HOTEL. AND STREET CHATTER.
The 'Donnelly scheme of dividing the
Fanners' alliance vote in the interests
of GOT. Merriam continues to be the all
absorbing topic of conversation amonii
the state politicians whenever they
cbance to run up against each other in
this city. Without exception the real
farmers declare themselves emphatic
ally opposed to helping Mr. Donnelly
carry out any contract he may have
made with the present governor of the
state, and they propose to do all in their
power by way of mutual concessions to
prevent "any serious difference arising
that wouldiead to any honest and sin
cere worker's being induced to follow
Mr. Donnelly's lead. "1 was surprised
at the interview given out by Dr. Fish
and published |n an evening paper yes
terday." remarked a leader of the alli
ance movement in Blue Earth county
last evening, "for, despite all reports, I
did not think that Mr. Donnelly
would Ptoop to such contemptible
methods in his efforts to help along
GOT. Merrianfs cause. There is no
such a thing as a Hall and Lathrop
clique or ring in the alliance, and I am
firmly convinced that both of these gen
tlemen fire working honestly and un
selfishly for the good of the organiza
tion, they certainly did accomplish
somethins: 'substantial for the farmers of
the state when they ran down that
twine investigation farce, and forced
a reinvestigation which has resulted in
an oreer from the governor to at once
commence the erection of such a plant.

obliged to have some good and more

the Third district, and was largely in

would be a little rough on
him to suppose for a moment
that he was at all proud of his job, ex

opinion of the probable result this year,
he said there was no doubt of Mr.liall's
renomination and he felt quite sure that
he would be re-elected by a good ma
A number of the leading Democrats
of the state chanced to meet at the Mer
chants' yesterday afternoon, and, after
talking politics for r time decided to
drop across the street and pay their re
spects to that staunch old leader, Hon.
Michael Doran. This they did,
spending a half hour or
so in discussing the political
outiook. It was no slate-making meet
ing, however, and hardly more than
/me or two members of the state com
mittee were in the crowd. Among those
present were Senator E. W. Durant, of
Stilt water; Hon. J. W. Lawrence, of
Minneapolis; lion. R. L. Frazee, of
Frazee City; lion. David T. Calhoun,
of St. Cloud, and a number of others
from different portions of the state.

The Northwest Magazine Issues
Another Beautiful Number.
Pictures can hardly do iustice to St.
Paul's natural beauties at this season,
but the July number of the Northwest
Magazine serves a noble purpose in
giving to the world an idea of what the
city looks like, the extent of suburban
improvements and the magnitude of the
principal business blocks. These are
all things of which the good citizen is
proud, and he is not slow to encourage
and appreciate a work of the printer's
art that places them In an attractive
form before many thousand readers in

prepared especially for this number
are worthy of extended notice. One in
particular, a magnificent double-page
view of the business district, taken
from on elevated point north of the
capitol, is without exception the most
comprehensive picture of this city ever
produced. The number contains sixty

