(Continued from First Pago. )
bo we ought to take on ayo and nay
vote to see who is dolnfr it. I move
that we table this resolution temporari
ly." This mqtion was carried, and while
Bn item of the report of the committee
on claims was being read Mr. Isbell
conferred with Councilman Fuller. Af
ter a few moments' conversation Mv.
Isbell moved to take the resolution
Irom the table, and It was so voted.
He then announced that he had looked
tip the charter and found that, on page
!6 of the charter it was required, in or
fler for a recommendation of the board
tof finance to pass the common council,
that it receive the vote of five-sixths of
the members present, not necessarily
five-sixths of the entire board.
A yote on the resolution recommend
ed was then taken and it resulted in a
vote of 22 to S in favor of it, the three
counpllmen voting against the resolu
tion being Messrs. Cooney, Cronan and
President Burton at first declared the
Resolution lost, as it had not received a
flva-slxtha vote,- After thjnking and
figuring a moment, however. Council
man Fuller jumped up and claimed that
the resolution had received a five-sixths
vote and had passed. President Bur

The recomemndatlon of the commit
tee on claims that Abigail M, Hiller be
given leave to withdraw her claim for
abatement of her sewer assessment of
$862.62, was adopted.
A resolution was offered by Council
man Fuller to instruct the board of
finance to include in the estimates next
year a specific sum to harden Wall
street from York to State streets. Mr.
Fuller said that the director of public
works had already included in the es
timates a sum to pay for the harden
ing of Wall street, between York and
Temple streets, and explained that his
resolution was to authorize the increase
Of the estimate to a sum sufficient for
the entire street.
Councilman C. E. Burton saw an op
portunity and said: ''The gentleman
from the First is doubtless working for
the interest of his ward. Others here
are also working for the interests of
their wards. The gentleman from the
First has been one of the most strenu
ous oDDonents of street hardening. We
have been called ward grabbers by the
newspapers no I wont say by the
newspapers and all sorts of names,
charged with making deals, etc. Now,
I for one, am not opposed to the har
dening of Wall street, but thought that
this was a good chance to remark upon
the gentleman opposing the $26,000 ap
proprlation and then recommending to
the board of finance that it include in
the estimates a sum to pay for the har.
flening of Wall street."
The resolution was adopted.
v The councilmen concurred with the
Bldermen in referring the petition of
'Anthony Carroll, in which that gentle
man makes charges against the ordi

retrenchment and reform to invest!

planting, of any other than elm trees
along the streets without permission
from the mayor, be given leave to with
draw; was adopted.
As the amount of $26,672.72 appropri
ated last year for the hardening of cer

cry at the end of the present year if
not used before that time for the pur
pose for which it was appropriated.
Councilman C. E, Burton last night of
fered a resolution instructing the board
of finance to inelude in next year's es
timates the sums appropriated last
year for street hardening. After some
" discussion as to the advisability of the
Use of the word "instruct" in the reso
lution, it was passed. Councilman Ful
ler' held that the common council had
no authority to order the board of
finance to do anything, that the word
eUould be "request." Captain Dowe
thought the word should be instruct,

Councilman Brown said: "If -re re

Reports for the year's work may be

one of general concern.
The impression prevailed during the
summer months that nothing was be

school board appointments. Those who
attend the meetings on Thursday will
have the opportunity to hear the very

A VANISHING TYPE.
Only lately have Philadelphians be
gun to realize and reflect upon the dis
appearance of the Quakers as we knew
them; only lately has it been brought
homo to us that a gradual obliteration
of the old uncompromising orthodoxy
has set in which means the ultimate
absorption of the sect. Even now, rare
as is the old garb on the streets where
it was such a common sight not bo
many years ago, the assertion that the
society is diminishing would meet with
doubt and hesitation. We are so fami
liar with the Quaker, he is so necessary
and potent a type in Philadelphia, that
we would not accept the warrant even
of statistics; yet, now that the visible
limit has been reached, what can we do
but awake to the change? We see few
broad-brimmed hats and drab bonnets
where we once saw many; of those who
wear them, the most are oldWnd tremb
ling. If there are young Quakers, how
are we to recognize them? Not by their
dress, at any rate, except in so far as
plainness of cut and sooriety of color
still rule the taste of Friends, whether
wealthy or in moderate circumstances;,
the distinctive costume is being laid
aside, with many of the distinctive cus
toms. And why? Because the Society
is losing its control over its younger
members? because its rigid rules no
longer suffice to hold in check the hu
man spirit, with Its unconquerable love
of freedom? This is the common expla
nation, and the one desired by those
who love romance. Thomas Wharton
AN AWKWARD PREDICAMENT.
Professor Max Muller, in Cosmopolis,
in the coin-rooms of the British muse
urn, where, during a visit of a number
of gentlemen and ladies, it was ob
served that a very valuable and almost
unique Sicilian coin had disappeared.
All the gentlemen present in the room
at the time had to be searched, ana no
one objected except one. He protested
his innocence, but declared that noth
ing would induce him to allow his pock-
ets to be searched. All the otner visi
tors were allowed to go home, but he
was detained while the coin-room was
swept, and every coiner searched once
more. At last the missing coin was
found in a chink of the floor.
Even apology was made to the sus.
pected person, but he was asked why
he had so strongly objected to being
searched. He then produced from his
pocket another specimen of the very
same coin. "I came here," he said, "to
compare my specimen, which is very
perfect, with the only other specimen
which is thought to be superior to mine,
and almost unique in the world. Now,
suppose," he added, "that you had not
touna your coin, ana haa iouna.jny
specimen in my pocket, would anybody
havo believed in my Innocence?"
New Armory Rules Unpopular Blues'
Social Club BallPlans of the Naval
All the members of the state National
Guard do not take kindly to the new
regulaions recently put in force at the
armory. These forbid smoking or loit
ering on the floor of the armory, while
privates are excluded from the armory
and company roomB entirely on Sun
day. Captain Allen does not find it difficult
to enforce the orders of the adjutant
general in the matter, but while the
men render the obedience which mili
tary discipline requires, it is evident
that many look upon the rules as a
hardship imposed upon them.
After the drill of the Horse Guard
last evening the new orders were read
to the company. One of the officers of,
the company remarked upon the hard
ship of the rule and expressed the opin
ion held by many others that as the
rules would tend to cut oft the social
life of the armory, always one of the
strong attraction for enlisting men in
the National Guard, it would insomuch
injure the National uuara.

