ft. , — LAW Of 1891 VOID SO FAR AS IT RELATES TO TAX ING BUILDING AND LOAN AS SOCIATIONS. TAXES MUST *BE EQUAL, WHICH -WOULD BE IMPOSSIBLE UNDER THE PROVISIONS OF THAT ACT. ..•■ . ,'S <y •■> -: ?... " VERY IMPORTANT DECISION Handed Dona by the Supreme Court Yei(tt*rau}*- on the Sub ject—Other Findings. Chief Justice Start, of the supreme court! handed down v four decisions yesterday, the one in which the state of Minnesota is respondent and the Pioneer Savings and Loan company appellant being of considerable inter est to building. and loan associations in general. \ The decision holds that the law of'lS9l, providing that- the j shares of stock, where no loan or ad vance has been made "on them by the association, may be assessed against the owners in the, counties to which they belong, is unconstitutional, as it violates the provision which re quires that all property shall be taxed equally. ■• The decision is in the case of* the Pioneer ■:• Savings and Loan company, which made a return on office, fixtures, etc., for $500. The assessor raised them- to more than $45,000; and the court reduced this by $10,000. leaving more than $35,000 against the company. The syllabus follows: State of Minnesota, respondent, vs. Pioneer Savings and Loan Company, appellant. 1. ITsld, that S. 35, Ch. 236, Laws 1889, and S. S. 34, 35, Ch. 131. Laws 1891, are unconstitutional, for they exempt from taxation in this state a substantial portion of the personal property of building and loan associations doing business within and without this state, contrary to the provisions of S. 3, ar ticle 9 of the constitution. Order affirmed, '-*.*.. —Start, C. J. Francis Morrison et al., appellants, vs. St. Paul & Northern Pacific Rail vtuy Company, respondent. Syllabus— The plaintiffs conveyed to the defendant by deed a right of way along the street in front of their lots. The deed contained the agreement "that in case the second party shall sell the above mentioned right of way to any other company the party of the first part shall be entitled to receive one-half of the purchase money." The defendant -leased to another company its entire railway property, including this right of way, reserving rent pay able quarterly, for the term of nine hundred and ninety-nine years. Held, construing the agreement- with reference to the allegations of the an swer as to the Inducement and consid eration for the execution of the deed, and the terms and conditions of the lease, that the latter was not a sale of the right of way within the meaning of the contract. •-• : '• ' : Order affirmed. —Start, C. J. Robert W. Turnbull, appellant, vs. Jo seph Crick et al., respondents. 1. The jurisdiction of courts with equity powers to entertain bills of dis covery has been abrogated by our civil code of procedure and the several stat utes giving a party to an action the right to call his adversary as a wit ness, and compel . the . production of books and documents In his possession. 2. An action to cancel a contract, document, or record on the ground of fraud cannot be maintained where the plaintiff has a speedy and adequate remedy at law. Held, applying this rule that this action cannot be main tained to cancel the records of scales and measurements of logs of a certain mark in the office of the surveyor gen eral of logs and lumber or his certif icate thereof, on the ground that they are untrue and fraudulent. '.--- Judgment affirmed. —Start, C. J. Adeline Gurney, Henry D. F. Gurney, by Hazesn M. Parker (his guardian ad litem), appellants, vs. The Minne apolis Union Elevator Company, re spondent .- • . 1. Scott vs. St. Paul & Chicago Rail way Company. 21 Minn., 322, followed; as to the effect of a provision in the charter of a railway company author izing it to take an "absolute fee" In lands condemned for public purposes. 2. The erection and operation of a public elevator and warehouse, upon land acquired by a railway company by condemnation for public purposes, either by itself or its lessee. Is neither a misuser nor an abandonment of its easement in the land- occupied by such structure, and the owner in fee cannot m? in tain ejectment for the land so oc ci'nipd.

