Joinc.. Interesting Pacts Concerning
Our Municipal Government.
STATISTICS IX LIVE PORM
tVuiking Twenty .Miles a Day It Would

All Our Streets-Other Kcutl
It is commonly said that figures are
dry and uninteresting facts. To one
of an Inquiring mind this statement
cannot be applied to the report Just
Issued containing Mayor Counell's re
cent message and the statements of
heads of departments for the year end
ing Starch 81, 1S94.
In considering what follows it should
be borne in mind that the ligures apply
to the year ending in the spring or
early summer months. For example, the
report of the city engineer's depart
ment, which very vividly shows the
material growth of the city, contains
food for instructive and Interesting
comparisons. The mileage of the city's
streets and alleys equals the distance
to New York city; sixty farms occupy
ing 200 acres each jvould only Just
nbuut fill the city limits; walking twen
ty miles a day it would take u pedes
trian one week to traverse all the city
thoroughfares. The Eighteenth Is the
smallest, ward In the city and contain!-!
4:'.;t acres, thf Twenty-tlrst heads the
list with 2,21.1 acres.
What Police Kccords Show.
The police records show that twice
as many single men as married men
tire arrcHted, that foreign-born evil
doers almost equal the natives, thut
eight times more males than females
an- arrested. Over one-third of ar
rets are made for drunkenness.
Of the total city income, $626,827, over
13 per cent., was derived from liquor
licenses. Of the total assessments for
local Improvements, $!2.9u:i, nearly one
lialf, was for sewers. The next largest
item was for redeeming and interest
on street improvement bonds. The
value of taxable property is about $10.
nOO.000. 'i'lie amounts necessary to
conduct a few of the city's most ex
pensive departments are as follows:
Police, M2,u7.i; street commissioner's,
$:'.!i.2!)4: city engineer's; J2S.620; lire, $27,
470; city clerk's. $ii,2."ii). Appropriations
for all these departments were Increas
ed fur the present year.
According to the rate of valuation on
personal property and occupation, man
agers of corporations and the law
judges of the several courts head the
list at $;'00; then come coal operators,
S-lou; bank cashiers, brokers, brewers,
gentlemen, coal agents, wholesale mer
chants, mine Inspectors, -'MQ each, .
Startling ligures are furnished by
the chief of the lire department which
are peculiarly interesting In view of the
present hunt for the person responsi
ble for the late Smith Hide fires. Out
of a total of 1!HI fires 21 were Incendiary,
ti were supposed to be incendiary and
45 resulted from causes unknown. As
suming that thirteen of the forty-live
fires livm unknown causes were in
ceiidlury, forty fires were started by
arson fiends, over 21 per cent, of the
total number of l!i0. The greatest num
ber of alarms from any box In the city
were the eleven alarms from box No.
till, at the Delaware ami Hudson rail
load and Green Midge street. Ten
alarms were rung from box No. SI, cor
ner of P.rirk and Oak streets, and nine
from the dreaded box No. 13, ut the cor
ner of I'enn and Lackawanna avenues.
'rystal and Phenix companies respond
ed to sixty-three alarms euch, but as
the "still alarms" were respectively
'.i ami fi, the record possibly belongs
to the Crystals. The Hook and Lad
ders and Nay Augs come next with
