Assembly Unanimously De
cides to Cart Garbage Out
of the City.
City Attorney Says They
Draw No Pay Until After
Matter of Cement Sidewalks
Is Indefinitely Post
The assembly consumed a full hour
last evening Hiking about garbage
crematories, twenty minutis discussing
the right of the policemen whose ap
pointments wore recently confirmed to
receive pay from the time of their ap
pointment, and another forty minutes
In disposing of routine business. The
result of all this is that the city of St.
Paul will have no garbage crematory
for a year to come at least, and tile pay
roll of the six policemen confirmed at
the last meeting of the assembly was
referred back to the committee on ways
and means.
In killing tho earbage crematory
scheme the assembly baa put an end to
discussions which wore becoming ex
ceedingly monotonous. The resolution
instructing the city clerk to advertise
for bids for a crematory In accordance
with certain specifications was lust by a
vote of 4 too. Messrs.Arosin and Parker
wsre excused from voting. Messrs.
Johnson, Uobh and Strouse voted "'aye"
and Messrs. Reardou, Lewis, Van Slyke
and President Copeland voted against
advertising for a crematory. Mr. John
son then moved that the city clerk be
instructed to advertise for bids for the
collection and disposal of garbage under
the present system—that i.s by removing
it at least ten miles into clie country.
The motion was unanimously carried.
Prior to the roll call on the crematory
quastion there was much talk. As it
was proposed to locate the crematory on
the West side levee, Mr. Lewis created
Considerable Amusement
by remarking in ■ facetious tone:
•• The West side seems to be greatly
favored in the matter of the location of
plants, but, for one, I am willing to
give the East side the beneiit of a plant
of this kind. 1 would surest that it be
located in the Seventh ward. That is
on aijcti around, which is more suitable
for institutions of this nature."
Peace and quietness prevailed In the
assembly chamber, until the report of
the committee on ways and means
relating to the special pay roll of the
six policemen was submitted. It
amounted in all to the sum of $2,134.44,
and provided for the payment of the
men for the months of June, July, Aug
ust and September, during which period
they have been in actual service.
The ways and means committee con
sists of Messrs. Lewis, Arosln and
Parker. Chairmau Lewis and Mr.
Arosin signed a majority report recom-
Btendinz that the resolution providing
for the passage of tlie pay roll should
not pass. Mr. Parker mada a verbal
Minority report in favor of passing it.
Mr. Lewis contended that the men dis
charged by Mayor Smith were actually
on the police force until the council con
curred in their removal, and that the
nu>n appointed to fill their places were
not Ideally entitled to pay until the as
sembly confirmed their appointment.
Mr. Lewis, it should be said, did not
insist upo'i this point of law further
than to ask that the matter be deferred
until competent legal advice be ob
Mr. Parker presented an able argu
ment iv support of passing the resolu
"The Assembly lias Concurred
In the mayor's action," said Mr. Parker,
"under the dates of his removals and
appointments of the men. Merely be
cause this assembly has delayed the
matter for three or four months 13 no
reason why these men appointed by the
mayor should not receive pay for all
the time they have served. It dees not,
in my opinion, relieve the city from its
responsibility to pay them."
Mr. Johnson vigorously disputed Mr.
Parker's assertion that the assembly
had delayed or dallied with the matter
lor three or four months. He declared
that the communication from the mayor
containing the removals and appoint
ments did not come before the assembly
in proper form until Oct. 8.
The city attorney here gave his opin
ion as to the liability of the city to pay
the men. Mr. Chamberlain said he
considered Mr. Parker's reasoning
sound and able, but unfortunately the
supreme court had decided that the
mayor's discharge of a policeman was
not effectual until the council had con
curred in It. By analogy, the city
attorney argued that the appointments
to the force would not go into effect
until the assembly confirmed them,
though the supreme court had not ren
dered an opinion as to appointments.
Mr. Chamberlain therefore questioned
the legal right of these appointees to
enforce payment for the time prior to
their confirmation, though the council
was under a moral obligation to pay
Mr. Parker then moved to refer the
pay roll hack to the committee on ways
and means, as he did not want to act
histily, and perhaps be the means of
throwing a double liability on the city.
The pay roll was accordingly referred

