CINCINNATI, April 13.—Before a
throng of almost 12,000 people the Ciri
cinnatis were forced to lower thtir col
ors before the Chicago team in the open
ing game of the season. The game, while
there was little brilliant playing, was a
most exciting struggle. None of the
pitcher's used showed proper form, and
runs were plentiful as a consequence. On
the bases the locals fairly ran away from
their opponents; but they could not make
their liit.s count as well as did the Chi
cagos. For five Innings the' Reds held an
advantage, but in the sixth Bill Phillips
suddenly seerm-d ia lotie his speed, and
rive bits and a base,.on balls netted the
visitors the runs. Scott was then put In,
but he could not locate -the plate with
his tjpiftcd, ami three, poises to rirst and
as many bits added live more runs to
Chicago's record In the seventh. Tho
locals found Griffith easy enough, but
after ilenefee once settled down he kept
the hits scattered. It seemed as If tru
locals would make a Garrison finish in
the ninth, when two hits and an effort b>
Mertes to trap a fly tilled the bags, out
the necessary hits were not forthcoming.

CITY TREASURER REPORTS A
SHORTAGE OF $10,000.
Today is the last for regular payment
of sprinkling assessments. Yesterday
over $400 was received at the city treas
urer's office on account of last year's
sprinkling, and the total collections, In
cluding yesterday, amount to $40,000. This
is the tax referred to by the speakers at
the pro-charter meetings as unjustifiable
The levy for sprinkling last year was
$56,400, and the city comptroller has al
ready issued vouchers for over $21,000
against the fund. Apparently there wll
be a delinquency of $16,000 In the sprink
ling tax this year, as.only thirty days will
expire before the tax bills will be con
verted into judgments against the prop
erty of those assessed who have not
paid. Seven per cent of the total levy
goes into the city water fund, and If the
city sprinkled the streets, as provided for
in the new charter, there would be a sav
ing to taxpayers at least of the amount
that goes to the water fund.
BONDSMEN GET NO RELIEF
FINAL EXAMINATION OF TREAS
URER BONGARJD'S BOOKS.
Deputy Public Examiner J. O. Davis
returned yesterday from Chaska, where
he made a third and final examination of
the books of missing County Treasurer
He found a shortage of only $14.95 for
the years 1896 and 1897. This was not
enough to do the bondsmen any good.
They had hoped to find a large portion
of the aggregate shortage of $7,014.12 in
the years preceding 1899. That would
have materially reduced their liabilities,
if, indeed, it would not have left them
a loophole through which they might
have escaped liability altogether, by
pleading that they had relied upon the
report of the county commissioners that
Bongard was all right in his accounts for
previous years, and had thus been misled
into going upon his bond.

ATTENDANCE IS LIGHTER
SI!FT. SMITH EXPLAINS FALLIXG
OFF AT THE SCHOOLS.
Supt. Smith has received reports from
all the schools in the city, which indi
cate that the present attendance in the
city schools is much less than before
Easter. / One of the reasons that may be
given for this is the uncertainty as to the
length of time that the schools are to be
kept open. People think if the schools
are to close before the end of the term
a few weeks would not make any differ
ence, and those who look for positions
during the summer regard this as a more
favorable time than later when many
will be looking for work.

Schubert Club Will Present Han
The Schubert club has been repeatedly
urged to give the "MessLih" since it form
ed the large mixed chorus of which it is
justly proud, but, owing to the heavy ex
pense and labor involved, it has been re
luctant to essay the task. However, after
weeks of deliberation, and a careful count
ing of the cost, it decided to close its se
ries for the season with this famous ora
torio. The work of preparation has been
greater even than anticipated, and unex
pected obstacles have arisen on every »kle,
but at last all is in readiness for the
concert tomorrow night. Four fine solo
ists, well versed in oratorio tradition and
methods, and yet all young enough to
have lost nothing of the freshness of voica
so desirable, have been chosen. The cho
rus is in fine "fettle," enthusiastically
happy in the work. The orchestra is well
drilled, and is the best that the Twin
Cities so affords, a)id 'the conductor, Kmil
Ober-Hoffer, thoroughly competent.
Hence, unless unforeseen obstacles inter

at Ji'Cpi-hoii School.
A hundred or more teachers, children
and their parents gathered at the Jeffer
son school last evening to hear addresses
by two prominent citizens upon the pro

Judge Jaggard spoke first, explaining a
number of points in the old charter that
had been made more clear, and asserted
that the document, drawn as it was by
men of all political faiths, should have
the endorsement at the polls of every
voter in St. Paul.
Judge Chas E. Flandrau in his remarks
stated that if the charter was defeated
it would not be by the votes that were
cast against it. but rather by those that
were left blank by the voter. The speak
er urged the passage of the charter in
the interest of clean politics, better edu
cational facilities, as well as more im
provements of the streets and avenues
of the city.

good deal troubled with what he described as a nervous, bilious condition that ap

activity or excitement, such as would be common at periods of unusual nervous ten

favorable result was invariably apparent within twenty minutes. The only notice

while if he did not, the nervous, uncomfortable feeling intensified and led to a bad
afternoon and dred evening. He now carrier thnm with him all the lime, but doesn't
have occasion to apply to them anything like at often as h« did at first. Nowadays
there are frequent periods of from a week to ten days, or even twowedts, during
