Their Knowledge of Paper and Has

remarks and then Mr. Wormser arose
and moved to have an investigation.
He suid the board could not afford to

supplies than what they could be se
WITHERS WANTED FIVE MINUTES.
Mr. Jacobs, chairman of the supply
committee, did not look with favor
upon giving so much importance
to Mr. Witber's allegations, and said
that the committee did what it thought
was best and waa quite positive that it
had done its duty.
Mr. Withers here asked for five
minutes to prove his assertions. Mr.
Jacobs wanted to know why Mr,
Withers had not appeared before the
committee with his information before
the bids had been awarded. "We told
him when we were going to meet" con
cluded Mr. Jacobs. "Yes you did I
You did like fun," relorted Mr. With

to prove the statement Mr. Withers
was surprised to see that the figure
he bad intended for a one looked some
what like a five aud had deceived the
committee. Mr. Schriefer stated that
the Withers bids were in a chaotic atate,
and that the committee conld not make
bead or tail of them. He did not sub
mit samples of pads as called for, but
a lot of paper.
Chairman Jacobs of the Supply com
mittee then remarked that as the hon
esty of the committee bad been culled
into question he would insist on an in
vestigation. Mr. Withers Jumped up
and said that he had never doubted the
committoe's honesty, but he questioned
their knowledge. Thereupon Mr.
Wormser withdrew his motion for an
investigation and the committee's re
port was adopted, as follows:

A committee from tbe reeontly an
nexed Bellevue district, consisting of
John Hale, Edward Harris and William
F. Williams, appeared before the board
to ascertain what the board intended
to do about furnishing a school for the
district. Mr. Hale stated that tbe
Bellevue school hones was destroyed
by fire in December last. The Lacka
wanna townshiD board refused to put
up another bnildiog, alleging that tbe
township was not bound to do so, inas
much as the Bellevue district was
about to become a part of Soranton.
' rUPILS PROVIDED FOR.
The committeo answered this by
calling the attention of tbe township
to the fact that it had collected the
school taxes from the Bellevue district.
The township had also attempted to
collect the taxes there for this year but
the Bellevue people secured an injunc
tion restraining the , collector. Mr.
Hall said tbe object of the Bellevue
people was not to avoid the taxes but
to have them properly applied.
On motion of Mr. Williams the
teachers committee was instructed to
have the old building in the Fifteenth
ward repaired, and to assign teachers
there for the present to take care of
the children of Bellevue. The com
mittee thanked the board for their ac
tion. On motion of Mr. Carson the janitor
at No. 12 was granted a salary of f 15

ACADEMY OF MUSIC REOPENED.
Thatcher and Bib Focpls Trove Good
Entertainers In About Gotham.
The Academy of Musio opened its
season last evening with "About
Gotham," a skit which enables George
Thatcher and his company to display
their varied talents.. During the sum
mer months the thoater has been greut
ly beautified, and tboss who visiwd it
last night were muoh pleased with the
transformation. It is cozy, neat and
Mauagor Burgundor was fortunate
iu the piece seleeted for the opening
night. "About Gotham' is not destined
to live in the history of the drama, nor
was it built for that purpose. It was
simply intended as a medium for
Thateher and his people to get before
the puplio aud'it serves its purpose ad
mirably. It is laughable and entertaining and
just suoh a warm weather diversion as
the average theatre goer likes to pat
ronize. Thatcher was as droll and
clever ns of old, and some of those who
assisted him in tbe work of entertain
ing were Carroll Johnson, Ed Marble,
E. C. Jobson, Fred Oakland. William
Thompson, William Grillio, Ei Marks,
Diive Foy, the Byron sisters, Florence
McKinley, Alice Blauvet, Cecils Lor
raine and Cora Carlisle. '
IT AFFECTS THE GLASS TRADt
New Tariff 111 Has a Depressing- Effoct
on It Already.
The Green Ridge Glass works will
not resume operations on Sept. 1, as
expected, and the management is un
abie now to say just when it will be
possible to again light the furnaces.
Tbe tariff bill is responsible for this.
At present the outlook for the pres
ent season is not very bright. It is cus
tomary for the glass factories all over
tbe country to light up about tiapt. 1.
but this year orders are nor plentiful.
The new tariff bill makes a 25 per
cent, reduction on glass which will
greatly interfere with the American
industry and enable European goods to
make serious inroads on the trade of
the American factories in the home

