PlTTSTON, Aug. 13.
n OT in forty years has there been in
tbis borough such an exciting
jVI meeting of the borough fathers
VJ as took place at the town bull
bete tonight. The spectacle tiresnted
at the little brick structure which does
duty as I'itteton's modest municipal
building before tho eouucil met to
night was oue wbicb recalled the
thrilling episodes of war times, when
citizens were wont to gather to boar
the latest intelligence from the
seat of carnage; but it was with
different purpose that three-
fourths tbe male population of
l'ittston this evening poured itself out
into the street, the ulley way, and the
vacant spaces surrounding the cotinoil
ebamber. after it bad filled all tbe
available room Inside. The throng
came, not to learu of bloodshed and
anguish nor to re vol in the details of
human sluughter, but to welcome back
the fuuious Juuketeers, to greet aud
salute and purcbanee to grasp the hems
of tbe garments of tbe celebrated men
who bad, without tho loss of a bair,
circumuavigated tbe paved thorough
fares of America's foremost cities, aud
survived tbe material seductions of
dozens of expert promoters.
1 here whs a cleat of expectancy in
the air when Chairmin John J.
Mangan rapped tbe council to order.
The routine proceeding out of the
way, Councilmun Donnelly pulled an
elaborately rolled document from his
pocket, cast nn appealing glance at tbo
chair and rose to deliver himself ot the
Jnnketeers' formal report. The curi
osity of the multitude had by this
time reached such a state of high
pressure thut thre was obvious cou-
rusiou tn the ball. Mr. Donnelly strove
to make himself heard, but regarding
bis lung power as inadequate to quell
tbe growing tumult, yielded long
enough to have a motion made that
the counnil chamber be cleared of all
persons save members aud reporters.
THE FUN BEGINS.
Chairman Mangun uo sooner put the
question than there was a storm of in
dignant "noes. Oue of those who
voted in tbo uegutive was Hotel Keeper
T. F. Ferguson, wbo stood near Chief
of Police Loftns. Chief Loftua ob
jected to Mr. Fergunou haviug u vote
in the matter and when the lutter en
deavored to defend bis right, as a citi
zen, to protest against the ejection of
taxpayers from n pUce of publie us-
em blag", tbe chiet seizod him vigor
ously and proceeded to escort bim down
Instantly btdlam broke loose. The
spectators made u rush for tbe exit,
there were cries of "ugbt 1 una a liberal
number of oaths, and for a time it
looked as if a riot would result. Mr.
Ferguson, It soeins, after be hud beeu
Luslled into the corridor leudiug to the
lock-up, mauagud to conviuce tbe cbiuf
of police that he hud done nothing to
deserve summary commitment, and be
was soon released. Meanwhile tbe ex
citement was so great upstairs that
Councilman Donnolly's report pro
gressed uo further toward a reading.
Before he could rtsuroe, Mr. Ferguson
made his way back into the council
chamber and once more insisted upon
bis right to be pn sunt at any consider-
utiou of the question of paviug reform,
involving us it did the disbursement of
large sums of public moneys.
FERGUSON AGAIN EJECTED.
Although this demand of bis was
strongly backed up by other citizens
present, be had scarcely concluded his
remarks before Chief Loftus a second
time seized bim and marched him
downward iu the direction of the bur
uess' court. Many in the audience
were disposed to rescue him; out it
seems that Chief Loftus bad propared
for this, and by the aid of deputies
managed finally to it Ferguson under
lock and key. Half un our later he
was released, and the chances are that
a suit for damages for false imprison
ment will materialize iu consequence,
Tbe proceedings of tbe council mean
while were ot a chaotic character.
Members who were opposed to the
junket and the methods of the juuket
eers withdrew from the meeting; aud
finally a motion to adiaum was euter
tallied by the bewildered chairman and
declared carried, r or two hours mere
after Water street was occupied by an
excited throng, animatedly discussing
tbe scenes of tbe meeting, Iniligna
tion mounts high against the council,
aud the once popular reform movemeut
seems to be in a fair way to be killed
by its fool friends.

It is generally conceded that while
