ACCUSES HIM OF "MALIGNAST
MEETING RATHER STORMY
A Bit of Heat Injected Into the Ses-
Nion of the Bonrd nt the Meet
tiijs Yessterdny Superintendent
Lewis Pulls the Law "When the
Question of Spending; Money for
Duluth Comes I'p.
The state normal school board met
yesterday, and, as was expected, adopted
the report of the special committee, re
commending a discontinuance of the
strictly elementary features of the nor
mal course. The report was a bitter pill
for the presidents of the schools, but
they accepted the Inevitable with as
good grace as could be expected.
After the stormy meeting of the com
mittee on Thursday the board settled
down to a more dignified method of pro
cedure and there was no repetition of the
exciting session of the day before.
The special committee submitted its re
port, which was as follows:
The special committee appointed by the
normal school board on Feb. 25, 1599, to
consider the resolutions introduced on
said day, in reference to the discontinu
ance of the "C" class in the Winona
normal school, and the "C" class ln the
Mankato normal school, make the fol
That, what are known as the "C"
classes in the normal schools at Winona,
Mankato and St. Cloud, should be dis
continued from date, except as to those
students now doing work in said classes.
That persons holding teachers' certifi
cates of the second grade who shall have
taught in any public school in this state,
with ability and success for the term of
six months, should be permitted to take
special work ln the normal schools of this
state, and should be admitted to said
schools without examination for the pur
pose of doing said special work.
That the presidents of the several nor
mal schools should revise their courses of
study so as to provide for a standard of
admission in accordance with the above,
and for such extension of the courses of
study as shall give professional training
of the highest order, and academical
training which shall supplement the
scholastic work done ln the high schools
of this state.
When this resolution was read Director
Mitchell arose and said that he was sur
prised beyond measure at its wording, as
it was the first intimation he had re
ceived that St. Cloud was to be included
in the report. It had not been so stated
at the former meeting and it was gen
erally understood that only Mankato and
Winona were to be Included In the reso
lution. He was taken by surprise to
such an extent, he said, that he was at a
loss to know what to do. He regretted
that such action had been taken without
his being informed of It. Had he known,
he should have come with facts and fig
ures, giving his side of the case and he
should have had several representatives
of the St. Cloud school present with him
to argue the matter. He asked if he
might be informed as to why the change
had been decided upon so far as St. Cloud
President Ankeny replied that after it
had been fully discussed and considered
in all its features it had been agreed that j
It would be unwise and unjust to dis- '
criminate. If it was to be a wise and
good thing he thought that St. Cloud
should be entitled to share ln the re
wards of the new scheme.
Director Mitchell said that he had con
fidently expected that St. Cloud would be
omitted from the new order of things for
another year at least, as he understood
It to be a generally conceded fact that
the St. Cloud school was not upon an
equal footing, with the two older institu
tions. St. Cloud, he argued, was not sit
uated so fortunately as the others so far
as tributary high schools were con
cerned, and if the resolution included
that school it would cut off half their
population and give them little to draw
upon to replace the students so cut off.
Mr. Lewis said that it had been appa
rent to the committee that If the stand
ard was raised in two schools and not at
St. Cloud, that the result would be an
