While rumors were rife of trouble In the Republican camp during the pen dency of the corporation attorney struggle, it has only come to light now how near the affair came to breaking out in open revolt. Oscar Hallam, a young Republican attorney and prominent In local Re publican circles, was the disturbing factor, and his principal backer was Aid. Elder, of the Eleventh ward. Elder, it is said, insisted on Hallam's candi dacy, and so strongly that at one stage of the game it looked as if the cam paign instituted to save Corporation Attorney Markham would go to pieces. So incensed were the other members of the Republican minority at the in terference of Hallam-Elder combina tion that at a conference held just pre vious to the election Monday evening, the decision was all but reached to cast the entire vote of the six Repub licans for Hallam and thus place at his door the odium of defeat. "We'll make him the fall guy," was the suggestion of one of the members, but other counsels prevailed and the vote Mas given to Mr. Markham in stead." The feeling against Hallam and Elder in the Republican camp is still warm .and an open clash is promised at no distant date. WORK IN YELLOWSTONE PARK PROGRESSING Capt.

Residents of Polk and adjoining counties want Public Examiner John son removed from office, and are pre paring tt> appeal to Gov. Van Sant to have it done. The following special from Crookston show^ the pulse of the people there: CROOKSTON, Minn., Feb. 24.—Nu merous petitions are in circulation in Polk and adjoining counties praying Gov. Van Sant to remove Public Ex-. aminer Johnson. The petitions re cite that the examiner does not pos sess qualifications necessary for his position. In his official capacity the petition charges him with being over bearing, arrogant and boastful, and also with circulating reports calcu lated to injure the character of re spectable public officers and private citizens. "In short," the petition closes, "his official acts have been usually charac terized hy a spirit of indiscretion and unfairness that has made him gener ally obnoxious, and, in the opinion of your petitioners, sholud constitute grounds for his dismissal." The petitions are being quite gen erally signed, especially in Polk coun ty. Result of Ralph Trouble. "Its all about that Ralph drainage trouble," said Mr. Johnson, last night, when shown the special, "but it is not worrying me. I am subject to Im peachment, and the people have the law in their hands, so why don't they get busy and prefer charges. I am willing to face them. The whole trou ble is that I investigated the transac tions of George W. Ralph, a member of the drainage board at Crookstbn, and placed the result of my investiga tions in the hands of the attorney gen eral and the attorney of Polk county. "I did my sworn duty, and I do not care how many petitions they circu late. Ralph, in his capacity of com missioner, employs a lot of men and laborers, and it is largely their names, bo I am told, that are signed to the petitions. Why don't they petition for the removal of the attorney general? He has been as active as myself in this matter. It's a thing 1 I do not like to be quoted on, but if you do say any thing-, simply tell them that I am not losing any sleep over their petitions." CORPORATIONS ADD TO THEIR CAPITAL STOCK Fees Paid by Two Enrich the State Treasury by $5,150. The state treasury was enriched yes terday by $5,150, which was paid as in corporation fees by the Sharon Ore company and the Donora Mining com pany. The Sharon Ore company, with head quarters at Duluth, was organized in May, 1900, with a capital stock of $200,000. The amended articles of in corporation filed yesterday increases the capital stock to $5,000,000, and the incorporation fee" paid was $2,400. The company has a mine at the town of Buhl, St. Louis county, midway be tween Virginia and Hibbing. The Donora Mining company, with headquarters at Duluth, also filed amended articles of incorporation in creasing its capital stock, which in June, 1901, when it organized, was $500,000, to $6,000,000, and the check for the increase in its stock was in the way of fees for $2,750. George W. Dorr, of Sharon, Pa., 1b president of the Sharon company, and W. H. Dormer, of Pittsburg, Pa., is president of the Donora company. Other incorporations filing articles with the secretary of state were: The G. G. Jacoby Company of Min neapolis, to engage in the liquor busi ness. Capital stock, $30,000; incorpor ators, George G. and F. G. Jacoby and Albert Mikolas, of Minneapolis. The Winifred Mining Company of Hibbing has amended its articles changing the nature of its business to that of a manufacturing concern. STATE FINISHES IN WEINHOLZER CASE Witnesses Describe Drunken Orgies in The Empire Theater. Witnesses for the state yesterday adduced much damaging testimony in the case of The State against Anton Weinholzer, proprietor of the Empire theater, who is on trial in the criminal division of the district court, charged with keeping a disorderly house. Several of the witnesses called by the state yesterday were women who admitted that they had been in the habit of frequenting the resort. They testified to having seen many fights and other disorderly occurrences in the place, and said it was not uncom mon to see drunken women there. One witness testified that upon one occa sion she had seen a drunken woman fall from her chair to the floor, and, after she had been picked up by sev eral men, she had been treated fo more beer. May Jensen, who was called to the stand because she was in the habit of visiting the place, admitted that she had been reprimanded by Weinholzer because she refused, at one time, to take a drink When a stranger offered to buy it for her. She was told that if she could not take the drinks when they were offered her she had better stay away. She squared matters, she said, by telling Weinholzer that when she did take a drink that she took an expensive one. The state finished with its case dur ing the afternoon, and the examina tion of witnesses for the defense was commenced. It is believed the case will go to the jury this afternoon.

