NEWS OF THE CITY
ERNST WILL APPEAR
AND SAY NOT GUILTY
Attorney Stan Donnelly,
Who Will Defend the
Banker, Denies the Ru
mor That His Client In
tended to Admit Guilt
When Arraigned for Pre
liminary Examination —
Line of Defense Not Yet
Decided Upon, but Case
Will Be Fought to a Fin
Casper Ernst will enter a plea of not
guilty when arraigned before Judge Orr
In the criminal division of the district
court at 10 o'clock this morning.
The rumor which has prevailed for
some days that the banker would plead
guilty to the charges of forgery and em
bezzlement preferred against him when
arraigned in court today was dispelled
last night by the statement of Attorney
Stan J. Donnelly, who has been retained
by Ernst as counsel.
Mr. Donnelly denied emphatically that
his client would admit his guilt when
brought into court today.
"He will plead not guilty, of course,"
said Mr. Donnelly in reply to the ques
tion. "The case will take the same course
as that of any other where the circum
stances are similar. The arraignment to
morrow morning will be formal. Mr.
Ernst will enter a plea of not guilty, and
the court will probably fix new bonds.
Line of Defense Not Decided on.
"I have not as yet had an opportunity
to look over the indictments and cannot,
at this time, say just what action will be
taken by the defense. There will be noth
ing more than the mere arraignment so
far as the proceedings in court tomorrow
Mr. Donnelly naturally declined to state,
upon what lines the defense would con
duct its case.
When asked if the defense would at
tempt to prove that Ernst was insane the
attorney declined to discuss the matter,
declaring the defense would not make
RUN DOWN WHILE ON
MISSION Of MERCY
Mrs. Anna L. Morrison, on Her
Way to Visit Prisoners, Is'
Yesterday afternoon, about 8 o'clock,
•while on her way to the county jail to
conduct services for the prisoners, Mrs.
Anna L. Morrison, an aged and well
known religious worker of the city, was
run down by a horse and buggy driven
by a young woman at the corner of Sixth
and Wabasha streets.
Mrs. Morrison was struck by the horse
and thrown to the pavement. She was
knocked unconscious and received a deep
cut in the back of her head at the base
of the skull, and her left ear was torn
She was immediately hurried to her
home in the police ambulance under the
care of Dr. Moore, police surgeon, and
Dr. A. Donald was summoned to attend
Dr. Donald, after dressing Mrs. Morri
son's wounds, said that though they are
not apparently of a serious nature, still,
on account of her advanced age, she be
ing eighty, it is not possible to determine
whether serious results' will follow.
Mis. Morrison has conducted services
for the prisoners at the jail during the
past fifteen years. When she met with
the accident she was on her way to the
jail, having come from the workhouse,
where she had held services.
Mrs. Morrison, carrying her Bible In her
hand, stepped from the sidewalk into the
street at the corner of Sixth and Waba
sha, when a buggy containing two young
women, one of whom was driving, ap
proached the crossing. A street car was
passing and the horse, becoming fright
ened, leaped aside. The young woman
(hiving attempted to direct the animal's
course, but was unable to do so, and
when Mrs. Morrison, seeing the impend
ing danger and endeavoring to get out
of the way of the horse, stepped to one
side, the horse took the same direction,
striking her and throwing her under its
feet and under the buggy. Unconscious,
the woman lay upon the pavement till
Lieut. Henry Meyerding carried her into
the drug store at the corner, where she
remained till taken to her home in the
Lieut. Meyerding placed the young
women under arrest and took them to the
police station. They gave their names as
Miss Marie Dahl, Avon hotel,, and Miss
E. Ross, 35 East Ninth street. Miss Dahl
was driving-, and she was held, while Miss
Ross was allowed to go. The buggy had
been obtained from a livery stable. Tho
young woman giving her name as Miss
Dahl afterwards said that she was mar

ATTORNEY STAN J. DONNELLY,
Who Has Been Retained to Defend
known its proposed procedure until the
proper time for such a disclosure.
The calling into the case of Mr. Donnelly
is taken by many as an indication of the
banker's defermination to fight to the
last ditch. Whether or not there is any
foundation for the rumor that Ernst will
resort to the insanity plea cannot be
foretold, although some of his recent acts
give color to the belief that he will do so.
