Mr. Gray Says Doer Are Slaugh
tered Mercilessly.
According to the views of J. F. Gray,
of Chicago, who was in the city yester
day, the came laws of this state seem to
be "more honored in the breach than
observance." Mr. Gray has been out
on a hunt in the Red Lake district. He
said that while he found duck hunting
along the Great Northern all right, he
failed to get a shot at a single deer,
owing to the great number of hunters,
who are making sad havoc amoug them.
Mr. Gray saw over a hundred saddles
of venison along the line ready to be
shipped to St. Paul.
Mr. Gray showed a startling dis
crepancy between the game laws here
and in adjacent territory. The open
season in Minnesota expires Nov. 25.
while over the line the time is extended
to February in which to dispose of
deer, he complained or the strictness
of the law that made it hazardous to
ship out of the state a few birds to
friends, while he declared commission
men were doing the same thing right
along with apparent Immunity. '
Mr. Gray said that another flagrant
violation of the law that came to his no
tice was a wholesale scooping up of fish
at Dead lake, near Fergus Falls, by

His Bid May Be Thrown Out
as Being 1 Too Low for
Good Work.
For the Contract of Lighting:
Outlying: Streets With
Assembly Concurred With the
Aldermen on the Crema
tory Matter.
Five bids for the gasoline lighting
contract for the year 1595 were opened
by the assembly last nig.iit. Robert
Seeger's was the lowest bid, but that
does not necessarily imply that he will
rceive the contract. All the bids were
referred to the joint committee on gas
from each body, which will probably
meet early next week.
The bidders are Robert Seeger, Wag
ner & Joy, Isaac A. Grant, P. D. Scan
nell and the Acme Vapor Steve com
pany, which has the present contract.
The bids are in accordance witii nine
specifications, and areas follows:
Robert Seejjer:
Eighty-three cents per lamp per
month, the contractor to furnish the
gasoline and maintain a 6ixteeu-randJe
power light, to supply the burners and
other necessary appliances, keep the
glasses clean, make all necessary re
pairs, etc.; $1.12 per lamp per month in
case the city furnishes the burners;
$1.50 in case the contractor furnishes
and sells the burners 10 the city when
ordered; B> s cent** iv case the contractor
furnishes the burners, but charges the
city for the use of them; $2.31 in case
tiie contractor furnishes 1,500 street
lamps without burners or posts at
tached; 60 cents apiece for 750 or more
lampposts; no charge for removing or
transferring lamps aud posts when or
deied; 15 cents apiece for tin street
signs, to be placed on each lamp. The
bid of the
Acme Vapor Stove Company,
which is the next lowest, is as follows,
the following figures being in the same
order: $I.ol>£, $1.01, $1.50, five cents,
§2.35. 55 cents, no chart; c, 18 cents,
14 cents for iron street signs.
Isaac Grant
bid as follows: $1.25, $1.23, $1.40, seven
cents, $2.85, 85 cents, no charge, 15
cents for iron signs, 16 cents for tiu
Wagner and Joy:
*1.18&; $1.1%'; 50 cents; 5 cents; S&50;
GO cents; no charge; 5 cents for either
tin or iron signs.
*\ D. Scaiuiell:
$1.07; $1.05; $1.35; s^' cents: $2.45; 65
cents; 35 cents; 14 cents, iron street
signs; 10 cents, tin signs.
There was some discussion prior to
the reading of Mr. Scanner's bid,caused
by the fact that Mr. Scaunell had ouiit
ted to enclose a certified check for
$2,500, as required by the advertise
ment. Mr. Scannell explained the over
sight, and guaranteed thai he would
place the check in the city clerk's hands
by 9 o'clock this morning. Lpon this
condition Assemblyman Parker moved
that the bid be received|and considered
on the same basis as the other bids.
Mr. Arosin objected, and so did Mr.
Lewis, but the corporation attorney ad
vised the assembly that it had a legal
right to accept the bid or to refuse it.
Mr. Parker's motion, accordingly, pre
vailed, and all five bids were referred
to the committee on gas from each body.
Upon examination of the bids it will
be seen that Mr. Seeger's bid under the
first specification is 18>i cents per lamp
lower than that of the Acme Vapor
Stove company. This is the significant
and most important specification, as it
provides for tne furnishing of all the
gasoline lights and burners and sus
taining the lights throughout the year.
Mr. Heilbron, of the Acme Vapor Stove
company, says that Seeger is
Welcome to the < untraet
if he can perform it. It is also notice
able that, in case the city furnishes tlie
burners, Seeger wants $1.12 per lamp
per month. This is explained by the
fact that Seeger has burners of his own
to sell the city.
All the bidders agree to exhibit to the
council samples of their burners and the
ight they will furnish.
The only other matter of importance
to come before the assembly was the
resolution from the board of aldermen
instructing the city clerk to advertise
for bids for the collecting and hauliug
and disposition of garbage by means of
two crematories, one to be located on
the West side and the other near the
pest house. The resolution was adopted
by a vote of 4 to 3. Assemblyman
Johnson, the father of the scheme,
was absent on account of illness.
Assemblymen Reardou, Van Slyke and
Lewis voted agaiust it, and Assembly
men Arosin, Kobb, Strouse and Parker
voted for it. Mr. Reardon, in explain
ing his vote, said that b« was satisfied
the assembly would finally vote against
any crematory scheme.
Prendergast t'oitArmod.
The mayor's appointment of J. C.
Prendergast as a meuib.tr of the board
of fire commissioners was continued.
The contract for constructing a sewer
on Twelfth street, between Robert and
Jackson streets, was awarded to Gus
Johnson in accordance with the recom
mendation of the board of public works.
Johnson's bid was £-574.
The claim of Jailer Mat Bantz of
846.34, expended by him iv fiuuishJiiK
meals for prisoners at the central sta:
tion, was referred to Chief Clark to be
A bill of 1423.30, caused by the hiring

