Few Cases in St. Paul, but
Piiysicans Are Appre
' The large number of smallpox cases
in,the state just now signifies little. to
the lay mind, but to the physicians and
the local boards of health the preva
lence of the ' disease brings grave ap
prehensions. : ■;. ■■'.'/: '[- .
A death due to smallpox has been a
rarity in St. Paul so long that many
view the disease, only in the light that
strict exclusion' from their fellow men
brings. As to fatal results that is the
least of the troubles of those affected,
and they make every effort to keep
the matter secret > and hoodwink the
health department. \
Dr. Ohage is fearful for the future of
smallpox in St. Paul, for he says the
disease is a treacherous one and re
quires constant vigilance in order to
j stamp it out. Its history has been one
of gradual increase in virulence until
finally death overtakes those whom the
the disease attacks. / ;
=-- Smallpox has been prevalent in St.
Paul for several years, generally mak
ing its appearance with the-advent of
cold weather. In St. Paul the number
of cases has been gradually reduced
until ten is now the number since the
season began, but a noticeable fact is
that those attacked have harder work
ridding themselves of the disease, while
the after effects are more serious. . .
St. Paul is in little danger now owing
to the vigilance being maintained by
the local department, but care is ad
vised.- "Vaccinate .and quarantine" is
the watchword, I and it is being carried
put literally wherever the. disease is lo
cated. ;-y":- '•■{ '-''■' "■'/.-"-;. - : --■ ■' -" ■

Christmas Trade This Year the Largest
in the History of St.
The rush at St. Paul's big- stores dur
ing the past weeks has now been trans
ferred from the sale departments to
the accounting' departments. In other
words the merchants are now counting
up their gains.
Every store "has felt the effect of the
holiday trade more this year than ever
before. The trade, owing- to the pros
perity of the people, ftas been heavier,
and while there was in the aggregate
a greater number of purchases the
general quality of the g-oods bought
was better than in previous years.
Though there were a few days when
bad weather prevailed, the merchants
report that there was no falling off in
business, and that as a whole the holi
day business this year surpassed that
of any year in the history of St. Paul.

Secure License in St. Paul and Are
Married by Commissioner Gallick—
Bride Wore Short Dress and Tarn
G'Shanter Cap—Commissioner Also
Accommodates Another Youthful
After stealing his niothr's wedding
ring and pawning it for enough money
to pay the expenses of his own mar
riage, Patrick Faltice, a sixteen-year
old boy, wiio has been living with his
parents at 314 First avenue southeast,
Minneapolis, ran away from his home
Wednesday and was married to Mary
Casey, a girl no older than himself.
The marriage ceremony was performed
by Court Commissioner Gallick, of this
city on Christmas eve.
The elopement and subsequent dis
appearance of the youthful bride and
groom has caused the greatest excite
ment among the members of the Ital
ian colony in Minneapolis, and yester
day afternoon the boys' father, Vin
cent Faltice, accompanied by his son
in-law, Pasquale Di Re, of 173 East
Third street, in this city, having just
learned of the boy's marriage, was at
the court house for the purpose of ver
ifying the truth of the rumor.
Two Secured Licenses.
The records in the clerk's office show
that a license was issued to Patrick
Faltlce and Mary Casey, Tuesday, Dec.
23, the applicant swearing that both
he and the girl were of age. Accom
panying Faltice was another boy, who
gave his name as Rudolph Boerner,
and a license was issued to him for his
marriage to May White. The two boys
then visited Court Commissioner Gal
lick and arranged to have the cere
mony performed Christmas eve.
In securing the licenses the ad
dresses of all parties, except that of
Faltice, were given as St. Paul, al
though the Faltice boy's father said
yesterday that all four came from Min
neapolis. The elder Faltice knew
nothing of his son's intention to get
married, and he said yesterday that
he had secured enough information to
lead him to believe that the affair was
nothing less than a double elopement,
none of the parties concerned being'
more than seventeen years old.
After the marriage young Faltice re
turned to the home of his parents in
Minneapolis for a few minutes Wednes
day night, but said nothing of his mar
riage, and saying he was going to
town for a short time, the boy left
and has not since.; been heard of.
Neither have the relatives of Faltice
been able to locate Boerner and his
The Faltice boy's father yesterday
asked the police to assist in locating
his son, whom he believes to be either
in St. Paul or Minneapolis, and as soon
as he is found an effort will be made
to have the marriage annulled on the
ground that neither of the contracting
parties was of legal age.
Mother's Ring-' His Only Asset.
"The only money the boy had was
what he realized on his mother's wed
ding ring, which he took from the
house the day he secured the marriage
license," said the father. "The ring,
we learned, had been pawned in Min
neapolis for a small amount of money,
but not enough to pay the expenses
of the marriage."
The girl whom Faltice married is
described as a mere child, not more
than fifteen years old. She still wore
short dresses and on her head was
a tarn o' shanter cap, such as is worn
by girls of her age.
Court Commissioner Gallick, who
married the two couples, said the boys
appeared to have very little money and
the fee he received was paid in small