F. E. Wood, President
Park Citizens Hold a Public Meeting to
Agitate Its Construction. .
WILL BE URGED UPON COUNCILS
Spirited Addresses by Prominent West
Siders and Resolutions in Favor of
the Contemplated Improvement A
Committee Appointed to Wake Up
the Councils to the Necessity of the
Viaduct Details of the Meeting.
A publio meeting to further tbe pro
ject of constructing a viaduct over the
Delaware, Lackawanna and Western
tracks on West Lsckawunna uvenue
wus held in St. David's hall last night.
The meeting was under the auspices of
the West bide bqard of trade, and was
called by a special committee of that
organization which has in hand tho
booming of the viaduct.
The hall was crowded with tbe rep
resentative citizens of Hyde Park, and
all were enthusiastically in favor of
the movement. W. G. Tbomss was
chosen to preside and C. E. Daniels
was elected secretary. Addresses were
made by Mr. Thomas, Hon. T. V. Pow
dcrly, Hon. John K. Farr, Councilraen
Victor Lauer end William Thomas and
A. M. Morse.
Tbe culmination of tbe spirited ad
dresses was the adoption of the follow
ing resolutions presented by a com
mittee consisting of D. D. Evans, T.
Fellows Mason and Charlos E. Daniels:
A ViaOItOUS RESOLUTION.
Whereas, The people of the West Side,
city of Scranton, numbering nearly one
third of the population of the eutirecity,
and consequent thereto, payers of a largo
proportion of tho city taxes, have for yours
advocated the erection of a viaduct over
the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western
railroad tracks, said desire finding expres
sion through the board of trade and other
Whereas, the need of said vaiduct grows
greater daily as population increasas and
traffic grows. West Lackawanna avenue is,
and must continue to be the chief medium
of communicatlou between the central city
and the West Side; aud.
Whereas, There is a constant and men
acing danger to pedestrains, equestrians
aud occupants of vehicles, but particularly
to tho thousands who daily ride in street
cars, the said danger having soveral times
in the past, resulted in collisions between
street cars aud ruilroad trains, and iu
other escapes at tho railroad crossing
Whereas, A larce part of thevotois of
tho West Side were led to believe in Feb
ruary last, when the ordinnnce for bond
lug the city in the sum of 00,000 to erect
two bridges camu before the electors, that
the viaduct would be built, casting their
votes iu favor of tbe bridges on the
strength that it would be supported and
Whereas, The city councils have allowed
to lie dormant for soveral months an or
dinance providing for the construction of
the viaduct when tho decision of court--which
is given as one strong reason for the
delay was to the effect that tho ordinance
would only have to be passed, but the
viaduct not necessarily built before the
uppointmont of viewers, and
MATTER OF DAMAGES.
Whoreas, The qaeotion of daraajes has
arisen iu connection with the building of
the proposed viaduct to such an extent that
it is given as another great stumbling
block to tho taking of tho necessary stops;
therefore be it
Rosolved, That we, the citizens of the
West Side, in public meeting assembled,
now Aug. 27, 18W, believing that the dam
age cry has been exaggerated as the city
proposes to occupy only a part or its own
street, aud feeling that such a large sec
tion of the oity should not be trifled with
in a matter which concerns the safety of
her citizens as well as tbe development
aud growth of her part of the city, do
hereby call upon the city councils to take
up for action the ordinance providing for
the viaduct which now lies in tho select
council's hands, and be it further
ltesolved, That in view of the urgent
needs and the promises made to her West
Side citizens during the bridge campaign
that the West Side should hnve her via
duct, we urge upon councils the necessity
of keeping fuith with the citizens by doing
nil that lays iu tbeir power to build tho
tbe viaduct, the result of which can ouly
be its construction. Be it also
Resolved, That in order that the coun
cils mny be cognizant of the action of this
mooting, this preamble and resolution be
printed iu the daily papors and copios for
warded to both branches of the city coun
cils, lie it
ltesolved, Further that this meeting
recommend the formulating and circulat
ing of the petitions addressed to the city
couucils expressing our needs for the via
duct and our demands for our rights.
Messrs. Farr, Powderly, E. E. Clark,
J. J. Davies and T. J. Price were ap
pointed a committee to wait upon the
special conncilmanlo committee which
has the viaduct under consideration
and present the resolutions.
Another resolution, presented by
Mr. Farr, protesting against the usage
for other purposes of the $10,000 ap
propriated for the viadnet was adopted,
SPECIAL SESSION OF COUNCILS.
Both Granchai W ill Sleet to Transaot
Owing to the fact that next Thurs
day will be the fifth Thursday of the
month no council meeting was sched
uled, but as there is a big rush of busi
ness on band, both branches of council
Imve arranged for meetings that eve
ning. The common counoil'i session will be
en ndjourned one. Its principal work
will be the passage of the bridge ordi
nances on final reading. Inasmuch as
those measures were amended in com
mon council, select council will again
have to act upon them. Another im
portant reason for the special session of
select council is that they will have to
act before Sept. 1 on tbe ordioanoe ex
tending tho time for the collection of
city and city special taxes until Jan, 1,

Failure of the Pottsvllla Company Will
Not Afftot Contracts Hare.
The failure of the Pottsville Iron and
Steel company was ouly a little family
affair aud will not interfere with tbe
work which that company has in hand
in this city.
Owing to the fact that three of the
grandest improvements contemplated
in this oity, tho 10-story Hears' build
ing, the Hotel Jerinyn and the Nay
Aug bridge, which is the only key to
tho Boulevard, depended for their early
completion upon the company, there
was considerable talk and many con
juctives occasioned by tho announce
ment of their failure.
W. A. Malany, foreman of the com
pany, yesterday started work on each
of tbe three contracts. A boiler and
engine were put In plaoe at the Mears'
building and a gang of men were sent
to Nuy Aug to unload a car of the
bridge iron which arrived yesterday.
Mr. Malany said all three jobs will
be pushed to a hasty completion. They
can work day and night it necessary.
Colonel Sahoonmaker says he has as
snranots that the bridge will be com

STABBED IN THE FACE.
During a Fight Her Husband Used a
Knife on Her.
John Gaffney and his wife, Ann, yos
terday engaged in one of thsir custom
ary fights, during the course of which
the woman was stabbed in the face by
her huBband. The knife struck her on
the left cheek making a gash which re
quired three stitches to close.
With her clothes covered with blood
she went to Alderman Fitziimmons'
office to have her husband arrested.
The alderman issued the warrant and
also directed that Mrs. Gaffney be
