HAAS WILL NOT TALK.
Lnte Building Inspector Says He Is

Former Building Inspector Haas is de

is that the recent experiences through

whether, being now a private citizen, he
feels that he has nothing to say that
would interest the general public can only
be conjectured. "You can't talk to me;
I am now a private citizen." vvas all the
answer he would vouchsafe" to a reporter

R. P. PATTON --EAVES CITY TO ES
CAPE CRIMINAL PROSE
CUTION
HE HAS A VERY BAD RECORD
Served Two Terms. for Forgery, and
' When Released Reformed for a
Short Time—Seemingly
*". Incorrigible. 3
R. P. Patton, a young man well
known in St. Paul, is today a fugitive
from legal proceedings which . he had
every reason to think were about to bo
instituted on account of a forged check
which he passed in this city a few days
ago. vV"V«7
Patton seems from an early age to
have been in the habit of committing
forgery whenever he was in need of
funds, and as far bach, as ten years ago
he was sent to Stillwater for this of
fense. AA'hile in the penitentiary he
learned the trade of shoemaking, and
being released on parole he secured
through the Influence of his family a
position with the shoe firm of Foot,
Schulze & Co. He had not long been
With this company before It was di3n
covered that he was playing fast and
loose with the stock, a . considerable
quantity of which he stole before he
was detected. His father paid for his
pllferings some $400, or . $"00, and later
secured for him a position with . a St.
Louis shoe concern. - The next heard
from him was that he had been -co
victed of forgery and sent to the Jeffer
son state prison for a term of two and a
half years. This sentence he served, and
on being released returned and secured
employment with the Grass Twine Manu
facturing company.' Here he seemed to
have reformed and for a time none of his
crooked games was in evidence. • .
Recently Patton came into the busi
ness office of the Globe and -borrowed
50 cents from the -cashier, for whom he
had worked several years ago. "_ A few
days later he entered the Globe office,
with a check on his foster father for $6,
and requested that it be cashed and the
amount of his indebtedness deducted.
This the cashier unwillingly did, and
when the check was presented at the
bank it was foufld to be a forgery. In
consideration for the family, prosecution
was not immediately commenced, al
though his foster father was in favor of
it. Two days ago he left the city, fear
ing that he could not much longer es
cape the punishment to which his dis
honesty had made him liable. It is
feared that has victimized several other
places on the, same game.
STRIKES A DIRECT BLOW
AT THE CITY
Senator Thompson's Bill Gives Companies the Right
to String Wires on Any Street.
The members of the Ramsey and Hen
nepin county delegations in the senate
either have failed -to comprehend the
effect which the bill that Sena
tor Thompson Is,trying to force through
the senate will have without the amend
ment proposed by.Senator Baldwin, or.
If they realize its effect upon the three
largest cities of the state, they are not
especially interested in the subject,
for ■ when : Senator ; Baldwin was
urging his amendment, - not one of: the
members, of the 'senate' from Ramsey or
Hennepin counties' raised " his voice 1 In
support of • that amendment," and "; some
of them, voted against, it....,' The bill, as
urged by Senator Thompson,l ; re-enacts
section 2,641, of , the Statutes of 1834,
amended so as to give to persons the
right to use the. roads and highways
for the purpose of maintaining telegraph
poles and wires.
TO PROTECT THE STREETS. .77.
Senator Baldwin proposes to amend the
bill so that it shall not give the right
to any person or corporation to use the
streets or avenues of any city of more
than 50,000 inhabitants for the purpose
of maintaining thereto/ telegraph or
telephone ' poles without the consent of
the council or other governing body of
such city. The law in question, without
Senator Thompson's amendment, has
been in force for forty years, and it
has always been the belief that the
cities had the right to grant or refuse
franchises to persons or corporations to
use the streets and avenues for telegraph
and telephone purposes, until a decision
rendered Judge Lochren, of the United
States' circuit court on the 15th day of
November last, and a recent decision
of Judge Canty, of Duluth, where in it
is held that the words "roads and high
ways'' include the streets and avenues
of every city in this state, and that cor
porations have the right to erect tel
egraph and telephone poles on any and
all streets without the consent of the
council. ' „..''

