The last meeting of the old council was held
yesterday afternoon, all present except Alder
man Bhepard, absent from the city.
THE 8CHOOIi INSPECTOE CONTEST.
Immediately after calling the roll, the unfin
ished business, canvassing the vote for school
inspector in the first district of the Second
ward, was proceeded with, but before the re
sult was announced, Mr. Egan was allowed to
address the council on behalf of the contest
ant, Mr. Thompson.
Mr. Egan said after an examination made by
himself and Mr. Horn, he was satisfied the
council had no power or authority under the
charter or the law, to canvass the
vote of school inspectors. Having no
authority to canvass the vote, Mr. Egan argued
that the mere fact that such had been the cus
tom in the past did not warrant the council in
continuing when its error was pointed out. and
that it ought not to cloud the claims of the
contestant by issuing the certificate to Mr.
City Attorney ^Murray said he had not been
satisfied the council had no authority to make
such canvass, though the authority was not
clearlv set forth in the charter. Such had
been the custom in the past, as it was of all
such bodies, and he thought the canvass in this
case ought to be proceeded with, especially as
the mere declaration could do no harm to the
Aid. Allen saw no difficulty in the matter.
Common practice had established the precedent
so thoroughly as to give it the force ot law.
Aid. Smyth moved that the canvass be pro
ceeded with, which motion prevailed, and the
canvass was completed, the result announced
by the president, and the clerk ordered to issue
the certificate to Mr. Donnelly.
The council then proceeded with the business
upon the table, and report\ wcro submitted as
City Treasurer, receipts from Januaiy 1 to
May 1, $168,408.57 disbursements, $84,846.60.

Of the city engineer, showing loss by fires for
four months, $14,464.35 insurance, $12,774.35.
License fees received since January 1, $16,031.
The annual report of the chief ot police was
presented to the council, and it is a document
of interest. It illustrates several important
social facts. The total number of arrests dur
ing the year was 1,449. In looking over the
list of enmeb for which arrests were made, it
appears that 300 were lor being drunk, or
drunk and disorderly." The report is very
full and complete, showing not only the num
ber of arrests, but the nationalities, crimes
charged, lodgers, and children found, etc., etc.
The matter of paving Jackson street was

