parks fortifying bin arguments by ref
erence to numerous clippings he car
ried with him. He made out u strong
cuse for public parks ua will be seen
by reference to 'a portion of his dis
sertation, which follows:
NEED OP PUBLIC PARKS.
"Much has been written und said
nbuut Scranton's need of pinks. It Is
uu unquestionable fact thut public
purks niul playgrounds are onn of the
most iinportunt factors In the real prac
tical development of cities. Commu
nion with nature Is alwuya elevating
and the ec.d done to the overworked
denizens of crowded city streets In wan
dering through green pastures and be
side mill waters Is Incalculable. The
mind Is purltted. the eye is educated,
the heart delighted and the tired body
refreshed. Innocent pleasure and
healthful exercise lire combined In a
pure und bracing air, and It can be
truly said that u park is the heart free
beating-, the lungs free breathing; of a
"No further argument Is needed to
prove the paucity of parks In this
city than to state that only a com
parative few acres are now devoted to
such uses, less than many cities of
like size. The pecuniary benefit of
parks to surrounding: property Is clear
ly demonstrated. New York city with
Its maKnlliceiit and expensive Central
park, In a good example. In 1856 the
assessed valuation of the three wards
adjoining the park was $J.4.r.ti. In
1S7:I it had increased to jL'M.USl.Dlii. a
gain in seventeen years of I21S.C31.9SV.
SOME INTERESTING FHU'HES.
"The natural average Increase of
three other wards In the city, when all
the wards had been uveraged, Was $53.
U0U.0OU, making the enitilng capacity of
the park for that period JilSH.USl.515.
Now In these figures our city fathers
can get n little horse sense in making
their appropriations for our own city
park purposes. You say. 'Oh. what
comparison has New York city - with
other cities or vice versa?' We will bee.
In Brooklyn. In 1S6I, When Prospect
park, with Its live hundred and fifteen
acres of land was acquired, the as
sessed valuation of the three neighbor
ing wards was $19,!)4.31l!i, and at the
end of three years the valuation had
risen thirty-eight per cent, or over $T,
UOU.OW. which, by the way, was twice
the cost of the land which had been
"The same can already be said of
Woodlawn park of our city. With the
adjoining- lots but half sold the income
to the city by the ItiHuence of this
park will far exceed any outlay the
city has made and with the valuation
of the property adjoining this park go
ing up, us It is bound to, then much
revenue will be realized. Nay Aug
park is rapidly bringing the same result
to the city's credit. Why not then In
the name of common sense and busi
ness principles do mote for the parks?
Council's park Is the oldest in the city
and yet it is not a quarter of a score
years since trie first appropriation of a
meager Sl.UUU a year was made. Nev
ertheless is being transformed Into
beauty and attractiveness.
BOSTON STATISTICS CITED.
"The eleventh annual report of the
park commission of Boston contains
a comprehensive and exhaustive exhib
it of the increase of valuation result
ing from the 'Back Bay' improvement.
It shows an Increase of value from
1ST" to 1X85 of tll.U3u.441. and an Increase
In revenue of $I5-'.77:S. The value of
new buildings erected upon this terri
tory in the same period was J9.SStf.9W
from which In ISSj the city derived un
Income of JlliT.WW. making a total In
crease revenue of taxes (and corres
ponding value of land) of $1:80,734.
"In Brookline, Muss., a town of M.uon
inhabitants, the pecuniary advantuge
of parks Is thus spoken of by the secre
tary of the park board of that town:
'Beacon street was widened Into a park
way (similar to our Woodlawn park,
which cost our city nothing) at a cost of
tlilu.OOU. In six years the Increase In
assessed values of land on each side of
the street, throughout its entire length,
and for an approximate distance of only
SUV foet from the side line, is $4.XV.4UO.
with no allowance for uny Increase in
other property that was naturally bene
fited by the Incident thereto. Beacon
parkway Is, therefore, paying for Itself
long before its most zealous advocates
thought It would, and Is a striking
proof that well considered plans for
large public improvements pt this kind
are profitable ventures.'
