The council committee on fire depart

yesterday morning, with Aldermen
Woodward, Farnsworth and Flanders
present, and City Clerk Uaney ofticiat
inir as secretary. Aid. Gray, who
brought about the investigation and has
shown a very lively interest in the mat

and the meeting: had hardly been well
opened before he and Chairman Wood
ward, of the committee, indulged in a
lively little set-:o
Aid. Woodward inquired of Aid. Gray
how be committee on claims learned of
the irregularities iv the pay rolls, and
why it was that the committee on tire
department had not been apprised of
these things at the same time. Aid.
Gray replied that the pay rolls them
selves showed the discrepancies and
also showed that the monthly rolls had
steadily increased from $17.4'.)1.0t; in
January. lS'Jl.to 519,599.52.in December,
of the same year, and that the depart
ment had exceeded its appropriation for
the year by $1,800.
"How 'is it that this came to the
knowledge of the committee on claims
when the committee on lire department
was not informed of it?" inquired Aid.
. "Probably because the committee on
claims was attending to its business and.
the committee on fire department
was'Dt." retorted Aid. Gray.

that the commissioners on fire depart

he had acted upon it. The men, how
ever, were detailed from the depart

What Ke Says About St. Paul Los-
ing the Convention.

"I think that some of the papers have said
altogether more than was necessary about
the failure to pet the convention. 1 ' said Mr.

would make out. I could not see that it w;:s
The talk about Hill, Gorman and Brice and
some others having: bo many proxies is
wrong. iv my opinion. I couln not discover
thnt any such suue of affairs existed. I know
that Gorman had one prcxy from the
Georgia conimmceinitn, but mat was offstt
by Vilas having the proxy of the Montana
reuresentative. We went down there to get
the conveuiion for the Northwest. We did
not get it. and that Is all there is to ir. We
men from this part of the country learned a
good deal down there. We learned that the
heads ot the party had figured that this will
be the biggest convention the party ever
held. It will require a big city to talte care
of it. Of course, we think we en n take care
of it, and we tried to make the others see It
with our eyes. But It was hard work to do
it. The papers have h.\d a good deal to say
about the scarcity of rooms in Minneapolis
for tne men whowant to come to the Repub
lican convention, and that hurt us a good
deal. It matters not that much that has been
ssid about Minneapolis iv this connection U
untrue. People who are uuucquaiuteu with
the facts tee the statements that pet into the
Eastern papers, and they believe much of
them. It is difficult to disabuse their minds.
They always harbor a suspicion that :t might
be unwise to send the convention up here.
In the case of Chicago there was no sort of a
question. All the members of the national
committee knew tnat Chicago would be able
to handle the convention to the satisfaction
of all. And so it went to Chicago.'

MORTON STOCK. UP.
Libby and Harrison Say They
Have a Bas»e Ball "Cinch."
The base ball situation iv Minneapolis is iv
as much of a muddle as ever. Horace Libby
and Lew Harrison came home fruni Chicago
yesterday. They ure as positive tnat Morton
will have the franchise as Hiich is that the
Minneapolis team will play under his man
agement. Dave Kowc also blew in from the
direction of the Windy City The tip was
given out last night tiiat any one anxious
to bet should, to be safe, place his money ou
the statement that Morton will have the
franchise. At the sumo time it is given out
that Dave Rmie will have the franchise in
St. Paul, and that Jack Bennett will be in
terested with him. However true this may
bec&unotbe demonstrated until the commit
tee on orit<*ui/:uion makes report und desig
nates the holder of the Western league fran
chise for Minneapolis.
Horace Libby went from the nieeiinf? ia
Chicago to Louisville to see Sum Morton in
person. He comes digectly from a conference
with Morton with the assurance that Morton
wants the franchise, and Hint he will net it.
Morton will be in town himself tomorrow or
next day. Libby says that Morton look the
Louisville offer with the distinct under
standing with Hfeffer that he might throw up
the saloon business if he could get the fran
chise in Minneapolis. And get it he will.they
are certain. The Morton people advance, as
their reason for thinking as they do. thai tne
franchise would have been voted to Bach at
the last meeting in Chicago if the league had
nuy intention of giving it to him. They did
not vote it to Morton at that time because he
was not there. The other base ball men
wanted to see him and have a talk with him
about his prospects before closing the deal.
The weakest point in the tight made
by Dave Rowe and 'some of the men who
have been espousing the cause of Morton is
that they made a personal tight ou Hash.
The barou has been moderate in '.his partic
ulur. He has said nothing about his oppo
nents, either in Minneapolis or at the meet
ings in Chicago, so far us known. He has
not given up the tight yet. lie said yester
"I intend to secure the franchise and put a
team into Minneapolis this season if I C4ti

ing to foul tactics. The statement that lam

loading it onto some one el>e is false in every
particular. I like Minneapolis, I have many

