are a great many of our nationality who
find themselves alone in this country,
they have no knowledge of our laws
and the first thing they know
they get into trouble. In all
such cases they write to Col. Mattson
and he helps them out. I know that the
colonel seems rather brusque and un
social, but it is his way, and he treats
every one exactly alike— the poorest
man'stands the same show and is treated
with as much courtesy as the wealthiest.
His defeat was cruel, and it will be felt

It was Nelson or nobody with the five
Gorman county delegates to the Repub
lican convention. They were elected
and instructed for Knute Nelson, and
when he was defeated they quit taking
any part in the deliberations of the
body. They remained in the convention
throughout the afternoon, but when
called the invariable response was,
"Norman county declines to vote."
"The fact is that the Farmers' Alli
ance is so strong in Norman county
that the nomination of Nelson,"
remarked a delegate, "was the only sal
vation of the Republican organization
there. These delegates knew this and
they just threw up the sponge when
Nelson was laid on the shelf."
"Talk about the delegates in that con
vention representing the Republican
voters of the state," said a Southern
Minnesota man derisively yesterday,
"why it's absurd. Taue Lyon county,
for example. In the Republican county
convention held in that county, but live
towns were represented, and this hand
ful of delegates proceeded to choose a
Merriam delegation. Many other coun
ties were in a similar fix.
Although no call for a meeting has
yet been issued it is quite likely that
Chairman J. W. Lawrence, of the Demo

and at the West hotel, although this
has not been decided upon. The call
for the convention, with the apportion
ment of delegates to the different
counties, will be issued at this meeting.

The Liability of a Barkeeper

A Policeman and a Profes
sional Crook Exchange
The supreme court is still busily en
gaged in grinding out voluminous de
cisions, although this term of court
came to an end several days ago. Less
than a score remain to be tiled, how
ever, which fact is not at all displeasing
to the court reporters, clerks, and even
to some of the judges ou the bench.
Yesterday seven decisions were filed,
six of which affirmed and one reversed
the decisions and rulinss of the inferior
courts. .The syllabi follow:
Evidence and Witness.

There is no inflexible rule of law de
fining how much a witness must know
about property before he can be ad
mitted to testify to its value. It must
appear on the preliminary examination
that he has knowledge on the subject
sufficient to enable him to form an esti
mate of its value, and such as it may be
supposed the jury do not have. It is
theu for the court to determin the ques
tion of his competency; and if the evi
dence is^received the jury will determine
the right and wrong of it, in
view of all the circumstances, as cievel-
oped on the examination. Evidence of
certain witnesses upon the question of
damages and their competency in view
of their cross-examination considered.
One whose land on a street in front of
liis lot is appropriated by a railway
company and occupied by its track is
presumptively entitled to damages, in
addition to what he would suffer if the
railway stopped at the line of his lot
awd no part of the same were so appro
priated. The refusal to give the jury
certain instructions asked by the de
fendant which were correct in them
selves held not prejudicial in view of
the general charge.
Albert T. Jellisou, appellant, vs. Thomas
Halloran, respondent. Order affirmed.
Conceding that the mortgage fore
closure sale iv question in this case and
set up by the defendant was invalid,
the grantee of the purchaser at such
sale became the equitable assignee of
the mortgage. Evidence held sufficient
to support the finding of the trial court
that such grantee, immediately upon
his purchase of the premises, entered
into and continued in the actual, open
and exclusive possession thereof until
the expiration of the time to forclose
the mortgage and redeem the premises.
When such a purchaser takes and holds
possession of mortgaged premises in
good faith, the assent and acquiescence
of the mortgagor may be implied from
circumstances, such as the abandonment
of the premises by him and fchfl neglect
to arrest any claim thereto after notice,
express or implied, of the possession of
such purchaser. A party claiming to
be the owner of premises is chargeable
with notice of any equities or rights of
other parties as disclosed by the record
of his own title, and, after a reasonable
time, with actual notice of the open and
continuous possession of a mortgagee

to support the verdict. Held, also, that

Ida P. Sperry, respondent, vs. Sarah M.

