The council committee on streets
•Went into executive session last night to
consider the elevated railroad fran
chises. After a discussion lasting two
hours and a half it was voted to report
all the ordinances back to the coun
cil, with the recommendation that they
be indefinitely postponed. This action
leaves the matter entirely in the hands
of the new council, which will organize
June.".. It is highly improbable that
the new body will be any more
willing to act than the present mem
bers. The great difficulty lies in the
way in the selection of routes. -Each
alderman is willing to vote for an ele
vated road, provided it does not run
through his district. There are three
Companies asking for franchises and
they all want substantially the same
route. The Enos Electric Railway com
pony and the St. Paul & Minneapolis
Elevated Railroad company had men
before the committee last- night.
The first company wants the use of
Cedar street, Martin, Bice and Univer
sity avenue, and the second wants to
start a line on Sibley, and thence by
way of Eighth street, out Martin, Bice
and University avenue. Numerous
protests from citizens along the • pro
posed line were before the committee.
In open session the committee
considered the ordinance to grant the
"Northern Pacific road right of way

of property owners appeared to protest,

Read About Them
On the Subject of Measures to Pre
vent Its Spreading a Letter Car
rier and a Doctor Have Some
thing to Say,
The residents of the West ; side are
somewhat agitated over the cases of
small-pox in that ward. The dread
disease originated at 556 Stryker ave
nue, whence it was communicated to
several different localities/. If the
stories brought to the notice of the
Globe be true, and they are evidently
given in good faith, it would seem that,
the filth at these places was not wholly
responsible for the rapid spread of the
contagion, but divided honors with
some neglect on the part of
those instructed to look after the
matter. At 556 Stryker avenue a twelve
year-old girl died of the disease and her
brother and a neighbor's child were
afterwards taken ill with the same com
plaint. Another child was taken down
at 73 George street. In relation to these
two cases, the first In particular. Fred
Kinney, a letter carrier, yesterday had
a word to say. He said he had carried
letters t0 556 Stryker avenue for several
days before he knew that small-pox ex
th.re. No card was on the.house,
be said,uor was there any officer present
to warn people away. At 78 George
street, where the other little girl
died, Kinney said that the card read
"scarlet fever," instead of*" small-pox,"
as it should have read, and no officer
was present at this point either. Mr.
Kinney severely criticised the city au
thorities, and claimed that the quaran
tine was not properly attended to and
no effort made to prevent the disease
from spreading. The quarantine of
ficer over there, he claimed, was de
cidedly negligent.
Dr. Spencer, in speaking to a re
porter, repeated the statement that ap
peared in yesterday morning's Globe.
"I do not apprehend a spread of the
disease," lie said. "The present cases
are light ones, and' small-pox we can
keep within bounds better than any
other contagion, consequently there is
no ground for a scare. Common sense
would teach us that emigrants would
be the persons most likely to be taken
first. There is no need of a scare on
this score either, for every emigrant is
vaccinated at the New Fork quarantine.
So far as the school children are con
cerned, they must be vaccinated before
they are allowed to go to school. It
will do no barm to take proper precau
tions, however, by keeping all filth
away from premises."
The doctor has seen most of the cases
and, having investigated thoroughly,
knows whereof lie speaks. He said
that the authorities had adopted strin
gent measures, and that the public may
rest easy.
J. N. Rogers Home From the Bap
tist Excursion to Washington
"I have just returned from Washing
ton," said J. N. Rogers yesterday.
"Went down with the Baptists— had a
delightful trip, and am proud that a
Minnesotian, G. A. Pillsbury, of Min
neapolis, was honored by the associa
tion. • •:'■:;";•"
--"I met the president at the special
reception given by him on Saturday
last. Two little instances that came
under my observation convince me
that he is bright, quick and well poised.
At the reception, on account of the
crowd, I carried my little boy on my
shoulders, which, of course, placed him
above the level of the president's head.
As Cleveland reached up to shake hands
with him, he pleasantly remarked, 'My
boy, you are looking down on the presi
dent to-day.'
"Immediately behind us was a certain
Baptist minister of New York, who, as
be shook hands with Mr. Cleveland, re
marked that he was very glad to meet
the president, but he wanted him to
understand that he (the speaker) was
the greatest prohibition crank in the
state of New York. 4 You look it,'
quietly responded Grover, to the im
mense amusement of the audience.
While in Washington nothing could ex
ceed the kindness of Senator Davis and
wife and Representative Bice to myself
and family. 1 discovered at Washing
ton that there seems to be among a cer
tain class of ex-Union Officers a disposi
tion to follow the lead of Senator In
galls, of Kansas, and abuse Gens. Han
cock and . McClellan. This seems, how
ever, to be confined entirely to mem
bers of the Legion of Honor. I am
proud to say 1 never heard a comrade of
the Grand Army speak slightingly of
either of these soldiers."
West Side Unionists Dissatisfied
With the Action of the Board of
Public Works.
The West Side union met- last even
ing, and alter having a little talk over
securing a flour mill in the Sixth ward
considered the matter of assessments
for a park. The committee to whom
the subject was referred reported that
the board of public works were to pro
ceed in making assessments on the old
basis instead of within the new "assess
ment line" recommended by the union.
The matter was laid over for one week.
F. 15. Doran urged the matter of im- |
provements on State street. The work
begun on the water mains in that sec
tion of the West side had been neglect
ed. It was reported that the railroad
company was ready to go to work on the
State street bridge and the city would
push operations immediately. Peter
Daly moved that the meetings of the
union be held through the summer only
twice a month, as he wanted to go out
to the lakes once in a while, but, after
some discussion, withdrew the motion.
The park assessment question got an- |
other lift from Dr. Macnamara, who
thought that the board of public works
had not treated the union fairly in the
matter. After a little more kicking on
the same subject the union adjourned.

