GOV. VAN SANT ENCOUNTERS A FROST IN WASHINGTON President Does Not Ask His Advice, Give Him an In terview or Take Kindly to the Idea of the Minnesota Executive as a Running Mate in 1904. From Globe Washington Bureau. WASHINGTON, D. C, Feb. 24.—Gov. Van Sant has not been received in Washington with that cordial glad ac claim which he probably anticipated. The following things which he desired' he has not secured: First—Lunch with the president. Second —Private interview with the president. Third—An administration boom for merger and Van. He has arranged to start for home to morrow without an opportunity to tell Roosevelt not to believe anything Heatwole told him. Roosevelt did not suggest an interview, which was gall and bitterness to the governor. He has arranged for 'another private talk next Thursday with Heatwole. Van Sant saw Roosevelt yesterday for less than half a minute. The president invited him to come to the musicale tonight and listen to the fiddlers and trombone artists, but at a function where there tire 800 guests there is no chance to talk merger and Minnesota politics. That is all the governor has talked to members of the delegation. They be lieve he dreams merger. The governor pays he cannot believe that President Roosevelt can really be listening to a man so misinformed as Heatwole. He cannot understand how Roosevelt can be fooled into thinking that Heatwole cuts any ice in Minnesota. No Advice Asked. "It is marvelous," says he. "As- GOVERNOR'S JUNKET SUSPENDS THE VETO POWER Tan Sanfs Trip to Washing ton While Legislature Is in Session Leaves People and Cherished Policies at Mercy of Dreaded Solons. Gov. Van Sant's visit to Washing ton is the source of much unpleasant political comment not half confined to discussion of his well known ambi tions to be vice president or senator or something. Gov. Van Sant has established a new precedent, if precedent it ever becomes. However, it is generally considered en tirely unlikely that another governor Will absent himself from the state for a period of more than two days during a legislative session. The friends of the governor are as much exercised over the altogether un usual proceeding of his excellency as those Republicans * not numbered among his warmest admirers. It 'is possible during his absence for a most vicious measure, sneaked through the legislature to become law. The gov ei nor is the only safeguard between the legislature and the people and his veto has in many instances saved the peo ple from expensive statutes. Suspends Veto Power. In the absence of the governor the veto power is suspended. Any bill passed by both houses of the legisla ture and not returned with a veto be comes a law in three days without the governor's signature. It is quite possi ble for bad measures to creep undis covered through the legislature, and some of the reformers are suffering from attacks of genuine alaifm. Even recognizing the patriotic spirit which makes his excellency feel the necessity of keeping the president in the straight and narrow path, his ac tion is the more remarkable in view of the attitude he assumed in the fight for the organization of the house. At that time there was much re sounding: talk of "governor's policies" nnd "governor's measures." The gov ernor has not, however, submitted a .single measure to the legislature and he seems not unduly alarmed about his policies being pulled awry while he is getting national policies straightened out and impressing on the party na tional that the governor of Minnesota is the real Bimon pure arti|le, genus octopus garroter, and the only fit run ning mate for Theodore Roosevelt in 1904. KEEP COUPONS OUT OF CIGARETTE PACKAGES Letters and Telegrams Said to Have Been "Inspired" by the Trust. From Globe Washington Bureau. WASHINGTON, D. C, Feb. 24.— Members of congress from Minnesota are receiving letters find telegrams from retail tobacco dealers in St. Paul and other cities urging them to vote against the bill forbidding cigarette manufacturers offering coupons and prizes. Several members were Inform ed today by wire that these communi cations were the result of pressure brought to bear by the American To bacco company, known as the trust, which has coerced dealefe. The bill Is now held up by Speaker' Henderson, who re-fuses to give It a rule, but Its frienda hope to persuade him. THE ST. PAUL GLOBE. toundlng. Can the president be so foolish?" And yet the fact remains that Roosevelt has not asked Van Sant for any advice or light on Minnesota matters. The governor has been ohuffed considerably about the lunch he miss ed at the White house. On that oc casion he got away before Roosevelt iemembered to deliver the Invitation. Van expected