It Wng Legal—An Insolvent Insur
ance Company Mnsl Square
Five Claims Against It.
The supreme court yesterday handed
down a number of decisions, among
them one sustaining the decision of "the
Hennepin county court against the
payment of huge fees to coroners when
they are called upon to act in more
than one case in any one day. Up to
the time that the pending suit was
brought, coroners charged the same fee
to the county for every body viewed,
which made quite a sum in the case of
large railroad accidents, fatal fires in
cities, and like casualties. It applies
most, however, to the coroner of Hen
nepin county, who is frequently called
to view more than one body in a day.
The court rules that they may not
make two charges in one day.
Decisions are also filed in six cases
involving the rights of policy holders
in the Insolvent National Credit Insur
ance company, entitling them to re
cover the unearned premiums on their
policies and to that extent to partici
pate in the moneys of the company In
the hands of the state insurance de
The court also sustains the validity
of the recent special election held in
Duluth to decide upon the issuance of
bonds for the erection of a new water
works plant.
The syllabi of yesterday's decisions
are as follows:

body and makes an examination of the other,
Held, under Sec. 5554, G. S. 1895, he is not
entitled to a fee of $5 for each examination
and each inquest, or to anything more than
$5 per day "for the time actually spent,"

1. Held, the court below did not err In
allowing the claim of the plaintiff policy
2. The defendant insurance company was
engaged in the business of insuring, or in
demnifying, mercantile concerns against "ex
cess losses" caused by the failure or insol
vency of customers to whom such concerns
had made sales on credit, which "excess
losses" were ascertained by deducting from
the actual losses 15 per cent, thereof, and
also 1 per cent, of the total year's sales, to
be not less than a stipulated amount; the
firm of A. & M. took out such a policy to
run for one year, In which It was stipulated
that the year's sales on which the 1 per cent,
was to be computed should not bo less than
$90,000; when the policy had run ten months
and seven days the Insurer, being insolvent,
made an assignment for the benefit of its
Held, such assignment terminated the pol
During the ten months and seven days
which the policy ran, the total amount of
sales of the Insured was $75,000, and no
more; for the purpose of determining the
"excess loss," held, the 1 per cent, should
be computed on this amount and not on the
$90,000 aforesaid.
2. Held, further, they were also entitled
to recover back the unearned premium fo*r
the balance of the year after the assignment.
3. B. took out a similar policy, which had
run but a part of the year for which it was
taken out, when the insurer assigned as
aforesaid; during this time B. did not suffer
a sufficient amount of loss to enable him to
recover for the same under the policy, but
during the whole year for which the policy
was Issued he did.
Held, he is not entitled, as against the
funds in the hands of the insurance commis
sioner, deposited under Sec. 3332, G. S. 1894,
to treat the Insurer as a going concern for
the balance of the year, so as to recover
for losses occurring subsequent to the as
4. The D. corporation took out a similar
policy, which ran also but a part of the year,
when the insurer assigned as aforesaid; dur
ing this time the insured suffered no loss.
Held, It was not entitled ta rescind the
contract and recover back the whole premium
paid, and was only entitled to recover back
the unearned premium for the balance of the
year subsequent to the assignment.
5. The policy of the A. company ran the
full year for which It was issued, and nine
days thereafter the insurer assigned as afore
said; by the terms of the policy the insured
was barred from recovering on the policy
unless It made final proof of its year's losses
within thirty days after the expiration of
the year, which it failed to do.
Held, the assignment was a breach of the
contract and the insured was entitled to
recover on a quantum meruit without fur
nishing such proof of loss.

earned premiums are entitled to participate

In an action to enjoin the city officers of
Duluth from issuing "water and light" bonds,
pursuant to a special election held under
the charter; held,
1. The ballot was not so complex and
misleading that tho election was void.
2. The placing of the words "Yes"and
"No" after the proposition to be voted on
was legal, following Truelsen vs. Mayor of
Duluth, 63 N. W. R. R. 714.
3. The city may, under the charter, issue
such bonds to erect a water plant alone.
4. The question of the necessity of erect
ing such a water plant when the city is
already adequately supplied by another water
plant owned by a private corporation, Is a
legislative question and not for the courts.
5. Certain irregularities alleged, held not
sufficient to avoid the election, It not ap
pearing that they changed the result.
6. Held, the complaint does not state facts
sufficient to constitute a cause of action.

