Councilman Noooe Says Yes, and In
troduces an Ordinance.
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
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.
"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.
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. 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.
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.

Second Oldest Arrestsd by Lieutenant
Davis io the Leader Store.
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.
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
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.
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
The family came here four weeks ago
from Newark, N. J. The oldest girl,

appearance. Is niarrl.-d since seven

Purchases the Entire and Enur

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
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.

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

will wait till the goods are gone, und then
wonder why they didn't come -soonc.
