NEWS OF THE CITY PRISONERS ADMIT THEY ARE GUILTY Four Men Indicted by Grand Jury Confess Their Crimes Criminal court was convened yes terday morning with Judge Lewis presiding. Four prtsoners had se cured permission from the county at torney to change their pleas of not guilty to charges of grand larceny. Two were young men, hardened al ready, the county attorney said, in crime. The other two were unusual men for the criminal court. Both were men of seemingly good intentions and good prospects who had fallen through \v< ;.kness<'s. The most pathetic of the cases was that of white haired Ernest Bennet, <-h;.i ged with grand larceny in the first degree, stealing $700 from the St. Paul Furniture company, while employed by the company ;is a bookkeeper. Bennet told the story of his life to the court. He had served a three year bi ntence in the Anamosa penitentiary in lou.i, he said, for forgery, but when he bad emerged from the prison he had (dine away from his old associa tions, seeking to reform and to live an honest life. He succeeded until last fall when he became a victim of temp t:..tin):;; and embezzled the funds of the company. Judge Li wis took the case under advisement and will pronounce sentence this morning. W. F. Carter, who, according to his own confession, stole $296.78 from the Northern Pacific railway company while working on a dining car as con ductor, was given six months in the c( unty jail after pleading guilty to the indictment returned against him, grand larceny in the second degree. Dr. W. H. W. Boyle, pastor of the House of Hope Presbyterian church, hjuke to the judge in behalf of the prisoner and said that he belie%-ed Carter to be sincere In his promise to reform. Carter is married and has two little children. He told the court that gambling had caused him to com-' mit the embezzlements which landed him In jail. Edward Magin, 19 years old, Indicted on a charge of grand larceny in the m cond degree, was sentenced to the re formatory at St. Cloud. Magin had once before been in jail. This time he purloined a $10.00 violin and a $2.00 revolver from the room of Charles Kelly. Arthur BardweU, 23 years old, one of the young men indicted for robbiug White Bear cottages, turned state's evidence against his companion, Mike Sauerwlne, and pleaded guilty, re ceiving a reformatory sentence. ACCUSED OF BREAKING FELLOW WORKER'S NOSE Louis Klinkberg Arrested on Complaint of Thomas Sharkey Louis Klinkberg was in the police court yesterday charged with having assaulted and broken the nose of Thomas Sharkey, a fellow employe. ;it the Great Northern shops. His case ■v\as continued and he was released on $100 bail. Sharkey alleges that Klinkberg has been antagonistic toward him for the lasr three years as the result of mat ters growing out of a strike at the Great Northern shops at that time. Monday noon, while he was "register ing out" on the time dock in the shops, Klinkberg. so Sharkey says, appeared and wrested the lever out of his hands. Sharkey alleges he grabbed it again, and that Klinkberg struck him with a metal instrument. THE GXEAT AMERICAN PIE IS GOOD FOOD.

L>o .it today; VERITY BECOMES A POLITICAL LEADER Former Secretary of Republican State Committee Heads a State League Out of the session of the legislature a new Republican political organization has been born. The Republican state league ip the pretentious name attach ed to the organization, officered in de tail by the employes of the last house and senate, according to literature which recently made its appearance at the state capitol. Membership in the new organization is based on a willing ness to subscribe in general to Repub lican doctrines and to pay $1 member ship fee into the treasury. W. E. Verity/the Wadena editor, for mer secretary of the Republican state central committee and late keeper of committee rooms in the state senate, is president of the Republican state league. Edward D.

