As to authority for the loan tho viow

Mr. Wheat moved to amend that $1 t

for his motion; Mr. Hupi&econdod.
Mr. O'Malloy moved to iix tho rato at

out of order, as two had already
jeen made.
On Mr. Wheat's motion tho ayes and
iocs woro domanded. Kemarks wero
irst in order, and Mr. Wheat mado a

Thoro was a hot exchango between
Hessrs. Whoat and Milligau regarding
ho wages, and tho former said ho was
rying to do tho greatest good to tho
rreatest number. Mr. Zwicker was
ilao opposed to tho dollar rate. It was
aid tho employment of mon undor tho
notion does not affect tho rato at preuint
paid tho regular employes.
Mr. Dinger made a very "pointed

ivelihood in iho mills at $1 and $1 25
vouid quit and endeavor to got work on

ind thus in a measure dcteat tho pur)oso
of tho movement.
Mr. Wheat said sixty to ninety days'
irnnlovmen; would be iriven to all the
lesiituto at $1 per day. Ho said the
ate proposed is the aamo paid at Clovoand
and Pittsburgh for tho same chartablo
work. Pittsburgh evon pays only
on cents an hour, or eighty cents for
ho timo tiiat it is proposed to pay $L
lore. Mr. Wheat hopod tho rato would
lot bo takon for a political movo oral-'
oring tho regular rate of wages.
Mr. O'Mallev objected to tho$l rate,
nd vyi* uioro in favor of giving the unmployed
tho dollar proposed.
Mr. Hamilton favored the Wheat
imendmcnt, aud fully and satisfactorily
uvorod his position. lie said tho unmployed
would be glad to got a job at

Mr. Wheat gave an illustration of how
rilling tho unemployed aro to take
ven less than a dollar a dav. Ho was
gain interrupted by Mr. O'Malley and
gain illustrated his position.
Mr. Milligan mado a few sacastic renarks,
saving he was glad to see counilmon
at'last take an interest in tho
'poor laboring man." He spoke of the
ray contracts have heretofore been lot
tore, mostly to foreign contractors, and

Mr. Maxwoll movod that tho whole

Mr. Wheat again spoke on tho subcct

. little by-play with Milligan. lie
aoved that tho' restraining ordinance

his motion to the shape of an
rdinance in written form. This wa9
tterwards withdrawn.
At this point Mr. Maxwell was exused
on account of leaving for the oast
,t midnight.
Mr. Wheat said the restraining orditance
in this case has no effect, as tho
esolution of Mr. llupp does not go into
fleet until January 2. Ho therefore
ailed for the question on his original
mondtnont. First Mr. Million's

Acting in behalf of tho local flint glass
industry, Mr. Charles Burdett llartyosterday
received a letter from President
Bagaley, of the United States Glass
Company, saying that it would not bo
worth whilo for him to como to Pittsburgh
with anyjurther proposition relative
totiie purchase of tho two United
States Glass Company factories in this
city. Thin means that the United States
Company has given tho local peopiotneir
final proposition. Tho option securod
expires on tho 24th of this month, next
'lhe local committoo haviu&r in chargo
tho eflort to rovivo tho industry hero
mot yesterday and hoard tho above roportand
saw no further chance /or subscriptions.
Another scheme has been
suggested, the outline of which is thut
tho city council would act wisely in submitting
to the people a proposition that
the city make a loan of ?75,000 to make
tho purchase of tho two lactones possible,
so that nearly ono thousand men
would be employed at once. It is possible
that a petition asking that this
coarse bo pursued will bo presented to
council at its next meeting, which takes
place next Tuesday.
If tho scheme outlined comes to
naught the project to purchase the two
factories will have to bo abandoned, as
after a month's hard work by tho committee,
including a thorough "canvass of
the city, it has been found impossiblo
to raiso funds necessary to make tho
payments on tho factories and loave
sufficient money to start and carry on
the work of making glassware.

The Intelligencer lias already mentioned
the death in the Ojai Valley,
CaL, of Mr. & W. Gaily. Late copies of
the NordhofF Ojai and other papers
published near hia lato homo contain
extended and appreciative skotchea of
him. The Ojai says:
"It is not too much to say that no ono
would have left a greater vacancy in tho
community than has beon inado by the
death of Mr. Gaily. Most people who
havo come in contact with him feel
deeply that they owe him some generous
kindness. He was a man not morely
always ready but always beforehand
to help a friend; ho did not stop at offers
of assistance but quickly save it.
And ho gavo it freely. Many who could
never make return havo felt his gonerosity.