ders were Issued he has had occasion
to speak to only one man about smok

President Smith's Paper Concerning the
President Smith of Trinity college
read an Interesting paper November 2,
at Hartford, under the auspices of the
Connecticut Historical society, giving a
detailed review of "the Six Nations'!
or the Iroquois confederation. When
the French first knew them they con
sisted of five nations: The Mohawks,
the fiercest of all Indians, the Oneldas,
Onondagas, Cayugas and Senecas,
These Indians were pure children of na
ture and their language shows that
they had no reflection. Ferocity was
cultivated as an accomplishment.
President Smith paid a tribute to the
Dutch for their patience, perseverance
and just treatment of the Indians,
treating them as men.
When the English overcame the
Dutch in 1664 they sensibly cultivated
the friendship of the Indians, Influenced
doubtless by the Dutch.
The sufferings of the French Jesuits
at the hands of the Iroquois and the
magnanimous conduct of the Dutch at
Albany were shown. President Smith's
paper was a carefully prepared, phllo
Bophtcal history of the connection of
the Six Nations with the contest be
tween the French and English for the
control of this continent, and received a
vote of thanks from the society.
At the business meeting the society
voted its approval of the course of
Charter Oak historical lectures to be
given for the Instruction of pupils of
the public schools.
" J. HAMMOND TRUMBULL.
The following minute regarding1 the
late Hon. J. Hammond Trumbull was
adopted. It was prepared by a com
mittee consisting of Dr. Charles J.
Hoadly, Dr. Samuel Hart and Frank B.
"The Connecticut Historical society
takes the earliest opportunity of plac
ing upon record a tribute of respect to
the memory of the Hon. James Ham
mond Trumbull, LL. D., for more than
twenty-five years its president and long
one of its most honored and valued
members. Conspicuous as he was for
his learning In various departments of
knowledge, he will always be remem
bered for his wide acquaintance with
the history of this colony and state, and
for the contributions which he made to
its published annals. While others will
gratefully acknowledge their indebted
ness to him in other matters, this socie
ty honors him as a historical student of
rare ability, unwearied patience and
investigation, and great clearness and
accuracy of statement. And the socie
ty desires to convey to his family the
assurance of respectful sympathy."
Prices Fluctuated Widely Showing; Fever-
- inh Tone of Speculative Mind.
New York, Noy. 8. Prices of stocks
fluctuated very widely -find very easily,
traversing" a range up and down many
times in the course "of the day. This in
dicated a feverish tone of the specula
tive mind, a readiness to dispose of
holdings on a slight intimation of possi
ble unfavorable developments and an
equally nervous anxiety ore the part of
short sellers to cover their contracts on
any appearance ofia, hardening tenden
cy In the market. The most formida
ble event in the day's happenings so far
as any effect on values was concerned
was the further postponement of the
announcement of the supreme court's
decision in the Nebraska maximum
freight rate case, which had been con
fldently expected to-day. There has
been assurances felt in "Wall street cir
cles that the verdict In this case would
be favorable to the railroads, but if a
favorable verdict Wd been announced
to-day profit taking would probably
have led to declines in the stacks af
fected. The news of the postponement
led to the circulation of rumors that
the verdict would affirm the validity of
the contested statute. This rumor In
duced much selling. Special weakness
was induced also in tha, coalers by the
very discouraging reports of the condi
tion of that Industry due to over pro
duction, cutting of prices and the per
sistent mild weather. There was not
lacking the stook Spanish war scare,
which was made to do duty again to
day. These demoralizing factors did
not begin to be felt until some slight
improvement over Saturday's close had
been effected In prices, Sugar leading
the way. There was a notable im
provement, also from the low point be
fore the close of the day due to cover
ing of shorts and on a supreme court
decision against the interstate com
