Minneapolis News,
The city council last evening passed
The city council last evening passed
favorably upon the asphalt contracts.
In awarding the contracts the council
has practically invited the mayor to
veto the resolution, as he has virtually
declared he would do. This veto will
be reported to the council next Friday
afternoon when fhe next meeting is
held. And then well, and then no one
knows what will happen, but it is sus
pected that the veto will not be sus
The Trinidad Asphalt company se-
cured the contract for paving the
down-town streets' having street car
tracks. The price of the bid was $2.45
per square yard. The Assyrian As-
phalt company will lay Utah lime
rock asphalt on streets without car
tracks for $2.40 per yard. The vote
by which the award was made was 16
to 9, or two over the necessary ma-
The matter, however, was not de-
cided without some exciting times.
Four of the special committee on pay-
ing offered a minority report for adop
tion. Aid. Harvey made the time-hon-
I ored fight in behalf of brick on Wash-
ington and Second avenues south.
But as the council had already selected
asphalt for these streets the effort was
futile. The alderman wanted bids so-
licited anyhow, but his prayer was
drowned out in the complete overthrow
of the minority report.
Aid. Durnam, chairman of the paving
committee, said the matter had been
constantly before the council since De-
cember, and all the mistakes made had I
been remedied at the suggestion of the
mayor. If the matter were delayed long-
er it meant no pavement during the
summer. The chairman repeated his
arguments made in committee the day
previous, and declared it would be un-
businesslike to again postpone action.
The contracts were then approved.
Aid. Rand created a decided sen-
Aid. Rand created a decided sen-
sation immediately after roll call by
offering an odd motion. The alder-
man, grabbing eagerly at the possible
good results of a new application of
the "X" ray, wants the interior work-
ings of the council meetings photo-
graphed and held up to public view.
With due respect to the reporters pres
ent, the alderman thought the city
fathers had been misrepresented by
some of the papers.
Wherefore, Aid. Rand Introduced his
novel "X" ray measure. He moved
that hereafter the city clerk be direct-
ed to employ a stenographer, whose
especial function was to take a ver
batim report of the council meeting
under oath, these reports to contain
all remarks, speeches, resolutions, mo-
tions, etc.; two copies to be made
the day succeeding each meeting, one
copy to be filed with the city clerk,
and the other to be posted in the al
dermen's committee room for public
He said, in explanation: "I hope this
motion will receive the sanction of the
members of this council. By so doing
errors which have been made in the
past will be avoided, and we will have
irrefutable evidence always open to in-
spection as to the proceedings of this
body. Mistakes and misrepresenta
tions have been made, even by the
reporters of the papers. We want
everything said on this floor to go on
record." . ;: :
Aid. Loye could scarcely believe his
ears. 'Do you mean every thing you
say?* he asked Aid. Rand, incredu
"I do," replied Rand.
"Well, well," and Aid. Loye express
ed considerable surprise In his tones, as
he continued, "I have heard things
said on the floor of this council which
would not look well In print, things
which are not creditable to those who
said them."
"I admit all that," replied Aid. Rand.
"but after the experience I have had
recently, I think such a measure is nec
essary. My experience has been severe.
It will be a warning calculated to make
us all careful of our language."
"Then, in hopes it will be a warning,
I indorse the alderman's remarks," re-
plied Aid. Loye again. "I remember
times when the lie has been passed be
tween members of this body, and other
remarks not fit for publication. If a
stenographic report would make us
careful, I am in favor of such a prop-
osition." vy.
City Clerk Haney, replying to Aid.
McAllister, said it would cost from $50
to $75 per meeting, or about $5,000 per
year. *?.;,;• yy
Aid. McAllister was honest enough to
remark he believed in calling a spade
a spade. If an alderman called an-
other a liar, he thought the remark
should be backed up. However, he de- ]
clared the reporters had always been
fair, and did not think Aid. Rand's pro
posed innovation necessary.
After more debate the "cathode mo-
tion" was referred to a special commit
tee, on motion of Aid. Foote. The com-
mittee is as follows: Rand, chairman;
Long, O'Brien, Jennings, Adams, Har
vey, Colburn, Miner, Rhode, Schwartz,
Skoog, Dickenson, Currier.

