Opinion mi the Subject Handed Down
by ,liidc Gimstcr.
HEY WOl'LU HE DAXGEK01S
Traction Company -Must Cross the lcla-
ware und Hudson Tracks nt Moosic by
Means of an Overhead Itrijjjc
or Not At All.
Judge fiunster handed down his opin
ions yesterday disposing of the Injunc
tion case between the Scranton and
Pittston, Tructlon company and the
Delaware and Hudson Canal company.
The matter ut Issue was the right of
the Traction cuinnaiiv to cross the
Hacks of the Delaware and Hudson
'anal company at grade at Wyoming
avenue and Spring street In Mooslc.
Judge Gunster decides that such a
grade crossing would be extremely dan
gerous and that the Tructlon company
must cross the railroad company's
tracks at these points by means of an
About 150 trains pass over those cross
ings every day, nnd under these circum
stances the Judge believes It would not
right to allow the grade crossings
ii be established. The fact that equally
as dangerous xrude crossing exists In
this city at Carbon street and West
ackawunnii avenue was no reason
why additional grade crossings should
be made, the judge said. The opinion
loses us follows: . .
Overhead CrossinR Practicable.
It has been suggested that overhead
rosslngs are not practical because they
are not practiced. That Is a mistawe.
They are practiced, and, as I have shown,
grade crossings are not only to be dls-
ouraged, but whenever It Is reasonably
pracllcalilo to avoid them It Is our duty to
prevent them. The evidence does not dls-
lose how often or how frequently the
traction company proposes to run Its cars
over these crossings, but It Is reasonable
to suppose that they would do so as often
us public travel warranted It. It Is
common experience that If a grade cross
ing is once established It is to all intents
and purposes established forever and
neither the company whose road Is
rossed nor the public at large can rid
themselves of the Inconvenience und dan
ger caused thereby.
After a careful examination of all the
evidence In the case I am of the opin
ion that It would be extremely hazardous
and dangerous to permit the defendant to
ross the plaintiff's road at grade, and
that it is reasonably practicable to avoid
such grade dressings nt both of the
points in question by an overhead cross
ing. This conclusion muy, and no doubt
will, work hardship to the defendant.
The net of 1S7I Imposes Important and
delicate duties upon our--ourts of equity
We cannot do less than perform them In
the spirit in which they are imposed, and
that Is, that the public Welfare Is para
mount to any private or corporate In
The rule Is made absolute and the in
Junction heretofore granted Is continued
until otherwise ordered.
, That Road to .Mooslc.
This opinion will put a werlous oh
stacle in the way of the completion of
the electric road from this city to Pi Ms-
ton. It is now completed and cars are
running us far 'as .Mooslc and a portion
of the road between Mooslc and Pitts
ton is laid. It only required the laying
of these crossings to practically give a
connected line of electric roads running
from Simpson In the upper end of this
county, to Nanticoke in Luzerne.
Lieutenant Governor Wat res and At
torney Lemuel Amerman.who appeared
for the Traction company -at the In
junction hearings, were seen last even
Ing by a Tribune reporter, but said they
could not tell what action the company
would take with regard to the opinion
handed down by Judge Gunster.
meeting of the stockholders will be held
In a few days at which the situation
will be discussed.
PAID FIRE DEPARTMENT.
Plan for llourd of Commissioners Muy lie
It Is possible that the Idea of estab
lishing a board of fire commissioners In
connection with the proposed paid lire
department will be abandoned. Never
theless, City Solicitor Torrey was yes
terday consulted upon the' manner of
creating the commission In order to
facilitate the creating of the commis
sion If such a board Is decided neces
Regarding the paid call system, which
It Is proposed to embody In the creative
ordinance, but to whlcJi there seems
to be some objection, Chief Ferber
said yesterday: "San Francisco, Jer
sey City, Hoboken, Easton, Erie, Lan
caster and a number of other large
cities, many of them larger than Scran
ton, have found the call system a de
cided success. It Is better than volun
teer service, no matter how good that
may be, and for that reason is worthy
of support. Statistics show that call
systems in the cities mentioned have
proved a saving; I .cannot believe that
those In authority will deny Scranton
the privilege of Improvement."
According to the ordinance two of
the existing companies will be aban
doned. It Is proposed to have seven
hose companies, five engine companies,
one chemical company, and one hook
and ladder company. Which particular
companies are to be abandoned can
not be determined until after the pass
uge of the ordinance.
MEETING OF COMMITTEE
To Consider the lHJs for tho llrldgcs
There has been one week of delay In
awarding the contract for the ' Iron
work of the Linden street bridge owing
to the difference of opinion between
common and select council members of
the street and bridges commit ten upon
the resolution providing for the award
lug of contracts on the two proposed
bridges. Tonight tho committee will
Wrhen the members of the committee
met a week ago the common counc
members broke the quorum by leaving
the city clerk's office before the meeting
wrts formally called to order. This ac
Hon was based upon their inability to
convince the selectmen that one com
pany should be awarded the contracts
for the two bridges provided the total
of Its two bids Is lower than the tw
bids of any other one company. It .Is
the opinion of City Solicitor Torry,
Mayor Connell and Rlr. Lauer, who
drafted the resolution, that the measure
provides for the contract on one bridge
to be awarded to the lowest bidder In
dependently of the bids on the other
bridge, the contract for which should
separately be awarded to the lowest
bidder on that particular bridge.
The commoners have half gained
their point by delaying action until to
night. Since the evening the committee
failed to meet It has received the bids
on the Spruce street bridge which have
been read in council and will be consid
ered along with the Linden street
bridge tonight. Unolliclally, the Edge
Moor Bridge works, of Wilmington,
has made the lowest bids, Including
either an nsphalt or plank flooring, for
the Linden street bridge; on the Spruce
Htreeet bridge the Phenix Bridge com
pany has bid lowest on a structure
with an asphalt floor, while the Penn
sylvania Bi ldgecompany has bid lowest
on n plunk tlooivd structure. Nineteen
thousand dollars will remain over from
the bridge appropriations urter about
$10 are transferred from the Linden
street bridge appropriation to cover
that probable shortage on the Spruce

