The mayor's voto of tho street light ing contract, which was awarded by councils to the Lackawanna Valley Rloctric company weeks uro. was a feitlle topic of discussion at last night's mooting of common council, thereby uridine another ihnpter to lite unique history of vicissitudes of this contract Last nlghl It wns a mrrtliiK of swords of llf roiiiiciliupii who arc In favor of the contract uml the minor ity oppot-pd to contracts of more than a year's duration. At the last meetliiK It was the latter who went under over: litst niRlit the others saw lie font starlntr thorn, hut they fought iKiiltif-t the InipendliiK danger and by tn adroit move, when piecsed haul, hey succeeded in hiivhisr the matter ml over for another week, thus Ratli ne time and strength for the dual ally. The iidiolt move mentioned was the iiakliiR and secondliiR of a motion lo adjoin n Just as the matter was to lie taken tor a reconsideration. The chair was not disposed to rntertaln the mo tion to adjourn and didn't until there wits a loud clamor of IndlRiiant mo lests from tlriso who would reject the veto. Hut not until the clamor ri-ow too loud to tie unheeded did Chairman Collins' ilt-niii"sH Rive way. He put the motion, and, council by a vote of 7 to I decided tn adjourn. This vote of 7 to t indicated also the vote on the veto. . Chairman Collins, Xealon, AVhitlleld and Kvans wore in favor of tho veto, while the expected votes against it were thop of l.oftus, Kennedy, Mur phy, Thompson, Stone, .T. H. Masters and .lohn Masters. Of the latter there wpre only s"Von, while It required oIrIh to pass the voto over the mayor's head. This explains the determined tlRht for adjournment: it was tho sal vation of the contract untlt tho next inootliiR at least. Mr. T'URllano was absent, hut how his presence would have figured in tho defeat or acceptance of the veto Is a matter of speculation. Tho discussion, which was prolonged until it became warmly Interesting, was opened by Mr. Noalou, Immedi ately after tho meeting opened. He called for a report on the voto, which had been referred at the last meeting to tho llRht, tiro and water committee, with instruction to procure from the city solicitor n written opinion as loverlng the history of tho contract from Its granting up to tho present time. Mr. Xealon said ho was In formed that one of the members of the committee had procured, and if this be true, which ho bt limed It was, then It was tho business of tho com mittee, of which he, himself, wns a member, to dispose of tho matter wlth . nut resorting to any dilly-dallying tac ;; '.lis. No notice or mooting, Mr. Nealon " -ontlnued, had been sent to the ilro ," Ight and uator committee and he was " it a loss to explain why the chairman : lid not rait u meeting, particularly in ' lew of tho fact that the opinion bad .'.rn procured from tho city solicitor. it happened that it was J. H. Mas erf, the chairman of the committee, .ho received the opinion and of course : a to lihu that Mr. Xealon's re- larks were so pointedly aimed, Mr. Listers, appreciating this, arose and y way of reply and defense dei hired hat he hnd not had ample time to all the committee together, put pur insed doing so this vek. Tills explanation whh considered by Ur. Nealon as only an attempt at ox ilalnlng and he renewed his attack, is It, were, by reminding Mr. Masteifl that .ho f.Vealon) met the former on the street severul times and was In his company also during the last two weeks, thus affurdlng him amplo opportunity to glvo notice of u meeting Jf It had been Masters' Inten tion to call one.

Tho Incident waa hushed for awhile, until Just about adjournment time, when Mr. Nealon. dissatisfied and visibly displeased with the course the matter had taken, called for and In sisted that the committee dispose of It forthwith. The city solicitor' opinion wns in the hands of one of tho com mittee and It was only a question of a few minutes to consider It and pre sent a report. During tho discussion a motion to adjourn was made and sec onded among those In favor of the three yeats' contract. In the mean tlmo Sir. Nealon, Mr. Mvans alii Mr. Whitfield were clamoring for a meet ing of the committee, while the others worn crying more loudly for the putting of the motion to adjourn, claiming It had precedence. Chairman Collins was reluctant to put the motion, lie was In favor of disposing of tho veto, but there was such a cry from tho oilier side that to escape fioni th" qunndry ho put the motion to adjourn, which was carried by tho vote of seven to four, as mentioned before. The veto will be acted upon In tho meantime and should come up at tho next meeting. September 'IX The Martin Dougherty Tine. Among the other matters discussed long before being disposed of was the resolution remitting the line of $10 Impeded on Martin Dockerty by Alder man Uelavan for an alleged violation of tho ordinance against fast driving.