Law Will Not Permit Diversion of
the Park Fund.
The assembly committee on ways ana
deans spent nearly'an hour yesterday
afternoon discussing the resolution
which provides for reimbursing the
park fund In the tax budget for IS'JS for
such moneys as it may expend to give
work to the unemployed, not to exceed
the sum of $20,0'J0. The city comp
troller and pity attorney were present,
as was also Mr. Hall, ot the citizens' re
lint committee. After much debate and
explanation it was lina lly demon
strated that the contemplated action
would be illegal, inasmuch as it would
be to increase the park appropriation by
$20,000 in cast) such sum was ex
pended, or by such amount as
might be used. The comptroller
also said that the courts had decided
that any funds in the hands of a city
department could be expended as the
head of the department saw lie. Asked
by Assemblyman Parker if the 130,(130
approbated to the park board at the be
ginning of this year was legally appro
priated, Mr. McCardy said he thought
"That's a good joke on you," replied
Mr. Parker. "How did you happen to
make that mistake?"
"I didn't know any better then," an
swered Mr. McCardy, with a subdued
Out of the 150.000 so aporopriated,
$32,000 has been realized and credited to
the park board. How much of this
amount has been expended, me comp
troller declined to state. Upon his ad
vice tlit? whole matter was laid over
until Monday at 4 p. m., when the comp
troller will submit some figures and
some opinions.
The committee also laid over two bill 3

Is tho Half-Hour Service Reason-
The assembly committee on streets I
met yesterday afternoon and listened j
to the protests oi three or four patrons
of the Como avenue street cars acamst I
the present service on that line. As it
is, the cars run only once every half
hour, ami from 9:90 p. m. until mid
night they run but once an hour. For
merly the cars ran on twenty minutes
headway. Mr. Munn, in behalf of the
street railway company, said to the
committee that there was not enough
patronage on the Como line to warrant
the running of any moro cars, and that,
for that matter, the company had never I
wanted to build the line. Mr. Munn
suggested that the committee lay the
matter over, and allow Supt. Smith to
submit figures showing the comparative ;
amount of business done by the line |
under the twenty-minute and the half- |
h >ur systems.
Chairman Johnson remarked that the
question was not whether a line was
operated at a profit or not, but whether
the street railway company was giving
a reasonable service on the" line in ques
tion. Messrs. Kobb, Lewis and Strouso
coincided with Mr. Johnson. It was
finally decided, however, uot to recom
mend to the assembly the resolutions |
requiring a twenty-minute service, but |
that a member of the committee and
some of the protesting citizens should
call upon Supt. Smith at 5:30 p. in.,
with a view of reachiue an amicable
adjustment, the result of the interview
to be reported at the regular meeting
last night.
To Pave With Asphalt Between
His Kails on Seventh Street.
The street railway company hied with
the board of public works, yesterday, its
written agreement regarding the paving
of Seventh street between the rails and
tracks. This agreement was in accord
ance with the verbal understanding
reached Wednesday. But a formal agree
ment with the company has not been
reached yet, because the street car com
pany and Hennessey & Cox have not
come to an understanding
the strengthening of the conduits. It
is understood that this matter will be
settled as soon as the estimates for the
work are completed. In the meantime
the board of public works does not deem
it advisable to ratify the agreement sub
milted tfy the company until the con
tractors and the company have come to
a conclusion.
When it was announced a short time
ago that F. Hopkiuson Smith would de
liver a series of lectures on art subjects
during the month of November, it was
expected by the School of Fine Arts
that there would be a hearty response
in the way of popular interest, but the
most sanguine promoter of the under-'
taKint: did not look for the spontaneous
enthusiasm which has developed. It
was known that Mr. Smith's readings
last winter were well received, and that
the genial author of "Col. Carter" had
showed himself a man of rare ability
and much personal magnetism, but it
was not realized that the impression
had been retained so clearly in the pub
lic mind that the casual announcement
of his return on an entirely different
mission would bring out so many ex
pressions of pleasure. It now seems
that his talks on art will be even more
popular than his reading, and, la fact, it
is as an artist thatMr.Suiith first made a
reputation outside of his profession of
engineering, which is now considerably
in the background as tar as the public
is concerned. Mr. Smith has a keen
perception of puulic taste, and in his
lectures he gives the people what they
want to know about art; not generali
ties or technicalities, but the real art
ideas iv every-day language. This is
the secret of his success in art talking.
For illustration of his lectures, Mr.
Smith has an abundant fund of infor
mation and anecdote gleaned from all
parts of the world, and from personal
acquaintance with numerous artists of
wide fame. He has always taken much
interest In black and white work, aud for
this reasou, if for no other, has become
familiar with all the Illustrators of
prominence in the country. This per
sonal knowledge makes his lecture on
"American Illustrative Art" peculiarly
interesting. There is a personal flavor
in it that it could receive in no other
way. Mr. Smith keeps his fingers as
busy as his tongue while on the stage.
lirseveral of his lectures he uses a
blackboard liberally, sketching rapidly
in illustration of his points. This is
one of the best features of his lectures.
The St. Paul lectures are to be deliv
ered in Ford Music hall, and will come
on Nov. 15, 16. 1?, 20, 22 and 24. They
are under the auspices of the School of
Fine Art?, but it should be remembered
that the lectures are not only for those
especially interested in art matters, but
that they are the kind that appeal to the
public at large.

