THE BEAUTIFUL SNOW.
FIVE AND THREE-TENTHS
INCHES FELL YESTERDAY.
First Snow Storm of the Winter
Swept Over the City Effects
For the flist time this winter the
now king yesterday had tils innings.
Dining the greater part of the day tho
ntmosnliere was full of bits of wet,
congealed moisture, uiiluh Htuck to jriir
ments with bultdo? tenacity, nnd gavo
the city streets the wliltcd appearance
which one usually associates with nn
Ideal Cliflstmiis dny.
During the day there was a total fall
of 5 3-10 Inches, which Is about an
much of "the beautiful" as fell during
the entire winter prior to Sunday. For
the first time the merry cllnklu of the
sleleh bell was heard, nnd fast little
cutters dashed along the streets all
day. The weather ptoved a God-send
to the small boy. Little Tommies nnd
Willies seemed to sptlng from out the
Inmost depths of the earth, and anno 1
with shovels made genetous otfers to
"clean yer walks. Only ten cents,
Not only these Industrious youths but
also their more malevolently Inclined
brethren were made happy, for the
snow was good to "pack" and all day
long the weary pedestrians was forced
to grin and bear It as numerous hiiow
balls whizzed through the a!r. Dur
ing the morning tho snow interfered
considerably with trafllo on the Scran
ton Hallway company's lines, nnd It
was found necessary to reduce the ser
vice on several of the lines during tho
day, owing to the fact that the cars
could not be run on the regular sched
ule. Tho Green Ridge nnd Duntnore
Suburban and South Side lines wete
the only ones affected, and those only
during the violent storm in the morn
ing. Trafllo on the railroad lines was not
delayed to any visible extent. Train IS
from tho Buffalo illvixlon, which usual
ly reaches the Lackawanna station at
S o'clock, was delayed thirty minutes

TO LIMIT THE
THAT'S WHAT COUNCILMAN
Ho Will Introduce nn Amendment
to the Franchise Ordinance of tho
Central Rapid Transit Company
Giving tho City Power to Acquire
the Whole System of the Concern
nt tho End of Twonty Years to
Either Operate or Soil His Views
Upon tho Plan.
Select Councilman Chniles V. Chit
tenden Is going to Introduce an amend
ment to tlio ordinance granting a
franchise to tho Central Rapid Tian
lt company, when that moasuro
comes up for llrst unci second reading
on Thutsdny night, and It's safo to as
sume that Its provisions will form the
subject of much discussion nnd atgu
ment. Tho amendment which tho gentle
man ftom tho Ninth proposes, pro
vides Unit upon tho expiration cf
twenty years from the date of tha
granting of tho franchise, tho city
shall have the right, If it so desires,
to npply to court for tho appointment
of a boatd of appraisers, who shall
appraise tho value of the company's
franchise nnd also the value of Its
entire equipment, including rails, poles,
wile, power house nnd rolling stock.
The amendment further provides
that the city may then have the abso
lute right to purchase tho franchise)
and equipment fiom the company for
this appraised valuation.
Mr. Chltlonden. In outlining his ideas
to n Tilbune man last night, stated
that he believes tin adoption of such
nn amendment would mean a boon
to tho Hciunton of twenty years hence.
WHAT IT COULD DO.
"When tho city hntl acquired tho
fianchlsc," said he, "It could do ouo
or two tilings. Local conditions might
have improved to such nn extent us
to lender the operation, of tho system
by the city feasible. That would not
be possible Just now, but v.'ho knowa
what changes twonty years may bring
"If the city didn't cnie to operate
tho ystcm Itself, It could ask for bids
for the Fnle of the fianchiso and equip
ment nnd 1 feel f.uie that they could
both he hold at a great profit. Tho
same plan was iccently tiled In Cleve
land. The city, utter a number of
years, scented contiol of the fran
chises nnd equipment of tho street rail
way company, and when bids wero
nsked for, the capitalists fell over
themselves to get possession.
"They made offers of three cent
fares nnd handsome premiums nnd the
city was the gainer In every way. I
haven't the tMict figures regal ding
that sale nt hand just now, nut I ex
pect to have them soon.
"The granting of perpetual fran
chises Is nn abomination nnd the Idea
l b'.'lng discouraged In every progres
sive city in this country. An illustra
tion of what this city hns lost by the
plan Is to bo noun In the water com
pany's franchise. That corporation's
capital stock has Increased from a few
thousands to sewti.l millions of dol
lars since Its oilglnnl franchise was
granted, and tho city hasn't got a
cent out of it.
WORTH OF FRANCHISES.
"An Illustration of the worth of
sticet railway franchises in this city
Is to be found in the price paid by
tho Scranton Traction company for
tho Valley Passenger lailuuy fran
chise out Washington avenue. One
hundred thousand cold American dol
lars weio paid for it, after it had been
obtained fiom the city fiee, or almost
free of chaige.
"I held them off for three nights on
tho granting of that tranchlse and of
feied It it was put up for sale to guar
niitce that at least J.'.OOO would bo paid
for it, but I had only a few members
with me, and they rushed It through.
The people of this city have realized
what they have lost in giving away
our stieets for nothing nnd I think
public sentiment will bo strongly
against a repetition of the process.
"Tho tranchlse is at piesent of tin
know n value and I believe that for
the flist twenty years it should bo
Kt tinted to tlni company fiee, provid
ing, however, that n sccoud amend
ment which I will also Introduce, 13
adopted. This provides that In lieu of
all other taxes tho company shall pay
annually to tho city a lax of ilvo per
cent, on Its grois receipts.
"Thu pioposltlon, ns I view It, is a
fair one. The city gives tho fr.inchlso
free for twenty years and demands
that the company pay only a fair
shaio of taxes in return. At the end of
twenty years It reserves tho light to
buy back nt a fair figure und gives
the company a cluneo to again buy It
back. I shall make a vigorous fight
for the adoption of my amendment."

