There was so much oratory and quib
bling: In regular session over minor
matters which shnuhl have been ar
ranged In committee, that many of tho
members at last night's board of con
trol meeting deserted their brethren
while Controller Notz was in the midst
of n distention and the mectinc was
without a quorum and had to adjourn.
There was, however, a llttlo business
transacted before the session llunked
Into an adjournment at 9.15 o'clock.

lowlnB financial statement showing

The statement of receipts and ex
penditures ns shown by the treasurer's
account was presented at the last
meeting and showed an apparent bal
ance in the general school and build
ing accounts of $14,321.17. But after
deducting June salaries and bills paid
afte: the first of July and also other
bills properly chargeable to last year's
revenue, this apparent balance disap
pears and a deficit of $061.31 exists at
tho beginning of tho present year.
The payment of Janitors' salaries and
amounts duo officers for the current
month were ordered paid.
Dlds for furnishing curtains, mats,
otc, for Noo. 10 and 23 school buildings
were opened and read as follows:

The bids were referred to the supply
Mr. Langan, of the high and train
ing -school committee reminded the
board that the question of a commer4
cla. course department at the high
school was still unsettled. At a pre
vious meeting action was deferred un
til Superintendent Howell could be con
sulted. He suggested that the super
intendent, who was in his office, be
asked to address the board on the mat
ter. Mr. "Wormser moved, seconded by
Mr. Barker, that action be deferred for
one year, for the reason that the high
and training committee had not made
any request that a commercial course
appropriation be included In tho board's
estimated '07-'98 expenditures. The
motion was adopted.
The supply committee, through Chair
man Devanney, recommended the pur
chase of the following supplies for the
ensuing school year, and that the sec
retary advertise for proposals to fur
25,000 pencil pads, 6x3 Inches, 100 sheets,
1ft) reams Oakland or Tabyan mills
100 reams letter heads, same quality.
80 leams commercial note, same qual
ity. 500 gross pupils' lead pencils. 30 gross
teachers' lead pencils.
2u0 gross Waltham white enamelled
30 dozen Andrews' wool felt bleach
120 gallons Ink.
(.00 gross pens.
200 packages small envelopes, No. c
4 doz. themomoters, 10-lnche.
10 doz. pointers, 36-inch, rubber tip.
25 boxes rubber bands, Fabor No. 11 and
15 doz. feather dusters.
C doz. water pails, granite, 12-quart.
Concerning the wasteful use of pads
by pupils the supply committee had
this to offer;
The committee has been reliably In
formed that a great many of tho pads
used In tho schools have been wasted.
"Wo recommend that tho teachers In each
room be directed to requlro from each
pupil a return of tho pod given out after
It has been filled without tearing anyof
tho leaves from It, and that no pad bo
furnished a pupil who does not comply
with this requirement,
Tho whole of the report was adopted.
There was a lively debate between
Mr. "Welsh and Mr. Wormser, partici
pated in by others, relative to tho for
mer's motion that an exoneration of 75
per cent, be allowed on a school tax
of $36 against a certain piece of real
estate. Mr. Wormser thought that
such an exoneration was unprecedent
ed and, further, that tho boaid had on
Its files legal opinions, that It was ille
gal. Mr. Welsh's motion finally pre
vailed, Messw. Shlrer, Davis, Worm
ser, Jacobs, Schriefer and Barker vot
ing negatively and President Jennings
ABSENCE OF A QUORUM.
Mr. Notz had arisen and was begin
ning an Invitation to tho boaid to in
spect 'the new No. 7 building on Aug.
7 when seven or eight members filed
singly and In pairs from the room un
noticed by President Jennings wha
was dozing through the anticipation of
Mr. Notz's speech.
Mr. Gibbons had begun to ask the
board's consent to an expenditure of
$120 in cleaning and kalsomlnlng the
rooms of No. 17 school when the lack
of a quorum was discovered. President
Jennings ruled that no further busi
ness could bo transacted.
"Things are coming to a pretty pass,"
exclaimed Mr. Gibbons, bringing his
fist down upon his desk with a re
sounding whack, "when the members
of this board cannot attend to business
other than such as they aro directly
Interested In! I'm going to order that
work done and this board will pay for
It, toot I'll I'll ."

