F.T. DRY'S BFFAIfIS APPLICATION FOR A RECEIVER FOR THE ONCE RICH MIL WAUKEE AX MADE TO JUDGE WILLIS. ANNA MARIA HI HER MAKES THE MOVE TO SECURE A SMALL SUM. G. L. 11l XX CONSENTS TO ACT. Providing the Court Desires to .Appoint Hlm— Matter Under Consideration. The application of Anna Maria Hu ber for the appointment of a receiver for Frederick T. Day was heard by Judge Willis yesterday. Day was a very wealthy real estate holder and money leaner at Milwaukee prior to June. 1893, when he made an assign ment to William H. Momson, of Mil waukee. Day owned extensive tracts of agricultural and other lands in the states of Wisconsin, lowa. Minnesota and North Dakota, and was reputed to be worth upwards of $1,000,000. In the present case the plaintiff al leges that the defendant is indebted to her in the sum of $686, and that his indebtedness to others aggregates to exceed $300,000; that he is Insolvent, . and an action is pending against him in the court at Wabasha to recover $23,057, and that unless a receiver is appointed this creditor will get a judgment that will become a lien on the property in this state and serve to make him a preferred creditor. Senator Greer, of Lake City, ap peared in behalf of a number of Day's other creditors in the hearing yester day. Eugene Elliott, of Milwaukee, appearing for the assignee, and George L. Bunn, of St. Paul, for the petitioner. Attorney Elliott went on the stand and testified regarding the affairs of Mr. Day. Mr. Elliott placed the value of the real estate in Min nesota at about $50,000 and the per sonal property at about $5,000. He estimated the present value of all Day's property at about $325,000, while the liabilities aggregate about $600,000. Mr. Elliott said it would take a receiver at least a year to get the run of the business so as to be able to handle it properly. It was suggested that if Momson were made receiver it might be sat isfactory to all, but Judge Willis was opposed to naming as a receiver a person who was outside the jurisdic tion of the court in which the action was brought. Then Senator Greer suggested that he thought the ap pointment of Mr. Bunn would be sat isfactory to the creditors he repre sented. Judge Willis asked Mr. Bunn if he would be willing to accept, and he replied that he would if the court saw fit to appoint him. The result was that the court took the matter under consideration for a few days, and in the meantime Senator Greer will consult with his clients relative to the matter. DR. JOHNSON SENTENCED. Judge Kelly Sends Him to Prison for Four Years. Judge Kelly" yesterday sentenced Dr. John F. Johnson to four years in the penitentiary at Stillwater for the crime of which he was convicted a few days ago, the performing of a criminal op eration on Clara Bergh. Johnson was to have been sentenced the day before, but the matter went over until yes terday to give the court time to con- i sider the motion made by Attorney Thompson, for the defense, for arrest | of judgment. Yesterday Judge Kelly ! denied the motion, and then Attorney ! Thompson appealed to the court to | deal leniently with his client because j "the finger of suspicion had never be- j fore been pointed at him." The culprit said a few words in his own behalf, in which he insisted that he was innocent of the crime of which he was convicted. But he said he did not blame the county attorney for the j manner in which he prosecuted him, as it was his duty. He told the court j he is 56 years of age and has been prac ticing for twenty-two years. Judge Kelly thought the jury had dealt leniently with the accused when it refused to convict him of manslaugh ter, and therefore the full limit of the penalty provided for the crime of which he was convicted he did not consider excessive. One of the judges remarked yesterday that the conviction of Lowe and John son is the outcome of a fine piece of criminal prosecution. Lowe was con victed by his own testimony, and the best of it is that that testimony has every indication of being false. Ap parently in his eagerness to clear him self of the crime with which he feared he was going to be charged, Lowe, at the coroner's inquest, testified