Smith and William d. Gardner were nominated for Gas trustees in the caucus of the Republican members of common Council yesterday afternoon. Jacob Crouse was Defeated. The vote stood Gardner i Smith 55 Crouse 33, and Tho Victory rested with the Mcmanes leads faction As opposed to Lane Rowan and Disston. Tho first named wanted Smith and Tho second Crouse or. Gardner had no strength of his own As a factional partisan and Yot to polled Tho highest vote of All. As previously stated it did not make any particular difference in Tho composition of Tho Trust who won As Romanos by the nomination of Henry Glass in Tho select Council caucus had gained the control of that organization. Still Romanes and Lane wore bound to Havo their fight win or lose and Tho Linos were drawn upon Smith Aud Crouse. Mcmanes by espousing the candidacy of Smith whether from necessity or Choie brought to his support a number of councilmen who had voted for Smith before and saw no reason Why to should not be re elected. Smith therefore through Tho Mcm Imos leads influence and his personal strength was enabled to gather enough votes to insure his own election. Air Manes picks up Gardner. It was then that the Gas Trust chieftain followed up his first shrewd move in taking Smith by throwing his forces to Gardner As second Man. Or. Gardner like Smith had a following of his own but in a lesser degree and Mcmanes picking that Upland adding his own direct following to it us coded in his scheme of defeating the out and out Lane candidate. Lane started with an attempt to get into Tho Trust with an outsider who had no patronage of Bis disposal against two candidates who Scro already in. Ile naturally favored Gardner rather than Smith and delivered Sov Cuteon votes to him which with Tho Mcmanes vote brought or. Gardner to Tho top although he sacrificed his own candidate by so doing. After the caucus or. Oard nor a closest friends wore thankful to Tho Lane contingent and accepted Tho Mcmanes help with tile understanding that their candidate was supported by Thorn Boca Uso to was the Eho Ico Between two evils. So far As Tho struggle Between Smith and Crouse is concerned it was a clean Cut Victory for Smith without regard to what circumstances brought it about and Tho Mcmanes faction Scro highly elated Over the result. Hamilton Disston was on Tho Crouso Side but left his friends to decide As Between Smith and Gardner. By that course to actually did Crouso More harm than Good and shares with Lane Tho pain of defeat. Manes feeling for Disston. Tho cry among Tho Mcmanes people after the caucus was that the a old Many a had secured revenge upon Disston for not turning in for Lawrence in Tho last City treasurer convention and they promised that Tho end was not Yot. Thoro Are Somo More caucuses to to held and it is claimed that Disston candidates will not to taken in under Tho Mcmanes umbrella in the future. Contrary to general expectation the caucus of yesterday was a vory Tamo affair. Thomas m. Thompson Romanes was called to the chair without opposition and Hie speech making in placing tile candidates in nomination was do void of personalities. Smith was nominated by or. Williams Gardner by or. Maloney and Crouse by or. Upperman. Or.

Everybody voted to return Robert Laughlin As a manager of Tho House of correction after the big work of Tho Day was Over.

A Quot Tho workingmen of Philadelphia who embrace a Largo majority of Tho owners or renters of our houses on which Tho whole City tax Falls Tiro very seriously and generally discussing Tho necessity of improved water and sewers for Philadelphia. A number of representative Mon of our various Industrial organizations Havo been interviewed by the times on the subject and they wore All found fully informed and alive to Tho Jii estion. A a yes a said Stephen a. Dorm sex division Secretary knights of , yesterday a Tho workingmen of Tho City Are More than grateful to the times for its Earnest and plucky discussion of tile wrongs the workingmen suffer by Tho impure and inadequate Supply of water we receive and the poisonous sower gases which we cannot keep out of our Homes. I know of no families of Fortune or even of fairly Good circumstances that drink the filthy water supplied by Tho City. Thoy can afford to buy pure water or to buy ice and Molt it or to Boll Tho water and Drain it. Through costly alters but Tho workingmen can to afford it and they must drink mid Cook with the poisoned water from tire City pipes. And water is a necessity As All families even to Tho poorest must a a it and it is in every House. Gas is a luxury we can do without it we can got Botter Aud cheaper Light from Oil but water we must have and we Are compelled to accept and Usa what Rte City supplies Yvo Are also Tho chief sufferers from Quot Tho deadly sower Gas As we have no moans of protecting our families from it As the Rich have. Our houses Are Small our water closets Baths and stationary washstand which Are common in modern cheap houses Are in immediate connection with our sleeping rooms and we inhale Tho Gas and our children inhale it because Thoro is no Ostapo from it. Costly closet fixtures and distance from sleeping rooms protect Tho larger houses of Tho families of Fortune and their ventilation is much better than we eau have. Tho More wealthy people can to some extent protect themselves even from our offensive of and pestilential Al Sowers but Tho workingmen have no such Protection. Workingmen discussing the question. A a it should be remembered that Tho workingmen half Tho whole City taxes collected from our people As it All comes from Tho houses of Tho Puoplo Aud Tho residents Tho tax whether they Are owners or tenants. We lava paid enough taxes to have Tho Best water and sewers but the Money has been wasted and now with our increasing population our water Supply becomes More impure and inadequate and our sewers More offensive and unhealthy Boca Uso they arc insufficient to carry off Tiro sewage. Rut the workingmen Are now discussing the question in every organized association and in every social meeting and they will make themselves Felt in the matter As soon As they got an Opportunity. To Are taxed More for the support of Tho victims of taverns and saloons than would give us pure und plenty of water and we Are not Only tired of it but we will act id aet unitedly to Force the City to give us pure