Criticisms of the Board of Trado
The recent criticism of the Scranton
Traction company system which was
Included In a report of the pilic safety
committee of the bonrd of trade has
called forth the following communica
tion from J. P. Illsley, the company's
The Scranton Traction company,
Scranton, Pa., March 21, 18.
To th Citizens of Scranton:
My attention has been called to the
report of a committee of the board of
trade upon the aiTuirs of this company,
saying upon investigation, etc., "It finds
several objections to the present sys
tem, but deems It wise to mention but
four of them at this time."
Now it Is fair play for a committee
representing such an important body to
make an Investigation, without consult'
ing either the manager of the company
or any of Its otllcers, and discussing
such suggestions as would, In their
opinion, he to the Interest of the public,
and ascertain how thev could be car
lied out? For whatever conduces to
the Interest of the public In getting from
one portion of the city to another is for
the interest of this company, and any
suggestion made to the manager will
be thankfully received, frankly dis
cussed, and, If practicable, carried into

Thieves Gain' Access to the Safe of At

Thieves entered the law office of At
torney Oeorge D. Taylor in Liberty hall
during Friday night or early Saturday
morning. They gained access to the
office through a sky-light. The safe
door had been left unlocked, which per
mitted the visitors to ransack the con
tents. The papers were of a great deal
of value to the owner, but It could not
be stated by Attorney Taylor Saturday
that any of the documents were taken,
although they were scattered promiscu
ously about the office.
That same' nlsht a fruit stand kept
by an Italian near Liberty hall was
entered and a ouantity of fruit and
cigars taken. No arrests have been
made. It is supposed both Jobs were

much so that Coroner LoiiRstreet wus

Its forehead and face beaten almost to

morning. Ciishkn, with blood stains
on the luoel and skirt of his light col

crowd of curious spectators surrounding
the body while Coroner Longstreet was
conducting his Investigation, and as he
did not satisfactorily answer the coro

made by relatives of Mrs. Mlckus,
whose fondness for Grishka. It Is be

efforts, were detected In the corridor by
Deputy t-'oroner Dr. Pennypacker out
side the arbitration room, where the
inquest, which wus continued from
Wednesduy night, was being held.' He
reported the occurrence to the coroner.
The bribers were not aoorehended, but
