Councils Refer a Bill Providing for
a $1,500,000 Issue.
A Franchise Given the Uorningside and
Highland Tark Eailwaj.
ANOTHER STEP TOWARD A B0DLEYARD
A surprisingly large number of council
men turned out to yesterday's meeting, but
what was even more surprising they were
all in the seats ready for business at 2:30
o'clock. Little important business was
transacted. The Free Bridge Committee
reported two ordinances without comment
One provides that at the February election
the people shall vote on the issue of
51,500,000 in bonds for the purpose of buy
ing and building bridges over the Mononga
bela river, and directs the Mayor to issue a
proclamation therefor. The other provides
for the erection of a free bridge over the
Monongahela river connecting South
Twenty-second street with Forbes and
Brady streets. Both ordinances were re
ferred to the Free Bridge Committee which
will meet on Friday afternoon to consider
By a unanimous vote Select Council
finally passed the ordinance giving a right
of way to the Jlorningside and Highland
Park Street Eailway Company.
Pretty Badly Patched Up.
It had been so patched with amendments
as to make it nearly worthless, but Mr. P.
Sawyer, who is the prime mover in the
scheme, was clad enough to get it, even as
it was. There was a disposition in Com
mon Council to postpone action on the bill,
but by a little judicious lobbying Mr.Sawyer
secured its consideration. It was passed
with only one dissenting vote, that of Mr.
Mr. Bobertson's ordinance giving the
"West End Electrio Company privilege to
light and heat that part of the city was
passed unanimously in Select Council, he
declining to vote because he was interested.
In Common Council it was amended so that
the Chiel ol Public "Works has supervisory
power over its construction, but was not
Chief Bigelow had another ordinance
presented in the furtherance of his boule
vard scheme. It provides for opening
Beechwood avenue from Frankstown to
Eeservoir avenue, at a width of 80 feet.
This covers a long stretch from Highland
Park, closing the X egley Kun ravine, and
with the ground already laid out south of
Penn avenue the boulevard is now more
than half mapped out
Objections to a New Incline.
Objections were raised to the ordinance
allowing the Clinton Iron Company to
build an incline over "West Carson street
because there was no provision for guards
or flooring to protect pedestrians on the
street below. The bill was recommitted for
Mr. King in Common Council wanted to
know if the Auditing Committee was ready
to report on the monthly statements of the
department chiefs showing their expendi
tures. "The committee has had over a
month to consider those papers, " said he,
"and we ought to know something about
President Holliday referred the question
to Mr. Thorn, of the Auditing Committee.
Mr. Thorn said: "We have not had a meet
ing. We endeavored to meet once but
couldn't get a quorum."
An expression of disgust overspread the
countenances of Messrs. King and O'Don
nell at this, and they exchanged glances in
dicating little confidence in the Auditing
