opinion of the Ordihknoa, he raplied
"I do uo: kuow vhathar OOBlolll are

u;u s'.vstu to understand by aoine ir
sou that the iatrodnottok ot thoordtn
UaM was iuteuied to put at least one
ot tbe uivtubcrj ia an embrriing po

occurrence $jm time ago, (or the

"If tha ordinance ia introduced iu

iug that it is ataaifaatly unfair at this
time, and I have lesa hesitation iu lay
tag tbat iu ctse the or iinauae bicomea

L make this as a threat. It is not iu

as tbat contemplated, an warranted,
and if it is impose! tue public gener
ally, will not censure me for seeing
tbac the tax. if it bj pail shall not
come direct frutu the company. Toi
s a mere matter of business.
"To make my meaning mora clear.'
continued Mr. Archer, "let me say
i'bie company ia paying far more than
an equivalent to the revenue tbat
would ax derived from taxing the
pole jl conrsa it is nut paid to the
city direct, bu' tbat class of people
wbo stand noal in uead of it, tne work
ing men and women of tbe community,
are .wmng tbe benefits. Tne benefits
I refer to are tbe radaead fares, wnere
by tba poorest can aff ,rd transporta
tion wnan necessary. '
kmms ukpwa is Moot
As proof of the statement male above
Mr Archer, after a carefal perusal of
tbe paasangar receipts accauata for tha
sail "Lioriag las: year 907 180
v .rii-g people hare bean carried at
i cents each, a saving directly to
'rse people of 4. Wi.-iG There have
laM Cen transported Pi, 940 icbooi

or a saving to tbat claaa of f3.VjS,oU
Dnric tba same period tha number of
free transfers tbat had been md by
tbe peopl-i was 1, '.' 47 1, abowinir a
saving to lha people of f,t.8Ti W Tbii
makes a grand total of $M,M,10, and
notwithstanding thll very llber.il pol
icy i am plea-td to state that there has
been a small increase in the gross re
ceipta of tha company.
"When Team to Hcranton and be
can conversant with ita method I in
formed tbe officials of onr company
that the citizens generally aeems 1 dll
poaad to allow fait treatment to tha
railway compiny i also further in
formed them tha, it would be poiitif,
to abow liberal apirit in their treat
mentin retarn. I was advised to use
my own ligemant in tne pramlsea
and I have not lost an opportunity of
showing to the people that weappra
ciated their friandaliip and were aolici
ton for therr wants.
"It may ie argned that if this liberal
ir, afa of traatTient Were abrogated the
company woold be the losr There is
no likelihood of snob, a contingency,
for more than two thirls of the people
would have to atop rtdlog entirely be

Speaking of ex peridltnrea. Mr Archer
said "Hi nee ita acquisition of the

mora than pWO.000 or tl.WO a day has

IHK fAfiM A KK LNSIiiniLi,
"lint, Mr Archer," iusrled the re
porter, do you not agree that the
number of polea eracted in the city la
in atly Iu of what la riqulred
and that they mar more or leas the
city's beauty? '
"1 do There egg le uo denial of
that fact, but the rmdy daaa not lie
In taxing the point. While I do not
with to lie . : i . . :J , bnlrig untluua
to dictate the policy to lie pursued, I
would anggaat that the propar remedy
for exiatiog conditlooa la in the paa
ange of an ordinntioe cotiipelliog nil
the pole lutereats In tbe city to
nseaaiiigle or double line of poles
where wires are now run, and IttOO n
courie would decraaae the number of
POitg in many placai more than M per
oent. For instance, one block on
I, ackawannu avenue ha twenty aevon
poles, when at the moat five on auber
aide would sufilce. On many valuable
cornen there are groups of from thrne
to five polea, when n aingle one would
fully accomodate all the interest repre
aented," As the repirter rote to take his de
parture Mr. Archer aaid: "1 want it
distinctly understood that 1 am making
no plen nor do 1 want any auoh con
struction to be placed on what 1 have
said, I do not hesitate to say that 1
consider auy tax an imposition, in view
of what tho company has done ainoe
taking charge of the lines in this city
In addition theta still remain to bs
built about twelve mile of track, must
of which, it is expeuted, will be con
structed during the coming season."

At the previous Hunting a sugge'
liou was tuado that watchers ha ap
pointed for each voting district. It
was decided last night tu have each
ward 0 lunuitlee land a list of watch
ers who will bs on duty to tha execu
live committee. This body will obtain
watcher's certificates for them. This
move is necessary for on i particular
lean hi The ballots as piintel hava
tho "for or against bridges" printed
at the foot of the Uepubltcau ticket
and the park portion at the bottom of
tha Democratic tlokat Now the natural
inference would be that by marking a
crokl iu the Republican circle the vote
would be recorded iu favor of the
bridges. Such is not ths case. Tha
crnis "X" must b marked in its proper
place in the "bridge' portion of the
ballot This question ha lietn placed
in the hands of the executive commit
tee, who will try and have tne ballots
arranged iu a more comprehensive
ma uoer.
Mauy ol the ward comtnitUai have
designated u man for each block in the
wards. These men have been booming
the bridges and report gratifying sue
At the last bri lii election the Sixth
ward voted against thl improvement as
follows First district, 11 for, 78
again.si, Second distriet. for, 04
against. M. 11 Uriffia, Democrat, was
present at last night's meeting and
said the majority would bo reversed
this time
Another meeting will ba held Satur
day evening.
Altogether, the meeting and aenti
menta expressed were most pronounced
evidences that Soranton will have her
bridge Not a voice , : .. t a doubt
that tha appropriations would be de
