Railroad Laborer Dies of Acute
A coholism
Michael Haley, foreman of a Railroad
construction gant, died suddenly of
acute alcoholism early yesterday morn
ing. His body was removed from the
Maple Leaf hotel on East Third street
to the county morgue, 'and is there
h Waiting the coming of relatives or
li it-nds to claim and bury it.
Haley had been»drinking heavily of
late and at midnight Thursday he was
found by William Bowman, night clerk
«>f the Maple Leaf, parading the halls.
He appeared to be on the verge of de
lirium tremens, and the clerk hurried
Haley into his room and summoned a
Bician. The doctor administered
Bedativefl and departed, thinking thai
nothing serious ailed the man.
At 5:30 o'clock Bowman went to Ha
ley's room tc see how the man was
petting along. Bowman found Hale}
sitting, fully dressed, in his chair. His
eyes were closed and he appeared to
be sleeping. Bowman shook him by
tli" shoulder, intending to tell him to
get into bed. His shake met with no
response and a hurried examination
convinced him that the man was dead,
a]though the body was still warm.
The police were summoned and they,
in turn called Coroner A. W. Miller,
who took charge of the body and order
ed it to the county morgue. There an
autopsy conducted last evenina re
vealed the fact that death was due to
acute alcoholism.
But litt'e is known of Haley. For a
number of years he worked during the
summer time in the construction de
partments of various railroads and In
variably spent his winters in St. Paul.
He was unmarried and a man about 50
years of age. Nothing has yet devel
oped to enlighten the police as to his
birthplace or the residence of rela

This is an increase over the similar

Loses His Suit Against Gas
Light Company
Judge Lewis yesterday returned a
decision in the case of the state of
Minnesota ox rel. H. M. Comfort vs.
the St. Paul Gas Light company and
the Edison Electric Light company,
and the officers of the two companies,
finding for the respondents in every
point of contention, and assessing the
costs of the action upon the relator,
The action was one tried during the
February term of court, and it attract
ed a good deal of attention at that
time. Mr. Comfort began proceedings
to force the gas company to furnish
him with electric current to be resold
by him to parties living in the imme
diate neighborhood of his home. He
had forme, ly entered into a contract
with the company, and had set up a
motor and other generating machinery
in his home to enlarge and transmit
the current so that it might be used
for lighting purposes in the homes of
The company became suspicious of
the amount of electricity really used
and the amount which the meter in
Comfort's home showed him to be us
ing. A check meter was accordingly
placed on the line and results tallied
by the two meters, although both were
correct in their measurements, were so
widely different that the company at
once refused to longer supply Comfort
with electric current.
In his decision Judge Lewis finds
that the relator is not entitled to a
contract with the respondent compa
nies, as he had willfully and continu
ally violated the terms of the contract
first entered into. He further finds
that the costs of the proceedings must
be born by the relator.
Stephen Fay Takes No Chances
With Legislature
The trials of one man who tried to
get the legislature to reimburse him
for an alleged wrong, was set forth in
a picturesque letter to Atty. Gen.
Young yesterday. He says that when
he tried to get pay for property wrong
fully taken from him at Moorhead he
was sent to the workhouse.
The letter in which the man tells of
his wrongs is as follows:
Belgrade. Minn.. March 28.—arty gen
eral, st. paul. Minn sir i have a complaint
against the citty of Mooiehead minn. The
police crippled me and drove me out of

of Christ, Moses and th<? prophets, and all
the nations, tribes and clans.
so 1 pray you to lift your finger and do
something about it. I want to get paid for

