KOVSK VBI PASS TUB BOX FOR THE OMAHA KXIIIIHT NOTES FIGHT MADE WAS FUTILE Some of the Member* Thonwbt th* Proposed Law Katukliihecl it lintl Preoedfut, bat It Scoured a >1n j...-ir> In Committee of the AVhole — — Pet«*r*on Hill to Kedncf Inter est Kate I^hm Fortunate. The house In committee of the whole. Mr. Laybourn (Rep.), of St. Louis, In tho chair, spent nearly two hours yesterday discussing the bill ap propriatlng $24,500 to reimburse the persons who put up that amount for the Minnesota exhibit at the Omaha ex position last year. After amendment, motions and substitutes galore had been made and voted down, the com mittee recommended the bill to pass. The bill, as introduced by Mr. Staples (Rep.), of Dakota, had been recom mended to pass by the committee on appropriations and an effort was made Thursday to suspend the rules and put the bill on its passage. This was op posed and the bill took its regular course. After it had been read Mr. Staples moved that it be recommended to pass. Mr. Lampe (Tnion). of Hennepin, mov ed for ind; finite postponement on the ground that the legislature two years ;i^<> had refused to make the appro priation and the passage of the meas ure would establish a precedent which would give rise to mucn trouble In the future. Mr. Staples' said the business men of the state had banded together and raised the money for an exhibit which had been >>f great Interest, and of bene fit to the state, arvd this in the face of the fact that he legislature had denied the appropriation. He had voted against the appropriation two years ago, but he was glad to say that he had broadened out h little since then and the state had made a record at the Omaha exposition. The question was whether the parties w 7 ho had sign ed notes and made the exhibit a suc cess were to be held personally re sponsible for the expenditure. He read a report of the prizes awarded to Min nesota at the exposition and stated that the dairy exhibit alone benefited J the state more than the amount of the appropriation asked for. lie knew of his own knowledge of persons who, by reasnn of the exhibit at Omaha, had been interested in the state, and two colontes would be located here from Nebraska. In view of the splendid work and benefits derived from the ex hibit he favored the appropriation. Mr. Abbott (Rep.), of Faribau'-t. in quired how many notes had been given and what counties had contributed. Mr. Staples read a long list of the counties and the amounts raised by each and contended that this showed that all parts of the state took an In terest in and took part in the exhibit. Mr. Plowman (Pop.), of Otter Tail, questioned if the appropriation was not voted down in the house at the last session on the ground that the state could not afford the expense. This, Mr. Staples said, was not correct. Mr. Gutterson (Rep.), of Blue Earth, offered an amendment to cut the appro priation in two and give $12,250. He was opposed to pledging the credit of the state in this way. The exhibit at Om«ha had been a benefit to the state, but he favored a chance to teach the j parties who pledged the .credit of the j state in this way a lesson. If the leg- j islature should be asked this year to I make an appropriation and it should J be voted down it would make no dlf- | ference and parties would do the same thing as they had in the Omaha ex position matter. He had been approach ed during the campaign and requested by parties who signed the notes In his district and asked not to oppose the appropriation. He had stated that he would not make any promises. The lesson, he thought, would be sufficient if the state paid half the amount and allowed the signers of the notes to pay the other half. Mr. Staples favored the state paying all or nothing. The plan suggested by Mr. Gutten-un was a milk and water stand. Either vote the bill up or down. Mr. Umland (Dem.V of Ramsey, thought the amounts raised were pret ty well divided among the counties. His idea was that the greater numbor of those who signed the not'^s did not ex pect to be reimbursed, but simply did BO for the benefit of the state. If they did not do It with this Idea then it was a mercenary one and they should not be paid. Mr. Marin (Pop.), of Pope, said all the men who signed the notes were fully aware of the action of the legis lature in denying the appropriation. He noticed in the report of the gentlemen who had charge of the exhibit that the secretary had drawn $150 per month and an additional $1,688 was given him. Ho thought some one had had a snap. The principle was all wrong and the appropriation should b? turned down. Mr. Roberts (Rep), of Hennepin, ,iald the affair showed that all the intelli gence of the state was not lodged in the legislature. The result showed the hindsight of the raembere of the legis lature and the foresight of the busi ness men who had taken charge of The exhibit. The amount, asked for to re imburse those who had made the ex hibit a success was a mere bagatelle. The legislature would be deluged with bills asking for appropriations, asking for things untried, while here was one v.hich had proved a benefit to the state. The business men had put up their nu ney for the benefit of the state and not for their own good, and it would be penny wise and pound foolish not to reimburse them. Mr. .Tacobson (Rep.), of Lac gui Parle, vas glad to see such a spirit of econo my on the floor. There would be a chance later In the session for the gen tlemen to show the same spirit. The question was should the state or 100 or 1,000 persons pay for the exhibit? The state was not in honor bound to pay. SE Has It Puzzled -zs rE You 3 5~ To Find 3 iE A Food ~s *£ Easy to g Digest ?

