TJie Opera Souse Block.
When Commodore Davidson completes the im
provements he has commenced on and around the
Opera house he will have finished a work that will
last for many years, and which will attest his
good judgment. When the veteran steamboat
man, whose principal business from youth up
to ripe manhood has been to "plow the wave,"
began the great improvement that is now about
completed, there was little pecuniary promise in
it. The prospect was not favorable for business
of very • great proportions in the
locality of the Opera house, and it
looked as though the man that invested money
in building there would; wait some time before
he would take it out with much added to it.
The commodore, however, had determined that
the property should be improved. 1' He accord
ingly had constructed a large, graceful and com
modious Opera house, in the rear of the old one,
while on Fourth street he constructed a block
of two stores six stories in height, wnich forms
a connected part of the general improvement,
and through which, by ample hallway a side en
trance is obtained to the Opera house. In the
mean time the interior of the old Opera house,
facing on Wabashaw street is
being tourn out, prepratory to be
ing wholly rejuvenated. Adjoining the
old Opera house on the south was a stone build
in? with a front of twenty-five or thirty feet on
Wabashaw street, the upper stories of which
have always been used in connection with : the
Opera house. This has been torn down and the
walls are going up anew with an increased thick
ness to correspond with the proposed new front
that is to be built to constitute the new front of
the Opera house, making v continuous new front
of about one hundred feet. This front will be
highly ornamented, six stories in height to cor
respond with the new Opeja house and the block
connected therewith on Fourth street. Alto
gether this will constitute a very valuable im
provement and will make.a very imposing block.
This immense structure does not appear to
show up much for the reason that it takes a long
time to get the foundations in and everything
prepared for such a large building. A large
number of the huge s.,one piers for the hotel are
completed, while the big stones for others are
being put in place. At the same time a small
army of men are at work laying the foundation
brick walls which are four feet thick. All along
around the prospective building are to be seen
immense iron girders, posts and frames of vari
ous descriptions that are to form a part of this
immense structure. The work is almost as far
advanced as it ought to be at this period but not
quite up to contract in this respect. It is as
near as can be expected or required, however.
( THE THIRD STREET PAVEMENT. ,'.
Now that the old pine block pavement that
for eleven years performed service on this
thoroughfare has ceased to exist, and its
poor disjointed and disintegrated remains
are being picked up and pitched around
like the discarded bones of a worn out ceme
tery, men are now heard to say a good word
for it. For eleven years that poor little pine
block pavement has been more abused and
cursed than any other one thing in St. Paul,
not excepting the board of public works. It
has been cursed because it was such a poor
pavement, and cursed for costing 60
much and wearing out so quick,
and cursed for not wearing out quicker so that
people could have a better chance to curse it.
Now everybody agrees that it was a pretty good
pavement and, under all circumstances did good
service. It was a pavement that was easy to lay
and easy to repair. This made it a very conven
ient pavement, for eleven years ago the water,
gas and sewer pipes were not laid. The conse
quence is, that during the last eleven years the
business of that thoroughfare has so far increas
ed that nearly all of those doing business on
Third street have made their gas and water con
nections. The poor little pine block pavement
that tried so faithfully and so conscienti
ously ~to do its duty was the suf
ferer. All along the line from Seven
Corners to Sibley street property owners and
others were ' daily ripping and tearing up this
little long suffering, patient pine block pave
ment, and then relaying it in a very indifferent,
loose, unsatisfactory way. The consequence
naturally was that the street was rendered un
even, and full of hollow places that rendered
travel on it rather rough and unpleasant. Of
course, all this was charged directly to the poor
little pavement, which it endured with a saint
like patience and resignation, and'with due
humility continued to bear whatever injustice was
heaped upon it. Now that the little pavement is
about to pa?s away, and will hereafter dwell
alone in the memory of man, some of those
who spoke slightingly of it appears to be touched
a little with sympathy for the departing pavement
and can be heard saying kindly things about it,
and they really wish it had not been ordered to be
taken up. They think it would have done for
two or three years more. This opinion is very
general especially among among those who have
got to pay for the new pavement. By the time
this is read by the subscribers of the Globe the
little block pavement will have been all removed
below Wabashaw ,treet and its place will have
been wholly replaced with a cedar block pave
ment that it is believed will be superior both as
to durability and smoothness of surface.
Repairing of Burned Buildings.
In the article on real estate last week we re
ferred to that part of the building ordinance re
lating to the different kinds of buildings to be
erected and what was necessary to be done and
how to proceed. Attention is now called to that
part of the ordinance that refers to frame build
ings that have been partially burned, and which
the owner desires to restore, and also to restor
ing frame buildings generally. This matter
causes the authorities a great deal of trouble
and annoyance. Of course, in a city growing
with such great rapidity as St- Paul is, the fire
limits must necessarily be continually extended
farther and farther out. The result is that a
large number of frame buildings are naturally
enclosed within specified limits, within which
frame-buildings cannot be erected. When, there
fore, one of the frames within the limits is in
jured by fire, there is a great temptation to res
tore it. It's a cheap building, and being within
the fire limits rents well. Now the ordinance de
clares just what shall be done under such cir
cumstances and just how the structure may be
reconstructed, if at all. It says.
"Whenever any frame building within the fire
limits shall have become damaged by fire or de
cay, the extent of which, in the judgment of the
inspector of buildings, exceeds 50 per cent, of
the value of such building, if the owner of such