Where in a notice of the expiration of
the time of redemption from a tax sale
the property in question is correctly
described as appearing on the tax
records of the county, and according to
the plat of the town or city or a well
known subdivision thereof, in which
the same is in fact situated, and which
plat has been duly recorded, and the
notice appears to be issued by
the auditor of the county in
which the property is situated, held a
sufficient description for the purposes
of such notice, though the county and
state do not further appear as a part of
the same. Where the property is bid in
by the s:jate and afterwards assigned to
a purchaser under General Statutes,
chapter 11, section 89, the sum paid
by such purchaser is "the amount
sold for." to be inserted in the
notice. It is not necessary
that the notice should state in whose
name the property is assessed, but it
must be directed to the party to whom
it is assessed when the notice is issued,
but it is not fatal to its validity that it
also contains the name of the persons to
whom it was assessed when the tax was
levied. Variance between the published
notice and the one served in this case
held immaterial. Published list held
sufficiently defiuite in respect to the
names of the owners of the delinquent
lands, and also the year for which the
taxes were delinquent. The affidavit of
publication also held sufficient to show
that the list was duly published in the
newspaper designated by the county
A Promissory Note.
Lebanon Savings Band, respondent, vs. T.
E. Penney, appellant. Order affirmed.
Where the defense set up in an an
swer to a complaint upon a promissory
note is that the note was made by the
defendant for the accommodation of
the payee, proof that it was executed
without any consideration is sufficient
to establish such defense and defeat a
recovery as between the original parties.
But evidence that the parties mutually
agreed in writing at the time of the ex
ecution of the note that the maker
should not personally be liable thereon,
but that it should be paid out of the
proceeds of other securities, is not ad
missible under the answer to prove that
the note was made for the accommoda
tion of the payee.

F. Hodges et al., appellants. Affirmed.

upon his refusal to deliver the same on
This liability is not affected by the
fact that the mortgage covered addi
tional property which did not come into
the hands of the purchaser, and has not
been applied on the mortgage debt, or
recovered by the mortgagor. A pre-ex
isting debt is sufficient consideration
for a chattel mortgage as between the
parties and their assigns. A mort
gage and note made directly to a party
who is the agent of the equitable owner
of the debt thereby secured may be en
forced in the name of the agent.
Edward Boehl, respondent, vs. The Chicago,
Milwaukee & St. Paul Itailway Company,
appellant. Order affirmed.
Carriers of live stock are relieved
from liability for injuries resulting
from the natural propensity of animals
to injure themselves or each other. The
law will not permit a carrier to limit
his liability for his own negligence by
contract, either as to the right or the
amount of the recovery. The burden
rests upon the owner of goods lost or
injured during transportation to make
out a prima facie case of negligence.
This may ordinal ily be done by proving
the delivery of the goods to the carrier
and the fact of the loss or damage hap
pening during transit; the burden will
then rest upon the carrier to show that
such loss or injury was not occasioned
by his negligence or default. And,
where specific acts of negligence are al
leged to have caused the injury, as the
"bumping" or collision of cars, the
owner of goods alleged to be injured
thereby must establish such facts by a
preponderance of evidence, and this un
explained will make out a prima facie
case of negligence, and it will then de
volve upon the carrier controlling the
asrencies and instrumentalities through
which the accident or injury occurred
to disprove his negligence by showing
that the same was occasioned without
BAD FOR WETHERN.
Startling Evidence Respecting the
111-Fated Sea Wing.
The examination of witnesses rela
tive to the disaster to the Sea Wing on
Lake Pepin is about completed. It is
now clearly apparent that the boat did
not have authority to carry an excursion
party with Capt. Wethern as mas
ter, and that the boat was
overcrowded. Ninety-eight bodies
have already been recovered and
identified and affidavits of 105 living
persons have been taken stating that
they were on the boat at the time of the
capsizing. This already brings the
total up to 205 passengers. The in
spectors have learned that still others
were on the Lo.it, and will see them and
secure their affidavits. Capt. H. C. Ful
ler, an experienced master who former
ly ran the Sea Wing, had license to
cony excursion parties to the number
of 175 persons, but this license was not
transferred to Capt. Wethern. On July
13, the time of the accident, the Sea
Wing, with Capt. Wethern in charge,
was by regulation only allowed to carry
twelve passengers. The facts de
veloped will doubtless militate
against the officers of the boat,
It will be remembered that the clerk
ana other officers of the boat stated that
the number of passengers did not ex
ceed 165. The clerk stated that there
were about 143 persons on board. In
spectors Knapp and Yeager have re
turned from a trip to Red Wing, Dia
mond Bluff, Lake City and Trenton,
where they went to take affidavits and
secure information. They found that
there still exists a strong feeling against
Capt. Wethern in those towns. It has
been learned that Mrs. Sparks wiJl test
ify that Mrs. Wetheru told her husband,
Capt. Wethern, that he ought to take
another barge with the steamer, but
that he objected to taking it because it
would require more fuel to run
the boat. Inspector Sloan says
that the Sea Wing had no
authority to take barges in tow at the
time of the disaster. The evidence will
be considered by a board composed of
J. D. Sloane, inspector of the district;
Capts. John Monaghan and Michael F.
Chalk, of Dulutu, and Capts. C. F. Yea
ger and George Knapp, of the local
board of Galena, 111, who will report the
matter to Supervising Inspector Gen
eral James A. Dumont. Mr. Duniont
will then take such action as the cir
cumstances warrant in regard to Capt.
Wethern and the crew of the Sea Wing.
Capt. Ritchie, of St. Paul, is engaged in
an effort to raise the wreck. It was
found that the hull is in good condition.
The boiler rolled off the boat and is now
covered by twenty feet ot water.
EMPTIED THEIR REVOLVERS,
Lively Experience of a Police Offi
cer With a Crook.
At about 9 o'clock last evening, at the
corner of Third street and Broadway,
an exciting shooting affray occurred,
which, fortunately or otherwise, re
sulted in no serious harm to auy one.
Officer Bob Gracly and a crook named
John Williams each emptied his re
volver at the other, but not a single
bullet found its mark.
Yesterday morning a man from Port
land, Or., named John B. Clopeck, got
drunk, and, falling into the hands of a
half-dozen crooks, was robbed of $80.
They were seen about the Manitoba
house with him. The case was reported
to the police, and Officer Grady was
sent by Sergeant Pottgeiser to find the
thieves. He found two in the Minnesota
Home, corner of East Third and Rosabel
streets. He arrested and took them to
the Manitoba house, one block down
Third street, for identification by
the bartender. After leaving there he
took them to the patrol box, and was
about to ring for the waeon when one
of the men drew a bulldog revolver,
and thrusting it almost into the patrol
man's face, fired. Officer Grady backed
oft and drew his revolver. Both men
fired at each other until their pistols
were empty. In the meantime prisoner
number two escaped. When all the
amunition was gone Williams turned
aud ran down Broadway to the
railroad tracks, but was captured as
he was diving under a car. He needed
some clubbing before he submitted to
arrest, and when the patrol wagon
came he was taken to the city hospital.
He was unhurt, except for some slight
cuts about the head. He was enrolled
on the tab at police headquarters on a
charge of assault with dangerous weap
ons. He will probably have to answer
to a charge of larceny also.
DROWNED AT PLAY.
The Father of Waters Gives Up
Last Thursday afternoon Joe Carsal,
of Shakopee, while out hunting, found
the body of a boy in the river on the
boom just below Fort Snelling. He tel
egraphed to Coroner Quinn, who had
the body brought to O'Halloran & Mur
phy's morgue on Sixth street. It was
much decomposed. It is supposed to
be the body of Amos Berglund, the
twelve-year-old sou of Berglund, who
lives on Twenty-ninth avenue, between
Twenty-sixth and Twenty-seventh
streets south, in Minneapolis. Last
Tuesday, while playing with some com
panions near the Short Line bridge, he
fell into the river and was drowned.
His parents have been sent for to ideu
tify and care for the body.

