Increase-Bids for No. 10.
Twelve mills was last night fixed by
the board of control as the tax levy for
the ensuing year, an increase of two
mills over last year.
The large number of new improve
ments projected during the past twelve
months, the Increase in the bonded in
debtedness consequent of the building
of the high school and the fact that
there was a deficit Inst year and will
be an increase this year-in teachers'
salaries, coupled with the fact that the
city's taxable valuation has remained
almost stationary, are the reasons ad
vanced for the necessity of making this
extremely lurge increase in the tax
These reasons are fully set forth In
the report of the ilnance committee,
which Is appended:
'ciat:ton. Pa.. April 27,
"To the President mid Members of the
Scranton Hoard of Control:
"t'entlenien The finance committee
bejr leave to submit the following re
"We hnve carefully examined the ac
counts of the district for the past two
years ami find that there Is a gradual
grow th in our expenditures from year
to yeur. owing to the Increased attend
ance which necessitates the employ
ment of more teachers and a gradual
inerense in salaries owing to length of
servh-e. We have also ascertained that
the valuation upon which to make the
tax levy for the coming year will be but
very little In excess of tho valuation of
Inst year. After going over tho va
rious Items and cutting the appropria
tions to the very lowest possible figure,
we liml that the requirements for tho
ensuing school years wi'l b? in follows:
AMOFNTS 1 5 KCO MMKNDEH.

properly chnrgenlde to the general
school account, we recommend the fol

Pteam fur new blah school

Printing and advertising
"Deducting from this sum an esti
mated state appropriation of $83,000,
there remains to be raised by taxation
for general school purposes the sum of
$126,100. The assessed valuation of
property and occupations will be ap
proximately $20,000,000. We recom
mend that a 6V6 mill levy be made for
general school purposes, which, after
deducting 3 per cent, for commissions
and exonerations, will produce $U'C.100,
which is the exact amount required to
meet the above named expenditures.
"The amount of school bonds out
standing is $2S0,000. The law requires
that an annual levy for Interest and
sinking fund purposes shall be made
upon the assessed valuation of the
property In the district which shall pro
duce a sum equal to at least S per cen
tum of the bonded Indebtedness. This
requires an annual revenue for this
purpose, that is. for the payment of in
terest and the accumulation of a fund
for the redemption of the bonds at ma
turity of $22,400. We therefore recom
mend that a levy of IVi mills be made
upon the assessed valuation of the
property In the district, via.: $18,7.r0,000,
which, after allowing 3 per cent, for
commissions and exonerations, will
produce for the Interest and sinking
fund account the sum of $22,734.38.
FOIl Ul'ILDINi! PUKPOSKS.
"In making the levy for building pur
poses, tho committee have borne In
mind the numerous needed Improve
ments, such as the purchase of lots In
the Second and Kighth wards, and the
erection ,of buildlngu nnd additions
thereto In the First, Second. Eighth and
Thirteenth wards; but owing to the
buildings already contracted for and
authorized during the past year, viz.:
Nog. 10. 16 and 23, Involving the ex
penditure of a sum of money exceeding
the balance of the building appropria
tion for the past year and the total
amount of the levy about to be made,
we recommend that the improvements
above named in the First, Second,
Kighth nnd Thirteenth wards be post
poned until another year, and that they
be the first considered
In making the
levy for 1S9'
"The building committee have placed
before us the following estimates:

For the erection of No. 23 18.000
"After completing Nos. 13 and 19 It is
estimated thnt there will be a balance
in the building accvjnL of $10,000. We
must therefore raise by taxation $S4.Soo

health authorities, as the disease Is not
of it violent nature, only one death re

other good circumstance Is that the
cases are not confined to any one lo

rious parts of the city, showing that
there Is no epidemic, but merely nn

There were three new cases of diph

actress and clever musician, adds much
vigor to the performance. The show
abounds In musical outbursts. "The
Fairy Hells" Is pretty, und a descrip

awakens vivid recollections in those
who saw the world's fair. Miss Carroll
plays a line solo on the oboe. Then
music is extracted from the twists of
ox horns, saxaphones and other Instru

given is the mandolin selection from
"11 Trovatore." Throughout the play
there Is a Hunt and amusing plot and
In addition a burlecque dramatic sketch

and ex-Judges W. II. Jcssup and II. A.

CAl'SK OF THE Sl'lT.
The Wlnton Coal company brought
suit against the defendant for the vulue
of a certain quantity of coal mined,
amounting to about $40,000, and claimed
thnt the right and title to nn undivided
Interest representing this amount was
vested In them nnd not In the defend
ant. The case was tried last January
and the jury found a verdict for the de
fendant. The arguments yesterday
were for a new trial.
Attorney I. H. Burns nrgued to strike
off tho nonsuit In the action of trespass
brought by Mrs. John Lilly against
the city of Scranton. Mrs. Lilly was
thrown out of her carriage on June 5,
ISiiil, opposite No. 41 Lackawanna, ave

RUNS IIAVU BEEN CHANGED.
New Train Arrangement on the Central
Kuilrond of New Jersey.
At the last chansre of time table on
the Jersey Central a change was also
made In tho rVews on passenger runs.
The runs used to be from Jersey City
to Kaston, Easton to Mauch Chunk
and Mauch Chunk to Scranton and re
turn. Now. however, three crews are
run through without change dally from
Jersey City to Mauch Chunk and re
turn, while two crews are run dally
from Mauch Chunk to Jersey City ami
return. These crews make five round
triiis per week, then lay off two days
and get a week's pay for their work.
The conductors do not like this change
very much, as they used to cover about
150 miles for a trip and work six days,
while now they have to cover about 240
miles for n trip of five days per week.
They would naturally rather work
under the old order. Milton Weller nnd
Joe Klbler are the upper end conductors
affected by this change. Conductor
llerkhelser, of Jersey City, is one of the
lower end men In the change. Mr.
Eerkhelser used to run an express
train, but now he runs the newspaper
train out of Jersey City and makes all
the stops to Mauch Chunk. The runs,
however, will probably be more pleas
ant as the men become accustomed to
the same, ns It gives them two whole
dnyj to themselves each week.

will be seen in "A Uay Old Hoy" as a

stated in her will that her property
