TO SAVE THE GAS WORKS Continued From First Page. scheme of the "eminent respectables." Invitations were sent to nearly every bicycle club in the city to have members attend the gathering at the Temple. ; They ran as follows: Attention Wheelmen! Tou are Invited to Attend a Meeting' To Be Held On Wednesday .Evening.Oct. 13, 1897, at Odd Fellows' Temple, To Prepare for a Street Parade in Opposition to . . Leasing the Gas "Works. It is desired that a representative of each Bicycle Club in Philadelphia be present, but all wheelmen are invited. By request of the Executive Committee of the Patriotic League of America- It has been suggested and the idea Is likely to. be carried out, that on the evening of the demonstration, wagons drawn by double teams of horses and accompanied by bands of music shall be started from South-wark, the southeast section, Kensington, Germantown, the Thirty-sixth ward, or southwest territory. West Philadelphia and Manayunk. Transparencies will be carried inviting all citi2ens, who are opposed to the gas ' " works outrage, to evidence their disapproval of the same by joining in . the . procession. One thought is to .- liave all the paraders meet at Broad " and Columbia avenue and, after for mation, to march down Broad street to South, countermarch to Chestnut, thence to Ninth, to Market.and thence westward to the court yard of the City. Hall, . where speakers .will address the assembly. - - - These plans -will be submitted at to-night's meeting and may be adopted as they stand or changed accord- lng to the wishes of those present. . There are over 2o0() wheelmen in . Philadelphia, and a. large . proportion --of this number should -be in line. -All " the bands, red fire and other neees- sary accompaniments are to be sup-'t plied by the committee of the Patriotic , ". League' so that ho expense will " be . borne., by those who take part in the demonstration. , .... IAXK.TO THE SCHOOL. HOUSE. -In connection-with the great move- ment to save the gas works, the Pa- trrotic League has issued an address which should command general public ' attention, it says: " " It has been estimated that from twenty millions to thirty millions of dollars , will be absolutely given away by the w granting of the proposed lease. Such action cannot fail to affect all the peo- pie, when you realize that the city t'o- day is sorely in need of more school , houses to accommodate thousands of r. children who are being deprived of edu- cation by being afforded only half time .. at school or altogether excluded. If the Compulsory Education bill should be. enforced there is not sufficient room to supply anything like the demand that , would .have to be made for additional - school houses.

Just now this same $5.00 Snellenburg Clothing is f marked at $3.50. Come, ye clever parents and W prove it. Prove it, to the contentment of all parties concerned.

Suits As to double required in this direction could be provided if the ordinance now pending in Councils Committee on Finance and Gas is defeated. Under these conditions it rests with the citizens of Philadelphia to say if this ordinance is to pass. It rests with them to prevent extravagant expenditure of public moneys in any form, and it becomes their duty to prevent corporate power from discharging workmen that such corporation or individuals may accumulate for their own private uses the money which should go to tlte City Treasury. THE DUTY OF ALL CITIZENS. To this end the Patriotic League of America, which is organized solely for the purpose of preventing such evils, requests all citizens to attend the meeting to be held on Wednesday evening, October 13, at the Odd Fellows' Temple, there to perfect arrangements for a great street parade in protest against the passage of the gas works lease. It is desired that one or more representatives from every division in each ward shall be present. Do not imagine that someone else will represent you, but come yourself. There are 17(X employes in the gas works. They may not dare to ta"ke part in any opposition to the gigantic scheme now on foot. This coercion should arouse all wage earners to take part in the proceedings of tomorrow night. The loss to the municipality by the proposed steal would be enormous and should be met with steadfast resistance by every patriotic organization or citizen who has the interest of thp school children at heart. Each labor organization and each patriotic body should be represented by one or more members at the meeting to-morrow night. Request -Is made that the managers of any band of music, not engaged for Saturday, October 1(5, shall send written proposal of charges for parading on that night, to either the office of the Protective League of America, No. 1405 Filbert street, to-day, or to the meeting at Odd Fellows' Temple tonight. MORE TAX PAYERS AROUSED A Blgr Meeting: to Be Held I p-Town To-morrow Aisbt. Closely following the Wednesday night meeting there will be a big gathering of taxpayers to-morrow evening at the Second Regiment Armory, Broad street and Susquehanna avenue. Senator Penrose is expected to be present and other well-known Citizens will explain what would result from the lease of the Gas Works. The Twenty-eighth Ward Anti-Combine League will take a prominent part in the meeting. THE ACADEMY MEETING How Tickets of AdnilNsion May Be Obtained -Enmlnent Speakers. The Citizens' Municipal Association has the arrangement for the mass meeting at the Academy of Music next Friday night well in hand. Among the distinguished speakers will be Hon. Wayne MacVeigh and Hon. William Potter, both of whom have represented the United States Government as Ministers to Italy; Edwin S. Stuart, ex-Mayor of the city, and Peter Boyd, who made such a gallant fight in behalf of the people before Mr. Clay's sub-committee. Other prominent citizens will also deliver addresses, but some of those who have been invited do not wish their names announced until they are positive that they can be present. Tickets of admission to the Academy can be obtained upon application to Agent T. B. M. Addis, at the headquarters of the Citizens Municipal As sociation, in the Heed Building, No. 1215 Filbert street. Organized bodies or individuals who may Joe unable to obtain them by calling will be supplied by mail by sending their address to Mr. Addis. '"'KINSEY STILL DELIBERATES Both the Snh and the General Committees to Meet To-day. There are some anxious faces about City Hall these days and many rumors bearing upon the result of the Gas Works fight. City Solicitor Kinsey is still engaged In. preparing his opinion, and though Mr. . Ciay and Mr. Seeds both issued calls yesterday for meetings of their committees this afternoon, they will not receive a report from the city's law officer. It was stated positively by one of the Solicitor's assistants yesterday . that the all Important document would not be ready to-day. For what purpose, therefore, the subcommittee and the Joint Committee on Finance and Gas will assemble, the one at 2 P M the other at 2.30, cannot be made clear. Mr. Clay's call says his committee "will meet in Room 496, City Hall, to consider the matter tof leasing the Philadelphia Gas Works." Invitations to be present, have been sent to the attorneys .representing: the various syn HE jnnit aY.t $3.50 ! Other Bargains it Covert Oversacks $6.00 to $15.00.

