A conference of city officials will ho
hold In the near future for the put pose
of deciding upon the legislation affect
ing tho city's Interests which should
hu Introduced nt the coming session of
tho legislature and tho passage of
which should he urged by the whole
force of the city administration.
While It Is generally admitted that
the "ripper" bill, undor which this city
Is nojv operating, Is essentially a su
perior charter there is no one who de
clares It to bo absolutely perfect. There
are a number of things which the
present city olllcjals, who have given
the matter study, believe should he
changed, and It Is more than likely
that when these defects are agreed
upon that City Solicitor Watson will
be assigned to the task of drafting
an amending act.
Mr. Watson, while stundlng by tho
"ripper" ns ti whole ami admitting Its
essential superiority to tho charters
under which most cities of between
100,000 and SOO.OOO are operating, has
frequently stuted that there arc many
contradictions and omissions which
should be cleared up. He has given
the bill perhaps more study than any
other person In the city, but he does
not care to give out any of the de
tailed tesults of his Investigations just
at present for fear some person might
seek to take advantage of them.
It Is expected that Pittsburg and Al
legheny will have some things to offer
In tho way of amendments to the char
ter, and It Is argued that this city
should bo right In at the beginning If
It hopes to have any say In tho mat
An Important bill to be Introduced
will be an act validating all paving
assessments made In this city In the
past. Tho passage of this Is designed
to have the effect of preventing any
property owner from slipping out of
the payment of his pave assesment
under Judge Carpenter's decision in
the Sturges casr-, in which It was held
that the property owner could not be
held to the payment of the cost of
keeping a pave in repair as well as
the original cost of laying it,
Several paving contracts with a re
pair clause have been let In recent
years, tho most notable one being the
Providence road and North Main ave
nue pave. Several property owners
along these thoroughfares have al
ready refused to pay their assessments,
claiming that they aro released from
payment by Judge Carpenter's ruling.
That Bond Ordinance.
It is extremely improbable that any
very gieat progress will be made on
the passage of the bond ordinance pro
viding for the Issue of $283,000 worth
of improvement bonds within the next
few months. The measure is in the
hands of the flnnnce committee of the
common council, the members of
which cannot agree on a report, and
there are so many amendments pre
pared by counetlmen that it looks as
If It will have a very rough road to
travel If It ever is reported.
Tho ordinance In Its present form
represents the best thought of Recor
der Connell, the members of his cab
inet nnd the leading members of coun
cil from all parts of tho city. The ob
ject. In mind in drafting it was to
serve the Interests of every section of
the city nnd any very radical amend
ments will not have the approval of
Donor of Swimming Pool.
It has been learned that the gentle
man who has offered to donate a ?20,-
000 swimming pool to be placed In Nay

probably decide to have It erected as
a memorial to his Into father, John

Dr. Jnmes Prlco Conducted Clinic
nnd Spoko Before the Medical
Society Last Night.
Dr. James Price, ot Philadelphia, one
of the most renowned surgeons in this
country nnd a specialist on female dis
eases, conducted a clinic at the Lacka

the benefit of the house stnff nnd sev

of suggestion and comment.
Last night Dr. Price addressed one
of the largest meetings of the Lacka
wanna Medical society ever conducted.
Tho meeting was held In the common
council chamber In the Municipal
building which was literally packed
with physicians. There were about
seventy-flvo In attendance, many of
them coming from Wllkes-Barrc, Pitts
ton and Carbondale.
Dr. Price spoko on "Plastic Surgery"
and tho main body of his talk was
technical but he made some side re
marks that were highly interesting.
He declared that if ho could have his
way he would quadruple the resident
staff of every public hospital In this
country and would insist that the mem
bers of the visiting staff conduct dally
clinics for the benefit of the young
The lack of a stiflkicnt amount of
clinical Instruction is one ot the morst
crying evils in tho modern system of
medicine, he declared. Hospltnl direc

this subject, he said. They give their
passive consent to giving the poor man

so poorly that they were never in it

by a score of -14 to 2, and didn't seem
to bo hnlf trying to do anything.
The Stars secured thirty points In
the first half, and In tho second, pur
posely gave the Nanticoke players
many opportunities to score, but the
latter tailed to avail themselves ot
them. Bert Hughes, the right forward

Now York city's general appearance
Is vastly different from what It was
during .the strike, owing to the sub

until the last hour of November 1C,

fect. President Truesdale of tho Dela
ware, Lackawanna and Western com
pany says his road alone Is delivering
C.OOO tons a day to Now York dealers.
The fact that the consumers bins are
empty and that the retail dealers have
only such coal as they can get in small
allotments day by day makes the de
mand exceptionally heavy. Every
body wants coal and that right away.
So great Is the demand that anthracite
is still selling for ns much as $3.50 in
advance of the list price of $6.50. Of
ficials 'of the companies' coal depart
ments in New York declare that It will

Not Selling by Pall.
Dealers who had been selling coal
by the pail nt stores or from wagons
are not yet back in this business, and
In the tenement districts where there

ensue unless the mild weather con

The continuation of the strike by tho
employes of the independent operators
in the Lehigh region is doing much
to retard the fforts to relieve the acute
conditions In New York. Fifteen per
cent, of the coal supply of New York,
it is estimated came from Independent
operators and fully half of this Is cut
off by the failure of these lower region
mines to open up.
Tho mines that have resumed are not
getting out their full capacity as yet,
and will not reach their capacity for a
couple of weeks.
These two things coupled with the
fact that at this season of tho year
the demand for coal Is, even under nor
mal conditions, larger than at any other
season, make it quite likely that with
the companies doing their best to re
lieve the situation, tho metropolis will
find itself short of fuel when the cold
Lost a Good Customer.
One of the biggest customers an
thracite coal has had In New York will
soon be one oj; the comparatively small
ones. This is the elevated railroad
company. When the strike came on
the company was beginning to equip
Its lines with electric motors. The ex
perimental stage had been passed and
the company was Intending to gradual
ly substitute electricity for steam on
all Its trains.
When the strike came, the work of
supplying motors to cars wns rushed
with all possible haste, and now on the
Fifth, Sixth and Ninth avenue lines at
least every third train Is propelled by
electricity. The loss of this trade to
the anthracite market was sure to come
but Its coming was greatly accelerated
by the strike.
