STEEL COMPANY APPEALS
Claims That It Cannot Bo Assessed,
Appeals on Lackawanna Assess
ment to Be Heard Today.
Colonel C. C. Mattes, oC tlie T-acka-wnnna
Iron and Stool company, ap
petti ud before the board of city asses
bors yesterday afternoon and asked
that tlio a&sessment against the shops
and mills of the company, amountltiff
to considerably over $100,000 be strick
en off the books.
He cluinieil that no more work was
.Vjelncr done at the mills and that the
tiork of teat ins some of tho buildings
down preparatory to moving the plant
to Buffalo, had hecn already com
menced. Tho assessois contended
that when (he assessment was made
the mills were in active operation, and
decided to carefully consider the mat
ter before arriving; at any definite con
clusion. Another interesting question will
eume up today when representatives
of the Delawau Lackawanna and
Western company will appear before
tho board and ask to have assessments
upon tho various ear shops of tho
company, amounting1 to over .f 176,000
Tho company oflicials bold that all
but two of the buildings used as car
shops are used simply for tho repair
of ears and not for the construction
of entirely new lolling stock and that
they are therefore under the law ex
empt from taxation. The question of
law on this point seems to he pretty
thoroughly settled. Opinions are on
file In the city clerk's office from cx
C'lty Solicitors Vosburg and McGinley,
setting forth that shops used for re
pair work aio exempt, and the asses
sots themselves have an opinion from
Pity Solicitor YVatron, giving the same
It would appear then that the ities
tion as to whether the shops should
he assessed, revolves merely around a
question of fact, tho question of law
being praetleaiy settled. It H proba
ble, If the company oflicials swear to
affidavits setting forth that tho shops
are Used solely for repair purposes,
that the assessment will be taken
from the books.

COMMONERS TEAR UP THE AP
Select Council Swallows the Hatton
Increase for Harmony's Sake, but
the Members of the Lower Branch
Heedless o the City Being Tied
Up for Want of Money Cut and
Slash the Bill to Suit Their Every
1 "Whim and Pnncy Two Busy Ses
sions. Select and common councils met last
night and pushed the appropriation
ordinance to llnal reading. Common
council, however, made numerous
amendments, nnd It will again go be
fore the select branch.
Common -council killed oft all possi
bility of voting the seventeen extra
counctlmcn into their seats by having
Mr. Keller take the chair and entertain
n, motion to seat them, which Mr. Cal
pln had persistently ruled was otit of
order. The motion was killed, and then
a motion to reconsider tlie voto was
mudcand killed, which forbids another
motion to reconsider.
Tho Republicans brought this down
on their own heads. Chairman Calpin
had all along refused to entertain any
motion to seat the extras. Some of
the Democrats regretted this, as they
wanted to settle the matter once and
for all. Mr. Calpin could not very well
reverse himself, so he arranged that
tho next time tho matter was broached
he would call a Republican to the
chair, nnd allow the motion to be killed
While waiting tfor the appropriation
ordinance to come over from select
council, Mr. Keller -suggested that they
take up the matter of admitting tho
extras. Mr. Calpin quickly called Mr.
Keller to the chair, and, taking a place
on the tloor, moved to seat the extras.
Mr. Coleman seconded it. The Demo
crats, with the exception or Messrs.
Calpin and Coleman, voted against the
motion, and It was killed by a voto of
eleven to eight. Then Messrs. Calpin
and Coleman, having voted in tho af
firmative, moved to reconsider, nnd
again the motion was killed. Messrs.
Calpin and Coleman this time helped
to kill It.
SOME ASTOUNDING RULINGS.
Mr. Keller made some astounding
rulings in an effort to defeat the trick,
but. under the leadership of tho ever
sinillng Calpin, tho Democrats each
time reversed him by appealing from
the decision of the chair. Mr. Keller
excused his action by claiming that he
was only following precedents set by
the Democratic chairman at reorgan
ization. "I only wanted to give you a
taste of your own medicine," said he,
turning to Mr. Calpin, when the smoko
of battlo had cleared away.
"But you want to have the votes be
hind you when you attempt that sort
of thing," retorted Mr. Calpin.
Mr. Calpin Introduced a license tax
ordinance imposing a tnx of 5 per cent,
on the; gross receipts of trolley com
panies, and 2 per cent, on the gross re
ceipts of water, gas. steam heat, elec
tric light, telephone and telegraph
Tlie appropriation ordinance had five
votes against it in select council:
Messrs. Finn, Regan, Cosgrove,
Vaughan and McAndrew. Mr. Cos
grove voted against it, ho stated, be
cause of the item of $2,000 for the mili
tary companies. Mr. demons ex
plained that he opposed the increase in
the salary of the secretary to the re
corder, but rather than hold up the or
dinance, he would swallow this.
When the ordinance went over to the
common council it was amended by
taking ?3,627.50 from the judgment's
and incidentals fund and appropriating
It its follows: To increase salary of
clerk of the director of public safety
fiom $7S0 to $1,000: for a fire alarm box
at the corner of Church and Ferdinand
streets, $125; incidentals for clerk ot
common council, $23; extras at Nay
Aug park, $1,0:17.311; Improving Third
street, $2,000; to settle claim of I. J.
llickey, $120; Incidentals department
of public: works, $100.
