The alibi testimony of the man who The alibi testimony of the man who swears he wasn't there when the deed was done never contradicted, the testi mony of the complaining witness more positively than did the testimony be fore the board of public works yes terday of the owners of the land to be taken for Phalen park give the lie to that of the gentlemen whose prop- erty-is to be assessed to 'pay for that land. It was an interesting hearing. The real estate experts crossed swords with each other as to values of land, but as all the parties were more, or less interested either in swelling or depreciating the values, no definite in- i formation as to the real value could be gleaned from their testimony. The substance of it was as follows: In the forenoon the board took the testimony of Reuben Warner, the owner of a five-acre piece in lot 5, which piece fronts on Lake Phalen, and also that of R. F. Marvin, a real estate expert, called by the owners of the property. Mr. Warner testified that he regarded his five acres worth $4,000 per acre, and estimated the re maining seventeen acres of lot 5 at $2,500 an acre. Mr. Warner valued the remaining seventy-four acres constituting lots 3 and 4 at from $1,500 to $-",000 an acre. Upon these figures Mr. Warner's valuation of the entire ninety-six acres to be taken amount- ed to $184,250. Mr. Marvin's estimate, while not so high as to Mr. Warner's rive acres, which he valued at only $2,500 an acre, aggregated for the whole tract, $194,700. J. C. Horrigan, ex-member of the board of public works, was called the first thing in the afternoon. Mr. Hor- rigan appeared as a witness for the owners of the property. His valua tion of the ninety-six acres was $194, - - Then the board listened to some tes timony on the other side— that is, on the part of the owners of neighboring property to be assessed for this im provement. This was quite different. Robert Bryant was the first witness. Mr. Bryant was the most liberal in his estimate of the value of the nine- ty-six acres. He conceded it was worth on an average of $1,000 an acre, which was a** trifle less than half the valuation placed upon the land by the owners and their witnesses. C. W. Horr, who owns property just within the confines of the assessment dis trict, and therefore not subject to a heavy assessment, questioned Mr. Bry ant and the other witnesses with as much eagerness as though the actual title to his own property were at stake, and smiled audibly whenever an owner cf assessable property de- clared he didn't consider the land to be taken for Phalen park a sacred plot of ground, -to be excepted from the general depreciation in value that affected other property. ON THE OTHER SIDE, ON THE OTHER SIDE, Pat Kavanagh cross-examined the depredators, but they turned a deaf ear to Mr. Kavanagh's poetic allusions to the surpassing beauty of Lake Phalen's sheltering shore, and the more Patrick praised the picturesque spot, the more the unappreciative own- ers of assessable property grinned, and lowered their estimates of its value. John A. Stees, who followed Mr. Bry- ant, proved totally unsusceptible to the glowing description of the beauty of the future Phalen park. Mr .Stees owns some property that will be as- sessed for this improvement, and without exhibiting a trace of sorrow, he smilingly estimated the entire ninety six acres to be worth not more than $08,150. His highest estimate per acre was only $800, and his lowest $67.0. In the course of his testimony Mr. Stees admitted, in reply to Mr. Kavanagh, that If he had a piece of land worth $1,000, he would accept $3,000 for it if anybody wanted to give him that sum. J. R. Heide, another assessable prop- erty owner, didn't think the tract was worth over $77,600. Two years ago, however, during the panic, Mr. Weide's testimony as to this very land, placed a much higher estimate on it, a fact to which President Gorman called his at- tention, for the board of public works keeps a copy of all testimony. The last witness examined was R. B. Lewis, who valued the ninety-six acres at $70,850. The hearing was then ad journed until. 10 a. m. today. " Thus far the testimony of all the wit- nesses, including Mr. Kavanagh and Samuel E. Dawson, the owners of the majority of the property to be taken, who valued it at $209,400 and $209,600, ; respectively, shows the average of the estimates to lie $135,040, approximately, or about $1,400 an acre. After the hear ing is concluded, the board of public works. will examine the property to be taken, and the members will form their own estimate of its value.

