Young Men Cut Off With a Shil

Are Given to Horse Racing.
Stewart G. Culbcrtson and A. Percy
Culbertbon, of this city, have begun an
action in the circuit court at New Al
bany, lnd., to test the validity of the
will of + heir late grandfather, W. S.
Culbertson, who left an estate valued at
§3,000,000, part of which is located in
St. Paul. The two young men named
are sons of the late W. A. Culbertson. of
this city. Their grandfather cut them
off with a shilling, figuratively speak
ing, as he bequeathed them only II each.
It is slated that the will recites the rea
son for such a meager share iv the es
tate is that the young men were given
lo r.orse racing. It is denied that the
young men were guilty of that excess,
or were given to any sportive proclivi
ties. While residing In St. Paul they
have been respected. Their motner still
lives iv this city.

On Monday night Fred Steven ton,
who lives at 447 Fort street, was held
up, or rather knocked down, by high
waymen on Wabasha street near the
capitol. The chief of detectives
endeavored to hush the matter up by
saying it was not a case of highway
robbery, but a drunken fight. Mr. Ste
ven ton, who was seen«iast night, denied
this statement and cave his version of
the affair, which was 'corroborated by
two companions, named Priestly aud
Taylor, who were with him at the'time.
Tne thugs, who had stolen a horse and
buggy from in front of a hall on Lafond
street drove up to the curl) as the three
men mentioned were passing up Wa
basha street. One of them asked Mr.
Taylor what time it was, and as Taylor
took out his watch tha thief made: a
2rab for it, but only succeeded in break
ins the chain. The fellows drove off,
but a moment afterward returned,
and both jumped from the
buggy. While one of them held
Priestly and Taylor with a revolver
the other assaulted Steventon. and,
after knocking him down, took his
watch. The highwaymen then iumped
in the buggy and drove oft".
Steventon made such a desperate re
sistance that the tluig broke tlie watch,
and left balf ot the outside case on t'.ie
ground. The part of the watch the
felon did not get Mr. Stevenion said
had been taken by the detectives to b«
used a clue in apprehending the robbers.

Old Soldiers Meet and Issue a
Strong Address.
At the meeting of the Ramsey County
ex-Union Soldiers and Sailors' Demo
cratic club last evening, tiie member
ship was increased to ninety-nine. The
executive committee was completed and
vice presidents elected, one for each
ward, as follows: George Dempsey,

