The last 1S96 session of pelcct council
and the 1S!7 reorganization of both the
select nnd common branches look place
President Sanderson, Republican,
succeeded himself ns presiding nlllcer
of the select branch, whoso member
ship has not changed. P. J. Nealls,
Democrat, of the Fourteenth ward,
wns unanimously chosen president of
the lower body, nnd John P. Mnhon,
Democrat, was chosen clerk to suc
ceed Hairy C. Hatton, Republican.
Malum 13 nn ex-clerk. Ills election
aroused the only live competition of
tho two sessions and was openly at
tributed to treachery by Mr. Nealls,
who did not deny tho charge.
The Democratic members of tho old
common council cnrrled out their threat
not to meet at 9 o'clock and consider
select council's amendment to the 1897
appropriation ordinance. The latter
branch passed tho measure on third
rending. It is n dead letter now nnd
the 1S37 expenses wll have to bo pro
vided by a new ordinance.
Tho reading of tho mayor's annual
message was heard separately by tho
two branches and is reported elsewhere
In, this article. Select council reorgan

Democrats, the same ns lost year:
In the new common council there Is
either a new or a re-elected member
from each of the ten odd-numbered
wnrds. Mr. Reese, Republican, suc

tho Fir3l ward; Mr. Walker, Republi

MAJORITY OF TWO VOTES.
Tho twelve Democrats nnd nine Re

the former a majority of two votes on
The old select council convened a few
moments after 9 o'clock and a com
mon council resolution directing the
settlement of ex-Patrolman T. V.
Lewis' claim for back pay on a basis
of $150 was concurred In.
The latest Kinsley resolution wns
tabled by motion of Mr. Durr. The
only negative vote was that of Mr.
Fellows. President Sanderson re
marked that he could not have enter
tained a motion to concur as the Intent
of the resolution was contrary' to the
law which makes It possible for only
the mayor to remove nn officer whom
he has appointed. Tho appropriation
ordinance ns amended was given a
third reading and passed by a party
vote of 11 to D, Mr. Robinson, Demo
crat, not voting.
Mr. Chittenden moved a recess for
fifteen minutes In order to be ready for
an appropriation compromise confer
ence in case tho common council Dem
ocrats experienced a change of heart
and decided to meet. Mr. McCann
amended with a motion to adjourn sine
die. The motion prevailed.
At 10 o'clock the selectmen appeared
for reorganization. Mr. McCann, Dem
ocrat, nominated by Mr. Kearney, wns
unanimously chosen temporary chair
man and Immediately declared nomi
nations for permanent chairman In or
der. Mr. McCann was nominated by
Mr. Kearney and Mr. Roche, and Mr.
Sanderson by Mr. Chittenden and Mr.
MR. SANDERSON F.LKCTED.
Mr. Sanderson was elected by a vote
of 13 to 8, lie and Mr. McCann exchang
ing courtesies by voting for each other.
Mayor Ralley then uppenred and ad
ministered to Mr. Sanderson tht onth

read by Clerk Lavelle after which tho
old rules were adopted and the meet

session next Monday night for the
flection of a city engineer and n city
Common council's doings were not ns
prosaic as those of the upper branch.
Tho nine Republican members wore
present and ready to take their seats
at a moment's notice beginning at 9
o'clock, but the Democratic twelve
failed to appear. They were at the
Globe hotel conducted by their col
lague, Mr. Flanagan, waiting to go In
a body to the city hall nt 10 o'clock.
At 9.115 Clerk Ilntton called tho roll,
but only the nine Republicans respond
ed. Tho Democrats were then In the
lower corridor waiting for tho court
house clock to strike the hour of ten.
They took their accustomed seats all
excepting the retiring members nt 10.UJ
o'clock and a moment later Clerk Hat

