THE CASE STATED.
Correct Aspect of tho New Court House
Qucstion-What tho I'coplo Pcmnnd.
The action of the county commission
era on advertising for proposals to
build a new court house when thuy have
as yet secured no site on which to con
struct It, reminds the Record of a joke.
It does, at first glance, present a s.im"
tvhat humorous aspect, but. neverthe
less, It Is far from amuslntr when tho
proposition Is seriously contemplated.
The commissioners, In apparent 'se
riousness, declare that if thoy are not
permitted to purchase the South Main
street site, and If the city of W'llkes
Barre refuses to donate to the county
the river front property, then the com
missioners will proceed to erect the new
court house on the county's lot' near
the Jail, the worst possible locality In
polt of convenience that could be
found In the city. Of course drastic
measurers will be resorted to to prevent
the commissioners from carrying out
such a scheme. Nobody desires to ste
he money of the people expended in
the erection of an extravagantly ex
pensive court house In such an incon
venient and altogether Inappropriate
locality as that near the Jail. The fact
seems to be that Architect Myers and
County Commissioners Dullard, Smith
and Norton are determined to build a
new court house somewhere; they do
not appear to care where It Is located.
The people are equally determined that
no such extravagant building as the
plans of Architect Myers contemplate
shall be erected on any site. There are
comparatively fevr people In this city
or county -who are opposed to the build
ing of a new court house. All sensible
men admit that a better, larger, more
convenient and safer court house hns
beowne necessary. What they do ob
ject to Is: First, an unnecessary waste
of the money of the taxpayers; second,
the erection of the building in an incon
venient locality; third, to committing so
great a responsibility to the hands of
a board of county commissioners who
have given evidence of so little business
capacity as have Messrs. Dullard,
Smith and Norton In their transactions
with Architect Myers.
The people of this city and county are
not opposed to the erection of a new
court house; they are willing to pay
a liberal sum for a building that will
meet present and future necessities;
but they propose to make every effort
to prevent the work being done urttl.
they shall have had an opportunity to
elect a new board of commissioners,
composed of men possessing the re
quisite business capacity to do the work
In a business-like manner, and with
some regard for the InttiWts of the
taxpayers. That is the case presented
In Its true and correct aspect. This
Btatement represents popular senti
ment as it exists.
REPAIR THE ASPHALT.
Numerous Places. Where tho Pavo Has
t Jlcen Cut and Not Properly Replaced.
The municipal authorities should see
to It that the asphalted streets are kept
In1 proper repair. In scores of places
the asphalt has been cut for various
purposes and never properly repaired.
In some Instances the work of restora
tion has been done negligently and In
en utterly unworkmanlike manner.
There is a paid official whose duty it
Is to see thait this kind of work Is prop
erly done, but It la evident that such
official has not been mindful of his
functions. Franklin' street 13 In a dis
graceful condition. Large blocks of the
pave have been cut out and the space
left open without even being filled with
dirt. There Is a large space Immediate
ly In front of Jonas Long's Son's store
on the public square that Is a constant
ye-eore to the public. If H Is the
duty of the asphalt company to repair
these bad places then the company
should be required to do it. If no obli
gation rests upon the company, then
the city authorities should keep the
paved Streets In decent repair. The
property owners and the public have a
right to complain of the neglect for
iwhWh somebody Is responsible.
THE CONCORDIA'S CONCERT.
A Grand Mnslcal 'Event at the Society's
. Hall This Kvonlng.
The annual spring concert of the Con
cordia, which has been looked forward
to with anticipations of delight by the
music-loving people of this city and
valley for a month, will occur this eve
ning at the splendid and commodious
hall of -the society. The best musical
talent of the city, reinforced by noted
musicians and vocalists from other
places will participate In the rendition
of the magnificent programme. The
audience will be a dlscrimatlng one,
composed very largely of accomplished
musicians and Intelligent lovers of
music. Every seat has been taken, and
a much larger hall could have been
filled. The periodical concerts of tho
Concordia have become the favorite
musical events of Wllkes-Barre, and
the regret Is frequently expressed that
they do not occur at shorter intervals.
The Concordia and other well organized
societies have done much to-increase
the love for music and elevate the
musical standard in this city. Such
concerts as that this evening are appre
ciated by the people and liberally sus
tained by the best citizens.
STREET CAR MANAGEMENT.
Mayor Nichols Makes Some Recommends-
i- ' tions to Councils.
In a lengthy message to the city
council, submitted at its last meeting,
Mayor Nichols makes some excellent
suggestions and ' recommendations
which the municipal law-makers would
do well to carefully consider and adopt.
The mayor calls attention to the con
stant and Inevitable peril to life and
limb on the busy streets traversed by
the Traction company's cars, and earn
estly recommends the passage of an
ordinance requiring the company to
provide their cars with safety fenders.
He also urges that street cars be re-
quired to come to a stop at every street
crossing. These crossings are the real
danger points and the suggestion of the
mayor is opportune. He next calls at
tention to the practice of street railway
companies issuing free passes to muni
cipal officers and reprehends this prac
tice as inimical to the public interests.
"The importance of excluding from
every sphere of the public service all
influences calculated to induce actions
or omissions opposed to the dictates of
conscience or the suggestions of honest
convictions, cannot be overvalued. I do
not believe I exaggerate the truth in
asserting that nearly every officer of
our city is now favored by this com
pany with a free pass. The stations of
many of these recipients are charged
with duties that cannot, at all times,
be faithfully performed without dis
pleasing the company. The effect of
this fact upon the vigilance and loyalty
of the public service can be estimated
by all men in whom tho promptings of
gratitude have been excited by deeds
of kindness. I respectfully recommend
an ordinance prohibiting all city, offi
cers 'from accepting free passes or
passes at a discount from any street
railway or other transportation com
pany." The recommendation of Mayor Nich
ols is forcible and correct In principle,
but it will not bq likely to command
serious consideration by council. City
officials will continue (to enjoy free
transportation on the Traction com
pany's cars, and they are not ungrate
ful when the company wants favors.
MIRDER INJMtMD DECREE.
i:nd of the Hendricks Trial-Tlio Verdict
Yesterday morning Attorney John T.
Lenahan, for the commonwealth, com
pleted his closing speech to the Jury
In the Hendricks trial for the murder
of Harney lleiek. It was one of the
most remarkable pleas ever heard in
the Luzerne county court house. The
trial has continued for sixteen days,
the longest on record In this county.
Ono hundred and sixty-one witnesses
were examined. Immediately after the
close of Mr. Lenaihan's address, Judge
Woodward duliversd a carefully-pre
pared and impartial charge to the Jury
and at 1 o'clock the Jurors retired to
deliberate on itheir verdict.
At 9 o'clock In the evening word was
sent from the Hendricks Jury who have
been out since 1 o'clock this afternoon,
that they had agreed upon a verdict.
In less than ten minutes the crowd
blocked all four sides of the court house
and all the windows were filled with
men and boys. Ten minutes later
Judge Woodward appeared on the
bench. Dr. Hendricks, of Hoboken, N.
J., a brother of the accused man, his
mother, and Mrs. John J. Robinson,
wife of another of the accused men,
were' also in waiting to hear the ver
dict. The attorneys on both sides were
present, and exactly at 9.1B the Jury
filed Into the court room and took their
seats In the Jury box.
The clerk rose to hfs feet, and facing
the Jury, said: "Gentlemen, have you
agreed upon a verdict?"
Foreman Davis at once answered
"We have." The verdict, sealed, was
handed up to the Judge and he handed

