PAUL THE ST., FAUX, Ui^UBE, SATURDAY, CHARTER IS VALID so DECLARES judge, kelly IN wabasha BRIDGE ASSESS ■ MENT MATTER POWEE OF EMINENT DOMAIN Conrt Overrules Objectors' Conten tion Tbat Charter Commission Had No Authority to Confer Such Power to City. Judge Kelly filed his decision yester day in the matter of the Wabasha street bridge assessments, so-called, the broad effect of which decision may perhaps be best expressed in the brief but compre hersive paragraph with which the court concludes his memorandum in the case and which reads as follows: "On the whole case I am satisfied that the present charter of St. Paul is valid." This matter came before the court upon the application of the city treasurer for judgment against the real estate delin quent upon the assessment for the con demnation of lot 4, in block "D,"' and lot 4, in block "H," for the approaches, piers and abutments of the Wabasha street bridge at its south end and the objections of certain of the assessed property owners to the assessments. The objectors were abcut sixty-five in num ber. The court in his order denies the treasurer's application for judgment as to lots 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6, in block 9, of Robertson's addition to West St. Paul, sustaining the objections of Ed ward Habern an with reference to that property. "* It is also oidered that the application of the treasurer as to a number of lots owned by the Chicago Great Western road and the objections of that com pany shall be continued until the March term of covrt upon the one question as to how much of the property is in actual use for railroad purposes. All o£ the other objections filed are over ruled, and the application of the city treasurer is granted in all other cases except those referred to above. As to the objectors' contention that the charter confers no authority upon the council and board of public works to condemn property for briuges as for piers, abutments or approaches to bridges the court holds that every bridge is under the law a highway and therefore the authority referred to is unquestionable. One of the principal poi 'ts urged by the objectors was that the charter commis sion had not authority either to confer on the municipality the power of eminent domain, or prescribe for tnis district court the methods and procedure set out in the charter in condemnation and assessment cases- Commenting upon that contention the court says that if the point is well taken the city of St. Paul is practically without a charter, except as it relates to the police department, which the supreme court has held valid. However, the court holds that in the "freeholders' charter" of luOO, the ccm mission merely recommended to the peo ple and the people adopted word for word what was always before the law as enacted by the legislature. . As to the contention that «-Je commis sion cannot confer upon the municipality the right of eminent domain the court says: "Neither in the constitution or in the enabling act or in any general law of the state is the authority denied to the commission to frame a charter contain ing the power of eminent domain and therefore the commission was within its authority when it framed this charter, consistent with and subject to the laws of the state,' and the people—the source of all political power—having ratified and adopted it the charter is valid. E. S. Durment, who is attorney for a number of the objectors said yesterday to The Globe that tne case would, with out question; be carried up to the supreme court. Speaking of the decision, Mr. Durment said: "It is just about w-at I expected. I anticipated that the court would uphold the validity of the charter and perhaps it would have been unreasonable to expect anything else. I think, however, that this suit will bring about changes in the mode of procedure." QUESTION OF NEGLIGENCE. Widow of Alline Dixon Suing North- em Pacific Road. In the United States court yesterday Judge Lochren heard the case of Alline Dixon, administratrix of the estate of Chauncey A. Dixon, deceased, against trie Northern Pacific Railway company. There was no jury, as the arguments were upon stipulated facts. The plaintiff intestate was a fireman on the Northern Pacific road, and was killed in a collision be tween freight trains Dec. 25, 1899, near Drummond, Mont. On the part of the company it is contended that the negli gence of the telegraph operator, or train dispatcher, at Bonita. Mont., which brought about the accident, was a case of carelessness on the part of one of Dixon's fellow servants, and not attrib utable to any negligence on the part of the company. ANGELL JURY DISCHARGED. Could Not Agree on Case Against Great Northern. The jury in the damage suit of William C. Angell against the Great Northern road, which went out Thursday after noon, had reached no agreement at 5 o'clock yesterday afternoon. As there was no indication at that time that an agreement could be reached, the jury was discharged by Judge Lewis. Angell, it appeared from the evidence, was a menVber of a construction crew at Kliva, Mont. , and when injured was in a- box car preparing a meal for his fel low workmen. It was alleged that owing to an open switch, which was attributed to negligence, a train collided with the box car in which Angell was at work and he was thrown down. It was repre sented that he had suffered injuries to his eyes and to his right leg. He de manded damages of $25,000. COUNTY AUDITOR SI ED. County Commissioner!! Want Bourne Embezzlements Refunded. County Attorney Kane filed yesterday his complaint in another of the suits to reimburse the county for the loss result ing from the alleged embezzlement of Walter B. Bourne while he was deputy county auditor. In this action, as in the former ones, the county commissioners arc plaintiffs and the defendants are William R. Johnson, the present county auditor, and the National Security com pany, which furnished Mr. Johnson's bond. The object of the; suit is to recover from the defendants $11,832.55, which amount it is alleged was embezzled by Bourne during Mr. Johnson's incumbency as county auditor. On Trial for Third Time. For the third time the case of George Hermann, administrator of the estate of Emil Hermann, against Harry E. Clark is on trial in the district court before Judge Otis arid a jury. Two former juries have been unable to agree upon a verdict. Emil Hermann was an employe of the defendant and was killed last summer while working on the dredge boat engaged in the union depot improve ments at the levee. He became entangled in a, rope which was being wound around a rapidly moving "winch-head" and was so crushed that death was almost in stantaneous. The administrator sues for 55,000. Jury Gives Kaiz. $1,0C5.59. The jury in the case of A. E. Katz, against Charles Hlavac and the Amer ican Bonding and Trust company re turned a verdict of $1,068.59 for the plain tiff. The suit was upon a replevin bond in the defendant company filed by Hlavac In replevin proceedings for possession of a stock of boots and shoes over which there has been litigation for many menths. Hlavac was eventually defeated in the suit. Service of summons upon Hlavac was not secured in the suit upon >he bond. Mrs. Bortel Gets Divorce.

