the Cuppers' Pay VIM Therefore
There are some city employes who
Aill not receive their uionthiy pay
ton ay. They ate the school teachers
and the policemen. The failure to send
in the board of education pay roll in
time is the reason why the teachers will
have to wait tor a few days, but in the
case of the policemen the cause is quite
different. Comptroller McCardy is that
cause. Thre is not enough money in
the police lund just now, and will not
be until the county treasurer has made
ins monthly settlement with the city
treasurer. The money is sure to come.
It is merely detained in the county
treasurers office to await the county au
ditor, who has some little figuring to do,
after which it will be carried down the
hall to the city treasurer's office and
counted. When this has been done,
then the comptroller will approve the
pay roll and send it to the council. As
it is, the policemen will receive but
half a month's pay for October, owinsr
to the deficiency in their fund.

Tlie matter of election expenses will

the common council. The bills have
already been referred to a special com
mittee consisting of the city comptroller
and the chairman of the committee on
claims in each body, Assemblyman

can be estimated at present, the total

On the basis of 3u cents an hour, the

receive 512.G0 each for the four regis
rationdiys. I'n-jro are 113 pre^inati

On election day there were four
judges ami tour clerks in each precinct,
or a total of (JJ4 in the city. At 30 cents
an hour, allowing that they worked
twenty-four hours, the compensation
would be $7.20 each, or a total of
8^508.90. Adding this to the §7,119 gives
?10,0-27.»0 as the total compensation of
all judges and clerks for the entire
five days. The rent of the various poll

stationery will amount to Si.DOJ more,

other $2,000. This would bring ihe total
expense up to f'20,000.
Comptroller McCardy has the bills
under consideration, and will have
something to say about Uiem when the
special committee meets this afternoon.
At the present time there is only ?8,000
of tiie election fund to meet these bills.
The sum of SftltOO was provided for in
the last tax estimate to meet the expen

The spring election cost about $18,000,

address on the question of labor and

reformers, he said that there was on«

wrongs righted, but preferred to wait
until their advent in another world; an
other class wanted to wait -until the

to the legislation enacted in Massachu

ins the right of labor to or

was good so far as it went
none of this legislation properly
covered the full rights of men who de
sire to band themselves together for
protection and education. Mr. Powers
referred to the necessity or. having im
proved laws passed governing factories
and child labor. He believed there was
a general sentiment favoring legisla
tion in favor of organized labor, and
thought the various unions should at
tend to the matter, because it was only
by being wide awake and alive to their
interests that anything could bo ac

Commissioner Powers was followed
by Mr. Bede, whom Chairman Miller
introduced as a man who valued his
friends above public office. Mr. Bede
began his remarks by a very touching
reference to the great commonality of

United States congressmen were some
thing different from the rest of hu
manity, but a residence in Washington
convinced him that they didn't know
more than he does, and he hadn't
changed his mind since. He said he
resigned his ollice because he saw the
avalanche coming, and didn't want to be
left alone in office. Maj. Baldwin didn't
want to be partial, so when he saw
Bede out of it, why, of course, he didn't
want to be elected. To illustriate the
lortitude of his friend, Maj. Baldwin,
reference was made to the fact that the
major had lived seventeen months, in
Lioby prison and tea in Duluth, so a
little thing like defeat would have no
effect on him. fle had great faith in
humanity. When he was out of a job
some years ano his wife suggested mat

to office-holding, he said the Demo

where Republicans had been nesting

conventions of the kind were he was a

was convinced that the year 1894 was
the most important in the history of
organized labor, and its events would be
educative feu an extended degree. He
said that if he was running this country
he would pass a tariff schedule placing
tlty initiative and referendum on the

ganizations upon the great progress
they had made, and had no fear ot the
ultimate solution of the labor problem.

