down by a Delaware, Lackawanna and
Western train, near Lackawanna, and
who was taken to the Lackawanna hes

fur whom the West Side constables
were looking at the time that the en
gine bore down upon him.
Shinger's home is on Scranton street.
Seven months ogo he was married to
an unusually handsome woman and on
their wedding day he assaulted his
bride. At that time the law laid its
hand liiion him. Tuesday night ho
again beat his wife nud the police were
summoned to the Slanger home. Mrs.
Slanger again caused a warrant to be
Issued for her husband's arrest.
When he constabh-s arrived at the
house Slanger had disanpeared and It
was while eluding the ofiicers that his
cruelty was avenged In another way.
Wednesday morning a relative of
Slanger called at Alderman Blair's of

the biggest crowd that ever packed the
council chamber was there. Kvery
avnilablc inch of space in the gallery

At one time there was a concerted rush
against this guarded portal and Mar

Chairman Sanderson jumiied from his

by the chairman's stentorian tones and
censed the crushing. Thin the door
was closed and only opened when mem

the members spent most of the time
In the select council's chamber, only

send out to bring in four or five of them
to make a quorum.
THOSE FIVE ENVELOPF.S.
While Clerk Lavelle was reading the
minutes. Secretary Beamish entered
with live envelopes In his hand and de
posited them on the clerk's desk. The
little stir and buzz of whispered con
versation which followed this was the
only token of Interest given by the
spectators during the three orders of
business which precede "communica
tions from the mayor and other heads
This order having been reached Clerk
Lavelle laid open the first envelope ami
read the appointment of P. J. Hlckey
to succeed H. P. Ferber as chief of the
lire department. Mr. McAndrew, the
member from the Twenty-first ward,
mnved to refer the nomination to the
fire department committee with In
structions to report forthwith. Mr.
Chittenden jumped to his feet with an
objection, raising the point of order
that this would be equivalent to a sus
pension of the rules and required a
The rule on the reception of appoint

drew's motion was a clever one to se
cure Immediate consideration on a ma
jority vote, by taking advantage of tiio
inadequacy of the rules. Mr. Manley
and Mr. Roche contended that while It
was true It required a two-thirds vote
to prevent th nomination from going
to committee there was nothing in the
rules to prohibit council from directing
by a majority vote a committee to re
Chairman Sanderson looked up the
rules but failed to And anything direct
ly covering the point. He stated, how
ever, that he had a hand in framing the
rules and it was his belief that the In
tent of the rule In question was mani
festly to give a committee adequate
time for the consideration of an ap
pointment and to do away with haste
in the matter. If the motion of the gen
tleman from the Twenty-first should
prevail, he said, it would nullify the In
tent of the rule, therefore he would
have to decide the point of order well
taken and declare the motion out of
APPEALED FROM DECISION.
Messrs. McCann and Kearney ap
pealed from the decision of the chair.
Mr. Roche said he was surprised at
the action of the chnirman. A com
mittee, he at gucd, can report at any
time. The chair very sarcastically re
marked that it regretted having occa
sioned Mr. Roche any surprise and add
ed that the only matter before- the
house was the appeal.
The motion was then put "shall the
decision of the chair stand notwith

an Investigation should be made of Mr.

HAD A NARROW ESCAPE.
That Patrolman Islah F. Jones was
not among last night's victims was
somtwhat of a surprise to those who
were aware of the pre-arranged pro
gramme. Jones was slated for dismis
sal and a man said to be John C. Roche,
of the Seventh ward, was selected for
his place. Yesterday afternoon at 2
o'clock. Patrolman Joseph Block was
sent down to the corner of Spruce street
and Washington avenue with instruc
tions to relieve Jones, who was doing
duty there and order him to report at
headquarters. Jones went to headquar
ters and there learned that he was
wanted upstairs In the mayor's office.
Just what happened Is not a njatter
of record, but Jones did not receive a
request for his resignation, like Mc
Hale, Lew's and Coleman, who had
been called up previously. Rumor had
It that "Babe," as he Is familiarly
called, was not the man whose scalp
was wanted. They had made a mis
take In the "Jones," there being four of
them on the force. Later It developed
that this rumor was Incorrect; that
Islah F. was the Intended victim, but
he secured a resnlte through the Influ
ence of a friend, who had not been
counted on by the powers-that-be.
When James Coleman was called up
he refused to resign telling the mayor
that he had been on the force scarcely
long enough to pay for his equipment.
Tom Lewis simply felt that he was
well pleased with his position of patrol
man and could not willingly give It up.
TRIBUNE WAS RIGHT.
Ex-Patrolman McHale met Mayor
Ballev on the street yesterday and
asked him If it was true aa The Tri
bune stated that ho was to be dismissed.
The mayor told him that The Tribune
spoke aright. .
To a further Inquiry as to the cause
of his dismissal the mayor did not hesi

had worked against him when a candi

THE BEST JNTHE STATE
Thirteenth Regiment Has the Highest
IT HAS ALSO ANOTHER HONOR
Companies A aad B Are First aad Second
Best Respectively 1st tho State.
Timely DicoTrjr bf Col. Coar
sen of an Error in Figures.
Scrantonlar.s will be proud to know
that the Thirteenth regiment if the
premier regiment of the National Guard
of Pennsylvania. Its general average
and figure of etliolency Is 91.06. which is
the best ami another congratulatory
fact Is that Company A ranks the high
est In the state and Company D second.
The former's average is ilfi.49 and that
of the latter Is ifi.77.
Last Se-itemlwr when, general order
No. 30 was Issued from headquarters
the ratings of every company of the
Thirteenth, In everything except ritle
practice, were published and the figures
showed that the regiment had far sur
passed the other commands In the state.
In March, however, the adjutant gen
eral's report was published. It Includ
ed the ratings for rifle practice and th'
figures showed that the Thirteenth had
fallen behind in this branch of their
military training. The figures as they
appeared were not accepted as facts by
Colonel H. A. Coursen.
FOUND A MISTAKE.
He was averse to believing that the
regiment could receive in ritle practice
such a poor mark that It would lower
the general average nnd throw the reg
iment from first to second place. So
he decided to make an, Investigation.
After a tedious search through tho rec
ords he found an error In the r-!Krt
of Inspector General Edward Morell, of
Philadelphia. Mr. Morell had not cred
ited either Company A or Company (1
with their Just averages. It was a
mathematical mistake, done Inadvert
ently, and, of course, was not Intention
al The big drop In the averages is
what made Colonel Coursen doubt the
figures and Impelled him to verify them.
He communicated his discovery to
Adjutant General Stewart und waited
for an order correcting the error. Not
having received any after waiting five
weeks he went to Harrisburg Wednes
day to Inquire Into the silence of the
department on such an Important mut
ter. For an answer he was handed a copy
of general order No. it. Issued May 5.
Section VI of the order read as follows:
"The Inspector general reports the cor
rection of an error In computing the
general average and figure of elllclency
of the Thirteenth Regiment Infantry.
The figure of erllclency of Company A
should read 96.49; and the general aver
age and figure of elllclency of Company
(1 should each be 92.80. These correc
tions will make the gpneral average
and figure of erllclency of the Thirteenth
regiment 94.06 instead of 92.81 as pub
lished." GIVES IT FIRST PLACE.
Tho correction of the error, while it
throws the regiment Into first place,
lowers Company D from first to second.
It was first in the state until the cor
rect average of Company A was esti
mated and credited.
Colonel Coursen intends to address a
letter of congratulation to the boys of
A and the members of the regiment In
general in a few days.
