Judges Archbald and Gunster Listen to Argu
ments oa Two Ap;i:dls.
THE QUESTION OF CONSTRUCTION
Attorney Scrasg Says That the Act
of 1802 Considered with Its Supple
ment ol 1333 Does Not Permit Poor
Directors to Give Out Door Relief.
Attorney Davis Argues to the Con
trary Cases Continued and Settled.
iBefori Judges Archbald and GunsUr
yesterday arguments were heard on
the appeal of the Scranton Po r dis
trict from the report of Attorney Rloh
in llol .'Hie. the auditor appointed hy
the court to report finding! of law and
facta with retard to the question of
outdoor relief, and on the appeal of the
directors of the Scrunton Poor district
from the report uf the auditors of the
lislrict. Jadt Klwtirds formerly
acted iu attorney for the directors anil
therefore did DM sit on the bench dur
iux the argument of the case.
Judi;e Archbald said that when he
Waj praoticiog at the bar he was em
ployed to urgue one phase of the case
as at prtWDt raised, au 1 felt some deli
cacy about now listening to argument
on it and pissing up m tlitae satus
poiuts iu liisjit lici.il capacity.
The object of the litigation is to let
tie the troublesome tjusstion of
whether or not the directors of this
poor district have the right to graut
out door relief.
how utt: qvMUlM was RflfttD
Some time ago Mrs. Swan at a meet
ing of the poor board asked for a lettal
opinion from John F. Scragg, attorney
of the board, on the question of out
door relief. H decided they had no
i power to grant out door relief aud in
conformity with thai oplakttD thedis
trict auditors turohar;ed the directors
with tuouey paid out for out door relief.
Au appeal was taken from, the action
of the auditors aud the uourt appoiuted
Attorney llolgate to pass upon the law
I and the facts involved aud report to
I His report was to the ett'sct that the
board had the right to graut out door
I relief after the apnltcatiou had been
I approved by two magistrates. From
' this report the district appealed and
both of these tppjatt cams up yester
, day in argument court.
.Mr. Scrag maintained that ths act
i of 1889, which is a special one govern
ing this district, must be construed as
a whole in connection with tlie sup
plemental net of ISiJj. If this is done
he argues that outdoor relief is not allowable.
qPESTlON uf JtrJUBMONOS.
He also questioned the jurisdiction
of this court to pass upon the matter as
the act of 1863 sp?cities that all appeals
, must be taken to the court of common
pleas of Luxe roe county. He quoted
anopiniou of Jndge Handley, when
president judge of this county, to sus
tain bis position on the question of
Attorney Usvis, in beginning his ar
gument, said there could be no doubt
' that the poor directors always had
ti:e power to grant out door relief. To
interpret the act a not giving such
power would make it necessary to go
outside of all canons of construction
that he ever heard of. The poor laws,
lie said, were not framed to put persons
I iu almshouses, nut to mike them self
, supporting. I 'nder Section 15 of the
' act of 1863, he held that the board has
j the power to give outdoor relief in two
(different ways, and it is only by a
strained construction and patting Ssc
' lions 8 and 13 tiarether by mans of the
I supplement of 1S03 that a contrary con
1 struction can be arrived at.
POWER OF TflE CODKT.
Mr. Davis sai 1 that if our courts
...... tlia r.owr of annnintino' rioor
directors which they have exercised for
several years, they certainly have the
power to pass upon au appnal arising
from their official acts. than care
fully reviewed the act of ISoi and its
supplement and qnoted a number of
authorities to eustain the interpreta
tion which be places on the law.

The attorney general's answer was
received by Mr. Powell yesterday. He
says that it Is the duty ot the county

tn 1 1 and Philsdelphis, to issue a
tbeatrlotl license on piyiuint of a feo
of 150 which sum shall be paid to the
state for sinking fund purposes

"But no activo duties in the way of
ferreting out al tempted presumable or
actual violations of these laws are im

tin uss the attorney general. "A fail

license makes the person giving the
performance liable to indictment and
upon conviction thereof to forfeiture,

be paid into the treasury of the county.
A violation of the set is a misde

amenable to a criminal prosecution.
