NORTHERN PACIFIC PLAN TO GKT
MtOnD THE LAW I'OHUIU
SHIP BY WAY OF SUPEKIOH
All Kates Would lie Mnde on Tiiut
i:j«sls nud Include a De
tour Into Wis
The failure of the Northern Pacific di
r< < tors to take a< tion regarding the trans
fer of the S:. Paul & Duluth property was
a favorite theme of discussion In railroad
circles yesterday. The matter, according
to the general opinion, was one' which
was scheduled to come up at the New
York meeting. The failure to act is va
riously construed, many well-posted rail
men leaning to the theory that the
consolidation plans have failed. The ab
sence of direct advices from oflicials of
either road make 3it difficult to sura
iDarize the situation accurately.
Unofficially the information comes that
the railroad commissioners favor the ide:i
of a failure of the transfer plans. An of
ficial not a member of that body made
the following statement yesterday, when
asked what the railroad commission
thought of the present probability that
the consolidation plans would go through:
"I do not care to go on record as offi
cially declaring that the railroad commis
sion believes the consolidation a fail
ure. Yet, at the same time, I think I am
not far wrong in saying that the commis
sioners have been of the opinion that the
transfer plans would not be comple;cd.
Even if the Duluth property were now
to become a part of the Northern Pacific,
this would have no effect of changing the
bituation. The law would still apply as
forcibly as at present, and the railway
commission would have the same grounds
on which to base Its opinion that the con
solidation of the two properties Is ille
This statement refutes the declaration
that by consolidating ths two properties
at once, the interested companies would
gain a point on the law, and would estab
lish themselves on ground from which
they could carry on an advantageous
fight. Now that both the stockholders
of the Duluth and the directors of the
Northern Pacific have failed to take ac
tion, the situation contains much in sub
stantiation of the plans of the Northern
I'acific to put the Duluth under a man
ager favorable to Northern Pacific inter
ests, and conduct it is a separate line, al
ready outlined in the Globe.
At the railroad commission offices yes
ttrday a new complication was spoken of
which, if it became operative, misht re
sult in placing the Duluth out of the
power of the state commission. It is
learned that the Northern Pacific would
Use the Duluth, if consolidation plans car
ried, for its business between the cities
and the head of the lakes, making rates
via the Duluth to Carlton, in Minnesota,
end via its own line from Carlton to
West Superior and Ashland and to Du
luth. This short detour in ca::ying frelht
into Duluth would take it a few miles
through Wisconsin, and make all business
carried in this manner interstate business,
Bubjeot only to the orders of the inter-
Elate commission. In connection with the
fact that the interstate commission has
practically been denied the tight to fix
rates, the Northern Pacific's position
Kould then be almost unassailable.
WEDDED ON THES TWAIN.
Young Montaivau Took Advantage of
I''ast rHs*«-r:;?er Service.
Marriage at eighty miles an hour was
accomplished recently on a train run
ning out of St. Paul, rhe contracting
parties were Clara Marie Ilart, young
est daughter of W. A. Mart, a wealthy
banker of Rathdrum, Idaho, and O. B.
Masterson, a young business man of the
bride's home town. *
All these things occurred last Sunday.
The young woman in the case was young
and fair to look upon. She adon ■ ■
Master.son, who, in his own way, was
altogether respectable and eligible. He
was "i good connections and had a com
fortable income from a substantial bus
iness. The eldei Hart was loth to look
with favor upon the- young man's suit
anil the girl's whims ran in a direction
as ev.-nts showed somewhat opposite.
Saturday night the banker's dauguier H vt
a ]K-.rty of her friends together ami wi
nounced that the marriage, would take
place the following day. The place was
kept secret. The party gut together in
the morning, and the groom arrived
shortly with Judge Bradv, of the probate
court of that county. "Then the party
went to the depot and made hair breadth
connections with the North Coast Lim
Then a new difficulty showed itself
I lie tram was b> hind time, and the
track ahead for miles was level and
smooth. Tne engineer accordingly put
on all steam and soon began to leave
the mile posts behind at eighty an hour
Judge Brady bethought himself suddenly
that since Rathdrum is but s-ven miles
from tin- Washington state line his juris
diction was crawling out behind at a ter
rible pace. Quick action saved the day
however. The judge got the young people
before him instantly and said the blessed
words. They w«re man and wife with a
mir.ute and a half to spare.
Then Mr. and Mrs. Masterson went
on to Spokane and began an impromptu
honeymoon. A telegram got there first
however, announcing that the bride's fa
ther was on the trail. He has the rep
utation of being the wealthiest man in
Idaho and a devastating cyclone when
angry, and the brand new family left
at once for San Francisco. On ar'rivine
at Spokane the elder Hart found most of
his ill temper spent, and before he K ot
to San Francisco he felt sufficiently le-
Ileved to wire ahead and ask the nr-w
husband to meet him and talk out the
the matter like a man. Hart pere, Mas
terson and Masterson's be.<?t half formed
a party of three, which arrived Thurs
day night in Rathdrum. The young and
lovely daughter had worked her will arifl
gained the father's consent. Tired out
with his chase, he was willing to emulate
another famous man. "
"Let us have peace," said he.