The work of remodeling the Fort Snelling barricks has begun, and will be finished within the coming two weeeks. The old roofing of tin will be torn off and slate put in its place. The brown frame row of houses, known as '"D" row, will be removed as soon as the weather conditions will permit to a position back of the en listed men's row, and given over to the married men, thus giving them a great deal better accommodations than they have heretofore enjoyed.

William S. Russell, twenty-four years of age;"whd left his home on a farm in Sedgwick county, Kansas, a year ago, arrived in St. Paul from Butte, Mont.,^Monday, a wealthy young man, and yesterday was wed to Miss Myrtle M. Silknitter, a pretty nine teen-year-old, -girl, who reached St. Paul from Rose Hill, Kan., yesterday morning. The couple were married by Court Commissioner Galliek yester day afternoon,' and an hour later de parted for Ottumwa, lowa, where they will visit with relatives for a few days before proceeding to their future home in Texas, where young Russell will en gage in the horse and mule raising business. Miss Silknitter and Russell were lov ers before the young man forsook the farm and went West to look for a for tune. They lived near each other in Kansas, and it was understood be tween them that they were to be mar ried as soon as the young man secured ■ a start in life. Russell went West a year ago and made a number of lucky deals in mining, which netted him more than $9,000. With this amount of money In his possession Russell communicated with Mill Silknitter and asked her to meet him in St. Paul, which she did. "There's nothing to make a story of," said Russell to The Globe yester day, just after he had purchased a marriage license. "I happened to strike it lucky, and now I am going to Texas and invest the money in a ranch. We decided to get married here because Miss Silknitter had always wanted to see St. Paul. We are both of age, and have known each other since we were children: in fact, neither of us ever kept company with anyone else in our lives. We have been going together since she was twelve years old, and it was only natural we should decide to get married." LIEUT. LOVE'S ARM HAS UGLY EXPERIENCES Shattered by Filipino Bullets, It Is Again Injured. "Lieut. Love is on the sick list —fell and injured Ms arm on the ice," said Capt. William Morrow, adjutant of Fort Snelling- post, to a reporter yester day, "and by the way, there is quite a little tale in connection with that arm of Love's. Four years ago about this time of year it was thought that he would never use it agairi—that he would never have it to use. "It was in the town of Calomba, Lu zon, when Wheaton was investigating the town and Love was with the com missary department of the party. He was taking over the stores from the lieutenant whom he was relieving, and the two were checking up the books, when word came in that firing had opened up in another quarter of the town. There was no officer to go and Love, with the impulsiveness that has always marked him. said in an instant, 'Let me go, colonel.' There was no one else, as I have said, and away went Love. "Half an hour afterwards he came back, holding- his shattered arm—one of the very worst wounds I have ever seen, and I had no small experience in the Philippines. The arm was literally shattered to pieces, and for months upon months he could not salute with It. He has always complained of it inconveniencing him by its stiffness and the fall seriously set it back. "The fig-ht at Calomba? Ah, yes! That waj a wicked little skirmish. In it we lost one officer and four men and had eleven men wounded." Knox Hats, Spring Overcoats, Hanan Shoes. The Plymouth Clothing House, Seventh and Robert. A. O. H.

