the meeting of the whole committee.
Senator Vaughan and Snatoi.s Muehl
bionner ami Plsher letlred to a cor
ner of the committee room to rwune
their repent. Senator Vaughan drew
trom his pocket latge envelope con
taining the amendments he wished to
have e-oiisidctcd. One of them com
posed eighteen pages of typewriting:.

Senator Fisher dicw forth the amend
ments tb.it 51 r. Elphlnstone bad pie
I)aied and moed that they be pie
sentcd as the repot t of the sttb.com
mittee. Mr. Vaughan protested that
he had not seem them and had not
been given an opportunity of setting
lorth fcranton's needs. Mr. I'lphlii
stone, who was present, volunteeied
the Information that Scranton's in
quests ns outlined at Thuitday's heat
ing had been consldeted, and. wheie
deemed ptactlcable and ospedlent,
weie incorporated in the amendments
he had prepared. -Senator -'ViauBhan
called attention to tho fact that no
provision was made for supplying
Scianton with corpotato powei. Mr.
Klphlnstono admitted that this bad
been overlooked and that such a pio
Is!on should bo Incorporated.
"While Vaughan and Ulphlnstcme
weie discussing this oversight, Senator
Fisher renewed his motion.
Senator Muehlbtonnor, as ohalmian
of tha sub-committee, pv.4 It nnd It
' was canlcd by .Mr. rishor's vole,
Senator Vaughan refusing to have any
patt in tho proceedings.
"Say." broke In Senator Grady, a
member of tho municipal affairs com
mittee, "Will you vote for the bill
if wo Insert your amendments?"
"That's my business." angilly re
torted Senutor Vaughan.
"You've come here with, a chip on
your shoulder, have you?" rejoined
the gentleman from Philadelphia.
Senator Vaughan turned away, bade
hN fellow committeemen, "Good
night," and walked out Senator
Muehlbronner nnd Mr. I'lphlnstnne
both declared that there wnb no In
Untlon to ignore Scranton. It was
Imply an unfottunate accident, they
say, that Senator Vaughun did not get
around with his amendments until (It
wis almost 0 o'clock, the hour for
tf opening of the senate sesMon.
i Anything that Strnnton absolutely
miis llvo ay cai! be added to the
bill tv.oFTow when It corner up be
fore th aamte.
What the Bill Provide.
The bill, as it now stands, provides
that ths office of mayor shall be abol
Ished; that the chief executive of sec
ond clus cities tlull be a city ie-
eorder: that h shall appoint all offi
cers and heads of departments, In
cluding ttoasuier. controller, ns3es
sois, solicitor; that thfse appointees
must be con II uncd by council. That
the ofllce of i etcher ot ta.en shall be
abolished nnd the onice of delinquent
tax collector established. Tho ap
pointments made by tho directors ot
public works, public chailtlos and the
like are not lo requite tho confirma
tion of select rounrll: the city solici
tor .shall' appoint his own assistants:
councils shall be apportioned nnd
elected as is prescribed In the present
second class city laws, one select nnd
one commoner for each waul, nnd an
additional commoner for evety so
ninny resident taxable' ouncllnieii
arc to hold over until the end of tholr
terms, nnd the lrcoidor, who Is to
lie appointed by the governor. Is to
continue until 1002. The purpose of
substituting a recoider for a mayor Is
to ovoicome the constitutional pio
h'bltlon against rutting a man's teitn
of office. City Solicitor Vosbuig told
me tonight the Supreme rout I has de
elnied such procodtne as this to be un
constitutional. CongiesHinnu William Council, ue
lonipunled bv bis pilvate secretary,
John It. "Williams arrived hue at T
o'clock p. m. trom Washington to con

evening at the Commonwealth in con
ference with rity Solicitor Voburg
nnd Select Councilman demons, 10
g.irdlng the policy to be pursued In
.securing the best that can be gotten
lor Scrunton In the way of a second
class, charter. Representatives Scheuer
and Phllbin nnd Deputv Attorney Gen
Ciol Pleltz nlso dtopped In on the
Senator Vaughan en mo In at 10
o'clock but did not see Mr. Connell
as tho latter had gone to the home of
Governor Stone In i espouse to an ur
Rtnt leanest and was still their at
11 "0 o'clock, when Senator Vuuxhan
letlred to his club.
Scranton's Policy to Be Outlined.
Senator Vaughan will see Conci ess
man Connell at a meeting at 0 o'clock
tomorrow morning, which Is to be at.
tended by all the Lackawanna people.
At this meeting it Is expect d a
Scranton policy will be outlined. City
Solicitor Vo'burg unhesitatingly de
clares in favor of getting In out of
tho wet just as Allegheny has done,
and Select Councilman demons agrees
with him. Mr Vosbuig ftitther ays
ho teels satisfied that the Lackawanna
legislators v III be tound to be of sim
ilar mind when they come to declaie
The treatment accoided Senator
Vaughan may be an i&sue In the "Rip
per" light. Senator Ilatdenbergh, af
ter hearing of It. declared himself
ic.idy to act with Sctanton no matter
what way she went. The chances are
that the senator from Wayne will not
be called upon to com t the ill will of

