Are Also the Baae of a Decision
Handed Down by Judge
Among the decisions handed down
by the supreme court yesterday was
one in the case of Barg vs. Bousfleld
et al., in which the plaintiff sued for
damages received while working in a
pail factory. The defendant pleaded
that he was not the lad's employer,
but that Barg was working for a sub
contractor named Scott. The court
holds, however, that the Bousfield con
cern holds an indemnity policy insur
ing against suits from any employe
injured in the mill, and that its liabil
ity for Barg"s injuries is clearly estab
The syllabi of yesterday's decisions
are as follows:

vs. E. F. Bousfleld et al., appellants.
1. Rule applied that a youth of between
fifteen and sixteen years of age is required
to exercise the amount of discretion which
a person of his age and experience should
exercise and no more, and whether plaintiff
was guilty of contributory negligence held to
be a question for the Jury.
2. Whether or uot his employer was guilty
of negligence in failing to instruct such
youth and warn him of the dangers of work-
Ing around machinery with which he was not
familiar; held, a question for the jury.
3. Rule applied that where one who per
forms work for another, represents the will
of that other, not only as to the result, but
also as to the means by which that result
Is accomplished, he is not an independent
contractor, but the agent of that other who is
responsible for his acts and omissions within
the scope of his authority.
4. Plaintiff was employed in defendant's
establishment by one Scott, was injured by
the later's negligence, and brought this ac
tion to recover damages for the injury, claim
ing that he was defendant's servant, and
Scott was their agent; they denied this, and
claimed that Scott was an independent con
tractor and plaintiff was in his employ. On
the trial the court received evidence show
ing that defendants held an indemnity policy,
indemnifying them and holding them harm

tain assessments of taxes for local improve
ments may be redeemed at any time within
five years after the sale; It also provides
that a three months' notice of the time of

2. The charter also provides that when
the tax deed or certificate of sale is set
aside in any action in which its validity is
brought in question, the holder may recover

Syllabus— Plaintiff while employed as a
brakeman by defendant In its switch yard :
coupling an engine to a train of freight cars, i
received an injury by having his hand caught '
between the bumpers. He claims that it ;
was caused by the negligence of the engineer

the engine while plaintiff was standing on the j
foot board at the end of the tender, stooping '
over (without having a hold of the hand rail) |
and attempting to make the coupling, while I
the engine was still in motion approaching i
the car, and that such sudden stopping or
Jerking threw him off his balance causing
him to throw his hand on the bumper of the
car where it was caught by the bumper of the
engine before he had time to take it away.
Held, there was no evidence to show that
such sudden stopping or Jerking was any
thing more tha.-i ordinarily occurs in the busi
ness of switching and coupling cars, the risks
of which plaintiff assumed, or to show that
the engineer was negligent and plaintiff can
not recover.

Chinaman Caught at Buffalo Return
ing to His Home.
In a tourist car attached to the Nor
thern Pacific train yesterday afternon
sat a Chinaman. He was a good-look
ing young fellow, with features more
regular and less of the slant of the eye
than is usually noticeable In Mongoli
ans. He hadn't been long enough in
Yankeeland to speak very much En
glish, and probably if he had .had the
gift of gab that fiction has assigned to
the famous Mrs. Caudle, he would have
said nit. Accompanying the Mongolian
were two United States officers. It
was their duty to see that the Celestial
was put on board a ship and sent where
he belongs. In other words. Uncle Sam
was paying the expenses of two men
who will travel something like 5,000
miles, at a high rate per mile and draw
a salary as well, to see that one China
man is sent back to the land from
whence he came.
The Chinaman was In the custody of
U. S. Marshal J. V. Kane, and Deputy
Andrew Beasley, of Buffalo, N. T.
Their prisoner was caught while being
smuggled over from Canada into the
States a few days ago. The Chinaman
has been in the country about two
months and ever since he landed at
Port Townsend has been trying to get
over the border and to his countrymen
in Uncle Sam's domain. Two weeks
ago his friends attempted to slip him
through the lines at Buffalo. More
trouble is experienced at this city than
at any place along the border and a
close watch is always kept to prevent
the smuggling in of the objectionable
foreigners. This man was caught
shortly after midnisrht as he, with a
party of Buffalo CMnamen attempted
to reach the Am(SJ9s,n side of the Ni
agara river. He will now be taken to
Tacoma and turned over to the cus
toms officers at that point and after
ward sent to Port Townsend where he
will be deported to his native shore.
Marshal Kane is not new to this re
gion. Last fall he came through St.
Paul on the same errand only at that
time he had ten Chinamen who were
caught while being smuggled across
the line at Buffalo and were sent back
to their own country under the provis
ions of the Chinese exclusion act.

