Relieves Contention In Sev
The lower house or the council last night
passed the salary ordinance as it came from
the upper house and thereby relieved for
the time being the congested condition of
eeveral city departments as brought about
1j the enormous Increase in business on
account of the extension of the city limits.
The ordinance increases the expenses of
the city $S.CS per jear, as follows, besides
providing for two inspectors in the building
department at $3.60 per day when emplojed:

to $70. $10.
Sanitary policeman, raised from $T20 to
It is estimated that the building in
spectors will work 200 dajs, which would
make $1,440 per j car or $.46 for all.
The Democrats opposed the increase and
a heated tilt occurred between Messrs.
Lynch and Otto. The latter scored L.jnch
for opposing the necessary increase in the
expenses of the city. Ljnch made the
withering retort that Otto was no gentle
man. He came near calling Mr. Otto a
Speaker Burrows wanted to strike out one
clerk from the treasurer's office and to re
duce the salary to Fj0. Mr. Beroth wanted
t-eparate ordinances. Jlr. l.jnch com
plained that he couldn't get $7,(O0 extra for
lighting the new wards and Pendergast
complained that he couldn't get $3,000 for
"Yet the council can find $5,000 or $10,000
lor new officers," they chorused.
Treasurer Harrison was Invited to ex
plain the situation In his office, but the
Democrats objected. On a strict party
ote the ordinance was pasted.
The ordinance will reduce the expenses
of the treasurer and auditor, each of whom
has carried for reveral months under the
charter authority one more man than the
present ordinance allows. Of the $3.4o3 in
crease, $7S0 Is for raises, and J8.CK8 for new
The lower house also paed an ordinance
Riving Nelson Crews, police clerk, an as
sistant at $50 a month, making a grand
total Increase or SIO.ISS. The upper house
referred this ordinance to the linance com
mittee. In the upper house an ordinance appro
priating $10,000 for a new wing at the city
hospital -was referred to the finance com
mittee. Tho ordinance changing the names of

er districts 143 and 177 and to construct a
M-wcr in district No. 11.

$1,175 to pay bills of the garbage depart
ment. An ordinance appropriating J2.D00 to buy

TAXES VEHICLES AND BICYCLES
City Counselor Han Prepared an Or
dinance for the ext Meeting
of the Council.
City Counselor Mlddlebrook. after an ex
haustive investigation or the law, has pre
pared a vehicle and blcjcie tax ordinance
v.hlch he Is confident will stand the severest
attack of the police cjurt.
The ordinance levies a tax of $1 on bicy
cles, $1 on one-horse vehicles and $2 on
vehicles drawn by two or more horses. Tho
ordinance affects only private vehicles and
those not taxed under the vailous license
ordinances of the city.
The ordinance defines a vehicle as an arti
ficial contrivance used or capable of being
used a a means of tran-portatlon on land.
The city counselor claims that this covers a
bicycle, which, it is held, must be included
as tho charter dos not mention bicjcles
In tho list of things which may be taxed.
The Pennsj lv anla courts have decided
that a blcjcle is not a vehicle, and as the
charter does not mention bicjcles as tax
able, the cyclists have contended that the
-wheels could not be taxed. But tho law
irives the city the right to make definitions
with the limitation that It cannot go bejond
the generally accepted meaning In the com
munity. All these questions have been
weighed by the city counselor and decided
to his satisfaction.
The ordinance provides that the proceeds
of tho tax shall go to the street cleaning
fund. It will bo presented at the next
meeting of the council.
POLES AT SIDE OF STREET.
Upper Home, by a Vote of lO to 1, De

