NORTH STAR PEOPLE STOP IN OMAHA
In Party la C. F. .Macdonald, Veteran
Democratic Statesman and Editor,
All Retnrnlnir from Denver
A party of Mlnnesotans who had been to
Denver attending the Grand Army encamp
ment atopped off at the Paxton hotel yes.
terday between trains. The party con'
slsted of Mr. and Mrs. C. F. Macdonald of
St. Cloud, Colonel and. Mrs. B. J. Mosier
and Mrs. C. A. Moster and Colonel A. C,
Hospes of Stillwater and. Colonel P. J.
Woodward of Aooka.
Mr. Macdonald, department commander
of the Minnesota Grand Army of the Re
public, Is editor and proprietor of tha St,
Cloud Times, the leading democratic dally
paper of central Minnesota, known all over
the state for Its strong and unequivocal
editorial utterances. Mr. Macdonald be
longs to the old school of editors, who
writes what he thinks and believes what he
advocates and has both the power of ex
presslon and the strength of charaoter to
give his writings force and effect. For
many years he was the leader of democratic
politics In central Minnesota. He repre
sented Stearns county In the state senate
several times and continues as a potent
factor In state affairs.
The Times had a unique advent as a dally
For many years It had been published as a
weekly and one afternoon back In the '80s a
one-horse wsgon was driven through the
streets of St. Cloud and Its occupant was
observed distributing papers. These papers
were copies of the St. Cloud Dally Times,
the first dally ever published In that city.
Its advent was a complete surprise to "the
people, for It was unheralded. From that
time the dally has not missed a regular
Issue. It soon brought a competing repub
Ucan dally Into the Meld.
Colonel Mosier also Is a democratic wheel
horse of the North Star state. He -was
member of the state committee and .'one of
the most active leaders In .the campaign of
1900, when Governor John Llnd was barely
defeated for re-election by Samuel B Van
Bitter Fight to Lose.
"That was a hard fought battle and
hard and bitter one to lose," observed Col
onel Mosier. "The republicans had about
recognised the Impossibility of beating Llnd
by ordinary means. Tarns Bixby of Red
Wing, an enemy of Van Sant. finally took
the chairmanship of the republican commit
tee that had been thrust on him because his
psrty knew he was the most astute, poli
tician In the state and If any man could
save Van Bant Blxby could. To make a long
story short a few days before election Blxby
had Secretary of State Albert Berg make
out the ballot and on It he put. the name
of Tom Lucas, social-democrat, directly
after that of John Llnd, democrat The
democrats' whole campaign had been, 'vote
her straight, boys; wherever you see the
word democrat, put your mark.' It was too
late for the democrats to counteract the
lessons they had been drilling Into the
Ignorant voters. And the laws . of. Mlnne
sota forbade mandamuslng an executive
officer, which the secretary of state was.
There was no way, after a certain time,
of getting Tom Lucas off the ticket, al
though he had no right there.' The laws of
Minnesota provided that a party must have
cast one per cent of the vote Of the state
before It could have recognition on a gen
eral ballot. The social-democratic party
had been unknown In Minnesota, politics,
"when the returns came In. Van Sant
was elected by about J,00 and'fully 25,000
tickets had been voted, first for John Llnd
and then for Tom Lucas, 'to make sure,

self. The same returns showed McKinley
had carried the state over Bryan by 77.0UJ.

