THEY WANT TO
THINK IT OVER
TROLLEY COMPANY TAX ORDI
NANCE SET ASIDE,
Mr. Vnughnn Is a Bit Dubious
About the Desirability of the City
Substituting n Mutual Agreement
ns to Taxes for the Ordinance Im
;pcslng a Straight-Out five Per
Cent. Tax Two Vetoes from the
Recorder Commoners Transact n
Rnft of Routine Business.
Select council last night postponed ac
tion for a mouth on the ordinance look
ing to a mutunt agreement between the
city nnd the Scranton Hallway coni
pnny ns to the taxes that shall be levied
on the company.
Mr. Vuughnn opposed the measure on
the ground that Its adoption would be
practically an acknowledgment on the
part of the city that the license ordi
nance of last year was not enforceable,
Mr. CIcmonR did not look nt It this way
and expressed the opinion that tho
mutual agreement Idea was a good
thing in view of the fact that It substi
tuted a sure thing for one that was not
at till definite. He also pointed out that
the lowest tax provided for In the new
ordinance would be productive of more
revenue than Is nt present derived from
tuxes on the trolley company.
The Importance of giving the meas
ure careful consideration commended
Itself readily to the members, nnd, on
motion of Mr. Coleman, action was
postponed for one month.
. NOT APPROVED.
The resolutions, with the exception of
the Inst, were adopted and the ordi
nances passed on first and second read
ings. The resolution regarding trans
fers was referred back to a special com
mittee for an opinion from the city
solicitor on motion of Mr. Melvln.
The resolution directing the city so
licitor to release the liens against abutt
ing properties in Section B, Fifth sewer
district, Providence, was returned by
Recorder Council without his approval.
Because of the fact that the releasing
of the liens would destroy the assess
ment, whieh cost In the neighborhood
of $3,000, the recorder favors steps to
have the sewer built, despite the diffi
culty of securing bUls.
Donahoe & O'Boyle bid to do the
work for 1.94 per lineal foot. Between
the time they submitted their bid and
tho time tho city was ready to have
them begin work there was consider
able of an interim, during which the
cost of labor and material increased to
such an extent that they refused to go
on with the work. Tho recorder sug
gests that If councils wants to release
the contractors it may do so, but it
should not destroy the expensive assess
ment already made. ,
The recorder's veto was unanimously
The recorder also vetoed the ordi
nance fixing the number of newspapers
In which city advertising shall be done
nnd authorizing the recorder to enter
Into contracts with such newspapers.
The recorder vetoed the ordinance on
the ground that councils have no au
thority in the premises whatsoever. He
quotes the section of the new second
class city law which stipulates clearly
that "the recorder shall contract with
not loss than three and not more than
four newspapers, one which shall be
printed in the German language."
"The provisions of this law," the re
corder says, "clearly Intends to leave
this matter in the bands of the city
recorder, nnd, hence, any ordinunee of
councils bearing on the subject would
bo superfluous and invalid."
Mr. Quinnan contended that the
"chaser" to the new charter provides
that no contracts shall bo entered into
by the recorder or other head of a de
partment without the consent of coun
cils, and, in view of this, the recorder's
position is Incorrect.
ItKFEUniOD TO COMMITTEE.
On motion of Mr. demons the matter
was referred to a special committee.
Chairman Oliver appointed on this com
mittee Messrs. demons, Merriman and

of the periodical overflows of the Pine

IN COMMON COUNCIL.
It was expected that common council
would deal with tho bond ordinance
last night, but as the finance commit
tee hud failed to meet to consider It
since the last meeting, and as tho chair
man of this committee was not present
no action on the measure was taken,

P. J. WHITE NAMED.
Fourth District Democrats Fill the
Vacancy Caused by Withdrawal
of Hendricks and Timlin.
P. J. White, of Archbald, book agent,
and former schoolmaster, one of the
best known of the old-line Democrats,
was, yesterday, nominated by the
Fourth district Democrats for the of
fice of representative, to fill the va
cancy caused by the withdrawal of P.
E. Timlin and T. A. Hendricks, each of
whom claimed to be the nominee of the
turbulent convention of August 28.
Yesterday's convention was hold In
O'Brien's ball, Olyphnnt, and was a
very tame affair. When compared to
the original convention it was n Sun
day school session. Sheriff Schadt and
ex-Sheriff Fnhey, the new directors of
affairs Democratic in Lackawanna
county, were In attendance and suc
ceeded In causing the proceedings to go
For a time It looked as if there would
be a repetition of the fuss which char
acterized tho first convention. While
Timlin and Hendricks had withdrawn,
both were at the convention with a
boom and each was determined to have
his man selected. ,
Mr. Timlin backed Chnrlcs Burke, of
Archbald. Mr. Hendricks favored P. J.
White. Sheriff Schadt was for James
McAndrew, of Archbald, but an hour.
before the convention was called Mr.
McAndrew telegraphed he would not
run under any circumstances. Jbhn E.
Mongan, of Dunmore, and William
Loftus, of Cnrbondale, were also of
fered, but their friends counselled on
them being nothing more than vague
Sheriff Schndt, upon receiving Mc
Andrews' telegram, proceeded to adopt
White, and White was the man. Burke
dropped out of tho fight when his can
didate for chairman, P. H. Kearney, of
Archbald, was overwhelmingly defeated
by the Schndt-Whlte-Hendrlcks nomi
nee, T. J. Duggnn.
The convention was called to order at
2.45 o'clock by Chairman T. J. Duggnn.
Michael Jennings, of Archbald, and
Harvey Loftus, of Cnrbondale, who
were secretaries of the August conven
tion, served In the same capacity yes
terday. When tho vote on temporary
chairman had proceeded as far as Roar
ing Brook and Duggan had 49 to Kearn
ey's 12, Kearney was withdrawn and
Duggan's election was made by accla
mation. Tho temporary organization was
made permanent and then nominations
for representative wero called for.
AVhite, Burke and Mongan were nomi
nated without speechmaklng. Burke
withdrew his name "in the Interests of
harmony." Mongan remained In the
field until White had received nineteen
votes to his none, when he withdrew.
White's nomination was then made by
Mr, White was declared elected, nnd,
after ho had made a brief, well-worded
speech, the convention adjourned.

Councilman Luther Keller was all pre
pared last night to make a fight on the
ordinance If it came up for consider
ation. He had three typewritten pages
full of amendments to tho measure.
These provided, among other things, for

sion of the franchise to the city at the
end of a given time.
