TRADERS NATIONAL BANK
Cor, Wyoming and Spruct
. AllHIE z
EX-aOV. PATTISON THE PRIN
CIPAL SPEAKER. S
The Only National Issue He Per
mitted Himself to Descant on Was
"Imperialism" and He Did Not Oo
Very Deeply Into That Though
President of a Bank and a States
man of No Mean Dimensions He
Failed to Make Any Allusion to
the Money Question.
It may havo b3cn accidental that
out of nil tho great army of avallahlo
ntunip speakers the local Democratic
managers should have Imported ex
Governor ltobort E. I'attison to ad
dress their rally In tlto capital of
Lackawanna county, but thoto aro
those who will not believe it. lluthur
will they bo prone to believe that Mr.
Pattlson's selection wus governed by
that same regard for the proprieties
that prompted Ilryan to ignore the
money question in Now York city, the
money center of tho country and which
impels others of their great speakers
to become oblivious of the trust riues
tlon when Mr. Croker occupies a seat
on tho platform.
Governor Pattlson fought tooth and
nail against the 1C to I plank four
years ago and but for the allurement
of winning tho distinction of saving tho
Pennsylvania delegation to the Chi
cago platform, ho would havo led the
threatened bolt. This, together with
ths fact that he is president of a bank,
made it a surety that the audience
would hear nothing of tho doctrine
that was discredited by an S.000 majori
ty tn this county in the last national
election, and tills, some will say, ac
counts for Mr. Pattlson being tho man
to discuss political issues to a Scran
ton audience from a Democratic stand
point. AVOIDED MONEY QUESTION.
True to the hopo and expectations
of the local managers, Mr. Pattlson
did not even touch upon the money
question. His speech was, in fact,
painfully devoid of reference to any
national issues, excepting a -weak and
timid reference to "imperialism." It
was particularly a state speech, being
almost wholly devoted to a rather
high-flown discussion of how the Re
publicans in Pennsylvania offend
against the fundamental principles of
our Republican form of government.
The other speaker from abroad was a
young man, Harry E. Grim, whoever
he Is, from Perkasle, Pa., who was ac
corded at the Democratic state con
vention tho honor of a nomination for
congressman-at -largo. M. F. Conry,
candidate for congress, also spoke.
Tho visiting speakers were met at
AVilkes-Barre bv Attorney Cornelius
f'omegys and Colonel Herman Osthaus
of the county committee. Tho latter
was particularly selected for the rea
son that he was on Governor Patti
son's military staff as Inspector gen
eral if rifle practice. At the station
the party weic met by County Chair
man ox-Mayor .lames .1. O'Neill, of
Carbondale, and Attorney I). .1. Reedy,
chairman of the executive committee,
and escorted to the Jcrnivn. .where
after dinner, they were called upon by
man) Democrats and a number of per
sonal friends of Mr. Pattlson, who dif
fer from hhu in politics.
At 7.30 tho county committeemen
and local candidates, headed by Law
rence's band, escorted the speakers to
tho armory. Chairman O'Neill and
Colonel F. J. Fltzslmmons rodo with
Governor Pattlson and Mr. Grim. In
the other carriages were Cornelius
Comegys, Colonel Osthaus, Mr. Reedy,
Secretary T. P. Duffy. Edward Merrl
ileltl and Candidates M. F. Conry, D.
J. Campbell. Thomas Law, Charles II.
Schadl, M. V. Norton, William Koch.
Jr.. C. G. Roland, .lames J. O'Malley
and M. D. Flaherty.
Tho Interior of the armory was still
embellished with tho elaborate decora
tions put up for the Republican rally
the night before, and the visitors, no
doubt, weie given the impression that
quite a fuss was being made about
The audience was as large a one as
the armory could comfortably hold. It
was not, however, a very enthusiastic
audience, or. If it was, it made no great
effort to display it. Only one really
hearty cheer marked tho progress of
the meeting nnd that was evoked by
Chairman O'Neill's clever Introduction
of ox-Uovernor Pattlson as "a gentle
man whose Democracy Is founded on
the ideas of Jefferson, and who saved
tho party from disruption at the Chi
cago convention." It was to bo ex
pected that a man who was vouched
for as the prototype of the party's
founder and the savior of the party
should get a good hand. It is also
to bo remembered' that Governor Pat
tlson is extremely popular in a per
sonal way among Scrantonians.
After congratulating the community
on tho settlement of the strike and
telling tho audience that he know of no
one in tho district better able to repre
sent it that "Hon. Mr. Conry," tho
distinguished speaker spoke a fow
encomiums of Mr. Bryan and then
launched forth on a dissertation about
tho "Right of tho Principle of Man's
Capacity for Self-Government." Somo
of his thoughts aru hero brleily given:

