APPROPRIATION ORDINANCE IS
IN FOR IT.
What Was Said and Done in Com
mon Council Lust Night Indicates
That Thero Is Trouble Ahead for
tho Measure That Provides for
Running tho City Building Ordin
ance Amended Members of Coun
cil Presented Chnirmnn Calpin
with Chair and Lamp.
The upproin'hitlou ordinance wus In
troduced in common council lust night
by Councilman Luther Keller tnul the
formality of having It go to a commit
tee und reported forthwith was ob
served but when Mr. Keller subse
quently called It up on first reading
council decided to defer action on it
until the meeting next Thursday night,
From tho remarks of tho Democratic
members It was evident that there Is
trouble ahead for tho appropriation or
dinance. When Mr. Keller Introduced the or
dinance and moved that tho committee
report forthwith on It Mr. Coleman
"They fixed that ordinance up their
own way last night," he said, "and
we're going to have u little say about
He moved that it be referred to a
committee for consideration. Others
endorsed Mr. Coleman's attitude to
ward tho ordinance until Chairman
Calpin reminded them that It was some
what unusual to refer the ordinance to
u committee for investigation, since it
was this very committee, acting with
the committee from tho select, which
framed tlw ordinance. It was custom
ary to huvo the ordinance reported, as
a matter of course, he said, und light It
out on the Iloor.
Mr. Keller' motion therefore pre
vailed and tho ordinance was turned
over to Mr. Coleman ns chnirmnn of
the committee lo make a favorable
report. As soon as lie received the
ordinance lie said:
"We haven't got n full committee and
we'll have lo defer acting on It for a
Mr. Keller, now well aroused, ap
pealed to the chair and Mr. Coleman
consented to make the desired report.
Later in the meeting when Mr. Kel
ler called up the ordinance for the
purpose of having it passed on first
reading Mr. Coleman moved lo defer
action until the next meeting and he
had a majority of members behind
him. The motion to defer carried. Mr.
Robathnn moved that the council meet
again next Thursday night and tho
proposition was agreed to.
Another ordinance that attracted a
good deal of attention regulates the
construction, alteration, repairs and re
moval of buildings in this city. The
public building committee had a meet
ing In the afternoon and adopted a
number of amendments which were
presented and adopted tit last night's
meeting. One of the Important fea
tures of tho amendments was the re
duction of the size of the fire limits
In West Scranton.
After the committee's amendments
were disposed of Mr. Sykes offered one
reducing the salary of the superin
tendent of the bureau of buildings
from $1,300 to $1,200. This move was
opposed by Messrs. Keller and Paine.
The former said he understood it was
the purpose to follow this up by In
creasing the salary of tho building in
spector from $750 to $1,000. While the
debate over Mr. Syke's amendment was
on he asked permission to withdraw It
and before anything further could be
offered Mr. Coleman moved to defer
further action on the ordinance until
Hie next meeting which was done.
BROMLEY AVENUE PETITION.
Tho petition of residents of Bromley

At the conclusion or the meeting a
big surprise was sprung on Chnirmnn
Cututn, who was married about two
weeks ngo. The big wooden curtnln In
the rear of tho chnlrinnn's desk was
shoved up nnd n handsome Morris
chair, upholHlered In leather, and a
beautiful lamp wore exposed to view.
E, E. Ilobathnu was escorted to the
platform and In a very felicitous little
speech presented the chair and lamp to
Mr. Calpin as a small evidence of the
regard In which ho Is held by the mem
bers of common council, Mr, Calpin
was so overcome that ho could srari'o
make reply to this evidence of kindli
ness on tho part of his fellow-members.
He thanked his colleagues and said
their gifts would be ever among tho
most cherished of his household goods.
DRIVERS QUIT WORK.
Hampton Mine Had to Shut Down
Yesterday Because Thoy Do Not
Like New Regulations.
About thlrty-Ilve of tho drivers em
ployed In the Httmpton mine quit work
yesterday morning, and In consequence
the remaining two hundred nnd ninety
mine employes woie forced Into idle
ness. The drivers object to the system of
registering their presence In the mine,
which wus put In force by the com
pany on February 1. A state law re
quires miners and. laborers to register,
through a peg system used, when they
enter and leave tho mine, in order to
Insure their safety In case of danger,
nnd In order that they may lie speedily
This system of registering has also
been put in force in the various mines
operated by the company to Include all
the employes of the mine. To this the
drivers object, and quit work, necessi
tating the suspension of operations.
The system Is this: A bonrd is in
place at the foot of the shaft, and when
tho workmen enter tho mine for their
day's work, each one is required to
place si peg In a hole opposite his num
ber. Each man's presence is tints
known to the foreman in charge.
When they leave the mine, they take
the peg out of the board, showing that
they are out of tho wdrkings. Ju this
manner every man can readily be
reached if there Is any danger.
The driver boys felt that this system
was nn Infringement on their personal
liberties and the result was that they
quit work. What the outcome will bo
Is problematical, but it is expected' the
more conservative men will demon
strate tho absurdness of their stand to
the boys, und that they will soon re
turn to work.
Instead of there being ,")50 men on
strike, us stated in an afternoon paper,
there are but thirty-five drivers, tho
others being forced Into idleness by tho
stand the drivers have taken. There
are :!25 men nnd boys employed In the
Hampton mine. Nothing has yet been
done In the way of holding a confer
ence to effect n settlement.
A SAD FUNERAL.
Remains of Mother and Son Interred
Side by Side.
One of the saddest funerals conduct
ed In this city in many -years was held

