BELL MUST FlfiHT ALONE
RKPLBL.IC.VN COMMITTEES REPUDI
ATE PROCEEDING FOR OUSTER.
M. J. Bell promises that the applica
tion for a writ or quo" warranto in the
"ouster proceedings," the Sixth ward
Alderman, M. J. : Moriarty, will be filed
this week. , ; _._.',■■.:,"-••
The Republican city and county com
mittees have absolutely repudiated the
proceedings according to the Midway
News, which says:
The Republican party of the clly cf St.
Paul will not undertake to oust Mayor
Smith or the present set of Democratic
city officials. If the Pioneer Press ard
some disconsolate officeholders insist
upon such an enterprise they will have
to go into it strictly on private account.
The Republican organization will not put
a finger into it. It has been so deoracd,
by the unanimous voice of both the He
publican city committee and the Repub
lican county'committee, in joint cession.
Armand Albrecht, ex-assemblyman,
who would be one of the beneficiaries m
the event of a court decision invalidating
the new charter and ousting the present
city officials, so clearly presented the
legal status of the case that not another
word was spoken. Although there were
about seventy-five representative Repub
licans m the meeting, a motion asking
the former Republican city officials to
institute proceedings in the courts was
tabled without a dissenting vote.
However the courts might decide upon
a technicality of law, there is absolutely
no douht that upon a question of politics
the people meant to elect Robert A.
Smith mayor of St. Paul, and did elect
him.
However the adoption of the new char
ter may affect the best interests of the
people, there is absolutely no doubt that
whether intelligently or stupidly the
people meant to adopt it, and did adopt it.
Whether or not Mayor Robert A. Smith
has gone against the "intent" of the new
charter may well give rise to an honest
difference of opinion. But the election of
Chester A. Smith would in no sense have
changed this situation.
If the Pioneer Press company, or any
of its employes, political or otherwise,
desire to test this question in the courts,
they have a perfect right to do so. But
to undertake to saddle such responsibil
ity upon the Republican organization is
quite a different matter.

STAFF MUCH TOO SMALL
DAIRY AIND FOOD DEPARTMENT
HAS TOO MUCH WOttK.
In view of the fact that the dairy in
dustry has'grown more rapidly than al
most any other in the state and the dairy
and food department has had to keep
pace with this growth, the officials of
the department think, and stated yes
terday that it would bo advisable to have
the working force increased.
Said E. D. White, of the dairy and food
department, yesterday:
"The appropriations maae by the legis
lature for this department twelve years
ago were as lnrgc as they are at the
present time. Then there were no cream
eries in the state worthy of mention nor
any cheese factories. Now we have about
700 of the former and CO of the latter
There were few adulterations at that
time. Now they are numerous.
"The department now has only four
regular men in the field. Once in a
while I go around, miking live in all.
There is more work thnn the depart
ment can attend to and the coming legis
lature should be given to understand
as much."
Speaking further about the record of
the state in the dairy industry, Mr.
White said:
"This year has been an exceptional cne
for Minnesota. The state has taken m< re
prizes than d*ny other state in the Union
and there is probably no country in
Kurope that can show a better record In
dairy product;?. I was just footing up
some of the prizes taken this year. At
the National Buttermakers' convention
at Lincoln, Neb., the state walked oft
with the iirst prize. It captured the
grand prize for butter at the Parip
exposition (nobody knows what the priza
is as yet). Half a dozen gold medaJs
were also taken there. At the state fair,
several outside states were represented
in the dairy department, but the chief
prizes went to Minnesota.
'The department ought to be suppiiei
■with sufficient funds to meet new con
ditions arising through the growth of the
industry."

616 BANAn/waR IS ON
BIT PRICES IX ST."PAIL. WILL NOT
CHANGE.
A banana war of large proportions i.-?
now facing waged in Chicago, and the re
tail price of the succulent fruit in that
city threatens to take a tumble from
the dizzy height from which it has been
"boosted" by the trust. An independent
company has entered the field against
the monopoly, and, it is said, has an
excellent opportunity to bear the prices
down to a more reasonable level.
In view of this it is not comforting to
those who in this city have a taste for
this fruit to be told that even though
the prices in Chicago drop to 1 cent a
dozen, local quotations will remain firm
ly at the present level. This is, how
ever true, according to one of the most
prominent wholesale dealers in fruit in
St. Paul.
Jules C. Fanechon, manager for E.- P.
Stacy & Sons, in discussing the effect
the Chicago war would exert on the
local prices, said:
"Chicago prices have absolutely no in
fluence on the market here. Up in this
Northwestern country we use the Port
Limon bananas almost exclusively, and
the trust has complete control of this
variety of the fruit.
"We use this kind because it is the
best and is less liable to spoil, either
in transit or after being shipped from
here to various points in the Northwest.
Bananas are extremely susceptible to
climatic conditions; it takes but a trifling
variation in temperature either to "cook"'
or chill them, and it is of course highly
important that they reach the point of
ultimate consumption in first class con
dition.
"It will surprise most people to know
that in St. Paul better bananas are sold
on the average than in Chicago, but it
is the case, nevertheless. There the vast
majority of the bananas sold are of the
kinds known to the trade as Port Limon
culls, or Honduras. These are greatly
inferior to the true Port Limon and
are sold much cheaper. That is why the
independent company is able to compete
with the trust in Chicago.
"Here competition is virtually impos
sible, because no other company can sup
ply the Port Limon fruit! Cheaper
grades would not be of much use except
for immediate consumption. We could
not ship it out from here and obtain
satisfactory results.
"To illustrate what I mean,
I may say that bananas can
not stand a temperature of
fifty degrees without being chilled,
and sixty-one degrees is the limit the
other way. Poor varieties spoil quicker
than good, and as it is a difficult mat
ter to always keep the fruit at a proper
temperature, it is necessary to keep none
but the best in stock."

