Wins Its Suit With the Kettle River
Railroad Over the Old
Indians arc Indians, in the purview
of the law, whether they have aban
doned the tribal relations and decided
to live as near like the whites as they
may, or not. This, at least, was the
decision of- the supreme court yesterday
in the case of the state against Edward
Wise, who was accused of selling liquor
to the Indians in violation of law, the
purchaser being a former tenant of the
Sisseton reservation who had abandon
ed it to take up land under the allot
in. -:l of land; in m vc ralty.
The court holds that the statute is a
proper police regulation, passed in view
of the well-known social conditions,
habits and tendencies of the Indian
race. It is furf tr held to be a valid
exercise of polL'f- power, not arbitrary
nor class legislation; that it does not
abridge the liberty of citizens nor take
property without due process of law,
and consequently is not antagonistic
either to the state constitution or the
fourteenth amendment of the federal
constitution. It is on the same basis
as the prohibition of sales to minors,
habitual drunkards, etc.
The syllabus is as follows:
State of Minnesota, plaintiff, va. Edward
Gen. St. 1894, sec. 2002, forbids the sale of
Intoxicating liquors to any Indian, without re
gard to the question whether he has or has
not severed his tribal relations, accepted the
habits of civilization and become a citizen of
the United States by complying with the pro
visions of the United States "Land in Ssveral
ty Act" of Feb. 8, 1887.
As thus construed the statute is a valid
exercise of the police power of the state, and
is not in conflict with either sec. 33, art IV.
of the constitution of the state, or sec. 1 of
the 14th amendment of the federal constitu
tion. Order affirmed. —Mitchell, J.
LACK FOR HINCKLEY.
Win**. lis Suit With tlie Kettle River
The town of Hinckley has won its
-suit with the old Kettle River Rail
road company, involving: §14,000 bonds
With seven years* interest.
In 1888 the town of Hinckley issued $12,000
In bonds to aid in building four miles of the
road through that town and into the country
from -the main line of the St". Paul & Duluth.
Tbe bonds were turned over to the company
as soon as the line was completed, about Jan.
1, 188 S. The road was operated until March
1, 1890. The tracks were torn up and all the
rolling stock removed In 1891, and in 1894 the
town began this action to recover the bonds
or their value.
The company has no officers in this state,
but pretended to have officers in St. Paul, so
service upon the officers was made by filing
two copies of the summons with tlie secretary
of state, who mailed one to the officers in St.

The company raised three objections to the

whom service can be secured, and Is the very
best way of securing service in cases of this
kind. The affidavit of the secretary of state

In the construction of a railroad, the main

during that time tho company abandons the
operation of Its road and tears up and re

