WILL" COST AT LEAST $200,600 Ordinance Which '.Was Referred to Committee Provides for Kabmittiag the Question at the Spring Election. Another Measure Also Provides Tor n Municipal Industry, That the City Shall Establish an Asphalt Kepair Plant. Common Councilman Noone, of the Eighteenth ward, believes the city Fhoulil own and conduct an electric light plant. He took the first step last night In common council meeting by Introducing an ordinance ' which was referred without debate to the llfiht and water committee. Mr. Noone's ordinance provides for Increasing the city debt to the amount of $jnu.oiKi for the purpose of purchas ing luml. erectintr the necessary build ings nml equipping them with the ne cessary apparatus nnd machinery. The funds are to he raised by an Issue of city bonds, the question to be submit ted to the city's electors at the next hction on the third, Tuesduy of Febru aiy. .Mr. Noone Is sanguine of the even tual success of his Idea. To a Tribune reporter he suld: "It now costs the city about $50,000 per year for electric light and this large sum has been for years gradual ly Increasing and will continue to in crease. I have Investigated the mat ter carefully anil have the opinions of competent electrical engineers that the city cun maintain a fully equipped plant for from llu.noo to $15,000 per year, which includes labor, fuel, cur rent materials nnd repairs. "The $aiO.(K)0 estimated cost includes poles, wire, arc and Incandescent lamps nnd In fact every detail neces sary to a complete plant. Hardly a meeting of either branch of councils takes place without an objection from one or more councllmen to the rapidly Increasing expenditure for lights. The corporations now furnishing light are certainly making a profit, and there's no reason why the city shouldn't econ omize to whatever amount that prollt Is. I tigure that the saving will be at least KVi.fMK) and more likely $:!U.tiOO the first year und that the sum will In crease rapidly thereafter. NOOXK IS SANlU'IXK. "Xo, the project Is not new to mp. I have delayed presenting un ordinance until now in order to engage the inter est of ciniticilmen und others who will support the measure. When It Is con sidered by Chairman Ullroy nnd Messrs. Jlcftrall. Cordon and Keller, of the light und water committee, of which I also am a member, I believe that none of them will oppose a favor able report." When Mr. Nunne presented the or dinance and moved It be referred to committee, he included In the motion that if the committee decided to" report favorably the measure be printed and presented for action next Thursday night. The motion was so made in or der t lose no time, as but a little over two months intervenes between now and election day, nnd the ordinance provides that tin; niiestlon to be sub mitted Jo popular vote must be adver tised ut least thirty days before elec tion. No specifications! nre attached to the measure. It contain no reference to poles, w ires or machinery, those requi sites belli!? Included in the words "tie. ccssary appliance and apparatus." In connection with Mr. Noone's or dinance there was a pertinent signifi cance in the debate preceding the de f"tt on third renllnr of nn ordinance fathered by Mr. Zcldler nnd providing for nn electric light on the smith side of Mulberry street ut tho Junction of Onli ford court. Captain Molr, of the Ninth; Mr. Keller, of the Seventeenth, nnd Mr. ! Innistliiin. of the Kighth wards, were wutin in their oioiosli Ion to supporting this or finy future ordinances provid ing for new electric lluhts except nt the imw iinliglilcd corner and then only when such lights were absolutely neces sary nnd generally demanded. Any future liplit nrdiminct would be closely examined and not favored unless they related lo outlying winds where the need of lirhts was not questioned. TI.ey argued that Scranton on account of Its grout spread of territory in pro portion to It population was paying more fur lights, comparatively, than a large majority of cities. ASPHALT KKPAIK PLANT. Another Important mensure Involving municipal ownership nnd which its adherents lnlm will also soon involve a sa lug of about llh.ann annually, was a resolution drafted by Select Council man Chittenden, of the Ninth ward. It provides lornn initiatory step toward the city's possessing Its own asphalt repair jdant and was passed compar atively unheralded and unnoticed nt last wi;i k's session of Select council. It came up for concurrence Inst night. The resolution directs the city engi neer to report on or before March 1 concerning the feasibility of construct ing a municipal asphult repair plant and its estimated cost. The measure was rend und passed without comment. Following its passage Captain Molr averred If the city acquire its own plunt it will have brought about one of the biggest municipal economies in Soranton's history. Captain Moir explained that the bond contracts which bind the Harber As phult company to keep pavements In repair for live years ore gradually ex piring. There are now ten miles of as phalt pnvementB and more will be con structed. The contract price for re pairs is five cents per yard. It Is be lieved the city can do Its own work for not more than 2 cents per yard nnd possibly ns cheap as I cent per yard. Hcfore the Chittenden resolution was acted upon another concurrent meas ure had been passed which may have a bearing on the success or failure of Mr. Chittenden's resolution. It had evidently been introduced In select council by Mr. Chittenden himself In order to provide the asphalt repair plunt supporters with figures. It di rects the city engineer to prepare a schedule map showing the locution, ma terial and mil '8 