County Attorney Dismisses the
The jcint indictment charging James Dough

county attorney. This is the case in which
Stella Maslow: ka, the complaining witness,
disappeared after the trial of Daughterty
had begun. As only elevrn jurors had been
6ecvjrrd. the prosecution dropped the case
until the girl could be found. She put in an
appearance, about two weeks later, and said
ehe had been with friends in Minneapolis.
Ccunty Attorney Anderson subsequently
learned that Stella had been paid $100 to
go away. The ccunty attorney suc^eedeJ in
inducing Stella's mother and sister to hand
the money to him, whereupon Mr. Anderson
turned It over to the county treasurer for
safe kesping. Since th?t time the ounty at
torney says he has ascertained that Stella Ins
eisned an affidavit that will render the con
viciion of Dougherty and Gahagan Impos
sible. Consequently he asked that the indict
ment be nolled. Mr. Anderson instructed the
county treasurer to pay the $100 to Georfc'*

WILLIAM P. BICKEL AGAIN
On Triul on the Last of All Indict
nientd \«.iliist Him.
The trial of William F. Bickel on the last
Indictment hanging over his head, that
charging him with the larceny of the Nusser
notes, began yesterday forenoon. There were
few spectators present, the case, apparently,
attracting little interest.
W. H. McDonald appeared as counsel for
Mr. Bickel, and County Attorney Anderson
sat in the prosecutor's chair. The work of
securing a jury began about 11 a. m., and so
rapidly did it progress that when court ad
journed for the noon recess ten jurors had
In the afternoon the jury box was filled in
less than ten minutes. The complete jury
comprises thf: following citizens:
George W. Dilley, Charles L. Englin. Frank
D. Freeman, Homer H. Hoyt, Abraham A.
Davis, A. P. Hendrickson, A. M. Lambie,
Herbert R. George, M. J. Klaus. Joseph M.
Hanson, Charles Hallowell, E. N. Kirk.
Owing to the fact that Attorney McDonald
was afflicted with a sore throat, rendering it
difficult for him to speak, court adjourned
at his request until 10 a. m. today.
Mr. Anderson suggested to the court that
as John W. Nusser Sr. could net talk Eng
lish, an interpreter ought to be provided.
Mr. McDonald did not think an interpreter j
would be necessary, but the court appointed
Charles Passavant interpreter.
In all probability today will witness the be
ginning and the end of the trial proper. It |
is understood that the county attorney will I
place Mr. Nusser, the complaining witness,
on the stand, and that Mr. Nusser will tes
tify in accordance with the statements con
tained In his nffldavit. the substance of which
the Globe has already published.

GRIFFIN WAS SERENE,
But the Pistol Shot Wan Back of
A pistol shot at the entrance to the alley
leading to the rear entrance of "Mayor""'
Griffin's saloon, 33 East Seventh street, sliort-
I ly after 9 o'clock last evening, created con
j siderable excitement in the vicinity, and
I crowds of people rushed toward the sound
! with Officers Dave Hennessey, Swenson and '
O'Neill to ascertain what was the trouble '
The alleyway was soon choked with curious i
people, but no victim of a bullet could be
found, and the investigation of the police
men failed to throw much light on the af
fair further than to find a rumor that there
had been a fight in the "mayor's office " I
and Ihat the combatants had adjourned to !
! the alley to settle the matter. It was said !
| that one of the men concerned was badly j
I beaten by his antagonist, but he cauld not be !
The officers visited the saloon to inquire i
into the affair, but were promptly and em- !
phatically turned down by Mayor Griffin. He i
declared that it was a mistake to suppose '
that any such breach of the peace as a fight ;
had taken place in his saloon, and he re- !
gretted that there should be the least sus- j
picion that a vulgar fisticuff, such as Mayor !
Doran allowed to come off in his office some I
time ago, should have taken place in his |
"office." He really knew nothing of any
trouble, the "mayor" said, and had heard
nothing whatever of any pistol shot.

