SOME CHANGES IN FIRE DEPARTMENT
Bara Refases Appoint Men Wki
Casnnlet Probationary Term, bat
Install Others. Despite Chief
In response to a recent Inquiry tha
Beard of Fir and Police Commissioners
aaa received an opinion from City Attor
ney Connall to the affect that the mem
bara of that body could be held personally
liable for any Indebtedness Incurred by the
appointment of mora men to the fire or po
lice departmenta than the respective
available funda for salsrles la sufficient to
pay. In part Mr. Conn ell aays In hit com
"In my opinion the Intentional creation
of any liability In excess of law would ere
ate a persenal liability. A clear and ex
press limitation la placed on the board by
the charter aa to the employment of offi
cer and men for the Ore and police de
partments. Such employment can only be
to the extent and limit that the fund pro
Tided by the mayor and council tor that
purpose will allow."
The Bra department fund Is very low at
thla time, but there la no present anxiety
aa to the , police fund, which Is in better
condition than for a long time past. The
-cammunlcatloQ of the city attorney was
plaoed on file.
Board la Myaterloaa.
The present board haa adopted a very
mysterious method, the obvious purpose of
which is to avoid publicity as far as Is pos
sible. Beside the executive session at tha
elese of the meeting, which is becoming
regular. It has also become the custom to
pen the sitting with an executive session
and by that means to have all business
carefully arranged before the open meet
Ing begins. Even in spite of that precau
tlonary arrangement It at times becomes
necessary for the members to get their
head together and confer privately in the
court of the public demonstration and It
'1 not Infrequently done.
It waa Indicated In the course of the
meeting that the board will hereafter re
(fuse to draw upon tha fire department fund
' for the payment of damages entailed by
reaaon of aCcldants In which the depart-
tment la involved, taking the ground that
the liability should fall upon the city In
the lima manner a the responsibility for
accident from a number of other cauie,
auch aa a defective aldewalk, for Instance.
No decisive action waa taken, but the mem
ber in a sort of Informal discussion agreed
with 'Commissioner Wright that the board
ahould shift tha payment of these damages
to tha city. There waa some question as
, to the legal atatus of the proposition and
' action was for that reason deferred.
Revokes Sobstttnte List.
On motion of Commissioner Spratlen the
entire list of substitute firemen waa revoked
and the following list substituted: Chrls
' Ulan Clauaen, Leonard Brown. Michael
Qulnlan, John Miller. John F. Miller and
David L. Camp. The only name which ap
peared on both lists was that of Michael
Chief Salter reported that Frank Brundage
and Harry Trimble bad completed the stxty
Iday term of probationary appointment aa
! members of the fire department and recom
mended that they be regularly appointed.
On motion of Mr. Spratlen the ch ef waa
Instructed to Inform the two men that their
..aaswlwsa-war. not required. . The reason
' Riven waa that in the present condition of
the fund the board would best not appo'nt
any new men. Later In the evening, bow
aver, after a secret conference with the
chairman and other members, Mr. Spratlen
'instructed the chief to appoint Christian
Clauasen and Leonard Brown from the sub
stitute list and a man named O. L. Fox,
so had been on the old substitute list.
Igaor Chief's Recommendation.
The resignation of Joseph Lank aa captain
of hose company No. B was accepted and a
communication from the chief waa read in
which he recommended Patrick II. Dempsey
for the vacancy thua caused. A petition wa
also presented from the residents In the
vicinity of No. 8 house, which Is located at
'Walnut Hill, in which the board waa urged
to advance Lieutenant John J. Ormsby to
the position of captain. On motion of Mr.
Spratlen Mr, Ormsby received the appoint
ment. Tha resignation of George O. Trexler,
driver of engine No. 3, waa accepted.
Tha greater portion of tha open aesslon
, waa devoted to a formal hearing of tha case
of Officer Anton Inda, accused of having
smallpox in hie family.
Testimony In Inda Case.
Dr. Arnold and Officer Wooldrldge of thi
Health department were called upon to
testify to tha effect that on July 2 and 10
' last ona of Inda'a son waa discovered to be
, 111 with amallpox and at that time the
child waa nearly recovered, although the
. case had never been reported to tha Health
Chief Donahue of the police department
etated that Inda had performed hia regular
dutlea aa an officer until the evening cf July
t. when the department waa notified by the
health .officers thst there waa smallpox in
Inda'a family. Inda, who conducted hla own
case, and while acting a hla own attorney
referred to himself strictly in tha third
parson, called Dr. A. W, Riley, James
Bchnelderwlnd. Dr. E. Holovltschlner and
one or two other witnesses to show that
tha boy, who was quarantined by Dr. Arnold
July SO. had not at that time or any other
. time bad amallpox, but a few montha pre
viously had chlckenpox, and that two of
' Inda'a other sons after the quarantine had
been" established developed amallpox. Tha
case waa taken under advisement.

