AMENDMENTS WERE
NOT APPROVED
Common Council Decided that Telephone
Ordinance Was Good Enough.
WERB FEARFUL OF ANY DELAY
That Wm tlio Argument Advnnccd for
'Voting Aenlnst the Amondmonti
Offered by Mr. Keller and Sir.
Ollror--IUcvclo Ordinnnco Agnln
Itoforo Conncll--Clnlm of Mutdoon
& llovlo--Ordlnnncc 1'nsicd on
Second Itcndlng.
Luther Keller and Joseph Oliver at
last night's meeting of the common
council made an unsuccessful attempt
to amend the ordinance giving the
Central Pennsylvania Telephone and
Supply company permission to con
struct underground conducts or over
head appliances for carrying their
wires.
Mr. Keller proposed to attach an
amendment to the effect that "as soon
aa practicable, after the conduits are
constructed, tho overhead wires on. the
thoroughfaica traveled by such con
duits shall bo put under ground.
Mr. Oliver's amendment was to fol
low the clause providing that 2,000 feet
of conduit should be constructed with
in one year after the company ac
cepted thei franchise, and It further
stipulated "that COO feet of conduit be
constructed each succeeding year there
after and all wires placed therein
until all overhead wires within the
city are underground." These attempts
at amendment weie defeated. The vote
was:
(For tho amendments Messrs. Reese,
Walker, Molr, Wenzel, Jackson, Oliver
and Kclcr 7.
Against th amendments Messrs. Gor
don, Grler, Thomas, Regan, Gllroy, Flan
aghan, Wlrth, Sweeney, Nealls, Zeldler,
Noone, Sheridan, Norton 13.
The ordinance came over from select
council, through which It had squeez
ed after a hard battle, and on motion
of Mr, Noone was referred to the Ju
diciary committee "with Instructions
to report forthwith." Messrs. Reese,
Moir, JackBon, Oliver and Keller op
posed the "forthwith" part of the
resolution, but as everybody else fa
vored It the motion passed. The com
mittee retired for a few minutes and
then camo out with a favorable report.
The ordinance was then passed on first
and second readings by the vote above
noted.
REMARKS OF MEMBERS.
After the futile attempts at amend
ment on second reading, Mr. Oliver
arose and said: "If this company was
In earnest and meant what It says, Us
supporters would not oppose these mild
resolutions asked for the benefit of the
public. I do not think they are sin
cere; but simply want a double fran
chise." Mr. Molr said: "As the ordinance
now stands the company Is not re
quired to place a single foot of wire
underground. It seems to me they
merely want this new franchise to keep
out competition. If the company was
acting In good faith and its ordinance
betokened that It was, Its agent would
not have to come around to see me or
Mr. Keller or Mr. Somebody else."
Mr. Keller "I am heartily In favor
of putting all wires underground. Let
that be understood. If the company
Intends to put its wires underground,
I can't see how It can reasonably ob
ject to these amendments. It looks to
me as If there was a nigger on the
fence somewhere."
Mr. Gllroy "The amendments are
merely for the purpose of obstruction."
Mr. Keller "You are mistaken, sir!
You are talking bosh!"
Mr. Gllroy "I'm right. Delay Is the
only purpose they have In mind. If
the ordinance Is amended with these
unnecessary and superfluous additions
It will be delayed six or eight weeks.
There are thousands of men out of em
ployment and they would be all the
longer kept out of the opportunity for
work which the building of the con
duits will give them."
Mr. Oliver "This argument Is very
frail. When the company's agent came
to me and I spoke of amendments such
as were presented tonight he also said
they were superfluous. It is better, as
I told him, to have an ordinance that
would be superfluous In some of Its
conditions than to have one th'at would
be ineffective."
HAD NOT BEEN SEEN.
This mention of the visit of an
"agent" brought Mr. Grier to his feet
with a denial of his having been seen
by any agent and an expression of be
lief that no agent had been to see any
of the councilman.
Mr. Oliver reiterated thlat nn agent
had been to see him. As to whether
or not he h'ad been to see other council
men he was not prepared to say. Mr.
Keller nnd Captain Molr admitted that
an agent h'ad been to see them. "Well
tliat doesn't go to show that he has
been to ses all of us" said Mr. Grler.
"When no one pursueth," was all that
reache-l tho reporter's table of trie
cogitations of some member down In
tho rear of the room, who was think
ing out loud.
Tho old Lansing1 bicycle ordinance
was reintroduced by Ml". Wenzel and
referred to committee. The only dif
ference In the old and new ordinances
Is that the new one limits the speed of
wheels to 10 miles an hour, while
the old one placed the limit at eight
miles.
Other new measures Introduced and
favorably considered were: An ordi
nance providing for the payment of tho
claim of Muldoon & Bowe for extra
work on the Linden street and Roar
ing Brook bridges; an ordinance pro
viding for the erection and mainten
ance of fates at tho crossing of tho
Erie and Wyoming Valley railroad on
Beech street; a resolution permitting
James Donahoe to uso city ilro hy
drants to fill his sprinkling cart, with
which he proposes to allay the dust on
West Market street; an ordinance
providing for repairing the hoso wagon
of Excelsior company, No. 8; an or
dinance providing for laying side
walks on Washburn street from Malm
avenue to Tenth street; an ordinance
for paving Dlx court with vitrified
brick between Linden street and tho
city proptrty.
PURCHASE OP IIOSU.
The resolution providing for the pur
chase of $1,300 worth of fire hose and
S100 worth of garden hose for the fire
department was favorably reported
from committee.
Mr. Flanughan, of the special com
mittee appointed to Investigate and re
port upon the matter of the Luzerne
street sewer, reported that a meeting
had been held but aa only one council
man from the Interested wards was
present, nothing was done. He recom
mended that the matter be referred to
the Joint sewers and drains., commit-
tee, In conjunction with the council
men of the Fifth and Sixth wards.
At the last meeting of common coun
cil a resolution was passed directing
tho chairman to appoint a committee
nn vice and Immorality, a committee
which had boen left unfilled for the
past three or four years, because of
the members being adverso to nctlng
on It. Last night Mr. Nealls, In con
formity with the resolution, appointed
on that committee Messrs, Sweeney,
Sheridan, Norton, Wenzel and Thomas,
Before making the appointments he
made ithe remark that if the committee
did Its duty It would be of far reach
ing benefit to the olty.
City Treasurer C, G. Boland present
ed a report of tho disbursements and
receipts ot his office for the months
of -April and May. This system of
monthly reports fell Into disuse sev
ii nl years ago.
Tho bill of Dunn Bros, for paving
In frcnt of the Nay Aug engine house,
amounting to $107.93, was passed, with
out the approval ot the auditing com
mittee, after Mr. Sweeney had ex
plained that through the negligence ot
tho chairman of the lira department
oflmmtttee. It was not presented to the
auditing committee. The auditing1 com
mittee knew of the bill and discussed
and virtually gave It approval.
PASSED TWO READINGS.

