Common Council Does a Lot of Dis
cussing, but the Champions of the
Contract by Adroit Move Put Off
Action for a Week Story of the
Peppexy Talk.
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
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
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

Chairman Collins mildly rebuked him
by declaring 'that In Important inat
teis like this one it was tho duty of
committees to act without delay.
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.
The alderman was directed to pay the
fine ovei to the city, then Dockerty
can make an effort to secure It. There
was a peppery discussion before this
was decided on, during which Mr.
Murphy spent some time In lauding
Dockerty as a law-abiding citizen ami
the like. '

Attendance at the High School

the work of instruction before them.
The attendance at the High sclu-ol
proper was ""fin scholars, and accord
ing to coniparl'nns made by city Su
perintendent (Jan. the number was
plinut the f inn a's on the opening day
)' lr.i.l year. Iteports had not been le
leived last night from the seho'iis
throughout the city, but It was learned
from other souices that the att-nd-anco
was somewhat light. The lethar
gy that the semi-centennial celebra
tions could be responsible for. might
' had something to do with the
school children's staying at homo. It
Is expected that by tho foie part of
next week lagging energies will be re
vived and there will bo n full enroll
ment of the scholars.
During the vacation period the
school hoard did heaps of work In tho
way of Improvements about the school
grounds end in increased accommo
dations, 0 ml the happy result was at
tractive surroundings about the
schools that needed attention, and
abundant room for pupils.
ThCre weie numerous minor Im
provements that went to make a coin
liundablo and creditable showing on
the whole, but conspicuous among tho
t uotislvo changes were those at No.

mould be true of nil school grounds.
At No. 0, the grounds have been com
pletely altered nnd the former uninvit
ing appearance has been delightfully
transformed. A now Iron fence has
b'on elected about the grounds. The
impiov'iiii nts at this school ate not
quite fiuli hid.
The principal change at No. 7 school
nnd a most Important one. Is the
equipping of four looms with slnglo
desks. This Is a move that tails for
nioro than passing notice, and the
policy (if the hoard to supply the
schools with this style of desk will
be connuended for many reasons.