ALL BUT THAT FOR PLUMBING
WERE, YES
TERDAY
BONDS EEAIIZE GOOD PRICE
On the $5.0,000 Issue a Net Premium
of $1,820 Was Received-
Better Offer Was
Rejected.
All but one of the contracts in connec
tion with the erection of a new county
jail were let yesterday at a special meet
ing of the board of county commissioners,
and the $50,000 additional bonds issued
were satisfactorily sold.
Although the interest which these bonds
bear was advertised to be 3^ per cent, it
was demonstrated that the credit of
Ramsey county stands so high in finan
cial circles that bonds bearing 3% per cent
interest can be floated at a premium.
One of the firms tendering offered to
purchase the whole issue at 3 1i per cent,
and in addition offered a premium of $5.
This offer was the most satisfactory of
any received,-.-tout as the board had in
vited tenders, at 3M> per cent, the com
missioners fe^t that it would be an in
justice to the other to accept it
As it was, phe ,)ralf of the issue went
to a city financial institution, the Union
bank, at a premium of $18.35 per $500 bond,
and the rest fb Kleybolte & Co., of Cin
cinnati, at $18.05 per bond, the price which
this firm offered 7 ior the entire issue.
The tender bt JtHe Union bank for half
was accepted without much discussion,
and then began* a long wrangle for the
remaining $25,000.; Kleybolte & Co.'s offer
of $18.03 per $50& bond, or $1,805 for th 3
entire issue, Harfis & Co.'s tender of
$1,796, and the. Slrfmesota Loan & Trust
company's offej: 6f;ss premium for &A per
cent bonds werev the three principal bids
considered. The latter offer, reduced to
the basis of>the others, meant a net
premium of $1,535, but as the letter of th e
advertised bids was not complied with,
it was thrown out, as placing all the
other bids under an uniair disadvantage.
As between Harris & Co.'s bid and that
of ttie Cincinnati company, the board
finally decided in favor of the latter.
Tho premium realized from the pur
chase of the bank is $917.50, from the
Kleybolte company, $302.50; total, $1,820. .
JAIL CONTRACTS LET.
Contracts for the new jail were then let
to the lowest bidders as follows:
For building the jail and sheriff's resi
dence, J. H. JDonohue, $113,668.
For .iron aitti jstefl cell work, Fairly Jail
Building & Manufacturing company,
$29,589.
P'or : heating and ventilating, Dwyer &
Co., $7,980. ... :
For electrical wiring, C. A. Moßride,
$2,385.
The plumbing contract was not let.
D. J. Harrington was the lowest bidder,
but there seemed to be a disinclination
to award him the contract. Som>e of the
commissioners stated that they had been
informed that he employed non-union
labor. Herchmer Johnson appeared on
behalf of Mr. Harrington, and stated that
since the strike there had been two fac
tions of union men, of which the poorer
class had returned to work. If these
were employed a poor job would be the
result. Mr. Dwyer* one of the bidders,
said he had heard of- no such dissensions
in union ranks? to the end it was decided
to refer tiie rs&'tter to a committee con
sisting of Commissioners Powers, Wright,
and Gray. Thp .committee will meet to
day at 2 o'cloqK^nd report to the board
at a special m«fttifig to be held tomor
row afternoons i
The board then adjourned until 3
o'clock in tttS^-ftfternoott, and, on re
assembling, took/up the bids on the re
moval of the \jbTd-"jail. Three were re
ceived, and J..'pFajreafal was given the job
at $70S for takjpg-down the building and
replacing the sidewalk.
On motion, surety-bonds were required
from the sucdessftll bidders, as follows:
Building jail, per cent of the contract
price; cell wor#, 20 s per cent; heating and
ventilating, 30 per.cent: plumbing, 40 per
cent; and forithe electrical work, a bon<j
in the full amount? of the contract.
A part of the rdutine business trans
acted was th 3! approving of the official
bonds of the newly elected county at
torney, county .surveyor, coroner, and as
sistant county attorney.
UNCLE LOREN IS CAUSTIC

