The Ust Councils for the olu year were

before tney met; but the expectation ex

Bet-re Councils met yesterday it was said
that Mr. Battles would present a resolution
asking that no Hungarian or Italian be cm
ployed on city work; also that a gentleman
was to present an order relative to gas com
panies in general, and the Philadelphia Gas
Company in particular.
These rumors did not materialize, how
ever, the first because it was' unconstitu

In the Select branch Chairman Ford pre
sided, and ordinances were presented and
referred regulating masquerade balls and
the licensing newsboys.
The report of E. C. Elliot, of the Depart
ment of Public Charities, for the month of
December, was read and accepted. It
showed expenses for the month of 57,043,
with a balance of 521,309 40. During this
month the dispensing physicians attended
138 patients; made 375 visits; received 307
official visits, and supplied 702 prescrip
tions. There were 545 inmates of the City
Home and the different institutions.
Mr. McKee started a tilt by asking the
Finance Committee to report estimates for
appropriations for 1889 at the first meeting
in January. Mr. 'Getty, a member, said
against his committee, and they could not
report so early.
? Mr. McKee It is notorious that the ap
propriation ordinance has been held back
and then rushed through before its contents
can be learned.
Mr. Getty This is a year of general as
sessment and the appeals are not in yet and
the books are not ready.
Mr. Lambie then read from the laws of
Moses and the new Charter, saying that the
chiefs of the different departments shall
hand their reports and estimates to the
Mayor on the last day of the year, these to
be returned by the Mayor to Councils. The
whole matter was then amicably laid on the

Mr. Andrew Robertson presented the fol
lowing joint resolution ot Councils relating
to natural gas companies:
WhebeaS, The Philadelphia Company has

natural gas companies, supplying this city with
natural go, against the spirit and provisions of
the natural gas act of 1SS5. and
Whereas, the Philadelphia Company and
other naturalists companies furnishing Pitts
burg and Allegheny witb gas have arrogated to
themselves tbe rigbt to turnisb gas or not to

The resolutions were adopted.
The Committee on Corporations was in
structed to prepare an act embodying these
points, and an ordinance was passed author

A tilt then ensued between Messrs. Lam
bie and Robertson, the former desiring to
amend the Common Council resolution, re
lative to giving the East End Electric Com
panythe use of tfle city poles, while the
latter desired it to pass intact. Mr. Robert
son said the city got 300 times a better light
at 11,000 less cost, and the company should
be given a favor. Mr. Getty sided with Mr.
Robertson, and finally the company wss
given the full privilege so long as they

