Attention from the Bench.
Yesterday was motion day la court,
which is the day set apart during mid
summer in order that the bench may
clear awuy accumulated business be
fore the fall term opous. All three
judges sut during the day and an im
mense amount of business was trans
acted. The large number of lengthy and im
portant decisions handed down shows
that the judges have not beeu idle dur- ;
ing the summer vacation. Some of
thsss opinions no doubt required caru
ful and lengthy research and no small
ainouut of manual labor. Subjoined
will be found the substance of the
duy's transactions. '
SWETLAND STREET 8RI0GE.
Viewers' F.-port Set Aside by KuIIds of
The most important decision of the
day was that banded down by the pres
ident judge, in which be sets aside the
report of the viewers lu the Swetland
street bridge case. Iu summing up the
very lengthy oplulon on the question,
Judge Arch Laid sayst
The viewers were appointed to ascertain
and determine the damage and bouotUs
accruing from the whole and their report
should show that thoy have doue so. As
it stands, they have only considered apart
of the case, aud the map which they re
turn Is correspondingly defective. The
fourth exception of tne city is sustained.
Aud now, Aug. 13, 1SW, the report of
the viewers is set uside, and therefore the
case is recommitted to the same viewers
for further proceudings and report.
ft. W. Aruuuald, P. J.
The viewers were Anthony Bauuinu,
John Cawiey and (1 F. Van Nort, and
they awarded damage us follows:
Dominic llealey. $ 1. 500 ; Slur y Keegan ,
$50; Sarah Collins, $30; Elizabeth Cav
anaugh, 50; Domiuio J. Gorman, $30;
Kate Pierce, $30; James Heuley, $120
aud 900; Fronk Shifter, $000; Thomas,
James, E J ward, Julia, Isabelle White
aud Mrs. Helen Iiyau, Mrs. Jennie Mc
Dounell and Mrs, Mary Gibbons, rep
resenting the White estate, each $09.
The total damages allowed by the view
ers is 3,1)10.
By haviug "only considered a part
of the case" the judge has reference to
the viewers' refusal to in tea to L A
Finch's claim for damages, and his
statement that the map is defsstive is
based upon the fast that it did not
show the whole improvement inteudad
and the lot numbers were not accord
ing to city maps but numbers used ar
bitrarily by the viewers.

The cases of Druggists Ryan, E.
Moses and Baker Hengler, whom Rev. '
F. A. Dony had arrested for selling
unnecessary articles on Sunday, and '
which cases were appealed from Alder
mun Post's decision by the defendants,
received the atteution yesterday of '
Judge Gnuster, who gave an opinion
bearing on each particular case. ,
Judge uunster state! that inasmuch
as conclusive evidence went to show '
that Druggist Ryan's clerk bad sold
soda water on Sunduy, aud that the
supreme court hue decided that the
tale of soda water is illegal on the Sab
bath day Splane vs. Cora. 35 Pitta

pay a hue of $ t and costs, or undego 1
imprisonment iu the county jail for a .
term of six days. i
In the case of Henry Hengler, who j
runs a diuning room, bakery and soda !
fountain, Judge Gunster decided tbut
it was not contrary to lav? for Mr.
Hengler to provide dinners or to serve
soda water us a part of the bill of fare,
but iuasmuch as the evidence iudioates
that Mr. Hengler sold soda water to
others than customers of the dinning
room he was placed iu the same cato
gory as Drnggist Ryau.
In the case of Cigar Dealer E. Moses
the plea of former conviction was sus

FOURTH DISTRICT MAIN SEWER.
Judge Aro'ebald Says the Report of
Viewers Is Very Defective.
The exceptions to the report of the
viewers of the Fourth sewer district
were sustained by an opinion of Judge
Archbald who declares that the report
is very defective.
There was no ordinance attached to
the petition nor was there exhibited
any map or file to show the contem
plated improvements. It w,as also
claimed that the damages awarded by
the viowers were not actual but pros
pective beoauBe the property owners
on account of the insufficiency of the
sewer were liable to damages from
surface floods. The judge asserted
that if this olaim be true it must be
made the subjsct of exception.
LIABLE AS INDIVIDUALS.
Borough Offlolala of Sunmere Kay Be
By authority of an ordinance of coun
cil, which, however, was not signed by
the burgess, the street committee of
Dunmore borough, in October, 1801,
secured a gang of men, including sev
eral borough policemen, who went to
Daniel Powells place, on TJlukely
street, moved back his fence six feet on
one side and three feet on the other
side, cut down his cherry trues, lilao
bushes, moved buck a shoe shop and
damaged the fence that was moved.
The borough surveyor then directed
that a sidewalk be put down on the
land takon and it has been so done and
paid for by the borough.
Mr. Powell sued the borough for
damages, bnt was non-suited on the
grounds that the parties whooommi tted
the alleged acts were liable, as Individ
uals, inasmuch as their work was not
sanctioned by the proper authorities of
the borough. Thle Judge Gunster sus
tained in a lcngtny opinion. He also
held that Mr. Powell can prooeed
against the officials as individuals.
PROVIDENCE SEWER CASES.
Judge OuDster Dissolves the ZejauC'
tion AgalDst the City.
Judge Gunster rendered a decision
dissolving the iDjunotion to r-rtrain
the city of Soranton from constructing
section A of the Fifth sewer district,
snl from colleotiug the assessment
levied er proposed to be levied.
The gist of the opinion on the ques
tion 1s that the complaint of the plain
tiffs, that they will bave to belp bear
the expense of sewer laid In streets on
which their property does not abnt, is
not trne in one sense, but the evidence
shows the seotion to be constructed is
virtually one sewer and abutted by all
the property in the district. They also
claim that ordluanoe uuder which the
imnrovomeut was being prosecuted is
invalid, but the iuJge decides other
wise. STREET GRADING CONSIDERED.
Judge A rob bald Stale with Thle Ho
Judge Archbald dealt with a number
of grading oases iu which oplulous

The Bromley aveuue, North Lincoln

that Patrick Kearney, who had insti
gated proceedings to reeover damages

It was the Wilkes-Barre, and Seran

The bishop will be allowed to remain
at Cupe May, where everything is pro
pitious for bis cuse. There he has the

Mrs. Ellen Leader, of Roeker street,

Mrs. Leader was a great anfferer
from rheumatism, and read in a news

excellent remedy. Armed with the
newspaper extraot she went to a local
drug store, but before being supplied
with the artlelc she was warned to take
but fivo drops at a dose. She was also
supplied with a dropper and statod that
she thoroughly understood how to use
Dr. Thompson, of Providence, was
called la seven hours after she was taken
ill, but although be npplied all remed
ies and did his best to save her life, hit
services were called upon too late in
the day as the drag had tuken a deadly
bold of the patient. Mrs. Leader bad
evidently beeu impatient at the slow
