ward were dicussed, principal among
which was that of offering the Wood-
Harvester company a suitable site for
their buildings in accordance with the
new call for proposals. The right-of
way committee, reported considerable
progress, having made almost- entirely
satisfactory arrangements with prop
erty owners as well as with the rail
road company. The site com
mittee also reported and asked
till Tuesday -to report in
order to hear from some correspondence
which they are awaiting. The sub
scription and other committees reported
very favorably.and it was finally agreed
that a mass meeting of the citizens of

STRUCK. A COMPROMISE
On a Sliding Scale of Licenses for
The committee from the assembly and
board of aldermen on licenses had an
other lively session yesterday and
Dually fixed upon a report to the assem
bly on the peddlers' license fee for the
coming year. There was a delegation
of grocers present and a horde of ped
dlers. The latter were represented
once more by Ben Davis, the lawyer.
As soon as the committee came to order
Mr. Davis was given the floor for argu
ment. lie declared that never in the
annals of the license committee has
such an exorbitant and atrocious tax
been proposed, and he proceeded with
a panegyric upon the honesty and.
integrity of the poor peddlers strug
gling to support their families.
He challenged any grocer to show that
lie paid a tax of even $10 upon the goods
sold by peddlers, yet it is proposed to
put a $ 100 license on the peddlers, and
lie went largely into the ethics of taxa
tion and its environments. A. P. Moss
replied briefly. He showed that the
grocer not only has to pay taxes and
rents and assessments, but he is com
pelled to carry large stocks of iroods in
season and out of season, and he inti
mated that there is no way to test the
weights and measures of the peddlers,
while the grocers' are regularly sealed
by the officials. After a lengthy discus-,
sion the committee went into executive
session and fixed upon the following
schedule: For foot peddlers, 10; for
push carts, booths and stands. $85; and
for teams, $50. This will be reported to
Ihe council Tuesday evening.

Yesterday's developments rather
promise that St. Paul will not realize
not tor a lons time at best— its dream of
a large convention hall to accommodate
national sratliering of any sort. And
Aid. Sullivan recited, upon Leaving the
Ever since childhood's happy hour
I'veseeu my fondest hopes decay.
He has been an enthusiastic supporter
of the project of erecting a mammoth
auditorium since the very incipiency of
the enterprise. He has never absented
himself from a meeting of the joint
council committee on auditorium, save
from la grippe aud unable to leave his
room, and to see his hopes dashed to
earth with one fell stroke rather
shocked him. Assemblyman Elnxiuist's
feelings were no less poignant, lie said
little other than to eive a positive ex
pression of his regret, and William Pitt
Murray's face was wreathed in smiles
that stood in striking contrast when the
committee on auditorium adjourned,
perhaps, for the last time.
"1 had never despaired of securing
the building," Mr. Llmqnist said, "and
it comes like a pall to stare the proba
bility squarely in the face. St. Paul
needs an auditorium, and can nevei
hope to succeed as a convention city
until it is built. We may promise to
build a wigwam when we invite any na
tional society or organization to meet
here, but what right have we to expect
any one to place much confidence in our
promises after this fiasco? We have ad
vertised throughout the length and
breadth of the lani that we were actu
ally constructing one of the finest audi
toriums in America, with a seating
capacity of over 10,000, and no one had
a right to doubt our sincerity; but what
wili the retort be now if we extend hos
pitalffies? They will laugh at us, and
we will be helpless to reply."
All this was the effect of the joint
"meeting of the joint committee from the
city council on auditorium. The com
mittee is composed of seven mstubers,
but there were only four present, name
ly, Assemblymen Van Slyke and Elm
quist and Aid. Gehan and Sullivan.
Hitherto Aid. (Jehan has been a staunch
supporter of the project, and at the last
meeting of the committee, with six
members present, it was voted the sense
of the committee that it is for
The Best Interest*)
of the city to proceed with the audi
torium on the market house site. As
semblymen McCafferty offered the reso
lution to this effect, and it was adopted
with R single negative vote— that of Mr.
Van Slyke. Aid. Gehan, however, has
undergone a change of heart, and he
is now opposed to the proj
ect. Assemblyman Van Slyke, it
should be explained, has always been
an advocate of the enterprise, but he
has sturdily opposed the market house
site on the score that the property is too
valuable to be converted into such use
while there is so much available vacant
property near the center of the city that
can be acquired for a small per cent of
the full value of the market property.