F. H. Newell, of the United States
geological survey at Washington, in
charge of the measurements of rivers,
or the hydrographic branch of the sur
vey, called upon President Footner, of
the Commercial club, yesterday, in re
gard to the continuation of the work of
the United States in this line. Mr.
Newell state? that the government sur
vey of the vicinity of St. Paul and
Minneapolis is in an advanced state of
progress. The entire country is mi
nutely examined and outlined in its
topography by the field parties. Mr.
Newell exDressed deep interest in the
movement now inaugurated by the
St. Paul and Minneapolis Commercial
clubs for the construction of an irriga
tion canal, leading from the Mississippi
river at or near Little Falls to some point
in the vicinity of the State School of Ag
riculture between the Twin Cities. His
extensive travel and thorough familiarity
with irrigation throughout the arid and
semi-arid parts of the United States qual
ify him to speak with authority upon the
desirability of extending the benefits of
irrigation in this state, and particularly
to the section named. When asked if
the project were feasible, Mr. Newell
said: "That deoends entirely upon the
topography, whether a part of the waters
of the Mississippi river can be diverted
over the great plain on the eastern side
of the river, reaching from St. Paul to
Little Falls."
This can be determined by extending
United States typographic sheets over
the section intended to be covered by
the proposed irrigation canal.
Mr. IN c well further says: "If you
can irrigate the tract of land contem
plated, it will mean a dense settlement
of farmers on small tracts of land, which
will, in the course of a few years, in
crease the value to $100 per acre, Bnd,
like the irrigated parts of California,
will mean that Anoka, Elk River, Big
Lake aud other towns along the line of
the canal will rapidly run up to from
2,000 to 8,000 populatioo, while the ben
efits to the Twin Cities will be corre
spondingly great. The prosperity which
will be created by the canal will cause
a vastly increased demand for lumber
and all building materials."
Mr. Newell was asked: "Will not
the diversion into the caual of a part of
the waters of the Mississippi river in
jure it for navigation aud log-driving
"Not appreciably," he replied. "The
uniform experience out West is that a
large portion of the water so diverted
is returned to the original stream by
seepage; but even if this were not true,
the amount of water taken for irrigation
from a stream of the size of the Missis
sippi would be inconsequential. For
instance, last year the measurements
made by the United btatea engineering
corps showed that an average of 10,000
cubic feet of water per second flowed by
the Twin Cities during the irrigating
season; whereas, a canal of the kind
mentioned would carry at the outset
but 100 rubic feet per second, which
certainly could not affect the water sup
ply of the main stream to any noticeable
or injurious extent."

mercial club to the state school of agri-

A good sized audience- greeted Schar
weuka iv his appearance at the first
artists' concert given by the Schubert
club last night at Ford's hall. The con
cert, so far as the instrumental per
formers were concerned, was a success.
Scharwenka's playing was a treat, and
was received with tha heartiest expres
sion of appreciation. His touch is
dainty and elegant yet full of strength
and brilliancy. The two numbers first
on his programme were: (a) "Nacht
stueck" (Schumann) and (b) "Ronds a
l'Hongroise" (Schubert), both composi
tions having been rearranged by him.
Their rendering showed his artistic
conception of the splendid composi
tions and was indeed a treat in every
respect, and won a most enthusiastic
recall for the brilliant pianist. His
most brilliant performance was the
rendering of the "Tell Overture,"
Kossini Liszt. It was a superb effort,
most perfectly finished performance.
The artistic shading and coloring given
to every variation of the beautiful
theme of this creation were exquisite.
In response to the storm of applause
that greeted the ending of this solo the
artist gave a delightful performance of
his own celebrated **f*oUsb Dance."
In his hands this difficult composition,
so catchy and yet so classic, ever the
despair of the aspiring young pianist,
seemed but a simple exercise. His
"Imuiomtu and Minuet," closing his
solo work, were the equal of anything
of the evening, and his hearers went
away with the satisfaction of h aviug
heard a most pleasing artist.
The piano playing of Mr. Petzet was
artistic, and as a matter of course would
have won him great applause but for
the comparison which the audience in
voluntarily made when Scharwenka
appeared. The violin solo of Mr.
Schmitz was a treat, and was thorough
ly enjoyed.

