When the announcement was made
some three months ago In these columns
that there would be no paving done on
Main street "this year of our Lord" the
Idea was scouted, but the people of
Plttston have since learned that the
prediction was not un irrldescent
dreRm. As has been contended all
along, to pave a street money Is re
quired. Unfortunately this, In sufficient
quantities, Is lacking and the prospects
of receiving subscriptions In the shape
of $500 checks from Individuals are
about as thin as the atmosphere we
breathe. The manner In which the bal
lots were constructed in order that the
expression of the voters might be ascer
tained was of such a bungling charac
ter that the loan of 133,300 can only be
used for Bewerlng and paving. One can
not be done without the other, at least
that Is the construction put upon It by
persons versed In the law governing
such matters. The attempt to use any
of the money for paving purposes with
out constructing the sewers as well,
would Invite criticism and even the pos
sibilities of Injunctions being Berved.
Mr. Furman, representative of the Bar
ber Asphalt company, was here last
week, and after making a thorough
study of the question In all its details
left town Friday night. "No," he said,
before leaving, "as matters stand at
present the Barber company shall not
begin the paving of Main street."
Mr. Furman submitted the several
ordinances and resolutions relative to
paving passed by council to the com
pany attorneys, and as the ordinance
Included sewering, difficulty might
arise in the event of the whole of the
loan of $33,300 being used for street
In regard to the circular contracts
signed by the property holders, which
were submitted at the last meeting of
council, the Barber company attorneys
May they ate not binding. Before the
jompany would agree to pave the street
in front of Iheir properties, the latter
will be requested to sign a contract
drafted after the manner of the con
tracts signed by the property holders
on Lackawanna avenue, Scranton,
when the Barber company paved that
thoroughfare, the property holders
there paying two-thirds of the cost.
Mr. Furman says that if a majority
of the property holders shall sign the
contracts, and the resolution of council
Is amended so as to leave the borough
clear to pay for the pave without the
sewer reservation, the company will un
dertake the work. As the contract to
pave the street, less the' amount the
property holders agree to pay, would
Involve an outlay of about $45,000 and
the borough can only borrow $33,300
there Is not the slightest danger of the
council amending the resolution "so as
to leave the borough liable," because
for them to do so they would be usurp
ing power they do not possess, legally

be such amendment to the game laws
as will protect game birds and animals
from the voracious pot hunter. It has
been no uncommon thing in the years
past for a hunter to slaughter from 100

bits, In a single season. The conse
quences are Just what might have been
expected, and these hunters do well
now to bag one-half that number, while
the occasional hunter rarely gets a
shot. However well the game laws may
be observed during the rest of the year,
if the game Is all killed in the fall It will
be perpetually scarce.

was delivered on Wednesday evening
before a large and appreciative audi

to the later years of Shakespeare's life
the period of Hamlet. Caesar, Lear,
Othello and other more romantic
plays.' Mr. Sprague spoke at length of
the qualities that distinguish the later
from the earlier plays of Shakespeare.
There was nn improvement in their
moral tone, he said, and a reverence
for sacred things not evident In his
early works. There was less grossness

and more fervor. The plays of Shakes
peare, while not entirely free from
the flippancy of his time, were less
Offensive to refined feelings than the
majority of the plays of that, period.
Mr. Sprague does not agree with those
who consider Shakespeare as a man
without religion, and quoted liberally
from his plays to support his views. He
also spoke of the changes In Shakes
peare's style of composition and'of the
peculiarities of certain of the charac
ters he created. A brief discussion be
tween members of the circle followed
The course of lectures now closed has
been 'unexpectedly profitable and' an
interest in university extension has
been shown that is creditable alike to
the members of the circle and the peo
ple In general. There were a few who
thought that Archbald would not give
the movement the support it deserved,
but fortunately these pessimists have
been disappointed. The course has been
a pronounced success. Not a little of
the credit for this happy result is due to
Colonel Sprague, for it was owing
largely to his attractive qualities that
the Interest was sustained, and a desire
for the study of Shakespeare was awakened.