One of the dark chapters In the ebb
and Mow of the tide of life was enacted
In Alderman Fitxsimmon's office yester
day afternoon at 4 o'clock. A few min
utes before that hour four persons ar
rived at the olllce and were ushered
Into tlle private room. Two were men
und two'women. The former were Jim
Wall and Slug Lee, two Chinamen, und
Minnie Plummer and Annie Murdock
were the women.
Alderman Fltzslmmons looked aghast
when the first named Mongolian pro
duced a marriage license und intimated
that he wanted to be joined In wedlock
with Miss Plummer. She lifted her veil
und assented, and her face revealed
features once handsome, but strongly

house and w-ere granted u license by
Clerk of the Courts John H. Thomas.
The Chinese groom gave his ng? as 411

was 22 years old. Alderman Fltzslm
mons questioned the girl closely about
the matter and When he was convinced
by 'her answers that It was a bona fide
agreement on her part to become the
Chinaman's bride, he Instructed them
to get ready for the ceremony.
Wall caught the girl by the hand and
summoned her to stand before fhe al
derman and with a nod of his head ho
urged his male friend to stand by his
side. The girl's companion took her
proper place and Alderman Fltzslm
mons pronounced the words that made
the contracting parties man und wife.
He Did Not Kiss Her.
"Kiss the bride," said the alderman
to the perplexed groom, but the newly
elected bride with a look of disgust and
contempt mingled, warned the China
man to. hold off. They left the office
and both Chinamen turned toward
Spruce street and ' the women went
toward Lackawanna avenue. The
Chinamen went their way and turned
toward the laundry under Ryan's drug

Who married him yesterday when she
was only 12 years of iige. Her story
from this out Is that ut the age of 12
her parents drove her out on the streets
to earn her living and she was em
ployed by Wah to wash clothes. Her
treatment ut home was so cruel that
often she had to seek shelter on the
street, and eventually she drifted to a
life of shame. The Chinaman lost sight
of her and one day about four years
afterward he located her in a house of
ill fame on Canal street, Wllkes-Harre.

and live with him but she refused. He
persisted and tit length she agreed to
marry him. That was two years ago.

bride than an outcast upon the world.

After the ceremony Mrs. Wall und
her companion called the foolish old
Clilnnman one side, whispered In his
car a few words, und he opened his
pocket book nnd gave them $20.

started out and visited several of the
hotels in the central part of the city