pealed to the Almighty for proper
guidance in pleading to the charges.
"Oh, Lord, what shall! do? Guide me
Then after waiting a moment the
prisoner pleaded not guilty, exclaiming-:
"According to the dictation of my own
conscience and that of my heavenly
Father, I plead not guilty to both
The inspiration received by the blind
prisoner was not sufficient to induce
Judgre Hine to* dismiss the case, and
the hearing was set for this morning, at
which time Officer Pugleasa, who made
the arrest, will be in court to tell of the
unusual antics indulged in by the pris
oner at the time of his arrest.
Programme of Christmas Readings and
Songs Also Contributes to
The Christmas celebration of the St.
Paul Commons, held last evening, was
attended by the residents of the build
ing' and their friends. After the enter
tainment, in which a number of the
residents participated, the Christmas
tree, prettily decorated, was lighted
and bags of candy were distributed
among- the children.
Among those contributing to the pro
gramme, which consisted principally of
Christmas readings and songs, were
Lyle La Pine, Berenese Nelson, Kath
erine MeLeod, Gladys Corley, Horace
Schloss and the Commons quartette,
composed of Mr. and Mrs. La Pine, Mrs.
William Corley and Gusten Jungren.
Miss Blaisdell also conti-ibuted songs,
and the Commons orchestra played
several selections.
"You will have to pay the full
amount or go to the workhouse," said
the judge.
"Now, see here, judge, if I go there
I'll lose ray job, sure. I've got just
$1.10, and I'll give you that and pay
the rest as soon as I get it."
Judge Hine told feer that fines could
not be paid on the installment plan,
and that she would have to go back
to the workhouse. The woman pleaded
with the court until she was finally
taken to the conveyance which took her
to the Como institution.

