A FLOUE CITY FEIDAT.
The Public Bear Garden— A "Big Breeze Over Lieut. Col. Hill's October Salary. Confirmation of the New Officers Deferred Until the Next Eegular Meet . • . / A Railroad and a Plumbing Ordi nance Passed Over the Mayor* Veto. 1 The Trip of Mayor Ames— A -f«s j Fight — General .News >. Notes. I There were but few vacant seats at the common council last evening when Presi dent Clough took the chair. The absent members were Aid. Eichborn. Phillips and Gibson. An invitation to the council to at tend the fireman's ball, Dec. 14. was unani mously accepted. A letter was read from John West, superintendent of the work house, asking that $50 be appropriated to procure books and papers for the inmates *>f the institution, and on motion the appro priation was granted. PREPARING FOR BRIDGES. On motion of Aid. Swenson the city engi neer was directed to make a complete sur vey and get soundings of the bed of the Mississippi river, commencing at the foot of Franklin avenue, and that all necessary es timates and plans be made with a view to the construction of a bridge for public use. A motion was adopted directing the city en gineer to make estimates for an iron truss bridge, having a main roadway of 38 feet with siding of 6 feet wide, accross the Mis sissippi river at Twentieth avenue north. These plans will be laid before a committee consisting of the standing committee on roads and bridges and the alder men of the First and Third wards, at a meeting to be he held Tuesday. Dec. 14. the committee then to report the same back at the next retruiar meeting of the council. A long letter was received from County Attorney Cross in relation to the recent suit of Delphine S. Stocking against the city to recover the site upon which the en gine house on the corner of Washington avenue south and Thirteenth avenue now stands. It will be remembered that the ease was tried some time ago and a verdict was returned for the plaintiff, as follows, with these provisions: Value of the laud, Si 1,000; value of the improvements, 556,600; less the value of the rental since the city took possession in 1876, S6OO. If Mrs. Stocking takes the laud she must pay the city for it 56.000. She will not seil the land to the city for less than $14,000. "The property," says the city attorney, "was bought on the 23d day of August, 1579, of Jesse F. Grafton, for 53, 150. which, with interest at 7 per cent, the city can recover from her if she is worth that amount. I therefore recommend that tbe matter be referred to one of your committees." The committee on fire took charge of the matter. A letter from Harlow A. Gale asking for an extension of time in which to commence the erection of his new market, and promising to have the same completed inside of one year, was referred to the committee on markets. A resolution to vacate Mill street, from Twenty-seventh avenue north to Thir tieth avenue north from the Mississippi river, was unanimously adopted. The bills and pay-roll for November, aggregating $66,174.13, were allowed. The committee on roads and bridges made a report urging tbat W. G. Coolidge & Co., of Chi cago, be granted the contract for constructing the foundation of the center pier of the new steel bridge by the use of a pueumatic caisson for $24, --750. was adopted. The standing commit tee on gas, to whom was referred the peti tion of the Edison Electric and Power com pany, asking that an ordinance be granted them to put in a plant and a system of wires and feeders underground, to furnish Incandescent electric lights to the city, re ported in favor of granting such ordinance. This was done. GILPATRICK GETS THERE. The committee on markets submitted a majority and minority report in the matter of granting Charles Gilpatrick an exclusive franchise to erect a wood and hay market in South Minneapolis. The majority re port favored such franchise. Aid. Phelps made the minority report, and contended that the residents in the neighborhood did not want the market, and that the gentle men who had signed the petition for it did so under a false impression. : Aid. Dwyer made a strong plea for the market, and said that in case it was not run in strict accord ance with the law he would be one of the first to arise and urge that the franchise be rescinded. The majority report was adopted. A VERT BOYISH FIGHT. The question of paying the salary of Lieut. Col. Hill for the month of October was reported favorably by the committee on salary. Aid. Downs wanted to know if Lieut. Col. Hill had been absent from the city during the month. Aid. Cooley replied that the officer had been absent from the city on express order of the mayor. Aid. Johnson jumped to his feet and wanted to know if the city was to pay men who accompanied Mayor Ames around on a campaign tour. Aid. Downs again claimed the floor and said tbat during October Lieut Col. Hill had not been on duty at all, and therefore he was not entitled to pay. Aid. Cooley said no one seemed to take into