The joint council committee on railroads and streets, alleys and grades, met ! last night, and finally rid Itself of the UM>U?I?? atrnnt rillu-nv frnnphltM. hv TOe Wheeling ? Kim urovo eriowcu up In better form last plght, and led all through the race. Resides being rect ommended to council for consideration - first, It won back many of the vital ; parts lost at a previous meeting of the committee. It won back the desired railroad guage, of four feet eight and one-half inches, the five feet two Inch forces falling to rally their usunl full strength, as a few of the councllmeii went over to the enemy. The Klin Grove got Fifteenth street, from Chapline to McColloch. a consideration that i -was denied at th? last meeting, and In general, looms up as the victor In the i race to come. It was after S o'clock when Chairman I Connelly rapped his gavel, and the accustomed large attendance of spectators was present. Chairman Connelly said that he would have to decide the meeting in executive session, unless the . committee decided otherwise. Mr. Hahne. seconded by Mr. Horkhe I me r. moved that th? seasion he open to the public. Captain Otto. Messrs. McLure and Sexbltt. thought executive sessions the proper thing,since the committee had gone go far. and thought the time not ripe ye: for open sessions. Th.? motion was lost, only the mover and dUM*s\n*1*r iiiniurtIns? If. ThU n'ai Cold water to the railway magnates. attorneys and other interested parties, and they disappeared IIke magic. After the minutes of the previous meetings hud been read. City Solicitor Nesbltt gave his opinion regarding the legality of th? city to asses the railways a cvrtain sum per mile of railroads laid within city limits, lie said th*? city had the power to assess the road* In the franchises, because it was not license or taxation, but a contrail. The city could make such contract and the bonus givci> by the road may be ny amount. The city's stipulation of so much per mile Is a contract, in which the other party agrees In accepting franchise. Captain Otto then moved that the new roads be taxed 1500 per annum for each mile within the city limits. The motion fell flat, no second bobbing up. l*rotr?l From Alley 4*. j General Alfred Caldwell's petition In t behalf of the taxpayers in the square bounded on the north by Tenth street, j: . east by Chapllne, south by Eleventh, and west by Market, was read. The petitioners protested against alley C being used by the Suburban electric or other railroad", as the alley was used by them for stable entrances, ami In their opinion such road would Interim * fer* wltii their using the alley with . their horpn* and wairons. The petition was received and filnl The next thing ?>n the* programme was ordering a bll! of $3 50 paid, after which the committer ?peni some time Inspecting the iarcy eonsolldnted map of the : three route.-?.

He of- i /ered u resolution. giving the Wheeling ) a. *! !?? i-irnvn tSo nf Flftr>pnth street [ from Chapllne to McColloch. !. Mr. Nesblrt opposed the resolution, i ' and Mr. HlgglnM. who formerly opposed I I a similar resolution, favored Mr. I Knoke's, because the other two roads had been,given Fifteenth street. I [ Mr Horkhelm^r thought because Flf- i teenth was given up to the Suburban ?nd Wheeling roads, was no reason why I It should be given t?? the Kim Grove, any more than Sixteenth should be glv- i Z. en to the Wheeling and Suburban. 1 $ Captain Otto wanted it distinctly understood that he had no "pet schema." f; He had In hi* mind the giving of Fif- I W- teenth street to two mads. TJiere were t only two to vote aoalnst the Wheeling & Elm Grove getting Fifteenth street:1 t; Horkhelmer and Nenbltt. On motion of Mr. EbeHng. It was de- j I elded to admit representative* of the | r various companies to nubmlt any changes or amendments to the connolIda ted map. Before they were admitted though. Mr. Hahne offered an fe amendment io the Elm Grove ordlL nance, which provided that the gunge of said road be four foot, eight and one-half Inches, or name guago as is ?nw tiflod bi* said road. [ 'Mr. Nesbltt opposed thin gunge, ns it would prevent Joint use of the road on Fifteenth street, and he wanted the [ (plaice of Ave foot, two inches, the Mime 8i In use on both sides of the river. Deciding the (Jang*. Mr. Horkheimer stated that he was still of the eame opinion as when he opposed the amendment nt a previous meeting. He thought the question had been thoroughly debated before, nnd he could not understand any change of : opinion el nee. Mr. Haslett said no reflection should be cast on 'he Intelligence of the committee, ns since the last meeting many members had studied the question, and found that the wider gunge Is the modern one, and In use In all big [ cities. In addition, he thought It a hardship for the Kim Grove to change Its nine miles of road to suit guage of one mile of road of another company. He thought It a good idea to lay a third rail on Fifteenth street, v > ns to suit other companies. In changing the guage. business men living out the nike would be put to grc.it inconve f: nlence. l>r.