John Anderson, et al., Respondents, vs. The
Anderson Iron Co., et al., Defendants,
Angus R. Macfarlane, et al., Appellants.
The articles of Incorporation of the defend
ant corporation construed, and held. It was
not organized for the purpose of carrying on
an exclusively mechanical business such that
its stockholders were exempt from "double
liability" under the rule laid down in Cow
ling v. Zenith Iron Co. filed herewith.
So far ac Sec. 2829, G. S. 1894, attempts to
exempt from such liability, stockholders of
corporations organized for the purpose of
"buying,-" selling and dealing in mineral
lands," (as provided by Sec. 2827.) It Is un
constitutional and void. Canty, J.
Oliver Mining Co., Appellant, vs. Merrill M.
Clark, et al., Respondents.
The complaint alleges that tho plaintiff,
(vendee) holding an executory contract for
the purchase of land, refused to accept the
conveyance tendered by Che defendant, (ven
dor) because the title was unmarketable and
the land incumbered with the Hens of certain
Judgments against a prior grantor, M., (which
Judgments were docketed before the convey
ance by him to C.,) thait thereafter C. con
veyed the land for value to the defendant,
A. E. C, with notice of plaintiff's rights,
and that the title has since Improved by rea
son of the removal of some of said Judgments
and the better financial condition of the
Judgment debtor, M. This action waa sinoe
brought to compel specific performance of
plaintiff's contract and the complaint also al
leged certain other clouds on the title, which
plaintiff proposed to waive and accept specific
performance regardless of them.
Held, for the reasons stated in the opinion,
the court below did not err in striking out
these latter allegations as irrelevant and re
dundant. Order affirmed. Canty, J.

Engineers Locally Favor the Posi
tion of Judge Egan.
C. N. Ludlow, secretary of the local
branch of the national association stat
ionary engineers says In regard to the
Graham case and the manifesto that
it brought forth from the office of State
Boiler Inspector Zelch that Mr. Zelch
Is wrong in supposing that Judge
Euan's decision has stirred up any
feeling among the engineers of this city.
Secretary Ludlow insists that the de
cision is in accordance with the general
sentiment of the local engineers and
states that while the association has
dene nothing as an organization its
m<-mbers aim to secure from the su
preme court a confirmation of the de
cision of Judge Egan. If they prove
successful in that, they then purpose
to secure better local license laws
through the city councils of St. Paul,
Minneapolis and Duluth, where are
located the largest^umbers of station
ary engineers. The N. A. S. E. also
objects to Mr. Zglch's designation of
it as.the engineers*-onion, claiming that
there is no such organization in St. Paul
and that their' association is
clearly the one intended to be referred
The association, they claim, is plan
ed to secure progress and education
among the engineers, and they have
nothing to do with boycotts, strikes,
or the other weapons usually resorted
to by labor organizations. They claim
individually that the present law is
class legislation In that locomotive en
gineers are exempt from its workings,
and as Individuals they are fighting it
for that reason.
So far as Mr. Zelch's announcement
that he will continue to do business Is
concerned, It is claimed, that amounts
to nothing at least in Ramsey county
Until the case is reversed by the Sup
preme court, the district court will re
fuse to help him collect any fees nor
will it punish any man who declines to
take out a license.

