The. aldermen declared .themselves
last night In favor of a separate school
building in the Eighth ward, instead
of an addition to the Gorman school,
for which the sum of $15,000 has been
set aside in the tax estimate for 1896.
But the building is not! to be erected
upon the site first proposed, at the cor
ner of Albemarle and Wayzata" streets,
The aldermen have , viewed that site
and found it "a hole in the ground"
as one of them expressed it, and an un
fit location for a school building. -;
The committee :on . public buildings,
of which Aid." Kaldunski is chairman,
realizing that a proposition to erect
a schol building on the . proposed: site
would ' not meet with the approval of
the board, set about to secure a bet
ter site if possible. The result of the
committee's efforts appeared last night
in its report informing the board that
the John Martin Lumber company
stood ready to trade the city a piece
of property 133 feet square at the in
tersection of Atwater and Woodbridge
streets, in exchange for the city's prop
erty at the | corner of Albemarle and
Wayzata streets, which is 196 ;by 260
feet in size. The property of the John '
Martin company contains five lots and
that of the city eleven, but in the opin
ion of the aldermen who have viewed
both pieces of property, the piece at
the intersection of Atwater street and
Woodbridge is worth fully as much
as the larger piece at Albemarle and
Wayzata streets. ;
In order to clear the way for a reso
lution calling for a separate school,
the committee on public buildings first
recommended the adoption of a resolu
tion repealing the resolution authoriz
ing the erection of an addition to the
Gorman school. Such a resolution was
unanimously adopted.
Then the committee offered its report
recommending the section of the new
Bite offered by the John Martin Lum
ber company, which is said to be su
perior to the former site as the ground
is higher and dryer and the surround
ings free from the objectionable feat
ures so conspicuous at Albemarle and
Wayzata streets. - ; The ■ accompanying
resolution was In substance as fol
lows :
"Whereas the board of school inspec
tors in their report to the mayor
have stated that, in their Judgment,
more sittings are required to accommo
date the number of pupils attending
the public schools and residing # within
the territory bounded on ! the east ;by
Rice, on the west by Dale, on the north
by Maryland avenue and on the south
by the St. Paul, Minneapolis & Mani
toba tracks, and whereas, in ; order to
accommodate the , -number of pupils i
attending the public schools, it is nec
essary to erect a school building: i
Resolved, That the mayor and y-<wMi«at of
the school are hereby ordsisd to proceed to
obtain a suitable slto' *a>4 ' erect a suitable
building thererm *<iaicient to acommodate •
the puplk* Ntthin the district tributary to
the site so selected, such building to be con
structed in accordance with the plans and
specifications therefor, to be approved by the
board of school inspectors, and that the said
mayor and president of - the school board
shall proceed in all respects in the \ manner
required by law. ■ '.; ■.. % ..... . ■■>•■'•■ : *;■: "
It was noticeable that the preamble
to the resolution stated that. the school
board in its report to the mayor, as
serted that "more sittings are required'
to accommodate the number of pupils
attending the public schools and re
siding within ; the territory j bounded,"
&c. There was no allusion to the Gor
man school, although the school board,
in its report, referred ■ particularly to
the necessity of more j sittings to! ac
commodate the pupils attending the
Gorman school. ;
The board adopted the resolution by a
unanimous vote, and if the proposed
exchange of property proves, upon in
vestigation, to be to the interest and
advantage of the city,; it is likely that a
separate school building, will be erected
this summer at the corner of Atwater
and Woodbridge streets. - !
Aid. Bigelow*s bicycle ordinance
was the first Important measure "to
come before the board. The committee
on streets submitted a majority report
recommending its adoption. Aid. Blge
low moved that the rules be suspended
and the ordinance passed. .
Aid. Bell, of the committee on streets,
submitted a minority report, recom
mending the passage of . the j Markham
ordinance and moved its adoption.
Upon roll call the minority j report was
turned down by a vote of seven to
three. Aid. Bell, Doriahower and Presi
dent . Markham casting the only votes
in favor of the report.
Aid. Bigelow's motion to. suspend the
rules was carried by a vote of eight to
two, Aid. Bell .'and President Markham
voting in the negative. ; Aid. Bigelow's
ordiaance was then passed by the same
vote. '.'•';■ '■■ '.:.;■ .; ••; .. ■ :;■:■:f;;;. ijv.
This is the ordinance which does not

