A DOLLAR A DAY CARRIED. CITY RELIEF COMMITTEE SAYS THAT IS ENOUGH . TO PAY THE IJNKJIPIiOYED. Hart Says That When the Labor Was to Be Paid in Provisions -800 Registered. When It Was Decided to lay Cash - Over 2,000 Registered— One Dollar the Market Value of Work. A committee from the citizens' relief committee, and the council committee on unemployed labor held a short ses sion yesterday afternoon. The matter ' discussed was whether the wages to be : paid the unemployed should be $1.50 or Slp^rday. Some months ago the city appropriated £9,000 to be used in caring for the unemployed, and at the time the council placed the sum at the disposal of .a . committee consisting of three members from each branch of the coun cil, the mayor, city comptroller and city engineer. By resolution the council also directed that the wages of the men should be at the rate of f l..Vj per nay. the men to work only half time. Tiie $9,000 having been exhausted, and .111 additional §5,000 having been placed to the credit of the fund, the citizens' com- uiittee decided that it would ue advis able to reduce the amount paid per day to Jl, and to urge this action the meet inn yesterday was called. Present at the conference were Mayor Wright, As seniuiymen Daly, Johnson and Kear don. Aid. ■Warren and Zimmerman, City Comptroller McCardy, City En gineer Kundlett, and Messrs. Hart. Noyes. Castle and Wheelock from the citizens' committee. H. 11. Hart explained the position of the citizens' committee, and argued that work carried on by the city under the circumstances should be paid for at less than the market price for labor. The amount to be disbursed would employ M per cent more men at ?1 than at $1.50, and as the work to be done was really in the way of charity, and not abso lutely necessary, there was no need of making the price for labor higher than the market wages. If the waged were *1 per day, he thought the demands for work wouid be much less. As a proof of his argument. Mr. Hart said that when the bureau was first opened the understanding was that $1 per day, payable in groceries and fuel, would be the compensation. Under these condi tions about soo persons registered, but as soon as it was known that $1.50 in cash would be paid the enrollment boomed to nearly 2,000. Capt. Castle said he was always in favor ot high wages to laboring men and hoped to see the time when the most common and nmorant laborers could earn big pay. It was not, he thought, the duty of the city n> furnish employment to men out of work, and, under the circumstances, the money should be made to go as far as possible. The payment of $1.50 per day was above the* market price, and the person so t-mployed became one of a privileged class. In the interests of the taxpayers who hay« to bear the ex pense, and also so as to uot compete with the price of labor, the amount paid by the committee should be reduced to ?l per day. He anticipated that at the price mentioned it would be much easier to collect by private subscription. Mr. Wfoeelock thought the payment of high wages to the unemployed had a tendency to educate a class of people to dependence on the city. It also sug gested the idea of public improvements being carried on without regard to cost, and this was entirely wrong. The men employed by the park board hud only been paid $1 per day. Assemblyman Johnson said that while the iiii-u on the work at Como had been paid $1 a day, at the end of the month they earned more money than the men at work on the streets, owing to their working continuously, while the street men worked one week at $1.50 per day and were laid off two weeks. Mayor Wright said he would be in favor of the men getting §2 per day, but this was not possible, and he contended that tne SI per day plan was the best under the circumstances. On a motion made by Assemblyman Daly to have the price fixed at $1 per day, all the members of the committee voted in favor of such action, and the necessary resolution will be recom mended to pass at the meeting of the board oi aldermen Tuesday next. COPELiAND DISPLiEASED. The Mayor Makes an Appoint- meiit Not Liked. The joint court house and city hall committee met in regular monthly ses sion yesterday. A number of bills, including the custodian's pay roll ior November, were allowed. The commit tee on grounds and buildings reported that the revolving storm doors will be in place in a few days. The report of the custodian that he had transferred the gardener, John L. Hotfman, to the position of fireman, aud J. P. White as nisrfat watchman, caused some feeling and warm discussion, but the appoint ments were conQrmed. M. J. Daly did uot want Hoifmau put in the place without conferring with him as chair mau of the committee on fuel and heat luz, and Aid. Copeland said that it was understood that when Mr. Dougherty was discharged for the sake of economy he was to be reinstated in Drefer.-nce to giving the place to any one else. The committee on grounds and buildings were given power to put a radiator in the room in the attic used as a biue print loom. THE JOBBERS' DIXNEK. Second Trade Dinner of the Com mercial Club.

