An a tcsult of tho discussion papers

wero adopted. In these the society
congratulated the Muntclpnl league on
the splendid woik It has done, urged
an attendance of good leputnblu citi

tho other elections, and nlso advised
its mombeis to ciuefully look Into the

After the regular loutluc business
had been transacted President Ather

The latter may look narrow, even out
rageous to us, but in Plttsbuig they
are tr.vlng to accomplish an end and
ate not very particular as to the

the act to go through, because th?y
have been ridden for yeais and enri

and who have done most elegantly and

honest administration tbeie must be
honest and intelligent electois."
Mr. Toirey Intetspersed his nddiess
with seveial polnlPcl anecdote, and
his vvoids had a m irked effect on bis
audience, in concluding, he said:
"We do not itaud up for nbfolutc In
tegilty us we should. We aie bound
to stand up lor law and personal right
nnd should not be so willing to com
promise. Influenced by matteis of pei
sonal feeling. We let out feelings tun
away w Ith us. Instnneo the recent
street car ftrlke. No matter what our
impntliles wete, we should not havo
allowed any passengers In cats to l
liented with conte'inpt nnd hailed with
oppi obi Iouh epithets by stieet cbll
dren. And another thing about the
stilke. Kvon though we do have as
poor n. service as can be tound tho
counti) over, and tho company's pol
icy tow in els the city has been the least
Ubcial, still, as an American citizen,
!t toused my blood that business men
lould be intimidated by stilkcis and
be c'lctaled to, as to whether or not
they could sell meichandWe to street
ear company lepresentntlvcs."
The speaker then paid his ottentio.i
to the (lie department, and raid:

P'lttment, look at the fire department.
How has It always shown Itself, and
paitlcularly duilng the last big fire?
And what Is the renson-.' It Is con

we reap tne results.
"I heard of an action of ono ot the
firemen last Thursday who demanded
from tho proprietor of a bIioo store
boots for himself and comrades, and
on being lefused said, "Oh, to h 1
with tho building then Let It burn "
O. P. Miller, an e-North Scranton
councilman, concurred In ull Mr. Tor
icy's views, as did also the ollur
speakers. The next meeting of the so
i loty will be a reception to the ladles,
and ptomlses to be a gala event.