to make up on this visit for that slip-up, but somehow Roose velt did not remember this time any thing about the lunch game, so today the governor went to the capitol res taurant and had a bowl of half-and half (which is cream and milk mixed in equal portions) and dry bread. Last night the governor was the guest of the Washington detachment of his staff, namely, Col. Carmody, who took him to that hictoric grog-shop where Daniel Webster used to get drunk and all had chicken a la Maryland. Joel Heatwole and Nelson were not Invited to that party. This afternoon the gov ernor was honored by a reception g'ven under the auspices of Col. Carmody in the offices of Carmody and Congress man Fletcher and attended by all the government employes from Minnesota. Tonight the governor is in the mad whirl of gayety at the White house musicale, chaperoned by Col. Carmody in all the glory of his uniform. Governor Not Taken Seriously. All jesting aside, the national admin istration does not seem to take Van Sant very seriously. The president has been informed that the big Republican majority in Minnesota was attributed largely to Roosevelt's own popularity and that the governor is cherishing and spreading the delusion that it was en tirely due to Van Sant and merger. President Roosevelt is not supplying gas to swell any individual booms. The talk of Van Sant as a running mate made his back ache. During the last three days he has taken a very effective way to show that he does not care to play dog-under-the-wagon to Van Sant mergers and for Van to foster vice presidential aspirations would be fool ish.

FIRE RAQES IN THE STOCK YARDS Flames Break Out in the Packing House Plant of Swift & Co., South St. Paul was last night at 10:30 startled by a flre that threatened the entire stockyards and packing house plant of Swift & Co. Flames broke from the roof of the hog house which is located in the midst of the other buildings, and in a few moments the entire village was illuminated by the blaze. The building seemed enveloped In the flames and it appeared that ths entire plant would be soon at the mer cy of the fire. It gained considerable headway before the local fire depart ments were able to combat it. Soon, however, the South St. Paul depart ment and Swift's private fire depart ment were at work, and a desperate fight with the fire ensued. The hog house is located in the center of the plant and immediately next to the ica manufactory building, which was seri ously menaced. This 'building con tains machinery of great value and foi a time it seemed that It would suffei from the flames. Within a half hour after the flames w rere discovered nine streams wer& playing on the fire, and for over an hour the chances of getting it under control were slim. The other build ings in the vicinity were more than once threatened, but fortunately the wind was not strong. RESULT OF THE PETER POWER SUIT Camille Weidenfeld Suspend ed by the New York Stock Exchange. NEW YORK, Feb. 24.—Camille Weidenfeld, a member of the Stock Exchange since 1890, was today found guilty of acts "detrimental to the wel fare and Interest of the exchange" and was suspended for one year. This de cision was reached unanimously by the governing committee, after an execu tive session which lasted almost six. hours, during the greater part of which time M. Weidenfeld was under examV lnation. The other witnesses were M. H. Bou telle, of Minneapolis; Parker C. Chand ler, of Boston, and Herbert R. Lim burger, of this city, all of whom ap peared as counsel or attorneys in the Peter Power-Northern Pacific litiga tion and of which today's proceedings were the outgrowth. The nominal complainant was Wil liam McClure, secretary of the ex change. The exact character of the "charges and specifications" against Mr. Weldenfeld were not disclosed, but it was accepted as a matter of fact that Mr. Weidenfeld was regarded as the author and Instigator of the Peter Power suits, and that the Stock Ex change believed these suits to be con~ celved In bad faith. Following the decision of the govern-* ing committee Mr. Limburger, speak ing for Mr. Weidenfeld, said: "We had information beforehand that the proceedings would take this course, irrespective of any evidence that might be presented. We prepared accordingly and have served Mr. Mc- Clure with a copy of complaint for ad judication in a court where Mr. Weid enfeld probably will have a fair hear ing. Action will be brought in Nassau county, where Mr. Weidenfeld resides, so as to be reached more speedily for trial. "Mr. McClure was the only witness against Mr. Weidenfeld and the gov ernors of the exchange, so Mr. Weid enfeld declares, produced no paper or documents—no proof of any