WEST SIDE EVENTS.
Hoard of Trad Of fieevs Soluui-ii
Effort to Paw Wast Laekawaaaa
Avease to Ba Mad.
The 'West Bide board of trade met
last evening and nominated offlcera for
the next term. For president. E. M.
Clarke and T. F. Mason were named;
for vice-president. Dr. P. F. Struppler;
for secretary. C. K. Daniels: for treas
urer. William FarrelL The election will
take place at the next monthly meet
ing of the board. Many things of in
terest to the West Side were touched
upon and action taken In several in
stances. The board, by motion, ap
proved the practice of "flushing" the
streets as a way to remove dirt. The
attention of the street commissioner to
streets on this side was called. It was
resolved that a pave be laid on West
lackawanna avenue hill. This means
that the Traction company shall re
move its useless tracks on that thor
oughfare. Other Traction company
matters were discussed.
The board still cherishes the hope
that a viaduct will be erected over the
Delaware, Lackawanna and Western
tracks. Mayor Bailey's outspoken ap
proval of the plan has encouraged the
members. Last night they asked the
Traction company to double-track
Weat Lackawanna avenue f r. m Frank
lin to Seventh and from the latter street
to leave the single track now In use
with the forethought that the viaduct
will eventually reach form Seventh to
Ninth. The matter of the new belt
line was discussed. The boaid also
urged the Traction company to open
the line connecting Providence and

and will follow the next meeting of the
board, the place to be selected later.

COUNTY TO PAY ASSESSORS
Concluded from Page 1
The act of M34 and Its supplements pro
vide for the valuation of property and tha
registration of voters. The 111th section
of the act of April 13, A. D. 1SS7 (P. U 41).
provides for the enrolment of persons nt
for military duty. Tha act of June C A.
D. 1S93, provides for the registration of
births and deaths by the district assessor.
In the performance of all these duties the
assessors act under the supervision of the
county commissioners and make a return
to them of all work done under the provis
ions of law.
In my view of the Question, section 4 of
the compulsory school law, requiring the
assessors to make an enumeration of
school children between the ages named,
is an enlargement of the powers and du
ties of district assessors, and, since the
work is done under the supervision of the
county commissioners by authority of law,
it seems to be a reasonable conclusion that
the county is liable for the payment or
the services rendered by the assessors.
This construction is strengthened by the
fact that the district assessor makes the
enumeration of school children at the same
time he makes a valuation of property for
purposes of taxation and a registration
of voters. The county is certainly liable
for the time spent by the assessor In mak
ing a valuation or property ana regis.
1 ration or voters, and. since tne reclaim
Hon of school children is made at the
same time, it would be very difficult to
decide what portion of his time was spent
In making the valuation of property ami
how much of it was left to be devoted
to the registration of school children. If
the county should be held not liable to"
the payment of the services of assessors
under the compulsory school law, then
would we have the anomalous situation
of an assessor being paid by the county
for part or a day spent in making a val
uation of property for the purposes of tax
ation and the registration of voters,
while part of the same day, spent in the
enumeration of school children by tho
same officer, could not be paid out of the
county funds: This certainly was not the
Interpretation of this act of assembly.
This position Is substantially sustained In
the case of Corr vs. Lackawanna county,
lt P. S. 67.
EQUITY BUT NOT LAW.
It Is argued, with some force, that the
compulsory school luw concerns cities,
boroughs and townships, and that the
county should not be liable for the en
forcement of any of its provisions. While
there may be something of equity In this
position, it is legally unsound. The same
objection could be raised as to the pay
ment of assessors who make a valuation
of the property in a district. It Is the cus
tom of nearly every school district In the
commonwealth to take the valuation of
property made by the assessor and re
turned to the county commissioners as the
basis of the tax levied for school pur
poses. It has never been contended, how
ever, that the county should not pay tin
assessor for his servives in making the
valuation of property because the school
district received the benefit of that ser
vice and made Its assessment of taxes
upon the valuation thus made. It was no
doubt the Intention of the framers of the
compulsory school law to provide an
easy and convenient method of obtaining
Hie enumeration of the school children of
each district between the ages of elijht
slid thirteen years. It was apparent lo
Die legislative body that this could b
most readily done by the assessors at the
sume time they performed their other du
ties. Hence tho law Imposed this addi
tional burden upon the district assessors
imJ required that they should make re
turn of their work to the county commlu
sloners, and provided the same compen
sation for that service as for other ser
vices umler the law. To hold, under
these circumstances, that the county Is
not liable for the payment of the district
assessors in making the enumeration of
school children, would be doing violence to
every principle of justice and to all rules
ouncernlng the Interpretation of stat
utes. I am of opinion, therefore, that the dis
trict assessor, In making the enumera
tion of school children and returning tho
same to the county commissioners, under
the provision of the compulsory school
law, Is entitled 1o receive his per diem
compensation for this service, taken in
connection with such other services as
hi performs under the authority of law,
out of the funds of the proper county.

AMENDMENTS TO CONSTITUTION.
The amendments to the constitution
were read by Mr. Wheeler and were
approved of, but the ratification of
them was left over until the May meet
ing. The most Important change Is
that which relates to the degrees of
membership. Heretofore the Institute
was made up of life members, who paid
in $100 and were absolved from the pay
ment of dues; active members, who
paid $5 a year; honorary and Junior
The new plan is to confer the degree
of patron on any person who gives
$1,000 to the institute. Such person can
hand down that degree to any person
he wishes, bv whom It may be trans
mitted further to posterity and so on
ad infinitum. Tha second degree of
fellow, which is conferred upon anyone
who donates $500. This' degree runs
only to two generations. The third de
gree is that of life member upon pay
ment of $100, the same as now, and
the fourth degree Is that of annual
member, whose yearly dues are $5.
Any person can be admitted to any
of these decrees who will give to the
institute specimens or any other thing
iwiee tne value of tha amount of money
necessary to obtain the degree. The
junior membership will be abolished al
together, and the honorary membership
must pe recommended by three-fourths
of the board of trustees. This is to cut
off the practice of many members who
get up in meetings and because they
think A. or 11. is a good fellow, they
move that he be admitted to honorary
