REFUSE TO GIVE PRICE PAID
Assertion Emphatically Made That,
the Books Will Have to Be Open
ed When the Next Leg
The determination of the state board
of control, to withhold the figures in con
nection with its immense purchases for
the state institutions from the public, and
its success so far regarding the one item
of fuel, is receiving anything but favor
able comemnt from those who made a
bid for the state's patronage.
In the majority'of purchases the pub
lic has been considerately furnished with
the names of the parties securing the
contracts and in some instances, the price
that the state will have to pay has been
given, but in purchasing . coal, all in
formation has been withheld, except to
let the public know that the contract has
At a gathering of coal men last night,
"shop talk" entered into the con
versation te the extent of free comment
on the purchases of the state board in
"I don't want to insinuate," remarked
one coal merchant, "but it's the coldest
df-al I ever entered into."
"Here is $100,000 to be spent in fuel and
even the bidders who took the trouble to
compete for the prize are balked in their
efforts to find out who got the contract.
If the state normal board hadn't kicked
the traces, I guess we would have been
guessing jret. What a snap the law under
which the board operates must be to a
crowd that would be the least inclined
to go astray."
"Well, I tried to find out." interrupted
a merchant, "but I had little success. I
thought I would bide my time and wait
until the bills came in. but I soon found
I was balked here, also, when I learned
the board had it in Its power to even
keep these from the public. The mod©
of procedure, I am told, will be simply
to make payment to some individual
member of the firm, credit him with a
gross siim of money and thus discourage
anyone with a desire to find out the price
Up to the meeting of the state normal
h'r-,-, rd the name of the successful coal
firm was locked in the breasts of a few,
but with the secession of that, body th«
secret leaked out, President Phelps, of
Duluth, taking the business methods of
the board of contr6l to task when he
ridiculed their action in letting tho con*
tract to the Northwestern Fuel company
to furnish the Duluth school with coal at
$3.85 a ton.
Mr. Phelps contended that the fuel
o'.uhl have been purchased for $3.51 from
another company, and his contention was
fully verified By the remarks which en
tered into the discussion at the gathering
of coal merchants last night.
"I think even a better rate than that
could have been secured for Duluth," re
marked one gentleman, and he was fully
corroborated by the others.
The act of secession on the part of the
board has received wide publicity through
out the state and comments have been
freely made on the action of the board in
refusing to make public its purchases of
coal, but so far the members have re
fused to depart from the course adopted.
Tnder the law which created them, they
are answerable only to the legislature,
that body alone having the right to de
mand an inspection of their books and
acts., but if comment is any criterion, the
next session will see an imperative de
mand for these same books.
The several big coal firms, angered at
their failure to know the status of their
bid, are behind the demand and say that
they will see that it is respected.

The state legal department furnished an

to the state auditor recently for about
$12,000, which it was alleged was paid

forty feet in length, was upturned, and
as Johnson did not realize the value of
his .find, he let the remains lie where
they have been buried for ages, and sev

holds that while the railroad company 1 3

JUGGLED WITH THE BOOKS
Attorney for National Bond and Se
curity cVmpany Finds Evi
dences of Fraud in
The theory or supposition that County
Commissioner George B. Whitehorne,
who is wanted on the charge of tamper
ing, with the books in the county audi
tor's office, had been doing Quite a busi
ness in his peculiar and sinuous line is
borne out by certain discoveries that have
been made within the past few days.
Recently William G. White, attorney
for the National Bond and Security com
pany, had occasion to look up some tax
records in connection with a piece of
property located in the village of White
Bear, when it was discovered that the
tax certificates against the property for
the years of IMJ2-3 had been redeemed
and marked paid on the books of the
auditor in the regular manner.
At the time the certificates were paid, a
bracket was drawn around the years
1592-3, and the word "raid" was written
in bold letters on the "side.
In pursuing his investigation. Aftorney
White found that the cerdfioite for the
taxes of ISM was also marked paid, and
as his clionts stCU hold the certifl
he was at a loss to know just how the
On close inspection, it was found that
the trick was cleverly turned, presumably
by Whitehorne, by simply extending the
bracket so as to include the
1594 with tho two preceding years, the
taxes of which were marked paid and
the word "do," or "ditto," was added.
The property in question is owned by
Mra. Hannah Getty, wife of one of the
nioneer residents of White Bear village.
and as it is understood that Whitehnrne
acted aa her agent, ihe supposition is
that he juggled the book, as in the other
transaction for which he is wanted.
As the National Bond and Security
company still retains the certificate for
the delinquent taxes of 1804, it is lik-ely
thit Mrs. Getty, In order to retain her
property, will h* called upon to pay over
aprain the taxes, which amount to about

his charges against County Commission

fuil advantage of the possibilities.
Speaking on this subject yesterday. Gen.
Pope said: ''Mi-. Kane should also have
charged Whitthorne with failure to prop
erly investigate applications for tax re
fundmenttf, in his capacity as member
of tax commUtee of the board of county
commissioners; This would not perhnps
be so very important as relating to

While the council has appr<
for a new bridge where the Omaha
trucks cross the White Boar road, City
Engineer Clauss< n has little idea that the
improvement will ever be made.
The crossing where the tracks meet at
present is simply a grade affair, ample
for the present small traffic, and, in
-sen's opinion, will be Sufficient for
some years to come. There are other
s more centrally located, he
that need bridging.
The plans were prepared on the as
sumption that the cost, §16,000, would be
borne by the Omnha road, but there is
some doubt as to whether the city could
compel the company to pay die amount.
it was intimated yesterday that the
bridge was to l,e built for the purpose of
furnishing the street railway company
trackage facilities over the While Bear
road, but as the company at present
owns a right of way in which it has in
vested considerable money, officials char
acterize the rumor as ridiculous.
In addition to this, the plans for the
bridge only provide a twenty-foot road
way, which for a double track would be
out of the question. It is little enough
for tains ana ordinary traffic.