that he had no interest in the girl further than to have agreed to take care of and fur nish her medical attendance for her during her illness, on the promise that she would pay him well for it. Then the prosecuting attorney came back at him. making his violation of this al leged contract and the death of the girl, through his neglect, the ground for indictment and subsequent convic tion of the accused. Had Lowe told more of the truth had he gone on the stand and confess ed to his previous relations with the girl; that he took her to the hotel and tried to help her out the best way he could, but had no knowledge of any criminal operation, it is very doubtful whether he could ever have been con victed. He certainly could not on the evidence adduced. In the case of Dr. Johnson the evi dence was rather meager, but was so fitted in with the dying statement of the girl, which the prosecuting attor ney managed to get in through the testimony of Dr. Glidden and Lowe, that it made a very strong chain. Despite the great diversity of opin ion among attorneys, and even some of the judges, as to the validity of the verdict convicting Johnson, Judge Kel ly is satisfied beyond all doubt he was correct in charging that manslaughter by the means specified in the Indict ment Includes the crime of which John son has been convicted, and he feels positive the supreme court cannot hold otherwise. The language of the two statutes is almost Identical, only one declares it manslaughter when the wo man dies in consequence of the opera tion.; ; - : .?:\ When Dr. Johnson was being led from the court. room yesterday he was served with a copy of the complaint in a suit begun by the mother of Clara Bergh? to recover $5,000 damages from him for the death of her daugh ter. Johnson merely remarked, on reading the document through: "I have not got any $5,000." - Must Mate Payments. P. T. Kavanagh, as receiver for Thadeus Clancy, was hauled over the coals by Judge Willis yesterday, for his failure to make any payments to the creditors. Kavanagh was cited to THE SAINT PAUL DAILY GLOBE: SUNDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 22, 1895. TWENTY-FOUR PAGES. appear and show cause why he hac not made the payments, and his ex planation not being satisfactory, he was directed to pay over forthwith or stand charged with contempt. EXPRESS CASE ARGUED? Attorney Davis Hulmcm the Tech nical Point Stated. The application of Attorney General Childs for a writ of mandamus to com pel the Adams Express company to re port to the state railroad and ware house commission, was argued before Judge Egan in special term of the*lls trict court yesterday, and taken under consideration. The case was argued on a technicality, however, as the Globe Intimated it would be, and the real merits of the question were scarce ly touch d upon. Attorney Frank Davis, of Minneapolis, appeared for the respondents ami moved that the alternative writ be quashed on the ground that service upon th? company's agent here was not enough. In view of the fact that the concern is a partnership and not an in corporated company. Mr. Davis cited a number of authorities to sustain the contention that the district court could not therefore, acquire jurisdiction, ma s much as the principals are not residents of the state. Attorney General Childs made a counter-motion to have the alternative writ made peremptory, and. in oppo sition to the argument of Mr. Davis, read the law of the state providing that in processes of this kind against com mon carriers, service on th? agent of the company shall be sufficient. Mr. Davis replied briefly that it was not in the power of the legislature to give a state court jurisdiction over a class of cases in violation of the es tablished rules of law. If the legis lature had power to give jurisdiction in this case, it had the same power to give jurisdiction over a man in Cali fornia. "Yes, if he has property in this state," replied the attorney general. "Whether he has property or not, according- to that," retorted Mr. Davis. Judge Egan said he would consider the whole matter carefully. FEDERAL Jl RORS. List Selected to Serve at the Jan uary Term.