CRIME IN APRIL.
Report of tho Chief of Police of the Opera
tions of His Force.
That Wllkes-Barre is a fairly peace
able and orderly city is shown by the
monthly reports of Chief of Police
Brlggs. For the month of April there
were only 167 arrests, and but a very
small per cent, of these were for of
fenses of a serious nature. Of the en
tire number 94, or considerably more
than CO per cent., were arrested for
drunkenness and either "assisted
home," or taken to the station house.
This report, like its predecessors, em
bodies a feature that has long attract
ed attention but has never been ox
plained. It is this: Twenty-one per
sons found drunk on the streets were
carefully "assisted" to their homes by
the police, who, in the performance of
this benevolence, were compelled to
neglect their legitimate duties on their
beats. Forty others found drunk on
the streets were run into the lockup,
brought up before the mayor the fol
lowing morning and many of them
required to pay a fine. "Why this dis
crimination?" asks a teorrespondent.
"If getting drunk and staggering
around the street Is an offense deserv-

Ing the penalty of a night in tho lockup
and a fine the next morning, why is
the penalty not Impartially . Imposed
upon all offenders alike?"
There were twelve arrests for assault
and battery, nineteen for corner-loafing,
sixteen for fighting, fourteen for
vagrancy and so on. When the report
of the chief for April is analyzed it ap
pears that but for drunkenness there
would have been very little work for
the police in tho month of April. Either
crime has been Veduced to a minimum
In Wllkes-Barre or much goes undetected.
CANDIDATES FOR WEST POINT.

THE LAWYERS SAY YES.
Resolutions by the liar Association In
Favor of Judicial Legislation.
The Luzerne County Bar association,
at a recent meeting, discussed the bills
now before the legislature providing
for the pensioning of judges who have
served twenty years and have reached
the age of 70; and that creating an Ap
pellate court. Tho Luzerne attorneys,
like their brethren throughout the
state, are heartily In favor of these
bills. The resolutions were drawn by
ex-Attorney General Palmer and are
Resolved, That this association fn
fors the passage of the bill under
which Judges of the commonwealth
may retire on full pay after a continu
ous service of twenty years, and after
reaching seventy years of age. The
measure is one of simple Justice, as
well as wise economy, and can meet
with opposition only from motives un
worthy of enlightened citizenship.
Resolved, That this association fa
vors the passage of 'the bill creating an
9ppellate court, believing that as now
constituted She Supreme court is una
ble to decide the cases that are brought
before it to the satisfaction of either
court or suitors, for want of sufficient
time for their argument and considera
tion. True economy will not stint the
sum necessary to defray the expense of
deciding controversies that arise
among the people. The fact appearing
that another court is absolutely neces
sary for the transaotlon of the public
business, the question of cost is not
lmportant and ought not to defeat the
relief Bought to be provided by this bill.
Resolved, That a copy of this resolu
tion be furnished out members and
senators, and to the newspapers for
