Whole Street Force Fired. The city engineer notified the board of uulMic works that he had received a communication from the comptroller .showing that $154,882.70 had been ex pended from the street sewer and bridge land for the year ls-.fi, and that no more bills or pay rolls could be passed, as the appropiation w;is limited to $150,000. The city engineer explained that the bills and pay rolls passed through his office for the year amounted to $142 - 913.23, leaving a balance of #7,000, which he supposed to be available. «1 he. state ment of the. comptroller being to the contrary, however, he had discharged all of the force, including the men em ployed to sweep. Aid. Copeland said something would have to be done to keep the streets.side walks and sewers in order, and he of fered a resolution that 4s,ooo be appro priated from the general fund to be used by the engineer as a contingent lu iul for the purpose of protecting the streets and sidewalks of the city. ' Aid. Montgomery doubted the ri^ht of the council to pass such a resolution, and asked to hear from the corporation attorney. That official said tlie facts were that the city engineer had dis charged all the street foice, owing to there beine no money to pay them. The city comptroller was asked to give the council light in view of the resolution of Aid. Copeland. The comp troller said all he could say was the in formation in his communication to the engineer. On motion of Aid. Franklin the resolution, together with the com munications lroin the comptroller and engineer, was referred to the committee on ways and means with instructions to report some plan of action at a special meetinir of the board to be held Friday evening.

It would only cost £700, he said, to make the display. The ways and means committee will consider the proposition.

The reception given Sol Smith Rus , sell on Monday night was repeated last night, when he appeared in "Peaceful Valley." He was repeatedly called be fore the curtain, and, after the first act was compelled to make a speech, which he did iv his own inimitable way. The play as a whole is presented very much as it was last season. Mr. Russell ' remains the same awkward, entertain ing, simple Hosea Howe. Miss Minnie Eadcliffe's Virgle Hand is a much more' finished and graceful production than it was last year. Earle Stirling as Jack Farqubar is, clever, and R. F. Rutledgo shows great promise as Charley Rand. The rest of the players are satisfactory, but not especially worthy of note. • The house was crowded, and the en thusiasm of the audience was a flatter ing proof of Mr. Russell's lasting popu larity iv St. Paul. The engagement closes tonight with "Peaceful Valley." "A Poor Relation" is the bill fox today's matinee. Rolandjßeed, who appears here Thursday ana balance of the week in his great laugh ing success, "Lend .Me Your Wife," brings with him one of the best farce comedy com panies now on the roml. He has just litished an enormous engagement in Boston and New York city, where he has met with the in dorsement of both press and public. In his company, besides Miss Isadore Hush, who is considered the best-dressed and handsomest young leading lady in this country, is Alias- Irene Everett, a daughter of Senator Everett, of California, and granddaughter of the late Gen. Meade, the hero of Gettysburg; also an old St. Paul favorite, Mrs. Mary Myers, who gained many friends for her artistic imper sonations in the stock company of the Peo ple's theater, three years ago. .Mr. Reed hits not appeared in this city lor three years, aud the indications are that his season will be a great comedy success. DESPITE PARENTS' FROWNS. A Seventh Ward Case of Love Laughing at Locksmiths. Robert A. Dawson, a cable car con ductor, and Isabella G. Ferguson were married a day or so ago. The marriage created some surprise among the friends of the bride, it being quite unexpected and against the wishes of her relatives. Miss Dawsoß is a young - and hand some girl, and has been attending the high school and living with relatives on Laurel avenue. Riding on the cars to and from school the couple became acquainted, and, despite efforts made to breaK up the match, the young couple obtained a license and were wedded. Congratulations are being showered on the bride and groom, and it is ex pected the stern relatives will era long, extend their congratulations. ON LINCOLN AVENUE. St. Luke's Parish Handsomely En tertained. .'•'-■' . One of the most pleasing events of the season occurred last evening at the residence of Edward McKinney, 854 Lincoln avenue. It was an informal gathering of the members and friends of St. Luke's parish, and amply repaid those in, attendance by the rare enter tainment furnished. Music, both vocal and instrumental, added a charm to the evening's entertainment, and a sub stantial repast, set forth by the host and his charming wife, rounded up a rare, church sociable.

