A TIMELY WARNING, Comments on McCardy's Ex pense Estimate for Next Year. C ONFERENCE COMMITTEE. It Can Take the Reins of City Government Into Its Own Hands. CITY FINANCIAL DRIFT. Taxpayers Should Attend Council and Committee Meetings. A gentleman who has larse interests in tins city, ami who has made a deep study of municipal affairs, was seen by a Glx)BK reporter last nijjlit and save tlie following interesting resume of his thoughts on an important subject to taxpayers, He said thai lie preferred uot to have his name used. lie is, how ever, a gentleman well qualified to dis cuss municipal affairs. Here is what he said: 1 have read Comptroller McCardy's detailed estimate of our necessary city expenses [or the year IMC>. It is plain, direct aud a model in detail and clear ness. 1 vi< • not remember of any former estimate having l>reii made iv such de tail, or in a manner so easy to be under stood. He tells us our city must obtain and urn. In 1595, by direct luxation, 1L.888, --fcti.62; and that in addition to that a Bum ol 1400,000 which it will receive from licenses and oilier sources, or a ci ami total ol >:.'»."-"'-t 62. This seems a very large amount. We wonder how many of our citizens who read it will study it? in publicity and intelligent discus sion :l.e taxpayer finds liis preservation. Secrecy and person*! neglect is tiie one groat curse aim source of liis public burdens. How many understand that the city will It. :iii to Live out of the fund embraced in this tax es timate in January, lSi'^, and that not a dollar—save a p«rt ut the $400,000—will be collected untii IMKi? How many understand that the amount of the tax collected in Ib9C will be fixed and settled within the next forty day*? How many understand that the tax to be collected in 1895 Las been or will be all extended in 1b94; or how many, in fact, of (in taxpayers have or take any intelligent interest or have any cor rect knowledge of our city nuances? They will ecu.plain, in 1896, when they pay then taxes, of the heavy burdens placed upon them; but very lew will read and study this tax estimate from first to last; and few—very few—will attend the meetings of the conference committee during the next ten day*, or the council meetings in the coining Jan uary, and, by wore! or act, seek to re duce these burdens. Within the next thirty days this tax estimate, fixing the burdens to be uaid in lM't!. with such minor chances, if any, as may be made, will become, by the action of these two bouies, under the law. Irrevocably Fixed* and all future complaining or protests on the part of the taxpayers cannot change it. 1 feel sure the city officers will gladly receive from any Intelligent taxpayer, from any one who knows what he is talking about, any suggestions on this proposed tax estimate. The comptroller, it is to be noticed, makes this estimate, and in detail, to the conference committee, which is composed of the respective heads of each board or department of the city government. It is the duty, now, of this committee to consider it carefully in ail its details— correct it, if necessary —and then recommend It to the council fur adoption. The council must act on it in January, and this estimate, when adopted by the council, is certified. forthwith, to the county auditor, whose duty it is to spread the tax. This action of the council In January fixes in dollars and cents the amount— the maximum amount—each board or department can expend during the year ISDS. As this money is not collected in.m the taxpayer until 1896, the city, as it needs money,from month to month, in 18(J5, sells its certificates or Short Time Bonds In anticipation of tbe collection of this tax in l^'.Mi. A;;u thvse certificates are paid in LBU6, with taxes then collected. Certificates only to ihe extent of fco per cent oi Hie tax estimate made for any board or department can be sold, it being the policy and expectation that enough taxes, delinquent of prior year?, will be collected to make up the rematniujc 20 per rent estimated for the exj)*-f<ciitisrt 3 of any department. The ui.t-xp: ndtri surplus of aiiy department for any year is earned forward into the m-xl year to the credit of that depart ment. This financial policy makes ob litralory a s>;udy and economy on the part of ihe beatis of each department to keep its annual expenses within the limits of its annual allowance. It makes the certificates sold a safe and EUany men cf ai£3» minds " sa^ ISiat treats, aBI other kinds Climax Plug is much tb.s best chewing tobacco [made. It's Lorlllard's.

