that said bonds ought to be paid ofT, as
funds for this purpose are now in the
treasury, and by so doing the city would

of Expert Accountant C.illahan, who has
been checkintr the city books, has been
finished,*but;owi eg toits'volume and the
subject being one tha* will require a

the committee, it. would be impossible to
report upon it before the next meeting.
An .interesting discussion arose ?vet

sion was at times lively and was engaged
in by Messrs. Terry, Bnckner, Col
bourne, Casey and Page. The report of
the committee on accounts recommended
that no horses be maintained at the ex?
pense of the'city. The recommendation

structed to make type-written copies cf
it and furnish one to each member ol tbe
Couucil. Here is where the fun began.
Mr. Terry left the chair, substituting
Mi. Colbonrne, and took Jtbe floor oppos?
ing the motion, saying that it was a re?
lied ion on the members of the finance
committee and an insinuation that they
would not properly render their report.
It was evident from the tone ot bis re?
marks that he was of the opinion tuat
the resolution was a direct slap at tbe
in reply to Mr. Terry Mr. Buckner again
secured recognition and said that it was
no intention of bis to cast any reflection
on the. committee, but that he demanded
as a member of the Council to be placed
in a position In which he could post him?
self on tbio important matter During
the course of his remarks Mr. Terry grew
extremely nervous and was greatly ex?
cited. He interrupted the speaker sev?
eral times and when tbe. gentleman Irom

like silliness pervaded the Council cham?
ber for a moment. All felt the pressure
of the occasion and every one present felt
that Mr. Terry was fixing to say some?
thing mighty interesting. In fact in
made one think of "Hot Times in Old
Mr. Terry went to work to maintain
his point and in so doing, in reference to
a statement from Mr. Buckner that he
and Mr. CJuy had at one time been hon?

but for some reason unknown to him

and bis remarks were addressed to Mr.

had narrowed down to a disgrace I ul per?
sonal quarrel between the two gentlemen.
Mr. Buckner again declared that he
meant no .ellectiou on any member of tbe
committee on finance, when very happily
Mr. Evans terminated the unpleasant in?
cident by Beeing an omission in Mr.
Buckner's original motion, which he evi?
dently intended should be embodied, and
by Ottering an amendment by requiring
that a copy of the report of the expert
accountant bu furnished to each member
of Council after the finance committee,
had been given an opportunity to prepare
their report. Mr. Terry at once seconded
tbe amendment and it'^vas adopted by the
unanimous vote of the Council.

PENNSYLVANIA JOIN THE
GREAT ARMY OF STRIKERS.
Pittsburg, Aug. 17.?To-day was
fraught with exciting incidents in mat?
ters* pertainintr to the miners' strike.
Mutiny in the strikers'camp, murder in
?he deputies' runks, Illing of civil and
criminal suits against the" De'Arinitts,
an<' the hearing in the injunction case
against Presidont[l)olnn and others, kept
both sides to the struggle busy and u:i
the qui vive all day.
The lit .-.ring in the injunction case be?
fore Judges Stowe ami Collier was, per?
haps, one of tho most important and in?
teresting ever held in a Pennsylvania
court. It was a hearing in 1 which both
capital and rights of labor were inter
estc', and the decision isexpected to have
a telling efTect on the conduct of the coal
miners' strike, which has been ou since
From the testimony adduced and from
the expressions of the court it cau safely
be said that there will he some surprises.
That the injunction will be materially
modified there can be "uo doubt, which,
on its face, would indicate a victory for
the strikers. Tue preliminary decree has
been continued pending a consultation of
the Judges and an opinion [will probably
be handed down by noon to-morrow.
Judge Collier said in court to day that
the strike would go down in history as
oue of the wonders of the "century and
remarkable ou account of the utter lack
of disorder, for which the strikers are
commended and have the sympathy of
the court. Said he:
"There cuu.be no questlou as to what
our duty is tinder all the testimony, but
I am somewhat In doubt as to whether or
not the order should be modified. We
cannot determine this without a consul?
Judge St owe said this evening:
"This injunction will no! justify the
issuing of an attachment against, any
marchers who are not found in company
with the men named in the injunction."
He left it to be understood that, the in?
junction is not so sweeping as has been
thought; that only the"live mon'nanied in
the writ?Patrick Dohm,"William War?
ner, Cameron Miller, Uriah Bellington
and Edward McKay?are restrained from
inarching or tresspasslng on :ho com?
pany's property. The others mentioned
can be only those found in company with
the five named in the injunction.
As near as can be learned, the strikers
under the injunction can inarch, but not
at stated times, as long as they are not
in company with any of these defendants.
The threatened suits against the New
Yoi k and Cleveland Company for retain?
ing the wages of their strikers has been
commenced. It is anticipated that about
150 suits will result. Each will be for
salaries ranging from $15 to ?20, wh'.ch
represents two weeks' pay. Three; suits
were entered before Ablereman Toole to
day. The hearings were fixed for next
Saturday and the outcome will be
watched for with great interest, as It
Involves'tbo legality of the iron clatPcon
trae.t and the right to withhold tho wages
of the striking employes.
Two deputies, Robert Kerr and Frank
Anderson, employed las guardians of the
New York and Cleveland Gas Coal Com?
pany, foui/ht this afternoon, and as a re?
sult Kerr ennuot live until morning.
Anderson is proprietor of a dive on
W-iter street,this city, and is known as a
bad man. He was in charge of the depu?
ties at Sandy Creek. Ken, who lives at
MoKees Rocks, is a river pilot by occu?
pation. He has served before as a deputy
during strikes. It is not knowu what the
men fought about, but they met ou a
bridge crossing Plum crfek, and after a
few words Anderson was seen to hit
Kerr, who retaliated, and a rough and
tumble fight, lasting about live minutes,
followed Anderson scceeded in drawing
his pistol and placing it close to Kerr's
abdomen, died, the ball tearing through
the victim's intestines aud lodging in his
back. The physicians say "he [will die in
a few hours. A constable tried to arrest
Anderson, hut he was prevented by dep?
uties, who sail that they would hold h'm

may not be before morning.

H. Graveley, Populist candidate for at

pointed by the recent Populist conven?

party for attorney-general this year, was
seen by a correspondent on bis re?

somewhat reticent as to the reported plan
Of the Populists for fusion with Repub?
licans in the state campaign. When
asked the attitude of. .the Populists in
their overtures to the recent. Democratic
State convention, lie said:
"Why, I think oar letter makes that
very plain. We proposed to keep all
good silver men in line for another grand
fight In 1900. This is Bryan's plan. Wo
also desired our silver brethren among
the Democrats to rid Virginia of the
present odious election law. It was right
for us to give the Democratic convention
an opportunity to perform their riuht
eous deeds, and so w<* did, and that is all
there Is about it."
"Why do you suppose they failed to en?
dorse Captain Cocke-1"
"You will Inno to ask the Democratic
bosses. Many of the rank and tile of the
delegates seemed anxious for it, but the
thimble-riggers were too much for them.
Possibly it was tho Democratic way of
expressing gratitude to the Populists for
svalng the State to Bryan and the seats of
Otey, Swnnsou anil Epes in Congress."
"Is there any truth in the report that
the Populists and Republicans will fuse?"
"I don't know. It is not well known
whether the Republicans will call a Statu
convention. Our committee will meet
in the next ten days and bo heard from."
"If fusion is effected what will be tho
line of attack upon tho Democracy?"
