Court Characterizes Work Prisoner
as Fraud of Worst Type and One Call-
ing for Drastic PunishmentSen-
tence I Lighter Because of Culprit's
Health and Infant Child.
Because he defrauded the farmers of
Minnesota and the northwest to the ex
tent of $11,000, Walter C. Cunningham
of the North American Land company,
must pay a fine of $100 and spend eight
months in the Hennepin county jail.
This was the sentence pronounced late
yesterday by Judge Page Morris of the
United States district court.
Cunningham was indicted on a, charge
of using the mails with intent to de
fraud. His scheme, as revealed at the
trial which lasted eight days, was as
follows: Thru advertisements in news*
papers and farm periodicals he repre
sented that the Nftrth American Land
company was a big concern having 500
agents and many thousand acres of land
to sell.
Working of Scheme.
listing their lands with him farm
ers could be sure of having them wide
ly advertised and promptly sold, provid
ing they paid him a listing fee of $5.
Another part of the scheme was to in
sert a "farm wanted" advertisement
and, upon receiving a reply, write that
he had several customers who were.anx
ious to buy a farm as described, but
that the farmer must deposit the $5
listing fee as a token of good faith and
a guarantee that the land was as rep
resented. The government alleged and
proved to the jury, that Cunningham
had no intention of selling the lands
listed with him and was interested sole
ly in the fee, which he converted to his
own use.
Judge Denounces Offense.
In sentencing Cunningham, Judge
Morris denounced his scheme as a fraud
of the worst type and declared that the
use of the mails in its furtherance was
an' offense which called for. the most
drastic punishment. This scathing ar
raignment was continued for a quarter
of an hour. Then the judge, referring
to Cunningham's statement that he was
afflicted with tuberculosis and had an
infant child, announced that he did not
wish to endanger his life" or deprive the
child of his support, and sentenced him
to eight months imprisonment in jail
and. a fine of $100. The maximum al
lowed by the federal statutes is eigh
teen months, at hard labor, and a fine
of $500.
Cunningham was visibly affected at
the sentence which would confine him
for two-thirds of a year and his aged
father, John C. Cunningham of St. Paul,
was even more distressed. Cunning
ham's two sisters and sister-in-law,
who had been constant attendants thru
the trial, were not there to hear sen
tence pronounced.

Negotiations of Tw Years En in Pur-
chase of Independent Suburban Line
Which Will Made Part of Minne-
apolis & St. Paul Suburban System
History of Road.
The Twin City Rapid Transit com
pany is about to take over the Minne
apolis Land & Investment company
trolley line to Hopkins, popularly
known as the "Walker" line. I will
become part of the Minneapolis & St
Paul Suburban company line.
Under the terms of the contract be
tween the "Walker line and the street
railway company the latter had the
privilege of'acquiring the property of
the former. Negotiations have been
on for nearly two years. The street
railway company has its new Minneton
ka line completed and is now ready to
take over the Walker line.
Inasmuch as the Walker line seems,
on the map, the most direct -route tOi
Hopkins and Deephaven, persons, who
are in a position to know say tha# it'
will eventually become :the routf wnich
the DeepTiaven cars will fpllo^-.
r' I
this way St. Louis Park will havevserv
ice, and the main line to the lake from
Twenty-ninth street to Hopkins would
be relieved of a large amount of traffic.
This would be especially pleasing to
the patrons of the local streetcar Tines
as far as the Harriet loop.
To make .the "Walker line part of the
route to Deephaven would be a simple
matter. I would be necessary only!
to extend the tracks from the terminusj
in Hopkins, two or three blocks to Hop
kin's junction, where the old Milwau
kee line to Deephaven, now leased by.
the street railway company, begins.
The transfer to the Twin City com
pany will be thru purchase, which will
carry the right of way and the equip
ment of the Walker line.
The Minneapolis Land & Investment
company built its street car line from
Twenty-ninth street and .Hennepin ave-.
nue to St. Louis Park about twelve
years ago to help boom the .village,
which had a promising future as a
manufacturing suburb. I time the
line was etxended to Hopkins, making
a total length of twelve miles.