No Cash Paid to Billings for Bribing?
- Jurors.
Assistant County Attorney Peterson was
sworn in the Billings perjury case yesterday.
In some manner the receipt which Billings
had given Mr. Dodge had been lost, and the
witness swore It was handed him by Mr.
Dodge, and had been used before the grand
Jury, but had been lost ln some way. T. E.
Byrnes was then sworn, and testified that he
had seen the receipt, and had handed it to Mr.
Mr. Larrabee cross-examined and wanted to
know Mr. Byrnes' interest in the case. There
were objections by Mr. Nye. "I am willing to
answer," said the witness. "I am here to do
i all I can to help Mr. Dodge In both these
, eases, which is consistent with truth and
"So long as you do that," said Mr. Larrabee,
"we will be satisfied."
Mr. Peterson was then recalled and stated
1 that the receipt stated that it was for work ln
, connection with three separate cases, which
were specified and for which Frazer had paid
Billings the money.
Judge Wendell said that Billings met him
j Sunday and asked him where the jury was in
the Zech case. . Witness told him the Jury was
at the hotel, and afterward saw Billings at
the Park hotel, where the jury was. Witness
! met Howard, who said to him: "Have you
' seen Billings up here?" That was Monday
A number of people were sworn to prove that
; Frazer was in Fargo Dec. 7, and then Col. W.
E. Dodge was sworn. He made emphatic de
; nials of all the charges of Billings. He had
! some dealings with him some time ago, but
: had little to do with him of late until Billings
came to his office one day in February, when a
I claim was made for his services. He had given
j Billings a check and told him to send him an
I Itemized receipt. That receipt he had not
I seen until it was shown him in the grand jury
! room. Witness positively denied having au
j thorized Billings to use his influence with
j Otto. No money was ever paid Billings for
any work in the Zech case.
Plaintiff in the Lockwood Case
Complete*! Her Testimony.
The court overruled the objection of the at-
torneys for the defense to the testimony in the
! Lockwood damage case • yesterday, and the
plaintiff was placed on the stand to tell her
j own story. The evidence was directly in line
! with the complaint in the case, accusing the
i Lockwood family, father, mother and daugh-
I ter, of having made her life unhappy, and was
| confined to little unpleasant domestic scenes,
I after her marriage with her husband, when
I she went to live with her parents-in-law. The
i evidence was all taken subject to the objec
| tions of the counsel for the defense, under the
', general claim that It was incompetent and Im
| material. Witness stated that she was finally
i compelled to leave the Lockwood house, and
j she went to a friend of hers, a Mrs. Bishop,
; where she remained for some little time, and
then went to the West hotel.
Dr. James W. Dudley, who had attended
Mrs. Lockwood, testified to her condition when
he attended her. She was nervous and ex-
citable. William J. Bishop testified that the
plaintiff was ill when she came to his home.
He also swore that young Lockwood had told
him he was about to separate from his wife
because of trouble at the house.
Dr. Thomas S. Roberts was called to give
expert testimony. He stated that his bill
for attendance on Mrs. Lockwood had been
paid by Lockwood.
The New Association Incorporated
—Scope of Its Work.
The association for carrying on the "De-
troit plan" met at the rooms of the Minneap
olis board of trade last evening and adopted
i articles of incorporation, as submitted by the
committee appointed a week ago for that pur-
pose. The name selected is "Farm and Gar-
I den Aid Association of Minneapolis." Its
general purpose is stated to be to encourage
a spirit of thrift and self-dependence among
all persons without means who shall avail
themselves of the benefits of the association;
to assist all such persons to become self-sup-
porting, by acquiring land by lease, purchase,
or otherwise: to furnish such persons with
means to cultivate such land as gardens or
farms or otherwise by agricultural pursuits
and to carry out the plans of the organiza
tion, by any means available.
■The duration of the association is fixed at
thirty years, and the officers for the first year
are: President, Robert Pratt; first vice presi-
dent, S. A. Stock well; second vice president,
A. S. Lovett; secretary, E. E. Haskell; treas
urer, A. M. Hove, the other members being
Dr. H. N. Avery. F. B. Snyder and W. B.
Murray. The matter of securing permits for
the use of land was brought up and put over
for two weeks, at which time the association
will meet again at the same place.

