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

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

Itae Clever Player Gets a Second
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
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.
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.
St. Luke's Parish Handsomely En

the season occurred last evening at the
residence of Edward McKinney, 854

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,

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
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
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.

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

Soraejofthe Queer Characters
Found About the Insti
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
"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

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

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

The Dangers That Menace a
Life of Expos
"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
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.