A Gripman Who Saw Nothing
But Selby Avenue . '-■'■
Hill. .^
* - •
■l ■ i '•■
A shocking accident occurred at
about 4:30 p. m. yesterday at the crest
of the Selby avenue hill, an aged man
named Henry Gardner being fatally
crushed beneath the wheels of a train
on the cable line. Gardner arrived in
St. Paul Thursday night from De Soto,
Wis., of which place he is a well-to-do
and prominent resident, on a visit
to a friend living at 500 Wabasha
street. Yesterday afternoon he and
his friend went out to walk. Naturally
they turned their steps toward St. An
thony hill, and Gardner, having feasted
his eyes viewing the palatial residences
situate in that aristocratic locality, pro
posed to his companion that instead of
walking back home they ride down town
on the cable line, which to him was
a decided novelty. Having reached the
junction of Summit and Selby avenues
and there being no train in sight, the
couple stood in the roadway near the
tracks and within a few feet of the curb
on the southwest corner of the inter
secting thoroughfares. Presently a
train approached, and although it un
doubtedly should have been stopped to
permit of the embarkation of the two
prospective passengers, there was no
perceptible slackening of its speed.
As the train, which consisted of Grip
No. 170 and Coach No. 144, Conductor
Woodward, came abreast of the two
men, each reached forward and grasped
the arm rests of the seats of the grip,
preparatory to swinging themselves
aboard. Such rapid transit, however,
proved disastrous to Gardner. Being
an old man, probably sixty-five years of
age, his clutch was not as' tenacious as
that of his companion. The latter suc
ceeded in getting on the grip, but the
elder man
\ y~- ■-■''■■ SLIPPED ins hold
and fell beside the rapidly moving grip.
In falling* he was drawn by the motion
of the train close to the fender beneath
the long board which serves as a step
to the crip. First on his side, then on
his back he was dragged half-way across
Summit avenue. A shout went
up from the passengers on the grip,
and although the gripman. No. 9,
must have seen Gardner fall and been
conscious of the fact that the poor man
must be Inevitably be seriously if
not fatally injured, he made no effort to
stop the train. Be stood stock still, and
the shouts of the excited passengers
were in vain. By this time Gardner had
• been dragged fully twenty feet. Then the
grip slipped past his prostrate form, and
he fell flat on the outer rail. In an in
stant the forward wheels of the coach
caught his lower limbs. He was drawn
under them and dragged a few feet
nearer the brink of the hill. Now he
was lying across the rail, and the front
directly across his hip and abdomen.;
Gardner shrieked with pain as the
wheels of the heavily loaded coach
ground into his flesh. Before the rear
truck came up to where he lay he rolled
oft the rail, and the train passed on and
disappeared over the brow of the hill.
A dozen or more persons, including a re
porter for the Globe, were wit-,,
uesses of the sickening affair. They
at once rushed to where Gardner lay,
writhing in agony and unable to articu
late. His clothes were torn in shreds,
and from his limbs great patches of skin
had been removed by contact with the
pavement and the wheels of the coach,
lie was raised and carried to the grounds
of A. 11. Wilder, and a summons sent to
the Hondo Street station for the patrol
For a minute or two after his fright
ful experience, Gardner retained con
sciousness. His eyes, were fixed in a