kind, so far as I can learn —against him. Mr. Weidenfeld appeared before the law committee of the exchange last Octo ber, and nothing, so far as we know, was done by that committee. The finding of that committee was not giv en to the defense. We will bring other actions against the exchange and against the men back of Mr. McClure. The Northern Pacific litigation will . South St. Paul. After the firemen had worked over two hours the flames were at length brought under control. The fire caused a panic In South St. Paul, for it appeared often when th& fire was raging that the entire plant would be destroyed. The people of the village, who are dependent upon the Industry, were often in despair. The flames rose so high that the illumina tion could be seen distinctly in St. Paul and wild reports of the destruc tion of the packing house plants were circulated number of people went down to South St. Paul on the late Great Western train. The fire started on the fourth floor of the hog house. This floor Is used for killing and the floors below are used for storage purposes. How the fire originated Is not known, but as a large amount of grease was necessarily about the place it is supposed that some of it became ignited. The first knowledge of the fire was when the flames were seen above the roof. The entire fourth floor was de stroyed and a hole seventy-five feet in length and breadth was burned through the roof. After tbe firemen had ceased their labor, about 12:30 the fire again broke forth and flames were seen rising from the roof. Though this second conflagration caused con- go as before and the appeal will be argued next May." Mr. Limburger declined to specify the nature of the "other actions" or to disclose the identity of. "the men back of Mr. McClure." The complaint served'on Mr. Mc- Clure as defendant says: "On or about the 14th day of Jan uary, 1903, the defendant in writing published and charged the plaintiff with having entered into a combina tion or conspiracy with one George Al fred Lamb and one or more other per sons to vex and harass, by means of legal proceedings, th,e persons who were Interested in about on the first day of Januaty, 1902, the re tirement of the whole of the outstand ing preferred stock of the Northern Pacific Railway company ajnd interest ed In having the corporation known as the Northern Securities company, ac quire more than a majority of the common stock of the Northern Pacific Railway company and of the preferred stock of the Great Northern Railway company." The complaint goes on to say that "said charges were made and published by the defendant dishonestly, willfully, maliciously, recklessly and in bad faith. Thereby the plaintiff was in jured In his good name, reputation, credit, business and otherwise to his damage to the sum of $500,000, for which he demands Judgment, together with the costs and disbursements of this action." Mr. Weidenfeld was formerly a part ner in the brokerage firm of Lawson, Weidenfeld & Co., the senior member being Thomas W. Lawson, the copper magnate of Boston. Reports also con nect Mr. Weidenfeld v ith close asso ciation with J. Edward Addicks, now of Delaware. CANADA'S GOVERNOR GENERAL TO RETIRE Lord Minto Will Resign at the Middle of His Term. OTTAWA, Ont., Feb. 24.—A gentleman whose office brings him into close rela tions with the governor general, is au thority for the statement that Lord Minto will retire from office In the fall of ttiis year, probably in November. His six year appointment doea not expire till the autumn of 1906, but other governors gen eral, with the single exception of the late Marquis of Dufferln, have not remained more than five years. HIGH SCHOOL PUPILS SUFFER FOR THEIR PATRIOTISM. BALLSTON, N. V., Feb. 24.—The Ballston high school class of 1903, four teen girls and boys, were refused admis sion to the school today. They became insubordinate yesterday afternoon because there was no observance of Washington's birthday and giving the class yell and shouting "Washington" led the school room. The board of education ordered the suspension of the entire class and the refusal to adn.it them this morning pending further action by the board. His Roost Is No Longer Safe. siderable excitement, It was soon brought under control. The total loss caused by the fire is estimated at $7,500, The loss to the building and machinery on the fourth floor amount to $2,500, and the loss to the meat stored on the floors below will amount to $5,000. The loss to the meat is chiefly due to water and smoke. As a result of the fire about fifty men will be thrown out of em ployment for a few weeks till the building can be repaired. Work on re storing the injured portions will be commenced