The closing day of November reg istered the coldest weather of the sea son. It was also the coldest day known in November since 1887, when, on the 28th, the temperature fell to 20 degrees below zero. The weather bureau reports the coldest notch reached this time as 15 below at midnight, and 16 below early yesterday morning. A number of outside thermometers registered as low as 18 below. Last evening Observer Lyons predicted that by this evening a moderately warm wave would reach St. Paul. The fore runner of this wave seemed to have reached St. Paul last evening, the tem perature standing from 2 to 5 degrees above zero. Mr. Lyons said that a "low," which means "warm," had formed in the vicinity of Cal gary, and that this . was moving eastward and would moderate the fold weather prevailing here. He thought that probably today, though liit- mercury might stand several de trives ao.»ve zero, the atmosphere would seem very chilly— apparently as cold as j'u.iUrd.iy. But by this evening, he pr<-<fic:ual, it would be appreciably .warmer. 1 hat the warm wave is moving east ward is indicated by the fact that at Helena yester.lay the mercury rose to 38 above z to. and at other Western points considerably above. However, me wave lias considerable cold weather to encouiiifciou its journey, for at Win nipeg yesterday it was- 24 below zero, and at St. Vincent 14 below. The warm wave may catch a bad cold before it reaches us. COXSIGXMi io HKST. The Funeral of the fjnte William Li. Banning, Yesterday afternoon the funeral of the late William L. Banning was held from the family residence. 75 Wilkin street. The house was tilled with old settlers and many of the younger ven eration. The mourners numbered all the members of the Banning family, the children who live in other stales having arrived in time; The casket containing the remains of the departed rested upon supports in the center of a large room, and upon and about it were strewn beautiful floral tributes of loving friends and relatives. It was a square casket, covered with black broadcloth, metal-lined, silver ex tension handles, and lined inside with black silk— a plain and rich encasement —and in it rested the silent form, with the face and chest exposed to view. Mr. Banning seemed to be only sleeping: indeed, it was difficult to realize he was no more. Rev. Dr. Egbert, of the House of Hope, read passages from various chapters of the Bible, and deliv ered a brief address, in which he dwelt upon the accomplishments of a worthy life. He said that al! present knew the deceased personally better than he did, but Mr. Banning had made a record which was as clear to the stranger as to the personal acquaint ance. It war. a life not wasted, but put to good use. and now he lays it down to live ;n the memory of a world of frieuds and citizens. A quartette from the St. Paul Choral society, sang two selections, one of which was, "The Kindly Light." The casket was borne from the house to the hearse, and again from tiie hearse to the grave, by Samuel Stickney, Dr. J . 11. Stewart. A. E. Horn, Warreu Carpenter, diaries Clark and Aiihur Gauthier.

Lares Changes His Testimony a Little, Making It Stronger Than Before — New Witness Testifies to Seeing Fleary and Three Others in Front of the Bank. At the opening of the court yesterday atltta. in. the same panoramic scene was presented as in the most exciting days of the first trial. The galleries were crowded with th« same fchabitues as heretofore, and the seats on the court floor proper were filled comfort ably. Tiie prisoner, Fleury, sat in his accustomed chair, and immediately be hind him were seated the three code feudants, all in a row. Attorney Erwin appeared for the first time in the pres ent trial, and took his usual place. Upon the opening of the court, John L. Townley was called to the witness stand. His testimony was about the same as that given on the first trial. He testified, iv brief, that as lie was going into the bank that morning he saw a man standing on the street by the lamp post or telegraah pole near the bank building, whom he mistook for an old friend named Alexander Komillard, aud was about to accost him, when he dis covered his error, lie got a good look at his face, aud identified the man as the defendant at the bar. At lhis point xVttDruey Johns moved to strike out the entire testimony of the witness, which nioiion was denied and au exception noted. He then proceeded to give the witness a rattling cross-ex amination. Towniey said he first talked of tne matter to an officer; but some days afterwards, and before the exami nation in the municipal court, he had a talk with Uie county attorney. But he couldn't remember that he had told the county attorney that he wasn't abso lutely certain that Fleury was the man he saw that day. "I did say it was possible 1 was mistaken; I cannot meas ure tlie degrees of certainty, but 1 am quite certain that Fleury was the man. 1 am so certain about this that if 1 did not believe it 1 wouia