FEATURE.. •_"** HIGH SCHOOL ADMISSION. Col. dough and Sunt. Gilbert Dlh _ .-* ug-rec on the Necen*«ity for nation*. . Education of the rising generation at the expense of the tax-payers was the subject that confronted the Par -1 ker investigating committee yester day afternoon. There were present to enlighten the committee upon this topic President Abbott, of the board of school inspectors; Superintendent .of Schools Gilbert, School Inspector Scholle and Secretary, Angell, of the school board. Owing to the magni tude of the department the commit-' tee did not make much headway yes terday, but succeeded in getting fair ly started on its tour of inspection. Most of the time was occupied in I. going over the reports of the past .year, with the purpose of explaining them to the committee. Only one im portant fact was revealed, .and that ■ is that the school of mechanical arts, j formerly known as the "manual, training school," was the most costly feature in the school system, as the .attendance is disproportionate to the 'expense of maintaining it, which, last year, amounted to $17,195.45, whereas the average dajly attend ance was only 148, making the total cost of maintenance about $115 per pupil per year. President Abbott, of the school board, explained to the committee the nature of the manual training school and the work of the pupils. Dr. \ Abbott admitted that it was the most extravagant department In the , stem, and said that he -had. advo cated dropping it last year. If the at tendance is not materially increased this season it will be abolished. All agreed that the school was a most desirable adjunct to the system, but that it ought to be done away with * if the attendance remained so light. !,. .Supt. Gilbert, in answer to Col. Clough's question, said that, besides the Central high school, branch high schools were conducted at the Cleveland and Humboldt schools. In response to the inquiry, why there were so many high schools, Dr. Ab bott answered that the large area of the city demanded the establishment of. additional high schools. ' Col. Clough questioned Dr. Abbott and Supt. Gilbert concerning the work of the high school teachers and the time it occupied. He was in formed that they were on duty ; from 8:30 a. m. to 1 p. m. arid spent four hours a day in teaching. They were also obliged to spend time in pre paring for their recitations, j In the lower grades the teachers were fn attendance five and one-half hours. .Supt. Gilbert, said that the total number of sittings. in the high school amounted to 950. No examination had been made to ascertain whether the number of sittings could be in creased. : The proceedings were enlivened at this stage by a difference .of opin ion between Col. Clough and Supt. Gilbert regarding the value and ne cessity of examinations of all appli cants for admission to the . high school. In response to Col. Clough's inquiry regarding examinations of applicants, Supt. Gilbert informed the committee that all graduates of the grade schools were admitted to the high school without further ex amination. They were examined twice a year in the grade schools, and their diplomas from ' these schools admitted them to the high schools. But all applicants not grad uates of a grade school were exam ined in the various common branches such as arithmetic, geography, read ing, writing, English grammar, his tory, etc., in which subjects a cer tain proficiency was required. ; Col. Clough criticised the policy of admitting the graduates of the grade schools without a special examina tion. He insisted that, inasmuch as the taxpayers supported the high school, that it should not pay for the education of any child not en titled to receive it, and the only way to ascertain whether the child was competent to receive it was by the examination system. He was op posed to admitting pupils to the high school on a theory. . * '"But the pupils are not admitted on a theory," said Supt. Gilbert. "I am certain that all the pupils of the high school are better off where they are." . ' '. Col: Clough rejoined: "I believe in high schools, but I am not In favor of giving people the higher education who • cannot receive it. Therefore the test for admission to a public school ought to be exacting and searching. The real test is the ex amination." - . Assemblyman Lewis— Have you ever known an examination, super intendent, to work an injustice upon a pupil? Supt. Gilbert— Yes, sir, I have fre quently, in the case of nervous tem peraments. After all, what does an examination amount- to? The prep aration for it results in nothing but a system of examining. Why, there are tutors in the big colleges who can prepare an applicant in two weeks to pass the examination for admission." Supt. Gilbert pointed out the re cent growth of the sentiment against examinations as affording the true test of knowledge. He added that Harvard, Yale and Princeton were the only colleges in the country that would not admit a graduate of the St. Paul high school on the strength Mrs. Wlnslow's Soothing- Syrup Is an OLD and WELL-TRIED REM EDY, and for over FIFTY YEARS has been used by millions of mothers for their CHILDREN while .

Gen. Becker Denied- Some State ments- About the Engagement."' ** Considerable . comment was caused yesterday by the' manner in* which the Minneapolis papers treated the retire ment of David B.

It was stated almost without ex- : ception that while ' his; patronage in" _ Minneapolis had been poor enough, he lectured to empty benches In this city. ; : ,It appears that the only city which he ' visited where he was received by- a large and representative audience was St. Paul. In Minneapolis the published" ' receipts amounted to. but $268, while iri the People's church the. senator spoke in the presence of between 1,200 and 1,500 people, many jof them of oppo site political belief, and nearly all rep-! . resentative St. Paul men. .'..■:" In; Minneapolis, Duluth, and even In i' the Eastern cities visited, „jthe audi-'' ences were small, it is said, owing to bad management, and ' citizens -here] \ feel that in justice to themselves and j .

"I believe' It -. Is trUe that Mr. Hill lost money in every ' city he lectured; in except St. Paul. He was. to receive $400 for each lecture, and I am told the poor houses in other places were due to the poor management of. the Minneapolis men who got him to come out here and then found themselves •unable to live up to their bargain. Should Mr. Hill ever come to St. Paul to make a political speech, as he part ly told me he might, there Is no audi ence room in the city which can hold the people who will go to hear him. "I think it is due him, as well as our own people, to have the true facts known regarding the efforts of the! Minneapolis papers to belittle him and indirectly defend some of their citi zens, who appear to have made rather poor managers." •"*-.".. * ' f<Off tor the Hanks)' V_> Depicts life on the seashore to perfec tion.'