Immediate deluge of seventh and eighth
grade pupils on the St. Cloud normal
school, and a St. Cloud certificate there
fore would not have any significance
and, Indeed, such a state of affairs would
leave matters Just as they are now.
SUPT. JORDAN'S BOYCOTT.
Director Mitchell again protested that
it was unfair, and Director Morey with
some warmth replied that Mr. Mitchell
evidently had forgotten his geography or
he would not say St. Cloud had no tribu
tary high schools. As a matter of fact
there were more high schools tributary
to St. Cloud than to any of the other
normal schools. Then again he re
minded Mr. Mitchell that the St. Cloud
people had gone before the legislature
and Insisted that they were entitled to
the same recognition as th two older
schools and had just as good financial
backing and as large attendance; and ln
every way were equal to the other two.
Bo upon his own word Mr. Mitchell stood
accused of confessing, that St. Cloud was
not one whit behind the other schools in
Prof. Lewis reminded Mr. Mitchell that
the Twin City high schools contributed
largely to St. Cloud. Then came a slight
"We will never get any Twin City pu
pils so long as Supt. Jordan, of Minne
apolis, persists in his malignant and un
just boycott of our school. I might as
well speak plainly. Dr. Jordan has done
all he could to turn students away from
St. Cloud simply because we did not fol
low his dictation and elect Mr. Carhart
president of our school. He has kept up
this bitter hostility continually since we
turned Carhart down. It ls time for
President Ankeny thought that if this
was so the matter should be called to
the attention of the Minneapolis board
of education either by St. Cloud's faculty
or by the normal board, and he was sure
the Minneapolis board would not toler
ate any such prejudiced opposition. "If
this ls a fact — "
"It is a fact— a most notorious fact,"
warmly said Mr. Mitchell.
Then the controversy subsided and the
resolution was taken up. Director Phelps
urged the board to go slow and take no
precipitate step. Mr. Mitchell moved an
amendment to let St. Cloud out of the re-
ibe 81 fml (globe
port. This was voted down, Phelps and
Mitchell voting yes.
Then an amendment by Mitchell to
make th new plan take effect In Septem
ber 1900 was proposed and Mr. Morey op
posed, saying that Winona was ready
for the change at once. This was voted
down also. Then Director Phelps moved
a tlejlOOma rfodl dwo rodr rr rfr rr rtr
that the St. Cloud be given until Septem
ber 1900 to fall Into the new arrangement.
This was lost, the vote being a tie.
Then the report of the committe was
adopted by a vote of seven to one, Direc
tor Mitchell voting no.
The same committee offered the fol
lowing resolution which was adopted by
a unanimous vote:
"Resolved, That the three-year ele-
Tnentary normal course be, and the same
Is hereby abolished, except as to those
students now working in A and B classes
of the several normal schools of the
The Duluth normal school appropria
tion was discussed briefly and it was de
cided to lay the whole matter over to
the June meeting. There was some doubt
in the minds of the members as to
whether the 175,000 appropriation was to
be used in completing the building or
whether the funds were to be used as far
as they would go.
Supt. Lewis took a very decided stand
on this and said he thought the board
should confine itself strictly to the limits
of the appropriation. The other member,
of the board agreed with him on this and
at the June meeting the matter will be
fully discussed and defipate plans made
Director Nye presented the resignation
of President Lord, which stated that it
was with regret that he left his educa
tional work in Minnesota. He had re
ceived a very flattering oifer at a much
larger salary, and felt constrained to ac
cept. He hod been at Moorhead eleven
Directors Morey, Mitchell and Ham

