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.

Of the Council Committee on Ordi
nances Held Last Evening.
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
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
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
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
'Phis cleared the table for the rail
way ordinances, and the Wheeling A:
Kim Grove franchise was taken up.

The Local Committee Held Its First
Meeting, Last Night
Commence Arrangements for the
Big Epworth League Convention
to be Held Next Year in Wheel

*mg Delegates from Pennsylvania,

District of Columbia to be Pres
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.