any non-ledger assets within the past
The session closed with. Mr. Cromwell
still on the stand. .
Affairs of Xew York Life.
Frederick Shlpman, assistant treasurer for
the last thirty years of the New Tork Life
Insurance company, was the first witness
before the Insurance investigation today.
He was examined on syndicate accounts.
The Toronto, Hamilton and Bnffalo deals
were the first taken up and the accounts
were gone into In detail.
'How could the New York." asked Mr,
Hughes, counsel to the committee, "retire
Toronto, Hamilton & Buffalo bonds from
the syndicate at 99, when It had bought
them while in the syndicate at 91?"
"Because the market price, in the opln
Ion of C. M. Gibbs, the treasurer at the
time, was then 99. We credited the profit,
$44,9S. to profit and loss."
Next Mr. Hughes turned to the Joint ac
count of Goldman, Sachs & Co. and the I
New York Life Insurance $10,000,000 of Chi- !
cago & Alton bonda. This account was In
existence in la
Deal In Northwestern.
Tho account was crhated in order to In
vest In Chicago & Northwestern railroad
bonds with an agreement for equal division
of profits. Mr. Shlpman said It should not
be cdlled a syndicate.
"How can you explain that on July 18,
1899, you buy and sell 750 bonds on the same
day according to your statement?" askod
"The only way I can explain It," Mr.
Shlpman replied, "Is that the New York
Life held these bonds and wished to sell
them. Therefore It named a fair price and
transferred them to a Joint account."
"Now, don't you see the purchase Is not
for the syndicate, but for the New York
Life Insurance company?"
"I can't say. It is six years ago."
"Is it fair to say that the New York Life
enters into an agreement with others and
provides the money for the purchase of
bonds and then gives the members of the
syndicate tho profits of the sale?"
"Does this mean the New York Life pays
one-half the profits to bankers to get them
to handle the syndicates?"
"Yes, I think it Is sometimes advisable
In order to get the business."
! The Chicago. Burlington A Out new rteal
was next Investigated. W. 8. Fanshawe
was the other member of this Joint ac
count. It, too, was a purchase of bonds
for resale, amounting to $500,000 to $ri00,000.
"There seems to be a great many pf
those Joint accounts," said Mr. Hughes.
"Is it safe to say they are all speculative,
like the Chicago it Northwestern?"
He said another syndicate was formed to
purchase the stock of the Chi pa go. Burling'
ton & Qulncy railroad.
Mr. Shlpman gave way to Edmund Ran
dclph, treasurer of the New York Life In
Mr. Randolph, upon request, gave details
of the purchase for resale of certain bonds
for Joint account.
Frederick Cromwell, treasurer of the
Mutual Life Insurance company, also was
recalled. He made a statement to the ef
fect that it Is impossible for Insurance
companies to seek Investments nowaday

without the sld of syndicates. He said
that heretofore business could be con
ducted through bond brokers, but today It
must be conducted through a combination
of big capitalists. The Mutual, he said, Is
doing a business of $100,000,000 a year and
must seek ths medium of syndicates. This
company, he said, has $450,000,000 Invested,
of which sum $150,000,000 Is In bonds and
At this afternoon's session of the legis
lative Insurance Investigating committee,
Frederick Cromwell, treasurer of the Mu

he made a personal profit of $3'., 371 during

COMPLETION OF HOSPITAL
Work oa Methadlsta Building; Wilt
Be Resumed aad Institution
Opened In Spring;.
Work will be resumed soon on the Meth
odist hospital at Thirty-sixth and Cuming
streets, and It Is expected to have It ready
for patients by spring. The decision was
made by the board of director of the
hospital at a meeting Tuesday night. It
Is subject to the approval by mall of a
few of the fifteen directors, who were not
present, but there Is no doubt as to their
ttltude In the matter.
The erection of the main building and
the furnishing and equipment of It and the
two buildings already completed will In
volve an expenditure of $100,000. About
$30,000 already has been spent In the pur
chase of grounds ayid erection of buildings.
The bclldlng to be put up' this fall will be
four stories and basement, 8Sx85 feet, with
a hexagonal addition of the same number
of stories, 60x50 feet at the widest points.
The board of directors expects to give
orders for structural steel within a few
days, and as soon as that can be secured,
Rocheford A. Gould, who have the con
tract, will begin work, '
Operations were temporarily suspended
last fall on account of lack of funds to
complete the project without entailing too
great a debt on the hospital. With the
money on hand now and that which has
been pledged, the members of the board
think that the hospital finances are on a
basis sound enough to complete the work,
The boiler house and laundry, two stories
In height and 33x70 feet, is one of the
finished structures. The other Is the
operating pavilion, two stories In height
and Kx47 feet. The foundation of the main
building up to the water table was laid
last fall. '
The hospital Is planned with a view to
adding wings and ultimately Increasing It
to about four times Ha original capacity

DENY CHARGE OF CONTEMPT OF COURT
ndce Sutton Refuses to Grant Con-
nell's Motion for Chanae of
Venue State Rests
The Bible says, there Is no God!" ex
claimed Attorney W. J. Connell In Judge
Sutton's court Wednesday morning. "But
while the Bible says that," explained the
mlllng lawyer, "we must read It In con
nection with what precedes It, towit. 'The
fool says In his heart there Is no God,'
which is a different proposition."
Mr. Connell was quoting scripture, as
Judge Slabaugh said, for his own purpose,
and at that particular time Mr. Connell's
purpose was to show, by City Clerk El
bourn, that the gas ordinance, so-called,
had not been passed. Mr. Elbourn pro
duced in court the record of the council
meeting of September S, which snowed on
Its face that "the ordinance was passed
nd its title agreed to."
In answer to questions, contradicting the
record apparently, Mr. Elbourn said the
ordinance had never been read a third
tlnre in any way. The question on Its paa-
age, he said, had been put by Mr. Hunt
ington from the floor and the councilman
from the Ninth ward had declared It car
ried, Reads Mayor's Mesne ae.
In this connection Mr. Connell read the
message of Mayor Moores returning the or
dinance "to the clerk's desk'' for such ac
tion as might be necessary. Judge Sutton
took occasion to remark that he had read
the mayor's speech," referring to part of
the returning message, but the attorney
gave the whole communication again with
This was all following the refusal of
Judge Sutton to allow a change of venue
to another court. He held that the court
which Issued the order alleged to have been
violated was the only competent authority
to try me issue and overruled tne motion
for a change of venue without hesitation.
When the real trial of the case began he
was Just as prompt In overruling every ob
jection of the state to the introduction of

