COUNCIL IN TWO FACTIONS.
Even Adjournment Couldn't Shut
Off the DiacuMlon— - Newa of
The Woman's congress, which has
been In session in the Unitarian church
Bince Monday, adjourned yesterday
afternoon in great excitement. The
quiet of four days' prosaic delibera- ,
tions was dispelled in one short hour,
and when the meeting broke up at 6
o'clock, the groups of women that left
the auditorium were excitedly talking,
ay the entire body of women had been
talking in open parliament. The cause
of the commotion was Mrs. William
G. Foster's paper on "The Relation of
the School to the Home," which she
presented Monday afternoon in the
opening session of the congress. That
paper was practically an arraignment
of the teachers as a class, and incor
porated a score or more
"don'ts" to which they took
violent exception. The resume of
the paper presented in the daily news- j
papers attracted the entire working l
body of school teachers; those who had
not heard it read in meeting, read ex
tracts of it in the press, and to say
they were indignant, conveys a very
faint idea of the spirit in which Mrs.
Foster's "don'ts" were received. The
paper was presented as one in the aft
ernoon scries, was largely theoretical
like the most, but went straight to the
bottom of things, and In plain lan
guage laid clown rules for the observ
ance of etiquette, laws of personal
cleanliness and directions for social de
portment. At the time the paper was
originally presented it was received
with a show of enthusiasm, and was
ted with applause by those in at
tendance on the council.
Yesterday afternoon, at the conclu
sion of the formal literary programme,
Miss Grace Williams, aa the chosen
representative of the Central High
school, presented a formal protest in
Avriting, and the matter was immedi
ately taken up by the house. A large
number of the teachers were present, j
and there was much warm discussion j
on both sides. No formal action w.is j
taken. It was rather a forum, in which
opinions were expressed than a tribu
nal of justice-. Teachers, members of
the council and visitors from out of
town, were among the speakers; there
were even some from St. Paul, and the j
session was altogether the liveliest in
the history of the Woman's council. In
point of excitement, it discounted any I
In the early part of the programme
Mrs. Leach, who was presiding, stated
that a request had been forwarded
to her for the reading of a protest
against a paper which had been pre
sented to the council in the Monday
afternoon session. Mrs. A. E. Higbee |
made a motion from the floor of" the
house, that the council would be glad !
to hear the paper; Mrs. W. W. Rich I
seconded the motion, and the vote car
ried. Mrs. Leach then stated that the
reading must follow the designated
programme, as the papers could not
When the last paper had been given
the protest was called for, and Miss
Williams came forward with her pa
per. In substance, this contained the
representation of the teachers of the
Central High school, who entered a
public protest against a public arraign
ment of the teachers of Minneapolis
on that platform. It referred to the
general and widespread indignation on
the matter, and stated that all the
teachers of the city, as well as many
private individuals, would have joined
In the protest, had there been time for
concerted action. It stated that the
teachers were grossly maligned, and
as the body of teachers represent the
highest interest, they should not be In
sulted with impunity. When Miss
Williams finished her reading, ther<*>
was an outburst of applause and a
buzz of comment. The paper was short
and scathing, and it was like the ex
plosion of a bomb. There were women
making ready to speak, when Mrs. T
B. Walker rose. She said it seemed
quite out of order for the teachers to
present such a protest in such a time
and place, as the council in no way
pretended to indorse the papers that
were given in its meeting. It afforded
the opportunity for all to speak, and
did not commit itself to any course
of action thereby. Mrs. Walker had
hardly taken her seat before Mrs. Ade
laide Rosalind Kirsehner Dutton, of
New York, came to the platform ':<•••'
expressed her opinion as a visitor and
as friendly to the sentiment of the
original paper. She said: "I am in
terested in woman's work, and glad
to hear them discuss their different
interests. If we never know each oth
er's opinions, we will become narrow,
however proficient In studies we may
be, we lose something, if we do not
associate with people of the world,
from whom we learn many things. I
wish to say a few words in defense
of the reprimand so delicately given
and so gently expressed, that no wom
an here could take exception, if it were
expressed to her. A teacher is a grand
woman, who takes the place of a
mother to many little ones. If she is
not to teach by example and personal
appearance, who can?" It is better
to be told of our faults and fallings
as it has been done, gently and kindly.
If we cannot help one another, how
can we be helped?"
Miss Fannie Forester, a teacher lv Centra!
high school, was on her feet in an instant to
make reply to Mrs. Dutton. She said: "There
is no doubt we can help each other and are
ready to receive kindly suggestion, but the
teachers of Minneapolis are representatives of
the most cultured class and many of them
have taken part in this council, giving some
of the most noteworthy papers, and are ladies
capable of occupying positions in best of so
ciety. Is it necessary to tell such women to
go and wash?"
At this point. Miss Ava Sumbardo, of St.
Paul, requested from the audience that Mrs.
Foster's paper be re-read, as many of those
present had not heard it. A motion was made
and carried by a rising vote. Mrs. Foster
came forward Immediately and read the ob
jectionable document, "Don'ts" and all, ex
cept that portion which is was discovered
had been lost through numerous handlings.
The reading was received with impartial ap
plause and the excitement broke out afresh.
There was promise of a fresh discussion.
Mrs. W. W. Rich attempted to pour oil on
the troubled waters by admitting that all
persons had faults, that her children had,
that she had been a teacher, and she knew
i'he had faults. Other teachers talked. Much
was said on both sides. Miss Wetherel spoke
earnestly and felt that something was to
be admitted for each. She thought teachers
should be considered as part of humanity,
not as a class by themselves, singled out for
reproach and reprimand, any more than
persons of other professions. She held her
position between both sides when she further
said that she was sure Mrs. Foster's paper
had been written with a view to passing
through the body of the council, before which
it was read, to the broad, wide circles be
yond, whom it might influence and benefit..
The discussion showed no signs of abatement
as the afternoon waned, but the hour of 6
was considered time for adjournment, and
the sixth annual congress of the Woman's
Council came to a close In an unprecedented
flutter of excitement. A paper had been pre
sented that aroused indignation among the

