Board of Aldermen and Assembly
Held Meetings, and, After Dis
cussing the Budget, Adjourned
it to Tuesday Evening — Assem

Appropriation Considerably.
The board of aldermen and assembly
met last evening, but nothing of partic
ular importance was disposed of. The
aldermen listened to the report of the
special committee to whom was referred
the tax budget, and then, without dis
cussing the budget, laid the matter over
to the regular meeting next Tuesday
evening. The assembly spent an hour
in talk about various items, and also
laid the budget over to an adjourned
meeting to be held on* the same evening.

The annual report of the water board
wassent to the committee on printing.
A petition was received from Rush
B. Wheeler and fifty others, asking that
the street railway service west of Lex
ington avenue, on the Grand avenue, be
remedied. The petition sets forth that
the service is unreasonable, and inade
quate, and asks that cars be run every
ten minutes. The matter was referred
to the president of the board and alder
man of the Seventh ward.
The bill of M.J. Egan for services
as fireman at the market house for a
couple of months, amounting to 882, was
returned by the city attorney with the
statement that there was no authority
for the employment of such servant.
The report was adopted.
Aid. Markham, "Montgomery, Cullen
and Franklin were appointed members
of the special joint committee to con
sider the proposition to rent the market ■
house for a term of ten years.
The report of the special committee
on the tax budget was handed in and
read by the clerk. Aid. Franklin said
he had nothing to do for the balance of
the evening and he would like to spend
his time iii discussing the budget. He
suggested that the members of both
bodies go into a committee of the whole
and discuss the figures in the budget.
The chair was of the opinion that there
could be no joint meeting of the bodies.
The chair also stated that the corpora
tion attorney had given an opinion that
it takes but a majority of the members
to adopt or reject the report of the com
mittee. Aid. Montgomery moved that
the report be adopted, and Aid. Cope
land seconded the motion. Aid. Mark
ham said he had not given the budget
any attention and would ask that it be
laid over until the next regular meet
ing. This was done, and the aldermen
adjourned. 7
was called to order at 8 o'clock, all the
members with the exception of Mr.
Johnson being present. The tax budget
was taken up on the report of the spe
cial joint committee, and for tha next
hour the budget was discussed in a hop
scotch manner. The only change made,
however, was in reducing the amount
allowed to complete the city hospital
from $42,000 to $30,000. The budget was
then laid over until an adjourned meet
ing to be held oh next Tuesday even
The discussion started by Dr. Hoyt,
health commissioner, protesting against
the action of the committee in reducing
the appropriation for his department
from $12,000 to $10,000. Dr. Hoyt gave
a detailed statement of the work done
by his eleven employes, and said that if
the reduction was made it would result
in the discharge of the persons in
charge of the small-pox hospital and the
inspection at the dumping ground. The
talk, however, had imperceptible effect,
for a motion made by Mr. Van Slyke to
make the appropriation ?12,o»>ij was not
A delegation from the Como and
Warrendale. union was heard on the
question of putting £17,000 in the tax
levy to defray one-third of the cost of
the bridge over the Great Northern
tracks on Como avenue. The speakers
urged that the property owners should
not be obliged to pay even one-third
the cost for the bridge, owing to the
fact tiiat bonds were issued some years
ago for the purpose. It was also urged
that the bridge would benefit the street
railway company more than the public.
A motion to strike out the entire
amount from the budget was lost, only
Messrs. Daly, Reardon and Sandeli vot
tug tor such action. The announce
ment of the vote caused Mr. Daly to
ask if it was strictly a street car com
pany vote.
Mr. Reardon said that while there was
a deal of talk about increasing the
figures in the budget, nothing was said
about a reduction in the amount. •«-..
The city was, he said, paying $40,000
for doing $20,000 worth of work in the
engineer's department, and he believed
the estimate of 130,000 for next year was
too high. The estimate should not be
more than -?*JO,OOO. Dr. Hoyt had stated
that the duty of one of his inspectors
was to look after sewer connections.
If this was so the work was ; well
looked after, for the city en
gineering department had two men
doing the same work, and the building
inspector's department also had a man
on the same tiling. Reardon thought
that if the reform council was to do
anything, as the term implied, it should
begin worn at once. He would agree to
do all the engineering work iv the city
for sor 10 per cent on the total cost of
the work. He then moved : that
the amount allowed in the re
port be cut from 830,000 to
§20,000, and the motion was seconded by-
Mr. Daly. Mr. Lightuer spoke in favor
of the full amount being allowed. The
cut, he said, wouid destroy the efficiency
of the department. Mr. Doran thought
that the force in the department was
entirely too large under the circum
stances and the work done. He moved
that the estimate be made §25,000. Mr.
Reardon said that money had been
wasted in tne engineering department
in the last year and he knew of men
who were carried on the pay rolls when
they were not in the city. Mr.
Lightner said thaf if Mr. Reardon
had charges to make, why not file . them
and let a committee investigate. He
would say that if there was to be any
investigation he wanted it done by some
committee tit which Mr. Reardon was
chairman. To this Mr. Reardon said he