THEY' ARE NECESSITIES.
"These facts are becoming" more evi
dent every year, and In his late mes
sage to the legislature, ex-Uovernor
AVerts, of New Jersey, thus ably epitom
ised them: 'The setting aside of tracts
of land for public parks, as places of
public recreation, rest and enjoyment,
has come to be regarded as a necessity
lather than a mere convenience. They
conduce to the public health., promote
the general happiness und encourage
citizenship. As public Investments
they are remunerative and profitable.
Experience has proved that the in
creased valuations In the vicinity of a
well-regulated park will soon more than
pay the cost of the original investment.'
"Now Is the time for Scranton to pre
pare for the future and secure other
park Bites. The park commissioners
should be allowed at least a sufficient
amount of money to moke a more cred
itable showing In Nay Aug park to
this growing city's credit. Governor
Wert, who has given this subject a
careful study, would extend the pow
ers of such commission even further;
to quote again from his message: 'Pro
visions should also be made that the
commissioners may sell or exchange
any lands by them purchased or ac
quired. If It be found more advantage
ous to sell or exchunge the same, Im
posing such restrictions and limitations
upon the land sold or exchanged as they
may deem fit and proper.'
HAVE UOOD PARK LAW3.
"This, with other good park provi
sions, has been passed by the legisla
ture of New Jersey, and now they have
food park laws and under the Influence
of these laws Essex county. New Jer
sey, is making some grand improve
ments. "All of the sites needed for park pur
poses should be secured by the park
commissioners under direction of the
councils before the onward mutch of
settlement drives nature further and
further away, for the keen eye of the
leul estate speculator Is every year
making land mole difficult und expen
sive fur park purposes."

USED ON FRED MINK
Tracing the Bullet He Received in the
IT PROMISES TO BE SUCCESSFUL
The Test Was Made I pon Mini at the
Lackawanna Hospital Last Night.
The Radiographs Will Be Developed
This Morning by Photographer Fred
Hummler- Wonderful Illustrations
Made with the Xltays.
Through the courtesy of Dr. Blanch
ard. house surgeon at the Lackawanna
hospital, a Tribune reporter was pres
ent lust night In the operating room
w hen a test was made with the X-rays
upon Special Ottlcvr Frederick Mink,
who curries neur his heart a bullet re
ceived in the Ruthveu riot at Dun
more on March 24 last.
There Is ery reason to believe thut
the Roentgen discovery will enable the
doctors to See Just where the lead Is
located In Mr. Mink, und with such
knowledge they can readily extract It
and relieve him of the continuous suf
fering that he has experienced since
the shot was tired.
Fred Alyn, of New York, Is the gen
tleman who made the test, aud he was
assisted by Dr. Blunchard, Photograph
er Fred Hummler and August Humm
ler, of the Illuminating Heat and Pow
er company. On Tuesday evening the
first test was made but the plates did
not develop satisfactorily yesterday,
uud lust night a second trial was made.
Mr. Alyn Is confident that from it a
good radiograph may be obtained, lo
cating the bullet In Mr. Mink's body.
The X-rays were generated from an
inductlun coll, which lengthened out in
linear measure would be six and une
lialf miles. The current was taken
from the wire that supplies the incan
descent lights In the hospital. How
ever, the suine strength of current was
not used. There was a subtraction of
current necessary to light twenty-four
ordinary Incandescent lamps, five of
which were one aud one-half times
more candle :oWer than the others.
CL'RRENT WAS DIVIDED.
After passing through the coll the
curTeiit was divided and let out on two
fine coils which entered at opposite
ends Into a Crooks' tube, a glass tube,
about us large us an ordinary tea cup.
The current forming a contact In the
tube produced the X-rays.
Mr. Mink was seated on the operat
ing table and a plate which Is used In
these tests was applied close to his
chest and held in place by bandages
uround his body. The rays were placed
about Fix Inches from his back, and In
that position he sat for forty minutes.