Laying Concrete at the Lower
End of tbe Street.
Work on laying the concrete for tho
Mulberry street asphalt pave was bo
gun yesterday morning. The firstblock
between Mlfllln and Franklin avenues,
Is being first attended to, and after
four hours and thirty minutes work
the employes were compelled to stop,
owing to a scarcity of crushed stone.
Four hundred and eight yards of con
crete hnd been laid.
The Columbia Construction company,
contract holders, had nrranged with
Stoneman Kearney, of this city, to
bupply tho crushed stone. Kearney
fell behind yesterday. His single stone
crusher at tho end of Mulberry sttect,
could not grind out material enough,
and at 3 o'clock In tho afternoon Super
intendent J. II. Gallup, who Is In
charge of the work for the company,
laid off the force. During nil tho
morning delays had played havoc with
Superintendent Gallup stated yester
day that after the workmen are bet
ter acquainted with the work and the
sub-contractors furnish material in
proper nbundance, nbout 1,200 yards
of concrete will be placed each day.
The men are all new hands, and wero
taken on yesterday morning. The de
mand for places was great. Fifty men
wero placed at work of the several
hundred that applied. None but citi
zens of Scranton are employed.
FINISH IN SIX WEEKS.
Yesterday afternoon Kearney began
the erection of a new stone crusher at
his wortw. He will keep the two crush
ers working day and night to meet tho
demand. Given good luck, Superin
tendent Gallup says that the Job will
be completed In six weeks.
City Engineer Phillips was on the
scene of opetatlon yesterday. Ho ex
pressed himself as being satisfied with
the start made. Tho work of curbing
tho street has reached within
a few feet of Washington avenue.
The modus operandi of the Columbia
Construction company has one de
parture from the method of paving
used by the Barber and other com
panies. This Is the first Job that the
Construction company has had In this
city. They bring along a mixing ma
chine, which Is the first of its kind
to be used In this city. The machine
Is a huge concern, and works some
what on the order of an up-to-dato
threshing machine. The sand and mor
tar are dumped Into an opening on ono
sldo and tho crushed stone on the
other. In the middle of the machine
Is the mixer, and after tumbling the
mass about for a time the prepared
concrete comes out through a chute
at the rear end, and is carted away In
wheelbarrows. Nine men were kept
busy wheeling away the output dur
ing the working hours yesterday.
The work is done much more expe
ditiously than by the old shovel and
hoe fashion. The machine attracted
much Interest yesterday. Common
Councilman Grler and Selectman Chit
tenden were among the crowd of sev
eral hundred on the scene.

The foregoing was unanimously
adopted at last night's meeting of the
Central Labor union In the Ancient
Order United Workmen hall on Lacka
wanna avenue, and oodles were given
to tho newspapers for publication.
The action was occasioned by tho
recent attacks of the paper mentioned
upon tfie well known clothing firm.
Last Tuesday night after Michael
itapheal, agent for the United Gar
ment Workers of New York cltv, had
mado his address concerning sweat
shops and their products a committee
comprising members of the several lo
cal labor unions was named and au
thorized to investigate suggestions of
fered by Agent Raphael that certain
clothing firms in this city wero han
dling sweat-shop goods.
Tills committee consists of T. J. Mon

Knowiton, of tho Carpenters' union; J.
F. Everett, of tho Cigar Makers' union;
W. J. O'Connell, of tho Horseshoers'

Levy, of the Clerks' union. The two
latter were excused from serving be
cause they are employed by Interested
These committees met and Investi
gated, as far as possible, and an
unofficial report of their findings par
ticularly vindicating Samter Bros. &
Levy, was given In last Friday's
IN SECRET SESSION.
At the meeting of the Union last
night the committee gave its report
Insofar os It concerned every firm that
had been investigated. The meeting
was a secret session. President Flah
erty was In the chair, and the Interest
in the matter at hand was responsible
for the attendance of thirty or forty
members. At 10 o'clock a member was
sent out with the resolution given
above, and it was placed at the dis
posal of the representatives of tho two
morning Scranton papers. Nothing
further was authorized for publication.
It Is known, however, that Samter
Bros. & Levy treated the commlttea
with every facility, even placing their
books at the disposal of tho Union men.
At the stores of some of the other
firms Investigated this was not done,
and the committee reported that sweat
goods are being handled In some of
thoso particular places. The usual
measures for the boycott of these non
union firms will be begun at once.
The Tribune is informed that the
committee reported favorably or ad
versely concerning nearly all the lead
ing clothing firms In the city.