mit avenue and Ferdinand streets;

tween the land lino of L. I. & C. com
pany and that of H. O. Sllkman, and

A letter from Councilman T. B. Jack
son, of the Thirteenth ward was read
calling1 the attention of the streets and
bridges committees to damages which
resulted to his property from grading
operations and asking that It be prop
erly recompensed so as to avoid a law
suit. Tho matter1 was referred to the
streets and bridges committee. Ad
journment was made until next Thurs

DISPUTE OF OILMORE & DUFFY.
Tho Latter Brings nn Equity Suit
Against tho Former.
The dispute between A, F. Duffy and
A. G. Gllmore over the winding1 up of
the affairs of the late firm of Gllmore
& Duffy culminated yesterday In an
equity suit brought by Mr. Duffy's at
torneys, I. II. Burns and Hon. M. E.
McDonald, to restrain Mr. Gllmore
from continuing to collect the debts
due to the Arm on disposing1 ot any of
Its property to compel him to pay over
money already collected and also
to have the firm's accounts placed In
the hands of a receiver.
In .his affidavit Mr. Duffy alleges that
Mr. Gllmore by mutual agreement was
to collect the money owing1 tho firm,
pay its Indebtedness from the collec
tions and then divide the balance re
maining. Mr. Gllmore, he says, has
colected mote than sufficient to pay all
the liabilities, but lias converted tho
money to his own uses, thereby leaving
them In danger of having their credi
tors enter Judgment against them. In
this 'event, Mr. Duffy alleges, he would
bo the only sufferer, as Mr. Gllmore, he
alleges, is not financially responsible.

o'clock the service opened with the
congregational singling of a number
of gospel hymns and a prayer by Rev.
Dr. C. M. Glffen, of Elm Park church.
That the majority of those in the
large audience were of the Christian
and church-going class was attested
In their ready and continued response
to Mr. Crittenton's request for testi
monials by means of quotations from
the Scriptures. For ten minutes one,
two or three were constantly on their
feet repeating the more familiar pas
sages of the bible. There was another
hymn sung by the audience and then
Mr. Crlttenton announced the time and
nature of future meetings.

"Abiding" In the Young Men's Chris
tian association building. In urging a

marked that a man whoso business

Wallace. His text was, "Behold what
manner of love." He made fervid ref
erence to Christ's sacrifice upon the

Almighty for a sinful world. At the
close of the discourse there was a scries
of silent prayers, hymns sung in low
voice and a period of exhortation.

thnt of tho previous day. Edward
Griffin told that In 1865 ho hauled
fence-posts ito tho lot in dispute at tho
defendant's request, Tho depositions
of A. B, Dunning, sr werei read, show
ing that ho rented tho property from
Fordlnard Von Storch In 1818. Mrs.
Jacob II. Bloom's depositions hold of
her having paid rent for ho property
to Currlngton S. Von Storch in 1864.
Leander Von Storch, brother of Cur
rlngton, gavo testimony which tended
to prove, like that of tho preceedlng
