ANDREW SCHOCH IS WILLING TO
ABSORB THE GEDNEY PICK
AGREES TO PAY $1,000 A
YEAR FOR USE OF GROUND
Dr. Ohage Announces Offer at Confer
ence Between Himself and West Side
Representatives—Doctor Insists on
Removal of Gedney Spur—Settlement
Seems to Be in Sight.
The Andrew Schoch Grocery com
pany has informed Health Commis
sioner Ohage that it is willing to take
up the Gedney Pickling company's
West side levee lease, pay the owners a
fai sum of money for the plant and
factory, pay the city an annual rental
of $1,000 a year instead of $1, the sum
now received, and renounce all rights
to the spur track now in the rear of
This announcement l)r. Ohage yes
terday made to Dr. J. G. McNamara
and E. H. Wood, representing the West
Side Improvement association, both of
whom the doctor had invited to a
conference relative to an amicable set
tlement of the problem of the public
bath approaches referred to at the
meeting of the assembly Thursday
evening. Dr. Ohage further announced
that Mr. Schoch had informed him that
Jf a satisfactory absorption of the
lease were secured, all Mr. Gedney's
■present employes would bu retained,
and instead of fifteen persons, an
agreement would be made with the
city to employ twenty-five or more.
The factory, he said would, under the
Schoch control, be a St. Paul institu
tion rather than a branch of a Minne
apolis firm, as it Is now termed and
advertised by the company.
The conference between Dr. Ohage
and the West Side representatives was
quite lengthy and the situation
throughout was gone over in detail. It
■was in every way dispassionate. Dr.
Ohage said he simply desired a safe
approach to the island, and with the
spur track there he did not think it
could be obtained. This he desired

fence parallel with the main tracks of
the Omaha and a flagman stationed
constantly at the bridge entrance which
the main tracks cross.
Willing to Drop Condemnation.
As to the condemnation of the block
containing the four factories, Dr. Ohage
announced his willingness to drop the
matter, provided the owners aided him
in having the spur track taken out.
The removal of this spur track, how
ever, he would insist on; also the an
nulment of the Gedney lease. If this
■was done he would immediately pro
ceed to Improve the tract of ground
lying between the factories and the
main tracks, provide steps and give a
decent approach to the island. The
cost to the city he considered would
Through it all, the West side repre
sentatives listened attentively and
seemed much impressed. Both in
formed the doctor that while they had
the best interests of the West side at
heart they were also deeply interested
in the island, and they were willing
to agree to anything that would bring
about'W adjustment. Bdth' promised
to visit the other factory owners and
see if they could not secure their'con
sent towards obtaing the removal of
the spur track. The Omaha road, it
is understood, Is willing to pull it up,
provided the factory owners are will
ing. They now have directly across
the street from their places of bus
iness a freight depot and a number of
Bridge Would Be Costly.
During the discussion, a bridge from
the Wabasha street structure to the
island was proposed by the West side
representatives, and Bridge Engineer
Edmonstone was called in to tell what
he knew of its feasibility.
He said it could be built, but the
cost would be heavy, probably about
575,000. He thought the grade would