ALLEGED BRIBING OF JURY GROUND FOR NEW TRIAL Judge Lewis Grants Motion in a Personal Injury Case Against the Soo Railroad in Which It Is Alleged Jury Was Tampered With. The verdict of $6,750 secured by Wil liam Chittick a year ago in the per sonal injury damage suit brought against the Soo road was yesterday set aside by Judge Lewis and a new trial of the case ordered. The case will be retried at the March term of the dis trict court. The new trial is ordered on the strength of affidavits to the effect that the jury which rendered the verdict had been tampered with, it being al leged by sworn statements that Theo dore D. Patinaud, one of the jurors, had been offered $200 by W. L. Keefe, if he would hold out for a verdict of $7,000. The case was first tried more than a year ago. at which time a verdict for $6,750 in favor of the plaintiff was re turned. A new trial on straight legal questions was refused and the verdict was sustained by the supreme court. Later, charges of attempted jury bribing, supported by the affidavit of one of the jurors, was made against W. L. Keefe, who was interested in the prosecution of the case, and the de fense sought a new trial on these grounds. The motion for a new trial on this ground was argued before Judge Lewis Feb. 7, and in his decision handed down yesterday he says a new trial is not only granted, but that one is demanded. The verdict is set aside and the case will be tried again. In the memorandum attached to his decision, Judge Lewis thoroughly re views the case. He adds: Public Is Affected. "Were this a question involving the rights of the litigants only, the situa tion would be radically changed, but this is a charge of a crime which af fects the commonwealth, or the public policy of the government. The consti tution of this and every other state in the Union guarantees to every citizen that the right of trial by jury shall re main inviolate. The state is a sove reignr power, and as such it is bound and it is its duty to execute faithfully the authority and law vested in it by the people and thus protect them against Invasion of their rights as to person and property, which tr^ consti tution says shall remain inviolate. "Tampering with a jury is an offense which interferes with the proper ad ministration- of the law and is a crime against public justice. It affects upt only the parties litigant, but the citi zens of the community as well. And for this reason public policy requires that the administration of justice shall not only be chaste, but that it shall be above suspicion. "And so where it appears that a jury has been exposed to improper influences from outside sources which may have affected the verdict, the presumption of the law is against the purity of the verdict. "There is the further fact that the grand jury of this county, in the dis charge of its duty, has returned an in dictment against Keefe for this iden tical offense, the trial of which case is now pending in court. "With these matters in the public mind it is not strange that charges and countercharges of jury bribing are rife. And upon the showing before this court in the matter, I believe it is time that litigants understood that no verdict which is the subject of suspi cion because of the misconduct of the prevailing party or parties in interest in tampering with juries will be allowed to stand, to the end that justice be not subverted and that the decrees of court may not be brought into contempt. For these reasons, among others, the mo tion for a new trial is granted." ATTORNEY SETTLES WITH FORMER CLIENT J. C. Jensen Pays $133.35 to Mrs. Mc- Nellis in Probate Court. Attorney J. C. Jensen, a major on the staff of Gov. Van Sant, was yes terday roundly scored by Probate Judge Bazille, after which the attor ney was ordered to pay over to Mrs. John McNellis the Bum of $133.35, which amount Mrs. McNellis had charged him with retaining against her wishes and demands. Jensen was first employed by Mrs. McNellis to probate the will of the late John McNellis, but subsequently Mrs. McNellis secured other attorneys, and demanded an accounting from Jensen. She alleged he had converted notes into money and that he held notes and papers belonging to the estate valued at several hundred dollars. Because he had refused to account for these papers he was in the probate court yesterday upon an order made by Judge Bazille. The matter was finally adjusted by Jensen agreeing to pay the sum of $133.35. In addressing Attorney Jensen, Judge Bazille said: "I do not believe any at torney who would do as you are al leged to have done should be allowed to practice in this court, and I there fore feel like probing this matter to the bottom." MUCH MARRIED PAIR RETURN TO ST. PAUL Mr. and Mrs. George C. Rugg Horn* Again After Honeymoon Trip. Mr. and Mrs. George Culver Rugg, who were married a week ago by Court Commissioner Gallick, and later by the Rev. Theodore Sedgwick, returned yes terday morning from their wedding trip. They spent the past week in Chi- eago. The newly and much-married couple will reside at the home of Col. H. P. Rugg, 251 Summit avenue. At the close of the Lenten season, Mrs. Pope, mother of the bride, will give a large reception in honor of her daughter. Almost all the brides of the past sea son will also entertain for Mj-s.

Theater-g-oers who are In their seats before the orchestra begins the over ture Saturday night at the Metropoli tan will see the new drop curtain that has just been painted by Peter Claus sen. It weighs two tons. The curtain is on heavy asbestos and Mr. Claus sen has painted on it a scene on the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul rail road, showing the bridge where the "Pioneer Limited" crosses the river near the government dam. A passen ger train is crossing the bridge and the painter has been remarkably suc cessful In catching the effect of mo tion. The painting is a picture within a picture, for above the scene has been painted a heavy gold frame, partly concealed by rich draperies. The hanging of a curtain in a thea ter the size of the Metropolitan is not an easy task. From 9 o"clock yes terday morning until late last night a small army of men were at work get ting the curtain in place. The big sheet of asbestoes had been stretched on a frame at one side of the stage while Mr. Claussen was painting the scene. As soon as the painting was finished the curtain was taken down and carefully spread on the stage. Great care had to be used in doing this, for the smallest crease in the asbestoes *neant a crack in the painting. To get the curtain up three weight bags, each containing one hundred pounds of lead, were fastened to ropes that were in turn fastened to the curtain. The height of the proscenium arch of the Metropolitan stage is thirty feet, so the mere raising of the cur tain was a difficult and laborious feat. I'he men had to work in the "flies," which are flimsy galleries up very near the roof of the theater, and on the gridiron, a lattice of steel slats that stretches across the stage and is prac tically the roof itself. Even when the curtain was once up the task was not completed. The three bags which enabled the men to put It in place could not be used to draw the curtain up and down. Such an arrangement would be primitive and clumsy. Big theater curtains are raised and lowered by exactly the same process that dirt is excavated from sewers. A big windlass, which is operated by two men every night at the theater, draws the curtain up or lets it down. At tached to this windlass is a lead weight that lightens considerably the labors of the men, but which by no means does away with their efforts. It is cus tomary to speak of curtains "rolling" up. As a matter of fact, curtains are drawn up. They do not roll up. The Metropolitan proscenium arch is thirty feet high.
