ALD. RYAN MISSES HIS CHANCE But PromUen to Bring; Ip 'Hi» Street Commissioner i' lit Later. The new city council contented Itself with the consideration of routine busi ness alone at its first session last night. Alderman Ryan of the first ward was pre pared to make his street commissioner fight and intended to spring the neces sary motion to bring it on, but it was his first legislative experience, and while groping about for an opening, the coun cil adjourned and left him high and dry. He insists, however, that it does not make any difference, as the twenty votes that he has In eight will all keep. Building Inspector ; Houghton submitted his list of office appointments for con firmation. The list included all his pres ent force. City Engineer Sublette re appointed Ellis R. Dutton as first as sistant. He fills the ; other positions in his office without the formal assistance of the council. City Assessor Fort retains W. B. Jones as first assistant, and City Controller Rogers reappointed C. F. E. Peterson his deputy. City Attorney Healy reappointed L, A. Dunn and W. H. Morse first and second assistants respectively, and E* F. Waite third assistant. All the appoint ments were confirmed. Chief Canter bury's list will be presented at the next meeting of the council. The matter of erecting bathhouses at Lake Calhoun was called up by Alderman McCune, and referred to the committee on public grounds and buildings with in structions to report as soon as possible, as it is desired to have the new bath houses in operation this season. The following bids were received for rubber hose for the use of the fire de partment: Revere Rubber company, 8,000 feet of two and one-half-inch hose, $1 per foot; 1,000 feet of chemical three-fourths-inch hose, 27 cents a foot; 1,000 feet of one inch hose, 32 cents. Tate & Co. (in the same quantities) two and one-half-inch, $1.10; one-inch, 45 cents; three-fourths-inch, 40 cents. W. S. Nott & Co., two and one-half-inch $1; one-inch, 30 cents; three-fourths-inch' 25 cents. Bowers Rubber company, two and one half-inch, 95 cents; one-inch, 33 cents three-fourths-inch, 22 cents. Charles E. Sanford & Co.,' two and one half-inch, $1.10; one-inch, 38 cents- three fourths-inch, 32 cents. New Jersey Car Spring and Rubber com pany; Two and one-half-inch $1- one inch, 38 cents; three-fourtbs-inc'h 32 cents. WAMTS AX EARJ,V START The City RigtaMi I» Forehanded With I'arliiK Pl«n». Paving operations were begun very late in the season last year, and it was" close jto freezing U p time before the last of the : paving order? was furnished. The city ; engineer's department was handicapped I badly throughout the season by the late start, and the assessment rolls on prop erty abutting part of the new paving had to be made up on the engineer's estimates instead of from the figures of the actuai cost, resulting in some confusion City Engineer Sublette realizes that it isn't . the ideal way of doing business and will | seek this year to get the paving work I started in good season. He has already gone over the city thoroughly and se lected the places where paving is most imperatively needed, as follows: Third avenue S, from Fifth street to Ninth street: Sixth avenue S, from Washington avenue to Third street; Tenth avenue S, from Washington avenue 10 Third street- First avenue X. from Fifth street to Seventh street; Third avenue N, from Sixth street to heveuth street: Sixth street N, from Henne pm avenue to Third avenue X; Second aveuue X. from Fifth street to Seventh street- Uni versity avenue SE. from Fifth street to the railway bridge: High street, from Bridge square to First avenue S; Main street NX from Central avenue to Fourth avenue- Maiii street SE, from Third avenue to Sixth ave nue: Washington avenue S, from Twelfth avenue to Cedar avenue; Tenth street, from Fir* avenue S to Chicago avenue; lockup alley, from Washington aveuue to Second street. Then the Xorth Side aldermen will in sist upon the paving of Washington ave nue N from Third to Fifth avenues Twen ty-second to Twenty-sixth avenues and fourteenth to Twentieth avenues' and Twentieth avenue N from the river to L-yndale avenue. It is probable however that they will consent to allow part of this work to go over another year. lt all the above Paving should be done this year it would require some $85 000 or $90,000 lo meet the city's share of the ex pense, wbereas there will be not to ex ceed $40,000 for this purpose. This means in effect, that the above list will have to be cut right in two. The city engineer will urge that all tne paving recommended for the district about the Central market be laid this year without fail, and that the paring down be done elsewhere in the list. In the department of sewere the city engineer urges the prime necessity of re lief for the Kenwood district, sections of the third and tenth wards, Emerson ave nue S and the parts of the eighth and thirteenth wards lying south of Thirty fourth street. The North Side situation can be met by the extension of the Fifth street sewer from Eleventh avenue to Plymouth avenue, and the sewer on Twenty-sixth avenue N from its present terminus to the river. The city engineer recommends the use of stone crosswalks in place of wooden, and the boulevarding of residence streets by decreasing the width of the roadway. The total expenditures in his depart ment for the year were $763,255, while the cost of administering the department was only $29,512. In other words, of the en tire outlay only 3.86 per cent thereof was expended in operating the department. In 1899 the cost of administration of the de partment was 4.85 per cent of the total ex pnediture and in 1898, 4.8 per cent. THE WEATHER The Predictions.