glassy stare and he pressed both hands
on his abdomen, indicating that his in
juries were more than superficial. As
his body was racked with pain
his legs were several times
drawn up convulsively until his
knees and chin nearly met. Then
as the pain became greater he sunk
into insensibility, and although dili
gent efforts were made to revive him,
they were unsuccessful. First his face
would be suffused with a deep flush,
then he would suddenly become pale as
death, and again his countenance would
assume a pale green hue. The ar
rival of the patrol wagon put
an end to the attempts of the
crowd, which by this time had swelled
to about 100, to restore Gardner to con
sciousness. He was lifted into the
vehicle and conveyed to St. Joseph's
hospital. Dr. W heaton was called and
did all that medical skill could do for
Gardner, who lingered unconscious
until 0 o'clock.
as the result of his iv juries. Telegrams
were sent last night to the relatives of
Gardner at De Soto, notifying them of
the sad termination of his pleasure trip
to St. Paul and requesting instructions
as to what should be done with the
body. Some of them are expected to
arrive to-day and arrange for conveying
the remains to De Soto. An inquest
will probably be held.
The train which ran over Gardner was
not stopped by the conductor until it
reached Oak street. When the signal
was given, the gripman jerked back
the lever and his train came to a stand
still. As the passengers bolted back up j
the hill to learn the extent of the I
man's injuries, the patrol wagon j
came and took him away.
The conductor, however, arrived at I
the scene of the accident in time
to discover that Gardner was seriously
hurt. Then, as he saw that the stoppage
of his train had resulted in a blockade
of the line, he trotted back to his post ;
and gave the signal to start to the grip
man, who, when interrogated on the
subject of the accident, said: "Talk to
the conductor. He knows all about it."
Although Gardner had no right to at
tempt to get on the train while it was*
in motion, and by so doing contributed
to the mishap that befell him, there is ,
little reason to doubt that the gripman
was fully as careless as the victim in
not making at least an effort to stop the
train. Had he been as anxious to stop
it as he apparently was to get it over
the hill he. probably would have suc
ceeded. In like measure.
The accident shows also the necessity
of at once equipping the coaches on the
cable line, as are the grips, with fend
ers. As it is, a man falling beside the
grip escapes its wheels only to be
ground under those of the coach at
tached. The wheels of the coaches on
the cable lines in Chicago and else
where are well protected with fenders,
which prevent even the smallest animal
from crawling under the cars. The pa
trons of the cable line in this city are
entitled to like "protection.

The Genesis of Good Clothing.

Pure wool, that's the foundation of all
good clothing. Unfortunately, though, pure
wool costs more than cotton, so some manu
facturers very cleverly mix cotton with it, and
do it. too, so cleverly that only an expert can
detect its presence.
All goods bought here are guaranteed to
be as represented; if a garment has cotton in
it we tell you so; in that way you only pay
for what you buy and you know at the same
time just what you are buying. Isn't it to
your advantage to trade with a reliable House
like this? •

as all the men like and appreciate, neat, gen
teel arid handsome patterns, all reliably made
