THE WORK OF THE STATE LEGISLATURE CODE IS REPORTED OUT TO THE SENATE Measure and Its Amendments Will Be Considered After noons When the senate convened at 3 p. m. yesterday, after the noon recess, Sen it ior Somerville, chairman of the ju diciary committee, addressing Presi dent Jones, said: "I have a little report to make." As he spoke the senator from Brown walked to the desk, bearing the revised code, the 1,200 house amendments and £00 more amencTments adopted by the «t-nate judiciary committee. The sen ate amendments fill 182 pages. Senator Somerville moved that the report of his committee be adopted and that the bill known as house file No. 43 be read for a second time and placed at the head of general orders. This motion met with opposition from Senators Morgan and Laybourn, who protested against the code being permitted to block all other legisla tion. Senator Laybourn suggested that the senate might consider the code during tho afternoons and transact its general business in the forenoons. "We don't want all our bills inter fered with," explained Senator Lay bdurh, "on account of that very doubt ful measure known as the code." Senator Somerville's motion to place the code at the head of general orders prevailed by a vote of 45 to 5, those op posing the motion being Senators Buck. Laybburn, McNamee, Morgan and Pugh. It will doubtless be taken up this afternoon by the committee of the whole. The senators then resumed the gen eral orders calendar where it had dropped it in the forenoon and con sidered all the bills listed, twenty-six in number. Fifteen were recommended to pass by the committee of the whole without debate.- The measure of most generai inter est was* Senator Wilson's bill, making it compulsory for children between the ages of 8 and 18 years to attend school for a certain period each year. The bill raises the age limit from 16 to 18 years, because, as Senator Wilson 'xplalned, under the present law, chil dren of 16 finding attendance upon school no longer compulsory, willfully stay away and roam the streets at the most critical period of their lives, when more boys and girls are ruined than at any other age. Senator Johnson objected to the bill, paying that he didn't think farming communities wanted it, and suggested Senator Wilson make it apply only to Ramsey, Hennepin and St. Louis coun ties. Nobody indorsed this sentiment, and *the bill was recommended to pass. Notwithstanding the objection of Senator Fitzpatrick, the house bill of Representative Hugo of Duluth, giving to an Incorporated Bethel society ex clusive disposition of children born under its custody and abandoned by their mothers for six months, was rec ommended to pass, Senator Fitzpat rick'a motion to. indefinitely postpone the measure being lost by a vote of 14 to 16. Senator Peterson's bill making the bondsmen of saloonkeepers responsible for the conduct of the saloons was rec ommended to pass. The senate adjourned until 10 a. m. today. limn I i^faCiTtVT^il flow To coo/tt7~\ In whaterer way _n)E- Macaroni is to bs cook- .fZ%gk • ed, the most important ttf^PrSKi' part of the preparation tMtviijß ' is in the boiling.

AUDITORS ON RACK IN MINORITY REPORT Dissenters Want Timber Tres pass Cases Brought to Courts The minority report of the house public accounts committee made its ap pearance yesterday. It takes the op posite extreme from the report of the majority submitted Tuesday. :ind holds that the former state auditors are cul pable in their treatment of pine land trespass cases. It commends the for mer public examiner, S. T. Johnson, for his investigations of the auditor's of fice and says that it was his duty to call attention to apparent violations of the law by the auditors In settling trespass cases for less than the amounts legally demanded. It Is urged that the cases be resubmitted to the governor and attorney general to pro ceed with them as their best judg ment demands. Minority Report When the report had been read, M. S. Cail, one of the signers of the minor ity report, secured an order for its l»i inting in the house Journal, and both repcrts will be considered by the house at the same time. The minority report, which is signed by R. H. Jefferson, M. S. Carl and William C. Fraser, follows: First—We diligently attended meetings of the committee and in every case heard the evidence submitted and from that evidence we find as a fact that the pub lic examiner's report as made to the gov ernor Is substantially correct, and that the records carry out the criticisms made by him. Second —We find that in a great many Instances the law, which required double or treble amount of damages to be col lected from trespassers on state timber land, has not been enforced. Third—The law in regard to bark marks for timber sold has in many instances not been complied with. Fourth—The claim that the state has suffered no loss by the noncompllance of the law in regard to trespasses upon state land is not in our judgment borne out by the record, and we are of the opinion that the laws enacted by the legislature and signed by the governor are binding upon all of the people of the state, and should be enforced by those who are elected to enforce them. Fifth—ln conclusion we would recom mend that these timber trespasses and mineral lease cases be resubmitted to the governor and attorney general with di rections that they take such action In the premises as they in their judgment may think best, and that these officers be au thorized to employ such assistants to carry on such litigation as they may see fit to institute. In a number of cases