a storm of applause greeted him. For

The players dropped their instruments
to join in the welcome.

MARKS DIDN'T DRAW.
A Barber and a Bohemian at
A crowd of men and boys stood in
front of Lyles' barber shop yesterday
afternoon, watching the antics and
threatening gestures of a barber and an
angry Bohemian named Marks. The
latter was making threatening motions
from a hip pocket, and the colored chap
was moving about iv a wild way and
ejaculating, "Don' you draw no razor
on me. Jes you try dat on. I'll fix you
plenty.*' Marks hunted around the
streets for a policeman, and then went
*jo the chief's office and wanted a war
rant, saying that the colored man had
moved into his house without asking
him, and, when rent was demanded, the
colored man had hit him in the face.
Marks was told to come around the next
day and swear out a warrant, but in his
wrath he demanded the arrest of the
man before night.

AN UNDIGNIFIED RIDE.
The Rear End of a Dirt Wagon
At 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon the
passers upon Fourth street and the
habitues and Arabs of the locality were
given a free show, in the shape of a
well dressed aud handsome woman rid
ing at the rear end of a dirt wagon, sit
ting upon the rough and dirty boards
with her feet hanging down. - She was
given a furious ovation of jeers and
shouts and yells, but remain undis
turbed. However, when she got a
glimpse of Jim Ahem. her feelings
overflowed, and she waved her hand at
him joyously. Just what the perform
ance meant no one on the street knew;
but it was presumed that she was tak
ing this ridiculous ride through the busy
street on a wager.

Paying Men to Work at Clean

Grist of Municipal Work.
There were two absentees at the regu
lar meeting of the board of aldermen
last night.? Aid. Ingersoll was reported
sick and Aid. Montgomery out of the
city. A large amount ?of routine busi
ness was transacted, the more impor
tant being given below:
Aid. Cullen introduced a resolution
authorizing the -.proper city officers to
negotiate and sell 50,000 worth of cer
tificates ofiudebtediiess with interest at
6 per cent, to run two years trom date,
the proceeds to be placed in the city
treasury for the purpose of advancing
the interests of the city.
Aid. Cullen, in speaking to the reso
lution, said the mayor had called a
meeting of twenty citizens tor the pur
pose of consulting and devising ways
and means to put some of the unem
ployed laboring men at work. Sub
committees on finance and census had
been appointed. The committee on
census was now having taken a list of
those who had resided in ; St. Paul for
six months who had families dependent
upon them, and who were willing to
work for $1 per day. The finance
committee had found the only
available means from the city was the
unexpended portion of the $10,000 fund
which under the charter was to be used
for the best Interests of the city. As
soon as the census mentioned was com
pleted it was the intention to expend a
portion of the $9,000, which was all that
remained of the $10,000 fund, in clean
ing the alleys and streets and in fur
nishing other employment. The cit
izens' committee was anxious to have
the resolution passed, aud as it was in
the interests of those unemployed in the
city at the present time, Ala. Cullen
asked all members present to vote for
GO SLOW, SAYS FRAXKLIX.
Aid. Franklin opposed the voting of
the money at this time. The question
of putting $9,000 of the city money in
the hands of a citizens' relief committee
he thought should be looked into and
how the money was to be expended ex
plained. He was in favor of deferring
action until a joint meeting of the alder
men and assembly could 'discuss the
matter. The time, he thought, was not
ripe for the issuance of the certificates.
Aid. Culleu called attention to the
fact that all of the votes of tnose pres
ent were necessary to pass the resolu
tion, and, as the matter was one of vital
importance, he hoped there would be
Aid. Franklin withdrew his objection
and the resolution was passed.
Aid. Cooeland presented a petition
from property owners on Jessamine
street, asking that the street between
Earl and Forest streets, be graded as
soon as possible. The argument was
advanced that grading would give worn

were now unemployed, aside from its
being a public necessity. A preliminary
order for the grading of the street was

A VETO SUSTAINED. ■' '
The mayor's veto of the resolution
directing the placing in the tax levy for
next year an amount sufficient to pay
for the lighting of University and Como
avenues. Rice, Acker. Courtland, Case
and . Jessamine streets, was sustained.
The mayor stated in his veto that the
lighting of the streets was now done by
gasoline lamps. The change to gas
would involve an expenditure, about
$6,000, and at the present time the city,
he said, ought not to expend money
except when absolutely necessary.
A substitute resolution was then in
troduced and passed directing the |
proper city officers to place in the tax
levy of 1894 an amount necessary to
light the following streets with gas
lamps: Summit avenue, from Griggs to
Victoria streets: University, from Dale
to Lexington; Case, from Payne to
Westminster; Jessamine, from Payne
to Bradley; Rice street, from Como to