The Iron poles for the Broadway electric

Somewhere in Cuba or Porto Rico, big
Jim Hollis, of the Indian nation is carrj
ing a gun. enlisted under the nars -i.d
stripes. He was in the very thick of the
battle before Santiago and won the atten
tion of his commanding officers by the he
ro'c manner in which he faced the enemy
without fear or trembling.
While he was thu- engaged in this laud
able task a Ij nt-ej ed deputv United States
marshal was matting anxious and almost
frantic Inquiries to ax;ertain his where
abouts. He scoured the Indian nation ai d
the state of Texas, but with no success.
He was extremelv anxious to locate the
musing Hollis. He had been looking lor
him for three jears. but his search was
not crowned with Miccess and he deter
mined to make one last desperate effort,
as he had been to'd by his superior that
his reputation and very probably his posi
tion would depend on the result
The deputy, bj dint of persistencv and
unceasing work, finally met a man in the
Chickasaw nation, in the Indian Territory,
who knew Hollis. From this man he
learned that Hollis had heard of a Urge
order given by the United States govern
ment for mules to be shipped to Jefferson
barracks, in order that they might be
trained to transport the siege guns on the
field of battle, and that he had secured a
position at that place as a mule p ich-r.
Overjojed the latter immediately has
tened back and reportfd his dicoerv to
his superior, the United States marshal at
Paris. Tex. The latter communicated with
United States Marshal Bohle. of St. Louis,
and requested that official to effect the ar
rest of Hollis. as a warrant of three ears'
standing or horse stealirg was still end
Ins acainst him In tha state of Texas.
Marshal Bohle took the case before United
States Commissiorer Graj. and after the
requisite papers were secured, dispatched
one of his deputies to the barracks to ar
rest Hollis. This was last Fridav. When
the deputy reached that place ho found
that Hollis had left for Tampa on June 1.
The authorities at Tampa were communi
cated with and it was found that Hollis
had left that place in time to reach San
tiago by the time the lirst lighting had
Marshal Bohle yesterday notified the
Paris authorities of the result of his in
vestigation and the anxious deputy at that
place will have to wait until the close of
the war to secure his man, unless the mili
tary authorities at that place can be in

The warrant, charging horse stealing,
was Issued agalrst Hollis about thr.e
jears ago. The alleged offense was com
mitted in the Chickasaw nation Hnr-e
stealing In the Indian nation Is a fedral
offense, punishable by a fine of $l.0f) and
fifteen j ears' imprisonment. According to
the Information received In this cltj. quite
a number of the people in that vicinity
ara firmly convinced that Hollis is inno
cent, but he dreaded the stern manner in
which Justice Is meted out in the Indian
nation and skipped the country, leaving a
wife and family dependent almost entirely
upon their own resources for subsistence.
FEW PLEASURES FOR THEM.

the City for Aid for Him

Edward Burris, of 528 Main street, was
an applicant for relief at the office of Hu

The Charge of Brutality Made Against
Patrolman Young Is Xot
The case against Officer Young, charged
with being "too rough" with a prisoner,
came up before the police commissioners
yesterday, and Young was exonerated by
the board. Theodore Romstedt was the com

body was drunk. Otlicer Young came along
and told them to stop. They stopped right
away and all went to bed except the pro

DISMISSED BYTHE STATE.
The Cases Against Ilcgcd Election
Repeaters Quickly Disposed Of
by the Prosecutor.
"Dismissed bj- the state" was the in
dorsement written jesterdaj- across the
back of the envelopes containing the war
rants on which Thomas Kean and Frank
Alcutt were anested for fraudulent voting
at the Democratic primaries on July 21.
Thej' were arraigned on the daj- follow
ing the primaries before Justice Krueger,
charged with "repeating," and on pleas
of not guiltj their cases were continued to

suite was not readj and thej' were con
tinues The next time thej- were called the
state was still waiting to collect more evi
dence and another continuance was asked.
Yesterday the cases came up again and
were promptly dismissed bv Assistant
Prosecutor Wtndorff, who said the state
had no evidence.
"But wh it was the trouble? Had you no
witnesses subpoenaed or did jour witnesses
fail to show up?"
"I don't know," replied the assistant
prosecuting attornej-. as if too much should
rot bo expected of him. "I don't know mj
thlrg about the matter. All I know is that
I rouldn't find anv ividence to hold the
men on and so I dismissed the cases."
HE IS STILLIN DOUBT.
Prseeutor Lowe Thinks, However,
That He Will Run for Re

j-esterdaj- that Judge James Gibson, trem
bling with stage fright over Mr. Lowe's an
nouncement that he might make the race
for re-election as an Independent-Populist-Prohibition
candidate, approached the pros
ecutor and bc-ought him to step aIde "in
the Interest of harmonj" and things of a
like nature. So pathetic was the judge's
appeal that Mr. Lowe is yaid to have con
sented to be "no stumbllirg block in the
partj s progress to the office--."
Mr. Lowe tells a different storj. He as
he has not decided to keep out of the rare.
He sajs that just now his friends have the
petition readj to circulate for the suO signa
tures necessarv in order that he maj run
as an independent candidate under the law.
and that he has not jet maele up hl mind
whether he will run or not. He avs he
will not decide the matter one wav or the
other until he ees what the Populists do

then there Is no reason whj- it should not
be considered a thing of value, worthy of
adequate compensation, when being asked

that ownership of all the public utilities