H. P. Hall upon rising took a few
raps at his friend "Jadam." He drew
attention to the double tragedy whereby
Itadu died for Baldwin and then Bald

pressed great faith in the printers
and felt it a pleasure and honor
to be a mouse them. He was
with them at all times when they were
out for principle and r ght, but cau
tioned them against getting tangled up
in technical disputes. He deprecated
what iie termed a mutual suspicion
which existed between the employers
and eajploves. and hoped it would soon
be obliterated. He strongly urged con

that a member of either had the full
privileges of the other by virtue of his
membership In one. and a*ter the going
ot Secretary Danforth to Miuneapolia
and the coming of Secretary McGinnis
to the St. Paul club, it was found the
arrangement worked so satisfactorily
that the clubs jointly Invited a similar
arrangeineut witli the commercial clubs
of a number of other cities throughout
the country. The new idea has found
favor, and already the two clubs of the
Twiu Cities have been advised by the
clubH of Louisvillp, Indianapolis and
St. Joe that they will gladly enter iuto
reciprocal arrangements by which a
member, by virtue of belonging to one,
will be entitled to the privileges of all.
It ia expected that similar arrange
ments will be made with Helena. Ta

OUR RETAIL TRADE.
IT IS BOOItIING IN NEARLY ALL
Fresh Stocks and the Latest Not
elties— Special, Bargain and
The retail trade has made such rapid
and continuous advances in the last six
years as to completely surprise even
those who are in frequent contact with
the same, hikl almost bewilder those w ho
but seldom enter its area. It Is perhaps
worth while to look into some of the
causes of tne existence of this gratify
A few years ago nearly everybody
was speculating; a large percentage of
our business men had ijone into the real
estate business, and many merchants,
to use a popular expression, merely car
ried on their stores "as a blind" and
took but little interest in the same, geu
eraily employing hiich-salaried man
agers. It is quite apparent that the
cost of carryi lit; on business without the
watchful interest and active control ot
its real head is largely increased. Fur
thermore, rents were very high and all
The stores were old-time structures,
dark anrl clingy, sometimes several
steps above the sidewalk, and if upper
floors were, used they were reached by
stairways not always of the most invil
ioc nature. The business district was
wideiy Mattered, ami, even where it
was most compact (Third street), one
was compelled to *ro up and down the
hill, or perhaps both.
Everything was, if not In a primitive,
at least in a transitory state. The mer
chants were comparatively in the dark
as to itie permanent demands of the
markets. Many of the extremely
wealthy class purchased largely in the
East. The people of the state thought
they would be almost as well served by
their local dealers, and our outside trade
was comparatively small.
But see what changes have been
wrought in the few intervening years.
Speculation is abandoned; merchants
give their individual attention to busi
ness. There are many labor-saving de
vices, everything is systematized, and
business is now conJucted on the least
possible margins; nearly all the stores
now sell for cash, with but one price,
and goods marked in plain selling fig
ures, and all purchasers are treated
alike. Rents ate very much lower and
help less expensive. Perhaps the great
est cnauge is in the buildings them
selves — uirectly accessible Horn the
sidewalk, abundant daylight, spacious
arrangements for displaying goods,with
upper Moors, where needed, reached by
elevators. The business urea is now
more condensed and -on a level
space,and, altogether, shopping is now
more of a pleasure than a burden. Tue
market is comparatively settled, and its
demands better understood by our mer
chants. Toe* know by experience
how, when and what to buy, and the
value of what they handle. The extent
and variety of our stocks are most sun
prising, and an almost unlimited
amount of capital is invested in the
same. '1 he completion of the Soo can.il
and the Soo rail mute as well uidke it
possible to deliver goods at our door at
practically Chicago rates. No mer
chants in the country cau now buy
more cheaply than our own.
Those wiio have not shopped in our
city for some time can scarcely realize
the recent rapid decline in prices, nor
the satisfaction that is felt by having
such large and varied stocks from
which to select. One can always lind
fresh stocks and late novelties.
There are almost always special sales
and bargains, auctions and the like, so
that holiday purchasers, from present
indications, are likely to have things
pretty much their own way.

Rain for Today.
Said Observer Lyons yesterday:
"There is a storm brewing in the North
west, and it looks as though we should
have rain Thursday morning. It will
be cloudy and damp until tonight, when
it will become clearer. It will be cool
Friday and Saturday."
Which gratified me on returning home
