MeCardy, as comptroller of the city of St. Paul, and the representative of the Commercial club, made happy ref erence to the recognized standard of the conductors' organization in_ St. Paul and the United States, and spoke of the feel ing of pleasure by the members of the Commercial club in being: able next May to welcome the national organization, which would gather in St. Paul on that date. "T like to be the guest of men," said Mr. Me.Cardy, "/who obey pfders, A body of men like this have great possibilities before them. You are not viewed in the light of railroad magnates, but I assure you your work is of greater value ar.d your worth to the traveling public of much more importance. My hope is that your path through .life .will be a hnp: y on^. and when you reach that great celestial union depot, that no red lights will be there to say halt." Howard Whce'ler spoke for the city offi cials present, and added his voice in ex tending a welcome Io the national con vention of railroad conductors to be held in St. Paul next May. He assured them that the city officials would not be lack ing in their effort to make the .stay of the visitors a happy' one. Of the national officers present, K. E. Clark, grand chief conductor, led in prominence, and during the evening's pleasure he was the guest of honor. Called upo« for a bpeecfe Mr. Clark said: "It gives me great pleasure to attend a St. Paul gathering- such sta this, and ts;)o --cially when the invitation conies from the members of No. 40. I watch for its annual dinner with eageccess, and, if possible, never fail to be there. It is a part and-paroel of the'best-labor organi zation the country has today, something, 1 am sure, those who have had dealings with us will attest to In olden times the railway conductor was a hewer o£ wood and a drawer, of water, but, thanks to organization, they are now the peer of all. Our aims are toelevate, to educate, and. in the end, to work for the welfare of both employe and employer. Labor organizations were at one time asso ciated with everything that wa? disrep utable,, , but happily the public mind has been removed of that delusion, and I think the . Order. ,of Railway Conductors have been instrumental in bringing this about. We work for our members while they are alive. Each draws from the dther something of good, and thus we as sist in .making .our . ca.llitjg one that no one can discredit. W e work for the highest possible pay consistent with the greatest amount of good service, and, as an organization; insist that each of our brothers , shall -be rewarded. We . give -in return . value receiv ed. Small;, errors found in all lines, are "accepted. as ( a matt< r oi" course," but.the "world does not forget an. error wh>>re lives are jeopardized arid perhaps;, snuffed .out without warning. These are the things pur organization makes an effort to reduce to the mini mum, and that is why nieri of only known strict habits and experience are to be found in ;lts'ra'nks.'"Our"'organization is perhaps not known as it should be, but it will. We are trying to accomplish gojd and the world will ; yet know us. We carry the banner of unionism and are fast invading? :-the- Sttudati of non-uniori ism. The very essence of a railroad em ploye is 16'yalty,' arid- ft is one of the com ponent parts of our organization. That is one reason why the railroad service in the United-States. is unequaled in the world. We work for the interests of our employers and the 'traveling public,- but while we are giving that service we' are not backward in exacting what it is worth. Our laws ; are an open book. They are not secret. They are built on right and honor... and > for the protection of all. I believe in protection, prepara tion for -warfare if necessary. The indi vidual has-the same right as a nation if his rights are trampled on. That is on e of ourjjolicies^jjut.l. am glad to say we have not had to put that policy in prac tice.

Mr. Clark thanked the city official and trade organizations for the expres sions of good will, and said the conduct ors would try to merit it by sending to St. Paul the largest representation in their history. Other speakers who extended welcomes in behalf of the organizations they repre sented were B. H. Beardsley, of the Chamber of Commerce; H. P. Hall, of the Jobbers' union, and C. J. Whelams, of the Northwest Manufacturers union. Mr. Hall, who was the recognized wit in this bunch of speakers, said the simple announcement that -the Jobbers' union was going to make an effort to welcome the conductors next May should be suffi cient to secure the success of the event. Of those who added their voice in speaking a good word for the conductors, the efforts of Mr. G. B. Finch, Judge J. A. Chandler, of the Milwaukee; Thom as Lynch, of the Great Northern, and J. A. O'Brien, of the Omaha line, were among the many that were appreciated. Mr. Lynch, as a member of the passenger association, said that his connection with the railroad business gave him ample opportunly to recognize the loyalty and zeal of the conductor. He was thrown in daily contact with them, and while possibly not in as large numbers as on the prrsent occasion, yet he always round the sample packages good, and could vouch for the balance of the shipment. In the election of officers, which pre ceded the banquet, the following were selected: Chief conductor, J. D. Condit: assistant chief conductor, 11. D. Powers; secretary nrui treasurer, M. N.

