of the Third ward returned two hundred
and sixty-nine votes for Mahoney, but the
city council canvassers dropped sixty of
them and gave him only two hundred and
nine. Mahoney's official majority was one
hundred and eighteen. It should hive

tion of such suspicious conduct on the
part of a public board. He
was politely informed that the commission
had in its discretion decided that in the
interest of the city at large and in general
it would prove much better to exclude the
reports of its transactions from public
print from the fact that just so soon as the
interested property owners learned that a
park was to be located in a certain locality,
a largo number of bogus land transfers
would follow, placing the officers of the
board into troublesome and occasionally
serious complications. The Globe gives
the excuse for what it is worth. Suffice it
to say that the secret session is looked upon
with much suspicion by the public.

HIQ H LICENSE, ORDINA NCE.

Long Message—The Veto Sustained by the
Council—An Attempt to Pass a New Or
An adjourned meeting of the city coun
cil was held last night with every alderman
in his seat, and the , lobby completely
packed by an interested crowd of specta
tors. The veto message of Mayor Ames
'was the first business taken up. The fol
lowing is the message:
Mayob's Office, >
Minneapolis, Minn., April 18,1883. )
To the Honorable. City Council of the
City of Minneapolis—Gentlemen: I here
with return to your honorable body, with
out my approval, an ordinance, entitled
"an ordinance regulating license in the
city, of Minneapolis," for the following
reasons: i' 3; -J
First— in section 5, chapter 4, of
the city charter, subdivisions first, nine
teenth and -fourth, are given the vo
cations and things that the city council
may license. I find in the ordinance above
referred to that you have provided for li
censing the following vocations and things
which are not authorized under said char
ter: The licensing of pool-tables, astrolo
gers, fortune-tellers, Chinese-ball games,
and all other games, (except nine or ten
pin alleys) wherein any ball, ring, shot or
missile is shot, thrown, or in any manner
propelled against any mark, image, or ob
ject whatever. There being no authority
for collecting these licenses, I recommend
that they be stricken from the list of voca
tions and things to be licensed. In my
opinion you can regulate these things, but
you cannot impyse a license. In the ordi
nance passed you provide for a license on
pool tables, billiard tables, bowling alleys,
shooting galleries, etc., and in another por
tion you provide for another license fee for
"all games wherein any ball, (ring, shot)
or missile is thrown, or in any manner pro
pelled against any mark, image, or obsta
cle whatever." This imposes two taxes
against billiards and pool.
Second —You provide in the ordinance
what I consider to be too small foes or
charges to be made for hacks in carrying
passengers. If carried into effect it would
result in the withdrawal of hacks from our
streets, which would sadly cripple a busi
ness necessity. As an illustration of one
of the evil effects of the ordinance as
passed I cite you to the provision which
provides that infants under five years of
age, if accompanied by adults, shall not be
charged for conveyance. If some kindly
disposed person should desire to give a
dozen children a ride for a few hours, the
owners of hacks might be made victims to
your proposed law.
Third—ln another section you provide
that male and female prostitutes shall not
be allowed in saloons. As this is some
what vague it might be well to designate
whether you mean by the term "male
prostitutes" the males who prostitute the
Fourth—You provide also that no
gambling or game of chance. shall be car
ried on in licensed saloons, and still in
another section you provide for billiards,
pool, etc., which are games of chance, and
that they may be carried on if the privilege
is paid for.
Fifth — is also provided in the ordin
ance that the concerts, theatrical and oper
atic performances of any society, whereat
the singers, actors or performers do hot
receive compensation for their services
shall not be charged a license; but if said
singers, actors or performers do receive
compensation for their services a license of
twenty-five dollars shall be exacted for
each performance. Now, the fact exists
that the Turner society, Harmonia society,
Norden society, Crusader's society, Good
Templar's and many other kindred socie
ties do give entertainments where not only
foreign talent appears, but where, univer
sally, the bands engaged to furnish instru
mental music, are regularly paid for their
Sixth —A license of one thousand dollars
is placed upon theaters. This, in my
opinion, would work injustice in two di
rections. It would close permanently
theaters which play stock companies with
an occasional "star" and which are sup
ported at "popular prices" by the poor
people who are not supposed to be pos
sessed of the requisite culture and wealth
to patronize the plundering operatic
schemes and prices of the present mo
