Judgment on Merits.
The Controller says in his communication:
"The amount above provided in sinking fund
appropriation No. 29 is nominal. For many
years until I8S6 there was appropriated $13,500,
when the accumulations were used in payment
of street bonds. Since then the amount was
reduced as an enforced economy, but a mini
mum of 5.000 per annum should be placed in
this fund for the next 23 jears to meet certain
funded debts not otherwise provided for. The
law in this matter has been evaded and ignored
in spirit and letter, as mav be learned by refer
rinrrto pace 111, sections SS and 89, of the City
'The appropriation No. 40, municipal con
solidated sinking fund, is a new item and rep
resents what should have accumulated during
the past 11 years, when no appropriations were
maue for the purpose. It had been overlooked
by mv predecessors, and when I discovered the
fact 1 endeavored to create this fund a few
jears ago, but was unable to press the point.
The law relating to this point is explicit, and I
insist that the full appropriation be made now
to cover the omission."

HARRISON HAS THE FULL LIST,
IMPORTANT WORD FK0M ASSESSORS
The first thing that drew fire in Select
Council yesterday, on concurrences with
Common Council, was a resolution that the
State House of Representatives be asked to
prevent the passage of Senate bill Io. 4,
limiting the duration of the lien of county,
city, borough, township and school taxes
find municipal improvement loans.
Mr. Eobertson denouueed the bill as
Vicious and dangerous.
Mr. Lambie characterized it as unjust in
the extreme, and a mere scheme to lighten
lawyers' labors more than anythinc else,
and that they ought to be legislating for
safety and no one's convenience. He said it
would let out the Penn avenue compromis
ers who owed the city 5125,000 under the
compromise. The Supreme Court had de
cided that they could not be made to pay for
their improvements, bnt at the same time
as they had been benefited and ought to pay
something, the court had refused to talje
the cloud off their titles, and Mr. Lambie
held it would be an outrage to
relieve them. He said that for
0 years legislation had been
directed to make security greater in public
matters than in private from the fact that
individuals look after their private inter
ests while they were apt to be careless as to
the general welfare. Subsequently Mr.
Lambie ttated that the loss on Penn avenue
liens would be much more than 5125,000.
The resolution passed, as also another ask
ing the Legislature to refrain from enact
ing any legislation concerning Pittsburg
until it had heard from a joint committee of
five irom Councils, headed by the presidents
of both bodies. Mr. McKee and others of
fered amendments, but they were steadily
Up to this time there was considerable
ght, bnt members hastened to Ehow that
they still had some of the milk of human
kindness in them by passing a resolution
that children's carts., etc, drawn by ponies,
dags and goats be exempt from payment of
vehicle tax. The perambulator is also ex
empt. ELECTRIC POLES XSD TRACTION.
An ordinance granting the East End
Electric Light Company permission to erect
poles was attempted to be made more
stringent, by amendments offered and
talked for by Messrs. McKee, Sullivan and
Cox; but it finally passed, with but one
weight attached, and that by Mr. Lambie,
that the poles be erected under the super
vision of the Chief of the Board of Public
An ordinance which passed finally was
one giving the Central Passenger Railway
Company right of way, etc.
Mr. Robertson called up an ordinance re
pealing an ordinance granting natural gas
companies the right to lay pipes in streets,
etc, and this led to an animated fight be
tween him and Mr. Lambie.
Mr. Robertson said the decision of the
Supreme Court had left the city to the
mercy of any parties who chose to tear up
streets, and that notwithstanding it was
thought to be in the line of securing com
petition, there was in fact none. Mr. Lam
bie said he agreed that competi
tion was very nearly choked off,
bnt thought Robertson's ordinance would
complete the asphyxiation. Mr. Robertson '
said the repeal of the, ordinance would re
vive that of August, 1885, giving the city
control of the streets; but Mr. Lambie held
that the effect would be just the opposite,
and cited the constitution of 1874 in proof,
otherwise the proposition would have merit.
