COUNCIL, FOR POLICY SAKE, TO
ATTACK BOARD OP PUBLIC
LAW IS SAID TO BE WORTHLESS
FOR THAT REASON THEY WILL
NOT ASK A LEGAL
ENACTMENT KNOWN TO BE FAULTY
Members of the Board Will Not be
Legislated Out of Office So
It Is quite possible that the Repub
lican council will fire its first gun at
the board of public works when the
assembly meets tonight. It has de
termined to abolish that institution if
it can do so. Accordingly the assem
bly and the board of aldermen stand
ready to adopt the law of 1895, substi
tuting a commissioner of public works
for the present board without regard
to the question of its constitutionality.
Whether the assembly will lead the
way tonight, or the action be deferred
until next week when both bodies will
hold regular meetings is uncertain, but
there is nothing uncertain regarding
the ultimate course the council will
Before the date of the inauguration—
June 2 —the members of the present
council held two caucuses on this mat
ter, and as recently as last Tuesday
the members caucused for a third time,
in order to perfect their programme.
At the caucuses held In May a com
mittee, consisting of Aldermen Mark
ham, Donahower and Bigelow, and As
semblyman Lewis—constituting the
lawyers of the common council, was
appointed to examine the act of 1895,
providing for a department of public
works, and for the appointment by the
mayor of a commissioner to succeed
the existing board of public works.
The committee was also authorized to
confer with other lawyers concerning
the act, with a view to ascertaining
whether the law is constitutional. The
members of the council are all aware
that the city maintains a legal depart
ment for the special purpose of giving
them advice upon questions of law, as
well as defending suits against the city,
but they have seen fit in this matter
tc ignore the corporation attorney and
his assistants, and have sought advice,
if they need any, from private and out
side sources. But why a committee of
lawyers should require any advice as
to the validity of the law designed to
abolish the board of public work, is
H matter of surprise to all familiar
with the act itself. The general Im
pression is that the legal luminaries of
the common council really entertain
very grave doubts of the constitution
ality of the law, and that that is one
of the reasons why they preferred not
to ask the opinion of the corporation
attorney, anticipating that that official
would hold the act unconstitutional,
which is an opinion they do not relish.
So, during the past three weeks the
committee of lawyers have been study
ing, contriving and framing arguments
in support of the validity of the act.
The chief question that is distressing
the committee are these: Is not the
act of 1895 unconstitutional on the
ground that it is special legislation,
and second, is not the act a mere
amendment, extension of modification
of the former law creating the St. Paul
board of public works, instead of be
ing a repeal of the same, and for that
That the law is essentially special in
its application to St. Paul alone is un
questioned by anybody. It specifically
provides for the substitution of a com
missioner of public works for the board
of public works in all cities of the
state having a population of 100.000 or
more and also having a board of public
worke. St. Paul is the only city in the
state affected by this law, as no other
city in the state with a population of
100,000 or more has a board of public
With such a strong doubt existing as
to the constitutionality of the act, the
Common council need hardly expect
that Commissioners Gorman, Quinby,
Hare and Bannholzer of the board of
public works, will surrender their
seats promptly upon-the passage of a
resolution or ordinance adopting the
act of 1895. On the contrary It is safe
to say that these gentlemen will not
step out of their present offices-until
the supreme court declares the act
abolishing the board to be constitu
tional. But, as already intimated, the
Republican council will not go into the
question of validity of the act, but will
adopt it in any event purely as a party
measure and as a stroke of political
Several interesting measures will be
discussed and probably disposed of to
night. Among them are the ordinance
providing for the licensing of dogs and
the resolution authorizing the mayor
to appoint six dog catchers for three
months and five men with teams to
assist, them. Both measures have been
passed by the board of aldermen.
Aid. Bigelow's bicycle ordinance,
passed by the board, as well as the
ordinance adopted by Geo. W. Mark
ham and introduced by Mr. Kirke, will
also be considered. ,
TO CULTIVATE MINISTERS.
