Be VAX TON, March 15, li'M. )
Hon. William L. Connell, Mayor:
Df.ak Sin: As our year for lighting the
city treuts closes April 1, 1 suggest
whether, lustead of renewing the con
tract, it misht not be for tho advantage of
the city to buy our plant.
Our work, of the most solid nnd sub
stantial character, were built expressly 10
light the city streets, together with such
private cu9tom as might be obtained along
these lines. A is well Known, our lines
extend t hmughout the city in all directions
from the Notch to Minooka, from Little
England to West Mountain, whereror
the councils have ordered lights, we
have on hand, in coed condition, tho holl
ers, engines, dynamos aud lamps for 840
lights, ut tnoso, we are running ai pres
ent about 700, of which VM are commercial
and 410 arc city lights, leaving consider
ably more than 100 which the city could nl
once without extra exnenw, erect at such
points a. it saw fit. We have one spare
engine which can run ao lights in addition
to the above, and we have under roof the
foundations completed for still another
engine und two dynamos, good for still an
other 1-0 lights. We have also one sp ire
dynamo nn hand, good for sixty lights.
Our system, the Brii'h, I believe to be the
simplest, most satisfactory aud most easily
maintained at laaat expense of any. In
short, for city nrc lighting purposes it is
difficult to see how oar plant could well
This plant has cist ns something over
IliO.OOO. We offer it to the city for 150,
ijim, the city, of course, to aasame pay
ment of principal and Interest of our out
standing 1200,000 five per cent, debentur
honils, which, however, are not dun till
1933, though they can, If desire I, b called
in twenty years sooner.
The cost of lighting to tho city would
t"ien ba Slfl,000 interest a year, together
with such extra expense ns the profit in
Commercial lights might not defray. We
sbxmld, of course, tnrn ovor to the city,
fre of charge, all material of every kind
wo might have on band, belting, carbons,
oil, lamp globes, etc., and would be
pleased to help In every way such officers
as the city might placo in charge of their
To those who belinve it dnsirable for a
city to own its lighting plant, and to have
it ns widely extended as possible, this
would enable the experiment of ascertain
ing whnt economist lie In municipal own
ership to be tried at comparatively small
etpnto. If your honor concurs In these
view, I respectfully rsqusst that yon com
municate this letter to the councils for
their consideration. Yours truly,
W. W. Scka.ntdn, President.
Aftent the construction of the two
proposed bridges the following resolu
tion wafl adopted :
le nolved, By tho fo'ect 0. uiicll of tho
city of KeVniiton, tho common council con
curring, that the city clerk be Instructed
to Holiclt'oompotitiVH plans from at least nix
reputable bridge companies fur the sub
structure of thn proposed btldg-w over the
Lackawanna river at Linden street and
over tho Kosrlng brook from Piatt place
to Front street, the furnishing and use of
said plans to bs of do expense to the city
cf Scranton. The city engineer shall fur
nish the city clerk such data n may bo re
quired for the use of said bridge companies
to enable them to prepare the plans.
In responsa to a joint resolution ap
proved March 8, asking for an opinion
aa to the right to appropriate from the
proceeds of $250,000 of bonds author
ized by recent voU of tho people, any
amount for one of the two bridge In
exces ot $115,000 mantioued in the
original ordioaiic. 1 ; anl alao ns to
whether any appropriation can be made
bafora the passnga of on ordinance pro
viding for the issue of bonds,
City Solicitor Torrev glvos the
following opinion: The only way
In which the propriety of the nppro
priution can he raised Is by interpoii
iloti by some outsider of a bill of in
junction to restrain tb performance
of contracts let for the building of two
bridge. It might be considered a de
psrtare from the expressed intention
of the councils if more than $125,000
should be expended on 0110 bridge. If
either can be completed for Ish than
$125,000 I am of the opinion that tbe
surplus could be used if necessary for
the completion of the other.
I think funds can be appropriated at
any time to be derived from the issue
of the proposed bauds. If the bonds
should not be issued or could not be
sold the appropriation would fall. If
they are Issued as inteuds.l, the appro
priation will be valid.

and noble men have made so many and
such great sacrifices.
The speaker then traaed the history
and the achievement of th Irish peo
ple from before the advent ot St. Pat
rick down to tbe present time, and
claimed that Ireland had been pr.-ami-uent
in advanced religious thought
and iu learning, while she had the
privilege of governing herself. He
said that the love of justice of the Irish
people is demonstrated by tbt fact that
trial by jury was oi l (ii)0 years before
Alfred gave it to the Saxons. A bril -lisnt
tribute was paid to tbe character
of Dauiel G'Connell, whom the speaker
classed as one ot tbe noblest of patriots.
The peroration was an eloquent effort,
aud as Mr. O'Donnell retired from the
stage he was warmly applauded.
The next number on the programme
was tbe solo, "Promise Me," which
was sang by Wiilintn Wntkins.who for
nu encore .rendered ' 'Answer." One of
the most enjoyable numbers of the eve
ning was the duet, ''I Feel Thy Angel
Spirit," by Miss Kalhryne Moiigatiund
William Wntkin. The entertainment
cloaed with the reudition of "Two
Sailors" by Howell Davie and Richard
Thomas, Following it a reception was
tendered Mr. O'Dmtiell at the Insti
tute rooms ou Lackawanna nveuu .
