In secret session yesterday the board

was not revealed further than that the
election occurred on the first formal
ballot elected Adoniram J. Smith, for
eeveral years principal of the Central
big* school, to succeed Prof. Virgil G.
Curtis as superintendent of the city
All the proceedings of the board were
Btriotly executive and the members in
structed the secretary to inform the
press of the result of the election as
Stated above, the duty of informing
Mr. Curtis being accepted by a mem
ber of the board.
The most important business to come
before the board, aside from the elec
tlon was the following communication,
which was referred to the committee on
Resolved. That we, the general federation
of grade teachers of the St. Paul public
schools in conference assembled, through
the committee by whom we are represented,
a<k that the old sehtdule of salaries be re
sumed. And we hereby give our reasons:
First— lt is just to the beginner who com
at 535 and $*0 a month, for, if suc
cessful, she is raised according to schedule
until the maximum is re.iehed.
Becond— lt is fair to the cxi erlenced teach
er as her retention and increased remunera
-1M! y t :ir by year Is the expression of the
satisfactory quality of her work.
Third— A cause of much of the feeling of
dissatisfaction has been due to indiscrim
inate advances in salary, on account of not
using the fixed schedu'.e, with reference to
time of service, and this could be avoided by
adhering to the fixed rate.
Fourth— Every teacher's work Is harder
than befc.re the cuts were made owing to
the increased number of pupils per teacher,
whkh means virtually a saving to the board
by lessening the number of employes, and by
this lessening lncrtasing two-told the labor
of the teacher.
Resolved, We would respectfully ask that
the subject of equalization, of salaries of
gradt teachers be not considered.
And we hereby give cur reasons:
First — P.ecause it places the teacher of long
and short standing on the same basis, and
in all occupations, trades and professions an
expert is worth vastly more than a beginner.
Second — Because It lowers the standing of
the profession and gives the unprogressive
teacher the same advantages that it does the
const iir.tiuus, painstaking worker.
Third— lt is considered by administrators of
schools that the work required of kindergar
t( n din dresses, first primary, seventh and
eighth grade teachers requires more prepara
tion, greater skill, and Involves more work
than other grades. Fcr this reason remuner
ation should be greater.
Fourth— An Injustice is done to those who
have spf-iit and are spending their money,
time and energy to make themselves exports
In their line. Furthermore, it takes away
the incentive for advancement, and this state
Is r.ot natural to any human being, much

Lastly— We ask your honorable body to
adjust expenses in some other part of the
srhco! system by a sufficient amount to give
the schedule advance to the poorest paid of
your employes who have under their charge

We ask. if such Is your pleasure, that the

to put these resolutions on file.

The recount of the ballots in the
Gleason-Reeves aldermanic contest in
the Fifth ward was commenced yes
terday morning in the council chamber.
At 5 o'clock when the referees adjourn
ed the recount until this morning, elev
en of the fourteen precincts had been
gone over.
The precincts yet to be recounted are
the Fourth, Eleventh and Fourteenth,
and unless the changes in these pre
cincts are more marked than in the
eleven counted yesterday, there is not
any chance for Gleason to change the
result of the council canvass.
Gleason claimed that the recount of
the Eighth precinct would change the
figures and show a decided gain for him
over the returns made by the judges.
The vote as returned by the judge;?
gave Reeves 106 and Gleason 121. The
recount made by the referees gives
Reeves 105 and Gleason 123. There is
a dispute about eleven of the ballots
in this precinct, as five which were
cast for Reeves and six cast for Glea
son were signed by only one of the
judges. Attorney Johns and Attorney
Peebles, representing Reeves and Glea
son, are both of the opinion that the
failure of one of the judges to sign the
ballots will not prevent the votes be

cast the ballot for.
The referees, however, will ask the
court to pass on the question rather
than the attorneys representing the