o'clock the decks had been cleured for ac
tion, the defendants were In court, and
the meat of the whole controversy was
the order of the court violated by the ac
cused councllmen? was In a fair way to
be determined speedily.
Beyond the fact of overruling the mo
tion for a change of venue, little or noth
ing waa done Wednesday morning. There
waa a lot of legal spurring, but as the de
fendant councllmen, through their counsel,
admitted the allegations that cleared up
the preliminaries, the case has really got
well along, as law cases go.
State All In.
With the admission of the record proceed
ings by the defense County Attorney Sla-k
baugh announced that the state rested and
Mr. Connell's questions to City Clerk El
bourn all went to the legality, or rather
the regularity, of the action of the council
on the ordinance.
In brief, the defense Is that the ordinance
was never properly passed, and that there
fore the votes of the five councllmen In Its
favor did not constitute a contempt of
court. The state holds that they did every
thing they could do to pass the ordinance,
legally or otherwise. On this Issue the case
Is proceeding and promises to be finished
this afternoon, as far as tbe evidence Is
concerned. . -
Beyond the denial of the passage of the
ordinance Mr. Connell's special plea is that
the court had no authority, no right and
no Jurisdiction to issue the restraining or
der which is alleged to have been violated.

Evans, Huntington and Schroedcr, sit

All of the afternoon session was taken op
with argument by the attorneys, who had
quite an audience, although the personnel
of the listeners was changing continually.
County Attorney Slabaugh led oft for the
prosecution and was followed by Mr. Oilier,
who devoted his attention laigely to au
thorhlen which he held were in point. Mr.
Connell followed for the defense. He took
the position that defendants had two good
grounds for their action In disregarding
the mandate of the court. One he held to
be that the court had no authority to Issue
the restraining order in the first place,
being without right or authority to do so
under tha circumstances existing. The
other ground of defense was that the roun
cllmen had not passed the ordinance to
which the restraining order referred, and
therefore could not be guilty of contempt.
He dwelt on these two propositions at great
length, quoting from numerous decisions of
the state supreme court and reading some
of the prosecution's with an entirely dif
ferent meaning from that given them by
Attorneys Slabaugh and Oilier. He

Judge Sutton, on- request of the county
attorney and Mr. Connell, adjourned the
hearing until Friday morning because of

Most Happily Locating Three
Some time ago Tho Bee published an ac
count of how Superintendent Clark of the
Child Saving Institute had come Into con
trol of a fine little family of three brothers
and a sister, unusually bright children,
for whom he sought proper homes. It was
then desired that the children be located
In such a way that they would not be
widely scattered, but might grow up with
out being entirely broken up as brothers
and sister. This especially applied to the
two youngest, a boy of 7 and a girl of 2
years. Much attention was attracted to
the children through the publicity given
the matter by The Bee, and many persons
interested themselves In Uie fate of the
Many offers of homes were made, but
none were exactly satisfactory until this
week, when Mr. Clark has succeeded In
locating the two youngest In a splendid
home In a Nebraska town not far from
Omaha. Husband and wife are among the
town's most prosperous and respected clti
xens, but find their home lonely after
fifteen years of childless wedded life, and
have taken the two children Into their
hearts as well as their home. The second
youngest boy has also been given a home
with a substantial business man, who has
promised to rear him as his own son, and
who had means to give him every ad
vantage of education and training. The
oldest boy Is still at the institute, but cot
respondence and investlgatlop Is under
way that promises to land him, too, In a
good home before very long.
Speaking of the case yesterday, Mr.
Clark said it was a most gratifying out
come to a situation strangely pathetic. He
was particularly well pleased that the
two little folks had fallen Into such good
hands, and said that the prospects for the
second boy are also very bright. If the
older goes where he expects to the four
will all be most happily located.
