Councilman Crowe Bans the Eagine While Dr. Battery Hnstleg For Help. The men employed at the city electric light works became un- subordinate this morning when Superintendent Warner took charge and they refused to either work or give any information to new men unless reemployed for a year. When Mr. Warner went to the works this morning he found but one man present—John Ray, a laborer. The linemen, the trimmers, the engineers and the firemen had all disappeared, and it looked for ; a time as though light making would have to be temporarily suspended. Mr. Warjer warned the members ol tbe electric light committee of the council ol the situation and "&\l of them responded promptly. Councilman Crowe, being an old engineer, took cnarge of the engine, while Dr. Battery and Mr. Dykeman hustled for helpers. Nathaniel Costenborder, who was former superintendent ol' the works, tendered his services and by noon matters were BO adjusted that light prospects are not so dark as they were this morning. Men were sent out to find the trimmers and linemen. They wers found but, as told to the Pharos, they refused to either surrender city property, supposed to be in their possession, or to give any information concerning the location of lights or where"eTectrTc"light material could be found.

Of course all these insubordinate subordinates will be summarily bounced and their pay will stop in- stanter. They have not only shown themselves disloyal to the city that has given them employment, but unworthy to hold a public position anywhere. It is understood that the two night men—Paul Balzell end Jerry Haskett—were not connected with the rebellion, but will appear tonight to assume their duties. It is feared that some injury may be done tbe works and the precaution has been tak^n of hiring a detective to keep watch, for a time. It is reported that an effort was made to entice the men in the. fice department to follow the lead of the men employed in tbe electric light department, but without success. Men whose names have baen attached to the city pay rolls for a long time should not labor under the delusion that they are indispensible but should yield cheerfully to their successors. DESERVED PROMOTION. enry Vo«, an Old Panhandle Railroad Employe, K*de Foreman »f the Big Four Round House at BellefoDBtainr, Ohio—Railroad News. Henry VOBB, jr., an old Logans- jurt boy, who left here a year or so go to take a position in the Big sr railroad shops at Lafayette, was ecently placed in charge of the oundhouse of tbe company at Belle- ountaine, O.

His wife is with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Fred Heppe, In this city, and ill remain until he secures a sult- ble residence at Bellefountalne, Mr. Vuss is a son of Henry Voss, extou of Mt. Hope cemetery. RAILROAD NEWS. W. A. Sample, traveling auditor of he Panhandle, was in the city yea- erday. A bad wreck occurred last Sunday n the C., A. & C. road near Columus, Ohio. Six excursion cars weie brown down an embankment and a umbar of passengers injured. A. M. Tower, the well Known ma- hlnist in the Pittsburg shops, has nnounced himself as a candidate for position on the advisory board of he Pennsylvania Voluntary Relief ssoclatlon. D Painters and decorators are at work on the interior of the Panhan-' le station and office building.Train- master May has been "driven from ome," but is not kicking, for he ays extra»fine work is beUg done in da office. In 1885 the fastest train service etween Cleveland and Pittsburg, 35 miles, was five hours. Now both he Pennsylvania and the Pittsburg nd Lake Erie are making the run in hree and one-half hours, and the 'ennsylvenia has under consideration making it in three hours when 1m- jrovements now in progress are com- ileted. The sleeping car companies are onaewhat uneasy over a bill intro- uced in congress prohibiting, under a penalty of tlOO, sleeping car com- lanies from letting down or making ip the upper bed or berth when the ower one in the same section is oc- ,upied, unless the upper berth has been sold and a passenger Is in eadiness to occupy fit. All of the western roads have de- jided that they will charge 1 cent per mile for the transportation of troops o and frojQ the front. Only one 'oad is standing out against therate. This is the Colorado Midland, and it ays that the state laws of Colorado prevent it from making a 1 cent ate. It has not, however, informed any of the other roads that it intends io make a higher rate than 1 cent. There is a vacant chair in Superintendent Walton's office. It was filled by George Cann, who has succeeded AT. .Rogers as clerk of the city elec- ___e light department. George was one of the most popular members of . _3 Panhandle office force, and the boys regret thai he will no longer be •one of them." The public may rest assured that the business of the elec- irlc light office will be conducted in a systematic and a thoroughly up-to- date manner. CHICAGO MAKKETS.
