Because Wardner.Would Not , Pay
Losses, William* Started in Witu
■■*Knife and inflicted Several
Iffly Wounds.
As. the result of a bar-room fight which
took place at the Merchants' hotel, shoitly
>>< fore 8 o'clock last evening, William
Wardner, of Wardner, Col., is lodged a_t
central police station, suffering from
three knife wounds and charged with
assault and battery. With him am C. 11.
Smith and Nick, alias "Kid" WHli.ima.
who are also charged with assault and
Early last evening Wardner, Smith
and Williams started a "crap" game at
the hotel bar. After playing for a time
the stakes fattened with the excitement
of the occasion, and to the onlookers it
seemed that Wardner and Smith v.ore
cheating Williams. At any rate trio let
ter was losing money rapidly and was in
a fair way toward getting "broke." De
spite the fact that Williams Busyocted
crooked playing he kept on and to
heighten the pleasure of the occasion the
three- were drinking considerable nine.
Finally Williams agreed to throw for a
bottle of wine and $5 against Wardner,
and in several throws won. Wardner be
came incensed and refused to pay. With
out saying a word Williams threw the
dice box into Wardner's face and a f.ght
was instantly inaugurated.
Wardner is much taller and heavier
than the "Kid" and did not hesitate to
mix, but before he had pulled himself to
gether his small antagonist flashed a
knife and started in to carve. With con
siderable force he lunged the knife into
Wardner's left shoulder and side, but
owing to the smallness of the blade did
not inflict serious wounds A third flour
ish caught Wardner's up-rateed left hand,
and inflicted a bad gash across the palm
from thumb to little tinker.
In the meantime tne others in the bar
room and a number of guests, who were
lounging in the corridors, were attracted
to the scene but all seemed afraid to in
terfere and were perfectly willing to pass
the job of peace-miking along- to the
bartender, but he preferred his side of
the bar to any other at that particular
moment and tho tight went on. The com
batants worked from tne bar-room out
into the pool room nnd here the affray
was finally stopped. The crowd was ang
ered with the 'Kid' Ci«r his display of
cowardice nnd was very excited. What
might nave happened to him was nipped
in the bud by the appearance of Patrol
man Williams. After a little fight with
the "Kid," in which the latter threat
ened to reroove the policeman's heart
with his gory knife, the excitement sub
sided and Williams was rlaced up. ler ar
In the meantime Wardner had been
hurried into a carriage and taken to a
physician, where his wounds were dress
ed. He, with Smith, then returned to the
hotel, and was placed under arrest by
Patrolman Barney Smith. C. H. Smith
gave himself up.
Wardner is a circus man, and Smrth a
bookmaker. Both have an easy way of
getting money, and are well known all
over the country. Smith has no heme
in particular. Williams spends a great
deal of time in St. Paul, but is also on
the road a part of the time. He seems
to have no particular occupation.
The charge against Williams will prob
ably be changed to assault with a danger
ous weapon, but Wardner says that he
will not prosecute. All three were suffer
ing from effects of too much liquor when
Williams was released later on ?100

Health Commissioner Ohage and inform

city on a train he overheard two men
talking about some blankets and pillows
they had stolen from a pest house in the
northern part of the state. He offered to
locate the men and recover the articles,
but as he wanted the stum agreed upon.
J5, in advance, the doctor came to the
conclusion that he was a "grafter" anJ
refused to deal with him.
Later, however,, he received informa
tion that the man's story was true and
late last night he learned that the stolen
articles had been sold to Charles Al
brecht. a runner for the Globe hotel,
who lives at Sixth and John streets. The
doctor went to the man's house, paid
him $3 for six blankets and two pillow*
and burned them n the back yard.

