Will II l sod for Illuminating the New
Hotel Jormvn.
An electric plant with a capacity of
i.4(Mi lights of sixteen candle power has
been Installed In the cellar of the Hotel
Jermyn. The engines and dynamos
were started yesterday afternoon for
the first time and worked perfectly.
Many of the Incandescent lights on the
first und second floors were turned on
nnd something of the beauty that the
Interior o.f the building will possess
v Intn wntpteted was disclosed.
The. electric plant In the Jermyn I
the finest ever Installed In a building
in this vicinity and was put in by the
Western F.lectrlc company, of New
York, for the contractors, the Scranton
Supply nnd Hardware company of this
city, who are the representatives of the
Western company In this vicinity. The
plant entire cost Mr. Jermyn In the
neighborhood of $22,000.
There are two dynamos run by .two
125-horse power engines manufactured
by the Weston Engine company of
Painted Post, N. Y. The power for
these is supplied by steam taken from
the regular boilers of the hotel. A
shuft from the engine runs the dynamo
doing away entirely with belts. There
Is no connection whatever between the
two dynamos and they can be run to
gether or separate as the demand for
light muy require.
When both are running they furnish
enough of light to illuminate every cor
ner of the Immense hotel from cellar
to roof. The dynamos are the perfec
tion of a recent Idea and are spui kless.
They accommodate themselves auto
matically to the requirements placed
tipon.tlicm be it one light or twelve
hundred. They have curbon brushes
where ordinarily copper is used. Hack
of the dynamo Is a huge switch board
which enables the engineer to control
the current all through the building.
Switch bourUs fur the same purpose
are located In the olllce und In other
places iu the building.
In tlie hotel there Is over eight miles
of copper wire for currying the current
for the Incandescent lights. It Is ulll
cased in iron tubing absolutely pre
venting damage by. lire from u broken
wire. Throughout' the building the
greatest cure bus been tuken in plucitig
und safeguarding the electric wire,
lb-sides tlie eight miles of wire used in
tin electric light wiring twelve miles
were required in placing the annuncia
tors in ull the rooms of the hotel. A
novel feuture or the unniiliciutor wil ing
Is that '. any time u telephone is re
quired In any room In the hotel the
uniiuuciator button cun be taken off
and u telephone attached.
This wire Is then mude a part of the
Centrul Pennsylvania company's tele
phone system und the guest sitting; in
bis room cun tulk either over the local
or long distance wires. This is u con
venience thut is provided for in only a
few hotels of, the, country.
The urrangenrPnt of the Incandescent
light In the lobbey und dining rooms Is
unique and pretty. It was suggested
by K. S. Keerer und J. II. Mpain, the
representatives of the Western Elec
tric; company. The lutter has hud en
tire charge of putting the plunt In the
hotel. F. W. Bleckley and E. H. Simp

Action Taken by the Select Council
Kefiurding It.
Contained tho Names of Many Prorol
at Citizens, but Was Not Pcwer ,
ful Enough to Clear tho
' Road for tho Portico. '
The Frothtngham portico was the all
Important topic in councils last night.
Such lobbying as the friends and ene
mies of the project, or rather projection,
engaged in before and during the ses
sions has not been witnessed since the'
days of the Vulley Passenger ordi
nance.. While Clerk Ijivelle was read
ing; the minutes of select council for
the last four meetings tho members
gathered In groups und argued the
question pro and con or listened to ar
guments of those who were favoring
or tkrhttng It. In common council it
wasTlie same way.
All other matters were subordinated
to the portico. Even the announce
ment that Mr. Hlckey intended to do
penance for his speech of the previous
meeting, by moving to reconsider the
amendment depriving the Albright li
brary of a part of its uppropiiutiun to
furnish electric lights for tlie Nine
teenth ward, did not succeed In dis
tracting attention from the portico, for
even u little while.
The portico wus over und ubove
everything In the matter of uttention
but It lucked the neVessury eleven 1.11
lur und down It cuene. IU enemies
got In their work before the meeting .
begun and no amount of preaching
could turn the tide. Mr. Duir Intro

Kiothlngham the desired privilege and

But the prayers jf all these good cit
izens availed not. Tho resolution had
not fuirly reached the chairman's
hands after being read by the clerk
before Mr. Lansing objected to Its con
sideration arguing thut it was nut of
order Inasmuch as It conflicted with an
ordinance and It Is irregular und Illegal
to repeal an ordinance or1 part of an
ordinance with a resolution. The or
dinance was called for and Mr. Lansing
read the following clause:
The erection or location of any building
or purt of building, or the continuation of
any building upon any street, highway or
public place, or the erection of any struc
ture obscuring the prospect between the
Inside or sidewalk line, lawfully eslali
lishd, and the public street Is declared
to be an act of public nuisance of the lint
Thereupon Chairman Westpfahl de
cided that the point was well taken und
declared the resolution out of order. Mr.
McCann said he didn't think that the
portico would be uny more of n nuis
ance than ave telegraph poles, and
surely no more of An obstruction. Mr.
Coyne moved to grant the privilege of
the floor to Milton W. Lowry, attorney
for Mr. Frothlngham. Mr. Westpfnjil
was about to put the motion when Col
onel Sanderson and Mr. Chittenden
simultaneously objected on the grounds
that there was nothing beiore the
house. Chairman Westpfahl, without
going deeply into the merits of the case,
refused to give the petitioning citizen
the privilege of addressing the coun
cils. Mr. McCunn took a copy of tho
resolution und wus ubotit to have It In
troduced In the lower branch, when the
commoners, who werein u hurry to get
to the caucus, adjourned.
A poll of the select council showed
that sentiment wus equally divided on
tlie Justice of Mr. Frothlngham's plea.
Hud It come to a bullot the vote would
have stood us follows:
For Ko:ts, Finn, Kelly, Thomas, Will
lams, .McC,hI!!i, Fellows, Coyne, l.alier- IM.
AhuIiisI Buche, Chittenden, Wagner,

