THE PITTSBUKG- DJSPATCH WEDNESDAY, -FEBEUAET 6;- 1889.-.
Allegheny Delighted at Being Made a
Legal Third-Class Town.
THE SuTEEME COURT'S BIG FLOP.
Delinquent Tax Collector Greer Saja He's
THE TEEASDEEE AND OTHEES HAPPI
At Philadelphia the Supreme Court yes
terday reversed its own judgment as en
tered in the case of the city of Beading
versus Savage. The question involved -was
the validity of the municipal act of May 23,
1874. The act authorizes cities of the third
class to accept the benefits of its provisions
for regulating their municipal affairs, and
defines in various -ways the p'owers and du
ties of their officers aud the methods of col
Judge Ermentrout, in Berks county, de
cided that this act, under which the city of
Heading had administered its affairs for 14
years, was unconitutional and void. "When
the case was argued on appeal in April,
1888, this judgment was affirmed by
Supreme Court. The City Solicitor of
Heading applied for a reargnment The
Judges decided to file an opinion at once, so
as to allow cities like Allegheny, Heading
aud others to know as to where they stand
in reference to the act of 1874. Yesterday
the Court made the following order:
In view of the importance of an earl y decision
of this case we liave concluded to enter judgment
in advance of the opinion, which will be filed
later by Mr. Justice Green. The judgment
heretofore entered in this case is vacated, the
order of court below striking off the lien and
quashing the writ of scire actas, and all pro
ceedings thereon are reversed and set aside;
the lien and all proceedings thereon are rein
stated "and a procedendo awarded.
This decision practically leaves the city
of Allegheny under the same system of gov
ernment she has enjoyed for the last 18
years. The election of all citv officers, their
mode of election and the ratio of repre
sentation in both branches of Councils will
remain as heretofore.
'0 FURTHER MUDDLE.
There is now no necessity for new legisla
tion governing cities of the third class, the
act of 1874 being sufficient for their pur
poses. The result of the decision is that the
act of 1874 will stand. If there is no new
legislation, then the charter and laws of the
city of Alleghenv, passed prior to 1874, re
main in force, and Allegheny stands in the
position which she took prior to the act of
18S7. The act of 1887, which had had been
held to be unconstitutional, gave to Alle
gheny City the office of Collector of Delin
quent Taxes and the Board of Assessors,
and certain provisions in relation to the
classification of property and collection of
taxes. These offices and provisions referred
to are possibly wiped out by the decision as
to the act of 1887. It may be necessary to
procure from this Legislature a general "law
covering thee points.
A general smile of approbation over
spread faces of the majority of Allegheny's
City Hall officials yesterday afternoon, on
receipt of the news of the action of the
Supreifte Court reversing its decision and
now making the act of 1874 constitutional.
When shown the first reports of the new
phase in the charter muddle by a DlSFATCH
reporter. Delinquent Tax Collector Samuel
Greer engaged in the following interview:
That's all right. It's jnst what every one
wants. We now stand just where we did before,
and I am sure that all the others around the
hall will tell you the same thing. The city will
now come under the act of 1870, and oerything
will inoTe along as before"
"Hut, Mr. Greer, how will it affect you?" said
the reporter, showing the statement in the
evening paner. from ex -Solicitor Rodgers, that,
asAllcghcn stands in the position in which she
took prior to the act of 1SS (which has been
held to be unconstitutional, and under which
the offices of Delinquent Tax Collector, tho
Board of Assessors and
in relation to the classification of property and
collection of taxes were given these offices, and
provisions w ere doubtless wiped out by the de
cision as to the act of lsS7, and that it will be
necessary to procure from the Legislature a
general law covering these points in order to
retain the offices provisions.
Collector Greer was eaual to the occasion.
and, rushing to the Controller's office, pro
cured a copy of the charter of 1870, and
flashed up the following section (No. 14),
bearing on the subject:
Section 14 Tl.e other officers of said city, to
be elected bv Councils, consist of a Treasurer,
Controller, Engineer, Solicitor, Superintendent
of Water Works and such other officers as
Councils may from time to time deem neces
sary. Said Mr. Greer, pointing to the last part
of the section: "It will all be under the
control of Councils, and the office will have
to be established by ordinance, although it
may be possible some legislation may have
to be enacted in regard to the control of the
City Treasurer David McFerren said:
It's inst what we want; the city isn't ready
yet lor the second class and they ill now have
time to study the matter. The present decision
gives us power to go on legally with our pres
ent Government, which, I think, will be satis
factory to all. The national census of next
year will undoubtedly give us 100.000 popula
tion, and it may be that we will then liai o to
change our code, and we will then know better
what we do want.
