RE LATION AND BECOME A FALL CITIZEN. HINCKLEY GETS A VICTORY. Wins Its Suit With the Kettle River Railroad Over the Old Bonds. 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 Wise, defendant. 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 Road. 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. I = 103 West Seventh Street.

Paul, as the articles of incorporation specified that the headquarters and principle offices should be here. The .sheriff made the re turn, which, under the law in this case, is luslve evidence. The company raised three objections to the judgment. It pleaded that the service was not sufficient and that the provision In the law making the sheriff's return conclusive is invalid and excusable negligence on its part. The court holds that the law was passed to fit cases of this kind, whore domestic corpora tions havo no officers within the state upon 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 that he mailed the summons is considered sufficient. The syllabus follows: Town of Hinckley, respondent, vs. Kettle Riv er R. R. Co., appellant. Gen. St. 1894, sec. 5203, providing for the service of process on domestic corporations which have no officers in the state upon whom legal service can be made, held to be "due process of law" and valid. Conceding, without deriding, that the pro vision making the return of the sheriff con clusive is Invalid, this would not render in valid the remainder of the statute, or service made In accordance with its provisions. The affidavit of the secretary of state con sidered and held to show service in accord ance with tho provisions of the statute. Where a municipality issues its bonds to aid In the construction of a railroad, the main tenance and operation of the road during the life of the railroad company, as fixed by its charter or articles of incorporation, is, by clear implication, either a condition of, or the consideration for, the grant of aid; and, if during that time tho company abandons the operation of Its road and tears up and re moves the track the municipality granting the aid had a cause of action against it on com mon law principles. Held, also, that upon the facts there was no error in the trial courts denying the applica tion of the defendant to vacate a default judgment against it, and for leave to appear and answer. Order affirmed. 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 terday are: W. R. Doxbury, respondent, vs. Willard Boice, et al., defendants; Clayton S. Boice, appellant. 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 discovered. 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. —Mitchell, J. Cordelia Ingalls, respondent, vs. C. E. Oberg, appellant. 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 insufficient. Third— An assignment of error that the court erred In granting a new trial, where the motion was made on two or more grounds, Is too general to be availing. Order affirmed! —Mitchell, J. Henry Watts and August Bartholdi, respond ents, vs. Benjamin P. Howard, appellant. When a question to a witness In terms calls for Incompetent evidence and no objec tion Is made to the question and the answer is responsive to it. It Is deiscretionary with the court whether the answer shall be strick en out. Every agency, whether general or special carries with it authority to do whatever Is usual and necessary to carry Into effect the principal power, and the principal cannot re strict his liability for acts of his agent thus within the apparent scope of his authority by private instructions not communicated to those with whom he deals. An agent with authority to purchase or sell has authority to purchase or sell In the usual and ordinary manner. An agent with authority to buy logs has authority to agree that the measurement of the logs shall be ascertained by a scale to be made in the usual and ordinary way and that they shall be paid for according to that scale. An assignment of error to several different parties of the charge of the court relatin-j to entirely different and distinct propositions is not In compliance with rule 9 of this court THE SAINT PAUL GLOBE, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 12, 1897. and will not be considered. Judgment af firmed. —Mitchell, J. \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 should be. 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. Judge Otis took the matter under advisement. Probate Court Order Affirmed. The appeal of William Rascher from the order of the probate court, removing him aa guaid!an of Carl W. Goes, was argued be foie Judge Otis yesterday, and the order of tho lower court affirmed. Rascher was re moved on the petition of the boy's mother, who alleged that Rascher did not treat him properly. Larimore May Want Them. William Gilmartln, Patrick Nugent, John M-cCuloch and Michael Talty. the quartette arrested on suspicion of having stolen four pieces of suiting, found in possession of one of them, were arraigned in U^e police court, yesterday, and the case continued till tomor row. The men came from Larimore, N. 1). Yesterday Chief Goss received a telegram from Chief of Police MeElroy, of Larimore, saying that a tailor shop in that city had recently been burglarized of four bo I's of cloth and asking that the prisoners be held ' until further Investigation. The Camford Case Dinmissetf. Mrs. J. F. Camford, accused of grand larceny, by J. H. Colwell, was discharged in the municipal court yesterday, upon motion of the prosecuting attorney. Colwell rented a room from Mrs. Camford and when in ar rears for rent, as she claimed, Mrs. Camford removed the furniture from the apartment. When the testimony showed that the furni ture alleged to have been stolen belonged also to Mrs. Camford, the case was dis missed. Cofiirt Calls Today.

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 Meeker island improvement is complet ed.

