As uniiciputed the matter of con fuming Mayor Couuell'i dismissal of Poltotman Coslett, one of ex-Mayor Fellows' appointees, brought out a di-vi.-iou of the meeting und tight ou the part of tho Fallows faction beforo defin ite action was reached. When Mayor Council's letter, asking confirmation of his action in dismissing Officer Coslett, Mratf read, Mr. demons in .veil that council concur in the mat -ter, Mr. Lauor moved that the matter he referred to its proper committer, several other ineuiuers being on their faet nt tho same time to make the mo tion. HA YOB CON. NELL CRITICISED. Mr. Mauley appeared excited and in a turbulent state of mind when his name was reached in the polling, lie said Mayor Connell had boen high handed und hud removed Officer Coslett lor political reasons. Exceptions wore taken to Mr, Man isy's remarks by Councilman Counell, who laid; ''Mr. Mauley had assumsd a kicker's uttituda probably because romo otio ha rtscomineriuVi to be ppointed has been turned down." Councilman Connell hollered the coun cil should concur in the mayor's action without hesitation. Mr. Lauer remarked that Mayor Connell had not given a public reasou for dismissal "It is an injustice," be Sriid, "to concur i,n the Mayor's action without u committee investigation, which would probably reveal that Cos lett was removed for a cause that does not leCset upon his morals," The motion to refer to committee was lost by a 11 to 4 vote, and the necessary two-third voto confirming Mayor Omuell's action resulted in 13 ayes and G nays, ai follows: Ayes Rosa, Finn, Thomas, Williams, Roche, Durr, Wagner, Kellow, demons, Diirus, Connell, Chittenden.

Mr. Koch precipitated an oracular battle with a resolutiou directing that the Linden street bridge ordinance be taken from committee and be placed ou its pas sage. Mr, Laner rose to a point of or der, contending that all matters por taining to the two bridges had by reso lution of the previous meeting been re ferred to njdnt committee and could not therefor bo recalled by either body. Mr. Thomas took tho same posi tion. The chair ruled that the point was well taken. TAKEN FROM COMMITTEE. Liter in the meeting Mr. Hoche pre sented substantially the same resolu tion, excepting that it wai a concur rent measure. Tne ohair ruled this a proper resolution aud put the question, notwithstanding Mr. Luer's protesta tion. The motion prevailed by a 9 aud 6 voto. , The committee onjrailwsys reported adversely on the ordinance graining right of way to the ycranton lUpid Transit comptny to lay track?, ertot p iles and wires and run cars by tUotrio power on certain itrets within the city. The two routes proposed were over the same territory for which fran chises were held by the Scranton Trac tion company until annulled by the mayor rccoutly. One was the Peters burg route. P. j. Horan, of Dunmore; M.J. Heuley nnd M J. Wlghtmau were turning those interested ia the passage of the ordinance. After the adoption of the report Mr. Clark stated that he had not been noti fied of the railway committee mooting which was held at 7 o'clock, An or dinance providing for the paving of Frauklin aveuuo bstween Surnce and Vine streets was referred to commit tee. An accompanying resolution was adopted providing for an asphalt pave. Mr. Hoche presented an ordinance, snbstuntially the name as the famed Browning moasure, excepting that poles be taxed 50 cents each instead of $1, that no bills be poited upon the pnlei; a section was also added, that within one year after the passage of he ordinance, all poles now standing, all cross arms shall be piinted a uni form dark green color; that all poles erected thereafter shall be likewise painted. A resolution was adopted directing that only $125,090 of bridge bonds and these confined to Roaring Brook bridge be issued, the, object being not to have the $135,000 Linden street bridge bonds issued aud hearing inter est until it location is definitely let tied. Mr. Lauer' resolution that the po lice committee be abolished beoause it had no duties to perform, was reoeived with humor, yet a motion to lay on the table only prevailed by a 9 to 6 vote.

The numerous friends of Colonel F. J. Fitzaimmons throughout the stato have. beeu apprised of the fact that the Demo crats of this county would be pleased to see him nominated for lieutenaut-governor and a strong seuttmoiit is being developed in favor of his nomination. William Franz, canuidato for tho nomination for comity treaaurur. is en deavoring to got the Republican county committee to call the county convention in the near future Mr. Brant has beeu making an active canvass for the nomina tion for several mouths nud has come to the conclusion that the soouer the matter is definitely settled the better. Peter (lintor has been removed from the position or chief clork in the ofllco of the internal revenue collector, a position he has acceptably tilled for seventeen years, air. Herring says tue removal was made to decrease the wonting torceiu me office, but it is suspected that the reaaou is found in the constant clamor for his re moval that wub raised by "to-the-victor.s-belong-the-spoils-Democrats." Simou P. FuusMild, record clerk, will horeaftor do Mr. (ilnter's work and Mr. Faussold's work will be divided among the clerks of the office.