postponement of Aid. Lindahl's ordi
nance providing < that newly appointed

MORE PAVING PROPOSED.
Robert and Cedar Streets Cannot Be
Repaired.
The board of public works will grant
hearings today on the preliminary
orders for r paving ". Robert street from
Third to Eighth street, and .:'■ Cedar
street from % Third Jto Seventh street.
The former hearing will take place at "
10 a. m., and the latter at 2 p. m. To
morrow at ; 10 ;a." m. there will be : a
hearing 'on the' preliminary Order for
paving ; Minnesota street frorrf Third to |
Seventh street. ;'-'Jl.^ - .'.
Several preliminary orders for pav
ing these three streets have been passed
during the past eight or ■ nine months.
The' first three were received :by the
board of public works last: fall. ".;' Since
that time the old council sent to the
board of public works as many as three
preliminary - orders for I paving Cedar,
Minnesota and Robert streets. \ ; The
original order for paving Robert street
included practically the entire length of
the | street, extending from Third street
north to University avenue. v The : own
ers of abutting property above Seventh
street were unanimous in their opposi
tion to the proposed paving, but few
if any j objections ; were offered by the
owners of property along that portion
of the street between Third, and Sev
enth streets. >'• ;
In.the cases "of Minnesota and Cedar
streets the property owners r generally
opifosed the,. improvement • declaring
that it could be deferred for at least
another year.
As a result of the attitude of the
property - owners" the board of - public
works resolved to repair the pavements
on these streets jat the places most in
need of repair, and ';' accordingly the
city engineer put a force of ; men to
work on - Cedar street [ between Seventh
and Eighth streets, . with a view to » re
pairing the pavement. ■; Two days work
demonstrated :; that the '•• pavement :: was
too far gone to be patched up and con
sequently the board ordered the work
stopped, - believing that •>- the •; ':■■ repairs
would not prove successful, ;• owing to.
the rotten condition of the f wood ;pave
ment. This experiment has convinced
the board ( that the proper, course is to
repave Cedar, Minnesota ; and . Robert
streets, the | latter from Third to j Eighth
street, and accordingly will grant hear
ings to the property owners.

Some of the Cases - That ; Have Been ;
.. ..' Reported Through the News- ■- '
papers.
John Clark isn't chief of police of St.
Paul now. Neither Is John J. O'Connor
chief of the detective . department. If
these two ; : men " were in = office, it is
claimed that the . continual ;' round /of
burglaries that are taking place \ would
stop or a whole lot of men would be
making explanations as to their where
abouts these nights. But not a suspect
has . been ! arrested and: the detectives
are simply wondering how it 1 all hap
pens. •■"■'.■. ;;; ;. j.-f .>, '': .■''
' "Where did we , ; get ,; touched last
night" Is : the first question they -ask
each other these mornings when they
report for duty. Detective Campbell,
the Thiel man, who was appointed be
cause he knew so many crooks, has the
pawn shop.ruu. He also has a list, of
stolen; articles which he j hasn't been
able to turn up that is 1" as long as the
high bridge. . ' / yiv/r^ * ; !
' Chief of Detectives Schweitzer has a
j book ; in" which , a record of r burglaries
is kept. Its contents would make in
teresting reading, but only a burglar
can get at it. / Captain Chief Schweit
zer doesn't allow reporters to see it.
: It Is said that the way that book has
been filling up ha^s' given _ the / popular
officer f the chills. '^ One "gentleman said
yesterday that .he had it pretty straight
that over 100 cases of „ theft, mostly
burglaries, . had been reported -since the
change 'in the administration. But
never ; a word about any of them | has
been tipped off to a reporter. Any
time any thing; has appeared in either
of the two morning papers about a
burglary the! evenfng organ. of the city .
government / doesn't use : that kind of
news, it Is I accidentally picked up by a
reporter. It is therefore a matter of
conjecture just "how much fun these
night f.workers are having . to the an
noyance of the revised and reorganized'
police .: force: and the discomforts of the
citizens whose property is Iso | rapidly
disappearing. A., glance through the
files of the papers; however, show that
enough are happening to make people
wonder when they retire nights what
they will find missing J in the morning. V
: One of the most successful hauls
from a thief's standpoint was . that ob
tained at YE. R. Spirtdler's hardware
store. All kinds of cutlery was stolen.
A day or two later. Sergeant Flanagan
of the Margaret street station, who had!
been detailed on - the/ case rounded .up
the burglar, who has since bean dis
posed of by the court. ; The sergeant
also recovered all ■; of; the stolen prop- 1
erty. That is the only case reported in
the newspapers where the thief was :
caught. ' It was a clever piece of work
on the part of Sergeant Flanagan and
two • days • later he was discharged from :
the force 4by -^ s Mayor ;• Doran .* "for . the
good of the service." Mayor Doran, It
would seem .didn't want ?.-. any thief
catchers in , his 2if he had proof ',' that
they could round ;up such ■ men. V •:, -.
A day or two later it was reported
around i that > Mayor j Doran's ( son's res
idence | had been broken " into. '; It was '■■
gossiped among the 1 neighbors that be-,
side taking what they could get hold ;
of J the thieves § had broken a lot of
dishes in the house. ■•' The police denied
the story and so did Doran, Jr., so it 1
is possible'that it didn't happen. • But
a whole lot of people think it did just
the l same. ,,":
The Misses Stover's . residence, 60
! Summit - avenue, received an unv,-el
oome :call but the midnight ! marauders
didn't I get • much . booty.. It wasn't the
fault of ' the police, however, that very,
little! property was missing. ; Between
Summit , avenue and Central avenue
three; places were entered in one night.
From one of these l^rge quantity of '
clothing; was stolen while . all of them
suffered the loss d£~s»me goods.* '.
W. ;B. Bremmer, S33..Margaret street, \
reported the loss of p. pocket book con

