ORDINANCE INTRODUCED BY J.
J, COSTELLO. i
It Contains a Number of Radical De
pnrtures from the Ordinance Which '
Is Now in Force in This City Lot
Lines to Be Hereafter Established
by the City Engineer Penalties
That Are Prescribed for Violations
of the Provisions of the Ordinance.
Councitmnn J. J. Cnstello Introduced
a new building ordinance at Thursday
night's meeting of select council, which
was drawn up by Superintendent of
Building Inspection P. L. Blown. The
most apparent changes In the present
building laws, which arc provided for
by tho now ordlnnnce, consist of pro
visions for tho strict enforcement of
vnrlous acts of assembly, which have
been dead letters In this city, up to tho
The ordinance Is entitled, "an ordin
ance tu regulate the construction, al
teration, repairs and removal of build
ings In tho city of Scranton, and pro
viding penalties for failure to comply
with the same." The first section re
enncts the present laws, and directs
that building permits be tajten nnd fees
paid before any building operations can
bo Instituted. Fees for general build
ing work remain practically as before,
but an additional fee will henceforth be
charged for party wnlls, and the city
determine the cost of the wall..
ABOUT LOT LINES.
Lot lines will also be established by
the city engineer. Another provision of
the act of ussembly of 1895 will be en
forced, Is the taking out of permits,
for the Installing of heating apparatus.
Section II fixes tho salaries of the offi
cers of the department of building In
spection. No change has been made In
this section. The following paragraph
specifies that any building which has
been damaged over fifty per cent, can
not be rebuilt, but must be torn down.
Section 5 states that all buildings
over CO feet high In the fire limits, and
over 90 feet high outside of the limits
must be absolutely fireproof. All build
ings over 60 feet highland under 90,
outside of the fire limits must be slow
burning structures. By this It Is meant
that large, heavy timbers and girders
must be used In the construction.
In buildings In the Are limits eleva
tors must be enclosed In fireproof shafts
and otherwise properly protected. An
other elevator provision is that all ele
vators bo supplied with a patent lock
contrivance, of such a nature that when
an elevator door is open, it Is Impossi
ble for the carriage to either ascend or
descend. An act of assembly of May,
1895, provided for this, but tho act has
never been locally enforced.
Another act, passed in 1893, provides
for the safety of worklngmen employed
upon buildings, by ordering that In all
buildings, In course of construction, all
floors above the third must be covered,
both as a safeguard against falls, or
injuries sustained by men on lower
floors being struck by any articles
which might fall from above.
Two sections are devoted to the ad
vocacy of the matter of covering side
walks, near or under which building
operations or. excavations are in course
of, progress. Where building materials
are in the street, the ordinance states
that proper guard must be kept, and
warning lights placed, and fences must
be erected between the sidewalk and
any mortar used In building, so as to
save passersby from splashing and an
noyance. Fireproof shutters must be used by
stores and warehouses, and all wooden
posts and columns used In building
must have Iron bottoms. This will
largely prevent the rotting away of the
The following penalties are prescribed
for violations of the ordinance: Not
less than $5 or more than $25 for the
first offense: not less than $10 nor
more than $50 for the second, and not
less than $25 or more than $100 for the
third. Every succeeding offense will
be punished by a fine of $50.
Bay windows projecting beyond the
main line of the buildings are prohib
ited Inside the fire limits, unless the
houses are made of non-combustible

List of Them Has Been Furnished
by the City Controller to the
City Controller P. W. Costcllo yes
terday filed with City Clerk Lavelle n
complete statement of the unexpended
balances left, over from last year's ap
propriations. This was accompanied by
a full list of deficiency bills. The latter
aggregate $1.1,853.78, und the total of the
balances Is nearly $18,000.
It was the Intention of the controller
and the special committee which was
appointed by select council some
mouths ago, for the purpose of con
sidering the possibility of merging
these balances Into n fund, which could
bo drawn upon to pay tho deficiency
bills, to report Thursday night at tho
meeting of select council.
City Clerk Lavelle was on hnnd, ready
to frame a report for the committee,
but the city controller was unable to bo
present, owing to illness, and tho mat
ter was therefore postponed until the
next session of the select branch. It
will bo necessary, for the committee to
carefully review the balances, and de
cide just which ones are available for
A number of tho sums were appro
priated for definite, specified purposes,
which have not yet been executed, and
It is therefore impossible to in' any way
use them, except for their original
uses. An item of this nature Is the
$2,621.23 set aside as the city's share in
repavlng Carbon street. In unexpend
ed balances, the largest sum Is left over
from the city engineer's department. It
is $9,954.38. The Carbon street item is
included In (his sum.
Some of the other balances are as
follows: General city account, $109,15:
city controller's department, $52.64; law
department, $87.14; city clerk's depart
ment, $194.85; city assessors' 'depart
ment, $34.88; city treasurer's depart
ment, $324.47; city recorder's depart
ment, $21.42; board of appeals, $30; de
partment of public safety, $23.02; bureau
of police, $1,314.71 ; bureau of fire, $4,
569.16; bureau of building Inspection,
$31,39; bureau' of health, 94.C60.S1; de
partment of public works, $1,595.60; city
hall, $50.97: city engineer's department,
$9,951.38; highways nnd sewers, $398,47;
bureau of parks, $731.75.
The majority of the deficiency bills
are of small amounts, but there arc
three or four comparatively large ones,
which swell tho total. Among these is
the bill of the board of viewers of the
sewer in tho Nineteenth district, and n
claim of $2,496.11 by Julian Schult &
Co. Three claims of the Scranton Gas
nnd Water company, for a trifle over
$2,600, are also In tho list. They are old
bills, which were reported favorably

RESULT OF THE TESTS MADE ON
Director Wormser Is of tho Opinion
That It Would Not Bo Wise to Dls
connect Certain Hydrants in South
Scranton nnd Bellevue from the
1 Mains of the Spring Brook Water
Company nnd Attach Them to tho
Scranton Gas nnd Water Company's
By a recent action of councils, Direc
tor of Public Safety F, L. Wormser was
renucstcd to iisecrtaln what could be
done In the mutter of having the flic
hydrants at Connoll Park and tho
Hcllovuo Heights, supplied by water
from the Scranton Gas and Water
company's mains, lnstcnd of from those
of the Spring Brook Water company.
It was thought that by using the
Scranton Gas and Water company's
mains the city would thus be saved the
additional expense accruing from tho
service tendered by a second company.
Director Wormser ordered an Investi
gation of the hydrants by Superintend
ent II. F. Forber, of the bureau of fire,
und the result of this convinced him
that the Scranton Gas and Water com
pany Is unable to supply the requisite
wa.ter pressure In these particular lo
calities. RESULT OF TESTS.
He sent a communication to select
council, Thursday night, containing tho
following report by Superintendent Fer
bcr of the test, which he made July 29.

a. m.. 90 pounds; Acker avenuo und
Archbald street, 10.20 a. m., 90 pounds;
Dodge avenue and Back street, 9.50 n. m.,
120 pounds. The highest pressure of the
Scranton Gas and Water company was
at tho hydrant nt tho Locust street and
South Main avenue, at 8.45 a. m., 45
South Scrnnton-Glbbons street and
Stone avenue, 8.45 n. m SO pounds: Gib
bons street and Prospect avenue, 8.33 a.

pect avenue, S.30 a. m., 90 pounds; Win
field street and Connell street, 8.23 a. m.,
93 pounds; Saginaw street and PIttston
