Cocky Mr. Burns: Declines to Certify the Abated As- : sessments. What It Would Cost to Prop erly Repave East Third Street. . ; The personal liberty and professional . reputation of Dr. Thomas J. Pearce are in the hands of a jury of his peers, as are also the dignity and majesty of the law which he is alleged to have offend ed by committing a criminal operation on Helen Clayton, causing her death, just befoie last Christmas. The trial was concluded and the jury retired to their consultation room a few minutes before 5 o'clock last evening. At mid night no verdict was reached, and, if au agreement has been reached since then, will be made public at the meeting of court at 10 o'clock this morning. The morning session was taken up yester day with the introduction of evidence, but nothing new was adduced. It was a surprise to many spectators that Dr. Pearce did not go on the witness stand in his own defense. The law proh ibits any comment in the court room on the fact that the prisoner does not avail himself of the opportunity to tell his sideof the story, and nothing was sail directly by the county attorney on this subject in his able summing up to the jury.* The county attorney, how ever, was very severe in his reference to the defendant, and at times addressed himsely direct ly to Dr. Pearce with extended finger while hurling strings of the most sctorchlng invective at him. During his address the county attorney declared that he had been unable at any time, even the present, to know what de fense was to, be made." lie declared that the defense had had. a day's rest after hearing the state's evidence, a day of peace and quiet with an oppor tunity to pray for a defendant that needed praying for. "Now iv summing up," said the county attorney, "I won der how in God's name the defense will explain away the testimony of witnesses living and dead?". The county attorney exclaimed, "Who used this catheter?" and, answering his own- question, said: "A man who hung out a shingle and maintained an office for nine years. We don't know whether he was doctor, horse doctor or butcher." Tinning to Dr. Pearce, he said: "Who has said that it was proper to plunge this catheter into the body of Helen Clayton? To take her into an inner office, lock the door, place her on a table, deprive her of her senses and butcher her in the most damnable man ner. Who will excuse the weak husband. 1 will not. There may be mercy enough in heaven to pardon him tor the crime he consented to and to forgive the woman who repented on her death-bed, but what excuse is there for that man," pointing to the defend ant? "He did it for a paltry sso, and sits here with scornful face with no evi dence of repentance. In an other jurisdiction he would not be permitted to live. We have been compelled to sit here for a week in his presence. I be lieve he should be sent to solitary con finement until he shall become repent ant." The county attorney spoke for an hour and frequently characterized the defendant in severe terms. J. J. McCafferty addressed the. jury on behalf of the defense for a little over an hour. lie apologized for being se lected to make the closing address, and said lie had hoped that Mr. Brown would have performed tnat function. Mr. McCafferty criticised the course of the county attorney in being so severe in his denunciations, and then proceed ed to a discussion to show that the crime had not been proven. He also re ferred to Mr. Clayton in strong language as being an accomplice, whose story should be disregarded for the reason that he was a participant in the crime. Judge Kelly's chaige was a very fair one and uniloubtea'y a very able one. Among other things he told the jury that the story of an accomplice must not be regarded unless it is supported by other testimony, but he added that his refusal to dismiss the case was on the theory that the story of Stephen Douglass Clayton had been corroborat ed, and that however Clayton or his wife were the evidence of Clayton is before the jury.. The court also de clared that it had been clearly proven that the woman is dead, and her death was caused by blood poisoning induced by the abortion. . . BURNS IS MULISH. He Refuses to Certify the Abated Assessment Figures. County Auditor Burns refuses to sign the report of the board of abatements in reducing the assessments on the Lin deke estate, E. F.

THIRD STREET PAVING. Figuring on the Cost and Material — Granite for the Lower End. At the last meeting of the assembly a resolution was passed ordering the board of public works to report a pre liminary order.as to the cost and neces sity of repaying Third street. The matter was discussed in an informal way at a meeting of the board held yesterday. As was shown in a recent, issue of the Globe, the cost of repaying Third street, from Broadway to Wa basha street, with cedar blocks laid- in the same manner as now down, would be 813,409. or 82.76 per front foot: to the property owners. With cedar blocks on a concrete foundation, which is, in the opinion of the city engineer, much more desirable from every point ot view, the cost would be 819,239, or $3.96 per front foot to property owners. Granite blocks would cost $24,864, or $5.04 per front foot to property owners. The question of paving Third streot with granite blocks from Broadway to Kobert street was one of the. phases of the discussion yesterday. The idea ad vanced was to use granite between Broadway, and Robert street and then repair the balance of the stieet where needed with the cedar blocks taken from the street which were good. This, it was argued, would be a good plan, as the heavy trucking on the lower Dart of the street soon spoiled cedar block pave ment, and the use of grauite would ba THE SAINT PAUL DAILY GLOBE: TUESDAY MORNING. : FEBRUARY 28, 1833. MEN AND MEASURES. The Commercial club is awake at last. If William Pitt Murray will kindly attend a session in the legislature a pleasant chaiue may result.