Gleason expected to make gains, the re

Bears the The Kind You Have Always Bought
Main Thoroughfare of the City De
arrted Ilrcnnxe of the Opposition
of \oii-llt>Nitifii< I'roiperty Ohihtm
—'The Street fur C'oniiinny Alho
Said to Be Hootlle PetltlonH in
Circulation Should Dc Signed
Property owners, business men and
residents who are interested in the
velfare of the city and the improve
ments of the principal streets and
thoroughfares are up in arms over the
proposed action of the council relative
to the paving of East Seventh street
from the railroad bridge to Hope street.
For the past year and a half East*
Seventh street between the points men
tioned has been in an impassable con
dition. The street is one of the main
arteries leading to and from the city,
and, by reason of the condition of the
pavement, all travel has been diverted
from the street.
This has done great injury not only
to the business men in the immediate
locality, but to all the merchants along
the street from Wabasha street to the
city limits. Trade and travel which
would naturally use the street has been
driven to other thoroughfares, and the
result has been not only a detriment
to those owning improved property on
the street, but also to the merchants
in business in the retail district be
tween Broadway and Wabasha streets.
For the past two years efforts have
made to secure the paving of the street
from the railroad bridge to the top of
the hill at Hope street. Try as best
they could, those interested in having
the thoroughfare put in passable con
dition found their efforts blocked.
When Seventh street was paved
three years ago from Seven Corners
to Bradley street, one of the argu
ments made for the improvement was
that it would help business on the
street, and, being the natural route
to and from the eastern part of the
city and the territory adjacent, it
would be of great benefit to the mer
chants. This was at once recognized
as convincing and desirable, and the
owners of property on lower Seventh
street made no objection to the street
being paved. The understanding was
that a portion of the street east of the
railroad bridge would be paved the
following year, but the influence of
half a dozen owners of unimproved
property have, up to date, prevented
the improvement being made.
Preliminary o-'ders have passed the
council direct. «^ the board of public
works to prepare and report final or
ders for the paving of that portion of
the street between the railroad bridge
and Hope street, but each time the re
port of the board has been adverse to
the paving. Each time the matter had
been up before the board of public
works the same half a dozen parties
owning large tracts of unimproved
property have objected to the improve
ment, and as these persons represent
four-fifths of the property frontage
along which the pavement is needed
the board of public works has decided
to postpone the work.
The same arguments are used each
year by the unimproved property own
ers. Times are too hard, there is no
demand or sale for the property and
the street with some repairs could be
made to last another year. The resi
dents of Dayton's bluff, the owners of
improved property and the merchants
on Seventh street have protested
against the delay which not only dis
figures one of the principal streets of
the city, but depreciates property and
ruins business along the street, but
all to no purpose.
Recently the representatives in the
council from the eastern part of the
city passed another preliminary order
for the paving of that portion of the
street mentioned. The board of public
works aguin went through the form of
listening to the arguments of the un
improved property owners and returned
an adverse report. The report stated
that the proposed improvement was
necessary and proper and property
could be found benefited to pay for the
same, but that as a majority of the
property owners protested it would not
be advisable this year to do the work.
This report was returned to the as
sembly at its last meeting and referred
to the committee on streets of that
body. At a meeting held Tuesday af
ternoon the committee decided to rec
ommend that the adverse report of the
board of public works be passed pro
viding the street was paved in 1899.
Those of the property owners who were
present at the committee meeting, while
not agreeing to stand by this arrange
ment made no objection to the action,
but as can be readily understood they
did not bind themselves not to make
the same objection next year as has
been made with such effect for the past
two years.
The owner of considerable improved
property, fronting on the gully which
now exists near Bradley street, said last
evening that In hi 3 opinion the street
railway company was largely respon
sible for the delay in paving the street.
"It is an outrage on the city and the
citizens," said the gentleman, "that the
street is in the condition it is. A year
ago the city engineer advised that the
street be closed to travel from the east
end of the bridge to Hope street, ow
ing to its being in such a condition
that it was dangerous to allow teams
to travel on it.
"Assemblyman Arosin, who was then
in the council, secured the passage of
an order for the paving of the street,
and it looked at one time as though
the improvement would be made. A
compromise was, however, made, and
the parties owning unimproved prop
erty agreed, if the paving was post
poned for a year, to make no objections
this year.
"The result was just as I expected,
and now it looks as if there would bo
no paving done until next year. When
I say it is my opinion that the street
railway company is interested in pre
venting the paving of the street, I
simply state what a large number of
property owners and business men, as
well as myself, believe. Of course, the
company does not appear or show its
hand when the protests are made to
the board of public works, but it gets
in its work all the same.
"The matter comes up in the assem
bly this evening, I understand, and a
large delegation will*be on hand to urge
that branch of the council to take such
action as will result in the paving of
the street from the bridge to the top
of the hill this year."
Yesterday afternoon petitions were
circulated among the business men
and property owners for signatures,
and these will be presented to the as
sembly at its meeting tonight. People
who are Interested in seeing this im
provement should look around for one
of these petitions today.lf it Is not pre
sented to them.
The petitions, which were being rap
idly signed and to which hundreds of
names will be added today, read as fol
lows: »
To the Honorable Common Council of 8t
The undersigned citizens, taxpayers anfl
merchantß of St. Paul, do hereby most urgent
ly petition your honorable body to' take
prompt and proper action toward the Im
mediate pavement of East Seventh street,
during the present season. This street is one
of the few direct thoroughfares connecting
the heart of the town with the entire easterly
section of the city and by reason of the
absolutely impassable condition of said street
a great deal of the farmer traffic from thai
direction is diverted Into other channels to
the great loss of the business community, and
one of the most deslTable residence portions
of the city has for a number of years pasl
been deprived of sufficient access to the city.
One of the members of the council,
seen last evening, said that, if the as
sembly approved of the adverse report
of the board of public works, as rec
ommended by the assembly committee
on streets, it would be necessary tc
prepare a new preliminary order, and
by the time this new order had gone
through the red tape proceedings neces
sary it would be too late to do any
thing in the way of paving this year.
Sncce»Nfnl EveM In Colored Social
The concert and cake walk given at Central
hall last night was one of the most success
ful events that has been given In colored so
cial circles during the past season. About 200
people attended, and, while but six of these
participated in tho cake walk, that feature
was none the less enjoyable. Those that
entered the wulk were Bradley S. Walker and
Mrs. H. H. Humphrey, Claude Jackson and
illss Emma Porter, W. J. Johnson and Miss
iinrle Armstrong. The three couples were
kept on the floor nearly thirty minutes, while
the Judges deliberated. All the couples wore
decidedly popular, and the task of the Judges
was not an easy one, but the cake was finally
awarded to Claude Jackson and Miss Porter.
Preceding the cake walk a musical pro
gramme was given which Included numbers
>y T. D. Morgan, C. D. Jackson, Miss Emma
Porter. W. A. Hilyard. Allen French and B.
S. Walker. All the numbers were well given
and received with hearty applause. The pro
gramme also included a short address by
Frederick L. McGhee. In which he referred to
the greatness of Lincoln and the priceless gift
that he had made to the colored citizens when
he gave them the rights of American citizens.
In closing Mr. McGhee said: "We owe it to
this country to make much of our liberty,
to cease complaining of obstacles and set
about the task of removing any such that
there may be by out own efforts. Ours is a
glorious history. Let it be not tarnished."
At the close of the take walk light refresh
ments were served and a half an hour was de
voted to social conversation.

