iflE OKDINA5CE WA8 REFERRED BACK
- The Select Council of Allegheny City held
a special meeting Jut night to consider the
report of the Finance Committee on the bond
question. The city had authorixed a loan at
3i per cent, hut there were no bidders, and
additional legislation tras needed.
Mr. Snaman, from the Finance Commit
tee, presented an ordinance repealing the or
dinance anthorizinc the issuing of 4117,000 re
newal bonds bearing 8KPr cent interest It
wis passed. He then presented an ordinance for
issuing SU7.000 renewal bonds at 4K per cent.
Mr. Snaman also presented an ordinance for
issuing $25,000 of park bonds.tbe proceeds to be
used only to improve Monument HilL There
was no debate on the subject, and the ordinance
was passed unanimously. A. resolution trans,
ferring 15,000 from the contingent fund to the
streot and sewer fund, recommended by the
Finance Committee, was also adopted.
Under a suspension of the rales Mr. Einstein
oftered an ordinance for grading, paring and
curbing Braddockstreet, which was referred to
the proper committee.
IKE STREET TRACKS.
Jdr.Walther called up the ordinance giving
the Pittsburg, Allegheny and Manchester
Traction Company the right to use the streets
J now1 used by the Pittsburg, Allegheny and
Manchester Bailway Company and the Union
Passenger Railway Company. Mr. Hartman
opened his speech by saying that he wanted to
see' the roads improved, but he thought it time
that there should be an improvement that
v -would enable all the companies to run on two
I tracks on Ohio street, instead of on four, as at
present. He'thought a change should be made
in the ordinance.
Mr. Snaman said this question had been gone
over several times. Ho complaints were being
made about these four tracks; he had talked to
an Ohio street property owner within a few
days and had been told that they had no ob
jections to the tracks. Mr. Henricks thought
the ordinance could be put in better shape in
relation to the location of the tracks on Rebecca
street. SOnth avenue and Bid well street. Ho
-wanted one track only on each of these streets.
1 He moved-to refer the ordinance back to the
'committee for this amendment, and to amend
0 that it will be necessary to change the Union
ne system within a year, a point that he
thought was a trifle vague.
Mr.Loewsald the company would abandon
one track on Bidwell street and one on Rebecca
' street and would put a track on South avenue
as soon as they could get the right of way. Mr.
Kennedy said that the new management could
be trusted to carry out its promises. It would
be difficult to get the points raised in this
amendment legally in the ordinance. The
Traction Company had no right to lay new
tracks; but Can only operate lines oi uccn"
companies.
THE COMPAKY -WILLING.
The Traction Company wanted to do as Mr.
sjr Henncks asked, and would come into Councils
i and ask that the right to do the things be
given not to the Traction Company, but to the
old street car company.
Mr. Henricks maintained that the wording of
the ordinance was ambiguous and did nof re
quire, absolutely, the changing of the Union
line to a rapid transit system.
Mr. Henncks motion to send the ordinance
back toibe committee was defeated. Dr. Gil
liford raised the point that the clause relating
to the company accepting the conditions of the
ordinance was so drawn that it, relieved the
company from all the conditions except that
with respect to the rate to be charged.
Mr. Snaman, after a brief consultation with
some other members, moved to refer the ordi
nance back to the committee. The motion was
adopted unanimously and the Council ad
journed. Holiday Presents.

The Westtartow Cswaanr Secore a Large
Order From Portland.
The Westlnghouse Electric Company re
ceived an Order yesterday from the Willamette
Electric Company, of Portland. Ore, for a
plant with machinery strong enough to supply
1Q.0W incandescent lights and 100 arc lights.
The plant will be located 12 miles from Port
land, at Willamette Falls, and water power
will be applied to generate the electricity.
This will be the first plant erected where the
current has been carried so great a distance,
and special machinery is required to accom
plish the work. By the use of ordinary volt
age too much wire would be required, and the
cost of the plant would be greatly Increased.
This Is overcome by using heavier wire and In
creasing the strength of the current. By the
use of the machinery to be used at Portland
4,000 volts can te generated in a single current,
or double the strength of the heaviest ma
chinery used in this locality. A brancn station
will be erected In the" city of Portland, where
the electric current will be regulated and re
generated to the ordinary power. Another
peculiarity about the plant will be the ma
chinery nsed to supply the arc lamps used in
lighting the city. It will be the first machine
nut out with sufficient capacity to supply 100
lamps. It will be built on the principle of the
sew arc lighting machine brought out by the
Westingbouse Company two weeks ago.
