Proposition from the Company.

city of Soranton. the common coun
cil concurring, that the city treasurer

2..h .,-0 ..11 incinw of a long ana
animated discussion on the West Mar
ket street dilemma in seieci
The matter was destined to come 1 up
at all events, but It received a fitting
but unexpected introduction m v-...-municatlon
fxm the Turn '.Ike people,
through their secretary. W. W. Wat
son? The gist of t was that inasmuch
as the city was seemingly of the opin
ion that it would reoulrt; an Immense
expenditure or money iu .......

ns en evidence of their Intention to
do the work in a gouu raumwr,
covenant to assume all liability for any
oossilile damages mat iiukhi
fmm the road not being kept In n good
repair. It further proposed that If at
any time the city desired to revert to
the present existent compact, the com
pany would be willing to accede to the
city's wishes. 1
Before any action was taken on the
communication. Mr. Manley culled for
the reading of the opinion of S. H.
Price.' who was the city's attorney In
the case, and who held that If the case
ivnft annealed to the Supreme court the
award against the city wouttl be strick
en off and the city released from Its
contract, all of which v.'hh set forth
in nrvvlniis Issue of The Trlnune.
When the oiinlon. containing the
ahove contention had been read, Mr.
Manley commenced to deplore tne lact
that It hed not been read at the time
It was nresented, saying that If coun
cils had not passed It over so care
lessly the city would not be in its re
grettable plight. In a somewhat vin
dictive tone Mr. Manjey declared for
war, advising that tne city pay u
monev to the Turnpike company or
heed to their communications.
Mr. Chittenden ativiseu mat tne mi'
est nrnnnsitlon of the company be re
ferred to the judiciary committee for
the purpose of at least securing an op
tion on their offer so that in case the
court should decide against
the city there would be something to
fall back on, which no doubt would be
found to be desirable. He would also
have the committee ascertain If the
eltv would be expected to pay $1,500 In
addition to the $2,500 for the first year
if the proposition was acceptea.
But Mr. Manley had no deBire to have
any negotiations at all with the com
nanv. He would throw their proposi
tions and claims and hills to the four
winds, drop all parleying and have a
good old-fashioned auction.
Mr. Roche agreed with Mr. Chltten
den that councils adopt both plans-
entertain the proposition and follow out
Mr. Manley's belligerent views, this
was done by sending the turnpike com
nanv's communication to the judiciary
committee and by adopting the Manley
resolution reproduced in the first para
The nerinatetlc streets and bridges
committee, after a day's outing on the
South Side, came in with three recom
mendations in relation to Improve
ments-contemplated there. In the mat
ter of the removal of the Delaware ana
Hudson depot platform at Cherry street
the committee approved of Superin
tendent C. R. Manville s suggestion
that the oblique road about 100 feet
below Cherry street be closed If Cherry
street is to be opened and thus avoid
two grade crossings near each other,
and promised that no damages shall be
Incurred by the city. Mr. Roche want
ed thP committee to draft an ordinance
embodying these recommendations, but
Mr. Chittenden advised that this be
held In abeyenoe until the Judiciary
committee could netermlne the exact
legal status of affairs, and his Idea pre
Another matter which the committee
looked into was the proposes, extension
of tne pipe drain which empties on
Cherry street, so as to carry the water
to the river. This pine drain was built
some years ago at the expense of the
city. It carries the water from the hill
above and empties it on Cherry street.
The property holders on that thorough
fare complain that this water Is damag
ing the street and their properties and
ask that the city adopt measures to
relieve thein. Mr. Coyne, selectman
from the Twentieth ward, proposed an
extension of the pipe drain to the river
and it was on this proposition that the
committee Journeyed thither yester
day. The recommmendation of the
committee was that no action be taken
In the matter until the property hold
ers grade Cherry street, and their re
ommendatlon was adopted.
Mr. Robinson's project to compel the
Lackawanna Iron and Coal company to
open a blind alley on their Eleventh
ward plot also received a cold shoulder
from the committee, who believed that
the matter could be settled more satis
factorily by a conference between the
Interested property owners and the offi
cials of tne company and recommmend-
ed that the resolution be laid on tno
table. This was done.
The nominations of of Oscar F. Free
man for inspector of the Capouse ave
nue lateral sewer, and of Dennis Roche
for Inspector of the Washington ave
nue lateral sewer, were received from
Mayor Connell and unanimously con
firmed forthwith. . . .
The proposition of William Brlcht
and William Love to accept $1,500 In
payment for damages resulting from
the extending of the Providence sewer
through the private alley which ex
tends between their respective proper
ties, was submitted by Mayor Connell
for the consideration of councils. Mr.
Chittenden believed this to be an ex
orbitant demand and wanted to settle
the matter then and there by Ignoring
the proposition and throwing the mat
ter into court, put other counsel pre