building objects to the conclusion arrived at by
said inspector he or they may file with the in
spector a petition asking for the appointment of
arbitrators to determine the question of damages,
or if the inspector of buildings should conclude
that the damage is less than 50 per cent., then
and in that case the owners of adjacent property
to such damaged building may claim an arbitra
tion to ascertain the damage, to such building.
In either case the party asking for arbitration
shall pay $25 to the inspector on filing his peti
tion, which shall be in full of costs of such arbi
This is the only .way in which after a fire has
occurred the citizen can proceed. When it is de
termined that the building is damaged to the
amount of 50 percent.,' there -is an end to the
matter, and the structure cannot be repaired.
The matter of repairing frame buildings that have
not been burned," and which can be made to rent
well, comes under the same general head. Both
kinds of buildings are sought jto be ; repaired
through the same process. Instecd of doing as
the building inspector directs a person who de- I
sires to make changes in a frame building goes I
to the member of the council from his precinct
and gets him to consent to what the building in
spector has forbidden, and goes into the council
with an ordinance ; all,. prepared. A plausible
story is told. There is a necessity of hastening
the matter through. The rules ■■ are suspended,
the ordinance - passed, and :: the '.spirit, and
substance of the building ordinance .is again
THE ST. PAUL SUNDAY GLOBE, SUNDAY MOENING, MAY2SJBB4]
violated. At the last meeting of the common
council Aid. Johnson called the attention of ,' the
members to the fact that a very great injury /is
being done to the city by this mistaken leniency.
The plain object and intention of the ordinance
is to not allow the construction of frame build
ings in the fire limits and to prevent the repair of
old ones, with a view to make everything within
the limits fire proof, or as near . so. as possible..
Aid. Johnson who is also building inspector told
the members of the council that all these build
ings that they permitted to be repaired were
nothing more nor less than fire traps, and that by
allowing them to be repaired the council perpe
trated their existence for ten or twelve years,
and prevented for that period of time, good,
substantial buildings frem being erected in their
places. In illustrating his remarks he ■ related
the case of an old dilapidated building
on Seventh between Jackson j and Wabastiaw
streets, which must necessarily :be abandoned
within a year. The owner had made application
to veneer it ' and . the building inspector
hsd refused to allow him to do so. If the Coun
cil should give him the permission, it would pre
vent the construction of a good substantial fire
proof building. A good many cases of this kind
could be mentioned. ; The alderman did not de
sire to mention any names, nor did he desire to
put himself into the position where ,he would
appear to have any personal feelings in the mat
ter for he had none, but there were the plain de
clarations of the law, and he felt it to be his du
ty to call the attention of the Council to them.
He also referred to two frame buildings recently
partially half burned on Jackson street, which
the owner desired to repair. They are near
Seventh street and could be repaired for a few
hundred dollars and would rent for $100 per
month, each. The owner had been to him for a
permit to make the repairs and he had refused to
allow him to do so, and now he had come into
the Council. The reason for not allowing the
gentleman to repair his buildings was that to do
so would be to expose a large amount of valuable
property to destruction by fire. This he did not
feel justified in doing. He was anxious
to carry out the provisions of the ordinance
fairly, and conscientiously, and with as little
hardship as it was possible. The couucil and all
citizens had said the ordinance was a good one
and ought to be enforced, yet the strange anomi
ly was presented of a kind of general disposition
not to enforce it through indirect means. . In his
opinion no application to repair a building should
be entertained by the council until it had been
sent to a committee, and the committee had
made a personal examination of the premises
and a written report upon whether or not it was
advisable to permit the building to be repaired.
In the opinions expressed by Aid.'Johnson,
all citizens will agree. They are in accordance
with the . intentton of those who adopted
the ordinance, in full agreement
with the plain provisions of the ordinance, and
consistent with the wishes of citizens generally.
The public good requires that the repair of old
frame buildings within the fire limits should cease.
This is undoubtedly the sentiment of the com
munity. While, however, everybody says the or
dinance is a good one and ought to be enforced,
it is unquestionably the fact that each individual
wants an exception in his case. If he has a
frame building within the fire limits that he can
repair at a small sum and get a good rent for it
he wants to do it. Collectively all want the or
dinances enforced but not individually, and there
is just where the trouble is.
The chamber of commerce building foundation
is being put in quite rapidly.
Charles Schliek has sold to E. H. Schliek, for
$10,000, a two-third interest in lots 1 and -2, on
the southwest corner of . Fourth and Wabashaw
street. ■ ■
The Burlington, Cedar Rapids & Northern
road is making rapid progress In the vicinity of
Decorah, lowa, and is getting along to St Paul as
rapidly as possible.
Large gangs of men are at work on the Wis
consin Central road all the way out into Wiscon
sin from the eastern outskirts of St. Paul, and
this road is progressing as fast as possible.
The matter of putting down stone sidewalks on
Third street has been settled and the work will
commence immediately. When the stone walks
and the pavement are both completed it will be a
fine thoronghfare. !
The Reeves and Drake blocks on Third street
below the Merchants, are going along probably
about as fast as it is possible to have them, but
it looks now as though it would take pretty much
all summer to complete them.
There is considerable opposition to the paving
of St. Peter street. The opposition does not
seem to be so much against paving the street at
all as it does to paving it this season. Some of
those who are making opposition do not hesitate
to say that they are in favor of paving,but do not
wish to have the improvement made this year,
as taxes ana assessments are so very heavy at
present that they desire to have it postponed for
one season. Iv other words they wonld like a
little breathing spell betweeen the taxes and as

