Aldermen Favor Livingston — Fire
Chief Canterbury and Captain Livingston, of
the Camden Place' engine company, had a
little- falling out recently, which ended with
the reduction of the latter to the grade of
pipeman. It was charged against him that

beautiful dancing pavilion will be erected and
an interesting concert in Irish jig, reel and
hornpipe dances between two experts will
prove a very attractive feature, as the cham

By the Size of the Throng- at Harriet
Last Night.
All records were shattered into frag
ments by the size of the throng at Lake
Harriet last night. The cars on all the
lines running to the lake were laden with
pleasure-seekers, who were experiencing
the first cool moments of the day as the
trolley-made breezes fanned them into
comfortable languor. Then at the lake
there were the added delights of a fine
program beautifully rendered by Sorren
tlno and his red-clad men. The leader's
own compositions, three of them, formed
a welcome feature of the program, and
all were received with flattering enthu
siasm. The playing of "The Holy City,"
by Signor Bottega with his facile trum
pet, was another popular hit. To-night
Signor Barilotti will give the famous
composition, "The Palms," on his bary
tone horn. Another popular number will
be the selection from Leoncavallo's mas
terly modern opera, "I' Pagliacci." The
quartet from "Rigoletta," one of Verdi's
masterpieces, will, no doubt, prove a fine
thing. The program for to-night is as
March, "General Shafter" Heed
Overture from "William Tell" Rossini
"The Palms" Faure
Solo barytone by Signor Barilotti.

Local Dealers, Therefore, Are Tiot
Afraid of the Trust.
Large handlers of salt do not think that
the successful floating of the proposed salt
trust will materially affect prices. They
say that the combination of a year ago
has put the price for the northwest, at
least, at the top notch. The plan of the
promoters of the new combination, it is
said, is to include all Michigan wels. The
Michigan people have been the main dis
tributers, it is claimed. Lumbermen
have found it profitable to engage in the
salt traffic as a side line, and the trust
seeks to retire this competition. North
western formers and cattlemen are paying
more for their salt than they have for
years. The present price is supposed to
make big dividends possible. Local deal
ers are not buying heavily in expectation
of an advance.
Over 100 of the IG7 Applicants Get
Through Exams O. K.
Building Inspector Houghton this morn
ing finished the examination of papers
submitted by applicants for licenses to run
passenger elevators, and announced that
106 of the 167 taking the examinations had
passed. An average of 70 per cent was re
. quired to pass. Several in the list were
given a mark of 100. One fell as low as
three. The men who failed will be given
another chance July 6 and none of them

Doesn't Like Ramsey G. J.'b Action
on Johnson,
Governor Van Sant returned 7 from
I Winona this morning, rather ruffled by
the action of - the Ramsey county; grand
jury, which threw the responsibility of
proceeding against County Auditor John- |

