"Why," huld StiDcrliilendent Davis
of thu iSaiKiuolt ye3terd.i', "do you
know what all this lining that you hear
of amounts to? In our last four pays
wo have dlHtrlbutrd $50,000 and have
collected $3.50 In lines.
"However, lt'n tho scale llnelf which
Is causing all thu trouble ana delay.
It,'s preposterous to oxpect us to give
It any consideration at nil. If we tried
to pay, on their terms, tho company
would have 19 go out of buolness. Tor
tho present, matters nro resting pretty
quietly and I do not think there wlil
bo any now developments In the sltim
Hon at our mill, until after Friday,"
Kildny is pay duy nt the Faurjuolt,
and when the girls report for their
wages they will bo brought together
nnd given it quiet little talk by Huper
Intendcnt Davis. Tlic latter will en
deavor to discover Just how many of
the girls wish to resume work, and
the pcatu of wages offered them will
be probably the snmo ns that made by
tho company on tho day last week on
Which the girls struck. If enough
glrlij signify their acquiescence to ie
sumo work Monday, tho mill will 1ms

remain closed for uu Indefinite period.
Over a hundred of the striking girls
waltid upon Superintendent Davis

whether or not they wished to romo
back to their work, nbout seventy de

THE PROPOSITION REJECTED.
Turnpike Company Will Not Accept
The Ablugton Turnpike rompauj v til
not accept the counter proposition of
tin- councllmiinlu committee regarding
the terms on which the turnpike as
far as Seneca stieet Is to be deeded to
the city. Tt Is understood that a com
munication ( ontnlnlng u rejection of
the proposition has been leceived by
City Solicitor Voshiug.
Tim company was uHtiim to deed
"West Market street to tha city provid
ing the citj- would agree to pave il
and providing that it would further
agree to expend $1,200 the first year and
$.",00 evoiy year thereafter In keeping
the street from Seneca stieet to tin:
old stone bridge In repair.
The committee which considered the
proposition was opposed to the ex
penditure of any money to keep any
poition of the road In repair and sub
mitted a counter pjoposltlon agreeing
to every p.ut of the company's pro
position except the part above referred
to. It Is this counter proposition which
has been 1 ejected.
WILL COST ABOUT S3, 500.
That Amount Will Be Needed to Tny
for Bepnhs to City Hall.
The members of the joint public
buildings committee of councils yes
terday completed their examination of
the Municipal building with the view
of estimating tho cost of the repairs
needed for that structure o that the
nccessaiy amount may he provided
for in thu coming appropriation ordi
nance. The approximate cost of the nec.es
:;ary repairs, according to Chairman
Adam Schroeder, of the select council
committee, will be about $::,ri00. This
will include the re-painting of tho
walls of the corridors, of the council
chambers and of a number of the of
fices In addition to the painting of all
wood work nnd iron wotk on the out
side of the building.
Mr. Schroeder stated that if the
painting of the outside of the building
were left for nnothep year It would
he ruinous. The Iron woik 011 the
towers, he said, is already thick with
111st, having never been painted slnco
the building was erected. The com
mittee will also recommend that new
awnings bo purchased and that a num
ber of other small repairs be made.

The UiU'slan flag dance was uinoug
the prettiest with its broad ted, white
and blue fettlpcd skirts, the reel mm
nets of the ladles and the ticb black
velvet and gold embroidered costumes
of the men. This Is known as "The
t'olllery Knglncer Dance" since the
peisonnel is made up of representatives
from that gieat institution of this
city. .Mis. It. .J. Foster, who Is one of
the chapcroncs and who has worked

men also wore handsome costumes In
this dance and carried Shepherds'