To make my ideas more thoroughly un
derstood I recommend that every foreign
theatrical, operatic or concert troupe that
plays in the city be charged twenty-five
dollars for each performance. This is
a very modest charge when circuses are
taxed five hundred dollars per day and
three hundred dollars for each succeeding
day. The amount of money taken out
of the city by each is not in proportion
to the charges made for license. If twen
ty-five dollars is charged for our principal
hall —and we now have but oneand it
should average four nights per week
(which is a moderate estimate) the city
would realize $5,200 per year. The for
eign companies that are to come here will
be properly bled anyhow; and the ques
tion is whether the city shall receive the
blood money, or whether it shall go to
those who gleefully laugh at the proposi
tion to rob their neighbors, but ask you to
let them go scot free. The fact is the peo
ple who dance have to pay the fiddler in
the outcome. As these performances re
quire police services in and around the
halls where they are held they should be
required to help pay the expense which
they of necessity incur. In cases where
there are theaters run with permanent or
stock companies, where the members are
residents of the city, (occasionally sup
porting "stars") I think the sum of one
hundred dollars per year a sufficient li
cense for them to pay.
I Seventh now come to what I con
sider the most objectionable feature of the
ordinance under consideration. The coun
cil has chosen to make the licenses for the
sale of liquor a political issue. With the
best of feeling towards every member of
your honorable body and with malice to-,
ward none of my fellow citizens who differ
with me I take up the gauntlet thrown
down by the majority.
I was elected to the official position I
now hold upon the same issue presented
by this clause of the ordinance; and it was
then thoroughly understood by our citizens
generally, what my views were upon the
subject. Personally, and in a finan
cial' point of view, it does not make a pen
ny's difierence to me whether the license to
sell liquor in Minneapolis is ten cents or
ten thousand dollars. At my election one
year ago it was well known that I had ve
toed an ordinance to raise the liquor li
cense; that 1 was a pronounced broad
gauge candidate on this question, while my
honorable opponent was, by his forced pub
lic expressions, made an advocate of the
experiment you are now seeking to inaug
urate. On this plain issue I was elected by
nearly eighteen hundred majority. But it
is claimed that in the recent election pub
lic opinion declared for high license. That
claim, in my opinion, is not founded in
fact. The Democrats carried the city by
electing their general officers, and the al
dermanic contt '- resulted in the election
of three Demo. •■=, three Republicans and
four pronounced Prohibitionists. The
THE ST. PAUL DAILY GLOBE, WEDNESDAY MO&NING* APRIL 25 1883.
losal contests in the wards were warped by
purely local issues such as locality, nation
ality, and promises of ward improvements.
Notwithstanding these side issues the "gen
eral ticket of Democrats was carried
through triumphantly. I mention' this to
show that high license was not an issue. j I
do not believe that a majority of the peo
pie favor high license; and as I was elect
ed as an opponent to that issue I must
confess that as my opinion is unchanged
it is my duty to follow the instruction giv
en me by a direct vote of the people. I am
not a fanatic; end while I have decided
convictions on all public topics I have
never tried to cram them down other peo
ple's throats; nor have I ever tried to make
others live by any other rule than the
standard erected by their own conscience.
During the recent contest a professed pro
hibitionist drank three hot whiskys with
an influential and broad gauge Republican
two nights before election. That is none
of my business, but that was probably his
way of conducting a high moral, high li
cense campaign to a successful issue, and
he has probably ere this . settled that mat
ter with his conscience.
By the well arranged admirably executed
tactics entered into by the minority of
your honorable body at tho time of the
passage of this ordinance, the majority
was placed upon a record of which every
avenue for a "backdown" was securely
fenced up. In the future there will be no
question as to where they stood or what
they meant by their votes. The high li
cense figure was reached by the minority,
by the prohibition split from the majority.
Then the majority refused to reconsider,
and finally voted for the high license not
withstanding that they refused to vote for
the measure when it was an amendment.
If high license was an issue at the election
why did the majority refuse to vote for it
when the unexpected opportunity was
presented ? Was that an honest response
to an expressed public sentiment?
I have never by word or inference been
asked to, nor pledged myself to pursue any
course so far as the liquor license in this
city is concerned. The only public expres
sion of sentiment on this subject ever
