That Somebody Might Be Made the
Subject of au Investiga
Judge Otis heard a case yesterday
that had a suspicious look, so much so
that in directing findings the court
strongly intimated that somebody
might very justly be made the subject
of an investigation. The case was the
suit of the First National Bank of
Hastings against Ezra F. Lambert,
Lambert Brothers, Frank and May
Brackett, the Second National Bank of
St. Paul et al. From the evidence
brought out in court, it appears that
something like a year ago the Brack
etts gave Ezra Lambert notes for
$5,300, secured by two mortgages.
Lambert assigned them to the First
National Bank of Hastings, as col
lateral for a loan of a like amount, ne
gotiated for him by a man named
Foulke, who acted as his agent. Later
on, according to the testimony given
yesterday, he went to Brackett and
told him the $3,000 note was irregular
in some respect and had him sign two
new notes for $1,500 each. On the back
of these notes Lambert wrote an en
dorsement to the effect that they were
secured by the same mortgage that
was back of the note of like denomina
tion already in the hands of the Has
tings bank. He then took them to the
Second National Bank of St. Paul and
put them up as collateral for another
The notes held by the Hastings bank
were not paid and foreclosure proceed
ings were begun. The Second National
bank stepped in, claiming that it was
the holder of the note secured by one
of these mortgages, and the result was
that the Second National bank was
made one of the defendants to the suit
for the purpose of having settled in
court at the same time all the ques
tions involved.
In the hearing yesterday, the Brack
etts claimed that they had no knowl
edge of the purpose of Lambert in
having the two second notes signed.
Lambert's testimony was rather frag
Judge Otis ordered findings in favor
of the Hastings bank, with a provision
that whatever surplus might remain
from the sale of the property after
paying the two first notes should be
applied toward the payment of those
held by the Second National bank. He
also intimated that a criminal proceed
ing against somebody might be in

the municipal court yesterday on the
charge of assault and battery. The
complainant was Annie English, the
defendant's wife. Mrs. English testi
fied that her husband had struck her
in the face with his fist with sufficient
force as to render her insensible. The
assault took place Wednesday evening
at 610 Robert street, where the couple
reside. English admitted striking his

Deputy Sheriff .Captures Part of a
Dry Goods Cargo.
A box of goods marked "P. Mash,
Minneapolis," was seized at the Milwau
kee freight house by Deputy Sheriff
Goss yesterday, on writ of v replevin,
sworn out by L. W. French, receiver
for Kaufman & Yezner, the Ely mer-
chants who were under indictment up
to a short time ago on a charge of
grand larceny, on the ground that they
had been securing goods from St. Paul
merchants on false pretenses. It is
claimed the box seized yesterday con-
tains some of the goods that had been
purchased, but just where it came from
Deputy Sheriff Goss did not seem to
know, or at least, if he did, he did not
feel like telling. He said that St. Au
bin & Dion had carted the box to the
freight house yesterday morning, but
no one appeared with a shipping bill.
presumably because it was discovered
that the officers were onto the move-
ments that were being made. Had the
box been shipped, it would have been
followed up in hopes of- getting track
of some more of the goods that, it is
claimed, have gone the same way.
The day before two boxes of 'the
goods were found at 450 Charles street.
T. G. Helle, the owner of the.-building,
was ignorant of the contents of the
boxes or anything in connection with
them, further than that they had been
left there by his permission by another
person. This other person, it is claim-
ed is a relative of the Ely merchants.
The two boxes have 'been -taken on a
writ of replevin sworn out by Mr.
French. -- -*-••"**
Track Was Not Fenced.
Judge Willis and a jury are hearing the suit
of Fred Schroeder to recover from the St.
Paul & Duluth road $300 damages for the loss
of two horses that were killed by a train near
Little Canada last summer. The plaintiff
claims the track was not fenced, and the
defendant answers that it could not be fenced
at that point furnish, the necessary ac-
commodations for the handling of the traffic.
It further alleges. that the horses were killed
because they had been tied to a log that was
so light they, pulled it on to the track, and,
therefore, the negligence was on the side of
the owner.