account the fact that the men on the police force often had to put in extra time for which they had no extra pay. Aid. Downs — I am surprised that a man with as much sense as Mr. Cooley should take the stand he has. The mayor might order him to go and steal horses, and would be bave to do it? Aid. Johnson lt does not seem to me that the lieutenant colonel was ordered to accom pany Mayor Ames, for in that case we would have to believe that the mayor had taken a policeman away with him on his own private business. Lieut Col. Hill took the floor and gave his side of the story. It was to the effect that he had been away from the city seven days during October. Aid. Dwyer did not think it right to make a man work over time and then deduct from his pay when he was off for a few days. Aid. Lawrence wanted to know of Hill why his name did not appear on the police roll during Octo ber, and Lieut. Col. Hill said he did not know. Aid. Downs then shot a few ques tions at the new colonel of police, but learned nothing new. Aid. Mills jumped into the ring at this point, and said he knew that former councils had not seen fit to de duct from a man's salary when he was ab sent, and he thought it ill-became the pres ent council to do so, in view of the fact that one man had just been granted an in creased salary and back pay. He held that if any one was to blame it was the mayor. Aid. Downs thought that Aid. Mills intended to misconstrue him and all he objected to was to paying Lieut. Col. Hill for stumping the state for Ames. The president chimed in and shrieked: "Col. Hill you don't deny that you were out during October in the interest of Ames?" CoL Hill did deny it, however, and Mr. Clough sank back into his seat disgusted. One alderman had referred to an appropria tion of $1,000 that was made by a former council, and Aid. Lawrence said it was not a similar case. It was not then a party issue A vote was called for on the adop tion of the committee's report and about every other alderman had something to say In regard to tbe matter. When it came to Mr President he called Aid. Pratt to the chair and took the floor himself. He said he hoped the report would be adopted, as he considered Col. Hill entirely innocent in the matter. The resolution passed, and a warrant was ordered drawn for the month's salary. A MOTION TO ADJOURN was lost Aid. Johnson, of the special com mittee on legislation, asked that two more members be appointed, and the president appointed Aid. Mareck from the First Ward and Aid. Phelps from the Seventh. The committee on roads and bridges put in a report recommending that the petition of the residents of Nicollet island to pay all damages and expenses of building the ap proaches to tbe bridge on Nicollet street be accepted, and the passage of the ordinance authorteing the same. This report was adopted. The ordinance changing the grade of Hlcollefc street had v*****_io*i J*«ad ing. The joint committee to whom was referred the ordinance regulating the placing of undergrgund wires, cables and conduits reported it back with a recommendation that it pass. It was placed on its second reading, amended and passed. A resolu tion directing the committee on railroads to consult with the officers' of the Milwaukee & St Paul railroad in regard to lowering their tracks in the Seventh and Eighth wards was passed. A resolution was also adopted restraining the street-car company from setting its tracks on the suspension bridge aud its approaches. The council then adjourned until next Friday evening. FIGHTING OVER THE POLICE. Th* "Whole Matter Deferred— Flag Officer Beaton Resign*. At the council last evening the mayor announced the following police appoint ments: Lieut. Col. Charles R. Hill to be chief of police with the rank of colonel, vice Col. M. G. Chase, resigned; Maj. John Landberg to be lieutenant colonel of police, vice Hill, promoted; John N. Priester to be major of police, vice Landberg, pro rooted; Alexander J. Mullen to be sergeant of the municipal court, vice Sergt. George R. Seaton. resigned; Peter McLaughlin to be patrolman, vice Mullen, promoted. The matter was referred to the committee on police. The resignation of Sergt. Seaton created considerable surprise, as did the promotion of A. J. Mullen and the ap pointment of Peter McLaughlin. When the committee on police reported there was a storm raised, for all the appointments were confirmed except that of John Priester. A minority report was made by Aid. Mareck, who moved that all the ap pointments be confirmed. A motion to adopt the majority report was adopted, and then Aid. Johnson asked the council to adopt a resolution calling npon the mayor to discharge all the patrolmen he appointed before the exposition. In speaking to his motion, Mr. Johnson said that he thought it was time that steps were taken to cut down the expenses of the city. Aid. Cooley differed materially from Aid. Johnson, and contended that it was poor economy to dis charge patrolmen, as