ALLEGED WIDOW IS
CUT OUT OF WEALTH
High Court Holds That She
Didn't Prove Her Marriage
to Johann Mueller.
By a decision of the supreme court
handed - down yesterday ; the long and
hard-fought contest over the estate of
Johann Mueller is finally settled.
The property of the deceased, Includ
ing mining lands in St. Louis county
said to be worth $1,000,000, goes to the
claimants in Bohemia, and the St. Louis
county district court is upheld in de
nying any right of inheritance to Mrs.
Katrlna Mueller, of Detroit, the alleged
-The history of the. case has been re
lated in The Globe. Johann Mueller
died at Duluth, and at the time of:his
death some of his property was mort
gaged to Father E. S. Kosmerl. Some
time after his death Mrs. Katrlna Muel
ler, of Detroit, put in a claim to the es
tate as the widow. .The contest arose
over the question of identification of "
the deceased as the Johann Mueller
who had been the husband of, this
woman. The description of her hus
band closely fitted the man who - had
died at Duluth, and facts in his; past
life tended to show identity; but there
was evidence to prove that the Duluth
man had never been married. - " ;
The district court of St. Louis county
held, that the Johann Mueller, whose
estate was in controversy, had never
been married and that, the claimants in
Bohemia were the rightful heirs.- v
The supreme court holds with the
lower court that the burden of proof of
the marriage was upon the alleged
widow. •--'■.'. .-V-:-_'r.'

WAS TOO STRONG
Supreme Court Sustains but
Modifies Decree of Lower
Court In Labor Case.
Judge Cray, of the Hennepin county
district court; is upheld by the supreme
court in having granted W. I. Gray &
Co. protection of j law against the j boy
cott threatened by the Building Trades
council of Minneapolis.; But in affirm
ing 7 Judge Cray's judgment |on \ that
point the higher court rules that he ex
ceeded the law in denying the union
workmen the right' to picket the prem
ises where Gray & Co.'s employes were
at - work or to use any otherl peaceable
means to induce those employes to
quit work. ■-- -7^' : > r
This:case originated = in the general
strikes among the workmen" In the
building trades in : Minneapolis last
summer. s| Representatives of the Build
ing Trades- council appeared on May
15 -a last "before.'the Minneapolisi Sum
mer -Carnival association and notified
that organization that, the council J and
the unions which constitute*d~it would
boycott the "carnival ,in "case any 'con
tract should be awarded to W. I. Gray
& Co. - :'/• :','"" .;'-_ "7"...,. :'.-".
--. That iwas the cause of action In the
suit of W. jI. Gray & ; Co. against the
Building Trades council in which Judge
Cray issued -, an injunction restraining
the council from boycotting the plaint
iff's : business or"picketing the premises
where the plaintiff might have menl at
work, or in any way Interfering; with
the business operations of the plaintiff.
This was looked upon as -a: severe blow
to . unionism, and its f rigid inhibitions
caused! a ' general outcry from ; the
friends ' of 3 organized . labor, | who ' de
clared that if the laws were interpreted
according to j Judge Cray's ideas trades
unions would become no more than de
bating societies,' and workmen would
even be "denied the right to enter into
an agreement with one another to quit
work. -^.;;',;:.;.':. .■••'--:''.-v.r^-"; Vr-V"
Discusses Rights of Unions.
The opinion of. the 1 supreme . court,
which is written by Justice Brown, is
a discussion of the rights of labor. It
proclaims labor organizations or unions
to; be not only lawful but legitimate
and proper, and declares the right "of
members of those ■ unions \to strike: and
to use every means in their power that
is consistent with law and : order to in
duce others to join them. :As to the
exercise of the boycott. the court says:
- A person's . occupation \or calling j by
means jof which jhe earns a livelihood and
endeavors to better his condition and to
provide for and support himself and'those
dependent - upon him, is -propertyr within
the meaning, of the law. and entitled to
protection as such, and as conducted by
the merchant, by the capitalist, is, aside
from the goods, chattels, money or effects
employed and- used in connection there
with, property in every sense of the word.
