holders, contended before Judge Bunn,
that Mr. Lienau had no authority as
secretary of the corporation to confess
judgment. Mr. Nelson strenuously op-
I posed the appointment of a receiver on
the ground that there was nothing to
receive. The testimony of Mr. Lienau
was to the effect that the assets of the
plant, including the typesetting ma
chines and the presses, which latter
Mr. Lienau classified under the head of
old iron, would not exceed $8,000. Mr.
Lienau, who is not only the secretary
but also the treasurer and general man
ager of the Volkszeitung company, tes
tified that the company had been insol
vent for three months.
Mr. Nelson, in behalf of the bond
holders, opposed the appointment of
a receiver. The Volkszeitung had giv
en a trust deed or chattel mortgage
under which it had issued its bonds for
$13,000. These bonds were still out
standing and were held by the re
ceivers of the Allemannia bank, the
est&te of Adam Decker, Brown, Treacy
& Co., and the Standard Printing com
pany, of Milwaukee. Default had been
made in the payment, and the bond
holders had authorized Albert Scheffer
as their trustee, to foreclose the mort
gage. Mr. Nelson insisted that it was
a waste of time to appoint a receiver
when there was nothing to receive.
More than $1,000, he said, was due to
Albert Schaller, representing the edi
torial staff and compositors, said that
his clients refused to work under Al
bert Scheffer. They wanted the court
to appoint a receiver under whose
management they could work, confi
dent that they would be naid for that
work. Mr. Schaller said that the com
positors and pressmen threatened to
quit work yesterday noon, but that he
had dissuaded them from takii g a
course that would depreciate the va ue
of the plant, so long as there was a
hope of preserving it.
Otto Kueffner, representing the
Yolkszeitung company, said that the
chattel mortgage executed in October.
1894, did not cover all the apsHs of the
company. Mr. SchalUr promptly add

owned up that he had his doubts about
the validity of the assignment:
Mr. Nelson remarked that he had his

however, if the editorial staff, printers
and pressmen would go to work under

cash and paid promptly for every
stroke of work they did.
Judge Bunn was inclined to hold that
the confession of judgment would ho d.
The assignment that was made after
ward, of course, was not considered.
The question presented was not wheth
er the Volkszeitung* company was in
solvent. Had any act showing in
solvency been performed, Judge Bunn
held that the confession of judgment
was valid and constituted evidence of
insolvency, and at 5 p. m. when the
attorneys and other interested parties
visited his office late in the afternoon
he announced the appointment of Mr.
Tietz as receiver.
Col. Tietz said last night that the men
refused to work under Albert Scheffer,
but that everything would be all right
now. He said they were not respon
sible for the poor paper of the last two
days, but beginning today would get
out a good paper, and they expected
the continued support of the German

H. P. Upham, the president of the
bank, in an interview with a reporter
for the Globe, said:
"There was never any doubt of the
legality of the action of the capitol
commission in issuing these certifiea.es,
nor of the validity of the certificates
themselves. All the talk of the Min
neapolis papers to the contrary was
idle. Nevertheless when we purchased
the certificates we stipulated that ac
companying, them should be a written
opinion of the attorney general as to
their validity; you see we might want
to sell them and the purchasers would
want this indorsement.
"There was no hurry about the mai-
Cer, for the commission was in no im-
mediate need of money, and as the
attorney general had other matters of
business to attend to, he took his own
time to prepare the opinion. When we
received it, we turned it over with other
matters to our attorney and received
his opinion this morning, indorsing
that of the attorney general, and the

is as follows:
To Charming Seabury, vice president of the
board of capitol commissioners:
You inquire whether the board of state
capitol commissioners is authorized to issue
certificates as provided by General Laws 1897.
The question shouid certainly be answered
in the affirmative, unless the issuance of such
certificates would constitute the creation of
a debt within the proiiibition of the consti
tution. There are authorities tending to the
effect that certificates of such a nature are
evidences of indebtedness within the consti
tutional meaning, but the following authori
ties clearly support the opposite view. * * *
The supreme court of this state has re
cently held that a standing appropriation
covering a period of ten years is a valid ex
ercise of legislative power.
The act of 1597 does not assume to authorize
payment otherwise than as provided by the
original appropriation act. The certificates
recite that on a given date the holders there
of will be r?spect:vely entitled to receive
from the state treasury the sum therein

are drawn pursuant to the various acts of
the legislature, relative to the erection of a