Secretary Hewitt?* Report to the State Board of Health.* f 7*7: At the semi-annual meeting of the state' board of health, held yesterday at the capitol, there were present Drs. Keogh, of Minneapolis; Mayo, of Rochester; McCornb, of Duluth; Mil- lard and Hewitt, of St< Paul. .. __._ .. Secretary Hewitt, in a report submit- ted to the board, reviewed the work that has been done the past . six months. In regard to the water sup- ply in the cities, he says that chemical, bacteriological and biological tests are made every day, and that during the past year a total of 617 chemical analyses of water.. from the two cities and 176 from other localities 'have been made, an average of three for every working day of the year. Over 200 bacteriological • and biological^ tests have been made. It is found, that the disagreeable odor of the water in both cities during the summer is due to dead or dying small vegetable life; and has no relation to special diseases, but it is a nuisance and may be dangerous. Special mention 'was made in the secretary's report of the relations of the board with other boards and with quarantine stations, from which they receive regular reports. He warned the board of the coming of immigrants that have been exposed 7 to infectious diseases. During the past half-year they have received reports from New York harbor of sixty immigrants for twenty-five localities and from the St. Lawrence quarantine station twenty one cases for eight localities. No-in fection has resulted from any of these cases. " " '~A.7:~'7A ''-'''. In regard to small-pox they have re THE SAINT PAVh DAILY GLOBE: WEDNESDAY MORNING, jui,r 10, 1895, ceived sixty-two reports from : eighteen ' states, of 1,112 ' cases, and 158 " deaths, but the disease • was not brought . to ' this state. Since Jan. 1 the board has furnished 480 doses of tuberculin for testing cat tle for tuberculosis and 120 doses of mallein for testing glanders in horses. Since April, 1893, 225 horses have been tested for this disease; 128 -were con- demned and 97 were cleared. Tuber culin - . tests were made on 658 cattle, 182 -were condemned and 476 cleared. Both tuberculin and mallein have been used freely by veterinarians and with great success. During the year 300 diphtheria boxes for testing the disease have been sent out to medical men and examined at the laboratory. Dr. Hewitt is now preparing for the production of anti toxine from a horse at Red Wing sta tion, and he says the experiment -bids fair to be" a success. The board has made 122 examinations for tuberculosis in men and cattle. It was found the hog cholera pre vailed in about tli_-ty-five localities in the state, but it is no - well under control. •;-•"'= 7'-;7---..'" ** - SACRED CONCERT * At St. Joseph's Church This Even. ing.

The board of fire commissioners held a regular meeting yesterday, and dis- posed of routine business, which con sisted in receiving the report of Chief Engineer Jackson and the other heads of departments. The board adopted an important resolution, requesting the owners and lessees of the big blocks in the busi ness districts not to lock the iron shut- ters on the inside, as in case of fire it is Impossible to gain access to the windows. Chief Jackson was instruct- ed to see the business men and person- ally notify them of the report of the board. Monthly bills amounting to some $1,500 were approved. The chief re ported that the spring repairs to engine houses and apparatus were completed. The board will probably make a tour of inspection of the engine houses in the course of ten days.

