WILLIS TO TEST LAW Surrenders Bankruptcy Client to Federal Authorities A test as to the constitutionality of certain sections of the bankruptcy law is the practical meaning of the pro cedure of John W. Willis, attorney for Morris Edelstein, who will surrender liis client to the federal authorities. where he is wanted under a charge of perjury in connection with his petition in bankruptcy. Attorney Willis will immediately at tempt to secure the release of Mr. Edelstein on a writ of habeas corpus, on tho ground that the law provides that no testimony given by a person in bankruptcy proceedings can be used iigrainst him criminally. Mi. Edelstell) testified at the hear ing: before the referee in support of his petition to be declared a bank rupt, that goods which had been Shipped by him to Eveleth in Septem ber, 1903, did not revert to his posses sion the next December. It is claim ed by the federal authorities that as a matter of fact the identiacl goods ship ped to Eveleth did, as a matter of fact, come into the possession of Mr. Edel stein. and that Mr. Edelstein commit ted perjury when he swore that they did not. The legal question involved In the »>ase is whether the evidence tending to show the fact of perjury was secured through the hearing of Mr. Edelstein. If such is the case the contention of Attorney Willis is that his client can not be prosecuted under the provisions of the bankruptcy law. CAPITOL ELEVATORS TO HAVE NEW DOORS Glazed Glass Prevents Operators See ing the Waiting Crowds Because there is more or less trouble resulting to the elevator conductors nnd to prospective elevator passengers because of the glazed glass doors and fronts to the elevator shafts in the new rapitol building, these will probably be done away with in the course of a few weeks and will be supplanted by bronze grill work doors and fronts. The opaque glass is considered quite the thing in the swell buildings of the east, but here, where only two passen ger elevators are in use, and these two are in widely separated portions of the building, the system has not worked out well. It is impossible for con ductors to tell whether or not passen gers are waiting for them on any floor unless the door is opened, and people often experience inconvenient delays waiting for an elevator which is at the top of the building when they suppose that it is at the bottom, or vice versa.

FATHER Of HARTMANN BELIEVES 60TTSCHALK KILLED HIS SON Charles Hartmann Faces Man Held for Murder of Christian Schindeldecker and Accuses Him of Making Away With Son—Police Will Investigate, but Will Not Give Up Their Chase for the Missing Man- Suspect Brought to Head quarters, Refuses to Admit Anything Beyond the Fact That He Had Been Fishing With Missing Man Is the dead body of Joseph A. Hart mann, the lad the police name as the accomplice of Edward Gottschalk in the murder of Christian H. Schindeldecker. burled in the Icy waters of Pickerel lake? This is a question which came home to Chief O'Connor and his men with startling directness when yesterday morning Charles Hartmann, father of the missing boy, came to police head quarters with the accusation that Gott schalk had rid himself, last Monday, of a dangerous witness to the Schindel decker murder by pushing the boy into a hole in the ice of the lake. Hartmann disappeared from his home on the Monday following the murder. He said that he was going fishing when he left. Witnesses have reported to the police that they saw him and Gott schalk walking towards Pickerel lake the Sunday before, and the two had been in the habit of going there to gether to fish. Gottschalk returned to his home that night. So far as is known to the po lice Hartmann has not been seen in St. Paul since «.hat time. Yesterday noon Gottschalk was brought from the county jail, where he has been since Sunday morning and was confronted in police headquarters by Charles Hartmann, the father, who openly accused him of murdering his son Joe Hartmann. The situation was arranged with a view to bringing ouf. to the utmost dramatic possibilities in the hope that the nerve of the accused murderer might break and that he would betray himself it he were guilty of the charge. Gottschalk Is Careful Before the awful charge of murder ing- his alleged confederate and tool in crime, coming as it did so close upon the heels of the first charge of mur dering Schindeldecker. the West Sev enth street butcher, Gottschalk main tained the same coldness and indiffer ence that has marked his attitude ever since he was arrested. He calmly de nied the charge and said that he knew nothing whatever of the whereabouts of young Hartmann. Aside from acknowledging that he was fishing with Hartmann on the Sunday following the murder of.Schin deldecker he admitted nothing, not even that he went fishing with the lad on the next Monday. Interrogations and pleadings from the anxious father resulted alike. Ever since his arrest Gottschalk has carefully studied his every reply that he might not incriminate himself by talking. Yesterday he held to this purpose, and at last he was ordered taken back to his cell, further ques tioning being evidently useless. On the way back to the jail, in charge of a guard of detectives. Gottschalk's temper, which up to that time had been remarkably well under control, broke all bounds and, while his black eyes blazed fire, he exclaimed: " 1 — you fellows, you want to hang me, don't you? Well, go ahead, I don't care. I—" The prisoner checked himself as sud denly as he started in his outburst and, grinding his teeth with rage, resumed the moody, morose silence which has marked his brief career in jail. The elder Harttnann, while not ad mitting that his son was concerned In the murder of Ohristiaji H. Schindel decker, is set in the belief that the reason Joe has not returned home is that he is dead, pushed under the ice by Gottschalk. He thinks that Joe knew something of the murder, some thing which Gottschalk feared he might reveal and so that way was taken of silencing the tongue. Police Take No Chances While the police give a great deal of