a REPEALING ordinance REFERRED.
Aid. Warren introduced au ordinance
repealing one passed and approved
April I, 1882. allowing the Chicago, Mil
waukee & St. Paul railway the right to
erect a freight boose on the levee be
tween Sibley and Wacouta streets. The
ordinance introduced by the Eighth
ward alderman also directed the railway
company to vacate the property and to
surrender the possession of the property
within sixty days after the passage of
Aid. Warren said the railway com
pany had the ordinance passed simply
to give them the right to put up a frame
warehouse for a period of two years
and had no right or title to the prop
erty under the 1882 ordinance. The
ordinance he introduced was simply to
give the company notice that the city
claimed title to the property. Iv a suit
brought by the city to quiet title to the .
land between Wacouta street and
Broadway the railroad company had
claimed the land under the right of ad
verse possession, alleging it had been
in possession for twenty years. The
courts decided in favor of tbe Milwau
City Attorney Chamberlain explained
that the case had been carried to the
supreme court -by the city and the de
cision of the lower court affirmed. A
motion for a new trial, however, had
been made, and the supreme court had
granted the motion which would
allow another trial, in the dis
trict court. The ordinance intro
duced by Aid. Warren, he thought,
would have no effect on the case one
way or the other, as it referred to land
other than that at issue iv the suit. The
point made by Aid. Warren's ordinance
was that the former ordinance granted
the railroad in 1882 for permission to
erect a freight house on the land for
two years, if repealed before twenty
years had expired, would prevent the
company claiming adverse "possession.
While this point would do under some
circumstances, the tacts were that the
railroad company held the ordinance of
1882 simply gave them permission to
erect a modern building on the land.
They claimed to have possession of the
land at the time, which point had been
brought out at the trial of the otlier suit.
The city attorney, also said a law haa
been passed by the legislature two years
ago wliich prevented the claim of ad
verse possession to city property, but
this law would only apply to cases after
the passage of the law. •
After some discussion the ordinance
was referred to the committee on
streets. Z-Z ■:!•«-••-■•■

The bill for $201 sent in by City
Treasurer Miller for expert services in
examining books inthe office was re
ported back from the committee on

The billon motion of Aid. Franklin
was ordered sent to the comptroller to

secured in favor of such., action the

Later in the evening Mr. Miller sent

The same official also -sent In a
lengthy communication relative. to the
manner In which ex-Treasurer Reis

Comptroller McCardy informed the
council. that the recommendation of the
mayor as to the consolidation of the fire
and police alarm systems was a good
thing, particularly as responsible par
ties offered to take charge of the whole
business for $3,000 per annum.
The communication also requested
the repeal of the resolutions authoriz
ing extra help in the office of the super
intendent of police alarm. The laws of
18S7, he said, provided that the super
intendent should receive $3,200 per an

Rev. Father Caillet performed the cere
mony and officiated at the nuptial mass.
Both of the contracting parties are well
known members of St. Paul society,
aud before the arrival of the bridal
party the church was packed. The
doors of the church were closed upon
the arrival of the carriages containing
the party, and were not again opened

The Citizens' Committee Estab-
lishes a Bureau.
A bureau for the registering ot the
unemployed was opened yesterday at
room 17 in the court house. The office
is in charge of a clerk employed by the
citizens' committee, and yesterday
sixty-seven persons availed themselves
of the registry. The condition under
which names are registered are that the
applicant must have resided in the city
for six mouths, must have a family de
pendent upon him for support and is
willing to work for $1 per day, the
wages to be paid in provisions and fuel.
Clerk Bochfeii, who has beeu placed
in charge, said last evening that sixty
seven persens had applied and had their
names registered since the office opened.
Of this number a majority were middle
aged men, and had large families de
pendent upon them. A large number
of the applicants stated they had been
employed by the city cleaning the
streets, or at work for the water board
as laborers. No attention, the clerk
said, was paid to single men, and up to
the closing hour last night not more
than a dozen of this class had applied.
There was no particular work- just at
the present time for those who regis
tered, but in course of the next three or
four days work would be found for all
Mr. Hutchins, the clerk said, had
brought in word that fifty men were
wanted at Devil's Lake to work on the
Great Northern road. The transporta
tion, Mr. Hutchins had said, was" free,
and the wages $1.50 per day, and board
$3.50 per week. A telegram had been
received stating that flfteeu men were
wanted at Kennedy's station, Kittson
county, as harvest hands. The fare
was $5 to that point, and the wages **51.50
per day and board. None of the men
who had families in the city, the clerk
said, were willing to go out of, the city
for work, or at least they aid not care
to leave tbeir families. 7-1
FOR CHEAPEN COAL.
The Anti-Combine Committee Is
Actively at Work, fffyj^
Hon. R. A. Walsh left last evening
for Chicago and Milwaukee on the busi
ness of the auti-coai combine committee.
Another member of the committee was
to go to the head of the lake to pursue
a certain line of investigation, which, it
is hoped, will result in establishing a
connection which can be worked for the
benefit of all citizens of Minnesota who
are compelled to pay trust prjees for
their coal. ■?.'*? sift 'Z>
The subcommittee of the citizens'
committee of fifty has negotiations
under way that are relied on to give a
price for anthracite coal that will be at
least $1 under the trust price on every
"Iso resource will be left untried,"
said Chairman J. J. Ryder last evening,
"that may by any possibility lead to a
reasonable reduction in the price of
coal. It is not the committee's purpose
to make war on any man or corporation,
but we are convinced that all consumers
will sustain us in every legitimate move
we may decide to make. From present
indications, after the return of Mr.
Walsh and our other messenger we shall
have something tangible to report to an
early meeting of the full committee. It
is likely that such a meeting will be
called early next week."
Hon. William Rodger . asserts that his
remarks at the meeting of last Thurs
day have been misconstrued. -What he
said was that he had been informed on
reliable authority that coal could be
purchased in Duluth for $4.75 or $5, car
load lots. But the man who made the
offer Intimated to Mr. Rodger's infor
mant that it would be impossible to
have it ; hauled on the same terms as
regular dealers, It was said the rail
road companies would either not have
cars at the time needed or would make
switching charges bring the cost of
hauling up to $3 per ton.
This - latter insinuation the railroad
officials emphatically deny; but Mr.
Rodger insists he is not to be under
stock as making the statement of his
own knowledge. He gave it simply to
show the idea prevailing among inter
ested citizens on the subject, because it
came to him from a reliable man.- .

