C rwned an undivided one-half of a certain
tract of land, which was taxed in the name
of his grantors (he never having recorded
his deed), he also held a void tax deed on the
other one-half which was separately taxed
in his name; the tax became delinquent
and judgment was entered for the same;
thereupon he paid the tax on an undivided
one-half, intending to pay it on the former
half, but the treasurer wrote opposite the
entries as to the latter half, "Judgment sat
isfied," the other half was sold at tax sale,
bid in by the state and the words "Bid in by
the state" written opposite the entries as to
that half in the Judgment book; subsequent
ly C took a state assignment of this tax
title, supposing it covered the undivided one
half first above mentioned.
Held, it did not.
Held further, the names given in the tax
proceedings are those of the owners of the
two undivided halves furnished ear marks
by which to distinguish the one-half from
the other.
Judgment affirmed. —Canty, J.
William G. Vent et al., respondents, vs. Du
luth Coffee and Spice Company, appellant.
Syllabus—The plaintiff purchased from the
defendant corporation a number of shares
of its capital stock under an agreement
which provided that at the end of a certain
time he could at his option return the stock
and receive back the purchase price; plaint
iff exercised the option, offered to return the
stock and demanded the purchase price.
In an action to recover such price, held,
the agreement is in the nature of a condi
tional sale with an option to the purchaser
to revoke or rescind, and as between plaint
iff and defendant (the rights of creditors not
being involved), the agreement by the defend
ant to receive back the stock and pay back
the price thereof is not ultra vires.
Order affirmed. —Canty, J.

Electric Company Sues Out a Writ of

the United States circuit court by the Stand

Heilbron to turn over to the company the
assignments of three electrical Inventions.
The petitioner says that Heilbron was former

Henry Huber, a resident of Mankato, was
before Judge Orr yesterday on the charge
of breaking car seals. From Huber's story.
It appeared that he had been drinking with
a numbtr of friends in Mankato Monday night,
and finally found his way to an empty freight
car. where he lay down to sleep. " When he
woke up Huber broke open the car door and
found himself in St. Paul. As he was emerg

ficer Barbeau placed him under arrest. Huber
was held in $100 bail until tomorrow.
Herman Klaus, an old man living on the
West side, was charged with disorderly con
duct by Mrs. Allie Weber, one of his neigh
bors. The case appeared to bo rather mixed,
however, for Mr. Klaus has a son whose
surname is Herman, and it was against the
boy and not the father that the complaint
had been made. Mrs. Weber wanted the
trial to go on just the same, but Judge Orr
dismissed the case as soon as the mistake
was discovered.
Dick Singleton, a colored man living on
Seventh and Wacouta streets, was arraigned
on the charge of disorderly conduct preferred

