great significance in setting at work the
forces which will cevelop iu a high degree
American patriotism. The monument
will not be temporary; it will bo eudurlog
and will stand to tell the history of the
past to coming generations; it will testify
to the greatness of the men who
made the greatest of nations. Egypt,
Ninovab, Babylon, Greece and Home, were
buried beneath their own ruin, because
they had not men to perpetuate their bis

AN OBJECT LESSON
John It. Farr- Something in remem
brance of Oeueral Sheridan, symbolic of
bis enthusiasm, daring and high order of
leadership, would dispel the illusion that
he was only a dashing cavalry officer. Our
present heritage came to us In a great de
gree through a river of blood and carnage;
ono who mingled In that strife should be
perpetuated not only as an honor to the
soldier, but as an object lesson to oursel
ves and children.awakening a greater love
of 1:1,1m try and tbe qualities of a Sheridan.
T. V. f'owderly General (Jraut ald,
"A man who was pel feet in bis general
ehip must have had brains. '' Commemo
rate Ueneral Sheridan's deeds with au or
nameut to which our children can point
with pride, Scranton baa honored Colum
bus, the pioneer of discovery, and Wash
luglou, tne pioneer or liberty: It would be
particularly fitting to add a memorial to a
noted soldier. Tbe lessous of Rome. Ureece
and other ancient cities may well be taken
to heart. Iu their splendor they traveled
to ruin, j ne lessons or such men as (Iraut,
Miermau and .nenuau should be heeded
We have many in our population, particu
larly of foreign birth, who do not know
the meaning of citizenship; show them the
statue of a Sheridan ; point to it, and teach
them what victories it commemoraies.
EVEN UNTO DEATH,
Rev. D. W. Skellenger- Sheridan's char
acter, in following to the end successfully
one iden and purpose, is what wo admire;
bis memory and character are an honor to
the living. Let us perpetuate him for the
future's sake: bis indomitable pluck could
woll be inspired in tbe breasts of our boys.
When the little fellows who aro now tod
dlers ask about the man impersonated by
the statue, toll them of bis loyalty, tell
them of his patriotism, even unto death.

Much of the evening's session was
tnkeu up witb the reading of the an
nuui report of City Eaglnear Philips.
It was a carefully compiled document
of great length and contained much
valuable information and many excel
lent suggestions. Several of tbe fea
tures are herewith given.
A general statement of the estimated
cost of the different improvements for
which the department prepared plans
and specifications during the year It:
Grading of streets, $7,110 02; sewers,
main and lateral. $128,187 48; filling, re
tatning wlls.et':., $10,451.50; pavement,

269 yil; side walks, curb -m l gutter.4,
215 00; pipe drains, $8,000 20; opening
of streets at.d avenue?, $20,000 ; total,
The report states that after a eureful
computation the area of the city. Is as
certained to be 1,900 square miUs, with
114,034 lineal miles of traveled streets
and si venule, 20.535 uiilea of courts
Daring the year the department ap
proved bills amounting to $180,404 75.
STREETS IN HAD CONDITION
J ue streets ot the city, with a lew
exceptions, were stated to be in a de
plorable romlition so far as lines and
irade are concerned, particularly lines.
For this the city itself is blamed as to
the lines, wbile the report places thi
responsibility for the defective grade
solely upon tho property owners. Conn
cils were advised to compel property
owners who, iu tbe future, may opeu
new thoroughfares to properly grade
and monument the same. The recom
mendations of the city engineer on the
subject of streets were numerous and
The city has in use 11,574 miles of
pavement, as follows: Asphalt, vary
ing in widths from 10 feet to 60 feet,
8.112 miles; IMgian block. 409 milss:
vitrified brick, 344 miles; wooden block.
WyckofF, 854 miles; cobble or boulder,
varving in widths lrom 10 to 00 feet,
2. 105 miles.
The report condotuus the practice of
allowing property owners along pro
posed improvements to ten- up the
roadway in making connections with
gas, sewer and water mains and then
ueglecting to properly 11, 1, soak and
tamp tbe ditches.
During the year jmt ended tho city
engineer atates that over live and one
half miles of sewera were built, giving
a s.'werage system that now agixre
gates thirty-five miles. The readiug of
the report was carefully listened to by

ment received und placed on file.