HELD TO THEIR BARGAINS
Little Falls Electric and Water
Company HoliU the City to
Terms of Us Agree
The decision of Judge Lochren, of the
circuit court, yesterday, sustaining the
Little Falls Electric and Water company
in its suit against the city, is of much
wider api>lii'atiun than appears on the
face of It. It stands, in fact, as a ruling
on municipal franchises and contracts in
general, and holds, broadly, that munic
ipalities have no more right to violate the
terms of a bargain entered into with their
eyes open than have Individuals.
Volumes of testimony were submitted by
the parties in the case- The city based
Its position on two points, namely, that
the franchise had been granted for an
unreasonable term of years—thirty—and
that the hydrant rental was exorbitant.
The company sought to show that capi
tal would not risk investment of this sort
without liberal returns; that the fran
chise was not for an unreasonable time,
the charges not exorbitant, and asked an
injunction restraining the city from men
acing its interests by installing a munici
pal light and water plant. In gathering
testimony the litigants went into a num
ber of states for facts bearing on the
controversy, and the fund gathered has
busied the court since March 27, when the
case was heard.
Judge Loehren refused the injunction
asked for by the company, but he.d that,
as the city went into the deal wltb its
eyes open, there being no irregularities
on the part of the duly constituted munic
ipal officials, the city must stand by the
bargain the same as an individual. He
did not consider the thirty-year term un
reasonable, or the hydrant rental exor
bitant. He therefore ordered Judgment
for the plaintiff company, and that if the
parties could not stipulate a settlement
of their account, it should be referred to
Several years' rentals have been held
back by,the city, and a very considerate
turn is now due the company.
Davis, Kellogg & Severance, of St. Paul,
with C. A. Llnberg, of Little Falls, were
attorneys for the plaintiff, and Calhoun
& Bennett, of Little Falls, for the city.
MRS. FIMC ACQLITTED.
Exonerated of Blame for Death of
The second trial in the case of Uie
state against Mrs.' Anna Fink, charged
with having caused the death of Mrs.
Louise Mihlberger through a criminal
operation, resulted more favorably for
the defendant than the first trial, and
Mrs. Fink is now a free woman.
The case went to the jury <U 6 o'clock
Friday evening, arid the, jury spent the
night in reaching a verdict, and at 10:30
yesterday morning they returned a ver
dict of not guilty.
Litigation Over a Hotel.
A suit in equity has been filed in the
United States district court against the
Albert Lea Hotel company, of Albert X.ea,
Minn. The complainant is Marcus M.
Hall, of Cedar Rapids, 10., who wa3
the contracting builder.
Mr. Hall alleges that he was to have t
been paid $26,789 for completing the build
ing by Jan. 1, but the failure of the com
pany to comply with certain provisions
of the agreement caused a delay In the
work, and the structure was not finished
until March 20. Only $21,491.1S was paid
the contractor, and the action is taken
to recover the remainder, $8,501.91, includ
ing liens of mechanics. It Is said that
the hotel company gave a mortgage for
$20,000 to the Minnesota Loan & Trust
company before satisfying the claims
against it, in violation of law.

SAVINGS OF CHILDREN.
HOW THEY ARE GARNERED BY
That ii p-ni.y t-aved is a penny earned,
and that several pennies Bayed wHI re
sult in dollars, Is what tne Associated
Charities of St. Paul have for over thr»e
years I.een trying to teach the children
of St. Paul by nrvins of the Provident
Savings fund. The recordskkef.pf. by Sec
retary (iutridge, of the Associated Char
ities, show the result to be most encour
aging. There is nothing complicated in
the banking system of the savings fiiyd,
and no doubt that is one reason why the
children have taken it up with such in
terest. Stamp books are distributed, hav
ing on the outside the simple rules that
are to be observed by the depositors, to
gether with the name of the latter. In
side the book is a blank space for the
stamps. The latter can be purchased at
the different postal stations that the As
sociated Charities have established. If
. child has only Bayed 3 cents, the gum j

Case I knows Ue mule! He goea way!"
is not despised by those having charge
of the savings fund. It will purel
stamp showing that the purchuser~"has
that amount to his credit in tho fund. In
this mannor stray pennies that wnjid
otherwise go tor candy or cheap toys are
saved for the child, and perhaps the Bum
caved will buy him a pair of shwi, mit
tens or some other necessity to help him
through the winter
* Of course it Is not the money saved that
those having charge of the fund consider
of so much importance, but It Is the habit
of thrift and the appreciation of values
that they seek to instil by this method.
The postal stations have been made as
numerous as possible. In order that all
children may have an opportunity to save
their pennies, und Miss Hanson, of the
Commons, who has charge '^ the wurk
for the Associated Charities, calls on tl.osc
who are unable, on account of their youth,
or for some other reas-m, to visit the sta
tions. Miss Hanson collects the books and
turns them over t-» Mr. Gutridge, Hnd the
money is invested in th- namo of the
Associated Charities. Many of the sta
tions are established at the various
