The canvassing board yesterday com
pleted the count of the votes cast in
St. Pavil and Ramsey county at the late

to change the complexion of the winning
ticket as announced in the Globe.

periodical circular to ticket agents and
conductors calilng attention to the fact
that the rules requiring the collection
of fares for children between the ages
of five and twelve years, is being al

As was expected, O. B. Lewis ten
dered his resignation as a member of
the assembly at the adjourned meeting
of that body last night. The resigna
tion was not read until all the business
of the evening had been disposed of. On
motion of Assemblyman Daly, it was
laid over until the next regular meet
ing one week from tonight, when the
assembly will elect a successor to Mr.
Lewis. The new member will be
George F. Dix, of the Sixth ward, as
the Globe of Tuesday announced.
The special joint committee appoint
ed to pass upon election bills, submit
ted a report recommending that the
judges of election who served four
days should receive as compensation
for their services the sum of $20 each,
and that the ballot judges and clerks
who worked only on election day and
night should be paid $6 each, that be
ing the average at 30 cents an hour.
The committee further recommended
that the sum of $20 be paid for the
rent of buildings used for election pur
poses, and that the sum of $5 be al
lowed for ground rent in all cases
where election booths were used.
The committee reported adversely on
all claims presented by constables ap
pointed by the judges to serve in the
voting places on election day. At the
meeting of the committee yesterday
afternoon a motion to allow the claims
of constables was lost by a tie vote,
Aid. Bigelow and Assemblymen Kirke
and Thompson voting not to pay them,
and Aldermen Bell and Larson and As
semblyman Craig favoring the pay
ment. The members opposed to the al
lowance of the claims maintained that
there was no necessity for employing
any constables, as was done in cer
tain precincts of the Fourth, Sixth and
Ninth wards.
The assembly, by a unanimous vote,
adopted the report, and confirmed the
action of the committee.
Tho saloon question again provoked
a discussion. It came before the as
sembly in the shape of a resolution from I
the committee on license approving the
bonds accompanying a number of ap
plications for licenses and issuing the
licenses. The resolution further pro
vides that in the future, not more than
one liquor license shall be issued to
each applicant and the license inspector
is instructed to require that the license
shall be conspicuously posted in each
The assembly granted without discus- '
sion all the applications save one made \
by individuals, but a batch of some i
nine or ten applications on the part of i
various brewing companies, occasioned i
some debate.
Mr. Lewis thought that it might be
well to grant the applications as the
city might lose the license money for
the length of time the saloons have
been in operation. But in the future
the city ought to inaugurate and ad
here to the policy contemplated by the
resolution. The applications of the
brewing companies were referred back j
to the committee, but were immediately
recalled and the licenses issued by a
vote of seven to two, Messrs. Kirke and j
Reardon voting in the negative.
The application of P. T. Conroy, for j
a license to conduct a saloon at Third ]
and Commercial streets, was turned j
down by a vote of eight to one. Mr. j
Thompson strenuously opposed the
granting of the license to the j
place, not that 'he had any fault to j
find with Mr. Conroy, the applicant, j
but because of the bad character of j
the locality at Third and Commercial |
| streets. Mr. Thompson demanded that
j no license be issued to the place.
Upon the roll call all the members
voted "no" save Messrs. Daly and
Lewis, and Mr. Lewis afterwards
changed his vote to "no." In explana
tion of his vote, Mr. Reardon said
that any man who secured the signa
tures of a lot of women to a petition
for a liquor license, was a hoodlum, and j
that he wouldn't vote to issue a license
to him. President Arosin called Mr. ]
Reardon to order and informed him I
that all he was allowed to do was to
explain his vote.
Subsequently the assembly adopted |
I a resolution offered by Mr. Daly, which ]
provides that on and after Jan. 1, 1897, I
no more than one saloon license shall '
be issued to the same person or cor- j
poration, and directs the license inspec- j
tor to require all saloon licenses to be !
posted conspicuously on the walls of I
the saloons.