Minnesota was defeated by Michigan last evening, and is out of the race this year. It was Michigan that worsted Minnesota last year, but not until after Minnesota had won the preliminary with Northwest ern. The debate was at Ann Arbor, and tha Wolverines had the advantage of the aud ience, of course, but Minnesota was saved the sting of a unanimous decision. The vote stood two to one, and Professor Trueblood,. of Michigan, said it was, in his opinion, the beat and closest debate Michigan had ever taken part in, and was ahead of the contest of last year. Michigan excelled in team work and in debate, and the decision was generally ex pected, the Minnesota men admitting that they were excelled. The question discussed was: "Resolved, That, it is unwise for the states to attempt to tax personal property." The affirma tive was taken by Messrs. Maxey, Sonnen schein and Jacob of Michigan, and the negative was supported by Messrs. Lende, James and Mclntyre, of Minnesota. The judges were Harry A. Garfleld, of Cleveland, a son of President Garfleld; Thomas H. Tracey, of Toledo, Ohio, and David Rosser, of Chicago. In the absence of Governor Bliss, President Angell pre sided. He paid tribute to the late Sena tor Davis aa a graduate of Michigan and a Minnesota statesman. RULING AGAINST MIXING IMPORTANT TO GRAIN DEALERS Chicago Grades Will Stiffen and Lo cal Shippers Will Have to Be Careful. A decision of interest to local grain men has been filed in the district court of Illi nois by Judge Tuley. It declares the Illi nois act of 1897, permitting warehousemen to mix their own grain with that of their customers and then deal in this grain, un constitutional and against public policy. The decision was in the Central Elevator case, in which evidence was produced showing the practice of "mixing" to be very prevalent. In passing on the question Judge Tuley said that public warehouses had come to be such an important factor in the interstate commerce of the country that it was only a question of time before congress would be asked to »ass general laws regulating them as part of the inter state commerce system. While "mixing" is practiced by nearly all elevators, it is claimed on 'change that wheat stored for private parties is always kept intact in separate bins. "Mixing" proper is a combination of good No. 2, for example, with enough No. 1 in it to bring the whole uj> to No. 1 standard. There is no law against this, either in Minnesota or Illinois. In this way, therefore, the decision does not affect local dealers. In another way it does. "That decision will have a tendency," said a well-known grain man to-day, '"to stiffen grades in Chicago. That will make it necessary for local shippers, when exigencies cause them to send grain to Chicago, to be a little more careful about its grading. Our grades are usually fully as stiff here as at Chicago, and we prefer to have all the stiffening done here, not in Chicago. It is not too much to say that that decision may stiffen grades so that local shippers will be very cautious about mixing for the Chicago market." THE LIBRARY ANNUAL Directors Waive the Charter and Hold an Election. The annual meeting of the library board was held yesterday afternoon. Mayor Ames and Miss L. M. Crafts, the new members of the board, were present. When the time came for ihe election of of ficers quite a discussion arose. The library charter provides that the annual election shall take .olace in April; accord ing to custom of several years' standing it has been held in January. Director Cyrus Northrop maintained that the elec tion should be postopned until the time set by the charter. Director Carleton said that if the election took place in April the newly elected president's term as director might expire before his term of office as president was up. He moved that the elec tion should take place at once, which mo tion prevailed. It developed during the discussion that no election was_i^ld last year and that the officers had simpiy held over. President T. B. Walker and Secre tary Daniel Fish were re-elected. Librarian' James K. Hosmer said in his annual report that the expenses in 1900 had been less than they were in 1899. Dur ing the year there had been expended by the city and the Athanaeum $12,435.58 for books and periodicals; 8,230 volumes were added to the library collection, 675 of which were to : replace worn out and lost books. The statistics of the circulation department showed a total issue of 535,773, of which number 248,128 was from the library proper, 262,972 from branches and stations, and 24,673 from schools and mis sions. As the entire circulation of 1899 was 596,000, there was a falling off for 1900 of 60,227, This decrease had been in most part at the branches and stations. Dr. Hosmer accounted for this by stating that the branches had not been, open in the forenoon and the year 1900 , having been more prosperous than previous ones people had less time for reading. . Superintendent of Buildings .. Louis Runge asked that the matter of cutting down the expenses of his department, which had been determined upon at the last monthly meeting, be referred to the committee on building. Mr. Runge was of the opinion that a cut in the salary of the janitor would work a hardship at this season of the year. The matter was refer red to the committee. : •.. • :. The salary of Miss Mary Ayera was raised from $40 per month to $45. :■> • L 0 DIGS LIGNITE" Fuel Purveying 1m Paylns Better Than Scalp Lifting.

