A New Jumper unit GOO Fret of Ho*o Ordered for tlie Borough. The adjourned meeting of the borough council on Monday evening, Jield to take action on such matters as were referred to committees 011 the Ist iust., drew a full house and standing room was again at a preinuim. The by-plays and capers which are beginning to make the council notorious did uotmaterializo iu as large quantities as had been anticipated, al though all the members were present, except Messrs. Davis and Rudewick. The question of purchasing more host* took up considerable time. Charles Se.ckelman, representing the New York Fabric Fire Hose' Co., was present. A motion that the buying of additional hose be laid over until the committee appointed to wait on the Water Com pany reports was lost by a vote of four to four. A motion to increase the amount which the lire committee is au thorized to order, from 500 to 1,000 feet, was lost by tho same vote. The fire committee was then ordered to meet with tiie directors of the Citizens' Hose Company and ascertain what, kind of hose is now in use and what is best adapted to their needs. This was done after council adjourned, and the committee has placed an order for 500 feet of Arrow Brand hose and one No. 3 hose cart. The resignation of Dr. E. W. Butter as a member of the Board of Health was ac cepted. Tho light and water committee re ported in favor of changing tho location of live fire plugs now in use and adding six new plugs, making a total of thirty plugs in the borough. The report was adopted, also a report that the are lights at Johnson and Birkbceks streets and at Adam and Carbon streets bo changed without delay. A requisition for several articles need ed by the fire department was read and ordered to be procured soon as possible. The police and lockup committee asked for more Lima to examine the July report of Burgess Gallagher, given thorn on thu Ist Inst. Considerable discus sion between tho burgess and some of the members followed as to the accept ance of the report. It was finally agreed to give tho committee further time, so that Solicitor Stroh can pass upon certain portions of the report. In tho meantime the police and others whose pay is included in tho report cannot receive orders fur the amounts due tliem. Attorney George T. Brown, 011 behalf of John W. Davis, stated that his client was willing to give a release for ten feet of ground on either the front or rear of his Walnut street property, conditioned that council pay him. The council agreed to meet with Mr. Davis and At torneys Stroll and Brown to discuss the matter. Tho park committee reported having met tho Citizens' Hose, Company direc tors iu reference to the stands and plat form on the ground. Tho joint com mittee agreed to have council dispose of the same, the proceeds to be paid to the lire company. The park committee also recommended that tho Associated Wheelmen be per mitted to use tho north side of Main street as a cycle path, provided that Solicitor Stroii approve of this action, after tho necessary papers covering the rules and ordinances of the borough be prepared and signed. These hills were ordered paid: Read ing Foundry Co., iron pipe, $100.70; Le high Valley Railroad, freight 011 stone and terra cotta pipe, $20.51; Silas Wood ring, picture frame, 70 cents. A bill of $2.50 from High Constable Mollik for burying animals in July was referred to Solicitor Stroll. A Difference of Opinion. Iliram I®. Kuntz, clerk of the orphans' court of this county, has received an ofilcial letter from tho revenue depart ment iu which it Is hold that no stamp is requirod on marriage licenses or certi ficates, as follows: "Tho marriage licenses issued by clerks of the orphans' court are nottax abio, neither are tho original certificates of marriage, subject to the stamp tax. It Is held that the marriage license law is one requiring tho collection and regis tration of vital statistics as a basis for the administration of public health laws, and that certificates issued under such laws come within the exomption of sec tion 17 of the war revenue act." Clerk of tho Orphans' Court' Klinglnr, of Lehigh county, who wrote to Revenue Collector McLain for an opinion regard ing thu tax on marriage licenses, has received this decision: "Reply to your letter, you are advised that marriage certificates aro required to bear a ten-cent stamp, as all other certificates not otherwise provided for in this act. Your license will not be required to bo stamped, but tho original certificate should bo stamped and tho duplicate should indicate that the origi nal lias been stamped." Clerk of tho Orphans® Court Stauffer, of Northampton county, has roco'ved a letter from the internal rovonin depart ment at, Washington, stating that the department held that marriage license certificates were not subject to the new : tax. \ Revenue Taxes Must Ho l'aid. From tlio Hnzlctnu Sentinel. Deputy Collector R. 11. Hrundago was In the city yesterday in the interest of the government as involved in the collection of war taxes. He said that he found here, as he had found else where, an ignorance with regard to the payment of these taxes. Many thought that they were to receive direct instruc tions concerning their liabilities and in consequence had paid no attention to the legal demands. Hut Mr. Hrundago told all such that it was their