Follows as a Sequel to the Dlsap
penriinee of Ruzek's Money.
The money that disappeared from tha
deathbed of Mrs. Anna Buzek ls made
the basis for a charge of conspiracy
made In a complaint tiled yesterday in
district court by Isabella W. Colburn,
who holds a mortgage on the Buzek
homestead. The court Is asked to have
Albert Buzek and Jacob Schmidt brought
Into court to explain what has become of
the money which was collected as In
surance on the house that was burned.
According to the complaint Albert Bu
st k. in IS9I. gave to the plaintiff a prom
issory note for $500, secured by a mort
gage on his property. Afterwards .he
Insured the house for $1,000 and the
household furniture for $500, but neg
lected to have added to the policy the
usual mortgage clause. Then the house
was burned "through the neglect of the
defendant,'" and Buzek collected $1,422.30
as insurance. It ls furthermore alleged
that since the Are Buzek and Mary
"Wagoner, his daughter, have caused to
be removed the doors, window sashes
and lumber from the burned house, and
have besides neglected to pay the taxes
and assessments against the property as
provided in the mortgage until now $150
ls due.
The plaintiff further alleges that Buzek
and his daughter have concealed the in
surance money and pretend they have

V Verdict Which No Homely Man
< ii-ii ld Have Gotten.
That a pretty woman as a plaintiff can
exert an appreciable effect on a jury was
emphasized yesterday when Judge Kelly
in district court filed an order In the
case of Mrs. Anna Trow against the vil
lage of White Bear, directing a retrial
unless the plaintiff, within twenty days,
files a stipulation agreeing to take $SOO
in lieu of the $1,100 which was awarded
by the jury. Mrs. Trow, who ls pos
sessed of exceptional personal attrac
tions, sued the village to recdver for a
sprained ankle sustained through step
ping through a bad place in a sidewalk
at White Bear.
In a memorandum accompanying the
order the court says: "The case was
clearly one for the jury. No errors in
law are claimed. The Jury awarded
plaintiff $1,400 as compensation for her
injuries. That is claimed to be and it Is.
in my opinion, so excessive that it should
not stand. While the injury was un
doubtedly painful the recovery was
rapid and seemed perfect. One who saw
plaintiff in the court room and was not
otherwise advised of the fact could not
tell from her movements that she had
suffered any injury to the ankle or foot.
I am quite sure had the plaintiff been a
homely man the amount awarded would
not have been so large by half."
Archibald McArthur and D. T. Wel
lington Have a Row.
Archibald McArthur and D. T. Welling
ton, the former a police court lawyer and
the latter a truancy agent, publicly
argued a matter of difference between
them in the corridor of the court house
11l feeling has arisen between the two
men, through remarks alleged to have
been made by Wellington regarding Me-
Arthur's motives in securing the arrest
of a girl on the charge of incorrigibility.
The two met face to face yesterday.
McArthur questioned Wellington in re
gard to the remarks alleged to have been
made and received an unsatisfactory ans
wer, whereupon he grew offensive and
made unpleasant remarks concerning
Wellington's veracity. Wellington being
somewhat ruffled by^the tirade, advanced
towards his opponent, who at once land
ed with his right.
Wellington suddenly lost his balance,
but recovered himself quickly, however,
and there were a few more exchanges of
compliments before Officer Schoen inter
Neither party was injured, but as both
are men with a sprinkling of grey ln their
hair, the exhibition is not regarded with
pride by their friends.
Wellington insists that McArthur was
the aggressor and that he was merely try
ing to induce him to listen to reason.