occasion of Prof. Lord's departure from

graceful set of resolutions which were
The board then elected F. A. Weld,
superintendent of the Stillwater schools
to fill the vacancy. There were twenty
four applications for the place and the
selection was made upon second, ballot.
At the afternoon session practically
nothing was done further than to revise
the rules of the board. One of the
changes decided upon provides for five
regular meetings of the board during the
year, three of which are to be held at
the state house and two at the schools.

Hopkins, of Illinois, is one of the strong
men who seem to have a good chance of

road Company. The toad, previous to
the election of Mayor Jones, had sought
to condemn certain property in the city
for the purpose of getting a right of way.
The question of granting the franchise
became an issue in the campaign, and
Mayor Jones' opposition to it contributed
largely to his election. Mayor Jones
Is opposed to granting the use of the
streets to private corporations, and the
city filed a motion to prevent further
condemnation of property by the rail
road The judge ln deciding against the
city stated that he did so because the
law was plain on the point, although it
conflicted with his private views. The
road will be compelled to go before the
city council, however, for certain priv
ileges, and it is doubtful If the line can
be built unless Mayor Jones and his
friends in the council consent.

Careful Investigation of the Re

Some Change in the Condition of

Foundation No Cause for Alarm
Grave apprehension developed at the
court house yesterday over the discovery
that the ponderous tower of the $1,000,
--000 structure is sinking. From base to
summit irregular craks are traceable
about the tower, while the heavy stone
window caps from the second floor up
ward are snapped ln two, and the base
ment floor ln the vicinity of the tower
foundation is forced up in ridges and
curves, showing conclusively that the
great pile of stone rests upon an insecure
The indications are that the tower has
already settled something over four in
ches. That the sinking of the heavy struc
ture has been enough to warrant some
steps being taken to prevent further dam
age is evidenced by the fact that a care
ful examination of the cracks and founda
tion was yesterday made by Building
Inspector Haas. Little could be learned
of the exact conditions of the tower from
Mr. Haas. He stated, however, that there
was no doubt but that the tower was
sinking, but laughed at the suggestion
of a possible castrophe, and declared that
there was no immediate danger of the
structure toppling over.
The court house is erected upon a nat
ural stone foundation, as the site is com
posed of stratified rock. In addition to
this base the building rests upon a strong
masonry foundation, constructed about

and means committee he has acquired a
knowledge of the tariff question and of
public finance that is not commonly the
possession of congressmen. Mr. Hopkins
is fifty-three years old and robust enough
to stand the strain of the speaker's work.
He is a native of Illinois and a popular
man in the capital. Hopkins' strongest
rival— at least so far as can be seen now—
is James Schoolcraft Sherman, of the
-Twenty-fifth New York district. Mr.
Sherman is forty-five years old and has
been in congress five terms and was newly
elected to the sixth. He is a native of
the building in a trench several feet below
the basement level. These were consld
erd, whn the building was erected, the
most ideal conditions. But the natural
conditions seem not to have been what
they were thought. In fact it is now
said that the bed of stone under the
building is in part composed of lime stone
and soap stone, two of the softest rock
formations, and that parts of the founda
tion are resting upon this material. The
sinking of the tower is believed to be
due to the fact that the lime stone and
soap stone rock underlie its base.
To one of the Janitors belongs the credit
of discovering the condition of the tower.
When he discovered the cracks in the out
side wall the matter was at once report
ed to the building inspector, and an ex
amination followed. The small cracks
form an irregular, " though continuous
crevice from the base of the tower on
the west side clear to the top, circling
from the second story across the front of
the tower, and ending at the top on the
east side. Beside the broken window
caps in the path of the crack many of
the thick blocks of granite are snapped
in two, while in some cases the crack
follows the natural joining of the blocks.
In one corner near the top of the tower
part of one heavy block of stone has
been crushed out of place.
What appears to be part of the re
sult of the settling of the tower is ap
parent in the basement of the building
about the tower foundation. The floor is
raised in places as though forced up
wards by reason* of tremendous pressure
at the extremities, while in other locali
ties are small depressions as if the force
had broken out at these points. Directly
under the tower the tiles of the floor
are so loosened that the passer-by kicks
them from their place. In the main cor
ridor of the basement, back of the tower,
the floor Is raised to a considerable ridg^
in the center, sloping away on either
side nearly a foot.
Strict secrecy was urged upon the court
house attaches who became aware of
the danger of the sinking tower, and
though Building Inspector Haas affected
to make light of the matter there ls evi
dently much concern over the discovery.
The condition of the floor in the base
ment the building inspector does not at
tribute to the settling of the tower. He
says the floor ls "heaving," as the result
of the conditions existing under it. His
explanation ls that the lime stone and
soap stone formation, . upon which the
floor is constructed, produces a sort of
fermentation, as he termed it, that forced
the small tiles out of place. Nevertheless
Building Inspector Haaa admitted that
tho tower was sinking, and that the
cracks running about the structure were
undoubtedly produced by the settling of
the heavy pile. As near as can be Judged
the tower does not appear to be toppling
to any degree in one direction, but rather
seems to be settling evenly.
What steps will be taken to prevent
the demolition of the chief architectural
ornament of the court house has not yet
been decided upon. Assemblyman Denny
was with Building Inspector Haas during
the examination, but neither was ready to
suggest a remedy. That something will
be done Immediately, however, ls almost
certain, and it is probable that the mat
ter will be called to the attention of the

