Acting under the suggestion of the
county attorney, it has about been de
termined to pay the overdrafts of the
board out of money available in the
fund. As to future bills, the county
auditor will certify the monthly bills to
the county treasurer, who may indorse
them as not paid for tho want of funds.
They will then draw interest at the rate
of 7 per cent per annum and will be
come negotiable. They can then be
paid out of the funds available for next
year. It has been suggested that the
county fund for roads and bridges be
diverted toward meeting the deficiency
in the board of control account, but
such a course has not been agreed upon.

An adjourned meeting of the assem
bly was held last night to take action
on the bids submitted for lighting the
gasoline lamps in the city. The city
clerk announced that two bids had been
received, one from Robert Seeger and
the other from Thomas Reilly. Both
bids were lengthy typewritten docu
ments.and submitted a number of prop
ositions as to the city purchasing posts
and burners. Stripped of these, Seeger's
bid was that he would light the present
number of lamps from sunset to dawn
from Aug. 1, 1893, to Jan. 1, 1594, at 81.25
per lamp per month. Reilly's bid was
to do the work for 81.27 per lamp per
month. The bids, after being read,
were referred to the committee
on gas and an adjournment taken
for half an hour to decide which was
the lowest bid. After a session of half
an hour the members reassembled and
the committee reported in favor of
awarding the contract to Robert Seeger
at $1.25 per lamp per month, his bid
having peen decided the lowest. Mr.
Ltghtner, before the contract was ap
proved, introduced a resolution to the
effect that the city did not elect at this
time or for the next five month? to
rent or buy the burners as mentioned in
the specification. The report of the
committee was then adopted, and the
proper city officers directed to execute

do the work for the five months is the

Mr. Reardon introduced a resolution
which stated that the street railway
company under their ordinance were
obliged to operate the interurban and
West Seventh street lines as far east
on Fifth street as Wacouta street. As
tins was not being done, the car com
pany was directed to operate tiie lines
as provided in the ordinance. The reso
lution also directed a copy to be sent
to the company as soon as approved and
Mr. Reardon said his reason for offer
ing the resolution was that the street
car company refused to issue transfers
from the Jackson street line to enter
the intei urban on West Seventh street
lines. They had when he called
at the office informed him that
transfers were only issued to con
necting lines or crossing lines. Neither
of the two lines now crossed or con
nected with the Jackson street line, but
if they were operated as the ordinance
required they would, and then transfers
would have to be issued to Jackson
street passengers. The resolution was
adopted by a unanimous vote. A batch
of audited claims from the comptroller,
including the $5,830.06 pay roll of the
street and sewer force for the first
fifteen days in July, were passed.
The appointment by the mayor of
Charles Beattie as patrolman, vice C. J.

