To Date Heads of Departments Have
Expended $5,158.71 Moie Than
the Appropriations for Year.
An examination of Controller How
oil's ledgers yesterday by a Tribune i
man revealed the fact that deficiencies
amounting to $ri,l."S.7l have been cre
ated by the heads of various depart
ments s-n far this year. I
This Is an especially largo amount, j
Inasmuch as the llseal year is only a.
little more than halt expired. The do-
flciencles aie divided among the several
departments, as follows: Fire depart
ment, $u,&!2.01: city clerk's department,
SS-1.19; city treasurer's department.
J1H(!."1; street commissioner's tlepart
i ment, SS.-I.S.1; boaid of health, $36.23;
I parks department, $5.21; total, $r;,15S.71.
I This, of course, does not Include any
. deficiency bills which may be on file In
. tho offices of the various heads of do-
partments and which they may have.
I neglected, purposely or otherwise, to
, send to the auditing committee for ap- ,
pi oval. ,
' The controller, in discussing the mat
ter yesterday, said thai, although he
' ivn nnnnrr1 tn Itir. CM-nnflnn rf dnflr.-
iencies, he could not see where any oC
the present deficiency bills had been
needlessly contracted. Especially was
this true of the fire department, ho
said, where the chief had been obliged i
to contract these obligations, possessed l
as ho was with the knowledge that in
contracting them he was cieatlng de
ficiencies. "It would seem to me," said he, "that
councils -should by resolution, if not by
oidlnance, direct such purchases wher
over they are absolutolyliucossnry, in
order to relievo tho department heads
from any Individual responsibility." i
The amount of deficiencies created so
rar tins year almost canals, the entire i
amount created last year.

August last on the charge of biibery
and was held in 53.000 bnil by Alder
man Fuller. In their return made last
Wednesday, the grand jury ignored th"
bill against him. From a remark made
last night by Special Agent Wilson, it
would appear that tho league has Its
doubts about this last grand jury.
While conversing ivlth a Tribune

there were Just exactly eleven mem
bers present. Mr. Oliver, who hereto
fore had been In favor ut the ordin
ance, voted "no" nnd this prevented
the measure from receiving tho neces
sary eleven votes. In voting "no" Mr,
Oliver explained that ho did so be
cause he had been "led Into a trap."
Tho trap he referred to was tho fuel
that Mayor Molt had Just vetoed the
resolution directing- that $.120 bo ex
pended In making repairs nt tho Co

this ordinance contained an Item for
that spoclllc Improvement nnd Mr.
Oliver's point uob that Chief Blzel
mann should not have urged hint to
secure the passage of thli ordinance
nnd thou have urged tho mayor to vet,o

The point which Mr. Oliver over
looked was that no appropriation ex
isted until the ordinance making tho
transfer was passed. Tn other words,
tho resolution which Mayor Molr ve
toed should not have been Introduced
until after tho passage of tho ordin
ance. It 1h extremely probable tlmt
action will be reconsidered nt the next

a. case which has been pending before
a board of examiners appointed by
Immigration Commissioner Hodgers,
of Philadelphia for tho past few days.
II nppnnis that the celebrated Dowle,
the head of the 5Clnu church of Chi
cago, some time ngo conceived the
idea of establishing an industrial
town in Waukegan, Illinois, where he
proposed to establish a great lace fac
tory. He conferred with Secretary
Cage and CcnunlsMoncr General of
Immigration Powdcrly regarding tho
importation of several skilled opera
tives lrom England to instruct the
other hands whom ho proposed to en
BSPe. lie was told that hn could Import
such operatives if he could provo that
the industiy to be established was a
nw one, there being a clause in tho
contract labor law which permits tho
importation of operatives lor the pur
pose of establishing new Industrie.?.
Uowio went to Kngland and engaged
ilia operatives, five in number.
They ai rived in Philadelphia on
Tuesday on board the American liner

orously protested against by the ex

union, which contended that the in
dustiy they were to establish was not
a new one and that If thoy wore al
lowed to land that competition would
ensue. which would seriously affect the
inteicsts of the lacow orkers through
out the country.
The committee contended that thu

