SWINDLES
J. F. Moore was arrested yesterday
and held for the police of Grand Rap
ids, Minn., where he is wanted on sev
eral charges.
The warrant' on which he was -ar-
rested charges him with obtaining $280
from Joseph Andre on an alleged fake
real estate deal. The county attorney
at Grand Rapids says Moore repre
sented himself as a real estate man
and sold land to Andre that never ex
isted, making him pay part cash.
Some time ago Moore came to Min
neapolis and attempted to swing a deal
with a firm in the Chamber of Com
merce. left, as security, bonds
amounting to $15,000 on the News
Leader, a newspaper in Richmond, Va.
The bonds were good, but it was al
leged that they had been sto.len, and
they were turnd over to Police Super
intendent Doyle, who in turn, gave them
to the owners. Moore was not prose
cuted and would not tell where he
obtained the bonds.
After that trouble, Moore is said to
have represented himself thruout the
state as a member of the firm of Moore
Brothers, Brace & Co., real estate deal
ers in ,the Loan and Trust building.

W. Hield on Witness Stand'Admits^
Minnetonka Lines Do Not Answer
to Certain Specifications Under State
LawJohn land Quizzes the Witness.
W. Hield, general manager of the
street railway company, was on the
witness stand yesterday and today in
connection with the 'injunction pro
ceeding instituted by the council of the
village of Deephaven to restrain the
street railway from operating cars in
the village. He was subjected to a
rigid cross-examination by John Lind,
attorney for the village, who maintains
that the Minnetonka line is not a com
mon carrier of freight and does not
come within the state railroad laws.
Mr. Hield stated tha the Minne
tonka lines were not a part of the
Twin City Rapid Transit company's
holdings, but he admitted that trans
fers from city lines were good on Min
netonka electric trains. When asked
as to the cash balance which must
necessarily result from the acceptance
of transfers by an independent line,
Mr. Hield said he was unable to tes
tify in regard to this balance, and ad
mitted that he could not show books
indicating where the balance, if any,
went.
In an effort to prove his contention
that the Minnetonka lines are not com
mon carriers of freight, Mr. Lind asked
Mr. Hield to give instances where
freight had beerf carried to Lake Min
netonka. Mr. Hield said that coal had
been carried for Mr. Cargill and for
himself, and that freight had been car
ried for Mr. Hill. He did not know
that any rate had been charged Mr.
Hill or himself.
"Is Mr. Hill a resident?" asked Mr.
Lind.
"He is," replied Mr. Hield.
Is he a member of the village coun-
cil?" inquired the attorney for the
village, and Mr. Hield smilingly ad
mitted that he was.
"Would you carry freight for a Min
neapolis alderman?" asked Mr. Lind,
and here the afternoon session came to
an end.
At the session today Mr. Hield was
again on the stand and Mr. Lind
brought out the fact that no schedule
pf tariff rate's had ever been submitted
to the railroad and warehouse commis
sion, that the property of the com
pany had not been returned for taxa
tion under the state railway earninps
taxation law that no freight-rate
schedule had been posted by the com
pany, and'that the Lake Minnetonka
line had not been handled generally on
the basis that it was a common carrier
of freight.

WOULD DOST TREASURER
SUPERVISOR O TOWN O
SCHROBDER ASKS GOVERNOR TO
PROTECT PUBLIC CASH.
W. C. Smith, supervisor of tb^ town
of Sehroeder, Cook county, today filed
a complaint with Governor John A.
Johnson, charging malfeasance in'"office
against James H. Pinkertpn, the town
treasurer, in the alleged misappropria
tion, of $3,000 of town money.
The governor prepared today to ap
point a commissioner to take testimony,,
but on referring hte matter to the at
torney general, that official discovered
that the new code has not the provision
of the old law for' the payment by the
state of the cost of such investigations.
Temporarily, therefore, the taking of
evidence will be postponed until some
way is discovered' of getting around
the difficulty.
The complaint of Mr. Smith recites
that in the fall of 1906 the town of
Sehroeder borrowed $7,000 on bonds.
Part of this was deposited in the City
National bank of Duluth. I twas de
termined to move $3,000 of it to the
Cook CourPty State bank at Grand
Marais. Pinkerton refused advice to
take a check for the money, and drew1
the cash instead, put it into a satchel
and took boat for Grand Marais.
The complaint alleges that Pinkerton
remained on the bo'at until all his ac
quaintances had left, and then went
uptown, accompanied by his wife only,
and claims that after they left the
boat the satchel had been snatched
from them by robbers.
The complaint says no suspicious
characters were to be found in the
neighborhood, "and that if any rob
bery was committed it was done by
some party or parties in collusion with
Pinkerton. The boa*d of supervisor's
at once called upon the treasurer to re
sign his office, being fearful that he,
might defraud the town of the remain
der of the funds of the town in his
hands, but he has refused and still re
fuses to do so."

ATHLETIGDlFfERENCES
.ADJUSTED AT THE "D"
Differences as to the administration
Of student athletic'^ affairs have been ad
justed at the, university. There has
been some variance of opinion between
the members of the board of control
and the faculty committee as to the
auditing of bill's and affairs reached an
acute crisis a few days ago when Pres
ident John Gleason of the student
board requested the resignation of the
faculty representatives from the com
mittees which he had appointed.
Since that time, the-auditing of the
bills has caused no little dissension.
President Northrop today discussed the
affair a tlength with Gleason and the
conference resulted in reaching an
amicable settlement as to the future
conduct of affairs.
President Northrop holds that the
students should Have full charge of all
athletics, but that the faculty commit
tees should assist, in an advisory man
ner, and pass upon all audits.' This
plan will be followed, with the full
assent of the board of athletic control.

MANY ERRORS POUND
Corrections Made So Far Put Road
Amendment Farther Behind.
The state canvassing board is finding
many errors in the total vote returns
from the counties. In every case the
clerks are verifying the footings, and al
ready errors have been found in eleven
counties, going down the list as far as
Ramsey. The corrections made increase
the total vote by 306, making it 284.214.
The road amendment has 141,870 votes,
or 238 short of a majority. Other mis
takes will probably be found in checking
up the remaining twenty-five counties.
R. L. Kennedy, a St. Paul attorney, rep
resenting interests that are opposed to
the passage of the' tax amendment, is
watching the vote with a view to making
a contest, claiming that the, tax amend
ment is lost instead of the road amend

still threatening a contest, also.