The holders of the certificates take them

XO LirEXSE FOR CERMAIX.
Byan's Engineer Turn-ed Down l»y
Homer M. Germain, engineer at the
Ryan hotel, who had made application
to Building Inspector Kingsley for a
plumber's license under the city char
ter, was polite'y turned down yesterday
by that official. Mr. Kingsley took this
action on the advice of Assistant Cor
poration Attorney iHall, who gave an
opinion to the effect that the law pass
ed by the last legislature, providing
that all plumbers who-desired to follow
the trade in the state, must pass an
examination before the state board of
plumbing examiners, would have to be
complied with before- the building in
spector could issue a license. In view
of this opinion Mr. I Kingsley stated
that in the future he (would in no case
issue a plumbet's license unless the ap
plicant brought with 'him a certificate
from the state plumbing commission.
Yesterday morning,: J. P. AdamsOn,
John McQuillan. Ji. H. Gerber, P. W.
Hudner and A. E. Schnaith. represent
ing the master plumbers' association,
railed on the building inspector. The
gentlemen showed the irsp dor a copy
of the plumbing law passed at the last
st-Fsion of the legislature, which pro
vides that before any person can follow
the trade of plumbi ->g they must under
go an examination bifore a commission
appointed under the law. The question
at issue, according to the representa-
I tives of the plumbers' association, was
whether the building inspector under
thf> charter, had the authority to issue
a license to Germain without his first
having secured a certificate from the
state board. Acting on the advice of
Assistant Corpoi-ation Attorney K[all,
the building inspector decided not to
issue Germain a license.
The plumbers claim that the state
board' cannot grant a license to Ger
main even if he ma.de application for
the reason that he. follows t.he business
of an engineer. Thoy • contend that to
procure a license th"c applicant must
follow the business as an occupation
and not now and Ihon. and that if th*y
were to allow a license in a case of this |
kind it would soon follow that the
engineer of every prominent building in J
the city would have a plumber"s license
and the same trouble would be en
countered that caused the agitation for
the passage of the law. creating the
board and making licensing necessary.
The application of Germain for a
plumber's license will come up at the
meeting of the water board this morn
ing. It was expected that the plumb
ers' association would be on hand to
oppose the granting of the license, but
yesterday afternoon it was stated that
the opinion of the corporation attoinsy
had made their protest before the water
commissioners unnecessary. It is very
likely that the matter will be taken
into the courts and the constitutionality
of the plumbing law tested. One of the
plumbers stated yesterday afternoon,
that Germain was a member of the
engiresrs' ass ciation, and as a menber
of that organization, was, and always
had been, a strict union man. For this
reason he could not understand why
Germain should try to break into the
plumbers' organization without it was
that he was forced to the thing by his
The action of the master plumbers
in attacking Engineer Germain, of th.?
Ryan hotel, is regarded as a move
ment directed at the owners of large
plants and buildings, where the engi
neer has charge of all the work,
changes and repairs of the buildings.
Their action, the engineers think, is
especially directed at the national as
sociation of stationary engineers,
which has a lodge of some 130 mem
bers. This organization is not a union
or labor organization, but is instead
an educational one, and its rcembers
are taught by it to use their best ef
forts for the benefit of their employers.
A large number of these engineers are
claimed to be competent plumbers, yet
they cannot, if they desired, secure a
license, for the reason that they are
non-union men. Secretary Harrington,
of the state board of examiners, in
formed Engineer Germain a few days
ago "that he would give him an ap
plication for a license, but It would do
him no good, as he could not secure a
license." The gentleman said that
nine plumbers, who had worked in the
city for fifteen to eighteen years, all
of whom were good men, were refused
license, and when Germain asked if it
was not because they were not mem
bers of the union, he refused to say.
The result of the present action
promises the organization of the own
ers and agents of hotels and large of
fice buildings, and a movement is al
ready started in that direction. The
chances are that the affair will finish
in the supreme court.

