GASES IN
CITY COURT
There were but three cases before
tlie Municipal court tills morning.
Drunkenness was the charge In each
case and while two of them were
fined $1 and costs each the other man
was dismissed as lie was sick.
Because Edward McElroy yelled
"ice" at Miss Bessie May Burrierand
Mias Elsie Burricr.he
a charge of disorderly conduct, but
was dismissod when arraigned in City
Court lust night.
The young women testified that
McElwee called ice at them at Eighth
and Market streets, and Third and
Market streets recently, and they did
not like such language, which was
meaningless to them.
Clifford Morton, one of the wit
nesses fbr McElroy,cleared away much
of the mystery Till the case, and en
lightened the court on the meaning
of tlie word ice as applied to the
young women. He explained that,.
recently tho voting women had been
riding bicycles, and their manner of,
riding caused some young men to a p. ■
on
ply the term icc carts'to the bicy
cles.
McElroy took the stand in his own
defense, and said he was one of a
crowd of young men who remarked
icc when the Burrier girls passed. He
said that when he was driving a wa
gon fur a milk dealer the girls called
milk at him many times.

of spectators as they listened made
them shudder.

molished and traffic was also delayed

ing. Tlie extra freight was making
up for Philadelphia and besides flic
engine and tender had on four empty
cars.
Before the engineer of the passen.
ger train could stop Ills engine the
train sideswipped the freight In an
instant there was wild confusion
among the few passengers who were
so suddenly awakened by the jar
Word was sent to French street
station at once and as soon as possible
Hie wrecking train was sent lo tile
scene. It was at first thought that
a number of the crew and also pas
sengers were seriously injured and
added much to the confusion. Ai
thougbt the accident happened at
an early hourln a few minutes a large
crowd cf people residing iit the Ninth
ward, who heard the crash were at
tlie scene of the wreck.
The first work of tlie officials of
tlie railroad was to attend to tne in
jured, but it was learned that tlie
accident In that respect was not as
serious as was expected. Engineer
Mulldoon of the passenger train and
two of the mail clerks were slightly
.injured. The passengers were badly
jarred, but none of them sustained
any injuries
Tlie passenger train was In charge
of Conductor Newman and Engineer
Muliloon.
While the passengers and crew es
caped with but few bruises, the dam
age to the two trains was heavy.
\\ hen tlie engine of train No. 66 aiicl
several of the ears attached sideswlp

Meld A Conerence.
A conference was held last
night between the members of
the fue
committee of City
( ouncil and the Police Com
IIIH'IOIIOI'S.
■Superintendent
Avilon expressed the opinion
tliul about fourteen miles of
new copper wire should be put
in to make the
date.
J. W.
system up to
He estimated that the
cost of repairing the boxes and
apparatus damaged by the
recent storm and the cost of
the new wire at #2,!>00, which
is a smaller amount than was
expected. It is a question
whether the council will allow
the new wire to be purchased.
The subject of placing win s
uiHlergrouml was touched upon
briefly, mid Superintendent
Avion slid that with the
„ pro
80 iit number of conduits it!
would be useless to place wires
underground, and lie also
pointed out that in ilic re; e it
storm the telephone companies
had wires burned out iu the
conduits Miidcrgi'ouiid so that,
they were but little protection
under present conditions.
The members of council feel
that the lire and police systems
should be placed in as good
condition as possible, but they
do not feel that the cilv is able
to purchase new wire if it can
possibly be avoided. The sub
ject will lie discussed at length
later.
