YeHt«T«!t»y Some Chance* In the
Hereafter there will be no doubt as
to the rules governing school board
quarantines. The board of school In
spectors took decisive action at its
meeting yesterday afternoon. There
have been some serious complications
arising in the past.
For example, on the report of a case
of diphtheria, or other contagious or
infectious disease, it has been the cus
tom of the school board to quarantine
Dot only the other children in the same
family, but, if the case was in a double
house or possibly a tenement row, to
l>ut the ban on the other children in
the building. This seemed frequently
un injustice to some of the other chil
dren, and the services of Ihe board of
liealth were required to grant a clean
bill of health to the little foiks who
were not really exposed to the dis-
Stil] another complication arose from
th.> fact thai, in the endeavor to do all
justice, children from families which
might "i- might not have been exi<"-, J
were admitted to the schorls upon the
certificate of the family physician that
they were free from contagion. In oth
the family physician would
make the usual formal report of diph
theria, and a subsequent "culture" by
the health department bacteriologist
I show that the malady was not
diphtheria. The result of all this has
been thai the school authorities have
lep nding recently on the city
board .1 health entirely. Every day
that department reports to the school
name and address of every
case 1 : contagious or infectious dis
rted during the day. The
principals of the schools interested are
notified, ami the result is that
usually, before the lapse of one school
day, frequently earlier, the principal
and teachers art- fully informed as to
cistence of the danger. This sys
t' m was given the Indorsement of the
board, which will hereafter be gov
ern.'! entirely by the action of the city
department, the eeitificate of an
outside physician being ignored.
Aside from this, the chief interest of
the session centered in Inspector A. R.
McGill'a informal announcement of his
intention to resign from the board be
fore the next meeting.
Mr. McGill expressed pleasure at the
social relations which had existed be
tween himself and the other members
of the board during his service, thank
ed them for their uniform kindness and
declared that the schools were second
to none, he believed, in America, con
sidering the disadvantages under
whi' li they were laboring. He wished
his associates all prosperity as mem
bers of the board, and trusted that the
administration might be continued
■with fewer obstacles in the future.
President Zimmermann, personally
and for the board, expressed regret at
Mr. McGill's departure, and expressed
the hope that the new appointee would

Tin- unusual amount of diphtheria in the
city has led the teachers to exercise g'.eat
care. The disease first appeared, and in its
worst form, in the Lafayette school district,
but the diligence and vigilance of the prin
cipal, Miss Oummhig-s, assis.ing the work of
the health department of the city, soon
checked its spread. The extraordinary at
tention given to quarantine in the Madiron
school district by Principal Bond also re
sulted most favorably. There have been
quite a number of canes on Arlington hills,
but, aside from these, it can scarcely ba
said that the disease has been epidemic.
The relations between principals and teach
ers and between them and the citizens who
send children to school are unusually cordial
and well understood. The high schaols are
being brought into systematic and harmuni'U^
relations by means of meetings of all high
school teachers, and a perfect und rs.andlng
between the several bodies ot teachers con
ducting these schools is assured.
The members of the hoard concluded
that the best course for the board to
take was to accept the certificate of
the city health department as final and
to insist upon a rigid quarantine
against sources of possible infection,
subject to certificates of health from
the city officers to raise the ban.

Manager Feldhauser has decided to
make the balance of the series of Li

be placed on sale tomorrow morning- at
9 o'clock 235 gallery seats at 42.50 for
the entire series of six concerts still re

cents a ticket. The balance of the

or about 80 cents a concert. The con
tracta for Rosenthal and Savor pro
vide that the cheapest ticket in the
h'.uso must not be sold for less than
$1, and that the best seats in the house
for not less than $2. But as both art
ists appear in the library course, and
the limit of price is made only for sin

to give the public this grand oppor

Like a huge battering ram a derail
ed St. Paul & Duluth freight car
crashed into the piers of the Sixth
street bridge at 10:30 o'clock yesterday
morning, carrying away two spans^ of
the heavy structure and hurling 200
tons of iron and steel on top of the
freight train passing beneath.
Jacob Cohen, living at 246 Charles
street, was carried down with the
wreckage, and buried under twisted
S'irders, while a number of other per
sons on the bridge narrowly escaped v
like fate. All of the train crew es-

