lilcyclo Ordlnuncu Now Goes to
Select council last night refused to
confirm Mayor Bailey's appointment of
Messrs. McCnnn, Scranton and Bedford
ns park commissioners.
Mr. Finn, for the park committee,
submitted a report signed by himself,
Mr. Robinson nnd Mr. Chittenden, rec
ommending the confirmation of the ap
pointees. Mr. Burns protested against
the ndoptlon of the recommendation,
saying he was a member of the com
mittee, yet had not been notified of any
meeting. Ho held that It was not only
unfair, but Illegal, for a committee to
pass upon a matter without twenty
four hours' notice from tho chairman
to all the members, and In view of tho
fact that the meeting from which the
report emanated was a dark corner
session of n, minute's duration, ho
moved to postpone consideration of the
appointments until tho next regular
meeting. Messrs. Clarke and Wagner
were on their feet simultaneously with
Mr. Finn arose and said: "Mr. chair
man, I don't, see why they should post
pone " Something or another occurred
to him which caused him to pause and
quit and the roll call on postponement
was proceeded with.

Absent Mr. Durr.
The motion was declared carried and
the nominations will go over until the
third Thursday of September.
THAT BBLLEVUE RIOT.
A great deal of discussion was en
gendered by Mr. Clarke's resolution
directing the police committee to take
testimony regarding the recent riot In
Bellevue. He explained that the people
of his ward believed a stigma had been
unjustly cast upon a number of their
best young men and on tho whole local
ity, also that the police officers hud
overstepped their authority, nnd as
they could not get a fair hearing be
fore Mayor Bailey, they desired coun
cils to take the matter In hand and
give them an opportunity to set them
selves aright before the public.
Messrs. Finn, Lansing and Chitten
den nrgued agnlnst the resolution on
the grounds that council has no author
ity to conduct such a hearing, not hav
ing the power to summon witnesses or
admlnster oaths. Mr. Manley sought
to overcome this difficulty by inserting
an amendment directing the mayor to
act with the committee, but this was
lost on a tie vote. Mr. Thomas sought
to indefinitely postpone action, but this
also was defeated, the vote being nine i
ayes to eleven nays.
Then Mr. Clarke moved to adopt the
resolution. In answer to questions by
Mr. Wagner and other members, Mr.
Clarke stated that he could not say
for certain what charges were mode
against the officers, hut he knew that
If the officers had passed on about their
business and not followed the young
men Into the hotel the riot would never
have occurred. "The officers over on
that beat," continued Mr. Clarke,"have
exceeded their authority before, If they
didn't this time and, further than that,
they more than any one else are re
sponsible for the hard reputation that
tho locality has been given, from their
having made dead-line gang stories out
of every little affair that occurs over
there. There are more sober, Indus
trlfius young men In my ward than any
ward In the city."
Tho vote on the passage of the reso
lution was then taken and It resulted

M'GINLEY WANTS HELP.
A communication was received from
City Solicitor McGlnley suggesting that
his predecessor, James H. Torrey, be
engaged to assist In the preparation
and argument of the appeal to the
Supreme court of the special assess
ment case of Jermyn and others
against the city, Mr. Torrey, as he ex
plained, being familiar with the case,
he having argued It before tho local
Mr. Chittenden wanted to Instruct the
city solicitor to drop the case entirely,
but upon a reminder from Mr. Roche
that tho city solicitor had been only
Instructed to carry tho case up, and
a further reminder from Mr. Fellows
that the life of tho board of revision
and appeals depended on the final out
come, Mr. Chittenden sat down, but
he afterwards registered a solitary vote
against a resolution embodying Mr.
Street Commissioner Dunning sent In
a communication asking for a further
appropriation of $500 or $1,000 to finish
the repairing of West Market street
and another notifying councils that,
owing the appropriation for repairs of
sewers being exhausted, ho cuuld wot
carry out the work ol repairing the
Garfield avenue sewer as directed.
Both letters were referred to commit
tee. Michael Reap'3 offer to compromise
for JC00 his suit for damages to his
West Mnrket street property, was re
ported by City Solicitor McGlnley to
lncludo damages sustained up to tho
time of the verdict. Thereupon coun
cil referred the matter to committee to
effect a compromise on tho verdict and
also subsequent damages. On recom
mendation of the Judiciary committee
claim for damages of John and Henry
Welsenfluh, of Luzerne street, was set
tled for $55.
Mr. Roche Introduced a resolution di
recting the city engineer to follow tho
present curb line when resetting curbs
on Phelps street, between Capouso and
Washington avenues. This was adopt
ed, as was also a resolution directing
the city engineer to ascertain why the
contractor on the West Market street
retaining wall was not fulfilling his con
tract. A resolution, introduced by Mr.
Chittenden, asking for an opinion from
the city solicitor on the city's liability
for accidents that happen by reason of
oxcavatlons or obstructions within the
fenco line, when the sidewalk Is kept
passable; also as to how the city can
compel property holders to provide
proper protection against accidents re
sulting from such cxcavatlonB and ob
structions. It was adopted.
The streets and bridges committee re
ported adversely th'e ordinance accept
ing "Prospect Place" as a part of the
Second ward, tho objection being that
the projectors of the addition to the
city had not furnished a map of tho
plot to prove that tho streets concurred
with the city thoroughfares.
W. J. Burke was awarded the con
tract for laying Hag stono sidewalks
on certain streets in the Seventh ward.
Flanaghan & O'Hara's bid of 85 cents
a lineal foot for constructing a pipe
drain on Cherry street was accepted.
Approval was given tho Joint auditing

