CITY HOSPITAL AND THE NEW WARD BUILDING. (3 I ;
] end their little dispute over the oil- i
! ing of the floors, and accomplish I
j that work, which can be performed
| in a day or two.
The new structure is a three-story
I brick building of fire-proof construc
[ tion, with steel girders and hollow
, brick arches, and is shown on the i
' right hand of the accompanying pict- [
! ure. It is 203 feet long and 27 feet in
| width. It extends north and south. !
; The south end fronts on Jefferson j
' avenue and the north on Niederhofer I
\ street. Every floor is connected with [
the administration • building by cor- [
ridors. • ".""- ?.'-? - ; ?,?'
There are six large wards in the I
new building, the dimensions of each .
being 70 by. 25 feet, and there are J
also several smaller wards for the |
j treatment of cases requiring • isola- I
tion. The building will easily ac
commodate 150 patients, which num
ber all of the old buildings put to
gether cannot provide quarters for
without uncomfortable crowding.
i Of the patients now occupying the
j old ward buildings, all will be trans 7
I f erred, with the exception of those
suffering from contagious diseases, j
j and the foundlings, who will be j
I placed in separate buildings which
I were built for their special accom
modation. ' >
This necessary and valuable addi- ;
tion to the city hospital has an in- j
teresting history, even though its j
career has not yet begun. Like J
Rome, it was not built in a day.. No,
nor in a year. The first signs of it |
j made their appearance nearly four j
j years ago. The foundations were
laid then, the walls were reared, the i
street girders put in place and, .the j
slate roof constructed over all. The j
empty shell was then allowed to j
stand for nearly two years, until '
more money was provided for in the
.tax levy. ~ ; -T-- '_-•-.-- ■'■' •'*
Thereupon, in the month of May,
1834, the city council let a new con
tract for the completion of the build- ;
ing. But while the council proposes, <
St. Paul has a city comptroller who
disposes unless " the courts step "in,
as they sometimes do. ' In" this case
City Comptroller McCardy refused
at first to sign the new contract.
But three months later, "in" the fol
lowing August, the comptroller was
satisfied by the opinion of the cor
poration attorney that the money !
with which to pay the contractor
was provided for in the tax levy, and
he accordingly signed the contract. "
The final work began during the
latter part of September, just about
one year ago. •"-'■ ■ ->'■•:-.:
The amount provided for by the tax
levy of 1894 for the hospital building
fund was $42,000. The total, amount of
the contract, including the architect's
fees, was $35,480.14. . .Subsequently
Comptroller McCardy has signed a
contract for supplying and putting? in
the gas fixtures, which , amounted to
$1,045. This sum, together with ad
ditional architect's fees, brought the to
tal expenditure up to $36,958.48. -
According to the calculations of City
Physi^lon Ancker and of the members
of the Hospital Commission: there was
? still a balance in the hospital building
, fund exceeding $5,000. Realizing as these
► gentlemen did that a three-story hospital
* would be " manifestly Incomplete and
* unsatisfactory without an elevator to
, convey patients to and from the
► operating room, they let a contract for
» equipping the new building with an
* elevator. ' The contract : price . was
, $1,700. The commission , was awarded
, a contract for paving the approach to
► the hospital, which amounted to $783.
► These contracts were • approved and
► confirmed by both bodies of the com
, mon council, but when they " reached
► Comptroller McCardy, that official re
► fused to sign either,, of - them. Asked
► for his reason, ? the comptroller In
* formed the hospital commiss'slori that
► there was no more money in the treas
► ury to the credit of : the hospital build
► Ing: fund. v ■ '
► -In vain did the hospital : commission
► and city . physician expostulate with
y Comptroller McCardy. The former In
► sisted-that the whole $42,000 had not
► ; been .: expended. 1 The comptroller ? in
* sisted that "? the \ fund was . exhausted.
J He admitted that the entire $42,000 had
THE SAINT PAUL DAILY GLOBE: TUESDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 1, 1895.
not been expended, Inasmuch as the tax
collections,, so. "he explained, had not
yielded that amount. It was the old,
old story, of delinquent taxes which j
the unpaid policemen and firemen take I
such delight !In . hearing. The hospital f
commission, and the city physician .'
coaxed, pleaded and fought with the
grim ; watch dog- of the treasury, . but
their : efforts proved futile. McCardy
was adamant. Consequently . the new
ward building, otherwise a model hos
pital, has no elevator.
Commenting upon this condition of
affairs, Dr. Ancker said yesterday:
"If Comptroller McCardy had signed
these last two contracts, the hospital
would have been finished as original- '
ly planned, and there would still have
been about $2,000 to the credit of the
fund. All I have to say. now is that
the absence of the elevator in the hos
pital is sure, to entail extraordinary
hardship upon the patients. "Instead j
of transferring patients in their wards, |
and to and from the operating room on !
the third floor of the administration
building on wheeled stretchers, which
would be simply rolled on to the ele
vator, we will be obliged to carry'
them long distances in old canvas lit
ters. In conveying them up and down
stairs. It is impossible to avoid chang
ing the position of the patient who is
thus subjected in some cases to a
serious hardship. Then, to, the ab
sence of an elevator renders -It impos- j
sible to distribute food, propertly heat
ed, to the various wards. With an ele- |
vator, the food could be conveyed in j !
a large-wheeled . receptacle containing ,
a hot water reservoir, which would ;
maintain the food at . the proper tern- j
perature, whereas now it must all be
carried by hand, and the consequence
is, much of the food is cold by the
time it reaches the patients."
Comptroller McCardy when asked to
explain the condition of the hospital
building fund,' . replied sententiously:
"There is no such fund In existence.'
It Is all used up." . ' -?■"'?. '-?
The controversy between the comp
troller and the hospital commission
over the hospital fund will probably
never be settled. The comptroller
takes the stand that the . fund is ex
hausted, .? Inasmuch as all that was
collected- for?. that purpose under the
tax levy' has been expended, and that
the balance which the hospital , com 7 ?
mission and city physician insist is in
the treasury, 1 Is represented by delin
quent taxes yet to be collected. . .
A public reception will be held in the
new ward building on the day that it
is delivered over to the • city and
county authorities. The myaor and
other city and county officials will be
present, speeches will be delivered,
and the guests wll be served? with lem
onade. Dr. Ancker vouches for this
last feature of the programme.