there were not enough now. Mr. Johnson wanted to know why it was. then, that policemen always went around in groups of three or lour. Aid. Cooley retorted that it was easy to find fault with the police force, as Mr. Johnson seemed determined to do. A motion to lay the whole matter over to the next regular meet ing was made by Aid. Morse, and the mo tion was carried. OVER THE VETO. A Railroad and a Plumbing Ordi nance Passed in Spite of Objec lion*. At the meeting of the council last even ing a lengthy communication was read from •Mayor Ames vetoing the SL Paul & North ern Pacific Railway company's ordinance, granting that company the right to cross streets on the East side at whatever points It pleased. The mayor gave as his reason for so doing that he did not think it right for a corporation to be granted more rights than private citizens. He thought that be fore passing such an ordinance the council would do well to find out by what right the company were already crossing streets on the East side. He also held that the rail ways should be compelled to pay for these grants, as when an opposition company wants anything from another company it has to pay a big price for it. After the reading of the ordinance Aid. Haugan made a spread-eagle speech, in which he said it seemed to him as though the mayor was playing directly into the hands of the com pany. He said that the reasons for not'ap proving the ordinance had nothing to do with the case, and hoped the ordinance would pass. Aid. Johnson followed with a few remarks, in which he said that a veto of the ordinance was just what the Northern Pacific company wanted. If the council did net pass the ordinance over the mayor's veto there would be trouble sorever after, and suit would have to be begun whenever there was a railroad crossing wanted. "If there are any gentle men here who want to put the railroad company where they can dictate to us, and we not to thHm. I want to know who they are. It will be very poor policy for us to allow this company to think they can do just as they please. We must take this thing just as it stands." A vote was then taken, and as there were sixteen who voted to pass the ordinance over the mayor's veto, it became a law. ANOTHER THE SAME WAY. A communication from Mayor Ames was read vetoing the ordinance to amend an or dinance entitled an ordinance to regulate the construction, repair and removal of buildings in the city of Minneapolis. The mayor's veto, he said, was based on inter views with prominent plumbers upon whom he had called. "The cheap plumbing in hundreds of houses which have been built for sale or rent," said the commuication. "has already cost our citizens many valu able lives, and I recommend the most rigid laws to enforce security against bad plumb ing." The ordinance was passed over the veto. "MAYO it AMES** TRIP. i He is to Attend the Washington Convention and Visit Leading Cities. Mayor Ames leaves to-day for the East, expecting to be absent about two weeks. His trip is not only to be quite extensive, but is one which will hit several birds with the same stone, so to speak. He goes to Washington in the first place to attend the convention which begins Tuesday of the exposition board of promotion to consider matters in connection with the proposed constitutional centennial celebration in 1359, aud the 400 th anniversary of the discovery of America in 1592. besides a permanent exposition of the three Americas to be the outgrowth of the world's exposition in 1892, under . governmental control. Next he goes to New Tork city as a delegate from Minneapolis Lodge No. 44, to attend the grand lodge of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks, which assembles on the 12th inst. There he will be joined by Commissioners Glenn. Foote and Farnham. of the water board, and together they will visit the principal cities of the East for the purpose of inspect ing and studying the different systems of water works. The water board has for some time been considering the advisability of locating another pumping station on the river, about one mile north of the city. It is thought that the difference in tbe price of the land to be purchased will more than equal the extra cost of laying a main to the city, and water can thus be obtained which is certain to be free from the impurities which must in a degree result from the emptying of drains into the river within the city limits. IT HAS RUN OUT. Tbe Depositors ia the Farmer** and Mechanics' Rank. Drop on Them* selves. The run on the Farmers' and Mechanics' Savings bank practically dropped out of bight yesterday, and the depositors seem to be coming to their senses, or, in other words, "confidence has been fully re stored." The bank had nearly $500,000 in currency on hand yesterday to pay off de positors and had sent bonds on to New York which could be negotiated immedi ately so as to bring the amount of cash on hand up to $1,000,000 by next week.but it appears that these