It is the economy and business management of private lite carried into and made obligatory in municipal busi ness affairs. The charter, also, has most admirable provisions for checking any department in a wasteful or prodigal expenditure of its annual Allowance. The conference committee must hold a meeting once, at least, each month during all the year. It is its duty to demand, at each meeting, reports in writing from the head of each depart ment, showing clearly its past work and expenditures. If, on such show-in*, in the opinion of the committee, any de partment is drawing, or ha* drawn, so largely or prodigally upon Its annual allowance that it will Not Have Money enough to supply its needs to the end of the year, the conference committee has the absolute power to limit the future expenditures of that board or depart ment— tie its hands—in tact, to taue Into the committee's control the future expenditures of the spendthrifts at the head of that unlucky board. The mayor is the chairman of the conference com mittee, and is, of course, one of its.uiost dominant members. Not a dollar can be drawn from the treasury of the city. save upon a warrant signed by the mayor, city clerk and comptroller. Such, in brief, is an outline of the financial system of St. Paul. Will the taxpayers take any practical, active, intelligent interest in McCardy's tax estimate of necessary city expenses for the year IS(JS? LEONARD ON TRIAL FOB THi: KILLING OF F.Ntil- .\ t.».U CHAt. J. LITH. An Important Case Which Arose Out of the Great Hail road Strike. Charles E. Leonard, who shot and killed Engineer Charles J. Loth last July, during the strike, is on trial in Judge Brill's court on the charge of murder in the second degree. The work of securing a jury began yester day afternoon. About forty of the reg ular taiiel were examined, resulting in the selection of four, as follows: George Conrad, a cooper employed by the Standard Oil company, residing at No 3 Fremont street; Charles \i. Bui man, a painter for George 11. Brack, residing at 433 Mount Ida street; Benjamin F. Beardsley, agent for the Employers' Liability association, boarding at trie Hotel Barteau, and John F. Fischer, an architect, residing at 501 Park avenue. There are thirteen of the regular panel to be s"iecteii from. J'ldtre Brill or dered the sheriff to summon a number of talesmen for today. When the jurors were allowed to go for the nitrht Jud^ re brill, at the request of counsel, charged them to report any attempt maue to in fluence them outside of the court room. C. D. & Thomas D. O'Brien appear for the defense and County Attorney But ler for the prosecution. The case will be tried on a line oi defense, intimated by C. l>. O'Brien, wiio, whtrn examining jurors, statt-d that the question of Charles J. Luth meeting iiis death at the hands of Leonard would not be denied. The triers of the challenges for actual bias are James C. Michael and li. F. Phillips, both of whom have been as sistant corporation attorneys, and M. L. Countryman. They were selected by Judge Brill, and are among the best attorneys at the bar. The question of belonging to the A. R. U. is being cone into by the attorneys for the defense when examining jurors on their voir dire. Quite a number have made up their mind on the question at issue. Leonard was B Clerk in the Omaha of fice in this city. He, with a fellow clerk uamed Nash, went into a boarding house on lower Third street last July to secure board for some men to take'tht* place of strikers. Luth and a com panion were in the room at the time, and tcld the woman who conducted the place that she ought not have anything to do with Leonard, as the men he wanted board for were "scal>6," A dis pute arose, which turned to a scuffle, a small counter was turned over, and Leonard shot Luth. There was great excitement at the time. Charles J. Luth was a switch engineer. Many people viewed his remains at the morgue, and his funeral was attended by over S.OOO A. R. U. men from the Twin Citits. The galleries were filled yesterday with spectators, and great interest will be manifested as the trill progresses. Probably all of today will be taken up in an effort to secure a jury. Who Owns the Horses? To the Editor of the Giobe. The Humane society has been called upon to take charge of a brown team of horses, left without care since last Fri day, and owned by Ludwig Carlson. The secretary of the society would like very much to find out who has the mort gage on the horses at once, as it is un derstood Mr. Carlson has left the city, and the team has to be cared for at trie expense of the Humane society unless the parties holding the mortgage will taku charge of them at once.

Judge Buck Takes a Whirl at the Findings of the Lower Court. JUDGE CANTY DISSENTS In the Case of the Yellow Medicine County Bank vs. Wig-er. JOHN ZELCH VICTORIOUS In His Appeal From the Rul ings of a District Court. Five decisions were handed down by the supreme court yesterday, all writ ten by Justice Buck. In the case of The Yellow Medicine County Bank against F. N. Wi^er et al., in whicn the decision of the lowei court is re versed, Judge Canty dissents from the decision o' the majority of the court in so far as the de cision holds that the order appealed from should be reversed as to any of the defendants. The syllabus of the case follows: Yellow Medicine County Bank (a cor poration), appellant, vs. T. N. Wiser c; ai., respondents. Syllabus—A large number of persons signed a paper upon which the plaintiff brought an action against all of them, alleging it to be a negotiable promissory note, of which lie was the assignee, and upon the trial the plaintiff produced n note and proved the signatures to the note to be genu ine as to many of-them, while several of tiie defendants denied the genuineness of .their signatures, the defense inter posed in the defendants' answer being allegations of fraud on the part of the payee in the note, and that he repre sented it to be a blank book for their subscriptions in taking shares in the purchase of a stallion, and thai the paper signed by them was