Episcopal Convention Delegates
. to Be Invited to St. Paul.
The chamber of commerce, at its reg
ular meeting yesterday morning, re
ceived a communication from prof.
Herbert W. Smith, of Minneapolis, re
ferring to the convention! in 1897 of the
American Association .: for _ the Ad
vancement of Science, which has been
invited to meet In St. Paul that year.
Prof. Smith informed the chamber, that
the Invitation must be renewed when
the association meets in Buffalo next
year, as it declined* to consider any in
vitation ; more than one year jin ad
vance. The communication was re
ferred to the executive committee.
Mr. Peet, of the executive commit
tee, spoke of the coming-Episcopal
convention in Minneapolis, ? and said
that it would be no more than proper
for St. Paul to Invite the clergy and
the lay delegates as well to visit this
city. The chamber adopted , a resolu
tion inviting the convention to come
to St. Paul and enjoy a carriage drive
about the city. Thursday of next
week will probably be the day selected.

J The. board of . aldermen -recently

I mittee "on streets. After ~a some
what lengthy discussion yesterday, ,
■ the committee, on motion of Mr. Van

I city attorney - for an opinion as to ;
• the right of the city to grant the
j lease, as a portion of the land is coy- j
j ered by the Mississippi's waters and
i the United States government might
I have something to say? It was also "
i the desire of the committee to apper
! tain whether, in case ' the lease . was
' granted, the ; city or '; the company
I acquiring the lease would be liable
! for any damage resulting from floods
! or other accidents resulting from the