He favors selling the latter and con
verting the money into an auditorium
building fund, and, to emphasize his
position, he cites the fact that upwards
of $300,000 can be realized from such
sale, while a proper aud suitable site
can be purchased for $50,000 or less.
But the reason that the balance of the
committee did not concur in this plan is
the ureency of building at once. Mr.
Van Slyke's plan would require a year
or two to culminate, and Assemblyman
McCafferty seemed to voice the opinion
of the majority when he declared in
favor of having a hall ready to enter
tain the Minnesota state conventions
The purpose of the meeting held yes
terday was to listen to a promised propo
sition to be made, under Assemblyman
Murray's patronage, by E. E. Davidson,
to build on the site of the old Grand
opera house on Wabasha street, between
Third and Fourth streets. Both Assem
blyman McCafferty and Aid. Conley
were absent from the city, unfortunately
for the hope of the larger plans. Mr.
Davidson and Mr. Murray, together
with Architect Bassford and others, ap
peared before the committee iv the in
terests of the Davidson scheme. Mr.
Davidson briefly unfolded his plans.
He confessed that he had little confi
dence in the profitable prospects of the
investment, but he desired to make cer
tain improvements in the Wabasha
street front to the site, and he thought it
might be well to build a large hall at
the same time. Mr. Bassford had made
a rough sketch of the proposed struc
ture, aud Mr. Davidson spread this out
before the committee. The utmost
seating capacity will be 3,200, and it is
be a slow-burning structure with six
exits. Mr. Davidson confessed that
No Positive < <■: taint j
of his going ahead with the building.
He must acquire an alley right on the
Third street side iv order to comply
with the provisions of the buiiding or
dinance. Negotiations to effect this
are now pending, but what the result
will be he could not foresee.
Aid. Gehan observed that the city can
give no assurances that no citizen will
build an auditorium in competition, and
MtuMurray quickly replied that Mr.
Davidson did not care for such au assur
ance, and Mr. Murray pointed to the
promise of the plans "to seat as many
people as the theaters can, and by
•crowding the number can be brought
#Kld. Gehan desired lobe very explicit,
SUM wished Mr. Davidson to realize that
the city cannot give assurances of the
course of the couucil after the next elec
tion "for we may not be iv it," he ex
"1 think you are right about that,
John." said Mr. Murray exultantly.
Aid. Sullivan expressed his sore dis
appointment. "1 have no confidence in
this plan," he explained, pointing to the
sketch presented by Mr. Davidson. "I
am conscious that there is a pronounced
public feeling for a larger and better
auditorium. Public sentiment is alive
in St. Paul and it calls for a seating ca
pacity of at least 6,000, and a larger hall
even than that would be belter. This
will not fill the bill at all."
"See here, Sullivan," interrupted Mr.
Murray, "don't you know that Chicago
has the largest auditorium in the coun
try and it will only seat 4,000?"
"Chicago has secured the *l>ernocratic
convention, but the convention won't
accept the auditorium by any means. It
will not accommodate them. Chicago
is going to build a wigwam. Further
more, I want to deny that Chicago has
the largest auditorium in the country."
"What has a larger?"
"Why, great Scott! New York, and
even Minneapolis," exclaim-d the thor
oughly aroused alderman.
Mr. Van Slyke vow gave an exposi
tion of his views. Under the circum
stances, he couuseled
Dropping the Auditorium
project entirely and accepting Mr.
Davidson's proposition, but Mr. David
son felt constrained to admit that he
would make no promises of what he
will door he will not do. This was in
reply to a broad declaration ou the part

of Mr. Murray that Mr. Davidson will
positively build*, tiio auditorium to ac
com mod ate 3,400 people. Mr. Davidson
could not subscribe la the promise, lie
might not build »t all. If he did, he
thought he would have it ready for oc
cupancy In September, and; possibly
earlier. He recited the suatimr capaci
ties of .theaters and music halls in dif
ferent cities to the best of his informa
tion, and thought his would compare
Aid Sullivan could not suppress his
displeasure when he saw that the com
mittee was divided in sentiment. He
pronounced the movement a farce," and,
in reply to Mr. Davidson, advised that
the committee come nearer home and
copy after Minneapolis. If St. Paul
expects to get any mooting that comes
to Minnesota it must have at least as
good facilities as the sister city.
