The members of the city counci
laughed heartily last night when' Aid.
Weber said: "I don't know about re
ferring that resolution to the committee
on gas. Aid. Bock is chairman of that
committee, and is employed by the gas
The resolution referred to was one in
troduced by Mr. Weber, calling for a
reduction in the price of gas and asking
the committee on streets to investigate
the advisability of lighting the city by
electricity; also whether competition
was necessary to bring about such a re
duction. The matter went to the com
mittee on streets, only Aid. Gehan
Aid. Cullen roused up the members
by the presentation of a resolution ap
proving the contract of the city with E.
J. Kirkwood and A. 11. Starkey for the
construction of the substructure of the
Broadway bridge. At once two or three
jumped in the effort to get the floor.
Aid. Yoerg wanted to know of the city
attorney if the contractors were not
warned not to go on with the work of
building the substructure.
The city attorney said that was the
situation. He stated further that the
mayor and he had interpolated in the
contract a provision that if an injunc
tion were taken out by the railroad com
panies, who claimed ground there
about, no damage should accrue
beyond the actual expense that the con
tractors had been to. He said that un
der the old Kittson plat the Manitoba
road had claims to land at the foot of
Broadway. If the Oakes plat of 1854 was
correct, the city was the owner of the
property in dispute. Should the su
preme com t reverse the decision of
Judges Brill aud Wilkin, the city would
be the owner.
Aid. Melady said the Broadway bridge
was going to be built as the" people
wanted it, and the railways had no
rights. When the Broadway sewer was
built the companies objected to it.
Aid. Cullen declared that all were in
favor of the bridge.
Aid. Yoerg asked if the city engineer
could not contract for work in the mid
dle of the stream as well as on disputed
ground, and wanted to know if his idea
was not that piers could be placed and
remain standing for three or four years
without the bridge being erected. *
A motion to refer to the street com
mittee was lost, and Aid. Cullen moved
that a special committee, consisting of
Aids. Minea, Yoerg and Conley, be ap
pointed to confer with the railway com
panies. This carried.
The discussion was about to be re
sumed, when President Hamm cut it
short by declaring with a rap of the

A bill for fl'.'J presented by Health
Inspector Hendrickson caused another
exchange of wonts. It was accompanied
by an affidavit of Health Commissioner
lloyt and Inspector Hendrickson, that
the* claim was just. The city attorney
gave it as his opinion that the
bill could be collected by law
if the services had been duly per
formed. Aid. Yoerg got after Mr.
Hendrickson with a ! sharp stick and
questioned him closely as to his method
of collecting fees when drawing a sal
ary under another office. Mr. Hen
drickson replied with some warmth,
saying he had performed the work and
was entitled to "a little rake-off on the
side." This stirred up Aid. Pratt, who
said no . ity official had any right to
"make anything on the side.*' The city
attorney, upon admitted
that in hearing the testimouy tor Mr.
Hendrickson':. affidavit, only one side
of the case had been heard. On a vote
the bill was disallowed. Aid. .Gehan
moved to reconsider and send the mat
ter to the cG-uu,ittee on claims, and this
Aid. Pratt and Sullivan engaged in a
long discussion over the report of the
committee on streets, which recom
mended that the construction of sewers
in the Tenth and Eleventh wards should
not exceed £08.000. Aid. Sullivan
thought the Eleventh ward had not been
fairly treated in the distribution, and
Aid. Pratt thought it had; but the re
port was adopted.
The city engineer reported the tunnel
between Seveu corners and Ramsey
street in a dangerous condition, and the
committee on streets will investigate.
To repair it will cost $2,500. An ad
; verse! report was made upon the report
of the park commission asking for pre
liminary orders in favor of the Missis
sippi river boulevard extension from
Snelling avenue to Toronto street. The
lire commissioners were directed to
purchase a steamer for the chemical en
gine house on Randolph street.
SERGEI! GETS IT.
The committee on gas recommended
that Robert Seeger be.given the three- j
year contract for gasoline street light
ing at $14.40 per lamp per year, which
passed unanimously, and the gasoline
question, up for so long, was finally dis
posed of. Contractor Burner was unan
imously awarded $7,400 as balance due
for improvements at the city and county
hospital. Citizens of Wairendale and
Como asked for fire protection, which
the fire department committee will
decide if the request is to be granted.
A large number of petitions declared
there was deception and swindling un
der the method in vogue at the hay
market. They asked for an ordinance
restricting the dealers. By. resolution,
the contract for a $41,000 iron bridge at
the Mendota road crossing passed. City
Attorney Holman su* m tted a draft for
the construction of a uridge over the
Milwaukee tracks at Grand avenue,
which was approved, the cost being
..40.000. Market Master Sinks turned
iv $500 tor rentof Market hall.
The city engineer complained that no
attention had been paid to his notices to
property owners to remove stairways
anil other street obstructions. The com- <
plaint went to the committee on streets. |
The superintendent of police alarm was !
ordered to place twenty-two new patrol i
boxes in different sections of the city. !
The building inspector, reported that i
$351 had been turned over to the city by !
him, being fees for November. The
city clerk reported that for the year
1889 licenses had netted the city $413,
--423.85. and the market house $8,502.10.
The water board asked that $100,000 of
bonds be issued for the extension of
water mains. After a little ; desultory
discussion tne request went to the com
mittee on streets. The proposition to
open and widen ten feet of Rondo
street from Western to St. Anthony,
and . St. Anthony from that, point to