made by me, that I can now recall, was my
I veto message to the council of this city
seven years ago in which I took grounds
that I fully endorse to-day.
The liquor traffic is a Republican
nurtured, national as well as state, foster
child. - It grew and flourished and was
made a respectable calling as long as it
danced to the Republican fiddle. Its deal
ers were classified as merchants, and the
white-aproned manipulators behind the
bars were called clerks; they were admitted
to the parlors of the first families; the
best seats in the churches which their
money helped to build, were none to good
for them; and they were generally conceded
to have estimable families and promising
children. Now that they refuse to longer
remain the dubes and tools of the party in
power they are called 'Turn-sellers" by the
■press, and from the pulpit, and their once
estimable families and promising children
are shunned and scoffed at by the "re
formed" and 'purified."
As a public measure I believe the execu
tive's approval of this ordinance, or its
passage notwithstanding the veto, would
prove a public calamity. In my opinion
it would so shake public confidence as to
cause our securities to decrease in value.
Real estate would shrink from present
prices and business generally would become
stagnated. And why? Because a majority
of the capitalists and men of small means
who are buying real estate, building blocks,
mills, workshops and homes in Minneapo
lis at this time are men who are not pre
pared to live under the old Blue Laws in
this the nineteenth century. As a general
proposition I state the fact, without trying
to explain why, that there is not a prosper
ous city in the United States where the
sale of liquor is prohibited or held down
by an ordinance like the one under consid
eration; nor is there a dilapidated town
with decreasing inhabitants and business
that a "no license" law is not in force.
The moment a corporation commences to
deprive the masses of their personal liber
ties just so soon do those who have any
spirit left take Horace Greeley's advice and
A 1,500 license would be, virtually, pro
hibition to all except a few rich saloon
keepers in the city. Do the members of
your honorable body wish to go on record
as the representatives of the rich when
nine out of ten of our citizens are poor?
I am thankful that the time has not yet ar
rived, although there are mutterings of its
approach in the near future, when a poor
man's vote is not as powerful as the mil
I am not prepared to say how this $1,500
license would operate in this community;
nor am I willing by my aid, to try an ex
periment which has worked disaster to all
great cities in civilization where it has
been tried. If the ordinance should be
come a law I presume all the saloons in
the city would open their places as drag
stores, employ cheap doctors to sit at the
front doors and' write prescriptions for
liquors and beer, which would settle the
On the other hand suppose the license
law, as now presented, is passed ; that all
the liquor dealers go on with their business
and decline to take out licenses ; that in
trying to enforce the law I have four hun
dred of them arrested every month, and
that they all demand jury trial. If both
of the municipal judges were to sit twelve
hours each day and dispose of four cases,
to the exclusion of all others, not more than
one quarter of the cases could be tried. By
such a combination if the extreme penalty
of $100 was imposed it would let the sa
loon men off for about one-quarter of the
tax you seek to lev* •
Was this $1,500 license intended for rev
enue or prohibitory purposes ? .. If for the
former—on the usual ground that that
which creates the •necessity for policemen
must be taxed for their supportthen a
$100 license is sufficient. During the last
year the expenses of the police force and
municipal court were $56,037.41 ; while
the receipts from licences and fines im
posed and collected in said court were
$63,532.28. According to this those who
paid the licenses and fines not only paid
our police and court expenses, but'eontrib
uted $7,49.1.87 (.besides. And still there
may be found croakers who will persist in
declaring that they are being taxed enorm
ously for the support of the police de
partment. When you go above the figure
necessary to take care of the evils said to
follow the rum traffic (which was suckled
and cared for by Republican parents) you
impose upon personal liberty and make
taxation oppressive and unjust. If this
course is followed much longer another
Boston tea-party may be the result. Let
us have a revenue from just and equal
taxation and not levery a robbery upon a
class whose business is considered legiti
mate by the national government. Very
respectfully your obedient servant, "
A. A. Ames, Mayor.
The roll being taken up on the veto,
when Aid. Glenn's name was called he rose
to a point of order, maintaining that ac
cording to the charter the subject could
not be taken up . until the next meeting
thereafter. The chair ruled the point not
well taken, and the completion of the roll

