VOL. VI. No. 7. BOROUGH LEGISLATION. COUNCILMEN MEET AND TRANSACT IMPORTANT BUSINESS. Opinions of the Korough Solicitor Given Upon Some Intricate Questions—Ridge Street to be Opene<l to a \Vi<lth of Thirty Feet from South to Main. The members of council met in special Bession on Tuesday evening. Messrs. Williamson, Moore, McLaughlin, De- Pierro and Fritzinger were present. The minutes of the last regular meeting were read and approved. The president stated that the object of the meeting was to hear the report of tho special committee who waited on the borough solicitor regarding tho matters rnfarpwl to him. Councilman DePierro presented the solicitor's report, and it was read by the secretary as follows: In answer to the.matters referred by you to me I respectfully reply as follows: 1. The council cannot legally employ public moneys to defend officers from the consequences of their own acts, anil as to the case of John Martiszus, I do not know that the officers were engaged in doing any work for which the council would bo justified in defending them. , 2. In answer to the question, "can the owner of the property from Chestnut street south to alley be compelled to put down ditch, etc.," I would say that under the circumstances in this case I think not. There is no space for a side walk along the lot, and tho council has before now purchased the land along the I)onop estate, also from Adam Sachs, and at its own cost put down curbing, sidewalk and gutter for Patrick Dooris. There is no gutter along the tots owned by the Knights of Labor and the side walk along the Lubrecht and Fowler properties does not conform to the bor ough ordinance. Under these circum stances I am of the opinion that if the council lays the gutter they cannot re cover from the owner, and if the ordin ance is to be enforced it should be done in regard to all in the vicinity. 3. As to the matter of William Herz berg selling at auction, as it is presented to me there is no violation of the ordin ance. An auction is where an article is put up for sale and sold to one of many bidders; it is a consecutive bidding in tended to reach the highest price by exciting competition. Since be only oilers at oue price it is not an auction; and since it is only done in his store room, it cannot be a public outcry as that must be made in a public place Buch as a street or alley. 4. I will when court is next in session apply for the appointment of viewers to report on the Ridge street matter. I would recommend that a new ordinance bo ordained and published. 5. I will at the earliest possible moment procure the exact location of the public road which is now Johnson street and then advise the council further. Respectfully Yours, John D. Hayes, liorough Solicitor. The first, second and third sections were laid over until some future time. The fourth and fifth gections were ap proved. Councilman DePierro presented an ordinance for tho opening and widening of Ridge street from South to Main, and it was read for the first time, the vote stood: Ayes, 5; nays, nono. Messrs McLaughlin, Fritzinger and DePierro were appointed a committee to meet the officers of the Water Company in reference to the location for fence on the north-east end of the park and to lay out the same. The ordinance for the opening and widening of Ridge street was road a second time and agreed to by the same vote as before. Patrick Dougherty presented himself before council and asked that the bor ough place new sills under his stable, claiming that the water (lowing down the alley had rotted them. A general discussion took place and the matter was laid over until the street committee make its report. The Ridge street ordinance was again read, and approved of finally by a vote same as two previous times. On motion of Mr. DePierro, seconded by Mr. Mc- Laughlin, the ordinance was ordered to he published. A petition presented from residents on the lower end of Main street request ed council to place a street lamp there. It was decided to do so. The secretary was instructed to order a lamp and the street committee will locale the position where it is to be placed. During the time of the reading of the solicitor's opinion, Messrs. Neuhurger, Geritz and Ileizberg spoke upon the questions under discussion. The Hu/.leton Liar. From the White Haven Journal. There is a chap over in Hazloton who is entitled to the entire bakery for the brilliantly imaginative and highly color ed special dispatches he sends to the press of the country concerning the peaceful denizens of White Haven and vicinity. A few months ago he sent out a blood curdling tale that White Ilaven was in the possession of tramps, who pil laged the town, held some of our maidens in ransom, and performed diver other outrages of equal seriousness. Our peo ple were astounded on reading this in the daily papers next morning, for the story was news to them, but of a charac- ter that inspired wrath and angor at its utter falsity. On Sunday we were again made the the victims of this chap's Saturday night's debauch, for the city papers con tained a soul-harrowing tale that struck terror to the stoutest heart, -and evoked a torrent of anethemas upon the head of this depraved wretch. This time he en tered the Bacred vaults of a lone ceme tery and with ghoulish glee, revelled in tho horrifying scenes whffch his diseased brain depicted. Hallucination was vari ously printed, according as the city edi tors were more or less remote from White Haven. The Philadelphia pa pers had it with scare heads on the front page, complete with all details. The New York papers put it inside, and con densed it somewhat, dating it at llazle ton. HIGHLAND DOTS. We have a few bloods running loose in town who have been making them selves very conspicious for several days past and" it is pretty hard to tell into what shady spot they will be cast unless they mend their ways. Their latest prank was put into effect on Monday nightwhen they nearly destroyed a neigh bor's garden by pulling up everything they could get their hands upon. This kind of business will not be tolerated any longer and tho sooner these smart young men quit it the bettor it will bo for themselves. John McMenamiu, outside foreman at No. 2 breaker, was transferred to No. 5 Pinkash on Tuesday. William Berner, who held a similar position at tho latter place, takes the formanship of No. 2. Mrs. Albert Snyder, of Sandy Run, called on friends here this week. Hugh McNelis removed his family to llazleton on Tuesday. Patrick Quinn was on the sick list on Monday. The plasterers are now taking their turn at fixing up the houses. John Trimble, of Sandy Run, was a visitor to town on Sunday. The breakers are running about half time owing to scarcity of coal.

Mrs. Janet Vernon, of Philadelphia, is visiting at the residence of her par ents, Mr. and Mrs. John It. Boyle. The merchants who deal in huckle berries can get any quantity of them here if they will only eomo for them. Never before did the people of this place take such an interest in picking as this season. Some of the pickers have wash tubs full and would be glad to sell them. A man from White Haven is the only dealer that comes hero to buy and as soon as he strikes town a small army can be seen going to him with tubs, bas kets, buckets and vessels of every des cription filled with berries.

Insurance Agent Bacbman, of llazle ton, circulated among his customers here Monday evening. Miss Annie Weeks, of Plymouth, is visiting relatives in town.