Blind Pig Trial Will Be Long
Drawn Out
The trial of John Guarnera, charged
by the Merriam park citizens' league
with conducting a blind pig at 1957
University avenue, occupied the entire
day of a jury before Judge Finehout
iv municipal court yesterday, and when
the case was adjourned at 5 o'clock
until Monday morning, the introduction
of evidence by the city prosecutor had
not been completed.
The balance of the jury needed to
try the case was secured at an early
hour in the morning and the introduc
tion of evidence was immediately be
gun, but it was a slow process, for ob
jections to questions and answers were
so numerous that most of the time was
spent in arguing and deciding them.
The prosecution is being conducted by
Kmii W. Helmes, city prosecutor, as
sisted by D. W. Doty, attorney for the
citizens* league, while Stan Donnelly
has charge of the defense.
Before the introduction of testimony
was begun at the morning session At
torney Donnelly made a motion that
the action against Guarnera be dismiss
ed on the grounds that the case, having
been begun in the court of a justice of
the peace, should be tried there. Judge
Finehout ruled that his court was the
equivalent of a justice court in the
matter on trial.
While this was a victory, in a way
for the prosecution, the defense won a
couple scarcely less substantial points
when the court sustained their objec
tions to the introductipn as evidence
of the beer and whisky alleged to
have been found In Guarnera's place
when it was raided Oct. 15. 1904 and
entirely ruled out the testimony of.
Rev. John Fryckberg, pastor of the St?
Anthony Park M. E. church, relative to
a visit paid by him to Guarnera's place
of business during the month of April
preceding the raid. The ruling was
made upon the grounds that too much
time had elapsed between the visit and
the raid.
Chris Chrisman of Minneapolis, a
private detective hired by the league,
testified to having visited Guarnera's
place of business, a restaurant and
small store, five days before the raid
and to having bought two glasses of
beer and a drink of whisky. Constable
W. B. Boyd, who made the raid and
Attorney D. W. Doty, who accompanied
him. testified to having seized sixteen
cases of bver, two cases of nonintoxico,
two tea pots filled with whisky and a
number of jugs and bottles.
The adjournment until Monday was
taken for the reason that Saturday is
an exceptionally busy day with many
of the jurymen.
Henry Johnson, an escaped convict,
was arrested in "Louisiana yesterday,
and Gov. Johnson has issued a requisi
tion for him. He was sent to Stlllwater
(ora three years' term for ar box car
robbery in Kandiyoht county. Two
years ago he was paroled, and imme

Employes In County and City
Building Want Salaries
Yesterday a petition signed by twen
ty-six employes of the court house
and city hall presented a petition to
the joint commission governing that
building, asking that they be granted
each a raise of $5 per month in salary.
A sufficient number of the commis
sioners was not present to constitute
a' quorum*, and the petition was ac
cordingly laid over until Monday
morning, when the regular meeting
will be held.
The petition is simply worded and
couched in diplomatic terms, but the
commissioners who have watched the
situation in the court house say that
they read between the lines the no si
bilities of dire trouble. They see vi
sions of County Auditor Krahmer
sweeping out his own office, and City
Engineer Rundlett conducting an ele
vator, and Dr. Ohage pushing the
court house lawn mower. Tor the peti
tion tarries the names of all of the
elevator operators, janitors and gar
deners. They want $5 more per month
and the budget has been made up in
such a way that the only possibility
through which they can get it is by
some rapid and expert juggling of fig
The trouble all started when Dumont
Segers. the painter employed at the
court house, was given a $5 raise in
salary early in March. Formerly he
was receiving $60 per month. The in
crease made his salary $65. The ele
vator operators, janitors, gardener and
telephone operator are all receiving
$55 per month. They say that the
commission should not play favorites
in the matter of salary raises and that
$5 looks as good to them as to the man
with the paint brush.
While they do not openly talk of
striking in case their request is turn
ed down, as it is almost certain to be.
there is a determined tone In their
voices and a determined look in their
eyes when they say that they think it
Is up to the commission to make good
all around.

Hamline Rumpus Made Light

Storberg, sophomores, and G. R. Dunn
and W. H. Collett, freshmen, as the re

on the campus of Hamline university
yesterday morning.
While a temporary feeling of re