The $2,000 appropriation for the mili
tary companies was .stricken olf by a
vote of 14 to n and turned over to
judgments and incidentals. Tho $186.92
which was appropriated for paying the
city's sham of the paving in front of
the Hundley estatfi building on Petin
avenue was, on motion of Mr. Cole
man, diverted to the judgments and In
Kfforts were made to add appropria
tions for a city eleteellve and four
extra patrolmen and $a30 for heating
Piovidence station house, but tljey
failed. Messrs. Clark, Alworth, Phil
lips, Coleman nnd Rocho were the only
members to voto in favor of ro-creat-Ing
the office of city detective. Mr.
Rocho was tho only member to voto for
the extra patrolmen.
Mr, Keller made a lengthy speech
against he motion to increase the sal
ary of Director Hitchcock's clerk. He
said he could till tho clerkship lit city
hall with Just as good If not belter
men than were now tilling them foi .
from 23 to 30 per cent, less money. This
year, he went on to say, tho city has
W0.000 more money than last year, yet
there Is only $18,000 of this going for
Improvements. The venutlnder is frit
tered in increased salaries or other
things from which tho city gets noth
ing substantial In return. Ho wanted
$15,000 to open Vine street, he saiil, but
lie could not oven dream of getting It,
although it was patent to ovoryono
tliat Inside of two years this improve
ment would pay for itself in Increased
valuations consequent upon the build
ing up of a new territory. A good por
tion of this $u0,(00 of Increased reve
nue, Mr. Keller, said, should go to
wiping out the iloatlng debt of $150,000
which tho tuxjayers will havo to meet
next year by a special levy.
Mr. Keller's speech did some good.
The original motion was to increaso
the clerk's sulary to $1,200. AVhen Mr.
Keller got through, Mr. Alworth moved
to amend by muklng It $1,000, and the
amendment was carried. The com
mon council also added a clause direct
ing tho controller to credit all unex
pended balances to tho corresponding
items of this yenr's budget.
The presentation .by Mr, Alworth of
an ordinance for sidewalks on both
sides of Main avenue, between Wood
and Market street, was tho only other
Important business in tho lower brunch.

WILL NOT SIGN
REFUSES TO ATTACH HIS NAME
TO PETITION FOR RELEASE.
When Offered an Opportunity of Se
curing His Fieedom, Forthwith,
Under tho Act Just Signed by the
Governor, the Stubborn Old Man
Who Has Been in Jail Nearly
Seven Years for Coutompt of Court,
Declares Ho Will Sign Nothing.
Not Anxious to Be Tree.
1 1 may be that it will bo necessary to
bring a derrick, crowbar and set of
Jackscrewp to the nld of the Gannon
"ripper" before that very humane
measure shall have accomplished Its
As has boon suspected for some time,
it is now quite certain that Gannon not
only Is not anxious to leave tho county
Jail, -but can bo expected to oppose any
efforts that are made to bring about
Thinking to bo real enterprising, a
Tribune reporter yesterday set out to
havo Gannon given his freedom. Judges
Edwards nnd Kelly were Interviewed,
nnd when they declared that it was
only necessary for the proper motion
to ho made to bring nbout tho release
of Gannon, the reporter proceeded to
consult a number of ottorneys as to the
most direct method of procedure.
All agreed that habeas corpus pro
ceedings were the appropriate thing.
Attorney T. P. Duffy was engaged to
prepare a petition In habeas corpus,
and forthwith to the jail hastened the
reporter to secure Gunnon's signature.
Would Gannon sign? By no means.
Not a bit of It.
WILL. SIGN NOTHING.
"I'll sign nothing." he quoth, as de
terminedly as when he refused to obey
the court's order to sign the deed, and
thereby put himself behind prison bars
"Don't you want to get out?" the re
porter asked in some surprise.
"I'm willing to stay here the re
mainder " and hero Gannon sud
denly broke off. "J'll havo nothing to
say," he added.
The reporter explained to him the
trouble that had been entailed In pre
paring and passing tlie bill that the
governor had just signed, and how no
other individual, possibly, had over
been so considerately treated by tho
courts and the legislature, but it was
of no Interest to Gannon.
"Whatever is to be done, they'll have
to do it," was the most he would ven
ture. Judging from Gannon's words and
manner, it is not rash to say that if he.
comes out of the county jail, it will be
when he Is rut out.
As tho case to which the commit
ment related was one in equity, the
judges can deal with it In recess. This
circumstance will be taken advantage
of to effect Gannon's discharge, with
out waiting for the reconvening of
court on May 6.
WHAT BILL. PROVIDES.
Tho Gannon 1I1I provides that the
court, in such cases as his, can desig
nate some one else to sign the convey
ance. A motion to have the court di
rect the sheriff to perform this office
will likely be made today. Once it is
done, Gannon is no longer in contempt,
and consequently no longer under com
mitment. Having no further call on
the hospitality of tho county. Warden
Simpson will be forced to compel Gan
non to quit the premises.
