IF NOT RECORDER, HE IS MAYOR
That Is the Position Taken by the
Hon. James Moir.
All persons Interested In municipal
affairs arc just now discussing some
of the possibilities In case tho Supreme
court should declare! the ripper bill
unconstitutional. One of the questions
which Is most widely discussed Is
If the bill Is declared uncontsltutlonal
would Recorder Molr'a term as chief
executive of the city end or would he
serve out the three year term as mayor
to which ho was elected.
A Tribune man sought out the re
corder yesterday and asked him for a
statement as to his Interpretation of
the law In case such a contingency as
tho one above mentioned should arise.
The recorder said:
"I have been advised on this ques
tion, and I feel convinced that If the
llppi-r Is declared unconstitutional by
the Supreme court I shall be able to
serve out as mayor the three year
term for which I was elected. I did
not resign as mayor. I was legislated
out of office and then appointed re
corder. "If tho act under which I was re
moved as mayor Is declared to bo un
constitutional, I would be placed In
precisely tho same situation as If that
act was never introduced or thought
of. There was no doubt In anybody's
mind before the Muehlbronner bill
was introduced that I would continue
to serve as mayor until my term ex
pired, and I am just as firmly con
vinced now as I was then that I can
continue to do so If the ripper Is de
There are some, however, who dif
fer with the recorder in his views on
this proposition. It is held by these
that by relinquishing tho office of
mayor and assuming the office of re
corder before the date on which
Seranton became a city of the second
class, Recorder Moir gave up all right
and title to the position of mayor.

SATJQUOIT SOFT SILK GIRLS
VOTE FOR SETTLEMENT.
By an Almost Unanimous Vote tho
Employes of the Soft Silk Depart
ment of the Sauquoit Mill Yester
day Decided to Accept the Offer
Made by Superintendent Davis.
Hard Silk Workers Meet Today
and from All Indications Will Fol
As was predicted In yesterday morn
ing's Tribune, tho action taken by tho
girls of the soft silk department of the
Sauquoit mill yesterday afternoon
broke tho backbone of tho strike,
which has been conducted for tho last
three months. By an almost ununl
mous vote tho girls decided to return
to work, after hearing an address by
"Mother" Mary Jones, In which she
strongly recommended tho advisability
of accepting the offer made through the
lit. Rev. Bishop M. J. Hoban by Super
intendent Davis, acting for the oper
ators as a body,
The vote on his proposition was 314
to 6. The hard silk girls will meet this
afternoon, and "Mother" Jones yester
day remarked that as tho operators'
offer Is a very fair one. It Is most likely
that the proposal will be accepted. The
employes of the smaller mills will fol
low the lead taken by the Sauquoit
strikers, and It may therefore be safely
said that tho strike Is over. Of the
mills originally closed, four will be In
Tho MInooka girls, who Monday de
cided to accept Superintendent Butler's
offer, will return to work today. Then
there are Harvey Bros.' mill at Forest
City, Renard & Son's plant at Taylor
and the Lackawanna company's mill
at the same place, all of which aro now
in full blast.
WAITED ON BISHOP.
Tho strikers' executive committee
waited upon Bishop Hoban yesterday
morning, in order to ascertain whether
Superintendent Davis had granted
some of the union concessions which
have pro-ed obstacles to a settlement
so long. Tho bishop gave them most
welcome news. The weavers at tho
Sauquoit mill will not only be allowed
to have a girl to measure their silk for
them, but will also be granted the
privilege of choosing this person from
their own ranks. They will themselves
attend to her pay for the service.
This Is considered by the weavers to
be one of the greatest advantages
gained by them, and It Is largely re
sponsible for yesterday's overwhelming
vote in favor of return to work. The
executive committee was also Informed
that the warpers' grievances were to
be given all due consideration.
All that the members of this depart
ment asked was the reinstatement as
forewoman of Miss Margaret Roach,
who went out on strike with them. As
a man has been already appointed to
act as foreman, it will not bo possible
for Miss Roach to be immediately re
instated, but the girls have the assur
ance that she will become a forewoman
as soon as a vacancy occurs.
OFFER TO WEAVERS.
The offer made the weavers Is a gen
erous one. It consists of an Increase
of half a cent per yard, and any skilled
weaver can easily make from twenty
cents up additional every day at this
rate. The wage offered tho hard silk
girls is the old 8-12 per cent. Increase,
but the additional concession of allow
ing a half holiday on Saturday during
the sixteen summer weeks, makes an
extra increase of from fifteen to thirty
After this ufternoon's meeting a gen
eral meeting of tho Sauquoit girls will
be held, in case the hard silk workers
accept Superintendent Davis' offer, and
the hands will return to work as soon
as the mill Is anounced to be ready for
operations. While it is not likely that
the full force of employes will lie re
quired at once, still within a few weeks
places will be found for all the strik
ers. A. special meeting of the hard silk
workers will also be hold tomorrow
Tomorrow afternoon the strikers
from Harvey Brothers' central city mill
will meet and vote upon the operators'
offer. There is no doubt that they will
follow the lead of the Sauquoit girls,
as the two locals have gone hand In
hand since the very beginning of the
strike. Superintendent Harvey, In fact,
has claimed all through the three
months that a settlement would have
been effected with the employes had It
not been for the fact that their sym
pathies were enlisted with tho Sauquoit

