This Year. ■
The churches of St. Paul will to
morrow observe the day set apart
by law and custom as a propitious
season for returning thanks for past
gratitudes by special song services
and appropriate sermons. Returning
prosperity, after the recent financial
depression and Its attendant suffer
ings, has made manifest anions the
churches in particular a desire to
observe the season in its fullest
meaning. Being pre-eminently a day
for family gatherings, many of the
church organizations have made ar
rangements for joint services, sup
plemented by extensive and appro
priate musical programmes. The
Episcopalians will in .nearly every
instance hold services in their edi
fices, and in most of them extra
musical numbers will be rendered
by the choirs. Probably the most
elaborate song service will be given
at Christ church, where the vested
choir of fifty voices will render the
Processional hymn, "Come*. Ye
Thankful People, Come;" litany
hymn. "Savior, When in Dust to
Thee;" hymn, "To Thee, O Lord, Our
Hearts We Raise;" offertory anthem,
"Ye Shall Go Out With Joy." J. Burn

of the day. and the choirs will present
programmes of unusual beauty and
solemnity. -.•"•." : •
At the cathedral. Rev. Father Kef- j
fron will celebrate solemn high mass
and deliver the usual . Thanksgiving
sermon. The consolidated choir will
render "Hayden's Mass No. 2," in ad-
dition to several solo numbers. -
The St. Anthony hill churches, in
cluding the Dayton Avenue Presbyter-
ian, Woodlawn Park Baptist, Chris-
tian and the First Methodist, will join
in a union service at the Dayton Ave
nue church at 10:30. Rev. Addison
Moore will preach upon- the topic:
"God in American History," and -the
choir has carefully prepared Watson's
"O. Worship the Lord," and Claire's
"The Eyes of All Walt on Thee."
The Central Presbyterian, Central
Methodist and First Baptist churches
of lower town, have also arranged for
a similar service^ which will be held
at the Central Presbyterian church.
Rev. J. W. Conley will officiate in the
pulpit, and the First Baptist quartette
will occupy the choir loft, rendering
"Honor . the Lord With Thy Sub-
stance," by Staener, and several other
selections. • Miss -Eva M. Alcott will
also sing McFarren's soprano solo,
"The Lord Is My Shepherd."
All the Congregational congregations
will unite in a special Thanksgiving
service at the Plymouth church at .11
o'clock. In place of the ordinary ser
mon the different pastors will discuss
briefly, "Our Pilgrim Blessings, Past
ami Present." Here, as in the other
churches, particular attention has been
given to the music for the occasion,
and the several choirs will lend their
best voices to assist in a programme
of choice selections. • • ■ •
On the West side a joint service, par
ticipated in by the Clinton Avenue
Methodist, Hebron Baptist and West
minster Presbyterian churches, will
be held at the Clinton Avenue edifice
at I*J:3O a. m. Rev. George C. Gam-
ble will discourse upon a Thanksgiv
ing subject, while the music will be
rendered by the Clinton Avenue choir.
Union services will also be held at
the Emanuel Baptist church on West
Seventh street by the several Protest-
ant denominations in that portion of
the city. Rev. C. C. Martin will preach
the sermon of the morning, the consol
idated choirs furnishing the music.
The Burr Street Baptist and the
Grace Methodist congregations will
unite at the Burr street church and
listen to a sermon by Rev. George L.
The following musical numbers will
be rendered by the House of Hope
choir at the special morning service,
when Dr. Egbert will preach upon the
topic, "We Look for a New Heaven
and a New Earth:"
There was some controversy over this
part of the testimony, and Judge Egan
remarked: "Well, what did he pre-
scribe it for then?"
Mr. Thompson took strong exceptions
to this pointed question on the part of
the court, and Judge Egan thereupon
instructed the reporter to make it a
matter of record that the court knew
nothing about the properties of the
medicine in question.
Dr. William H. Sigler, who attended
Clara Bergh during the first part of her
illness, testified to having attended her
at the Globe hotel on June 19, when a
child was prematurely born. - .-
Mr. Thompson here remarked that in-
asmuch as. it was almost 5 o'clock and
it would take him about a day to cross-
examine Dr. Sigler, he would like to
have the court adjourn, and begin the
cross-examination the first thing in the
morning. The request was granted
and court adjourned.
The Relief society will, as usual, do
much towards making Thanksgiving a
holiday worthy of its name among the
less fortunate families of the city. But
the contributions that will pass through
the society's hands are made exclu
sively by the children of the public
schools. This practical plan of devel-
oping the children's humanity and sym
pathy was inaugurated but a few years
ago. It has been entered into with un-
expected zest on the part of the pupils,
and their contributions, especially since
the panic of 1593, have made Thanks
giving a day of welcome abundance
among the distressed families of St.
So general and so generous has been
the response of the public schools on
this day that the work has been monop
olized by them to the exclusion of all
churches, Sunday schools, or charitable
associations. The only co-operaticm
proffered by the churches will be in tha
nature of a Thanksgiving offering to
be made tomorrow by almost c.cry
congregation. This offering will be
handed over to the relief society. 7 .'7
The number of families which will
be remembered today Is slightly less
than a year ago. The diminution, how
ever, is not marked, the total number
of families being still about 125. Con-
trary to the practice last year, th&
schools will assist no families not men- i
tioned in the lists provided by the Hu-
,!i-u!.. -i' ty. Every school has ask id
JJor and received ;•. certain number of
•aamcc, cad *.-. thu:t enabled to pro-vide