Interesting Facts Cited by Attorney
Tost, of the L. fcO. League,
ABOUT PROVISIONS IN 150 LAWS,
The State's Policy in Bewarding Prose
cutors of Offenses.
TO IMPKOYE THAT "HIGH LICENSE LAW
There is one taunt flung at the Law and
Order League more than all others. "Oh,
they get all or half the fines," some people
say, and hundreds of others at once conclude
that if this is so the society is in the work
of reform for revenue only. So often has
the allegation been made that it is perhaps
generally supposed to be true. Lately it
has ben circulated again, and is said to be
the basis oCa movement to have the Legis
lature turn these fines into a different chan
nel. The subject came up yesterday afternoon
during a conversation between a Dispatch
reporter and William Yost, Esq., attorney
for the Law and Order League. He laughed
about such a movement and said:
Yes, I see by tbe papers that some smart peo
pie are just going to ruin tho League by having
tbe penalties for illegal liquor selling turned
over to the State or county, and threaten to
have tbe law amended for that purpose. As
far as tbe League is concerned we have no ob
jections. About 520D will cover the penalties
received by tho League since May 1, 18S3, a
small item toward our expenses. Some of the
papers and many people seem to think
it an unheard of thing that a prose
cutor who takes upon himself tbe
labor, odium and expense of enforcing
the laws of the State should receive any com
pensation or remuneration therefor ont of tbe
fines collected and paid into tbe public treas-
mm. Hut- lirlaf .rqmlniillmi ef thp statistics
of Pennsylvania shows how utterly groundless!
and senseless is this complaint against tbe act
of 1835, prohibiting Sunday liquor selling.
DISPOSITION OF FINES.
By the game law of June 3, 1878. there are 27
offenses prescribed, for which penalties rang
ing from J5 to $100 are imposed, recoverable by
summary conviction, and one-baif to go to the
informer, whether he is a witness or not.
By the fish law of May 18, 1878, there are five
offenses created, and penalties from $5 to 850
affixed. One-half of the penalty goes to the
informer suing for it, whether he is a witness
Bv the "road law" of 1836 there are eight of
fenses for which penalties of from SI to 510 are
inflicted, to be recovered by an action of debt
and one-balf to go to the informer, whether a
witness or not. Under the road laws of 1815 and
1868 two other offenses with penalties of Soto
J25 are enacted and the informer given one
half. Under the general "peddler's acts" of 1830,
1810, 1799 and 187S there are seven offenses de
fined and penalties of S20 to $50 appointed, one
half to go to tbe informer, who sues therefor in
an action of debt
Under the "auction law" of 1859 there aro
four offenses with penalties of $50toJ500.of
which one-half goes to any informer suing
therefor, whether a n itness or not.
There are perhaps as many as 60 local "ped
dler's acts."almost every one of which prescribes
penalties for their violation, and provides that
the informer collecting such penalty shall re
ceive one-half thereof.
The"oleomarcinnelaw"of 1S8S creates an
offense and affixes a penalty of $100, one-half
of which poes to the informer, who may sue
therefor in an action of debt and testify in the
c?ss. Manv such suits are now pending.
The act of ISM prescribes a penalty of $50 for
taking illegal fees by Justices, Aldermen and
all county officers, and gives the whole penalty
to the person suing for it, This law is in daily
use, and has received tbe highest commendation
of the Supreme Court.
The Allegheny countv liquor law of 1872,
which was in force for 15 years, and until tbe
Brooks law came into effect, authorized an al
lowance of $10 to the prosecutor for each of
fense prosecuted to conviction, and as much as
500 have been paid to a single prosecutor under
THE STATE'S POLICY.
This list might be extended at pleasure. It
would not be a difficult task to cite 150 acts of
assembly of Pennsylvania in vbich penalties are
inflicted, and one-half given to the prosecution
or Informer who sues for the same. And very
few of them contain the wise restriction found in
the Act of 1S55 (under which tho L. & O.
League has been working), that if the prose
cut or is a witness be forfeits all right to any
part of the penalty These acts of assembly
show tbe settled policy of the State to have
always been to encourage In this way the sup
pression of those classes of criminal offenses,
which, bv reason of the number of offenders,
the extent of the evil or the difficulty of its
detection, are usually winked at by the officers
of tbe law. Tbe simplicity and speediness of
the retnedv bv a civil suit fur a penalty renders
it eminently fie for tbe suppression of illegal
liquor selling, as the experience of the league
I bare only to add that to expect the con
stables ami otber officers to exercise all the
vigilance and ability necessary to convict Ille
gal liquor sellers in tbe face of tbe hostility of
every grand jury and its unwillingness to tar
diet, and for no other compensation to such
offirer than the peyy fees amounting to from
$3 to S5 in each case, is asking too much. Offi
cers cannot do all that work without par, and
for "enmitj" instead of "glory." Tbe oldAUe
gheny countv liquor law which was repealed,
by the Uroocs law allowed $!0 in
addition to 'all fees. That was lit
tle enough for the constable or other
officer. And if the Brooks law allowed 25 to
the constable for each conviction (subject to
the Court's approval) it would be no more than
justice to the officer, and would secure the full
enforcement of the law. If the law is a c;ood
one it is worth enforcing. And the lawsl have
referred you to show that such has been the
State'6 policy in regard to other offenses; why
should it not be the same as to illegal liquor