F. C. Warner's Experience Hae
Tuujslit Him Something.
F. *C. Wagner, of the First ward, who
wanted to be license inspector, but was
turned down by Mayor Doran, has de
cided that it is good policy to stand
in with the ministers. Of course just
before election the vote getters are the
ones who have the edge and get the
promises but afterward the ministers
seem to have the plums. Mr. Wagner
is sore and don't care Who knoWs it.
He Was the choice of the banner Re
publican ward for the position of li
cense inspector, and says Mr. Doran
admitted he was the man for the place.
Instead the appointment was given to
Maloney simply because he was ident
ified with a select circle, who, it is said,
threatened to make it warm for the ad
ministration unless their man was giv
en the job.
An official who was present at the
time Maloney was given his commis
sion is authority for the statement that
Mayor Doran informed the hew license
inspector that in addition to his official
duties in looking after the licenses he
would also be required to keep the min
isters in check. To this Maloney re
plied that he thought it Would require
all his time to look after the licenses of
the city without devoting any time to
The fact that there has been no com
plaints regarding the keeping open of
the saloons on Sunday and after 11
o'clock p. m., as threatened, Would in

head off the promised crusade.

three years last past. Gadbois has
never denied that he was. and is a
member of the A. P. A. association, so

Mayor Doran requested the resigna
tion of Patrolman Michael Rafter yes
terday, and Mr. Rafter compiled with
the request. Rafter was appointed a
patrolman last February. Prior to
that time he was a coachman in the
employ of C. D. O'Brien. He was con
sidered an efficient police officer.
The mayor appointed Ross R. Miller
in place of Rafter. Mr. Miller was, un
til recently, the assistant foreman in
the Pioneer Press composing room, and
is very popular with his associates.

DOO COULDN'T GET AWAY.
But he Objected to Too Much Free
H. E. Conklin, who keeps a livery
stable on Snelling avenue, was in the
police court yesterday. Jt was all on
account of a bull dog which Mr. Conk
lin owns and which, atferbrding to the
statements of its owner^rjs something
of a wonder in a way. ..Two days ago
Alpha Walters entered the place of
business kept by Mr. Conklin and en- J
gaged in an argument or rather a dis
sertation on the free silver question.
Mr. Conklin and the men employed
about the barn listened until the talk
made by Walters became tiresome and
then quietly slipped away one by one.
Walters, however, would not be headed
off and seemingly without any atten
tion to the fact that his auditors had
left kept up the talk. The bull dog
which, Mr. Conklin says, is as affable
as canines of this breed usually are
was tied to a four foot chain and could
not for this reason follow the other
hands. Walters in some way came in
reach of the pup and the animal took a
bite at him. Judge Twohy heard the
stories of the parties concerned yes
terday and then reserved sentence.
Mr. Conklin contended that he had a
right to keep the dog in his own sta
ble and as the animal was chained
up at the time the fault was not that
the dog bit Walters, but that Walters
should have gone close enough to al
low the dog to seize him.
THE WILL PROPERTY.
Fight for Its Possession Transferred
to St. Paul.
The legal flght over the property of Julia
Will has been transferred from St. Cloud to
the Ramsey county court.
This action was ori.. nally brought by a j
brother to break the will of his sister, Julia
Will, who bequeathed her entire estate to
the Order of St. Benedict, Of which she was
a member. The brother contested the will
on the ground that she did not have the
property to devise, and that she was not a
free moral agent.
The judge of probate held that she was,
and the will was admitted to probate.
The decision having been sustained by the
district court, but was later carried to the

As Julia Will died prior to her father, the
brother, Frederick Will, claims that his de-

and therefore could not devise any thereof.

GIFT TO JJRS HlMi
PRESENTED jWITff AN OIL POR
TRAIT OF HER HUSBAND,
HON J. J, HILL
BY THE LOCOMOTIVE FIREMEN.