Something- Like an Agree ment on the Vexed Street Car Matter. ' The Double Track Line to the Lake to Be Ready June 1, 1893. Stryker Avenue Extension* Despite Franklin, Goes Over Again. The committees from the common council and chamber of commerce held a conference with Thomas Lowrv, the street railway magnate, yesterday morning, and something like a definite understanding resulted. The council was lepresented by Assemblymen Wol terstorlf aud Van Siyke ami" Aid. Zim merman and Franklin. The chamber of commerce delegation included Messrs. Driscoll, McKibbin, Hackett, Lindeke, Merrill and "Williams. The attendance, aside from the gen tlemen mentioned, was large, almost every part of the city being represented by committees or individuals, all anxious to see their street car facilities in creased. Mr. Lowry was accompanied by Vice President Goodrich, and the ground gone over in big talks at previous meet ings was again discussed. The follow ing propositions recently submitted by the council committee to Mr. Lowrv were read : In, Proposition*. First— The city to Rive Mr. Lowry the priv ilege of attractions at Como for a term of fifteen years, provided he constructs a double track to Como. Second-To chanpe the cable line on East street to an electric line, and to con nect at Wabasha street, bo as to make it a continuous line from the harvester works to Fort SnoWing. Third— That Mr. Lowry be released from bunalntr the Stryker avenue line at present Fourth— Dispensing with the building; of the Maria avenue line to the mcunds uutil a park is located. Filth— Tv'o curtailment of the present trans ter system unless to improve the same Sixth— That the Como avenue line run around the loop. Seventh— That cars be run every hour to t oi t Snelline without change of cars. As to the fust proposition Mr. Van Slyke said he was in favor of the city building the resort at Como. It would only require about $25,000. and this amount would come out of the park board fund. He also suggested the line should be built out Como avenue in stead of Front street, and on Union and McKenty avenues. Mr. McKil>t>in thought the first ques tion to be settled was whether the com pany would build to Como. The route could be decided upon later. Mr. Dris coll said the joint committee had agreed to allow Mr. Lowry to put in attrac tions under the terms of a proposition to give him fifteen years' exclusive privileges. He could not see why these points were to be brought up again to delay final settlement. Ulr. town- Views. Mr. Lowry was asked to say what he would do in the matter, fie began by staling that the street railway company had no money to build the line and pay for putting in the attractions. The privileges, he said, would not pay for themselves and' his experience at Lake Harriet had taught him that the whole plan would be a losing investment. The line, he said, would pay during three months of the year, but on the business of the year round would be bound to lose money. The company, he insisted, could not build the Como line unless the city would make some concessions in the transfer system, or allow some of the other lines iv the city which aid not pay to be cut off. The company, he argued, had lived up to every one of its agreements excepting in the matter of the Slryker avenue line, but now the city wanted too many concessions. The transfer system in both cities, he said, was an outrage upon the company, and should never have been agreed to. It was out of the question to ask the rail way company to put in the attractions at Como. It already had a large lloat ing debt, as all the bankers knew, and there were no funds for any such pur pose. Mr. Cochran then asked Mr. Lowry if the company would build the line in ease the city would furnish the attrac tions, and he replied that it would. The following resolution was then formu lated : Resolved; That this committee recommend the acceptance on part of the city of .Mr l.owry's proposition with regard to a line to I'omo park, viz. : That if the city will build a pavilion and maintain it. and" other attrac tions, moli a* :nii?U'. boats and electric lignta -aiisiiitiory to the park board and street railway company, and the street railway com pany be prnnted a proper right of wav throtiKh the park, satisfactory to it and to the city, the .company will build auci equip, not later than Juno 1, ISO.'i, a doubie-traek line to i'onio park, and continuously operate it throughout the year in such manner as suf ficiently to accommodate the travel, and will conuectSHid line with its general system by its passage around thp loop and transfers to it from its uther lines, provided that the pn viiion be finished aud the attractions fur nished by that time. . ' ~ Fractions Franklin. Aid. Franklin opposed the resolution, saying that every time he met with the committee changes were made by Mr. Lowry in the proposition. He did not believe the city should make so many concessions, and was not in favor of the plan to have the city pay for improve ments at Como. The 'resolution was adopted by a vote of the council and chamber of commerce committee, being opposed only by Aid. Franklin and Zimmerman. Mr. Lowry readily agreed to the terms of the resolution. On motion of Mr. Lindeke a resolution was adopted, asking the park board to appropriate $23,000 for, the improve ments at Como and maintenance. It was decided to let the proposition chang ing the Seventh street cable to an elec tric line and running cars from the liar-, vester works to Fort Suelling - rest for the present. Mr. Lowry said these mat ters would eventually be carried out, but it was not practicable at present. The committee agreed that the company need not put in the Maria and'Stryker avenue lines until July 1, 1893. The agreement was also made to ask the council to vacate a portion of the road way on the Selby avenue hill for the purpose of operating a safety device for t:ie cable cars. PEET TO PRESIDE.