HEIRS AND EXECUTOR
Settle Tbeir Differences In the
Courts of Justice.
Judee Brill yesterday filed a decision
in the case of Alexander P. Browa
against William Alexander Brown and
Isabella Brown. It is held that Alex
ander P. Brown is entitled to recover
the value of forty lota which were
agreed to be conveyed to him, valued at
the time of the agreement at £39,500.
But this amount is to be increased or
diminished in accordance with the
facts to be ascertained ? after
an accounting is had as to the
receipts and expenditures of Alexan
der P. Brown. This sum will be a
mere drop in the bucket, as the<estate,
which enibraces sixtv-hve acres .in St.
Paul, is very valuable, probably
amounting to $1,000,000; and William
Alexander brown and his mother, Mns*.
Isabella Brown, who lives in Philadel
phia, may be well pleased that; their
property' has been preserved ami man
aged so that from having only a meager
amount of property, as they supposed a
few years ago, they find that thfey can
live In luxury. ! ;,«
William Brown Jr. died in 1870 at
Philadelphia, laaving Isabella Brown,
his widow, and William Alexander
Brown, a son of four years, by will,
three small houses in Philadelphia,
?18,000 in securities, and sixty-five acres
of land in Ramsey county, Minnesota.
Mrs. Brown refused to accept the pro
visions of the will, which gave her
one-third of the personal prop
erty and one-third of the ia
come of the real estate. Thomas Brown
and Alexander P. Brown, a brother of
the widow, were appointed executors
of the will. The first never took an
active part as executor, Alexander P.
Brown managing the property. By a
settlement in the Philadelphia orphans'
court in 1873 he was given control of
personal pioperty amounting to $9,
--072.00—0ne-third of which belonged to
Isabella Brown. He also took charge
of the St. Paul pioperty and managed
it until 1888. Mrs. Brown and her sou
had confidence in the brotherancl uncle,
Alexander P. Brown, and they seemed
to have no idea of the value of the St.
Paul property until about 1888. The
will was not admitted to probate in
Ramsey county until 1888. William
Alexander Brown became of age Oct.
23, 1880. On Aug. 11, 1887, he
and his mother agreed tc con
vey to Alexander P. Brown forty lots
of the St. Paul property, which was
agreed to be worth i3J,500, to pay him
for his services in managing the estate
and to pay expenses for taxes, improve
ments, etc. The amount of personal
property received in Philadelphia and
the receipts for rents and sale of pre
perty in St. Paul by Alexander P.
Brown was found to be nearly $29,000,
while his expenditures tor improve
ments, taxes, etc., figured up a large
sum of money. When Mrs. Isabella
Brown ana William Alexander Brown
learned that the property was very val
uable, aud that there had been large
receipts and expenditures, they refused
to convey the forty lots or to pay the
expenditures of Alexander P. Brown.
The latter brought this suit to recover
the value of the lots.
Judge Brill decided that Alexander
P. Brown is entitled to recover 839,500,
the value of the forty lots, but declined
to go iuto the question of the value of
nis services, as he had agreed to accept
that sum. Judge Brill further decided
that Alexander P. Brown shall be
charged interest on the several sums re
ceived by him, and be credited; with
proper expenditures for taxes, assess
ments, etc. An accounting was di
rected to be taken, and if it is found
that the difference between the receipts
with interest to be charged and the ex
penditures shall show that there is a
balance in favor of Alexander P..
Brown, then that sum shall be added to
the §39,500; but if it is found that the
balance is in favor of Mrs. Brown and
her son, then that balance shall be de^
ducted from the sum of $39,500.