He moved to refer back to the committee,
as he said one law could not be revived by
the repeal of another.
THE GAS CA3T COME IN.
Mr. Lambie's motion prevailed, and a
whisper floated around the chamber that
"the object of the repeal was to prevent
Jones & Laughlins', Park Bros & Co. et al,
entry into the city eo as to secure monopolv
of the fuel, notwithstanding Mr. Robert
Eon's claim that his repealing ordinance
was intended to have the opposite effect.
The matter could not be taken in out of
the wet before Mr. Cox remarked anent a
proposition to have the Board of Public
"Works supervise such work, that the chief
thereof had decided thit the streets were
wide enough to allow the Philadelphia Gas
Company to dig a canal along them if it
When the protest was read from the Miller
Forge Company against giving a contract to
a Cleveland company Mr. Bigelow made
the same explanation given in Common
Council, and it was efiective, the protest
being put on file.

In Common Council Mr. Magee pre
sented a resolution asking the Honse of
Representatives to defeat the Senate hill
limiting the duration oi liens for taxes and
municipal improvements. Unanimously
The Chair read a communication from the
Chief of the Department of Public Safetv in
regard to the Twenty-seventh ward hose
house. Chief Brown recommended a hose
and engine house, near the intersection
of Washington and Brownsville avenues,
and another on the line of the Thirty-second
ana Thirty-fifth wards. Mr. Binder moved
that the ordinance for a hose house on Myr
tle street, Twenty-seventh ward, be indefin
itely postponed. Lost and Mr. Carr had
the ordinance seut back to the Committee of
Thp report of the Board of Awards, pre
viously published, was approved. The
Miller Forge Company sent in a communi
cation saying that they had presented the
lowest bid for a crank for engine 3 at the
water works, bui by a clerical error had
neglected to sign the bid, and it was con
sequently tnrown out They asked that
new bids be taken.
Mr. Bigham said the difference in the
bids was $000, and if it could be done with
out injury to the service he would like to
Chief Bigelow said the Miller Forge Com
pany had had a full set of papers furnished
it that a child could have bid on. When
the bids were opened one was unsigned,
which afterward proved to be the Mil
ler company's bid. After some trouble
a few months ago the Board of Awards de
cided not to consider bids that were irregu
lar. For this reason the bid was rejected.
Mr. Bigelow asked that the board be sus
tained. If it were not, bids of an irregular
nature would be put in until good bidders
would quit, and only scalawags would do
city work. The board was approved.
The Select Council resolution calling on
the heads of departments for a list of their
employes, their duties and salaries, was
passed. The ordinance repealing the ordi
nance for the opening of a part of Boquet
street wa passed finally.
The following communication was re
ceived and filed:
Pittsburg, January 28. 1SS9.
To the President and Members of Select and Com
Gentlemen The undersigned Board of As
sessors respectfully report that they have com
pleted the triennial assessment of 1SS9, and au
calculations based upon appeals so far con
sidered and acted upon, believe that the aggre
gate valuation or the several subjects of taxa
tion will be $191,072,000.