ST. PAIL. SUGGESTION.
There was some irony in the reply of
Congressman Loren Fletcher, of Minne
apolis, to the St. Paul Chamber of Com
merce to its requests of last week. Mr.
Fletcher said he was between the devil
and the deep blue The chamber, in
one sentence, asked the abatement of the
war taxes, and, in the next, an appro
priation for a memorial to Senator Davis.
He would do the best he could, but he
suggested that the chamber might do
patriotic work along the linese of devising
a scheme for the revenue, instead of the
expenditure, of the government.
The chamber passed a resolution urging
congress to establish a national park and
forestry reserve at the head waters of
the Mississippi.

DB. NOETKROP'S ADDRESS
Reviewed Early History and Influ
ence of the Cnurch in This
Country—Principles Have
Grown Broader.
The Congregational club, of St. Paul
and Minneapolis, celebrated Forefathers'
day last night at the Park Congrega
tional church with a larg# banquet, at
which 150 guests were entertained. Dr.
J. H. Hallock, of Plymouth church, Min
neapolis, president of the club, presided.
The banquet was served at small tables
arranged in the Sunday school rooms of
the church. The address of the evening
was delivered by Dr. Cyrus Northrop, of
the state university. Dr. Northrop spoke
on "The Past and Future of Congrega
tionalism." He sketched the history of
the Congregational church in America
from the early days of the New England
colonies, when it was so closely identi
fied with the colonies that it was, in ef
fect, the state religion, down to the pres
ent time, when, though severed from
the state, it is one of the strongest re
ligious influences in the land. Very ear
ly in the eighteenth century and in the
latter part of the sixteenth, other church
es began to clamor for some of the priv
ileges possessed by the Congregational
church. These privileges were extended
first to the Episcopal and then to the
Presbyterian church, until in time all
churches had equal rights with the Con
gregational church. President Northrop
stated that there had been a great
growth of Congregationalism during tha
last half of this century, and nowhere
was this growth more marked than in
Minnesota. When the first Congregation
al church was started in the state, there
were 2,000 churches in Minnesota. Now
there are 5,000, and the Congregational
ists have much to do with this increase.
The greater part of Dr. Northrop's paper
was devoted to a consideration of the
present faith of th-e Congregationalists
as compared with the old New England
faith. Without changing in any degree
its fundamental principles, the speaker
declared that that faith had broadened.
There was less talk about eternal pun
ishment today, more about God love and
brotherly love. Narrowness had given
way to progressiveness" and liberality.
The church today co-operated with those
of other faiths when some great work
for humanity was to be accomplished,
something that was unheard of in the
old New England days.
Following Dr. Northrop's address there
was an informal reception. The follow
ing women of Park church had charge of
the supper: Mrs. H. B. Gates, Mrs. Pow
ers, Mrs. Birch, Mrs. C. M. Burr, Mrs.
Sawyer, Mrs. Salisbury, Mrs. Ruff, Mrs.
L. A. Moore, Mrs. Foulke, Mrs. John
son. Mrs. White, Mrs. Noble, Mrs. G.
P. Tuthill, Mrs. Gerard, Mrs. Clapp, Miss
Burr, Miss Pike and Miss Hines.
Preceding the banquet the club held a
short business session last evening, at
which thirty-four new members were
voted into the club. The next meeting
will be held in Minneapolis, Jan. 21.
ARE BIDIN^THEIr"TIME
METHODIST MINISTERS WILL SUP
PORT WIXE ROOM ORDINANCE.
The wine room ordinance, pre.sentei to
the hoard of aldermen by Aid. Hunt,
meets the approval of the Methodist Min
isters' Association of St. Paul and will
receive their unqualified support if they
are given an opportunity of taking a
stand upon the matter. No immediate
action will be taken, however.
. It has been stated that at their meet
ing last night the Methodist ministers of
this city would take action to the oxtent
of shaping their plan 3 of campaign, but
.no action resulted from the meeting,
which, as a matter of fact, v/as held yes
terday afternoon, instead of in the even
ing.
A few divines of the Methodist church
were gathered at the Thirst church last
night for some private business, and at
this meeting it was learned that the
ministers intend to support the ordinance
when the time comes, but conditions are
not ripe now for action.
Said the Rev. Mr. Cowgill, of the First
Methodist church: "The ordinance is fa
vored by the ministers of our church and
will receive their staunch eupport, but
we will do nothing, can do nothing, In
fact, antil we have an opportunity. The
license committee of the city council has
decided to let the matter rest until th?
state supreme court renders its decision
in the case under consideration from
Minneapolis, which is practically th*
same as ours. We are merely waiting
for developments."
