0N THE SQUARE
- ¢ i
A PETITION FOR MARKET HOUSES
PRESENTED TO COUNCILS,
Reasons Given Why the Square Should be
Reserved for Market FPurposes—Un
wise to Purchase Ground While the
City is in Debt-Gross Injustice
to Property Owners—-&c¢., &c.
InCommon Council Monday eveningMr
Meyers, of the Third ward, presented the
following petition from citizens residing
in the central wards, praying for a con
tinuance of the market houses in Market
square, and protesting against their re
moval :
70 the Honorable the Select and Common
Councils of the City of Harrisburg :
The undersigued citizens of Harrisburg
re;?ectfully represent :
irst—That from the contents of old
deeds and records yet in existence it is
beyond doubt that the Market square was
dedicated by the founder of the town and
his executors as a market place.
Second—That those who originally
purchased lots of ground fronting on the
same, paid the prices set upon them be
cause of their location on the square, and
that in all succeeding years the large
prices which these properties have always
brought has been owing to the fact that
semi-weckly, thousands of ecltizens and
farmers from the country have gathered
there and made it thus a center of busi.
ness.
Third—The square has been occupied
for mere than ninety years' by market
houses, which have proved a constant
source of revenue to the city and an in
dispensable eonvenience to the citizens at
largc.
Fourth—That to remove the market
houses would be gross injustice not only |
to those who own property on the square,
in that it would greatly diminish the
value thereof, but to the citizens of the
First, Second, Third and Fourth wards
especially, who would be deprived of the
conveniences heretofore enjoyed. It
would greatly diminish the volume of
trade on Market street from Front street
to Fifth street.
Fifth—The only benefit that would be
sccured by the remeval of the present
market houses would be to enhance the
value of the stock held by individuals in
the respective market companies of this
city.
Sixth—lt is an undeniable fact that the
location of capacious and comfortable
market houses on Broad street has more
than trebled the value of the real estate
bounding upon Third and Broad streets,
in the vicinity of the same, and dimin
ished the revenue arising to the city from
the public market houses in Market
square.
Seventh—ln the light of the truth it is
impossible to understand what proper
ground any person has for stating that
the removul of the market houses from
Market square would ¢nhance the value
of the adjoining properties, or why it is
that persons who own no property on
the square, and are not engaged in busi
ness there, should be so preservingly
aaxious to enhince, as they allege, the
property of others, by the runmrk:lblel
process of driving away the people from
an old establisked business locality. A ‘
process as new as it is wonderfnl.
Eighth—The city being in debt fully
one million of dollars we subwcit that it
would be unwise to purchase ground any
where for the ecrection of market houses
when Councils have an absolate right, as
may be most clearly inferred from theact
of Assembly of 1791 (which requires mar
kets to be held in Market square every
Wednesday and Saturday forever) to
erect market houses therein. '
Finally, for the above, as well as for
many other substantinl reasons which
might be hercin stated, we huubly and
most respectfully urge your honorable
bodies to remove the present buildings
from the square and to erect in their stead
and on the same premises two merket
houses of such size and capacity as the
wants of our rapidly increasing popula
tion demand.

HARRISBURG, February 206, 1885.
SELECT COUNCIL.,
Considerable Talk and a Good Bit of Work
pone Last Night,
A regular stated meeting of the Select
Council was held Monday night, present—
Gorgas, president, Forney, Fritchey, M’-
Cleaster, Miller, Ewing and Mason.
After the reading of the minutes Mr.
Miller called up the report of the Finance
Committee awarling the contract for
supplying castings during the year to W.
0. H}l,ckok, and asked that an explana
tory letter from Brown & Reel be read.
This letter explained that they had not
mentioned in their bid the delivery of the
articles, &c., inasmuch as they had al
ways delivered them and did not think of
it being necessary. A long talk in ex
planation of many things followed which
brought out the fact that the amount of
brass castings upon which Brown & Reel
bid was highest was only a few pounds,
while the iron castings upon which their
bid was lowest was many hundreds So
that they were really the lowest bidders.
Mr. Mason brought outanother curious
fact, being that the contractors had not
done all the work, and he wanted to
know if the work could be sent elsewhere
to be done why should a contract be
made at all? .
In this connection Mr. Miller stated
that he was informed by Brown & Reel
that the work supposed to be covered by
this contract had been paid for during the
past year in the proportion of eleven hun
dred dollars to Brown & Reel, the con
tractors, and nine hundred doliars to
Hickok.
Mr. Forney was very curious to know
at whose order work bad been given to
other than the coutractor, but no one re
sponded. Those present who represented
the committees said that they did not.
The question who did was not answered.
