TO REJEGT ALL BIDS ALDERMEN APPROVE THK REC OMMENDATION Or THR COM MITTEE OX GAS. J. J. PARKER'S OFFER DID IT. THE COMPANY HE REPRESENTS AGREES TO DO THE GASOLINE LIGHTING LOWER THAN ANY OTHER BIDDER CompetittOß Will Result in a Sav ing to the City— Carbon Com. --■'iiy May Not Hid .\*4«i«. It looks now as though the city wculd save about $10,000 in the cost of its gasoline lighting for IS9B, as compared with the current year. The board of aldermen at its meeting last night approved the recommendation of the joint committee on gas, reject ed the three bids for gasoline light ing and directed the city clerk to re advertise for proposals. The city is now paying 98M- cents per lamp per month, and when the bids recently ad vertised for were opened the Carbon Light & Power Co., was found to be the lowest bidder agreeing to do the lighting for 77 cents per lamp per month. There was some talk about allowing an outside company to come in and carry off the contract, especial ly as ther.fi was only $1,000 difference between the bid of the home concern and the lowest bidder. As a result of the delay In the award of the con tract, ex-Assemblyman J. J. Parker came before the joint committee on gas, to whom the bids had been re ferred and proposed that if the city should see fit to readvertise he would guarantee that the concern be repre sented would put in a bid even lower than had been submitted. Each of the members of the board of aldermen and assembly, with one or two ex ceptions, forthwith became, or at least said so, deeoly interested in getting the lighting done for the lowest pos sible figure, and the plan to readver tise was agreed upon. The assembly will, It is claimed, concur in the action of the board of aldermen at its meet ing this evening. All the members of the board were present at the session last night and Vice President Allard occupied the chair. The report of the joint committee on gas was to the effect that all bids be rejected, providing J. J. Parker would submit a bond in the sum of $8,000 that the concern he represented would, in case of a readvertisement, put in a bid at figures lower than the lowest had now submitted. Mr. Shepard moved the report of the committee be accepted and adopted, and Mr. Stutzman seconded the mo tion. Mr. Kaldunskl was not in favor of fixing things so as to give a favored contractor another chance. Mr. Stutz man thought the bids secured were unreasonable. He had investigated and satisfied himself that the work could be done much cheaper than at the present bids, and for this reason was in favor of read vertisi **»•]*. Mr. Shepard wanted to hear the sure ties on the bond submitted by Mr. Parker read. The clerk stated that the bond had been approved by the cor poration attorney, but had not yet been signed by that official. The sureties l on the bond were J. B. Tarbox, E. B. Smith and J. J. Parker. Mr. Parker said he did not go be fore the .committee on gas and ask that bids be readvertised for. The firm he represented was prepared to put in a bid and at a lower figure than the lowest bid received. He had been in- I formed that if he put up a bond for $S.OOO to guarantee his proposition, he would get a chance to bid He had submitted the bond and the sureties were good. The name of the concern he represented was of little moment at this time. He was certain that if the council should readvertise, the city could save money. Corporation Attorney Markham said the counsel had the right to reject all bids and readvertise, but, in his opin ion, the council had no authority lo accept such a bond. There was no provision under the charter by which the council could accept the bond, and he had suggested that Mr. Parker withdraw the bond and put in its place a certified check for a reasonable amount. Mr. Parker, on the suggestion of Mr. Markham, withdrew the bond and handed the city clerk a certified check on the Merchants' National bank for | $2,500. This, he said, would be further i testimony that he was willing to make : good his proposition. The roll call on the adoption of the report of the com mittee showed all of the nine mem bers present in favor of the plan. On motion of Mr. Sanborn, ihe bond furnished by Mr. Parker was rejected and the certified check for $2,500, pay able to the city treasurer, accepted. With the check was the following com i munication: The accompanying cashier's check is here with deposited with the city clerk as security for the faithful performance of the condi tions contained in a bond executed by me as principal, and J. B. Tarbox and E. B. Smith as -sureties to the city of St. Paul. Iv case said conditions are not fully complied with, said check is to be delivered to the city treas urer and the same shall be the property of the city of St. Paul, but if said conditions be complied with, tho check Is to be re iui!;ed to me. —J. j. Parker. A resolution directing the city clerk to readvertise for bids was passed by THE SAINT PAUL GLOBE: FRIDAY. NOVEMBER 12, 1897. a unanimous vote, and the board ad journed. D. J. Prendergast, representing the Carbon Light and Power company, was an interested spectator at the meeting. Seen after the board ad journed, Mr. Prendergast said he was not prepared to say whether his firm would submit another bid. He was of the opinion that the firm had not been given fair play in the matter. The company had put in a proposal for doing the lighting, which \vas about $7,000 less than the amount now paid for the same service. Instead of be ing awarded tire contract, the council had rejected all bids and readvertisfid. He suggested that perhaps as good a way as any for him to do would be to wait until after the new bid called for was opened, and then go before the council and agree, if a third ad vertisement was published, that he would under-bid the lowcf.-st figure. One thing Mr. Prendergast said his company was doing, and that was sav ing the taxpayers of St. Paul several thousand dollars, which he thought should be appreciated. Charles A. Pettingill, representing the American Development company, which now has the contract, stated that the company would submit anoth er bid. DAY OF THE DEBITANTE. Mrs. H. R. Brill Introduces Her Dunghter to Society. Mrs. Hascal R. Brill, of 471 Laurel avenue, gave a reception yesterday afternoon for the introduction of Mis 3 Brill.

