A Special Meeting of the CouncilDoubts
About Capt. Starkey Doing the Work in

Starkey's Contract Confirmed.
The common council had a special ses
The object of the called meeting was to
consider the Jackson street pavement mat
ter and to confirm the award of contract
made by the board of public works.
Aid. Sanborn raised the question that a
quorum was present for the transaction of
ordinary business, bat to confirm a contract
it requited 8 votes.
President Rhodes took the same view, and
established it by reference to the law on the
BBING 'EM IN FBOM THE BY-WAYS.
Thereupon Clerk O'Connor dispatched a
messenger to bring in some alderman in ci
Pending the return of the messenger, Aid.
Dowlan came in, making the necessary
The clerk read the report of the board of
public works making the award.
Aid. Sanborn offered a resolution confirm
ing the award, provided the work was done
within sixty days, and provided further that
the said Starkey shall pay the ten cents per
square yard royalty for the use of the Stowe
WHO IS TO PAY THE ROYALTY?
Aid. Allen thought sixty days was too long
a time. The work, to make it satisfactory,
should be completed in forty-five days. Any
further delay would rush the work into win
ter, and then the work would be retarded or
badly done, owing to the cold. On the ques
tion of royalty, the speaker said, confusion
again arose. The speaker said he had
heard that Mr. Starkey expected the city to
donate to him the royalty this matter should
be clearly understood, 'lhe gentleman feared
this feature would raise up a
that vexed state of affairs, Mr, Starkey pro
posed, BO the understanding was, to have the
city reserve the 10 per cent, royalty, and pay
it out after the work was finished. The
whole matter was yet mixed up in provisos,
and moreover, the speaker didn't believe
that he, Starkey, could do the work at all for
the money. The speaker was in favor of
having the pavement completed this winter,
and it Mr. Starkey meant to evade it, he, the
speaker, wanted the contract let to the next
lowest bidder. The next lowest biddar guar
anteed to have the work done in thirty days
and would furnish bonds of $10,000 to that
effect. The speaker moved to amend Aid.
Sanborn's resolution by inserting forty-five
days for six days.
Mr. Murray thought the contract should
not be awarded unless it was distinctly un
derstood that Mr. Starkey would finish the
contract in the specified time. He, Starkey,
had bid on certain specifications, and he,
the speaker, didn't think it advisable to fur
ther limit the time by inserting forty-five
for sixty days.
President Khodes stated that the propeity
owners he represented would prefer the mat
ter postponed until spring, unless the work
was speedily completed before cold weather.
MB. STABKEY WANTED.
Aid. Dowlan suggested that Mr. Starkey
be sent for to respond to what inquiries the
council were pleased to propound.
Aid. Rhodes didn't see the necessity of
having him here.
Mr. Murray understood that Mr. Starkey
expected the city to give him the royalty,
and some understanding ought to be reached
in this matter.
Aid. Alleii suggested the appointment of a
committee to consult with Mr. Starkey, re
port, and at a special meeting the question
could be settled.
Aid. O'Connor wanted a vote on the reso
Aid. Allen withdrew his amendment to
Aid. Sanborn's resolution.
Aid. Sanborn withdrew his resolution, as
the law provided for the same thing, and the
resolution was offered to give Capt. Starkey
a distinct notice that the city would not be
liable for the royalty.
THE OONTBAOT OONFIBMED.
The confirmation of the contract was put,
and received eight votes in the affirmative,
none in the negative.

How She Wore the Breeches.
A parade of dress reformers took place in
this city, Friday evening. The obscurity of
night was taken advantage of, because the
fit and hang of the garments were not easy,
on first trial. The procession was formed of
two young ladies, one in complete male at
tire the other did the* languishing business
on the arm of the bifurcated party. The
procession formed about 8 o'clock on Thir
teenth street, and marched down Jackson to
Bobert street. There the twain paid a call
on a young lady, and the "gent" made a de
cided mash. The decided impression made,
mutually, could have been passed
off all right, had not an
unfortunate contretemps happened when
the visitors took their departure. The young
hostess reached out a dainty hand to be
pressed by the "gentleman." By some in
advertency he oi she had put his or her
hands in the pantaloons pockets, and being
unused to the arrangement, for the life of
her or him, she or he couldn't get 'em out.
Moral: Marry and you can wear the breeches
and have no bother about the pocketsif
kept full as a proviJent husband should
keep 'em for his chick-a-biddy.