"For the last reason, since war should only
touch combatants, and it is inhuman to make

you to retrace your steps, if you admit your
guilt, or repress crime with a heavy hand
that were committed without your consent. At
all events, take care that no drop of blood be
shed outside the battle field; be merciful to

protection of Egypt from dervish raids, as
besides being convenient to the base of hos-

Meeting of Crowned Heads at Which
the Triple Alliance AVill Be
Again Ratified, y V:'
ROME, March 13.— Out of the terrible
storm of popular anger, which swept
over Italy ' when the news of the de-
feat of the army, under Gen. Baratieri,
reached here, little remains but a feel-
ing of great resentment against the
Italian commander. All rioting has
ceased. The reservists who fled from
the country sooner than go to Africa, at
the call of the government for the class
| of 1872, are returning, and it is not be
| lieved any steps will be taken to pun-
ish them. Negotiations with King Men-
elik have been opened. It is anticipat-
ed that peace will be concluded before
leng, and the war office has counter-
manded the instructions sent to vari
ous points for the hurrying forward of
reinforcements to Africa. The new cab-
met is settling down to work and the
financial situation is brighter than an-
ticipated. Under these circumstances
Italy breathes freer than for some time
past, and there is a feeling of grati
tude for those who have aided in Ber
lin, during the past few days, in bring-
ing about this change from blank de-
spair to great hope in the future.
The conferences which have taken
place here recently between the Mar-
guis dl Rudlni, the new premier, and
the Duke of Sermoneta, with King
Humbert, and the constant exchanges
of telegraphic messages between this
city and the German capital, have been
coincident with the meetings of Berlin
of the Austrian minslster for foreign
affairs, Count Goluchowski, the Ger-
man foreign minister, Baron Marschall
yon Bieberstein, the Italian ambassa-
dor to Germany, Count Lanza di Busca,
and the imperial chancellor, Prince
Hohenlohe, supplemented by audiences
with Emperor William. Out of
all these exchanges of views, it is
believed, has grown a much
healthier state of affairs for all Eu-
rope. The German emperor is under-
stood to have been somewhat, if not en-
tirely weaned from his longings for
closer relations with Russia and a pos
sible alliance of three emperors.and the
attitude of Germany towards Great
Britain, it is anticipated, will undergo
a change for the better.
This is due to the fact, according to
report, that Great Britain, when the
situation was outlined to her from
Berlin.before the arrival there of Count
Goluchowski, promised loyal support
for the Italians in the emergency and
took steps to order an advance up the
Nile from Wady Haifa, towards Don-
gola, of a strong column of British-
Egyptian troops to act as a diversion,
and prevent the concentration of the
natives for a Joint attack upon the
Italians. An Italian loan, it is further
stated, could have been floated in Lon-
don and the half-pledged support of
Great Britain to the dreibund, a sup
port hitherto involving little else than
an irritating uncertainty, is rumored
to have developed into a much more
cordial and solid understanding with
the powers forming the drelbund. Both
Emperor Francis Joseph and Emperor
William are praised for this result, as
it is known that they have striven
night and day since the storm broke to
relieve the strain here, which, at one
time", was severe enough to threaten
the foundation of the throne. In fact,
now that the crisis is over, it is ad
mitted that King Humbert at one time
was face to face with the possibility of
outbreaks, serious enough to develop
anything. This condition of affairs, of
course, was greatly to the advantage
of the Socialists, who profited by it to
obtain concessions which they could
not otherwise have commanded.
To cap the peaceful climax comes
this morning that Emperor William
of German, Emperor Francis Joseph
of Austria and King Humbert of
Italy will meet in Genop, in a few days,
and that a series of brilliant fetes
will mark this ,public proof .of the
renewal of the (ties * which compose
the driebund, which ;is intended to
demonstrate to all whom it may con-
cern that Italy.instead of being friend-
less, on the verge of bankruptcy, and
encumbered by a , tottering throne, Is
strong in the earnest support of Ger-
many and Austria, and will be
in any great emergency. That the
latter report is true is no longer doubt-
ed here, and it is added that a Brit-
ish naval squadron will be ordered to
Genoa upon the occasion of the meet-
ing of the emperors and King Hum-
bert, in order to openly demonstrate
Great Britain's sympathy with Italy
and the drelbund. Finally, it is said
that before the emperors meet at
Genoa, Emperor Francis Joseph will
have succeeded in entirely reconciling
Queen Victoria with her imperial
grandson, and so the peace of Eu-
rope, it is hoped, ' will be further cc-
mented, and the possibility of an Eu
ropean war will be driven further and
further into the background.
Orders have been sent from the war
office to Massowah that the reports of
Gens. Baldissera and Baratieri on the
defeat of the Italians at Adowa, are to
be supplemented by the forwarding to
this city of a number of important
witnesses of the engagement. It was
at first intended to court-martial Gen.
Baratieri at Massowah; in fact, that
plan had not been entirely abandoned,
but there were so many utterances of
disapproval „in the press that
it is understood' that Gen. Ri-
cotti has decided- to have the unfor
tunate officer tried in public, and in
this city. There, is a strong effort,
however, among military .men to have
the trial conducted in secret, as it
is feared that revelations may be made
which will not tend to strengthen the
case of Italy before the world. But
the general public demands publicity
in the matter, and it is believed the
war authorities will: have to bow to
the popular will. -„ • .'.;.-..-•?*.'..