the work. -The scholars lc -an Sending**

except that, owing to the relatively
high price of f val this fall, many pupils
have sent ready money to be. expended
for coal and wood. Weed. is, it is true,
no dearer, but coal costs several more
dollars per ton than it did twelve-
months ago. For the rest, the gifts.in-
elude articles of clothing, and well
nigh everything in the way of food-
turkeys, chickens, meats, potatoes, tur-
nips, cabbages, rice, canned goods,
bat)ana«, grapes, apples, coffee, tea,
sugar, etc. Mr. Hutchins would be
glad to receive mere contributions of
meat, 'especially of* roast beef, when*
pupils do not send turkeys or chickens.
The. total value- of the many gifts sent
in last year from the public schools
was no small sum, and hundreds of.
dollars' worth of food will no doubt be
given this year.
Mr. Hutchins desires that a repre
sentative of every family on his lists
shall call at Relief hall, 141 East Ninth '
street, between 10 a. m. and 4 p. m. to-
day. Each will he generously provided
for. It is hope.!, however, that all ap
plicants Will come today and not put
off their visit until tomorrow.

To Open the Season With Huh
Rood sit Lindstram.
The St. Paul Rabbit club has at last !
emerged from its retirement, and the |
members announce that they are in |
for a season which shall, by comparU j
son, make all past seasons tired. Peo- |
pie who know nothing about the Rab- j
bit club will hardly appreciate the sig
nificance* of this intention. The first |
meeting of the season will begin oh '
Saturday evening at the haunt of !
"Gus" Reed, who resides at Lind- !
strum, this state. Many people do not, I
know "Gun," but the rabbit hunters j
know him we'll, and that Is all that is j
necessary. At the meeting a dozen ap- .
plications for membership will be act- I
ed upon by the five charter members, j
Judge Nethaway, W. A. Russell,
Frank ' Greene, Ed Whitaker, Ben i
Brunson and the inimitable "Gus.". ;
Two matters will come up for action.. I
-One is the adoption of a rule setting;
the hour for taps at 9:30, but a/3 Judge I
H. W. Cory and Cal. Stone have re- !
ccntly " been made members, it Is j
thought the' vote will be against this;" j
The other matter will be acted upon;
in executive session, but it has some- ■
thing to do with what shall be done ;
to A. W<. Keuhncw when . he comes j
down from Duluth to a meeting.
The "meeting will he opened with the •
refrain, joined in by all those members- |
who can * sing, "Oh, we won't do a'- j
thing with old Ed Yv Intake*.*," etc. A |
.supply of ammunition has been ordered :
and it is expected that by next sea-.
son the club will possess three thar- J
oughbred beagles with which the i
sport can- be ; carried on to better ad- j
vantage. • .1

The Great ' Trainer Tells Things
"Worth Knowing:. ".'.'
In these days when every city of
the size of St, Paul has a great num
ber of electric cars running through
its main, business thoroughfares, and
innumerable bicycle riders circling
through its pleasure drives, horse
lovers as well as owners should learn
how to handle their horses perfectly.
In doing so they may prevent a seri
ous accident to themselves and pen-
haps , their family. Your horses
should be properly introduced to you
as. it. were, so that they will know
who you really are, and just what
to expect from you. There will be
a chance for every one to learn this
important lesson Saturday night
next at the Auditorium, when Oscar
R. Gleason, the acknowledged great-
est horseman of the age, will not
only subdue but educate and drive
all the vicious and unmanageable
horses that are brought to him, as
well as handle the hitherto un-
tamable horse called "Jack the Rip-
per." It is a thrilling sight to see
him handle man-killing biters and
kicking brutes, and the spectator
passes an evening that is full .of
excitement from the moment Glea-
son steps into the ring until the fin-

