BOARD OF TRADE
WILL NOT GIVE UP
Secretary Atherton Says That It Will
Direct the Preparation of a Com
plete New Second Class Act.
Sectetary V. M. Atherton, of the
board of trade, who was one of the
delegates from that body sent to Pitts
burg to confer regarding second class
city legislation, btated emphatically
to a Tribune man yesteiday that the
board had no Intention whatever of
abandoning the Idea and leaving It
entirely to the councllmanle commit
tee. "This committee," said he, "will di
rect Attorney James H. Toney, who
was oilglnally a member ot It, to pre
pare a general act governing cities of
the second class and this act will be
Introduced In the leglslatute. Let the
councllmanle committee lnttoduce Its
amendatoty act In one branch of the
legislature and we'll Introduce our act
In the other branch. The mote the bet
ter. If one net falls of passage the oth
er may get through. You can say that
we're not going to back out ot this
thing at all."
Select Councilman Chat lea I J. Chit
tenden, who is the chairman of the
councllmanle committee, stated yester
day to a Tribune man that the com
mittee would use oveiy effort possible
at tonlght'M meeting to dlssttudo tin;
members of the board of ttade com
mittee, who have been Invited to at
tend, fiom having any separate act
prepared and Intioduced In the loglsla
tuie. "Goodness knows," said he, "the situ
ation is complicated enough without
having this city go down to Hart Is
burg with two acts. Theie Is, to my
mind. Just about one chance In a thous
and for us to secure the paasace of
our few umendments without trying
to put thiough a whole act.
"Why, all 1 would favor would ln
to go down there with just that one
amendment giving the mayor power
to appoint the heads of the executive
departments. I'd Just us soon have the
other amendments dropped. Personal
ly, I don't think we'll be able to get
even that thtough. I am only lending
my assistance to this movement be
cause I believe It Is my duty to do so.
I don't think the people of this state
want good government, and I think It
will be along near the mlllenliim when
we get It."

MAYOR MOXR SIGNED THE ORDI
It Establishes a Uniform Price to Be
Paid for Water and is to Qo Into
Effect on April 1 Rates Fixed Are
About One-Half Those Now
Charged The Legality of the Or
dinance Will Undoubtedly Be Test
ed in the Courts and May Be Car
ried to United States Coutt.
The ordinance establishing fixed rates
to be charged for water on nnd nfttn
April 1 is now a law. Mayor Molr
signed it yesterday afternoon in the
presence of a Tribune man, Haying as
be did so: "Now we're ready for a fight
on this question."
There Is hurdly any question that
there will be a fight over the legality
of the oidlnance nnd that It will be
hotly contested. Lawyers say It will
be finished in the United States su
The ordinance establishes water
rates which may be said to average
about one-half those which nre now
charged by the Seianton Gas and Wat
er company. That corporation refused
to giant the board of trade's request
to i educe Its meter rate to manufact
uieis and, as tho ordinance establishes
a meter rate almost as low as the one
requested by the board of trade, It is
to be expected that It will contest the
city's right to fix certain lates.
The oiUlnanco contains a penalty
clause piovidlng that "any person, firm
or corporation" violating Its provisions
shall be liable to a fine of $30 for each
and every offense, to be rccoveied In
an action of assumpsit befoie the may
or or any alderman In the city.
THK PROBABLI COUnSU.
On und after April 1 If the company
refuses to comply with the ptovislons
of the ordinance some cltbon will go
before the major or an alderman,
backed by the city's legal department,
and bring such nn action of assumpsit.
The company will then undoubtedly
appeal the case to the local courts nnd
if a decision unfa vol able to Its inter
ests Is rendered It may be expected to
take the case to the supieme court and
fiom that tribunal to the United
States supremo court. If necessary.
The city, Mayor Molr says, will cany
the matter aa far as the Supreme court
of the state, in case tho local court
ihould decide that a municipality has
not the right to establish uniform
water rates. The company could take
the case to the United States Supieme
court, because the foutteenth amend
ment of tho Fedeial constitution Is in
volved. This movides that no Mate .shall
make or enforce any laws -which shall
"deprive any person of life, liberty or
piopeity." it will be probably con
tended by the company, if the case
ever teaches the highest judicial tri
bunal In the country, that to fit by
law the price to be charged for a com
modity is to deprive In a. certain sense
the person selling that commodity of
their propel ty.
City Solicitor Vosburg and a number
of other leading lawyers of this city,
including ex-City Solicitor I. H. Burns,
hold that municipalities have a right
to rcgulato the price of commodities
dealt In by quasi-public corporations,
such as wuter companies, whose Inter
ests are so closely allied with the In
tel ests of the public at large. In his
opinion on the water question, sent to
councils over a, year ago, Mr. Vosburg
quoted a United States Supieme couit
decision which he believes settles clear
ly that cities can establish a certain
leasonable price to be charged for
The water ordinance, which was in
troduced In councils during the fiscal
year ot 1899-1900 by Councilman Mel
vln, was allowed to die a. peaceful
death, never being reported from com
mittee In common council. This year
the measure was ie-lntroduced, with
numerous changes, by Councilman
Costello, of the Third ward, who has
made a vigorous fight for Its passage.
The full text of the ordinance Just
signed by the major Is as follows:

THE KATES DIFFER.
The piesent lates of the company
differ gieatly from the lates fixed by
the oidlnance. The price for a slnglo
family Is the same, but l'or each addi
tional family In a single houre It !s
6 Instead of 14, as In the ordlnanc
The price for bath tubs Is now t-i,
Instead of the tl.30 piovided In the
oidlnance, and the price for water
closets In pilvate houses Is now Si
each, Instead of $1.2i ns fixed by tho
ordinance. For lawn or hose connec
tions, ft! Is now chaiged. Instead ot
the late of Jl estiblMied by the or
dinance. The meter lates nt present charged
aie as follows: For dally aveiage of
10,000 gallons or Ies. 20 cents per
1,000; from 10,000 to 20,000 gallons, IT.
cents per 1,000: from 20,000 to 30,000
gallons, 10 cents per 1,000; from 30,000
to fiO.OOO gallons, S rents per 1,000; for
dally nvernge of .".0,000 or over, 6 cents
The greatest "avlng In meter late,
If the new ordinance goes Into effect,
will be to the small consumer, such
as -the saloon keeper, hotel man und
met chant, who use less than 10,000
gallons per day. It will mean a sav
ing of just one-half. They now pay
twenty cents per 1,000, while the ordi
nance fllxes n late of 10 cent.
If the ordinance Is ever declared
legal and If the citj Irs placed In a
position wiiote it can enfoice Its pro
visions, the company can be expected
to continue Its meter system lionise.
In all such places ns those mentioned
above, lather than chnrge according
to the other fixed schedule. That
method would mean In the majority
of cases a i eduction of two-thirds.
The ordinance gives the company the
right to put In a meter wherever It

of the councllmen during the progress

adjudication of such a quetlon was

If the company recalled the trans