credence to the theory held by the elder Hartmaiin, they do not. consider it seriously enough as yet to relinquish CROWDS PAY TAXES Hundreds of Citizens Barely Beat Time Limit The procrastinating instincts of the human race was demonstrated yes terday the last day in which personal property taxes could be paid without the Imposition of a 10 per cent penalty, by a large number of people who crowded the treasurer's office up to 9 o'clock last night, the last minute at which personal taxes could be paid. Over 1,300 people paid their personal taxes Monday, and an equal, if not greater, number yesterday. For the accommodation of those wno were em ployed during the day and unable to reach the treasurer's office it was an nounced some days ago that the office would be open both Monday and Tues day until 9 o'clock in the evening. People were not slow tfl take advan tage of the delay offered, and the busiest time of the day at the treas urer's office both Monday and Tuesday was between 7 and 9 o'clock in tho evening. Statement of Gross Earnings State Auditor Iverson yesterday re ceived the detailed statement of the gross earnings of the Great Northern railway company upon business done during 1904 within the state of Minne sota. The statement places the total earnings for the year at 517.322Jii.57, making the tax due the state $519,- C 94.35. This is a decrease of $450,392.16 under the earnings of 1903. THE ST. PAUL GLOBE. WEDNESDAY. MARCH 1. 1905 '"• ■£% EDWARD GOTTSCHALK Man Held for the Murder of Christian H. Schfndeldecker their search for the young man alive. Circulars with photographs of Hart mann and his description have been sent to all of the neighboring large cities, and the chief Is confident that if Hartmann Is alive his capture will re sult In a very short time. The theory of the elder Hartmann seems to be worthy of credence, for the question cannot but arise, why did Hartmann disappear, even if he were guilty of the crime? Gottschalk, whom the police believe to have insti gated the crime.^was more guilty and was likewise an older man in crime, with no ties to bind him to St. Paul. Why then, reason those Interested in the solution of the mystery, should Hartmann so mysteriously disappear as though the earth had swallowed him up, while Gottschalk, who is cer tainly guilty if Hartmann is, continued in St. Paul at the same residence as ever, believing himself safe from cap ture? If Sehindeledcker was murdered by the two men, each received an equal share, It being considered, as the po lice believe, that Gottschalk had about $40 in his possession immediately afterwards. While it is true that the hammer found by the side of the mur dered man and so positively identified as one which was formerly owned by Charles Hartmann Jr.. a brother of Joe Hartmann, the police have'a wit ness who will swear that she had often seen Cottschalk in the possession of the same hammer, so that this point as •i cause of excessive fear on Hart mann's part is" removed. Is Hartmann Under Ice The question of whether Joe Hart mann is alive and a fugitive from jus tice, is dead, his body entombed in Pickerel lake, can only be answered by the location of Hartmann alive or by the finding of his dead body when the ice goes out In the late spring. A search for the body at the present time would be practically Impossible. The surface of the ice is dotted with numerous holes cut by fishermen, and in any of these the body of young Hartmann could have - easily been pushed by the larger and more power ful Gottschalk, whether the lad were dead or alive at the time. If the belief of "Charles Hartmann, that Gottschalk took his son fishing on that Monday, <the?r- watched- his - opportunity and pushed him under* the ice, the melting of tire ice can only come to prove the crime.. . . • . One of the most convincing pieces of evidence against Gottschalk at the present time was materially strength ened yesterday when Chemist Lehnen reported to Chief O'Connor that tho dark stains upon the overalls found in Gottschalk's rooms by the police were stains made by human blood.' He re ported that the stains were undoubt edly of late making, but that they had already been subjected to the action of water in an evident attempt to wash them away. - Blood Stained Overalls These blood stained overalls found In ■ dresser drawer in Gottschalk's looms were considered one of the strongest pieces of circumstantial evi dence against the prisoner. Chief O'Connor yesterday received a brief report from the Omaha police concerning Gottschalk. While he was known to them there as a man who had been frequently in minor troubles, he had never, so far as they had been able to ascertain, served a term in the penitentiary. Nor could his meas urements or photographs be found in the Bertillon records or in the rogues' gallery, where were the pictures of all the convicts who had served time in the Nebraska penitentiary. So if the reported declaration of Gottschalk's wife be true and he is an ex-convict, it must have been in some other state. Inquiries concern ing the previous record of Gottschalk are being sent to all cities which he is known to have visited, and the po lice, now in possession of Mrs. Gotts chalk's address In the west, are en deavoring to obtain from her some facts concerning her husband's past. LABORER ISCRUSHEO Derrick Pole Falls Onto Help- less Working Man Eric Johnson, 408 Rosabel street, a laborer employed in the excavating work at Third and Jackson streets, was perhaps fatally injured yesterday afternoon by a falling derrick pole. He was taken to the city hospital in the police ambulance, where it was found that both legs were fractured. l\ is also feared that Johnson was in ternally injured. A new derrick was put into opera tion for the first time yesterday and the heavy pole attached to the lifting apparatus had been raised about twen ty feet from the ground when some thing gave way and the pole crashed to the ground. Johnson was standing directly underneath, boring holes in the rock for blasting purposes, and was struck by the pole as it fell to the ground.

