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. He says: "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 (icnornlly Condemned. 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 I t back to 'tho clerk, who read it as fol lows: "We find the defendant, James Hen dricks, guilty of murder In the sec ond degree." Judge Woodward then discharged them from any further attendance at court. He did not even thank the Jury and was apparently disgusted with the verdict. When the verdict was announced the prisoner seemed, to be overjoyed and was overwhelmed with congratulations by hi3 relatives and attorneys. The counsel for the commonwealth. while not entirely satisfied, expressed their satisfaction thait the prisoner had not escaped punishment altogether. The verdict is condemned generally by the public, who expected It to be in the first degree. The Jury stood 10 to 2 in favor of murder in the first degree on the first ballot, but the ten yielded to the two and consented "to a verdict that is a travesty upon justice. 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- Quaker f OATS A million folks eat Quaker Oats every morning. Why? If you had tasted, Quaker and cream you'd know why Sold only la lb; Packages U IU 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. A Largo Number Present Themselves for Physical Examination. ' The physical examination of candi dates for the West Point cadetship was held yesterday, afternoon In the Re publican league rooms, on South Main street. Drs. Weaver, Kirwln and Neale had charge of the examination. All the candidates passed the examina tion. The following were the candi dates: From Wllkes-Barre, Oarrlck M. Borden, Archbald Leuder, Charles F. Schltngman, Richard M. Thomas, Mark C. James, Edward C. Howe, Jarcd W. Stark and William D. Whlte; Jr.; from Pittston, James Lang, 'Joseph B. Reap and Walter H. Kyte; from Nantlcokp, Elmer Bennett, J. N. O. Oarman, Cosslmer Sosnowskl and Charles M, Ohlman; from Huntingdon Mills, Ralph P. Coons; from Wright township, John Funcke; from Auden reld, William L. Adams; from llazle ton, Augustus Schmidt. The mental examination will be held nt the Wllkes-Barre high school on Saturday morning. Professor Harri son, of Wllkes-Barre; Shlel, of Pitts ton, and Harmon, of Hazleton, will constitute the board of examiners. 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 as follows: 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 publication. No Vote Yesterday. Dispatches from Harrlsburg received In this city yesterday afternoon say the supporters of the Quay county bill were afraid to call up thait bill and conse quently the measure Is regarded as dead beyond all hope of resurrection. "How to Curo All Skin Dlsonsos." Simply apply "Swayne's Ointment." No internal medicine required. Cures tet ter, eczema, itch, all eruptions on tho face, hands, nose etc., leaving the skin clear. white and healthy, its great healing and curative powers are possessed by no other remedy.

BRIEF NOTES. i A complete report of the IvoWte con vention begins on page 1. A Christian Endeavor rally will be held at the Presbyterian church in Plains this evening. - i The Ninth Regiment band paraded for the first time In their new uniforms yesterday afternoon. A special meeting will be held at the rooms of the Rescue mission by the lady managers, this afternoon at 2.30. Tomorrow evening the B. I. A. will have an entertainment In 'Memorial hall. The comedy "A Box of Monkeys" will be given by a party of young people from Wyoming seminary. It is frequently commented upon that none of the Wllkes-Barre newspapers publish the time table of the Delaware and Hudson company. That company undoubtedly loses considerable passen ger traffic by this omission. If the bill imposing a tax of 24 cents a barrel on 'beer should pass the legis lature the ibrewery of Stegmaler & Son would have to pay In the neighborhood of $25,000 a year, no small Item for even so great an establishment as the Steg maler brewery has become. ' when before the mayor on Tuesday, Fred Price, the proprietor of the Grand Central hotel, said the other hotels in the city were Just an much assignation houses as his had been. The mayor very properly replied that, he knew the assertion was a lie. , .... Relief In Six Honrs.

The Electrics, ot this place, met a crushing defeat by the hands of the second team of the Young 'Men's Chris tian association In the Scranton Base Ball park yesterday afternoon. Up to the seventh Inning the game was quite interesting, the score being 8 to 4, but in the last two Innings, by a combina tion of errors on the part of the Elec trics, and some terrific slugging by the Young Men's Christian association team, the latter named team secured twenty-one runs, while their adver saries scored but three. Some excuse can be given for the representative team of this place for their poor show ing, as they were, unfortunately, badly crippled for players, only four of tho regular team being able to get away from work.