HAVE THE RECORDS
TRANSFER OF AN IMPORTANT AC
TION FROM CANADIAN TO
V. S. COURTS
INVOLVING RAILWAY BONDS.
MORPHY, EWING & GILBERT WILL
FILE THE ACTION IN A FEW
OREAT WESTERN DEFENDANT.
ET<»r«-i«rn Corporal inn Refuse*) to Ac
cept a Settlement Suggested by
the Railway Company.
In the course of the next few days
an Important suit will be filed in the
United States circuit court for the dis
trict of Minnesota against the Chicago,
St. Paul & Kansas City Railway com
pany, the Metropolitan Trust company,
of New York city, and Robert H. Ben
sen, of London, England. The plain
tiffs are the liquidators or receivers of
the Commercial bank, of Winnipeg,
Man. Messrs. Morphy, Ewing and
Gilbert, of St. Paul, are the attorneys
for the plaintiffs.
The suit is brought to recover judg
ment against the Chicago. St. Paul &
Kansas City Railway company on
overdue coupons amounting to about
$9,000, which the Commercial bank re
fuses to exchange for stock of the de
fendant railway company, and also to
compel the Metropolitan Trust com
pany and R. H. Benson to begin fore
closure proceedings under the mortgage
deed, and, in the event of their refus- J
ing, to have new trustees appointed
and the trusts enforced. The action is
the result of a series of deals, some
what complicated in their aspect.
E. P. Morphy, of counsel for plaint
iffs, outlined the history of the matter
to a Globe reporter yesterday, in
substance as follows:
In 18S8, the Minnesota Northwestern
Railroad company was reorganized un- j
der the name of the Chicago, St. Paul j
& Kansas City Railway company,
which latter company took over the
franchises and all the assets of the for
mer company. On Jan. 1, 1889, the
Kansas City railway company extend- j
ed a general mortgage to the Metropol- j
ltan Trust Company of New York, and j
Robert H. Benson, of London. For the j
purpose of paying off and retiring all j
the bonds which had been issued by the
Minnesota Northwestern Railroad com
pany, the Kansas City company issued i
certain gold mortgage bonds which ]
they secured by the general mortgage j
mentioned. The Commercial Bank of j
Winnipeg became the owner of forty- j
five of these gold mortgage bonds of !
the par value of $1,000 each. Subse- j
quently, the Commercial bank became \
insolvent, and liquidators or receivers \
were duly appointed to wind up Its af- !
fairs. Among the assets of the bank i
were these gold mortgage bonds, which '
the liquidators now hold with 405 in- i
terest coupons of the value of $20 each, j
all of which are overdue.
In the fall of 1892 a reorganization of the i
Chicago, St. Paul & Kansas City Railway |
company was effected and under the reorgan- i
ization scheme, the parties who controlled the |
Kansas City company, incorporated under the j
laws of Illinois under the name of the Chi- j
eago Great Western Railway company. This j
last company leased from the Kansas City
company its rolling stock and franchises and j
is now operating the road as a lessee. As
a part of the reorganization scheme, the Chi
cago Great "Western agreed to assume all the |
rolling stock lease warrants and all the gold i
mortgage bonde, and also agreed to exchange !
for those bonds stock of the Chicago Great
At the time the last reorganization scheme j
was approved of, a meeting of the stock- I
holders of the Chicago, St. Paul & Kansas
City company was held in London and an |
assessment was levied on the holders of the I
gold mortgage bonds. The holders agreed
to exchange their bonds for stock in the Chi
cago Great Western.
On Nov. 2. 1892. the Chicago Great Western I
made a trust deed to the Manhattan Trust
company, of New York, to secure the holders
of the stocA When the bonds were sur
rendered tb^3' were not cancelled, but they
all passed under the control of the Chicago
Great Western Railway company, which com- I
pany now holds all the bonds of the Kansas
City company except the 45 bonds in the
possession of the liquidators of the Commer
cial bank, of Winnipeg.
"The Chicago Great Western,"continued Mr.
Morphy." has offered to give its stock in ex
change for those forty-five bonds, but the
liquidators of the bank refuse to accept it.
Accordingly, on Jan. 6, last, the liquidators
applied to the court of Queen's Rench for in
structions as to what course to take, and the
court ordered them to commence the suit
against the Chicago, St. Paul & Kansas City
Railway company, the .Metropolitan Trust
company, of New York; and R. H. Benson, of
London, to enforce the payment of the over
due coupons and also to enforce the provis
ions of the trust mortgage securing the bonds
now held by the liquidators.
"The papers in the case." concluded Mr.
Morphy. "have just arrived from Winnipeg,
including copies of all the trust, deeds and the
report of that meeting in London. The mat
ter is receiving my. close .mention, and the
action will be besun at once."
The Sherman Substitnte Is to Be
WASHINGTON, Jan. 18.— The house com
mittee on commerce today voted to report
the i'lti-scalplng bill, in the form of a sub
stitute prepared by Mr. Sherman, of New
York. The substitute follows the general
lines of the original bill, with some addi
tional features. It places a penalty on rail
road officers who deal with scalpers. Here
tofore the plan has been to hold the cor
poration liable, but the new provision ex
tends the liability to officials, making them
subject to a misdemeanor, with fine or im
prisonment on conviction. A new paragraph