VERITY President of the Republican State L« .igue. ton, once intimately connected with the EU publican state organization, more recently sergeant at aims of the house and now dated tor the superintendeney of the new state capitol, is one of the vice presidents, and Don C. Johnson of Blue Earth city, late sergeant at arms of the retiring room of the senate, is the other Republican who shares with Mr. Claggett the honor of being a vice president of the state league. Andrew A. W. Rahn, an active young politician of Minneapolis, during the session just c losed file clerk of the house of repre sentatives, is secretary, and William G. Bunde, formerly connected with the United States marshal's office at St. Paul and of late a senate stenographer, is burdened with the duties of treasurer of the state association. Up to the present the membership In the league is said by those responsible for its organization to include some very prominent Republicans. One man recently invited to sign the constitution and become a member was given a membership card No. 37. Whether or not the memberships are numbered from No. 1 or a higher number could not be learned. Promoters of the league insist that they Intend to make it a power in Minnesota politics. It is regarded as suspicious that all the officers of the league were original Dunn men in the bitter fight that tore the Republican party of Minnesota into factions in the last state campaign. One of the officers is credited with the statement that one of the purposes of the league is to discipline the so-called Collins Republicans who refused to abide by the verdict of the last state convention that^tominnted R. c. Dunn for governor, and who either sulked in their tenta or openly bolted the. nom inee. INSURANCE LAW FITS Commissioner O'Brien Says Legislature Has Done Well Insurance men say that the new in surance law passed by the Minnesota legislature gives the state the best framework for a successful state in surance department in the northwest. Insurance Commissioner T. D. O'Brien cooperated with the insurance com mittee In framing the bill, placing his office on a salary basis Instead of ■ fee b&sifl and In putting the bill through both branches of the legisla ture. "The good features of th« bill, aside from the salary provisions, were large ly lost sight of during the considera tion of the bill." Mr. O'Brien sai<! yes terday. "It first of all means a net revenue to the state of over $14,000. It regulates inequalities by placing the fees charged insurance companies In this state on the same grade as charged in many of the other states. By lixing the titles .-ma providing for an actuary and for methods of payment for exam inations, the Insurance companies are protected from unreasonable demands upon the part of the commissioner as to examinations and fees. At the same lime the commissioner is protected from the necessity of admitting the ir responsible companies which make the department po hard to maintain. "I regard the new insurance law as of great value to the state and ac knowledge the hearty cooperation in its enactriKMU of numbers of earnest. conscientious senators and house mem bers."

' THE ST. PAUL GLOBE, WEDNESDAY, APRIL 19, 1905 MANY BILLS OFFERED AFFECTING ST. PAUL Corporation Attorney Says Ben eficial Measures Are Offset by Bad Ones Legislation affecting St. Paul and Ramsey county occupied quite a prom inent place in the session of the legis lature that came to a close yesterday. According to Corporation Attorney J. C. Michael, who was frequently con sulted by the Ramsey delegation as to bills affecting the city, the account between the good bills and the meas ures undesirable, from the standpoint of the city's legal department, is about evenly balanced. A number of measures intended to legalize bond issues, curative acts and other bills contemplating departures In policies in local affairs, are credited to the credit side of the ledger. Mr. Michael believes that much of the good is offset by the Lemon bill which reduces the interest rate on cer tificates for local assessments from 12 to 8 per cent. Originally the bill put the interest rate at 6 per cent, but the senate amended it to make It 8 per tent. In this form the bill passed and went to the governor for his veto. Mr. Michael had no idea that the bill would be passed, but when it was before the governor he strongly urged Gov. John son to veto it. The governor declined to commit himself to this position without consulting the Ramsey dele gation. A meeting of the senators from Ramsey was thereupon held in the governor's room, but the senators declared after consideration that they would not ask the governor to utiath his veto to the Lemon bill. New Bridge at Snelling Perhaps the most important bill af fecting the city passed by the legisla ture is the bill to authorize a bond is sue of $150,000 to aid in building a new combination, road and railway bridge acioss the Mississippi river at Fort Snelling. There was compai.t tively little opposition to the bill be cause of the importance of Fort Snell ing as a business adjunct to the < ity. Among the other purely city bills passed were: The Dunn bills, curing laws of two years ago, giving the park board the right of condemnation ;tn«l authority to issue $200,000 in. park bonds: the M< Namee bill, permitting the charter commission to submit as one amendment at one time all amend ments proposed to the charter, and providing for a reduction In the num ber of times which the propose l amendments must be published from 30 to 3: the municipal court bill, giv ing the St. Paul municipal court addi tional clerk hire and more bailiffs; the Hickey police pension bill: the bill making tax certificates for local im provements coordinate with general tax certificates; the bill to Issue $10, --000 bonds for the Improvement of West Seventh street, and the water board's bill to permit the board to condemn for its own purposes lands to guaranty the purity of the water supply. Water Board Bill Dies The water board's bill to authorize a bond issue of $500,000 for the gen eral improvement of the St. Paul wa ter works system failed to pas?. Aft er being approved by the Ramsey and Hennepin delegations the bill went to the St. Louis It stayed in Chairman Hugo's pocket until after adjournment. The Duluth leader could not be induced to report out the bill, declaring that his city was not ready to be affected by the terms of a meas ure general enough in its scope to per mit Duluth to issue an equal amount of bonds for water works purposes. The bill to permit the issuance of 1100.000 bonds for the macadamizing of University avenue and the bill to make the Ramsey county assessor elec tive were numbered among the lost. Measures affecting the county were fewer, but possibly fully as important in a general way. A bill which passed both houses and was approved by the governor excepts the operation, of the 1905 state census from Ramsey county in determining the compensation of the clerk of the district court, the register of deeds and the sheriff. A bill gave County Auditor E. G. Krahmer a slightly increased salary and his office additional clerk hire. Another bill pro vided for the transcribing of the sher iff's certificates of sale prior to 1862 in the office of the register of deeds. Important as affecting the future of country roads in Ramsey county was the Fulton bill, which became a law. Jt provided a means for a general plan of county road building, under which it is expected that the county commis sion will embark in a comprehensive system of roads for the country. A number of bills affecting the duties and compensation of the county sur veyor were :ilso passed by the legisla ture. Hills T'ff.ctinp St. Paul. but not sirlctly local natters, were those giv ing control of the new state capttol to j the capltol commission: relating to the uses of the old state < apitol for patri otic societies, and appropriations for the state agricultural college, the state fair and the St. Paul state fish hau h ery.

