President Conrad occupied the chair at
the meeting of Council last evening. When
the minutes of the previous meeting had been
approved the chairman of the Finance Com
mittee reported the bill of Johu G. Baker
for $1,000, to be paid from appropriations
to different committees, as follows: Sewers,
$500; Opening streets, $160; Public Build
ings, $200; Incidentals, $150.
_r. BaUey,
Public Buildings, said he didn't see bow
they could pay $200, when only about $43
remained to their credit.
Mr. TalJey 6ald that, as it was no secret
tbat the Republican members of Council
had held u meeting last Saturday evenin
to "consider several matters," he wou)
state that it was then decided, as the bill
had to be paid, that it should be divided u
as stated. There bad been, he paid, mac
comment made about the bill and he had
been accused unjustly. No oue seemed to
know much about the work. Some chair
man must have
know what to do with the bill.
The Second ward statesman declared em
phatically that Mr. Bailey had had charge
ol the job.
Mr. Bailey tried to explain how he had
not had charge of the Job.
Mr. Garrett took Mr. Bailey severely to
task for "bossing the job" aud then trying
to get other committees to foot the bill. He
iil^y had expressed the belief that

hi« commit
the consultation in caucus.
Mr. BaUey declared that, while he was
sorry to «ay it, most of what Mr. Garrett
said, was not true. The gentleman then
explained how the money of his committee
liai been consumed.
Mr. Paynter could not see any crooked
ness in the affair, as had been intimated.
The matter was all right, but he did not
think two gentlemen should be allowed to
make it a personal matter and "bullyrag"
each other on the floor of Council.
During the discussion the Second ward
member moved to refer back to the Finance
Committee. The motion was lost.
Mr. Beecher moved, as au amendment to

The Water Committee leported favorably
the petitions of Ed. Mclnall and Jacob
Stuck for return of overpaid water tax, the
first for $2 and the latter (or $3. Report
adopted and orders directed drawn.
Tlie Law Committee reported that there
was no provision in the city charter to con
flict with the ordinance chauging the spell
ing of Hazlett street.
The Public Bqjldiugs Committee reported
adversely the petition of D. H. Kent, re
ceived last week, on the ground that when
the wharf was leased It was understood that
the lessee was to keep the property in
order.
The Committee on Engrossment reported
all ordinances passed by Council as having
been engrossed.
The City Treasurer reported a balance in
bank of $28,890.30.
The Street Commissioner reported 22
and 5 teams employed with a pay-roll of
$144 43.
Chief Engineer Coyle of the Water De
partment reported 18 men engaged and &
pay-roll ol $219.
Petitions
follows: James Cook and others, to grade,
curb and pave on Monroe street; Peter Mc
Closkey and others, for lamp on Madison
street between Third and Fourth streets;
Thomas J. Bowen, application for the posi

street from Eleventh to Twelfth; Weccacoe
Engine Co., for a loan ot $3,000 to help
house; Johu Davis, for 165 feet
of water pipe on Cedar street between Mar
shall and Brown streets.
A communication was received from the
heirs of David C. Wilson, deceased, agreeing
to relinquish to the city all claim to the
property on Twelfth and Hazlett street«,
providing a park be established. Mr. Payn
tur thought a quit deed should be given.
Mr. Bailey «aid tlie parties were willing to
do that. Mr. Paynter suggested that the
heirs be informed tbat all objections to the
bill authorizing the straightening or Twelfth
street, as asked tor by the heirs, would
be removed juBt i

A Locomotive CraHlie« Into a PAHsenger
Train.
Trenton. N.J., April 12.—At a few min
utes before 9 o'clock this morning, train No.
150, on the Bound Brook route, from New
York to Philadelphia, was ruu into at the
crossing of that road and the Lehigh Valley
roadbetweeu Bound Brook and W«i«ton, by
a special locomotive of the latter road. The
rear coach of the Bound Brook traiu
overturned aud at
the passenge
flames reached them. Thirteen persons re
ceived injuries, two very serious ones—John
Croy, fireman of the Lehigh engiue, aud
John Lacheumaier of Philadelphia.
The Lehigh Valley locomotive and the
passenger train left the adjoining depots in
Bound Brook at tlie same time, and from
there to the scene of the accident the tracks
ruu almost parallel. The passengers on
the train clearly 6aw the impending collision
a minute or two before it occurred, and it is
stated that the crew of the Lehigh Valley
locomotive abandoned ft after reversing the
engine.
Master Mechanic Paxton, of the Philadel
phia and Reading :ailroad, was on the loco
motive of the passenger train. The rear
car of the Philadelphia traiu was entirely
burned aud the one ahead of it badly
wrecked. The Lehigh Valley engine was
ditched und smashed.
The responsibility for the accident is not
yet fixed, but there is a disposition to place
the blame upon the signal man at the cross
ing. The engineer of the Lehigh Valley
locomotive claims to have been given the
safety signal
the crossing. Land Agent Biekle, who was
the engine with him, corroborates this,
and says that he remarked that the passen
ger train did not seem to be slowing down
He supposed, however, that it would do so
as it neared the crossing. He warned the
engineer to look out when he saw the pas
senger train passing ahead. Tlie engineer
replied that it was too late, but reversed the
engine. Mr. Bishop, an injured passenger,
says he saw the locomotive coming at full
speed until almost up to the crossing, when
it wa6 reversed, aud the driving-wheels were
turning backward when the collision
curred.
Master Machinist Paxson says they were
shown the white signal until within 20 feet
of the crossing, when the red suddenly
flashed in their face. The passenger traiu
