resolution tabled and sucooeded in do

making little or no effort to nave It
from death which circumstances show

Luther Keller, Ksii.
Dear Sir: in compliance with your re
quest for an opinion with lefereme to
tne method of assessing the cost of pav
ing Mulberry street, would say. thut in
my opinion, under the law and the ordin
ance, as passed by councils, the city engi
neer would not bo Justified In 'making an
assessment upon any other basis than an
dual apportionment of the entire costs
and expenses upon ull the properties upon
tho street. I have no doubt of the power
of councils to make an equitable provision
in their ordinance for the varying widths
of the streets in different blocks by provid
ing, as was done In the case of Pint- street,
for the assessment of each block separate
ly: nnd I nm of opinion Hun the oidiuaiie
already passed could be amended or a
supplement passed to It, making provi
sions for assessments In that niunuet.
1 do not wish to be understood us saying
that if the engineer should, under the or
dinance already passed, make lie- assess,
un nt by block, It would lie lib gal. but I
think the method 1 have Inillcaied would
bt- he safer method for Itlm to pursue
under the ordinance as It was originally
passed. Very truly yours.

A resolution directing the city so

but when it went over to select coun
cil It was sent to committee. The
judiciary committee's recommendation
that the city solicitor be Instructed to

SELECT COUNCIL MEETING.
Communication or Mayor with tic
car d to Kinsley Investigation.
Mayor Bailey sent to select council
last night the following communication
regarding the Kinsley investigation:
To the Honorable, th B-dect and Common
Councils of the City of Scranton.
Gentlemen: 1 am in receipt of your
roncuirent resolution directing me to In
vestigate the affairs of the street com
missioner's department. The resolution
referred to Is not accompanied with nay
speellle complaints or charges against the
department referred to; and In the ab
sence of any such speellle charges I do
not see how an investigation can well be
conducted, or how the accused otllcials
can be propcrlv notified of the accusations
which they will be expected to meet.
If any member of your honorable bodies
or any other citizen will formulate nni
present to me any charge or accusations
or any definite Information upon which
they can be predicated, 1 shall be ready to
conduct the Investigation provided for by
law, as soon as the proper formalities can
be complied with.
Very respectfully yours,
James U. lUilcy, Mayor.
Mr. Wagner moved to receive and file
the communication. Mr. Chittenden
asked If the mayor had signed the res
olution directing hlin to investigate.
Clerk Lavelle answered that his hon
or had and at this a titter ran about the
chamber. Mr. Roche said that council
had nothing further to do with the
matter and wanted to let it rest where
It was. Mr. Wagner's motion was
passed unanimously and it looked as
If the Investigation would fall through
but when the sixth order of business
was reached alt this conjecture was
knocked In the head by the appearance
of the following resolution presented
by Mr. Wagner: j
Resolved by select council that in tln
matter of the investigation of the street
commissioner's department it Is the sense
of the select council thut the charges
made by the Sunday World in u recent Is
sue should be investigated.
Mr. Durr objected to the measure
arguing that council should not deal
with charses thai had not been regu
larly laid before the body. "I don't
know nnythlng about any charges
against Kinsley," said Mr. Purr. "If
you have any here I'd like to have them
read." Several of the members twitted
Mr. Durr for not "reading the papers
but none of them attempted to answer
his arguments. The resolution was
passed by an almost unanimous viva
Mr. Mi-Andrew introduced a resolu
tion extending the time for paying tax
es until Kecember 1. Messrs. Finn and
Chittenden fought against the measure
but the best they could do was to ef
fect a compromise fixing Nov. 23 as the
limit. This would they arsued give
nearly a week for the treasurer to get
things in Shane to meet the big bond

The resolution directing the city clerk
to refrain from advertising for bids for
paving Mulberry street, did not meet
the approval of the selectmen. Mr.
Sanderson left the chair to make a
speech against It and his arguments
that there was no good cause for delay
and his Intimation that those who were
trying to effect the delay did not rep
resent the majority of the property
holders in the street, hnd the effect of
killing the resolution. Messrs. Lansing
and Chittenden contended thnt it was
too late at all events to do the paving
this fall but this argument was una
vailing. When the resolution came over.grant
Ing the Valley Passenger Kailway com
puny the right to lay tracks on Wash

Chittenden to have It referred to com

It was concurred In by common coun
cil. A resolution was introduced re
leasing the bond of ex-City Treasurer
I. c,. lirooks and was referred to the
committee on treasurer's accounts, Mr.
Dutr raising the point thnt council
should satisfy itself that everything
Is all right before the bondsmen are re
leased. A resolution wns adopted providing
that hereafter asisgnments must be
made by the contractor In the presence

clerk, Heretofore it was pimply re
iiulred that the assignee present the

set upon by Farbe and Cardnman. The
former drew a knife. It was also al
leged that Cardainan kicked the little

that he had merely chastised his child
by spunking her when the people of
Rendham Interferred and placed him
self and wife in the lockup. Cardainan
he said had nothing to do with the chas
tising. The jury returned Curdumau
not guilty and Farbe ruilty.