A LejfKl Loophole, Bat Others of
Doubtful Age Must Show Came
— O. 11. Lewis' Stand.
Every patrolman appointed by the
present administration, concerning
whose age there Is any doubt, will be '
compelled to make an affidavit that he
was under thirty-five years of age at
the time of his appointment. Other
wise his appointment will not be con-n
firmed. Such was the stand taken yes-^
terday by the assembly committee on
police. The committee also adopted a
resolution Instructing the chairman to
ask the mayor if all his police appoint
ments up to date have been made ac-^
cording to law, and if all of the men
appointed patrolmen were under
thirty-five years of age at the time.
It was the spiciest and warmest ses
sion of the committee on police that
has been held since the time* nearly
two years ago, when the committee of
the former assembly refused to rec
ommend Mayor Smith's police appoint
ments. One would expect harmony
with the policy of the mayor under
the present" circumstances, but the
meeting developed a condition of af
fairs far from harmonious. Mr. Lew
is took occasion to freely express his
views of the mayor's policy of appoint
ing men Ineligible to the position of
patrolmen, and also emphatically crit
icised those members of the council
who imagine they were elected to rep
resent the Republican party instead of
the people of St. Paul.
The first case considered by the com
mittee was that of John Quincy
Adams, whom Mayor Doran appointed
a bailiff of the municipal court. Mr.
Adams is over thirty-five years of age,
but reference to the charter, section 47,
page 205, showed that the mayor is au
thorized to appoint three persons to act
as bailiffs of the municipal court, the
judges of said court to approve of the
appointments. The section further
empowers the mayor to make these ap
pointments irrespective of any general
or special rules, or legal regulations
or enactments relative to the qualifi
tions of policemen. Consequently the
committee voted to recommend the
confirmation of the appointment of
Adams, though Mr. Reardon voted in
the negative on the ground that the
assembly had nothing to do with the
The next name considered was that
of T. B. Maloney, whom the mayor has
appointed license inspector. The dis
cussion of the appointment developed
considerable feeling and some plain
speaking, especially upon the part of
Mr. Lewis, whose remarks were a
trifle too caustic and pointed to be re
lished by some of his associates on the
committee. Besides Mr. Lewis there
were present Chairman Mabon and As
semblymen Reardon, Arosin and
The first question presented was. as
to the status of the city's license in
spector. Reference to the proceedings
of the council brought to light the or
dinance of 1892 which in substance pro
vides that one member of the police
force shall be detailed as a license in
spector at a salary of $1,200 a year. '
Mr. Thompson did not like the or
dinance one bit, and he said so.
"It was got up by some people for a
purpose, and ought to be repealed" de
clared Mr. Thompson.
Mr. Arosin thought likewise and re
marked that there might be 500 police
men on the force and not one man of
them be fit to become a license in
Corporation Attorney Darragh's
opinion as to what constituted eligibi
lity to the office of license inspector
was then read. It was to the effect
that the license inspector is a patrol
man and that the man appointed to
that office must comply with all the
qualifications required of any other
patrolman. Mr. Lewis then opened up.
"They only criticism of this ordinance
of 1892 is that it provides for a com
pensation of $1,200 for the license In
spector. I do not see why he should
receive any more salary than any other
patrolman. Now as to repealing this
ordinance, it seems to me that this is a
most inopportune time to do anything
of the kind. It is not a nice charge to
bring upon this Republican council
that we repeal ordinances that may
happen to conflict with our personal or
political pleasure or wishes. Besides, I
fail to see why a fit man cannot be
selected under this ordinance, be ap
pointed a patrolman and then %c de
tailed as a license inspector."
"I move that we recommend that the
appointment of Mr. Maloney be con
firmed," said Mr. Arosin; -"I know Mr.
Maloney to be an honest, able and con
scientious man and fit for the position
to which he has been appointed."
Mr. Thompson remarked' that he was
willing to back the mayor, but he
didn't believe in letting one man in and
refusing to confirm others. He thought
the age limit of 35 years too low. It
ought to be 45. Like Mr. Arosin, Mr.
Thompson was inclined to stand by
the mayor, rather than to observe the
strict letter of a law that he disap
proved of. Then Mr. Lewis planted
himself right in the center of the ring
and talked to the committe after this
"I differ with some of you gentlemen
as to the attitude we should assume
in this matter. During the past ad
ministration, the assembly and its com
mittee on police, of which I was a
member, fought all of Mayor Smith's
appointments in cases where the ap
pointees were over the age limit. I
maintain we should follow the same
policy in considering Mayor Doran's
appointments. My recollection is, gen
tlemen, that we all took the oath of
office, pledging ourselves to support
and observe the laws and ordinances of
this state and city. The charter in
equivocally states that no man is el
igible to the office of patrolman unless