West Side Opera House Seldom Con

The Cathedral Parishioners Were
Out In Force at Cretin Hall
Celebrutions In Other Purlshes.
The benefit entertainment for St.
Michael's church, given at the West Side
opera house last night, was patronized
by an audience that more than filled
every seat in the house, and a splendidly
planned and splendidly executed pro
gramme was in every respect worthy of
the audience. There were sixteen num
bers, and several of them were equal to
any amateur performance ever given in
the city.
The entertainment opened with a pleas
ing selection by the j.lorgan orchestra,
and was followed by a clever character
sketch by Claude Jackson and Charlie
Miller. They sang "now I Love My Love"
so acceptably that the audience insh-ted
on another and got "I'll Have to Tele
graph My Baby." Then they were In for
it and only allowed to _o when th3y had
sung a third song, "Why Don't You Get
a Lady of Your Own?"
An instrumental trio, "Songs From
Home," by Miss Evangeline Moosbrug
ger, pianist, and Al Camerand and Al
Moosbrugger, violinists, was very well re
Ed J. Darragh was introduced by
Father O'Neil, and delivered an eloquent
address, paying a glowing tribute to Ire
land and the Irish people.
Mr. M. J. Carr sang "A Widow's Plea
for Her Son," and received a merited en
The next number was a distinct hit and
by all odds the strongest number of the
evening. It was a song and dance rpe
cialty by Emma and Golde Gillette, who
sang and danced in a most captivating
manner. Both of these little girls are
graceful and pretty, and their song, en
titled "I Am the Warmest Member ln
the Land," was long and loudly ap
plauded. In response they sang "The
Belle of Honolulu," and so taken with it
was the audience that the curtain had to
be rung down to shut off the applause.
A piano duet, by Misses Agnes and Dol
lle Cowley; a recitation. Bill Nye's "Spar
tlcus." by Joseph Blanchard, and a Ger
man dialect sketch, by Krank Kelly, were
all good.
Miss Edith Blanchard sang "The Kerry
Danco" ln a very sweet soprano voice,
and as an encore gave "The Last Rose of
Emma and Goldie Gillette did another
song and dance, which served to accen
tuate their former success.
A black-face specialty and song, "The
Wedding of the Chinee and the Coon,"
by M. J. Carr; an Irish sketch, by Frank
Kelly, and a piano solo, by Miss S. Mor
gan, were all meritorious perfomances.
The programme was completed with a
comedy drama' entitled "Turn Him Out,"
with the following cast:
Nicodemus Nobbs Tom Lynch
Susy, Maid-Servant Mary Moriarty
Julia. Mrs. Moke Mary Hesslin
Moke John Blanchard
Roseleaf Mr. Moore
It was a very funny little one-act sketch
and sent the audience home ln the best
of good humors.
A Large Number Enjoy a Varied and
Interesting- Programme.
Cretin hall was crowded to the doors
last night during the entertainment in
honor of St. Patrick's day, which was
given by the Crusaders' Dramatic club
and a number of singers and others.
Nearly every one identified with the ca
thedral parish and Cretin hall was pres
ent at the entertainment, and the pro
gramme, though lengthy, was unusually
The programme was opened by Mrs. F.
L. Hoffman, who played a medley of
Irish air 3, to the delight of the audience.
A quartette, composed of L. Moore, W.
Connell, F. Gehan and R. McCarthy, with
a chorus, sang "We'll Stand by the
Flag" ln a stirring manner which evoked
the heartiest applause. Joseph Mullen
recited "Rieiizl's Address" In a most ef
fective manner, and then Miss Anna Mc-
Clure and chorus sang "The Irish Are
Thomas Cawley played a violin solo so
beautifully that he was obliged to re
spond to an encore, and then Mathew Mil
ler sang "Carry Me Back to Old Vir
ginia." Eight little girls in white dresses
decorated with green ribbon sang an
"Action Song" very prettily, and were
followed by Francis Geehan and Thomas
Mulchrone and chorus, who rendered
"The Wearing of the Green." Miss M.
McMahon, violinist, and Miss J. Minea,
pianist, played "Sounds From Home,"
and Charles Spear recited "Eugene
Aram's Dream."
The Cretin School Glee club next sang
an Irish medley, and Paul Cole read
James Whltcomb Riley's poem, "The Old
Band." Mr. Cole's reading was so good
that he was called upon to read another
of Riley's well known poems. This. part
of the programme closed with the singing
of "Blest of God, the God of Nations" by
the girls' chorus.
The event of the evening was then en
joyed by the audience. This was a short
play called "A Quiet Family," by the
Crusaders' Dramatic club, which proved
to be a very entertaining farce comedy.
It was nearly midnight when the pro
gramme was concluded.
Two Large Audiences Attend the
Entertainments Given.
Every inch of available standing room
was at a premium last night at the St.
Patrick's entertainment at Columbia
hall, at Virginia avenue and Blair
street, ln the parish of St. Vincent de
Paul. The entertainment opened with. an
overture, "Gems of by Mc-
Curdy's orchestra, and Prof. William
Maener played several national airs on
the piano, including "God Save Ireland"
and the "Star Spangled Banner." Miss
Mary Wilsbacher gave a recitation, and
was followed by ' Miss Mary O'Connell,
who gave as a piano solo "The Last Rose
of Summer." Miss A. McClure sang "St.
Patrick's Day" in a clear soprano voice,
and Louis Nash recited "Dawn on the
