THE SCRANTON TRIBUNE-MONDAY, JULY 8, 1901,
rmrr t lu.i.if nwwtts-g.i muuji raw "-"
Ho Is Opposod to a Contract for
Moro Than Ono Yoar and Ho Calls
for a Joint Mooting of Councils to
Considor the Veto.
The resolution which the Joint coun
cils adopted on Friday evening, June
2S. nw at ding the contrnct for lighting
the city's street for a term of thtee
years to the Lackawanna Valley L'lcc
trie Light nnd Power Supply company,
has .heen vetoed hy Maor Kllpntrlck
Th&niHVor announced on Smut. lay
that fn accordance with his views on
the matter of city contracts for more
than one car. he had used hl veto
power: hut the announcement was
haidly n suiprlso, for It whs an open
seciet that hit honoi was opposed to
councils binding tlio city fur n longer
period than the life of these bodies,
which Is one o.it.
With the announcement of the veto
was a call for a special joint session of
councils for this evening, the put pose
of which Is the consldeiatlon of the
mayor's eto The mayor will send In
a' communication to councils which will
embody his views on the question of
contracts, and he will ask the council
men to thotoughb canvass the situ
ation befote taking any action
What councils will do, whether they
will sustain the veto or pass the t evo
lution over the majors head, Is puiely
speculative. Some of the councllmen
weie ceitalnl suipilsed when thej
learned of the mayot's veto, and theie
was Immediate conferring among them
as to how to meet the condition brought
about by the maoi's act It Is Known
that there ate moie than n few coun
cllmen opposed to a conttact for a
longer period than thtee jeats. for they
have openlv epios.ed themselves In
councils. One occasion wnb the night
on which the tltst bids weie received
and consldeiecl. It will be tecalled that
there Is a leellng which divides a num
ber of the councllmen and Ma.voi Kll
Patrick, and this may possibly cut a
figure In either sustaining u i ejecting
the veto. Thete have been othet ocia
slons, and one quite tccentlj, on which
council took an opposite position to
that of the maoi. and on questions
that came from the ma.vot himself,
and It is posMblo t lixt the feeling which
was then expressed will be given vent
at tonight's meeting.
This new phase of the vexatious
street lighting question has also given
it a new Interest and the attendance
of citizens at tonight's meeting will
undoubtedly show It

TURN ON THE WATER.
Tho Cry That Comes irom the People
in Behalf of Thirsty Anmlals.
There are many queries passed
round as to what has become of the
councllmanlc measure directing that
the water be turned on in the publlo
Councils did pass such a measure a
few- weeks ago. but why It has not been
made active is a cry that comes from
teamsters In behalf of the thirsty nnd
weakened horses, ho have been
forced along through the terrible tor
rid spell without the blessed accomo
dation of the public watering trough,
The sufferings of the horses are, un
der the most favorable circumstances,
severe enough during the hot weather,
and the absence of water at tho
watering places greatly aggravates
their troubles. When the measure
was passed, directing the water to he
turned on, it was somewhat belated,
but the long delay since its passage
seems unexplnlnable and there are
some sharp protests being heard on all
sides Whoever It Is who can tell
where the resolution Is nt, and can
push It along, will certainly Bhare In
the gratitude of both "man and
beast" as Mr. Dooley would say.

entiiely of ewes' milk and is a dis
tinctive pioduct of a vciy small district
at Rochctort, among the llmestono
mountains of the Cevenncs, in tha
south of rrame. The nit of making
Rochefoit cheese was perfected theis
at least nine centuiles ago, and it has
been handed down thiough many gen
orations. The most pedlar featuie of
Its manufattuie, anil the one which
accounts for tho distinctive qualities
of tho cheese, Is that It Is "ripened''
deep under the sin face In natural lime,
stone caves with which this icgion
abounds, and In whlth tho tempein
ture Is low and equable the year round,
In no other place can the cheese be
made to take the teal properties of the
Rochfort. Caves have been excavated
in other plates for the puipose o
making cheeses Identical In charactet
Istlts with the real Rochfoit, hut the
