,THE ONLY SCRANTON PAPER RECEIVING THE COMPLETE NEWS SERVICE O K THE ASSOCIATED PRESS, THE GREATEST NEWS AGENCY IN THE WORLD.
SCRANTON, PA., TUESDAY MORNING, APRIL 8, 1902.
TWO CHAIRMEN FOR
i:. 1'.. IIOBATHAN.
E. E. Robathan Was Regularly Elected, but
P. F. Calpin Also Claims Title to the
Office Oliver Chaiman of Select.
In Shakespeai e's tragedy of Macbeth
t Is written that there was a combina
tion of "dire combustion and confused
' events" on the night on which Kins
Duncan was killed. Such a combination
attended the reorganization of the city
councils yesterday morning.
Things weren't so very bad in select
council, where Joseph Oliver, Republi
can, was elected chairman by the vote
of Jlnlachi Coyne, who was expected to
vote with the Democrats, but in the
t ommon council there were no less than
two organizations perfected.
P. P. Calnin was elected chairman,
and William Lvnott, clerk of the com
mon council, bv the seventeen Demo
crats, aided by two Republicans, with
out any regard for established rules
and precedents. The two erring Repub
licans were later brought back into the
fold, and E. E. Robathan was elected
chairman, and Evan R. Morris as clerk.
The two organizations both trans
acted business at the same time, much
to the amusement of the large crowds
which had assembled, and when ad
journment was taken each chairman
refused to recognize the right and title
of the other to the chairmanship. Hon
ors are about even, the Democratic
organization having possession of the
minute-book and records of the council,
while the Republican organization has
the recognition of the administration.
The old common council mot shortly
after 9 o'clock to wind up its affairs,
and on motion of Mr. Gurrell re-con-sldered
the action formerly taken re
specting the report of the conference
committee on the appropriation ordi
nance. This report, which provides for
the elimination of the item of $600 for
the salary of the clerk of the common
council, was then accepted by a unani
mous vote and the ordinance went over
to select council, which also approved
the report of the conference committee.
It then went downstalr.s to Recorder
Connell, who approved it In its entirety
before the hands on the clock pointed
to 10 o'clock.
Before adjourning sine die, Chair
man Calpin arose and took occasion
to thank the members for the uni
versal courtesy accorded him dur
ing the year just ended. Mr. Paine,
us a member of the mlnoilty and
on behalf of his ussoeiutes, declared
his appreciation of the fairness of th'j
rhalr'H 'rulings during the year, and said
that Mr.. Calpin retired with the gotd
will of all the' members. Regret was
expressed over the departure of the re
The 'Republican leaders got together,
ami after discussing, the, situation and
.nuking' u nersonal canvass discovered
that they had lost at least two votes,
wllh the possibility of, a thiid. The two
members whaih'theytfelt'satlsfled would
vote with the' Democrats wero Thomas
W. Thomas, of the First' ward, am
David Evans, 'i now member from ths
Second ward, both 'of whom had at
tended the Republican caucus and
pledged their votes to Mr. Robathan.
Unavailing efforts wero made to bring
these two members into llni and just
before 10 o'clock 'came, no definite plan
of action had been formulated.
Didn't Go In.
The seventeen Democrats and Messrs.
Thomas and Evans wero gathered In
the rouneil chamber In the meantime,
nncl when 10 o'clock came, Clerk Lynott
called the meeting 'to order. The Re
publicans out In the hall heard the call
and they camo docking to the chamber,
but when they saw the two Republi
cans Inside they remained nt the
threshold of the door and didn't conic

the roll had been called, so ho hays, but
the Democrats insist that he c-niuo In
while It was being culled, jl any rate,
he stayed but a brief minute and did
not unHwer to his name. Jin was
marked by Clerk Lynott us being pres
ent, despite this fact.
The clerk also marked William Lewis,
of the Fifteenth ward, us being present,
when Mr., Lewis waa neither ill the