precautions are need less, as depositors are now returning in stead of withdrawing their savings. Gov. Pillsbury, who is one of the trustees, yes terday telegraphed that he would join with the others in guaranteeing the payment to the depositors of every cent due them. FAMILY TROUBLES. In Which Ebenezer Hodsdon and Hi* Son Figure Conspicuously. ** The life of the Hodsdon family must be a pleasant one, indeed. Their troubles have frequently been aired in the district court, and now another chapter is added. Con way Hodsdon will soon begin suit against his father, Ebenezer, to recover 51,000, which be claims is the value of a house erected by him. In his complaint the young man says that some three years ago his father told him tbat he could have the farm. On this, Conway erected the dwell ing, thinking to use tt when his father should turn up bis toes to the daisies. Soon after the old gentleman agreed to give hisaon the ST. PAUL DAILY GLOBE SATURDAY MOBNIffG. DECEMBER • 4." *<; -SIXTEEN PAGES. farm a real estate boom set in. nnd when values reached $1,000 an acre tie refused to make good his promise. Therefore this son sues him. It is probable that a number of other suits will follow the ones already on the docket. . FUR FALLEN WOMEN. Annual meeting ot* the Good Sister hood of Bethany. The eleventh annual meeting of the Sis terhood of Bethany occurred at the Friends' church yesterday with a good attendance. The physician's report showed Bethany home to be singularly free from fatal ill ness during the past year, only one adult and twelve infants having died. The causes of death in most cases were constitu tional and hereditary. Mrs. Mendenhall presented her report as treasurer. The total expense of the year was $5,497.84, of which 5711.0S remains unpaid, and there is only 525.53 in the treasury. The report of the secretary. Mrs. Walker, was a very comprehensive document, in which all the changes in the management and the details of the work were fully explained. The number received in the home during the year was 95. of whom 70 were adults; num ber of births, 42; deaths, 12: returned to friends, 27; sent to situations, 62; adoptions from the home, 16; refused to remain, 20; in home at the end of the year, 67: total number in home during the year, 210. Great care is taken by the management regarding the adoption of children from the home. It is desirable that the little 'ones be given to parents who are Christians and who will raise them to be God-fearing men and women, and not to those who want them for the work they can be made to do. Mrs. Van Cleve read her report as president It was devoted princi pally to a defense of the act of the Sister hood in accepting the income from fines re ceived by the city from keepers of houses of ill-fame. She deplored the action of the present administration in rescinding that means of revenue. The home is now with out any regular means of support. The lady then discussed at length ways and means for placing the home on a safe finan cial basis. The remainder of the meeting was devoted to a general financial talk, and after prayer by Dr. Talbot the meeting ad journed. GOT A THROAT HOLD. An Anoka Doc Wins a. Hotly Con tested tight. An exciting doe fight took place in the back room of a Third street saloon last evening between a forty-six-pound English bull-terrier, "Maine Slasher," owned by H. H. Johnson, of Anoka, and "Pilot" an American bull-terrier, owned by a Minne apolis bartender. The latter dog weigned fifty-six pounds, and is a son of "Jumbo," owned by Frank Goss. The Anoka canine had the best of the fight from the start and at the close obtained a throat-hold which he held for fifteen minutes, when "Pilot's" owner gave up the fight; time, 1 hour and 30 minutes. The affair was witnessed by about twenty sports, who are loud in their praises of "Slasher's" work. He is only 9 months old, and it is predicted that within six months he will be able to defeat Jumbo. In last evening's battle he was uninjured with the exception of a cut over the eye, while "Pilot" was badly used up, and re fused to come to the scratch after the last break. Culled at Court. The ladies employed at the court house are complaining bitterly in regard to the treatment they receive from the street car drivers, as well as from the company. They are obliged to be at the court house . at an early hour, and in order to get there are obliged to take the cars. Yesterday morning one driver refused to stop for one lady, although she stood almost in the track ahead of him. The consequence was that she walked to her work. The non-heating of the cars is also complained of. The district court adjourned yesterday morning until Tuesday. Dec. 7. The cal endar, which is a large one, embracing as it does 433 cases, will then be taken up. The suit of R. L. Btillman against Mich ael Fitzgerald and others, to enforce the conveyance of lot 16, block 81, Jackson, Daniels & Whitney's addition, was decided yesterday, when J