Franklin Should Ask to Have His
Salary Reduced.
Aid. Franklin, who has been elected
secretary of the fire board, has during
his term in the council been outspoken
regarding the necessity of economizing
in all departments of the city govern
ment. No later than a week ago the
Sixth ward alderman raised the question
as to whether the council had not the
right to reduce salaries of city officials
even when fixed by the charter, provid
ing the salary was considered too much
tor the services rendered. The salary
of the secretary of the fire board is not
.fixed by the charter, but by the
commissioners, and at present it
is "*1,500 per year. One of the
many friends of the newly elected sec
retary is authority for the statement
that Franklin will insist on the salary
being reduced to a figure which will
pay a reasonable sum for the amount of
work to be done and at the same time
relieve in a measure the overburdened,
An Ordinance Will Become a Law
Without His Signature.
Mayor Wright lias had under consid
eration for the last two days the ordi
nance passed by the council Tuesday
night fixing the licenses of foot, push
cart and vehicle peddlers at s*b>, $50 and
§100 each a year. The ordinance was
prepared and passed at the request of
the Retail- Grocers' association, and the
mayor in endeavoring to cany water on
both shoulders is in a dilemma. He does
not care to antagonize the grocers, and
at the same tune in order to prove his
alleged interest in the welfare of the
needy and poor he does not want to sign
the measure. One of the members of
the council claimed last. evening that
the mayor would allow five days to
elapse before he took any action and the
ordinance would then become a law
without his signature. The explanation
could then be made by his honor that in
the rush of business the measure es
caped his attention.

Circle number two or the guild of St.
John the Evangelist's church netted a
very acceptable sum last evening, from

enough to open her house. This branch
of the guild numbers seven members,
Miss Lucy Ames, president, and Misses
Forepaugh, Ames, Gussie and Elsie

by the vote of 40 to 14. George Thomp

I am not so silly as to suppose that I
shall have the co-operation of every
member of this club. Nor do I desire
it, for the man who cannot call forth
some opposition is a nonentity— a char
acterization which 1 have no desire to
merit at present. But I hope to have
the moral co-operation of the members,
and I think I shall have it, because
the gentlemen of the opposition have
already assured me of their hearty good
will and active iuterest. The respons
ibility is great, but with your honest
assistance I have no fear for the
success of , the club. 1-- do not
know its history— I mean its ancient
history; "1 do know it well" since
the club was resuscitated a few years
ago - by that Nestor of Northwestern
journalism. Hon. H. P. Hall. Mr. Hail
brougnt to his office of- president a life
long experience, a sound judgment and
a genial disposition. He laid the founda

deep and wide. The distinguished gen

veloping the i principle*) planted by
Mr.Hall. And now -upon me rests
the enormous responsibility '-* of
crowning the work. - When 1 look
around me and see the brilliant face's. of
the gentlemen of this club, and when I
think of the many successes which not
a few of its. members have won in the
various departments of journalism.and
other fields of literature, I have no fears

"Woman is the lesser man," said
Tennyson. If he were in the St. Paul
Press club he would see that woman is
far from being the lesser man. We have
in this club what the bright young
author of Mdlle. Paganiui calls the re
incarnated woman, but what I shall call
the evolved woman, or the highest
type of American woman, an expression
synonymous with the highest type of
woman ou earth.- There is nothing to
prevent us from achieving the fullest
measure of success on social, intellect

Agricultural College _Is Now
Largely Attended.
Superintendent of Public Instruction
Pendergast was at the opening of the
term of the agricultural school yester
day. Five years ago the school opened
with seventeen pupils. The attendance
has increased about 33 percent annually
since then, and it now has 175 pupils,
with indications that it will have 200 be
fore the close of the present term. The
pupils come almost entirely from the
farming districts. Hennepin and Kam
sey counties have less than-th*-* average.
There is a steady and increasing de
mand for the graduates for paying
places in cheese factories, creameries,
for foremen on large farms and in agri
cultural college work. They are taught
practical and theoretical agriculture,
botany,, greenhouse work, carpentry
aiidblacksmithing. The course is three
years, and they are fitted for the four
years agricultural course in the univers
ity. As the term covers only the winter
and spring months there is a possibility
tljat the remaining six months. may be
devoted to girls, as many applications
have been made for instruction for them
on agricultural lines. The equipment
for the school Includes the state experi
mental farm.
Donahower anil Hay Must Stay
Out Their Terms. 7 .'"
Marshal Jeremiah C. Donahower re
ceived word from Washington city yes
terday that he would be forwarded
money to defray the expenses of the
January term of the federal courts that
open in this city next Tuesday. Marshal
Donahower says this looks like the mat
ter of appointments to succeed him and
Mr. Hay are tied up with a contest. He
says that 87,300 will about pay the ex
penses of jurors and witnesses for the
coming term of the court, but it will
take more than that to pay all expenses.
He expects that amount will be sent
him for the purpose indicated, as he
informed the department of the amount
actually needed. His requisition for
expenses for the quarter ending Dec. 31
has not yet been honored. The expenses
for that period include over 84,200,
which is due the Minnesota state peni
tentiary for taking care of about 100
federal prisoners that are now con lined
in the Stillwater penitentiary under a
contract between the United States and
the state of Minnesota.
