times drove him to the borders of .In
sanity. , Great Interest was taken in 'Iris case
by medical men generally and at a
lairgtly attended meeting of the County
medical society his case was discussed
at some length and the question as to
whether the operation of itreiVhlnlng

considered. It was finally decided that

operation performed by the "hospital
etaff If they deemed It expedient.
Dr. Connell, assisted by the hospital
staff, performed the operation some

.SEWS OF TKE SOl'TH SIDE.
Residents Complain of the Amount of
liegging Hone by Tramps-Trouble Over
Street Grading Death of .Mrs. Patrick
Complaints have frequently reached
the ears of the police olliceis ut the Al
der street station that a gang of tramps
have been making thtlr rendezvous
nightly at the Lackawanna Iron and
Steel company's cinder dump In the
upper end of the Twelfth ward, that
these pa.tH become so bold during the
day while the men are at work, that
the female members of ths household
were afraid to refuse any of the re
quests for food or even money.
Last night Lieutenant Zang and a
squid of officers mule a visit to the
cinder dump and tiiey succeeded in
catching four bums who were j-ec ig
nlzed as having been at. work on the
chain gang in the streets of this city
last summer. The four tramps were
taken to the Alder street station and
locked up. Today they will be as
signed to a task breaking stone.
The police observed that the tramps
were arranging quarters at the cinder
dump which looked as If they Intended
to make themselves comfortable for the
winter and live from the back doors of
the residences of this side.
Trouble Over Street Grnding.
What has caused the principal delay
in opening the Hickory strret extension
of the South Side street railway ap
pears to be the ilis:;atjafaotion between
the property owners on Heech street
and the officials of the Scran ton Trac
tion company. It was the belief on the
part of the property owners that the
right of way given to the street car
company to extend Its tracks along cer
tain streets meant that, the company
should grade the street from the center
to the curbing In accordance with the
established grade of the city engineer.
Yesterday afternoon Select Coucil-
man Charles Westpfahl, of the Nin !
teenth ward, was called upon to settle ;
a dispute between two neighbors re-'
garding the grada. One claimed to
have the proper grade and the other
also put in the same claim, although
each differed very materially. M:
Westpfahl promised to bring the city
engineer to the scene and arrange t:
uniform grade that nil will understand.