The pool room went broke on tho boo_, as all the liends had a hot tip lhrough '.lie local storm. Tom Foley seems to have it in for the Press Bowling club; every- time it "plays he comes down on the alleys ana hoodoos it by plug ging for the other side. ' Mayor Wright has returned home, but thus . far ihe enforcement league has not. hail the nerve to beard the lion In his deu. The. mayor's office is at the city hall. Charlie Peisc-h and bis new railroad will, enter town when the flowers bloom iv the spring. Charlie will be conductor aud Mar.-, cus Munn engineer of the first train. Dr. Pearce aud his jury concluded to make a night of it. Well, it was much more pleas ant playing "seven up" in the court house than bracing the blizzard on a street corner. D. D. Merrill for mayor, Tom Cochran for . treasurer and Ham Davidson for comptroller is the ticket the reformers are talking up now. What a corker that would make, any how 1 " much cheaper in the end. It was thought enough of the blocks between Robert street 'and Broadway were in a state of preservation to use in the repair of such nortiou of the pavement as needed it west of Robert street. By this plan an assessment would be saved property owners which, according to statements made by realty owners on the street, would be greatly appreciated at this time. No definite conclusion was reached by the board, but it is probable the' reports of the council will give the figures for this plan, as well as for the entire repaying of the street. THE HEARTLESS MAID Has Her Swain Arrested — A Don- ble-Knded Tale. William T. Bowman, a waiter by oc cupation, was arrested yesterday after noon on a charge of disorderly conduct. There is, however, more to the charge than the complaint would indicate, at least if the story of the complaining witness is to be relied on. A rather uninteresting-looking woman, about twenty-two years old, is May Gemniel, who swore out the warrant. May at present lives at 472 Robert street. She said she had sworn out the warrant for fear Bowman would do her bodily harm. 'He had been so persistent in his attentions that she was obliged to give up her position as a typewriter in Cincinnati and go to Chicago. Bow man followed her to the last-mentioned city, and she, to escape him, came to St. Paul about two weeks ago. On Satur day, says, Bowman met her on the stieet and followed her to where she was stopping. Entering the house, he threatened her life if she would not lis ten to his tale of love. Becoming alarmed, she caused his arrest. Bowman, who is as mild a looking man as ever carried a "stack of whites" in a hashery, denies May's story in each and every particular. He says she had never been to Cincin nati, but came to Chicago from Vin cennes about a year ago, and went to work in a restaurant "washing dishes. From there she went to a house on Indiana avenue as a domestic. He became acquainted with her at the restaurant, and has paid her more or less attention since then. About a week ago siie wrote him to come to St. Paul, telling him the city had many advan tages, and suggesting a "nice little cot" eouid bo rented very cheap. Bowman, in proof of his story, shows the letter, written Feb. 14, and signed Mary Bow man. About the only thing Bowman objected to was that he . had "blowed in" the price of a ticket from Chicago here only to be locked up. Judge Twohy will endeavor to adjust the difficulty this morning. LOSSES ARK GREATER. More Nearly Correct Figures From Sunday's Bis Fire. The work of rebuilding the Minnesota Shoe company's building destroyed by fire Sunday wili be commenced at once. Yesterday the Taylor-Craig company had representatives at work on plans and estimates and the work of rebuild ing will begin as soon as the insurance is adjusted. The loss to the shoe company is estimated at §15,000 on the building and §75,000 on stock. Ktihles & Stock estimate their loss at $26,500, of which amount $24,000 is on the stock, the bal ance being on fixtures and tools. The damage to the stock will be total, as all the cigars and tobacco in. the building were either wet or spoiled by smoke. Very fortunate for' the firm the greater part of the imported tobacco was in the bonded warehouse. The employes, 125 in . number, will have to lay off until the insurance is adjusted. "Rodgers & Co.", the ma chinists; estimate their loss at about $10,000, which is covered by insurance at the same figure. The injured firemen, O'Neill and Gill man, who were taken to St. Joseph's hospital, are reported as suffering greatly, and the doctors do not express any opinion as 'to the result of their injuries. KIEHLE WAS HONORED. Chosen to Heart a National' Society ami Address a Club. Prof. D. L. Kiehle, state superintend ent of public instruction, returned Sun day from Boston, and was in iiis office at the capitol as usual yesterday. Prof. Kiehle has been in attendance at the annual national meeting of the school superintendents, of which association he was elected president, lie is natur ally highly pleased at the honor, winch is not, only a personal one, but a tribute to the standing of Minnesota and the Northwest in educational cir cles. While in Boston, too, Prof. Kiehle addressed the schoolmasters' club of that city on "The Trend of Education In the Northwest." Among other ten dencies he especially noted those to ward the unification of the course from the primary class to the university, and also the divergence of the courses of study in the sectarian and public schools, which was gradually taking them out of the Dale of competition. lie quoted to good effect in this con nection the famous utterance of Arch bishop Ireland at Baltimore: "The conservatism which is resolved to be ever safe is dry rot. Let there be individual action. Layman need not wait for priest, nor priest for bishop, nor bishop for pope. The timid move in crowds, the brave in single hies." So few members of the Commercial club responded to the call for the monthly enter-' tainment last night that it was determined to postpone the meeting until next Monday night, when it is expected | the ' blizzard will have passed, and a good company will be present.- - Children Cry for Pitcher's Castoria.