The trip on the river was most pleas
ant. Here and there some point of in
terest called up reminiscences of the
eventful past.
The iittle company of pioneers gath
ered on the main deck of the Hen
rietta as she steamed up the river was
a representative gathering of those
hardy pioneers who made St. Paul the
capital city among the hills of the
great commonwealth of the Northwest.
Many of the old settlers have since
taken up their residence in other parts
of the state.
Every man on board averred that
the scenery was just as magnificent
as it was when the red man lurked
in every ravine.
B. F. Irvine said that he was aboard
the first boat that ever went up the
Minnesota river. The Indians were so
frightened at the white man's "Hell
Beat" that they dropped their pap
pooses and fled.
S. P. Folsom carried his famous cane
made from the wood of the old St.
Paul house, which occupied the present
site of the Merchants' hotel.
"We young men of eighty," said Gov.
Remsey, "are surprisingly good look
ing, and have tremendous appetites."
S. P. Folsom said he could remember
when Gov. Ramsey was in office' a
certain bridge proposition was before
congress. The St. Paul people were
anxious to secure its passage. ' Gov.
Ramsey went to Washington, and there
was more influence in Mr. Ramsey's
pantaloons stuffed with straw than the
whole Minnesota delegation.
A. L. Larpenteur looked the youngest
man in the lot, although he enjoys the
distinction of being the first white
child born in St. Paul.
William Pitt Murray proved the prize
story teller of the crowd. He related
some very funny incidents about A. L.
Moss and several others of the old
Gov. Ramsey rested on his laurels,
as he also enjoyed a distinction, that
of being the only war governor now
Rev. M. N. Adams, who was actively
engaged in missionary work at Lac
Qui Parle and other Indian missions,
told of the peculiarities of the Indians,
especially the Chippewas.
Capt. E. W. Durant was character
ized by one of the party as a walking
encyclopedia. The captain was kept
busy entertaining the few ladies on
board, which he did in a royal man
Fountain cave was passed on the
way up the river, and it called back
to memory vividly to seme of the
younger of the men the days when
•they used to go swimming in the creek
which issues from its bosom.
As the boat passed the St. Paul
Boom company's boom, somebody on
board suggested that the boom of
twenty years ago had gone up the river
and forgot to come back.
When Fort Snelling was reached,
many of the old settlers walked up
the old government trail which leads
up the summit of the hill.
Capt. Durant started his armored
cruiser Henrietta on her return trip
at 4:45, and she successfully ran the
blockade of many fishing craft on the
return trip.
Just before landing, the party gath
ered In the saloon of the boat and
passed resolutions of thanks to Capt.
Durant for the delightful cruise up the
Haiver Oace, the young man accused of ap
propriating $2 in change at Becker's drug
store, Seventh and Waoouta streets, was dis
