Delegation of Citizens, Head ed by a Lawyer, Op posed the Move. KARTAK AND HIS NEW TILE. McCardy's Tax Estimate Made a Special Order For Jan. 1. It was evident that something was brewing last Bight when Aid. Kartak, of the Second ward, walked into the council chamber wearing one of those tint-topped still hats. It was a brand new hat and moat becoming to the alderman. Three or four of his con freres made a smash at it, but missed it, tor Aid. Ivartak was wary. The alderman looked slick. The barber had evidently got in his work. lie had crimped Aid. Kartak's mustache, powdered his complexion and revolu tionized his hair by parti.ig it on the other side. It was well. The alder man was there to see that ilamm's brewery, which ho remarked was an ornament to the city, did not get tbe worst of it. " Breweries, like ordinary individuals, need railroads. The Omaha runs through the town a tew blocks distant from Mr. Baiutu'a "establishment," as he terms it. The ''establishment*' need ed a spur track, and something over a year ago the common council voted to give it one. Then were protests from tlie property owners, but they availed not. But finally a nan named Uustafsou, despairing of any relief iroiu the coun cil, Applied to the Courts. The case, in time, reached the ■"u --pieme court, and that august body V cided that the council exceeded .is authority when it gave the ilaiuiu brew ery, a private corporation, permission to construct that spur railroad track which crosses Faiquier and Keaney streets, lint the brewery must have the track in order to do business. Consequently an ordinance was prepared giving the Otuaba railroad, a public corporation, tha right to construct and maintain tho spur track now in operation. This ordinance came before the board or aldermen last evening. Aid. Kartak', who was elected by the people of the ward where that track is located, did not know thai there was any objection to it. But there, was. The objection came frotn certain property owners rep resented by Owen Morris, their attor ney. instant after tho proposed ordi nance was read Aid. Lindahl. of the First ward, moved that "tlie people" be heard. Aid. Kartak thereupon arose and demonstrated that he possessed a com bination of powers of oratory and com mon sens?. He said: "This is a matter that concerns my ward alone! 1 was elected there by the people. But 1 have never heard of any objection to this track. Why didn't the.ie kickers come up and see me? Tl.ey haven't said a word to me. 1 move the adoption of the committee's report recommending that the Omaha road be permitted to construct this track.** Aid. Lindahl, who was elected by the male population of the First ward. Said That There Were People present who had something to *ay, and moved that they be heard. Aid. Hare, who represents the people, indorsed the motion. '-The people," he said, "should always be heard." They were. Attorney Owen Morris, who rppre rented some of them, arose. Mr. Morns explained that the spur track ran through a thickly settled portion of the city, and the property owners there ob jecte.l strenuously to the operation of the spur track. Two retail business men in the vicinity had testified in the original trial before Judge Otis that the cars crossed the street as often as eight times a day. The purpose of this ordi nance, he said, was to eel around the decision of the supreme court, and therefore the ordinance, if passed, would he void. Mr. Morris had scarcely sat down when a smooth-faced, shnrp-leatured German citizen arose and addresseu the aldermen. Lie resembled .Joseph Jef ferson as Kiu Van Winkle, not that he wa? drunk, or anything like it, for h« wasn't, but because he looked and talked like "Kip." He protested ve hemently against the "spur track," and, in a dialect that brought visions of the "fatherland" to Aid. Ehrmann traut, exclaimed: "D*?r city council hass no right to did dis." Mi". Hamin replied in a neat speech. He said that the records of the trial would show that the track was used, on an average, only sixteen times a month. Mr. Damn also called attention to the fact that the ordinance proposed to pro vide for public, not' a private, track, and that any concern would have the privilege of using it. Aid. Kartak, who was Harbored for the Occasion, then made another speech. He said to the aldermen: •The ilaiiiin brewery is a concern worthy of the support of our citizens. In the first place its plant is an orna ment to our city. It pays union wages, ana treats its men with consideration. Moreover Mr. ilamtit has never asked the city of St. Paul for a bonus, nor even a 5 cent piece. Who aid the ob jectors to this track? I have never seen, nor even heard from them until tonight. 1 think i ought to have some thing to say in my ward. 1 was elected there by the people to represent them. But nobody has said a word to me about this matter. 1 again move the adoption of the committee's report." In the meantime Aid. Markham had prepared an amendment calculated to bind the Urn aha railroad company. As amended the ordinance provides that the railroad company shall repair and maintain the track in such condition as shall guard the safety of the public; that the city shall have the right to re& ulate the construction of the street crossings, elevate or lower them, and order bridges constructed by the rail road company if necessary; "that the company shall Indemnify the < Itj against any action for damages incurred by accident, etc., anci that the ordl nance should Hot take <-fiVct until the Omaha railroad had liled it. The amendment was accepted, and then the ordinance was put upon its passage. Aid. Lindahl and Montgomery voted against it. but it was passed, for eight members of tliu board, Aid. Murphy be ing absent, voted "aye." The report of the conference commit tee on City Comptroller McCardv's tax estimate for lb!). r > was, on motion of Aid. Brady, made a special order for the next regular meeting, scheduled for Jan. l. The assembly ordinance requiring bill posters lo pay an auuual license of $50 was passed. . - ; ■ In conclusion, the aldermen voted THE SAINT PAUL DAILT GLOBE: WEDNESDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 19, T<n4. thnt hereafter all members of the board .should wear tiat-toppbd Htiff halt- a la Kartak—in order to promote and culti vate oratorical proficiency.

Yesterday the sub committee which had direct charge of the prosecution of alleged iraudulent cuttings was engaged in the prepara tion of a report to be submitted to the whole committee for adoption, and the work was progressing as rapidly as the laborious duties of the committee would permit.