SUPREME COURT OPENED. Over Three Hundred Attorneys Interested in the Calendar. Over three hundred attorneys from various sections of the state were pres ent in the house of representatives at the capitol yesterday morning when Marshal Uuiteau proclaimed the open ing of the October term of the suu.eme court of Minnesota. The court then an nounced that K. N. Uuiteau had been reap pointed marshal of the court, and tlm regular business of the session was commenced. First came applications for a rehearinir in the cases ot Lingren vs. Nilson, Tilleny vs. Wolverton and Lowry vs. Akers. respectively. The applications in all three cases were denied, and the judges proceeded to fix the dates for hearing the cases on the new calendar. This occupied over two hours, and all the time the "busy lawyers with end less tongues" were flitting hither and thither consulting, debating and agree ing upon the time most convenient for mutual interests when they .could pre sent their cases to the court. In the afternoon six cases were sub mitted on briefs, and today motions will be heard in twelve minor cases. The supreme court also handed down a decision yesterday iv a case of last term, that of the Merchants' National Bank of St. Paul, respondent, vs. George McNair, as receiver of the First National liauk of Anoka. appellant. The suit was brought by the Merchants' National to recover $10,000 on notes given the Anoka bank by Maria B. Snell and discounted by the Merchants' National. The Anoka bank protested the payment of the notes on the grounds that they were not liable for the action of the cashier, who indorsed them,claim ing that he had no authority to make an official indorsement on behalf of the bank, and that, in view of Pratt's con duct in indorsing it, the note showed on its face that it appeared to be his in dividual note. The courts hold that that the bank is liable for the acts of the cashier performed in the usual man ner. Following is tlie syllabus in tlie case The title of au indorsee of negotiable paper for value purchased before due cannot be impeached unless he has actual or constructive notice of facts such as to subject him to the imputa tion of fraud or bad faith in the transac tion. Where the cashier of a bank, who as sumed to be acting as such, applied to another bank in the usual course of business to discount a note produced by him and regularly indorsed by him in his official capacity, held, that neither the fact that he appeared to be the payee and first indorsee and his bank the second indorser. nor that the avails of the note were received by him per sonally, were conclusive evidence that the indorsement of his bank was un authorized or for his own accommoda tion. Order denying a new trial is affirmed. VANDERBVItOU, J. THE DISTRICT COURT Term Now Under Way— Various l.c'al Affairs.

THAT OLD REFRAIN, "Over the Hills to the Poor house," as Sung by the Board of Control. A Select Party Visits That Impressive, if Not His toric Spot. Everything" in Apple-Pie Or der Around This Ward House of the City. Soraejofthe Queer Characters Found About the Insti tution. Yesterday was a great day at the city aud county almshouse. It was the an nual inspection of the board of control, county commissioners and the great mayor and common council of St. Paul, for veiy great these people were in the imaginations or the inmates. The dis tinguished party left at 1 p. m. on a Wis consin Central train and devoted the afternoon to looking about the place. Ihe board of control takes great pride in us management of the charitable in stitutions under its charge. During the past year some important improve ments have been made at the alms house. A new electric light plant.iaun dry,new engines and a lot of new plumb ing have been put in. the total expense being $4,700. The house is now re garded as a model of convenience, com fort and economy, and it certainly very neat in appearance. Mayor Wrisrht had never visited the place, and expressed his surprise and admiration in terms which made the hearts of the board of control jump into their throats. Aid. Hickman had seen the aluishouse which stood where the state fair grounds are now, but he had not seen the new one. He was also surprised and delighted. Many other membors of the common council and otner visitors gave expres sions of commendation. Every thing was in ship sliape, thanks to the superintendent, J. L. JJendry. and why should not the visitors be surmised and delighted? was the question which President Kerwin, of the board of control, ?eemed to ask himself every little while. The alms house stands off on the prairie like a mansion, and can be seen for miles away. It will also bear A Closer Inspection, and looks so inviting outside and in that one almost wonders if the inmates don't thank their stars that they are paupers. It is a three-story brick, 150 by 100 feet, ground dimensions. It was built in 1885, the year the old farm and house were abandoned, at a cast of ?".7,000. The cost of the new farm was $00 per acre. The house has a capacity to accommodate comfortably 123 in mates, and has now <W occupants. But, grand and inviting as is this mansion which is dedicated to the pau pers, and much as the visitors admired it, it was not a whit more interesting to all than were the occupants. There was the unpleasant, the sad and the humor ous side to tne subjects who stood about in neat ginghams and blue drillings, looking at the distinguished guests with mouths open. '-Who are these, and how did they come to be here?" was the question every guest was asking to him self. "Granny, how long have you been here?"' asked one of the visitors of a very aged woman who was squinting and blinking in her efforts to see