Judge Nelson, in the United States court, has filed a decision in the suit of the Wheeler & Wilson Manufactur ing Company vs. William H. Lyon, or i dering judgment for plaintiff in the | sum of $6,729.44 with interest from Dec. j7, 1892. Defendant guaranteed the ! faithful performance of a contract en '■ tered into between plaintiff and one | Frank McCloud, who was its agent for ] the sale of sewing machines in Minne apolis. Upon the termination of the I contract plaintiff claimed that Mc | Cloud was indebted to it in the sum of j $8,636.32, and notified defendant, it j would look to him for payment, which was refused. Suit was instituted, and j resisted on the ground that defendant had been released as surety. The court i holds that defendant was not released, but that certain items are not included; in the guaranty, and renders judgment as stated. - ... INDICTMENT NOLLED. F. M. Andrews Discharged and Then Rearrested. F. M. Andrews, the man indicted for selling a mortgaged bicycle, succeeded i in having the indictment nolled yes terday, Judge Kelly granting the mo tion of his attorney, John Ives, to have Andrews discharged because the instrument signed by him when he purchased the wheel was not a chattel mortgage but a contract of sale. There upon County Attorney Butler moved to have a nolle prosequi entered in the case and the motion was granted. But Andrews was. imply jumping from the frying pan into the fire, for, as he walked from the court room a free man, Deputy Sheriff Kinney was wait ing with open arms to receive him as soon as he got outside the door. A new warrant had been sworn out charging Andrews with grand larceny in the second degree. GRANTS A REHEARING. Judge Nelson Modifies the Pio neer Thresher Injunction. In the case of Henry B. Lowe against the Pioneer Thresher company, of Fari bault, Judge Nelson In the United States court has made an order modi fying the injunction Issued by him to restrain the company from disposing of its plant to certain stockholders and accepting the stock in payment there for, but the modification depends upon the showing made at another hearing to be held on Dec. 24. It will be re membered from the story published in ? the G lob cat the time Judge Nelson filed his decision not long ago, that ! Lowe charged the officers of the com pany with attempting to defraud the ' minority stockholders, and Judge Nel son In his decision sustained this con tention. But from the representations ? made since, the court seems to be in . cllned to the opinion that the object of the deal was to secure money with ■ which to pay the debts of the company, ? and it is this that has induced him to * grant a rehearing. ; WILLS FILED FOR PROBATE. 1 ■_ -Z. ??.--; * Estates of J.

GLEE CLUB MEN ENTERTAIN.' A Dance for Their Fair Friends at New Columbia Hall. A grand ball was given by the Twin City Glee club at New Columbia hall,, corner West Seventh and Walnut streets, last night. That the glee club is a popular organization in St. Paul was shown by the largo number of peo ' pie who patronized last night's event. Fully 200 young people were upon the floor during the evening, all of whom thoroughly enjoyed the pleasures of the ball. The success of the event is largely attributable to the work of Charles L.'Herberich, Jack Sauerwein and Joe Witha, who constituted the committee on general arrangements. The music for the dances was furnish ed by Knaak's orchestra. LI lilts WINS OUT. Wins One Case of Alleged Liquor Selling,-. Frank A. Luhrs, who conducts a club for horsemen and others at the Kittscndale stables and whose trial by jury began Friday afternoon in the municipal court, was yesterday ac quitted. He will be tried Jan. 10 on a similar charge. H. J. Knoles, charged by his mother in-law- with abusive language, and, al leged, in addition, to nave failed in maintaining his family, ' was dis charged by Judge Twchy. Knoles agreed to moderate his laniguage and do more for his wife and child. R. W. Neil, a colored man of un enviable ways, and Thomas Morris, said to be an ex-convict, were each i sent to the workhouse for sixty days on a charge of vagrancy. Frank Gecnmel was convicted of stealing a five-pound jar of bu.ttea from the store of a grocer on Dayton's bluff, and was sent to Como for thirty days. He had been arrested by Officer Moran. Peter Klein's case was continued un til tomorrow. -He "was charged with reckless driving, having almost run over a woman at Seventh and Waba sha streets^ F. N. Andrews, who was acquitted by the district court of selling a mort gaged bicycle, was again charged in the municipal court with grand larc eny in the second degree. This is simply an altered charge for selling the same bicycle, which Andrews is said to have bought on the install ment plan and sold before he had paid for it in full. Andrews was sent back to jail in the absence of a $500 bond. He will bo again arraigned Jan. 3. VERDICT FOR PLAINTIFF. Suit Goes Against Tains Bixby and Mullen. In the suit of the Commercial Bank of St. Paul, to recover from J. H. Mullen and Tarns Bixby $5,550 on a note given by R. C. Elliott, In which they joined, the jury in Judge Otis' court yesterday returned a verdict for $5,342 in favor of the plaintiff. It took almost a week to try the case. The contention of Mul len and Bixby was that it was simply an accommodation note, and that an extension of time for payment had been granted without notice being served on these two defendants. In a special verdict the jury finds contrary to the contention of the defendants on every proposition. Farnham Gels the Papers. Judge Kerr yesterday heard, and granted the motion for an order to compel the Security Trust company, as assignee, to turn over to C. W. Farnham, receiver, all the books, pa pers, etc., belonging to the St. Paul Park Improvement company, Insolv ent. The plaintiff in the action under which the receiver was appointed Is the London & Northwest American Mortgage company. Sunday- and Ea rly Closing.