of the city's different pavements and directs the city clerk to advertise for bids to keep them in re pair. For several days draughtsmen in the city engineer's department In anticipation of the pnssnge of the reso lution have been at work on the map. That the common branch of councils Is disposed to pout at the Economy Light. Heat and Power company was evidenced in the passage of a resolu tion introduced by Mr. Flanagan, of the Kighth ward, providing that the specification for heating the new quar ters of Nay Aug Engine company ba changed so that un Individual heating plant may be installed in the building. Select Councilman Durr, chairman of select's lire department committee, was bach of the resolution which he brought to Inst night's meeting and had Intro duced by his colleague from the Eighth. MR. DURH'S STATEMENT. Mr. Durr was accorded the privilege of the Moor and from his remarks and those of Mr. Flanagan the grievance against the steam furnishing company was because of Its disposition to charge the city M00 to connect the engine houes, which Is on Franklin avenue, with the Spruce street main. The de balers 'ureued that the company was censurable for so trying to press the limit after havlns been granted a free fran-'hlse.'j Mr. Flanagan went so far as to aver that from $10,000 to $20,000 worth of city pavement was buajvarn- aged annually in the company's pipe laying. All the debate which occupied fifteen minutes was caused !.y Mr. Sweeney's reminder that the cit;- bad once blun dered by installing an Inadequate plant in the city hall. The resolution passed after It had been su:T?eted by Mr. Durr und Captain Molr that one of the old city hnll hollers might be util ized In the engine house. A few mem bers refrained from voting. The November salary of JJ0 of Per manent Fireman Knroats, recently dis missed from Franklin Engine company, on Mayor Itulley's recommendation was ordered paid in a concurrent res olution. That the city controller shall not countersign further wnrrants to Con tractor Max Phillips for building' the retaining wall on Ninth and Robinson streets until It ahull have Wen shown that he has paid th- laborers engaged on the work was the substance ot a resolution Introduced by Mr. Nealls. Several members required some detail ed explanation of the measure from Mr. Nealls before It was affirmatively voted upon. A concurrent resolution that prop erty owners be permitted to build a lateral sewer on the east side of Har rison avenue from Oibson street to the end of the Tenth sewer district was referred to the sewers and drains com mittee nt the suggestion of Mr. Wensel who had been Informed that some kind of sewer work was alieudy in progress In that locality. An adjournment was made to meet Thursday night because the date for the I ext regular stated meeting fulls on Christmas eve. LETTER FROM MR. KITTHNHOl'SK A letter from J. W. Rlttenhotise, who complains that because of improper sewer construction the ctlar of his property Is constantly Hooded, was re ferred at the recommendation of the auditing committee to the sewers and drains committee. Resolutions adopted In select council were concurred In as follows: That the city engineer prepare plans and es timate of cost lor a retaining wall bor dering the Swetland estate on Ninth street beginning at Swetland street; that the city engineer prepare plans and an estimate for a stone arch cul vert In the Mount Pleasant ravine from the Delaware, Lackawanna and West ern tracks to the east side of North Muln avenue; that the proposals for building a retaining wall on the east side of West Market street lie reject ed because of a change that has been found necessary in the plans.

Qw, mi PIETRO GIRLS ARE CAUGHT AT LAST Second Oldest Arrestsd by Lieutenant Davis io the Leader Store. THEY ARE CLEVER PICK-POCKETS Uy Ottering Artificial Flowers and Toy Balloon For Sole They Pur sued Their Trade More Easily. They Came Here from Newark, and Since Then Many Complaints Were .Hade of Women Losiug Their Poc ki t Hooks. Four weeks ago three Italian sisters, the oldest 17 years und married, and the youngest 8, made their appeurance on Lackawanna avenue selling toy bal loons und artillciul Mowers, and about the same time complaints began to reach Chief of Police Holding that wo men were losing their pocketbooks in the Leader, the Globe Warehouse, the Four Cent store and other prominent business places. The chief made an Investigation and became satisfied that the girls were the pickpockets and he detailed some mem ber of the police force to keep a close watch on them daily, but the girls ap peared to have posted themselves on the otflctrs und kept very shady when ever any ot them was around. They went urouiul separately, one into tin Leader with a basket of tlowcrs and the others Into other stores with the toy balloons. Lieutenant John Davis, dressed in his citizen clothes, kept them In sight the past two afternoons and he succeeded In arresting the second oldest yester day Just after she stole the pocket book of Mrs. William Delke, wife of Shoemaker Delke. of Adams uvenue. The purse contained $7. Mrs. Delke was in the Leader for a few minutes and she left to go to the Four Cent store, but when she got there her pocketbook was gone, und she returned Immediately to the Lead er. Lieutenant Davis saw the girl take the pocketbook from Mrs. Delke, but before he could lay hands on her she had slipped out and was across the street at the steps leading up to Alderman Millar's office. She was talking to her youngest sister, who had a basket of Mowers. DROPPED FIFTEEN DOLLARS. The lieutenant took her up the street until he met Patrolman Molr on the corner and turned her over to