Necessity for a Later Collection of
Malls Pointed Out and a Commit

terOther Matters Acted Upon.
Funeral of John Zlntel Meeting
of Republican Club This Evening.
Cases Before Alderman John.
A good representation of the mem
bership o the AVesl Side board of
trade attended tin? rcKiilar meeting;
Inst evening and for an hour nnd a
half discussed needed repntrs, the pro
gress or the viaduct ordlnunce, and
other matters of general Interest to
West Scranton. The most decisive ac
tion taken was In reference to secur
ing a later collection or Timlin along
main avenue, and the Immediate repair
of the streets now In need of atten
tion. The condition of South Main ave
nue at the Intersection or Luzerne
street, was brought to the attention
of the board. The surface water at
that point overflows tho crosswalk and
makes It almost impassible. Tho at
tention or Councilman Godshall will be
called to tho nuisance.
Another matter which requires the
immediate attention of the proper au
thorities is the condition of the gut
iters on Hampton street, between
Main and Ninth streets. The secretary
was instructed to notify the board
of health in relation to tho matter.
The sewer discharge from S. 15. Mott's
property, on South Main avenue, was
also referred to and the councllmcn
of the Fifteenth ward asked to have
tho matter attended to.
The opening of Pettebone street for
vehicular trallle was dlscussesd and a
communication will be addressed to
the owners of the West Park tract,
with a view to having the street prop
erly graded. The progress of the via
duct ordinance through councils was
discussed, and the members are of the
, opinion that every opportunity now at
band should be taken advantage of.
Members of the committee who at
tended council meetings in the inter
est of the project, reported what ac
tion had been taken up to date, and
the reports were received and the
committee continued. The proposition
of W. W. Watson for the sale of the
Hounds Woods to the city as a public
park was taken up for action and the
committee in charge of the affair was

Appears to Be a
About Globe Warehouse Suits for Ladies. Maybe it's
the tailoring or the ease with which we fit all coiners to
perfection, or it may be because the trimmings aud ma
terials are just as good as we could sell you at the piece
goods department, or perhaps it's because our styles are
different from those shown elsewhere aud hit the pop
ular fancy better. Whatever it is, one thing is certain

ARGUMENT OF THE
It Will Be Made Today Before the
Secretary of the Commonwealth
This afternoon at 1 o'clock, before
the secretary of the commonwealth,
at Hanisburg, tho city's rrote3t
against the granting of a charter to the
Ablngton Boulevard company will be
heard. The city will be represented by
City Solicitor Vosbutg nnd the com
pany by Attorney W. W. Watson.
Mr. Vbsb'irg leaves early this morn
ing and will be accompanied by As
sistant City Clerk Evan Morris, Se
lect Councilman J. J. Costello and
Mayor's Clerk H. C. Hat ton, who will
be pxamlaed as witnesses.
There are, of course, two things to
be argued, the question of law and the
Issue of fact. On the lormer ques
tion Mr. Vosburg will argue that the
Supreme court of the state has held
that no charter shall be granted to
any toll road company, having a turn
pike or boulevard, to operate a toll
load within the city limits, unless by
an act of assembly expiessly author
ising the granting of n charter of that
He will contend that the act of 1S95.
under which the application for a
boulevard charter was made, says
nothing about municiinlitics and that,
therefore, there should bo applied to
it the statement made by Justice Mit
chell in an opinion filed by him In the
Supieme court that "omission Is pro
hibition," in other wurrti that the
omission of an express clause author
izing the Issuing of a chartw to a
boulevatd company to operate within
the city limits, prohibits the grant
ing of a charter of that kind.
lie will argue that Iho general policy
of the law Is- against Interference with
the control of the streets, which Is
vested in cities for the reason that
the courts have universally lu-ld that
such interl'eionee by toll roads Is not
permitted unless the legislative enact
ment authorizing it is, In the language
of Justice Coulter, "so clear us to
leave no room for a reasonable doubt."
Mr. Vosburg, In arguing to prove
that the application for a boulevard
charter Is not made In good faith,
will contend thnt tho applicants are
all Interested in the Ablngton Turn
pike company, whoso road the new
company proposes to lease.
Section 3 of the act providing for
the Incorporation of boulevatd com
panies, provides that if a turnpike
company desires to broomo a boule
vard company It can do s:o by mersly
filing a surrender of Its old charter.
The fact that tills was not done, Mr.
Wsluirg will contend, is a plain evi
dence of bad fnlth, showing that the
company wishes to retain its old char
ter, tho forfeiture of which would r3
lear.o the city from its contract.
Mr, Morris will testify to Iho au
thenticity of copies of various ordi
nances and tho contract, which ate
to bo taken along, nnd Mr. Costello
will toll of tho condemnation pro
ceedings which liavo been begun. Mr.
Hntton will represent tho executive