seemed as though my heart was in my

not walk around and I could not lie

action to a penalty of $100 in excess of the

Evidence Takei by the South Da
CHICAGO, Jan. 18.— The railroad commis
sioners of South Dakota took evidence today
at the offices of tie CWcago, Milwaukee &
St. Paul In the case of a petition filed by
the shippers of their state for the reduction
of freight rates, i The roads are fighting
against the proposed reduction with all their
power, and are basing their fight on the
assertion that any further reduction of
freight rates will be ruinous to them. The
evidence heard today was all given by the
railroads, and was along that line.
TEXAS RATES RATTLED.
The Western Lines Are Involved In
CHICAGO, Jan. 18.— Passenger rates from
points in the territory of the Western Pas
senger association to Texas are in a bad
state of demoralization, and as matters now
stand there are few trains run into that ter
ritory at the present time that are paying
the expenses of operation. The demoraliza
tion is laid by the association lines at th"
door of the Pittsburg & Gulf, against which
all sorts of charges are made by its com
petitors. One charge made against it is that
it has been carrying passengers for nothing
after they had been secured by another road
It is said to subordinate all things to its
policy of building up Port Arthur, and the
I Missouri, Kansas & Texas, which is as deep
ly interested in that territory as the Pitts
burg & Gulf, is making a hard fight to re
tain its traffic. The result is that the north
ern connections of both roads are suffering,
but are powerless in the matter.

defendant's counsel, E. E. McOonald,
the court adjourned until Thursday
morning, when Eckhardt's examina
tion will be concluded and Capt. Han
nay again be put on the stand to tes
tify upon a number of points.
At the opening of the morning ses
sion of the court defendant's attorney
asked permission to call a witness out
of the regular order, which the presl
i dent of the court granted. Private
j John Jacobson, of Company D, Third
j infantry, was then sworn, and testi
fied that he was present in the barber
shop when Lippert came in and talked
of the trial with a number of people
in the shop. He had heard him talk
about the matter for five or six min
utes, and heard him say that Eckhardt
was no good, and witness said from
the conversation he thought that Lip
pert wanted Eckhardt to get the worst
of the trial. The defense tried to get
witness to testify to what else Lippert
said about the matter, but witness
could remember nothing else.
The defense then called another pri
vate, who testified that he also had
heard portions of the conversation in
the barber shop. In Eckhardt's testi
mony, as given below, the defense tried
to show that Lippert had a personal
feeling against the accused.
Private Eckhardt entered a complete
denial of the charges of insubordina
tion, claiming that he was neither in
solent or defiant, that he had always
behaved himself since he entered the
In opening, Mr. McDonald, his at
torney, upon direct examination, took
him back to the Caldwell affair. Eck
hardt testified that shortly after Capt.
Hannay had called him to his tent and
asked him to subscribe to the paper
•which contained charges against Cald
well, there was a summary court mar
tial at which Caldwell was discharged
from the service. Eckhardt said he
was the only witness, in fact one of
the participants, and yet he was not
called as a witness. Caldwell after
wards brought the matter up before
the board of officers, who investigated
the charges and granted him a straight
discharge, which entitled him to enlist
again. Eokhardt also testified that he
had gone into the orderly room shortly
after the trial and that Lippert had
said that Capt. Hannay was warm in
the collar, and wild, and accused everv
non-ccmml?sioned officer of having pur
jured themselves in their testimony in
the Caldwell case. Eckhardt testified
at considerable length as to Lippert's
threatening to get even with him some
time if he said anything to the captain
about what he had said about the cap
tain being mad. Eckhardt claimed
that he told Lippert that he would tell
the truth regardless of the consequen
ces. Sergeant Martlick had said he
was going to report to Capt. Hannay
Lippert's statements. Eckhardt in his
testimony said he thought Martlick did
report the matter to Capt Hannay, but
nothing ever came of it.
Eckhardt then related the incident of
the drill Dec. 21, upon which the specifi
cations against the accused are based.
He denied that he was insolent or de
fiant. He explained at length his ac
tions on that morning. He was in the
orderly room when the company fell in
for the second time, and was about
a half minute late in getting to ranks.
Capt. Hannay said to him, "Eckhardt
you are late." "No captain, I am not
late; I fell in when the company first
fell in," witness said. Capt. Hannay
said in reply to this, "What, do you
mean to call me a liar?" To which" he
replied. "No, captain, Ido not, but you
have been misinformed about me."
The accused claimed in his testimony
that Capt. Hannay arraigned him
twice for being drunk, but that he had
denied it on both occasions. Eckhardt
then illustrated the difference in the
drill by Capt. Hannay and by Lieut. By
roade. He thought Lieut. Byroade was
correct in his direction of the drill, be
cause when he told the captain about
the difference in drill, captain said
something to the sergeant, and the
I drill was afterwards gone through un
j der the direction of the sergeant, after
| the fashion of the lieutenant. Eck
hardt's testimony as to the conversa
tion in the orderly room differed ma
, terially from the evidence given by
| witnesses for the prosecution in many
particulars. His statement of the facts
connected with the Incident of the
morning of Dec. 21 was quite exhaus
Eckhardt said after he had refused to
make out his complaint in writing, he
• called on C. D. O'Brien, an attorney in
St. Paul, and Mr. O'Brien advised him
! not to give the captain the names of
I his witnesses, as it was hard enough
j for a private to prove anything against
the officers, no matter how good his
case might be. Eckhardt told his ad
visor he. did not like that kind of talk
I about his officers, and left the office.
I He next called upon Mr. McDonald,
I who arranged to meet him the next day
and draw up the proper papers in the
matter. The next morning, when he
j applied for another forty-eight-hour
pass, he told Sergeant Martlick that he
was going to consult with a lawyer.
Capt. Hannay got wind of it and order
[ ed him under arrest at once. Eokhardt
claims he was refused the priv
ilege of telephoning to his at
j torney, and was kept in the
j guard house without being able
to get word to Mr. McDonald from Dec.
22 until Jan. 3, when he managed to
send a telegram to Mr. McDonald.
Upon direct examination, Eckhardt
testified that he had never been arrest
ed before, and that Capt. Hannay was
a good captain to him until he refused
to testify against Caldwell; since then
things had changed, and Capt. Hannay
had showed feeling against him re
Judge Advocate Kennedy took the
witness after the court convened In the
afternoon, and went over every portion
of the testimony of the accused.
The court adjourned until 11 o'clock
Thursday, when Eckhardt's cross-ex
animation will be resumed.

