BOY WAS USING
HIS FATHER'S GUN
One of the Barrels Burst and He
Was Almost Instantly Killed
While Rabbit Hunting.
Mllo Ijitlley. a fourteen-year-old lad.
residing In Clark's Summit, was killed
ysterdny afternoon by the accidental
bursting of a shotgun. The boy's
father, Tlllmiin Dalle.y, was In this city
doing some carpenter work, and his
mother was In Stroudsburg. spending
Thanksgiving with relatives.
He skirted out on a limiting expedi
tion with a number of boy companions,
taking with him a new double-barreled
shotgun, which his father had recently
presented him with. They were about
a mile outside the town when a rabbit
was espied and AIllo, having the best
gun, was allowed to take llrst shot.
He aimed carefully, but when he
pulled the trigger the gun exploded und
the breech pin struck him fairly in the
forehead with terrific force, rendering
him unconscious and fracturing the
skull. He lived but about five minutes,
passing away before any of his panic
stricken companions realized the seri
ousness of the situation.
Conservatory Pupils Entertained
Friends in Guernsey Hall.
The twenty-third public recital of tho
Conservatory of Music last evening, In
Guernsey hall, proved to be one of the
most interesting ever given by that In
stitution. Tlie work of the school was
splendidly demonstrated in piano solos
and ensemble playing.
The soloists were the Misses Mat tie
Kline, Nellie Sclilager. Genevieve Khr
good, Ethel Bevan, Norma Johns. Anna
Vorls. Grace Drowning, Grace Gciiock,
Emma Bone, Clara Browning and Jlr.
"N'llkins. All of the solo numbers, many
of which were very tlllllcull. were
played from memory, and exhibited
ample technique, cxptesslon and the
most careful use of the pedal. Special
mention should be made of Iho playing
of Norma Johns and Grace Browning,
who, for children of their age, do re
It is not surprising that special In
terest was manifested by tho largo
audience in the children's classes,
which exhibited the results of a few
months with beginners under the Fnel
ten method. Pieces were charmingly
played by children of from six to nine
years of ngo at four pianos, in perfect
time, and all from memory. Of this
number was tiny little Marjory Chris
tian, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. P. P.
Christian, who is the youngest child in
Other classes further showed the ad
mirable training' from the real music
lanly standpoint by playing pieces from
memory and then re-playing them In
any keys asked for by the audience.
An Interesting feature which showed
that this knowledge was not confined
to those who were nt the keyboards
was the recitation In concert of tho
degrees of the different minor scales
demanded by the audience by a largo
number of young students who sat
near the platform. To bo able to do
this, those who played and those who
recited had been obliged to learn to In
stantly transpose their pieces into any
of the fifteen minor keys and play them
at the same time from memory.
The ensemble work at four pianos by
eight players Is always a. part of these
recitals which Is thoroughly enjoved.
The selections performed were the
overture to "Prometheus," by Booth

CANT BE GOVERNED
IN THE SAME WAY
Councilman Keller's Ideas About a
Second Class City, After a Visit
Common Cuuuclhnnn Luther Keller,
of the Seventeenth ward, has returned
from Pittsburg, where ho served as a
juror in Hie United States court, and
lie 1ms l'ottlfntwl not- ttt nil i.lo'iuml wllli '
the prospect of Scranton entering the
same class as that city and a similar
form of municipal government.
"1 was surprised," said he In a con
versation last; night with a Tribune
man, "at the wonderful wealth of
Pittsburg. T had never been in the
city long enough on previous occasions
to get any conception of the remark
able industrial development oft this
metropolis of the western part of the
state. Why, Pittsburg is one of tho
wealthiest cities in the United States.
"Her steel mills, her Iron founder
Ies, and her other Industries stretch
along the Ohio and Slonongahela riv
ers for miles. She is a large railroad
center and the tonnage of the freight
shipped from her depots and wharves
Is said to bo the highest of any city
iu tho world.
"Just think of this for a minute and
then think of Scranton adopting tho
same system of municipal government,
Remember, too, that Pittsburg Is 200
years old and that Scranton is but for
ty and that the Interest on her city
debt is about as much as the entire
annual budget of this city,
"I'll admit that I haven't given the
second class city law a very careful
consideration, buc I maintain that any
sane man, without any knowledge
whatever of the laws governing cities
of the second class, If ho studied tho
conditions existing in both cities care
fully, could riot help arriving at tho
conclusion that both could not bo gov-
"I don't think It possible for any
law to be devised that will moot the
requirement of both Scranton and
Pittsburg, The thing, to my Jmlnd, Is
Impossible, I hope I'm wnhig and
that some such law can be devised,
but I'm afraid I'm right,
"The laws now governing Pittsburg
and Allegheny were adapted to the
needs of these two cities and theso
two cities alone. They find now that
tho system provided by them Is cum
bersome and expensive. If it Is cum
bersome nnd expensive for these two
cities, what will It bo to Scranlon?