His defeat in trie federal court, when Judge Nelson refused the injunction and dismissed the bill of complaint, was followed by the dismissal of the case" in the state court, according to the statement ot Col. Stone, of counsel for the Merritts. It seems that the letting go in the state court was only for the purpose of get ting a new grasp, as appears by a bill of ; complaint filed yesterday, in the clerk's: office ot the Ramsey county district court. The new bill is an amended form of the one filed in the federal court and has the same object in view, namely," to enjoin the Merrits and a few others from voting as directors on stock al leged to have beeu secured by indirect means, and also to cancel $06G,66(j iv bonds and prevent the , sale of new bonds and stock at an aggregate much below the par value. The defendants named in the bill filed yesterday are the Duluth, Missaba & Northern Rail way company, K. D. Chase. Edwin N. Hall, S. R. Payne, W. W. Henry, C. C, Alfred, A. It., Leonidas, M. B.,"Eliza beth ML, L. J., Elizabeth E , John E.,T. A., E. T. and :L. F. Merritt, Albeit S. Chase and Donald Grant. The bill alleges that the directors have made a contract with C. W. Wet more and others representing the Rockefeller interest to sell 52,000~,000 in bonds and .$606,666 in paid up stock for the aggregate Drice of 81,000,000, payable as follows: Jan. 5, 1893. $100,000; Jan. 19, $190,000; Feb. 15, March 15, April 15 and May 15, payments of $210,000 each, and on June 15 of : this year the final payment of $470,000. It is claimed that the price agreed': uoou is much below the real value; that the money received by the directors is to be used for the following purposes: To extend the main line from Artichoke Creek to Duluth, $397,614; to build approaches to ore docks in Duluth and to construct viaducts over streets and tracks of other rail roads, $200,000; to build ore docks ■at Duluth," $300,000; to purchase additional rolling stock now under contract. $000, --000; to pay bankers' commissions and to associates, $32,000; to defray branch and other expenditures heretofore! made, $70,336. : • ■■■'■• '.' }j -It is shown that the contract for the sale of the bonds and stock and the pro posed mortgage is to be subject to the approval of C. VV. Wetmore, G. W.

The company also agreed to elect at once two directors, to be nominated by the associates in the deal with the rail road company. .' - ..'--;■ The court is asked to enjoin the direc tors of the railroad company trom exer cising the rights of stockholders who are alleged to have illegally secured stock and to cancel 1666,666 of stock al leged to have been illegally secured, ltis asserted that the following named persons have secured stock from per sons who illegally secured the same, namely: Elizabeth M.

