LIKELY TO PI _ Orange Council Expected to Turn Down Proposal for Joint Disposal Plant. Despite the efforts of Councilman Henry T. Stetson to have the Orange Common Council indorse the plan of the special sewer committee for the expenditure of some more of the $3,000 appropriation on plans and advance drawings for an lmlioff sewage disposal plant in the Soho section* of Belleville and Bloomfield, it Is believed the re quest will be flatly turned down at the next open meeting of the council. The scheme was broached last night at a secret session, which Mr. Stetson in sisted upon, regardless of the fact that the council had passed resolutions to hold all its meetings open. It is known that the older men of the council are absolutely opposed to the proposed Imhoff plant scheme and favor going into the Passaic Valley trunk sewer agreement. The council refused last night to take any action, despite the plea that the city would save money in going in with East Or ange and Montclair. The members of the citizens’ committee, consisting of Frederick W. Kelsey, John D. Everitt and William A. Calhoun, who are act ing with the special Bewer committee, were present. Mr. Stetson entered into a long ex planation of the committee’s stand, to gether with a reason for excluding re porters from the session, but John C. Fineran, Democratic leader, did not feel disposed to hear any such explanation and Mr. Stetson sat down. and. accord ing to teports, had nothing more to say for the rest of the meeting. 'After compelling the reporters to lease the rooms at (he suggestion of Mr. Stetson Hie members barricaded themselves behind loc ked doors and re fused to give out any information of what took place. Daniel Coleman, president of the council, and Council man Edward Cheetham made every effort to have an open meeting, but were ttnsucessful. After the meeting it was stated that the body will instruct the State Board of Health to draw plans and specifica tions for a joint disposal plant with East Orange and Montclair. Council man Fineran said that he will oppose (ho project. 17-YEAR-OLD GIRL ROUTS BURGLARS WITH GUN. I1ED H l.LvS, Pa..

I.OS ANGELES, Cal., Nov. 18.—Sum moned by subpoenas served In some rases after midnight, men Intending to go to work today appeared. Instead, before Judge Walter Borwell for pre liminary examination to see if they were personally qualified to serve as jurors in the McNamara murder trial. “I got twelve men out of the first venire of eighteen men in a murder case not long ago,” said Assistant Dis trict Attorney Fredericks.

STAGG SAYS HE IS IN RACE TO STAY For the first time, he says. Council man William E. Stagg, of the East Orange City Council, today announced himself a candidate for reelectton as chairman of that body. His attention was first called by the newspaper ar ticles on the question, Mr. Stagg said, and as he has virtually been made a candidate by the press he intends to be In the race | '"It Is all up to the Council whether they want me again or not," continued the ehkirman, "and I could hardly re fuse to stand now. i have not spoken to a person pbout the matter, however, hnd have not asked any of my col leagues for their votes. Neither do l Intend to work for or against my elec tion as presiding officer of the Coun cil." Mr. Stagg will begin his new duties as assemblyman on January 17, and 1t is ills belief that he will be able to take . care of both positions satisfactorily if | the counctlmen are desirous that he should be returned as chairman, despite the claims being made that he could j not very well act as chairman in con nection with his legislative duties. The faction supporting Councilman i Frederick W. Saxelby for the chairman ship is working hard in the effort to secure votes and now feels confident of victory. $50,000 INCREASE IN BUILDING PERMIT VALUES.

Easy Enough if You Have a 24 or 40=inch Re flector. * FLAGSTAFF, An?... Nov. IS—The following statement was issued from the Lowell Observatory today, giving supplementary information regarding the recent announcement by Professor Percival Lowell that he had discovered frost on Mars. 'Frost hag been seen on Mars by all observers here for a fortnight. Two hundred photographic images of the planet have been taken both with the twenty-four inch reflector and the., forty-inch reflector, and all show it very prominently. "On November 14 measures and photographs were made of It at the Lowell Observatory at Intervals all the way from 110 degrees to 214 degrees, in all of which it appeared on the sunrise edge of the planet, never advancing de tachedly upon the disk and thus prov ing conclusively that it was something melting under the sun's rays. "The Idea that the polar caps of Mars and their attendant phenomena are dne to carbon dioxide Is an old suggestion, broached tong since by persons not suf ficiently acquainted with chemistry to recognise its inapplicability to Mars. l)r. Lowell disproved this many years ago. The proof consists tn the fact that under pressure of one atmosphere or less carbon dioxide evaporates with out melting, while the blue band that borders ihe polar caps of Mars as they contract proves that they melt, before evaporating. “All the other phenomena confirm this, by being Inconsistent with a tem perature so low as carbon dioxide to be solid would require. Water vapor and oxygen have shown their presence in Dr. Slipper's spectogram of Mars, made at the Lowell observatory, while carbon dioxide has not.” 15 LADS IN EXAM FOR MIDDY OR CADETSHIP.