It was an interesting session— that
i It was an interesting session— that
of the Parker retrenchment commit
tee yesterday. afternoon. The monot
ony of quizzing city officials and lis
tening to their explanations of the
conduct of their departments ceased.
Instead, the committee "questioned a
number of heavy tax-payers, and lis
tened with eager interest to their
opinions, recommendations and sug
gestions regarding the problems of
. The main purport of all the ques
tions put to the tax-payers was
whether the city government of St.
Paul could be efficiently conducted
or administered at a material reduc
tion in the present expense thereof.
The six tax-payers were unanimous
in answering this question .in the
affirmative. The first question that
Col. Clough put to each citizen was
whether, in his opinion, the compen
sation of all public servants ought
not to be regulated by the market
price of labor and services prevail
ing in the world of private enter
prises. Then followed questions de
signed to reveal the great drop in
wages during the past few years, the
necessity for the city's, abandoning
all extension. of private work, the
need of reducing the taxation. ..The
citizens were also invited to express
their opinions upon the street light
ing question, and all agreed that it
-would be unwise for the city to -own
its own lighting plant, as the work
could be done far cheaper .by.con
tract. . ■ -> -7 ...j777c7
The committee did not finish. with
the tax-payers and accordingly, ad
journed until 3:15 p. m. today, when
any and all tax-payers are invited
to attend the meeting and give the
committee the benefit of their views
MR. DAWSON'S IDEAS." "
William Dawson Sr.7wj**vs the first
citizen called upon. for an expression
of opinion. Mr. Dawson said:, y.y..
"Before I became a member .of the
city government I criticised . the. 'gov-.
ernment more than I would now. .The
difficulty we all have to contend with
is that the present pay o.f, nearlyl", all
the departments was' established dur
ing boom times'. When times became
hard, 'private! enterprises had the power
to reduce expenses; the city did net.
I do not say, forl instance, that $75. a
month is . too much pay for "a ' police
man. But 'can the taxpayers afford to
pay the salaries that are new being
paid*? That Is the .9.11 csv,; a." ... ..*-.
- were than read.. '.whig the
salaries paid to policemen in the vari
ous cities of the* country ..".'.'■ .- -•••'
'Mi-.. Dawson si-aid that. the. salaries
paid by the city government ought net
to he any larger than the. market price
cf services prevailing in private busi
ness would warrant. In other words,
the market price. ought to be a criter
ion. " *. ' :.y
Mr. Dawson said that his remarks
concerning the police department ap
plied with equal, if not mere, force to
all the other city departments...- Mr.
Dawson was of the opinion that* wages
generally, both for skilled and un-
skilled labor, had dropped 33. 1-3 per
cent. Referring to the wages paid by
the Bank of Minnesota,. . Mr. Dawson
said that they never were high, and
consequently the bank had "not red 'iced
them when, the depression came.
Banks, however, paid higher wages
than soma of the wholesale establish
ments. "' . .
Mr. Dawson said that it should, be
taken Into consideration in fixing
wages at the present time, that it costs
a great deal less to live now than it
did five or six years ago.»
Mr. Dawson, then' referred to tha
work of the. city engineer's department.
He thought that wooden ' sidewalks
ought to be discontinued. They cost
the city more than ?10,000 a year in
judgments for personal injuries. In
Mr. Dawson's opinion, brick sidewalks
would be a great improvement. "
City Engineer Rundlett suggested
that tile and cement sidewalks . were
better than brick sidewalks.
* Mr. Dawson considered that the city
had spent a great deal too much money
in grading the roadways at too great
a width. Mr. Dawson added that the
time had come when the city must
pause in the work of grading new
streets. In the business center there
were streets that need repaying, and,
of course, that work must be done.
Regarding the government machin
ery' of St. Paul, Mr. Dawson said he
thought that the county and city gov
ernments ought to be consolidated. The
plan of advertising and collecting spe
cial' assessments had always seemed
to him absurd. rf-
At this point Chairman Parker read
from City Comptroller McCardy'-s com
munication to the committee setting
forth the advantages that would re
sult' if the present cumbersome method
of advertising and collecting special
assessments were done away with.
_, WILLIAM B. DEAN CALLED.*.
William B. Dean was the next to give
nic committee his ideas regarding an
economical administration of the city
government. Mr. Dean spoke first of
Hie efforts of the legislative delegation
in 1890, to formulate a charter, such as
would be satisfactory and suitable. The
diversity of views and also of interest
among the members prevented the for
mulation of a charter that would ac
eimiplish all that was desired, y;- ;.vf.
Referring to the compensation of
public officials, Mr. Dean was of the
Same opinion as Mr. Dawson, that the
Market price of labor prevailing In pri
vate business should be the true crite
rion of compensation of public officials.
