A GENERAL CHARIER. That Is What the Chamber of Commerce Wants Passed. DUAL COUNCIL FAVORED. Resolutions Urging; That the Matter Be Passed by This Session. EXPRESSION ON CURRENCY. Resolutions Favoring* the Creation of a Currency Commission. But little business was completed at yesterday ntoriiinc'i session of the chamber ©f commerce, although several important resolutions were deferred for future action. The committee on banks and banking deprecates Immediate reform of our currency question. The following reso lution reported by the committee was made a special order tor next Monday: Whereas, ere is a great need of a careful revision of our laws affecting currency and banking, but that such revision, it now attempted by congress, is likely to retard business by inducing a period of uncertainty while the mat ter is under discussion, and that the lime is too short for the tar-reaching results of any contemplated act to be duly weighed auil passed upon. Resolved, 'lhat we favor the creation of a currency commission, composed of the ablest political economists,'practi cal bankers and business men, selected tn in the whole of the country, without political bias, who shall have referred to them the entire question or the past history of our coinage, currency and banking, the present condition thereof, ami that they shall be required to pre sent to the president, with n one year, a report embodying their findings, and suggest a bill covering the changes recommended by them in our system. Mr. Smalley's resolution of Dec. 3, re garding legislation for the benefit of the city that is required of the coining legis lature, had been made a special order for yesterday; but its consideration was again deferred for two weeks. (Sen. Sanborn then sDeeilied a part of the needed legislation by t lie introduc tion of these resolutions: I'or a General < h;irier. Resolved, by the chamber of commerce ot St. Paul; That the senators and mem bers from Ramsey county, in the legis lature of lv.i.vt',. be and hereby are re quested and instructed to u*e all honor able means to pass a proper general law for the government of the cities of the state, containing among others a pro vision that in all cities where the popu lation exceeds 20,000 the legislative power granted by the act shall be exer cised by a council composed of two bodies, viz.: a board of aldermen and a cwnii>o!i council, with such restric tions as to the exercise of their powers as shall secure the greatest amount of deliberation, fairness and public knowl edge upon all matters receiving its ac tion. Resolved. Second— That if the mem hers and senators aforesaid; are unable to secure the passage of a general law containing the above provisions, that they be requested ana instructed to support a general law containing in their judgment the largest number of Bound and beneficial provisions that can be passed*accompanied by a proviso that such law sliall not be applicable to any city until the electors thereof, at a general election^ have adopted the same in preference to their existing charter, and tile notice of such adoption with the secretary of suite in the manner pro vided in said law. Resolved; Third— In the opinion of the chamber of commerce, it Is inex pedient and unwise, ami peiilous to the b£t interests of this city, to refer the matter of preparing such" general law to a commission to be provided for by the legislature to report to a future ses sion of the legislature, which, in the or dinary course, will be composed largely of different members from those who pa«s the law providing for such a com mission, and that the legislature should act unhesitatingly and vigorously upon all questions involved in a general law for the government of cities. Some debate followed, and the resolu tions were referred to the committee on legislation. On motion of Gen. Sauborn the presi dent appointed two-additional members upon the above coininiu.ee, choosing Mr Alerwin and the general himself. Notice was Riven by Mr. .Stevens that the committee on municipal legislation of the Ramsey county delegation had invited the directors to be present at a meeting of th« committee to be held in the chamber Thursday, Dec2o,at 4 p.m. Messrs. Williams. Dean, Stevens and hanborn were appointed a committee to prepare resolutions of respect to the memory of Justice Gilfillau.

COURT HOUSE MJX WIRED. Must Be AVired for Tutting in Gas Light Works. The joint c,ourt boose and city ball committee held a special meeting yes terday afternoon to consider a commu nication from the St. Paul Gas Light company relative to carrying out the contract for beating and lighting the public building. The communication called attention to the fact that the contract provided for the wiring of the buildiug by the committee so that con nection may be made at a central switch board for lighting the building. It was asserted that some of the wires are grounded, arid that there are no wires in the library. Mayor Smith stated that his understanding is that the building was completely wired for electric lights. After some discussion the matter was referred to the committee on grounds and buildings to see if wires had been cut oil by repairs made to the building, and* given power to net in case it is deemed necessary to make connection of all wlrag at a central switchboard and do what is necessary to carry out the contract on the part of the joint com mittee.

TWO QUEER EPISTLES. MAYOR SMITH RECEIVES THEN, AINU HEPLIi:S. Man Wants to Be Appointed a Copper—<«irl \\ rites to Find Her Brother. Mayors pet all sorts of letters from all sorts of people.

Smith— Dear Sir: This letter will tell you where I am. if you wish to recognize mo and put me on the police force any lime this winter. I have some parents down here, and 1 am staying with them for a while. I think 1 am worth a position the force if you please put me on. If you don't, I am ever so much obliged to you just the same. Yours respectfully, Jons Doe. P. S.—Please excuse my poor writing In answer to this the mayor informed the applicant that there was no vacancy on the force, and that the, number of applicants far exceeded the number of appointments. The next letter the mayor received was (run a young girl who signed her self, "L icie Mctiuire." Miss BleGuire informs the mayor that her brother Tom, who is now twenty-six years old, ran awajr from home when but a youth of eighteen, and has not been heard from since, thinks he settled in fc»t. Paul, and wants to know whether his Darnels in the St. Paul directory. In the usual postscript MissMeGuiresays: "If you will answer this letter you will have the life-long gratitude and thanks of a "Voino (Jiki.." Tiie mayor wrote in reply that only two Thomas McGuires eoulrt be found in the directory; one Thomas P. Mc (iuire. collar maker, Btf'.» Euclid avenue. and the other Thomas I.

The ! ; /\. GREEN Tag placed on each Suit in the! present sale is to designate it from the balance of the stock. Every Suit we offer in this sale is up to the output of the leading tailoring houses of the country in style, fit and finish. Wear one of them into the best tailoring house in St. Paul and no one there will be able to tell that it is not the production of some high-price custom tailor. Each Suit marked with a Green • .•• TAG carries with it the same guarantee that goes with the highest price Suit in the house. Every Green Tag Sale we make is made on this basis: If not found up to the high standard we advertise, the purchase can be re turned and money will be refunded. Every SUIT in the entire purchase of $25,000 is easily worth double the price marked on it. We bought $50,000 worth of clothing for $25,000, and can afford to sell suits at a price that would be impossible for any one else, and yet make money at it. j ~~S IKIXSH ■ 4 BOVVLBY j'yi^jr>Jj^ Third I tors. jmJr* *Z) # Robert. i L MAIL ORDERS ffa^ff^^^^^ | UNEMPLOYED ARE PAID THEY GET 51,291 FOR WOISK.

The only business before it was the passage of the pay roll of the employed "unemployed,"amount ing to $1,294.48. This was the pay of 202 men. This week about the same number of men will be employed. The superintendent made au inter esting report. The report stated that 1,000 feet of roadway through Coino park, eighteen feat wide, had been graded. The superintendent suggested that the woik of the "unemployed" was expensive, and ought not to be charged to the "unemployed," but to "charity." The superintendent was authorized to arrange tor the construction of a 1.200-foot track and ten cars to assist in constructing the approach to Coino. The superintendent also reported what men were at work at South street aud hake Drive in elevating the drive way around the lake at this point.