TIRST "RIPPER" CONTEST.
Will Come Up When Bill Is Reported
to the Senate.
Attorney CSeoige Rlplinstone. who
spoke for the Allegheny councllmanlc
delegation at last Wednesday's hear
ing on the Muehlbtonner bill, came
bete, today, exptesslng tho tlrin belief
that It will be Impossible to prevent
the passage of the "tipper," and that
tho wisest rouise for his people Is to
make the best of It by securing hh
many as possible ol the amendments
Uk tiuor. He has a number of
amendments piepared, and spent the
day In the lobbies nnd the evening In
the committee loom endeavoring to
hne them favorably eonsldeied. Jio
opposes the abolition of the otllee of
nx rrcelver, and wants that the oim
ellinen who are elected one week Hum
next Titsday shall be permitted to
take their seats, t'nder the piovlslons
of the "ripper" bill the present council
men ate to continue In oillce until 1902.
John P. McTlghf. icptesentatlve
ftom the Third Allegheny dlrtilct, who
It will he remembered oted for Quay,
with the applanation of bis constltu
cuts, nulled here early this motnlng,
full of confidence that the "ripper"
will be put through with a rush. "I
do not know of anything that can pre
vent Its Immediate passage " contl
dentlj deflated Mr. McTlghe. n,
fuither says that a huge number of
leglulators from arlous patts of the
state spent tho recess In Plttbutg,
quietly inquiring among the business
and piorisslonal people as to what
their sentiments ate on tho proposed
change ot chaiter. This, It Is claimed,
will bao the effect of making pro
Rlpperlkv. of such ot them as might
have been honestly wavering.
The rtiivt contest over the "ripper"
bill will ionic tomorrow, when the bill
Is repot led by the municipal affairs
foiuniltic. It passed first leading, It
n 111 be leinemberrd. and was tin n ie.
! committed at the behest of Its trlends
that all p u ties Intetested might havt
n chance to be hnrd upon It. Such
o tho amendments ns the friends of
the measure want will be ofteied b
the eouimlttie when second leading
!s leached. When these havo been
dttlv attached tho moasuie will be
pnsftcd on second reading.
On the following day. If the piesent
programme is not changed, tho bill
will be put through on third reading
and turned over to the house. The
tlrst line-up there will be, a motion to
fK a special older for It, that Its pas
sage may be hastened with all pos
sible speed. A majority vote If re
quited to ti a special order. The fact
that the friends of tho measure are
willing to put It to the special order
test tends to condrm belief in their
claims that there Is no end of spare
Mil's for the "tipper" in the lower
branch of the government.

fly Inclusive Wire from Tha Associated Trm.
Washington, Feb. 11. This was i
field day In the house, being by far
tho liveliest day during the present
session. A very tnteicstlug debata
over the constitutional limitations on
the power of the senate over revenue
legislation Initiated by the house vvai
pteclpltated when Mr. Payne, tho
chairman of the ways and means com
ml tee, hi ought In the resolution of tho
committee to dlsagtea to the substi
tute piUpoetl by the senate ns nn
amendment to the war revenue ic
duction net and to ask for n eonfei
enco with the senate. Mr. T.iwne.y,
of Minnesota, championed the cause of
the house and Its paramount rights
over revenue legislation, but was un
fortunate lu not blinking forwaid a
lesoltttlon to ictuin the bill to the
senate with the declaration thnt tho
senate bad transcended Its powei In
substituting an entirely new mcasute
fen- the bill of the bouse. The subse
quent debate showed that had this
trim-' been adopted the proposition
would have commanded a large vote.
Instead, however, he Insisted upon a
division of the lesolutlon and after the
(list poitlon to disagree had been
adopted he made the point of older
that the second motion was not In
onler horim.ip lhe senate In Its ub
stltule had Invaded the constitutional
pieiogailvc of tin house The t'esuir
was thnt the meniheis weie not con
fronted with the dlieet Issue and thu
boiie voted 211 to .", ! to ask tor a ton
fetenee Boer Widow Fund.
Later In lhe ray. dining the con
sideration ot the diplomatic and con
sular appropriation bill, an Impas
sioned pto-Uoer speech by Mr. Sul
7er, of New York, dtew ftom Mr.
Million, of Pennsylvania, a lecltal of
the lalslng of a fund of about $l,'J0n
for the benefit of the widows of lloei
loldleip at a meeting held In this city,
at which Mr. Sulzer presided. He de
elaied that after the "teirapln and
cold bottles got In theit woik," onlv
18 was left for the Uoer widows. This
stung Mi. Sulrer to leply at length,
lie pjlel he had no connection with
the expenditure of the fund, to which
ho had conti United $17.1. and a very
lively tow- followed, the i limns jf
which was reached when Mr. S-Uilze-had
lead an iinonjmntis letter which
made a sensational petsonal attnek
upon Mr. Peity S. Heath, late nflst
nnt pei'.tmnhti'r general, who was sce
nt uy ot lhe Republican national
i nmnilllec dining the lcrent e i,a
paign, rhniglng him with being Xee
ly's sponsor and then dcnlng It after
the at rest of Neely, nnd also making
allegations agalnitt Ma Ifeatli In
connection with government deposits
lu a N'ew Yotk bulk. Mr. Sulzer
charged Mr. Heath with being lc
sponslhlo for the oh culm- and of tho
stories about his connection with tho
fund for the Uoer widows. Mr. Knox.
Mass.. declared that It was lontemp
tlhle to attack a gentleman who could
not icply, through the medium of an
anonviuous letter, nnd moved that
the lull-action of the niles be leported
to the bouse and stilcken fiom the
recoul. lu the coinse ot the debate
upon this motion, Mr. f-uUer declare I
that although the communication was
nnonymous, he fathered every word of
It and would be responsible for It sjs
a member of the house and ns an
Individual. The Democrats fllllbus
tejied against the motion to i-xpungo
the letter ftom the congic-slonal rec
oul. and finally foiced an adjourn
ment, tho effect being to peinilt the
publication of the lettei In the record.
