? NOTJJE HELD
COMMISSIONERS SAY TIME IS
Declare They Cannot Get the Bal
lots Printed and the Arrange
ments for Tuesday's Election Per
fected In Time If Not Held Tues
day the Election May Be Post
poned for an Indefinite Period It
Will Be Difficult to Get Common
Branch of Councils Together.
It would appear ns If the special
councllmanlc elections In eight of the
wards of tho city, which were to have
been held on next Tuesday, would have
to lie postponed. That's what the
'county commissioners say, nnd as they
are the ones who control the printing
of,' the ballots, they should know.
Tho commissioners served notice on
Mayor Mali- yesterday morning thnt
they would not he able to have the bal
lots printed In lime for nn election on
Tuesday next, on account of the fact
that the primaries are not to he held
The mayor didn't take kindly to the
.proposition at. first, and Informed the
commissioners that. In his opinion, I hey
would have plenty of time to Ret tho
ballots printed. They replied In most
emphatic terms that they would not,
and the mayor accordingly directed
'City Clerk Liivcllc to send out a call
for a special meeting of the select coun
cil for tonight, tie also directed Clerk
l.ynelt, of the common council, to send
out. nolli.es to all the remaining mem
bers of that branch, lcquestlng them

Ins. ABOCT SPKCIAL KLKCTIONS.
The hiwgovornlng the holding of spe
cial elections to nil eouncllmanlc va
cancies prescribes that each council
.hall fix the lime for holding such spe
cial elections. This time has ulreudv
been fixed for nexlTuesduy, and If It
is necessary to postpone It, the now
Male, as well, will have to he fixed by
councils. This is tho reason for the
calling of a special meeting: of select
fur tonight and for the reo.uest that
every member of tho common branch
be present at tonight's meeting.
The select council will probably meet
tonight, but it's dollars to doughnuts
that the common council won't. There
will probably be eight members of
the common branch present, but the
remaining live will undoubtedly bo ab
sent. This is because the common
branch, since the resignation of the
eight members last Thursday nisht,
consists of eight Democrats and five
There is at present no chairman.
Chairman Grlfllths having been one of
the members who resigned. If a meet
ing Is held tonight the llrst thing which
would have to be done would be to
elect a chairman. This is just what the
Democrats want, and Just what the Re
publicans don't want. The Democrats
want to elect Councllmnn Calpin as
chairman, and they could do it If a
meeting was held.
STATUS OP COUNCILS.
Me fore tho resignations of tho eight
'cuuucllmcn were received the Demo
crats had a majority of one, but the
Republicans believe that at the coming
election they have a pretty good chance
of making this n Republican majority
of one, the Fourteenth ward being de
batable ground. For this reason they
don't want a chairman chosen until
alter the new members are elected.
The election of a Democratic chair
'man at this time would permit the con
trol of the estimates committee by that
party. Four of the members of that
committee were among; those who re
'Slgned, and Luther Keller is now the
only Republican and the only member
remaining. This is, perhaps, the most
important committee in councils.
There is no question but that at least
three of the live Republican members
will remain away tonight to prevent a
iiuorum being present.
' If tho county commissioners remain
firm in the stand they have taken and
if the Republican members insist on
staying uway from meetings, it would
seem as ir the holding ofi the special
elections could be put off Indelinltely.
MR. MORRIS' STATEMENT.
County Commissioner John. C. Mor
tis was last night seen by a Tribune
man regarding the matter, and declared
that It was an impossibility to have
this ballots properly certified, the elec
tion officers furnished with all supplies,
ilu hiillot boxes put In, and other ar
rangements made, in time to hold the
general election Tuesday. Ho also said
that these general elections were tho
source of great expense to the county,
and that ho thought It would be a good
Idea to wait and see If any other resig
nations be tendered before holding

he effected a flve-yoar contract with
the American Ice company for a mini

This is the largest ice supply con
tract ever executed in Pennsylvania,

suggestion of tho ice which will be
really used. Lake Lodore, Lake Keenc
and Elk lake constitute the company'.-,
source of supply. They have a. com
bined area of between seven and eight
hundred acres, and can easily furnish
from one to two million tons of Ice a
The company's property is the only
one near enough New York and Phila
delphia, outside of the lakes on the
Pocono that could be depended upon
for a sure and sufllelent supply of Ice
by the metropolitan company.
The Lake Lodore company Is now
constructing at Keene lake, a l."x."il7
feet ice house, which will cover two
acres, and be capable of holding 50,000
tons of ice. Four such structures will
be built by the company. Charles

