KILLED ON TRACKS
Young Boy Who Lived in Nicholson
round Dead on Theodore Street,
Claude Walker, aged 15 years, a
resident oC Nicholson, met death on
he Lackawanna railroad near Theo

o'clock Sunday evenhuj and D o'clock
yesterday morning, when his man-sled-
remains were found strewn atons
tho tracks by a hunter on his way to
From tho marks on the head and
the peculiarity of the injuries sus
tained, there Is n. possibility of his
having mot with foul play In addition
to belner run over by a train.
Ills right lei? is completely severed
nt the knee joint, tho muscles having
been cut through, and his left hand
hangs' by a thread of flesh. There la
a compound fracturo or the skull over
tho left oye, extending1 across to tho
other side, and another fracture at
tho base of tho brain.
This latter Injury Is sufllelent to
have caused his death, hut how tho
fractures were caused is a matter of
conjecture. Over tho loft eye there
Is a crus' Ing of tho flsh and bono,
upon tho body of tho brain sufllelent
to produce paralysis of speech or tho
motion of the left nrm, and the brain
is depressed from one-half to threo
fiuarters of an Inch from the frontal
bone, Tho brain Is also conjested on
tho left side, and there Is a clot of
blood formed wheru .ho bono pene
trated the tissue.
These Injuries could easily have
caused his death, but how they worn
caused Is not known. From outward
appearances, It would neem they were
caused by some blunt Instrument.
Tho indications of foul play, however.
are found In tho cuts on his forehead
and face. Directly over tho left eye,
which Is discolored, there are several
sharp cuts, as. If caused by a knife
or razor, and there Is another similar
cut over tho right oyo, extending
along hs cheek and neck, which look
There'are ulso two abrasions of the
flesh on tho left side, between the hip
end the ribs, as If he had been kicked
or bruised. The theory that he met
With foul play Is drawn from tho na
ture of his Injuries. With his Bkull
crushed In, and his flesh cut, how ho
could managa to have his left hand
ami right leg Revered Is more than
Dr. Huberts could determine when he

THAT'S WHAT SCHOOL BOARD
DECIDED TO DO.
At Last Night's Meeting the Report
of tho Building Committee Direct
ing tho Board's Attorney to Go
Into Court and Have Controller
Compelled to Sign Warrant for
First Payment on the McNally
Property Wns Adopted Report of
the Board's Viewers.
The school board nt Its mooting last
night unanimously adopted a report of
tho building committee nnent tho Mc
Nally lots In Bellcvue directing tho
solicitor of the board to go Into court
and take tho necessary steps to ob
tain nn order of court compelling Con
troller Howell to countersign the war
rant for the first payment which ho
has refused polntblank to nfllx his sig
nature to because ho believes the price
paid to be exorbitant.
It will be remembered that the school
E. J. Northup, the owner of Northup Hill farm at Glenburn,
a'nd one of the foremost agriculturalists of this part of the state,
gives these reasons why he believes McKlnley should be elected:
"I am for the re-election of William McKlnley, on account of his
wise and patriotic management of this government during the paBt
four years, which will make his memory as lasting as Abraham
"An honest dollar and a tariff protecting our manufacturing in
terests, gives employment to the people, making them prosperous
and contented; therefore making demand for farm and dairy pro
ducts, and thereby gives the farmer a fair recompense for his labor,
who probably works more hours than any of the laboring classes.
"I am a farmer nnd therefore a Republican."
board entered Into a contract with P.
McNally, of the Sixth ward, for the
purchase of two lots, each FJOxloO feet,
the consideration to be $4,300 cash and
the old school property, including both
building and land, the district to be
allowed to use the building until such
time as a new structure was built. The
controller refused to sign tho warrant
for the first payment of $1,000, and had
two appraisers, George Cooper and G.
F. Reynolds, investigate and report
on the value of the property.
They leported that $2,100 and the
school pioperty was all that should 6"o
paid for the property nnd pointed out
that by purchasing the Corcoran prop
erty $1,800 could be saved. The con
troller ilguted out that the actual loss
to the district by purchasing the Mc
Nally property would be an even $4,000.
BIDS WERE RECEIVED.
The committee's report points out
that the controller of the Sixth ward
secured bids from various parties de
sirous of selling land to the district,
and that these bids were considered by
the building committee in open meet
ing and Mr. McNally's proposition ac
cepted after due deliberation.
The report states that the members
of the committee were not satisfied
with the report of the viewers appoint
ed by the controller because certuln
circumstances were not taken into con
sideration at all. Then follows the
report of two viewers appointed by
the building committee to look Into the
matter and appraise the value of the
various properties. These viewers
weie I. L. Williams nnd John Benore.
These two viewers value the McNal
ly property in its present condition at
$8,700; tho land being valued at $3,200
and the buildings at $5,.00. The value
of the school property which It Is
proposed to give Mr. McNally in ad
dition to the $4,300, is placed at $2,400.
Then tho viewers take Into considera
tion a fact which was not taken Into
consideration by the controller's view
ers. This is the fact that If any other
proposition than flint of Mr. McNal
ly's were accepted it would be neces
sary to hire annexes, while a new
building was being built. They figure
that thee annexes would cost to rent
for one year and to fit up properly
just $.,,r.l5, which added to $3,r,00, the
cost of the Corcoran lot, would bring
tho total up to $0,015, if the Corcoran
lot was purchased. From this they
subtract the $4,300 to ho paid by the
school board, and thus figure out that
the school board would lose $1,715 If
the Corcoran lot was purchased, com
paring It with the McNally proposi
tion. THEY OVERLOOK THIS.
The viewers neglec'el to add to tho
$1,300, their own valuation of $2,400
placed on the school board property
to be given to McNally In addition to
tho latter amount. Had tlioy dono
this, It would be found that on tho
face of It the McNally offer Is really
$0S3 above their own Ilgures on tho
Tho committee's report a little fur
ther oh, however, explains that In
case tho Corcoran property were
bought, It would be neeci'sary to erect
a retaining wall on it, an Improve
ment which would not bo necessary If
the McNalloy lots are bought, they
being on a level with tho street. The
fact is also mentioned that no annexes