caped without injury, though two of
the cars directly under the bridge were
crushed to splinters. Cohen was taken
from the debris unconscious, and ap
parently fatally hurt, but at the city
hospital, whither he was removed, it
was said last evening that his only ap
parent injuries were a severe concus
sion of the brain and a fracture or
the right forearm. The physicians say
Cohen will recover. His escape with
no more serious injuries is considered
DOWN WITH A CRASH.
The bridge went down with a terrible
crash. Dust, snow and pieces of tim
ber filled the air. As the bridge rock
ed to and fro for a moment before the
final plunge the grinding of girders
and snapping of bolts could be heard
blocks away. When the steel mass
toppled to the tracks, forty feet below,
demolishing the two cars, the noise
was like a small earthquake, and peo
ple flocked to the scene from all di
rections. Several witnesses nearest the
bridge when it went down declared
half a dozen people were on the part
carried away, and search was at once
made for any unfortunates that might
have been buried in the wreckage.
Cohen was the only one found. His
body lay close beside a hand car on
one of the Duluth main tracks, nearest
the west end of the demolished part
of the bridge. Twisted and gnarled all
about him were the heavy steel spam;
and girders, but while he was uncon
scious, none of the heavier parts of
the wreckage rested on his body. Tain- ;
men attracted from about the yards
and others quickly went to Cohen's res
cue and by careful operations got the
injured man out of further danger. He
was carried to a shanty near by, where
Dr. Ohage administered all possible re-
Hef. In the meantime the Margaret
street patrol wagon had been sum
moned and was soon on the way to the
city hospital with the unconscious man.
Cohen had apparently been walking
westward on the right hand side of
the bridge, having been, probably,
twenty-five feet out on the part that
SEVERAL, NARROW ESCAPES.
Several other pedestrians and at least
three teams narrowly escaped being;
carried down with the bridge. John
Smith, living at 702 Lawson street, was
standing on the bridge looking over
the railing at the cars when the piers
were knocked out. He felt the bridge
tremble under him and was almost
paralyzed with fright for a moment.
Then the heavy structure rocked over
to o;:<? side, and Smith started on the
fastest sprint of his life toward the
west end. He had barely jumped across
the point where the spans parted when
the demolished part fell with a crash.
Dr. Justin Ohage was driving over the
bridge toward Dayton's bluff and had
scarcely gotten on the eastern part of
the bridge left standing when the
ether spans went down. Two farmers
v ith teams were coming in the direc
tion of the city on the bridge when
the abyss opened a short distance
ahead of them. They lost no time in
pulling up their horses, turning about
and getting back on terra firma at the
east end. Another farmer, who must
have still been on the wrecked part of
the bridge when the crash came, whip
ped up his team and galloped ahead at
breackneck speed, having scarcely got
t< n onto the eastern part that was
left standing when the roadway behind
him disappeared. The farmer kept his
team on the run several blocks beyond

switch pin. The train, in charge of
Engineer Henry Young, Fireman
George Parker, Conductor George

man and Thomas Duffy, was switched
from the main track a short distance
north of the Seventh street tunnel to

rest of the train ran on down the par

that struck the bridge, was partly on
one track and partly on the other. The
couplings held, and this car was drag
ged and bumped along, making a reg
ular scythe for everything between the
two tracks. The bridge piers stood di
rectly in its path. The piers were steel
uprights on stone foundations. When
the car struck the supports they snap