Later he was subjected to another test
cf shorter duration on a more sensitive
plate. Both plates will be developed
this morning by Mr. Alyn and Photo
While Mr. Mink sat and the X-rays
were directed upon him, Mr. Alyn gave
some very Interesting Illustrations to
those present. He had a fluoroscope,
through which one could see the bones
of his hand by placing the hand be
tween the light and the fluoroscope,
looking through the latter. - The fluoro
scope is shaped like a milk pitcher. It
has a bottom composed of aluminum.
By looking Into It In a manner similar
to the way opera glasses are used, one
can see any foreign substance placed
before the rays.
The question Is, What are foreign
substances? Boards and leather are
not, neither Is the human flesh and
muscle, and glass Is only the very least
Inclined to come under the head of for
elgn in X ray technlcology. Mr. Alyn
placed the fluoroscope before the eyes,
and between It and the X ray lamp he
heald a leather pocketbook containing
a key. Nothing but the key could be
Then he took a large book and put
the key somewhere about the middle
page. The book was closed and held
up before the light. Only the key could
be seen. After that he placed three
boards, taken from a soap box, and one
over the other placed them between
the fluoroscope and the book. The key
lslde could be seen just the same.
These were only a few of the Illustra
tions, but they were sufficient to dispel
the doubts of the most skeptical. Mr,
Mink was between the rays and a plate
thut receives impressions. The rays
will throw upon the plate dark outlines
of the foreign substances within their
focus. On that plate the only foreign
substances which could be Impressed
are the bones of the trunk of his body
and the bullet, wherever It Is. His
muscular tissues and his lungs and
heart will not show on the plate. The
rays penetrate them and leave no im
presslon, but the rays do not penetrate
bones nor metal, and that Is how the
bullet can be discovered.
While the test was going on Mr. Mink
sat without saying a Word, although It
was extremely tiresome and painful In
the position he was placed, though he
was as comfortable as he could be made.
The scar where the bullet entered Is in
the center of his back a few Inches be
low the shoulder blades and Is an Inch
to the left of the spinal column. It
went In a slanting direction toward his
left side, and Is lodged around the heart
In the pleural cavity.
SORE HAS NOT HEALED.
An operation had to be performed on
him to remove the pus which formed in
the cavity from the Irritation of the
bullet. The Incision was made close
to the bullet wound, and Is not healed
up. because It Is draining off serous
Mr. Mink Is a rugged old man, and
has a serene temper, notwithstanding
his Infirmity. He Is heroic and cour
ageous, and not troubled with many
fears. To a Tribune reporter he hur
riedly related some of his experiences.
When 17 he left his home in Germany
and went north to Poland, from there to
Sweden, where he embarked on a whal
ing vessel bound for South America.
That Is 4tf years ago, before the modern
steamships were In vogue, and It was
a year before they reached the harbor
of Buenos Ayes, In the Argentine Re
public. His next trip was north to New York
and after a short stay left for the
frontiers. The greater part or his
grown up lire was spent among the
cowboys and he was one of them. He
bared his left leg and exhibited an
encysted bullet next to the skin. That
was given to him by a redskin before
those who are how men were born.
On his head Is a depression large
enough to contain a marble where an
Iron bolt eighteen Inches long struck
hlm with terrific force. On his left
shoulder Is a scar 12 Inches long where
he was ripped with a knife, and on the
upper fleshy part of the thigh he has
marks which would seem to Indicate
that he was struck with a charge of
railroad spikes and grape shot.
The plates will be developed this
morning and the result Is awaited with
Mr. Alyn is here selling X-ray Instru
ments and It Is for the purpose of in
troducing them In Scranton that he
came; he heard about Mr. Mink and de
cided that he would be a good subject.
The success of the test will be of In
terest not only In this city, but also
throughout the country. Mr. Alyn Is
registered at the Arlington hotel on
Franklin avenue and expects to re
main In town ten days.