AIT UNEXPECTED BUT PLEASING
OCCURRENCE AT THE SUMMIT
HOW THE SURPRISE CAME ABOUT.
J. J. Hannahan Malces the Presenta
tion In a Felicitous Manner
—Mr. Hill Replies.
Mrs. J. J. Hill received a very hand
some oil protralt of her husband last
night It came from a source entirely
unexpected, but was none the less a
welcome gift The occasion of the
presentation waa one of those rare sur
prises that come to most people at
some time whether they be the wives
of railroad magnates or persons less
The strangest thing about the affair
was the fact that the picture and the
presentation were the direct result of
the big railroad strike of 1894. If the
railroad workers hadn't rebelled, and
if the railroad magnates hadn't made
a winning fight in that year, then
President J. J. Hill's gallery would not
now be graced with his portrait and
the cause of labor would never have
reached so intimate a relation with
the president of the Great Northern
as it did last night.
President Hill was one of the first
magnates of the Northwest to remem
ber the distress the failure of the big
strike was bringing his ex-employes.
In every way he aided the efforts of
the railroad: boys and gave them em
ployment as fast as possible. He held
no grudges. He wanted the good men
whether they, were strikers or not.
His spirit of conciliation was promptly
seconded and the result was a feeling
of friendliness that culminated in last
night's affair. _
To further show that he Is a friend
of his employes, last Sunday Mr. Hill
placed at the disposal of the local
lodges of the Brotherhood of Locomo
tive Firemen a special train that the
members and their friends might at
tend a meeting of the grand lodge
which was in session at Duluth. Four
teen coaches made up this special train.
There were as many women as men on
board. When &H the cars were filled
the superintendent called for another,
and there were no questions asked as
to who had the right to ride in that
train if the firemen endorsed the ex
cursionist. That kindly action was the
final coal, of Are that persuaded the
members of local assembly No. 61 that
the presentation or the gift they had
In store for the wife of Mr. Hill should
be made by one of the distinguished
members of the order.
John J. Hannahan, first grand vice
mast' :• of the Brotherhood of Loco
motive Firemen, was selected to make
the pre: mtatjon. J. F. Driscoll and
David MurpEy, representing Local
Lodge, No. 61,. were In 'tn» party. There
wad? no display and a carriage; &nd cart
to carry the portrait were all that wew*
necessary to carry the gift and the re
m-esentatlves of labor to Mr. Hill's
The party reached the Summit avenue
■mansion shortly after 7 o'clock last
evening. Mr. Hannahan is Democratic
and had left his card case at home, Mr.
Hill is equally Democratic and received
the man who sent in bis name written
on a scrap, of paper with an indelible
pencil with every courtesy. When the
visitors entered Mr. Hill, his wife and
Miss Hill together with Archibald
Guthrie were in the reception hall. The
expressman had followed closely with
the big square package, and after pro
per introductions Mr. Hannahan said,
addressing Mrs. Hill:
"We have come to make you a present—a
present we believe you'll honor, not only for
Itself, but for the source from which It
comes. This gift is made as much on be
half of our wlyeß to you as a woman, as it
is an indication, from the men from the order
we represent that ;we appreciate Mr. Hill as
a man and as an employer. In the trouble
Mr. Hill had with the locomotive firemen in
the-great strtkevof two years ago, we realize
that he had much .to contend with. We also
know that men, entertain different opinions
on questions and particularly in the trying
times like that to which I refer. We know
that he made great efforts to help his men,
that he advocated arbitration, and w*V believe
that It was largely due to yo ir personal in
fluence that this friendship was s-o UiuTvly
manifested in of the railroad em
ployes. This we hfve been told, and this
our wives have ..convinced us contains a
large measure or truth. This picture is pre
sented without catering In any way to senti
ment or with tho sacrifice of any independ
ence upon our par4»l It Is, and we hope you
will so receive 'lt„ an expression of the re
gard we have lar your husband as a man
and our admirati'oS for him as a great rail
When Mtt Hannahan had finished tfie
portrait Was unveiled. Mrs. Hill
"Papa, I have got a new man."
