Sail Over a Judgment Note.
Schloss.Cokb Cnwc Amicably St t
tlcd After Juries Twice Disngrcra
About ThcuiTho Cases Con
tinncd-.Othcr Doings in Court.
On of the hardest fought oases that
the present term of common pleas court
has witnessed Is that of At- A. McCar
thy, of Ashley, against Mirsaret Scan
Ion, administratrix of the estate of
Martin Scnnlon, deceased, which was
called for trial before Judge ArchlmM
in the Federal court room yesterday
morning. OT.rien & Kelly represent
the plaintiff, and Attorneys M. 1'. Caw
ley. F. J. FitJtsimnions and Watson &
Zimmerman, the deiense. At ndioiirn
inent yesterday the case was only fair
ly started owinjf to the constant
wrangling of the attorneys. An offer
was insisted li'ion in almost every in
stance w hen a new witness was called.
The action Is to recover $1.0Wi prin
eionl ami Interest on u Judgment note
which Martin Scanlon ijave M. A. Sle
Curihy. July 13, isss. The plaintiff al
leges that it was given in considera
tion of cash value. The defendant al
leges that there was no consideration,
and that consequently it is not binding.
This is the second trial of the ome.
A verdict was Riven for the plaintiff
in the former trial but the supreme
court when appealed revoked the ver
dict and nrdcrnd a new trial. In tho
til Ht trial the plaintiff's attorneys
brought out on cross-examination that
the note was give.i to protect Air.
Scanlon against a man named Ityan
who was suing him for $10.(khi damage.
Judge C.uuster. the defendants alb g -d,
before the supremo court, charged the
jury to the effect that the defense di
rectly admitted this intention of fraud
while It was. they argued, only brought
out on cross-examination. This is sup
posed to he one of the principal rea
sons for the new trial.
Yesterday the plaintiffs attorneys
tried to reintroduce this matt'-r of
fraud but notwithstanding two hours
of the clusest questioning by Mr. Kelly,
of Mrs. Scanlon, it was not success
ful. When the case, which was first on
the list, was called. Colonel Fitzslin
moiis moved for u continuance- but It
was denied. The plaintiffs only wit
ness in chief was lion. T. V. Powdor
ly. who Id-'iitilied the signature on the
note as that of Mr. Scanlon.
THEORY OF THE DEFENSE.
Mr. Cawley .onened for the defense
outlining in :i ch-ar and concise way
what they proposed to show, which In
brief was that there was no considera
tion whatever, it was barely Intimat
ed that the note was jriven to protect
Mr. Scanlon as noted above nnd to de
feat the claim of the dower Interest of
his wife, it was njso averred that Mr.
McCaithy never made (bound for the
payment of the note until after Mr.
Scaplon's death, nlthourli the time on
the note had expired, several years
previous to ids decease.
Mrs. Scanlon, the defendant, when
cnlU-d to (ho stand after the dinner
recess, testified to several conversa
tions w ith Mr. McCarthy, during which
he told her that there wns no consid
eration on the note in question or the
others on record in court, and not to
worry about them. One of these con
versations was in her room, while she
was ill, following the birth of her
child i In I1!). Another occurred on a
street In Wllkes-Bnrre, The defendant
with Mr. Scanlon were on their way
to Ashley to secure the note. They
encountered Mr. McCarthy driving to
wards the central pari of the town,
anil she imnartuned lilm to go buck
with them that they might get the note.
He pleaded pressing business and said
It would be Impossible for him to turn
back, but assured Mrs. Scanlon again
that she shotiliV not worry, that, as
her husband and he had told her. there
was no consideration on the notes, and,
that there would never be any bother
about themv He nlso chilled her for
continually worrying her husband
about the notes and for doubting their
Mr. Kelly tried to bring out what the
notes were given for, if there had been
no valuable consideration, but Mrs.
Scanlon answered that she had never
heard, did not know, and at the best
could f.nly guess. As a guess does not
court on the witness stand. Mr. Kelly,
not a little perturbed, allowed her to
quit the stand without Insisting on
finding out what her guess inlj:ht be.
SHE HEARD IT ALSO.
Anna Quinnan, Mrs. Scanlon's daugh
ter by her first husband, who lived at
the Scanlon home for a time, was next
called. She testified to having over
heard the conversation which Mrs.
Scanlon alleged took place in her sick
room. Mr. McCarthy, she said, told
Mrs. Scanlon that there was nothing
given for the notes, and not to lie
bothering her head about them. Mn.
Mary Ann Tobin, who worked In the
capacity of a household servant at the
Scanlon residence in lsS9, swore she
saw Mr. McCarthy there and heard a
conversation between him and Mrs.
Scanlon concerninc notes. She was
ironing at the time and onlv accident
ally heard the talk, and as it did not
concern her she did not pay anything
more than casual attention to it.
Here the defense rested and Mr. Mc
Carthy being called in rebuttal, went
on the stand and swore that he not
only did not have the conversations
which Mrs. Scnnlon and the other wit
tiesses testified to, but positively nf
fii'med that he was never inside Martin
Scanlon's house after fcis marriage to
the defendant, and that he never met
Mrs. Scanlon In Wllkes-Harre or Ash
ley, except once on a Sunday, when
she came down to see him in company
with a Mrs. Martin to try to induce
him to have Mr. Scanlon sign over his
property to her, arguing that she could
managed belter than her husband, who
was getting caieless ' regarding his
business affairs. He also testified that
he loaned money at various times to
Mr. Scanlon nnd that the note in ques
tion was civen him for the considera
tion of $1,000 cash. He and Mr. Scan
lon, he said, were old friends, having
known each other for over thirty years.
John J. Hniwn of the firm of Cut ni y
& Itrown, testified to meeting Mr.
Scanlon on a Jersey Central train one
day in the summer of 1SXS. and hearing
from him in the course of a conversa
tion that he (Mr. Scanlon) was going
to AshleV to borrow some money from
his old" friend,- McCarthy, whit had
often loaned him money and who would
favor him in that manner any time he
wanted it. Home months after Mr.
Hiown stated, he saw Mr. Scanlon and
was told by him that he had goit n
"what he went after that day." At the
conclusion of Mr. Brown's examination