One of the rumors is that the Ridg-way people will present a new proposition Involving the payment to the city of a vast sum of money. Captain W. W. Ker, who has been- acting for capitalists who are Organized as the Consolidated Gas Company, is prepared to give the names of those he represents to-day if the committee so desires. STUART'S STRONG WORDS The Ei-Maror Snr Some-Pertinent Thins Resrardlnsr the Lease. t VJ Ex-Mayor Edwin S. Stuart last night expressed himself in a vigorous and conclusive manner Regarding the pending proposition to. lease the gas. works. He evinced a disinclination to talk at first on the ground that his views , upon the matter were known, but- when pressed for his views u"pdh the general proposition he talkeO freely and with an evident knowledge upon the subjeet. - He said: -T am now and always have been emphatically opposed to the sale or the lease of the Philadelphia Gas Works. The present offer is but a repetition of that made to the city about ten years ago, after an ordinance to sell the works outright for ten millions of dollars, I think, had been defeated in Councils. The same Interests that desire the property now afterward offered to lease the plant for a period of twenty-five years. According to their estimate at that time only three millions of dollars- were required to put the works in first-class condition. They reserved the righ to charge the taxpayers $1.50 per thousand for gas. . "Now, after the city has spent over two millions and a quarter of dollars in permanent improvements, they come to the front again and say that it will require five millions of dollars to put the plant in first-class order. With it they ask the right to bind us to a certain price for gas. Now this is a fact that should be firmly established in the minds of the people and will bear repetition. Ten years . ago they wanted to bind the public to ?l.i0 gas for twenty-five years. Now they, want to bind the people to a certain priced gas for thirty years. It is within the range of possibility and even probability that the city If it controls the plant may be able to furnish it at a much lower rate. Boston and Chicago are even now agitating the question of lower priced gas. The fact that this municipality has reduced the price from $1.50 to $1.0O per thousand feet since the original proposition to sell or lease was made is evidence of the fact that a still further reduction may be made in the future. "The city, through Councils, has said most positively within a year that we do not desire to sell or lease the works. Yet here is a corporation which prepares Its own lease, the terms fixed by its own officials, and the form prepared by their own counsel. The people know nothing of it until it is presented to Councils, although officers of the cor poration say they have given it the most careful investigation for some months, and in some instances for upwards of two years. Yet they ask the Councils to rush it through in a few weeks. This, after it has taken these able business men, according to their own statement, two years to consider it I do not think Councils will ever agree to such a monstrous proposition. I have never seen the people so strongly opposed to any movement as they are to this. I am Informed by good legal authority that the hew charter gives us no right to make such a lease unless the Legislature so amends the city charter. If we were certain we had the right, and the city desired to lease the Cost new $750. Good order. Taken in exchange for the LESTER Piano. Send for list of bargains and special plans of payment. F. A. NORTH & CO. ch'Jtaui " PIANOS RENTED. ' " works we" should so Inform the cap! talists Of the county and ask them; tabids, and pass an ordinance asking tft proper officials to give all the inform tion necessary .to enable them allf?H know just what we offer for sale. I be lieve we would get an offer ten-fold bet ter than any yet received. It is one o the. most valuable or franchises. The ab solute monopoly of supplying gas to city with such posisbilities as "Philadef phia would invite capital from all part of this country. "The gas works are the property o-the whole people, and should never b surrendered, either by sale or lease without their consent. We should, if this matter is to be further considered, asl the Legislature to enact such legis latlon as will enable the mater to b submitted to and voted on by th( people, who should only have the right to say whether or not they desired tc part with their property, and not give i away to a corporation who has takec two years to investigate a proposition that they ask us to settle in a few weeks, and then after several better offers have been made. Good business sense demands that the city should propose its own terms and then ask for bids. "This, it should be distinctly understood, should not be done until the people have declared in favor of a lease. Then, when the time for final action comes, the lease should be made to the bidder that has the greatest responsibility and that offers the most advantageous terms to the city." . HONORED BY FRIENDS Congressman LondeBslager Tendered a Reception at the Belleme. The Bellevue was last night the scene of a most notable gathering of men prominent in political affairs in -New jprsev. the Occasion being a dinner to Congressman Henry C. Loudenslager in honor of his return from an extended trip to the Pacific coast and Sandwich Islands. The spacious dining room pre sented a picturesque scene with the one hundred and fifty guests seated about tables amid decorations of pink roses and white carnations. Mr. Loudenslager reached home Monday, after having gone to San Francisco as the guest of a delegation of the citizens of West Virginia to attend the presentation of a silver service to the gunboat Wheeling. From San Francisco he sailed to Honolulu, and spent several weeks among the Sandwich Islands. He reached his Paulsboro home on Monday. The dinner tendered the representative from the First Congressional district of New Jersey was a pleasant surprise to Mr. Loudenslager, and its success was-due in no small manner to Franklin Smith, of this city, and Isaac Moffett, two of the popular Congressman's most intimate friends. The affair had attached to it much political significance by the presence of such men as Senator Sewell and ex-Congressman John Kean, of Elizabeth, who is a prominent candidate for the United States Senate, as invited guests, j Other prominent men present were: Wilbur F. Wakeman, United States Appraiser,. New York; Robert Hand, nom inee for State Senator of Cape May county, and Barker Gummera, of Trenton, clerk of Mercer, county, and Chairman of the evening. : . ; SWALLOW MASS MEETING - , t - The Prohibition Candidate for State " Treasurer" at the Academy.