misfortune that they had maintained such an im pression as it was not the duty of the government to apply itself to any such labor. If those who were liable to pay taxes had omitted to inform themselves through the proper channels, they would have to suffer the consequences. There was no way out. of it. Mr. Hrundago suggested that the. fol lowing information might be of value and interest to certain people. Pawn brokers are taxed #51); proprietors of public exhibitions or shows, for money, •$lO each; proprietors of theatres, in cities of 25,000 population or more. #100; of circuses, #100; and the latter takes in county fairs and horse races. Howling alleys and billiard or pool rooms, #5 an alley or table. All druggists and liquor dealers must stamp up their sparkling, or other wines, at the rato of one cent for pints, and two for quarts. All medi cinal proprietary articles, and all medi cinal patent articles; all medicinal trade mark articles, and all medicinal articles compound by any formula published or unpublished, must bo stamped; this in cludes domestic and imported goods. All these are stamped up at the retail price of the article. Democratic Convention Called. The Democratic county committee met in Wilkesbarro on Tuesday after noon, every member, and in addition a large number of prospective candidates, being present. Rush Treseott was elected county chairman by acclamation, and after a good deal of discussion it was decided to hold the county convention on August •to and the primaries on August 27. The action of the state convention was in dorsed. A resolution saying it was the sense of this committee that no alleged Democrat who Uns given aid and assistance to the Republican party for a price, or for any other unworthy con sideration, should be allowed to act as a delegate—or a member of the vigilance committee at the coming election or at any future time, was offered and pro voked much discussion. State Chairman (barman said he did not believe in receiving those who have strayed away from the party with open arms. There was nothing in the great book so unjust as the treatment Record ed the prodigal son. lie has no right to any portion of the fatted calf. Every man who strays away from the party at a national election should be kept on probation until the next national elec tion. lie said every Democrat who turns traitor should be disciplined, but he did not believe the resolution present ed was sufficiently comprehensive. At the conclusion of Mr. Carman's re marks the resolution was adopted. Lehigh County Journalism. Tho town of Emaus, Lehigh county, is an exhilarating place. So J. ]). Weaver, proprietor of tho Record, found it. He published sovoral straight-from the-shoulder articles about a man named William Stable, who owned a hotel and casino. Tho references to Mr. Stable were not of a pleasing kind, and he cornered Editor Weaver in the Record office and used up a vocabulary in denunciation. Hut tho wife of the enraged hotel man was more aggressive, and struck and scratched the editor un mercifully. All this broke Mr. Weaver's spirit and appreciation of journalistic glory, and he forthwith sold his news paper plant to Clinton A. Mohr, who lias changed the name of the publication to the Shir.

Spanish Government Think* It* Note Will Satisfy the United States—Queen Regent HHH Approved or Senor Sua*ta'* Position Says f*le Did Not Want the War In the First Place—President Ha* Received No Ofllclul Word. Washington, Aug. 11.—Although as yet without official confirmation of the report from Madrid that the Spanish Government has decided to accept the terms laid down by the United States as essential to the negotiations of a treaty of peace, the Administration is proceeding under the conviction that the report is true, anil is giving atten tion to the steps to be talieu uext. Madrid, Aug. 11.—The Cabinet coun cil Sunday evening approved the re ply to the United States, which, it is said, accepts without reservation the American conditions of peace. The reply was telegraphed Sunday night to Scnor Leon y Castillo, the Spanish Ambassador to France, so that M. 0:1 in bo 11, the French Ambas sador at Washington, would receive it Monday. The Government if. convinced that the note will be satisfactory to the M. Jt'I.KS CASIIION, The French Ambassador Who Is Acting for Spain in tho Negotiations. Washington Government and that a suspension of lioslililies will be Its im mediate consequence. It Is Impossible to ascertain precise ly the text of Spain's answer to tlie American peace terms, but from a well-informed source it is learned that while the answer does not discuss I lie four liases which the United States makes an essential preliminary to peace, and which Spain accepts with out reservation, It points out that in order to avoid the definitive negotia tions being in any way complicated liy incidents of the war, it is expedient to agree beforehand lo a suspension of hostilities. It is snld the Spanish note In digni fied language asserts that Spain bows to tlie force of circumstances, having done nothing to provoke the war, Into which she lias been unwillingly led In tlie defense of her rights and terri tories. A willingness is expressed to appoint delegates to meet the Ameri can Commissioners to discuss a regime for the Philippines. Miles Advances In 1 'orlo Ktco.