Apartments Avo Dally Thronged
by People Who Could Plnd a Bet
ter Use for Their Money Than
Buying His Alleged Information.
The mystic art of clalrvoyuucy Is
again represented by tin exponent In
Seranton, and every day the apart
ments of Kent Lord, palmist and fortune-teller,
tit 313 Mulberry street, are
thronged with persons, who, after de
positing sums varying all the way
from fifty cents and one dollar up to
ton dollars, depart with tho promise of
a future In which tho height of suc
cess, beautiful, fair women nnd mys
terious dark men are mixed,
Tho palmist himself Is a really re
markable man; that is, If one Is willing
to believe all that ho says.
A native of 'the Emerald Isle, he Is a.
graduate of the Trinity College ot
Jlcdlclue al Dublin. Kesldes being a
practitioner, he was once in "the legiti
mate" nnd played heavy roles In tlio
support of Fdwln Booth, Dion Bouci
cault, and other great actors. His elulr
voynncy Is an acquired art, but it
would be unjust to Dr. Lord's histri
onic powers to say that while In hli
sean'COH he docs not prove himself a
very apt pupil of ids famous maslors.
A Tribune man was among the guests
of the palmlf-t yesterday.
Although ushered Into the apart
ments at an early hour, he found him
self preceded by three women and a
man. Tho male part of this assembly
was a rather seedy-looking individual,
who could put his money to better use
than peering into the future. The wo
men were ordinarily dressed and Ihcy,
loo, did not seem to be enjoying any
excess ot funds. The number Of visit
ors swelled every moment, and inside
of about three-quaiters of an hour
there were fourteen persons in tho
room. Several of these were young
gills, apparently domestics in private
One woman, as she emerged from her
Interview, had a rather dubious,
puzzled look upon her face, and when
asked by a filend whether the seance
was satisfactory, gave an alllrmativo
"And did lie tell ymt your name?"
was asked eagerly.
"Oh, no," replied the woman, who
was well on in years, and had a face
streaked with lines of care and a fore
head lined by deep furrows. "Oh, no,
lie didn't tell me my name, but he said
I'd had lots of trouble, an' the Lord
knows that's true."
The -woman seemed much surprised
that the clairvoyant had stiuck the
nail so beautifully.
Others who came out wore not so
satisfied and angiily declared Lord to
be an impostor. At last it was The
Tribune man's turn. He entered the
private room, took a seat, and Dr.
Lord, who is a stout, complacent-looking
man with Svengali-llke eyes,
handed the sciibe a card, and directed
him to write upon this two questions
he desired answered, and incidentally
sign his nnmo and aflix tho exact date
on which he was born. While this was
being done, the palmist walked stealth
ily about tho room, and it is Just pos
sible thai he may havo cast a light
ning glance at the card.
When tho questions were written tho
card was turned over, nnd the palmist
summoned. Ho took the bit of paste
board, bade his visitor place his hand
upon his own and make some wish.
Whilo the scribe was debating within
himself whether he would i other suc
ceed President JIcKlnley or be at the
head of the Ice trust, Dr. Lord placed
the card in nn envelope and carefully
sealed it. thus disposing of any sup
position that he saw the inscription.
He then took Tho Tribune man's
hand and said, "Ah, you are of an ar
tistic temperament. You would make
a good lawyer, doctor, dentist, hyp
notist, medium, anything which le
quires tho exercise of brain." The vis
itor felt his head growing, and reflected
that he was undoubtedly getting satis
faction for the $1 bill paid tho palmist
to pull open the gates at the future.
After a. careful study of the hnnd,
the clairvoyant started. "Ah," ho said,
"Von were born under the worst sign,
of the Zpaiuc, Febiuary, near the twen
tieth day."
"Wonderful!" murmured the scribe.
"And now," continued the seer, as he
discovered a, peculiur line, "who Ji
Louis." and he smiled triumphantly, as
much as to say, "I've got your name
now, my lad." It may hero be men
tioned that tho little card was filled
oul hustlly and the name of the wiltcr
might linve been written a little illeg
ibly. "Louis," replied the scribe, "is ii
dear friend."
"Ah, yes, quite true," snld tho doctor,
who then proceeded to glvo a little dls-
sei ttitlon about Louis, and then took
another shy at tho name, this time get