Principal William D. Rorer, when seen at the school yesterday, said that after conferring with Miss Dalcour, the head of the French department, they had come to the conclusion to withdraw the book, so there might not be the slightest suspicion of objection. In the edition proposed, he added, that all -objectionable parts had been expurgated, so there was really no ground for objection, although to avoid criticism they would now substitute some other work.

MARKET HOUSE FLOODED Ponr Feet of Water Surges About the Stalls and Patrons Carried Out to -Safety With Difficulty. Special to The Inquirer. READING, Oct. 12. One of the severest storms that ever visited Reading struck the city shortly after :7 o'clock this morning, and for over two hours the rain came down in torrents. It was a veritable cloudburst, which did a vast amount of damage throughout the city. For a time all traffic was stopped. The sewera.were inadequate to the demands, and as a consequence cellars and houses were , flooded. Offi- V"" incaaui cnicnu cauvv Hill, i yn IIIUIICS ot rain ieii. On Nieholls street, from Oley to Robeson, where floods have been of frequent occurrence, there were the usual scenes of people being rescued from their houses in boats. The sew er at that point overflowed and the water backed up against the embank ment of the Philadelphia and Reading Railroad. In a short time the water was up to the second stories of some of the houses and the occupants of the dwellings were rescued from the win dows. The flre department was called out, and the firemen rendered valuable as sistance in rescuing women and children. Suits will be Instituted against the city, on account of the alleged de fective construction of the sewer. Damages will be claimed amounting to over S3O.0UO. There were remarkable scenes in the market house at Fifth and Button-wood streets. The rise of the water was so sudden that the market folks were unable to save anything, and It was a struggle with them to reach places of safety, as there was no telling when the building might be Under mined and give way. Fences and de bris were already floating around outside, the building in a few minutes be ing surrounded with water -to a depth of four feet. Men carried the women out of the market house. Some of the women fainted. A number lost their wraps and market baskets. The street car tracks at Fifth and Buttonwood streets were under water to the depth of several feet. Houses on Church and Little Oley street were rendered untenable. On Schuylkill avenue, near Button- wood, a number of houses were in dan ger of falling down and had to be prop ped. The large hosiery mill of the Isolde & Hurst company, one or tne biggest in -the country, was damaged. J. G. Leinbach & Co.'s woolen mill, on North Fourth street, was flooded for the first time since its erection. Great damage was done to the new sewer on North Eleventh street, for the construction of which $180,000 was expended. There were cave-ins at nu merous places. The sidewalks on North Eighth street sank at a number of points, and the sewer catoh basins were clogged with sand. The yards Of the Philadelphia and Reading Railroad, from Walnut street to Green, were flooded for the first time In years. The tracks were covered to the depth of two feet.