INQUEST 6F THE CORONER'S JURY Last Night Testimony Was Taken of Over a Score of Witnesses The Italian Residents of Old Forge Aro Very Reticent The Search Yet Continues Without Effecting Up to a Late Hour Any Capture. The inquest on the murder of Eman ul Lorn last Sunday at Old Forg9 by Crincenzo MedaU was held last niaht at El ward Fallons' hotel at Old Forge A more bloodthirsty or uncouth lot of human beiugs could hardly have gath ered than tue suffocating hordes of tho murdered mau's countrymen wno crowded around to bo ealltd in turn to give testimony before the jury. Coroner Kelley and the jury wero on the sceuo early in the evening aid the spot whero the murdered man fell was Iniptettd, After that, the tedious en deavor of extorting testimony relative to the crime was begun. The first wit uoss asked to testily was Anionic Esy tsnya. Wlmn ,K first shot was tired tin was sitting iu a room at his houae reading a prayer book. He saw the two last shots fired by the murderer. As he watohod the murder, th dlttanne the men were apart seemed to him about twenty feet, tie boarded in the hotse of Autouy Greoho. The mur derer also lived there, bin the witness was not able to slate if Madala was iu tne habit of carrying a revolver, al though he knew that he kept one in his room. Joseph Salvi, wliow promiaos were s-arclied by Sheriff Fahey on tho day of the murder, was next sworn. His Utiimony was brought out by force and he shewed a OlipotltloD to hold back something he eonld tell. Nothigg important was elicited from hi m. DIPOBTAHT TESTIMONY. John Harvey, who owns a stablo clone by tho scone, went to feed bis horses for supper. Ho heird tho shots and on turning saw Medals running away und he held a smoking revolver iu his hand. He saw the dead mm iu a few minutes and lii'e had left the body. The man with whom the murderer wns boarded nxt heard. He s.dJ that Me dals always owned n pistol, but he did not know whether he carred it with him ou SauJay. IU heard the shot-i about 5 o'clock ia the evening and saw the man wno fired them run into the bonai of Joseph Satol. Th? wile ot Balol wns next sworn and she doniod that M.-dala .-n kept iu biding ia hor home. S'aa saw him enter the froot door and dash throunti the house toward the back door and start for the Sibley mountain. That was all she knew about the case. Augelo Scitrlo saw Madala come out of his boarding house aud walk toward Sal vis barber shop. lhey met Loro who said to Medals,: "Don't yon want to pay for those three shttVII?" "Sundav me no pay anybody, was Modala's reply. Lirosaid, "you must give iii them or 1 will make you." At this .Med.ila struck him and lust ufter delivering the blow he whipped out bis revolver and discharged five bulb'ts into Loros body without tskiug three minutes to do the deed Medala then rau as fast as he could fine aud witness did not see him afterward. WARNING FOB MEDALA. Mike Caputli saw Ljro in a position that appeared as if ne were begging for hit iife. He rushed riut and caught Medala by the coat and was told if be did not go h would meet the same fat. Medala then ran toward Joaeph Salvi's house. Wm. liazolton said he saw the men together and heard them using very angry language. He cauld not under stand what was said, as it WAstnkeu in Italian, but without what seemed to him any provocation whatever, Medala struck Lero iu the face and followed it up with firing the bullets of his revol ver as fast as be coulJ pull the trigger Two or three men tried to grapple with Mu.lala, but he assumed the at titude as if he would fire into the people around. There wore noiirly a dozon other witnesses, but their testimony did not differ from that of the -twin quoted above. After the witnesses were nil ex aiuined the jury retired aud rendered a verdict that biuauuel Loro came to his death by bullet wonn Is from a pistol in the hau ls of Crincenzo Medala.

Wnen he called iu the afternoon Mr. Hand's cierk allowed his prospje tive customer to give the wnool a try around the block. He has been trying the wheel over since. The account of tho case which ap peared tho following day in Tue Trib une was nan by a Djlaware, Lacka wanna and Western conductor who two days later notified Mr. Hand thi a party answering the description had boarded hii traiu at Clark's Summit aud left tho train at Binguamtou. When THB TRIBUNE'S story appeared Florey and Holt decided to investigate the idontity of a man who had also secured a wheel from them after for several days being dined ami otherwise entertainod as an agent of the Premier Bicycle company, Correapondeuce with the Pramior company revealed the fact that the local firm had been victimized.

His eon had during several months' stay iu the lat ter city cut quite a figure as a social light. Yesterday afternoon Mr. Hand was notified by Mr. Labnr from Strouds burg that Lawson would arrivo In Scranton wlt'i an officer on tho 12.10 midnight Delaware, Lackawanna and Western train.
