THE OTHER SIDE Another Version or the Iteoeut Ejectment from a Train at Gray's Ferry. The following version of the ejectment of a passenger named Grady from a train on the P., W & B., railroad, at Gray's Ferry, by Conductor John McCloskey, a few day's ago, Is given by a correspondent of the Morning New*: To the Editor of the Morning New*— 8ut: In your paper of November 7 I read article under the head oP'A Strange Story," and would like to say a few words about it. I was a passenger on the train Mr. Grady was on, and iu tho same car, aud conee quently a witness to the entire transaction. Mr. Grady was apparently asleep when the conductor came to him for his ticket, and, alter being awakened by the conduc tor, positively refused to show him bis ticket, stating that he (the conductor) was not conductor of that traiu. The conductor showed him his badge on his cap and asked him if be could read. He replied yes, but wanted some other evidence of his being conductor, and used language which is unfit for publication, beside saying conductor, but a-Irish talking to the man at least seven minutes, aud trying In a gentle aud persuasive man ucr to obtain the ticket, the conductor fin ally told him that if he eld not show him his ticket he would have to eject him. Mr. Grady replied that he would show him noth ing, and to put him off if he wanted to, re peating it at least a dozen times. The con ductor, without using one cross word, stopped tbe train and put Mr. Grady off. After the train bad stopped Mr Grady offered fo pay his fare, but the conductor very properly refused it. When Grady found that he must go he endeavored to get tho uames and addresses of Bomo of the gentlemen in the car as witnesses, but every one refused to give them to him. After the conductor returned to i ho car at least a dozen gentlemen gave him their cards, say ing, "If you want a witness call on roc." Now if Mr. Grady will just read this arti cle carefully aud seeing how very foo is "a strange story," indeed, when properly told, and that "Truth is strauger than llc tlon;" at least »o it seem» to a he was no man. After quietly he cannot help )Hsh he was, and that it Fassen tiEK. Wilmington, Nov. 8,1888. b© sold.

Mr. Garrett presented a number of com munication», both able on favorable and unfavor to the proposed change. Mr. Taylor stated that he c bad received a com mu ideation from Senator Bayard in favor of the change. Mr. Farrell spoke earnestly against the proposed change, and said that Council should not change the grade, as it would affect a number of pereous who had put their all lu building a borne ou the streets where the grade was asked to be changed. The houses had been constructed accord ing to a former grade adopted by Cou ncil, and to change it now would ruin property. The yeas and nays were called and the re port of the committee was rejected by tbe following vote: Yeas—Messrs. Denney, Garrett, Johnson, Lltcenberg, Moore, Newell, Pickels, Speak man, Stevenson, President Conrad—10. Nave—Messrs.

The Street Commissioner reported 24 men and 8 single teams In his employ for the past week; pay roll. $159.15. Mr. Taylor presented a resolution adopted at the last staled meeting of the Board of Health in relerence to the condition of the gutters at Delaware avenue and Eleventh committee presented a Dredging Btrcet. By general consent the Street Commis sioner was permitted to make a few remarks in reference to the matter. He said that the Street Committee tad taken special pains to keep the gutters complained of clean. They were cleaned at least twice a week. Mr. Blake coincided with the Commis sioner and said if the Board of Health could do any better it had better do so. Mr. Farrell thought the responsibility for t he bad condition of the gutters was due to the residents. Mr. Johuson thought the Board of Health was continually fault-finding at every meet lr.g. Mr. Gtrrctt said something should be done In tho vicinity. Mr. Pickels thought that the grade should be changed. He moved that two employed to keep the gutters clean until cold weather. Mr. Blake there were several cases of diptberia opposed to the motion. He thought that the gutters were as clean as any in the city, if uot cleaner. Mr. Farrell moved that the matter be re ferred back to the Board of Health, with the request that they uo ifv the residents iu the vicinity to cease polluting the gutters with the offal from their residence?. After some further discussion the motion of Mr. Farrell to *. The followiog petitions were read and re ferred: James Parker, for lamps at 8Ixth and Broome, Seventh and Broome and on Broome street, between Sixth end Seventh streets, and a flag crossing at the corner of Seventh and Broome streets; Joseph K. Adams, lamp on the north side of Seventh street, between French and Walnut; George H.

Chew, to have the side walks paved on Tenth street, between Ben nett and Church; John Cook, to pave the gutter ou 'lie west side of Kirkwood street, between Seventh aüd Eighth; Francis Mc Closkey, water pipes on Pleasant street, be tween Adams and Monroe. George II. Bates and other proporty owners were granted permission to set curb at their own expense, under the supervision of the Street Commissioner, on Broome street, between Thirteenth aud Fourteenth. Mr. Pickels presented tho following pre ambles and resolutions, which led to con siderable discussion: adopted by it vote of II order issued to set the Whereas, Thc administration of justice de mands that the uttn< *t dilligenco be observed in the ai rest of offenders, and in bringing them to a speedy hearing and trial; and, Whereas, Thc Municipal Lourt was in tended to bo a continuous tribunal, where the offenses against the peace and good order of tho city could bo properly disposed of; and. Wh r ab. Difficulty dub been experienced In obtaining warrants and In securing prompt hearings at said court, resulting in the taking of many cases before other officials for hearing, thereby losing to tue city tho fees and fines in euch cases; therefore, be It Resolved. "That this Council respectfully re quest the Judge of tho Municipal Court to tuld not loss than two sessions of said oourt each day, whore hearings may be had for offenders, and that arrangomonts be made whereby war rants may be i rocurcd promptly and with ti.inty, and bail takon without delay, and that H igh Countable nnd the other e-mstables of the city be, and they are hereby, requested to bring all parti s arrested before the City Judge for hearing and trial." Mr. Taylor moved to strike out tho last preamble. Mr. Pickels said if the preamble *as stricken out the iutent of the whole subject would be destroyed. Mr. Farrell said "It Î» our duty u Council la lc M the meo to im to it that offender» of the lvw were brought to speedy trial cud Justice." Mr. Baugh thought that keeping prisoners » whole day»was not right. There should be »t least two sessions of the Couit each day. Mr. Pickels stated that the way the hear ings are now held a persou arrested on Satur day Is kept in the hall until Monday morning unless the police took them before some Justice of the Peace for a hearing. In case a prisoner is so kept tba Chief ol Police is obliged to supply him with more meals than h» otherwise need do 0 a prompt hear* ing could be had. Furthermore, It did not •ult workingmen to lose half a day to ap pear In the morning before the court as witnesses, when the same esse could be heard In the evening. After some further discussion the motion of Mr. Taylor to strike out the preamble was lost, and the whole was adopted by a vote of 13 to 8. By resolution of Mr. Moore the Commit tee on Puhllc Buildings was authorised to lay a new floor In the office of the city tax collector. On motion of Mr. Blake the same commit tee waa Instructed to notify D. H. Kent to remove a fence at Orange street wharf as it obstructed the sidewalk.