a poor one.
Yesterday Dr. Ohage received from
the Chamber of Commerce at letter
offering its services in bringing about
an amicable adjustment and asking
if such was in sight. Dr. Ohage re
plied that it seemed possible, and
thanked it for its offer.
The opinion is general that the con
troversy over the clogging of the ap
proaches to the baths will be adjusted
shortly. Dr. Ohage seems to be mas
ter of the situation, and while not ob
taining all that he originally asked
for, will practically come out of the
fray with flying colors. Secretary
Wood and Dr. McNamara say the
West Side Improvement association is
anxious for an early adjustment and
is willing to concede anything in rea
son and that will enhance the inter
ests of both their section of the city
and the public baths.
TWO MEN HURT IN A
WRECK NEAR ELKTON
Martin Osgard, a Fireman, and Thom
as Jones, a Printer, Sustains Se
Martin Osgard, a Great Western
fireman living at 420 Starkey street,
was severely scalded, and Thomas
Jones, a printer, was badly bruised in
a Great Western Wreck which oc
curred yesterday afternoon near Elk
ton, Minn., a small station about 100
miles from St. Paul. Engineer S.
Wheaton jumped from his cab and es
caped with slight injuries.
The wrecked train was a special
freight and was running at a high
rate of sp^ed, when it struck a switch.
The engine and thirteen cars left the
track and piled up in a heap in the
ditch. Osgard was caught in the cab
and was severely scalded by escaping
steam. He also sustained several se
vere bruises about the body.
Thomas Jones is a printer, who was
on his way from Chicago to St. Paul.
He was in a car load of coal at the
time of the accident. When the car
jumped the track, Jones was battered
about the interior of the car. His
head was cut in several places and his
right shoulder was dislocated. A re
lief train left St. Paul shortly after
the accident occurred and brought the
injured persons back. Osgard was
taken to his home and Jones went to
the city hospital. The remainder of
the train crew were not injured.
Later in the evening Osgard was re
moved form his home to St. Joseph's
hospital, as his injuries were discov
ered to be more serious than first sup
posed. The upper portion of his body
is badly scalded, and the hospital au
thorities say that his condition is se
rious. The exact extent of his in
juries cannot be determined at pres
ent, as they will not develop for a
couple of days.
FIVE SUSPECTS ARE ,
NOT THE RIGHT MEN
Police Are Convinced That McHenry
Was Not Implicated in Train
George McHenry, suspected of being
implicated in the Burlington train rob
bery, was brought into the police court
yesterday morning, and a charge of
trespassing placed against him. He
was then taken back to the county jail.
John E. Mooney, the Burlington en
gineer who claims to be able to rec
ognize one of the robbers, was to have
arrived in St. Paul yesterday afternoon
to look over the suspects held in the
county jail, but he did not come, how
ever, as there is not much credence
given to the suspicion that the five
men were in any way connected with
the gang. The police and detectives
ridtctrte'tfre-Mea that robbers of the
caliber that held up the Burlington
would try to beat their way into St
Paul on a freight train. It is generally
supposed in police circles that the gang
robbing the train was under the lead
ership of "Butch" Cassidy, who is sup
posed to be the man that held up the
Northern Pacific in Montana two years
ago. The five suspects in the '<«linty
jail will probably have a trial for tres
passing Tuesday, and no further action
will be taken against them. It was
learned yesterday that McHenry is well
known in lowa City, lowa, and that
he was there the night of the robbery.
HE SUES FOR INJURIES
CAUSED BY FALLING FLOOR
John Nelson Asks for $5,150 From Mc-
Cormick, Behnke & Co.
John Nelson has commenced an ac
tion in the district court against Mc-
Cormick, Behnke & Co., to recover $5 -
150 damages for injuries alleged to
have been received on Feb. 5, 1902
while he was in the employ of the com
pany. The plaintiff alleges that he was
at work on the second floor of the com
pany's warehouse, and that the bulk of
goods on the floor was too heavy for
the supports, and as a result the floor
gave way, carrying him down to the
first floor, together with the bales and
bundles, injuring his knee and inflict
ing other injuries.

the Dower Lumber Company of Wa

WATERMELON SCENE ON COMMISSION ROW.
According to the receipts on Com
mission Row these warm days, St. Paul
is consuming about four carloads, oi
an average of 6,000 melons a day. True,
some of the succulent fruit finds its
way to the rural districts, say the
commission men, but the number is so
small that the Saintly City can be
credited with nearly the entire amount.
The melons that St. Paul is consum
ing just now are freighted from Kan-

sas, Missouri and Indiana. The latter
state furnishes the most, for it is
there that they grow the best and in
the largest number. This may not
meet the approval of the average lover
of watermelon, who has been wont to
associate this refreshing edible with
the Sunny South, but it is a fact that
one portion of the Hoosier state, the
southern part, raises more watermel
ons than any state in the Union. Jack
son county in that state, a near neigh
bor to Posey county of hoop-pole fame,
is the center of the industry and nets
its farmers per acre more than the
far-famed wheat fields of the North
west. If it is a Jackson county melon
it is all right, and it is this brand of
fruit that St. Paul is whetting its ap
petite on just. The proportion from
Kansas and Missouri is fairly large,