Cites Law to Sustain the Sacred
Thirst Society.
Mrs. Margaret Kelly, president of the Sa
cred Thirst Total Abstinence society, takes
exception to some of the criticisms of that
society, as follows:
"It has been publicly asserted that the law
upon which was based the Sacred Thirst To
tal Abstinence society resolutions was incor
rectly interpreted, and that, therefore, the
grand jury cannot be charged as therein de
manded. To prove the correctness of that
resolution it is only necessary to quote the
law. The General Statutes, chap. 107, sec.
27, provide that 'it is the duty of the grand
Jury to inquire Into all public offenses.' Sec
tion 23, of the same chapter, states that the
court shall charge the grand jury and 'shall
read to them the provisions of this chapter
from section 27 to section 42,' which applies
to the powers and duties of the grand jury.
Section 37, of the same chapter, provides
tha* 'the grand jury shall inquire into the
wilful and corrupt misconduct in office of
pubic officers of every description in the
county.' By putting these provisions together
we have: The grand jury must inquire into
all public offenses; into any wilful or corrupt
misconduct in office of any public officer, and
the court 'shall read to them' the provisions
of section 37, which requires 'them' to inquire
into any wilful or corrupt misconduct in of
fice of any public officer.
"The General Statutes, chapter 16, section 5,
as amended 1895, chapter 50, provide that
it is the duty of the mayor, city attorney,
chief of police, any policeman, county at
torney, sheriff, or constable, having any
knowledge- of any violation of any law con
cerning the sale of Intoxicating liquors, to
make complaint of such violation as therein
provided. The law of 1887, chapter 6, sec
tion 3, amending the General Statutes, pro
vides that if any mayor, Judge, sheriff, jus
tice, constable, member of the council, coun
ty commissioner or other officer wilfully neg
lects or refuses to perform any duty re
quired of him by the laws regulating the
liquor traffic or the issuance of license
therefor, he shall be deemed guilty of mal
feasance in office, and thereafter be disqual- •
ified from holding the same for the re
mainder of the term, »nd liable on his bond
for not more than five nor less than one
hundred dollars. By these provisions it is
the dutx of sjich officers to make" such, com
plaint, and provides 'a punishment for the
failure to perform such duty.
"The law of IS7S, chapter 75, section 1, and
1895, chapter 90, amending the General Stat
utes, and thereby becoming a part of the
system, provides that the saloons shall be
closed on Sunday, and between 11 p. m.
and 5 a. m., and prohibits sales to minors,
drunkards and intemperate persons, and the
act of 1872, chapter 61, section 4, provides
that violation of these laws are to be pun
ished by indictment. It is an open and no
torious fact that saloons are open on Sun
days and never closed.
"Who is responsible? The courts and the
grand Juries. Will the court charge the
grand Jury? That is the question."
School Board Secretaryship Still In
The board of school inspectors will hold
its monthly meeting today. The election of
a secretary, which has lain upon the table
since the meeting in March, is expected to
still be there at the close of the meeting,
according to one of the Inspectors.
The appointment of teachers will probably
be referred to a special committee, and the
salary list to another.

Fishermen Infrequent In Detroit nnd
Executive Agent Fullerton, of the state
game and fish commission, is in receipt of a
letter from Warden Johnson, whose field of
operations includes the lakes near Detroit,
Becker county, in which the warden states
that there are no traces of fishermen there
this year except the ashes of last year's fires.
At this season last year he had already con
fiscated 13,000 yards of nets. A number of
arrests are being made, however, in other
parts of the state for violation of the laws
against seining.

State's Case Argued In the Supreme
The state's claim for its deposits In the in
solvent City Bank of Minneapolis was argued
before the supreme court yesterday, Attorney
General Childs and his assistant, George B.
Edgerton, appearing in behalf of the state,
while Victor J. Welch and H. P. Roberts, of
Minneapolis, appeared respectively for the
receiver and for the other creditors of the
Dogs Without Owners.
The secretary of the humane society would
like to find the owner of a beautiful female
pug, just found in the rear of Browning
King's store, with a broken leg. If the owner
will apply for it at once it will not be des
troyed. He would also like to find the owner
of a female shepherd dog left in a vacant
house on Temperance street, with seven little
puppies. Not wishing to destroy these ani
mals the secretary asks that the owners apply
for them at once.

Of Topics of Interest to the Liberal
Church as Well as to Public
The union meeting of the Wisconsin and
Minnesota conferences of Unitarian and In
dependent churches held its first session at
Unity church last evening. A brief musical
and devotional service was held, two con
tralto solos being given by Miss Marion Gale,
of Minneapolis, after which the opening ser
mon was delivered by Rev. Charles F. Miles,
of Menomonle, Wis. Dr. Niles' subject was
"The Spirit of Reverence in Modern Life."
He spoke of the differences between men, of
their various conditions and tendencies, and
he said that while we honored Christianity
we should be Just, that before religion was
man was, and that some moat difficult les
sons have been learned outside of Christi-;
anity. He said that all people have some
thing to call forth their reverence, and spoke
of the misdirected tribes and of the extreme
and mistaken reverence of years ago, which
made men leave home and country for the
church and go to absurd extremes in the way
of self torture, excluding every comfort and
luxury, and said that the dark ages were
partly due to this. He said that the battle
of the church had been a battle of man
against nature, and that results prove that
the fight must be met on the broader field.
He said that reverence may still be a
hindrance to progress, and spoke of the
amendment proposed by Mr. Morse, of Mas
sachusetts, to the preamble to the constitu
tion, and asked what would be the result of
the amendment, saying that it would be an
encroachment on freedom of thought. Dr.
Niles also said that the religious sentiments
of today need watching. The following is
the programme for today's meeting:

They Will Encamp at Merrlatn Park
May 26.
It was way back In the 50's, in those days
when traveling was by means of the stage
coach and the prairie schooner, that some of
that people known as Seventh Day Adven
tists, came from Wisconsin and Michigan and
settled in the North Star state, for Minne
sota became a state in 1858. The repre
sentatives of this denomination in this state
are about to convene in their annual con
ference and camp meeting, May 26 to June 8,
at Merrlam Park. During these days the con
ference business, and the various lines of
their work are considered; and the people
feast upon the heavenly manna of the word.
The consistent example of the pioneers In
faithful adherence to the observan«e of the
seventh day of the week as the Sabbath, soon
awakened an inquiry in the minds of neigh
bors which, resulted in securing the services
of Elder Ingraham, of Wisconsin, who after
wards settled near Wasioja. His labors were
put forth in a series of tent meetings in Olm
sted county, and were fruitful in raising up
a church. At a later date, Elder J. N. An
drews, of New York state, scholar and au
thor, who now rests In a grave yard In
Switzerland where he was sent as a laborer
in the gospel work, also spent one season here
with good results.
It was In the year 1861 that this people or
ganized the Minnesota conference of Seventh
daj Adventists. Tho conference was organ
ized with five' churches with three ordained
ministers. But as great possibilities often
cluster around small beginnings, so this
small organization was the nucleus of the
present membership of some 2,500 belonging
to over seventy churches. If these are fully
represented there will be about 200 delegates
on the ground. Besides these there will be
whole families and parts of families, who
make up a population for the tented city of
some ten or twelve hundred.
This people stand upon original principals
of the Baptists as the champions of the
cause of religious liberty in the God given
rights of all men. Therefore they are to
tally opposed to all the BChemes of national
reforms, and their allies to unite religion and
the state. And Mr. Crofta once said that
Seventh-day Adventists scattered more litera
ture than all the National Reformers hosts
put together. This may be accounted for on
the grounds that the working force of the
denomination consists of the whole member
ship of the church. Thus while all are not
ministers, all do preach through the print
ed page, as they have a thoroughly organized
Tract society. Their state office is at 336
Lake street, Minneapolis, Minn. Elder N. W.
Allee, of Minneapolis, Is president of the con
ference, and will preside at the meetings. It
is confidently expected that this will be a
larger meeting than last year. Already more
tents are ordered than at. the beginning of
last meeting. The tents are owned and con-