Holcoinb, CoL William Crooks, A. Mc-
Arthur, Gen. P. W. Johnson, Joseph
Rouleau, A. N. Pelletier, O. C. llough
ton, E. li. Taylor. A declaration of the
purposes of the club was adopted as
follows: «
lloiilin.tr that ail questions which led to the
War of the Kebelhou, or resulted directly
therefrom, have long siuce been settled and
are matters of history, we declare it the duty
of ex-Union soldiers, as of all other citizens.
to govern their part;- fealty by the views
they hold upon the questions of tiie day as
declared aud ad\ooated by the political
parties respectively. Thus holding aud be
lieving that the policy of the Democratic
party of today aims to enlarge nud more
lirmly establish the liberties of Uie
cituen. while the Republican party tends
to lessen aud endanger tiie same, p.nu believ
-ing, further, thut Republican protection is a
fraud, and a robbery of the many for the uen
e£H of the few, thus not only d*estroy:iig the
prosperity of the country, but aiding in the
creation of a moneyed oligarchy, we, surviv
ors ot the, £reat struggle of the'wtirof 1861-5
lor the preservation and perpetuity of the
Union, leclare our belief that true patriot
ism demands the defeat of the Republican
party and the success of the Democratic
pprty, to the accomplishment of which we
hereby pledge ourselves, and to aid iv which
we earnestly urge the co-operatiou of our
former comrades In arms.
An address to the public was also
adopted, and a committee named to se
cure its publication.
Distinguished Visiting Physicians
Liecturr After Being Banqueted.
Prof. Osier, of Johns Hopkins; Prof.
Fenn, of Rush medical college, and
Prof. Ferguson, of the Uni verity of
Manitoba, were given a delightful ban
quet at, the Minnesota club last evening
by the Minnesota Academy of Med
icine. After the banquet the company
adjourned to the capitol, where a public
meeting of the academy .was held. A
large number of physicians were pres
ent. Prof. Osier read a most interest
ing paper, entitled '"Medical Education
in the Unired States." The assertion is
often made that American doctors are
not as thoroughly grounded in their
profession as European; that they are
more superficial, and more needy
for financial train. It is undoubt
edly true that America is the
greatest market for patent medicines
and cure-alls, and there are probably
more quacks here than in any other
country. But to say that the science of
medicine in America is not up to the
standard of the highest grade in the
world is not claimed even by Europe
ans. There are as close and careful
students and as skillful physicians In
America as are to be found in any coun
try. Yet much i 8 t be done here by
way ot weeding out quacks and travel
ing mountebanks. State after state is
falling: into line, enacting laws which
tend to purify and elevate the medical
standard. Minnesota probably stands
among the foremost states in the matter
of rigorous I gal measures. These
points and many others were touched
upon by the able Instructor. It was a
rare treat for the audience of physi
cians. Addresses were delivered by
many oilier physicians, including the
two other guests of the evening.
The State Insane Asylums AVill De
mand Large Appropriations.
The trustees of the Minnesota hos
pitals for the insane formulated their
seventh biennial report to the governor
yesterday at a meeting held at the Mer
chants'. The report relates that the St.
Peter and the Rochester hospitals have
been overcrowded during the • whole
biennial period. Although the legis
lature had provided for an extension at
the St. Peter hospital, which will. give
more dormitory room, the institution
has been so crowded that it was impos
sible to make the improvement until
the transfer of. patients ; to the Fergus'
Falls hospital in July, and with this
improvement made the utmost capacity
of the hospital will be 1,000 patients,
and the Rochester hospital cannot care
fcr over 1.000, while the Fergus Falls
hospital .has : only the capacity of ' 285
patients.'.'. '■■'■ fv ".^ *-{•»'>■* '
This makes the : utmost capacity of
the three hospitals 2,285, with no chance
for increased accommodations save at
Fergus Falls, and there were -actually
present at the close of the biennial period
£.£&. with. »v Hujusualiy Jauc« ju u uil)er
out on parade. The increase has b??n
about S per cent each year, and the
board concludes that with the natural
increase of the population of the state,
it cannot assume that there will be a
less increase the coining biennial period.
This per cent added would give iv 1893
2,417, in 1894 2,610, and July 31, 1895.
2,819. Consequently provision must
be made for this number of pa
tients. This will require appropriations
amounting to $1(54,700, and this does not
include the improvements at the Roches
ter hospital.
The report then proceeds to state that
all the butldingserected are strictly fire
proof. There is immediate need of elec
trical and mechanical instruments for
the care of patients to cost $1,500 tor
each hospital.
Considerable space is devoted to the
description of the training school for
nurses. One cl ss is held at St. Peter
and one at Rochester.
Dr. C. K. Bartlett. superintendent of
the St. Peter hospital, and Dr. A. P.
Williamson, superintendent of the Fer
gus Falls institution, have resigned and
the vacancies have oniy been filled tem
porarily. Dr. 11. A. Tomhnson has
been designated acting superintendent
at St. Peter.
Rosolutions of commendation for the
efficient and faithful services of these
retiring superintendents, expressing
the sincere rwjrrets of the board, were
adopted and bids were opened for fin
ishing the construction of the Fergus
Falls building now under way. The bids
were :
Butler Bros, St. Paul, 111,850; W. P.
&yan, St. Paul, 113,450; H. Downs
li Son, Minneapolis, ¥13,800.