Losses Were Soon Regained. CHICAGO, Dec. 21.— Fluctuations in the local stock market were even more violent than yesterday. The market opened weak and excited, and the mar ket for a short time had nearly the proportions of a panic. The low fig. tires, however, proved too tempting for the bear contingent, and large covers ing by shorts jumped the stocks in some instances: three points at a time, nearly all of the earlier losses being re gained. r mECURE. PYRAMID PILE CURE CURES PILES PERMANENTLY BY CUR ING THE CAUSE. Remarkable Remedy Which Is Bringing Comfort to Thous ands of Sufferers. Probably half the people who see this article suffer from piles. It is one of the commonest diseases and one of the most obstinate. People have it for years and just because it Is not im- j mediately fatal they neglect it. Care lessness causes no end of suffering. Carelessness about so simple a thing as piles has often caused death. Hem orrhages occur from no apparent cause and loss of blood causes death. Hem orrhages occur during surgical treat ment, often causing death. Piles are simple in the beginning and easily cured. They can be. cured even in the worst stages, without pain or loss of blood, quickly, surely and com pletely. There is only one remedy that will do it— Pyramid Pile Cure. It allays the inflammation imme diately, heals the Irritated surface, and, with continued treatment, reduces the swelling and puts the membranes into good, sound, healthy condition. • The cure is thorough and permanent. Here are some voluntary and unso licited testimonials we have lately re ceived: Mrs. M. C. Hinkly, 601 Mississippi street, Indianapolis, Ind., says: Have been a sufferer from the pain and an noyance of Piles for fifteen years, the Pyramid Pile Cure and Pyramid Pills gave me immediate relief and In a short time a complete cure. Major Dean, of Columbus, Ohio, says: I wish to add to the number of cer tificates as to the benefits derived from the Pyramid Pile Cure. I suffered from piles for forty years and from itching piles for twenty years, and two boxes of the Pyramid Pile Cure has effectual ly cured me. :?; r - Most druggists sell Pyramid Pile. ; Cure or will get it for you If you ask. them to.

WASHINGTON, Dec. 21— Though none of the Minnesota members of congress were given chairmanships, they received ' from Speaker ' Reed the appointments they most desired, and hence there is rejoicing in Min nesota headquarters tonight. Con gressman Kiefer was placed on the committee on public buildings and grounds and upon the committee on alcoholic liquor traffic. He was espe cially desirous of being on the for mer, because it will enable him to secure an extra appropriation of $200,000 for the St. Paul public build ing. Congressman Tawney will take another step into prominence by rea son of his having been placed on the committee on ways and means, the most important committee in the house. Congressman Towne has reason to be proud over his appoint ment to membership on the commit tee on rivers and harbors. Con gressman Eddy goes on the com mittee on Indian affairs and mines and mining, both of which appoint ments he desired. He will be enabled to look after the interests of his state in Indian matters, while his position on the mines and mining committee is an enviable one. Con gressman Fletcher may possibly har bor some dissatisfaction over his failure to receive .the chairmanship of the committee on interstate and foreign commerce, which went to Col. Hepburn, of lowa, but he is given second place on the commit tee, and says he is content. Con gressman McCleary is appointed to membership on the committee on banking and currency and the com mittee on labor, both of which are | desirable. In addition to being placed on the ways and means committee, Congressman Tawney is given mem bership on the committee for re form of the civil service. HOUSE COMMITTEES. The , Speaker's .