the assembly voted upon the '
31u tion of mr.. Parker

.specified time of forty days front the

After the assembly adjourned As
semblymen Parker, Lewis, Arosiu and
Keardon got their heads together and
agreed to make a trip to De.s Moines
and St. Louis for tiie purpose of in
specting the crematories in operation in
those cities. They will leave St. Paul
a week from tomorrow evening. A
delegation of the assembly consisting
of the four above named and outer*
then called on Assemblyman Johnson,
who lay ill at the Clarendon hotel, and
informed him that his garbage bill had
passed. Mr. Jonnson was so delighted
that it required some effort to restrain
him from jumping out of bed.
li.vii) OVKIt
Matter of Itequiring Grocers to
Pay a Meat License.
The assembly committee on license
considered yesterday the resolution of
Aid. Ehimanntraut requiring all gro
cers selling fresh meats or dressed
poultry to pay a license to the city the
same as the butchers do. Represent
atives of the butchers who were pres
ent insisted tliat the resolution should
be recommended to pass, as it was only
just to them. Assemblyman Keardoiv
was opposed to v, aud for that matter
he said he did not believe iv licenses
anyway. The butchers pointed out the
tact that unless there was a license it
was useless to appoint an inspector to
examine the quality of the goods sold.
The committee lacked familiarity with
the subject, and on motion of Mr. Aro
sin it was laid over. The matter of
licensing bill posters and requiring a
$.>.OOO bond for erecting bill boards was
passed upon by the assembly iv the
evening, as related in the account of the
meeting in this issue.
But Declines to Implicate Any
One Person— His Hearing
The examination of Jacob Kamp, ar
rested Wednesday for robbing the
mails, was yesterday continued by
United States Commissioner Tighe until
2 o'clock this afternoon. Ramp's bail
was fixed at $2,000. Late last night his
bondsmen had not been secured. It is
expected that ha will waive examina
tion. A $10 gold piece was the
first money that Kamp appropri
ated. In 1887 it fell ' from
a letter m the mail car, of which he was
messenger, betweeu Wiooaa and this
city. He picked it up. It was a bright,
heavy gold pieoe. Young Kamp was
tempted. He placed it in his pocket.
Thus began seven years of crime. A
number of inspectors have been disap
pointed before luspector Gould suc
ceeded; even then Kainp's recklessness
in passing a small check gave the first
clue to his guilt. The circumstances
were related yesterday.
All the advantage that conies from
able counsel will accrue to Kamp, tor
he has retained John H. Ives.
It was rumored yesterday that Kamp
could shed light on similar practices by
his fellow employes. Seen last night
at the county jail, Kamp appeared
cheerful, and anxious to set himself
right before his old comrades.
"There is a report that others over at
the postottice have been engaged in
these operations?" . :
"1 never accused anybody."
"Why, they say you yourself told of
others.having done as much as you
"No; that isu't so. I never said any
such thiuit. I'm not going to try to get
myself out of this scrape by accusing
my old friend? that used to 'work with
"Do you mean that you have no
knowledge that any one else over there
has been doing what they shouldn't?"
••Well, what 1 tell you is that 1 never
accused anybody, and I don't know
that any person iv the office is guilty.
That's right."
"Now, then, how is it? You have
never accused anybody, and you have
no knowledge that any particular per
son is guilty. But do y«-u mean that
you have no reason to thine that any
body at all, except yourself, is engaged
iv similar transactions?"
. •Oh. no. Things have been going
wrong over there that I have nothing
io do with, and 1 can't say who is re
sponsible. Mind you, 1 don't accuse
anybody, and 1 don't know abo.it any
special man. Just set me right on
. that.' . ,
The detailed account of Kamp's oper
ations that appeared in yesterday's
Globe was, of course, correct. After
reading .the article carefully, Kamp
sliaid : "I don't see anything to change.
