Plans That Will Co Presented by City Engineer to the Com the mittee Tonight. The joint strnets and bridgis commit ton of council!, which meets toni;;!-,! will probably come to soma delink conclusion in regard to the grade of bwetlund street, which, rs an" ip proach to the Linden street bridge, has during the pist few months been quit bone of contention. rronerty owners nnv allege I that a decrease of tl.e established grade would occasion (laning by filling botweeu Seventh and Nimh streets, or by a via duct from the Swetlaud street bridJ to Ssvouth street. In accordance with a resolution of couucils.the city engineer has prepared and will submit to the committee meeting a drawing snowing the es tablished and proposed 7 or 0 per cout. grades. The present established grade from Sixth to Seventh street is on a decliue ot li.lG per cnt. At Wright court it inclines at 8.U per cent, to Eighth street and Ninth street. One of the new proposed grades is at an incline of 1 5 per cent, to beventn street wher the grade will have to be raised several feet. At Eighth street a bridge is proposed where a 7 per cent, grade will begin and continue to the Swetlan.4 street bridge at Ninth stroet. The 86 ond propose! grade starts from a poi.it lower than tbe established grade at beventn street ana wouiu con tiuue at au incline of 7 per cent, to Eighth street. From this point to Ninth street the grade would be 0 per cent. The proposed grades from bwet land street to North Main aveuuo va ne from 7.2 to 10 41 per cent. , "From the Eauks." ASPHALT OR VITRIFIED BRICK? That Is the Question Which Is Now Agitating the Property Owners on Washington Avenue. Tbe meeting of the paving commit tee of select council this evening will be attended, probably, by a large num ber of property owners wno are con tending among themselves on the su periority of sheet asphalt or vitrified brick as a pave lor t ranuiin avenue le- tween Spruce and Vine streets. The ordinance providing for nn as phalt pave was referred to a committee from select council June 21. The measure stipulates that the cost is not to exceed more than $ ' 05 p r suuure vard, assessed by ttie foot-front rule. Undoubtedly the ordinauce would have been favorably reported two weeks ago and be on its passage now, but for a counter petition signed by a large num ber of property owners, who pray that vitrified brick be the material used, the cost to be not more than $2.45 per square ynrd. . The petition lor a uricit pave was in troduced in common council July Vi. in the form of a concurrent resolution directing the city clerk to publish the petition with the names of tbe signers. Select council has not yet concurred in the resolution. Among the asphalt constituency are: W. C. Connell, the Dickson Manufact uring company, the Delaware and Hud son Caual company and Mrs. Maria Zeidler. Those who favor vitrified brick are: John M. Kiu merer, A. E. Bittenbender, U T. Hlack, Dr. John Burnett, Senator M. E. McDonald and Dr. B H.Throop and others. Nearly all who now favor brick hud previously petitioned for the asphalt pave. . RAN DOWN A CHILD.

The cold-blooded mnrder of Euaauuel Loro at Old Forge was recalled yester day by a mixed no case tried before Aldorinan Fit.-iiiiiraoiiS. The defend ants, Louis Marmo, sr , and Louis Marmo, jr., cousins by relation, belong to the faction that offered no obstacle to the escap-t of Medala. but ttie charge is not clearly shown thut ineeo sym pithizers abetted in the escape. The bondmau who qualified in the sum of $1,800 for both, was Joseph Saloi, who ran u rival barber shop to the murdered Loro in Old Forge.

The Radicks and the folks on whom they called are Polanders and the defendants are Italians. The latter are aceusod of having committod simple and aggra vated assault on Mrs Radick and, win subjecting her to this treatment, tul ing tho liberty of stealing her flO gold watch. They furnished bail, us above stated. Then the Marnios brought a eoutiter- suit against the Radicks for assault and battery aud bail was furnished by them to appear at court.

The woman told the doctor that one of her assailants wanted her to come and live with him and his chum agreed to shoot her btnbaud so that his frieud might not be troubled with his protes tations against her leaving his bed und board, bho would dot consent to this plan and as u consequence she was thrashed.
