EXPERT EXPECTED TO ARRIVE TOMORROW Breclal to The Herald: PASADENA, Sept. 23.— Prof. C. L. Cory of Berkeley Is due to arrive In Pasadena Wednesday morning and will look over the ground and begin his work at once in reviewing the reports of Superintendent Glass and Expert Scattergood. It Is believed that two or three days will suffice for the work, and a special session of the council may be called to hear his report. As he stands high in the esteem of both sides his findings will no doubt be final and action taken by the council. Mayor Earley said today that as the dif ference- in the estimated cost of produc tion was only two-tenths of a cent per kilowatt was not worth consider ing, and that, the principal difference in the reports regarding the better method of installation and the size of the wire to be used was what Prof. Cory would de cide upon. He said that the reasoning advanced by either Mr. Glass or Mr. Scattergood seemed so plausible and convincing as they explained them that it was impos sible for the council or himself to make any decision, and that the help of a dis interested third party of unquestionable ability and fairness was necessary to an understanding.

PASADENA, Sept. 23.— Tomorrow prom ises to be a full and busy day for the city council as, besides routine matters, the ordinance relative to the telephone pole tax comes .up for second reading, the proposed garbage incinerator will probably receive some consideration and the matter of a double track franchise for the Pacific Electric is due. as tomor row is the last day for receiving bids.
