Chaffee —Mill City NCWS. pLOBk'S MINNEAPOLIS OFFICE, " 20 WA&HiNGTON AY. SOUTH Advertising— Subscriptions- Tel. J—l. Tel. 2790 J-4 The Minneapolis Trust com.oarty cannot have the mortgage forc'.osure fees in volved in the Guaranty I.c-an receiver ship, over which it and certain creditors have been quarreling for several years past. Judges Elliott, Simpson, McGee and Brooks yesterday filed a decision holding that the trust company is charge able with all of the net foreclosure fees heretofore received, and that the uii collected portion of these fees is an asset of the Guaranty Loan estate, also that the receiver should credit the receiver ship account with all cash received as shown by its reports in excess of dis bursements. Of this there is now in the hand- of the trust company $3,277.92 in cash, and there is due and uncollected Jlo,3G!>.'.'!>. A report showing tho amount on hand end yet due was filed last December, and the hearing on the matter occurred last April. The creditors represented by Ca.pt. Hart and Mr. Bartleson, objected, claim- Ing a former adjudication by Judge Rus soil. This, however, was overruled. The matter was then taken up for an inves tigation on its merits. It was found that the Guaranty Loan at the time of the failure had outstanding debenture bonds amounting to $2,341,300 secured by moit gages to an amount 5 per cent in excess of the bonds. Of these $1,176,150 were al ready In default. It was :.greed that the foreclosure of such ef these as could not be collected otherwise should be under taken by the trust company, and over 700 foreclosures were made. The trust company claimed the fees provided for In the mortgages. The creditors object ing claimed they were the property of the estate. The court now holds that a tier deducting certain necessary ex penses, the estate must have credit for the net amount collected, and that the uncollected portion is to be treated as an Reset.

The crowd was of the most orderly character, not withstanding the size and cosmopolitan character. The outing was a great suc cess from a social and financial stand point. Bl MAYOR GRAY'S VETO SOITHEAST MINNEAPOLIS IM PKOVKMKXT ASSOCIATION OB JECTS TO THE EXPRESS They Claim It Would Make That Line I'nict ic-:i 11 > « Rnilroa.fl, and That the Speed 'Would Be Dan- B«rouK to Life. The members of the Southeast Improve ment association held a special meeting last evening, at the Oak street wigwam, to discuss the proposed street car service ordinance. Those present were unanimously opposed to the ordi nance, and are determined to fight the proposition to the bitter end. , The ordinance was vetoed by Mayor Gray, but will come up Friday evening before the council, when that body will determine whet'jrr or not it will pass the ordinance over the head of the chief exec utive. The residents and property oar ers of Southeast Minneapolis will fight the ordinance until Friday, and endeavor to get the council to sustain the mayor's veto. If that is impossible and the ordi nance is passed then they will resort to legal measures and get a ruling o? the court on the matter. Similar Question have been settled by the supreme courts of other states against the street railway companies, and it is almost certain that the same de cisions would be rendered in this state. Two of the members of the local branch and a large number of prominent lawyers have stated that, in their opinion, legal measures would stop the running of the cars as proposed, and a couple of very prominent attorneys have stated that they would be wiling to take the case through the courts if their expenses were guaranteed. The residents of the por tion of the city most immdieately affect ted have promised to supply plenty- of money to fight the plan. Aid. Chatfield said: "The maintenance of a through line that is of no benefit to the adjacent property is not in the power of the street railway company. Several lawyers and two of the judges of this city have given their opinion that a test case would result in our favor." It was the opinion of those present last night that the fast trains would make the street practically a railroad and make it worthless for any other uses. The abutting property could in no way be benefited, as the cars would not stop, but only, on the contrary, pass by at a haz ardous rate of speed. J. Dunn said: "The company, which was the originator and the party to be benefited by the proposed change, has put the people in the position of appli cants for the faster service. Through the ordinance now before the council they practically make the people offer them a bonus for less service than they have been hitherto enjoying; and this in the face of the fact that the council can. if it wishes, demend the increased service. The council has the power to determine what kind of cars shall be used, how often they shall run and how fast they shall run, and could get the express cars if desired without compelling the people to pay the additonal 50 per cent. The business men though quoted as in favor of the new ordinance do not care to have it passed, and there is no one who thoroughly understands the case but who is thoroughly opposed to the proposed change." Mr. Dunn was of the opinion that the removal of the maximum rate would serve as a widening wedge and that syoner