KILLED DV A MOTOR TBAW.
1 Gum Andei'Doa Meets Death Suddenly j
at South St. Paul.
Gus Anderson,-a section hand in the
employ "of the Great Western railroad
near South. St. Paul, was run down by
an / Incoming : motor shortly after- 4j
o'clock yesterday afternoon, receiving ■!
injuries from which he died within an
hour.■■-; , ■■■■•«■ „.,■;■; ■. ; -
Anderson was working. with a track
repairing" crew about / half a * mile this
side of South St. Paul station. The
men were busily engaged in their -work,-,
when an approaching | switch engine
caused them -to . step • aside to . the ad
joining-track. The 4 o'clock motor had
I left the station a few minutes before
and was bearing down upon the men
at a rapid: rate of speed. Anderson and
a man named Smith were watching the
passing switch engine and failed to see
their danger. The : section boss realized
their peril/* however, and jerked Smith
from the track! in time . to •= save his life,
though the tender of the engine struck
his shoulder. as it passed. The next
instant Anderson was thrown down and
under the wheels. /.When, the train was
stopped andnAnderson taken from be
neath the trucks he was still alive,
though his bpdy was horribly mangled.
One leg had been completely severed
below the knee and the foot of the other
hung only by a few g shreds -. of; skin.
Closer examination showed a long gash
in the unfortunate man's forehead and
also a jagged cut at the base of the
brain. Unconscious and bleeding pro
| fusely Anderson was taken aboard „ the
i train and brought to the city. He was
removed to St. Luke's hospital, where
he died, without having regained con
sciousness, at half past 5 o'clock.
The engineer of the train which ran
over Anderson blew the whistle of his
engine in an endeavor to warn \ the en
j dangered man, but. to no purpose. The
I victim seemed not to hear the signal,
! probably. on account of the noise of the
two trains so close together, and before
the; air ; brakes could be applied the
train was upon him. •
The dead man was twenty-five years
of age and lived at South St. Paul with
a brother named ■ Oscar Anderson.' He
had been in this country; but a short
time, coming from Sweden about two
months ago.

A snapping, snarling pug .- dog be
longing to Mrs. ■ Patrick Diffley, who
keeps a boarding house at No. 20 West
College avenue, badly; frightened its
mistress and several of her neighbors
yesterday; morning by evincing signs of
rabies. • The first noticed of the ani
mal's peculiar actions was its desire to
bite at every _:. one who approached.
Later the dog left the house and was
forgotten about until one of the neigh
bor's children informed Mrs. /Limey
that "Top," as the brute was • called,
was running after pedestrians in front
of the house and badly \ frightening
them with his lolling tongue and snap
ping jaws. Mrs. Diffley called the dog
into the yard and was at once con
vinced that he had hydrophobia.:• He
was inveigled into a ;wood. shed, and a
policeman asked to shoot him. For
some reason or other the officer did not
comply with the wish .of the ' dog's ;
owner, and lup to 5 o'clock /yesterday,
afternoon the brute , was ■ still alive.
Three times- during/the day he suc
ceeded in" escaping from the wood shed,
much 1 to the; dismay of - Mrs. Diffley,
who feared that some one might be bit
. ten* by the suspiciously acting canine.

very promising young man. He was
one of a family of nine boys, most of

composure. Even when the doctor re
marked, "Kelley, did you ever see me
before?" he returned the gaze with in
terest and said, "No, I believe not."
He afterwards weakened and said that
a man in his position shouldn't talk
much. The doctor identified him, how
ever, to his own full satisfaction and
finally held a private interview with
the prisoner, the substance of which he
promised him he would not disclose.
Johnson was then brought out and
talked readily, confessing his connec

no firearms, that he was afraid to use
them, but was a bad enough boy in
other ways. He had remained on the
outside of the building when the shoot

suffering from nearly a, dozen shot

shadows of an awful punishment, Dr.
Foster left for home. Kelley is said to
be the fellow who fired the shots killing

STRI'CK A PEDDLER'S WAGON.
Michael Lovi.sk > In Hurt by a Street
Car.
Michael Lovisky, a peddler, living at
155 Indiana avenue, was run into by a
West Seventh street car yesterday
afternoon, a»d in addition to having
his wagon badly wrecked, was so in
jured himself as to necessitate the
services of the Margaret street patrol
wagon in removing him to his home.
While quite severely shaken up, it is
not thought that Lovisky's injuries are
of a dangerous nature.
Lovisky was driving west on Seventh
; street in the vicinity of Bradley street,
when the car, which was run by Motor
man Buck, struck the wagon squarely
in the rear. Lovisky was thrown vio
lently to the pavement, where he lay
for a short time, stunned by the hard
fall. The wagon was hurled aside
badly smashed, but the horse escaped
with only a few scratches. Motorman
Buck rang the gong on the car as
Lovisky started diagonally across the
track, but was unable to stop in time
to avoid the collision.