A Husband WaA Treasures the Mem
ory, of His Wife.
New York Sun.
The Sun reporter was leaning In a
graceful attitude against the counter
of an up-tow* hotel office, conversing
in an insouciant and nonchalant man
ner with the=3 haughty and imperious
clerk, as reporters always do, when a
nice-looking old gentleman with just
enough provincialism in his appear
ance to show rthat he was not a New
Yorker, though he might have come
from Philadelphia or any other rural
district, came up to the register, as if
he had been there before, and wrote
his name and address. In»a few min
utes the clerk had sent him oft* to his
room with a bell boy, and resumed his
"Queer old chap," he said, nodding
in the direction of the departing guest.
The reporter whirled the register
around to look at the name.
"Yes?" he replied, questioningly. "I
see that he* has signed himself and
wife. Where's the wife? In the ladies'
"That's the queer part of It," con
tinued the clerk, with an evident pur
pose of telling a story, and the re
porter became interested. "There isn't
any wife. He's a widower, and has
been for fifteen years, but he has been
signing it that way for the ten years
I have known him. He is -now sixty,
and was married at forty, and the ro
mance is as pretty as it is pathetic."
"And unusual," ventured the report
er, "If he is faithful to the memory of
one woman, and that woman his wife.
Widowers are not all so."
"That is why this one's story is the
more interesting. Let me tell you.
At twenty-five he was a l>oor young
clerk In a Western town, and was ro
mantically and deeply in love with a
pretty girl of twenty. It may be said
that she was 1 1n love with him, too;
but he had queer notions, and as they
were both poor," and a rich man was
anxious to marry the girl, he never
told his love, but let concealment, like
a worm in the bud, feed on his damask
cheek, as It were, and he pined in
thought and with a green and yellow
melancholy sat, like patience on a mon
ument, while the other man married
"At thirty-four she was a widow and
poor, for her husband had dissipated
his fortune, add; our friend here, still
a bachelor and •as much In love as
ever, was a successful merchant This
time he was braver, for he was pos
sessed of the sinews of war, and with
in a year's time he had married her. It
was rather hasty on her part, possibly;
but he had waited long enough and
was so importunate that she compro
mised with him on one year instead of
the regulation two of widowhood. They
came to this hotel on their wedding
tour, and were here two weeks, and
one of the proprietors of the hotel in
forms me that he never has seen a
couple more suited to each other and
better satisfied with each other. After
that he came to the city In the spring
and autumn to buy goods, and she al
ways '--accompanied him, and they
seemed to be. no-further away from
the honeymoon season "With each re
curring year. wttrrt \, oj
"At iast, ttfter the fifth' spring trip,
he did not come, but Mb manager did,
and he said that the wife had died and
the husband's mind wast affected,
though they hoped he would come
around all right In time. In the fol
lowing spring he came again, but he
was not the same man any more. His
mind was clear on all business mat
ters, but he was 'queer' about his
wife, and a sadder-faced man could'nt
be found anywhere. The old clerk,
who had been at the counter on his
previous visits, was there when he
came again, and after greeting him
pleasantly turned the register around
for him to sign It. He responded as
usual, and when the clerk looked at
the name it was followed as before by
'and wife,' as he had been accustomed
to sign it. Th« clerk was about to call
his attention , to It, but a second
thought prompted him not to notice
It, and he sent the guest to the bridal
chamber, the croom he and his wife
always occupied, as they did on their
first visit.
"During his stay of a week he had
very little to isay, and if any refer
ence was made, to his wife he re
sponded as if she were still alive and
was with him at the hotel. At the
table, too, he 6ad a place for her, and
her meals we*e «erved as If she had
been there to eat them. When he was
ready to go abd came for his bill it
was made out as usual, and he paid
for two people- without comment. Ten
years ago, when I came into the of
fice, I received .my Instructions con
cerning our peculiar guest, and have,
since my first meeting with him, acted
with him exactly as if he were accom
panied by his wife. I have learned
that he follows the same course in all
that he does in any way connected
with her. He buys two railroad tickets,
two theater tickets, two places in any
conveyance, two everything, where she
might have gone with him, and on
trips where she would not have ac
companied him in life, such as short
trips from his town or to affairs of
any kind where it was probable she
would not have cared to go, he pro
vides only for himself. He seems to
understand what she would be doing
all these years, and acts accordingly.
You noticed him sign that register and
go off up stairs?" concluded the clerk.
"Well, he does all the rest in the same
confident way, just as if she were with
him and his first consideration was for