Labor may organize, as capital does, for
its own" protection and to further the in
terests of the laboring \ class. They may
strike and Induce others to join them,
"but when they resort to unlawful means
to cause injury to others with whom they
have no - relation, ". contractural or other
wise, _ the limit permitted by the law is
passed and they may be restrained. '-'•-'•
I The syllabus in the case is as follows:
•1. The granting of a temporary injunc
tion -, to plaintiff by the : trial * court,. after
Issue joined and - upon the pleading * and
affidavits of both i parties, is, for the pur
pose of reviewing the action of the* court,
deemed. to be in effect a finding that the
allegations |of \ the complaint upon \ which
the writ is prayed for are true; and upon
appeal from . the order granting the i writ
this court .will review the affidavits only
to the extent of determining whether they
fairly, tend to support the allegations of
2. A boycott is a combination of sev
eral persons to cause loss or injury to
a third person by causing others against
their will :to . withdraw^ from him; their
beneficial business intercourse X through
threats..that, unless _ a compliancei with
their demands is made, the persons form
ing the combination will . cause loss or
injury to him; or an" organization \ formed
to exclude" a"> person " from - business » rela
tions -with - others by persuasion,- but in
timidation, or other acts, which tends to
violence, ' and thereby: cause him through
fear of resulting injury, to submit to dic
tation in the management of his affairs. -1
-7 3. Intimidation, ; coercion or • threats of
injury are essential -elements of a boy
. cott, • but . what ; would constitute ''. acts :of
that character must depend upon the facts
of each particular case. 7 ;_-_■
4. The constitution guarantees to every
citizen 1 liberty - and; a certain remedy in
the laws for all - Injuries or wrongs which
he may. receive in his * person, property, or
character; and "a person's business, ( occu
pation, or calling is; aside from > the" chat
tels or money employed - therein, property
within the.; meaning,- of ,:the""law : and en
titled to' its protection. 7:. ..
5. : Labor organizations or 'unions are
not unlawful, but are legitimate and prop
er for t the; advancement .of ' their ■ mem
bers and those dependent upon them. The
members thereof may singly, or in a body,
quit the service of their, employer, for the
purpose of bettering their condition,'- and
may by peaceful ■ means - persuade 1 others
to them, and as a means to that end,
may refuse .to 'allow their members --.to
work in places .where • non-union . labor :is
employed. • But boycotting, as defined
above, is an unlawful conspiracy and may

THROWS DOG MONEY
And Gets Good Advice From
."The. best advice I can give you is to
stop throwing your money '. to the dogs,"
said i Judge | nines, in t the' municipal
court, yesterday," to R. J. Gregnor, who,
with M. Horrigan was arraigned on a
charge of disorderly.conduct. __. . *
7 Gregnor and Horrigan were arrested
Wednesday night in : a saloon jon Sev
enth street, after Gregnor had com
plained to a policeman that Horrigan
hadr stolen .some' of his money. The
stories of the " two \ men: were peculiar
and so the policeman locked them both
up on a charge of disorderly conduct.
1. Gregnor stated in • court yesterday
that S Horrigan was! - the ! owner of a
trick dog and that while standing the
saloon' he (Gregnor) began an exhibi
tion by throwing a half dollar to the
dog."". The animal carried it to his mas
ter, who returned the money to Gregnor.
Then he threw a ' dollar - and a halt- on
the floor and | the dog quickly snatched
up the dollar and carried it to his mas- 1
ter. The next time, Gregnor says, he
tried two silver dollars and a half dol
lar, I and the ■■" animal I quickly snatched
.up the , two . dollars. Horrigan, Gregnor
says, returned one of the dollars and
claimed that was all that the dog had
brought to, him. * "If he picked up two
he : must 1 have swallowed one," said
Horrigan. "I only got one from him.*' ,
Gregnor claimed that he 1 had thrown
two, and then sought a policeman, who
arrested both of : them. Gregnor's ver
sion of the story, brought j forth laugh
ter from. the occupants of j the court
room. Judge Hine held that the offense
alleged by | Gregnor .was not disorderly
conduct," and discharged both men. "*s !|
THE PALACE HAS HAD
A BANNER; BUSINESS
Business Has Demonstrated Success of
the Store's Methods and Policy. %y*
With _ the -closing of its doors last
night, the . sales '■ and balance sheet of
the Palace Clothing House , totaled i;a
--' figure which a year ago would not have
been deemed within the limits of pos
sibility. : •
Not only have the sales for the year
been far beyond all expectations, but
the Christmas trade | captures the j ban
ner in all departments of the great in-,
stitution. As a matter of fact, although
each month's business "during^the.tiast,
year, has shown a most substantial in
crease, yet the 7 Christmas % trade 7 has
distanced them all proportionately, and
..is regarded by the management as sim
ply phenomenal. -' - " 77 •
. The most marked « peculiarity about
the 7increase, has been:.the. ever
strengthening demand: for the higher
grade of goods, and the volume of de
mand has created more. sales, as well
as a larger amount on the cash' sheet.'