PARK BOARD TAKES ACTION LOOK.
ING TO IMPROVING THE
LEXINGTON TO THE RIVER.
LONG DISCUSSION ABOIT PROPOSED
AGREEMENT WITH STREET
FOR EXTENDING COMO AYE. LINE.
President Wbeeloek Will Submit
the I'niiioMd Form of Agree
ment to the Company.
The park board, at its adjourned reg
ular meeting last night, devoted most
of the time to discussing the form of
an agreement to be entered into be
tween the board and the St. Paul City
Railway company, with reference to
granting the company the right of way
to run Its proposed extension of the
Como avenue line through Como park.
In the nature of the case no final ac
tion could be taken, as the proposed
agreement must be first submitted to
the street railway company and a
conference had before matters can take
definite shape. The agreement or reso
lutions granting the desired right of
way through Como park contains
numerous conditions. chief among
which are the following:
The company will be required to
build bridges over the park roadways,
as no grade crossings will be permit
ted; the company must maintain and
operate 187 arc lights-that is, 100 more
than are at present in use In the park
—and the company will also be re
quired to erect a suitable street rail
way station, to cost not less than $2,000
and to expend $2,500 for the grading
of Midway boulevard.
On motion of Commissioner Hamm
President Wheelock was authorized to
confer with the street railway com
pany and submit the proposed form of
agreement to its, officers. As soon as
the latter come to a conclusion re
garding the conditions they will ac
cept, they will be invited to submit
their proposition to the park board.
Commissioner Wheelock then brought
up the subject of Summit avenue bou
levard, which the park board desires
to have declared a parkway In order
that it may provide a suitable road
way, care for the- trees, etc.
Superintendent of Parks Nussbau
mer said that the trees were greatly
in need of proper care, and that, if the
present condition of things was al
lowed to continue, there would be no
trees left on the boulevard in five
The difficulty confronting the board
in this matter was, so Commissioner
TVheelock said, to be relieved, if the
boulevard was declared a highway,
from paying the assessments for locai
improvements, which are now paid by
abutting there-on. After some discus
sion, Commissioner Wheelock drafted
the following resolution, which was
Resolved, That Uio honorable the common
council is respectfully requested to declare
that portion of Summit avenue, between Lex
ington avenue and the Mississippi river, a
j parkway, and place the snme under the su
! pervision of the board of park com in is si in
ers, subject to the casement of the public
and of the owners of The private property
abutting thereon — but not in any way re
leasing tho said owners of private properly
from the obligation to pay the cost of Im
provements which the common council may
determine should be paid by assessment in
the usual way.
The superintendent of parks was in
structed to confer with the secretary
of the water board and request said
board to cause to be flooded Lake Iris
and the lake in Merrlam Park, so as to
make the same available for skating.
The resolution condemning a strip of
land 200 feet wide, extending from
Hamline to Snelling avenue, was for
mally adopted. The strip, when com
pleted as a parkway, will be known
ns Midway boulevard.