The programme of the afternoon was pro
vided by the members of the departments
of philosophy, science and art, and involved
the presentation of a series of papers. The
osopby, Christian science, art and parlia
mentarism represented the platform of the
day. The papers were. Introduced by a piano
duet by Miss Jean E. Wakeman and Mrs.
Edgar W. Runyon, and interspersed with a
song by Mrs. Frank Crowell.
THE MORXIXG SESSION.
The first business was the report of the
committee on constitution and by-laws, by
which several changes were made. The
constitution was considered article by arti
cle, aud each in turn created more or less dis
cussion. In order not to give any suggestion
of restricting the council membership the
first article was altered to omit the sense
that any society entering the council should
not be committed to any principle or method
of any other society in the council.
Another change incorporated the just pun
ishment of societies that are delinquent in
dues, by denying them representation in the
annual meeting. The personnel of the execu
tive committee is to be changed and seven
members Instead of 15 shall constitute a
quorum. The time of the annual meeting
was definitely set for the last Saturday in
November, instead of, as hitherto, the morn
ing of the closing day of the yearly congress.
One of the chief amendments was ta strike
out tho by-law providing for the omission
of tho monthly parliaments during the sum
mer months and in November. By the change
the open parliaments will be furnished every
month, and instead of fewer sessions, the
council is pledged to more in the year.
It was deemed that a quarterly report from
the treasurer was sufficient, and the necessity
of monthly statements was withheld. Several
other minor changes were made, all with a
view to expediting the working order of the
council and increasing its general efficiency.
The election of officers was conducted with
out excitement or delay. For the greater part
of the former incumbents were re-elected:
Mrs. W. B. Leach, president; Mrs. W. W.
Rich, second vice president; Mrs. L. W. Bal
lard, recording secretary; Mrs. T. B. "Walk
er, extension secretary; Mrs. S. B. Lovejoy,
treasurer; Mrs. R. J. Mendenhall, auditor.
The new officers elected were: Mrs. A. E.
Hlgbec*, first vice president, in place of Mrs.
Ell Torrance; Mrs. F. H. Barnard, parlia
mentary secretary, to succeed Mrs. W. O.
Frybergcr; Mrs. J. B. Phelps, correspond
ing secretary, to succeed Mrs. C, E. Conant,
who has removed from the city.
QUEER LEGAL HEALS,
They Are Alleged in the Century
It Is only when the courts fall out with
themselves that somo of their inner work
ings come to the surface. A rather pecu
liar deal came to light through the testi
mony of John W. Arctander, in the Cen
tury Piano company case this morning.
In testifying as to the acts of Peterson,
as assignee, Mr. Arctander stated that
some time before the first allowance of as
signee fees was made, Peterson came to him
and told him that he was fearful that Judge
Ueland, as receiver of tho Washington bank,
would garnishee what might be coming to
him from the estate of the Century Piano
company, to meet a debt he owed the bank.
He wanted to know if there was not some
way that it could be fixed 60 that Ueland
could not grt it. Ho propsed that he draw
the money in advance, so that when it was
allowed there would Ik* nothing coming to
.Mr. Arctander stat' d that he went to Judge
Russell and laid the whale matter before
him. Judge Russell, while he would not
make an order allowing Peterson to draw out
any money, would verbally instruct him that
he might take out $1,500, but that it was not
a usual thing to do. The effect of this per
mission was in fact to allow Peterson, as an
officer of the court, working for the inter
ests of tho Century Piano company, to get
the best of Judge Ueland, another offic. r
of the court, worl Ing for the interests of the
creditors of the Washington bank. Peterson
drew the money and afterward was allowed
$2,500 as fees. Without any further per
mission, i's 'ti rson, he claimed, had again
drawn out ?1,50fl of the money of the estate
to head off Ueland.
The witness testified that Peterson was a
stockholder of the Century Piano company
to the extent of $6,000, and that as such he
had brought suit aginst himself, and that
fact was set up In the answers of some of
the stockholders. Regarding the picture
which Peterson had bought for Sm, witness
bad offered him $50 for it. and Peterson had
laughingly said he might want it himself.
The offer still held good. These were the
main charges testified to by the attorney.
Judge Russi 11 was seen in reference to the !
verbal order allowing Mr. "Peterson to with
draw $1,500 ii om the money iv his hands.
He stated that he was seen by Mr. Arctan
der and Mr. Petersou, and that they made the
showing that the money was due Peterson,
and more too, and upon the strength of that
alone he allowed the money withdrawn.
"I had not the least idea what the pro
ceedings he wished to avoid were," said he,
"nor was It made known to me that It was
for the purpose of heading off Judge Ueland,
as receiver of the Washington bank. That
