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.
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
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---..'" ** -

The sale of seats has been much
greater than was expected, and has
not been confined to any section of the

Confined to Routine Business—.
The Iron Shutter Causes
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
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.
Over the Dead Body of Clara'
Hei-Kl-— vest i •*..■< Secret.
The coroner's jury sworn in Mon

Coroner Whitcomb will secure the
presence of all interested parties. It
is probable that the inquest will not
be open to the general public.
Oscar Bergh, the brother of Clara,
was described in yesterday's Globe

sires that it be understood that he
himself is an employe at the present
time of the Smith & Farwell com
pany, while Oscar Bergh is not con
nected with the same firm, but has
been, Mr. Burg believes, in the em

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
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
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
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

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
Seibert's band will continue to be
the musical attraction at Como every
afternoon and evening of the present
week. Prof. Seibert's organization is
doing some especially commendable
work at that beautiful out-of-doors re-
sort, as may be seen from the follow-
ing programme to be rendered this
evening: .*., •■

Of Council*. 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."
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.

At the Spiritualist Camp Meeting:
At the S-iiritnnlist Camp Meeting
■ Mrs. • Richmond's Lectures.
; To visit the Spiritualists' camping
ground near Lake Como yesterday was
to be convinced that the ardor of the
.believers in the faith was . strong
enough to withstand any chilly blast
that might be encountered, for the
number of visitors was by no means
diminished by the chilly weather. In
the afternoon many listened to a good
lecture upon the"Liberalism of the
Day," by W. H. Back, a young but
very earnest advocate of the cause.
Special preparations are in progress
to accommodate the crowds expected
Wednesday and Sunday afternoons,
when .. Mrs. Cora L. V. Richmond, of
Chicago, will speak, these two lee-
tures completing her engagement in
the Northwest. Mrs. Richmond; lee-
tures at 2:30 this afternoon, and at 4:30
she gives one of her great tests.

* The journeymen barbers' union j
of St. Paul held open house last '
night, and a very large audience j
congregated in . the large hall at !
labor headquarters for the event, j
The occasion was the conferring of I
honorary membership upon Hon. 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
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. Here in St. Paul the
boys would soon ask the public to

! give them two evenings in the week
to themselves, so that the shops
might be closed at 6:30. Speaking ot
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'