ASK FOR CUARDIAN Petition Filed in Court Reveals Life Drama An attempt by the relatives to subvert the last wishes of Edward Olson, de ceased, and of his widow. Caroline Olson, is alleged in the petition tiled by Mathilda Thomson for the appointment of a guar dian for her aunt, Caroline Ol*"ti. The matter was up for hearing before Judge Bazille in the probate court yester day. The petitioner for the appointment of a guardian alleges that Mrs. Olson is TO years old and totally incapable of man aging the property left her by her hus band, of the value of $6,000 or $7,000. The facts as set forth by Mrs. Olson indicate that many years ago she and her husband adopted a child without com plying with the legal requirements neces sary to Insure direct Inheiitance. The matter was never taken notice of until when on his deathbed Mr. Olson called his wife and friends and dictated a state ment to the effect that he wished it .to be understood that he had adopted the child and that she be entitled to the same rights in the property which would be ac corded to his own child. This fact having come to the attention of the relatives of the dead man. it is claimed that before Mrs. Olson could se cure possession of ihe property through the ordinary channels of the probate court, a petition wav filed by the relatives ask ing for the appointment of a guardian. The petitioner, and other heirs, do not hesitate to say that the action was insti tuted to thwart any plans which Mrs. Olson might have for transferring the property to her adopted daughter. The hearing was continued until next Thursday.

S&j&yr&tr*** box, 25a SMILES OF BABY MOVE POLICE JUDGE Jimmy Cogeny Only Used Pitchfork to Build His Mini ature Port Arthur Jimmy Coger,y was arrested for pet ty larceny. He stole a hayfork, ac cording to the complaint. Jimmy says he commandeered it as a military ne cessity. The implement was used in building earthworks for the defense of a putative Port Arthur. The boy was 10 years old. freckled, blue eyed and brave. He faced the judge without a tremor. There had been an awful fuss about that hay fork, which is Just as good a hayfork now as it ever was. and Jimmy knew that he had done wrong. He was de corously repentant, but in no sense crushed. His head was up and his hands in hiß trousers pockets when he stared into Judge Finehout's glasses. And a few feet away sat Jimmy's stepmother, with Jimmy' little stepsis ter, 18 months old. The little girl is a beauty. She couldn't understand what all those men wanted with her brother Jimmy, for she knew him to be a good fellow all down the line. Hadn't he built blockhouses for her and let her knock them down as fast as they were constructed? Hadn't he ridden, her miles on his sled? Wasn't he the sort of fellow a girl ought to be decent to? Perhaps these reflections caused baby> Margaret to stare coldly and unsmil inply at the court, the fat policeman and the prosecuting attorney. Perhaps she was trying to comprehend what it was all about when Judge Finehout lectured Jimmy or, the evil of using other people's trenching tools to de fend his fortifications. At all events, when the boy had taken his lecture and acknowledged the supremacy of the probation officer, he returned to his Mai beside the baby, serious of de meanor, quite evidently sad at heart. And then the baby stared at him. Why didn't Jimmy snuggle up to her and make love to her as he was wont to do? Why was Jimmy so preoccupied? And just then Jimmy caught a glimose of her serious little face. He grinned. Kaby Margaret crowed aloud, and her small round face wreathed it self in a sunburst of delight. Baby Margaret's little arms twined themselves about Jimmy's neck, and she nestled her baby face against his coat. Jimmy forgot the stern face of the judge, the cynical front of the bailiff, the stony aspect of the clerk. He only saw hi." baby sisi.r who loved him and whom he loved. And the court was busy with the tab. and the court officers were busier with their respective J business, while baby Margaret cooed and crowed anil fondled the freckled face of Jimmy, petty larcenist.