rected to go to the woods and attend a
camp meeting, and there pray for the poor
sinners who had voted.

other figure could be arrived at by the
council, and the city was badly in need of
the money coming from these licenses
and that was the object of. the motion.
Aid. Walsh followed in an argumenta
tive logical speech sustaining the motion,
He frankly conceded that the evil of
liquor selling existed but
he did not believe a high license would be
a remedy. It is a well known fact that all
morals are not centered in the rich. Many
of the most objectionable places in the
city are owned by rich men. They can
take out a high license and make money
oat of it. He advocated regulating the
traffic. That was the particular point to
which the speaker pointed. The address
was one of the best ever delivered in our
council chamber, and had the Globe
the space would be published entire.

Aid. Pillsbury claimed that tho Minneap
olis papers had told naughty stories about
himself. The Globe has explained this
before. He favored a $500 license as a
source of revenue. The city needs the
funds. It is not a high license. That is
the reason he favored it, placing himself
on the records. Nevertheless he would like
to see a high license. He believed many
saloon keepers stood with him on that
plank in the hope that a high license
would choke out most of the saloon keep
ers. ."-«.,.'v." .-:<■'-.
Aid. Johnson would not beat around the
bush, but came , out flat-footed stating
that not a member of the council wanted
a high license for revenue. It was to wipe
out saloons, not on tho ground of revenue.
The council has no more right to license
one business than another. He would not
vote for a license lower than $500.
Aid. Glenn was the next speaker and he
spoke at length, he promised that until the
matter had been fairly tested at the polls
the Democrats of the council would
throw every obstacle in the way of the
Republicans who were on election day on
one side of the street in favor of high
license and on the other side for low
license, but who now were in favor of high
license. The motion was lost.

referred back to the committee on ordi

further safeguards. Lost.

merit, and does not contain either alum or phosphates, or other injurious substances. -

"I have analyzed a package of Royal Baking Powder. The materials of which it is composed are

"June 23, 1882.— have made a ?areful analytical test of Royal Baking Powder, purchased by
ourselves in the open market here, and in the original package. We find it to be a cream of tartar
powder of the highest degree of strength, containing nothing but pure, wholesome and useful in
gredients. :-;-'• •;*.■-; "Juan H. Wright, M. D.

The Royal Baking Powder received the highest award over all competitors at the Vienna World's
Exposition, 1873; at the Centennial, Philadelphia, 1876; at the American Institute, and at State
Fairs throughout the country.;' .-.'.- '..'■._
No other article of human food has ever received such high, emphatic, and universal indorse
ment from eminent chemists, physicians, scientists, and Boards of Health all over the world.
Note.—The above diagram iUustrates the comparative worth of various Baking Powdtrs, as
shown by Chemical Analysis and experiments made Dy Prof. Schedler. A one pound can of each
powder was taken, the total leavening power or volume in each can calculated, the result being as
indicated in the above diagram. This practical test for worth by Prof. Schedler only proves what
every observant consumer of the Royal Baking Powder knows by experience, that while it costs a
few cents per pound more than the ordinary kinds, it is far more economical, and, besides, afford
the advantage of better work.
A single trial of the Royal Baking Powder will convince any fair minded person of these facts •
♦While the diagram shows some of the alum powders to be of a higher degree of strength than
other powders ranked below them,,it is not to be taken as indicating that they have any value. All
alum powders, no matter hoy high their strength, are to be avoided as dangerous.