Power Development in the Mississippi
Above Minneapolis Will Make It Pos
sible for Northern Lines to Use Elec
tric Locomotives on the. Terminal

divisions of the. leading railroads en
tering Minneapolis are a sufficiently
strong probability to be, one of the fac
tors in an investment of $6,000,000 .t
harness the Mississippi river above ..the
city. ,j
While no definite negotiation's have'
been entered in'ifo^the promoters of the
Mississippi Electric Power company re
gard it.. aa'.lifTOabijJ that .they will
eventually haye'sjw .^market for their
.power, .if at .tba^'tim'e-.theyi have any-,
''.juiq'' to dispose of.+ Logically, sucn
ia development would come first on the
iGreat Northern and the Northern Pa
cific, whose lines are close to tfio.jriver
for many miles before reaching
neapolis, reducing the transmission
problem to its simplest terms.
In the east it has been'demonstrated'
by leading roads that on congested di
visions the electric engine is the best'
and most economical in every way The
steam locomotive-, is a waster' of fuel'
and in view of the constantly dimin
ishing supply and increased cost, the
fuel problem must be met. Where,
waterpower is not available it has been:
found cheaper tor have a central mod
ern steam plant and to operate at con
gested points with electricity.
It is said that within a year every.
train into -New" York city will be op*'
erated by electricity.. The New York,
New Haven & Hartford has ordered
sufficient electrical engine' equipment
to handle its local business on the New
York-Stamford division, and plans the
complete electrifying of its New York
Boston line.
The Mississippi River Electric Power
company is an organization created by
C. C. Cokefair, of Duluth and his asso
ciates in the Great Northern Develop
ment company, and was recently incor
porated under the'Minnesota law. Tho
details of its plans are not announced
as yet it is announced that the project
is already financed. The company plans'
with, its three power sites a total de
velopment of 60,000 horsepower at an
expenditure of '$6,000,000, or $100'a
horsepower. The company has three
sites. The Minnesota Power & Trolley
company, undertaken first "by Minne
apolis interests, at Otsego another at
Monticello, and a third at Clearwater,
the distance between Otsego and Clear
water-being^ a" little" over twenty miles.
A total available head of 102 feet, or
more than twice the head at St. An
thony falls, is-possible. There is a to
tal pondage of eight square miles, and
all three properties are within fifty
miles by direct line from Minneapolis.

,It cost' the city, of Minneapolis 30
cents a vote to-hold the recent primary
flection. With 39,000 vof es cast the
.expense tp the city will be $11,800. The
exact, figures on, election expenses will
-not be computed until after the gener
al election, but'f*6in figures given out
in the offices of .the city treasurer and
icity clerk,, the approximate expense of
the''primary election can be reckoned.
The biggest, item of, election expense
Iwas the salary list for judges, clerks,
and" constables. These officers in-the
1*44' precincts of the thirteen wards of
the city received $7,635.10 from the
city treasury The men Who counted
the ballots in the third ward carried off
the greatest amount, $987 75. I the
smallest ward in the city,-the thir'
teenth, election expensese were natur
ally the lightest. The bills turned in by
the officiate, in that ward amounted to
$278.25. The pudges and clerks in the
Second precinct of the thirteenth ward,
however, took the precinct record. A
inspection of the accounts approved by
the council shows that three judges and
three clerks in that precinct received
more money for their services than the
judges and clerks in any other precinct
of the city. Each one of the ballot offi
cials in that precinct received $16.35.
I took them fifty-seven hours to. regis-,
ter and count the ballots in their pre-'
Voting Machines Save Money.
Judges and clerks in the eighth pre
cinct of the first ward and the tenth
precinct of the third received the% least
money for their services. Three judges
and three clerks in each of those pre
cincts worked eighteen hours and. re
ceived $4.65 apiece for their services.
Of the eighteen hours fifteen were
spent while the votes were being re
ceived and three in counting the bal
lots There was an election machine in
those precincts and the records show
that in every precinct where machines
were installed the salaries paid to the
pudges and clerks of election were less
than in other precincts of the wards.
Other Expenses.
Altho the salary list is the greatest
item of primary expenese, there were
other expenses connected with the elec
tion. The printing of the ballots cost
$1,500 and the expense of carrying the
ballot boxes to and from the election
booths, with the expense of supolies
furnished in each precinct, cost approx
imately $10 a precint. Twenty separ
ate items of supplies are enumerated on
the list used in stocking the precincts.
The list includes pencils, black and red
ink, pins, sealing wax, maps, blotters,
rule, sailneedles, copies of the election
law, tacks, tally sheets, indelible pen
cils, flags and other materials.
Another item of expense connected
with the holding of the primary elec
tion was the rent paid^ for polling
places. For the use of balloting places
during the two days of registration and
the two days of the primary and gener
al election' $25 is paid. I twen ty of
the precincts, where fire engine houses
are made polling places there is no ex
pense for rent, but in other places own-'
ers of the buildings receive rental.