A Breezy Racket in the Manitoba
At about the same time that the shoot
ing affray occurred between Officer
Grady aud John Williams last evening
another fight took place in the bar of
the Manitoba house. A switchman on
the Great Northern road, named W ood,
quarreled with John Herman, the bar
tender in the hotel, over a ring which
Wood said belonged to a friend of his,
and which the bartender said had been
pawned for drinks by Williams,
the thief who shot at Officer Grady.
From words they came to blows, aud
Wood received several nasty cuts on
top of the head with a beer class. They
were both taken to the central station,
where Wood's wounds were dressed,
and Herman was locked up on a charge

Milwaukee, Wis., July 25.— A young
swindler giving the name of Louis Bor
man, who had in his possession six fHledr
out checks of §75 each on the Merchriats'
National bank of St. Paul was arrested -
hereto-day, while boarding a St. Paul
train. He passed a forged check here.
Mr. and Mrs. Charles E. Doher, of
Chicago, who have been in St. Paul* for
the last few days attending the racesj
are jointly winners on the meeting so
far to the tune of $3,630. That is to
say, as husband and wife they are
equally entitled to share in the profits.
As a matter of fact, however, the money
has been won on Mra^Doner's judg
ment, and against that of her lord.
Thursday Mr. Doher backed the Avon
dale stable's entry to run one, two, and
told his wife about it. "Charlie,' 1 she
said, "a littie nigeer told me just how
that Semper Fidele was the best bred
ftfly on the ground, and I save him $10
to place lor me, and here's the ticket,
30 to 1." The yvise man smiled audibly
as he, in his mind's eye, saw Ida Pick
wick just under the wire and Letcher's
filly a mile away from home. Events
proved that the lady was rieht and his
judgment nowhere. The filly won the
race in a canter, Mrs. Doher pocketed
§300 and Mr. Doher sneaked off be
hind a fence to talk seriously with him
self. Earlier in the day the same lady
put a $20 bill of Lilian Lind
say and saw that three-year'
old walk in. Mr Doher had
played Macbeth 11. at three to five.
Another couple of hundred was clee
fully pocketed by his wife. Yesterday
the lady put all her winnings except
$50 on Rosemont for the last race, be
cause she had heard some oue say the
horse could run in the mud.' She cot
eieht to one, and Mr. Dober brought her
the ticket with the remark that she had
made an error this time. He had $10
on Al Farrow. Fifteen minutes later
