FRANCHISES ARE INVALID
SoSays Councilman Kochc Concerning
Valley Passenger Railway.
WHOLE VALLEY IS AFFECTED
Mr. Roche Speaks Out in Meeting Aboat
Matter Which lias Been Whispered
About of Late-Both Branches
of Council In Session.
In considering the ordinance for the
Valley iPaasenger Mailway company's
proposed extension to Petersburg iu se
lect council last nlifht Mr. Roche
touched upon a matter which has been
mentioned only in a whisper hereto
fore. It Is the nvalldlty of the valley
Passenger railway company's fran
chises undtr which the Scranton Trac
tion company Is now oeratliiK miles
of electric railways in this city.
LMr. Roche suid that the franchises
were invalid because of a recent de
cision of court which held that u street
railway company must necessarily se
cure the right of way over the entire
length of Its proposed line before It can
make use of any of the privileges
grunted by any -lty, borough or town
along Its route. The Valley Passenger
company, Mr. 'Roche sum, hud se
cured the right of way over Scranton
streets on the strength of their inten
Hon to construct a road) up and down
the valley. They fulled to secure many
of the franchises which wvre necessary
for the completion of the original plans,
consequently, not having carried out
their expressed intentions, the tain
chlses which they did secure revert to
the city, borough or town which grant
Contention of Mr. Wagner.
Mr. Wagner contended that the law
only applied to townships and bor
oughs, butlMr. Roche, who had evident
ly anticipated this objection, stated
that he hud consulted a lawyer upon
thut very point and hud been given as
surance that Mr. Wagner's interpreta
tion was not correct.
Mr. 'Roche explained that his object
In bringing this matter to the atten
tion of councils was that the councils
might provide against future contln-
gi'iicles which 'might arise If the law
was strictly enforced. One of these
contingencies Is that in case the street
railway company is compelled to tear
up Its tracks the city will be liable for
dumugc to pavements, which are luid
at property holders' private expense.
The matter was too Important for
nasty consideration so council let It
pass for the present, unil also passed
the franchise ordinance with a few
amendments, chief among which were
provisions for paving twelve Inches on
each side of both tracks and compelling
ine company to give transfers on In
tersecting as well as connecting lines.

Just before the close of the afternoon
session. Delegates were assigned

Tho feature of the evening session
was an address by Miss Elizabeth
Yates, of Maine, one of the most elo
quent members of the union.
Listened to with Interest
Miss Yates was listened to with In
tense Interest as she gave an historical
discourse on the various' movements
of the temperance cause, from the first
sermon preached In .Maine In 1786 to the
Washington 'movement, touching Inci
dentally upon the John B. Clough and
Francis Murphy crusades. She proved
very clearly that total abstinence was
the only salvation and characterized
the crusade as a wonderful movement.
There was, she said, no greater evi
dence that Ood answers prayer than
that which followed that great crusade
In the formation of the Women's Chris
tian Temperance union.
The license system was well ventilat
ed. She argued that -high or low li
cense never diminished the 'drink traf-
fic. Defense system was ' no remedy,
she raid. Prohibition was Hhe best
means brought to bear for the suppres
sion of the saloon. Liquor men'a asso.
ciatlona furnish thousands of dollars
to defeat the Prohibition amendment
In various states, showing how thv
dread its effect. -"--
Enfranchisement for Women.
Enfranchisement of woman la neces
sary for the destruction of the saloon.
Law Is not automatic, It must be backed
by a live constitution. A, prohibiting
law will become as a rusty aword unless
It Is wielded by officers of the law.
What we need la not public eentlmtnt,
but personal conviction to make law
effective. The great lesson to learn is
that unless we destroy the liquor traf
fic it will destroy us. Lessons of history
teach us that we are not too young, as
a nation, to die for our sins.
Miss Y'ates closed with an appeal to
temperance people to cease being pas
sive side and become aggressive.
Today the annual reports of the su
perintendents will be heard, and offi
cers for the next year elected. Mrs. W.
Frank and Mrs. O. L. Field will lead