tlfty-seven and til'ty-four responses.
Almost twice as many alarms, thirty
four, occurred In April as in any other
month except May, when twenty-one
ularms were sounded. Nearly a half
inllliou dollars of insurance was in
volved In the fires of the year, und yet
the net loss was $H'ts,C79.
It required $2;:6.3riO for school expendi
tures for the year ending June l!0; of
this amount nearly half, or $10S.S7fl
was paid to teachers. The total value
of the city's school real estate Including
the contemplated high school, is over
$:i(W,00. According to the recent act
cf assembly all the text books and sup
plies were furnished free, at a cost of
513,608 for the year.
HARTLEY AT HIS PRANKS.
Caused u Good Deal of Trouble In a New
York ICIevatcd Railroad Train.
It Is unnecessary to explain to Scran
ton readers who Charles A. Hartley Is.
The following dipping from a recent
New York Herald will, no doubt, Inter
est his many Scrantou friends:
It was a rainy night nnd the train was
crowded with passengers going down
town. In the rear car every seat was
taken when the train left Ninety-third
Btreet station in Columbus avenue. In
one of the rear seats was a person who
nppeared to lie enjoying a calm sleep.
Just as .the train was approaching
the Seventy-second"street station a
Voice at the forward door cried out:
"Vlfty-nlnth street change cars for
The voice was clear and resonant.
Kvery one In the car heard It. an ufi
usunl thing on elevated trains, as every
one knows. A dozen passengers who
thought thoy Had been carried beyond
their stations at Seventy-second and
Sixty-sixth streets, hurried toward the
door, and as many more who wanted
to change cars at Fifty-ninth street
joined In the forward movement. Pas
sengers for Seventy-second and Sixty
Klxth streets were angry because they
believed they would huve to go buck lit
As the head of the procession readied
the door the train guard poked In his
Dead und culled:
' "Seventy-second street."
The ,tram halted with a Jerk which
threw a half dozen passengers olt their
feet. There was a struggle at the door
between those who wanted to get oft the
train and those who didn't, and bv the
time the train moved forward there
were a dozen passengers angry enough
to assault the conductor.
"What In thunder do you mean by
this performance?" demanded one of
them as He approached the conductor.
"Why did you call out Fifty-ninth
street when tne train was at Seventy'
"But I didn't," said the train guard.
"Yes, you did!" shouted the ungry
passengers In a chorus, and one big man
put himself in a position to attack the
"Hut I know he didn't!" piped a shrill
yolce, Just under the roof of the car.
Kvery one looked up in astonishment
and the amazement was Increased when
a voice which seemed to come from be
neath the car floor paid, soothingly.
"Culm yourselves, gentlemen, calm
yourselves. 1 called out the station!"
The passengers, recognizing the sltua
tlon, retreated to their seats and began
looking around. Then suspicion began
to fall upon the sleepy man In the reur
corner. A big man the one who want'
cd to fight the train guard went over
to htm and said:
"That was a line Joke, but don't you
think you had better get off at the next
The sleepy man left the cur at Fifty-
ninth street and took another train
Although the sleepy man got off at
Forty-ninth street, the real cuuse of
the mischief was not discovered and