Considerable conjecture is on as to whom Mayor ..Smith will nani; ; to fill tha vacancies in the water beard and in the fire commissioners, which take placa with the closing or' the present year. On the water board there will be two vacancies and in the board of fire, com missioners three vacancies, all of which, according to the charter, must be filled on or before Dec. 31. On the water board R. B. C. Bement and President J. H. Wolterstorff are the ones whose terms expire, and the names most frequently heard as their successors are Thomas Grace and George W. Free man. The latter will likely be named for the four-year term and the former for the five-year term. Maj, Bement has been a member of the water board for nearly ten years, receiv ing his appointment at the hands of Mayor Smith. Friends want him retain ed, but it is hardly possible that they will succeed. Of the board of fire commissioners. Messrs. Vanish, Walther. and Sharood will have to retire, and this fact is not without considerable annoyance to Chief Cook, who fears, upon their going, the removal of his own official head. His late mix-up with Patrolman Hennessy has removed any civil service talk in his fa vor, and he can only view the future with fear and alarm. Some of his aids will also likely feel the ax, as the new appointees will make the board Demo cratic. Of those mentioned for the vacancies, Albert Schweitzer, T. J. Clarkin and Reu ben Warner Jr. seem to lead in the race. A r.tfmber also aspire for the position of secretary to the board, now held by Capt. J. A. Owens. Those mentioned are George Mitsch, R. O. Strong and William O'Gorman. . County Commissioner E. B. Lott, who has received the- indorsement of the vari ous local unions for the position of state labor commissioner, has, in the opinion of his friends, a good chance of receiving the appointment.

ALCOTT COMPARES THE TWO GREAT TEACH* ERS MAST POINTS OF SIMILARITY Both Dlftpl&yed Wisdom at an Early Age, Were Wanderers and Tray . . eled t WjtlL Disciples— Teachings Differ. The lecture of Rev. A. N Alcott on Confucius at the Universalist church of Messiah yesterday afternoon arou<=ei great interest, more particularly so bj cause the subject was one that has been touched on-considerably of late in thi-j country. The lecture was largely in the nature of a^ comparison "between Confu cius and Jesus, and the speaker brought out the points o£ similarity in their lives He said, in t>art: "Tn Confucius we come on a thinker. We have a key to him in orve of his say ings: 'Man is greater than any system of thought; man can enlarge his princi ples.' This is the explanation of his won derful influence over China. There is something suggestive and encouraging in such a continued hold of thought and of moral ideas on so many billions of people in the aggregate during twenty-four cen turies. "When we see that Confucius and Zo roaster and other great t n inker3 ho!d such a wonderful sway over people, ages after their death, we are forced to be lieve there is an essential Christ in every man, no matter how germinal it may be, an essential Christ in Buddha, and in every man of his followers and so on through the long list. "All great leaders of religious life teach us that our aim should he lofty, and that belief should pervade in spirit every phase of life—political, social, leg islative, industrial. BOTH WERE LOWLY MEN. "Both Jesus and Confucius were poor. The former, during his early manhood, wrought at the carpenter's trade. Con fucius, at the age of seventeen, worked in an office. Aa the Bible tells, Jesus surprised parents and others at the a°e of twelve by re&son of his precocious wisdom. Confucius, at a you/Tiful age, mastered all the' religious "literature of China, and was wise in sacred lore. "Tt might be said that Confueim; was poor irom his youth, because When he was only tlreef years old his father died, and, shortlyjafter, Ms mother also. When «he diod donfiicius mourned her for nviny years* shut himself up in his hut, which was near:! her grave, and devoted himself to his books and big studies You a!l know' what Jesus did for his mother, when he hunt;- on the