When Ernst is arraigned before Judge
Orr this morning he will be asked to
plead to three serious charges, contained
in as many indictments returned by the
grand jury, two of which charge grand
larceny in the second degree and one
forgery in the first degree.
Grand Jury Still on the Case.
Regardless of any plea which may be
entered by the banker, it' is stated that
the grand jury will make a further in
vestigation of his methods of doing busi
ness, and already the names of many
persons who are supposed to be able to
throw light upon the financier's alleged
crooked transactions are in the hands of
the county attorney, and subpoenas are
soon to be prepared summoning them be
fore the grand jury.
Ernst will be taken from the county
jail to the criminal court room on the
top floor of the court house at 10 o'clock
this morning for arraignment.
It is expected that the room will be
crowded by the morbid and In
clined, and as a precaution Sheriff Justus
has arranged to have an extra force of
deputies on hand to see that order is pre
SEEKS AN ASSISTANT
Sends Plans and Specifications
So Applicants May Know
What Is Required.
Down in the little town of Downing,
Wis., there is a position open to the
lady who can fulfill the requirements
of T. B. Davis, the proprietor of a gen
eral merchandise store.
Davis is in need of some one to keep
his books, act as his private secretary,
perform the duties of an interpreter
and manipulate the typewriter.
Unable to find anyone in his section
of the country who could properly fill
the position, Davis has written to a
local typewriting agency, asking it to
assist him to find the combination of
mental and physical qualities expect
ed. Here is his letter verbatim
Downing, Wis., 11-19-1903.—Gentle
men: I wish a good honest lady book
keeper, one of good health, who can
come at 7:30 A. M. take a short noon
ing, and stay until 9:00 P. M. on Sat.
nights, and come in once in a while
Sundays and answer some necessary
letters. They must act as cashier,
Bookkeeper, and private Sec. Wish
some one neat, who uses good lan
guage, not too small neither so large
as to attract attention, in fact no
freaks, do not care what nationality
they are, but would like them to talk
good english, and wish they could also
speak Skandinavan, or german. Would
like to know their wt. hight, Bust
measure, color of eyes anfcl hair, and
where their parents reside if any, dont
care whether a young widow, grass
widow, a married woman, Old maid, or
girl of 18 to 25, so as they will attend
to business, and work for my interest.
I only pay $30.00, board is $2.50 to $3.00
with room and give them all kinds of
Mdse. both for themselves and fami
lies at wholesale prices which is no
small item. Who ever I have must
keep business to themselves as I make
them my confidant or dont want them.
We write many letter daily. Yours
respt. T. B. Davis.
The St. Paul firm to whom Davis
appealed has submitted the tempting
opportunity to a number of young
women, but so far none has bought a
ticket to Downing, Wis.

LABOR Of CHILDREN
Stringent Laws Now Secure Ed
ucational Opportunities and
Leisure for the Young.
Regulation of child labor has proved
a serious problem to the German gov
ernment, as is shown In reports re
cently received by the state bureau of
labor. These reports have been trans
lated by Julius Moersch, statistician of
the department of factory Inspection,
and in them is found much information
that is interesting.
The laws regulating the employment
of children In manufacturing and me-
chanical industries throughout the Ger
man empire were revised in 1891, and
with beneficial effect, for the number
of children employed in such industries
in 1890 was 27,685, and was reduced to
11,212 in 1892 and 5,312 in 1896. In
1900 the number of children employed
The effect of this new law was with
in its limitations very satisfactory;
yet it was found that it was not far
reaching enough, for it did not provide
for supervision over children of school
age employed in the so-called home
trades, in non-manufacturing estab
lishments and those engaged in agri
cultural pursuits and on farms.
Half a Million Employed.
The imperial government in 1898 or
dered an investigation into these con
ditions, and a census of establish
ments and children was taken which
showed that throughout the empire I
532,283 children under fourteen years of
age were found employed in all sorts of
employments outside of factories.
Prussia alone had 269,598 shildren so
employed. Of this number, 50,163 were
in the Rhenish province and 26,286 in
the province of Westphalia, both of
these provinces being prominent in
manufactures. For the Rhenish prov
ince of Prussia the following detailed
report was made: 6,704 children em
ployed in spinning and weaving (home
industry), 6,804 carrying newspapers,
5,805 employed in bakeshops, delivering
bakery goods, 3,562 running errands, 1,
--453 employed in bowling alleys, 1,496
employed as help to laborers.