udge Young filed a de cision in favor of the plaintiff. S. H. Baker has begun an action against Arthur A. Camp to recover $3,400 alleged to be due on a promissory note. Israel Bergstrom has commenced an ac tion * for divorce against Fannie A. Berg strom, because she deserted him. They were married in St. Joseph. Mo., in 1882, and lived together a little over a year. St. Stephen's Fair. The ladies of Father Kenney's parish were happy last evening, for a large and generous crowd thronged Harmonia hall and chance books were rapidly filled. Over 200 chances have been sold for the crayon portrait of Father Kenney. The voting on the gold watch is exciting and close. Miss Mac McDouough having 36 votes and Miss Kate Loftus 35. The friends of the law yers denote their partiality in a good, sub stantal way, the votes for the gold-headed cane standing J. R. Corrigan 35. C. A. Gal lagher 34. William Kenney 26. J. B. Quinn 16, scattering 27. The refreshment room was filled throughout the evening and guests were loud in their praises of St. Stephen's cooks. To-night closes the tair and a crowded house may be expected. GOSSIP OF THE IDEALS. The fascinating little De Lussan is seen to no better advantage than as Arline, in "The Bo hemian Girl." and last night 6he captivated the large audience that made standing room scarce. She has improved somewhat since last season, and her elegant form has filled out and rounded, until her arms, which were rather slender, are now plump and smooth. The opening duet was rapturously applauded and a quantity of flowers scut to tho stage. * * * Miss Huntington was never in better voice nor sang to better effect. She interpolated a soucr, -"Better I Were Dead." just after the pledging of Thaddeus and Arline. For artistic vocalization it is doubtful if she has a peer in* the company. *** * Some of the flowers sent Mile. De Lussan, last night, were the votive offering of a young newspaper exquisite, whose other n*uae is withheld. When the flowers were ready to hand over to the usher, the exquisite discov ered he bad mislaid his card case — probably left it in the new escritoire in his private office — and was without a card. One was sup plied him and upon it he hastily wrote his name, and attached it to the flowers. He did not notice that ou the back was a printed name, but when the fair recipient glanced carelessly at the card, "Jack O'Keef**." in big, bold, black letters was staring at her. She wondered who he was and naturally con cluded he was some unknown who had wor shiped her from afar. *_.* It is generally pretty well known that Man ager Foster bad a little scrimmage on Mon day night, but the facts have not been told. As be was tripping about the scenery in pat ent leather pumps, he ran across the agent of a laundry firm who was waiting for some soiled linen. "Wnadjo doing here?" he de manded. The errand was stated. "Gome, get out, get out, scat!" said Foster, with a vigorous push. "Lemme 'lone and I'll go," said tbe agent. Foster gave another push, and the lauadryman turned and gave him an upper-cut that caught him on the left cheek. The manager was dazed and the laundryman fled, but the former recovered and started in pursuit. The fugitive went out the stage door and the irate manager after him. but tbe moment the pumps struck the ground down be went at full length. He collected himself and returned, and all be said was: "Who is that fellow? I like his way of doing business." < ALL SORTS. The jovial face ef Dr. Simon Quialln, of Chicago, the deputy exalted grand ruler of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks, was seen on the streets yesterday. Tbe doc tor has come. to Minnesota for the purpose of attending tbe birth of another "baoy," which takes place at St. Paul this evening. The two men suspected of complicity with the Minneapolis postofi.ee robbery proved a conclusive alibi by shewing that they were in the penitentiary at Stillwater. Such an alibi as tats should establish their innocence be yond question. Tae Nineteenth Century clnb, which re cently enjoyed an address from Carter Harri son, of Obi cago, upon muoiefpat reform, might corral Mayor Ames while be ie East and extract from his. some valuable pointers on cfcry government.

Bits of wood are first dipped in Melted Sul pher and dried, then in a paste of phosporus, nitre and glue, which completes the process. The object of "nitre" is to furnish oxygen to quicken the combustion. Instead of this potassium chlorate is sometimes used. It can be recog nized by a crackling sound and jets of flame when ignited. The tip 3 are colored by red lead or Prussian blue mixed in paste. When a match is burned, chemistry says, the reaction is as fol lows— the friction ignites the phosphorus; this produces heat enough to inflame the sup plier; lastly, the wood. While there is mystery in all combustion, there is no mystery in there being so many people in the U T K. It has the goods to attract them, and the prices make them buy.