It will now go to common council.

crowned with success, many, French

to encourage exports. Where large gov

.New Screening Appnrntus Examined
The members of tho board of health
of the busiest (per capltn) city In the
world yesterday made its annual In
spection of the best wnter supply
sources In that samo world. The city,
of course. Is Scranton and the concern
which controls the water supply In
question Is tho Scranton Gns and
Water company, which wns In business
even before the city wns organized, and
It may be added performed the chris
tening when the lease of municipal life
was granted In 1806.
The Inspection of tho company's sev
eral dams and distributing reservoirs
yesterday showed a "high degree of per
fection and the men who look after tho
health of the city were enthusiastic In
their praise of the great water supply.
Health Officer W. E. Allen, M. D
said, "The finest on earth;" President
of the board, W. A. Paine, M. D.,
"could not be more perfect," and all
other members of the party were
equally expressive in their remarks.
The party, which left the city hall
In the three carriages at 9 o'clock, was
composed of: Dr. W. A. Paine, presi
dent, nnd R. J. Murray, secretary of
the board; and George S. Horn, Dr. J.
K. Bentley, M. J. Kelly, members of the
board, nnd Mayor J. G. Bailey, Health
Onicor W. E. Allen, Sanitary Officer
W. H. Burke, Food Inspector Thomas
Cullen, and Superintendent Robert
Reeves, of the Scranton Gas and Water
AT NO. 7 DAM.
After leaving the city the first stop
was made at No. 7 dam, which onco
upon a time was considered the pride
of the stnte and with its 80,000,000 gal
lons capacity was looked upon as a
monster reservoir. Now It Is used In
the secondary capacity of a distribut
ing point and the big dams further on
completely engulf It In .their greater
proportions. At this dam the new sys
tem of "screening" Just put in use wns
explained by Superintendent Reeves.
There are three double sets of selves,
through which the water runs In a 48
lnch pipe. The sets are so arranged
that when one selve Is being cleansed
of the Impurities collected from the
wnter the other selve Is In use. A pat
ent valve changes the course of the
The same system Is In use In New
York ond Boston. At this place also
Is the Venturl metre, which registers
the flow every twenty-four hours. The
average dally rupply to the city is 15,
000,000 gallons. Superintendent Reeves
said that his company will, In a short
time, introduce an Improved metre,
which will register the quantity of
water passing through the pipes every
ten minutes, and uy an electrical ap
pliance the figures will be communicat
ed to the Scranton office. After the
Inspection of the No. 7 dam, which Is
the main distributing point in the
Roaring Brook system, the party drove
to the Ehnhurst reservoir; capacity, 1.
300,000,000 gallons. This Is in excellent
condition. The place of the old tan
nery, which covered over five acres of
land, Is now a grove of maple trees.
All the land between the Erie and Wyo
ming and the Delaware, Lackawanna
and Western railroads from No. 7 to
tho Elmhurst reservoir has been pur
chased by the company, also all the
land to the Oak Run dam, capacity,
350,000.000 gallons. The company also
ownts thousands of acres of woodland
on the headwaters of the Roaring
STAFFORD MEADOW SYSTEM.
After a bounteous dinner at the Park
hotel, Elmhurst, the party rode over
the company's fine red-shale road, six
miles long, to the Stafford Meadow sys
tem. Tho Williams bridge dam, capac
ity, 3,500,000,000 gallons, was Inspected.
This dam Is used for high pressure
purposesto supply the "hill and Hyde
Park. The Burnt bridge reservoir, now
In course of construction, was one of
the most Interesting points In the trip.
Wor. has been going on for two yenrs,
and the dam will not be completed un
til Novembsr, 1898. It will have a ca.
paclty of 3,500,000,000 gallons and will
be one of the largest In tho state.
The Stafford Meadow distributing
dam was next Inspected. This supplies
the South Side part of the city.
The return to the city was then be
gun, tho party reaching here at C p. m.,
after a forty-eight-mile ride. Superin
tendent Reeves was personally compli
mented' for the perfact enjoyment and
success of th'e Inspection trip.

perintendent of tho Poor Shulcnberg, on
complaint of his wife, who charged him
with being n. disorderly person. Foster's
lawful wife, a girl said to ho 1G years old,
was traded by him to William Hawkins
nbout the mlddlo of last month, Hawkins
agreeing that Foster should nave Mrs.
Hawkins In exchange. Hawkins, how
ever, later became dissatisfied with his
bargain, and Foster, to compromise mat
ters, gave him a shotgun of doubtful
value. Still unsatisfied, Hawkins aban
doned his newly-acquired consort, nnd stio
was at length forced to go to her rela.
tlves nt Beaver Dams, whero fho later
applied to Superintendent Shulenberg for
aid, nftor telling him her story.
Foster wns found In Catherine, whero
ho was living apparently In bliss with the
legal wife of Hawkins. The latter was
at Foster's place when tho superintend
ent first called, but on learning that n
