TTnanimously Chosen at Joint Meet
ing of Councils His Efficiency
Publicly Attested.
V. K. Hupp,- whose term of olllue has
just expired, was last night unanimous
ly re-elected city enRlneor of Carbour
In connection with bis being returned
to oflice Sir. Kupp was given a llutter
ins testimonial by the councilmen.
Though only the councilman, Br.
Kletcher, who nlaeed him In nomina
tion, took occasion to speak of his 'effi
ciency, yet every one of the seventeen
councilmen silently approved of the
speaker's words, and would gladly en
dorse, orally, what Dr. Fletcher said if
there was the oportunlty, for no city
engineer of Cnrbondnle, it can be safely
said, has earned the approbation and
esteem of councils as has Jlr. Kupp.
When councils came tosether after
the separate sessions, Chairman Davis,
of select council, was called unon to
preside. When the nominations for city
engineer were called for, Dr. Fletcher,
of select, arose and, In presenting Mr.
Kupp's name, said:
"Sir. Chairman. I take great .pleasure
In presenting the name of F, K. Kupp,
who has proven so faithful in the past."
Sir. Nealon. or common council, sec
onded the nomination.
As Indicated in Tbe Tribune yester
day, there was no opposition to Sir.
Kupp. The roll-call was proceeded with,
all of the seventeen members present,
Sir. Cook, of common council, being the
only absentee, recording their vote for
When the vole was recorded and Sir.
Kupp's re-election was announced, Sir.
Puglinno, of common, raised the call
for the engineer, amid the hearty ap-,.-.p!nuso
of the members on both sides of
the house. The cry grew until It
reached Sir. Kupp, who was in his office
down the corridor. In a minute bo
rcann Into select council chamber and
' bowed his acknowledgments. The coun
.j.cllmen, however, Insisted on some sort
'of n speech. As was proven at the ban-.-quet
of Slonday night Inst, Sir. Kupp
."-Is a happy talker when called upon to
respond in 11 toast, but on this oecn
''sion he seemed overwhelmed with the
jklndly fueling of councils, in it very
,fi'W words, the earnestness of which in
dicated Ills feeling of gratitude, Sir.
,;,fKupp said that he honed he would do
nothing during his term which would
make councils feel soir.v for their ne
i.'tlon, "I've worked to the best of my
."lability," he continued, "to do the work
"of the city anil will continue to do so
'rdurlng the next three years. T ask your
t".co-oieratIon, and feel that If we W.ork
together, in harmony, everything will
be all tight." Slore applause mid con
gratulations followed his utterances.
jt, The confidence which councils ex-
pressed in Sir. Kupp by re-electing him
'was earned during his 'laift term.- IIo
(,. has been one or the most painstaking
'of city officials nml, above all, when the
.(emergency arose he pitched Into the
, work and labored the same as the low
Cnt employe on the street department
'iP'iy rolls. This devotion to his 'duties
could not but be recoenlzed and nn
preeiuted by his re-election. Sir. Kupp's
commences ills second term with the
utmost good will of councils and the
citizens nt' large,
It can be said that them will be no
, change In tho forces under Sir, Kupp.
htreot foreman John Kllleen has like
wise earned his re-uppolntment, being
n most valuable ally of lr. Kupp and,
perhaps, tho-most efllclent foreman that

Battalion .to Meet.
In yesterday's Tribune there was a
notice of u meeting Thursday night of
tho.Knlgjits of Father Sluthew, There
was an omission of the' word "Uut-
tnlloit," which would Indicate that the
meeting wus .not for the purpose nt
bringing out the new military branch

who will meet, mid the presence of

The News In The Tribune About the
Terminal Change Was Correct.
'Jim news which appeared exclusively
In Tho Tribune yesterday that the ter
minal of the Kite on the Jefferson
branch- was to 'bo changed from I3us
qtioliunna to Carbondule has been con
llrmed. Notices have been posted to
this effect, the change to take place on
Slay 1.
Tho new order of itffntfs will bring
fourteen railroad inon to this city, to
gether with their families, The order
affects two train crews and all ot tho
coal crews, leaving the way freight
men and those on the passenger train
service, only, to have Susquehanna as
their terminal. The change has been
brought about by the circumstance that
empty cars do not return by way ot
Cnrbondale, but over the Erie and Wy
oming through Hiuvley.
AVhllo tho change will benefit Carbon
dale, It will greatlyvlnconvenleneo most
of the fourteen men affected, as some
own properties In Susquehanna. They
are not satisfied, and have asked Su
perintendent Ames to change the order.
Steps Taken in the Case of Mrs. Kate
McNulty and Mrs. Mary Ellen
Steps were taken yesterday to prop
erly care for tho children of Sirs. Kute
SIoNulty and Sirs. Mary Ellen Jordan,
who have been woefully neglected be
cause of the almost habitual dissipa
tion of the parents.
Both Sirs. SIcNulty and Sirs, Jordan
were arrested Sunday and tnken before
Slayor O'Neill yesterday on. charges ot
being drunk and disorderly in tho
neighborhood-of their homes, on Hos
pltal street. The mayor did not use
much ceremony in disposing of tho
charges against the women, but dis
creetly lined them $10 each, with the
alternative of thirty days in juU;
Neither one had the money, and yes
terday they were taken to tho county
Now that Sirs. Jordan, who Is a
widow, and Sirs. SIcNulty are tempor
arily out of the way, as It were,' the
steps necessary to place the children In
some institution will be taken. Tho
little ones have been so neglected and
have been so exposed to grave moral
dangers by their parents' example that
tho authorities were imoelled to this
action. Persons interested In charit
able work have taken the Initiative in
the matter and will carry It to the end.
Temporarily the children are in the
hands of relatives, who will give them
the necessary care until their removal
to the proper institution.