cross. He. did not forget4ier even-In- the midst of his agonies. Confucius was a wanderer from province to province, the most of his life going about giving instruction to his disciples and others, in similar :a~h ion Jesus traveled about. Confucius did not really have a place he, could. call his home. Jesua srud: " 'The foxes have holes and the brds of the air have nests, but, the Son of Ma<i hath not where \p lay his head.' Jesus was born in a stable at Bethlehem, and an angel wjth a multitude of the heavenly host appeared, saving: 'Glor/ to God in the .highest, and en earth pe'ce, good will towrd men.' "Confucius ;was born In a cave and. It is related, ho 1 was attended by fairies at the time. Jesus began to teach at 30; Confucius at 22. Jesus chose twelve from among- all. those who heard him to -be continually with him and about hi 3 person. Confucius chose ten of the high est class of mind and character amon? his diseipjes to ever be--near him for espeeia} instruction and companionship. One of these- was rash and impetuous, like the aposgle Peter, -and another was loving and t£fi<ler, like the apostle J-ohn. Now. In onlc r to understand Confuciua, it is i.. :,j ever bear in mind that he liv.-d ;i!i;i <li 1. hi.s work under a strict and rigid patriafehiaV system of society. There is no.tfti.ng thut explains the China of today as do.-s this fact, this key. "It teaches us why Confucious thought out the moral system which is his, and why it contain.- as much and as little a-s it tfOcs. ■• You all know under what Con ditions Jesus lived and worked: It was •different with Confucius. He began to work in the ytar 52!) B. C, at twenty two. China was not by any means as large as it "is now. U was in area only (.no-sixth of the present empire and the .population was from 10.000,000 to 15,000,00 i) of people. As I have said, Confucius ear ly recognized the rights and duties of life. He was intensely practical, and he re fused to speculate on the Supreme Being or on spirits. He declared 1 that if We could not know perfectly that which was before our eyes, still less could we know and serve properly what was invisible. "However, he "did nof neglect the wor ship of ancestor*, nor common religious rights. He only would not speculate on these schemes nor lay his emphasis here. He said: "'I teach -you . nothing but what you might learn yourselves. The 1 five funda mental relation* and their virtues and their laws, and the five capital virtues, universal charity, impartial justice, Con formity to ceremonies and established usages, rectitude of heart and mind, and pure sincerity.'• "Cnnfusius gave us the silver rule, which is the' golden rule negatively; Hi.s life was a model one, and his disciples and others rhdeavored to copy his ac tions with the belief that they might gain some of his virtues In that way. They watched ho\t he'ate, how he lay when he slept, how he acted before people, all his mannerisms and characteristic ac tions. HE WAS DISCOURAGED. "He died In poverty, utterly discour aged. He had tried to get some prince to adopt his sys tem with the hope that it would have a. wide influence, but in this he failed. At the age of .seventy years he died, and, strange to say, immediately after hi.s death people began to lament him. His truths had struck a responsive chord, and the few thousand that had been im pressed by him enshrined him in their memories. "The results of his good work contin ued to grow, and has grown steadily, as has Christianity. You all know what it is today. It is unnecessary to go in to -details. All Chma reveres Confucius and his teachings. : "But after all, • Jesus Christ still re | mains to us. and to the world. He taught of a life to come, of a heaven and a Heavenly Father. His teachings were universal and were for all time. Confu cius only lived in this world. His teach ings were of what could be seen and of what could be reasoned therefrom. i Moral life ' was what he wanted. Jesus came to save, to uplift and show the pathway- to everlasting joy." - , TO O^INIZE TRADES. 1 ■/??:?!<; I— —— - . -. —...; .-■.. Federation of Labor Directing; At tention to Wlnona and Brainerd.