ROW OVER A SALOON.
Aid. Warren's Successful Tactics
—The Aldermen Concur.
The regular meeting of the board of
aldermen was a tame affair, the only
excitement being over the granting of
a license to William Hanim to conduct a
saloon at 1149 Rice street. Some weeks
ago application was made for a license
at the above-mentioned number. A
number of the residents of the vicinity
of the proposed saloon appeared before
a meeting of the joint committees and
protested so hard that the license was
refused. At a subsequent meeting of
the committee the action was recon
sidered and enough votes were ob
tained to grant the license. Ale. Zim
merman asked for a delay of two
weeks, which was assented to. In
the meantime it was learned tho
principal objection to the granting of
the license came from a saloonkeeper
about thirty feet away, who did not de
sire any competition in the business.
Seeing that lie would be powerless to
prevent the granting of the license* in
the committee. Aid. Zimmerman, at the
last meeting of the board of aldermen.
threw the matter into the body. A
number of those opposed to the grant
ing of the license were present and the
aldermen, by a close vote, refused to
grant the license.
At last nights meeting Aid. Zimmer
man and lngersoil were both absent,
and seizing the opportunity Aid.
Warren moved that the vote by which
the council refused to grant a saloon
license at 1149 Rice street at the last
meeting be reconsidered. Aid. Con
ley seconded the motion. Aid. Mont
gomery opposed the reconsider
ation on the ground that a num
ber of the members who were pres
ent and voted then were not now in the
chamuer. He also raised the point of
order that a reconsideration could not
be had except at the same meeting.
Aid. Copeland, who was in the chair,
decided the point well taken. Aid.
Conley appealed from the decision of
the chair. After it had been learned
that the rules said at the same or the
next meeting any matter could be re
considered, the decision of the chair
was not sustained, only Aids. Hick
man* Montgomery and Franklin voting
to sustain the decision. The motion of
Aid. Warren to reconsider was then
put and carried, only Aid. Hickman
and Copeland voting against the recon
sideration. Aid. Franklin then moved
the matter be sent back to the commit
tee on license, but this failed to carry,
only four. Aid. Franklin, Montgomery,
Hickman and Copeland, being in favor
of such procedure. The vote was then
called on the motion to grant a
license at the number mentioned.
Aid. Copeland, who was iv the
chair,' raised the point that
the motion to grant the license,
even if carried, would avail nothing
unless the chairmen of the committees
on license from both the board of alder
men and assembly would approve the
bond. Aid. Conley explained that Aid.
Zimmerman, chairman of the committee
on license from the board of aldermen,
was the only one who opposed the ap
proval of the bond, aiid at the next
meeting of the committee a new chair
man would be elected. Aid. Copeland
thought the action was unfair in the
absence ot Aid. Zimmerman. Aid.
Conley retorted that Aid. Zimmerman
was the one who was acting unfairly in
the matter. Aid. Montgomery, to head
off the result which was at this
time apparent, moved to defer
action • until the next meeting.
This was lost.and the original motion to
grant the license was then carried, Aid.
Franklin, Copeland, Hickman and
Montgomery voting against the motion,
and Aid. Comey, Cullen, Dorniden,
Jensen and Warren for it. After" the
motion to grant the license had been
announced and carried, another motion
was made by Aid. Conley that the bond
be approved. This went through, with
but Uiree voles against it, those voting
"no" being Aid. Franklin, Montgom
ery and Copeland.

A resolution was handed in by the
city attorney in the nature of a contract

The protest of citizens on Livingstone
avenue, between Isabel and Wood
street, against the construction of a
sewer on that street was sent to the
committee on streets. A final order
has been passed for the improvement
in order to improve the sanitary con

petiti'u protests against the sewer for
the reason that they cannot stand the
assessment at this time. The sewer
will cost about 81.30 per front foot to

passed. Another amendment to the
bicycle ordinance, requiring riders of
bikes to have a lighted lamp on the
machine after sunset, was sent to the
corporation attorney. Aid. Franklin
wanted all amendments brought in or
compiled into oue so that the bicycle
riders would not have to carry a large
copy of the ordinances with them.
A preliminary order, introduced by
Aid. lngersoil, was passed forthe plant
ing of shade trees along both sides of

HALF A CROP.
Wheat in Minnesota Is Not Show
ing Up Well.
The weather conditions during the
week have been very favorable to all
crops, reports Director E. A. Beals, of
the government and state agricultural
and weather bureau. There has been
an abundance ot rain fall, except in a
few counties along the Minnesota" river,
where more rain is still needed. The
nights have averaged cool, but the days
were warm, causing the temperature to
be slight iv access of the normal for this
season, which is the hottest portion of
the year. Corn will be the banner crop
this year, as not a single complaint has
so far been received, and every county
reports its condition excellent, and
many say that it never looked better,
lt is now beginning to tassel and blos
som in the southern section of the
state. Wheat has improved consider
ably since last report. It has a thin
stand, caused by the June droughts
killing the stools, and is heading short,
but filling well: the early sown, with
continued favorable conditions, will
yield from two-thirds to an average
crop. The late sown suffered much
more severely from the drought, and
nowhere will yield over one-half the
usual amount, and generally consider

