Test of Seeger's Burners Failed to Develop 16- Candle Power. ACME BURNERS ALL RIGHT. Committee Decides Against Purchasing or Renting the Burners. The joint council committee on gas will recommend the council to award the contract fur gasoline li<htin< in the outlying districts of the city to Robert Seeder. The committee came to this conclusion vesterd ;y afternoon, alter a session with the bidders, and after reading the report of Prof. George D. Shepherdson, who tested the burners. The action of the committee may wot bo sustained, however, particularly in the board of aldermen, where there is oppo sition to Seeder. in the committee yesterday Chairman Uobb. and Aid. Murphy voted against Seeger as the re sult of the test by Prof, Shepherdson showed that beeper's burner had a ca pacity of only 14.93 candle power, in stead of sixteen, as required by the specifications. As a matter of fact, the burner of the Acme Vapor Stove com pany was the only one of the three tested that showed a Capacity Kqual to 16 Candle Power, and that burned without giving a smoky Same, so the report of ttie professor stated. The session began with the reading of tiiis report. After stating the condi tions uuder which the test was made at the university, the report gave the fol lowing results: The Acme burner gave a clear, bright MirtU of ltJ.O'2-candle power; the Seeger burner, when tlie flame would remain still, produced a light of H.y^-candle power, but ivaen the flame was blowing, that is, not quiet and steady, its candle power was only 11.1; the tlame was smoky. The Grant bonier, submitted by Isaac A. Grant, showed a capacity of 11.02 candle power, and gave a smoky tlame. As soon as Chairman Robb had fin ished reading the report Aid. Murphy moved that the committee recommend the award ot the contract to the Acme Vapor Stove company, as being the only bidder who had complied absolutely with the specifications. Aid. Murphy said he did not think that the other bidders should be considered any fur ther. Assemblyman Van Slvke argued in favor of Seeger, whose bid on the prop osition to furnish and maintain the gas oline lights, appliances and burners, was 83 Cents Per Lamp Per Month. This would mean a saving of $7,417 a year, as compared with the bid of the Acme Vapor Stove company, which was $1,013*. Aid. Murphy maintained that the committee could not consider any bid but the Acme's. Seeeer's burner had been given a proper test, and was found not to have a capacity of sixteeu canulf power. Mr. Seeder, whose uneasiness during the criticisms of himself and 1113 patent burner was quite perceptible, tiien arose and declared that the test at the university was not made properly. Mr. Seeger knew ins burner whs equal to any in the contest, and he was willing to have another test to prove It. But the proper grade of gasoline must be used and the pressure be made normal. Actual service, though, was the best test of burners, so Mr. Seeder thought. In answer to Mr. Seeder's assertion that there was an exeeu 01 pressure used 111 the tests to the extent" of (oar incites, Mr. Heilbron, representing the Acme Vapor Stove company, said: If oil broil Talk* "The pressure didn't effect any of the burners, because it was checked by a valve. 1 am certain that Seeder's burner cannot give a 16-eandie power light, whereas, we have at a public test proven tliAt our burner has a capacity of even more than 15-candle power. Neither does our burner Kive a smoky flame as the others did. I claim, there fore, that the Acme Vapor Stove com pany is the only bidder who has com plied with all the specifications, and is consequently entitled to sole consider ation here." John H. Ives, acting as the attorney for the Acme Vapor Stove company, followed with an argument against the further consideration of Seetier's bid. Mr. Ives contended that it was not right as a mere business proposition for the city to award the contract for furnishing a 16 candle power light to a man whose burner has been proven incapable of giving more than 14.02 --cnndle power. Aid. Murphy then renewed his mo tion to recommend that the ceutract be awarded to the Acme Vapor Stove com pany but it was not seconded. Assem blyman Van Slyke thereupon moved that the committee recommend thai the contract be awarded Ui Mr. Seeper. Aid. Lindahl seconded it and it was carried by a vote of 4 to 2, Aid. Kartafc excused from voting. Aid. Murphy remarked just prior to the vote that lie did not understand how the city coulokmake Seeger furnish a lij-candle power burner. City Attor ney Chamberlain answered that the contractor must comply with the terms of the contractor if he refused the city could rescind it. The city attorney sug gested in this connection that it would be well for the city to supply itself with a testi lit; apparatus aDd to make tests on the lights at any time desired. The committee decided to recommend that the city do not purchase or rent the burners. This course will save the city nearly $3,OiX).