evening. During the blockade the Du

Omaha tracks to East Seventh street,
where they switched to the Duluth
The sixth and seventh spans of the
bridge from the east end were the ones
th.it went down. ■ Together they were
185 feet long and estimated to weigh
nearly 200 tons. Just under where the
bridge broke off at the east end are
a number of huts and cabins occupied
by Phalen creek dwellers, many of
which must have been demolished had
the break extended further eastward.
The loss to the railroad on the cars is
estimated at $2,000.
The bridge was built by the city at
a cost of $148,100, and completed in
1891. It is a trestle structure with
spans varying from forty to ninety
two feet. The length of the bridge was
1,168 feet with a roadway of forty feet
and two ten-foot sidewalks. '
City Engineer Rundlett, asked as to
the accident, stated that it was due
to one of the freight cars crashing into
one of the bents, which supported the
structure, almost broadside. The for
ward trucks of one of the cars remain
ed on the main track, while the rear
trucks, owing to a defective switch
connection, went on a side track. The
result was that the car struck the bent
and knocked it out.
"SUCH ACCIDENTS SELDOM OC
'•The plans of the bridge," said Mr.
Rundlett, "were accepted by the rail
road companies and the bents or sup
ports of the bridge were located be
tween the tracks with the approval of
the companies. The chance of acci
dent such as occurred today are so
small that it would not pay to con
struct the bridge with stone abutments
for supports, and besides there is not
room enough with so many tracks to
build that kind of a structure, to say
nothing about the increased expense.
"Two spans of the bridge were
knocked out a total length of about ITO
feet. Originally the bent which was
struck by the car was not between the
tracks, but since the bridge was com
pleted a switch track was put in by
the Duluth road on the east side oi
'There is no question but that the
Duluth company will have to stand the
expense of putting the bridge in gool
condition. From a >ough estimate 1
think about $12,000 will replace the bent
and two spans. The distance from the
floor of the bridge to the ground is
about forty-two feet, and for this rea
son, in my opinion, it wilf not be worth
while to put up a temporary structure.
"Working plans of the structure are
now ready and if the company can se
cure the iron the bridge ought to be
repaired and ready for travel again in
ninety days. Of course, the dispatch
with which the iron can be secured by
the company U»pends on the length of
time the bridge will be closed."
Corporation Attorney Markham said
there was no question as to the liabil
ity of the Duluth road to place the
bridge in good condition. The struc
ture, he said, had been built by the
city on plans accepted by the rail
road company and the city had per
mission from the companies, including
the Duluth road, to place the piers and
bents between tHe t^cks.

Executive Agent Fullerton has taken
the matter of the killing of game by
Indians off the reservation out of sea
son up with the officials of the Interior
department, and will, he thinks, be
backed in his efforts to secure an en
forcement of the law by Senators Davis
and Nelson and the congressional dele
gation from this state, to whom ha
communicated a short history of the
trouble with the Indians in the north
ern part of the state. He yesterday
wrote W. A. Jones, United States com
missioner of Indian affairs, at V/ash
ington, calling his attention to the il-
legal practice of "squaw men" in pur
chasing game from Indians out of sea
son. The Indians leave the reservation,
Kill the game, dispose of it to the half
breeds and "squaw men. Deputy Game
Warden Stephens' encounter with the
Indians early in the week prompted the
communication to tha Indian commis
sioner, which is as follows:
Complications have arisen again this year
in regard to the Indians, of which fact 1
think you should be apprised. Every year
after the dear season closes and it is unlawful
to kill game in Minnesota, the traders—who I
understand are licensed by the government
hire Indians to go out and kill our deer,
paying them so much per pound. The Indians
realize little or nothing out of the trans
action, as the traders always get the lion's
The venison thus illegally procured is stored
on the reservations and shipped out of the
state when it can conveniently be done. Most
of those traders are men of inferior social
standing, but still they have government
licenses to trade with the Indians. They are
a curse to the Indian, and I bellevo with the
aid of the "squaw men" they are responsible
for a great deal of the trouble existing be
tween the Indians and white men.
We therefore appeal to you as commis
sioner, to issu,? instiuctiong to your agents
on the different reservations to restrain tha
Indians from leaving the reservations and not
permit them to roam at large and slaughter
our game. If some restraining power is not
placed upon them there is likely to be troub>,
for we are not going to allow the Indians to
violate our game laws, even if some of thorn
have to be killed to accomplish this result.
If the game killed by them was for thc-.ir
own use, the game and fish commission of
Minnesota could overlook a great dsal, but
when in reality it is for the benefit of the
class of men I have above referred to, we
think it is time for you and your deDarrmenr
to interfere. We have just had an encounter
with fourteen Indians from Pine Point, and
while there was no bloodshed, it might have
been otherwise and another Indian outbreak
Now, Mr. Jones, we have laid this matter,
with its possible serious results, plainly be
fore you, and we hope we are not making
this appeal to you in vain. We believe your
department should take the matter of restrain
ing the Indians from violating our game laws
under serious advisement. If the Indians are
amenable to our laws —game laws included—
they should be compelled to respect them. If,
on the other hand, they are not obliged to
obey our laws, then we fail to appreciate the
policy of the government in thua affording
them places of shelter to which they may re
tire in order to avoid possible punishment for
These am the facts In the case, which \v«
consider of sufficient Importance to call for
immediate attention from your department.
We are fully determined to protect our game
at whatever cost, from wanton destruction
by poaching Indians, who are aided and
abetted in this illegal traffic by unscrupulous

