Her body was found yes morning, lying in bed, fully cl&d, while a revolver beside her and a bullet hole in her temple told I ory, confirmed in a brief note Which she left, Baying she had deter mined to end an unequal struggle in death. Just when the fatal shot was fired is not known, though it was probably af : Inigbt, as Mrs. Barber did not retire until 11 o'clock, and other in .'i ;he h;>use were about an hour later. No one heard the shot, and the was 11 iknown until several stu flents, concerned on account of Mrs. Barber's failure to appear at the u=ual hour yest rday morning, visited her loom and found htr dead lK>dy. Mrs. Barber's tragic death was a Shock to the studen.a at the school and who knew her. She never com plalned ot business troubles, nor in any way intimated that she contemplated B«4f-dcstruction. The summer school was not the success it might have been, but Mis. Barber was always cheerful, though at times her health was not of U» beet Recently there were but few students attending the school, and with tbtse Mrs. Barber was about the housf £ttceSay evening, apparently in one of he'- most cheerful moods.

Two years ago she remov ed to this city to accept the position of superintendent of the local schrol of fine arts. During the last two summ?rs inducted the school at Mendota upon her own responsibility, and the limited patronage the school received is believed to have had much to do with her despondency. A? an artist and Instructress she pos sessed much ability and was highly re garded alike by pupils and the school l '.rd of managers, as well as by a lartre circle of friends, all of whom were loath to believe her sad end.

Aside from the need fcr proprietary stamps, the most pressing need has been for documentary stamps of large denominations — 50 cents and $1 partic ularly. There has been a considerable demand for these, and none received up to yesterday. The stock received Is not large, but It is sufficient. Chief Deputy Vars said that the sup ply received was not sufficient to fill all the orders on hand, but that they would probably be made to cover all needs by apportioning them among the purchasers and made to last until fre3h stocks had been sent out by the de partment. Mr. Vars could not guess at the probable increase in revenue in this district under the new law, for there has been no time yet for making up reports. He said, however, that the increase would be tremendous. WORK TEST FOR TRAMPS DAKOTA COUNTY HAS TRIED IT WITH SUCCESS Secretary Jackuon, Who Has Of ficially Visited HiinUuk-v. Tells Whin They Need in the Way of Pliices of Detention Ho Thinks Some Counties Would Profit by Adopting the District System. Secretary Jackson paid a visit to the local places of detention at Hastings, yesterday, and reports that, although the Dakota county people have just completed a very commodious poor house, they have not yet secured per fection in their county institutions. Most of all, the county needs a new jail, in place of the one now being used, although Mr. Jackson thinks it would be much more advisable for counties to adopt the district system of boarding prisoners in adjoining (•..unties, and would recommend this for Dakota county, a« Goodhue county has a fine county jail. However, the Hastings people feel a certain amount of local pride in their county institu tions, and will probably build a new jail this summer. The Hastings lock-up is wholly in adequate for the size of the town. Like the county jail, it is all in one room, and the inmates have no classi fication. If two men were implicated in a crime and locked up. they would ht.ve ample time to "fix up" a story. Capable men are in charge of both institutions, but justice could not be done by the jailers with such poor fa cilities. Mr. Jackson further says that Da kota county has just adopted the \vork test as a solution of the tramp problem, which has become quite aggravated this summer. The plan has thus far been very effective in keeping tramps out of town, and Secretary Jackson recommends all towns troubled with the tramp problem to give the plan a trial. Mr. Jackson says Minnesota is mak ing satisfactory advances towards per fecting the present jail system. In many cases where counties have built new jails, a little gurden square has been planted around the jail, and the institution is pointed out to visitors wjt.h considerable local pride as a place of interest. Mr. Jackson also says many. of the farming counties of the state do not furnish enough offenders to support an expensive county jail, and he thinks, as a solution to the problem, the district jail system should be adopted, at a considerable decrease in expense to tLe county. Several counties have tried this and found it satisfactory, and some legislation looking towards the intro duction of this system may be pro posed to the next legislature. STATISTICS FOR MR. MORRIS. CommtKßioner Powers Compiles^ Some Seventh District Statistic*. In compliance with a rtquest from Con gressman Page Morris, Labor Commissioner Powers has compiled a table of the number of people employed in factories and mines in the Seventh congressional district, as com pared with the year 1897. Out of a total r.f 229 shops and mines investigated in 1837, 8,623 mm and children were employed, as against 10.171 in 1898, a net gain of 1.642, or 19y> per cent for the year. The largest gains" are shown in the mining towns in St. Lcuis county, where there has been quite an awak ening of the mining industry. Of the total number employed in 1897 297 were women and 310 in 1898. The most sig nificant fact chronicled in Mr. Powers' table Is the decrease in the number of minors em ployed since last year. Forty-two were em ployed in 1897, and twenty-seven are at pres ent engaged in earning their own living at manual labor. Only one girl was found to be under age, and she was reported at Du !uth.