Mrs. Charles Saunders Struck in the
Stomach by Piece of the Stove and
is Seriously Injured—Two Others in
the Room Experience Miraculous
A violent explosion utterly demol
ished a cook stove at the home of R.
Bereio, 684 Wabasha street, yesterday,
and seriously injured Mrs. Charles
Saunders, who was struck in "the pit
of the stomach by a piece of the water
back and severely cut on both hands
by flying pieces of iron. It is thought
the explosion was caused by a stray
piece of dynamite in the coal.
The fire was kindled in the stove
about 9 o'clock yesterday morning by
R. Bereio, a Cuban, who runs, a cigar
factory at his home, and is also em
ployed by a local cigar manufacturer.
About two hours afterward, according
to the statement made by Mr. Bereio
last night, the explosion took, place.
Mr. Bereio, Mrs. Saunders and Mrs.
Margaret Washington were in the
kitchen when the accident happened.
Mr. Bereio had just placed some coal
on the fire and was standing in front
of the stove. Mrs. Saunders was bend
ing down to replace the coal scuttle,
which Mr. Bereio had handed her, be
hind the stove, and Mrs. Washington
was washing dishes at the sink across
the room.
The Stove Explodes.
Mr. Bereio had scarcely covered the
fire pit with the lids when there was
4 terrific explosion. Fire shot to the
ceiling and flying- lids ripped off the
■ plastering of the room, a piece of the
framework made a meteoric flight
across the room and struck Mrs.
Washington, whose back was turned
to the stove, and flying coals spread
out over the floor.
Mr. Bereio, who was standing direct
ly in front of the stove at the time of
the explosion, was blackened with soot
and cinders, but miraculously escaped
without injury; but Mrs. Saunders was
caught in the stomach with a piece
of flying iron and hurled against a
The women fled from the room in a
panic, but Mr. Bereio stayed to fight
the fire, which started in a couple of
spots where the flying coals had fallen.
Dr. W. H. Sigler was summoned to
attend Mrs. Saunders, who is now con
fined to her bed. The extent of the in
jury in the stomach cannot now be
ascertained, but Dr. Sigler said last
night that he had no fears as to her
ultimate recovery.
Mr. Bereio said yesterday that he
thought the explosion was due to dyna
mite, as the fire had been burning up
to 1 o'clock yesterday morning, and
there had been no cbance to freeze the
water. Moreover, the fire had been
burning hotly in the stove for two
hours before the explosion occurred.

Finds That Because of Errors They Owe State Near
ly $217,000 in Taxes.
"Through this department the state
expects to recover something like $217,
--000 in taxes from seven railroad com
panies," said Public Examiner Johnson
'"The amount covers errors in report
ing and a misconstruction of the law
during the past six years," continued
the public examiner, "and we have
stipulated with nearly all of the roads
involved that the statute of limitations
is not to be pleaded either in the courts
or in arbitration if the state is obliged
to take this step. The errors were dis
covered in the examination of the books
of the several companies which was
provided for. by the legislature at the
extra session, and each item presents
a distinct legal question and it is prob
ably through a misconstruction of the
Jaw that the returns were not made or
the taxes paid to the state."
The amount of taxes under certain
constructions of the law as held by
Mr. Johnson's department make the
roads owe the state the following
Chicago, Minneapolis & St. Paul,
$61,928; Minneapolis & St. Louis, $18,
--012; Chicago & North-Western, $18,544;
Great Northern, $92,176; Chicago, St.
Paul, Minneapolis & Omaha, $14,484;
Northern Pacific, $8,333; Chicago Great
Western, $4,300.
"An agreement has practically been
reached between the department and
the Iron Range road looking to a set
tlement of the taxes due from it."
The state auditor received yesterday
from Accountant Yapp, of the state
railroad and warehouse commission, a
statement of additional tax returns
from railroad companies, the amount
of tax to be collected being as fol
lows: Wisconsin railway, $42.84; Soo

Railroad Men Say So, and
Add That Shipment
Is Large.
The cold weather of the past few
days has caused serious discomfort as
well as anxiety to the many who have
no fuel supply, or who are running
their stoves en short allowances.
Though there is an indication that
there will be relief from extreme cold,
St. Paul will have to wait for a week
anyway for hard coal to replenish the
empty "bins. Dealers, as a rule, say
they have no coal, and will not venture
to state when any will be on the local
market, but railroad men say that
there is a large quantity en route for
this vicinity, and that it will not be
long before it arrives. The amount
which will reach St. Paul within the
immediate future it is not possible to
determine, but befoVe many days have
passed there should be sufficient to
afford partial relief at any rate.
The price that will be asked will
probably not be below §10, for that is
the figure that is quoted for the pros
pective supply. When the railroads
are paid their rates, which amount to
$5.50 on a ton from the mines to St.
Paul, and when the mine owners and
the local dealers get their profit, the
price will certainly be boosted to that

teeth had been disposed of Borup says
he was unable to collect from Mon