Moving; Picture* of Twin Cities May
. Be Exhibited at Some Prom
inent Point in Exposi
tion Grounds.
Now that there Is nothing more to hope
for from the legislature the Minnesota
commissioners to the Pan-American ex
position at Buffalo are considering just
how it will be possible for them to make
the best showing with the limited ap
propriation that was given them. It is
understood by all the commissioners that
a poor display will be worse than none at
all, and while they cannot, with the lim
ited means at their command, possibly
hope to make a complete exhibit of the
marvelous resources of the state, they
will endeavor to so arrange matters that
they will be able to wake up the resi
dents of the effete East to the fact that i
Minnesota is the possessor of riches, that I
are practically inexhaustible and that it
offers a field for young and ambitious
men that cannot be duplicated in any
other section of the country.
If the state could have had a building
of its own on the grounds, where its
products could have been exhibited under
one roof, the work of the commissioners
would have been greatly simplilied, anJ
the exhibit as a whole would have re
flected, as far as any exhibition can do,
the greatness and wealth of the state.
Failing to secure this, they have be<.n
obliged to arrange for space wherever
it could be had, but this has been chosen
to good advantage, and it is hoped to
make the display at the different places
fairly representative of the different in
dustries that are carried on in the state.
As H. P. Hall put it yesterday: "To vi
who know what Minnesota is capable cf,
the showing we will make will look like
a nine spot; but those who- are ignorant j
of our vast and varied resources, it will |
be a revelation that will open their eyes j
with wonder and give them something
to talk about for months to come."
Plan 9 for the exhibit have not been
fully wrought out as yet, but enough has
been done to warrant the assurance that
there will be a very fair display.
The departments of horticulture and ag
riculture will be as complete as it is pos
sible to make them, and they will ba
among the best on the grounds. The
mineral wealth of the state will be rep
resented, and its progress in the arts of
peace during the sfaort period that ha 3
elapsed since it was first entered by
white settlers will be adequately shown.
It was hoped by the commissioners that !
they would be able to exhibit a model of j
the new state capitol, but there are two j
difficulties in the way of doing so that I
seem insuperable at present. In the first
place, it would not be possible to have it I
constructed before July 1. This would. I
perhaps, be soon enough, since it is net I
likely that the rush of visitors will begin j
until about that time. The other is that
the commissioners do not feel that they
will be justified in taking the cost of the
model from their already too small ap
propriation, and the capitol commission
ers do not feel that they have any right
to pay for it out of their funds.
About the only way in which this mat
ter can be arranged would be for the
necessary cost to be raised by a popular
subscription. As this is a maitlter in
which the whple state is interested. It Is
believed that it would be comparatively j
easy to do this, but the commissioners
are buried with work and there seems to
be no one else who has the time neces
sary to devote to furthering the project. I
For this reason, that feature will prob
ably have to be abandoned. This is the
more to be deplored, as Minnesota will
naturally be represented at the St. Louis
exposition two years hence, and the \
model could be used at both iDlaces. A3 j
a means of showing the advancement
that has beta made in the state, it would
be an object lesson that would more than
repay the cost, even if it is looked at as
a purely business proposition.
Anotner suggestion tliat Is now being
riven consideration is that Dr. Lubin, of j
Philadelphia, be engaged to take a series j
| of moving pictures that shall be exhibit
i ed nightly fcora some central position on
j the grounds. It is proposed that a trip
I be taken over the street car lines of the
i two cities, and the moslt conspicuous ob
jects be photographed. This would in
clude Hennepin avenue in Minneapolis, to
Lake Harriet, to Minnenaha Falls, to
Lake C'omo, through the flour milling dis
trict in Minneapolis, up Nicollet avenue.
Summit avenue in St. Paul, Font Snell
ing, Indian Mounds, to Stillwater along
the route of the electric line, by the state
university, and such other objects as thu
commissioners deem berft adapted to set
off the advantages of the Twin Cities,
either as summer resorts or places ot
residence. These pictures could be op.
crated at night from some point where
they could be seen by thousands of peo
ple and they would speak more eloquent
, lythan pages of printed matter.
If an idea, which has been suggested
! by Gov. Van Sant, is carted out, Minn*
| sota will henceforth be known as "The
I Dread and Butter State" of the Union
j He has notified the commissioners that
j it would be a clever thing to have a
I pamphlet prepared Showing the resources
j of the state, its fertility and wealth, and
. to have it headed with the words, "Bread
| and Butter State." The title has struoß.
| the commissioners as being particularly
j appropriate and they will follow out fas
| suggestion. Artists in the state will
\ probably be given a chance to compete
for the cover design for a prize bait of

NEW YORK, April 12.—The trouble
between the Central Railway of New-
Jersey, and its employc-s is still far from
a settlement. Representatives of the
employers and employes held two length/
.sessions in Jersey City today, but tonight
the conferees confessed that no material
progress towards a settlement had been
made. Some minor points were conceded
by the representatives of both sides, but
on the principal points of differences
neither side would make concessions.
Another conference will be held tomor
row, but it is not expected an agreement
will be made, and the conference will be
continued into next week.