In making this assessment the requirements
oi the new city charter have been strictly ad
hered tn, and the board, from the inception of
the work, throughout its progress and until its
close has encouraged its lullest publicity in all
its details. The result ot this has been
to bring to them the oninions of very
many taxpayers and owners, under oath
and otherwise, resulting in labor
for this office unprecedented. We have adhered
to the maxim that in a "multitude of counsel
ors there is wisdom." and through these we
hope to have attained in the end an approxi
mate equalization of values throughout the
city. Owing to the innumerable opinions thus
brought forward requiring examination, com
parison and digestion, the completion of the
work is delayed beyond our expectation. We
find that this procedure has worked well, and
that blunders of Judgment, clerical errors,
etc, are thus '-caught up." and that
the result fixed by us in almost
every instance is satisfactory to the
taxpayer. The almost universal query from
intelligent property owners is this: "Arevou
bringing up all people to the cash value, and is
the equalization to be all over the city I If so,

The requirements of the new city charter as

some feeling, but It bas been of inestimable
benefit to us as one of the means in determin

rSrtCIAI. TELEGRAM TO THE D1SFATCII.1
Washington, January 28. Though it
is the general impression here that the jour
ney of Senator Allison to Indianapolis
means that he is certain to accept the Treas
ury portfolio in the Cabinet of President
Harrison, those who have been closest to
him here are not yet of that opinion. The
Senator has been so positive in his assertions
that under no circumstances would he ac
cept a Cabinet position, "hat his friends j
cannot believe that the persuasive powers
of the President-elect will be sufficient to
change his views.. Not only once but re
peatedly has he asserted that nothing could
induce him to change his ground on this
rSFZCIAL TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCH.1
Indianapolis, January 28. William
B. Allison is bnmping along over the Penn
sylvania Railroad toward Washington to
night with full details as to the next Cabi
net stowed away under his No. Si night
cap. The matter of the Cabinet is prac
tically settled, and Allison knows it all,
but all that anyone in Indianapolis, outside
of B. Harrison, knows about it yet would
be dear at a nickel. It isn't even known
here whether Allison himself accepted or
declined the invitation to leave the Senate
for the Cabinet.
Within 24 honrs from now, however, will
be a good time to fish for Cabinet news in
other and widely distant parts of the coun
try. Messages now on the way here, or that
will be on the way here within a day or
two, will convey to the Hon. Benjamin
Harrison the assurances of the distinguished
consideration of several gentlemen, and the
information that they regard the invitation
extended to them of-such-and-sucb a date as
a command to obey, which will be at once a
dutv and a pleasure.' Anybody that can
guess the signatures upon those messages
can win first prize in the Cabinet guessing
match, hands down.
the invitations sent out.
The formal communications making ten
ders of Cabinet places have at last been sent
out, it is said upon excellent authority, and
answers are to be expected within two days.
Senator Allison remained under guard at
General Harrison's hcuse until 2 o'clock
this afternoon, the President-elect sparing
no pains to fulfill his promises that the Sen
ator should not be bothered by the news
paper men. The two statesmen did not
leave the house, except for a short walk
downtown, and then they stopped nowhere
long enough to give the newspaper men a
chance. The Senator's trunk was sent up
to General Harrison's honse in the morning,
and was brought back to the station on the
same hack, summoned by telephone, that
carried the Iowa statesman. A stalwart
minion of the transfer company accompan
ied Senator Allison to the ticket office,
where he bought his ticket.
"Keep me away from the reporters, if you
can," said the Senator to the minion.
"Iord, Senator, there's two of them right
here behind you now," he replied.
Senator Allison surrendered at that an
swer, and was amiability personified.
"Now, boys," he said, "yon know I'd like
to tell you a column, but this has been a
private conversation, you see, and I can't
say a word."
EIGHT TO THE POINT.
"Well, can we say whether you are going
to be Secretarv of trie Treasury?"
"Now, you know I can't say that"
"It needn't be told as coming from you,
Senator. We'll make somebody else say it."
"But nobody can say it."
This was the nearest thing to a declara
tion as to himself that the Senator would
make, and it probably meant nothing, al
though it might have been interpreted to be
a hint that he was not going to be Secretary
oi tne treasury, ne merely laugheu when
asked as to the stories about his going to
take the State Department instead of the
Treasury, and remarked that the story
was a good one. He came to the
station alone, and no one but the reprrters
appeared to bid him goodby before the train
started at 3 o'clock. As an indication that
he had a good deal upon his mind, it may
be mentioned that he forgot SI change that
was due him at the ticket office. It was
picked up and carried to him by a reporter.
Although he had plenty of time to make
his train he seemed hurried and excited,
but very happy through it all.