Yesterday was the last day for the pay
ment of personal- taxes, without ' having
to pay the penalty, and as a result over
$150,000 was collected by County Treasurer,
Motzdorf. This Is the' largest amount ever
collected' in the idhnty treasurer's office
for personal taxes one day.
During the day J. F. Calderwood, au

treasurer, called, on Mr. Metzdorf and
tendered him $2r]_o_._9, on the basis of the
company's valuation given to the as
sessor, ■ which ~ was $1,075,946. County
Treasurer Metzdorf refused to accept the
tender. **» *"■ '
The assessed valuation of the transit
company, as raised by the state board of

them liable to pay a personal assessment
of $43,151.19. Messrs. Calderwood and
Crosby also called on the county treas
urers of Hennepin and AVashington coun
ties, making' similar tenders, and at both
places their tenders were refused.
A number of other corporations, whose
assessments have been raised, also made
similar.tenders to Mr. Metzdorf, but he
refused them in each case. As a result
of it being the last day to pay the per
sonal taxes without the penalty, Mr.
Metzdorf received almost 1,000 letters

ASSEMBLYMAN DIX DECIDES NOT
TO TENDER HIS RESIGNA
-'. .?V77; " ' TION '
HIS CANDIDATE TURNED DOWN
Deadlock Ensues at the Special Ses
sion, and Alli Offers of Com-
promise Are Re
jected.
.v George F. Dlx Is still assemblyman
from the Sixth ward, and is likely to
remain such until the end of his term.
It had been supposed all along that ha
would tender his resignation yesterday,
but when, at the special meeting he had
called to elect his successor, he saw
that his choice for the place, Mr. R. L.
Robblns, could not be elected, his In
tentions underwent a change, and he
decided to hold on to the offlce himself.
Asked about the matter later, Mr. Dix
said he would not resign.
This decision of Mr. Dlx to hold both
the office of assemblyman and that of
clerk of tho municipal court is likely
to make trouble. It is understood, in"
fact, that a committee from the Repub
lican organization has already, held sev
eral meetings relative to the commence
ment of a test case which would, if de
cided adversely to Mr. Dix, prevent
him from holding the position of clerk
of the municipal court.
! City Attorney Markham has rendered
an opinion that the office of clerk of the
municipal court is not an office within
the- meaning of chapter 131 of the Laws of
1897, and of the city charter/which ex
pressly provide "that it shall be unlaw
ful for any assemblyman, etc., to hold
any -other - office during the term for
which he was elected or appointed," and
the corporation, attorney cites the case of
the State of Minnesota ex rel., Hagestad
vs. Sullivan, 67 Minnesota reports, page
379. This case, however, was decided
before the passage of the law above re- I
f erred to,. and, it is claimed, was decided
or. other grounds than the present case
would involve, as that case related to
the establishment of municipal courts in
cities, and not to the office of the clerk
of the court, and various lawyers who
have been consulted give different opin
ions on the subject. Mr. Dix has had _
bill introduced into the present legisla
ture to remedy this law, but that, it is
claimed, would not help the matter
new.
PRU»DEN BROUGHT OUT.
Up to yesterday no signs of a deadlock
were apparent, but when the time for
the meeting came around a strong candi
date in the person of A. K. Pruden was
brought out by. his friends, and it did
not take long for Mr. Dix to realize that
his candidate, Mr. Robbins, could not be
elected. The vote at that time stood 4
to 4,, and the next hour was consumed
by the Robbins forces In trying to effect
some kind of a combination whereby
they could elect their man, but to no
avail. After all other things had failed,
and it became more certain that the
deadlock was there to stay, the Robbins
forces offered to compromise by electing
Vice President C. J. Nelson to the pres
idency, but this offer was also declined. •
Finally, at 3 o'clock, President Dlx called
the meeting to order, but there were no
signs of any resignation from that gen
tleman, and it did not take the opposing
side long to see what Mr. Dix Intended
to do. ' 7:v7;77
Wednesday noon five of the assembly
men met in the back room of the office
of Assemblyman Warner and fixed up the
slate, which included the election of R.
L. Robbins to succeed Dix and F. G.
Warner to succeed President Dix, but
this star chamber combination was nip
ped in the bud and Mr. Pruden brought
out as a candidate with the above result.
There appeared to be "no opposition to
Mr. : Robbins personally, but his oppon
ents "contend that he has never taken
any part in politics or been associated
with the workers of the party, and Mr.
Dix did not consult the wishes of the
precinct committeemen and party lead
ers of the ward, but turned down all
the candidates and insisted upon foisting
a new man for his successor. The bone
of contention was exceedingly strong
also relative to the presidency of the
•assembly, as one-half the members de
sired to elevate Vice President Nelson,
but the slate was to put in Mr. Warner.
» Mr. Pruden does not reside in the
Sixth ward, but his supporters agree
that he has his business interests there,
is identified with the manufacturing in
terests of the ward, has long been a
prominent resident of the city and an
active Republican, has served two terms
as president of the Commercial club, is
eminently qualified, for- the position and
takes an active Interest in the develop
ment of the city and the west side in
particular. ." .. . "7.-W ■
Ex-Alderman Bell and many support
ers were present at the meeting as in
terested spectators. - ; -
The assembly has passed a preliminary
order for the paving 1 of West Seventh
street,. from - Ramsey to Tuscorora
streets. It was accompanied with a re
solution appropriating $6,500 from the
general fund, to be used for the paving
of the intersections.
Mr. Dix took the oath of office with
the city clerk yesterday, and will today
enter upon his duties as clerk of the
municipal court, vice Thomas Conroy
resigned. Mr. Conroy turned the office
over to Mr. Dix late yesterday after
noon, and will from this on pursue the
insurance business. _