Scranton, Pa.; Dee. 11. 1!)00.
IMIIor of The Trlliniic.
Sir: Your request for my views on
tho udvlsabillty of the city entetlng
second-class cities under laws as they
now exist finds me In no uncertain
state of mind. I nin emphatically op
posed to It. I consider It would be
fraught with gi-uvo danger to the peo
ple, especially those who pay our
Too often, tho swelling Idea of ex
pansion, "Greater Scranton," otc,
leads peoplu to conclusions that In
cooler moments they would be ap
palled at. Tho idea of "room to ex
pand," as put by one of your commun
icants. Is erroneous. We can expand
lust as well out of us In second-class
cities. The question of taxation is
very serious. The burden is placed on
business. Today there are vacant
stores on all out- streets. What could
we expect if the system of taxation
iM applied In second-class cities were
to be put in force? Today tho rela
tions of landlord and tenant as re
gards rentals have reached reasons be
yond which we cannot go without dis
aster to both, which would mean dis
aster to business.
The new enterprises which we want
don't ask "Are you a second-class
city," but they want to know about
taxes, city affairs, etc. They don't
care a rap about second-class cities.
Then, consider the school board
question, with ward boards and a een- j
tral board, with each ward board
levying taxes and right to Issue bonds.
Consider the power of an unwieldy
body as our councils would bo In
stead of a centralized authority, as is
conceded the best by all thinking men
where responsibility is undivided and
easy to place.
Pittsburg is one of the wealthiest
cities In our country: crowded with
great' iron industries and splendid
buildings. Compare it with our city,
where our business buildings are con
fined to two or three streets, and im-
agino the results of the Increased bur
dens. So far as amendments to existing
second-class city laws are concerned,
there would be no hope except where
Fllnn, Magee & Co. would consider It
to their advantage. The easiest way
would be to increase the population
limit of third-class cities. It would
barm no city, and ought to encounter
little opposition. The pride that im
pels one to be able to say, "Wo are
ir. the same class as Pittsburg," Is a
false one, and, to my mind, dunger
ous. CAPTAIN DOLPH B. ATHERTON.
Seeielar.v of tho Suanloii Hoard of Tr.iilc.
Editor of The Tribune.
Sir: In reply to yours of Dec. in.
asking for suggestions or opinions on
second-class city problem, I beg to
say that I am not conversant enough
with the present charter laws of Pitts
burgh and Allegheny to speak intelli
gently as to their adaptation to the
city of Scranton.
It is difficult, however, after all that
has been said on the subject, to recon
cile ourselves to the idea of Scran
ton remaining a city of the third
class and being governed by law's
adapted to cities the size cf Plttston,
Carbondule and other small munici
palities throughout the state. I believe
that a determined effort upon the part
of our citizens would result in the
passage of a suitable law that woul'l
be eminently satisfactory to both
Scranton, Pittsburgh and Allegheny.
At best the present third-class city
laws are as much too small for Scran
ton the pri(?esmt second-class city
laws are too largo, and T believe that
we can bettei' adapt ourselves to ttu
larger garment than to the smaller.
The chamber of commerce of Pitts
burgh has nfTlclnlly announced its
willingness to confer with the Scran
ton board of tiado relative to an ad
Iustinent of present lawn, which is an
indication that It is possible to secure,
at the hands of the coming legislature,
a suitable law governing cities of the

Sir: By all means, we should pro
gress and become a city of the second
class. To remain in the third class
is to lag. and tho people of Scranton
have never ibeen lagganls. Obviously,
theru are some objections to tho ad
vancement, and, likewise, there are
more objections to standing still, To

DOGS BEING POISONED.
Systematic Effort Being Made to Rid
Dalton of Its Canines.
The following has been sent to The
Tribune by H. D. Swarts, of Dalton,
with a request that It bo published:
"Within the past three weeks, there
have been thirteen dogs poisoned In
this little village, and I think It is high
time a halt was called to this fiendish
work. W. I Brow'er's pointer dog was
the first to meet death In this way. Mr.
B rower valued his dog at one hundred
dollars. The next two dogs to meet this
same fate belonged to Gus Allen, man
ager of the Union News company,
Scranton. Then Mr. Smith's two shep
herd dogs. Mr. Lewis, the blacksmith,
and Mr. Moxley, the liveryman, each
lost a dog. Mr. John L. Swarts owned
a fox hound and a Gordon setter: both
were poisoned. Tonight the writer re
turns home and finds his English sot
tor has been treated likewise.
"There are several gangs of chicken
thieves located within a shor.t distance
of this village, and the Indications point
strongly in their direction, as It. Is nec
essary to get these dogs out of the way
In order to make their nightly raids In
a more successful way. A few nights
ago they visited the henneries of Mr.
Fred Snyder and Fred Palmer and,
John L. Swarts and took nearly all the
chickens they possessed. If these men
who are poisoning- these dogs could
only see them In the awful agony they
suffer before death, I am satisfied they
would never poison another dog. If the
party or parties who have been doing
tills poisoning can be located, one hun
dred dollars reward will be given.
"Every family who has a flock of
chickens have armed themselves with
a aouDie-oarrel snotgun ana tney are,
loaded w)th buckshot. They have sworn
vengeance on tho thieves', If caught.
They have fully made up their minds
that they would not call to them to
surrender, but would shoot botli loads
of buckshot into their bodies."