MAYOR'S OFFICE, CITY OF ST. PAUL,
May 9th, 1878.
Gentlemen of the Common Council:
It is usual, on the assembling or inaugura
tion of new councils, each year, for the execu
tive officer of the city government to person
ally appear with you and mako a detailed
statement of the workings of the financial and
other departments of the city government
which, combined, are of great interest to the
tax payers and citizens generally.
Upon this occasion, it is utterly impossible
for me to appear before you, and long pro
tracted illness, and my present
feeble condition, prevent my sending vou
ven a (tyuopsis of the reports of the officers of
the various departments. Fortunately at the
present time (although the law should be
changed) our fiscal year commences on the first
day of January, while our municipal year
commences on the first Thursday after the first
Tuesday of May of each year.
The comptroller, treasurer, city attorney,
city clerk, chief of police, chief of fire depart
ment, and other subordinate officers, all made
full and detailed reports on or since the first of
January, and submitted the same, months ago
to the common council, which were accepted bv
them, and published in the official proceedings
in the official paper of the city.
TaeRe reports will prove to be of invaluable
advantage to new members of the council and
I would advise that they give them a thorough
and rigid examination.
Councils should be judged by these
:-^?^1P ,ii^ 'zp&^>%yfv$
good or bad average intelligence and acts
and I am free to say, that, in my opinion, the
council of the past year, and the one to be in
augurated to-day are up to as*high a standard
as will ever occupy seats in your honorable
body, by the votes of the people.
It is the object of all cities to encourage emi
gration, and especially manufacturers, capital
ists, and good honest mechanics and laborers,
who, instead of wrangling over corner lots, and
defrauding each other out of what little they
possess, will put their shoulders together, and
work for one common object, and emblazon on
the city banners the one grand talismanic
watchword, which for the next five generations
will be the only inducement to capitalists, bus
iness men, and the working classes to make
permanent investments in any of our cities. If
we do not unfold to the breeze our banners
with the words economy, in the expenditures
of city funds, assessments low as possible, to
compare with other portiens of the State, and
the rate of taxation so low that we may be
proud of comparison with cities of equal pop
ulation. Other things being equal in regard to
the topography, &c., of the land upon which
the city is built, we can economize and must
throw our banners to the breeze, and with our
mottos scattered broadcast, not only try, but
win in the race for success.
I can give you my full meaning of my. finan
cial policy, by saying to you what I have often
said to previous concils, and that is, "Go slow."
During our early history as a city, our volun
teer fire department made a record that may by
comparison be equaled, but surpassed by none,
but was during the last year disbanded
and our present department was inaugura
ted and made an exclusive paid department.
The advantages of the great change are so plain
to you all that it is useless to comment upon
The police department is not only the pride
of our citizens, but for their efficiency in drill,
gentlemanly deportment, and their prompt
ness in attending to their duties, command
the attention, and call forth expressions of
admiration from strangers visiting the city:
Some of our citizens entertain the opinion
that our rules and regulations governing the po
lice department are too strictly and rigidly
enforced but where policemen are discharged
if citizens interested would call at police head
quarters and inquire into facts, but few of
them would ever sign petitions for their re
During the last session of our Legislature
our city delegation procured the passage of a
law abolishing the office of poundmaster. I
merely mention this matter to observe that no
man living can tell why it was done, and as no
alderman can solve the problem, to save time
The Board of Public Works have proven
themselves to be the right men in the right
placestrictly honest and honorable
and although the law, before its perfection,
worked many and seemingly outrageous hard
ships, depriving people in moderate circum
stances of their all, and leaving them poor and
penniless. But the law is now so perfected
that improvements are made as they should be.
If citizens, who have not visited the comp
troller's and treasurer's offices, and those of
other officers in the city hall, will take the trou
ble to do so, they will find the business tran
sacted_ in a thorough business manner, and
that rich and poor receive the same attention,
and all books are open for the inspection of the
