principal of No. 36 school, aided the
scholars In their practical giving which
was so unexpected and so gratefully
received at the Home that the matron
and officers were almost unable to
properly express their gratitude.
From each school came three wagon
loads of groceries and provisions and a
considerable sum of money. ,
An Open Word of Advice.
The merchant who advertises In The
Tribune receives benefits that are sure
to tell in his dally cash book. If It
were possible, without appearing' ego
tistical, to publish the many letters of
acknowledgments we receive from ad

But this would be termed "blowing
your own horn," and we do not purpose
to tire the readers of The Tribune with
that kind of reading; to the exclusion
of the news. If you are a live mer

THIS AFTERNOON'S CLASH.
Gam of Foot Ball Between Sersnton and
This afternoon at the Base Ball park
will occur one of the hardest fought
foot ball games of the season: whether
It will be a good game or not. In a
technical sense can only be determined
by the game Itself, but that It will be
hard fought Is Indicated by circum
stances. Wyoming seminary is not by
any means represented by a slow team;
it Is composed of a lot of brawny,
active and heady fellows, who have
suffered no disgrace because of two
defeats by Scranton.
Scranton's victories were hard earn
ed, but that causes no less a chagrin
In the hearts of the Seminarians, and
today they are bound to win the last
of the three games In the series. This
Is what Indicates that the contest will
be a superb one. Not a little seminary
money was circulated yesterday In
Scranton at 4 to 6 on, and this Informa
tion coming to the Scranton players
along with the news of faithful train
ing and hopes of the Seminarians has
spurred the bicycle men to make It
three straight. Thus each side has
something at stake and it Is a safe
prediction that any enthusiast who
goes to the park to see a grim death
kind of a battle will be accommodated
to his heart's content The teams will
line up as follows:
Owens left end Robertson
Coggins left tackle McDermott
Cannery, (Capt.).left guard Decker
Cleveland center Johnson

Resolution Adopted fey the Board of
Revision and Appeals Containing
the Terms of the Concession
Served on the Assessors.'
The board of appeals has virtually ad
mitted that the assessors Up to date
have the best of the argument.
When Mr. Jones, In an interview pub
lished recently In The Tribune, stated
that the board of assessors could not
complete the assessment for 1896, owing
to the board of appeals' refusal to let
them have the 1895 books and the unre
liability of the 1895 blotters there was
an awakening among the board of ap
peals members to the fact that the re
sponsibility In case no assessment
should be made could be shifted to their
To obviate this the appeals board has
adopted and addressed to the board of
assessors the following preamble and
The Resolution Adopted.
Whereas. Tho board of city assessors
has declared its Inability to complete the
assessment for 1890 in the time required
by law because of the uncertainty of the
correctness of the assessment blotters
which are supposed to be copies of tho
lS9.r assessment books; and
Whereas, The act of assembly makes It
the duty of the board of revision of taxes
and appeals to furnish nil necessary
books for taking the assessments; there
fore be it
Resolved, By tho board of revision of
taxes and appeals, tlint the board of city
assessors be requested to return to the
oftice of said board of revision of taxes
and appeals any or all of the city assess,
ment blotters on which there Is any un
certainty as to their correctness; and
Resolved, That in order to expedite the
completion of the assessment upon re
ceiving the raid blotters the board of re.
vision of taxes and appeals Immediately
proceed to compare said blotters with said
lh. assessment books, and upon tha com
pletion of the comparison of each it be
returned to the sakl board of elty asses
sors Immediately; and be It further
Resolved, That the clerk Inform the said
board of city assessors that all assess
ment books are accessible to them at all
times at the olllce of the said board of re
vision of taxes and appeals.
Left nt Assessors' Office.
City Clerk Lavelle left a copy of the
above at the assessors' olllce yester
day, but as the board was engaged on
outside work It has not as yet hnd an
opportunity to meet and consider It.
Whether or not they will accept this
half way concession of the appeals'
board or stick to their determination
to let the assessment go by default
can only be known after they have
come tozether and reached some con
clusion. COR B Y.MAY MARRIAGE.

An Important Witness Has Been Socurcd
by Morelo In Boston.
Merelo, the Italian murderer In the
county Jail, received a letter yesterday
from a fellow countryman In Boston
saying that the writer of It would come
to Scranton and establish the Inno
cence of the prisoner by proving that
Merelo wss not in Scranton nor In the
United States in June, 1894,, when
Emanuel Loro wf.s shot at Old Forge.
The accused wrote a week ago to this
man, asking him to come here to testify
In his behalf.
In tlie letter tho friend, his name
Merelo will not dlvulsre, said that it
will be. Impossible for him to get here
next week, and on the strength of this
there will be an effort made to have
the case continued until the January
term of criminal court. By means of
papers from Italy the prisoner also
hopes to. be able to show that he was
over there when the murder was com
mitted. Notwithstanding his persistent de
nial of the commission of the crime
there are no less than fifteen wit
nesses for the commonwealth who pos
itively identify him.