Commissioner Copeland submitted the
semi-annual report of the public w<>rks
I department on the condition of the
street lamps, electric, gas and gasoline,
i now in use. According to the report,
| there are in use at the present time,
| 2,637 gas lamps, 3,190 gasoline lamps
! and 114 electric arc lights.
The report calls attention to the fact
that the gasoline plant needs overha.ul-
I ing and repairing, and that the lamp
posts require painting. The comrnis
stotteT recommends tha.t 250 additional
gasoline lamps be put !n. The gas j
| tampa and electric arc lights are re- i
: ported to be in excellent condition. The
; commissioner suggests that more elec
tric lights will be needed when the con
tract is awa»ded next spring for the
electric lighting. The report was re
ferred to the committee on gas.
The resolution vacating that portion
of the Dodd road in West St. Paul,
running through blocks 9S and 104, was
adopted on re-commenda.tlon of the com
[ mit tee on streets.
The resolution recommended by the
committee on streets, directing the
street railway company to tear up and
dircontinue the u&e of its tracks on
Thompson and Smith avenues, north of
Ramsey street, and to discontinue the
i:sr> of its tracks on Ramsey street for
aforing and repairing its cars, was
Thr> amended resolution from the
board of aldermen providing for the
joint committee consisting of three as
semblymen and four aldermen, to con
sider the proposition for a union dc-pot
belt line, was adopted and the com-
niittee already appointed is thereby
constituted a regularly appointed body.
Rev. Dr. Pope's Statement of Its
Rev. W. C. Pope, rector of the
Church of the Good Shepherd, present
ed the annual statement of the City
Mission Society of St. Paul at its meet
ing Monday. The object of the society,
as Is known to all Episcopalians, is to
unite the churchmen of St. Paul, Minn.,
in joint efforts for the extension or
support of the church within the cor
porate limits of the city, and its sub
urbs, by arranging for public services
of the church in places now without
the same, and by engaging in such
educational, eleesmosynary and be
nevolent work as it may choose to un
dertake. All clergymen canonically
connected with the diocese of Minne
sota and engaged in active church
work in the city of St. Paul, all com
municants of the church in said city,
and all other persons who shall con
tribute not less than one dollar an
nually to this society, shall be members
thereof. Following is the report:
Present Strength— Parishes. 8; missionaries,
organized, 5; unorganized, 2. In the suburbs,
parishes, 1; missions organized, 1; unor
ganized, 4; total, 5.
Growth— St. James chapel, belonging to St.
Paul's church, was the first mission. When
work was begun on Dayton's Bluff the mis
sion there was called St Peter's because when
Paul went up to Jerusalem he met James
and Peter. These two missions passed to
the City Mission society on its organization
in 1887.
The missions of Christ church. St. Stephen's
and St. Mary's also passed to the care of the
The Chapel of the Resurrection continued
under ihe care of the Church of the Good
St. Matthew's was built under the ministry
of Mr. Haupt while assistant in Christ church,
and as part of the city mission work.
The Rev. Samuel Mills was employed by
the society and placed In charge of St. James',
St, Mathew's, St. Peter's and St. Paul Park,
where he built Trinity church.
In 1887 the executive committee purchased
St. Mark's Reformed Episcopal church and
made it the home of the Mission of the Mes
siah, which was organized into a parish in
Emmanuel mission was opened by the so
ciety in 1893, and has since become the
Bishop's Church of St. Clement's.
The same year the German mission, after
being in operation for a year, was organ
ized and the Chapel of St. Bonefacius opened
for service. The missionary, the Rev. Jo
hannes Salinger, is a scholar, a devout and
self-denying man and unwearied in good
works. As general agent of the Church Char
ity association, he has done much to re
deem our communion from the stigma of
doing nothing more than building churches
and having service in them.
St. Bonefacius chapel has lately been re
moved to Rice street, near Sherburne avenue.
St. Philips mission was begun May 1, 1894.
Our Afro-American brethren long discussed
the question as to whether a separate or
ganization for themselves was desirable. St.
Philip's mission has settled the question and
has taken on increased vitality since the
advent of the present pastor, Mr. Bennett.
St. Siegfried's Swedish mission (self sup
porting) has been organized during the present
St. Peter's mission, Post Siding, is in a
needed locality.
