Summary of the Doings of One Day Gathered From All Sources. VETOED BY HIS HONOR. «*" tThe Mayor Refuses to Sign the Sanitation Company's Contract. The present city council is on the Verge of dissolution, and held a special meeting last evening to dose up old business. A resolution was adopted fixing Saturday evening, June 2, as the next and last meeting. The meeting was characterized by considerable hilarity, and at the same time a great deal of business was accomplished. A communication was read from Mayor Smith, in which he vetoed the ordinance giving the contract for re moving garbage to the St. Paul Sanita tion company. The mayor gave as his • reason that' the present contract does not expire for a year and a half, and the other "extends the time five years beyond that period. He thought it was not to the best in terests of the city to make such con tracts. The communication was placed on file. Subsequently, on motion of Aid. Sanborn, it was reconsidered and referred to the.committee on streets. An agreement was approved with C. 8. Hoist to place in position in various ■arts of the streets, not more than twelve public water closet stations, at his own expense, their location to be designated by the city engineer. The tim%of the natural gas com pany, at Midway, was extended one year, and the People's theater license Was fixed at .7.. per annum. A WEST SIDE ROBBERY. Isaac Goldberg*.! Store Raided and the aafe Blown Open. The jewelry shop of Isaac Goldberg, en Fillmore avenue, near Dakota, was entered by burglars Sunday night. A small safe, in which was locked most of the stock, was blown open and relieved of watches, watch chains, cuff and col lar buttons and other cheap articles, valued at about $500. Some gunpowder, a drill and brace, which had been used to accomplish the work, were left lying in the showcase. The job was very poorly executed, and was undoubtedly the work of novices. Night Jailer Will- lam _» lveete. or tne central station, who lives on the West side, found a portion of the plunder in the rear of a neigh bor's house, on Water street, less than a block from Goldberg's, while on his way home yesterday morning. Only the smaller, and cheaper articles, such as cuff buttons and gold-plated chains, were left, showing .has the thieves had Stopped there to divide the swag, and liad discarded what they did not want. WHICH IS DEFECTIVE ? _The Eire Engines and Water Sup ply to Re Tested. The special committee of the council appointed in March to investigate the working of the fire department and the water service- in the business district liave secured the services of John J. Hill, an expert engineer of Cincinnati, 0., and a practical test will be made this week. The engines will be placed as they stood at the time ot the disas trous fires in the wholesale district last winter, and with the assistance of Mr. Hill the committee will determine Whether the present water mains are large enough to supply the engines and whether the engines are of sufficient ca pacity to do the work required. When the committee has decided where the fault lies a report will be made to the council. Mr. Hill, the expert engineer, attended a meeting of the fire commis sioners yesterday morning and was au thorized to make the necessary arrange ments for the test, in connection with Chief Black. POINTS ON MAIL service. (Supt. Campbell Explains the-De livery of Intcrurban Mails. A number of complaints have been Recently entered by the business men of St. Paul and Minneapolis to the effect that letters sent between the two cities were frequently delayed. Assistant | Superintendent William P. Campbell.of I the railway mail service, has investi- I gated many of these complaints and finds that the fault lies mainly with the public. "For a letter to be delivered in Min neapolis," said Mr. Campbell, "the same day it is mailed in St. Paul, it must be placed in the postoffice not later than 2:. 0 p.m. There are later mails to Minneapolis, but, none of them have a delivery the same day. Conversely, a letter delivered in St. Paul in the after noon must be placed in the Minneapolis postoffice not later than noon. The rea- ! son for this is that after 2 o'clock p. m., the mail carriers in the business district g» to the depot to meet the incoming fast mail from Chicago and deliver that mail at 3:15 p. in. If the Chicago train reached St. Paul three-quarters of an hour earlier, we could have another de livery in the afternoon, but now it is im possible. When letters are delayed the envelopes should be saved and sent in to us with the complaint. It is of no use to throw away the evidence and then make a complaint. We investi gate all proper cases and seek a remedy, nut business men must not expect to put a letter in at Minneapolis in the aft ernoon and have it delivered in St. Paul the same day. The thing is impossi ble." Referring to another very familiar complaint, Mr. Campbell continued: "People want to know why we don't have a mail box in the union depot to take mail for outgoing trains. Now, there's only one transfer agent at the depot, and lie has the mail of twenty-one railway postoffices to handle every day. That doesn't leave him any time to collect mail for every outgoing train. If any body is at the depot, however, and wants to rush a letter out on any particular train, they can hand it to the agent on the mail car. The law obliges him to take it if it is properly stamped." THE FUNERAL. TO-DAY. Arrangements for the Interment of the Late .1. W. MeClung. The arrangements for the funeral of Hie late J. W. McClung, to be held this, afternoon at 3 o'clock, have been com pleted.