In line with: its well-known "policy of
liberality, it is understood that with the
substantial 7 increase. of ; business, the;
Palace will carry' out a number of im
portant-improvements, and extensions, 7,
and the ratio of gross-profits will |be
somewhat reduced ; during. the coming
year, since; the store's management' be
lieves in the principle of selling cheap
er as the sales" grow larger. '■"-'
With the increase 7of accommoda
tions, demanded by the larger trade,
the Palace - Company has planned -to
carry a much more complete stock dur
ing the coming year, and the buying or
ders, some of which are already placed,
are on 7a " scale which to * the . layman
seems stupendous, f many of
the smaller ■ orders, - each large enough
.to . supply J the demand of 3 the trade at
many smaller' stores,twill"undoubtedly
have to be duplicated before the season
is over. : .7 .-. "-.■.--•': v *. -
7 It is a , noteworthy, fact, \ and " one
which has ' caused 7 much comment
among the-clothing trade, that the St.
Paul and 7 Minneapolis B stores '- of this
house sell more . clothing- to men and
boys,. than any other concern in the
world .in "cities, of one and a half mil
lion or less population. •■.."'■'
With the broad-minded policy which
has always governed the firm's dealings
with the *: public in the past, however,'
this success is not jtoj be wondered at,
and the achieved success of the Palace:
In the • past is evidently 5 but earnest of
what may be "expected of it in the fu
ture—a success. gained. through - liber
ality . and the• strict : adherence to the
selling of 7 goods, absolutely on their
merits.-■ ■ ; . .7;:

His Attorney-Says Indictment
was not Regular.
. Dr. A. "A. Ames' appeal-was argued
iin - the .^supreme court " yesterday, and
; for/nearly" two hours Frank :M.-Nye, of
:Minneapolis, attacked the "' indictment
under _ which the 5 former ';mayor .was;
convicted and the proceedings by which
that conviction was secured. 2 Mr. Nye
first assailed the indictment on the
ground that' it was; not \ direct,' but was
uncertain *2 and I indefinite; 7 and ;* that - it
'did riot specify any one crime, but as
serted a ; combination of a number ;of
crimes. He argued that the indictment
did not; assert any public. offense but
that - even 7 should the " court 7disagree
with : that contention t there would still
remain the objection that more than
one offense was alleged. -
' ' Mr. : Nye further submitted that even
though'the indictment had charged but
one offense, the ; state throughout the
trial, 7 against the protest of 7 the de
defense, had tried the case on a num
ber ;of different crimes. The* indict
ment, | he "* said/ charged the * defendant
with bribery In having received $600
from six women who were specifically;
named . and from "other women un
known ito ; the grand jury." He . denied
the right jof j the * grand ' jury ": to "base an
, indictment or any part jof j such an in
strument j upon the acts of, persons who
were not known; to the jury. or who
could not be named. !. He contested the
assertion of ; the state that, because the
money 7 given to ~ Gardner 7at different
times and at; different places was all
turned over. to Ames at ; once, the col
lection" of - this I money constituted one
'. County Attorney F. C. Boardman, of
•Hennepin, argued the case for the state,
but his address jto ! the court was brief.:
He asserted that the indictment charg
ed only : the one crime of bribery, and
that ' the whole series of;: payments !by
the. various women constituted but a
single trasactlon "under one agreement
and understanding. -.
