Boat el of Revision and Appeal De
clined by City Solicitor Vosburjj
to Be Extinct.
Tin- bouid of lcvislon of luxes and
appeals went out of existence yester
day, just four days ahead of the time
which the members had supposed all
along they would have to quit, April 1.
It was nil because City Solicitor Vos.

opinion on Tuesday stating that the
board had hud no legul existence since
Match 11.

Hon dltectlng the assessots to furnish
the Eighth ward assessment looks to
tho board of tcvlsion and appeal. This
lettOlutlon was ptcsented for tho sig

doubling the legality of the board to

the city solicitot.
The latter set forth In the opinion
lcndeied that the law dlricts that the
board shall complete Its woik ol hear

day of March in each year." As this
had l.ot been done, lie said, he ouM
not se" thu propriety of nny piiieeed
Ings to compel the a.-hesors to tutn
their books ovet.
'When the membeis of the board of

mottling that this opinion had been

Mr. Vonlnns stated yesterday to a

upon to say anything about tho status
of th boaid at that time and did not

He advised tho clei Hon of a boaid

it would bine oeen wise to let them sit

Carpenters' Union Turns to Individ
ual Buildei'B to Secure Adjust
ment of Their Difficulties.
The strike of the union catpenleis
of this city, which has been on for
almost two yeais, may possibly soon
be hettled. PiopoMtlons and counter
propositions have passed between the
strikers and Uulldots- Kxcnati?;c in
profusion, but strong effoits are now
being made to hettle the trouble by
arrangements made with individual
buildets, lather thou with the ex
change. The last piopo-itum made by the
catpentets was practically a demand
for an eight-hour day, with thltty
cents as the minimum wage. In an
swer to this, the exchange mtide an
offer which the caipontere rejected us
totally unsatlsfactoiy. It piovlded for
nine homo' woik a day, and stipu
lated that the catpentets should woik
for none but membets of the exchange.
No objections were to bis made by ihe
strikers to wotklns with members ot
thu Mechanics' union, and .mange
n enls wete alto made in the ptoposal
for the courae of action to be pursued
In t-wnt of a strike.
'o giippcualon of labor could be
railed, accotdlng to this conttact, he
fore the Kilevaneen weie placed be
fore a Joint tubltratlou boaid of build
ets and meinbefh ot the exchange. No
provisions for the wage scale were
made in this offer. The union will now
bend all its effoits towards securing
agieeable terms fiom individuals, and
ll Is expected that theie will soon
be linpoitunt developments hi the mat-

Clerk of Common Council Not
Common council hold a sc"liiu last
night, which lasted almost until mid
night. A discussion which lasted
neatly two houts wnt followed by tho
passage of tho leoiganlzation ordl
rnnco on second loading, uftcr n com
ptomlsc pioposltlon touching the reor
ganization of tho lite dcpaittnent and
tho dlsbandment of the volunteer force
hud been adopted.
After tho mdlnanee had been called
up the (list (intendment was oftered by
Mr. Oalvln. This provided for it dtop
In tho assessor's salary from SI.SOO to
1,00 a year. Dining tho uigumenl on
tho otdlnunce. City Assessors Owllym
Jones and Philip Klmdand wote noticed
conveislntt with several ot tho foun-
"I objec to this Intimidation of the
coiiucllmcn by the hsmosxois," shouted
Mr. fJulvIn.
' I'm glad the gentleman has given
me that cue," said Mr. Kellei. tlslng
to his feel. "Its time council sat
down on this this. At nvety meeting
leiently. tlnee or four men have been
on the floor of this chamber, lobbying
and whlspetlng to councilmen. What
right havp these men to come here
when theie Is a pioposltlon befoto
us to decrease their salaty and lobby
agnlust It openly? It's entltely wiong
and should be slopped,."
The amondment was lost by the fol
lowing tie vote:

Cuslck. Cnlplu 10.

