as belnc opposed to t lio contratt be
ll1, fxundi'd beyond the length of one
,v"i'. It inicbl 'be jaid that there Is
noihtne frtpln about tin- liRhtlns
contrail, tor It has reached to ipilte
a vexatious problem and upinlon is
si. divided tint there Is no presaging
the result nf tonight's srs'lon.
t'ltife i'-''i meeting of cnunclls or
si oral ueh.s ago. when councils re
)r ieil both bids thoM' from the
f'l tile ljlqht company and the
V,'e...iiich i!as Lighting company la
the hope of receiving, an appreciably
lower Phtimate on lllumlnatliin. there
has been bin Utile ai-mity by elthei
of tlir i 'iinjianlps. The hustling was
done b'foie the nrsi bids were sent
in. and it Is sumih-cd tint there will
be Utile difference between either es
timate. What adds to the Interest of th
competition between the companies
that are so anxious to light the city's
stiPPts, is the possible entrance. It
might be fa Id the assured entrance,
of another compam in this Held.
The new company is likely to be
made up of Scranton and local capi
talists, whose purpose Is to introduce
the Huriows gns light. The Hin
rows light Is tho latpst development
of illumination by pas. and it has
carried out this idea! it Is claimed, to
a stage that not only rivals, but sur
passes the arc IIeIiI and every other
form of gns Illumination,
The Borrows light is similar lo the
incande.-cnt arc lamp and herein It
differs from the Welsbach light. It
gives forth the brilliance of the are
light, but is of greater intensity and
is devoid or lliekering and the like.
The narrows Light company claims
the. meritr of its light are to be
found in the burner. It burns eighty
per cent, of air under pressure mixed
with less than twenty per cent, of
city gas, a mantle being used to dif
fuse the light. It has been on the
market Ies than a year, but In places
whore it has been offered to local
capitalists, It has been oagorl
grasped, and the Scranton parties
who are inf rested in the venture rle
clare. after witnessing a demonstra
tion of the light, that they had ne or
seni its erjual, in any form nf jiu
miiution. 'the Tribune offers this information
for what it h worth In the S'Mtlemem
of the licht problem.
Ar. to the municipal water plant. It
-nill be remembered iliai the measure
is to c.-imo up for final reading In
sleet council to-nighi. The ordin
ance pasrod tn readings, and with
out any opposition, ai the last meeting
of the sele.-t bi.dv, and there .s no
fear that their will be iiny difference
in the programme of tills evening,
though there has been considerable
talk .about tin- town since the last
Hireling of opposition in the measure
on dual leading.
The system uf streets and house
numbering which has been sadly lack
ing, will likely h established by conn
ill this evening.
Ai the report mooting of the Joint
fticts committee of councils, at
whi.ii Po.itmas.tcr Thomas and tho
local mall carriers were present and
aided in the naming of the streets,
nearly nil ot the streets were given a
l-aiiie, but i he work at Its host wa-.
only half done, because nf tho lack of
. good map. Three or four small
maps were on hand, but it was found
that there wore numerous streets
t'leroon that have since beep chnnged,
by additions, and the like, and the
committee found Itself sorely handi
capped. In order, however, to h,iv--thr
system ertablishod and tho houses
n.umbred before tho first of July. In
order to make requisition for the ad
ditional carrier for tlin coming year,
the, committee had to make haste, and
THERE ARE MANY ROADS.
The' Finger Posts Marking the Many
By-paths of Tresent Day Troubles
Seem to Point the Same Way.
Lack of Nerve Force.
Day by day the columns of this
paper bring new evidence fmn Koran,
ton people of the great work bung
dnie by Pr. A. W, 'base's Nerve Pills.
Why they accomplish so much is o.isllv
explained thoy atv prepared with an
eye single to restoring nervu fore,
'I hey accomplish this object, which no
other medicine In tho world has ever
been able to do; that's why hundreds
nf Scranton people offer their testi
mony. Mr. Samuel Hogors, of Xo, is Uyiln
Pavk avenue. Scranton, Pa., says. "I
was In a run-down condition, head
aches, nervous anil sleeping badly and
tho appetite poor. 1 was told of j)p,
A. V. Ohaso's Nerve Pills and got it
box. As a result I sleep and eat well
again. T am very much pleased with
them and glad to recommend them to
others. This I can do conscientiously."
I5r. A. W- Chase's Ncive Pills are
fold at Sfie. a box at dealers, or Dr. A,

W f-'hate. SI. 1')., ate on every package.
It Is hoped Hint the proposed system
will satisfy tho government authori
ties ami I hero will ho no further delay
In granting the mounted carriers, for
which there Is a crying need.
It has boon suggested to the Tribune
that It would bo pertinent to ascertain
tho leason lor the absence nf a nitip
of the city's streets, when one, an
swerable In every way, may be ob
tained from the Jlelawaie Hudson
company's engineer for $lnn. What
this map would comprehend would be
taken from the original surveys of
the town made by the Delaware &
Hudson company, and It Is urged, and
tUlto reasonably, too, that this would
siitlleo and it would mean the savin
of hundreds of dollars, the estimate
of tho survey by the city engineer
that has been suggested among some
of the cotmcllinen.
COMPLIMENT S'OR MR. PHILBIN
Carbondalo Man's Appreciation o
His Visit to Hnrrisburg.
It must be a source of great satis
faction for a representative at Hnrris
burg to hear words of hearty appre
ciation spoken of him by one of his
constituents who shared in his kindly
loilrteslos. J Ion. P. A. Philbin. o,"
Arehbald, the representative fioin this
illstllct, is oik; of the legislators who
has won sincere compliments for his
courtesy and solicitude for those of
his constituents who may have visited
the slate capital at llarrlsburg dur
ing the legislature's session. The
late.-;! testimony In this legard is from
Station Agent Hurton, of the Dela
ware & Hudson company in this city,
who was a recent visitor to llarrls
burg. Mr. liurluti had no previous
aoojunlntanoo with i:epresenta.tivc
Philbin. but it Is safe to venture thai
the latter was the warmest friend
ship of Mr. Uiirtnn since their meet
ing at llarrlsburg. Mr. Hurton, like
most vlsitois at llarrlsburg. was
utterly at -ea as how to derive tic
nio.sl interest and pleasure from hi.
visit. In 1 1 when he met Mr. Philbin
and Inforimd him he was one of his
constituents, this was a passport to
all of Hie courtesies and privileges of
the house and senate. Mr. Philbin
showed an eager solicitude for Mr.
Burton's welfare and by reason of
this there was nothing lacking In his
visit among the legislators.
Mr. Hurton is so well pleased with
the attention shown that he glows
with appreciation of ftoprosenlativo
Philbin. when speaking of his trip.
