In the absence of President Nu.i'on,
Mt. Reap was chosen as chairman .it
Monday night' 1 meeting of council.
Many Important matters came up for
consideration. The Set anion Railway
company, the Olyphant Waler com
pany and the Sewer company came In
for their shate of attention. A laige
number of bills were passed for pay
ment, while several were held up for
Investigation. Among the latter was
a bill fiom the Olyphant Wnter com
pany for $23 for water used at the
public fountain. It was the opinion
of the councllmen that when the foun
tain was erected that the comuanv
agieed to furnish the water gratis.
The matter was refeued to a com
mittee to look tho tacts up Council
thought they weie being oveieh.uged
for fuel at the electric plant, nnd a
bill of $&3 fiom the Delaware and
Hudi-011 company was also laid aside.
Hoteikeeper Glllnskl complained to
council that he was being ovetchaiged
for light. Tho collector leplled that
he only chaiged Mi. Glllnskl with the
number of lights as teporled to him
by Inspector Dardls, In order to fa
cilitate matters In the futuie a gilev
ance committee was appointed at tho
suggestion of Mr. Van Sickle, it will
be their duty to hear all complaints
ot this char-actor, Instead of bringing
them befoie the council. The piesi
dent appointed the membeis of the
light committee, togethei witli the col
lector. Tho special committee lepoit
ed having gone over the auditors' ie
poit, nnd submitted their statement.
It was accepted. The electric, light
committee repotted that the affairs at
the electric plant were tun rather
loosely, and that some of the employes
were neglecting their duties. A heat
ed discussion followed. Some of the
members claimed that Unglnoer Dearie
was negligent, while others contended
that Klectilclnn Dardls was equally
at fault. It was llnally decided to
have the two emplojes appear before
a special session on Thuisday night to
investigate the thaiges Mr. Gallagher
thought it was high tlmo that the
railway company &hould be biouglit
to tenns. "When the pave was laid,"
he said, "their first act was to temove
their tracks from the stuiftt to evade
payment of their poitlon of the pavn.
Now, when we have taxed their poles
und vvliu they have also taken those
away from the central poitlon of the
borough, and I think we should .iFcer
taln our lightB In the matter." A
motion wus passed that tho borough
solicitor look the matter up. Mr. Gal
loglier tilbo called attention to what
ho called the "outrageous" water rates