"The second trial of Dr. Koch we are confident will result in his acquittal,'' sail senator Some] vilie yesterday. "The first trial was conducted at New Ulm in the face of a strong public sen timent that presupposed our client guilty of murder. There will be a. noticeable absence of this feeling at Mankat... and I have no doubt that the second trial will proceed without the attempt to convict Dr. Koch in ad vance of his trial. We have discovered since the last trial some additions] ev idence. The nature of this I do not to discuss, but I am confident of an acquittal instead of a disagreement at this time. "At the first trial the newspapers did not give the accused any the best of their reports and only last week we were compelled to proceed*.against a New Tim publisher for contempt of court in commenting on the case. Judge Cray fined him $150 and pave a strict warning to the publisher not to repeat his offense." PROTEST AGAINST ANOTHER SALOON Citizen of Indian Mound District Say They Have a Sufficiency Scores of citizens from the Mound Park district appeared before the license com mittee of the board of aldermen yesterday and protested against the granting of a license to M C.

Two petitions, each bearing about WO names, were also presented to the com mittee from the Mound Park District citizens' league and the Hound Part Motheis' league protesting against the Is suance of this saloon license. Several citizens addressed the commit tee and pointed out the various reasons why they did not want another saloon to invade that locality. It was stated that therq were at the present tine two s;| loi.ns in that neighborhood which were more than enough. Rev. Ryan, pastor of* the M E. church, told of the disorderly conduct ..f nne of the saloons and pleaded with the commit tee not to be Instrumental in adding an other saloon. . A. D.

PROVERB CONTEST JUDGES BEGIN WORK Several Contestants Fall to File Answers-Before Time Limit Expires At 3 <>'< !<>< k yesterday afternoon, the time for receiving solutions in The Globe's great proverb contest expired, ;m«l ihv Judges began the task of ex amining the seta «>f solutions received. All day yesterday packages of prov - ■ i> picture solutions poured into The <11 ol> c office, from the postofßce, from messenger buys and from contestants who came to the office to s-e that their solutions were delivered properly and in time. The numbers of sets <>f answers re ceived was a truly complimentary in meni of the contest. No attempt has been made as yet to count them, but there are piles and heaps, and the task which lies before the Judges In their work gives promise of being a long and arduous one. As is usually the >ase. there were a lew late comers who rushed breathless into The Globe orh". .■ at five and t< n minutes after 3 o'clock to enter their sets of solutions in the contest. Of a necessity they sxere refused and the conditions which they should have known \vere explained to them. The late comers were greatly disappointed, of course, but found cheer in the thought that what was food for the goose was food for the gander—there were others there clutching worthless bunches of proverb answers, to keep them company. The list of the 50 correct answers to the 50 proverb pictures was withdrawn yesterday afternoon from the safety deposit vault, where it has lain since the beginning of the contest, and the work of sorting out the various sets of solutions is now on in earnest. It Is a work that will take days. It is too early now to even hazard a guess as to when the labors of the judges will !«. completed and the list of prixe win ners published to the world. Information as to the progress being made in the judging work will be given to contestants through the columns of The Globe.