were conducted over the remains of
Mrs. John Foin, of Penn avenue, and
her son, Joseph, who was killed by a

Tho two caskets were lai.l side by
side in tho aisle and seated near them

dren of tho dead woman whose grief nt
the death of the mother had been ac

Rev. J, J. Griflln, the church being
nearly filled with sympathlzlng.friends.

Tho company put three new appren

moulders attcr having advertised for
some tlmo In trade journals. It was
stated Inst night that thero Is a short
age of thirty-live men nt tho plant und
that the apprentices were put on to
help 111! up this quota.
Some of the men became dissatisfied
because the apprentices were put nt

dissatisfaction until nil tho moulders

before a Special joint committee com
prising representatives of tho stove
workers' organization and the stove

gunizations they have the right to en
gage additional apprentices if unable
to secure capable workmen.
The relations existing between the
officials of tho Scranton Stove com
pany and Its employees have always
been extremely cordial and this Is the

County Commissioners So Decide Re
garding the Ballots.
At the last election the people of tho

pare the ballots for local elections.
The Lackawanna commissioners were
hesitating as to whether or not they

was decided the commissioners should

ANOTHER SUCCESSFUL RECITAL.
It Wns the Thirty-eighth In tho
Tho Conservatory of Music has given
many successful recitals und tho one
given Inst evening In Guernsey hnll cer
tainly ranks with the most successful.
This wns IhQ thirty-eighth hi tho Con
servatory's series. Tho popularity of
these recitals was again shown by nn
audience which completely filled tho
hnll nnd corridors, and many persons
wero turned away.
Tho programme published In the pa
pers announced that the usual purely
pianoforte recital would bo varied by
the singing of Muster Dnvld Perkins,
of Wllkes-Barro, but on account of Ill
ness ho was not present.
When tho programme was announced
to begin eight lads nnd young men
filed up to the four pianos and pro
cee'ded to play nn ensemble selection
by Mayhtlli. Tho participants wero
James Beard, jr., Orcn Christian, Au
gust Hoffman, Floyd Hunter, of Jor
mynj Fred Kosstnan, William McKee,
Arctic Suxe, nnd Edwin Sweet, In
pianoforte study the female sex is
largely In tho majority, and the sight
of so many young men (representatives
of tho large number of youths now
studying In tho Conservatory) engaged
In pianoforte playing, wns decidedly
novel. The closing number, a move
ment from Dlubelll's Sonntlnn, opus
.12. was played In the same way by
eight young ladles; the Misses Bedford,
Doty, Hessler, Kingsbury, .KaUfhoid,
Law, Schluger and Paterson.
Gwlllym James, of Hyde Park, and
Jumes Beard, jr., of Scranton, two
young luds, appeared for the first tlmo
In solo numbers. Anna Wahl, 11. tal
ented little girl, plnyed four selec
tions In excellent stylo. Stella Fuhey,
Anna Hand, Eva Marsh and Anna
Speleher, played In concert at four
pianos two exceedingly pretty pieces
by Webb and Jadassohn. Other solo
numbers were played by the Misses
Slay Bower, Flora Kaufhold, Norma
Johns, of Taylor; Genevieve Ehrgood-,
of Dumnore; Edith Doty, of South
Scranton; Bertha Kingsbury, of Hnr
rlsburg: Ethel Watklns, of Hyde Park,
and Grace Gerlock, of Scranton.
AVithout exception every selection
was extremely well played, and gave
great credit to the Conservatory train
ing. Tho last named gave the most
ambitious number on the programme,
"A Norwegian Bridal Procession Pass
ing By," by Grieg, and gave evidence
in technique, phrasing and expression
of a well-developed musical tem
perament. The extreme thoroughness of the
Conservatory training was also shown
In the playing of four young girls,
Maud Norse, Grace Underwood, Emily
AVlleox and Margaret Zerbe. In a selec
tion from memory, in the three major
keys usked for by the audience, D ma
jor, B major and C sharp major.
FOUR MORE RECRUITS.