him. Mrs. Delke was back from the Four Cent store In the meantime und she went up to the police station with Pa trolman Moir and the youthful prison er. Captain Edwards was standing at the door of the station talking to Lieu tenant Peter Ziing. of the South Side, as the girl was being brought In nnd they saw her drop a roll of paper money on the Hour. The captain picked It up and there was $1.1 in it, two $3 bills, one $2 bill and three $1 bills. When she was searched $2.0:1 In silver eoin was found In her -pocket, nnd among it was a much worn :i-cetit piei'j which was Identified by Mrs. Delke as hers. Mrs. Delke's pocketbook wan af terward found in the bottom of thj (lower basket. Not long after the girl's arrest her two sisters came to the station. They both said that she was Innocent, and when Chief Holding asked where she got the money she had, the oldest one said she gave It to her to buy n pair of siloes and an unron. She snid she gave her JO. And at the same time the girl arrested was telling Mayor Iiailey In another room that her oldest sister gave her $1.". The three of them to'd several contradictory stories, hut with out any admissions from them there I plenty of evidence to establish their guilt beyond question. SEARCHED THE HOUSE.- Chief Ridding, Lieutenant Davis nnd Patrolman Moir went to where the girl live nt "d:l Pleasant street, In Mc Cann's patch, and searched the house. Eight pocketbooks were found in dif ferent places, two of them being mad" from alligator ijkins. One of them was shicld-shapi d and was made so tht it could hang on a honk from the belt. In the seat cli of the house there was no-dry goods or othi r itrtides fiiund that would show they had been guilty of shoplifting also. In one of tlie pocketbooks was found seven gold rings nnd a valuable tie pin. These, as well ns the pocketbooks are in possession of Chief Holding now. Pletro Is the name of their father. He shook like one with the ague when the ollleers came in, and so did his wife. Th; re was no reason why the parent should be arrested, ns thcro was no evidence against them, unless it can be proved later that they sent the girls out to steal.. For the present Chief Holding decided not to arrtst them, and there is hardly any danger Hint they will go nwny while the girls are in custody; so that It will be an easy matter to get them if th-y are wanted. The family came here four weeks ago from Newark, N. J. The oldest girl, nlthough only 17 nnd very childlike In appearance. Is niarrl.-d since seven months ago to an Italian named Car minucla Filone, and they keen a fruit stand at U2I 'est Lackawanna ave nue. The next oldest is 12 year. Sin Is the one that was arrested. Her name Is Lizzie Pletro. The youngest Is only S yours old.- Her name is Mniy Pletro. The three pre exceptionally cute and they would lilt with the agil ity of cats from one part of the stores to the other. They will be given a hearing this morning by Mayor Ualley. GREAT TRANSACTION IN CLOTHING. The Mnnhntlnn Clothing Company Purchases the Entire and Enur moils Slock of Morris Duvidow. Mr. Davldow Will Go-Into the Weill Estate HiiNines. A sensation was caused In business circles on Lackawanna avenue yester day morning by the announcement of one of the greatest clothing transac tions In the history of the city. Tlu Manhattan Clothing company hud pur chased the enormous clothing stock of Morris J. Davldow, 222 Lackawanna avenue, nt about fifty per cent, of its value. Negotiations had been pending for several days but the big deal was closed only yesterday morning. The store was at once closed for the pur pose of arranging the goods and mark ing down prices. It will remain closed until Saturduy morning at 10 o'clock when it will lie reopened and a special sale will com mem e. The goods w ill lie sold at prices which will astonish even those who are accustomed to bargain sales. Mr. Davldow will at once retire from the clothing business and will enter at once u:on the real estate business, a line which Is better suited to his tastes. He proposes to stay right here in Scranton and his ability and Indus try will certainly place him In the front row of the dealers In landed property in Lackawanna county.

The bride is one. of the North End's most popular young ladles. The .room Is a trusted employe of the Pennsyl vania Coul company at Dunmore. SACRED CHAMBER CONCERT. Well Rendered High Class Program nt Y. M. ('. A. Hull. . The second of this season's chamber concerts was well attended last even ing at Association hall and the pro gramme presented afforded pleasure and Instruction In equal parts. It opened with Mendelssohn's trio (op. Iti) in C minor and closed with Gude's string quartette (op.- 63) in D major, giving medial place to Saitit Saeiis' sonata for 'cello and piuno (op. .!'.') in C minor. It is open to question whether, despite Mr. T. H. Hlppard's ifi'ectlve Interpret. iMoii and splendid phrasing of the cello port and Mr. Con art's established command of the piano, the Salnt-Siiens number was fully up pi eclated in any but the andante move ment: which is another way of saying that Salnt-Suens Is nn acquired taste. The Mendelssohn trio, however, with. Its luxuriance of melody, pleased b-SJ Philistines and the elect; while .-"Tor the quartette, it seems Impoi. v-ado to imagine n more exquisite blending of harmonies than characterized Its. first three movements. The soloist of the evening was Mr. Richard D. Williams, of Kingston. He sang an ar!n by Gounod and a senti mental hullnd, In a high tenor voice of pleasing quality and unusual flexi bility. The next chamber concert has been postponed from January II to January 21. IMITATED EDITIONS nre no longer necesary.