Mr. Mason said that he gave notice that
hereafter he would refuse to concur in
the payment of the bill for any work
contracted for that was done by others
than the contractor, a notice which was
concurred in by the other members of the
Council.
On motion of Mr. Miller the contract
was awarded to Browd & Reel.
The monthly bills were then read and
passed, and the new rents for stalls in
the markets reported and approved in
£TOBB,
- Mr. Mason asked that the bill of 880
for salary of Duvid Reel as assistant city
‘ engineerlaid over. His reason was, that be
| thought sa'aries should not be paid out of
| the appropriation for highways. People
| suppose the $12.000, gevbted to that
. Purpose is expended on the streets, and
| think they do not eet enough for it, while
| the fact is that fifleen hungred dollars of
it goes for salaries. He moved to refer
| the bill to the Finance Committee, which
! was done.
. Dr. Fritchey presented resolutions of
request to Congress in relation to the pro
. posed Indian Policy, stating that they had
passed the Philadelphia councils. "They
wi{elafiotpted. ;
ill for damages to the property of
Mrs. Georgia F. Day, of Bripggg)e stt?eet,
caused by the bursting of a water pipe,
857 15, was reported, Mr. For
ney referred to the amount
charged for some of the items as bein
too high, and moved it be recommitteg
for further inquiry, which was agreed to.
Among other resolations, &c., the re
port of the Finance Committee awarding
the contract for supplying the city with
gas to the United Gas Ymprovement com
pany at §1 80 per thousand feet, was read.
Approved.
A detailed statement by numbers and
amounts of bonds and coupons destroyed
during 1883 in pursnance of resolutions
of councils was read and filed. Amount
$(137,948 20. The statzment was ordered
filed.
The report of the City Treasurer for
;it;e]momh of February was read and
ed.
The report of the Highway Committee
that they had adopted the Blake stone
crusiier of the Cha{’lenge pattern, &c., at
81,360 was approved.
A number of street gradings were pro
vided for and then ordinances on second
‘reading were taken up. The following
- were passed:
. 637. File of Common Council. Fix
ing the salary of the employes in water
department, passed finally.
634. File of Common Council, defin
ing the lines of the first sewer district,
passed finally.
639, file of Common Council, for laying
water pipe on Eleventh street from State
street to Verbeke street, passed finally.
640, file of Common Council, requiring
railroad companies to put safety gates at
the crossing of the streets, was laid over.
Several ordinances were read first time |
and laid over.
The bond of 1. W. Giles, tax collector,
for $3B 000, was considered and approved.
Report of the city engineer for Febru
ary read and filed.
A communication from the Mayor on
the subject of the proper celebration of |
the centennial of the city was read. |
Mr. Miller presented a resolution for |
the appointment ot a joint committee of
three members of Sclect and six of Com- |-
mon Council to be known as the Centen- |
nial Committee, Agreed to. |
Mr. Forney said he had been further |
informed as to Mrs. Day’s bill for dam- | ;
ages, was now satisfied that it is right, |
and moved the vote by which it was re- |
committed be reconsidered. Agreed to. |
Bill approved. 4
Mr. Ewing asked what was the status |
of the tax levy ordinance, and was in- |,
formed that the conference committee | |
had reported against an abatement for |
prompt payment, and that the report had | -
been defeated in the Common Council. |
Thereupon the Council waded through |-
deep waters from 9 o’clock until a quar- |
ter after 10, trying to discover what they |
ought to do about it. At last they ap- |,
proved the report and Council adjourned. | °
~ COMMON COUNCIL.
A Long Session that was Principally Occu
pied in Useless Debate, |
The lower branch of the City Councils
met Monday evening, there beinga full at
tendance of members. The session was
laigely talion o with debate on trivial
matters and there was no adjournment
until after ten o'clock.
A petition was presented from a num
ber of citizens, which represented that
the objections urged against the building
of market houses in Market Square were
without foundation in fact, and praying
for the removal of the present buildings
and erection of others in their stead. The
petition was received and filed. [lt will
be found in another column in the TELE
GRAPH. ] :
The Water Committee to whom was
referred the resolution that the fire hy
drant standing near the corner of Fourth
strect and Boyd avenue, be removed to
the southeast corner of Fourth street and
Boyd avenue, reported that they dicd not
deem the removal advisable. 'file report
was adopted.
The bill of $5O for services as assistant
city engineer for month of January,
which had been referred to the Finance
Committee, was returned by the latter to
Counecil with the information that the
salary was included in the $12,000 appro
priated for highways,
A petition from citizens living on Sec
ond street, praying for the laying of an
eighteen-inch sewer in said street from
Sayford avenue to Calder street, was re
ferred to Sanitary Committee.
