It was stated dcllnltely last night that a movement Is on foot for the es tablishment of a city department for the collection of refuse and tho possi bly building of an Incineration plant. The prime workers In this w ill be the Associated civic societies, the Inten tion of the societies being to keep New Haven as clean as possible at all times. In the meantime the children with the now famous "clean sweep" button will keep right on their work. Chairman ie,irge p. pernntnn of (he central sanitary committee of the As sociated Civic societies was seen last evening and asked to give hla opinion of the work of the children and the commllte0 cleanlng-iip (ho city. "Hut It Is not over," said Mr. Scran ton. "It Is far from that. You must remember that this committee of which I am chairman Is a permanent one. The children were asked to sign agreements In the schools which are not to terminate with their efforts of last week by any means. They arc enlistod for all time as disciples of or der and cleanliness In .New Haven. Iast week was only a beginning. We of the committee think the work done had excellent results considering tha fact that we only had a few days in which to plan the whole nrTalr and get the mnchinery of It all moving. We propose to have reoccurrlng cleanlng up days every few months; Never will New Haven get back to the mate of filth It was in ten days ago If any of our efforts can avail. "Now that the cleanlng-up week is over 1 might say that I think the chil dren showed a greater aptitude for the werk than even the most hopeful of us foretold." Mr. Scranton was asked what the future plans of the sanitary commit tee, are. He said they are being thought out along greater lines thnn the public probably suspects. "Wo have two objects Immediately In view," said Mr. Scranton. "I believe we shall accomplish both of them ulti mately. The first is the establishment of a municipal department for the col lection of ashes, gnrbage and general refuse all over the city. The past week's eleanlng-up showed eloquently the need of such a departmant. Tho central sanitary committee of which I am tho chairman, has been quietly col lecting very useful data and If nli goes Well wo hope to be able to use It to good advantage with the proper rr tles at city hall and elsewhere. "Just think of It, " said Mr. Scran ton. "I'nnservatlvn cellmate j,ar number of loads of refuse carted to the public dumps last week at B.oan.

REFERENDUM VOTE FIRST' Association nt Sunday Meeting; Votes to Kuiiul hy .Mr. Kllfcalher Properly Need Not ho Moved. The local elgar manufacturers have received Intelligence which means thai, their shops will be closed a month longer until the Clgnriiiakers' unions throughout tho Fulled States and Cim adn have had time to vole on the re port of rl. R. French and Charles Pre ble, (ho arbiters sent here hy the inter national organisation to settle tho trou bles between the men here and their employers. This news is to the effect that Mr. Prehle and Mr. French had no right when they rendered tlielr deci sion lo declare the shops of tho locil manufacturers open to union mm should tho former employes refuse to return to work under the conditions Imposed by the maniifaeliiers. The manufacturers heard of this flr'-t last Saturday afternoon when National Orgaiil&er (i. R. French finally admit ted, when asked to send union men here that ho could not do so pending the referendum vote. From statements nf Mr. French nnd Mr. Prehlo all along the manufacturers have understood that the shops were open to all union men nnd that Mr. French himself would bring enough union men here to fill the shops at any time the ninnufact tiers wished them. Ho urged the manufac turers to give the former employes ev ery show to get back to wait a few days before hiring other men. The manufacturers held off until their slock of cigars had diminished consid erably and then asked Mr. French to bring some union men here to work. His reply greatly disconcerted the man 11 facturers. The Clgarmakers' union then deelded that Its members should go back tu work pending the referendum vote. All were ordered back except those who had formerly heen employed at John P. Kllfeather's, but who left on. strike about a month ago. These wero or dered to stny out. When the manu facturers' committee head the exception to tho general order Ihey declined to take back any of the men unless tho employes nt Kllfcatliers' returned to work. This was refused. This morning memhers of the Cigar mnkers' union will return to the shops preparatory to taking up work again, but will be refused by tho manufac turers After that neither side hopes for a settlement until the matter has been derided upon by referendum voto of tho entlra International organiza tion. Last week the manufacturers drew up s letter, published In this paper which ordered the men to return to tbe Bhops for work Monday or remove their clothes and their toolg to make room for ww men. After this letter hail been sent the manufacturers found that they could net hire union men until the trou ble Is settled, and so to-day if the men do not oofne and take their tools away the former plan of putting tho prop erty of tho employes on tho sidewalk will not be followed. Tho manufacturers hold a meeting yesterday morning In John P. Kllfeath er's otllco and unanimously decided to stand back of everything tho associa tion's commltteo has done.