Ermisch and Wonigkeit Got Their Downward Start Through Truancy. WORK OF THE SCHOOL BOARD Various Measures Concern ing Teachers, Engineers and Janitors. Tho regular monthly meeting of the scliool board was held last night, all the members being present. A good deal of business of a routine character was disposed of and reports were read from the vatious committees. The commit tee on schools made the following re port, which was adopted: We recommend that the resignations of Mrs. Emma Scott, teacher of the seventh grade. Van Buren school, and Miss Constance Giltnan, of the second grade. Gorman school, be accepted. We recommend that leave of absence l»e granted to Miss Frances Keif, of the Van Buren school; Miss Emma Axtell. of the Jackson school: Miss Carrie Silli man, of Cleveland school; Miss Mary Gray, of the Deane school, and Miss Addie Gray, of the Van Buren school. Alt the above to date from Dec. 1. We recommend that the following persons be graduated frouj the teachers' training school: In tho regular course, Miss Ella Kennedy, Miss Katharine Butler, Miss Julia Ekman, Miss Anna I'eierson. In the kindergarten course, Miss Florence Kood, Miss Pearl Teeple, Miss Mary Giitinan. We recommend that Miss Minnie O'Brien be promoted from the position of fourth grade teacher in the Lincoln school to that of seventh grade in the Van Buren at salary of the third grade. We recommend the ap pointment of Miss M. G. Fanning to the fourth grade, Lincoln school, at max imum schedule salary; Miss Kath arine Butler to the second grade; Jackson school; Miss Ella Kennedy to the second grade. Gorman school; Miss Martha Schroer to the fourth grade. Van Buren school; Miss Julia Ekman to the second grade, Van Bureu school; Miss Anna Peterson to the sec ond grade, Cleveland school; Miss Kate Gaughan to the intermediate grades, Deane school; Miss Pearl Teeple to the position of assistant kindetgartner, half day, Jefferson school; Miss Flor ence Kood, half-day, assistant kinder gartner, Webster school; Miss Mary Giitinan, one-session assistant kinder gartner, Murray school. All the above to date from the beginning; of the De cember school month and to be at mini mum schedule salary, except as speci fied. We recommend that Mrs. Georgia Patterson be placed uoon tne grammar schedule to date from the Ist of September. That the min utes of the meeting of Oct. 8 be amend ed, placing Mrs. Augusta McLeod at maximum schedule salary. We recom mend that Mr. Farnsworth be allowed, without loss of pay, to leave his school on the afternoon of Friday, Dec, 14, to preside at an educational meeting; that the use of the high school hall be granted to the State Educational asso ciation for the declamatory contest on the evenings of Dec. 15 or ltiand2G; also, that the State Educational asso ciation be allowed the use of such rooms as may be needed for Its meet ings in December. We recommend that the literary societies of the Sixth ward be allowed the use of a room in the llumboldt school for one evening a mouth. The school at Haniline is in a seri ously crowded condition. The average per room is forty-seven (above the kin dergarten), and in one room there are lour classes and in another three. The lirst primary teacher has sixty-two children. It is imperative that another teacher be added at once. We reccom mend that the first floor of the old school building be rented, and that the kindergarten room be fitted with desks, at a rental not exceeding $10 a mouth. Supt. Gilbert on Truants. The superintendent of schools sub mitted the following matter for the con sideration of the board: St. Paul, in common with every city, has a certain class of children, mostly boys, known as truants, and bometimes incorrectly as iucorrigibles. They are boys who either will not stay in school or whose conduct while there is such that they cannot be retained, nor are they bad enough to be sentenced to the reform school under our laws. Their homes are, for' tne most part, unfit places for