Provision Allowing Judge to Excuse
Jurors From South of Fourteenth
Parallel Dropped.
Representative Also Made Fight
Against Killing of Normal
School Report.
Wat Amended to Not Be Contrary to
the Elwell ActCodifies Exist
ing Laws.
Changing the provision which
called for a jury taken from north
the fourteenth parallel and pro
viding that the expenses of the court
reporter shall be paid for special
terms in Baudette^ D. P. O'Neill in
troduced a bill amending the old
Baudette law and providing for two
general terms of district court to be
held in Baudette and Spooner each
year. The bill as drafted by attorn
eys from the north end of the coun
ty provided that the judge could ex
cuse jurors drawn from south of the
fourteenth parallel.
The bill was referred to the judic
iary committee of the house and will
be reported out after a public hear
ing has been held. There appears to
some objection to the bill as -ft
now stands since it calls for two gen
eral terms of court whereas Clear
water county, which has been
ganized for ten years, has but one
term. It is said that the bill was
drafted for the purpose of affecting
existing legislation in the Canadian
Northern fire cases.
D. P. O'Neill rescued the general
normal school bill from extinction
Wednesday afternoon when he ask
ed the house to reconsider a motion
passed not to receive the bill from
the normal school committee. The
house reconsidered and the bill was
placed on general orders. It will
come up tor debate sometime within
(.he next two weeks.
Over the phone this morning, Mr.
O'Neill stated that he believed the
bill could be pushed through if Cass
Lake, Bemidji and Thief River Falls
will unite on it. The text is as fol

St. Paul, Feb. 28.A verdict for
$6,300 awarded to William Ellenbeck
in the Hennepin couhty^ district
court against the CrookstoS Lumber
company^ was upheld in the supreme
court today.
Ellenbeck was a swamper*'em
played- by the company in their
camps near Kelliher, Beltrami coun
ty/jabout three years ago.f^He sued
to recover 125,000 for the loss of
^his" right leg which was amputated
when, a tree near the,camp fell on
rThe lumber company appealed to
t|e supreme court with the defense
that it was not liable for the failure
ofr'the foreman to notify Ellenbeck
&>-$ out of the way of falling trees.
W The supreme court rules that it
becomes the absolute obligation on
the part of the employer to sea that
takes every precaution to protect his
fellow, servants.