water and healthy Sowers. Lot the times continue its Good fight Tho workingmen will heartily support it and its Charles Iier Siskro Secretary of the tailors Union German Branch 20c s. Juniper Street a a i done to think Tho water Supply is sufficient. Indeed it is very deficient. I had a House out at Twenty first Aud Arch streets Aud i get Tho water to Tho first Story of it. Thoro Wasny to enough pressure for that. And you will find that Iii a measure this 1� pretty near the Case with All Otylior buildings throughout the populous Section of Tho City. And for purposes i believe firmly that Tho water Supply is altogether insufficient. I have in mind a shoo firm on Arch Street near whore i used to reside that got any water at All sometimes. If a fire should break out in a House like that it would be most dangerous i should think. Tho Supply of water hero is not what it is cracked up to to. There a no mistake about that. I guess you will find that everybody else who knows anything at All about these things has the same opinion. I Imp on to referred to the Muddy condition of our water. But really it is very Seldom that we get Clear water Here at our establishment. It is nearly always immediate action necessary. James a. Wright organizer of the knights of labor said a a Home Steps should be taken to give the manufacturers an adequate Supply of water. At present in Many of the factories the water will reach Only to Tho second stories and pumping to Tho upper stories is a heavy expense a in fact an extra tax that has to to borne eventually by Tiro mechanics. If sufficient water were furnished in All parts of the Mills the Money now needlessly expended could to utilized in a manner beneficial both to employer and employee. I think that Tho plan As published in an interview with the times of getting Waler from Tho upper Delaware and bringing it hero by pipe lines is a Good our. To be effective however higher reservoirs in the pity should be built so that water could be forced higher than at present. This is a subject in which everyone has an interest and one that should to pursued until we get a larger and better Supply of John Mcardle Secretary of the horseshoes Union no. 6, residing at 1226 Catherine Street a a my opinion about Tho City water Supply is the same As everybody Oison a and that is that the Supply is very insufficient in this neighbourhood. Tho Wator hero is just about Tho same of it is everywhere else. We can got it downstairs some times but can to get it upstairs. Of course around in this neighbourhood it is a trifle better now than it was a few years ago but still Thoro in t a sufficient Force of water on saturdays. There is no Wator upstairs for Tho Bath rooms at All. I think there ought to to some Groat improvement in Tho water Supply soon. There is room for very Groat improvements and Thoy ought to to made As soon As possible. You know Thoro is a great use of Wator on saturdays wednesdays and mondays. Then Tho Force of the Wator is very weak about Here. It wont run into Tho second stories at All. Of course it will flow a Little sometimes but it comes so very slow that it takes a Groat while to got a Little water. We can carry water upstairs in a pail quicker than we can get it from tile spigots upstairs and sometimes this necessarily puts us to a Groat Doal of a Timur Mcginn a Street paving contractor and originator of Tho Savior a a protective Union residing at 1235 Christian Street a hero where i live there is Only one connection with Tho Maiu Pijie for four houses. I get a pretty Good Supply when my hydrant is running but the other four Lier badly from Tho Luck of water. When my hydrant i3 kept running for any length of time the neighbors have to Enli Over and get it stopped. It is evident then that there int Orough pressure on the pipes for when one party Here has a Good flow of Wator the others have to Tell him to Stop that hydrant in Ordor for Tirom to get a drop of water at All and this you Soo is very vexatious. And what Wator we do get is often very Muddy and impure. After every Little Shower of rain the water becomes Muddy inside of ten hours Overy time. I have worked up along the manufacturing districts of the City up along Manayunk Aud the Falls of Buguy Kili. And have seen impurities flow into the River there that make one sick to think of. It is shocking that this thing should be allowed. It certainly would be a great improvement if we could get our water from some other source which would to impurities flowing in the River. Gideon labor a prominent member of Tiro of locomotive engineers residing at 1714 Christian Street a a the water Supply in this City Isnit sufficient by a Tong splice Aud a we rectally so for manufacturers. We private families Horn Are Short of water Ivory season. We Daren to oven Wash our pavements As we would Liko on account of the Scarcity of the water. Tho Railroad companies pump their own water now but if Thoy were to use Tho Tutor of tile City Shat would make our allowance still my firm opinion is thai our water Supply ought to in increased by Alt possible Means and we ought co have a better Quality of water too. We Are now drinking the filth and dirt of All Tiro manufactories along the Hohul kill and we also got All Tho Aith rant comes from to Houspi burbs of Tho City above Heror it course the water Pantie itself to a certain extent but still Thoro is no doubt thut it Yot contains a great portion of that poisonous stuff. A a in the first place there is a great a Leat of acid of diff rant kinds finds its Way into the water. Up in tile Anthracite mining Region in Schuyl til county where i Usoz i to work i remember that the Mineral Waters issuing from the mines used to kill All the fish in the streams there and these streams ail empty into the water we now drink. And those minerals and chemicals used at the manufactories Abov the City we somewhat similar in their nature Aud effects to Tho a coming from the mines. Now there is a great Deul of chemical matter in those colouring material that is rank Poison and it ail comes Down to us Iii some shape or Oiler perhaps Only a Little finer and More ill Tod thou when it Ilo Wisl in. As it is i think the Only reason Why we Don t have a dreadful epidemic of some kind is that the City in other respects is so remarkably know thyself by Reading the a a science Al ufos Tbs Best Iii dual work.
