TWIN CITY DILEMMA.
Allegheny's Solicitor, George Elphin
stone, Dvs a Bill
10 HOLD THE CITY UKTIL 1900.
Neither an Inadequate Third Class, Nor
let a Costlj Second.
TEXTOFiTHE SOLICITOR'S OM PLAN
City Solicitor Elphinstone was seen last
'night and said that he was preparing an
act, the substance of which is printed below,
providing for the change of classification of
the City of Allegheny, which 'he thought
would satisfy all parties interested, as it
provides for practically no change except as
to the street and sewer laws.
Those citizens of Allegheny who are op
posed to being placed among the smaller
cities in the third class, and thus subjected
to the minute provisions of the legislation
jroverning that class, ought, he thinks, to
be satisfied, because his proposed act takes
them ont of tnat class, and those citizens of
Allegheny, and there are many of them,
n-ho object to Allegheny's becoming a city
of the second class for fear of the expense
and cumbersome machinery of the govern
ment of Pittsburg, ought to be satisfied, he
also thinks, because it is Jeft optional with
the City of Allegheny through its Councils
Jintil the year 1900 to come into the second
class and have the departmental features of
the Pittsburg government. This they may
do it they see fit.
He has not finished his act as yet, but
The DisrATCH gives it as far ascom
pleted. PRACTICALLY AS IT IS.
By the draft of his act it will be seen, by
reference to its first section, cities are given
all powers necessary to municipal govern
ment, except such as conflict with the Con
stitution and laws of this State and the
Constitution and laws of our nation.
Section 2 vests the municipal taxing power
Wholly in Councils.
Section 3 provides for chance in class for
cities, and gives the City of Allegheny until the
ear 1900 to reflect whether she will adopt the
Pittsburg departmental features or not, as
well as retaining local legislation not expressly
repealed or abrogated by necessary implica
tion relating to tbe city of Allegheny. This
Section also leaves tbe organization of Councils
as it Is until chanced by themselves by
Section 4 provides for the redistribution of
powers upon the adoption of an ordinance, or
not putting it into effect.
Section 5 proTidcs for local laws not re
pealed, and hon they shall be construed un
der the new oi der of things.
Section 6 provides for only two police
Solicitor Elpliinstone has endeavored to
'meet every objection coming either" from
persons opposed to or in favor of Allegheny's
Decomine a city of the second class by leav
ing the city practically as it is.
The assertion of some of the papers that
Allegheny could have special legislation by
publishing notice of its proposed legislation
lor 30 da s prior to its introduction to the
legislature is evidently amistake. Section
7 of Article 3 of our State Constitution ex-
, pressly prohibits the passage of local or
special laws relating to the affairs of cities,
A ACT EELATETG TO CITIES.
Section 1. Be it enacted, etc, That every
city of this Commonwealth shall have all the
powers necessarj for its government except as
limited by law and not conflicting with the Con
stitution and laws of this btate or the United
The intention is hereby to invest the local
Legislature, viz., the City Councils and the
Mayor, with legislative powers for all purposes
of municipal government which the General
Assembly for such purpose could lawfully
Sec 2. The municipal taxing power in cities
of this Commonwealth shall be vested wholly
id ue councils mereoi, ana ine annual levj oi
taxes and water rents shall be based upon full
statements of receipts and expenditures of
every department of the city government, giv
ing the amount and objects of expenditure.
HOW TO CHASGE CLASSES.
Section 3 Whenever tho classification of a
city Is changed by reason of an increaso or a
decrease in population as provided by law,
the following rules shall apply, viz.:
First The CouncUs shall be numerically the
came in the different wards, and be elected at
tbe same time and for the same term as if there
had been no change in classification until
Councils shall by ordinanco pro ide the num
iber of members of Select Councils, which may
consist of one or more members from each
ward as shaU be determined in said ordinance
'and a ratio of representation on which the
membership of Common Councils shall be
Second The officers of any such city except
'as provided by this act shall remain tbe same,
perform the same duties, and be elected in tbe
same manner for the same terms and receive
the same compensation until their trrmsnames,
duties and compensation shall have been duly
readjusted by ordinance duly enacted so as to
conform to tbe laws relating to the class with
which snch city is classified.
' Third The executive powers and duties of
the several officers of any sucn city shall, be
fore the first day of January, Anno Domini 1900,
be assigned by ordinance, to the appropriate
Department pronaeo. lor in tne laws relating
to its changed class, and when so assigned tbe
department, bureaus and offices thus supplied
Ehall he abolished.
, Fourth The street and sewer laws of the
class with which such city is placed shall be in
full force and operation immediately succeed
ing such change, except as to improvements
previously under way or provided for.
OLD PROVISIONS CONTINUE.
Fifth All local or ceneral laws relating to a
city whose class mav be changed by reason of
any law of this Comn-.onwea'th shall be and
remain in full force and virtue unless repealed