for sulllclcnt money to pay the salaries

a strong light for tho adoption of these
The chief believes that tho forty
live patrolmen who comprise, the pres
ent force nnd utterly and entirely In
adequate to cope with conditions In
this city, with its population of 102.
02C nnd its nineteen square miles of
territory. Ho believes that Instead
of forty-five men there should be one
bundled In tho force, but he has only
asked for ten, the same number he
nsked for last year and the same,
number which the estimates committee
at that time eradicated with neat
ness and dispatch.
The chief ia going to explain to the
members of the committee this year

of one lono man. ,
Chief Robllng believes that If the

that Is, If theie were half a dozen,
Instead of only two men assigned to

THREE HUNDRED AND FIFTY
HANDS IDLE AT MINOOKA.
The Simpson Silk Company Volun
tarily Closed Down Yesteiday
Noon Today Mniks a Crisis in
Strike ns the Wage Scale Commit
teo Will Present the Results of Its
Deliberations to Mill Owners Su
perintendent Davis of the Sauquolt
Delivered nn Ultimatum.
The Slmp.son silk mill nt Minooka
was voluntailly closed yesterday by
tho management and tho forces of the
striking textile workers were thereby
augmented by about three hundred nnd
fifty recruits. Ever slnco the begin
ning of tho strike movement there has
been a great deal of "stilke talk"
nniong the hands, and much dtsatis
The proprietors therefore derided to
close tho mill until the present agita
tion Is over, and this determination
was yesterday morning announced to
tho girls. In answer to their demands,
Superintendent Butler announced that
tho Simpson people would be willing to
pay the samo wages as those offered
the Sauquolt workers by Superintend
ent Davis, In the notices posted last
week, offering a general eight per cent.
'Of thu larger establishments the
only two now running aro tho Cam
bria Silk company's mill, In Dunmore,
and the Petersbuig Silk Manufacturing
company's plant. Valentino Bliss con
trols the foimcr, and Retlllng, David &
Schoen tho latter. The Peteisburg
girls have given tho proprietors notice
thnt they will continue work until the
uniform wage scale Is formulated by
tho union's committee. This scale will
be presented to Uellllng, David &
Schoen, together with tho other mill
owners, today, and In case the Peters
burg proprietors do not accept the
scale, the hands threaten to Join the
Supcilntondent Davis.of tho Sauquolt
silk mill, was waited upon by the
strikers' scale commltteo yesterday
and a wngc scale picsented, establish
ing lutes to be paid the mill employe.-.
Superintendent Davis returned this
and made a counter offer.
He declared that tho company's vol
untary offer mado last week, offering
an average increase of eight per cent.,
still held good, and this was supple
mented by nn additional offer to the
weavers, for whom no provision was
made in tho notices which wero Inst
week posted. They are paid according
to the amount of work done, and tho
fineness of the material upon which
they nre employed. In some cases the
Increase offered amounts to one-half
cent a yard.
The weavers demanded an average
Increase of twenty-six per cent., In
some instnnces demanding a raise of
one and one-hair cents on the yard.
Jlr. Davis" offer is considerably smaller
than their demand, and accompanying
his approval the Sauquolt superintend
ent gave out his ultimatum. Ho said:
"If our complete offer, that made last
week, and my proposal of today to tho
weavers Is not accepted by tomorrow
noon, everything will be called off. The
company will withdraw tho entire
Yesteidny afternoon the strikers'
commltteo was busily engaged In
working on nnother scale, tho demands
of which will be less peremptory. In
establishing the uniform wage scalo
tho committee strikes an average be
tween the highest and Intermediate
wages now paid, and uses this as a
basis wage upon which to operate. Tho
scale will bo completed this morning,
nnd will bo put befoio tho various mill
owners this afternoon.
ANOTHER VISIT TODAY.
Tho committee will wait upon the
Sauquolt, Harvoys, Bliss, Simpson and
Petersburg mill authorities and present
to them tlio scale, later reporting upon
tho matter to tlio union. Tho offer
mado by Superintendent Davis Is In
reality one which would be granted by
nil tho mills, as Superintendent Joseph
Harvey has already announced bis ac
quiescence, and tho Klots people aro
quoted as having expiesscd their will
ingness to pay tho samo wages as go
Into effect at the Sauquolt. Tho offer
yesterday made to tho Simpson hands
was practically the same as that which
Superintendent Davis made.