The location of the vein is about half way between Ft. Yates and Cannon Ball on the Missouri river. This country has been forced to haul its fuel for 40 miles and the Indians will consequently be able to dispense of all they can mine at a good price. For a Cold in the Head.

FRIEND OF AGASSIZ County Attorney Boardman's Father a Distinguished Naturalist. HIS LONG LIFE ENDS IN MAINE Though «, Successful Bailaeci Man HU. Private Natural History Collection Wan Notable. George A. Boardman, one of the most learned naturalists in the ; United States, •died : yesterday ' morning at his old home in Calais/ Me., at the advanced age of 83 years. He was the father of County At torney Fred H. Boardman and W. B, Boardman of this city, and A. J. Board man, now of Philadelphia, but formerly a prominent Minneapolitan. The deceased had been a successful business man and was interested in banks, lumbering and other Industries, as well as in shipping. He retired from the active affairs with a competence in 1870 to occupy himself with his favorite studies and public matters. His natural '-, history museum is conceded to be the finest and largest private col lection in America. In the zoological col lection alone there are 2,500 specimens mounted and in skin, with the young and eggs of most of them. Not only was he a student and naturalist, but a keen sports man as well, for he was a famous and enthusiastic \ angler in the lakes, streams and salt water estuaries of eastern Maine. Charles Hallock, a writer in Forest and Stream, says of Mr. Boardman that he seemed to be one of those elect whose lives have been graciously prolonged be cause of their usefulness to men. Mr. Hallock says: ■ Recognized for three-quarters a century as a keen, discriminating naturalist, and pos sessing the' most complete private museum of natural history extant, he is now in his 82d year as painstaking as ever in his investiga tions, devoting himself with energy almost unimpaired by time to his favorite pursuit and study. . Now it happens that students and scientists who have become eminent in their profession are usually so segregated and intent on their transcendtal pursuits that they often fall to become , conspicuous among the world's honor men; and hundreds of such are en rolled on the unpublished books of the im mortals whom the public never heard of, simply because they occupy a superlatively higher - plane. ~ These have no time to ex ploit their achievements. Such a man, I may be permitted to say., is George A. Boardman of Calais, Me., an ornithologist of highest re pute among scientists, a contemporary and whilom associate and co-worker with Audo bon, Agas&lz, Downs, Todd, Baird and Beth une, those studious observers of natural ob jects whose renown lingers after their de parture like the afterglow of a midsummer sunset. It is understood that the famous muse um will go to Bowdoin college. MORE ROOM NEEDED Methodist Revival Meetings Trans- Iferred to Wesley Church. The Hunter-Crossley evangelistic servi ces are nightly growing in interest. At the meeting last night the auditorium of the Hennepin Avenue M. E. church was so much over-crowded that it became neces sary to announce that services would be held in the Wesley M. B. church from to morrow night. To-morrow forenoon Dr. Hunter will preach in the Bloomington Avenue M. E. church and Dr. Crossley in the Forest Heights M. E. church. In the afternoon at 2:30 the evangelists will attend the Ballington Booth meeting at the Century hall. At 4 o'clock, together with Bishop Joyce, they will conduct the services at the Crossley-Hunter Mission in Swedish Temple. At the later service there will only be admission for those holding tickets up till five minutes of 4, at which latter time, if there is any avail able room in the church others will be ad mitted. In the evening the evangelists *ill conduct revival services at Wesley M. SB. church. During the week there will be revival services at the latter church every night except Saturday, the song service com mencing at 7:30. Doors will open at 7. 'TWILL BE ILLUSTRATED Winston Spencer Churchill's Lecture at the Lycenm. A telegram received this morning by the Teachers' club from Maj. J. B. Pond, the American manager of Winston Churchill, announces that the lecture Friday even ing, January 18, at the Lyceum will be illustrated by 100 stereopticon views made from photographs taken by Mr. Churchill in South Africa. This will aid very great ly to the interest in his lecture on "The Boer War as I Saw it," as this view of the war is but little known to the public, even to those familiar with the many bril liant word pictures painted. Mr. Churchill delivered the first of sev eral lectures in Chicago Thursday night to a crowded house which cheered the lec turer with great enthusiasm, also the pic tures according to their British or pro- Boer tendencies, for both gidies in the war were impartially represented. THEY MUST GO Slot Machines That Pay Money Are Closed Up. The proprietors of the saloons about town who began operating the nickel-in theelot : machines a few weeks ago, have been notified by Chief Ames that further gambling with these machines must cease.

The small, harmless cigar ma chines are not under the ban. But ail gambling machines that pay money must g". ;: NOT SO ROMANTIC Swanson Tried Suicide and Goes to the Workhouse.