Considered Minor Claim*.
The committee on claims of the board
of aldermen held a short session and con
sidered a number, of minor claims. The
claim of George J. Grant for $50 for ex
amining the Cook barn was considered,
and the committee decided to try to com
promise for $25, as they think the bill is
excessive. •'.'■'♦:

JURORS IN HAMILTOiN CASE TELL
(ll.MJi:il\Kl) MAN THBY
ARE SORRY
DOUBT WHETHER HE IS GUILTY
All the Prisoner's Visitors Are Care
ful to Admonish the Jailor
. Not to Say .They
Called.
Members of the Jury that convicted
Frank Hamilton of manslaughter con
tinue to call upon the condemned man
and, In addition to expressing their sym
pathy, give him to understand that they
are still in doubt as to his guilt. One
of the jurors is reported to have said
that if the jury had. been polled in the
courtroom at least one man would have
backed down and refused to stand for
conviction.: '.'■'.'• ~
"And- that man wasn't Anderson or
Gibson, either," was the added informa
tion. . . „.7 '■ - 7
Naturally, this information does not
have the effect of reassuring the young
man who is now facing the prospect of
seven years in prison, and. presumably,
the information they : vouchsafe does
little more to raise them In his regard
than it will in that of the public at
large.
That the jurors who come to condole
with their victim are not particularly
anxious to have the fact bruited to the
world at large is demonstrated by the
admonition they. invariably give the
jailer not to. make their names public.
Verily, there is nothing new under the
sunexcept a. Minneapolis juror.
POWERS MUST EXPLAIN.

Aid. Fred Powers will return from
Dcs Moines this morning, and the grand
jury will meet at the same time. The
Eighth'ward alderman, according to tel
egraphic, reports from the lowa capital,
has been telling stories to the effect that
the brick companies which furnished the
material for certain paving last year
wei-e "held up" for at. least a dollar a
thousand. He vaguely mentions "some
aldermen and a certain city official."
Beyond this he vouchsafes no Informa
tion. V
When the alderman arrives he will be
met by a delegation from the city coun
cil—if not a grand jury, subpoena
invited to explain . himself at .greater
length.
In the first place, the city did not buy
brick by the thousand last year. It
contracted for brick at the rate of 99%
cents a square yard; ■- measured after they
were laid in the street. The "city- en
gineer laid the brick by day labor, 'and
the cost varied . from -$1.79 a yard on