THE ST. PAUL GLOBE— THURSDAY JULY 14, 1893. CLEARED UP THE CALENDAR SUPREME COURT FINISHES THE APRIL TERM BUSINESS It "Will, However, Take Several Week* to Write All the Opinions on Hand— One of the Most Im portant Terms In the History of the State — — A. 11. Nann Cannot Practice In Minnesota. The Minnesota supreme court yester day wound up the business of the April term, and adjourned for the summer. The day was consumed in hearing arguments In the cases of the Minne apolis Trust company as receiver for the Nqrthwestern Guaranty Loan & Trust company vs. L. F. Manage and others, and in the case of L. A. Sprague vs. D. E. Sprague. The April term of the supreme court will go down as one of the most im portant in the history of the state's highest tribunal. There still remain nearly forty oases which have been granted hearing's, but on which opin ions have not been filed. It will re quire several weeks for the Judges to complete the unfinished work, before going on their summer vocations. Among the cases still to be decided are the suits of Ed. W. Bazille and John Wagener, Ramsey county officials, who are seeking to secure payment ot their salaries according to the statu tory provisions. Several state cases of a sweeping nature have been decided in favor of the commonwealth. The famous Anderpon case, for which the northern counties made such a hard fight, was decided in favor of the state and caused much rejoicing in the pine counties. It not only increases the revenue derived annually from the tax levy several hund'ed thousand dol lars, but it materially decreased the rate of taxation in Carlton, Pine, Ait kin, Crow Wing, Kana.bec counties, relieving the people of those counties from the greatest burden of taxation, as millions of acres or unused land is owned in these counties by the rail road companies. Perhaps the next in Importance of the cases on the April calendar was the Security Savings and Loan Asso ciation, of Minneapolis, against J. A. Sjoberg, which laid down a broad con stitutional doctrine in interpreting the fundamental text of the constitution by the courts of the state. Three decisions were handed down yesterday written by Judge Mitchell. In the case of the application of the Minnesota Bar association for the dis barment of A. H. Nunn, of Minneapolis, the application is granted by the court. Nunn was tried in the district court of Hennepin county last fall on a crim inal charge. He was accused of alter ing the records in the vault of the clerk of the courts' office In Minneapo lis. It was alleged that he made thir ty-eight erasures on the assessment rolls, thereby making invalid certain tax judgments against property In which h§ was interested as the attor ney for the owners. The evidence was not deemed sufficient to convict him and he was subsequently released. Th*> State Bar association lh: n made an ap plication to the supreme court, asking that he be disbarred, en account of un professional conduct. The history of the case in the district court and the testimony submitted in evidence were reviewed by the supreme court with the above result. The following are the syllabi: In re information against A. H. -Nunn, as Attorney at Law. Syllabus— ln proceedings to disbar the re spemdent for misconduct in his profession as an attorney and counselor at law, by chang ing and altering public records in the office of thp clerk of the district court. Held, that the evidence proves that the re spondent is guilty of the misconduct charg ed. Ordered, that he be removed from trie office of attorney and counselor at law of the courts of this state. &nd that he be dis barred from practicing therein. •Tohanna Welberg, respondent, vs. Minne sota Scandinavian Relief Association, ap pellant. Syllabus— The articles of as-ociation of a mutual benefit life insurance company pro vided that applicants for membership must be not more than 65 years old, but its by laws limited membership to persons not more than 55 years old. An applicant for member ship, who was in fact 57 years old, repre sented that he was only 50 years of age, and relying on this representation the as sociation admitted him to membership. Con ceding without deciding that the by-law was valid, Held, that the admission of a memb3i not over 65 years of age being authorized by the articles of association, it was com petent for the company to waive the pro vision of the by-law limiting the age to 55 years. Also, that the acceptance and retention of an assessment ag*inst the member, with full knowledge of his misrepresentation as to his age, amounted to such a waiver. Order af firmed. — Mitchell, J. Moritz Mlkolas, appellant, vs. Hiram Walker & Sons, limited, respondents. Syllabus — On a motion to set aside an at tempted service upon a foreign corporation by serving the summons on its "agei^t." Hold, that the evidence justified the court in finding that the person upon whom the service was made was not in fact the de fendants' agent. To constitute a person an agent of a for fign corporation upon whom service of the summ ns may be m -de, he must be o:.e actual ly appointed by and representing the corpora tion, and not one created by mere construc tion or implication, contrary to the inten tion of the parties. Order affirmed. —Mitchell, J. PIECE OP LEGAL FICTION. Walter Darklns, Who Isn't in Jail, Sues to Get Out of Jail. There is a legal fiction to the effect that Walter Darkins of Rose Town is now occupy ing a cell at the county Jail, serving a sen tence of ten days, imposed by Justice lluit, "of the town mentioned. Though Mr. Darkins' residence in the county jail is purely fictional, one of those things which the law says exists because it ought to be, the fictional pysoner doesn't like his quarters, and