By a vote of eight to three the board
Of aldermen last night, in concurrence
with the action of the assembly, passed
the ordinance adopting the law of 1895,
which abolishes the board of public
works and substitutes a commissioner
of public works therefor. Aid. Al
lard. Donahower and Kenny voted
against the passage of the ordinance.
It required six votes to defeat it.
A goodly number of interested spec
tators were present to witness the out
come, as it was anticipated that the
vote to adopt the act of 1895 would
not be unanimous. The most inter
ested of them were President Gorman
and Commissioners Quinby and Hare
of the board of public works. None of
these three officials betrayed any dis
comfiture when the clerk announced
the result of the vote. The members
of the assembly who had come to the
council to attend a caucus prior to
the meeting of the board, all remained
to witness the event of the evening.
There were also present several citi
zens, more or less influential in the first
No debate attended the passage of
the ordinance. As soon as it was
reached, Aid. Lindahl moved, after it
had had its first reading, that the rules
be suspended and the ordinance be
given its second reading. Aid. Bigelow
seconded the motion.
Aid. Donahower objected to taking
huch hasty action. He said that there
was a general feeling that the ordi
nance had proceeded on its journey
thus far without the opportunity being
granted for a sufficient hearing. He,
therefore, moved that it be referred to
some appropriate committee. Nobody
seconded the motion, whereupon Aid.
I-indahl renewed the motion for a sus
pension of the rules. The motion pre
vailed by a vote of eight to three.
Aldermen Allurd, Donahower and Ken
ny voting in the negative. The ordi
nance was then given its second read
ing, and Aid. Lindahl then moved its
adoption, Aid. Bigelow seconding the
'Are there any remarks?" queried
Not an alderman ventured a remark.
The clerk thereupon proceeded to call
the -_tt. Aid. Allard voted "no" and
Aldermen Pell and Bigelow answered
"aye" to th<**i- . ames. In response to
the call of his nan*? Aid. Donahower
arose and said:
"I want to explain my vote upon
this ordinance. I propose to vote "no,"
not so much on account of my desire
to see the board of public w.rks re
tained as at present constituted, but
rather as an expression of my disap
proval of a one-headed department.
"While there may have been ex
travagances in the board of public
works, abuses might creep in under the
administration of a commissioner of
1 uhli.- works that would render the
system worse than it ls now. I there
fore vote "no."
Aid. Kenny voted in the negative but
offered no explanation, though he has
frequently and openly stated during
the past few days that he was opposed
to the city's adopting a law which he
.as convinced was full of imperfections
and likely to involve the city in trouble
President Markham was the only re
maining alderman to explain his vote.
In so doing he said:
"1 am not altogether satisfied with
some of the minor provisions of this
act. There are some things in it that
might be improved. But lam satisfied
that the act is valid, and that our valid
assessments can be made and collected
under it I would prefer to see it take
effect at a later date than Aug. 1, but
as the majority of the board favor it,
I will vote "aye."
And so the ordinance was passed
ahd all the interested spectators de
Earlier in the evening two communi
cations relative to the ordinance were
received, one from the Lincoln club, in
the shape of a resolution demanding its
adoption and the other from the cham
ber of commerce, enclosing the reso
lution requesting the board of alder
men to delay taking action on the mat
ter last night.
The nrosoects that a new school
building will be erected in the Eighth
ward are brighter than they* were 10
days ago. The resolution from the as
sembly authorizing the erection of a
separate school building on the city's
pioperty at Wayzata and Albemarle
streets, was adopted by a unanimous
vote, nine votes being required. The
resolution limits the amount of money
to be expended for the new building to
$12,000, which is 80 per cent of the
$lf«.000 set a siide by the council last win
ter for the erection of an addition to
the Gorman school.
The assembly ordinance reducing the
salaries of the regular patrolmen to
$70 a month, and fixing the salaries of
all patrolmen appointed slrtce June 1,
1596 to $55 a month for the first Six
months after the taking effect of the
ordinance, was defeated, on recommen
dation of the committee on police.
A communication was received from
the mayor recommending that the ordi
nance regulating peddler's licenses be so
amended as to provide for the payment
of the license fee of $75 a year. In three
monthly installments of $25 each, but
!n case of default in any payment the
license is to be forfeited. An ordinance
embodying such an amendment was
placed upon its passage under suspen
sion of the rules. It was adopted by a
vote of 10 to 1. President Markham
voting in the negative.
The action of the mayor In removing
from the police force William O'Brien
and Charles O'Glll was concurred in.
An ordinance was passed prohibiting
the display within 150 feet of Como
park of any advertising device or the
erection of any structure for the pur
pose of advertising.