Mrs. J. A. Sample of 1558 Broadway,

condition was due to indigestion. Here

arising from indigestion and poorly
nourished nerves.
"I should add that my granddaugh

puny at the age of ten as to cause us
the greatest anxiety. We had no diffi
culty in inducing her to take Paine's
celery compound. Today the roses
bloom in her cheeks, and I never saw a
healthier, stronger child than Paine's
celery compound has made her."

Egyptian Troops Ordered to Ad-

nouncement made by the Times this morn-
,„*%£ i;he, E**p"Ptia» troops would advance

officially confirmed by the foreign office today!
The Times also said editorially of this an-

decided to grant amnesty to the participants

who have been elected since they were im-
prisoned. .
The Italia Militalre asserts that it has good
authority for stating that Emperor Menelik's
proposals of peace are honorable and advan
tageous to Italy.
The Tribuna fears that the proposals con-
ceal a snare, and asserts that Menelik is
simply seeking to gain time.
The '. Fanfulla, the clerical organ, learns
that the negotiations for peace are on the
same basis as those which were originally
started by ex-Premier. Crispi.
* The Riforma opposes a peace. Most of the
other papers, however, favor the conclusion
of peace.
It is learned that Marquis di Rudini has
promised the king not to take any proceed-
ings against Signor Crispi. The ex-premier
has informed his friends that his majesty
will Insist upon an energetic prosecution of
the campaign until Menelik has been crushed.
There is. however, good reason for supposing
this to be incorrect. Gen. Baratieri will ar-
rive at Naples on March 24, and will come
to Rome Immediately. . It is now improbable
that he will be tried by court martial. The
situation in Abyssinia is still extremely
serious. Everything depends on the result
of Gen. Baldlssera's efforts. Signor Crispi
is making strenuous efforts to overthrow the

Believed the Hawaiian Post "Will Be
Vacant for Some Time.
SAN FRANCISCO. March 13.— A special
from Honolulu to a local paper says: United
States. Minister. Willis has announced his in-
tention of leaving Honolulu April 15. This
statement, made in the face of the minister's
denunciation of a similar report, is construed
and generally believed that he will not re-
turn. Many of the people are of the opinion
that the American legation will be closed
for the remainder of President Cleveland's
term, in order to get even with the Dole
regime for criticising the action of Minister
Willis in refusing to acknowledge the Jan
uary celebration. Mr. Willis' departure is
looked upon as the only course left, as he
has been persona non grata from: the mo
ment-of his arrival. There has been more
or less talk of the Hawaiian government
giving Minister Willis his passports, and it
Is fair to surmise that Willis is leaving to
prevent such a contingency.
Separate Flag; for Norway.
CHRISTIANA, Norway, March 13.— The
odels thing, or lower house of parliament, of
vous system. Sleep alone rests this
vital organ, together with the nerves.
During the waking hours the nervous
system works incessantly. Poor sleep
means a poor nervous condition, and
prolonged insomnia leads in every case
to prostration, and too often to dread
insanity. The mischief that results
from weakened nerves is much greater
and more destructive than most folks
even dream of.
The all-Important thing for nervous,
rundown persons, and for those who
are losing sleep is that Paine's celery
compound builds up the whole phys
ical system, and by improving the di
gestion and regulating the nerves it
insures sound, refreshing sleep.
In winter most women and many
men lead hothouse lives. A flagging
appetite, a disposition to pick at this
dish and that, rather than to eat a
square meal, is among the early indi
cations of failing health. Then comes
delay in falling asleep and the fretful,
uneasy feeling the next day.
Deliverance from such a miserable
condition by the use of Paine's celery