BORHOOD OF ?27,000.
Mr. Paxton Says It Will Be Taken
Out of His Hands Very
The King property, consisting of the resi
dence and the lot upon which it stands, 100
by 160 feet, at 525 Summit avenue, has been
Bold to ex-Justice Edward M. Paxton, of the
' supreme court of Pennsylvania, who is in
the city.
The consideration is understood to have
been $15,000 in cash and two sections of
land in North Dakota, valued at $12,000.
The property, which is on Summit, be
tween Arundel and Mackubin, belonged to
James King, but has not been occupied for
the past year, as that gentleman now re
sides at 409 Ashland avenue.
Judge Paxton is a resident of Philadelphia,
where he has many and varied Interests,
among them the receivership of the Phila
delphia & Reading road, and he does not in
tend to occupy his new purchase, although
it is improbable that he bought the property
merely as an investment. He came to St.
Paul a week ago, accompanied by Mrs. Pax
ton, a nephew, and Miss Stolp, and went
through in his private car to Fargo and Bis
marck, where he also has considerable land
ed interests.
He was seen on his car last night in the
union depot by a G 1 ob c reporter, and con
firmed the news of the purchase of the prop
Speaking of railroad matters, the Judge
said that the Philadelphia ft Reading, which
has for the last three years been in the re
ceivers' hands,would probably be put through
the reorganization process in the near future,
and that it would be taken from the receiv
ers within a year.
The party will leave tonight or tomorrow
night for the East.

New York Sun.
In those parts of the town in which the
foreign-born population is largest, signs in
windows indicating the presence indoors of
salesmen or saleswomen with linguistic ac
complishments are not rare in retail stores,
and this is especially the case along the chief
thoroughfares of the east or west side of
town. In the east side the sign "Deutsch hier
gesprochen" is frequent. Likewise, on the
west side of town, two signs are familiar,
"Ici on parle Francals" and "Aqui sc habla
Espanol," for Spaniards. Mexicans, Cubans
and South Americans. But though the Ital
ian population of New York is very much
larger than either the French-speaking or
the Spanish-speaking colony, signs announc-
ing that Italian is spoken within are rare.
'The reason for this is to be found probably
in the fact that Italians are much more
chtnnish than other nationalities in New
•York. They buy by preference from their
own people; they trade with their own com
patriots, and as American retail dealers de
rive little benefit from the patronage of
Italian purchasers, they do not find it ex
pedient to secure, even In the larger stores,
salesmen familiar with the Italian tongue.
Moreover, Italian is a language spoken
practically by Italians only. It is nowhere
a substitute, for any other language, where
as German is very readily spoken by those
coming from Russia and Austria, as well as
Germany, while French is the language of
many of the Swlbs and nearly all of the Bel
gians in town. Still another reason to ac
count for it is this: The Italian emigrants
who come to New York are for the most part
very poor, and are, until a few years after
their arrival, at least, unable to give any
profitable patronage to the larger stores. If
fortune favors them, and they acquire means,
they have learned English in the meanwhile,
and the aid of Italian-speaking salesmen is
not required. Many wealthy and well
to-do Italians, also, speak French as well
as their own language. Italians are further
more singularly adept at acquiring English.
After a brief residence in town the most un
lettered and untutored Italian will have at
least a smattering of colloquial English, and
be able to make himself understood. The
same is true of the Russian Jews who come
to the United States, and after a brief resi
dence are able to converse volubly in English,
or, at least what serves as English.
The importance of the Italian colony in
New York is at present one of numbers
rather than of Influence, but it will probably
not be many years before the aptitude of the
Italians for American ways, iv weU ;as for
the English language, make itself felt.

"Yes, your excellency?
"Doesn't some poet or other literary per
son speak in high terms of unklssed kisses?
"The phrase Is familiar to me, sire, but 1
cannot recall its author's name."
"Neither can I, but, as I remember it, the
idea is that there is more yum-yum, so to
speak, in unktssed kisses than in the regu
lation variety."
"Your excellency has my idea of the au*
