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

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

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

the centre line of Main street, south
of Twenty-seventh, and thence curv

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

NEW STEEL PROCESS.
A I.arge Company of Export* nml Capltal
itttn Witness Successful Trial* at Beliaire
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
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

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
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
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

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- !