at Length About the 111b Fi*_ht
That Practically Terminated
"With the Exoneration of Mr.
Quay— Senior Pennsylvania Sen.
ator Declines to Discuss the Case.
PHILADELPHIA, April 21.— The jury
in the conspiracy case against Matthew
Stanley Quay today declared him not
guilty of the charge of having conspired,
with the late Cashier Hopkins, of the
People's bank, to misuse the funds of the
state of Pennsylvania.
The charges against Senator Quay fol
lowed the collapse of the People's bank
ln March, 1898, and the examination of its
books by a receiver. The warrants were
issued ln the following October, and In
cluded, besides Mr. Quay and his son,
the names of Charles H. McKee, a
Pittsburg lawyer, and ex-State Treas
urer Benjamin J. Haywood. On Nov. 21
the grand jury found true bills against
all but McKee. The suicide of Cashier
Hopkins, just prior to the bank's failure,
prevented his coming, within the scope
of criminal action. The Indictments were
Aye In number. These were reduced to
four by the death of Mr. Haywood, on
Feb. 23, of this year. One week after
these bills had been found, counsel for
Mr. Quay and the other defendants fil
ed demurrers to four of them, and mov
ed to quash the fifth. Judge Finletter, on
Dec. 1, decided against the defendants.
Counsel then carried the case to the su
preme court on the plea, among other
conditions, that the prosecution was ac
tuated by political motives, which would
function. -He is what Dickens calls "a
fine figure of a man" and looks not un
like Roscoe Conkling, who was prover
bially the Apollo of congress. David
Bremner Henderson is the fourth member
of the quartette of congressmen who are
most forward in the discussion about the
chair. He represents the Third lowa dis
trict and at the last election the voters
there returned him a ninth time to his
seat. Mr. Henderson is a native of Scot
land and is fifty-nine years old. He Is
familiar with all the ins and outs of con
gressional work and would not need many
prevent an Impartial trial in this county.
The supreme court declined to interfere.
The trial was set for Feb. 20, and was
postponed until the 27th, when it was
again postponed until Monday of last
SCENE IN COURT.
When the jury filed Into court and an
nounced its verdict of "not guilty," there
was an attempt at a demonstration, but
this was sternly repressed by the court
officers, whose loud shouts of "order,"
"order, "silence," were effective in silenc
ing those jubilant spirits who wished to
give vent to their satisfaction by cheer
ing. The officers were unable, however,
to keep back those who struggled to get
to Senator Quay, and congratulate him.
Chairs were upset, tables were brushed
aside, and hats were smashed by the
crowd. Senator Quay, with a broad smile
on his face, responded pleasantly to the
greetings and congratulations of those
who crowded around. A few of his po
litical friends were there, and these men
were loud and sincere In ' their expres
Although the court officers prevented
the cheering ln the court room, their jur
isdiction did not extend to the corridors
of the city hall, and the first group of
men who left the court room sent up a
mighty shout, which was taken up and
repeated by the crowds just out
side the "dead line" drawn by the watch
man, beyond which only possessors of
tickets were allowed to pass. As soon as
Senator Quay could get away from those
anxious to shake his hand and congratu
late him, he made his way, accompanied
by his counsel, to the elevator, to de
scend to the street from the sixth floor
of the municipal building. Here the
scenes In the court room were repeated.
Everybody wanted to say something
pleasant to him, and crowds gathered
near the elevator shaft on each floor to
watch the car carrying the distinguished
party as it descended to the street.
Crowds also were in the avenue sur
rounding the city hall entrance, and the
neighboring stamping ground for poli
ticians of the town. Here the enthusiasm
was immense as the senator emerged
from the door. A group of enthusiasts
rushed up and attempted to hoist him
upon their shoulders, but the senator
waved them back, saying: "Oh, no, oh,
no; I'm too old a man for that."