there has no doubt only been a technical violation of the law, and the state has suffered no financial loss, but In other cases we are of the opinion that the in terest of the school fund has suffered by lax enforcement of the law. hence we are of the opinion that the law enforcing power of the state should be asked to take charge of this whole matter. When the report was under consid eration yesterday, M. J. O'Laughlin, the only Democratic member of the com mittee, rose to a question of personal privilege. He had been quoted by Chairman Dowling and the newspapers as having signed the majority report. Mr. O'Laughlin denied that he had signed the report. Chairman Dowling agreed that nope of the members had signed the ma jority report, but he declared that Mr. O'Laughlin had moved that the report be adopted, and that Mr. Wyman of the committee had seconded the mo tion to adopt the report of the sub committee. 'That is true in part," the Wabasha member said, "I moved to strike out the Mork amendment. I was tired of the whole thing. It had grown obnox ious to me. and I wanted to get it out of the way." Dowling Stands Pat Chairman Dowling insisted that the records of the meeting show that the Wabasha member moved the adoption of the report. The report of the ma jority appeared in the house journal yesterday, and it is said that several thousand copies of the report will be circulated among Republicans of the state. The minority report, it is said, will also be generally circulated. "I do not care what the house does," Mr. Carl said yesterday. "But I know what the people of the state think of the majority report. They consider it a plain whitewash of the facts, and will take the minority report as the truth of the investigation." It is said that two drastic sections, condemning in strong terms the re ports of the public examiner as not being justiiied by the results of the in vestigation, were offered to the com mittee by Burdette Thayer and R. L. Mork, but were rejected by the com mittee as being too radical. New House Bills H. F. No. 864: By Towns and Coun ti»-s—< Substitute for H. F.

ENGINEERS PROTEST AGAINST FULTON BILL Twin City Delegation Objects to Plan For Boiler Inspection A delegation of Twin City engineers appeared before the general legislation committee yesterday and protested against the passage of the Fulton bill, providing for the appointment of a chief boiler inspector and nine deputy inspectors. They said that the bill is impractical. A Minneapolis member of the delegation called attention to an alleged situation in the state by which incompetent engineers are said to be given chief engineer's licenses in the country districts of the state and come to the Twin Cities to compete with men qualified by education and expe rience to hold first grade certificates. The Fulton bill may be amended by the committee to meet the desires of the engineers. Wants Home Grown Music The legislature is asked to request the state fair managers to cancel a contract with Liberati s bund in a resolution intro duced in the house yesterday by John G. Lcnnon of Hennepin. The Lennon resolu tion asks that preference be given to mv- Kicmns in the state at the state fairs. Ward Stone of Morris, a friend of the fair mnnaßers, gave notice of debate and the resolution went over. THE ST. PAUL GLOBE, THURSDAY, APRIL 6, 1905 FAVORS INCREASE Of ALDERMEN'S SALARY Ramsey Delegation Recom mends Raise for St. Paul Officials St. Paul aldermen were given $800 salaries by the vote of the Ramsey county house delegation yesterday. The Rowe bill, providing that the aldermen may vote themselves $1,000 salaries, will be. reported to the house today amended to read $800. Not without r protest from two or three members did the delegation agret to the raise from $100 a year. Repre sentative John F. Solb was the princi pal speaker. "The aldermen made their fight be fore the charter commission, and lost." he said. "The commission was afraid to include the aldermen's raise in the amendments because they felt it would result in killing the amendments. This increase means an increase of $700 a year for seme twenty aldermen and as semblymen. It means an increase of $14,000 a year to this city in salaries. I am not opposed to the aldermen be ing given more money for their work, but let them go before the people ami make it an issue. Let them fight for the salaries as we are doing for ours." Rohland Advocates Increase Otto Rohland, alderman from the Fifth ward, appeared before the dele gation and urged that some increase be given the aldermen. He said it made no difference to him. as his term was about to expire and he would not be a candidate : £am. He had paid a man $60 a month to do his work since he had been In the council, and could not afford to abandon his private busi ness for $100 a year. A subcommittee, tvhich had the Rowe bill in charge, reported a substitute fixing the compensation at $300 a year. Mr. Rowe voted against this report, for he said he had just come from v group of aldermen who said they would rather see his bill killed than accept $300. They would make an independent fight for the original amount if his bill were out of the way. The $300 amend ment was killed, four members of the delegation voting against It, and then the salaries were fixed at $800. This is the figure nt which Minneapolis al dermen are compensated, and members of the delegation said that a general law fixing the amount at less would be defeated by the Hennepln dele gation. Five members of the delega tion voted for the $800 basis. Mr. Selb alone voted in the