It had been agreed between Mr.
Nealls and the Republican members
two weeks nso that If ho was given
Republican support he would guaran
tee his own and three other Demo
cratic votes for tho re-election of Clerk
Hatton. Thomas Norton, Democrat,
also made tho same promise not to ono
person but to several. Ex-President
Grler, Democrat, had personally
.pledged himself to support Hatton ana
tho ex-presldent was the only ono to
keep his promise. So It was no little
suiprlso all around when later Mahon,
tho Democrat candidate was chosen
by a vote of 11 to 10.
HAD NO OPPOSITION.
There was no opposition to tho selec
tion of Mr. Nealls for temporary chair
man. The commissions of tho new nnd
re-elected members wero read and ap
proved by a motion that tho certificates
When nominations for permanent
chairman were called for Mr. Drier and
Mr. Regan named Mr. Nealls, tho nom

honor In a very brief speech. Mayor
Ralley then administered to President
Nealls the oath of office and the latter

istration to tho ney and re-elected
members from tho odd numbored
A motion by Mr. Zeldler to adjourn
to 11.30 o'clock gave the first Intima
tion that all was not right for Hatton'a
re-elqctlon as clerk. There was no dei
bate on the motion and It prevailed by
tt party diversion of 12 to 9, It was
then 10 o'clock.
Before leavlnu tho room Mr. Ncnlls
wns buttonholed by several Ilcpubll
canimemuer and asked If tho adjourn
ment meant that he and Norton were
going to repudiate their promises. Mr.
"No, sir; It's, nil right; I'm going to
do as I ngrecd."
Mr. Norton gave a like assurance.
This reply satisfied tho minority as

Norton not considering Mr. Grler
Hatton's election was assured and they

cess. TWO NOMINEES.
When 11.45 o'clock arrived tho session
was called to order and Hatton wns
nominated by Mr. Oliver nnd Mr.
Thomas. John P. Mnhon, tho Demo
cratic candidate wns named by Mr.
Regan and Mr. Noonc. The nomina
tions were then closed nnd Mnhon wns
chosen by the following vote of 11 to 10:
For Mnhon Gordon, Regan, Gllroy,
Flanagan. Sweeney, Nealls, Kcldlor,
Noone, Sheridan, Mcarnll, Norton 11.
For Hatton Reece, Grler, Thomas,
Walker, Molr, Wcnzel, Wlrth, Jackson,
The rules of last yenr were adopted
nnd tho meeting concurred In select
council's resolution to convene In spe
cial session next Monday night to elect
a city solicitor nnd a city engineer.
Clerk Mahon then relieved City Clerk
Lavelle, who had been acting clerk, and
read the mayor's message. The newly
elected clerk subscribed to tho oath of
office and tho meeting adjourned. Pres
ident Nealls when Interviewed nfter the
meeting by a Tribune reporter said:
"Yes, I did promise to support Mr.
Hatton for the clerkship; I pledged my
vote and the votes of certain others.
I cannot go Into a detailed explanation
of why I voted against him, but It Is
enough to say that a 'slick Republi
can leader who about tuns the select
branch Is responsible for It, not directly
through me, but others of my party,
who, because of tho man I refer to,
forced mo to party obligations. I am
sorry I could not do as I promised;
It made mo feel worse than I can tell
you but I couldn't do otherwise."