MINNESOTA SAVINGS BANK PRECIPITATES A FIZZLING PROB LEM OX THE COUNCIL AND OTHER OFFICIALS. BONDSMEN WOULD BE CLE AB. They Claim the Fact That tlie De posfi Exceeded Charter Lim itation* Relieve* Them. The proposition of the sureties on the bond given to the city by the Minne sota Savings bank was considered by the ways and means committee of the assembly yesterday. The bond is in the sum of $20,000, with H. L. Schade, George J. Mitsch, L,. I. Casserly, Charles E. Chapel, Fred C. Stevens and Thomas F. Conroy as sureties. The proposition made by the sureties is to pay the city $2,633 in full of all claims. The contention of the bonds men is that the city treasurer had no authority under the charter to deposit a larger sum than the assessed capital stock of the bank, which was $2,500. This amount and interest the sureties are willing to pay providing they be released on the bond. E. E. McDonald informed the com mittee that the $10,000 claimed to have been deposited in the Minnesota Sav ings bank, was, as a matter of fact, deposited in the Allemannia bank. As to whether it had ever passed through the Minnesota Savings bank he was not prepared to say. It was a ques tion if the Minnesota Savings bank had a right to issue any stock, but as it had issued stock the sureties on the bond would hold themselves liable for a sum equal to the maximum amount that under the charter could be de posited. The acceptance of the propo sition would not, Mr. McDonald claimed, violate the claim of the city against the bank and stockholders for the balance. Nearly all the sureties on the bond were insolvent and were not respon sible even if judgments were taken against them. Mr. Markham did not want to make any recommendation in the matter. He thought it was a very serious ques tion if the city could collect, even if a judgme nt was secured against them. As far as he could learn, not more than two or three of the bondsmen were in a position where a judgment would be of any practical good. He advised that, if the matter was set tled on the proposition made by the bondsmen and the $2,633 accepted by the city in full of all claims, it would relieve the city treasurer from all re sponsibility in connection with the al leged illegal deposit of the $7,500. He held that the bond was a good one, so far as the sureties were concerned, even admitting that the city treasurer had placed more money in the bank than the charter provided. The bonds men for the city treasurer would be liable, if the treasurer had exceeded his authority, but there was a question about this. The city council had des ignated the Minnesota Savings bank as one of the depositories for city funds. It was possible that the city treasurer, under the resolution of the council, would claim that he had not exceeded his authority in putting the amount in the bank. The principal question to be settled was, would City Treasurer Horst and his bondsmen consent to the proposed settlement without relieving him or his bondsmen from any liability in the matter. Mr. McDonald said he would consult with Mr. Horst and his bondsmen, and the committee laid the matter over, pending the result of the conference between Mr. McDonald and the city treasurer. HAS A XEW CORPORAL. Company D's Weekly Drill More Eventful Than I sua!. The regular weekly drill of Company D, First infantry, N. G. S. M.. held at the Sixth street armory last evening, was of more than ordinary interest, and largely attended. The company having been divided into squads and drilled in certain movements r.*ncer direction of the non-commissioned ( f flcers for some little time, the com pany was again assembled and drilled in the school of the company. Before the company was dismissed, Capt. Bean announced the appointment of Harry V. Knocke as corporal, to fill a vacancy In the non-commissioned staff of the company, the appointment being concurred in by the entire com pany, in a most hearty manner. Cor poral Knocke enlisted in Company D Jan. 5, 1593, and has participated in all of the drills and excursions taken by the company since his enlistment. Company D will attend the benefit to be tendered Miss Florence Marie n Pace next Tuesday evening at th* 'J-*ntrai Presbyterian church, Miss Pace having participated in the benefit tendered Company D last June, previous t.