The ordinance in reference to water
pipe assessments, file Common Council
642, created considerable discussion, Mr,
Hargest charged that the ordinance was
not worth the paper on which it was
prieted. It was illegal and intended only
for the benefit of a few, among whom
were members of Council. The debate
grew quite 'warm and an astonishing
amount of eloquence was wasted. It was
passed finally.
t)rdinace 641, file of Common Council,
appropriating 875,000 from proceeds of
sale of lots on old reservoir grounds to
erect new market houses in Market
squarec was read when Mr, Hargest
moved to strike out £75,000 and insert
$60,000, which was after some debate
agreed to. The same gentlemen offered
the following amendments as sections
two and three of the ordinance, which
were adopted, viz: ‘‘And the fund arising
from the sale of the old reservoir groun:
shall be reimbursed by the revenue from
the new market houses in excess of the
revenue now received,”’ and ‘‘that sec
tions 4, 5 and 6of the ordinance 584, to
which this is a sapplement, be and the
same are hereby repealed.”” The title
was also amended to read, ‘‘An ordinance
authorizing the erection of new market
houses in Market square, and to provide
“he means therefor.”” The ordinance was
then laid over for printing.
Theordinance granting permissioa unto
the Philadelphia and Reading and South
Pennsylvania railroad company, or either
of them, to erect and maintain piers on
which to build a railroad bridge or tracks
within the city ot Hairisburg was read
and passed second reading, when on mo
tion of Mr. Bay the vote by which it
passed second reading was reconsidered
for purposes of amendment. Recurring
on second reading Mr. Bay desired to
amend by inserting, ‘‘Provided, That
any damages that might occur to any
property by reason of the building of said
piers, shall be paid for by the said com
panies.”” The amendment was defeated
‘after a long, rambling aud at times spicy
~debate. Mr. Bay did not take his defeat
in the most amia{!e meod. CGn flnrgleé)u
sa%g the yeas were 32, naysl. Ag to.
he committee of conference on Com
mon Council ordinance presented their
report in which they recommend that no
abatement be allowed on the city taxes for
1884. The report was not agreed to—
yeas 16; nays 17.
Ordinance (34, defining the lines of
Sewer district, No. 1, file of Common
Council, with amendments by Select
Council, was read, and the amendments,
changing the lines, agreed to.
~The ordinance relating to the reserva.
tion of a part of the old reservoir grounds
for the erection of a market house &ereon,
Wwas3 passed first reading, together with a
number of others.
Ordinance 639, establishing a Highway
Department came up, the vote by which
It passed secend reading having been
reconsidered. Mr. Fleming moved to
amend the saldyy portion by mak-
Ing in $1,200 instead of 81,500 per
year. Mr. Miller (Second ward) desired
to amend the amendment by making it
$9OO, and spoke in favor of his amend
[ment. Mr. Miiler's amendment was
adopted, and the ordinance was laid over
for reprinting.
The report of the Finance Committee
recommending that the contract for fur
nishing castings for the city for the year
ending May 1, 1885, be awarded to v¥ 0.
Hickok, was amended so as to read
Brown & Reel, by Select Council. This
amendment, after considerable disctission,
in which it was shown that Brown &
Reel’s bid was the lowest, was concurred
in.
The contract for a Blake crusher was
approved, the sum being $1.360. |
On motion of Mr. Miller (Second ward)
the ordinance relating to the construc
tion of a sewer in f%lackbcrry avenue
from Third street to Court avenue, was
laid over until next meeting.
The communication of the Mayor in
reference to the city’s centennial was re
ceived and filed.
A lot of bills were approved and some
other minor husiness disposed of, after
which Council adjourned.

COLORED MASONS. ‘
Members of a Lodge Established
by the Duke of Cumberland.
Burraro, N. Y., March 14.—A re
port having gained general credence
that the colored men of this city had
in working order several Masonic
lodges, which were instituted by oune
Charles E. Newton, who gained con
siderable notoriety as the first colored
man on the city police force, but who
was removed for cause, the following
facts, which are generally unknown
to the fraternity of this city, were
obtained from Newton:
He claims to be working under a
charter issued September 28, 1784,
by Henry Frederick, Duke of Cum
berland, claimed as Grand Master of
Masons at that time, which was
granted to Prince Hall and other
colored men. The lodges working
in this city are : Lodge of St. John’s,
No. 16, Master Masons, forty mem
bers; Erie Lodge, Royal Arch Ma
sons, No. 10, twenty-one members;
Simon Commandery, Knights Tem
plar, twenty-two members; Rose
Croix Lodge, of the Scottish Rite,
seventeen members; Lodge of the
Sublime Prince of the Royal Secret,
six members, one member of which
claims to be a thirty two degree Ma
son. The colored brethren are jubi
lant over the success of their different
lodges, which they claim are growing
rapidly and doing regular work.