That Wildwood Incident.
. Through misinformation given to a
repieseutative of the Globe, the state
ment was published on Sunday which
does injustice to A. E. Leaman, one
of the old residents of White Bear. The
statement in brief was that a woman
was drowned near Wildwood Landing
while one of his boats was there, and
that he charged $3 for the use of his
launch in going to her rescue.
The facts in the case are that when
-the drowning occurred the parties on
board his launch promptly debarked,
and Mr. Leaman's boat hastened to the
scene, doing wnat it could to aid in the
matter. A little time later the Wild
wood manager requested him to cross
the lake to . find W. S. Morton, one of
the proprietors of Wildwood, and bring
him to the scene. He was instructed to
go to Dellwood, if he could find Mr.
Morton at home, and followed instruc
tions, spending a very considerable time
in making the trip. For this service he
rendered a charge, but it had no con
nection whatever with the accident.
Those who know Mr. Leaman are aware
that he never has refused, in his many
years' residence and handling of boats
upon the lake,' to render assistance
whenever it was needed.

The demands upon this society seem
never to grow less, as we have every
day all we can attend to. The present
is a time when many can, and do, help,
themselves, who at other seasons of the
year, when their expenses are much
higher, must have some aid. We have
been fortunate in securing employment
for our poor who are able to work, ami
many Have earned considerable by odd
jobs. We are keepintf a careful record :
of our employment bureau, as operated
by our card system, and a iittle later
will give an account of their earnings.
We are having less unworthy people
apply for aid, and therefore less Inves
tigations to make. The stringency in
our money market has made it exceed
ingly difficult to obtain the usual
amount of funds which we need to
reimburse our treasury, which has been
through the long, hard winter so heav
ily drawn upon.
It is a source of pleasure to mention
that the thirty-five different societies
and institutions, as well as the churches,

constantly to accomplish the objects of

where the dread disease diphtheria hail
taken hold ot the mother and two chil
dren, thereby depriving the father from
pursuing his work from day to day; and

they could get no one to go near the
premises, and the mother and two chil

We have at present three families in
distress, needing transportation to rela
tives. Two other families, who will in
a tew days be set upon the street for
non-payment of rout: the father of one
of these families is an experienced book
keeper, and held a responsible position
in the county treasurer's office in an
other city previous to coming here. He
said to me with tears in his eyes. "I can
do without my regular meals, but 1 can
not stand it to see my children crying
Just at present when the city seems
to be undergoing such a stringency in
money matters, we are put to our wits
ends to know what to do with these dis
tressed families, but we trust soon there
will shine upon us a brighter ray of
prosperity, and our good honest toilers
will be able to secure employment
which will enable them to care for their
families. We have been called recently
to aid a number of people who, through
the sad calamity that befell tha Bethel
home, were rendered practically help
less. Having met with such generous
and cheerful response from the citizens
in the matter of clothing, etc., we nave
been able to care for all who have been
reported and found, also have put some
cash in the treasury ot the Bethel as
We cannot refrain from referring to
this exceedingly sad calamity, whicn iv
the province of God, for some cause un
known to us, has removed from our
midst oue of our noblest Christian chari

we stand and sorrow at the sudden re- !

The treasurer. Daniel R. Noyes, re
ported that at the beginning of the
quarter just passed there was $98.90 on
hand; have received *5535.30, and ex

hard times. If all the debts were paid
the society would be in debt $100. The

utmost to in,* 1 even the strongest de
mands upon it. All of the loans have
been allowed to the poorest people, and
a great deal more money than we can
command could be used if we had it. :
In referring to the board of control
it was said that at the present time the
board was giving only a very limited
amount of help to the poor on account ■■
of lack of funds. This throws more

to all who were contributors and to
others whom he might think were in

In speaking of the relations of this
society to the associated charities the
financial aspect of the question was dis
cussed and some plans that the associ
ated charities had proposed to raise
money were spoken of and discussed.