Hills of Ireland." T. F. Carey sang "A
Son of the Emerald Isle."
Then Pierce Butler delivered an elo
quent address on "Ireland and Its Apos
tle," in which he reviewed the life of St.
Patrick and paid a tribute to the Emer
ald isle.
James J. Rochford followed with spe
cialties, Miss Tlllle McGulre sang, D. Mc-
Curdy gave a violin solo, and John Con
roy danced the highland fling. Prof.
Maener sang "Kathleen Mavourneen"
very touchingly, and gave way to the
Gaelic minuet by Messrs. Qulnn, Sulli
van, Needham, Keaney, Qulnn, No
lan, McLaughlin, Needham and Mc-
A quartette, composed of Miss T- Mc-
Gulre. Mrs. J. Noonan, Charles Bloeser
and J. Noonan, sang "Oh, the Days Are
Gone." The entertainment closed with a
reading by T. F. Martin, a song by J. J.
Haas, and comic specialties by Miss
Pearl Poler. Every number was heartily
encored. A matinee performance was
given during the afternoon.
R. C. Bowman, the Cartoonist, Ably
Assisted by Humorist Nolan.
The St. Patrick's day entertainment un
der the auspices of the societies of the
parish of St. Patrick's church, given last
wight at St. Bernard's hall on Rose
street, was an entire success and was
greeted with a packed house. Before the
hour of tho opening of the programme
•very seat was taken and standing room
was at a premium.
The entertainment was varied ln char
acter, embracing many fine vocal selec
tions and specialties. R. C. Bowman, of
the Minneapolis Tribune, was present
and gave a chalk talk, which was re
ceived with enthusiastic applause. Later
In the evening he explained "Where Pic
tures Come From" with the aid of a
crayon and several sheets of paper, ln
a manner which was highly entertaining.
The explanation was accompanied by
several original verses.
W. I. Nolan, of Minneapolis, gave sev
eral pleasing character Impersonations
In Canadian, French, Swedish and Irish
dialect and won liberal applause and sev
eral hearty encores. The young ladies of
the parish presented two specialties of a
very pleasing character, the "Japanese
chorus" and "Colored Damosels." Both
were replete with catchy songs and hits
and were very enjoyable. The ladles' or
chestra, composed of string Instruments,
furnished music for the occasion, and the
programme closed with the finale, "God
Save Ireland," sung by a chorus of young
ladies, the audience joining ln the
Criterion Amateur Dramatic Com
pany Furnishes the Feature.
Arthur Hennequln's three-act comedy
"Selwyn's Night Out," presented by the
Criterion Amateur Dramatic company,
was the prlnlcpal feature of the St.
Patrick's entertainment given at St.
John's hall, at Forest and Francis
streets, last evening. The play was well
staged and Very capably presented to a
large and appreciative audience. Joseph
J. Pfister, ln the title role, did some very
clever work, and Miss Kathryn Biorce,
as Mrs. Selwyn, showed a very clear
conception of the requirements of the
part. Miss Loretta Hlckey made a
charming Grace Selwyn, and Miss GeT
trude Jacobson, Miss Florence Starkey
and Miss Fanny Dean were excellent in
the minor roles. The other members of
the company, Frank H. Ford, Edward
Farrell and Francis W. Inden were all
The comedy was preceded with an ad
dress by Rev. Patrick Danehy, followed
by a piano duet by Miss Mlna Rowe and
Louis Chryst. Between acts 1 and 2
there was a song by Miss Gertrude Ja
cobson, accompanied by Miss Edith To
zer, and between acts 2 and 8 a recita
tion by Miss Fanny " Dean. George
Dames played a number of piano selec
tions. Every number on the programme
was enthusiastically received.
Plans otf the Association as Discus
sed at a Meeting: Held Last Night
Commercial Bodies Asked to
Give Their Support to the Bill.
At a meeting of the White Bear Im
provement association held in the rooms
of the Commercial club last night the
legislative committee was authorized to
present a bill to the legislature author
izing boards of county commissioners in
counties of 350,000 and over to vote money
to make improvements in lakes and water
ways. The bill will be presented to the
Ramsey county delegation with the re
quest that It be introduced and be given
support by the local representatives ln
the law-making body.
The bill seeks to authorize the county
commissioners to vote a sum not to ex
coed $3,000 per year for the improvement
of White Bear lake. The sum as first
proposed was $hOOO per year, and then
some members of the association thought
it best to have the amount larger, inas
much as it was left to the discretion of
the hoard as to how much of that sum
would be voted for the desired Improve
ments. The amount was subsequently
Increased to $5,000 per year. A committee
composed of J. C. Jenson, Julius Gold
smith, J. D. O'Brien, John Schultz and
A. M. Lawton presented the bill to the
local delegation. The measure was re
ferred back, with the suggestion that
the amount was rather large, and the
meeting last evening voted to compro
mise on the matter and make the amount
Ross Clark thought It well for the as
sociation to be modest In its demands,
and incidentally suggested that It might
not be well to have too many irons ln
the fire. On the latter point all did not
agree with the speaker.
William Dampler thought, if even a
small appropriation was authorized, it
would give the lake people a start and
might be a small beginning of a great

