At the mooting of the Dock Doard on Thurs day last there was an interesting dispute be tween President l'ost and Commissioner Cram about the building ot a pier at the toot of Yesey street. Mr. Post warned It built by contract, because the eost would be between 17,000 and 110.000 less than If the employees ot tho de partment did tho work. The dispute between tho two gentlomen waxed hot and was marked by an exchange of sharp expressions. Mr. Cram referred to Mr. Postns an obstructionist, and was angrily callod to order by the Presi dent. The matter was finally laid over until the next meeting .of the Board, on Thursday. Commissioner Phelan took no part In the dis pute, although It was clear that he favored the stand taken by his colleague, Mr. Cram. The law governing the Commissioners makes a unanimous voto necessary beforo any work can be done by the workmen employed by the department, but a majority tote is sufll cldnt to have the tsme work dono by oontract Mr. Post was therefore nblo to foil the designs of Mr. Cram, while the latter cotiM. prevent Mr, Post from having his way, provided he could get Mr. I'holan on his side. ... Out of the dispute and the accusation of Mr. Cram that Mr. l'ot had obstructed the pro ceedings of the department grow the state ment that appeared In an evening paper, yes terday to the effect that ns soon as Mayor Uratit returned to town Mr. Cram nnd 'Mr. l'helan would requost him to remove Mr. Tost. Tito Mnvorhasnot the power to remove Mr. Post, even f he hud iho disposition lo do so. The most he could do would b) to try an ac cused Commissioner and then submit tho result of hie Inve-tlcntlon to llm (Jovernor. who has the cole powerol removal. Mr. Pott referred to the statamont that his removal would be requested bybia collcacuos as " all trash and nonsense." , "This trouble will bo nroperlr judged when the right tlmo comes," he said. "It grew out of n simple difference, of opinion. The general rule of Iho department, as shown by tho min utes, has been to build piers by publlo con tract In order to savo expense. Out of luu Siors built by this department not more than vehave been const moled by tho department's omploytes. Commissioner tram onered a reso lution that tho pier be hutlt by the depart ment, because when work was dona by oon trace thero was delay, and sometlmos the contractor- Involved the department In lltl gntion. Commissioners Cram ami Phelan voted in favor ot this resolution, and I opposed It. I explained, my vote by s.iying that tho plor could bo built by contract for between 150.000 and IM.000. while It would cost the derarttnent J60.000 to build It. I thought, as a representative of the city. I had no right to spend any mora of the publlo money than I would if the tnonov bolongoJ to mo." Commissioner Craue was out ot town, but Commissioner Phelan snld. In regard to the statement that nit effort would be made tn have President l'ot removed, that ho know nothing of It, and didn't bellevo any tuch ellort would ho mude. "Neaily every contract given out br the de partment." he said, "falls Into the hands of a mnn named (Hills, who Is nearly always In trouble with the department. He emplorn tho very poorest class ot labor, and is therefore nblo to bid much lowor than the other con tractors. Tne men In tbo nmploy of the de partment nro good workmen, Hnd are honest, faithful men. I think they should he kept nt work, urovlded the -ity Is not injured. They are now busy building the pier at thnfootof Harrison stroet. This work will soon bo com pleted, and unless tuero is other work for the men to do the employees will hnve to be laid off. and the department will probably lose them for good." ! EIIS OF THE RAILROADS. Now there la War Over Salt Rates Be tweet Michigan and Ohio I.1nea. A fight has broken out among the roads enst of Chicago oor salt rates. It came about through the sharp competition of the salt In terests of Baglnaw Valley and Clei eland, both of which have for a long time been struggling to get control of tho trade of the Chicago pack ers. Formerly Baclnaw VnlU-y enjoied a dif ferential on tbls tramc but for the past six months tho rate has been the same from both points, in spite ot tbls equalization Saginaw salt did not lose its foothold lu Chicago, but it aontluued practically to monopolize the bust-iie-R. On Aug. 14 a meeting of the salt committee nt the Central '1 rathe Ai-soclntloii was held at Toledo, and n propotltinn to reduce the rate was considered. Mo agreement was reached nnd no action taken, but on tho very day of this meeting Cleveland parties sold to Chicago packers about 1U.000 barrels of salt, and on Aug. -4) the Lako Shore quoted a roduced rata ou that commodity from Cleveland to Chicago. Tho