or later the company would ask for permission to raise the price throughout the city. Mr. Purple said: "There are two ele ments in the city council supporting the change. One tlement is supporting it honestly, being ignorant of the true situ ation. The others are supporting it from corrupt motives and these we can not reach. Our hope is to explain the situa tion to the first element, and give them a full understanding of the needs of the case. Once they see it in the right light there will be no danger of it being passed over the mayor's veto. "Under a new ordinance the company would be able to get along with one less car and four less men than are now be ing employed; that the cost of running cars at a high rate of speed without stops If cheaper than running them ac cording to the new plan." The association passed a set of resolu tions indorsing the action of the mayor in vetoing the ordinance, statintr the reason for the objections to a fast service on the city streets, as follows AVhereas, the Twin City Rapid Transit company is desirous of running its cars through from Minneapolis to St Paul over the interurban line under the following conditions, with but one stop between Cedar avenue and Rice street in St Paul the company to have authority to charge 15 cents fare for the trip; incidentally to appropriate the streets traversed to itown use without compensation: the company to side track the local trains at all con venient points; time required for addi tional stops if any to be taken from the running time of the local trains; no time iimit for the fast trains; and Whereas, an ordinance containing the foregoing provisions has passed the city council, and has subsequently been vetoed by his honor, James Gray, mayor- Whereas, newspapers of said city have condemned such veto and attributed it to dishonest motives, political designs and characterizing it as demagoguery and Whereas, we most firmly believe the mayor was fully justified in such veto and that the same was not only right and on reasonable grounds, but made with a firm desire to serve the public and save the expenses arising from such proposed ordinance, for which no pretense of any consideration has been offered by said company, now therefore, Resolved, that we most heartily indorse said veto as a wise and courageous act designed to protect the citizens and tax payers, and we earnestly protest against the passage of said ordinance on the fol lowing, among other grounds: It will appropriate abutting property to the uses of the company for railway ; purposes without any benefit or consider | at ion to the owners; it will deteriorate i the local service, it will require the pay- I ment of additional fare without any con | sideration; it is not conceded that the service is necessary, but if it were the city council could require it without ask | ing any of the concessions as to fare, etc., the rate of speed and number of 1 cars, etc., being matters regulated by the council, because it Is the avowed pur pose of the company to run its cars from Minneapolis to St. Paul in thirty minutes, or at a rate of twenty miles an hour, while other city ordinances state that faster speed that eipht miles an hour is considered dangerous for steam cars, and the proposed spee,d on this line will be more dangerous than on railroads be cause the cars are run on the public streets: the ordinance absolutely fails to limit the speed of the cars. AXXIOL'S TO DIE. Kutli Olson Took Podnon Because Her Ilusltaiicl Deceived. Her. Ruth Olson made a desperate attempt to commit suicide yesterday at the apart ments of Mrs. Edna Grant, 729 Wash ington avenue south, Minneapolis^ by drinking a mixture of carbolic acid and glycerine.

One That Collected a Thousand Pounds for Charitable Purposes. London Chronicle. Railway dogs—those, that Is to say, that serve as collecting agents for the various charities—are likely to receive additional attention from travelers, after her majesty's kindly notice of Tim, one of their number, at Paddington on Mon day. There are still several collecting dogs on the various lines about the coun try, though the more famous of them are no more. One of the best known of these dead collectors was Help, a collie trained by a guard on the Brighton line. "I am Help, the Railway Dog of Eng land," read an inscription on a silvei medal attached to his collar, "traveling agent for the orphans of railway men who are killed on duty. My office Is at No. 65 Colebrooke row, London, where subscriptions will be thankfully re ceived and duly acknowledged." Thl? canine collector got no less than £1,000 during his charitable career. He Is to be seen today at Brigton station, pre served under a glass case. But perhaps the prince of railway dogs, though not engaged In collecting, was Snatch. He was a vagrant Cockney cur, and wag rescued from the loafers about the Euston terminus by one of the driv ers of the London and Northwestern company. Snatch always accompanied his master on the foot plate of the en gine, and was with him in a collision when the latter was killed. Snatch wag eventually run over in the London street* by a cab. But he lives In a sympathetl? picture by Harrison Weir. Another* well known railway dog was Jack, who was quite an institution at the Central sta tion, Derby. He