that. l am interesied in several invesmeuts of

Airy Persiflage About Tom Lowry
ami the National Convention.
The New York Sun exhibits uo symptoms
of letting up on Minneapolis in connection
with the convention. Thomas Lowry— the
Sun, by the way.spells it "Lowery," altnough
Thomas is oue of the most genial, beaming.
sunsniny men on carth — is in the East now.
In chronicling his arrival at a New York ho
tel the Sun of last Thursday gave vent to
some more spleen against Minueapolis. It
"Tom Lowery, who carries Minneapolis
around in his waistcoat pocket, and \7hose
mellifluous blarney induced the Republican
national committee to select the Floor City
of the Northwest as the spot for the next
national convention. came to town iast ni^ht.
"Aceotdlng to Mr. Lowery. when he ap
peared before the committee in Washington,
Minneapolis could accommodate s-ix na
tional conventions on the s-tme day, and
you wouldn't kuow they were In town. The
hotels, according to the flowing oratory of
the Northwest, were away ahead of the cen
tral part for size, and quite as airy. All the
hotels in New Bork city could be dropped
into the great hotel of Minneapolis like a
pebble in a pockeibook.
"From that day to this the wires have been
kept hot by New York Republicans beseech
ing Tom Lowry to redeem his promises and
give them the promise of some place to sleep
during convention week. Gen. i/larfcson and
the members of the national committee who
voted for Minneapolis have themselves kept
the wires singing, asking where they were
to be put. I) wight Lawrence has secured
thirty-eight rooms for New Vork"s 118 dele
gate.- wuo certainly must Le En Minneapolis.
The camp followers have the prospect ot
sleeping on stoops."
The Sun also says that Mr. Lowry was
told the experience ot J. D. Richardson, the
Democratic national comtDitteeman from
lowa. Mr. Richardson, who owns a news
paper in Dcs Moines, claims that he coula
not set a satisfactory answer to his request
for accommodations for his newspapjr rep
resentatives during the Republican conven
tion in Minneapolis until he threat
ened that his vc.'e in the na
tional committee would be cast to
keep the Democratic convention away from
St. Paul if his request were not accorded more
courteous treatment. Mr. Richardson, ac
cording to the Sun. claims tint he was told
be could have a whole floor as soon as his
threat was received In Minneapolis. That
story did not change Mr. Lowry'a opinion
ihat the Democrats are responsible for
spreading the reports about the inadequacy
of Minneapolis hotel space.
WHAT PILLS BURY SAYS.
He Gives Interesting Facts About
the Option Bill.
Charles A. Piilsbury is home again, after a
month's übsence in the East. He was inter
viewed yesterday on his opinion of and con
nection with the famous Washburn option
bill. He was a sworn friend to the object
sought by the bill, he said, and always had
been. Ke could not see how statements to
the contrary could have been made, for he
had a'wuvs been s£ frank in his sentiments.
He considers the new bill an improvement
over the original and it will undoubtedly
work good to everybody, excepting- the com
mission merchants who are doing the grain
gambling. He expressed himself further as
It would especially work in the interest of
Minneapolis, because it would bring a large
portion of whatever speculation there was
111 grain to this market, as. according to the
provisions of the bill, all speculation must
be primarily based on absolute owners-hip of
the wheat. It could not fail to affect the
farming interests, because it would take a
load, running from 100.0W.U.K) to 2;v.0;0,C0)
bushels of wheat, from the market, which is
always th»re of dead shori wheat. In short,
the effects of the bill would be to largely
diminish the number of people who were
selling wheat, and. iv my humble opinion, it
would largely increase the number of buyers
The bill does not cutoff speculative buying
It cuts off speculative selling.
GOUGH'S ANSWER PILED.
He Charges That His Wife Coir
mttted Adultery on Several Oc
Some time ago Mn<rgie Gou?h brought suit
against Hugh Gough. charging cruelty. Hugh
nled bis Hnswer yesterday, and in addition to
denying the charge of cruel ty.mftkes his wife
out a very bad woman. Gough says he is a
hard working man, being employed in the
barns of the street raiiwav company. His
duties are such that he has to leave home
early in the morning and return lute in the
evening. While he was avvav, he alleges, she
admiued gentlemen friends lo the house and
committed adultery with them. The answer
alleges, in proof, that Fred Gibbs entered the
Gough house soon after Gough left on the
morning of Dec. "JO, 1831, and remained until
time for Gough to return at uicht. He also
charges that George Ballon and William Bis
chilis remained with her several times.
While he was away Gough says she neglected
the chilJie:-. Once she left the house and
did not reiurn until late at night. It was in
December.uud the children were left without
food or fire.
Gough also asks for the divorce and the
custody of the children. The case will at
tract considerable attention when it is tried,
as it induces several "racy" features.
A Peculiar Fire.
A fire which was attended by certain sus
picious circumstances took place Sunday
night in the two-story building, 1128 Twenty
fourth avenue north, the lower floor of
which is occupied by David Harley as a gro

his family as living apartments. The build
ing took tire about 6:30, while Mrs. Harley
and her two children were at church, but the
flames were extinguished with a loss of less
than 5150. An investigation proved that the
tire started from an overheated stovepipe.
Between land 'i o'clock yesterday morning
the department was again called to the same
place, but in spite of every effort the entire