Mary Clearly^ .'suit to recover $1,000 dam-
ages from Owen King and George W. Smith
is on trial in Judge Brill's .court. The plain
tiff claims the defendant unlawfully ejected
her and her household goods from a building
of which King was the owner. The defense
is that she took possession of the building
without permission of the owner. The suit
has been . dismissed as to defendant Smith,
who is a policeman.
Loss of a Leg:.
Frank Zwlrn's suit to recover from»the Chi
cago, Milwaukee- & St. Paul and the Chicago,
St. Paul, Minneapolis & Omaha road $15,000
damages for the loss of a leg is on trial in
Judge Egan's court. The plaintiff's leg was
cut off by being run over, by an engine on
the levee near the foot of Jackson street.
While walking along" the street his foot caught
in a switch-bar, throwing him down on the
track. The . accident occurred in 1890, the
plaintiff being then a minor.

nothing of snecial interest in any of the cases,
desertion being the principal allegation in all

cover $332 damages from the Northwestern
road for the delay of two car loads of stock
shinped to Chicago a day or so before the big
strike in 1594, the jury in Judge Brill's court
yesterday returned a verdict in favor of the
defendant by direction of the court, the de-
fendant proving that it was unable to get the
cars through by reason of the strike.

Gatiing: Grin Went to the Senior Bat-
"-• tery Captain. , *>y
A morning paper yesterday-devoted a
column or more to explaining how Adjt.
Gen. Muehlberg "- has M Ignored Maj.
Libbey, of the battalion of. artillery,
and snubbed the members of Battery
A, by presenting a gatiing gun received
from Washington to Battery B, of Mm
neapolis. \- - -----;—
- attention was paid to the story
by the members of either company,
and it is considered merely as an effort
to stir up strife' in the national guard.
Adjt. Lambert, of the battalion, char-
acterized the tale as a rank fake from
end to end, -without- the semblance of
foundation in fact.
"It is- made out of whole cloth," he
said, "and not one statement contained
is true, or anything but ridiculous. In
a nutshell, it is expected that two gat-
iing guns are forthcoming, and the next
one that comes will go to Battery A
in St. Paul."
It is learned that the arrival of the
gun in question was something of a
surprise, and the adjutant general
gathered, from a general-conversation
with Maj. Libbey, that the latter con-
sidered it was only deference due Capt.
Bennett, who senior captain in the
- battalion, to" send the gun to him, hence
it was done. ..Mai LiJJbex*jAdjt. Lam-
bert, Capt. Appleby and other mem-
bers of the St. battery, visited
Minneapolis last night, and after the
new piece!- had been duly Inspected,
and . the battery drilled, the visitors
were thoroughly, yet Informally enter-
tamed by the Minneapolis-guardsmen,
who agree that the story was the work
of some disgruntled outsider.