Officers of the Association Favor it
and That "Will Probably be
the Result.
The committee appointed from the
various stations to take such steps as
are necessary to disband the Police
Mutual Aid association held a meeting
yesterday. The delegation called on
the attorney general and learned from
him that It was necessary to have a
majority of the Incorporators sign
papers for the dlsbandment. After this
Is done the matter will have to be
brought before the district court and
on a showing that the association Is
not Indebted to anyone an order will
be made Slsbandlng the organization.
There is about $1,800 In the treasury
and about 150 members.
The association was started In Jan
uary, 1895, the Intention being at the
time to have a bill passed in the legis
lature which would give the associa
tion a part of the money turned over
by the state to the Firemen's Mutual
Aid association each year. One per
cent of the Insurance fees paid to the
state are under a law paid the mutual
aid associations connected with the
fire departments in the state. Consid
erable lobbying was done by the po
licemen but the proposed bill failed to
get through. The association incor
porated and since then has gone ahead
financially and otherwise. Three death
benefits have been paid those of the
force who died since the association
started, being D. J. O'Connor, John
Zirklebach and John Gleason.
As soon as Mayor Doran took his
seat and commenced to reorganize the
department the cry was started that it
would be a good thing to disband.
While there is some opposition to this
the officers now in charge of the de
partment are almost unanimously In
favor of the breaking up of the asso
ciation. As it Is just at this time, any
thing their superiors want the rank
and file are bound to agree to. Some of
the men are in favor of not disbanding
the association, as a provision*?, was
made in the articles which provided
that a member withdrawing trojn the
force could still retain membership by
the payment of monthly dues the same
as though he was on the force. Others
are In favor of keeping the money In
tact and paying it to the heirs of the
first three members who die. Those in
accord with this proposition claim the
$10 or so that each would get by break
ing up the association would not be of
much use Individually, and It would
be a great help to the wife and chil
dren of the members who might be
claimed by death.
As stated above, however, the officers
of the department from some reason
are in favor of disbanding and the lists
left at the several stations to be signed
show that the men are following the
leaders and signing to break up the as
sociation. The greater part of the
money in the treasury was secured by
a game of ball played between nines
from the St. Paul and Minneapolis po
lice force last summer.
Mons Cnlliet Delivers an Address to
the Class.
Mons. Calliet presented the medals at the
graduating exercises of St. Mary's school,
held last evening In St. Mary's hall. The
medals were awarded to Lorena Galbert, of
the confirmation class; Rose Farrell, for "good
conduct, and Joseph Relnbolt, for scholarship.
Mons. Calliet, in addressing the class, said
that he was glad to be there; that he always
took a great interest in children, and that
he dearly loved the school. It was the nur
sery of the church. The members of the
graduating class gave an attractive little
play entitled "All is Not Gold that Glitters."
The little girls gave their lines with clear
ness and something of dramatic effect, and
as the scenes moved quickly and without the
slightest drag, the young pecJpTe were more
successful In their venture than amateurs
generally are. There was also a chorus of
boys' voices and one composed of girls'
voices, both of them well trained. Frank
Kearns recited "The Bachelor Auction," and
a flag drill by a band of little girls was one
of the prettiest features of the programme.
There was a good attendance.

I would respectfully call your attention to
the bad condition of the chimney* vii No,
2 Engine house. I would recommend that
they be repaired.
I would respectfully recommend that your
honorable body reuuest the Board of Water
Commissioners to locate more hydrants near
the plant of the Bonn Manufacturing com
A double hydrant should bo located near
the corner of Whital and Arcade -streets,
and a double hydrant should be located in
place of the single hydrant now located at
the office of the liohn Manufacturing com
I would also recommend that the Board of
Water Commissioners be asked to locate a
double hydrant on Forest street between
Forest street bridge and Wells street.
The location of hydrants at places recom
mended would be of great holp In case of
Are; still, at the same time, I consider. In
order to afford proper protection to the plant,
there ought to be hydrants located from the
Lake Phalen main right through the yards
of the Bohn Mf'g Co., but if this cannot be
done the hydrants above will afford protec
tion to box factory and such buildings as
are adjacent to the Forest and Arcade street*
sides of plant.
