Little Ray Allen, who was so serious
ly Injured on Tuesday, remains In about

The electric lights which have been

vious method of Illuminating and are

ment. W. J. Davis, the Scranton mer
chant tailor, Is tho owner of the build
ing and M. J. Collins, of Forest City,

ent, will bs generally approved.
Sir. Holloway, who represents a
Scranton syndicate of capitalists, met
with tho council and offered on behalf
of those for whom he spoke to sewer
tho town, without charge, his propo
sition being that mains would be put
In on the principal streets nnd that
property owners would be charged a
certain amount per year for tapping
the mains and using them. He further
stated that tha cost would be one hun
dren and fifty per cent, less per year
to real estate owners than what they
pay for having vaults cleaned out each
spilng. The estimated cost of the sew
erage they would be willing to put In
lieio he thought would be between $35,
000 and $40 000. It was Intimated that
probably the surplus vvat"r on the bor
ough streets could be disposed of free,
us tho sewers would quite frequently
have to be flushed. The members of
the council appeared to be quite fa
vorably Impressed with the plan, but
requested the Scranton man to be pres
ent at tho next regular meeting on
June 2, with fuller details and n speci
fication of what streets his company
would be w llllng to sewer.

The secretary was Instructed to com
municate with our district senator and
tho representatives from this county,
and to protest against senate bills SSI
and 322, which are Intended to prevent
boroughs ftom competing with local
corporations, thus compelling boroughs
to remain out of the field or else pur
chase the rights and privileges of the
said corporations at any rate which the
latter may name.

New York, May 20. New Jersey Central
engrossed the largest share of attention
on tho Stock Exchange today and regi3
tered another sensational decline In a long
progress downward. The depression of
such a weight on tho market affected tho
whole list. The general list from tho
opening of tho market showed the effect
of the more serious phase assumed by tho
Cuban question at Washington. Ameri
cans were depressed In London nnd this
was said to bo duo in part to early sales
there on New York orders. New York
opened down to about tho London parity.
