Business uf Importance was trans
acted at the meeting of the Scranton
poor board yesterday afternoon. Every
member was present. The report of
the finance committee recommending
a fiur-m!U tax levy was adopted, and
the' estimate of the money necessary
to suppcrt the district for the fiscal
year 18S6 was based upon the valuation
cf property as adjusted by the county
commissioner?. In the city of Scran
ton the valuation amounts to
and in Dunmore to $1,439,002, the total
belntr r8,17.166. The tax on this at
four mills will be J74.46S.fcG.
From stal? aid the district will de
rive about $14.iXK). This amount was
not forthcoming in former years and
the board had to pet uimsg with n fuur

Architect F. L. Amsden had a set of
plans for a chu.)ul and the members
looked over them. It will have a seat
ing capacity of X'5 and will be an edi
fice of very Imposing build. It has al
ready been stated that the cost of
erecting it will be about $8,000. The
plans were adopted and Mr. Amsden
was Instructed to prepare the specifi
cations. When these are ready Secre
tary E. J. Lynett will advertise for
bids. The Inmates at the home now
worship In the linl! on the third story
of the main building. John Gibbons,
when he was on the board, was the
one who first thought of the advisabil
ity of erecting a chapel.
At the suggestion of Mr. Fuller the
bonds of ex-Treasurer Jones, whose
accounts have been audited and found
correct, were ordered cancelled and his
sureties released from their obligations.
Air. Fuller brought up the subject for
consideration with reference to the ad
justment of the treasurer's accounts.
The outgoing treasurer's term expires
on the first of the year and his succes
sor does not qualify until a few weeks
later. The former must necessarily
discharge the duties of the office until
the new one qualifies; and the question
was raised as to which of the treasur
ers is entitled to the commission on
the disbursements made during the in
terregnum. The disposition made of
the matter was to instruct the secre
tary to open two accounts; one with
the outgoing treasurer for the short
time he will be In office and the other
with the new treasurer for the remain
der of the year.
A bill for $13 came before the board
for medicine furnished to Mr. Ken
diick. of Eynon street, ttte man about
whom P. J. Mullaney, of the West Slue,
appeared before the board a few meet-
liiss ago. When Dr. W. A. Paine was
dismissed by the Kendrick family, they
engaged the services of Dr. 8. P. Fein
berg, who attended Kendrick and or
dered medicine for him. The bill for
the medicine was sent to the board for
pavment and it amounted to $13. ' The
directors thought the amount was
pretty steep, and coming to Investigate
the Items they found that about half
of it was for brandy. The bill was re
ferred and the items for stimulants will
likely te eliminated before it will be
paid. "
Mrs. Kendrick, wife of the afore
mentioned patient, appeared before the
board for relief. Dr. Paine will Inves
tigate and has power to act. Bridget
Jones, of Beech street, asked for help.
Her 1 u.ilund deserted her a year ago
and has not contributed a cent toward
her support since. Her request was
granted. Mrs. Sarah McNally, of Four
teenth street, who has a sick husband
we.nted help and she was offered the
r. Pi'Hnllly of the home for himself and
herxtlf, which she refused.
Mrs. Rebecca Adams, of the South
Side, was admitted to the home, but
it nearly broke her heart to accept the
charity of the public. Her husband
died u year ago yesterday.
Benjamin Freeley, of Park Place, a
teamster who was no sooner better af
ter a spell of Idleness with a broken
arm than an attack of bloodpolsonlng
affected him from getting struck with
a horseshoe nail, applied for relief and
was granted It. Secretary Lynett read
a letter from the house surgeon of the
Philadelphia almshouse, where John
Noonan, son elf Patrick Noonan, of
Meridian street, is a. patient. They
want to send young Noonan back here
as he is a charge on this district, or
else receive pay for his attendance.
The report of Superintendent George
W. Beemer showed that there are 16!)
paupers at present in the almshouse.
The report of Dr. B. F. Evans, resident
physician, showed that there are 166
patients in the asylum. Seven were
received and four discharged in the
month of March. The repnrt of Out
door Physician Strang showed that
there are thirteen patients in his dis
trict; he visited them .fifty-eight times,
wrote forty-one prescriptions. There
was 'one death. Outdoor Physician
Uunster repotted that he made sixty
seven visits, examined four Insane pa
tlerfts, and attended one birth. Out
