CBCAMJlElt Or COMMERCE.
Receiving St. Louis VisitorsRailroad Dis-
criminationsShall the Fort 3nelling
Bridjre be Rail and Wago Combined.
Gen. Sibley presided yesterday morning over
luitc a respectable number of members in at
tendance upon the regular weekly session of
the chamber commerce.
Communications were received from the
Montana board of trade relating to the ind us
uries \i that territory, and from the United
States board of trade of New York, regarding
the new bankrupt law.
Mr. Thomas Dowse presented the chamber
with maps of that portion of the Canadian
territory through which the Canadian Pacific
tailroad will pass, together with plan*-, profiles,
etc, of the road. The thanks of the chamber
*or this seasonable gift was tendered to the
rlonor. on motion of Colonel Hewitt.
Major Dawson handed in hiB resignation as a
dueetor of the chamber. On motion of Capt.
Blakely, the resignation was not accepted, but
the mayor was excused attendance.
It then appeared that the resignation of Gen.
Cieurg L. Becker as a member of the chamber
hud been tendered some time ago, and as that
gentleman hud ceased to attend, the chair
thought Mr. Becker had concluded his resigna
tion had been accepted. Referred to the com
mittee on nominations.
A SI. LOUIS EXCURSION.
The chair submitted the following:
MINNEAPOLIS, Jul 12, 1S7H.
Jen. H. II. Sibley, Piesident Chamber of Com
merce St. Paul.
DEAR SI R: Arrangements are being now pei
fected for an excursion of the business and
1 epresentativc ram ot the city of St, Loui- to
(his State the coming vvesk.
It is proposed that the pauy, about fifty in
number, shall pass one day in St. Paul. The
party will arrive on the evening of the loth
(Tuesday) and will remain in the State until
the Sunday evening following.
Will it be ngieeible for our friends in St.
Paul to take charge oi the party for one day,
and whrtt day would be preferred, if either?
An early icply will oblige youis truly,
Pres't Board Tiade of Minneapolis.
Mr. Wm. Lee moved its retcrenee to tho
common council, which was amended by Gen.
Bishop's moving its lefcienee to a special com
mittee of five, with power to act. The
-intendment ha\ prevailed, gicat
rtitnuilty was expeiioncctl by the chau
in filling the ranks of the committee
consequence of the appointees declining
tor vaiinns leasons. 1 lnully. Gen. 11. W. John
son, Capt. Barney and D. W. lngeisolJ woie
secured, who were empowered to add two
Mtheis to their number, and weie given power
Me- In icply to a question from Mi. J. W
Clung, Mi. F. Dnscoll said that he had com
municated with the agent of the associated
press, legretting the tiansmission, as press re
poits, ot the ciop and other statistics ot the
State, und that ofheei had replied he would
lay the mattei befoie the annual meeting ol
iho Association, winch would occur soon.
Mr. J. W. McClung said leports of railroad
freight disciimiiiatioi against St. Paul Irid
rome within his knowledge, and he, thereto re,
offered the following, which he moved be lefci
'od to the tianspoitution committee with Mi.
Banning added theieto.
Kfsoh'id, That the committee on tianspoi
tution be dnected to inquire and teport wheth
er St. Paul is enjoying all the advantages in tho
matter of tieight she is entitled to undei the
law, and,if not, what meiisuics are necessary to
opciuc such advantages.
This brought Gen. Bishop to his leet, who
emphatically maintained that, as iar as the St.
Paul A, SIOUK City railroad was concerned, no
such discrimination existed. On the eontiary,
wheat was tianspoited to this city the St.
Paul A Siou\ City load at one and a half cents
jier bushel less than to Minneapolis. (Ap-
Mi. McClung having disclaimed any inten
tion of making a charge that discrimination
xisted, Mr. Banning said he would ha\e noth
ing to do with the mattei until the legislature
had denned the latcs, as they had the powei to
do under a recent decision of the United St'ites
supreme coiut. The St. Paul & Sioux City
joad had been coustiucted by means ot an im
mense land grant, and the people had a light
to expect fiom it the fairest dealing.
Again Gen. Bishop aiose, and said the lurid
grant of the St. Paul & Sioux City road, when
ceded to it, was a worthless tract, which had
long gone a begging, and was valueless until
the road opened it up to civilization. As to
Jtie load in question, it had always favored St.
Paul as its terminal point.
After some further remarks from Mr. Ban
ning, the whole mattei was tabled, on motion
of Mi. James Smith, Ji
in the ioim of Piesidcnt Wright and others, ot
the Noithein Pacific laihoad, were announced
as in the city by Mr. Ingersoll, who suggeoted
that citizens should confer with them relative
to lailioad piojcctb.
FORT SNELLINO BRIDGE.