In the Suburbs— Trinity chapel, after be
ing raised out of the dust by Mr. Holmes Is
now under the charge of Mr. Salinger. St.
Mark's church, Higwood, is under Mr.
Holmes. The unorganized missions are Egan
township, Mendota and North St. Paul.
As the review of church growth began with
St. John's churrh, so it will end. This church
is on the crest of the wave in all respects
except financially. During the time Mr.
Kaupt was in charge, the edifice was removed
from its poor location to its present good one.
A guild room was added. A heavy, but ne
cessary debt was thereby incurred, under
which it hai been staggering ever since. Un
til recently St. James has been connected
with some other mission. One of three
things is apparently necessary at present;
cither that the rector be given other work in
connection with his present, or that this so
ciety make itself liable for part of his sal
ary, or that St. Paul's parish should become
responsible for the care of its child.
Liabilities — One thousand dollars are re
quired this year to meet the obligations of the
society, Including salaries, interest on Trinity
church mortgage and incidentals.
Sources of Revenue — Membership fees, offer
tories In the churches on the Sunday before
Advent, receipts from Sunday schools during
Advent, individual special contributions made
under the influence of God, the Holy Ghost.
Government Distributing Annuities
to Those at White Earth.
W. F. Campbeli, a full-blooded Chip
pewa Indian, who has come to be a
well known practicing attorney, came
down yesterday to St. Paul from his
home at the White Karth reservation.
Mr. Campbell is on private business,
but brings news that the Chippewas
are in high feetle, owing to the fact
that the government representatives
are distributing the annuities to the
various tribes in this section. Already
$90,000 has been handed out to the
White Earth redskins, less one-quarter,
held back for the school fund. The
Indians made vigorous objection to
this reduction In their allowance, but
were finally persuaded that it was best
for them, and it went through. The
Indians at Leech Lake, Pine Point and
Red Lake are included in the distribu
tion, as well as the Mille Lacs bucks
who will be given the first payment in
seven years, amounting to something
like $40,000, or about $70 per capita.
For the first time since Lo voted in
Minnesota, he went Republican, and
gave a majority for McKinley, sound
money, Clough and Eddy.
There is much dissatisfaction, Mr.
Campbell says, among the Chippewas,
especially at the Red Lake reservation,
over the sale to settlers of considerable
valuable pine land which has been dis
posed of as agricultural land at $1.25
per acre. The land which has been so
sold has been appraised by the
government as agricultural land,
while the Indians claim that
in many instances quarter sec
tions contain vast quantities of rich
white pine. An effort is being made
to have the government cancel such
entries so that the Indians may re
ceive something like an adequate re
turn for their holdings.
There were filed with Secretary of
State Berg yesterday the final deeds in
the reorganization of the Northern
Pacific Railway company. The main
deed is from A. L. Cary. the special
master in chancery appointed by the
federal court, to the new company, he
filing a general deed. The old Northern
Pacific Railway company filed a deed
for the railroad and lands, and the
Farmers' Loan and Trust company
files a trustees' deed. The St. Paul &
Northern Pacific also files a deed of its

?850 Which the Law Allowed
Him to l»e,
A feature of the recent campaign
which is being awaited with interest
is the report of the various candidates
for office upon the expense to which
they were put to secure their election
or defeat as the case may have been.
The law is no respector of persons in
that the loser is not exempted from
reporting as well as the winner, al
though the fact that the winner may
be debarred from office until he has
filed adds a terror to it which the loser
naturally does not feel. Either is liable
to a fine of $1,000 or six months im
The law Is sweeping. While the cor
rupt practices law, as it is termed,
does not specifically involve the presi
dential electors, it does specify mem
bers of congress, and if its regulation
of their movements is sound, then
there seems no reason why it should
not extend to the electors. Congress
man Loren Fletcher, of Minneapolis
was the first in the Twin Cities to file

his report, and he kept well within the
limit, as the vote in his district .in 1894
enabled him to expend up to $850 or
more within the lines laid down by the
These expenses are confined within
close lines. Traveling expenses are al
lowed only for the candidate, public
speakers and musicians participating
at public meetings in his behalf. Rent
of halls and furniture for the same is
legitimate, as are the cost of distribu
ting pamphlets, sample tickets,
speeches, and the like, the pay of chal
lengers at the polling places, copying
and classifying of poll lists, canvasses
of voters, postage, telegraph and mes
senger service, clerk hire for commit
tees, and the expense of conveying in
firm or disabled voters to the polls.
