HE LEADER, 1020, 1022* 1224 MAIN STREET, i Rejected By the Committee on Ordin ances, Last Night. The Elm Grove Ordinance Will be Reported to Council at This Even ing’s Session—Ordinances Recom mended Fixing Fees for Use of Patrol Wagon by Non-Residents and Fixing Salaries of Assistants to the City Engineer—The Spears Axle Works and Terminal Rail way Ordinances. The Council Committee on Ordi nances met again, last evening, pursu ant to adjournment on Wednesday of last week, to resume consideration of the Wheeling railway ordinances and the other railroad matters which have been pending before the Committee for some time. In addition to the commit teemen there were present the usual array of counsel and interested parties, including W. P. Hubbard, lion, John A. Howard, D. Carter List, Esq., John Coniff. Manager Wright, of the Wheel ing Pailway Company, Mayor Butts. President M. A. Chew, of the Second Branch of Council.. Manager Taussig, of the Terminal Railway Company, General Alfred Caldwell. John Bodley, Esq., William Erskine, Esq.. Paul O. Reymaun, Esq.. City Engineer A. L. White, City Solicitor Nesbitt, Stipt. Left us of the Wheeling Railway Com pany. Col. Geo. B. Caldwell, and a number of members of Council and cit izens generally. After ti e reading of the minutes of the las; session. Mr. List moved to take up the Wheeling railway ordinance, and it was adopted anJ the ordinance was read by the Clerk. «u open session. At the conclusion of the reading Mr. List meved that rep.c-seniatives of the Wheelin; Railway Company be heard, and it was adopted. In reply, Mr. Ers kine ^aiil he believed lie had nothing to add to what lie bad said at a pie vious meeting, but a moment later he said the ordinance was not, and did not purport to be. framed just as the Wheeling Company desired it. The pe tition of the Company better outlined the Company's ideas, but as the ( om nany could not possibly knew in ad vance what Council might do. it could not frame an instrument meeting the views of the Council. The Committee then went into the usual “executive” session, interested parties being excluded and the doors closed. The members spent some lit tle time in private conference, and then, on motion by List, the ordinance v.as taken up by sections for consider ation and amendments. When the reading of the first section was con cluded. Mr. Weisgerber moved to re ject, as it covered the same route as the Elm Grove franchise. It was adopted, without discussion. As this practically killed the ordinance, on the question of further reading the whole measure was rejected, without divis ion. The doors were then reopened and an ordinance specifying fees for the use of the city ambulance by non-resi dents able to pay such fees: and an ordinance providing for three assist ants for the City Engineer, giving the draughtsman $900 per year and rod and chain men $4S0 per year, were fa vorably recommended. The ordinance granting the Spears axle works the right to lay a railroad track on South Main street, south of Twenty-seventh, and to maintain an over-head tramway across Main street, between the two buildings owne 1 by the Company. then came up. The City Solicitor reported upon the legality of the city s grant, and the liability to be thereby created. He stated that the city had the right to grant, and so long as no abutting property owners objected, the city would run no risks. C itv En.-,.n eer White said lie had made a plat of the locality, showing the lines desired by tlie Axle Works and the Terminal Railway Company and Wheeling Hon Company. This map was carefully ex amined. and it was agreed to read the Terminal ordinance, and consider l.oth measures together, with the purpose of so adjusting matters as to give each Company what it wanted. In connec tion with this ordinance there was read an amendment in the nature ot a con dition, that in consideration of the grant, the Terminal Com pany should give a deed to the city for the strip of land on the north side of Eighteenth strict, be tween Market and Cbaplinc. Another “executive" session was or dered. and the ordinances were taken up. Mr. White explained the engin eering problems, saying he had made a wholly new plan, with the i lea of accommodating both petitione's. After a large amount of talk, a mo tion was adopted granting the Spears ordinance in such manner as to make the centre of their track thirteen feet from the property line on the ea-;tside of Main street. This was followed by a motion to grant the Terminal ordin ance. with the centre line of the track the centre line of Main street, south of Twenty-seventh, and thence curv ing west into Twenty-seventh street, following the plan laid down by the City Engineer, which clears the north cast corner of the old Spears axle works building seven feet; and this was