An Impartant Decision in a Mort
gage Case by the Supreme
A Mortgage Covering Three Lots,
but Dividing the Amount He
quires Three Actions.
The supreme court handed do - ,vn two
decisions yesterdaj, one of which is of
more than usual importance. The syl
labi follow:
E. A. Child, appellant, vs. Wesley J .
Morgan et al.. respondents.
Syllabus— A mortgage covering three
lots of land was given to secure the
payment of a note of $700. The con
dition of defeasance was that the mort
gagor should pay that sum. "said $7UO to
be a specified lien of $233.33 on cash of
the above-described iots, raleasable at
any time by the payment of said amount
of $233.33, together with accrued inter
Held that this was in effect a separate
mortgage of $233.33 upon each lot sep
arately. Hence a notice of lort-closure
sale, under the power, stating only tne
amount of the en ire debt claimed to be
due, as the mortgage Had been fur the
entire debt, without apportionment was
invalid, and the s;«k; or the three tots to
gether for a gross sum was also iti valid,
and the foreclosure was ineitVot.ua!.
One in possession of real estate may
maintain an action to determine ad
verse claims (under the statute; without
showing title in himself.:,
The findings of the court as to the
facts of a case upon which no judgment
nas been entered (although judgment
was directed to be entered) do not con
stitute evidence in another action of
the facts so l ou mi. Judgment affirmed
as to the defendants Edward F. and
Martin Pulver and reversed as to other
i^ay Alice Benning, respondent, vs.
John A. Sabla, appellant.
Syllabus— Firs; -Upon an examina
tion md consideration of thd evidence
in this case, it is held that the same
did not justify o:i;- isi the limlings of
fact of the court below. Held fnrtaer,
t'jat it conclusively appears from all of
the evidence ttiat the transaction in
volving an assignment of v sheriff's cer
tificate of execution sale froqi \V. to A.,
referred to in 43 Minn., 43L, was in legal
effect a redemption from such sale.
Second— Held further, that A. there
after heid the properly involved as se
curity for the payment ol money, and
with no other rights or remedies tlian
those accorded by law to a mortgagee.
Third— lt is also held that the evi
dence would have justified a findinc
that B. & X., to whom A. deeded the
property, obtained no greater or differ
ent rights and interests than tliose pos
sessed by A., and that both A. and li. &
K. were bound by a judgment entered
in certain mortgage foreclosure pro
ceedings instituted against the execu
tion debtor and W. prior to the assign
ment of the sheriff's certificate to A.
Judgment reversed.

The committee on fuel and janitors
made the following report, which was
adopted :
lv obedience to the order of the board
passed at the meeting, Aug. 29, 1892, we
beg leave to present the following re
port of schedule of salaries for janitors:
' According to this schedule the lotal cost
" f the care of the buildings lor the cur
ent year would be $32,170, which is a
invinc of 12,830 more than the 55,000 re
.l -ited; this is done without reducing
the salary of any janitor below a reason
able figure, in some cases giving them
more than they formerly received, and
making, each janitor, with the exception
of the one in the high school, respon
sible for the entire building, and paying
him enough to allow him to employ such
assistance as Jhe needs. In several in
stances we have given him more in the
winter than in the summer, because of
the increased work.
We recommend that for services jn
the night schools, janitors and en
gineers be paid the same salary
as heretofore; engineers $1 per night,
janitors 35 cents for one room and 25
cents a room for more than one room,
provided, however, that no janitor re
ceive more than $1 per night
We recommend tliat the supervisor of
repairs be constituted supervisor of jan
itors; that it be made a part of his duties
as he visits the different schools to see
that the work of the janitors is properly
performed, and when necessary, to in
struct janitors in their duties and to re
port to the committee on janitors in
stances of misconduct or failure to per
form their duties on the part of janitors.
It turned out that the schedule was
not quite completed by Secretary White,
and it was not given out for publication.
The committee on schools will hold v
special meeting Friday evening to con
sider the case of a school teacher who
was not re-employed.

will. The case was devised by this will

According to Him Americans Fill
the Prisons and Foreigners the
Poor Houses.
The popular idea seems to be that of
the crime and pauperism in the United
States the foreign-born population bears
the greater proportion. Secretary Hart,
of the state board of corrections ana
charities, has compiled a table or statis
tics that proves the contrary so far as
criminals' are concerned, although in
Minnesota there is a larger percentage
.ot foreigners in the insane asylums and
almshouses. This is also true in most
of the Eastern states.
The taole for Minnesota shows that 44
per cent of the state population is native
born and 56 per cent foreign. The pei- j
coinage of foreigners in the state prison
is 3i5, native 84. : In the county, jails tue
native-born population is 58 per cent,
the foreign 42; almhouses, native 25,
foreign, 75; insane asylums, native 38,
foreign, 62. _
The percentage of the population
whose parents were both native born is
.23,aud that of which one or Doth parents
are foreign born is 77. The proportion
of the former in the state prison popu
lation is 29 per cent, and the 'latter 71.
In the county jails the former have 22
per cent of the inmates and the latter
78, while in the almshouses tie popula
tion is 13 to 78 per cent. '.'
