Sanderson Has Issued a Call
the Select Council for
A special niPetlng of the select coun
cil has been called by order of Presi
dent Sanderson for next Tuesday even
ing "for the purpose of considering the
appiopriation ordinance and such gen
eral business as may come before the
Common council meet3 in adjourned
session tonight when the appropriation
ordinance will c'omo up for third rend
ing. On Tuesday night the Democrats
failed to support the amendments of
fered by tho Republicans to strike out
the $200 for carriage hire contracted
by tho ngent of the Associated Char
ities or to reduce the Item ot $1,000 for
mayor's clerk to $000. The ordinance
passed two readings without the votes
of the Republicans.
The result can -bo easily seen. On
Tuesday night the Republican majority
of select council will make the amend
ments and pass the ordinance on two
readings. After a third reading It will
bo stilt to the lower branch for con
currence. If the Democrats have not
then experienced a change ot heart
nnd will not consent to approve the
amendments, there will undoubtedly
be appointed a Joint compromise com
mittee If the compromise committee
doesn't agree, further procedure Is mere
There is tho possibility that tho Re
publican majority of select council may
not Insist on tho amendments offered
by their minority In the lower branch,
but such a course Is hardly probable.
There is a decided disposition among
the Republicans to have the appropri
ation ordinance adopted in about the
cundltion it was when received from
the old estimates committee nnd with

to It by the Democrats of tho lower

THEY WANT MORE WAGES.
Journeymen Painters Arc Now Agitating
with a View to Getting a Re
adjustment of tlic Scale.
The Journeyman painters of Scranton
have begun a movement to bring about
an adjustment of wages and with this
end In view have submitted to the boss
painters a proposition embodying their
grievances nnd demands and what they
will nsreo 'to do In return If the de
mands lire acceded to.
They first want a nine-hour day nnd
a uniform rate of wages of 25 cents an
hour. At present painters nro work
ing for anything they can get, few of
them receiving even $2 a day. Second
ly, they want an hour and a half pay
for every hour of extra time worked
and double pay for Sunday work.
Thirdly, they demand cur fare and
board when sent out of town on a Job.
If the boss painters will ngree to grant
these demnnds the Journeymen will
guarantee to prevent union men from
taking contracts and evening work on
their own account, which, the boss
painters say, Is the cause of their poor
business and consequent inability to
pay high wages.
Last night In Flnley's hall, Lackn
wanna nvenue, a mass meeting of
painters was held under the nusplces
of Division No. 118. It was expected
that James II. Sullvan, the grand
master painter, would be present to
make nn address, but he telegraphed
during the morning that he could not
come nnd so the committee secured C.
Ben Johnson, of the Sunday News, to
take his place.
Mr. Johnson made a stirring and In
structive speech on the trades unions
feature of the labor question, which
worked up the enthusiasm of the audi
ence to the highest tension. Shorter
speeches were nlso made by Colonel F.
J. Fltzslmons, editor of tho Snday
News; President William F. Kelper
and Secretary Peter Holden, ot Paint
ers' and Decorators' union, No. US;
John Devine, William Shopland and
William Ajrcher, of lie Carpenters'
union, nnd Philip J. Thomas, presi
dent of tho Central Labor union, who
was chairman of the meeting. Thirty
five applications for membership were
received from journeymen painters.
