the vote that lie did not understand how
the city coulokmake Seeger furnish a

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

The committee decided to recommend
that the city do not purchase or rent

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

regular course, Miss Ella Kennedy,
Miss Katharine Butler, Miss Julia
Ekman, Miss Anna I'eierson. In the
kindergarten course, Miss Florence

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

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
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
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.

tion of ten months fireman at the Madi

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

as specified to the contrary. We recom
mend that the janitors of the Jackson

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

The board passed upon bills for the

Bon Ami Club.
The result of the debate on the reso
lution that "Love is a greater incentive
to human action than ambition,"
which took place at Bon Ami hall last
evening, is not to be announced. It
might abnormally encourage the men.
The entertainment, under the auspices
of St. Joseph's Total Abstinence so
ciety, was very successful. Rev. T. J.
Gibbons' address was replete with
pithy allusions. In the debate J. C.
Nolan and T. H. Loghran were a 9 con
vincing as if they were the veritable
mouthpieces of the "laughter-loviag"
goddess, while M. J. Clark and J. J.
Regan might have been the ministers of
Charles XII. himself.
Misses Annie McQuillan, Theresa
Nolan, Gertrude and Mamie O'Brien
and Maggie Cody received unlimited
applause from the gentlemen, nor did
the ladies forget Willie McGuire. J. 11.

STREET MAIL CARS.
The New Idea to Be Tried at Cleve
Cleveland, 0., Dec. s.—Assistant
Superintendent of Railway Mail Service
Matson. of Washington, arrived here
today, and is making arrangements with
the Cleveland Electric Street Railway
company for the collection and delivery
of the mails. Letter boxes will be
placed on electric trains on the various
lines, in case the company accepts the
proposition of the government for the
service. The latter offers the street car
company the same rate as is paid to the
steam roads, winch is $62.25 for every
200 pounds per mile per annum. It is
very likely that the proposition will be
accepted and that the service will be
started very soon. If the plan works
satisfactorily special electrical postal
cars will be built and run over all the
Hues in thb city.

WORK OF THE BARBERS.
FKAKK VALESH IS SKCIUINQ
To Disprove Assertions of tU»
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
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
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
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
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
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
That Arranged by Miss Chryst lor
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

rich feminine voice into the resonant
