Are a moderately heavy canvas-like fabric of linen. They have enough crispness and body to set well, but being loosely woven, insure comfortable hot weather dresses. The color range is not large, but it is decidedly effective, each piece consisting of a blend of two colors. They need no lining, wash beautifully and are undoubtedly the hit of the season.

A Large Amount of Old Straw Threshed Over, but Very Little Progress Made — An Exciting Controversy Between Represen tatives of the Terminal Railway Company and the Spears Axle Works—The Druggists Will Not be Taxed—The Wheeling and Elm Grove Railway Ordinance Read One Time, and an Adjourn ment Taken Until Wednesday Evening. The Council Committee on Ordi nances met last evening for the especial purpose of considering pending railway ordinances, all the members being pres ent except Mr. List, who was kept at home by a severe cold. There were present a number of attorneys and citizens interested in the measures up for consideration. The first matter taken up was the ordinance giving the Bridge and Ter minal Railway Company the right to lay, maintain and operate a railway track up Main street, south of Twenty seventh, curving thence into Twenty seventh street, and then into the plant of the Belmont mill of the Wheeling Iron and Nail Company. After the measure, which has been through the Committees on Railroads and Streets, Alleys and Grades, had been read, the somewhat intimately related and rival ordinance of the Spears Axle Company, also asking for a railway switch, con necting with the B. <ic O.. was also read. Upon invitation. Mr. \V. P. Hub bard. c 'tinsel for the Bridge and Ter minal Company, presented an argu ment. in the course of which he sail! the Terminal Company was opposed to the Axle Company switch for at least throe reasons-1. that it would prevent the Terminal Company from carrying out its plans and the Wheeling Iron and Nail Company from receiving ben efit: 2. that it would "galvanize into 1 if one of what were characterized as "sham” spur lines lately laid down by the B. & O. on its ground south of Twenty-seventh street, in the van hope of preventing a crossing of their | line by an order of Court, and. 3, that j the city had no right to grant to any private corporation, save a railroad company, the use of the public streets for railroad purposes. Mr. Hubbard ws replied to by Gen era! Alfred Caldwell, who spoke at con- ! siderahle length, in favor of the Axle Company bne and by way of criticism of the Terminal right, and at th* same time be said bis Company did not at all des're to obstruct the Terminal Company in fact, it would li‘<e to see the Terminal come there his Comnanv would be 'ts customer and would do business with it but it des5red "two strings to its bow" and a switch of its j own, not controlled by any railroad j company. Mr. Hubbard renlied. largely on the j law point of the lack of rtuht on the | part of the city to grant a railroad right ( to a private corporation, which he maintained, and to pointing out an evident roincid?nce of facts between certain actions by the B. & 0. and a chance of heart on the part of the Spears Axle Company. The discussion was rather sparkling and lively at times. Engineer Schroll, of the Terminal Railway Company, explained the plat of his Company’s proposed switch, as well as that of the Spears Company. Other gentlemen then took a hand in the controversy, which was prolonged to considerable length. Mr. Daniel List interjecting a new feature in the shape of a consideration for the grant, and proposed that the city compel the Ter minal Company to donate to the city the strip of ground on the north side of Eighteenth street, between Chapline ami Market. Mr. Hubbard replied to ibis in a very emphatic manner, illus trating liis remarks by a diagram, and recalling a celebrated conversation be tween the late Judge Cochran an 1 the late Bonj. Fisher. It was quite a shak ing up of dry bones. Then Col. George B. Caldwell got back to the real point at Issue by sug gesting that the whole matter was within the control of Council, which could give the Spears Compan> t''< east side of Main street, south of Twen ty-Seventh and the Terminal Company the middle of Main street, and elabo rated his argument and the collateral points. _ _ _ „ , He was followed by Mr. < . R. Hub bard. of the Wheeling Steel and Iron Company, who spoke on behalf of his corporation. . , , Mr. A. J. Clarke, a Director ot the , Wheeling Steel and Iron Company. als“ 1 spoke briefly for his Company. By this time it was ten o’clock, and the Committee went into executive ses sion. The Committee went over all the maps and papers, and then the whole matter was referred to the City Engineer and Solicitor. ■phe application of the Butchers As sociation for a switch at the cast end of Sixteenth street, was then taken up and was referred to the Solicitor to draw an ordinalca, and the City En gineor for an px&niin&tion. The Soli< itor reported, in the matter of druggist’s license, that the < it\ had no power to levy a license for the sale of intoxicants by druggists, so long as the intoxicants were sold tor mechan ical or medicinal purposes. He forti fied his conclusion by reciting certain facts. 'Phis cleared the table for the rail way ordinances, and the Wheeling A: Kim Grove franchise was taken up. The ordinance was read in full, and Anil re*t for tired mothers in a warm bath wUh<Vri<'t'KA >*'>\r,amla>inp1en,*j*lication of CfTiciKA ointment), tin Cfiict'itv KtM: in rtreat skin cure, a lord instant relief.

It was duly ipcorporated. Then Mr. Fair moved that the meas I tire 1)0 laid over and a copy furnished each member. This was debated at some length, and it was finally decided that a copy of each of the pending ordinances be fur nished. The Committee adjourned to meet Wednesday night, when railroad or dinances exclusively will be con sidered. WILL BE LAID SUNDAY.

The Local Committee Held Its First Meeting, Last Night Commence Arrangements for the Big Epworth League Convention to be Held Next Year in Wheel . ing—About Two Thousand Visit *mg Delegates from Pennsylvania, Maryland, West Virginia and District of Columbia to be Pres ent. I.ast night the local committee met in the office of Attorney W. E. Patter son to make plants for the holding of the Epworth League convention of the Fourth General Conference District, which will meet in Wheeling in either Junoo ,or July, 1898. Those present at ltet night's meet ing were Rev. Archibald Moore, the President; F. M. Giesey, Vice Presi dent; Wm. E. Patterson, Secretary; F. T. Cartwright, Treasurer, and James Sigafoose, of Moundsville, Cor responding Secretary. This committee was appointed at the last convention of Wheeling district to act as the gen eral committee in making all arrange ments for the holding of the great Ep worth League convention in this I city next year. The Forth General Conference includes Pennsylvania, Maryland, West Virginia and the Dis trict of Columbia. The convention is held bi-annually and last met in Har risburg, Pa., in lS'Jtj. The local com mittee has commenced early in order to adopt plain that will make the con vention a success, for the committee realizes that it has a large undertak in. Means were discussed of raising the money that will be needed for ex penses. Not less than $700 or $8'10 will be required, and probably more. As none of the Opera Houses or Iia 116 are large enough to accommodate the audiences that will be expected, the committee has in contemplation the plan of holding the meeting under a tent on the State Fair Grounds. It is ex pected that an audience of five or six thousand people will be present at the night meetings. The committee will rent a tent belonging to the State camp meeting association, which will hold 2,.'00 people and lease another tent in addition. The convention will be in session three days. Prominent bishops of the Methodist Church, leading di | vines and Epworth League workers will be here to lead and take part in the meetings. Something like 3,COO visiting delegates are expected.