children, their parents either vicious or careless, so that the children roam the streets, asso ciate with the worst characters, until such a time as they have committed a crime and can be senteuced to a reform atory. It is from these unfortunates that the criminal class is recruited, and it is just here that our educational sys tem breaks down. The two young men recently hanged in St. Paul for murder had had just this training. On a recent morning seventeen boys were arrayed in the police court, all belonging to this class and all acquainted with Ermisch and Wonnigkeit. Ido not need to en large upon the situation. Unless this awful gap in our system is filled, the line of joung criminals will go ou un broken. Some cities, notably Boston, have made recent attempts in this direction, establishing institutions not strictly penal for the education of truants and unfortunates. What is needed here is not a school tor St.Pa ul -the day truant school is of little use— a home school for the state, since other cities have the same needs as we. This school should be on a farm remote from large cities, supplied with the means of industrial train in the best teachers and the most elevating influences. To it these children should be sent on indetermin ate sentences, not by the police court*, but by efficiently organized truancy departments in conrsectou with the school systems. Whether such a school can be es tablished or not, this truncy department should be established. The matter was recently discussed at a meeting of the school masters in Southern Minnesota, and a committee was appointed to bring it before the legislature. i * I recommend'hat a special committee of this board b'.*appointedon legislation with the aim of helping to secure legis lation which shall provide for an an nual school census, proper truancy laws and a home school for truants and in corrigibles. Respectfully submitted. fC B. Gilbert, v Suparintandent of bcluols. Recommendation Adopted* The report of the committee on schools was adopted, as was also that of the superintendent, and the secretary was instructed to communicate will: the board of education of Minneapolis with a view to having a committee tioui that body also appointed to co-operate wim the unu to be appointed by this bo* 'I. ■ ,■ • . . ■ ■!■■;, -» , The* supe nt'Midpii.'s report also shows the enrollment for the past month i to be as follows: . . „ November, November, In- ,; la.»a. i. .<; ■ ciLfMi Kuiubereurolletl..K,l2s 1b,i77 . 1-.T52 Dally attendance.. 13,^D0 16,173 l.C?i Number admitted.. 17,813 18,011 ■ 1,.0s The Committee on Puel and .I.tnl tora recommended the following appoint ments in their report: Louis Lundquist. ns four months fire man at Lincoln; Carl HaedricK. as four months ureniau at Franklin: John Gray, a-i to. months fireman at Jefferson; L.

We recommend that the salary of the janitor of tie Fisher Ames school bo 925 per month, instead of $15, as provided in theschedu!e,by reason of additional rooms having been opened in the school. All of the foregoing to serve at the pleasure of the board, to dale from Dee. 1, 1804, and to be at the schedule salary, except as specified to the contrary. We recom mend that the janitors of the Jackson and Gorman schools receive $10 per mouth in addition to their regular schedule salary by reason of the open ing of annexes to these schools, said in crease in salary to take effect . from the time said annexes are opened and to continue until they are closed. The board passed upon bills for the month as follows: Real estate and re pur accounts, $14,035,130; supply bills, $3,975.04, of which $3,008 was for fuel. A communication from the corporation attorney was read, in which he gave it as his opinion that the water rents of schools should not be paid out of the maintenance fund of the schools, but out of the general fund. The com munication was placed on tile. HOT 81'Kintiti, ARK. Texas, Mexico and California. Tbe VV abash Kailroad, In connection with the St..