"I think perhaps tho best solution of
tho dlfllculty Which I have heard
comes from School Controller Jen
nings, with whom I wus talking today.
He suggests having nu amendment to
tho third class city law passed by tho
legislature providing that cities of tho
third class shall bo those having a
population under U'5,000, Instead of
100,000, ns at present.
"This would enable us to continue
under tho present system, which, bad
as It Is in some respects, Is better
than a second class city law which
Is adapted to tho needs of a city three
Wines as largo us Scranton und twenty
times as weulthy,"

MOTIVE NOT A
MEMBERS OF SCHOOL BOARD
CORRECT AN IMPRESSION.
They Contend That the Special Com
mittee Just Appointed Is tojuook
After the Interests of the Scranton
School District Rather Titan After
Interests of Board of Twenty-one.
Mr. Jennings Points Out What the
Committee Can Accomplish by
Making a Serious Effort.
The special coinmltee of the board
of control which Is to recommend the
passage of such legislation ns may be
necessary for the Scranton school dis
trict under tho second class city clas
sification, has now been appointed and
the members expect to get right down
to business nt once.
President Jayne hits announced the
porsonel of the committee. He
himself will act as chairman
and the other members' are
as follows: AV. A. Stay, T. J. Jen
nings, Jacob Schaeffer, A. B. Eynnn
and A. L. Francois. This is a thor
oughly representative committee nnd
It has a deal of work ahead of It, which
cells for careful and Intelligent
Tlie members who wore most active
In securing the passage of the reso
lution providing for the appointment
of the committee are especially de
sirous: of having It announced that
there Is no selfish motive behind the
movement. In other words, tho com
mittee was not appointed with the ob
ject of furthering the liitmests of the
present board of twenty-one. but ra
ther with the view of securing the pas
sage of legislation necessary when this
city becomes a city of the second
'" 'silt. JENNINGS' VIEWS.
Sir. Jennings, who is. one of the
members of the committee, gave a'
brief and pithy summary of the work
which could be accomplished by such
a body to a Tribune man yesterday
"The only general act," said he,
"governing school districts in cities of
the second class is the act of lSt'5, and
this has been declared null and void
by tho Supremo court and no school
district can operate under It. It may
be that the Supreme court might re
verse its ruling decla'ring the act un
constitutional, but until tills Is done,
and I don't think It over will be done,
tho act is inoperative.
"It will be necessary for Scranton to
have som? kind of legislation adopted
for its use. Pittsburg und Allegheny
have old special acts under which they
are operating and they do not need to
pay any attention to the act of ISM.
But these old acts are cumbersome and
complicated and the necessity for a
new general law Is becoming more
apparent every day.
"If Pittsburg and Allegheny are go
ing to agree upon an act governing
school districts In cities of the second
class it behooves Scranton to get Into
the deal, to use an expression of the
street, ajscrunton should have somo
say and that's just where this commit
tee can do good work.
"This committee can send a man
down to Pittsburg to confer with those
who are preparing an act down there,
if such an act is being prepared, He
could act under the 'direction of the
committee and make such suggestions
as tlie committee would In Its wisdom
"If Hie people down In Pittsburg or
Allegheny would refuse to consider
Scranton's claims then this commltte"
could get up an net of Its own and do
lobbying on Its own hook in Harris
burg to secure Us passage or to see
that Scranton Is considered In any
legislation being passed. This city
can't afford to sit Idly by and allow
other cities to say what laws shall
govern cities of the second class.
"This committee wasn't formed to
look after tho Interests of the present
board of twenty-one and see that it is
kept In power. That Impression has
got out, but it is an erroneous one.
This committee was formed solely
to look after the Interests of the Scran
ton school district. We don't care
whether It's a board of twenty-one or
a board of fifteen, so long as Scranton
gets a fair shake."
Tho resolution providing for the ap
pointment of tho committee gives It
practically unlimited power. It pro
vides that it shall "have power to act
for the board in consultation or other
wise." These last two words cover
pretty nearly everything I hut one could
Cntll some new act providing for a
system of government for school dis
tricts In cities of the second class la
passed or until the supreme court re
verses Itself and declares tho act of 1S03
to be constitutional the .present system
will continue In operation and there
are some members of llto board. In