NEED PAY NO TAX SUPREME COURT HOLDS IMPOST ON FREIGHT LINES UNCON STITUTIONAL YIELDED THE STATE $9,000 Court Holds That It Would Be In. equal Taxation—Signed Release In Personal Injury Case Mot Binding. The state supreme court yesterday handed down two decisions, both opin ions being written by Justice. Brown Tfc e most important is a decision which de clares unconstitutional the law placing a 2 per cent lax upon the property of freight lines in Minnesota. The decision is in the case of the state against the Canada Cattle Car company, <a West Virginia corporation, to recover taxes for-1898, together with interest and penalties, amounting all told to $480. The decision also involves about thirty other companies owing the state $9,100. The decision affirms one by the Ram sey county district court. The right of the state board of equali zation to fix a taxable value upon the property is conceded, but the decision says the state law of 1897, fixing an arbi trary tax rate of 2 per cent is void, be cause it violates section 1, article 'J, of the constitution, which requires that tax ation shall be" equal. The other decision affirms the judg ment of the Hennepin county court in favor of Jacob Schus in a personal in jury suit vs. Powers-Simpson company. The company operated a logging road at Hibbing. Schus was employed as brakeman. While coupling cars one dark night he was thrown under the train and injured. While Schus was in the hospital an agent of the company called and pre sented him with $75, and at the same time induced him to sign a paper, which afterwards proved to release the com pany from liability for damages. Schus subsequently testified that he did not knew that he was signing such re lease, and that he regarded the $75 as a clonation. The testimony also showed that the engineer had disregarded the usual cus tom of stopping his engine v.iien the cars came together, and had backed it so hard that the rear car had passed over a large log of wood placed on the track to block the wheels. Schus had warned the engineer to be careful. The jury gave the plaintiff a verdict Which the courts sustain on the ground that Schus was not guilty of contributory negligence, and that the release he signed under a misapprehension was not binding. The syllabi in the cases follow: Law Is Unconstitutional. Slate of Minnesota, appellant, vs. Can ada Cattle Car Co., respondent. Chapter KO, Laws 1897, construed as authorizing and providing for a tax upon the prciperty of corporations engaged m interstate commerce and coming within its corporation, for which it was com petent for the legislature to provide, but the rate of taxation imposed thereby (2 per cent upon the value of such prop erty) not being uniform with the rate imposed by law upon other property smv ilarlv taxed, renders the act in violation of section 1, of article 9, of the constitu tion of this state, and void as unequal taxation. Order affirmed. —Brown, J. Xot Contributory Aegliftence, Jacob Schus, respondent, vs. Powers- Simpson Company, a corporation, ap pellant. 1 Defendant is a corporation organized for the purpose of manufacturing and dealing in lumber; buying, improving, selling and dealing in real and personal property connected with its lumbering business; and in addition thereto and in connection therewith, it owns and oper ates what is called a "logging railroad" which is equipped with four locomotives and a number of logging and box cars used in carrying logs fom the pineries to the saw mills owned and operated by it! It does not follow the business of a common carrier of passengers and freight, the operation of the road being limited exclusively to its own private business, but its servants and employes er.gaged in the operation of its trains art exposed to the same dangers and risks as are employes and servants of railroad corporations engaged as com iron carriers. Held, that G. S. 1594, sec tion 2761, known as the "fellow-servant act," applies to defendant, and it is liable to an employe engaged in the operation of such railroad for injuries caused by the negligence of a co-em ploye or fellow servant. 2. In this connection, one to recover damages for personal injuries received by a brakeman in coupling cars on de fendant's said railroad, the evidence re ceived on the trial tended to show that there was a general custom in respect to the operation of the road for the engi neer when cars being coupled came to gether, to immediately stop his engine and hold it stationary until signaled to again move it by the brakeman making the coupling. It further tended to snow that on the occasion complained of this custom was not observed by defendants engineer, in consequence of wl*ch jplain til'C was injured. It is held that the evi dence was sufficient to vequire the sub mission of the case to the jury, and to sustain their verdict to the effect that such custom existed, and that the engi neer's failure to follow and observe it at the time complained of, was the proxi mate cause of plaintiffs injury. 3. Evidence examined and considered, and held to sustain the verdict of the jury to the effect that plaintiff was not guilty of contributory negligence and did net assume the risks incident to mak ing the coupling in question; also to sus tain the verdict that plaintiff's cause of action was not settled and adjusted by an agreement between the parties made and entered into prior to the commence ment of the action. Order affirmed. —Brown, J. BID ON THE NEW WARD TENDERS OPENED FOR ADDITION TO CITY HOSPITAL.