Previous to this investigation the en
actment of regulations for the em
ployment of children in home trades
and manufacturing was left to the lo
cal police authorities, whose efforts
were wholly inadequate, and the inves
tigations resulted in the pres%ntatlon
of a new law by the Imperial govern
ment to the reichstag. This law was
accepted and will take effect with the
beginning of the new year.
A law of April 9, 1900, provided that
children of school age must not be em
ployed in factories that use motive
power. But this prohibition has been
extended by the new regulations and
specifies that following trades and in
dustries: buildings under way of con
struction, brick yards, quarries, mines,
slate works, stone and marbel works,
cement and pottery works, glass works,
lead and brass works, file works, es
tablishments using mercury, abattoirs;
dye works, Junk sorting, tanneries,
slaughtering and meat packing estab
lishments, chemical factories, bottling
works of alcoholic drinks, etc.
The employment of children in the
aters and public shows also is pro
hibited, except where they are held in
the interest of education and art, and
In this case they must be under the
supervision of the local school author- :
For industries permitted to employ
children and for home industries the
following regulations are specified:
Children must not be employed befere
8 o'clock In the morning nor after 8
o'clock in the evening, and such em
ployment is not permitted during the
forenoon sessions of the schools. The
employment must not be for more than
three hours, and children must have
at least two hours rest for dinner. Dur
ign vacation the time of employment
may be extended to four hours each
day. Parents are not allowed to em
ploy their own children In their home
trade or business other than in con
formity with these regulations.
This new law affects all children un
der fourteen years of age, and such as
have passed this age limit but have
not passed through the school grades
as provided by thee ducational laws.
The employment of children for run
ning errands and employment on Sun
day is also regulated by law.
Employers of children have to sup
ply themselves with an employment
permit for each individual child, and

Ponds Were Covered Yesterday
With Young and Old.
Every lake, pond and swamp and along
the river bottoms for miles around the
city, where ice over a half inch thick
could be found, had its quota of skaters
out yesterday. Old and young burnished
up their skates and spent the day enjoy
ing the sport which has been popular in
St. Paul for many years.
The small boy was up with the birds,
and early in the morning his merry voice
could be heard ringing over little spots
of ice in various parts of the city. Sun
day school and churcn were forgotten,
while the amateur hockey champions of
years to come passed the hours on the
Their elders began to swarm to the
ponds later in the day and by afternoon
wherever there was a safe piece of ice
there was a crowd. The skating rinks
which have already opened did a large
Como Not Yet Available.
The ice at Lake Como, St. Paul's great-
est natural skating rink, is not yet thick
enough, and the park officials have not
yet thrown It open to the skaters. If the
cold weather continues, however, it will
be opened on Thanksgiving day. Many
skaters applied at the park, but outside
of a few fwitall boys, wTio Kept well out of
reach of the officers, none were allowed
The ice at White Bear lake is in fine
condition and was coveredyesterday with
ice boats and skaters. Th*.4c"e boating
was especially fine and two or three
dozen of fliers were on, the lake.
There is a good deal of ice along the
river bottoms and many spent the day
gliding about there. Down on the flats
the children had an especially fine time.
Few of them own skates, but they can
all slide, and tin pans and boards were
also pressed into service to furnish more
means of locomotion.
The small lakes in the parks in the
outskirts of the city, and the dozens of
ponds about town were all well frozen
over and all offered good skating.
Hockey Players Get Ready.
With the advent of the skating season
the lovers of winter sports have already
commenced preparations for their inning:.
The hockey players of the city have al
ready organized their teams and they
will strive with the one purpose this year
of developing a team which will take
away the United States championship
from Houghton. Mich., which won It from
Pittsburg last winter. The St. Paul team
had its hands fairly on the prize last year,
when an injury to one of the best players
dashed the team's hopes and it lost by
a score of 6 to 4.
The City Hockey league will probably
be re-organized in a few days and contain
nearly all the teams which played last
year, and perhaps one or two more. A-ll
the clubs will be strengthened by new
men and some crack aggregations are
expected to be turned out before the
