Th Inveetlgfttlon Proceeds 31 ore Light I'pon the Subject-On of the Out" TastlAea The Haallty nd the tu en tity f (1 Furnished, Ktc. Lout evcTiiiifr another ro?etini of the (!s Com mittee was held in 8loct Council chamber. The ees-eion wan attended by sovrnil members of Councils and scientific penilemtD. Colonel J'ape conducted the examination. Mr. Edward Worrell was sworn, lie resides at No. ?,15 North Twenty-first street, and Is a Republican in politics. Mr. Worrell said that he was elected by the Trusties f'upenntendeiit of Public Lamps, in Januiiry, 18G5. On the 1st of March he toon his position. At the end of the year for which he wan elected ho was re elected. ' On the lit of Iw-t month he was dis charged without Bny official notice of charecs tir allegations against him. The only notice that he had was from Mr. Barnes, one of the Tructees. who told him he would be discharged, and Bfked his resignation. .Mr. Worrell didn't give it. and was turned out. Mr. Worrell Wa9 Suoerinteiidont of Public tamps in December, 18!5. About the 1st of thai month he was in ihe Seventh street otlice when the men were paid. The Kneincer called the men tog tour and told them to put out the lamps three-quarters of an bour bciore calender time, and to liht them on sharp calendar time. The Engineer said the city was burning too much gas, and unless the tm- was reduced in the lamps the city would be deprived of a Mipply. On tne 12th of the month the witness received tin orler t'tom the Superintendent of the institution to Unlit tho lamps a halt hour later and extinguish nn hour earlier than calen dar time. On t'je 14th of December a third order came direct from the Yitlicu of the Trust to light an hour later and to extinguish an hour later. That wn obeyed for scverul weeks. It went on until the repulntors were put on the lamps. Everybody knows what they were. The witness said there was a regulator put on every lamp in the city. 01 thee there arc seven thousand, and the expense of the. same was a dollar per lamp. As soon a" the regulators were attached they reduced tne pas burned one half. The people cried out against the malpractice, and tne resuiators, that hadcot seven thousand dollars, were thrown away a old brass. Mr. Worrell said that dependence could not be placed upon station lamps. These are lamps in ciillerent parts of the city furnished with meteis. From therncords of these meters, tho Trust averages the amount of cas consumed in the city lamps, aud regulates the price charged the city. 'J he witness specified rbelamp at the station at Filth and Cherry streets. He knew that it was left burning after all the other lights were put out, and on nitrhts when it was" ex tinguished it was relighted by other parties. The time the city lamps were put out earlier than the contract, time was thelrcaricst seaon in the winter. He said they were hazy, foggy, sleety morning?, when, alter putting out the lamps, be could not distinguish pavement trdni street. Many times he said he risked his Hi's Mumbling home from his duty. He also said that the Superintendent of Dis tribution appointed his subordinates, and the Superintendent of Public Lighting, his em ployes until 18G5. Then the Trustees took the appointing power into their own hands. 'I have seen," said be, "a eroat deal ef trouble (in reference to this subject, because the Superin tendents have beeo put to diiliculty from the necessity ot having meu under them who were incompetent to perform the labor required of ihem." These appointments were all political. At one time he nad a man put under him be cause a Trustee wanted a Iriend fixed. At another time he reported a man tor misconduct, and the Trustees told him no matter how he Ychaved, he must lie retained tor his political services. ' Agam, the witness was the recipient of Mr. Harnes' grievances in this respect. ' Mr. Barnes aid to bim, "One of the Trustees has bad so many more appointments than me, nnd I don't think that's a lair shake !" and the Trustee said in the presence ot the witness, "I haven't had. any appointments yet, and I am eoiug to have fcjuie," , MR. TRUSTEE ELLIOT ON TUE STAN 0. Colonel Pace subpicnucd Trustees Klllot and Houseman. Mr. Houseman is posted, and he stayed away. Mr. Elliot dousn't know anything, and he attended and said so. To all questions about cominisbious paid to Trustees, of luterests or contracts, or of the prostitution of moneys of the Trust to nominate its Trustees to political offices, Air. Elliot said he knew nothing. He feaid he went on the excursions to Pittsburg and ltoston. For the latier the Trust paid. The tcnoi r he faid "didn't cost them a cent." They went to Pittsburg by the invitation of some body interested in the mines. With the party 10 Boston went the Enaineer. Colonel Pace Were tiKre any other persons accompanying friends or companions of any Mr. Elliot There may have been one or two Iriends; 1 cannot say at the moment; we were j;one about a week, may be seven, eight, nine, or ten days. Colonel Page Did you, because certain men in the Works would not support you in your etlorts to pet a political nomination, caute ihem to be discharged, and they were not per mitted to come buck until they got a recom mendation from you, which you gave because they would be friendly to help your nomina