KEPT AWAY FROM IT CHARTER COMMISSION' SHITCS AT DORAVS PLAN TO ABOLiISW POLICE BOARD WHEEIOCK AND OHAGE HEARD Point Out Necessity for Reins Al lowed Receipts in Their De- Z partments, anil Create Fa- . -vorable Impression. Z The rumored intention on the part of the charter commission to create for pre sentation to the voters at the spring election an amendment calling for the abolition of the pres-ent efficient police commission and a return to the oiv. order of things did not maverialize when that body met last night. The subject was not even broached. The members generally were opposed to it, while the police committee which met in the afternoon so emphatically gave its disapproval, that there is little prospect of the matter ever being reopened, unless its instigator, President Doran, insists, and pushes it to the extent of a debate. The amendment drafted, it is under stood, at tile instance of President Doran, was circulated among the members sev eral days ago and it was really the ue sire to discuss the matter that led to the call far the meeting la- - night. President issued the call, but what with minor matters and a conference with President Wheeiock, of the park board, and Dr. Ohage, o. the health depart ment, the police question was never reached. At the conclusion of the con ference adjournment was taKen. Former Mayor Doran's antipathy to the police commission is well known, and his desire to have it abolished came as no surprise. The amendment which he de sired indorsed was practically a facsimile of the old regulations, with the mayor the official head. He would have a-* ap pointments emanate from that official, also dismissals. The only difference from the old requirements is that a sort of civil service is provided. Dr. Bridgeman is chairman of the com mittee on police, but it is said he refuses to give the proposed amendment his ap proval. The members of the commission generally refuse to discuss the matter. The commission went on record last night as being opposed to the presenting of amendments at the spring election. Instead they will be presented at the fall election, by which time the enabling act will have been amended to the extent of making it intelligible. President Wheelock, of the park board, and Health Commissioner Ohage talked at length on the necessity of the charter being amended to the extent of allowing their departments the use of all receipts and fiscal balances, and argued so well that the commission .was favorably im pressed. The keeping of receipts from concessions, Mr. Wheelock informed the commission, was necessary for the future improvement of Phalen park. Without them nothing can be done. In a previous report the committee on fiscal affairs op posed such a scheme. The commission last night seemed con vinced and there is little doubt that amendments In accordance with the views advanced will be submitted to the voters at the proper time.

"Prior to that the city clerk did the work, and here is his memorandum," and Mr Bremer held up to view a ragged piece of parchment, pasted together with mu cilage. _"What moneys were received prior to that I have no knowledge, all I know about is this memorandum, and what has been paid into my office. If any moneys were paid in before that time they are not on my records. If the receipts are out, however, they will soon tell the tale " The owners of - the Gedney pickling wcrks claim to have made- eight pay ments, but all. Mr. Bremer has any rec ord of, including the memorandum held by the clerk, is six payments. His list of arrearages was submitted to the legal department the early part of December. Since that time several of those behind have made payments. Several of the West side firms claim to hold receipts for rentals paid up to date, and Mr. Bremer, with the aid of the legal department, says he will make full inquiry. . . FOB AMATEUR TEAMS. Ohage Determined to Have Uji\l Park on Harriet I.slan.l. Health Commisisoner Ohage's tender of a portion of Harriet island for a ball park has so far failed to receive favor able recognition from the directors of the local club. "If they don't want It," said the doctor yesterday, "I will clear a space any way, and make a park and allow its use by smateur teams and those who dc. sire to use it." - Manager Lennon, It is understood, is opposed to the grounds because they do not insure privacy, as the bluffs and bridge would furnish vantage ground for those who did not have the price, or wanted to save it.