was getting tired of having some .com
mittees conduct investigations. He had
proven to certain committees that the
engineer was paying double prices lor
goods, and men were carried on the pay
rolls when only in the city three days in
the month. Nothing, .however, "had
been done in the matter. The vote to
make the amount: for the engineering
department . $25,000 was lost, only
Messrs. Doran, Daly and Reardon
favoring the cut.'
Mr. Doran then made a talk about
economy being the need of the hour,
and wanted the sum of $42,000 allowed
for completing tne city hospital reduced
to $30,000. Mr. Liglitner said it would
be poor policy not to complete the
building next year. The motion to use
only &50.000 next year was carried,

An Ovation Given Him at Turner
A pleasant farewell reception was
given last night at Turner hall in honor
of Prof. Hermann, the gymnasium in
structor, who has severed his connec
tion with the Turner society as its
authorized instructor. The exercises
consisted of a school exhibition under
the direction of the gymnasium in
structor. It was attractive to seethe
several classes exhibiting their training
in the varied exercises. There were
about 2oo children participating in the
free gymnastics, the calisthenics, the
dumb bells and the wand.- The latter
part of the evening was devoted to
social dancing. Prof. Hermann, although
severing his relations with tne
Turner society, will not leave the
city, but. will conduct a school for
physical culture among children. He
will have tiie use of Turner hall for
such classes as will go there for instruc
tion. There is a movement on foot
looking to the engagement of Prof.
Hermann tor the purpose of giving in
struction in calisthenics in the public
schools, and a large number of people
are in hones that a regular'svsteiu of
exercises shall be introduced into the
city schools under the direction of a
competent instructor. The younger
girls and boys especially take great in
terest in physical exercises, and no one
will doubt the advantage of being sys
tematic in the early physical culture of
the children in the schools. Not only
is this desirable from a standpoint of
developing the physical strength, and
erect figure, but as an incentive to
study and preventative of physical de

Board of Publio Works Engaged
at Reassessing. "7 7
The board of public works yesterday
took up the matter of a reassessment for
grading Third street, from Commercial
stieet to Maple; Canal street, from Ames
to Fourth, and Fourth, from Commercial
to the Duluth right of way. The work
was done in ISSB by J. D. Moran, the
cost being 625.000. The court set aside
the assessment made by the board of
public works as to that part to which
objection was made by property owners.
Property owners on Canal street al
leged they were assessed too much for
the benefits, the assessment being §4.75
per foot. S. J. R. McMillan and O. E.
Holman, representing the property
owners, appeared before the board yes
terday afternoon and made arguments
in favor of making the reassessment
more evenly divided as to the benefits
to the Canal street property. The matter
was adjourned one week.

