Mr. Grlggsby, of Lancaster, Introduces a
.Measure in the Interest of I'na duller
uted Spirituul Ucfrcshmont-Pro-vlJinR
for Boiler Inspectors.
Bpeclal to the Seranton Tribune.
Ilarrisburg. Jan. 22. A bill providing
for the appointment by the governor of
a board of boiler inspectors, consisting
of one or more from each judicial dis
trict, to inspect all steam boilers in
their respective districts not subject
under the laws of the United States,
and to grant certificates of license to
persons iiaullfled to be entrusted with
the care and management of boilers
and machinery, was introduced by Rep
resentative Lawrence, of Washington.
The bill provides that the inspectors
shall hold office for four years, unless
removed by the governor, and that
they shnll not be eligible to appoint
ment unless they have served eight
years us a practical engineer.
Two months after the passage of the
proposed act the Inspectors are to meet
in this city to establish rules and regu
lations for the inspecting of boilers.
The bill prescribes the methods of test
ing boilers and empowers the inspectors
to administer oaths In the performance
of their duty. Whenever un owner or
user of boilers is aggrieved on account
of the decision of an Inspector he may
appeal to a board of thtve inspectors
of adjoining districts, whose decision in
tke matter shall be final. It is made a
misdemeanor, punishable by a heavy
fine, to use boilers after they have been
condemned and before they have been
repaired and approved by the Inspector.
It is also made a misdemeanor to carry
frreater steam pressure than allowed
by the certificate of the Inspector; in
case of an engineer such violation of
the proposed law shall cause his license
to be revoked.
Persons licensed are graded and clas
sified in three grades, the first grade to
lie composed of chief engineers, who
shall be competent to take charge of
a boiler of any kind: second grade, a
boiler from 100 to 3UU horse power, and
third grade, a boiler from 1 to .10 horse
power. The inspectors are to be paid
$3 for Issuing a certificate of inspec
tion of one boiler and $2 for each addi
tional boiler. They are also to be paid
a small fee for the examination of
applicants for license. The proposed
law does not apply to railroad engineers
and makes owners of portable saw
mills, threshers, water Wells, oil, gas
and farm boiler and engines respon
sible for damage to life and property.

Trenton, X. J., Jan. 22. Counsel for
Mrs. Coleman Drayton today obtained
from V ice Chancellor Green an order
extending to Jan. 23 the time in which
she may file her denial to the specific
charges of Infidelity made in her hus
band's bill for divorce. Mrs. Drayton
Is now on her way to this country, and
is due to arrive In New York on Thurs
day. Her counsel, It. V. Llndulmay, of
Elizabeth, declares that Mrs. Drayton
will not only make a strong denial of
the charges of intimacy with Hallett
AIsop Iiurrowe, but that she will light
the application for divorce to the end.
The taking of testimony before a
master In chancery Is thus delayed once
more, and It is not likely to begin for
a month or more, as under the order
she has until Jan. 29 to file an amended
answer. It is quite likely that It will
the: be taken in private, as nearly all
the prict idings so far have been quiet

Miss Belli! Mills Is the principal or the
village high school. A few weeks ago
Miss Mills noticed ttfat a spirit of In
subordination was becoming manifest
among some ef the larger pupils. Un
der her charge are a number of young
men ranging from 10 to 20 years of age.
She noticed that when one of the larger
pupils was ordered to do anything
obedience was followed by Jeers and
taunts, wih;lch Indicated contempt on
the part of the pupils for one who will

One day young Wills found a hand-
Kere'nier upon line Hour ami inuug u i
upon the chanelelier. Miss Mills or
dered him to take it down. The com
mand was repeated two or three times
and he finally obeyed and put the
handkerchief Into his pocket. After
the noon recess Wills walked to the
tlh'.mdelicr mud hung the soiled haml
ke'iertilef upon It again. The presump
tion was that the older boys had guyed
h'lin at recess for taking the handker
chief down, nel he had been thus
wrought up to the point of making a
content wltHi his teacihi't'. Miss Mills
promptly ordered him to take down the
handki'rchlef, but he refused to elo so
and persisted iln his re fuswl, though he
refraini'd from impudence and main
tained a respectful demeanor. Miss
Mills sent for Professor Crowley, who
has charge eif the Intermediate or gram
mar department, and aiked him to get
some swlti'hes. She also reeiuested him
to remain In the room, as she Intended
to whip young Wills. Crowley secured
three large switches and took a posi

ably to lend a helping hand should
Wills offer resistance or Hny of the
other pupils come to his rescue1.

of the community came to 'her rescue,

her favor, but the Wills -family are
prominent In the community and were
not without tilielr partisans In the con
