Report of the Proceed ings on the Monterey Denied by Secretary Herbert but Nevertheless Maintained Commission Sent Out to Pointers from Carnegie's Strongest Rival. Get By the Associated Press. San Francisco, May 14. The even ing paper which last "Friday declared that a number of plates of the coast de fenee vessel, Monterey, had been found to be rotten, today repeats its asser tions. Three mechanics from Home stead who are thoroughly familiar with the plates, plugs and all are said to be now on the Monterey aiding the inves tigating committee and their assertions are declared in every instance to have been confirmed upon examination. Toe Monterey is about to be placed in the drv dock where the defective plates will be removed and the examin ation continued. Secretary Herbert warmly denies that any investigation is being made aboard the Monterey or that his visit here has any connection with any such inspection. At a Rival Mill. Washington, 1).

Today the St. Joseph board of health issued a procla mation announcing that this city will quarantine against the infectious dis ease. JOBS IN DEMAND. Forty-two Applications forTwo i Places. A Reconstruction of the Law Affect ing the Qualification of Unoffi cial City Employes. That employment is in demand far beyond the Bupply was shown at the council meeting last night by the flood of applications for the jobs of city street sprinkler and city scavenger. Heretofore seldom more than two or three bids have been received for each of the places and the wages proposed have been of a character that indicated that the bidders didn't care whether they were successful or not. It waB different last night for a majority of the bids for each job including the daily services, Sunday included, of a man and team, were lower than a man ordinarily would ask for bis nnaided services. There were eighteen proposals for the place of scavenger ranging in price from $55 to $90 per month. The suc cessful bidder was Harmon Wilson, who agrees to remove disease germs for $55 per month. For the job ot street sprinkling there were twenty-lour applications. The lowest figure was $60 and the highest $90. Under the proposal for bids a bid der could make application for only one of the two sprinkling carts. The lowest bids were those ot VV. A. Wilson and a man of doubtful chirograpby whose name looked more like W. S. Tyrell than anything else. The matter was referred to the Btreet committee to inspect the horses of the two apDhcants to see if they have the muscle and endurance to haul the carta A part of the committee's business will be to uncover the identity of Mr. Tyrel, as a suspicion seemed to exist, based wholly on his hand writing, that he is a lawyer poking fun at the council. Contracts specifying the obligations of the bidders, for the violation of which they may be removed, will be drawn up for their signatures. The Blinn Lumber company was awarded the contract for supplying the city with lumber, and A.L. Fisher's pro posal to feed the prisoners at the rate of 144 cents a meal was accepted. In entering into the contract with Mr. Fisher the council learned some law which its predecessors didn't under stand. Heretofore no man has been permitted to engage in remunerative service for the city (by remunerative service is meant any kind of service contradistinguished from that per formed by enforced guests of the city), who was not a voter. This idea of the qualification of bidders was confounded with that of officers who must be vot ers. City Attorney Israel pointed out that a bidder or contractor was notonlv not an officer, but that under the charter an officer could not become a contractor ; to supply the city with anything. Mr, Fisher, therefore, residing without the city limits was eligible to feed the pris oners. Before this matter was settled the applications for scavenger were read. In one case the applicant lived in the city but it transp.red that his getting a team to do the work was contingent upon his getting the job. Some ques tion was raised as to whether he would procure the teaai within the city limits or import it. from one of the out lying suburbs. Ic was readily decided though that it was not required that the horsis should be submitted to the legal test of qualification to hold office. There will be a big fire this afternoon af five o'clock at the southeast corner of the court house plaza. A representa tive of the Chicago Engine company was given authority to inaugurate a conflagiation there for the purpose of showing how expeditiously a chemical apparatus he has for sale can put it out. The council and fire department will be on hand and the rest of the population of Phojnix who will attend in good faith are urged to be present. The resignation of City Engi neer Trott was offered and accepted. The appointment of his successor was considered in caucus, but was hung up until the next meeting. Marshal Mol loy's appointment of Al Hawley to be city jauer was confirmed and the coun cil was adjourned until Wednesday night. PERSONAL.