he is under the age of 35. The fact
the mayor has erred in making this ap
pointment, don't excuse us for erring.
I am surprised that men should go to
the mayor and urge him to appoint a
man to an office for which he is dis
qualified by law. True, this is an un
fortunate provision of the charter but
there it is, and it must be obeyed. We
hewed close to the line during the past
administration and should do so now. I
would take this position if my own
father was a candidate for a position
of this kind. It was stated to me early,
by this administration that the age
limit would be strictly adhered to, and
I would never have voted to confirm
any appointment of a man whom I
knew to be over the age prescribed by
Mr. Arosin: I didn't vote against men
over 35 years of age who were appointed
by Mayor Smith.
Mr. Reardon: My conscience is clear.
I voted against nearly every one 1 of
Smith's appointments.
The Toll was about to be ttaJled'cin
Mr. Brosin's motion to recommend the
confirmation of tfce appointment of Mr.
Maloney, when .UDr. JLewis favored the
proceedings with a little more pepper.
Said he: ■ .
"We might as well «et down to busi
ness and make euraelves understood.
I propose that the responsibility shall
rest where it belongs.! If the mayor has
a due regard for the laws, he can. re-*
move the men wtoonl he has illegally
appointed. If he has! not a dute regard
for the laws and will not remove such
appointees, then hefcan bear the re
sponsibility.. I supposed that the mayor
was adhering to tha law. It is never
too late to right a wrong. Idw not
think that Mr. Maloney would accept
an office that the/ law disqualifies him
for. If he would then he is unfit for the
Mr., Arosin, at 'this juncture moved
that the chairman of the committee
b* Instructed to prepare a resolution'
asking ihe mayor if all his appoint
ments up to date had been made in ac
ccrdance with the law and If every
patrolman appointed by him was under
35 years of age when appointed. • The
resolution was unanimously adopted.
The vote was then taken on the
motion to recommend the confirmation
of the appointment of Maloney. Mr.
Maloney who was present, ' having
stated that he was 48 years of age. Mr.
Arosin declined to vote, Mr. Mabon
voted in the affirmative and- Messrs
Lewis, Thompson and Reardon voted
"no." The motion was thereupon de
clared lost.
But there was another seance In
store for the spectators. It arose over
the motion of Mr. Arosin that the
committee recommended that the as
sembly refuse to confirm the appoint
ment of W. H. Byrnes as a patrolman,
on the ground that Byrnes is a strong
Democrat and that a number of citi
zens, including the Seventh ward
coachmen's club, strenously objected to
the appointment. >
Assemblyman Kirke, who was present
endorsed Mr. Arosin's statements. "It
is true" said Mr. Kirke, that Byrnes is
a strong Democrat. He took an active
part in the city campaign, openly de
fled the Republican party and faught
Mr. Doran. Mr. Doran did not know
this, and appointed Byrnes at the re>
quest of Aid. Bigelow."
This was too much for Mr. Lewis who
once more and for the last time, ad
ministered a rebuke to his Republican
associates for thetr exhibition of petty
partisanship. Said Mr. Lewis:
"If his Democracy is the on'js ob
jection to Mr. Byrnes, I shall be under
the necessity of voting to confirm his
appointment. This common council is
here as I take it, to represent the peo
ple of St. Paul and not the Republican
party. I am not one of those who as
sume that Republicans are the only
men capable of serving the city effi
ciently and honestly. There are other
Democrats on the police force not as
competent as Mr. Byrnes. I do not
propose to vote against a man simply
because he Is a Democrat. You've got
to show me some ether objection."
Mr. Kirk and Mr. Arosin insisted
that they did not condemn Byrnes be
cause he is a Democrat, but they were
opposed to confirming his appointment
for the reason that he took an active
and offensive part in the campaign. It
would have been different had he kept
still. Mr. Arosin thought it poor grace
on the mayor's part to appoint such an
offensive partisan. Mr. Thompson said
that if Byrnes "took sides" in the cam
paign he, Thompson, would vote to
turn him down, but not because he was
a Democrat.
The vote on Mr. Arosin's motion to
refuse to confirm the appointment of
Byrnes resulted in four yeas and one
nay, Mr. Lewis voting in the negative.
Reardon voted "aye" because he was
satisfied, so he said, that Byrnes "got
appointed through false representa
The committee was abont to proceed
with the other doubtful appointments,
but discovered that it could *iot take
any action inasmuch as the real ages
of the appointees were not known to
the members. For instance, the age of
Robert A. McCall, a recent appointee,
is recorded, in the city clerk's book as
being 34. Mr. Arosin at once moved
that in all doubtful cases the appoin
tees be required to make sworn state
ments as to their ages. The motion pre
Mr. Lewis suggested that the city at
torney furnish an opinion- nAs- to, the
cases of the reappointment to the po
lice force of men who had formerly
served thereon, but had been dis
charged by another administration.
Mr. Lewis did not see how the reap
pointment could be considered a rein
statement. Assistant Corporation At
torney Phillips said that it was not a
reinstatement, the case being identi
cal, with that of an -original appoint
The committee then adjourned.