tion? Mr. Elliot No, sir; I will explain iu regard to that matter; I have no concealment in regard to it; I never eave any recommendation or any thing of the sort such as you speak ot. Alter the matter was all over, I turned a man ouiof the Works whom my Iriends had made judge of an elccticn. and after exacting him to that posi tion, he was base enough to Hike money from my opponents to sell me out. Mr. Elliot also said he was one of the ten Trustees who received three hundred and titty dollars from the Trust, About the middle of a clamor was raised for the reduction of the price of gas. The clamor entered thn press, Councils, and the Board. It called upon the cashier to furnish a statement of the tiuauces tor the first six months of 1HG5. The cashier submitted the statement. The Board were not catistied. The cashier, who bad beeu discharged when the Trustees organized in the sprint of 18li5, was culled in, and he made a statement, but it wouldn't do. Then the Committee ot Finance appointed the w itness and Mr. McArthy to make up the statement. They did so. From the 15th of September to the 8th of November they worked at the books. For this they didu't charge anything, but the Board generously pave them three hundred and titty dollurs each. They didn't return it. Mr. Elliot also said that the Board of Trustees - had ordered the testimony takeu, before this ' Committee aud the Committee of Common Council to be phonottraphed. It is all printed in naiiiDhlet for the Trustees. He aUo oifeied the oninion that be tbouptit the Board ought to have had counsel at all the sessions of the Com . mittee. Mr. Barluw aiVcd him to explain Mr. Wor , yell's testimony about cutting oil' the hours of ' the public lamps. Mr. Elliot did so according to ' his own theory. He pulled out a iiiemordiidutn ' book and went over alon calculation to show ' " how much pas the Works could muke, and how much the people would burn. In the Works he paid there are Mill irou retorts and 72 clav retorts. These will burn a entree of 200 pound six times in iwenty-four hours. Allowing 4-20 . rubic feet to the pound of coal, each retort will produce 5040 teet ot pas per lay. Tliig is l Wfi iron retorts each 6040 foot 8,820,400 72 clay retorts eacn ow w Total... ,8.556,800 On the day in last December when so much cas was burned, the city used four million feet. The Works couldn't keep up with this, and the utreet lamps were reduced. Colonel Paee-lfyoii had bad proper intelll rt me at the head ol the Works, would not this Jiave teen foreseen r , Mr. ElliotNo man could have f irem en It, sir. Colonel Piipc Was there not a waul of cupa citv at Ihe Works!1 ; Mr. Elliot Tfes, sir. Colonel Pare Is not that a confession ot weakne In the inanacr ment Mr. Elllot-Not so, sir. Had the Aneol Gabriel been in the K'nclnecr's place he could not have bettered himself Hat winter. i Colonel Pape Could not the proper officer have anticipated this difficulty f . Mr. Eliiot The Board arc now building a new retoit house at Point Breeze. It ought to have been done a year aso. In the coming winter, if the weather rets dark about Christmas, I believe the city will consume lour million five hundred thousand leet of pas. Colonel Pape Do you know what the stan dard of pas is r - ;' Mr. Elliot Yes. sir. Merchantable gas is nbnntfiltcen candles. Colonel Paee What do you think is the ave rage of the eas you have i?eeu furnishing for the last two years 1 Mr. bl iot I have seen It tested atthe Market slreet works, and it lia always been that. Colonel Pape And 1 have seen it tested, and it bus always lallen below that tipure. Mr. Elliott also said that he had understood he could not testify that charges of miscon duct hd been made auaiust Mr. Worrell while he was in the employ of the Works. With this he closed. Mr. Worrell desired to say a word about this. Leave was granted, and ho said: Mr. Woricll I w ish to state ttiat last January Mr. Barnes intended to turn me out. I moved outot the sixth Ward, and he wanted to re move me because I moved out of tm ward. My Iriend, the Councilman, saved mo. In the fall, w hen my Iriemhjvas not re elected, Mr. Barnes met me m the Continental Hotel and told me I would be dismissed; that somebody in the Board had broueht up the matter .and asked lor my removal. He said that Mr. Houseinau ha I determined, that I must po. 1 went to Mr. Houseman, and he denied it. I went to Mr. McManes, ami he said my case had never beu beiore the Board. Mr. Bnines told me a false hood, or else Mr. .McManes did. and I will be lieve Mr. McManes betore Mr. Barnes. Mr. Barlow Hadn't you better not speak in such strong terms ? Mr. Worrell I will tpcuk as I please, sir. Mr. Barnes told nie a tiilschood. At this point, Mr. H.Iey, who was present, spoke Colonel Pace, do. you call that testi mony ? Colonel F.-tge lou have no right to interfere, sir. Mr. Riley Well, I don't think that is proper testimony. Colonel 1'a 'ape Mr. Kilcy. now you will take. your seat. It you don't behave yourself, you must go out at that door. Mr. Hiley (very much mollified ) That isn't testimony oelore this Committee. Colonel Page I want you to understand. Mr. Riley, that you have no riehc to interiere here. You don't know your place, sir, if you attempt to interiere with the Committee. Tax ox Railroad Dividends.