this morning. Efficient service was rendered by the South South St. Paul and Swift fire departments, and to them is due the credit of preventing the possible de struction of the valuable plant. Supt. Burns and Assistant Superin tendent George Wakeman, of the Swift department, and Chief J. J. McCormick directed the work of the firemen. No aid was called for from St. Paul as South St. Paul and the private de partment of Swift & Co. were equipped with all the apparatus needed in the fight. The large pump in the packing house yards, which yields 1,500 gallons of water per minute, when necessary, proved valuable last night. The cattle and hogs in the pens, some distance away, were not in danger. MAN AND WOMAN ROB RESIDENCE With Masks Over Their Faces, They Loot a Stillwater House. Masked burglars, supposed to be from St. Paul, after covering the ser vant girl with a revolver, entered the home of David Connors on West Olive street, in Stillwater, at 9 o'clock last night, and stole six dresses, fifteen yards of silk, a ladies' gold watch and other jewelry. While the burglars were going through the house down stairs the servant girl was lying on the floor, unconscious from fright, in a room up stairs. At the time the burglars appeared at the house Mr. and Mrs. Connors were away from home, only the servant girl and the small children being at home. The children were being put to bed in their room upstairs, when the girl heard a noise at the door. She went down and opened the door and was immediately covered with a revolver in the hands of a man wearing a black mask, who told her he would kill her if she made a noise. He then threw his hands over her mouth and asked a companion, who had remained In the background, to come to his assistance. The answer, from the companion was In the voice of a woman. The girl fainted and re membered no more until she was re vived some time later. While the girl was unconscious the burglars went through the house. Shortly before 10 o'clock, when Mrs. Connors arrived home, she found both the front and rear doors open and upon going upstairs found, the girl lying on the floor unconscious. Neigh bors were summoned te her assistance and after some time the girl revived sufficiently to relate what had hap pened. She was able to give a fairly good description of the man, and was certain that his companion was a woman. Both the Stillwater and St. Paul po lice were notified and worked on the case last night, but as yet no arrests have been made. The Stillwater police learned that a man and woman carry ing several bundles boarded a car at 9:30 for St. Paul, and It Is believed these are the parties who committed the burglary. They left the car out on East Seventh street. Dealing With Howard at Duluth. Special to The Globe. DUL.UTH, Minn..

The osteopaths' regular biennial bid for official recognition was presented to the house yesterday in a bill intro duced by Representative Stevenson, of Minneapolis. The bill differs from its predecessors only in that it is perhaps wider in its scope. It provides for a state board of examiners, state license and regis tration; a state fund and penalties, the latter, not entirely dissimilar from those provided for medical men. According to the Stevenson bill the governor must within thirty days aft er the passage of the measure appoint a state board of osteopathic examiners and registration. This board is to be composed of five resident physicians of osteopathy in good standing and graduates of recognized schools. No member of the board may be a mem ber of the faculty of any school of os teopathy financially interested in any such school. May Confirm Degrees. The board is required to organize by electing a president and secretary with in fifteen days after its appointment. The members of the first board are to be appointed for terms of one. two, three, four and five years, respectively, and appointments thereafter are to be for terms of five years. The officers of the board are to be elected for terms of one year and. serve without extra compensation. They are given the power of admin istering oaths and the board is re quired to meet at least twice in each year—on the second Tuesday in March and September. It is empowered to confer or confirm the degree of doctor or diplomat of osteopathy. All persons engaged in the'practice of osteopathy prior to March 1, 1903, must apply to the board within sixty days for licenses to practice and reg istration. Such license and registra tion is to be granted on the exhibition of diploma of graduation from a rec ognized school or upon satisfactory examination. Subsequent applications for license and registration are to be determined by examination in pre