The annual harvest home festival
service was held at Christ church last
evening and was largely attended. Dr.
Drey gave a short address suitable to
the occasion, and the music was fur

Foote at the organ. The anthems pre
pared especially for the service were
tlie Mlagnificat and Nunc Dimittis,
Cruicksbank; "Oh Lord How Mani

Me My People." by Sullivan. The pro
cessional hymn was "Come Ye Thank

"On Our Way Rejoicing." The service
was a most enjoyable one throughout.

It is so much superior to any other of the kind in either city
that we should be pleased to have you visit it; walk through the
aisles and inspect the stock. Our assortment of ART GOODS, suit
able for CHRISTMAS, WEDDING and BIRTHDAY GIFTS, is frequently
estimated as being twenty times larger than the best competing
display in the Twin Cities.
We will offer inducements that we hope will be strong enough to
induce thousands to visit it. We will have
Each crowded with articles of CUT GLASS, ART CHINA BRIC-A
O'CLOCK TEAS, FANCY BASKETS, Etc. Every piece will be such as
a prudent housekeeper would be likely to buy. None of them would
appear out of place in the finest hovsehold, and it is into just such
homes the great bulk of them are certain to go. Every article on
these tables will be enough cheaper than even our ordinary price
to pay you for coming many miles to get them.
Table No. 1, choice for $ f.29
Table No. 2, choice for 2.29
Table No. 3, choice for 3.29
This sale will be continued on Saturday also. Of course, there
will be quite a choice in these pieces, and, although the assortment
is very large, and will, as much as possible, be renewed, it will
readily be understood that those who come earliest will have the
greatest variety to select from.
We will sell our BLANKETS and QUILTS at prices so much under ordinary
value that we anticipate a rapid reduction of the stock. We handle almost ex
clusively the Blankets made by the North Star Woolen Company, which are so
well known in this section that those who take the trouble to examine will
readily understand the exceptional character of the values we offer. The fol
lowing quotations will give some idea of the changes in price which run through
the entire stock:
10-4 Gray Blankets, worth $4, for $2.98
70-4 Gray Blankets, worth $5, for 3.78
7 1-4 Gray Blankets, worth $6, for 4-. (8
70-4 Gray Blankets, worth $6.25, for 4.4-8

A few high-class Blankets, slightly soiled from window display, at about
one-half actual value.
X_iHTE!N*S— Better Bargains than ever. The splendid values we
are constantly selling in this department are drawing the attention of thou
sands whom we have not hitherto counted among our patrons. These values
are good enough for any constituency. There are none better, few as good else
where in America. Does this seem lofty language? The goods will sustain it.
We are well acquainted with the values offered in the East, and only on very
extraordinary occasions are they equal to these.
We will place on our counters today 150 dozen 28-inch Unbleached Napkins
that very few retailers would think of marking less than $1.75. You can buy
them here for $|.25 a dozen.
100 pairs Linen Pillow Cases, size 22 lix 36 inches, the regular price of
which has been $1.35, will go today for $|.00 a Par
We have just secured a large lot of handsome Stamped Linens at prices so
low that our buyer regarded them as what modern retailers familiarly call "a
snap." We will sell them at prices that will probably crowd the aisle with
12x12-inch Doyleysat 15 Cents Each
18x18-inch Center Pieces at 4.5 Cents Each
20x20-inch Center Pieces at 60 Cents Each
30xS0-inch Tea Cloths at 75 Cents Each
36x36-inch Tea Cloths at $1.25 Each
45x45-inch Tea Cloths at $1.40 Each
The patterns are extremely handsome. We have never shewn prettier.
The changeable weather may remind you of the necessity of good, warm
Underwear in this climate.
OUR UNDERWEAR FOR MEN is selected with a thorough knowledge of the
best kinds, and to attract as many men here as possible we will offer it at the
lowest prices ever named for such qualities.
Natural Gray Underwear, three-quarters wool, fine, soft garments: the
usual price is $1.00. Our Price is 62 1 -' Cants.
CAMEL'S HAIR UNDERWEAR, soft, non-shrinking and fine finish. The usual
price is $1.50. Our Price is 89 Cents.
WOOL FLEECE KNIT, very warm and non-shrinking. The usual price is
$1.50. Our Price is 89 Cents.
Natural Ail-Wool Underwear, noted for its warmth, washing and wearing
qualities. The usual price is $2. Our Price is $|.29,
Natural Wool, ribbed, very fine and handsomely finished. The usual price

Australian Wool and Camel's Hair, full regular, and, all things considered,
probably the best Underwear made. It is certainly of exceptional merit.
Usual price $2.75. Our Price is $2.