Half a hundred prominent real. estate
Half a hundred prominent real estate
owners met yesterday afternoon at the.
Commercial club to perfect an organi
zation for mutual protection and ben-"
efit. "William- Dawson was . chosen
chairman. The duties of secretary
were entrusted to Oscar Taylor.
Ferdinand Willius read the report of;.
his committee on organization. The
committee recommended articles of as-
sociation and by-laws for "The St.
Paul Association of Real Estate own-
ers." The general purpose of the as-
sociation was defined to be "to promote : •
the real estate interests in the city of
St. Paul, to protect those interests
against the evils of overtaxation, im-
proper valuation, and the -various other
abuses to which they are subject;
furthermore to co-operate with other" '
associations engaged in the effort to
secure honest, efficient and economical
j city and county governments, and
I further to secure as far as practicable
I a consolidation of county and city of-
fices." Any person is eligible to mem-
bership who holds in his own name
the title to any real estate in this city.
The administration of the associaton
will be vested in the usual officers and y
an executive committee of nine mem-
bers. The annual meeting will take
place on the second Monday of Jan-
vary. ' '-i-yhi
When, on motion of Josiah Fairchild,
the articles of association had been 1
unanimously adopted, Mr. Willius read
the by-laws, which were also accepted
without dissent. The by-laws pre-
scribe regular meetings on the second
Monday of January, April, July and
October; special meetings on the usual
conditions; annual membership dues of
$1; and the presence of fifteen members
to constitute a quorum. Assessments
are prohibited.
Rush P. Wheeler then proceeded to .
nominate the officers and an executive
committee, but Gen. Bishop suggested
the impropriety of conducting an elec
tion until members were duly quali
fied. Col. Newport suggested taking
names before the votes were cast, and
the chair thought that gentlemen not
intending to become members had bet-
ter rise and give their names.
At this Assemblyman Reardon arose '
and asked "if that wasn't rather arbi- ;
trary." The assemblyman didn't know
whether he would become a member.
And he had heard some one say that
the intention of the association was to
protect the property; of . members by
reducing, their assessments regardless
of the .assessments •of other" citizens.
Again, at the preliminary meeting,
some one else had said that, if the new
association was to attack the jobbers
who had been accused of making their
own assessments, then the association
should- be discouraged. Mr. Reardon's ,
mind, altogether, was filled full of
doubts. He had expected to hear-
speeches, which he hadn't heard, ex-
plaining, the object of the association
which he didn't know.
Mr. Fairchild asked, that the section
of the articles defining the object of
the association be read again. Hearing
the section a second time Mr. Reardon
thought that it "about covered the
ground," but he didn't want to be party
to any such schemes as the jobbers-
were accused of.
After a few words from the chair it
was agreed that each person intending
to become a member sign the roll then
and there and deposit his membership
fee. Despite the real estate depression
every one present, including Mr. Rear-
don, seemed blessed with a large silver
coin. The roll signed, Mr. Wheeler re-
newed his nominations, which were i
unanimously accepted, constituting J.
C. Richardson president of the new
body; Maurice Auerbach, vice presi-
dent; William C. Reed, secretary Os- '
car L. Taylor, treasurer; J. W. Bishop, -
Gardner S. Moore, J. H. Weed,- H S
Fairchild, Luther S. Cushing. 'Ed j'
Schurrneier, H. T. Drake, R. m New-
port and T. B. Scott, executive com-
Mr Dawson, who had been requested"'
to address the meeting, then gave sev
eral practical suggestions in further-
ance of the association's objects. Mt - *
Dawson said: . -
At the present time the most important
thing is to have a fair assessment for the city.
I. believe Mr Seng is very anxious to have '
the work well done, but he has a difficult task
to perform. When I was on the state equaliza
tion board I suggested that a large map of
Minnesota, showing the average assessment "
per acre for each county, would enable one
to make more valuable comparisons than col-
umns of prepared lists. The suggestion, car-
ried out, proved so satisfactory that I called
Mr. Seng attention to the matter. He has
agreed to have prepared a similar large map
of this city which will indicate the assess-
ment for each lot in St. Paul. Property owners
can then at a single glance, satisfy them-
selves whether they are being assessed higher
than their neighbors or higher than the own-
ers of other property similar to their own.''
Not only will Mr. Seng arrange this map, but
tie will, I am convinced, aid our associationl
in all reasonable ways.
The next thing of importance, in my opin-
ion, Is the question of sidewalks. Cement
sidewalks are much the best where they can -
be afforded, but they are too expensive for
the outlying streets and the small property
holder. The day of the wooden pavement in
fat. Paul has passed away, I hope, never to- -
return. I think the wooden sidewalk should
follow the wooden pavement.
Where cement cannot be afforded I believe
we should use brick. Eighteen brick laid on
their broadsides will lay a sidewalk 1 foot
4 feet wide, 27 brick will lay a 6-foot sidewalk
1 foot, and 36 brick, an 8-foot sidewalk 1 foot.
I inquired of the board of public works to
learn the cost of a 6-foot wooden sidewalk.
They told me the average cost was 32 cents,