A Gambler's Kindly Action— Hilton's — John Baugh's Fish Story. " '. ".;/-■ V^";.vi' . Many people on Third street yester day noticed an old woman, troubled with blindness and other infirmities, seated on the curbstone at the corner of Minnesota, grinding out doleful music to passers-by from a miserable, cracked, old hand-organ. There happened by at 6 o'clock, when the street was filled with people, a man whose business in St. Paul is to "get the best" of his fellow man by games of chance. He stopped, felt in his pocket and dropped a hand ful of coin into the old woman's cup. then went his way. The act was infec tious and a dozen more aided in half filling the battered old tin. Though the originator of the old woman's good fort une is in a business scarcely commend able, those who knew him and wit nessed his generous action had great respect for him from that hour. * * Manager Ed Hilton has been enjoying life hugely for the past few days at the expense of his friends. Recently a friend from Chicago presented him with a scarf pin that is a life-like imita tion of an ordinary house fly. Instead of placing it in his tie, Ed pinned it in the bosom of his shirt. "There's a fly on your shirt, Hilton," remarked a friend. '•Well, knock it off," he replied. . The fellow thumped away at the insect, but his linger came in contact with a metallic body that failed to move. Hilton's laughter was followed by the query: "What 'll you have?" Since then 100 others, who have inter ested themselves in knocking that fly front Hilton's shirt, have followed the example of the first discoverer. ' * * "1 have heretofore enjoyed the repu tation of being a big fish liar, but 1 shall never tell another fish story except one," remarked John Baugn, of the Astoria, yesterday. "The story was told me. and killed every oue 1 ever re lated it to. This is it: "Two young fellows went fishing and stopped at a farm house. While the old lady was cooking dinner they sent the old farmer for bait. In half an hour he returned with a pailful of worms. "'How much do we owe you?' the young fellows asked. " 'Well,' began the old man, reflect ively scratching his head, 'et's a party warm day, worms down in the ground party far and kinder hard work diggiu' em ' " 'Well, that's all right.but how much do we owe you?' v " 'Wal, 1 was thinkin' of goin' fishin' myself to-morrer. an" if yell gimme half the worms I'll call it square.' " *. * He was a ragged, dirty-looking tramp, and by some means had gained access to the Globe tower. While gazing out o'er the city he gave vent to a soliloquy, which was overheard." "When the average maiden first be gins to leave her fifteenth year behind' and greets with gladsome shout poetical sweet sixteen," he mused, "the eyes of friends, long accustomed to an ungrace ful form, begin to see traces of im provement that ere long ripens into beauty. The awkwardness is gone, this defects 'disappear, one., by one until all ' perceive with gladdening - eye that the lapse of time alone must complete the happy picture. So is it now it St. Paul. The awkwardness of a long and tedious winter i* displaced by a coining sweetness. Warbling birds twitter with gleesome joyousness, and the very air is redolent with perfume* The trees are beginning to bud, and the uncouth branches lose their uncouth ness more and more as each day is num bered in the archives of the past. But as with the maiden sweet, one defect still remains, which somewhat blurs sweet nature in her efforts to -develop. It is merely an ordinary scrap between the maid and Jupiter Pluvius in his sublime endeavors to assert his pres ence. However, the aforesaid lapse of time must surely cause a full and brightening bloom, and a cessation of aqueous deposits, likewise the grum blings of the populace. And when this transformation comes, the appreciation will be far deeper and more lasting." Verily there are many words of truth in the old tramp's philosophy. The public. might do well to philosophize in like manner, and cease its epithets against "this glorious climate." BREWERS ARE COMING. Arrival of Delegates to the Na tional Convention Expected To nay. 3-E39 Over the Jackson street entrance to the Merchants hotel is a large banner bear ing the inscription, 'Welcome, United States Brewers' Association," peeping out of a network of evergreens, and this was the only decoratiou attempted at the rendezvous for the delegates to the twenty-eighth ..annual convention, which meets here to-morrow. President W. A. Miles was among the first of the brewers to put in an appearance, but the majority of those intending to par ticipate in the convention will arrive this forenoon.

This evening there will be a public reception at the Standard hall, where the convention will hold its sessions, and an address of welcome is expected to be delivered by Mayor Smith, who will be followed by other leading men of St. Paul in extending courtesies and words of good cheer to the visitors.