It will be seen that there is nothing
allowed for drinks, cigars, and "in
cidentals," which go to make up so im
portant an item in the expense ac
count of the average candidate.
Whether the law is to result in the en
tire abolition of the ante-election
"treating habit" remains to be seen,
but certainly the. saloons of St. Paul
suffered little diminution of their trade
during the campaign. It is so hard
to prove that the. purchase of a drink,
or the setting up of a cigar, was a
bribe to have any one vote for one, par
ticularly if the charges should be tried
before a jury which was in the least
familiar with the aroma of the average
campaign cigar. It is probable that in
such a case the accused candidate if
he could not establish an alibi, could
at least set forth an apparent absence
of motive or inducement to the voter.
The alderman in a sister city, who
announced that he woula spend $10,000
if necessary, to be elected alderman
which pays $500 per year for four
years, has not yet filed any report
showing such fabulous expenditure. It
is probable that the candidate was
"talking through his skypiece," as it is
spoken in the street, although he may
have thought that the office was worth
the money he expresed a willingness
to pay for it. The law can no more
speculate on the possibilities of extra
emoluroents than it can control the
eatings and drinkings of candidates,
which will be conceded by the most
straight-laced court to be sumptuary
legislation if is ever attempted.
None of the state officers have yet
filed their statements. These are to be
filed with the secretary of state and
the auditor of the county in which the
candidate lives within thirty days after
the election. A statement that some
people are interested in is the state- i
nvent of Page Morris, the newly elected i
congressman in the Sixth district.
While his personal expenses are ex- i
pected to fall easily within the limit,
it is feared by some that the expenses
of the district committee which, under '<
the new law is also required to make
reports, will come dangerously close to, '■
if they do not exceed the prescribed '■
The law is rigid as to the amount !
that may be spent by a candidate. It j
permits him to expend for the first !
5,000 votes the sum of $250; for each '
100 voters in excess of 5,000 and under i
25,000, $2; for each 100 voter* in ex- ;
cess of 25.000 and under 50,000, $1; and I
fifty additional is allowed for each 100 ■
voters in excess of 50,000.
The number of voters for that office
at the last preceding election is the i
basis of computation.
One of the disturbing: features of the |
law and one that will cause every can- |
dldate who overstepped the bounds to i
worry until his term ends is that per- I
mitting any one to institute proceed- I
ings to nullify the election by proving j
unlawful acts. The action covering !
this ground states that any time dur- !
ing the term of office to which any j
candidate may have been elected any i
elector entitled to rote for said candi- ;
date may file an affidavit with the at- j
torney general requesting that a suit
be brought to declare the office vacant
upon any of the following grounds:
Expending, contributing, disbursing j
or promising an amount of -money in
exoess of the sum allowed by law, or
the commission of any unlawful act by
the officer, his agent or committee, or
with his or their connivance, by some
committee, organization or political
party, of which he is the nominee, or
the agent or agents of such party or
committee, with a view to securing his
One of the significant features of the
law pertaining to prosecutions is that
no one may be excused from answering
on the ground that hia testimony would
tend to degrade or incriminate him.
The briber or the bribe-taker cannot
escape, as of yore. On the other hand,
this testimony may not be used in any
action against the person so testifying.
In the event that an elector should
refuse to file this account, or should
afterward be found guilty of some vio
lation of the law, it will be interesting
to know that he could not vote for
president. The case would be identical
with that of Grand Master Workman
J. R. Sovereign, of the Knights of La
bor, who forgot to pay his poll tax in
Arkansas, and is, therefore, debarred
from receiving votes as a candidate
for elector.