IT SMELLS TO HEAVEN
Citizens of the Fifth Ward
Last Evening Stormed th 3
ty Fathers Beseeched to
Close Down the Obnoxious
Rendering 1 House.
The Owners Express Willing
ness to Pack Up and Get
Out in Sixty Days.
Matters of Considerable Im
portance Passed Upon by
In the absence of President O. O. Cul
len at Washington, Vice President
Minea presided over the meeting of the
board of aldermen last evening.
The board of water commissioners re
ported that W. A. Somers had been ap
pointed engineer for the board at §3,000
a year, horse and buggy and keep there
of to be included with salary, and ask^d
confirmation. Aid. Flaudrau inquired
if this was a new appointmeut,
or an old office heretofore filled.
Aid. Gehan said the city engineer had
formerly filled the position, but could
do the work no longer. Aid. Flan
drau stud he could not see the necessity
of increasing the expenses of the board
$3,000 a year. Commissioner Liudeke,
of the water board, said the council
could approve or disapprove, but the
board would not have elected such an
officer if he had not been needed. So,
on a vote, the council ratified the ap
pointment wtthout a dissenting vote.
A petition from a number of hotel
men asked that hotel ruuuers be abol
ished. The petition, together with an
ordinance of the same tenor previously
introduced, was referred to the city at
torney and Aid. Flandrau.
James J. McCafferty put in a bill for
8500 for services in defending Police
Officer Peterson, charged with murder
in the second degree by Daniel Cash
man, father of Neil Cashman, the man
who was shot in, self-defense by the
officer. The lawyer claimed he had put
in sixteen days' services on the case.
Prominent property owners sent in
two petitions protesting against Jim
Hill's effort to fence off a part of Wal
nut street for private use, which was
referred to the committee on streets.
The bill of the Azotine company for
81,250, garbage removed during June,
stirred up an odor less offensive than
the company's works on the flats, but
expressive enough. Aid. Dorniden said
the works were a nuisance, and did not
want the bill allowed. Aid. Banholzer
thought the works should be shut
down, as it was understood when they
were located on the flats that there
would be no odor, instead of which the
stench during the last week had been
all but unbearable. Aid. Flandrau
said that he had been informed
during the afrernoon that the Mc-
Millan rendering establishment, which
contributes largely to the nuisance
complained of, would remove if given
sixty days' time. The McMillans ac
knowledged that the location was not a
tit place for such an establishment.
The Azotiue bill was allowed. A com
munication from Health Inspector Hoyt
.said the odors were prejudicial to
health: that the companies had been
notified to abate the same; asked the
council to act at once; and said that
unless the body took immediate action
public health was endangered. The
matter was referred to the committee
on streets. Aid. Banholzer asked that
the citizens of the section be heard. Wai
ter Ife, O. E. Dodge and a number of
others pictured the frightful odors aris
ing from the rendering establishment
and Azotine plant, and related the .sick
ness that prevailed, which physicians
attributed to the smells from the plants.
Aid. Sullivan asked if the council could
take action at this time to stop the
work. City Attorney Hoi in an stated
that the McMillan rendering establish
ment was placed there under ordinance
passed years ago, and it could be done
away with in the same manner. As to
the Azotine company, its contract was
to dispose of offal without odor, ana if
it did not fulfill it payment of the $1*250
per month could be refused. The com
mittee on streets and health officer will
at once investigate and report to a
special council meeting.
The bond of Market Master Platte in
the sum of 55.000, with B. Vogel and J.
N. Jagger as sureties, was approved.
The board of public works reported
against the following improvements:
Grading of East Seventh, Pittstourg.lvy,
Belmont, White Bear, Avon, Richmond,
Ray, Chatsworth, McMenemy, Victoria
and Pascal streets,paving of Rice street
and a sewer on Belvidere street.
The old Hendrickson claim, rejected
by the old council and its committee on
claims, bobbed up again in the new
council. Aid. Sullivan, a member of
the old council, voted against its allow
ance. The amount is ?4 ( JO.
Although approved by the chief of
police, the claim of George C. North for
$27 as stenographer in the Neil Cash
man case, shot by Officer Peterson, was
not allowed. The milk ordinance, here
tofore reviewed, came up for action.
Aid. Sullivan said if it was for the pur
pose of giving place to a few persons, it
might be a very good thing, bat he did
not see how it was going to do more
than the state dairy inspector was now
doing.. After much desultory discus

A resolution appointing Henry Gal
yin as sergeant-at-arms of the council
at a salary of S3OO per year went to the
ways and means committee. He has
been acting without compensa f ion, being
a police officer detailed for the purpose.
Without discussion the ordinance giv
ing the Wisconsin Central the right to
the alley between Fifth and Sixth
streets from Brook to Broadway was re
ferred to the committee on streets. The
ordinance confirms the Villand scheme
printed in yesterday morning's Globe.
An ordinance providing for the in
spection of meat, emanating from the
same source as the milk ordinance, and
which has received attention in the
Globe columns, was referred to the
committee on ordinances.
Aid. Gehan introduced an ordinance
providing for the appointment of an
additional jailor and an additional
patrol wagon driver for Margaret,
Dncas and Rondo sub-police stations.
Under a suspension of the rules the
ordinance passed. Heretofore the jail
ors and drivers were supposed to be on
duty for twenty-lour hours, and could
only be relieved for meals by the calling
in of a patrolman.
Aid. Gehan also introduced a resolu
tion authorizing the mayor to appoint
fifty additional patrolmen to the police
department. It was referred to the
committee on police.
Aid. Bielenberg introduced a resolu
tiou providing that the city should rent
the Kamaley triangle at a rental not to

exceed §50 per month and sub-let to
market gardeners, the fees to be col
lected by the market master. In view
of the fact that the property has al
ready been rented to Noah Sinks, who
is sub-letting to the gardeners, It is not
clear how the city is going to snatch
the right from his hands.
A broad smile went abont the specta
tors' gallery when Aid. Flandrau ob
jected to Aid. Dobner's resolution to
change the name of Pillsbury street in
the Tenth ward on the ground that it
might be taken as a reflection on the
ex-governor by Minneapolis, since St.
Paul was now engaged in a controversy
with Minneapolis over the census. Aid.
Sullivan also though the name should
not be changed just at the present time.
Aid. Dobner explained that the reason
for changing the name of the street was
because there was already a Pillsbury
avenue in the district, and it led to
confusion. He only introduced the
resolution to simplify matters, but
would withdraw it with the council's
consent. The council consented.
June Weather the Warmest for