Yes, let it go at that. Well, 1 expect to
be out again tomorrow all right. Good

500,000 Horse Power Is to
Be Developed From the
St. Louis River
Thinks They Can Furnish the
Twin Cities Power at
$16 a Horse.
To Interest the St. Paul Com
mercial Club in the
An unofficial meeting of the members
and directors of the Commercial club
was held at the ciub yesterday at 1 p.
m. The object of the gathering was to
listen to Air. (iridley's explanation ot
wiiat the Altamonte Water company,
of Duluth, proposes to do. Briefly, this
is a plan to erect a dam across the St.
Louis river, about fourteen miles wes»t
of Duluth. And from this the water is
to be carried by a canal to the top of the
hill back of the city. From that point
it will be piped down into the city with
a fall of over 600 feet. This will fur
nish primarily about 500,000 horse
power.which will be utilized for making
"I predict." said Mr. Gridtey to a
Globe representative, "that this power
will be transmitted to the Twiu Cities.
This will make a price of $15 to $16 per
single horse power per annum. I cal
culate that the power in both cities is
not costing at present less than $00 per
horse power per year. Wires are now
stringing from Niagara Falls to Albany.
This distance is 280 miles. The dis
tance between Duluth and the Twin
Cities is 160 miles.
"The Altamonte company went to the
war department a little over a year ago.
and, after four months' work,succeeded
in getting the department to take juris
diction of the St. Louis and Cloquet
rivers as
Navigable Rivera,
under an act of congress, as thoy had a
right to do. The secretary of war tirst
called on Maj. Sears at Duluth lor an
exact report as to these streams. On
receiving that report he laid it, together
with the right of the war department to
act, before the attorney general of the
United Stales lor his decision. H«
rendered a written opinion stating that
these were navigable streams within the
meaning of the act, aud that it was the
duty of the war department to take
jurisdiction of them. They did so, and
granted, the Altamonte Water company
the right to construct three dams, two
on the St. Louis and one on the Cioquet
rivers. The grant requires that at all
times double the minimum How
shall be allowed to pass by
the lower dam. This is to keep a
steady flow of wator through the river
into the upper end of the harbor atFond
Cv Lac, through to the lake, instead of
the spasmodic flow incident to fivshets
or heavy storms. After this grant was
made and the facts came out, the Min
nesota Canal company and other kick
ers went before the war department
and succeeded in getting a rehearing on
the ground that the other fellows were
in the wrong. Tliis was granted. As
a result the secretary of war again re
ferred the matter to the attorney gen
Who Gave tlie Rehearing,
and granted counsel full opportunity to
argue the question. The attorney gen
eral reaffirmed his former opinion, as
did also the secretary ot war. He de
cided another point—that this grant of
the war department was of sucl? a
nature that it could not be revoKed un
less the Altamonte company were guilty
of laches. 1 have seen all the corre
spondence in the matter, and have
copies of a portion of it.
"The plan for carrying out this proj
ect is generally indorsed in Duluth,
though, of course, there is some opposi
tion by rival companies that are seek
ing to develop water power. 1 have
not requested any formal action by the
commercial bodies of St. I'aul or Min
neapolis, though 1 believe they view the
plan with favor. We desire to get a bill
through congress in December, if pos
sible, authorizing the price to be paid
for a certain portion of the Fond dv Lac
reservation—about 300 acres—that will
be flooded. Congressmen-elect Towne
and Baldwin favor the plan. Congress
man Kiefer has not yet committed him
There were quite a number of direc
tors and members present yesterday.
There is a likelihood that the St. Paul
body will, either at a special or its next
regular meeting, take some formal ac
tion regarding the matter.
Winning Cake Walkers Heroes
of the Occasion.