aid had a cause of action against it on com

error in the trial courts denying the applica

HE WAITED TOO LONG.
William Duxliury Must Stand An
other Law Suit.
Justice Mitchell reverses the order
of the lower court in the case of Wil
liam Duxbury, respondent, against Wil
lard Boice et, al., defendants, Clayton
S. Boice, appellant.
Duxbury was a trifle too slow. He
secured a judgment against Willard
Boice, and sold some property under
execution to satisfy it. Then after
twelve years he instituted supplemen
tary proceedings, attempting to have
a transfer of property made by Wil
lard Boice to Clayton S. Boice set aside
on the ground that it was fraudulent.
Duxbury won in the district court, but
the supreme court calls up section 513G
laws of 1594, providing that actions of
this kind must be brought within six
years of the time when fraud was dis
covered. Duxbury, having waited
nearly twelve, the decision of the lower
court in his favor is reversed and the
case is remanded for a new trial.
The syllabi of the decisions of yes
W. R. Doxbury, respondent, vs. Willard
Boice, et al., defendants; Clayton S. Boice,
An action by a judgment creditor to set
aside a conveyance by his debtor on the
ground that It was executed with intent to
defraud creditors, is one "for relief on the
ground of fraud," and the limitation of the
time within which such an action must be
brought Is that prescribed by Gen. St. ISOI,
Sec. 5136, Subd 6, to-wlt: Within six years
after "the discovery by the aggrieved party
of the fac*s constituting the fraud."
When such an action is brought more than
six years- after the commission of the acts
constituting the fraud it is incumbent on the
plaintiff to' allege and prove that he did not
discover the fraud until within six years be
fore the commencement of the action.
This provision of the statute being bor
rowed from er-uity must be construed In ac
cordance with the equitable principle, which
required the defrauded party to be diligent,
and which- deemed means of discovery as
equivalent to actual discovery. The facts
constituting the ffaud are deemed to have
been discovered when, with reasonable dili
gence, they could and ought to have been
Hence the burden is on the plaintiff to prove
not merely that he did not discover the
facts constituting the fraud until within six
years before tlie commencement of the ac
tion, but also that his failure to discover
them sooner was consistent with reasonable
diligence on his part and not the result of
his own negligence. Order reversed.
Cordelia Ingalls, respondent, vs. C. E. Oberg,
Held, that there was no error in the court's
refusing the defendant leave to- amend his
answer when the plaintiff rested. The fol
lowing rules applied:
First— ln reversing the action of the trial
court in denying a me-tlon to dismiss on the
ground that the plaintiff has failed to estab
lish a cause of action, an appellate court
will consider all the evidence In the case
and affirm the action of the trail court if
sufficient evidence was admitted to sustain
a verdict for the plaintiff, although not intro
duced until after the motion.
Second— A single general exception to the
refusal of the court to charge two or more
propositions, one of which Is erroneous, Is
Third— An assignment of error that the
court erred In granting a new trial, where
the motion was made on two or more grounds,

\OT A BACTERIOLOGIST.
Health Commissioner Stone's De
fense in the O'Connor Case.
The application of Capt. M. J. O'Con
nor for a writ of mandamus compell
ing Health Commissioner A. J. Stone
to reinstate Capt. O'Connor as as
sistant health commissioner, was
argued before Judge Otis yesterday
afternoon. Capt. O'Connor's applica
tion is based on the state law requir
ing state, county and city officials to
give honorably discharged union sol
diers the preference in the matter of
appointments to offlce, provided they
are physically and mentally qualified
to discharge duties of such offlce. In
his petition Capt. O'Connor recites
that he was, in Sept. 1862, enrolled as
a member of the Tenth Minnesota
regiment; that he afterwards received
an honorable discharge; that he was
appointed assistant health commis
sioner by Dr. Hoyt, the predecessor in
office of Dr. Stone, and that in March,
1595, Health Commissioner Stone dis
pensed with his services without cause.
No charge of unfitness, Incompetency
or dereliction of duty, so the petition
alleges, was preferred against him.
After discharging Capt. O'Connor, Dr.
Stone appointed Dr. J. L. Rothrock
assistant health commissioner, and
after the latter resigned, two years
later, George C. Perkins was appoint
ed. Neither of these gentlemen were
ever soldiers in the Union army, and
therefore Capt. O'Connor applied to
Dr. Stone to be reinstated. Dr. Stone
refused to do so.
The defense of Health Commissioner
Stone is that Capt. O'Connor was not
qualified to do the work he required
of the assistant health commissioner,
which, among other things, included
the conducting of a bacteriological
laboratory. Assistant Corporation At
torney Phillips, in behalf of the health
commissioner, further contended that
that official was the proper judge as to
what the qualifications of his assistant
In reply to this, Capt. O Connor s
counsel maintained that a bacterio
logical laboratory was not a necessary
nor valuable adjunct of the health de
partment, either in restricting the
spread of contagious disease or in
enabling the health department to
shorten the duration of the various
periods of quarantine.