WHT THIS CROWING?
St. Paul Will Shortly Be a Finan-
cial Reserve Station.
The Minneapolis Tribune professes
to be very much elated over the fact
that the comptroller of the currency has
designated Minneapolis as a reserve
station for the deposit of surplus funds
by the other banks in tbis district. St.
Paul could have had that distinction a
year and a half ago, had our bankers
consented. As a matter of fact, there
isn't a cent in it for the depositories,
and there is what the St. Paul bankers
consider an undesirable condition pre
scribed—namely, that the banks of a
reserve station must keep at least 25 per
cent of the funds in reserve. Ordinarily
a reserve fund of only 15 per
cent is all that is required,
and the only benefit that can accrue is
the reputation it brings to a city. Ke
cently the St. Paul bunkers were re
quested to reconsider their former atti
tude and accept the distinction without
emolument, and yesterday the bankers
accordingly held a short session at which
it was unanimously airreed to accept the
trust under the national banking laws.
Consequently St. Paul will soon be con
stituted a full-fledged reserve statiou.

A CLEAR KNOCK-OUT.
Photographers Not Allowed
to Dispose of Photographs
of Their Patrons.
For Doing* So a Minneapolis
Artist Is Warmly Round
A Ticklish Point of Law
Straightened Out by the
Variety of Other Decisions
Which Will Keep the Law
yers Guessing 1 .
Photographers cannot give away or
sell photographs of their patrons with
out the permission of the latter, says
the supreme court of Minnesota in the
celebrated case of Mrs. Ida E. Moore
against Photographer A. B. Rugg. of
Minneapolis. This case is one of es
pecial importance, as it fixes the law of
tUe state, if not of the entire nation, on
that point, it being the first case of the
kind ever tried iv this country. Mrs.
Moore, who is a very handsome woman,
it is said, had Mr. Rugg make some
photographs for her in ISS7. A year
ago one Clark, a detective in the em
ploy of a local detective asreucy in Min
neapolis, was hired to watch Mrs.
Moore for the purpose of securing evi
dence in a case afterwards tried in the
Mill City. This detective went to Mr.
Rugg and secured a photograph of
Mrs. Moore, which the complainant
alleges that he was accustomed to ex
hibit in various shady places through
out the city. This was brought to the
attention of Mrs. Moore and suit was
forthwith commenced against Mr. ftugg
by her attorneys. The defendant de
murred to the complaint, alleging that it
did not state a cause of action. This
was overruled by Judge Rea, and from
this an appeal was taken by Rugg.
In the brief of the defendant's attor
ney there are many amusing and highly
interesting passages, In one of which it
is alleged that the plaintiff could not
suffer damages because of her photo
graph being exhibited in evil resorts,
because of the elevating effect it would
have on those who saw it in such places.
The fact that pictures of Mrs. Grant,
Mrs. Cleveland and other noted women
could be found in such places was cited
as showing that it wa3 nothing to the
discredit of the women in question.
The whole point iv the decision, how
ever, is embodied in one sentence of the
syllabus, which says:
There is au implied contract between the
photographer aud his customer thai the
negative shall only be usetf for ttie printing
of sneh portraits as the customer may order
'"There is both common law and com
mon sease in this decision," remarked
a weH-known gentleman yesterday, "for
it will protect ladies from one of the
smallest and meanest tricks of some
photographers." The syllabus follows:
Ida E. Moore, respondent!;, vs. A. B. Raggr,
appellant. Order affirmed, Collins, J.
There is an implied contract between
a photographer and his customer that
the negative for which the customer
sits shall only be used for the printing
of such photographic portraits as th§
customer may order or authorize. The

with respect to the alleged uegligence
of a- locomotive, engineer, in operating

The Faribault Water Works Company, ap

A notice by a local board of tax-equali
zation of intention to increase the vaMra
tion of personal property on the assess
ment roll held sufficient, the party
notified appearing in response thereto.
The action of such a board of equaliza
tion after the time prescribed in the
statute therefore sustained. Increasing
the valuation of property, under the
classification or item in the assessor's
list, is verified by the owner, sustained
as against the objection that the classi