was a very active, smooth-coated terrier, and lived In the porters' room. He could distinguish a Midland from a London and Northwest ern or a North Staffordshire train, and discriminate between the servants of the three companies. He was fond of tak ing trips by train, but is said to have always found his way back to Derby. CLAIMED THE BUNDLE, But the Girl Proved Him a Liar and Thief. Pittsburg News. Coming in on a summer car from High land park a couple of nights ago I wag occupying a rear seat. A young man who had had two girls out at the park, and who was bringing them home, was on the same seat. The conductor picked up a neatly done-up bundle and asked me: "Is this your package?" "It is not," I replied. "Is it youra?" he asked one of the girls. "No, sir," she replied. "Is it yours?" he asked the young man. "Let me see," he said with the hesita tion of a liar who is not an adept at the art. "I—l—l believe it is mine. Yes, that's mine." He took it and looked guilty, though he did his best to appear innocent. "I didn't know you had a bundle with you," remarked one of his female com panions in a low tone. The conductor had gone ahead to col lect fares, and the young man looked my way to learn whether I was Hpt-ning. Of course I wasn't, because that would h^v? been unmannerly. "I had it in my pocket," he repMed, "and probably you did not notice it." "What have you got in it?" asked the other girl, with natural curiosity. "Oh, just a couple of things that I thought I might have use for," he re plied, with assumed care'essness. "Let me see. now," said the girl; "I'll bet it's something you don't want us to see." "No, I assure you it isn't," he an swered. "Then let us see what It la," she per sisted. She reached for the bundle and he tried to keep it from her. There was a little struggle for possession of it, and the pa per came off. "Oh-h-h!" screamed both girls. It was no wonder, for wrapped In the paper was a nursing bottle, half filled with milk, with nipple attached, and two very useful and necessary articles of wearing apparel for infants. A liar and a thief had been brought suddenly to justice.

BOXELL CASE CLIMAX story of the prisoner the trump card of the defense: HE HAS HELPEtf HIS CASE Evidence of the ( Defendant - Given Clearly, and With an Appearance of Candor—Testimony to Offset the Points Made by the State— Court Room Crowded to Hear Joseph Boxell —Northwest News. BUFFALO. Minn.,; July 11.—(Special.)— Joseph Boxell, the . defendant in the murder case on trial here, has told his story and the general impression is that the defense has played its strongest card. It cannot be denied that the defendant made an excellent witness in his own behalf. The story of events on the night of the murder and of the days following when he was an object of suspicion, was clearly told without hesitation and in a manner that was apparently frank and open. His appearance on the stand was the dramatic climax of the long and in. teresting trial and the court house was thronged today to hear his testimony. When court convened this morning Boxell again took the stand and resumed his story where he left off the night be fore. At its close his counsel took him In hand and questioned him on points brought out by the state which had not been covered in his direct story. The conversation testified to by McClay In reference to getting a deed to the land on which the witness lived, was in 1896, the witness said, instead of 1807, and it was McClay who urged him to secure the dead for the purpose of arranging a trade with him for some land at Eden Valley. Witness did not express any de sire to get title to the land or make such a trade. As to family relations Boxell' said he was on the best of terms with his father. He went there as often as two or three times a week up to his father's death. He ha/1 seen his stepmother before the marriage.There was no trouble between them, and his lather and stepmother fre quently visited at his place. Then the question of the chariman which was proposed after the wedding of Mr. Boxell Sr., in connection with which the defendant is alleged to have said that he preferred a hanging bee, was touched upon. Boxell said t,hat upon the day in question he hart gone to Howard Lake to get some medicine'for his father who was pretty sick, and stopped at the lum ber office on hit way home. The ques tion of a charivari came up and he said he had never been to any, but would go to that one Asked if George Taylor and John Boxell wculd go, ;he told then, in reply that they had sall ] tne y would rather go to a hanging bee. There was never any trouble between witness and his father. - '■ ' ' The witness testified to a personal feel ing between himself and McVeety oc ht mv *? lhe Sale of some aPPIe 'tree* i y ,^?Xr ety to tne witness. jjCfter this foraiwu cnTsr threatened to -*&s: Boxen efsa?d nCh S n° ther diSpUted polnt isoxell said he ad no scratches on his left cXh eP H ne near a fingernail on the left hand, made on a nail when he was hanging up the harness Coming down to the time when he came under suspicion Boxell testified that he fowi^l^ McVeety first the Saturday fol at h?f f ce hUrde He was doln * cn°res f,nHi Tfather« S- -He did the chores there until jne 20, and McVeety drove up *hen he was at work,, His brother John Tnd 3 toM**^ at the time- John, came ou" and told the witness that McVeety want ed them to go to Buffalo to see Sheriff Nugent and Detective Howard. McVe"tv asked^about the reward which the sheriff ad ™f r and cx Pr^ed a desire to gain ,7*?