WILL BEGIN WORK SOON.
Government Will Start Early on the
Meeker Island Dam.
Capt. Frederic V. Abbot, the chief of
the United States engineering corps of
this district, has just returned from a
tour of the district, his desire being
to acquaint himself thoroughly with it
before he enters upon the actual duties
of the office. When seen at his office
yesterday, he was poring over a map
of the proposed Mississippi river im
provement at Meeker island, and he
looked up long enough to say that that
work would now be pushed forward
vigorously; in fact, he has already been
engaged in getting estimates of cost
on the material to be used.
"The first thing necessary," 'said he,
"will be to get a road graded down to
the river and side tracks put in, and
this will be done this winter. Then
the work will actually be commenced
on the lock walls, and we have enough
money on hand to firish them; another
appropriation will be required for the
locks and gates, and the entire im
provement will cost not far from $500,
--000. We have not decided what kind of
stone to use in the construction; the
relative cost of the different kinds will
have to be taken into consideration. It
will also probably be necessary to buy
considerable new machinery for the
work, and the improvement will not be
completed for a couple of years at
least— you see a job costing half a mil
lion dollars is no slight undertaking."
The purchase of stone will doubtless
be let by contract, but the work will
in most probability be done by day
labor, although that point has not yet
been settled. This is decided by the
engineering department at Washing
ton, but is on the recommendation of
the local engineer, and Capt. Abbot
favors the d *,*•- labor plan.
The original plan for these reservoirs
also includes one at the mouth of the
Minnesota river, on the Mississippi, but
this will not be carried out until the

HORSES SWERVE* AND START OX
A RUN AROUND TOST
THEY RUN INT© A FENCE AND STOP
Occupants Jump Out of the Carriage
When tlie Horses Start Again,
Rnnning Into Town.
The eccentricity of Peter Kolc, a
hack driver employed at Rank's Seven
corners livery stable, almost broke up
a funeral procession at Fort Snelling
yesterday and was responsible for a
wild ride which badly frightened half
a dozen occupants of his carriage.
Kolc drove one of five carriages con
veying the friends of Mrs. William
Grisnole to the grave of her little
daughter at the post cemtery. The
procession started from the Grisnole
home, on Cleveland avenue, near West
Seventh street, with the body of the
dead girl in the post ambulance, while
the mother and friends of the family
followed in carriages. Kolc had four
women and two little playmates of
the dead girl in the second hack from
the ambulance. The solemnity of the
occasion was properly observed until
the procession reached a point near
the fort hospital, when Kolc's team
suddenly swerved out of the line and
the horses broke into a mad gallop up
the road. Before the occupants could
realize the situation they were being
whirled along at a wild speed, the car
riage rocking and . swaying like a
It was at first thought that Kolc's
team had started to run away, but eye
witnesses said he apparently made no
effort to control the animals, whose
speed increased with every jump.
Heads protruded from the other car
riages and soldiers doing guard duty
about the post paused to watch the re
sults. On went the horses, with low
ered heads, while the driver, it is said,
loosely held the. reins. The animals
made a quick turn to the left and
dashed upon the sidewalk. The car
riage toppled for a moment, but right
ed itself again when the team bolted
back into the street. The race con
tinued straight ahead for a short dis
tance, when the animals attempted to
cross the boulevard. A low fence crash
ed under the wheels of the carriage,
tearing the step from the vehicle, and
once more the horses swerved into the
roadway. Entering a portion of the
street the team rapidly executed a se
ries of right and left oblique move
ments, tearing from curb to curb, until
a collision with a fence at the end of
the thoroughfare brought them to a
standstill. During the dangerous ride
Kolc evidenced little concern in the ca
reer of the horses. The team had run
nearly half a mile and the women
waited until the funeral procession
came up with them, when they were
given places in the other carriages.
When Kolc's passengers jumped out
he quickly turned his horses About and
they started on another break-neck run
toward the city, never tightening the
reins until the animals, covered with
foam and bleeding from several cuts,
dashed puffing into the barn at Seven
corners. Mr. Rank was astounded at
the appearance of the team and car
riage and summarily jerked Kolc from
the box, accusing him of being drunk.
This the driver denied, and really ap
peared not to be under the influence
of liquor. He made no explanation,
however, and was ejected from the
stable. Mr. Rank said last night that
the man was either drunk or crazy;
he did not know which. Kolc has been
employed at the barn as a hostler and
was sent out on the hack yesterday as
a temporary expedient.
MAY HAVE HAD HIS MONEY,
Bnt If So, Only Had It for Safe
John Julian is of the opinion that he
received a large portion of law in the
police court yesterday and little in the
line of justice. Several days ago he
had Molly Daly arrested for ihe al
leged theft of $55 from him. The stoiy
told by Julian was to the effect that
he had been out riding with the wom
an, and that becoming under the in
fluence of liquor, he had given her the
money for safe keeping. At one
saloon visited by the couple Julian
claimed the woman left him !o look
out for himself and drove away with
the money. The case was tried in the
municipal court, yesterday, and the
Daly woman discharged. Judge Orr
holding that she had simply acted as
custodian of Julian's wealth and that
as no demand had been made upon
her for the return of the money, there
had been no theft. Julian was unable
to appreciate the fine leg3l point inas
much as he had never seen the Daly
woman before nor had any idea of
where to find her when he felt the
need of his $55. Julian says he is still
minus $55. The Daly woman denied
having received any money from
Julian, but in view of Judge Orris de-