private subscription. If the county would
take the Initiative and give something
to keep the water In the lake up and
assist in building the proposed boule
It was proposed to secure the assistance
of the Commercial club and chamber of
commerce ln the Interest of the bill. The
committee named above was authorized
to meet both commercial bodies and en
list their assistance, and go before the
legislature with a strong representation.
J. C. Jenson offered a resolution asking
the board of county commissioners to
have a survey made of the most feasible
route around the lake for a lake shore
boulevard. The matter came up for a
lively discussion. Inasmuch as part of
the shore lihe was In Washington county,
there was some doubt as to whether the
board of Ramsey county would have
power to make a survey of the entire
lake. The resolution was passed, how
ever, and a committee appointed to ap
pear before the board and urge the mat

Secretary Kost reported that the sur

lakes had not been made on account of
the weather conditions, but would prob

Y. M. C. A.
V. tin Giving an I'xhihK ion Willi
Charles Ledger A Might HltcU
In the Signals and the Athlete
Falls to the Floor, a lliMiuncr ixf
Eighteen Feet Ills Anna and
Back Are Injured.
During the progress of an Interesting
athletic entertainment given In honor of
St. Patrick's day at the Y. M. C. A.
gymnasium last evening, an accident oc
curred which might easily have cost the
life of the assistant physical director of
the association, J. H. Hanks.
The entertainment was very largely at
tended and the gallery of tho spacious
gymnasium was filled with people.
Among other numbers was a double high
trapeze act by J. H. Hanks, the assistant
director, and Chas. Ledger, a well known
athlete. This was to have been given as
the third number and was looked for
ward to with great interest, the act be
ing hazardous to all but the most ex
perienced athletes. Two trapezes were
hung from the high ceiling of the room
and the two athletes were to hang from
one during the progress of the act, while
one made a flying jump to the other.
After the preliminary work, Mr. Led
ger, who ls an old-time professional
athlete, who has recently taken out a
card lh the association, took his position
oft - the higher trapeze and Mr. Hanks
followed him, afterward climbing down
and hanging from Mr. Ledger's hands, in
what is known as" the brother act.
Preparations had been made and or
ders given that when the director, Mr.
Hanks, gave the signal "all right," an
assistant at the second trapeze should
allow It to swing towards the perform
ers, thus assisting him to catch It on
the Jump.
The two athletes hung on the first tra
peze, swinging slightly, and were almost
ready for the final act, when someone
gave the signal agreed upon. Mr. Led
ger, who was holding the other man,
heard the word and loosened his hold,
Mr. Hanks falling to the oak floor of the
gymnasium, twenty feet below.
The force of his fall was accentuated
by the slight motion of the trapeze upon
which he hung, and ho struck with great
violence and lay without motion. The
people ln the gallery jumped to their feet,
thinking that the man "had been killed,
but he moved slightly, and as assistance
reached him gave a few brief directions.
Dr. Canac-Marquis was at once sum
moned, while Hank's friends anxiously
waited the result of the preliminary ex
amination. Strange to say, his injuries
were by no means as dangerous as at
first thought, and he was taken to St.
Luke's hospital shortly afterwards ln the