Crowd at the Den Last
There Is but one more Initiation night
at the den of tha Knights of Ak-8sr-Bsn
thla year. The Board of Oovernors hoped
to be able to continue until September 22,
but because of the early date of the first
parade It was found necessary to drop
this plan and all the work to be done at
Initiations will hsve to be completed this
The chairman referred to tha parades
and announced that Philip Miller had been
appointed to take charge of the display of
the fraternal societies in the daylight pa-
rade. Mr. Miller called for volunteera to
assist In the work and promised one of the
most attractive daylight parades ever given
by the society. There la still room for
about a dozen volunteer on floats in the
electrical pageant and the chairman, Fred
Metx, desires them to report as soon as
possible, as drills will begin upon the con.
luslon of the initiations.
The work at the den last night was most
attractive, the prtnclpsl feature being a
came between Al Sorenson and Beach
Taylor. Both men had many backera, ana
when Mr. Taylor captured practically an
of the counter he waa wildly cheered,
while even the closest friends of Mr. Sor.
enson were forced to laugh when he quit

regarding the attitude of the national orga

union makes ths following statement to a
member of the local union, that ths women
may know tha facta from tb atandpoint
ot the national executive committee:
The Board of Temple Trustees la an In
corporated body, separate and distinct
from the National Woman's Christian
Temperance anion from the very first.
The temple never was taken up by the
National Woman's Christian Temperance
union as a department of lu work. From
tne very nature of the case ths National
Woman a Christian Temperance union
rever had any authority over the busLnena
of ths Temple Trustees. Mrs. Carve, the
or'.gUiator of the temple idra. was. how
ever, allowed to sollrlt mouey from the
unions because of her avowed purpose to
purchase the temple and present it to the
national organisation for headquarters and
as a means of revenue. There waa. bow
ever, never any written agreement to this
effect and the verbal promLm haa not been
continurd since the national refused to
lend further aid to the enterprise. The
following axe some of the reajmus why the
national voted 2 to 71 at the St. Paul