passed, as were the following: Repair- !

THE EIGHT-HOUR DAY.
The Division of a st. Paul Conven
tion That Will Have an Impor
tant Bearing Upon lt.
The eight-hour question is-" beginuing
to take hold upon all classes of em
ployers, as well as upon the journey
men in many of the leading trades.
The National Association of Brick
layers gave much attention to the sub
ject at the annual convention, held last
week in Kansas City, and the National
Association of Builders is to devote con
siderable time to the important and in
teresting topic in its annual convention,
which meets in St. Paul, commencing
Monday, Jan. 27.
The American Federation of Labor is
pushing the movmeut with the great
est energy, in orderto prepare such of
the building industries as may be pre
pared to demand the. observance of the
eight-hour rule May l. The executive
council, at its "meeting in New
York, mapped out a large amount
of work in the way of agitating the
question and provided for the assign
ment of a number of prominent
speakers, includ tig George E. McNeill,
of Boston, to lecture upon' the question
and arouse the working people to the
necessity of thought preparatory to
action. The council also provided for
the publication and distribution of the
opinions of statesmen, clergymen, edu
cators, business men and ' others in
favor of eight hours, and for other
means of keeping the questiou fresh iv
the minds of the people.
The council did not determine upon
any particular trade as particularly
qualified for instituting the eight-hour
test, but allowed that matter to remain
undecided until after the convention of i
the national, brick la*, ers and master
builders. The bricklayers are alieady
working under a nine-hour system, and
many of the carpenters have secured
nine, and even eight-hours for a day's
labor. The carpenters of Chicago, Den
ver and several other leading Northern
cities have the eight-hour rule now, and
many others, it is understood, are pre
pared to request it.
Deep and extended interest attaches
to the approaching convention of the
national association of builders, which
is to be held in St. Paul, because the
first topic for discussion is: "Shall the
national association recommend the
adopiton of the eight-hour day in the
building trades, and. if so, when and
under what conditions'."* The whole of
the morning session of the 28th instant
has been assigned to the consideration
of the question, and the following morn
ing has beeu reserved to continue it, if
The federation representatives are
hopeful that the national builders' asso
ciation will approve of the eight-hour
day. Ex-President Milton Blair and
National Secretary Sayward are under
stood to have argued quite strongly in
