EQuTBREL HILL ELECTRIC 10AD 0. K.
The election being over, proceedings in
Councils "were so dull at the opening yester
jlsy that the chambers most of the time had
much to remind one of opium joints at 7
o'clock A. M. The matter that attracted
most attention was the appropriation bill.
Host people craned their necks as the clock
showed a quarter past convening time, and
Mr. Ferguson predicted that his throat
would be rasped, as he thought it would
come in at the last moment and must be
swallowed without trimming, bat it didn't
come. At 2:25 a quorum was short by four
members, but two minutes' sharp scratching
Ihe first' thing that roused attention in
Select Council was a report from Chief of
Department ofJublic Safety Brown, giving
the information asked regarding the pur
chase of hose during last year. The report

Mayor as Incorrect, as inspection will
Pittsburg, February 21, 18S9.
To tbe President and Members of Select Council:
Gejttlemex In answer to your resolution
of February 11, 1889, in reference to the hose.
I beg leave to say that during tbe year 1SSS this
department purchased 6,000 feet of three-inch
hose. This was purchased on April 20. 1SS8, in
compliance with advertisement and proposals
made therefor by the Department of Awards,
at which time there were but two bids, that of
tbe Eureka Hose Company for three-inch
circular seamless multiple rubber-lined cotton
hose, made of the best Gulf cotton, three
inches in diameter, with standard fire depart
ment couplings attached. The bid of the said
Eureka Hose Company was $1 10 per foot.
A CHANCE TO JUDGE.
At the same time the Department of Awards
received a bid from H. L. Childs & Co. for and
on behalf of the Baker Fabric Fire Hose Com
pany, of tbe city of New York, their bid being
$1 20 per foot. The original samples are here
with submitted to your honorable body.
I also hereto attach and make part of this re
port a detailed statement of the number of
feet of hose now owned by the department per
company, showinc the number of feet in good,
fair and worn out condition.
The usual cuarantee' of the Eureka Hose
Company Is for a term of five years. That of
the Baker Hose Company, H. L. Childs & Co.,
agents, being for a term of SS months.
The hose purchased for the department dur
ing my term has given, so far, perfect satis
faction An actual test demonstrated that the
3-inch hose would throw 40 percent more
water than the 2-mch hose; that the strain
upon the machinery is much less; and it is my
desire, as hose may be needed from time to
time in the future, to equip the bureau with
3-inch hose instead of 2K-inch.
I would respectfully ask your personal
examination of the two samples submitted.
Tbe Eureka hose is submitted without the
rubber nlngsoas. to show the construction,
etc. TbU' the Baker has tbe rubber lining
I further desire to state that the statement
made by His Honor, the Mayor, in a recent
communication to your honorable bodies in re
lation to the fire hose, is, so far as the depart
ment is concerned, a misstatement of facts.
The exact amount of money expended for hose
during the year 18SS was $6,600, as appears of
record in the Controller's office.
For what may have been done by the Board
of Fire Commissioners previous to my admin
istration I am in no way responsible; but I pre
sume, from the character and standing of the
gentlemen constituting the Fire Commission,
the money at their disposal was judiciously ex
pended. Respectfully yours. J. O. Brown,
Chief of the Department ot Public Saiety.
DOTV3T TO DETAILS.
Pittsburg, February 23, 18S9.
To J. O. Brown, Esq., 'Chief of Department or
Dear Bnt I herewith attach statement of
hose per company, showinc number of feet and
condition thereof, a recapitulation of which is
In good condition.,. 16,100
In fair condition.'. 7,400
In worn-out condition 10,750
Tbe territorial extent of the city of Pitts
burg being something like 29 square miles,
water plugs in many parts of the city being a
great distance apart, it is often necessary at
fires to use more than 1,000 feet.
In order to secure sufficient water there
should be at least 2,400 feet of rood hose in
every engine house in the city. This would re
quire 40,800 feet of hose.
Very respectfully submitted,
E. De IiAssrs,
Chief Clerk Bureau of Fire.