7 The American Building, Loan and
Investment Company of . Chicago is in
trouble, quite largely owing to a loan of :
$138,000 made on St. Paul Park prop- .
erty. Chicago papers of yesterday say
that the attorney general deter
mine today whether the society shall be
given the statutory sixty days in which to
make good its assets or whether its af
fairs shall be turned over to a receiver.
A conference was held upon the affairs
of the society, at which State Auditor
Gore, Attorney General Moloney, As
sistant Attorney General Schofield,
James N. Young, treasurer, and W. G.
Cooke, attorney of the association, and
Levy Mayer, who has been retained as
cousel for the association, were present
Tho rights of the society under the
statute and its financial condition were
discussed. 7' -^7' 7?7 7 : "TV—
- An answer to the charges made by
the attorney general was submitted. In
substance tho answer denied that the
assets were insufficient for the continu
ance of business and that business was
conducted in an unsafe and illegal man
ner. It said further all loans were now
passed uoon by the board of directors at
tegular meetings and denied the society
was connected with the place of amuse
ment known as the "Grotto." In regard
to the alleged insufficiency of security
on loans at St. Paul Park, the following
was submitted, signed by Joseph Lockey
and agreed to by Edward J. Hodgson,
P. M. Kerst,. A. M. P^abody, Charles
S. Bunker, - C. E. Dickerman, WvA
Miller and Peter Berkey: -
St. Pail. Minn., Dec. 19.— T0 C F
Easton, Chicago: I have frequently
visited* St. Paul. Park, Washington
county, Minn., and have considerable,
acquaintance with the. character of the
place, and with the improvements
which have been made there. The Park
is within a mile and a half of the city
limits below St. Paul, on the Mississippi
river, and has many natural advantages
as to situation. It is the site of quite a
number of substantial buildings, resi
dences and business house*, together
with manufacturing plants. I regard
it as the most prosperous and promising
suburb of this city. 1 would regard as
a fair valuation of lots in said Park at a
time when there is any reasonable
movement in. real estate, say, an aver
age of about .S3OO or §350 a lot.
The St. Paul persons who vouch for
the foregoing appraisal are described
as follows: .;--,*.■
Joseph Lockey is cashier of tho Na
tional German-American bank; Edward
J. Hodgson is president of the Security
Trust company: P. M. Kerst is cashier
ofthe Germania bank; A.M. Peabotiy
is a private banker and mortgage loan
agent; Charles S. Bunker is a general
accountant and examiner; C. E. Dicker
man is vice president of a trust com
pany, director in various banks and;
extensive property owner in St. Paul;
W. A. Miller is assistant cashier of thfe
First National bank; Peter Berkev is
vice president of the St. Paul Fire and
Marine Insurance company and apprais
er of the North western Mutual Life
Insurance company, of Milwaukee. j
The answer admits the cash account
of the society is short 87,000 because
former officers unlawfully appropriated
that amount, and that the expense ac
count was overdrawn, but arrangements
were being made by which he anion nip
illegally withdrawn would bt* returned.
Against this statement, however, was
the finding of the state auditor; who'
visited the property of the society a few
weeks ago. Mr. Gore could not get any
one in St. Paul to estimate the value of
the property. It had virtually no value,
he said, and was not in the maridet at
anything like a good figure. This big
loan and one of $70,000 at Hammond,
Ind., make the assets dwindle down,
when it is considered that the little
town is hardly likely to grow much for
the next ten years. A written agree
ment from M. 1). Miller and Frank P.
Blair was shown in which they offered
to furnish satisfactory security on all
the St. Paul Park loans. But Miller
and Blair, the auditor said, were the
men who manipulated the deal between
the American society and the St. Paul
Park Improvement company.
Attorney Mayer said the society was
solvent and that the filing of a receiver
ship bill would mean ruin. "Put your
own men in here, Mr. Auditor," he con
tinued, "and let them guard the affairs
of the society until the sixty days' grace
have expired."
Mr. Gore said he would leave the mat
ter to the attorney general. The latter
declared that every penny loaned on
the St. Paul Park property would have
to be returned to the stockholders.
"Sham borrowers got the money of
the society on this worthless property,"
he said, "and simply paid it over to
Miller and Blair. This was a fraud,
and every penny has to be made good.
Can you make good that $188,600 loaned
on this property? You must get back
the 810.125 paid to Modiea as salary and
the other salaries. illegally paid to all
officers but the secretary. There was a
loan of $17,000 to Stiliweli, who never
got a cent and whose mortgage was
canceled. 1 cannot give a decision in
this matter today, because 1 must learn
whether the interests of the stockhold
ers will be conserved by the promises to
make good the securities."
"Do you think Marston and Modiea
will pay back the salaries they re
ceived?" asked Attorney Mayer.
"Yes, they will, or go to the peniten
tiary," responded the attorney general
An effort was made by the Globe to
find Messrs. .Miller and Blair iast even
ing, but it was unsuccessful.