The committee, on the part of the city coun
cil, to purchase a span of horses, so as to give the
patrol wagon two teams, one for night, and the

The First National Bank.
An event of unusual interest in the financial
circles of St. Paul occurred yesterday. In 1802,
more than twenty years ago, J. E. and Horace
Thompson erected the three-story stone block
on Third street, between Minnesota and Robert
streets, and in the fall of that year removed their
private banking office into the building. This
was the first cut stone front building in the city,
and with the exception of an addition built to it
in the rear to accommodate increased business,
the banking room has been the same for over
twenty-one years. In February, 1803, the First
National bank was organized as the successor of
Thompson Bros., and there the bank has re
mained until yesterday.
At 5 o'clock yesterday morning the work of
removal began, the bank taking possession of the
beautiful block on the corner of Fourth and
Jackson streets. The funds were removed in
safety in express safes, and to-morrow morning
the business of the bank will begin in the new
quarters. The removal would have taken place
some time ago but for the destruction of the
bank's new furniture at the time of the prison
fire last winter.
The sum of $42,000 was disbursed by the
city receiver yesterday, in payment for wo rk
done under city contracts.
Yesterday afternoon Detective O'Connor
arrested a young man named Chas. Fan
strom on the charge of obtaining two boxes
of cigars from Grunhagen & Freye, on a
Yesterday afternoon Peter Therien, a stone
mason, whiie engaged at work at the foot of
Walnut street, hung his vest on an adjacent
post and when he went to look for it he
found that it had been rifled of a gold watch
and chain valued at $75. The robbery was
reported at the city hall.
Yesterday fifty-four soldiers left on the
Northern Pacific, twenty-one for Missoula
and thirty-lhree for Helena, from Fort Snel
ling, in charge of Frank T. Avery, second
lieutenant of the 3d infantry.
THE LOST SENORINE,
Disgraceful Conduct of the Officers
And Crew by Leaving: the Pas
St. Johns, N. P., May 24.—The French brig
Senorine, which went ashore at Grand Bands on
Friday was a total wreck in fifteen minutes, and
fifty-three of the passengers and nine of the
crew were lost. The Senorine was caught in a
fog, and the captain lost his bearings, he mak
ing for this port. She was going slow when she
struck. The wildest disorder prevailed, the
officers and crew making for the boats, leaving
the passengers to care for themselves. One
boat containing twenty passengers and some of
the crew was swamped after she got away from
the brig by the lurching of the vessel. The
screams of the women were heartrending,
and most of them sauk immediately. The men
struggled, but only a few succeeded by catching
floating spars. The captain was unable to main
tain discipline, and among the passengers few
were able to save themselves. Many clung to
the rigging after the first shock, thinking the
vessel might stand ths strain, and .they might be
picked up when the fog cleared, but when the
vessel went to pieces they were all lost. Only
about twenty were saved,
Grand Forks on the Capital Decision.
[Special Telegram to the Globe.l
Gra^td Forks, Dak., May 24.—The news of
the capital decision is received with great joy by
the friends of Commissioner Scott. The Plain
dealer issued an extra. Later news of the appeal
moderates views. The ablest attorneys here say
Edgerton will be snstained finally on the ground
that the congressional grantof legislative power is
limited, and the reverse of state legislative power.
The territory has no power but that derived from
the act of congress. The appointing power of
the legislature is not applicable as to locating a
a capital, which is a strictly legislative power and
cannot be delegated under the organized act.
The disposition of the opponents of the commis
sion is to acquiesce in Bismarck as the capital,
but to fight the men by whose questionable meth
ods it was located
Warrants have been issued for the arrest of
ex-Bank Presidents Eno and Fish.
None of the suspended Wall street firms have

The West Side bank, of New Yojk, suspended
at 1:30 Saturday on account of a 890,000 defal

it had 51,700,000 in business paper and $200,000
in money to meet them, about §000,000 of the

A Lawyer's Opinion of Interest to All.
J. A. Tawney, Esq., a leading attorney of
Winona, Minn., writes : "After using it for more
than three years, I take great pleasure in stating
that I regard Dr. King's New Discovery for Con
sumption, as the best remedy in the world for
Coughs and Colds. It has never failed to cure
the most severe colds I have had, and invariably
relieves the pain in the chest.
