THE VOTE IS CANVASSED
Majorities in the Cases of IMayor and Polioe Judge Slightly Changed. None of the Alterations Were Suffoient to Effeot the Results. The Couninell Divides on the Sprinkling Contract and the Mayor Casts the Declding Vote. There was a bare quorum at least night's meeting of the city council, when the offi cial returns of Monday's election were can vassed. Those present were Aldermen Lissner, Post, Howell, Fuller, Reece, 1Han ley, Walker and Wieber. The returns were all in the hands of the city clerk, and Mayor Curtin appointed Aldermen Hanley and Fuller to canvass them. Some of the figures were different from those fuinlshed after the polls closed, but none of the mis takes were sufieilent to change the result, either on the general ticket or on alder manic candidates. Mayor Curtin was found to have twenty votes less in the fourth precinct than was leiven him by the unofficial returns, while Richard Lookey had one more there. R. G. Davies Lot seven more votes in the eleventh pre cinct than published yesterday. The totals on mayoralty candidates were, therefore: Curtln 1,701), Lookey 1,121, Davies 268; Curtin's plurality 488; Cnrtin'e ma jority over all 220. The vote on city treasurer was exactly as reported, giv ing C. 3. Garrett 276 plurality over T. 1. Miller. By an error in calling off the seventh precinct returns Monday night T. E. Crotoher, for police magistrate, was i given seventy-three and C. W. Fleisoher ninety-one. It should have been jast the reverse. The official count corrected this. It also added one vote to H. M. Beadle in the first precinct, and took one off in the I third and ten off in the fourth. The cor rected vote is: Crutcher 1,828, Fleisoher 1171, Beadle 454; Crntcher's plurality 157. On the aldermanic ticket Wm. Fenn, populist, gained one in the second precinct. The votes for Herman Richter and E. L. Flaherty in the third precinct were reversed and some smaller mistakes made, which re duces Flaherty's majority from fifty-eight to thirty-nine. J. M. Peterson gained a vote in the sixth precinct, reducing T. P. Fuller's plurality to thirty-six. The city clerk was authorized to issue certificates to those shown by the official returns to have been elected. The new ad ministration will start in Tuesday, April 25. It was not noticed, until Alderman Howell called attention to it, that no election had been ordered for the second ward vacancy caused by Alderman Jackson's resignation. As the term is nearly out, however, the new alderman, had any beeno hosen, would have had only one special and one regular meet ing to attend. The contract which the city makes every year with F. W. Ellis for sprinkling the streets caused the members present to di vide even and called for a deciding vote by Mayor Curtin. The contract was the same as that of last year, except that in addition to Helena avenue and the streets around the auditorium, Fuller avenue was named as one of the thoroughfares to be sprinkled at public expense when or dered by the council. The other esrinkling is paid for by the people along Main street and Broadway. Alder man Lissner wanted to include West Main street, from which place, he said, most of the dust came that was blown into Main street. Mayor Curtin remarked that the city would not be in a position to do much sprinkling at publio expense this year. Alderman Wieber moved to have the con tract amended by striking out all the streets sprinkled by the city, so as to have none of it done at public expense. Alderman Liss ner moved to lay that motion on the table. The vote on this was yeas four-Lissner, Post, Fuller and Heanley; nays four-How. ell. Reece, Walker and Wieber. Mayor Curtin voted no, defeating the motion. Alderman Wieber's motion was adopted by the mayor voting aye when the aldermen divided on the same lines as before. Alderman Hanley moved to refer the contract, as amended, to the committee on judiciary, the idea being to defer final action until there should be a larger at tendance. Alderman Howell moved to lay this motion on the table; carried by yeas five, nays three, Alderman Fuller getting to the other side this time. Later on a mo tion by Alderman Wlobor to adopt the con tract as amended resulted in the following vote: Yeas four-Howell, Ieece, Walker, and Wieber; nays fou.-Lissner, Post. Fuller and Hanley. Mayor Curtin voted aye and the motion was carried. Then Aldermen Fuller and Hanley changed their votes and gave notice that at the next meet ing they would move a reconsideration. Alderman Lissner raised the point of order that no quorum had voted in favor of the motion. Alderman Fuller took the view that the action of the council was illegal, the charter providing that no contract shall be made except by a majority of the coun cil. This point will very likely come up at the next meeting. At the suggestion of Alderman Howell ordinances were passed transferring $5,000 trom the fire fund and $183.20 from the sewer fund, both to the general fund, and lhe city treasurer was directed to call for $7,(000 general fund warrants. The trans fer exhausts the sewer fund. It wai the general opinion that the sewer fund was no luonger necessin:y. The ordinance commit tee was directed to dreaft an ordinance uloliahiug it, ali all sewerage Isaymenrts will then be muds from the general fund. 'hey Prefer the Editor. ArnBUQUErQ rU, N.

