Derelict Shells of Prehistoric Frame Buildings Are
Continued in Service Long After They Are
Unsafe and Unsightly—Effect Is Slovenly.
Here is another place where Minneapolis falls down.
The building ordinances are not enforced; old, tumble-down buildings are al
lowed to remain in the business districts, veritable firetraps and a constant menace
to abutting property, as well as eyesores to, the community..
Recently this very matter came up In the city council. The building inspector
ordered an old shack, that he considered dangerous, torn down. The owner, how
ever, happened to be the possessor of a full-grown, healthy political pull, and he
went before the council and had the order rescinded. The shack is still standing.
Some years ago Captain Charles King, in writing of Minneapolis in the Cosmo
politan magazine, said that it was possible for the visitor to be whirled to the top
of one of the finest office buildings in the world and from its roof drop peanut shells
upon a Chinese laundry some hundreds of feet below. The building he referred to
was the Guaranty Loan, then just completed; and while the statement Is no longer
literally true, it still applies in a figurative sense in many parts of the city.
Minneapolis is a city of bizarre architectural contrasts; of disgraceful building
antitheses. It may be argued that this is unavoidable in a young and growing city,
and to a certain extent that is so, but in many cases the evil could and should
be removed. ■
The frame fire-traps on Fifth street, Just off First avenue, are most unsightly
features of the city; and the same thing is true of the condition of property in
the vicinity of the new Chamber of Commerce and the courthouse and city hall.
The existence of these fire traps increases the cost of Insurance on neighboring
buildings and in other ways lessens their value.
The evil should be remedied so far as It is within the power of the municipality
to remedy it, and at once.

He Question). Authenticity of Re
ports That It Has Been
A dispatch from Kansas City announ
ces that the United States marshal and
district attorney for the western district
of Missouri received a circular letter yes
terday from Attorney General Knox call
ing especial attention to the civil serv
ice law. They are 1 asked to notify all fed
eral employes not to take any active part
in politics. The circular reads:
To all officers and employes of the depart
ment of justice:
Your atention is directed to a circular of
this department issuing Aug. 20, 1900, in which
section 2 of the civil service act of Jan. 16,
1883, forbidding any executive officer or em
ploye, among others, to solicit or receive
political contributions from any officers or
employes of the United States, was quoted,
and all .persons serving under this depart
ment were required to observe strictly the
prohibitions of this law, and were recom
mended to refrain from service on political
committees charged with the collection or
disbursement of funds, I now repeat the in
junctions of that circular, and add the fol
lowing further directions on this subject:
Rule No. 2 of the civil service rules pro
vides that no person in the executive civil
service shall Use his official authority or offi
cial influence for the purpose of interfering
with an election or control the result thereof.
The spirit of the civil service laws and rules
renders it highly undesirable for federal offi
cers and employes to take an active part in
political conventions or in the directions of
other parts of political machinery. Persons
in the government service under this depart
ment should not act as chairmen of political
organizations nor make themselves unduly
prominent in local political matters. It is ex
pected and required that all officers and em
ployes of this department shall act in entire
conformity with the views herein set forth.
W. H. Grimshaw, United States mar
shal for Minnesota, did not receive the
circular yesterday, and questions its ex
istence. Neither does he recall the cir
cular of Aug. 20, 1900. . He says that on
assuming office three years ago he looked
up the law carefully with Robert G.
Evans, then district attorney, and they
decided that the law did not prevent fed
eral officeholders from participating in

The Associated Charities' Field Is to
Be Enlarged.
At the regular monthly meeting of the
board of the Associated Charities it was
decided to add a visiting nurse to the
staff. The association is constantly com
ing into contact with families where sick
ness makes a nurse a necessity and to en
able the poor to have the care they re
quire it will ask for contributions to
meet the additional expense. Checks or
money may be sent to the treasurer, J.
B. Sutherland.
The report for October shows that 140
appeals were made for advice, service or
material assistance. Of these forty-five
were new families, ninety-three families
already known to the association and two
gave false addresses. The members of
the staff made ninety visits and 724 odd
jobs were given out through the employ
ment bureau to women, 185 to men, while
three permanent positions were found.
A larger number of people are using the
Associated Charities and the spirit of co
operation is growing to a marked degree.

