Mr. Bums is quoted ns saying that
the Linden street bridge ordinance
is technically faulty in not stating
that tho bridge shall begin "ut tho

which were passed in 18113 and amoudol

Supreme Court Decided That His
Claim Against the County Is
Legal and Proper.
In the case of Patrick Corr against
the county of Lackawanna the supreme
court yesterday reversed the court of
this county.
Corr was one of the auditors Of tbe
borough of Dickson City and charged
the commissioners of this county JO
for receiving the nomination papers of
the borough, filling out certific ates of
watchers, arranging b illots, correcting
proof and distributing ballots prior to
the municipal election of February,
1S93. This bill the commissioners re
fused t pay, contending that they had
nothing to do with the comnensation
of borough auditors.
A case stated was then ngreod upon
to determine whether tbe county was
liable for the payment of the bill.
Judge Archbald held that while Corr
might have recovered from the county
the expenses of getting the ballots into
the hanils of the proper election officers,
such us cartage, expressuge, etc., and
any necessary traveling expanses by
rail, carriage or otherwise, if any such
expenses were iucnrrnl, bo could not
recover from the county anything like
n per diem compensation, and entered
judgment for the defendant with costs
An nppeal from this judm-nt was
taken to l lie sum-erne court which bus
reversed Judge Archbald and decided
tiiat the county must! pay Mr. Corr's
bill. This will mean considerable ad
ditional expense to the county in the
matter of conducting elections.

The important proceedings in the
petition of the Lackawanna Iron and

ary injunction permanent restraining
the Scranton Gas niiiT Water coinpnny
from shutting off the water supply
rom the mills and property ol the
plaiutiff were given the attention of
Judges GutiBter and Eiwaria in court
vtsterduy. The attorneys for tho
Lackawanna Iron and Steel company
were M. E. 01 instead, of HarriBburs:;

Joseph O'Brien, of this cily. For the
Gas and Water company Attorneys
Alfred Hand, nud I. II. Burns ap
peared. Mr. OlniBtead opened the case by be
inning bis argument to continue the
injunction. He reviewed the contracts
between tho plaintiff and defendant
companies and sn Emitted them iu ar
gument. In 1371 it was mutually
agreed betwcn the Scranton (ias and
Watet company nud tbe Lackawanna
Iron and Coal company that $1,800, the
price exacted by the Gas and Water
company for water service to the
plaintiff, would be promptly paid each
This contract remained in force until
1HN1, when h disruption occurred be
tween the officers of both companies,
which resulted in the water being
stopped from the mills and furuacos of
the steel company at n time when
heavy contracts for rails were being
Another bargain was tlun arrived at
and it was stipulated that from the
late of the contract the u is and Water
company agreed not to shut off the
water from tue plum till a properties in
case of dispute. The contract price
was the sum of $10,000 annually,
Three years iiuu the Lackawanna
Iron and Coal company and the Scran
ton Steel company merged into one
under the uew title, the Lackawanna
Iron and Steel company. All the rights
of contract with tho Gas and Water
company reverted to tbe new concern;
mil at the time or the purchase of the
South work, tho Uas and Water com
pany brought suit against the old com
puny for a little over :f(JO,000,und later a
it suit was instituted against the
Lackawanna Iron and Steel company
for $30,600. These suits were brought
for water bills for the consumption of
water by the steel company to which
it was not entitled, it is alleged, by any
provision iu the contract.
Tho Gas and Water oompany repeat
edly sent bills to the steel company for
these claims, and niter waiting a reas
onable time finally brought suit Chief
Euinneer Henry Wehrum, of the Lack
awanna Iron and Steel comnanv. as
serted to have had a conversation with
W. W. Scranton, president of the
Scranton Gas and Wuter company, in
which that gentleman threatened, un
less these bills were paid, that the sun
ply of water would be shut off from
the mills. Tbe threat alleged to have
been uttered by Mr. Scranton was re
sponsible for tbe bringing of this in
junction. Mr. Wehrum was called to
the stand to testify to tbe fact or Mr.
Scrauton's threat.
A legal battle nro?o at this point be
tween the attorneys relative to the ad
mission of oral testimony. The con
tention of tbe attorneys for the defend
ant was that all testimony should be
produced in aOidavit form. Mr. Wehrum
was allotted to testify and he stated
that he met Mr. Scranton on Lacka
wanna avenue on March 14 The lat
ter accosted tbe witness in this form:
"Well, Wehrum; how about the
water money?" Mr Wehrum said, "I
don't know anything about it." To
this Mr. Scranton replied, "Why don't
you tell your people to pay their bills.
I ilou t want to make any threats, but
you can tell Carl not to be surprised to

