THE ST. PAUL GLOBE, TUESDAT, AUGUST 20, 1901.
VAN SANT HAS ACTED
APPOINTS COMMISSION TO IWES
TIGATE CHARGES AGAINST
G. B. WHITEHOH.NE
NAMES NOT MADE PUBLIC
CumniiKMiouera Have Xot Yet Sig
nified Their Acceptance t«» tbe
Governor—Kane to
Present (']i:trK't>s.
As was announced in the Globe of
Sunday morning, Gov. Van Sant, upon hi*
return to the city yesterday, selected a
commission to investigate the charges
against George B. Whitehorne as county
commissioner, with a view to removing
him from office.
, thaced. Tllfoaofanoi. bm rfdwlyupal
County Attorney T. R. Kane held a
long* conference yesterday morning with
the governor in regard to this matter and
yesterday afternoon the governor said
to the Globe that two commissioners
had been selected, but as he had not yet
received word from them as to whether
they could serve, he would not at that
time announce their names. He expects,
however, to hear from, them early today
and there will then be no further reason
for secrecy.
The charges against Whitehorne before
the governor were tiled by County At
torney Kane, who will present, the evi
dence before the commission on behalf
of the county; and the commission will
also have the benefit of the 1. gal advice
of Attorney General Douglas. The
charges allege malfeasance and non
f< a a nee in office, it being specifically set
forth under the former head that the ac
cused falsified the records of the county
to which as a county commissioner, he
had unrestrained access, and marked as
paid certain receipts for taxts which had
in fact not been paid. A.s non-feasance
it is related that Whitehorne has been
absent from twelve meetings of the board
of equalization and one meeting of the
eourity commissioners, in the line of in
vestigation the commission will have un
r< siricted power to summon witnesses
and call for records and papers bearing
vi nil the question. Its report will be
made to the governor, who <fune has
power to act in matters of this kind.
PARK BOARD BUYS LAND
esi,ah(;emb\t at smjian moinds
HAS COST ijWI.OOO
Twelve TJiouxstiid Dollars More In
Xeces*ary, ami Condemnation
Proceedlnica Will He "';• i
Reported To.
So far the park board has relinquished
control of a something In excess of $31,000
in purchasing land for the enlargement of
Indian Mounds park, but more is neces»
sary and this the board will have to
obtain by condemnation proceedings.
!W ■ remainder, it is estimated, will
cost about $12,000 and this the board at
its meeting last n'ght, discussed to the
extent of deciding that the most feasible
plan would be to raise it by assessment.
'J ;.<■ territory to be covered will be ex
t< nded to Jackson street, making the as
sessment on ea-ch individual property
owner a mere trifle.
For the maintenance of the parks the
remainder of the year, the board has
available only about $20,000, and the
strictest economy will be necessary ii\
order to pull through. The members
spent some time in discussing the
finances and the funds that will be avail
able, but could lind no solution of the
difficulty beyond cutting down expenses.
President; "Wheelock said he was In re
ceipt of a letter suggesting that the pro
posed capitol park be named Seabury
park; in honor of the man that had given
it inception, but no action was taken on
the suggestion. Some of the members
are very much in doubt as to whether
the improvement will ever be eonsum-
RULING OJMNSURANCE
DBCSSXOM AUVKKSE TO CREDIT
COMPANIES.
Thf* state insurance department re
ceived an opinion yesterday from the at
torney general, the effect of which, brief
ly stated, is that credit insurance com
panies, so called, may not legally do busi
ness in this state.
The opinion relates that one of the pro
visions of the insurance laws of this state
authorizes companies "to guarantee the
fidelity of persons in positions of trust,
private or public, and to act as surety
on official bonds, and for the performance
of other obligations," and that it has
been suggested by the attorneys for one
of the credit insurance companies wish
ing a Minnesota license that the authori
ty to guarantee the fidelity of persons in
positions of trust, private or public, is
sufficient to embrace credjt insurance.
The attorney general, however, hold 3
to the contrary, and in explanation of
that position he says that the contract
in credit insurance is one providing for
indemnity for losses sustained by the
insured in sales of property on time or
credit, and that the insurer does not con
tract to make make good the failure,
debt or default of tlVe person dealing with
the insured. On the other hand, the
guarantee insurance authorized in the
portion of the law Quoted specifically in
demnities the insured against loss
through the defalcation of a third per
son, who is designated and becomes a
party to the contract.

