, THE MAYOR'S HANDS TIED.
A Komarkablo Statement Mali by Mnyur
Yesterday'. Record contained a state
ment made by Mayor Nichols to a rep
resentatlve of that puper, that cannot
fall to command the most serious at
tentlon of the people of this city. The
operations atid methods of 'Mayor
Nichols In his crusade otmlnBt the more
prominent and notorious bawdy houses
have been fully detailed In thC3e Qui'
umns. Under the peculiar charter of
Wllkes-Barre the mayor has little con
trol of the police force, tho chief and
his subordinates being subject to the
orders of the police committee of coun-
ells. Mayor Nichols alleges that In his
efforts to abollBh one of the worst evils
In the city he has not had the co-c pent
tion of the police, but, on the contrary,
has been compelled to encounter the
active opposition of that body, acting
under the direction of the police com
mittee of council. This la a very se
rious allegation, and one v.-hich cannot
It Is not conceivable that there is a
single member of city councils who
would uphold so great an evil as that
Which Mayor Nichols has been waging
war against, and yrt. If the mayor is
correctly reported by the Record, he
certainly charges that very offense
against certain councilmen. Under the
operations of the city charter the mayor
and police force seem to be entirely di
vorced In their official relations. The
mayor can neither appoint nor dis
charge a policeman. The officers must
stand in with the police committee of
councils or they are in danger of losing
their heads. Such a system Is radically
and fatally wrong. The mayor Is help
less, however anxious he may be to re
form evils. If the mayor desires to spot
a suspicious house, or requires Informa
tion as to Its character, he cannot use
the police, but must engage private de
tectives at his' own expense. Such a
condition of things and such a system
are a disgrace "to a city like Wilkes
Barre. Tlie mayor says: "Some coun
cilmen will neither permit the officers
to report these houses nor aid me in
any way In the matter." Mayor
Nichols Is naturally restive and Indig
nant when he finds himself hampered
and Interferred with by officials who
ought to stand In with him In his every
effort to reform a great and crying
evil. A less plucky man would give up
the battle in disgulst. Public senti
ment Is with him, and It Is believed
a fund could be raised to be used by
him In the prosecution of his campaign
If he Is denied aid by council.

A HEAVY SENTENCE.
Hendricks Receives Twenty Years In the
Penitentiary Other Sentences.
Judge Woodward yesterday called up
James Hendricks, convicted of murder
In the second degree, and sentenced
him to twenty years solitary confine
ment at labor In the eastern peniten
tiary. The judge jtave the prisoner the
maximum sentence, which of Itself
proves that In the opinion of the court
he should have been convicted of mur
der in the first degree, an opinion that
prevails very generally. James Hen
dricks rejoiced and received the hearty
congratulations of his relatives when
the Jury brought In a verdict of murder
In the second degree. Yesterday there
was no rejoicing when, after earnest
pleas by his counsel for mercy, Judge
Woodward gave him the full sentence
the law permits. If Hendricks lives he
will be released In 1916, but even then
he will be only In middle life, for he Is
' now a young man. The public heartily
commends Judge Woodward for what
he has done. He made no remarks be
fore sentencing the prisoner, except to
say that he refrained because three
others were to be tried for the same
crime. . . .,
Judge Lynch sentenced Jack Savage,
a boy 19 years old, to one year and five
months In the penitentiary for burglary,
and Mike Tanslck to three months In
rthe county Jail for rape on a child.
'Judge Lynch said he had a doubt of the
latter's guilt, and for that reason made
the sentence as light as he could.
Law and Order League. ' '
The Wllkes-Barre Clerio met In the
First Presbyterian chapel yesterday
morning and twenty ministers of va
rious denominations were present. After
- devotional exercises and the transac
tion of some routine business, Rev. T.
A. Mills read a paper entitled "How
Far Should the Church Consider the
Social Needs of Man?"- The discussion
was participated In by Revs. Hodge,
Edwards, Morris, Wells and others. A
resolution was passed providing for the
Immediate organizing of a Law and
Order league, and Dr. Hodge and Dr,
Jones appointed a committee to In
form Secretary Fuller of this detcrml
The News-Denier somewhat pointed
ly Intimates that County Commission'
ers Smith and Norton have made It lm
possible for the Republicans to eloct a
majority of the next board of commis
sioners. The two commissioners named
havo probnbly made their own re-olec
tlon next year Impossible, but as neither
ot them enn bo re-nominated they will
not be an Issue. As to which party
will control the next board of com
missioners will depend entirely upon tho
kind of men nominated. Whichever
party names the best men that party
will Inevitably win. The Republican
party of Luzerne will not be held re
sponsible for the acts of the majority
commissioners now in office. The party
has not sanctioned nor endorsed nny
of their acts In the new court house
business, nor will It do so. On the con
trary. If the next county convention
shall be true to the party it will, in the
platform, denounce and disavow the
court house Jobbery.
Postmaster Landmesser has a little
less than one year to Bervo of his four
yearr." term. He hna been such an ad
mirable official that he will not be likely
to be disturbed until his four years
have expired. But the several nBDlr-
ants for his place are not going to wait
any longer than they must. Some of
them are getting the machinery Into
working order and mnklng themselves
solid with the bosses. Isaac Living
stone, one of the old Democratic war-
horses, is being urged by his friends to
enter the contest, and he will be heard
from when the time for action comes.

Bullet in tho Head.
Elmer Mertz, the Ashley boy who
last April received a bullet In his head
at the hands of a boy companion. Is in
a fair way to final and complete re
covery. The bullet remains lodged
somewhere in his head, the surgeon
having concluded to give nature a
chance. The ball ts a srrtall one and Is
supposed to be Imbedded 1n the 'boy's
brain. The attending physicians are
as greatly surprised as others at the
apparent complete recovery of their

At an early hour this morning Are

Mebane at Parsons, and the contents
of the building utterly ruined before
the flames were quenched. The doctor
occupied the same building as a resi
dence and his furniture and other
household effects were ruined by fire
and water. The family of E. P. Fel
lows also occupied a portion of the
building and they had a very narrow
escape, difficulty having been experl
eenced In arousing them.
To Make an Investigation.
Last Friday a Polish woman, Mrs.
Weronlka Hylla, died at Nantlcoke,
under circumstances that raised a sus
picion that she was the victim of mal
practice. County Detective Eckert di
rected an Investigation to be made, and
Deputy Coroner Perkins went to Nantl
coke to hold an inquest. The Inquest
was adjourned until this afternoon
when the physicians who made the au
topsy will make their report.