is all news to me. They simply came to mo,
and asked for an advance of that amount,
and as soon as I satisfied myself lhat the
amount might be drawn, I allowed it."
Anna S. Keyes was quite an important wit
ness for the plaintiffs. She was cashier for
the assignee, and handled the money. She
swore that Peterson had twice secured small
amounts from her to purchase buggy varnish
with. There was no charge, nor had any
been ordered against Mr. Peterson for a
writing desk, some deer heads, a chair, or
a bicycle, all of which It is claimed he took
from the stock on hand. She had written
several letters for Mr. Peterson, all of which
were in the letter-press book.
At this point the plaintiffs became quite
excited, because some of the pages from this
book were missing. They showed on the
index, but were not in the book.
"They have been torn out," cried Mr. Arc
tander. "We have a witness here who saw
those letters in that book only last Monday,
and took notations from them."
Mr. Peterson apeared unconcerned at this
state of affairs, keeping quiet until his turn
comes. The case will be resumed this morn
ALIBI POlt FRAZER.
Defense in Howard Case Impeach
ing Billing's' Testimony.
Frank M. Nye opened the defense in the
case of the state aginst John R. Howard
yesterday morning. Mr. Nye was amply well
fitted to outline the proofs, having beeu pros
ecuting attorney when the former case came
before the grand Jury, and when Billings was
tried on an indictment for perjury.
Mr. Nye showed that the whole fabric of
the state was built upon the claim by Bill
ings that William E. Fraser came to him on
a certain evening and procured him to meet
with the defendant, for the purpose of brib
ing a juror at Buffalo. The defense would
prove that Fraser was not In Minneapolis
at that day. To that end. among dozens of
well known citizens of Fargo, Judge McCon
nell would come to the stand and testify that
on that same day Fraser appeared at his
court and in his court room at Fargo, and
had a case continued for the Great North
ern road. County Surveyor Abbott, of Hen
nepin county, would also swear that he met
Fraser that same day in Fargo, and to prove
that it was the day in question would
produce his expense account to show It.
Tho speaker dwelt upon the character of
Billings, flaying him without mercy, and as
serting that any number of people could be
brought who would testify to his bad reputa
tion. In regard to the money paid Billings
by the road, it was in payment of some
service of some time before, and was an open
William E. Fraser was called and swore
to having gone to Fargo on business for the
road on the day in question. A telegraphic
dispatch was produced, showing that he did
go there on order, aud the very ticket he
used on the train was produced, bearing the
punch marks of the conductor.
E. T. Abbott, county surveyor, gave his
evidence as outlined by Mr. Nye In the after
C. F. Aldenson, an attorney, swore that he
was at Fargo tho same day arguing some
motion in court. He saw Fraser there and
also spoke to Abbott.
Judge McConnell came on and testified
exactly as outlined by Mr. Nye in the open-
I ing. Aside from him, Chester Flint, S. F.
I Regan, Edward Kelley. J. J. Hughes, H. R.
j Rumney and F. J. Fridler all testified posi
tively that Fraser was in Fargo.
Then taking up the matter of Howard and
I Fraser being at the Brunswick hotel that
I night, Robert Ray, a clerk at that hotel,
testified very positively that he was present
' in the hotel offlce all that evening, and that
neither Howard nor Fraser were there. Ho
was quite certain about it. There was still
more to come when court adjourned.
GRAND JURA' KEPT BUSY.
Charges oi Wholesale Frauds Being
When the grand jury gathered at the court
house yesterday it was with the expectation
of being allowed to draw up Its report in
peace and make its report. But there was
■ work on hand.
The corridors were filled with merchants,
commission men, butchers and wholesalers
j of Minneapolis and St. Paul to an unlimited
I number and they were excited. They wanted
' an indictment against a Central avenue re
tailer named Louis Levin, who, they claimed,
; lyid done them up in wholesale fashion. They
wanted to tell the jury that he had given
them ail a splendid order for whatever they
i had to sell and that it had been delivered per
The large amount of provisions coming to
! the place made them suspicious, however,
and they began to call upon the purchaser
for collections. Then they discovered that
I the goods they had sold were not at the
place they had been delivered to. They
claim that the purchaser carted them away
I as soon as received, and that they have been
robbed. They wanted an Indictment against
the man, and they clamored for it.
M. D. Purdy was sent for, a,nd went before
the grand Jury to superintend; the taking of
testimony in the case. Therefore the work
of the grand jury was not completed as they
had expected it would be.
Chief of Police Smith was before the jury
late in the afternoon, and Mayor Pratt was
called, but the latter was informed later that
he would not be needed. The Jury will com
plete its labors some time today, it is thought
by those having it in charga.