scribed subjects. Given Sweeping Powers. The board is empowered to revoke licenses to practice for unprofessional or dishonorable conduct, which is de fined as aiding in or performing crim inal abortions, convictions of any of fense involving moral turpitude or will ful betrayal of professional confidence to the detriment of the patient. The license fee is fixed at $20, which must accompany applications and which goes into the fund whether the applicant is successful or not. Infrac tions of the proposed law are defined as misdemeanors, punishable by fines of not less than $25 nor more than $100, or imprisonment for not less than thir ty days nor more than six months or both. Fines collected as the result of prosecutions in the name of the state board are to be divided equally between the county school funds and the state osteopathic fund. Compensation of the members of the board* is limited to $5 per day and 3 cents per mile for trav eling expenses. NYQUIST'S BUSY DAY. Blue Earth Statesman Floors Two Vet eran Measures. Representative Nils Nyquist again demonstrated to the house yesterday that as a pinch hitter he is in the star class and to the new membership at large that Nyquist is a power to be reckoned with. Few bills have met slaughter so sud den and decisive as that administered to the Deming cemetery bill yesterday morning by the quiet little man from Blue Earth county. The Deming bill, designed to give cemetery associations the right of eminent domain and con demnation, Is no stranger to veteran legislators. It has been knifed session after session, but never in quite so dra matic a manner as yesterday's laugh able finale. Deming nursed his bill along through* committee and up to the general orders where he progressed the measure from day to day until he felt strong enough to push tor the calendar. He determin ed on yesterday for the supreme effort and when his bill was called secured the floor for a long and rather elabo rate speech on a measure that he said should pass on its merits. The Hennepin delegation was, as usual, badly split on the proposition. On the one hand, Deming lauded the bill as a measure absolutely essential to the welfare of the country and peo ple generally, while George R. Smith, Hennepin, and other members sailed Into it, denouncing the bill as a scheme to defraud the widow and mulct the bereaved orphan, as well as to soak the unsuspecting property owner who might have holdings coveted by ceme tery associations. The arguments pro and con made Nyquist very tired, but he retained his usual inconspicuous quiet for more than an hour. Then he reached the bubbling point and the story of the Deming bill was all told. In a lull in the fusiiade of oratorical missies, Ny quist got the floor and in his quaint, but ever effective English, said: "I would like to know if those gen tlemen over there are a committee by themselves. This measure is bad, all bad. I received a letter from a friend in Minneapolis asking me lo kill it. I replied that if he let the Hennepin dele gation alone it would manage the kill ing without any outside assistance. But now as a substitute for all pending mo tions, I move that when the committee rise this bill be recommended for in definite postponement." The effect was almost magical. The house caught up Nyquist's motion with a whoop and a laugh and it was carried so .quickly and so decisively that the friends of the measure were too sur prised to enter a single negative vote. At the afternoon session of the com mitteee of the whole Nyquist again laid for Deming and at the conclusion of the latter's speech in advocacy of the 4 per cent rate of interest on school contracts, again moved for indefinite postponement and was again success ful. Dr. Bracken Passes Lie and Dr. Budd Uses Swear Word in Warm Anti-Vaccination Discussion—Horton Wins First Eound for Antis in Senate. The exchange of personalities, the passing of the lie and a roast for the St. Paul health commissioner at the hands of Senator Horton were inci dents of the discussion on compulsory vaccination in the house and senate yesterday. In the senate, with Senators Horton and Thompson as their champions and spokesmen, the anti-vaccinationists rather had the better of the encounter on points, but before the house com mittee on public health, dairy and food.where President Griggs and Laura C. Little led the fight against that portion of Posseen's proposed new health code providing for compulsory vaccination, they drew the short end of the encounter. The lie was given Mr. Griggs by Dr. Bracken, of the state board of health; Dr. Budd, of the committee, roasted Griggs, and Dr. Levison, whom the anti-vaceinationists consider the world's greatest