negative. Favcr Water Bonds Senator John C. Hardy's bill, author izing a bond issue of $500,000 for the St. Paul water board with? which to improve .its water supply system, was recommended to pass. Gen. M. D. Flower, a Republican member of the delegation, paid the Democratic water board a high compliment on Its effi ciency and said it has the most suc cessfully managed municipal plant in the country. Selb and James R. Hickey voted In the negative on the bond prop osition, owing, they said, to opposition by their constituents. The Ramsey delegation yesterday, with but one dissenting vote, recom mended J. T. Mannix's bill to provide a 1500 license for fortune tellers, palm ists, clairvoyants and seers for indefi nite postponement. "I would be untrue to my trust as the representative of the Fourth ward if I did not move this bill for indefinite postponement," said Representative James R. Hickey. "I suppose that none of my constit uents are specially interested," said Gen. M. D. Flower. "But I must vote for this bill in the interest of public morals." Gen. Flower was Its only friend in the delegation. BACK ON CALENDAR Ware's Two Cent Fare Measure Gets Away From Committee Contending factions in the house yes terday were split in twain over the dis position of the Ware Bill, making a maximum 2 cent railroad fare. The bill by a vive voce vote had been taken from the calendar and sent back to the railroads committee Tuesday. Yester day \V. W. Bardwell of Hennepin asked that the vote be reconsidered and the bill resume its place on the calendar. E. E. Adams spoke for the bill. He said that it had been recommended to pass by the railroads and judiciary commit tees and by the house in committee of the whole. There was some prelimi nary sparring on the part of the op ponents of the bill, but on the roll call the house, which had gone under the operations of a call of the house, voted to return the' bill to the calendar 61 to 37. Had it not been that nearly all the members of the railroad committee vot ed with the friends of the bill the mo tion would have been lost. Those who are opposed to the bill say that it will not pass when, it is reached on the cal endar. BILL IS SENT BACK Wyman's Insurance Measure May Not Survive With its author strenuously opposing Its reference again to committee, the house yesterday sent the Wyman in surance bill back to the committee on insurance. A public hearing will be held by the committee on the bill this afternoon. Ambrose Tighe of St. Paul v, ill be the principal speaker against its linage. The Wyman bill requires mutual life insurance companies to make a dis tribution among their policy holders at least once In five years of the undi vided earnings of the policies. It had been recommendeded to paps by the in surance committee and was on general orders yesterday when W. W. Bardwell, chairman of the insurance committee, asked that it be referred to his com mittee. B. H. Timberlake, a Minneapo lis insurance man, who is a member of the committee and who has been ab sent from the house for some days", said he desired to be heard on the bill. George H. Wyman, author of the bill, protested, declaring that the ref erence meant the death of his bill, and he said he preferred to have it killed out in the open. He said that the com mittee by only a vote of 5 to 4 has asked for the return of his bill. This vote to rerefer the bill was 37 to 84. A MATTER OF HEALTH POWDER Absolutely Pure HAS MO SUBSTITUTE STILL AFTER THE BOARD OF CONTROL Bill Offered to Divest It off Authority Over Schools for Defectives That an effort will be made to con trol still further the authority of the state board of control, was made evi dent yesterday when Senator Buck of Faribault introduced a bill to divest the board of jurisdiction over the state schools for the deaf and blind at Fari bault. The bill provides for their manage ment by the board of directors of schools for the deaf and blind, its pro visions to take efTect Aug. 1, 1905. The board of directors Is to elect a purchas ing agent, who will Tmy all the sup plies for both institutions. Inasmuch as this bill was introduced inside the twenty day limit, when the request of the governor is necessary to secure such introduction, it is thought that Senator Buck has had reasonable assurance of enough votes to pass the bill. The bill was referred to the commit tee on the deaf, dumb and blind. Representative EricksoiVs antl bucket shop bill was passed without a single opposing vote, 51 votes being recorded in its favor. A bill was offered, but recalled for the purpose of introduction by the judiciary committee this morning, which will permit the engrossing of all bills by typewriting, instead of requir ing the work to be done in longhand, as is now the case. **It is necessary to expedite the work of engrossing bills,' said Senator Wil son, "and the custom of engrossing them in longhand only is senseless." The bill extending the operation of the Torrens system of transferring real estate to all the counties of the state, was recommended for indefinite post ponement by the judiciary committee. Senator Dale moved it be placed on general orders, but it was laid over for a day without action. The senate passed twelve bills yes terday. Among those of public inter est were a bill by Senator Putnam es tablishing a department of pedagogy at the state university, one by Repre sentative Bennett establishing a school of agriculture at Crookston and a bill by Senator Dale preventing the com mitment and railroading of children to the state training school without due process of law.