new rate Is 11 per ton. or 15 cents a bar rel, a drop ot 5 rents a barrel. Although the Lake Shore compiled with the law In Issu ing its reduced tariir, it did not give the usual tendnyx' notice to Its competitors, and they ure satisfied that it bad promlsod the Cleve land shippers, prior to tbo meeting of Aug. 4, tbat the reduction would be made. The Michigan t'ontraL Chicago and Grand Trunk, and the Flint and i'it.; Marquetto roads havo given notice tbat they will make the same rato.from Baglnaw Valley, Aug. 25. When tbe reports from New York and the West charging the Baltlmoro and Obio with disturbing lbs establibed passenger rates from the Ohio alley to the Atlantio tea board were shown to Mr. Bcull. the general passenger agent of tbat rond, he said: " What probably gave rise to tbe report Is tho fact that an excursion Is being advertised by the B. andO. Southwestern from Cincinnati to Atlantio City at a rate ot one faro for the round trip. The Cbosapeako nud Ohio bos been running similar excursions from Cincin nati to DM Point Comfort, nnd the Krlefrom Clnolnnatl to Chautauqua Lnke. Niagara Falls. Toronto, nnd the Thousand Islands. Tho II. aud O. Bouthwestcrn, believing that It should have tbe same opportunities for sharing In the cheap excursion business that its competitors have taken, aud thero being a popular de mand l.r nn excursion to the Jersey cosst. decided to run an excursion from Cin cinnati to Atlantic City. Its competitors havo no just cause for using tbls action as a pretext lor demoralizing rates in 1 he Wei-tern territory. The I), and . hits no desire either to provoke or engace Inn rate war with any of Its neigh bors. Its Western connection, tbe It. an O. Houtbwestern, Is dependent largely uron Cin cinnati for Its passenger revenue, and it could not reasonably be expected not to give Its Cin cinnati patrons the same opportunities ot reaching the popular summor resorts thut are accorded by Its competitors." The Chloaao. flt Paul. Minneapolis and Omaha road tins escapod tho payment of a flue by aopenliug from 11 dedslon of Chairman Flnley ot the Western Passenger Association. The company was accused by tbe Bt. Paul road of doing a brokerage business by selling tickets at cut rates. Chairman Flnley decided that the charge was smtlaiqntly woll founded to warrant the Infliction of the usual penalty, but an appeal to arbitration has resulted In a reteraal of this decision.

It is a matter of no llttlo disaprolotnient to the Stock Kxcbange boars tbat tbelr peisls tent efforts to force a reaction In tirlces meet with so llttlo encouranement elsewltero.

Chicago bns its bands full to keoii track of the fluctuations In the cialn ranrket. hence the trndlnit from that point has not been important, but that Is only u temporary matter, and Cuicaeo operators may be expected later on to forward tbe work which they have so successfully begun. Trausaotlons In stocks bate been small in comparison nltb tbe few preceding days. Bomo misgivings are felt because of the dulness without considering that wo are in tbo very heat ol summon and that tbe large operators have not jet returned to the city. Thero are many who bollevo that it tbe market can be held even, the lenewnlof aotlvity on tbe bull side Is but a question of tbelr return nnd of cooler weather. As It is Ihore is a gradual im provement In the list, nsaglanco at the quota tions of a week ago will show. It tbe bond list Is studied a still giealer Improvement will be found, nnd to this feature greut Importance is attached as a matter of course. The market for railway shares has unques tionably been narrow to-day. Atchison stock and income bonds wero tbe more active, tbe transactions in tbe first corned being over 23, 000 bhares, at u not advance over lust night of i V cent. Bt, 1'nul was next In point of ac tivity, at a net advance of .- 7 cent. Tbo largest gain, however, was in Northern Faclflo pteferred, which scored an advance of l.V cent, on transaction ot 10,000 shares, and Louisville and Nashville, an advance ot S ? com. on much smaller trading, but with hardly )? Interest shown in its movements. Con cerning bolb tho Northern Tactile, Louisville and Atchison Companies tbe activity is n logi cal result of more favorable earnings. But by lar the most prominent foalure In the day's speculation has been the " Industrials." Amer ican Itellnlng was hardly less active than on the tno preceding days, although the net advance since last night's closing . was liut'l.'i V cent. Tho reppria of the sdiusiment ot differences between tbe Bugar Trust and tbe Philadelphia rtOnery have bad more ol a semblance of truth from the fact.that tne officers of both corporations refuse to either afflrra or deny them.