A delegation from the White Bear Vil

or Messrs. Snyder, Gilbert, 1-onergan and
Markoe cajled on the board of county
commissioners-vps-terday and tried to in
terest that body hi a scheme-to replemish
th-e rapidly failing waters of their lake.
The scheme in brief is the draining of
about 1,000 acres of swamp land to the
north and west of the lake, the water
from which at present finds its way into
Lake Phalen. A drain-five or six feet be
low the level of the ground, they figured,
would do the work, the cost of which,
according to the county surveyor, would
not exceed $3,000.
-The--members or the delegation each
spoke at length on the preservation of
the lake, but they were given no en
couragement by the members: beyond a
promise to send the road and bridge com.
mittee out to examine the locality and
report to the board. -. .
• By.a resolution Introduced yesterday by
Commissioner- Webster,: the bondsmen of
ex-County Abstract Clerk Schulze will
either have to put his books in shape or
suffer the loss which the : county must
sustain by reason of their present condi
tion. - Mr. Webster - explained the ab
sence of many items- on the books,, and
on his recommendation, the county attor
ney was instructed to confer with j the
bondsmen and compel the corrections or
recover the cost necessary to make them.
. A .petition was received asking that <*
new school district to be known as Ko.

trict is .desired in order to shorten the
distance which a number of the children
of that locality have at present to.travel

committee will inquire into the request.

OWNERS WANT ASPHALT

GATIOX ,1V AITS OX BOARD :
Their Request "May Receive Favor
able ,Attention if v Signed
Petition. Is Sub
fi mitted.
Through the efforts of several of the
members of the council South Wabagba
has been saved from the general wreck
incident to the rescinding and rejection
of the.main paying orders which failed
'to comply with the council injunction, or
called for some material other than
brick, but even this one thoroughfare
now seems doomed to go the way of the
rest.
Yesterday a delegation of property
owners along- that street called on the
board of public works and asked that;
asphalt be subsi vi ,1 for brick as the
material for pavi- ;;. The demand seem
ed to be general, and the delegation was
instructed by the hoard to obtain a sign
ed petition, and it would receive the con
sideration desired.
Assemblyman Dix was mainly instru
mental In saving- the Hnal order, \vQiich
called for brick, bat he has been com
pelled to recognize the demand for as
phalt and says he will not stand in its
way. This will noCe'ssitate the creation
of a new order.
That for Lafayette avenue is
now the only order outstand
ing in which brick is specified,
and it is expected that a petition will
shortly be received asking for the sub
stitution of asphalt. This will delay the
work and preyem its completion until
next yoar. Bids, however, can be called
for this year.

a strong .smell of carbolic acid. [Je im
mediately cated his wife, and >>he sum
moned Dr. Richeson, who was on the
scene in a few moments; Dr. Markoe
was also called, but when the doctors ar
rived Dunlap was beyond all n
and died about 8:45. Dr. Richeson was of
tho opinion that the dead man had taken
an exceptionally large dose, as he oil d
quite suddenly. The son was summoned
and arrived just as the ol 1 man was
gasping his last, while the sons wife did
not arrive until after the eld.-: Dunlap
was dead.
The son stated to Coroner Miller that
he believes his father committed suicide,
while the former's wife is of the opinion
that he did not. The matter will be
thoroughly investigated by Coroner Mil
ler today.
It is hinted that the old man might
not have been entirely satisfied with life
at his son's homy, and that possfbly he
took this means eg ending the trouble.
SON AVAS DRLAYED.
A peculiar accident also occurred in
connection with this case. "When it be
came known that Mr. Dunlap was dying.
Miss May Xagel, living near by, who was
out driving, offered the services of her
horse for Mr. Tormey to ride over and
notify George W. Dunlap of his father's
condition. Mr. Dunlap got into the bugsy
with the other two coming back. Every
thing went well until the party had
r-eached a place about three blocks from
the Dunlap residence, when for some rea
son the horse became frightened and
tipped the rig over, throwing Mr. Tormey
and Miss Nagel out to the ground. The
frightened anim d dashed up tTi.- ■
with Dunlap still in the buggy, but it
was stopped after a run of about two
blocks. Miss Xagel is quite badly injur
ed, and was attended by Dr. Richeson.