require a dilllcult solution to compare

tonlan, whose talent often delighted
the people of this city before hf took up

CENTRAL THOUGHT NAILED.
But the Old Gentleman Forgot the Text
and the Subject.
From the Lewlston (Me.) Journal.
Into a Maine village where he had
preached when he was a licentiate with
more hopes than fame, there came a
few Sundays ago an elderly and pros
perous doctor of divinity. After the
morning serveice an old, white-haired
man approached the doctor, and, hold
ing out his hand, said:
"Glad to see ye. I want to thank ye
for what ye said this morning, and to
tell ye that ye preached a sermon here
years ago I've never forgotten."
Pleased by such remembrance, the
doctor grasped the proffered hand
heartily, and said:
Hy the way, what was that sermon?
I don't seem to remeber."
"Well," answered the old man, I
don't remember the text, nor I don't re
member what you called the subject,
but the central thought was thut the
ology ain't religion; no, not by a d d

A TALE Of A DOG.
In It a Parrot and a Small lloy Figure
Considerable excitement was created
the other evening In a mansion on the
hill, which concerned a pollparrot, bull
dog, little Willie and the corner grocery-
man, it all ended In the sad departure
of the pretty bird, the disposal of the
aog and the tears of little Willie's
The corner groceryman gave the can
ine to Willie. Whether the action wafc
prompted by the cussedness of uie
brlndle beauty, generosity, or a desire
to hold the family trade does not ap
pear. Yip was the dog's name, and he
killed chickens, brought mud Into the
house, curled himself in big easy chairs,
and all that sort of thing. Neverthe
less the dog stayed, because Willie's
parents were very indulgent. When
ever mamma cast reflections upon the
beauty or usefulness of Yip, then little
illle made unpleasant remarks about
mamma's pretty parrot. Poll. Papa
coincided with young America in hih
reference to the bird, so there pre
vailed a forced triumvirate of peuce.
This Is how It all happened:
It was a stormy evening when papa
and mamma had gone to the theater,
after seeing the youngest member ot
the household tucked snugly In bed.
The maid was in the kitchen. Poll sat
upon her accustomed elevated perch,
plucking at her feathers with the van
ity that became her station and Yip lay
stretched on a rug befor a crackling
grate tire. The rain patterd mourn
fully on the windows, the wind Boughea
ghost-like, stillness reigned within,
and everything seemed favorable for a
high grade Wilkie Collins tragedy.
"Sic c 'em," exclaimed a mysterious
voice and still the grate fire crackled
and the brlndle beauty slumbered.
"Sis-c-c 'em," again sounded the voice
of mystery, and the brlndle beauty
"Slc-c-c-c 'em," came the voice for the
third time In louder and more authorl
tive tones. Yip's head was now ele
vated and knowingly cocked to one
side as he wondered if that afternoon's
eVilelten OfM I" n-M,.'- 1 '
Willie und the chicken had participated
was a reality 01 a ui.u..i.
Attributing the sound to a delusion
he circled about on the rug, finally
dropping Into a comfortable position
and going off Into the seventh heaven
of a dog dream. He was awakened by
another ghoullike "slc-c 'em," and
scrambled hastily to a standing posi
tion. His four crooked legs trembled
with excitement, which ended in a trot
about the room. He sniffed and poked
his stubby nose Into all manner of
shadowy nooks, eventually returning to
the rug. Here he stood during a
moment, with muzzle and abbreviated
tall erect, and wearing a thoroughly
puzzled air. Suddenly he whirled
about and east a long and Inquiring
look upon pretty Poll, who returned
the glance in kind. Yip, apparently sat
Islled, threw himself upon the rug to
continue his Interrupted nap. His
wethermost eye was only partially
closed and his four stout legs were
gathered well beneath hiiu,.
The rain pattered, the wind soughed,
the grate fire cracked; everything
seemed harmonious. Sharply the still
ness was broken.
"Sic-c 'em: slc-c-c 'em," came the
command with peculiar Imperative
ness. Then followed a black ami gray
streak through the air in the direction of
the bird of many colors, a crash sound
ed, and out of the confusion came a
deluge of shrieks, growls and general
When papa and mamma returned
from the theater divers portions of
Poll's lute anatomy were found In the
hall, parlor, library nnd dining room.
Yip was chained lor the night in the
barn for the llrst time since he had
been a member of the family. When
the corner groceryman's boy called at
the house In the morning Yip was, by
request, nttuchtMl to the rear axle nnn
conducted to further ordinary life midst
butter, cheese and eggs. When little
Willie rebelled against such Ignomlnous
banishment, mamma used her siippei
and then "had a good cry."
It was reported later that the first day
Yip escaped the vigilance of the
groceryman he killed two cats and
eleven chickens, caused a runaway, up
set a bicyclist and at sundown was
looking for more worlds to conquer.

those men over to Hyde Park across
the gully would have been certain death
to all of them. The last resort was to
get Mayor McKune's veto on the pro
ceedings. He was utterly helpless and
weak and almost paralyzed from shock.
But he grasped the situation. Ill as he
was, with bruises all over his body, his
nerves a-shaken and his fractured jaw
bone In bandages, he came out of the
house, walked up and down the porch,
showing himself to the mob, and he told
the prisoners that they should not obey
the summons of arrest.
"Such exposure might have
meant Instant death and he
knew it. But he preferred this
rather than the feeling that a dozen or
more men might be killed. That was
true heroism. Scranton's honors over
Mayor McKune's dead body are a sad
commentary. They ought to have hon
ored him while he was alive."
