The main questions nudsr considera
tion at the June council meeting were
the Rapid Transit compaey's ordinance
and tho Citizen's G is company's ordi
nance. The latter received no oppm.
iton, but the former was .oumarci ul 'y
criticized and voted again it by Mr.
Pay ton. The company was granted a
franchise over a yoar ago, but owing
to obstacles in the Serantou council
manic chambers they had to relinquish
their former route where they connect
with the city line and nre now endouv
oring to getanotlier franchise that will
carry them to a point from where they
can enter the city. Mr. Pay ton opposes
the scheme on the ground that the
Transit company have not as yet com
menced work on the former route, and
until they show their good taitn by se
curing a city terminus and begin oper
ations on their road bod be does not
think it advisable to grant them any
more rights of way. On motion of
Mr. Walsh, however, the ordinance
passed tirst reading. The Cilizons' Gis
company ordinance paHdd first read
iui?, but Mr, Walsh's motion to hy it
pass second reading was lost. The old
borough attorney fiht of 180:1 was
again unearthed by Burgess Dagau
informing the council of bis refusal to
sign the order No. 495, payable to Mr.
M. E McDonald for services. This is
tho order which caused snch furor on
tho last meeting night of 189d and
caused President Pay ton to declare
the council adjourned sine die. Tne
other members, however, did not uot
with Mr. Payton and ordered the sal
ary paid Unless council decides to
pay Air. McDonald, ho will undoubted
ly sue for the amount. Mr. Mcliugh
recommended a fence around tho bor
ough building, which was place on
file. Among the citizens who had
grievances was Michael McHugh, wtio
complained of the unsafe condition ol
the mountain road, and notified the
couucil that one mouth's grace would
be given them in which time they
must repair the load. A special com
mitteo composing the entire council
will view the road at once and note
necessary repairs. John Swift atked
a settlement for injuries to his horse
which were caused by a bad road bed
where the Gas and Wnier company had
been laying pipes. Viewers had de
cided against the borough, so a com
mittoe was appointed to wait on Mr.
Swift and in conjunction with the
borough attorney effect some satisfac
tory settlement. Secretary Cham bor
lain, of the new board of health, pre
sented the particulars of the organisa
tion of said board. They were referred
to Attorney Daggan for approval. The
secretary was instructed to notify prop
erty owners on Elm, Willow and Wal
nut streets to lay sidewalks and gut
ters. Anthony Close hue returned from a

There is n great deal to bo said in favor
of tho trousers costumes for women pro
posed and often carried by dress reform
ers. Such attire is convenient In all weath
er, healthful, light and slmplo. But
there are also many things to lto said
against them. They tiro unbecoming ex
cept Ui it schoolgirl, they lack dignity, and
they mako it woman look like a very in
ferior kind of man, Mtisculino clothing
emphasises a man's eood points bis

cular development but it detracts from a
Woman's natural advantages her grace
ful carriage, delicate form and general
softness of outline, whioh are best set off
by flowing draperies that lend themselves
to each movement. Turkish women, who
exist only to be beautiful, and whoso cos-
tumels one of the most artistic, and becom
ing in the world, wear trousers, but over
them wear a long clinging skirt that trails
upon the door. It is usually only women
of the laboring classes in any of the coun
tries so enthusiastically quoted by dress
reformers who wear tho simple trousers
costume. It is undoubtedly the dress par
excellence for strictly utilitarian purposes,
und the fashion if generally adopted would
be a great relief to hardworking women,
But if reformers expect to BUCCocd in mak
ing it really fashionable they will probably
find themselves very much out of their
reckoning, for fashionable women are not
Inclined to adopt any extreme novelty In

which are comfort and convenience.
By all means let women who wish or
whose business requires them to wear trou
sers do so. But all attempts to foroo the
custom upon women as it mass, either liy
rldioule or moral coercion, will meet with
failure. The days of sumptuary laws aro
past, and WO are all going to wear juat
what we like if we can get it.