fellow, why didn't they indict him?" was
the only comment the governor would

But One Hotter June Day
Was Ever Known
Heat Prostrations Reported
—Ice and Water Deal
ers Rushed.
Theodore Kruger, fireman, Nelson Paper
Works, Fourth avenue NE end Main
street, taken to city hospital.
J. W. Arbuckle, proprietor of a lower
Hennepin avenue hotel, overcome at
Washington and Hennepin avenues; taken
to city hospital.
Man prostrated First avenue N and
Washington, cared for by friends.
Matz Gratz, employed on the Wisconsin
Central improvements at Fifth street N,
was prostrated by the heat a little before
6 o'clock last night end was taken to the
city hospital. This was the only case of
heat prostrations reported yesterday.
The government thermometer at 6
o'clock yesterday morning registered 76,
at 7 the same as Tuesday morning, which
was 78. At 9 o'clock it was 85; at 12, 91;
and at 3, 95. This record was 1 degree
worse than yesterday, which was 94.
Yesterday was within one degree of the
highest temperature for June on record.
June 13, 1897, the mercury reached 96.
The breath of the south wind is much
more furnace-like than Tuesday. The
sun thermometer on top of the federal
building this afternoon registered 103.
Director Outram in his daily report is
sued yesterday said:
High temperature prevails over the Min
neapolis district, 90 degrees or higher being
recorded yesterday over the southern por
tions and into the upper Red River valley;
Crookston reports 1.22 inches rainfall; Moor
head, 0.20; Langdon, 0.69, and Lisbon, 0.22.
Vincennes, Ind., reports 1.54 inches rainfall;
Battle Creek, Mich., 1.74; Granvllle, Ohio,
1.50; Pomeroy, Ohio, 1.70 inches.
Hot weather opened firm yesterday
and a steady advance was noted by the
ticker up to closing time. Yesterday the
market touched 94, the nearest par It
had reached this year. A slight slump
was noticed at the close of business yes
terday, but the recovery was sharp this
morning. The behaviour of the market
is attributed to the fact that everybody
is "long" on this particular stock.
Water and Ice Folk Busy.
The water companies are on the jump
to keep up with the demand for spring
water. Each of, the companies keeps a
supply wagon doing nothing but answering
second calls. One of the spring water
companies stated this morning that the
demand to-day was fiv^ times greater
than the average. The telephone girls in
these offices are doing nothing but en
deavoring to appease the wrath of cus
tomers who want to know why that water
man doesn't come around.
The ice man is warm because the de
mand for the congealed stuff is abnormal,
yet he is not making anything out of it.
One of them said: "Yes, the de
mand is great, but we are not getting
rich out of it. We have to supply the
families who are under contract just the
same as any cool day, and get no more
for it"
lee Cream Is Short.
A peculiar result of the hot weather of
the last two days is the possibility of an
ice cream famine. The demand has ex
hausted the supply of sweet cream and
more is called for than can be supplied.
The ice cream companies report that
everyone wants ice cream to-day; not
only the soda fountains are after it, but
the family trade is enormous.
The electric fan men and the companies
which furnish the power are smiling these
days. About the only thing that will take
a fall out of a hot south wind single
handed to-day is the electric, fan. The
street car stands next as a heat dispeller.
Parties of persons, young and old, board
the open cars for the simple purpose of
getting away from the heat of the day no
matter what it may cost.
Last night Lake Harriet was well pat
ronized and the root beer trees were de
prived of every drop of sap. A pleasant
breeze was stirring. Every boat belong
ing to the park board was out at once last
evening, and a line wae waiting to seize
the boats as rapidly as they were landed.
Horses suffered a great deal to-day from
the heat reflected by the pavements. The
use of horse hats has become more gen
eral, and to-day many a faithful kuight of
the harness wore a cap-sheaf of straw.
The .Temperature Suggests Propri
ety of Shirt-Waists for Them.
The mayor had a surprise in store this
morning. He said he had examined the
mail carriers' shirt waists recommended
by the general government, and had found
them perennial joys if not things of
"We must all come to sensible cloth
ing," said his honor, mopping the per
spiration from his brow. "Light clothing
in summer is healthful, sensible, and de
sirable from every point of view. We are
as backward as the Chinese in some
things, and dress reform seems to be one
of them. I hope to see all military and
civic uniforms designed with some re
gard for the climate. The carriers' grey
ish-blue shirts are comfortable, and there
is no reason in the world why police offi
cers should not wear something like them
during the hot days of summer. The
necessity for such a radical departure
from the established garb of patrolmen
is not so apparent in this climate, where
we rarely have more than twenty real hot
days in a season. But in cities like Mew
York, Chicago and St. Louis there is a
'crying reform for light clothing. We may
inaugurate something of the kind here
next season, and about the only require
ment would be that whatever clothing
was adopted for the summer months
should be uniform in color, weight and
It Takes Effect Monday—Policies
Must Show Whether Assess
ment or Old Line.
After July 1 all life insurance policies
issued in Minnesota will have to bear on
their face a stamp or inscription Indicat
ing the character of the insurance—
whether "old line," "stipulated premium"
or "assessment." The printed bill, by an
omission of quotation marks, reads "old
line assessment plan." which means noth
ing. Attorney General Douglas has de
cided, however, that the court will read
the quotation marks in, and that the law
will be regarded as valid. The insurance
commissioner will eflforce it. One of the
large assessment companies threatens to
test the legality of the act, and there will
probably be extended legislation over it.
The new insurance code also takes ef
fect Monday. It Joes not affect companies
already doing business, unless they desire
to reorganize. It is understood that the
i {Jankers' Life association of St. Paul will
[ take advantage of the act to reorganize
tag an old iioe comsaay.

Queen Bee, the Kettle-Curlew, the Union
Consolidated and the Boundary Camp,
was in the name of C. R. Tuttle, and is
therefore practically, under control of Re

