This was grant ed and Mii- committee whs Instructed to report bach as- soon as possible. The four original proposals are still under consideration, but no decision has yi-t reached as to which will be finally adopted. A suggestion was made to start an active campaign for the sale of St. Paul products to St. Paul residents. After some discussion the following 1 committee was named to look into the matter and map out the outline of a plan: Conde Hamlin, J. G. Pyle, W. J. Drisroll and J. Harry Lewis.

OWE SCORES It- - STREET DEPARTMENT Health Commissioner Says Methods Are Menace to St. Paul Dr. Justus Ohage. health commis sioner, delivered an address"3l Christ hurch last evening under uspic.es of the Men's -club of the church, upon Ihe subject: "Some of the •Resent to the City's Health." The lecture was illustrated with stereopticarf-Tiews of the free public baths on Harriet isl and, smoking chimneys and chimneys that were not smoking and- various scenes in the city's life. A Few Ohage Observations The talk was an interesting; instruc tive one. into which were interpolated just enough Ohagelsms to brand it with the trade mark of the health com-_ missioner. -A few of them were as follows: - - - The man who doesn't keep his back yard clean and free from aafa piles and other refuse isn't ■ good citizen. • The police of St. Paul are under an excellent management and doing excej lent work; tlie fir.- department is good ana in good hands; the department of street*, street cleaning and street sprinkling is decidedly rotten. The health department Js the department most vital to the city's welfare. A good many people think that I am a chronic fault finder and trouble maker. I am not Boteasj somebody tries to intrude something that I know Is wrong upon the city. or. particularly, upon my depart ment. When they do that they will find that they have got a scrap on their hands. I am afraid that my smoke ordinance is going to lose in the council, but if it does it will be because there is never less than 150 persons at every meeting of the council to protest against it while I am lh»- only one to support it. All the good citizens remain peacefully at home or go to se<> Terry McGovern. I am often asked how long the sanitary i skirt should be. I always answer: A lit tle over two feet." The atiti-siiit ordinance is a good thing. It has done away with the crowds of young sports who* used to lean against building corners and stare at ' passing women and girls. They don't do it now because it takes too much energy to walk over to the gutter and expectorate. I have just as much right to ' throw garbage into the windows of your home as a building owner has to allow smoke from liis building's chimney to-lloat around and blow in. Discusses City Departments There were other things besides Ohageisms. however. The doctor went into a detailed description of the work ings of the liealth department, and of the operation of the free baths on Har riet island, and of the success which has attended his efforts to abate the smoke nuisance. '- '.' In paying his respects to the street department he grew severe and de clared that their methods of working \v;is a menace to the health of the city. He declared this to be especially true in the methods of the department in sweeping the dry streets with brushes and then dumping the refuse in vacant lots. This latter proceeding also causes a waste of labor, according to the dirc tor. "Why!" he exclaimed, "I have se^n four men unloading street sweepings from two wagons onto a vacant lot and there were two foremen watching them do the job. and a street commis sioner watching thf foremen. And all they were accomplishing was to get the dust started so it could blow away over some other quarter of the city." CAPITOL COMMISSION DISCUSSES SPRING WORK Architect, Decorators and Painters' Re- ports Are Considered The members of the state capitol com mission ni*-t in executive session yesterday morning and afternoon and transacted routine business. Accounts were gone over and reports from Architect Kmwi and the decorators and painters who have contracts for beautifying the new building were heard.

A discussion over the contracts for painting the four war panels to be piacea on either side of the governor's public reception room took up the entire after noon, but no action was taken.

COUNTY BOARD Of CONTROL REPORTS Annual Story of Local Eleemos ynary Institutions Is Told Mayor The annual report of the city and county board of control for 1904 was submitted to Mayor Smith yesterday. The total amount of money expended by the board was 183.380.56. which was apportioned as follows: City and county hospital (59.910.10 Almshotrsp and poor farm 14 374 97 Outdoor relief department 10.146.05 Salaries 8.949.84 The receipts of the hospital from paid patients showed J22.450.50. while the almshouse and poor farm disposed of vegetables and other produce of the value of $278.00. In addition to this latter amount the report points out the fact that the milk and vegetables sup plied to the city and county hospital by the poor farm was of the value of J2.475.62. The number of patients treated at the hospital for the entire year was 2.505. The average number of patients each day was 214. The average tost per patient a week, less cash receipts, was $3.60. There were 124 births at the hospital and 224 deaths, making the death rate 8 per cent. The most deadly disease was consumption, responsible for 41 deaths. Diphtheria came next with 18: tumors. 16; Brighfs disease and heart disease. 24; violence. 10; suicide. 5; typhoid fever. 7. and pneumonia. 16. The largest number of patients in the hospital at any one time was 257 and the smallest 177. Dr. A. B. Ancker, superintendent of the hospital, recommends that the term of service of his staff be lengthened from one year to eighteen months, and that it be arranged so that only three retire at any one time. This method would always insure the attendance of three experienced members of the staff. The number of inmates at the poor farm on Dec. 31. 1904. was 86. an in crease of 7 during the year. Forty people were received during the year, while but 26 were discharged, and 7 died. Of the entire number of inmates who were in the almshouse sometime during the year. 97 were men and 22 women. There were but 21 of these native born and 98 foreign born. The weekly cost of sustaining inmates? was $3.33. less the receipts from the sale of produce, and also that supplied to the hospital. The outdoor relief department sup plied 1.484 families with fuel, clothes, grocirles, etc. The largest number of families receiving aid in any one month was in January when 258 were helped. The detention hospital for the insane received 11 inmates during the year. Of that number 6 after treatment were unimproved and sent to the state hos pital, while 5 were cured and dis charged. The total expense of this in stitution was $442.40. The city and county physirian and assistants visited 7,500 patients out side the hospital, and received in office consultation 10.000 more. These figures include the visits made to the county jail, police stations and the work house. The training school for nurses at the i hospital conducted by Bertha S. John son, reports that on Dec. 31, there were 36 pupils in training and 3 probation ers. The value of this adjunct to the hospital is shown by the fact that there are at present 173 people on the wait ing list.