FKAKK VALESH IS SKCIUINQ To Disprove Assertions of tU» Century Magazine—Conven tion Very Busy. Consideration of the reports of the national officers* occupied yesterday morning's session of the Barbers' In ternational convention. Both sessions of the day were again behind closed doors.' The report of Secretary W. E. Klapetzy favored several amendments to the constitution, especially in the financial system. He is aiso of ttia opinion that the book? should be kept by the national secretary rather than by the individual unions. The report of Treasurer Oscar B. Payne was read and accepted. President J. C. Meyers urged in his report that the delegates, during their short session, should strive to further the essential objects ot the union. These are, to secure for the individual barber fair play, shorter work days and Sunday rest; to care tor the sick and distressed, and to perform the last fit ting rites in memory of departed brothers. He asked for the abolition of certain "useless attachments and de partments," and the election of able men, "temperate in language, habits and all other things." After referring to hi 3 own four years of disinterested services in office he indicated the neces sity of selecting officers that would be, above ail, of service to the union, .hist before the noon adjournment Rev. A. N. Carson, of the Central Presbyterian church, urgently invited the members of the convention to attend the services at his church, providing they remain ia the city, next Sunday. At the opening of the afternoon ses siou Frank Valesli, of the state bureau of labor statistics, addressed the convention. He stated his desire for statistics regarding the number of apprentice barbers, tin length of their apprenticeship and tin nationality of the union's members. Mr. Yalesh is trying to disprove the as sertions of the Century Magazine that the majority of this country's labor unions are un-American, being chiefly under the control of foreigners. The statistics so far collected by Mr. Valesh would tend to combat the Century's contention, at least in this state. President Meyers then announced th« standing committees as follows: Press, Jacob Fisher, J. \V. Comstock, H. "\V. Gains, M. E. Murray, H. W. Munsry; resolutions, William Urehm, John i'ronini, A. C. Cheesman; finance. A. Lohnes, C. D. Artson, C. W. Miike:; organization. Adam Keehu, M. A. Whitaker, Oscar B. Payne. Several minor committees reported, and the judiciary committee followed with a recommendation of the im portant 4 liunsett in tlie Constitution, of which so much has been said in an ticipation. They urce, among other things, that the international president be made treneral auditor and organizer; that the ofliecs of secretary and treas* urer be combined in one, to be known as that of secretary -treasurer ; that the president and treasurer shall reside in the same city, the international head quarters. When the committee had been heard the convention proceeded fystematic ally, section by section, to revise the constitution. This naturally consumed much time, and no s«rious changes \ver« effected during the afternoon. The vital alterations above referred to wer« not reached in the discussion. At the close of the session M. E. Mur-. ray, on behalf of the St. Paul Trades and Labor assembly, extended an invi tation to the delegates to attend a trrand ball to be given in their honor by tiie assembly at Market hall this evening. The convention decided to attend ma body. CHARMING CONCERT. That Arranged by Miss Chryst lor the Barbers. Miss Louisa Hathaway Chryst. who arranged the concert at Ford's hall las* evening in honor of the barbers' inter" national convention, is fully entitled to her big bouquet. Not only was tno concert so successful that every numbei received an encore, but the playing: ol Miss Chryst herself was a delight to every one of the large audience, which included iho delegates in a body. Her execution is notable for its quiet, clear-cut effects, without striving after inaccurate brilliancy. She received, of course, an especially enthusiastic re call, and her testimonial bouquet was as large as it was beautiful. Miss Taylor, the young violinist, re ceived r\ most cordial welcome, tier pleasing characteristic is the successful manner in which, except during an oc casional rapid passage, she maintains that clear, sinciug tone, which tiie violin rarely surrenders except to the old, ex perienced artist. If personal flaitery were not wicked, we should say that— but we won't. Miss Ford's recitations were remarka bly good. She alone received a double encore. Dickens himself would bava applauded the transformation of her rich feminine voice into the resonant base of Mr. Peireotty. while the dia logue between the birds and the frogs was verltistic enough for Mr. Garland. The mellow, even sweetness «f Miss Farwell's singing is accented by the natural tremolo of her *olce. The iiitala of Buck's sonnet was. tor this reason, especially admirable. Messrs. Colvilie and Johnston per fectly sustained their well-known vocal reputation. Ball Cofltms.