Grocers Bell. If the same method had been used in the Chicago deal, the appropriation would not have received a vote of a single member. A much better exhibit had been made at Omaha for $25,000 than had been made at the world's fair for $175,000, and more credit had been reflected on the state. The Chicago commissioners were appointed and the money spent w r ith littte if any result. REPRESENTATIVE LAYBQI'RX, DIXITH. In this case the result to the state was four times better, as the exhibit had been conducted on business principles. Tlitr benefit to the farmers was great, and, if. the exhibit had not been made Minnesota would not be In front as a butter making state. If he thought the bill was not a good business pro position he would not vote for it. The whole state had been benefited and should pay for it. Either pay the whole amount or nothing. Mr. West (Rep.), of Mower, explained that one reason why the appropriation did not pass two years ago was that the members feared it would ba another world's fair scheme. The Idea was that if the appropriation was made the gov ernor would appoint a commission and the members would ko on a junket or two, and that was all there would be to it. As It was the business men had token hold of the matter and it was a success. He favored ths bill. Mr. Plowman moved progress be re ported on the bill. Mr. Winston (Dem.), of Hennepin, wanted the bill made a special order for Thursday at 10:30. Mr. Foss (Rep.), of Grant, offered as a substitute for all previous motions that the committee report progrsss and place the bill on general orders. Mr. Winston said it was a question of principle and he would like to see a full attendance of members when the bill was acted upon. The motions and amendments were voted down in order and the bill rec ommended to pass. When the committee rose it reported on the following bills: RECOMMENDED FOR PASSAGE. H. F. 1 (Grass. Rep., of Murray) — To amend section 5518 of the General Statutes of 1594 relating to actions in courts. To pass. H. F. 14 (Dunn, Rep., of Ramsey)— To le galize and validate deeds and other instru ments executed without a seal, scroll or de vice opposite the name of the grantor, and the rocord thereof. To pass. H.

F. 72 (Staples, Rep., of Dakota)— To ap propriate money to defray the expenses of the Minnesota exhibit at the exposition held at Omaha, Neb., in 1898, etc. To pass. FIGHT ON PETERSON BILL. When the calendar was reached there was_a long discussion on H. F. 52, by Mr. "Peterson (Rep.), of Renville. The measure reduces the rate of interest on certificates of state lands from 5 to 4 per cent and extends the time for pay ment from thirty to fifty years. Mr. Bush (Rep.), of Olmsted, said af ter investigation he had found that the bill would, while it benefited many, cripple the permanent school fund to the extent of $50,000, and for this rea son he did not think !t should pass. Mr. Dwinnell (Re.p.), of Hennepin, made a long speech opposing the pas sage of the measure. It was one of the most important matters coming before i the house at the session and involved about $1,000,000 to the school fund of the state and the members should take care not to make a break in the school funds. The law of- 1866 provided that the principal derived from the sale of lands should never be used by the state, but only for the school districts. The investment board had at first been only allowed to invest in United States bonds and state bonds. In 1896 the law had been changed so as to allow loans from the fund to be made on county, school, municipal and town bonds. Since that time the Investment board had placed $1,250,000 in that character lof investments. There was now about $6,200,000 in outstanding contracts and the reduction of the rate of interest from 5 to 4 per cent would mean a loss of $62,000 to the school fund. If the proposition was a arood thing why did not the railroad cor»->anies reduce the rate on the came principle as advanced by those favoring the bill. Mr. Lynds (Rep.), of Carlton, stated that the result of his investigations had been that there was now out standing land contracts amounting to $6,280,000 in round figures. In the last six years the payments had been as fol lows: 1893, $169,606; 1894, $106,201; 