Bears th a Tiis Kind You Have Always Bought
GERMS DO NO HARM
DR. RODERaiTJXD, OF APPLETftX,
WIS., HAS STARTLING THEORY
HAS SWALLOWED THE VIRUS
He Is' Willinsr to Prove That Mod
. em Medical Science Is Built
on False Prin
"Four great pillars upon which medical
science is j reared,' quarantine, vaccina
tion, contagion and the -germ theory, are
mere crumbling supports built of sand,
and I am willing to prove it," said Dr.
M. J. Rodermund, of Appleton, at the
Windsor yesterday afternoon.
The doctor is the man who created
some excitement at Appleton last winter
by refusing to : disinfect himself after
treating smallpox patients,' and daring
the town police to arrest him. At that
time he announced that smallpox was not
contagious, and ' only a few weeks ago
he put his belief • to a practical demon
stration by swallowing some pus which
he extracted with a knife from a pustule
on a diseased patient.
"Smallpox, In common with all other
diseases, is not communicable by touch
or what is known as infection. In this
respect the germ theory is wholly at sea,
said the doctor.
"I urn willing' to demonstrate before
any fair-minded body of physicians that
no disease ia communicable through the
medium of germs. I will in so doing
utilize none but recognized natural phy
sical and physiological laws. Under the
influence of vaccination 'a person Is for
a time far more susceptible to the dis
ease than he is normally. After he has
had time to recover he is perhaps no more
(susceptible than he was before bens
vaccinated. It is a thing for the advo
cates of vaccination to ponder over that
most of the ardent supporters of non
vaccination have had some of their rela
tives crippled or scarred for life as a
result of vaccination. Another thins
that, they might take time to think over
Is that in spite of ICO years of experi
mentation, during which time tens or
millions of people have been vaccinated,
compulsory vaccination laws are neces*
sary in every civilized community. Is i\
not strange that the American people
are so unobservant and so unintelligent
that they cannot accept this so-callp«l in
fallible specific against a dread i I
without it being forced upon them?
"The fact of the matter is that as snon
as a discovery is made which tends t;>
reduce a profitable source of revenue, the
whole profession jumps upon it with botu
feet. Anyone who announces a dsc ye. y
which will benefit humanity more
the profession is at once designat
brainless crank and a crazy fool.
"As to contagion, all i can say is that
if I am shown whore and how any given
disease originated, I can tell just how
that (listase is propagated.
"I may, before I leave the city, d. i:\\ r
a lecture before the medical profession
and a number of prominent citizens in
which I siiall outline my method for
eradicating epldem'c diseases. It is a dis
covery that has eluded the medical pro
fession for thousands of years., and is
at the same time one of the simplest
things in the world.
"I have, to n turn to smallpox, fre
quently exposed myself to infection, and
have exposed hundreds of my friends,
unknown to them. Indirectly, I nave ex
posed perhaps 50,000 persona to the dis
ease, and I have yet to learn of a single
case developing from it. At Menasha.,
Wis., a few weeks ago, I swallowed a
considerable quantity of smallpox virus.
"If present atmospheric conditions con
tinue until September, every person in
the United States may be vaccinated and
smallpox will continue to increase. 1
predicted the outbreak which is at pre.~~
cnt sweeping over the Northwest, and I
have predicted every outbreak wnich
has occurred in the last fifteen years.
THREE GREAT DISCOV!
The three principal discoveries for
which I claim credit, and which I /.ain
tain will live as long as the world itself
First—That no imparities can be taken
into the blood, through the lungs, from
the air breathed. The very opposite has
always been taught.
S cond—That no such thing as d
exists in the air. We are affected mainly
l>y the varying atmospheric changes and
conditions—electrical, temperature, mois
ture, . tc.
Third—That the main power that is in
strumental in maintaining- the cii-culation
of the blood is derived from the air
"These are the three missing links, for
which the world has been looking for
nearly 2,000 years, and completes the
chain. Governments have expended mill
ions of dollars to find out the actual cause
of disease, and have so far failed in
every instance. We have now discover
eed and fully demonstrated, the real nat
ural laws which are the cause of those
dreadful diseases—smallpox, scarlet re
ver, chiekenpox, typhoid fever, yellow
fe\ er, consumption, etc."
Dr. Rodermond is in appearance a well
dressed practicing physician. He has
none of the earmarks of the crank. Ho
speaks slowly and with deliberation, and
apparently is profoundly convinced that
the theories he advocates are founded
on immutable natural laws. He has
abandoned general practice, because, he
says, there is far too much humbug and
trickery connected with It. He is now a
specialist on the eye, ear and nose. He
has studied medicine in the United
States, France, England, Germany and
Austria. He belongs to no partioulat
school, and he has looked into allo
pathic, homeopathic and eclectic formß