About the New Catarrh Cure.
Tho now Catarrh Cure Is a new de
parture in so-called catarrh cures be
cause It actually cures, and la not
simply a temporary relief.
The now Catarrh Cure Is not a salve,
ointment, powder nor liquid, but a
pleasant lasting tablet containing the
best specifics for catarrh In a concen
trated, convenient form.
Tho old stylo of catarrh salvos nml
ointments aro greasy, dirty and Incon
venient at tho best; the new prepara
tion being In tablet form Is nlways
clean and convenient.
Tho now Catarrh Cure Is superior to
Catarrh powders becauso It Is a no
torious fact that many catarrh pow
ders contain cocaine.
The now Catarrh Cure Is called
Stuart's Catarrh Tablets, a wholesome
combination of blood root, beaohwood
tar, gualacol and other antiseptics,
and cures by Its ncllon upon tho blood
and mucous membrane, tho only ra

tho operators' proposal. It was at this
mill that the strike movement origin
ated. Last Saturday they voted upon
tho proposal made through the medi
ation of Bishop Hoban, and decided not
to accept it. There was not a full at
tendance, however, and, moreover, tho
Sauquoit girls had not yet given any
indication that they would accept tho
offer. Tho fact that the employes who
havo been tho leaders in tho movement
have decided to return to work will
most likely result In the Klotz girls
doing likewise, Sunday.
No meetings have boon called of the
strikers of the three Bliss mills, at
North Seranton, Dunmoro and pick
son. As already announced In The
Tribune, Mr. Bliss has decided to move
tho first-named mill from this city, but
It Is understood that other parties will
open it in about three months. The
strikers of the other two mills only
wait for the Sauquoit girls to take the
Initiative In resuming work. At Tay
lor, the mill of Mulhcrin & Judge Is tho
only one idle, and complications arise
hero in the matter of a settlement.
Tho offer made by tho operators,
through the bishop, does not include
the'Taylor operators, as they claim the
wages they paid before tho strike wore
almost as high as those asked from the
MEETING AT TAYLOR.

ing of the Taylor girls Saturday, and

girls and boys reported for duty at
Rolling, David & Schoen's mill yester
day morning, in accordance with the
agreement they made with Superin

them, however, to return home and

the mill will be opened with the full
The superintendent has written to
the management at Paterson regard
ing the situation, and the same terms
will be probably advanced their hands
as those made at the other mills.
A mass meeting of the strikers will
bo held next Monday night, with Col
lege hall as the probable place of tho
session. Addresses by "Mother" Jones
and other labor leaders will be made.
Tho strikers were yesterday presented
with one hundred straw hats by the
Misses Gibbons and Geary, milliners,
of Wyoming avenue. They were given
direct to Miss Kate Brogan, of tho
Harvey girls, and distributed by her
among four of the locals.

