STRAUS STILL. AT LARGE.
Driver Who Ran Dunn Mrs. O'Toole
John Straus, who drove the rig which
knocked down and ran over Mrs.
O'Toole, and from the effects of which
the woman died, has not yet been ar
rested. Detectives have been searching
for him since Thursday noon, at which
time they learned the identity of the
driver of the rig. Straus, however, had
left his home two hours previous to
this and has not been seen since. Chief
of Detectives Schweitzer, seen last
evening, said Straus had not been ap
prehended, but it was almost certain
that he would be in custody within a
short time. Mrs. Straus, who is pros
trated by the absence of her husband
and the serious position in which he
is placed by the accident, says that
she never expects to see her husband
alive again, and intimates that the
charge against him has caused him to
become deranged. When her husband
returned to the barn Wednesday night,
he informed her that he had accidental
ly run into a woman at Sixth and St.
Peter streets, but expressed the hope
that she was not seriously Injured. At
9 o'clocß Thursday morning he learned
that the woman was dead and since
then, she says, she has not seen or
heard from him. The detectives, how
ever, are keeping a close watch on the
house and also on the movements of
James McLeary, the young man who
was in the buggy with Straus, says
that the horse was not being driven
fast at the time of the accident, and
that Straus simply failed to see Mrs.
O'Toole stoop down to pick up a pack
age which she had dropped. The only
explanation he offers for the driving
away after the accident is that they
did not think the woman was seriously
hurt. In view of the fact that Mc-
Leary was not driving the rig at the
time the accident occurred, and that-,
F. H. Garland, agent for the Northern '
Pacific express company, vouched for
his appearance when wanted, the
young man was not locked up.
Yesterday afternoon Coroner Whit
comb empaneled a coroner's jury con
sisting of John Fitzgerald, Michael
O'Keefe, Edward Wallace, Mathew
Heck, Joseph Kinnucane and George
Borden. The jury visited the residence
of Walter Curtiss, where the remains
of Mrs. O'Toole are lying, and were
duly sworn over the body. The taking
of testimony will not commence until
after Straus has been arrested, and
as this event may not occur until to
day, It is probable that the inquest will
not be held until Monday.
The funeral of Mrs. O'Toole will take
place this morning from the Cathedral,
and the interment will be in Calvary

THE SAINT PAUt, GLOBE: SATURDAY, AUGUST 22, 1896.
BHYA|i WAS A FROST
JOHN H. HORTON ON THE NEBRAS
KAN'S APPEARANCE IN NEW
WAS AT THE BIG MEETING.
THINKS SEVENTY-FIVE PER CENT
WENT TO HEAR HIM THROUGH
M'KINLEY SURE OF HIS ELECTION
Is the Way the Eastern People Re
gard the Outlook— Business,
However, Is Depressed.
John H. Horton, of the firm of Ran
som & Horton, returned from the East
yesterday after an absence of some
three weeks. Mr. Horton spent nearly
all of his time in New York city, where
in the course of his business he came
into daily contact with a large num
ber of representative merchants of that
(Sty, as well as any quantity of buy
ers representing business houses in all
parts of the country. When questioned
last night concerning the political and
financial situation in New York city
and the East generally, Mr. Horton
"There Is comparatively little silver
sentiment in New York city, not as
much as there seemed to be before
Bryan spoke at the Madison Square
garden. Prior to that event there was
a noticeable depression in business
circles, apparently due to the hurrah
sentiment with which the coming of
Bryan was heralded. But his actual
coming and appearance caused a re
action. This was largely attributable
to the newspapers, which in their ac
counts of Bryan's speech really gave
him the worst of it, by conveying the
impression that the multitude that as
sembled to hear him were greatly dis
appointed, as shown by the fact that
many left the garden within ten min
utes after he began to speak. In a
sense, this last statement was true, as
I can testify, for I was there. It was
a terribly hot night, the thermometer
registering 94 degrees at 8 o'clock. The
heat and the fact that Bryan proceed
ed to read his address caused a good
many to leave the place soon after
he began. In my opinion 75 per cent
of the enormous crowd went to hear
Mr. Bryan out of curiosity, not be
cause they believed in the silver move
ment. Well, the very next day, such
wa» the relief experienced in business
circles^generally, that stocks rose from
two and a half to three points. It
seemed as if the atmosphere had been
"Of course business is at a stand
still just now. The New York mer
chants are much concerned over the
attitude of the West on the silver ques
tion. The first thing they a«ked me was
how Minnesota stood. I replied that I
was not any better able to answer
that question thati any other Minne
sota man, but that I believed the state
would be found in the right column
the day after election. Naturally the
Eastern merchants and bankers regard
the West with some disfavor, and they
are reluctant to transact business with
the people of those states which they
consider doubtful. But they are con
fident of their own people voting for
sound money. You would be astonished
to see the number of men in New York
city who are wearing McKinley but
tons. An Intimate friend of mine who
has for years been a prominent Tam
many man is out for McKinley, and so
are many more Democrats of the most
pronounced type. With them, it Is a
case of sacrificing their politics to save
their pocketbooks, for the feeling
strongly prevails among the business
men that the election of Bryan means
ruin. And that same feeling has spread
to a large extent among the wage earn
ers of the East. A bicycle manufac
turer whom I met there, and who em
ploys over 125 men, informed me that
he had recently called his employes be
fore him and told them that If Bryan
was elected he would be compelled to
clcse his factory. Many other employ
ers have given their employes similar
information and the consequence is
that the wage earners have discovered
that it is to their interest to prevent,
if possible, the catastrophe that would
follow the success of the free silver
Asked what the sentiment of the
sound money Democrats was relative
to the advisability of nominating a
third ticket Mr. Horton said that
he was somewhat surprised to learn
that the general sentiment favored
such a course.