MR. ROLAND'S NAME.
Mr. Nealls' reference to a Republican
selectman was made to several persons
In explanation of his vote, but the ex
cuse gained little or no favor. Mr.
Ncnlls did not experience his change
of mind until after an Interview with
City Treasurer C. O. Roland In Mayor
Bailey's office during the recess.
Now that ho Is openly charged with
breaking his pledge to support Hatton
and In view of the publicity given the
situation during yesterday, the Repub
licans who were "thrown down" have
as publicly stated that Mr. Nealls not
only promised to support Hatton, but
agreed to remember the Republican
members nnd give them control of sev
eral Important committees. They are
waiting to witness to what extent the
new president will carry his break of
Evidently tho Republicans are not
mulcted with sour grapes In their claim
of "throw down." Mr. Noone admitted
In the presence of a Tribune reporter
that he might have been elected presi
dent as a Republlcan-Dnmocratlc can
didate. Mr. Gllroy and Mr. Grler say
the Republican leaders, were two
other compromise candidates.
It was learned last night that Mr.
Nealls" promises were not individual
but were made to Messrs. Simon
Thomas, AVenzel and Walker, who con
ferred with him as an nuthorlzed com
mittee from tho Republican caucus
two weeks ago.
THE MAYOR'S MESSAGE.
Following Is p complete copy of May
or Bailey's message:
To the Select and Common Councils of
tho City of Scranton:
With the close of the first year of my
administration of tho affairs of the otlico
of Mayor of Scranton, I find it expedient
to briefly review the work of tho several
municipal departments, and to take up
such other matters as may concern tho
welfare of tho citizens of Scranton.
THE CITY'S FINANCES.
Tho continued business depression evi
dences lticlf of the need of municipal
economy during tho ensuing fiscal year.
Notwithstanding tho wide-spread depres
sion and the consequent need for eceno.
my before mentioned. Scranton h.is rated
high in tho matter of rmuilcip.il debt and
municipal resources she stands In a posi
tion n3 envlablo as any city on this con
tinent. THE NEW ASSESSMENT,
Tho assessment which has Just been
made assures us of a revenuo for tha
next fiscal year which will bo more ade
quate to sustain tho necessary public ex
penditures than that of the present year.
This has In the main been accomplished
by an equalization of valuations which
raises our properties In the central city,
by the assessment of new industries nnd
the many property Impiovements which
nio Incidental to Scranton's remarkable
growth, and by the assessment of coat
lands which had not up to this tlmo'been
taxed. I deslro to call your attention to
the seveial ways In which this increased
revenuo may be employed by you when
you come to frame your appropriation
ordinance for the next year.
THE POLICE DEPARTMENT.
No function of any government is more
Important than tho protection of the Uvea
nnd property of its citizens. Money ex
pended for this purpose Is well spent
when well applied. Scranton's pollco
force has done amazingly well when Its
handicaps nro taken into consideration.