WASHINGTON, Dec. 21.— sug gestion has been made to Secretary Herbert by the naval bureau chiefs, that congress be requested to immedi ately authorize the amendment of the last naval act so as to permit the de partment to contract for the building of six battleships, instead of the two provided for. It is urged that, in view of the low figures of the bids received at the recent opening, it would be greatly in the interest of economy to . accept all of the bids, and according to I this plan the Newport News company J would be given the contract for two of the ships, the Union Iron Works, of San Francisco, the contract for two, i and the Cramps also a contract for I two. All of the ships would be of the Kearsage type, with double turrets and thirteen-inch guns. The cost of the six ships at the outside, and there is rea son to believe that the bidders would I still further scale down their figures, ( would be $10,440,000, exclusive of armor, whereas the last congress fixed the limit of cost of but two ships with armor at $8,000,000. The necessary ar- i mor would cost about three or four ■ millions additional. Secretary Herbert has the matter under consideration. BERING SEA REGULATIONS Not Materially Different- From Last Year's. WASHINGTON, Dec. 21.— secre- ' tary of the treasury has completed and signed new sealing regulations for the government of American vessels during the coming sealing season in Bering sea. The regulations do not differ materially from those in force . last year except that hereafter vessels ' entering Bering sea will be required to stop at Unalaska or Altou and there i have their "arms sealed up, and they ' may leave their arms at these points In charge of customs officers. They will also be required to display two vertical lights at night time. As Great Britain has declined to join ■ the United States in establishing pny J regulations for the government of their vessels, those just completed by ! the secretary only apply to American ' sealers. If, however, Canadian and other British 'vessels' violate the re- ? strlctions of the Paris award they will j be dealt with on discovery, as provid ed in that award. "CUBANS CALL ON OLXEY. I But Its Not a Good Time to Talk of . Recognition. j ■: WASHINGTON, Dec. 21.— Secretary ! Olney today gave a brief personal au- | dience to Senor Palma, head of the • Cuban revolutionary party in this j country; his secretary, Senor Quesada, I and' Horatio Rubens, of New York. The party stated that they had called ( simply to pay their respects to Secre- • tary Olney and that their visit had absolutely no significance. In view of - the declarations in the president's mes- ■ sage to congress, of his intention to • observe strictly the requirements of „ neutrality and the conditions of our re lations with Great Britain, it is believ ed that the present was not regarded as an opportune time to broach the question of recognition of the Cuban insurgents. Senor Palma returned to New York this afternoon. Lowest From Seattle. WASHINGTON, Dec. Bids were today opened at the treasury depart ment for the construction of the rev enue steamer "Golden Gate." There were four bids, of which that of Moran Bros. & Co., of Seattle, Wash., at $3S,- V 65, was the lowest. DISTRICT COURT.

LONDON, Dec. 21.— Public attention here is almost entirely diverted from the political to the financial aspect of the Venezuelan situation. The rumor circulated in this city, that the Roth schilds had decided to immediately] with draw £5,000,000 ($25,000,000) from Amer ica, is attracting great attention, but the Rothschilds stated today that this report, as well as the report of the collapse of negotiations for a United States loan, were utterly untrue, and that no negotiations were pending re garding a loan, and no withdrawals of gold from the United States had been ordered on account of the Rothschilds. Morgans, Brown & Shipley, Morton & Rose and a number of other leading bankers, and especially those con nected with the United States, gen erally regarded the situation as being more favora,ble. The head of one prominent banking firm said: y "It seems that the political question Is now laid at rest by the authorization of the appointment of a commission of sensible men. who will have time to make their influence felt. My tele grams show no notices of withdrawals for boarding. I am satisfied that noth ing serious will happen." The manager of a house whose In fluence is felt in every big financial transaction remarked: "If Europe in vestors take everything seriously there is no knowing where the decline will stop. But the outlook is somewhat ! more favorable today. After all, the ! merchants and bankers must make j their influence felt, and we have mdi cations that the really serious business , men of America are anxious to undo the harm the jingoes have done." The stock exchange opened with a tendency to panic. All classes of se curities were freely offered, foreign government securities were heavy and ; the American market was quite tlisor i ganized. In fact, it was difficult to I obtain quotations. Soon after the I market opened Milwaukee fell 6; j Louisville, i: Canadian Pacific, 2 1 -4. ! and Denver preferred, 3,4- This was i followed by a partial recovery, and I business closed steadier. There was a j recovery from the worst points I reached, though the prices were below I those cf last evening. The general j feeling on the exchange was that it I will be a difficult task to restore the • confidence of ordinary investors in | American securities. Most of the : prominent newspapers publish com ! paratlve tables showing great differ i ence between the prices of American I stocks before President Cleveland's ' message on the Venezuelan question , was sent to congress and the prices to , day. American securities were largely • dealt in on the street after the close, i and a better tendency was noticed. j The official finish prices were fully I maintained on more reassuring re ports from New York. !