and, for an 8-foot sidewalk, 40 cents per run-
ning foot. From the best Information I have
been able to obtain, brick can be laid at 1
cent each, or $10 per thousand. If this is
correct, a 4-foot sidewalk can »be laid for
18 cents per running foot; a 6-foot walk for
27 cents, and an 8-foot walk for 36 cents per
' running foot. The bricks are laid in sand.
The brick sidewalk has a great many ad-
vantages over the wooden sidewalk. In the
first place* it will last probably five times as
long, and, in the second place, If you wish
to widen it, all you have to do is to add
one or two bricks to the width already
laid. :• - y: ;. *-"*.*.-.■" yy y~-- '—'" *
There is another thing we must bear in
mind, and that is the great amount of dam-.'
ages paid for broken and sprained limbs.
From the legal : department of the city I
learned that it has cost St. Paul an average
of $15,000 per annum for damages from acci- '
dents, or supposed accidents, on broken wood-
en sidewalks. Now, $15,000 a year would lay
each year over ten miles of 6-foot side-
walks. * *• j.r.i •
Then, too, I would like to direct the at
• tention of this meeting to the matter of streetl
grading. It has been a great mistake on the
part, of our j city engineering department": to
make the driveways of our streets so wide.
In New York, for instance, at Sixtieth street
and beyond,: one sees very few streets with
- wide driveways. In Italy, France, Germany,
almost everywhere on the continent, the drive-
way, is made only wide enough for .two vehi
cles to pass each other. This rule of a nar-
row roadway should, I think, apply not only;
to country roads, : but to outlying streets ' in
> cities and to-all streets. Indeed, where street
' i cars do not J run and that . are • not business
f thoroughfares. " If ; Summit avenue, for in
[ stance, had a driveway . twenty feet narrower, i
. the avenue would be fully as convenient and
even more; handsome. In general it -seems
to me that the * driveway .: ought .. not to ex-
ceed twenty -.feet, in width, which would afford
ample t space for ■ sidewalks and boulevarding.
lij Here iiv St. Paul we still experience a, degree
of business-depression, but we are no worse
off- than most other Western. cities. 7-Ai gentle-
man- Informed me recently that there are
30,000 vacant houses .Chicago. & A similar
report has come torn Omaha. The only pros-
perous city in th* .West just now Is Kansas
City. It started' on the road :to prosperity
a year or two earfller than we. did, before the
boom, and it broke down a. year or two soon-
er. "*• We have had- eight, -years -of hard tlme*^.
and we are surely eight years nearer to pros-
perity. .-,-.*.. - „ * -
It is estimated that the tax levy of 1895- *"96
will- be reduced ~in round numbers from $1,
- to $1,300,000. This sls $600,000 -or 30
per cent— very nearly one-third. . Add to this
the reductions made in the cost of municipal
lighting,. salaries of officers, etc., and we have
a reduction jof . fully one-third. This reduc
tion will relieve us I all .materially. But
eternal vigllance-tthe price of liberty— eternal
vigilance- alone will -save us from overtaxa
tion. With the - many advantages we have
here, ■ surrounded by a rich agricultural re-
gion, capable of' producing such enormous
crops as those, of* last .year, ..viewing the bril
liant 1 prospects for , renewed immigration, we
have every reason to hope. i The .future de-
pends on ourselves alone. There are waves
of depression and so ' also are , there waves
of prosperity. After one we must expect the
"• . Mr. Dawson's remarks were followed
by applause. .:.r.u.u..i^,, ,„
Gen. Bishop pointed .out that the*
trouble* with -many citizens is that the
do not adhere to their own convictions.
They must know that depressions occur-
periodically and are .scarcely, willing to
admit the fact to each other.
3 "It has been well said," added Gen.
Bishop, "that we \of St. Paul should
reduce the amount which we contribute >
for other citizens towards the . state
taxes. ; "I believe we pay $75,000 more
than our share owing ..to, our property
being over-assessed. j But it Is much
better, I think, to increase our real es
tate values. This can be done, first, by
convincing ourselves -of the truth that
values are too low, . and . second, by
bringing to the city more business men
and more manufactories. It .is .a; mis-
take to complain, as many a carpenter
does, -for instance, that there are too
many carpenters here now. The arri
val" of ' strangers would stimulate busi-
ness and give work to: all. With the
150,000 or 200.000 people who will be here
next fall will come multitudes of young
men looking for a location. The G. A.
R. encampment ought to leave behind
it within a year 25,000 new citizens of
St. Paul." , — •---->• <- ■
When the applause subsided James
K. Humphrey told of the stagnation of
real estate -in Washington, D. C., and
Col. Newport said that while, three
years ago, Kansas City was much dead-
er than St. Paul has ever been, the
real" estate transfers in the Missouri
town -last year were greater than that
of the preceding three years combined.
Real estate has never been so active as
it is now in Philadelphia. Even in Chi
cago; Clark street property had recent
ly sold at prices never brought hereto-"
fore while many now vacant houses in
the Windy- City had ..been built by far-
seeing capitalists, who had . erected'
them* in --advance of the- demand, when
material and labor were to be had at
remarkably cheap rates." ' - * - ■ *--
The meeting closed with a pleasant
prophecy from the chairman of the fu-
greatness of .the combined Twin
The association will hold its next
meeting at the call of the president.