"It was my belief," continued Mr.
Horton, "that a third ticket represent
ing sound money would be the means
of drawing away votes for McKinley,
but the Eastern Democrats argued that
there is a large class of Democrats in
a state like Kentucky, for instance,
who would never vote for the Republi
can ticket and who, in the absence of a
sound money Democratic candidate,
would vote for the only Democratic
candidate in the field.
"On my way home, I gained much
interesting information from a fellow
traveler who is working in various
sections of the country in the interests
of McKinley. He predicted that by
Oct. 1 the Republican party would ab
solutely drop and discard the silver
issue, which, in his opinion, would be
dead by that time, and that McKinley
would take the stump on the tariff issue
alone. It was also this gentleman's
opinion that of the Northern central
states, Illinois and Michigan were the
only doubtful ones."
In conclusion Mr. Horton said that*
St. Paul was no worse off at present
than any other city in the country.
Business was suffering a temporary
paralysis everywhere, but the indica
tions were promising that confidence
• would soon be restored and with it
would come a general rental of bus
AT MARKET HALL.
Modern "Woodmen's Blowout to Be
In spite of the statement in some of
the local papers that the local lodges
of the Modern Woodmen had aban
doned the idea of a reception to the
visiting grand officers of the order
when they visit the city next week,
such a reception will be held at Market
hall, Friday evening. There will be
a parade of the members of the local
lodges at 8 o'clock, the line of march
ending at Market hall, where addresses
will be made by Mayor Doran in be
half of the city, Harry Frankiin, in
behalf of the local lodges, and some of
the visiting orators in response.
CHANGING COUNTY LINES.
Mo-re to Test the Validity of the
Proceedings were begun in the dis
trict court yesterday to test the validity
of the general law which prescribes the
mode of changing county lines. The
citizens of Polk county are especially
interested in the matter. The proceed
ing is an application by the state of
Minnesota on the relation of Attorney
General Childs for an Injunction to
restrain the Pioneer Press and the St.
Paul Dispatch from receiving any com
pensation for the publication of the
governor's proclamation authorizing
the submission to the voters of Polk
county of the Question of dividing that
county into four counties.
The injunction Is asked for on the
ground that the general law under
which the proclamation was issued is
a violation of Section 1, of the state
constitution, which provides that no
general law shall be made applicable
to the changing of county lines, and on
the further ground j that the dismem
berment of Polk county is detrimental
to public interests Inasmuch as it would
increase the number of public co-oper
ations In the state to the damage of
all the people of the state.
The application further recites that
the defendant newspapers will receive
compensation out of? the state treasury
for publication of the governor's pro
clamation, unless they are restrained,
wherefore they are asked to show cause
on Aug. 25, why the application for an
injunction should not be granted.
The law by virtue of which the gov
ernor issued the proclamation dividing
Polk county into N*lson, Garfield, Hill
and Red Lake counties, authorizes the
issue of such a proclamation upon the
receipt of a petition <>signed by a certain
proportion of voters of the county.
MURPHY BACKS DOWN.
Afraid to Push the Charge Against
A warrant was issued Thursday night
for the arrest of Patrolman Ahem, on
a charge of assault and battery, the
complaining witness being Peter Mur
phy, the hotel runner. The warrant
was sent to police headquarters along
with other papers of the same nature,
but when court convened, yesterday
morning, there was no appearance of
Patrolman Ahem. City Presecutor Op
penheim inquired as to the reason for
the absence of the prisoner but received
no reply from the officer from the police
department, who has charge of the
criminal cases in the court. Yesterday
afternoon Mr. Oppenheim asked that
the court request the presence of Chief
Goss, for the purpose of learning why
the mandate of the court had been
disregarded and the warrant for
Ahern's arrest had not been served.