HE REPUBLICAN SLATF_,
AS SHOWN BY THE RESULTS OF THE
The Conte st for Sheriff Gets a tittle
ExcitementGeo. S. Acker Apparently
the Coming VictimLamentable Lack of
Interest in the Other County Officers
Probable Legislative CandidatesScen es
The Republicans of St Paul have taken
the place of Wilkins Micawber, and they fill
it well. They are always expecting some-
thing to turn up which will bring grist to
their mill, and they come smiling every
year just as though nothing had happened.
They are "at it agin" now, and seem to be
enjoying themselves just as well as though
defeat was not certain. But it is all the
Their primary meetings were held last
night to elect delegates to their county con
vention to-morrow. The primaries were un
usually well atttended, and at some of the
precincts more interest was manifested than
is frequently exhibited on election day. The
contest was between Geo. S Acker and Chas.
Passavant, each of whom are anxious for
he empty honor of a nomination for sheriff.
O olher office does there seem to
have been any contest whatever. For audi
tor no name is yet presented, and for probate
judge Chas. N Bell appears to be the only
candidate. The legislative slate appears to
be harmoniously fixed up, the Senatorial
nominees to be Stanford Newell, from the
First, Second and Third wards and C.
Gilfillan from the Fourth and Fifth wards
and county. The slate ills for Representa
tive nominees, as follows: First and Second
wards, Dr. Murphy Third ward, ft C.
Wiley Fourth ward, W Mead Fifth
At the various precincts the drumming up
of votes was lively. I the First ward there
was no particular attention paid to who
voted. Each side wanted votes and they
took 'em as they came, "without regard to
race, color or previous condition of servi-
tude." One of the delegates on the Acker
ticket is a prominent Democrat and he help
ed pull he ticket through.
A the Second and Third ward polls there
was no excitement worthy of note. Shortly
after 6 o'clock a pretty steady stream of
voters came forward and deposited their
ballots. A few were challenged on account
of being Democrats, but they took the mat
ter good-naturedly. Five First ward dele
gate tickets were voted at the Second ward
poll, and four at the Third ward. The
ballots were soon counted, and the anxious
ones departed, some with a smile and others
with a sigh, and all with their eyes fixed upon
he nearest dispensary of foaming beer.
The voting in the Fourth waid was
promptly commenced as soon as the poll was
opened. The voting went on expeditiously,
and the last lingering ballot was dropped in
about 6:30 o'clock. Shortly after, he poll
was closed, and the tedious process of count
ing the votes commenced. Overhauling the
tickets, there was found to have been some
scratching. And for a ti me it seemed to be
all tor Passavant. The result was not made
known until nine o'clock. Everything was
fairly quiet a small riffle amused the crowd,
as John Kensler stepped up to John Lesh
and stated it was his profane wish that John
wouldn't get a vote. Becoming
a little warmer, he was very
complimenta ry to Lesh, and
closed up his little speech with a wholesale
lot of epithets. Mr. Sanborn hung over
he court, and his "watching and waiting"
was of some use he got in. Mr. Hughson
did the same amount of labor in that way
but didn't get in. On the whole the affair
was very tame, next to no enthusiasm i emg
In the Fifth ward there was quite a large
crowd tfhd numerous teams running for
voters. The Acker ticket bore the name of
Castle, the editor of the Dispatch, which,
perhaps, accounts for that paper having been
so loud in announcing that Republican dele
gates were trying to go to the convention in
order to get $500 from Jim King and Lee
Davis. But Castle bit the dust, and hence
he never can tell us, save in prospective, the
narrow chance which the Republican party
ran of being corrupted. Ex-Aid.
Fisher was one of the judges and that set
tled it. He was for Passavant, and as night
brings out the stars, so Fisher brought out
Passavant. The count had not progressed
far before the Acker men began to get sick,
and one by one they slipped away unob
served and unsung. A GLOBE reporter had
the temerity to visit this precinct with a
team, and as a sad consequence his whip was
stolen from his carriage while he was watch
ing Fisher and Lindeke to see that they did
not stuff the ballot box. This is another warn
ing, and shows the precaution necessary in
attending the gatherings of that party which
is ready to steal anything, from the Presi
dency up to a reporter's whip.
The following is the result by wards in de
There were 202 votes cast, the Acker ticket
receiving 108 votes, the Passavant ticket 78,
and the split, or Lesh ticket, 16. The follow
ing were the Acker delegates elected:

There were 111 votes cast at the Second ward
primary, held at the old court house. Of this
number the Acker ticket received 71,
the Passavant ticket 22, and the Lesh
ticket 10. The delegates elected were: C.

For Lesh: Chas. Shandrew, M. Miller,

In the third ward 143 votes were cast in a
cigar box, placed in the police station. Of
these the Acker ticket received 85, the Passa
vant ticket 52, while the Lesh ticket got the
balance. The successful ticket was as follows:
Stantord Newel, W. D. Cornish, E. L. Larpen
teur, A. Perkins, C. E. Chapel, L. Fisher.
The delegates defeated were:
For Passavant: C. Chapel, Z. M. Lyons,