spirits, probably owing to the prevalent
rumor that only one of the jurors was
advisers If he were placed in the speak
er's chair. Another lowa man whose
name seems prominent in this same dis
cussion is William Peters Hepburn. He is
an older hand than even Henderson and
was elected one congress previous to that
representative, although he has not been
always re-elected. Charles Henry Gros

has the experience and the capacity, but
he is not a native of Ohio, although living
there. Joseph G. Cannon, of Illinois, and
Joseph W. Babcock, of Wisconsin, are
holding out against him. He looked as
well as he has at any time during the
past few months, and said that he felt
better than he has for a long while. This
improvement in his health he attribut

of his favorite cigar during the hours

he declared that he is seriously consider

promptly from the foreman's lips the
words "not guilty," and at this polnt.Sen

at all or in any way express gratitude to

only comment on the verdict was:
"Well, I expected It."

NEW YORK, April 21.— (Special.' —
A special from Manila says;
"There seems to he no reat for
the* American soldiers here. This
morning, as early as 0 o'clock, three
companies of the Thirteenth Minne
sota and a similar number of mem
bers of the Somth Dakota regiment
were attacked by some 800 Fili
pinos, and a lively and somenhat
prolonged engagement followed.
The Mlnnesotans were marching
from Guigulnto, north of Bocave,
and the Dakotans from Bocave to a
Junction with the Minnesota men.
The rebel force, comprising fully
SOO men, was llrst encountered by
the Mlnnesotans. They held the
enemy ln check until the Dakotans
came up, and then the rebels re
tired ln good order to a point three
miles dlstiint, suffering heavy losses
aa they went. The Americans had
three men slightly wounded. Both
the Mfnnesotans and the Dakotans
ran short of ammunition and were
compelled to return to their camps.
They were victorious, but the ene
my is expected to retnrn an neur
the point formerly occupied by
their forces as they consider safe.
The American loss -was slight, only
one of the men of the Thirteenth
Minnesota being wounded.*'
WASHINGTON MEN ATTACKED.
MANILA, April 21.— A force of about
two hundred rebels yesterday afternoon
attacked the outposts of the Washington
regiment, near Tagsig, south of Pasig
and Pateros. Two companies immediate
ly engaged the enemy, and advanced into
the open in skirmish order. The rebels
were checked and routed, after two hours'
fighting, leaving twelve men killed on th.j
field and several wounded. The Ameri
can troops also obtained possession of
many Mauser rifles and many other
weapons. Three Americans were wound
The heat is intense. At noon the ther
mometers registered 05 degrees, and the
mercury was still rising. There were
several prostrations from the heat among
the troops, but only one man was wound
Later the army tugs opened fire on the
enemy along the river bank. The rebels
are unusually active west of Malolos, us
far as Calumpit. They have been busily
at work on their trenches and several
new trenches have been discovered with
in two miles of the railroad.
Fires are burning east of the railroad,
and It would appear that the rebels are
evacuating the foot-hill towns, ln antic
ipation of an attack upon the part of the
TROOPS FOR MANILA.
Nine Thousand of Those to Be Sent
NEW YORK, April 21.— A special from
Washington says: "Nearly 9,000 of the
regulars of 14,000 that the president has
determined to order to Gen. Otis during
the coming summer have been practically
selected, and no difficulty is apprehended
by the war department authorities In
securing the remaining 5,000 by the time
they are needed. The excellent outlook
ln Porto Rico and Cuba will, in all prob
ability, permit the withdrawal of four
more regiments from these islands before
the summer ls over, and the 5,000 thus
obtained will fill the requirements, either
of being sent forward directly to Manila,
or by relieving domestic garrisons for
service across the Pacific.