From reliable information it is learned that developments of a serious nature have lately come to the surface in con nection with the management of the ap praising business of -Indian land pine timber, etc., which has been carriod on during" the past year on the White Earth, Ked Lake and other reservations in the northern part of the state. Some time ago the department at Washington was furnished facts and information that considerable crookedness was beiug . practiced by appraisers iv their esti mates of growing and standing pine timber on the ceded lands, viz., that all I' estimates were more or less ui?derestji- io mated. The result was that the departs ment immediately discharged from the service one of the appraisers who had been conscientious enough to reveal to the public the dishonorable methods employed. A short time afterwards the 1 officials of the department, perhaps fearing the indignation of public cen sure, for such unjust motives, pro-x ceeded to instruct the chief in charge of the appraisers to appoint several special appraisers, whose duty would be to go. on the grounds, follow the path of the formers' appraisers, and re-estimate and check the work on lands previously visited and estimated, and to report any and all crookedness discovered in con nection with the appraisement, etc. Recently certain developments cropped out to 'the surface, revealing the fact that not only friends, but some very near relatives of the first appraisers, had been appointed as specials in the case, viz., a brother, a son and a son-in law to some one of the men. ; It now seems utterly impossible to expect that anything near a just estimate can be secured of the land and timber in ques tion under its present management, .and the only solution of the matter would seem to be that ,the coming ad ministration select an entire new board j of appr."scr3, as outlined in the agree- j ment of 1881), and to comprise some com petent members of the Indians inter- 1 ested. In tnis manner only can the Indian's inte r est be protected, and the state escape being defrauded outof mill ions of feet of growing and standing piue and other. timber. :=. - y }y} ' ! \ 'A TALK : v OP .WOE. | ' , ' Below zero.

INDIAN.3 REJOICE Over What the New Administra- tion Will Do for Them. With the coming in of the new ad ministration a new impetus seems to be given, and greatly tending to the inter est of the Minnesota Indians, especially those residing on the White Earth reser vation. In addition to the long de layed sum of §150.000, known as the reservoir damage fund, which will shortly be paid them per capita, a large flouring mill will be constructed for reservation purposes the coming sum mer. Arrangements have also been completed for manufacturing and fur nishing them some 2,000,000 feet of lum ber, seed for field and garden crops, etc. The board of Chippewa Indian commissioners, operating on the White Earth reservation, has, at the request of the Indian department at Washing-, ton, furnished plans and specifications for the erection of two dwelling houses, one each for Chief White Cloud and May-zhuc-ke-ge-shig. Work on the buildings will be "commenced in the early spring. TO MAKE ONE MORE OFFICE. Building Inspector Gillinan So Regards the Pending Bill. Building Inspector Gillman, of Min neapolis, was in the city yesterday, and during the afternoon called on Building Inspector Morris. In speaking of the bill now before the legislature, creating a state inspector of elevators, Mr. Gill man said he had no doubt that it would be killed. He was of the opinion the bill was introduced simply to creato an office for some one to fill. Should the bill pass it would, he said, simpiy pave the way for more bills and offices of the same kind, such as astate plumb ing inspector and a state building in spector. The number of passenger ele vators outside the Twin Cities were less than one hundred. In the cities, of St. Paul and Minneapolis • they were in spected by employes of the building inspector's office in a careful and satis factory manner, as was .shown by the annual reports and demonstrated by the few accidents which occurred. He had been promised by .the Hennepin delega -1 tion that the bill would be opposed by. them in the house. OUTSIDE THE PIER. There Is Where Manufacturers Want the West Side Track. 1 At yesterday's meeting of the West St. Paul Manufacturers' association a resolution was passed requesting that the city council, in allowing the Fifth 'Ward Railway Transfer company the , privilege of constructing a railway ' across the river, stipulate in the ordi nance that the tracks must be con- I structed outside of the Kansas City Rail road company's pier for the reason : that in case it is built inside some of r the buildings used -by the munufact urers would have to be torn down to make room for the ; road. The resolu tion will be presented to the council at its next meeting. Those present at yesterday's meeting were Messrs. Dorn, Villaume, Baker, Lee.

The sale of tickets for the St. Paul Choral association concert Thursday opened . at Dyer's yesterday morning, and the prospects are . excellent for a large house.

The "Judas Maccabaeus" is written in Handel's best style, and con tains many of his most popular airs and choruses.

The. additions in the chorus numbers have been made by Vincent Novello, and in the. arias Mr. Baldwin has carefully made whatever additions were neces sary for a proper performance. The first part of "St. Paul,'.' which forms ,the second half of the programme, may be classed among Mendelssohn's great est works. Altogether, the programme is in keeping with the high reputation of the choral association. wm 'i The personal injury case of Paulina 'Nelson against the City of St. Paul is on trial in Judge Egan's court The plaiu tiff fell on a defective sidewalk and Sprained her ankle, for which she de mands ?'>.031.
