PUBLIC EXAMINER "WILL SUBMIT
HIS REPORT TO THAT
BODY
1 TAX REFUNDMENT MATTERS
! Gen. Pope Has Practically Finished
I * His Investigations of County Au
ditor Johnson's Otfice and
Abatement Records.
"The fact is," said Public Examiner
I Pope, referring to his investigation of
' the affairs in the county auditor's of-
I fice last night, "we have been sifting
j a number of matters that have been
I called to our attention,'" and I expect to
! be able to submit a report to the grand
jury which meets Tuesday."
The above remark was Drought out
: when Gen. Pope was shown certain state
i ments to the effect that the New Brighton
! Land company jis indebted to Ramsey
; county to the extent of $2,950.33, being
i due on the sale cf certain property for
back taxes, penalty and interest. ■ Ac
cording to the records, the sale of the
i property in question, which had reverted
to the state and which was bid, in by
the New Brighton company, was never
approved by the state auditor. The abate
ment of taxes amounted to $96i.23 ( having
in some manner been secured • without
?ven the knowledge of the board of coun
ty commissioners. The only 'thing- in
evidence- is the • instrument itself, which
shows that a settlement was made" un
der the administration of ex-County Au
ditor Sullivan, on the terms made'b'y
the. New Brighton ' company,. and ..suit
may be commenced by the state against
Mr. Sullivan and his bondsmen to col
lect the amount.due the..county..
When seen last night, Public Examiner
Pope was reticent as to the .investigation,
but he admitted that this and other
transactions, looking equally as bad, had
been the subject of official scrutiny. As
to the New Brighton deal, he said it
had not bee ascertained whether the
money had been paid into the treasury
or not, and that this phase of the inves
tigation would be reached Monday. Un
t: 1 then he did not care to talk for publi
cation.
LICENSES _ARE_ REVOKED
MUTUAL RESERVE EUKD AND NA
TIONAL ACCIDENT BARRED.
Deputy Insurance Commissioner Light
bourn received a letter yesterday from
Commissioner Dearth offic ally announcing
the revocation of the license of the Mu
tual Iteserve Fund Life Association of
New York to do business in this state.
Th : s action practically dates from
May SI, when the officers of the com
pany refused to submit to the examina
tion of the books and records of their
office, as was stated in the Globe at
that time. This company is the largest
of Its kind in the world, having «a mem
bership of 81.076, of which 871 are In
Minnesota. The -premiums rece'ved in
this state last year amounted t0~550,616.40.
The National. Accident Society of New
York has also refused to submit to an
examination, and its license has also
been revoked. This latter company is,
however, comparatively a small concern,
and its Minnesota business is light.

SMALL MARBLE URN CONTAINS ALL
THAT IS MORTAL OF MRS.
MABEL "WALKER
IT WAS A PATHETIC SCENE
Ceremony Was "Witnessed by the
Aggrieved Husband, and Mother
of Deceasedßev. C. D. An
drews Officiated.
All that is mortal of Mrs. Mabel "Wal
ker, a beautiful young woman, twenty
one years of age, who committed suicide
at Lincoln, Neb., last Wednesday by
drinking wood alcohol and cocaine, re
pose in a small ' marble urn at Forest
cemetery.
In the presence of her mother, who
came from Taeoma to implant the kiss
of motherly affection before the remains
were consigned to the grave and the
husband, who stood by with a heart rent
with anguish, all but the memory of her
rash act was blotted out under the effects
of cleansing fire.
The funeral services over the remains
of the youthful wife took place at Dam
pier's undertaking rooms yesterday after
noon, the services being read by Rev.
C. D. Andrews, .of Christ church, while
the Metropolitan quartette sang. The
husband and the mother only were the
mourners, and as the quartette softly
sang, the one gave forth her anguish
in sobs, while the other bore his grief in
silence and with bowed head. Following
the services the remains' were taken to
Forest cemetery and cremated.
According to the dispatches Mrs. "Wal
ker's death, which occurred at Lincoln,
Neb., was due to wood alcohol and co
caine taken with suicidal intent. Found
with her was J. Albert Brink, a traveling
salesman from Milwaukee, also suffering
from the effects of a- similar dose. The
woman succumbed and the man lived,
and from all accounts will fully recover.
According to his story, the woman chal
lenged him to end their lives together,
and he consented.
Walker, the husband, is from Duluth,
and it is understood is well connected.
His wife was a daughter of N. D. Root,
a former superintendent of the Northern
Pacific road. She had been a resident of
St. Paul, and at the time of her death had
been married three years. There are
no ch'ldren.
The husband does not believe the story
given out by Brink and says his wife end
ed her life while in a fit of mental aber
ration. ■'•;/.v. .;