The report also includes a tabulated state
ment of the work done by Engine Company
2o. 2, showing that the" company was in
service 903 hours and 43 minutes; and a
tatement showing that irom 1878 to 1888
company No. 2 had burst 92 sections of
Dr. Evans called attention to the fact that
the report was deficient in that, while
stating that the Eureka guaranteed its hose
for five years, Council was informed that
from 6,000 to 10,000 feet were bought each
year, bnt nothing was said as to what be
came of an evident accumulation, or loss,
or something else.
TBE COMMISSION JLND ITS HEIR.
Mr. Robertson defended Mr. Brown and
bis report, stating that he was not obliged
to go beyond the life of bis department
Mr. Evans The Chief is the legal heir of
tbe Fire Commission. I know by 10 or 12
years' experience that we have been buying
tbe amount of hose I stated, and I would
like to know what has become of it. lam
curious to know, and so are others, what be
comes of hose guaranteed for five years, and
I think the Chief ought to learn irom Chief
Evans on the subject.
The report was received and filed, and no
probing suggestions were entertained,
A vast amount of street opening and
other ordinances were put through finally
in bundles, and then there was. an awaken
ing caused by the ordinance' lo regulate
balls, masked balls, Yellow Dog and Mark
Twain Eod and Gun Club socials, etc It
required that the Department of Public
Safety have three days' time to enable it to
judge of the character of such entertain
ments and that all balls pay a fee of 525 for
each 24 hours of their' existence, fine and
imprisonment to follow infractions.
Sir. McKee raised the point that a corpo
ration could not be imprisoned, and that
the ordinance to be effective must make the
parties representing the corporation fineable
and imprisonable, and he offered an amend
ment to that effect.
Mr. Lambie further offered to amend M r.
McKee that $25 fee should be charged for
masked and but 55 for other balls.
Mr. Skelton wanted an ordinance that
would not permit masked balls at all. He
wanted to avoid even the appearance of
evil. He was opposed to .all bails, as officers
could not be depended on to do their duty.
He denounced the license provision as
blood money. City officials were in attend
ance at the Mark Twain Eod and Gun Club
ball lending their sanction.
Mr. Robertson interrupted tosay that Mr.
Skelton stopped short of the logical conclu
sion and wanted to know why he allowed
license of any kind, and Mr. Skelton said
that he would not if he had the power. Mr.
Bobertson concluded by offering .an amend
ment that the provision should not applyNto
purely social affairs.
ONE SEASON FOE IT.
Dr. Evans thought the ordinance a good
thing, but he could not understand why the
police could not have suppressed the disor
der at the M. T. K. & G. ball.
Mr. Sullivan came back with the argu
ment of like priest, like people. He under
stood that the conduct of city officials at the
ball in question was fully as disgraceful as
that of other people present. He would
have no masked balls at all. The organiza
tion in question could pay $500 license as
easily as some poor young men could pay f5
for innocent relaxation ot this Kind.
Mr. Kobertson defended the ordinance on
the ground that it placed responsibility for
such things on a department thai could be
Mr. McKee's amendment was defeated by
a vote of 11 to 11, so that it left the Stand
ard Oil Companv liable to imprisonment it
if held a ball without a license and refused
to pav its fine.
Mr. Lambie pressed bis amendment and'
ucmanueu me ayes anu noes, buyiuy, 11c
wanted to know who were and who were not
in favor or morality. This raised quite an
animated protest,' as Mr. Sullivan coupled
houses of ill-fame in connection, and both
Mr. Skelton and Mr. Getty took exceptions,
though not exactly assigning the same rea
sons. Mr. Lambie's amendment was de
feated, 15 to 11.
Mr. Bobertson next offered an amendment
that the ordinance should not apply to
private or charity balls, the authority
designated to be the judge of the character
of the entertainment proposed.
Mr. Lambie offered an amendment to the
amendment to exclude masked balls.
The amendment prevailed, 15 to 12, Mr.
Sullivan voting lor it.
Mr. Frew next came in with an amend
ment to strike out everything relative to
masked balls, and also to strike out the
provision requiring a license of $25, leaving
the matter simply under the control of the
Board of Public Safety.
This brought out Mr. Getty .in full
strength. In the first place, he gave the
city officials a bill of moral health, and said
politicians were obliged to attend such
balls or get left. They will go to church or
to the masked ball to get votes. Said he:
"I would have been there if I deemed it
necessary in my canvass. In well-regulated
families daughters do not ask to be allowed
to go to balls where they will be marked and
AS TO POLICE SUPERVISION.
Dr. Evans held there should be police su
pervision of public balls and people who
want them should pay for it, and Mr.
Hollands and several other people assured
him that at present they were required to
Mr. Bobertson moved an amendment to
the amendment making the fee $5 instead of
$25, but his amendment was voted down.
Mr. Getty came to the fore again and told
what good times he and the other old boys
had in their youth when they took their
sweethearts to masked balls 20 and 25 years
ago, and demanded that the youth of the
present day should be allowed equal privi
leges with their progenitors.
Mr. Frew finally called for the ayes and
noes on his amendment, and it prevailed, 17
to 10, amid an expiring kick fromMr. Skel
ton. At this juncture a motion was carried
to adjourn, and as the oidinance now stands
it simply gives the Board of Public Safety
control, and thus places the responsibility,
should it pass.
A special meeting of Select Council is
called for to-morrow afternoon to clear the
desks of last year's business.
The financial report of the Department of
Public Safety for the month of January
was presented and adopted:

