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

A petition of corner lot owners on
Pine street praying that they be re
leased from the proposed paving as
sessment was referred to committee
along with tho ordinance. 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.
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
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.

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

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.
John Harvey, who owns a stablo

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

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.
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
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