followed by another to allow both petitioners to connect with any track they pleased. A third motion made the Eighteenth street provision a condition of the Terminal ordinance. These were all adopted, and rhe Committee adjourned. a—(Jet the Best,—A THE WHEELING DAILY REGISTER 1 10c PER WEEK.. - - - - - 007 NEW STEEL PROCESS. A I.arge Company of Export* nml Capltal itttn Witness Successful Trial* at Beliaire Yesterday. A successful test of the John B. Hastings process for converting com mon iron into steel was made before a large audience at the Beliaire Edge Tool Co.'s works in Beliaire yesterday and Saturday. The audience was com posed chiefly of irou and steel experts, who, after putting the steel made to the most severe tests known to them, pronounced it a positve success. A company composed of Columbus and Cincinnati capitalists who are to erect a large plant in the city of Columbus, where steel will be made by this new process, were ' also present. Not only is the process a success, but the cheapness of converting the iron into steel is wonderful. Five hundred pounds of iron was treated and con verted into steel at a cost of less than 5 cents. The converter, which is an in vention of Mr. Hastings, is heated by oil and air, requiring but two gallons of oil, at the cost of 45 cents per barrel, to obtain the required*heat. The was acknowledged by those present to be the cheapest and most successful pro cess known. The steel that was made at this test costless than a cent a pound and per formed work that steel costing 40 cents a pound would do. Other articles that were cast were re-heated and put into different shapes, showing that the cast steel from this process can be made into any shape desired. The steel is positively anti-friction. THE FIRE COMMITTEE. A Very Long Session Held »t the City Unit Last Evening. A very long session of the Council Committee on Fire Department was held at the City Clerk's office, last evening.

Meeting Held Last Night at St. Luke’s Parish House—A Good Attendance — Several Very En tertaining Papers on History of Ancient Eastern Nations Follow ed by General Discussion -Class ! Adjourns Until Septemper, for the Summer Vacation •— A Flourishing Clas3. The University class of the Island held a very interesting meeting last night in the parish house of the St. Luke’s P. E. Church in spite of the un propitious weather. This class has only been organized recently, but is in a flourishing condition with a large mem bership. The meeting last night was devoted to the reading of several interesting historical papers, followed by the query and business session. M. L. M» Laugh lin read a well composed paper on the history of the Hebrews and Phoenic ians, that showed the author posessed a large information on the subject which he so successfully handled. The his tory of the Hindoo race furnished the matter for a thoughtful paper by Mrs. M. M. Burt. Miss Belle McGranaban had a paper treating on the character and customs of the Japanese people that was much appreciated. M. L. McLaughlin, the class leader, conducted a twenty minutes query ses sion. during which pertinent questions relating to the lesson and the papers read were asked and answered. Presi dent W. P. Robinson presided at a brief business session which followed. Rev. Mr. Davis, who has been organizing the university classes in the city and vi cinity, was present and made a short talk of the plans outlined for the classes during the summer. He stated that nearly all the classes had closed their spring terms and were taking a vaca tion until the fir9t. week in September. It was decided unanimously by a vote taken that the meetings of the class be temporarily discontinued until Septem ber. This, however, does not mean that all work will be stopped, as the members all intend to continue their studies during the summer months and be fully prepared when the fall term opens. Following the course devised for the work of all classes, the Island class is now engaged in the study and analysis of the fascinating history of the ancient eastern nations as carried out last even ing. The regular programme consists of reading specially prepared papers by members of the class bearing on the lt-so's under* study, followed hv a general discussion and the propounding of queries. Judging by the interest j evinced last night the Island class prom- ! ises to he among the most flourishing and successful classes organized in this vicinity. The class officers are as fol lows: President, W. P. Robinson; Vice President, Mrs. W. D. McCoy; Secretary. Miss Kate Windier; Treas urer. Wm. Irvine: Leader, M. L. Mc Laughlin; Organizer, Murray Springer: Executive Committee, M. L. McLaugh lin. Prof. A. M. Stevenson, Miss Ada Greer; Music Committee. Archie Tay lor. Miss Lucy Robinson, Miss Belle McGranahan.