ABANDONED THE IDE
COMMERCIAL BODIES OF ST. PAUL
WILL CALL NO CONVENTION.
THE REPEAL IS EXPECTED.
Boss McKenzie, of North Dakota,
Says That State Is All Bight—
Corn Is Out of Sight, anil
Still the People Want Free
It is extremely improbable that there
will be any call issued for an anti-silver
convention, at lease so far as the com
mercial bodies of St. Paul are con
cerned. The idea originated in" the
chamber of commerce, which body has
now adjourned until Monday, Sept. 4,
almost a month after congress shall
have convened In special session.
The jobbers' union and several other
organizations took up the suggestion of
the chamber of commerce in an appar
ently friendly spirit. For a time it
seemed that St. Paul would take the
lead in calling for a convention of rep
resentatives from the commercial bodies
of surrounding states for the avowed
purpose of opposing the aims the
advocates and friends of silver. But
some thoughtful and influential men
have been at work and have about
turned the tide.
As mentioned in yesterday's Globe,
their idea is that all has been done that
is necessary on the line of opposition to
silver and in favor of repeal of the
Sherman law. "Northwestern sentiment
has been unmistakably voiced on these
points," said a leading jobber yester
day, "and we know that at least' five of
our seven congressional representatives
will vote for repeal. It will be unwise,
in my opinion, to attempt to go further
at present. Those who still favor an
anti-silver convention arc, I think, talk
ing to keep their courage up."
The result— or rather lack of result— of
the conferences at the rooms of the job
bers' union yesterday and the day be
fore indicates that the gentleman al
luded to above has hit the situation off
about right. When the conference com
mittee met yesterday no one seemed to
know just where they were at or what
they were going to do. For an hour
and a half the members sat and talked,
every now and again taking a fresh
hold on the subject. But talk was all
that came of it, except, as noted in the
opening, that a decided sentiment has
develsped in favor of abandoning the
proposition to call the convention. Ad
journment was finally taken until
Thursday, when it is expected that J.
J. Hill will be present to take part in
the discussion. Mr. Hill's well-known
conservatism and business sagacity are
relied on to make his advice valuable at

Talks Glowingly of the Election*
in That State.
Alex McKenzie, of Bismarck. N. D.,is
in St. Paul on his return from a visit to
the Pacific coast. He will leave for
Chicago and the East today. In re
sponse to queries by the Globe re
porter he gave vent to the following
chunks of wisdom:
"I think the prevailing sentiment in |
my state is for free silver, though we
do not talk about the subject very
much. It is too near the harvest
"The crops? About, two-thirds
throughout the entire state. 1 should
say. I have never known but one sea
sod during the past twelve years which
gave promise of a better crop on the
Missouri slope— the section where *1
have lived. Our farming is of more di
versified nature on the Missouri. We
raise large quantities of corn out there,
and this year the com prospect is im
mense. Wheat is excellent, though not
so irood as corn. Then, you know, out
stock interests are developing with
"Oh, the financial situation is the
same out with us as elsewhere in the
country. But we have got used to it.
i.'on know the depression in North
Dakota commenced three or four years
ago, and our people have learned to do
without very much money. Our banks
are sound, however. There have been
more failures, in South Dakota, Mon
tana, Oregon, Idaho and Washington
than in my state. This is easily ex
plained. Our people have for years
been learning to go slow, and hence
were not caught with large indebted
ness when the financial pressure com
menced. There have been, no bank
failures in the Missouri country, and
both Mandan and Bismarck are fairly
prosperous, considering the general
"There is little political talk just now,
but our people are watchiug what the
policy of the party in power will be at
the approaching special session of con
gress. The Populists are not weaken
ing, 1 think. On the contrary. I think
that the depression is rather adding to
their ranks. The impression seems
general that the silver-purchase clause
of the Sherman act will be repealed,
and that it should be, because it works
purely in the interest of the silver bar
ons of the mining districts. Neverthe
less the fact remains that a majority of
the voters it: North Dakota are in favor
of free silver coinage.
"1 don't know anything about Gov.
Shortridge. I think he is still governor
of the state. I have never heard that
he was dead. But nobody knows very
much about him any more. The gov
ernor used to be a nice old man when
he was a farmer. I flunk he was not
spoiled by being elevated to the exalted
position of chief executive of the state.
We never hear anything about him.
The people of North Dakota are self
governing, and hence the office of gov
ernor is the merest sinecure.