Plans for a Municipal Plant Smoth
ered by Aldermen.
The Water Bond- for a Filtration
Plant Are Sent to Com
Municipal electric lighting was effectu
ally put to Bleep at last night's meeting of
the city council. By a vote of 16 to 9
the aldermen decided that the people
should not. have the privilege of voting on
the proposition at the next general elec
tion. The question of submitting bonds to
the amount of $500,000 for the purpose of
installing a water filtration plant and ex
tending the water distribution system was
removed from rublic focus for a time by
being sent to the waterworks committee
for consideration. The subject will prob
ably remain in the background indefinitely
now that the purpose for which it was
brought out has been accomplished.
The electric lighting proposition was
plainly an unpopular, or at least, untime
ly, measure with the aldermen, Some
opposed it on one ground, some on an
other. Some were plainly honest in their
views. With others politics or some
other motives entered into the case. The
combination was harmonious and ' quite
effectual, however.
The democratic contingent was against
the proposition almost to a man. Alder
man Rand alone lined up on the other
side, a situation explained by the fact
that he has an important political contest
coming next year and must keep j very
close to the hearts of the sixth ward
people during the intervening • months.
The general democratic attitude is not
strange, as it is natural to expect that
the bourbon members of the council will
do nothing that will in any way tend to
make political capital for the repub
licans next year. It is probable that some
day they will desire to take up tha. elec
tric lighting proposition themselves and
boom It for a few political gains.
Leighton and Powers Worked Hard.
Aldermen Leighton and Powers made
earnest apeals to their colleagues for fav
orable consideration of their measure,
both at the committee meeting in the
afternoon and in the council in the even
ing, but wholly in vain. Alderman Pow
ers recited at much length the experi
ence of other cities to substantiate his
claims. The cost of electric lighting had
invariably been cut right in two when the
municipality took upon itself the task of
doing the lighting, he declared. It was
reasonable to expect that the same could
'be done here. Indeed he declared his
positive belief that the city could save
anywhere from $50,000 to $100,000 a year
by operating its own lighting plant.
Probably there would be no need of
-building a plant after the bonds had been
authorized by the vote of the people. The
mere fact that the council would thereby
be put in a position to threaten the pres
ent lighting monopoly in 'Minneapolis
would undoubtedly bring the General
■Electric company to make reasonable
terms, as had been done in other cities.
In either event, therefore, there would
result a vast saving annually to the tax
payers. Municipal electric lighting was a
sound business proposition.
But all appeals fell on deaf ears. The
aldermen had made up their minds and
could not be moved. For gentlemen wno
were cock sure that they had the right of
the matter they did a lot of explaining of
their votes, however. Some labored pain
fully in the operation. Others presented
their views very ingenuously. Some who
on principles were opposed to undertaking
the burden of municipal lighting at this
time nevertheless voted for the proposi
tion to submit the case to a popular
■vote, on the theory that the people had
the right to speak for themselves in the
matter. ' The vote on the measure was
as follows:
In favor of submitting the question to
the people:
Chatfleld, Leighton, S. E. Adams, Rand,
McLaskey, McCune, Powers, A. S. Adams,
President Jones—
Against: Foell, Ryan, Lane, Mumm, Mer
rill, Holmes, Nels J. Nelson, Main, Mc-
Coy, Larson, Dwyer, Peterson, Peter Nelson,
Castle, Sutherland, Schoonmaker—l6.
It will be noticed from the vote that
Aldermen Main and McCoy, who voted in
the committee three weeks ago in favor
of the proposition, lined up on the other
side on the final test.
C. G. W. Ordinance Set Back.
The railroad committee of the council
recived a heavy blow last night, when by
a vote of 15 to 10, the council turned down
its report recommending the passage of an
ordinance granting the Chicago Great
Western Railway company the right to
operate four more tracks across Second
street in the rear of its terminal station.
The sixth ward aldermen led the fight
against the ordinance. The presumption
is now that the company will have to
agree to accept an ordinance requiringi
it to pay special assessments against all
its property in the city, instead of only
that directly Involved.
The Northwestern Telephone company,
under the stimulus of active competition,
has finally developed a liberal streak to
ward the city. Last night the company
submitted a proposition to the council
offering to give the various city offices
free use of telephones after Jan. 1.
Some twenty telephones are Involved. The
city has-been paying about $1,000 a yeaß
for this service up to date. ■•..■-.
Bids were received last night for doing
the plumbing and gas fitting and steam
fitting in the new engine-house on
Fourth street. There were seven in each
class end the wide disparity of the bids
evidenced the final breaking of trust ties
in the plumbing fraterity. There was a
difference of more than 25 per cent be
tween the highest and lowest bids on
i plumbing and gas fitting and about 20 per
j cent on steam fitting.
Health Commissioner Hall sent in a
i communication recommending an ordi
! nance requiring that all dogs running at
! large be muzzled, in view of the recent
presence of rabies among dogs. The mat
ter was referred to the committee on
health and hospitals.
A filter company, represented by E. M.
Anderson, submitted an offer to equip
every house in the city using city water
with a filter for the sum of $100,000. It
was urged that this would save the city
from $300,000 to $400,000 on a filtration
plant now under consideration. The offer
was referred to the waterworks commit
tee. ,-; ■ ■'. ■:. :;vj;; ■; :■■■;'■; ';:'■'■
Filtering Plant Action.
The filtration plant matter waa dis
posed of at a meeting of the special com
mittee yesterday afternoon. Aldermen
Peterson and Lane appeared as the spec
ial champions of extensive waterworks
improvements. Alderman MoCune,, chair
man of the waterworks committee, took
the stand that there was no Immediate
call for a filtration plant, that the medi
cal men had made no objections to the
North Side water, and that it was good
potable water, wholly free from sewage
contamination. All agreed, however, upon
the necessity of large extensions of the
water distribution system, in order that
when the new pumps were installed
plenty of water could be gotten into all
sections of the city at all times. City
Engineer Sublette estimated that $169,
--000 would be required for this. purpose.
The majority of the committee felt un
equal to the task of coming to any de
cision in the matter at such short notice
and referred it to; the waterworks com
mittee for investigation. .-.,.
