The college chapel at Augustana
was crowded to overflowing this
morning, the occasion being the an
nual commencement day exercises of
the theological seminary. The dee
orations were particularly attractive
and appropriate. Over the door was
draped the American flag, while on
either side of the platform in the
east end of the room were the flags
of America and Sweden, an immense

Last night's meeting of the city
council witnessed the transaction of
considerable business left over from
the last meeting. L. E. Gaylord's
bill for improvement on Fourteenth
avenue was left with the mayor and
city clerk, who will make a partial
settlement on what has been paid
into the city by property holders
there. The committee on the new
flouring mill project asked further
time in which to investigate in re
gard to it. Imjxirtaiit action was
also taken in regard to looking after
the floods that come down on Moline
avenue from Twenty-seventh street
during heavy rains. It is proposed
to put in a storm drain that will
carry oil the surplus water, which is
turned into that street from other
water courses in the vicinity.

provide for the other payments as
they become due held a meeting,
which was attended by nearly all of
such note signers, at the rooms of the
Citizens' Improvement association
last evening. The purpose of the
meeting was to discuss the situation

Then came the address by Bishop
von Sciieele 1. 1'. Th. P.. in which
1 lie dist inguished prelate spoke in
the Swedish language in defense of
Christianity, theoretically and prac
tically. Christianity, the bishop
held, consists 1 hoorei ie:ill in prep
aration for church work tir.-t of all.
Theological student - should have a
t rue conception of CI; : i st iani i y and all
that it means and implies. Chris
tianity should permeate all the other
sciences, for all the learning of our
day is a great factor in church work.
It is important, therefore, that the
minister going forth to preach and
to teach should be thoroughly edu
cated ill all the sciences. 11c spoke
briefly on the siibj.-el of religious
con tro veries. They should lie held.
In- carried on in a dignilicd manner
and the church should waste no iow-
der ill ill feiise of its doctrines in 1 1 rfc-fiC'1
face of enemies who arc insincere in
their po-i t inns and whose at tacks are
too trivial to de-erc answer or at
tention. In a practical sense the
minister should devote him-elf to
historical research. History has
been hostile to the church because it
records its shortcomings. The
church should profit by the history
of the past by so contl net ing itself
that history may say nothing unfav
orable of its course. He dwtdt at
some length on the requisites of Un
practical ministry and what should
compose it. The bishop is explicit
and figurative in his manner of
speaking, and is eloquent and pictur
esque in his delivery.
Following the bishop's address
came a song by the Ambrose quar
tette an address by Rev. C.J. Petri
A. M.. a song by the chorus, an ad

'condition of alTairs that confronted

and at times somewhat animated dis-
sion. which culminated in i lie

by J. F. Robinson :

There was something akin to a sen
sat ion produced when the communi
cation from J. N. lliintoon was read
asking for the payment of ;?40,i on his ; lr
contract. At this juncture Aid. Ev-j

it was iet.J I have iieen a menmer
here nearly six years and I don't re
member of any such contract being
let by t his council.'" Aid. Kennedy
explained that it had been let like
other ones on Fourteenth avenue for
instance, but the ablerman from the
Fifth said he knew all about those
other ones but here was one that was
different. Mayor Medill remarked
t,TrtS&i.v.jn copies of the con
tract and thaTu: was on tile in t In-
city clerk's office. Aid. Evans asked
to have it brought cut. He wanted
to get at the bottom of it. he saidfl
and find out how and why it was let
without others being given a chance
to bid on th-e work. Remember I
don't want to charge anyone with do
ing anything wrong." continued Aid.

Contract and read it. It bears date
of April IS. and is for making the cut
on several side streets in connection
with the fourth avenue pavement
The price in the contract is -J4 cents
per cubic vard, the cut to be hauled
six blocks at that price, but if the
haul is longer 3 cents per cubic vard
additional is to be charged. The
contract is in ex-Mayor McConot-hie s
writing and is signed by that gentle
man and attested by Kobert Koehler,

At the conclusion of its reading,
the Fifth ward alderman reiteratetl
his statement that he was inquest of
information as to how that contract
was let. Aid. Kennedy replied that
it was in pursuance of a resolution
of the city council to have certain
ietfts made. Upon reference to that,
however, it was found that such res
olution was only for a cut on Fourth
street ami did not apply in anyway
to the other work named in the eon
tract. Mr. Iluntoon spoke in his
own behalf. He said he accepted the
contract and did the work in good
faith and wanted his money. Aid.
Corken was like Aid. Evans; he
wasn't at all satisfied with' that way
of doing business, he wanted it
known. Aid. Bladel also explained
that the contract was all right, but
it didn't seem to satisfy some of the
members, and after several motions
and amendments had been made, a
substitute showing that the council