Sir Richard Webster Replies to At-
tacks on the Venezuelan Blue
LONDON, March 13.— Sir Richard Webster,
attorney general, replying in the house of
commons to the criticisms upon alleged dis
crepancies in the Venezuelan blue book, said
that the reason all the quotations in the
preliminary statement were not found in the
appendix was that some of the documents
were not printed. He added that all of the
quotations will be found in the original docu
ments, of which a second collection will
shortly be published. Continuing, Sir Rich
ard Webster said that the only case of a
mistake was in a quotation in page five, on
which is a note giving general import mat-
ter, which was inadvertently included in the
textual quotation. .. "\
British Protests Against Another
Campaign in the Soudan. -
LONDON. March 13.— 1t is understood that
no British troops will engage in the advance
upon Dongola. The Chronicle, Liberal, loudly
protests against the proposed advance on
Dongola, -and tells the government plainly
that the country will not stand another Sou
dan expedition The Daily News, also Liberal,
in a similar tone, asks the government to
well consider before embarking on another
Soudan campaign.
The Times has an editorial discussing the
Italian situation, and declares that the shock
to European prestige, owing to the defeat of
Adowa, cannot be neutralized by Italy con
cluding a peace with Menelik. "And it is
doubtful even then if Italy would be able or
willing to hold Cassala," the editorial adds
and then proceetds as follows: "The ad
vance* upon Dongola is urgent in the in
terests of the British policy. It will pre
pare the way for the advance on Omdurman
when the time" is ripe, and the shattering of
the Mahdist power at its base." :y* yr-
Of Additional Reverses of Italians

LONDON, March 13.— government was
questioned in the house of commons today
regarding the sensational . reports circulated
by a news agency that the Italians had suf
fered additional reverses in Africa recently.
The under secretary of state for the foreign
offlce, George Curzon, in reply said that the
government had no news of the reported re
verses. Mr. Curzon also promised on Mon
day next to make a statement to the house
in regard to the report that British-Egyptian
troops were to be moved in order to make a
diversion, and thus assist the Italian troops
which had. been pressed by the Abyssinlans.
England Will -Guarantee It Upon

LONDON, March 14.— Pretoria dispatch to

Kruger the possibility of abrogating the con-

Uitlander grievances and grants the franchise
to British subjects. The dispatch also sug
gests a treaty of amity, by which England
shall guarantee the independence of the
Transvaal. President Kruger has Intimated
that he will reply to this in three days' time.
Preparations are afoot for President Kruger's

VIENNA, March 13.— An investigation into
the report circulated by a news agency in the
from every section of the United States
to write sincere,' hearty words of praise
and thankfulness for this grand in
vigorator. People enjoying perfect
health sometimes wonder at this grati
tude; but whoever has suffered from
prostration of the nerves, of which in
somnia is one of the symptoms, will
understand how hard it is to overstate
the torment of this condition. And
whoever has been made completely
well by Paine's celery compound, feels
that no words can overstate the joy
and gratitude such persons feel.
This is the state of mind of thou
sands of nervous, sickly, broken-down
persons who have used Paine's celery
compound and been made well.
Mrs. Sample tells of the happy result
in the case of her grandchild. One of
the most conspicuous instances -of the
remarkable power of Paine's celery
compound over debility is shown in the
relief it has afforded children. Of
course the dose is adapted to the age
of the little patient. The compound
purifies the blood and corrects any ten
dency to constipation. Pale, puny chil
dren are made vigorous, rosy and
healthy by this incomparable remedy. ,