public. I will call the attention of citizens,
many of whom are not cognizant of the fact,
that in electing city officers they are at the
same time voting for candidates who will large
ly control the financial affairs of Ramsey
county. The Mayor, by virtue of his office, is
chairman of the Board of County Commis
sioners, and appoints all the committees.
The Board of Abatement, and of Equaliza
tion, is composed of a major
ity of city aldermen, and the
president of the city council is one of the
number. It is well to bear this fact in mind
hereafter when candidates are being selected
for city aldermen.
Never receiving anything but kind words (or
words quickly spoken in the heat of passion
and as quickly forgiven and forgotten)
from any officer connected with the
city government, I can say, without
any mental reservation or secret evasion,
that I can take every man connected with the
city government, since I held the position of
alderman the first time, by the hand and say
God bless you, I wish you well.
I hope you may work together harmoniously,
and that our beautiful city may grow and pros
per beyond our expectation.
J. T. MAXFIELD. Mayor,
The reading completed and the message re

THE BEADING TOURNAMENT.
An Inaugural Entertainmet of a Series to
Be Given at a Low ]rice.
The reading tournament announced at the
Opera House for next Monday evening is to
be in the nature of a venture in this city on
the part of the management of the dime con
certs of Minneapolis. All winter long Mr.
Gale has given at Association Hall a series of
entertainments, fiist-class in character, which
have drawn crowds. The price of admission
has usually been not more than ten cents, va
ried now and then by a "quarter night" of un
usual excellence, which have proved quite as
popular. It has been demonstrated that it
is as profitable to entertain a great
number of people for a very small amount of
money, instead of a small number of people
for a great deal of money. The request has
repeatedly been made of the dime concert
management to inaugurate a series of enter
tainments here, and the venture will be made
on next Monday evening, the continuance of
the series depending entirely upon the recep
tion that is met. It will be a quarter night,
and in the nature of a reading tournament, in
which five ladies will participate. Miss Clara
Murdock, of this city, has consented to be one
of this number, and her success as a reader
in one of the dime concerts at Minneapolis
will give an interest to her first appearance in
public here since her return from study in the
East. The other ladies are Miss Jessie Cauthani,
who stands at the head of her profession, Miss
Helen Mar White, the Winona girl who has
read successfully in the East, Miss Fanny Hol
lister, of Chicago, and Miss Mollie Dorman, of
Minneapolis. It is a big bill to give for 25
cents. The sale of seats will commence to
morrow morning at the box office in the Opera
Card from Mr. Iiingtcald.
To the Editor of the Globe:
As the smoke of the recent aldermanic battle
in the first precinct of the Fourth ward has
about blown away, and as I was the standard
bearer, so to speak, of the Democracy in that
fight, I beg the privilege of reporting back
through your columns, to those who have felt
at all interested, either in my election or de
feat, my experience in that my first campaign.
Having been fairly nominated, I was entitled
to the support of my party, and supposed that
I was to have it. I did not think that the rule
or ruin policy which has very nearly given
this city and county into the hands of Repub
licans, was to be applied to me.
But in spite of the secret caucus, and the
fact that the "bolting" which seems to be too
fashionable for the health of the party was in
dulged in, I could even then have succeeded
but for the use of money at the polls by mv
As all who know me are aware, I am a poor
man, and if I had the disposition to do so, I
had not the money to offer to any voter, and
those who did kindly support me, did it, I am
proud to say, without any other inducement
but their friendship and confidence in me. But
had 1 been as financially able as my opponent.
I should never have condescended to the act
as it is, (to say nothing of members of Chrisl
tian churches in good standing) a custom, that
every citizen should denounce under all cir
cumstances, as injurious to air public and
private rights of every true and worthy citizen.
I conclusion I wish to say, that had the
Democrats, or a certain few in my precinct
lived up to the advice of the GLOBE, to stand
by the party nominees, I should have been
elected, any way, making in the city
a complete Democratic victory. Grate
fully thanking my friends for their very
generous support, and pardoning the errors of
my opponents, and under all the circumstances
not considering my defeat a very valuable vic
tory to my opponent, I remain respectfully