Luther Foster, acting president of the Montana Agricultural college, of Bose man, has just l ssned a circular in regard to admission and atndies to be pursued. The last legislative assembly passed an act creating the Montana Agricultural col lege and providing for its location at th e city of Bozeman. In compliance with the provisions j that act, the state board of edncation^r1lected a site for the permanent location of the institution and authorized its executive board to open a preliminary term of school for the organization of the college and preparatory to the beginning of the regular college year in September. By the congressional act under which MontAna became a state the agricultural college re ceives as a perpetual endowment 140,000 acres of land. In addition to this land grant, under an act of congress approved Aug. 80, 1890, the institution is entitled to an appro riation from the United States treasury of 18,000 for the year ending June 80, 1898, 19,000 for 1894, $20,000 for 189& and a sum increasing each year by $1,000 until the annual amount from this source reaches $25,000. The government agricultural ex periment station connected with the college receives for its maintenance an annual ap propriation of $15,000 distinct from the in come mentioned above. The institution now possesses a farm of 180 acres adjoining the city-a gift from the citizens of Boze man and county. Concerning admission and course of study, President Foster says: "Applicants for admission must be at least 14 years of age. and possess a sufficient common school education to enable them to pursue creditably the work undertaken. All departments are open to both sexes. Candidates for admission to the college course at the beginning of the coming year will be required to pass a satisfactory ex amination in reading, spelling, writing, ar ithmetic. geography, English grammar, United htates history, and algebra to sim ple equations. In the interests of those who desire to prepare for the college work, classes will be formed in all branches named above during the opening term. In addition to the regular preparatory studies, a special business course is offered in shorthand, type-writing, book keeping, commercial law and penmanship. Tuition is free in preparatory and college classes, but an entrance fee of $2 is charged to cover incidental expenses. A fee of $10 is required of those who pursue the busi ness course. This will permit the student to take all of the course that he can credit ably carry. "Through the courtesy of the city school board, the college will ocenupy quarters temporally in the Bozeman high school building. 'Ihe announcement of the courses of study, calendar and other in formation relative to the work of the com int year will be ready for distribution by the first of July." A DECIDED SUCCESS. The Entertalnment Given Last Night at 1 the Afro-Amerlean Church. The Afro-American Methodist church, Hoback and Fifth avenue, was crowded last night to witness an entertainment given for the benefit of the church. The opening exercise was the "Marriage of Tom Thumb," in which ten little people, taste fully arrayed in spiked tailed coats and gowns participated. The Episcopal cere mony was performed by little Duke Do trieulle, the popular mascot, the bride and bridegroom being little midgets, Alice Woodcock and Georgie Watson, aged five years. The bridesmaids and "best men" were also of tender age. The ceremony took on 'all the features of a midget wed ding and was very enjoyable. This was followed by a musical pro gramme consisting of an echo song y a chorns of voices, an instrumental piece splendidly rendered by Miss Effle Scott, a sweet song by Miss Clara Crump. who was heartily encored, several enjoyable quar tettes, including one by the little boys en titled, "I'm a Dandy, But no Dude." A handsome tableau representing the ten vir- ( gins was presented. As the smoke of the red fire diffused itself throughout the room I all regretted that some of the virgins had neglected to get their lamps filled before the entertainment began. With renewed ventilation the programme was carried out. Miss Burnett rendered an instrumental solo. Then ten little girls bearing dolls sang "Bylo Land" so sweetly as to invite an enthuaiastio encore. Clara Clump. Eltle Scott, Gladdis Alexander and Edith Milling also sang. The hit of the evening was "T''a-ra-a-r Boom-der-a," by Masters Mason and Johnson, in which the city eletlion came in for a share of fun to the soul stirring tune. A tableau representing the four seasons followed. Miss Gladdis Alex ander was repeatedly encored, carrying the audience by storm. "The Pardon Came Too Late" was rendered by Miss Efile Scott and Gladdis Alexander. After "Good Night," refreshments were served, Much credit is due Mrs. Alexander. Mrs. Fnlker son. Miss Bruce and Mrs. Lea for the soc cess of the entertainment. 'The Lake Front Case. WASaIINoroe, April 4.-Suggestions in opposition to the motion for mandates to carry into execution the judgment of the court in the matter of the Chicago lake front controversy were presented in the supreme court of the United Status to-day by Bristow and Choate, together with Clarence A. -eward and the Illinois Con tral railroad, in addition to Messrs.