Col. Allen dehveitd one of the most sensible
speeches the chamber has listened to
loi some time. the Fort Snelling
bridge being the topic. claimed that the
stinctuie should be utilized as a railroad as
well as a wagon budge. Some lawyers hadsaid
that, as the act merely specified a wagon
budge, it could i ot be used as a railroad
budge alfo. Othei lawveis held an adveise
opinion. It a man could puichase two hoibes,
equally good, io i the price of one, he would
certainly buy the two, even if he had to wait
to utilize the second hoise. held that a
vaihoiid would assmedly be built on the west
Mile ot the Mississippi, and other raihoad
piojocts woie on toot which would gladlj av.ul
themselves ot the structure, and the loads
would thus have their terminus in St. Paul.
The speaker maintained that not near
sufficient investigation had been had in the
premises. Only one engineer had been
employed, while the skill ot experienced biidge
builders and contiactois had been entirely ig
nored. bi lieved the budge would be found
to cost less than the appioprratrons already
voted for it, even it it were of the double
character he advocated. (Applause.)
'Ihe lesnlt of the colonel's sphited addiess
was the appointment of a committee ot confer
ence with the budge commissioners, consisting
of Messrs. John M. Gilman, James Smith, Ji.
C. D. Gilfillan and A. Allen.
The chamber then adjourned

liOATtD OF PUBLIC WORKS.
Jackson Street Paving AwardThe Rice
Street Sewer Trouble.
A special meeting of the board of public
works was held yesterday afternoon, all the
members being piesent.
THE JACKSON STREET PAVE5IENT
came up a^ain for consideration. I a com
munication the city engineer reiterated his for
mer statement that the bid for the "Alexander
Miller" pavement was much the highest, and
that he did not consider it enough better than
the others to be worth the difference in cash.
Besides, the bid was incomplete. The other
bids were tor the ''Storr" pavement, patented
December, 1872, Th only difference in the
three bids was in the depth of the sand founda
tion. The engineer preferred the largest depth,
as specified in the bid by Mr. McLeod, but the
three had been equalized by computing the
matter as earth-work, when the bid stood as
follows: James Starkey $4,940 14
L. H.Patchen 5,985 67
A. A. McLeod 7,039 60
Both Ml. htirkey and Mr. McLeod claimed
there was no patent, while Mr, Patchen agreed
to pay tho loyalty, rf any, and to procure the
city the right to repair and renew.
The contract was awarded to James Starkey,
the lowest biddei, on condition that the city
be protected in the matter of patent rights.
In response to the invitation the board
that bidders would express their views regard
ing the payments they offered, Mr. Wm. M.
Trleston gave detarls of the "Alexander
Miller" pavement, of which he is the duly au
thorized agent. claimed for It the highest
points of excellence. Stress had been laid by
the city engineer as to the depth of the foun
dation sand of the different bids, as to whether
four inches or six inches were specified. That
officer had declared his preference for the
greater depth, and he (Trleston) offered in his
bid to put in four inches of sand
and two of wood, thus making the
foundation depth preferred by the
engineei, and of a more substantial character
than the others. As to the informality of his bid
in not itemizing the vairous points of the
specification, he showed that his proposal in
(luded the whole, paving and grading, and he
had thus submitted it under the mstructrons
ot the crty engineer. In the opinion of Mr.
Tileston, rt was high time the city should put
down something more satisfactory and durable
in the way of pavement than the rickety,
always-out-of-repair arrangement that drs-
gracedThrid street. This, the Miller pavement
would uriush. concluded by requesting
liberty to withdraw his bid, which was granted.
THE INTERMINABLE RICE STREET SEWER
was again on the carpet. A new complication
had arisen. The men had btruck for their
wages. Again, the contractor, Patrick Nash,
claimed there was a difference between the
plans and the specifications, the latter calling
for a higher class of work than the former,
which would necessrtate a longer trme in the
construction. The city engineer acknowledged
the discrepency, but said the specifications
would legally hold ovei the plans. Mr. Nash
was drrected to proceed with the
work accordrng to the engineer's instructions,
and any extras would be a matter for subse

The grading of L'Oiient street was referred
to the city engineer for plans and estimates.
Jacob Manizer's bill for abstracts furnished,
previously referred to the clerk, was returned
by hrm snowing overcharges to the amount of
$34.10. Bill allowed less that sum.
The preliminary estimate for grading La
fayette avenue wa oidered to the council.
The usual estimates were allowed, as under:
Ohio street grading, $131.75 St. Peter sheet
sewer, $88.62 Ninth street sewer, $534.65 and
the Rice stieet sewer, $3,055.75. The last was
gianted on the conditon that the contractor put
ou a sufficient force to warrant the boaid in
believing that the woik would be accomplished