Two days in succession, Wednesday and last
night, the fire alarm telegraph has proved itself
utterly at fault by failing to strike the proper

there is no such box in existence. The sooner
this is remedied the better it will be, the less
confusion will arise, and the greater security
will be felt.

At 3 o'clock the assembly was called to order,
and the Rev. J. H. Morley was appointed
moderator, and Rev. G. A. Hood, scribe.
The scribe was asked to read the document
relating to the call of Di. Dana. The first was
a resolution of the church committee, the sec
ond the ratification of the action of the church
by the society, and fixing the pastor's salary at
$2,500 per annum. The third Dr. Dana's let
ter of acceptance, a verjr
It was moved and seconded, and unanimous
ly carried, that the documents be regarded sat
Presentation of credentials was next in order,
and Dr. Dana handed to the scribe three docu
ments, the first a certificate of church member
ship, the second a certificate of ministerial
membership, and the third an honorable dis
missal from his late pastorate.
These were also voted satisfactory. The ex
amination of the pastor elect was next pro
ceeded with, and Dr. Dana made a statement
of religious experience from the time of his
early Christian training through his converhion,
his attending Amherst college and Union Theo
logical seminary, his first appointment and
thirteen years ministry in the same parish.
He was then asked to give his theological
belief, which he did briefly, showing his con
victions respecting the existence and nature of
God the inspiration of the scriptures the
word of God as the rule ot faith: his idea of
inspiration doctrines of revealed religion
the Trinity first state of man, his fallen state*
of depravity universal and total temporal,
spiritual and second death resurrection of just
and unjust endless punishment for the finally
wicked, and endless bliss for the finallvjust
the Lord's supper and baptismal.
He was then questioned closely upon
many points by the council, namely, his views
on the atonement, the divinity of Christ, doc
trine ot regeneration, chief agencies legen
eration, personality of the Holy Ghost the
wordits part in regeneration, justification,
sanctification. He was closely questioned upon
these and asked to explain the term impotency
as he used it. He was asked to explain "eter
nal life," and the question was put' "Do you
believe in a second probation?" to which he
answered "No." He was also asked to give his
opinion of the second coming of Christ and the
relation of baptism of infants with the church,
and if he thought the world is getting worse.
At this stage it was resolved the examination
terminate and the council adjourned till half
past 2 o'clock.
The evening service of installation was held
in the church, which was filled with a large
congregation, to witness the interesting cere
monial. The services were opened by the
choir singing an anthem, after which the mod
erator Rev. J. H. Morley of Winona, made his
statement and the scribe read from the min
utes, the proceedings in the chapel, and the
decision of the council. The Rev. J. W. Ray
of Wabashaw, invoked the Divine blessing
upon the proceedings, and the Rev. C. E.
Wright of Easton, read appropriate portions of
scripture. The "Te Deum" was then fairly
sung by the choir, after which the Rev. C. L.
Goodell, D. D., of St. Louis preached the ser
mon. He took for his text the words:
"Tell me I pray thee wherein thy gieat
strength lieth." Judges 16 Ch. 6 v.
The sermon was a very able one, bristling
with wit, and happy truisms, and wholesome
lessons tersely expressed. He said that feed
ing God's flock was the noblest calling. All
Christians should be laborers in the vineyard,
and it was necessary to understand the ele
ments of Buccess. He spoke at consideiable
length upon the importance of the work in the
Sabbath school, in the mission school, and
home evangelical work, and it requires power
Divine and human to accomplish it. He made
four suggestions the first was the necessity of
a sound mind, using a wise discretion in all
things, wisdom in speech and action, and a
right application of God's word. No one is
qualified to teach who has not a sound mind
an egg is good, or nothing. Fish is good, but
not everything that is fishy. He refened to
Paul as a model Christian, with good, sound
business principles, well acquainted with
the world and the worldly wise. It is
important that a minister should have a
sound head. He should be as capable
of governing a fast horse as to keep his tongue
quiet at a sewing societyfast horses have un
seated many a minister. No man should work
harder, rise earlier, be more temperate or eco
nomical than a minister. His life should be a
standard of all that is true and beautiful and
good. The world can see a fly on a church
steeple two miles off, but it fails to see the
church. But a minister must draw his life
like the flowers from beyond the sky, and
therefore, secondly, a knowledge of scriptures
is absolutely necessary. The word is spirit
and life, and through the word is growththe
soul-building power. The third essential
was an acquaintanceship with Godthe book
carries the mind beyond the book to the gates
of life and says "Behold the King."
It is greater to know God than His works. It
is worse to be ignorant of the creator than of
the thing created. It is something to be visit
ed by angels, but it is more to be visited by
God himself. The bible is a love letter, but
Christ is the beloved. We love those with
whom we commune and whom we know better
than those we know not. Acquaintance with
God is the greatest power given to the strongest
side of man's nature. A Christian's prayer is
a Christian's power. In illustration of his ar
gument the speaker confounded Mary Queen of
Scots with Mary the Third of England, who on
her death bed said Calais would be found en
graven on her heart.
The fourth suggestion was that for success
the minister must be imbued with the Holy
GhoRtthat power from on high, the baptism
of fire to win souls. God clothes his priests
with salvation, puts on them the armor
of light that others may sec. The learning of
the schools is of no avail without the power of
the Almightythe power bestowed at Pente
cost. Church builders have always been good
men, full of the Holy Ghost. He illustrated
with the beautiful fable of the desert island
upon which a white plumed dove dropped a
seed and the island was covered with verdure.
He summed up by quoting the inscription up
on Bunyan's monument at Bedford, England.
After the sermon Rev. J. H. Morley offered
the installing prayer, and then the choir sang
hymn 1,010 after which the Rev. D. L. Leon
ard delivered the charge to the pastor, com
mencing by congratulating himself on having
the duty assigned to him. He called to mind
the time when he and the pastor elect studied
their Hebrew and Greek together. The remin
iscences were pleasant to himeven the thought
of their having to stand on one side when
suspicion of their orthodoxy was made a sub
ject of serious consultation at an examination.
His task was the easier he said, because the
candidate was no neophite or fledgeling, but a
minister of 13 years standing. In his charge
he warned the pastors against remembering too
vividly that he was from Boston,
he must realize that he is i
the far West and get accustomed to his
people and their waysmany good men have
been brought to grief by imaginingUthee

ruts and stickling for ideas honored by age.
Give them a happy gospel, and eschew fogs and
mists and melancholy. Be joyful in the Lord,
rejoice in the Lord always, and again, I say, re
joice. Teach the people by example. Be a peace
maker go to the sad and sorrowing ones and
carry to them the peace of God. He should re

he left New Englandmultitudes of sinners,
unpenitent and half penitent, abound. Cry
out against sin, and show by a holy life the
true way to holiness.
The Rev. H. A. Stimson gave the right hand
of fellowship, in a very earnest and impressive
The address to the people was made by the
Rev. L. H. Cobb. He particularly referred to
the matter of paying the pastor, Baying that
they should not consider his salary a benevo
lence, but money for value received.
The choir then sang the Jubilate, and the
pastor offered prayer and pronounced the bene
diction, which terminated the services.
The altar was tastefully decorated with some
floral devices of beautiful design and artistic
taste by Mrs. Higbee and the ladies.
A fellowship meeting will be held to-day,
commencing at 9 o'clock.