FRACTURE OP LEFT L.EG FOUGHT WITH PROPRIETOR Kiftlit Scorns to Have Started After Martin Wiw Hit With a Clal> — He Was Drinking:. John Martin, who works on the farm of J. G. Shea, about two miles outside the city limits, thought he could er.joy himself more by visiting a few saloons than by going to church yesterday morn ing. He may not think so now, for he is lying in the city hospital suffering from a fractured leg, sustained during a saloon brawl. According to information given at the Albion stables last night, it appears thajt Martin, who was drinking quite heavily, became involved in an altercation with the propretor of a saloon at Eighth and Sibley streets. The Boniface! in order to emphasize the force of his arguments, is said to have employed a club, which he applied to the head of the other disputant. This treat ment did not prove as convincing as was expected, and a lively mix-up followed. When the row was over it was found that Martin's left leg was fractured just above the ankle, and he was removed to the hospital in an ambulance. On arrival there he was still consid erably the worse for liquor. His fracture was a bad one, and some time was con sumed in reducing it. The injured man is thirty-six years of age, and is single.

II ill RAN I THERE WAS XO WATER COMIXG i OVER DAMS YEJSTEUDAY - , , MOHXIXG STREET CAR LINES TIED UP Scarcity of Water \Vas Caosetl by tlie Slinttinsr, Down of tlie Mills — Mlnneax>olis Nsws, By the closing down of all the flour mills yesterday morning, which is some thing unusual, the flow of the Missis sippi river was, checked by the dam above the falls, and the ve.sult was that the Twin City Rapid Transit company for several hours yesterday lacked j dwer with which to- properly operate car-! throughout itß entire system. The street railway company" has its power house and dam below the. falls, and for power relicts upon the water that escapes through the. .tail-races of the mills, or makes its way over the upper dam. If ■ but one or two mills are running enough water goes through the canal to furnish power, but this source is checked the power must come from the water that comes over the dam. Dur ing the past week fourteen of the twenty two mills were running, including the Pillshitry A, which draws a vast amount of water. At the present time the stage of water in the river is very low, and as the mills had been drawing from it, the water at the upper dam was far below the crest. Over half of th e mills continued run ning Saturday night, and the supply was very low when they shut down at 7:3) O'clock yesterday morning. It was less than five minutes later that the wheels at the power house below the Falls Ceased running, for. the .river between the lower dam and the falls was practically dry. The water coming down the river was checked by the dnm.and nearly four.hours elapsed before it rose to the crest, flowed over and provided power for the turbines bslow. The .street railway officials had been warned that, there would probably be an insufficiency of power, and during the night the steam* engines were started, with the hope that enough power might be furnished from them to operate the system when the lower power house stop ped operations. But the call for power exceeded the capacity of the engines, and an interruption in the service occurred. Tho engines were a-ble to furnish enough power for all but the lines punning on Hennepin avenue, and north of it. on the west side of the river. The system was affected from 7:30 to 10:30 o'clock in the morning 1, and for to. portion of this time not a wheel turned on the Hennep!n avenue, north 1 Washington, Sixth avenuj north.

MEXICO CITY, Dec. Minister Li montour's report of. the financial con dition of the country, . mn.de to congrt ss on the.presentation of the annual budget is a notable document. He estimates for the ensuing: year a revenue of amount ing to $G1.6(j4.000, and expenditures <>r $61,077,9% and shows why he does not an. ticipate a large surplus for the coming . year. He takes up the present financial situation which is characterized by mope. t tary strfng-eney, and remarks: "It is impossible to disregard certain economical phenomena and certain symp, toms of the' present business situation and reveal a condition of uneasiness ; caused by the partial paralyzatinn of transactions and which to continue i"or a._^ long time would probaibly occasion a ■ formal crisis in the commerce and in dustry of a large portion of t'r.e republic." The financial minister estimates that in addition to $50,000,000 in cash deposited in banks that the holdings of tre general public in cash does not amount to more | than $40,000,000, co that the total circula tion of silver money may be estimated in ; the neighborhood of $00,000. €00. Mr. I.fmontour continued: "It la there fore not strange when Fuddenly the coun try's supply or' cash was curtailed from 10 to 12 per cent, by the exportation p" silver dollars, business should ha\t> ex perienced some degree of paralyzation. There has been an unusuaj demand f< r Mexican dollars and this demand has sensibly diminished the supply of metal eavh. here."