All others seen by the reporter expressed
about the same opinion of general satisfac
tion that the light was clearer to a solution
of the muddle which has engrossed the
minds of all citizens since its inception.

A Biff Sacrifice.
For Thursday we shall offer the most
tempting inducements to purchasers of high
class clothing that we have ev cr announced
during our whole business career. We have
on hand about 60 French montagnac
overcoats, all sizes, lined with Cutter's
finest quilted satin, trimmed in the most
expensne manner high class tailoring can
devise, and manufactured to sell for not
less than 50. Our price on Thursday for
them will be $20. An accurate idea of the
value of these garments can be formed from
the fact that a yard of the raw material in
these coats cost between SJ10 and ?12. We
have placed these overcoats on one counter
for jour inspection, and advertised them a
iav in advance, as our imported French
montagnac overcoats, selling on Thursday
for the sacrificing price ot 20. None sold

A Portion of tho Argument In FtiTor of
Qunablpe tho Starr Indictment la the
BUI an Irregular One t Other Court
The argument to quash the indictment in
the case of the Commonwealth vs A. B.
Starr, Superintendent of the Ft "Wayne
Railroad, was only partially heard before
Judges Slagle and Collier in the Criminal
Court yesterday afternoon.
When K. H. Johnston, Esq., the attor
ney for the defendant, had spoken for a
short time Judge Collier complained that
the room was too cold, and adjourned the ar
gument until to-day.
Mr. Johnston, as far as he went, argued that
the four counts should bo quashed, because
two distinct offenses are charged in each one of
them. This, Attorney Clarence Burleigh, for
the Commonwealth, admitted, and was willing
to amend the indictment by striking out the
name of John Culp in the four counts. Mr.
Johnston cited a number of cases to prove that
on this ground the indictment should be
He claimed farther that the indictment
avers that the train was running at an illegal
rate of speed, thereby violating a city ordi
nance. Mr. Johnston held that in such a case
the substance of the ordinance, at least, should
be given, and the speed of tho train as nearly
as possible should be determined to show that
it was illegal. An indictment must state facts,
not conclusions of law. It should state the of
fense with certainty, else no sentence should be
In addition the indictment should set forth
the personal duty of the defendant, which Mr.
Johnston claimed the four counts do not. The
conclusion of his argument and the other side
will be heard to-day.
SEATED BY THE COURT.
Colonel Moore Assails) Wlshnrt and Porter
Daring a Trial.
The case against W. F. Schade, a Butler street
newsdealer, charged with selling the .Police
Gazette, was taken up in the Criminal Court
before J udge Collier yesterday. A copy of the
paper was produced, and selections'were read
to the jury. H. A. Goddard, a Law and Order
League detectiVe, testified that he had bought
the paper from Schade. J. C. Carlisle, a con
stable, testified to serving the process. Captain
Alexander Wishart testified to seeing the paper
exposed at Schade's store. W. D. Moore, one
of the attorneys for the defense, questioned
the witness on his manner of business as agent
for the Law and Oruer League, and on his
record in the army. When Captain Wishart
admitted that he had been dismissed from the
service, Mr. Moore wanted to stop; but the
Captain managed to say that his dismissal was
unjust, and that he was proud of his record as
Later Mr. Moore and District Attorney Por
ter had a dispute over the selling of the paper,
the question being if Schade personallv sold it.
The dispute was ended by the Court telling Mr.
Moore to take his seat.
In his argument Mr. Moore held that the pic
tures were no more immoral than can be seen
at any theater. He held that the publication
of facts was not illegal, and the prosecution
must prove obscenity and falseness to prohibit
tho sale. Captain Wishart came in for a very
severe and scathing denunciation.
District Attorney Porter closed tho case with
a speech in which he claimed that tho paper
was obscene and indecent. The jury will be
charged this morning.