SENATE KILLS THE -- - PRIMARY MEASURE Bill Extending the System to State Officers Is Indefi nitely Postponed The senate went on record yesterday against any further legislation on the primary election systtm. When the bill from the committee on elections was reached in committee of the whole. Sen ator Laybourn, its champion, moved it be recommended to pass. The bill provides for the holding of party state conventions in June at which aspirants for state officers may present their names. The convention is to cast one ballot on ail the candidates for any state of fice and the three men receiving the greatest number of votes are to be de clared the candidates of the party nom ination for such office at the ensuing primary election in September. "I am very sorry for the third time." said Senator Calhoun of Hennepin. "to move the indefinite postponement of this bill.' Senator Laybourn promptly respond ed: "I notice the opposition to this bill comes from those who are agair..«t the whole primary system. Xow. I believe this is as good a day as any other to ■■certain the sentiment of the senate on this bill. I would like to know what senator is so bold as to ask for the re peal of the present primary, law I" Sympathize With Calhoun "I am," retorted Senator Calhoun, ris ing from his chair. Amid general laughter half a dozen other senators raised their hands and indicated their sympathy with the senator from Hen nepin. "I am confident that the sentor from Heimepin." rejoined Senator Laybourn. "would, if he voted for such a repealing measure, be relegated to an oblivion so black he would never be seen again! The primary law of 1901 has been a valuable political asset of the Repub lican party in this state. It is true, Hennepin county suffered a misfortune under the primary system, but the peo ple of the state at large are satisfied with It. There are men in this senate who wouldn't be here if it was not for the primary law!" "However that might be," replied Senator Calhoun, " I will say I have no political ambition. My people may turn me down, if they want to. I never play to the galleries. This bill is so lame, so absurd, that I'll not repeat my pre vious two speeches against it, but sim ply say 'ditto, ditto." " "I'm opposed to this bill, too." said Senator Alley, "but not to the primary system. I don't believe the people want this double headed system." Call It a Humbug "I question whether this bill is a primary law at all." said Senator Wood. "It simply provides for the old caucus to select delegates to a convention which selects three people for each of fice. It isn't within a hundred miles of a primary system. It's a humbug, a pretense. Couldn't the same crowd run this convention and select three candi dates for a state office, not one of whom would be satisfactory to the people." Senator Barker said he hoped the bill would not be indefinitely postponed, as he had some amendments to offer which he thought would meet with the approval of the senator.% Senator Rar ker's amendments provided for the elec tion at the regular primary election in September of delegates to a county con vention to be held the following Friday. which convention would choose dele gates to a state convention to be held from three to ten days later. This would leave six weeks for a state campaign* which the senator, from Isanti thought was long enough. Senator Calhoun declined to with draw his motion for indefinite post ponement of the bill, but on a rising vote, it was lost by 22 to 20. as the sen ators wanted to consider Barker's amendments. The amendments consisted of a sub stitution of his scheme in place of Sen ator Laybourn's. by striking out of the latter everything after the enacting clause. No Secrecy to Ballot Senator Laybourn criticised the amendments because no provision was made for the secrecy of the ballot for delegates at the primary election and because of the shortness of time for the state campaign—only five or six weeks. It would be impossible, he con tended to organize a campaign cover ing the eighty-three counties of the state in such a brief period. Senator Thopre thought the rest of the state would be satisfied with Sen ator Barker's amendments, provided things could be so fixed as to do away with the unit rule followed by the big Hennepin delegation in the state con vention. Senator Barker's amendments to the bill were then voted upon and de feated by a vote of 18 to 17. Senator Dale offered as an amend ment the old and original bill providing for the election by the people directly of delegates to the state convention, but this too was voted down. Senator Shell then had his joke. He