MAYOR IS NOT OFFICIOUS
RELIEVES SATURDAY HALF HOLI
DAY 'IS A GOOD DEPARTURE.
Because of the fact that many of the
city officials at the city hall close their
offices of^a Saturday, afternoon. Mayor
Smith has been credited with a desire to
compel their attendance upon their offi
cial duties, but .this Mayor Smith says
is a mistake.
"Some one," said Mayor Smith yester
day," is persistently attempting to"bring "
me. in conflict with the officials in this
building. The half-holiday idea on Sat
urday is a very good thing, and 1 wish
all could enjoy it. What I do think,
however, and I have not been backward
in saying it, is that all the offices sauui.j.
be kept open during the regular business
hours, one man being letained each' Sa
turday to answer inquiries and am other
business that may come in. The ildiefeife
in the city hall are not answerable" to
me for. their actions in this matter, and
I do not wish to exercise any author! ■ y.
As far as my office is concerned, some
one will always be found on duty until
the regular closing office hours.
• Of the city officials in the building.
Comptroller McCardy is the only one so
far to put into effect the rule of closing
his office on Saturday afternoon. The
others keep one man on duty, of those
employed, each taking his turn at re
maining on Saturday afternoon.
There is no statutory act that de
mands the offices to be kept open, and
as a way out of the difficulty an agree
ment may be reached between all the
officials by which all the offices will be
closed tight.
STOPS THE TEAM.
Patrolman Charles Banker Performs
a Courageous Act.
Patrolman Charles Banker, a member
of the day squad, who is stationed at
Fourth and Minnesota streets, made an
excellent and daring stop of a runaway
team at noon yesterday.
A team belonging to' F. M. Barret, of
North St. Paul, ran away from an alley
in the rear of Fourth and Jackson
streets. They tore up Fourth street, and
several times came dangerously near
other vehicles which were occupied. The
plucky patrolman ran toward them, and,
grabbing the bridles, was dragged forty
feet, just stopping the frightened horses
in front of a carriage in which were sev
eral children. The crowd that had gath
ered sent up three cheers for the exhibi
tion of courage, and a collection was
taken up to help Banker replace his new
d:ess uniform that "had been sadly dam
aged in the mix-up. Both of Banker's
legs were badly scraped.

COMPANIONS NARROW ESCAPE
Accident Is the Culmination of Long:
Train of Adversities 'i Which "
Have Almost Wrecked -
Bereaved. Wife.
Without a moment's warning the life
of M. E. Jacobson, a resident of Cottage
Wood, was dashed out yesterday morn
ing .while he was working on a 1 large
dredging boat af'-'Saiilsberg point, near
Minneapolis. The mammoth derrick, i
composed almost entirely of iron, with .j
which the men were working, fell with ]
a tremendous crash, and when the ex- j
cited boatmen regained their senses, they
discovered the lifeless form of Jacob- |
son pinned under the gigantic structure. i
With Jacobson was a . man named !
Frank Woodruff, who had been working !
"with him on the boat. The derrick fell !
only a few feet from ,where Woodruff !
was. standing, and his escape from th« !
same untimely fate is still a wonder to j
those who were near the scene. j
- It was. somewhat difficult to account I
for the failing of the derrick. 'I'm- only I
apparent fault in the structure seemed i
to be that one bolt had given way. This, 1
perhaps, let the whole derrick down.
Jacobson did not murmur after he was I
struck by the missive machine. \ He was j
killed instantly. Both his neck ivnd back I
were broken and he was otherwise badly 1
bruised. The deceased was forty-three j
years of age and leaves a wife and two
children. His sudden death came with ;
such terrific force -to his wife that hopes ;
of restoring her to her ' normal condition j
mentally are almost despaired of. This, ,
with the terrible train of misfortune '
which has come to her and her family j
during the past five years, has, it is I
feared, completely wrecked her mmd. .
During the last five years each Mr. !
and Mrs. Jacobson has had a brother
drowned in tile river; their thiec-yeir
old child was fburiedJ in a watery grave 1
three years ago; some months ago, white I
at work, Jacobson,. the deceased man, [
lost three of his fingers, and as a bitter I
climax, the house of the family was de- j
stroyed by fire last winter.
The coroner^ decided upon viewing tile
body that an inquest was not necessary.
Capt. Johnson, commanding the boat
upon which Jacobson was at work, only
had his men, insured on June 2. Jacob
son carried :; some ~ insurance -of his
own in a- fraternal organization.

[ BREAD AND. BUTTER STATE. l;
.That Is the Name a New. Booklet
. £„; Applies to Minnesota. ■
"Minnesota, the Bread and Butter
State," is the title of a booklet issued by
the Minnesota board of managers for
the Pan-American exposition. It gives
a brief sketch of the progress of the state
■withim trie past half-century, a review
of its resources and a glance at the
promises for the'future. In dealing with
the historical aspect, it shows the rapid
ity with which civilization has conquered
the forest and prairies of the state.. It
speaks of the abundant present, pointing
to the great agricultural, manufacturing
and mining resources of the btate. Con
siderable space is given to tne future,
dealing especially with the natural re
sources of the undeveloped north, with
its mines, forest and grazing lands and
unreclaimed swamp lands. The several
counties of the state are taken up in
alphabetical order ; under the heading,
"The Counties and What They Offer to,
the Settler." Under this head the pop
ulation, physical features and such other
information as would interest one who
is looking for a location are treated.
Space is also given to each of the im
portant industries of the state, as wheat
raising, stock raising, lumbering, mining,
etc.
The climate Is dealt with, as are also
the summer • resorts and manufacturing
interests. -
The book accomplishes what it states
as its object: "To give in a cursory way
information which may incite further
investigation on the part of those who
are on the lookout for . opportunities in
agriculture, manufacturing and com
merce."
