JUDGMENT I Councilman Wurtntold Councilman Devers not to mind what the Herald Bald nbout the repalrlugof the flue In the First ward, but It took lilm a short time to get Into an ungraceful discus sion with that gentleman on nu other matter. There la no doubt that Coun cilman Devers stepped over the boun dary when he attacked Mr. Lamb and that an apology would not be out of place; and, at the same time, ab ex planatlon Is due from Mr. Wurm as to why he choked o It. Air. Devers when he called attention to the flue in the First ward building. The fact that the Herald called attention to the evil cannot excuse Mr. Wurm. The Herald has that gentleman's calibre down to a point. Mr. Wurm, no doubt, means well, but the methods , he adopts to accomplish the good work he plans are such that when the time arrives for him to put them in opera tion he finds the machinery blocked by the results of his own indiscretion. As an example, the discussion of the charge made by Mr. Severs is at point. Mr. Lamb answered the charge iialm ly, and Mr. James, while issuing a challenge for proof, behaved in such a manner that his opponent could but use civil language. Mr. Wurm, on the other hand, plunged into the flood of heated debate and distinguished himself by threatening to summarily eject his opponent. Mr. Wurm should remember that, while councllmen are servants of the people, they hold positions that should command and maintain dignity and respect. While Mr. Wurm has been, in many respects, a good councilman, his term has been studded with the aols of a man who Is not guided by sound judgment, and we regret ts say that as his term Is drawing to an end CENTS PEE YARD FOE a good home-made rag carpet It is one of those nxlra heavy carpets, madoof the best yam and clean rags.

Wo will Btlll persevere in the hope that Mr. Wurm'a prejudice against the Herald will not curtail the per formance of his duty to the people, and we respectfully nsk him to vlelt the house where the fire occurred on Thursday and ascertain whether the apparatus in use as a chimney was such as the borough ordinances re quire. When residents of the neighbor hood say that the place promised to be a source of a good Are on five different occasions it is certainly Improper for a member of Council to treat a report in that connection in the manner to which Mr. Devers' remarks were Bub jectcd on Thursday night. With the completion of the electric railway Shenandoah will want to throw off its borough clothes and become a city. While all sensible people of town will acknowledge that a perfected and reliable electrical flro', alarm system will be of incalculable advantage to the borough, it is nevertheless the fact that those better acquainted with the financial condition of the borough feel timid in assuming the responsibility. But now the inevitable ptesenta it self. Council has adopted the system and we should accept as a beneficial evil. While several of our council men do not think the borough is able, financially, to put it in the system, perhaps, upon reflection, they will be able in the next four mouths to ar range the condition of affairs bo that the burden will be less heavy. If the contractors are held to their agreement and apparatus meets with expectations tho investment in the fire alarm ap paratus will be found far more profit able than that on the hill the stone crusher. The establishment of borough water works will mean an undertak ing of the people, hence all who have the undertaking in hand should walk the chalk line and not "carry water an both shoulders." A siph of relief escapes from the people in consequence of tho report of the joint committee on water works. Read Roese's holiday advertisement.