the price. To be brief, St. Paul is pay
ing 5 to 10 cents more for every melon
it consumes this year than it did last.
Labor costs more and the people have
more money is the answer you will get
if the commission man is asked to ex
plain. The man he buys the fruit from
demands more and he has to ask mora
when he retails them. This is one of
the reasons the street gamin has cut
the fruit from his daily menu. When
he does manage to locate one it is con
sidered a treat and his pals are duly
impressed with his importance.
Unlike St. Louis and other cities
along the Mason and Dixon line, St.
Paul is not equipped with a water
melon exchange. The cars of fruit
arrive at the depot and their receipt
is heralded by the commission wagons

It will be fully two weeks before
the home-grown melon appears in the
market. While the crop is as large as
it generally is, its arrival will not cause
any appreciable drop in the price.
Some consider the home melon of bet
ter flavor and for this reason a little
more is asked for each. In size, how
ever, it does not compete. While the
commission men handle them, the ped
dlers sell the mdst, as it is the product
of their own land, and' they want the

DOUGLAS' VIEW OF THE
NEW PRIMARY LAW
Modifies His Previously Expressed
Attorney General Douglas recently
gave an opinion as to the rights of an
elector to vote at the primary election
for the candidacy of a party other
than the one he was affiliated with at
the last election. In answer to an
inquiry from James Martin, chairman
of the Republican committee, the at
torney general yesterday modified, or
as he expressed it, "made more clear"
the rights of the electors to vote for
the Republican candidates.
The latest opinion of the attorney
general is that a person who voted for
the Democratic candidate for governor
and congressman, but who supported
all or substantially all the other can
didates on the Republican ticket, is
entitled to receive and vote the Re
publican ballot at the primary.
The opinion of the attorney general
sent to Chairman Martin was as fol
"You inquire specifically as to
whether a person who voted for a
Democratic candidate for governor
(and also possibly for congress) at
the last general election, but who af
filiated with and supported all or sub
stantially all of the other candidates
of the Republican party upon the state
and national ticket, is entitled to re
ceive and vote the Republican ballot
at the coming primary election.
"Replying, I have to say that, in
my judgment, under such circum
stances the elector is entitled to re
ceive a Republican ballot and partici
pate in nominating the candidates of
the Republican party, provided, of
course, such voter states that 'he pro
posed to affiliate at the next general
election' with the Republican party.
"In other words, if a person asserts
at the primary election that he in
tends to affiliate with the Republican
party at the ensuing election and de
clares that he affiliated with the Re
publican party and 'generally sup
ported' (to use the language of the
statute) its candidate at the last gen
eral election, he is entitled to receive
the party ballot.
"In a doubtful case, I am inclined
to the view that such an elector may
vote the ballot of any party with
which he has heretofore affiliated, pro
vided he supported a majority of its
candidates at the last general elec
tion, and asserts that he intends to
affiliate with such party at the en
suing general election."
MRS. TURNER ACQUITTED
OF CHARGE OF CRUELTY
Evidence Disproves Accusation That
She Struck Her Stepdaughter.
Mrs. Bessie Turner, colored, 320
Farrington street, was discharged in
the police court yesterday on a charge
of cruelty to her eight-year-old step
daughter Bernice. The warrant for
her arrest was sworn out' by Humane
Agent Moak. The case was tried at
length and several witnesses, all col
ored, and who lived in the neighbor
hood of the Turners, were examined.
They were Mrs. Emma Adams, Mrs.
Georgia Stanton, Mrs. Stella Smith
and MiBS Zara Wright. Dr. Porter
testified that in his opinion the injury
to the girl's eye was caused by an in
sect and not by a blow, as was charg
ed. Judge Hine, after listening to the
testimony, discharged Mrs. Turner.