Arrested for Wife-Beat Ing-
Andrew Murphy was arrested late last
night on the charge of wife beating. The
couple have only been marled a few montha,
but this Is the second time Murphy has
been arrested on the same charge, the nrt
time being May 7. when the bridal rosea
had scarcely faded. He was given ninety
aays for his first performance, but was
nardoned after servlna tart of his time
Last night Murphy went to his home at 1914
California street and proceeded to amuse
himself by beating his young wife. He
kicked her In the mouth and then, taking
off his shoe, proceeded to beat her with It.
The police were notified and took him to
the station, the wife being made romfort-
aoie for tne ment in tne matron s room.
She was severely bruised, but not seriously
convention asking that the building ahould
not be erected on rented ground, the tem
ple was built on leased ground, for which
a rental of $40,000 per year must be paid.
The national asked that the building should
not exceed In cost .ou0 or li0,ou0. The
temple cost $1,266,000. The national asked
that the work nhould not be begun until
Mrs. I'arse had collected $fO0,Oi)O for the
purchase of the temule. This was totally
disregarded. After eleven years of heroic
effort on the part of Individuals and unions
Mrs. Carse's report at the St. Paul con
vention In 1898 showed that while nearly
tiM' had belli given with which to pur
chase the temple, she had purchased and
paid for leas than $40,000 worth of stock.
There was, therefore, no hope of ever pur
chasing the remainder of the $00.000 of
atock and paying off the $&JU.uOO mortgage
upon the building held by Mr. Marshall
To complicate matters Mrs. Carae haa is
sued her own -personal bonds to the amount
of $.'iu.00l. These are known as the tem
ple trust bond and were not authorised
by the National Woman's Christian Tem
perance union. When the temple was dis
continued as an affiliated Interest Mrs.
Carse had spent JlO.OuO in floating her bonds
and hud paid $3.uG0 Interest on them and
bad already defaulted on the interest on
these bonds and had notified her bondhold
ers that she would not pay but TO centa
on the dollar, lb us repudiating her per
sonal obligation before the national re
fused to longer countenance the enterprise.
It should be remembered that ail these
expenditures on the experiment of her
boruts and the $HUuu speut In decorating
Willard hail and various oiner sum',
amounting to over $3uu,tt. wers paid ojt
ft the gift fund sent in to purchase tha
u triple. These and other bad conditions
convinced the jiaiional that it could no
longer stand before ths public In the at
titude of encouraging the effort to buy the
temple. I'p to the time of the St. Paul
convention the national was aasured from
time to time that it had no financial obli
gation In the matter whatever. Since lha
temple has been dropped It ha been
claimed by Mrs. Carse and others that
there la a moral obligation on the part of
the national to redeem Mrs. Caxse s per
sonal bond. From the very nature of the
case , no auch obligation could exist, tint
the national would be obliged to pay tba

tated yesterday that he was now laying
mains on O atreet between Twenty-fourth
and Twenty-fifth streets, on K street from
Twentylflfth to Twenty-sixth street', and on
fore affiliated with it. It should not be
forgotten that months before the national
was thus accused of repudiating a moral
obligation Mrs Carse had repudiated her
Interest entirely and notified her bond
holders that she would pay but 70 centa
on the face value of her bonds. It Is to
be rememberd that her bondholders are
secured by temple stock, which they can
have transferred to their own names any
day, according to the terms of the bonds,
and that there is nothing with which to
reimburse those who gave nearly IJU0.0U)

lars each year for four years after It was
opened. Since then it haa run behind every
rear one year nearly $14,000. another over
12,000 and In lKtl It ran behind $&.6M.7o.
The building Is now In debt to Mr. Field
for Interest on hla $6,0ou mortgage $H7,
fO. Under these circumstances what
would the national do with the tempi If
It owned It T It la true that Miss Willard
dedicated the BSth year of her life to an
effort to pay off Mrs. Carse's bonds, but
It should slso be remembered that ahs
si. id at the same time that her thought
did not rjn far enough to Include the
ownership of the temple. "If by the termi
nation of this year. November 1. lint, we
cannot raise the tlOO.iM) we ahould disas
sociate ourselves from ths enterprise aa
an affiliated Interest.
"The effort now being made by Mr.
Oars ts not for or ty the National
Woman's Christian Temperance union and
It would be wi fr.r Individual wotild-bc
oonors to rememoer that while the na
tional stood ny tne temple, it took more
than four-Hfths of what was riven to hnv
the temple for the expenses of the enter
prise and that unless the last doliar of
the mortgage Sj0.O0i heid by Mr. Field
can b paid off it can be foreclosed at any
time and all that has been put In be
swept away, and all unions should remem
ber that Mrs. i'arse promised the St. Paul
convection that she would no longer ap
peal to them. Miss Wlilaxd having aald the
ear previous that the unions had done
enujgh; they munt not be appealed tn any
