wagons used for hauling heavy loads In
tiie city and that the proceeds of tlio
license tax be expended under the di
rection of the Ftrect commissioner In
maintaining and keeping In repair the
unp.ived streets of the city. The com
mittee further recommended that when
the owners of any vehicle so licensed
shall place on their wagon wheels tires
of a width of not ltw than four Inches
tint the tax be remitted.
S. J. Jlerr raised the question of coun
try wagons, but It was pointed out that
the city authorities could not exercise
any control over them. A. V. Dickson
Haiti he scarcely thought the report
went far enough in its recommenda

Colonel Hitchcock advocated tha.t all
Vehicles be taxed regardless of width of
tires. John Kemmerer advocated a cer

ness men to make the change before
the ordinance would be in operation.
Luther Keller thought 'that business

that the water which was allowed to

that the tax be not levied until the ex

report of the committee was received
and the recommendations adopted.

best industries offered to Scranton, and
that, as $20,000 would be subscribed by
Mr. Torbet, the remainder ought to be
subscribed for In a week by Scranton
men. Mr. Council had spoken to him

HEALING THE SICK.
To relieve human suffering seems to
be not only a gift, but a comprehensive
knowledge of the means to employ.
Kvery day since Dr. Andrew and his
nss.icintcH came to Scranton, they have
b;-cn pel forming perfi st revelations in
.healing. - Some of their cures, both at
Music ilall and at their private ollice
at the Hotel Westminster, seem nl
rnost too remarkable for belief.
The case of Charles Campbell, who
was treated in public at Music Hall
for seven years ithls man had nut been
able to do any work, and for Hf toon
moi'.ths had nut left his door he says
that the (b.-;rlor treated him only once,
and that now he Is a well man.
Mr. Henry Hrown -was last week
cured of a very distressing disease of
the kidneys and Joints. lie had not
walked for over three years without
the aid of crutches. He says that the
doctor gave him sonic kind of medi
cine and oil'; magnetic treatment, when
he left their ollice carrying bis crutches
on his phoiilder and has not used tlum
Mr. II irrisi.n had .been deaf twelve
years. He has been cured and can now
Jasper Johnson says that he bad been
nfllicted for about nine years viih n
distase of the kidneys, and that, after
only ten days' treatment, ho went to
work at his trade that of a stone
mason and has not lost a day s-inee.
On last Sunday afternoon, among the
number who calh d, was a line old Irish
lady who was all crippled up with the
rheumatism. She was assisted up the
etaiis and Into itlieir rooms, where she
told her K.irrovful tale of suffering.
1 lie dontor listened to her complaint
and then F.ild: "Madam, do yon v.bli
to be cured?" She replied: "And in
daiL I do, doctor." When before rhe
could count ten the doL'tor made a f.w
passes over her body and limbs, took
lier cants and threw them in the corner
and til. n ti '.tl her to gut up nnd wall:,
that she was all right. Slowly the aid
lady aros. from her chair, stretched
her limbs, worki d them back and forth,
und then began to walk and run, and
shouted, "That's the f-tuff! that's the
stuff! Before find 1 am cured; bless
you doctor, t!od bless you. But won't
the children be happy when I get home;
this will lie great for Christmas," and
away she went down Hie stairs and out
upon itlie street shouting, "See! 1 am
cured, the doctor has cured me."
This list of remarkable cures mUi'at
be extended to fill columns of ibis pc.p: r
and then not the half told.
All sick, cripph d and du.if people and
those who have pi vert up all hope, can
consult tin se docitors entirely free from

reasons for a new trial in the case of
the Scranton Clas und AVater company
against the Lackawanna Iron and Coal

The Injunction Dissolved.
Judge (Uinster handed down nn
opinion yesterday in the injunction case
of tlie Silver Creek Mining company
.against David K. Taylor and V. W.
1'attersoti. The proceedings were for
the purpose of restraining the defend
ants from operating the Johns breaker
in Schuylkill county and from mining
coal from the Harp tract which adjoins
the breaker. It was alleged that these
properties properly belonged to the Sil
ver Creek company Instead of to Taylor
& Patterson as Individuals. Judge
Cunster did not take that view of the
case and dissolved the Injunction.. V.
H. Taylor, president of the Silver Creek
Mining ciimpany, was not in the city
yesterday and what further steps may
be taken in the matter could not be as
certained. A settlement was effected in the in