Valuable Plunder Found.
When the trunks were searched at
the Central station twenty gold
watches, sealskin sacques, pins, jew
elry of all kinds and a considerable
amount of female apparel was discov
ered. John C. Shea, of the Colonnade
hotel, identified his watch and some
pins, which were taken from his flat a
couple of weeks ago. Fred De Wilde,
whose room in the Windsor hotel was
robbed last Monday night, identified
his watch. Belle Gordon, 147 West
Third street, identified one of the seal
skin sacques. A considerable portion
of the jewelry found in the trunks is
said to belong to Nellie Bryant, of Min
The police believe that the plunder
already recovered will reach a valua
tion of $2,500, with another trunk yet
to be searched. By far the greater
part of the goods recovered belongs to
Minneapolis residents, as the quin
tette has been operating there for
many months past.
Allie Jackson, alias May Clark, alias
Lulu Foster, was tried for murder in
Chicago eight years ago, but was ac
quitted. She was accused of killing-
Allen Joyce, a colored man, and the
case was a sensational one for some
time. The Jackson woman claimed the
killing was done by Stella King, In
other respects she has a long record of
crime in many of the larger cities of
the country. Little is known of the
other woman, except that in 1899 she
was .living at her home in a small town
in Illinois. During 1900 she went to
Chicago, where she was employed as a
waitress in a restaurant, where she be
gan her career.
Came Back Willingly.
Both women agreed to come to St.
Paul without extradition papers, al
though they were advised by their
friends to make a fight. The Jackson
woman claims the reason she waived
her rights was that the women's de
partment of the Harrison street station
in Chicago was not clean enough.
The five prisoners will have a pre
liminary hearing in the police court
Monday, by which time the complaint
will have been made out and filed.
Shea and De Wilde yesterday served
garnishment papers on Chief O'Connor
to recover the money found on "Lefty"
Jackson and Allie Jackson. Each had
$121 sewed up in their wearing apparel.
Shea lost $76 in cash and De Wilde
The police maintain that they have a
clear case against all the prisoners and
Chief O'Connor is well satisfied with
the work. Although little was said
about it, the police began to work dili
gently immediately after the report of
the first burglary in St. Paul. Now
that the gang has been entirely round
ed up, they feel that it will be some
time before any "porch climbers" and

St. Paul Trust Company and Owners
of Lowry Arcade En
The board of equalization held a
short session yesterday morning and
considered a few petitions, the most
important of which was the application*
of the St. Paul Trust company, as
trustee of Mary E. Baker, one of the
heirs of Norman W. Kittson. As trus
tee, the company owns lots 2 to 33 in
clusive in Hull & Brown's addition to
Hyde park, formerly known as Mid
way. The property is assessed at $22,
--350, or at the rate of $900 an acre. In
its petition the company protested
that $500 an acre was plenty high
enough, as the land cannot be sold for
more than that figure. The applica
tion was taken under advisement.
J. F. Conklin was' present and ob
jected to an increase of $18,000 this
year on the property known as the
Lowry arcade. The property was as
sessed at $342,900 in 1900, and this year
at $360,600. Mr, Conklin objected to
the increase on the ground that the
property is not worth any more this
year than it was in 1900.

IS IT AN EPIDEMIC?
Vita! Statistics Show an Alarming
Increase in an Already Prevailing
Disease—Are Any Exempt?
At no time in the history of disease
has there been such an alarming in
crease in the number of cases of any
particular malady as in that of kidney
and bladder troubles now preying upon
the people of this country.
Today we see a relative, a friend or
an acquaintance apparently well, -and
in a few days we may be grieved to
learn of their serious illness or sudden
death, caused by that fatal type of
kidney trouble—Bright's disease.
Kidney trouble often becomes ad
vanced into acute stages before the af
flicted is aware of its presence; that la
why we read of so many sudden deaths
of prominent business and professional
men, physicians and others. They have
neglected to stop the leakin time.
While scientists are puzzling their
brains to find out the cause, each indi