ROOHB SAYS CITY CAN'T MAKE
Tho Ripper Bill Directs That Con
tracts Shall Be Awarded as Hereto
fore and tho Old Laws Provide
That Councils Shall Make Regula
tions Covering This Matter An
Ordinanco Providing Such Regula
tions Should Bo Passed at Once,
Xi'. Roche Thinks.
In the opinion of Director of Public
Works John 13. Koohe, It will bo neces
sttry before any contracts can bo lot
for any olty work to have nn ordinance
passed by councils setting forth who
shall award such contracts. He has
carefully looked up tho law and be
lieves that this Is the only proper thing
to do. '
At present, nccordlng to Mr. Itoche,
the city has no power to enter into, a
contract. The ripper .bill provides that
all contracts relating to city affairs
shall bo let as heretofore In each of tho
cities of the second class. It contains
another provision which, as ho views
It, debars councils from letting con
tracts. This reads, "No contracts shall
bo entered Into or executed directly by
the councils or any committee there
of." By referring to a digest of tho old
second-class city laws It will bo found
that tho Act of 1ST4 sets forth how
contracts shall be awarded. This act,
by tho terms of the ripper bill, Is the
one which must be followed in this
city, says Mr. Roche.
WHAT IT PROVIDES.
It provides that "all stationery,
printing, paper and fuel used in the
councils and In other departments of
the city government, and all work and
materials required by tho city, hall be
furnished, and the printing and all
other kinds of work to be done for tho
city shall be performed under contract,
to bo given to" the lowest responsible
bidder, under such regulations as shall
be prescribed by ordinance, and It shall
be the duty of councils forthwith to
ennct such ordinances."
Mr. Roche claims that tho immedi
ate Introduction and passage nf an
ordinance giving some person or per
sons tho right to award contracts is
absolutely necessary. There aro sev
eral small sewers for which bids have
already ben received, but not opened,
and City Cleric Iavolie advertised yes
terday for sealed proposals for two
sowers to sower portions of Bellevue.
Mr. Roche was asked by a. Tribune
reporter as to whom he thought it
would bo best to vest the power of
awarding contracts in, and he replied
tho recorder and his cabinet. Ho said
that tho ripper bill, as originally intro
duced, provided for the awarding of
contracts by the recorder and the head
of tho proper department, tout ex
nressed himself as not favoring this
"The awarding of contracts is a very
delicate matter," said he, "and should
not, I believe, be vested in one or two
oflicials. I have no desire to award the
largo share of contraots -which come
under tho head of my department, be
cause I realize that, no matter how fair
and impartial I might be in perform
ing this duty, I would always be sub
jected to more or less criticism.
"I think that the recorder and the
members of his cabinet, or at least tho
principal members, should be consti
tuted by councils as a board to receive
'and open all bids and award contracts.
I think an ordinance providing for
some method of awarding contracts
cannot be passed too quickly, as tho
hands of the head of every department
will be tied until it is passed."
City Clerk Lavelle, himself a re
markably well informed amateur
municipal lawyer, takes Issue with Mr.
Roche regarding the latter's conten
tion that under tho ripper bill no con
tract can be awarded by councils, Mr.
Lavelle says that while the bill says
that councils should not "enter into or
execute" any contracts, that this does
not cover the "awarding" of contracts.
A contract tnrnot be entered Into, he
claims, until ithas been awarded.
Recorder Moir, in speaking about tho
matter to a Tribune man yesterday
afternoon, said that ho was much 'im
pressed with Mr. Itocho's suggestion
that tho awarding of contracts be done
by himself and tho members of his offi
cial family and that hn believed that
this plan would bo more satisfactory
all around than delegating tho power
to one official.