• The commitee devoted some "of : its
■ time to discussing a resolution look
ing towards the building of a new
bridge at Raymond avenue, over the
Northern Pacific* arid 'Great North
ern-tracks and r.- the > tracks of the
Transfer company; The resolution
[ instructs the city engineer to pre
pare plans and: specifications, both
for an iron . and a wooden bridge.
City Engineer Rundlett Informed
the committee that the present wood
en bridge at this point was in a very
dangerous condition. ; ? Recently .he
had condemned - , it as unsafe, a.nd
had it repaired, but a notice is post
ed ;at each ? end warning the public -
not to attempt to r transport across :it
over ? 1,000 pounds at a time. Mr.
Rundlett went on to say that the"
people of St Anthony ; Park wanted,
an iron .bridge In its ■ place ?; sixty.
I feet in width. Such a structure would
cost'; $60,000, and moreover it would'
take at : least six? weeks to? prepare
the : plans ' and specifications for an'
iron ". bridge. ; ' V- Furthermore, 'ifs it : was
decided :to build van iron bridge,? a
dispute would arise at once between
the ? Northern Pacific road and - the
Transfer company on one hand and
the city of St. Paul on the other as
to what proportion of the cost the.
city should pay. ? ? There was no ques
tion in Mr? Rundlett's mind as to thei
liability of ; the ? Northern Pacific 'to
pay a portion of the cost of the
bridge, ' under ; the ruling of the • su
preme court, as Raymond avenue
was opened at that point before the
Northern ■: Pacific ? secured .- its ■ high
way there. j ■:.'?.'' ";'?':■;'.
• Mr. Rundlett also - informed \ the
committee that ?a V wooden bridge
would cost only $4,200 and would last
for? ten years.- -" As for; the plans arid
specifications they could be prepared
in a few . days. ?. Mr. : Rundlett urged
the importance 1 of immediate action
in the matter, as the present wooden
bridge "isj in such' a . condition that
something should be done ; at once.
"An iron structure is out of the
question this year,?' added Mr. Rund
lett, "as there only $16,000? in the
; bridge fund;: now, and the " $60,000
necessary, or i. whatever . sum the
bridge would cost, would have to be
provided ' for in the ? tax estimate for.
'next year. "..'-: '.''"?.'-.■'.'?:?••:,..
The committee referred the matter
to , the ; corporation attorney for an
opinion as to what proportion of

would be obliged to pay. ? ' «."
' The committee decided to make an
adverse report . on Aid. . Brady's or
dinance prohibiting the sprinkling of
; salt on the streets in the winter sea
son. Mr. : Rundlett gave 7 it; as his
opinion : that there were times when
-the street car 1 tracks could not be
cleared in any? other way.

:f State Treasurer Koerner has returned
from j Cleveland, whither he had gone
in search of some lumber on which the
t state had a claim. The lumber in the
I form of timber had been sold to Lop
per & Lumley, of Duluth, and there was
a balance due the state on. the same. of
; $3,800. The firm was drawn on for this
•amount, but ; it had made an assign- >
» ;ment..to Paige. Morris, and -besides, the
First • National i Bank of Duluth, had a
. claim against the logs tor $5,000.
:fi It was : discovered that ( the logs had
been cut into lumber and shipped ,to
"Duluth ;in the same boat ? with several
% other ' lots. In order to avoid * attach
ment the lumber had been shipped in
i the ' name of Morris Thomas, who was
under bonds to Lopper & Lumley, and
as soon as jit was unloaded at Cleve- ;
land, it was scattered around on the
wharves? The state can . secure the
amount of its claim all right, for there
is a clause :in the chattel mortgage
given the bank at Duluth, stating that
the state had a lien on the. lumber and
the I same ; appears on. the back of the