Sixty Dollars' Worth of Cigars
Taken From a Wagon. ; ■■;*-?.- {•
AtG o'clock last evening three men
robbed an American Express company
wagon on Minnesota street, between
Fifth and Sixth streets, of a package
containing SCO worth of cigars. The
driver had gone into a store to. deliver a
package, when three young fellows
stepped to the wagon and taking out a
large package disappeared in : the alley
at the side of the Waverly house.. A
pedestrian who was passing and saw
the trick notified the express driver and
a chase was made after the thieves. By
this time they had. jumped a fence and
were out of sight. The police were
notified, and after, a search of the out
houses and barns in the neighborhood
the stolen package was found concealed
iv a wagon. 7 ; ???7??v]~v.; 7?.??^?- ]
The occupants of a house opposite the
scene of the robbery complained to the
police that a few minutes before the
package was taken the same men en
tered their residence, and were gather*
ing, up the coats and cloaks from a
rack in the hall when they were sur
prised. The thieves dropped the cloth
ing and ran, and going across the street
Stopped long enough to take the pack
age from, the express wagon. • A good
description of the trio was given tho
police, but no arrests were made.
Durand Said to Have Been Iden
*»?77 tified by Miller.
'. Early yesterday ' morning Press Dv
rand and John Constance, two young
men, were arrested by Special Detect
ives Gruber and Galvin. The officers
claim, that the prisoners intended to
'bold'them up, but the light from their
.dark .lanterns was a signal to the men
that their victims were detectives and
-they skipped. After a short chase the
detectives succeeded in capturing the
would-be 'robbers. Durand, the police
say, has been identified by Jacob Miller
as one of the two men who assaulted
aud shot him on the night of Dec. 17.
Thomas O'Brien was recently held to
the grand jury as being one ofthe
"twain, and the detectives asserted that
Austin Hoban, who was tried with him,
was the other man. The court dis
charged Hoban, but.as another "pigeon"
has since reported, the detectives are
now certain Durand was with O'Brien
at the. time the attempted robbery and
assault was committed. .-77
Wood Harvester Works Here a
Separate Concern.
The statement of an evening paper
that the Wood Harvester works secured
the stock subscriptions in St. Paul
through misrepresentations is emphat
ically denied by the officers of the com
pauy. Ex-Gov. Merriam, one of the
directors of the St. Paul company, said
yesterday that it was held out from the
start to all subscribers that the concern
to be established here was to be a dis
tinct company from the original plant
in New York. -
"All there is to the mortgage given by
the original company, " said Merriam,
"is that the company desired to borrow
some money, and did so by the mort
gage process. That deal has n o con
nection whatever with the company in
St. Paul. This company is separatety
incorporated, is owned by. a different
body of stockholders and operated by a
different set of officers. We are not
bound by any debts contracted by that
[Company. Our affairs are moving
along smoothly, and we. are not com
plaining." .7 7?

Vanderburgh May Succeed Canty
on the District Bench.
Speculation as to the appointment of
a successor to Judge Canty on the dis
trict bench is still rife in Minneapolis
and tho counties embraced in the dis
trict. The Democrats think they have
a right to the office, but no assurances
have been given them by Gov. Nelson
as to wham he will appoint to succeed
Judge Canty when he takes his seat on
the supreme bench Jan. 1. It is rumored
in a quarter that is almost semi-official
that Judge Vanderburgh is the coming
man. and will step down from the
supreme bench to the shoes to be
vacated by Judge Canty. It is said that
Gov. Nelson is considering the appoint
ment of Judge Vanderburgh to the
district court bench, and that his
appointment is only conditional on nis
acceptance. - __^^ .