While there is no classification made
of committees, yet it Is plain to be
seen that the state executive com
mittee*, which direct and govern all
others, come under the influence of
this law. By common consent they
are recognized as the personal com
mittees of those who are candidates
upon the state ticket.
Every club that took an active part
In the campaign is also expected to re
port. Section 16 says every two or
more persons who shall be elected, ap
pointed, chosen or associated for the
purpose of raising, collecting or dis
bursing money for election purposes
also comes under the law. Section 17
says every committee shall appoint and
constantly maintain a treasurer to re
ceive and disburse all funds and keep
a strict report of the same in proper
books. These are also under the law
ordered to file their reports within
thirty days and if Attorney General
Childs or any private citizen looks
after it, there will be a, number of in
teresting reports filed shortly or the
candidates prospects of procuring cer
tificates are placed In jeopardy.
H. L. Shute, traffic manager of the
Great Northern, informed a reporter
for the Globe yesterday afternoon,
that he had accepted the offer of a
commissionership ui>on the board of
administration of the Western associa
tion, and that he had wired- the execu
tives at St. Louis to that effect TMs
leaves the Great Northern minus an
able official. Mr. Shute will sever his
connection with that road Saturday
evening, and will proceed to Chicago
Sunday, in time to attend the initial
session of the board on the followinp
Mr. Shute was for eight years general
traffic manager of the Soo Line, where
he established a reputation. He re
signed to accept the position of general
j traffic manager of the Great Northern
iin May, 1895. and has made many
j friends in his present capacity. He
will not remove his family from Min
neapolis to Chicago until next summer.
The question of a successor to Mr.
Shute is as yet unsolved. It was hinted
yesterday that the duties hitherto at
| tended to by Mr. Shute will be trans
ferred to Second Vice President New
If the post of traffic manager is to be
I perpetuated, it is likely that General
Freight Agent Sommers will receive
the promotion, as it is in line with the
ideas of Second Vice President New
j man. that civil service procedure
should be instituted at all times where
it became necessary to fill vacancies.
Will Not Be Dropped "Without a
Oscar Skoog, who, until recently,
patrolled a beat in the First ward,
until Mayor Doran removed him for al
leged neglect of duty, appeared before
the board of aldermen committee on
police yesterday afternoon, and inform
ed that body that a "heap of lies" had
been told about him to get him off the
police force. The action of the mayor
in removing Skoog, is under consider
ation by the committee to which it was
| referred on motion of Aid. Lindahl. as
j all removals from the force must be
concurred in by both bodies of the com
mon council, where the assembly alone
j confirms the mayor's appointments.
Mr. Skoog' a cause was championed,.
j not only by himself, but by County At
torney-elect S. A. Anderson, of the
[ First ward, who assured the committee
that the business men of that portion
of the city gave Skoog "a great send-
I off" as a vigilant, sober and competent
i policeman. On his own behalf, Mr.
j Skoog said:
"Gentlemen, a Uttlt truth and a heap
lof lies have been told about me. The
; charges brought against me by Sergt.
i Ryan were untrue, and I can produce
I ten or eleven witnesses to prove that
j they are. One of the charges was that I
! was found while supposed to be on
j duty, in a barber shop, with my coat
| off, sitting down and reading the Police
| Gazette, with my feet cocked in the air.
i Now I can prove that is not true, and
that the sergeant lied when he said
: that I was caught asleep on my beat
; two or three times. I was never caught
| asleep on my beat."
Mr. Anderson added that it was diffi
i cult to ascertain the exact nature of
i the charges against Skoog.
It was the judgment of the committee
i that the hearing of any testimony ought
' to be postponed until the chief of police
and Sergt. Ryam could be present, and
| the matter was accordingly laid over
till 4:30 p. m. today.
The committee made short work of
the mayor's dog-catcher resolution, au
thorizing his honor to appoint four dog
; catchers and three assistants for an ad
ditional period not to exceed two
months. It was decided by a vote of
three to one. Aid. Bell voting in the
| negative, to submit an adverse report
I on the resolution.
The committee also recommended an
| adverse report on the resolution to ac
cept the bid of the Northwestern Fuel
company offering to supply the police
I department with 156 tons of coal at
| $S.3f per ton.