YET THE LABOR DEPARTMENT,
CANNOT GET A PRINTING
APPLIED FOR IT IN JUNE,
AND HAS URGED ITS NECESSITY.
SEVERAL TIMES SINCE
COULD NOT GET STEVENS TO ACT
No Money for the " Job Except
, Using; the Contingent
The end of the difficulties in which
the state printing commission has
been involved by State Expert Print
er Stevens is evidently, not yet in
sight. Yesterday Commissioner
Powers made, a requisition on the
office of the secretary of state (the
source of supplies) for some cards
•that he had asked for in June, and
was informed that if the' printing of
the cards was done it would have to
be paid out of the contingent fund
of the labor bureau.
Asked about the matter Mr. Pow
ers said that the work in question
was only. a matter of $4 or $5, and
that ever since June, when he made
the first request that the cards in
question be printed, Mr. Stevens had
always been ready with some trifling'
excuse .to account for his negligence
in not attending to the work for
which :tihe state pays him a good
round sum every year. •-,.-... -.• .
Speaking further of' the difficul
ties of having work done by the
printer at the time it is ordered, or
having it paid for when done, Mr-
Powers quoted ; a case that occurred
when he had in preparation his last
annual report. To do some of the
illustrated work, he found it neces
sary to employ a young man of the
engineering department of the state
university, and when the work was
done it required six weeks for the
expert printer to make out a vouch
er for the amount, $50, due the stu
dent. These are only a few samples
of the way the doing of work is al
leged to be postponed by State Ex
pert Printer Stevens.
REV. J. C. HULL SATISFIED.
He Explain* Hl* Reasons for the !
• '£'■?'■'.£'- . Course He Took. .? ; ?'-f-.
Rev J. c. Hull to more than satis
ned with. the outcome of his misunder
standing with a part of the Clinton
Avenue M. E. congregation:
"I have nothing but the best of
wishes • for the success and prosperity '
of th Chnton Avnue church," said !
™ k,.^ 1 yeSterdaY - "" M y object in i
publicly exposing the A. P. A. boycott i
was to defeat the appointment of an !
.;£■ £' preacher ; and I am satisfied j
with the results, notwithstanding the
spattering of mud which I received in
the experience. The new pastor ap
pointed is perhaps, all in all, the best >
man of the entire conference to take
the position: and If the church joins ;
heartily with him. as I have no dtubt !
it will, there is nothing to hinder sue- i
cess. '.'■;" . ■-•"_'.'.
' - "As to charging me with falsehood In
stating. that I - had paid the gas bills? j
water rent, etc?, myself, the fact is !
that the church agreed to pay me so |
much asa salary, and so much addi
tional for the expenses of the church, I
as I was trying, to economize for them ;
and prevent the accumulation of all !
debts; but the whole amount paid was '
.very much less than the allowance for :
salary, but out of that I paid all the i
expenses of the church, with the ex- :
ception of a small amount for sweep
ing. That Is what I call paying the
bills myself. An analysis of any other
charges of falsehood will turn out about
the same way. However, lam glad
to leave the church without any bills j
to take care of so far as running ex- j
penses are concerned, and If my good '
will i» worth anything toward its ■
prosperity, the way is clear." "

POLICE COURT MELANGE. 1??
Cases That Came Up for Consider
ation Yesterday. •
. In the municipal court yesterday
. Andrew Godfrey, a hostler,? escaped
. punishment for forgery by pleading
. guilty *to petit larceny and thank
fully accepting a sentence of ninety
days at Como. Herman W. Vuckel a
Payne avenue butcher, stated that 'he I
had • received from Godfrey a forged
check |on the Scandinavian-American
bank - for . $10. The ckeck was made
payable to', Godfrey under the name
of Serene, and purported to be signed
by J. B. Morehead, I the liveryman, of
Ninth street and Selby avenue. When
the case first came up, Godfrey waived
examination and was about to be held
to the grand jury, but the county at
torney expressed a willingness to al
low the prisoner to plead guilty to
the lesser charge of petit larceny.
Minnie Corrigan. aged fourteen, and
Celia McDonald, aged ; sixteen, both
charged . with larceny, were ; discharged.
It has already been mentioned that
Celia, while working in a West side
: boarding : house, , received a visit from
Minnie, immediately after ..which a
stick pin and ; some clothing were not
to be found. Celia said Minnie took
the pin, Minnie- reciprocated? the flat,
tery, and the testimony, resembled that
. sweet dialogue of ■> artless childhood—
"youdld !— Pdldn't !— did !— didn' t !— did !"-• i
Minnie? was certainly the younger of !
- the two girls and in r her behalf Attor- !
ney Walsh kindly volunteered, reprov- ':
ing the older girl for apparent malice! '
The evidence proved too conflicting to ;
be conclusive.- ?
Bernard Edelstein, for keeping his*
saloon open after 11 ; p. m.,* contrary to
the state law, was discharged, the com-?
plaint having been withdrawn. Judge'
Orr stated t that he had ' no sympathy
for "such, a prosecution when it was
felt necessary to have recourse to the
; state law. '[^^^^^J^SBBB^SfBBtmSi