at Cunningham's Monday night oc
curred last evening. \ It was preceded

fairly won by Miss Anna liohauson and
Mr. Johnson. The important ceremony
was began by. an. impromptu address.;

admonished of the great reputation
attained by the lucky couple as cake
walkers. They wwe told that the pair
had appeared by special request before
all the crowned heads of Europe, and
had walked successfully through a bril
liant season at Niblo's sard? 113, Xew
York. Humorous; reference, was made
also to Mr. Fisher and Miss Wilson, who
came in second in the race. - . ,<

and Col. Hotfoot appeared, on tin.-scene

Dr. Rice lectured yesterday afternoon
at High School hall to the teachers of
the public schools, his subject being
"How to Acquire Skill in Teaching."
The well-known educator spoke in an
interesting way.of the necessary quali
fications of a good teacher, aud how
skill in the work might be acquired.
He said:
"There is an old proverb that says
that teachers are born, not made. The
art of teaching is acquired only by
means of practice, and the faculties aie
only developed by training, which is the
essential element in the production of a
.good teacher. The first aim in.giving
instruction is too often to mak<i it inter
esting above everything else. Now the
school is a place of instruction, not of
entertainment, The ideal mode of giv
ing instruction makes it interesting.and
while an instructive lesson is always
good, an interesting one is better. Eveiy
form of art has a mechanical as well as
a|jpiritual side, and teachiug is like
everything else.
"Teachers may be divided into four
classes. The work of the first class
may be compared to the work of the
organ grinder, while to the second class
belong those teachers whose work is
interesting, but not instructive. To the
thin] class belong the teachers whose
work, whiie thorough and instructive, is
not interesting, while in the fourth
group may be placed the teachers who,
while giving the very best of iustruc
liou. understand the method of clothing
hard, dry facts so as to make them
more attractive. These are the Rubin
stuiUs and Paderewskis of the profes
"Again, tiie study of the recitation is
an ail-important matter. A knowledge
of pedagogical techique is the first
thing necessary in acquiring the art <-f
machine— the capacity to conduct a
recitation and to develop it point by
point, and finally to clinch the wuoW
matter in the mind of the pupil. A
teacher must prepare her lesson n» two
ways. First, she must arrange ijtt her
mind, or, better, in writing, the points
to be presented, and then she must
uialce an analysis of the lessou. Art^sd
in this way, she must then develop the