On the trial of this action before a

could not recover received, defendant

ONE BROAD PLATFORM.
Leading Citizens Discuss the Ail-
Absorbing Common School Ques
Thomas Cochran will be pleased to see you
at his house, »9 Western avenue, npon Tues
day evening next at 8 o'clock, to meet Arch
bishop Ireland in order that you may inter
change with him and a few other of your fel
low citizens opinions udou the pub
lic school question. American Protestants
and Catholics alike are now regarding
this question with deep interest and discuss
ing it with more or less wisdom upon the
platform and in the press. It would seem
therefore that a frank though informal inter
change of views upon it cannot but be bene
ficial perhaps in removing differences of
opinion and at least in a better understand
ing of what both parties to the discussion
In response to the above invitation a
large number of prominent citizens of
St. Paul fast evening assembled at the
residence of Mr. Cochran. Among
Archbishop Irelaud, Bishop Gilbert. Rev.
Dr. McLaren, Key. J. E. Smith, Dr. Heath,
Supt;. Kiehie, Gen. J. \V. Bishop. H. J. Horn,
D. R. >'oyes, C'apt. G. H. Moffett, Col. J. H.
Davidson, Judge Mac Donald, W. B. Dean. J.
Ross Nichols, Supt. Gilbert, D. S. B. John
stou, col. Bend, Judge Kelly, Prof. Carmen,
John W. Willis, I. V. D. Heard and li. L.
The informal talk was opened by
Archbishop Ireland, who, in the course
of his remarks,deelared himself a friend
of the public school system. He even
went so far as to say he was In favor of
compulsory enucation, on the principle
that it was the duty of the state to liave
intelligence generally diffused. He
was» however, opposed to the inter
ference of the state in the private
schools. The archbishop alluded to the
Bennett law in Wisconsin. He had read
that law carefully, and did not find it so
very objectionable as some persons im
agined it to be. If a few clauses were
eliminated he could see no objection to
the enforcement of the law. He recog
nized a difficulty in Catholics and Prot
estants agreeing upon any particular
form of religious education in the
schools; therefore they had to refer to
some other plan of adjustment. He
had been impressed with what was
known as the Poughkeepsie (S. V.) sys
tem. Tne Catholics of that town had
leased their school houses to the board
of education at a nominal rent of $1
per year. The board had exclusive
control of the schools, which were iv
session from !) to 12 and 1 to 3 o'clock.
It was. however, provided that before 9
o'clock and after 3 o'clock the teachers
were privileged to impart religious in
struction to Catholic children.
Dr. McLaren, of the Central Presby
terian church, the next speaker, in
sisted that the summer schools snould
be maintained upon their present basis
of non-sectarianism. The system was
essentially American; there should be
no deviation. Grant one denomination
something, and the rest would there
after desire the same privilege.
Dr. J. E. Smith, o£ Central Park M.
E. church, supported Mr. McLaren's
view, and contested a point made by
Archbishop Ireland, that the common
school teaching had a tendency to run
towards sectarianism aud agnosticism.
Bishop Gilbert, of the Episcopal
church, took a middle course. He was
favorably impressed by the Poughkeep
sie plan, and was willing to see it
adopted, provided it stopped there. But
he knew the Roman church to be an ag
gressive church, and he did not think it
was any less aggressive in Minnesota
than elsewhere. His own preference
was to see Christian denominations
agree upon a common standard of moral
teaching. This moral code should be a
part of the common school instruction.
Supt. Kiehle, Supt. Gilbert, Prof.
Carmen, Col. Hani Davidson and others
took part in the discussion thus intro
Refreshments were served, and a

Waiters Gain a Point.
The uew scale of the waiters' union
will go into effect to-day, the principal'
hotel and restaurant men ot the "city
having agreed to it. Only a few of the
eneap lunch counters refuse to 'pay. the
advance, and. they are not regarded as
cutting any figure. The waiters feel
very much pleased, at the success » of
their organization.; A mouth ago they
formed a union, and their membership
is 101, out of a total of 126 waiters in
the city. Besides, they have secured an
advance in wages. The colored waiters
have also organized, but the girl waiters
hay not yet swonu into line.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?
Some people think a Shirt Waist of
a certain pattern is lovely, while
others think the same waist is homely.
We've about forty dozen Boys' Star
Waists here that most people evidently
think are homely, as they didn't buy
them. They are actually worth from
75c to $1 each. We've marked them
We think they'll sell fast enough at
50 cents, even if they are homely. But
maybe you'll think they are pretty. So
much the better for you if you do. But
it doesn't make any odds, pretty or
homely, you can have from one to a
dozen of them at 50 cents each, and if
you are wise you'll buy some before
they are gone.
