The railroad and warehouse commission
acted upon the recommendation of State
Grain Inspector Reishus yesterday afur
noon. The result was somewhat of a
surprise and was not anticipated. It was
decided to retain In service Deputy In

one of the members of the commission,
The deciding vote lay with Commission

CITY HALL GOSSIP.
The fact that a commission will b? ap
pointed by the judges of the district court
to draft a new charier has caused con
siderable activity In the various depart
ments of the city government. Each of
the heads of the several departments has
an idea that the present charter could be
improved upon so far as his particular
• department is concerned and when the
commission gets down to work It will
have its hands full considering sugges
tions to the changes by nearly all of the
Mayor Kiefer, while he may not appear
before the commission in person, will
have his views presented as to the
changes which he thinks are necessary
in the chapter devoted to the police de
partment The mayor takes the position
that the chief executive of the city should
have absolute control of the police de
partment and should be given authority
to (discharge any member from the chief
to poundmaster without the concurrence
of the council as the charter now pro
The present charter makes the mayor
the head of the police department, but all
his appointments as well as the removals
are subject to the concurrence of the
council. This provision. Mayor Kiefer
says, makes him, or whoever is mayor, re
sponsible for the police department, while
as a matter of fact the power is really
in the hands of the council.
* • •
"I do not say," remarked Mayor Kiefer,
In the course of a conversation the other
day, "that the present council has not
concurred in any recommendation that I
have made regarding the appointments
to and removals from the force. But I
do claim that the theory is wrong that
gives the council anything to say about
appointments or removals. The mayor
should have absolute control of the force
and if this was the law there would be a
chance to have a force which would not
be selected or retained in the department
by reason of political pull. The mayor
should be at the head of the department,
with power to run it as he pleased; o<
course, with proper I'estrictions to the
amount of money to be expended, and
since he is held responsible for the effi
ciency of the department he should not
be handicapped as to who shou'.d con
stitute the members."
• • *
Comptroller McCardy has expressed
himself as favoring the present charter
rather than a new one. His idea is that
the limitations on the expenditures in
many of the departments is a good thing
for the city, and in the past eight years
has saved the taxpayers a large amount
of money. His plan is to re-enact tha
Bell charter, with a very few modifica
tions, and insert a provisions which will
allow the school board an amount of
money sufficient to run the schools on
an economical basis. In order to be fully
prepared as to the be^t thing in the
charter line the comptroller has sent to
San Francisco for a copy of the new
charter recently adopted by that city and
declared legal aii' proper by the su
preme court of th. 3 -ate.
• ~ *
Health Commissioner Ohage, although
admitting that the members of the coun
cil are not enthused over his scheme of
having , the garbage problem solved by
his deparrment for $25,000 per year, has
hopes of having his plan adopted. A
number of the members of the assembly,
who just now have the plan of the com
missioner under discuss on, favor the pres
ent contract system^and the broadening
of the specifications so that the garbage
contractors will be obliged to carry away
the tin cans and other refuse as well as
garbage. With an idea that perhaps tpere
would be room for several appointments,
the councilmen also favor an increase in
the force of garbage inspectors, and con
tend that this would be cheaper than hav
ing the health department do the work.
Ejection is approaching and the naming
of an inspector from each of the eleven
wards would, in the opinion of the me:n.
bers of the council, do more good frotn a
political point of view than the removal
of the garbage In a sanitary manner pc«

The- board of public works Is just now
engaged in figuring out the amouat of
money it will be necessary to assess the
owners for the purchase of the land to be
used for Phalen park. The last assess
ment for the park, which was set asido
by Judge Bunn, amounted to $117,000, and
to this $22,000 was paid from the park
fund, making the total expenses for the
condemnation of the park $139,000. "
According to the figures now.being pre
pared by the board of public works, the
total expenses for the 100 acres to be
taken for tha ' park under the present
proceedings will not exceed $60,000, and of
this sum In the neighborhood of $20,000
will be paid from the park fund. ,

The request made by the employes of
the fire department to have their salaries
put back to- the scale paid several years
ago is being considered by the board of
fire commissioners. In order to grant the
request It would be necessary to Increase
the department budget for next year to
$215,000,. the maximum amount allowed
under the charter for the department.
For the past two years the conference
committee and the council has allowed
the fire board $200,000, and nearly all this
amount has been expended each year. The
members of the fire board feel that the
request for a raise In salaries is a just
and fair one, but are not sure that the
conference committee or the council
would agree to an Increase of $15,000 In
• • •
The members of the police force would
also like to have their salaries put back
to the scale of four years ago, but are
chary of making any demands along the
line like the firemen. The officers and the
patrolmen ar^ue that if the fire board
raises the salaries of the firemen it is
nothing more than fair that the salaries
of the patrolmen also be Increased. As
the increase In both the fire and police
departments would necessitate an In
crease of one-third of a mill in the tax
rate for 1900, it is hardly possible the con
ference committee or the council will
listen to the proposition.

DEXtED A REHEARING.
Supreme Court Destroys Hope of
• the Commission Men.
The supreme court yesterday denied the
application for a rehearing in the case of
The State, ex rel. Mohler, vs. Phil T.
Megaarden, as sheriff of Hennepin coun
ty. The denial was filed, oper curiam,
and written by Judge Collins.
The court, in. denying the application,
says: "Counsel for relator in a petition
for reargument urged two points to
which reference should be made.
"The first is that for the purpose of sus
taining the classification as made in law,
the court announced that certain conduct
on the part of persons who handled wheat
on commission had become a matter of
common talk among the people of the
state, and this announcement, counsel in
sists, is wholly without foundation and
absolutely erroneous. Whether we are
right or wrong in this is of no moment.
The basis of the opinion, as is obvious
from a reading, is that this particular
business of selling agricultural products
and farm produce is affected with a pub
lic interest and is liable to abuse, and
for these reasons is subject to police reg
ulations by legislative act. Nothing more
is necessary on this point.
"The second point relates to alleged
arbitrary action of the railroad and ware
house commission when prescribing what
is required by those who apply for
licenses, copies of circular letter issued by
commission, and of the bond demanded
being attached to the petition.
"It is enough to say on this point that
this action cannot affect the validity of
the law, and further that if arbitrary and
oppressive there is an adequate and com
plete remedy in the hands of those who
have cause for complaint."

May check a Cold too quick
A carpenter of Morristown. a great,
strong, hearty fellow, says: > '~7" breaks
up my Cold in two doses— l don't follow
the directions on the bettle — when T take
Cold I at once take half the contents of
a 25c. bottle, then 1 grait awhile, and
take the balance; my Cold Is gone the
same day." "While this may be all very
■well for a strong man, it is not always
best to check a Cold too quickly and
possibly drive it to some weak spot— it
is better to follow the directions of six (
pellets every hour, it then restores the
checked circulation (known by a chill or
shiver), starts the blood coursing through
the veins, makes a steady cure of a
Cold or Grip.