*** told hlm that he hoped he could find the parties. The following Wednesday McVeety came to Lem Ferrill's. where he (Boxell) was working,, and took his coaf the wit - ness told hlm to wait until evening and he would go down with him. but Mc \ eety took the coat without the witness' °°m, supper he went down and asked McVeety about the coat; told him that he wanted it and threatened to have him arrested If he did not give it up He started towards an attorney's office- McVeety urged him to come back and told him he would bring the coat the next day. The defendant said that the duck coat had been used to butcher in before he got it; that he had worn it when de horning catti>.'and that he had carried a calf up from the pasture, and had had the nosebleed. McVeety asked him why he had washed it so soon after the murder He said that it had fallen into the hog yard and that the 'hogs had dragged it around in the dirt arid" that he had soak ed it in a barrel before it was washed He never made any different statements in regard to the coat. v He then returned to i;he matter of his arrest. Jan. 3. 1599, Constable Eppler, Mc- Veety, Mark Woolley and James Ege came to his house about 12 o'clock at night, and Eppler told him that he was his prisoner. He denied throwing the over alls in McVeety's face. He claimed that after taking him to Hrtward Lake they accused him of the! crime, and before he left the house, told him that he wou'd never see , his children •again; that they knew he was guiltyl and- that they wou'd convict and hang him. He said there were never any scratches on his hands directly after the murder. Jackson In Chairman. WINONA.

The Cent Gardes foundered with the second empire In 3870. The crops dated from the time of the Crimean war, when a visit from Queen Victoria was ex pected. Tho tallest and finest looking men and officers were selected from the cavalry. There were 137 of tho former and eleven of Lhe latter, but the number of the men was increased to 208. Their function was purely dacorative, and they chiefly served within the palace. What swells the officers were in their sky-blue uniform bedlght with golden lace! The corps had regulations of their own. Tiny were on no account, when on duty, to Ftir unless to salute the emperor or em press, and only then when specially ordered. The worst breach of discipline would have been to forget they were to be motionless as caryatides. One day Marshal Castollane, a vain, old, peppery personage, had occasion to see the emperor soon after the creation of the Cent Gardes. Two of them kept guard beside the door opening from the p.nteroom on the presence chamber. They remaned in the regulation attitude—that Is to say, with the right arm horizontally stretched out and holding a musket by the bayonet. Tht- butt end rested on the ground. The marshal was In uniform. Furious at not being saluted, he asked the one nearest to him what it meant. The Cent Gar do seemed neither to see nor to hear. Ct.stellane lost self-restraint and abused him. Still the soldier re mained impassive. The irate marshal sent for Co.. Verly to complain. The col onel fail;d to make him understand that approval and not chastisement was due. Thus the matter was brought before tho emperor, who gave th* complainant a sharp rap on the knuckles by expressing hi? pleasure at the Spartan attitude of a sS%w- STRENGTH OF MANHOOD W^r' l^'^ra Comes with a healthy nerve force.

Queer Reault of un Aralnnrhc in Norwegian Mountain?*. A snow avalanche with very unusual results is reported from Norway. It gave the people of Christiania .something to talk about for a week. The uniquj phenomenon occurred among the low mountains back of the capital on March 13. There had been an extraordinary fall of snow, and then came a big thaw, which melted a great deal of the ice in the little Lllledal river. A very largo number of fish had their home in this stream, and what happened to them is the unusual feature of this avalanche. In the night a large mass of snow on the hills on one side of the stream slipped from the slopes and glided with great velocity down into the river. The fa'•-» of the avalanche was about a mile in length, and for that distance it slid into the river, not sharing the river bed with the water, but violently ejecting the stream and the fish living in i\ The force of that concussl'-n must havo been very great, for the water and fi.-h were hurled hundreds of feet. Next morning the people were very much sur prised to find high on the slopes of tre hills bordering the other side of the val ley, a great number of fish scattered over the snow. For some day« there was a most unusual sort of fif.n'ner in progress. Men, women and,children were floundering about in the snow gathering the fish In baskets, and the people living along the valley had all the fish they could eat without baiting a hook. m WEST SUPERIOR, Wi?., July 11.—Guy Whalen, a ten-year-old boy, pulled an aching tooth with a string and bled to death yesterday in spite of all efforts of the physicians to stop the hemorrhage.