Then, her manner changing to one of
deep feeling, in a few words she express
ed gratitude for the gift.
Mr. Hill, however, was not so silent.
He* scrutinized the elegant painting,
declared it a splendid likeness, but a
little too good looking, wanted to know
the name of the artist, and asked as
many questions about it as a boy with
his first tintype in his possession. All
present pronounced the likeness excel
lent. The subsequent proceedings were
more like a discussion of labor matters
in Mr. Hill's office, and the magnate
and labor leader met on equal terms
It so happened that Mr. Hill knew
personally the two representatives of
the local lodge of Locomotive Firemen
that were in the party and his conver
sation was directed as much to them as
to the more distinguished Mr. Hanna
han, an he appealed to them at times
for confirmation of his assertions.
Then the visitors withdrew and Mr.
Hannahan hastened to the Omaha
train en route. tp t Chicago. Hannahan
was one of tht> foremost of the A. R. tr.
leaders in Chicago during the big
strike two years* ago. He is a yt#"""&
man and moat conservative. He was
opposed to the"'Esrj'ke at that time and
he, it was, who jiiore than any of the
other leaders brought about a final ad
justment of afgiirs. But he was so pop
ular with his friends in labor ranks,
in spite of his, conservation, that he
was put up by thjefn as a candidate for
congress and Jl came within a narrow
margin of winpi^g.

The only property owners who favored
the improvement were Robert Mann
heimer and Bowlby & Co. Of th«
others, all who were questioned were
opposed to having the street paved this
year. They contended that the pres
ent wooden pavement was good
enough, and laid stress upon the fact
that many of the property owners had
already paid assessments for the pav
ing- of Fourth and Sixth streets. Ac
cordingly the board of public works de
cided to submit an adverse report.
In the afternoon the board granted a
hearing on the order to pave Cedar
street. The property owners were well
represented. Ex-Gov. Ramsey voiced
the sentiments of all when he assured
the board that the times were "infer
nal hard," and ai-gued that Cedar
street was not an important business
thoroughfare and that the present
wooden pavement would answer for an
other year, after repairing the worst
places. The board took the same ac
tion as it did in the case of Robert
street. Only one property owner fav
ored the Improvement, while seven
teen out of twenty-eight expressed
their opposition thereto.
ORDERS FOR SIDEWALKS.
Assembly Committee Considers a
Large Number of Them.
The assembly committee on streets
held a lengthy session yesterday after
noon, which was largely devoted to
passing on final orders from the board
of public works for laying and relaying
sidewalks and crosswalks, and orders
providing for the discontinuance of
sprinkling on portions of certain
streets. The committee, instead of
recommending the passage of the side
walk orders, referred most of them to
the various assemblymen according to
the districts in which they reside for
the purpose of investigation and in or
der to ascertain the wishes and views
of the property owners who would be
assessed for the improvements. The
general discussion developed upon the
part of Messrs. Reardon, Krahmer and
Thompson a disposition to question the
wisdom of the board of 'public works,
ar.d a unity of sentiment in favor of
abolishing that institution.
The committee also decided to sub
mit adverse reports on most of the or
ders for discontinuing the sprinkling
of portions of streets that are now
The committee decided hereafter to
refuse to recommend the adoption of
measures permitting the erection of
wooden buildings within the fire limits.
In other words, it is proposed to strict
ly live up to the ordinance prohibiting
the erection of such buildings or wood
en additions or repairs within the fire
A protest was received from E. S.
Willard, objecting to the paving of the
Third street hill from Pleasant avenue
to Summitt, unless the street railway
company is made to pave its tracks
from Pleasant avenue to the foot of
the Selby hill. Accordingly the com
mittee deferred action on the award of
the contract let by the board of pub
lic works to Thomas Reilly until the
next regular meeting, which will take
place next Monday at 3 p. m.