The next thing to do
is to beautify the new
home with a new Toilet
Set; the dining table
with a new Dinner Set.
Dishes are so cheap
there is no excuse for
anyone not having a set,
especially of our new
open stock patterns.

than twenty men nnd these are oxpected
to co that peace Is preserved In a. city
having a population of more than ono
hundred thousand, and nn area of moro
thnn twenty-ono square miles. Tho en
tiro force during tho past year numbered
but fifty men. Thnt -they have dono so
well during that tlmo Is, Indeed, a trlbuto
to their vlKilanco ond courage, and A ten
tlmonlat to tho KQtieral law abiding char
acter of the Inhabitants of 4ho city. I
would earnestly Urgo upon you tho neces
sity which still exists for a further in
croaso of this force. It Is a necessity
which may at any tlmo become, startling
THE Flltn DEPAllTMENT.
Tho gradual transformation of tho
scml-voluntnry Frvlco which tho Scran
ton Flro department now gives Into n
servico which I fully paid Is doslrnblo.
I understand your appreciation of this
fact and also recognize that tho only
thing that stand in the wny of u paid
department is tho lack of municipal rev
enue. The placing of additional perman
ent men unions: the several companies Is
working a gradual change, nnd Is the
means of giving us n steadily Improving
service. The work of tho fire department
Is closely allied with that of tho police
department, us It, too. Includes tho protec
tion of llfo and property. I would, there
fore, suggest that a goodly portion of the
city's Increased revenue bo appropriated
for tho Improvement of tho city's fire
fighting apparatus and tho employment
of moro permanent men. I would also
heartily commend to your consideration
tho matter of tho formntton of a new
company designed to protect llfo and
property In tho Ninth, Seventeenth nnd
THE CITY'd PARKS.
Wo have but recently received from
your honorable bodies a resolution asking
tho paik commissioners to submit an es
timate of tho cost of fitting Nay Aug
park with all tho most modern pleasuro
appliances, nnd of making It an ornament
and on honor to tho city. 1 npprovo of
this resolution with particular pleasuro
becauso it is directly In tho lino with tho
Ideas expressed In my inaugural mes
sage. It Is evidently your Intention to
follow this resolution to somo measure
hnving tho consummation of this work as
Its object. Pleasure places of a munici
pality, Instead of being luxuries, us tncy
are sometimes regarded, nro really neces
sities. They aro especially a boon to
thoso whoso condition In llfo prohibits
them from Indulging In tho delights
which como from extonded travel to the
garden spots of tho world. We havo It
In our power to render convenient, plens
ureaful nnd restful one of tho most beautiful-parks
to bo found anywhere. Let us
mako it so.
THE QUESTION OF LOWER RATES.
Some time slnco I received a largely
signed petition requesting me to uso my
Intluonco to have street railway fares re
duced during the hours when most work
lngmen go to and from their dally em
ployment. Acting upon this petition I
addressed tho following communication
to the officers of tho Scranton Railway
Scranton, Pa., March 1, 1897.
Mr. Frank Sllllman, Jr..
General Manager Scranton Railway
I received a petition signed by five
thousand citizens of Scranton which asks
ma to confer with you and to arrange, If
possible, for tho reduction of street car
fares o three cents during the hours
when worltlngmen are going and coming
As I stated In my Inaugural message, I
am In favor of making a concession In
the matter of street railway fares. It Is
my opinion that a yielding now to public
sentiment would aid greatly in the popu
larity of your road, would pave tho wav
for future concession to you, and would
add to rather .than detract from your
revenues. I trust that your people will
glvo this matter tho consideration which
it deserves. Yours truly,
James G. Bailey, Mayor."
In reply to this I have received the ac
companying communication. This gives
you both sides of tho question which has
attracted much attention, and 1 include
the correspondence in this message for
your future guidance.
Philadelphia, March 20, 1897.
Hon. James G. Bailey, Mayor,
Dear Sir: Your favor of the 1st Instant
to our general manager, Mr. Sllllman, re
ferring to a petition received by you ask
ing for a reduction of street car fares,
was duly received, and wo havo taken
tlmo to give It careful and proper con
sideration. It la our deslro to meot all
reasonable requests made upon us by tho
citizens of Scranton whenever It is possi
ble fftr us to do so with duo regard for
tho proper Interests of our company nnd
tho best Interests of tho city Itself. Wo
have, however, ulieady tried tho experi
ment of throo cent fares during certain
hours of the day for aconsldenible length
of time, and tho conclusion arrived at
after that trial was that for many rea
sons, It was not advisablo to continue tho
experiment. On account of the very ox
tonsho transfer system in force In Scran
ton, tho actual receipts of our company
during tho fiscal year ending Juno 30th,
1SW, averaged only 3 71-100 cents per pas
senger carried. During the samo year
tho actual cost averaged 3 M-100 cents per
passenger carried. You will see from
those figures that the margin of profit Is
exceedingly small and that a reduction
to three cent fares would mean an ac
tual loss to tho company for every pas
benger canlod at that rate.
There is, however, another feauro to
this whole question which is worthy of
tho grentest consideration If the matter
Is viewed fiom a bioad-mlnded stand
irolnt, and to which I desire to call your
particular attention. There is no greater
factor in tho development and growth of
a city than proper street car facilities
leaching to nil parts of tho city and
operated with regularity and a sufllcnt
service. A street car system cannot bo
developed and built up so as to meet tho
demands of a growing community unless
it Is prosiorous and profitable. During
tho past four yearn while the street rah