Mr. Wehrum communicated the re
marks to General Manager C. W. Mc-

of the properties owned by the com
puny and also testified that in 1830 the
Gas and Water company bad put in
claims for nmoilnls that the Steel com
pany did uot consider it entitled to,
consequently the bills were uot paid

ton was callei to the stand. He said
that the daily consumption of water
nae.1 at the mills nud properties of the
Lackawanna Iron and Steel company
averages 1.500.000 gallons, for which
the sum of 10,000 is annually paid to
ue water company, the price, Mr.
Scranton thought, was a rednood one.
The Sttel company was given the bens-
fit of special rates because of the enor
mous iiiuount of water used. Mr.
Scranton denied t'.iat he nndj any
threats to Air, Weiii'um.
What he s ild was that his compmy
considered it it right, which it hud the
privilege of reserving, that the water
unuld be shut of from customers who
lo not pay their bills, nud he aUo said
I hat the and Water company
claimed an a right the priviloge of
shutting oil water when it is uot used
according to contract. In the original
contract there was no provision, nor has
there been any luc uded since, of sup
plying water to the mule burns, or for
supply condensers, boshes and tuyers at
the mills.
Superintendent Robert Reeves wue
tho uext witness for tbe defense. He
said that be was present when the
conversation took place between Mr.
Scranton and Chief Lngineer Welirum.
there was no throat made by .Mr.
Scranton regarding the shutting off of
the water supply from. the mills of the
Lackawanna Iron und Steel company,
With the testimony of Mr, Rueves
the case ended and the attorneys on
both sides got togother and agreed to
dissolve the injuuetion, with the un
derstanding that the water supply will
not be Bhut off until the two suiis
brought by the Gus and Water com
pany are settled. These suits are ou
the list for the October term of com
mon pleas court, but it may be two
years before the cases nre called.
Thus euded one of the most impor
tant cases ever brought in the courts of
Lackawanna county.
Acoepted a Call from the Presbyterian
Chuioh of Jameitcwa, If. Y.
Rev. G. M. Colville, D. D who
eight years ago was pastor of the Simp
son Methodist Episcopal church of the
WeBt Side, bus left the Methodist fold
and become u Presbyterian, having ac
cepted a call from the First Presbv
teriun church of Jamestown, N. Y.
When Dr. Colville left this city he
went to Biughumton, N. Y., to accept
the pastorate of the Centenary Metho
dist Episcopal church, and has been
there ever since. Concerning his re
cent change the Binghamton Republi
can iavs:
It is stated that Dr. Colville .has had the
offer under consideration for some time,
Last Sunday ho preached in the Presby
terian church at Jamestown and was
siven the call, wbicb be decided to accept,
A few days ago he informed the presiding
elder or this district and the oiticinis or tue
Centenary church of his determination,
to leave tbe Methodist church and accept
this call. Who his successor will bo in the
Ceuteuary church is not yet known. The
auuouucemont to the officials was so sud
den and so unexpected that they have uo
one in view. Next Sunday the pulpit
will bo supplied by the kov. iiuaui Lai
gar, of Curuondafe.
It is understood that one of Dr. Col
ville's main reasons for leaving the Metho
dist church was the time limit, lie ob
jected to this because bethought it did not
give tbe miniHtor a tair chnnce. Dr. col
ville is a Scotchman by birth uud his early
life was speut in 'roughing it.' Some of
the time he was a sailor, lie came to this
couutry while still a boy and after a time
entered the Wyoming seiuinarv.Kint;stou,
Pa., from which he graduated, lie was
ordained and eutered the .Methodist minis
try in the Wyoming conference. Since bis
ordination he has followed the conference,
winning friends and fame, not only among
those ot his own denomination, lint with the
general public. As a public orator he has
few siiDei iors. He was particularly nop -
ular wherever he went. Ue is a man of