Assemblyman Kirke's bicycle ordi
nance was laid over until this after
noon, when the committee will meet
to consider it as well as the Bigelow
ordinance passed by the board of al
KNIGHTS OF MALTA PICNIC
lour Hundred Excursionists Eojoy
the Day at Russell Beach.
The -fh-st annual picnic of the St. Paul and
t \'lnneappllß commanderies. An<-if»nt and 11
--lus?trlot";? Order of the Knights of Malta, was
held at Ruscel Beach, on the shores of Lake
Chisago, yesterday. Nearly 400 members of
the order and their friend'} left the Union
depot at 8 o'clock In a sp-j-ciat train of eleven
coaches on the Duluth road, arriving at
Llndstrom at 9:30. Two-thirds of the excur
sionists were from this city while the others
composed the Mill city contingent. The 9L
Paul Knights of Malta band occupied v coach
in the middle of the train, and previous to
starting en route, and as the party drew up
at the station, entertained the pleasure seek
ers with a programme of popular musical
Upon the arrival at the picnic grounds
every thing conducive to an enjoyable day's
outing In the line of boating facilities, fish
ing te.ckle and baJM"? boosts was found In
readiness for Immediate service and the an
ticipated pleasures of the first joint picnic
were soon In process of realization.
The first event of the regularly arranged
programme was an address on the history of
the order of Knights of Malta, by Rev. M.
G. Schuman. Mr. Schuman began his r«marks
by placing the foundation of the order at
1010 A. D., and traced its progress and Influ
ence through the Crusades and successive cen
turies up to the present time. In a concise
manner which called forth the closest at
tention from his auditors.
At the conclusion of the address the ar
rangement committee put on a programme of
atl.hitic sports which ran well through the
day, though b?lng completed In time to
avoid a heavy rain storm which swept over
the lake about 5 o'clock. The game of ball
between nines picked from the commander
ies of Minneapolis and St. Paul was won In
four Innings by the St. Paul team by a score
of 11 to 3. The St. Paul commanderies were
also the victors In the tug-of-war contest,
winnlncr from their opponents in three trials.
For those who did not care to participate
in the athletic events there was dancing In
the pavilion throughout the afternoon to the
music of the Malta band. The picnicers re
turned to the city at S:3O last evening.
DIED AT BITTE.
W. >I. Itn mi It! Found Dead in His
A telegram from Butte, Mont., says: "W.
M. Ronald, formerly a well known and pros
perous merchant In the city of Winnipeg, of
the firm of Parter & Ronald, wholesale deal
ers In glass and crockery. Ronald has been
In Butte and the near towns for the past few
weeks as traveling salesman for the firm of
Wemott, Howard & Co., of St. Paul. He has
been on the spree since his advent here,
sometimes borrowing money from Manitoba
friends, and after spending it at the bar of
saloons, would wait around for others to
treat. He stopped at the Butte hotel as
long as his credit lasted, and then sought
lodging in a "two-bits" establishment. On
Friday "he slept until about 6 o'clock In the
evening, when he was discovered to be a
corpse. Coroner Richards held an request on
Saturday, but nothing was elicited to show
either foul play or an attempt at suicide. The
verdict was death from natural causes. The
Masons took charge of the body for Inter
H. A. Boardman, manager of "Wemott,
Howard & Co., was shown the above dis
patch at his residence, 451 Grove street, last
evening and asked concerning Ronald's con
nection with his firm.
"I know practically nothing about the man,"
said he, "as he was in our employ scarcely
three weeks. This was last April, and I have
neither seen nor heard of him since, until
notified by Coroner Richards, of Butte, that
he had died under peculiar circumstances in
that city last Friday. Whtle with us Mr.
Ronald was considered to have borne an ex
cellent reputation, though from other than a
business standpoint we knew little about
him. His home is. I think, however. In Win
nipeg, where his family at present resides.
How much of a family he had I do not know,
though I understand there was one son about
eighteen, years of age."