TIL I.IK ANDERSON DEAD.
Kept Alive Forty-Two Days by
Tillie Anderson died at the city hos
pital last evening after having been
kept alive for forty-two days by means
of artificial respiration. The young
woman suffered from what is known
as Landry's paralysis, a disease af
fecting the respiratory organs and ulti
mately the limbs. The girl was taken
to the hospital Sept. 30. It was at
first thought that she was ill from
typhoid fever, but after developments
showed the disease to be the more
unusual Landry's paralysis. Shortly
after reaching the hospital the girl
was seized with a fit of strangulation.
The physicians at once sought to re
lieve her by raising her arms above
her head after the accepted means of
Inducing artificial breathing. The
patient revived and the strangling
ceased. From that time until the hour
of her death the artificial methods of
respiration were constantly employed
upon the young woman. For three
weeks nurses and physicians took
turns at the task of keeping the girl
alive and then the constant use of her
arms became very painful to the
patient. An examination showed the
young woman to possess ribs of a very
flexible nature an this led to a less
arduous means of assisting her res
piration. She was placed on what Is
known as a hot water bag cot, upon
her back, and a small water bag laid
upon her chest. One attendant then
performed the required work by press
ing upon the upper bag, thus forcing
the air out of Miss Anderson's lungs
and then relieving the pressure, allow
ing them to fill again. Throughout
the heroic treatment the patient has
preserved a healthful appearance, eat
ing and sleeping, while the faithful
attendant watched over her life, and
being at times able to talk, though the
latter effort caused her severe pain. A
few minutes cessation of the artificial
means of breathing would have caused
the patient's death and it was thought
possible by the physicians that she
might live even some years under the
peculiar affliction. She began failing
last evening, howeverr, and despite
the efforts of the physicians, died
shortly after 9 o'clock.

Another Turn in tlie Volks-i-eltung
Col. Edward Tietz appeared in the
municipal court yesterday morning, to
answer to the charge of conspiring to
shut the doors of an insane asylum
upon F. W. Bergmeier. Though there
was a warrant out for the arrest of
Col. Tietz on this charge, that gentle
man found his way to court without
the assistance of a deputy sheriff. In
stead, he was accompanied by his at
torney, Charles D. Loud, of Georgia.
Mr. Loud waived the formal reading of
the complaint, and the trial of the
case was set for Monday. Col. Tietz
was then allowed to depart on "his own
Col. Tietz does not appear to be at
all alarmed over the situation. He de

Against George Hensel.
August Fronhoefer has brought an
action against George Hensel, to re

TYriIOID AND DIPHTHERIA.

Prevalent in the State.
Typhoid fever and diphtheria are be
coming too prevalent in the state, says
Secretary Bracken, of the board of
health. He is in receipt of reports
daily from different towns and cities
showing that those dread diseases are

sults. Among the places where cases
are reported are Hutchinson, Anoka,

Agent Gates, of the state board of

Congressman Joel P. Heatwole, of
Northfield, was registered at the Mer
chants' yesterday, coming to the Capi
tal city on what he said was a purely
business trip. "When the word politics
was mentioned, Joel looked vacantly
at a crack in the ceiling and professed
he had not heard of anything of the
kind out his way. He was interested
in learning that some Republican pa
pers had referred to him as a possible
gubernatorial timber, and denied that
he had made any move along that line
as yet. "In fact," said he, "I haven't
mapped out my political course or in
tentions for next year; it's rather early
to do that yet."