It \s reported to-day that a Canadian
mining syndicate is attempting to secure
control of the American Mining and In
\estment company. It Is not that the com
pany has anything particularly valuable
to transfer, but It holds a number of con
tracts and has done considerable adver
tising and boom work which is worth more
or less. A Mr. Hogg, formerly of Mon-
I treal, who has influential connections with
several Canadian capitalists, is given as
the promoter of the proposed venture.
The Mayor Will Restrict the
Cracker on the 4th.
Places Where Celebrants May Make
Noise Will Be Designated for ;
Patriotic Youth.
Speaking of the glorious Fourth, don't
be too sure that you will buy a bunch of
fireworks and touch them off in a riot of
patriotic enthusiasm at such times and
places as to you seem convenient. There
is a mayor in this town who is out to
conserve the interests of all classes, par
ticularly the voting classes, 21 years old
and over, and no giant fire cracker will
be allowed to blow itself without a permit
from the mayor or chief of police.
"I will regulate the fireworks business
this Fourth of July," is the ukase that
has gone forth from the city hall. "I
will issue a proclamation covering the
noisy business pertaining to the day we
celebrate," says the mayor, "and suitable
places wili be designated for the use of
festive youths and hilarious old men de
sirous of firing crackers, torpedoes, et
cetera, et cetera."
In other words. Mayor Ames will pro
vide "shootoriums" for the benefit of that
large and constantly Increasing class of
persons whose patriotism and the ear
splitting, nerve-wracking noiae which
lurks in a large cracker are one and indi
"Do you mean to say, Mr. Mayor, that
men and boys may not assemble on Nicol
let and make the day and night hideous?"
was asked.
"I mean that same," replied his honor.
"You will find full instructions regarding
the use and abuse of flrewarks in my
forthcoming proclamation, which is now in
course of preparation. Reckless shooting
will not be tolerated. And as for the dis
charge of firearms, the man or boy who
attempts to make a noise with gun or
pistol will get himself in trouble instant
ly. I'll stop the discharge of firearms in
the city limits if I have to swear in a
thousand extra policemen."
Continuing the mayor said he appre
ciated the jocund, even the hilarious sig
nificance of the day, and he wanted every
body to buy crackers and celebrate, but
all fireworks in the down town district
would have to be let off according to the
official program which would constitute
the chief interest of his manifesto. The
toy pistol, the blatant shot-gun, the reck
less revolver, the thunderous cannon
would have to keep silent on July 4 or
their owners or operators would get in
jail. "I will protect life and limb," said
the mayor. "We have had too many
casualties in late years through the reck
lessness of irresponsible persons. The
whole business must be conducted on
common sense lines."
Children Turn Out at the Franklin
Yacntion School.
About 150 Minneapolis boys and girls of
tender years, who only a few days ago
said good-by to classrooms, commenced
school again yesterday at the vacation
school building, Fourth street ans Fif
teenth avenue X. As there wasn't a
school book to be found on the premises,
the young Americans had no misgivings.
The school is under the general super
vision of Mrs. Marion D. Shutter. The
manual training department, in which
about 100 boys are enrolled, is under the
direction of Profeseor John C. Billings, of
the manual training department of the
East high school Boys over 12 years of
age will be given instruction Tuesdays
and Fridays; boys between 8 and 12 years
of age, Mondays and Thursdays; the girls
and larger boys Wednesdays. The boys
are largely recruited from the laboring
class. The tools had not arrived this
morning, and the session was spent in
classifying the youngsters according to
age, grade and size.
About fifty little misses under the direc
tion of Mrs. Ruth Foss were busily ap
plying themselves to the intricacies of
sewing, weaving and basket work.
Miss Marion Knowlton is in charge of
the public playground. The games up to
date are limited to croquet and nine pins,
the pavilion on the ground being used for
the latter. It is hoped that the liberality
of individuals will provide for other
games before the end of the term.
The playground and industrial work at
the Clay school, under Mrs. C. W. Keyes
and Mrs. Countryman, on the South Side,
will be opened to-morow morning. The
industrial work at the Clay school doea
not include manual training.

fairs committee of the Commercial club

Aldermen Meet to Struggle for a
Short Appropriation.
If the Securities Sell Despite Legal
Opposition, Abundant Funds
Will Be Available.
Every alderman at all interested in the
paving subject was on hand at the meet-
Ing of the paving committee of the coun
cil this afternoon and prepared to put up
I a stiff fight for his section. If the $150,
--000 permanent improvement bond issue
falls through for lack of purchasers, of
the bonds, more than one-half of the
j pavement already ordered will have to be <
! annulled. When the committee cornea to
I settle the point of where the annullments
shall be ordered, the trouble will begin.
Aldermen Rand and Neison of the sixth
| ward will never consent to any postpone
i ment of the three blocks ordered on South
Washington avenue. The third and tenth
ward aldermen will insist that the pro
gram be carried out to the letter in North
! Minneapolis. The fifth ward aldermen are
very solicitous about the long-promised
Tenth street pavement. The fourth ward
ers must have the central market district
paved, and Alderman Ryan of the first
will not sand for a failure of his cherished
plan to macadamize Marshall street NE.
How to adjust the claims of the various
sections is the problem before the com
mittee and about the hardest one of the
Bond Sale May Help.
It is probable that nothing definite will
be done until Friday, when the time comes
for opening bids for the purchase of the
bonds. One bid has been received al
ready and three or four more are coming,
it is said. It is possible that some one of
the bidders will overlook the point made
against the legality of the issue. In that
event there is money enough to go around
and there will be no row. It has been
suggested that the bonds be issued in
small denominations and put on the local
market. The ways and means committee
of the council will get together Friday to
consider the situation.
Striking Machinists Reported to Be
Returning to Work.
Minneapolis employing machinists are a
good deal encouraged to-day over the re
ceipt of reassuring news from the east.
O. P. Briggs, president of th« Twin City
Iron works, received the following tele
gram last night from Secretary Devens of
the National Metal Trades association at
New York:
Wire just received from Cincinnati state
shops open to-day. Two hundred men went
to work. Over one thousand working in
shops of local association. No concessions
granted. Believe strike broken. ■ Similar re
ports received from many other points.
The manufacturers declare that the local
situation has been improving daily for
the last two weeks and that it is bound to
grow better constantly.
Eighth Warders Want Him Contin
ued as Superintendent of the Poor.
Eight ward republicans moved on

In the delegation were Alderman Power 3,
H. W. Foote, Frank Heywood, George L.
Matchen, and half a dozen other working
party men of the eighth.

Father Danehy of St. Paul, will probably

Since the recent death of Father Fitzpat