testify here. Alex ander ltomillard. whom 1 mistook for Fleury, is more weather-browned than defendant. He generally dresses well, l>ut doesn't generally wear a silk hat. He wears a mustache, but uct generally a beard." Kinaldo Lares was the next witness. He told how he and the colored porter, Jacobs, took the gunnysaek containing $20,0J0 in gold from the Merchants' National over to the First National bank and deposited it on the floor, and after opening tin; sack took the four bass, laid them upon the window Ledge. and had taken the yellow paper bank certificate from his vest pocket, and com menced reading it— his elbow and arm resting ai the time upon the gold sacks. Tha sack had been first laid on the floor between the two windows. There were some persons at both windows doing business at the time; didn't remember their names, and didn't see an3 r mes sengers from other banks there at that time. Jacobs was standing at the post between the two windows. There were other persons at the time at the window doing business, and that was the reason he did not hand in the money then. The last bag was the one that was taken. He felt something move under his arm, and turning around saw a man with tlie bag of money in his left liana ami put. tlug it under his coat. Ha d seen the man before [he pointed to defendant]; started after him and followed so the door, and then a man stepped in front of him; he had a revolver, which he had drawn, in his right hand. He ran down Jackson street to the cor ner of Fourth street: looked up and down, but couldirt see anybody. He ieturued to the bank and paid in the balance ol the money. He went to the Merchants' National bank; couldn't find Mr. Seym our, and went bactt to the First National hank and found him there. The bag was stolen at exactly 11:30 a. m. The man that stopped him was heavy-set; had no whiskers except a mustache; he had a brown coat on; next saw the man in jail. He said he turned full around and saw the man full in the face, before he started for the door. This is about the only change in his testimony from what he stated in the first trial. The cross-examination by Erwin called witness' attention to the testi mony he gave in the police court and in the first trial, as to the different statements made about seeing the scar on Fleury's face when he ran off with the bag. He now thought he remem bered him (Fleury) better with whiskers as he now has them than he did when he saw him without them. At this point Butler took a hand, and objections and exceptions followed fast. Erwiu took the witness again over the scene In the bank on the day or the rob bery. Lares said that when he saw Fleury putting the sack of gold under his coat he didn't grab him because he was too fur away. He put down the yellow paper certiGcate aud drew his revolver and started after him. While readiug the paper he trot a good glance at the man. lie denied saying to the porter, Jacobs: "Did you see that 55,00u go?" lie might have said it, but if he did it was to make him open his eyes. Continuing, he could name no person he pushed against in his rush to the door; he made no scream or outcry during the whole affair, and his sole re ply to the lawyer's pressing question was: "It is not my nature to make out cries."' He didn't recollect any conver sation with Niehauser, or that the lat ter had told him he was one sack short. He made no outcry to any policeman. Attorney Erwin called his attention to different statements which he had made to reporters aud others, all of whicu lie denied. AFTERNOON SESSION. Lares was recalled ana asked by At torney Erwin whether on the day after the robbery he had not been shown cer tain photographs or negatives? lie re plied in the affirmative. This leu to several other questions as to statements made to McGinn aud others as to his failing to recognize the man that took the gold, and also as to the size of the man who stopped him near the steps, who weighed 200 pounds and was a tall, heavy-set man. In conclusion, he denied talking with a man named Getschie, who lives in South St. Paul, in reference to the bank robbery. C. D. Gall was the next witness. His testimony was the same as on the first trial, and was to the effect that he had seeu Fleury in the First National bank near the window. Charles W. Douglas was a new_wit ness in the case. He is a painter, living on Concord street, West side. He testi fied to seeing defendant, and then others, standing in tront of the First National bank on the 14th of August at a little after 11 o'clock. He was closely cross-examined, and admitted seeing photographs and negatives of the men before he identified them. He last saw the men at 11:15 that day; they were engaged in conversation when he last saw them. Rinaldo Lares recalled. "I recognize Mr. Getzky," said lie. Did you say iv the car coing down that night that you didn't see the man and you could uot recognize him, it was clove so quick? [Objection by state. Sustained and exception noted.] C. E.
