-day and an
examination will then be held.
It is the general opinion of local of
ficials who have seen and talked with
Elliott that he is not insane and it is
predicted that he will not be sent to
St. Peter or that if he is he will be
kept there but a short time.
His conversation seems rational and
he has exhibited no signs of violence
since his arrest after the White House
incident at Washington.
Why H e Called on Teddy.
"I am now and always have been a
republican," he said this morning. "I
have no sympathy and never have
had any with socialists or anarchists.
All the talk about my being a social
ist are lies, pure and simple I am a
Tloosevelt man and when in Washing
ton wanted to see him to tell him how
well he was liked in this part of the
country. I wanted to shake hands
with him and have a little talk, the
same as any American citizen has the
right to. I did not try to force my
way into his presence. I simply
asked the guards and they refused
me, threw me out and then I wa& a
little mad and put up a fight.
"You had seen President Roosevelt
only the day before, hadn't you?"
"Yes. We were at the same church.
1 recognized him, and, going up to
him, held out my hand, sayings 'Pres
ident, shake hands with EJliott of
Minneapolis.' He shook hands with
me and said he was glad to Bee me.
That was one reason why I wanted
to see him again I thought if he
was glad to see me once, he would be
the second time."
"How did it happen that you went
"Well, I bought the revolver when
I thought I was coming back to Min
nesota and might need it for protec
tion if I went to work in the harvest
fields. I had quite a little money with
me and I didn't want to lose it, That
was the only mistake I made. If I
hadn't had the gun, everything would
have been all right"
Hasn't Been Examined.
"What kind of an examination did
they give you in Washington'
"Oh, they didn't examine me at all.
They didn't ask me any questions. They
simply stated what'I had done to the
jury, and I was found to be insane.
I hope and expect my case will be
treated with more consideration here
I do not, however, blame any one for
my present predicament It is sim
ply one of the happenings of hum an
life, and I suppose it will come out
all right"

One of the Board's $50 Birds Makes
a Meal for a Minneapol-
A few of the more fortunate resi
dents in the Lake of the Isles district
had a rare treat in the way of a goose
dinner yesteiday and it was at the ex
pense of tne park board
A few years ago a local railroad man
presented the board with two fine wild
geese Their wings were clipped, and
they were allowed the freedom of the
lake. They multiplid rapidly and this
summer there were over thirty geese
on the lake It has been the duty of
the park policemen stationed there to
clip the wings of the goslings. But
by mistake he overlooked one last
spring La3t week the attendant
rounded up all the geese for winter
except the undipped one, which avoid
ed capture for over three days With
his mates gone he became restless and
continually flew about the lake in
search of them
A resident on the lake shore sa\v a
chance, and early Saturday morning
when the mounted policeman was far
away, he took a shotgun and con
cealed himself in the underbrush He
had not waited long when the way
ward goose flew toward him and in a
short time Mr Goose was dressed and
stowed awav in the ice chest.
Invitations were sent out to the In
timate friends of the hunter, asking
them to Sunday dinner, a surprise be
ing promised
Every effort was made to keep the
matter quiet, but the story reached
members of the park board, who in
turn are trying to find out who shot
the goose The guests are saying
nothing, lest they also should become
implicated as accomplices.
The geese are valued at $50 each,
and members of the board say they
will not rest until they find out the
ambitious nimrod's name.

This year the sale does not equal
past records. One reason for this is
the weather. Few lineso f business

Minneapolis Work*
Under the illusion that life at the
Minneapolis workhouse is one of com
plete leisure and tranquillity, Millston
Hendrick, a robust Hebrew, came
into the municipal court this morn
ing and asked to be sent^to the Cam
den Place institution for the winter.
He says the world owes him a living
and he will get it one way or another
Hendnck's story is interesting He
was exiled from Russia because of a
religious disturbance in ' Moscow.
After working in the mines of Siberia
for seven years, he escaped and went
to London. From there a represen
tative of the Rothschilds sent him to
Canada to work on a large estate He
was led to believe he would be made
an overseer, but on his arrival was
put at hard manual labor.
He staid but a short time, and about
two weeks ago came to Minneapolis
and told Rabbi Silber that he had a
wife and family starving on the He
brew lands in Canada, and asked for
money to bring them here The rabbi
kept him at his home for ten days and
then secured him a position in Jacob
Ermansky's scrap iron works He
worked but two hours, and returned,
saying it was too hard for a man who
had already done his life's wr
other job at very light work was se
cured in Moses Noodleman's box fac
tory, but he refused to work. He says
the Jews should support him without
his doing an hour's work, on account
of his suffering in Siberia. If they re
fuse they are not Jews
Rabbi Silber says the local Jews are
willing to aid any man, well or sick,
but the well must take work when
After finding that he would have to
collect the living the world owes him,
Hendrick at last asked to become a
public charge His request was re
fused, but a charge of vagrancy may
be made and he will have a trial at
labor in the workhouse
Local Jews from Moscow say his
story of exile and sentence to Si
beria is true, but he has no family.
They say he is in perfect health, and
will do nothing for him until he shows
a disposition to work.

Safe-blowers turned another tnok
in Minneapolis early this morn
ing. The safe of the Ginter Grocery
company, 28 Sixth street S, was
wrecked and about $600 taken The
loss is fully covered by insurance, writ
ten by the Fred L. Gray Co.
From marks about the rear of the
building, it appears that the cracks
men first tried to force several win
dows with a jimmy Failing in this,
they smashed a pane of glass and
gained entrance by reaching an and
unfastening the window. The safe
was then drilled, loaded and blown,
being completely wrecked.
Tenants on the upper floor heard
the explosion, but did not identify it
as being in the building They say it
occurred about 4 30 a m
The job exhibits all the marks of
being done by novices. In view of this
fact, it appears that the safe-blowing
profession is more fully represented
here than has been supposed When
the branch postoffice safe on Univer
sity avenue SE was blown, ten days
ago, there was conclusive evidence to
show that the work was that of two
men arrested three days later in St.
Paul by Pmkerton men. These sus
pects have been taken to Wisconsin
for trial, so the Ginter job indicates
that several gangs are operating.