He was shown the petition against his company using alley C. Mr. Sorninervllle said his company wlslud to reach the market house, and would be governed by the consent of the committee to the three alternatives besides tho Alley C route. The company would be yatlsfled to use Market from Tenth to Eleventh, or. In conjunction with the Wheeling Hallway Company, use Its tracks, or the west side of the market house. After Mr. Sommervllle withdrew, representatives of the other companies failed to appear. Mr. Haslett, speaking for his constituent*) of the Second ward, moved that Alley C be stricken out of the Suburban's ordinance. Speaking for the same constituents, Mr. Horkheliner. of the uoblo Second, wanted the committee to be courtious to the Suburban, and thought some street I should Ik? suggested In lieu of the strlk( Ing out of Alley C. He mentioned the fact that residents of other streets had I appeared In person, objecting to lines along their routes. J Mr. Nesbltt offered In amendment to Mr. Hazlett's motion, the use of the west wide of Market at reel for the 1 Suburban's line. Mr Hlgglna offered as substitute, what th? Suburban original* i 1 y asked for. the use of Market from [Tenth to Eleventh; either with a single track, or Join use of the Wheeling's track*. This amendment, with the original motion was adopted. Mr. Knoke then moved that the Wheeling St Kim Grove ordlnan<>. as amended, bo recommended favorably to council.with Instructions to refer to the committee on ordinances, and tho city solicitor. Jointly. Mr. Ebellng offered an amendment that the 8u>?>action be taken on the Wheeling Railway ordinance, and that th- petition of the latter company be Included In the Kim Grove ordinance.

Mr. Hazlett begged leave to change, as he had only been in fun. and he was given permission to vote against the Suburban. Captain Otto did likewise, then Chairman Connelly followed suit, making a total of six against the Suburban: Knoke. Schmidt, Hahne, Hazlett, Otto and Connelly.

She war young, bright and more than ordinarily pretty, and when the operator glanced up from tli?t ordor he was sending and raw her standing at thu vflhdcw Where fh<? big triln realster lay, jit wondered what,ahe wo? doing In the room that was generally given up to tho use of the yard-clerks and yardmusters. A few tnlnuteg later, when he had finished his work, he looked up again, and she was still ut the window, apparently engaged In the big book In which tho Incoming and outgoing conductors record the arrival and departure of their trutns. lie thought she might be wishing to send a message, and with this Idea he started to go to the window to attend to her, when she looked up. A quick mystic sign passed between them, and thu operator smiled and stretched out the "nlad hand" of welcome. "Where are you from?" he asked. "Colorado," she replied; "but I belong In Denver 305.

"As 1 told you. 1 lost my Job In .January last, but while 1 worked 1 had saved my money and I had plenty to keep tn<? for quite a while. There was no chance for work there, unless business picked up again and there was no prospect of that before fall. so I made up my mind to atari out and find one somewhere else, If I could.

The lady slipped out through the side door and Just as the conductor finished his work and picked up hi* lantern, he heard a: his elbow the old familiar query: "Do you show any favors to railroad people in the way of transportation?" Now this conductor was one of the "marble-hearted" kind and he turned, prepared to crush the daring "tourist" with a sharp negative, but when he saw th?- pretty face and looked Into the smiling eyes of this "fair hobo." lie hesitated.

Better get in the second coach, and hurry up about ^t. too." The operator was standing In the door with hl? coat on and he escorted his foil railroader down to her car and In a few minutes this "newent woman" was on h< r way east while tin* operator stood on th?- platform watching the' rapidly receding red lights on the rear of the train and wondering ivhnt would I be the next one of man's sacred rights, to be Involved by the Rentier sex. now I that she had taken to "hoboing."

Ilotilnanii Say Itir I rmlr it \ot l'rn?pt>r?n? at I'rraruN The National Tin Plate Manufacturers' Association has just completed a meeting at Cleveland. Every effort was made to prevent the result of the meeting being made public, and all -the otllcers positively refused even to allow the cards of newspaper reporters being sent to them. The principal subject discussed was the wage question, which has been precipitated by the announcement of the Amalgamated Association of Iron and Steel Workers th:?r the association would. In the scale which is revived each year about July 1. demand a Kuh?tantial increase in the wages now paid. It I* customary at the May meeting of the tin plate manufacturers to appoint a conference committee with full j*>wer to adjust the scale of wages, which committee confers with a like committee from the Amalgamated A*!*?eiation. It was this matter In addition to routine bual nes:? which the association conwacrea, and It was the sentiment ex prefect Almost unanimously that the condition of trade did not warrant any Increase Ir. the wages. Mr. <\ A.

I will state to you the principal Hti11j >'t thus far discussed has related to the (juration of wage*. It Is customary to revise the scale each year, and we understand that a demand for higher wage* is to lh> made. We cann??t grant this because business Is not brisk a 11 does not warrant It. There 1* very little moving In our line and some are cutting prices. Therefore, we shall !" loath t.? grant any Increase. You see, In our business we depend on so many other branches. FV?r Instance, the canning Industry Is closely related to us. There are very few salmon bo ins: canned in the far northwest, and als . in other brant hes there la little being done. Then. In the building trade, there i.i little moving, so. you see. there is little demand for our good*." "Does the new tariff suit you?" was aaked. "Well. no.
