BOROUGH COUNCIL ACCEPTS
THE NEWLY P,".VEO STREETS
The New Lighting Plan Was Referred
Back to Committee—Traffic Ordi
nance Not Reported for Public Dis
cussion—Members Donate S7OO
In the absence of President Revn
ders tbe local Borough Councilmen ac
complished very little last evening but
hear reports and to refer an important
matter to committee, which was done iu
the case of the new lighting system,
this delay being caused, however, when
it became known that the Harrisburg
Light and l'ower Company wanted a
live-year contract, instead of an agree
ment lasting but oue year.
At a previous meeting between the
Town Property and the Finance com
mittees of Council with a representative
of the light company the location of
the lights had been settled.
A call for the trafiic ordinance in
troduced by Burgess Wigtield in a com
munication failed to get it out of the
hards of the borough Ordinance com
mittee, but Chairman Shelley, of that
committee, made the statement that this
ordinance would oe presented at the
next meeting of Council,
The more than 40,000 yards of street
paving laid this fall was formally ac
cepted. The snow ordinance, intro
duced last spring by Councilman Wag
enbach, which has been slumbering in
committee all summer and fall, was
pressed to the front when tbe sponsor
of the bill was reminded by the present
fall of' the beautiful of his pet meas
ure. In reply to Councilman Wagen
bach, Councilman Henderson, of the
(Highway Committee, said the ordinance
would be ready for action at the next
meeting of Council and that the Har
risburg Railways Company, which is
largely involved in the provisions of
the bill, had assured him that any snow
fall during the time that the ordinance
is pending would l be taken care of by
A feature, of the meeting was a col
lection taken from members of the
Council to defray a bill owing the bor
ough by a poor family and which had
been presented at the meeting for the
purpose of having the borough fathers
exonerate the debtors. The amount in
vilved was $7.
The request for an exoneration had
come through the Associated Charities
and was presented by Councilman Hen
derson, a member of the Charities com
The collection from the members will
be turned over to the committee han
dling the charity work.

To all intents and purposes, so far
as the trunsaction of business is con

When State Chairman. Morris was
here last week he announced that the
State headquarters would be removed
to Philadelphia, to occupy offices at
14 7 South Broad street, which served
as a branch during the

the removal, and all of the books, pa

including former Secretary Jim Blakes

Chairman Morris and various other
historical impedimenta, were shipped
to Philadelphia. That was the extent
of the moving. Since 1892 the State
headquarters of the Democratic commit