"Only the First Step
Is Difficult"
The first step in Spring
should be to cleanse Nature 's
house from Winter's accumu
lations. Hood's Sarsaparilla
does this work easily* It is
America's Greatest Spring
Medicine. It purifies the
blood, as millions of people
say. It makes the weak
strong, as nervous men and
women gladly testify.
It cures all blood diseases, as thou
sands of cured voluntarily write. It
is just the medicine for you, as you
will gladly say after you have given
it a fair trial.
Pimples— "Headaches, nose bleed and
pimples made me so weak that I could
not work. Hood's Sarsaparilla gave me
good sleep, strength, and cured me."
Arthur M. Ehrentraut, 1941 West Fay
ette Street, Syracuse, N. Y.
Pare Blolod— "My work was formerly
a burden, but now It ls a pleasure, and
all because Hood's Sarsaparilla gave me
new, pure blood. I now have good color
and eat well." Mrs. Alfred A. Howard,
105 Summer Street, Taunton, Mass.
Consumptive Cough — "Five years
ago I had a consumptive cough which
reduced me to a skeleton. "Was advised
to take Hood's Sarsaparilla. which I did,
and recovered normal health. I have
been well ever since." Matilda Bridge

Leg Sores— "Sores on my wife's limb
were so bad she could not walk. Phy

crutches. After taking Hood's Sarsapa
rilla, she laid them aside and walked
freely." Fred A. Hoyle, Reynolds Bridge,
Poor Health— "l never saw anything

At 4 o'clock Mr. O'Connor was formally

he found a larg'j number of his friends
assembled around a handsome oak roll
top desk, with a big carved oak chair
to match, and all sorts of solid silver and
cut glass accessories. These were a tes
timonial from Mr. O'Connor's friends, and
he was taken entirely by surprise. He
breathed hard when the situation dawned
upon him, and then United States District
Attorney Robert O. Evans, standing near
an enormous bouquet that ornamented
the desk, said:
"Mr. O'Connor, you are brought before
this court for the purpose of allowing
your friends to testify the estimation in
which they have held you. Their busi
ness relatlonsrwith you have always been
most pleasant, and It gives us great pleas
ure on behalf of those who have served
with you to. present you with this deck
and chair and those of your other friends
to present you with the embellishments
that are on the desk."
"I am sorry that I cannot make a
speech," replied Mr. O'Connor. "I wish
on this occasion that I was a speech
maker. I can only thank you all."
Those present at the giving of the tes
timonial were: Miss Margaret 1,. Mul

The action for $10,000 damages against
Mr. Lathrop E. Reed, ln Chicago, as
told ln The Qlo b e of yesterday, was
brought by Mrs. Mary W. Thompson, a
widow, living in a flat at No. 09 Thirty
third street, ln that city. Mr. Reed lives
at the Hyde Park hotel. The damages
which she says she has sustained arise
from an alleged remark by the defendant
reflecting on her character. As a fur
ther cause of injury, she declares that
Mr. Reed broke open a receptacle for
mail at the flat of Mrs. Thompson, took
from It a letter addressed to her, opened
the letter, read it, and returned It to tha
mall box.
In reply to the declaration, the defend
ant, by his attorney, has filed a demur
rer. The defense insists ln It on a more
specific declaVatlon of the Injuries re
ceived. In regard to the allegations that
the defendant- broke open the letter box
and opened a letter addressed to the
plaintiff, the defendant makes a plea
denying the alleged illegality of the act.