1895, $142,178; 1896, $166,623; 1897, $137,930; 1898, $321,192. It was evident from this show ing that the payments were not made because the rate was too high. From a business standpoint the bill should not pass. No hardship was worked on the holders of the certificates at 5 per cent. If they wanted a loan they would have to pay at least 6 per cent. Mr. Roberts (Rep.), of Hennepin, wanted the bill referred back to the committee on public lands, of which he was chairman, so that it could be amended to provide for a 4 per cent rato on future certificates. Mr. Dwinnell objected, saying as the committee reported in favor of the passage of the bill it would probably come back in the same form. Mr. Jacobson put an end to the de bate by moving that the bill be made a special order for Tuesday morning at 10:80 o'clock, and this was agreed to. AIPPX/IBS TO H. & D. GRANT. H. P. 56, by Mr. Fosnes (Union), of Chlppewa, the other bill on the calen dar, was given Its third reading and passed by a vote of ninety ayes ana none in the negative. The bill la to THE ST. PAUL GLOCS-— SUN JAY— JANUARY 22, 1839. reach a contention which has arisen in the western part of the state grow ing out of the Hastings & Dakota land grant and the settlers. By mis representation the settlers have been induced to take leases of the land. The supreme court has held that action cannot be maintained to dispute the title, by a party who is in actual pos session and that the party must have been deprived of possession before he can commence action. The bill allows the rule of law to be changed so that action can be commenced to dispute the title without giving up possession. , COULDN'T TRUST THE SENATE. A bill passed by the senate on . Thursday, S. F. 92, by Mr. Wilson Rep), of Hennepin, reached the house and was read for the first time. Mr. Dwlnnell (Rep.), of Hennepin, moved the suspension of the rules and REPRESENTATIVE HEIMKRDINGEH, BROWN COUNTY. [ , '".■;-■■ ' ....... Representative H. Heimerdinger was born in Germany, in 1852, and came to America with his parents when only 2 years old. He settled in Minnesota (Brown county) in 1856. and was in New Ulm during the Indian out break, in 1862. He received a common school education and took a course in the St. Paul the passage of the bill. The measure, he said, provided for the official desig nation of amendments passed and known as General Statutes of 1894. This complication was simply a pri vate one, and there was some doubt and uncertainty as to the validity of the same. The senate Judiciary com mittee had reported favorably on the bill, and It had been passed under a suspension of the rules in that body. Mr. Jacobson (Rep.), of Lac gui Parle, advised that the house should first consider the bill. It had not been considered by the judiciary committee of the house, and he did not favor rushing bills simply because the senate had passed them. Mr. Umland (Dem.), of Ramsey moved the bill be referred to the ju diciary committee, and Mr. Dwinnell withdrew his motion. KILLED THE "ANTI-PASS" BILL. The committee on legislation re ported indefinite postponement on three bills. The most important one was H. F. 108, by Mr. Peterson (Rep.), of Renville. This provided that no state, county or city official should be Issued free transportation by any rail road or common carrier, and it not only made the issuance of a pass by any company punishable by a fine, but forfeited the office held by the user In addition to making him liable to a fine. When the report of the committee was read there was a general laugh, and the merriment increased when Mr. Jacobson (Rep.), of Lac gui Parle, said "the committee should have reported a substitute, compelling the railroad companies to give passes." TWO OTHERS CUT DOWN. H. F. 23, by Mr. Lydiard (Rep.),_of Prevent the Grip By Keeping Your Blood Pure With Hood's Sarsaparilla. The grip is moat likely to attack a weak and debilitated system. Those who keep their blood pure and systems toned up with Hood's Sarsaparilla are in little danger from thlß disease.

ONE IS '4 LAW. Gov. Lind notified the house that he had signed H. F. 60, by Mr. Mallette, relating to the salary of the Judge of the probate court in JStille Lacs county. CHANGES TAX METHODS. H. F.

