P O'Neill Construction company ol
this city for the paving contract on
Twenty-fifth street between Wash
ington and WallSavenuee and on Wall
avenue, between Twenty-fourth :nd
Twenty-fifth streets, a large number
of the property owners in that dis
trict, headed by F J Kiesel. last
night petitioned the city board of
commissioners to award the contract
to the home company The matter
was referred to the committee of the
whole, but the expected report was
not made toda
The petitioners contend that the
O'Neill companv has done er sat
isfactory paving in Ogden and that it
has recently installed an asphalt
plant costing in the neighborhood of
$20,000, while the competing contrac
tor is a non-resident of Ogden and
is an unknown quality as to the pay
Ing he will do. The petitioners say
it is not alwas the lowest bidder
who is cheapest and that it would be
l tter to let the contract to the com
pany that is known to do good work
They contend that as the) are to pay
for the paing if the are content to
pay more to th" o Nrill company,
they should be privileged to do so.
This morning the committee of the'
whole took up the matter briefly but
did not arrhe at a conclusion such as
would warrant a report The report
mas be made tomorrow and the con-:
tract awarded Mr Heman personal
ly appeared before the committee and
gave reference? respecting his abil
ity to do good work. He said that he
has a plant sufficiently large and up
to-date to do the Ogden paving and
that he expects to do as good a job
as any other ontractor can do.
It had come to the knowledge oi
the propertj owners of Ogden and
also to some memberF of the board
of commissioners that Mr Heman hat
only b small asphalt plant which ma
be moved about on cars and that ll
is not a modern plant for street pav-
ing. but Mi Heman advised the com
mittee today that he has an adequate
plant. He also referred to a report
from the Salt Lake engineer which
stated that he had done some of the
best paving In Salt Lake and that he
lis a responsible contractor Mr He
' man was also highly recommended by
the National Bank of the Republic
of Salt Lake.

New York, June 9. The New York I
Presbytery is stirred again by heresy
charges and protests against ordi
nation of union seminary candidates.
After two hours of discussion as
tepslon yesterday, Durther than to
protests was put up to a committee.
The two men whose beliefs were
questioned are Charles Hall Wicks
a Cornell graduate before coming to
union, and James M. Howard, a Yale
man. Both were examined at the !
April meeting of the Presbytery and
accepted, and their ordination as
Presbyterian ministers was ordered
The Rev John Fox made a protest
In April and it was replied to es
terday by a committee. Immediately
there was a reply to the answer and
a further answer to this reply was I
demanded and agreed. Mr. Howard I
was ssked whether he believed that

young man pitted St. John's state
ment against that of exodus, "no mau
hath seen God at any time.-' Asked
whether he believed that Moses got
the pattern for the tabernacle from
God direct. Mr Howard said he would
not comimt himself to so mechanical
a iew- of inspiration. i
When Mr Wicks wa asked if ho
believed the lrgin birth, he replied
that he probablv would find no occa

favor of the complainant
Love Letters Determine Case.
The Schummn-Helnk divorce hear
ing was marked principally by the I
emotional letters introduced in sup
port of the charge that Rapp should
no longer be the husband of the diva
and the repeated Intimations that the ;
defense would prove allegations
against against the singer which
would offset the conduct charged
against her husband.
No attempt was made to contra I
diet the authenticity of the letters
credited to Rapp and written in im
passioned words to Mrs. Catherine
Dean of New York, and the evidence
of the defense failed to show moral
obliquity on the part of the opera
singer I
Madame Schumann-Helnk showed
her joy at the verdict and declared
she would speedily journey to the
Belreuth Wagnerian festival In which
she is to take a leading part.
In announcing his ruling. Judge
Sullivan said
"There were three issues in this
case The court finds that the com- I
plalnant was a resident of Illinois
more than 30 days and the court has
jurisdiction. The second issue was '
the statutory charge. The leading in
ferences of the complainant's evidence
has not been controverted. The third
issue was the recriminatory charge
that although the defendant was prov
en guilty, yet the complainant Is
likewise guilty and ought not to re
cover There has been no evidence
to show that the complainant is other
than a good wife and has been other
than a chaste and virtuous woman.
It therefore bvcomes the duty of the
court to instruct the jury to find for
the complainant "