TO MAKE TEST CASE.
The City to Se Sued for a Deficiency
It can bo definitely slated that within
a short time suit will be entered
against the city for a bill contracted by
tho head of 11 department, tho appro
priation against which It was to he
charged having been exhausted at the
time of Its contraction.
Tho purpose of brlttfrlnsr Ihls suit will
be to make of It a teat case, that It
may be definitely and finally decided
by court -whether or not a city official
has the Huht to contract a bill with
tho knowledge that It could not be paid
out of that year'B appropriation and
would have to bo provided for as a de
ficiency tho year following.
The only ground on which tho city
solicitor can fight tho case is tho
ground that tho olllclnl avho created the
bill, and not the city, is liable for its
payment. A now point In law will bu
raised by this contention, and the de
cision of court will be watched with
Thero have altoady been contiacted
this year upwards of $S,O0O deficiency
bills, which will havo to bo provided
for In next year's appropriation, ordi
nance. If it is Judicially decided that
tho head of a department who creates
a deficiency is liable for ltn payment, it
Is aaTe to assume that there will be a
dearth of deficiency bills In the future.
NOW IN THE TOILS
He Is the Man Who Stabbed Gui
seppe La Bola Fled to Union
town and Returned Yesterday.
Raffaelo Saworta, who, Sept. -$,
stabbed and seriously wounded Gltl
sojipu La Rola, of Duntnore, was yes
terday afternoon arrested by Patiol
man Fiank Sacno, of the borough po
lice force, anil was arraigned before
Alderman Kasson and held In $,"00 ball.
Saworta fled 1'iom the city immediate
ly after the stabbing affray and went
to Unlontown. He returned here yes
terday to see his wife land child,
whom he had left In Dunmore.
Sacno has been working diligently
on the case, and heard from a friend
of Saworta's presence In tho city. He
followed his clue and yesterday after
noon located and arrested his man in
tho central city.
La Hula, the injured man, has now
recoveied from his wounds, which
were of a very grave nature and at
first expected to prove fatal. He was
a man of rugged health and good con
stitution, however, and this it was
which pulled him through to good
The stabbing was the result of a
quarrel between La Bola and Saworta,
both of whom wore miners at Dun
more shafts. One of the men called
the other a scab, and, both of them
being a little upset by splrituns and
vinous causes aud excitable by nature,
blows weio struck, Saworta's knife
made a sudden appearance and La
Bola was stabbed several times.

Tho petitions ato signed by the fol
lowing councllmcn: F. H. Clemon.s,
Thomas O'Boyle, C. F. Wagner, Char

There aro about 150 signers alto

It is understood that the petitions
were circulated by Select CounoUmon
Vaughan and O'Boyle, who hav.i op
posed the passage of the present meas
ure on the lloor of select council and
who yesterday presented the potitlons
to Mayor Moir.
Tho latter, when seen by a Tribune
man, said that Messrs. Vaughn n and
O'Boyle wanted him to call a Meeting
for this week. Inasmuch as the ordin
ance is likely to pass third and flr.al
reading in select council on ThuiEcluy
night. The mayor said that ho as
sured them that It would be useless
lo call u meeting this week, as politics

He lold them that even If the meas
uio was passed on Thursday night it
would not become effective until it re
ceived his signature, and he gavo them
to understunel that he would not sign
It at once, If ho had good reason to
believe that thero was a sentiment in
favor of holding a public meeting.
THE MAYOR'S OPINION.
"It's too bad," said he to tho Trib
une man, "that theie should be any
opposition to tho present plan. We'll
never have such a liberal offer fioni
the companies again and wo should
by all means take advantage.' of their
proposition. I shall take this matter
of calling a public meeting under con
sidciation, and 1 may decide to call
one for next week if 1 believe that
the best interests of tho city demand
a public discussion. I will certainly
not sign the oidlnance in a hurry."
The select councllmen opposed to the
viaduct ordinance are going lo put up
a stiff light in select council on Thurs
day night to prevent its passage and
several seen yesterday seemed to bo
very sanguine of having eleven votes