The intention of the bill is to tax real estate securities as real instead of as personal property. The bill went to the committee on taxes and tax laws. NEW STATE BANKING LAW. A bill to regulate the business of private banking, H. F. No. 127, was introduced yesterday by Mr. Argetsing er (Rep.), of Blue Earth. The provi sions are "that in towns of 500 inhabi tants or less the cash capital of such concerns shall not be less than $5,000, and In towns of over 500 lnhabitans the capital is to be not less than $10,000. The entire capital is to be paid in cash before the bank commences busi ness, although the superintendent of banks may accept in lieu of not more than 75 per cent of such capital good as-sets of any solvent institution Here tofore doing business as a private bank, which proposes to continue in business under the provisions of the new law. The banking concerns under the act are required to have at all times an available fund of 20 per cent of all im mediate liabilities and whenever the available funds fall below the 20 per cent the bank shall not. make any new leans until the fund is restored. Bank ing without authority of the superin tendent of banks is punishable by a fine of $1,000 or imprisonment for one ytar, or both. Private banks are made subject to the same laws as regulate the state banks. The measure went to the committee on banks and bank ing. DOUBLES PRICE OF A LIFE.

Mr. Laybourn (Rep.), of St. Louis county, and chairman of the commit tee on taxes and tax laws, presided over the house yesterday while that body was in the committee of the whole. Mr. Laybourn Showed an aptitude for the work devolving £pon him which rather surprised not only the members of the delegation- from -siis own county, but the other members-of the house. It was during the discussfon of the bill to reimburse those who had advanced money for the exhibit at the Omaha ex position that Mr. Laybourn made such a hit. Motions for indefinite postpone ment, amendments to report progress, for special orders and the like, poured In at an alarming rate, but the gentle man from at. Louis was equal to the occasion and disposed "fit the business with rapidity and precision. • • * Some gossip has been caused by the holding up of the report of the senate committee on legislative expenses fa voring the appointment of a pair of Twin City newspaper men to be clerks of committees In the senate. W. W. Jermane, of the unsullied Evening Journal, of Minneapolis, not desiring to be contaminated by association with other newspaper men, was shrewd enough to slip through a resolution bearing his name only which was pairs- '. ed, he being vouched for by the c&Jlr*" man of the committee on railroads to which he was assigned. The other newspaper men, Fred Vaa Duzee, of the Pioneer Press, and W. E. Verity, of the Tribune, of Minneapolis, were given assignments by the party caucus, but the legislative expenses committee. Instead of passing the re quisitions for jobs promised by the caucus, proceeded to institute a little retrenchment and reform, and gave three of the men half a dozen clerk ships each. Verity's list Included the committee on llnance, of which Sena tor Knatvold is chairman. The Free born county orator had calculated on a soung man from his constituency being clerk of his committee, but the legislative expenses committee seems to have concluded that the chaplaincy was sthjlls enough for that district to corral. Senator Knatvold fought the resolu tion, as reported by the committee, and as a result, Van Duzee and Biorn were hung up along with Verity. Senator Daugherty, of Duluth, was also stir red up a bit when he found out what had been done, for one of the commtt tfces included in the report was one on which he had expected to land Milie Bunnell, a Duluth newspaper man. So the committee clerkships are still titd up. There is an estrangement between Representatives Jacobson arid Gutter son, which may turn out to be nvjre serious than it looks. It will be re membered that when the Blue Earth county man was a candidate for the si/eakership, one of the things that promised to stand in the way of his se curing the nomination was the suppos ed friendliness of Jacobson, one of the most prominent men in the Second dis tiict, for C. P. Staples, who was also a candidate, presumptively at least. Thomas Torson, who was in Gutter fion's party, had been entrusted as a leader of his campaign, but when it became necessary to make a truce with the man from Lac gui Parle, Torson tuok second place on Gutterson's cam paign committee and Jacobson became Gutterson's manager, nominally, at least. It soon became apparent, how ever, that the Dare people were getting things rounded up in pretty good shape, and when it came around to Gutter son's district the committee snoils had been pretty well cut up, and "the Sec or.d district did not get the slice that It had usually been provided with. The representative from Blue PJarth, it seems, has been doing gome tali think ing for a month or so, and when he saw the fat places that Staples and Jiicobson got on Dare's committees, he may have wondered whether or not he had been thrown down by his supposed friends. He rested quietly under the chafing arrogance of Jacobson, how ever, until Friday afternoon, when at the hearing of the committee on taxes and tax laws, Jacobson tried to ride over Gutterso'n's express company tax ation bill rough shod. Then Gutterson declared himself and plainly, too, so plainly, indeed, that Torson, who is something of a peacemaker and a be liever In harmony, even at the cost of fighting for it. was moved to suggest that the committee go into executive session before the breach became a public scandal.