the Sixth wnrd, and that It the Cor
coran ptopdrty wero bought It would
require the renting of a number. '
In conclusion the report stales that
tho transaction wiib entirely free
from any objectionable features nnd
directs the attorney of tho board to
go Into court to compel the controller
to Rlgn, Tho report was accompanied
with nn opinion from the board's at
torney, D. J. Iteedy. stating that tho
contract entered Into with Mr. Mc
Nally Is valid nnd that tho school dis
trict Is liable for tho full amount If It
falls to carry out Its part of tho
agreement. "Tho Bchool board," Raid
ho, '"Is tho exclusive Judge of the
location of a school, and their action
Is not reviewable by tho courts."
The following additional recommen
dations of tho building committee
wore also adopted.

District President T. D. Nichols
said to a Tribune man last night that
ho thought It very probable the strike
could be called off without the neces
sity of another convention, providing
the operators meet the one require
ment stipulated by President Mitchell.
All the district officers have been
called to meet with President Mitchell
nnd the national officers In Hazloton
tomorrow. If the compliance xvlth the
demand for a time guarantee Is gen
oral by tomorrow, It Is expected the
strike will be called off tomorrow
night or Thursday.
President Nichols further said to a
Tribune man that the efforts to stop
the xvasherles from operating wero
not directed from headquarters and
that, he did not deem such actions ex
pedient at this time. The report that
a general movement against the
wnsheries in and immediately about
Scranton xvas contemplated for today
had reached him as a tumor, he said,
and he' would send'woid out advising
that the movement be postponed for
As the Story Had It.
The story had It definitely that a
concerted move was to be made
against the Diamond washery by the
West Side strikers at 5 o'clock this
morning. They proposed to surround
the place xvlth pickets, located at a
good distance from the company's
premises, and endeavor by nigument
to dissuade tho msn from going to
work. Similar action xvas to be taken
at other xx-asherles, It xx-as stated.
The strikers succeeded in getting
out the workmen from the Grassy Is
land xxashery, at Olyphant, yesterday
moining, but did not succeed In shut
ting doxvn the plant completely. The
supeilntendents and bo&ses took the
workers' places and managed to load
about six cars during the day. The
strikers were on hand ns parly as 5 a.
in., and came from x'arlous directions.
One delegation came from Olyphant,
numbering several hundred, and an
other large contingent came from the
direction of WInton. They complete
ly surrounded the works and as the
xvnshery hands put in an appearance,
they xvere Induced to loin their ranks.
They sucseeded In this and crippled
the washery for the day. The crowd
stayed about the place till nearly noon,
when they gradually disappeared. The
strikers say they xvill bo on hand
again this morning.
Tho application of T. B. Hoxx'e to
have the strike raised nt his nexv
separator In Green Ridge, xx-as passed
upon yesterday afternoon by the dis
trict executive board, and granted.
Mr. Hox'o agrees to advance tho
wage? of his men ten per cent, and
to supply coal only to the schools.
Were a Trifle Wild.
Yesterday afternoon's local papers
xvere not quite as wild in their guesses
as usual, but their misstatements
make necessary a few little correc
tions. The denial by the Truth of
The Tribune's announcement of a
meeting of local presidents Sunday af

which no one but tho Truth seemed
to be Ignorant of.