H. W. Qhilda, . wnilam J. Hahn and
Gideon {3, lyes, the three .".tax commit
sioners recently * appointed '< by the ' legis
lature, have (returned from their trip to
the East and * are enthusiastic over the
■work accomplished. Mr. Chllds was seen
at his hdnie last night and he spoke rela
tive to fheVip as follows: ;. , : „
! ".The ,|ienibers of (the tax ; commission
visited Chicago, > Indianapolis, Lansing:,
Columbus, Albany, Boston and ... Phila
delphia, and .We were impressed with the
fact that ' the -taxation 'of personal
property is everywhere in a most urn'
satisfactory state. In only one stalte was
i satisfaction with existing laws expressed
I and that exception was . in the ; sate ol
I Indiana. In that stalte a f tax commission
has existed for several years ' and; we
I were led to believe that its work had re.
| suited; in the most su ,-cssful ~ efforts. at
the taxation of persona.! property accom
plished in any of the states visited.
Their success may be -largely attributed
to the thoroughness with which the as
sessment of personal property is effected.
_ "Michigan has made great advances In
the past few years . and has by * a most
thorough enforcement of law, brought
hundreds of millions of dollars of per
sonal property. to light, and subjected It
to taxation. That state has a tax com
mission upon: which has been conferred
great powers in the matter of searching
for evidences ' of personal ; property.
"In Chicago a revolution In the matter
of the taxation of personal property has
I been effected * during the past two or
i three years. : A body known as a board
I of- review" exists there, which has large
i powers in the matter of the Investigation
of matters of ?■ taxation and has accom
plished surprising results. For instance,
we were . Informed by the chairman of
the board that a few years since a cer
tain tax payer -of Chicago : was paying
a . tax of 5128 a . year. _ He paid the asses
sor $2,000 a. year in order to be permitted
to pay that - tax. ; Since the board of re
view was created he is now paying $l>,Uofr
a year taxes, and pays it cheerfully, be
cause he feels that other taxpayers p.re
paying their just proportion. '-,-.
"Another ciitizen was paying a tax
upon an assessment of about 560,000 a
I year. His Tagent called upon the board
! and within fifteen minutes it was ar
| ranged that the tax payer should be as
| sessed upwards of . $5,000,000. Many other
! instances were given us as illustrative
of the work ef the board of -review in
that cityls^?9i"-v ■ .
"It . was- conceded in Albany that the
subject of taxation in New York Is most
I unsatisfactory - and that, not less than 3
per cent of Uie . personal property in that
state was oiT/jthe tax lists. A tax com
mission exists?, ithere and. is accomplishing
a great deal, although it is greatly ham
pered by wantl of power. Senator Raines,
of that state, has introduced a bill pro
viding for a ( £^vof 1-5 of 1 per cent on
all negotiable ii^lruments, and that such
instrumrats shall . not ; be enforcable
against debtors unless such tax has been
paid. It is estimated that • the enforce
ment .of ' such a* law would result in fif- :
teen millions *of revenue to the state:
. Massachusetts • is securing s the taxation
! of only a low percentage of the personal
property of the state. Many of the laws
enforced • in .Massachusetts ate ancient.
The executive 'officers of the state have
long sought" to rrsecure a more efficient
system, but the , great influence of the
wealthy classes', of the state has success
fully foiled them in nearly all of their
attempts to reform. They are more sue- i
j cessful in Massachusetts under 1 existing !
| laws than they ; would " be 'if the state
were not so limited in area. '
In Pennsylvania all merchants, Jobbers
and manufacturers are wholly exempt
from taxation as to their stock in trade..
They raise large revenues from fran
chises and" corporations, and are not lim
ited by such constitutional provisions as
I exist In the constitution of this state,
so that they have greater freedom than
I we in providing for exemptions and in
selecting the' subjects of taxation. The
tax commission in Philadelphia complain
ed of its want of power, and. was depend
ent almost wholly upon the industry of
assessing officers :in subjecting personal
property to taxation. ~ln Pennsylvania,
j as well as In : Massachusetts, the law pre
scribes a penalty of : . 50 per cent in all
cases where a taxpayer fails to list ; his i
property. We were given a few instances
! illustrative, of the 'method pursued by the :
assessors In reaching the proper assess
ment lof persons by guess work. Two
men were each - assessed $1,G00,C00. Both
paid their tax and the penalty of 50 j;er
cent without complaint. The following
year the assessment of each was doubled
and each paid his tax and penalty as be
fore^. This course was pursued for sev
eral years, until at last one of them had
been assessed at $10,000;000. He com
plained of this, saying that his property
was not worthy more than $9,000,000, and
his property was-thereafter assessed at
j $9,000,000. The other made no complaint
1 until his ; assessment had reached $15,t0),
--! 000. These cases simply Illustrate the
course which is' pursued where the as
sessment officers have no means of - as
certaining the value *of the property of
the taxpayer." - - - ■ v .