The Building Trades Council re-organized
last night at an enthusiastic
meeting which was held in Hulbert's

Keifer is the duly authorized organ
iser, and will be glnd to hear from
any painter wlij wfshes to join; his

The Trades intends making a move
toward the st mi-monthly pay. There
re several of the builders and con
tractors already complying with this
law, hut the majority are not. This is
especially the case with those employ
inn, carpenters and painters. All those
unions not represented at last night's

DECORATIONS OF THE ROOMS.
To test the views of the members, W.
D. Kennedy moved that the wal.s of

suite, be treated after an ccunoinl" plan
suggested by a local dee-orator, who es
timated the co.-t at lino.
Conrad Schrocder. the contractor who
erected the building and who hi an
active mid iniluential member of Hip
board. opposed the cheaper scheme.
He remarked upon the architect's Idea
In planning the rooms on a scale th.it
Invited a rich ami artistic decorative
treatment. The effect would be harsh
and unattractive if the dtcirations
were other than thoroughly in keeping
with the architect's ideas.
Mr. Schroed r remarked that a num
ber of the board's prominent inemb. rs
were willing to personally contribute
t iward the expense. A taigg?stloii that
an appropriation be made from the 1W7
dues did not meet with much favor.
Ciilnnel F. L. Hitchcock's motion, sec
onded by Mr. Lansing, that the board
approve tho elaborate plan of decora
tion, and that it be referred to the
building committee, In conjunction with
President W. A. May and Mr. Schrocd

Colonel -Hitchcock expluliied that In
past years a great deal of Inlluencc
and piesllge had been lost to th 1 Scran
ton delegates in the national meeting
because of the absence of any import
ant and delinite action that such dele
gates had to suggest according to In
structions from the local board, 'i no
next congress, he said, would have t.i
devote most of its energy and time to
financial legislation. In consequence he
suggested that the Scranton deli Rates
present to the National board the fol
lowing resolution adopted ut its lwii
meeting for presentation to c uigre.s:
Itoolvcd. That In the lodgment of th"
national hoard of trade the establishment
of a sound, staple nnd rllicient monetary
system if essential to the restoration of
confidence and the prosperity of our in
dustrial Int. rests, and such restoration is
nn immediate and urgent duty of con
giess; that the cssentlnl iprovlsinus in
such a system should Include the relief
or the government by the retirement and
cancellation of the l?fial-tcnder notes,
under cafe and proper conditions as to
time and method; also provision for the
revision o9 the n.'U'onal banking system
miller conditions which will maintain our
monetary standard end secme to the
country a safe anj ample currency to
take the place of the notes so retired.
Mr. Lansing moved that the follow
ing be added to the Hitchcock resolu
tion: Resolved, First, that In order that there
may be no contraction of the currency by
the cancelling of legal tender notes; that
it hp recommended to e'ongress that the
amount of capital required for the estab
lishment of national banks in towns,
cities or villages tuning a population of
less than B.injm be reduced to .Ti.o.i and we
n commend that congress authorize an
Issue of none-lnterest paying lunula to the
amount of 1,ihio.ii.i.i1iji for the purpose iif
recuring the circulation of national banks
to he sold to national banks nt par tj be
only used as collateral In exchange fer
niiticu.il bank notes and that such Issue
be made up to full value of bunds,
CAPITAL OF NATIONAL BANKS.
The enly portion of Mr. Lansing's
resolution adopted was that which
read "That it be recommended to con
gress that the amount of capital re
quired for the establishment of nation
al banks in towns, cities nnd villages
having a population of less than .'i.Oi.O
be reduced to $ ifi.ooo. Colonel Hitch
cock's resolution was ndopteej entire.
The discussion on the two occluded
about forty minutes.
Coloivl Hitchcock moved that the
Scraiiteqi delegates be authorized fo

Mexico and the Central and South

Not a little merriment was occasioned
by the reading of a letter, addressed to
the secretary, from an Inventor in a
nearby locality who evidently has a
barrel full of ideas on tap, waiting to

them along. A water wheel, a wind
mill, n steam cooker, an electric device
for killing foliage worms, a fruit pre
serving apparatus and a scheme for
making a medicinal kind of air which
prevailed "during the times of Adam
nnd Methusaleh" were among his
Ideas. A motion ptevniled that the let

that the genius be requested to for

Pennsylvania graduates headed by

had not the semblance of team play and
no signals, they could not advance the