in the shape of a petition from a num
ber of farmers foran investigation of a
piece of grading ""on the Rice street
road. Peter Orth, one oftlie petition
ers, told the board that the dirt had
been placed on the road under a former
contract that is now being removed
under another contract. Several of the
members called the statement in ques
tion, and the county surveyor asked for
specific statements on the subject. An
investigation of the profiles and papers
was had, and an explanation was made
relative to a change in the contract by
the board. ■
Mr. Orth then admitted that his .im
pressions in the matter were wrong, as
he did not know that the board had or
dered a change from the profile of the
road. He also admitted that he did not
know the work had been paid for by the
cubic yard. ;^*: : :
Mr. Lavallee stated that the board
would right any mistake made when it
is shown in a proper, way, and pay j the
expense of an engineer that will show
the work has not been done according
to contract. The matter was referred
to the committee on roads aud bridges
to be further investigated.
The report of the county treasurer on
the hospital was submitted and referred
to the committee on public records and
reports. In this connection the county
auditor warned the committee that he
wanted those institutions looked into
upon penalty of his declining to issue
any warrants in their favor uuless it is
shown that they are fully entitled to
draw the amount of bills allowed.
P. H. Thornton was allowed an esti
mate on the Edgerton street road._
Jacob Lauer was allowed a final esti"
mate on the Kohler road, and W. G"
Mulligan was allowed $1,090.44 as a final

WORK FOX TIIE NEEDY.
Commissioner Lavallee. of a special
committee, reported that it had been
ascertained that the board has the right
to encroach on the road fund for the
year 1894 by having work done by men
out of employment, and giving them
orders for groceries and fuel that may
be presented at stores and to coal deal
ers who have agreed to accept them and
present them for payment after Jan. 1.
The object of this movement is to fur
nish work for the needy. The matter
was left without any. further action by
the board. .
There was a' long wrangle, during
which many personalities were indulged
in over the letting of a contract to open
the Barlow road into the village of New
Brighton. It ended, however, in Com
missioner MeCarron carrying his point
to open the bids and let the contract.
There was a question raised as to the
obligation of tbe village of New Brigh
ton to pay for half of the making of the
road within its limits, also as to John
Farrell releasing the claim for a right
of way.' Mr. Farrell signed a memoran
dum agreeing to make a quit-claim
deed for the right of way, and the con
tract for the construction of the road
was awarded to Mike Kutskie at his bid
of $1,788.95, being nine and one-half
cents for grading, twenty-seven cents
for claying and $19 per 1.000 for lumber.
A BILL TOO HIGH.
Expert Printer William Koch refused
to approve a bill for $586.30 in
favor of tne Daily News for publishing
the special delinquent tax list. The ob
jection to the bill was that the bill was
rendered for publication by folio under
a special law, when in tact the publica
tion should have been made under the
general law which provides for paying
12"^ cents per description, which would
make the bill $165 in place of $580.30,
the amount asked. The expert reported
that he finds that all other counties in
the state published such lists. The at
torney general has been appealed to
from Fillmore county for a decision
allowing them to charge by the folio. Mr.
Koch stated that he had oeen surprised
to find that tbe News bill had been ap
proved by David Ramaley, the state ex
pert printer. . fZf'rZZ-X
The matter was referred to the com
mittee on printing and the county at
torney to investigate as to what should
be done in the premises. ...
The petition for changing a road in
White Bear township was granted, and
the county auditor was directed to issue
a warrant for changing the road.