and marked H. E. Paine as being pres
ent, Instead of Lewis. Just what
prompted him to do this is an inscrut
able mystery, because Mr. Paine was
not In the room either, but was well out
in the corridor.
The nineteen members present, or one
legs than a legal majority, proceeded to
elect P. V. Calpin us temporary chair
man, and W. A. Lynott as temporary
clerk. Then Mr. Calpin was nominated
for permanent chad man and was de
clared elected to that place bv accla
mation. A viva voce vote was all that
was taken and no attempt whatever
was made to call the roll. Mr. Lvnott
was elected clerk in precisely the same
Had the Certificates.
Clerk Lynott had In possession the
certificates of election of all the newly
elected members and after the opera
boufte organization had been perfect
ed those of them who weie present In
the council chamber weie .worn in.
They were as follows: Second ward,
David Evans; Sixth ward, John Mc
Greevy and P. F. Calpin; Eighth ward,
T. J. Roche; Twelfth ward, Daniel
Galvln; Fourteenth ward, William Gur
rell; Eighteenth ward. John McHale;
Twentieth ward, M. J. Barrett and M.
A committee then waited on the select
council and announced that the com
mon council was in readiness to meet
in joint session to hear the reading of
the recorder's message and to elect a
city clerk. The partitions between the
two council chambers were rolled up
and Clerk Lynott called the roll of his
branch. This time his roll books show
ed that there were only ninteen mem
bers or less than quotum present, thus
proving that Mr. Calpin had not been
legally elected. The joint session was
accordingly not held but there was an
understanding entered Into that It
would be held at noon whereat both
branches adjourned until that time.
The nineteen Republicans had in the
meantime gathered In Recorder Con
nell's main office and began to discuss
the situation. It could be .seen that
the election of Mr. Calpin' as ehulrman
was clearly out of order because of the
provision In the act of 1ST I, providing
general regulations for the councils In
all classes of cities, which act specifical
"And all voting In the said select
and common councils, or In any con

councllinpn from Clerk Lynott, Tho
fatter consulted Mr. Calpin and that
gentleman smiled a bland sinllo and
told him to hang onto tho certificates.

the Lower Branch ot
CHINESE OP NIXED
The Measure Extends to the Philip
pines and All Colonial Possessions
of the United States Democrats
Taken by Surprise by Promoters' of
Banking Bill Senate Considers
Scheme to Reduce War Revenue
By Exclusive Wire from The Associated Press.
Washington, April 7. The house to
dny passed the Chinese exclusion bill,
after incorporating in It several amend
ments, which Increased the drastic
character of the measure. The prlricli
pal one not only excludes Chinese by
birth and descent,but all Chinese of
mixed blood. The" chief struggle was
over an amendment to prohibit the em
ployment of Chinese sailors on Ameri
can ships. An amendment covering this
proposition at first was ruled out on a
point of order, but subsequently, was
modified to evude, the ruling and was
adopted, 100 to 74, as amended. The
bill wns then passed without division.
As passed the bill practically re-enacts
all the existing exclusion laws and in
corporates with, them the existing
treasury regulations. It extends these
exclusion laws to the Philippines and
the other possessions of the United
States and forbids Chinese laborers .In
our colonial possessions coming into
this country. The Philippine commis
sion, by the terms of the bill, Is directed
to adopt proper measures for the" en
forcement of tho provisions of the bill
in the Philippines.
The conference report on the war
revenue tax repeal bill was adopted,
and the bill sent to the white house.
Late in the afternoon Mr. Fowler, of
New Jersey, moved to pass, under sus
pension of the rules, the senate bill to
extend the charters of national banks
for twenty years. The-Democratswere
taken completely by surprise. As1 It was
nfter the usual hour for adjournment
the attendance was slim. The Demo
crats attempted to filibuster, but a call
of the house finally secured a quorum,
und the bill was passed.
In the Senate. ,
Considerable time was consumed by
the senate today in a discussion of the
conference report of the bill to reduce
war revenue taxes. As passed by the
senate the tax on transactions in so
called bucket shops was retained. The
conferees struck out that provision, it
being explained that the house would
not consent to its retention. Mr. Berry,
of Arkansas; Mr. Bacon, of Georgia,
and Mr. Pettus, of Alabama, insisted
that the senate should demand the re
tention of the tax. Mr. Aldrlch, of
Rhode Island; Mr. Allison, of Iowa, and
Mr. Spooner, of Wisconsin, while they
were in favor of the tax, explained that
It could not be retained without endan
gering the entire measure. Tho confer
ence report was llnally adopted, 36 to 30.
Mr. Simmons, ot North Carolina, ex
plained briefly why. he should support
the Chinese exclusion bill, although he
frankly said ho would do so with Borne
reluctance. The exclusion bill was read
for committee amendment, the reading
occupying considerable time.