Mr. Dean also thought that all exten
sion of public works ought to stop at
once. Referring to the plan of issuing
a year in advance tax levy certificates
of indebtedness, Mr. Dean said that he
believed that the city ought to be re
duced to what is known as the system
Of "cash basis," Instead of running the
city on borrowed money drawing $70,000
interest a year. . ; ::'; y':.'- ':
Mr. Dean, when asked for his opinion
concerning the lighting question, said
that he did not deem it desirable for
the city at present to conduct any.pub
lic work, that can be performed .'by
contract. Much money had been ex
pended uselessly. If the city were out
of debt and. had money to burn It might
try the experiment of operating; its
own lighting plant, but under the pres
ent condition of indebtedness such an
experiment would be ' fraught with
great hazard. .;..'* '•' \ ■'-.-'.. .. A,<v-.-.
A. H. LINDEKE QUESTIONED.
A. H. Lindeke then took the chair.
Mr. Lindeke thought that the market
price of labor ought to regulate the
• salaries of the majority of public offi-
sMals, but not the compensation of po
licemen and firemen, who hazard their
1( lives. Mr. Lindeke also thought that
thpse who fill elective offices and are
obliged, uni'er the present system in
vogue in this country, to spend large
sums of money during a campaign,
should be excepted to a considerable
extent from the application of" the
market price rule', though in case of a
'■• general depression and reduction of sal-
aries, city officials should submit to a
: proportionate reduction all around.
• Mr. Lindeke was opposed to further
extension of public work. He thought
the present 'conditions necessitated a
reduction of public expenditures, and a
corresponding reduction in taxation.
Mr. Lindeke thought that taxation
ought to be reduced, net by a rate of-
levy, but by a reduction In the assessed
valuation. There should be a reassess
. ment of property.
Mr. Lindeke' was utterly opposed to
the city Issuing any more bends, and
believed that as far as the lighting
question was concerned, that the city
ought to light its streets by contract
in preference to operating, a plant ol
its own. , -.'; "-V;;, " .7 "-•'-'•- .' - ' V 777
7*7 C. \V. -HACK-ETT'S VIEWS."
C. W. Hackett next responded to the
questions of the committee. Capt.
Hackett agreed with the others that
the market price of labor .should lie the
standard of compensation paid by the
city government. He did not think
that any additional compensation
should be allowed to reimburse elec
tive officers for the expense incurred by
them in their campaigns. Wages gen-
erally had dropped nearly 50 per cent,
: and salaries, meaning thereby the com-
pensation paid by the month to clerks
; and Indoor employes generally had
I fallen off 25 pan- cent. The supply, how-
■ ever, of all kinds of labor was plentiful.
Capt. Hackett thought that all exten
sion of public work should cease and
! that no more wooden sidewalk's should
j be laid.
Capt. Hackett said that it seemed to
him that if taxation was not reduced
; ruin stared the city in the. face. He
I I thought that the pruning knife should
: be put in as deep as possible for the
: purpose of cutting off expenses, but
j how deep he could not say. Capt.
j Hackett believed with Mr. Lindeke
j that there should be a revaluation of
1 property, which would effect an equal-
j ization all ever the city.
j KENNETH CLARKE'S. OPINIONS.
I . Kenneth Clarke, who is a member
: of . the beard of fire commissioners,
'. when asked for hi**- opinion**, said that
■': the, city ought to stop all public im-
!. provements except to provide for an
'] increase in the water supply. As to
*■* .the proper standard of wages of pub-
i lie* employment, Mr; Clarke thought
• , that the market price ought to regu
■l date -public compensation. Not a cent
| should be allowed elective officers for
A the personal expense.*- and difficulties
-| preceding and attending their election.
■-' ; Mr. Clarke thought the taxen ought
j to lie reduced one-third, and be thought
'a this could he done without impairing
•j .the efficiency of the present service.
j I Concerning the lighting question, Mr.
| Clarke said that it would be absurd
: ;f oh. ike. city to cwn . its own plant.
°-\ Competition would result in far Ices
| expense to the' city.'. '\ '""
\ '" N. P. LANGFORD, TOO.
I N. P. Langford followed Mr. Clarke.
. Mr. Langford said that if the asse*£i*.ed
•! valuation of city property, amounting
A to $120,000,000, should be $60,000,000 in-'
:i | stead, then the - city was paying the
•' state twice as much tax as it ought to
pay. Mr. Langford thought that tax-
• ation ought to be reduced one-third.
j The valuation should 'be low and the
rate of levy high. „
• The committee then adjourned until
•| 3:15 p. m. * today, when! any 'and all
j other taxpayers are invited to proffer
•' views and suggestion!?. '•/.;.- H-: -■■■

I Syckle Lloyd, of New York city, took
j place at the home of the bride, 839
; Osceola avenue, last evening at G
! o'clock. The ceremony was per-
j formed by Rev. William Lord, of the
y Unitarian church, in the presence
of only the immediate friends of the

i stood. Then came the ushers, Messrs. *

i her father entered, the bridesmaids
j closed in, and the party proceeded to