In Common Council on the call of the
wards Mr. Binder presented an ordinance
for relocating Industry street This was the
only paper presented and was the one
thousand one hundredth that has been con
sidered in Common Council during the
On consideration of the ordinance giving
the East End Electric Light Company right
to erect poles and string wires, Mr. Fereu
son raised the point that Councils could not
give the right to erect Doles on the side
walks, but the ordinance was passed by a
vote of 24 yeas to Mr. Ferguson's no.
ANOTHER ENGINE HOUSE.
Mr. Bigham called up the ordinance for
the purchase of a lot in the Thirty-second
ward for an engine bouse, not to cost more
than $2,200. President Halliday (Mr. Big
bam in the chair) moved to amend by pro
viding that the lot shall be at or near the
line of tbe Thirty-fifth ward. The amend
ment was agreed to and the ordinance was
laid over for printing.
Mr. "Wightman called up the ordinance
giving the Squirrel Hill Bailroad the right
ot way, ana motrea to amend by providing
that the road shall start from'Forbes and
Boqnet streets instead of Fifth avenue and
Boquet street, and shall be completed in 12
months instead of 18 months. The amend
ments were agreed to, and the ordinance
went over for printing.
Mr. Magee presented petitions from a
number of business men, asking for the re
peal of the business tax. Referred to the
Mr. Magee, from the special Committee
on Legislation, returned the Stewart grade
crossing bill, now pending at Harrisburg,
with amendments, which provide that in
stead of the city and railroads dividing
equally the cost ot making crossings not at
crade, the cost shall be divided by three
disinterested persons, when such crossings
are at streets already opened, or at streets
which have been plotted at grade. ' Mr.
Bigham moved to postpone until the hill
could be printed for the use of Councils,
which motion prevailed.
Mr. Wightman called up the Squirrel
Hill Bailroad ordinance, and, after recon
sidering the provision which changed the
time of completion from 18 months to 12
months, the ordinance was passed finally.

BMEO PAPERS GONE.
A Startling Situation in the Penney
Case' for False Arrest
WHERE DID THE DOCUMENTS GO?
The Suit to.be Called for Trial in Court
SHOT TOWER AflAIN, AND COUBTLETS.
That Murdoch (10,000 bunco case and its
attendant litigation never will 'down, it
seems. It has yielded several sensational
developments; and now it produces an
other. The .suit of Dr. Penney, who,
thoughtarrested as a conspirator to the Mur
doch robbery, was clearly acquitted, is to
be called in court this morning. It is an
action against Mr. Murdoch and Detectives
Perkins, Anderson and Todd, for $30,000
damages for false arrest. The papers in the
case are deemed very important
Yesterday Attorney Price, for Dr. Penney,
applied to the Clerk of Courts for the orig
inal information, warrant and commitment
under which the doctor was thrown Into jail.
Clerk Long searched for them, but reported
that these papers were not to be found anions
bis archives. The prosecution was referred
to Alderman Cassidy as likely to be in
possession of these legal documents, so
essential in convincing a jury just how the al
leged false arrest was made. But Br. Penney
says the Magistrate has not got and could not
get these papers from court without giving his
receipt therefor. They were legal records in
the trials of the Barnett and Penney cases in
Criminal Court, and nobody but those directly
interested in these or attendant trials could
legitimately have access to them. '
This loss was kept very quiet yesterday, but
it may be again heard from again before the
trial is ended.

shot tower. The first suit was brought byber
husband, George Grantz, who, in the second
trial ot the case, after having taken it to the
Supreme Court, received a verdict for JTCKJ

Why is it that all the leading actors and
actresses while in Pittsburg have Dr.
Charles Scott attend to their' teeth? The
answer is very plain. His fillings are
beautiful works ot art, and they never come
out. To those who have not seen his fine
work, we would say, visit his offices at 634
Fenn avenue, opposite Horne'B, and you
will be convinced. His rooms are always
crowded with patients, and in conversation
with several, we discovered that they had
had their teeth filled by other dentists, who
bear good reputations, and the fillings came
oat. and not until Dr. Scott did their work
had they received any permanent satis
faction. The China Store.