Attorney General Childs yesterday Attorney General Childs yesterday granted the request made by the sta tionary engineers of Minneapolis for the use of his name in quo warranto proceedings to test the right of State Boiler Inspector Sutton to hold" his position. The case will now be taken up by the supreme court in the Octo ber term. The attorney general's opin- ion is as follows: I am requested to file an informa tion in the nature of a quo warranto against Hon. John B. Sutton to test j his title to the office of state boiler in- I spector, to which he was appointed by the governor of this state in the ! month of May of the present year. At the last general election Mr. Sut- ton was elected a member of the house of representatives from the Twenty- j third legislative district; and there- j upon duly entered upon and continued i in the discharge of the duties thereof until his resignation therefrom, occur ring a short time prior to his said ap pointment. His . title to his present office is assailed on the ground that he was ineligible to such appointment, by ! reason of the prohibition contained in the constitution of Minnesota, article 4, section 9, which, so far as material, is as__follows: No senator or repre sentative shall, during the time for which he is elected, hold any office under the authority of the United States or the state of Minnesota, ex cept that of postmaster. ... It is contended that during the period of two years from and after his induc tion into office, a member of the legis | lature is ineligible to hold any other office save that of postmaster, and that such ineligibility cannot be overcome by resignation, or otherwise. Although the question has long been deemed res ail judicata in this department, I de termined, in view of its great public importance,, to afford the gentlemen an opportunity to be heard upon it, and accordingly provided a day for hear- ing, at which the subject was THOROUGHLY DISCUSSED in all its various lights. Whenever the question has heretofore engaged the j attention of the attorney general, j whether as to elective or appointive I j offices,- it has invariably been held that i the prohibition of the constitution was I ! designed merely to prevent one's hold- } j Ing another office during his incum- ' | I bency of the office of senator or rep- I resentative. In the two leading mat- I ters heretofore considered in this de partment—in re Paige and in re Gilman | —it was held that as to an elective j i officer the disability ceases upon resig i nation. The same doctrine has on sev eral occasions been extended to ap pointive officers. The case of Barnum vs. Gilman, 27 Minn., 465, is relied upon as an au- I thority in support cf Mr. . Sutton's ! claims. Strictly speaking, that. case: really decides that one not receiving, a I majority of votes cast for a given office has no such interest therein as entitles I him. to call in question his opponent's! title thereto. What was said in that j case as to the eligibility of the re- ! spondent was really obiter, and was | so regarded by the chief justice, who \ for that reason refused to concur in j the views expressed in the majority | j opinion. However, it cannot be de- nied that that case has quite generally j been regarded as decisive of the ques- ! tion, and no doubt has greatly influ- j enced the more recent views of this I office. I have on several occasions been constrained to adopt the views ex- | pressed in the earlier decisions of my predecessors, not so much because of | my approval of the construction which had been placed upon the constitu j tion, as by force of the rule stare ! decisis. But in the matter of Jones re- cently considered, I expressly stated ! that I should not hesitate, whenever j the public interests might seem to re- I quire, to submit the question to the I j courts. It certainly cannot be said ! | that the question is free from doubt, or I I that the reasoning of this office in I prior cases will receive judicial sanc | tion. Indeed it is somewhat signifi- I cant to note the - EXPRESSIONS OF DOUBT j with which both of the leading opin | ions above referred to are character | ized. Thus in re Paige it was said: | Hence, whatever may be the rule as ! regards appointive offices, whether the ! precedents of a legislative and execu tive character heretofore established in relation to them are correct or in correct, it seems to me beyond reason able controversy that the clause in question cannot be construed as limit- I ing or in any manner restricting the people in their choice of elective of- ficers or in voting for whomever they may deem best fitted and qualified to serve them in situations of public trust j and confidence. And In re. Gilman it I was said: I must admit that the.rea j soning of my predecessors on this ques | tion does not wholly satisfy my judg ment—an infirmity of the latter rather j than any defect in the logic of • the i former— and prior to examining the | records of my office, I was impressed j with the idea that Mr. Gilman was j ineligible to the office of lieutenant | governor. I proceeded on the theory i that the framers of the constitution - i meant just what the language used ' naturally imports, and that a member ! should not be elected to or hold any j other office during the time for which' j he was elected: that the object of the' • constitution was to take away from 1 members all temptation to convert: the". legislature into a hot-bed of political I Am Glad To toll what Hood's Sarsaparilla has ■-_'il_ll_________****-s_ done for me. • .&^i-fe^llPib=_ * *'ail r!icil -• mal'sna In nfy ' ;§^2_gß^§§§p^|c^K iiialism in my W *-*lili letrs and fr*H9. ifr ',i**-l*l* 'etfS anc* Has**. llSi. iue-*t*y 11-«"1 7-#ip&' iiil^ to eet up at | ~y*j %*s~ night and M/A/j^), $}} walk to relax t _£&__-* A. &y walk t0 n'lax l^S. £*/ the muscles..