and Cedar streets from Third to
Seventh streets with asphalt were re
ferred to the committee on streets. The
board of public works adhered to its
previous adverse report on these final
orders, but submitted the orders to the
council for its rejection or approval.
An adverse report was received from
the committee on streets on the final
order for paving Broadway with sand
stone from Third to Seventh street.
Aid. Kenny, the chairman of the com
mittee, explained that it was the de
sire of the property owners interested,
to obtain bids on granite, asphalt and
brick pavements as well as sandstone.
The adverse report was adopted.
Subsequently Aid. Kenny Introduced
a preliminary order for paving Broad

The order was passed.

CANNOT MAKE THEM PAY.
When (miles the Delinquent Per
sonal Ta_ Lint.
After the county commissioners had
got through with the delinquent per
sonal property tax list, there were but
593 names left thereon out of something
like 1,500 or over. Officials who have
had to deal with the cases in years
past say the county would be money
ahead if every name was stricken off
as soon as reported delinquent. They
insist that not enough money is ever
collected on the list to pay the fees of
the sheriff and clerk of courts. The
593 names left on the list will now be
entered up as separate cases by the
clerk of court. Then executions will
issue to the sheriff, who has until Oct.
Ist to make returns. Against those
who fail to pay, judgments will be en
tered. Opposite the names of those
who pay, the word "satisfied" will be
written. If a delinquent owns any real
property' and desires to sell it, he must
satisfy the judgment entered against
him on the books. In this way a small
amount is collected every year, but not
much. In ten years the judgments are
outlawed, and the delinquents are free
to sell a world if they happen to have
The following table shows the number
of names left on in each assessment
district and the amounts set out for
collection by the sheriff.
First 3G $3,303.51
Second 89 2,546.71
Third 68 1,241.00

In revising the lists as returned by
the auditor the county commissioners
are supposed to use care in striking off,
and they insist that no one is favored
by being erased if there is any chance
of making the collection. In many
cases, probably a majority, the amount
is so small that it would be an extrav
agant waste of money to pay the offi
cials for attempting to collect.

magnificent Pacific liners sailing be

artist, portraying the departure of the
"Empress" from Vancouver harbor.
The work is well executed, the coloring