vailed and the question was referred to
the judiciary committee.
1 1 1 terse cimcui'iiculion City Solici
tor Torrey advised the repeal of the
Seventeenth district main sewer ordi
nance. He said that during the sum
mer the assessment was made and
when It was about completed the Su
preme court. In a parallel case, handed
down a decision which threw grave
doubts on the legality of the assess
ment. The Lackawanna Iron and Coal
company tested the local courts and it
wan decided that assessments on non
abutting property are null and void.
If the ordinance is not repealed the city
will have to pay about $20,000 out of
the general treasury to make up for the
Illegal assessment levied on non-abutting
properties. The only way, Mr.
Torrey says, that a sewer can be built
there Is to plan the main sewer and
lateral sewer simultaneously and call
It all a main sewer, by which means all
properties can be made to share In the
cost. . -
x-Mr. Chittenden advised that the mat
ter be referred to the Judiciary com
mittee with a view of having that com
mittee draft an ordinance repealing the
ewer ordinance. This course was
--. The following ordinances passed first
and second reading: Providing for a
double dron harness for the General
Phtnnev Hose company, and also a
team of horse for the same company;
establishing the grade of Prescott ave
nue, from Mulberry to Olive streejj.
, , IN COMMON COUNCIL.
Trouble Between the Assessors' and
Board of Appeals Get an Airing
Common council was made adjudi
cator, last nlsht. in the contest be
tween the assessors and the board of
appeals. City Clerk Lavelle's letter
setting forth the assessors' refusal to
give uo the furniture was read and
Assessors Jones and Toos appeared to
give their side of the story.
The city clerk merely Informed coun
cil that their resolution could not be
enforced, and asked further Instruc
tions. Mr. Yoos argued that the assessors
needed the furniture, and Mr. Jones
contended that councils could not leave
them unprovided for, as the new act
does not contemplate the abolition of
the board of assessors.
In answer to Mr. Sweeney's question
as to what use the assessors had for
en olHce Mr. Yoos replied that It was
necessary to have some place to meet
with the assistant assessors.
Mr. Oliver, a member of the board of
appeals, at this juncture took occasion
to emphasize his contention that the
fight was not between the two boards,
but between the assessors and the
councils. Mr. Uattle scored the board
of appeals fur being the instigators of
all the troublo, and accused them of
trying to upset the board of asscssrs.
Then the real bone of contention was
thrown Into the part by Mr. Sweeney,
who Introduced a resolution dispensing
with the services of the assessors' clerk.
This was piomptly laid on the table
on motion of Mr. Robinson, the vote be
ing 8 to 7. Mr. Oliver, at his own re
quest, was excused from voting. Just
to show there was no hard feeling Mr.
Sweeney followed this up with an ordi
nance fixing the salary of the assessors
at $4 a day for each day employed. In
stead of $1,000 a year, as now pre
scribed, the ordinance to take effect
April 1. The furniture matter was re
ferred to t he public buildings com
mittee and salary ordinance was re
ferred to the estimates committee, and
so the affair ended.
The question of opening up Iron
street to meet the projected free turn
pike from the city line to South Ablng
ton wr.s referred to the Streets and
A communication wns rood from
Mayor Connell, City Controller Wld
niayer and City Solicitor Torrey, In
which they advised the acceptance of
the proposition of Frank Sniffer to
settle his clnlm ngalnst the city upon
payment of $371.81. Shtffer's attorney,
Mr. Rhoadeo, explained that his client
had a pood claim for .tfi.607.73. but ".rt
signed o. release while Insane. The
recommendation was ndopted!
A resolution, Introduced by Mr.
Nealls, directs the controller to with
hold payment on the warrant of K O.
Koons, the contractor who Is building
the sewer In the Fourteenth ward, un
til such time ns the claims of his labor
ers are Rettlcd. This wns adopted.
The property owners Ion Luzerne
street petitioned to have the names of
Luzerne and Fellows streets reversed
as thev were before the city engineer
changed them three years aso. The
petition wan favorably received.
There was a little flnre-un at the
end of the meeting. Mr. Robinson
wanted council to consider the resolu
tion which Mr. Manley Introduced in
select council and which had been sent
over for concurrence, but the chair
recognized Mr. Zeidler, who called up
the ordinance providing for perman"i't
men for the General Phlnney nnd Nay
Aug Engine comoanies. Mr. Kcbinson
pleked up his hat and overcoat nnd
left the room without asking to be ex
cused, thereby hrcaklnar up the quorum.
Chairman Grier became somewhat
wroth over this act of discourtesy.
and then and there repealed the privi
lege of skipping from one order of
business to the other and said that
hereafter business will go on in the
regulur order as prescribed by the
rules. He also Intimated that he
would prevent any member hereafter
from leaving the council chamber
without being excused.
An event of the greatest Importance
to Scranton theater-goers is the ap
pearance tonight of Delia Fox and her
merry opera company. 'Flour-de-Lls"
has Just closed an eight week's run at
Pnlmer's theater. New York. J.
Cheever Goodwin has written the words