After Senator Allison had gone, General
Harrison strolled down town and stopped
at a shoe store where he has been accus
tomed to deal. "I want a pair of shoes that
I can walk about in in Washington," he
said. "I expect to do a good deal of walk
ing there, and I want shoes made especially
for it. They'll have to be high, because
the mud is pretty bad there sometimes."
ms foot short and stout.
He finally settled upon extra high-laced
shoes, of heavy leather, with a double sole.
Six and a half was the Bize, and they will
have to be made on a "D" last, to be wide
enough for his foot.
Judge C. H. Moore, of Plattoburg, N. Y.,
was one of to-day's callers. He has been
somewhat prominent in the rural districts
of New York, as a stump speaker and a Re
publican politician, and is said to be, a
strong friend of Warner Miller, in whose
interest he called upon General Harrison.
The South sent up its usual contingent
to-day in the persons of R. T. Dow, a well
known politician of Atlanta, who was a
candidate for elector upon the Republican
ticket in Georgia last fall, and who is now
trying to get a Republican daily paper
started at Chattanooga, and Dr. W. H.
Stillwell, of Humboldt, Tenn. The colored
delegation from Georgia is expected to ar
rive during the night.
State Auditor E. W. Poe, of Ohio, spent
a little while with the President-elect to
day, bnt insists there was no politics in his
visit. The run of ordinary callers has been
much lighter than usual, on account ot the
disagreeable wet weather, and also because
General Harrison has lately found
so many excuses, in conference with
statesmen and other business, to
refuse to see callers, and to make
them wait an hour or two for a three-minute
interview, that people are getting a little
discouraged about running out to sco the
President-elect every time they come to
town to do a bit of shopping and sell a load
kept awake by the babt.
For the information of Mrs. Harrison and
Mrs. McKee, it can be said that the babies
are well, excent that little Benny wants his
mamma, and is fractious when she won't
come when he calls. Grandpa has to get up
in the night two or three times, lately, and
dandle the little fellow or walk
about the house with him in
his arms in order to get him to
sleep after he has been crying for his
mother. Mrs. Harrison's sister, Mrs. Lord,
from Washington, is helping to take care of
the children, and gets along very well, ex
cept when Benny wakes up in the night and
cries, and then grandpa has to be called.
question. It is believed by these close
friends that his journey to Indianapolis is
the result of his refusal to accept a Cabinet
office that had been formally tendered to
him, and that he merely goes now out of
courtesy to the President-elect, who desires
to accomplish by personal solicitation what
he could not by'letter or messenger.
Mr. Allison's reasons, sav his Senatorial
friends, are strong enough to deter anybody
in his position from taking a Cabinet office.
In the first place, he looks forward to again
being a candidate for the Presidency in 1892.
He recognizes that his chances for success in
a contest for the nomination are slender, on
account of his residence in a snre Repub
lican State, and that even after the nomina
tion the chances for success and defeat are
about equal, but with all this he has the bee
in his bonnet, and it will not 6top buzzing
nntil he has had another whirl or two in a
But leaving the question of the Presidency
aside, he esteems his position in the Senate
far more desirable than that of a Cabinet
official. He is perfectly sure ofa re-election.
He would begin another term of service
next year, which would not be half expired
at the time hen he would be laid on the
shelf in case he should not be nominated or
elected President or get a new lease of life '
in me uaDinet ot leas, suouia ne ne re
tired in 1893 he would find his Senatorial
position occupied. There willbe no Senator
ial vacancy in Iowa until March 3. 1893,
and for that vacancy he would have to con
test with Senator Wilson, the incumbent,
which would be a discourtesy not to be in
dulged by .such a man as Senator Allison.
Iu view of all these reasons, the close
friends of Senator Allison will not be con
vinced until they hear it from his own
mouth that he has accepted or will accept a
Cabinet position. They are willing to give
odds that if Harrison has induced him to
come on with a hope of persuading him to J