Mr. Bassford proceeded to explain his
plans at length. lie said the ground
floor will seat 1,584, the balcony 870 and
the gallery 812. The arches are to
be of wood, with grouting be
tween. When asked by Aid. Sullivan
if he really thought the building in
spector would issue a permit lor such a
structure, he said he felt sure of It, but
Aid. Sullivan silently shook his head.
Aid. (Jehan moved, for tho sake of
getting the matter before the meeting,
that the committee recommend that the
city proceed at once with the construc
tion of an auditorium on the market
house site, and a trleam of hope shot
across the faces of Mr. Sullivan and Mr.
Elmquist, but it instantly died out when

On the wheat speculation the question
is: .Can a combination [of capitalists
earn: the immense amount of wheat
that is in sieiit, and take care of the
threshed and unthreshed wheat that is
in the country? If they can do so, they
will make money on a bull movement,
but they don't seem to have been able
to keep May wheat up to 95 cents, the
net advance during the past seven days
having been 2,% cents per bushel, the
market closing at 93V£ cents yesterday
for No. 2, May delivery, in Chicago.
Prices of provisions are about in line
with the wheat market.
Trade and collections are both fair.
The wholesalers generally say they are
having a larger business thau they had
a year ago. Manufacturers report a
large increase in the numbers of their
employes. Buyers make little or no
complaint regarding, prices of goods.
The activity in sharesof iron mines in
the northern portion of Minnesota has
been noticed considerably during the
week, and a strong feeling is evident in
all Northwestern mining properties.
The produce men had had a good de
mand last week and report a fair trade,
with good prospects.
Among the opinions expressed were:
George W. Marti G. W. Martin &
Co.. produce commission:
"There is uodoubt but that the Nort
hern Pacific would have made lower rates
last year on fruits from Washington and
Oregon but for the fact that a rather
small volume was offered for shipment.
Those states are new yet in the fruit
growing industry, and their shippers
could scarcely expect the same facilities
that are offered, for instance, by Cali
fornia, which ships sucb an immense
quantity of fruit. The business will be
much larger this coming season, and 1
think the Northern Pacific will not re
gret the proposed reduction of rates.
Our firm received some consignments of
fruit from Washington during the past
year, and we must admit they were
splendid, as fine as we ever had. When
our buyers had tried them they were
willing to, and did, pay twenty-five per
cent more for their later purchases.
Our produce trade has been fair this
week. Good apples have advanced a .
little, while eggs have declined. The i
demand is good all around."
L. A. Guiterman, Guiterman Brothers, i
manufacturers gents' furnisnings:
"We are employing about twice as;
many people as we did this time a year I
ago, and are very busy, working two '
nights each week. The prospects are ;
more than encouraging.". . !
M. W. Fitzgerald, P. R. L. Harden
bergh & Co., leather and findings:
"Our trade is much better than it was
during the corresponding season a year
ago. The stocks of grain and other
produce held in the. Northwest, and the
general prosperity of the farmers make
the situation very substantial,- and the
prospects for the year very good.", v-r-
Frank Keogh, Beaupre, Eeogh ~\ &
Davis, wholesale grocers: -
"Our trade ill February thus far is
better than it was at the corresponding
time a year ago. We call trade and col
lections fair. Personally speaking, 1
haven't much faith in the anti-wheat
option movements when they are manip
ulated by two men whose interests are
so closely allied to each other. The
wheat market has at last shown some
advance after a long period of weak
G. M. Lucas, Potter, Lucas & Co.,
"The produce trade is better than it
was a week ago, generally speaking.
The demand is better. There is an ad
vance on good to choice apples. Eggs
and butter are lower. There are no
•store' eggs now on the market. Fresh
eggs that brought 24 cents per dozen a
week ago can now be had for 17 cents
John S. Robertson, manager B. Pres
ley & Co., wholesale fruits: _
"1 don't know now to account for it,
but .we are so busy that I haven't had
time to take the vacation that is due me.
Our collections are also very fair. Now,
as to the Western fruit trade, 1 sup
pose the Northern Pacific would
have made reduced rates from Washing
ton and Oregon last year but for the
fact that the business was compara
tively small. It is not developed, not
in shape, like the fruit trade of Cali
fornia, Some of the Washington fruits
are very good, but it will take several
years to educate the people out there on
the methods of picking, selecting, grad
ing, packing and shipping their prod
ucts. It will take years of bother to
build up the trade, but it will .be a
handsome thine in time for producers
as well as for the railroads."