FRESHMEN ELECT OFI'K KllS
Ami Make Arrange men tn for the
Annual Cane Rush.
For, Io! the freshmen held a meeting yes
terday afternoon, but the chapel still stands !
Most appropriately they cast their presiden
tial ballot for a man hy the name of Grass.
Mr. John Grass is a "barb," and the frater
nity men were obliged to consent to his elec
tion, s-o they entered no candidate. Put these
smooth electioneers, the "frats," had held a
cam ns at noon, and had prepared a ticket
which swept all before it, and the remaining
honors were gobbled by the Greek letter men.
After the usual amount of jolly scrapping,
Paul Smith was elected vice president. Rob
ert Coombps received unanimous choice for
secretary. Here a little wonTy altercation be
gan and ballots were cast, lil;ew;s3 any O.her '
bit of handy articles. Finally a treasurer was
secured in the person of a gentleman named
Cook. Rut he was so busy with his own
broth that he courteously refused to serve.
His will was overruled, and he must serve.
At this point all rules were formally suspend
ed, and the important topics of football and
cane-rush were entered into. Fred Glover,
the popular ex-Central high captain, was se
lected to lead the brawny warriors of the
class of "nitty-nit" to battle on the gridiron
field with the sophomores. After the fiesh

captain of the cane-rushers, enough had ap
parently been accomplished, for with one ac

PLAINLY A MURDER.
Mystery of the Disappearance of
John Probser Cleared.
The lifeless body of John Prosser was found
near Herman, Minn., yesterday. A telegram
to that effect was received by J. H. Prosser,
of 414 Fifteenth avenue southeast, the boy's
father. John was IS years of age, and left
Minneapolis the later part of July to work for
a farmer near Herman. He received his
wages, and stated in his last letter that he
was on his way home. This was Oct. 6, and
up to yesterday nothing was heard or s -en of
the young man.
The anxious father wrote letter after let
ter of Inqury. but to no effect. He felt sure
that his son had met with foul play, as he
frequently wrote home. The services of the
police department were enlisted and other let
ters sent. No trace was found during the
month of inquiry until the receipt of the
above telegram yesterday from Charles
When he was paid off John Is supposed to
have had a largo amount of cash. All Indi

THEY HAD HARD LICK.
Minneapolis Hunters Return Di.s-
Inspector Oscar Hicks, of the police de
partment; Fred Chapin, assistant city clerk;
A. Sowall, Edward and Robert Taylor, who
have been on a two weeks' hunting trip, re
turned to Minneapolis yesterday a disgusted
lot. They were camped five miles east of
Tamarac station, north of Brainerd. One day
when they had gone out to perfect a cam
paign against a herd of deer, the stove in
the camp had been untrue to its calling, and
the result was that nothing but burning em
bers was left when they returned. The loss
will foot up to about $300, which includes
Hicks' valuable hunting dog and a rifle
presented him by Phil Scheig. Ouus, cart
ridges, clothing and considerable venison
make up the rest of the liabilities.

abroad have passed resolutions which make
Mr. Little active manager, and L. P. Hub
bard treasurer of the company.

death of thirty persons. A wedding
party was returning from the church
to the home of the bride. All were in
one wagon, a huge vehicle drawn by
eight horses. The road along which
they drove crosses the railway on the
level, and the driver, either through
carelessness or ignorance of the train
schedule, pushed his swiftly moving
horses upon the crossing just as the
express train came up. The locomo
tive struck the vehicle squarely, kill
ing many members of the party out

soon expired in frightful agony. Not
a member of the party escaped.