Mr. Oppenheim said there was no rea
son why the officer should not have
been brought into court. He had seen
him about the court house during the
noon hour and knew that he was on
duty not half a mile from the court
room. A policeman, Mr. Oppenheim
contended, should not be beyond the
power of a warrant duly issued by the
court, and they should be treated like
other persons against whom warrants
had been issued.
Judge Twohy said he had been in
formed that there had been no service
of the warrant for the reason that the
complaining witness did not care to
prosecute the case and desired to with
draw the warrant. This, while not re
lieving the chief of police from respon
sibility in not serving the warrant,
seemed to him a sufficient reason for
the postponment of any action in the
case at the present time. The court,
however, said he would take notice of
a motion in reference to the matter at
the morning session of the court to
. Clerk Conroy said the warrant had
been returned by Lieut. Boerner and
with the information that the com
plaining witness desired to withdraw
the complaint. Murphy corroborated
the statement and said that he was in
a business which would not allow him
to buck the entire police force. He
did not want to be understood by this
that he was doing anything contrary
to the law, but his usefulness as a
hotel runner could be curtailed to a
large extent, if he engaged in any war
fare with the police department.
Judge Twohy, seen after the adjourn
ment of court, said, when the case of
disorderly conduct against Murphy
was dismissed, he understood that the
trouble between Ahem and Murphy
had been settled, and the assault on
Murphy by the officer would not be
pressed. It was with this understand
ing that the case had been dropped and
Murphy discharged. There, was noth
ing that could be done in the case, so
far as he could see, until Ahem was
before the court. If Murphy insisted
on withdrawing the complaint It would
settle the case, although it had always
been the practice to have such com
plaints withdrawn in open court and
with the consent of the prosecuting at
It was reported last evening that
Patrolman Ahem would appear In the
police court this morning, and at the
same time Murphy would also appear
and notify the court that he desired to
withdraw the complaint.
NOT IN THIS STATE.
Plate Glass Insurance Companies
Limited in Their Plan.
The question having arisen as to
whether or not the organization of
mutual or co-operative plate glass in
surance companies is permissible un
der the laws of Minnesota, Attorney
General Childs rules as follows in a
letter to Acting Insurance Commis
Chapter 184, General Laws 1885, provides for
the incorporation of . fraternal or non-fra
ternal companies for the purpose of trans
acting the business of life, casualty or en
dowment, or both life, casualty and endow
ment insurance upon the co-operative or as
Your question involves the construction to
be given to the word "casualty" as therein
employed. If we consult merely the diction
ary definition of the ■word, there will be no
difficulty in reaching the view that the
statute contemplates the class of insurance
named by you. We must not, however, over
look the terms of the act Itself bearing upon
the question. Sections 5 and 6 thereof define
in substance, life, endowment and casualty
Section 7 provides that every such associa
tion doing a life, endowment or casualty in
surance business upon the co-operative or I
assessment plan as herein defined shall on or j
before the Ist day of February of each year
make and file with the commissioner of in
surance of this state, a report of its affairs.
The whole scope of the act seems to be |
that the business Is to be restricted to the
insurance of individuals against death and ac- \
cldent, and providing for endowments to in
Those three classes of business naturally
group themselves together, and I am of the
opinion that the legislature had them only
in mind in using the terms "life, casualty or
You are therefore advised that a company
cannot be organized under Chapter 184 for
the insurance of plate glass.

B. and F. B. Encell for embezzlement
was finallly settled by the court dis

that the explanation made was, be

Mr. Donnelly represented the state,
while O. H. Comfort appeared for both
the defendants. After the evidence was
all in, Mr. Donnielly moved for an ac
quittal on the ground that the evidence
clearly showed that no crime had been
committed, nor intended.
Sometime in April, 1895, J. D. Encell
collected from Frank Samson for Leo
Godfreit, $3, In June $9, for Leo God
freit. The Encells made several un
successful attempts to pay the money
to Mr. Gotfreit, but owing to having
the name spelled incorrectly, and no
address, the letter containing the check
waa returned. They, according to un
contradicted testimony, made an effort
to find his address from Samson, who
refused to give it. F. E. Encell, who is
now an attorney in St. Louis, came up
here to face' the charge, and was not
arrested at any time. J. B. Encell was
arrested last Monday, but was released
on a $100 bond signed by Dr. S. Robil