' To a Tribune repot tor after tlie uctlon
of councils Mr. Frothingliaiii sulil: "I
will build the arcade out tn the very
edge of the building lino. , That will
leave u sidewalk of Just olgi.feet six
inches. Then I will build the cornice
out over the sldewulk. and await de
velopments. am not merely suyfug
thut I'll do this. It will be done and
they have no law to stop me." No
steps will bo taken in the mutter for
u day or so. Street Commissioner Kins
ley will consult with the mayor be
foie tearing down th portico.
Colonel Sanderson fir the judiciary
committee, j-enorted favorable on the
award of the viewers appointed lo as
sess the damages for the widening of
Robinson street, und tho award wus ac
cepted by both councils. An ordinance
establishing the grade of Kynoii street
was favorably reported by. the streets
and bridges commit too and passed on
two readings. Tho scwern opd drains
committee's recomniendution that the
contract for constructing the lateral
sewer on Colfax nveuue be awarded to
Oiler Jennings for $1.ko per lineal
foot wus adopted by both branches.'
The resolution permitting the Vulley
Pussonger company to extend its tracks
along Ninth street came over from
common council and wus referred to
the railway committee with instruc
tions to look into tho advisability of
recommending, a different route to the
one the company proposes to follow.
Mr. Lance complained that Swctland
street Is too narrow to accommodate ve
hicular trartie if tracks are laid there,
and also that the space at the Inter
section of Ninth and Swetland streets
is too confined to permit of a curve
being laid there. He suggested that
the Traction company should run Its
lino down Franklin avenue, across Lin
den street bridge and up Swetland
street; and that for the privilege of
crossing the bridge the-enmpany shall
contribute $10.nJ0 for widening Swet
land street. The chair advised the com
mittee to take cognizance of Mr.
La tier's remarks. .
Mr. Lauer followed this up with a res
olution declaring nun and void the
Traction company's franchise on West
Lackawanna avenue between Ninth
street and Main avenue and directing
the company to tear up Its tracks Inas
much as It has made no use of them
for over a year and shows no Inclina
tion to do so. The resolution was re
ferred to the railway committee.
A resolution directing, tho city con
troller not to draw warrants for Flynn
& O'lloro, contractors for grading Lu
zerne street until such time as the la
bor claim for $1(1.02 of Anthony Mc Hugh
be satisfied, was approved.
The following ordinances passed first
and second readings: Providing for the
erection of the new Nay Aug Engine
house; levying general ' and special
taxes for the year 189$; providing for
an electric light on the corner of Four
teenth and Academy streets; providing
for the construction of a lateral sewer
on Webster avenue In the Tenth ward.
Doesn't Want to Uo on Record as Bolng
Against, tho Library.
Common council last night went Into
a committee of the whole at the request
of Mr. Hlckey and killed the amend
ment made to the appropriation ordin
ance at tho last meeting by the pro
visions of which the library appropria
tion would have suffeted to the extent
of about SUM) to provide electric lights
for the Nineteenth wurd and the like.
Mr. Hlckey suld that notwithstanding
his assertions of lust -Thursday night,
he does not really consider the library
to be a big white clephunt or tn fact a
small ordinary kind of an elephant. He
Is In fuvor of education and everything
that tends In thut direction, and ul
though he did not think to mention it,
his constituents und friends both per
sonal und political ure also in fuvor of
tin library und uguinst hearing it re
ferred to in zoologlcul terms.
The resolution lo inquire Into the
feasibility of insuring the city treasur
er's bondsmen ut the city's expense wus
put peacefully to sleep by having It re
ferred to some old committee or unother
when it came over from select coun
cil. Tin commoners or a goodly part
of till iu didn't understand the meusure
and us they feared that it wus loaded
they gave it its quietus, u pluce In one
of those ready made sarcophagi such
as the Judlclury, finance or treasurer's
accounts' committees.
Another communication from the
Scranton Illuminating Heat and Power
company culling uttention to means
for curtailing tho expense of electric
lighting In the city buildings wus rend
und referred to committee. While this
subject was on a resolution was Intro
duced callins on the city solicitor for
an opinion as to whether or not the
electric light company, which agreed
In consideration of its franchise, to
light the city buildings free is not still
bound by that contract inasmuch as
the ordinance containing tlie agree
ment was repealed by a resolution
which Is clearly against the luw.
A resolution directing the city engi
neer to glye grades for all streets in the
Fifteenth ward was Introduced by Mr.
Oliver and agreed to. An ordinance
vacating the East mountain road In the
Twelfth ward and unother creating the
office of second assistant city engineer
passed third and final reading.

Altogether Improbable.
The Democrats who will sit in the
next common- council convened last
night at the Globe hotel and selected
P. J. Nealls for the presidency and
John P. Mahon for the clerkship. The
1 chairmanship contest was virtually a
warn-over, dui a sun ngm was wageu

Thirteen vhtes were cast at each bal
lot, showing that every Democrat and
one Independent was present. The In

J. J. Orler, the present chairman,
who defeated J. J. Nealls lust year, and
who wus also a candidate this year, did
not allow his name to ge before tho
