From temperance, the delegates who
attended the quarterly convention of
the societies of the Second district of

the diocese of Scrauton held in Hsri
Gurl hull on tbe West Side yesterday
afternoon, turned to a consideration of
tbe labor troubles in tbe west.
Michael J. O'Toole, the delegate from

about the transition. He evidently be

it was some sort of a labor convention,

As Mr. O'Toole -finished rending bis
essav several of tbe delegates looked
puzzled and worried. The poiut of
order was raised that the resolution
could not be considered as it conflicted
with tbe constitution aad by-laws, but
Chairman J. C, Gallagher decided that
it did not and the document went be
fore tbe house.
Then Mr. A. J. Martin moved that
tbe resolution lay on tbe table as it was
outside of tbe province of the conven
tion to dabble in such matters. Mr,
O'Toole thoaght otherwise aud said so
in a speech somewhat louger than the
resolution. Mr. Martin declared that
tie admired Mr. O'Toole as an
orator bnt disliked to hear ''him
talk like an anarchist." TbU broagnt

tbe resolution iu which be denied the

INSPECTING GROUND FOR PARK.
Commissioners and Councilmen Fa
vorably Impressed With Tripps"
Wood Some of Its Advantages.
On Saturday the following gentle
men visited Tripp's woods to inspect
tbe ground with s view to securing a site
for a city ptrk: Col, E H. Ripple, Thos
Moore and Daniel Manuix, members of
the board of prk commissioners, and
Councilmen Burns. Golden, C. W.
Weetpfabl; D. Battle and P. J.Hickey,
accompanied by Joseph Phillips, city
engineer, and F. P. Detweiler, agent
of the Tripp estate; Gorge Keys,
coachman, showing tbe boundaries,
&u. The members took the outskirts
of the wood into Conrt street past
tbe Brieoin Shaft and made a
detonr of the property aud the
unanimous opinion expressed was
that both geographically and naturally
tbe place was eminently suitable for a
public park. With tbe addition of a
strip of land from the Delaware, Lack
awanna and Western company it
would only be necessary to build a dam
t) feet in height to secure a lake 1,600
feet long by GOO wide.
With its elay bottom the place is ad
mirably adapted for such a large sheet
of water, which would be located in a
most picturesque spot.
General admiration wss also ex
pressed as to the excellent views of the
city and tbs snrroundlng country to be
obtained from various parts of the
woods, and tbe sloping groands affords
every opportunity for transforming
into a most shunning park. The only
fear expressed was that if prompt
measures are not taken tbe land will
be secured by speculators, and hopes
were expressed that councils wonld
not allow this opportunity to pas?, in
asmush as no spot so favorably situated
could be obtained in tbe fnture.
The central city is well supplied by
Nay Ang park.the South Side uy Will
iam Council park and the North and
Went Ends has every right to claim
their own in Tripp's wood.; Court
street runs on tbe north side and' in all
probability the trustee would open an
excellent road for the West Side.
Colonel Tripp In his life tiini often
expressed bis desire to convert the Und
into a public park smd with that luten
tion the splendid trees In Tripp's wood
have been kept intact and Mrs. Ira
Tripp is very favorable to the project.
On their retarn the inspecting party
was entertrlned to light refreshments
by Mrs. Tripp.