ed on the : trip East. ' ' -

Col. F. D. Powell Administers the

sive Ritual of Wlnne

When Ne-gay-wod-Chay (Going Away)
returns to his people today they will rec
ognize him as a medicine chief, succes
sor to John Thunder, who for sixty odd
years labored in his work of alleviating
the ills of the Winnebago Nation of In
Yesterday White Beaver (Col. F. D.'
Powell), the Great Medicine Chief of the
Winnebago tribe, conferred the title upon
him, and henceforth he will be neccgniz
ed by no other. The ceremony was per
formed in the private office of Dr. Poy'
ell, in the Union block, and to the few
permitted to witness the conferring cf
the honor it was quite mystifying.
To the onlookers the ritual was
very much Greek, yet Going Away seem
ed to be greatly impressed with the im
portance of the oath he was taktnk and
answered every question with a guttural
"Yes, yes."
For the benefit of Going Away, who is
not a finished English scholar, the oath
was read to him in the Indian language,
in which Col. Powell is quite proficient,
and to every sentence he gave an ac
quiescent "Yes." At the conclusion of
the reading. Going Away, very much ex
cited by the ordeal which he had under
gone, tremblingly subscribed his name
to the paper tendered him by his chief,
the spectators present acting as wit
The oath administered to him, and
with which he pledged compliance under
penalty of dismissal from the tribe, re
quired that he treat only diseases with
which he is acquainted, that he refuse to
allow the use-of medicine of which he
has no knowledge, and that his time be
constantly employed in the care of his
people. He was enjoined never to divulge
what he had seen at the great councils,
and to protect his people and his chief
as he would his own life. As a mark of
his authority he was given an engrossed
certificate, framed, it bearing the name
of Col. Powell, and his Indian name as
Great Medicine Chief.
At the conclusion of the ceremony Go
ing Away disappeared in an adjoining
room clutching in his tand the paper
that gave him honor and title among his
people. To him it was an event worthy
the iiving of a lifetime, and he was duly
impressed with the mission that he was
about to start on.
Going Away, whose tepee is located
near La Crosse, Wis., has been in St.
Paul lor the past three days, and during
that time he has teen fasting and under
going the trials prescribed by the Win
rebago Indian ritual. A typical Indian
and fat to the extent of corpulence, he
did not look as if he had abstained from
food, but Col. Powell asserted thrit he
had not taken a mouthful of food during
the prescribed period. He can speak
English fairly well, and readily answers
such questions as were put to him. He
says he is a big medicine man now, and
is going to cure his peop<? that are sick.
"I know John Thunder," he said, "he
good man. very old. I take his place."
Going Away leaves for Wisconsin to
day, and as the news of his appointment
has already j-receded him, he will be re
ceived with great honor. With warm
weather will come the migration of the
several settlements, each of which trav
els; from place to place, and spends the
summer fishing, trapping, and occasion
ally picking up an odd dollar by trading
horses. In July the great council will
be held at Black River Falls, and here
the warriors and chiefs will gather trom
far and near to participate in the exer
cises that are annually held. At this tinia
the appointment of Going Away as a
medicme chief -will be confirmed.