authority, and in the end the objectional section will go to the house to be fought in committee of the whole. Bitterness in Evidence. The meeting of the house commit tee after adjournment yesterday after noon was chiefly characterized by the bitterness displayed. The remarks made by President Griggs, of the anti- Vaccination society, were hotly re sented by Drs. Bracken and Budd and lurid language resulted. The commit tee last night held an executive meet ing at the Merchants' hotel and prac tically decided that the disputed sec tion was of too much importance to be finally passed upon in the commit tee and it will go to the house un changed. President Griggs got the lie from Dr. Bracken early in the deliberations and thereafter, the head of the health department declined in any way to no tice the anti-vaccinationist. Mr.Griggs told the committee that his child had been twice vaccinated and subsequent ly had smallpox. The manner in which Mr. Griggs spoke of the vaccination of his child implied that it was success ful or worked. Bracken Passes the "Lie." Dr. Bracken waa at once on his feet. He told the committee that he had ex amined the Griggs child, there were no marks Indicative of vaccination and that in telling the committee the child had been successfully vaccinated, Mr. Griggs lied. Griggs stirred Dr. Budd, of Two Harbors, to the swearing point by stating that vaccination Is a crime and that any person injecting the vac cine poison Into the veins of a child should be prosecuted. Budd prefaced his remarks with a fiery: "You don't know a damned tWing about the subject you are attempting to discuss," and wound up with the intimation that Dr. Levison Is not a graduate of any recognized school of medicine and has no right to expect to discuss scientific questions before sci entific men. A minority of the com mittee is with the anti-vaccinationists and rather than face a minority report which might affect the whole bill, It was decided at last night's executive session to allow the section to go to the house unchanged and without recom mendation. Antis Win in the Senate. The anti-vaccinationists had their ' inning yesterday morning in the sen ate, when Senator Hardy's anti-vacci nation bill, recommended for indefinite postponement by the senate commit tee on public health, was put on gen eral orders and ordered printed. When the Hardy bill came out ot committee yesterday morning, Senator Thompson objected to the adverse rec ommendation, and moved that the committee's report be rejected and that the bill be placed on general or ders. The senator from Fillmore de clared that there is a growing senti ment that compulsory vaccination i 3 wrong, and for this reason he thought that the bill should be thoroughly dis cussed before the senate acted. Dr. Cole, senator from Otter Tall, declared for compulsory vaccination, but announced himself willing to have the question debated, and agreed with Senator Thompson's motion to place the bill on general orders. Senator Horton, of Ramsey, showed himself a real anti-vaccinationist by declaring that he doubted the right of doctors to assault citizens by shoot- Ing the vaccine dope into them. Vaccination an Assault. "There Is no state but Minnesota which has compulsory vaccination legislation without qualification," de clared the Ramsey senator, "and I doubt myself the right for a citizen to be subject to assault by doctors who insist upon shooting the dope into him." Senator Horton went on to point out that there is no protection to be found in the laws of the state for the helpless children against "these men of medi cine who are rampant with the vac cine. "Many respectable citizens are op posed to compulsory vaccination," continued the senator, "and they should not be laughed out of the chance to express themselves. We can not rightfully so violate the constitu • tional rights of the individual. There is a universal sentiment that the citi zen should be protected against tno" burly doctor who would shoot into him the harpoon of vaccination. Touches Up Ohage. "The doctors do not answer our questions candidly, and give their sci entific reasons for this thing. We ought to know. Here we see the health commisisoner of St. Paul declare In our public press that *I will vaccinate every school child, every employe* everybody else in this city,' when, aa a matter of fact, he has not the au thority to do so, and has just found out that he has not." Senator Cole smiled at the argu ments advanced by Senator Horton, saying: "The senator proves that a lawyer discusses medicine with as much sense and wit as a doctor gen erally discusses law." He declared that the doctors were willing that all Continued on Sixth Page.