sent up an amendment limiting Henne pin county to only one delegate in the state convention. While the senators were laughing over it. Senator Laybourn pressed his motion that the bill be recommended to pass. It was defeated, whereupon Senator Hawkins moved Indefinite postponement of the election bill. The motion prevailed, and the senate took a recess until 3 p. m. to receive the code, reported out by the judiciary committee. REMOVES THE LIMIT Vollmer's Bill Prepares Way to Employ Prison Labor As a preliminary measure to the establishment of new industries at the Stillwater penitentiary, a bill was irv troduced in the house yesterday to re peal the prison labor law' of 1595. The bill is fathered by H. B. Vollmer of Stillwater. It simply repeals the law which limits the number of inmates of the Stillwater and St. Cloud institu tions employed in any one industry to 10 per cent of the number of men em ployed in that industry in the state. The old law has had the effect of pro hibiting the installation of a manufac tory at the penal institutions not al ready having plants employing free la bor in the state. The Vollmer bill is inspired by a desire of the Stillwater authorities to enlarge the prison and establish new industries in the new part of the prison. The Zelch bill, pend ing In the legislature, sets aside one half the net proceeds of the prison for the next year to the establishment of a factory for agricultural machinery. If that business scheme of yours Is good enough for you to devote your time to it, it is g«od enough for some other man to invest his money in. You can find the "other man" through a "Business Oppor tunity' advertisement in The Globe. jPBHW^ THE WEATHER: ffP"ffPP^ ®THE and warmer- 9 y 511 ga For St. Paul and Vicinity—Warmer. ■ U a»J 1 L« A For Minnesota—Fair and warmer § ll*A*a Bi W^Pf^^^H^ Thursday; Friday showrs. fresh east 11IIH3^ winds.

DULUTH IS HEARD Proposed Bond Issue Brings Favorable Delegation Bert Fessler. city attorney of Duluth. and a delegation of Duluth business merv, urged a favorable report from the Ramsey house delegation yesterday <ai the Hugo bill, authorizing a popular vote on a proposition to bond the city of Duluth for $400,000 to purchase the local electric light plain. The Ramsey delegation submitted the Hugo bill to a committee of Its mem bers to so amend the bill that its pro visions will not apply to St. Paul. Cor poration Attorney J. I". Michael told the local delegation that the bill in its original form would give St. Paul peo ple the right to vote for a municipal lighting plant. Mr. Fessler declared that any amendment to the bill at this late date in the session would result in a failure to get it through the senate, and intimated that hostile influences were at work in the senate to defeat it. He said that the municipality wanted the right to purchase the local lighting plar,t in view of the early expiration of its lighting contract as a means of obtaining a renewal of the contract. It is regarded that the chances for the bill going through the legislature are not of the brightest. Among the Div luthians in St. Paul to attend the hear ing were T. T. Hudson., George S. Spen cer, Frank Crassweller. R. D. Haven and L. B. Manley. They represent the Duluth city council, the chamber of commerce, the commercial club and the water and light boards. CHAPTER CELEBRATES TWENTIETH YEAR Baptism of Babe Is Feature of Even- ing's Programme The twentieth anniversary of Con stellation <'hapter No. 18. Order of the Eastern Star, was celebrated at the Masonic temple last night with ap propriate ceremonies. The event was participated in by nearly 300 lodge people, and a banquet was served at 6:30 o'clock. Ethel Dorothy, the 2 months old baby of Mrs. Mary J. Simmons, past matron of the chapter, was christened. The ceremony was performed by Dr. John Wright, the Episcopal service being used. Mrs. Simmons was presented with a matron's jewel, and the baby was given a silver spoon bearing the inscription. "Our Star Baby." A mu sical programme was given. The chapters that were there as guests of the occasion were Ivanhoe. Mistletoe and Oarmel of St. Paul, ami Palestine, Minnehaha and Lorraine of Minneapolis. The hall was appropri ately decorated with the colors of the lodge. One of those present last even ing was Mrs. Martha Gordon, who was for twenty years secretary of the chap ter and the only living charter mem ber. She was presented with a large bunch of flowers. Boys Held for Theft Willie Gould. 13 years, and Percy Laverty. 14 years, both living on the west side, were arrested last night charged with larceny. The boys are accused by J.