Mr. Coleman offered an I'mendineiit
ct eating the oliw of deliuiiueut la1
collector. Mi. Pulnc opposed It In the
Intrtcst of economy and Mr. Keller
said It was meiely intiodured in order
"that another plum may be provided."
The nmendment failed ot passage by

Mr. Phillips offetcd an amendment,
which was adopted with a. iitsli. In
creasing the salary ot the plumbing
lmpeetor from $1,000 to $1,200.
Mr. Coleman then oii'eied an amend
ment striking out all except the Hist
two sections of that aitlcle ot the or
dinance piovldlng for a reoiganizatlon
of the flte department. This brought
about tho lively fight which had been
expected. Mr. Keller made a twenty
minute's speech reiterating all that he
has picvlously said on the eittcstlon. Ho
declnieel that the citizens of the city,
with one accoid, ilomanded a. change
In the file department, and that the
eoujuilmen would rue the day if they
failed to provide for u leorganlza
tlon. A. L. Lewis cliaiged that the lire i -oigunlzation
ordinance was a scheme
to blindfold the people Into believing
that they were going to get a paid lire
department, wiisn In leallty they would
be getting a department Inferior In
every tespect to the present depart
ment. Mr. Paine said the opposition to the
measure came fiom councilmen who
are members of hose companies mid
"who don't want to be legislated out of
a club."
This sort of discussion continued for
over an hour, when Chairman Catplu
relinquished the chair and submitted
a proposition which was finally agreed
upon by all. Before he offered his
amendment Mr. Coleman"Vlthdrew tho
one he had previously presented.
Mr. Cnlpln said that to disband the
volunteer force at the present time and
leave each company with only tho num
ber of poimanent men they have at
the present time was to render tho de
partment Incapable of doing cfllclent
work at a fire before tho call men ar
ilved on the scene or In case they did
not show up
He propoed to increase the number
of tegular paid men in each company
so as to make the total peimanent men
for each as follows: Neptunus, lour
men: Nay Augs, flvu men: Ctystnls,
live men: General Phlnneys, four men;
Kagles, tlliee men, Hook and Ladder,
four men: Reliefs, four men; Colum
bian, 4 men; Phoenix, four mon; Kxcel
slois, two men; Cunibsiiands, two men:
Llbertys, two men: Niagaras, two men;
William Councils, two men, Centurys,
two men; Keyser Valle, one man.
This makes a total of fifty-four paid
men, an increase of twenty-two per
manent men over the number now in
the dep.iiimcnt.
He would ptovlde for silllkletit call
men to btlng the total for each com
pany up to the figures piovlded In the
oidlnancp and would disband the vol
unteer force us soon as these addition
al peimanent men wete provided for.

He had lots of flgiues to prove that
all this could be done by appropriating
StfJ.OOo for flto department purposes.
Mr. Pulno was the first mnn to favor
the (intendment. He said It meant ad
ditional expense, but Inasmuch ns the
legislature was voting to take away
some JfiO.000 which had already been
paid Into the treasury, council should
place Itself on record an wanting to
use somo of tills amount. The motion
to adopt the amondment was pased
without a slnglo dissenting vote.

When council came to otdlnances on

Alwoith called up the oidlnanco pro

postponed until tonight. As theie wan

Employes of the Lackawanna Silk
Mill at Taylor Have Gone
Back to Woik.
With the exception of the fact that
work was resumed at tho Lackawanna,
mill at Taylor there wete no new de
velopments In the silk mill strike yes
terday and the whole situation now
seems to devolve upon the action ot
the Harvey local, In its treatment of
the proposal made by Superintendent
Joseph Harvey lo lite stilkcis' com
mittee. Woik was yesteulay morning te
sunied at the mill of the Lackawanna,
Silk company at Taylor by about one
half the wen king fotcc, nnd this morn
ing it is expected that the entire mini,
ber of employes will be back. The
fact that a settlement was made was
not known yesterday to all tho glils
and this resulted in the fact that they
did not tespond to the whistle.
The terms of the settlement woio
not made public as P. A. I.oublgnac,
who has chatge of the concern, was om
of tho city yesteulay. and Is thu only
one nuthoilzed to give out a statement.
It Ih kno.wn, however, that a happy
medium was artived at between the old
scale nnd that ptopos-ed bv the stilk

In the state of Pennsylvania.
t'olonel Waties conceived the Idea

now proposed to organize a committee
of prominent citizen to woik In con
junction with the olllceis.
Contractor Scluoeder piomlseg that
the aunoiy will be fully completed
and ready for occupancy about May S.
but on account ot the uncertainty ex

It Is ptoposed to place the pi ice of

It is s-ald that even a considerably
larger number of persons than this

ihe affair promises to be the gteatest