Section 4. For the purpose of redistributing
the powers conferred and the dnties imposed
npon the officers and departments of any city
whose classification is changed, contained in
any laws, ordinances, or regulations not

and duty imposed upon any such municipal
executive officer, not inconsistent with the laws
relating to the class into which such citv is
changed, shall be deemed and construed to
"be the power and duty of the proper depart
ment or officer who shall have control of the
subject matter in the appropriate department
created or authorized.
Section 6 Whenever words are used in any
existing law, ordinance, resolution or contract
In force prior to a. change in classification re
ferring to any department or officer of the city
government, and such law, ordinance or reso
, lntion is not supplied or repealed by the laws
relating to the class into which such city shall
Ve changed, they shall be deemed to mean and
apply to the proper officer or department hav
ing relation to the subject matter whether
named or not In the laws appertaining to rh
class into which tbe city is changed or in the
ordinance reorganizing the departments.

One of the most vital and interesting ques
tions connected with the city's pending tri
ennial assessment now confronts the offi
cials. Moreover they have already taken
qnite a long step toward furnishing a fair,
frank and open answer to it The question
is: What rates of valuation ought to be ap
plied to the most valuable of the downtown
business property in the very heart of the
TheTBoard of Assessors has at last com
piled its list for preliminary calculation
upon this most valuable property in the
city, viz: the blocks fronting on Fifth ave
nue, bounded by Smithfield, and Market
streets and Virgin and Diamond al
leys. The Chief Clerk of the of
fice, Samuel M. Clark, has compiled
such a statement of the approximate
figures for several varying depths of the
different properties. This calculation was
computed upon the general estimates of the
board as to "through and half depths"
under the old rule of making assessments.
The figures given below are only approxi
mate calculations, it should be remembered,
and are not yet official. They are given
with the view of obtaining opinions from
the newspapers and those, interested as
citizens and taxpayers.
The board has endeavored to comply with
the law in treating these properties by
ascertaining the cash value of the property
according to the latest sales in the im
mediate vicinity. For instance the Maltby
Hall property on Fifth avenue was sold
about ten days ago to Mr. IT. P. Heed for
5102,500. The property adjoining was based
npon this sale.
These valuations, however, are upon the
ground only. The improvements in the way
of buildings, etc, did cot cuter into tbe
calculations, as they are itemized separately
when the assessments are made. Here are