these licensed traders and kill deer in

I do not regard an Indian any more

going to put a stop, if possible, to this

were 2,000 deer killed in Minnesota this
year, and usually there are three times
that many. Venison has advanced 4

DruK-H Findings fur IMuiutltV
Ordered by tlie Court.
One year of married life was enough
to convince Mrs. Antonetta Winter
that the joys of matrimony have been
greatly over-rated and the tale of her
experiences proved sufficient yester
day for Judge Lewis to grant the de
cree restoring her maiden name of
Antonetta Lange and severing the
bonds that had bound her to John A.
Winter. Mrs. Winter is a blonde of
Junoesque proportions and chic from
the aigrettes on her Parisian bonnet to
the tips of her patent leather b!
while her husband, according to report,
would figure in the lightweight class.
The inequality of avoidupois, however,
Mrs. Winter told the court, had been
more than counterbalanced by the ex
ceedingly active disposition of her hus
band, who had on sundry occasions
worked off his surplus energy b.v
pounding her with a dexterity born
of much practice, and in 0,: 0 instance
by endeavoring to chew portions of her
anatomy. Mr. Winter interposed no
defense to the suit.
Mrs. Winter told the court that she
had been married to the defendant in
December, 1897, at St. Paul, and the
couple had moved into apartments at
21 East Fifth street. Then during an
eventful year it had dawned on her
that her husband was a habitual
drunkard. Frequently he needed
money for the purchase of liquor he
would resent refusals forcibly. On one
occasion, early in the summer, she had
been assaulted and pounded in the face
and neck, causing her great mental an<3
physical discomfort. But the climax
came on July 21 when, in the midst of
a melee caused by a shut-off of drinu
ing supplies, the plaintiff declared
Winter had succeeded in getting her
little finger in his mouth and had then
and there severely bitten and lacerated
the member. He had also been addict
ed to the opium habit, previous to the
marriage had been confined in an
asylum and since thje. marriage had
served two terms at the work house.
"He is crazy all the time." said the
plaintiff. "He is crazy when he ha»
drink and crazy when he wants it."
Christine Lange, a sister of the plain
tiff, corroborated the story of the as
saults and showed a particular vehem
ence in her statements.
"He is no good at all," she said in
Jacob It. Steinert had been a wit
ness of one assault, and told the court
how he had had a hand in the affray
at long range. It appeared that tii«
apartment occupied by the Winters la
directly across the alley from Btein
ert'a office in the Washburn building,
and that upon one occasion in the sum
mer when the windows were opened,
Steinert had his attention attracted by
a rumpus in the room across the alii y
Peering over he saw the Winters in
dulging in a rough and tumble, with
the husband indulging in choking i ■• -
tics. Mr. Steinert became interest ■<! at
once and the spirit of "Honest" John
Kelly arose within him when !),■ no
ticed the attempt at a foul. Gl ally all
bets should be declared off.
"Break away," called Mr. Steinert.
"if you don't quit I will throw a brics
In response to this admonition th«
witness declared that Winter had comt»
to the window and with gestures morft
suggestive than refined had threat
to come up to the office and "do" him.
"Did you see anything more after
that?" inquired Attorney Harvey Hall,
who appeared for Mrs. Winter.
"I saw nothing more but the noise,"
responded the witness.
Judge Brill, at the conclusion of the
testimony, ordered findings drawn up
for the plaintiff.