*> the departure of the company for the South. Company D will visit Chicago next February, an invitation having been extended by Company M, First infantry, Illinois national guard, or "Switzer's Indians," as the company is known, to visit Chicago as their guests. Coir pany M is the Company D of the Illinois national guard, and it is needless to say that Capt. Bean and his men will be entertained most roy ally while in the city by Lake Michi gan. The Company D quartette sang a number of their original songs in a particularly happy manner last even ing. Messrs. Allen, Bookstaver, Bach and Hinninger compose the quartette, and that their music was appreciated was evidenced by the hearty applause which foliewed each selection. Col. W. W. Price, Capt. W. H. Hart and Capt. Frank B. McCoy, the latter of the regular army, detailed as inspector of the Minnesota national guard, wit nessed the drill last evening. MAY RE-ELECT THEM. Solution of the Kirke-Larson Cit izenship nillioultlcH. She securing of second patters by Assembly man Kirke and Aid. Larson within tbe last few days has raised the^ question as to whether these gentlemen cjm legally occupy their positions in the 'council. It is claimed that under" the new law a person is not eligi ble to vote unless he nas secured his second papers at least ninety' days before an elec tion. This provision, it is argued, would ap ply to both Laraon and Kirke, as at the present time they are not voters, although both are members of the council, and are al lowed to vote on matters bf public Impor tance. The decision of the supreme court is the Banholzer assembly case is quoted to explain another point jnade. The court he-Id that any 'voter was eligible to hold an effiue for -which he could vote, irrespective of his residence. If, it is claimed, neither Larson nor Kirke are eligible.to vote, they are not eligible to hold their positions in the council, and will not be until I the ninety days have elapsed from the time of the taking out of their second rapers. An attorney, ih speak ing of the matter last night, suggested that a good way to settle the matter would be to have the assembly, as soon as the ninety days had elapsed, in tha case of Kirke, hold a meeting and elect him to the position. The same plan, he --aid. could be followed by the bosid of aldermen, in the case of Larson. It is claimed by one ."<lde that the constitu tion supersedes all existing legal conditions. If es amended it dees away with offices, or I i-quir-s qualifications of those holding cf- Ifice not required at tho time of their election, it must bo given full force and effect.

There were no new developments in the Dupre-Capistrant poisoning case yesterday, as those making the analysis of the suspected sausage and the stomachs of the dead men, have not progressed far enough to render their reports. The bacteriological department at the state university is engaged in a portion of the investigation and it may be a week before its results will be known. Dr. Perk ins, of the health department, is continuing his inquiries. The bodies of the dead young men have been taken to Centervillo for bur ial. Coroner Nelson Is sr* ill pursuing his in vestigations and will endeavor to ascertain if sickness followed the eating of sausage by anyone else. FIVE DEER AND A BEAR. Oilieer Call Went After Big* Game and Got It. Andrew Call— "Big Andy," the stal wart police officer on duty at the union station — returned yesterday from a hunting trip of ten days, at the northern part of Lower Tamarac. While there he stopped at Keene's and Nelson's logging camps. During this short period he, alone and unaided, killed five deer and one black bear; he could have slaughtered much more, he says, but it seemed wicked to do so. The bear gave him a hard fight, after being wounded, attacking him savagely, and had Andy not been ex ceedingly active and muscular there might have been a vacancy on the St. Paul police force. MONUMENT AT LAKEWOOD. State Officials Will Not Oppose Hen nepin Soldiers. A delegation of Minneapolis Grand Army men. headed by Capt. H. H. Kelly and ex-Aid. Herman Vogt, wait ed on Gov. Clough and State Auditor Dunn yesterday to see what could be done to make available at once the $5,000 set apart by the legislature of 1893 for a soldiers' monument on the burial lot at Lakewood. The legisla ture set the $5,000 apart conditionally, the old soldiers of Hennepin county agreeing to add $15,000 to it, and so provide for a monument to cost $20,000. Almost five years have gone by, and the $15,000 is still uncollected. The old soldiers have about made up their minds that the best they can do at present is to duplicate the state's ap propriation, making a fund of $10,000 in all. And in addition they are begin ning to think that to expend $20,000 for a monument would be unwarranted ex travagance in these times. Ten thou sand dollars will provide one that will fully answer the purpose. The