MRS. ROO! ngjLo AGGRESSIVE.
____ln* Her Urtp o_* the Varlons
W. CL T. U.'_k
"Well its lo* _|<_re thaa I expected."
remarked a W . C. T. U. woman yester
day when she learned that the Hamllne
union had given up the rescue work.
And this seeWd'the sentiment of the
entire band fef women connected with
the local unitmn/ How much the local
unions are responsible for this move
on the part of the Hamllne women, if
they are resfcomftble at all, it is hard
to say. Cei_y n it is that since the
Hamllne union first took up the work
there has been an under current of 111
feeling among all the unions which
even the best efiSorts of the more gen
erous of the women have been unable
to conceal. Whether this feeling was
directed at the- former president, Mrs.
S. V. Root, or to the union as a whole,
it was not possible to determine as it
was only voiced In snatches at times
of thoughtlessness, by some of the more
talkative members. But it has cropped
out at local meetings and those on the
Inside have long predicted a rupture,
and it has come. At a meeting last
week, Mrs. R oa t resigned her office as
president of the Hamllne union on ac
count of her duties in connection with
the rescue work, and at a called meet
ing held at Hamline Monday, the union
decided to return the rescue work to
the citizens league. The alleged reason
is that the union has not the funds to
carry on the work.
Mrs. Rich, the present president of
the union, was seen yesterday at her
home at Hamllne and said that there
was no trouble at all in connection
with the rescue work. The union simply
felt that It could not spare the funds
necesaarv toward the furthering of
Its interests. The members felt that
they should work along the lines for
which they had organized rather than
undertake work they could not do jus
tice to. So far as the financial side of
the work is concerned it would seem
that the dollar a month promised by
each union toward the rescue league,
is all there is to, 'it. However, this may
not be so.
At the meeting of Somerset union
yesterday, the matter was not ment
ioned at all until the arrival of a re
porter and then all questions on the
subject, the . women professed entire
Ignorance. And all agreed that it was
a matter the Hamllne union should set
tle alone and. that any action the local
unions should take in the matter would ,
only injure the cause.
The Willard 'W; C. T. U. also met
yesterday afterrttjon, but took no act
ion in the maftter of the rescue league
work. One of the members was asked
what the trouble was between Mrs.
Root and the W . C. T. U.s and she re
.. plied, that thefe* was no particular
trouble, and What there was, they
didn't want the newspapers to mention.
"Has the Hamllne W. C. T.U. repud
iated Mrs. Root?" she was asked.
"Oh no, the Hamline W. C. T. U.
has not repudiated her, but they have
simply drawn oat of the work. The
trouble with "Mrs .! Root is that she is
too bossy; You know in what sense we
use that word. Mrs. Root is too arbi
trary and none of the- unions .like the
-way .n which. she says. and does some
things. She Is too outspoken: We do not
Hke -that. 'Still, we thi_k she.. is sincere
and that she can accomplish good. But^
unless we can get her to -temper down"
a little, I suppose something will have
to be done. Of course she was ambit
ious to become district president so that
she could unite the state work and the
local work. But she was defeated for
that in a way ,1 do not think was
just fair. However, she has the sup
port of the city unions, I think, if she
will only bepome less aggressive and
when she has things to say and peo
ple to talk about, If she will do so with
a little more consideration than she
has shown up to this time everything
will go along nicely."
The Christian Citizens league, of
which . W. L, Wilson is president, does
not fa-tend to take up the work as a
league; but thinks it too, important to
drcp altogether and has appointed W.
L. Wilson and G. L. Coh_ey'6n a com
mittee to form a committee to see what*
can be done toward keeping the rescue
league up. The Hamline union 'took' the
work up March 15, and.. .carried. -it to
July 20. In that length of time $134.92
passed into the treasury of the lerague
and of that the Hamline union con
tributed $71.28, leaving a balance of
$63.64 which came from the town peo
ple mostly from the churches. The lea
gue Is at present in debt $20 for rent,
which will be paid in a very few days
by the Hamline women. Aside from this
the league dosi 'not owe one cent of
money. Since '^.rch the league has
handled about,; 23 cases, out of which
only three of-uthe women have been
known to go tta<_c to their lives. The
home is in ex.fellerit condition, and its
greatest recorflh-— dation is the fact
that those whb fla, Ye" once been in its
shelter are gl&d .to cbme back agailn.
The cash rucking expenses for the
menth average-' labout $35.
Mrs. Root wS» seen last evening, but
had little to s_*y about the matter. She
says that the Ham'llhe union has done
noble work for tjhe league. Beyond
this she would ho* commit herself.
The trouble lit seems began during
the recent district election, and has
been brewing 'among certain of the
members of th. unions ever since. It
seems to be a' "matter of pure jealousy
among a few of the members of the
city unions Mrsr Roots work has been
hard and well done and her
services have be'-n given gratis.
The Somerst union held a large meet
ing yesterday at the home of Mrs.
Teeple, on Central Park Place. Three
packages of papers have been received
from the Church Standard Publishing
company, Cincinnati, as temperance
literature. The Flower mission day will