them, and inunchiuff with her toothless jaws at something. The old woman was quite de<if. and the question was repeat ed in a loud tone. "I dunno," srid she. "1 ben year so long 1 forgit wen I wusn't here." This was Mrs. Nixon, \vell|kno\vn to • all the early-day settlers in this region. She was placed in the alrashouse in 1870, and has been there continuously since then. She is ninety-two years old, and the mother of wealthy sons, who are abundantly able to support her; at least that is what the members of the board say. She was a victim of drink, [ and her children tried very hard to in duce her to reform, but reform she would not, and at last they abandoned her to become a public charge. ■In another room, upon the floor, was the prettiest little girl of two years playing with a snow-white kitten. The scene was touching, and one of the vis itors took the child and kitten up into his arms. The little one could just tell her name and say a few cute things. It was the child of Katie Coleman, who created a sensation in St. Paul three years ago by attempting to jump from th.c Carpenter look-out, with intent to end her existence and conceal her dis grace. Queer Inmate*. There were Aunt betsy and Uncle Pete, a fussy old couple of vagabonds, who seemed to be so much more fussy than usual when in each other's pres ence that one might suspect they were ■ in love. v • There were Aunt Nancy and|Unde Jake, who seemed also to act queerly when in each other's presence. They looked too old to entertain a thought of love, but when does mankind become 100 old to entertain cupid? ' • There; was Aunt Betsy, who seemed to be without a lover, "She was con tinually flurrying around, as though the . care of the whole household was resting upon her; and she really seems to think that she is the mainstay ip the manage ment of the affairs. She is humored in her delusion, even though most of time she is in the way. She is so industrious in tendency that oue cannot resist the desire to inquire how she became an in mate. luhevcase.it was a drunken husband. Nine-tenths of the inmates owe their fate directly or indirectly to drunken ness. •I To support these paupers it costs $2 a head per week. The" farm is . not yet ! self-supporting, but, the board hopes the I day is not far distant when it will be. ; '1 he male paupeis do about all the work on the farm; but in the house the female J paupers are of little use, and most of ' the work is done with hired help. • In former times tramps were accepted ! at the institution, but now the candi j date for admission must be an actual resident of the county. WIFE OP HER HUSBAND. The Ijecture Coming Prom Mrs. M Pere Hyacintbe. The lecture which was to have been given this afternoon at the People's church by Emilie Hyacinthe Loyson, the wife of Pere Hyacinthe. has been postponed till Thursday evening, at the same place. The distinguished lecturer is traveling through America with her son. a young- man nineteen years of age. for the purpose of enlisting Amer ican sympathy in the cause of evan gelization in France. She says: "France came generously "to the res cue of this great republic in her struggle for life and freedom; now we come with the same affectionate confidence to ask your help in this great combat for re ligious and political liberty in France— for not only is Christian faith in immi nent peril, but our republic is also iv danger. •'Two things are necessary for France, the tree preaching ot the Gospel throughout the country and the separa tion of church and state. Adcl to this end wo earnestly ask our American friends for prompt and generous help iv this our day of distress and peril." The circumstances of her marriage to Pere Hyacinthe are so well known, and her ability so famed, that her advent is a matter of no little importance. She is being entertained iv Minneapolis, and it is altogether probable that her; stay in .St. I'aul.will be not only a religious and literary event, but a social event as I well. I LIFE ON THE RAIL. The Dangers That Menace a Life of Expos ure. "When any one has suffered for eight years as I have done, he becomes able to np preciate the blessing of relief from his mis ery."' These are the words ot Mr. Edward F. Kidder, of 9)1 Rice street, who for the past two years has been a conductor for the St. Paul Street Railway company, and, while a young man. is looked upon as one of the most relinble and respon>ible man wearing the uniform of the company. He is but MR. EDWARD P. KIDDKIJ. twenty-two years of age. but for eiijht of that number life was anything but pleasant to him. This is the story he tells: "For eight years I had catarrh in one of its worst forms. When I first noticed the dis ease it did not bother me to a very sreat ex tent, but gradually 1 grew worse and worse, until my life was made miserable. My chest had a heavy weight upon it and a paiii there that sometimes was unbearable, and used to keep me awake at night. . But this was not ail. I had a constant headache, and could not breathe through my nose, which seemed to be completely stooped up. Sitting up, lying down or walking, I was in constant misery. Then I bewail to cough, and coughed for hours, especially in the night time. I had also the hawking and spitting that ac companies catarrh and is so disgusting. I tried all the patent medicines in the world, I believe, and finally my attention was called to the Copeland Medical Institute. I began treatment there Sept. 2. Now my headache and paiu in the chest has lett me. Ido not cough at all, and I can breathe through my nose with perfect freedom. I do not hesi tate to say that Drs. Copeiand and Hunt are a boon to the community, and for me they have done wonders. TREATMENT BY MAIL.