governor, who was seen first, said that the state auditor was the man who had charge of the $5,000. If the auditor would issue his warrant for the amount, that would settle the matter. Auditor Dunn said that if the old sol ditrs of Hennepin county were willing to add $5,000 to the $5,000 set apart by the legislature, and thought these sums would give them such a monument as they wanted, he would interpose no technical objections, but would issue the warrant whenever requested to do so. Gov. Clough thinks that $10,000 will build a very fine monument. "The state of Minnesota," he said yesterday, "has expended $19,000 for two monuments on the field of Gettysburg commemorative of the gallantry of the old First regi ment. They are a credit to the state in every way, and the larger one com pares very favorably with the other monuments on the battlefield, some 400 in number. IN PRINTING CRAFTS. Machinery Said to Have Increased Chances for Employment. Labor Commissioner Powers, at the rt quest of some of the state organiza tions, has been investigating the ques tion as to whether machinery is de creasing the opportunities for employ ment by men and women in the allied printing trades. He has taken up the statistics from 1850 to 1895, inclusive. The statistics include typesetters, pressmen, bookbinders, electroplaters, papermakers, lithographers, publish ers and writers, and he finds that in 1850 there were 25.426 males over fifteen years of age, out of a population of 28 191,876. employed in these occupa tions.' This meant one for every 912.10 persons in the country. In 1870 the poulation was 38,558.371, and the number of printers was 63,599, one for every 607.8 people in the coun try; the population had increased in th» 'twenty years 66.3 per cent and the number of employes in this line had ircreased 150.1 per cent. In 1890 the population was 62,622,250, an increase of 62.4 per cent over 1870. The number of printers was 175,277, an increase of 175.6 per cent over 1870. In 1890 there was one person for every 35i*.3 neople employed in the allied trades; as a result a man stood 1.7 greater chance of securing employ ment in this line in 1890 than in IS7O, and 2.55 better chance than in 1850. From 1850 to 1890 the population of the country had Increased 170 per cent, and the number of people in this call ing had been increased 589.4. DEMOCRATIC MEETINGS. One in the Fourth Ward aud One in the Fifth. A meeting of the Filth Ward Democrats was held at West Seventh and Randolph streets last night for the purpose of taking steps to secure the naturalization of the voters in that ward. Owing to the short no tice of the meeting, tho fourteen precincts of the ward were not sufficiently represented to select the precinct committees that are to attend to the work. Some appointments were made, aud the Hat will be completed at a meeting to be held about the middle of next week at a more central location in the ward. J. C. Michael and John Ivc3 addressed tho meeting. » ♦ * The Fourth Ward Democratic club met last night at Swiss Casino hall, President Covington In the chair. Precinct committee men reported the list of names for naturaliza tion from the various precincts ot the ward, and a committee consisting of J. E. O'Brien, O. B. Robertson and J. B. Pewters was ap pointed to ascertain what evenings the judges of tho district court could give for that pur pose. Meetings of the club will probably be held hereafter in the Pfeiffer block hallo, at Eighth and Wabasha streets. VAl.l VKI.E ADDITION To Be Built at the South St. Paul Yards. The lease giving William McCormick the Beigman building and ground for an abbatoir at South St. Paul, was signed yesterday. Mr. McCormick will spend about $7,000 in building a modern and convenient house for the slaughte-r of cattle, hogs and sheep, and besides his own business, will slaughter for other city wholesalers. The bull rooms will have a holding capacity of about 300 cattle, besides what hogs and sheep will be needed in the course of business. Most of the custom slaughtering is done at Swift's and Staples & King's, but those concerns frequently are crowded with their own business. The iraprovemvnt is a valuable addition to the already growing business at 2*511111 St. Paul. ARMY NEWS. The change of station of the First In fantry with the Seventh shows that tho regi ment stationed at one post the longest is n»t always considered, which i.s accounted for on the ground that no change is wanted by the regiment. The Fourteenth Infantry Ims been stationed at Van Couver. Wash., since 18S4. and there is no liklfhuod that it will be moved for some time to come.