El>3 j vs. Lennon 86, Mich. 468. There is seemingly a widespread sentiment.both within and without the ranks of the legal profession in this state, that the question of the proper construction of the provision of the constitution under consideration should be submitted to the courts, and the meaning, of that i provision definitely determined. While I am loath to subject Mr. Sutton to the expense and annoyance of the. neces sary litigation, I feel that I cannot j properly disregard the wishes of so" j many of my fellow citizens and permit his claims to eligibility to go unchal lenged. j Whatever the decision of the 'courts, it will dissipate doubt, allay discussion, and prove salutary to the public welfare, to obtain an adjudica tion of the question. •:, . .7 •'' !

They Will Be the Como Attrac tion on Sun-lay. The biggest show of the season Is announced to take place at Lake Como pavilion next Sunday afternoon and evening. In addition to the big band concerts, the famous Nelson sisters, j four of the most daring female aero ' bats in the world, have been especially engaged at by far the largest salary that has ever been paid any single feature that has ever appeared at Como since it became a public place i of amusement. These sisters are in I no way related to the Nelson family of [ acrobats that appeared in St. Paul some weeks ago. It is stated that they receive $100 every time they perform. In addition to the two attractions men- tioned above, there will be seen at Como next Saturday afternoon and evening Mile. Olive, a female juggler and contortionist, without equal on the vaudeville stage of America. Then, there will also appear, Sunday, in all probability, Harding and Little Ah Sid, the remarkable acrobats and bur- lesquers, presenting their widely- known sketch in pantomime, entitled "Fun in a Wash House." If the weath er is pleasant next Sunday, with such an array of talent to be seen at Como, free of all charge, it is expected that the immense crowd that visited those inviting shores on the Fourth of July will be duplicated, if not excelled, in size. Seibert's band will continue to be the musical attraction at Como every afternoon and evening of the present week.

Appointments on Hoard of Equalization. I It. is. .likely that a question,- will be -raised as to the legality "of the election by the common council Monday night I of the four members to serve on the | board of equalization. Those ' elected i were Assemblymen Parker and Cope . land and Aid. Montgomery and Kar- I talc. Immediately after the election, j Assemblyman Reardon announced I that the city attorney had advised I : him that the common council j had no I i authority to elect members of the i j board of equalization, but President ! ! Rob.]), of the common council, decided ; | that the body had that authority, ! I which ended the matter for the. time ; I being. In referring to this subject yes- j | terday, Corporation Attorney Darragh ; j said: . "It is my opinion that the char- ' j ter doe's not authorize the common I I council in joint session to elect the j j members of the board of equalization. It provides that the joint body shall ' elect only certain city officials. The members of the board of equalization are county officials, rather than city officers. They are certainly more than city officers. I maintain that they should be chosen by each branch of j the council acting separately— is, ! ! the board of aldermen should elect two j of its members and the assembly I choose two assemblymen to serve on the board of equalization." 1111 STONE ALARMED Over the Mad Dog Epidemic, hut He Is Powerless. Health Commissioner Stone says that it is a grave mistake for citizens to suppose that St. Paul dogs are no longer going mad, and that therefore it is time to unmuzzle all dogs. On the contrary, Dr. Stone declares that during the past two weeks the health J department has encountered more ! trouble than ever in dealing with this matter. The failure, however, of the | council to support the doctor in his j efforts to suppress the mad dog has i made his work all the more difficult. "I am tiled," said Dr. Stone, "of j fighting for what the council will not \ give, and if anything happens it will j not be my fault, for I have done all I I could." Mayor Smith says that the council I ought to appoint dog catchers and do something to rid the city of the super- abundance of curs. The mayor called attention to the fact that in Minneap- ! olis' they had already collected some j $5,000 for dog licenses. * Enclose a stamp to any agent of tho .