"Slim Dugan," the convict, is said to
have made the statement that Joe
White is innocent of the murder of J.
R. Harris, in June, 1893. The story is
that he has stated to Philip Rice, a
fellow convict, that the man who fired
the fatal shot was the "Johnstown
This much R. L. Penny, who defend
ed White in his trial, got out of Rice
the other day, but Dugan would ad
mit nothing. Dugan was confronted
by White and his attorney, and Mr.
Penny pleaded with him to speak up
and exhonerate his client, but he
turned a deaf ear to all appeals. He
refuses to make a direct confession
under oath, and consequently the story
he has told Rice is not available as
evidence in asking for a new trial.
However, Mr. Fenny has secured
sworn statements from two long-time
convicts, who declare that the story
of Dugan's guilt and of White's in
nocence was told them by the former.
The lawyer hopes that these will carry
their weight with the pardoning board,
which meets next week.
It will be remembered that Mr. Pen
ny, from the time he first took
White's case to the present, has al
ways believed him innocent of the
crime, and it was while paying a visit
to Stillwater Wediiesdayj in the hope
of securing some evidence in White's
favor to lay before the board of par
dons, that he elicited the information
"Speak out," he urged Dugan, "and
clear this man. You know he is in

You wrote Mrs. White before Joe was
tried that you would never see an in

trial and before, telling me the same

have promised me several times that
you would tell about the Harris mur

attorney. "You know I could not stay

going to try to throw the blame onto

there were men on that jury who nev

him, and so did Mrs. Harris. If it

"Yes, you would." answered Mr. Pen
ny. "You were convicted on your lame
explanation about your wounded arm.
That's why your case was weak."
"Now, see here, Dugan," said he,
"you !:now who is guilty, and you
know that White is innocent. Are you
going to keep him here thinking that
some time you may be pardoned? I
have been over here a number of times
to see you. Every time you have
promised to tell me, and you get al
most to the point of telling and then
you won't. Come, now. do the manly,
fair thing, and tell us who it was. If
you'll tell us that, we'll try and get

But Dugan's only reply was ad

But Rice was talkative, even voluble.
'Has Dugan ever to!d you who was
with him when he committed the Har
iis murder?" was asked him.
"Lots of times," came the reply in
stantly. "I guess he's told me every
time we have a chance to get together
"Who was it?" asked Penny.
"Johnstown Kid," was the reply.
"Why, Dugan has told fifty or sixty
men here all about it. He told me just
where he had been before he went to
the Harris house. He said he was in
the room and the Johnstown Kid fired
the shot that killed Harris. He said
the d — d fool didn't need to shoot for

as slick as a whistle. He said Joe
White wasn't there at all. He told me
just how they got in. and what they
said and how Harris woke up and how
the Kid fired. He told me which way
they ran and how they got away."
"Johnstown Kid" figured largely in
the trials. He was the man with the
gold front tooth which could easily
and quickly be removed and another
one made of porcelain or some similar
substance put in its place, completely
changing his appearance in a moment.
The man with the gold too>th was with
Dugan in Sheridan's saloon the night
before the murder. There were a num
ber of witnesses who testified to it, but
after the murder no one saw him.
ITS SILVER JUBILEE.
St. Stanislans' Bohemian Clinroh
Will Celebrate Tomorrow.
The silver jubilee of St. Stanislaus
Bohemian church, Western avenue and
Superior street will be celebrated to
morrow. This is one of the flourishing
Catholic parishes of St. Paul, the his
tory of which began in 1861, when
three families attended church and
listened to a sermon in Bohemian, de
livered in the Assumption church.
From 1861 St. Stanislaus congregation
steadily grew until the year 1872, when,
with the aid of the late Bishop Grace,
who donated a lot, a small wooden
church, 26x60, was built. This was ded
icated in honor of St. Stanislaus
Up to that time the parishioners at
tended the Assumption church, Rev.
Father Maly making frequent trips
from New Prague to give sermons in
the Bohemian tongue. From 1872 to
1577 a number of priests had charge of
the parish, among them being Rev.
Bast, Rev. Antonius, O. S. B.; Rev.
Steinocher and Rev. Stroelke.
The latter year, Rev. Tichy, of De
