Tribute From the Legislative Branch of
WAS A VERY PLEASANT EVENT
Speech of Presentation by Colonel
George Sanderson and a Feeling
Response by Mr. Connell-.City
Officials Without Regard to Parly
Affiliations Tender Their Respects
to the E.Mayor-Copy of the Reso
lutions. The resolutions passed by council
upon the retirement of Hon. W. L.
Connell from the office of mayor were
presented to him in engrossed form at
hla home on Clay avenue: last night.
At the Invitation of the presentation
committee, consisting of the chair
man nnd five members of each branch
of councils, a lurpe delegation of city
fathers and heads of departments at
tended the function. They met in the
city clerk's oflli-e at 8 o'clock nnd pro
ceeded in a body to Mr. Conenll's: resi
dence, where they were warmly re
ceived by the ex-mayor nnd a few of
his most Intimate friends, Ex-Mayor
Ripple, William Connell, cx-Chief of
Police Simpson and George Barnard.
The presentation was made by Colonel
George Sanderson, chnlrman of select
council. In the course of his remarks
The members cf both branches of coun
cils have requested me. In their behalf,
to present to you these framed and en
grossed resolutions, Indicative of the cor
dial relations which existed between them
and you during your term ns mayor. The
presenting of these resolutions brings up
many pleasurable memories of the past
nnd how during the three years of your
Incumbency you filled the executive chair
with honor and credit, both to yourself
ami the city. We recollect the courtesy
with which you received us one nnd Ml
when we had occasion to have dealings
with you, and the respect paid our sug
gestions, even though these suggestions
might not have always met .with your
approval. You vuried with us nt lines,
but it was a respected variance and you
fell none In our esteem by reason thereof.
The rhief magistracy of a city of the size
nnd Importance of Scranton Is a responsi
ble position. If the chief executive ilo-s
not use good Judgment, error and conse
quent Injury must ensue. I echo the sen
timent of all of us when I say we uro sat-l.slli-il
with vour conduct while mayor of
this city. You had good judgment and
used It. I assure vou that In leaving the
otitce vou left behind you many warm
friends" and well wishers.
MR. CONNELLS RESPONSE.
Mr. Conhell's response In accepting
the present was full of feeling. "It has
been well said," he began, "that there are
occasions when words are Inadequate
to express one's feelings and I must con
fess that though I have had knowledge
of your Intended action, I am at a loss
on this occasion to adequately express
my Bfiitiinents. AVhen at the close of
my administration 1 laid aside the
cloak of authority, with which the peo
ple had vested me, there was in my
mind a great questiun. and cloud of
doubt as to whether or not I had been
a success or a failure as the executive
olllcer of this great, and growing city.
1 confess that up till tonight that
doubt and perplexity eontliuied to ex
ist. Hut your act tonight has removed
it. In presenting this magnificent gift
as an evidence of your esteem you have
given me credit for that which was
taught to me at my mother's knee;
that which my revered and honored
father ever held out to me as a beacon
light to guide my steps through life
you have given me credit for honesty
of purpose honesty above all things,
though the judgment might err. Gen
tlemen, I thank you most sincerely for
this testimonial you have given to me
and which I can proudly give to my
children a proclamation by forty-two
men who Berved with me that no mat
ter how often I may have erred in
judgment ilurlns these three years, no
matter how many wex my shortcom
ings I have been honest and upright to
myself, my family and my city. Gentle
men, I thank you."
When the applause which followed
this most honest and earnest speech
had subsided Colonel Sanderson arose
and read the following letters of re
gret: LETTERS OP REGRET.

SEHMO'S SKULL REMOVED
Postmortem Examination Conducted at
the Hospital by Coroner Long.
Coraner Longstreet empaneled a jury
yesterday afternoon to investigate the
death of George Sehmo, the Hungarian
who d ea at 2 o'clock yesterday afisr
r.oon at the Lackawanna hospital from
fracture of the skull sustained in a
drunk, n quarrell ut Sport Hill, nejr
tl.e Gypsy colliery In Dunmore, last
Saturday night. The jury empaneled
consists of Dr. E. M. Pennypacker, Dr.
Ck-orge A. Iilanchard, G. V. Chamber
Inin. O. M. Sltterly, O. M. Custard and
John T. Brown.
The coroner eonductcd a post mortem
examination, removed the top of the
dead man's skull, and after the Jury
viewed the body, adjournment was tak
en until next Wednesday .evening at 8
o'clcck at the orbutratlon room of the
court house to hear testimony.
There is a hole an Inch in diameter
in the top of tho skull, and theie wire
three small lacerations of tho scjilp.
Sel.mo's boarding bo.-s. Andrew Fallyo.
Is now In jail, charged with the mur
der and John llonta, another boarder.
Is also In jail as an accessory. The
dead man Is about 27 years old. unmar
ried, and has a brother in this coun
try. It was stated at tho time of the as
sault that Sehmo was shoved against
a stove, but the injured man in his
ante-mortem statement declared that
he was hit on the top of the head by
something bright in the hand of Pallyo.
Yesterday's post mortem revealed the
fact that the fracture of the skull coul.l
scarcely have been caused by falling
against a stove nnd the belief Is that
he was hit on the head by a hammer
or a grate shaker in the hands of
Sohmo's brother Is now In tho county
jail where he was committed on a war
rant sworn out by Pallyo for partici
pating In the light that resulted in
George Sehmo's death.
The Automntic Exposition on Lacka
It Is very seldom that an exhibition
In the city of Scranton excites so much
profound and commendable Interest as
has been evinced In that of Berg
mann's "Swiss Village" entertainment
on Lackawanna avenue, opposite the
Wyoming house. It Is a masterpiece
of mechanical skill, a prodigy of con
summated Ingenuity, and perhaps has
no rival anywhere as a specimen of au
tomatic expression. To all classes of
people, the Swiss village is not only a
wonder of mechanical art, but conveys
many lessons well worth heeding.
It tells of tedious labor, of unweary
ing patience, of unflinching energy and
faith In accomplishment. But the
grand old Inventor at lust triumphs
and takes his place among the great
artisans of the world.
This wondrous exhibit now combined
with Professor Berger's wonderful au
tomatic exposition, has been visited by
throngs of our best people, who could
scarcely find words sufficiently strong
to express their amazement and pleas
ure, and the liberal patronage will un
doubtedly be continued during the
short time it will remain In Scranton.