The committee appointed to prepare resolutions on the death of Commodore Kittson presented the following pre amble and resolutions, which were read by the secretary and adopted by a rising vote: mES The committee charged with the duty of preparing resolutions expressing the sincere regret of the chamber of com merce of St. Paul at the announcement of the sudden death on the 10th inst. of Hon. Norman W. Kittson, one of its most esteemed members, respectfully report the following preamble and reso lution: Whereas, Almighty God in His wis dom has seen fit to remove from us by death Hon. Norman W. Kittson, one of the oldest members of this body; and Whereas, The deceased was one of the most distinguished citizens of Min nesota, whose residence antedated by many years the establishment of a ter ritorial government in this remote re gion, and who thereafter was elected to high offices of public trust, the duties of which he discharged with signal ability aud fidelity; and Whereas, The deceased, after long years of toil and exposure, accumulated a large fortune by his energy and busi ness acumen, much of which he dis pensed for the benefit of his fellow creatures, in relieving individual dis tress and in aiding religious and chari table institutions; and Whereas, In all measures for the ad vancement of this city, N. W. Kittson was ever ready to contribute his full share as a public-spirited citizen, there fore, Resolved, That the death of Hon. Norman W. Kittson may well be re garded as a public calamity. Resolved, That as a member of the legislature of Minnesota for four suc cessive years, and as a mayor of this city, the "deceased was a bright example of integrity and fidelity to his trust, [while as a private citizen he was a model of strict adherence to honesty and truth in all his business relations. Resolved, That the foregoing pream ble and resolutions be entered at length on the records of this chamber and that a copy thereof be .transmitted to the family of the lamented dead. A TRIBUTE FROM GKX. SIBLEY. • A Diograpmcai skcccii oi _ir. i_iu. on was read by (Jen. Sibley, and on motion Of Mr. Murray it was directed to be en tered upon the record. Gen. Sibley said: Mr. President: The committee to whom has been as signed the melancholy duty of form ulating resolutions expressive of the sincere regret of this chamber at the demise of Hon. Norman W. Kittson, one of its most prominent members, which sad event occurred on the 10th inst., has instructed me to make its re port accordingly. Before submitting it 1 crave the indulgence of this body in presenting a brief statement of facts connected with the career of the de ceased and the personal relations which for more than half a century existed be tween us. 1 first met Mr. Kittson in the year IS_ O. We were as yet both in our teens, albeit I was three years his senior. Then followed a sketch of Mr. Kitt son's early life and his business deal ings in the Northwest. __£9l "Commodore Kittson was in many respects a remarkable man," said (Jen. Sibley in closing. "For the last twen ty-five years of his life our relations were of an intimate, and 1 may say of a confidential character. lie had his faults, as all men have, but they were overshadowed and obscured by his more noble qualities. Truth was his guiding star. He was so scrupulous in that re spect that in the more than fifty years of our acquaintance I can not recall a single instance of deliberate falsehood on his part. He was a public-spirited citizen, ready at all times to respond generously to demands upon his purse for meritorious objects. His private bene factions were numerous, and so far was he from ostentatious display in dispens ing them that in many cases he did not divulge them to me, his most intimate friend. Mr. Kittson was a firm believer in the truths of Christianity, and during the rectorship of the Rev. Dr. S. 11. McMasters, deceased, became a commu nicant of Christ church in this city. His family now worship in the Church of the Good Shepherd, Rev. William C. Pope, rector, to whom Mr. Kittson, while living, was very much attached. It will be long before Norman W. Kitt son will fade from the memory of white men and red men, for he was a friend of all alike. History will enroll him as one of the foremost of the noble band of pioneers who laid, deep and broad, the foundation of this great common wealth. His death leaves me, for a brief period, the oldest surviving white settler in ail of Minnesota and Dakota. "No further seek his merits to disclose, Or draw his frailties from their dead abode, (There they alike in tremblinc hope repose,) The bosom of bis father and his God." _ The Chosen Sixty.

"The Humming Bird" hummed at the Grand last night to an audience that nearly filled the house. The humming was done by the Salsbury Trouba dours, with "Nellie Mcllenry as boss hummer and kicker at large. It is not the poetic performance the name signi fies, nor is it a play of the same standard that the Troubadours are accustomed to give. It is nondescript, unless it be designated as classic variety. There are a great many mirth-provoking features, provided people are not overly, sensitive as regards what constitutes refined comedy. A couple of husbands and their wives get mixed up in a scan dalous affair .by answering "per sonals" in a newspaper, each with out the knowledge of the other, and without any more distinctive plot or thread the play is filled in with a lot of variety specialties.

He placed the num ber of retail liquor dealers in the coun try at 188,107, and wholesale at 4.241. He also stated that the use of fermented liquors in the last nine years had increased 100 per cent. "The Relation of the Saloon to Politics" was the subject of an essay read by 11. S. Griggs, of St. Paul. It was a statement of the saloon's power, and .: especially a history of the .vers' association, which he thought had strengthened the saloon element four-fold." Capt. J. X. : Cross, of Minneapolis, read a paper. In the course of his re marks he said there • were two tactions in the temperance party, one advocating the potent influence of moral suasion, the other the reclaiming power of prohibitory law, and he thought that the masses had always been in favor of all laws of a restrictive and repressive character instead of a prohibitory. The Germans, he said, left the Republican party on account of its restrictive laws, but lie believed that in rt few years they will be educated up to that point where they will stand by the Republican party with all its restrictive measures. Gen. A. 11. Net tleton scored the Prohibitionists. The aim of the party, he considered, was to force a choice between free rum or norie, and that it considered even local option invalid.