Angells (who Is playing his Ilnal en
gagement with this company, as he
stars next year), Alf Wheelan, Charles
J. Campbell, Charles Dungnn, Edward

Ono of lloyt'a Sntlrcs.
"A Bunch of Keys." polished an to
date. Hoyt's best satire, still possesses
great attraction for the theater-going
public. It Is essentially an entertain.
ment for the masses, and in that draws
the patrons of farce comedy. This rat
tling farcical production bristles with
funny situations so closely following
upon each other that the audience Is in
almost a continual peal of laughter un
til the fall of the curtain. The sons.
dances and medleys, which form an im
portant item in tne play, are entirely
new nnd are nicely rendered. Miss
Ada Bothncr appears as Teddv. The
rest of the company are very evenly
balanced and contains some very clever
people. The comedy win be presented
at the Academy of Music three nights,

Prothonotary Fryor's private offlce
was the scene of a musclar contlict
yesterday afternoon between Attorney
Nathan Vidaver and Constable Jacob
S. Miller, of the Ninth ward. The tres

Miller and George Schultz was on be

Streeter, and W. J. Lewis as a board of
arbitrators. Attorney Vidaver was the
Some time ago the constable sold out
the household goods of the plain tiT at
the Instance of Geo-ge Schultz, and a
suit for damages arose. Smith alleges
thut the sale was Illegal, and he thinks
he Is entitled to recover from the de
fendants. The first hearing came up
yesterday before the arbitrators.
Calm Prcccedv'd the Storm.
Everything was proceeding along
si-.ioothly. The arbitrators had their
feet up on tables and were listening In
teny to the testimony of Constable
Miller as he was being questioned by
the plaintiff's counsel. It was the calm
that precedes the storm. The exam
ination of Miller grew more calorific
at each succeeding question and the
climax came when Attorney Vidaver
"What's the reason you tell such de
liberate lies about the matter? You
know you ere under oath and sworn to
tell the truth."
"Oh, you little Jew, you!" spoke
up the guardian of the peace.
Quick as flash Attorney Vidaver
lumped on Miller's throat and cauimt
him by the whiskers, and pulled vigor
ously. They rolled over on the lloor
and upset chairs and cuspidors In the
wrestle, but the attorney retained a
firm hold upon the hirsute appendage of
Millers' face. The scuflle was all over
In three seconds.
Attorneys Lewis and Rtreeter acted
as peacemakers and separated the
combatants. Attorney Burns' equani
mity wns not In the least disturbed; he
set still nnd smiled.
With this little Intermission over, the
case was resumed.
NOVEL CHURCH FAIR.
llclng Conducted by the Presbyterian
Congrocatlon of Green Ridge.
A novel church fair began last night
In the basement of the Green Ridge
Presbyterian church and will end to
night. It Is called a "Carnival of Na

Characteristics of the booths and the
ocstumes of the attendants. The affair
IS under the auspices of the Ladles' Aid
society of the church, of which Mrs. S.
M. Stetler Is president, and Miss Jean
Lindsay secretary. The following Is
the society's board of directors: Mrs.
Charles Klrkpntrlck. Mrs. C. H. Pond,

The general elUpct of the seven booths

peculiar Individuality. A professional
dec-irator and hla assistants did most
of the drapery work, while the arrange
ment of the Interiors shows the good
taste of the women In charge and their
asslstnnts. The Japan booth Is the
largest of r'l nnd has a large open

a plealng enVtalnment which will be
repeated tonicht. The American booth

ATTENDANCE FALLING OFF.
Slight Decrease During October in the
Number of Pspils at IMibllo Sshool.
As Is usual, the. reports of attendance
at the public sohils for October shows
a alight falling f as compared with
September, the opining month.
During October the attendance was
11,212; 4n September It was 11,4110; de
crenco, 218. The schools closed last
June with t.i attendance of 9.C48, and as
they opened with an attendance with
in a few hundred as arge as this vear,
it is to be expected that there will be
a proportionate falling off each winter,
until when June comes the attendance
will tie down below the 10,000 mark.