At a meeting of. voters and business
men who are opposed to the free coin
age of silver held at the chamber of
commerce last evening, the Sound
Money Club of St. Paul was organized
with the avowed intention of literally
carrying the war Into Egypt and com
batting the white metal idea, tooth
and nail, regardless of previous party
The officers of the organization are:
President, Judge C. E. Flandrau; sec
retary, E. H. Ozmun. The following
constitution was adopted:
The name of this organization shall be
the -Sound Money Club of St. Paul, Minne
The object of this club shall be the dis
semination of sound money doctrine without
reference to political party affiliation.
Any voter in the state of Minnesota is
eligible to membership in this club who is
opposed to the free coinage of silver as
enunciated in the financial plank in the
platform adopted July 9, 1896, at Chicago,
111., and who believes in maintaining the
honor and credit of the United States.
The officers of this club shall be a presi
dent, fourteen vice presidents, one from each
ward in the city of St. Paul and three from
the county of Ramsey outside of the city of
St. Paul; a secretary, whose salary shall be
fixed by the executive committee; a treas
urer, and an executive committee consist
ing of seven members, and the president and
secretary of this club shall be ex officio
members of the executive committee. All
of the officers of this club before mentioned
shall be elected by the members of this club
at a regular meeting thereof, except as here
in otherwise provided.
The executive committee shall have charge
generally of the affairs of this club, and
four members thereof shall constitute a
quorum for the transaction of business. It
shall make its ojwn rules and hold meetings
at such time and places as it shall determine,
and a meeting may be called at any time
by Its chairman, and must be called by him
when requested by two members in writing.
This committee shall have power to fill all
vacancies in its own number, or any of the
officers of this club. The executive com
mittee is authorized to adopt such by-laws
for the use of the club as it may deem nec
The regular meetings of this club shall be
held on Tuesday of each week at such place
and time as the executive committee • may
hereafter determine, and general notice in
the newspapers shall be deemed sufficient.
Ten members shall constitute* a quorum for
the transaction of business.
Any voter is eligible ta membership in
this club by signing the constitution.
This constitution may be amended at any
general meeting of this club by a vote of
■ two-thirds of those present.
In order to comply with the provision
of the constitution requiring officers to
administer the affairs of the club in ad
dition to those elected last evening a
special committee, consisting of Thomas
Cochran, Richards Gordon, Gustav
Scholle, Kenneth Clark and Moses E.
Clapp was appointed to select mem
bers of the club for vice presidents in
accordance with the constitution and
to report nominations at the next meet
Whe last night's meting was called
to order it was generally understood
that a sound money organization was
to be perfected. The situation had
been thoroughly discussed at a meeting
held for that purpose a week ago, a
report of which appeared in the Globe,
and so when the supporters of the
movement had taken their seats Sen
ator Ozmun presented a constitution
which had been prepared and moved
its adoption. The document was read,
section by section, when it was unan
imously accepted with a few minor
changes which had been suggested.
Judge Flandrau was then selected pres
ident by acclamation, as was Senator
Ozmun to the office of secretary.
In accepting his office Judge Flan
drau delivered a strong address in sup
port of the object of the club, during
the course of which he stated that to
preserve the honor and credit of the
country it was the duty of every sound
money man to affiliate with the organ
ization and help carry its mission to
a successful fulfillment. Judge Flan
drau said that he was a life long Dem
ocrat and that he had never voted for
a Republican in his life, not even when
his party was disrupted by the nomina
tion of Horace Greeley, but that in the
present crisis he had no other alterna
tive than to repudiate the free silver
doctrine espoused by the Democratic
party and vote for McKinley, the candi
date for sound money, Republican
though he was. This the newly elected
president stated was the course he in
tended to pursue, and he not only
counseled every other true Democrat to
do, but declared It to be the duty of
those concerned in the perpetuity of
national honor and permanence. The
speaker's concluding statement that in
pursuance with his convictions he pro
posed to. do all in his power to dispel
the fallacies of free silver and to di
rect his energies toward aiding in the
election of a sound money candidate
at the coming presidential election was
reeived with the most enthusiastic ap
During a discussion regarding the
club's place of meeting, C J. Berryhill
suggested that if war was to be waged
against the white metal the place to
carry on the fight was among those
who championed it, and that the proper
place In which to conduct the club's
discussions v?aa at Labor hall where
those of opposing belief could attend
the meetings and be brought out into
the light of sound money doctrine. The
suggestion was considered opportune
and one' which, if carried out would
greatly assist In the furtherence of
the alms of the club and a committee
was appointed to secure Labor hall for