concealed by means ol a false cover or paper placed over the book, whereby their signatures were thus obtained by false and fraud ulent means and representations. Upon the trial four of [he defendants div not appear or give any testimony as to their being misled or deceived in signing the paper or note which plaintiff had proven to be a negotiable promissory note with their genuine sig natures attached. Held, that, it was error for the jury to find a verdict in (heir behalf. it also appeared that one of the de feudants who signed the note did not then know that it was a note, he being the second person who signed it, but it did conclusively appear that shortly after he signed it he was in formed that it was a promissory note,and thereafter he went around with the payee in the note and saw him get additional signatures to it. Held, that the plaintiff being a purchaser of the note before maturity in good faith, and for value, was entitled to a verdict as against such defend ant. Held, also that the question of negli gence upon the part of some of the other defendants in affixing their signa tures to the note was one for the jury to determine under G. L. 1883, chap. 114. Also that it was a question of fact for the jury as to whether the remaining defendants ever signed the note. Buck, J. Other Decisions. Wells-Stone Mercantile Company, re sponuent, vs. John A. Bowman, appel lant. Syllabus— Where, upon trie trial of an action, a pa rty discovers the exist ence of a relationship between one of the jurors and the other party, such as to disqualify him from setting as a juror, he should present proper proor thereof to the court and ask for the discharge of the jury, and the impaneling of an other jury, and if instead of so doing he moves to continue the case, he is tcuilty of such negligence as precludes him from availing himself of the disqualifi cation of the juror as a ground for a new trial, ilo should make the objection at the earliest practical moment and not bo allowed to speculate on the verdict, and afterwards move for a new trial if the result is unfavorable to him. Order aUirmed. Buck, J. tower Court Reversed. John Zelch. appellant, vs. P. J. flirt, respondent. Syllabus — Where the question as to the consideration for which certain notes and a chattel mortgage is in issue, and there is no written contract upon the subject of what constituted the consideration, evi dence tending to show that the testi mony of one party is more reasonable than that of the other is admissible. Sebwerin vs. De Graft and another, 21 Minnesota 354, followed. Order re versed. BrcK, J. A not tic; Reversal. Anchor Investment Company, appel lant, vs. F. S. Kirkpatrick, impleaded with Egbert G. Handy and others, re spondents. Syllabus—ll, X and H1•. a valuable consideration executed and de livered to B a written guaranty that C would pay to B any and all indebted ness or liabilities which might then or thereafter be owing to B by C not to ex ceed in amount the sum of $10,O00,which written guaranty was a continuing one. Held, that B beiug the holder and own er of four promissory notes made to B by C amounting to $11,000. which were overdue, B had the legal right to assign the written guaranty with the sale and transfer of the notes to a third party, such a written guaranty being assign able. Order reversed*. Buck, J. Remedial Rights. George A. Reiser, as administrator, etc., of J. Gigrlch, deceased, appellant, vs. Barbara Gigrich et al., respondents. Syllabus— l. G. and his wife held three promissory notes made to them jointly, secured by a real estate mortgage. G. died testate, and by the terms of his will bequeathed to his wife the sole use. benefit,interest and income of his whole estate during the term of her natural life, and in case the income therefrom should be insufficient for her support, then she was authorized to take a suffi cient sum from the principal for her support during her lifetime. After the husband's death the widow fore closed the mortgage, bid in the premises in her own name, which were duly redeemed by the owner and the whole of the redemption money paid to the widow, who deposited it in "a bank, and two certificates thereof were issued to the widow, and ehe transferred them to her son. The executor named in the will filed his account, and also filed his resignation with the probate court, which was duly accepted, and thereupon the widow petitioned the probate court for the appointment of an administrator of the estate, with the will annexed, which was done accord ingly, and he brought suit against the widow, the son and the bank where the tnOuey Was Ineri deposited for posses sion thereof, field, that the action could be maintained against allot them, and that the bank was a proper defendant. - *• '£«•» Cotirt adopt! as the law the /$12.78\ m W. 2 challenge any one to duplicate the Suits we are w . selling at the above price for less than twice that amount.

Yesterday her body was found floating near an air hole in Lake Como by a young man named Frank Schwartz, who was skating on the lake. About 4 o'clock when Schwartz passed the air hole lie noticed a human head resting on a cake of ice, and closer ex amination revealed the upright body of a woman, held in that position by the loose ice. The boy notified Prior ave nue police station; identity was soon established, and the body turned over to O'ilalloran & Murphy. Aa suicid was evident, Coroner Whitcomb de cided that an inquest was unnecessary Mrs. Kraweczak was intemperate, and a few days before leaving borne she had suffered a mild attack of delirium tre mens. As a result of this attack her nerves were unstrung, and on the day of her departure she had worried and wept about past business losses. At 2 o'clock she put a shawl over her head and stated that she was going to visit her sister-in-law at the comer of West ern and Edmund. She went there, but her sister-in-law was not at home. An hour later Mrs.Cufkia, an acquaintance, living at the corner of Charles and Western, looked casually out ot the window and saw Mrs. KraweezaK run ning wildly up Western avenue.