he yesterday instituted habeas corpus proceedings to dis )3i^ate the fiction. The petition for habeas corpus recites that Mr. Darkins was arrested under the name of John Doe and brought before Justice Hunt and there charged with having assault*! one Jordan; that he was found guilty of the crime, and ordered committed to the Ramsey county jail for the full period of ten day 3. The commitment was made out July 11. It is also stated that Mr. Darkins was cummitted on a defective complaint, and demands that the district court give him his liberty. The writ is returnable this morning at 10 o'clock before Judge Bunn. Up to last night Mr. Darkins had not put in an appearance at the county jail, and if he doesn't give himself up in court this morning the sheriff will be put to it to com ply with the mandate issued yesterday re quiring him to produce the bedy of Mr Dar kins. FOR TIMBER TRESPASS. United States Secures a Verdict Against Pennlngrton & Co. The jury in the caße of Pennlngton & Co. prosecuted in the United States court for timber trespass, brought in a verdict of $1 634 against the lumbermen. The sum is the amount at which the timber taken was valued by the Jury. The case of the United States against the St. Paul Timber and Supply company for trespassing on federal lands and the removal of timber is still on before -Judge Amido-i and a Jury in the federal court. Orders in Insolvency Cases. In the matter of the insolvency of P. W Paber, Judge Brill yesterday ordered a par tition of the assets of the bankrupt among the. creditors. Schedules of assets and liabilities have been filed in the insolvency of Swift, Lewis & Co. The liabilities are stated at $12,082 and actual assets $6,708. The nominal assets were Just twice aa much, but were scaled down 50 per cent. • Judge Bunn allowed the assignee fees amounting to $50 and attorney's fees to the extent of $106 in the assignment of Bork & Co. Puzzled What to Do With Her. Mrs. Lena Miller, an old and friendless woman, was taken before the probate court yesterday and examined as to her sanity. She has had a great deal of trouble— has been divorced and has run the gauntlet of local charitable institutions. Propositions to send her to the city hos pital, the almahouse and other institutions were given up, having been tried bafore; still she wae not sufficiently unbalanced to war rant her commitment to Rochester. Her daughter, likewise a divorced woman and de pendent on her -own efforts for a living, said that she could not take care of her mother, and Judge Willrich was in a quandary. He continued the case until thia morning for further Investigation. TO EQUALIZE TAXES Board Will. Begin Its Work on Monday Next. On Monday next the board of equali zation will begin its labors on the tax list. The board this year will consist of Messrs. Quehl, Hardlck and Moritz from the board of county commission ers; Messrs. Donahower and Kenny, fiom the board of aldermen; Messrs. Warner and Benson, from the assem bly; County Auditor Sullivan, Assessor Seng and Mayor Kiefer, the latter pre siding. The board is required to sit every working day for four weeks, relther more nor less, and the mem bers draw a per diem of $3. Last year the board did not finish its work in the required time, and sat one day longer. On that day the assessments on busi ness houses were raised, and the change was set aside by the courts. The province of the board is to equal ize the taxes only. It cannot raise or lower the total amount, but it may make changes here and there, raising some and lowering others. The result must be identical with the total sub mitted. WILL EXPLAIN THEM. Seventh Ward Garbage Contractor Will Meet the Committee Today.

PAUL MEN WILL GO TO WHITE BEAB A Disagreement Over the Question of Receipts Will Keep the Local and Minneapolis Organization* Apart on Labor Day — St. Paul Men Want Commercial Bodies to Assist There Will Be a Parade. There will be no Joint Twin City labor day celebration at the elate fair this year. Local labor organizations will observe the day with an outing at Lake Shore, White Bear lake, while the plans for the Minneapolis celebration, are said to be unsettled. Last year the labor organizations joined in making the opening day of the fair a success by holding the labor day exercises at Hamline. This ar rangement was made impossible this year through a disagreement among the Minneapolis organizations arising out of a dispute as to the disposition of the receipts among their organiza tions. With this state of affairs ex tant the local labor day committee met last evening and decided to hold an independent celebration at White Boar. The advisability of having the usual parade in the morning was a subjec: of much discussion, which, however, ter minated in the decision to arrange for tho parade as in former years. All la bor organizations will turn out, and besides being requested to close their places of business throughout the day all merchants will be requested to make a representation in the parade by means of floats. In this connection communications w^re ordered sent to the Commercial club and Jobbers' union, esking the co-operation of thtse bodies in effecting a genei al obsarvance of the o'ay. The -parade will take place in the morning, immediately after which an adequate train service from the union depot will convey the crowds to th-j lake. There will be athletic games, rowing, fishing, a base ball game and dancing for the enjoyment of the pleasure seekers. Late trains will be run in the evening. The labor day committee elected E. B. Lott treasurer. The committee will meet next Wednesday evening to com plete its arrangements. CYCLE CLUB LAWN FETE. Capital City Grounds to Be Illum inated Tiiiiljt'lit.