students by the suspension of the four
students by Dean L. H. Batchelder.
which was expressed by a general ab
sence from recitations, yet the idea of
a general strike on the part of the stu
dents is laughed at bj- members of the
The cause of the unpleasantness be
tween the student body and th« f.u
ulty, arose over the usual yearly cus
tom of testing the right of the fresh
men to wear their class caps to chapel.
Yesterday was the first time they had
worn them this year, and the sopho
mores, in accordance with an ancient
and honorable custom, felt it their duty
to remove such caps from the heads ot
offending freshmen. This could not be
accomplished without a struggle, and
It was during the general mlxup over
these inoffending caps that Dean
Batcheldef marched into the fray and
endeavored by the use of his voice
alone to separate the combatants. It
is understood that the four students
susj>ended were more tenacious than
their comrades, and that the voice of
authority did not ctaim their attention
as soon as faculty IrfsM of strict obe
dience would dictate.
The suspension of these students
was immediately communicated to
their fellow •scrappers." who imme
diately resolved themselves into on<>
cohesive body to bear down upon the
faculty and engage their reinstatement.
George Dunn, son of R. (\ Dunn
claimed last night that there was noth
ing serious that occurred. He refused
to discuss the situation, but claimed
that great ado had been made over
nothing. It is probable that the sus

lifted as soon as President Hridgman
arrives home.
Judge Kelly Sustains Decision
of Probate Court
If a husband and wife live in Wis
consin until they agree to disagree and
then the wife goes across the river into
.Minnesota to live, the husband loses
all claim upon the wife's estate, and
in the incident of her death he has no
claims upon the estate other than such
bequests as she may voluntarily make
to him in a will. Judge Kelly, in the
district court, yesterday handed down
an opinion sustaining the decision of
Judgf Bazille in the will contest case
of Jacob A. Anderson, who sought to
obtain $500 from the $4,000 estate left
by his deceased wife. Mrs. Jorgina M.
Mr. and Mrs. Anderson had resided
in Deer Park. Wis.. until a short time
before her death, when they had dis
agreed, and Mrs. Anderson had left
home and come to St. Paul to live
with their children. She died here in
February. 1904. leaving all the prop
erty to the children. Under the laws
of the state of Minnesota the husband
is entitled to $500 in cash from his
wife's estate, in case she dies, together
with all of the personal property. Tho
laws of Wisconsin contain no such
Anderson brought suit to obtain $500
from the estate, and Judge Bazille de
cided that as the husband's residence
was in Wisconsin his wife's domicile
was legally in that state at the time of
her death, and that, therefore, the
estate came under the jurisdiction of
the Wisconsin probate laws.

Great Interest Shown Compels
Manager to Limit Territory
to Northwest
Owing 1 to the widespread interest
which is being- taken inTheGlobe's
proverb contest, it is necessary to an
nounce a new rule, which, it had been
hoped would not be necessary. The
rule is announced with this issue, and
Is designed only to protect the people
in the territory where the paper is
read every day.
This is the plan decided on: Only
those contestants who reside in Min
nesota. North and South Dakota, Wis
consin, lowa and Montana, will be al
lowed to enter into the contest by
which The Globe will give away
$800 in cash in this educational con
This has been made necessary by
reason of the fact that the contest has
proved much more popular and con
testants have come fnun a wider scope
of country than the editors anticipated
when the contest began. It was
thought that the contest would natu
rally limit itself to the territory which
the new rule covers.
The Globe is conducting this con
test for home people, for readers of
The Globe, and wants them to reap
all the benefits. It is only the desrre
of The Globe to give the benefit of
this contest to its friends that makes
this new rule necessary.
One word is necessary regarding the
manner in which the answers are to
!•«• s«'iu in. With at least fifty an
swers from ea<h contestant the task of
counting the answers assumes alarm
ing proportions. It will be an immense
task to count and tabulate this im
mense list of answers, and certify the
correct returns. Owing to this fact it
has become necessary to insist on !• a
sonable neatness in sending in answers.
The wording of the proverbs must be
strictly correct, and any misspelled
words or a wrong construction of the
proverb, may be sufficient to defeat the
Write plainly when you send in an
swers. This is also a precaution that
must be observed, as in tabulating the
hundreds of, thousands of answers no
time can be lost on a single one. It
would be better if the answers could
be typewritten on the blank, but this
will not be insisted on.
In sending in answers do not rolr
them up or fold them. Send them in
laid out smooth, and all in proper
order that no time may be lost when
the count is being made. By a strict
observance of this rule the contestants
will enable the judges to count and
tabulate the answers much more
quickly and to announce the results.