W. j W. Erwin, the well-known attorney. ' The following programme was ren- j dered: Opening address, Frank C. I Kueppers; piano solo, little Mabel j Silbert; address, M. E. Murray, pres- ! ident of the international union; : tenor solo,- Thomas McMillan; ad- 1 dress, Sam Brandt, of the trades and j labor assembly; soprano solo, Miss • Bertie Steiger; initiation of Mr. Er- j win. The musical numbers were all well ! received, and all of them encored. i Mr. Kueppers' remarks were brief, j He said it was an honor to acknow ledge the services of one who had for | years fought the battles of the Amer- i ican wage earner in the courts of ! law. _ | Mr. Murray dwelt upon the objects I of the union, which were well ex- j ! pressed in the motto "Justice, Be- j nevolence, Industry and Unity." This ! motto represented all that was good, j right and elevating. He wished the j first word were written upon the j pages of the records of the national ' congress, and upon those of the ! courts. The barbers' union, he stat- | ed, had been successful in its efforts j for a shorter work day and one of ! rest. A number of states had re- I cently passed laws closing the shops j on Sundays.

Speaking ot the MATTER OF THE INITIATION, he said that the membership was conferred upon Mr. Erwin not for what he might do for them in the future, but for what he had already done for organized labor in the past. Whenever it came to a fight in the courts, laboring- men would call for the man whose name would appear tonight upon their membership roll for the first time. Mr. Brandt eulogized the guest of the evening as the man who dared to volunteer among all the talent and mighty intellects of the land for the poor wretches at Homestead, when their. hour of trouble arrived. When Mr. Erwin was escorted to the platform there was a storm of ap plause. The obligation of fidelity was then administered by Mr. Murray and the hand of fellowship extended. This was all there was to the ceremony, but those present applauded it to the echo. When quiet was restored Mr. Erwin addressed the meeting in one of his characteristic speeches. He said in part: "This is the proudest moment of my life. Whether the action is justified or not must be told after the horizon of my life shall have been closed. Few men have the good for- tune to receive in their lifetime the commendation of their fellows, or of unselfish men. In this republic there are no doubt many men who would have done even more than I did on some noted occasions when war came between class line ana mass line. "To be singled out and publicly de- clared a friend of those men who have pledged their lives to advance the in- terests of their fellow men, without cant or hypocrisy, is indeed an honor. I trust that men wil not envy me this and that I may be able to carry out the trust thus imposed. The inspi- ration to secure a betterment of the laboring man rests now solely with masses of organized labor. I have seen the pulpit sleep for twenty-five years. Not one measure of relief came from that vast department which seeks to control the moral forces of our people. All that has been won for the enfranchisement of the laboring man was won within the trades unions of this country or of England. "Labor has succeeded, but on lines of peace. There is a moral right to enforce the text 'Do unto others as they should do unto you," and vice versa. • When . Pullman starved the women and children, labor could not sleep. The church slept; the political j parties slept, the government of the nation, the state, the city slept, but ! labor awoke. When the juries at j Homestead one after another brought in their verdicts of acquittal for the men who resisted armed invasion by driving Pinkertons away, they con- firmed once more the sacred rights of liberty handed down by our forefath- J ers. We talk about, the shame of slavery. But the greatest shame that . has ever sat upon this republic is the • present.., incarceration of American , workmen at Woodstock, who-strove to ; aid and uplift their fellows." After .the speeches refreshments were | served, 'and then the hall was cleared I for dancing. _ ' "";. '• ■ -7r ;1~- ' *"7' Save Vonr Money. ' ,;>i;''Snvc Tfonr Money. !