The entire plant, when completed and ready
for operation, will cost the Willamette Com
pany about 200,000.
WHEEE 18 THE COTTON?
The Railroad Companies Looking for a Cargo
, Lost a Year Ago.
S. P. Kennedy, Commercial Agent of the St.
Louis, Arkansas and Texas "Cotton Belt'- line
in this city. left last evening for New York to
effect a settlement of a $10,000 damage suit in
which his company is Interested. Four car loads
of cotton shipped over the road have entirely
disappeared, and it is supposed they have fol
lowed in the wake of Mr. McGinty, and gone to
the bottom of the sea. ,
The cotton was shipped about a year ago from
a point on the Denver, Texas and Fort Worth
road, and was sent east by the 8. Louis, Ark
ansas and Texas line It was shipped by L. A.
WJf 4 Co, and was destined to a firm of job
bers m Liverpool. England. It went over the
Pennsylvania lines from Chicago, and at New
York was turned over.to the Red Star line of
steamers. The cargo never arrived in Liver
pool, and the railroad companies have been
searching for it for a year. The cargo has been
traced to New York, bnt from there there is no
clew as to what became of it. The consignees
threaten to sne the railroads for 110,000, the
amount the cotton was worth at the time.

HOW THE! BURT SAVJKGS BANKS.
Banker. Hold They Should he Taxed With
Other Institutions.
A HEATI HOLDER OF BDILDING STOCK
The merits and demerits of building
and loan associations continue to be
discussed with more or less vigor between
their members and the savings banks,
and some of the former claim that they
are the commercial salt of the earth,
so tar as the poor are concerned. They say it
Is not altogether the abundance of money In
this section that causes mortgage brokers to
hunt instead of Would-be investors seeking
mortgage brokers, as in olden time, but the
fact that the poor are fast learning that they
may get mortgages withont going forma pau
peris as in the olden time to a lordly broker,
who exacted bis terms. Is suggestive.
It is also claimed by some advocates of the
system of "every man his own banker," that
the main cause of cheap money at present is
the fact that there are so many building and
loan associations in the conntnr; that they
have taken away a monopoly once held by
savings banks and brokers.
This is the view expressed by the largest
holder of building and loan stock in this county,
Srobablv the largest in Western Pennsylvania,
olding 500 shares whose par value is 100,000.,
A GENTLE ADMONITION.
He was too modest to give his name, but re
ferred the inquirer to J. C. Robinson, after
giving the inquirer the" admonition never to
take stock In any building and loan association
that bought property in it corporate capacity.
He then read the epitaphs on the tombstones
of several whose untimely death was mourned
by thousands some years ago. ,...-.
Mr. Robinson was too busy to talk, but he
said that, as the building and loan associations
of this county loaned considerably over a,
million dollars a year, he supposed they did
hurt the business of savings banks and brokers.
How much, he was not at the time prepared to
say.
Un the otner nana, a oaa&er uouku uouou
mitiu.HnnD vam nf nsA to the noor. He
claimed that all the advantages derived from
them would bo gotten from savings banks, but
at the same time he seemed to regard it as a
grievance that they were not taxed as banks .
are. which would seem to imply that their op
position might not be soinslgmflcant after all.
This banker gave the key to the solution of
the whole matter. In the first place banks of
discount are of little or no use to ihe very poor,
as, in the first place, they cannot give security
for loans, and in the second, their custom is
not waifted, as they are not expected to ever
BECOME DEPOSITORS
and are not expected to be of any use tp such
banks. He might have added, secondly, that
the average day laborer is not likely to be able
to accumulate enough before 60 years of age
to take advantage of the help given by savings
banks. It is here the building and loan'asso
ciation comes to his rescue. If he can secure
some work in the suburbs for $100 orJ200he
has the leverage to hoist him into a neat little
home within a few months. Supposing be can
save ?l 25 a -week, he -cau take five
shares in an association, and on them
borrow S1.0CO. Then. what he pre
viously paid in rent will more than
keep np his dues and interest, and at the end
of eight years he owns a bouse and lot of his
-own, paid for by a rental considerably less
thanie must hare paid a landlord. Instances
might be cited, but it is not necessary to do so,
as the proposition i self-evident.
Of course, to accomplish this there must be
a non-borrowing class, but the trouble is that
this class is generally larger than wanted, as
at present many people are looking to these or
ganizations as investments. There are over 100
of these institntions in this county, and tbelr
capital stock is estimated at over $80,000,000.