HORSES SWERVE* AND START OX A RUN AROUND TOST GROUNDS. 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 mountain coach. 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 Keeping:. 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- Women Should Remember that Lydia E, Pink ham's Liver Pills should be taken with Lydia E.i Pinkham's Vegetable Compound.

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. TIETZ IS ARRESTED. Another Turn in tlie Volks-i-eltung Family How. 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 recognizances." Col. Tietz does not appear to be at all alarmed over the situation. He de clares that he not only had nothing to do with charging Bergmeier with insanity, but that on the contrary he, it was, who induced Max Wolff to with draw the information of insanity, be fore the matter reached the sheriff's hands. "But this arrest is as nothing," add ed Col. Tietz, "to the article that ap peared in the Volkszeitung last night. The article was headed, "The Deed of a Rascal," and gave utterance to the most palpable falsehoods concerning me. I, today, served the receivers of the property with a notice of retrac tion, and if it is not made fully and fairly arrests for criminal libel will follow. The receivers will not be the ony ones to suffer from this procedure. There seems to be some one connected with that paper who is very fearful that 1 may be again employed on the paper, and that he will lose his posi tion." BARBERS' TROUBLES O'ER. Local nnd International Unions Batch Things Up. The differences existing between the local barbers' union, No. 31, and the international union will be settled amicably, by a compromise which will result in restoring the local union to good standing in the international or ganization. When the cases of L. Schwabel and G. C. Meisel, who claim to be entitled to sick benefits, were called in Judge Twohy's court yesterday, a continu ance until this morning was asked for and granted. W. E. Klapetsky, of Syracuse, N. V., the international sec retary, was present, and was given a proposition by the local union, looking to a settlement. He telepraphed its contents to the executive board and last evening received an answer ac cepting it. By this it is understood that the local union will pay up all its delinquent assessments and that the parent organization will pay the sick claims. This will result in a dis missal of the suits. At a meeting of the local union last evening it was decided to call in all the shop cards and to issue new ones. ACTION FOB DAMAGES. August Fronhoefer Begins Suit Against George Hensel. August Fronhoefer has brought an action against George Hensel, to re cover $3,000 damages which he claims to have sustained at the hands of the defendant. The plaintiff alleges that on Sept. 9 last, Mr. Hensel filed an in formation of insanity aaginst him in the offlce of the clerk of the probate court, and that as a result the plaintiff was taken before that cxiurt the fol lowing day, examined as to his mental condition and adjudged sane and not a proper subject for treatment in an in sane asylum. The plaintiff admits that he. spent some time in a Wis consin sanitarium, from which he emerged entirely cured. TYriIOID AND DIPHTHERIA. Secretary Bracken Says They're Too 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 gaining ground. Anti-toxine is being used in many places and with good re sults. Among the places where cases are reported are Hutchinson, Anoka, Buffalo Lake, Red Wing, St. James and Faribault. Dr. Reynolds, who is in charge of the veterinary department, announces that hog cholera continues unabated, and will until the ground freezes up solidiy. Every precaution is taken to arouse the interest and co-operation of the local health hoards to prevent the spread of the disease and to enforce a strict quarantine of pens where it ap pears. IS WAHPETON UNFRIENDLY? Said That the Citizens Ship Their Insane to Minnesota. Agent Gates, of the state board of corrections and charities, Is busy at present investigating the case of an insane patient, who was taken off a Northern Pacific train at Little Falls a few days ago. The man was a stranger there, and, as it seems, a stranger in the state, the board of cor rections and charities having evidence that seems conclusive that the citizens at Wahpeton, instead of resorting to legal process there, loaded the invalid on a train there and shipped him into Minnesota. Anyway, by the time the train reached Little Falls, the man was so obstreperous that the conductor (Silk Headquarter* of the Korthweat.) Globe— l2-11-'.*;, SIXTH AND ROSERT sTi., -ST. PAUL.

AROIXD THE HOTELS. Government Estimator ot Standing Timber In the City. W. E. Seelye, chief estimator of standing timber on Indian lands, was registered at the Merchants' yesterday, having just come down from the Red Lake reservation. He has a crew of twelve men working under him, and this force is divided into four squads of three men each, working on different sections. They will finish on Red Lake In about five months and will then go to the Leech, Winnebigoshish and Cass reservations. Mr. Seelye reports that there Is con siderable good timber— Norway nnd white pine— left on Red lake, although the choice sections were disposed of at the sale some time ago. A great many Chippewa* Indians are cuttint; and marketing the fallen timber, but there has been very little trespassing on the standing pine. * * • Congressman Joel P.

"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." * • • Q. B.