BASES OF COMPARISON.
The board proposes to place assessments
upon the Diamond alley and Virgin alley
fronts by comparison with the through
depths. "For instance, ifthethroughdepths
are assessed at $3,500 and 120 feet, Or one
half at 52,850, then the 120 feet fronting on
the alley will be tbe difference, $650.
The whole subject is made much clearer
by the accompanying diagram, which may
be examined in detail by those having an
interest in the subject.
Let the reader who is familiar with the
heart of the citv, in looking, npon the dia
gram printed herewith, imagine himself
standing upon the upper or eastern side of
Smithfield street. Upon the right the
arawing shows him the Government andthe

ton, all of which occupy or are seated upon
"through depth" lots, that is, lots running
through to Virgin alley. Then comes the
familiar Masonio Hall lots, running the
half of the square. Other through and
short depths, including Jhe Penny Press lo
cation, will then be recognized. TJpon the
left from Smithfield street we see the Mor
ton lots half depth where the Zimes is
located, and the Coleman property (the
Opera House), built by the Odd Fellows
order and for a time used by them. The
diagram is deficient here in not showing
some of the lots of the Coleman estate as
through depths. Following these we have
the lines ot two apparently insignificant
pieces, bnt yet how valuable!
The Adams Express and the Maltby lots
show next, the latter but recently purchased
by Mr. X. P. Heed at a figure stated to be

night to act as witnesses in the Coroner's in

Court Commissioner, and he makes no de- i
mat to having participated in the riots by
furnishing whisky to the Knights of Labor.
The inquest over the body of Buston was
held yesterday. A large number of wit

have as yet been reached-

we have npon the right the most beautiful
iron building in the city that of the First
National Bank. Back of it, and indeed on
both sides of Fifth avenue, will be seen
upon the map alleys almost opposite one
another, and yet of different names and dif
ferent widths. It is doubtful whether the
nomenclature of these two little passages is
familiar to the general reader even though
he may know that such apertures exist.
Book alley is not mentionable as being
' memorable in any way, and the naming of
it is only to be conjectured in that the Post
printing office stood in place of the bank for
many years. Sturgeon alley is familiar to
those bibulously inclined for Charley Spen
cer's gilded saloon and ante and upper
rooms. It was for a long time a favorite
resort because, not only ot its elegant fur
nishment and supplies of "the best the mar
ket affords," bnt for tbe fact that gentlemen
could drop in there from the most promi
nent thoroughfare of the city with little if
any observation. Judge Ewing squelched

- PBESMTERIAN UNION.
Viovrs of a Member of the Denomination on
tho Conference of tho North and
-South Committees The Attl
tndo of the South.
New York, January 6. The conference
between the Northern and Southern com
mittees of the General Assemblies of the
Presbyterian Church was closed on Monday,
and there's a strong interest among the Pres
byterians to learn what results were accom
plished at this important, conference. Some
good points were learned to-day from a well
known Presbyterian, who was unwilling,
however, to'allow the use of his name. He
believed that the majority of Sonthern
Presbyterians were warmly in favor of an
organic union. The negro question was, of
course, a serious obstacle. He added:
But the case in the committee was this: Tbe
machinery of the Southern Church was in the
hands of those who opposed an organic union.
The Southern committee was opposed to union
because it was-organized to oppose union, and
its directions practically forbade union. But
great points were gamea oy co-operation, r na
tion is gieatly enhanced by the starting of now
church enterprises, rival or competitive in
some degree, m the growing towns of the South
and Southwest. Tbe lack of financial means in
tbe South for aggressive mission work is a
well-known fact Ihe strength of the North
ern Church, with nearly 80d,000 for home mis
sion work, enables it to respond to the calls
made upon it from this section to enter fields
which the Southern Church must necessarily

together with tho social reception by the
Presbyterian Union, have been wisely
followed by an adjournment to meet in
the capital city of the New South At
lanta. A meeting thero will result in mingling
Northern and Southern people together. All
these are steps in the right direction. The day
of argument has been in progress since the
close of the war. Manyof the old Southern
leaders have passed away, and those who re
main are becoming more liberal. The young
men do not inherit the bitterness and feeling
of exclusion. It Is not a principle, only a feel
ing, that prevents a union, and hence, when
these old leaders die, those social feelings
which are kindled, and those bonds which are
formed, will be strong and lasting.

For instance. This matchless sale, as its name implies, means
