The Joint Committee Streams and Sites for the Dams of the Borough's Water "Works. THE ELEGTRIG FIRE ALARM SYSTEM ADOPTED With on Electric Railway, tho Electric Fire Alarm System, Additional Electric Lights and orough Water Works We Hoist the Banner or Enterprise and Pro gress Aloft City Charter Next. Tho mooting of tho Borough Council held last evening was ono of vast impor tance to tho taxpayers of tho borough and ono that showed a commondablo spirit of enterprise on tho part of tho councilmen. All tho members woro present, thoy being Messrs. Gable, Scheifly, Lamb, Wurm, Jamos, VanDusen, Hopkins, Coakloy, Botloridgo, llolman, Dovors, Amour, Phalon, Porlz and Moakler. As a rosult of tho business transacted the work of establishing borough walor works is to progress, tho town is to have tho latest improved flro alarm system, and ad ditional electric lights will be furnished as soon as a contract can be mado, which, however, cannot bo done before next spring. At the oponing of Council M. M. Burko, representing M. M. L'Vello, Esq., of Ash land', mado a demand for tho restoration of tbo grado to Edward Burke's property on West Centre street, or $200 damages. Tbo mattor was referred to the law committeo. The roads and highways committee re ported that gutters had boon opened and put in suitable condition for winter, and Mr. Betteridgo called" altontion to tho flow of water down Gilbert street and accumu lation of Ico at Contro street. Tho flro apparatus committeo reported that the flro plugs bad been put in condi tion for winter and two now branch pipes purchased, ono for tho Columbia and the other for tho Phoenix company. FIRE ALARM STSTEM. The flro apparatus committeo also made a roport on tho proportion to furnish tho borough with an electric fire alarm system, The members reported in favor of tho adoption of the Oamowoll non-intorfor- ing system, with nlno boxos to bo placed at tho following points: Corner of Bridge and Contro streets; Bower and Contro; Main and Contro; Bowers and Coal; Coal and Main ) Coal and Chestnut; Gilbert and Contro; Poplar and Main; Gilbert and Cherry. Mr. Charles Wann, representing tho Gamowoll company, was prosont and ox plained the system, The cost will bo 2.710. Council decided to make a contract for It. The system is to be put in working ordor by next April. THE ELECTRIC LIGHTS. , The lamp and watch committeo reported that after an interview tbe electrio light company promised to keep tho borough lights burning from daylight to daylight. In regrd to placing lights for the Turkey ltun people, the company was not prepared to do tho work at present. Its contract with the borough will oxpiro next spring and tho company will then contract to furnish tho lights, supplying an Independ ent curront for thorn, so that any mishap to them will not interfero with tho regular system. The committee ecommended that when Iho new contract is mado a light for Glover's hill be also provided for. A motion that tho report bo accepted and tho recommendation adopted, was carried, THE WATER WORKS. Mr. Lamb, In behalf of tho joint coni mlttoo of council and citizens, appointed to make arrangements for the establishment of borough water works, roportod that tho work of tho committeo had so far pro grossed that the members felt justified In making publio what had boon dono. Mr. Lamb said that after considerable Investi gation tho committoo had a pretty good Idea of the situation. Previous to the pub lic meeting held In llobbins' opera house, possession was taken of two streams in tho Catawissa Valloy Battling Hun and Davis' streams and it is proposed to orect dams and a pumping station where tho two stroaras moot. "Thero Is plenty of water there and thero is no better in tho world," said Mr. Lamb. "We have been making considerable investigation as to tho cost," continued Mr, Lamb, "but we aro not able at present to give an estimate. Wo have taken steps towards Issuing bonds and wo will in a day or so ask for bids for con structing tho dams and laying pipes. Wo ask the councilmen and citizens to inves tigate the matter themselves. It has boon no wish of ours to keep tho mattor to our selves as long as we have." Mr. Wurm wanted it understood that bo Has Secured Two Good got no boodle as a mombor of tho com mltteo. This statement ho mado in answer to reports ho said woro going about. After the report was accepted and th committoo continuod, a discussion aroso be tween Mr. Devers and Mr. Lamb, during which the formor charged Mr. Lamb with receiving as a member of tho law com mitteo on the trial of the wator company case at Pottsvillo. Mr. Lamb indignantly died tho insinua tions of impropriety that accompaniod tho chargo and said that he and other mombers of tho law committoo attondod to tho law suit undor direction of council, llo col lected evidence and performed othor work, aside from that of a witness, and he charged for but four days at Pottsvillo. "You put in a bill forovorf 13," said Mr. Dovers. "Ice," continuod Mr. Lamb, "Thirtoon dollars and so mo cents. I got $3 a day for four days. Why, gontlomen, said Mr, Lamb, addressing tho council In general, "I came back from Pottsvillo ?5 or fG out of pocket, over and abovo what you al lowed me. I spont raonoy for telegrams. ana oven witness tees, out, ot my own pocket." "Let tho gentleman tako the books of Council," put in Mr. James. "If ho is a gentloman he will prove what ha says, or withdraw tho charge." Mr. Wurm then took a hand in tho mat tdr and in a few seconds ho and Mr. Dovors were engagod in such a warm dobato that Chairman Gablo was obliged to ropeatodly bring down his Jgavel. But when Mr. Wurm said he would throw Mr. Dovers out of tho door tho chairman brought down tho gavel with extra forco and ex claimed, J,Uero, horo, gontlomen, I will have no more of this. Stop it right now, and it stopped. Tho fire apparatus committeo was given power to act in reference to a recommenda tion to send tho borough fire engine to Watorford, N. Y., for repairs. Mr. James said that one of tbo electric railway polos had mado a pavement on West Coal street too narrow and tbo street committoo was instructed to attend to tbo matter. On motion of Mr. Jamcs.council directed that an additional sum of fSCO bo ad vanced to tbo joint committoo on water works. The police roport for tho month of November was light. It showed but four arrosts. Tho fines collected amounted to ?10 and 15 porsons woro furnished with lodgings. In connection with tbo recent firo on South Main street tho firo marshal re ported ;' "Cause of firo unknown a mystory." Commendable.
